resume her ferry traffic, having un-

pile driver started work on Tuesday
leinoving some of the old piles
around the landing, and driving in
others where required, and on the
completion of this work the Scanlon
will start running.
The boat is to be fitted inside with
corrals so as to carry sheep or other
live stock. Arrangements have yet
to be completed with the government
whereby five or six trips are to be
made dally, which ought to insure a
most satisfactory ferry service.
The floor space of the boat is
about ten square feet less than that
of the scow, but the frequent number of trips will more than compensate in this direction.

B. C. Premier Acquiesces.
OTTAWA, May 27.��� Despite the
great heat which prevailed, the
members of the House of Commons,
throughout three sittings yesterday
kept pounding away on the 'details
of the C. N. R. resolutions, which
are now 'in committee. The talk
throughout was confined to less than
a dozen members. On the opposition
side there wero six or eight members who have made a study of the
resolutions and who kept Premier
Borden and Hon. Arthur Meighen
busy answering questions and replying to criticisms.
. Personal Liability.
Probably the most interesting
discussion arose in the afternoon
wben tbe question of the extent to
which Mackenzie and Mann are pi r-
sonally liable was under discussion.
Mr. Borden said that they had been
called on to give security for twen-
Agricultural   Association   Makes   a
Grant Towards Securing Delta
Exhibits at Victoria.
Business relating to the coming
exhibition was taken up at the meeting of Delta Agricultural Association
on Saturday evening and the advisability of making a district exhibition
at Victoria for the Dominion Exhibition was seriously considered. After
these matters had been thoroughly
discussed pro and con it was decided
that it was too late to take the matter up as too many varieties were required to be shown and a great number of the products are not usually

The good weather again brought
out a lecord crowd* at the New West-
minster market on" Friday, May 21,
and the farmers found a good de-
n.a..d for practicably everything that
they had to sell.
Potatoes took a sudden rise, advancing from $1 tbe sack to $1.50
retail. The wholesale price advanced from $20 to in some cases
$30 the ton. The best grade of potatoes came from Ladner and Chilliwack the Cloverdale shipment wholesaling at $5 the ton less. I

fifty dollars towards the expense of
taking down individual exhibits to
be shown In the name of the producer, and the prize, if any awarded,
to be paid to the exhibitor. This
will enable many splendid exhibits to,
be grown and later shown at the
local exhibition, the better varieties
being finally shown at the Dominion
Exhibition at Victoria.
The farmers will be asked to cooperate with the society in this matter, and it is hoped that a large
number of exhibits will be taken
down and that the Delta farmers
will carry off not a few of the honor's.
Mr. Morley, who has had a long
and successful experience at the Vie-
week's quotations of 35 to 40 cents
retail and 30 to 35 cents wholesale.
In the poultry section the same
prices as last week prevailed and a
fairly good supply was on hand.
In the vegetable department young
radishes, green onions and spinnadh
brought 10 cents for three pounds.
Rhubarb dropped to 10 cents the
bunch of about three pounds.
In the meat section, pork was
slightly below last week's supply,

Early in the afternoon large numbers of automobiles, tally-hos und
other  vehicles  lined  the  course.
The first race was the Foxcatch-
ers' handicap steeplechase, a distance of two miles, which meant
twice round the course. There were
three entries, Radnor, Glen Lyon
and Muskrat, of whom Radnor ranked  as  favorite  with  Muskrat  as  a

In spite of the threatening weather Empire Day, the first holiday of
the summer season, was generally,
observed by the Ladner people'as a
day of merrymaking and picnics,
and very few people allowed the
weather to .interfere with their
plans. The majority of the Delta
folk spent the day at Cloverdale
where sports of every description,
were participated in.
At the tournament held there the
Ladner Gun Club proved victorious
winning the silver cup with 88
points. Teams were entered from
New Westminster, Murrayville,
Cloverdale and Ladner, each team
consisting ot five shooters. Westminster and Cloverdale tied for see*
ond place With 79 points, and Murrayville third with 70. In the 25-

It is thought that had he been up

Hon. Mr. Qraham, namely, that the

the hands of a receiver. The proposition was absurd that Mackenzie &. Mann should undertake to
make this road a I uccess and leave |
to the Dominion the power to take it
away from them if it was a success.

that would mean the steady march

Sir Wilfrid Laurier again inquired
as to whether the rates on the C.

this agreement supersede the agreement between the C. N. R. and the
government of British Columbia in
regard to the rates?
Mr. Borden replied that it would.
No other policy was po.slble. The
Canadian parliament would have to
have control. The government had
tiie right to insist and did lns'st
that the rates should be under the
control  of the railway commission.

Will Reach.
The Associated Board of Trade of
the Lower Mainland of British Columbia was constituted Friday afternoon at a meeting ot delegates
representing six boards of trade and
a constitution adopted and rules of
order for the annual meeting to be
held on June 26 approved. The
six boards of trade represented were
Mission, by President A. W- Yere-
chere; Port Hammond, by President
J. M. Dale; Maple Ridge, by Mr. G.
O. Buchanan; New Westminster, by
Mr, C. H. Stuart-Wade and President W. G. McQuarrie; Richmond
and Point Gray, by Secretary J. W.
Jack, and North Vancouver, by
President A. G. Perry. The first
general meeting will be held in the
rooms of the New Westminster board
ot trade, and by resolution the
chairman of yesterday's meeting,
and the secretary are made convenors of the general meeting to be
held on June 26.
Constitution Adopted.
The first business before yesterday's meeting was the adoption of
the constitution, and on clause one,
providing for jurisdiction, the committee that drafted the Instrument
was turned down ln its recommendation, the northern boundary being
changed to include Powell River
and Newport, and eastward to Lytton
only, the original clause providing
for the Inclusion of the whole British Columbia coast from the Yukon
boundary to Blaine.
President   McQuarrie,  of  the local   board   of  trade,   led   the   fight
against  the   inclusion   of   so   much
territory, and argued that the association  should   be  confined   to  the
Fraser  Valley,  saying  he  was  acting  on  Instructions  from  the  New
Westminster board.    Mr. Verechere
of Mission  agreed  that the oiglnal
lines were pluced too far northward,
but ho would not exclude Vancouver
and North Vancouver.   Chairman G.
O.  Buchanan, of Maple Ridge, said
surely   Vancouver   and   North   Vancouver   should   be   Included,   as   in
no case could any one or any two
boards secure a majority in the association. Vancouver, he argued, had
nothing to  gain   by affiliation  with
the association in that regard.    On
motion, the boundaries were placed
so as to  include Newport,     Powell
River and Lytton, and all points between these places, the international
boundary and the Gulf of Georgia.
Business nt Annual  Meeting.
By resolution  that clause in the
constitution providing that no business can he taken up at the annual
meeting unless notice of it has been
in tho hands of the secretary for 20
(lays  prior  thereto,   will   not  apply
to  the  first  general  meeting  to  be
held next month, so that any business  may   be     brought     up  at  this
meeting,  winch   any  hoard  of trade
may  Instruct  its  delegates to  bring
forward,     Apparently there will be
plenty of business for the associated
hoards to handle next month beside
the election of officers.
With \oles of thanks for the
chairman -and secretary for their
services, the meeting yesterday adjourned.
Twelve Boards.
From reports made by Secretary
('. H. Stuart-Wade and other delegates at yesterday's meeting, it Is
evident that about twelve boards of
trade win aflTuate with the main
body, but one hoard, that at Delta.

the Delta board was read yesterday, declining to take part in the
Organization, but President Hutcherson was present ns a visitor and

Ladner Wins Wilson Cup at Cloverdale���Price, of New Westminster, First Individual.
CLOEVRDALE, B. C, May 26.���
With a wind that blew obliquely
across the traps from the left and
lifted the left-angleB and straightaways like skyrockets, caught the
serrations on the right-angle bird
and depressed lt, there was some
gruesome shooting at Cloverdale on
Empire Day. Ladner won the J. J.
Wilson cup for the team shoot by
virtue of the good work, of Oliver
and Wilson, while New Westminster
and Cloverdale tied for second place
leaving the Murrayville colts third
with only three points below the second place teams. Price, of New
Westminster, Oliver and Wilson of
Ladner, tied for first place in the
individual shoot, with Kelly of
Cloverdale, second, and O'Neill of
Murrayville, third. S. Boothroyd
of Cloverdale, and Maiden of New
Westminster tied for fourth honors.
In the shoot-off of the individual
match on the mlss-and-out system,
Oliver dropped his tirst bird and
was out of it, though he beefed on
tbe referee's decision, and wanted
to continue shooting, but the verdict of several spectators sustained
the referee and Oliver had to quit.
Wilson and Price shot prettily for a
couple of birds more and then Wilson missed the same kind of a bird
that got Oliver's goat, and he was
out of it, leaving Price the winner
of the individual match.
New Westminster led off in the
team shoot and bad her best shots
been present she should have won
the Wilson cup easily. There were
but three of the best club shots
there and only Price was able to
do good work. Green and Maiden
fell down, the high wind bothering
them, and Ross and Freeman were
just good hearted boys who are trying to learn how to shoot and went
along to fill up the team in the
absence of the men who should have
been there. Price was the real hero
of the day. He led the New Westminster team, tied for the individual
championship and then won the
-hoot-off for that honor. It is curious to note that In the individual
match the color-named boys���
Green, Brown and White���all made
the same score. As there was no
prize for second in the team shoot,
there was no shoot-off Between
Cloverdale and New Westminster.
Following are the scores for the
Team Shoot.

Sir Richard McBride, extolled their
deeds and told of the debt of gratitude owing to these trail blazers
of the past.
Notable among the guests were
three of the eight surviving members
of the detachment of Royal Engineers, 150 strong, who first landed
on the si'e of the capital of British
Columbia and gave it a place ln the
history of the province. These are:
Mr. George Turner, assistant Engineer of the Department of Public
Works In this city, Mr. Philip Jack-
man, of Chilliwack, and Mr. Sam
Archer. Mr. L. F. Bonson, the
fourth member, whom it was expected would be present, was not well
enough to attend, to the great regret
of all.
At this gathering, a feeling which
bas been growing for some time
crystallized in the expression of a
hope that the Native Sons would undertake the project of erecting a permanent memorial to the Engineers
while yet a few of them survive to
realize the regard in which they are
held. The suggestion was advanced
by Grand Chief Factor J. J. Johnston, and was emphatically endorsed by Sir Richard McBride and other

to become law under the operation

its third reading In the House of

the bishops of the four Welsh dio-
ocoses will cease to be members of
House cf Lords; the present ecclesiastical law will cease to exist as law;

new dairy barn on the dairy farm of I jury in the case against John Kong,
Shannon Bros., at Cloverdale, is I the Chinese boy charged with the
proving quite an attraction to visitors to the town and many autoists
stop at the farm to inspect what is
undoubtedly one of the finest equipped dairy barns in the Dominion of
Canada, if not on the American
Located on the brow of the hill,
about half a mile from the main
portion of tbe town, this barn with
Its long rows of windows, resembles
more a huge pavilion or summer hot
house than barn. The structure is
buiit on a concrete base which rises
about six feet above the ground, the
sides of the barn proper containing
one long row of glass ventilators.
The interior of the barn is lined
throughout the "V" joint and the
floors are of cement. Water is supplied to the cows by means of a
patent trough which fills automatically, assuring clear running water
all the time. The water is supplied
from an artesian well on the farm.
An electric milking machine with
a capacity of 62 cows, that number
of stalls having been fitted up, does
all the milking. The milk goes into
covered milk containers fitted in such
a manner that it is impossible (or
the milk to become contaminated.
The contents of the containers are
dumped Into a cooling and bottle filling machine and the bottles are automatically sealed.
These bottles are previously washed hy a patent washing machine and
every precaution is taken to have all
foreign  substance removed.
The cleanliness maintained ln
both the barn and milk room Is most
praiseworthy. In the opinion of
everyone who has visited this up-to-
date dairy farm, the aome of perfection has been reached in the
handling of milk.

yesterday afternoon, brought in a
verdict of manslaughter, for which"
the maximum sentence may be life
Imprisonment. The prisoner was
remanded until the end of the assizes for sentence.
The jury was a long time in coming to an agreement, the point at
issue being as to whether there was
sufficient evidence of provocation to
justify a verdict of manslaughter or
whether the verdict should be murder.
Mr. Justice Gregory iu his charge

LONDON, May _..���By a vote of
351 to iii, a majority of 77, the
House of Commons yesterday afternoon pria-ied the Home Rule Bill. The
end of the hard-fought struggle came
quite suddenly, the Unionists refusing to debate the bill without further iuiorniatiuu as to the government's intentions ln regard to the
proposed amending measure.
Premier Asquith lifted a corner
of the veil, but though Mr. Andrew
Bonar Law, leader of tbe opposition,
admitted that the Premier's words
were conciliatory, he hastened to add
that Mr. Asquith had not told them
anything. To discuss the third reading under the circumstances would,
he said, be futile and ridiculous.
He added: "Let the curtain ring
down on this contemptible farce. It
Is only the end of an act and not of
the play. The government can carry
tbe bill through parliament, but the
concluding act of the drama will be
the country, where an appeal to the

and dance given by the Woman's
