On Wednesday, Mr. George Clark, [
of Ladner, was united ln marriage
to Mrs. H." P. Coleman. The wedding took place at the Methodist
church, Eburne, Rev. Mr. Wright officiating. After the ceremony, Mr
and Mrs. Clark left for Victoria.
As is usual the week before the
fair, the market at New Westminster
on Friday was somewhat quiet, and
prices remained very much the same
as last week. There was no great
supply of potatoes which were selling
at from 75 cents to $1.00 per sack.
Chickens were being sold at from 18
cents to 20 cents or from $7 to $10
per dozen. ' Decks' weTe being of-1
fered at from 80 cents tp $100 each,
Some good ducks wete sold at $12 a
dozen. Eggs remained at the same
price as last week, namely 50c retail
and 40 to 45 cents wholesale, while
butter was 40 cents per lb. Young
pigs were selling at from $4.50 to $6,
and a few three months old Yorkshires and Berkshires fetched $7
each. Fish were steady at prices the
same as last week, with steelheads
mostly in demand.
Dairy Cattle,
In the Holstein and Jersev exhibits
Mr. A. Davie took four firsts ahd
three seconds; Mr. T. E. Ladner,
three firsts and three seconds, and
Mr. C. H. Davis captured two firsts.
Mr. T. W. Paterson swept the board
with his Durhams, being awarded six
firsts and four seconds, while he
secured the only award tn the Ayrshire class with his champion one-
year old bull. In the graded stock,
Mr. T. E. Ladner was to the fore
with three firsts and one second,
while ln the dairy stock, of five cows,
Mr. A. Davie took premier honors
with Mr. T. E. Ladner runner up.
Seldom has there been seen anywhere except at the Delta show so
splendid an array of horses. In
spans of draft, agricultural, driving
and general purpose mares and geldings, W. Lougheed, A. Davie. Dr. J.
Kerr Wilson, D. Montgomery and T.
W Paterson were the winners of
first place, while in the Clydesdales
with pedigrees, the latter exhibitor
also took four firsts.
In the agricultural class of horses,
D. Montgomery showed to greatest
advantage, and T. E. Ladner, A.
Davie and S. Morley each secured a
first. Some magnificent horseflesh
was shown ln this division, and cora-
netition was keen for premier

as well as mixed breeds. Mr. T. E.

Field and Garden Produce.
".ll the root and vegetable exhibits were so keenly contested and
of such high average quality that lt
is sufficient to say that they more
than eoualled the high standard that
the Delta fair has set in previous
vears. Potatoes, turnips, carrots,
beets and vegetable marrows were
perhaps the best ever shown, while
it was Impossible for a visitor to
overlook the gargantuan pumpkins
and squashes.
To prepare and arrange so extensive an exhibition is no easy task,
and it must be a source of gratification to the officers and directors
that the Delta Fair of 1912 passed
of so successfully, greatly due to the
efforts of the secretary. A dell. Taylor, and his able assistants. It
might be added that general satisfaction was expressed at tbe experienced and painstaking decisions of
the judges,  Messrs. Yule,  Flatt  and
ter he had recently received from the
Delta Board of Trade advocating the
establishment of an Experimental
station for truck farming in the
Delta. He stated that Mr. Martin
Burrell waa at present away, but that
the matter would receive particular
attention, and recommended that a
deputation should go up before him
to discuss the matter.
In Mr. Scott, said Mr. MacKenzie,
they had a man who was a practical
farmer and who' bad the best interests of farmers at heart. Mr. Scott
wonld address them and give statistics showing how the large margin
between demand and supply called
for greater efforts to be made by
farmers in tbe district in meeting
that demand, and he was sure it
conld be done by the fertile district
of Delta.
Mr. Scott said he was most pleased
to come to their Delta fair and see
their splendid exhibits, especially of
sto-.*. He wa�� also _aueh struck
with the exhibits of roots which were
really wonderful. Great credit was
due the president, secretary and management for their efforts ln getting
together so magnificent an exhibition.
Referring to the government grant
he was glad to know tbat it w'ould be
devoted to furthering the advantages of so excellent a fair as that
of the Delta Agricultural Society.
He would like, said Mr. Scott, to
give them some figures to show that
tbe condition of agriculture in British Columbia was much better than
some people would have us to believe. While in 1910 the home production had been $14,398,990; in
1911 it had reached $21,641,928, an
nicrease of over seven millions,
which showed a very satisfactory
state of progress.
There were two products, how
ever, said Mr. Scott, which he
thought might very well receive more
Bttention ln the province, namely.
dairy produce and poultry. In 1011
the dairy products imported had
amounted to $1,983,281 and the
poultry to $2,115,000, a total of over
four million dollars. He had been
disappointed with the poultry exhibits here, and he thought they were
neglecting a most remunerative
branch of agriculture. The conditions in the Delta were most suitable
for poultry keeping, and these figures of Importation showed that
there was an ample demand for
greater home production.
He believed, said Mr. Scott, that
the future of farming in British Columbia lay In the wider adoption of
intensive farming ln small acreage.
It would lead to the production of
the land being increased many fold,
and they would be better enabled
here ln Delta, to supply all the wants
of Vancouver, New Westminster and
other points. It was true that transportation facilities were not so good
as they might be, but he did not
think they were going to be left long
without proper and better means of
transportation for their produce. He

The fair was the most successful
of any within recollection and was
Tkrgely attended by visitors from all
parts of the municipality. New
Westminster and other poihts. The
new hall and the ground disposition met with hearty approval, while
the general arrangements were most
efficiently carried out by Mr. H.
Bose, the secretary and the other
officials who lent their assistance,   j
The entries this year were about
300 more than last year and there
waa si gratifying improvement ln
the quality of the exhibits. The
garden produce was very good and
the roots, including potatoes, turnips and carrots were excellent.
Some very fine vegetable marrow
and sugar beets were noticeable features of the fair.
In the horse department the agricultural draft horses appeared to
best advantage and there was quite
a large list of special prizes for the
various classes.
The directors of this fair are to
he specially comme'ided for their
exceptionally good showing of poultry, a branch of farming which has
been somewhat inadequately provided for in some other exhibits. The
old hall is now utilized for this particular branch of the fair, having
been specially fitted up for the purpose. The exhibits today were large
find various, the Orpingtons, White
Rocks, Wyandottes and Plymouth
Rocks looking exceedingly good,
while there were some excellent
specimens of gee*se and turkeys.
All the other exhibits appeared
to be of superior class and wore
tastefully arranged in the new hall.
Special mention might be made of
the ladies' exhibits of workmanship,
which Indeed, were specially admired by at least one gentleman,
Reeve Mars of Coquitlam.
An interesting varlotion of the
programme usual at such occasions
took place after luncheon when Htm.
Thomas Taylor, minister of public
works, was presented with a golden
key as a souvenir of his visit to
open the new hall and fair. The
key is of artistic design, for which
Mr. Thomas Gifford of New Westminster is responsible, having a
sheaf of wheat engraved on -the
handle, and in the body of the key
the following Inscription: "Presented to the Honorable Thomas Taylor,
I minister of public works, on the
opening of their hall by the Surrey
Agricultural  Association,  1912."
Mr. F. J. MacKenzie, M.P.P., as
chairman, said that he wished to
take this opportunity of expressing
the appreciation of those present
and of the Delta riding, of Mr. Taylor's services as minister of public
works, and of his kindness in coming to Surrey to open the new hall
and the fair. It was the first time
that a minister of the crown had
opened an exhibition in the riding
of Delta, and ln view of that fact tt
was thought by many that lt was
fitting that some kind of recognition should be made on the present occasion. He would therefore
call upon Mr. .1. Brown, the president of the Surrey Agricultural Association, to present Mr. Taylor with
a slight token of their appreciation.
Mr. Brown, in the course of a few
appropriate remarks, emphasized the
gratitude of the association and
other friends in Mr. Taylor's visit to
Surrey and hoped it would not be
the last time he would be among
I  Mr.   Taylor's   Acknowledgement.
Mr. Taylor, in acknowledging,
said that he wns glad to have the
honor and privilege of being present and to receive their very kind
token of regard. He was glad to
hear that the new building was now
praotlcaly free from debt. Much credit was due to Mr. MacKenzie for his
influence in obtaining the handsome
grant from the government, which
had been supplemented by the municipality   and   private   subscription.
The spirit of progress, said Mr.
Taylor, on this side of the Fras> r
river was most noticeable and tbey
were witnessing, indeed, an extraordinary development on all sides.
Yesterday he had the first opportunity of risiting the works at Stave
lake, andthe thought it was the most
up-to-date equipment of the kind
on the const. The great and exceptional water power thus provided by
the immense works must greatly aid
in the development and prosperity
of farming operations throughout
British Columbia.
But he thought that they had
reached tbe stage, not only in the
Fraser valley, but throughout Canada, when they must combine to
assist in development of the most
varied and wonderful resources of
the Dominion. The time had come
when they must recognize no east or
west but consider British Columbia
as a part of the whole of the Dominion of Canada which was a joint-
trustee with Great Britain of the
British empire.
He was only too glad, he said, to
accept their invitation to take part
in the opening of the fair, to witness
the marked development of the district and would always remember
with feelings of gratitude his visit
to Surrey.
Subsequently   Hon.  Thomas   Tay
lor and others addressed the visitors
on the grounds'from the balcony of
tho hall.
Delta's  Member.
Mr. J. F. MacKenzie said he was
glad to inform them that he ""had
succeeded in obtaining the Hon.
Thomas Taylor, minister of public
works, who had done so much in
opening roads and in other public
improvements in the riding, to open
the fair. He was sure they would
be surprised at the great iropiove-
ment in the grounds and the now
hall. A great deal of work had devolved upon the officers of tne association to whom they were much
Referring to the poultry braucit.
Mr. MacKenzie said there wns a
fereat deal of money to be jnadc <n
this direction and advised its greater continue! improvement. With
regard to transportation, he Plight
mention that he had the opportunity of taking Mr. Taylor over the
highways and discussing the mutter
with him. *
Mr Mackenzie stated tnat Mr.
Stuart-Wade had wished it known
how desirable lt was that exhibits
ol Surrey produce sbould be sent
to the fair at Loth^ridge and exhorted the farmers to uphold, the
reputation of the Delta riding by
sending  their  best.
Reeve Mars of Coquitlam said
that the exhibits had been a revelation to him. Referring fa.the possibilities of home building, he mentioned that he had been looking on
the exhibits of women's work and
paid a high tribute to the ladies for
their fine workmanship.
Mr. W. 3. Manson, M.P.P., in the
course of his speech, referred to the
great development of Port Mann, as
likely to be a "city second to none"
on the souh side of-he Fraser river.
He also referred to the peculiar
knack" that Mr. F. J. MacKenzle
possessed of securing grants from
the government for the Improvement of his riding.
In opening the hall, Hon. Thomas
Taylor said It was an honor and
privilege to be present at the opening of the splendid new hall and the
23rd exhibition of the Surrey Agricultural Association, lt was a fortunate matter that the hall was now
practically free from debt.
Mr. Taylor repeated the import of
his general remarks at the luncheon,
adding that he had great pleasure
in now declaring the hall and fair
open, hoping that Surrey would
continue to show in the future the
marked advance that had characterized the past.
