The fifth semi-annual concert Of
the Delta Glee Club, umler the able
leadership of Mr. B. T. Calvert, took

the McNeely Hull. There was a. large
and appreciative audience and the
programme was one of the best ever
listened tn in Ladner, The; soloists
were nil geieid, and the ace-nmpanlste,
Miss Leila Kirkland, deserved special
praise fur the- admirable- manner in
which she- I'illed her very responsible
and   difficult   position.
The conductor, Mr. E. Tl. Calvert,
is a mnn of whom nny town or city
might be justly proud and to his enthusiasm anil faithfulness Is due almost entirely the success of the club
and the excellence of the concert. He
has by reaseen eif Several years' association with the musloal people of
the Delta win the eemfldence and respect of all.
Of the glees, perhaps "The Bells of
St. Michael's Tower" was the- best
cotnributliin. but according to taste
and    temperament,    iiirtercr-t   people
preferred different selections ,\ It was
a matter of regret that the male quar-

At the last meeting of the municipal
council, Dr. King, the hue medical
health officer, presented the following report:
1 have the pleasure of submitting
my report as medical health officer
for the year ending February 1, 1912.
The following is a list of the contagious diseases whii h had to be dealt
with during the year j__t ended. ,
Diphtheria, 2 08 ae; no deaflia.
scarlet fever. 14 oases; 1 death, small
pox, (i cases; no deaths. Typhoid
fever, 6 cases; 2 deaths. Whooping
cough, 10 cases; 1 eleath. Tuberculosis  I consumption),  6 cases;  1  death.
The- diphtheria cases were duly
quarantined and the dwellings afterwards disinfected.
As you will note, there was quite
a wide-spread epidemic of scarlet
fever���14 cases in all. Every effort
was made by strictly enforcing the
Quarantine Law. and disinfecting
dwellings, schools, etc., to Mmlt its
I in March 22nel. 1911. a cas�� of
small pox was discovered In the municipality, which was at once reported
by wire to the Provincial Board of
Health, and also to the Local Board
of Health. Every effort was made to
stamp it out, by quarantine and vac-
e inating of all those who had been
in contact in any way with the infected perseins or dwellings.
All parts of the municipality were
visited and suspects examined, and
where any doubt existed, they were
quarantined. I am sure it is a matter
for congratulation tei know that only
five cases developed at that time. The
smallest number In aiy municipality
In the province where small pox made
Its appearance. On December 21st,
1911, a case of small pox was found
in Chinatown. Owing to the over-
iTowding existing in that area, it was
found necessary, as a matter of precaution, to quarantine as suspects the
whole town for 16 days. No other
cases appearing at the. expiration of
that period, quarantine over the town
was raised, but was continued over
the infected house until January 29th.
19-12, when the period of contagion
being passed lt was considered safe
to raise the quarantine. The dwelling
and effects were thoroughly fumigated
and the perseins In contact with the
disease disinfected before being allowed to come in contact with the
public. J

Transportation Problems in the Delta
District Debated���Steps Taken to
Secure Railway Facilities
That the time .has really arrived for
definite action to be taken in order
to provide better transportation service between the Delta and adjacent
cities of Vancouver and New Westminster was the impression received
from, the large attendance and enthusiasm evinced at the regular
monthly meeting of thc Delta Board
of Trade,  which was held  on  Monday

pices of the Ladner Methodist church
on Tins.lay evening was ,i very pleasant and profitable event. There were

the most appreciated Items was a dia-
login- entitled "The Ladles' Aiel Meel

vaccinated, or had the elWe-use, pre-
vented its spreading. This result,
when we- consider the> highly contagious nature of the disease, and often
Its fatal termination is something for
which  we should  be-  thankful.

evening at the McNeely Hall. In the
[absence of President Davie, Mr. E. T.
���'iivert, vice-president, took the chair.
The presence of a strong deoul itlon
consisting of Mr. Dune-���, chairman
of transportation committee, and Mr.
T. S. Annandale, chairman of agricultural committee, and Mr. L. M.
Richardson, manager of New Westminster branch of the Royal Bank,
and formerly, of Ladner, from New
Westminster Board of Trade, helped
c-einsid-erably to*focuss the attention of
the Board upon the all-important subject of transportation.*
The  routine  business  was  disposed
of   with   the    utmost   dispatch,    after
which   the   chairman    welcomed    thj?
j deputation   and   they, were   voted   a
j seat in the meeting.
Fa eh _of the visitors then briefly
addressed the Board, explaining the
purpose of the visit as an effort to
get a better, understanding of the
wishes of the Delta Board of Trade,
so that the New Westminster Board
of Trade could the meire intelligently
co-operate as far as possible to secure
them. Of course, they were after the
business of the Delta and they were
heart and soul with any move that
would hetsp the business of British
Columbia generally. They recognized
that by helping the Delta they were
helping themselves and they respectfully submitted that steps be taken
to form a joint committee of representative members of the Delta and
New Westminster boards of trade to--
gether with others of the Vancouver
Board  of Trade, if thought desirable.
They earnestly desired there '
should be a very' free and frank discussion of the question from the Delta
viewpoint, so that they could get to
know the feeling of the Board on the
The friendly overtures of the visit- I
ing deputation were acknowledged by
Captain Brewster, chairman of transportation committee, and Mr. T. Lad- I
ner. The former, opening the discussion by remarking he saw no reason
why the Delta should not secure in
the n'ear future better service either
to Vancouver or New Westimnster,
which ever was best. Mr. Ladner,
who has taken a lively interest in
the question for many years, was
strongly of opinion that efforts should
be put forth immediately to obtain
a quick service with both places. This
was not a question of a day or a
year, but for all time. They were
within IS miles of Vanceiuver. which
offered   them   a   splendid   market   feir
'their products am!  he looked forward
ito   seeing   Vancouver,   Coquitlam   and
| New   Westminster  one- great  city,  and
I he was more than ever convinced that
a   belt   line-   tak-lng   in   these   districts
with     ths     Delta    was    the    feasible
soheme.    lie-  would  llke to ask  New
VVestirinster  Hoard  of Trade to assist

to  be in  touch  with  both  Vancouver
and New Westminster. Fx-lleeve

what roulel be got e Ury tirst. namely,
a line from Scott lto.ul em the Chilliwack line, the 1.1'. miles necessary
ceiuld lie laid ve-ry cheaply. Secure
this a.nel that could help to incerase
the trade between Delta and the cities
which at present was not enough to
warrant a bridge.
Mr. H.J. Hutcherson reminded the
company that the Delta raised nn*-
tenth Of the total produce of British
Columbia, and yet they were worse
off than the-y were. 2 5 years ago in
the  matter of transportation.
Mr. Lanning was in favor of getting
closer   to   New    Westminster,    but   he
was not prepared to do anything that
would in any way  mar the  prospects
of  getting   a   bridge   later.        If   New-
Westminster   were     so     anxious    for
trade, why was the SjS.  Transfer laid
off two or three months every  yeas'?
Councillor  C.    lirown   challenged   the!
meeting   to   show   how   a   tram   line-
would    ke,-p    a     bridge   back.        Neit
knowing   of   the    movements   of    the
Board   of  Trade   he  had. made   a  few
enquiries   on   his   own   ace-ount   with '
the officials of the B.C.E.'K. and had
been   told   that   the   1.14   miles   from
Scott   Road   to  Ladner  could   be   laid
down   for  $ ISO,000.        Mr.   Annandale
agreed that efforts should be made to
g-et  that  line.    He  was in  a   position
to say that there were three directors j
of   the  B.C.E.R.   with  a  sum   of   15,
million dollars to be expended  in new |
buildings and  lines  in  British t'olum- ,
bia now on their way out from Eng- J
land, and thought they should be approached   in   the   interests   of    Delta.
Mr. D. B. Grant thought now  was the.
time  to  stritfe  tor  a  bridge. '
Messrs.  McDiarmid,   H.   J.   Wilson.'
Dmbree and Wm.  Kirkland also took
part in the discussion. j
The   chairman   suggested   action   be
taken in accordance with the sugges- j
tion    of   the   deputation     from     New-
Ultimately it was agreed that
Messrs. 11. J. Hutcherson, T. Ladner and C. Brown be a committee
to meti representatives of the municipal councils and boards of trade of
Vancouver. South Vancouver, Pblnt
Grey, New Westminster, Richmond,
and Surrey, to me-et and eeinfer in
the   near   future.
The meeting closed with the usual
courtesies between the Hoard uf Trade
and  the- deputation.
Laci-oHsc Loonw Big for Another Season���Officers  l-'.livt-'il���Date of
Ball   hived.
The  Beaver   Lacrosse   Club   has  re-
e organized    for    another    season,    and
every'hing  points  to  a  most successful  year.
One great cause for satisfaction is
the fact that arrangements have been
made with Mr. Norman M-dOallum,
whereby the club will have- the use
of a lieid right in town for practice
purposes. One of the drawbacks of
the past has been the long distance
from the exhibition grounds, which
discouraged the boys from turning out
to practice. That particular difficulty
will be obv)ated this year and the
trouble of Insufficient practice, which
was very apparent last year, should
be eliminated.
Membership tickets are now being
sold and a healthy spirit of enthusiasm prevails.
The colors of past seasons will be
retained by the club; and the annual
ball will be held on March is. The
committee in charge of arrangements
is Messrs. J. Williamson. Ft. Wilson,
G.   Grauer,  A.   Scott,  H.   Brown.
The election of officers for the ensuing year resulted as follows: Hon.
president, X. McCallum; president,

States the  Blaine Journal:
The report is current that the
transmission line ot the British Columbia Electric Company is being
constructed toward Lynden from Sumas und that the poles are now within two miles of that town. Coupled
with this report, a Vancouver business
man stated In Bellingham Wednesday thut this company would soon
apply for a franchise for a pole line
in the city of Bellingham, with a view
of entering that field.
These reports, coupled with the
well known fact that a man named
Cooke some time applied for a franchise in Lynden for electric lights
and power and the further fact that
Cooke ha= taken options on a power
site near Maple Falls, as well as a
site for a sub-station in Bellingham,
have revived the belief that the British Columbia corporation is backing
the Nooksack Valley traction line. It
is also well known that Cooke has
been working with J. E. Morrison,
manager of the Nooksack project.

The  Provincial    governments    must
not  be  encouraged   to  seize  upon  "tiie
promised   Federal  grants  for ngr'cul-
turul  purpose's as an excuse to reduce
thc Provincial appropriations in aid nf
agriculture.       Agriculture    will    .not
benefit   if   tihe   money   placed   in   one
pocket is taken out of tihe other.    The
situation   throughout   Canada   is  just
th.s.    The  cost of  living  steadily  Increases iarg-'ly    because    the farming

Tom Tomklns. the son of a rich
pinker, having no oc-asion to work,
went abroad. He landed at Naples
nnd took n train for Rome.
The railway coaches over there are
built   in   compartments,   and   in   a
compartment  with  Tom   was  a  lady
traveling with her ruiiid.   The mistress
appeared to be a hlshhorn tfanip, and
her maid treated her with unbounded
reverence,    The two  conversed  in  a
foreign language, though Tom, not being   a   linguist   himself,   couldn't   tell
whether it wns Italian or French,   It
might have been Latin for all be knew,
Tom tried to get some Information
j from the conductor, but failed, and tlic
lady kindly came to his assistance In
i broken  English.    This started a con-
I venation between lier nnd bim, during
I wlil.-ii ii came out that she was tbe
Princess  Bobbelonl and tbat be was
j Mr.  Thomas Tom kins of the  United
States.   Furthermore, Tom let out during the riele to Ite.iiip that his father
was   mi   American   millionaire.     M
didn't  tell it In so many  words,  bul
managed to get it in so that be might
���bow   something  to   make   him   se-em
I worthy   of   the   notice   of   an   Italian
And here it should bo explained thnt
princes  and  princesses   In   Italy  don't
I necessarily belong to the royal family.
j Italy   formerly   was   broken   up   into
Ismail   trnf-'is  or  principalities.    They
are now united In a kingdom, but their
1 princely families retain their titles.
I.  Before  reaching home the  Princess
| Bobbelonl became very gracious to Si
j giior Tomklns, as she called bim, nnd
I invited  him  to  visit  her  In  her villa
on the outskirts of Itome.    But lie was
: not to call for a week, since the place
( had licjn closed and needed to be open-
j ed.    She took his address aud prom-
; Isc-d   to   send  him   hers   later.    From
I Something she said Tom gathered that
| She desired time to ask the American
minister something about him.
Tbe  week  passed, and Tom  waited
Impatiently nt his hotel without receiving any word from the princess.   But a
couple of days later a liveried servant
!called and presented a little note with
:a crest on  it containing an  invitation
, for o o'clock English tea at her villa.
j Tom   presented   himself   at   the   hour
named and funnel the lady in a sumptuous home.
"Ah.  Sighor Tomkins,"  she said  in
| charming broken English. "I am glad
; to see yon.    1 confess that having met
I you as a stranger I thought it prudent
to make inquiries about you.    And  I
i am happy to announce that they have
I resulted satisfactorily.    If there were
titles in your country you would be at
1 least a baron."
"Thank  you  very much," said Tom
I In bud Italian.
"How quickly you are picking up our
I language," replied the princess.   "You
will soon apeak It like a native."
Tom   drank   tea   with   the   princess,
spending a  delightful  hour with Jier;
j then she dismissed him. saying:
"I will be happy to hnve you meet
some of my friends. Let me see���this
evening there ls a court ball; tomorrow
j I dine with the Duchess of C'hevriui;
Thursday I am free. Have you any
engagement for that evening?"
Tom said he had. but he would break
ft for the inestimable privilege of
meeting the princess' friends. Ills
evening was free, but with true American instincts he didn't propose to
cheapen himself.
On the proposed evening Slgnor
Tomklns presented himself at the
princess' villa and was introduced to
several princes, an English duchess,
who was found useful as an Interpreter, and other magnates They were
nil very civil to Teim. considering that
he was a titleless American, and he
was delighted at mingling for the flrst
time in his life with a real aristocracy,
Card tables were set. and the princess
proposed bridge whist Tom was honored by being placed at tbe hostess'
table and especially so by having her
for a partner. One of the gentlemen
proposed to innko the points .*. francs,
but the princess would not consent 'o
more than a franc.
Tom did not wonder that Bhe objected to a sizable stake, for she proved s
very poor player Sbe and Tom began to lose with the firs*t game nnd

China, Jan. 21st.-
The Foreign Mission s Investigation Committee of
tbe International
Bible Students Association spent
several days ln
Hong Kong, Can
~ ton and vicinity.
. For efficiency they
divided, some giving more attention
to one nnd others
to auotber phase of missionary Interest. Pastor Ittissell's address to the
Chinese iu Hong Kong in their tine
City Hall Auditorium wus both helpful
and encouraging. He directed special
attention to the words of St. Pupl, applicable to humanity tu general aud ut
the present time specially to tbe Chinese: "Tbe whole creutiou grouneth
and trnvailefh in pain together until

tbe sous of <iod."���1-oniuns viit. __.
China's war experiences in recent
yeurs have been severe trials, particularly tu a people pt liieir temperament
���peace-preferring, gentle, courteous to
each other and to foreigners. He had
been told that their courtesy of manner arose, not from love and sympathy, but from law and custom centuries old. He could not Judge tbe
benrt. but had sincerely wished that
some of the favored race of so-called
Christendom possessed in a larger degree" some of the admirable traits of
the Chinese���their respectful demeanor,
their courtesy, civility and energy.
The God of All Grace.
It shnll not be my mission, said Pastor Russell, to urge you to become
identified wltb any sects of Christendom, nor to recommend to you any of
their creeds. Nevertheless, in all of
those creeds there is more or less of
the most wonderful truth tbat ever
came to the ears of humanity; but.
alas! in a darker period it became so
mixed with human tradition as to be
today dishonoring to God and offensive
to tbe intelligence of many. 1 can
readily see reasons why you have not
been more Influenced by Christianity.
Very properly your beads and hearts
refused adherence and worship to One
whom you were told bad foreordained
tbe eternal torment of your ancestors
and all mankind except a favored few.
I may never again bave the opportunity of addressing you; let me. therefore, toll you uow of another Christianity (of which probably you nave
never before beurdi from the same Bible used by ibe missionaries here and
confessed by Mil to be (Jod's Message,
but a very different Message from that
which my brethren here confess.
"Waiting For the Sons of God."
My text declares that tbe relief for
the groaning creation waits for the
manifestation of Ihe sons of (lod.
Jesus, as the pre-eminent Son of (iod.
died for our sins, and ascended to tbe
right   ntitiel   nt   Divine   Mniesty.   where
lie is waitluy; mui meantime tne
groaning creation must wait also for
the same tiling���for tho manifestation
of Un- sons of (iod. Here Is n matter
which seems to have been for a time
hidden under the rubbish of the Dark
Ages-the fact thai (Ind neit only fore-
ordained .lesus. the great Sou of (Iod.
tei be the world's Messiah to deliver
them from sdn und death, but that He
foreordained also the selection of a
Special class from amongst mankind to
be the Redeemer's nssoe-iales and joint
iieirs in His Kingdom,
Surely all will admit with me thai
no Rod of any people has ever manifested such n love ami interest In bis
i-rwtfures as n:i�� the "��<>fl eif the Bible
the (bul eif Christianity. It is the- Love
ot (ind Which I'onstrains UK���draws us
mot the threat of eternal torture, which
hits no foundation In tbe Blblei. And
ills exceeding great nnd 'irerlott* promises work iii our hearts both to will
und to do nis good pleasure,
It is my understanding of the Se-rip-
tltt'es that the time for milking our
"culling nnd election sure'' to this
Kingdom e-luss Is now very short. It
therefore behooves all who desire this
glorious relationship with Messiah to
"give all dlli-zeni-e' ami io ������run with
