Cowl of Revision for Delta Wns Held
nt   Now   Westminster   on
Friday Morning.
The court of revision of ihe provincial voters' list for the electoral districts of New Westminster City
Dewdney and Delia, was held ln New
Westminster on Monday morning last.
There was the usual small attendance
and the work was completed at an
early hour. The court was formally
adjourned until Tuesday morning at
11 o'clock according to the custom
in order to allow any who may have
been delayed la reaching the city to
���present 'reasons to-nnorrow wihy
their names should not be struck off
the voters' list.
Taken altogether there have not
been quite so many struck off the
list in these three electoral districts
as at the last revision, according to
Government Agent Fletcher, In New
Westminster City 1U2 names have
been Btruck off the list, 15 off the
Delta list and nine off the Dewdney
list. Included in those struck off the
list arc some who have moved away
since the list was last compiled and
some who have died. Those who
made proper representations that
they were entitled to vote had their
name lefl on the list.
A large Increase has taken place
In the- number of voters In these three
districts since the last election. While
definite returns have not yet been
made, it is estimated that there will
be fully 2<100 voters on the list for
New Westminster City as opposed to
23S-1 names on the list at the last
election, In the Delta at the last
election there were 1000 names on
the voters' list, while this year there
will be fully 1800. In the Dewdney
tiistrict there were some 1200 on the
list at Ihe last election while this
year there will be some 1300 names
on the new list.
The work of preparing the printed
lists Is now being proceeded with as
rapidly as possible and the lists will
fc-e issued within the next few days.
Copies will be sent to the returning
officer of each constituency for use
during the election and Mr. Fletcher
will also keep a few on hand in case
any one wishes to procure one.
Amount   of   Sinking   limit    is      Vow
965,700 aud Municipality Will
Soon Redeem Debentures.
The dyking debentures of the Municipality of Delta are In good shape.
Starting 1892, $115,000 was raised by
debenture for carrying on extensive
dyking throughout the Delta. These
were redeemable within 20 years antl
from present figures this will be
easy of accomplishment. To meet the
Interest and provide for a sluicing
fund a special tax has been levied
yearly. The sinking fund has been
put out to earn and the Investments
living good the fund has increased
materially so that It will be possible
to pay -oft the entire indebtedness
.is it comes due. The sinking fund
has ibeen put out In first mortgages
and the remaining $7,100 of ll was
so disposed of about two weeks ago.
The amount of che sinking fund is
now $05,700. The whole proposition
has been well handled and it is unnecessary to add that the dyking Itself has been of Inestimable advantage to the entire Delta.

As elsewhere on the Coast, the
Delta, was visited by a very heavy rain
on Monday and Tuesday. Some were
heard to remark that it was the
heaviest rainfall ever experienced
here. This is not so, however, for
while 1 'i inches of renin fell in the
two days, 500 tons to the acre, as
much as two inches of rain has been
known  to fall   here In  one  day.

-At a  meeting held    at    MoiNeely's
Hall   on   Thursday   evening    of     last
week,  Mr.  John Oliver was given the
Liberal   nomination   for  Delta  riding.
It had been  the original Intention, as
announced   in   the   Times,   to  hold   a
convention at Surrey Centre on  Monday   hut   at   the   meeting   here   those
in   attendance  from   various   parts   '���;'
ihe   riding  concluded   that   in   order
to avoid  Inconvenience and delay the
nomination     could  Just   us   well   be
made  that  evening. The meeting was
called   by  Mr.   Oliver,   who  addressed
a Ladner audience  for  the-  first  time
jas  leader   of the  Opposition  In    the
! Provincial   House.        Following      his
'speech   the   hearers     voted     that     a
j nomination   was    quite     unnecessary
!and  unanimously named  him as Lih-
i eral candidate for Delta.    Mr. Mii:iri,
��� member   for  Chilliwack   in   the   local
'house,   accompanied   .Mr.   Oliver     and
also addressed the meeting.
There was a good attendance and
1 .Mr. Oliver was given a good hearing.
: As one of the chief issui s of the pres-
i ,-nt campaign is the railway question,
.Mr. Oliver's opinions on this are of
Interest, Interviewed on the subject Mr. Oliver remarked that ns a
matter of course any railway compel.i>- proposing to build in British
Columbia would treat with the government, the party in power. ''I
have repeatedly stated that we are
not opposed to tlic- coining of the
Canadian Northern but ure anxious
to bring it in. 'l'he difference between us and the McBride administration is purely n difference of
mi tnnd. Our belief is that the great
Importance of this difference of
method will be recognized by the people.
"My proposition would he to get
the Dominion and Provincial cash
subsidies for the road from Yellow-
head, clown the north Thompson to
Kamloops; then by way of Nicola
Lake to Merrill, up the Coldwater to
the Summit, down the Coquahalla to
Hope, and thence to the Coast.
"1 understand the Canadian Northern objects to building through the
Hope mountains on account of the
grade. 1 look upon the pass through
the Hope mountains as one of great
Importance. If the Canadian Northern is not prepared to build through
that pass upon receipt of a reasonable subsidy, 1 would advocate that
the   road   through   the   Hope   moun
tains should be constructed by the
government road, connecting with
the V. V. & E., and the B. C. Electric
railroads to the west of Hope moun-
talns, and with lhe V. V. & E., the
Kettle Valley Railway and the Canadian Northern Railway, to the east of
the mountains. If this were clone,
running rights could be granted to
all these roads, on a basis similar to

the   securing   of   a   water  system   for

'that  has  been made of  the  proposed

I could not say whether Edith was
speaking ironically or uot. 1 dropped
Ihe subject.
1 had gone to Florida, where Edith
was spending llie winter, to ask  her
| to be my wife.    Since we did  not re-
j side in the same place when at home
1 had had no opportunity of knowing
, how she stood with any one except
myself. Therefore before making her
aware of my intentions I resolved to
covertly  draw  forili  [he  opinions of
I certain members of her own sex.
There were a number of girls at tbe
same hotel with her, and 1 thought 1
might gather evidence from them. Rut
after a couple of days' stay among
them It seemed to me thnt Edith either kept herself voluntarily aloof
from them or had been left out of
their little coterie. 1 soon became good
friends with them and proceeded to
elucidate tbe matter. What was my
surprise to discover that not one of
llieiii would speak well of her, and
many of them spoke ill of her.
This was a shock.    1 bad supposed
thai good opinions of one who seemed
io   me   to   be  so  deserving  of  them
would  come   merely   for  the  asking.
But  no,    if  1  were  lo sum  up   ber
character upon the evidence of those
who must know her, rather than marry her it would be better for me that j
I bud never been born.   One declared i
that she was vain, another selfish, an-
other  untruthful.    Indeed, every  one j
attributed   to   her   some   fault.     Not
willing   to   condemn    her   without   a
hearing, 1 asked her why she did not j
i make companions of the other young I
Indie's in tbe hotel.
"Oh." she replied disdainfully,
"they've got up a mutual admiration
society and have no use for any girl
except themselves."
The reply was not satisfactory. I
was bitterly disappointed. The only
thing for me to do was to go hack
north and drop Edith from my mind.
Bul she was attractive to me��� very attractive. She was pretty and engaging. 1 didn't wish to give her up. I
made up my mind, however, to be true
to the principle I had riiuneiuted to
Edith herself at the beginning of this
story. 1 packed my trunk and paid my
bill at the hotel.   Then I did what men

VICTORIA, Nov. 1.���Premier McBride In an Interview on Saturday explained the financial features of the
agreement with the Canadian Northern Railway Company and in particularly emphasized the ampb; security
the province would have under the
terms of tbe final contract. "The
province will have a first mortgage
upon the lines of the Canadian Northern in British Columbia," he said.
"The final contract with the company
will obligate it to furnish good and
sufficient bonels to complete the work
within the specified time.' In addi-
t'ion to this the Premier pointed out
that Messrs. Mackenzie eS: Mann and
thc C. N. R. come to the local government with their reputations endorsed not only by the local Conservative administrations of Manitoba and
Ontario, but also by the Liberal governments of Quebec, AlberU and Sas-
i katchewnn.        In   addition   to   this   it
j must bo borne in mind that this company has been strongly entrenched
by Sir. Wilfrid Laurler's administration, from which it Ins received large
subsidies. Surely the government of
liritish Columbia should want no bet-
ti-r evidence of the bona Hid-1;; of these
people than might be secured in this
The  People's Bargain,
The Premier again     dw-.'lt  on  the
reasons  his  government  bad   fur de-
i terrlng the signing of lhe Una! contract until the pep',- of ihe province
- bn,l an opportunity lo pass on the
main outlines of whai was essentially  their  bargain.
"When Mr. Minn waited on me
here-,'' sabl tin- I reni ii r. "be- was prepared   to  sign   tin- final  contract  for
ibe     e-in,-.triii-linn      of     tie--   c'a ladlan
Northern   Railway    through    British
Columbia.   Hut  I   fell  Hint.  In view of
the   lively   Interest   which   tin-   i pie
of tin' province would tnke in the
project, and lb- llkllhood of many
meetings and discussions, aim the important points arising therefrom, it
would be better to defer this final step
' until Just before the House assembled. By this time very likely the
aspects of the case would be well
covered, and the document could be
mad/? as complete in detail as local
conditions  would warrant.
This is a people's bargain and I
have tbe right to bring the people as
closely In touch with my negotiations
as possible.
Meantime, the memorandum of the
agreement, given to the country this
morning, contains the core o'f the
bargain which I pledge myself to
bring  before   parliament.
My promise to British Columbia In
this respect is specific and failure to
implement It with legislation, followed by the construction of the road,
-leaves no alternative to me but to resign."
Safeguarding llie Province.
When the bonds are paid over they
will not. go to the company, but to
tbe province and will be paid out by
lhe  province   as   the   work   proceeds
and value tor that expenditure can
be shown. In this respect, and in all
others concerning the handling of the
moey, a course already pursued by
the provinces of Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta will be adhered to as
far as local conditions will warrant.
I am anxious to guarantee to the
electors of this country that the domestic policy of the Canadian Northern Railway Company will be effective in every particular. s> that it
may lend Itself lo the development of
our rural districts, anel to the upbuilding of our towns and cities as
far   ns   possible.
Tne question of the rates to be
charged by the railway is an all-important one, and while the Dominion
Act. uneler which our railways com-
niissTon operates, and which both Sir
Wilfrid Laurier and Mr. Borden
promised the people of Canada would
In i veVy way meet rthe lobjacit 'Dor
which it was enacted, may be all that
the country is to leave nothing undone
thi��� will safeguard our Interests in
every respect, and If possible still
mon effectually guard our rights to
fair and eepiitabe rates of transportation.
