Road .Superintendent Will Arrange
for 10 O'clock Ferry to Be a
Produce Service.
Government Road Superintendent
E. McBride was in Ladner conferring with Secretary Fisher aud other
- uibera of the Delta Board of
Trade as to the weight limit on the
ferry and other service. The repre-
gi iitations of the milk transport men
was taken into account and Mr. McBride announced that the 10 o'clock
trip from Ladner and the 10:30
��� ��� it in Woodwards would be made a
produce service, the milk wagons
Hi us being given preference over the
. "mobile  traffic.
When this regulation goes Into ef-
fect, motorists will be warned that
all other traffic will be set aside for
the milk wagons, the other produce
transports coming second
1_ uoU,hen sufficient accommodation for the autos these must wait
for another trip.
With reference to the weight limit
the limit of the cargo for trucks and
wagons will probably be three to
three and a half    tons,    the    total
Jury Investigating Case Of Jones Boy
Hot in ns Verdict of Death by
"Death by misadventure," or accidental  death,  was the  finding of
the   jury    which    investigated    tbe
death of Earl  D, Jones, the seven-
year-old boy from the Marcum Lumber Company's camp in East Delta,
who died two weeks ago in the Royal
Columbian Hospital as the result of
injuries  received  some time  before.
This   was the   case in which the
father and friends of the dead  boy
maintained    that  the  child   had   received hls injuries from being kick-
Jed by the camp blacksmith, Walker,
land on this claim and the result of
'the post mortem an inquest was ordered:    The case was directed  and
iV'th"��� ilne witnesses marshalled by Constt-
11 mere ibJe Mor-&tli of Delta
The dead child's father was first
called, after the results of the post
mortem had been placed before the
jury. This report showed that the
child died from a general septic condition, or, in effect, from blood poU-

Mr. McBride also investigated the i,1!0" dlBCloaing a pus sack beneath
complaints that the Captain of the , lle Periostium, and an injury to tli-

delayed by the open draw bridge of
the North Arm. It Is understood
that he has asked the captain to do
all that Is possible to accommodate
the public in the case of such delays
in fhe future. *
The government road superintendent noted how things were so shaping as to show the immense value of
the ferry ln the transport of Delta
farm produce to the markets.
Dr. King, of Ladner, who attended the child, testified to his condl-
t ion   when  called, and deposed  that
the   child was   scarcely in a physically   normal   condition.      His system vvas full of germs which were
quick to attack the injured point, infection and death resulting.    An In-
Ijury such as described might not ho-
leome    infected    if    in    a    normally
healthy child.
Evidence of the child being kicked
by the blacksmith was wanting, sev-
Jeral witnesses testifying that the
j man had put out his foot to stop the
| bay from beating the blacksmith's
child with a stick, the child being
j sheltered behind his father.    Walk-

deliberate misrepresentation to insult. For the benefit of the "News"

was in splendid condition at present
and by that route, if No. 5 road was

"I find however, owing to the
condition of No. 5 road," added Mr.
Wade, "that heavy teaming and
motor truck traffic is going by way
of Minoru Park and Eiburne to Vancouver, thus drawing traffic that
might otherwise favor New Westminster to Vancouver. I am surprised at the amount of traffic by

"I have no sympathy with any

in addressing a large assemblage of

had come at the invitation of Mayor
A. W. Gray to discuss the Asiatic
immigration problem from all its
In his opening remarks, the Federal member reminded his hearers
that although conditions with regard
to the Iniinlgratlon laws might be
considerably bettered, they must remember that the laws had been considerably worse. Tbere was a time,
not so very long ago, when the Immigration officials could not have
held up this shipload of Hindus now
lying in Vancouver harbor. He recalled the time when the Asiatics
had been pouring Into the province
at the rate of four and five thousand
per mouth and clie immigration officials had not been allowed to stop
them. These laws had been brought
down prior to the last Dominion
elections and had but recently been
checked by an order-in-council which
excluded any and all immigrants of
the artisan or laboring classes,
skilled or unskilled, and no one was
now allowed to enter unless he had
been in the country before and had
so established residence. Legislation of that sort, he declared, showed that the Federal authorities were
alive tn the defects In the immigration laws und there was no reason
why this order-ln-council should not
be renewed Indefinitely until further
legislation effectively dealing with
the situation could be brought
Right or Appeal.
It would be a hard tiling to tell
the Hindus that they could not appeal to the courts, as they were now-
doing. The possibility of their appeal being successful was a very remote one, He snld, with at least
three good grounds for exclusion;
tbey most have at least $200; they
must hnve come direct, from India,
and as he had previously pointed out
the order-in-council wus still In effect prohibiting any artisan or laborer. Ho bad every confidence In the
courts of British Columbia and felt
issured that, If the case was a good
'lie. the Hindus now on the Komagata Maru would be returned whence
they came.
Although he was well aware that

exclusion of Asiatics would be offensive '..o the people whom It conn-rued he asserted with emphasis
that ail the Ingenuity and courage
of thei Government would be exercised to keep out Orientals. He

so would Increase the responsibility
of the Mother Country while lessening hei power to perform all obligations to Canada. B would mean

���coming to her own as the saying Is.
There Is ample room for b.th organizations.
One thing at a time and lhat done

the past attempt! o! an organisation
'bas been to attempt too many
things. That Which Will appeal t>
tlie produceri Of the Fraser Valley
more than any one thing that we
know of is now and where to successfully innike: the products of the
Valley. In the piiHt, and it ma*.
happen Mils year again, the trouble
has been the growing of products
with no proper or systematic manner of marketing with profit to the
producer. The Ida? of bringing
into the market sof Vancouver any
kind of product that Is to be found
In plenty ln the Fraser Valley, does
not   make  for  tlie   prosperity  of  the
\u l .us communities contiguous  to
Vancouver  nnd   New    Westminster.
It has been shown  that  products of
the   Fraser  Valley   have   been   lying
rotting on the ground  while at the
same   time   foreign   cabbages,   pita- ,
toes,    etc.,    have   been   sold   on   the j
markets    of    Van. ouver    and    New

i were  pn perly marketed  this would
not be the ease,    The quality of the
Fraser    Valley    product   is  Ibe  best
.grown���wholesome and fit to grace
the table of any BrltLh Columbian
citizen, and the:e is no earthly reason wby the very large pnrt of the
money sent out of tiie coast cities
should not be distributed among the
i farmers of the Fraser Valley. A

summer and fall would help most
wonderfully in making lhe coming

Mrs. George Debeck Celebrates the
Hundredth Anniversary of Her Birth
,1,      /-Inl..-.!.!--     �� '���	
(From The British Columbian.)
The one hundredth birthday of
Mrs. George Debeck, the oldest
white woman in British (.olumbia,
brought sixty-two direct descendants
to her home in Eburne Saturday-
whore her birthday was celebrated.
Some thirty-live descendants were
unable to be present. Still mentally
alert, Mrs. Debeck has a vivid memory which carries her back fifty
years to the early events of the
x. v Westminster district, to which
she emigrated in the early sixties.
Mis 1)- beck has six surviving sons
ind daughters, five of whom attended the celebration Saturday. Those
present from this city were: Mrs.
James Bell, Mr. and Mrs. H. A. Wilson nnd family; Mrs. Uui.hes aad her
daughter. Mrs. (Dr.) Lewis, of Seattle; Mr Frank Hughes, Captain
.-.nd Mrs. Debeck, Mr. and Mrs. C. S.
Tait nnd son. Mr. and Mrs. M. N.
Matheson and family, Mrs. Warren
Deheck. Mr. and Mrs. Chaplain and
children. Mrs. Warren Debeck, Jr.,
Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Hand and family.
The other descendants came from
Salem, Oregon: Seattle, Nanaimo,
Penticton and Vancouver.
During fhe evening Mrs. G. It. Ash-
well, of Chilliwack, the first woman
to call on Mrs. Deheck after she had
arrived In Ne-.v Westminster, called
to pay her respects to Mrs. Debeck.
Mr. and Mrs. T. J. Trapp. of this city,
ivere also present.
Eliza Ann Daw was born in Canterbury, N. n.. in 1814, and in 1834
married George Debeck of Ereder-
lckton. After 34 years of married
life in their native province, Mr. and
Mrs. Deheck answered the call to
the west, coming to British Columbia by way of the Isthmus of Panama, bringing most of their twelve i
children, some of them men and 1
women grown, with them. They settled in New Westminster, and in and
near this city Mrs. Debeck has spent
the balance of her life.
While taking a keen interest in
present day affairs Mrs. Debeck lives
now largely in the past of which she
has a lively memory. The other
day while conversing with a friend
_c Eburne, a band of happy, laugh-
tog children passed on their way to
a picnic. Airs. Debeck described a
picnic she attended, her first, long
ago in her New Brunswick home,
and vividly recalled her dress of
white material, and her many
friends who enjoyed the outing with
her, ft developed that Mrs. Debeck
was then but seven years old, and
that the picnic she so readilly re-
culled, was held just 93 years before.
With mental  faculties almost  un-
impaired, Mrs. Debeck is still living
a happy,    useful    life.    She spends
much   of  her   time   in   doing   fancy
needle work, of a class which Is the
despair of all imitators.    For many
years  she  has  had   samples  of  her!
work  on  dlsnlay at the New West-!
minster   exhibition,   for   which     she)
ha*   *-Af>r.i.-i   many  prizes   and   di-l
plnmas,  and  she  will  make several
entries  in   this  class    next  autumn, i
Last week the Kewpie Society of this'
oily  held   a  sale  of  home  work   for
some  charity,   and   the   handsomest
piece nf needlework shown   wns  donated hy Mrs. Debeck, who had just
Hnlshed it In time for tho sale.

TORONTO, June 30���After one
of the bitterest contests in the history of Ontario politics, a herculean
effort on the part of the Liberal Opposition to greatly reduce the Conservative majority in the Legislature failed yesterday. The slogan
of the Liberals, "Abolish the bar,"
made the prohibition of the liquor
traffic in Ontario the supreme issue
in the campaign.
The new house will be composed
of   83   Conservatives;     _6    Liberals
Dr.  Reaume Defeated.
.lames   Whitney,   former   premier of ihe province, and the leader '
of the Government party, had  his
majority in Dundas reduced b> nearly live hundred.    Hon. Dr. Reaume,!

was the only member of the former i
cabinet to  be defeated,      A three- j

Toronto, which for years baa been
the Conservative stronghold, held
out some hope for the Llheruls, as!
there had been two new seats created, but the Conservatives not only
held the eight old seats, but they
also captured the two new ones.
