To-morrow and   Thursday  Mr.
Rich   will   conduct   three auctiou
Ottawa, Dec. io.���Parliament is
in session, and the debate on the
address in reply to the speech from
the throne has been provocative ot
results, some of them expected and
pleasant to the Liberals and some
of them unexpected and disagreeable io the Tories.
Total Trade of Canada.
Mr. R. R. Hall, M. P., Peterborough, tneved the address and it
was his proud privilige to give tbe
House some very interesting facts
and figures. Mr. Hall in a comprehensive, lucid and painstaking
effort; produced for the consideration of the House figures showing
how the country has progressed
since 1896. He enumerated figures
wbich showed that the total trade
of Canada in 1896 was $239,025,360
an increase in eighteen years under
Conservative rule of only $66,619,
906. He compared these figures
with the returns np to 30th June,
1907, which showed that the total
trade for the preceding year amounted to $617,964,952, or an increase in
eleven yenrs of Liberal r��le of $376,
Trade with Great Britain.
With respect to British trade, the
increase during the last eighteen
r r. .1 1 _��� c    company
years of Conservative rule was $16. !���,__,_ J,
297,311, Whereas the increase
from 1896 to 1907; during eleveu
years of Liberal rule, was $117,319,
460. Mr. Hall pointed out that
the increase in ttade was still in
progress, ior the tour months ending Oct 31, 1907, compared to the
corresponding four months ot 1906,
showed an increase of $31,396,307.
Trade  With Mexico.
Mr. Hall alluded to our trade
with Mexico which had developed
since 1896 from $37,876 to $1,137,-
734 in 1907. This Mexican trade
may be credited to the action of the
present government in encouraging
steamship service between the two
countries, for trade with Mexico
ha.1? expanded from $174,593 in
1905 to $1,137,784 in 1907. That
is, it is six times greater than it
was two years ago.
Immense Cheese Exports.
The exports of Canadian cheese
to Great Britain in 1896 amounted
to $25,000,000, nearly three times
as much as the exports from Holland and the United States com-
binsd. Mr. Hall gave proper credit
to the Agricultural Department for
its fostering care ot perishable
goods during transportation, in the
way of cold storage.
Increase in Railway Mileage.
Speaking of the increase iu railway mileage, Mr. Hall drew a comparison between the 16,270 miles
operated in 1896 and the 21,353
miles operated last year. The
freight carried in 1906 was 33,000,-
000 tons in excess of that carried in
S. S. 3t Home.
The Delta Council met in the The members of All Saints' Sun-
Council Chamber on Saturday, dav school entertained their friends,
Dec. 14th, at 2 p.m., with the. en Wednesday evening last, in the
Reeve, H. M. Vasey, in the cKair, j Town Hall, at an
and Couns. Gibbie, Davie. Gilchrist
Paterson and Dennis present.
Minutes of previous meeting
were adopted as read.
From Tupper & Griffin re V. V.
& E. expropriation for more
land needed in building the diverted highway, recommending that
the Council gazette the portions of
land required by the company.
Considerable discussion took
place as to the condition of the diverted road. An agreement which
had been drawn up by the company's solicitor, was read. The
company therein agrees to build
said road 18 feet wide and to renew
at the end of three years, the bulkhead, piling and sills of the bridge
over ravine at the north end, and
to protect the municipality against
all claims for damages entered by
settlers interested.
Tbe Reeve said he was in favor
of gazetting these portions of land
and signing the agre ment with the
since G. E. Martin had
filed a claim for $10,000 damages
against the Council. This, he said,
was the only way to protect the
municipality, aud the individual
settler would receive lair treatment
through the Council.
Coun. Gibbie was opposed to
gazetting these portions of land but
rather tbat the matter should go
before the Railway Commission, in
face ot the lact that the municipal
solicitor advised the gazette.
Communication re eived and filed
From   W.  J.   Bowser, Attorney
General,  stating that  the Council
have tull power to appoint any J. P.
as police magistrate.
From W. E. Curtis, asking for a
sidewalk on Challuckthan street.
On motion it was decided to build a
crossing tor the preset.
The River Highway By-law,
passed its first and second readings.
On the Ward By-law, 1907, being introduced for its second reading, Coun. Gilchrist spoke at some
length against it, saying that it
was a clear case of graft and the
worst piece of gerrymandering he
ever heard of. He did not see why
Ward III should be saddled with
the expense of maintaining tbe
River portion of Ward V just because East Delta was afraid that
they would not be able to elect a
Coun. Dennis said he had no
object in view other than that he
considered it to be lor the benefit of
Ward V.
Coun. Gibbie said it would be
very foolish for the settleip along
the river to think  that they could
At Home. There
I was   quite  a  lnrge attendance, tlie
' hall being comfortably filled. Quite
|a   lengthy   programme   had  been
prepared  for   the   occasion  which
I was   well   rendered   and  reflected
i great credit  upnn  those  who hud
charge of the arrangements as well
as upon those who  took  an active
part in  carrying  it out.    The well
known  handiwork  of Mrs. W. L.
McBride and H. J. Cresswell were
very   noticeable   in    the   staging.
During   the   evening  a  collection
was taken up by some of the young
ladies of the school  wbich  ran up
to tbe sum of $30 and over���a nice
assistance toward  the Xmas tree,

The Vicar, Rev. E. R. Bartlett,
made a short speech, before the programme came to a close, in which
he said the parents ot the children
attending the school have very
much to thank the superintendent,
A. DeR. Taylor, for, and he also
wished to draw attention to the
fact that the programme was carri
ed out entirely by the scholars.
The lilies used in the drill were
very skilfully made by Mrs. W. L.

Alluding to trade with France,
Mr. Hall said it was to the credit of
the Minister of Finance and the
Minister of Marine and Fisheries
that tbe barriers that have so long
stood iu the way between France
and Canada have now been removed. This was a reference to the
new treaty with France just concluded.
