C, SATURDAY,   DECEMBER 27, 1902.   u_^r_____»  SLOO a ye_r  A   Four-Cornered   Fight  Anticipated in the  By-Election.  Tuesday night, says the Vancouver Province, was a busy one in  the local political arena, and if all  the plans formed mature, it looks  as if there would be a four-cornered  contest"in.the by-election for Burrard district.  One of the] new candidates will  be a Conservative, 'if the preliminary "arrangement of *a meeting of  members'of that1 party is carried  out; whuV"another "candidate will  be out'to represent assertion of the  Liberals, who declare^ themselves  dissatisfied "with the method "and  choice of the convention, which  was practically unanimous in its  selection of Robert G. MaePhersoii.  Ex-Governor ^Mclnnes m«Kes the  fourth in the quartette—the fourth  although] he was the first to announce himself ingthe field.  All this news developed in the  holding of two meetings last evening, one of the • Conservatives, and  the other of tbe unattached opposition to the choice of the convention.  Representatives of the latter declared to-day that they intend put-  tingja candidate 'in the field—not  because they seriously believe that  their candidate will have any chance  of election, but for the purpose of  dividing the government vote and  registering a complaint against the  convention.  This feature of opposition is one  about which the Conservatives took  pains this morning to make themselves clear.  "We are looking now for a good  man to take the field," said a prominent Conservative, "and if we  cannot get a strong roan—one  whom we think will have a chance  of winning—we will not have any  candidate at all. We are not going to put a candidate ia the field  just for the sake of showing au opposition to Mr. Macpherson. It  will be a good man or nobody.  comparatively easy to build, and  once started, construction will probably materialize in a short time.  The survey has been considerably  impeded by unfavorable weather,  but every oppoitnnity which the  season allows, is being taken to  push the work along. The distance from Liverpool to Ladner is  about 17 miles, the first mentioned  point being the present terminus of  the Great Northern Railway.  NORTH   VICTORIA.  The Colonist states that it is rumored, on behalf apparently of a  bitterly disappointed provincial government, that the return of Mr.  Paterson for North Victoria will be  protested. The result came, it is  added by the Colonist; as "a surprise  to-Mi. Robertson and his immediate friends." Mr." PatersoS's many  friends throughout the Delta extend  congratulations to him on his vic-  ' torioug campaign.  R . R.   SURVEY  TO LADNER.  Tlie News-Adveatiser says : Survey parties are out to locate the  line of the projected railway between Liverpool and Ladner, U  connect by ferry with tlie Victoria  and Sidnay line, The route, along  the bai-k of tie Fru?er jjver,  is.  BENSON'S DREDGE.  Benson's dredge has been tied up  at the Delta cannery for the past  few days. She started around the  point for East Delta, but owing to  the heavy gales, it necessiated her  seeking shelter, but not before  having to cut loose a couple of the  scowm, one being afterwards recovered. It is expected she will go  around the first of the week to do  work for the municipality.  CHRISTMAS   TREE.  On Monday evening the members'of the Methodist Church Sun;  day 'school will hold their annual  Christmas true aud entertainment  in the town hall. A sk/irt program  will be rendered after which Santa  Clans will proceed to distribute-the  presents to the children ofthe Sunday "school. An invitation is" extended to all.    Admission free.  FUNERAL OF MRS. CLARK.  The funeral of Mrs. Peter Clark  took 'place from Ihe family residence last Sunday morning to the  Boundary Bay cemetery. A large  uumber of friend* of tha family attended the last sad rites. Rev.  Thomas Oswald conducted service.  NO LAND GRANT.  Hon. Clifford Sifton in an interview at Toronto, Tuesday, said that  whatever assistance may be given  the Grand Trunk Pacific railway,  it will not take the form of a land  grant.  MEETING OF  PARLIAMENT.  Consequent upon Sir Wilfrid Laur-  ier's detention in the south, parliament will not now likely meet until the last Thursday in February.  HOGS AND MEN.  Deacon  Hardy  used to argue that  a pig it kind at heart,  Aud would show it if it only might  know how to play the part.  And lie said,    "I've   got  a notiou  that by teachin' 'ern a while  They'll give up their greedy crowd-  in' and behave in better style."  So he used to stand aad lecture ere  he let them have their feed,  Pointing out how much more lovely  peace and eoncord are than greed.  He would try to shame the big ones  and he sought to rouse their pride;  He implored them to cease gorging  as they pushed the weak aside.  After long and patient effort Deacos  Hardy dropped his scheme,  And confessed that be had cherished  ,>lbut an idle, futile dream;  "Couldn't teach the critter nothin',"  the gocd deacon sadly said;  "Strong ones rooted out the weak  ones from the trough where they  were fed:  All the talkin',   all the preachin'  didn't seem to help a bit;  They wentcrowdin' in an' chrushin'  an' they cheated an' they fit!  Fut ones wouldn't give up gor_in'  an' then gorgin more agen,  And  I've come to this conclusion :  Hogs are just as bad as men."  —Atlanta Constitution.  Claims to Have Been Always Out of Debt.  Congratulations  The reeve of the municipality of  Cowichan last week while speaking  at a public meeting stated that  Cowichan municipality had the  proud distinction of being the only  one which had been always free of  debt in this province. Well, we  will take his word for it. It is  quite possible the Cowichan man  is not aware that there are other  places or he would not talk like he  has.. Cowichan has an easy thing  compared with the Delta ia building roads, which is one of the largest items. Roads in the Delta will  cost five times as much as in Cowichan. The Delta municipality  does not claim to have b«?en always  out of debt, but for the past few  years has always had a good balance on hand for the next council,  besides spending large sums every  year on road improvements, material, etc., which slone would almost  put Cowichan out of business. The  drainage uid dyking scheme cannot be called a municipal debt.  Besides the Delta we believe there  are several other municipalities  which If not out of debt, are in  good circttmsti-.nces. Did Cowichan ever have any experience  with overdrafts in the first few  year:; of business?  Jos.   A.  Moore  made a visit to  Ladaer yesterday.  Miss Arthur visited with friends  in Westminster this week.  Mr. and. Mrs H. N. Rich visited  Vancouver a few days this week.  The public schools in the Delta  will open on Thursday, January 3.  Mrs D A MoKee returned Wednesday from a visit to the Royal  Cits.  Rumors are in circulation of the  removal of tha poat office to new  quarters.  John Ellis and family have moved to the Anderson farm on tho  Trunk road.  I ipif  Owned by a Local Company.—Outside  Opinion.  LEAVING LADNER.  Mrs. McNeely spent a few days  at Westminster this week with  relatives.  Services will be held in All  Saints Trenant churoh morning  and evening on Sunday.  Rev. I. W. Williamson will hold  his farewell service in the Baptist  church to-morrow eveuing.  John Honeyman and F. T. Gib-  bie of Gulfside were at West_.i_-  ster yesiterdhy on a businers trip.  The billiard table at McClellan'a  barber ehop is proving quite an addition for entertainment during the  long evenings.  On Tuesday next the Trenant  Park Club will entertain k few  friends and re'atives to a masquerade ball ir the town hall.  The residence of W. Livingstone  on Stanley street hae been finisb'ed  and the family moved iota their  riew quarters this week,  Captain Hickey of the Transfer  spent Christmns at Victoria, During his absence Captain Powers  had charge ofthe steamer.  J. B. Elliot, H. J. Kirkland  and  W. J. Leary  have   returned   from  the Skeena  rive:   where tbey went  Kv... W.Williamson, pastor of I tQluok  oyer  the   bui,d|u„  of the  new cannery.  the Baptist cb.ireh in Ladner for  the past year, has accepted a call  to tlie Baptist church in Kamloops  and will leave next week to take  charge of his duties in that city.  Since Mr. an<; Mrs. Williamson  arrived in Ladner they have made  a host of friend who learn with regret their departure. The work cf  the church has improved considerably in the past year and owing to  the efforts of tie pastor, the congregation have 0 new church. In  musical circle' Mr. Williamson took  an active part and was one of the  mainstays of the Ladner Band,  ivhich institution will miss his valued services. It is not definitely  decided as yet as to who will be the  new pastor.  Wishing you a Happy and Prosperous New Year. 20 per cent,  discount to clear toys, books,  games &c, for the young folks at  home. This is a good opportunity  to buy toys cheaply. Don't miss it.  Marshall Snith.  John Olher, M. P. P., returned  . je first of tbe week, after several  days tour >f the North Victoria  constituenc*, where he did good  work in tht interests of T. W. Paterson who vas elected by a. majority of 43.  The rainfall for the past week  has been a record breaker. The  weather for Christmas wae slightly  out ofdate, but still everyone seems  to have enjoyed themselves,  R. J. Lord aud wife, of Point  Roberts, Wash., have moved to  Ladner and taken up their residence in Joseph Jordan's house.  Mr. Lord will likely start up a  business here.   .  FOUND DEAD.  Word was brought to town this  morniug by John Detnetre, of the  finding of the body of a man in a  fishing boat. The boat was drifting  olose to the bank a short distance  up the river and was taken ashore.  As soon as possible Dr. Wilson,  coroner, was notified who went up  to investigate. The man's name is  unknown and from appearances no  foul play is suspected. The body  will be brought to Ladner this afternoon.  Although British Columbia has  but two export mills, the Hastings,  at Vancouver, and the Chear.ainus,  at Chemainus, they have shipped  this year 50,000,000 feet of lumber  to all parts ofthe world. British  Columbia was benefitted to the extent of $1,000,000. The shingle  business continues to be very active;  new mills are constantly going up,  and good cedar limits are continually being secured.  Professor Robertson, Dominion  Dairy Commissioner, during his recent visit to the coast, made some  refernoe to the establishment of  government creameries inaugurated  under the supervision of his deprat-  ment.  It is worthy of note that one of  these creameries is located in Delta  municipality, about three miles from  Ladner.  Comparatively little is heard in  Vancouver of "this institution, but  its existance was recalled to a reporter, during conversation with  Dr. J. W. Bland, well-known to tht  fai mers of this district as an advocate of scientific methods in their  profession.  From information gleaned from  Dr. Bland, sou e idea was conveyed, of the importance of this industry to the farmers of the Delta  c due try.  Tbe creamery is a convenient  trading post. It pays fairly and  j piWitjl -'■»'/ li r the ivilk product of  surrounding farms aud is patronized  by practically all the farmers in the .  district, to whom it is a guarantee  of a steady income, in measure proportioned te the extent of their  trade. Monthly cheques are issued  to patrons, varying In amount from  $35 t° $l-75i aud a direct incentivt  is offered to honest endeavor in tbe  improvement of stock and the  strengthening of herds.  To the new settler the creamery  is an especial boon. In it there is  an element of paternalism, an encouragement to his work. With a  few cows he is assured an income,  with the additional guarantee of  fair treatment.  After the cream is separated, tha  skim milk is returned to patrons,  for feeding purposes, so that tha  farmers have the advantage of a  sure and convenient market, without losing any of the profit, which  might accrue to them from this  source, in handling the milk them*  selves.  The product of the farm dairy il  of course, not susceptible to that  guarantee of quality which tht  creamery can give. Skill will vary  according to the abilities of individuals, and the quality of the batter  will correspond. The government  dairy is superintended by experts,  and its product has a guarantee  that cannot attach to a product  gathered from many quarters.  The creamery in the Delta has  proved such a success that an extension of the plant is contemplated  in the near future. Its product  finds ready sale in Vancouver, Victoria, and adjacent markets. -News-  Advertiser.

FRASER.  •aftMcrlptfcm Price, per year In advance, Ji.oo  SATtfRDAY,   DECEMBER  27,  1902.  The nomination for reeve and  councilors for municipalities will  be held on Monday, January 12th,  and polling will be held on the following Saturday. From the present outlook the reeve and councilors  for Delta will be elected by acclamation as no one seems to be anxious to oppose any one of the  present board. The councilors attend to their work, and if they give  satisfaction to the people there is  00 reason why they should not be  re-elected. Of course it is a hard  proposition to satisfy everybody in  the selection of councilors, but with  the few names which have been  mentioned as possible candidates,  and who hare stated that they will  not run, it is apparent that no groat  kick is forthcoming in ths conducting of the municipal affairs.  It is claimed that the cam patgr\  in North Victoria the past week  was one of the hottest held for some  time. From reports the ttter'ney-  general got some hard cracks, and  owing to the dampness lie contracted a severe cold in Lis pedal tx-  tremeties and went home.  Archbithop Langevtn snys: "The  school question in Mantioba is net  settled. It will be settled only  When right will be done—right  such as was promised to the Cath-  plics ofthe province In 1870 by the  Jmperial authorities.  WOMAN'S FRANCHISE.  The following is the petition to  T. Taylor, M. P. P., circulated by  R. Tapping in favor of women's  franchise ;  "We, the citizens of Revelstoke,  are greatly in favor of the married  ladies being granted the right to  vote in all our municipal elections,  and whereas the married ladies are  interested in the payment of taxes,  street improvements and all matters  pertaining to the good welfare of  the community, more especially in  the school, and the moral improvement of the citizens, therefore we  would urge your government to  make amendment to the municipal  act to grant the wives of all the  men that have a vote in the city  her franchise, also without her being a property or householder.  Trusting your government will  give this matter earnest consideration, your petitioners, etc."  STILL A BACHELOR.

REEVES' CONVENTION.  The reev?s' convention held in  "Westminster on Friday evening  last was an important one and  lasted from 8.30 o'clock till after 2  o'clock next morning. During the  ■session municipal affairs were thoroughly discussed.  Two matters of mora than ordinary interest came up. The first  was that of municipal and provincial tax sales. Some favored the  advancing ofthe rate pf interest on  money paid for lands at tax sales,  but in this connection it was stated  ■that such action could not be taken  without authority from tha Federal  Government. PreaiJent Hawkins  of Matsqui stated that the action of  •$he Provincial Government in  charging 12 par cent, was ultra  vires and that it would not be upheld in any court.  Another sensational incident of  the meeting was the statement by  Reeve Evans of Cowichan that a  wholesale liquor dealer had opened  up business in hie municipality under a trader's license and that he  couldn't be stopped by law. This  brought Reeve Paisley, of Chilliwack, to his feet aud he stated that  such was not the case or if so a  wholesale liquor dealer could also  open for business in Chilliwack,  which is now a prohibition town.  A resolution was passed asking the  government to have the wholesale  liquor trade placed under the liquor  1 license statutes.    •  PURCHASE B.C. COAL CO.  Announcement was mad* Thursday of one of tye largest coal deals  ever completed on the coast, whereby the Western Coal Company, just  organized in jfUan Francisco, becomes the owner and sole proprietor  of all the interests and lands and  coal properties of the "Mew Vancou  ver Coal Mining and Land Company of Vauconiter Island.  The new company ia capitalized  at a. million and a hall dollars, and  the promote! s are all wealthy capitalists, several already interested  in the coal business.

The corn liars must step'aside  for the potato prevaricator of the  Prairie City News, who says : Oue  gentleman claims to have dug  twelve bushels from one hill. Another simply opens a hill, cuts off  enough potato for dinner, then  closes the hill aud lets the potato  keep on growing. A farmer who  had his potato patch on the side  hill had a serious mishap when he  dug them. A large potato rolled  down the hillside, crashed isto the  barn, wrecked the barn and killed  a valuable horse. A citizen of La-  Harpe opened >a hill of potatoes and  five bushele of the tubers ran oat  before he could close the hill.  "These fellows will have to go nway  back and sit down. A Prairie  ■City man claims to bo the champion  "tater" rsissr. He .planted potatoes on "Good Friday." Decoration Day he began eating on a  potato, hollowing it out. He now  uses the shell for a bam, stabling  three cows and six horses. Yon  needn't think his family devoured  the entire inside of this monstrous  tuber, because the gentleman avers  that he fed part of it to his bogs,  fattening three car  loads  of them.  —■£*•      ______   If there's one unsecluded spot,  That I would like to own  And   fence about,   'lis  that  small  plot ••'«  Where my #$$*#&* are s'-oy.'ii. •  GOD BLESS OUR DAD,"  We happens.! in a home the  other night and over the parlor  door saw the legend worked in letters of red. "What is home without a mother ?" Across the room  was another brief desire, "God  bless our home."  Now, what's the matter with  "Goi bless onr dad?" He jtti up  early, boils an egjj, grabs his din  ner pail, and wip03 off tbe dew of  tbe lawn with his boots, while  many a mother is sleeping. He  makes the weekly handout for the  butcher, grocer, milkman, and baker, and his little pile ii badly worn  before he is home an hour. He  stands off the baltff and keeps the  rent paid up. If Johny needs a  new pair of shoes, dad goes down  in his dip and cornea up with the  price of a hard day's sweat. If  Mary needs a new ribbon for her  black hair , if mother yearns for a  wrapper aud baby howls for a rattle, down goes dad agaia and up  comes the coin. But if he buys a  new pipe for a quarter, because the  old one is getting a bit strong, be  is warned that smoking is an expensive habit, and that e_en have  smoked up farm* and blocks and  happy homes.  When a saow strikes the town  dad comes up with the price and  ma goes out with a neijhbor, and  Mary sparks the bean in tbe parlor.  Dad's clothes ere none too good.  and grime will stick, so be siis  in the kitchen with tha kids.  If there is a noise during the  night dad is kicked in the back and  made go' down stairs to find.tl.e  tfurglar and kill him. Mother  darisa the socks, yes, she does ; but  dad bought the socks in the first  place, and the needles and yarn  aiterwatd.i. Mother does up the  fruit, wel-Jj clad bought it all—and  jars and sugar cost like the mischief.
