Without the Delta ana Lulu Island stock breeders tbe New Westminster stock exhibition would be a
small affair indeed. Stock from the
farms of Messrs, Hon. T. W. Paterson, Alex Davie, John Savage, Gui-
ehon Bros., Tamboline Bros, and J.
M, Steves, with entries from many
smaller bleeders formed at least
half t'.e exhibition in the 3tock pad-
decks, and goes a long way toward
making up the stock praade, one of
tht leading teatdrea of the exhibition on its last days.
The feature of the horse exhibition was generally conceded to be
the splendid showTng of Clydesdales.
In every class competition was keen,
and. visitors were surprised at the
quality ot the stock entered. ThiB
was particularly true of the young
In the light horse divisions there
were short entries in some classes,
tut quality was maintained, and
throughout the show no second-rater
got an award.
Dr. Wilson won first place in the
standard-bred stallion class, and
later with the same fine animal took
the championship in the standard
and thoroughbred division.
Mr. A. Davie made wins in several
divisions; first for a roadster foal
of 1913; all the awards in the shire
division; tirst for coach mare; first
in the general purpose mare or gelding class; and a special prize for the
test general purpose animal bred in
British   Columbia.
In the Clydesdale division both
Judge Bryce Wright nnd horsemen
spectators conceded that the two-
year-old filly class was the best that
entered the ring, all agreeing that
Mr. D. Montgomery's entry, which
won first place from a strong lot of
youngsters and afterwards took the
heavy draught championship for
mare of any age, was the finest
young Clydesdale female they had
seen in the west.
Mr. John Savage, who made such
a good showing in Clydesdales at
Victoria, again demonstrated his
ability as a breeder by getting second place in the championship
draught division'in the "get of one
sire" class, and a special prize for
tbe best draught horse bred in B.
C. In the Canadian bred Clydesdale
division he secured three awards ln
si ven  classes.
In the sheep, swine and cattle-
branches of animal husbandry, Hon.
T. w, Paterson largely figured lu
his exhibit of Shorthorn and Polled
Angus cattle. In short, he represented one-half of tne Deef breeds
at the fair. He also had a splendid
showing of Down sneep and Yorkshire swine.
Mr. Alex. Davies, a young breeder
of merit, who has risen from the
ranks to the highest office in the B.
C. Stock Breeders' Association, has
an unusually fine exhibit of long
anel medium wooled sheep. His exhibit of Oxford Downs was highly
commended by the judge. In swine
he also was a large exhibitor, and
a bulk of the prize money went his
way. He was the only exhibitor of
goats on the ground. In draught
horses he was also a strong exhibitor as the prize lists will shew.

Several years ago quite a number
of the original survey stakes, which
were of wood, were burned; others
rotted away and were lost, and the
lines subsequently surveyed, it has
been learned, deviated considerably
from the original ones. It is stated
now that transfers of real estate in
certain sections east of the No. 5
road are absolutely impossible, as
no purchasers can be found who will
take deeds based on the present surveys.
While agreed that a resurvey is
necessary, the members of the council are not unanimous as to the manner In which It should be carried
out. Councillor Fentiman insists
tbat tbe ratepayers should be consulted before an expensive undertaking I? authorized. Others believe
that the council, possessing the authority, should commence the work
at once.

Newman expects to see th"

with them this- important phase of
agricultural study. He has visited
a number of agricultural districts on
his way to the Coast, and everywhere
he has been met with a demand tha!
his idea should be given practical expression, He has visited
some of the valleys of tin
Province, and is ��� certain that
alfalfa can be raised in abundance,
despite the arguments to the contrary. Careful selection of seeds, he
says,   will   accomplish   results   little
reamed of in this country, and with, the
soil that is so admittedly rich as thut
of some of the interior valleys, he
is convinced that the industry of agriculture can be considerably advanced by the application of scientific methods.

car load of feed purchased of the
Brackman-Ker Milling Company. The
entire carload has now been sold.
The grain will be despatched to
Eburne at once, and in the near future will be ready  for distribution.
After the association had given
the feed question serious consideration for several weeks, in the course
cf which Calgary concerns and local
grain dealers ewre approached, the
matter was brought to a head at the
last meeting and Brackman-Ker's
proposition accepted. This company
is selling the feed, at $30 or $28 a
ton, according to the grade, f.o.b.
Eburne. The association then appointed a committee, members of
which were McKay & Price, B. Wilson, F. T. Wilson, C. F. Lockhart and
,J. Glenton, to take orders of members.
The membership of the Richmond
'Poultry Association is increasing by
jjeaps and bounds, five new members
being received  at the last meeting,
and   with   the  Inauguration    of    cooperative grain buying it is expected
,(hat the organization  will become a
s-till greater power for good  among
local   poultrymen,   the   number   of
whom is legion.
Otiher matters coming before the
last meeting of the association were
[the advertising booklet, containing
rules and regulations, and the annual s-how, to be held November 11.
12 and 13. The committee in charge
of the booklet reported that the cost
i f publication was $31.50, but that
(I've advertising income was $61,
j eaving a good balance. The book-
I et is now being distributed.
& j Arrangements for the show are
(progressing very satisfactorily. Mr.

Ihndered his services as superintendent of tihe show, an offer which the

winner, taking a number of first and
second  awards.
There wen- many fine animals in
the light classes, and, though in
some classes there was no competition, no awards went to second-
The feature of ihe day's judging
was ihe splendid show uf Clydesdales. In every class bhere was keen
competition, and visitors were greatly surprised at the quality of the
horses entered, Particularly notable was ihe huh quality of the young
stuck. Among these Capt, Watson's
"get of sire" and "product of mare"
entries  were  remarkable.
Capt. Watson won the stallion f
championship wit'h the well-known
prize-winner, "Barron's Craigie," a
horse that is today as fit as ever.
The two-year-old. filly class was
probably the best in the ring yesterday, the winner, I). Montgomery's
entry, with which he later won the
heavy draught championship for
mare of any age, being possibly one
of the best of her (lass shown in
British Columbia.
Shannon Bros., of Cloverdale, had
a number of fine entries and got a
good share of the best awards, particularly in Canadian bred animals.
John Savage, of Delta, had a fine
lot of Clydesdales, and got a number
of the best awards. The following

Judging of Ayrshires commenced
this morning, Mr. Smith, of Spokane,
placing the awards. This breed is
represented stronger than any other,
over seventy entries being recorded.
J. W. Clise, of Redmond, Wash., one
of United States' millionaire farmers,
has a large string of this favorite
dairy breed, and he has the- best
money can buy. There are some cattle money cannot buy, aud they are
being bred right at home in the valleys of British Columbia. Thi_ was
evidenced in the show ring this morning, when Joseph Thompson, of Lhil-
liwack, beat Clise in the aged cow-
class, and also getting first in dry
cow class. Thompson got first ar.d
second in aged cow with i_.lise third.
In the two-year-old heifer class Clise
won from Thompson, who was placed-
second, with Mortison. of Saskatchewan, third. Another large exhibitor
in the Ayrshire classes is R. Ness, of
Alberta. Ness is one of the oldest
breeders in Canada, a brother in Quebec being a large importer of the
The judging of Jerseys started this
morning in conjunction with the
Ayrshires, classes of tho two breeds
being in the ring at the same time.
Through this arrangement no time is
lost by the judge, who foes on with
the work of placing tbe awards
when one class is being brought out
or led back to the barns.
Cox, of Brantford, Out.; Bull, of
Brampton, Ont., and Grimmer Bros.,
of Pender Island, are the principal
exhibitors in the Jersey classes.
Stock from the farms o.' these breed1-
ers is worthy of the best representatives of the liutle island- butter cow.
