The much looked for car line,

plains of the Delta from east, to west,
(palling Its lull development possible.

Westminster by way of the big bridge
across the Eraser, at the lntter city.
The assurance was given by a prominent official ejf the railway company In toucli with all Us workings
ami plans. It Is deduced that It will
be two years yet before the Une will
be in operation. In the meantime
many Ladner people have expressed
the thought that the railway eo**-
pany, it' it so desired, might assist
the residents of Delta by running a
through car at rcgutur times from
Steveston to New -West minster over
the new Kbunte branch when K goes.

For weeks farmers have awaited
for Just such a rain as has fallen this
week, and now they are wearing that
cheerful smile that makes the stranger feel that here is the homo of happiness, the smilo that conns from
pleasant dreams of prosperity. Of
course Delta farmers always wear 41
pleasant smile, for the rich alluviul
soil of this favored district does not
permit of a crop failure or anything
evenly remotely approaching such a
catastrophe,, but there havo been periods when a delay In the arrival of
the ''gentle dew from Heaven" has
made> them tjnxlnus and feHiv-ful at a
iate harvest and slim yield. The
rati> this week dispelled all such
doubts. It caught the oat crop just
at the right time and the green
blades are springing lifco magic from
the black soli, giving promise of nh
unequalled crop. Wheat Is neit so far
advanced, missing the moisture more
than the onts. but still the growth has
not been retarded and the refreshing

Georgia, there springs Into being a
city, Its Inflated population flooding its
streets and Its thousands of boats
transforming waters at the Fraser
from a quiet stream Into a scene of
greut activity. For this transformation, surprising even to the resident of
the coast, the much prized "sockeye,"
smallest of the salmon of the Pacific,
Is responsible. For three years In
each quartette Steveston is content
to slumber, while Its residents make
a comfortable living by Ashing for
the various klinls of salmon. Four

Labor Hearer.
The big year has never failed and
none of the cannery men anticipate
any trouble in lining all their cans.
The one great problem this season iu
that of labor. The white man has
practically vacated the field in favor
of the Asiatic, who will work for
lower wages and elo the work nearly
ai well. Hut now even the Asiatic Is
becoming scarce and the dinners ure
forced to employ Indluns and Asiatic
women. Hindus, too, ure appearing In
the: cannery work in greater numbers
thun hitherto uml ure proving capable workmen in this line. It is expected here that providing tho run
is up to the standard of other years,
upwards of l.uiio.vuu cases will bo
pueked on the Fruser this season. A
dyke has been thrown up along the
waterfront recently leaving a 20-fe.ot
ditch between the houses of the flsh-

A supply of pure spring water is
practically nssureel the people of Delta, its accomplishment being a matter of time only. Certain formalities
have to bt compiled with before the
contract for the work can be let, and
these will occupy about three' months,
then the- const ruction will be rushed
with all available speed. Reeve H.
J Hutcherson, who is also chairman
of the water committee, stales that
he believes that by April eif next year
there will be an abundance of the

The water will b.i brought from
springs in the hills at Bast Delta
about nine miles from town, and tho
plan before the council is to convey
the wuter in a twelve inch main, supplying Ladner and the farms on the
low land, the higher lands being al- j
ready abundantly supplied. The

MONEY  FOR   INDIANS.
I" the Pacific province. Tho clearing
of the land as in Ontario or the mere
breaking of the sod ns in the middle
\iesi is an experience that could not
be r- rented In British Columbia, The
f.snt timber on the coast and along
th/' inland waterways represents so
niilth value that In the best areas
ngr'i-i Iture must wait on its removal.
To clear the laud in advance, of tho
profitable handling of the timber
tumid be a sacrifice of wealth that
would be unpardonable. The agricultural development of recent years
has been exceptionally rapid, und
pronilsa8 still more Important results
In tho near future, The province is
so vast that in spite of its many
mountain ranges and the large areus
that must remain for years under
timber there Is In the aggregate an
areu of farm land capable of making
a material contribution to the food
Supply of the empire. The provincial
government, naturally absorbed In
the past in promoting mineral development Mini looking after the
wealth In the fuivsts and flsjierles, is
now devoting more attention to agriculture. There are this year 21 surveying parties in Ihe llehi locating ng-
rlculturul land and making it available for settlement. The regions
which hnve not attracted mining
prospectors have heretofore remaln-
i.l practically unknown, but by the
activity of the government their agricultural possibilities hnve been ells-
closed. The department of agriculture Is also active along the lines
more familiar In Ihe eastern provinces, nnd agricultural societies,
farmers' institutes, and similar or-
gai.lsatlons are being liberally tilde-d.

have been of committees. The hall
whs crowded by a multitude of ladles.
Lady Edgar, president of Ihe Canadian council, was in tho chair. Her
Excellency Lady Grey said that Canada counted It no small honor to be
able to entrriam them. It was hoped
that they would toko with them
happy remembrances of this beautiful land, and of the many friends that
they would make. Lady Aberdeen
said when at the last quinqulnlal it
was suggested that, they should hold

many who were of the opinion that

THE;-WATER SUS'PLX
It will be;. welcome information,
:iot only to thee residents of Ladner
but of Delta generally, tint the
municipal council has practically
decided to proceed with .the installation of a water supply system for
the municipality. The shortage ol
an adequate supply of good drinking water both in town.and through
the lowlands . at the municipality
where springs are non-existent, has
been keenly felt, and, in, addition
has afforded material for,the use of
tbe "knocker." Credit is due tie.
council fer trie progressive stand it
hflS taken in :his matter, and when
the bylaw authorizing the raising of
ihe necessary funds for it a.carrying
out the project comes before that
body to-day for approval, we believe that no obstacle will hi permitted to retard the hastening forward of the i reliminaries. Tbe
undertaking is a large one, but
made necessary by the conditions
which it is intended to remedy���
conditions winch. become, more
serious with the arrival cf.each succeeding diy season ; and though
expensive the expenditure is amply
justified. That an, abundant supply
of pure water can be obtained at all
is a matter for congratulation, and
the residents of Ladner may well
look forward with longing to the
day when the turning of a valve-
will send the crystal fluid flowing to
their hotrjas,
