At the "hotel at Mayne island the
party put up for the night. A telegram was despatched to Ladner
about seven o'clock and one of the
surprising features of the whole occurrence was that this telegram was
not delivered until after ten o'clock
or: the following day. Alarm was
felt in some quarters for the safety
of the picnic party, and there was
talk of sending out a boat in search
of them.
Monday night at seven o'clock the
party left Mayne Island on the Queen
City and reached Vancouver about
half past eleven, too late to seciirc
transportation by rail. Two automobiles were requisitioned for the
night ride to the Delta. All went
well until the Scott hill was encountered. Here the going became

difficulties, and a delay of nearly
two hours ensued, lt was a weary

Expense Entailed Precludes Work Is
Advice  tu  Board  of  Trade
���Is Desirable.
That the Public Works Department recogn'zes that the ojenlng ot
the River road between Ladner and
the J. Kerr Wilson farm is a desirable piece of work, but that the expense incident to it and the amount
of work now in hand in the Delta
does not warrant iis being undertaken by the provincial government
this year, is the gist of a communication received by Mr. S. W. Fisher,
secretary of the Hoard of Trade, from
Engineer J- C. Griffith, of the Public
Works Department.
Some time ago the Hoard of Trade
took up this matter of tlie opening
up 0f River road, which is unquestionably a needed improvement, and
approached the provincial authorities
with reference to its execution.
The feeling of the provincial authorities is that as a considerable
sum of money will be expended this
year on the Ladner-Wood ward's
ferry, outlay 0n the Aiver road would
hardly be Justified. In connection
with the ferry the engineers have
this week been occupied in locating

Then Western municipalities sell a
large amount of securities. If the
buyers want to sell back where there
are no buyers, they will say: 'What

want to realize at times, and if they

country would be unfavorable, to ]
say the least."
Railway Policy.
Speaking of the progress of Can- |
ada in the way of building railways
Mr. Hill said that the Dominion had
enough mileage at present for eight '
million to support.
The veteran railway builder and
operator indulged in a mental calculation, and thought that Canada hns
now more mileage according to population than the United States, and
although he had no desire to interfere he intimated that it would be
better to go slowly.
"What ii your opinion as to the
policy of the Federal government
subsidizing railways in this country?"
"I cannot say that it is a wise
one," he said, "as it causes lines to
be built that will not pay for a long
time to come."
CAMBIE, Lulu Island, July 9.���
Cleveland & Cameron, surveyors to
the municipality, reported to the
tcuncil on Monday that they had
found no natural difficulties in the
way of constructing a combined dyke
and road along the North Arm near
the No. 6 road. A peat bog extended
to within three hundred feet of the
river bank, but a distance of 400
feet from the river they had found
no place where the depth of the peat
would prevent erection of a dyke.
Four feet six Inches above the existing ground would be sufficient
height  for a dyke, it was stated.
It was decided to notify the own-
u* of the Chinese building at the
east end of the Eburne traffic bridge
to remove the portion of the structure encroaching upon the road allowance. The municipality proposes
to locate a scow lauding at this
point on the river.

Splendid   Market   Exists   in   British
Columbia for All Local
(From thc Chilliwack Progress.)
F.  J.   Roberts,   an   expert   in  the
poultry business, in giving his answer
to a question:  "Is there a living in
poultry?" says:
Many people have started In the
pouitry Lusiness and have failed to
make it ;jay, and will tell you that
there is no profit in keeping poultry;
but I will tell you right now that
there is a good living and a good
profit to be made from poultry, with
eggs selling at 40 cents per dozen
on the average throughout the year,
and the same can be produced for
16 cents per dozen, and broilers can
be raised to 1V& lbs. for 15 to IS
cents each from the egg, and the
market is right here for all we can
produce, for British Columbia is importing to the extent of $2,500,000
���worth of poultry products annually, and if you start right and not
in too big a way at first, if you -io
not kno>v tlic business. I think many
failures are due to not sticking to
It; many persons get disheartened
and give up because they do nol get
the big returns at once, and you can
not expect to start any business and
get a profit on the outlay right away;
lt will take two or more years before
you can expect to get returns on the
capital  Invested.
Poultry farming is a business that
must be developed; It cannot be hui't
up in a month or a year; the man
who starts at the bottom of the l.i-l-
der and goes slow at first will eventually get to the top. Some persons
get discouraged and sell our thf."r
stock just as they are beginning to
pay. They have raWed their chi.tl.s
too late in the season, and kept then-
pullets all through the winter, without an egg, and just as they are
beginning to lay good they give up,
and say that their hens have eaten
their heads off, and that there If
no profit in keeping poultry, and sell
out to the first person that comes
along and offers any price at all
I know from experience that there
is a good living to be made from
poultry, not from a fancy point only.
where they breed for the showroom,
and get. $2.50 or more per setting
of eggs and from $5 to $10 each
for stock, but eggs and poultry for
market alone; and I -know people
personally that are making from $1
t0 $2 per hen, clear profit, per year
on every hen they keep, and every
one of these people started 1n a small
way. One started with a dozen hens
and now keeps between five and six
hundred. TheBe people are making
a good living and saving money besides. I think it best To start id
the poulthy business on, say 5 acres
of land���that is as much as one man
can manage���with 500 chicks. 1
would prefer land that sloped to tbp
south, dry and well drained. Duibl

point facing the south; not expensive
buildings, but dry and free from
draughts, with plenty of ventilation.

your stock. We will say o_ ��� dozen
hens and a cork bird, of a popular
variety, preferably pure-bred; ther
commence to breed up your flock of
layers, and bere Is the vital point.

Ing the months of March and April,
and for the lighter varieties, such
as Leghorns, Minorcaa and Hamburgs, in April and May; and to have
strong, vigorous chicks you must
have strong, healthy, vigorous parent,
stock, and to have such stock there
should be plenty of straw or litter
for them to work in, for' you must
remember that activity io the life
of the hen. Exercise plays an important part in the egg production,
and the number of eggs produced
depends on the health of the hen,
and her vigor comes from her activity t0 a large extent.
Feeding:���Every poultryman has
his own way of feeding. Wheat is
the safest and best grain to feed
for the main ration, with oats,
cracked corn, and barley for a
change. Green feed they must have,
and plenty of it. It Is surprising
how much green food a hen will
eat; grass, clover, cabbage, anything
that is green in "winter; roots, such
as beets, carrots, mangolds, plenty of
grit and shell, fresh water two or
three* times a day in summer, and
i'. should be put in the shade. All
these little things must be attended
to in order to make a living from
poultry. A good thing to remember
is that a laying hen is like a good
^mllk cow, every little bit extra in
the way of meat, or bone, or grain
that she gets will pay back with interest In the egg basket, and a good
cow will put every extra bit of food
she gets into the milk pall. Hen-*
are much the same as cows. You
can scarcely fatten a good milch cow,
and the same with a laying hen, she
produces eggs instead of fat; a fat
hen does not lay many eggs and a
fat cow does not give much milk,
so you see the main thing is to breed
laying hens  and  not  fat  ones.
Another vital point is cleanliness.
The house wants to be cleaned often,
at least once a week, and coal oil
or other disinfectant put around the
roosts and drop-boards. Lime is a
good thing around; the houses must
ge kept free from vermin; you can
not have eggs and vermin.
In conclusion, I will say, at'end
to all the small matters, and \vitb
a right start in a small way with
pure-bred, stock, and enlarge your
plant as you succeed, and you will
make a "good  living from poultry."
Serpentine Concrete Work Completed
Today���Nicomekl Finished in
Seven  Days.
���'"-'rom The British Columbian.)
Work on the dams across the Serpentine and the Nicomekl is rapidly
nearing completion. The Serpentine
dam will be all concreted today and
that across the Nicomekl will be completed In about a week.
Progress recently on this work
has been very rapid and engineering
experts consider the dams quite an
achievement. By an ingenious arrangement of swing gates, which
open and shut automatically the
pressure of the Incoming tide closes
the gates when a certain level has
been reached.
When the pressure from the outside is removed by the falling away
of the overplus of tidal water the
gates swing open and the normal current flows to the sea. The contractors are M. P. Cotton & Co., of Vancouver, and the work has been done
under the supervision of Mr. H. C.
Brlce, C.E.. of New Westminster on
behalf of the dyking commissioners.

CAMBIE, Lulu Island, July 8.���
With many communications, petitions, and much general business, besides requests made in person by individual ratepayers, to be given consideration, the regular July meeting
of the Richmond council, held yesterday, was a very busy one.
Three Important petitions, the first
dealing with a carline along the No.
5 road, the second with local improvement work on Odlin road, and
the third with important drainage
work, were received. Reeve Bridge
and Councillor Gay were appointed
a committee to join with a coaimit-
te. of the property owners along the
No. 5 road In working for the widening of that road and the Installation
of an electric tramway along it to
Woodward's Landing.
Mr. F. A. Tomsett and others put
forward a plan for drainage which
would create better conditions for
Alexandra townsite, Into which district a huge volume of water from
the Richmond rifle ranges seeps
throughout the year, souring the
���oil and making successful agriculture very difficult.
These petitioners urged that a
ditch eighteen feet wide at the top
and seven feet at the bottom be constructed from Gordon road along the
No. 4 road to the North Arm,
where an outfall of several feet
eould be secured. As the work would
largely contribute to the drainage of
the rifle ranges, which are the property of the Dominion government,
the residents were of the opinion
that the government should pay the
Reeve Bridge stated that drainage along the No. 4 road had been
left to the Lulu Island West Dyking
Commission, and that the petition
should be presented to that body.
On Odlin  Road.
Following out the plea of the
signers of auother petition, the road
overseer was given instructions by
the council to proceed at once with
the improvement of Odlin road. In
the space of half a mile, eighteen
families live along this street, and
the need for a good road is keenly
felt, especially in wet weather. The
rocking or planking will be done
under a local improvement plan.
Cowan, Ritchie & Grant, the municipal solicitors, notified the council that the proposed method of
meeting the cost of a new survey of
Lulu Island east of the No. 5 road
was impracticable under the existing
statutes. The suggestion had been
entertained by the council that the
expense be met by levying a special
rate over a term of years, the Initial cost of the work being met by
borrowing a sum from the sinking
fund In anticipation of the collection
of the rate. The solicitors stated
that this could not legally be done.
The deputy attorney-general notified the municipality that $240 for
tines and $556 for maintenance, a
total of $696, was due the provincial
government on the police account.
On the condition that the foreshore rights would not Interfere with
the rights of the municipalities in
street ends, the council approved the
plans of  foreshore between the B.
C. E. R. bridge and the Lulu Island
traffic bridge, submitted by Mr. R.
D. Rorison.

SEATTLE, July 10.���With th<=
largest crop of raspberries In the
history of the valley fast ripening,
the ranchers of Puyallup are greatly
in need of pickers to assist them ln
handling the fruit. Several thousand
pickers are already working ln the
valley, but at least 10,000 more are
needed. As a special Inducement to
jthe pickers-who will stay throughout
the season the ranchers have arranged to pay a bonus of five cents a crate
to those helpers who remain with
them during the rush. The regular
price paid heretofore for raspberries
was 35 cents a crate.
The ranchers furnish them their
sleeping accommodations and are at
present arranging for amusements to
be given In the evening to entertain
the field workers. The Puyallup
grocers will run deliveries to the
residences 0f the pickers and everything necessary for theia comfoit has
been arranged.
To many the summer spent in the
berry fields appeals like a country
outing. Whole families are desirea
and the children by their summer's
work are enabled to become self-
supporting during the school year.

$1000 n Dav lor Milk.
EVERSON, Wash., July 10.���
Forty-five thousand pounds of milk
collected daily within a few miles of
Everson, drawn here by a dozen
teams covering as many milk routes
and processed, later appearing ln
commerce as the best condensed milk
on earth, the Northwest Washington
brand bearing the well known carna
tlon. Almost a thousand dollars Ii
distributed daily among the dairymen
of this comparatively small district,
when it is remembered that but a
couple of miles eastward a big creamery is In operation, and the Belling
ham creameries and dairies being
strong competitors for milk aad
cream, and just west of Eve'rson the
Lynden and Laurel creameries operating. Acre for acre, farm for farm,
more money is being distributed here
for milk than any other part of
Washington, and nowhere else are
the effects so plain in good farms, up
to-date buildings, good roads, good
schoofs, good stock and autos with
farmer drivers.

"The Old Order
TT* his is an oft-quoted phrase, but nowhere is it
more truly applicable than in regard to advertising. We need not be so very old to remember the day when we eyed all advertisements
and advertisers with suspicion. The advertisements we regard as traps to catch the unwary
and the advertisers as "quacks'' or "fakers."
Not so many years ago a woman picked up a
newspaper and exclaimed:
"Just listen to this: 'Blank & Blank desire to
call the attention of their patrons to their summer importations of suits and wraps.' I never saw
Blank & Blank advertise before. I wonder if they
are going to get cheap!"
A few weeks ago the same woman said to a
friend: "I had been hunting all over for that oriental embroidery and had given up finding it
when I just happened upon the very thing I
wanted at Blank & Blank's. I told the man it was
a pity they had not advertised it and saved me
tramping all over the city."
This is a true story. The same woman, the
same shop, nothing changed but the time and
the point of view.
Women to-day feel aggrieved if the dealers do
not keep them informed of their stock through
a medium of a newspaper of worth like THE

Hard to Raise First Class Team in
Victoria   in   Mid-Season���
Simpler Methods Needed.
(From The British Columbian.)
According to Con Jones' press
agents, that gentleman has gone .over
to Victoria to Investigate the teas*
Iblllty of arranging a series of games
there, which will be done provided
the Capital City can field a flrst class
lacrosse team. This is the bind of
noise with which Con guffs the Vancouver public.
With all due respect to the city
across the Gulf, for which New Westminster has ever had a tenaar regard,
the idea is rather foolish. Victoria
was denied a place m tnn B. C. L.
A. at the beginning of this season
for no other reason than that It
could not field a first class team
this season. How then would lt be
possible to do this in the middle of
the season, when practically all the
known players in the civilized world
are already under contract. Even
Con Jones' warriors did not spring
forth full-panoplied like Mercury
from the brain of Jove. But why
pursue the subject further. Fans
will pease not laugh too loud.
There is, of course, a possibility
that Con Jones' definition of a flrst
class lacrosse team may differ from
that commonly accepted in New
Westminster. Fact is, the standard
of lacrosse is rather high on the
banks of the Fraser. It might be
possible to get together a bunch of
pretty stickhandlers in the Capital.
Not up to championship form, perhaps, but still, nifty little lacrossists.
Unfortunately, games between this
aggregation and Con's battle array
would hardly have the same drawing
power, even in Victoria, as If the far-
famed Salmon Bellies, holders of the
Minto Cup, were on the field, while
In Vancouver���well, the Vancouver
fans don't fall for anything so feeble
as that.
As a scheme to save Con from
bankruptcy and reduce the financial
loss consequent on a continuance of
his idiotic tactics, the plan is not so
dusty, but probably it will be found
simpler to fire Con, replay last Saturday's game (without Ion and Griffiths) and proceed with the schedule.

Comrades    Cut Seeley Adrift���Five
Days Was Without Food
and  Water.
PRINCE RUPERT, July 9. ��� A
rightful tale of the sufferings of
Reginald Seeley on Wright Sound,
where he was cut adrift in a boat by
the men who towed him and drifted
for five days without food or drinking water, is told by A. W. Chappie
of this city. Mr. Chappie has Just
returned from Lowe inlet, where the
unfortunate man was picked up.
Seeley, some eight days ago, was
teing towed in his launch, which
was without gasoline, by hls two
companions ln another launch, the
Lavie. In this boat he owned a half
interest. While he was not looking
his comrades, it is alleged, cut him
adrift and made off with the Lavie.
Seeley, left in his launch without]
any means of propelling it and without anything to eat or drink, drifted
for five days and nights in a great
agony of thirst and starvation. He
wag at last picked up in an almost
crazed condition by Manager Curtiss of the Lowe Inlet Canneries.
The I.avie touched in here a few-
days since and the men in her stated
that they were going south. She is
siated, however, to have been seen
later bv another vessel nnd she was
then reported as heading for the

Westminster   Knows   Whether   Con
Jones or J. A. Virtue Ides���Vancouver Should Get Wise.
(From The British Columbian.)
On Monday evening, President
Kellington, of the B.C.L.A., dispatched to the Vancouver papers a
complete resume of all the circumstances leading up to Saturday's
fiasco, when the New Westminster
lacrosse team walked off the field
at Hastings Park, refusing" to play
a scheduled game.
This resume included copies of all
the correspondence preceding the
meeting; Con Jones' request for it,
a report of the meeting, held last
Friday, a copy of Referee Dewar's
report on the game in Victoria on
June 28 and other particulars. It
was devoid of any comment whatever, mere setting the official uo.-u-
ments In their natural order. Piior
to this the Vancouver papers had
each been .supplied ,vi_h a copy of
Referee Dewar's report, in which he
condemned the two Vancouver players, Griffiths and Ion, for brutal
attacks on two players from this
So far the Vancouver papers have
not published either the referee's
report, which they had in time fer
last Saturday's papers, or the resume
of the actual facts '.Ming up to
the cancelled game which they received in time for yesterday's issu.s,
with the exception of the Vancouver
Why? That is a fair question.
The facts are news which uuder any
other circumstances they would be j
glad to publish. There are thousands of good sports and unprejudiced fans In Vancouver who would
follow the facts with keen interest.
The sport writers ot the Vancouver
papers know this and it is through
ther hands that this material must
pass. Then why don'' they pub.'is.*
it and show up the ��vao'e situation
so that their readers may get the
trur  facts of the case?
The Shameful Tr ith.
The answer is simj-'e. The facts
show that Con Jones played a short- j
sighted, dirty and unsportsmanlike'
part and the sport writers of the,
Vancouver papers get more fo? keep- [
lug these facts out of their papers j
than   for putting them in.
However, it cannot always last, j
This is shown by the fact that when I
The British Columbian published Mr.
Virtue's letter on Monday afternoon |
it was reprinted in one Vancouvei
paper and the sense of it in another.
But not in the sport columns. Oh,
no, in another column where it was
put by a man who knew news when
be saw it, and was not paid to keep
it out. It got there because* it was
sent over from here as New Westminster news by local correspondents
and missed the fatal waste paper
basket of the sport writer. The resume of the affair published by the
Provinco was also relegated to a
place far removed from the sporting
pages. Con Jones will ,-en'ly have
to get busy with his slush fund over
here or otherwise his methods will
yet   lie  exposed   even   in   Vancouver.
Regarding the letter from Virtue.
This is particularly well worthy of
consideration in Vancouver. Mr. Virtue, a well known sporlsman, favorably known as such in this province
for close on 20 years, a delega.e from
Victoria to B. C. L. A., says that Cor*,
Jones told him last Friday in Vancouver that the B.C.L.A. meeting
which he crossed the Gulf to attend,
had been postponed until this week,
so he went to the races instead of
coming on  here.
Thus writes Mr. Virtue to Secretary Lynch, of the B.C.L.A. If Con
Jones told Mr. Virtue that, then Con
Jones Is an obvious liar. If Con
Jones did not tell Mr. Virtue tnat,
then Mr. Virtue is a liar, but there
will be few, if any, who will accept
the latter alternative. They would
have to be the very blindest admirers of Con Jones to even profess
to accept it and then they would
know very well they were lying
Never Again   Will His    Team Meet
the Naughty Salmon BeUies���
Aspires to Bullring.
(From the British Columbian.)
Con Jones, the gentle__an who
runs the Vancouver Lacrosse Club
and the sport writers of the Terminal
City, is a man of great optimism
and considerable belief in the results of his labors. And in common with other great optimists, he
is somewhat prone to boast. For
after all, what is a boast but the exuberance of opimism? Not all of
Con's boasts have come true. For instance, he assured the lacrosse fans
of British Columbia last week that
"there would he a game, and Griffith and Ion will play."    Just so.
But, undaunted by the non-fulfilment of that rash prophecy, Con has
made another boast. He says that
after calm deliberation and it is supposed some anxious searching of
heart, he has definitely decided never
again to field a team against New-
Westminster. Now, even a boastful man's boasts are sometimes fulfilled. Particularly is this so when
he tnkes the precaution of dealing
in probabilities. It is not very likely that Vancouver will never again
meet New Westminster on the lacrosse field, but it is quite on the
cards that when the Greenshirts
again face the Salmon Bellies they
will not be fielded by Con Jones.
Con has other striking characteristics besides his optimism. He is
migratory in his habits, and bas a
habit of identifying himself with the
popular pastime of the country in
which he happens to sojourn. Hence
his interest in lacrosse in Canada,
and if rumor for once does not lie,
his attachment to lhe ponies in Australia. Under all the circumstances
it would not surprise New Westminster fans to hear that Con had aspiration to run a ball team in the
United States, a bull ring in Mexico,
or even a minor revolution in South
America. A mere Captain of Industry does not attract Arthur, but
he might be attracted by the title of
Chevalier of that distinguished order.

LONDON, July 8.���The "Cat and
Mouse Act" is to be the subject of
a big meeting of protest to be held
tonight at the Queen's hall under
the auspices of the National Political
League, one of the most Influential
of the non-militant woman suffrage
It was this organization that led
in the successful agitation against
the forcible feeding of suffragette
prisoners, and the leaders are now
just as determined to effect the repeal of Home Secretary McKen-
na's latest method of dealing with
hunger strikers.
"We are not militant today," said
Countess de La Warr, one of the
prime movers in the league's new
crusade, in explaining the purposes
of the meeting to the United Press,
"but we are not prepared to stand
aside and see women sent to death
for offenses that, after all, take place
in the course of political agitation,
and committed for unselfish motives.
.Makes More Trouble.
"We feel that the moment has
arrived tor a strong protest against
the present policy of the government,
That policy is one of extreme coercion against the unrest due to the
existence, of a great grievance, and
there is no coincident attempt to remove that grievance. Such a treatment of a deeply felt question, at
once unstatesmanlike and fundamentally wrong, can only fan the
flames of discontent and create still
greater unrest and social disturbance.
"The outcry against the practice
of forcible feeding culminating at
our great demonstration in Kings-
way hall on March 18, has forced the
withdrawal of that method of injuring the health and endangering the
lives of the women involved, not,
however, before it had been made
clear that the women were prepared
to sacrifice their lives even through
ihat form of torture.
"The alternative legislation which
the Home Secretary forced through
parliament, in the form of the so-
called "cat and mouse" act, is no
less cruel. The country is now faced with the fact that in its operation women can be done to death,
and are facing death, by this new-
form ot 'inquisition.' the legality of
which can be seriously questioned
and the ineffectiveness of which, to
produce the desired result, has already clearly been demonstrated.
"Mrs. Pankhurst is now in a most
grave condition, and has already suffered more than political offence can
warrant yet she is again to be arrested, and again to go through another 'hunger strike' which will certainly mean her death."

CAMBIE, Lulu Island, July 8.���
The matter of Sunday labor by Orientals in Richmond was gone into
by Chief of Police Needes in his
report to the municipal council yesterday afternoon. He stated that
he had warned the Japanese stores
in Steveston that they must sell
nothing but candy, tobacco, cigars,
ice cream and fruit on Sunday, and
thus far they had obeyed tbe in-
juiiclion. The Japanese stores dealt
also in groceries, he said, and it
Would be working a hardship to
compel them to place a partition between the latter and the candy, tobacco aud fruit.
On a visit to Sea Island, Sunday,
June 22, he had found two gangs of
Chinese working in the fields, one of
nine men and the other of six. They
affirmed that the situation forced
them to work on the seventh day, because of the high rent they paid and
because the rainy weather assisted
the growth of weeds. One Chinaman be found hauling manure on
the No. 6 road, and a second hauling hay on Sea Island, to both of
whom he gave warning to refrain
from such work in the future.
Chief Needes further reported that
he had examined the piggeries on
the No. 5 and No. 20 roads and
found them in an improved state;
that sixteen cases, four of a serious
nature, had been dealt with by the
police magistrate; that a motorcycle had been purchased for the
use of the department; and that
close watch was being kept upon
motorists, with the result that there
had been very little speeding.

Hay Cutting Had Begun Saturday���
Present Is Worst Season Yet
CAMBIE, Lulu Island, July 7.���
Just at the moment when impatient
Richmond farmers were hoping that
the heavy rains which characterized
the whole month of June, were at an
end, rain fell ln torrents yesterday
through a thunderstorn lasting with
various degrees of intensity through
several hours. Quite a number of
farmers had set their machines to
work cutting grass all day Saturday,
and there was much grass flat on the
Wholesale loss on Lulu and Sea
Island will result if the present weather continues. The gra_*s is now
ripe for mowing, and its growth has
been so rapid and rank through the
past flve weeks that it Is beginning
to fall under its own weight. The
crop is not so heavy as it bas been
in some years, but still is a good
one, and the farmers will be entirely satisfied if they are permitted to
harvest it in clement weather.
Several of the old inhabitants say
that the present season has been
one of the worst for agriculture since
their residence on Lulu Island. It
was extremely late In starting, with
cold weather prevailing through
March and April, and the amount of
rainfall is thought to have been the
greatest in the last forty years. The
fair day has been the exception, not
the rule.
If the weather clears, haying will
be general all over Richmond this
week. The larmers believe that
labor will be much more plentiful
than in previous years, with the
wages paid somewhat smaller.
Any corrections ln above names or
times should be sent to the office
of the Delta Times, Ladner. B.C.
