Closed Deal  Whereby They Will Ris-   Company Has u Capital of .SIO.OOO in
associate Grain from .Milling In- Snares of $100 Each.    New
terests.   Ladner not Affected, Firm   Name.
The Brackman-Ker Hilling Company, of Victoria and Vancouver, and
the pioneer milling and elevator
house operating ill Alberta, with four
cereal mills and a:i extensive line of
grain elevators, have just closed a
deal whereby they will disassociate
thoir grain from their milling interests. An arrangement has been
made commencing from Aug. 13, by
which their "B. & K." line of grain
elevators will be consolidated with
the elevators belonging to file Alberta
Grain Company, and this part of their
business will be operated jointly under the name of the Alberta Grain
Company, with headquarters at Calgary.
The rapid growth of Alberta
and the Prairie Provinces, especially
in the grain trade, made it apparent
it would be necessary to enlarge their
operations and as) a result of negotiations the above amalgamation was
brought about.
With elevators at 40 of the leading
grain centres in Alberta, the new-
consolidated company Is now one of
the strongest operating in the Northwest, and Kie two firms jointly interested have ample capital at their
backs to enable them to develop their
elevator line and keep pace with the
growth  of the great Northwest.
The Erackma.n-Ker Company will
continue as before to operate their
milling business under their own
name nnd the above amalgamation
and 'separation of the grain interests
will enable them to give their undivided and close personal attention
to this part of their business, which,
owing to the high-grade cereals produced under their "B. & K." trade
mark brand, has grown into an exceedingly large trade and a constantly
increasing one as the territory
(Western Canada) they cover increases  in population.
Notice of the Incorporation of the
Delta Shingle Company, Ltd., is contained in this week's issue of the Provincial Gazette. The company has a
capital of $10,000 in shares of $100
each. The incorporation Is made for
the purpose of acquiring and taking
ever the business now carried mi at
Delta., under the style of Damaske &
Thompson, and to carry on business
as timber merchants, shingle manufacturers and saw mill proprietors,
and to buy. sell, grow, prepare for
market, manipulate, import, export
nnd deal in timber nnd wood ot all.

The regular meeting of the Delta
Council will be held on Saturday evening, when the water works loan bylaw will come up for its third reading.
It is not likely that tiny changes will
be made in the by-law, which will

The S.S. Sonoma continues tn do a
good business on the Ladner-Steve-
ston run. Owing to the backward
season the earlier part of the summer
traffic on the popular-little steamer
was somewhat slow. The past month
hiw'ver, a great many people have
been travelling. Taking things gen-
vT.-illv throughout the summer a large
number of Delta people have been
travelling���more than bus been the
case in former, years. The proximity
of the A. V. P. exhibition, of course,
has been responsible for this. When

The Pilgrims Social Club, whose
meeting last week had been postponed
until Wednesday of this week, did not
meet. On account of many nf the
members being busily engaged In various ways while the harvesting season
Is on, it wns thought better not to

before the Pilgrims make merry again.

H, Wilson, of Lanning, Fawcett &
Wilson, was picked as one of the referees for ,the lacrosse match last Sat-
urebiy between Vancouver and New
Westminster. Owing to previous engagements, however, he was unable to
otilclate. In view of the disgraceful
fracas at the conclusion of the game,
when Percy Peele, who acted l:i Mr.
Wilson's place, was the victim of
personal assault at the hands of Vancouver hoodlums, the honor of officiating at these games Is a somewhat
precarious one. It ls likely, however,
that Mr. Wilson will be called upon to
act In the near future. Referees, suitable to both teams are rather bard
to secure. Mr. Wilson's well-known
impartiality and his knowledge of f.ie
game eminently equip him to hold
down the difficult position. Some few
years back Mr. Wilson was no small
pt tatoes us a lacrosse player himself.
No one knows better than he of the
injustice of foul play and the harm It

Boundary Bay is an Ideal place for
'camping. Its particular attraction is
j the excellent bathing beach, where one
can wade out for many hundreds of
yards and still lie in safe water. Tbe

Bay will be one of the most popular
summer resorts of the province. It is
only a question of time until it has
street car connection and then watch
the crowds come. British Columbia
has many spots but good bathing
be'aehos are rare. At present thei
Boundary Bay beach is an asset to the
Delta in the way of recreation. In
time It may become nn asset In other
ways more tangible.

costing Bomewhere in the neighborhood   el'  $1,   annually.    The     Im-

it has been thought that permanent
work placed here would, in the long
run, lie a saving to the municipality
and give much more satisfaction. The
council, witli this in view, called upon
an engineer of experience in dyking,
to give an estimate of what such permanent work would cost. It was
thought that this would he forthcoming before this so tha.t if it were decided to go ahead with the work it could
be started this year. The .estimate has
not been presented as yet but it is
likely that it will be placed in the

night. What tiie work will cost is
problematic, lint it is stated at anywhere from twenty to forty thousand
In view of the probability of the

HE past year has been an unusually important and fruitful
one In the work of the charitable and philanthropic societies throughout the country, and the
progress toward more effective and
scientific treatment of the causes of
poverty and crime has been notable.
For these reasons exceptional interest
attaches to the forthcoming national
conference of charities and corrections
at Buffalo from June U to Id, inclusive.
It is now thirty-six years since the
llrst of these conferences was held. Although the plan of the conference has
resulted in the adoption of very systematic methods for the conduct of tho
proceedings, there has never been a
written constitution, and tho conference really consists of a rather informal meeting of seven or eight large
bodies of men nnd women engaged in
as many different lines of social and
philanthropic work In the United
States and Canada. They come together in what is. ns the name implies,
a national conference rather than a
convention, and, owing to the freedom
of action permitted, more practical results are often attained.
The president of the conference this
year is Ernest P. Blcknell, director of
the American National Red Cross in
Washington. Mr. Blcknell is one of
the foremost men in the philanthropic
world ln America. He is a graduate
| of the University of Indiana and was
for a number of years a reporter on
tho Indianapolis News. He left newspaper work to become the secretary of
the state board of charities of Indiana, nnd during his administration

year ago. At the time of the Sau
Francisco disaster Mr. Blcknell wns
called from Chicago to the stricken
city to help straighten out the tangles
in the relief work there. Ills efficiency
and diplomacy won for bim national
recognilion, and he wns soon after
called to Washington to become the

recently in the earthquake zone in !
Italy. He has Just returned from tiie j
latter Oeld of activity", and his presl-
dential address to the conference in
Buffalo will deal with "Problems of
Relief Growing Out of Great Disasters." The year has been one In which
especial attention has been given
among students of social problems and
workers in the tenement districts to
reform!" pertaining to caring for dependent children, to the betterment of
conditions in congested districts and to
the opportunities for educating the
public along sociological lines by use
of tho press. The conference at tho
White House on the subject of treat-.
ment of dependent children, called by
Mr. Roosevelt, resulted In bringing to
light many new Ideas on this theme.    J
The committee of the conference on

which Robert A. Woods of South End

One of the interesting developments
In social work Iu the United States in j
recent years has been the application 1
I of the methods of organized charity to !
work for social betterment ln country 1
communities.   This matter will be discussed by Professor L. II. Bailey of !

Mmtgbt I was very fortunate. In the
of which are here given.
Mrs. I). C. Coakley of  Rossland, a
winner in January, states: "I was
advised by a friend to try Royal
Standard Flour. I find it an excellent bread floor, anel will recommend
it to all my friends as such."
W. H. Helghton of Mission City,
writes: "Were there' no premiums
offered with the flour, 1 would not
use' any other flour, for we find it
makes light, white, sweet bread, second to none."
0. A.. Keating, another Rossland
winner who succeeded in securing one
of the dinner sets In Juno, says: "I
am sure when people once use Royal
Standard Flour (hey will ask for it
again. We have used it for some
time, anil in twenty-five years experience' we' have never had a better
flour, and can only sny that as long
as we can get Royal Standard, we
want no  other."
Another enthusiastic user, Mrs.
MilleU, iitl Courtney St., Victoria,
writes: "1 have made bread for
twenty-five years, and have tried
every flour in this fair Dominion,
but  Royal  Standard beats  them  all."
We think these testimonials prove
the worth of Royal Standard Flour
���the flour of superior quality.
Among the June winners are: G.
A. Keating, Rossland; Mrs. M. MilleU, Victoria, B. C; Mr. Thos. Fowler, Prince Rupert; Mrs. Jas. Nelson,

through the death
of II. II. Rogers
in corporations In
which be was an
active and controlling faciei'. Some
comparatively new
j. i\ morgan, jh. men have come to
the front ln consequence of Mr. Rogers' decease. Among them are his
son, II. II. Rogers. Jr.; his son-in-law.
Urban II. Broughton; J. I'. Morgan.
Jr., and James A. Molfelt, who succeeded Mr. Rogers as vice president
of the Standard Oil Company of New
Jersey, the leading corporation In the
combination making up the oil trust.
Mr. Mr.ffett has for some time been a
director of the company and Is president of the Standard Oil Company of
Indiana, upon which Judge Land's Imposed the famous $29,000,000 fine. J.
P. Morgan, Jr., has taken the late
Mr. Rogers' place ns a director of the
United States Steel corporation. Willi
the exception of young Mr. Morgan
the men named have not been much in
the eye of the financial world up to
now. The question arises us to
whether they possess the ability to
carry on the enterprises intrusted to
their direction to so large an exten
and to win the same degree of success
that their predecessors did.
The death of Mr. Rogers removes one
of tho master minds of finance of his
day. He wns recognized as the most

cicrs and captains of Industry making
up the "Standard i/il crowd." us they
say in Wall street. Willi .lobn D
Rockefeller In retirement, William
Rockefeller entering old age and Rogers dead sonic think that Standard
influence has now reached its culmination and will soon be on the decline.
Though Hie combination still has great
wealth bae'l; of It no acknowledged
leader has yet appeared. Upon the
question whether any of the new men
will develop unusual powers of leadership much of the future of the combination will depend.
The Into II. II. lingers devoted a
great deal of time ln his closing years
to the training of his son in the hope
that he would be worthy to succeed
him in the management of Important
Industrial interests. After Mr. Broughton married his daughter Cora he came
to repose much confidence In him and
seems to have planned tho division of
responsibilities ns to his estate between his son and his son-in-law. Mr.
Broughton Is a middle aged man and
a mining engineer by profession, and
Mr. lingers put him In charge of the
United Metals Selling company, gave
him the direction of the construction
of the Virginian railway, Into which
he had put about $40,000,000 of his
great fortune, and made blm n director in most of Hie Important corpora*
tions with which he wns associated,
As for young Mr. Rogers, the liuan-
clnl world awaits wllh some concern
his proof that he Is a chip of tlir> old
block. Mr. lingers is thirty years old
He was graduated from Columbia university In lfion. lie married a New
York girl. Mary Benjamin, Ihe daughter of George II. Benjamin, Nov. 8.
1900, and has a hone at Tuxedo as
well ns a town house at HO East Fifty-
seventh street. New York.
Young Mr. Rogers wns called to his
father's aid during the panic of 11)07.
when Mr. Rogers wns first threatened
with a complete physical breakdown
He was made a director of the Richmond lighting and Transportation
company several years before that,
and his first responsibilities in business
were endured there. Ills father
brought tt about that all sorts of problems were left to the young man, apparently' accidentally, until he had
learned to meet them with determination nnd resource.
With his fnther's attack of illness In
1907 the time came when his training
proved itself. lie took an office near
that of his father nt 20 Broadway. He
was let into his father's innermost secrets, and nothing wns done with which
he wns not made familiar. He has
traveled much and been prominent in
the national guard.
