Lecture.
On Tuesday evening list abou t
one hundred of our residents turned out to welcome Rev. Dr. Chown,
of Toronto, who, in turn, gave an
interesting lecture on "Politics as
Relating to Temperance and Moral
Reform."
The meeting was opened by singing and prayer. Rev. Thos. Oswald and Rev. A. N. Miller occupying the platform with the Doctor.
Alter a few preliminary remarks
by the chairman (Mr. Miller), the
lecturer said he was pleased 'to see
so many present. The ��� department
which he represents, was iaugurat-
ed for the .purpose of standing between the church and the government to aid in securing legislation
in the interests of moral reform. The Doctor set forth
very graphically the despicable condition into which the both political
parties have lapsed. He drew picture after picture, from present day
life, to verify his statements. And
political corruption does not rest
alone with parliamentarians, as he
gave illustration? where church
members, professing Christians, descended to. acts of bribery in order
to elect their man.
In foreign missionary work, the*
lecturer said, the Japanese ask why
do we send Christianity to them
when we are so corrupt ourselves
The Japs read of the unclcauness
of our political parties and wonder.
If we expect success in carrying
the Gospel to such countries that,
we must first sweep our own doorstep clean. Politics, to-day, is a
business of money-making. We
must preach politics if we wish to
clean things up. Politicians ought
to be Christians iu every sense of
the word.
Westminster
New Westminster, .Sept. 21st.���
The meeting of the executive and
general committee of the R. A. 4 I.
Society last evening in the City Hall
was not very largely attended, President Trapp occupied the chair.
The offer made a few weeks ago
by the Rovers football team to play
two or more games during the
course of the Fair was accepted.
These matches will be played between 12 a. m. and 2 p. m., and the
other teams will be the sailors from
the war ship and the Columbian
College aggregation.
The special features committee
reported that the articles for the
Gotch McLeod championship wrestling match has been signed and the
forfeit money of both men posted.
Mr. Henry White, of Bellingham,
has been accepted as referee. Both
principals were present with Carrol,
Gotch's manager, and all the necessary final arrangements were made
to wrestle on Wednesday afternoon,
Oct. 5th, for the championship of
America, a purse of ��1,000 and a
side bet of a like amount. When the
talking had all subsided Manager
Keary asked Gotch if he had any
friends who would back him, and on
receiving an answer in the affirmative, Mr. Keary stated that he had
authority to put up ��7,500 on the
3rd of October on Dan McLeod.
This was a surprise to the Bellingham people, but Gotch states that
the money will be covered. The
special features committee also reported that thev had arranged for
balloon ascensions by Prof. Thompson on Thursday and Friday afternoons during the fair.
The lacrosse and trap-shooting
committees are making progress,

JUDGES FOR   FAIR.
The following communication
has been received by A. DeR. Taylor, secretary of the Agriciiliural
Society: Sir, I will send you H. G.
Reed, of Georgetown, Out.,, and
Thos. McMillan, of Seaforth Ont.,
to judge live stock at your show on
thc 14th and 15th October. Mr.
Reed is a judge of light and heavy
horses and Mr. McMillan of light
and -heavy horses and beef and
dairy cattle. These gentlemen will
afterwards address meetings of the
Farmers' Institute on Monday, the
17th, at Laciner, and Tuesday, the
i8lh, at East Delta school house.
Yours, etc., J. R. Anderson

keep politics clean also? He
thought the political parties to-day
could not be expected to improve
the present condition. We need a
new order of tilings. The only
way to redeem Canada to-day is for
the church of Jesus Christ to step
in and educate the people up to a
new state of things. He thought
the ballot the most sacred thing a
man could hold in his hand next to
the Word of God and the S.icra-
mental Cub. All government is of
God.
"When I mark my ballot I put
myself in the government. What
ami? Am I not a man?" When
a man sells his vote he is not worthy
of the name. If we do our share
we shall overcome the evil of the
liquor traffic.
After taking up the collection
and singing "Onward Christian
Soldiers" the meeting, wbich was
very attentive throughout, dispersed well satisfied.
Mrs. W. J. Lanning presided at
the organ, and her services were
much appreciated.

17. at 3 p.m., with the Reeve, R.

The question is asked "Why are
oar farmers content to buy timothy
and clover seed at 14c to 16c per
lb. when they can grow a better
quality, themselves, to sell ?"
Tbe dredge, King Edward VII.,
has aot made her appearance above
tke horizon of the fast gathering
i_.ud flats. Should much more time
elapw ere its arrival it is hard telling what might happen.
WEED SEEDS.
The seed division of the Department of Agriculture, Ottawa, has
just issued an illustrated bulletin on
"Weed Seeds Commonly Found in
Timothy, Alsike and Red Clover
Seeds." It is well known that
large quantities of seeds of many
noxious weeds are each year unwittingly sown with grass and
clover seeds. The resemblance of
many weed seeds to the commercial
.seeds with which they are found
makes their detection difficult to
an untrained eye, even if they be
present to the extent of several
hundred per pound. It is, therefore, of great importance to be able
to identify at least the seeds ot
those weeds which are seriously injurious in agriculture. The text
and illustrations of this bulletin
(No. 16, new series) are published
with a view to assist farmers to
identify the more dangerous weed
seeds common to grass and clover
seeds. The illustrations of seeds
are from drawings by J. H. Faull,
lecturer in botany, University of
Toronto, and the descriptions are
by G. H. Clark, chief of the seed
division, Ottawa, to whom applications for copies of the bulletin
should be addressed. As the edition is limited, it will be sent only
to those who apply for it.

WHO'S TO BLAME?
What are the provincial authorities doing in regard to bridging
Canoe Pass and allowing the people of Westham Island proper
egress and ingress to their properties?
This is a question we would like
to see answered. Although a petition, representing a goodly number
of votes, was filed with the Department of Public Works sometime
back we bave yet to hear of any
action being taken. The local
member might profitably use, in
this matter, some of the energy he
expends in looking up the shortcomings of the government in other
districts wherein we, his constituents, are little interested.
Such a bridge as the one asked
for, beside being of greatest convenience to the public of Westham
Island, would be of incalculable
value to the town of Ladner. At
the present time trade to the value
ef five hundred dollars per month
passes by our doors going to New
Westminster. This should not be,
and it behooves our merchants to
bestir themselves, bringing ail their
influence te Dear and making every
effort to obtain for Westham Island
that justice wbich is undoubtedly
its dne.

The Proper Treatment for a Sprained Ankle.
As a rule a man will feel well
satisfied if he can hobble around on
crutches two or three weeks after
spraining bis ankle, and it is usually
two or three months before he has
fully recoveied. This is an unnecessary loss of time, but in many cases
in which Chamberlain's Pain Balm
has been promptly and freely applied, a complete cure has been
effected in less than one week's
time, and in some cases within
three days.���For sale by F. J.
MacKenzie.
COOL CURED CHEESE.
Judging from the greater demand
tor cool cured cheese which exists
thia season, the Old Country merchants are beginning to realize more
fully the advantage there is in
handling cheese which have not
been exposed during the process of
curing to a temperature higher than
sixty degrees. Cheese factories that
aire able to offer strictly cool cured
cheese are deriving so much benefit
that it must be only a question of
time, a short time in fact, until all
factories are equipped with proper
cool curing rooms.
