Mr, li. (1. Walker, chairman of the
joint harbor committee from Burnaby, South Vancouver, Point Grey
and Richmond Boards of Trade, has
received a wire rrom Ottawa to the
effect that the Harbor Commission
Rill for the
River   has   passed   its  third   reading

strip that of Switzerland, Ln con
eluding after speaking on the fruit
growing possibilities, he gave the
following returns for 1911 from export trade: Minerals, $73,811,816;
lumber, approximately $28,000,000;
fisheries, about $11,000,000, and agriculture,  $21.11110,000.
ln replying to the toast of "The
Delte Hoard of Trade" Mr. W. J. Lanning, the secretary, gave lhe history
of the organization from its inception
pointing nut the numerous improvements which they had emphasized in
their short career since March 4th,
1910.    He expressed the aim of the

Stuart Wade, in replying, complimented the board on the production,
but urged iheui to Issue further
pamphlets of personal letters to follow up the advertising which they
have already done. In support of
his theory that advertising is a good
thing for a community, he mentioned
several eastern cities whose development had been occasioned by publicity.
Mr. W. Hornby'proposed the toast
to "Sister Boards of Trade," and Mr.
Ed Goulet, ln the course of a humor
ous reply,  bespoke the opinion  thai
a  board   of   trade   was  the   thernio- i
meter of the business activity  in  a
district.    He also wished to impress ���
the Delta residents that the interests
Of  New  Westminster   were   akin   to I
those of the Delta and that it was!
to their  mutual  advantage  to  work
in co-operation. .
Mr. R.  Kittson, one of the young
men  from  East Delta, in  proposing;
the toast on  "Improved Transporta-!
tion," favored the ferry scheme, but'
more  particularly  dwelt on   the  ne-'
cesslty    of    an    electric   line   which ',
should  tap  the  whole  Delta  district
and   carry  the   produce  to   the   city1
markets.       ln   replying,   Mr.   B.   W, i
Fisher also  looked  forward   to   the
day   of   Improved   transportation   fa-,
eilities when the ferry service would j
be in operation, the Great Northern j
service   would   be   improved   and   an
electric  line  would  be  carrying  the I
produce to market.    He was heartily
In  favor  of the co-operation  which
had    existe'd   between   the   various;
farmers' organizations and the Board
of Trade during the past year.
In proposing a toast to "The Agricultural Industry," Mr. A. Davies
upheld that Delta land was cheap
at the present prices, $300 per acre.
In proof of his statement he instanced the Island of Jersey, where
land is selling at from $1,000 to $1,-|
600 per acre, and the farmers raise
cattle for a living. Mr. A. D. Paterson, in replying, also believed that
Delta land was worth the price which I
it commanded. He also strongly
presented the need of better trans-
portatlon facilities in order that the!
produce might be placed on the mar-j
ket. In order to keep this market |
open he advised the formation of al
farmers' association similar to that |
which had been organized in Wash-1
ington. In his opinion, then and'
then alone could the question of
competition with the prices of Amer-1
lean produce be satisfactorily dealt
Mr. J. Inkster pointed out that thei
draining of the municipality was al-j
ready having its effect as the farmers were now harvesting one month I
earlier than was the case In the
early days. He prognosticated that
ln the future the farmers would harvest still two weeks earlier when the
pumps were installed to keep the
water in the draining ditches at. a
low level.
"The waterB of British Columbia
are teeming with all manner of fish j
from a sprat to a whale," was the
comment of Cept. J. W. Brewster,
tn proposing the toast to the "Fishing Industry."
Mr.   P.  S.  Faulkner,  representing
the   Richmond   Progressive   Association, in reply, paid a tribute to the
government   for   the   splendid    and
wise  work  which  they  had  accomplished in the past years towards the
preservation of the fishing industry. -
In  concluding he stated that there
was an Indian tradition in the eariyl
days which  was  authority   for   the,
statement   that   during   the   salmon ;
run it was possible to  walk across j
the Fraser on the flsh.
"With care we will almost be able
to supply the world with food," stated Mr. H. J. Hutcherson, in proposing a toast to "The Pacific Coast
and its Possibilities." He enlarged
on the marAillous tracts of forest
yet untouched by tiie logger, the
magnitude of the present lumber Industry In the province, the summei
resort facilities at Boundary Bay and
the vast agricultural possibilities yet
Mr. K. Myers, of the New Westminster Progressive Association
made the new trade relations contingent on the opening of the Panama canal his chief point, and enlarging on that showed that the grain
growers of the prairies and the middle west would undoubtedly export
their produce by way ot the Pacific
Coast on account of tho shorter distance. He also believed that the
lumber Industry would find a splendid market opened up in Eastern
Canada and the United States when
the canal was completed and transportation charges thereby lessened.
As to New Westminster, he believed
that the interests of Delta and that
city were linked so that the prosperity of one would mean the prosperity
of the other.
Messrs. W. A. Kirkland, G. Dennis
and T, Ladner, whose names were
coupled with the toast to "The Old
Timers," brushed the cobwebs from
reminlscenses which had not been recalled for many a day. They told
of the days when Delta was a land
of bullrushes and marsh areas considered by many to be worthless and
when the water was so muddy that
it was both "food and drink." Mr.
Ladner, who has travelled Europe,
stated that he believed the Delta
farm land to be equal to any of that
of Belgium. France or Holland, ln
concluding, he stated that tbe Delta
even excelled Kent, England, as a
hop growing country.
"Our Guests" was proposed by Mr.
T. Ladner, and ln reply, Rev. J. J.
Ilr.stie rend  the following poem:
"The Jewel  of   B.C."

Office Assured.
NEW WESTMINSTER, Feb, 19,������
As a result of complaints to the Provincial Governmenl regarding aon-
gestlon at the local land registry
office, Messrs. l.ee and Agar report-
id to the executive of ihe Progressive
Association that they had reoelyc'l
assurances that steps would be taken
to improve conditions. A two-storey
building will be erected extending
from the south wall of the office
as il is at present to the line of
the court house. Another storey
will be added to the present structure. Tlle stuff will be largely increased nnd every effort made to
jkeep" the business up-to-date.
Objection was taken to the car
service between this city and Steves-
ton. lt was pointed out that it cost
4i cents to travel from New Westminster to Steveston via the B. C.
Electric Hallway, and 25 cents rrom
Vancouver to Steveston. From New
Westminster to Eburne Junction the
charge was 16 cents and from Vancouver to Eburne 10 cents. Delays
at Eburne were also objected to. A
committee composed or Messrs. W.
J. Kerr, W. L. Darling and Secretary
Kenneth Myers was appointed to
take up these matters with the railway company.
It was decided to issue 10.000
booklets describing the advantages of
New Westminster and the Fraser
Valley for distribution, the cost being

At   Annual   Mectiu;   of   Delia   Game
Protective Association���Of-
flcers Elected;
On account of the recent heavy
rainfall a portion of the Ladner-
Cloverdale Road near Enderby's Hilll
became dislodged on Sunday and
tons of earth and logs were swept
down onto the flats below. This
portion of the road had been built
over an old ravine with a cribwork
retaining wall on the outside and
gravel filling between the hillside
and the retaining wall. Evidently
the rain had washed away the foundation of the wall and the water
rushing down the ravine swept away
the structure carrying tons of gravel
and the cribwork into the flat lands
The road is not only the main
highway between Ladner and Cloverdale, but. is also a portion of the
New Westmlhster-Ladner road. The
council are taking steps to make temporary repairs so that traffic will
not be sndpShded for any length of
Roman Is the First Trawler on the
Coast to Adopt Oil
The Bteam trawler Roman, owned by
the Columbia Cold Storage, haB arrived from Esquimau, where she had
been fitted up with oil burners.
This Is the first vessel on the
coast engaged In ths halibut trade
which has been equipped with the
oil burning apparatus and Its introduction will undoubtedly be
watched with interest by the owners
of similar vessels operating out of
British Columbia ports. The Romnn
made a trial trip to Seattle before
steaming up the Fraser, and her
captain, H. FrederlckBon, reports
everything satisfactory and appears
well pleased with the new Installation.
A move which the directors who
.were present at the annual meeting
of the Delta Game Protective Association, held last Wednesday afternoon in the municipal hall, thought
would be in the right direction toward the preservation of the pheas-
nn,ts in the Delta was advocated.
Through Mr. W. A. Kirkland und
i iirls Brown the association will ask
the government to lengthen the close
season in the Delta so that it. will
be lawful to shoot pheasants for one
month only. It was understood that
In other municipalities where the
country was heavily wooded that
this shortening of the season would
be a hardship on the sportsmen, but
the directors thought that in the
Delta with so much open land, too
many birds were being killed otf in
the season. They will not ask the
government to make the season
shorter over the whole of the
lower mainland, but rather for a
special law In the Delta.
The following ofricers for 1913
were elected: President, Mr. W. A.
Kirkland; vice-president, Mr. Thomas
Hume; secretary, Mr. A. deR. Taylor; directors, Mr. C. Brown, East
Delta; Mr. L. Hornby, the western
half of East Delta; Mr. J. McKee,
Ladner and district; Mr. J. Guichon,
Port Guichon and Gulfside districts;
Mr. J. B. Burr, Crescent Island. The
president and vice-president will
have the whole municipality under
their jurisdiction-. At least ten days
before the season opens a meeting
of the directors will be called in order
to appoint game wardens to police
the various districts in the municipality and see that no one is permitted to shoot game witnout a license.
At present the association bave
seven brace of pheasants which are
to be distributed through the municipality as soon as the weather permits. One brace will be allotted to
each of the directors to be loosened
in their several districts and a brace
to both the president and vice-president.
On a motion by Mr. A. deR. Taylor,
seconded by Mr. C. Brown, a vote of
confidence was unanimously adopted
by the members of the association
in behalf of the police magistrate
who has so ably seconded their er-
forts to prevent infraction or tne
game laws it^, the municipality. Mr.
McKee, who was present, stated that
he was pleased indeed that the people appreciated  his servicas.
In the secretary's report he s'nreci
that about $50 had been expended
this year in feeding the pheasants
during the winter season. The secretary was vot'-d the usual*! sum of
$50 In remuneration Tor his services
during the year, and the bylaws of
the association will be again printed
in the "British Columbian" of
New Westminster and a Vancouver
paper, in order that tho people of
those cities may know the game laws
prevailing in Delta. This scheme,
according to the secretary's report,
had proven very -UCceoaful
