Ladner Baptist Sunday School Have
Joyous Outing With Sports
and Music.
The Ladner Baptist Sunday school
picnic took place at Grauer's Beach
on Monday in ideal weather. About
40 members and friends left Ladner
at 8.SO in the morning on Mr. Las-
siter's champion wagon, which was
gaily decorated with flags, for the
popular beach.
Mrs. Deane acted as hostess, and
everything of the best was generously provided by that lady for the
festive occasion. Swimming, paddling and games were joyously Indulged In by young and old���frolicsome boys and girls, blithesome
young men aud maidens and members of a maturer age, competing in
sports of quite elaborate kind.
These sports were contested in so
keen a spirit of good natured rivalry
that the names of the winners should
be recorded for all time���in The
Delta Times, as follows.

Roberts; 2, Miss Arnold (of Ottawa);

Scratch Race.
This exciting event took place between the pastor and the organist,
the pastor somehow winning by a
short head. No one, anyhow, would
have tried to beat the pastor.
A great baseball game was also
played, but no authentic details can
he obtained. Rev. C. R. Blunden,
the pastor, declares that It ls the
first and ouly game of baseball he
has ever played, and he was given
by the captain of hls side the exacting position of pitcher. As to the
captains of the two teams, there are
conflicting reports, but it is understood that the two brothers Slater
and Clive Brewster were conspicuous
in directing the game.
Altogether, a happy day was spent
ending at dusk, with much singing
and  cheering for everybody.

work of 126 pages, which constitutes
a report as well as a helpful bulletin
of instruction, covers the history and
condition of the sheep Industry in
every province, pointing out the weak
points and offering useful information for the guidance of older shep-1
herds as well as those who are Just;
beginning, or desire to begin, raia-1
ing mutton and wool. In this work]
the author, who Is a trained sheep 1
than, brings out clearly the great ad- j
vantages of keeping sheep from the
dual standpoint of direct profit In
cash returns and the even more im- [
portant Indirect one of cleaner farms
and better crops.
Then   there   Is   a   special   section,
"From the Block to the Table," designed   to   popularize   the   consumption of mutton and lamb.    Other sections deal  with  weed destruction by
sheep,  diseases,  wool,  housing, enemies, breeds and breeding, feeds and |
feeding   and   other   Important   mat
ters.     Under   "The   Industry   in   the
Different Provinces," some startling
new    facts    concerning    the    profits
made  from  sheep,  are  brought out.(
It   ls  shown   that   a   flock   of  about
150 ewes worth $6 each, after housing, feeding and care, were charged!
against them, gave, ln 1911, a profit
of  more than  $600.    This occurred
on  a  Manitoba wheat  farm.
A special feature of this bulletin
is its many beautiful illustrations In'

VICTORIA, Aug. 21.���The milk
commission held its session in this
city last evening, in fulfilment ot
the powers delegated to the commissioners to examine into "the question
of the sale of milk, and the management of ��� various cowsheds and
.milk shops."
In addition to the public sessions,
the commissioners, Dr. Proctor,
chairman; Dr. A. T. Knight, and F.
J. Coulthard, are making examinations of farms, stores, and places
where milk is vended, and are hearing evidence in the evening. There
was only a small attendance when
Dr. Proctor opened the proceedings
in the council chamber last evening,
and Ithis led Or. G. A. B. Hall to
ask for another session In Victoria.
The chairman said be would consider
the matter, but he thought the system the commissioners was adopting
would secure the most effective
knowledge of conditions.
Important   Matter.
in an explanatory statement. Dr.
Proctor observed that the question
of the milk supply of the province
was of tremendous importance, particularly to the health of the infantile population, lt was a dli't'iciii!
matter to secure a pure milk supply,
and to regulate the functions of administration and Inspection as between governments and municipal
authorities. Their    duties    were
threefold���to Inquire into the matter from standpoint of the farmer,
the retailer, and the consumer. The
commission expected that Its recommendations to the government would
be embodied in legislation to regulate the trade throughout the province.
llr. Donald.
Dr. Donald gave an exhaustive
statement on the history of milk in
its aspect of a disease conveyor, from
statistics culled in many lands, the
tests to determine purity, and preservatives. Taking the connection
between milk anel disease the doctor
pointed out how Infantile diarrhoea
was directly traceable to bad milk.
The greater majority of the cases
of human tuberculosis were due to
the conveyance of the tubercule bacillus through the alimentary tract.
The witness quoted a number of
scientists to show how the tubercule
bacilli were transferred to the human subject, and pointed out that
it was not always the lean kine who
conveyed infection, but often fat,
well-conditioned, animals. Queen
Alexandra had cauesd a test to be
made of a dairy herd in one of the
home farms, and some of the best
looking animals had been discovered
to be infected.
Whatever action was taken lt
should be thorough, extending from
the cow byre to the consumer, and
particularly to the conveyance of
milk in transit. Registration of vendors was essential, and a certificate
of inspection should precede registration. So far as preservatives
were concerned, if used in proper
quantities, he did not think they
caused any danger to the consumer,
but the regulation of the quantities
was essential and preservatives were
often  atidftd   by   inexperienced   men.
He also referred to the use of
formalin, and the cases reported tn
this city where formalin had been
discovered in samples taken by the
inspector, and hoped the medical department of the city would reorganize its system in the interests of
the vendors, although since the
analyst had been appointed, conditions had  been better.
In answer to Mr. Coulthard, he
said he believed that milk being
cooled down to 50 degrees Fahrenheit would serve lo check the creation of disease germs. Pasteurization killed all genus except the
spores <>r anthrax, while sterilization
destroyed the ferment.
Di. Hall.
Dr. Hull, medical health officer,
said he had no statistics prepared,
as lie had not lieen informed of the
session, but would endeavor to send
some written Information about
local conditions to the commlssion-
. ers later on. Much of the milk In
the city came from Seattle, an,d country districts, and contamination arose
in transit. The municipality could
not hope to regulate this condition,
and must loq*J< to the government
for assistance. In their administration of the law they were acting
under the Dominion Pure Food law,
but were handicapped In thai there
was only one prosecutor authorized
under the Act, through whom they
bad to operate In taking cases to
court, and he hoped the commission
would make a recommendation on
the point, in Dr, Pagan's absence
it created considerable difficulty for
the department to proceed. The
milk supply on the whole had been
very unsatisfactory In the city. He
was against the use of preservatives,
the Dominion Aci prohibiting their
use. He hoped in the interests of
the consumers to see an improve
nieiit in the transportation of milk
into  this  city.
Good Milk Here.
City Analyst C. W. Birch was next
called. He showed that during the
hot weather formalin had been used
to a considerable extent, but the result of his analysis during the summer months had proved that Victoria was securing an unusually good
supply of milk. The Canadian
standard was 3.25 per cent, of fat,
and 8.5 of solids not fat, and the
average of the analysis for May,
June and July had been respectively:
May. 3.8 and S.76: June, 4.14 and
8.6f��; and July, 4.4 and 8.9. Most
ol the milk must accordingly come
from Jerseys and not Holstelns.
There was no attempt to deal with

Mr. Israel Rubinowitz, son of Mr.
L. Rubinowitz, of Steveston, is a
candidate for the position of senator of the British Columbia University, and his many friends in Steveston wish good luck to his nomination. Here is a condensed biography  of   the   candidate.
Rubinowitz,   Israel   Isidore,   B.A.:
born    Montreal    1884;   educated   at
Vancouver Public High School; Governor-General's   bronze   and   silver
I medals,   McGill   University.        (B.A.
Honors History, Economics, and Po-
llitical Science, 1904), Rhodes School

i residence   at   Queen's  Col.  Oxford,
studied    law    (1905-8),    post-grad,
course;   called   to   the   bar   (Inner
i Temple    1910),    practised    London
1   1910-1912),    B.    C.       Bar    1912.
Office:    Granville    St.,    Vancouver.
Clubs: United Arts, Playgoers (London),   O.U.D.C.     (Oxford),    Apollo,
Univ. Lodge.
' Chief Constable Thomas O'Connell, of Nanaimo, who is now in
Steveston, states that he thinks the
general good health of the Indians
here, as well as of the .lops and
whites, can be largely attributed to
the good water supply now obtained
by  the Richmond  municipality.
Many farmers in Steveston district are half through with cutting
their oats, and some have already
finished. Threshing is expected to
be general before the end of the
week. Reeve Bridge will commence
threshing early  this  week.
Crop conditions throughout the
Fraser Valley are in a very satisfactory condition, states Mr. C. H.
Stuart-Wade, who accompanied Mr.
Sam Cawley, M.P.P., and government
Road Inspector Cruickshanks on a
tour of inspection, particularly with
regard to the question of road making, in the Eraser Valley.
Starting just after sunrise, *by
auto, the district around Chilliwack
was visited, and conditions, both in
connection with agriculture and fiuit
growing were found to be satisfactory. The steamer Beaver was tak- |
en and the party came down to Su- I
mas Mountain, where* a landing v as
made. Residents near Sumas Moun- <
tain have approached the New West- j
minster Hoard of Trade, for assist-'
ance in obtaining road communi.-u- i
tion with Mission und fraisqui !
points. The expense of nuking a '
main road, it was found, would not!
be warranted at present, but it ls I
expected that recommendations will |
be made to the government that a!
satisfactory trail be established for'
these people, whose nearest s iclal i
point is six miles and a half dis-:
tant. |
The establishment    of a    railway
depot at Wade's Landing on the C. i
N.  R. is looked upon in the locality '
with a great deal of satisfaction in I
thy hope that  a store and  a post
office with telephone communication j
will  be established.     There appears
to be no reason why local traffic on
this railway line should  not be established in the near future, the far-1
mers claim, and if this was done, the j
farmers and  fruit    growers in this I
district  could  get  their produce to I
the New Westminster market.
A large amount of hay is still on
the   fields,   throughout   the   munici- !
pality    of    Matsqui, and the second
showing of clover is In excellent con-1
dition.      The potato crop is exceed-!
irgly large, but thtjre is a slight evidence of blight in some of the fields,
although not to any; great extent. Mr.
Page,  of    Page's  Landing,    has  25
acres in potatoes and indications are
that   there   will   be   a  large  supply
from this district.
The road observations showed the
necessity of a greater supervision
by the government, and the publicity
commissioner was of the opinion that
every municipality should be compelled to have a thoroughly competent road superintendent, with compulsory powers, from the government, by which he would be enabled
to force the municipal authorities to
fill up ruts, and make other necessary repairs, in the early stages of
road destruction, when they could be
done at small cost, rather than follow the present practice, which appears to be to wait until a large expenditure becomes necessary to put
the road into good condition.
The agricultural conditions are
everywhere good, and new settlers,
who have located, express themselves
a i very well pleased. The fruit generally sneaking is looking satisfactory and there is Ilttle evidence ef
d'scase. whilst many new orchards
are being planted.

LONDON, Aug. 20.���The navigation returns of the Suez Canal for
the years 1909-1911 have been Issued
in a white paper and show a record
of increasing prosperity. The number of vessels that passed through the
canal ln the years 1909, 1910 and
1911, respectively, were 4239, 4533
and 4969, their gross tonnage was
21,500,847, 23,054,901 and 25,417,-
853; the net tonnage 15,407,527, 16,-
581,898 and 18,324,749, and the
transit* receipts $22,800,000, $25,-
830.000 and $26,680,000. The gross
receipts for 1911 were the highest
ever recorded. The number of British ships which passed through the
canal last year was 3089, as compared with 2778 in 1910, and 2561 in
the year before.
MONTREAL, Aug. 17.���The ('. P.
1 R. and G.T.R. are already arranging
for the sending of all available empty
j cars to lie in readiness for the mov-
I ing of the Immense grain crop, which
is  expected  this year.     In   fact,  the
| movement of cars to the west has already begun, and by far the biggest
collection  of  rolling  stock  the  west
. bus ever known will lie in readiness
, as soon as threshing starts.
Officials of both roads today    expressed the conviction that the prob-
j lem of shifting the crop would this
year  be handled  with  the minimum
, of convenience, while the Canadian
Northern announces   that it is   in a
I position  to bundle the same propor-
| tion of ihe crop which it handled Inst
year, namely, one-third.

lack of provision to protect milk In
transit throughout the city, although
he found attempts were being made
to keep it covered better than formerly.
Compensation to Cowmen.
Two practical dairymen. 1_. and T.
Raper, then gave evidence. From
their testimony it appeared that on
the Saanich line, milk was lying for
hours on the V. & S. stations waiting to be brought into the city, without proper covering. They also considered the compensation given by
the government for tubercular cattle
condemned for destruction inad*
quate, and Instead of about $4 0, a
calf  cow   was worth   $loo  to   $150
Dr. Donald observed that tuber
cular cows need not be completely
destroyed if they were slaughtered
at an abbatoir where full opportunity of examination was possible. At
Aldersbot, where he formerly examined for the British war office, they
had a regular scale by which the
carcass was condemned in proportion
to  the  amount  affected   by  disease.
The commission then adjourned,
and will meet at Duncan on Friday,
Xanaimo on Tuesday, and Comox tomorrow week. Freeman Bunting,
of Xew Westminster, is secretary of
the commission.

VICTORIA, Aug. 19.���Just 50
years ago yesterday, Victoria then
just commencing to experience the
throes of excitement consequent upon
the great gold rush to the Cariboo,
took on the airs of a metropolis, forsook Its previous irresponsible ways
and became a full-fledged, self-governed condmunity. On August 18.
1862, the City of Victoria came into
being as a municipality, and held Its
first election for mayor and councillors.
Another Costty Monument to Liberal

OTTAWA, Aug. 20.���A second
"collapsible tower" scandal due to
Liberal mismanagement is said to be
in prospect, with far more serious
financial results to the public exchequer than were involved in the

seven years ago. The massive square
tower oi' sto:ie riling over tiie entrance hall of the new million-dollar
Victoria Memorial Museum has, since
the completion of the building,
shown a disposition to part company
with the rest of the building. Cracks
have been discovered from time to
time in the tower walls, inside the
building, necessitating much filling
and plastering, and constant anxious
scrutiny by departmental ��� ngineers.
These cracks are plainly visible to
anyone who chooses to go into the
museum and glance up at the walls,
and are wide enough to strike terror
into the souls of persons nervously
disposed. Officials of the Department of Mines, housed in the museum, are said to work in constant
fear of falling masonry and to be

The whole city, in fact, is full of evidence of the forthcoming elections,
and posters announcing the meetings
of the various Republican, Democratic, Progressive and Socialist candidates are to be seen everywhere.
The chief trouble is the difficulty in
getting qualified voters to register,
only about 300 out of 900 eligible
In three wards of the city having

A somewhat sore point with residents in Blaine Is the withdrawal of
the Blaine-Seattle morning local    by
the G.N.R.. consequent upon the new
service    between     Vancouver,    New
Westminster   and    Bellingham,    via
White Rock. This is a practical illus-j
tration  of an  ill-wind  here  blowing
good for the benefit of the people on j
the Canadian side of the    boundary]
line.    It is anticipated that the new
service will tend to the better    acquaintance  of  the  good  people    of
Blaine with New Westminster    and
Vancouver, and vice versa.
Work on the public Improvements
recently authorized by the Blaine
city council was commenced this
week. The contractors were engaged
thiij week on the concrete foundation
of the Martin street pavement, and
the grading of H. street was also in
progress. The Blaine Water Company
are lowering the water mains along
part of H. street.
"Canada thistles," as they are called here, are getting as thick and
troublesome as they are on their native soil, although it is claimed by
Canadians that they were originally
brought over by Scottish pioneers,
who loved their country not wisely,
but too well. Anyhow, notices are
up here to "get after your thistles.
They are a disgrace to the town,"
and so forth.
Mrs. Hiram Ash, of Rock Bay, Val-
dez Island, B.C., is in Blaine for the

It is stated that the canneries here
are anything but satisfied with the
run of fish and the big price being
paid for sockeyes, now sixty cents a
flsh. Some of the fishers sell from
the boats at 50 cents, but 60 cents is
what the canneries here found It
necessary lately to pay.
The hay and oats crops in Whatcom county are said to be only fair,
rain having done considerable damage. Timothy hay has averaged
from $15 to $18 and oats from $25

STEVESTON, B.C., Aug. 21.���The
sudden death of Mr. W. S. Trltes,
on Saturday, caused deep and widespread regret in Steveston, where
flags were hoisted half mast on all
the principal buildings and canneries.
Mr. W. S. Trltes, who was a
