O.  O. P., after a few days on the Delta, left for Vancouver.  Miss Phcebe Coram, of Vancouver high school, arrives to-day, to  spend her holidays with Eva McDonald.  H. N. Rich is offering by private  •ale the properties unsold at the recent auction. Terms and full particulars can be obtained by applying  to him.  Mrs. Hays entertained a number  of her friends on Tuesday evening  last. Progressive whist and dancing was the order of the evening  and a pleasant time was spent.  The morning service in St. An-  erew's Presbyterian church will be  postponed to-morrow, owing to the  funeral of the late Mrs. P. Clark,  which will leave the house at io  a. m, sharp.  R. Morrison, of Muir's drug  •tore, Westminster, took charge ot  F. Mackenzie's drug store while  that geutlemhn.attended.the golden  wedding of his parents at Westminster on Tuesday'evening.  $35.00 ia cash given away at  Johnston's shoe store, New Westminster. This tbe chance of a lifetime and purchasers of footwear  could not do better than investigate  this.    Read their ad in this issue.  Miss E. L. Burpee, teacher in  division III, Ladner public school,  has resigned, to accept a position in  Strathcona school, Vancouver.  Her departure from our midst will  be a source of regret but we wish  her every success in her new undertaking.  We would not be surprised to  hear the Ladner Cornet Band serenading the town on Christmas eve.  There is nothing more appropriate  than ushering in the great holiday  festival with the sweet strains of  "Christmas Awake" aud other  suitable music.  A seven cent stamp, yellow in  color, appears in a few days. This  new stamp will bear the Queen's  head, the department not having  yet decided a design for tbe King's  head issue. A four-cent stamp will  also make its appearance in the near  future.  Word has been received here of  an injury to Paul Swenson, the  well known, canner, who left here  over a week ago, intending to spend  his Christmas in-the'old country.  Mr. Swenson is now laid up in the  hospital at Pembroke, Ont., his foot  having been chrushed between two  oars.  Geo. O. Dennis, of East Delta,  called on ye editor the other day  and presented him with two beautiful, ducks. On casually inquiring  of the health of the "boy" we' were  informed that his lordship weighed  11 pounds at his birth, thus getting  a good start in life. "Yes," said  Mr. Dennis, "its in the blood, you  know." Correct you are, Mr. Dennis, the Irish are all right, and  here!s to the health of the young-;  CALL A MEETING  The reeves of Chilliwack and  Surrey are calling public meetings  for next week, the purpose being  the discussion of municipal business.  It would be an excellent idea for  the reeve of Delta to follow suit in  this matter as some of our electors  still retain a slight interest in public affairs.  SIDEWALKS.  A correspondent writing to The  Delta News says:  "If ever people are requested to  walk on a straight and narrow way  it is the people of Ladner. The  sidewalks are built so narrew here  that only an expert can walk them  and then he needs a balancing pole.  If Ladner doesn't turn out a lot of  circus performers it will not be the  fault ofthe municipal council."  NANAIMO ELECTION  The election in North Nanaimo  Monday, gave Hon. W. W. B. Me-  Innes a majority of 10S. The vote  was :  Mclnues. Williams.  Wellington    201 149  Parksville      50 4  Nanoose      12 3  263 155  Majority for Melunes 108  Total number of votes cast, 41S.  THE RIVER ROAD.  It is probable that tenders will be  called within a few days for the construction of tha remaining portion  oi the Ladner trunk road along the  river bank. A number of government officials, including Road Inspector Killeen, are at piesent going  over the proposed route of the road,  and it is stated that as soon as their  report is presented to the government the call for tenders will be  made.  NO VOTE FOR JAPS.  The Privy Council has reversed  the decision of the S .iprenie Court  of British Columbia iu the case of  Tommy Home, the Jap who, as a  neutralized British subject claimed  the right to be on the provincial  voter's list.  The decision is that the provincial legislature has power te define  who shall not be ou the list; and  having excluded persons of Japanese origin, this exclusion stands.  OFF FOR HOLIDAYS  M, C. Ironside who has held the  position of purser on the steamer  Transfer for several months past,  has been given a couple of months  holidays and will leave in a few  days for his home at Manitowaning,  Manitoullu Island, Ont. Since  Mr. Ironsides has been on this route  he has given satisfaction to tbe  travelling public and to the people  along the river ports. Donald C.  McKay, of Victoria, who has been  in the company's office there and  on the northern routes will take the  position on the Transfer. Mr. Ironsides' many friends wish him the  best of luck on his trip.  The Liberals have nominated R.  G. Macpherson for the Burrard  vacancy.  0  Meeting and Election of  Officers for Coming  Year  I. 6. O. F.

WILSON  A case of considerable importance  to municipalities is now pending  wherein the municipality of Delia  is suing Dr. Wilson, of Ladner, for  alleged overdue dyking taxes and  rates respecting the Delta Dyking  Scheme. Dr. Wilson, through his  solicitors, Morrison, Whiteside &  Co., contends that the municipality had no jurisdiction to pass the  by-laws in question, and also that  they proceeded wrongfully in their  assessment and apportionment. He  aslo claims that money raised under  one by-law and spent under another by-law.  A number of legal points were  raised on tha pleadings. An appli  cation was made to have these law  points argued aad determined before  trial, with a view to ending the case  without taking evidence. After  several adjournments the argument  took place Thursday in Vancouver,  before the Chief justice on the application ol" Howay & Reid, acting  for'Delta.  The learned Chief Justice, after  hearing arguments of council, declined to determine the points raised  holding that there was a conflict of  evidence, aud that if both parties  could not agiee as to the facts, the  case should proceed in the usual  way to trial.  NEW SKEENA CANNERY.  \ V '-e steamer Tees, Tuesday,  W. j. Leary, the manager of tlie  Aberdeen cannery on the Skeena,  H. J. Kirkland, manager of tlie  Deas Island cannery on the Fraser,  and J. B. Elliott, a well known contractor of this town, went north to  arrange lor the erection of a new-  cannery on the Skeena, to be owned  by Messrs. Findlay Durham &  Brodie, of Victoria, who have  formed an independent canning  firm, and handle and ship their  own packs in and to the London  market.    NORTH VICTORIA.  A lively political meeting was  held at Fulford Harbor, North Victoria on Tuesday night. Addresses  were made by the candidates, Robertson, government, and T. W. Paterson, opposition. Hon. E- G.  Prior and John Oliver, M.P.P.  Many personal retorts were interchanged. Tne campaign is becoming sultry. Paterson' was attacked  by Eberts fcr alleged connection  with the Shuswap and Okanagan  railway. Paterson retorted by a  deliberate chaige of blackmail  against the attorney-general, saying  that he was compelled by Theodore  Davie to pay £1,000 to Messrs. Eberts & Taylor before getting justice  from the government, notwithstanding that the firm never did any  work them.  Took   Place    on   Friday-  Morning at Six  O'c'ock.  After an illness of the lungs, last*  ing for over a year, the wife of Peter  Clark, one of our highly respected  residents, passed away on Friday  morning at 6 o'clock.  Her death was not entirely unexpected, and for several days previous deceased was for the most  part unconscious.  Mrs. Clark was born near Pas-  linch, Ont., her maiden name being  Mary Gregor.  Deceased was 27 years of age, and  for the past three years and a half  has been a resident of Ladner. 8he  leaves a faa:ily of five, two boys and  three girls, the eldest being seven  and the youngest three. Her only  relatives in this part of Canada besides her husband and family, an  Mrs. D. McLean and Mrs. P. McKenzie, sisters-in-law, aid Angus  Clark, Vancouver, brother-in-law.  Deceased had been in the Okanagan district for several montht to  recuperate and had only been horn*  a few weeks when death .overtook  her.  The funeral will leave the house  at 10 o'clock, Rev. Oswald officiating  The many friends of the family  joins with the Delta News in extending sympathy to the bereaved  husband and little children in time  of trouble.  MUD BAY.  The young people of Mud Bay  and vicinity have organized a Literary and Debating Society, with  tbe following officers :  Pres., E N Brown, Vice Pies ,  Judson Welsh, Secretary, Allan  Johnson, Treasurer, Miss Millie  Johnson.  The society will meet in the  school house every Wednesday  eveuing.  The subject for next night is "Resolved, that tha sword has done  more for civilization than- the pen."  Visitors always welcome.  ANOTHER DELTA RAILWAY.  Solicitors for the applicants give  notice of application for an act to  incorporate a company to construct  a railway for the carrying of freight  and passengers from a point in of  near the city of New Westminster;  thence southerly across the Fraser  river: thence in a south-westerly  direction by the most feasable route  through the municipalities of Surrey and Delta to a' point at or near  Ladner or Port Guichon, with  power to construct, equip, maintain  and operate branch lines.  GOLDEN WEDDING.  Mr. aud Mrs. Duncan MacKenzie, old residents of Clover Valley,  celebrated their golden wedding in  Westminster, Tuesday night. It  was made the occasion of a family  re-union, 32 children and grandchildren being present. Tht aged  couple are enjoying excellent health  as also a brother of Mrs. Mackenzie  who was present at the wedding  ceremony in Wellington Square,  I Ont., 50 years ago.  Matters in municipal politics are  quiet, and it seems very probable  that  the old  council will go ia bf  acclamation.  The road superintendent and men  are at work building the sidewalk  along the main street.  D.  MacKenzie   was   in Ladner,  Friday,, visiting wfth his brother,,.,  F. J. MacKenzie.

The Delta News is ever ready to  push forward any project for the  entertainment and education of its  many readers, and when some of  our young people a short time ago  suggested that a 'Literary and Debating Society' be organized for  the winter months, we heartily endorsed the scheme. The obvious  good such an organization would  do the many young folk in and  around Ladner is ably put forth in  e> communication from one of our  correspondents.  "We would suggest to the people  pf Ladner and vicinity,   the  advisi-  bility of forming  a literary society  Which could meet during the winter  months.    This would  be  a  source  of entertainment as well as an aid  in educating our  young  people iu  the arts of speaking and writing on  subjects   of  public   interest.    Tht  faculty of expressing ideas by means  pf speech  in  a clear and  forcible  manner is becoming almost a last  art among this generation.    This  is particularly noticeable at our public meetings where we do not find  one person in a hundred  capable of  expressing his  thoughts concisely  and intelligibly.

I  MUM mu  Meetiag in Town Hall-  Committee Appointed.  Only a small crowd gathered iu  the town hall on Monday night to  discms the advisibillty of sinking  artesian wells in the hope of procuring good water for the municipality. This is rather discouraging as the question of good water ia  of vital importance.  Two tenders were presented.  Reeve Ladner, on taking the  chair, introduced Mr. Lee, of Vancouver, an expert well-borer, who  gave the following facts and figares:  Eatimated cost of well-digging  machine, engine and boiler omitted,  $2773-55- These figures include  70ofeetof 8 inch pipe at present  cat price of $1.15 per foot, and 1,000  feet of 6 inch,piping at cut price of  74 centa per foot,- totaling for pipe  alone $1,545. This gives a well  1000 feet in depth.  Aa water is fouad at different  depths, the well, perhaps,, might  not need to be so deep, consequently the expense would be much less.  Sundiiea te be purchased locally,  such as lumber, carpenter's and  blacksmith'9 tools, estimated price,  makes a grand total of $3,i59-°5-  Outside pf this comes Mr. Lee's  wages per day, #4.00, and that of  his help.  Mr. Lee in his remarks stated  that there was nothing to lead him  to think that water could not be  found here. '  An estfaate ofthe cost of a well  fnnk on Whidby Island of 227 feet  was $1000.  . Mr. Ladner then read the second  tender from Mr. Morrison, of Owen  Sound, Out, which figures up as  follows :  Mr. Morrison recommends a No.  5 machine and tools, including piping and casing, costing about $3,000  fh Pittsburg, freight and duty to be  added to that.  He fa of the opinion that $500  would cover the cest of piping and  casing.  Again he advocates purchasing  an outfit in Canada, thereby saving  the cost of duty.  Such a machine in Canada, including everything, could be had  for about $2,000, some timber needed coiild be purchased locally.  This outfit would require from two  to three months to place on the  ground.  Mm Morrison advocates joining  with |tcveston, thereby. lightening  the expense of each and ultimately  reaching the same end.  After both plans had been discussed it was decided that a committee, be formed to interview a  number of farmers and townspeople,  and if satisfactory, communication  was to be opened up with a party  in Fairhaven having a machine at  present in disuse, said machine to  be procured if possible and brought  over on trial, before going into more  expensive measures.  Those on the committee were:  Messrs. Reeve and Thos. Ladner,  Ja». McCallan, Wm. Arthur and  David McKee.  . On report of the- committee a  meeting will be held in the future  to make more definite arrangements.  Notes.  One man evidently came prepared  to talk up the' pure water scheme  but we're under the impression that  it wasn't water that he hadv!n the  bottle in his pocket.  One gentleman present thought  that the water was pretty bad, but  for many years had been drinking  it more or less (generally less) apd  was still hale and hearty.  Thi9 doing away with rain water  will be the cause of throwing one  of our esteemed correspondents out  of a job.  Well! well! Mr. well-driller, such  a well well-bored would be well for  us.  What with the W.C.T.U. advocating the doing away with the  "strong" drink, and the present  committee that of the "soft" one,  guess we'll have to take our drinks  "straight."  Under existing conditions, the  unfortunate citizen drinks river  water and contracts typhoid ; he  drinks rain-water and gets diphtheria; he drinks whiskey and is fined  $10. In fact the average citizen is  strictly up against it.  MORE DISALLOWANCE.  The Act Passed by the British  Columbia Legislature to further  amend the Coal Mines Regulation  Act, has been disallowed by an Or-  der-in-Council.  Auother Act to regulate immigration into British Columbia has  also been disallowed, as well as an  Act relating to the employment at  works carried on under franchises  granted by private act.  TO FIGHT AGAIN.  Robert Fitzsimmous and James J.  Jefferies gave a sparring exhibition  in Portland a few nights ago, and  before going on the stage Fitzsim-  mons declared his intention of reentering the ring. He said: "I  am willing to fight any man in the  world, bar nobody. I did intend to  quit the ring after my fight with  Jefferies, but I am as good a man  to-day as ever I was, and better  than any other fighter that I know  oi except the present champion."  OUGHT TO MAKE A " HIT."  President John Mitchell, uf the  United Mine Workers, recently connected with the great strike, is to  write a book dealing with the question of capital and labor, and givitig  a detailed history of the strikes of  1900 and 1902.  With a view to improving the  herd at Victoria our Deputy Minister of Agriculture, who has gone  eust in search of information, has  been making a plea at Ottawa for  the free entry of Angora goats.  Mr. Anderson says that they are  "rather fancied in our province."—  Columbian.  Capt. Bernier has declined the  $5,000 offered by both Victoria and  Vancouver to build his outfit in  those cities. He says he will give  the preference to Quebec, but at the  same time says that offers of this  kind are very acceptable.  , He was a red-headed man; aud  as he stepped in our sanctum the  Other, day his brazen lace wore a  quizzical expression. That was not  so extraordinary,—perhaps it was  an obituary poem or a Christmas  ode; but when he calmly asked us  if the Salvation Army had arrived  in town Sunday night (having  heard strange sounds), we were  speechless, and in our confusion he  made his escape. Should ke dare  to call again we will proceed to  make dints in his cranium and end  by firing him through the window.  "Nuff said.  There is Some talk of organizing  a base ball club iu town and a meeting-will be called soon after New  iYJear's for that purpose. We have  lots of good material for a fast ball  team aud hope that those who are  interested will attend the meeting  and do all they can to help the  snort along.  A FACT.  The premier's action in regard to  the vacant seat for West Yale must  not be allowed to pass. The people  must make themselves heard, and  if the governrxent remains obdurate  a petition should be presented to  His Honor the Lieutenant-Governor. Extreme cases need extreme  remedies, and this is one of them.  It is beside the case to say that the  will of the people must be expressed j  in the Legislature. It cannot be so  expressed if the people's representation is denied to them.—News-Advertiser.  -+-  I    Delta Transfer Stable  X LADNER, B. C.
