May 17th.
The constitution and rules of the
j ,, Coast Amateur Lacrosse As-
lon as amended by a special
tee were adopted and the
-jchedulo for the coming season
drawn up at a meeting of the ext-cu-
t)ve of 'he Lower Fraser Valley La-
crosse League, held in the office* of
the I.adner Investment and Trust
Company on Saturday evening.
Representations" from the Sham-
rock, Maple Leaf and Beaver clubs
attended and the harmonious splrl'
, discussions and friendly feeling prevailing augurs well for a good
clean brand of lacrosse for the coming season.
The only difference of opinion that
cropped up during the meeting was
during the discussion on amendments
to the  P.C.A.L.A.   on  the  point  of
procedure in case of a drawn game.
Divers,    opinions    were    expressed,
| some delegates  favoring  the  adoption of tbe association's rule which

CLOSURE RULE PASSES HOUSE.
Vote Was 108 to 73, a Straight Gov-
ei-liiien** Majority
'of 33.
OTTAWA, April 24'.���The closure
rules passed the House shortly before 1 o'clock this morning by a
Btraight party vote of 108 to 73, a
Government majority of 35.
The division was not marked by
any special incidents outside of the
noisy cheering by both sides after the
House had adjourned. There were
two divisions. The first was on the
motion of Hon. J. D. Hazen that the
previous question be put. This was
carried by 35 majority, and the main
resolution amending the rules was
then put and was carried by the same
division.
Mr. Carroll, of South Cape Breton,
last night resumed the debate on the
closure measure, which he characterized as unjust, unwise, unreasonable
and wholly unwarranted. He stated
that beyond the speeches made by
the Prime Minister and the member
for Portage la Prairie, 'no enlightenment had been given to the House
as to how the rules were to be enforced.
Under the proposed rules, said Mr.
Carroll, It would make no difference
if a year's notice were given.
Mr. Carroll was called to account
by the Speaker for referring to the
Government's action as the "corrupt
tendencies of a brute force majority.'
He got into further trouble whea
he proceeded to substitute the word
"animal" fqr "brute."
Hon. H. R. Emmerson, who followed, said that while the people had
a clear conception of the situation,
the Government was apparently
blind.
Debate) in Evening.
Resuming the debate after dinner,
Honorable Mr. Emmerson contended
that the Government's argument that
there had been obstruction of the
public business could not be maintained. No legislation had been
blocked, he said, but the naval bill.
Other business had been facilitated
by the Opposition. He held also that
the reason for the closure resolution
waB that besides the naval bill, there
were others lurking behind the Government's move
DANCE OF
THE SEASON
lla/./.ling Electrical Decorations Feature Successful Hall���Organized by B.C.E. Employees
"The dance of the season" was
the expression evoked from the majority of those who attended the magnificent ball on Friday last, tendered
the residents of Delta by B.C. Electric employees stationed In this
vicinity.
To popular musical' airs beneath
a canopy of evergreens, glowing with
myriads of dazzling electrical decorations, the youth and beauty gathered together and danced the light fan
tastlc until the waning hours demanded a cessation.
More than usual interest had been
evinced iu this dance on account of
the much heralded electrical decorations promised by the committee,
many attending for the sole purpose
of viewing these. To say that expectations were realized is only a
mild method of voicing the complimentary expressions of the thor<
oughly pleased gathering. The in-
t.rior of McNeely Hall was decked,
as seldom before, the artistic blending of electrical colors eclipsing anything of that descript' jn ever attempted here. The blending of light
with a backgroeid of green sharply
contrasted the light festive costumes
of those participating in the various
dances. A feature was the arrangement of switches and color effects,
enabling a reproduction of moonlight. Danced to the dulcet strains
of "Moonlight Bay," this moonlight
waltz became a very popular number
of the programme. The decoration
committee, ably assisted by the local
electrician, Mr. V. Taylor, connot be
too heartily applauded for the magnificent success attending their efforts.
The music was supplied by Franklin's orchestra, with Mr. t"has. Par-

that precedent in Canada directed
that when the rules of the Housl
were to be changed, the matter
should be considered by a special
committee, and he closed by saying:
"I hope closure will never pass

down tonight and forever."
Mr. E. M. Macdonald, of Pictou,
who followed Mr. Emmerson. criticized the jaunty way in which Hon.
W. T. White and other Government
supporters had dealt with this question which involved free government

-News has
The efforts of the Board of Trade
to secure a diminution in freight
charges on the Great Northern Railway's Port Guichon branch on certain
classes of freight, have been rewarded. Notification of a new schedule
of freight rates to go into effect
shortly, was received in a communi-
tlo'n addressed to Mr. S. W. Fisher,
secretary of that Institution.
In February last a delegation of
G.N.R. officials visited Ladner and
the various matters deemed unsatisfactory to shippers and consignees
were thoroughly discussed. The attitude of the company displayed in
the prompt manner in which many
of the defects in the service pointed
out have been remedied Is worthy
of appreciation. Sidings have been
installed where requested and the
matter of freight charges is the
latest   matter   to   receive  attention.
The principal feature^ of the tariff
is the reduction of rates between
Guichon to the metropolis cheaper
Vancouver on vegetable products to
eight cents per 100 lbs. and a corresponding decrease on the carriage
of oats to four cents per 100 lbs.
According to the former tariff it
was possible to ship goods from Port
Guicohn to the metropolis cheaper
than from Intermediate stations as
far as Colebrook, but the new
schedule abolishes this defect, placing all stations on the Port Guichon
branch on an equal basis.
The active manner In which matters of burning public interest have
been assisted by the efforts of the
Board of Trade merits the co-operation of all who participate in the
benefits realized.
Turks  ���flfered  Desperate Resistance
to the Last���Two Hours of
Hand-to-Hand Struggle.
CBTTINJE, April 23.���The capture of Scutari by the Montenegrin
forces is officially reported in a despatch received here today. It ls
estimated that 50(50 Turks and 3000
Montenegrins were slain in the final
attack. The Turkish soldiers, after
surrendering their arms today, were
allowed the freedom of the streets.
Complicates Situation.
Diplomats here regard the victory
of Montenegro as seriously complicating the Balkan situation. Montenegro's open deflnace of the Powers is believed to have upset plans
for settling the war. One of the
principal contentions ot the Powers
has been that Albania be granted an
autonomous government, with Scutari for Its capital. The Powers are
now puzzled how to dislodge the
Montenegrins from Scutari without
an actual fight. If any Power started hostilities against Montenegro it
might precipitate complications
bringing on a general European war.
Surrenders to King.
The Montenegrins entered Scutari
this morning amid a tremendous
demonstration, Eshad Pasha, the
Turkish commander, personally surrendered his sword to King Nicholas
after one of the most desperate battles of modern times. Twenty
thousand Turkish soldiers were taken prisoners.
Followed Heavy Fighting.
The surrender followed two days
and nights of fighting, with the Montenegrin artillery bombarding the
city. Late yesterday the final assault was started, all but two of the
city's outer defences having been
captured days ago. Last night a
rush was made on Scutari Itself. The
Turks valiantly defended the city,
rushing out to meet the besiegers.
The artillery of both sides suddenly'
stopped firing, the opposing troops
firing rifle volleys at close range.
Hundreds were killed. Finally the
conflict became too close for rifle

ON G.N.R. TRACK
William    Corbett,    Well    Known    in
Delta, Run  Down and  Killed
at Sapperton.
Struck by a Great Northern flyer
near the North Road crossing, just
beyond New Westminster city limits,
William Corbett, of Blaine, Washington, met with a tragic end at ten
o'clock Thursday morning, his neck
being broken and other injuries sustained, causing practically instantaneous death.
Mr. Corbett had reached a somewhat advanced age, being in the
neighborhood of seventy years. At
the time of the fatal occurrence he
was walking along the G.N.R. tracks
in the vicinity of the gravel pits.
The engineer in charge of the train
sighted the unfortunate man somo
time before the train struck him and
gave warning whistles, but owing to
the victim being totaily deaf these
signals were not heeded.
Mr. Corbett was visiting at the
home of a daughter in Sapperton and
the Sudden shock of her father's untimely death prostrated her with
grief.
The deceased gentleman was well
known and highly respected by many
who had had the pleasure of making his acquaintance on the occasions
of his frequent visits to his two
daughters, Mrs. Seymour Huff and
Mrs. Walter Creech, residing here.
The sympathy of the district is extended to them in their particularly
sad bereavement.

LONDON, April 23.���It will cost

to ruu tbe British government during the ensuing fiscal year, according
to the chancellor, Right Hon. David

caused by expenditures for army and
navy armaments.

"There are no indications that the

The chancellor estimated that the
total revenue on the existing bads

leaving a margin of $925,000 over
the estmated expenditure.
"The cost of armaments," the
chancellor remarked, "is the largest
and most sterile increase ln the expenditure, and I cannot see any prospect of this menacing development
coming to an end, unless some
change takes place in the attitude
and policy of the nations concerned."
The expenditure on education and
social reforms was lauded on the
other hand by the chancellor as "reproductive work promising strength,
happiness and efficiency to the nation."

Sir Richard Scott was born in
Prescott, Ont., February 24, 1825.
He was of United Empire Loyalist
descent, being a son of the late Dr.
J. Scott, who served under the Duke
of Wellington in the army medical
department. ln 1852 he was elected mayor of Ottawa. In 1857 Mr.
Richard Scott entered a wider political sphere and was elected to the
Canadian legislature for Ottawa, but
suffered defeat on seeking re-election in  1883.
When confederation was consummated and the first general election
of the Ontario legislative assembly
was held, Mr. Scott was again elected for Ottawa and from that day
until the time of his death had been
continually active in Canadian politics as, a member of one of the great
legislative bodies. In 1871 he was
elected Speaker of the Ontario legislative assembly, but in the organization of the Blake administration he
was asked to accept a portfolio and
a seat in the descriptive council and
resign the speakership, which he did.
He then became commissioner of
Crown lands.
Called to Privy Council.
In the year 1873 he was called to
the Privy Council, as a member of
the Mackenzie administration and resigned his place in the Ontario government and his seat In the House.
He entered Dominion Politics as
Secretary of State and Registrar
General of Canada. He was called
to the Upper Chamber on March 13,
1874.
Among the noted hills which he
was Instrumental in having passed
were the Separate Schools Act ln
1863 and the Canadian Temperance
Act. better known as the "Scott Act,"
in 1878.

Sir Richard Scott had been presented both to King Edward VII, and
King George V��� and was knighted

ing a rate basis at the present time,
and in the light of the different aspects of revenue and operation now
presented certainly as reasonable
from the standpoint of the carriar
as from that of the shipper."
Cost of Doing Business.
The companies assert that the cost
of doing business in the West is
greater on account of the increased
operating cost and less dens-.ty of
traffic, but these the board considers to have been unduly emphasized,
finding Western rates unreasonable,
and orders a reduction of 20 par
cent, in the standing maximum for
tariff classified as merchandise for
the prairie provinces and British Columbia.
The present minimum charge of
25 cents is not interfered with. The
"graduate tables" already fixed by
the board for express shipments are
to be reduced according to the general 20  per cent, decrease.
Taking figures ifdvanced by the
American companies the judgment
states that the establishment of parcels post probably will mean a reduction of four and a half per cent,
in express business in Canada.

panics' tariffs, are reductions which
only little affect the manner in
which the bulk of Uie tariff is moving, or are perhaps compensated by
additions which have been made to
the rates, presumably in the levelling
process, in establishing a mileage
basis of standard rates as provided
by the judgment. I am of the opinion that an approximately average
reduction of twenty per cent, should
be made by the companies in the
standard maximum tariff for traffic
classified as merchandise to apply
only to the prairie province and to
British Columbia."
The decision also provides that
there is to be a similar reduction in
special rates. A particularly important portion of the board's order* is
the provision for the basis of the
stan'dard maximum mileage tariffs.
Under the Mabee decision the standard maximum was placed at $5 a
hundred pounds for the prairie section, and $6 for the mountain section. This is reduced to $4 for the
prairie and $4.75 for the mountain
section.
Will Help B. C. Fruit Industry.
It is believed that tne British Columbia reduction will be particularly
valuable to the fruit industry of the
coast province, as it will give them
far lower express rates to the prairies.
An interesting feature is the statement that the inauguration of the
parcels post system in the Dominion
will considerably cut down the express companies' busineBS. This
reason is given for not making a
greater decrease than 20 per cent.
and for not making any changes at
all in the Eastern rates. The chairman sayB in this regard:
"It iB impossible at the present
time to estimate the effect of parcels
post ln Canada. The difference of
conditions in Canada may produce
either greater or less losses to th^
business of the express companies,
References made to them merely
show the impossibility of now making any close analysis for future
rates at the new factor, the result
of which is unknown. The figures
of the American companies, however,
seem to justify the express companies in the fear that the adoption
of the system in Canada will work a
serious loss to them. Until this unknown quantity is ascertained, the
results of the express companies
business and figures before me would
not justify any further reduction
than that now ordered."
Continuing, the chairman takes
up in detail the claims of the companies. The cost of doing business
in the West is greater and the density of the traffic less than in the
East.    The chairman comments:
"The actual results of operation
would seem to show that undue effect has been given to these consid

Bernstein, the famous leader of the
"Revisionist" wing of the Socialist
party. Bernstein is a member of
the Reichstag and chief of the progressive and liberal movement in
the Socialist party.
"It is true that the proposed onetime property emergency tax will
not touch the masses," he declared,
"but we are against it none the less.
We are against the entire military

and in the United States that the

not true. We would not leave the

is a 'semi-feudal system,' a system
wherein the common man, the man

Bernstein denied that the Socialists would strike in the event of war
but qualified his statement with the
remarks that "there are wars and
wars," and "a strike probably would | UejJM-^collector
depend upon the sort oi a war we
were entering into." "If Germany

Previous to the rending of the
committee's report last night, Alderman McNeice wrote stating that he
did not feel justified in making a

being somewhat new at the business
he might be mistaken.

had voted for Mackenzie, also Mayor

THE DELTA TIMES
SATURDAY, APRIL 20, 1913,
���WA8HI1-.-JT0N STATE
OLYMPIA, April 24.���Figures
prepared in the office of State Treasurer Edward Meath for presentation
to the capitol commission at its next
m<-eting, show the capitol building
fund to he indebted to the extest of
$1,160,468.95. Of this amount
$616,168.95 is due the state general
fund for moneys advanced for building the temple of justice aud interest
and principal of old outstanding warrants. 1
A feature of the rftatement lies In
the fact that the interest on the war-
lants for the old capitol foundation,
laid just previous to the Rogers administration, now amounts ts 138
per cent, of the principal, having run
at 8 per cent, for more than seventeen years. This interest tstals
$20,856.
There is on hand in cash nsw in
the capitol building fund only $16,-
193.91.
This means that the capital commission owes to the general fund
of the state over $615,168 sa advanced borrowings and over $54*0,-
000 in Interest, warrants aad ether
items.
Cannot Give Site.
OLYMPIA, April 24.���The state of
Washington cannot give to the federal government the section of Kitsap county land which the legislature voted to grant ns a site for 9
torpedo station, Attorney-General W.
V. Tanner ruling today that the bill
passed was unconstitutional. His
opinion was given to Land Commissioner Clark V. Savidge.
The land Involved is section 36,
township 21, range 4 east, aai is
therefore a school section. The constitution provides that school land
must be disposed of only by public
sale, and upon this point hinges the
opinion relative to the law's csastl-
tutlonallty.
Therefore, if the federal tsrpedo
station is established there, the land
will have to be purchased by the
government  at  public  sale.
Inspector Bribed.
SEATTLE, Wash., .April 24.���
Two witnesses who daisied to
have bribed a city milk inspector,
under the guise of giving him
"Christmas presents," enlivened the
so-called "garbage investigation" before the council's efficiency committee yesterday. The witnesses, Mrs.
A. E. Gulte and Henry Tobias, formerly operated a dairy north of Ballard, and admitted under cross-ex
aminatlon that they bad been cob
stantly criticised by the milk inspection department for insanitary methods, watering their milk and other
matters.
However, both witnesses swere
that about. Christmas time in 1910,
Tobias got $5 from Mrs. Guiteau,
who ran the office, and gave it 'o
Milk Inspector C. W. Butler. "Afte.
that Butler kept away for several
months," said Tobias.
Segregates Land Work.
OLYMPIA,    April    24.���Clark   V.
Savidge,   state   land   commissioner,
has  divided  the work  of  his office
so that it is segregated into departments with one person in charge of
each. E. C. Dohm heads the fiold
department; E. C. Townsend, tide
land; George. D. Aspinwall, abstracting department; W. w. Hopkins,
bookkeeping department, while Miss
Jean McLeod. who was executive
stenographer from 1905 until IMS,
has heen assigned as head of the
stenographic department in the state
land office.
Frui( Crop Escapes Frost.
KIO.NA, April 24.���The fruit in
the Kiona district was untouched by
the frost this spring, but the crop
will be a comparatively light, one in
winter apples. Apricots, poachers,
cherries, pears and plums are a full
crop, with a perfect season tor straw-
. berries.
IMRT COQUITLAM.
Inauguration Celebration of New City
Held  Last  Friday���Games
uml Sports.
(Prom The British Columbian.)
Citizens of Port Coquitlam cast
aside business affairs Friday Ion.;*,
enough to fittingly commemorate the
incorporation of their city. Patriotic
speeches, stirring music by the city-
band, presentation of medals, planting of trees which will ln time become historic, athletic contests, a
grand banquet, and a dance in the
evening, combine*d to leave a lasting impression on young and old of
this important milestone of the city's
advance,
Glorious weather prevailed and
the assemblage presented a brilliant
spectacle, the summer costumes of
tbe ladies lending a variety of color
to the scene.
As early as 10-30 commencement
of the day's programme was made,
the children of ths district gathering
at the Central school where a presentation of a sliver oommemoratlon
medal was made to eaoh child.
A procession headed hy the mayor
and aldsrmsn followed by the members of the Incorporation committee,
Port Coquitlam city band, school
children, school trustees and citizens proceeded from thence to the
Agricultural Soelety's grounds.
Mayor James Mars briefly addressed tbe children welcoming them to
participate in the day's enjoyment.
Athletic contests of every description
featured the afternoon programme.
A committee looked after the Interests of the younger generation and
numerous races for boys and girls
were listed on the programme. A
baseball game. Regulars vs. Yanni-
gans, resulted In the former winning 23 to 12, while Geo. Flood's
team was successful In winning the
tug-of-war contest for municipal
employees.
The Coquitlam football team celebrated Inauguration day by defeating South Hill in a league fixture,
five goals to one, Aid. Welcher kicking off. The grass hockey match between the Port Coquitlam Girls'
Hockey Club and the Royal City
High School team resulted in a draw
each team securing one goal.
At 3.30 p.m. a large crowd gathered in front of the Agricultural
Building to witness the planting of
civic commemoration trees. Alderman John F. Langan, on behalf of
tho incorporation committee, presented the mayor with a silver trowel to
perform the seremony, requesting
him to keep t-hJw implement as a souvenir of the historic occasion.
Mayor Mars briefly addressed the
gathering remarking that it was only
fitting that the trees to be planted
were maples, symbolizing the freedom and liberty enjoyed by citizens
of Canada. The rapid growth of the
maple would be equalled only by the
growth of their city of Port Coquitlam.
The various commemorative trees
were planted and the Hon. Dr. Es-
son Young, minister of education for
the province of British Columbia
spoke. He referred to the maple as
the recognized emblem of our great
Dominion. It was symbolic of
liberty, freedom and citizenship. The
citizens of the United States boasted
of their country as the land of liberty
but it remained for Canada to exemplify the true meaning of liberty
and freedom. The best qualities of
citizenship could only be developed
by carefully nurturing and guarding
the children. It was only by precept and example that they could
hope to Implant these principles in
the younger generation and it behoved each Individual to live up to
the high standard of citizenship symbolized by our national emblem. The
provincial government was bearing
its share of the burden by the equipment and building of scholastic Institutions.
SIMON  ERASER.
It is over a hundred years sine?
Simon Fraser first saw the site of
what is now New Westminster and
viewed the Gulf of Georgia from a
point adjacent to the mouth of the
North Ajm. It is fifty-one years ago
today since he died at St. Andrew's,
Ont., at the age of 86. Fraser was a
great explorer of Western Canada,
particularly of what has since b3-
come British Columbia, doing hitf
work as an official of the Northwest
Company, a trading corporation afterwards absorbed by the- Hudson's
Bay Company.
In t807 Fraser received instructions to explore the Fraser, of which
only the head waters were known to
the traders and which had not oeeii
named. Under the impression that
he was following down the Columbia
river, the pioneer reached the mouth
of the stream that now bears his
name and which is now overlooked
by his monument on the Crescent,
and those who have seen the Fraser
canyons can realize to some extent
the courage and hardihood of the explorer who overcame the obstacles
opposed to him not only by hostll-
lndlans, but by nature, where nature
is more savage than the natives ever
were.
A VALLEY PRODUCTS DAY.
STRAWBERRY HILL NEWS.
TIMELY  AID.
Fraser Valley Products Day���May

kinds of fish caught in local waters,
put up in a dozen or more ways,
canned, salted, smoked, kippered,
and fresh.

Mrs. Graemes on Thursday afternoon, a spark from the chimney igniting the dry roof. Had it not been

bringing in the decorated casket.

STEVESTON, Lulu Island, April
21.���Engaged In the work on the
Lulu Island line of the C. N. R. there
are at present one hundred men. Of
this number 30 are working on the
big traction grader, and already the
gang has graded from a point three-
fourths of a mile east of No. 5 to a
point about a mile west of No. 4,
a total distance of two and three-
fourth miles, which comprises the
right-of-way in the vicinity of Woodward's Slough, where the company
is to have its ferry terminals.
About twenty men, with the pile
drivers, are ln camp on Nelson road.
Good progress has been made by the
crew, about one-half mile of piles
having been driven, and this week
they expect to move their camp one-
half mile farther west. The, piles
are driven in rows of four and, when
driven in project about two feet out
of the ground. On them are placed
12 inch by 12 inch timbers. The
piles and the lumber for this work
are being landed at the wharf at
the end of Nelson road.
The remaining workmen are engaged in clearing the right-of-way,
east of Nelson road. As the clearing is light, rapid progress is being made. The men employed are
chiefly of the English-speaking race,
though amongst them may be found
a few Scandinavians.

YORK COUNTY LOAN.
��� _________
All   the   Property   of   Defunct     Organization Has Heen Disposed
of By Liquidators.
TORONTO, April 22.���With the
exception of a few small portions of
land, all the district property belonging to the defunct York County
Loan has passed out of the control
of the liquidators, the National
Trust Co., having been sold since
1906. The amount of money realized on the sale of lots belonging to
the York Loan district totalled $1,-
060,000. Interest added $60,000, and
Incidentals $16,000. It Is estimated that, tho cost of selling this property will amount to about $39,000.
This means that to date the
liquidators have recc-ived $1,597,-
00 0. This has been paid to the
shareholders In the company in two
dividends. For the balance of the
property still remaining It Is anticipated that between $50,000 and
$60,000 will be realized. This amount will be in turn paid to the
shareholders as a third dividend.
Altogether it ls expected that the
total York loan payments will amount to $1,647,000 while their total
liability to the shareholders is $4,-
05G.80O.
"The next dividend will be a
final one and you may say that
there will be no dividend this year,"
was the announcement of the National Trust Co. when approached.
The delay Is occasioned, they claim,
by the difficulty in getting in the
payments on the real estafe which
formed the greater part ot the assets of the York Loan.
When the York Loan district property was first placed on the market Roncesvalles avenue frontage
was held at $30 a foot for two "years
before any of it was disposed of.
Residential property at $65 a foot
in any part of the York Loan district is now a thing of the past and
according to a real estate agent
there, the price of frontage on
Roncesvalle avenue now ranges
from $150 to $350 a foot.
