on its duties, and its report and recommendation will be submitted to
you. In accordance with those recommendations, legislation will be
introduced to secure a more equitable and efficient system oi distribution of water for irrigation purposes.
The large increase in immigration, with the consequent' demand
for land under pre-emptions, warrants my Government in asking
you to place a larger sum in the
estimates for an extension of the
Provincial surveys.
A measure will be laid before you
with a view to restrictions ol the
immigration of undesirable persons.

Editor Delta Times:
sSir: Apropos of your Ottawa
Letter in your issue of the 7th inst.,
the enclosed clipping from the Toronto News, an Independent paper
with strong Liberal leanings, appears to come nearer the truth, especially as friend Willisou gives
reasons for his conclusions, something tbe writers of your Ottawa
Letters fail to do:
"Losing Ground���Certain Liberal papers throughout the country
describe Centre York as "a former
Tory hive" and argue that under
the circumstances the Liberal candidate did well iu tbe bye-election.
As a matter of fact, however, Centre York was created by the redistribution of 1901 aud it was made a
safe constituency for Mr. Arch.
Campbell. But Mr. Campbell ran
badly in the last general election,
and Dr. McLean, although a much
stronger candidate, came out of the
bye-election with a still smaller
majority. It was the confident expectation of Liberals that his majority would have reached two or
three hundred. Tbis was a reasonable expectation and the lact that
the majoiity was so small ig signal
proof of the declining strength of
the Laurier government in Ontario.
There is to be added to the loss of
strength in Centre York the election of a Conservative in London,
the re.ltictiou of tbe Liberal majority iu North Wellington, and
the increase of the Conservative
majority in East Northumberland.
In Nora Scotia, also, a seat has
been capt tired by tbe opposition.
Indsed the government sterns to be
holding its own only iii Quebec."
[We would as soon, believe that
W. J. P. has Strong Liberal leanr
ing; as 'hat Friend WilKson has.
It looks more like Liberal-Conservative leanings.���En.]

The Market.
New Westminster. Jan. 18���
At the regular ^eekly lnprinet yesterday the- farmers of the district
succeeded in disposing of a large
amount of pp-odaice. The attendance of buyers was large- and good
prices were obtained for- nearly all
tines. A decrease in the price oi\
eggs was noticeable whilp poultry,
apples and some other staples real-,
ized better prices than at formef
The supply of beef was large.and
under; stiff demand the entire supply was cleared! out. Prices remained the same as those of last
week, namely, from 7}��c to 8}<_c
for hindquarters and from 5J_Jcto
6j4c for forequarters. The demand
forj mutton was again very active
but the supply was much too small,
for local demands. AH car,cases.
were cleared off the stalls eaTly in
the d#y at prices ranging around
13c a pound. Lamb was also
scarce a*��d sold at 14c a pound. The
supply of veal is now about equal
to the demand and there- is some
probability ' that quotations will
lower slightly in the near future..
Small carcases were in good demand at from i,oJ/j.c to njic per
pound while larger calv��s brought
about 7>_.c or 8c a pound under a
limited demand. Pork was in considerable supply and sold at from
8c to 9c a pound. Nearly ull, the
available pork was cleared out.
A large number of fowls were
placed on sale and good prices obtained. Good fowls br,ought as
high as $9 and' $10 whilte others
of a medium grade were s< Id ut
from $6.50-to $8; 50 per doien. A
large apmbe* of good hens tor laying purposes were disposed of at
prices, ranging around JSi.o. The
supply of ducks was small aud the
demand not oves active. The
stock was cleared out at (fosn $9 to
J>io a dozen. A lew geese were
disposed of at from $1 to $1.25
each. Good prices for iowls will
no doubt be obtained during the
,ne.x;t two wteks at leatst.
The supply of eggs was very
large and prices dsopped to 35c
Wholesale. Quite * few dozens
were disposed of af 40c to private
Butter was not so plentiful as last
w'eek'but quite equal to the de-
rnand and sold' at 35c and 40c a lb.
The- price of | otatoes underwent
a rise from the old figure of $18 a
ton to j-%o. The supply from the
Delta was unusually targe and
most ot the growers were successful in clearing out their stock at $1
per sack. The stock, was a little
heavy ior the demand.
Apples sold a,t fiom $1 to $1.75
a bos.
