HARCM I, 1902.  $1.00 a year.   —-r — L~IJ   ■  THE DaH DISTR1GI SEED POTIITOES  Are of Choicest Quality.   Agents  from the States   Purchasing  for Northern Trade.  British Columbia, as an agricultural country, does not. perhaps  compare favorably in area with some  of the sister provinces, or with many  of the states of the United States,  'but undoubtedly few parts of North  America can show richer areas of  land than are to .be found in this  province. We have many valleys  that for farming and ranching are  second to none, and each year these  lands are becoming more valuable  as their intrinsic worth is known.  It has generally been conceded by  all that the Fraser valley lands are  the best on the Pacific slope, and  without doubt Delta district is the  best part of this rich .area of land.  It has more well-to-do farmers than  any other part of British Columbia.  Messrs. Mignerey & Cousins commission agents of Seattle, recognizing the superiority of the Delta  potato, are at /present purchasing  seed for the Yakima Valley, Wash..,  farms from the farmers here. They  claim that the seed raised here and  planted in their district will produce  a potato fit for the market in the  early part of July. To them this is  very important an they intend shipping for the northern trade as early  as possible. It seems that our potatoes besides being early on the  market are also good producers.  While the farmers in that valley can  raise only from four to five tons per  acre from their own seed, the average crop here is from ten to sixteen  tons for the same amount of ground.  This of course is on account of  the soil here being morepnrtictilarly  adapted to potato growing than that  in Yakima, but should these gentle.  men be successful in their experiment of increasing the tonnage per  acre by planting our seed, it will  undoubtedly create a demand for  the potatoes grown in this district.  These gentlemen are buying Early  Rose and white potatoes but prefer  the former. They find that the  farmers here do not confine themselves to one kind but mix their  potatoes too much, however they  have not experienced much difficulty iu getting the kind desired.  They have ahead)' purchased over  one hundred tons of potatoes and  are in need of more.  It should be rather flattering to  the farmers of this district that these  gentlemen have con .e here to purchase seed as in addition to paying  the regular market price they have  added to the cost of the potato the  freight and duty—the duty alone  amounting to $8,35 per ton—and  we trust that where seed has been  purchased that the farmers will be  alive to their own interests and give  the best for the money that it is  possible to give. • '  Special Trip to Westminster,  The steamer Transfer will make  a speciai trip to New Westminster  to accomodate the people of Ladner,  and along ihp river to attend the  performance of Colleen Bawn which,  will be held in the opera house on  Friday evening., The proceeds go  to the Lacrosse Club, to aid (hem  on their tour east.  The performance promfces to be  a great treat and being compi'i.scd of  Jocal artists who have spent many  greeks preparing, 't should   be one  of the best yet held in the Royal  City. The Transfer will leave Lad  ner wharf at 6:30 p. m. Friday, returning leaving New Westminster  after the performance. Parties  along the river going up will be left  at their places on return of the boat.  No doubt a good attendance from  the lower Fraser will take advantage of this performance and special  trip.     . vpV       , .,    ,  1L0CAL   NEWS.  Jos.

The Municipal Council have sent  out Road Superintendent Ormston  to excavate and build the flood box  at Humes. The size of the box  will be four by eight feet. The  dredge is making rapid progress on  the .road and' the contractors are  rushing the work.  H. J. Kirkland, one of the delegates to the Dairymen and Live  Stock Association at Victoria, returned home Friday and reports a  well attended and instructive meeting. He and Reeve Ladner were  elected directors of the Association  from the lower mainland.  Mrs. Joseph Jordan left on Sunday last for Custer, Washington, to  attend the funeral of her nephew,  Henry Long, a lad about 17 years  of age. He was employed in a  shingle mill iu that town, and while*  engaged at his work he became  caught in a belt, and before the  machinery cou'.u be stopped the poor  lad had received such injuries that  resulted in his death,  wmtwum  flembers of   the Legislature Indulge in a Disgraceful Exhibition of Temper.  Victoria, Feb. 24.—The ugly  temper of factions ran' riot in the  Assembly to-day, and as a result  business was untouched. The discord arose re the apportionmeirt of  seats, carried out under the instruc-  tibnsofMr. McBride'sparty, which,  upon the grounds that it is the only  r?al opposition Party, claimed the  second, seat in the front row' on the  left qf the Speaker for its leader.!  This seat was occupied by Mr. Mar-  tin-during the last two sessions, and  he stated that he had consented to  relinquish it, provided he himself  and his I following were given certain seats together further down the  row. This arrangement was not  effected.  ■ Mr.. Martin's followers, Messrs.  Mclnnes, Stables, Oliver and Oil-  mour, held their old seats, but when  Mr. Martin entered the house at 2  o'clock he found Mr: McBride occupying his. Hot words ensued between Mr. McBride and Mr. Martin,  which developed into a riotous debate, and a disgraceful exhibition of  temper. Mr. Martin captured his  chair during prayers. He was set  upon .by Mr. Curtis, who tried to  drag him out o/,it. Mr. Gilmour  went to the assistance of Mr. Martin  and it looked like a general fight for  a time.  . The Martinites claim that it was  an attempt to degrade their leader  in the eyes of the House and the  country by forcing him into the  back benches. The defence made  by Mr. McBride's party is that no  insult was intended, but merely a  declaration of the rights which  Parliamentary usage allowed the  Opposition.  It is generally admitted that the  scene was the most disgraceful ever  witnessed in" any legislature.  The legislature has been adjourned  until Monday, March 3rd.  A Wise Proposition.  Those of the residents of the Delta  who drive into Xew Westminster.  will hail with interest the extensive  .improvements that are taking place  at South Westminster, in the way  of more extended hotel improvements.  Mr. J. Wise, present proprietor  of the Surrey Hotel, has decided to'  establish a first-class Imtel on this  side of the riv.ex and close to the  railway depot. With this purpose  iu view he has purchased the Odin  building that stood on the opposite  side of the road to the present hotel.  He has moved it to the new site,  and a number of carpenters .are  busily at work on the interior.  When finished the hotel will be  up-to-date in every particular. It  will contain a sitting room; dining  room, bar room, kitchen aiid pantry,  as well as a private parlor and bedroom downstairs. The upper story  will be made up of twelve large, and  well lighted bedroomfe. In front a  large veranda and porch will be  constructed, and a wide plank walk  will connect the hotel with the depot  and the landing.  Mr. Wise has also built a stable  as well as a large shed in connection  with the hotel. The stable will  hold eight double teams, while the  shed will afford shelter for the rigs.  Everything is being arranged  for  the comfort of teamsters.  The Surrey Hotel has done  service at the landing for the past  ten or twelve years, but owing to  the increased traffic on the Great  Northern since that company inaugurated its daily service from  New Westminster to Seattle, it was  found that the present hostelry was  insufficient to accomodate the needs  of the general public, thus the opening of the present proposed hotel.  This should prove a great convenience to the people of Langley,  Surrey and Delta Municipalities,  and Mr. Wise deserves credit for  his enterprising spirit.  Death of  Speaker Booth.  Hon. J. P. Booth, Speaker of the  Legislative Assembly, and a member of the First Legislative Assembly of British Columbia, died at  his residence on Salt Spring Island,  at 9:30 on Tuesday night, after an  illness of 18 mouths.  The late John 'Paton Booth was  bom in Scotland and educated in  Ontario. He sat for Cowichanin  the First Assembly of British <Cdl-  umbia after Confederation, 1871-75.  He Sttt for the Islands in the Sixth  Parliament, after the General Flee  tion of 1890, and for North Victoria  District in the Seventh Parliameirt,  1894-98. He was re-elected as a  supporter oi the Turner Administration fc^ North Victoria in 1898, and  again In igoo. He was Liberal in  Federal poiiiics.  Col.  Prior  Sworn In.  Col. E. G. Prior was on Thursday  afternoon at 1 o'clock sworn in as  Minister of Mines, the portfolio vacated by Richard McBride. Hon. I  Mr. Prior will run in Victoria as j  Government candidate against Mr.  E. V. Bodwell, in the forthcoming  election.  In the event of a writ being received for a by-election in North  Victoria Mr. T. W. Paterson, formerly manager of the Victoria &.  Sidney Railway, will Rppttaf as the  Opposition candidate.  Premier Dunsmuir will place the  steamer City of Nanaimo at the  service of the members wishing to  attend the funeral of the late Mr.  Speaker Booth on .Saturday next.  A Correction.  In last weeks issue of Tun NBWS  John Oliver, M. L. A., lor Delta,  jvas credited with being absent from  his seat during the taking of the  division of the House. The reasons  Mr. Oliver gives that he did not  vote, was that the leader of the  government stated in answer to the  motions that it was the intention of  government to issue a writ for Victoria City as quickly as possible,  which could only be construed that  it would be issued at once. The  ordinary practice in such cases is to  accept the statement of the government and to withdraw the motion,  but as there seemed to be a desire  to make political capitid out of the  question. Mr. Oliver refrained from  votiug.  ■  Crew   Narrowly   Escaped   Being  Trapped.   One Man Drowned  Known in Ladner.  Messrs.   Cameron    and    Gibson  leave for Dawson shortly.  The Bank of Commerce announces the following changes: G.  K. Parkes, manager at New Westminster, to be manager at Seaforth,  Ontario, and II. R. Davidson,  accountant at Vancouver, to be  manager at New Westminster.  Sealing schooner R. I. Morse, the  smallest schooner of the fleet,' was  totally wrecked during a heavy  souteast gale 40 miles from Cape  Orford, south of Cape Blanco, at  2:25 p. m. on February 16. One of  her crew was drowned and the remainder escaped as though by a  miracle from being drowned like  rats in a trap. The schooner turned  turtle, and was bottom upward with  all except one of her crew struggling  in the half-filled cabins until the  weight of the cement ballast righted  her in the lee sea, and the survivors  rushed on deck, and standing amidst  the wreckage, saw their unfortunate  comrade, George Donaldson, drown  before their eyes. Clinging to half  of one of the wrecked boats, he was,  waiving his arms for aid not more  than 50 yards from the schooner's  sterii, and as the survivors watched  hhu, 'unable to do anything to assist  him—for even had it been possible  for a boat to live in such a sea, they  had none left intact—they saw his  mouth moving and knew that amidst  the noises of the storm he was shouting for the help they could notgivt.  The storm drowned his outcries, and  as they looked they saw him drift  away into the midst of the storm,  and no doubt soon afterwards sank.  The survivors cleared the wreckage, got out drags, used oil to calm  the high seas, and fought the storm  to keep their wrecked vessel free.  Standing in their drenched clothes,  cold and exhausted, they baled and  pumped until on Tuesday morning  the schooner Penelope saw their  distress signals and they were taken  -from the wreck, and the losfc:  schooner was blown up that it might  not be a menace to navigation.  Four days later they were put on  board the San Francisco liner Umatilla, which landed them at the  Victoria on Sunday night. The  saved are Capt. G. Cessford, Mate  J. Bishop (owners), J. Roberts, F-  D. Kelly, M. Mitchel, G. Firdaispu  and A. Williams. George Donaldson, who was on watch when the  schooner turned over, was lost. He  was the son of James Donaldson,  fisherman, and Mrs. Donaldson, of  Victoria. This was his first sealing  cruise.  Kelly and the deceased were well  known in Ladner, having been engaged in fishing on the Fraser.     Miss Stone Released.  Miss Ellen M. Stone, the American missionary who, with Mme.  Tsilka, was captured by brigands in  the district of Salonica, September  30 last, was released and arrived at  Strumitza, Macedonia, at 3 o'clock  this morning. Nobody was at  Strumitza to meet Miss Stone, as  the brigands had given no indication where they proposed to release  the prisoners. Mme Tsilka and  her baby were also released at the  the same time. They are all well,  Miss Stone immediately made herself known to the authorities at  Strumitza.  Senator Templeman was sworn in  as member of the privy council and  a minister without portfolio oil  Tuesday.    „ ».  mmm^mmmmuv i jinn ii i hi 'ii 11 ii  THR   DEWA  NEWS  WRIC. A.

QWS of the secrets of adverting  |ies not in one insertion but in a  constant presentation. As an illustration of this we quote iEsop's fable  pf the crow and the pitcher of water,  as follows: "A crow becoming very  thirsty, sought » PlSce to relieve  himself. At h¥»t he found a pitcher  containing wa^er, but there was  pnly a very small quantity of the  jiquid in the bottom qf \he pitcher.  fot anatomical reasons the crow  cpujd. not F?acu tue Water> neither  could h« P9ur Jt out'» i>ut being a  wise fellow, he persisted. At last  he thought out a plan, Picking out  a pebble he propped \\ into the  pitcher without any effect whatever,  put be was not tne k!n4 (?f fellow to  \»: fjjscouraged. He ljne\y he was  tlgfet fy& awav ne went dropping  peqhle after pebble into, the pitcher  until the water was rajsed to the top,  yrhefe he could reach it with ejise."  *yhe moral drawn by the ad-  ytftiser from this well known fable  is that there is many a thirsty advertiser to-day who, because lie  failed to drop a sufficient number of  pebbles, must go without the de-  W%A ffturns.  A Ml»4 geclpe:  A fashionable young lady yjsited  a cookery school the other aftfjrnoon,  where her attention was equally divided between a new dress worn by  an acquaintance and the directions  for making a cuke. Upon return'  ing home she undertook to write  dqwn the recipe for making the cake  for- her mother, and the old lady was  paralyzed when she read:  "Take two pounds of flour, three  rows of pleating down the front, the  whites of two eggs cut bias, a pint  of milk ruffled round the neck, half-  pound currants, with seven yards of  bead trimming, grated lemon-peel,  with lace fichu; stir well, and add a  semi-fitting paletot with visite  sleeves, butter the pan with Brazilian topaz necklace, and garnish  with icing and jetted passementerie.  Bake in a moderately hot oven until  the overskirt is tucked from the  waist down on either side, and finish  with large satin bows."  Her mother said she wouldn't eat  such a cake, and she thought these  newfangled ideas iu cooking ought  to be frowned down.  The  Handy Telephone.  The telephone can be made profitable as well as simply convenient if  it is used in the right way. Farms  provided with one of them have advantages over those without. Should  there be a bulge iu the market one  can become apprised of that fact  very easily by telephoning to the  dealer in some town several miles  away. If he does not care to telephone to the buyer he can telephone  to some other person in town and  get the information. This will  afford an opportunity to push the  product right to market if the prices  justify. Other business of importance can be transacted by the aid of  the telephone, and thus save plenty  of trips to town. Many a trip,  meaning several miles, takes the  greater part of a day, when the business could have been transacted in  five minutes by the aid of the telephone,—15x,  The Colonist Control.  According to the despatches the  matter of the control of the Colonist  newspaper at Victoria, has been  taken into court as promised. Ac-  tion has been commenced on behalf  of Mrs. Joan Dunsmuir and Forbes  George Vernon, who sue for themselves as well as for all other holders  save the individual defendants. The  claim is for an injunction restraining  the defendants namely James Dunsmuir, C. 1£, Pooley, A. G. Sargison,  A. Lindsay and M. Hills from assuming office as directors, and that  }heir election be declared invalid.  The plaintiffs further complain  that the editorial management has  beeu changed and other changes  made in the staff,  la  Letter Heads, ,  When you get a letter from a man  who uses a simple clean letter head  containing nothing but his name,  business and address, set up without any effort toward display, you  arc impressed with the fact that  your correspondent is a solid dignified, reliable business man.

MONTELIUS,  410 Hastings Street, W  VANCOUVER, THE -DELTA NEWS, SATURDAY, MARCH i, 190*.  A MDHCAL EMPORIUM,  An Enterprise In Our Midst  Which   Deserves  Special Mention.  That Vancouver and vicinity are  music loving is very evident. The  Chicago Symphony Orchestra that  visited Vancouver and New West  minster last week, bore evidence to  this from the large and enthusiastic  patronage it received. Same with  (he Italian Band several months ago  and it is a well known fact that  pierit, honesty and just dealings  ^itfi the public will wiu in British  Columbia.  This does not only bring Orchestras and Opera Companies to our  province. It also brings buuiness  that in time means much to the  Province, As instanced by the &o  tion of Mr, W. W. Montelius a  piano and organ expert of over 30  years practical experience.  Last week we had the pleasure of  going through the new piano and  organ warerooms of Mr. Montelius  and we were amazed at the elegance  of the appointments, On the walls  are valuable oil paintings. One  pair being valued at $1,000. Rich  carpejts and rugs on the floors  and (beautiful decorations.  The store is at 410 Hastings St.,  We*t. It is a large one completely  filled from front to rear with choice  new pianos and organs. Consisting  of Jhe Great Bell Organ Co.'s productions and other makes.  Mr. Moptelius stated to us that  the Bell Pianos and Organs from  now on would be represented in a  business ''up-to-dftte" manner, and  we saw fome 30 of these "new art"  pianos in the most beautiful cases of  the latest designs pi choice mahogany, walnut, quartered sawed oak  and oth#f costly woods. Mr, Montelius is ajso carrying a large stock  of th» naif high grade Palmer pianps  and ether wakes, Thj» Palmer  pianos rt}(tke a fit funning mate to  the great Bell inasmuch that while  they are not so expensive yet they  are high grade pianos built to wear  and to stand our damp climate.  We were surprised and much  gratified at the low and very reasonable prices we saw attached to  pianos, $250, 5275, $300 certainly  looked very tempting and would  almost convince one that Jt was  cheaper tp buy a piano than, to do  without one.  Mr. Montelius explained to us  that it m§ruit everything to a customer if his dealer knew how to buy  his goods, and he certainly has that  knowledge. Again he keeps expenses down knowing how to buy  and how to sell, and he takes a personal interest not only in his customers but in their selection,  Mr. Montelius has abundance of  capital arid he stated to us that for  the past 23 years he has never discounted, traded nor sold a customer's  note, So if any of our readers deal  with Mr. Montelius they will not be  annoyed by giving ninety day notes  to be discounted, and new notes  signed every few months.  We saw a whole carload of New  Bell Organs, ranging in price from  $50 tp £150, and we were much impressed with the low prices and  easy terms. "Yes" said Mr. Montelius "We want the Delta district  and vicjnity trade ajjd if honorable,  fair and business like methods will  secure it why it is only a question  of time until we get the confidence  and the patronage of the people, and  we want -all people living outside of  Vancouver to make our store their  home'when visiting the City.'*  Mr, Montelius is a skilled musician, and we believe he will make a  valuable acquisition to Vancouver  and British Columbia.

Fruit trees shoitjd be pruned every  year. If neglected for one season  you can never catch up; your trees  have one year the start of you. In  pruning trees as iu all other business, keep ahead of your work. If  you are going to lead a cow put the  rope around her horns, if you hitch  it to her tail, you will be sure to get  left behind, and so in playing the  game of ' 'snap the whip,'' the boy  at the tail end of the rope is always  the one that gets left. Always keep  ahead of your work; push your work  or it will push you. Prune your  trees every year and then there are  no large branches to remove. Never  take off a branch without being able  to tell why it should be taken off.  As ye prune and thin the fruit,  so shall ye harvest.—American  Gardening,  Hotel Colonial  J. K. INttMiV, Prop.
