26.���This was a day of mouring In
Hull's Prairie, being the funeral day
of the late David W. Brown, J.P.,
one of the earliest and one of the
most valued and esteemed nf its residents. The attendance at the funeral
was very large���men and women,
young and old,

year, had begun to full soma two
months ago, hut, a fatal termination

serious aspect, resulting In death that
same afternoon, The married daughters: Mrs. Shields, Washington; Mrs.
Steward. Central Park; Mrs. Hyde,
wife of Rev, Mr. Hyde. Kamloops,
with their husbands, as well as all
the members of the family, were present at the funeral. Impressive services were conducted at the residence
of the late Mr.' Brown, by lit v. A.
Dunn, assisted by Rev. Mr. McRae.
Cloverdale, and Rev. Mr. Carpenter,
Methodist, Langley Prairie, all of
whom paid eloquent and touching testimony to the noble life of the deceased.
The address 0f Mr. Dunn, .who held
the first religious service In Hall's
Prairie, ln the year 1879, and was
Intimately acquainted with the deceased, is in part as follows:
The numerous calls which I have
lately been receiving to conduct services on the occasion of the funerals
of old friends are, I must confess,
very trying, especially to one of my
temperament. This is the third time
ln le9s than three weeks, on which I
have been called upon to conduct such
services. Looking up and down the
Fraser Valley, as friend after friend
departs, I am feeling more and more
like one who has been left alone. In
some settlements only one or two are
left of thosn who were heads of families between 1875 and 1885. Very-
many new settlers have come In; the
sons In many instances have taken
the places of their fathers; great
stretches oif land here an. there have
been cleared and settlements planted
where the forest once stood, So that
in these days, when I return to what
was once familiar ground, I not only
miss the well-remembered faces of
the pioneers, but also old landmarks;
and ths Very physical features of
some districts have been so changed
and Improved that I am in a manner
bewildered and brought to a standstill where at one time I could have
threaded my way ln the dark. These
changes and Improvements are very
gratifying. It is pleasing to see the
country progressing and prospering,
but the absence of loved faces Is not
joyous, but grievous, though we all
know well that these losses must
come and that we ourselves, having
served our day and generation according to the will of God, must also
pass off the stage of time and make
room for others. '
My first visit to Hall's Prairie was
made In the summer ot 1879. The
Prairie then was very much in the
condition in which nature had left
It. There were few Indications of
settlement. It was too much to one
side of my extensive field to receive
regular    Sunday  services,    though    I

Potato canker Is s disease al present unknown in Canada, it I** one
of the most serious diseases known,

which potatoes nre grown, but the
disease is also directly injurious to
the health of the consumer of affecte 1

the Injurious properties.   The disease
is characterized by nodular excrescences,* which may often be larger
than the tulur itself. These ",-ankers"
affect the eyes of the potato an.l are
very small in the early stages. Any
tubers found with smaller or larger
outgrowths rising from where the eyes
.25c 'are situated, should under no condl-
,i20c I tion be used for seed or table purposes. Th^ introduction and establishment uf this disease would seriously compruiiiiM,, otie of the most important agricultural industries ot Canada, viz., potato-growing. Farmers
and consumers should be exceedingly
careful in using potatoes that may
have been imported from Great Hritaln or the continent of Europe, Suspicious-looking tubers should be destroyed by fire, and not be thrown on
the ground, or the disease, If present,
will establish itself permanently in

1     Government Measure**' at Laurier'- Bidding.
1 OTTAWA, April 2.���The SenoJte, at
the bidding of .Sir Wi'lfrid Laurier,
I signalized tihe end of the session by
kllllivg four government measures. By
; one of its acts, the killing of the
j Highways Bill, it has dost the prov-
'Ince of Queibec 'he sum of $278,986
land  British Columbia  $54,660.
This    w-ns    one    of    Mr.    Borden's
specific  promises  in   the  recent  gen-
ler.il   election  und   w:is spe:-i'fi��vlly  ap-
'prxned by the people of Canada.      It
I tos   puit   before   the   House   at  Com-
'mons fresh from the people elected In
'part to puss Just sueh legislation. Sir
iWii'frld Laurier fought it in the House
��� of Commons,  and  opdered  his nomi-
[nees In the Senaite to kill it. Tihe Sen-
jate made  no end    otf    amendments,
some of whloh  the Commions aocept-
,'ed.     Two,   however,   it  could   not  accept as theiy would have rendered the
I bill  unwortti'hle.    The Senate Insisted
I on  every  syllable  of  every (change   it
had  originally  proposed,  with  tiie  result that th-rbill is dead.
The   Tariff   Commission     B'll     was
pronounced and was approved by the
people on Beptemlber 21. The creation of suoh a body was advex ati d on
n tihousand Oonservatl a platforms,
The   Liberals   fought   it   in   the   House.
[and Sir Wilfrid Laurier instructed "the
Senate to defy the mandate of the
I people.
The subsidy to the Teniiskamlng
an*d Northern Ontario Kadi way was
Hilled outright. Thos is a measure of
1 which ample notice had been given
before the election.
The bill lo aimcnd the Inspection
and Sales Act was refused consideration. The debate yesterday took
place wiholly upon the Tariff Commission Bill, and occupied the hour
which elapsed between the reasserm-
ly of the House at 3 o'clock and the
prorogation ceremonies at 4 oVlock.
Mr.   White   moved   thait   the   House
adhere  to  Its former attitude on  the
Senate's     amendment.       He     clearly
!demonstrated  the    unintelligible    na-
[ture   of   the   amendment   whloh   the
'senate wa.s insisting, and insisted that
1 the   Senate   a-nd   Sir   Wilfrid   Laurier
imust  accept   the   responsibility.       Sir
IWIIfrld   Laurier  defended  the Senate.
I and said that the rejection of the bill
1 would  be an unmixed  blessing.
1    When Mr.  Foslter rose he had only
ten minutes to apeak.    In a splendid
speech,  which  brought  the Conservatives   to   their   feet   with   enthusiasm,
he laid  the  remponsiMlity at Sir Wilfrid  Laurler's   door.     "We  are   fresh
from   the   people,   the   source   of   all
power,"  he axclalmed.  "After an agitation of six or eigiht months in parliament,  after a    campaign    in    the
country,   in   whloh     the    Issues  were
clearly stated,  the  Senate  ls overruling  the   people's     will.     Sir     Wilfrid
Laurier found himself defeated.    The
new   goveriiment  proceeded  to  Implement   Its   pledges.     It     had     a   plain
mandate.     Sir   Wilfrid   had   met   his
���political death.
"Why is he alh-e now?" called some
one   in   Opposition.
"How is he alive?'' replleid Mr. Foster, '"by virtue of the men fed by him
with patronage, wtro are earning the
positions he gave theim."
Like busy, bees using the sun-Shine,
Sir Wlltfrld Laurier during hie season of power had plaeed Ma own
heelers ln another part ocf porl-Uaiment.
When he died he hoiped to live *w��-in
in those whom he had plaiced in the
Senate. Did Sir Wiltfrid Laurier
share the responsibility? No, it was
his responsibility. It was not the
Senate. It was Sir Wi'lifirld Laurier
who Tiad   done  those things.
"We place the responsibility on
him," Mr. Foster exclaimed, "though
I he may be suoceeeful now, the hours
ils coming when he will rue this III-
|advlse_ insurgence of the unpopular
ibranch of this 'parliament against the
(people's  will."
The debating of the    session    then

Mr. T. 3. Trapp may Justly regard himself as one of the old-timers
of the Royal City, and during his residence, which dates back as far es
the year 1S73, when he first came to the city, he has held many of thi
most Important positions of trust In the gift of the citizens.
He was for many years secretary, and has been for many years
chairman of the school board, and has always taken a lively interest In
matters of education.
He was one of the charter members of the Royal Agriculturist & Industrial Society, and for some year- held the position of secretary, ard
also that of president.
He was one of the first directors of the N'ew Westminster ar ;
Southern Railway. He was elected secretary of that organization, ar,.:
ever, now, after the like has been absorbed by the O.N.R., still holds th-
official position.
He was for years secretary of the Board of Trade and was one 0!
the delegates who went to Victoria years ago to ask the government : r
a half-mllllor.-dollar grant towards the bridge for tho Fraser River. He,
with Mr. Curtis and Mr. J. C. Brown, succeeded in securing from the g"\-
ernment the promise of the payment of the interest on the amount of
money required to the extent of $15,000 per nnr.unj.
Mr. Trapp has also been greatly Interested in the erection and completion of the Y.M.C.A. building and equipment, and at the present
time Is chairman 0f the Y.M.C.A. director's board. Always a very public-minded citizen and always wide awake to the public interests and
ready to throw his Influence wherever it meant the advancement of tho
public good, he can be truly classed as one of the foremost of New Westminster's men of affairs.

VICTORIA, March 30.���Congratulatory nessgges from near and far
poured in upon Premier McBrido yesterday, many scores of fncr.ds in e-"ch
ef the provinces of Canada, with several in the Homeland, making the occasion of the most unique and complete political victory ever won In
Canada the text of wired felicitations.
Messages from Premier Border, and
the majority of his ministers - were
among the first to be received, while
numerous eastern parliamentarians
were also heard from duping the day.
Belated returns coming to hand today do not affect the general or the
detailed results of the contest, although they leave it as doubtful whether or not Messrs. Holt and Henderson will sacrifice their deposits in
Cariboo and Llllooet respectively. In
tho former two-member constituency,
the total votes according to last reports arc 288 for Mr, J. A. .'riser, 245
for Dr. Callanan, and 15C for Mr.
Holt, the Liberal challenger. Several
polls removed from wire facilities,
were still to be heard from, those containing In the aggregate about 110
votes, supposedly strongly Conservative. In Llllooet last reports totals
were 107 for Mr. McDonald, C in., an '
ti," for Mr. Stuart Elenders n. Lib,

money, although it will be a close
thing if he does so. The last general
result as te.egraphed gave Mr. Lucas
re-elected by 216 votes, with five polls
to hear from, containing 82 votes. The
figures, excluding these, are in the
final reckoning, Lucas 445; McConnell, 22..
In * nl nm 1 > li the result predicted in
yesterday's Issue comes to pass, Mr.
H. G. Parson, the representative of
the district in the last two parliaments, meeting defeat at the lianas of
his Conservatns neighbor, Mr. For-
ster, by a majority of 17. This constitutes the only riding in tho province in which a memoer of the last

No details of the vote ln Cowichan
have as yet reached Victoria, Mr. Hay-
ward's victory there being so conclusive as perhaps to induce a charitable
silence as to figures. Private advices
state that the Conservative candidate
who served as deputy speaker ln the
past two assemblies, ran out his Liberal antagonist by a score of five to
one���perhaps the most comprehensive
victory of the contest.
Hon. Mr. Me.Phillips, in the Islands,
records a majority of 250, his Independent-Conservative opponent, Mr.
Winch,  losing his deposit.
From Comox the news Is that Mr.
Michael Manson wins out by a very
handsome majority ovur Mr, Lefcaux,
