Lower  l-'rnsci'  Valley   League  Hold?
Annual   Meeting  and  Lays
Plans for Season.
The annual meeting of the Lower
Fraser Valley Lacrosse League was
held in the -McNeely Hall committee
. oom on Saturday evening. Officers
for the coming year were elected and
the prospects for the ser.son were discussed.
Delegates from the three teams
represented in the Hague last _year
were present though the East Delia
Shamrocks are the only team so far
to organize. In the absence of the
secretary, Ray Hutcherson was appointed to take the minutes of the
meeting until a new secretary was
Voting for officers resulted in Mr.
F. J. MacKenzie being elected honorary president; Mr. Geo. London,
honorary vice-president; Mr. R. Kittson, vice-president, arid Mr. Hugh i
McDonald, secretar>*"-treasurer.
Owing to the fact that there wa9
some doubt as to the intention of
the Ladner Beavers to re-organize,
a committee of Ladner boys was appointed to investigate the situation.
It was unanimously agreed to
adopt the constitution and rub--- of
the Pacific Coast Amateur Lacrosse
Association, and a committee comprising Messrs. J. Williamson, C. H.
Trim, R. Kittson and R. Hutcherson.
were appointed to revise these rules
and make amendments to meet the
requirements of tl*,e league
Hospilal Press Claims of That

The possibility of a fourth  team
from  Lulu  Island  was mooted  and
the drawing up of the schedule was
adjourned until Saturday, 19th inst.,
j when definite knowledge of the In-
| tentions of the Beavers and the Lulu
1 Island team will be furnished.
I     Despite  the poor outlook  of the
! last month everything now points to
I a most successful season.    The ad-
I vent of warmer weather has stirred
prize 1 up tj,e slumbering Beavers and they
are now actively making preparations
for again  entering the league.
An organization meeting of that
club was called for Thursday evening, and though there was a slight
possibility of their agreeing to refrain from playing, there was also
a general expression ot opinion that
the popular blue and white would
again be seen in the midst of, this
season's strife.
From present appearances all three
teams will be considerably weaker
than last year through loss of valuable players, but each team suffering almost equally, this should make
no material difference in the comparative strength  of the clubs.
It would be hard to forecast the
cup winners at this stage of the season, but Westham Island should
have the edge In the earlier games
on the other teams on account of
their superior condition. They have
just completed a strenuous football
campaign and the members of their
team will not have the same task
to get into good shape.

demand and a large
buyers characterized the regular
weekly market at New Westminster
011 Friday morning. Prices remained steady in all departments, the
presence of oollchans caught locally in the flsh section being the outstanding feature. EgKs opened at
35 cents per dozen but the large supply caused a subsequent drop to
30 cents, Duck eggs for hatching
purposes were offered at 75 cents
per dozen and a small supply of
goose eggs for hatching sold at 20
cents apiece. Butter remained
steady at 10 cents with no indicaTTon
of change. The fish department attracted attention, a splendid supply
ot isprlng salmon, sturgeon and
oollchans being offered. Notwithstanding the large supply no diminution of prices was noticed, oollchans
retailing at three pounds for 25
cents. The usual spring lines of
flower and vegetable plants for bedding purposes were catalogued with
good sales. Cabbages sold at 25
oenti per'bunch of two dozen, and
lomaloes at two plants for 25 cents
The ooultry section
piled, chickens meeting a ready sale
at from $12 to $14 per dozen. DuckB

what few were offered meeting ready
sale at 32 cents per pound. Vegetable produce remained steady, potatoes bringing from $8 to $12 per

Requesting financial assistance for
the equipment of their new hospital
building, a deputation from the Royal
Columbian Hospital waited 0:1 the
Delta Municipal Council at its meeting on Rr.tunlay afternoon. (ireat
Interesl was manifested by the reeve
and councillors In the plans for making this Institution one of the most
up-to-date of its cLass and the question of making a grant towards the
hospital funds was left for future
The delegation was composed of
the following members: Mr. J. J.
Johnston, chairman of the Hospital
Board; Alderman Kellington. of New-
Westminster, chairman of the finance committee; Alderman Jardlne
and Miss Scott, lady superintendent
at the hospital.
Mr. Johnston, in addressing the
council, mentioned the close connection of Delta and the neighboring
municipalities of Surrey and Langley with the City of New Westminster. He emphasized the fact that
these surrounding districts were dependent on the Royal Columbian
Hospital for the treatment of the
majority of their accident and serious cases requiring medical attention. He stated that with the completion of the proposed building this
hospital would be one of the finest
institutions ot its kind to be found
on the continent and worthy of the
support of the public. Every invention that was of any benefit to the
successful treatment of hospital
cases would be utilized. The Delta
had formerly sent many patients for
attention at the hospital, and ho
quoted statistics showing that a large
percentage of these were unable to
pay for their treatment. He asked
the members of the council to favorably consider their request for financial assistance.
Alderman Kellington, chairman of
the finance committee, dealt with the
financial aspect of the question.
The cost of erecting the new buildings would reach the sum of $230,-
000. Of this amount the city of
New Westminster had voted $130,-
000, while the provincial government had granted $100,000 towards
the project; $30,000 would be required for furnishings and equipment and it was planned to raise
this amount by subscription from the
neighboring municipalities and
larger corporations, such as the B. C.
E. R. and Fraser Mills. Burnaby
Council had voted the sum of $5,000,
a splendid example for other municipalities to follow. It would be
manifestly unfair to ask the citizens
of New Westminster to make any
further contributions after their
magnificent gift of $1,300,000 when
the surrounding districts would be
equally benefited. He asked Delta
municipality to bear its portion of
the expense.
Alderman Jardine emphasized the
fact that the institution was a district hospital not confined to New-
Westminster alone, and he considered each municipality would be only
doing its duty to bear its share ol
the expense of equipping the new
Miss Scott explained the plans of
the proposed building for the edification of the members of the council answering their questions in a
manner which showed she was thoroughly conversant with the different
Innovations of the new hospital.
Thnt  the  arrival  of spring  is  appreciated by the equine tribe is evidenced by the  numerous runaways

nature occurred on Thursday afternoon   when   a   team    driven    by    an

Another of New Westminster's Well

Final Summons.
(From Tho British Columbian.)
By the death of Mr. Malcolm McLeod, aged 69 years, at hts home,
332 Second street, Monday, New
Westminster has lost another of her
respected old timers. Mr. McLeod
has been suffering from an Illness
for the past year having undergone
one operation which, however, only
afforded temporary relief. For several months past he has been confined to his bed.
Mr. McLeod was a native of Nova
Scotia and about 33 years ago moved to Yale, B.C., later coming to
New Westminster and taking up his
residence at 332 Second street,
where he has since resided. Although not taking much active interest In the public affairs of this

To meet the increased demands
for more rapid passenger transportation and to give the farmers ot the
Fraser Valley every opportunity for
shipment of their produce, the B.C.
Electric Railway Company have .11-
ranged sweeping changes lu the lime
table of the Chilliwack line.
Two fast passenger trains will reduce the time between Chilliwack
and New Westminster to two hours
nnd thirty minutes, clipping twenty
minutes off the present schedule, ln
addition there will be the regular
local trains, four passenger trains
each way daily aud two milk express
and baggage specials.
These changes will increase the
operating  expense   of  the  line  con
Co-operative proposals featured
the meeting of the Delta Board o{
Trade, held iu the Municipal Hall
on Monday evening. A committee
was appointed to further investigate
and report some feasible line of action.
In view of the Important questions
to be discussed, quite a gathering ot
members attended.
A communication from Mr. K. J.
Burns assistant general freight agent
uf the Ureal Northern Railway, advising that the extensions at different sidings on the Port Guichon
branch suggested by the board had
been completed and that the question of better rates would immediately receive consideration.
The New Westminster Progressive
Association wrote in reference to improvement to tram service between
Steveston and New Westminster.
This matter was referred to the
transportation  committee.
A letter was received from- the
New Westminster District Publicity
Bureau, requesting statistics of production and the appointment of a
delegate to a meeting on May 2nd.
Mr. E. Hutcherson was appointed to
represent the board.
Mr. Sperling, general manager ot
the B. C. Electric Railway, wrote requesting information as to what purpose the proposed delegation re Bet-
tiers' rates wished to visit him. The
information had been supplied by the
secretary, but as no reply fixing a
date had been received the matter
was left for consideration at next
The secretary was instructed to
write to the postmaster-general's department and to the local member,
bringing to their notice the inadequacy of the remuneration for carrying mails awarded to Captain Brewster. Mr. Brewster carried double
the quantity of mail matter conveyed
by the Transfer for which he only
received sixty cents per day, while
the Transfer was paid eight dollars.
On a vote lt was decided to take
action towards securing a change iu
the time of the departure on her
evening trip of the New Delta.
The matter of securing the house
and lot adjoining the town hall site
came up for discussion, and it was
felt that everything that could possibly be done to this end had been

It was decided to approach the

The various aspectii of the marketing question and the best methods
of combating the wholesale meti
came up for discussion. Mr. E.
Hutcherson suggested the inauguration of a joint stock company of
ranchers each individual to subscribe
a certain amount and pool the stock.
Mr. John Oliver advised an organization to sell direct to the consumer.
Information in connection with the
establishment of a co-operative
creamery was given by Mr. I*. T. Calvert.
Mr. Ley land Hornby stated facts
in connection with the Inception of
the  Chilliwack  creamery.
A committee composed of Geo.
London, W. A. Kirkland. Chris.
Brown and B. HutcherBon were appointed to investigate and determine
the most satisfactory line of action.
It was pointed out during a discus-
jsion of street lighting that change!
were being made which would
remedy the defects.
Mr. A. de I*. Taylor wlshe3 to
draw the attention of the general
public to a clause in the postal regulations which forbids clerks from
opening mail bags consigned to another branch. It ls understood that
the refusal of th*e clerks at the Ladner office to deliver mail matter addressed to other local branch offices
has caused some feeling when they
are only carrying out their instructions.
The weather during the past week
haB been ideal for ranch Work. Seeding operations are in full swing
though some ranchers .having more
acreage to cultivate have not yet
completed ploughing. The end of
this month should see the larger portion of land to be planted in grain
seeded. Notwithstanding the backward season there Is every indication
of the usual bumper crops.
The resignation ot the Rev. C, R.
Blunden as pastor of the local Baptist church has be��n accepted with
much regret, and many expressions
of sympathy that the physical condition of Mrs. Blunden rendered this
step necessary.
Mr. Blunden has accepted a call
to become pastor of the Cedar Cottage Baptist church, Vancouver, and
will begin his ministry there on Sunday, May 4th. His farewell sermons
at Crescent Island and Ladner will
be preached on Sunday,  April 27th.
CAMBIE, Lulu Island, April 15.���
Al. a meeting of the Point Grey and
Richmond Board of Trade, in tho
Gordon block, Eburne, last night, a
resolution was passed favoring the
removal of the Eburne post office on
Sea Island to the Bridgeport subdivision on Lulu Island. The chief
argument In favor of such a change
is that the Camble district on Lulu
Island has, ln the last few year3,
Increased rapidly, whereas the Sea
Island population has remained practically stationary.
The Camble district is actively
(boosting for the Bridgeport location,
1 which would bring the post office
(almost a quarter mile nearer. On
Ithe other hand Sea Islanders would
Ibe compelled to walk the added dls-
Itance across tho Lulu Island bridge,
I thus making it inconvenient for
���them. It Is safe to say that there
will be quite a controversy before
the matter is settled.
The splendid weather of the past
week brought many visitors from
Vancouver and New Westminster in
automobiles. The roads are in excellent condition and a few atttoisM
were tempted to exceed the speed
limit, several being noticed travelling
through town at an excessive rate.
The early appointment of a police-
man should considerably lessen this
dangerous practice.

Creditors of Fraser River Tile Com*,
pany Make Proposition to Dominion Government.
(From The British Columbian.)
ln order to release the money retained as security by the Dominion
government and the money due from
the government for the November
and December work, the creditors of
the Fraser River Tile and Cement
Company, who held the contract for
the construction of the Steveston
Jetty in the name of the Sinclair
Construction Company, will sign an
agreement cancelling the debts of the
Sinclair Company. This agreement
will be forwarded to the Dominion
government as well as a proposition
that the creditors complete construction of the first unit of the jetty.
The government refused to pay
the Sinclair Construction Company
far the work which It did on the jetty
during the months of November and
December because the company was
unable to present a balance sheet
showing all debts to he paid. The
creditors plan to annul the debts and
secure tbls money which has been
retained as well as the bond given
by the Sinclair Company when the
contract was awarded.
Should the government consent to
their proposal the creditors expect to
commence work in the course of
two weeks. It is their hope that
by taking over the contract they may
be able to decrease the loss sustained when the Sinclair Company went
into liquidation.

Approximately Ope Half of Nicomen
Island Dyking Project Is Now
(From The British Columbian, i
Approximately one half of the
eight miles of dyking on Nicomen
is completed and today Mr. Bonson,
Dewdney district iroad superintendent, and'Mr. Napier, assistant provincial public works engineer, have
gone up to the Island to witness
the installation of one of the four
flood gates of the dyke. The whole
work Is being rushed forward with
all celerity in order to have as much
of the dyke completed as possible before the high water comes. This
work is being done by Messrs. Marshall, Plumber & Co., of Vancouver,
the contract having been let to them
in December for $85,000.
This dyke will run along the south
and east sides of the island and will
mean the reclamation of a very large
area of valuable farming lands, now
too swampy for that purpose. In
order to make this dyke, about 250,-
000 cubic yards of material will require to be moved; 100,000 feet of
lumber will be used in culverts and
flood gates and about 88 acres of

Continuing, Dr. Young said:
"We want the right class of im- '
migrants iu this country. We want
the pure dear water of the race,
and 1 am sure that, as things are, we
get them. Only the very best comes
out to this great Western territory.
The others stay to feed the cities of
the East and the Prairies on the
great open stretches that lie between
this Province and the settled areas
of the other side. That is the class
of people we want to bring here, and
in that connection 1 would like to
sound a warning note.
"We are very optimistic out here.
We know what we have. But do not
live too much on capital. Go ahead
with the development of the country, get the assets back of you, and
then the banks will not interfere
with your notes. There is a great
development coming on the coast,
probably not as much as we anticipate, in the opening of the Panama
Canal. Do not anticipate that too
much. We are living today on
"The province is practically out of
debt, but do not forget that we
have paid the debts out of our assets.
There is a limit to that. It may not
occur In our generation, but we have
a heritage to administer. We are in
the responsible position of administering the affairs of a young state
and we cannot afford to spend our
capital. We must conserve it. for
we must some day live on the interest. It may not be in our time,
but In the administration of this
heritage we must prepare for the future.
Nation in Itself.
"British Columbia is going to be a
great big nation in itself. We have
the natural resources. On Vancouver Island a'one we have coal and
iron enough to build up an empire.
It was the combination of coal and
iron that made Great Britain. If
|we go and develop these resources
on Vancouver Island we can hand
to our sons and our sons' sons the
greatest empire on earth. We also
have our fisheries and our timber.
In any one of them there is an asset
sufficient to make a nation, but we
must not squander it.
"During the next flve years there
will be a wonderful development ln
agriculture In this country, but that
development will never follow in the
wake of a campaign in 33-foot lots.
You must develop the country first.
and when you have established lhe
agricultural industry in the country,
you can buy the 33-foot lots if you
want to. You will never make a
country in the way you have been
going during the past two or three
years in Vancouver and Victoria. I
will not say anything about Vancouver, but I must congratulate Victorians upon keeping their heads in
regard to the real estate honm."

address as reported in the Colonist
will be  read  with interest.
It was In responding to the toast
of the "Empire" that the chief Justice found his opportunity. He prefaced his remarks concerning the
navy by a few felicitous statements
about tbe Empire, and how he discovered it.
"When I was made aware that. I
���would be asked to reply to this
toast," he said, "I betook myself to
that great home of information, tho
Encyclopedia Brlttanlca, but on
looking up the word empire I found
myself referred to Great Britain, and
that was all. That was somewhat
distressing to me for I simply had
to address myself to the task, so I
retired Into the recollection of my
school books and there I found what
I sought, or at all events, something
of it." He then traced the history
of   the   British   race   from   earliest
tion, or if you like, a world question. , It affects all mankind Hal
well as ourselves.
"Is there an emergency? For my
part I am content to accept the advice of the fact from the Imperial
government. The politics of that
government matter not at all, nor do
the politics of the government at
Ottawa. It satisfies me that the
Imperial government has advised
the Canadian government that there
Is an mergency. I do not need,
however, to be satisfied in that way.
The mere fact that the Imperial
government has Increased Its appropriation for the navy so enormously
for the present year over all previous years is proof enough for me
that in the opinion of the imperial
government there is a grave emergency.

The defendant is accused, Judge
Hardin poll 'ed out, of entering into
a conspiracy to aid and abet the insolvent firi.i of W. E. Schricker &
Co. in receiving deposits.
The state must prove three points;
first, the knowledge by the defendant Furth that Schricker & Co. and
the partners therein were insolvent;
second, that Furth entered into a
conspiracy with E. W. Andrews, D.
Kelleher and R. V. Aukeny to aid
Schricker in keeping open and receiving deposits; third, that acts of
aiding and abetting Schricker were
performed by the defendant or his
co-conspirators. In the opening argument for the state, Corrigan pointed out from the testimony wherein
he believes these points have been
proved. A verdict is expected today.

the two years ending March 31,
1913, 2.500,000 cases of salmon were
packed in this state, the largest

eggs 40,000,000 more than the average annual take, an increase made
possible by the building of new
hatcheries, making additions to already established plants and the
construction of nursery and rearing
ponds. Out of the last, two years'
appropriations a great quantity of
equipment, utensils and material has
been purchased which will be available for enlarged work during the
