It seems that the cannery receiving the fish took long chances with
the United States customs, but utter
many years' immunity from Interference the American officers got busy
and laid a charge of bringing In fish
without payment of duty. This was
acknowledged, and a fine stated to
be $15,000 was paid. The Am?rican
officers In their examination of the
cannery books found the names of
the Canadian fishermen who had been
supplying the fish, and sent these to
Ottawa with the request for the action which has now been taken.
Mr. Taylor has been In correspondence with Ottawa on the matter1
already, and has received a promise
that the case will be carefully looked
Into, in view of the special circumstances. The department is not so
much   concerned   with   the   failure  to

no report was made on the return of

The Delta Board of Trade held an
Important and lengthy meeting on
Monday night, In MnNeely's Hall, Ladner. at whl'-h a deputation from the

via   Fraser   Street.     Besides   a   �� iodly
representation of the Board there wai
a large attendance of bhe general
public present. Mr. R, I". Kittson,
president of the Board, presided, and
.��lr. W. J. l.antilng, secretary, supported  him.
The president, out or oourteey to
the deputation, altered the ti.sual routine and with the consent of the meeting,  heard the deputation  first
Mr. Hodgson, the first speaker, is
president of the South Vancouver
Board of Trade, but he carefully dissociated himself from appearing as a
representative of his Board and spoke
as a private citizen. 'He said there
could be absolutely no question that
direct communication would be for
the benefit of Ladner, South Vancouver and Vancouver City. Although it
mattered little to him personally what
particular route wis adopted he favored the Fraser avenue one. Some
people seemed to think lt necessary
that they should have a bridge Tuning over from Ladner to Woodwards
to get that direct connection. That
was not so. They could have a ferry.
If it were not possible to take freight
cars across that ferry it could he made
large enough to take automobiles and
teams and to build a tram line direct
through to Vancouver City. The reason he favored the Fraser Avenue
route was that at present it was the
only grade across the North Arm.
Councillor Thomas,   South   Vancouver, said it was 10 years since he had
last visited  Ladner and  he felt more
satisfied   than  ever  that  they  wanted
djrect connection with the city of Vancouver.    It was up to them as South
Vurocouver along with the population
of  Ladner   to   get   together  and   pull
together  In  order   to  get   that  direct
connection.    He did not see any impossibility in the matter if they worked together.    Vancouver City wanted
the  products of Delta  farms and  of
course Delta wanted eheLr trade.    He
referred   to   the   meeting    with    Mr.
Glover In Vancouver when the matter
was   very  fully   discussed.       It   had
flagged a l.'ttle since then.   He thought
the B.C.   Electric Company was now
alive  to  the question and  he did not I
think they would have such hard work I
to   Impress  them   with   the   necessity I
of a connecting tram line.    He could
assure  them  they   were   doing  all  ln
their power to forward the movement'
and  he hoped their Board  of    Trade
and Municipal Council would take up
the matter an dhelp them out.    They
had now got the Fraser Avenue grade
cut    down    and    were    < 'nuhiing    the'
track on Pake road, and by the time
that  was done  they  would   have  the
grade    completed   and   run   the   line)
down  to  the Eburne line.    That was
ifive miles of the road completed.     Ile|
understood  the distance  from Ladner
to Vancouver in a direct line was only
11   or  12  m.les.    They could  rest  as-1
sured Ladner would have all the help
they could afford them.
Mr. Brown said Delta had the richest soil in B.C. and Vancouver wanted Its products. Delta had also Boundary Bay and they wanted that as a
playground. They were only 14 or 15
miles from the City of Vancouver In
direct line and eventually when the
river was bridged they would form
the residential part of greater Vancouver. In Chicago they travelled .10
and 40 miles to get to business. With
reference to the Fraser Street Association they had put on a short temporary service across the ferry, but
that was simply an Introduction. They
could not afford to wait for a bridge
across the river. In a conversation
with Mr. Glover, of the B.C. Electrlo
Company, that gentleman stated the
com par y were willing to extend the
line through thp Delta but to erect
a  '���.'.sc   was too  expensive.
The boards of trade of Delta and
other municipalities interested should
write and ask the government to establish a proper car ferry. A great
many people in Vancouver had never
heard of the Delta district Intelligently
and did n->t know where it was or
anything about it. Delta had 40,000
acres and a population of about 1.000.
There was no reason why they should
not have 20.000 of a population if they
go* a residential portion of that city
bere. Ho annealed for a united effort to effect their object. Delta com- |
plained that Vancouver City market
was unsatisfactory. That was so. hut
lt was not the fault of th,. Market
Committee; they had no means of direct communication with the farmers.
If they had farmers could deal direct
with the consumer and do away with
the  profits of the  middleman.
Mr.  Gale asserted  that much of thej
Delta farm produce first went to New i

Vancouver   to   be   sold   at   enhanced
prices.    If they had direct communication  with  Vancouver and  the   pro-j
ducer   brought   into   touch    with   the i
consumer, the ratepayers  of Vanc.vu-J
Ver would look after the City Market |
and cee  they  were not  charged   two
prices.    They   had   been   working   on;
this matter for the last seven or eight,
months and they wanted the aid of
Delta. The representative bodies of
Delta,    Richmond.    South    Vancouver
and Vaneouver city should be united
on this subject.
Mr. (1. Stewart, president of the
Fraser Avenue A*asocla'tion, said h*
hoped soon they would have the construction of Praser Rtreet, from the
South Ami of the Praser River to
Burr ird Inlet. The ll C.T5.R, was
on-lj Just waiting to he asked to "on-
tlnue their line and as soon as they
realize it is really necessary they will
lose   no   tlmi    making   the   extension.
Mr. Martin, secretary of the Association, gave an account of Its formation and Its work. The Vancouver
Board of Trade was deeply Interested
in their present scheme for direct
communication with the Delta. President Er-klne and Mr. Blair, of that
Board, through pressure of work, regretted they could not attend that
meeting, hut wished them success and
to assure the Delta Board of their
heartv co-operation in the scheme.
Mr. Blair had as,ked him. the speaker,
to furnish the Board with a written
statement regarding the meeting that
night. He wound up in the same
strain as the i ther speakers, unity of
effort and co-operation with the other
municipal bodies interested.
The chairman replied to the delegation that the whole ouestlon had
been before the Board, who had
evinced great enthusiasm in the project. A joint committee with other
boards had been appo:nted and had
met in Vancouver under the presidency of Mr. Erskine. At that meeting n permanent committee had been
anpolnted to work on the question of
the bridge. There were two members from South Vancouver and two
from Delta on that committee. Those
from Delta weTP Instructed to go-
ahead and report periodically to their
centres. It was a question they were
not going to lose sight of. and the
words that had fallen from the deputation had not fallen on barren
ground, but would bear fruit.
Mr. Martin begged leave to refer to
another question. The Fraser Street
Association had appointed1 a transportation committee and with the assistance of Richmond had started a Terry
service via Ladner and Woodwards
and a motor bus service thence te
South Vancouver. The question of a
bridge must necessarily take some
time. He had it on good authority
that the Provincial government could
not see its way to give assistance towards the eonwru-ction of a bridge at
Woodward*. They had more hope of
a grant from the Dominion government. Mr. Vasey had gone t'"> a great
deal of expense i'n the motor bus service between the present terminus of
the Fraser Street line nnd Woodwards
Landing and he asked for the cooperation of Ddta in thi*" matter. It
appeared that Mr. Brewster did pot
feel it expedient to continue longer
the ferry service between Ladner and
Woodwards. Mr. Vasey had arranged
for another boat, one that had r"n
between Harrison and Chil'iwack. Tt
was a larger boat than Mr. Hrewster'3,
although that sentleman b'.l given
them excellent trans*pprt*ati*>n he f--*t
the larger boat would afford better
business and carry freight and horses
as well as oassengers. Mr. Vnsev
hoped that the Board of Trade would
give him their mora' support.
dn answer to a call. fMntaln Brewster exolalned his position. He felt
a dividenee in sneaking on this subject and had not intended to take
any part in the discupsion, Hewer,

These, of course, were simply his sentiments.
Mr T. E. Ladner recapitulated his
report, as a member of the joint committee, appointed to promote direct
communication with Vancouver, made
to the Board at a previous meeting

would continue to work. Richmond
had taken up the matter to a certain

inexpensive. The B.C.E.R. Company's representatives. Mr. Sperling,

STEVESTuN, May 13.���Richmon
Municipality has formed a Progress
Club and at a meeting held at Steveston on Thursday night attar enrolling
_'3 members, elected Its office beereis
as follows: Hun, president, Reeve
Bridge; president, P. & Falkr.er; vice-
president, W. S. Trite.; secretary, F.
T. Beniteau; treasurer, A. A. Parker;
execuptive committee, J. B. O'Neill, J.
M. Steeves, W. Walker, T. B, Boones
and S. A. Ryder.
The apparent lethargy otf a rural
municipality has given way to an active recognition of Richmond's natural advantages ir. the martter of deep
avater frontage, Its situation on the
emibouchure of the Fraaer river, Its
rich agricultural land and the fishing
Metropolis within  its boundaries.
The constant traversing of Lulu
Island l>y engineers and survey parties also awakened the residents to
its Importance as a railroad route.
The assured presence of the B. C. E.
Railway and the well-founded prospects of the penetration of the Island
by the C. N, R. line, as well as other
agencies, have so stimulate-! the energies of the citizens that they only
required a lead to organize for a systematic development of Richmond.
This they got on Thursday night, at
Steveston, and they enthusastlcally
responded.
Reeve W. Bridge presided over the
meeting and received a cordial reception on rising to speak. He contrasted the backward conditions of the
municipality which prevailed five
years age. with those which obtained
now. They had today good roads !
and great improvements going on, a
water By_tem and a sewerage scheme.
The municipality was settling up rapidly. In fact they were in the tran-
sit'onary stage from a rural to a
mantufacturing community. Richmond's Inducements for Industrial
Bites could not be surpassed.
Dr. E. S. Rowe of the Progress
Chiib, Vancouver, gave a most inspiriting address on the great potentialities involved ln the Oreater Vancouver harbor project antl the expansions
in trade and properity to all the surrounding municipalities whrh would
eurely follow in Its wake. The opening of the Panama Calnal and the opportunities for trade it would offer
ar.d the advtanges of the Pacific
Coast ports to the grain trade of the
Northwestern provinces were eloquently dld-ited upon. He emp.K.-
sized the Importance of united co-operation amongst the municipalities
materially interested and the necessity of preparation.
Messrs. P. S. Falkr.er, W. T. Walker, Beniteau and others, also sipoke
in the same strain of optimism and
the cl_fo was formed with the office
bearers as above mentioned.
During the progress of the meeting
the Reeve unfortunately had to leave
through suflden indisposition and his
plaice was taken by Mr. Falnner.

locality. He gave h:::i all the Information he could in reply.
Mt. A. Davie asked If that was the
same outfit as the Information Bureau
in Van-oouver. If ao, a gentleman had
told bim he had asked how he could
get to the Delta, and they could not
tell  him.
Mr. Calvert thought they should get
up some printed matter in pamphlet
form.
The suggestion was approved of
and on Mr. Fisher's motion plate
views  were   ordered    to   be   inserted. | people   benefited   by   the   ferry   route

not   know.
-dr. Fisher pointed ont thnt the
meeting had already em.phia-.zed their
position in the matter. He disagreed
with Mr. Paterson that the 8.CQ_.il.
would not hear of a ferry. He had
accompanied Mr. Huchaii, of the
B.C.E.R. t. Boundary Bay thc- other
day. <>n their journey that gentleman went into ecstacies over its
unkiue pi ssloilitles as golf links and
the erection nf a splendid hotel. He
was greany taken with the country
and especially the beauty of the hedges
which reminded him of old England.
he said, lie stated in these words:
''What we want In this district is a
tram line to Woodwards and a ferry
that will bring motors across."
The cost  was limited  to  $50.
Market  Concerns,
.Mr. J. McMillan, manager of the
Vancouver City Market, was then allowed to speak in ne.'ence of his Institution, which he complained had
been unjustly criticised by Mr. E. Calvert and Mr. Ladner.     He stated that
to Vancouver and indignant at the
subsidy idea for it. Westham Island
people had as much right to a subsidy
as any of them. As to the bridge
scheme they would require two bridges
to get across to Woodwards. The
discussion  then  ceased.

Brewster had done his duty ln every
sense. On one occasion the speaker
had crossed the ferry with one passenger; returning there were only
two.
After asknowledging the votes of
thanks, the deputation withdrew.
The speakers were all heartily applauded during their speeches.
After the Delegation had retired,
Mr. A. D. Paterson said he had listened to the discussion that night, and
during the whole of lt. had never
heard a word of getting a tramway
from the road nearest approaching
their own municipality. He thought
if the energies of the Board of Trade
had been concentrated on that they
would have had it by that time. If

Messrs. Wrightson and Evans are importing Traction In the shape of elephants from Bom-bay to handle their
potato crop this faill. although It will
be undoubtedly a bumper. Mr.
Wrightson is devoting his spare time
to tra.'nlng a pointer pup.
There was a hn,ppy band of ptc-
nickers at Boundary Bay on Sunday
nnd all went merry as a marriage hell.,
In one party were Misses "Leila, Florence and Evelyn Lord and Messrs.
Brawn Hutcherson and "Spud" Dennis. Mr. Brawn was In tne water

joined  by  Mr.  Evans.
Mr. Thoa. Thirkle has purchased
through the agency of Mr. E. T. Calvert, of this town, a ,T. T. Case two-
row, three-horse potato cultivator.
Mr. Thirkle is one o .the most enterprising farmers in lhe Delta and is
endeavoring to bring the art of potato culture to the highest perfection.
Mr. Thirkle knows that the Delta can
produce the best potatoes in the world
ana .a determined that no effort on
his part will be spared to handle the
crop in the best manner.

SMALL OR LARGE SHEEP.
An Argument In Favor of Handling ths
Lighter Breeds.
The question often arises as to which
proves Itself the more profitable to tbo
breeder and feeder of sheep, a heavy
sheep or 11 small but better quality
one, writes W. 11. Underwood. Let us,
for example, take the Oxford uml
Hampshire cross us a type of big sheep,
It being it favorite cross, nnd the Shropshire as un example of u smaller und,
It may be said With nil due respect to
the before mentioned cross, a better
quality sheep.
It is well known thnt big sheep are
big consumers aud consequently cannot tie so thick on the land us small
sheep can. and. for Instance, where 100
breeding ewes of the Oxford-Hampshire type can be kept 140 Shropshire*
could be run on the same given qtian
tlty of land. Then, too, the Shropshire
Is more prolific than any oilier short
wooled breed, and, whereas one and
ono-fonrth lambs per ewe Is considered
quite n satisfactory average In the Oxford and Hampshire flocks or the cross
between the two above named, one
and three-fourths is quite common and
one and a half the usual average ln
Shropshire flocks, so that, taking the
example before mentioned on the same
given quantity of land, 100 cross Oxford-
Hatnpghlres would produce 125 lambs,
and the 140 Shropshires In all probability would produce 220, mortality
being about the same In both cases.
And again, when the time comes for
tbe lambs to go on grain there Is no
comparison between tbe amount thnt
in Oxford-Hampshire will consume as
against the Shropshire. One and one-
half pounds of grain per day Is about
tbe average quantity given to the flrst
mentioned sheep, whereas half that allowance Is ample and ls all that Is generally allowed to a Shropshire. Therefore the quantity of grain consumed
by the Shropshire*, although nearly
100 more, would be considerably less
per day than consumed by the Oxford-
Hampshlres and in five or six months'
feeding would amount to a pretty substantial difference.
Also a Shropshire will clip as great
a weight of wool as any other short
wooled breed and generally renlhes
more, and when draft ewes come to be
sold In the SMtumn those of the Shrop
shire or more compact type are far
better to sell, as appearances often go
against the sale of big, unshapely old
ewes. The mutton also Is of better
quality and makes more per pound In
the market thnn any save the Southdown.
An Iowa Sow Ration.
The Iowa experiment station ls using
a ration for brood sows nnd sucking
pigs that ls made up of seventy pounds
of cornmeal, ten younds of middlings,
ten pounds of 60 per cent meat meal or
tankage, five pounds of bran, two
pounds of oilmeul, oue pound of feeding quality of bone Hour, one pound of
limestone dust and n pound of salt.
These feeds are thoroughly mixed and
given In a thick slop, the aim being to
feed Just enough to enable the sow to
produce enough milk for her pigs.
This ration looks like un old fashioned doctor's prescription���n little of everything���but there Is u reason for it,
says Kansas Farmer. Iu the flrst place
It has proved to be the best and cheapest combination of feeds for the purpose, and ln the second place It produces results.
It is well understood that tbe sow
must bave flesh and bone forming feed
or the pigs will not develop properly.
The tankage, bone flour and limestone
dust are added to supply these elements
which are not present lu sufficient
quantities in the others.

Whunnock has been his only home.
it is 37 years ago since 1 became acquainted with him, that Is, since he
began to take me, In the discharge of
ministerial duty, up and down the
river In his row boat, down In the
early days u.s far as North Ann
(Eburne) and later up as far as
Mutsqui und NIcomen Island,    For at
least   US  years  1  depended  on   him   to
do work of that kind.    1 did not then
know   of,   nor  do   1   now   believe   that I City   council   resolutions   liieuri

boat   (as   he   sometimes   did)   for   as I log street   meetings and  requiring
many as  .13  miles  In  one    day,  often
against the tide, and, ut times, against
both wind and tide.    1 never knew one
who could  pull a  boat so lung as he
without  apparent  fatigue.     1   always
carried some food, but he could never
be  persuaded  to  rust  a  while or  eat
till  our  objective  point  was  reached.
And when our destination was reached he was just as bright and Jocular
as at the commencement.   He not only
had    great    powers    of    endurance���
strength to pull a long distance without being    exhausted���but    also self-
control   to  wait  a  long  time  without
becoming Impatient.    When out with
a  school  inspector  for    example     or
with myself, he sometimes had to wait

Ventilate Your Barns.
Farmers who are going to build barns
next summer should make arrangements now to put tn the King system
of ventilation ln their stables. It Is
not expensive If you make calculations
in time.
The Washington Agricultural college
has tbe following to say on the necessity of such ventilation:
Dairy barns are very frequently poorly ventilated. The dairy cow ls then
not only required to live, but to work,
under unfavorable Influences, and sbe
often falls a victim to such diseases as
���iberculosls, pneumonia, bronchitis and
colds. Foul air ts one of tbe prime
factors In the production of such diseases. Since tbe advent of sanitary
science in connection with ventilation
the air apsce allowed for each animal
has been Increased and a number of
methods of venllatlon have been devised. The exercise of a little care ln
such matters will protect the health of
animals, prevent premature death snd
also make possible tbe highest working

was the grippe. Towards the end of
my residence at Whonnock he began
to show signs of failing strength, and
though he never refused to accompany me I could see that the long
trips were too much for him und
ceased to ask him. So that at the time
of my life when I most needed him
with his boat, Robbie, by leason of
advancing years, was not ln a fu con

and injuries to the kidneys. These, he
says, were the result of being run into

came along at express speed, and without a whistle or warning of any kind
ran into h.m. The de-fence Is that Mr.
Andrews, in walking along the railway, was a trespasser, as It was private rightof-way, and he had no right
to be there.    Further than that, the B.
