1'KINCIPALSHIP NOT DESIRED.
Would    Rather    Remain     G-sneral
Superintendent Than be Head
of Ryerson College.
(From The British Columbian.)
The attempt which is being made
to remove Rev. Dr. Chown, general
superintendent for the West, from
Winnipeg to Vancouver, has caused
some agitation In Methodist church
circles out west, whilst ln Toronto
the members of the Methodist
church would regret Dr. Chown's removal to a point so far distant as to
render his visits to the city less frequent, states the Toronto Telegram.
Calls for Big Men.
Rev. Newton Powell has been deputed by the authorities of Ryerson
College, Vancouver, to place the
request before the Methodist General
Conference committee now In session
here. They claim that Ryerson College, as a federated seat of learning
ln connection with the provincial
university, which is being established bn a scale commensurate-with the
site provided by tho British Columbia government, calls for a big man.
as its principal, and the college authorities regard Dr. Chown as an
outstanding Methodist fir the urln-
clpalBhip.
It seems likely however that they
will have to make choice elsewhere
for Dr. Chown is not disposed fit
present to accept the Invitation.
"I would certainly not give up the
position of superintendent to become
principal of Ryerson College," he remarked to a reporter.
If they are unsuccessful ln getting
Dr. Chown for Ryerson College,
Vancouver Methodists will make an
effort to bring about the removal of
his residence to Vancouver as a
strategical point, but ln this also
they will probably be doomed to disappointment, as the middle west will
strongly oppose lt.
DROWNED IN LAKE.
Newington, of the Fishery Protection
Service, Will Continue Patrol
of West Coast Waters.
VICTORIA, Aug. 1.���Having re-
returned from New Westminster after
towing the captured vessels Bonita
and Thelma there to await the official inquiry, the steamer Newington,
Bapt. Barnes, of the Fishery Protection Service, will continue her
patrol of the west coast waters, between Cape Beale and the entrance
of the Straits.
While the Newington ls in port
the two vessels Gunhild and Naiad
are protecting the west coast waters.
The Americans, fishing for salmon
off the entranceto the Straits, have
very few opportunities of getting inside the three-imle limit at present.
In foggy weather many of them work
inside the line, but when it ls clear
tlioy prefer to remain outside, although the attraction of heavy boatloads of British Columbia salmon 18
the best that could be offered. The
northern part of- the island is the
only part which offers a field for
the American fishermen. The protection there ls not so complete as
off the entrance to the Straits and
much halibut is being tawen from
the territorial waters.
W. A. Found, the new superintendent of fisheries for the Dominion, is now on this coast on his first
trip of inspection. He says that a
rigorous policy In regard to poach-;
ing in Canadian waters ls to be maintained. The Pacific coast Is to be
protected in a thorough manner and
it is hoped that poaching will be
stamped out. .
If the fishery protection boats continue to capture American poachers
as fast as they did during the past
weeks, ' the "business will prove to
be very lucrative. The two vessels
taken would realize a considerable
sum at asale, and their nets and
other fishing tackle are worth a neat
little  figure.

Action was taken at the last meeting of the Board of Trade of Eburne,
to appoint a commltee to act in conjunction with the municipalities or
South Vancouver, Burnaby and Richmond through their Boards of Trade,
in an effort to get the Dominion government to appoint a harbor commission, for the improvement of tho
North Arm.
Delta has this week sincerely
mourned the passing of one of her
most respected and esteemed citizens, in the person of Mr. Robert
E. Kittson, whose sudden death in
Victoria last Monday has occasioned
universal regret.
The deceased, with his wife and
daughter, went over to Victoria for
a pleasure trip. When he left, he
was Buffering from a slight cold,
yet in going over to the Capital he
was in the best of spirits and kept
on deck%pointing out places of interest to friends. Later, complaining
ot* a chill, he went down from the
deck to get his coat. After reaching
the Dominion hotel, he continued unwell, but had no serious symptoms.
Then early Monday morning he became very ill in his room, and, before
a doctor could be called, died ln his
wife's arms.
The late Mr. Kittson was a native
of Belfast, Ireland. He had started
business life as a haberdasher ln
Arnott &. Co.'s establishment, Belfast. Then coming to'this country
some 26 years ago, he took up a
homestead ln Bast Delta, where he
gained hls knowledge of farming.
About four years ago he secured another farm in East Delta, about three
miles distant, of about 200 acres, on
which he erected one of the finest
residences in this section.
Earnest in all he undertook, with
a lively sense of his duties and responsibilities, both public and privates Mr. Kittson received many marks
of confidence from his fellow citizens. He was a Justice of the peace
he had been for many years a councillor of Delta municipality, he had
filled the responsible position ot
reeve, with honor, and at the time
of his death was president of the
board of trade, presiding at the last
monthly meeting. He was a former
president of the Delta Conservative
Association, being a strong but fair-
minded supporter of Conservative
principles. A consistent and staunch
member of the Presbyterian church,
be was held In high regard by his
religious associates, who looked up
to him as a man of judgment and
as one whose life was wholly exemplary.
The funeral, held on Wednesday,
from the family residence, Trunk
Road, Delta, was one of the largest
that has been held for many years
In this section. Few there were
among the residents of Ladner or
Delta who were not present, to pay
their last respect to a fellow citizen,
j If it were ln their power to attend.
Very many of the public citizens of
i adjoining municipalities and of the
city of New Westminster were to be
found in  the  long  funeral  cortege.
I The services were conducted by the
Rev. J.J. Hastie, pastor of the Ladner   Presbyterian   church,  of   which
1 the deceased was a faithful member.
I Rev. Mr. Hastie was assisted by Rev.
j J.  H.  White,   Presbyterian  minister,
1 of Eburne. The floral tributes were
particularly numerous.
The pallbearers were) Messrs.
Thos. Robertson, John Honeyman.
Wm. Smellle, Chris Brown, C. A.
Welsh and John Oliver.    Interment,
I was at Boundary Bay cemetery.
!     There are left to mourn a kind
and thoughtful husband and-father,
his wife, three sons,    Robert    and'
Rudolph,   and   two daughters, Sadie
and May. i
The New Westminster British Columbian, ln a notice of tbe funeral, I
says:
"All Delta paid sincere respect to
the late Mr. Robert E. Kittson, j
yesterday afternoon, when his fun-
I eral was held from the family resl-l
dence, Trunk Road, Delta. Not only1
did the residents of the municipality i
j in which the deceased citizen had
worthily played a public part, turnj
out in numbers, but very many of
the representative public men of ad- j
joining municipalities were present,
New Westminster being well repre-!
sented. Tbe floral tributes were
very numerous, one motor car being
banked with those touching evidences of esteem and love for the
departed and of kindly sympathy for
the bereaved family. Recognized by
all as a man of sound judgment, fair-
minded opinions, and living a most
exemplary life, Mr. KittBon was looked up to by members of this church
as one of the leaders in all its activities. Many regrets were expressed that one so influential in religious
and civic affairs should have been
cut off so suddenly and in,the prime
of life from a sphere in which his
work and example had been all forj
the best interests of the community."
The British Columbian mentions
tbe following as attending from tbe
Royal City: Rev. J. S. Henderson,
Mr. J. D. Taylor, M.P., Mr. Frank
J. MacKenzle, M.P.P., and Messrs.
C. A. Welsh, Frank Trapp, Tom
Trapp, Jr., Geo. Blakely, Howard

Are Said to Be Disregarding Patrol
Boats And Fishing Where
They Please.
VANCOUVER, B. C, July 31.���
Disregarding the additional boats
secured by the government fishery
protection service for patrolling the
British Columbia shores against
poachers, dozens of American fishing vessels are cleaning out the
great salmon and halibut banks off
the West Coast of Vancouver Island,
according to advices received here
from Victoria today. Having high-
powered boats of the latest construction, the poachers are easily
able to keep out of tho way of the
sloy patrol boats, lt is claimed, and
the American vessels fish right up
to within half a mile of the shore.
WRECKED ON TRAP.

by colliding with a sub-merged fish
trap piling ln the Bear river straits.
The women and children were later
taken ashore by F. A. Lucas, husband of one of the survivors.
The accident occurred late Sunday
but tbe news was slow in reaching
South Bend on account of the isolated locality of the drowning. Before effecting the rescue, F. A. Lucas
was compelled to swim to the mud
[flats, race over the sharp stone for
three miles, barefooted and naked,
scale a bluff and run through slash-
lings for another mile before he
| reached tae anchorage of the row
boat. It was then a pull of two

(From The British C-Jumblan.)
If the neighboring municipalities
of the Fraser Valley will co-operate
with New Westminster, lt ls proposed
that an exhibit be sent to the United
States Land Show to be held ln Chicago from November 23 to December
8. The agricultural committee of the
Progressive Association reported to
the executive at the meeting last
night, recommending the appointment of a committee to go to Victoria
and If possible secure a grant from
the government to help defray the
expense of such an exhibit.
The committee    has    investigated

Notes.
STEVESTON, Aug. 2.���Hay-making and balling operations ls again
iu full swing in Richmond after the
recent rains. Grain ls fast becoming ripe,' and by the time haying iB
finished, the farmers will have to
comme.ice cutting the grain.
Mr. H. E. Green has given up
the shoe store in Steveston, and will
move to Vancouver this week. Mrs.
Green has also sold out the fruit
store to Paul Leibner. No successor
to Mr. Green lias yet arrived.
Mr. F. J. Beniteau has accepted
the position of driver for the Walker
emporium's motor truck, which is
making a success of rural deliveries
every day. The emporium is making a specialty of supplying fresh
eggs, which are collected from the
la:ms   every   day.
Miss Robinson, of Vancouver, is
visiting Mrs. A. B. Lee, for a few
weeks.
STEVESTON, July 27.���Eight
hundred Indians are -forking in the
canneries in and arJbut Steveston at
the preseut time and within a few
weeks this number will be swelled to
1200. Such is the estimate of Thos.
O'Connell, Dominion constable of the
fishing centre of the lower Fraser
th about three weeks, Mr. O'Connell
said he believed, judging from prev- !
lous experience, that 300 or 400
more would soon be coming down
from the canneries farther northward up the coast of British Columbia where the fishing season begin-
earlier and ends sooner than ln the
Fraser banks, and generally in Puget!
Sound.
Owing  to  the  praiseworthy  care
that has been taken by the Steveston
canneries, to make the living conditions of the Indians as sanitary   as
possible, there has been no contag-
lous disease reported to the officials, j
Constable O'Connell attributes    the !
unusually healthy condition  of the j
foreign population here to the fact
that a good water system has been
l&Stalled since the last fishing season.
The Richmond lacrosse team de-
feated  the  South   Hill  twelve  here
last week by the score of  3  to  2. |
Richmond is now tied for first place
with the Victoria Heights team    of
Vancouver,  in  the  race    for      the
championship of the Vancouver League, for which there is a $100 trophy-
cup up.    Some idea of the closeness
of the matchc between     Richmond
and the South Hill twelveB can be
formed when,It Is known that in or- i
der to  settle  the  game  the  teams j
played eight minutes' over time.
In order to meet the demands of���
a greatly increasing trade, the Walker's  Emporium  has  put     a  new i
motor truck into operation.
Week-end traffic to and from
Steveston necessitated the addition
of a trailer on all the regular tram
cars last week. i

I be well  spent  if no more  than  one
I family Is secured for the valley, as
the report states that each new settler is worth $2000 to a community.
NEW WESTMINSTER MARKET.
Prices generally remained unaltered at the opening of the New Westminster market Friday morning,
with but a fair attendance. The
usual number of farmers was noticeably decreased on account of the fact
that they are busy at this time of the
summer with their crops. The market was overwhelmed with poultry
and the demand was Insistent, the
price for hens standing at 17 and 18
cents, while by the dozen hens
brought between $7 and $9. Eggs
advanced to 40 cents straight. New
potatoes sold at $1.10 a sack and
the demand for small supplies was
considerable. Fish remained at tbe
same price' as Inst week with a fair
supply. The supply of vegetables was
increased, but the prices remained
practically unaltered over last week.
Peas, tomatoes and beans were the
best sellers.
THE POTATO MARKET.
The potato market is in bad shape,
the supply appearing equal to the
demand and to exceed the demand.
The best Delta potatoes are reported
to be selling at. $22.50 a ton, or $10
cheaper than last year.
HAYING.
Haying Is practically complete, the
crop was good and harvested under
fatorable. conditions. Labor was
plentiful. No new hay Is yet being
marketed.
Fishing has greatly Improved during the past few days. The sockeye
catch ls very good for this off season.
Some of the Best Known Lards Sold
in This City Are Declared to
Be Genuine.
Bulletin No. 237 Issued by the
Laboratory of the Inland Revenue
Department, Ottawa, states that dur-
Ing October and November of last;
year, 267 samples of lard were col-,
lected throughout the Province and
analysed, with the result that 262'
were declared genuine according to |
the formula laid down hy order-in-
councll. Under this formula, leaf
lard, and lard compound, must not
contain more than one per cent, of
any substance other than fatty acids
and fat, and leaf lard must not have
an Iodine number higher than sixty-
five. Of the five samples declared
adulterated, two were sold as lard,
which should have been called lard
compound, as they contained cotton
seed oil. This was attributed to
carelessness on the part of the vendor than any Intentional malpractice
of the manufacturer. Three others
contained an undue percentage or
water, two of them so slight, however, that the report regards Its pres-
eree as accidental.
due of the British Columbia samples came In this last class, the water
content being 1.14 per cent. The
remainder of the samples taken In
tbls province, which Included many
of the best known brands sold ln
this city and Vancouver, were declared genuine, with the exception of one
which contained cotton seed ol).
The New Testament speaks out
very clearly about the duty of work.
The Church, too, teacheB that Idleness is shameful, and has given the
State authority to enforce lt. Children are to be brought up in virtue
and learning, and thus be prepared
for citizenship. Such ls the Divine
intention.
God hath set us In families, not for
east or comfort alone, but that we
may be trained for our mission in
life, for everyone has a mission or
field where their work is to be done,
and where God is to be glorified.
So that, in a measure, ou. realm
of peace and joy depends on the
service of others; they, as well as
ourselves, having to render an account with joy or grief. "We exhort
that with quietness they work."
That we may render that service
God has placed us amid fulness of
body and mind, of constitution and
power, all of which ls controlled by
His will. We speak only of these,
for, at such a time as tbls, all other
objects for which men live must pass
out of consideration.
There ls no work better calculated
to lead men to see their dependence
upon God than agriculture; the
worker there has Hired contact with
dew, rain, and sunshine,, hence it is
no wonder that from rn_n following
that pursuit have arisen some of our
most eminent citizens; but when refinement and culture and a reverent
soul are added, the worker ls far
removed from grossness of pleasure.
Surely then It is that "with quietness
they work."
We are met today to show our
tribute of respect to one who grasped
the Divine intention of what life was
meant to be. Personally, I may say,
that there w_�� no one on the Delta
with whom I was on closer terms of
intimacy, partly, it may have been
because he had comparative leisure,
and partly also, because he was always disposed to converse on higher
themes. Into his home, a realm of
peace and joy, It was always a stimulus to enter for the evidences ot
practical religion were on every hand,
filial respect never wanting, and
harshness banished by Joyous endearment.
If you ask me what contribution
to the community such a life makes,
I would lay emphasis on Home-life,
and the elements that enter Into lt.
That kind of work must be done
quietly, with the acknowledgement
of God as the family head, and fidelity among its several members.
While the deceased had an interest
In affair;) ranging from Municipal to
Imperial service, his first concern
was about Home and Church. With
startling suddenness the quiet worker
has passed to his reward���his realm
of peace und Joy beclouded In u
moment; but with what gladness its
remember this, that the last service
he attended���not u fortnight ago���
was the Sacrament of the Lord's
Supper, where he partook In emblem
of that which he has now gone to
share tn reality. One, and all of
us, pray that Christian comfort may
be given to each of the large circle
who deeply mourn his loss.    J. J. H.
WANT THE CUP.
Considerable surprise has been expressed at the fact that the Mackenzie cup, which the Ladner boys won.
has not yet been handed over to
them by last year's winners, the
Westham Island team. A meeting
was held In Ladner last week wllh
regard to the matter, but the feeling
of the lacrosse boys was that the
question of the delivery of the cup
could be well left to the sporting
spirit of the Westham Island lacrosse
I'lithusjasts.
HAKItOK  DREIM'ED.
The King Edward is dredging at
the Ladner harbor and Ih doing mag-
I nificent work. An 18-foot harbor
at low water is now possible. All
the shippers and vessel men express
the Utmost satisfaction with the result of tho operations.

OTTAWA. Aug.  1.���Mr.    W.    H.
Sharpe.  M.r>.,  for  Llsgar, will  likely
be appointed Conservative whip for
Manitoba to succeed Mr. W. D.
Staples, who resigned to become a
member of the Grain Commission,
and Mr. J. D. Taylor, M.P., for New
Westminster, will probably be made
British Columbia whip to succeed
Mr. A. S. Goodeve, now a member
of the Railway Commission. Mr.
John Stanfield, M.P., chief Conservative whip, was In Ottawa recentlj
and conferred with Hon. G. H. Per-
ley, acting-premier, and other ministers, and it is likely these appointments will be made, although no announcement will be made until the
opening of the House. These two
members are exceedingly popular,
and are looked upon as two of tho
ablest and hardest working Western
members.

Sketch  of  the  Industry���Work     of
the Department of Marine and
Fisheries.
There are probably 50,000,000
lob_fers taken from the coastal waters of Canada every year. During the
fishing season, which extends from
April 27th to June 30th, roughly, 11,-
000 men are engaged in actual fishing, and 8000 people are employed
In the 682 canneries, states a bulletin issued by the Conservation Commission. In short, Canada possesses
a more extensive and valuable lobster fishery than any other country in
the world. Lobster canneries were
first established In Canada in 1869,
an din that year 61,000 one-lb. cans
were put up. By 1881 the maximum
pack in the history of the Industry
was reached, when over 17,000,000
pounds were canned. Since that
year there has ben a decline. In 1898
the production was about 10,000,000
pounds and since 1909 there has
been a further falling off.

CATHOLIC COLONISTS.
Roman Catholic Immigration Bureau
Has  Comprehensive  Scheme
to Bring  in  Settlers.
(From The British Columbian.)
Nine hundred and fifty acres of
land In Pitt Meadows lying between
the Pitt and the Llllooet rivers, owned by Archbishop McNeill, of Vancouver, Is being laid out by Albert J.
Hill, the civil engineer of this city.
It is understood that this will be
a part of the scheme for the Catholic
colonization of a district in Pitt
Meadows which has already resujt-
ed in bringing a large number of
the members of that creed from
across the border. The immigration
of the Catholics ls handled through
a Catholic immigration bureau which
has adopted a colonization policy.
These Catholics have already established large and prosperous farms
and are building roads in their locality. The land which they have available In that vicinity is sufficient for
a very large number of settlers!

���IINXRKAHDA STOCK RANCH.
Vancouver   Capitalist,   Who   Makes
Farming a hobby, has Broad
Acres Under Cultivation.
COQUITLAM, July 31.���Lying at
the loot of the Pitt River Mountains, a diBtance of about five miles
from the town of Coquitlam on Pitt
.Meadows is the Minnekada dairy
and stock ranoh company, owned by
Mr. H. L. Jenkins, a Vancouver
I capitalist, who has made farming on
a large scale his hobby. The entire ranch includes about 2000
acres, but at present there is only
about 500 acres in a state of cultl-
vatlon, comprising 200 acres In
oats, 100 ln potatoes, and 200 in
hay.
Haying on the ranch is now in full
suing, twenty men being ln the employ of the company during haying
and harvesting. Three large barns,
each over 100, feet ln length, are
utilized for the storing of hay and
grain, an extra large barn having
just been completed a few days ago
In preparation for the extra amount
of hay over former years.
All thc latest machinery procurable lor farming purposes is there,
no expense having been spared to
have the best of everything at hand
when needed. Ten heavy draught
horses are kept at present besides
nine mares, each with foals; eight
milch cows are also kept besides
200 young pigs.
The plowing of this large ranch
ls all done by a steam plow of 45
horsepower, which is found much
more satisfactory than horse plow-
inn and is more economical. The
whole of the five hundred acres un-
i! t    cultivation     is     underdralned
fn ind to end,  which    has  been
found to be absolutely necessary,
owing to the low stluatlon of the
land, and now, where two years ago

As    Predicted By    Canners,    Heavy
Catches Follow the Waxing
of Luna.
(From The British Columbian.)
Following out the prediction of
salmon canners that the full moon
would bring on the heaviest catches
of the season, the daily report given
by the British Columbia Packers' Association shows a marked increase
ln the number of fish caught in the
Fraser river for this week over that
of last. The full moon causes a
higher tide which seems to draw the
salmon towards the river mouth Irresistibly, according to the opinion
expressed by the canners. The canners' report of catches for today is
as follows:
Bellingham, got 12,000 sockeyes,
yesterday and 500 cohoes; Anacortes
got 5500 sockeyes; Imperial got 4,-
000 sockeyes; Phoenix, got 4500
sockeyes; Scottish-Canadian, got 2,-
600 sockeyes, Ewen's, got 2500 sockeyes; St. Mungo got 1200 sockeyes;

PROSPECTS OF ANOTHER RACE.
Sir Thomas Lipton  May Make Another Attempt to Capture the
America Cup.
NEW YORK, Aug. 1.���Major Eustace Jameson, a well-known English
yachtsman, gave a dinner last month
at the Naval and Military Club, London, to commemorate a dinner given
sixteen years ago at the House of
Commons, to Sir Thomas Lipton and
Commodore J. Plerpont Morgan. The
outcome of that dinner in 1896 was
a race for the America cup, between
Shamrock I. and the Columbia.
At the anniversary dinner, Commodore Morgan, Sir Thomas Lipton and
Mr. Timothy Healy, M.P., who attended the first dinner, were again guests,
and others present were: Lord Furness, Sir William Barclay Post, Sir
William Hutcheson Poe, Major General Brickenden, Oliver Valpy ana
Captain J. Eustace Jameson. The
"Yachtsman" of London, in commenting on this dinner, says: "There is
reason to believe that Major Eustace
Jameson's dinner party may lead to
another race for tho America cup."
This will be pleasing to the American yachtsmen, who have been wanting another International yacht race,
and lt will please, too, a large number of members of the New YorM:
Yacht Club, who are ln favor of reviving the races for the America cup.
The last race was sailed in 1903, between Shamrock 111. and Reliance,
and since then the rules of the holding club have been changed in order
to develop a wholesome type of racing yacht.
Sir Thomas Lipton has been anxious to try again for the big prize,
but his efforts have been In vain.
He wants to build a challenger to
coulorm with the New York Yacht
('tub's present rules of measurement
and a boat of smaller size than former challengers. The club, However,
has decided that under the deed of
gift there should be no restrictions
or limitations to cup yachts and is
not in favor of building to conform
to its own rules for an international
contest. There is, however, the mutual agreement clause, which practically allows the challenged nnd tne
challenger to agree to almost any
conditions.
Former Commodore 3. Pierpont
Morgan has always tnken a great
Interest in International yacht racing.
Many years ago he was one of tne
syndicate to build and raco the Co-
lodia. In 1899 he subscribed liberally to tbe fund for the Columbia,
and he purchased that yacht after Bhe
had defeated the first Shamrock. Re
had the Columbia ln commission in
1901, and she defeated the Sham-
