On the Highway By law being  brought forward Councilor Arthur  asked why the roads could not be  kept open. Tbe settlers Would  rather have the roads than the land.  No one misses the land and everyone can use the roads. They should  get a vote of the people when it  would be found they were all in  favo* of the roads remaining open.  If the council rescind tbe roads in  ~*~ | tbe future, when they want them,  Thetegulir meeting of the Delta'tbey wilt have to pay for them.  Municipal council took place last  Saturday evenings Present.: The  Reeve, Councilors W. Arthur, J.'  McCallan, J. B. Burr, T. E* Ladner  and L. W. Embree.  The minutes of the last meeting  were read and coafirmed.  There were no letters or«:eports.  The Reeve stated that the destruction of the Canadian thistles  was not at all satisfactory,, alt-bough  they put a man on, with instructions to be very careful.

Councilor Ladner *«d' tbe>summonses had done some good as the,  defendants cut their thistles before  the cases were beard..  Councilor Burr did not believe in  Tunning with the hare and hunting  With the hounds. Everyone should  be treated alike.  Councilor Ladtaer stated that 'be  had asked the constable twice to  send men out to cut thistles ffisd he,  himself seat two me*.  (Councilor McCallan tfiovefi 'that,  the constable be -written to notify-!

The mo-  ' tion was seconded and carried unanimously..  The following reports* brought  up: "We, the committe appointed  ' « meet the manager of the Van-  tfcuver Terminal Railway re sid  Jugs, beg to report that we have  made an ,agreemiertt with f$bj.

Provincial officer Munro will be  in charge at Steveston during tbe  fishing season to prevent tbe steal-  I ing of nets and gear. Victoria papers report that   the   salmon  are  i-niakiug their way in large numbers  through 'the straits past the southern end of the island towards tbe  Fraser.  The toads were now th* people's  property and their right* must be  considered. As regards the road  by his property his sons would live  there if he dSd not. He believed in  feftciqg the roads, but did not believe in taking away the people's  property.  Councillor McCallan knew that if  W. Kirkland got a road he would  not consent to its being rescinded.  He did not believe it was right to  take away any of the roads.  Councilor Ladner asked . who  would use the roads. The more  roads they had the more the council had to keep in repair. In two  years' time \V. Kirkland will be  wanting the council to dig a ditch.  The Reeve suggested tbat the  road be rescinded as fat as Bound-  •s&.y road-  -; 'Coundilor Burr itftiought their solicitors should be asked if the council had the power tto rescind toads.  Cottncilor McCallan moved to  tbat 'effect, seconded by Councilor  Arthur, and carried. .  Councillor Ladner remarked that  the bv-law would have to be cancelled as they could not take out a  part and leave a part in.  *On the motion "©f Councilor McCallan the Revenue By-law was lln-  lally passed as iecffinsidenjd.  Councilor McCallan reported that  "ne and the Clerk had inspected the  Toad between Tam'berlineand Trim.  The former had got all the Council  agreed to glive him. In fact, more,  as the agreement was 6 to 3 and he  had got 7 'to 6. The trouble between them was at the end of the.  wharf with which the council had  nothing to do. Tbe road had better be gazetted and he gave notice  of a new highway by-law. Tbe  report was (received >aud adopted.  Councilor Burr s«id that the road  for which IBenson applied could be  included.  Councilor   Ladner,  refarring   to  his road, said that if it was to be  declared open he would have  to  pull up his fence and erect another  but he would expect his neighbors  to follow suit.    .  It was decided to summon all dog  owners who failed to pay their tax  before tbe ist of August.  Councilor Embree was empowered to make tbe best arrangements  possible for the sale,of fir tree! near  the gravel pit.  Councilor -Ladner was surprised  there was no report on   sanitary  matters.  Councilor Burr said the matter  had been brought up several times,  but nothing done.  Councilor McCallan moved that  Councilors Ladner and Arthur and  Di. King be Empowered to do what  is necessary.   ^Carried.  The following accounts were then  passed for payment: Jas. Nelson,  £16; Todd, fa,; P.  falk,  $i) E.  Chideli,  ,$6,5.62;  Geo.

EDUCATIONAL MATTERS.  A  recent  cable  from Johannes'  burg reported a conference between  putch and English teachers there.  Much depends on th? educational  policy adapted during (he next few  vears.    It has been truly said that  the appointment of a school principal is of more consequence to a nation's power than the promotion o(  a major-general.    "Wbat," asks a  well known writer, "can be of more  |mpoitanc^ to civilization than tht  raising of human values, the tr. kins;  of crude, ignorant lumps of humar.  clay, and, by years of patient fashioning and intelligent training, developing tfyetn into educated,  cul  ' ii  tured, aud strong men ?''  '.'It is the office of a teacher " hi  continues, ",to raise human \alues ;  to take the lf?w and elevate them ;  to train, $e   ignorant   and   leavw  them"4ntelligeut; to restrain the im-  •: <r  petuous and self-wi-lled and shaps.  them into self-controlled, polished,  beautiful characters."  As regards South Africa, the difficulty at present is that  the taal, a  f  patois dialect, is used by the parents  hi the home, and consequently by  tfre children in the streets and playground. This vocabulary is added  to by native slang and '.'kitchen  "Kaffir", whiqh the children pick  tip from their fathers' hired servants. This is tbe case on many  farms in Cape Colony where both  parents ar„e„ 9f English—even military stock... IX is invariably so  y.h'en the mother is of Boer origin  and the father Anglo-Sa^on or  German.  It has recently been decided: in  Ontario that Latin will not ip, future be required for teachers' certificates, but chemistry has tyeen  made compulsory. No doubt the  latter is a useful subject, but should  fcardly be considered a sine qua  ijon at the sacrifice of Latin, a  knowledge of which is essential for  the   proper   teaching   of;   English  !'  grammar.  The first election of scholars in  Canada under the Rhodes'bequest  will be made between February and  May, 1904. The elected scholars  iyill commence, residence in October, 1994. A qualifying examination will'be held within this period  ip. each province, or at centres  which can'be easily reached. This  examination.is. Wt competitive, but  is intended to give a?suiance that  all candidates are fully qualified to  enter on a course o^ study at Ox-  fprd University.' The first candidate from the United States has  already been selected.  In British Columbia the selection  of scholars will be made by a committee consisting of the Lieutenant-  Governor,  tbe Chief Justice, and  THE SALMON INDUSTRY.  A hatchery is now in course of  erection at Seton Lake, three miles  from Lillooet. • It septus advisable  that various kinds, of salmon ova  should be expei-Ljnentijd when completed. There, is the. quala or dog  salmon, the humpback (bone), the  red and the white spring salmon  (quinat), besides the steelhead,  sockeye and silver salmon (cohoe).  Mr. Balpcock, the fisheries commissioner vyh,o is superintending the  erection of the hatchery on being  interviewed on the international  fishery dispute said: "It is. not  clear how regulations, thai will  equally protect the fish in both the  British and American waters can be  brought about.

Tbe benefits tp be derived from such joint  action are so great that the wisdopi  of their, adoption should appeal to  the great interests on both sides of  the Sound. During the last four  years there has been a general consolidation of the canning interests  in both Washington and British  Columbia. They are controlled  and managed by men of commercial prominence to whom the wisdom of joint action to preserve this  great fishery should strongly appeal."  No step should be  left  unturned  cations although he has forms ready.  The Municipal Clerk has received a  litt le over 200, but applications are  coming in very slowly. A similar  state of affairs is reported from several other districts.  A   WELL   KNOWN   ALBANY  MAN.  Recommends Chamberlain's Colic,  Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy.

The failure of the run is  explained by many in that the fish  when entering the river to spawn  four years ago went up on the high  water and left their spawn on the  upper reachbs of the.riv;er when the  water was at its highest stage.  When the spawn was ready to take  to the water, the river had receded,  and the spawn was left to die on  the shore. Old-time cannerymen  recall an instance similar to this in  1878 on the Fraser, when the shores  of Harrison lake and river were  covered with spawn uutil it looked  A/warded £2,750.

SURREY COUNCIL NOTES.  A VATICAN EPISODE.  F. Montague Handley, the American sculptor, tells of an episode  which lie witnessed at the Vatican  GENERAL  NEWS.  Council met in the town hall,  Surrey Centre, Saturday, July 25th,  the Rfeve and nil  members, except  Councilor Wicketshain, being pre-j and which is quoted in The Satur-  sent.  Miwutes of previous meeting were  read and confirmed.  Communications were received as  follows : J*rom H. G. Ross, requesting an extension of the Johnston  road; received and referred to  Councilor Burnett.  Moved by Councilor Johnstori,  seconded by Councilor Burnett,  that the council agree to keep the  ditch dug by the railway company,  on the Johnston rqad, through D.  R. Brown's place, in repair; the  council to stake otjt the ditch, and  the earth to be so placed as to make  a grade for the road; the ditch to be  four feet de§p, eight feet wide at the  top and three feet wick at the bottom.   Carried.  On motion Councilor Burnett  was authorized to purcha-.e two  acres of land from Tiios. Kennedy  for a gravel pit, cost not to exceed  $50 per acre.  The Surrey Highway By-law  passed its first, second and third  readings.  The contract of graveling the  H. P. road, Ward 5, was awarded  to A. J. Peschke. at 95c. ppr rod.  The clerk was instructed to request Messrs. Welsh, ChatUrell and  Ben Stevenson to cut the thistles on  their luijd within five days or the  council will have it dgnp, at their  expense,  The clerk was instructed to make  application to register the tax deeds  tor the N W % Sec 6, Tp 7, the N  # of S E % gee 6 Tp 7 and the N  W % Sec 22 Tp 3, and attend to  serving the necessary notices hi  connection with the same.

Council then adjourned to meet  again on Saturday, August 22nd  at 1 o'clock p. m-  day Evening Post: A young New  Yorker wintering iu Rome had  joined the Circolo di San Pietro, a  club to which most of the young  Roman noblemen belong and whose  object is charity. Shortly after his  admission he was notified that an  audience was to be given by the  Pope to several hundred people on a  certain date, and that his name had  been placed on the list of club  members who would help to receive.  Full dress is always worn at these  audiences, and the club members  wear a Dadge to distinguish them  from the guests. Our young friend  being somewhat of a dandy, added  a few sprays of lilies-of-the-valley to  his costume. Now, it is a strict  rule of the Vatican that no flowers  shall be worn, but of course no one  thought of a "Circolo" man ignoring the fact, and nothing was said  to him. As Leo XIII. appeared,  carried in his big gilded chair, the  receiving-men walked up, as is  their wont, to kiss his hand. When  the New Yorker approached, the  Pope looked admiringly at this fair,  stalwart youth, so unlike his young  Rpmans, and then, noting the forbidden flowers, smiled gently. "We  dp not we^r flowers in the Vatican,  my 'son," he said, taking the offending blossoms as if to cast them  away, but he hesitated, smelled  their fragrant petals, and then,  suddenly changing his mind,- he  returned them to the owner.  "Keep them," he almost whispered, "and may your life be as spotless ag they now are."  A Nanaimo telegram to the Colonist says a well defined movement  is on foot to induce Ralph Smith,  M.P., to desert the federal arem  and contest Nanaimo constituency  for the provincial house at tke approaching elections. The Labor  element is likely to join hands with  the Liberals in the plan, aud it is  understood Mr. Smith has consented to become a candidate.  Ws're  <s?^_?.g_  Very Remarkable Cure of Diarrhoea.  "About six years ago for the first  time in my life I had a sudden and  severe a^ack of diarrhoea," says  Mrs. Alice Miller, of Morgan,  Texas. "I got temporary relief,  but it came back again and again,  and for six long years I have suffered more misery and agony than I  can tell. It was worse than death.  My husband spent hundreds of  dollars for physicians' prescriptions  and treatment without avail. Finally we moved to Bosque county,  our present home, aud one day I  happened to see an advertisement of  Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and  Diarrhoea Remedy with a. testimonial of a man who had been  cured by it. The case was so simi*  lar to my own that I concluded to  try the remedy. The result was  wonderful. J could hardly realize  that I was well again, or Wieve it  could be so after having suffered so  long, but that one bottle of medicine, costing but a few cents, cured  me."   For sale by F. J. MacKenjiip.  HENRY'S NURSERY.  M- J- Henry, nurseryman of  Mount Pleasant, has just received a  letter frpin the exhibition branch of  the department of agriculture at  Ottawa, requesting him to supply  fifteen or twenty boxes of the following varieties of apples: Bayles'  Seedling. Gano, E- Spitzenberg,  Green Newton Pippin, Jonathan,  Sarnjer, Salome, Wismer's Dessert  and York Imperial. This fruit is  to go to the St. Louis Exposition  and should be first class in every  respect. Growers having any of  these varieties should correspond  with Mr. Henry, or write direct to  the department of agriculture at  Ottawa.  The members of the Victoiia  city council are very evenly divided  in the matter of the proposed lease  of the market buildings to the Terminal Railway Company, some ol  the members declaring that the latter has not gained the right of lease-  by meeting conditions. There is at  present a deadlock iu the negotiations.  One hundred and ten cases of  glanders have occurred amongst  horsei in the Boundary country.  Dr. Hopkins, the Dominion veterinary inspector for British Columbia,  left Vancouver on Wednesday to  investigate.  The Grand Trunk Pacific agreement was . igued on Tuesday, and  on Thursday a bill was introduced  in the Dominion house for the construction of a national transcontinental rail wav.  James S. Reed, of Portland, Or.,  representing the Connecticut Fire-  insurance Co.. of Hartford, and  Alexander Bell, the resident agent  in New Westminster, were around  Ladner last week.  The river road is to cross the proposed new rifle range. Lieut,-Col.  Whyte states that it will make the  new rifle range 911 impossibility.  Riflemen are looking for a new site.  WHALES OFF SAANICH.  -  Campers on Saanich Inlet, says  the Victoria Times, were treated to  a somewhat unusual entertainment  last Sunday. A school of about  six whales found their way to tbe  head of the Inlet, and judging from  their antics, they spent a most enjoyable day in those placid waters.  Evidently they were in a remarkably sportive mood, for at times  they threw their entire bodies out  of the water. This, however, interfered considerably withJ£other  sport, fishermen after salmon hav:  ing little luck from the time they  made their appearance.  On Thursday next the Orangemen will have a moonlight excursion to view the fishing fleet, in aid  of the new central hall to be built  at Vancouver.   It will cost $25,000.  Valuable Tvre Saved.  Slight injuries often disable  man and cause several days' loss ot  time and when blood poison develops, sometimes result in the loss  of. a band Or limb. Chamberlain's  Pain Balm is an antiseptic liniment.  When applied to cuts, bruises and  burns it causes them to heal quickly  and without maturation, and prevents any danger of blood poison.

DEATHS   FROM   GLANDERS  A telegram from St. Paul, Minn,  on Tuesday, states that a girl assistant in the laboratory of the state  board-of health is recovering from  an attack of glanders. She became  infected more than a year ago.  Three cases' of glanders among human beings have occurred recently  in this state. Two brothers died  from tbe effects of them, having  taken it from horses owned by one  of them. It was the germs from  these which became innoculated  into the girl.
