The recent meeting of farmers at
Uulner and their present attitude
toward* vUltlng sportsmen raises a
serious question. At Lulu Island the
problem has been to a large extent
settled by the formation of the Richmond Game Association. This club,
while successful in a certain degree
tn dealing with the differences between the farmers and the city shooting men, is after all but a makeshift. It ls doing In an expressive
manner what the provincial government could do with far less financial
expenditure tn the sportsmen nnd
with n . expenditure of public moneys. Thc system tnnuguartcd by the
Itlchmond Onmo Association is a
practical Illustration of the gun lie-

of thc scheme is the Identification and

iu a cauoe to Hope. They entered
the river by way of Canoe Pass aud
ou the journey camped on the very
site of this townsite, destined to be
his home for somany years. By
tnis course they avoided H. M. S.
Satellite, then anchored at the sand-
heads for the purpose of collecting
head money aud duties.
Mr. Ladner reached Hope on the
6th of Tune, 1858, and on the next
moruing (Sunday) was awakened
by hearing Indians crying "Fire-
ship! Fire-ship!" Looking down
the river he saw the "Surprise"
coining up, ou her first trip. He
settled at Hope, and when Governor Douglas arrived there shortly
afterwards, on a tour of inspection,
he selected Mr. Laduer as Customs
officer and constable. This was one
ofthe first of Governor Douglas'
appointments on the mainland.
On the discovery of the gold-
bearing creeks ol Cariboo, Antler,
Keithley and Williams, Mr. Ladner saw  his opportunity and corn-
Realizing that gold-digging it
ephemeral but agriculture is permanent, he turned his attention to
the rich tide Ian Is of the Delta, and
in 1S6S he settled on what is now
this townsite, which has ever since
borne his name.
He interested himself in securing
settlers around him, and when the
municipality of Delta was formed
ia 1880 he wns elected Reeve. From
lhat time to the present he has always taken the most lively interest
in this municipality. He was
Reeve in 1S80; Councillor in 1SS1;
Reeve again in 18S2, 1883, 1S84,
1S.S5, 18S6 and .1891; Councillor in

In 18S2, Mr. Ladner was a candidate for parliamentary honors, but
was unsuccessful. However better
results attended his next attempt,
aud from 1886 to 1890 he sat in the
Provincial Legislature as one of the
members for New Westminster
District. In 1903 he ran again for
the House in opposition to Johu
Oliver, M.P.P., but unsuccessfully.
He was a Liberal-Conservative in
politics aud has always played a
prominent part iu till gatberit.gs
and conventions of the party.

Except the acclimatized Japanese from
Powersoourt and elsewhere, they are wild
creatures, caught ln distant islands uud
continents, from the Molucoas and Formosa to the Altai mountains or thu swamps
of Canada, yet tho difficulty is to keep
them wild enough. It is always dangerous to o*'ow stags to become tame and
familiar. If they lose their fear of man,
they are liable to become dangerous at
oertain seasons and attack persons in a
park or keepers as savagely nB they do
their own kind, consequently all familiarity has to be discouraged at other seasons
whon tho deer are most anxious to be
friendly. With the hinds thia is not neoes-
