 I  '-; r  '        .  :'(..  Vol. 1. No. 6.  LADNER, B. C.j SATURDAY, HARCH 29, 1902.  $1.00 a year.  Price of Produce.—Hap-  ennings of The Week  -   at the Royal City.  New Westminster, March 29.—  The Easter .market is being held  , to-day instead of yesterday on account.of the latter being a holiday.  'The market is a lively one and sates  'are brisk, but there is little change  from the prices of last week although they are generally steadier.  Fergus Laidlaw, one of the best  known canners on the Fraser river  and part owner of the Delta cannery  at Ladner has been appointed manager of the Carlisle cannery at  Whatcom and left Friday for that  place. ;  Quite a number" of people <in this  city had contracts with the Tontine  Savings Company ©f Minneapolis  which has been .put out of business  by the United States government on  account of its fraudulent methods of  doing 'business. Those who had  contracts with'the company in this  city have of course lost all they paid  in which varied'.in sums of from'teir  to sixty (dollars. The company had  an agency 'her* for several .months.  * j  The ipdtjft® 'famine in 'Siwi 'Francisco SthT continues andlarge quanti-'  ties of the tdbers-are being shipped  regularly to the Golden Gate city  from this district. The latest shipment was sent South several days  ■ago and consisted of over twelve  Ihundred sacks.  The death occured in the city on  Friday last of Mrs. Thos. Sayer, an  old pioneer of New Westminster.  The deceased lady was sixty-one  years of age.  No trace has yet been found of  'Sam. Luudberg awell known fisherman who mysteriously disappeared  over a week ago. It is now supposed that he has committed suicide.  He was a member .of the Fraternal  Order of Eagles and ;tbe local Aerie  are offering a reward of #50 for the  recovery of his body 'or informafion  of his whereaboats.  -A large number of farmers and  settlers have come to New Westminster from North Dakota this  spring;and have settled in the sur-  ounding district.  An interesting case was disposed  of in 'the police court this week. It  was that of a boy who was arrested  forstealing a watch on a charge laid  by the boy's father. The evidence  'of the case however proved that the  father was the real culprit and the  boy was released and the father arrested and he is now doing time for  the theft.  Saved in Time.  About 11130 o'clock on Thursday  morning a fire was observed burning on the roof of the building form-.'  erly occupied by the firm of McKee  Bros, as a butcher shop, and now  partly in possession of Albert Walker, the barber. A bucket brigade  was immediately formed, T. Wooh  ery and A. Walker climbed to tbe  roof and with the assistance A. Fen-  ton, A. Roberts, John McKee, W.'  James, Guy Walker and the employees of the Delta hotel, the fire  was spepdily got under control. If  it had not been for the energetic efforts of the above parties there is no  it a serioas fixe would have oc-  curred, as the wind was blowing a  gale ait the time.  The only feasible idea is that the  fire may have been smouldering for  some time, as there was some old  cloth lining back of the sign board  on the roof, which was no doubt ignited by a spark some hours previous, the high wind.fanning it into  a blaze.  There was no damage done to  the building outside of a couple of'  small holes in the roof.  The necessity of fire protection is  illustrated by the above.  The Dominion governments offer  of a fourth contingent to go to  South Africa to aid the cause of the  empire, has been accepted. It will  probably !be the largest on record,  2,000 men,  Messrs H. J. Hutcherson, A.  Clausen, and J. Simpson, local nini-  rods, spent yesterday up along the  Nicomechkl. They report having an  excellent time and a good catch.  Miss Leon a Whitworth entertained her schoolmates and companions  at a birthday party yesterday afternoon.  DAIRYMEN MEET.  Directors   Meeting   Held  This Week at The  Royal City.  The first .directors meeting this  year of the;B. C. Dairymen's Association was held in Westminster on  Monday. Reeve W. 'SI.] Ladner,  and H. J. Kirkland of Ladner from  the Delta were in attendance.  A good deal of routine business  was transacted. There were numerous enquiries reported from all  parts of the province for '' stackers,''  tlie desire being general for more  animals of good breed, with which  to improve the local herds.  The auction sales of stock for  breeding purposes inaugurated a  couple of. years ago and carried on  with such success last year will be  continued.  A sale will be held at Ashcroft some  time in May. On this occasion  there will be two carloads of stock  from the least and one of local stock.  The .matter of having a similar sale  at New Westminster, in the fall  about exhibition week was decided  upon.  The secretary also reported having received a telegram from the  east stating that a carload of stock  for T. E. Ladner, of Ladner and A.  Lochore of Lytton, had been shipped  last Saturday, alid would probably  arrive in a couple of weeks. The  shipment consists entirely of dairy  heifers, all short horn grades of  milking strain.

WO II IS II  The Dredge to Come to  Ladner After The Chilliwack Work.  Robert   A!ex;:UKler of  Boundary  Bay died at Newminster yesterday.  Owing to the absolute necessity  of the sand bars at the landing at  Ladner, be cleared out, a numerously signed petition from the ratepayers was presented to Reeve W. H.  Ladner the first of this week, asking  him to call a public meeting to discuss dredging matters and to forward  resolutions to Mr. Morrison M. P.  asking that this matter be attended  to at once. The proposed meeting  was in fair way of progress, when a  communication from Mr. Morrison to  the Reeve was received stating that  the dredge would be sent to Ladner  as soon as the work at the Chilliwack landing was completed, and as  a result the matter was let drop.  The News is pleased to state that  at last something definite is known  as to when the dredge would be at  Ladner, and while the work here is  of the utmost importance it cannot  be delayed too long, and with the  completion of the Chilliwack work  it should hasten with all speed to  remove the obstructions which are  impeding traffic at Ladner—the  mast important shipping point on  the Fraser river. Since the first  issue of The News it has advocated  this work, and as a result awakened  the people up the river to the fact of  the importance of the ©elta district,  and also appreciates other papers—  though infringing on their "vested  rights"—taking up the matter, and  although having only a few readers  every little helps.  TO GO VIA LADNER.  The Great Northern Railway to Take Freight  to Vancouver.  Within <a months time the Great  Northern Railway will be operating  into Vancouver, tothe extent of landing carloads lots of freight there  unbroken,.  Freight will be brought from  Liverpool, opposite New Westminster, to False Creek, and from  there distributed.  "We started work Monday in  Fa'-c Creek," said Capt. S. F. Mac-  Kei;;;ie, when asked regarding the  matter. "We will build a slip near  our wharf there, and from Liverpool,  south of New Westminster, will  handle ears into Vancouver the same  as is donein the system to be inaugurated at the same time with Victoria. The barges will each handle  about fifteen cars at a trip, and they  will be run ashore at short sidetracks  on the •sorith side of False Creek  and from ©air wharf goods will be  distributed throughout the city."  The barges used are to be about  the same size as the Transfer No. 1,  which has been engaged for several  years for the C. P. R. in the Gulf  ferry business.  There will be but a few hours'  delay in the handling of freight directly into Vancouver. The trip  around from the Fraser is via Ladner and Point Gray, and with good  tides should easily be made in from  three to four hours.  In July a shipload of rails will  arrive from tbe Oid Country, for the  line from Liverpool to Ladner and  from Vancouver to Westminster.  Capt. MacKenzie says that the completion of the bridge across the  Fraser is now the only thing that  has to be waited for, and when that  is done the line will be extended into Vancouver as soon as it can be  constructed. The Ladner branch  will be completed this fall, and thereafter freight for Vancouver will come  into False Creek from Ladner.  Capt MacKenzie also said that his  wharf and the site of the new slip on  which construction work was commenced to-day, would be one of the  city terminals of the Great Northern  extension from Westminster.  Regarding the northern business,  it is reported that an arrangement is  being made for Seattle vessels to call  both on the northern and southern  trips, and that they would then carry  considerable of the freight for the  north brought over Great Northern  rails. This is, however, only surmise, and may have arisen from the  fact of the visit here to-day of Mr.  C.E.Peaboly, of the Alaska Steamship Company, and other officials  from Seattle who are now iu the  city.  LANGLEY MEETING  Urges Construction of the  Coast-Kootenay Railway at Once.  A meeting of the residents of  Langley Municipality was held last  Saturday evening at Otter hall with  J. Calbick as chairman, and D. Mc-  Vey as secretary. Several addresses were made and resolutions concerning the early construction of  the Coast-Kootenay railway were  passed :  " Whereas while apathy and neglect are apparent on every hand in  the Fraser valley, where much money has been expended in partial development, closer connection with  the markets by means of the Coast-  Kootenay railway will establish our  position, cause a large influx of settlers, progress and contentment will  reign, be it resolved,  '• That the government of British  Columbia be urged to at once either  take action to construct and operate  tbe first section of the proposed railway, as a government work or otherwise permit some other concern  to take up the work of construction,  under proper conditions of control  by the government of freight and  passenger rates. And be it further  resolved,  "This meeting is of the opinion  the V. V. & E. R. R- Co. would  do the work and operate the road  more to the advantage of the country than any other now in existence."  "That the residents of Otter, Al-  dergrove, etc., in mass meeting assembled view with alarm the proposal to heavily subsidize the construction of the Canada Northern,  while the Coast-Kootenay is neglected,  "And be it further resolved, that  when the matter is again brought  up in the house, the member for  Delta riding be directed to oppose  its passage."  Carried unanimously.  Copies of the resolutions were forwarded to Mr. Oilver, with the request it be laid before the house; also  that copies thereof be sent to the  Premier and the speaker for their  information.  The municipal councils of Langley  Surrey, Matsqui, Delta, Sumas and  Chilliwack will be communicated  with and requested to co-operate in  urging their immediate action in the  matter of railway construction.  Owing to the great demand for  potatoes in the south, British Columbia potatoes have been on the move  lately. .  New Shuffle Might Give  the People of B. C. a  Square Deal.  Interest during the last week has  centered almost entirely on the Redistribution Bill and the Canadian-  Northern Railway negotiations. As  regards the Redistribution Bill, satisfaction is expressed, although it is  general!}' conceded that the bill  would be fairer had it given one  member less to Victoria, Vancouver  and Cariboo.  The cost of the various surveys of  the Ladner-Westminster wagon road  are as follows: Survey made by  Cotton, $1,066; survey made by  Hill, $163.75; survey made by Kil-  leen, $116.  It is understood negotiations are  proceeding with a view to the construction of the Coast-Kootenay  railway, also the Kittemat and Haz-  elton road.  Indications are that pressure is  being brought to bear upon the government to subsidize Vancouver,  Yukon & Northern road.  The commission to investigate the  charges against the government  brought by Smith Curtis, is sitting.  Mr. Dunsmuir and Mr. Greenshields  have been in the witness box. Mr.  Justice Walkem is the commissioner.  A strong contrast is presented between the terms given to Mackenzie  & Mann, in regard to construction  in Nova Scotia, where the government loans Mackenzie'& Mann $13,-  500 per mile, at an interest of three  and one-half per cent, whilst the  British Columbia government proposes to give a cash subsidy amounting to $2,318,550 with a land subsidy of 10,570,000 acres. The agreement does not provide for government control of rates, or any concession of like nature in the interests  of the public.  A strip of land forty miles in  width along the line of railway is to  be reserved, and any deficiency is to  be made up in blocks of ten miles  square, from adjacent lands. Practically, this means giving the company all the valuable lands tributary to the railway.  On Wednesday Hon. Mr. Wells  laid upon the table an agreement  between the government- and the  Canadian Northern railway company for the construction of" a line  of railway from Yellowhead to Butte  Inlet and Victoria.  The Company is to be granted a  subsidy of 20,000 acres a mile, and  the following cash subsidy:  (A)—For the first 50 miles of railway, commencing at or near Butte  Inlet, the sum of $4,800 per mile.  (B)—From the end of the said  first 50 miles to the point nearest to  Ouesuel, the sum of $4,000 per mile.  (C)—From the said point nearest  to Qtiesnel to the eastern boundary  of British Columbia, at or near  Yellowhead Pass, the sum of $4,500  per mile.  The subsidy may be paid in inscribed stock of the province, bearing 3 per cent intrest per annum  The lands are to be exempted from  taxation until alieiyited, and the  railway for ten years after competition, after which the government  can either take 2 percent, of the  gross earnings or tax the line under  the railway act.  The provisions are practically the  same as those of the draft agreement  already published.  The contractors are to commence  construction within three months  after the Dominion has granted to  the railway aid satisfactory to the  company.  The contract is signed by Wm,  Mackenzie, as agent for the Edmon-.  ton, Yukon and Pacific Railway 6c*,  It is definitely stated that the proposed line on the island will be via  Alberni and the Cowiehan valley to,  Victoria. THE DELTA NEWS, SATURDAY, MARCH 29, r9o2.  THE  DELTA   NEWS  EY RIC. A. FRASER  Subscription Price, per year in advance, $1.00  SAT.URDAV, MARCH 29,  IQ02.  The Provincial Legislature of  British Columbia is iu many ways a  linique bod> . It has a premier, two  leaders of two different oppositions,  one of which voles with the government to prolong its life.  It has a "silent premier" under  the tutelage of one of the leaders of  the opposition. It dismissed a lieutenant governor. It sends ministers  to the people to be elected 011 a railway or a bridge scheme. It is at  present appointing a royal commission to enquire into serious charges  made against the premier by a mem-  ber of the opposition. It wants  railways built throughout the province. It seeks to bring capital to  the province by having a millionaire premier at the head of affairs.  Yet this body does not think it  jyortli»hile to have any authentic  records of these passing events to  hand down to future generations of  statesmen of this fair province of  purs. The only records are those  found on file in the newspaper cilices and these are sometimes often a  HIGHWAY TRAFFIC j  An   Act   to   Amend   the  Highway Traffic Regulation Act.  The following are*- the amendments to the act regulating highways, which .Mr. Oliver, member  for Delta has brought forward:  1. This Act may be cited as the  '.'Highway Traffic Regultion Act  Amendment Act, 1902."  2. Section 8 of  the "Highway  Traffic Regulation Act," beingcha] -  ter 92 of the Revised Statues, 1897,'  is hereby repealed, and the following-  substituted therefor:  "8. It shall he unlawful for any  wagon or other vehicle carrying a  load in excess of that mentioned, in  the Schedule hereunto annexed to  be drawn or driven 011 any of the  public highways of that portion of  the Province of British Columbia  situate west of the Cascade Range  of mountains."  3. Saction 9 of the said Act is  hereby repealed, and the following  substituted therefor:  "9 It shall be sufficient prima  facie evidence that any waggon or  vehicle has, contrary to the provisions of this Act, carried a load in  excess of that mentioned in the  Schedule to this Act annexed, for  0 state  upon  little  bias.    Vi   a   proper Hansard  were a part of the legislature of the  province, no need then for the members to be making complaints about  the scurrilous (?) editorial articles  appearing occasionally. Some of  the happenings of the present session would  read like fiction to the  future generations of British Columbia.  /The dredge, King Kdward, will  pome to Ladner to work on the Lars  at the steamboat landings as soon as  she completes the work at the landing near Chilliwack. This is a disappointment to the Delta people but  it is impossible for the dredge to  work at a half-dozen places at once,  and the work up above is also badly  needed. Mr. Morrison is doing his  utmost to have the work at different  points along the river attended to  and information received from him  this week states that the work at  Ladner will be done as soon as  possible.  any credible witness  oath that to the best of }iis judgment  and opinion the wagon or vehicle  in question, at the tinie-cf.the alleged  infraction of this Act, carried a load  in excess of that mentioned in the  Schedule hereunto annexed, and  upon such evidence Lei, g given the  onus shall le cast upon the party  charged Of'disprqving that the load  exceeded that mentioned iu the  Schedule hereunto annexed, and  i.he said Schedule shall form part oi  this Act.

Pair Dealing and Prices an Cliean  as the Cheapest,   a Call Solicited, ™ THE DELTA NEWS, SATURDAY, MARCH 29, 1902.  A. MORRISON, M. P.  ■ ■  :>  ■■  ■  '  Makes a Strong Speech in  the House of Commons  Last Thursday.  In the debate on the budget Thursday last Aulay Morrison, New Westminster, replied to Mr. Blain. Mr.  Morrison said that whatever was  the policy of any government,  whether protection or free trade, it  was necessary to apply business  principles to it. The present government did apply business principles in transacting the affairs of  the government. The condition of  the people to a great extent reflected  the condition of the country. The  people of Canada to-day were prosperous and have been so since 1896.  Reference to the budget each year  would show that there was a surplus  :' .each year. That would be a good  test in the business condition and  the same test aught to be applied to  the   government.      This   was   an  ■ evidence of'prosperity and a careful  handling of the affairs of the country.  The value of fisheries to-day exceeds  $24,000,000; the value of mines  over $69,000,000; lumber over  $89,000,000; and farming, etc.,  over $600,000,000.    All   this was  ■ hjggly satisfUct4||y.  Having said this, he took up mat-  ; ters affecting '{British Columbia.  ' There were some articles of the tariff  which required readjustment. There  were duties on preserves, jellies and  jams, about one hundred per cent.  Ton the value of California goods .of  ithe same quality. Then in the lumber trade there was a hardship in  •British Columbia. There was a  duty on lumber to'the United States  of $2 per thousand, yet mills on the  Amercian side pf the boun/dry could  supply b<tfh fhe Ganarl;aji and  American marj^et with rough him.  ber free. The reason why this could  not be remedied was because Manitoba and the Northwest members  opposed it. They wanted in Manitoba free lumber no majtter where it  came from. His own ppinion was  that lumber would not be any higher if a duty was placed on it. Manitoba and the Northwest did not  appreciate the British Columbia  industry. The tariff should be framed for Canada. He said that, yet  he was not a protectionist.  Mr. Morrison then took up'the  question of lead, showing how the  present tariff was framed in such a  flray as to almost kjll the industry in  British Columbia. He did hope that  the eccentricity in the tariff regard?  ing lead could be remedied. Another humiliation to Canada was  that the American steel trust ignored the British Columbia producer..  These were unsatisfactory features  of the tariff, but apart, this country  as a whole, was prosperous. He  next took up the Chinese and Japanese immigration, and asked the  government to take immediate steps  to carry out the findings of both reports. Mr. Morrison said that Britr  ish Columbia paid three times as  much per head tariff charge as the  remainder of the pe.ople of Canada,  and to thjs ought to be added heavy  transportation.  • ' m  9  9  9  ®  «  7 Refitted throughout with New Horses, New Buggies £  • and Hacks.
