In a special to the Victoria Times
Hon. Cli brd -Sifton, minister of
the interior, is reported 'to have
said, in addressing the Canada
Club at Ottawa, that preference
upon grain would mean stimulating
its production and enhancing the
price, but to what extent it was
difficult to say. If Britain accepted the proposed Colonial preference
a bargain could be struck, but until such time as Britain said what
she wanted in return it could not
be de._'ided. It was preposterous to
suggest that Caaada shaiild refrain
���from controlling.her o.vn manufactures for the benefit of B tain. He
:protesteu against Canada being pictured as a squalling infant den and-
ing preference, otherwise it ould
break up family peace and n-ave
the Lmpire. Th2 suggestion that
'CauasdasShould.be brined, otherwise
it would join the American union,
was contemptible. Every self-
���Tesp<'cting Canadian could manage
his own affairs, and if necessary at
times aid Britain. Nothing could
be more destructive to manly self-
reliance than the insinuation that
Canadians required to be bribed in
the performance of their duty as
citizens of the British Empire. If
Britain came to Canada with a
trade treaty he was prepared to
give as much as we got, but would
not support anything that was not
mutually advantageous. It was
not;in the interest of the Empire for
the colonies to harass Britain with
extra burdens. Canada .would not
give up any of its autonomy. The
British navy was not necessary for
the protection of Canada, but land
protection was necessary. He suggested all school boys: should Le
trained to use riiies. He approved
of A. B. Aylesworlii and Sir Louis
Jette not signing the Alaska award,
and said that it would streugthen
the ties between Britain and Canada if iu ail cases.iu which Canada
was interested there should be three
Canadian commissioners.
The Beet Remedy lor Croup.
(From Atchison, Kan., Daily Globe.)
This is the season when the woman
who knows the best remedies for
croup is in dentand in every neighborhood. One of the most terrible
things in the world is to be awakened
in the middle of the night by a whoop
from one of the children. The crolip
remedies are almost as sure'to be lost,
in case of croup, as a revolver is sure
io be lost in case of burglars. Tliere
used to be an old-fashioned remedy
for croup, known as hive syrup, bnt
seme modern mothers say that Chamberlain's Cough Remedy is better,
and does not cost so much. It causes
quicker, and ..Rives relief in a shorter
time. Give this remedy as soon as
thi croupy cough appears and it will
prevent the attack. It never fails
the patient to "throw up the phlegm"
and is pleasant and safe to take. For

Buyers Are Gaining Confidence in the Marks--
Report By a Large
Frank Hamilton, of the firm of
Frank Hamilton & Co., one of the
largest receivers of Canadian apples
in Liverpool, who was in Montreal
during the shipping season, looking
after his consignments, as well as
those of Thos. Russell, Glasgow,
ipeaking to the Star, has this to say
of the Fruit Marks Act:
"When the Act first became law,"
says Mr. Hamilton, "I had my
doubts as to whether it could be
worked successfully on account of
the many conditions surrounding
i iie fruit trade, but it has proved a
success beyond all question. -Speaking for the dealers on the other
<ide, I may say, that owing to the
lack of uniformity in the large
number of grade marks used, and
the irregular packing of Canadian
apples, we were never sure of what
we might expect to find in a package. It was possible to get a good
oarrel uf fruit under a certain grade
mark. It was also possible to get a
barrel of "trash" under the brand,
so that the marks on the package
counted for little. As it is now,
with the marks fixed by law, when
we purchase packages bearing the
'No. i' or 'XXX' brand, we are
reasonably sure that we are,getting
an honest and a fairly uniform
'pack.' This has had a tendency
to inspire great confidence in the
Canadian apple trade."
Speaking of the law from a Canadian standpoint, Mr. Hamilton
said: "I have been a close observer
of the work and I cannot speak too
highly of the Montreal fruit inspectors. They have had on their
hands what I consider a very difficult task, owing to the fact that
they have had to pass judgment on
the work of hundreds of different
packers, and pronounce on the
varying qualities of fruit from the
different sections of the country.
Sound judgment, common sense
and prudeuce have characterized
their actions from the beginning in
administering the law fairly be-!
tween the growers and shippers on
one side and the consumers on the
other. The inspectors, while taking a firm stand, where glaring violations were apparent, showed the
greatest courtesy and consideration
towards the shippers by writing)
hundreds of letters on educational j
lines. It is a well known iact that
there are a number of good shippers who, while they may have the
best tntentions, often find that their
packers here violated the law, I
either through ignorance of itsj
provisions or carelessness. To;
prove this I could show a number
of letters from my Ontario shippers,
who express themselves as only too
anxious to have their fruit inspected and the defects pointed out by
the inspectors that they may remedy the same by instructing their
In conclusion Mr. Hamilton said
it is in the Lest interest of all concerned that a good, honest package
of fruit be placed on the market.
And so say all of us!

(Continued from Last Week.)
In 1882, the late D. Chisholm
purchased 12 acres from W. H.
Ladner, and the firm of Thos. Mc-
Neely & John Buie opened a general store and hotel. The hotel
was the old building in the rear of
the present Delta Hotel, and the
store was situated on the wharf
where the weigh scales now are located. The store "was a very small
affair at'that time, but as trade expanded the size of it kept oil increasing until we now see it in its
present condition, under Marshall
Smith, who employs a large staff of
clerks to keep in touch with the
grdwing demands of the Delta.
Amcmg the early employees in the
business of McNeely ���& Buie was
John Hopper, now Residing in Victoria.
���Shortly afterwards "the firm name
was changed t6 This. McNeely,
the late John Buie having retired.
H. N. Rich, W. L. McBrirte, H. J.
Hutchersoh and Chas. Clausen were
the chief employees for some years
under T. McNeely. W. L. McBride Retiring his position and

The Municipality of Delt* was
founded in 1879, and the first-meeting of the Council was held on
January 12th, 1880, with W. H.

A Good Programme Successfully Carried Out-
Neat Sum Reaiifctd foi
Church Work.
The rale of work and entertain.
ment f iveu by the Ladies' Guild of
All .Saints' last Wednesday, was,
we are glad to say, moat successful,
the proceeds amounting to $105.
The sale was wall patronized all the
afternoon, and in the evening, in
spite ef most disagreeable weather,
a goodly trusaber turned out, and ���
pleasant evening was spent.
An impromptu programme of
music was rendered and seemed to
be appreciated. A trio, "Ye Shepherds," was sung by _j_rs. P.J.
MacKenzie, Mite Greek and Canon
Hilton. E. T. Calvert's 'rendering
of the "Deathless Arm?" was loudly encored. He kindly responded
with Kipling's "On the %oad to
Mandalay." The chorus ''"'Allen**
ette" "brought dawn the b.6hse.'*
Tbe programme of music was
very much cnrtailcd en account of
the sale of work and auctioneering
of remaining geods. T. B. Ladder made an excellent auctioneer,
though challenged as to his license.

Aa will be seen in another column,
Rev. Canon Hilton has received the
unanimous call to St. Barnabas'
parish, New Westminster, but has
decided to stay here. It would be
a, great shame, we think, in the
light of existing circumstances, if
All Saints' congregation were to so
far forget their duty as to allow any
obstacle to bar the way of the
Canon in the good work he has so
energetically begun.
Although we do not, at present,
claim membership in his church,
we fully appreciate the quality and
amount of genuine work accomplished by him since his arrival
Accustomed to preach to the men
of the  Northwest Mounted Police
Force, he is a hard hitter, and we
mint be prepared to hear the Truth
a*) contained in the Word.    Follow
his advice and prepare yourselves
to take up your share of the burden
which is laid upon the shoulders oi
a'pastor.    Attend church regularly
and try to be consistent.    Do not
go, out duck shooting before breakfast and stay away  from church at
night because "It is too dark, too
."wet, or because you are too tired
.and weajy ������from'youi*early morn
. iag's tmanp;.--. but   remember   that
one day im seven is au. that God
.demands of us to devote tb  His
aervicp���that it is His day and not
iburs.     If   the members   of   the
,/cb*irch'd*o*not attend where is tbe
-coagregation to come from, and if
there is no congregation, what need
is there of a preacher ?
When you are asked to contribute
towards the support ot the church
remember how much you would be
willing te pay-,for th-: use oi a
masquerade suit, and t! en ��� do
your duty to God.

The   Bone   Cutter   in
The greatest ancestor of our domestic poultry, the jungle hen, like our
own prairie hen, had perfect freedom,
and was never asked to lay more eggs
than she could properly cover���i, c,
about fifteen���once or twice per
year. She was able to get all the
"meat" food wanted, in the shape of
bugs, ants, worms, etc., etc. Since
then the birds have been domesticated,
and from fifteen or thirty eggs per
year, the flock of hens laying 150 eggs
;>er year is common, and a flock aver-
aging joo eggs per hen per annum is
not a rarity. These birds havi
simply been improved and cared for.
But all the caring or coddling would
be ineffective without the proper
foods. With us, wheat, barley and
oats have got to form the staple food,
none of them contain sufficient protein or fat for the hen to produce thc
egg quickly. We must, then, supply
the meat foods ourselves. This Can
te done in the shape of some of the
prepared foods���meat meal, blood
meal, beef scraps, etc., or cut bone.
Of all the above, the latter is the best
and by far the cheapest. A machine
for 100 birds can be bought for about
ffJ.OO. Thc bone can frequently hi
purchased, at a small cost, sometime

tin wasted, turned into a veritable

Js-ms-   DIvrrtliiK   History   of fke  KM*
of tlie Saiu-bera umiedcuey.
The fl it ol 'tin Confederacy, or ratbnt
the 11 ui tin- Confederacy, had some curious Ijits of history iittuohed to their exist-
���eiice On Maroh., ism, tbe provisional
Confederate congress recommended that
"the Quit of the '. Vmfederafte Suites St
Ataerlea SbnH consist of a red field, with
a ��� liite space 'extending horiznn tally
throi pli the ceirter and ujultl in width to
ano-ti-.ir.-t the width of the flag, the red
���paces i- and Mow to be of the same
width nt the white, the union, blDe, extending down through the white spaces
nntl stopping at tin. lower Ted space, in
too center (it the union* circle or white
slurs corresponding ln -number w th tbe
���fates of jho Confederacy." It was firs,
displayed in public March 4, 1881, the day
of tlie inauguration of -Ijiucoln, and was
Unfurled over the stateliouse at Montgomery, Ala
On the battlefield tbe flag bore such a
���similarity to the Union flag that in September. 1801, tor one Army of-the Potomac,
���<5eii(i-iils Beauregard and Johnston created
what afterward beuouie known as tho bat*
llelliig���a red ground witha bluediagonn'l
���cross einhla.oned v. itli white stars, one for
each state This form was adopted by all
of the tmo|)s eust of the Mississippi river.
The first design, bearing the objection at
Resemblance to the stars and stripes, and
tbe battled tig having no-reverse, the Confederals' senate in Sprl-1, -1-808, adopted a
white ling, with a sin.-.d blue bur it) its
center, whieh was amended by inserting
the battlellag design as the union, with a
plain white ground for the field This arrangement afterward proved faulty, as at
���a distance tho iargo whitp Held resemblod
a flag of truce, and also, as combined with
the union was similar to tho English
White ensign
On Feb 4, lSHft. the Confederate senate
adopted a third chango: "The width, two-
thirds of Its luitgth, with the iiiiiun. now
used as a battlellag, to be In width throe-
fifths of tlie width of the (lng, and so proportioned as to leave the length of the field
"on the sido of the anion twiee tho width
'below it; to have a ground of red and
broad-blue sii It lor therein bordered wltb

Skin of the devotees of tobacco.
Thu lirst and foremost rule ls never to

when the stomach Is empty. This custom
'is tbe wci.-i possible foe of digestion. Never smoke during nny exertion of great
physical energy, as dancing, running, cycling, mountain climbing or rowing, and
especially it' in a contest. Never follow
"the bail custom of the French and the
'Russians" by allowing tho smoke to pass
through tho noBo. Never inhale it through
'the nose.

The McBride Government in British Columbia, finding it impracticable to bring the expenditure ofthe
Province down to the level of the
revenue, has undertaken to raise
the revenue to the level of the expenditure. The step is one which requires >)ore than ordinary courapc.
Under a series of weak administrations Briti.'ui Columbia has got into
what can only be described as financial straits. It was fairly easy to
borrow and very easy to spend, and
whatever ministers did not do they
did do tb';.sf tw.o. Then there was a
���surrender to the railway promoters,
ar.d laryv prospective liabilities were
addon to largo actual obligations.
.-. deficit was the ordinary result of
c-aeh financial year's operations.
The nui.k end of such condition.1
would Lie bankruptcy. Mr. McBride's Mnicy is designed to avert
thia. It. is '.'���e only wise policy,
It is the  jio-icy   of u  stt aii_;   nun
