The boats were seized on July 30
by the United States revenue cutter
Areata. It was alleged thr.t the
four boats were taken while lisu'ig
within the three-mile limit. The
boats were towed to Blaine and
turned over to Mr. Ellsperman, ~��no

The King Edward dredge was accompanied by a small fleet of scow

Mr. A. Campbell Hope, of Vancouver, is the architect, and Mr. C. G.
Bowden, of New Westminster, the
contractor. The building is estimated to cost about $12,000.
Hay cutting throughout Delta '��
practically finished, but there still
remains a large portion of hay not
yet stacked. Oats have been looking
fine  and  a  heavy  crop  ls expected.
Mr. Rich, of Brackman-Ker, Lira-

paid for hay. Oat and wheat cutting will be ln full swing in the
course of a week or two. The wheat
Is not largely grown, being chiefly
for chicken feed.
It is feared that the heavy rainfall
prevalent in the Delta district oil

This commences with the health and

Bubject through the various stages | naiiBtlce
of milking, separating, storing and
delivering the cream, each section
being dealt with from the standpoint
of the man on the job rather than of
the official In an office. The results
of experiments conducted on farms
and in creameries are given to show
the advantages of separating a rich
cream, properly cooling and storing
it, as well as of making frequent deliveries. The bulletin says: "Keeping lhe cream for longer than two
days at the farms has, no doubt,
much to do with the old cream flavor so common in gathered cream
butter, and we can scarcely expect to
have this defect remedied so long as
cream is gathered less than three
times each week."
Each creamery association can obtain sufficient copies to supply each
patron oil application to the publications branch of the department of
agriculture at Ottawa.
According to siatlstlcs gleaned
from the 1911 census of Canada, the
total capital value of the fruit growing industry in British Columbia,
Ontario, Quebec and the maritime
provinces is in round numbers, $12,-

third conference of fruit growers of
Canada, held in Ottawa last February. This conference, which lasted
three days, was a very important one
from many standpoints as lt was

new fruits, refrigeration, fruit packages, amendments to the Inspection

The Department of Marine and
Fisheries has tried a number of experiments in the hope of regulating
the lobster fishery with a view to its
better conservation. Hatcheries have
been encouraged and efforts made to
have the fishermen bring the egg-
bearing female lobsters to these
hatcheries. This has been fairly
successful. There are now thirteen
lobster hatcheries on the Atlantic
coast, and millions of lobster eggs
are artificially hatched annually and
the young fry planted. This has been
found very beneficial because it saves
the destruction of the female lobster
eggs which would be lost If they are j

Langley Flower    Show    Brings Out
Magnificent Displays of Horticulturists' Art.
FORT LANGLEY, Aug. 8���Success greatly exceeding the highest
hopes was attained yesterday at
the opening of the second annual
flower show and picnic of the Langley Women's Institute held In the
Langley Town Hall. With some
three hundred entries and over fifty
participants in the competition for
the half hundred prizes offered, the
show was better in every way than
the one held last year.
The hall in which the flowers
were displayed was a bower of
beauty, the long rows of prize flowers giving out a fragrance that could
be detected at any place In the picnic grounds. The displays of pan-
sies, sweet  peas,  dahlias    and  ger-
have been made in the conservation
of the Canadian lobster Industry.

Recalled by Mr. J. M. Dale, a Pioneer
of   Hammond   Municipality.
HAMMOND, B.C., Aug. 7.���One of
the old timers of Maple Ridge is Mr.
J. M. Dale, who recently sold out his
business at Hammond. Landing at
Hammond twenty-four years ago he
has prospered with the growth of
Maple Ridge Municipality, and after
a strenuous life here he deserves to
rest upon his oars.
The old timers of two or three decades ago have seen the development
of British Columbia under conditions
which are fast disappearing. In that
comparatively brief period In a country's history, forests have been transformed into fertile grain and    fruit
fields, clusters of shacks Into thriving towns, and small country towns
have  become  cities of International
Importance.    New Westminster had
no   bridge  across  the    Fraser,     Its
streets were unpaved and badly lighted, Its wharves were practically idle, I
its Industries were few and lnslgnifl-!
cant, and It had not yet become a
city of beautiful homes.    As to the
present populous and  thriving sub-;
urbs of New Westminster, they were I
not even on the maps of either real!
estate agents or of the municipality, j
In those days the towns and dls-i
tricts of the .raser Valley were many 1
of them practically sparse settlements
of log cabins, and Hammond had nol
store until Mr. Dale arrived upon the I
On his arrival at Hammond Mr.
Dale Immediately started a small
trading post store, having bought up
several town lots from Mr. Wm.
Smith, of Cloverdale. His first stock
of goods was bought from Charley
McDonough, of New Westminster,
then well known throughout the
Fraser Valley for the excellent and
varied charicted of hls goods. Shortly afterwards Mr. Dale started the
first hotel ln Hammond, which for
many years afforded the only accommodation a visitor could obtain.
Since hls advent, Mr. Dale has
seen new roads opened, sawmills established, churches, stores and hotels
erected and Hammond develope into
an ambitious port. Besides which
Hammond has become a flourishing
district for farmers and famous especially for Its fruit.
Mr. Dale states that since the land
was dyked the value of agricultural
produce here has greatly Increased.
In the first few years of the settlement beef cattle were largely bred,
but since then farmers have gone
more into dairying.
One of the stories told by Mr. Dale
of these early pioneering days refers
to Ike Oppenhelmer, brother of D.
Oppenhelm-r, an early mayor of Vancouver. Ike was a very keen, close
business man and traded largely at
Yale and on the old Cariboo road.
Selling a small, ordinary needle,
which are sold nowadays in five-cent
packets, to a needy settler of these
wild nnd woolly days, old Ike asked
for one dollar.
"But that's a devil of a price," exclaimed the intending buyer.
"Yes, my Mend," declared Ike,
"but look at the freight."

The British Columbia provincial
exhibit in the east end of the Manufacturers' Building is typical of the
province from which it comes. Mammoth trees, Infinite varieties of ores
and minerals, luscious fruit of all
kinds and photographic sketches,
picturing the rugged mountains, the
forests and the fruitful valleys are
seen here.
The exhibit is.in charge of Mr. W.
J. Brandrith, exhibition commissioner

Mr. H. McL. Johnson. These gentlemen have the interests of their
province at heart and are at the exhibit daily to answer questions ana
Interest people in the life 'and resources of British  Columbia.
The natural resources of British
Columbia are more varied, perhaps,
than those of any other province in
the Dominion, and the exhibits
shown illustrate this great natural
wealth. The timber of the province
tn all Its varieties is shown to good
effect in the exhibit. Huge blocks
of fir, spruce, cedar and hemlock
stand outside the exhibit proper and
are wonderful examples of the timber growth in the province. A huge
fir, measuring six feet both ways,
is something out of the ordinary
and makes the average man look
lather small. The finished product
is seen in doors of fir and cedar
in their natural finish and also In
numerous panels of edge grain.
Along the wall are photographs
which show the huge towering cedar
and hemlocks which mike clear the
relative size of the trees.
The  display  of  fruit  is the  best
feature   of   the   exhibit,  with  fine
specimens of almost every variety of
fruit grown in the province.      The
size, quality and coloring of the fruit
make a showing unequalled by that
of any other exhibits.    The variety
of fruit grown is shown in the many
different brands of each class. There
are seven varieties of apples, three
of  apricots,  three  of  plums,  seven
of cherries, two of raspberries, two
of paper; and taking an average of | 0f black currants, two of blackberries
