New Westminster, May 3.—The  market held on Friday was one of  the best that has been held for some  time, the attendance .of farmers  being particularly good and buyers  were also plentiful, but for all the  business done was not more than  the average.  There was a decided flutter in the  price of butter and eggs, the former  dropping several points while quotations on the latter are a little higher. Good butter was retailed as low  as 25c" a pound ■while eggs could  not be got even in wolesale lots for  less than 22^0.  Meats were steady and the supply was ma average one. Sales how-  ■lever were not as brisk as usual and  sqnie dealers had small quantities  left on their hands at the close of  ;the market.

Malins, and J. McEwen of the  Royal City visited Ladner last week.  The Ladner Liberal Association  will hold a meeting in the Town  Hall on Tuesday evening.  Joseph Guichon, of Quilchena in  Nicola Valley, and Frank Ray of  Mammette Lake, came down from  the upper country to attend the  funeral of the late Laurent Guichon.  Geo. Ashwell, who has been employed in the drygoods department  ofthe establishment of the late Thos.  McNeely left this morning for Dresden, Ont, where he will take the  management of a manufacturing  concern.  Mrs. Devereaux went up to Westminster Monday to see her son off to  Africa, who left -with the fourth  contingent that 'day. Mrs. Devereaux's eldest son is now at the front  having enlisted with the Strathcona  Horse.  Mr. and Mrs. Rod Cummings of  Langley Prairie were the guests of  Mr. and Mrs W. Livingstone this  week. Mr. Cummings thinks the  season here must be nmch earlier  than on the Prairie, as the grass and  fruit are further advanced. While  in Ladner he purchased some fat  cattle for the New Westminster  market.  William Livingstone's # little  daughter had a narrow escape from  being burned to death last Saturday  afternoon, while playing it isthought  with matches her clothes took fire.  Her mother happened to see her in  time to extinguish the Acmes before  very serious injuries happened. As  it is the little tot was pretty badly  burned.  Fast bicycle riding in Ladner is a  very common occurance. A great  many of these wheeled gentleman  do not think it worth while to carry  a bell,or if tliey have one, to ring it.  An accident will happen some of  these days that will be an eye-opener  to somebody. The other evening a  young gentleman fast rider, collided  with a fence while turning a corner.  Result— fence still standing.bicycle  and man both needing repairs.  MECHANICS'  INSTITUTE  Reading   Room   Meeting  Will be Held This  Evening.  The public meeting of those interested in the Mechanics' Institute  Reading room and a library, was  held in the Town Hall on Saturday  evening last, with President Shirley  in the chair. The meeting developed into rather a lively one before it  finally decided to adjourn until this  evening. Judging from the interested discussions which took place the  reading room will have an excellent  home and be a useful institution,  that is if talk counts for anything.  W. H. Ladner, who was present stated that he was willing to  give the site in front ofthe English  church, facing Westham street tor  reading room purposes. He also  agreed to put up a building provided,  satisfactory arrangements were  made to guarantee interest on the  money. A committee composed of  the present board of directors were  appointed to see what arrangements  could be made, and report next  meeting. A committee was then  appointed to see what amounts could  be collected towards paying for the  subscriptions for papers and magazines for the coming year. As  Shown by the financial statement  only a small sum was on hand at  present.  Other matters of minor importance  cropped up which will likely be  further discussed at this evening's  meeting.  L> Guichon's Funeral.  The funeral of the late Laurent  Guichon took place from his residence at Port Guichon on Monday  morning. The remains were taken  to New Westminster on the steamer  Transfer for interment.  ■ On arrival at the city the funeral  went direct to St. Peter's cathedral,  where solemn requiem mass was  sung, Rev. Father Bunoz being the  celebant, assisted by Father O'Neill  as deacon and Father Pacoul as sub-  deacon. Father DeVrendt having  charge of the choir. The cathedral  was heavily draped for the occasion,  and a large congregation attended  the service. Subsequently the cortege proceeded to the Roman Catholic cemetery at Sapperton, where  the last sad rites were performed.  The pall-bearers were Mayor  Keary and Messrs. J. S. McDonald,  John Crean, A. L. Lavery, Arthur  Malins, T. S. Annandale and A.  Vachon.  May   Day.  A public meeting was held in the  Town Hall on Tuesday evening to  consider May Day celebration. E.  A. Bown was appointed chairman.  After considerable discussion the  following motion was carried:  "That the management of the  May Day celebration be left with  the Ladner Cornet Band to do as  they see fit in appointing the day  and nature of celebration". This  was moved by B. S. McDonald,  seconded by P. Shirley.  A committee meeting will be held  iu the town hall on Thursday next  at 8 p.m. to make final arrangements for the children's annual May  Day celebration. All the teachers  and a number of citizens are invited to act in conjunction with the hand  The May Day celebration appears  to  be an interesting matter to  the  people of Ladner at present.    By all  means give the children, and   incidentally the parents a days' outing,  from the usual cares.     Thk News  makes   the   following   suggestion,  that a departure be made  from the  usual May Day festivities, and give  the children an excursion on coroua-  tiong day to some suitable place.  If  thought  desirable the sports could  be arranged  out there,   but if not,  more enjoyment would be taken out  ofthe trip than in almost any  kind  of amusement given the children in  their  every-day play   ground.    In  connection with this  excursion we  would also suggest that it be a union  affair of all the schools in the Delta,  or as many as  would   care to  take  part.    We commend  these to the  careful consideration of the Band in  whose hands all arrangements, date,  and nature of the festivities are left.  LOCAL   NEWS.  J. Mcintosh, of McNeely's store  returned Thursday from a visit to  the Harrison Hot Springs.  Miss Allen who has been visiting  friends in the Royal City returned  to Ladner this week.  The Ladner Cornet Band will  play selections on the street on  Wednesday evening.  H. H. Lennie proprietor of the  Royal City musical emporium Visited Ladner yesterday.  The American officials at Point  Roberts have arranged with Dr.  Wilson to vaccinate -all the children  in that vicinity.  Wood, Vallance & Co., of Hamilton, Ont., have purchased the business of Thomas Dunn & Co., Vancouver, who recently assigned.  The regular meeting ofthe W.C.  T. U. will be held at the home of  Mrs. M. Collinson on Tuesday 6th  inst., at 3 p.m. All members are  requested to be present.  Thos. Thirkle's fine field of fall  wheat speaks well for the Delta.  He is quite proud of his crop, and  we trust it will be a grand yielder  when harvesting comes.  The boys from Ladner and Port  Guichon who left with the fourth  contingent were Nelson Lougheed,  corporal, Charles Helmer, George  Parker, James Depew, Aug. Devereaux and L. B. Lefroy.  Arrangements have been completed for the ninth annual convention  of the B. C. Union of Christian Endeavor which meets in the New  Westminster on May 12, 13 and 14.  Seyeral noted speakers have been  secured.  Myrom E. Wharton and Miss  Edna E. Goostrcy, who were united  in marriage at Blaine, Wash., on  Wednesday, April 16th, returned to  Ladner Thursday, and will reside  in this section. Both are well  known in the Delta and their many  friends wish  them every happiness.  The committee appointed to collect funds to carry on the reading  room are, we understand meeting  with considerable success, and every  ho^e is entertained that enough  funds will be on hand tonight to  guarantee the carrying on of the  Mechanics' Institute-reading room.  Richard McBride Speaks  for About Nine Hours  and Wins Point  The past week has been a very  interesting one as regards political  matters. The debate on the resolution of Mr. McBride condemning  the government for their conduct in  regard to foreshore was adjourned  after the following amendment,  moved by Mr. Oliver, had been  ruled out of order—That all the  words of the resolution to the first  word "that" be struck out and  the following words inserted in lieu  thereof : '' In the opinion of this  house, no foreshore rights should  be disposed of except by open competition, and under such conditions  that will insure the use and occupation of the same, and such restrictions as will prevent monoply  and the employment of Chinese and.  Japanese."  Mr. Prentice, after a very able  budget speech, moved that the house  go into committee of supplies, for  the purpose of considering the estimates. An amendment was moved  by Mr. Tatlow, and debated till the  house adjourned.  On the question of adjournment,  a very spirited discussion took  place, the opposition contending in  favor of a night session. The premier's motion U> adjourn was only  carried on the casting vote of the  Speaker.  On Tuesday, debate on Mr. Tat-  low's amendment to the motion for  Supply was continued by Mr. Mc-  Innes, who admittedly talked against  time until the arrival ofthe Charmer  from Vancouver, bringing Messrs.  Martin and Gilmour.  At the night session, the Government announced its intention to  bring the debate to a conclusion before, the House adjourned. This  called forth strong protests from  Messrs. Kidd, Oliver, Hawthorn-  waite and other independents, as  well as from the members of the op--  position.. The result was that after  a session lasting from 8^30 p.m. till  9:45 a. m., the .government had to  give away and upon the motion of  Mr. Martin the debate was ad'  jourued.  The opposition certainly gained a  great victory through Richard McBride's actions, The opposition  leader began at midnight and cow  ered himself with glory before the  session closed at 9:45 a.m. The  government was obliged to keep a  quorum of the house in the room  hence the strain fell on them rather  than on the opposition, Mr. McBride's speech was not quotations  from blue books and reading documents as was that of Mel 11n.es when  he spoke for "Blucher or night."  The wonderful recuperative powers  of Dewdney Dick were a surprise to  the government. Becoming tired  of tlie continual hot shot poured  among their ranks, Joseph Martin  came once more to the assistance of  the government.  I'pou the house resuming yesterday afternoon, Mr. Garden protest  against tlie debate on the motion to  go into committee of supply being  given preference, claiming that  private bills had the preference, and  his contention was upheld by the  speaker. ' ■  Thursday the rules was devoted  to • advancing public bills in the  hands of private members.  The rumor is current that the  house may adjourn for several  months to allow the premier to attend the coronation, or that prorogation will be forced as soon as tbe  estimates are passed. THE DELTA NEWS, SATURDAY, MAY fc, 1902.  THE    DELJA   JNEWS  BY  £Ig.   A. JfRASER.  Subscription Price, per year in advance, $1.00  SATURDAY, MAY 5,  1902.  A LIBRARY.  The idea of having a library in  connection with the reading room is  a good one. The papers and the  standard magazines make excellent  reading, but next to these come good  books. The library without the  reading room, or the reading room  without the library seems to be a  yery incomplete affair. Some people  prefer the newspapers, while no  doubt others prefer the books, and  there are thos* who lead both. The  provincial travelling library is un-  doubtably an excellent means of  supplying the people of this province  in outlying districts with reading,  but the people of Ladner should not  be content with only this. They  should endeavor to form right away  the- nucless of a standard library.  Now that W. H. Ladner has acted  the Carnegie of our community in  donating a site, and building under  certain conditions, it is up to some  other philanthropist to grant a library. Perhaps no one in Ladner is  in a position to do this, but those  interested can help by donating a  book or books, as a starter. In this  way an excellent beginning can be  made, and once begun we see no  reason why through time a fairly  large library could not be formed.  •The council and provincial government could be approached, with  safety, we think in this matter, and  asked to give an equal amount with  the people. If those having the  management are thoroughly in earnest the present agitation should result in something substantial being  parried out.  PREMIER  PRINCE  TheChoicestBred Imported Clydesdale.    Owned  by H.  M.  Vase/ of  Crescent Island.  More Ladner boys are now on  their way to South Africa. Their  names and faces are familiar to us  all. For their sake we shall possibly hereafter watch more closely  the affairs of South Africa. The  recruiting of the fourth contingent  has not beej» surrounded with the  same halo of excitement as on the  previous occasions perhaps on  account of there being a general impression abroad than the wax would  soon be over, or possibly because it  is not so new a proceeding as it once  was. However, there seems to be  as much eagerness on the part of our  young men to serve the Empire as  there was when the war first begun.  The heart of the average Canadian  is bound up in the affaiis of loyalty  to the king of the greatest Empire  the world has ever known. May  tjhose. who go on th*. fourth preserve  £he gl^rjr and honor of their pre-  flecesspis, and return someday loaded with a soldiers pride and joy, to  relate how battles were fought and  won.   Lady Dorothy Neville scored  against Mr. Winston Churchill at  the Duchess of Devonshire's recent  Reception (says the "\5feek-end").  Mr. Churchill declared that he was  not an jdVcjcate'of marriage, adding,,  "You know the Scripture tell us.  that there will be no marrying or  giving in marriage in heaven." "Of  course not," said Laly Dorothy in  her sweetest tones; "the bachelors  will all be in the other j lace, no  doubt,."  Premier Prince is a beautiful rich  bay with stripe in face and white  legs.

Premier Prince is a horse of outstanding excellence. In size of feet,  spring and length of pasterns,  amount and quality of bone, silki-  ness and abundance of feather depth  of rib action and general character.  He embodies all that is best in  Clydesdales and from his superior  individuality and his exceptionally  fine breeding lie must prove a great  horse and a gieat sire. His appearance in the show ring was at two  years old in 1901, when he won the  following prizes:  First at Toronto Industrial Exhibition. First at Buffalo Pan-  American Exposition.

The milking should be fairly fast,  as this increases the secretion, wherq  as slow milking reduces the quantity',  Tlie cow should be well stripped,  as the last strippings are richest in  fat, and if any milk is left it is harmful to the supply.  Milking by the old-fashioned  tubes produces less fat than hand-  milking.  A cow milked three times a day  instead of twice is said to yield more  milk, but net more butter fat; therefore, the three milkings will give  more but poorer milk that two milkings per day. With heavy milkers  it is advisable to milk three times a  day.    It lessens the strain on them.  If the teals are sore, they should  be handled with care, and after milking should be dressed with vaseline.  Milk does not become normal until five days after the cow has calved. An excess of albumen will  render the milk unsuitable for butter  or cheese-making before that time  has elapsed.  The morning milk contains less  butter fat than the afternoon milk.  The milk of cows suffering from  pleuro-pneumonia is deficient of a  large proportion of the normal  quantity of fat.  During the autumn months milk  has a higher percentage of fat and  other solids than during the summer  months.  Fresh milk has botfi an acid and  an alkaline reaction, but as free lactic  acid is speedily formed the alkaline  reaction disappears, and the acid reaction remains.  Milk should not be allowed to  freeze; butter made from milk which'  has been frozen has no flavour.  To strain milk well, a wire sieve  with thin cotteu cloth doubled to  four thicknesses ami fastened over  the bottom will be found effective;  The cloth should be well scalded in  boiling water each time after use.  Milk used for cheese making  should be strained and aerated thoroughly as soon as drawn, as the  flavour ofthe cheese will depend upon the perfect aeration of tire milk.  It should also not be cooled below  60 ° F.  Ropy or  stringy  milk, and  als<  that in which blue or red spots arc  found,   is  dire  to special forms  of  bacteria formed in the cow-shed.
