Field���Heavers Lose to
Westham.
A friendly game was played on
Wednesday evening, the 3rd inst.,
between the Beavers and a team
from West End, New Westminster.
The game was- scheduled to start at
*:30 p. m., at which hour the visitors were on the field ready for play,
but the home team for some reason
could not muster their forces till
twenty minutes after seven. This
btate of affairs is, to say the least
of it, very unsatisfactory, and it is
to be hoped that in the future ull
games can be started as close to the
agreed on time us possible. Neither
team seemed to exert themselves
very much during the first half of
the "game, at which time the score
stood 4 goals to 2 ln favor of New
Westminster.

One ot the features at the New

June 5, were strawberries grown in
the Delta. The prevailing price was
two boxes for 25 cents, but a small
contingent went rapidly at 10 cents
the box. Gooseberries from the
same locality Bold very brisk at 10
cents and 15 cents per box.
Butter took a sudden drop and
sold at .0 cents and 35 cents the
pound retail and 25 and 30 cents
per pound wholesale. Eggs in large
quantities and in great demand sold
ut the usual price of 30 cents the
dozen retail and 25 cents wholesale.
Duck eggs for setting again brought
the old price of $1.
Around the meat stalls veal and

The Dominion Dairy Commissioner has issued a bulletin dealing with
the milk yield per acre which every
farmer should insist on getting from
his farm, by means of an average
herd of dairy cattle, which says:
"There are frequently noticed
yields as low as 250 pounds of milk

750 and 800 pounds per acre. Even
this Is little enough, for there are
plenty of authentic records of 1100

COMPLAINS OF

A communication was read by the
secretary, Mr. S. W. Fisher, at the
Board of Trade meeting, held last
Monday night in the council chamber, asking suport for the reorganized Fraser Valley Development
League.
Reeve Paterson informed the
meeting that the municipal council
had refused to join the proposed
league and on motion of Mr. W. R.
Ellis the board fell in line with the
action of the council, not believing
that any substantial gain was to be
derived in proportion to the expenses that would be involved.
A  letter  was  received  from   Mr.
Neglect of Richmond Council to Repair Plunking Is Curse of Comment-���Small Sum Involved.
Part of the planking on the No.
5 road from Fraser avenue to Woodward's Landing Is at present in very
bad repair, and motorists complain
very bitterly of the neglect of the
Richmond council in not doing something to better these conditions. Not
alone Is It severe on the tires, but
there Is great danger of many of the
loose planks springing up, which is
reported to have happened in several
cases, causing more or less damage
to motors.
To repair tJhis planking the cost
is estimated at between $50 and $60,
which ls a fraction compared with

A communication was read from
Mr. C. H. Stuart Wade, regarding
the first annual convention of the
Associated Boards of Trade in New

Delta Board of Trade reaffirmed its
position taken at an earlier meeting
it being unable to see its way to
join an Associated Board.
A letter was received from the
Vancouver Automobile Club with regard to the present hours of the ferry which they state is giving complete satisfaction.
On motion of Mr. H. Wilson seconded by Mr. A. Davie, the secretary
was instructed to write to the Provincial Minister of Public Works,
pointing out the danger of the approach to the ferry at the Woodward's side.
Owing to an entertainment which
was being given in the McNeely Hall
other matters such as a communication from the W. C. T. U. re a reading and rest room, and an application from the captain of the ferry
for a light at the head of the approaches were laid over until the

JUVENILE PIANISTS.
BOUNDARY  BAY  NEWS.
Mr.  W.  J.  Brandrith    and    son,
Frank, visited    the    twin  cities on
business   connected   with   exhibition
work on Monday and Tuesday, leav-'
ing for home Wednesday.
It is understood that Mr. Brandrith has made an offer to the Delta
Agricultural Society to stage a district exhibit at the Dominion fair,
Victoria, this year.
All regret to hear that the teacher
of   Boundary   Bay   school   has   resigned.
The council have let the contract
for clearing out a right of way on
the road to the boundary line.
The Brandrith road is to receive a
coating of gravel this summer.
The recent rains have caused the
farmers on the Delta to wear a
broad smile.
Young Performers of  Ladner Score
a Success���A Most Enjoyable
Concert.
A most enjoyable concert was given last Monday night in the McNeely
Hall, Ladner, by the pupils of MrB.
Cave-Browne-Cave, assisted by the
Choral Society. Everything went off
without a hitch and great praise is
due to Mrs. Cave-Browne-Cave for
the successful manner in wihch she
carried out this entertainment. The
ball was well filled by a most appreciative audience who were not alone
pleased, but surprised, at the manner in which the juveniles did their
parts. The stage was very tastefully
decorated, flowers and palms being
in abundance. It is not generally
known that the proceeds of this con-
cert went towards the securing of a
reading and rest room which the Vt*.
C. T. IT. are endeavoring lo obtain
for Ladner.
The following is the programme
of the evening:
Songs by the juvenile class ar.'1
recitations by Miss Grace Ridge;
pianoforte solo by Miss Lanning and
song by Miss Cave-Browne-Cave; a
series of compositions by Kinross
were rendered by the little pianists
as follows: (a) Folk Song, (b)
March, Misses Sadie and Gladys Benson; (a) Study, (bj Romance, Misses Jean Fisher, Gladys Benson and
Master Murray Davie; (a) Study,
(b) Melody, Miss Jean and Master
Douglas McDermid; (a) Rustic

The Delta Times extends its heartiest congratulations to Mr. and Mrs.
H. N. Rich, who celebrated their
silver wedding on Wednesday, the
10th   inst.
The folowing from a copy of the
Columbian, dated the 10th of June,
188. , is of interest:
"The marriage of Mr. H. N. Rich
to Miss May Green, daughter of 0.
P. Green, Esq., was solemnized this
morning at All Saints' Church, Ladner, Rev. C, Croncber officiating.
The church was thronged with
friends of the high contracting parties, who assembled to witness the
ceremony. The bride was attired In
a handsome travelling dress and
looked very charming indeed. After
the ceremony the usual wedding
break fust followed, which was attended by many friends and relations. The happy couple were the
recipients of many beautiful presents, both costly and useful. Later
in the day Mr. Rich and bride,
amidst a shower of old shoes and
rice left for Westminster. From this
city they go to Victoria and other
cities  on   their  honeymoon."
COLONY FARM CHANGES HANDS
Famous   Coquitlam   Institution   Becomes Adjunct of Agricultural
College of University.
Speaking of dispatches from Vic-
tt ria stating that the Colony Farm
of the Provincial Mental Hospital,
Essondale, had been transferred to
the board of governors of the Provincial University, as an adjunct to
the Agricultural College, Dr. Doherty, superintendent of the Mental
Hospital, said this morning that for
the present the transfer would make
little difference In the management
ol the farm. Eventually, of course,
the direction of the farm would pass
into the hands of the board of governors and the farm would be converted into a demonstration farm for
the students. It was understood that
the milk and other by-products of
the demonstration work would go
to supply the mental hospital as now.
Dr. Doherty stated that Professor
Klinck. the recently appointed dean
of agriculture, had visited the farm
and had been much impressed with
it, declaring it to be practically perfect for the purposes of demonstration. Dr. Doherty thought the
government had probably acted
largely on the recommendations of
Professor Klinck.
The farm comprises 4 00 acres of
land composed of varying soils, this
variation adding to its demonstration   value.      With   the   farm   taken

OTTAWA, June 9.���A statement
as to the new Canadian Pacific Railway mail service on the Pacific was
made by Hon. George E. Foster in
House of Commons yesterday. He
said that tlie old contract had expired and that the British government had withdrawn its contribution. The new contract called for a
fortnightly service instead of a
monthly service and the subsidy
would be increased by $229,000.
The new vessels are already placed
on the service the Empress of Asia
and  the  Empress of Russia.

unwise to further restrict the taking
of the tish in the rive:-.
In lien of the two resolutions, and
as a pr.posaj thut Co;, j aylor and
Mr, Cunn.ngham could s i.cessfully
suppjrt nt 0 t_wa, it was suggested
thnt the government be asked to bar
Asiatics from fishing above the
bridge by restricting such fishing
all the year round to actual bona
fide residents. This, however,
would prevent lower river fishermen
from fishing up river for spring salmon, as they are now allowed to do,
and would prevent up river fishermen from fishing down river.
Not  Favorably Received.
Messrs. Broderick, Browse and
Insley, sr., were the principal speak- J
es in the discussion of the sugges-1
tion contained in the president's report, the two former speaking several times. The suggestion met
with no support and was criticized
at length. The speakers stuck to
the necessity for continuing to support the resolutions already passed
by the association, which had received the support of several civic
and semi-public bodies, with more to
Canon Will Re Introduced as Part of
Agreement Settling See House
Question.
(From The British Columbian.)
The Church of England Synod of
the diocese of New Westminster has
been called by the Bishop to meet at
St. Paul's Church, Vancouver, on
Wednesday of this week, and is expected to continue in session during
Thursday and Friday.
Among the notices of business to be
taken up is a new canon to be introduced by the chancellor, A. Dunbar
Taylor, K. C, to give effect to that
portion of the agreement settling the
See House question which provides
that Holy Trinity Cathedral in this
city shall retain for all time the rank
that has so long been hers.
As a part of the agreement the
canon is expected to go through without opposition, though some amendment of its drafting may be found
necessary. The synod will be asked
to take into consideration the alleged
alteration last year of the canon relating to the Easter offering to the
clergy.
The Revs. Owen Bulkley and E. R.
Bartlett give notice of a motion to
the effect that the "Synod can no
longer give moral or financial support to what Is known as the bishop's plan for theological education in
the province."
The object of this is to remove the
anomaly and expense of two halls,
and substitute one college affiliated to
the University of B. C, which seems
to be all that is necessary.
Two years' trial of the plan has
failed to give general satisfaction,
and it is not at all certain that the
motion will not carry. What does
seem to be certain is that there will
be rather more than less debate over
the question.
It is possible tbat the synod will
take some action in the matter of entertaining rhe general synod of the
Church of England in Canada, which
is to meet in Vancouver during September next. In any event, particular interest will be taken in the election of delegates to this important
triennial gathering.

OTTAWA, June 10���The naval Issue was stirred up the Commons last
evening on the estimates of the
Naval Department. Sir Wilfrid
Laurier thought tbe spending of
n-oney to train Bailors to light when
there were no ships was absurd.
Premier Borden said that tihe
naval reserve plan was based upon
the requests from the different parts
of Canada that naval training might
be taken up, just as military training.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier asked for a
statement in regard to the naval
col'ege.
Hon. ,T. D. Hazen said that there
were now forty students taking the
course. Bight are on H. M. S. Berwick.
Sir Wilfrid   remarked  that  there
was no mention    of the    Canadian
navy.     Mr.  Hazen    said  that tbey
would serve on the Canadian navy!
too, "when we have a na.vy."
On the Great Lakes.
Sir Wilfrid said that he doubted
the wisdom of having training stations on the Great Lakes.   The Canadian government, instead of establishing training stations, should expostulate with the United States government taking over the stations on
their side of tbe lakes.
Mr. Hazen replied that Canada had
always protested against war res-
eels or training ships on the Great
Lakes and it was not now intended
to establish a training ship there.
Mr. Borden stated that since the
proposals he had submitted had failed in Parliament, it had been found
necessary by the Mother Country to
make certain provisions in the matter of defence, which was perhaps as
good a justification of tbe action he
had taken as could be found. The
(present proposal was based on requests from different parts of Canada that men might engage in naval training just as in militia training. Though Canada's permanent
force was mainly composed of persons not of Canadian birth, there
were many thousands in Canada's]
volunteer service because it was possible to enter it without foregoing'
the opportunity to make a living for
cneself. It would be possible to enroll in the new service a considerable number of men who would he
prepared to serve either in the Canadian or the British navy.
N. T. R. Affairs.
At the morning sitting there was
an interchange betwen Hon. J. D.
Reid and several of the Opposition
members in regard to the National
Transcontinental Railway. The discussion arose in connection with a
million  dollar vote.
Mr. Graham asked why this was
required.
Mr. Reid said the commission decided that the $8,000,000 was not
sufficient, and thought it advisable
to put another million dollars in the
estimates in case It might be required.
Mr. Pugsley���Are you going to
bring the grades up to the standard?
Mr. Reid���Any grade work in regard to which there might be complaint would be within the hundred
miles west and 20 miles eapt of
Cochrane. The road between Winnipeg and Moncton will be ready for
operation this fall, and If there are a
few sags in the 300 miles, the
Grand Trunk Pacific can remedy lt,
and It would be added to the cost
according to the terms of the contract. It is advisable to try to get
the road completed at the earliest
possible moment in order thnt the
operation may take place.
