fine* they had seen in the Far West
There were 250 spiendld horses in
the stalls and tied along the south
fence of the grounds; the stable accommodation was far short of exhibitors' needs. These animals were
mostly heavy draught horses. Clydesdales being most in evidence, both
in the pure breeds and In the high
grades; but there was fine driving
stock too, many of them pedigree*,
animals.
Most of the Delta farms are long
established and for many years much
attention has been paid to the breeding of fine draught stock. Prizes
were won in competition with some
of the best breeders in the country,
and this helped foster the industry
to such an extent lhat today there
are purebred horses on nearly every
farm hi the district and the pride
shown in these products of their section is unequalled in the country.
Cattle Exhibits.
The fine new cattle exhibit stables
were well filled the stock being largely dairy breeds, though there were
some splendid specimens of the
Aberdeen Angus. The dairy cattle
were largly Holstelns���fine stock all,
and there were in the stalls some exceptionally fine Gurnseys.
When   judging was finished    late
in the   afternoon    the   horses   and
cattle were paraded for view in the
race   track,   and   made   a   splendid
In  the  lead  were the prize
winners  in  the  carriage  and  roadster classes;    then    came   the    big
draught  horses  in   harness,   followed by the champion and qfher prize
stallions   and   brood   mares.     After
these were-a band of fifteen draught
horses,  the entry of one exhibitor,
iMr.   T.   E.   Ladner.     Next  came   a
| fine string of purebred dairy cattle,
i The  procession circled the half-mile
j track, giving the spectators an excellent exhibition.
Slieep.
The sheep breeders of Delta show-
id some of their best animals, and
the best animals of the Delta are
,he best animals of the country, for
those who are interested in sheep
ireeding are satisfied only with stock
that Is second to none.
There was a great improvement in
Ihe poultry show this year In the
number of birds entered and in the
quality of their breeding.
Fruit and Flowers.
In the Agricultural ball the fruit
and flower exhibits were unusually
good, much of the fruit being of exceptional quality, and packed in
such manner as to show that the
growers realize the value of grading.
The flowers, both potted and cut,
were beautiful and greatly enhanced
the appearance of the ball. The veg-
table and root exhibits were below
the average, largely accounted for
by the lateness of the season, but
for all there were some spcimen
vegetables that attracted special attention. Notable among these was a
huge vegetable marrow exhibited by
Miss Rich, and an enormous squash
from the garden of Mr. T. _". l^jd-
There was a    big showing of
tnt improvement to their exhibition
in the form of new cattle buildings,
tor which he said they owed their
thanks to their member in the local
house, Mr. MacKenzie, who would
now address them.
Hard to Ei-unl
Mr. MacKenzie, on rising, complimented the agricultural society
on the excellence of their exhibit of
live stock, which he said it would be
hard to equal. He said he was requested to convey to them the regret of thfe Minister o���� Agriculture,
who had hoped to attend the fair.
Mr. MacKenzie spoke of the much
needed ferry connection, for which
ar. appropriation of $40,000 had been
made, and assured his hearers that
e\ery cent of this would be expended
on the work. Twelve thousand dollars he said had been expended in
the project on the approach on the
other side of the river, and survys
had been made on the Delta 3ide, but
that they must not expect the work
to be completed in a day or two. As
soon as plans could be prepared, he
stated, the work would go on.
Tlie Judges.
Tht exhibition judges were: Mr.
J. A. Turner, Calgary, draught
horses; Mr. Bryce Wright, also of
Calgary, cattle; Capt. Williams, light
horses; Mr. C. Upton, the government poultry expert, Victoria, poultry; Mr. P. E. French, of the Agricultural department. Victoria, fruit

A splendid programme of sports
and athletic events has been arranged for the entire week at the
New Westminster Fair, and thousands of dollars have been spent by
the K. A. ft I. Society In obtaining
special features lor the amusement
of visitors. These will be staged
dally in front of the grand stand.
None of the acts obtained have ever
been seen in the West before and
the most ftirilliug and sensational
array of high class attractions ever
presented at any exhibition will be
included In the daily programme.
Entries have been received for the
cattle department from Alberta,
Sskatehewan, Washington and from
many poinis in British Columbia, but
the entry that will prove of the most
interest to Delta residents will be
the entry of 47 head of cattle from
the farm of Lieut.-Governor Paterson in the Delta. Another entry of
considerable interest will be the exhibit of prize stock from the Colony
Farm at Coquitlam.
Competition will also be very
keen among the districts who have
entered agricultural exhibits in competition for the coveted Dewar trophy  and  the  $3000   in  cash   prizes.
Although no district exhibit will
be entered from Delta, many exhibits
of vegetables, grains and grasses
and dairy produce and individual
cattle entries will be seen at the
big show.
Many entries have also been received for the third annual horse
show and this feature of the exhibition will prove a splendid drawing card. Major-General F. L. Lessard. C. B., commanding general of
the Toronto division of the Canadian
militia has consented to come west
and act as judge. He is considered
the best judge of horse flesh on the
continent and has acted at the Toronto, Ottawa, Gait and New York
horse shows. A musical ride will
be a feature of the horse show.
Three bands will be in attendance at the fair during the entire
week and with the illuminations and
decorations the fair grounds will be
a blaze  of glory.

Willi Surveying Party.
Mr. J. P. Clarke, late of Ladner,
who was spending the summer with
a survey party in tbe Crow's Nest

life. A falling tree crushed him to
the ground and he was instantly
killed.
Throughout last winter and the
early summer Mr. Clarke was principal nt Ladner public school, resigning his position at the end of June.
Great regret is expressed throughout Delta at his untimely death, for
while here he greatly endeared lilm-
self to the children and was highly
respected in the community, Mr.
Clarke was a member of All Saints'
Church and of the churcn choir. He
was only 23 years of age.
While in the Crow's Nest Bass
tin dieeased was employed with the
engineering firm of Ironsides ft
McDonald. One of the members of
the firm will accompany the body,
whiclr will arrive iu Vancouver this
morning.
The funeral will take place from
St. Paul's Church, Vancouver, at
II  o'clock today.
Mr. Clarke was a son of the English Church rector at Sardis, near
chilliwack, and was a nephew ot
Bishop de Pencier. He was graduated from Trinity College, Toronto,
ii 1911, and in 1912 accepted the
position of the Highfield School,
Hamilton. Leaving Ontario he came
west and began the studv of law
with the firm of McGill ft Grant,
but forsook this for the teaching
profession, accepting the principal-
ship  of  Ladner school.

one of the richest agricultural sections on the continent, and the
farmers were among the most progressive. He spoke of what had

Mr. F. Wilmshursi, the club huntsman, was in Ladner Thursday, ar

Delta. On Saturday last. Mr. Martin Griffin, a member ()f the club,
in a few words addressed to the
crowd gathered at the formal opening of Delta fair, stated that his club
'proposed to ride to hounda in Delta

that this sport was entirely different
from tho fox chase as In drag hunting the course Is practically laid out.

also assured the farmers that care

As announced early in the season,
the Dominion Live" Stock Branch has
this year undertaken a distribution
of pure bred male animals throughout Canada on a somewhat extensive scale. In Inaugurating this
policy the aim has been to aid sec-
lions where pure bred sires were
lacking and to encourage new communities In following an intelligent
Bystetn   In   breeding.    This   form   of
ance lias proven very popular
and .luring the past few months a
Iargi number of bulls and severa'
stallions have been placed In various
parts of  the  country   In   Ihe  hands
al associations formed specially lor the purpose of handling and
aing them. All animals
placed remain   the   property of the
tnient of Agriculture, the local
associations   assuming   the   responsi-

Tin distribution of bulls and stallions having been brought to a close
for this year the opportunity is now

regarding tbe rules governing the
distribution an,d the procedure to be
followed in forming the necessary
organization may be had upon application to the Live Stock Commissioner. Ottawa.

CAMBIE, Lulu Island, Sept. 22.���
The Grauer Brothers, Rudolph and
(Jus, sons of Mr. Jacob Grauer, who
recent.y figured in a report that the
Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul Railway had purchased a large tract of
land on Sea Island, are dissolving
partnership, nnd will soon hold an
auction  sale of stock.    The Grauers
'have farmed on a rental basis for
several   years   their   father's     large
J ranch on Sea Island. Gus is now
goiiiK out. of ranching, while Rudolph will continue to rem  some 70
'acres of his father's, i.n which he
will go in for live stock farming.
The Grauers will neither confirm
nor deny the report that the large
ranch  bas been  sold to  the  railway
I company, and Eburne is still "guessing" in consequence.   A general im-
ipression seems to prevail however,
that (the reported sale never took
place.
One of the Grauer brothers stated
Ito a representative Of The British
Colombia:. Saturday that all but 70
: aires of his father's ranch bad been
rented to Orientals. He said that
the only reason  he and  his  brother
I were dissolving partnership was
that  the  latter    desired   a   vacation
I from tho farm, on which bu was
born  and had  lived all his life.
The Grauer ranch, considered to
be one of the best on Sea Island,,
was purchased by. J. Grauer twenty-
two years ago for a consideration
of |125 an acre, which was then considered a very good price. Its value
today runs Into the hundred thousands.

In 1912 there were 8,360 vessels
of 836,000 net tonnage registered in
the Dominion while 60,000 men and
boys   found   employment   on   vessels
plying in Canadian waters.    In 1868
there  were only 200  lights  for the
guidance   of   mariners   while   today
there   are   1,300   lights   and   1,00*0
keepers.
I    lion.  .Mr. ��IIazen  pointed out that
the policy of the present government
I was to make navigation safe, and referred particularly to the incrt.ised
inumber of life stations built by the
present     government.      Permanent

(and   their   numbers    would    be    in-

| More Hatcheries.
The Minister of Marine and Fish-
leries instanced how he was endca\or-
iing to increase the value of the lish-
jeries by means of hatcheries. There
would be 55 hatcheries in Canada
by the end of the present year. By
means of cold storage fish could be
supplied to all the provinces In fine
conidtoin and at a remarkable low
price. The value of Canada's fisheries in 1911 was $29,000,000.
Enforcing the Laws.
Hon. Mr. Hazen spoke of the Government's work in fishery patrol,
which is different from fishery protection. The object of tbe latter ls
to keep poachers outside the three
mile limit while the former is to
enforce Canadian laws and regulations within that limit. Two big
cruisers are now being built and the
Minister stated that if these and the
present fleet were found inadequate
to protect the fisheries he woulu asl
Parliament for more cruisers. The
fisheries must be protected.
May Withdraw,
But the minister's most important
tatement was in connection with the
fishery protection treaty with the
United States. In 1908 a joint commission was appointed to investigate
.nd report upon fishing condition?
along and contiguous to the international boundary line. Professor
Prince represented Canada and Pro*
fessor David Starr Jordan the United
States. They made their report containing many suggestions, which were
approved by both governments and
confirmed by treaty In 1910. Canada ratified this treaty three years
ago but in spite of the efforts of
President Taft, the United States
legislative authorities have not yet
completed their share of the contract.
The consequences is that the fisheries
are being depleted in these contiguous waters. When ln Washington
last year, Mr. Hazen notified the
American government that unless
they acted quickly Canada would
withdraw althogether. They asked
him to wait until after next session of
Congress, whloh lie agreed to do. but
nothing is likely to he done until the
United States Tariff Bill is disnosi-u
of. If the United States will no-
then ;olu in protecting th." fisheries,
tho Minister plainly intimated thi'*
Canada will no longer consider herself bound by the treaty,
The speech of Hon. Mr. Hazntl
shows clearly that much has been
done since his accession to office to
place the marine and fisheries interests of Canada on a sound  basis.

dredging of the millions of yards of | and places of residence. In the case
sand and silt necessary to give the
Arm a deep entrance across the
sandheads, the plans begin to take on
form and the end, a perfectly trained river and protected channel, can
be seen.
Today another step is being take*
towards carrying out this plan by
the Public Works Department of
Canada, when tenders were asked for
the erection of the third wingdam
at the lower end of Woodward's
Slough, designed to keep the channel away from the bend side of the
river and away from Westham Island, maintaining it straight and true
from the upper end of the slough
to und across tbe sandheads. This
wingdam will be 68 2 feet in length,
of piling, brush and rock, of standard width. This wingdam must be
built this winter, and tenders must
be in tbe bands of the department
by October 21.
Martin & Broley are making
good progress on the north jetty,
and at the present rate will have the
first unit of the long fence completed by the first of the year, when
work on the second unit can be commenced. It is planned by the department to make this work continuous,
and work on the second unit to start
as soon as the first is completed.
Removal of 870 yards of sand and
silt from the mouth of the Pitt river
will commence about Octooer 5. A
crew is already at work on the job
and arrangements are being made
for the disposal of the detritus to
be pumped up from the channel,
which is to be dredged to a depth
of 25 Tect and 300 feet in width.
Tbe pontoons and discharge pipe
will be brought up fhe river within
a day or two, and they will be placed for discharging the sand and silt
on Douglas Island. The dredge will
be in the river and work will commence about October 5. The Pacific
Dredging Company, which is engaged in the removal of several million
yards of dirt from the bed of False
creek has the Pitt rfVer contract.

KEEN RACE IN LAST
MONTH OF CONTESTS
I'pMvoiiii Has Made Sensational
Progress i" International Egg-
Laying Event.
iC\ery thing points to a keen race
tor the first position Ihe last month
of the International Egg-laying Cou-
W-st which has been held this year
at the Willows poultry yards at Victoria. In the class for light breeds
She breeder who was leading all year
-dropped to fifth place. A. Uns-
worth's pen, which Btarted a month |
behind nearly all the oilier liens, has I
worked to second place with only 13
eggs behind the leader, and if his
birds can keep up the pace they
should lead at the end of this month,
which  closes this year's contest.
C. W, Robbins, of Fairfield, is
leading by over 40 eggs In the class
for heavies. This seems a long lead
and although his birds were showing
signs of moulting at the beginning
of this month, ll Is thought that they
will finish first ivith a good lead. J,
AnimiM's pen ot Wh . Wyandottes
���are laying well and ihey arc now
in fifth place with a splendid chance
to be iiear the load at the finish.

dentally increasing the lead over
fourth. Their performance of 124
eggs during the month helped them
onsiderably. Pens 22, 23, 30 and
0 also moved up. It Is remarkable
jthat the first four places in this class
j were up till last month held by four
jdlfferent breeds. Pen 26 laid 16
eggs during the last three days of
the month, with only five birds, six
eggs being laid ou one day.

Heavy ('unfile.
The discharge of heavy artillery
on the opposite shores of llie Straits
at intervals throughout Ihe day on
Saturday led many Victorians to believe that the Island was being visited by a series of slight earthquake |
shocks. Visitors from the United
States located the firing as emanating from the neighborhood of Port
Townsend, and the regularity of the
reports confirmed the probability of
artillery fire.

off Longue Points, opposite the flouting shipdock, at . o'clock yesterday
morning nnd in spite of the efforts
of nearly a dozen tugs, remained
fast, and had to be lightered of a

preparatory to the next effort which
will be made by the tugs to refloat
her. The Mount Temple is out of

it. The mud bank on which she Is

damage at all might result were It
not for Ihe fact that the ship was
