LADNER, B. 0. THURSDAY, JULY 30, 1914.
$1.00 A YEAR
Threshing    in    Delta   Will
About First Week of
Farmers report that the crops are
about two weeks ahead this year and
in fine condition. Threshing will
begin about the first week in August
as the fields are turning yellow even
now. The wheat at Boundary Ray
seems to be ripening in patches, some
being a real golden while next to It
will look green.
Wheat and oats on Mr. Davis'
farm at the Gulf is very nearly ripe,
also on Mr. Wm. Mason's farm, and
will be amongst the first cut.
Roy  Pearson  Has His  Collar Bone
Fractured in Auto Accident
at Ladner.
The Delta is experiencing automobile accidents as well as Vancouver.
Mr. Roy Pearson and his brother, of
New Westminster, with three other
occupants, ran into the ditch just
back of Chinatown about 11 p. m. on
Saturday last. The accident was
probably due to the unfamillarity of
the driver with the road which
makes a very sharp turn, and if
traveling at any rate of speed the
turn could not be seen in time. Mr.
Roy Pearson was the only one of the
Sack sewers will again be in de-j party   suffering   injuries.     He   was
thrown out and knocked unconscious. Dr. King was'called and after an examination found the collar
bone to be fractured. The young
man was later removed to his home.
The car was not damaged in any
mand this year, and will earn as high
as $6 a day. The farmers have not
mven out what will be paid the
threshers per hour this year, but it
is thought It will not be less than
���it her years.

July 24, at New Westminster. Early
apples sold from $1 to $1.50 per
box. It depended upon the quality
of the apple as to the price. Several of tbe farmers had their apples
packed in small poar boxes which
kept the price down. Tomatoes from
the Delta were perhaips the most
rapid seller on the whole market and
they went two pounds for 25 cents.

happened the force was not very
strong. After two hours of hard
fighting ail danger was over as the
fire was burning out. If the wind
had been in the direction of the
house and other buildings they
would probably have been burned.
The property belonged to Mrs. P.
Arthur and is rented by her son, Mr.
Fred Arthur. The barn contained 35
tons of new hay, a few -wagons and
harness sets, all of which was cov-
| ered by insurance. The manager of
the Mutual Fire Insurance Company
visited the scene of the fire on Tuesday morning and the claims were
satisfactorily settled.
It was rumored that a discharged
employee had threratened Mr. Arthur's property, but no evidence is
at hand to point to the barn having
been purposely set afire as it happened so late in the morning. This
is the third fire in two years. The
last is well remembered when all of

ers' Association Saturday morning
that that company had absorbed the
business of the George & Barker Salmon Packing Company, of Blaine,
Wash., which has canneries and extensive trap rights In the State of
Washington. Tho two associations
have been in close touch for years.
President Barker of tbe B. C. Packers is the Barker of the other association. Mr. George, who died recently, was a litelong friend of Mr.
Barker and was well known In British Columbia. His death made tills
absorption or amalgamation desirable for the protection oi mutual interests. ��
The George & Barker interests,
however, have been incorporated as
a subsidiary company and Aemilius
company this morning and the
wharf is to be ready within two
months. S. Doe, of Victoria, was
the successful tenderer, a large
number  of  bids  being submitted.
The dock proper will be 441 feet
long and 61 feet wide. It will be approached by a long pier 1700 feet
long. A trestle will be built on one
side for unloading the large consignments of steel which are now en
route from the Atlantic coast for the
Vancouver Island lines of the Canadian Northern Pacific. More than
14,000 tons of rails are on the way.
The wharf is designed with a view
of utilization later on for ferry slips,
and the transfer of car barges from
the mainland. The company will establish facilities later at Woodwards Landing, Lulu Island, for the
service across the gulf. Tracks will
be laid on the decy' for transhipping the steel.

B.  C.  Telephone  Company  Reduces
Charges From Forty to Sixty
Per Cent.
Reduction .n long distance telephone rates between adjacent exchanges has been put into effect by
the B. C. Telephone Company. This
does not apply between points far
apart, but to the shorter distances
only, the reduction ranging from 40
to 60 per cent.
Rates for telephoning are based on
a defnite standard, set by experts
who take all the conditions Into consideration. Under this principle,
the minimum rate Is 25 cents, which
applies to most of the exchanges of
the B. C. Telephone Company. Establishment of long distance telephone equipment is costly and the
minimum rate decided on is not
counted unreasonable. In adjacent
exchanges, however, where interests
are more mutual, the rate has been
thought high, hence the decrease.
In setting out the limits of a telephone   exchange,   the   company   always gives   consldeiation    to    local
conditions, but the boundary has to
Ibe placed somewhere and conditions
j arise which cannot be avoided. For
I instance, a subscriber living near the
I eastern limit o," the Cloverdale territory in the Fraser valley might be a
close neighbor of a subscriber living
I near   the   western   boundary   of   the
i Milner telephone district.    Although
j living close to each other, to reach
|the   other     by     telephone     talking
j would have to be done a long way
I round.    The Milner man would call
up his own exchange, and the route
would double back,  proceeding past
tho  wanted party to Cloverdale exchange and thence    again doubling.
In such cases 25 cents appeares high
to  the subscriber and   prevents  the
free use of the telephone, except In
VANCOUVER, July 29.���Track
has now been laid on more than 20
miles of track beyond Spillimacheen
on the Kootenay Central line south
from Golden, states Mr. J. G. Sullivan, chief engineer of C. P. R. western lines, now in the city. The official added that the company expected to have the entire line from
Golden to the junction point with
the Crow's Nest line near Fort
Steele ready for traffic this coming
Maple Ridge   Producers   Will Have
Marketing Agent With Headquarters in Vancouver.
PORT HANEY, July 27.���The
United Farmers, Ltd., of Maple Ridge
have decided to appoint a permanent salesman with headquarters In
Vancouver, who will handle tbe various products of this co-operative
concern and be on the ground ready
to do business direct with the wholesale or consumer in the Terminal
City. Mr. L. G. Rayner, secretary
of the Hammond Fruit Association,
is the likely appointee tor the position and will probably take up his
new duties next month.
The enormous strides made by this
concern, which Is operated by the
farmers themselves, is well instanced
in the report of Manager L. S. Carr
who states that an increase in turnover for last month of 69 per cent.
over that of the corresponding
month last year is noted.
I'e-lestrian    Twice    Knocked    Down,
Wants Cyclists to Keep to the
Left Hereafter.
Cyclists who have not a light on
their bicycles are requested by one
who has been knocked down twice
on the Slough road to kindly keep
to the left side to avoid accidents.
This rule, observed by all other
means of transportation, is often
overlooked by the owners of bicycles who manage to ride all over the
road, having collisions with pedestrians and other riders like themselves.
Only Twenty-One Per Cent. Is Subscribed���War Scare Is Blamed
for Public's Attitude.
LONDON, July 28.���Only twenty-
one per cent, of the Canadian Northern Railway $15,000,000 loan has
been taken up by the public. Commenting on its poor reception, "The
Daily News," says:
"Such an unsatisfactory result is
not to be wondered at. It is quite
true that the debentures possess
many attractions, their currency being for twenty years at the rate of
interest of four per cent., the price
of the issue 94, and unconditionally
guaranteed by the Canadian government. These would be great attractions in normal times, but times are
not normal. War is in the air and
that explains why the reception was
not warmer."
LONDON, July 28.���The Postmaster-General, Hon. Mr. Hobhouse,
slated in the House of Commons yesterday that the present rate of postage on British newspapers, magazines and trade journals, sent from
the United Kingdom to Canada,
would remain In force until December 81. He added that he hoped
shortly to be in a position to make
a statement as regards the conditions of the service after that date.
Italian     Aviator      With    Passenger
Traverses Monte Rosa  limine
15 217 Feet in  Height.
GENEVA, Switzerland. July 28 ���
The greatest Alpine flight with a
passenger on record was accomplished yesterday by the Italian aviator,
Aehillo Landini, who was accompanied by Dr. Lampugnani.
They left Novara, Italy, at 5 a.m.,
and traversed the Monte Rosa range,
15.217 feet In height. They landed
safely at Vlsh at 7:50 o'clock, thus
taking nearly three hours to cover a
straight 100 miles, but they lost
their way in the clouds and suffered
greatly from the cold.
The Swiss authorities gave an official reception in celebration of the

Sews   of   Outbreak    of   Hostilities
Greeted in Vienna With Wave
of Enthusiasm.
VIENNA, July 29.���It is with a
feeling of relief that the people in
the dual monarchy look forward to
the war with Servia, which was yesterday formally declared. Even certain knowledge that Russia would
intervene would not now cause Austria to hesitate a moment or alter
her course in the sligh'.est.
News of tbe formal declaration of
war ran through the city before
extra editions of the newspapers
could reach the v'.idors' hands and
was everywhere greeted with a spirit
which might be described as close to
Censorship strict.
Vienna is absolutely without news
of the movements of the troops,
which the papers are naturally forbidden to print. A sharp censorship
has been established over the press;
and all other means of communication. An immense but quiet crowd
which constantly increased in numbers assembled before the war ministry. Cheers greeted the appearance of military officers and the
ministry officials.
Official Statement.
Tiie evening papers published the
following inspired statement:
"In well informed circles the view
is held that so far as Sir Edward
Grey's proposal is to localize the
conflict between Austria-Hungary
and Servia, the former can declare
herself entirely agreed with Sir Edward Grey's remarks, but regarding
what lie has said concerning the
suppression of military operations,
affairs have proceeded much too far !
to allow anything to be done in "this |
Food Prices Soar.
VIENNA, July 29.���There was an
abnormal rise in the price of provisions yesterday, which caused great
indignation on the part of the public. Vegetables in many cases trebled in price.
Feeling ran so high that in many
instances stallkeepers in the markets were mobbed or assaulted and (
the police had to be called out to restore order. The authorities declare
that the sudden increase in the price
of provisions and vegetables is totally unwarranted.
A committee    appointed    to deal
with the    question   of   provisioning
the country sat yesterday to discuss
the regulation of prices in order   to
prevent the public being cheated. A
similar meeting was held in the Diet.
It was officially asserted that there
was    no    reason    for   apprehension
with regard to the food supplies.
Families of Reservists.
Official arrangements    bave been
'made to take care of families of re-
Isorvlsts called    to    the    colors.    In
I event a reservist is killed or reported missing an allowance of about 23
cents per day   for   each adult   nnd
12  1-2 cents a day for children will
! be continued for six months.
Germany Watches Russia.
BERLIN. July 28.���No confirmation hud been received up to a late
hour last evening either by tlle German Foreign Office or tiie Russian
Embassy of the mobilization of the
various army corps in Russia reported in yesterday's despatches to
A German official declared flatly
that any Russian mobilization
against Austria, partial or otherwise,
meant war. German mobilization
orders would tben, he said, immediately be issued and when these once
bad been launched there would be
no possibility of recalling them or
of Germany resting on her arms
while negotiations continued, as the
strategic necessities of war on her
two fronts would force Germany to
strike immediately and hard.
The opinion was expressed in well-
informed Russian circles last night,
however, that partial mobilization of
Russian troops along the Austrian
frontier was quite possible, as an answer to the Austrian declaration of
war on Servia.

Success in Retailing
An essential factor in achieving success in a retail business is ADVERTISING���telling the buyers of your
community  what  you  have for them.

a genius to be a success, but one must have an

Twenty Socialist mass meetings
last night In the workmen's eiuarter
were crowded to the doors and overflow meetings were held. A resolution was adopted denouncing "the
brutal policy of Austria" and demanding the Government to restrain
their war fury. The police were
massed around the meeting places
but the meetings were orderly.
Later the Socialists converged in
procession to the city, singing the
"Workmen's Marseillaise" and
shouting "down with war." Their

Government and people appear to be
quietly preparing for war. The
Government is simply awaiting tbe
decision of Russia. Troop trains
are ready and representatives of the
army are on duty in telegraph and

The average citizen lias read in
the newfpapers his general instructions concerning mobilization; he
long has had his orders instructing
him precisely when and where to report for service. Large posters on
the bulletin boards in the post offices, city halls and other public
buildings will apprise him of exactly
the hour when his instructions become effective.

���Bur Providence Has Decreed Otherwise,"   Pathetically   Declares
the Aged Emperor.
VIENNA, July 29.���A manifesto
tfcsued last night by the Emperor
F.a . is j ��� . ph, afl .' stating that it
bail " r.i b s tervent wish to dedicate bis declining years lo preserving the Empire from the burdens
and sacrifices of war, says:
-'Providence has decreed .-ther-
wise. The intrigues of a malevolent
opponent compel in defence of the
honor of my monarchy and for the
protection of its dignity und for the
security of its possessions to grasp
the sword, alter long years of
The manifesto!* refers to the Ingratitude of Servia for the support
the Emperor's ancestors afforded to
Servian independence; how Servia
for years has pursued a path of open
hostility tu Austria-Hungary; how
Austrian annexation of Bosnia,
which injured no Servian rights,
called forth in Servia outbreaks of
the bitterest hatred.
"My Government," continues the
Emperor, "then employed the handsome privileges of the stronger and
with extreme consideration and leniency only requested Servia to reduce
'her army to a peace footing and promise to tread the paths of peace and
of friendship."
Recalling that it was Austrian
forbearance two years ago that enabled Servla to reap the fruits of .he
struggle against Turkey, the Emperor says:
"Tlie hope that Servia would keep
its word has not been fulfilled; the
flame of its hatred for myself and
my home has blazed always higher.
The design to tear from us by force
inseparable portions of Austria-
Hungary lias been manifested with
exer-lessening disguise."
The manifesto then dwells on the
���'criminal propaganda which lias extended over the frontier, aiming at
the destruction of the foundations of
crder and loyalty in tbe southeastern part of the monarchy and the
leading astray of growing youth and
Inciting it to deeds of madness and
high treason.
It continues:
"A series of murderous attacks in
an organized and well carried out
conspiracy, whose fruitful success
wounded me and my loyal people to
the heart, forms tbe visible and
bloody track of those secret machinations which were operated direct ln
Declaring that a stop must be put
tp these intolerable provocations, the
honor and dignity of the Monarchy
protected and its political, military
and economic developments guarded
from continuous shocks, he says:
"In vain did my Government make
a last .attempt to induce Servia to
desist. Servia rejected the just and
moderate demands of my Government and refused to conform to the
obligations forming the national
foundations of peace in the life of
peoples and states. I must therefore proceed by force of arms to secure those Indispensable pledges
which alone can insure tranquility
to now states within, and lasting
peace without.
"in ibis solemn hour, I am fully

the worst year of insect pests that
we have had for a decade," said Mr.

making a total of 4776 packages."
'All this fruit was sent back to
the United Stales, whence it came.
This is a heavy toll, it is true, but
Iwhat can we do but condemn infected fruit? We cannot take tlle

(From the British Columbian)
Tuesday, July  28
Sockeyes wero running much better in the lower river last night and
the average reported ls some thirty
to the boat, the St. ilungo getting
3,000 fifth this morning.
The Glen Rose cannery collecting
boat had not returned from up-river
late this afternoon, which Manager
Monk declared to be an indication of
a large catch and many fish, for if
the catch was not large the collecting boat would have beeu down
early, long before noon In fact. The
fish appear to be coming in through
Canoe Pass, as the biggest catches
