Mr. A. Sullivan, Provincial School
Inspector for Delta, made his first

district has been only recently In-
, luded In his territory.
"One of the things that impressed
me most forcibly," said Mr. Sullivan,
In an interview, "Is the regularity of
attendance of the pupils. Two of
tlic schools which I visited on a par-
iiilarly stormy day having present
j the total enrolment.
"The interest of the school trust es
in their work is also apparent " said
Mr. Sullivan, "and they are willing to
j pay good salaries for efficient teacb-
|ers, which I consider a most important feature."
Mr. J. S. Gordon, formerly Provincial Superintendent of High Schools
and now  Public  School  Superintendent in 'Vancouver, made a visit to
I Ladner  recently   and  Inspected   the
I.adner   hleh   school,   which   Is  now
[under construction.    Mr. Gordon was
[very well pleased with conditions and
I paid a tribute to the work of Principal  McLeod,  of the  High  School.
JHe was very pleased with the new
Ihigh school  building.

Iof the experimental farms, the Cen-
Jtral Farm at Ottawa supplying only
���the provinces of Ontario and Quebec.
J All   samples   will   be   sent   free,   by

Ifarms,   and   some   account   of   their
(experience with such kinds of grain
lor potatoes) as they have grown, so
���that a promising sort for their con-
Iditlons may be  selected.    Each  ap-
Ipllraticn must be separate and must
lhe signed by the applicant.      Only
lone sample of grain and one of pota-
Itoes can be sent to each farm.    Ap-
lldicntions on   any  kind   of   printed
Iform cannot be accepted.    If two or

Penalty for Murder of Guard
Joynson at Penitentiary.
In a fast and exciting game at
Ladner, last Saturday, the Westham
Island football team were defeated
by the Thistles of Vancouver by the
close score of one goal to nil. The
game was keenly contested, the defence of the Islanders playing a particularly strong game, breaking up
attack after attack. The Thistles
are the league leaders and have not i
suffered a defeat this season, one
game finishing a draw. The Rovers, j
of Mew Westminster, are in second :
asked for, it being the belief that
the development of the island has
reached such a state that such a request, and such a service, is warranted.
When the interview with the railway management is held, as many
members of the municipal council as
can be present will attend and assist
in pressing home the petition. At a
recent meeting of the council, approval was expressed of the privileges
petitioned for by the residents.

Hydro-electric Commission of Ontario is carrying on an active educational campaign, and Ib arousing
keen Interest amongst the farmers of
Western Ontario.
In addition to the work of the
Commission, some individual farmers have shown commendable enterprise ln testing electrically driven
machinery on their own farms. The
experience of farmers in such a matter ls of considerable Interest. Mr.
R. E. Gunn, proprietor of Dunrobln

has furnished the following details
concerning the use of electricity on
his farm:
"Electricity costs me $175.00 per
annum at the farm for 100 lights and

was secured from the local power
company for the reason that they
had power going to waste and wished
to get some return for It. The power
company built the line to the farm
(two miles) and put in and own the
transformers. I wired the farm
buildings and bought all other equipment.

to cost, you can readily see that it ia

which Col. Hughes proposes to erect
a drill hall for the special use of
the students at the university. The
minister is enthusiastic about this
echcme and promises to erect a
building that will cost a quarter of
a million dollars. He has already
given Instructions for the preparation of plans and his architects will
get right at It. The Idea is an excellent one and in It Col. Hughes sees
great results ln teaching the cream
of our young men the use of arms.
"The present site for the university ls 177 acres. Hon. Dr. Young

VICTORIA, B.C., Nov. 14.���Some
amendments to the Dominion Fruit
Marks Act are being advocated by the
Fruit Growers' Association of British Columbia and It Is expected that
the matter will be taken up during
the approaching session of the federal parliament. Several hundred
circulars have been Issued to fruit
growers asking them for expressions
of opinion upon the several points involved. These points are three tn
number. The first Is the standard
of color and size for each variety and
each grade of apple. Much difficulty
has been experienced owing to lack
of agreement on this subject, the
peculiar dificulties which confront
the Industry ln British Columbia not
having been familiar to those by
whom the present act was originally
framed.* A second matter which It is
desired to have parliament legislate
upon is the size of fruit boxes, the
British Columbia fruit growers being
advocates of having the American
apple box adopted as the standard.
Thts box ls better than the Canadian
tn many respects. It holds a little
more fruit and Its shape ts more convenient for handling and for loading
Into cars. In the third place the association wishes that the trade names
"Fancy," "No. 1" and "No. 2" be discarded and tha designations "Extra
Fancy," "Fancy" and "Choice"
which are now ln ni* ln tha United
States bs substituted.

The picture shows a body ot troops of the Ottoman Empire retiring In good order, after one of their numerous defeats. Notice the
aeroplane scouts keeping the commanders of the Turks well posted as
to the nearness of the enemy. The Turks used aeroplanes during the
present war with very poor results. Rather than being of assistance
to them, the aeroplanes were an impediment and frequently gave away
thalr 'position and came crashing down following their being shelled by
tbe Bulgarian artillery.

By Fostering    Settlement    of Stock
Which Won Supremacy of Seas
for Britain.
OTTAWA, Nov. 16.���An Important change in the fishery regulations
of British Columbia has been decided upon and will shortly come
into effect. The purpose of the
change is to build up a white fishing
community on the Pacific Coast. The
arrangement is the fruit of conferences between Hon. J. D. Hazen and
Hon. W. J. Bowser, and the change
in regulations bas relation to Fsher-
ies District No. 2.
At present a given number of boats
are allowed to operate In each Ashing area, and the course now decided
upon Is:
1. Apply the boat rating to water
areas and not to canneries.
2. To issue licenses hereafter for
the fiscal year, beginning with April
3. To reserve until March 15 of
each year as many licenses in each
area as there is reason to anticipate
will be applied for by bona-flde
white fishermen, owning their own
boats and gear, and to assign the remaining boats allowe.**- to existing
canneries pro rata to the present
boat rating.
Licenses to white fisnermen will
allow them to flsh Independent of
any cannery and sell their catches to
whom they choose.
This year the following number
���tit licenses are being reserved for
���"���"lite fishermen: Naas river, Skeena
������ivcr. 170; Rivers Inlet, 175; Bella
C.nola. 14; Kimsquit. Ifi; Namu, 5;
Smith's Inlet, 5; Bufedale, 12. Should
all these licenses not be taken up
the balance will be divided among
the existing canneries.
Discussing the change, Mr. Bowser said: "At the present stage In
the growth of the West, with the
present sentiment so strongly In favor of cementing the bonds which
hold together the Empire, we have
felt lt eminently desirable to foster
settlement on that ereat coast line
of ours of white fishermen of stock
which won for Britain the supremacy
of the seas, and who have placed her
In the forefront of nations. Both
Mr. Hazen and myself realize tbe necessity for such a policy, and have
arrived at a decision only after most
careful  and  thorough  Investigation,
"Practically the sole frontier of
th" Empire on the great Pacific
Ocean Is comprised In 7000 miles
of coast which comprises the western boundary of *:<> Dominion. When
I siy 7000 miles. I am speaking conservatively, for to give you an Idea
of the sinuosities of that coast I may
tell you that following these Indentations our coast line haB been estimated to measure 27,000 miles,
which you will readily see gives us
harbors unparalleled, and all tending to the encouragement of com*1

"To dot this coast line with villages of prosperous white fishing folk
available as raw material for the
Empire's navy, is the ambition of us
Westerners. Mr. Hazen and myself
feel that we have accomplished something in this direction In our present
, "I must really pay tribute to Mr.
Hazen for the admirable manner ln
which his department is coping with
the requirements in British Columbia ln marked distinction to the former regime. A noticeable feature
and one very gratifying to tho public generally, as well as to those actually interested in the salmon industry, Is the manner in which obstructions to the ascent of the salmon have been removed. We were
gratified to have Mr. Found pay us a
visit during the past summer, when
with my deputy aud his chief Inspector he toured coast with profit
to all concerned as well as to himself. We are looking forward to
a visit from Mr. Hazen himself and
from Mr. Johnston, his deputy."
Point Grey Lands.
Mr. Bowser, ln addition, effected
an arrangement with Col. Hughes,
whereby the Militia Department is
understood to have transferred to
the British Columbia government Its
claims, rights and Interests in the
Point Grey reserve in return for a
transfer to it by the British Columbia government of ten acres for a
drill hall. British Columbia government further hands over -four
areas of crown lands without timber,
each being six miles by ten. The
Militia Department will make a selection within the next five years. If
lt ls found necessary to establish a
