Associated Boards of Trade Proposal
Does Not Appeal to Members
���Seek Dredge Services.
Tbe regular meeting of the Delta
Board of Trade was held on Monday
night, the 11th instant. Mr. W. A.
Kirkland was in the chair, and the
attendance numbered twenty. Mr.
James Grisdale, manager of the
Ki>yal Bank, was elected a new member.
A communication was received
from Mr. C. H. Stuart-Wade ln reference to the formation of associated
Boards of Trade of the Western
Mainland of British Columbia. The
Delta  board  resolved  that  the  ar-

Valuable Circular Should   Be   Used
by Every Delta Farmer���Different Affections Illustrated.
The Department of Agriculture at
Ottawa has been distributing the
past two weeks an Illustrated colored
folder, dealing with potatoe diseases,
which should be In the hands of
every potato grower ln Delta. Prepared by H. T. Gussow, Dominion
Botanist, and A. E. Kellett, it shows
In natural colors, potatoes, whole or
cut, afflicted with the diseases or
conditions known as "hollow potato," "Internal brown streak," "little
potato," "common scab," "powdery
scab," "potato canker," "wet rot,"
'stem end rot," "dry rot," and "late
rangements at present  in  existence

time the board expressed their will- ] treatment and in seed selection lies
ingness to heartily co-operate with j the only effective method of com-
auy or all other boards of trade in ^^^
securing any mutual benefit as the
occasion may arise.
A further communication through
Mr. rituart-Wade, enclosing a petition from the up-river fishermen,
was dealt  with  by  the  board,  and I
it was resolved that the board endorse the petition of tbe fishermen
which is being forwarded to Mr. J.
D. Taylor.
Mr. D. B. Grant reported re the
request of the board that a dredge
be sent down to remove the sand
bars at or near Ladner. He stated
thnt Mr. Worsfold, of New Westminster, was very non-committal, and
would promise no more than that
he would forward to Ottawa any letters addressed to him in connection!
v i;h the securing of the dredge.
The following resolution was then'
unanimously adopted by the board,
that a night lettergram be sent to
tl federal member, Mr. J, D. Tay-
lor, Ottawa, urging immediate ac-
t   n with the dredge.
Mr. E. L. Berry brought up the
question of fruit tree pests, and .particularly the tent caterpillar, and
suggested that the board get in touch
-villi the Fruit Inspector and try
and have the law enforced. The
secretary was instructed to write to
Inspector Cunningham in regard to
this matter.     - '
An interesting discussion took
place as the result of a communication from the W. C. T. U. re the
securing of a recreation and reading
room. .Mr. Berry reported having
taken part in an interview with the
ladies of the W. C. T. U. and spoke
very highly of the unselfish, reasonable and practical way in which they
were undertaking this question.
T ey had already secured the proni-
1 of the assistance of the Local
Amateur Theatrical Company and
; o that of Mrs. Cave-Browne-Cave,
' io have voluntarily offered their
services for the raising of funds to
���   fray  expenses.    The    board    were
batting these diseases. Delta,' the
greatest potato growing district in
British Columbia, is practically disease free at present, which means
that ranchers today hold in their
power the destiny of the district.
The use of seed characterized by
"hollow potato," "internal brown
streak," "common scab," or "little
potato," is not advisable, declares
the Dominion Botanist. Poor, unsound seed potatoes, he says, give
a poor yield, small in quantity and
of inferior quality. They do not, if
they sell at all, bring the highest
market  price.    If through necessity
AU in Readiness for Opening of Lacrosse Season   Friday Night
���Lineup of Teams.
Tommy Gifford, of New Westminster, will referee the opening fixture in the Lower Fraser Valley Lacrosse League, between the arch-
rivals, Beavers and Westham Island.
The match- will begin promptly at
6.30 p.m., Friday, May 15. A great
deal of Interest is taken in the contest. Ladnerites, needless to say,
will turn out en masse, and a big
delegation from Westham Island will
be on band. It is also reported that
the Richmond Lacrosse Club will be
present in a body.
"We are ready for the battle, and
we have every confidence in the
world," was the ftatemeni issued to
the Delta Times by Capt. Bob Kittson, of the Beavers.
The lineup will probably be as

Here is the argument advanced by-
many merchants     in    the    smaller

should be soaked for three hours
in a 1:2000 solution of bichloride of
mercury or in 1 lb. formalin in 30
imperial gallons of water. The latter is the more readily available in
Potatoes affected with the other
���'leases mentioned are utterly unfit
for seed purposes, and no seed treatment should  be attempted.
Two potato diseases, powdery
scab and potato canker, the folder
particularly warns the rancher
against. The farmer who discovers
these diseases in his field and fails
to report them renders himself liable to criminal proceedings if the
negligence is discovered. Both of
these diseases, known porbably to
no local ranchers by personal knowledge, were of especial interest to
them the past season, because the
first, resulting an embargo by the
United States, lowered the spud market in Eastern Canada, and the second, causing a Canadian embargo
on Californian potatoes, reacted last
March to the distinct advantage of
pay and we just advertise to keep
up the local paper." .
The very fact that the local paper
should be kept up is an indication
that the merchant at least knows
that the paper is an actual benefit
to the town. A town without a local paper certaifily lacks Eome thing,
and a town with a good local paper
certainly has an asset which the
town should be proud of and which
the local merchants could and should
use to advantage.
Most any merchant who has a
sense of pride in the town in which
be lives and in which he conducts
his business would be willing to pay
to the local paper as much as five
dollars a month just as a matter of
support, even is he carried no ad at
all, '*��� But the trouble is that the average merchant looks on this newspaper space as a donation and simply means "any old thing" for an
ad. and changes his copy when he
happens to think of it.
The trouble lies here; the merchant neglects the advertising end
of the business entirely.    Then, aft-

Native  Sons  Set May 25  for Date
���General  Public   Invited
���Sports Arranged,   i
The local post of Native Sons,
only organized a short time ago, but
yet a very live organization, is making preparations for a monster picnic, to be held at Boundary Bay,
Monday, May 2r>. The event was
decided on at a meeting last Thursday night, presided over by Chief
Factor Chris Brown and attended by
Messrs. J. J. Johnson, Percy Bole,
Cassady, Leamy, and other members
of Post No. 4, New Westminster.
The Boundary Bay picnic will be attended by a big delegation from New
Westminster, and baseball and lacrosse matches between the New
Westminster and Delta posts will be
played. Challenges were issued and
accepted for these at last Thursday's
A big day all round is anticipated.
The general public is extended a
warm invitation to be present. Besides the baseball and lacrosse games
cither sports will undoubtedly be
held, the details of which will be
worked out at a meeting of the post
to be held next week. Grauer's
Beach will be the venue of the picnic.
The Native Sons will be remembered for the very, successful dance
they held last month, and that the
picnic of May 25 is under their direction ensures the favorable outcome.
The meeting last Thursday evening was an enthusiastic one, its success being increased by the presence
of the New Westminster guests.
Experimental Protection to Dyke to
Be Made���Bonds to Be
The dyke question received very
careful consideration at the regular
meeting of the Delta council on Saturday, 9th inst., and after much discussion it was decided to give a trial
to the plans produced by Mr. Harris,
whereby breakwaters are to bo built
some forty or fifty feet from the
dyke. Mr. Harris, who has a considerable knowledge of this work,
explained In detail the benefits that
would be derived from this system,
and as an experiment two jetties are
to be built. If these prove successful the remainder of the dyke is to
be protected in a like manner.
Information being at hand as regards the oiling of the roads, it was
decided to purchase one tank of oil
at a cost of $300, and sprinkle thb��

pality.    The New Westminster cour

tax sale. It was also decided to
renew thc sidewalks of the town,
plans for the building of one from
Port Guichon  being discussed.

(From The British Columbian.)
With the repudiation a week ago
of their contract with the Mainland
Milk Shippers' Union by the milk
wholesalers of Vancouver, covering
mi'lk shipments for the summer
months, the Shippers' Union yesiei-
day, with an attendance of 100 members, representing 80 per cent of
the milk production of the Mainland of British Columbia, decided to
have nothing more to do with the
wholesalers and to proceed to establish their own distributing facilities
and to bridge the gap between the
producer and consumer and sell direct to tlie individual in the cities of
the coast.
Already Incorporated.
The first action oy the. union at
its meeting yesterday was to pass a
resolution severing all relations with
the Wholesalers' Association. Next,
after but little discussion, a resolution was passed directing the provisional board of directors of the
Fraser Valley Farmers' Milk Company, already Incorporated under the
Agricultural Societies Act, to proceed with the organization, and to
place tho company In a position to
begin the distribution of milk to the
consumers of New Westminster,
Vancouver and North Vancouver as
soon as possible.
Will Cut Price.
The provisional directorate will
organize their efforts at once, secure
the necessary subscriptions to stock,
raise the necessary capital, which lt
is expected can be secured from
among its members and possibly
with the assistance of the Provincial
government, provision having been
made in the act for assistance secured by the stock of the concern.
Experienced managers will be secured, and arrangements made for
opening the necessary depots in the
three cities, the assembly of sufficient plant to handle the business,
with a view of cutting squarely ln
two the difference in price now paid
by the consumer and the price received by the producer, an increase
for the latter to a price that will
pay for production, and a reduction
for the latter to a price that will
enable the city consumers to buy
The provisional directors are
Messrs. Berry, Langley; Oliver, Colebrook; Barrow and Eckert, Chilliwack, and Parks of Pitt Meadows.
On CO-operative Basis.
The union anticipates that the
company, which will be carried on
on a co-cperative basis, will be in
shape to invade the field of the
wholesalers next autumn, and that
by next spring when the production
is biggest, they will have their distributing facilities so complete that
they will be in a position to handle
their whole output, which at that
time will be sufficiently large to
supply the demand in the three
cities. Arrangements will be made
for processing all milk produced by
the members of tho uni,mi not required for distribution.
lt is expected that there will be
some severe competition with the
wholesalers and distributors, but
these will have to depend upon imported milk from Washington, and
which cannot be laid down here at a
price that will enable them to compete with the local product handled
by the union.
Significant Coincidence.
It was iiointert out yesterday that
It was slcnificant that the repudiation of the contract and the cut in
p-:io paid the shippers, on May 1,
was coincident with a similar reduction in the price of milk by the condensers of Northwest Washington to
a price which would let the wholesalers import their milk and sell it
on even terms with that produced

Valley, president of the Milk Shippers' Union, presided, and the meeting was attended by all the executive of the union and by prominent
dairymen from Hop..- to I.adner, to

Advertising compels the advertiser to bestir

he wants your favor and custom, you can be
pretty sure that he is doing his best to deserve

Flev-en Municipalities Have Promised
to Co-operate ln Association's
Amended Alma.
(From The British Columbian.)
At a meeting held ln local Board
of Trade rooms yesterday, the reorganization committee of the Fraser
Valley Development 'League unanimously decided to recommend to the
various municipal councils and
Boards of Trade of the Valley that
the League be continued on the lines
of the amended constitution, which
provides that the scope of the organization be extended to the more
practical work of promoting the cooperative marketing of the farm
produce of the Valley.
The committee after a canvass of
the situation finds that there has
been sufficient support promised
ifrom the various bodies concerned to
justify the league being conducted
on practical lines, some eleven municipalities having declared that they
wore willing to co-operate if the organization was supported to a successful undertaking of the work proposed. . i
That the former supporting member of lhe association may be made
acquainted with these recommendations and of the value of carrying on
the work of the league, a circular
letter will be sent to each public
body Interested and notification will
be contained therein that a meeting
of the league will be held at the New
Westminster Board of Trade rooms
on Friday, May 29, at 1:30 p.m., for
tbe election of permanent officers,
and recommending that two delegates be sent from each body Interested. The fee for municipalities,
the committee recommends, should
be not less than .$10, and for Boards
of Trade and other organizations
where Boards of Trade do not exist
should be not less than $5.
Mr. G. O. Buchanan, of tbe Maple
Ridge  Board     of  Trade,     presided.

! co-operative     marketing    addressed
the committee.  Including Mr. H. O.
j Lamb,   manager   of   the  Aldergrove
i Co-operative store, who pointed out
the  need   for     Increased   marketing
facilities owing to the greater agiri-
. cultural  development of the valley,
and  the  difficulties  that  faced  cooperative  associations  In   marketing
the produce of the farmers.      Councillor Whiting, of Coquitlam:  Councillor Murphy, of Surrey, and Reeve
'Fraspr, of Burnaby, were also present,  the latter promising that Burnaby would line up with all the other
municipalities  ln  whatever  was  for
the zood of the valley.     His council,  he said,  was tired  of spasmodic

In the market building business
was brisk, both in wholesale lots and
at retail a plentiful supply being on

merchants of New Westminster, with
a portion of the proceeds from products brought to the city lu the

that every day was market day. His

The farmer himself had stopped to

time he arrived at the stand where
the family conveyance stood, his wife
had hitched the good old horse to

Warnock, Geurton, Wilson and Van
Houten, from Vancouver, representing a large number of Port Mann
property owners, west cf the town-
site along the section line between
sections 8 and 9 and south of the
Pacific Highway, requested a road
a mile in length in that section.
The deputation presented a petition signed "by over a score of property owners, and Mr. Warnock, who
acted as spokesmun. offered on behalf of the people interested, to pay
$1,000 towards the cost of construction, in addition also, he stated they
would supply all the gravel from a
pit on the property. The council,
after considerable discussion, decided to consider the matter at the
next meeting after a report had been
submitted by the municipal engineer,
the latter being instructed to look
into the matter in the meantime.
Among the various communications received yesterday was a letter

In referring to New Westminster,
his home town, Premier McBride in
an interview to The British Columbian today, said: "I am pleased to
see how the city is holding its own.
There can be no question of the future, situated as New Westminster is
in reference to the Farser valley district. With her splendid railroad
facilities and excellent fresh water
harborage, a splendid destiny is assured.
"I have noticed casually," continued the premier, "that some sort
of dispute has arisen between Vancouver and this city in -onnection
with tbe proposed grain elevator.
This I am satisfied, however, is of
but a passing nature. The beet of
neighbors sometimes fall out, but in
the end the relationship Is greatly
"The interests of the whole community are almost identical and I

Mr. F. H. Cunningham, chief inspector of Dominion Fisheries, announces that bounty will be paid
during the current year on another
1000 hair seals. The iirst thousand seals, on which a bounty of
$3.50 per head came into force at
tbe beginning of the year, have already been killed and paid for and
the same price has now been placed
on the head or rather tail, of each
of another thousand.
Mr. Cunningham stated that this
increase in bounty was decided ou as
the result of the deliberations of the
Fisheries Advisory Board, from attending which he has returned. Mr.
Cunningham and Mr. D. N. Mclntyre, of the provincial fisheries, constitute the Pacific section of the
Many Seals in River.
Of the thosand seals on which
bounty has been paid, only a dozen
were shot in the Fraser river, although the Department's patrolmen
have reported seals in the river between Steveston and the Sandheads
in considerable numbers. While some
were reported in February, they became much more plentiful later,
twenty being sighted on March 4,
vhile fifty-five were counted on
March 10 and a hundred on April
19. Few river fishermen seem to
have made any effort to get the seals,'
though their tails are worth $3.50
each. Chief Inspector Cunning-ham

accepted the appointment as superintendent ot the loggers' mission.
Considerable discussion arose ln
the assembly when tbe committee appointed to consider the proposal to
divide the Presbytery submitted
their report. In fact for a time,
things waxed pretty warm. The
Vancouver delegation were unwilling to sacrifice the Fraser Valley district while the people in that section
considered that too much time had
been consumed in tbe discussion.
Many present thought that the presbytery should be divided so that the
rural districts and the city districts
sbould be separate. This brought
strong protest from Chilliwack and
Mission. When the suggestion was
made that Westminster district and
Vancouver should be one, the up-
valley delegates protested on the
grounds that the people of the val
