At Saturday's council meeting after

regular business was (proceeded with.
The Reeve reported on the crushed

A number of accounts were passed
and council adjourned.
It is surely strange that in such
a district as Delta there should be
no fully qualified police magistrate
to attend to the administration of
justice. At the present time cases

anal 'which Is live months old, is the
property of 'Mr. E. S. Knuwlton. ot
Vancouver, and cost f.o.b. at point
of shipment, a thousand dollars, ana
the express charge-s were very heavy.
Mr. Richardson, manager of the
race stalbles at the Exhibition grounds
went to Vancouver anil took charge
of the colt and escorted him to l__d-
ner and eventually lo the racing
fltaibli'S, where he has already made
himself quite at home.
Mr. Knowltem "hopes to raise him
successfully and to use him for breeding purposes. His ancosti-y is of thu
iblueist descriptio.ns. anil It i.s expected
that he will grow to he a decided
acquisition  to   local  racing  stock.
Local Artists Stage, Excellent Comedy
Drama���lull   House  and  Enthusiastic Applause.
The ooimedy-drama "The Squire's
Daughter" was staged .in a most
creditalble manner on Friday eve-ning
of last week by the Ladner Amateur
Dramatic Society.
The hall was crowded for the occasion and there was not a dull moment in the entire play. The stage
management wag very good, and the
furniture was kindly loaned by Lan-
niiig,   Fawcett  &  Wilson.
The   folowineg   was  the  caste:
Squire   Hawkins C.  O. Lambert
Member of Congress.
Josiah  Brown B.   H. Weare

The dramatic society are to be congratulated on tihe excellent results accomplished, and the general public
will watch with interest for the announcement of the title of their next
public contribution.
People are looking forward to the
inauguration of the Vasey scheme,
which by means of stage connections
at Woodwards, will place Ladner hallf
an hour nearer to Vancouver and
New Westminster. The scheme looks
eminently feasible and all that is
necessary now is to arrange for the
Iboat connection which will be pexssibly
coasumated after the Transfer resume's  her  regular run.

H. T. Thrift, Mr. Lesson and iu,
McDuff, aJl oi the international Railway Company, had to say witn re-er-
ence to transportation matters in thu
Delta, <oid to d-SOvver what Kind of
concessions    the-   premioters   required.
As sunn as the minutes of me ia_i
"business session had been read, the
Reeve, after having ascertained that
the council were agreeable, invited
the gentlemen to adaress the board.
Mr. H. T. Thrift was the Iirst speaker.
He stated tnat the wish of the deputation was to rind as to whether the
council was willing to give their support to a railway, end bridge project for the Delta. The company he
represented had received a charter
two years ago, and the propositi.n
was to bu'ild feeder lines throughout
the district as necessity required.
The proposition was suported by old
country capitalists and practically unlimited funds were assured. At the
present time there was deposited in
the bank the sum of iHOO.OOO.OO, afld
other moneys would he forthcoming
as necessity required. The best-
known aapitailists of Vancouver were
interested in the prope>sit*ion and the
company's head office would be in
the wejst, not in England, which he
spose of as an advantage In ru.i-
rung   the   company's affairs.
The company had now rea.-h^d a
point where preliminaries Must be
closed and to avoid coming i.iuo ce n-
tlict with the B.C.E.R. .omp.i.iy the
internat.onal company wished to secure the permission of .he council
to utilize the dykes with a v.jw to
getting to New Westminster U i.-pid-
ly as possible. The company had
secured ample water Hgeits v UI in
160 miles of Lainer and p...' r w.-.s
available fur the development of from
300,000 to 500,000 horse-powor, Wi ie h
Ti-ould be sufficient for all lljht, power
and industries of the district for m*.ny
years to come. Engineers w>'e e.1-
ready employed and the . iniplny,
just as soon as the .preliminaries were
disposed of, was prepared to <o light
The plan in view Included the erection of a railway and trafac iiric'ge
at a point as near Dadner as possible, which would be free to the gen-
tdul public. Tiie company S ( Ian
also included the erection and iipe'H-
tion of a line of cars to Point Roberts.
Mr. Deeson was the next speaker.
He supported all that Mr. Th-ut I ad
said, and further stated :hat m.iii* rs
had developed very rapidly taring tie
past few weeks and the condition it
affairs called for prompt actio l. The
object of meeting the Delta council
had been to discover whether they
were  for or against  them.    The com-

pany  had   Investigated  several  different  propositions  suon   as  steam   and
monorail   systems  and   had   come   to
the conclusion  that the electric tram
was  the  most  serviceable  and  satisfactory   proposition.       The   company
j was not asking any kind of a bonus,
' simply   concessions   whieh   it  was  ln
! the  power of  the  council   to  give  ln

, tion facilities.

In connection With the .bridge project,   the   company   was   prepared   to
build the bridge, provided it was possible   to   do   so.    The   proper   survey
, had  not yet been  made  to determine
I whether it were feasible to build sueii
la  bridge.    There were   cases  in  districts such as this  where  it was im-
posible  to  find foundations for piers.
Such a  test   had .not loen   made  and
no   di-flcutl'ty   might   be   experienced,
tmt  there   was  always  that  phase  of
the question  to  be considered.    If  it
were  posible  to  build  such a  bridge,
the bridge would surely 'be built.
Reeve Oliver addressed the deputation briefly and in a practical manner. He stated that the people of the
district were anious for any proposition which would help them out on
transportation problems, and so far
as he knew no exposition would be
offered to the railway company. However, at the present time nothing
definite had been proposed and just
as soon as the company was ready
to come forward with a concrete
proposition, stating in writing what
they wanteel and what they were prepared to give, then the council would
immediately ascertain wihat powers
they had and do the best they could
to meet the company as far as was
consistent with the generail welfare
of the district. The council and the
people of Delta generally were juat
as anxious for transportation facilities aa the gentlemen who had addressed the aueiience were anxious to
secure concessions.
Mr. Leeson and Mr. Thrift both expressed themselves as satisfied with
the Reeve's view of the matter. Their
object had been to find out whether
the council was fa\ora'bly or unfavorably disposed towards them. They
did not, of course, feel Inclined to
show their hand if the pe-uple were
against them. They promised that
within a month a concrete proposition would be placed in writing before
the council.
They   then   thanked   the   Reeve   for
the courteous  hearing they  had   been
���-'iwn   and   retired.

The Delta Glee Club, or fi-fty voices,
will hold Its fifth sem'i-annual concert ln the McNeely Haill on the evening of Friday, February 9.
The club under the capable leadership of Mr. E. T. Calvert has become
quite   an   institution   in   Lidner  and
is always sure of large patronage.    A
most  delectable   programme  is 'being
'outlined,   emlbracing   the   choicest   of
'glees Interspersed by solos, duets and
instrumental  numbers.
I     Ladner may be la a somewhat out
i of the way place,  but within its borders   is   to  be    found     musical     and
dramatic  talent such as   would gTaue
any city in the land.    These combined   with   a  strong   community   spirit
result in a pleasing coalition of forces
for the gemeral gewid of the community and the  mutual  enjoyment of all.
At the approaching meeting of the
Board of Trade a delegation of seven
members  from the New West/minster
Bc-ard   of  Trade will   wait   upon   the*.
the   local   board   in   connection   with
transportation   matters.      The   objeut
of tihe delegation  is  to seek a closer
Union with Ladner and to aid in any
possible   manner  in   the  devolo-pment
of  the  resources  of   the  district.    In
an Interview  with a representative of
j the New Westminster Beiard eif Traelo
[ who has been closely allied with that
(institution   f.ir   some   years,    It    was
stated that In the matter, New West-
jminster was not actuated by any particular    desire   of   personal   advancement,  merely a de��sire  to benolit  the
���whole of the valley.    A line through
the   Delta  district   could   be  secured
without very much trouble and would
open  up a  large tract e>f country at
present   lying   practically  idle.    They
hope   with  Ladner  to  eventually  see
a   bridge   erected   aen-oss   the   Fraser
River   at   a   point  .near   Ladner  and
will rejoice with the Delta when that
Is accomplished.    But, if that proje-ot
were  found   to   be  feasible  and   were
.started  immediately, It would still be
I a  couple   eif  years     before    such     a
librldge would  be  available for traMc
I purposes.    The  district  by  that time
| would have developed very materially
as a result of quicker connection with
; the Royal City. ,
In  the  past  the  New Westminster
Board of Trade had demonstrated the
! fact that they were favorably disposed
te>wards   Delta    by    doing   strenuous
I work  in connection with the securin-j
'of   a    better   service   on   the   Oreat
| Northern line.    It Temained ye*t to he
shown  what Vancouver had done for
the   Delta   country.       Thr   Board   of
Trade was  interested in  the development of the whole of the Fraser Valley and  was worki.ng on the assumption that the wihoU- valley arose and
fell   together.    The   object  of  having
the   delegation    wait    on    the    Delta
hoard  was  to  find out just what the
Delta wanted and to as far as pissi-
ble   to   lend  aid   in  the  work  of  advancement.

the industry. Owing to the demand
for produce good prices had been
realised. The trade with the cities
and towns in milk and cream is daily
assuming larger proportions, and in
some locations the supply has been
far from eeiual to the demand. Much
���f the milk which formerly passee"
through the creameries, is being diverted to meet the cities needs, and
ta consequence,the make of butter is
ths province is decreasing. This, however, offers to the outlying districts
additional opportunity and incentive
to supply the butter that the near-by
sections find less profit in manufacturing. During the year the work of
ths association has been the continuance of the policy of previous years.

Minister's A-*Jrcss.
The Hon. Price E*��ison visited the
convention in the morning and wa��
at once called upon to address the
members. He stated, however, tha'
he would perfert to listen to their deliberations for a little before addressing them. After some of the preliminary business had been transacte*"
he delivered a short address of welcome, in the course of which he said:
"If we are going to make British Columbia a grsat agricultural country,
an.l we all say we are, then we must
have  more  agriculturists.     That  is a
worth of dairy product had to be imported into the province last year in
order to meet the demand of the consuming population, but 1 think thai
can be explained by the fact tha*
there are large areas of land suitable
for farming and darying In particular which are inaccessible on account
of the lack of transportation facilities, i think that with the increased
transportation aid we expect that
both ln the way ot railways ane'
trunk roads, we will at last coin-"
Into our own in this connection, and
that in addition to supplying all the
demands of the local population we
will become exporters of dairy produce to a very large extent. (Applause.) Statistics to which 1 have
generally referred are sufficient in
themselves to justify you and your
ceilleagues, the provincial government and the public as well as exerting more strenuously in the future
than has been done in the past every
effort toward extending and improving ths development of the industry
in the province, i understand tha'
the dairymen of the province together with the farmers are taking steps
to introduce into the province an infusion of pure bred stock from the
east for the purpose of improving the
standard of the stock of the province. 1 think that that is a work
to be commended and I am sure that
it will meet with the approval an'1
support of the department.
On Dairying.
In regaid to dariying particular^'
w�� know that it is as cheap to keep
a good animal as a poor one. Le*
me mention to you with regard especially   to   the  milk  supplies  that  are
land dresses of Mr. John Nunces, who
wore the Royal Stuart garb, and Mr.
John Bowsle in the tartan of th*
gallant "Forty-twa." Mr. D. Lamont
in the kilt and plaid of the MacDonald also showed prominently ir
the moving throng.
Mr. John Munro and Mr. Nei'
Fraser acted as M. Cs and a most
excellent programme was brought to
a close at 4 am. Every item throughout the whole proceedings was favorably commented upon and thu^
was brought to a close one of the
most successful entertainment of
the   season.

problem    that   the   government   ha# ,mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm^^^^^^^^^^^���^
been thinking about.    1 have been re- | required for our towns and citieB tho*
ferred to for a solution of the problem and 1 can tell you, gentlemen
that the task is not an easy one. There
are large numbers of people coming
to the province to take up farming,
but in many cases we find that they
are men Advanced in life. Some o**
them think that it is an easy proposition but 1 can assure them tha*
they will have no picnic. British Columbia must have more people of th��
farming class. In order to make that
possible the government is going to
try and open up the country so that
it will be easier for the settlers te
make connections with the cities and
other points. The man who has to go
out into the backwoods cannot stand
the strain long. The government of
British Columbia has spent a vas*
sum of money in the making of_good
roads because they realize that"good
roads mean practically everything to
the farmer. The farmers are no'
alone in ths cry for bsttsr road'
throughout the province. They have
the strong backing of ths motorists
who insist that something more
should be done at once toward making the country more passable than
it is today. And in that connection I
would just like to say that in the
province it is a much more difficult
task to make roads than it is in anv
of the other provinces of the Dominion on account of the nature of the
1 do not suggest that that should
be regarded as a barrier but I would
just like to keep it in mind when yon
make demands upon the governmen'
for wholesale appropriations for
Would Help Dairymen.
I can assure you gentlemen that we
are desirous of helping the dairymen
of the province at far as possible, but
1 bhoulel imagine from the looks of
you that you do not require much assistance. We have placed a new man
at the head of affairs in connection
with the work of the department in
the person of your secretary, Mr
Rive, and we are glad to know that
he is doing good work. The grea'
trouble of the department has beer
the getting of men who were qualified lor the work snd therefore, w��
are all the more gratified to learn of
the success of Mr. Rive. It was on account of the lack of properly qualified men in the country that mad"
it impossible for me to appoint a liv*��
stock commissioner. They tell m*"
there is not a good live stock commissioner in Canada and rather than
make a bad appointment I have not
made one at all. We are now negotiating with a Canadian gentleman at
Washington who might be able to fill
the bill if he will come. I wish te
congratulate the association upon the
success of its competitions. I congratulate the winners and hope tha'
the losers will take heart of grace ane"
do better next year. At the same time
I may as well inform you that the department has in mind the idea of increasing your annual grant from
$2500 to $3000. (Applause.) I air
glad indeed to see that you have ordered four carloads of live stock from
the east for the purpose of improving the stock of tha province. That is
a great work and I hops as time goer
on the practice will be followed to a
greater extent until the farmers o*"
the province are in a position to better their herds materially by the infusion of pure blood. The time ha��
come now when we wish to do better along the lines of dairying. It
is very important to the province because its development is now an integral part of the progress of th��
province. If there is anything I can
do to assist your organization I shall
always be glad indeed to do it, because I know that the department and i scene presented a perfect kaleido-
the government are more than anx-j scope of color. A Scotch reel, headed

because of the many reports to th��
government of late it was desme*"
advisable to appoint a commission
whose principal duty would be th��
investigation of the conditions generally. (Applause). Not that w��
would have you believe that we consider the dairymen of the provinc��
unsuitable for their work but rathe"
would we have you believe that th*>
matter is of importance all round an*1
that through the agency of this commission we will be able to discover
by what means not only the publi��
will be benefited but ths producer a��
well. We want the co-operation o'
your organization in this and other
work because it is only by that means
that any progress in the industry
can be made. It ls not desired te
strike at your investment. Far from

VICTORIA, Jan. Sl.-VThe annual
convention of the B. C. Fruit Growers' Association was opened yesterday
in the Unitarian Hall. Many Interesting addresses were delivered on
subjects of peculiar interest to fruit
growers, one of the leading of theBe
being the necessity for a greater exercise of co-operative work on the
part of tbe growers, which was spoken to learnedly by Mr. H. C. Atwcll of
Oregon and Senator W. P. Paulhamus
of Puyallup, Wash.
Reports of the past year's work
were submitted and adopted. Mr. R.
H. Agar of Summerland, presided.
At the evening session, which was
prolonged until 11 o'chick, there was
a keen discussion created over thc
appointment of delegates to the Dominion conference to be held at Ottawa. Delegates were appointed to
the conference last year in view of
the anticipation that the conference
would be held some time last year,
but that was rendered impossible on
account of the political situation. At
today's session a motion was made to
consider the appointment of new delegates and this met with immediate
opposition from Messrs. Brydon and
Maxwell 'Smith, who hail been deeded to represent the convention by ballot taken at the last meeting.
In view of the fact that thc minutes
of the last meeting, wherein the election referreel to wan recorded, had
been adopted, it was contended by the
delegates named that it was out of
order to consider the appointment or
election of substitutes. The chairman,
however, gave a rulkng on the subject
contrary to that opinion, which was
upheld by the convention, and as a result of nominations for the position
of delegates to go to Ottawa to attend
the Dominion confernce, the following
were elected;
Mr. W. F. Somers (for Vancouver
Island), Mr. J. JO, Metcalfe (for the
Lower Mainland), Messrs. <R. H. Agur
and W. C. Ricardo (for the Okanagan), Messrs. T. Abriey and J. Rooke
(for the Kootenay and Boundary).
Ladner,  January   31,   1018.
Editor Delta Time's:
Dear Sir,���1 have noticed with interest that the New Westminster
Board of Trade has decided to send
a delegation to confer with the Delta
Board of Trade iwith reference to the
development of this district anel the
question Ot transportation. 1 should
just like to say a word along that
There   is   no   doubt    in   the   world
that  a tram  line  to New   Westminster
would   be  in  some   ways  beneficial  to
the  district,  but  the question  is,  how
much would It really benefit the business men of the community and residents in  general.    We  have some  excellent   stores   in   Ladner,   and   as   a
j matter of  fact  we  can   buy  our groceries,   meat,  ebutter   and    eggs    and
jsome   lines   of   dry   goods,  iboots   and
] shoe's cheaper in Ladner than we can
in   Vancouver,   certainly  a  great  deal
cheaper   than   we  can   in  the  city   of
New  Westminster.
Prices charged for goods In the
Royal city are practically prohibitive
jand a resident of New Westminster
informed me, a number of people will
cluib te-gether and go tei Vancouver
for their suptplies, and they claim
that alter paying freight thereon they
neill save 2f> per cent, over New Westminster prices. Just you take a trip
through the New "Westminster stores,
tane a note book and jot down the
prices. Then gel lei Vancouver and
set over against them the prices pal I
in that city and it will .be very' Obvious why we should prefer to shop
in the latter city.
As a  resident  of  the  Delta,   I   consider   that   the    people   of   the    Delta
have been  held  up by the New Westminster   merchants   (they   even   hold
up   their   own)   and   until   they   ceimc
down to something reasonable, for my
ipart   I  say iboost with  both hands  for
; the    development   of   the   Vancouver
i Idea   and  do  anything  possible  to  secure    closer    connection    and    closer
business   relationship   with   that   city.

Hot Water as ��� Tonlo.
Drinking a cup of hot water Is a
more efBcacie-us treatment for many
Ills than some persons realize. There
are pbytlcltins who prescribe It for In
active livers, a glassful to he taken as
v-ein as one wakes iu the morning. The
warmth aa well as tbe liquid sre liene-
iciiil. for it Is a well known fact tbat
few persons drink as much water
through tbe day ss they should.
Thnt the dose streets the complexion
favorably there Is no doubt Some per
sons add the Jules of half a leinon to
the water. There Is so doubt tbat for
certain systems this Is beneficial, but
It is a matter that a physician should
decide In individual Instances.
Many a case of simple indigestion
may be cared by drinking a cup of
hot water, the dose to be taken as
soon as there is any sense of discomfort Adding a half teaspoonful of bi-
carbonate of soda Is recommended bj
some physicians where there la pro-
noiiiiieii acidity of tbe stomach, the
soda acting as a neutralizes while tha
warm liquid carries ths matter from
the stomach.
Persons who are dieting for reduc
tion find hot water more thirst quench
Ing than cold, and they therefore caa
get along comfortably with a smaller
quantity. That water taken with food
is fattening there is no doubt
Hot water ls sn excellent substitute
for tea for persons made nervous by
the beverage and on certain occasions
may be used as a food substitute.
If for any reason there Is a desire
to get along with tbe leust quantity of
food and the stomach becomes empty,
hot water is soothing and Oils tbe void,
so that for a time a feeling of faint
ness Is obviated.
It ls In no way a food, however, and
should not be regarded as snob.

Changing the Hair Line.
So much has been said of ths folly
���f changing ths coiffure to snlt each
passing style tbat tbe other side is apt
to be overlooked. Hair can be worn
too continuously In one style, snd If a
woman Is not careful aho may find
herself without say hair on the top of
her head tn the place where tbe hair
ought to grow.
The girl who thinks she looks picturesque with parted hair should oc
csslonslly take weeks off for a pompadour unless she wants a broad path
across her cranium. This holds good
of tbe angles at which the long hair is
arranged, and there should be fre
qnent changes. If only la the privacy
of the boudoir.
Tbe benefit of thea* changes Is real
teed when one finds that dandruff accumulates under the thickest part of
ths hair, and If tt Is too long In one
spot there ls danger ef ths titrable bs
coming chronic.
Mothers have much te bs responsible
for by not regarding hair strain fer
their daughters. No girl whs wears
her hair la one way from the time she
is six or sight until she puts ou long
frocks can hope to hare a good bead
of hair. It Is bound ts bs worn In

"Look at your shoes. Your skirt

"Have your ankles trim. Wear buttoned hoots aud set the buttons over

"Don't wear shabby shoes. Your

Mrs. Ha__ard will not testify. I'
is probable that all the testimony
both for the defense and the state'"
rebuttal will be in tonight and ths*
the arguments will begin tomorrow
morning. A ruling of Judge Yakey'e
has materially shortened the lengt"*
��f the defense, by eliminating th��*
testimony of about fifty wilnisse"
milled to testify that they had take**
ihe same treatment as the Williamson sisters under Dr. Hazzard, an<"
found it beneficial.
E. Mehner, father of Paul Mehner
mayor of Bremerton, was the first o'
these witnesses.
"Were you ever under the care o*
Dr. Hazard, and If so, what were the
results?" queried Attorney Karr ft>��
tne defense.
Special Prosecutor Kelly wanted te
know if the witness was called as a��-
expert witness.
"No," said Karr "we want to show
that the same treatment given othc
patients as that given the Williamson sisters so as to prove the absence-
of inteiu lo commit crime in the cas��
at bar."
Kelly objected. Karr argued tha*
-he court admitted such testimony
when he allowed Miss Dorothea Williamson to testify as to Uie treatmen'
she secured and 'what effect it had
The court sustained the state's objection saying that 'Dorothea's evidence
was admissible as showing a commor

DOJ" Tabebnactle,
Lancaster Oate
W., was crowded
today to hear
Pastor Russell.
He spoke of mistaken notions re
the end of the
world. He assured his audience that "the
earth abldeth
f o r e v e r," and
claimed tbat errors were built upon misinterpretations of "Script ure. His text was Revelation x. 6, 7. "And the angel sware
* * * that the time should be no longer (delayed)."
Pastor Russell declared that his text
has no reference to tbe end of time-
that time could never end, must al-
ways endure. The word delayed
should bave been added by tbe translators to catch the proper thought
Tbe time mentioned would no longer
be delayed The fulfilment of delayed
promises would be accomplished.
These views in recent years have
been most pronouncedly voiced by
Christian brethren styled Adventlsts.
but really are to be found In nearly
all the creeds of Christendom. Tbe
erroneous theory has been further bolstered up by the misinterpretations of
our Lord's words translated the end of
the world. Our Lord said nothing about
the end of the earth, ge; what He did
mention was tbe end of the aion or
Age ln which we live. Various atom
or ages bave followed one another,
eacb ending in turn end giving place
to another. So the present aion or age
we believe, will soon give place to a
better aion or Age���tbe aion or age tn
which sin and death have reigned will
give place to an aion or Age in which
Christ and His Church will reign triumphant.
Heavens snd Earth on Firs
Those who have not learned tbat the
Bible frequently uses language ln ti
symbolical manner may be excused for
taking literally some of Bt Peter's
statements respecting the burning of
the heavens and tbe earth. A critical
study shows that the Apostle could
not have referred to the literal earth
and tbe literal heavens as being consumed. He used the term ear'h sym
bollcolly, as representing society, of
which tbe mountains or kingdoms ure
the backbone, just as be used the word

VICTORIA, Jan. 26���The most important convention in connection with
the agricultural department of the
province of British Columbia which
are being held at this time was opened yesterday in the Botanical Chambers of the Parliament Buildings,
when the Farmers' Institutes congregated for' the discussion and transaction of the many broad and vital
questions of business affecting the
farming industry in the province.
The session lasted throughout the
day and it is likely that an extra session will have to be held in order lo
complete the business. Many questions were discussed and in a few
instances action was taken by means
of resolutions.
Perhaps the most important question that arose throughout the day
was that concerning the telephone
service in the province. A resolution
was brought in recommending that
the government be asked to facilitate
the granting of charters to private
companies desiring to operate ln the
province, but when the matter came
to be discussed it waa found that the
vast majority of the delegates���and
there were about a hundred of them
���favored much more drastic steps
being recommended.
Government ownership was frankly
advocated, the argument against the
private owner being the dual one that
where he did operate a line he charg-
i ed an exorbitant rate and that ln any
case he was not likely to invade tho
parts that could not be expected to
pay, the parts which, so lt was stated, required the telephone the most
on account of the railway and road
Finally the matter was left to the
committee to draw up another resolution. Another resolution fixing the
limit of assessment of agricultural
land at $300 per acre was passed by
the convention on a division.
Mr. Scott, the deputy minister of
agriculture, presided over the meeting and the Hon. Price Ellison delivered  an  address  in  the  afternoou.

generally fetired.
Although many expect tbe social con
flagration. not many yet fear the re
llgious blaze' predicted by tbe Apostle.
It surely will come; not a Jot or tittle
will fall. The religious "heavens" and
the social "earth" will catch fire to

upon tbe tishes of bumuu institutions.
Messiah will establish tbe Kingdom
of glory and blessing in tbe interests
of our poor, dying race. Tbe "new
heavens" will be the new ecclesiastical
power���the Church in glory The "new
earth" will be the new social arrange
ment which Messiah will inaugurate.
Some of the Difficulty
The early Church hoped. In harmony
with the Apostolic teachings, for Messiah's Kingdom to be established and
for tbe resulting "times of restitution
.f all things'which God batb spoken
by the mouth of all the he>ly Prophets
���duee the world began."-Acts III. 10-21
After the Apostles fell asleep and
the Kingdom still delayed, false doctrine's crept into the Church, amongst
others the theory thai Christ's King
dom was not to be waited feir���thut it
cprue at Pentecost and the Apostles did
not know of it; that It must conquer its
way'to the Throne of eartb���that con-
verts must be made even thouch the
usslstanee of Inquisitional-? torments
were necessary to effect this.
False Kingdoms of God
When the Protestant Reformation renounced Catholicism and denounced it
as ADti-Chrlst lt proceeded, neverthe
less, along the same lines Various
Protestant Churches did their best to
fill tbe place which I'apucy claimed
and to get earthly kingdoms to support
their claims to spiritual domination
Thus the Czar of Russia Is the Head
uf -the Creek Church, Emperor Wil
liam is the Head of the Lutheran sys
tern. King George is Head of the
Church of England, theoretically. We
may be sure, however, that none of
these talented men believe for a mo
ment that they are reigning as and for
and Instead of Messiah.
None of these are Kingdoms of
Christ, nor could all of them together,
called "Christendom." hope ever to
bring to pass tbe glorious things
promised of Messiah's Empire���that
"every knee shall bow and every
tongue confess to the glory of God."
