,.,,,,,,.,-���ltlif_:lit Is Only Common Disease In Delta.
One larmer, at least, is dipping his

JometUing of an innovation in Del- .
ta    Grain seed has been dipped by j
progressive farmers    for years, but j
almost, as much could be said of the j
necessity for dipping potato    seed, i
Potatoes ure one of  Delta's    prin- I

,j free Horn disease as possible, Is
5lire to react sooner or later on the
market value of Delta-grown spuds.
���'Blight is the only disease 1 find

said a large and careful    buyer to
The Tini's recently.      "Occasionally :
[there   is common    scab    caused by

I'g'ivo too much    attention    to their j
seed.   Let them dip it all and Delta's
reputation will grow by bounds frbni
year to year."
Delta spuds are    not    altogether I
marketed yet.   One buyer picked up
a hundred tons this    week.      The :
potato market Is harder to beat than !
tie stock marketr    as    many local
ranchers  will   testify.    Some  farmers sell because they need the cash. |
Others held for high prices and unload when the market first begins to
drop.    Still   others    have a selling
plai< which they follow    year after
| year. It will be generally admitted
that in the sale of the spuds usually
very little science goes, unless lt is
tarnished by the buyer.
.hia is tlie selling method followed by one farmer.      Every   year he
| hold- bis crop around until the first
neck in June. He asserts that in a
periotl covering many years he has
lost out only twice on fills scheme.
On one occasion he picked up $50 a '
ton [or his tubers. At present lie '
has one hundred tons in pits, and a
month from now he expects to get
135 a ton for them. It ls one farmer

ranchers held till June the result
can be imagined.
Ashcroft potatoes held for high
prices in the late winter months
were caught by the falling market
ami large consignments were sacrificed,
Fifteen dollars a ton is now being paid for local spuds. The market is very unsteady, however, and
higher, or even  lower, prices, may

Factory of the B. C. .Milk Condensing
Company Started on Monday-
Much Milk Required.
The B. C. Milk Condensing Company's new factory at Ladner started operation on Monday, enough
milk being received to satisfactorily
test out '.he machines. Since then
tho plant has been running up to
expectations, the evaporating plant
having been' started on Tuesday.
Several thousand pounds of the finished product of the plant will result
from these initial operations. When
the plant Is running to full capacity,
50,000 pounds of milk will be required each day. A near market being thus provided for the rich pro-
duet of the dairy farms of Delta municipality. The price to be paid Is
yet to be announced. Messrs. Alexander and Wylio have taken the contract for collecting the milk throughout the district.
The factory will give employment
to some ten or twelve girls and boys,
in addition to the expert adult operators.
The samples of milk already obtained from the farmers are of a
rich quality and the company anticipate that the product of the factory
will be the superior of any milk
condensing factory on the . Lower
.Mainland. It will be the aim to secure first-class milk and to produce
at all times canned milk and cream
of the highest standard.

looming up as a possibility is a
three-cornered school lacrosse league
with Ladner, Westham Island aud
Bridgeport as members. The idea
had previously suggested itself to
some of the sport enthusiasts of the
Delta, but the first to act were the
young stickhandlers of Bridgeport.
They have organized a team, purchased sweaters and equipment,
and have played several practice
games. At. a recent meeting they
voted to open negotiations to form
a school league with Ladner and
Several x>l the Ladner boys, to
whom the subject was broached, received It very favorably, and It is
thought the public school authorities would endorse it. The .Bridgeport team, while taking it's name
from the locality on Lulu Island
near Eburne, is yet representative
of the whole of Richmond municipality, because Bridgeport draws its
students from Steveston, Lulu, Sea
Island and the other districts.
Inasmuch as Richmond bas a team
in the Lower Fraser Valley League,
the schedule of the school league
might very well be worked out along
the lines of the older association.

President    Wilson Orders    Disarmament of All Civilians in Col.
oi-ado Strike Districts.
WASHINGTON,    May    2.���President Wilson today ordered complete
disarmament of all   civilians In the
Colorado strike district.    The order
was made    through    Garrison, who
issued a proclamation    couched    in
Imperative  military language,  summoning every one ln the strike zone
who possesses arms   or ammunition
to surrender them    to    the federal
troops.      Receipts are promised for
arms and ammunition   surrendered.
This promise  is the    only    pledge
that they will ever be returned.    It
is stated a time limit    will    be set
within which the order must be complied with. _     .......
Colorado was divided when the.
federal troops were ordered there
Into four military zones���those of
Canyon City, Trinidad, Louisville
and Ludlow. As more troops arrive
it is expected the zones will be subdivided. Secretary of War Garrison-
Is ln personal charge of the situation. No single military commander
will have charge of all troops ln the
mine fields. The secretary submitted to the president reports from
Major Holbrook, now ln the strike
zone. Ho said the disarmament order Is not intended to affect the material interests of either the mine
owners or miners, and It will be applied impartially to both. Two more
troops of cavalry from Georgia are
expected In Denver Monday More
troops were sent on the strength of
representations from Governor Amnions and Major Holbrook that there
was not enough regulars on the spot
to relieve the militia in all parts of
the strike district

Howay School Leads in Folk Dance
���Queensboro is First tor
May Pole Dance.
(From The British Columbian.)
Every school in the city was represented in the Folk and May pole
dances at Queen's Park Friday
and it was only after the hardest
kind of work on the part of the
judges, tbat the prizes were awarded.
Thoroughly drilled by Mr. Harry
Johnston, the pretty children were
lined up for the folk dance on the
green, and accompanied by the city
band, the little tots stepped right
merrily through the intricacies and
mazes of the dance. So close were
the dancers in point of merit that a
second trial was asked before the
award for this event was won by
the Howay school with 26 points-
Herbert Spencer and John Robson
schools with 22 points each tying for
second place. Lord Lister, Lord
Kelvin and Richard McBride schools
each received 19.
Previous to mounting the raised
platform to compete for the May
pole dance honors, the kiddles
danced around the May poles on the
sward in trial efforts and her. the
superiority of the Queensboro scholars was plainly evident, their work
of winding the ribbons singly, doubly, or in fours, being particularly
good, not one mistake being made
throughout and the completion of
their attempt met with unstinted
Children representing Queensboro.
John Robson, Lord Kelvin, Lord
Lister and Richard McBride schools
took part in the competition da.ice
and this time the superiority of
Queensboro was not so marked, the
Lord Kelvin troupe tripping the
dance to such good purpose that
the judges in their final summing
up, declared a dead beat and after
several moments of discussion the
Queensboro pupils received first honors by just one point, the fiaal
count being Queensboro 111, Lord
Kelvin 110.
The May pole dances were watched throughout by an admiring
throng of several thousand and with
each troupe nicely gotten up in ihw
colors of their school, the scene was
a pretty one and well wonh attention from old or young. The judges
for both events were Rev. Canon
d'Easum, Mrs. A. W. Gray and Miss
McGoun, physical director, Vancouver Y. W. C. A.
Some of the teachers present, and
who coached their respective classes-
were F. O. Canfield, W. C. Coatham.

with considerable success as a result
cf Thursday's judging at the Vancouver Horso Show.

the Fashion Stables, of New Westminster, was first in the carriage
horse, stallion class, three years
and over, third place in the same
class being taken by Hei Rialto,
owned by Dr. J. Kerr Wilson, Ladner. First place and Championship
ribbon in tbe class for German coach

Gregor, Fraser Arm, Burnaby, and
driven by Mrs. McGregor, was

was another spectacular event which
awakened the interest of tbe audience, the fine animals being in excellent condition and showing off their
paces to the best advantage The
Stallions were in charge of Mr. Malcolm Stewart of the Colony Farm,
who has trained all the high-class
anim tis the farm lias.
The first anniversary of the new
Farmers' Institute hall was celebrated on Friday evening last at
Strawberry Hill, when an amateur
play entitled "At the Village P. O."
was put on by entirely local talent.
The people showed their appreciation
of the meritorious work of the

the mosi interesting evening in the
history of the hill. Before the rise

Heaps    Engineering Company   Will
Build   Huntting.Merritt  Co.'s
Pli-nt at Eburne.
EBURNE, Point Grey, April 29.-���
The Huntting-Merritt Lumber Company has let the contract for its
Eburne shingle mill to the Heaps
Engineering Co., of New Westminster, and the structure will be completed as soon as possible, piledrlv-
ing work starting this week. Tbe
mill will be located on the Higgins
property on the North Arm west of
Eburne. Plans, already filed with
the Point Grey building inspector,
show a modern plant. The structure
will cost $15,000, and the entire
plant, equipped, $45,000. A large
incinerator is provided for. The
architect is D. B. Campbell, of Vancouver.
Transportation facilities to serve
this mill and the entire industrial
section vest of Eburne are now being installed. It is stated that several industrial companies have practically decided to locate here, some
going so far as to get out plans.
In a circular letter sent out by the
Provincial Board of Health, it is
stated that rabies has made its appearance amongst tbe dogs of the
Cowichan district. Two suspicious
cases also occurred some months
ago at Mission. Tbe disease has appeared ln Oregon and possibly in
the State of Washington as well.
The Department warns the public
that as the period of incubation ot
rabies is prolonged, the extent of
the infection ls not yet apparent, so
it is incumbent upon all to be on the
lookout for further outbreaks.
The Dominion Veterinary Department is handling this so far as animals are concerned, but Dr. Walter
Bapty, the acting secretary, wishes
to be informed as to any suspicious
cases which may appear.
The department is also prepared
at any time to forward complete
treatment for hydrophobia, which
must be administered to the person
as soon as possible after being bitten, some weeks elapsing before
symptoms develop. This treatment
can be administered by the local
Fraser River Fishermen's Protective
Association Now an Accomplished Fact.
(From The British Columbian.)
Saturday afternoon the organization of the Fraser River Fishermen's
Protective Association was effected
at a meeting ln the Conservative
club rooms in which both up-river
and down-river fishermen were well
represented. W. E. Maiden called
the meeting to order, and was elected president. Daniel McPherson

n_ll secretary, and J. Reichenbach
was made treasurer. The executive

Draft Constitution.
The executive committee will this
week draft a constitution, and it is
intended to make the organization
permanent. The main object of the
organization is the elimination of
Japanese competition on the river,
and every effort will be bent to
this end. It is expected that the
object may be accomplished witb
the co-operation of the two governments, in resticting licenses, the
number to be allowed to each cannery being fixed by a joint board
from the fishermen and canners,
white fishermen to be allowed to
take out licenses before any are issued to Japs.

There will be a meeting of the
executive Thursday night, when reports from the Skeena river showing
how the question has been handled

Government Poultry Instructor Can
not Recommend Richmond as
Ideal Turkey Country.

One of the government poultry instructors, Mr. H. E. Upton, gave an
instructive talk before the Richmond
Poultry Association at its last meeting. Dealing flrst with the different varieties and their qualifications,

was urged. A good spray to eliminate red mites was made of one part
of crude carbolic acid to three parts
ot kerosene. Better than any exploited patent lice powder was a preparation made by pouring on plaster
ot Paris one part of crude carbolic
acid and three parts gasoline, and
pulverizing the hardened mixture.

raising to Richmond," said Mr. Upton.     "The climate is too damp."
