At Preliminary Hearing Case Is Dis-
missed But May Be Tried Again
at Next Assizes.
Clinton Goudy, son of E. Goudy,
a Delta farmer, was charged before
Stipendiary Magistrate J. Stilwell
Clute, last Monday, at New Westminster, with wilfully setting
fire to a barn belonging to Henry
).. Morgan, East Delta, containing
over 200 tons of hay which belonged
in George R. Scott and Robert Scott,
on the morning of Sept. 11.
Mr. W. G. McQuarrie appeared for
the prosecution and Mr. S. S. Taylor, K.C., appeared  for the defence.
According to the prosecution, the
laml on which the barn waB situated
gan, Previous to this E. Goudy,
miller of the accused had been a
icnant of the property on a five
years' lease. At the expiration of
the lease Goudy had refused to give
up possession, claiming he had a
verbal agreement with Morgan for a
renewal. Morgan took proceedings
against Goudy to evict him and he
was ordered to give up possession.
On the Scotts leasing the land,
Goudy moved two of the small buildings on to the road, ln one of which
be resided. According to the evidence of George R. Scott and his
hired man, the accused was seen going to thc large barn on the morning of Sept. 11, between 6 and 7,
and that about 9:30 the barn broke
out in flames and was completely destroyed. Tho accused was one of the
first to be seen at the fire.
For the defence, the accused and
bis father went Into the box and
swore that the accused could not
possibly have been at the barn between 6 and 7 on the morning of
Sept. 11th, being employed nearly a mile away at the time, nor until
after the fire. E. Goudy's hired man
and his housekeeper also gave evidence to this effect. Several farmers also bore testimony to the effect
that the hay was harvested ln a wet
r-nnditlon. and that it was possible
for the fire to be caused by spontaneous  combustion.
At the conclusion of the evidence
the magistrate dismissed the case.
Mr. McQuarrie, the prosecuting attorney later made an application under Section G88 of the Criminal Code
requiring the magistrate to bind the
prosecutor over to prefer an indictment against the accused at the next
assizes,   which   was  granted.     This

These were sold for from $5 to $41

Hampshires and Shropshires were the
more readily disposed of and secured
the highest prices. One Hampshire,

Aid to Provinces.
Brisk Bidding at First Sale of Ewe*
and Rams Under Government
All of the provinces have now
Signed agreements with the Dominion government by which they will
receive the subsidy voted last session
by parliament. When the new administration came Into office it was
felt that a broad policy for the betterment of agriculture In Canada
through co-operation with the provincial governments should be adopted.
It was felt that nothing in this direction could be properly done until a
general survey of the agricultural
ponditions In Canada had been made,
i To make this survey, and to report
on a general policy, C. C. James, formerly deputy minister of agriculture
for Ontario, a man of undoubted

and with a deep knowledge and experience which peculiarly fits him
for such work, was appointed commissioner. He is at present engaged '
on preparing his report, and It will
be ready by the opening of parliament.
Immediate Assistance.
However, as Mr. James' report was
not ready last session, it was decided j
to give Immediate assistance to agrt-1
culture by voting the sum of $500,-;
000 to this cause by way of a grant1
to the provincial governments on a1
population basis. The grant was to i
be expended for the cause of agricul-'
ture, according to a plan approved
by the Minister of Agriculture. New

VICTORIA, Oct. 9.���The first of
the sheep sales promoted by the live
stock branch of the Dominion Stock
Breeders' Association, under the auspices of the Dominion government,
and advertised In last week's Delta
Times, took place here on Tuesday.
There was a large attendance and
bidding was brisk.
The 220 long wool and down grade
ewes averaged just under $9.50 each,
the highest price being given by Mr.
Dougan and Mr. Todd, who paid
$13.50 apiece for two pens of short
wools. Mr. M. Carlin was a large
buyer, taking no less than seven
pens, and Mr. A. R. Spalding, of Pender Island, and Mr. Clark each secured five pens. Thirty-six rams altogether were put up and fetched
$596.50, or an average of nearly $17
apiece. The top price for South-
downs was the $25 given by Mr.
Hadwen on behalf of the Vancouver
Island Flockmasters' Association.
Shropshires, taken altogether, made
the best prices, Mr. Douglas paying
$31 for a one-year-old ram, but the
best price of the afternoon was made
by an Oxford Down, for which Mr.
Hadwen, again on behalf of the Vancouver Island Flockmasters' Association, paid $100, in spite of the fact
that Us earmark number was lost.
Altogether, Messrs. Maynard & Sons,
the auctioneers, report a very satisfactory sale, and the animals were
distributed among buyer3 from many
different points���the islands. Duncan, Nanaimo, Parksville, Ladner
and Port Guichon.
On October 10th, at the fair

Richmond Council Passes Resolution
Calling on B. C. E. R. to Improve
CAMBIE, Richmond, Oct. 10���The
Municipal Council, meeting yesterday afternoon, decided to support*
the deputation of ratepayers of
Steveston and Richmond, calling
upon the British Columbia Electric
Railway for a reduction of fares on
their Richmond lines and an Improvement of their service in Richmond. Mr. P. Falkner, spokesman
of the delegation, dealt with the
present condition of affairs at some
length, emphasizing the fact that
there had hardly been a single Improvement id the municipal transportation system since the electric railway took it over seven years ago.
After much favorable discussion til.
following resolution, introduced by
Councillor Miller and seconded by
Councillor Shepherd, was put by
Reeve Bridge and carried unanimously:
"That the Reeve and council are tn
hearty accord with the petition of a
number of ratepayers for a reduction of fares and better services to
points on Lulu Island and thit tbey
accompany a committee of the petitioners In interviewing Mr. Sperling,
manager of the B. C. E. R. Company,
in support of the petition."
Financial Report Shows Satisfactory
CAMBIE, Richmond, Oct. 9.���Satisfactory reports were made at the
annual meeting of the Richmond Agricultural and Industrial Association
this evening. It was found that the
treasury was in a very sound condition, and that from a financial standpoint the 1912 fair was the most successful of the long series which have
been held on Lulu Island.
By a unanimous vote the association decided to hold an exhibition
in the fall of 1913.
Reeve William Bridge was elected
honorary president. A. E. McKay,
last year's president, was again
placed in the office. Among other
officers elected were first vice-president, Ezra May; secretary-treasurer,

chosen from among Lulu and Sea
Island farmers.

throughout Delta, where both Mr.
McCallan and the deceased lady were
well known and highly esteemed.

a week ago last Saturday, and early
the following week It was thought
advisable for her to go to the General
Hospital, Vancouver. She appeared

treatment, but suffering a relapse*
an operation was performed, from
the effects of which, combined with
her general weakness, slie did not
rally, and passed away about two
o'clock  on  Tuesday morning.
On Thursday afternoon the funeral
took place from Mr. J. McCallan's
residence at Port Guichon to Boundary Bay cemetery. Flags were hung
half mast on several of the buildings
in Ladner and district, aud the presence of-about 60 rigs In the funeral

feeling of respect for the deceased
and of sympathy with the bereaved
husband and family.
The late Mrs. McCallan, being a
Presbyterian, Rev. J. J. Hastie, of
St. Andrew's, Ladner, officiated at
the service usual on so sad an occasion.
Tbe floral tributes were beautiful
and numerous, coming from all parts
of Delta, New Westminster and other
partB, where the deceased had many
friends and relatives.
The late Mrs. McCallan was about
35 years old, and was a daughter of
Mr. Robert Bradner, formerly of New
Westminster. She was born in Ontario, and when about 18 years of
age, married Mr. James McCallan, of
Port Guichon. Besides her husband
she leaves a family of seven young
children. There are now living besides her parents the following three
sisters and three brothers: Mrs.
James Livingston, of Lulu Island,
Mrs. Eggson, of Clyde, Alberta; Mrs.
Knott, of Clyde; Mr. Norman Bradner, of New Westminster; Mr. Carmen Bradner, and Mr. Gerald Bradner,  all of Alberta.
The funeral was very largely attended and among the relatives present were: Messrs. James, Norman
and John McCallan, Mr. Norman
Bradner, Mrs. James Livingston and
Mrs. H. Innes.
Mr. James McCallan desires to express his deep appreciation of the
general sympathy extended to him in
his bereavement as shown by the
presence of so many friends at the
funeral and the numerous beautiful
floral tributes.

A. Nelson, Hanford Lewis, J. Roger-
son, C. Davis, William Stokes and

The valley will pack 850.000 boxes,
but the crop bas been cut down materially by the development of a peculiar dry rot that begins at the core

Laying Contest Has Been of Considerable Educational Value to
VICTORIA,  Oct.    10.���Eggs   produced in the egg-laying contest now
being   conducted  at   Vancouver,   are
^^^^^^^^^^^^__________________.     .selling  at   80  cents  a  dozen   to   the
the   eastern    manufacturers   are   at | consumer, according to the statement
present supplying, with the handicap
of a freight charge of from $20 to
$30 per wagon. This freight would
be saved by the western company, as
well as the import duties and large
freight rates from the United States.
It is proposed to obtain the raw
material, if necessary, from Australia,
Japan, Siberia and other parts where
gum wood, oak and iron bark are
grown in abundance. This means a
'difference of from 25 to 35 per cent.
as against the cost of the hickory
used by the eastern concerns.
Some of the leading business men
and others of the city have become
financially interested in the company,
among others being Mr. John Rela,
Mr. W. R. Gilley, Mr. C. C. Dunn,
Mr. A. E. White, Mr. E. H. Savage,
Mr. J. R. Duncan and Mr. Jas. Armstrong. The directors include Mr.
J. Reid ad Mr. Leon J. Ladner, and
other well-known and experienced
busines men of New Westminstei,
Vancouver and other parts.
Having regard to these facts, there
appears a bright and prosperous ru-
ture before the Canadian Wheel ana
Wagon Company which will soon employ a large and increasing numoer
of workmen in their new factory.
The land secured is one of the best
manufacturing sites ln the province,
being especially suitable for the erection of a factory and sheds to be
used in the making of wagons and
wheels, and the transportation facili-
t'*"h are exceptionally favorable.
ot Mr. J. R. Terry, of the department
of agriculture. This is a special
price, due to the fact that eggs are
infertile and are collected four times
a week, but it seems likely that all
eggs of the "strictly fresh" variety
will cost more than ever this winter.
One large firm in the neighborhood
of this city is already asking, and getting,  (JO  cents a dozen.
The egg-laying contest at Vancouver, although conducted under some
difficulties, has proved of great educative value and has taken, to a considerable extent, the place of the poultry demonstration farm which the
provincial department of agriculture
hopes to establish in the future. A
similar contest will be held at Victoria next year at the exhibition
ground, under the supervision of government officials. It is believed
that better results can be secured
here, not only because of the absence
of blasting operations in the neighborhood, but also because of the
valuable experience which has been
acquired this year at Vancouver.
Dead Man's Body Clothed in a C.P.R.
Conductor's   Uniform.
STEVESTON, Oct. 10.���-A good
deal of mystery surrounds the find
ing of the body of an unknown man
at Steveston last week. This has
been considerably deepened by recent
developments. When discovered by
an Indian hunter, the remains were
lying in some rushes. They were
clothed in C.P.R. uniform nnd had
upon them private papers bearing the
name of Conductor Bryan.
It has now been discovered that
whereas the clothing was sodden
with water, the papers had not been
wetted. They were written with indelible pencil. The writing was
quite fresh and bore no trace of
having been in the water. This fact
clearly indicates that they were
placed in the pockets of the clothing after the body had been removed
from the stream.
Who the unfortunate man was;
bow he nis't his end: why he was
clothed iu 111101 her man's uniform;
who placed the papers in the pockets,
and for what reason, are Important
questions which await solution.
Several theories hnve been advanced regarding the identity of the
dead man, One is that a recently
escaped convict from Burnaby prison
may have stolen the conductor's uniform, waylaid the unknown mnn, and
after having murdered him, exchanged clothes aud inter returned
to place the papers in the pocket as
a   blind.

Ottawa Experimental Farm Issues a
Bulletin  Warning  Farmers to
Take Precautions.
VICTORIA, Oct. 10.���Potato canker is the latest danger with which
farmers are threatened, according to
bulletins issued by the Ottawa experimental farm, and forwarded to
the provincial department of agriculture in order that a warning may be
issued here. The disease is not yet
known to have reached British Columbia, but is liable to acquire a
domicile in the province any day unless precautions are taken.
Potato canker reached Canada last
year, when, owing to the shortness
of the crop there were large importations from Europe. Some of imported tubers were used as seed, with
the result that the disease has been
introduced. The Dominion Government has issued an* order prohibiting
the importation of potatoes from Europe. Newfoundland and the islands
of St. Pierre and Miquelon. Mr. W.
E. Scott, deputy minister of agriculture, is having prepared r. number
of lantern slides Illustrating the disease. The slides are to be used in
lectures to the farmers' institutes
throughout the province.
Potato canker, which is known
scientifically as chrysoplilyctis endo-
biota, has been spreading in Europe
for the, past thirteen years. It is
of so virulent a nature that not only
will it destroy the whole crop where
Tt has gained a footing, but it will
poison the land so that no potatoes
can be grown on it for five or six
years without being infected.

Ship Consignment for Christinas
NELSON, Oct. 9.���Definite decision to semi n carload of fruit on con-
Slgnment to Covent Garden, London.
has 1 een reached by the directors of
the Kootenay Fruit Growers' Union.
I'lu car will he made up on October
20, IUJ<J Will reach England in ample
time for the Christmas market, Cox's
Orange Pippins, Yellow Newtona and
Northern  Spys will be the varieties
It is probable that a second car,
made up of boxes consigned to individuals in various parts of England
by friends in this country, will he
sent across the Atlantic to reach the
Old   Country  before  Christmas.
"A number of orders have already
been received by the Union," said
Raymond T. Hicks, manager, "and it
la anticipated that there will be little
difficulty in making up a carload.
The cost per box will be about $3.
and will include all charges for fruit
and for transportation and delivery
to the individuals in England to
whom the boxes are addressed. About
$1 of this charge will be represented
by transportation expenses."
