M WESTMINSTER K  Price of Produce.—Hap-  penings of The Week  at the Royal City.  The weekly market held here on  Friday was but an average oue.  There was little change from the  prices quoted last week. The features ofthe day were the large supply of potatoes and the drop in the  price of butter. Young broilers  were offered for the first time and  brought a.good price. The supply  of meats was average while prices  were inclined to drop.

New Westminster's athlete representatives were victorious in every  contest in which titer entered on  that day, the senior lacrosse team!  defeated tbe Victoria team on their  own grounds twelve goals to one,  the Intermediates winning from the  Vancouver team at Brockton Point  by five goals to three and the New  Westminster Base-BaU nine proving  the victors in the match with the  Chilliwick team at Harrison with  the handsome score of seventeen  runs to one.  The city council are protesting  vigorously against the attempt of  the C, P. R. to get a crown grant of  that part of the water front which  they sow occupy audforwh&h they  have always paid rente! to the city.  Tbe steamer Favorite which will  shortly be placed on the Westmin-  steoMotrat Lehman run was suooes-  fully launched on Saturday. She  was towed around to Vancouver on  Tuesday to receive her machinery.  The annual inspection ofthe local  militia crops was held on Friday  .afternoon when they sustained their  reputation of being one of the most  ^efficient militia companies in  ^Canada.  Several deaths occured in the city  this week including Susan Gardner  a resident of Hope and William  Blench a native of Boston.  Fernie Disaster.  ■J— "SW  Last Thursday at 7,30 p. m. a  most appalling pottery disaster oc-  CKU-ed at Rtrnfe B. C, The number  0/men doomed to death was about  150. Seme of tbe men had recently arrived from Nanaimo. The  rescue work devolved 0n English speaking miners, the Slavs having proven themMtoes inhuman,  fl#ou»**i aM i$*er»nt,  MUD BAY PICNIC.  The people of Mud Bay and Delta  held their annual picnic on Saturday, at Blackie's Spit. Quite a  number from Ladner being in attendance. There has scarcely been  a break in holding this 24th of  May reunion since it was organised  in 1880 and as the weather was  propitious there was a good turnout  of settlers, young and old. Over 350  found their way to the rendezvous  via road or water, and many came  from more distant places such as  Vancouver, New Westminster,  Tynehead, Blaine and Surrey Center. The unrivalled beach was the  scene of a happy throng.  A football match, Delta vs. Mud  Bay, was the first event, the teams  being captained respectively by Jno.  Oliver, M. P. P„ and W. McBride.  The former won, but the scorer lost  all track of the number of goals.  Dinner was served about noon, a  series of long tables being laid to  accommodate all, and after the  sumptuous repast Mr. Oliver produced his customary bushel of candy  and oranges which he distributed  among the little folk.  The afternoon was given up to  games and sports. Delta heat Mud  Bay at baseball, after a hard struggle, and then Mud Bay got even by  winning the tug-of-war. Foot races  and feaating, etc, made the time  pass quickly and the party broke  up about S'.jo o'clock.  Capt Hatt, who is now in his  86th year., was a« young as enost of  those only half his age, and he  made St his business to see .every-:  one happy. Has sloop, and the sailing skiff of Mr. C. H. Clow were  much patronized.  A hearty vote of thanks was accorded Mr. Gordon who occupies  the picnic jground, and who, with  his fiamiiy made the visitors welcome.  STEVESTON'S  CELEBRATION  Peace in Sight.  A London despatch of Thursday  says? The Government leader announced in the House of Commons  to-day, that he hoped to be able on  Monday next to announce the result  of tbe peace negotiations in South  Africa. He added: "I cannot, however, be absolutely certain of being  in a position to do so, so that until  th* statement can be made I do not  think it expedient to take up the  budget."  The Cabinet last night sat about  ten hours. It is generally accepted  that the session sufficed to put tfie  final touches on the agreement  which will terminate the war.  Ladner Trotter.  Jos. Jordan returned from Vancouver Saturday, having been in  attendance at the race meet on Friday. In the harness race one of the  papers says: "Mr. Jordan's handsome black stallion, ' Stormont  Junior,* though manifestly out oi  condition, gave evidence of both  speed and gameness. He had the  misfortune to lose two shoes during  the race. This horse should be  placed in a competent trainer's hands  and given the care and track attention his merits entitle him to.  Well Attended.—Ladner  Dramatic  Society-  Success.  Last Saturday was Queen's  weather Sure enough, and as such,  left Ladner rather quiet. Almost  every person was out of town.  Many went over to Steveston in the  morning, more again in the afternoon, while others went to the cities,  or on private picnic's but the Sock-  eye town claimed the majority of  Ladner's holiday makers. The  sports at Steveston were a great success.  The presentation of "The Rough  Diamond" and -"Ici on Parle Fran-  cias" in the evening by the Ladner  Dramatic Society was certainly  much appreciated in the Sockeye  town. The company excelled  themselves that evening and the  audience was highly delighted with  the entertaining qualities of the  troupe. However they were not  the only ones that appeared content  with the result of the evening. The  receipts at the door amounted to  $100.30, enough to make the management smile with satisfaction.  After all expenses are paid the  Dramatic Society will be able to present a nice tidy little cheque to the  band, which helped them during  the performance here and at Steveston . The company have not yet  decided as to whether they will  drop these two pretty little plays or  show them at some other place or  undertake the work of getting up  another play or two.  CHILDREN'S DAY.  Yesterday was the best day Delta  has enjoyed for v any a moon. It  was May Day ■celebration, and old  and,young went to Boundary Bay  to take part in a picnic, which consisted in a general feast aud children's sports.  Thursday it rained and there was  every appearance of having the  same weather the following day.  About eight o'clock the children!  began to gather heavily laden with  baskets of provisions. About nine  o'clock the Ladner Cornet Band  headed the procession out the  Slough road for the appointed sporting ground. About thirty rigs in all  some were hay-racks packed, loaded with the life and merriment, the  youth and beauty of the Delta.  Arriving at the bay the business  of the day began. Well filled baskets  were opened, the children sat around  on the grass and partook ofthe good  things provided. Next came the  parents and the young people.  At the call of the baud all collected in the open field to run races.  Theremainderofthechildren'ssports  were delayed until after the football  matches, but by that time nearly all  the people had gone home.  Previous to going home the children were all lined up when candies  and oranges were distributed among  them. This ended the day of sports.  DREDGE AT WORK.  Lord Pauncefote, British Ambassador to the United States, died on  the morning of May 24th at Washington,  The Band Ball.  The Ladner Cornet Band decided  that a dance would be a good wind-  up to the May Day celebration, consequently the town hall was secured  and a Vancouver orchestra arrived  on the afternoon boat. The mazy  whirl began about 9.30 and was  kept up with a vigor, for which,the  Delta dancers are. noted, * About  midnight all adjourned* to W. H.  Smith's restaurant where a magnificent supper was served. The  dance was then continued until  about three o'clock.  At last the King Edward dredge  has arrived at the landing  The dredge is busily engaged in  cutting a much needed channel in  front of the wharf, having tegun  work opposite the Delta cannery,  and cutting westward.  The debris is conveyed to thepen-  insular in front of the cannery,  through large pipes 'laid on seows.  Captain De Beek expect* to  have this place in first class  shape in a short time and will then  remove a portion ofthe island which  is forming and causing trouble at  Guichon. After this work is finished, which is expected to take four  weeks, the dredge will lie taken to  Victoria to work in James Bay.  LOCAL NEWS.  Miss Johnston of New Westminster is visiting with Mrs. Jos. Burr  at Crescent Island.  Mr. and Mrs. Fawcett left on the  Rithet this morning for Victaria  where they will reside in the future.  Pike & Coulthard, contractors on  the River road were to commence  this week leveling andgradingtheir  portion of the contract.  J. Byrom, port steward of the  C. P. N. company at Victoria was  making a tour along the river this  vveek. He is a son of G. H. Byrom  of Delta.  Mrs. F. W. Howay of Westminster and Miss Bain of Vancouver,  arrived last evening on the steamer  Transfer and are the gusts of Reeve  and Mis. Ladner.  ' There will be no service in the  Baptist church Sunday evening, owing to the farewell service of Rev.  Mn Manuel being held in the  Methodist church at 7.30.  J. F. Stainton has a -very good  wooden pump which he manufactures. He has supplied quite a  number throughout the district  all of which are giving good satisfaction.  The directors of the Mechanics'  Institute reading room are preparing plans for the building to be erected on the lot at the corner of  Westham street and the Slough  road. The contract will be let in a  few days,  On Wednesday evening the Ladner Cornet Band serenaded Mr. and  Mrs, Fawcett at their residence on  Delta street. The "boys" were  royally entertained. During the  week Mrs. Fawcett received a presentation from the ladies of the  Methodist church.  H. J- Hutcherson and W. Black  returned the first of the week from  Victoria where they entered the trap  shooting contest in which there  were some crack shots. Both made  very good scores, and "Bill" gave  them a hard time for a little, going  fourteen without a miss.  Mr. and Mrs. W. J. Watson who  have recently arrived from the east,  came down to Ladner Thursday  They are the guests of Mrs, Watson's father, Reeve Ladner. Mr.  Watson will shortly take up the  position of chemist and assayer at  the smelter near Ladysmith,  I  Aug.   Devereaux   Writes  From Halifax.—Left  on the 21st.  Editor Tlie ijpetta Kewg:  Dear Sir: Thinking that some  of the Ladner people would like to  know how we are getting along, I  write yoti a few lines. It would  take too long to describe the long  journey from New Westminster to  Halifax, but it will be sufficient to  say that we arrived at Halifax safe  and sound on Tuesday evening after  being eight days on the train.  There was one mishap however that  might have been serious. It happened on the I. C. R. about half  way between Montreal and Halifax  about ten O'clock on Monday night,  we had just got into our bunks aud  begK.11 to snore nicely when the train  was suddenly brought to a standstill that nearly shook ks out. It  seems that Lieut. Irving, one ofthe  officials, had missed his footing awd  fallen off the car, four men were  immediately sent back to search for  him, and to their intense reHef they  found him a short distance bahind  the train walking along the track.  He was in a half-dazed condition  but besides sustaining a severe shaking up and a very black eye he was  none the worse. All through Brit'  ish Columbia, the North-West,  Manitoba and Ontario, great crowds  assembled at the stations to meet  the train,union jacks were flying  everj'where and the cheering was  at times something terrible. Io  New Brunswick and Nova Scotia,  the people had as many flags and  made as much noise as one could  wish. We are now camping in the  exhibition building in Uitlans Park,  Halifax which is much like Queen's  Park, New Westminster. We are  being treated very well, far better  than we expected. The Fifth Regiment to which all the British Columbia boys belong will sail on the  Corinthian and expect to leave Hali-  sax for South Africa next Wednesday. She is now in port being  fitted up for the horses as rapidly  as possj ble, meantime we are being  drilled for all that is in us. The  other ships have already gone with  about 750 men and horses each.  The Halifax people gave them a  good send off, two good bands  marching with the boys from the  camp down to tlie boat where thousands of people had assembled  Now I hear the bugle calling us to  supper and that of course has to be  attended t j so I will now stop. I  remain yours cordially  A. Dkverkaux.  Halifax, N.S., May 18, 1902,  Ontario Elections  With returns from half a dozen  constituencies somewhat incomplete  and one constituency, Manitoulin,  not heard from at all, the Ross government has been apparently sustained by a majority of about four.  The figures show 50 Liberals re?  turned, including all the ministers,  and 45 Conservatives, giving the  government a majority.  In the last House, with 94 members, the Conservatives bad only 41,  and Liberals (one independent), 53,  There have been added four new  constituencies, and now the Conservatives have in any case materially reduced the government ma'  jority. •  !   ' THE DELTA NEWS, SATURDAY, MAY 31, t*o;  1  THE   DELTA NEWS  ;BY  RIC.   A.   VU \Sr5Jt.  Subscription Price, per year In advance, $1.00  SATURDAY, MAY 31,  1902.  Ladner people have had the privilege of listening to two amateur  plays recently, and we have the  promise of a third at a convenient  date from the Steveston society.  More or less difficulty has been experienced in the presentation of  these plays owing to the smalmess  of the stage. We are not sure  whether our local society may feel  that its labors are ended or only  just begun. In case it decides to  lavor us with another display of  their talent the same hampering  condition will no doubt be experienced. Now we all enjoy amusement of this kind, or at least enough  of us do to give ample returns to  the company for their time and expense. Cannot something be done  to remedy the existing difficulty,  either by enlarging the present  building or the erection of a new  one. Some of our citizens feel that  the village is large enough now to  have a more modern building.  The report of the provincial  library has been placed before the  House. It shows that 1,410 volumes  have been added during the year,  bringing the totd up to 2,920.  There are over 1,250 bound volumes  of newspapers and magazines in the  library. There now some thirty-  five traveling libraries in circulation,  fifteen having been added during  the past year. These traveling  libraries are much appreciated in  tie outlying districts of the province,  and do much to supply the lack of  literature.  A certain member for Vancouver  gays he despises the press of the  province, as it does not represent  the opinions of the people. Everybody remembers the last provincial  election. No self-respecting paper  in the province supported the premier. What ever may be the opinions of Mr. Martin now or then, he  cannot deny that the press voiced  the sentiments of the ballot then.  The Government ofthe Territories  has b,een returned to power with a  great big majority, the Premier's  ppponent losing his deposit. What  Would be the result of an election in  this province?  A§OUT   NEWSPAPERS.  In the operation of printing and  publishing there is a fascination  (from which no one almost is exempt,  pertainly not those whom most  people would think, custom had  staled of any enjoyment in it. There  inust be a great attraction about  newspaper work, else why do men  who once enter the profession nearly  always stay in it. It makes greater  inroads upon a man's time than the  profession of medicine, and its demand uppn the nerve force is not  equalled in any profession. There  are some good prizes in it, but they  are neither so good nor are there so  many of them as in most other professions. We suppose that the idea  pf secret power has something to do  with it. But most people entirely  pver estimate the power of a newspaper. After all, what is it but a  gijrror iu which the community see-;  itself, in which its ideas and aspirations are mirrored an.! :.:-. tbe pro-,  cess made definite? Woe betide the  newspaper which takes up questions  in a manner a long way ahead of  public openion! It must either be  subsidized by someone who agrees  with its attitude, or go out of business. In both cases it ceases to be  a newspaper at all. A newspaper  paid to maintain certain ideas becomes simply a preaching agency  for the propaganda of some particular cult. The art of journalism is  to hold up a mirror to society and  in the process to focus and bring into prcrcr proportion the different  elements of intellectual, moral, social, and industrial force at work  there. Its comment should measure  the effect of such forces upon the  common good. The* man who  sneers at newspapers which have  the support of the community in  which they are published simply  sneers at the -community itself.  Abuse the foibles, the vanities, the  weaknesses of humanity if you will  and abuse the newspapers also.  But remember that poor humanity  is not all vanity and weakness, and  that our newspapers represent the  best that is in us, as well as what is  not so good.—Colonist.  When asked in London on Friday if there was any truth in the  statement that he had offered to pay  $20,000,000 for tlie Philippines, provided he was authorized to announce  to the Filipino that their independence would be acknowledged ultimately by the United States, Andrew  Carnegie replied: "Yes, and I  meant it."  After a discussion lasting four  hours, the Methodist conference at  Vancouver decided not to interfere  with the present rules of the church,  prohibiting dancing, card playing  and kindred amusements. This  was the question of chief public interest, and the debate was at times  very exciting.  Husband: "So a palmist once told  you that you would meet with a  terrible accident during your eighteenth year. I suppose you don't  believe now?"  WIFE: "I do.

The aim of our farmers in growing forage crops is to produce  from  a given area as large a  quantity as  possible ofthe digestible  nutrients  in a palatable form.   The time at  which   a forage  crop is   harvested  miay affect the crop in three ways,  Viz—in the quantity of material har-  "vested1— in the composition of the  •crop, and in the palatability of the  fodder.   As a general rule it has  been found that the greatest amount  ■of dry matter is secured where forage crops are allowed to fully mat-  tire and ripen.   The only exception  is in the case of clovers and other  legumes, there the leaves rattle off  and are lost, either before or during  the process of curing.  It does not follow that when a  j)lant increases in its yield of dry  matter that its nutritive value has  proportionate!}'   increased.     It   is  •quite possible that changes in texture and composition of the dry substance may offset the greater yield.  The dry matter of mature grass contains a larger proportion of crude  fibre than the immatune.    The plant  hardens in texture and loses, in both  palatabflity and digestibility.    It is,  therefore, usually advisable to begin  ■cutting hay early, and  where there  is a large crop to be gathered work  ■should  begin early in  order that it  ibe completed Ibefore the grass seeds  are ripeienou^h to shell from the  Cheadsiofthe late cut grass-    Chemical,analysis has shown'that plants  are ridher in protein in the earlier  stages of growth than when fully  jgrown tor   yearly   mature.     The  trouble with which our feeders have  to eoritemd is the Jack >of protein in  the rations made up of our common  DAIRY UTENSILS.  Old saturated utensils should  never be used for dairy purposes.  Wooden churns should be kept most  scrupr.lousously clean, or they are  not fit to use for long: the churns  should be well aired after use. All  wooden utensils should be regularly  and thoroughly steamed, or else  washed well with a solution of bisulphite of lime, and well rinsed afterwards. This destroys all germs,  which mere washing with hot water  will not do.  The bisulphite of lime should not  be used for metal utensils. It is  cheap, and may be easily obtained.  Rusty tinware is the source of bad  flavor and smell iu milk, and butter  •made from milk which has been  kept in it develops a tallowy flavor.  Washing is useless, and trie iron  utensils should be well covered with  tin.  Hotel Gaiicli >n  J. CREAN, Pn>;  :c-tor.  NEW WESTMI.V TER, B. C.  Rates $2 and $3 a day.  Hotel Colonial  J. K.

Last week we noticed one of our  citizens aiding a poor beast which  had lain down and become tangled  in the rope. If it is permis-able  for these animals to be tied around  fences, more care should be shown  by the owners of the animals.  •cognize the fact that by early cut  ting they can get two crops of highly nitrogenous fodder, where they  only get one by late cutting. Cutting the first crop even before the  heads are fully grown will "tend to  cause a vigorous new growth and  dn this way a good crop of rowan is  secured.  The two crops are moreTaluable,  especially for feeding dairy cows,  than one mature crop on account of  the increased proportion of ;prote 11  The early cut hay seems more palatable to stock, and weight for weight, j  itnore satisfactory.     On the other  land by late cutting' we secure a  ■considerably   larger    quantity   cf  <arbo- hydrates, which are valuable  for feeding, and of crude fibre which  is of low feeding value.  For the damry Cows, and sheep,  (grass should ibe cut earl}', since  tthese animals do not relish hay that  is woody and lacking in aroma, as  is the case with late cut hay.   For  Ihorses and fattening cattle later cut-  fling is allowable, as these animals  ■subsist mostly on concentrated feed,  /and hay serves more for "filling,"  ■as horsemen say.
