Thirty eight yean ago on the
I4Hi* <lay of May i.ext the first May
Day celebrHtioi. was held in New
Westminster ai the cticket grounds.
The- custom bas been observed
-���very year with one exception, 1878,
und the children ol thai city have
always grown up, knowing and
--.peeling tbat this one day of the
ijear wonld be dt voted 10 their en-
At a large and enthusiastic meet- j
wig herd in the board of trade
neoni lasl week it was decided to
observe tbe custom again this sea
con, and judging frim the attendance, tbe best in yeara, the coining
celebration will be larger aud better
than ever. Friday, the first day of
.May. was decided ou as the date
\.fm the iestlvities.
On Friday evening last, a number of the young folks chartered
the S.S, Sonoma and took a nip to
Annacis Island, where they spent
a good tirae at the home of Mr.
and Mrs. Fred Parmiter, dancing
being kept up till 2 o'clock a.m.,
when the return trip was -made.
Among those present were:
Mrs.'D. Anderson, eha erone.

From what we bear  of arrange-1

confidently expect to spend a very
pleasant  evening.     There will  lei
an  informal   programme and Mi.1.j

Mciiee Wins Suit.
Judgment has been handed down
by His Honor Judge Howay in the
case of L. W. Embree vs. D. A.
McKee, allowing tbe sum of $93.50
to the defendant in settlement of
tbe suit.
Tbe written judgment was as follows.
At the trial I over-ruled Mr.
Griffin's objection and admitted
evidence to identify the subject
matter referred to in the memorandum vex 1) and to show that the
expression "75 tons more or less"
was a compendious way of saying
all the bay in the Brown barn except 30 tons.
On consideration I am confirmed
in this view. I find as a fact that
the contract between the parties\
was for the purchase and sale of all,
the hay in the Brown barn except:
30 tons, i.e., 92 tons. Indeed tliis|
was hardly seriously disputed.
It was admitted that 74 tons and :
1465 lbs. were delivered thereunder.
The remainder, 17 tons and 535 lbs,!
was not delivered, but was sold by ;
the plaintiff (defendant by counter;
claim) at from $23 to $25 a ton.       !
Taking the lower figure the j
plaintift [ efendant by counter
claim] has received $5.50 per ton
on 17 tons and 535 los., which belonged to the detendant [plaintifl
by counter claim].
There will be judgment therefore
for the defendant {plaintifl by counter claim] for $93.50 and costs.
The Delta Council met in tbe
Council Chamber on Saturday last,
March 38th, at 2 p.m., with the
Reeve, [. A. Paterson, in the
