The business of the ferry has in-

ANNUAL WESTHAM RAFFLE.
POINT GREY NEWS.
EBURNE, Point Grey, Dec. 17.���
The success of the Wilson road wid-
i.iii-- petition is temporarily hindered by a loss of the petition, which I
had been widely signed, and by the
statement of one of the signers, Mr.
T. E. Larney, that he will question
its validity if it is  found and pre-'
��� ntcd to the council. The petition
ivas a step toward adding seven feet
.. each side to the width of Wilson
road from Lulu Island tramline
east.
Reeve Churchill and Councillor
l.ii'klin have been delegated by the
council to investigate a bill for
maintenance work on streets in
Shaughnessy Heights, during the
months of September and October,
pul in by the Canadian Pacific Rail-'
way. The amount of the account is
$1409.53." I

asked   to   reimburse   eight  to   ten |
nut-payers  who  assisted  the   Point
Grey brigade in extinguishing a fire]
al  ihe  Lulu   Shingle  Mill  at  Lulu
Island, in Bridgeport, Thursday last, j
As tlie fire occurred  in  Richmond,
the council thought it only just that
the  firelighters  should   be  paid   by
that municipality.     Councillor Well
and  Reeve  Churchill   will  approach
the  liichmond  council   with  regard;
to the matter.
The annual Westham Island raffle
of turkeys and geese was held o?
the 'Faulk farm, Wednesday evening
over a hundred men taking part.
In keeping with their reputation
for doing everything well, the Islanders entertained their guests splendidly, and even those who did not win,
came away perfectly satisfied with
the fine night of genuine fun.
Over one hundred ibirds���turkeys,
geese, ducks and chickens���were
handed over to the lucky ones, and
though the I.adner contingent did
not make as big a hand as last year
a select few gat quite a nice lot of
.at birds, and Mr Wm. Innis-brought
home the prize turkey of the island,
a thirty pound bird.
Messrs. John Savage, Wm. Savage
and Geo. London were the committee
in charge, and, with the assistance of
other Westham men, put up an evening's entertainment and refreshments

NEW WESTMINSTER  MARKET.
ALASKA  RAILROAD.
i"i"<l I- Subject of Spirited Debate
in    (Tutted    Sl'ites    House or
Representatives.
WASHINGTON,   Dec.   18.���Spirit-
bate in i'lT* House marked yos-
I j   the  begiiiu.ng of consldera-
of the    bill for a    government
��ned railway in Alaska.
Advocates of tiie measure descrlb-
' I ngth the project to build 733
les of railroad from the southern
oast   of   Alaska   to   the   rich   coal
elds  in  the  Interior  while its op-
onenta argued that the cost would
11 much greater than the territories
'niralttee   had   estimated   that  the
Same was not worth the candle."
New Westminster's market was
au exceedingly busy scene Friday,
naturally the big demand being for
poultry. As a consequence pork and
veal was a trifle weaker. There
was a good supply of eggs, butter]
and vegetables, prices changing little ln the week.
Turkeys, of which there was only
a fairly good supply, sold at from
32 to 35 cents, alive, and from 35
to 4 0 cents, dressed. There was a
large offering of geese and ducks,
(���specially live birds. Both sold at
practically the same prices, 18 cents
to 22 cents, according to condition.
Dressed geese brought 30 cents.
Veals sold at from 13 to 10 1-2
cents and pork at from S  cents to
10 cents for large, and 11 cents to
11 1-2 cents for smalls. K. ,1. Leslie, of Port Guichon, bought twelve
fine young Yorkshires for feeders,
paying $6.60 each. Two or three
hogs were offered that were of the
poorest quality seen in the market,
in many a day. No one appears to
���.vain   them at any price.
Eggs sold at 55 cents and butter
at 4u cents, there being good supplies of both,
Of course, with the nearness of
Christmas, there was greater trading in flowers than usual, and the
offerings were good.
There will be a special Christmas
market next Tuesday.

HINDUS SENT
UP FOR TRIAL
Preliminary Hearing of Cases Against
East Indians Occupied Several
Days in Police Court.
COUNCIL HOLD    PLANNING TO     MESS BENSON
SHORT SESSION ASSISTGROWERS       IS MARRIED
No   Especial  Business  Transacted at
.Saturday's Regular Meeting of
Municipal Fathers.
The case against the four Hindus,
Sutali Singh, Udam Singh, Benn-an
and Jewel, who were arrested last
week on the "charge of robbing Patagen and Sunder Singh, near Colebrook on the evening of Sunday, December 7, has occupied Magistrate
McKee's court for several days, and
on Thursday .he accused were sent
uji  for trial.
Hearings were heard on three days
and on each occasion the town streets
were dotted with the turbaned Indians. Also came to Ladner counsel
from Vancouver and New Westminster, Mr. Leon 'Ladner, of the former
city, appearing for the defence, and
Mr. G. L. Cassady for the complainants.
All   of  the  men   implicated  have
known each other for years, having j
for at least five years worked within
three miles of each  other.      Their'
testimony was conflicting,   and   on'
this account Magistrate McKee sent
the prisoners up for trial.
One of the witnesses���Bowgan
Singh���states that he and Nathie,
another witness, were alone in thpir
shack with the complainants, at supper, and all the evening of Sunday,
December 7. Patagen said there
were four all day and five for supper.
Nathu and Sunder Singh both say
there were six for supper. Patagen
says he counted out his money and
showed it to accused that evening.
Sunder Singh says no. Bowgan and
Kabale say they did not see the accused that night. So much for the
testimony of  witnesses.
It is claimed 'by the complainants
that they went out on the Sunday
evening to give the money to Mr.
Enderby for deposit to their credit
in  the bank.
It is probable that the accused will
ask for a speedy trial in New Westminster, as ithey feel sure of their
defence.
The regular session of Delta municipal council last Saturday was a
rather short one, there being no
pspecial business to be transacted.
Several communications were read,
among them being one from Mr, A.
E. Baker, submitting subdivision
plans of his Scott road farm property, for approval. The plan shows
division into ten-acre tracts. The
request of the W.C.T.U. for the use
ol tiie council chamber for the holding of the regular monthly meetings
of the society was granted.
The residents of Guichon townsite
petitioned council, asking that a
street light be placed opposite the
Catholic churoh. The matter was
referred  to  the light committee.
The following accounts were
passed for payment:

MARKET FOR EBURNE.
SECESSION NOT FAVORED.
Point  Grey  and Richmond Board of
Trade Will Approach Harbor
Commissioners.
EBURNE, Point Grey, Dec. 16.���
The North Fraser Harbor Commissioners will be approached by the
Point Grey and Richmond Board of
Trade with the purpose of securing
pel-vision to hold a public market
once a week, on a date other than
that on which the New Westminster
market is held, in a warehouse
which it Is undertsood the harbor
board will have erected in the near
future. A resolution to this effect
was passed unanimously at the meeting of the Board of Trade on Monday evening.
It was the unanimous opinion of I
the members of the board that such |
a market, would be liberally pat- I
ronized by residents of the district, |
and that the demand would warrant
farmers from all over the Fraser I
Valley  bringing  their  produce here.
The feeling of the organization [
seemed to be that a market at
Eburne should be advocated rather
than one at the foot of Fraser avenue in South Vancouver, Ihe estt-ib-
lisbment of which has been the sub-|
ject of agitation by the South Vancouver Board of Trade during the
past year.
Eburne Board of Trade Spurns Offer
,    of Inclusion From Shaughnessy
Heights.
EBURNE, Point Grey, Dec. 17.���
The invitation of Shaughnessy
Heights to join with it in seceding
from Point Grey was spurned at the
meeting of the Board of Trade on
Monday evening, when a resolution
was passed unanimously declaring
that the organization was opposed to
the step as it would militate against
the commercial interests of the municipality and the consummation of
the Greater Vancouver project.
With Eburne opposing the secession proposal, there is a possibility
that D. L. 472 ratepayers will also
take a stand against it. They will
hold a meeting to consider the matter this evening in the Oak street
school house, corner of Oak street
and Twenty-fourth avenue.
A striking example of the necessity
of improvements in the methods ol
cleaning Timothy seed can be seen
in the following figures, which are
published by the Dominion Seed
Laboratory, Calgary, where a number of samples were tested for farmers and  merchants.
Tiie samples in almost every case
were of exceptionally fine quality ami
bad they been properly cleaned would
rank almost first on the market.
The suitability of many parts of
Alberta and British Columbia for
growing Timothy seed is unquestionable, and lt is the intention of the
Government, through the Seed
Branch, to assist farmers in their
methods of handling and marketing
their seed.
Last year the Dominion Seed
Laboratory at Calgary examined 317
samples of Timothy, of which 155
were received from farmers. 135 of
these came from Alberta. 11 from
British Columbia, 8 from Manitoba,
and 1 from the United States.
Of 317 samples received 27S were
examined for weed seeds and graded
as follows:
Extra No. 1, 7; No. 1, 23; Xo. 2,
99;   No.  3,  54;   rejected,   95.
Samples containing more than 80
noxious weed seeds or a total of
over 400 of all kinds of weed seeds
per ounce are rejected, and are prohibited from sale, under section 9
of the  "Seed  Control   Act."
Lanrbs quarters is by far the prevalent weed seed found in Western
grown Timothy, occurring in 2u4
of the samples. Rough cinquefoil is
next, being found in 138 samples.
Other common weed seeds are worm-
seed mustard, gentian, yarrow, blue-
eyed grass, pepper grass, tower mustard, evening primrose, western false
flax, 'ball mustard, curled dock and
catch fly. Many of these weed seeds
cou'ld be easily removed from Timothy by an ordinary tanning mill,
fitted with the proper sieves.
Farmers having Timothy seed are
invited to send samples to the Seed
Laboratory, Calgary, for grading, or
to receive information as to the
proper sieves to be. used for cleaning
their particular seed.
Sample bags in which the seed maybe sent, as well as further particulars in regard to taking and sending
samples, may be had by sending a
request to the above address.
Twenty-five samples of seed will
be tested free of charge for any one
party, after that, 25 cents a sample
is charged.
Hazelhursit,    the    beautiful     new
' Benson home,  was the scene of one
! of  the prettiest  weddings ever cele-
! -brated  in  Delta,   when   on   Tuesday,

! Benson,  was married  to Mr. Jas.  A.

i chene.    She    wore   an   embroidered
j veil, trimmed with orange blossoms,
land   carried    a   bouquet   .of   lovely
j bridal roses.    The bridesmaids wore
I gowns of pink and 'blue marquisette,
��� and  carried bouquets of carnations.
i The   bride's   going   away   gown   was
a navy iblue tailored  suit,   with  hat
to     match,     trimmed     with    burnt
orange.
The Benson residence was beautifully decorated for the occasion ln
green and white, the floral decorations being chrysanthemums. Immediately after the ceremony a splendid wedding breakfast was served,
mid late in the afternoon Mr. and
Mrs. McEachern left by auto for Vancouver amid showers of rice ami

McEnciii-rn will visit Mr. Me-
j Eachern's people in Prince Edward

It is Ihe first of a series of conferences on the International Fishery
Treaty and endeavors are being
made to reach an agreement, The
treaty was concluded some years
ago and was ratified by legislation
ot ihe Dominion parliament, but the

With a district map and a booklet
any prospective settler will be furnished with plenty of information
about any section he may desire to

emptors maps, these maps show
clearly all land divisions, particular
reference being made to the natural
districts, the noil, climatic conditions, lakes and rivers, settlements,
roads and so on. They are designed
to give tlie settler a comprehensive
and accurate idea of the country in

he may be attracted. Tlle subject

prepared by a departmental expert
and is presented in a bright readable form. Each booklet is replete
with illustrations showing the nature of the general countryside and
the progress already made in farming and ranching. No time is wasted In glowing "write-ups," the intention being to give a sane truthful story of what each division is
soiled for.
The Port Fraser divison is described as being v.-'l adapted in many
sections for mixed farming, with
large areas suited for grazing pur-
purposes. The illustrations show
that grain crops are grown in many
sections to advantage. It is claimed

REAL DESTINY
Hon.   \v.  ...   Ross  Announces That
1,700,000   Acres   ol'   Laud
Hnve Been Surveyed,
\ ANCOUVER, Dec. 18.��� In
Speeches before the Progress Club
and Ward VI Conservative Association yesterday afternoon and evening, Hon, VV. R, Ross, Provincial
Minister of Lands, deali with the
land po Icy of the administration,
thu problem oi settlement and what
*.v.is being don" iii tliis direction,
and Incidentally demolished the
criticisms of Mr, II. C. Brewster and
oilier Liberals directed against his
department.
Mr, itoss pointed out that colonization depended entirely on transportation.
it wa- imposslb e to colonize
without railways and the McBride
government had entered Into an extensive policy of railway construction. While the population of the
province bad lm reased BO per cent,
in thr last ten years it had noi been
a. rural population and this could
be expected without the operation of
railways, In the n< xl year or so
British Columbia, with the settlement of the farming areas, would
be enl ering upon Its r< al destiny.
The railways would give settlers
easy access to the lands and equal
facility   in   reaching   a   market.
While he was not there to make
any announcement Of policy on behalf of the government he felt safe
in Intimating that it would not be
long before tho government undertook some ample and strong policy
to attract farmers to the agricultural lands. This would be when the
railways were completed. It would,
he was sure, reflect to the profit
of the people of Vancouver.
Mr. Ross dwelt for some time on
"the wild statements of Mr. Brewster, which he, free from the trammels of responsibility, had made
concerning the government's land
policy." Mr. Brewster had said that
the land along the railway lines
had all been sold and that there
was none for the private settler. This
stateraenl the minister refuted, stating in addition that of the __(i,U00,-
UtlO acres, 93,000,000 were reserved
for pre-emption. Roads, bridges
and railway lines in certain districts
had lieen sources of revenue great
enough ;o keep the province from
the necossity of borrowing. As regards development In the survey
department he stated that there
were in the province 1,700,000
acres of land to which the pre-
eniptor could go today if he wanted
to,

sir   Richard   McBride  Gives  Greet*
ing.s mui Good Cheer to Fellow
Townsmen,
(From  The   Brllish   Columbian i
"1 say this. The people of New
Westminster need have no fear
about the present financial stringency. We have had our little business difficulties before and we have
lived through them. With your harbor development, the new channels
being formed iu your rMver, the
certainty of the railroads coming iu,
here and of their expansion northward to Alaska, the Imminence of
the Panama canal opening, there ls
no cause to be alarmed about the
future."
Thus Sir Richard McBride, K.C.
M.G., speaks to the people of his
native town this Christruastlde and,
in addition, wishes them well. He
was over on a Hying visit yesterday
and went off to Victoria again last
evening. As is hia custom he visited as many of his friends as possible
while here, In addition to calling
upon his mother.
Touching railroad development
Sir Richard slated that he had recently communicated with Mr. T. G.
Holt of the C. N. II. impressing
upon him the need of a speedy beginning upon the terminal work of
that road In New Westminster and
Vancouver, He laid special stress
upon the fact that owing to the lessened employment, which the municipalities could offer to their workmen, such terminal work, If undertaken speedily, would be of the
greatest   efficacy   now.
The Premier stated that tlie C. N.
R. authorities hnd replied that they
were bending every effort towards
making a beginning on this work,
but in view of the nature of the
terminal construction, many arrangements of great importance had
to be put in order before any start
was mad". However, they were doing their best to expedite matters,
