 ■•-'f---''  w  Vol. 1. No. 3.  LADNER, B. C, SATURDAY, HARCH 8, 1902.  $1.00 a year.  THE DELTA CREAMERY CO. LTD.  Owned Principally by Local Men Who With Careful Managment Has  Made it a  Paying  Proposition as Well a Great Boon  to the District.  The annual meeting of the Delta  Creamery Company, Limited, was  ■held in ithe Town Hall, Ladner, on  February 12, J902. The President  H. N. Rich reported as follows :  Since our last meeting the direc  tors   had   to   contend   with heavy  losses from (bad debts which have  been written oft.  Ample provision has been made  for all expenses of the year and depreciation in plant an spite of this  and after paying a dividend of 10  per .cent on capital stock, your directors are enabled to increase the  reserve fund by $250. I cannot too  strongly impress on you the necessity of keeping a strong reserve the  successful operation of this cream-  «ry facing of vital interest to the  settlement  The company was supposed by  yourselves aad directors to be fin-  aaeaally strong and we have proved  mt -ar« able to stand a big loss and  yet meet all our liabilities and pay a  .dividend. The loyal support of the  patrons and shareholders is I can  .assure you fully appreciated by  your board.  We received during the year 1901,  11987,855 pounds milk, producing  79,491 pounds butter fat. The 84,-  127 pounds sold produced $23,398.69  equal to $27.80 per 100 pounds  gross.  Butter has ruled somewhat lower  during the winter months of 1901  than the previous year, caused by  the influx of Northwest, Eastern and  Australia butter and the some what  more stringent times.  In comparison the other years I  give the following:  flutter apid 1897 „ ,.48,499  " JS98 , 61,542  " 1899 , 70,138  1900..  190J-  ..75,820  ..84,127  Average gross per 100 pounds:  l897v ., -■.■•.■ $2-1 37  1898..,'., .'..'.'...' ,  35 37  1899...... ., „ ,  26 78  1900  28 00  1901...,,, ,  17 80  Assets of company:  • • »898.-.. .... , $   7* a°  J899...., '. ,  2,003 55  1900...,,. ..., , 2,218 10  1901 ,., ..„  2,473 67  In 1897 there was fl liability against the company of $31,3,  All of which gives a pleasing example of continued prosperity.  your directors have kept the.  .plant and buildings in good state of  repair.  F. W. Harris has audited the  -books and his certificate of their  correctness is before you and notwithstanding the heavy losses we  have again increased our surplus  assets by $255.50.

IkU   i. I ;   ' . . ...  it being atsolwtely necessary for  the good of he farming community  that more hay be consumed at home  And less put on the market.  I had almost forgotten our friend  the pig, transactions in which show  a pleasing profit of $338.  As to the future there is every  prospect of a further increased output next year.  The Delta Creamery Company,  Ltd., was incorporated in 1895 under the Dairymen's Association Act,  and is probably the only creamery  organized under this act.  For some time the people of the  Delta had believed that a creamery  would be of great advantage to the  district but they felt rather dubious  about taking definite action in the  matter until T. A. Sharpe, of the  Dominion Experimental farm at  Agassiz paid a special visit to Lad  ner to talk the matter over with the  settlers. After several days stay  here he induced the farmers and  others, with some little misgivings  on their part as to the success of  the venture, to start a creamery.  The chief movers and first directors were H. D. Benson, late John  McKee, Wm, McKee, E, Hutcher-  son and Wm. Arthur.  At first considerable difficulty was  experienced in the financial management, but of late years the enterprise has proved a financial success,  having, as will be seen by the last  financial statement presented by  the president, paid a dividend and  added to the reserve found the sum  of $250 which has yearly increased  since 1898 until the excess of assets  is now in the neighborhood of $2,-  500.  When the company started in  1895 plans were received from the  government for a 500 cow creamery  but since that date considerable  money has been expended in putting in new machinery and repairs.  Each year a certain amount of  money is expended on renewals and  repairs to machinery and plant to  facilitate the running of the factory  to the satisfaction pf  the   patrons.  The estimated value of the buildings, real estate, machinery and  plant are now $2,841, which appears to be a very conservative one,  as each year a certain amount is  written off for depreciation in plant.  Since the company began doing  business they have had to contend  with many difficulties, but it has  been shown that under the present  careful management each year these  difficulties become less, and also'  notwithstanding losses the directors  have heen able to add to the reserve  fund and pay a handsome dividend  to the shareholder.  On looking over the annual statement it will be found that the cost  of making a pound of butter has  each year decreased since 1898.  It is gratifying to note the decrease each year in cost of manufacture. This is a question which is  frequently in llie minds of those interested in dairying. However it is  generally conceded by the experience of the best authorities that the  greater the volume of patronage ex  tended to a creamery the cost becomes less. We quote the following from a very excellent authority  in the matter:  "A creamery receiving 2,000  pounds of milk a day might possibly  make butter for six cents a pound  as the amount of milk increases, the  cost of manufacturing a pound of  butter decreases, but not in the same  ratio. There are' certain fixed  charges that remain the same,  whether much or little is made, such  as cost of salt, wrapping paper,  boxes, shipping expenses and commission 011 sales. The charges  which decrease as the amount increases are interest on plant, the  item of wages, fuel, repairs of machinery, and other items that are practically as great for 2,000 pounds of  milk as for 4,000 pounds. A creamery receiving 5,000 pounds of milk  per day might make butter for four  or five cents a pound, possibly less,  but not much, when the amount received in a day runs up to 10,000  pounds the charges can be reduced  posssbly to 3'Jjj cents, while with  20,000 to 30,000 pounds they might  be reduced to 3 cents. We think it  due the creameries to state that very  few of them are charging more for  making up the product than they  must charge to make a fair income  on their investment.'"'  It will be seen by the above that  our local creamery comes well within the bounds of cost to the patrons.  No doubt the more patronage given  the less the cost of manufacture.  The company in the past have found  but little difficulty in marketing  their product. The chief markets  are Victoria and Nanaimo. In Vic-  toaia the Delta butter is in great  demand, the people referring it to  any other make. The company has  also a very large local trade. This  should be very flattering to the patrons as there are several creameries  within a short distance of Victoria  and competition must be experienced for the reason that large quantities of butter are also shipped from  the Northwest and Manitoba creameries besides that from the provincial creameries. Possibly one great  advantage the local factory has is  that it is a milk creamery instead  of a cream creamery. Another  advantage is the excellent clover  grass and hay of the Delta gives  better returns than any other part  of the province, or the Northwest  and Manitoba, where the feeding is  not so uniform. In the latter places  the hard winters and the fact that  for part of the summer season the  grass gives a strong wild flavor to  the milk, consequently affecting the  butter.  The winter dairying is increasing-  each year. About one-half as much  butter is made at the Delta Creamery in the winter as in summer. At  present there about thirty-seven patrons sending the milk from some  100 cows. None of .these patrons  live at any great distance from the  factory. The average ratio of butter fat per hundred pounds of milk  is not as great in winter as in summer, but this does not effect the  quality of the butter. During the  winter months cream is separated  on an average of four days per  week. At present about 350 pounds  of butter is made from each separation.  A great many pigs are fed from  the milk and buttermilk at the factory with considerable profit to -t'.ie  shareholders.     At   present   about  twenty  of these animals are being  prepared for the market.  On a visit to the factory a few  days ago one particular matter came  to our attention, and that was the  neat, clean appearance of the factory and its surroundings. The  management believe in employing  only experienced butter makers.  The creamery is managed by H. H.  Clarke who has had a number of  years experience at the business.  Besides having practical experience  he has made a study of the subject  of butter making in one of the best  dairy schools in Canada. He came  here highly recommended by the  superintendent of the Manitoba  creameries. Mr. Clarke has an  able assistant iu Mr. Calvert who  has also had practical experience  in the creameries of Alberta.  The News should judge that  the directors of the company have  in this matter as well as in other  ways shown wisdom iu employing  men from such representative butter making districts as the combined experience obtained in the past  should go a long way in helping to  manufacture a very superior article.  It is to be hoped that the Delta  butter trade will still continue to  improve and give the same satisfaction to its customers in the future  that it has in the past, also that the  coming year will be the banner thus  far in the history of the company.   1  THE  MARKETS.  New Westminster, March 8.—  The weekly market held yesterday was an average one, the supply  and demand being faixly good.  Eggs were not as steady as usual  and befere the close of the market  the quotations for retail fell several  cents per doz.  Meats however were scarce in all  lines. All that was brought in found  a ready sale at the prices quoted.  Poultry too was in good demand,  the suppy being below the average.  What was offered found a quick sale.  There was no change in potatoes  or vegetables, the prices remaining  firm and closing the same as they  opened.  The following is the list of quot-  tations as furnished by the market  clerk:  Beef: hindquarters, q)4 to 10 c.  per lb; forequarters, '% to 8 c,;cuts  7 to 14 c.; Mutton, whole 9 to 10c.  cuts, none. Pork, whole, 8 c. cuts  none. Veal, small, 10 c; large 7 to  9 c.  Vegetables: potatoes, ton $12, sack  75 c; turnips, s ck, 50 c.; carrots,  sack, 50 c; ton, $58.; beets, sack, 75;  onions, sack, $1.25.  Hay, ton, $10. No wheat or oats  offered.  Eggs, per. doz. 20 c. to 25 c.;  butter, per. lb. 25 c. to 30 c.  Fowls per. doz. $6.50 to $7.;  chickens, $5.50 to $6.  Fruit; apples, per. box $1.10 to  $i#o. I   Price of Pish.  The Grand Lodge of the Fishermen's Union held a meeting at New  Westminster last Saturday and  idopted a schedule of prices to be  paid by fish dealers to those engaged in the spring salmon fishing  011 the Fraser River.  For red spring salmon the Union  demands 7c. per lb: for white  springs, 4c; and for steelheads,  4c; these prices to rule from March  1 st to April 5II1.  It is understood these prices  have been agreed to by the local  dealers,  1 LEGISLATURE IBIi II  /Members Indulging in Campaign  Speeches.—Terim  of  The  Railway Contract.  After the adjournment of the  House last week, practically nothing has appeared on the surface. Undoubtedly, negotiations have been  going on with the view of strengthening the Government, but as to the  nature of these negotiatiins, nothing  authorative has transpired.  In the House, Monday, the de-  bate on the reply to the address was  commenced. Mr. McBride as leader  of the Opposition condemned the  Government. Mr. Tatlow went for  the Government in his usual style,  referring largely to what took place  at the meeting of members elect,  who were opposed to Mr. Martin  when they met in Vancouver after  the general election of 1900. Mr.  Tatlow referred to Mr. Dunsmuir's  conduct as treacherous and disgraceful, and and such as no gentleman  would be guilty of, evidently forget'  ting that, in agreeing to support Mr,  Dunsmuir, and as he himself stated,  that he was one of the members who  demanded and forced Mr. Dunsmuir  to sign the now famous letter to  Premier Laurier, demanding that  Lieut.-Gov. Mclnnes should bed is-  missed from his office.  A meeting in support of Col. Prior  and in defence of the Government  w.as held iu the Victoria Theatre  Monday night.. The feature of the  evening was Mr. Dunsmuir's explanation.. This explanation so enraged Mr. Tatlow that be left the  gallery and proceeded to the pl»t-  otm with the evident intention of  contradicting jMr. Dunsmuir's statements. Mr. Tatlow »as uol allowed  to speak, and left the platform,, after,  endeavoring to make himself heard.  Attorney General Eberts, defended  the Government, and exposed (the  tactics resorted to Mr. Bodwell in respect to the British-Pacific, the  Coast-Kootenay, and the Canadian.-  Northgrn Railway questions.  Whilst the different factions are  squabbling and fighting for party  advantage, the interests of the  country are suffering, and it appearand it appears almost hopeless to expect the members of the 'Legislature  to get down to busiuess and study  the interests of the people.  In brief the terms between the  province of British Columbia and  Mackenzie & Mann for the Canada  Northern railway are as follows:  For a bonus of $54,800 per mile,  for the first 50 mites cpnstructed?-  for the next 150 rm^s, #4,000 per  mile, and for the balance to the,  Yellowhead Pass-~-about 200 miles  —$4,500 per mile. Twenty thousand acres of land per mile, along  the railway, are to be granted ia  section, as the railway is completed,  If there is not enough land along  the railway to satisfy the agreement  the company may go outside and  take contiguous lands in blocks of  one mile square. The land is exempt  from provincial or municipal taxation while in the possession of the  company, and the capital stock and  revenues of the company are exempt  from provincial taxation for ten  years. The money bonus amounts,  to $51,800,000, and the laud bonus to  eight million acres.  Provision is made for ferry con*  nection for passengers freight, between the terminus on the mainland  —unnamed—and the island, to connect with the Comox & Cape Scot(  Railway, the company to pay the  Government two per cent of the  gross earnings anually, until the pro?  vince receives a sum eqnal to the  money-basis paid.  If a} any time prior to November  1, 1902, the company shall, in writ?  iug, notify the government that,  after a preliminary survey, the engineers report the road impracticable  and the company does not wish to  be bound by the agreement, notir  fication shall amount to cancellation  of the agreement, and all covenants  therein contained. The road- is to be  commenced by June 1, 1903, and to  be built within five years of £hg  passing of the a<ft. THE DELTA NEWS, SATURDAY, MARCH 8, r9o2.  THE    DELTA   NEWS  BY MC. A. FRASER.  Subscription Price, per year Iu advance, fi.oo  SATURDAY, MARCH 8,  I902.  The residents of the lower Fraser  and especially Ladner are anxiously  awaiting the arrival of the dredge,  King Edward VII to remove the  ' obstructions in the Fraser river. At  Ladner the sand bars are rapidly  growing, greatly impeding traffic  ond causing much annoyance. Shipments of freight to and from Ladner  will compare favorably with any  place along the river and the work  necessary at the landing should be  attended to at once so as not to delay shipping which it will most certainly do shortly. At present the  large steamers are unable to land as  heretofore, and if the Dominion gov-  |trnment wish to do the right thing  with the lower Fraser settlers it will  order the dredge along at once.  Each year the obstructions are increasing and if the work was done  noW it would considerably lessen  the time and cost later on, besides  allowing the people of this section  their just rights.  The political situation at Victoria  is about the same as last week, it  •being almost impossibleto get much  worse. No business is being transacted, all apparently waiting the  result of the Bodwell-Prior election  which takes place on Monday. As  whether the Canada Northern railway scheme is an election dodge or  not remains to be seen, but coming  as it does at this time it looks rather  jfishy. Both men are strong candidates and their friends and supporters are leaving nothing unturned to  secure the election. The result will  be anxiously watched, which if  Bodwell is elected will seal the fate  of the government (if it can be cal  led such.)  In this issue we have an article  on the Delta Creamery Company,  Ltd., which shows a very satisfactory state of affairs. The success of  this creamery should give the incentive in other parts of the province to advance such industries.  The Delta Creamery Company, owing to its good management and financial strength are capable of handling" everything brought to them,  and to enlarge their plant at any  time to cope with the increased  business.  What about the V. V. & E. railway in the Victoria campaign?  The Farmer and Poultry.  The farmer performs many duties  during the year, and with much extra labor for which he receives but  little renumeration, but it is safe to  iaffim that no farmer ever devoted a  portion of his time to poultry without receiving more than an equivalent therefor. There is harvest time  for wheat, corn, hay, and other  crops, when the receipts then come  in, but the fowls give a return every  inonth in the year. Many farmers  have during the past, when prices  6f farm products were low and but  & bare profit was made, found the  Veil filled egg basket a source for  $ash when the snow covered the  ground and no receipts were possible unless from the cows. Yet the  fowls are relegated to a secondary  position on the fatm, although they  ire capable of giving a larger profit  proportion   to   capital invested  than larger stock. There is a large  amount of food that can be utilized  for poultry that would be wasted  without their aid, and the farmer  will find that any attention bestowed on his fowls during the period of  the year, when oiher work is not  pressing, will be returned by them  fourfold.  It has Ion;; been the custom to regard the hen as the natural enemy  of the gardener when his seeds are  in the ground and the young plants  are about to appear, but while the  prejudice against the hen may at  times be well-founded, so far as  damage to the garden is concerned,  yet there f re exceptions. There are  breeds of fowls—such as the Cochins and Brahmas—that cannot fly  over a four-ioot fence, and which  endure confinement well, but really  it is only for a short period that the  hen can do harm in the garden. It  is better to retrain her until the  plants are well under growth, as  she is very partial to small seeds,  but when the ground is covered  with growth she will industriously  seek insects, green food and worms,  doing no harm at scratching unless  the ground has been recently cultivated so as to afford her a loose soil  iu which she can work for worms.  She rarely touches the plants in the  rows if there is an abundance of  tender weeds and grass, and she  will probably perform service more  valuable than any damage she may  inflict. It is not inferred, however,  that the garden is a place for the  hens, but when the plants approach  maturity the fowls can do no Jam-  age and will render valuable assistance, the hens raising their broods  and producing eggs at a cost of but  little for sustenance, rts they can secure a large proportion of food for  themselves, if at large during those  seasons of the year when they can  work iu the garden and field.—  American Gardener.

It is an admitted principle in feeding for nfilk that a high degre? of  succulence in a dairy ration is a distinct advantage. Nothing is better  for the dairy cow than early grass  say along in June, when it has  made sufficient growth to have lost  its washiness and yet still remains  in a high degree succulent, not having been dried up by the hot suit -  mer sun. Many other feeds, from  a standdoint of mere nutritive content, are identical, o: nearly so, in  composition, but zs a practical food  the June grass appeals to the cow  in a way that other foods of similar  composition but with less succulence  do not. They are not so palatable  and they do not seem to have an  equally beneficial physical effect  upon the animal's digestion.  In a way that appears to be similar in kind, silage seems in a like  manner to be superior as a dairy  food. If well made it is very palatable, and it possesses a high degree  of succulence that is not mere water,  but water impregnated with the  natural juices of the plant from  which the feed is made. The advantage of succulence in the feed  stuff is an experimentally ascertain-  fact, based on no very well ascertained scientific theory, but it is a  fact nevertheless. Practical men  have proved it in countless instances  even when they knew very little  about scientific feeding. It is a fact,  too, that dairymen should carry  with them into their winter's thinking and planning, with a view.;of  making succulence a feature in next  season's feeding scheme. This can  be done readily enough by providing partial soiling crops for the dry,  midsummer weather next year,  which is sure to follow the early  luscious grass period, making the  pastures deficient in both quality  and quantity. Then for late fall  and winter the farmer who is in  dairying "for keeps," ought to  think seriously of providing silage,  if he has not already done so. It is  about the only means by which succulent food can be secured for the  winter season. The crops that can 1  be made available for the dry, hot  period are numerous enough, but  for winter, silage, and, in the main,  corn silage, is about the resource.  Dairymen can this winter very advantageously devote considerable  thought to perfecting the plan by  which next year's feeding crops can  be grown, keeping the importance  of succulence and palatability in  as important elements.—The Rural  Home,    A Case in Point.  At Upper Canada College, Toronto, recently, one of the teachers,  in talking to a class, asked the boys  to give examples of proper nouns  that could have no plural. A small  boy raised his hand promptly, and  was asked to make answer. "Hell,  sir," said the boy mentioning a  place which certainly is singular  enough.    Mrs. Hiram—And have you any  references?
