The-ninth annual meeting ofthe  Diary men's and Live Stock Association of, British Columbia, convened  in the Board of Trade rooms at  Westminster Wednesday morning.  The president and secretary re-  parted to the meeting the work of  the past year and discussed the  governments actions in uot co-operating with the Association.  The Dominion Live-Stock 'Commissioner had been doing tmsiness  with the late secretary, and was  opposingthe Association in it's dealings.  Con_derah_ correspondence has  passed between the officers and  members and Mr. Hodgson, in lef-  erence to his actions, and some of  the stock furnished the Association a short time ago.  W."H.. Ladner took exception to  •.some remarks in Mr. Hodson's letter in reference tocertain statements  smade by him ait the last semi-annual meetting, and dared Mr. Hodgson to sue him for libel, as Mr.  Hodson hinted in the letter. Mr.  Ladner, «fteuring a copy <©f last j  _ieetin.g'« meport, explained that;  ithere was nothing so dreadful in it  ,as might be inferred from Mr. Hod-  ison's letter. But certainly there  had been scandal in .connection with  the importation of cattle. There  Tvas the fir6t batch of Ayrshires, for  Instance- They _ad been bought  tfrom Mr. Hodgson's farm, from one  of Mr. Hodgson's tenants,, and Mr.  Hodgson was supposed ito have  •owned a half interest in them.  Then later thene was a bull sold  for $170. He wrote to the -man  who bred the bull who replied that  it was "Not a show bull in appearance, as the price indicates," .but  that it was good enough for British  Columbia. This indicated that the  bull had been bought for a -song.  He sold it later for $50, and was  glad to take a buckskin note in  payment.  J. R. Anderson, Deputy Minister \ef Agriculture, ihi the course of  a few remarks, agreed with the  president's suggestion to pay more  attention to dairying. In the matter of inspection, no doubt great  improvement _ad occurred, not  •nly in the health of the cows, but  in the methods .of milking, etc:,  and a general improvement jn the  quality of milk furnished the public.  Heiagreed with the secretary's remark that it they wanted first-rate  .animate, they must pay higher for  them than people here generally  nrxpect. Farmers were hardly prepared, yet, to hold whiter ifairs in  British Columbia, but a step had  been taken in the right direction by  instructing young men in the art of  judging stock. He hoped before  long to have winter shows here, but  it would cost money for tlie necessary tboildings, -etc.  The president thought the meetings <of ithe Association should be  made .as interesting as possible,  and suggested procuring a speaker  for the semitannual meeting.  T. J- Trapp thought Mr. Hodg-  json's letter (to the secretary should  not be allowed to .go iimchallenged.  Judging by rit -thjay .could not expect tl«e-g&vtjTiiUtei»t grant of $650  Which is an injustice, apparently  visited on their heads because their  selection of a secretary did not  please the Dominion Live Stock  Commissioner. They should not  be dealt with in such a childish  manner and he proposed appointing a special committee to prepare  a memorial on the subject to be  threshed out on the floor of the  House of Commons by Mr. Aulay  Morrison. He agreed with other  speakers that dairying was at the  root of successful farming in this  country, the creameries were demonstrating this fact. He said the  inspection of dairies was only partially carried out. He knew of  some dairies which should not exist, and the measures adopted were  not half stringent enough. It was  a disgrace if diseased cows were allowed to be milked by a man supplying milk to the public. The department has no right to divulge  information received from members  of this Association, to their detriment.  The satisfaction given by those  who conducted affairs last year, j  was recognized by the Association j  which honored most of them with I  re-election by acclamation, the re-j  suit being as follows: President, |  A C Wells, Chilliwack; vice-presi-l  dent, W P Jaynes, Victoria; secre-i  tary-treasurer, L W Paisley, Chilliwack.  Directors wen -levte.1 to represent the three niitdrhl divisions c>;  the province, as follows: lower 'und  upper mainland and Vancouver island.  Those from the lower mainland  are Messrs. S H Shannon, Cloverdale; W H Ladner, Ladner; H J  Kirkland, Westham Island; Orion  Bowman, Upper Sumas; T J Trapp,  New Westminster.  Special Meeting of The  Council  on Saturday  'Last.  A special meeti: g of the municipal council was held last Saturday  afternoon in the euincil chambers.  All the members were present, besides F. W. Howpv, solicitor.  The meeting was called to discuss  matters in connection with the,  right-of-way of the railway through  the Delta municipality. Those in  attendance representing the railway  company were, John Hendry, president of the company; Thornton  Fell, solicitor; J. McMillan,   engin-  prolubit immigration as far as possible.  Sir Wilfrid Laurier, in discussing the matter, said that when the  last increase had been made by the  government, making the head tax  $100, instead cf-$5o, as formerly, it  was done to see how the experiment would result.  They were then informed by the  Dominion government that a law  restricting the immigration of Chinese into British Columbia would be  allowed, hut that the Japanese, for  Imperial political reasons, must  not be interfered with.  Another concession promised is  that the provincial government  shall receive fifty per cent, instead  of twenty-five per cent, ofthe Chinese poll tax.

Prizes for the contest are  on exhibition at Marshall Smith's  store window.  The municipal council have decided to dispense with the services  of a medical health officer.  W. J. Brandrith has recently  taken over the Raight farm, near  O'Brien's corner. He moved his  family down the first of the week.  Word ha* been received from  Brookfield, N. S., of.the marriage  of two young people, formerly of  Ladner, F. Dorland, and Miss A.  B. Marshall.

Owing;to the enormous oat crop  in Manitoba and the North-West,  large quantities are finding their  way to the coast, -two cars having  arrived last week,.consigned to Mr.  Steyes, the well known farmer of  Steveston. These oats are of excellent quality, and go over 40 pounds  per'bushel. Last year's crop was  about 574,000 tons in Manitoba,  and 85,000 tons in Alberta,:and it  is expected that owing to.lower  prices a good many cars wi'l find  their way tc the coast.  The Winnipeg, "Commercial," of  last week, .'xejjorting on the situation in Manitoba says: "There  must be 18,000,000 bushels of oats  in the country over and above its  seed aud feed requirements, aud  for which there is at present no  shipping outlet. A sharp decline  in priceG may be expected as soon  as the oats begin to move. At  present farmers are getting 20.een.ts  per bushel at country points, which  is considered a fair price in Manitoba. -_   ^     THE RIVER ROAD.  slander, and a similar suit has been ]  The following report,  signed by  candidatd,    against    Mr. j the mayor and president   of the  passed giving the railway company I »»"**■    F- L- Carter-Cotton, jsd-i board of trade,   was presented at a  these privileges, and a by-law will j Uor end ProPrietor of the ^ews" | special meeting of the Westminster  be submitted in a week or so which |  It is necessary for a^ by -law to be!  will be voted on by property  owners. It only requires a majority of the votes to carry the by-law.  In the meantime, so as not to delay construction, the council gave  permission for the company to proceed with the work.  Councilor Burr gave notice that  at next meeting of the council be  would introduce the Victoria-Terminal Railway and Ferry by-law.  Work on the Construction of the  Victoria-Terminal railroad through  the Delta municipality commenced  Monday afternoon on W. H. Ladner's property. -On other portions  of the right-of-way and at Cloverdale, large gangs of men are engaged in a similiar work. A.  Guthrie & Co., are the contractors  tor the railway, C. Foliott being in  charge ou.this end. Sub-contracts  have been let and the work will be  rushed to completion. The contract for the piling and bridging  over all ravines and creeks on the line  from Cloverdale to Pt. Guichon has  been awarded to Walter A. Gilley  of Westminster. As arranged with  the municipal council, the railway  company will put iu sidings at different points on the flats for accomodation of freight, and which will  also be flag stations.  W. Livingstone has been appointed agent for the "Garden to  Consumer Tea Co.," and is prepared to receive orders for high-  class teas.   See ad.  CHINESE TAX.

G.  Macpherson.  A meeting will be held in the  town hall this evening, of those interested in mining. Delegates will  be elecied to attend the convention  to be held in Victoria on Feb. 25.  NEW HOTEL.  It is very likely that in a short  time L:\dner will be able to boast of  having a first-class, up-to-date hotel, equal to any on the coast.  James W. Welsh, who for some  yeais conducted the Delta Hotel,  has recently returned from Huntingdon and is having plans andar-  ranger.ients made .for going -ahead  with the proposition.  From the plans the hotel -will be  two storeys, and the rooms are well  laid out with every convenience.  Ladner is badly in need of an up-  to-date hotel, and we believe the  general public, and those who are  not in favor of licenses, will concede  this. From what we cam learn of  Mr. 'Welsh, during his past stay  here, we believe he will conduct the  hotel satisfactory to all. At the  present time, and during :the year  the accommodation for travellers is  insufficient and time and again it is  9 hard job for one to secure lodgings.  £t is expected that in a couple of  weeks 'definite aranngements will  be completed for to start work on  the building.  WEST YALE.  Dr. George Sanson, of Ashcroft,  is mentioned as the probable candidate in the government interestsin  West Yale. Charles A. Semlin,  ex-premier, will be the opposition  candidate. If the Dr. consents to  accept the nomination there will be  an interesting candidate, as he is a  strong man in that section. The  election will be brought on before  the end of February.  ening last, aud which *was read at  the council meeting on Monday  evening: "We,-the undersigned,  who were appointed a. special committee with power to act with reference to the continuation of ihe  River Road from Ladner, beg leave  to report as follows: The government, wishing to see the road constructed, agrees to contribute the  sum of $6,000 towards the work;  $4,000 will be paid as the work  progresses, and upon certificates  signed by the Public Works Inspector or the inspector in charge of the  work. The remainder, "$2,000,  will be available on and, after the  ist of July next. Plans and specifications are no being prepared, and  it is eqepected that tenders will be  called for the cpnstruction of the  road within ten,days or two weeks.  On account of our adopting [the  route .laid, .out by Mr. Killeen, it  will he necessary for us to epmmun-  icatelurther with the municipalties  of Surrey and D$h>i to obtain their  consent to the proposed change of  location."  At. another .special meeting attention was gireu to matters in connection with the Ladner road extension, and the Delta branch ofthe  Great Northern Railway now under  construction. In this latter connection the transportation committee pf the board was requested, tp  ascertain from the direotors of the  proposed railway, their intentions,  and also to ascertain from them if  they would be willing to establish*  daily steamboat between New  Westminster and Sidney in connection therewith.  At a meeting of the parties interested in settling in the Bulkley valley at Vancouver, Thursday evening, it was decided to go ahead and  locate and open up a settlement.  The president of the new organization is H. Higgins, with Mr. Evans, of East Delta as vice-president.  The new colony will wait for no  one but will go in as soon as pot*  sible in the Spring.

They had an interview with  the federal ministers Monday afternoon, the subject discusser} was the  fisheries of the province.. Mr. EJb-  erts was spokesman on.< t_5 provincial side. After being' introduced  by Colonel Prior, the attorney-general advanced an argument in favor  of the dominion paying over to the  province all the money collected by  _e dominion from the fisheries,  since confederation, outsitle of what  money was expended by the dominion in the way of protection- The  amount asked was about a  million  Construction on the: (railroad has  commenced.

THE SOCKEYE LIMITED-  The new railway had not been  long opened lor traffic, but it was  long enough to' have established a  reputation for' slownessi. At one:  part oft the line it crosses a road,  and instead of the railway jates  shutting across this road they are  made to shut? across the railway.  This necessitates the tsain coming  to a stand-still every jparney, until  the guard jumps off and opens the  gate. It then glides slowly through  and draws up again till the guard  shuts them aud jumps on again  with the cry,. "All right!" It  was very crowded one night, and  when the first halt was made to  open the gates a young man got up  and looked out. "What's wrang  Jock?" asked a companion. "Oh,  no' muckle," replied Jock, "I think  there's a coo on the line." Presently the train moved on again, but  only to draw up again while the  .gates were- being shut. "What's  wrang noo, Jock?" asked his companion again. "Oh, it's jist the  ,way o' this train,!*' replied Jock.  "Ye see we'va- made up ou that  coo."  I  PARLOR  Tobacco,. Pipes, andiCigarr.

POACHERS FINED.      .  A Westminster dispatch says:—  Convictions were secured at Mission Junction, Saturday, in the case  of the Americans charged with  poaching on Sumas Prairie, and  fines imposed. The report that  special Constable Joseph Cole had  arrested three men was incorrect.  He arrested four, and all were  prominent citizens of Washington.  The four men were arrainged before Capt. Pittendrich, S. M., and,  upon conviction, each was heavily  fined. In each case a fine of $20  was imposed for the offence of  shooting in British Columbia without a license, and each of the four  was required to take out a license,  the cost of which was $50, and  each man had to pay $3 costs, thus  making the total amount of the  fines $292.   The money was paid.  1 FA!  CANT-HOOK.  Here is a true incident which  took place one day while a number  of men were at work piling sawlogs.  Of course Pat was the man chosen  to go to another part of the woods  after a cant.hook, but having never  seen one, and too independent to  ask what it was like, he started off,  resolved to bring the first thing  which be thought resembled one.  After searching for some time, he  discouvered a muley cow.  "Be jabers," said Pat, "I've  found one at last, I'll drive her  over any way, for I see she can't  hook."  LYNCH'S SENTENCE  It is now generally conceded that,  as cabled to tbe Associated Press on  the day he was condemned to death,  the sentence passed on Colonel Arthur Lynch, who was found guilty  of high treason, will be commuted  to penal servitude for life, which  sentence will be subject to further  consideration after a term of years.

The boys of a Sunday school  were asked to bring each a penny  to be devoted to the missionaries.  "And," added the teacher, "I wish  each penny to be given with an appropriate text." On the. following  Sunday the first boy had his pen-  ney ready and his text pat—"The  Lord loveth a cheerful giver."  The teacher beamed. The penny  of boy No. 2 was also waiting, and  his text ran—"He that giveth to  the poor lendeth to the Lord."  The teacher's approval was slightly less emphatic. Boy No. 3 fished  deep in his pocket for his penny.  "A fool i and his money are soon  parted !" was his text.  4 Miles South of Ladner.  MR. H N.
