In Splendidly  Contested Game Sapperton Defeats Beavers by Small
Margin���Score S-0.

LADNER, B. C. SATURDAY, JUNE 7, 1913.
$1.00 A YEAR.
In holding the strong Sapperton
aggregation to two lone tallies in
their exhibition game Tuesday evening the Ladner Beavers more than
satisfied their most ardent supporters hy the performance. Sapperton
were champions or tne Royal City
intermediates last year and have suf-
fered only one defeat so far this
season.

EBURNE, Point Grey, June 5.-���
Medica) Health Officer Hall examined Wm. Dawson, a remittance man
living at Eburne, yesterday and pronounced him insane, recommending
his removal to the provincial insane
asylum. Dawson lives in a cottage
near the Swift-Canadian Company's
abbatoir, and has been the victim
of hallucinations for some time. That
which brought him within the police drag net was a persistent belief
that he was a Point Grey detective.
With the regulation step he paraded up and down Fourth street, examining doors and windows to see
that they were secure, and performing all the functions which he
believed belonged to a full-fledged
detective.       Constable     MacDonald

with a bombardment of  the  Beaver

for  the  first  few  minutes,  but  the
superiority of the locals in speed was

WEEKLY MARKET.
Ducklings were plentiful at the
weekly market in New Westminster
Friday morning and commanded excellent prices, 30 to 35 cents per
pound, being obtainable. Broilers
were again in evidence, but as increased supply weakened the market
the price ranging    from    $3.50    to
an  increase of 956.      The    Sunday
I school scholars were 2729,    an    increase of 196;  teachers 263, an In-
i crease of 45.
In Vancouver the amount contributed by the parishes for parochial and extra parochial work was
about $.��9.r,00 for the year. The income of St. Seorge's cUti;-.'.* but
year was $6000. St. Mary's church,
Kerrlsdale, was about to open a new
$9000 church, Trinity during the
past year had opened buildings valued at $11,000, St. Mark's had built a
church hall costing $5000. In the
report of the rural deanwry It was
recommended that a new parish
could be made up from part of Central Park and part of Cedar Cottage.
In the treasurer's report it appeared that the amount contributed to missions last vear amounted
to  $8772.56
Powerful evangelistic addressee
were delivered by Revs. C. W. Whittaker and D. G. McDonald to the
ladies attending tlie regular W. C.
T. U. meeting, held at the home ot
Mrs. H. Willcox, on Tuesday, June
3rd. Suitable hymns were sung and
the usual devotional exercises carried out. Mesdames I). B. Grant, G.
Sheldrake, II. Willcoek and C. VV.
Whittaker were delegated to attend
the annual general convention to
take place in New Westminster, June'
16th to 19th.
In   the   absence   of  the   president I
the  vice-president.  Mrs.  E.  Hutcherson,   occupied   the  chair.       Mrs.   R.
Stokes rendered  the solo,  "We may
work,  and  toil  and  care."
Rev. C. W. Whittaker, in a striking address, remarked, "The great
success of the Women's Christian
Temperance Union lies in the fact
that it was horn upon its kieei." A
minister once said to a stonecutter,
"I wish 1 could work upon stony
hearts as you work upon that stone."
"Perhaps you could, if you worked
more upon your knees," wa3 the reply. The moral was obvious. If
you wish success, a soul unspotted
from the things of this world, you
must fight inconsistency. Be charitable, lend a helping hand. Fight
against saloons, but remember the jjut
man behind the bar has a soul that
Christ died to save. Be careful
about your own home life. It has
been said that the greatest reform
leaders lose grip on their own boys.
We are fighting against principalities
and powers and our forces should
present a united front instead of
which they are often split into integral parts. The women of British
Columbia have no vote, but should
remember that home influence Is
more powerful than the ballot. You
should work to get those in power
who would rule In righteousness.
China offers a fine example of temperance work in the banishment of
the opium traffic. Like the old
Scotch lady who gathered fragments
of glass that the children's feet
should not be cut, may we so work
that the world may be won for
v'h.ist   and  inteiup-.anci-  ban.shed.
Upon the conclusion of Mr. Whit-
taker's address, Mrs. W. A. Kirkland contributed a solo, after which
Rev. D. G. McDonald spoke.
He was glad that he was a native
of the prohibition province of Prince
Edward Island. Great work had
been done there; where seventeen
policemen were needed now six did
the work. Jails were practically out
of business. The scripture he had
chosen was Paul's words, "Help those
women     who    labored     with    me."JFor

Programnte Arranged,
Many enjoyable functions have
taken place ou June 26th in the
Delta, but the elaborate preparations
for this year's celebration make* it
apparent that 1913 will be aa improvement on all previous effort- of
the Delta Driving Park Association
to cater to the amusement of the

From early morn till long past
midnight the programme provides
some feature. Franklin's ten-piece
band has been engaged and will discourse musical Items throughout tbe
day. June 26th is eagerly looked
forward to, and though no longer a
legal holiday, few, if any, residents
of the Delta will refrain from participating in the annual celebration.
Upon the arrival of the New Delta
at 10.30 a.m., a baud concert will
take place upon the wharf for half
an hour. Following this all hands
will adjourn to the lacrosse field,
where the Ladner Beavers aad
Eburne will tangle in an exhibition
game. Eburne are recognized as a
superior hunch of lacrosse exponents,
and great interest is being evinced
in this game following the splendid
showing made against the Sapperton
aggregation. The band will continue to favor the spectators with
selections at intervals.
A brief respite is afforded in the
official programme for lunch, and
in the afternoon the main attractiou
-will be found in the annual meet of
the Delta Driving Park Association.
A short but classy programme of
races has been drawn up, and attractive purses offered. Some excellent
racing is assured and in those with
sportive instinct dominant the picture of thoroughbreds struggling for
supremacy, enthusiasm will be roused. The band will be in evidence
throughout the afternoon, playing
before and between races.
The day's proceedings will culminate in a grand ball to be held in
McNeely Hall. The 26th of June
dance is recognized as one of the
most successful of thc season, and
this year should prove no different.
Franklin's five-piece orchestra will
provide the music and the ubiquitous Chas. Parson swill be on hand
to manage the floor. With such an
attractive day's enjoyment scheduled
the 26th of June, 1913, should'prove
one of the most successful of the
many Delta gala days.

NEED   OF  CO-OPERATION.
BUS HOME PRODUCTS.
Union Between the Drban and Rural
Communities Urged by Pro.
feasor Hill-Tout.
(From the British Columbian.)
Emphasizing the need of co-operation between the urban and rural
communities and among the farmers
themselves, among and between the
producers and consumers, and urging the argument that the co-operation and aid of the government was
justified in a matter that was not
merely local but province-w!d .
Professor Hill-Tout at the Progressive Association in the Royal Cafe
on Friday, praised the "buy home
product movement" as a step in tin-
right direction.
The guest of the occasion said
the key-note of the age was co-operation, as opposed to the individualism of past generations. This was
the day par excellence of corporate
rather than individual action. The
"buy home products" movement had
come at a most opportune time.
Conditions in the Fraser Valley demanded it.
Urban prosperity had grown tremendously, hut rural prosperity had
'not kept pace with il. While New
Westminster and Vaneouver had
shown a gratifying advance, some
rural sections had actually lost
ground. This state of things was
Injurious to both divisions of the
community.
No country, the speaker said, can
remain permanently prosperous unless its agricultural areas are properly utilized and developed. The
interdependence of town and country should he recognized. Some
fifteen or twenty or, it. would appear,
even more millions were being seht
out of the Province annually for
produce that could be grown on the
fertile and broad acres of this province. This money brought no business to the cities and starved the
rural districts by robbing them of
business.
There was apathy in both town
and country. The people of the
cities had heen so busy with their
own affairs that they had not hat!
time to consider those of tlu*>ir n.ral
neighbors and the farmers had been
laboring under the burd-m of 'nek
of co-operation and the use o: worn
out business methods. Fiir'iUer-
more they had never had the government aid and advice that had
benefited the farmers of tha state of
Washington and of New Zealand,
Tho weekly market in New Westminster had helped, hut it had not
gone far enough. The market n riled cold'storage and warehouse facilities. He would liko to sea the
government send out organizers and
Instructors to show the farmer-; how-
to prepare their produce for the
market and to establish selling
agencies,
; In conclusion Professor Hill-Tout
said the watchword of the movement
should he united effort. Division
meant weakness and failure. The
speaker was lustily applauded as he
resumed his seat.
Mr. W. T. Reid. before moving a
vote of thanks to the guest of the
day, read a telegram of congratulation and good wishes from the Vaneouver Progress Club, which, addressed to Secretary Darling, expressed the opinion that what was
good for one was good for all. The
telegram was received with hearty
applause. In reply Secretary Darling wired that the association was
meeting with success and lt was
hoped thnt the two organizations
would monopolize the local markets
for local produce and stop the
drain of monev to a foreign country.
Aid. White seconded the vote of
thanks, which was passed by a
standing vote, when the guests sang
"For  He's  a  Jolly  Good  Fellow."
Vr. D. S. Curtis, in the chair, tendered the thanks of the Progressive
Association and its guests lo Professor Hill-Tout, who acknowledged
the hearty appreciation of his address in a few suitable words.
FEDERAL ESTIMATES.
WASHIJSxJTON STATE
Most   Buccessful   Display   Is   Carried I Many  Millions   Voted  by   Parliament
Through in  New  Westminster.
SATURDAY. MAY 31.
"It is a decided success and well
worth  while," is the declaration o
every person -who has examined th
Buy-Home-Products displays  in th
shops and stores of New Westmin
ster.    With scarcely an    exception
dealers  have  filled     windows  with
local and British Columbia manufactures,  ranging  in   number  of  items
from  half  a  dozen   to  no less  than
twenty-four.   It is surprising to most
buyers to find that everything in the
way   of   furniture   is   made   in   the
province and everything in the way
of bedding, mattresses, etc., is manufactured in this city.    Hardware and
furniture dealers have all placed surprisingly good displays in their windows, but the palm  must be  given
the   grocers,   for   the   purveyors   ol
eatables have many varieties of produce   to   display   while  other   lines
are  hampered  by  the smaller number of items of local manufacture,
It is noticeable that the Binall-y
stores in the outlying portions c"f
the city have shown a very keen interest in the contest and many of
the most creditable displays are to
be seen there. Those of two grocers, A. Barron, Sixth street, and
Matheson & Jacobson, Sixth street,
are unusually excellent, the latter
firm dressing two windows, and preserving a color scheme, one wondow
being done in reds, while the other
one is in greens. Welsh's West End
ston makes a creditable display,
while close beside it is shown British Columbia and New Westminster
made furniture and bedding, Mr. A.
R. Edmondson making excellent use
of local manufactures in decorating
his window. The New Westminster
Co-operative store on Sixth avenue,
shows twenty-four different articles
of local or provincial manufacture
in one window, all regularly handled
by grocers. There was not, in fact,
anything required by the average
housewife for her breakfast, luncheon and dinner menus, that could
not be selected from the window.
Columbia street from end to end
has its store windows massed with
local products, and the judges on
Monday will have some difficulty in
reaching a decision.
Front street comes into the contest strong. Here the fish markets
are displaying a tempting array of
products from local and provincial
waters. A dozen different varieties
of fish, preserved in a dozen different methods, are shown, while there
are oysters, clams, and other good
things from th egulf and streams.
VANCOUVER'S DAV.
WOMEN'S INSTITUTES.
CHILLIWACK, May 31.���The first
conference of the lower mainland
Women's Institutes will he held on
June 12 and 13 at Chilliwack in the
Lacrosse   Professionals   of   Terminal
City Have One on the Champions
���Score 8 to 4.
VANCOUVER, June 2.���It was
not the style or lacrosse which is to
be expected at o Minto Cup fixture
when the Vancouver professionals
walked through the Salmon Bellies
to the tune of eight goals to four
last Saturday at Hastings Park. Undoubtedly it was a whirlwind game,
both teams going hard nearly all the
time, but the play, especially on the
Salmon Belly home was very loose
and with the exception of a few
bursts of the old combination, the
New Westminster team was sadly
lacking in team play.
Despite the efforts of the New-
Westminster aggregation to put
ginger into the play, it seemed that
their every effort proved a failure.
They would bring the ball down to
the home, time and again and there,
at the critical moment, the ball
would he losi through a wide pifcis
of a misjudged throw. Grumpy
Spring, for once, did not break into
the score sheet, and Si Griffiths was
feeling pretty happy over this fact.
Last game Grumpy got four goals
and Si had unpleasant dreams for
days afterwards. The Vancouver
and Westminster defences both
i-hecked so closely that it was almost impossible to go through, in
fact, several of the Vaneouver goals
were the result of long shots, some
ot them almost from centre.
From the number of penalties,
which  were  handed   out,  during  the
in a Day's Session���Immigration
Figures.
OTTAWA, June 2.���After a day's
work during which money was voted at the rate of several thousand
dollars a minute, the main estimates
not previously considered, were all
dealt with on Saturday before 11.30
p.m.,  when  the House  rose.
This leaves the supplementary estimates, amounting to over twenty-
three millions; the railway subsidies, approximately twenty-five
millions, and perhaps a Grand Trunk
Pacific loan of ten to fifteen millions to be disposed of, in addition
to considerable legislation, before
the house rises.
Despite this rather heavy program
of work, which, under ordinary circumstances, would take weeks to
deal with, the expectation still is
that prorogation will take place on
Thursday afternoon. The probabilities are that the House will have to
sit until long after midnight on the
first three nights of the week.
Consideration of tlie remaining
main estimates of a number of departments on Saturday involved the
discussion of a large number of
topics at more or less length.
One of the most intersting developments was a strong criticism
of the immigration department, under the present and the late government, by Mr. D. Sutherland, Conservative member for South Oxford.
Mr. Sutherland's complaint was
that Ontario is and has been neglect
ed. and that too much effort is be
ing made to send people farthei
west. During the last year, he as
serted, only 1,385 laborers had been
placed on Ontario farms by the 84
agents.
Hon. T. W. Crothers, acting minister of Uie interior, quoted figures
to prove that 122,000 immigrants
had remained in Ontario during the
year.
Mr. Sutherland said that they
did not go on co the farms. He
had no faith in the figures anyway
as many of the immigrants remained in Ontario only a few months and
then proceeded west.
Mr. W. A. Buchanan, on the eve
of the adjournment, brought up the
question of desirability of giving
farmers grazing leases for small
tracts of land when the grazing
privileges for the Blood Indian reserve, in Southern Alberta, now held
by Gordon-Ironside ci Fares, expires
on June 30. He said it would be
a great encouragement to mixed
farmers if the departments would
decide to lease this land in small
tracts.
Mr. Crothers said that the matter
was under consideration. An official
had been making a report in regard
to the matter and the policy of the
department would in all probability
be announced at an early date.
WATER SHUT OEF
Burnaby Will  Suffer From    Partial

EDMONDS, June 5.���This morning the large 24-inch water main
which supplies Burnaby with water
blew out and the whole water supply
of the municipality has had to be
turned off. The burst occurred at
Queen's avenue, Burnaby. and but
for the promptitude of the authorities in shutting off the water system

'ARMAMENT   CLOSES.
OTTAWA,   May  31.���The    entire
afternoon   and   evening   sittings   ofi
the House yesterday were taken upj
with   a   consideration   of   the   estimates of the post office department.
Prorogation  has   been     definitely
fixed for Thursday. June 5.
The general discussion of the af-:
fairs of the department was kept up
for   several   hours,   with   the   result j
that it was late in the evening be-!
fore any headway was made in vot-j
ing the money  required  to run  th'e
department during the current fiscal
year.
There were a number of refer-!
ences to the Parcels Post Bill, of|
which notice was given in April, but.
which has not been proceeded with.j
rather rough lacrosse. On the contrary the game was very clean, no
one being knocked unconscious and
on only one or two occasions was it
necessary to stop the game for a
man to he mended. Checking was
vpry close and the refpree and judge
of play did not spare the checks
when there was any appearance qt
an infringement of the rules.
As to the came itsplf. little need
be said, the first quarter was on the
whole a poor exhibition of lacrosse
end the following quarters were likewise. Speed was there to burn
���af times. But why the Salmon
B'dlies failed to get into the scores* sheet stronger shall remain a
mystery. In the first quarter everybody blamed the new grounds,
which wpre so soft that the heel of
a shoe would sink into it. There
were others who said that the twenty-foot space bPhind each goal spoiled the npw field antl in this Salmon
Bellli s will concur.
Of all things most disgusting, be
il known that it is to watch a game,
which is whirlwind in speed, your
favorite team losing, the brand of
lacrosse reminiscent of a junior
juvenile school kids' game, and to
cap all. al! the supporters of the
winning team telling you what a fine
gam*> it was .     Good Night'

BALKAN SITUATION
LONDON, June 5.���Strong
probability of new complications in peace negotiations in
the Balkans- is seen here today in a report that Roumania stands ready to join
Bulgaria in the event of
war with Servia and Greece.
Other reports also indicate
that the old cabinet resigned
because of irritation shown
over concessions to Greece
and Servia and it is freely-
predicted that the new cabinet will be more bellicose
than that headed by Premier
Gechoff. A hitch over arbitration plans also was reported today. Bulgaria wants
to submit her claim to Salonika to the Powers, but
Greece prefers fbat the triple

Apple Rate to Canada Reduced.
WENATCHEE, June 2.���New
rates on apples shipped from Wenatchee to Canadian points, copies of
which have been received from the
Great Northern Railway Company by
the transportation committee of the
Wenatchee Commercial Club, show a
reduction of 20 cents per hundred
pounds from Wenatchee to Edmonton and a corresponding reduction
to Calgary and Lethbridge. The
rates a: :he present time from Wenatchee to Sweetgrass, Mont., junction point, with the Canadian Pacific,
is 65 cents per hundred pounds. This
added to the new rates quoted by the
Canadian Pacillc. would put Wenatchee apples in carload lots into Lethbridge for 70 cents per hundred
pounds, into Calgary for 87 cents
nnd into Edmonton for 97 cents per
hundred pounds. The rate last year
to Edmonton was $1,17 per hundred
and it will be noted that a very liberal reduction has been made. Shippers in the Wenatchee valley nave
been handicapped for a long time in
securing reasonable rales to Canadian points, but wilh these rates and
the reduction in rates secured some
time ago 'o the same points for
peachi.- and other Bummer fruits,
local growers are in a strong position to compete for this desirable
business.
Extend  Block  System.
EVERETT, June 2.���A fortune of
$00,000 is soon to be spent by the
Great Northern Railway Company on
the Hne to Bellingham in promoting
the efficiency of its policy to give
the traveling public a maximum
amount of safety. The money has
been voted by directors to install the
electric staff block system, said to be
the final word in guarding against
collisions between trains. The electrical staff block is precisely the
same system now installed between
Everett and Seattle. Thp highest
degree of safety is claimed for the |
appliance; indeed. Great Northern
men assert that accidents caused by
collisions are impossible when the
system is used. There are various
block points between Eterett and
Seattle, and when an engineer is
using one block the block ahead is
automatically locked, as is the
block behind, and cannot be entered by another train until the first
train has left the territory and automatically opened the blocks. With
the new appropriation the safety improvement is to be extended from
Pacific avenue to Everett junction,
from the junction to draw bridge
No. 10, from that point to^Iarysville
and on to Bellingham. The same
electric staff block system is in use
from Skykomish across the Cascade
mountains, further protected by telephone stations, ar.d the company's
officers in this city hope to be able
to procure the same installation
from Everett to Skykomish.
Huge Slims Owed S{ate.
OLYMPIA, June 5.���About a
dozen Lake Washington and Lake
Union shore land owners under preference right appeared before the
state land board yesterday to show
why the second class lands so held,
but on which they have not paid
either principal or interest, should
not revert to the state and be placed
on sale, according to the action of the
board a month ago, when this date
was named for such hearing. The
lands in question total about $2 70.-
000 in value, including interest on
the principal due. Of this $204,000
is on Lake Washington and JGti.OOO
on Lake Union. The McGllvra inter
ests alone are shown to owe a total
of $155,738, with interest of $48,000
additional. If these lards are reclaimed by the staite, or the paymenls
of these amounts enforced, it will be

Wednesday, June -l.
In reporting to the executive committee of the Progressive Association on the Buy Home Products exposition held Friday, Saturday and
.Monday, Acting Secretary Darling in
suggesting votes of thanks to tbe
judges, the newspapers and to Mr,
Riishlcigh, secretary of the Businessmen's Association, says:
"l believe that the New Westminster Progressive Association has
cause tor congratulation on the
splendid success which this campaign has met with. The past ten
dnys has been a period of hard work
on the part of the committees nominated at the joint meeting of the
New Westminster Business Men's
Association and the New Westminster Progressive Association and 1
am of the opinion that our success
has been in a great measure due to
the hearty co-operation and support
of the latter body. I have pleasure
in drawing the attention of this executive to the bard and efficient work
performed by the secretary. Mr.
Rashleigh. who has rendered every
assistance in his power to make the
campaign a memorable one. It
now remains with this Association
r.nd the Business Men's Association
to see that the work accomplished Is
sustained by further activities.
"To be effective it ls necessary
that continuing efforts along these
lines be maintained and to that end
it Is proposed next month to have
a street parade. This matter, however, would be somewhat premature
to enlarge upon.
"There were altogether over fifty
window  displays  of  home products.
Unfortunately only forty-one of these
could   be  considered  by the  judges.
Several of the flsh display-* were necessarily   withdrawn   from   the  windows before the judging on Monday.
j Others were eliminated by reason of
I foreign   products   having  been   per-
I mitted  to enter    Into    the    exhibit.
I Fifty exhibits ln a city of this size
Ib a most gratifying and satisfactory
showing and in addition to the results achieved as far as the public
are concerned, I believe that our
efforts have gone a long way towards
the further enlistment of the retail
merchants of this city In the alms
and efforts of this association and
this co-operative effort Is tbe great
object for which we have been wailing for for thp past year."

Next Week Will See Another Industry in Operation in the Steveston  District.
STEVESTON, June 2.���A new industry will be under way bere nexl
week In tbe B. C. Press Brick Yard.
which will have a trial run of Itf
machinery preparatory to steady operation. Messrs. D. R. and .1. Pa
terson, of Glasgow, Scotland, where
they have bad extensive experience
in brickmaking, will have control ol
the local yard. Mr. D. King will be
the engineer in charge.
The B. C. Press Brick Yard ha��
been closed since 1908, when it was
tied up through litigation.
The process used at the local yard
varies from that employed in making ordinary clay brick. *_and from
the river is utilized, which is thoroughly dried before being mixed
with ground lime. The bricks are
placed through a Kommlck system
presser after they are molded, am'
are subjected to a pressure of one
hundred and twenty-tons. In steam
retorts they remain for ten hours-
emerging tbererrom in the shape ol
limestone. Sand taken from MM
river one day may be used in bulia-
ing the next .

As they neared the wire both Aboyuer and Louvois crept up, and as
the three leaders flashed across the
finish line Craganour was a scant
length ahead of Aboyuer and Louvois' nose strained at Aboyuer s
neck.
G. Aumont's Nimbus, in to 1, and
W. Hall Walker's Great Sport, 20 to

During the fall term of 1911, the
average daily attendance in the city
schools was liifil pupils while during
the fall term of 1912 the average

This shows an Increase in the average daily attendance of 184 pupils.
During the spring term of 1912 the
average daily attendance was 1606
pupils while this year thus far tbe
average daily attendance has been
1 '��� 11 pupils, thus making an increase in the school population of

CHANCELLOR CANCELS TOUR.
LONDON, June 4.���Because he
will be "too busy at the time," Chancellor David Lloyd George has cancelled bis proposed tour in September, during which he had been planning to make twelve speeches in the
United States and Canada.
In an article on "Co-operative Marketing of Farm Produce" in the
' Canadian Farm," Mr. G. E. O'Brien,
of Macdonald College, Quebec, thuB
describes the advantages of co-opera-
tile fruit and potato marketing.
Advantage*, for Fruit Growers.
1. Large stocks will be controlled
by sellers who will act as a unit.
2. Uniform packing, grading and
marking  will  be practised.
3. A reputation for the community established.
4. The cost of picking, packing
and marketing will be reduced.
5. Fruit will be picked and packed at the proper time.
6. Standard varieties will tie
grown.
7. Strong facilities will be better
provided for.
8. Tbe placing of the purely commercial part of the industry in tbe
hands of competent men.
9. Spraying by power outfit.
10. The poorer growers will raise
their standard to that of the gooa
growers.
11. Direct selling at the point 01
production.
Advantages   to   Potato   Grower.
1. It brings the producer and
consumer in Canada and the West
Indies more closely together.
2. That a potato growing p;ov-
nce,   such   as   New   Brunswick   car.
eventually control the West India potato market and a large section ol
Eastern Canada as well.
3. Transportation facilities will
be greatly helped, in that a larger
space can be contracted for on West
Indian steamers.
4. Profits to the potato grower
would be increased from 25 to 50
per cent.

"1 See by the
Papers "
Did you ever stop to think of the deep significance oi thc above oft-repeated colloquialism ?
It is estimated that more than 95 per cent, of
the population of the Canada that --n read
are newspaper readers.
The quotation, or rather the universal repetition, of the same thought signifies to what a
tremendous extent the public depends upon the
press for its ideas and daily information.
Not so very long ago "I see by the papers''
referred nearly always to some news happening,
but today the expression is just as likely to indicate store news ��� advertising news; the arrival
of some choice merchandis;, some change in
style, a new idea in apparel, or any one of a
hundred interesting and constandy changing
bits of information which crowd the pages of
reliable weekly papers like The Delta Times.
There is, indeed, much worth while that one
may "see by the papers" if he will but study
the advertising pages.

old and tried civil servant, one of
the efficient veteran road builders
of the province���Mr. John Sprott,
Who lately retired from the position
of Road Superintendent of Delta, a
position he had held with houor for
many years���so happily expressed at
the complimentary dinner given to
this esteemed gentleman by his associates in the public service, at the
Rusrell hotel on Monday evening, a
brief sceount of which has already
appeared in The British Columbian,
is worthy of a more extended notice
Sir Richard is never so happy as when
he meets old friends and associates,
and with a sincerity born of his warm
hearted nature he loves to acknowledge tlio value of their services in
promoting the public welfare. So if
was on ibis occasion. The gathering
of so many friends, whose work for
the province in various capacities be
had learned to appreciate, led the
first minister to recall many happy
associations and many incidents so
very closely connected with the development of the Lower Fraser Valley. He was tempted, he said, to
digress and speak of tlic good old
days that have gone by in this section of llritish Columbia. But he
must content himself with an expression of gratitude tbat he was enabled
once more to come.amongst the people with whom he had spent the
early days of his life. He was
pleased, he added, to see so many
nf bis old friends in the enjoyment
of good health and to know that so
many had prospered and seemed satisfied with the future and had now
every incentive to go forward and
press on the exploitation and development of this valuable section of
British Columbia which nature so
fully justifies tbat they should do.
Then passing on to an appreciation of the guest of the evening, Mr.
John Sprott, Sir Richard said in
part:
I am glad indeed that we have
him (Mr. Sprott) here with us this
evening, and 1 am delighted to see
him in such good health (hear, hear)
and I think I speak for the whole
company when I say we trust lhat,
he may he spared to be amongst us
for many, mijny years (applause).
As a resident of the city of New
Westminster he is held in the highest esteem by the people in this town;
and wlial I say with regard to this
city applies with equal force all over
tbe district and all over the province
of British Columbia where be is
known, By his honesty and integrity, and the courage shown in the
exercise of his daily vocation, ho occupies a high place In the esteem
of the people of the province of British Columbia. Mr. Sprott for many
years has been one of the civil service of British Columbia, which is
second to none the Empire over, and
It has been my good fortu/e to have
ft good deal to do with the people
���who work in the civil service of lhe
country, and wherever it bas lieen
possible through any generosity of
the government of British Columbia
to advance the status of the service
in British Columbia, I have not hesitated to move; and in this direction
I have always had the strongesl possible concurrence from my colleagues,
and I hold today that British Columbia can have no stronger asset than
a clean and efficienl service. The
time Is faal approaching when many
Of our young men and young women,
looking about for a life's work, will
feel ambitious in trying to secure a
plaee in th- civil service ol' tho country, so thai they may take a substantial pari in ihe up-bulldlng or
Ili.-- Majesty's Empire. I often felt
ii' 'I lys gone by when there was ne
fixed ordi r thai there was nol thai
appreciation of the work ol the civil
Bervice, which it deserved. It seems
to me that In these times from ���������
peril - - e n ha* - li arned to know the
situation better, and lhat we have
come to a righl appreciation of what
the service of tho Province means In
the maintenance of good government,
and in that I Include efficienl ex-
pendll ure of public money.
Now to have one of His Majesty's
most loyal civil servants, who has
been lately relieved from somel lines
arduous and responsible duties, present, is a very great pleasure indeed.
I am satisfied thai If .Mr. Napier,
the chairman, could bul detail the
bis tor j here and there of some or
thi se trails, built in this province
bj Mr. Sprott, ii would have been
Intertwined with the early life of this
section or the prolvnce, and now in
tha li - ���- di ���- ��� ol the , -i vl .. '��� m
the exchi quer could hardlj al ford
to supply the money required, Mr
Sprott was obliged to go along with
B few dollars in order to keep the
disl ricts opi n.    in these later times,
With   the  development  of motor  ! r -1
fie, and all of the ex:ra care an 1
expenditure that it has necessitated,
we have found this old veteran Mill
to the fore and we have found Mint
the work of Mr, Sprotl would favorably compare with that or perhaps
the most finished and experienced
modern road makers. I could take
you over n les ol road in the Fii i
Valli j - id ay that Mr. Sprotl built
years ago. which In these strenuous
times will withstand tbe heavy strain
put upon them. Where John Sprotl
bullded, lie bullded well.
li-a grateful l am to this in
pany to be present; how pleased I
am to join in this tribute or thanks
lo one of my most a lonate friend i
and let me wish one and all of yo i
a long and happy life; and may his
days be full and long, and crowned
with peaci and contentment, and
evi rything that flesh may be hell to.
I am Instructed to present to Mr.
Sprott. as a -in rrom his old colleagues, tbls handsome arm chair.
I- si ems to me thai he will enj ��y
many evenings of comfort with th ���
o!.l  pipe in that good old chair.

Bishop du Pencier Makes Pixiiioiini <���-
ment on    Subject of    Church
Unity   Pi-ii-Misals.
VANCOUVER, June 5.���Proposals
for church unity as outlined in a
circular letter sent to all the clergy
of the Church of England in Canada were referred to by Bishop A. U,
de Poncier al the synod of the diocese of New Westminster, held in St.
Paul's church hall yesterday.
The circular letter, he said, had
occasioned much newspaper controversy and some considerable misunderstanding.
Tbe sin of division in the body
of Christ bad been recognized with
ever-Increasing deflniteness during
'.be !.-: half-century, The world
had now become a neighborhood,
and there had come a desire for
more united action in the great work
of Christianizing the world. This
desire for unity in mission work
among Christian nations had reacted on the church in the home
laud, and hnd prompted some definite action which would make for
the unity of Christendom. But this
unity, however        commendable,
could not, in his opinion. -<e brought
about by the methods suggested, as
they were not In accordance with the
true conceptions of the office and
work of the sacred ministry.
The church had nevor defined
what was necessary to qualify a man
for acting as a minister of Christ,
but the practical question tlie church
had decided unswervingly. No man
was admitted to tbe ministry in the
Church of England who bad not been
ordained in due form by the Bishop.
"This," said the Bishop, "is tbe
form of doctrine you and I received
from the learned and godly teachers
of the church of our fathers. This
conception of the Christian ministry
I find has been held always through
all tbe centuries of the continuous
life of the church and this Is the
faith of the greater portion of the
Church Catholic today. This that
I have received I firmly believe. I
cannot therefore join in any effort
the end of which is declared to be
subversive of this belief in the episcopal office."
On this subject a memorial was
referred to the committee to report
this morning. This memorial, in
part, reads as follows:
"Whereas certain licensed clergy
of the Church of England in Canada have recently circulated 'An appeal on behalf of Christian Unity,'
in which the desire is expressed to
promote in the Synods of the
church such legislation as shall give
effect to the following proposals:
"(a) To admit ministers of the
various religious bodies under certain restrictions and by rightful authority' to the pulpits of our
churches;
"(b) To permit members of
other communions, being members in
good standing in their Communion,
on occasion, and with consent of the
Ordinary, to communicate in our
churches,    '
"Therefore, believing that, the
aforesaid contemplated legislation
would tamper with matters of doctrine and discipline which have the
authority of the Sacred Scriptures,
and have come down to us from the
Apostles' times, inasmuch as with
regard to proposal (a), the fact of
the Divinely-appointed ministry of
tbe church is ignored, and with regard to proposal (b), the doctrine
of the layine on of hands for the
gift of the Holy Ghost, and tlie,
church's order, is set aside, this
Synod respectfully memoralizes the
General Synod of the Church in
Canada to permit no such change,
ns would be necessary to accord with
the above proposals, to he Introduced Into the Canadian edition of the
Book of Common Prayer."

Mayor Roe of Port Momly Denounces
Circulation of Erroneous Statements Regarding City.
POUT MOODY, June B���Speaking
in no uncertain terms Mayor P. 1).
Roe, at a city council meeting,
voiced the opinion of the city council in an emphatic denunciation of
certain reports now being circulated
in Vancouver regarding the numerous railroads and industries which
aro reported as coming to this city,
also the erroneous statements re the
financial condition of the city,
"For the past two weeks." stated
ins worship, "I bave spent almost
halt ol' ray time In answering telephone calls and denying these rumors, which would lead the reader
to suppose thai industries and railroads were 'tumbling over ili.iin-
selves,' so to speak, in their frantic
efforts to locate here; also we are
reported, presumably on the word
of a local alderman, whom 1 am
curtain does not exist, to have a
substantial amount ln the city treasury -.- hen th ire Is really not enough
for  ordinary  fixed  charges."
"As to the report that the city is
about to install a water and sewer-
ago system this year. I must say we
have absolutely no Intention of doing so at present, i feel    satisfied
thai all Citizens interested in the
welfare of the city are opposed to
any fictitious boom which would do
more harm than good and the reports can only emanate from unscrupulous really dealers, who are
deliberately misrepresenting the
facta, and we aa a city council should
lie very char in announcing to the
general public that we do uot sanction or approve of such misleading
.statements.
