Aid. VauStone asked if this right of  way condition had been imposed  before, aud the Mayor replied that  he thought not„ though it bad  been mentioned to the late Minister  of Works.

The   Mayor   also  Government stating that the Council was prepared to forward $ 1,000  when road work was started. He  believed the Board of Trade bad  sent a similar letter.

The King's official birthday was  celebrated yesterday in Ladner by  sports and races held in the Agricultural Society's ground under the,  auspices of the Ladner Driving  Park Association.  The steamer Transfer brought  about fifty excursiouist from New  Westminster, but owing to the  weather the Victorian was unable  to arrive in time. Horses were entered from various places.  The committee responsible were  L Gifford, W A Kirkland, J F  Qreen, R Moffit, W S Livingstone,  and C F Green secretary.  It commenced to rain shortly  after one o'clock and the cloudy  sky before hand no doubt prevented  many from being present from tht,  country. Nevertheless many vehicles with contented occupants were  present and enjoyed a good days  sport.  J. McNeill cvf Victoria was specially engaged as judge and starter,  but did not arrive and W C Marshall however voluntered and made  an efficient substitute.  Credit is due to the committe for  the condition of the track, the erection of the bleacher and geueral at-  tion to visitors which will no doubt  be appreciated at future meetings.  A grand stand has been erected  by the Driving Park Association,  which becomes the property of the  Agricultural Society, and has been  built with the latter's approval. It  stands stven feet off the ground st  that booths can be placed underneath. The back rises eleven feet  and it is fifty feet long and twenty  feet wide, allowing a three foot  passage along the front. There are  nine seats. At present it is what is  known as a "bleacher," but next  year the association intend to place  a roof over it if funds permit. The  proceeds of yesterday's meet go towards the purchase of material and  the society takes over any remaining liability.  Owing to the rain the baseball  and football matches had to be  postponed.

So far only four  hundred licenses have been granted  to fishernmen from the New West*  minster office during the present  year, including the licenses fcr  spring salmon. This is less than  the number usually issued at this  season. Sockeyes are commencing  to run in large numbers on the  Skeena, and spring salmon art  fairly plentiful, according to newt  received from the northern coast.  The prospects for the season there  are considered to be excellent.  The salmon fishing season  cot  mences on July ist.  Councilor T. E. Ladner and wife  are expected back from California  today.

A brigade of  seamen and marines with battery  and field guns landed from the  warships and marched to Macaulay  Plains, where the usual salute and  "march past" took place at noon.  F. C. Gamble, public works en»  gineer, is satisfied with the protection given to property by tho  dykes, and says confidence is being  established in them. The smell  break made this year will be easily  repaired and but little loss will result from it. The greatest enemy  they have to contend with is tho  muskrat. Their burrowing ia «  difficult thing to guard against, a»  it cannot be easily detected.  K:  ■ ;,,■*__ or..  ■__■  ■ssksakssi  -____i u.  THE DELTA NEWS.

In Canada the intemperance of the-  temperance people closes the hotels  he whole day and the houses are  in many places down east open as  usual to|'babitues. The Vancouver  licensing hoard is taking up a new-  hut sensible stand, on the lines of  the Australian law. which classines  the hotels I'ccordiiig to accommodation. It has been decided to  notify certain houses that improvements must be made before renewals  will be granted. Not only ought  the number of rooms to be fixed, but  also their size, allowing so many-  cubic feet of air room for each person, according to the recommendation of the health officer. A point  frequently neglected is the stabling  and provender for horses, especially  in roadside inns. Sanitary matters  should be rigidly examined. Urban  and rural licenses are not on all  fours, but in both the needs of  travellers should be the first consideration, and the saloon trade a  secondary matter. ■    ■  Jmkthodist.  ] ^Services next Lord's Day at 3 p.m  "Sabbath School  at 2 p m   every  Sunday.

The minutes of the last annual  meeting were read  and confirmed.  The auditor's report was read as  follows: "Ladner, 18th June, I  hate examined the vouchers for  this year and find them to be corrects Your receipts were $332.05  and your expenditure $299.45, leaving you a cash balance of $32.60.

He held  four similar «ffices and in each case  statements were only called fur annually. He had no time to make  «bt statements ior everyone and  would only do so for his directors.  He took a great interest In the  resting roo* and had always done  so. He considered the letters . in  the Delta News reflected on himself.  $-. D. Rudd denied this and said  no reflection was intended on Mr.  Swift- personally. They wanted  things above board. The writers  •aty complained generally of apparent neglect.  W. H.

In almost every neighborhood  someone bas died from an attack of  jolic or cholera morbus, Often before medicine could be procured or  a physician summoned. A reliable  remedy lor these diseases should be  kept at baud. The risk is t jo great  for anyone to take.
