Premises Completed in a
Few Days.
Under the able management of Mr.
Tennant, the Delta Trading Company
will open their new store for business
ln 'Delta street, probably next week.
Rome delay has taken place owing to
the non-delivery of the plate glass for
the new front windows, but lt is expected that this will be in hand ln
a day or two. The Internal arrangement of the new store is advisable,
and every arrangement has been made
for handling the large business that

centre of the large new addition to
the store a cosy ice cream parlor has
been arranged which will doubtless
become a popular resort. Above the
parlor, Mr. Tennant has had his private office fixed, which will enable
him to keep a constant eye on the
requirements of his customers. His
personal popularity and his thorough
knowledge of business should secure
extensive patronage. Huslness ln Ladner ls going to be exceptionally good
from now onwards, and the town's
many excellent stores w<ll undoubtedly
reap the harvest they so thoroughly

There is a photograph in Mr. Martin Monk's store on Front street, which
is exciting considerable attention locally. It represents a huge sturgeon
caught in the Fraser River on Good
Friday by Jim Burgess, a fisherman,
and bought by Mr. Monk. The fish
weighed 905 pounds, and was thirteen and a half feet long. The head
alone weighed 1 SS pounds. While
there are stories of sturgeon weighing more than this tish, this Is the
largest of which there i.s any authentic record. It was caught elose to

The appointment of delegates to
the convention of agriculturists called
by the local Board of Trade, to discuss the excessive import of larm
produce into this district, is proceeding very slowly, owing to the large
number of boards of trade and other
organizations that have been asked to
send representatives, ahd the length
of time that will elapse before some
of these bodies meet. Secretary Wade
had desired to set the date of this
convention for May 10, the day en
which moving pictures of the city will
be shown at the Opera li use, but
R now appears as if there will not
he time to make al! arrangements
before  then.
In the meantime, Mr. E. C. Travis,

than those submitted at the last meeting of the Board 0t Trade, and which,
il i.s stated, will slew- tile condition

a subject which they understand, will
result in a remedy or remedies being

proper storage, adequate transportation facilities, placing the fruit on the
market ln its season and when lt ls
commanding a good price. While
there are no hard and fast rules governing the picking of apples, the successful orchuidist strives to harvest his
fruit when It lias reached its full size
and has developed, in the case of colored varieties, a normal, or, if possible,
u maximum, amount of color. Apples
should not hang until they hnve begun
to ripen if a long keeping fruit is desired.
The ability so to grade and to pack
apples that when they are offered for
sale tbey present an attractive appearance because of uniformity and minimum amount of injury from transportation is a valuable asset to the or-
chardist. This one item determines
largely the success or failure of the
grower to realize the best market price
for his product. In order to present
this attractive appearance the apples
must be of a nearly uniform size and
color and present few surface defacements. In packing either a barrel or
box the package should be carefully
fnced with fruit which should as nearly ns possible represent Its overage
contents. Facers, however, may be
somewhat higher colored than the average without seriously misrepresenting
the contents of the package. Barrel
packages are either single or double
fnced, usually tbe latter. In facing a
package the stem end ls placed downward. By judicious selection of facers
the packer con usually manage to
have a well filled layer. Lurge inter
sfiees or Irregular arrangement of the
irult In lhe facer rows detracts materially from the finished appearance of
the package. Likewise high colored
fuill should not be mixed with medium vr low colored fruit In the facer
row. Uniformity In size, arrangement,
color and freedom from blemishes are
four points to be kept In mind. <-
The observance of these details
alone does uot. however, Insure an attractive package when opened. Another necessary precaution is thnt the
pucknge shall be sufficiently well filled
so that when headed It will be just
firm enough to hold the fruit lu place
and uot so tight as to bruise a considerable proportion of It. A clenn.
bright barrel should be used. In which
a plain or corrugated paper cap
should be placed to lessen the bruising
antl add to thc attractiveness of the
package. The bottom being faced, the
barrel slmtild be half filled with fruit
poured In carefully by lowering the
basket well Into the barrel and given
a thorough shaking to settle tbe apples Into place. This operation should
lie repeated when the barrel ls nearly
full. It ls then filled a trifle above
the chines, the top layer being arranged as uniformly as possible. The
coL.eutS of the barrel are then pressed Into place with a well padded head
specially prepared for this purpose.
When this false head ls removed a
plain or preferably corrugated paper
lap ls added and the top cover pressed Into place with a screw or lever
barrel header and nnlled firmly Into
nlace. Tough twigs may be used for
When barrels are filled too full the

Mr. Stuart Henderson, Former M. L.
A., is Charged With Embezzlement by Farmer.
VANCOUVER, B. C, April 18���
Mr. Stuart Henderson, K. C., lately
Liberal candidate in Lillooet, and for-
, nierly member for Yale in the local
j legislature, was arrested here yester-
! day afternoon on a charge of embez-
' zlement. He was afterwards released
{on $3000 bail, $1500 in himself and
j $1500 divided between two sureties of
i $750 each. He will return to Ash-
I croft, where the Information wus
i laid, this afternoon.
' The allegation against Mr. Hendor-
'son is that in July, 1910, an elderly
I Norwegian farmer named Hans Gjill-
stad, living at Ashcroft, gave him, as
j his solicitor, $1112 to pay off a
! mortgage on 160 acres of land In Al-
.berta. Mr. Gjillstad in his lnfonna-
titon alleges that Mr. Henderson told
j him he had paid off the mortgage
��� and had the papers in safe keeping.
'This spring Mr. Gjillstad wanted to
! rent his land, but the prospective
tenants objected to taking it with a
| mortgage on it. Mr. Gjillstad then
made inquiries, and says he found
| that the $11111 had not been paid. He
! further alleges that he has a letter
' from Mr. Henderson stating that the
mortgage had been paid, and that he
has also the paid cheque which Mr.
i Henderson cashed.
Mr. Henderson states that the -ac-
ICUsatlon is entirely false, and that he
i will have no difficulty In disproving
it when the matter comes up for trial.
He adds that the absurdity of thc
charge is apparent in face of the fact
that during the past year or two he
has been very successful In a financial way, and it was hardly likely that
a man with his knowledge of law and
consequences would so neglect his
business as to allow such a charge to
be brought against him. He declares
that the charge is the outcome of
eplte and that he has not the least
fear In facing it.
Tiie original warrant against Mr.
Henderson was issued at Ashcroft,
but was executed here shortly aft'r
one o'clock when he had returned
from Victoria. The warrant was
served by Provincial Constable North
on  Mr.   Henderson at his hotel.
Later in the afternoon he secured
| the professional services of Mr. C. W.
Craig, and appeared before Magistrate Alexander and was released on
the above' mentioned bail. As the
warrant was issued in Ashcroft he
will return there with a provincial
constable today to stand his trial.
Mr. A. S. Goodove, M.P., has promised his advocacy and support for the

as too lenient punishment, especially
in regard to blind pigs and disorderly   houses,     So   far   the     magistrate
maintains  a   dignified  silence.

less Describing Conditions Under
Which Titanic Went Down
NKW YORK, April 16���The following wireless, received from the liner
Carpathia was issued today from the
officers of the Cunard line here:
"7.55 a.m. (New York time), hit.
41.45 north, long 50.20 west. I am
proceeding to New York unless otherwise ordered with about 800 aboard.
After having consulted Mr. Ismay and
considering the circumstances with
so much ice about, 1 consider going
to New York the best. There are a
large number of Icebergs and the sea
lor 20 miles is filled with ice, with
bergs among it.���Rostron, commanding Carpathia."
This message came via Cape Race.
Another wireless, evidently filed
earlier, reads:
"7.20 a.m. April 16. The Titanic
struck an Iceberg and sank Monday
at 3 a.m. ln lat. 41.46 north, long.
50.14  west."
A Late Dispatch.
NEW YORK, April 16���The New
York news bureau reports a wireless
message to Cape Race relayed from
the scene of tho wreck says:
"All except 1237 of the passengers
aboard lhe Titanic had been accounted  for."
If the report is true lt Indicates
���'-at 155 persons In addition to the
S6G reported aboard the Carpathia
have been rescued. The report has
not  been confirmed.
Storm on Now.
MONTREAL, April 16���All hope
that any of the survivors of the
Titanic who were still adrift in rafts
and boats last night have been saved
vanished today when a report reached here from the weather signal station on the Gulf of St. Lawrence
that a heavy fog lay off the coast of
Nova Scotia, and that a heavy thunderstorm broke in that vicinity last
night and is travelling eastward.
One Explanation.
ANN AROR, Mich., April 16���
Captain lnman Sealby, who was In I
command of the liner Republic when
it sank off the Massachusetts coast
and who is now a law student at the
University of Michigan here, said today that Icebergs are the most dangerous factors with which Uuers have
to contend.
Captain Sealby declared his belief
that the Titanic struck the berg
glancingly and then scraped alongside, breaking most of her bulkheids.

of those aboard the vessel had waited
for the dreadeii news. All other topics
were dwarfed Parliament discussed
Home Rule, but that question for the
moment had no Interest for a public
face to face with such a disaster.
Much satisfaction is expressed over
the large number of women ar.d children among the survivors, as showing
Lhat the best traditions of the sea have
been upheld. There is no disposition,
pending fuller details, to attribute
blame in any quarter, but every possible phase and theory likely to throw
a light, or give guidance for the future
is being discussed, especially the ques-
tiontion as to the number.of boats and
life-saving appliances carried aboard
the big liners.
In this respect the calamity has
brought to the public a revelation of
unsuspected dangers in ocean travel,
and probably will lead to the strictest
investigation  and  remedial  measures.
In response to a telegram of Inquiry as to the number of boats carried by the Titanic, and how many
persans they would accommodate, the
White Star Company at Liverpool
sends the following message:
