C, SATURpAY,   HARCH 7, 1903.  $1.00 a year  ID I I -M  The Delta Farmers'  In-  >})   stitute is a Dead Number   -..cording   to   the  Deputy Minister.  v/    At a meeting of the Central Farmers' Institute held at Victoria this;  wee*;,   matters   pertaining   to the  iDelta Institute were discussed.  p,    Mr. Ladner presented   a   letter  I »from the Delta Farmers' Institute,  which he submitted aa his credentials.  The  _e$_*Sy minister held that  tht Delta Farmers'  Institute had  been suspended.    That organization had been dead   for  a  year.;  t'The letter could not,  therefore, be  {'-regarded as   a   proper credential.  (e was simply actin g in accordance!  "with the act.  Mr. Ladner urged that the Del-  U'ta Institute had   _ected -fficers .in  )accordance   with" •febe regulations,.'  i,md he had been sent-as a .epresen-  | .ative.    The meeting   was called,:  he .onsidered,  for  the purpose ot"  transacting   next year's 'business.'  I'Sis  institute   was   otganized   for  fuhe coming year.  p Considerable discussion ensued,  |vfter which a motion was brought  I in by Mr. Duncan and Harris that  Ir. Ladner be allowed to take his  Beat,  j Thos. Brydon held that while he(  id not wish Mr. Ladner to be derived of his seat, the  Delta Insti-  8jkutt being dead he could I _ot favor  | ihe resolution.  Mr. Mathesfdn thought they  hould not be too tight laced in the  (natter, and Mr. Ladner should be  ,«|iven a seat.  'A Capt. Stewart thought that the  'elta Institute haying been revived  it should be encouraged.  -  A vote being taken the motion  , vas carried, and Mr. "Ladaer took  lis seat at the board.  The committee appointed to con-  | "ider the report of the Sapeiinten-  lent of Institutes reported as fol-  pws:  j Your committee appointed to re-  jort on the address ofthe Siiplrin-,  endent of Institutes, beg to report  I hat we are of the opinion that the  \ ecommendation <of the Superintetf-  .ent anent: ist. Greater efficiency  if secretaries of local Institutes in  he matter of making out reports of  neetings will,  if carried   out,   re  ound to the advantage of-not only  _e local Institutes affected, but -al-j  *>  the  Institutes at  large.   2nd  "hat we believe tha,t ff a more effi  ,ient  canvass  fot   members,  was  Made,  the   membership would be  ery largely increased.   3rd.   We  irould recommend 'that an effort be  lade looking   to thf. resuscitation  f the 'institute   at Salmon Arm.  th.   We learn with Ipfeasu-re that  |,Ion. C. S. Smith and _>r. Withy-  imbe _re to _ddre_sl_teinstitutes,  and also that competent stock  judges are to be provided for the  fairs this fall.  This is the first intimation the  Delta people have bad that the institute here was dead.- Last year  and this year officers were elected  and dues paid by the-members,  and while the deputy-minister may  have been a little officious, and considering his antipathy to this section, the members ofthe Delta Institute will overlook his remarks.  It is the custom of the Central  Institute to send through the country each year, men to address the  farmers on matters pertaining to  this industry. Last year the notice  was sent to Delta so late that it was.  impossible to meet *he speakers  which were sent her., and they:  went awfc'y not oVerly impressed  with-their reception, and probably  on this account the Delta Institute  was suspended, as the deputy-min-:  ister tries to make out.  But besides this, the deputy-minister objected, so we learn, on account of Mr. Ladnet's credentials  not being made out on printed  forms sent for that purpose. Otherwise they were perfectly correct.  A very small matter indeed to raise  an objection over.  The reason that little interest was  taken in, the past, in some cases  very inferior men have come aud  expounded on dairying, stock,  poultry -and digging ditches, which  have made them the laughing  stock of txperierfced men on 'the  Delta flats. A great tnariy humorous stories are told of The arguments and answers to 'questions-  given "by'ih est men, _nd probably  if the 'agricultural department  woiild look after the matter more  carefully, the Delta Institute Would  not be dead, and others which are  beginning to waver, would take up:  the work of the institute with more  enthusiasm and bring that department out of the rut into which it  has fallen.  Tbe Delta institute is not dead  by any means, it is only the employees of the department who,are  sleeping. .    .  — — 1 t  ■CHINESE TAX.  . An Ottawa dispatch says : Al-  thdugh Setfator TetHpleman has  been here only two days, he has already redeemed the 'promise he  made, on behalf of the Federal  Government, to the electors of Burrard, regarding Chinese immigration.  As soon as he arrived here, Senator Templeman laid his views on  Chinese and Japanese immigration  before his colleagues. He represented the desire of British Columbia regarding Oriental immigration  so strongly that it is announced  that he has convinced the other  members of the Cabinet.  It is announced this afternoon  that at the forthcoming session legislation will be introduced increasing the head tax on Chinese to  $500.  It is announced that the question  of Japanese immigration will also  be dealt with.  A meeting of prominent Toronto  citizfcns headed by Rev. Canon  Welch, has decided to form a joint  stock company with a $100,000  capital, to take prompt action towards opening places of resort and  recreation for people, where refreshments 'can be had without selling,  liquors. 'The first place of ths kind  is to-be'drjened without delay.  1  111 ir  Roadbed Work Far Advanced. Tracklaying  Will be Commenced at  Once and Rushed.  It „ very satisfactory (to the residents of the Delta Municipality to  note the way in which "the contract  tors are rushing the work on the:  railway to completion. In the few  weeks they have been at work they  have finished the roadbed from  Port Guichon to Clovetaalle, _ distance of about seventeen _tihes. In  a week Or two all tbfc necessary  bridges and culverts will be completed. The tressle work at Port  Guichon is quite a piece of work,  it is well and substantially built, is  a credit to tbe engineers and 'contractors and is practically ready for  the rails as far as the dyke. As  soon as it Is built but to the water  tbe c-mpany intends building _  large Wharf about 400 feet long,  with a mole'to allow the barge to  take the cars on board, and ah'additional slip for the passengers-coming off tbe train..  The first cargo of rails arrived on  Thursday, and as soon as the tracklayers have the rails laid for a short  distance an engine will be put on  and the work of laying the track  will soon be completed as _ir as  Cloverdale.  We understand tha*t the spur  fiom here to South Westminster is  not going to be commenced at pres^  ent, so that passengers wishing to  travel by -this line "to Westminster  or Vancouver will be obliged to go  by way of Cloverdale which seems  rather a Tound about way and not  likely to encourage travel by that  method. Perhaps when the Westminster bridge is completed the  railway -company may then build  that portion of the line.  From all appearances we think,  the people of Victoria may rest sat*  isfied that they will see the first lot  of cars in Victoria before the stipulated time.  A NEW SEINE.  Salmon fishing in frugetSonnd  waters this year will be conducted  on a different plaa than it has usually been in the past. Fishermen  have combined for the purpose of  reducing the cost of the raw product, and by a new plan it is hoped  to land fish at the canneries at a  cost of not more than 7 cents.. A  new fish seine, which is claimed will  take more ot the salmon than anything ever used, is being put into  general use at a majority of the  fishing grounds in local waters, and  some have been ordered for British  Columbia.  The management   of the   affair  has been placed in the hands of  Charles L. Wadhains. The new-  scheme consists of a seine arranged  with numerous pockets, according  to the size to be sunk. It is held  close to the surface of the water by,  a series of buoys,, and lowered to  and depth desired. The entire apparatus is composed of webbing,  and.the parts are held in proper  position when towed through the  water by friction. The arrangement is such that the least resistance is encountered. The distended  portions of the net are further augmented by an anchor attached to  the centre of the back ends of tbe  pockets.  THE PRICE OF FISH.  » if ——  No arrangements have as yet  been perfected between the canneries and the fishermen, as to the  price of fish for 1903.  The Japanese, who are supposed  this year to be working with the  white fishermen, purposed holding  a meeting last Sunday, to elect a  deputation to act with a deputation  ofthe white fishermen, in discussing the matter with the canners.  The death of the Japanese secretary, however, prevented the meeting being held.  It is said that the white fishermen  will hold a meeting'to-day to elect  their representatives to the proposed conference, and that the Japs  will also hold a meeting in the near  future fdr a similar purpose.  It is probable that the conference  between the parties'will take place  next Week, and as a res_lt "it is  hoped that a modus vivendi will be  arrived at, which will be satisfactory Ho all.  HOPE'S ANNIVERSARY.  The 25th anniversary of'fhe Cor-  ination of Pope Leo XIII, was cel-  brated at Rome, "Tuesday, with all  the grandeur dnd impressiteness  associated with the high ceremonies  of the<C_thoIic Church, ahd amid a  display of enthusiasm and emotion  on thfe part of the vast assemblage  gathered within the walls of St.  Peter's, such as vied with the  greatest of previous demonststra  tions of reverence and affection for  the aged Pontiff. During the  night all the sacred edifices in  Rome, monasteries, convents, seminaries, and also many private  houses were illuminated in com-  meratlbn of the event, the T6"fste-  vere Quarter and the Leonline City  especially presenting a blaze of  light, while the general effect was  heiglitened-bythe burning of Bengal fifes throughout the city.  I.'O. O. F. BALL.  Delta Lodge No. 2f, of the Independent Order of Oddfellows will  entertain their friends at theif annual ball in the town hall, Ladner,  on Friday "evening, March 13th.  From past experience with this order the public may be assured of  an evening's enjoyment which will  be long remembered, arid the committee, composed of F. J. MacKenzie,: W. A. Kirkland and A. Par-  miter, means that nothing will be  left undone to help towards the  pleasure of the guests. Supper will  be served by W. H. Smith.  The music will be supplied by  Harpur's orchestra, of Vancouver.  The grand march will commence  at 8:30 p. tn.  lira i ran.  Several Tenders Were  Received. Notes ofthe  Doings of the Municipal Council.  The tenders for the $3,200 dyking bonds were opened last week.  H; N. Rich's tender for $3,301 being accepted, being a little over 103  per cent. The other tenders were:  F. W. Howay, $3,216; Ellis Ladner, $3,200; and Mrs. D. B. Grant,  $2,060. The latter tender was for  $2,000 of the amount.  A. B. Dixon, clerk of Richmond  municipality, has written, refusing  to pay the costs of the burial of the  late Thomas Fraser, who was found  dead several weeks ago near Lad-1  ner. The bill has been forwarded  to the attorney-general.  Reeve Ladner will bring in an  amendment to the Liquor License  by-law at to-day's meeting of the  council, making it a penal offence  for one person to pay for another's  drink or for the bartender serving  same. This is understood to stop  the treating habit which is so prevalent. It will not effect the members of the council.  T_e Tailway contractors have  been notified not to interfere with  the dyke or drainage ditches until  such time as the railway company  enter into a satisfactory rgreement.  Benson's d redge will be:'sent to  the Harlock cannery shortly, to  work on the landing.  R. Shirley, who had the contract  for building three bridges across  the drainage ditch in the East Del  ta, has completed the work.  COURT OF ^REVISION.  A couf t of Revision for the  Provincial voters'  list for New West  minster City and Dewdney, Rich  _ond and Delta ridings 'of West  minster Electofial District; will be  held ttt tbe   Court   House,   New  Westminster,   on  May 4th,  at id  a. m.   PASSED AWAY-.  Mrs; Willia'm Goudy passed  away, at her home, four miles from  Ladner, last Monday noon, from  heart failure. For the past few  weeks she had been more or less  Indisposed, and, although hef condition was not considered sefious,  the news of her death came as a  surprise to her friends arid acquaintances.  She had been married to Mr.  Goudy only five days. She was  formerly married to J. J. Blake,  first city solicitor of Vancouver,  who died a few years ago, and before that was married to A. Fawcett, who was burned to death in  the great fire at Vancouver. Tw6  grown up children survive her, a  son and a daughter. The deceased  was about forty yetfrs of age. He'r  son wa's'ih-httertdance at her death-  'bed, and her daughter. Miss Faw-  cettVof WestifaiHster, arrived on the  afternoon boat.  The husband _nd children hav*  the-sympathy ofthe community in  their bereavemont. • ■  . - .  the funeral was held Wednesday afternoon to Boundary Bay  cemetery, alarg. _umb«r attendiflg.  TO -BE OR NOT '#0 %E>  In otff __t M&we^au-a'the attention of tbe arithofltfes and th»?  public generally to tie fact that  gambling and kindred vices were  being carried on openly in 'Chintf-  town. We supposed that when attention Was directed to this matter  steps would be taken to suppress  the games and have the offender,  pnnished, but it has not been done.  Further information received has  developed a worse state of affairs.  The Chinese proprietors have hired  gamblers to deal and take part ia  the games, »nd last Saturday even*-  ing one of the "tyhee" proprietors  cautioned the players against, making too much noise, as there was  "hiyu" talk in the newspapers,  and b*. had received a "hunch'*  from ay^mgn ia town,—giving his  name.-.- 'It is quite evident that the  authorities in the Delta have no de"1-  sire to suppress the gambling and  whisky drinking going on ; i_i  Chinatown, as during the past  week ample opportunity "has been  given to make a raid and dean oat  this "plagae spot." The ' __ifleie  do not seem to be the least afraid,  and carry on the business with impunity.  Should a white maw attempt to do  the same as the Chinese are doingv  such an agitation would be raised  that he would be immediately  pounced upon by the authorities  and be given the full extent of the  law. Is it a greater crime for a  white man to run a gambling and  whisky den, than it is -for a Chinaman ?  A few weeks ag6 slot machines  were running in the. Delta, And the  parties having same were given the  tip to remove thefll. Why don't  the municipal council also demonstrate their authority in this matter?  The contract for building the slip  to connect the Cloverdale^Port  Guichon Railway, now building,  with the ferry which is to operate  between Pott Guichon and Sidney,  has been let to P. Vance, of Vancouver; Piling for the wori will  be commenced immediately.  H. D. Benson returned home  from Victoria yesterday and re1  ports Mrs. Benson, who is in the  Jubilee Hospital, as very much improved in health.  D. Black will shortly move frrj_.  town to tfie old Powell fancfl near  Gulfside, having mad* a deal with  P. McKenzie for his interest,  A meeting of the Delta Licensing Board will be held in the council chambers, Wednesday, March  11th, 1903, at 2:30 p. m.

FRASER,  Editor and Proprietor,  SATURDAY,   MARCH   7,   IQ02.  WEST YALE.  The election of former Premier  Chas. A. Semlin in West Yale yesterday—he having opposed Dr.  Sanson's candidature as an unqualified and uncompromising opponent  of the Prior government and all its  work—but further emphasizes tbe  hopeless position of the administra-  / tion, and the virtual certainty of  its downfall so soon as it shall meet  the legislature, one month hence at  the furthest postponement of the in*  evitable. It also once more sets  the politicians busily at work with  pencil and paper calculating as [to  present standing of the members in  Jheir relation to the governneut,  which calculations even with the  most liberal concessions do' not  give Premier Prior even a Dare majority in the house.—Vancouver  World.'  SIR CHARLES TUPPER.  In an article in the Toronto  "News" referring to the contest in  North Ontario, in which G. E.  Foster is the Conservative candidate  there is an incidental reference to  the veteran Conservative, Sir Charles Tupper, which, wh:!e showing  appreciation of the great Nova  Scotir.n's services to Canada, is the  more pleasing as coming from the  pen of J. S. Willison, the late editor of the Toronto "Globe." The  following is an extract of the article by the "News" to which we  refer:  It is for the moment the fashion  to depreciate tbe aged Nova Fcotian  but history will give him a great  place in the story of confederated  Canada. With all his faults lie  was essentially a policy-maker and  constructive statesma 1. His work  was done when the country needed  builders, and it was done boldly  and courageously; The party  which he helped t creat - will never  be content with t te mare business  of attack and criticism, and whatever legitimate pride it may have  had in the past, it must look for a  future in keeping with its traditions. . . . There is surely  something higher in politics than  office-holding or office-seeking, and  something nobler in government  than the distribution of patronage.  But, beyond all this, if only to do  the work of a critic, for which he  has such exceptional qualifications,  Mr. Foster should be in parliament,  and, tl erefore, we should like to  see the Conseavative leaders go into North Ontario and make a  united and determined effort to secure his election.

With the progress cf  ,the work is quits certain of having  trains running connecting with the  ferry steamer at Port Guichon by  the 10th of May.  R. C. Clute, K. C, who was  chairman of the Royal Commission,  is in favor of excluding both Chinese and Japanese, aud his report  favored the imposition of a tax of  $500 per head on all arrivals.  Vancouver assay office handled 69,-  925 ounces of gold, valued at jf i,-  153,014 for last year. Of this  $824,125 was from Yukoi, $284,-  401 from B.

The work  of this assbciation if properly carried on will be able to do a great  deal of good for the mining industry  of British Columbia.  Russell Sage, the New York millionaire, has just purchased a red  end green talking parrot, which  hangs up in a cage in his library.  The bird was ordered by the family  physician, as a device for entertaining Mr. Sage when he finds it difficult to rest from his daily toil.

SCHOOL BOOKS.  The Revelstoke school board has  addressed to the different school  boards throughout the province, a  circular asking their co-operation  towards bringing into effect the  government printing of school  books. Following is the resolution adopted by the local board:—  "That in view of the excessive  outlay for books, being a heavy  tax upon parents, that this board  correspond with the trustees of  other towns in British Columbia,  asking them to co-operate in petitioning the Board of Education  through their respective representatives to have the government at  Victoria utilize the people's printing and binding plant for the purpose of printing and publishing all  the books possible; the same to be  furnished pupils at nominal cost,—  and also the School Act be amended by omitting from clause 36, lines  10 and 11 and to provide text books  for indigent pupils and to read ■' 'to  provide school books at nominal  cost to all pupils."—Mai:  The Terminal Railway Company  has notified the city council, ot Victoria, of its intention to run its  track through the market building.  The city council, not being quite  assured as to the legal aspect of the,  matter, will ask for plans ofthe  proposed extension.  ADVICE TO "KICKERS."

SATURDAY,  IOC  fc  1  I  r teresting Debate at the  Presbytery Meeting at  l_€velstoke Last Week.  Favorable to Union.  The Kootenay Mail, Revehtoke,  ,_ays: At close of Presbytery meeting here last week Rev. D. G.  Cambell considered they should  place themselves (Oii record with  ■regard to Other branches of tl e  church. TIie|nu_ber| of different  branches of the protectant ekurch  in Cat i ad a was a matter pf r- et.  All these divisions wer. ?pi< to  - the country and to its lite ;r..' . d  no business to be there at all. He  intended to work to remove tl cse  ■difference's as far as ccvujd be re-  tnoved-. 'These divisions wtre  largely a toatter :vot .hereditary; jre~  judice. It-_ad been said there w a.  no reason why they could .not utile  the Methodist, Presbyterian, a- d  Congregational churches. He did  not see why they should not include the Episcopal. He was in  sympathy with Episcopal church.  He had no scruples against submission to the government qf a bishop.  'The jfetho st I-Tpiscoral church o1  the United States was governed by  Tiishopv and the best on the cot tin-  «nt. Inltheir ovra church they had  all shades of belief. Their 'church  government required fievision.  Their sta dards were out of date.  Take the Confession of Faith and  put it honorably and reverently on  the s-.hv- (laughter). Their'cater  chism had gone out of nearly 111  their schools. It would be a great  benefit t the Presbyterian c'.l i ich  to have ii_w catechism. T e < if-  fetent churches should combine to  devise a sysfemqurider which Hey  could work together.

Prof. R. A. Craig, ofthe Indiana  experiment station, in a rress bulletin on mange, or T< xas itch  among horses, says:  This is a disease of hor-es corresponding to scab among sheep. It  has been reported occasionally t'ur-  ing the past year from various  part6 of the state. The majority of  these reports have slow the disease ts be in western I orses recently brought to the state and in  natives that have contracted the  trouble from them.  The disease is due to a a small  parasite, or itch mite, that effects  horses only, and the disease s  spread by the animals coming in  contact or by being pi ced in  stables where effected animals have  been, or from using harness of blankets that have been used on dis-  -eased animals.  i  The earliest symptom is the intense itching as shown \ the im-  imal rubbing against tie-, '.<• res,  sides of the stall, or biting the part.  Blanketing the animal increases the  irritation. The affectation usually  begins with some small patch nnd  gradually extends over • the body.  If the skin be examined carefully it  Will be found to be reddened; there  will be numerous small elevations  like pimples and the hair will show  matting. Crusts form, the hair  talis out, leaving large dry patches.  In extensive infection, the skin becomes thickened and remarkably  rigid* The animals lose flesh and  become generally debilitated and  some may die.  The disease responds to treatment very promptly. Strong solutions ;of; any of the sheep dips,  especially the creolin like or coal tar  preparations as zenoleum or chlor-  onaptholeu n, or the tobacco extracts, will soon arrest ir. The  washing should be thorough and  repeated once a w.ek until well.  The harness, stalls, etc., will need  to be washed with a similar solution to .pfeVent "reinfection.  SAFE TRAVELLING.  Not a single passenger was killed  on a Britis h railway in iqoi. In  the United States the number of  passengers killed in that year was  2t. T year was not at exceptional one,.either. The loss of life  on'British-railways is always small  compared with what it is in America.. Efficiency seem- to be the  point aimed at there, rather than  immediate profits. It would be  well for t e United ^'ates and Canadian railways to cease sneering at  wha't they call the slow-going  methods of the Old Country, and  adopt the working system which  has acco.iip,i-he such results in  li    savin.

It is said that an .clitor recently  announced that for just one issue  he would tell the truth, the whole  truth, riaked and unvarnished.  Here is. one from that issue.  "Married.—I£iss»SyI.via Smith to  James'Carnation, last Saturday, at  the baptist parsonage." The bride-  is "a very ordinary girl about town,  who.doesn't know any more than  _ r3-bit _bout cooking, and never  helped her poor mother three days  iiti he'r life. She is not a beauty by  :i Tbng shot,'and has      ;. a     like ;i  Our repoetei  shop the other  by the boss a I  boy like this:  a- in the butcher  !n.i and was startled  essing the delivery  'Gel a move on you,  be lively.

"All right, sir,''' replied the boy, "just as quick as I  saw Pete Blackmer's legs off."—  Peterson Patriot.  Rev. Stewart said union wa> the  only solution-bf the church in the  .■West, but he _id not see how they  could come to an agreement with  the Episcopal 'church. There were  tio obstacles to th. union of Metb-  cdists and Congregationalists. J(  they would devote their attention  to this question he believed in five  to ten years they would not hear  the word ."Methodist'' or "Presbyterian." He would like to see the  tttind ofthe Presbytery brought before the chief court of the church.  Rev. Whyte agreed'heartily with  •what Rev. jCamb^'/said,., In Peach-  land they bad four or five diferent  •denominatians, but they bad combined in one society.  Rev. Cra^v said the majority of  people and ministers of the west  favored the views' expressed, but  the .majority of members ,of lhe  General Assembly did not see it as  they saw it.  On motion of R.v. Muir, it was  resolved that Presbytery record itself in favor of union of various  branches ofthe prttfestant church,  aud that a committee be appointed  'to report the next __eting.
