to enable upwards of nineteen pupils
i , attend.

Man    Who      Introduced    Canadian
Wheat    in Japan   Visits
Mr. and Mrs. D. Anderson were
guests for the last week end with
Mr. and Mrs. D. B. Grant. Mr. Anderson is well known In the East,
having been connected with the government experimental farm at Ottawa. For the last eleven years he
has been prominent on the staff of
the Canadian exhibit In Japan, he
being the first to Introduce Canadian
wheat into the Japanese market. It
was necessary to distribute the
bread free for some time In order to
cultivate a taste for It among the
natives, who afterwards aquired
such a liking for it that police protection was needed to avoid trouble
when the hour of distributing waa
at hand. This was the means of
opening the Canadian market for
wheat In that part of the Orient,
which Is now one of the most profitable places that Canada Imports
wheat to. Mr. Anderaon was also at
the exhibition held in London at
the time of the Coronation, having
just returned after two years
abroad in connection with this work.
They are now on their way to the
exhibition at San Francisco In
I''Iii, and will hnve charge of the
' uiaillan exhibit there.

A regular meeting of the W. C. T.

large number of regular members

meeting was devoted entirely t.i
Tlie advisability of having a pub-
He playground for the children of
Ladner was fully discussed ami approved by all. This has been a
Brest benefit In larger towns, and
there Is no reason why a smaller
town should not also have one. It
was suggested to ask the Ladner
Estate to donate a piece of property
suitable, as the grounds will In all
probability be named after the town.
Mrs. Ladner, with Mrs. I). B.
���'"ant, gnve an account of the Victoria convention, she quoted from
'he report of Mrs. Irvine, or Nanaimo on anll-narcotlcs. She also told
*'hat Mr. Eaton, a returned mission-

Mr. Kittson claimed Mr. Curtis
passed him on the wrong side of the
road and was speeding, as Mr. Kittson was going just the speed limit,
and in order for Mr. Curtis to pass
it was necessary to exceed the limit.
Mr. Curtis pleaded guilty and was
fined $20 and costs, but stated that
the complainant kept the centre or
the road tor three miles and would
not give up enough ror the defendant
to puss on the right side.
Mr. Kittson, when questioned as
to his reason for not yielding the
road iu order the other machine
could pass, said he did not know-
it was necessary when he was going
as fast as the law allowed. Mr. Kittson was fined $15 and costs for not
giving up part of the road. This was

Reminiscences of the Early
Settlers' Struggles.
(From  The  British  Columbian.)
Nathaniel Larmon, of Fort Langley,
held there recently, Rev. Ur. Dunn,
the pioneer Presbyterian missionary,
made the following reference to the
life of one of the esteemed oid-time
residents of the Fraser Vallej*:
"The funeral of another of the
remaining few of Langley's early
settlers has brought us together to-
hief'y. One fall, having stored a
quantity sufficient for home use, he
thought he could afford to sell a ton
in New Westminster. There was no
sale for them at home. Potatoes
were the commodity which every
settler hid abundance. Accordingly
he got his potatoes sacked and loaded on his sleigh the previous after-
day. The late Nathaniel Larmon,noon so that next morning, long became to Langley in 1875, so that tore daybreak, he started for New

New Westminster, particularly in
the green  timber, there were some
Statement  of a  few  facts connected   veritable "sloughs of despond," diffi-
with the history of the deceased
since his arrival in this district will,
I think, be opportune and fitted,
perhaps, to furnish desired information to those who have lately come,
and who may have an imperfect idea
of the manner of life which the early
settler was obliged to live.
"When Mr. Larmon arrived in
Langley with his young wife in '75
the money he had brought with bim
from Belfast had all been spent in
travelling, except $15. And if $15,
with the high cost of living, would
��t go far now, it would not go a
rther but a shorter distance then.
The great difficulty then for a man
without money was the difficulty of
obtaining employment. 1 mean remunerative employment. Few, if
any, could afford to hire a mun even
at a dollar a day.
"On coming to Langley he settled
on a bush claim adjoining the eastern boundary of the Hudson Bay
Company's farm. Of course, there
was no house on it, nor a foot of
cleared land. At once he proceeded
to build a small house of split cedar
and cedar poles. Furniture be could
not alford to buy. lt wa.s therefore
necessary to make certain articles of
furniture which, as I remember,
were plain enough and homely
"After lie had been here for about
a year 1 went one evening to baptise
his first child, Samuel. When I got
there he and Mrs. Larmon were at
their evening meal, which consisted
of potatoes and. 1 think, milk. 1
saw no bread, no butter, no tea.
Blessed with uninterrupted good
health he worked steadily on, gathering around him some stock, pigs,
hens nnd a cow.
"Of all things, he dreaded debt,
and fought hard and successfully to
keep clear of it. Deeming store
provisions not really necessary to a
substantial, wholesome diet, and living mainly 1111 the produce of their
land, his store hill was always light,
and never contracted till tbey could
sec their way clear to pay it. But
without going further into details
upon that matter, let me say, he
struggled on and up, assisted in the
course of time by bis family, clearing and Improving land, erecting a
new, commodious dwelling and out-
houses, until in 18li5 he sent us,
then living at Whonnock. an Invitation to come down on n certain day
and visit tbem, arranging to meet us
ut   Fort   Langley.     . We went,  and
cult enough to cross with an empty
sleigh.    At different points he was
obliged     to  partially    unload,   and
pack the sacks a distance till firm
gTound was reached, then return for
his team and reload.    So exhausting
and disspiriting was the work that
at times he thought the Westminster
end of the road he would never see.
How often be thought of the splendid roads around Belfast, which he
had left only a few years, I cannot
tell;  be was not the man to spend
much time In vain regrets.    At tbe
"long  last"  Brown's   Landing   was
reached, both man and beasts being
thoroughly fagged  out.      The  first
thing to be done was to find a boat
to ferry his potatoes across the river
which, having obtained, he managed
to do at two trips.    The next thing
was  (and  now the  critical anxious
moment had come) to find a buyer.
He spent several hours in interviewing  the  merchants  of the town  as
well as a number of private citizens,
without success, the merchants declaring  that a  sloop had just been
In from the American side with "a
whole lot of potatoes."    What  was
he to do?   He must either take them
back home or empty them into the
Fraser-River.    The former he could
not  think of attempting, the latter,
expedient,,   from    moral    considerations, he hated to do.    In his perplexity  he met Charlie McDbnough
on Front street, who cheerfully gave
him leave to store them in his cellar, volunteered to do his best to get
a buyer, and gave him a few dollars
with which to defray the expenses or
the trip.    His heart sore, the kindness of McDonbugh to him in his extremity he never ofrgot.    The experience of Larmon was the experience
of many, both on the Langley and
Maple Rldge sides of the river.
One night in the winter of '76-
'77, there was in the Larmon home
a -erious case of illness, where a
physician's skill was deemed essential at the earliest possible moment.
In those days there was no physician outside New Westminster, and
New Went mi nster was 21 miles distant. .Mr. Larmon seized his coat
and set out. Over the worst kind
Oi road, without a lantern, he made
for Fort Langley, walking at his
highest rate of speed, and running
whenever possible. Once there, he
soon gained the sympathetic ear of

Company's store. To the stranger

From Robert Kelly, stating that

to get the G. N. R. to put in a side

wishing to know if the council were

In connection with the matter.
From the Dominion Glazed Cement Pipe Co., Ltd., accepting the
(ouncll'R offer of $50 each for three

From Cleveland & Cameron, re
the much disputed Johnston road,
as follows: "According to your Instructions we have made a re-establishment of the easterly boundary
of sections 22, 16 and the north half
of 10, In township 2, under the provisions of the Official Surveys Act.
At the southerly end of this line Is
a burled bottle marking the position of the quarter section post on
the east boundary of section 10,
which is verified by the evidence of
the men who removed the post. At
the northerly end one of the original bearing trees still remains. Between these points which are commonly accepted as correct, many surveys have been made and many different re-establishments of the section lines have resulted. There are
also several posts new and old which
are claimed as correct in position by
some and which are said by others
to have been moved when the road
was built. It Is however unnecessary for us lo enter upon the history of the ense, for you are already
weil informed In regard to these
"Two plans are being forwarded
to   you    under   separate   cover,   one
I marked a, being a section outline
plan on n scale of 20 chains to one
im li. and the other marked B, being
a road  plan on  a scale  of  2nn   fee
to  one  inch.     Referring  to   plan   A.
there is nn old post near the school
which  we have  indicated   liy  X,  nn-
nther  old   post  near  the  corner  of
line Johnston road and Newton rond
which wc bave marked V. and ,1 third

I marked Z.    Without going Into full
j details,  we may say that  we believe
from our work upon the ground thai
j the old  posts nt X nnd  Y  stand  in
(the original   positions, but It  is  ini-
possible to prove this positively. We
think that if the facts In regard to
the   relative   positions  of   these  cor-
'ners   were      laid   before   a   Judicial
jmlnd, such  would In all probability
be    supported.    We    recognize,    of
course,   that  strong  evidence   would
be submitted to prove that the posts
have been moved but equally strong
evidence can be found for the other
side and we have felt that too much
reliance  has  bpon  placed   upon  this
contradictory  evidence.     Should you
the reasons for our belief that the
posts at X and Y are at the true corners, we shall be pleased to submit
"There were two courses open to
us in establishing the centre line of
the Johnston road; one in which we
would accept the posts at X and Y,
and the other in which we would
adopt a straight line for the two
and one-half miles and give each
quarter section its aliquot part 01
the total distance. This latter plan
we have adopted in spite of our belief in the former, for the following reasons:
"(1). Such a line disregards entirely all intervening posts, which
are claimed by some as having been
moved from their original positions
and we have treated the posts as of
no value because of the uncertainty
regarding them.
"(2). By adopting this line we
have taken less Improved land from
the westerly side.
"(3). All the" owners at one time
agreed upon such a line and signed
an agreement to that effect.
"(4). A road built upon this line
Is of more value for road purposes
than one determined bv the posts at
X and Y.
"We are fully aware of the opposition which our work Is sure to
arouse and we are submitting it as
the fairest and most reasonable
solution of all the trouble. It is
useless, we believe, to make further
surveys, and no other course seems
open In case opposition arises than
to lay the whole matter before the
courts. Our recommendation is
that you adopt this line and carry
tho whole matter to a termination
of the disputes, and we can assure
you that, our evidence will be of
some value In support of your case."
This communication was received
and on motion it was decided that
the centre line of the Johnston road,
as established by Messrs. Cleveland
and Cameron, be adopted by the
council, and that all Interested parties be Instructed to move their respective fenceB off the road limits on
or before July 18, 1914.

B.C. Telephone Company Would Pay
$1500 for Richmond Farmers'
CAMBIE, Lulu Island, July 7.���A
flat offer of $1500 for the lines and
equipment of the Farmers' Telephone Company was made by Mr.
McGougan, of the B.C. Telephone
Company, in a letter received by the
Richmond council yesterday. Reeve
Bridge declared it mattered little
what the B.C. Telephone Company
paid for the farmers' system���what |
was wanted was definite Information now regarding tbe rates the
company would levy in Richmond.
He expressed his dissatisfaction that
Mr. McGougan had not gone into the
rate question. It was decided that
the council should interview the
company officials on Wednesday ln
Mr. McGougan asserted in his letter tbat the farmers' system was
cheaply built and poorly maintained, and $1500 was a very good price
for it.
Tax Rate Fixed.
The council passed to the third
reading the real property tax bylaw,
by which the 1914 rate is fixed at
14 mills. The Steveston local maintenance bylaw and the Richmond
highway bylaw were given third

heavy and building of new lines is
going on steadily.

* A.VOOrVER, July 8.���The Hindus aboard the Komagata Maru, following the appeal court's decision in
the test case, have apparently realized, the hopelessness of their attempt
to thrust themselves on llritish Co-
taimbia, and through iheir executive
committee have formally instructed
iheir counsel to waive further examination   hy  the board  of enquiry.
Mr. Bird, yesterday afternoon tele-
gralied to the Dominion government
In his clients' behalf asking the government to allow the steamer to
come alongside a dock to discharge
the part cargo of Japanese coal, 4,-
UOO tons, which she lias aboard, and
to load outward cargo for the Orient.
The local Hindus, to whom her charter was turned over, have secured
considerable outward cargo for the
vessel here.
The cost of lightering her coal and
the expense of loading cargo from
scows in mid-stream will eat up the
profits, and Mr. Bird informed the
Ottawa authorities ln his telegram
that the local Hindus would deposit
a large sum with the government as
surety that the Komagata's passengers would remain on board the vessel while she was docked. In addition to this bail it is understood that
they are willing to pay the cost of
a guard large enough to make it certain that none of the Hindus would
A message received from Ottawa
asserts that the Court of Appeal having upheld the validity of the Or-
ders-in-Council, the immigration department proposes that the Hindus
affected shall now be deported without further ado. Instructions to
this effeet have already been sent
to the immigration offieers at Vancouver in the event of a judgment
favorable to he government's contention. The despatch states: "It
will be for the local officers of the
department and the owners of the
Komagata Maru to see that the orders are carried out. ln the event
of trouble it may be necessary to deport the Hindus in batches by different ships, but that is a matter to
bo arranged by those on the ground.
"So far as the department is concerned its position is that all classes
of labor should be kept out of British Columbia for a stated period. The
constitutionality of this order being
vindicated by the courts, there
Is nothing to do but to send hack
home those who have come over in
deliberate violation of it.
"Much satisfaction is expressed in
official circles over the outcome of
the proceedings and the unanimous
finding of the Appellate Court as to
their regularity. It is recognized
however, that the question is not to
be settled by the disposition of this
It is understood that an appeai
will go forward to the government of
Canada for very substantial financial assistance towards the Hindus'
return. It is stated that the Hindus
now resident in British Columbia
are at tli" end of their financial resources and that the passengers of
the Komagata Maru are in a destitute condition, A grant of $20,0(11)
is therefore likely to be sought if it
has nol already been appliod for.
The Hindus also desired to make it
very clear yesterday that they came
hero not expecting to break the laws
of the country but with the written

(From The British Columbian.)
Two men were arrested while finishing their supper in a Vancouver
cafe with  champagne    within    two
hours  after  their   auto   struck  and
killed a  woman on Riverway;  that
one of the men was very drunk, the
other  seemed  dazed  and  Impressed
the  arresting  officers  that he  had
been  drinking though  sober at  the
time of arrest;  that neither was In
condition  to aid  the  man and  woman  they had  run  down,    one    of
them being very drunk,    and    that
they were left In a tangled heap In
jthe   roadway   when   the  auto   bear-
ling Mr. and Mrs. Oliver Lewis left
:tho  scene  of   the  accident   for  the
hospital, were the main  features of
tlie evidence offered at the Inquest
i last   nlg.it   Into   the   death   of   Mrs.
Nellie   Lewis,   who   died   within   an
hour after being struck by an autrf
i on  Riverway last Monday night.    E.
: B, Hllstrom and N. F. Wilson were
the men  arrested, and  they appeared at the Inquest last  night.    They
lare charged  with  manslaughter and
are under $10,000 bonds each to ap-

Sny Auto Struck Calf.
The   inquiry   was   marked   by   the
|effort of the solicitor for Hllstrom
and  Wilson  to show that Hilstrom,
the driver of the car, was sober, and
only   Wilson,   the     passenger,     was
idrunk;   that the car was not being
j driven at a high rate of speed; that
the accident was caused by the ma-
chine swerving to miss a calf in the
' -1 ad   aud  an  auto  standing  beside
Ithe  highway  further  along;   that a
second calf was struck, which threw
,the auto to  the sidewalk, and  that
llie calf  was the real  cause of the
tragedy.     Mr. J. F. Baird the solicitor, wa.s called down by Coroner McQuarrie for suggesting answers, ans-
������ i-ring   for  the  witnesses,   securing
|opinions nnd drawing conclusions un-
' *  the guise ���"' cote-examination.
Mr.  W. O.  McQuarrie appeared for

Mr. GaakeU'i Story.
"My Cod, he's killed them," I ex-
|claimed.     "Tlie man    and    woman
j. imply disappeared," tpstif 1f*-<1 Mr. M.
J   Gaskell, head of the firm of M. J.
! Gaskell & Co., of this city and Vancouver,   and  nn  eyewitness  of    the
.tragedy.      Nervously,   and   under   a
great   strain,   Mr.   Gaskell   told   his
story quietly and convincingly.    The
auto driven by Hilstrom came around
the curve below Btrathearn avenue
on  Riverway nt a terrllic    rate    of
speed,      It  swerved  and  the  brakes
were   applied   while  It   was  still   75
'feet from the auto in which Mr. Oas-
'������*!! wns sitting.    The application of
the brakes threw the rear of the machine  Into  the air and    slewed    It
.1 round.     It came nn down the road
lumping and bobbing in the air at
ftn angle. Mr. Gaskell thought It was
woiug lo ?'rike his car and that, they
'would all be killed      He threw himself  back  and  partly  around.    The
j oncoming auto did not strike his ma-
I chine,  hut  Instead  threw  over It a
shower  of   grave]   and   small   stones
I torn   up   from  the road.      The  car
j passed  at  a rate of 86  miles or 40
miles an hour.     Just after lt passed,
j it   dashed   Into  the  sidewalk.      Mr.
and  Mrs.  Lewis    who  w-ere walking
down the pavement, "simply disappeared."
Auto Was Beyond Control.
The wildly driven auto struck the
bank across the sidewalk, turned
and ran up the walk some distance,
finally coming back to the road and
stopping 200 feet away. The auto
was not under control.
Mr. Gaskell then described the efforts of himself, his chauffeur and
Miss Johnston, a trained nurse, to
aid the Injured man and woman. He
sent the driver to get the number of
the car that had struck the people
down. When be found Mrs. Lewis
he thought she was dying. Mr.
Lewis was nowhere to be seen, but
later appeared from on top of the
bank aJbove the road like an apparition, with blood streaming down his
face from  a cut In the  head.     He
I cried: "Where is my wife?     Is she
Gave No Aid.
Mr.  Gaskell described    how they
carried the woman to the car.   They
had been joined by Mr. Phillips, who
i lived   near,  and   who   assisted.     As
j they were placing Mr. Lewis in the
j car the men from the other machine
1 appeared, but did not say anything.
Mr. Gaskell had to ask one of them
three times for his name. This was
Hilstrom. They did not assist. They
were in no condition to do so. Asked
why they could not help, Mr. Gas-
kell said one was very much the
worse for liquor and the other    ap-
' peared stupefied.    As the auto start-
| ed for New Westminster with the Injured people, they were holding on
j to the sides of the car. Mr. Phillips
pushed one of them away and he fell
to the ground. The car left the men
sprawled   In   a   tangled   heap  beside
, the road.
Car Was Coin*? East.
I William John Hall, Mr. Gaskell's
driver, corroborated the testimony
given by his employer. It developed
during lhe cross-examination of
Ihis witness that a calf had been
struck hy Hilstrom's car just after
It passed the Gaskell car, and killed.
The witness was of the opinion that
striking the calf may have made the
car  jump  to  the sidewalk;   that  it
1 would not have done so If tho car
had not been driven so fast. It was
going at leaBt thirty or thirty-five
miles an hour. He did not see the
calf or the people struck. He was
lioking ahead.
Mr. A. J. Phillips testified to hearing the crash and going to the scene
to render assistance.     He said one
I of the men, Wilson, was drunk;
::::.'.rc:r. ho did not sac. but he did
not need to see him.    The smell was
j enough; It was the fumes of whiskey he smelted.
Arrested in Cnfe.
Chief Parkinson, of Burnaby, testified to receiving the information of
the tragedy, and tracing the automobile to an Abbott street gnrage In
Vancouver.   There was blood on the
'tire.    He later arrested the men In
la cafe. They had finished supper
and were drinking. Wilson was very
drunk. Under cross examination the
chief said Hllstrom did not appear
intoxicated at that time, but impressed him as having been drinking; he seemed dazed. The witness
did not see him drink, though a
srlass of wine was In front nf him nn
the table; later Wilson ordered
drinks, but Hilstrom refused to
Mr. Baird did not allow Wilson or
Hilstrom to testify.
The jury added a rider to Its verdict, saying it found the woman
came to her death because of reckless and careless driving, but did not
name the parties responsible.
