Iiadner I'nablt/to Hold Speedy Island
Aggregation In Initial Quarter
Final  Score,  (t-1.
Pursuing   their   triumphant   way,
the    speedy     representatives     from I
Westham Island scored their second,
consecutive   win  at  the  expense  of:
the    I.adner    aggregation    of   stick!
Fielders   in   the   league   fixture   at I
Ladner on Friday evening.   The final
score   was  six   goalB  to   one  and   a
large gathering of enthusiasts    left;
the field disappointed ln the result.!
\ victory lor the Beavers was confidently expected,    but inability    to
settle  down   to   steady   play   In   the
earlier stages  of tbe game  was  responsible lor the loss of the match.

responsible  for  fewer  punctures  ofi

was in the limelight throughout the]
evening, playing the Inside home position t0 a nicety and incidentally ������
bagging four goals. He appeared to i

Saturday, June 21st, is the date
set apart for the annual shoot of
the Ladner Gun Club. Each season
most successful matinees, have been
held, many outside shots having been
attracted to Delta for an afternoon's

three events and failing to make con-,
neetlons with first or second money.
A special trophy is offered for pro-
tessional   high  average.
Entry money will be divided by
the Jack Rabbit system, i.e.: For
every bird broken ten cents will be
paid. Ten cents each for every bird
missed together with the added
money will be divided by the Rose
system. Through the entire programme three centB a bird extra will
be charged for entry, thereby making
the entry $1.95.
Refresh ments and shells will be
supplied on  the grounds.
The members of the club are at
present competing for two handsome
trophies presented by the Stevens
Arms Company and the Dupont Powder Company. The initial contest
took place last week. On account
of lacrosse matches on Tuesday evenings the weekly shoots have been
altered to Monday.

A wedding- of considerable local
interest was solemnized on Tuesday
morning at 9 o'clock at the home of
the bride's parents, 14 20 Barclay
street, Vancouver, when Miss Beatrice Waddell and Mr. Leonard Arthur Landon were united in the bonds
of holy matrimony. The bride is
the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John
L. Waddell and was for many years
a resident of I.adner. Many friends
and acquaintances are still remembered here. Rev. B. II. West, uncle
of the bride, performed the ceremony. Mr. and Mrs. Landon left for

The action of the McLelan Sawmill Company in laying off a large
number 0f their building crew on
Thursday morning was productive of
many conflicting rumors. In many
quarters it was reported that building operations had ceased and that
no more work would be done this
It was learned on enquiry that thc
laying off of the men was due to
delay in receipt of a portion of the
transmission machinery which left
Seattle last week. Up to the present
no trace of the car had been found,
and as everything is in readiness for
the installation, no other course was
open to the company.
"Immediately upon arrival of the
expected consignment, work will be
resumed," was tbe emphatic statement of Mr. O. A. Murphy, local
representative of the firm, when
questioned in reference to the matter.
The belting had already been ordered
but it was found necessary to cancel
tbe shipment pending receipt of the
lost machinery.
Everything will be in readiness for
work within a couple of weeks. The
boilers have been tested, the saws
have arrived and but for the unfortunate delay work would have gone
steadily on.

Attracts   Considerable   Attention   by
Trim Appearance ns She Lays
ai Brackman-Ker Wharf.
edmontom; June 12. ���- Hon.
Robert Rogers is due to arrive in
tbe city on Friday for the purpose
of investigating the public works
which are being carried on by the
Dominion government in this city.
Attracting considerable attention
hy her trim appearance as she lay at
the Brackman-Ker wharf on Sunday,
the mission boat Thomas Crosby, the
property of tbe Methodist church,
was an unexpected visitor in pon.
On board were Capt; Oliver, Dr.
White, and Mr. and .Mrs. McRae, attached to the mission field.
The Thomas Crosby is a staunch
and seaworthy craft, specially built
for service along the Northern B.C
coast. Her lines suggest a modern
liner 0n a smaller scale. The vessel
had just returned from a missionary
tour through the Gulf Islands between   Victoria and  tlie   Fraser.
The Thomas Crosby is a newly
newly built steamer of small tonnage and superseded the Homespun
in tbe mission field of the Methodist
church. She is very aptly described
as a travelling church, and manv
services have heen held in the commodious chapel.
Equipped with oil burning engines
and averaging from ten to twelve
knots per hour the vessel is ideally
suited to her purpose.
The engine room is situated amid
ships. kt addition to the marine
engines a gasoline engine for producing electric light, etc., is carried.
Forward on the main deck is the
wlieelhouse, with a minature chart-
room attached. Telegraphic facilities are provided and in case 6f accident the ordinary jingle is used. Below forward the crew's sleeping quarters are stationed.
Tbe galley and dining room ar?
situated amidships just forward of
the   engineroom.
The whole after portion of the
Crosby is devoted to a commodious
chapel. Adjoining are the staterooms of the missionaries. Provision
lockers are carried under the circular
seats of the chapel.
Quite a crowd of curious visitors
were courteously shown over the ship
by ber crew on Sunday evening, while
a brief song service took place on
the  vessel.
Dr. White and Captain Oliver both
addressed the congregations at the
Methodist church. The topic of the
sermons was naturally of a missionary nature and interesting persona!
anecdotes of experiences in the mission field were recounted by the
On the T. E. Ladner ranch this
week there was installed the latest
device in the way of oat crushers.
The new type of machine embodies
all the latest improvements in this
branch of agricultural machinery and
has proven very popular in many
European countries.
The crusher is manufactured by
Vassot & Company, of Joliet, Quebec,

manager   of   the   Ladner   estate,   the

Next the owner signs an agree-
ment to pay the municipality
through the municipal clerk, one per
cent, commission on the total price,
within seven days after the agree- j
ment for sale has been signed by |
the buyer. Thus definite particulars
of all necessary facts are recorded
and signed.

address being affixed, are distinguished by different colors for
160, SO, 40, 20, 10, 5 and "less

be settlers according to their requirements can select 1, 2, ?> or 4

at 25 cents each, after signing an
agreement to pay the municipality
one per cent, of the purchase price
to cover the cost of the municipal
bureau expressly designed for their

means of protection against fraud or
misrepresentation is provided by the
final paragraph, which reads:
"Subject to the reasonable convenience of the municipal assessor,
any prospective purchaser may
further obtain the advice of, and be
accompanied hy the assessor to compare the relative advantages in values of not more than 1 acres listed
BI this bureau, provided always that
Ihe prospective purchaser first deposits with the municipal clerk $10
for the assessor's minimum tee, and
by signing Contract II ln the bureau's journal, agrees that in the
event of the would-be-settler purchasing one or more of the areas to
which the assessor accompanies him.
the purchaser will increase the fee to
the amount derived by 1 per cent.
upon the total purchase price during the sevon days following the
dale of sale or lease, and lo pay 1

In * omp'n : :i_ the ; aymi ni cf ;\:.y

Mr. Cotsworth, in conclusion,
states: "The municipal assessor is
the responsible public official who
wben thus authorized, -should be
most competent to give disinterested
advice to would-be settlers concerning the lands thus made more freely   available  through   the   bureau.
"The advantage Langley resident
owners derive by only paying one
per cent, commission to the municipality instead of E per cent, to middlemen is one of the most attractive
features helping the district."

Government Is Wondering What
to do With Him.
OTTAWA, June 12.���It is announced that the Duke of Connaught
will almost certainly return in tbe
autumn to finish out his term in
Canada, and the government is beginning to wonder what can he done
with him.
At present the Rideau Hall premises are in the possession of an army
of caterpillars. The crawlers have
made the place almost uninhabitable
Before the month is ended Rideau
will be turned over to a contractor
and for six months will be in the possession of an army of stone-masons.
It will be no place for a Royal Duke
and his household.
It is said that if the Duke adheres
to his determination to return to
Canada the government will lease
one of the several extensive fesi-
dences of Ottawa and place it at His
Royal   Highness's  disposal.
It has also been suggested that
accommodation might be obtained
for him in the Chateau Laurier. The
contract for re-building Rideau Hall
will be closed next week.

N. It. Trad-laying Will Unit Here
Pending   Completion   of   the
Thousand-foot Bridge.
The railhead of the C. N. It. from
the wesl has reached Anderson
creek, and that is as far as it can
go for about three weeks, when a
Steel bridge over the creek will be
completed. Work on this structure,
which is to be an eleven-span viaduct 1000 feet long, was begun only
a week ago, but the C. N. R. people
are rapid bridge builders.
As soon as they get across Anderson creek, tho track layei-s Will have
a clear fifteen miles of completed
grade ahead of tliem. From the inception of the work the graders have
kept comfortably ahead of the tracklayers. Tracklaying, on the other
hand, is not being pushed too far
ahead of the ballasting work, as
there is no desire to run the rolling
stock long distances over a skeleton
track. A solid and completed track
is always only a short distance to
the rear of the railhead.
Divisional Engineer Swan states
that the railhead from the east will
meet the advancing railhead from
tbe west at about Albreda summit,
some forty mites west of Tete Jaime
Cache. He does not think that the
ends of the ribbons of steel can be
joined before next spring.

L. j the other negotiating churches, and
in view of the desire of all sections
of our church that the spirit of
Christian unity which obtains between the churches may be continued
Hn,l | and deepened, and in view of the
strength of the minority in our own
church which had not approved of
organic union as the best method
of expressing the unity of spirit
which is rapidly growing throughout
the Church of Christ, and in view
of the desirability of the utmost unanimity of action within our own
church, this committee proceeds to
consider the suggestions and alternatives remitted to lt, and recommends the General Assembly as follows:
"I, That the Assembly assure
the negotiating churches that the
Presbyterian church fully realizes
its share of responsibility in tbe
present movement and earnestly desires that the spirit of unity, which
has given rise to it may be conserved and deepened, and asks the other
churches to continue the negotiations in the hope that union may be
consummated without delay.
"2. That the union committee be
continued and that the fullest and
fairest consideration of every aspect
of the question, further amendments
to the present basis of union and alternative proposals be invited from
Presbyterians and from sessions, congregations and individuals throughout presbyteries and refevied to this
committee, in order that after considering them, it may enter into conference with 1he committees of other
negotiating churches with the vio.v
of setting before our people a final
presentation of the question for
their judgment.
"3. That in order to secure the
final judgment of the church the
findings of the joint romrai"ee of
the negotiating churches on all such
proposals be sent to prDshyterieF,
sessions and congregations, with the
details of the vote already taken and
all other relevant information."
These paragraphs are \o a 'arge
extent just as they were when they
were submitted to the Assembly by
the majority of the union committee.
The only alteration which was te-
garded as an important one. wr.s
one suggested by the Rev. David
Christie of Winnipeg. Mr. Christie
moved that the words "in the hope
that union may be consummated vilh
no unnecessary delay" be inserted,
instead of the phrase which was in
this place when the report of the
union committee was brought in. He
said it was desirable that the expression should be made much stronger,
and the assembly agreed with him.
Later on in the discussion of the
afternoon, November 30 of the present year was fixed as the last day on
which any suggestions would tie received with reference to changes in
the basis of Pinion.
The procedure of the church in
the future in the matter of obtain-
inc actual union, as explained by the
Rev. Dr. Ramsay, of Ottawa, will
be as follows:
Up to the end of Novemoer clerks
of presbyteries throughout the Dominion will receive any suggest ions
with reference to changes in the
basis of church union. In December the union committee will meet
in Toronto and after full consideration of all the proposed changes in
the basis of union, a joint meeting
will be held of the three union committees. These win agree en a
basis and the matter will then be
ready for submission to the General
Assembly of 1014.
That assembly will send the matter
to the members of the church if this
is deemed desirabfe for a vole, ind
to tbe presbyteries of the chumh under the barrier act; if a majority
of the presbyteries 'ake favorable
action the union will be consummated in 1015. As the mind of the
churches on tbe question is now
fully known, it does not appear that
there will be any failure in this

Woi-k of Session in Relation
to This  District.
"The Fraser river is the key to
the industrial development of New
Westminster," said Mr. J. 11. Taylor,
MP,, in discussing with Tbe British
Columbian this morning the work
nt the session from which he has
just returned. "We can have elevators if we can guarantee that at
the proper time there will lie water
enough lo take any .ship offering,
across the bar at tho mouth; we can
have Annacis and Lulu islands
studded with Industries; we can
have a modern dry-dock, for which
the Fraser river is the natural site,
all contingent on a satisfactory
answer Doing given to the question
most commonly asked, 'What water
will you have at New Westminster?'
"This feature l have played up in
my representations lo ilio government; ami 1 am happy to say that
the response lias been satisfactory.
True, a great part of the season lias
been wasted by the action of the
Liberal remnant in the House of

of the country by their small-souled
opposition to the Borden programme

and while New Westminster suffered
seriously by the delay some of her
own i Aliens, though few and in-
Bigniflcaai, were privately urging
on their friends at Ottawa to keep up
the waste of time. But when the
clusure was applied to the open-
mouthed and closed-purse patriots,
the government placed in the estimates enough money to carry ou all
the work that can be done on the
river in what remains of the fiscal
'For the main channel the jetty
will be rushed as fast as the contractors will carry on the work. And
the two government dredges will be
dedicated to assist Nature in the
making of the new and straight
channel now beng formed, along
the line of the jetty. The next obstacle in the main river is at the
mouth of the Pitt, where a bar is
to be removed to give access to the
shipping already being arranged for.
There is sufficient money appropriated for all of this work that can
be done within the year; and this
will be sufficient to avoid delay in
connection with the industries now
being established, though the complete scheme for the Pitt river cannot be carried out in less than several seasons.
���'Similarly with regard to the
North Arm. There is sufficient appropriation for the LeBaron scheme
of jetty and dredging suggested for
that neighborhood, and which will
give the start to what the proposed

of Saskatoon, and shown to be a

the advisability of devoting their

mining the land, as is so often, and
so disastrously, the case.
Mr. Sclandt'rs concluded by stating that even although his hearers
might think his scheme Utopian, he
isfied with the future and had now
every incentive to go forward and
press on the exploitation and development of this valuable section of
British Columbia which nature so
fully  justifies   that  they  should  do.

company when I say we trust that
he may be spared to be amongst us
f<_r many, many years (applause).
As a resident of the city of New
Westminster he is held in the highest esteem by the people in this town ;
and what I say with regard to this
city applies with equal force all over
the district and all over the province
of British Columbia where he is
known. By his honesty and integrity, and the courage shown in the
exercise of bis daily vocation, he occupies a high place in the esteem
of the people of the province of British Columbia. Mr. Sprott for many
years has been one of the civil service of British Columbia, which is
second to none the Empire over, and
it has been my good fortune to have
a good deal to do with the people
who work in the civil service of the
Icountry, and wherever it has been
I possible through any generosity of
Ithe government of British Columbia
Ito advance the status of the service
I in British Columbia, I have not hesitated to move;  and in this direction
business men of Saskatoon put
their knowledge of affairs into this
scheme in the same manner in which
they gave it to the great enterprises
in the city, that, with the knowledge
cf farming and business combined,
they could make the venture a success.
The farmer had to be shown that
it was an economic necessity that he
had to work twelve months in the
year like other men, so he thought,
that as wise business men, they
should not wait disaster which was
inevitable, would not wait for the
law which rights things through
tribulation, but would take time by
the forelock, and taking the advantages of ages of example, do
what would eventually become compulsory.
After a good deal of discussior. a
committee of three was appointed,
whose members were to look around
and ascertain if any land were available in a suitable locality and also
to sound other citizens on the subject, of financing the scheme.
