VANCOUVER, Nov. 9.���The matter of establishing a ferry between
Woodward and Ladner was discusB-
ed on November 2nd, at a special
meeting of the council of the Vancouver Board of Trade. The president, Mr. A. B. Erskine, Mr. C. E.
Tisdall, M.P.P., and the secretary,
Mr. W. A. Blair, were appointed a
committee to take up the matter
with the government. A proposal
was made some time ago to have
a bridge constructed from Woodward' Slough to Ladner, but objection was offered to this scheme by
the Dominion and Provincial governments. The ferry would carry both
passengers and vehicles.

The marriage of Violet Mary, second daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Thos.

Beresford Peele. of Vancouver, son
ot Captain and Mrs. Adolphus Peele,
of New Westminster, was solemnized
at St. Paul's Church, Vancouver, at
noon, Wednesday, October 30. An
effective grouping of palms and ferns
banked the chancel of the church,
and white flowers mingled prettily
with the greenery. To the bridal
hymn played on the organ, the young
bride entered the church, preceded
by three attendants and escorted by
her father, by whom she was given In
marriage. Her wedding robe was of
white satin, with rich drapery of
rose' point lace and delicate embroidery of seed pearls. The skirt, gracefully fashioned en train, divided at
the side to open over a petticoat of
filmy chiffon and two large wclte
llllles ornamented the front panel,
one at the hem and the other caught
at the high waist line. Her flowers
were exquisite, bridal rosebuds, and
her long veil was surmounted by a
wreath of orange blossoms. As m,l_
of honor, her young sister, Miss l*_arl
Ladner, made a dainty picture ln a
frock of pink silk crepe de chine with
self ruchlngs, completed by a protty
white hat and a shower of pink carnations. Two bridesmaids also were
in waiting, Miss Nora Armstrong and
Miss Nan Phillips, their gowns of
green satin veiled ln pannier style
with pale pink ninon and trimmed
with dainties of pink chiffon rosebuds. They also carried pink carnations and their hats were picture
shapes In black velvet, mounted with
plumes. Mr. Oswald Peele was his
brother's groomsman, and the ushers
were Mr. Harold Jukes Marshall and
Mr. Harry Bray. The service was

Fast  Football  Game  Ends  in  Draw
���Local Team Played Strong
Game;   Score, ^^H
In one of the best games of the
season the Westham Island football
team played the Rovers of New Westminster at Ladner last Saturday, the
game ending in a tie. with two goals
each. The game was clean and
played in a truly sportsmanlike spirit.
The first half ended two to one for
the Rovers, but the Westham Islanders came back and evened tbe score
about ten minutes before time was
up. Owing to the late arrival ot
tho visitors, only 35-mlnute halves
were played.
The Islanders scored the first goal
through A. Trim, but Cadyzlen evened up for the Rovers, and Carinduff
added the second for the visitors.
Nothing daunted, the Islanders came
back, and E. London evened the
score in  the  last half.
The game was the tnlrd tie game
for the Rovers, who have not suffered a defeat this season.
The Thistles of Vancouver and the
,Rovers are tie in first place in the
league with seven points each to their
credit, while the Westham Island
team and and the Hibernians are
tied at second place with three
points, with the Celtics occupying tho
cellar position.

that now he opposes one. As a matter of fact, the government ot Sir

that there was no need of a plebiscite. Consequently Its partisans today ean in no way blame the secretary of state if he now advocates

British Columbia Largely Represented nt International Dry-1*arming
Congress at Lethbridge,
LETHBRIDGE, Alta., Nov. 5 ���
British Columbia was very largely
represented at the International Dry
Farming Congress and Exposition
held here, and besides carrying away
a provincial sweepstake for boxed
fruit and a sweepstake prize for the
best potatoes, which was won by
D. Matheson of Armstrong, they carried 3. other prizes, comprising one
special, sixteen firsts, sixteen seconds and five thirds, and one commendation in a class in which there
were six awards.
The handsome $450 silver trophy
cup, donated by the government of
Manitoba, through Hon. George
Lawrence, minister of agriculture,
was awarded to the British Columbia provincial exhibit for the excellent display of boxed fruit, and most
favorable comment was made upon'
the manner In which Mr. J. W. Brandrith, superintendent of the British
Columbia exhibit, installed a large
display of fruit and vegetables.
There was no doubt that many more
prizes would have been captured had
British Columbia entered the provincial exhibit, it being a non-competitive and the jury of awards in
granting a special trophy did so in
recognition of its merits.
In the classes of vegetables and
fruit whenever the entry was made
by the British Columbia growers,
one or more prizes were taken. The
fruit prizes were given largely to
Armstrong and Salmon Arm.
The special awards for the best!
district display, a Lethbridge Board)
of Control trophy, was captured by
the Nelson Board of Trade.
There was a very liberal attendance of delegates from British Columbia, Hon. Price Ellison, minister
of agriculture; W. E. Scott, deputy
minister of agriculture; B. M. Wins-
low, secretary of the Fruitgrowers'
Association of Victoria, and Hon.
Hewitt Bostock, of Ducks, heading
the delegation.
In addition to these there were
registered: Mayor Bleasdale, of
Crow's Nest; J. J. Campbell, Nelson;
James Cowper, Grand Forks; James
Compton, Creston; W.Cunningham
New Westminster; P. E. French,
Salmon Arm; E. R. Foster, Spar-

Cranbrook; Jas. Johnstone, Nelson;
C. O. Rodgers, Creston, L ,F. Stobart,
Kamloops; W. T. Stavln, Kamloops;
Dr. Dixon, Kelowna, and R. Walms-
ley,  Creston.
Among the delegates of the Women's congress who were registered
were: Mrs. E. M. Hutcheson, Victoria; Mrs. Hams, Victoria; Mrs.
Rodgers, Creston; Mrs. P. Lund,
Cranbrook; Mrs. McKechnie, Vancouver; Mrs. Taplln, Kaslo; Mrs. Mildred Twiss, Kaslo, and Mrs. Watt,

| The B. C. Agricultural Association
| has the gratifying announcement to
;make to the people of Victoria that
'the exhibition for 1912 has resulted
J in a handsome financial profit of
inearly ten thousand dollars. Last
year there was a paltry cash balance
of $784; this year the association
has $7126 at the bank, outstanding
credit accounts for $1222 and now
buildings worth $1747. In 1911
takings at the gates and the grandstand amounted to but $8424, while
this year that sum has been doubled.
Judgment has been reserved by
Mr. Justice Martin in the Admiralty
Court In the action brought against
the Inland Navigation Company of
Seattle by the owners of the tug
Noname for $37,000 damages on account of the sinking of the tug in
collision with the steamer Iroquois ,
off the Fraser river in October last
year. In cross examination, Mr.
Russell Thornton, chief engineer of
thc Iroquois, admitted that the
steamer was travelling full speed tn I
fog. The blast by the Noname and [
that vessel's appearance out of the
fog were practically simultaneous.
The moment he heard the blast he
rang for half speed and immediately
afterwards, for full speed astern. "I i
knew at once that, If the other boat ���
did not back Its engines, there would
surely be a collision," witness observed.
Despite the falling off ln the passenger traffic on the' local lines of
the B. C. Electric Company during
October, the total of the number of
passengers carried by the company
for the first ten months of the year
Shows a large Increase over the corresponding period of last year. For i
October a total of 887,729 passengers were carried, compared with
756,634 ln October a year ago, but
as compared with the month of September the returns shov a falling
oft. The Increase for the ten
months' period, however, over that
of the same time last year was 2,-
195,281 or thirty per cent, the total being 8,881.145 compared with
6,685,864 last year.
During the past month the total
returns of shipping, foreign and
coastwise, show that a grand total
of 1017 vessels have entered and departed with a grand total tonnage of
791,667 tons. This is 60 vessels and
60,138 tons In excess of the average for the first six months of the
customs year which ended in September.

Vanstone & Rogers, the well known
Importers of pure bred draught stallions. He speaks ln glowing terms
of the country and the crops, which
were splendid, but are ln great part
yet ln the fields, the work of threshing being very backward. From appearances the colt Mr. Crozier has
brought back with him will hold
his own with anything yet brought

father of Malcolm Stewart, Jr., tbe
head stableman of the Colony Farm
here, the transaction being the result

NEW YORK, Nov. 6.���Advocates of woman suffrage were delirious with joy today. Four out of
five states carried yesterday for
amendments striking the word
"male" out of the state constitution.
One state, Wisconsin, rejected suffrage yesterday. Four approved,
Arizona, Oregon, Kansas and Michigan, bringing the total of states
where women have all the rights of
men up to ten.
The First Annual
Dispersion Auction
Pure'Bred Breeding Stock

Under instructions from Dr. C. hi.
Doherty I will sell by public auction,
on the premises, The Colony Farm,
Coquitlam, on Tuesday, the
12th. day of November 1912
at 1:30 o'clock p.m., the undermentioned pure-bred Holstein Fresian
cattle and Clydesdale and Hackney
horses. This i3 a rare opportunity
given by the government to the farmers of British Columbia to secure at.
their own price and at their own
doors, young breeding stock of the
very best strains procurable. No
trouble or expense has been spared in
the selection of the sires and dams ot
the young stock and they have been
gathered in from all over the American continent, and the fact that these
cattle and horses having captured

be proof enough that there ls nothing
better to be secured.
