Array Vol. 2. No. 16.  LADNER, B C, SATURDAY,   JUNE 6, 1903.  $1.00 a year  Sanitary Matters Discussed and General Business Transacted by the  Municipal Council.  mm        •*—  A. special meeting of the Delta  Corporation was held on Tuesday  for general business, owing to there  being no quorum on Saturday.  Present the Reeve, Councillors  Burr, T. Ladner, Embree, Arthur  .and McCallan.  The minutes of the previous regular and special meetings were read  (and confirmed.  The Reeve explained that he had  palled the meeting owing to a telegram from their solicitors stating  that Judge Martin could not hear  their case against Dr. Wilson until  Thursday.  Joseph Shannon wrote a lengthy  communication in connection with  the deviation of si?_ miles of the  Ladner-Chilliwack railway at Port  Kells. He had interviewed the  Mayor of Victoria and others, who  feared they were being side-tracked.  He considered the matter important  as it would ultimately become the  main track to Kootenay and should  be an unbroken line from Port Guichon. If it terminates at Port  Kells Vancouver would get the  bulk oi the trade.  The following resolution from  the Surrey Municipal Ccuncil referring to the matter was also read,  this Council being asked to endorse  it:  "Moved by Councillor Wickersham, seconded by Councillor  Johnston, that the clerk be instructed to write to the Mayor and  City Council of Victoria, calling  their attention to the fact that  the Ladner-Chilliwack railroad is  now completed to Cloverdale. From  present indications it would appaar  that the company now contemplated  starting tlie eastern extension from  Port Kells, several miles north of  Cloferdale, which would virtually  side-track Victoria, and request  them to use their utmost endeavor  to have the extension continued  east from Cloverdale."    Carried.  Councillor Ladner did not consider Victoria would be side-tracked  and did not see why they should  pull for Victoria more than Vancouver.  Councillor Burr concurred.  Councillor Embree pointed out  that by going to Port Kells the  company divided the distance  equally between Victoria and Vnn-  couver.  Councillor McCallan remarked  that an alteration of the line from  Cloverdale had already been surveyed by which the railway would  ultimately run direct from Oliver's  to South Westminster. Tbe company had announced that they  Wanted a right of way free from  Port Kells to Abbottsford, when  they would build right through to  the Kootenay, but they were dead  ofl repeating the purchasing plan  as they had done ia the DeUa.  It was decided not to endorse  the resolution and the communications were received and filed.  Harry Burr wrote that the original survey of lot 147 line was abput  14 feet out and asked that the  ground be placed in its original  condition so that he could fence  and protect his crops. Received  and filed.  Councillor Burr also reported  that the amount of land involved  in Dr, Wilson's claim on the Dove  road was only i-26oth part of an  acre.    Received and filed.  The' question of taking over the  River road was deferred till next  meeting.  It was decided after considerable  discussion that the Council remove  the thistles and other noxious  weeds from the roads and dykes  before the ist of July.  J. F. Stainton applied in person  for some loads of gravel to level the  road at his scales.    Granted.  W. Goudy applied in person for  repairs of about 100 yards on the  road leading from the Benson to  the Goudy roads.    Granted.  Councillor Burr said he had  called for returns of all monies  spent in the various roads but they  were not forthcoming.  The Reeve suggested that Councillors should inspect all the roads  111 the municipality when they  would understand what was required.  Councillor Arthur considered if  $r ,500 was appropriated to a ward  the full amount should be expended.  Councillor Ladner referred to  sanitary matters aboat which there  had been many complaints.' The  slaughter houses, pig pens and  ditches required attention. He  would be about himself (but thought  some one should see to the matter.  The Reeve reminded the Council  of Dr. Fagan's warning last year,  and his threat that if not complied  with he would take the necessary  steps as provincial health officer.  The Reeve and Councillor Arthur were instructed to confer with  their health officer, Dr. King, on  sanitary matters generally.  Councillor Burr said something  must be done with regard to cleaning oijt the ditches which were  rotten.  Councillor Ladner favored a  frontal tax, but it was thought that  the Council had no power to act.  Councillor Ladner applied on behalf of the Agricultural Society for  tbe usual appropriation. Last  year's exhibition had been a great  success and it was the directors' intention to erect sheds, fencing and  generally improve the grounds.  He asked for $400 for prizes and  sheds. Councillor McCallan seconded.  Councillor Burr opposed the  grant as he had always done. It  was not a public park and they  only had a right on the ground one  day in the year. He was also opposed to the band grant as they  only heard the music when the  band went to Steveston. He w6uld  rather see a subscription list for  tret planting on the ground when  he would gladly give $5, although  he never went there.  Councillor Arthur thought $200  enough and moved accordingly.  They should only give the same  amount as the government. He  favored tree planting and access to  the grounds at any time by the women and children and picnic parties, who were all locked out,  The Reeve reminded Councillor  Burr that they were authorised by  the municipal act to subsidise agricultural societies. He was how*  ever opposed to the erection of more  buildings, The one already built  bad cost $400 and was only used  for one day. There were sufficient  pens and it was only throwing  money away. It would be folly in  the extreme.   They had better im  prove their roads.    H; would give  $10 towards a subscription for tree  planting.  '  Coumillor Embree seconded th?  amendment.  Councillor Ladner iu reply stater!  that the public had a right to enter  the grounds at anytime and the  gates had   not   been   locked   this  DELTA   VS.    WIi.SON.  Judge   Martin   Dacides   that Tax  Cannot be Collected. Bamages  May be Arbitrated.  The case of Delta municipality  vs. Dr. Wilson came up before Justice Martin at Westminster yesterday.    On the meeting of the eouit  year. Games, sports and picnic*couaSel foa both 8ides aTgued lbe  could be held at any time by apply-1 p()ints of the case  ing for permission. Provision had  been made in the contract with the  lessee. The show caused competition, created energy and pi evented  them becoming fossilized. The  society intended to plant trees, but  they must have some one to take  care of the grounds otherwise it  would simply become a commonage.  Councillor McCallan said the  show brought new blood to the district, which would otherwise become dormant.  The amendment was curried, the  motion only being supported by the  mover and seconder.  The council then struck the rate  for the year at 7 mills on the dol  lar, the same as last y;ar.  The rules of order were suspend  powers over the Westminster bridge  and their large   power   station   at  Coquitlam   Lake   will    be    ready  shortly when they will have considerable   surplus   power    on    hand,  which could be utilized for this extension.

On the motion of Councillor Arthur it was decided that the collecting be given to the clerk as usual,  at 10 per cent, remuneration.  The Reeve reported that he had  shown round the tramway representatives as instructed and that  the English representative had expressed himself yery much pleased  with the prospect.  The following accounts were  passed for payment: Alexander,  hauling lumber, $8.25; M Smith,  $8.75; Sam Kee, work, $8; R H  Gillespie, contract, $146.25; E B  Noble, repairing track at gravel  pit, $44.07: E B Noble, balance of  contract, $2,204.20; T Lasseler,  $37.50; Delta News, advertising  and printing, $20.75; Sing, laboi,  $3.30; Tom, labor, 62 cents; Geo  Ormiston, salary, $60; J Jordan,  constable, $i8.2g; J Jordau, livery,  $55.50; Sing, labor, $15; Jim,  labor, $12.

That is the  cry in Ladner, and is  likely to   be  Until the people v ake up and   put  some Jife into their parochial leaders.    It ought to be the other way  about.    Even if the Delta municipality has not the power or  means  bf undertaking experimental work  as  a corporation the   Councillors  are the representatives of the rate-  payers and as such should be   the  leading citizens of any movement  for the improvement or betterment  of the people they have the   honor  I •   . .'IV   I  ©f representing.  To give the Reeve  bis due, he has   time   and   again  brought the matter forward only to  receive the cold shoulder from   his  confreres.      Some   time   back   he  communicated with a well borer for  the   Richmond   municipality   and  again with the manager ofthe Government drill at Ashcroft.    In  the  latter instance a conference, it will  be remembered, was arranged with  the residents of Steveston, but  the  latter failed  to   come   up   to   the  scratch.    Still   later   the   Council  was approached   by the   manufacturers   of    boring    machinery   at  Idaho, who offered to sell them   a  plans     at     a     big       reduction  "owing to   the    distance.       This  ww  thrown   out     because    the  machinery might require mending.  Again the Council was   placed   in  jouch with another American firm,  and the fate of that correspondence  is still fresh iu the  memory of   our  readers.     Now   the   Council   has  taken   no   ijsteps   to   obtain   data  from other municipalities, and that  at least   they might   easily accomplish in   their corporate   capacity,  they would then have some definite  Information to lay before a   public  meeting.    It has already been demonstrated  that water  can   be   obtained at  a   reasonable   depth   in  different parts of the  Delta.    The  Creamery Co., the Imperial   Farm  and the B. C. Investment Co. have  all obtained good supplies of fresh  water.  In any case tbe   municipality is  justified in approaching   the   Government for assistance lor the loan  of a drill in this important matter,  through the member for the district.  In order to avoid   petty jealousies,  which have no doubt influenced tbe  several  suggestions, the   Agricultural Society should also   be   approached and the   show   grounds  placed at the disposal  of  the  experimentalist.   }f this proposition  is taken up it should  meet with  gtneral   approval and   our   homes  will soon  be  protected  from  the  scourges    of     amine    and    disease,  which  arise   from  deficient  quantity or inferior quality of  the  water supply.   The   terrors  of a  conflagration will also be lessened.  The Redistribution Act comes  into force wheu the present Legislative Assembly is dissolved, and  new lists must then be compiled in  each electoral district. The first  Court of Revision must be held  within three months from the dissolution.  TRANSPORT   TO   VICTORIA.  "A man living on a farm near  here came in a short time ago completely doubled up with rheumatism. I handed him a bottle of  Chamberlain's Pain Bulm and told  him to use it freely and if not satisfied after using it he need no*: pay a  cent for it " says C P Rayder, oi  Pattens Mills, N.Y. ''A few days  later he walked into the store as  straight as a string and handed me  a dollar saying, 'give me another  bottle of Chamberlain's Pain Balm.  I want it in the house all the time  for it cured me.' " For sale by F  J MacKenzie  CHURCH   NOTICES  The Victoria Chamber of Com-  ratrce has compiled a report of the  transportation facilities of British  Columbia and the Northwest to  the Capital. It is based on the replies which have been received, but  it is somewhat remarkable that  neither ILadner or Port Guichon  figure in the report. The questions  asked were (a) State chief exports  from your locality, (b) Have you  any suggestions for an improved  service between your point and  Victoria? (c) Have you any additional information?  The following are some of the  replies:  Gibson's Landing — (a) Farm  produce, stock and lumber, [b] I  do not think that a direct steamer  service to Ladner would pay.  Elgin, B. C —[a] Farm produce  [exports about 1,000 tons oats and  about 1,000 tons of hay annually.]  [b] The present Great Northern  Railway is going to be of great benefit to this locality, and if rates are  reasonable we will be able to trade  with Victoria.

In the cattle section  it wa; decided to erase the stipulation that "all except the  bull   may  1 ■ \    '  be bred by the exhibitor" as being  superfluous. In horses, trotters  are classed as "standard" simply.  The irst prizes in this sectit.n have  been raised to $20 and no seccr.d or  third will be offered in any of the  horse classes.

The meeting adjourned till 8:90  j>. m. on Friday^  jJP.HN' OLIVER, M P P  A noteworthy development ofthe  situation, writes the Times, is the  sudden advent into the arena of a  totally new force in the person of  John Oliver, of Delta. All recognize that his recent servbe to the  province has been of such a marked  character as to make of him a factor  to be represented with a future ad •  ministration. Many insist that as  tne man who almost single-handed  carried the investigation which  overwhelmed the government he  should be given the task of reorganizing the affairs of the province  and cleansing departments. His  sterling integrity would make him  a strong figure in the fight acceptable to almost all cla.sses of Liberals.  He has also developed during the  last year remarkably in his grasp  of public questions aad of procedure,  and on the stump he is wondefully  effective, as Mr Eberts learned to  his sorrow iu North Victoria.

MAIL   MATTERS  Residents of the Lower Mainland says the Colonist.are about to  petition the postal authorities to  arrange for the transmission of  mails daily by way of the Victoria Terminal Railway & Ferry  Co. As the service is at present, it  takes residents at Aldergrove for  instance, the better part of a week  to get a letter to Victoria and an  answer, by way of Vancouver; and  now that excellent daily communication is furnished by the Sidney  route, they consider it inconceivable  why the postal department has not  made arrangement for increased  postal facilities.  The question is to come before  the next meeting of the Victoria  Chamber of Comme.roe, but the  initial movement is exjpected from  the Delta side.  Mrs. Kidd, wife of T. Kidd, M.  P.

Bain of the Canners  -Association, received word on Mon-  <day night that the bulk of nets,  ietc, stolen from the Canadian Pacific Canstery ou Empire Day, had  been recovered and were on their  way back to Steveston. The Fraser  River Canneries Association offered  ■$ioo reward for their recovery*  The case was worked up, and >on  Thursday last Officers Campbell  and Jordan qui-try slipped  out of town and by Saturday they had recovered the  boat, nine nets and some of the  lines. Ti'e 'thieves w«!re traced  from Steveston to Point Roberts  and Blaine, Wash., and the nets.,  were finally located in Birch Bay,  about eight miles south of Blaine.  As the nets, etc., were worth over  $1,000 the cannery peopte are very  pleased at the recovery of the  property.  Unpiecedent floods are raging in  Central and Eastern Kansas; Northwestern Missouri, Eastern Nebraska and southwestern Iowa, the result of ten days of almost  continuous downpour. The gen-;  eral situation is considered1  most grave, with no immediate relief in sight. Marry lives have been  lost, and it is estimated that no less  than 25,000 persons have been  driven from their homes, many of  which were washed away. The  property loss will run well up into  the millions of dollars.  On Sunday evening Dr. King  was called to attend a Chinaman  named Shing who had been taken  suddenly ill. The man, who was  about 30 years of a *e, expired a  few minutes after the doctor's arrival from heart failure.

GREATLY  ALARMED  ly a Persistent Cough, but Permanently Cured by Chamberlain's  Cough Remedy.  H. P. Burbage, a student at law,  in GreeHville, S.C.had been troubled for four or five years with a continuous cough which he says  "greatly alarmed me, causing me  to fear that I was in the first stage  of consumption." Mr. Burbage,  having seen Chamberlain's Cough  Remedy advertised, concluded to  try It. Now read what he says of  it: "I soon felt a remarkable  change and after using two bottles  of the twenty-five cent size, was  permanently cured." Sold by F.  J. MacKenzie.
