At the coroner's Inquest held on
Friday of last week to Inquire into
the cause of the death of William
Stevenson, the fisherman who was
drowned In the slip behind the public wharf at Ladner, the evidence
given by the dtead man's companion,
Frederick Webb, was so unsatisfactory that Coroner King had the man
apprehended on the charge of perjury.
With the evident Intention of having the authorities hand over to him
the gasoline fishing boat in which
the two had come to Ladner, Webb
stated to the jury that he had met
Stevenson at Steveston some weeks
ago; that Stevenson . was without
money and that he (Wehb) having
sold a boat and nets for $150.00, let
the man he had picked up with have
some cash, and later entered into
an arrangement to fish with him in
partnership. Then, he said, he went
tp Vancouver and bought the boat
in which they had come to Ladner,
at the same time lending his partner
Papers and a bank book found on
the dead man indicated that these
statements were absolutely untrue,
and further inqui.-y in Vancouver
and Steveston corroborated this indication.
Investigation proves that Stevenson purchased the boat from East-
hope Bros., Vancouver, paying fhe
firm $300.00. Later he bought a
net for $30.00 in Steveston, and purchased a few dollars' worth of provisions. He had just before purchasing the boat drawn from a bank
in Vancouver $340, and this is accounted for by the known expenditures and a balance found on his
The  men  came  across  to  Ladner
Thursday evening, arriving at about
seven o'clock, and tying up the boat
in the slip.    They were in the Delta
ibar drinking with others for a short
I time,  and  left  for  the  boat a  few
minutes before eight.    Shortly after
this,  Mr. Harry Teller,  manager cf
| the Point  Roberts  cannery,  arrived
on the wharf in his automobile, aud
heard cries for help.    He immediately  ran  down to the  slip  and  found
.Webb  hanging  to   the   edge  of  the
j float.    After pulling him out hs was
'told  by  Webb  that  his  partner  was
in the water, and at once an alarm
I was given  and  a  fruitless  endeavor
'was  made  to  find Stevenson.       His
I body   was   recovered   by    Constable
Morgan several hours later.
I     Webb's siory is that the two wont
together  to  the  boat  and   found   it
lying out  at  the  full   length  of  the
tie   line.       He   says   that   Stevenson
pulled  the  boat  up  to  the  slip and
]that    he    got    a    plank   which   was
placed   from   the   slip   to   the   boat;
that   they   were  going  over   tliis  together  when  it  tipped  off  and  they
were thrown into the water.
Before Magistrate McKee, Webb
pleaded' not guilty to the charge of
perjury and was committed for trial.
He was taken over to New Westminster, and will appear in the tall assizes.
The fishing boat is still lying in
the slip, .but will be taken charge- of
by the public administrator.
Board of Trade  Will  Probably Protest Against. Proposed Change
in G.N. Train Service.
The regular meeting of the Delta
Board of Trade on Monday evening,
which It was expected would be
given over to general discussion of
matters of interest to the district,
turned into one of some Importance
when Mr. A. D. Paterson brought up
the matter of the establishment by
the Great Northern Railway, under
orders from the railway commission,
of a daily passenger service over the
line between Port Guichon and New
Westminster  andi Vancouver.
Mr. Paterson Informed the meeting that he had been advised that
the new schedule, while giving the
district a passenger train each way
daily, would cut down the existing
daily freight service to three freight
trains a week. He also stated that
while a two and one-half hour passenger service to Vancouver was ordered, the run could not possibly be
made in that time, as there were
thirty-one stops, andi these would
overage four minutes each, a total
of two hours andtfour minutes, leaving but twenty-six minutes for actual
In discussion it was also contended that the railway would much better serve the Delta if the present
service were maintained with addition of a Sunday train which would
care for the milk transportation, a
seven-day service being an absolute
necessity to dairymen who wish to
reach the New Westminster and Vancouver markets with fresh milk.
It was finally decided to hold a
special meeting of the board! Friday
evening to take up the matter, Mr.
Paterson undertaking to procure a
copy of the proposed schedule.
The question of the possibility of
having Ladner made a port of entry
for cattle was also brought up.
Under existing regulations it Is necessary for the importer to have his
stock examined at one of the nearest
entry ports, that is New Westmiuster
or White Rock, and this, besides being convenient, is rather expensive,
on account of retention at these
points and the maintenance of cattle
during the detention. The secretary
was Instructed to communicate with
I Veterinary Inspector Dr. Tolmle, at
[Victoria, for direction as to how to
[proceed in an endeavor to procure
the desiredi change.
President D. A. McKee occupied
the chair of the meeting aud there
was a good attendance of members,

Jn Fraser Valloy Is Opinion of Mr.
John    Walsh    Who    Has
STEVESTON, Lulu Island, Aug
.3)0.���In these days when, through
the ruinous competition of the Chinese, white market gardeners in Brit-
sh Columbia are slender in number,
t is refreshing to converse with Mr.
John Walsh, of Steveston, and to
tee in practical and profitable operation his market gardening methods.
The experience is cheering in more
respects than one, for Mr, Walsh,
who liar farmi .1 in practically every
state west of th'e Mississippi, declai w
after four years residence in sieves-
ton that there is a splendid future
ahead of the market gardener on
the Lower Mainland of llritish Columbia. Tho prediction is not con
dltiona", though Mr. Walsh is a
hearty advocate of Oriental exclusion, which he says is bound to conic
Banner  or  later.
Sights to be seen in Mr. Walsh's
gardens are eye-openers. On one
two-acre plot, (or instance, he is
growing with the aid of an irrigation
plant the only head lettuce which is
now being marketed in Vancouver.
In another garden he has iceberg
lettuce started under muslin���lettuce
which will be ready for sale late In
September and throughout October,
fho muslin covering protecting it
ironi the early frosts. This, also,
will enter the Vancouver market
with absolutely no competition either
local or American.
In still another garden, situated
near the B.C. Electric line, Mr.
Walsh is carrying out a series of
experiments with cabbage. Side by
side, with three feet between rows,
with four foot spaces for checks, he
has thirty rows of cabbage, each row
containing an equal amount of Danish Round Head and Danish Ball
Head cabbage, grown from seed imported from Hol.and. One plat of
ten rows is upon soil fed With f
complete fertilizer, a second has no
fertilization at all, while the third
is upon land fed with fertilizer containing no potash.
While there is a distinguishable
difference between the three cabbage
plats, the variation is not so great
as would be expected, due to the
extreme fertility of the soil, which
is very rich in nitrogen. Mr. Walsh
states that over-fertilization is to be
guarded against in cabbage culture,
as it leads to large cabbages which
are not so salable tis the smaller
tin-id'-*. Thus .i local cabbage grower
farming five acres near "'teveston has
placed no fertilizer whatever on his
land this year, and the field of cabbage is as pretty a sight as could
be Imagined.
"What are trie profits in Lulu Island cabbage?" was a query put to
Mr.   Walsh.
This Steveston market gardener
believes that a gardener should be
as expert in arithmetic as in soil
culture, and he can tell accurately
the cost of growing and marketing
any vegetable which he handles.
"Last year," was his answer, "I
go* "MS a ton on an average. Ten
per cent., or $ 1.80 went to the commission firm, The freight from
St, veston to Vancouver was $2, and
7.r, cents went for cartage. Crates
cost L'7 cents apiece, There were
nine to the ton, which made an item
of   $2.43."
These costs were on the marketing
side. On the growing side, the problem of arriving at accurate figures
was more difficult. Figuring on
twenty tons to the acre, which Mr.
WalBh stated he averaged last year,
the following expenses were to bi
offset: Plowing land, $30; rent, $2.r,;
teaming, $15: labor, $20; and seed,
$1���a total of $01. It will be seen
thai though the per acre profit was
nol  Immi use, it  w .-��� a good one.
The principal obstacle in the way
oi successful cabbage culture, as i!
is to a greater extent in the way of
cauliflower (trowing, is the root mag.
got. This destructive pest In other
sections disappears about the first
of July, hut in the Eraser Valley
Stays on throughout the summer.
���If the profit in fall cabbage is
n living one. so "Ir. Walsh figures,
it is much better In spring cabbage
which sella for about three times ac
much, and so, with two or threi
oiht r highly profitable vegetables
In will concentrate his energies on
Bpring cabbage in the future. It
sells in Brilish Columbia in the late
spring for $.".�� ;i ton and though the
acreage yield Is considerably lowei
than that of the ordinary cabbage,
the expense saved in handling,
coupled with the higher price, makes
ij a very satisfying product to tin-
expert  n:rtrl;et  gardener.

.->rr cabbage is one of the high
l-f profitable crops in llritish Colum-
���������.s, but it requires an expert to grow
it properlv, and that it why the competition of the Chinese is eliminated.
The other crops in which Mr. Walsh
specializes,   or   Intends   to  specialize
are  all   ones   requiring  expert   skill.
Jn head lettuce he has found a verit
able  sold  mine.    At this season  of
the year none at all is imported from
the American side, and very little
because of the absence of moisture,
is grown locally. The Chinese do
not grow it.
Mr. Walsh has devised a simple
method of irrigation, and Is busily
reaping the profits. The district
around Steveston is covered by a network of drainage ditches which are
daily filled by the tides. Ditches 0!
this nature pass Mr. Walsh's gardens. He has purchased, at an outlay of $250, a 31/. b.p. gasoline engine which is able to pump water at
the rate of 200 gallons a minute.
The Irrigation outfit for bis head
lettuce fields is completed by a supply of pipe, purchased at small cost
from the canneries, and a canvas
hose. A man with this outfit can
feed with water an acre of head lettuce and celery a day.
Under certain circumstances an
irrigation outfit of this sort would
be prohibitive in cost, but in intensive market gardening  it  is not.
What are the potential profits in
head  lettuce culture?
Last week, Mr. Walsh marketed
7li crates, each containing two dozen
heads. He was paid at the rate of
60 cents a dozen, or five cents a
head. This will he a low average
price for the season.
The lettuce plants are set a foot
part, nine to the square yard, and
an acre will accommodate approximately 40,000 plants. 40,000 at 5
cents is $2,000. Twice $2,000���for
two crops are grown each year���Is
This is the maximum gross income possible from an acre devoted
to head lettuce. Naturally it is very
seldom attained. But that it is possible is a good Indication that the
vegetable is one worth studying. Mr.
Walsh considers that it is one of
the most profitable which can bf
grown locally. He says that a person knowing how to grow it well
can sell it at fine figures even when
the market is flooded with the imported article, as it is In the early
summer. He tells of an interesting
incident to illustrate this. "One
time last year," he said, "I went to
one of the larger groceries in Vancouver and offered to supply it with
Al head lettuce at seventy-five cents
a dozen. They eyed me with astonishment. They said they were getting imported head lettuce for fifteen cents a dozen, and were finding
it difficult to sell at any figure.
Finally, I agreed to send them a
crate, and not to trouble about the
price if they could not sell it at tei
cents a head. They were skeptical,
but agreed to give it a trial."
Mr.   Walsh  laughed  as  he  told  of
the   sequel.    "After   that   they  took
all  I   weuld  ship them at,  75  cents
a   dozen,   and   begged   for   more,   h
in order to have head lettuce ";;���
market as late in the fall as possible,
Mr. Walsh brings into use muslin
coverings placed over wooden frames
twelve feet wide, having an elevation
of about a foot. It should be stated
that these frames and coverings
serve more than one purpose, for
they are used to protect the young
cauliflower from the fly which lays
the eggs from which the maggot
emanates. A covering which has
served as a protection for the cauliflower is transferred to a frame at a
later date in which late 'ettuce is
sown. This covering will protect the
plants from the early frosts, and
make growth possible until early November.
The third vegetable which is a
specialty in the Walsh gardens is
celery. Through a faulty labor sup-
pi} at the crucial point in :he setting season, he has about fifty thousand plants now, whereas he had
planned for one hundred thousand.
The stalks will sell for eighty cents
a dozen up throughout the winter
To a rational extent Mr. Walsh
practices intercropping. Late celerv
fer example is a companion crop oil
one plat to his head lettuce. When
the latter is removed the.e will be
plenty of room for the celery to mature, On another plat lata celery
has followed a crop of radishes anil
a crop of lettuce. The land will
have produced three profitable crop?
In one season.
Quality specialization in this man's
opinion is the only weapon the white
man has against the Chinese gardeners. Mr. Walsh does not grow beets,
carrots, turnips, or kindred yege'a-
bles, Tor the reason that no particular skill is required and the competition with the Chinese is such that
they would not be very profitable.
He grows, besides radishes, lettuce.
cabbage and celery, a few cucumbers
and realizes a fair profit from these
through intelligent grading. With
quality and expertness he says that
the   Chinese  cannot  compete.
He is. however, an earnest supporter of total exclusion. N.u until
the Chinese and Japanese are barred
from the country, or prevented from
growing market produce, will the
white market gardener come into his
own In British Columbia. Mr. Walsh
has aw inspiring faith In tlie Fra^r
Valley's future. It has the (Innate,
hu says; it has the soil conditions;
and it will ultimately have a great
market on the prairies as well as
along  the  coast.
Speak of commission men, and no
light of hatred gleams in Walsh's
eyes. He htirleth not maledictions
upon their heads. The fact is. he
loes much of his marketing through
���hem, and secures gpneral satisfaction. He is not afraid of them
knowing that if they are unfair he
can arrange to market all his output
through the groceries. Perhaps���
although Mr. Walsh does not hint
it this���they are aware of this, also,
and govern themselves accordingly.
For thirteen years in Denver, Colorado, Mr. Walsh sold produce froir
house to house, and Is an expert in
marketing vegetables as he is in
growing them.
It Is generally considered that a
direct journey from grower to grocer
is very profitable to the grower, but
the profit, so this Steveston gardener
states, is not so great as it generally
[supposed. The expense in transportation Is much greater. Either the
Igrower cannot ship in hulk, or he
{is obliged to consign a large shlp-
'ment to a transfer company and pay
{at the rate of $1.25 an hour for
delivery to several groceries. To
high class groceries Mr. Walsh at
(present sells the very best grade of
'lettuce and celery; the remainder he
Icrates and consigns to a commission
A few other details in connection
with Mr. Walsh's gardens at Steveston are of interest. He is working
this year seven acres, paying for the
same" from $15 to $25 an acre. He
uses both horse manure and the
chemicals for fertilizers, the first as
a fertilizer giving up its plant food
gradually, and the latter, principally
in the spring, as a stimulant to st'.rt
the vegetables before the manure is
at work. The cheapest fertilizing
agent is easily, besides much other
plant food, horse manure, and
costs per ton, in which there are ten
pounds of nitrogen, one dollar.
A pound of nitrogen bought of a
chemical works costs twenty-five
cents, which is fifteen cents higher
than when purchased in horse manure. Horse manure is a very economical fertilizer, and Mr. Walsh uses
huge quantities of it. Delivered at
Steveston phosphoric acid costs $63
a ton and potash $35 a ton.
The labor supply Mr. Walsh has
found somewhat unsatisfactory, and
this year he  has suffered  consider

organization, which !s not, as the
public has been lead to believe, a
twin partnership, a coalition between
two great railroad builders, not a
double arrangement, but triple! And
the weakest of the three--if there
is any weakest���is not Zebulon Lash.
On the surface, of course, 7. A.
Lash is only a lawyer. He is known
as the senior partner in Messrs,
Blake, Lash, Anglin & Cassels, of
the Bank nf Commerce Building, Toronto. But although the law was
the career that Lash as a young man
chose,   he   was   not   the   sort   to   be
sity of Toronto���another of his positions���a man who combines with
him knowledge of finance and law
a passion for the fullest enlightenment to the greatest possible number. Opponents in law or business
have heen surprised to find "him not
inexorable, but almost quixotic In
his passion for fair play to both
sides! In parts of Canada his name
is regarded as synonymous with
vested rights, protected interests and
predatory wealth. Z. A. Lash is not
an oppressor, nor a capitalist in tho
sense the socialists use the word.
He believes in vested rights and protection   as  necessary   to   the   nation.
���content to stop at merely being in this he may be wrong, but
senior partner in a big firm. From ,^-u has ever been able to accuse
his birthplace, in St. Johns, New- z. A. Lash of being insincere. He
foundland, where he was born ln believes in what he does.
1846, fate brought him to -Dundas,
Ont.,, for a grammar school education. Love of learning took him
then to the University of Toronto,
and hard work led him to a barrister's gown at the age of twenty-
two, when he was called to the Bar
of Ontario. In the practice of law
be became a member of the firm
Van Koughnet & Lash, and later
of the firm Beatty, Chadwlck &
Lash. In 1870, being only thirty
years of age, he became Deputy Minister of Justice for Canada and resided at Ottawa. In 1882 he left
the Government service to join Hon.
Sam Blake and Mr. Cassels in the
present well-known firm, and with
this hail reached, practically thirty
years ago, the same height as a
lawyer which  he holds today.
One of his pet themes is the need
for educating' the immigrant to
Canadian ideals. "What is the best
way to make newcomers to Canada
good Canadians?" he once exclaimed
in a speech in Toronto. "Give them
full and true information about
Canada!" That speech was made
many months ago. Recently he provided a young Canadian journalist
with the means of starting an agricultural paper that would help carry
out his idea of education. Thousands differ with Zebulon A. Lash
in his opinions. He is misunderstood by many and misinterpreted
by others. Above the turmoil he
stands as a constructive Canadian,
an up right gentleman and a zealous
citizen.���James Grant, in Toronto
But his activities extended outside the law and when William Mackenzie and Donald Mann��� in those
old days little dreaming of knighthoods���got into their first had legal
tangle and somehow found their wny
into the office of the little lawyer
with the sideburns and the bright
eyes, they unwittingly stumbled upon
the man who was to be a silent, but
dominating factor in making successful most of the big undertakings
they engaged In thereafter. The
legend goes that William Mackenzie
had, in an Impetuous moment, undertaken more than he and his partner had been able to do, and that
the big co-worker had not been able
to find the usual way out. Their
solicitor had failed. Their next assistant solicitor had given it up and
they faced the trouble. In such a
situation it was not only an astute
legal mind they required to help
them, but a man of integrity upon
whom they could rely to the utmost.
And seeking such a man they found
Zebulon   Lash.
On his part, too, '..a.-li had made
a discovery. Brooding over musty
legal fyles he had dreamed big
dreams of work to be done aud re-
wards to be had. He had wished
that he had not been tied to law
books and clients with petty cases.
He saw an empire to be conquered
in Canada, and when he met Mackenzie and Mann blundering from
one big job to another like two big

Trade banquet fifteen years ago.
Toronto scarcely knew Mackenzie
and Mann until then. It was Z. A.
Lash who began to add finesse to
their workings. He showed them
hetter methods of financing. He

Better highway and rail connection with Woodward's Landing
and Richmond municipality, was the
principal matter discussed by the
Progressive Association executive iu
regular weekly session yesterday afternoon. At present the association is endeavoring to secure free
right-of-way from the end of Ewen
avenue tt. No. 5 road for nn extension of Ewen avenue. The proposal
to build the road will be brought
before the Provincial government
and Richmond municipality. With
this road built New Westminster,
it was maintained, would have more
than an even break with Vancouver
for the Delta trade which will soon
cross the river at Woodward's anu
flow to Vancouver direct unless better means of communication to this
city are supplied.
In this connection Commissioner
Darling, a member of the board e.f
trade commitee, appointed to bring
about if possible the immediate connection of the B. C. E. R, with the
C. N. It. in Queensboro, was authorized to act for the association and
the board of trade committee will
be supported by a specia* c'ommlttee
from the association, consisting of
Messrs. Reid, Dorgan and Sutherland, while the matter will be
brought officially before the city
council so that Alderman White, who
was present, may look into the matter for the city. ���
