The game on Friday last between
the Wood. Vallance and Leggatt
team of the Wholesale League, Vancouver, and the home team resulted
in a win for the latter by 3 to 2. The
��ame was not as close as the score
indicates as a bad decision on R.
W Nous home run drive over the
lefl field fence in the second inning
robbed I.adner of two counters. His
umps called it a foul but It was really fair by a wide margin. Hastings
ciitpltrhed Sparks and held a safe
lead all the time. In the first, hits
by Webster and R. Wilson and a
double by H. Wilson resulted In two
runs for the home team. In the
tiui-l. H. Wilson's hit, a stolen base,
("iiiqhon's sacrifice and Smith's
single brought in another run.
The visitors scored their first run
in the third inning when Dutch
overthrew to second, the ball taking
a had bound over the centre fielder's
head and going celar to the fence
Their other run came In the sixth
when singles by Maitland and Storey
and Stuart's sacrifice brought in
their last tally.
H. Wilson starred with the stick
retting two singles and a double in
three times at bat. A large crowd
witnessed the game, the ladies, who
are always admitted free being present in large numbers. The teams
lined  up  as   follows:

THE HEALTH
OF PUPILS
Dr.    King,    Medical    Inspector    of
Schools,   Submits  Interesting
Report. ���
Dr. King, medical inspector of
schools of the Delta municipality,
submits the following report for the
year ending June 30, 1914.
During the year Dr. King made
two regular examinations of the children of the various schools of the
district, together with the school
buildings, lavatories, etc., besides
this several special visits were made
to the following schools: Boundary
Bay twice, to investigate an outbreak of chicken pox In which case
it was thought advisable to close
the school for two weeks; Annieville one, to investigate reported
cases of scarlet fever. These were
duly reported to the medical health
officer for iinarantine and as no further cases developed the school was
kept open. Dr. King wa.s called once
to Westham Island to investigate reported cases of whooping cough,
which were found to be severe colds
with bronchitis. The children were
kept home until the coughs had subsided. Such conditions not only disturbed the schools, but children with
bad colds are not in a physically fit
o'-dition to be at school and are
better at home until cured.
A visit  was made to the  Ladner
graded school to investigate reported   cases   of  scabies   (itch)   but  he
found  the  school   free     from  such I
disease.

The feature of the board of trade
meeting, held on Monday night, waa
the presence of a delegation from
the Fraser Valley Development League, consisting of the president, L.
E. Marmont, reeve of iC^iqiiitlara;
secretary-treasurer, J. W. Cunning-*1
hum; Mr. C. H. Stuart-Wade, and
Mr. Robb Sutherland, of New Westminster; and Mr. R. C. Abbott, market commissioner. President Kirkland Introduced them and several
addresses were given in explanation
of the aims and practical work of
the league.
At the conclusion of tbe addresses
Dr. A. A. King moved that the Delta
Board of Trade join the Fraser Valley Development League, which motion was declared carried by the
chairman.
It was afterwards pointed out by
the secretary that there was a motion on the minutes of the previous
month's meeting already adopted,
that the board could not see Its way
clear to joining the association.
This leaves the matter as it originally was. It is now proposed to take
up the matter again at the next regular meeting when a motion to rescind the minute against joining will
be discussed and then acted upon
definitely.
It is to be regretted that there
was not a larger attendance of farmers at this meeting to hear the
very interesting addresses given. In
order to remedy this and if possible
further the development of a local
potato marketing association among
the farmers, the secretary of the
board of trade, Mr. S. W. Fisher,
was directed to make arrangements
and call a general meeting to be

The Cost of Living
ADVERTISING turns over stocks
rapidly, and therefore multiplies
profits. This means that prices in
a shop which advertises can be short
rather than long.
Of this you may be sure: Prices in a shop
which advertises are not MORE than in a
shop which does not advertise. The chances
are that they are oftentimes lower.
This, also, is generally true: You will find
better goods, better values and better service
in those .hops which turn over their stocks
rapidly. This means, as a general thing,
shops   which   advertise.
A NOTE TO MERCHANTS.
Advertising costs you nothing���it is paid for
by  the profits on increased Miles.
Advertising is easy���it is simply saying in
writing what you say to the customers in your
shop.
Turn over stocks quickly, if you would make
more money.

Commissioner    Abbott    Inaugurates
Practice Conceived by Fraser Valley Development  League.
(From the  British  Columbian)
Markets Commissioner Abbott
following the instruction given him
by the Fraser Valley Development
League has begun the issue of a
weekly market report which is forwarded to every part of the Fraser
Valley. The reports are filed with
each board of trade, municipal council and Farmers' institute, and are
posted at each post office, so as to
give all the farmers of the Valley
reliable information concerning markets for produce in this city and in
Vancouver. The report just issued
follows:
Vancouver.
Few raspberries have been coming into this market since July 2,
Saturday, July 11, being the largest
amount received up to this date,
when some 350 crates were sold
readily at $1.75 per 2-5 crate for
good stock, while Puyallup berries
in  ?>-5 crates sold for $2.25.
Some growers will receive a much
lower figure than $1.75 for Saturday's berries owing to the fact that
they shipped in on the Agassiz local,
which landed them on the "row"
about 11:45 o'clock, too late for the
trade. Growers are cautioned
against this habit as invariably the
jobber will sacrifice rather than
carry them over and more especially on a Saturday, when the row-
closes at noon.

TENDERS ARE INVITED.
Call Is Issued  for Bids on  Second
I'nit of Sandheads Training
WaU.
(From  the British Columbian)
Tenders for the construction of
the second unit of the Steveston
jetty at the mouth of the Fraser
river must be in the hands of the
department officials at Ottawa by-
August 11, according to a call for
tenders received from Ottawa today.
Along with the official call for tenders Mr. C. C. Worsfold this morning received the plans and specifications for this section of the jetty.
The usual provisions for the protection of the government are included
in the call for tenders, contractors
having to put up a marked cheque
for ten per cent, of the amount of
i their tender.
The section of the jetty provided
for in the contract which it is expected will be let very shortly after
the receipt of the tenders, will be
7300 feet long, and of brush and
rock construction, 190 feet wide at
the base, and varying in height from
4 1-2 feet to 18 feet. lt joins the
completed section of the jetty and
extends westward across the sandheads in a gentle curve and is calculated to con line the water to the
new channel and prevent it from
spreading over the sandheads. The
wind and tides all s.et from the soutli
nere and the tendency will be to
pile the water up against this huge
training wall and keep the channel
scoured out.
One year will be allowed for the
completion of this section of the

Following along the lines of a
recommendation made last month by
Col. .1. L>. Taylor, M.P., instructions
are now being sent out by the Dominion postal authorities for the establishment of a slimmer post office
at Crescent Beach, with Mrs. e. Williams as postmistress.
The office Is being opened for the
accommodation of a very large number of summer residents who wou Ml
be Inconvenienced by having to go
three quarters of a mile back to
reach the present post office. This
latter office, Crescent, will therefore
remain where it Is at present.
As to the new name "Crescent

a post office of thnt name in Nova

i     (From  the  British  Columbian)
With but 120 tickets to be dispos-
; ed of by the committee there was a
mob of several hundred on the new
; city dock at the foot of Eighth St.
I this morning besieging the committee and ship's officers for tickets,
but the Citizens' Excursion committee were held down to their contract
lor but 800 passengers for the Princess Sophia, and the steamer surged
away from the dock and swept down
stream shortly after 7 o'clock leaving scores of would-be passengers
behind. The Princess Sophia is
bound for Bellingham, Wash., on the
annual excursion given by the committee. Mayor Gray returned from
Victoria last night and was a member of the party aboard, while officers and members of the board of
trade and progressive association
were there in force.
Industrial Commissioner Darling
is with the crowd and today in Bellingham will see several manufacturers who have cast their eyes
towards the Fraser river as a suitable site for Canadian branches,
while Market Commissioner R. C.
Abbott is in conference with Mr.
Floyd Kaylor, manager of the Whatcom County Fruitgrowers' Association, securing tips for the Fraser
Valley producers on handling fruit
from the grower direct to the retailer.
The excursionists are, many of
them, combining business with pleasure, but on the whole It is purely a
pleasure trip. The schedule for the
vessel If followed, will place the passengers ashore at Bellingham about
noon, and the return trip will be
commenced at 5 o'clock. Tbe return will be made by tiie Southern
passage around Eliza Island, the Pea
Pod Rocks, where the U. S. cruiser
Boston was wrecked, and south of
Lumini Island, and through one of
the most beautiful lanes among the
San Juan Islands. Going the ship
will pass within a stone's throw of
Gooseberry Point at the portage in
Hales Pass, where more than a hundred years ago, according to tradition both among the Nooksack and
Lumini Indians and among the
Northern tribes, the final battle of
a generation-long war was fought
between King Ueorge Indians and
the Lumruis. The battle lasted for
several days and the King George
Indians were finally driven off, but.
it left the Lummis so decimated that ���
they were but a handful when the
white men first began to visit Bellingham bay. During this war several battles occurred on both sides of
the carry' across Point Roberts, and
where Boundary Bay townsite is now
located.
The Bellingham Chamber of Commerce and other civic bodies made
every preparation for the reception
and entertainment of the excursionists, and they were met by Mayor
DeMattos, President BroWii, of the
Chamber of Commerce, several aldermen, aud a big committee with
autos for the official visitors and
the committee, while rubberneck
cars were on hand for sightseers.
The White City at Lake Whatcom
was thrown open to the trippers,
while other points of interest were
shown the visitors by guides supplied by the Bellingham boosters.

Commissioner    Investigating Southampton  Railway Says Evidence
Clearly Shows This.
'FT.EDERICTON,   N.B.,  July   14.  -
The Inquiry being conducted by Commissioner R. A. Pringle, K.C, ot Ottawa, Into the Southampton Railway
Company  to    determine    why     the
|double Dominion subsidy of $6400 a
mile   was  paid,  was    brought     to a
close  here late yesterday afternoon,
i Commissioner    Pringle,   in   a   short
iaddress, stated  that    the    evidence
.proved   beyond   a   doubt     that     the
I road   was   not   entitled   to   the   subsidy.
Commissioner Pringle put the cost
of the road at $17,Tiki a mile. This
is about $.700 short of the $21,400
required In order to receive thc
double subsidy. The independent ex-
I perls employed to estimate the cost
���of the road place it at $159,000.

WAGE FIGHT
FOR CANNERY
Several  Parties  Claim  Possession of
Scottish-Canadian Company's
Plant at Steveston,
VANCOUVER, July 9.���A legal
fight over the possession of the
premises of the Scottish-Canadian
Canning Co., at Steveston, is being
waged in Supreme Court Chambers
Bel re Mr. Justice Clement. Two
motions are being heard. In one.
Mr. Alfred Henry Sherman, the late
managing director of the company,
is asking that the company be added as defendants with Messrs. But-
tar _;* Chiene In a suit he is bringing, and in the other. Mr. ('. S, Windsor, the present manager, is asking
for an order declaring that he is entitled to possession at once.
At the present time. Mr. It. B.
Dickie, alleged to be a personal
friend and nominee of .Mr. Sherman,
is in possession of the premises under a lease from Sherman, The fact
that the salmon are starting to run
in the Fraser and that the canning
season will open in a few days,
makes the fight for possession an urgent one.
The reading of the minutes of the
directors and shareholders' meetings
held in London disclosed the fact
that there is a serious conflict of
forces over the control of the company, It is alleged that during the
two years of Mr. Sherman's management losses were made by the company despite the fact that 1912 and
1913 were very good years for the
salmon canners.
Mr. Sherman, who has a claim of
$24,071 against the company as a
balance due him, consented to submit his claim to the arbitration of
Messrs. Huttar & Chiene, accountt
ants. After an accounting of the
books, .Messrs. Buttar & Chiene reported that the company owed Mr.
Sherman nothing, but that Mr. Sherman owed the company $691. This
led to Mr. Sherman alleging misconduct against Messrs. Buttar &
Chiene, and in this action he was
allowed to add the cannery company as a co-defendant.
In the second motion, in which Mr.
C. S. Windsor is the plaintiff, it was
alleged by Mr. S. S. Taylor, K. C,
eounsel for Windsor and the company, that Sherman had been removed from his duties and Mr.
Windsor sent out  to  relieve him.
"On June 6, several days after
Mr. Windsor arrived," said Mr. Taylor, "Sherman gave a lease of all
the premises and assets of the company to Mr. R. B. Dickie. Thi.". Jlr.
Dickie resides with Mr. Sherman, I
am told, and is obviously a stool pig-
eon. Nevertheless, they are in possession and refuse to give up possession to Mr. Windsor, and with the
salmon season starting it is imperative that we get possession at
once."
Mr. C. W. Craig for Sherman is
arguing that Sherman had authority
under a power of attorney to lease
the premises. This is denied by Mr.
S. S. Taylor, who argues further
that In any event the power of attorney carried no authority on June
8 when the alleged lease to Dickie
was entered into.

Mr. R. C. Abbott, market commissioner of the Fraser Valley Development League, presented to the Executive which met in the Board of
Trade rooms here yesterday afternoon, a comprehensive report on the
market conditions In the cities of
Vancouver and New Westminster.
These had been the subject of study
by the Market Commissioner since
assuming office on July 1 and his observations had led him to come to
an optimistic conclusion as to the
progress of fruit and vegetable farming in the valley. With the local
markets well looked after, a better
standard of packing for local consumption obtained and regular supplies guaranteed, he looked for a
large increase in the production of
food stuffs and more profitable returns to the farmers. As for the
j prairie markets he looked for a
larger control of this field by valley
fi nit and vegetable growers, and
predicted that within a few years,
there would be daily shipments from
the valley of mixed cars of fruits and
vegetables.
The meeting was also addressed at
length or market conditions by Mr.
K. O. L. Clark, inspector for* the
Fruit Marks department, aud by Mr.
lv Hutcherson who has been conducting a survey of the valley as to
tin- amount of produce that would
be marketed this summer and tall.
The executive registered by a
unanimous resolution its appreciation of the thorough manner Mr.
Abbott had undertaken hls market
investigations, of the practical sug-
gesttons he had been able to give to
individual producers and of his successful efforts to obtain for the pro-
ducers better returns for their consignments.
On motion he was authorized to
report as early as possible on a
plan to i ;sue weekly market reports
to the farmers of the valley.
rhe question of organizing market
selling agencies both in New West-
i ter uml Vancouver was brought.
up by Mr. Hutcherson and thoroughly ti -���" t\ Some of tn members
' ,.��� of the opinion that t.io Market
Commissioner should Immediately
undertake the work of organizing
these Belling agencies so that the
producer with a box of berries or
small Quantities of butter could ship
liis produce to au agent on the city
markets, who would be responsible
ii r ,i quick sale and proper returns.
In the view of other members of the
executive, the Market Commissioner
could he Of more value at present hi
pursuing hls Investigations, encouraging the producers to raise the
tid-ard of their offerings and indL-
cate to them the openings for the
sale of their produce, and prevent-
Ims flooding of the markets. Mr.
Abbott stated lhat It. was his aim to
work towards a selling agency. It
was finally resolved that a committee .(insisting of Messrs. Hutcherson.
Abbott aud Wade take up the question and report.
it wis .suggested that ea^h member of the executive In their respeo-
tive districts take up the question of
organizing local associations for tin-
promotion of better marketing with
the producers in their respective
districts and rep rt,
President Marmont,    Mr.    Abbott
and the secretary will arrange for a
meeting of the fruit growers of the ;
valley to be addressed    by    Deputy !
Minister Scott.
IS GKEAT SUCCESS.
District Orangemen   to   Number of
Two Thousand Converged on
Chilliwack, Saturday.
(From The British Columbian.)
Under superb weather conditions
and with al! details in connection
with the affair carried out without
the slightest hitch, one of the most
successful twelfth of Jply celebrations ever held from this district
came to a happy termination on Saturday night last after about 2,000
Orangemen and their friends had
spent an enjoyable day in an excursion to Chilliwack.
Of the number present, about one
thousand were from No. 1 district,
which includes Chilliwack, Mission,
Agassiz, Rosedale, Hammond and
other nearby points. The balance
came from No. 2 district, New West-
minster sending a contingent of ten
carloads. Other outlying sections
well represented were: Coquitlam,
Port Coquitlam, Strawberry Hill,
Aldergrove, Murrayville, White
Rock, Hazelmere, Burnaby, Ladner,
Surrey Centre, Port Moody and Milner. The Hammond contingent
chartered the steamer Skeena for
the trip, most of the' Orangemen being accompanied by their wives and
families.
On the arrival of Lodges 1150 aud
15.3 with W..M. W. F. Hansford In
charge, Mayor Barber welcomed the
Orangemen to Chilliwack and invited
them to enjoy themselves in the city
parks, placed at their disposal fo'r
the day. After a number of speeches
including one from W. H. Madill, of
Burnaby, a lengthy sports programme was carried out, including
a keenly contested baseball game between teams representing Chilliwack and the B. C. O. R. The excursionists departed for home about
8 o'clock, travelling on three special
trains. Before proceeding to the
ball for dismissal the Orange band
paraded Columbia street.
