Now in Good Working Order���New
Text Books Replace Those
Previously Used.
With the exception ot Annacis
Island school, which has been closed
owing to lack of support, all the
schols of Delta are now in full
working order. Canoe Pass -school,
tiie opening of which was postponed
owing to the teacher appointed not
turning up, resumed scholastic duties
this week, under the charge of Miss
Hood, of New Westminster.
Some changes have taken place In
the school books this session, as
compared with those used the previous- session. With regard to Canadian history, "The Elementary History of Canada," by I. Gammell, B.A.,
replaces that by Miss l.awson. The
former Is stated to be more accurate
and the matter put in a more interesting form than the latter text book.
The "Dominion School Geography," giving In part 1, the principles
of geography, and ln part 2, the geography of the continent, Is now
used instead of the "New Canadian
Geography." Both books are excellent compilations but the one now
adopted lays more stress on physical geography, which is more suitable for school children than the
political aspect emphasised ln the
one replaced, the latter, perhaps, being more adapted for "children of
a larger growth."
Another book, "How to Be
Healthy," by J. Halpenny, M.A., and
Lilian B. Ireland, has been adopted
ln place of Stowell's "Essentials of
Health," the former being of a more
practical nature in dealing with the
subject of the care of health in the
individual, than the latter, which
gives a more theoretical knowledge
of anatomy. ,

In view of the recent gratifying
success of Delta exhibitors of sheep
at the Vancouver show,, attention
may be drawn to the last bulletin
(No. 12) Issued this year by the
Minister of Agriculture, on "Sheep
Husbandry ln Canada," by J. B.
Spencer, B.S.A.
It has been Issued "with the object of encouraging a revival of the
sheep industry, which, for some time
back, has not been progressing as
rapidly as might be wished, especially
In view of the fact that many districts In Canada are eminently suitable for the profitable pursuit of
this branch of animal husbandry. It
will also he most useful as a means
of supplying Information regarding
the breeding and care of sheep, a
subject on which enquiries are being
constantly received from all parts or
the Dominion."
The bulletin has been published
at considerable expense, with the
valuable assistance of several successful raisers of sheep, sheep buyers,
wool dealers and woollen manufacturers throughout the Dominion, it
ts beautifully illustrated with numerous photographic reproductions
which are well worth framing

Owing to an accident to one of
the timbers in the dyking operations
at Westham Island, this week, there
lias been some delay in the completion of the work. Mr. E. M. Edwards, of the Elliott Co.. drainage
engineers, was at the island this
week, ln connection with the quarters of the J. W. Pyke dyking dredged
and he states that work will be resumed this week and the whole project completed in the course of another week or so.

will have an office on the grounds
during the fair and for several days
before it opens.
The new Horse Show building,
which will be thrown open to the
public during the fair, will be dedicated by Hon. Price Ellison, Minister
of Agriculture, If he accepts the invitation tendered him. The minister Is a lover of horses as well as
being keenly interested in the success of the exhibition, and there ls
little question but he will grace the
occasion with his presence.
Farmers and stock growers who
have entered their prize aniaials at
the Provincial Exhibition In New
Westminster on October 1 to 5, need
have no fear for the care of their
stock. At the last meeting of the
R. A. & I. Society executive, two
veterinarians were appointed to look
after the stock on the grounds, and
their services will be at the disposal
of any exhibitor. Or. H. W. Jake-
man and Dr. S. J. Moffett, two well-
known veterinary doctors of this city,
were the men selected  for the task.
Threshing Now Nearing an End���Potatoes Affected by Canker in
Some Sections.
Threshing operations throughout
Delta ls now In active progress,
In some parts, such as Westham Island, being finished, and in others,
another week should see the great
bulk of the crops harvested, always
providing a continuance of fine
weather. Iu Crescent Island, threshing is well advanced, one fanner,
Mr. John Gilchrist, having managed
to get his crop of oats threshed before the rain could  do any damage.
The Harris Brothers, Crescent

under oats, have been busy threshing
this week and Ehould ba through
within another week.
Although the Delta does not appear to have suffered so much from
potato blight or canker as some other
parts of British Columbia, the disease has been more or less prevalent
in certain sections, and there is no
doubt that the supply of good potatoes will not be so large as anticipated a month ago.
A notice has been issued this week
by the Board of Agriculture, advising farmers to watch for symptoms
of canker and to take necessary precautions.

���The climate here has two extremes
of summer and winter. In some
parts there Is frost all the year
round. It's never safe to go far
from home without your fur coat.

On Monday, Labor Day. duck-
shooting commenced throughout the
Delta, and many new sports visited,
and old sports re-visited. Ladner, In
pursuit of the game for which the district Is famous.
The sport obtained appears to have
been generally very good. In Ladner district, the Albion Cannery district and Westham Island, good
shooting was procured on Monday
and during the week. Over the
local marsh, near the Ladner wharfs,
ducks were plentiful, especially mallards and pintails.
Accurate information as to the
number of birds shot was not obtainable, hut some good baes were
reported on Monday. The following
are a few of the bags of some of
the local sports: F. Oliver, 36; E.
Bawn, 10; Tom Jordan, 30; Rowley,
Wilson and C. Gifford, 32; L. Gifford,   15;   Dave  Leary,   31.

At the New Westminster'market
Friday the supply of potatoes was
rather less than last week, prices
averaging $16 to $17 a ton, or 75
cents a sack. There was a brisk demand for spring chickens at 20 cents,
and hens at 18 cents. Ducks were
not too plentiful and averaged from
18 to 20 cents. The price of eggs
has remained practically unchanged
for several weeks, namely 40 cents
wholesale and 45 cents retail. Flsh
prices were about the same as last
week, and as yet no Alaskan fish appear to have invaded the Canadian
markets. Tlle prices of meat were as
follows: Mutton, loins, 20 cents;
front quarter, 18 cents; leg, 25 cents;
pork, front quarter 18 cents, leg 20
cents; beef, round steak 20 cents;

of Montreal, last September.
Two   witnesses   stated   that   they
saw Dean in an automobile with four
other men, one of whom was Identified  as   being   McNamara,   who   was
driving,  and  another, sitting  in  tho
front seat with him, as being Martin
Powell.    The car was proceeding towards   Vancouver   on   the   morning
following the bank robbery.     It was
going slow,  and  as  it   was  between
j eight and nine o'clock In the niorn-
! Ing, every opportunity was given the
i witness to identify the men.
This was the most essential evl-
1 deuce given during the preliminary
I hearing In  the morning.
At    the    afternoon    session,    Wit-
I nesses    were    called,   who   lived   on

(Prom The British Columbian.)
Construction of the first section of
the Fraser river jetty at Steveston
to improve the ship channel will be
completed well within the time limit
of a year, according to the statement
of officials of the Sinclair Construction Company, New Westminster, to
whom the contract was awarded. The
contract calls for the completion of
the work before the end of next
April, but the finishing touches will
be put on the big project several
weeks before the expiration of the
time limit.
The pile driving sub-contract, let
to the Fraser River Pile Driving Co.,
of this city, will be completed within
a month, although at the present
time, the pile driver that has been on
the jetty job is now operating on the
Scottish-Canadian cannery at Steveston. When the cannery contract is
finished, and a spur at present under construction at the British Columbia Corporation completed, both
pile drivers with their crews will be
jiut back on the letty project so that
the piles will be all driven hy the
early part of next month at the
Plans for the jetty call for a single
row of piles for 3100 feet directly
out from Carry Point, then for a
double row of piles for another 3800
feet. There is an eight-foot centre
on the piles which will will be connected by timber caps. From the
caps planks three Inches by twelve
inches will be sunk into the bottom
vertically, thus making a sort of
���wall. The crevesses formed between
the plunks will be closed also. On
either side of this wall, brush mattresses, two feet thick, and varying
ln width from 25 to .5 feet, are being sunk, and weighted down -with
large quantities of rock. BriiBh and
rock are to be dumped in between
the double wall. The reinforcements
of the brush mattresses are so placed
that the sheet piling, or walls, are
materially strengthened.
The jetty, when completed, -will
confine the ship channel, as the
river's sweep will be directed
through a narrower course, the current flushing the 3ilt far out Into
the Gulf of Geoigla. Work on the
construction of the jetty was commenced early last April. Forty men
are now on the job, but taking into
consideration the workmen employed at the rock quarries and slashing
the large quantities of brush that are
needed for the mattresses, something
over seventy-five men are working
on the project.
Alberni Surveyor Is Given Contract
to Run Surveys on Vancouver
ALBERNI, Sept. 5.���The contract
for th$ right of way surveys for the
Canadian Northern Pacific Railway
has been let to Mr. George A. Smith,
P.L.S., of Alberni, and that gentleman has orders to rush the work
right through from Alberni to Cowichan lake, so that the grading can
begin at the earliest possible date.
Mr. Smith has left for Victoria to
get the plans and will shortly put
a large force of men into the field
for the purpose of completing the
work which has been placed in his
hands with as little delay as circumstances will permit.
The line will be brought along
the Alberni Canal to China creek
and up that stream to a point near
where Cox lake empties into China
creek. The line then strikes Alberni on a high level, swings across
Dry creek and neros; the E. & N.
railway truck on a high level briflge.
From this point the approach to Alberni will be either along Gertrude
street or Elizabeth street.
As soon as the work on the right
of way as far as Alberni is complete.! it ia understood that thc section from this place to Comox lake
will be taken in hand, and that there
will be practically no stop in the
programme until the entire island
line of the Canadian Northern Pacific is finished. This will bring
Alberni into a commanding position
with regard to the central portion
of Vancouver island and will do
much to promote the settlement of
the entire valley. The next two or
three years should witness more advancement Tor Alberni than all the
time which has gone before.

In Western Alaska and Many
New Canneries.
SEATTLE, Sept. 5.���W. D. Crawford, secretary of the Puget Sound
Salmon Canners' Association, has
given out figures that place the estimate of the 1912 pack of Alaska,
Columbia river and Puget Sound at
4,227,000 cases. He estimates the
pack to be distributed as follows:
Alaska, 3,500,000; Columbia river
300.000, and Puget Sound, 427,000.
The Alaska pack is the largest on
record and the reason is due to the
extra large catches in Western
Alaska, and tho establishment of
many new canneries. The total
pack from the three districts is
about 600,000 cases less than it was
last year.
ST. JOHN, N.B., Sept. 5.���The
value of building permits issued ln
St. John in 1910 showed a large increase over the figures for 1909, and
for 1911, the value was nearly three
times as great as in 1909, while the
figures for the first seven months
of this year show an increase of
nearly fifty per cent, over those for
the like period last year. Another
excellent barometer Is found in the
bank clearings, which have increased
$4,320,252 in two years. There are
four more banking offices now than
there were two years ago. Turning
to the value of exports by steamships in the winter port season, it is
found that there was an increase
from $24,030,007 in the season
1910-11 to $32,511,806 in the season of 1911-12. There are many
other equally substantial evidences of
solid growth. Not since the period
following the great fire has there
been so great a demand for,labor in
St. John as at the present time.

Back to Toronto from his trip to
the Pacific Coast, Hon. W. J. Hanna
told the newspaper interviewers that
it was no novelty to him, as he had
been as far as Vancouver four times
before. The progress noted each
time, however, in the development of
the western cities was marvelous.
He was not prepared to affirm that
the phenomenal progress of Vancouver was due especially to the assessment system there, which Inclines towards the single tax idea to
the extent of, farming improvements
as compared with the assessment on
the actual land. The provincial secretary said: "I heard the views of
men who ordinarily ought to know,
and there seems no agreement as to
how will the system make out."
At Fort William he was much
pleased by the work of the men on
the prison farm, who are doing their
time by clearing land. They will
have cleared 200 acres by the end of
the autumn. Four hundred acres
has bec:: added by the government
to the prison reserve, giving ft a
total of 1000.

Richmond Council Urged to Prepare
for Development Predicted for
STEVESTON, Sept. 5.���The question put up to the Richmond council
yesterday was Are Lulu and Sea
Islands to become the site of an industrial and residential city? Officially the municipal fathers dodged
the issue, refusing to commit themselves. As private citizens, however,
they make no secret of their faith
in a rosy future for the islands in
the Fraser mouth.
The subject was brought up by a
letter from Dr. A. A. King, coroner
at Ladner. The doctor^ asked that
the council take steps at once to secure the widening of the No. 5 and
No. 9 roads to 80 feet. Both roads
run from water to water and both
enter the vicinity of Woodward's
Landing where the doctor asserted,
there would soon be a growing town-

the council to require of properfy
owners anything greater than 66
feet for a street, but that it would
be glad to consider a petition from
property owners that the thoroughfares be widened to 80 feet.
AGASSIZ, Sept. 2.���The four hundred Indian hop pickers gathered at
Agassiz for the season's operations
demonstrated their lordly independence of the white man by going on
strike for better pay last week, when
the hop picking commenced. This is
a customary procedure with the red
men and the officials of the B. C.
Hop Company here are not greatly
concerned, affirming that the pickers
will be back to work in a day or two.
The Indians demand $1.25 a box as
the reward for their labor. The company will pay, as last year, $1.00 a
box for picking ordinary hops, and
$1.25 a box for tent hops. Of the
latter, the quantity is small. The
company state that these are the
prices being paid at Chilliwack,
where picking is in full swing, and
they consider that it is a fair remuneration.
Was Pioneer Settler in New Westminster���Interesting   Memories
of Early Days.
(From the British Columbian.)
Mr. John McNab. one of the early
settlers of New Westminstei, will
leave this evening for his old home
in Nova Scotia where he will spend
some time visiting old scenes and
renewing old acquaintanceship.
Mr. McNab came to New Westminster in March, 1886, from Nova
Scotia. In the summer of that year
he was appointed to take charge of
the Northern fisheries from Alert
Bay to Naas river. In April, 1887,
tbe following season, he issued the
first licenses to the Naas Indians.
He recalls that at that time Timothy
Herrlck was the first to procure a
license after Mr. McNab has seized
his boat and net which were returned to him.
An interesting event in Captain
McNab's life here was his capture
by six Indians while he was on his
way from Naas Harboi to Skeena
river, about Sept. 1st, 1887. The
Indians put him In a canot md he
was taken to Klncoleth, a i_tm Indian town, where he was brought he-
fore the chief and his council. They
demanded from him all the money
he had received for licenses to fish
on the Nans river, the total amounting to $160. While the Indians were
debating the propriety of using force
to obtain the money Captain McNab slipped away in his little boat.
In 1891 Mr. McNab received the
appointment of Inspector of Fisheries for the Province, which position he resigned ln 1903. Hi was
nppointed officer in charge of the
Bon Accord hatchery in November,

In a few days the series of Fall
Fairs throughout the Fraser Valley
will commence and will continue
throughout the Fall to provide
amusement in more abundance than
ever before to the residents of the
communities where the exhibitions
are held. Of course, the big attraction of the year will be the Provincial Fair at the Royal City, bigger

Park and Kent, their red letter day
being the twelfth of this month. The
Central Park fair will run two days
while that at Kent will exetnd until
the fifteenth. On Sept. 19, 20 and

Police   Chief   Derby  Attributes  En*
tire Series of Fraser Valley
Bobberies to Same Men.
(From  The  British Columbian.)
Three men who travel by night in
an automobile have been causing no
end of trouble in the Fraser Valley,
according to the statement of Mr.
Derby, chief of police of the Chilliwack force, who was in the city a
few days ago, when he dropped Id
at the local provincial police office
ln the Land Registry Building. These
same three men, in the opinion of
Chief Derby, will not cease their efforts until they have made a haul
sufficiently large to pay them for all
the trouble they have put tiiemselves
to during the past few weeks.
Within a period of thirty days a
surprising number of safes have
been blown up or tampered with in
the New Westminster district. Traces
have been left or the men actually
seen, which lead the police officers
to believe that in each instance three
men who always make good their
escape in an auto are responsible.
The first robbery to actually take
place within the jurisdiction of Chief
Derby occurred at Harrison Mills,
when the Kllby store was entered
and relieved of about $150 ln merchandise, a week ago last Monday.
Clues pointed to the fact that three
men   were  Implicated  In the affair.
Tuesday morning at ten minutes
after two o'clock, the driver of a
milk wagon at Langley came upon
an auto lying alongside the road,
which was without headlights. As
the driver approached, two men
jumped Into the machine, and the
chauffeur shot the black car down
the road into the fog.
The door of the safe at the firm
of Barritt & Banford, butchers, in
Chilliwack, was blown off by a nitroglycerine charge last Wednesday
morning. The explosion was heard
at 2.10 a.m. In this Instance an
auto was seen by a passerby a few
minutes beforei who noted the blacK
car waiting a few yards down the
street from the butcher shop, where
a tall man was leaning against the
entrance, partially concealed by the
inky blackness of the shadows. One
hundred and fifty dollars ln cash and
cheques were secured in this robbery.
Thursday morning, at 2.10 a.m., a
sharp explosion frightened away
three men from the general store
of H. V. Parr, at Cloverdale. Traces
were found in the morning of an
automobile, the tracks corresponding
with those discovered In the other
Chief Derby connects the same
trio of men with the safe-cracking
episode at the Royal Theatre, this
city, when the robbers were frightened away by the explosion which was
heard several rods distant. That the
men are amateurs, Chief Derby says
is pointed out by the clumsy manner
in which they have set to work ln
each case to blow off the safe doors,
the concussion of the explosion waking up the surrounding neighborhood. He credits the same gang
with a number of tbe smaller robberies that have taken place In the
district during the past few months

which it runs by gravity on to a
set of screens which separate it into
three classes of material, each being
run into a separate bin. The outlets
of these bins are high enough to
allow wagons to drive underneath
the spouts. The bunkers handle 60
yards of gravel per day and cost
$200. It does the work of a mechanical screening plant costing

of Last Voar's���Puget Sound
(From The British Columbian.)
Preliminary figures pl2.ee the season's pack of the Columbia River,
Ore., at 299.500 cases "as they run."
Last year's pack "as they run" totalled about 425,000 cases or 340,-
000 full cases. While exact figures
are not yet available for the pack of
the canneries on Puget Sound packers estimate that the total output to
date is somewhere between 450,000
and 500,COO cases.
Many salmon canning concerns in
Alaska are closing their plants as a
result of the low prices which the
big interests placed upon canned
flsh this season. Many packers cannot produce the flsh at the 65 cent
quotation placed upon pink salmon,
to say nothing of making a profit.
Rumors were heard in salmon canning circles that the attention of the
department of justice has been called to the method by which opening
prices of canned salmon were made
