Gang   ��f   Men   Making    EnclosureI
Heady for Filling In���Company
Still Kcticcnt Regarding Plans,
The B. C. E. R. has a gang of
about fourteen men at Ladner this
week preparing the enclosure ubove
the Transfer wharf for lining In.
When the piling and planking Is
reaily the King Edward will pump
the sand Inio the enclosure. It is
understood that the company Intend
to bulhl a large wharf, although for
what purposes no one, outside of the
company, Is In a position to state, and
the company Is very reticent of Its
plans. There Is this satisfaction to be!
obtained and that Is that the B. C.
B. R. have some plans in which Ladner and the Delta are to have a prominent place, and it looks as If the
movement in which they are concerned ls about to start soon.
The men working here expect that
It will be another week before they
are through. It is an Interesting fact,
as showing how the river bed changes,
to note that at the lower end of the
proposed wharf there Is about eleven
feet of water at low tide. A few
years ago, Capt. Rogers says, there
was at least sixty feet of water here.
A shooting fatality occurred at
Steveston during the early hours of
Monday morning, when Frank Davis,
a bookkeeper for the Butterman Cannery Company, opposite Steveston,
shot himself in his room. Death was
instantaneous and it is believed to
have been a case of suicide. Davis
is about 30 years of age and had been I
working for the Butterman Cannery
Co. for some time. He was a book-
keeper for Gt. E. Trorey, jeweler, of
Vancouver, for a number of years. I
He was unmarried and has relatives |
living in Ottawa.
Seattle, August 5.-���By reason of
numerous requests coming from livestock breeders throughout the United
States and Canada, the dates for entries in the Alaska-Yukon-Pacific
Live Stock Show have been extended
from August  1st to August 25th.
The $C3,500 In cash prizes which
the Exposition Is offering will bring
the best herds to this contest, and
many sales Will be held during the
stock show dates, September 27th
to October 9th. The leading horse
breeders and importers of the country will be on hand with their latest
and best importations, and it Is
found that ihe grounds which were
originally assigned to the stock show-
will have to be enlarged to accommodate the ever Increasing entries.
Cattle and horses in train loads will
be shipped over the various railroads
In special Pullman stock cars and
only the very best ot the breeds will
contest  for   highest   honors.
Xj one feature will create greater
general interest than the live stock
show and those who witness it will
see one of the best shows ever held
in the country and decidedly the biggest one ever contemplated west of
the Rofky Mountains.

LONDON", Aug. 2.���It is learned
that In order to confirm the official
status of the Canadian government
appointees in foreign countries and
place them beyond the restrictive influence of the British resident officials as was attempted in the recent
Preston controversy In Japan, which
might have seriously affected the
Hade prospects of Canada, the Colonial office has consented to he the
medium through which notification
shall be given the foreign governments of the appointment of a Canadian officials to foreign countries.
This, it is understood, is the outcome
of the recent strong representations
made by the Canadian government to
the Colonial office.
Body   of   "Scotty"   Smith   Found   nt
I'on Guichon.    Supposed to he
Victim  of Opium Poisoning,
The Times has received a long letter from Air. John Oliver, M. L. A.,
finding fault with the statement in
this paper that Minister Pugsley did
not think it necessary to call at Ladner, when he passed recently a few
yards distant from our landing. The
letter is too long to publish in full,
and besides It Is too bell.gerent In
tone for the Times, as we are anxious
to live at peace with our neighbors.     i
So far as we can make out, Mr.
Oliver intimates that no one asked
the Minister to call at Ladner, because although the Reeve asked Mr.
Oliver to arrange this matter with the
Minister it was too late when he gjt
the message, us Air. Oliver had to
leave lor the Interior early next
morning. He also states that it was
the duly of the federal representative
to have asked Air. Pugsley to visit
Air. Taylor,  the federal  representative,  being asked  about  the    matter,
said he would have been glad to have
helped out Air. Oliver If he hud been
asked,   particularly  as  he   found   Air.
Pugsley  very   obliging   lu   the   matter I
of making engagements to visit other
points  as  to  which Mr. Taylor    pre-]
sented the requests of residents.    Mr.
Taylor was on the boat with the Mln- I
Ister  when   he   passed   up  the    river
from Steveston, and  took the oppor-
tunity,  as  they  passed  within a    few j
yards of the dyke at Ladner to show I
the Minister  the  works    which    hlsj
government have assisted already and |
to  mention  other  departmental  mat- j
ters of Interest to Ladner to him and!
his colleague  Air.    Templeman.    Mr.
Taylor  recalls  that he  took up    this
matter   on   the   floor   of   parliament,
and  differed   there  from     the    stand
taken by Air. Pugsley, who then lately
had  boon  visited by  Air.  Oliver,  that
there was not great responsibility on
the part of  the  federal  g ivernment
In this connection.    Mr. Taylor points I
out that to the extent to which    the
blocking of the channel and the erosion of the dykes Is due to the neglect
of the federal  government    to make
and  maintain  a  proper channel  from
Ladner to  the Gulf,  the federal government   Is   directly   responsible,  and
he feels satisfied that presentation of
this view nt Ottawa would be effective
in inducing the    government    to g ve
greater    attention    to    conditions    at
Alexander Smith, bettor known as
'"Scotty" .Smith, was found dead In an
old barn at Port Guichon last Saturday. Just what was the cause of
death Is not known, although it is
.suspected that it was the result of
opium poisoning. Dr. Woodley held
a post-mortem examination, and a
coroner's inquest was held. The Jury,
composed of Messrs. Thos. E. Ladner,
John McKeo, W. -H. Smith, W. A.
Kirkland. John Relgh and W. H. Wil-
sin, adjourned until to-day (Satur-
daj i. in the meantime contents of
the stomach have been sent to Vancouver for a thorough analysis, when
the juiy will complete their work.
Toe deceased was a Well-known
character both here and at Chilliwack, as he lived at buth places for
the past ten years or more. He was
about 40 years of age, a Canadian
und a shoemaker by trade, although
latterly he had not worked much at
that trade, coming here during the
hay season. He was unmarried and,
as far as known, had no relatives In
this  part  of  the  country.
Many Delta Citizens Will See Rlngllnf
Show at Vancouver.
A great many Ladner people are
going to Vancouver on Monday, Aug.
1(1, to the Rlngflng Pros.' Circus. It
will be the only opportunity this year
and tho railroads are preparing to
handle thousands of visitors from the
surrounding territory, Rlngling
Brothers have made many Improvements since they last appeared In
tills part of the country. Al Madison
Square Garden, New York, where the
season began, the performances were
attended nightly by the biggest
crowds that ever saw a circus in Manhattan, and the newspapers were not
backward about saying that the Rlngling Brothers were presenting, in
every respect, the best entertainment
of the kind ever given there. The
performances In Vancouver will be
identical with those given In the Garden, not the slightest, change having
been made In the lonog programme.
The circus offered this year Is one
of wonderful novelty. Instead of the
usual single thriller presented by
other circuses, the Ringling Brothers
are heading their bill with no less
than seven of the greatest and most
sensational acts that have ever been
presented anywhere on earth.
, The parade will be given in the
forenoon. It will far surpass the
brilliant pageants which the Rlngling
Brothers have given in past years,
having been entirely rebuilt ln the
foreign workshops of the show at
Liverpool,   Eng.
COWES, Aug. 4.--Emperor Nicholas, who Is here on a visit to King

On August H8rd the Rev. Hamlltoi
Wigle, pastor of Zlon Church, Winnl
peg, will lecture In Ladner.
The Rev. Air. Wigle Is an emlnem
divine well known throughout thi
west. As a lecturer he has been mosi
successful, especially with the leoturi
"A Alodern Crusade," which he Is to
give here. On Sunday, August 22nd.
he will occupy the pulpit of the
Methodist   Church. The   following
evening he will deliver his lecture
in McNeely's Hall. "A Alodern Crusade" is the account of a trip taken
by a party of some seven hundred
people, a few years ago, of which Mr.
Wigle was one, from Xew York to
the Holy Land. The scenes commence at New York and, after embracing old world centres, wind up at
Calgary. Those who have heard the
lecture say that it Is a splendid narration, at once humorous, pathetic
and eloquent. It is popular in Winnipeg, where It has been given as many
as three times In the large Winnipeg churches.
What should add to the entertainment here is that during the evening
the Ladles' Aid Society of the Methodist Church  Will serve  refreshments.
In reference to the protest put In
by the Indians against the proposed
site of the rifle range of the Ladner
Rifle Club, R. C. McDonald, of New
Westminster, Indian agent, was 'here
last Friday. After looking over the
ground he decided to have the land
surveyed to determine where the
reservation  line   runs.
The   announcement   was   made   on

On the directorate appears the name
' of a Delta citizen, Thomas E. Ladner.
The new  company   was  granted  a
I'harter by special act  of Parliament
I at  the  last  session,   which  called   for
the   sale   of   $250,000   of   the   capital
stock  of  the  company before  a   permanent  organization   could  be  effected.     Up  to  the   present  subscriptions
for over  $300,000  have, been received
and paid for, and at a general meeting of the company held recently, the
following   officers   were   elected;
President,    Jonathan    Rogers;     1st
! vice-president, John J. Banfleld;    2nd

the   wounded  man  progresses.

Ha-   Plan   re   Marketing
of   I'lull.
Next council meeting II Is likely a
dale will be set for the calling together of a meeting at Ladner to discuss
lie advisability of forming a board of
trade for this district. Ther la no
doubt that the proposition will bi i -
thUBiastlcally taken up hi re. C. H.
Wade, the secretary of the New Westminster Board of Trade, has off oJ
his   services   to  address   the   nice. ing.
here Is an Instance where a board
of trade can prove useful.
Talking to fruit growers throughout the district, Mr. Wade says lie
finds an unsatisfactory state of affairs regarding the prices the farmers have been receiving from Eastern and Vancouver purchasers. Pr i-
fltable sale has been practically
stopped by the actions of the dealers
and many now prefer to leave their
fruit in the fields rather than sell It
at the prices offered. One man ln
Maple Ridge told Air. Wade recently
that he had shipped 4 0 boxes of fruit
to the Bast receiving $2.!>ij u case
or seven cents a box. This was his
return after growing the fruit, picking it, packing it, and hauling it for
shipment. This was not a rare Incident, and fruit growers generally had
been discouraged by trie methods of
outside  dealers.
It is to cope with such problems
as these, that Ihe boards of trade,
now being organized throughout the
district, will be called on to deal with,
united action by the whole district should quickly remedy the situation. When all the proposed boards
In the district are organized, a plan
is to be put forth that it is hoped
will most effectively cope with the
present difficulty.

The following letter in the News-
Advertiser is iii reference to remarks
which were quoted In our issue last
"Sir,���In your column of last week
you make reference to the Increased
number of ducks bred locally, and
hazard as the reason the better en-
forcetnenl of the game laws. My observations are limited to the mouth
of Ihe Fraser and the Delta lands.
In that district the increase In the
numbers of locally bred ducks during
the past four breeding seasons is very
marked. At first it was only notice-,
able to those who were naturally ob- i
servant and took an Interest In bird j
life, but in the present season the I
Increased number of young birds is
s i large that it Is being remarked
by almost all the residents of this
district. I have no doubt ii is the
same at the Pitt Meadows and other
places. Without hesitation 1 may say
that ii is undoubtedly due to the better enforcement of the game law
(particularly the shortening of the
snipe season). The birds find they
are no longer disturbed by shooters
In the early spring and are resuming
their old habits. The Provincial Game
Warden's Department has my sympathy and regard If I may be allowed to express It, Considering the
small amount of money appropriated
to ihe protection of our game 1 think

ViICTORlA, Aug. 4. ��� Reports
brought by the Tees from Quatsino
show that the U. S, halibut fishers
are ever on the alert to take fish
withing the three-mile-limit. That
there Is abundance of halibut is proved by the fact that the British
schooner Simla took 15,000 pounds
off the entrance to Quatsino Sound
in   12 hours only a short time ago.

HAMILTON, Aug. 4.-The Hamilton Presbytery has accepted the
resignation of Rev. F C. Harper, pastor of Drummondville church, after
the committee had investigated tho
charges against him. The Presbytery
regrets the indescretlon on the part
of the minister, but rejoices that
f nothing has been adduced that can In
any way reflect on his moral character. The committee reported that
It. had found that for some time conditions of things had existed which
seriously affected the work of the
church nnd congregation and that
many refused to attend the church
service or contribute to the church
because of the neglect of ministerial
visitation Too many visits were paid
and too much time was being spent
by the pastor with one of the ladles
of his congregation and rumor was
busy nnd tales were current about
these visits. THE DELTA TIMES

Those who wish to see the natural
resources of the province preserved
so that they will become a permanent aud profitable source of income to
the inhabitants will Wait anxiously
for the report of the International
Fisheries Commission which is now
in these waters, Naturally, until
their report is made public the commissioners will say nothing. According to them the flrst draft of the report has been made and their prolonged slay oh the coast is for the
purpose of confirming their views and
making   possible   amendments.
Those who have followed the salmon situation at all will know that it
is far from satisfactory. By the annual run of the sockeyes to the Fraser
each year a great industry has been
found, one that for a few weeks of
each year gives employment to a
great many men and in which a large
amount ol capital is invested. Tne
flrst years of the industry there were
plenty of fish and all were fairly well
Latterly, however, more men
engaged in the industry, the Japanese
have crowded into it by the thousands, tin traps have spread themselves over mil's and miles of the
waters through which the fish make
their way to the spawning gi
and where there were once
sands of feet of net now there are
millions. As the industry has grown
there has been friction between Canadian and American fishermen. Tne
latter want the fish preserved at our
expense, the Canadians want to see
the restrictions applied to ihe Americans as well as themselves. As
years have passed the gravity ot
situation has become more apparent.
Expert knowledge has been brought
to bear on the question
experience  of   -
we know that if the present m. thods
are continued, that if there be not a
more amicable understanding and
more harmony In the matter of the
of   the   salmon   that   the
School Inspector Stewart paid a
visit to Ladner on Wednesday, interviewing members of the School
Hoard on a question of the greatest
moment to the people of this district. It has to do with the teaching
ot high school work in the Ladner
schools. Briefly stated, the project Is
to teach the first two years in the
high  school  course here.
At present Delta pupils wishing to
take up high school work are compelled to attend in New Westminster
or Vancouver. This is not always
j convenient. In the flrst place It entails a considerable outlay of money,
more Ulan many parents are In a
1 position to expend, and secondly, the
successful students in the entrance
class are in most cases very young,
too young to be sent to a strange city
where they have to shift for themselves, away from home influences.
Thus it naturally happens that the
children of the district are handicapped in their education and have
not the same chance as those of the
city  schools.
No definite arrangements have as
yet been decided upon, but it is proposed to have Aliss McNeill take
Charge of the entrance class* and the
high -school work. She is herself a
university product, quite capable of
conducting high school work, and as
has been proven in the past, a most
capable and ambitious teacher. This,
of course, would entail a little more
work on the other teachers also, but
work which they are thoroughly
qualified to do. It is not concluded
that the new arrangement will prove
any more expensive than at flrst, but
even if it does, the results obtainable
are well worthy of it. It places an
opportunity, not to be lost, before
Delta scholars. In two years students can make great advancement
in high school work, achieving, we
understand, Ihe third class certificate
course so that they can go away and
write j>n these examinations and
qualify as teachers eventually, when
they have reached the age set by the
Successful entrance pupils, who at
the time were too young to go away
to continue their work, after the
course here would be better qualified
to go to Vancouver or Xew Westminster, or for an ambitious boy or girl
who would not have had the opportunity on account of finances, to enter high school, alter his two years'
course here, no doubt the way would
be opened up for further progress.
In fact the benefits of establishing
Ihe two year course here arc so altogether favorable that it is not presumed that there will be any opposition to Inspector Stewart's plan. The
School Hoard will meet on Saturday
to  consider   the  matter.

for a big year. The system is sweeping the sockeye from the breeding

An Uncle Sam ?
K Query Appropriate to the Independence
Day Anniversary ��� History of the
Origin and Development of an
Interesting Custom.
THE recurrence of the anniversary of the nation's birth suggests inquiries about niauy
customs connected with its celebration. One of the pictures that the
mind frames iu thinking of the events
of the ever glorious Fourth is that of
Uncle Sam lining characteristic stunts
by way of expressing his feelings of
Satisfaction on his natal day. Nobody
needs to be told that Uncle Sam ls 11
personification of the American people.
But how did it happen the nation came
to be typified in this character? One
authority gives this definition of the
phrase "Uncle Sam:"' "The government of Ihe people of the United
Stales; a jocular extension of the initials V. S."
This Idea is strikingly confirmed in
the words of the old song, two lines
of which ready,
For ttnele Snm is rich enough
To give us all a farm,
tho obvious implication being that the
federal govern ment owns���or tit the
time the song was composed did own
���enough vacant land���"government
land." us it litis been termed���to give
every citizen homestead rights.
It was quite natural that the initials
"U. S.," standing for United Slates,
should in lline come to have a meaning such as they have been given. But
It was necessary for the custom to be
started in some way, and it is claimed
that there was originally a real Uncle
Sum. "Fugitive Facts," by Robert
Thorne. says: "The practice of calling
the United States government  'Uncle
Delta in the company
Rochester 2
Sum' is believed to have originated in
the following mauner: During the Revolutionary war a man named Samuel
Wilson was a beef inspector at Troy.
X. Y., and was very popular with the
men in his employ, who always called
him 'Uncle Sam." After the Inspection
of the beef it was shipped by him to
a contractor named Elbert Anderson
and was always marked 'E. A, U. S."
A joking workman, being asked what
those letters wore ihe abbreviations
of. replied that he did not know unions
they were for Elbert Anderson and
'Uncle Sam.' The joke was kept up
and spread until It became common to
refer to nil packages marked 'U. S.' as
belonging to 'Uncle Sam.'"
"Fugitive Facts" appears to be In
error us to the war In question being
the Revolutionary war. Evidently it
was the war of 1812, There Is residing at the preseni time lu the borough
of Brooklyn. New York city, a lady
who Is a lineal descendant of Ihe original Uncle Som, She says that he was
born In New Hampshire about the

one of the early settlers of Troy. In

familiarly known as "Uncle Sam," erected the dwelling In which he resided many
years.     He   furnished   beef   to   military
camps during the war of 1S12.   The Troy
roldlers called It I'r.elo Sam's beef.   Others,
supposing  the  name  referred  to  the  Inspector's mark. "U. S.." gradually applied
It to all government property, and "Uncle
Sam"    came    'o    designate    the    United
States, first throughout the army and ultimately everywhere.
"Uncle Snm" Wilson died In Troy on
July 1, 1854. aged eighty-eight years.
His old home escaped the fires of 1820
and 1862 and stood until recently.
There died Inst May in New York

I believe fills more charitable nnd
appreciative view of I'aiue 1ms now
become general. The acceptance of
his monument by New Rochelle and
of his house by the Huguenot association, together with the naming of an
avenue in his honor, is an evidence.
Other signs of his renaissance are to
be found in the appreciative reviews
in recent magazines and newspapers
not only In America, but In England
and France, the acceptance of his portrait'in Independence hall ln'1870" and
of his statue a few years ago, the fact
that a Philadelphia paper In calling
for candidates In the Hull of Fame
got more .votes for Paine than any other one man and the existence of one or
two national associations formed for
the express purpose of perpetuating his
memory. It is undeniable that I'alne

holiday. Yet I suppose it is all right.
If .lack cannot save any more ships he
i.ui at least save money.
But, while Coney is open, it is not
wide open, and thereby hangs a tale of
woe; also a lawsuit. At 12 o'clock
sharp Saturday night fifty unfeeling
[policemen clumped down Coney so
llghl that even Ihe barkers' faces had
to close up. It broke the show owners'
hearts and almost broke their pocket-
1 Its.   Investigation showed tbn   the
mayor was behind the tight lid order,
nnd now the Coney showmen are suing
the eiiy. gelling out Injunctions and
yelling for Sunday money. Only four
' r live months to separate people from
their change and then to have one day
out of seven taken away from them,
and the best day of the week at that���
it is too much! No wonder the venders
of hot dogs and cold beers are growl-
big and foaming.
Incidentally Coney Is causing trouble lo the roosters. Down nt Shcops-
hend Rny the poor fowls are deluded
by I ho Coney rockets Into the belief
that dawn Is breaking nil night, nnd
they keep up n continual crowing that
would wuke up even,William Trnvers
Jerome. Now, n rooster may think
thnt the Declaration of Independence
assures him the right to crow as well
ns to pursue happiness and worms, but
ll' lie lives at Sbeepsheitd Bay he is i
mistaken. Tho owners of the fowls |
have been ordered to shut off either
their music or their existence, nnd for
that renson the hens of that vicinity
will probably lie widows without going
to Ihe divorce court..
\or Is Sheepshead Rny the only region In which the roosters are causing j
tn able.   Up New Rochelle wny there
was  so  much  crowing recently  thnt j
I Hie matter was taken before (he judge, |
wlio   solemnly   Issued   an   injunction |
against chanticleer tearing loose  his '
steam siren before time for the commuters   to   catch   their   trains.    The
owner of the particular rooster thus
laugled up In the legal machinery expressed his sorrow, but what could a )
peer man do? Would some one please j
tell him how to keep a rooster from
crowing or to regulate it like nn alarm
clock?   Thereupon  one correspondent
suggested   the   remedy   of   Herbert
Siicnccr, who, It would seem, wns wise
to roosters, even if he wns n philosopher.     When    Spencer's    chanticleer
awakened him he proceeded to tie its
wings, well knowing that no cock will
crow   if   be   cannot   flap   his   wings.
Firmly tying the rooster's neck might
also help'.
Recurring to the unesenpnWo pouch
basket hat, one of these millinery
monstrosities recently proved nearly
fatal to one poor man. Crossing a
bridge over the Ilnrlem. Michael Con-
Ion saw n peach basket hat afloat and
jumped Into the stream to rescue the
woman underneath. When he reached
the hat no woman was there. Swimming with his clothes on, he lost
Btvengtb and wns with difficulty rescued
nnd sent to the hospital to recover.
Now, if thnt hnd been a civilized hat
poor Conlon could have seen whether
a woman wns under it or not; but, being n peneh basket, it might hnve concealed anything, even to a sunken scow.

LONDON, Aug. 2.���The sub-committee of the Imperial Defence Conference, appointed to confer on matters of aviation, has given a verdict
for rigid dirigible balloons for naval
purposes, and non-rigid balloons for
the army. The aeroplane committee
considers that these machines possibly may become' valuable to the
army, but say that they must be able
to ascend to a much greater height
than yet has been achieved before
they will be useful for reconnoitering
purposes. Mr. Haldane announced in
the House of Commons this afternoon
that iu consequence of this report the
Admiralty had ordered a rigid
dirigible of the largest typo from
Viekers, Son & Maxim, and that the
government factory at Aldershot was
busy with the construction of three
n m-rigid ball ions and two aeroplanes
for experimental purposes. Mr. Haldane said in addition: "The remarkable events of recent days���M.
Blerlot's flight across the Channel,
and the .flights In America���all point
to the fact that some time In the
future the aeroplane will bo capable
of bringing out great  results."
