They  w«re defeated in what have been  the greatest exhibitions of lacrosse,  ever seen, by. the Shamrocks. The  Shamrocks may visit Westminster  in the fall and if they bring the cup,  the local sports are determined that  it shall stop in British Columbia.  The school board have decided to  engage an instructor to drill the  boys of the Central school in military movements. The drilling is  •expected to be extended to the West  End and Sapperton schools.  As the result of an unfortunate  sboo'ting accident on Monday evening, two Indian children are dead  and a little girl is in the hospital  seriously wounded and an old squaw  is going around showing a  scar on the forehead. A young  "Indian boy, Johnny Douglas, had  got possession of a Winchester rifle  and while handling it before one of  Jhe tents near the Albert Crescent,  the rifle went off aud the ball grazing the squaw, passed through the  head of young boy aged 6, then on  its path of destruction it blew off the  top of the skull of a girl aged 10,  who expired half an hour later. The  ballthen entered the shoulder of  another girl aged 8, and passed  near her lungs.  'The coroners jury brought in a  verdict of accidental death but censured the father of the boy who did  the shooting for leaving a loaded  rifle where a boy could get hold of  it. By order of the coroner the  father was arrested and charged  with being drunk, and the arrest  was also made of a chinaman charged with supplying the same. They  will be given a hearing on Monday.  Wm. Alexander was the successful tenderer from the municipal  council, to supply 300 cords of brush  and 500 cubic yards of rock to be  used for protection works on the  Gulf dyke.  P. Clark returned from Westminster, Tuesday, where lie left Mrs,  Clark in the Royal Columbian hospital, and reports favorable pi ogress  ju her illness-.  DELTA'S TRADE.  "Better late than never" is a  good old adage, and the people of  Westminster seem to be acting upon  its advice. The following is a notice to merchants and citizens generally of that town:  "You are invited to attend a  meeting at the Board of Trade  Rooms, tomorrow, Friday, at 8 p.m.  for the purpose of dealing with questions affecting trade, particularly  the down river steamboat service.  If you are alive be present, if  dead stay away."  Since the opening up of the Lulu  Island railway the Royal City people have become anxious for the  trade ofthe Delta. It was pointed  out to them some time ago that this  new means of communication with  the Terminal City would probably  affect trade but no notice was taken  of it at the time. Now a better  boat service is asked.  It makes no difference to the people of the Delta where they ship  their products. Either of the two  cities mentioned can secure part  or all so long as cheap facilities are  secured for conveying to and froc.  the market. New Westminster will  have less trouble in retaining the  trade, than Vancouver! in attracting  it there, as people have been aci us-  tomed to patronizing the Royal  City. We have tbe products in the  Delta to sell and now that a choice  is offered proper trade relationships  must be established. Now New  Westminster, don't let the other fellow steal " the goose that lays the  golden egg."  Lulu Island Railway.  The Lulu Island & Vaneou'. er  railway was opened on Tuesday of  this week, aud will be permanently  opened for traffic about Wednesday next.  A time schedule is now in course  of preparation and that aud other  details will have been perfected by  the time mentioned. At present it  is the intention to run four trains  daily between Vancouver and Steveston, two in the morning and two  in the afternoon. More trains v. ill  be placed in service as businesp war  ranis. Upon tbe opening of th  road the distance of 17.16 milea  will be covered in on? hinr :• 1  ing slop-and the time will be ill  down as the roadbed sel lea to ]>■ r-  mit faster speed.  All trains will depart from the I  P, R. depot. T! e firsl stc* will b  made at the corner of Hastings and  Carrall streets, the next at Granville street bridge, and then will  follow in succession the stations  named, Magee, Eburne, Canibie,  Brighouse, Lulu and Steveston.  Buildings have been erected at all  outside stopping points.  A ferry lervice .»il    il.  tween'Ladner  and  Steveston  connecting with the trains in the morning and evening giving the  people]  of Ladner an opportunity of  advantage of this route.  "Snakes in Paradise."  The people of Ladner had the rare  opportunity this week of listening  to one of the best lecturers on the  continent, and we are pleased to  note that a crowded house took advantage of the occasion. To hear  Dr. Roland Grant's lecture "Snakes  in Paradise" is without exception  the best and most instructive entertainment given to a Ladner audience  for many a long day. One may hear  parts of it rehearsed many times  over by those who were present,  and it is surprising how much ofthe  lecture the audience carried away.  Although the lecturer spoke for two  hours, all felt that the time had been  only too short. If the hearers had  been consulted another two hours  would quite wiliinfly have been  given 111 listening to the worthy  gentleman. But we trust at some  future date he may favor Ladner  again with another of bis interesting  lectures.  Dr. Grant is capable of holding  any audience fed whatever length of  time he may desire. He is not long  upon the platform until he has the interested attention of all, mindful lest  some good thing may escape notice.  To hear him is to admire his ability  to picture scenes from life. So natural are they that one readily recognizes that it is tbe stroke of a master  in tbe art ol word painting. The  mind voluntarly concentrates all  thought upoii the speaker and his  subject, and. la., not disappointed.  Few men havesuih power over their  audience.  The net proceeds, $50, goes to the  Baptist church.  LOCAL .NEWS.  W. H. Ladner is offering for sale  some choice slock See notice in  this issue.  11. J.

The difficulty with the fishermen  catching spring salmon on the  Fraser River has been settled, and  the men will hereafter receive four  cents per pound for fish  as  before.  The Vancouver Fishermen's  Union met on Saturday, and declared for 15 cents for the season.  These are the two principal items  of news in connection with the fishery situation, and further action on  either side will not be taken for a  few days at least.  A meeting of the Vancouver Fishermen's Union was held last Saturday. The entire plan and proposal  for a sliding scale was considered,  and the opinion was freely expressed that in making its original suggestion the packer's association had  intended to open negotiations and  throw out a feeler that might result  in getting at a good price, satisfactory to both parties, in the end. With  this in view, the meeting considered  that negotiations might very well  be resumed. A motion was passed,  therefore, favoring 15 cents per fish  for the season, and it was decided  that this recommendation should be  sent on to the Grand Lodge, so that  negotiations might be reopened.  The above price was for sockeyes  but it was regarding spring salmon  that a meeting was held in the Royal City on Saturday, where the fishermen were on strike last week, on  the decrease in price from four to  three cents per pound. A delegation  of the fishermen visited the buyers  of salmon and were courteously received. Figures were adduced to the  shippers, showing that they had  been buying red salmon at a  loss, caused by the difficulty of eastern sale, and the plentiful supply  caught in eastern waters. The shippers, however, declared in order to  keep the goodwill of the fishermen  they would take the risk of continuing the price of red spring salmon  at four cents per pound. Notice of  this amicable settlement were sent  out at once, and the same evening  all the nets were out again.  No discussion occurred at Westminster regarding prices to prevail  for tbe season.  it eoupK  around  . .'- - is now able  ■ nn 1 - utches.

DROWNED II |i  Eugene Howard Slippe.d  Off   Benson's   Wharf  and Drowned.  "Little Eugene is drowned" was  the word passed around town on  Thursday evening. No one appeared to know anything about how it  happened or when it was; but meanwhile a crowd was gathering at Benson's wharf, the scene of the sad  accident.  It appears that some children and  little Eugene Howard were playing  on Benson's wharf. Eugene and  young Russell McClellau were giving an exhibition of swimming on  the slip when the former probably  went too close to the end where it  was slippery and fell into the water,  thus causing his death. Mr. Himberger, step-father of the boy, who  was near by heard the splash, and  not being able to account for it investigated and saw a hand appear  above the water and saw the boy's  cap. No sooner did he discover  this than every available means were  used to rescue the lad, but it was  too late as he did not come to the  surface again. After diligent search  assisted by William Robinson who  had by this time arrived, the boy's  body was found after some twenty  minutes, some distance below where  he is supposed to have fallen in.  Medical aid was secured but  it was without avail, as  the boy had been too long under  water.  Eugene Howard was the son pf  Mrs. Himberger, aud was about  seven years of age. The parents  are grief-stricken, as this is the  second time death has visited the  household within a very short time.  The funeral takes place this afternoon at 4 o'clock.  Dominion Day.  Dominion Day was duly celebrated in Ladner, by nearly all attend-  the festivities in the surrounding  country. Quite a number took advantage ofthe excursion to Vancouver via Steveston. The steamer  Transfer leaving Ladner about eight  o'clock connecting with the Lulu  Island railway at Steveston. Four  coachloads of passengers were on the  train when she steamed out of town  it taking one and a half hours to  make the trip into Vancouver. The  Steveston end of the road is not in  the best of condition as yet, owing  to being built only a few days ago.  The Vancouver end is first class  and the road bed is as good as can  bejfound in the province. The train  arriving in Vancouver most of the  passengers got off at the tramway office, Hastings street. The  arrival was a very quiet affair, no  demonstration ofthe opening up of  this new railway, although bringing  one of the best farming countries  within touch ofthe Terminal City,  Ladner people returned home in  the evening about ten o'clock, being  well pleased with the day's outing,  A British Subject.

In all probability it will  bje^the best in the history ofthe district! Since, last autumn a number  of thoroughbred horses and cattle  have.been imported which are sure  prize winners no matter where  ihown. These together with the  former collection ought certainly to  make a good showing. Taking a  trip, through the farms one sees a  good many excellent foals and calves of this years' raising which are  up to the standard and are doing  "well Thus one should judge the  farm stock will pf itself make a fair  worth seeing. There are also other  products of the farm which, though  itoo numerous £o mention, go to  njake up a fine sample of what can  'tie produced on the Delta.

JULY 5, J**  ijffliiSWfc!^$pi^^  tbeCowtbat  Paps Best  i  The question as to which is the  most profitable cow is one that cannot be decided in any arbitrary manner.  There are so many circumstances and contingencies to be taken into consideration, that, after all  is said and written on the subject,  each man must decide the question  largely on his own judgment.   He  will find it necessary to consider the  nature of his farm; the suitability of  hjg buildings and implements; the  cost of hired help if such is required  the proximity of a good market for  his   finished products,   and many  other details. The comparative advantages of Deef-growing and dairying Would   probably  be  the   first  point considered by a farmer who  was just about to make a start in  cattle-raising. Men who have had  long experience in either of these  lines are not likely to change to tbe  other   line,  involving as it does,  changes in tarm routine, in variety  and management of crops, in buildings and equipments,   without   a  ■good deal of deliberation. That beef  production can be carried on with a  .'Smaller expenditure for labor and  Utensils is perhaps true, and it certainly does not require the constant  attention to business that dairying  entails.  Next comes the question of breed  It will, I think, be generally conceded by fair-minded men that there  is no "best" breed. Everything depends on circumstances. A breed  that proves highly satisfactory in  one district may be found entirely  ansuited to different environments.  Only four breeds of beef cattle, viz.,  Shorthorns, Herefords, Galloways,  and Aberdeen-Angus, have attained  popularity in Canada, and only the  first mentioned can be said to be  generally distributed. Tbe others  may equal the Shorthorns, lor beef  production, and even surpass them  under certain conditions, but the  superior milking qualities of the  Shorthorns, and particularly of the  grades, have given them :an unequalled popularity among our farmers. Where feed is plentiful, and the  country not too high or broken,  they are likely to prove satisfactory-  beefers, and in addition will produce  • fair amount of milk. The ease with  which bulls of this breed can be  procured for grading purposes is  also an argument in its favor. Breed"  ers of the other sorts are comparatively few, and the opportunity for  choice is small, when one desires to  •elect a bull. In the colder parts of  Canada, and on the bare pastures of  the mountainous districts, the Galloways and West Highlanders should,  prove serviceable on account of their  hardiness and activity.  Among the dairy breeds, the  Ayrshires, Holsteins, Jerseys, Guernseys and French Canadians are all  held in considerable esteem. The  latter have been almost unknown  outside the province of Quebec un-  ©  *  Hole! Colonial  J. E.

Under adverse circumstances,  such scanty pastures, lack of proper  winter feed and care, etc., they will  probably yield a greater percentage  of profit than those breeds which  have for generations been accustomed to good food and care. The  Guernseys, although highly thought  of in the United States, have never  gained sufficient foothold in Canada  to enable our farmers to judge their  sutability for this country. Both  they, and their close relatives, the  Jerseys, are especially adapted for  ths production, of fancy butter or  cream for a high priced city trade,  and the majority of Canadian herds  of these two breeds, are, I think,  used for this purpose.  Thn Ayrshires and Holsteins  seem to be gaining in popularity  among the general dairy fanners  who support the cheese factories  and creameries, and with the dairy  Shorthorns are likely to do better  on the level lands, with flush pastures and plenty of winter food,  while the Ayrshires should, I think,  find more favor on rolling 01 hilly  lands, because of their great activity.  But, while certain well defined  differences may characterize the  various breeds, yet it may be well to  remember that there is much greater difference between individual animals of the same breed than between  the different breeds. A good cow  is a good cow no matter what her  breed may be. Therefore let each  man select the breed that he he considers best suited to his conditions,  and stick to it. Let him buy, or  breed too, the best available bulls of  that breed, and continue to grade  up his herd to a higher degree ot  excellence year by year. The practice followed by some farmers of using bulls first of one breed and then  another, is fatal to all plans of  building up a handsome uniform  and profitable herd of grade cows,  and that is just what most farmers  require. The aveage man does not  need pure bred females; in fact, will  do better with poor grades. The  breeders of pure bred stock are, like  the poet, born, not made. He u.ast  Inherit a love for animals and an  aptitude for handling them, otherwise his investm»n wil prove un,  profitable, and all his e or. . disappointment. ■ -,,  Clarington Hotel  J...WISE, Proprietor.
