A portion  of the finger was crashed to pulp,  Dr Woodley dressed the wounded  band and thinks no amputation  will be necessary.  G. J. South secretary the Children's Aid Society,- has bee_ committed tO stand trial on a charge under  section 269 of the code.  The public meeting to hear John  Oliver, late member for the Delta,  took place last evening, the ball  being well filled. H. N. Rich was  voted-to the chair and introduced  the speaker with a few appropriate  remarks, stoting that it was apt a  party meeting by Mr Oliver's desire,  but only one to enable him to give  a straightforward account ef his,  stewardship.  Touching on local matters he referred to the River Rd., as now \n  a fair way for completion owing to  a straight vote of $6,000 being,  placed in supplementary estimates.  The very small npprtipriation of  £4.000 fdr'tbe district could not be  made to go^flttof far. The Yale Rd>  would take $_,oo.. There were 3,  or 4 jobs 'left unfinished 'from last  year, which bad to be completed  together With __r_e 'dtfr.r necessary  repairs which would use up tfeel  balance. He had Urged upon Mr  McBride tp appropriate $1,000 from]  contingent fund for tb*. main road  and had been assured that McBride  was favorably disposed.  With reference to the $1,000grant  for repairs to tbe frank Toad he read  a letter from the fcana_>_nd Works  department -assuring lthat it would  be granted.  Touching the Kebfenay "Railway  grant the speaker exhibited a map.  He pointed out the boundary of  the reserve in question from the in-  ternatiOnal boundary line on th*  Columbian River —for 124 miles-*-  He emphasized the fact 'that it was  still in reserve, .lid'be characterized  it as the greatest -scandal -on >th.  America*! Continent.  The simple fact was that the  C P R was. simply joggling with  the b c Government, Tbe members  of that Government whom he named  not only despoiled the Province, but  some of-them .perjured -themselves-,  at the inquiry and he sai_*b''p__lic-  ly and was prepared to take the  consequences.  It was not a question of liberal or  conservative, members of both parties came tb him and asked him to  hush up the matter, members went  to the government and made it a  condition of their support that they  must be helped in their Railways  and other schemes. It was no an  easy thing to stand almost alone to  bring these questions tbrongh to  light.  He would not hide tha truth  from them for the sake of any man.  He was informed that one of the  two blocks contained a large quantity of- coal—.n creditable authority  he might say tbe largest coal bed in  the world, it extends to Alberta and  the value is beyond conception.  In Sir Thos. O'Shaugaessy.  sworn statement, the coal - in that  ont block alone was more than the  value of the whole railway. The  member for South Kootenay told  him the seams of coal were as high  as a church.  There was something radically  wrong where tips were got from inside informrtion before locating that  land. That coal must be reserved  for the use of the people in spite of  certain newspapers in the province  hounding the government to give  the grants.  Ws should not sell any more coal land, oaly  less* them subject to conditions. The province  was enormously rich ln minerals, Immense deposits of coal, copper, fold, silver, lead and Iron  —rich almost beyond imagination. The forests,  Sshsrles snd ather bounties make it the wealthiest province iu America. Our policy was s  wrong system giving subsidies to railways. It  encouraged promoters snd speculators. They  get ths charters snd hold them for speculative  purposes; ttait Is why ao railwsys are being  built. They peddle their charters from province  'to province snd force others to buy Mhem out,  We went legislcUaa which will Indues capitalists  to com*.  Ths civil service had bees increased 4* per  cent, unjustifiably si a djaiaaiag grass, (of political heelers. The gavernatent should be put  sa s business foatlng. He quoted figures to,  support.  With regard to Ihe mine tsz it wss not fair to  tax the general community for the nice of the  mining Industry. Re was in favor of a rebate for  th* refining of our minerals la our own country  with out owa coal.  It wss common sense men wanted of honor  and principle—whether liberal or conservative.  He had done his best snd It remained for th*  elector* to continue the work.  Be hoped to have th* honor of sgsln represent*  lag th* richest agricultural district in the  province. He had never made the public inter'  est* subservient to any party although hewnss  liberal as they all kaew.  When Mr. nfcSrlde was called ap he told him  he Intended to ask him (Oliver) snd Paterson to.  join his ministry. McBride afterwards informed  him that he Intended tb form a straight conservative government. He did not aspire to e*bi-(  act rank snd if the electors had no ass for him  he could retire into private life.  H* urged the young men to register as the  onus of the province's [responsibility would  soon be thrown on them.  . The following question wss asked: "Who  would be your choice of teader?"  Mr. Oliver replied: -"It was considered advls-'  able to let the matter stand until the member*  had been elected. He had no maa In view, but  refused to support sir. Martin."  .The following resolution wss moved by B. A.  ■own seconded by A. D. Paterson snd carried by  a standing vote:  Resolved, thst this meeting approves af the  manner ln which Mr. John Oliver has representing Delta riding during the last parliament ot  British Columbia. That we consider _t* conduct  has been above approach, that he hss been ^ill-  gent ia the discharge of his duties, consistently  supporting >hat he believed to be right and  t-.tlesily exposing that Which tie knew to be  wrong, aad furthermore, having absolute confidence In his ability as s represestatlve we approve of sad endorse his ssndidsturc for re-election.  Alter a vote of thanks wss tendered to Mr.  Oliver snd the chairman the meeting adjourned.  The labor question at the Dunsmuir -mines is still unsettled.  i.i-i---i—nrr1 Tinm  The fishermen's 'union and the  cannery employers _#*. _et yet  come to terms.

There are now  42 members, and clause 10 defines  the Delta district as follows., "That  •tract of land contained within the  Jjmits of the municipalities of Delta  Surrey and Langley, including  Barnstone and McMillan Islands,  .jjhall constitute one electoral district,  to be designated "Delta electoral  .district," and return one member."  As all voters' lists up to June 16  have been  cancelled by  the same  Act, it is necessary for everyone to  .re-register.    A notice from the collection of voters appears in our advertising columns stating that forms  rof application may be had at am  post office or from his office at New  ■Westminster,     Persons   can   also  register at the City Council office.  -There are only seven weeks before  ,___ lists will he closed so that no  -• £ime should be lost.    We have already  pointed out that great care  has to be exercised in the filling in  pf the forms.    The name must .<•:  .in full and all erasures or blots must  i  be initialed.  It has been  suggested that the  jnen employed at the canneries will  lose their suflfages.    They will be  jen the fishery grounds now for registration,   qualified  to   vote  by  a  months   residence.     They   cannot  register here,   although domiciled,  as the act of registration must be  done personally.    When the elections are at hand the men will have  xeturned to their homes in the Delta  and elsewhere unable to cast their  .vote in the district where they reside.  Their only alternative is to travel  ijome hundreds of miles to vote in a  district in which they have only a  /season's interest.   Under the Act  ^bis is provided for, an elector duly  .registered notifies the registrar ofc  his departure for a new district, and  .receives a certificate wbich presents  io the registrar in bis new electorate  and his vote is recorded.    The fishermen,  hunters and others, when  business carries them away  from  their location must register somewhere by a month's qualification.  have been entered into competition. POLICE   COUR.T.

Tlie returns for British Columbia  are inconr-.'e'.c its tl.e average number of parous is not stated or the  amount paid to them fo: milk and  creair. The value of the butter  mad-j does not appear. Even the  Territories supply more detailed returns. Ontario of course beads the  list with output of over nine million  pounds valued at $1, 793,264, Quebec has 452 (refineries but the particulars of their output are not given.  Manitoba shows a decrease of one  million pounds for 1902 as compared with the previous year, and  Nova Scotia also shows scries of decreases for three years. New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island and  Britisli Columbia are all on the up  grade. The Delta creamery, it will  be remembered paid a dividend of  seven per cent last February at its  eighth annual meeting. The only  one in British Columbia doing so.  by John Holmes.  Before W. H. Ladner and R. E-  Kittson, J's. P., on Saturday 29th.  John Holmes appeared in answer  to a summons that he did assault  one Eliza Crawford by using ius_.lt-  ing, abusive and -obscene language  towards her at East Delta. The  accused pleaded guilty and promised not to repeat the offence.  The bench in consideration ol  the promise fined him $5 and $5  costs, to be paid in one week or  thirty days hard labor in Westmin-  s'.er gaol in   default   of   payment.  The camping out season is at  hand and in view of thisthe Superintendent of Forestry is sending his  annual notices calling special attention to the necessity for the greatest  caution being observed in the use  of fire by settlers, campers and  others during the dry summer  months. Heavy penalties are imposed for violation of the provisions  of the law iu this regard. For leaving a fire in the woods whereby  damage results a fine of $100 may  be inflicted, or three months imprisonment in default. Neither  shall anyone ignite inflammable  material in the open air on his own  land whereby adjoining or adjacent  property public or private, shall be  damaged under a similar penalty.  FISH OFFAL.  C. J. Fagan, M. D., secretary of  the Provincial Board of Health, is  sending out notices to the owners  and managers of canneries drawing  attention to the regulations in respect to fish offal. The secretary  points out the provisions of the  Health Act will be vigorously put  in force this year, and tbe following  are mentioned as contraventions of  the Act: Allowing offal to escape  into river, throwing dead salmon  into river, allowing dead fish or offal to remain on foreshore or in  water around cannery, want of  proper provisions for the disposal  of oftal and the prevention of its  escape into river. It is also painted  out that cannery surroundings and  foreshores must be kept clear of dead  fish, the owner., being responsible,  no matter where the fish came from.  Fishermen, or others, found throwing dead salmon into the river will  be prosecuted and a special constable  will constantly patrol the principal  rivers in order to insure the carrying  out of the regulations.

In the first opening of Oklahoma  to settlers in 1889, the editor of  this paper was among the many  seekers after fortune who made the  big race one fine day in April.  During his traveling about and afterwards his camping on his claim,  he encountered much bad water,  which, together with the severe  heat, gave him a very severe diarrhoea which it seemed almost impossible to check, and along in June  the case became so bad he expected  to die. One day one of his neighbors brought him one small bottle  of Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and  Diarrhoea Remedy as a last hope.

Paris is full of counterfeit coins, and  the cabmen make use of them quite ingeniously. You take a two franc flacro  ride, • and when you reach your -hotel  you !iu the generosity of your heart  give the cabman 3 francs.  You havo just got within the vestibule when you nortec the cabman has  followed you.  He apologizes, but the coin you have  given him is bad. You look at it Yes,  it is bad. It is nothing but a bit of  lead.  You are pretty certain in your mind  tbat it isn't the coin you gave the man  —which in ninety-nine cases out of a  hundred it isn't—but you don't care to  haggle in a hotel corridor and be subjected to the ignominious glances of  other folks as a foreigner who gives  poor French _-ab drivers bad money. So  you take the bit of lead and give a good  coin.  Of course the cabman bas changed  the coin.' You gave him a perfectly  good three franc piece at tlie start,  which le has in bis pocket, and he bas  MiifTed you into giving bim another 3  francs in exchange for a useless bit of  lead. To visitors to Paris let this be a  warning.  Similarity of Animals and Men.  It has been observed that if- the  tamed dog is taken back to tbe wijtl  itate he loses his voice. These "sounding voices" are produced in thb animal  throat in a way similar to human language, but are not "voices" proper nor  "languages" proper, and yet they are  full of psychological expression and n.  veal the animal's psychic states. If we  tickle a chimpanzee in the armpit, the  touch produces a grin on the face similar to that of a ifl_n under like circumstances. He also emits laugbterlike  sounds. The same is the case with tbe  ourang putang. The gorilla knits the  brow when angry, just like men.  We often observe in apes a complete  clfange in the facial muscles when  something is going to happen, be It  agreeable or disagreeable. It Is so also  with the child. In apes there is evidently the same connection between  the facial muscles aud vocal muscles as  iu man.  Bmbarr_js*sl_|r.  A settlement worker.'having been re-  I quested hy n-iixiou.s-mothers to nddn .-■  j the younger women of the settlcnii.'i;  , clubs on "heart interest"-topics,' decided to do so.   She talked with the girls  I earnestly, urging upon tiicm the dci \.  I and Intrinsic sacred-en« of all love and  marriage relations, the coarseness au-a  vulgarity of indiscriminate flirtations,  the great and growing need for high  ideals, standards and action on the woman's part.  Then, just as she took her  seat, it occurred to her that she might  have talked a little bit over the heads  of her listeners, and she sprang to.her  feet with an added remark:  "Please believe that what I say is  true, my dear friends," she exhorted  earnestly, "and please don't think I  don't understand my subject. I know  what I'm talking about, girls—I really  do."  Once more she took her seat, delighted with the air of general interest, and  from the rear of the room came tic  question:  "Please, Mrs. S., how many times  have you heen  in  love?','  | . Character D_il_in_.  Character is the wool of honor from  which n coat of mail can be .woven that  the swiftest arrow of shame or the  keenest knife of disrepute cannot  -* pierce. Every thought tlfttt enters cur  mind, every act we do and every word  . we utter adds a link to the golden  . chain.of character. The strength of a  steam engine can be estimated to within on 'ounce of Its limit, but it is impossible to estimate the force of a noble diameter. The hardest hearts are  8oftened;_nd the most repulsive dispositions become fascinating. Our failures and, our successes help to form a  reputation that'may be destroyed by  an external force, but the destruction  of a character can only be effected by  some iutermil force.—Our Boys' Magazine.  I       '" '"'       The Word "Jolly."  On the adoption of the word "jolly"  Into the English it bad the meanin,. of  .eauttful, as It has among the French  today. The English dramatist Beaumont of the sixteenth century speaks  of our first mother as "the jolly" Eve."  In time, however, it came to mean hi-  • larious, regardless of physical beauty.  But this latter meaning is probably  the right one after all, as the word  doubtless comes from Yule (Yu-le), the  pagan Christmas, so to speak, for be it  known that what we now observe as  Christmas day was a heathen holiday  called Yule, and the Yule festival was  one of noisy demonstration.  Yule indeed means noise or outcry,  praising in loud voice, chanting, singing, making outcry in- honor of their  „od. From yule, then, to jolly the stop  Is short and easy, both meaning revelry,   rejoicing.    Ours  is   a. risen   Lord,  : theirs the same.  The words are identl-  ! cal. So, too,-In largo degree the Christmas jollities, praises rind these of heathen YUle. Into such close relation do  simple words sometimes connect the  present with the past.  ■   finite   Necessary.  •'Well;" said the plain citizen, "there  •■•re always- two sides to a question."  ■  ''Of  course,"   replied  the diplomat,  * .therwlse how could we dodge it?"   -  -Her Reason.  jDr. .Porter had responded to a note  left at his door by a farmer asking  bim to go as soon as possible to see his  little boy, who had "a very bad cold."  . The doctor took one look at the child  and'turned tb "the mother.  "Don't you know your boy is coming  down with measles?" he asked severely.  ''Yes, doctor, I knew he was," -said  the woman.  'Thou what in the world did you  mean by writing me he had 'a very bad  cold. " asked the doctor.  The woman hesitated for a moment;  then, looking at her husband, sho said,  with sullen .rankness, "Neither him  nor me knew how to spell measles."  A Chinese Jnlte.  In his book on "China and tbe Chinese" Dr. Giles gives a specimen of  ^Chinese humor which, if the source  were not known, might well be mistaken for American humor.  There is a Chinese story which tells  how a very stingy mau took a paltry  sum of money to an artist—payment is  hlwa'ys exacted In advance—and asked  him to paint his portrait. The artist at  once complied with the request, but  when the portrait was-flnished nothing  was visible save the back of the sitter's head.  "What does this mean?"cried the sitter indignantly. •  "Well," replied the artist, "1 thought  a man who paid so little as you paid  wouldn't care to show hlsface."  ■:    i ,«i.
