LADNER, B. 0. THURSDAY, MAY 21, 1914.
$1.00 A YEAR
Are Estimating Value of B.C. Con-
dewing Plant, Ladner, for
a Sure Market.
There is an ever-Increasing interest in the new milk-condensing
plant opened in Ladner a fortnight
ago as tne farmers of the community
realize the importance of the industry to the welfare of dairy farming
in Delta. Daily the number of patrons increases.
The B.C. Milk Condensing Company's plant is a comprehensive one,
built to accommodate machinery and
apparatus with a capacity for handling 50,000 pounds of milk daily.
The present installation will tike
care of fully half this quantity���
25,000  pounds.
The    company's    Ladner    factory
consists of a well-appointed process-
lug building, 80x160 feet In dimen-
[I sion,  with  a  separate power  build-
""ing and a large water tank.    In the
factory   are  installed   modem   condensing,   separating   and   other   apparatus���practically     every     device
known   for   the   processing  of   milk
for the present day demands.
For the Ladner plant is not only
a condensing plant, but has been
fitted and ls being used for the production of such by-products as sweet
cream for the Ice cream trade and
"sugar milk" for the use of confectioners and fancy bakers. Of
course, the staple product is "B.C.
Evaporated Milk," but the company
will be ln a position to at all times
cater to the more direct trade for
milk products.
After but scarcely more than a
fortnight's operation the receipts of
milk at the Ladner condensory are
in excess of 10,000 pounds, and with
the present rate of Increase there
la little doubt that this amount will
soon be doubled. At the company's
Chilliwack condensory the first re-
H-ipts were small, but the tally sheet
there has shown in less than three
jears an enormous Increase. A
like increase is confidently expected
al   I.adner.
The company is paying a good
figure for milk, and its officers signify their intention of paying a fair
market  price at  all  times.
In Delta there are probably nearly
1,000 milk cows, and in the tributary territory of Point Roberts���
just across the International boundary���are nearly three hundred
more. The owners of these 1300
cows are thinking seriously. Some
time ago they sent the bulk of their
milk to a New Westminster factory,
or rather the Delta farmers did, the
product of the Point Roberts dairies

Prospector Thinks He Has Locat-eyi
It Near Cheuasin Reserve
���Interest Aroused.
Two weeks ago an expert oil prospector, experienced in many lands,
came unostentatiously to Delta and
quietly took up his occupation. His
comings and goings aroused only
casual comment at first. Then the
Calgary oil boom threw him into the
limelight, and lt became known that
he had been encountered what he
considered highly favorable signs.
Near the point where the O. B.
Mayne road strikes the gulf of
Georgia, with the Chewasln reserve
ln close proximity, he has posted notice of claim. Further than that, he
has entered into active negotiations
with the owners of adjacent farming
Delta farmers do not lose their
heads easily, but they are following
the trend of events with interest.
Some of the farmers have signed
agreements, the consideration being
nominal, giving the right to prospect
on their lands and to lay pipes, and
agreeing to sell if oil is located.
This is the first occasion on which
the presence of oil in Delta has been
definitely asserted. An old oil man
who knows the municipality and the
surrounding districts well stated
that in his opinion the formations
were favorable, being similar to
those  found  in  oil-bearing sections.
Residents recall in this connection
the attempt to locate oil at Steveston, made some five years ago. A
company was formed and stock
widely sold. A well was drilled for
four hundred feet and then abandoned, oil not being found.

Summary   of   Results   Obtained   by
Poultry  Division  at  Ottawa
Experimental Farm.
Do not feed too soon. When the
chick is hatched it has a sufficient
supply of nourishment ln the yolk
of the egg to last it for several days.
What the chick requires for* the first
'few days is not feed but warmth and
A little sand or grit first: When
the chicks are removed to their
brooding quarters there should be
some coarse or fine chick grit scattered where they can have free access to It. They should then be left
until they show positive signs of
hunger, which would be between the
second and third days after hatching.
They may then be given some bread
crumbs that have been very slightly
moistened with milk. This may be
scattered on clean or chick grit. If
being brooded by a hen she will see
that no food Is allowed to lie around,
but if in a brooder that part of the
food that the chicks do not pick up
in a few minutes should be removed,
as nothing in feeding causes so much
trouble as leaving food of that nature around until it is sour.
Feed for the first ten or twelve
days. The following dally ration of
five feeds given about two and a
half hours apart and continued from
the time the chicks are two to three
days out of the shell until ten or
twelve days of age may be altered
or adopted to suit conditions: First
teed���Dry bread crumbs slightly
moistened with Tnilk; second
feed���Finely cracked mixed grains
or commercial chlcfc. feed; third feed
���rolled oats; fourth feed; dry bread
crumbs moistened with milk; fifth
feed���fine cracked  mixed grain.
In addition to the above give the
chicks daily a little green food such
as grass, lettuce, sprouted oats, etc.
Do not have the moistened bread
sloppy, but in a crumbly state, and
during this period let the chicks on
to fresh soil or grass every day If
Feed after ten or twelve days���
After the chicks are ten days to
two weeks old, coarser foods may
be allowed. The Infertile eggs may
be boiled and mixed with the mashed
food and the bread and milk discontinued. Hoppers in which is put
cracked grains and dry mash or
rolled oats may be placed where the
chicks can have free access to them.
As soon as they become accustomed
to tbe hoppers all hand feeding except the mash may be discontinued.
If the chicks are on range it will be
found that after a time they will get
careless about coming when called,
at which time the mash may be
dropped and dependence placed entirely on the hopper feeding.
Place grit and water, also a dish
of sour mlik, if possible, where the
chicks will have free access to them.
Nothing provides animal food in better form than does milk; the chicks
like it and thrive on lt.
Deliveries   to   Condensory   Are   Increasing��� Number of Shippers
Is  Fifty-six.
Everything is not complete as yet,
but the Ladner condensory of the
B.C. Milk Co. is fast getting into
the routine of operation.
Contractor Duncan Gilchrist is this
week attending to little odds and
ends of work about the building.
The full complement of machinery
is not in yet, but most of it and
sufficient is installed to permit of
active operation. One hundred cases
of milk a day were being turned out
the first of the week, and the number will jump up and up as the supply Increases. The capacity is 500
cases a day. When the plant first
started last week the dally output
was 70 cases, so that already there
has been a considerable increase.
The test bottles in the receiving
room indicate that fifty-six local
farmers are furnishing the condensory with milk. These test bottles, which are numbered, are allotted one to each shipper, and daily
samples of milk received are placed
In them. With the first sample Is
placed a tablet of corrosive sublimate, which is poisonous but which
will keep milk sweet for fifteen
At the end of this period the contents of the individual bottles are
tested, and ln accordance with the
results shown the shipper receives
remuneration for his product.
No shipments have yet been made
from the local plant. After processing the canned milk remains in the
plant for fifteen days, and is then
tested   before   being   shipped   away.
The local factory is as modern a
one as there is in British Columbia.
The opportunity to witness it.in
operation should be taken advantage
of by everybody.

No Abatement of Excitement in Calgary���Stocks  Sell Freely at

CALGARY, May 19.���There Is no
abatement ln the oil excitement. The
Dingman well gushes at least once
a day, an oily substance that burns,
has been cut into in the bottom of
the McDougall-Segur, and the Mammoth has opened a pocket of wet
gas. Practically all of the other
wells now drilling are showing up
well, although none of them has
been drilled deep enough to show
anything material.
The stock buying of Saturday was
repeated today. There may have
been a few less shares sold, but they
were higher in price and probably
more money changed hands. Many
of the stocks are being freely taken
at prices several times in advance of
subscription and business is feeling
the effects of the loosening money
and the restoration of confidence.

Fraser River Fishermen's Protective
Association Plan an Active
(From  The  British  Columbian.)
The Fraser River Fishermen's
Protective Association was on Saturday placed on a solid footing as the
first step towards the elimination of
the Japanese fishermen from the
Fraser river. The meeting, which
was held in the Conservative Club
rooms, was a representative one and
with the exception of one or two
minor interruptions, was conducted
in a harmonious manner.
The constitution and by-laws, as
drafted by the committee, were
adopted, also the following resolution, setting forth the aims and policy of the association was passed
after the matter had been thoroughly discussed by the members:
"As we consider that the Asiatics
on the Fraser river are a deadly
menace to this district, because they
are steadily driving the white and
Indian fishermen off the river and
sapping the financial life of the Fraser Valley to the extent of approximately a million dollars a year,
which is diverted from the local
channels of trade and sent to an
alien land, where it is lost to this
section forever, that unless this
steady, insidious invasion of the
Asiatics is checked quickly, one of
tho greatest commercial assets of
our province will pass entirely into
the hands of aliens by nature, if
not by name, and all the benefits of
our fishing industry will go to enrich the coffers of a nation across
the sea; Now, therefore, the Fraser River Fishermen's Protective Association, representing the white and
Indian fishermen on the Fraser river from the gulf of Georgia to Mission City bridge, do hereby resolve,
that in order to preserve the fishing
industry of the Fraser river to the
white and Indian fishermen, the Dominion and provincial governments
be petitioned to enact legislation as
follows: 'That no licenses be is-
ued to Asiatics to fish above the
Fraser river bridge at New Westminster.
���' 'That in 1915 and thenceforth
the number of licenses to be issued
to Fraser river fishermen be restricted to a total to be agreed upon by
the interested canneries and this association, and
" 'That In 1915 and thenceforth licenses shall be issued to the white
and Indian fishermen on the Fraser
river for one month prior to their
issuance to any othei person whatsoever.' "
An organization committee covering the various drifts and districts on
the river was appointed by President
Maiden, an active campaign being
outlined for thc enrollment of five
hundred members. It was pointed
out by different members who addressed the meeting that the vote
was the strongest weapon at the
command of the association, and for
that reason nil members joining will
be urged to ���'et their name on the
voters' list. With five hundred or
more voters enrolled, the association
thinks that the required legislation
can be Secured from the government.
It was pointed out at the meeting
end a clause to that effect is Included in the constitution that this association is not in any manner a
union, nor would It be antagonistic
to tlie cannerymen, being only ae the
name implies a protective association
with its main object the elimination
of the Japanese fishermen,
Before adjournment the following
resolution, in reference to statements
made by members of the board of
trade in Vancouver recently, in connection with the grain elevator location, was adopted, a copy of which
will be forwarded to tlie various
public botlies in the province and to
"Being so well acquainted with
the Eraser River and its capacity for
iU'eommodating ocean-going traffic,
we heartily endorse the stand taken
by the New Westminster board nf
trade with reference to the Dominion
government grain elevator controversy and resent the unjust accusation that our fishing Industry is an
Impediment to ocean-going traffic
on the river."
Mr. C H. Stuart-Wade, representing the New Westminster hoard or
trade, was In attendance, while the
Trades and Labor Council was represented by President Cameron of
that organization.
Second Organization Meeting of Farmers' Milk Company Will Be
Held Here in June.
The organization of the milk producers of the Fraser Valley into a
co-operative selling company���a
scheme uoon which a number of the
most prmninent dairymen of the
Valley have been working for the
last year���is now in fair way to become a fact. A second organization
meeting will be held in New Westminster early in June, and by that
time the provisional board of directors will have formulated plans for
the floating of the Fraser Valley
Farmers' Milk Co., formed last fall
under thc Agricultural Societies Act.
The company will not be a pigmy
concern, for the capital stock is to
be 1250,000, which will be placed
among the farmers of the Lower
Mainland of British Columbia. Under the Agricultural Societies Act
the provincial government may assist such organizations by an ad-*
vance of 50 per cent, of the value of
the subscribed stock. When a sufficient amount has been subscribed
���not necessarily fully paid stock���
the government will be asked to assist the company under the act.
The meji behind this most Important movement are not proceeding upon a narrow, short-sighted
plan; but on the contrary contemplate a system of handling the milk
product of the Fraser Valley, which,
through economy in transportation,
receiving and distributing, will, it
is believed, cheapen the cost of milk
to the consumer and greatly improve its quality, at the same time
enhancing the return to the producer.
No fault is found with the handlers of milk and cream In the cities,
either wholesale or retail; it is the
system that is claimed to be wrong.
It is probable that when the Fraser Valley Farmers' Milk Company
is ready for business the cities will
be divided into districts, in each of
which a dairy depot will be established, from which deliveries will be
made, greatly shortening the haulage under the present system and
avoiding the extreme expense of
present delivery, with rival vendors
serving a scattered trade spread over
a wide area. It is claimed that frequently four or five milk wagons
may be seen on a street at the same
time. Eventually, under the new
system, there may be no delivery at
all, so many depots being established that the consumer may purchase
fresh, cold, sanitary milk within a
block or two of his home.
Another point strongly emphasized by the promoters of the co-operative company is that much can be
saved bj the organization through
the ability of a large selling concern
to profitably utilize every ounce of
surplus milk. This is impossible
under the present system. In the
many independent city dairies, each
with more or less milk left over
every day, there is a very consider-
abl waste. In fact the avoidance of
waste���waste of milk, waste of expensive energy in distribution, and
waste in business executive���is the
keynote of the new company's plans.
The provisional directors of the
Fraser Valley Farmers' Milk Co. are

Bargain - Hunters
In this community are hundreds of
individuals aud families on the watch
for an advertisement which will offer
them what they want at an advantageous price.
Call them bargain-hunters if you will, but there
is nothing wrong in waiting for a bargain, especially when the seller is anxious to sell at a
reduced price.
One family wants a new carpet���the need is
not urgent. Another family is looking forward
to buying a set of dining-room furniture���it

One man is thinking of buying himself a watch.
One woman a shopping bag; another an umbrella.
All can be made to buy earlier���by advertising.
A Note to Merchants.
Stimulate business by the offer of some slow-
moving lines at special prices. Brighten up
business by advertising some desirable goods at
reduced prices. Make advertising bullish dull
business. Often you can tempt the buyer who
is biding his or her time, to buy from you���at
a time of your naming.
Shop Where You are Invited to Shop
Libellers of Fraser River Evidently
Fail to Impress the Grain
(From The British Columbian.)
"It ls evident from the preliminary report made to the government
by the Grain Commission of Canada,
that the slams given the Fraser river
by advocates of other sites for the
location of the grain elevators have
had no weight with the commission,"
said Mr. J. D. Taylor, M.P., this
morning. Mr. Taylor went on to
say that the majority report of the
commission simply indicated that if
the grain traffic from the Prairie
provinces westward was to be an
experiment the experiment might
be carried out at some point
on Burrard Inlet. However, the
same report Indicates that in
the opinion of the commission, If
the traffic becomes as great as it ls
believed it will become, there will be
many elevators on the Fraser river,
and that this waterway will handle
the traffic.
"There is certainly nothing in the
report," concluded Mr. Taylor, "to
indicate any apprehension on the part
of the commission that the Fraser is
not now nor will always be open to
navigation of grain carrying ships."
The question of the location is
still an open one, and will be decided
by the government in the light of
cold business reasoning, and even
the "experimental" elevator has not
yet been located on Burrard Inlet.

CALGARY, Mhy 18.-���Twice yesterday the Dingman well became
temporarily a gusher. The first rush
of oil occurred about noon, while

Turnbull passed away yesterday
morning at 3:30 o'clock at the family residence, 608 Fifth avenue.
About four months ago Mr. Turnbull

He also owned considerable property in this city and district, and

league have included among others
clause D, as follows: "By co-operation with other bodies In the collection and dissemination of information regarding extensions of marketing opportunities, to secure a greater sale of the agricultural products
of the Fraser Valley."
The acting secretary of the league
in a circular report forwarded to
the different boards points out that
the effect of carrying out clause D,
which aims at the organization of
a market news service for the producers of the Valley, will be to necessitate the employment of an official whose duty it will be to Investigate local conditions, such as storage facilities, and provide the executive with a basis for the opening up
of new or the improvement of existing markets. The committee have,
therefore, recommended that steps
be taken to employ such an agent,
whose activities will be at the disposal of every body associated with
the league, for the purpose of extending marketing facilities between
producer and consumer.

Mr. Ashdown, of the Forestry
branch of the Dominion Agricultural
Department, was in the valley last
week teaching those interested in
the proper methods of slash burning and in the handling of fires during dry seasons. Mr. Ashdown is
an expert in tiii_ particular work,
having attended several of the most
advanced schools of forestry on the
American side of the line, and is
well qualified for his position. The
information he had to impart was
of special interest to farmers who
have slashings to burn and land to
clear, and the following out of his
instructions will relieve them of the
responsibility of makinc application
for a fire permit when thev have a
brush pile or a stump heap to burn.

they handle fires, as a little carelessness may be the cause of the

Five variety of beets were grown
during the season and the following
results obtained from two drills, 30
feet long: Egyptian Dark Red Turnip, eight pounds; Meteor, ten
Tiounds; Ruby Dulcet, fifty-live
pounds; Early Blood Red Turnip,
seventeen pounds, and Black Red
Ball eighteen pounds. These were

taken from two thirty-flour foot
drills, weighed ninety-two and a
half pounds. These were planted on
April 13 and harvested October 9.
Long white salsify, planted on
April 13 and harvested October 9,
recorded forty-seven pounds, this
was the only variety tested.
Eleven varieties of peas were
grown. Stratagem germinated badly and the moles attacked other varieties. A tabulated statement is
submitted In the report. Of cucumbers, three varieties were tested, the
Peerless White Spine was the most
prolific yielder, but the quality of
all   three  varieties  was  excellent.
In his report Supt. Moore states
that many varieties of melons have
been tried in the past two years but
without success ln ripening any of
them. In some cases, fruit formed,
but it was always too small to be
of use.
Eight varieties of sweet corn were
tested with a record of from 47 1-2
pounds to 21.4. The weight was
taken from an average of ten hills
and all corn was harvested in the
roasting stage or fit for table use.
In the squash line, the long vegetable marrow proved the most prolific. Cabbages were tested but the
result was not considered at all
comparable as several treatments
for maggots were made.
Lettuce averaged from 63 pounds
to 15 pounds taken from fifteen foot
drills.       Fourteen    varieties    were

CAMBIE, Lulu Island, May 19.���
The powers of the fence viewers,
officers the existence of whom is unknown to most ratepayers, was pointed out to the council yesterday afternoon by Thomas Kidd, who recommended that question of drainage in
the east end or the island be left
to them. Any ratepayer requiring
drainage may appeal to the fence
viewers. If they decide the applicant's claim is just, they may estimate the cost, make arrangements
for the assessment of property owners benefitting and order the work
done. The process is considerably
quicker than by local improvement.
Reeve Bridge did not favor an ap,-
peal to the fence viewers. Piecemeal drainage in the district east of
No. 5 road was useless, he declared,
and a comprehensive scheme under
local improvement should be followed.
As judge of the small debts court
at Steveston the council decided to
recommend the appointment of Mr.
O. E. Darling, at present police magistrate.
Reeve Bridge, councillors Foster,
Fentiman, Rees and Howell were
appointed to sit at the court of revision, which will be held on June
11. The contract for an approach
to Ihe bridge at Mitchell's Island
was awarded to R. E. Reece, the cost
being ?340. It was decided to clean
out the ditch on No. 6 road between
No.  19 and No. 20 roads.
Consideration in committee wu
given the Sea Island Dyking By-law.
This provides for an issue of $40,-

Evidence That Flow of Honey in Valley Will Be in Proportion to That
ot Milk.
(From the Chilliwack Progress.)
Mr. Todd, of the Apiary branch
of the Provincial Department of
Agriculture, was in the valley last
week instructing the interested beekeepers in the best methods to
adopt in handling honey bees. Four
meetings were held, one at Isaac
Kipp's, Chilliwack, on Monday; one
at J. Fletcher's, on the Chilliwack
River Road, on Tuesday; another .at
Jno. Chapman's, on Camp Slough,
Wednesday, and the fourth at WI!
Ham Walker's place, East Chilli
wack, on Thursday. These meeting
places weer quite central for the
four sections of Chilliwack and all
were fairly well attended, that at
J. Fletcher's particularly so.
Mr. Todd's work here lay along
the line of Instructing the bee-keepers in the keeping of bees for profit.
He pointed out the mistakes many
were making in not keeping the
colonies up to the proper strength
for making a surplus supply of
honey. Attention to their needs in
the early spring, so that when the
first flowers of spring appeared,
they would be strong enough to take
flight and gather honey, was emphasized. Colonies which commenced early to make brood were
the ones which the beekeeper would
find to be profitable.
In his examination of the bee
colonies throughout the district, Mr.
Todd was particularly pleased to see
a vast improvement over those of
the same date a year ago. In some
cases he found as many as seven
frames of brood, which to him  was
floors are of cement. Water is sup
plied to the cows by means of a
patent trough which fills automatically, assuring clear running water
all the time. The water is supplied
from an artesian well on the farm.
An electric milking machine with
a capacity of 62 cows, that number
of stalls having been fitted up, does
all the milking. The milk goes into
covered milk containers fitted in such
a manner that it is impossible for
the milk to become contaminated.
The contents of the containers are
dumped Into a cooling and bottle filling machine and the bottles are automatically sealed.
These bottles are previously washed by a patent washing machine and
every precaution ls taken to have all
foreign substance removed.
The cleanliness maintained In
both the barn and milk room is most
praiseworthy. In the opinion of
everyone who has visited this up-to-
date dairy farm, the aome of perfection has been reached in the
handling of milk.

municipality will fight the Mackenson case, taking it to the Privy
Council if need be. The council has
Instructed the municipal clerk to
communicate with the various municipalities and ask their support ln
the event that an appeal to the Privy
Council Is found necessary.
The question involved is a very
serious one to all municipalities, in
the opinion Of the council, as It practically means that whenever a road
or even trail is opened up by the
council the municipality can be held
responsible for Its upkeep in case of
an accident occurring thereon.
This would be very expensive and
in fact impossible. It is to prevent
a dangerous precedent being set that
the Surrey council wish to take the
case to the highest court In the land.
The case In question was an action
for damages claimed by Mr. Mackensen through an accident caused by
the poor condition of one of the
roads ln fhe municipality. The case
was decided against the municipality and $500 damages awarded tr
the plaintiff.
