Array ••N.-  •  ,'. Ne. 13.  tffsssae _____:  LADNER, B C, SATURDAY,   flAY 16,  1903.  .  $1.00 a year  Terms of Agreement and  Deed of Grant of Prop*  erty Laid Before the  Meeting.  A public meeting of "persons interests! in the reading room was  held on Tuesday evening. On the  motion of the Reeve Dr. Wilson  W'.s voted to the chair. The minutes of the last meeting, held in  October, were read and confirmed.  The secretary, W. H. Smith, stated  that he had made several unsuccessful attempts to call meetings in  the interval* He reported that the  offices ot president and vice-president were vacant, the holders having left the district* Fred. Cutting  and Hanford Lewis were then duly  elected to fill the vacancies for 'the  balance of the term.  It was resolved to elect two trustees and T.   E.   Ladner   was   appointed to hold office for o»e year  and B. S. McDonald for two years.  .    The Reeve, by   request of  the  meeting, read   the   terms   of  tbe  agreement and deed of grant.    He  (W. H. Ladner) agreed to grant a  piece of land having a 30-foot frontage to Westham street to the boundaries of  the church and Jordan's  lots for the purpose ot erecting  a  reading room and library in   perpetuity so   long as   the   building  shall be used as a free reading room  and library.    The grantor further  agrees to loan the sum of $400 for  such erection at 9 per   cent.   per  annum accumulative interest until  such time as the loan is redeemed.  The payments to be made   in  not  less than $50 at  each   time.   Tke  Reeve stated that he had   already  advanced half the amount  aud was  prepared to yav the balance as soon  as the trustees signed the document  in his hand, which would be handed to them on   repayment   of the  loan.    In tbe meantime they would  have a certified copy.  W. H. Smith's only objection to  tbe agreejfcnt wastheword "free."  Tuj Hferecogu i/.cd. tha objec-  tiojfl |nad to maintain their  proS^Pby some means, and elini-  inateWne word objected to. He  said he w.uld not sell the land in  •question at any price and would  •only give it away for the purpose  _.nder review.  In reply to a question the secretary -tated that the expenditure  would not quite reach the estimated  $400.  The Reeve reported that surveyor  Warren   had   greatly ^appreciated  the room during^bis residence here  ! • >»rid had'offered to draw the plan  ofthe ground on .be'deed _f grant.  T'e trustees were empowered to  umplete the agreement  on   Le_.i.  )l the public.  The chairman suggested that t.  .<•. eve .should reckon tlie inter,  from-that date.  The secretary pointed out that  ihe income-received this year so far  Was 10 cents for old papers.  The Reeve thought that  he  and  tbe trustees would  arrange matters j  amicably in this respect.  J. W. Rudd urged that collectors  be appointed so that they might obtain revenue to keep up the institution, which was of great value to  many people here.  The secretary leported thet he  had about $30 on hand and most of  the papers were paid up to 25th  August, except one or two provincial papers, on which he was trying  to get a reduction. Vouchers  could be seen by anyone interested.  Mrs. Stainton pointed out that  t'.iere was a subscription list, a copy  o" which was in her possession.  The secretary stated that $38 had  been paid in last June on that list,  besides $6 by Mrs. Stainton. There  were probably some outstanding  promises. .  Mrs. Stainton, Fred. Cutting'acd  B. S. McDonald were appointed a  finance committee to realise funds  at their discretion.  The secretary 'reported that he  frequently found -the papers in a  bad condition and all of the old  magazines had been stolen fcom the  back -room.  The Reeve suggested the appointment of a caretaker. He 'thought  the room should close at 10 p. m.  and watched during the day. He  also suggested that they should  iake advantage of the travelling  library case at present'in the hands  of the Farmers' Institute. He had  seen 'the secretary and the librarian  of the Victoria public library who  were 'both willing to co-operate  after'the first of. June.  It was .resolved to leave tbe matters of acaretaker and the travelling  library in the hands ot thedirectors.  The meeting adjourned.  II FERRY D ill  NO   APPLICATION   TO B.   C.  "What do men do when they get  in the Legislature, pop?"  "Why they do corporations, toy  son."  GOT A DUCKING  Last Saturday afternoon a Chinaman employed at the Port Guichon  Hotel stepped on a loose plank at  the new wharf and toppled into the  river. He was fished out with a  rope by whart foreman Clark minus  his hat and plus a good ducking.  During the course of construction  it is not advisable to be too curious  while examining the works under  construction at the railway ferry  terminus.  NOT GRANTED  Iu the Dominion House on Wednesday, in answer to Mr. Wilson,  Sir Wilfrid Laurier stated that no  portion of False Creek, Vancouver,  had been leased to Messrs. Frank  Burnett and Robert Kelly.  Service is Now Running  Satisfactorily. Official  Trip Over the Road by  the Mayor of Victoria.  A representative of the Colonist  was a passenger by the Victorian  yesterday. He states that the  Mayor of Victoria with the Aldermen and City Engineer will arrive  at Port Guichon this morning at  eleven o'clock to make their official  tour of inspection. This is confirmed by tht- officials of the company. The party will be met at  Cloverdale by a deputation of business men.  At the opening of the Spring Assizes at New Westminster Mr. Justice Martin referred to the establish-  n ent of a new steamboat service  between the Fraser and Sidney as  being like all improved means of  communication a -matter of public  welfare worthy of notice.  With the inauguration of the  service of tire Victoria Terminal  Railway the company will begin  earning a nice little sum of money  annually in the way of bonuses.  Before the new contract was made  with the Victoria Terminal Railway  Company the Victoria & Sidney  Railway Company was receiving  $9,000 per annum from Victoria and  $6,000 from the Provincial Government. Thepresent company having  absorbed all the interests of the  Victoria & Sidney Railway, these  bonuses, which will run some years  yet before expiration, will be paid  over to them. Under the terms of  the new agreement the city is to  pay a bonus of $15,000 per annum  for a term of 20 years. Totalling  up the various bonuses it will be  seen that the company will be receiving $30,000 per annum in aid  from the public purse. The city  will fee called upon to pay its first  contribution of $15,000 on the 30th  day of June, 1904, and to arrange  to hand over a like amount each  year for 19 consecutive years.  The line was formally handed  over by the contractors on Wednesday.  The regulation of the traffic and  business matters during construction was transacted through the  telephone at the Port Guichon and  the services of W. L- McBride and  staff in this connection were much  appreciated. The practical supervision of the work at this end fell  chiefly on Frank O'Brien, who was  energetic and assiduous in his many  duties.  The lfne cpens up a rich belt of  country and also passes  some pic  turesque   belts    of    timber,   with  .glimpses of  Boundary Bay at in-  ervals. Between Cloverdale and  .he New Westminster ferry there is  . charming view of the Royal City  uid tbe new bridge under construction as the main line runs along the  i.anks'of the Fraser for some distance.  The alignment reflects credit on  the surveyors. There are very'few  slight curves and only one cut at  the Mound, half a mile from the  Junction.  The technical work of the patent  slip has been in the skilled hands of  H. Warren, C. E., and his assistants, while the line has been inspected by Chief McMillan from  time to time.  LOCAL ITEMS.

The Archdeacon hoped to  arrange for a resident clergyman to  take his place here. Vote of  thanks to the retiring office holders  and the organist were . passed, and  several speakers • .xpYessed ' regret  that they would lose ••their new rector almost as soon as. he h__ cor__  among them.

D. Benson for permission to  dam up the slough.  M. Butterfi-ld occupied the chair  and Mr. Dove acted as secretary.  The following resolution was  passed: Whereas, we, the property  owners'of Sunbury in meeting assembled, do believe that H. D.  Benson has applied for _ permit to  dam up, or otherwise close, the  slough between Tillbury Island and  the mainland on the south side of  the Fraser river. Aud whereas, if  this is done, we all have reason and  experience, to believe that it will  do this neighborhood incalculable  harm by sediment thus stopped,  filling up this side of the river and  depriving us of drainage and the  usefulness of Sunbury wharf.  Therefore, be it resolved that we  hereby enter a strong protest  against the stopping up of that  slough for any reason whatever,  and that a copy of this resolution  be sent to the Delta Municipal  Council, Aulay Morrison, M. P.,:  and John Oliver, M. P. P., asking  their aid and influence.  A copy of  this resolution   has  a visit to her parents.

GREATLY   ALARMED  ' Delta electors have every reason  to be proud of their member,  and  pan congratulate themselves in having chosen a straight forward honest farmer to represent them.   John  Oliver,   M,   P.   P.,   by   persistent  effort has succeeded in  throwing  inudi light on the shady corners of  pf Victorian politics.    He not only  Withered the commission of inquiry  Jnto the Kootenay land   deal   but,  ■tack to his guns until his shot  reached the bull's eye. It is. worthy  of note that it was a member of simitar class, and indeed representing the  same electors, who first disclosed a  similar 'state    of   affairs   in   the  Eighties  over  the    Crow's    Nest  grant.   He asserted on the floor of  the House that he had been approached with the offer ot so many  shares, which would not be placed  in his name unti\ after the passage  of the bill then being dealt with, so  that it could not be said that he  was an interested party.    Kootenay  has therefore an unenviable reputation in these niatters.    And now  we have the testimony of Mr. Neill,  who-says it is a common practice  for members to be approached.    If  the atmosphere of our Rotunda is  indeed so foul it is time the electors  made a clean sweep.    "The barrels  of  dollars"   or   their    equivalent  would not be lor.thcoii.ing unless  there were patrons^ to be greased.  The demand creates the  supply.  As we stated the other day men of  principle must be/, entrusted   with  our public affairs^riot  men who  pander for power and pelf.  It seems that the contention o;  t,hi Reeve anent the boundary  question ot" Delta municipality is  correct, and it is not surprising tl.e  Attorney-Ger.eral should express  astonishment at the decision ot his  deputy. Schedule A of the Constitution distinctly lays down "the  exact boundaries" of the tract of  land designated "district of New-  Westminster, suburbs," one line  being described as "the bank of the  Fraser river." Not, the middle of  the stream as the Deputy Attorney-  General rules.  y a Persistent Couch, but Permanently Cured by Chamberlain's  Cough Remedy.  H. P.

Tlie population of St. Kilda, the most  westerly of the Inhabited .Scottish is.es,  is a unique one in nuii:y respects. Tho  people are the most lonely in tlie United Kingdom, there being very little  communication with the mainland and  sometimes not for months at a stretch.  Socially the islanders are practically a  commune. If the head of a household  Is injured or loses his life among the  rocks, his widow and family share in  the proceeds of their labor as if he  ' were there to take part in it. If family  Illness prevents any one joining in the  day's work, he is asked to stay at  home, and his interests will not be lost  sight of. All questions, complaints,  etc., are determined by their mode, or  local parliament, whose judgment is  final. Early morning conferences usually determine the day's tasks.  St, Kildians are a most Industrious  and active ns weli as a religious people, and on the island at »ny rate the  vexed problem of church attendance  has been solved. Every man, woman  and child capable of leaving the household goes regularly to church, and  only some serious disability will keep  any person at home.—Scottish American.  Influence  ol  Children.  Childhood in its weakness is often a  strength that resists tbe strain of all  the passions, and that holds even when  deep hatred exerts its power to drive  asunder.  "It it were not for the child, I would  not live with you another day," I  heard an angry husband say to his  wife, when righteous indignation drove  him nearly to distraction.  That was quite a number of years  ago, and now they have two more children to strengthen .the bond between  them. This litl** episode of domestic  infelicity was recalled by some statistics that recently emanated from Ber-  Jln and which speak volumes.  These statistics have been carefully  gathered from the divorce courts, and  show that out .of 1,000 divorces ij40  were granted where there were no children, 214 where there was one child,  139 where there were two children, 60  where there were three children, 25  where there were four children, 12  •where there were five children and 10  where there were six children.  He  Wasn't   Too   Dent.  Deafness is largely a mutter of habit,  says a writer in the N'ow York Press. I  know men who cannot hear you two  fpet away, though you bawl at them,  yet at the distance of a block they w_J  grasp your faintest whisper. Sojue are  deaf for convenience, some for fraud,  some for hypocrisy. Beware of the deaf  man. One of the noted deaf men was  old Matt Griffin, long ago an assemblyman from Griffin's Corners, Delaware  comity, N. Y. By courtesy deaf .members receive front seats in the assembly, while others usually draw lots.  When old Matt was excused jfronj  drawing a fellow member hotly protested. "But the old man is as deaf as  a post," said the house leader. "Deaf!"  exclaimed the protestaut. "Matt Griffin deuf! Why, bless your honest soul,  he could hear a ten cent shinplaster  rattle ln a bag of feathers!"  Tlie First Iron Ship.  The first iron ship has more reputed  birthplaces than Homer, according to  Chambers' journal. Both the Clyde  and the Mersey claim pre-eminence ln  this respect. Sir E. J. Roblson of Edinburgh designed an iron vessel in 1810,  which was not launched till three years  later, and it is said that an iron boat  was worked on the Severn even as far  back as 1787. Steel was not used in the  construction of merchant ships' hulls  nntil 1859. Did salts were not alone in  their belief that wood was meant by  Providence to float, but Iron to go to  tho bottom. A naval constructor of  Rome repute once said: "Don't talk to  roe of iron ships. They Me contrary to  pature." Now none but stnajl craft are  built of wood in England.  The Poor Doff.  A Parisian clothes dealer kicked a  dog out of bis shop. The dog shot out  with some rapidity and knocked over  a woman with a jug of milk. The  woman broke the jug and upset an  elderly gentleman, and tbe jug cut  both of them. At that moment a cyclist arrived and was thrown off his  machine by the prostrate figures, and  simultaneously a cart came up and  smashed the bicycle. Tbe magistrate  blandly advised the entire squad to  proceed against the dog, and they are  now looking for it—London Globe.  JINGLES~"XND JESTS,  I.-*j- Man's Han_erln_.

"How do you like your new servant?"  "Tbat isn't the question at all," answered young Mrs. Torkins. "We are  trying to find out how she likes us."-  A   Doraentlo   Llmerlclc.
