In a-manner scarcely paralleled in
Canada the people of British Columbia have expressed their confidence In
tho McBride government. So far as
can be judged ai presenting writing
(Friday) to a House of 42 members
the country has returned 36 straight
Conservatives and one Independent
Conservative (Mr. Duncan, in Oomojj).
I The remaining Ave seats are divided
between the Liberals and Socialists.
j The Liberals are Mr. J. Jardine in
| Esquimau, Mr, H. C. Brewster In
Alberni and Mr. M. Eagleson in
Llllooet. The successful Socialists are

entire Conservative ticket was elected
in Vancouver and Victoria. The country apparently decided In favor of
local option, but this is not deflnately
known yet.
In Delia.
In Delta riding Mr. Frank MacKenzle won a decisive victory over
Mr. John Oliver, the past member
for the riding and lhe leader of the
Opposition. At present writing all
the returns are not available yet, but
it is conceded that Mr MacKenzle's
majority will be In the neighborhood
of 200 votes. Mr. Oliver's majority
nt the election three years ago wus
69. Although complete returns are
not available at the time of going to
I press it Is gem-rally --conceded that
the vote was much larger than that
of the last election. Great interest
was taken in the election  in Delta by
| not only residents In the riding but by
the province at large, this being the
seal so long associated with the
leader of the Opposition. At Ladner
there was a large crowd to hear the
ri turns, -which were received in the
Opera House'. The Conservative member-elect arrived in the afternoon and
] left for Xew Westminster at 6 o'clock,
arriving  there  In   time   to   receive   a
j great reception    at    the Conservative
I mass   meeting   in   the   Opera   House
I there.
Mr.   Oliver spent  the  day at  South
, Westminster returning home after
close of the polls.
The returns In Delia as received by
Friday noon are as follows:

"There seems to be no wear out to
the Delia soil," says Mr. E. S.
Brown, of the Slough road, and Mr.
Brown should be an authority on the
fertility of Delta soil for h.e has been
a resiilvnt of the Delta for nearly | country
half a century, living
strip of land for 47 years.
"I have been cultivating the land
for a g.-i\il many years,' he sai'd,
"and 1 can get as good a crop oft
it now as at any tim," during tho
years  I  have  worked   it.      The soil   is
some  elaj; it  would  prove  his  contention that the Hals would be a valuable
agricultural area.      He little  dreamed
that it would turn out to be as valuable   as   it   has,   for  had   he   realized
its  great possibilities  he  would   have i
taken up two or three thousand acres, I
which could have easily been acquired  instead  of  the  one  section,     In-,
deed   he   ultimately   disposed   of   eon-!
slderable of the section until   in.  inn.

The fishing Industry in British Columbia for the year 190S yielded a
return of $6,466,038, according to
the 42nd annual report of the department of marine and fisheries, just
issued. This production was greater
than that of the previous year by
$342,116. Hut as the total value of
1907 was $S80,425 below that of the
year 1906, the year li)0S is still half
a million dollars behind 11106, ami
three and one half millions behind
ithe record year of 1905, in which
British Columbia produced a greater
; value, uf iisb than Xeiva Scotia and
stood easily al the- head of tbe list
of fish producing provinces of Canada.
in district No. 1 (Southern B. CM
there Is a decrease of $676,018 in all
kinds of salmon, while halibut shows
an Increase of $148,831. Other kinds'
of fish show small increases mostly, i
Sturgeon, however, nearly doubled
the total of 1907, though still far be-
hiiiel the years when this fishery was
first carried on for commercial purpose's. There Is a total decrease., in
the district, in the value of all kinds,
of $643,149 which is moiie than made
up hy the other two districts.
District Xo. 2, comprising [he northern part of the province, is by far
the best fish producing section. Apart
from its great salmon fishery, the.
rich halibut grounds of British Columbia lie within easy distance of this
district, and large ns the halibut Industry Is at present, greater production is looked for when the Grand
Trunk Pacific reaches the western
Salmon fishing in ihe northern district, is greater than that of 1907 by
$366,384. Halibut value, advanced
$11,550 and that of herring $12,3sn.
making a total value of all kinds
$1110,177 greater than that of 1907.
Vancouver Island, district Xo. 2.
and a portion of the mainland adjacent thereto yielded $485,184 more
than in 19H7. Herring, chiefly in
Xanaimo district, shows an increase
in value of $2-13,047, while, salmon of
al! kinds show" an advance1 in value
of   522",174.
It is worthy of note, stales the report, that British Columbia con-
tributed no less than four-fifths the
total value of halibut landed in
Canada  during  the year.
