JRjOO a year   j—i—  Entertained  Friends   on  Tuesday Evening in  Royal  Style.  The town hall on Tuesday evening was the scene of gay festivities,  when the young people ®f the Trenant Park Club gathered to hold  their masquerade dance. Nearly  fifty had on costumes and masks  which were well gotten up to represent the characters they were intended for. Many of the costumes  were exceedingly pretty and as the  youngsters sailed gaily areund the  hall in the various dances they  Were shown off to perfection. The  grand march commenced shortly  after eight o'clock aad dancing  continued until 10.30 when the  masks were removed and it was  then discovered who was who.  Several of tbe smaller children with  their costumes attracted considerable attention, and although young  Were able to accomplish the intricacies of the terpsichorian art much  better than many older people.  A t the unmasking a pleasant  affair took place when Mrs. Thos.  E. Ladner and Mrs. W. H. Ladner were called forward, Gordon  Honeymoon reading tbe following  address:  "Dear President aad Vice-President; In grateful acknowledgement of your untiring kindness to  us eve- -'nee you began our club,  we, tbe members of Trenant Park  Club, beg you kindly to accept  these lamps—tokens of oar love and  appreciation."  The presentation of the two  beautlial piano lamps were then  taker, in hand by Miss Irene Robinson and Winnifred Hutcherson,  who, in a v*ry becoming manner,  handed the preiider. j and vice-president the addressee. Tha presentation was « complete surprise te  both and with words of feeling  thai;'.ed ihe doners kindly for the  beau'.iful presents.  Refreshments bciag served to  the children and visitors, dancing  was continued for a couple of hours  all joining in te complete the evenings enjoyment.  The Trenant Park Club started  lastftummer in • very quite way,  Mrs. Thos. E. Ladner having three  or four children at her residence  teaching them to dance, and from  one to another the 5'onrger generation besieged her to be allowed  to participate, until the pupils numbered such that .it was decided to  form a club, which at present has  a membership of over forty, ranging in ages from eight to sixteen  tears.  Tbe expenses ofthe club is made  up by the members, the officers  giving their services and time gratis  to assist the children to aocomplish  their object,  This is the second time the club  has entertained its friends and the  the way tbe members took their  part Tuesday evening, and the  love and esteem shown to the  officers is apparent from their actions. The happy hours spent  in the meetings will be long remembered by each one as some of  the happieit moments of their lives.  The visitors were chiefly relatives, and all enjoyed the affair as  much, as the younger ones, assisting the club financially.  Mrs. W. H. Ladner was leader  of the orchestra and councilor T. E.  Ladner performed the arduous duties of master of ceremonies.  The following are the names and  costumes represented:  Flossie Thirkle, night; Lillie  Scott, sunflower; Olive DeWolfe,  Japanese lady; Etta Scott, Marguerite; Mabel Thirkle, sailor lass;  Irene Robinson, Winnifred Hutcherson, girls in blue; Crissie Smith,  grandma; Elsie Honeyman, maiden  1815; Minerva Smith, Bo-peep;  Helen Moffit, gypsy; Alice Ladner, queen of hearts; Henrietta  Mason, fairy queen; Myrtle McDonald, fairy; Edith Rich, five-  o'clock tea; Mamie McLellan,  Spanish dancer; Elsie Benson,  maple leaf; Violet Ladner, gypsy;  Rhofla Bain, Scotch lassie; Eva McDonald, Spanish girl; Mrs. T.

CHANGE   OF   POST  OFFICE-  Robert May received official notification Friday of his appointment  as post master for Ladner, to succeed H. N. Rich who resigned a  few weeks ago. Mr. May will  likely take over the post office the  •first of the_week, and remove it to  his place of business on Westham  street.  The post office has been in its  present location for over twenty-  five years. The new quarters will  be iu the centre apartment of the  'Moore blocic, and Mr. May expects  Jo have everything in first-class order in a short time.  Members of the Baptist  Church Bid Farewell  to Their Pastor.  Thursday evening the members  of the Baptist Church gathered at  the residence of Mr. and Mrs. J. F.  Stainton to bid farewell to their  pastor the Rev. I. Williamson and  family, who left the following  morning for Kamloops, where they  will have charge of the Baptist mission. During the evening Mrs.  Stainton read the following address and presented Mr. Williamson with a well filled purse.  Dear Mr. WilUamson: For sometime, we, as members of your  church and congregation liuve  profited by your ministrations.  During your stay among us you  have endeared yourself to ns by  your amiable character, your earnest devotion to duty and the hearty  interest you have ever manifested  in our welfare.  On this tbe eve of your departure for a new field of labor, wo  wish to tender to you some acknowledgement of our appreciation  of your services and ark you to  kindly   accept   this   slight token.  May success follow you in your  new field as in the past.  Wishing you and Mrs. Williamson a happy new year and trusting  that we may again have the pleasure of assisting you in the work of  Our Father and the church.  Mr. Williamson responded and  thanked them for the kind words  and present and would long remember his stay in Ladner with  pleasure.  Many friends in the Delta wish  him every success in his new field  oflabor.  Ernest Campbell of Victoria central school, is visiting friends in  tae East Delta.  FOUND DEAD.  The body of the man found last  Saturday in a fishing boat a short  distance above town, has turned  out to be John Fraser, a man well  up in years. On his person was  found au account from a storekeeper at Eburne, and the sum  of fifty cents, aud in the boat a  full bottle of whisky. On telephoning Eburne, they stated that he  left there about ten days pievious,  nothing having been heard of him  since. He was not well-known  there, nor was anything known of  his relatives.  When found the body was lying  in such a position that it is presumed he lay down to sleep and  with the cold and water in the Doat  it is very probable that death was  caused by exposure.  The body was interred in the  Boundary Bay cemetery.  CHRISTMAS   TREE.  The Methodist Church Sunday  School held their annual Christmas  tree in the town hall on Monday  evening, January 29th.  T. W. Kerr superintendent of  of the Sunday school occupied the  chair. The program rendered by  the children was heartily applauded. After the program Mr. Kerr  was agreeably surprised to receive  a handsome present from the  school. Miss Florence Kirkland  read the address and the presentation was made by Miss Flossie  Thirkle.    Mr. Kerr  in a few well  chosen words thanked tbe school  for the encouragement they had  given him.  Miss Jessie Thirkle who has acted as organist and secretary  of the school for several years  also received a handsome  present. After    Santa    Claus  had done his duty the meeting was closed with the National  Anthem.  A NARROW ESCAPE.  Reave W. H. Ladner and Mrs.  Ladner had a very narrow escape  from a serious accident on Thursday evening by their horse backing  the buggy into the ditch at the corner of the Slough road. They had  just left the residence of Thos. E.  Ladner and the night being exceeding dark they were driving slowly.  At the corner of the Slough road  the horse took a notion to back and  put the rig off the road and into the  ditch in such a position, that the  horse stood straight over the occupants who expected to bechrushed.  The horse, however, fell to one side  and cleared the rig. Mr. Ladner,  with the assistauce of neighbors,  rescued Mrs. Ladner from her perilous position uninjured but badly  frightened. It took two hours to  rescue the horse and rig. Had the  accident happened on the opposite  side of the road, the result would  probably have been fatal to all.  THE SALMON PACK.  The pack of the British Columbia  salmon season of 1902, as compiled  by the Fraser River Canners' Association, is published. The statement gives a complete return  of the year'3 cannery operations and as told before, shows a  big shortage in the totals as compared with those of last year. A  year ago there were 1,236,156 cases  packed in British Columbia, while  this year it will be seen that the  aggregate amounts only to 327,095  for the Fraser river and 298,887  cases for the North, or a total of  625,982 cases. Of this production  over half has been forwarded to the  United Kingdom, the total shipments showing that 386,624 cases  hare thus been disposed of.  John R. Watson and bride returned to Ladner this week, after  their wedding trip to California  and Honolulu, and were the guests  Mr. of and Mrs. H. J. Hutherson.  They returned to Vancouver and  will return shortly to reside in Ladner.  Arthur Parmiter and Bert Arthur  on Tuesday, succeeded in bagging  Seventy ducks and a goose during  a hunt of a few hours. They  should read "Recreation."  Mr. and Mrs. Richard Shirley  entertained a number pf friends od  New Years eve. A very pleasant  time was spent in games and dancing.  Miss C. Granger, Miss C. Lord,  and Miss H. Moffit, all of Vancouver Normal School, spent this week  visting Mrs. Robt. May.  Andrew Clausen returned last  evening from a trip to Seattle end  Sound cities, spending the holidays  with relatives.  Arthur Little, of Moosejaw,  cousin of Dr. Woodhy, and Harry  Smith, of Toronto, are visiting with  the doctor.  Never    Received    Assistance From Any of the  Governments.  In reference to the article which  appeared in last weeks issue taken  from the Vancouver News-Advertiser with regard to the Delta  Creamery being one of the first  creameries to receive government  assistance, we hsve since been creditably informed that such is not the  case. The Delta Creamery has  never received any assistance in  building and equipping the creamery from eithei the dominion or  provincial governments. The money was all furnished by the farmers  in the municipality and a few men  outside of it who were satisfied with  the investment.  The rest of the article is very  favorable to the creamery and if  the farmers in the district will take  the same interest in coming years  us they have hitherto done, there  is no doubt it will continue to be  tha greatest success of any creamery in the province. •  The greatest opposition this  creamery and all other creameries  in the province have jto contend  against is the produce of the cream*  cries in the Northwest, which are  all more or less kept up by the  dominion government, end whose  product is brought ia end Sold at  slaughter prices during the summer months.  BURR—WATERS.  At the residence of the groom's  brother, Harry Burr, a very pleasant g ithering took place Thursday evening, to witness the marriage of John Burr, of Ladner, to  Miss Uzzie Waters, of Hastings,  Sussex Co., England, the ceremony  beins performed by the Rev. Thos.  Oswald. Miss Fanny Burr acted  as bridesmaid, while John B. Elliot , ssisted the groom.  Ti.e ceremony over, congratulations were extended, and the party  joined in doing justice to the excellent lunch prepared for the occasion.  Mr. and Mrs. Burr will reside ia  the Delta.  Mrs. Woodley, of Moosejaw,  Assa., arrived in Ladner Thursday  and is visiting with her son, Dr.  W. J. Woodley. Mrs. Kendall accompanied her mother out from the  east and went to Cloverdale where  her husband, Dr. Kendall,  resides.  David Woods returned from Vancouver yesterday where he com*  pleted the purchase of 160 acres of  land from the B. C. Land & Inves-  ment Company, situated at Boundary Bay.  Miss Crissie Smith entertained •  lumber of her young friends on  Fi day evening. The time waft  pleasently speat in games aad  dancing. Percy Smith and Elsie  Benson carried off the prizes given  for the games.  Miss McDonald of .Westminster  is spending the holidays with Mrs,  R, Shirley.  *>\  t  \  y THE DELTA NEWS, SATURDAY, JANUARY   3,    190j.  ea£_a_*  THE  DELTA NEWS  BY RTG.  A..  PHASER,  Stfliaortption Price, per year in advauee, $1.00  SATURDAY,   JANUARY   3,   1902.  The writ for the by-election in  West Yile district is returnable  January 30th, and no doubt by that  time the government will have the  election brought on. A few of the  papers throughout the province are  making quite a howl because the  date of the election has not been  announced, and incidentally roasting the lieutenant-governor and the  government for that reason. The  election can be brought about before the 30th easily enough and the  writ returned. If it is shown before that date that the government  flo not intend to have an election,  then it is plenty time to kick. We  are aware that very peculiar methods are sometimes used in election  matters, but in this case, while  probably not according to Hoyle,  there is time in the next week or  so to bring on the election. The  writ has been issued and a manda-  tnns can also be made compelling  the goverraent to have the electioa,  therefore West Yale will probably  receive representation in the next  legislative assembly. From all ap-  ■ pearahces the member will be on  the opposition side of the house.  Until near the end of this month it  after all, it is the end that counts.  There is plenty of work for the  temperance reformer, even if he  confines himself within the limits  prescribed by the present license  law; but he is not confined to the  limits. License and prohibition are  not the only alternatives. We  would not be at all surprised to see  before long, the beginning of another movement in the temperance  world, not in the direction of regulation by license; but for the purpose of taking the entire traffic out  of the hands of those who are engaged in it for private gain.—  Woodstock Express.  AGRICULTURE IN B. C.  An OtLawa dispatch says: In the  census bulletin issued lately for  agriculture in British Columbia in  the last decade, potatoes show an  increase of 94.25 per ceat., aud oats  an increase of 42 per cent., while  wheat and barley have remained  about stationary. The total area of  land in crop increased about 49  per cent. The value of the land  rented is $213,216, an average of  £1.02 per acre, or $257 per year lor  the average farm.  A COMPLIMENT.  A popular bishop of the Episcopal church in the far west stayed a  few days with a ranchman. When  the bishop left, his host shook him  warmly by the hand and said:  I "Bishop, we all like you out here ;  Is'not necessary to get in Buch a you are not stuck up, and you are  State of excitement as some are no blooming aristocrat.

It is published that Canada, even  Canada, has the presumption to  think of building another transcontinental railway. Carry the news  to Ruclyard Kipling who doomed  Canada for a generation to be regarded in England as "Our Lady  ofthe Snows." Carry the news to  those who predicted that the Canadian Pacific was built a century in  advance of the needs ofthe territory  it traversed. Carry the news to the  thousands whose descendants will  yet see the Canadian Northwest the  home of fifty millions of people.  Carry the news to American capitalists whose money has already started the development of Canada's  manufacturing possibilities, and for  whom another railway will mean  the opening ol a new empire to become as truly American as many  paits of the United States.  Canada'has already 17,000 miles  of railways that cost nearly $900,-  ooOjOoo. She has tlie longest con-  tiii.uo«s stretch of internal navigation in the world. She has 70miles  cf canals; 10,000 post offices; 30,-  000 miles of telegraph wire; 18,000  pub'ic schools; 60,000 men in her  lu_ber camps in winter; 17 universities and over 50 colleges; only 15  per cent, of illiterates; a river over  2000 miles long; 6,0,00,000 people,  of whom nearly 90 per cent, are  Canadian born and only 3 per cent,  foreign born, the remainder being  British born. Canada ranks fourth  in the production of gold; has a  million square miles of practically  unexplored territory; coal beds that  will yield over 4,000,000 tons yearly  for 5000 years; and a capital debt  nearly twice that of the United  States.  Canada is one of the most fortunately situated countries—politically  —in the world. She is bounded on  the east and west by the Monroe  doctrine; on the north by the impregnable barrier of eternal ice; on  the south by a neighbor that wishes  her well and is giving of her millions as pledges of friendly treatment. She uas no more need of a  navy than for another north pole;  little more use for an army than  Hudson Bay has for an awning.  Her peace is guaranteed an unavoidable circumstance. Her destiny is to aid us in feeding and  clothing the world; to build up a  nation of liberty loving people; to  develop her tremendous natural resources with the help of American  millions in new and in transplanted  industries. The United States is  net precisely an effete country a>  yet. But the surprises in ills-  couveries of vast, material wealth in  natural deposits of coal, iron, copper, silver and gold arc of our past  mainly. In Canada they are only  beginning. Merely the fringe of  £h.at vast JjtrrJterjr portli of us has  been examined closely. It is the  greatest oyster remaining in the  world, barring only Russia, and  Americans are to have a larger  share in prying off the upper shell  and partaking of the meat beneath.  —Detroit Journal.  The new Canadian silver coins,  bearing King Edward's head, in  place of the familiar head of the  late queen, have found their way  into general circulation out west.  The five cent pseces are being recalled as rapidly as possible and  will soon become valuable to collectors of curios.
