LADNER, B. 0. THURSDAY, JUNE 18, 1914.
11.00 A YEAR
THE "1895" DYKE
Dyking Committee of Council Making Arrangements���Track Will
Be Laid Along Dyke.
Matters having progressed satisfactorily to date, it is considered
probable that repair work will commence on the so-called "1895" dyke,
which was seriously attacked by the-
tides last winter and now requires
rehabilitating for a distance of a
mile and i, half. The dyking committee of the council is making arrangements. The proposal at present is to instal a track from the An-
glo-Ameriean cannery along the dyke
to the point of operation, and on
this to transport heavy rocks for
Rails for the track, it is expected,
will be secured at an early date. As
the distance to be repaired is con-
i-nlerable, the work will probably occupy quite a number of weeks. An
effort, consequently, will be made
to get it under way as soon as possible.
Council (.ives Instruction to Municipal Clerk���'Fishermen's Petition Is Kndorsed.   .
Delta Council last Saturday endorsed the Fraser River Fishermen's
Protective Association's petition, the
aim of which is to prevent further
aggrandizement by Japanese fishermen; passed for payment some thirty-five miscellaneous accounts; instructed the municipal clerk to prepare a tax sale bylaw, and dealt with
many communications, most of
which  were of minor import.
Permission was granted to H. C.
Vigor to open up streets for the purpose of installing water pipe. A letter from the Dominion Equipment
anfl Supply Company, was laid ovgj
for further consideration. The matter of contract to R. C. Coleman
was left in hands of Councillors
Huff and Brown.
An adjourned meeting of the
council will be held on Saturday,
June 27, at 2 p. m.
Scanlon Failed to Wait for Motor
Bus When Latter Was
The last trip of the bus on Sunday
evening was delayed for about fifteen minutes on account of the opening of the drawbridge over the North
Arm of the Fraser river. This delay
caused the bus to be about five minutes late at the landing and In time
to see the Scanlon about two lengths
from the dock. Bystanders said the
captain  was  Informed   that  the bus
as in sight, but paid no attention.
About thirty passengers were left
li.-hind. and suggestions came 'rom
nil sides as how to get across the
.���*.*er. Telephone service was cut off
'rom Woodward's to Ladner owing to
the Steveston exchange being closed
on Sunday.
Three of the party volunteerer to
row to I.adner and send the launch
Tl. B. for the rest. While they were
gone, by frantic endeavors a passenger launch was signaled and turned
into the landing, and agreed to take
all the crowd to Ladner.
The three In the rowboat reached
I.adner safely about half an hour
later with blistered hands but none
the worse for tbe trip.
Pageant  Holds Up Car Traffic and
Ferry Makes Extra
Owing to the large crowds in Vancouver on Friday the street car service was taxed to a good extent, cars
on the Fraser avenue line not being
an exception. Many Ladnerites
missed the 'bus, and, therefore, the
After telephoning from the end of
the car line the bus made an extra
trip, and the ferry captain condescended to make an extra trip for a
fee of $10. Some refused to pay,
leaving the brunt of the expense for
a few to bear, but still enjoying the
comfort of being able to get home.
Considerable Bequests  Are Made to
Several Montreal Hospitals and
Other  Institutions.

This Is Claimed to Be Very Superior
Honey���Production This Season
('renter Than Last.
White clover honey ls usually
considered honey par excellence, but
epicures there are who declare that
wild rose honey has the nectar of
white clover beaten in a hundred
different ways. Honey taken from
local hives at present is tinged with
wild rose, which besides giving a
somewhat darker tint, adds a distinctive aroma. Along the dykes
and scattered here and there over
the district are patches of wild
roses aggregating many acres. Still
in the blossoming period, tbey share
with the clovers the attention of the
Local beekeepers are in an optimistic frame of mind. The season
is days ahead of last year, and a
good year is expected.
The honey flow has progressed to
such an extent that some of the beekeepers have commenced extracting.
James Reagh, who has an efficient
apiary, has some three hundred
pounds in his hives, ready to he taken out.
If weather conditions could be
made to order. Delta beekeepers, it
is certain, would demand warm
nights. As is generally known, cool
nights predominate in this district
throughout the summer season, and
the bees remain huddled up in the
hives. If the nights were other-
"-'i honey production would
come much nearer the estimated possible output.
Within the next ten days. Mr. F.
**'���*-'-- Todd, the provincial bee inspector, is expected to visit Delta.

Which Is Now 92.25 Crate.

Xew    Potatoes    and    Strawberries
Were Prominent���Quotations
of Other Food Products.
New potatoes grown in the Delta
were the feature of the Fraser valley market, held Friday morning,
June 12. They sold very rapidly at
5 cents the pound. By the sack they
could be had for 4 cents per pound,
or for $4 the sack. A small contingent from Lulu Island sold at 8 cents
the pound. New potatoes have
been gelling at $120 a ton in Vancouver.
Eggs took a sudden jump in price
and sold for 5 cents the dozen more
than the former week, or that of 35
cents the dozen retail or 30 cents the
dozen wholesale. Butter went back
to the old price, that of 35 cents to
40 cents the pound retail and 30 to
*R5  cents the pound  wholesale.
Strawberries grown in the Delta
were aiso a feature, selling very
rabidly at two boxes for 25 cents.
A few boxes were sold at 10 cents
the box. Gooseberries were also
good sellers, going rapidly al the
same price of strawberries.
Tomatoes made their first appearance and sold at the good price of
25 cents the pound. Beets and carrots also made their initial appearance and went good nt 5 cents the
huffch, Cabbages were
for  15 cents.    Radishes
This has .been an exceptionally dry
spring in Delta, and indications at
present are for less than average
yields of all the staple commodities.
The potato fields present a splendid spectacle. The dry weather undoubtedly will tend to better the
quality but not the yield. The
stands of hay, as they appear to one I
passing along the roads, are notice- \
ably not so heavy as last year. The
haying season locally does not officially open for some days yet, and
weather conditions will still exercise an influence, but most farmers j
concede that the hay. crop will be
somewhat short.
Not in years, if ever, have the
strawberry patches in Delta yielded
so prollfically as they are yielding
this season. The berries are being
marketed locally advantageously,
$2.25 a crate being secured, but
growers who have consigned to Vancouver have, in some instances, secured poor satisfaction. A drop in
price seems certain when the local
vines are in full bearing. No one in
Delta, of course, specializes in-straw-
berries as do ranchers at Mission,
Victoria and some other points.
Local peas are now on the market
at 10 cents a pound. They are
grown by Chinamen. Some nice local cherries are to be seen.
New potatoes are leaving Delta in
considerable quantities. Two tons
went to Vancouver by auto truck on
Wednesday. In marketing new potatoes at this time a day may mean
a big difference, and the speedy delivery, made possible by the terry,
is appreciated.
A Successful Event Held in Mi-Xeely
Hull for the Presbyterian
The first strawberry festival of tho
season was held In McNeely Hall on
Thursday evening, the 11th lnst., under the auspices of the Presbyterian
Church. The night proved all that
could be desired, and a large number attended. A splendid programme
of music was rendered by Miss Hastings, of Vancouver, who was ably
accompanied by her sister, Mrs.
Somerville. One special number.
"Caprice de Concert," was vociferously encored and tbe violinist played
by request "The Mocking Bird,"
which selection she has Idealized.
Another contributor to the programme was Mr. E. L. Berry, who
was in rood voice and sang splendidly "The Veteran" and "The Mid-
shipmtte," and also responded to
well-merited encores.
At   the  conclusion     of    the   programme delicious Delta grown strawberries  were  served,     and     the  ice
cream, which all voted exceptionally
good,   found   quick   sale.     The   bevy

On Monday evening, in one of the
most exciting games of the season,
the Sapperton twelve defeated the
Ladner boys by a score of 6-4.
The defence work of the visiting
team was the feature of the game.
Both homes worked to perfection.
Sapperton had tbe best of the first
quarter, when they notched two
goals to Ladner's none.
In the second period Ladner had
things their own way, and at half
time the score ended 3-2 in Ladner's
favor. Excitement ran high, and
hooting and yelling was beard from
all  corners of  the  field.
In tbe opening of the third quarter Sapperton made a couple of
splendid rushes, scoring two goals
in the first five minutes of play.
Throughout the rest of the quarter
the play was pretty well even.
In tbe fourth period trouble began.     The Sapperton home got the
Plans Are Being Perfected for Ferrf
Connection With Victoria From
Woodward's Landing.
The Victoria Colonist reports that
it is the intention of Sir Donald Mann
to visit the Coast shortly to take up
the question of the C. N. R. ferry
service witb the mainland from Victoria.
This is a question which, states the
Colonist, officials of the Canadian
Northern have for some time been
giving attention to.
The Canadian Northern Pacific's
ferry conectfon with Vancouver Inland will be via Woodward's Landing, a point near Steveston. Here the
company has secured some 250 acres
of land, and the line is graded all the
way to Port Mann. The roadbed on
this section is to be of the highest
standard of construction.
Present plans are that it will be arranged to carry Pullman cars on the
train ferry. Leaving Victoria at 9
p. m., the run to Patricia Bay should
be made in  forty minutes;   the trip
the field and put one past the Ladner goal tender. Ladner scored a
minute later. An argument started
which ended in a row, and free for
all fight between the teams. Spectators rushed on the field, interfering
before anyone was hurt.
Play was resumed and a minute
before the gong sounded Sapperton
scored the final goal.     ,
Blows were thick throughout the
game which was fast enough to satisfy the most enthusiastic supporters. A fair number of penalties
were measured out for roughness.
Hugh Buer, of the local team, twisted his leg during the second quarter, having to retire, Hardy Smith
taking his place. A good crowd was
in attendance.
The Ladner boys were the host! of
the evening and a wholesome as
well as tempting supper was enjoyed at the Ladner Hotel, after which
the Sapperton crowd returned by
launch to their home town.

EBURNE, Point Orey, June 12.���
The Kerrisdale Ratepayers' Association, which has achieved a name for
itself by its many public spirited
actions, has now decided to look Into
economical methods of clearing land.
The ultimate object is to have all
vacant lots ln Point Grey cleared.
For that purpose a compelling bylaw
has even been suggested, but this
is not considered equitable with
clearing costs heavy. Mr. F. C.
Raney, a timber broker, was appointed a committee of one at the

possibilities of ridding land of

the alcohol and the valuable acids.

Puyallup'* Prosperity Thus Accounted for By Writer in Sunset
(From The ChilliwacJc Progress.)
So much has iieer, said or written
about the Puyallup and Sumner cooperative methods of handling fruit
nnd the resultant profits derived from
them that there seems little else to
be said, but Walter V. Woehlke in the
Sunset Magazine for this month sets
forth the condition of those districts
so fully and shows where money can
be made from small farms when properly handled that no apology is necessary for the reproduction of the article in part. It says: "The town of
Puyallup thirty years ago was a mill
town, seated on a greased chute and
beaded downward. The loggers had
followed the receding timber, but
they had left a hecfvy mortgage of
stumps and brush on the cut-over
laud. Clearing proceeded slowly. On
the cleared land hops paid big profits
���for a while. They tried berries. In
the cool days and nights raspberries
and black berries matured slowly, attained a size, flavor and firmness of
texture that made the consumer's
mouth water for more. To supply the
demands for the home market more
berries were planted, so many that
in 1898 a crate of twenty-four boxes
of luscious raspberries, hauled ten
miles from Puyallup to Tacoma,
brought twenty-five or thirty cents,
barely the cost of picking. Some of
the berry growers went through their
berry patches with tbe plow. A.
handful of hopeful ones organized an
association to find better markets for
the surplus.
"In 1902 the Puyallup valley shipped 5000 crates of fresh raspberries,
and still there was a surplus. So the
association incorporated, borrowed a
vacant store, borrowed a two-horse
power boiler and proceeded to can the
surplus. It could not sell the output of the cannery, but W. H. Paul-
hamus, the president of the association and its manager, did not lose
I "Tfulay the erstwhile two-horse
power outfit, the Puyallup and Sumner Fruit Growers' Association, is the
biggest thing in the valley, in Western Washington. It has trebled land
values in the valley during the past
ten years, it has laid the foundation
for hundreds of self-supporting homes
on wee farms; it has put down asphalt pavements, cement sidewalks,
built modern schools and libraries,
maintained trim lawns and flower
gardens In the towns of Puyallup and
Sumner. It has doubled their population, brought order out of chaos, banished doubt, uncertainty, established
confidence, stability. And the association did all this merely by preaching and practicing teamwork, collective action.
"There are 1400 growers In the association. Though they contributed
only a dollar apiece to the capital,
they own collectively two large canneries worth almost a hundred thousand dollars. They shipped last year
153,000 crates of raspberries for
which the grower received the minimum of $1.14 a crate. The association's total shipments of fresh berries reached 429 carloads, and tbe
cannery output added one-third more.
Puyallup berries in carloads went as
far as Chicago, and by express they
travelled to New York. Twelve years
ano an output of 10,000 crates glu
ted the market, smashed prices. The
output was so small that the miniature cannery was able to clean up the
entire stock In a run of ten days. This
year Goo persons will be busy In the
two large canneries from May to No-
will roll across the mountains; In
July an army of 12,000 pickers will
pitch camp b neath the firs and cedars of the volley. And t."-e assoi a-
tion stands ready to contract with all
armers for their entire output of ber-
ries and certain vegetables for five
years at prices high enough to pay the
grower abundant profit."
"The farmer's worries are twofold.
First he must produce, and production depends largely on the proper
distribution Ot heat and moisture.
After he had harvested he must sell
his crop at a profit, Neither task is
overly  easy.     Tlie     Puyallup     valley
produsei Bteadily, abundantly���and it
sells its product, at a profit, thanki
to team  work, collective action."
"The chicken-coop is the Inevitable
companion piece ol the berry patch.
Yuyallup W alive with chickens, but
the egg speculator has cut Puyallup
off his list. The association sells
the eggs as it sells the berries, asking
pay only for the cost of the service.
Hut the association stops selling when
tlie price drops below _o cents fl-doz-
en.    It keeps on buying, though, pays
the producer the prevailing market
price ami puts the eggs Into cold storage      When  the price goes up again
the itored eggs n'-e sold and the producer receives the profits less storage and mark' ting chargi s."
Puyallup ami Sumner have Bo -11
nipoiy of the    berry, vegetable and
chicken business.    Thi   BOll of the valley is not distinctive; 'ts climate Is
not  unique,    Chilliwack has    both,
equally  as  good  If  not   better.  Puyallup Is distinguished    from    other
places on the coast only by the team
work of the residents and the benefits  thereof.     The   same  crops   that
have brought   assured  prosperity  *o
the Puyallup valley can be prown  In
-any similar valley on tho middle Pacific slope,    ln  Puyallup  valley the
growers receive $7n a ton for blnc-k-
berrles of canning grade; in districts
lacking organization (he same grade
of blackberries brines $40 or $60 a
ton.   Team work accounts for the difference.     It  Is team  work  that  has
placed Chilliwack valley on lhe map
as a leading dairy district. The same
can be accomplished in the berry industry if team work and co-operative
met hods are applied. The farmers are
beginning to realize it.    The idea is
taking root.    In the Chilliwack Pro-

The strawberry festival, sale of
work and entertainment, given under the auspices of Christ Church,
Ladies' Guild, on Wednesday, June
3, in the Agricultural Hall, Surrey
Centre, was a pronounced success
and largely attended. The members
of the guild, who wore distinctive
costumes, were kept busy afternoon
and evening, at the various booths,
which were prettily decorated. The
fancy work stall with its large and
splendid assortment of articles, was
especially attractive and interesting.
The entertainment in the evening
was most enjoyable. A very pretty
fairy play, entitled "The Land of
Nod," was given by children in fancy
costume. Much credit was given
Mrs. Chas. N. Bell, under whose direction the play was given, and her
assistants for the capable manner in
which the children were drilled.
The masked costume parade afforded amusement. First prize for
the best dressed lady was awarded
to Miss Vanstone, and first prize for
the best dressed gentleman to Mr
H. B. Croft. Consolation prizes
were given to Misses Fallis and Kirk
wood and Alfred Smith. The proceeds amounted to $104.'
