Much interest is being taken by
the farmers of the Delta in the coming provincial exhibition, which will
be held in New Westminster from
September 30 until October 4, inclusive.
Many farmers are busy getting
their prize horses and cattle Into condition for the show while others are
exhibiting them at present in the
Vancouver exhibition.
Delta always plays a prominent
part in the provincial exhibition in
the stock department and the district is rapidly gaining a reputation
for its splendid stock. In past years
Delta farmers and stock breeders
have captured many prizes and they
will again endeavor to repeat their
Many new features will be introduced at the provincial exhibition
this year and many new prizes have
been added to the different departments, while the value of many of
the prizes have beeti  increased.
Leading the way for fairs in Western Canada the management of the
exhibition have this year offered "he
grand total of $60,000 in prizes and
attractions and they promise that the
fair this year will justify them in
this large expenditure.
Although the Delta plays such ar,
important part in the stock department and many individual entries
are received in other departments
there has been no district exhibit to
compete for the coveted Dewar
trophy and the $3,000 In cash prizes
for some years.
Speaking the other day Manager
MacKenzie stated that he regretted
that Delta did not enter an exhibit
in this competition. He said that
the district had all the necessary
adjuncts to make a successful exhibit and that he would like very
much  to see an  exhibit  from  Delta.
A feature of the exhibition this
year will be the horse show, which
will be held in the magnificent new-
horse show building, which has been
described as the best west of Toronto.
The new horse show arena, whieh
was opened last year, is equipped
with every modern facility and the
new arrangements being made for
stabling the valuable horses that will
be seen in the ring will be much
appreciated by exhibitors. A new-
stable with hitching and washing
shed is now being erected and will
be ready in ample time for September   30,   the  opening  date.
The judging arena is 200 feet long
by 90 feet wide, the extra width in
the Westminster arena over the usual
width of judging rings giving a better opportunity, not only to th.e
judges but to exhibitors to show at
their best.
A large sum has been spent in obtaining high class special features
and attractions and some of the most
thrilling and sensational feats will
be displayed on the platform in front
of the grand stand.
The better babies' contest will also
be a new feature. This is not an
old fashioned beauty show but a new-
contest of correct proportions, fine
human   mechanism   and   intelligence.
Three bands will be in attendance
and everything for the comfort of
the visitor will be found on the
Local   Member  of   Provincial   House
Assures Delta People ot Tliis
���Surveyors at Work.
Mr. F. J. McKenzie, the member
for this district in the Provincial
parliament, in conversation with Mr.
W. A. Kirkland, this week, spoke
favorably of the establishment of the
Ladner to Woodward's Landing ferry
at the present time.
Mr. McKenzie stated that the people of Delta could rest assured thut
the work on the approaches wou'd
be undertaken by the government as
soon as surveys were completed and
a satisfactory route could be fixed
| upon, and that it was the intention
to endeavor to have the ferry In
operation this fall.
Delta citizens are anxious to know
' whether the approach is to be over
the marsh or along on higher ground,
jand there is some difference of opin-
! ion as to  which route to a landing-
j point  would  be  better.       They  say
that   surveyors   have   been   at   work
within the week on lines across the
marsh, and that it appears that this
coyrse  is  favored.    If  it  is  adopted
j the   road   will   be   made   by   driving
; piles and planking the driveway.

Stock Exhibitors  From  the  District
Sweep the Board ut the Vancouver Fair.
(From The British Columbian.)
While bovincs and equlnes go before the sharp-eyed judges at Hastings Park, Vancouver, this week,
one herd of noble blooded Holstein
cattle there is supremely indifferent
to the whole proceeding. The individual members do not bat an eye.
They look as though Insufferably
bored, and perhaps they are, for they
have won so many prizes ns to be
satisfied with prize winning, Twelve
in number, they come from the Colony Farm at Coquitlam, and there
is probably no better herd in all
Canada, and few better in the United States.
This herd is not entered for prizes
at  the  Vancouver     Exhibition,  and
stands simply as nn  illustration    of
what  continued   good  breeding  and
care can accomplish.    But it is not <
the  only splendid  herd  to  be  seen
there.   Dairymen in the Fraser Val- [
ley take a keen interest in pure bred '
stock.    Mr. Basil Gardom, of Dewd-
ney,  for instance, has   won   twelve |
firsts,  u  championship,  and  several
seconds and  thirds  this  week with
a string of Holsteins which has received almost as much attention as
the Colony Farm twelve.   Hon. Thos.
W.   Paterson,   of   Delta,   has   swept;
practically all the prizes in the Shorthorn division and has divided those
in  the Aberdeen Angus breed with
Chas. Hope, of Langley Fort, Joseph
Thompson  of     Chilliwack  has won
several prizes with his showing    of
When the awards aro summarized
it will be found that Fraser Valley
dairymen have been practically the
"whole show," and that what little
competition was encountered came
mostly from the prairies in herds
which have been touring the summer
fairs and are now doing British Columbia.
Yesterday and the day before the
bad weather kept the crowds away
from the exhibition, but the judging
went on just the same. The awards
are complete in the poultry division.
Burnaby and South Vancouvr chicken experts were prominent exhibitors, and judging from the part they
played in the prize winning these
neighboring municipalities jusi about
lead the province in thoroughbred
fowls. The Surprise Poultry Yards,
Mrs. J. Lascelles, Bearcroft & Son.
and W. H, Brett were among the
prize winners,
B. V. Peate, of Lulu Island, won
prizes with White Orpingtons, a
class in which competition was very
heavy. C. W. Robbins of Chilliwack,
whose pen of Buff Orpingtons entered In the International egg-laying
contest at Victoria, has led throughout, had several of his birds entered,
but failed to get within the money.
Thlj afternoon the _*ulg**s wl'l announce their decisions in the district
competition in agricultural products.
The first prize offered is 1*500, aud
contenders are Chilliwack, Burquit- i
lam, Rlrhm nd and S**utl. Vancou- |
ver. Mr, Wallace Wh t ng, wh. Las
chaige i f t'e Burquitlam exhibit, |
has got tog ther a ve y good collection, not the least interesting fia-
ture of which is a hive of b'jes at
work. A good exhibit of dairy products  is also  shown.

and Porter, who hive charge, of th>-
Richmond district exhibit, clashed!
yesterday in the agricultural and
garden produce competitions, and I
the Lulu Island nurserymen i merg-1
eel victorious, winning the largest I
number of poinis. and the champion- [

WAPATO, Sept. 3.���-Fire, said to
be of Incendiary origin, totally destroyed the hex factory on the
Thompson fruit ranch, one of the
largest in the Yakima Valley, located
near Donald, at midnight. With the
factory 80,000 peach boxes were destroyed. By strenuous efforts on
the part of the crew and neighbors
who were attracted to the BCene by
the blaze, the large packing sheds
were saved. Coming right when the
picking and packing season for El-
berta peaches is fairly opened the
loss is a severe one. Mr. Thompson,
however, says that there will be no
cessation In the labor of harvesting
the crop. He has ordered three cars
of boxes from outside, and the neci
Fary balance will be manufactured
on the grounds. The loss is ���;���
ed at $5000.

commands world-wide attention.
Think of the number of newspapers there are in North America.

Think of the enterprises that are

Look at the advertisements.
Note the messages to an appreciative public.
Observe how the advertisers aim

Integrity of character; good store

public demand. Proper and effective stock displays.
These are the spokes in a gigantic

So when you read the advertisements in THE DELTA TIMES give
this subject some thought and you

Cohoes a.e now mingling in considerable numbers with the tail end
of the main sockeye run and the

fishermen a good deal of sorting to
do. As a result of the increase in
cohoes a price has been agreed upon
for them among the canners and
fresh flsh dealers and this morning it
was announce at 15 cents per flsh.
Also the sockeye is dropped again to
the same price, though lately 20
cents has been paid and some canners, anxious to complete the pack
or to give their cannery help enough
work to keep them from seeking
other employment, paid even more.
It Is reported that a few collecting
boats went as high as 35 cents for
sockeyes expected about the middle

improbable that any cohoes will be
put into cans this season, but as the

Richmoud council was notified at the
regular monthly meeting yesterday
that the municipality's title to a
valuable water record in Seymour
creek, secured seven years ago, had
been confirmed by Messrs J. F. Armstrong and E. Davies, members of
the board of investigation. A sister
municiaplity has raised objection to
Richmond's possession of the record.
Reeve Bridge and members of the
council freely expressed tnelr satisfaction and pleasure at the favorable
settlement of the dispute. Although
Richmond has a very good agreement with New Westminster city,
and secures under the .terms of that
sufficient water to accommodate this
district for some time to -come, it
was felt that there should be a second source of supply to fall back
upon in case of need. Until Richmond finds use for it, It has suggested that it be loaned to South
Vancouver, and last year this came

Judge Forin Disposed of Case Which
Wns of Great Interest to
FERNIE, B. C, Sept. 3. ��� His
Honor Judge Forin disposed of
a case last week in which the greatest interest was taken locally. Williams and Davidson were associated
in a proposition known as the Anglo-
American Trust Company, better
known in Fernie as the "Big Four"
Trust Company. Davidson ls now
awaiting trial at the fall assizes.
Williams was charged with retaining a cheque for $500 which had
been obtained by Davidson from
Mrs. Kolbus, of Michel, under false
pretenses. On April 7 Davidson had
called on Mrs. Kolbus and in an offhand way had induced her to sign
her name to a document, the contents I
of which she did not understand. She
suspected that It might be a cheque
and she went to the bank In Michel
Immediately after Davidson left, and
stopped payment on It. Shortly afterward, Williams and Davidson appeared at the bank and wanted the
cheque marked. They were refused
and were told that payment on it
had been stopped.
On April 10 Williams tried to deposit the cheque to his personal account at the Bank of Hamilton here,
but he was again turned down, although he w-as told that the cheque
would  be taken  for collection.
Williams has already served a
term in Kamloops jail for obtaining
money under false pretences.
The defense was that the $500
had been given by Mrs. Kolbus for
stock in the Trust Company. There
was no application for stock and no
certificate was issued.
His honor was most severe in his
remarks on the prisoner's connection
with the Trust Company. It was
evident that the entire scheme was
conceived in fraud and that the men
came here with no other assets for
operating a trust company than a
book of blank share certificates. He
sentenced Williams to two years in
the penitentiary.

������_���_-!_-.:'_.*__-_ j_.-..7_ THE DELTA TIMES
This Is One of Conclusions Come to
By Dr. MoMurrlch as Result
of Study.
There is a section of the fourth
annual report of the Canadian Commission of Conservation thai is of
especial interest to the residents of
this coast and particularly to New
Westminster people at the present
time. This is the report of Dr. J.
"P. McMurrich, director of the anatomical department of Toronto University, on his investigation of the
kabits  of   the  Pacific   coast salmon.
It was four years ago '.hat Dr. Mc-
Murrich came to this coau With
.no intention of investigating the salmon but seeing with his own eyes
what a "big" year really meant in
���Its wonderful harvest of fish, found
his scientific curiosity aroused. Thus
during two summers he made his
headquarters at the government biological station at Departure Bay, on
the coast of Vancouver Island, and
studied the six different kinds of
salmon with a view to adding to the
very slight sum of knowledge possessed  of them.
Perhaps the most interesting of
the results achieved'by Dr. McMurrich, and one which is mostly likely
to lead to important results as hi-
observations are added to and verified during a longer period of time,
Is his tentative conclusion that the
si-ales of the Pacific coast salmon
might show the age of the fish a?
those of the Atlantic salmon and the
English carp have been shown to do,
Hie first researches along this line
having been entered on in Europe
where the ages of carp bred In artificial ponds were known and the
connection between the age of the
fish and its scale development was
possible of proof. It was the information he received of the recurrence of the four year cycle in the
case of the sockeye and the two-year
period in the case of tne humpback
which suggested these researches,
'while the doctor's enthusiasm was
fired by the enormous numbers of
flsh he saw running ip the Fraser
Rings Tell History.
As a result of his work, Dr. McMurrich has fairly well established
the theory that the scales of salmon
j*b through regular course of nnatom.
icn' development that, corresponds
with its age, certain rings being
ndded each year to tho scale, much
as the age of a tree can be judged
by thi- rings of wood put on. In
fie case of the sockeye the rings
added each of three years to the
nuclous thnt represents the first year
scale of the fry are quite distinctly
developed and bear out the familiar
conjecture that, as a general rule,
tho sockeye has a life history of
four years, the first in fresh water
and the three others in salt water
which  it reaches as a grilse.
In his report, the doctor states thai
of the six Bpeclea of salmon tin this
coast, five belong toJhe genus On-
eorhynctiB and only fffie, the steelhead, to the same genus as the Atlantic salmon, or salmo salar. The
five, are the sockeye, cohoe, dog Salmon, spring and humpback, the last
of which is believed to run in a
two-year cycle, one big year alternating with a small year. The doctor also .alls attention to the absence
uf this cycle period in the northern
Waters of the Province, where fluctuations do nnt occur to the same
degree nor with the same regularity,
Establishes Cycles,
To prove the regularity of these:
cycles in tin- sockeye run, Mr. McMurrich quotes tiie figures of Ihe
packs on the Fraser during a number of years. As far back as 1993
four hundred thousand cases were
packed on the river, that being a
big year; in the two succeeding years
tin pai li tell off until it reached i;.-i
lowest point iu the third season
while in 1 S!��7. tho fourth year, over
830,000 cases were put up. Again
Tor three years the pack was small
until in 1.01'the big year again occurred and gave over nine, hundred
thousand cases, falling very much
lhe following year, while in the third
year, 1904, only about 17,000 oases
���were packed. In 1906 there was another increase end on the fourth
year again. 1909, over 600,000 cases
were   put    up.
This   was   due   to   he   the   neyj   big
year and, while the run had not. occurred when Dr. McMurtlch wrote
liis report, it carried out the ruli

exhibitors  of  standard   bred   horses.
In the swine division Banford
Brothers are among the chief exhibitors. They have Yorkshires,
Berkshires, Poland Chinas, Tam-
worths and Durocs entered.
The district exhibits of Richmond,
Burquitlam and Chilliwack are attractively placed, and the competition is so close that it is a gamble
as to which will win the first prize
of $500. Chilliwack's display is
very strong in garden produce, and
on the shelves practically every vegetable is shown. Musk melons, which
some people suppose will not develop
In the Fraser Valley, are there.
Richmond's display, which was collected by Messrs. Tomsett nnd Porter, has a good showing of the grains
and grasses. Several large squashes,
one weighing 135 lbs., are included
among  the  vegetables.
The exhibition got under way in
good shape Monday, commencing
with a monster parade, several miles
In length, in the morning, and con-
cmaing with tho skid road attractions late in the evening. The attendance broke all opening day records, despite the fact that there were
many   counter   attractions.
At the Coquitlam Hospital yesterday
afternoon Urs. Doherty and Sutherland performed a difficult operation

rrt was extracted and Wright has
