I  $1.00 a year  Three Japs on a Capsized Boat Saved In the  Nick of Time on Wednesday Morning.  Capt. James Rogers of the steamer Victorian has added to his record  for saving life at sea. On Wednesday last there being a heavy swell  in the gulf the gallant mariner with  his binoculars sighted the mast of  a swamped boat in the south  channel with human beings clinging thereto. fie immediately  phased the'coufse of the vessel,  lowered a boat and rescued three  Japanese fishermen in the last  stages of exhaustion, they having  been in their periles* position up to  their waists in wgter dinging to  the mast, about one and a belf  hours. The Victorian brought the  men to Port Guichon and after their  grants had been attended to Capt.  Rogers conveyed them to their  destination. The steamer was of  course delayed in its time, "but a  noble deed of succor was accomplished. The Steamer Unicorn, of  the Gulf of Georgia cannery, bound  For Steveston for coal, subsequently  towed the boat into port. Curiously  Capt. Roger's father rescued some  Japanese fishermen a few years ago  in the almost identical spot. About  three months past Capt. Rogers,  when commanding the ferry steamer Surrey, rescued two' boys who  were on a capsized boat, and in  '95, when captain of the City of  Nanaimo, he saved two Chilian  fishersaen in the Narrows.  made their way under cover of the  children to the woods. Lieut.  T. L- Cutter brought the chinamen back to Seattle. 4 They  will be deported to China. The  smugglers, it is said, hare been  doing all in their power to get  cargoes for their sloops, which  have been lying idle at Vancouver,  Victoria, Steveston, Ladner and  other points across the border.  Not one of the nine chinamen  had a certificate. They were not  possessed with even one of the customary forgeries. One of the  number declared he had Deen born  in Portland, but at his hearing he  was unable to support his contention.  The public schools close for the  midsummer holidays on Friday,  26th inst.  ORANGE GATHERING  The committees in charge of the  preparations for tbe great Orange  demonstration at New Westmin  ster on July 13, report everything  prof ressing satisfactorily, and from  the assurances received from outside points it is very evident there  will be a record attendance. Definite acceptances have already been  received from Victoria, Delta, Surrey, and other towns where lodges  are established. Sports will be  held at Queen's Park in the after-  ■oon, and a parade takes place in  the evening. Ladner will be represented by the members of the  Jpcal Orange and True Blue lodges,  and the band. A special steamer  will probably be chartered.  CHINKS   CAPTURED  Nine chinamen in a sloop en route  from Ladner to Seattle, were captured at 7 o'clock last Monday jflorn'  ing by George Lenserink, gunner  pn the revenue cutter- Grant, and  two sailors, while cruising about in  Deception pass in one ofthe Grant's  small boats. Two men in charge  of the party ran tbe slopp on shore  close to a picnic party of children,  and, jumping into the midst of the  THE ERASER RIVER  HIGH WATER  Freshet Now On.      Exaggerated  Reports Being Circulated.  While low-lands in the Fraser valley are likely to suffer to some extent fron   high   water during the  next few days there  is no justification for sensational reports printed  to the effect that   great damage is  probable or that the situation is cri -  tical.     The reverse   is   true.    By  the system of dyking which   is one  of the features ofthe valley,   farm  ers can view wjth comparative tranquility reports of the river   rifting.  The ' Fraser   is   the great water  course of this   province.     It is 750  miles long and washes an enormous  and rich region.     From Steveston  at its mouth to Hope, the outpost  of Cariboo, is one ofthe most fertile  sections of British  Columbia.    In  this section are included the municipalities of Delta, Surrey, Langley,  Matsqui,   Sumas  and   Chilliwack.  Delta district is protected from  the  the river by a system of dykes that  cost   the    municipality   $100,000.  Surrey is also  protected.   There is  only one report so far of the river  going over a   dyke.    At  extreme  high tide on Wednesday night the  water overtopped the dyke at Morris Landing, a few miles from Chilliwack.   It quickiy receded and no  damage was done.   On the  same  afternoon the Brunette saw   mills  were compelled to shut down.    At  the Royal   City mills   the   factory  hands are removing the boxes  to a  higher place to avoid   damage by  water.   At   the   bridge   work on  the  water has   stopped   and   the  boats are being used   to  tow  the  drift wood from before the piers to  prevent damage by   a jam.     At  Mission the low land is under water and it has  only  to  rise  four  feet   more   before   it  will   be   as  high as in 1894.   From the mountains comes the news that there is  considerable snow in the hills. The  river is nineteen feet, eight inches  at Mission.   It rose seven   inches  in 24 hours.   Another four inches  will do some  damage, specially  at  Dewdney.    It is still about  two  feet from 1896 watermark.   A telegram from Ashcroft  says:     The  river fell two feet  at   Soda   creek  and ten inches at Quesnel.   It is at  a   standstill    at    Lillooet.      The  weather continues warm.  A Barkerville despatch says: Bare spots on  the mountains seem to indicate that extreme  high water ia over.  Guichon  1  111|§ pi  Application for Booth on  the Race Course Refused.—Treating Clause  Goes Into Effect.  On Wednesday afternoon the  board of licensing commissioners  held a meeting, the members present being the Reeve, J. B. Burr  and W. Arthur, Js. P.  In reply to the chairman the  clerk stated there were no complaints against existing licenses.  The following half yearly renewals were granted:  W. L. McBride,  Port  Hotel.  Marshall Smith, Delta Hotel,  Ladner.  Marshall Smith applied for   permission to extend his license to t!  agricultural society's   grounds  Friday, u&th June.  J. B. Burr moved tbat it be not  granted.  W. Arthur moved thatj itjjbe  granted-on-paymentof the full li-  cense. oP$ib.    *  The Reeve said that this was the  first application of the kind they  had received. No liquor was sold  at the New Westminster exhibition  and he thought if it were put to a  vote of the ratepayers the majority  would be against it, and as they  were supposed to represent the  ratepayers he upheld the rejection  of the application, which was refused accordingly.  With reference to the renewals  the forthcoming amendment to  clause 6 will be attached to the licenses: "Nor shall such license  holders, or their employees, allow  one person to pay for liquors or  cigars for another person." It is  understood that the amended bylaw has not been laid before the  Attorney-General, and that it stands  until tested in the courts.  temporary arrangement the portfolio of provincial secretary.  At the last Libera! meeting the  following were appointed a campaign committee for the Lower  Mainland: J. Martin, J C Brown,  J. Oliver, W. J. McMillan.  It has been resolved to hold a  mass meeting of the Consevatives in  Victoria Thursday next, 18th inst.,  for the purpose of organization aud  the election of officers.  EXCURSION  The Colonist reports that at the  meeting of Banner Lodge No. 6, A.  0. U. W., Victoria, the officers and  members decided to hold an excursion over the new route to New  Westminster. A train will leave  that city at 7 o'clock a. m. 00 the  28th inst., connecting at S3'dney  with the steamer Victorian, and  arriving at the Royal City at 1  o'clock p. m. The excursionists  will have the choice of continuing  the trip from Port Guichon by rail  or by steamer. Returning the visitors will leave New Westminster at  5 o'clock p. m. An opportunity  will be given to view the scenery  through the Straits and up the  Fraser river.  \  At the last meeting the Board of  Trade in New Westminister, it was  reported that the plans for the Ladner road were now being prepared  Ou Thursday next, 18th inst.,  the Grand Lodge of British Columbia A.

The army  revolted and proclaimed Kara-  georgevitch, a prince of Montenegro, King. The people received  the news quietly.. The revolt is  attributed to the Qaeen's brother  having been made heir apparent  and to the recent suspension of the  Constitution.  POLITICAL EVENTS  At the first meeting of the completed cabinet on Tuesday it was  decided that the date of dissolution  shall be a week from Wednesday so  that the present legislature will pass  out of existence on the 16th inst.  On Tuesday evening Charles  Wilson of Vancouver was sworn in  as president of the council, and  Hon. Robert F. Green took over as  Mr. and Mrs. W. H. Smith spent  Thursday in the Royal City.

Isolated From the Mainland Which Causes Untold Inconvenience to  the Public.  The residents of Westham Island  and vicinity are   agitating   for  a  draw bridge across Canoe Pass.   It  is a crying need from a public point  of view and the matter should   be  promptly attended to by the powers  that be.   For   fifteen  years   they  have been depending on the   good  will of Paul Swenson to ferry them  across, and as there is no subsidized  ferry, naturally his  patience  has  come to an end.   The expenditure  would not be a serious item in view  of the situation and distance to be  bridged.   Many up country bridges  and ferries with much   less  traffic  have been voted for in   the   Public  Works estimates—such as the  notorious   Chimney  Creek—without  demur.   Cannery employees, fishermen, ranchers and farmers   and  their   families   require   daily communication with the mainland, and  vehicle roadway can best be effected  by a draw bridge.    Dewdney and  Chilliwack ridings were included in  last year's supplementary estimates.  It is now the turn of the Delta riding.   A preliminary survey is required at once so that there will be  no delay when the next   estimates  are   prepared.     The   attention of  our member, John Oliver, has only  to be drawn and his influence will  be assured.   The members   of the  present   Government   have    local  knowledge   of  the long felt want  and should   also   be   officially ap  proached.    At present   the   crops  can only be deported by water carriage and   the  market  gardeners  and  residents  shopping   in   New  Westminster are compelled to waste  time   proceeding    by    the    river  steamers.   When the bridge is an  accomplished fact they will  share  in the advantages of the direct railway   communication    from    Port  Guichon and the town of  Ladner  will also benefit by the junction  of  the island with the Delta proper.  that the city sh->Vld accept the  Victorian as a suitable and adequate  ferry steamer, such as was called  for by the contract, and in which  he recommends that the services of  an expert be secured to pass upon  the point in questiou.  The residents of Point Roberts  will mark their Fourth of July celebration, Independence Day, with a  programme of sports. They have  secured tbe Ladner baud for the  occasion.  W. A. Kirkland, the Ladner  delegate to tbe Grand Lodge of  Oddfellows, assembled at New  Westminster, left on Wednesday- to  represent the local lodge. Brother  Alex. Davie also attended tbe  gathering. The programme includes an excursion to Whatcom.  The Langley Municipal Council  at their last meeting fell in line  with Surrey and Richmond in endorsing the Delta Council's protest  against the Government assuming  all liabilities incurred in tbe construction and maintenance of the  Matsqui, Chilliwack, and Coquitlam  and Pitt Meadows dyking schemes.  The case of Hollingshead vs. the  Sheriff of Westminster was decided  against Hollingshead.  HITCH  IN FERRY SERVICE  A serious hitch occured in the  matter of the city formally accepting tbe service as inaugurated by  the Victoria Terminal Railway &  Ferry Company, as fulfilling the  terms of the contract between tbe  corporation and the company. The  council had before it at its last meeting a report from the city engineer,  which is adverse te the suggestion  RETURNED FROM  SOUTH AFRICA,  Was with Percy Devereaux When  He was Shot.  The Nanaimo Weekly Herald reports the return of H. B. Conrad,  son of Mrs. H. Hewitt of that  town, from South Africa.  He left British Columbia in May,  1901, having enlisted in Victoria in  the second last corps that left this  coast, and with the other recruits  including Crowe, McLeod, and  Devereaux from here, was attached  toithe constabulary as troop 16.  On arriving in South Africa they  joined French's scouts, and under  tbe direction of a Canadian officer,  Col. Ross, passed through many of  the fierciest fights that marked the  closing of the campaign. He was  along with poor Devereaux at Diel  Kraal, wheie that unfortunate  young man lost his life. Conrad  was on the opposite side of the hill  at the time, and after tbe battle was  one of those detailed to go to Kru-  gersdorp for the ambulance. Devereaux was wounded at three  o'clock in the afternoon and lived  till after midnight. It was next  day peace was proclaimed. It was  three o'clock next day when the  ambulance corps arrived, having  had to ride over twenty miles and  back. They buried Devereaux in  the Krugersdorp cemetery with  military honors, his grave being  marked with a wooden cross, on  which is printed bis name, age and  where he came from.  Conrad speaks in the highest  terms of the gallantry and good  character of the young man, and  says he was most highly thought of  by all his comrades.  Conrad himself was in numerous  engagements, including Diel Kraal,  Blue Bank, Deep Kloof, Rooivaal,  and in many others, having operated around Klerksdorp under Col.  Kakevich for some months. He  was wounded both ut Rooivaal and  Deep Kloof and before leaving  South Africa had to undergo an  operation as a result of his last  wound in the stomach.  The Boers proved themselves  very treacherous, using the white  flag as a decoy on several occasions.  In fact, Conrad's wound at Deep  Kloof was a direct result of this  method of warfare. The Boers  raised a white flag and he, with  others, advanced, being greeted  with a volley that laid several of  them out.  Poor Devereaux, he says, was  shot with a dum-dum bullet, which  is prohibited by all the rules of  modern warfare. Had it not been  for that he might have recovered,  but the explosive cap tore such a  hole in him that recovery was int*  possible.

RIC. A. ERASER,  Editor and Proprietor.  SATURDAY,  JUNK   13,   1002.  as .. J::  FRUIT   GROWING,.  The Department of  Agriculture  has issued an interesting paniphlet  fcr the information of  fruit  growers,, in view of the steadily inci easing demand for information on the  subject ofthe setting out and management of orchards.    Western and  Southern exposures are  not recommended for orchards, as they promote early growth and late   frosts  act  injuriously on   the  trees.    A  north-eastern site is considered the  best for British   Columbia.   Trees  should be mulched when tha ground  is frozen, with straw, fern, chips or  sawdust, but pine or   fir   sawdust  and chips should no£ be du<j in on  account of the   acid   matter tbey  contain.    On the lower   mainland  and   islands   generally fir-covered  slopes  are   suggested   for   apples,  cherries and peeches.   Light peaty  soil   should   be   avoided.     Apple  trees should not be  planted closer  than   thirty feet  apart   each way,  and other fruits   twenty-five   feet.  A chart of the orchard   should   be  kept with the names of the trees so  that the varieties can be   identified  if  the tags   are lost.    The   early  autumn and winter is the best time  for planting here, and transplanting  in   the   autumn    when    possible.  "Avoid   deep    planting."       Two  years old from the graft being   the  best age, except peaches and apricots which are better transplanted  at one year from the graft or   bud,  rejecting all weaklings. The standard form is recommended as  being  the most natural, and less liable to  split apart.    When trees   are   too  much pruned they are apt to throw  out numerous suckers which should  be rubbed off when  they first   appear.   Cutting increases their number.   Young trees should not have  their branches cut  away until the  trunk can support   tha   head   and  Withstand   the   weather.     Winter  pruning    for   wood   growth  and  summer   pruning for fruit growth.  A dying tree will have mpre   fruit  bads  than   a healthy one.   Root  pruning    is   better    adapted   for  small gardens. The following varieties were adopted by the Board   of  Horticulture in 1900 as suitable for  commercial purposes on the lower  mainland:     Apples,  late summer,  Yellow   Transparent;     early   fall,  Duchess of Oldenburg;   fall, Blenheim Orange,  Wealthy,   Ripstone  Pippin;    winter,   Lemon   Pippin,  Salome,  Maiden's Blush,   Canada  Reinette.       Crabs,    Hyslop   and  Martha.       Pears,    fall,    Bartlett,  Beurrl Boussock, Dr. Jules Gayot;  late fall, leurre Clairgeau, Beurre  Hardy.      Plums,   early,  Clyman;  late, Grand Duke and   Monarch.  Prunes, German, Italian and Giant.  Peaches, early, Alexander,  Hale's  Early;   late fall,   Early Crawford,  Early  Charlotte.     Cherries, early,  May Duke, Black Tartarian; later,  Royal Ann, Windsor; latest, English Morello, O'.ivet, Belle Mag-  liificjuc, Late Duke. Tec board  warn fruit growers not to experiment with v.aknown varieties re-  I commended by pedlars, who are  pftgquenfe ignorant of their wares.  'Orcharcii-.'.s will generally find it  for their interest to purchase nursery stock from within the limits of  the district. Irrigation should be  sparingly applied. It is unreasonable to expect fruit trees to bear  good fruit if other crops are permitted in the same orchard. Clover  is useful as a fertilizer if it is  ploughed in after, the first season.  Sod should never be allowed, specially about young trees. The bulletin concludes with some seasonable advice in regard to grafting.  Copies of the pamphlet are to. be  distributed amongst the members of  Farmers' Institutes and we recommend its perusal to our readers.  again in the (.veiling by sparks  emited from the Transfer's smokestack.

The Albion cannery  on Westham island also caught  alight the other day from the same  cause.  READING   ROOM.  The deputy minister for agriculture in Manitoba does not anticipate that any harvest excursions  from the east will be required this  season, owing to the large influx  of laboring hands, who havj been  hired for the year by tbe larmers of  the Northwest Territory. By  this means the large earnings, vviil  be mainly spent locally and the  monthly imports of lumber, coal,  froit and fish from British Columbia will be maintained throughout  the year.  mm m Bin  PARLOR  Tobacco, Pine", ar.d Cigarr.

All the writers are evidently interested in its  welfare and should be able to reconcile their differences as. to its management. Both the. annonymous  correspondents were unhappy in  their, noms de plume. According  to old country tales t^here is often a  connection between sugarbags and  sandbags, not redounding to the  credit ot tbe holders, but this does  not affect their arguments. We  havei it in history that an ass once  spoke words of wisdom to its owner. Naturally subscribers to any  public funds, likeio know how their  particular hobby is progressing  from time to time, and it should be  an qasy matter to hold regular  monthly meetings when progress  can be reported. These gatherings  bring the affairs of the Institute  before the public and keep them in  mind of their objections. Every  credit is due to the few staunch adherents and they would without  doubt welcome additional advice  and assistance in their coupcils.  President Cutting, who took office  reluctantly, was specially selected  because of his keen interest in the  welfare of the reading room.  Now thattne a'r uas De'n cleared  it is to be hoped all will work harmoniously for an institution which  deserves support, in one way or  another, from every resident in  Ladner.  "Fire," writes Gibbon in his history, '4s the most powerful agent  of life and death; the rapid mischief  may be kindled and propagated by  the industry or negligence of mankind; and every period of the Ro  man annals is marked by the repe  tition of similar calamities."

PREMIER MCRRIDE  JReceives  a    Reception  Native  Town.  JM    His  New Westminster turned out in  /orce on Saturday night to welcome  .home premier Rhhard McBride.  Although the public reception war  of as informal character, it was  none the less hearty and enthusiastic, all class«s of citizens, of all  political stripes, uniting in doing  honor to the first '-'native son" tt  achieve the highest political honor  in the pacific province.  The premier, who was greeted  with acclamation, in his address to  vthe meeting expressed gratification  .at the splendid reception accorded  his colleague and himself. They  all knew how closely he was iden  tified with New Westminster. He  Was born there and lived there  practically all his life, and it was  natural that he -should particularly  desire .the confidence of his fellow  citizens. He felt he was acceding  to the almost unanimous wish of  the people of the province in declaring for "party lines," and paid  a high tribute to those who had  stood by him in many a crisis in  the legislature. An important part  of their policy will be road and  trajl construction, following out on  a comprehensive scale in tha province what he had aimed at securing  loyally—the bringing ,-of his ,own  constituency of Dewdney and of  qther sections of this ..district, jrop-  .qrly tributary to New?Westminster  into close*,touck with i.their market  town. Tbe Ladder road will give  farmers in<that direction easy access  to New Westminster, and -tbe  JDewdney trunk road, which is to  be completed in the near future,  will connect the city with the .rich  jtarming area north of the Fraser.  DELTA V. DR. WILSOH.  ,Mr. Justice Martin's decision in  the abav-e case is as follows:  The municipality of Delta was  suing Dr. Wilson for something  over jj! 1,000 for arrears of dyking  axes; due under the special bylaw  elating to the Delta dyke. The  efence attacked the validity of  his bylaw. He ruled in favor  T the prosecution and main-  ained the byla^ to be valid. The  :ounter-claim for damages was also  lismissed, it being held that defendant could not underthe-circum-  stances sue for damages, but had  the alternative of arbitration, which  is still open as far as one year's  taxes are concerned. A third  point was successfully urged. It  was contended that even though  the bylaw were valid and the taxes  thereunder good, the municipality  had lost;its right to collect same,  becaus* the collector had failed to  swear to the truth of his return.  As provided by sections 144 and  145 ofthe Municipal Act the roll  must be returned to the clerk by  January >3, each year, with _ certificate as to the arrears of taxes.  A lengthy argument ensued, and  many cases were cited by counsel.  The upshot was that his lordship  ruled in favor of the defendant.  LOCAL ITEMS.  A. DeR.

New Westminster  BLOCK RIVER CHANNEL.  J. J. Martin, secretary of the Pa  . cific coast division of the merchant  service guild of Canada, is.sendirg  out circulars directing attention to  extracts from the Fisheries Act.  He says that "ou account .of the  ignorance of fishermen, nets,are set  so as to-completely block the,channels of navigation, the fishermen  to understand .that because they  hold a license to fish they can place  their nets anywhere they cfroose.  This ignorance of the law has led to  loss of life and damage to property  aud is a sonrce of danger not alone  to the fishermen, but to passengers  on steamboats, since the winding  up ofthe nets upon a propeller will  disable a ship and leave her .completely at the .mercy of the wind  and tide."  'FISHERMEN'S STRIKE.  Tbe B. C. fishermen's union, at  its meeting in New Westminster,  on Saturday .evening, decided to  declare a strike, to go into efiect on  July ist, coincident with the opening of the -sockeye salmon fiishng  season. At a gathering of Indians  at Mission City on May 30th the  Fraser-iriver Indians agreed -that it  would-not pay fhem to leave home  and come to the fisheries for less  than »iq cents per fish, and they  signed.an agreement not to come  until a settlement has been arrived  at between the white fishermen  and the can ner*.  Too Oreat a Risk.  In almost every neighborhood  someone has died from an attack of  colic or cholera morbus, often [before medicine could be procured or  a physician summoned. A reliable  remedy for these diseases should be  kept at hand. The risk is too great  for anyone to take. Chamberlain's  Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Rem?  edy has undoubtedly saved the  lives of tjjore people, and relieved  more pair) >and suffering than any  other medicine in use. It can always be depended upon. For sale  by F. J., MacKeuzit.

The .council of the Victorian  Board of Trade has taken prompt  action in the matter of urging on  the post office authorities the necessity of arranging on a daily mail  service to the lower Fraser districts  by the way of Victoria Terminal  Railway system, having passed the  following resolution: '"The Victoria  Board of Trade herehy requests the  post office department to provide for  the conveyance of mail by the Victoria Terminal Railway & Ferry to  and from points on the lower Fraser  valley, which can-be reached more  readily thereby than by the present  route via Vancouver."  'The annual picnic of the A. P.  A. canneries was held at Point  Roberts on Memorial Day. Over  eighty guests from Blaine were  present, having been brought over  in the manager's private launch.  Sports were held during the day  and a pleasant time was spent by  the party.  The C. P. R. has agreed to the  plan to erect a fine tourist hotel in  Victoria.
