 NEWS  7  -**-  V«>i. 2. Hi. _i  LADNER, B C, SATURDAY,   JULY 11, 190..  91.00 a y«__  A Times Correspondent  Gives an Account of His  Trip aad What He  S i _/ in the Delta.  The trip between Sidney and  'Port Giicbon [says the Victoria  Tim.-] is practically one among  islands. Emerging frona Plumpers  __ss, about an hour's run, brings  -net-jj IrWL^d,H*_d3^;t\th«  tiioulb. of the Fraser. From this on  the trip is again alongside of agriculture lands.  That the trade to be developed dn  this __ne will in time be enormous  is not to be doubted for a moment.  The line is arranged to give a very  direct service from all the Delta  country to this City. Hitherto the  'country now opened up by the new  line of railway through the.. Delta  has had no means 'of access _o the  'odtside other than .he river. The  result has been that .he farms which  were worked were !devoted largely  speaker oi the evening, who gave  an interesting account of his stewardship. That it was satisfactory  was manifest by tbe unanimous approval ofthe audience.  Mr. Oliver also gave a very clear  account Of the "Crows-Nest" Pass  Railway deal and the actions of the  C. P. R., aud the Government in  the matter. The meeting was a  very interesting one and the sympathy of the audience was with the  Speaker throughout.  In conclusion a motion was made  by Thos. Shannon and carried unanimously "That a vote of thanks  be given Mr. Oliver for what he has  done, that his action be endorsed  and that we pledge him our hearty  support for the future."  The meeting then adjourned with  a vote of thanks to the Chairman.  BASEBALL.  The baseball match Ladner v  East Delta took place on the Agricultural Society's grounds on Wednesday afternoon. There was a  £ood attendance of spectators. The  following comprised ._.« teams:-  Ladner; W Taylor, W H Wilson,  A Fox, F McKenzie, L Kerfoot, F  Guichon, H Falk, A G Gaines, A  Yorke; East Delta; S Weaver, C  Wilson, A Johnson, J Weaver, J]  Kelly, J Livingstone, F Weaver, 0  weaver, and A Brown,  boys had aneasy victory toy i3 to 3  A bicycle race between Siddall and  About 150 have registered  their  names   at   the municipal office for  , the provincial voters list.

The result will  be that mixed farming will become  more and more the rule. Already,  'some of the large farms are being  'divided into smaller tracts of fifty  _nd'6_e hundred acres, which will  res_lt in a large increase ofthe farming population, and more careful  .armiog operations.  Thousands of acres of the richest  land in the world is thus awating  the necessary improvements in-the  way of draining and cultivation -to  make it as productive as the richtfist  lands of the prairies, while the  ■equitable clithate makes it possible  to produce crops which can never  be grown with success in the 'more  severe climate of __.mit&__ and the  Northwest Territories.  In the Delta, which is only spars  ley settled, compared with the pop-  ulation which it is. capable of supporting, the creamery is manufacturing now from five to six hundred  pounds of butter a day.  It is reported that that line Will  tie contiuued from the Brownsvifle  .nd of the New Westminster bridge  to Point Roberts in the near futtfre,  •and that the ferry service will .hen  •call at the latter point. This will  'shorten the water run from Sidney  'to the Mainland by about eighteen  miles, and will reduce the time em  iploye_ on it by over an hoar.  in first. A foot race and -the Chinamen's pig race are still on the tapis  and may come off this afternoon.  ORANGE  CELEBRATION.  On Monday the great demonstration of Oiangemen takes place at  New Westminster. The members  of the local lodge of L. O.

So  far John Oliver, our late member,  is the only candidate, who has offered his services for the Delta riding.

Owing to the advent of a professional exponent of the dancing art  the Trenant Park Club has been  dissolved.

The Liberal is a new weekly-  journal and review of politics published by John Kennedy in New  Westminster, Its first issue is a  very creditable production. As it  says itself unblushingly • the paper  is neat, compact and convenient in  form and arrangement, and we may-  add newsy.  word comes from west Yale that  D. Murphy, ex-M. P. P., will accept the Liberal nomination for the  provincial election, and it is altogether likely that he will get it. It  was Murphy who threw up his  portfolio, which he had just accepted, rather than soil his hands in the  Victorian political mire.  The first sod in the construction  of the Ladner Road was turned oft  Wednesday T.

Ladner and Port Guichon were  vvel! represented at the Point Roberts sports on Independence D_$.  The declaration was read by C. S.  Vantyl, a veteran of the civil war.

They have  only a bi-weekly service and New  Westminster is -trie dis_rib_ting ceff-  ter, where all Surrey mails have to  go first. A direct mail service ly  the Port Guichon and Sidney ferry  between tbe island and the mainland is essential. Along the C P R  route there is a daily sen -ice for  every town. The chamber of commerce should keep up its good  work and not let the agitation stop*  SIDETRACKS.  On Tuesday evening while the |  Dunsmuir was making a landing at  the Ladn-r wharf a deck hand  named Geo. Spinning, a former resident here, had the forefinger of his  right hand crushed by a boiler forming part ofthe freight, which rolled  with the oscillation of the vessel.  The finger was crushed to pulp,  and the other fingers bruised. Dr.  Woodley amputated the member at  the knuckle, assisted by Dr. King.  "Hollvwood," the residence of  Thomas Shotboldt, was the scene  of a very pretty weeding last week,  the principals in the affair being  two highly esteemed young Victorians—Frank T. Elford, eldest son  of Theo. Elford, Esq., and Miss  Florence Lavinia Shotboldt, daughter of Thomas Shotboldt. The interesting ceremony was performed  by the Right Rev. Bishop Cridge  in the presence of friends ot the contracting parties, who had many  congratulations showered upon them  Mrs, W. L- McBride and Miss L-  Arthur were among the guests.  Last Monday afternoon the members ofthe Municipal Council, clerk^  road foremen arid several citize»j»  were the guests of the Railway  Company on a trip from Port  Guichon to Med Bay.

John Oliver being asked by tke Liberal how the  work of registering the voters was  proceeding, said it was not proceeding, and that, jf some change were  liot mg,de, hundreds otherwise qualified to vote wiU find themselves  disfranchised on election day, both  Provincial $nd Dominion, as the  Dominion lists are made up from  the Provincial ones, There appears  tb be throughout the country a deliberate attempt to keep hundreds  ofthe voters lists. In his speech  the other night, our late member  urged upon the young men to register, and they cannot be urged too  n__ch. Young men as a rule are  careless about their political rights-  •specially those living in the country- as they seldom have a chance  of attending public meetings or hear  constitutional principles discussed.  It would be convenient and show  ail open mind, it-the- government  gazetted managers: ot canneries,  ljimbtr. camps, surveyors, and the  heads of all isolated industries as  special constables under the Act, as  i| is in their power to do, so that  they can register the names of their  employes.

The following letter from fhe  Dominion Entomologist contains  very valuable information to strawberry growers and has been handed  to us by W. J. Brandrith. secretary  of the B. C. Fruit Growers Association, for publication. Mr. Rich's  action in sending, specimens of grubs  to Ottawa should be followed whenever strange insects are discovered  in farms or gardens. All inquiries  about insects or plants are attended  to; and specimens packed in close  tin 01 wooden box or plants packed  in sheets of paper, are carried free  by mail when addressed to the Entomologist and Botanist, Central  Experimental Farm, Ottawa:-  To H, N. Rich.,E.sq., Ladner,B.C.  My Dear Sir,—Your letter of the  27th ult. and the accompanying  box of specimens has been received.  The grubs you send are the larvae  of the Black Vine Weevil, Otiorhyn-  chus sulcatus, a very destructive  insect to Strawberry plants. The  only recommendation I can make  for you to grow your Strawberries  on the single crop plan, This consists of putting out your sets say  this spring, cultivate them through  this summer and plough up after  the crop is gathered the following  year. This insect is now very troublesome in your Province and I get  frequent complaints concerning it.  I may mention with regard to the  above method that commercial  strawberry growers find that the  single crop plan pays them better  than the old way of leaving their  beds down for several years. The  fruit is so much better. The worst  injuries by this insect are done in  oloj-beds,    Yours very truly,  James Fletcher.  Dominion Entomologist  N. rr_ D-koU.  Apropos, u. ^e treating clause in  Liquor By-law recently  passed by  Delta Corporation, which comes into or ^ration  on Wednesday  next,  the Auti-Treating League, launched  in Dublin a few weeks ago under so j«  much   pessimistic   criticism,    has  made magnificent strides, branches  now bek'.g  organized  all over the  country, while the supply  barroom loafers is growing beautifully less  The object of the League is to check  that mischievous spirit of mistaken  good fellowship which leads to excessive   drinking,     tke    members  pledging  themselves neither to accept a dritik nor to proffer oue.    It  will    be    found    on    perusal   of  the    following    incident    that   a  similar   law    exists    in    at   least  one   Staje   of   the  "Union.    John  Myers, st well known travellingman  has jus.t returned from a trip through  North Dakota, alter passing through  what he claims to be the most novel  expedience he has ever had in his  life.    He says there is a law in that  state which prohibits what is known  as "treating,"  or  buying  a drink  for another.    "I never knew anything about such a law," he said  yesterday, "and in the course of my  rounds passed through the southern  part of the state in a buggy.    I ate  dinner at a house, and before leav  ing  gave the  man  at the stable a  drink out of my bottle.    I had only  been in Dickey a few hours when I  was placed under arrest on p. warrant sworn out by ray landlord, back  ou  the  road,   charging  me   with  treating his hired man.    I thought  it was a joke until I was forced to  put up bonds for my appearance in  court.    The  following  day I was  fined $1 and costs, and you can bet  I will never treat a man again in  North Dakota.  ' 'It seems the law is there all right  but has been a dead letter. The  only way I can figure it out is that  the old mau was mad because I did  not offer him a swig, and took ad  vantage just to heal his wounded  feelings."  PAkLOR  ."o1 .coo.

In the first opening of Oklahoma  to   settlers   in 1889, the editor of  this paper   was   among   tl e 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 diar  rhoea which it seemed  almost im  possible to check, and along in June  the case became so bad he expected  to die.   One day one of his neigh  bors brought him one small bottle  of Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and  Diarrhoea Remedy as   a last hope  A big dose was given him while, he  was rolling about on the groupd in  great agony, and in a few minutes  the dose was repeated.     The goqcl  effect of the medicine was soon not.  iced and within an hour the patient  was taking his first sound sleep for  a fortnight.     That one little bottle  worked   a   complete   cure and he  cannot help but feel grateful.   The  season for bowel.disorders being at  hand suggests this item.   For sale  oy jF. J. MacKemzie.

"Bismarck told me that when General Grant came to Berlin he accompanied him to see one of the reviews at  the Tempelhofei- feld.

Pack ul Cants.  Tl. ordinary playing cards of today  /are derived from a stick game supposed to have ori inated In this country. Fifty small st cks are a pack. The  "game" was originally for tlie player  to divide the sticks rapidly with bis  two bands, the opponent guessin.  which hand held the larger number.  Owners of sticks spent rainy days in  carving them. The Asiatics borrowed  tho game and carved more elaborate  counters out of ivory. Those with different carvings grew to have different  values. Arranging them in groups of  fours made it necessary to add two to  the original number. Then thin slabs  of ivory began to be used.  For centuries after this all playing  cards were hand painted, at first on  ivory or metal, afterward on cardboard. The pictures, at first legendary  heroes and ladies, gradually became the  fixed, wood faced caricatures we now  know, and these, coming back to America ln their westward journey around  the world, find our Pacific coast Indians still juggling the same kind of  sticks  their   forefathers  used.  _-___r r-  "■-■'■■: .-'    3   Und Be-a Tin're.

A rock foundation is unimpeachable for stability, but it may  be very bad when It comes to a matter  of drainage, whether it be for the disposal of sewage or of surface or ground  water. A cellar excavated in the rock  is usually a wet cellar, because the water leeches through the crevices and  seams in the rock, and it is both difficult and expensive to trench and drain  properly about the walls of a building  ito a medium so hard to excavate. To  _>e sure, If the rock drops away quick-  'dy on a sharp grade this difficulty may  *e altogether a minor one. A good  :gravel soil is one of the best to build  •upon in respect both to drainage and  to the stability of the house, and compact sand, if not subject to .the action  of runping witter. Is a most excellent  foundation and a thoroughly good mo-  «_i_m.  The Word "Star-nilon."  The word "starvation" was introdu.  ed into the English language by its  coiner, Henry Dundas, afterward Vis- ;  count Melville. It was originally used  by him in a speech in parliament on  the American debate in 1775 aud was  immediately caught up and applied to  himself in a political nickname, so that  he was known thenceforward as "Starvation" Dundas."  "I shall not," such was his declaration, "wait for the advent of starvation from Edinburgh to settle my judg- i  | ment."  Before the time of Dundas "starve," !  "starving," "starved" and "starveling" |  were in use, but hunger or famine rep-  resented the state of starvation.  Although this word lias now an es- 1  | tablished place in our vocabulary, it j  ; was   at  lirst   vigorously   opposed   by I  j many, nnd on just grounds, as of by- i  j brid formation.    The root "starve" is I  I old English, while the ending, "ation," |  is Latin.    It does not appear in any  : English dictionaries until the jcar IS09.

Not many young ladies in Canada can boast of having cut the entire crop of their .ather's farm.  '   The two young daughters of Mr.  George Wells can do so, however.  Mr. Wells' farm is situated one  mile south of Wellwaod Station on  the famous Carberry plains. He  'cultivates 320 acres.  Owing to scarcity of help, Miss  Edfe and Miss Emma Wells volunteered to drive their father's Massey-  Harris binders through the harvest  As a result of their efforts, Mr.  Wells was the first farmer on the  plains to finish cutting.  1 How much ofthe spirit of Cana la  and Canadians' thete is in thi«=!
