Array THE  V»l. I. No. 22.  LADNER, B. C, SATURDAY, JULY   19, loo>.  $1.00 a year.  The Fishermen Agree to  Canner's Terms.   El  even Cents Lowest  ,  The followi ng is the full text of  the agreement reached between the  fishermen and thecanners:  The committee ofthe Fraser River  Cannes' Association met a deputation of white fishermen on Monday afternoon, July 14, at 3 o'clock  Present, Messrs Henry Doyle, H.  Bell-Irving and J. A, Russell.  The fishermen's delegates were:  Mr. Prouse, Eburne Lodge: Mr.  Mackie, Westminster Lodge; Mr.  Dusenbury, Mr. Damer, Vancouver  Lodge; Mr.1 Taylor, president of  Grand Lodge, Canoe Pass; Mr. Hol-  crow, Westminster Lodge; Mr. Durham, secretary Grand Lodge.  The following proposition was  submitted: J 'That our union agrees  to fish throughout the season of 1902  for the prices stated in the canners'  circular of July 8, with the following amendments and additions:  "1! That the minimum price be  raised from'io}4 to n cents.'  'r2. That the canners agree to employ qot more than 2,000 boats dur-  jng the season, the members pf our  uniq'n and Indians taking the preference of boats and gear.  ''3. That the canners assist our  union iu the collection of union fees  and dues.  "4.- That the Canners will permit  a representative pf our union to look  over and check the canners' records  of catch and pack at the end of the  season.  ."5! That the 25th of August be  considered the last day of the sockeye^ season as to settlement, etc.  "6. That the last four clauses be  considered permanent and part and  parcel of any agreement our union  may enter with the canners in the  future!  Clause 2 was considered just and  it was explained that the canners  had already reduced the boats by  ■iopercent of last year's number and  and at this late date, it is very difficult and "impracticable to guarantee  to redueg the number further, but  the advisability of reducing same is  fully recognised.  Recollection of union subscriptions, it was agreed that if orders  are given by individuaffishermento  the bookkeepers of the canneries,  instructions will be given to honor  such fishermen having any amount  accruing to him.  It was agreed to allow a representative ofthe fishermen to check the  pack.  That the sockeye season shall close  on the 25th day of August, and a  count ofthe pack to be taken a week  thereafter.  ''  •Clause 1 was rken discussed, and  it was arranged to change the price-  list to read as foflows:  "Over 500,000 and up to 550,000  cases, 11 cents per'fi-di, and that advances to fishermen shall be made  at 11 cents'per fish'delivered.  "That tlie principles "embodied in  the four 1 revious clauses will re-  ceive the carefti} consideration ofthe  canners, in any subsequent negotiations wit'1 the fishermen.

Five British Columbia students  who are attending the San Francisco  College of Physicians nnd Surgeons  attained a higher average percentage in the recent examinations than  any five of any other district. N.  Allen, of Vancouver; B. Marshall,  of New Westminster; George Goos-  trey, oi'Ladners; II. 1 lemming, of  New Westminster; and George R.  Jackson, of Victoria, are those taking courses from this province at  that college. All;.i'. headed the  graduating class, Marshall was third  and Hemming did remarkably well  in the sophomore class. George R.  Jackson, although he spent only  half the term at colle c, out of a  possible 900 took 820 marks in all  examinations.  J. A. Shoff is back to work again  in his barber shop after a few weeks  visit to the Sound.  Ex-Mayor Thos. Ovens, and W.  T. Cooksley came down from New  Westminster to-day and will spend  a few days at the Bay.  Messrs Cunningham and Curtis  of Westminster who are connected  with the company who intend placing a steamboat on the lower Fraser  were in town Wednesday, inducing  people in this section to take stock  in the concern,   i  Alexander Harivey, who on Monday pk-aded gtiiltv to misapropriat-  the sum of $102 from the funds of  the Eburne' Lodge, B. C. Fishermen's Union, of which organization  he was secretary last year, was  sentenced to six months in New  Westminster jail, with  hard labor.  Miss Yiujleek of Westminster was  in town last Saturday making arrangements for the moonlight excursion to Ladner, Tuesday evening.  A number of friends of But Alexander gave him a pleasant surprise  party at his residence, at Boundary  Bay 011 Monday eveuing. Lancing  was indulged in; and during the  festivities refreshments were served-  Friends from Westminster and Ladner were in attendance.  The window cards which were  mentoned in last night's issue of  the Westminster's sheet as being  printed out of their town, were ordered from the I)i;i,/a Nicws office.  Delta trade is all right for the Royal City-hut they must not reciprocate.  The cards were tu advertise the excursion to Ladnsr on Tuesday evening. The main object ofthe item  was, no doubt,, to try and induce  people not to go on the excursion,  but the "patriotic" whine will  have little influence and the broad-  minded people will. patronize the  Ladner excursion and give the ha!  ha! to the sheet.  SUNDAY LAW..  Municipalities  Have  No  Power to Close Hotel.  Chief Justice Hunter, at Victoria,  Tuesday, handed down an important judgment on the appeal by  Hayes ft'oin a conviction under section 5 ofthe "Sunday Observance  By-law, 1895," Nanaimo, of being  found in a bar-room of Crescent  hotel, Nanaimo, between the hours  of 10 and t2 p.m., contrary to the  provisions of the by-law.  The Chiijf Justice held that there  was no power in municipalities to  close hoi els and other places not  within the category of -'saloons."  There were, he pointed out, obviously good reasons for keeping saloons  closed on Sundays and late hours of  night, but these did not apply to a  hotel, as the latier was the house of  a guest while staying there, and he  may be in the bai-roon during such  hours if he pleased.  He decided, therefore, that clause  3 ofthe by-law was ultra vires, and  3 fell with it. The whole by-law-  he ruled was bad, and the conviction set aifide with costs.  MARKET REPORTS.

Admission to the ground 25 cents, including refreshments,  The hearts of the Ladner people  were moved to almost inexpressible  sorrow on Tuesday morning last on  being  told   that   the  flags, which  hung half-mast related the sad news  that  Mrs. W. H. Norris was dead.  Mrs. Norris was the second daughter of the late John Kirkland and  Mrs. John Kirkland of Hazel Grove-  farm.     She   was   probably better  known as Mrs. Maedonald, having  been married early in life to Captain  Maedonald,   -ho  was lost at sea a  number of years ago.     Last April  she was married  to W. H. Norris,  of Midway, where she resided until  the time of her illness^ when she  was removed to the Greenwood hospital for medical treatment, where  she   died   rather   unexpectedly on  Monday evening.      The- deceased  lady was widely known as a teacher  —a most efficient and capable one—  and  beloved and respected  by all  who knew her.      For many years  she filled the position  as   principal  of the Ladner public schcel, resigning  only last Christmas,.much to  tbe regret of her fellow teachers and  pupils.     S.foe was a useful member  of the Meth'.odist church and a most  enthusiast^- wort.er in the W. C. T  U. of which she was president last  year.     Being a thorough Christian  she devoted, much of' her time in  work of a charitable nature.  She was born at Guelph.,0nt.» July  20th, 1865,, coming to this province  at an early age.  The bereaved husband although  practically, unknown to • the people  here has their heartfelt sympathy  in this his time of bitter sorrow, and  the relatives who are called upon  to see a near and dearone laid away  in the darkness and silence of1 the  gravel, whom when, they parted  with her last was a. happy, bride  leaving' for her new Uom^, a/e assured of the sincere regret of their  many friewls and acquaintances.  The body will arrive on'tliis afternoon's boat from New Westminster arid will be taken to her mother's residence turn whence it will  be conveyed to tlie Methodist church.

At S a. 111. on Sunday, July 15th  there passed away at his home on,  the Nicomekl river, near its month,'  an old timer, in the person of Capt-  Hatt. He was born 85 yeairs. ago  in St. John, N. B., and for some  years followed his occupation of.  sailing along the Atlantic coast. In  1S49 he crossed the Panama and  lived in California till 1S60, when  he made his way to the golden Carij  boo. An exceedingly strong, active  man, he was scarcely less in his old;  age, and only last summer, although  I 84 years of age, he fished on the  j Fraser river, during the whole salmon run, and intended going again  this year till a few days ago when  he was stricken down with erysip^  elas and rapidly sank until death,  overcame, him.

Bbtcriplioii Price, p«r ?cnr In advance, Ji.oo  SATURDAY,   JULY   19,    I902  Much to the credit of the province and one of our principal  industries, trouble on the  Fraser has  i  been  avoided  by  the cannerymen  making a slight change in the slid-  ing scale offered the fishermen. The  .lowest figure of the scale being  11  cents instead of ioyj cents per fish.  .To those not thoroughly acquainted  with the situation this must appear  but a small matter, but so long as it  i .1  satisfies both the  cannerymen and  the fishermen, all welcome the one-  half cent per fish. This year's pack  being expected to be but a small  one, there is not the same amount  of interference from outside parties,  the matter was all the more easily  "settled.  It is only a matter of a short time  .-. ii-  4 ■:.    ta,H     ■ . v  until salmon canning on the Fraser  v        ■"> ' ..''. i.  will t>e a thing of the past,  unless  r,. .1 ,.■  the laws regulating the industry are  changed somewhat.    Each year the  situation becomes more critical, and  upon the powers that control the  destiny of our fair province will rest  the responsibility. The Americans  believe in traps; the Canadians do  not, because they feel sure it threatens the extermination of an industry  which they thought all their own.  It would seem that the grievance,  and there is surely one, could best  be settled by arbitration.  ' propriate for the adornment of. the  one who attended the coronation or  an)- other social event. The idea  was successful in many cases and  while some people were offended  because they were fooled, others  took it in good spirits and were able  to see the joke and to get some value  out of it. The ones who were benefitted obtained that benefit because  they used a timely thing to attract  attention to their business and used  a bright idea to gain the interest of  the individual.—Ad Art.

He  has recently been visiting Bournemouth for his health. After retiring one afternoon for some time on  a seat on the parade, be desired to  move and found some difficulty in  rising. A kind-hearted little girl of  the town was passing, and noticing  his difficulty ran up, saying: "Oh,  let me help you." Dr. King gave  her one of his sweet smiles, and  said: "You're a dear little maiden,  but I don't think you're strong  enough." "Why bless you, sir,"  was the reply, "Eve often helped  up daddy when he was a sight worse  drunk than you are!"

No person shall expose  for sale any package of fruit unless  so marked. False representation—  when more than 15 per cent, ofthe  fruit is substantially smaller in size  than the faced surface ofthe package  is, with violation of the other provision of the act punishable by fine  or imprisonment.  By amendments just passed the  /ollowing grade marks are made  j£ompulsory:  •"(c.) With a designation ofthe  .grade of fruit, wbich shall include  one of the following six marks:  For fruit of the first quality, No. 1,  or XXX.; for fruit ofthe second  quality, No. 2, or XX,; and for fruit  of the third,quality, No. 3, or X.;  but the said mark may be accompanied by any other designation of  grade, provided that designation is  not inconsistent with, or marked  more conspicuously than, the one oi  the said six marks which is used on  •the said package."  vince a number of hotel;; are owned  and managed by women, in many  cases by widows of former owners,  some of whom have families to support and have no means of livelihood.  There are instances at hand. Provided that these houses are run respectably—and many of them are  much better managed than houses  kept by men—there seems no reason  why the licenses should be taken  away.  When the next licensing day  comes round, the women referred to  will be unable to secure renewals of  their licenses, and many cases of  hardship will result.  Off His Feed.

Very few of our friends the Americans, who yearly pose as British  subjects and obtain fishing licenses,  are among the applicants this year,  for the reason .that wages are better  in the States of Washington and  Oregon than could be obtained in  1901. These reasons combined are  quite sufficient to account for the  facts and figures on the boohs of the  official issuer of fishing licenses for  1902.  Lumberman Active.  Lumbermen are already considering legislation to be recommended  to the government at the next session  of the legislature especially respecting the prohibition to the shipment  of timber to the American side of  the line. Such shipment is absolutely prohibited, the contention of  loggers being that they are losing  money by having to sell in the local  market^,which, while not limited in  any sense, has no competition to  hold up its prices.

It willbe remembered that to  wards the close of last session of  pralianienf, when the deadly dul-  ness of thft daily proceedings had  driven many members of the legis  lature to Seek solace in the mild  fascinations of ping pong, a certain  bill to amend the Liquor License  Act, introduced by W.
