C, SATURDAY, APRIL 19, 1902.  $1.00 & year.  ■i- .-  Price of Produce.—Hap-  ennings of The Week  at the Royal City.  New Westminster,, April 19.—  The city market held yesterday was  an average one. The supply of  meats was fair and what was offered found a ready sale. There was  much better inquiry for veal than  •has been the case for sometime.  Poultry was not plentiful and  what was offered found a ready sale  at the high prices now prevailing.  Eggs wete abundant and all that  was offered did not find a sale.  The potatoes sold realized  prices  about the same  as last week,   the  quotations showing no indication of  dropping again but will  probably  rise several points yet. However in  .spite of the prices the demand for  ,the tubers was limited.  BBS!'' Per P0'"1"1  JUndqnnrters     iuc.

Short-  reed. $11.4.0.  The council then adjourned till  Saturday, April 26th, at 2 p.m.  Another injunction   against  V. Vi & E. has been issued.  the  No  Possibility of North  Victoria Election for  Some Time.  The main items of interest in the  legislature for the past week has  been the declaration of the minister  of mines that the government would  not bring on the election in North  Victoria at present.  The motion of Mr. McBride, demanding the resigntaion of the Government on account of the contract  which they had made with the Edmonton Yukon Railway Company,  created quite a ripple of excitement.  Messrs. Oliver and Kidd supported  the resoutiou, whilst Hayward and  Helmecken voted for the. government. Much unfavorable comment  is heard in regard to the action pf  the two last named gentlemen, in  view of the fact that, in the recent  by-election, in Victoria, both of  these gentlemen denounced this  agreement.  It is reported that McLean Bros  oi Vancouver, have entered into  contract with the government for  construction of the Coast-Kootenay  Road. It has been frequently stated here since the issue of Mr. Dewd-  ney's report of the survey made over  the route of the proposed Coast-  Kootenay that this report is much  more unfavorable to the route than  warranted by the facts.  A deputation from the canners'  association waited on the government to-day, and had an interview  with the executive. It is understood  that they were very much dis-satis-  fied with the action of the government in cancelling the reserves on  the foreshore of this province, and  it is rumored here that certain parties received an intimation that this  reserve was to be cancelled, thus  giving them an advantage in applying for foreshore rights for the purpose of erecting fish traps.  Considerable unfavorable comment  is heard in respect to the action of  the attorney-general securing an  injunction to prevent the construction of the V. V. & E. Railway in  the Boundary Creek district. It  seems inconceivable that a government which is prepared to spend  dollars and give away millions  of acres pf land for the purpose of securing railway construction, should expend the funds of the  province to obstruct the building of  a road which asks for no assistance  whatever. It ceriainly appears as if  the government was under the domination of the Canadian Pacific  railway.  It is also rumored that the government may not bring down any  railway legislation this session.. Of  course they are pledged to do Sk>,  but, judging by their record, it need  not be any surprise if the House  prorogues without this legislation  being introduced. It is stated that  Mr. Dunsmuir has booked his passage to England to attend the coronation ceremonies, and that he will  leave here on the 13th of May.  Mr Oliver moved, that an order  of the House be granted for a return  showing in detail all moneys expended in connection with public  works in the riding of Delta for the  period between July 1, 1900, and  December 31, 1902.  Mr. Oliver moved the resolution  in order to draw attention to certain  discirepencies in the annual report of  the    Department    of   Lands   and  Works. He pointed put that  certain road work was charged at  $6, which to his knowledge must  have cost close on $900. In; another  place where work was put 4°wn as  costing $240, it had actually cost  over $600, and so on. The report of  the Department of Lands and  Works was deceiving in many par  ticulars, as he knew the larger  amounts had been expended on the  works in question.  Mr McBride moved that an order  of the House be granted for the  return of all papers and. letters re  ceived by the government, and the  replies thereto, in connection with  any proposed dredging operations  on the Fraser river between  Harrison River and Steveston,  and whether under the supervision  of either the Dominion or Provincial authorities, or both.  Hon. Mr. Wells said there were  no papers, or correspondence in his  department regarding the matter.  Mr. McBride said the lands in  question were being rapidly washed  away by the yearly freshets, and it  was important that the government  should take the matter in hand and  devise some means to stop the destruction of a large area of what  might be made valuable agricultural  lands. Under the circumstances,  however, he would withdraw his  resolution.  Baptist Entertainment.  On Monday evening a large crowd  attended the platform meeting and  social held in the new Baptist  church, in connection with the op^  ening. Qn the platform Re\\ Mr,  Williamson was assisted by the  Rev. P, H. McEwen, I. G, Matthews, Truman Bishop, from the  cities $nd the local ministers,, Rev's.  T. Oswald and E. Manuel. After a  few words of welcome ftom the  chairma.11, Mr Oswald delivered a  splendid address, on the great need  for hearty co-operation to fight the  day. He appealed to the people to  support the reading room as it was  an agent greatly cpjiducive to the  morality of the tow-f. He was glad  to be there, and show his sympathy  with the Baptists in their efforts to  extend the Kingdom of God. Mr.  Matthews fpllpwed, and said that  every church was a standing protest  against imuipnality in ever}' form..  Mr. Bishop spoke next and said  thai he was impressed with the ffict  that Ladiwr was well provided with  churches and that although some  might thhak too many, he thpught  that there was need for all- That  while; there existed differences of  opinion in men's minds their  uumber could not grow l^ss,. There  were many principles on which  they could all stand aad work together. Mr. Manuel was next cal-  ed upon and in the course of a witty  speech said that he expected to see  the time when there would be fewer  denominations. He congratulated  the Baptists on their achievement,  and wished them even- good and  prosperity. Mr. McEwen followed  and said that the church had a place  to fill in the community which  could not be filled by any other organization and if this church did  not fill that place it ought to die.  All the addresses were thoroughly  enjoyed by the audience. During  the evening Miss Thirkle sang " In  Heavenly Love Abiding," which  was very much appreciated. Rpv,  Mr. Williamson plaved a cornet  solo "The Holy City," and also  gave a recitation. After the program the ladies served refreshments.  I COLll BAP  Played to a Large House  Last Saturday Evening.  Everybody in Ladner went to seethe Colleen Bawn on Tuesday evening last—at least the crowded house  would give one that impression.  The New Westminster theatrical  amateurs accompanied with a large  coterie of friends arrived at Ladner  about 8:30 o'clock by the steamer  Beaver and the performance began  shortly after lasting for about two  hours. Our readers are yet familiar  with the plot and its characters,  and we believe all will agree with-  us that it was a great success. There-  can be no question of the audience.s,  approval as the actors were cheered;  generously and vigorously during  the presentation. The company is  a credit to the Royal City and held  the close attention of the audience  throughout the three acts and under  more favorable circumstances the  play could be presented much better, however, the various dramatic  situations, so far as the stage would  permit, were given full justice by  the young artists. Some of the  characters were particularly creditable, but there is not a weak person  in the cast and the popular verdict  is that "The Colleen Bawn " was  certainly the best thing seen in Lad-  neT this winter. We hope-that at  some future date when the>com$any  hare another play to pr-ssetifc that  they will pay our town % visit;..  Financially, we undittstand the  venture was a success,, and the lacrosse club have a net balance of  $25 to show as a result of, tihe trip.  After the performance the hall  was cleared and.a short dance was  enjoyed by those- who felt so inclined.  The steamer left for the Royal  City shortly after- one o'clock, and  thus ended the: second moonlight  excursion to Ladner by the young  people of Westminster.  Fraser River Bridge.  Work on the.substructure of' tha  new bridge across the Fraser. ajb  New Westminster will be. begun,  next week by th$. successful tender-,  ers, Messrs. Armstrong,. Morrjson &  Balfour. Camps will be started, and  the shore work will be begun.  The contract is a large one, but  owing to, the high water which prevails from now until or latter end  of May little work, can be. done in  the stream before. Uie summer  When the water pe/mits, however,  the work- will be flushed, and it is  estimated that 150 men or more  will be employed. The banks of the,  Fraser-in the neighborhood of l^e  historip city of New Westminster,  will be the active scene of bvyiy  operations this year.  It is probable that the superstructure will also be be constructed by this firm.  Mayor Keary of New ^^tmln^  ster received word this week that  Andrew Carnegie would put up a  $15,000 public library building if  the city provided suitable site and  $1,500 annually for maintenance.  A fine site is available, and it is not  improbable that the scheme, wilj  n\eet with piiblic approval and the  donor's conditions complied with.

Sul&cripUou Price, per year in advance, fi.oo  SATURDAY, APKIt, 19,   IQ02.  la 1890 an order-in-council was  passed reserving the foreshore rights  on the Pacific coast of British Columbia. Now according to the last  issue of the B. C. Gazette tlKse reserves have been thrown open for  the purpose of asserting the province's jurisdiction in the premises,  so says the honorable attorney-general. The discussion of this matter  has taken up considerable time of  the provincial legislature during the  past week. Smith Curtis, brought  in the following motion:  '' That an order of the house be  granted for a return of all applications for forshore rights on the Pacific coast of British Columbia during the past two years, giving the  name <?f each applicant, the description of the foreshore applied for,  and tlie purpose, if any, for which  the applicant stated such rights  were to be used.  " Also, copies of all correspondence from applicants, and from the  government, or any member thereof  'to   the   applicant!   respecting   the  Bride appear to have taken a stand  that fishermen's rights are "being interfered with by the provincial government, and that it would throw a  number of citizens of British Columbia out of employment, causing to  them a severe loss, as well injuring  injuring the canning industry of the  province. If the government instead of doing as they have done,  would insert an amendment in the  Fisheries Act barring all but white  men and Indians from fishing, we  think they would show themselves  more the guardian of the people's  interests and fishermen's rights.  Dewdney's report on the Hope  trail survey for the V. V. & E. railway has been read in the legislature  The report turns down the trail. It  says that it presents great engineering difficulties, the mineral deposits  are riot encouraging and there is  nothing to warrant the contemplated expenditure.

It i  granted, or promised to be granted,  ,by the government, and the terms  of such grants."  In connection with this matter  Mr. Mel nues has suggested that the  motion be made to include an order  for the correspondence between the  .local and dominion governments on  /che matter. However, this latter,  .suggestion was thrown aside as it  appears that it would involve so  much work that the return would  ,n.ot be available this session. In the  above lies a tale almost pitiable in  the extreme. On the American  waters fish traps are allowable. Last  year the provincial government appointed a fishery commissioner.  Lately, every means possible have  been taken advantage of to form a  cannery combination known as the  British Packers' Association, incorporated under the laws of New Jer-  'sey. Although we are not on the  io'side ring of the political affairs of  ttus province these facts are suggestive enough for us to form an opinion on these matters, much jve be-  liejpie to ,the detriment of the respectable fishermen of the Fraser river.  Does it not look as ihough the government having already come under  the baneful influence of this American association and have thrown open  these foreshore rights to enable this  company or any other company that  might be singularly incorporated, to  acquire these privileges for the purpose of engaging in  fish  trappin  The liberal members for British  Columbia have wailed on the members of the dominion government  and asked that the Chinese and Japanese reports of the royol commission be printed, and that the government at once carry out what the  commissioners recommend. The  members asked that this be done  this session.  The growing financial strength  of Canada is evidenced by the fact  that in 1896 the debt was $19,476  000 more than the trade. Now the  trade exceeds the debt by over  $100,000,000.  Get  your stationery  and school  books at Faweett's Drug Store.  We may be somewhat mistaken but  these facts look ominous indeed.  One prominent canneryman has  already' applied for valuable foreshore rights on the Straits of San  Juan de Fuca, and it is possible that  ■within the next few weeks every  foot of valuable foreshore may be  applied for by prominent eanners to  tfe detriment of the fishermen- and  possibly for the purpose of turning  these rights over to the British Packers1 Association. We would like to  see the fishermen take this matter  up and forward to the government  (heir rights in the matter.

If she cannot swallow, no attempt should be  made to give her anything,   as congestion   of the lungs, or   possibly  immediate suffocation,   may be the  result.  Mustard, made into a paste, should  be rubbed along each side of the  spine, and the cow should be turned  two or three times a day and the  udder rubbed, but no milk should  be taken until the animal is recovering. On recovery, the food should  be moderate in amount and given  in a moist condition.  Diarrhoea or Scouring is as a rule  caused by indigestion, brought on  by unsuitable food and irregular  feeding, or stagnant water. It is  essential that the cow be kept warm  and clean, and 2 ozs. of castor oil,  with about a thaspoonfnl of laudanum, should be given, or in the case  of calves an ounce of castor oil with  twenty drops of laudanum, and if  the calf is in pain, give, three times  a day, fifty drops each of laudanum  and sulphuric ether. Afterwards  tonics should be given to strengthen  the weakened membranes. Six or  eight drops of hydrochloric acid, in  ' a dessertspoonful of whisky, with a  half-tumbler of water, given daih  ' is a good tonic. Half the dose for  calves; and the latter should be fed  on new milk given with a little lime  water three or four times a day.  Cripples, or brittleness and. softness of the bones, is generally caused by want of lime in the soil. It is  said that separated milk with bran  will prevent the disease. During  the winter the milk and bran should  be mixed to make a mash twelve  hours before required; it then ferments sufficiently to make it just  warm, and the cows will take it without trouble. This food will give an  increased supply of milk.  Tuberculous Disease.—The skin  of a healthy cow is soft and loose  over the flanks, but in tuberculous  disease it may become hard with  adhesions. The hind quarters of  the udder become hard, but not tender. The glands above the udder,  high up between the quarters, are  generally affected; those above the  affected quarter becoming enlarged  and hardened.  The disease is caused by the  cacillus tuberculosis and these are  sometimes found to exist in the milk  ducts of cows which are apparently  quite healthy,  A 6jgn of the disease may be noticed in the milk, which becomes  tinged yellow, instead of the blue  shade good milk has when just  drawn. Milk with this yellow tinge  should be Carefully examined for the  preaence of the bacilli, as, if the milk  is infected with the tuberale bacilli  and cousumed by children or persons  in delicate health, there is grert  danger of tubercular infection.

One  jlood of a cow affected  ease is said to contain  i  of  these   organisms,  is of a most  dangerous  and   contagious   nature,   and   the  greatest precaution  is necessary in  the case of an affected animal, as the  spreading of its dung over grass may  infect whole herds.    In the  case of  an animal dying from this  disease,  its carcass should either be burned  or burried  at least 6 or 7 feet deep  to prevent the bacilli from forming  spores, and to kill them off, as they  cannot exist if no oxygen is present,  or if the temperature is below  54 °  F. ; and at the depth named oxygen  is not present in sufficient quantity,  nor the temperature  high enough,  for the existence of the organisms.  Typhoid    fever,    scarlet   fever,  cholera, etc,, are caused by special  bacilli; and as  cases  have occurred  where the outbreak of these diseases  has been traced' back  to  the milk  supply, it   is   necessary   that   the  greatest care should be taken to use  only pure water in   washing   cans  and   other   utensils.    Stagnant  or  pond, or well water   situated   near  drains should never be used. Water  that may appear quite bright and  clear   may   be   charged   with the  organisms, and simply rinsing out  a milk pail with it may  carry contagion far and wide,   as milk is a  perfect medium for the growth of  the bacilli.  REVISED PSALM OF EIFE.  At twenty, when a man is young,  He thinks he knows it all;  He likes to wag his active tongue  And exercise his gall.  He struts around in noble rage,  The world is all his own,  He laughs to scorn the world of age  And lists to self alone.  He wears a window in his eye  To see his whiskers grow;  He thinks the ladies pine and die  Because tbey love him so.  At forty as you may suppose,  He's knuckled down to biz,  'Tis not till sixty that he knows  How big a chump he is.  —Ex.  W. C. T. U.  Hotel Colonial  J. K. INSI.KY, Prop.

How humiliating is the traffic iu  strong drink. To the publican it is  humiliating, because everybody  knows that he is getting his living  in a disreputable way. He is living  on the weakness and vice of mankind. An improvement in peoples  morals means ruin to his business.  In so far as a custamer patronizes  him, the customer goes down.  Can't the publican see it? Yes he  can and does and it makes him feel  mean. It is humiliating to the  country to be permitting such ruinous business for the revenue. The  country that cannot float without  11 e drink traffic ought tosink. The  cpuntry that is controlled by the  worst element—that is the whiskey  element—is to be despised.
