The Islanders Have Applied for Re-
Admission in  Vancouver and
District loot ball League.
Westham Island soccer team have
signified their Intention of Competing In the Vancouver and district
league this season. Last year the
Westham Island Football Club dropped out after playing a few games,
but they have now applied to the
delegates at a recent special
meeting of the executive of the
league for re-admlsslon, stating that
they were prepared to place a team
In the  field  this season.
The Westham Island club have
also expressed their willingness to
put up a bond of a reasonable amount
nf money with the league as a sign
that they would  fulfil their engage-
attendance of 20 scholars, and when
the fine new building Is completed,
the enrolment of pupils will undoubtedly be largely increased.- Mr,
J. V. McLeod, B.A., the new principal, was on hand to commence his
new duties.
Westham Island school reopened
its doors on Monday with an attendance of about 20 of the rising cen-
conin'^'ion of the whole w"iarf.
Much credit is due to the members of the Delta Board of Trade
and others who have devoted their
time and unremitting efforts In securing this Important addition to the
Improvements of Ladner.
The whole work is being done In
a most satisfactory way under the
supervision   of   Mr.   Loverlng,   and

Bad Handling of Eggs Causes Loss
of Enormous Sum Annually

(From The British Columbian.)
Improper handling of eggs is responsible for an annual loss of the
huge sum of $45,000, according to
bond suggested, and it is understooa
that their admission to the league
Is practically decided upon.
The Islanders always play a good
fime of soccer and it is to be hoped
that they will enhance their reputation as goon sports in future games

Slump in Prices Anticipated by Ladner   and   Westham   Island
Canneries.
In the vicinity of Ladner and Westham Island, salmon are running very
poorly, sockeyes beinj; comparatively
scarce and cohoes not appearing ln
any considerable numbers this week.
At present the canneries here are
still paying 40 cents for sockeyes
and 25 cents for cohoes, but the demand for the fish is declining and
the canneries in this district are
awaiting the decision of the B.C.
Packers' Association as to future
prices.
It was stated on Thursday at the
Brunswick Cannery that owing to
the dumping of great quantities of
flsh from southeastern Alaska Into
Canada, that a bis slump in prices
here as well as at Steveston will take
place at an early date.

Description of Up-to-date Apparatus
in Use  at Colony Farm
Dairy.
MOUNT COQUITLAM, B.C., Aug
23.���In the cattle department of the
Colony Farm, all the buildings are
of the most scientific and sanitary
kind, while the milking cows are
kept in the finest condition. All the
cattle are pure bred and of high
pedigree, the bulls being champion
prize winners at various shows
throughout the  Dominion.
The milk supply has been well
kept up and  the record  for butter
the top it runs into a cooling trough,
the milk passing through small
holes, which allows the milk to run
over cylinders which are filled with
cold water of about 55 degrees
fahrenheit. Passing Into the bottom trough it is conveyed away in
cans, which have been thoroughly
washed and sterilized.
Sterilizing Process.
In the sterilizing department, the
cans and bottles are first washed
by warm water and then rinsed with
cold water. They are then conveyed
by truck into the sterilizing chamber, where there are steam pipes
running .across the floor, the steam
coming through apertures in the piping on which the cans and bottles
are placed mouth downwards, thus
allowing the steam to thoroughly
sterilize them.
Besides the pasteurizing and sterilizing machinery, there is a churner,
a cream rlpener and a De Laval
cream  separator.
There are two refrigerating rooms
equipped   with    ammoniated   water

production has been exceptionally
good during the past month. Several cows made over 25 lbs. of butter
in the milk produced in seven days,
accurate milk testing being recorded
from  day  to  day.
The dairy plant Is now running in
good shape for the pasteurizing and
sterilizing  processes.    As this dairy I
was recently placed in  grade A ln
the government's inspection for the i
most   sanitary   production   of  milk, j
it may  be  worth  while  to describe
the arrangements.
.Method  of  Pasteurizing.
In the first place the milk is
brought direct by carrier from the
cow barn, In 10 gallon cans, to the
pasteurizing room. Here it Is put
into the feeding can of the pasteurizing machine, which is driven by
electric power and heated by steam
at a temperature of from 150 to
170 degrees fahrenheit. The milk
is then conveyed into a cooling cylinder machine and  from the  tank at
pipes,   where  the  milk,  cream  and
butter are stored.
Milk Testing.
In the matter of testing for butter
fat in the milk, daily records are
accurately kept, the supply of each
can being separately entered. The
standard percentage of butter fat in
good milk being three per cent., it
is noteworthy that it runs here to
an average of four per cent. Of
course, the cows vary in the quality
of their milk production; the butter
fat may pan out Slightly below four
per cent., or it may run as high
as five per cent,  and six per cent.
To those farmers or dairymen
who have not already satisfactory
methods of milk production, a visit
to the Colony Farm would prove an
instructive object lesson in a scientific and  sanitary system.
Mr. Holmes is the superintendent
of the cattle department of the Colony Farm, and Mr. Manhard haB
charge of the dairy.
SLUMP IS PREDICTED.
B. C. Packers Will Meet Shortly to
Name Opening Prices on the
Salmon Pack.
(From The British Columbian.)
Opening prices on the 1912 salmon pack of the Krusi-r river will
probably be decided at a meeting of
the B. C. Packers Association sometime in the very near future according to the prediction made hy local
canners. Local cannorymen expect
that the quotations offered will be
lower than those of last year, as
jobbers and retailers are not bidding
ns high this year ns last.
There is ;t decided slump In the
market this yeardue to the linusiiiilly
large puck put up by the canneries
In South-eastern Alaska, which, according to the prices announced In
Seattle nnd Puget Sound a few
weeks n^o, Is offered al amazingly
low price*1, The pack of the northern salmon canneries was 'arte r
than anticipated with the result that
lower figures must ho quoted ly
Canadian puckers In order that the
low rate put on hy the Sound canner. may not force them out of the
competition, leaving their season's
catch a burden on their hands.
Lower American prices will have a
large Influence on the prices to be determined nt the meeting pf the It. ('.
Packers'      Association. American
companies mny successfully compete
with Canadian packers in the markets of England and Australia. Tho
same duty Is put upon foodstuffs.
which include salmon, imported
from Canada to Australasia, as that
imposed upon goods imported from
the United States, while there Is no
duty levied by England on imported
Salmon from' America. This fact
tends to restrict the markets of the
Eraser river canners and those of
���he northern coaat of British Columbia to the Dominion alone where the
tariff shuts out American competition.
Newly operated canneries are
making bitter protests In the United
States and Alaska because of ,the
fact that lower prices were quoted
this season on practically all fish
due to the large pack of pinks. Many
of these smaller concerns, it ls said,
will be practically forced out of busl-1
ness because they cannot get enough
money for their pack to insure the
payment of running expenses. This
is attributed to the trouble experienced all year by many of the smaller
canneries with fishermen who demanded higher prices for raw fish
than in almost any year past, whereas the larger plants relied on their
traps, and consequently were not affected by the high price asjjed by
fishermen.
A well known local canner declares
that the big buyers were making an
attempt to "bear" the market, there
by forcing a lower price for the pack.
Canners this year both on the Sound
and on the Eraser, put up a larger
pat k than had been anticipated, the
total number of cases of sockeyes
In half pound flats that were canned
in British Columbia alone being estimated at .".00,000 cases while the
pack of sockeyes In half pound fiats
on the Fraser river is s.lid to be
somewhere in the neighborhood of
85,000 cases. The canners estimate
lhat some 17,000 cases of spring salmon were canned nnd about 8000
cases of white salmon.
Another local canner declares that
there Is no demand for the fall salmon, such us dog salmon, or chunis,
or for tin? white spring salmon, although the runs are excellent. Great
numbers are thrown back Into the
water dully for tho reason that they
would he a drug on the market if
canned.
Canners are at present offered
only $!i for enses of half pound flats
of sock eyes, while a price of $7.50
is offered for halt pound medium
reds. Canners declare that they
will hold out for a better price on
the sockeyes. Springs at this stage
of the buying season bring only $9,
and a general reduction in the price
on all fish is looked for this season.
CHINESE BERSERK.
NANAIMO, B.C., A.ug. 16.���Defying the police to capture him, Chung
Lee. a Chinese merchant, armed himself with axe and revolver last night
in an endeavor to stand off the offi
cere. He was shot and probably
fatally injured by Provincial Constable Geo. Hannay. Lee had caused
more or less of a riot In Chinatown,
following a lengthy debauch.
Mr. P. Clark left Ladner on Thursday on a trip to Fort George. He
will join Mr. J. R. Slgmore's party
at Vancouver. While at Fort
George he will select land in this
district for other farmers and friends
in the Delta.
VICTORIA,    Aug. 24.���With    the
date of the opening of Victoria's an-
' nual  exhibition  now  fast approaching, officials of the British Colum-
i bia    Agricultural    Association    are
! busily engaged in preparation. September 24 to 28, inclusive, "are the
five days selected for the 1912 fair,
j and, if the present auguries can be
[ accepted as sure indications of the
I character of the event, it should be
a pronounced success from all vlew-
] points.    While attending the    Van-
! couver exhibition Mr. George Sangs-
ter, the local secretary, found those
��� taking part most enthusiastic in
discussing the island affair. To a
man they promised to participate In
the  competitions  ljere  and   for  this
! reason it is confidently expected that
the best features of the big mainland exhibition will be found at the
Victoria fair as well as much more
which the Terminal City could not
get because of the early date at
which its event was set.
Of the entertainment as well as
instructive departments that which
is likely to prove of the highest class
and the most attractive to the general public is the horse show sessions, which will take place on every
one of the five evenings during the
show's progress. The auditorium
was never in better shape, having
been improved and thoroughly renovated for the spring show. The
latter has shown the horsemen of
the northwest what Victoria can do
in that line. All who competed here
then went away thoroughly satisfied,
that the majority gave their promise that they would be back for the
fall contests. Therefore Secretary
Sangster is confident that next
month's display of horses will be the
jUnest that lovers of the animal havfe
fcen privileged to see in this district.
There is not a prominent stable from
Portland in the south, Winnipeg dn
the east, and Vancouver in the north,
that will be without representation.
It will be a mammoth assembly of
the best horses in this part oi 'I
continent. Already a number of
local enthusiasts have commenced
buying in order that they may continue to hold their own against outside competition which has been
growing keener every season. Thus
spirited struggles for the ribbons are
anticipated.
All the buildings are going to be
fully occupied, in fact space already
is at a premium. A new feature, in
this connection, is the dog show,
which is being managed by the Victoria Kennel Club. This is somewhat
of a departure for the British Columbia Agricultural Association, and
was agreed to at the earnest solicitation of the many local fanciers.
The agricultural, horticultural and
stock displays promise to be exceptionally good.
Judges have been appointed up to
date as follows:
>i Horse show���Mr. R. P. Stericker,
of Aurora, 111.
Live stock���Mr. D. C. Flatt, or
Hamilton, Ont.
!     Dairy cattle and swine���Mr. Jas.
[Yule, for years the manager of the
I late Hon. Thos. Greenway's estate In
[Manitoba.
��� Horses, beef cattle and sheep���
I Prof. McDonald, B. C. live stock
j commissioner.
Fruit���Prof*.  C. S. Lewis, of Cor-
I vallls, Ore., and Mr. P. E. French, assistant horticulturist.
Poultry���Mr. II. E. Upton, assistant poultry instructor,
Dairy produce���Mr. H. Rive, dairy
instructor, and Mr. V. Bojeson, Victoria.
Flowers���Mr. G. B. Bjorkman,
manager of the Hollywood Gardens,
.Seattle. Mr. Bjorkman has not definitely accepted the appointment as
! yet, but ia-.confidently expected to
j agree to act.
i     Reverting to the horse show, it is
I pointed   out   by   Secretary   Sangster
| that Mr. Stericker is one of the American  authorities.    The   association
j considers  itself  fortunate  in  having
i been  able to  secure hla services,  aa
he  has  had  years of experience     ln
jjuglng  some  of the  most  important
competition, of the kind In the country.    That he will give complete sat-
ll l act Ion there is no doubt.    Mr. W.
jJ.   Clements,     of   Madison     Square,
1 New  York,  one of tho best    postod
j borao show men of the United States
has lieen appointed ring master.    He
, will be In Victoria some days before
, the opening  in  order  to  personally
j supervise    the    arrangements.     His
i presence  will  ensure the  able  management of the competitions so that
those who take part us well as tho
general  public may confidently look
forward   to  having  their     interests
given expert attention.
For the entertainment of the
crowds who will attend in the evening, in addition to the exhibits and
other attractions the officials have
under way a project for the provision of high class musical programmes In the main building. It
is proposed bringing the Anglo-
Welsh choir of Vancouver here for
one concert. As this Is one of British Columbia's finest musical or-
Kanizations It is a foregone conclusion that its visit will be weleoued
by Victorians Interested in music.
The Arion Club, of Victoria, and
other local bodies of the kind, as
well as the best of amateur vocalists
of this city also will be engaged if
tho present plans are carried
through. A more definite announcement regarding this attraction will
be made at a later date.
CORNER IN  BARLEY.
Portland Exporter Acquires Control
of Ninety Per Cent of Brewing Barley.
PORTLAND, Ore., Aug. 29.���One
of the largest grain deals ever put
through in the Pacific Northwest
came to light yesterday. By the purchase qf the Dayton-Parley pool, Mr.
M. H. Houser, a Portland exporter,
has practically secured a corner on
all the brewing barley produced in
this region, grain men admit.
Houser Is credited with making a
profit of $225,000 by a similar coiner last year.    Houser's ba-'.ey \v��b
sold in the east last year.   This year
he will export it, he announos.
The 1912 barley pool at Duy ton,
Wash., contained about 120 000
sacks of brewing grade hoi'lov.
Houser paid the farmers $1.?5 par
100 pounds, the highest prle.-*- P-iJ
fo* export barley for a nu u or of
y-ars. After the pool barley lit 1
Leen bought tiie Houser agents unrein sed all the individual hollinps
aggregating over 125,000 bags, thus
giving Houser control of 90 per cent
of the Eastern Washington crop of
brewing barley.
As the barley crop abroad has
been seriously affected by unfavorable weather, European buyers will-
be forced to buy heavier than usual
in the Northwest, it is expected.
