LADNER, B. 0. SATUEDAY, NOVEMBER 1,1913.
$1.00 A YEAR.
TO BE FINISHED
IN TWO WEEKS
Ladner to Woodward's Landing Will
Soon Be Ready for Business���
Landing Almost Complete.
The temporary ferry to be established by the Provincial Government
between Ladner and Woodward's
Landing will soon be ready for traffic.
On the Delita side of the river the
landing at Ladner, located 'between
ihe Johnson warehouse and the Lanning. Fawcett & Wilson store is
practically complete, and on the
other side of the stream the work
is progressing favorably. The men
In charge say that in less than itwo
weeks both of the landings will be
ready for use, and as the scow will
be ready by that time there Is efsry
reason to believe that the service
will be established before the middle
o:' November.
The Ladner landing consists of a
plank road over the dyke and a single truss bridge from the end of this
to a float. The bridge is sixty feet
long and has a width of thirteen
feet inside wheel guards. It is
bung at both ends on hinges, consisting of timbers bored to work on
a bolt made of three and one-half
inch pipe filled with concrete. The
float Is made of large cedar logs
covered with a deck. It is twenty
bv forty feet on top.

APPEALS FROM
LADNER DECISION
BIGGEST SALES

Mayor Baxter Is Carrying Pheasant | Stevenson Auction Well Attended���*
Shooting Case to Highci
Court.
Mayor Baxter, of Vancouver, who
with Mr. G. W. Hutchins was fined
last -week in Magistrate Mcl*_ee's
court for shooting without a permit
from the Delta Game Protective Association on the farm of Mr. E. A.
Crawford, will appeal from the decision.
He said 'that the case was so clear
on his and 'his shooting partner's
side that they would bring the matter up merely on certiorari before a
Supreme Court judge in ���chambers
without bothering about an actual
appeal. The situation as explained
by the mayor was this:
Mr. Hutchins had the permission
of Mr. Crawford to shoot on Ills
farm, and Mayor Baxter accompanying him, Intended to obtain similar
permission before shooting. He
had to walk over the fields  before

Prices.

Messrs. Woods, Oliver, Gunn,
Brown, London and' Chorlton Bros,
were among the Delta farmers who
attended the big sale of horses and
cattle at the Ben Stevenson farm,
Mud Bay, last Tuesday. Chorlton
Bros, bought four head of grade Holsteins.
Twenty-eight head were sold, th*
prices averaging in the neighborhood
of $120, and ranging from $80 to
$152. Thirteen horses were sold
and the bidding on these was better
than at any sale held in the Fraser
Valley 'this fall. One grade Clydesdale mare brought $345, and a sucking colt sold for $80. Three hundred sheep and lambs sold at an
average price of $6.50 per head, and
hogs sold  well.
It was one of the biggest sales of

ped  by a game warden  and  asked
if they had a permit from the Delta
Game   Protective   Association.     Thei
mayor   stated   that   they    had    sent
away for idle a few minutes before,
baft  in  any  case,   the  law  did   not
recognize ithe association and no per-;
mit other than Mr.  Crawford's was:
necessary.    The party  did   not   fire
a shot on Mr. Crawford's ranch, but
later went on to that of Mr. Dominic Burns, as intended.
This side of the case w.i_ put before tiie magistrate, explained Mayor
Baxter, ibut a conviction was brought
in. He told the magistrate, he stat-'
ed, that he had not gone on the
land 'to shoot .but to obtain the permit.

Story of the America Cup
By Capt. St. John Hornby, R. N.

"outside the Nab," but eventually,
from kindly and chivalrous feeling,
this protest was withdrawn. At
10:30 a telegram was sent from
Cowes: "The ��100 cup for all
nations was run today and after a
most exciting contest wa won by
the America, which beat all her
competitors with the greatest ease;"
and so passed over to the other side
of the Atlantic America's cup, which
has remained there ever since���a
period of half a century. This cup
is now known In consequence of
the "Deed of Gift," as the "America Cup," in honor and in remembrance of the beautiful little schooner yacht.
Remark*, on the Race.
This race was extremely unsatisfactory from many points of view,
and the wind having veered, both as
to force and direction, the real merits of the two types���the schooner

The syndicate that owned the

by a deed, and the actual terms and
articles of the same need not here
be enumerated. It is sufficent to
draw the attention of your readers

There was. declared Mr. Bowser, a
deep-seated feeling in the breast of
nearly every one, and especially
among those who came from the
Old Land, that they should own some
land of their own. This was natural
and desirable. Nearly one-half of
the entire population of the province
was centred in or very close to Vancouver. There must be more people
on the land, because without people
on the land n'o country could be prosperous.
The present government had done
a lot along these lines, he continued.

the designers and builders on both
sides of the Atlantic, so that    they
may respectively turn out the very
best yacht that they are capable of
graceful  vessels  of  some  eighty  to
ninty-five  tons.    They     were   thoroughly well and stoutly built, first-
rate sea boats, schooner rigged. For
the most  part   they  were  owned   by
the   pilots   themselves,   who   cruised
about off New York and would often
stand    away    to    the  eastward     as
lar as the Grand Banks on the look-

Mr.   George   Steers   was   born   In
New  York, and  was  the son of Mr,
Henry steers, who nas a native of
Dartmouth,   England.      Mr,   Henry
Steers   was  ���������    m    time  connected

l nited States and Bet up for himself
in   New   York.   Tb.e   "Ami run"   was
built   for   an     Ami rlcan   syndics   i,
among   whom  was  Mr, John Steph-
' i -,  commodore  of  the  New   York
Yacht Club, for the avowed purpose
of winning rates.   She was designed
especially as a "racing craft." Up to
this period it had not been the practice In  England to build yachts exclusively  for  racing.    Our  country-
mi n certainly raced their yachts, but
the yachts  were also built  with an
eye   to   comfort   and   as   a   pleasant
means of locomotion, for taking the
owner and his frli :;ds to the various
ports  In  the South,  to  the Mediterranean  ar.d    for    cruising.    But    a
yacht,   as   a   mere   racing   machine,
v.as   at   that  time   unknown   to   our
yachtsmen,  and  a  "syndicate"  was
not even dreamt of.
The "America" soon maae a name
for herself across the Atlantic, and
rumors of her speed and r \ploits
reached the yachting clubs at Com -
and elsewhere. So much was her
fame noised abroad that the mem-
i ��� rs of ibe Royal yacht Squadron
r< solved to invite the owners of the
"America" to bring her over in the
Cowes yachting Beason. An invitation to this effect was accordingly-
sent by the commodore of the Royal
Vacht Squadron to the commodore
of the New York Yacht Club, and
at the same ri.ne a very handsome
prize was offered in the shape of a
cup, valued at ��100, open to
the yachts of all nations, to be
sailed for around the Isle of Wight.

ot elegant comfort inside, in the
test style of what might be called
luxurious simplicity. With regard
to her outward appearance it may
truly be said that all our yachtsmen were completely "taken aback"

The  speaker then   took     up     Mr.
Brewsetr's charge itha-t   the  government had placed' its inside knowledge
of where the rights-of-ways were to
be a', the disposal of its friends. He
went into the history of the negotiations   between   the  government  and
the G. T. P., the C. N. R., and the
P. G. E. railways.   In each case the
government placed the land along the I
right-of-way   under   reserve   for   the
benefit of the general public.    There |
was no speculation.    In each case thej
i reserve  had   been  made  before  the ���
agreement wlith the railway company
j in  order  to safeguard  the rights  of'
��� the public.    The same system of re- j
| serving   land   had   been   followed   Inl
regard to the projected Peace River I
Railway.

the government was nevertheless
considering making increases in it
ir it was found that the conditions
warrant it. For some little time
past the minister of Crown lands has
been making trips of Inspection in
different parts of the timber areas
and interviewing lumbermen and securing information on the condition
of the industry with a vie wto determining whether or not an increase
could be borne without hurting the
industry. If the tax could be imposed without bad results the people could rest assured that it would
be made.
Forestry Commission.
The speaker took up the work of
the special forestry commission of
1910. It had reported total standing timber alienated from the government at about 147,000,000,000
feet, with the total still held by the
Crown at 200,000,000,000. This
amount had been largely augmented
by information secured later so that
the timber now held by the Crown
was greatly in excess of two hun-
di-ed billion feet.
He showed how the forestry department was working, not only to
conserve the timber areas but also to
see that the public treasury was receiving all that the timber was worth
when they made sales. To reduce
the danger from fire to various
isolated areas of timber, some sixty
sales by auction had been made In
the last year. These areas embraced some 300,000,000 feet, and netted the government $400,000. They
had been sold, not to political friends
but to the highest bidders, aud some
of the highest prices for standing
timber ever recorded had been obtained. These lands must be cleared of timber in from two to three
years, when they would be ready for
the pre-omptor.
Railways First.
They bad been criticized for being
svow in peopling their farm lands.
Immigration was a function of the
Dominion government for one tiling,
and there was no use of putting the
people on the land until they had
railways to Berve them. They were
first concerned In getting the railways, and these later would be active immigration agents once they
were ready for business In the great
northland. The time was here when
instead of using the bonus system
for immigration, we should handpick
the newcomers to secure    the best

EBURNE, Point Grey, Oct. 30.���
Redistribution of wards in Point
Grey will be a live municipal question for the next few weeks and perhaps months. The municipality has
Increased so quickly in population
and in property assessments that, in
order to conform with the Municipal
Act, a new division of wards must
be made. Shall the district, which
now has five wards, be divided into
six, or seven, or eight Yhis is the
question which the council will have
to settle. It is also very probable
that at the elections in January a
plebiscite will be taken to determine whether the ratepayers favor
the establishment of a Board of Control.
Considerable uncertainty therefore
exists as to the manner In which
municipal affairs will be administered in Point Grey next year. Under
another ward system It is probable
that Shaughnessy Heights will have
Its own councillor, which, being a
pcrtion of Ward One, with D. L. 472,
It does not have at present. Assessor
Jehu Clemens has prepared tentative
plans showing division oi the municipality into six, seven and eight
wards. One of these bouiide Shaughnessy Heights on the east by Oak
street and on the west by Arbutus
street, thus cutting it off from the
rest of the municipality. Under two
other plans Shaughnessy Heights is
cut in two, the boundary line being
Granville street. Under none of the
plans ts the Eburne ward cut to any
great extent.
Councillor Cunliffe Is understood
to favor a board of control for the
municipality. When the by-law
creating the new wards comes up.
the question will be threshed out.

Match  Company   Directors   Plan
Eliminate Manual Labor Used
By Other Makers.
A tentative arrangement for raising sufficient money to build the
complete machine for match making,
which is to eliminate the manual
labor used by other companies, was
evolved at the stockholders meeting
of the Dominion Matcn Company,
Limited, held yesterday afternoon.
The meeting was convened in the
factory at Sapperton.
Two new directors were elected
In addition to the five already on the
board, Messrs. R. Mounce and Jame3
Woods.
Ways and Means.
Aid. White, who is a director of
the company, occupied the chair and
the meeting shortly got down to a
discussion of ways and means. It
was pointed out by the chairman
and by Mr. D. Whiteside, solicitor
for the company, that in common
with other concerns the corporation
was short of money and that this
condition of affairs was due to the
fact that stockholders who had given
notes for their shares had failed to
redeem their paper. Thero was
$100,000 thus owing to company,
which on its part owed nothing. The
real estate, building and machinery
were all paid for.
Mr. Whiteside assured the half
hundred shareholders present that
the realizable assets of the company
were quite sufficient to pay every
stockholder his money back. There
was no cause for any alarm that the
money invested would be lost. It
could all be recovered if jt were the
wish of the stockholders to wind up
the company.
Xo Talk  of Winclup.
Nobody, however, seemed at all inclined to wlndup the company. Aftet
some discussion, in which it was
brought out that about $4500 would
build the big machine, of which a
working model is now on the premises, it was resolved that those shareholders who had not paid up lor
their stock should be asked to pay a
small amount of their liability and
be given an opportunity to take
paid-up stock for the amount of cash
actually paid in, thus ending their
liability If they wished, the alternative being the forfeiture of their
stock     entirely.        Mr.     Whiteside
j pointed out that a small proportion
of  the  $100,000   outstanding "would
I put the company In a position to
build the machine it needed and
start manufacturing.
Tho meeting .passed off quietly.
An offer made by the promoters was
crnceded to be excellent and disarmed such criticism as might have been
contemplated. This offer was that
tiie promoters, who were paid for
their rights to the machine by a
block of stock amounting to 250.0011
shares and who still preserved that
stock intact, would not touch It and
would take nothing, if the shareholders wished to wind up th�� com-
j pany,  until every  investor had  got i tsr,
I his  money  back   with  interest  at  6 ! 34c
per cent.
Mr. Whiteside made this announcement early in the meeting on
ithe authority of the promoters nnd
Home Rule Will Be Made Effective

Asquith.
LADYBANK, Scotland, Oct. 27.���
Premier Asquith, straight from the
lecent meetings of the British Cabinet gave the country on Saturday
night the eagerly-awaited decision
of the government on the Irish problem which recently hare Decome befogged by various proposals for
conferences of the political parties
and by divergent utterances of the
members of the cabinet.
Mr. Asquith came out emphatically against the suggested formal
round-table conference, but betrayed a leaning towards a compromise
on the lines suggested by the First
Lord of the Admiralty, Mr. Winston
Spencer Churchill: namely, leaving
the northeast corner of Ulster to
remain under the Imperial Parliament for a limited period.
The Premier intimated that there
must  not  be  an  inseparable  barrier I
erected   which   might   permanently |
sever the unity of Ireland or might |
prevent    the     Protestant    minority J
from  ultimately    throwing  in   their i
lot   with   the   rest   of   their   fellow I
countrymen; but the speech is taken j
to indicate that if  the exclusion of
Ulster was the only means of a settlement by consent he would be pre- !
pared   to  agree  to  that  temporary j
arrangement.
Anxious as he shewed himself to |
be  for  a   ."riendly  settlement.   Pre- j
niier    Asquith    unhesitatingly    an-1
uounced  his  decision  to  establish a
parliament in Ireland in accordance
with  his  promise,   and  also   if  the
opposition    declined   'his   suggested
adjustment of the Ulster problem to
use the   armed forces of the nation
in carrying the law into effect.

VICTORIA, Oct. 24.���The need
for greater uniformity iu the educational systems of the Dominion of
Canada found eloquent expression
on Tuesday at the opening session
Of the tenth annual convention of
the British Co.UK-O.a Association of
School Trustees, held in the George
Jay school. Vernon hoard was responsible for bringing the matter be-
l'or the convention, and as it met
with a spontaneous response from
practically ail the delegates, a.
resolution endorsing the sentiment
was unanimously adopted, and it is
likely that fur:her action, with a
view to the attainment of practical
results, will foilow. Mayor Morley
welcomed the hundred delegates
present.
Tho evening session was opened
by the president, Captain D. Mcintosh's address, Mr. J. M. Wright being; in the chair. The president made
special mention of the institution
Which has been marking time, tbat
is the rural school. One stro.ig feature of the consolidated schools is
that the farmer's child has all the
advantages of a high school education at Its own home without extra
expense. One thing the people of
British Columbia ought to be thankful lor is that they are under no
obligation to provide schools and
teaching   in   different   languages.
The total cost of education ln
British Columbia for the year
amounted to ?3,882,488.47; the
previous year's total being $2,641,-
522.u'.i, and the president went on
to say that, although salary is not
everything that causes one to carry
himself well In a community, yet
to be well  remunerated has a won
derful effect in Stiffening
bones of most, men and women. After all our children are the greatest
asset our province has, and for
them we cannot do too much. The
progress within Ihe last few years
has been so rapid and inspiration so
great, that we are tempted to think
that   our   present   school   system   is
OTTAWA, Oct. 30.���According to
an official of the Department of Marine and Fisheries the reports lhat
have recently appeared in the press
to the effect that sockeye salmon
have ibis year been prevented from
reaching their spawning beds in the
Fraser river to tlle extent of decreasing the big fourth year run to
the proportion of an off-year, were
somewhat exaggerated.
Ill building its road along the side
of the river east of Hell Gate canyon, the Canadian Northern Railway allowed large quantities of rock
that was blasted out to fall into the
river. This resulted in a considerable change in the flow of the water,
The work was not performed during the past summer, but before the
run of tbe salmon to the river last
year, but notwithstanding during
last season the fish readily ascended.
Early Run Got Up.
This year the early run of salmon
got up, as is evidenced by the fact
that at the salmon hatchery at Shus-
wap lake, much farther up the river,
more salmon were caught in the
hatchery pens early in the season
than would be required to yield sufficient eggs to fill the hatchery.
As these tlsn would not spawn for
several weeks and as it is not desirable to hold fish 'in the pens for
a long time, they are liberated and
a later run relied on to fill the hat.h-
ery. Shuswap lake is but one of the
many resorts of spawning salmon in
the upper reaches of the Fraser.
The water level In the Fraser during the time the salmon were running was as a general thing unusual
for that season. It remained at
medium height much longer than ordinarily. In the latter part of the
the back-  season   when  the    water     was    at
WASHINGTON STATE.
medium  height   it  was  ascertained
that many fish were below the obstruction, and as a result a passageway was provided through which ;he
fish, then barred, got up.
Sufficient Got Up,
The   official .says  there     is   littl?
room   for  doubt  that  a   sufficiently

tigation many defects can be dis
covered. The problems of school
architecture, heating, ventilation and
sanitation have been solved, as also
most of the problems leading up to
utility; bul the question of beautifying school grounds has received
very lit lie consideration,
