Array THE DELTA TIMES
Volume 7
LADNER, B. C. SATURDAY, JULY 6, 1912.
$1.00 A YEAR.
A PIONEER
OF PIONEERS
Mr.  Thomas  Earl,   a  "Forty-niner''
and a "Flfty-eighter," Visits
Ladner.
Hale and hearty, genial and jaunty
with his oighty-three years lying very
lightly or. him, Mr. Thomas Earl, of
Lytton, visited The Delta Times office
on Wednesday ln company with Mr.
Honeyman whose guest he has been
during his short visit to the Delta.
Mr. Earl is a pioneer���nay, more,
he is a pioneer of pioneers. It wis
exactly 54 years to a day���the third
of July. 18G8, Bince Mr. Earl left
Eel* ui mult  for  Fort  Hope.
British Columbia has been his
home, with a few holiday trips, ever
since. Even on the third of July,
1858, however, Mr. Earl had established a right to rank as a pioneer.
Born in New Jersey in 1829, when
the whole continent was to all intents and purposes In its swaddling
clothes, he caught the lure of the
West nud joined in' the wild rusli
to the West In '49, on toe discovery
of gold in California. He was first
a "forty-niner" and next a "flfty-
eighter" when the dlsrnyery of gold
on the Fraser River drew men In
thousands from the known to the
unknown In the rush for gold. He
reached Esquimau on the "Sierra
Nevada." There he awaited the
vassal that was tn take him to the
El Dorado of the miner's dreams.
The "Surprise" was the vessel that
was to perform the office of a new
"Golden Fleece." The owners of the ,
"Surprise" were, however, running
no Homeric trips, and each passenger put aboard by the Esquimau Indians had to put up twenty dollars j
in gold for his trip to Fort Hope,
the gold-seekers' destination. It
was a case of money down or nothing doing. The money was put down
and Mr. Earl made the trip. From
Fort Hope he went to Hill's Bar
on this side of Yale, between Yale
and Hone. The results were not
overwhelming, but Mr. Earl was not
discouraged, as nine years before
that is sixty-three years before the
present year of grace he had seen
mining at Santiago, which had not
panned nut better. However, he
thought he woi'M tt*<iV�� a trip baek
to California, where he had .some
good claims. His trouble was futile.
His claims had been jumped in his
absence and he returned straight
awBy to Fort Hope. On this occasion he made the trip from Esquimau
ln a canoe and his eyes sparkle and
his voice thrills as he revels in relating that great canoe voyage.
The subject is one that would require the compass of a long magazine article. Returning to work at
Hill's Bar. he stayed for a while.
He estimates that 500 men, working
terribly long hours under all sorts
of climatic conditions, took out
$500,000 in the two years of 1858
and 1859. The big rush must have
paid the British Government. There
was a gunboat���Mr. Earl says that
although It was called a gunboat
in those days, it was about the size
of the "New Delta." Nevertheless,
it answered Its purpose, for every
man that wished to go up the Fraser
had to put down his $5 for a miner's
license.
He then went to Quosnel and
thereafter in the spring of '62, to
Cariboo. There, flour cost $1.50 a
pound. The cost of living on pork,
beans and flour, and nothing else,
was $5 a day, and working from
light to light, rain and shine, It
was hard to make it. He had met
William and Tom I.adner when they
were packing from Lytton to Ques-
nel in 1860. In '61 he took the
place at Lytton at which he still
lives, and started fruit growing. He
ls the oldest fruit grower for commercial purposes In British Columbia. In 1893 he was appointed a
member of the Provincial Board of
Horticulture along with Mr. Ernest
Hutcheson, of I.adner. Mr. Earl
waxed quite eloquent on Mr. Hutche-
son's qualities, both as a fruit grower
and a friend.
Some  of  the  anecdotes  that   Mr.]
Earl   tells  of  the  old   flat-bottomed
"Knterprlse" and Capt. Billy  Irwin,'
of   long,   lone  trails,   packing camp
outfits and of desperate canoe trips
through   the Fraser canyons,  would
be barred In boys' papers nowadays
ns calculated to unhinge the minds
of youths, and  well-meaning magistrates   would  unrtiotisly  class  them
as pernicious literature, nmld a salvo
of   applause   from   the   "uncsj.uld.",
One  story,  however,   must  be  told.
Mr. Earl is not a big framed man,
but  he  looks,  even  at  83,  all  use,
every Inch  of him.    He was a Justice of the peace ln the early days
at Lytton, when Indians were pretty
hold.    There was one huge chief of
whom most of the white mep.ware
rather  careful.    One  day   Mr.   Earl
had  been n*v��v from  camp,  and  on
his return, found that the big chief
had established himself in his tent. I
He did not know reputation of big
Chief  and   apparently  did   not care, j
for he put on a heavy pair of boots'
and   went  into  that  tent,  just   five-
feet seven of white ferocity.    To see
the   old   man's   eyes   sparkle   as   he
tells the tale you can almost picture i
the battle In the tent and the boot-,
Ing of the big man.    Mr. Earl didn't i
see him again for about a week, and
then   they   met   and  the   big   chief
held  out  his hand  and  said���well,
Mr. Earl rattled it off In Slwash, but
the present scribe not having added
a study of this to the usual repertoire of a Journalist, can only as-

LAND SALE
H. D. Benson's Ranch Sells for Close
on to $150,000 to Loral
Syndicate.
One   of   the   largest,   if   not   the
. largest, real estate deals In the Delta
took  place   during   the   past   week,
when    the    H.   W.   Dennison   ranch
changed hands.    This  ranch,  which
consists of nearly 500 acres, Is one
of the best known  and best located
j In  the district,  and.  in  fact, is one
i of   the   landmarks   of   the   original

Interesting Finish to League Championship  Between Beavers
and Maple Leafs.
Varied   and   Attractive   Programme
Marked  the   Break   I'p  of
the Session.
The struggle for the cup and the'     An   elaborate   programme  partici-
championship of the Delta is almost   pated in by the scholars and others
over. A game which take place
after the "Times" has been issued
but before it will be in the hand-
of many of our readers, will decide
lhe  whole thing.
On Friday last, June 28th, a desperate game between the "Shamrocks" of East Delta and the "Maple
I.eafs"
marked the closing of the I.adner
schools ,on Thursday. Besides the
recitations, songs, and drills given
by tiie children, speeches were made
by Rev. J. J. Hartte and Rev. C. C.
Doyle, following the presentation of
certificates and prizes. The programme follows:

It Ib understood the selling price
roaches close to the $150,000 mark.
The Ladner Investment and Trust
Corporation made the sale for Mr.
Benson.
It Is to be hoped that the present
intentions with regard to subdivid-
'ng the property will be carried out.
Hitherto the development of the
Delta has been retarded by the very
large landowners of the garden of
the continent. These huge farms
bave prevented the Influx of fresh
settlers and fresh blood, and have
-etar-Yd the populating of the Delta
at the same ratio as the rest of
the province. Five hundred acres in
the Delta would, if subdivided into
say 25-acre farms, support in affluence twenty settlers and their
families. .
The papers in the present deal
were all signed up and the first instalment paid to the proprietor,
Reeve  Benson,  on  Wednesday last.

SOUTH VANCOUVER, July 4 ���
Hon. W. J. Bowser, attorney-general,
cannot promise any legislation legalising by-laws passed liy the South
Vancouver Council under the existing Municipal Clauses Act, but the
act will be submitted to a royal commission for amendment and consolidation, according to a letter read by
Reeve Kerr at a meeting of the Westminster Road Improvement. Association last evening. The council asked
that such legislation passed in the
legislature so that street widening
and other work could lie done under
the local Improvement plan. According to the municipal solicitor, the
present act gives municipalities the
same power as cities to pass by-laws
for the expropriation of property,
opening and Improving streets, etc..
but there waB sufficient ambiguity in
the act to make it doubtful wheth r
bonds for such work could be sold.

that lt was Impossible at this

Dear Mamma���I have lust come tn from

Foreign Missions and sit down to write
you my usual weekly letter. I am sorry
I can't write oftener, but you know that
my studies take up all my time. I like
college thts year better than last because
the studies are more Interesting. Besides,
I am getting used to university life. Of
course we girls are not given the privileges the students ln men's colleges have,
but we don't miss them. We are permitted to receive calls of a formal kind from
young men, but lt Isn't as lt Is at home,
where the boys come In and we may romp
as much as we please. However, you
know I prefer girls' society to boys' anyway, and nobody need watch me.
We have study hours ln the evening;
consequently we are always In our rooms
at that time, and Hist now we are preparing for our examinations at the end of
the term. The graduating class this year
ls unusually intellectual, and the faculty
Is looking forward to brilliant exercises
on commencement day. 1 hope tbat I may
meet your wishes by taking an honor
when I graduate I am doing my best to
stand well In my class, but you must remember that I have to compete with a
U'reat many very clever girls.
If you come to see me be sure you let
me know a day or two before your arrival. When we have our friends and

Having titiistied the above epfstle.
Miss Armstrong wrote another to Mr
Ellison Keane. a student tn a neighbor
Ing men's college, In which she avoided
names and wrote In a disguised band:
My Dear���I was sorry not to meet you
as appointed I received a visit from an
aunt, whom I was obliged to escort about
and through the college buildings. This
coming of relatives ut unexpected times
Is dangerous, and In a letter Just written
my mother I have told her not to fall to
give me notice. I'll be at the trystlng
place next Saturday at the same time
and bour, and If you're passing you can
take me up A rest of a couple of hours
will do me good. The truth Is I'm so
bored with the miserable studies and trying to make tbe profs believe that 1 know
something about them that I need a Saturday spree. So don't fail on the next
appointment But be very guarded, and
if any one to be dreaded Is In sight don't
stop, but return -.ml take me ln when the
coast ls clear.   Ta-ta! SPOON.*-.
Miss Armstrong addressed her two
letters and put them ln their envelopes.
Intending to look them over the next
day before mailing the one to her moth
er in the college box. Tbe other she
proposed to take to a private letter box
ln the corner of a stone wall hidden by
bushes. Tbe bell for chapel was ringing tbe next morning wben sbe was rereading them. Hearing a footstep coming, sbe bad only time to cram tbem
Into tbelr respective envelopes wben
the lady in charge of the dormitory eu
tered. Later Miss Armstrong posted
her letters In their proper places.
Tbe next Saturday tbe gentleman
failed to put in an appearance at tbe
trystlng place, and the girl student was
worried. Un looking into the private
letter box on ber way borne sbe found
a letter inclosing one wblcb sbe had
sent bim which was to ber mother.
"Goodness gracious me I" sbe exclaimed. "If 1 did that I must bave
sent tbe letter to bim to mamma
Whatever shall 1 do?"
The same evening a letter came by
post from ber mother.   It read:
My Dear Daughter���i have lust received
a letter from somebody 1 don't know end
which 1 can't read, addressed to me ln
your handwriting. 1 don't know what it

Mrs. Armstrong did not remember Jacqueline having mentioned any of her

of the unsatisfactory car service to
accommodate passengers from Ladner to Vancouver and New Westminster, at their next meeting. From
6:30 p.m. till 10 p.m. to do the 12

Dr. King has some very fine roses
in his garden at present, also a perfect display of asters. The doctor
and Mrs. King take a great pride
in their garden, which is one of the
features of Ladner. The climate of
the Delta seems to be particularly
suitable for roses, which here have
a richness of color and a delicacy
of tinting found in few other places.

THE REGINA CALAMITY.
Many Dead and Some to Die aa Result of Terrible Cyclone
Sunday.
REGINA, July 2���Dominion Day
was a sad holiday for Regina. Sunday night the city was ln gala attire ln anticipation of a day of
pleasure. The morning of the holiday found a large section of the city
in ruins, many citizens dead, scores
in mourning, hundreds injured,
thousands without homes and practically ruined. It alj came through
a terrific cyclone that cut Its path
through the city shortly before B
o'clock Sunday evening.
Thirty persons are known to be
dead and the ghastly list may total
seventy, for there are heaps of ruins
still unsearched, and several patients
in the hospitals suffering from injuries from which they cannot recover. The injured will number
possibly 400, while at least 3000
persons are without homes. In the
three minutes which the storm last-i
ed, it levelled at least BOO buildings,
doing damage estimated at from
eight to ten million dollars.

NEW  WESTMINSTER   MARKET.
There was a comparatively small
turn out at the market at New Westminster yesterday morning. Many of
those who regularly attend had made
no preparations to attend on account
of the haying season being on. while
the morning's rain doubtless kept
away others. There was only a
moderate supply of poultry With the
exception of ducks. Although ducks
were plentiful the prices were higher than last week, rising from 15c
to 18c a lb. Eggs retail were 40
cents a dozen or two dozen for 75
cents. The supply of vegetable!
with the exception of green peas was
scant. Salmon scarce. Halibut fairly plentiful. Veal plentiful. Other
meat supplies normal. Auction market dull and uninteresting, with few
buyers.
LONDON, July 4���Right Hon. R.
L. Borden and his colleagues arrived
at Bristol yesterday at 11 o'clock.
They were welcomed by the mayor
of Bristol, the president and members of the chamber of commerce.

district of Washington, frequently
nodded, closed his eyes, and acted
drowsiiy, both on and off the
bench, is an admitted fact today.
Witnesses called iu "behalf of the
judge yesterday afternoon, however,
strongly denied that these were
evidences of intoxication, but attributed them to a peculiar habit of
the judge which they thought was
brought about hy worry, overwork,
und age. Ten witnesses yesterday
afternoon followed the morning session. Charles Zimmerman, a bartender, furnished the strongest evidence against the judge, while former Judge Thomas Burke of the
territorial supreme court of Washington, and Dr. Park Weed Willis,
personal friends of Judge Hanford,
gave the accused judge a most favorable bill of health as to sobriety,
ability, integrity and industry.
Dr. M. A. Mathewe, .moderator of

Road Making
II.���Advantages of Im- ,.
proved Roads.

NO road Is as expensive as a bad
road. We spend about $100,-
000,000 a year on our roads,
aud they are costing us iu addition a bad roads tax of at least
$250,000,000 annually. It actually costs
tho average farmer as much to haul a
bushel of wheat from bis farm to the
railroad as It does to ship It from
New Vork to Liverpool, 3,100 miles.
The loss lo the people of the United
Slates annually ou account of bad
roads would more than pay for their
general ami widespread Improvement
The burden of bad roads bears heavily  upon  the  shoulders of the entire
COQl'ITLAM   TAX   RATE.
COQ'TXTJ-AM,   June   29.���The   rate
of   taxation   for   the   municipality   of
Coquitlam  this year will  be  14.37 on
improved  lands with  a rebate of two
mills if paid on the date set.   This ts
approximately a rise of two mills on
the previous*rate.    Wild  lands are to
be   taxed   at   20   mills  as   against   15
mills -last  year.    It  is calculated  that
the rates fixed would bring ln a rev-
.��n_e  of  $100,000.    The  tax rate  was
artruck as above at the weekly meeting of the council held or. Thursday,
"Reeve Mar? presiding.

people, for such roads diminish the
profits of the farmer because he must
haul fewer, loads, make fewer trips
and market bis products when the
roads are passable aud not when
prices are best They are a burden
which compels the consumer ln the
city to pay heavily, not to swell the
farmer's earnings, but to help the
farmer to pay the money value of the
absolute waste of energy and property
due to bad roads.
There would be an Immediate and
tangible saving by road Improvement
iu reducing the cost of hauling. How
much this saving would amount to in
dollars and cents would depend upon
the character and extent of tbe im
provement and the amount of traffic
passing over tbe road.
Iu 1908 the railroads of the United
States handled about 800.000.000 tons
of freight originating on the respective railroads. Of this amount about
20f*,000,000 tons represented agricultural, forest and miscellaneous products, all of which moved over the
country roads at Initial or terminal
points or both.
The average haul from farms to
shipping points In the United States
Is about nine nnd one-quarter miles.
! The average cost of hauling on the
country roads is about 23 cents per
ton per mile. The total cost of haul
Ing '_ti5,000.000 tons would therefore
be about $2.10 per ton, or a total of
$r,7_!.930,000.
The possibilities of saving by the
improvement of the roads may be understood when we compare Ibe cost of
banting In Germany. France nnd Eng
land with the cost of batlPng in this
country. The average in i!i"se three
countries Is about 10 cents per ton per
mile, aud in many cases It is as low as
7 cents. If we cut the rate in the
United States exactly In half by tbe
Improvement of our main roods we
would Htlll be l'._ cents over the aver
ago for the three European countries
named. If we could do this It follows
that our annual saving would be in
the neighborhood of $880,000,000 on
hauling alone.
Tho wear and tear ou horses and
vehicles due to bad roads may seem a
trivial matter until we take into consideration the fact that there ure about
25.000.000 horses and mules lu tbe
United States, valued at $2,770,000,000.
and about 1.500-000 carriages, buggies
and wagons, valued at about $83,000.-
000. If by the Improvement of tbe
roads tbe vehicles would lust one year
longer and if one-tenth of tbe amount
paid out for repairs were saved the re
sultant sum would run far into the
millions.
Property Is much more valuable on
an Improved road than on an unimproved road This increase in the value of the land adjacent to tbe improved road has been sufficient In many
Vises to pay for the Improvement. An
effort has been made to estimate the
general Increase In land values due to
Improved roads, and the average has
been placed at somewhere between $2
and $9 per acre. There are positively
thousands of examples where farms
nave been sold at an increase of from
$50 to $200 Per sere over their value
liefore road Improvement.
An investigation recently made In
Ohio shows tbat there are sixteen agricultural counties In tbe state tbat
bave leas than 10 per cent of tbe roads
Improved, while there are forty-five
agricultural counties tbat have more
than 10 per cent Improved. The average price of farm lands ln tbe sixteen
counties, according to the report of the
United States census, was $48.50 per
acre, while the average price of land
ln the forty-five counties was $65.79
per acre. In other words, the average
price of farm lauds in the good road
counties was $17.29, or 35 per cent
more than in the poor road counties.
Wben we consider tbe fact that there
are 873.000,000 acres of farm lands ln
the United States the possibilities
along this line are rather startling.
Even assuming that the land would
be increased only $5 an acre tbe total
enhancement on farm lands alone
would be $4.3flT).0O0.0OO.
Improved roads will yield an additional Income by enabling the farmer
to cultivate with profit land which
otherwise would be less profitably employed.
There are about 400,000.000 acres of
unimproved farm laud in the United
States. An average annual profit of
50 cents an acre ou this land would
menu a net gain to the wealth of the
United States of $200,000,000 a year.
Truck products and small fruits must
be delivered quickly to market If any
profit is to be realized. Truck nnd
I small fruit fai ius cannot be maintained
with profit if a long haul over bnd
roads intervenes between them and
the railroad station A network of
first class hard smooth roads will almost immediately increase the number
of truck, fruit and dairy farms in any
community. While the average value
of wheat per acre Is only $7.03 and
corn $S.72, the average value of vegetables per acre is about $40 and of
small fruits $80,
There is n steady trend of population from the country to the city, nnd
this may be attributed to some extent
to bad roads. During the ten year period 18-6-1900 the cities gained 2,174,
000 more people than the country. In
1800 only 16.1 per cent of the population lived in cities, in 1000 the city
population represented about 31 per
cent of the total, ami uow It ls probably about 45 per cent
With hundreds of millions of acres
of land uncultivated we have the spectacle of hundreds of thousands of human beings crowded into the cities,
while year after year the human tide
rolls restlessly ln from the country to
furnish more consumers and decrease
the number of producers.
To prove that a relation exists between the question of population and
roads the following illustration may be
cited:
In twenty-five counties selected from
eastern, southern, western and northwestern states It has been found tbat
only IV- per cent of roads were improved in 1904. These same counties
show an actual decrease ln population
averaging 3.112 for each county for the
ten year period 1890-1900. Tweuty-flve
other counties located ln tbe same
states containing 40 per cent of improved roads show an actual Increase
In population for each county of 81,005
Whether good roads cause good
schools, or vice versa, it is true tbat
tbey exist together and that one of the
most Important reasons for their improvement is tbeir effect on school attendance ln the country. If the country schools are to bave a maximum efficiency ln training and Instruction the
children must be afforded facilities for
reaching them. Witb improved roads
the graded school and the consolidated
school will replace the little one room
one teacher schools so prevalent in
many sections of tbe country.
The possibilities of a region of improved  roads  are  made apparent  by

many examples of schools which operate wagons regularly, which guther up
the pupils and carry them to and from
school. Wben the roads are placed In
such condition as to muke this practice
general a tremendous Impetus will be
given to education In the United States.
To Illustrate this phase of tbe subject the following example may be
cited: In live states conspicuous for
their good roads there was in 1904 nn
uverage school attendance of 77.13 per
rent, while in five other states having
exceptionally bad roads tbe average
was only 59.10 per cent. Furthermore,
lt hns been ascertained tbat ln tbe five
states baring an exceptionally blgb
percentage of Improved roads tbe white
illiterates formed only three-quarters
of 1 per cent of the total population,
while ln tbe five states wblcb showed
a scarcely appreciable amount of road
Improvement tbe white Illiterates formed 4*V. per cent of the total population,
n percentage six and a third times as
great as In tbe former case.

THE CINCINNATI WHITE HATS.
Generally speaking, the arrival of delegates at Chicago for the Republican Nat.onal Convention, was much of a Calotnumplan parade,
with little respect for the dignity and responsibilities of trie great, gathering. The advent of the Blaine Clu'b���the delegates from Ohio, with
headquarter- at Cincinnati���was a trifle different. They were all dressed ln black morning coats, with white top hats, after the manner of
the late distinguished Ohio Republican statesmain, John C. Blaine.
They marched in fours with officers on the flank of the parade, a very
orderly looking crowd; a tribute at once to the good sense of the Ohio
people, and the memory of their former leader.

HANEY   WATER  BYLAW.
HANEY, June 29.���The Water bylaw which was voted or. by the people of Ma-pile Ridge on Tuesday, June
18, was carrid by an overwhelming
majority and this act will therefore
bo placed on the statute books after
the next meeting of the council.
The ratepayers cast 90 votes for
an'd 12 against the measure. As tihe
bylaw affected scarcely anyone outside oif the town of Haney the voting
at the Hammond and Whonr.ock polls
was very light. Two-thirds of the
votes oast against the bylaw were
polled at Hammond, tlhere being eight
against it there to 18 in favor of the
act Ths following ls the vote as recorded:
For   Against
Haney 63 2
Whonnock   9 2
Hammond    18 8
Total   80 12
The reason for the measure is that
as a water company called the Port
Haney Water Works Company had
establh-hetl a waterworks in Haney, It
was deemed advisaible to pass a law
governing the laying of pipes, tearing up the streets and to give wha"
protection to the company they were
entitled to.
CLOSING THE DEAL.'
CHILLIWACK, July 2.���The voters of Chilliwack decided Friday at
the by-law election held here to float
bonds for $100,000 for the purchase
by the city of the Elk Creek waterworks. The by-law providing for that
amount was passed almost three tc
one, the vote being 89 for and 3'
against the by-law. The purchase
price of the company will be greater
than $100,000, but the balance will
be raised on a mortgage.
At the same time the water by-law
was carried the ratepayers voted to
leave Young street as it is, and the
$5000 asked for widening it was refused. The vote on the project was
47 for and 73 against.
