Into the roadside ditch, luckily with
uo serious eon sequence, to auyone
beyond a severe shaking up.
From information in tho hands or
the local sleuth, it appears that the
parties started for Ladner just after
dark, Saturday evening, ostensibly
to take in the picture show. Both
rigs were well loaded with youths.
and not long after the start a race
to Ladner was proposed, eagerly accepted, and the mad dash of over
a mile commenced. About this time
Mr. and Mrs. Robinson were" proceeding quietly in the same direction
when the inevitable collision occurred. Mr. Robinson's rig was
struck a glancing blow by the passing racers and his horse, taking
fright, bolted, throwing the occupants into the ditch and badly
wrecking the rig and harness. The
racing rigs continued on in their
tumultuous career and as luck would
have it the victims of the accident
picked themselves up unharmed beyond a few slight bruises. Constable Morgan is justly wrathful
over the incident and, as he knows
the names of the young scamps involved, it is likely that further developments may be looked for in
order to prevent a recurrence of
similar accidents.

rise in this commodity and also it

Installation of the machinery fo
the big plant of the B.C. Condensed

and by the end of the month it is
expected by officials of the concern
that the factory will be In actual
daily operation. Mr. C. Payne, secretary of the company, was in Ladner on Tuesday inspecting the machinery and superintending its
proper installation.
The completion of this factory
should mark an epoch in the history of the dairy farmer, who for
years has been compelled to send
his milk and cream by routes, devious and varied, to the markets of
Vancouver and New Westminster,
who will now be enabled to sell his
entire production to the new Industry, the management of which will
specialize in the manufacture of high
grade brands of condensed milk and
cream, and who will pay the going
market prices to the farmer, thereby
eliminating to a great extent the
tedious methods of hauling and shipping to outside points. The benefit
thus derived will be considerable

owners concerned might be approached to grant an easement of

board of trade of New Westminster

taken to obtain the grant of a right-
of-way from the property owners.
He pointed out that if the Richmond
engineer would supply a tracing of
the proposed road connection, they
would know precisely what owners
to approach. Councillor Foster explained bow the engineer's line had
followed the gazetted road from the
end of Ewen avenue direct westward
for one subdivision. Th'g will bring
the work of the committee down to
the interviewing of only a few property owners. The council will give
consideration to the request.
