The managers of the Delta Pair
believe ihat if the people of the British Columbia Coast country realized
what fine exhibits were offered for
their inspection at Ladner every
year, few would miss the fair.
Preparations for this year's exhibition are complete, and the entries in every line that are promised
would indicate that the 1913 show-
will be as good as if not better than
ever. The fair will be held in Ladder, Delta municipality, Friday and

l'he total area benefitted by the
works on the Nicomekl and Serpentine rivers comprises 11,941.09 acres
of land of which about 12 per cent.,
or roughly 1300 acres, is land which
might be termed semi-bog or peat
land, the depth of either running
from one to two and a half feet.
About 30 per cent, of the area,
or 3580 acres is at present under
cultivation, the balance.,* or 8360
acres being partially cleared, the
rest being nearly all of such nature
that it can be comparatively easily
cleared and brought under cultivation as soon as flood water is kept
off it.
The so-called bog or peat land may
all be brought under cultivation by
the removal of the peat by burning
and when so treated and drained will
become at least of a good second
quality; the balance of the land is
all of first class quality, and with
drainage, is of the very best in the
province, for agricultural or diversified farming, or horticultural purposes.
At Boundary Ray.
The dyking district is drained by
the Nicomekl and Serpentine rivers,
which empty into Boundary Bay. Up
to the inception of the dams the
flow of these rivers was retarded at
times by high sea tides causing overflow over the low-lying lands, thereby preventing proper drainage. It
is to prevent the flow of the tide
waters up the rivers that the dams
have been constructed. The automatic steel gates in them close
against the tides, and open at low
tide, thus allowing the rivers to
empty freely and quickly, insuring
good drainage at all times for the
entire dyking district.
The Nicomekl dam has been all
straightforward work because of the
hard formation of the ground, but
much trouble has been encountered
and overcome on the Serpentine.
There no less than 450 forty-foot
piles were driven for a foundation
for the concrete work while lines of
protective sheet piling both above
and below the dam have been put in.
Handsome Bridges.
Both structures are on the Elgin
road and seen from it are very handsome bridges with iron rails at the
sides and each adorned with an artistic tablet suitably inscribed. They
are one and a half miles apart and
the Elgin road will form the dyk-*
proposed in the scheme. There is
an 18-foct fall in the extremes of
the tide and the base of the Serpentine dam is eight feet below sea
level, its top 21 feet above, while
those of tiie Nicomekl are respectively six feet below and 21 feet above.
On the upstream side the batter is
one and a half inches to the foot, on
the downstream half an inch to the
foot. There are five sets of three-
ton gates and one set of seven-ton
gates, giving one 20 foot and five
10-foot openings In each. The Nicomekl dam is 240 feet long, the Serpentine 180 feet. Log booms have
lieen placed both up and down
stream and watchmen will prevent
tne jaming of the gates by any refuse.
.Material Used.
Some idea of tho work may be obtained from the estimate of materials used, as follows: Wet excavation, 22,SOO cubic yards; earth fill,
5,300 cubic yards; cement, 5,000
barrels; gravel, 2,840 cubic yards;
sand. 1,120 cubic yards; concrete,
3,550 cubic yards; steel, 151,000
pounds; iron bolts, 51 tons; bronze
castings, 9,000 pound"; total piling,
40,000 lineal feet; total timber, 1,-

Premier    McBride in    London Says
British Columbians to a Man
Are Behind Borden's Policy.
LONDON, Aug. 28.���The Morniiig
Post publishes a column interview
with Sir Richard McBride, premier
of British Columbia, in the course
of which Sir Richard refers to the
question of the navy, railway development and finance.
Speaking as to the attitude of
British Columbia toward the Borden
naval policy, Sir Richard said they
were all, to a man, behind Premier
Borden, and he was certain that the
more the people of Canada pondered
over this question, the stronger becomes their realization of their obligation to undertake their share of
the  Empire's  naval   responsibilities.
The Borden policy, he thinks,
should and must prevail, in spite of
its temporary set back as a result of
the action of the Senate.
"Recently," said Sir Richard,
"Vancouver was visited by His Majesty's ship New. Zealand, and then
the whole country worthily celebrated the event which, in the opinion of
such a patriotic people, was one of
Imperial importance.
"I think that the Admiralty are
to be commended for their good
judgment in sending this magnificent ship to our waters."
Sir Richard spoke in appreciative
terms of the far-sighted policy of
Sir Thomas Shaughnessy in keeping
pace with the growing requirements
of the Western zones of the Dominion railway traffic.
Everything should go well, he
said, by the time the Panama Canal
is opened. British Columbian railway development will have so far
advanced that the Pacific Coast province will be able to take a large
measure of commercial and trading
results that must follow from the
completion of that giant undertaking.
"Then we shall be able to claim
a place in the industrial world second to none." he declared.
"While the tightness of the money
market has materially affected the
development of some of the towns
which had embarked upon public
works, and had to considerably curtail them, there is no doubt that
when the monetary situation is ?e-
laxed there will be a r;*vival of activities   along   this   line."

Two million dollar is a nice sum
of money to be put in circulation
on the Fraser river, mainly as the
proceeds of three or four weekB'
work by the fishermen, but this is
approximately the amount that the
Fraser river fishermen will receive
this season. Many thousands of dollars have already been paid out and
large sums are being dispensed daily
by the various canners.
With practically no sockeyes in tbe
river and most of the fishermen and
cannery staffs idle, there is tini. to
take stock of the "big" year and
whet it means to this district and
this city particularly. The total estimated pack is 800,000 cases tor the
Fraser this season. The fishermen
get approximately $2.50 a case, it
taking about 13 1-2 sockeyes to fill
a case. At 2.50 per case, 800,000
cases mean $2,000,000 to the fishermen. In addition to this there is
the big payroll of the cannery help
to be considered.
Ab the situation stands, it was
authoritatively estimated that half a
million cases had been put up on
the river up to last Monday and a
conservative estimate gives another
hundred thousand for this week so
far, so that 600,000 cases, or three-
quarters of the pack, is up with the
end of the first run of the year.
Very little doubt is entertained
among canners and fishermen that
tbe full pack of sockeyes will be
made and the "fall run," due about
September 15, is expected to yield
the necessary fish. This second run,
frequently a very heavy one, is a
feature of "big" years.
While a proportion of the $2,000,-
000, owing to the large number ot
Japanese engaged in fishing, does not
find its way into circulation in this
country, all the white, half-breed
and Indian fishermen, who together
outnumber the Japanese, spend their
money in the district and New Westminster gets a large share of it. Now
that the fishing is slack regular
strings of fishermen and their
ramilies may be seen carrying purchases to their boats every day and'
all day. In fact the throwing of
such a sum of money into circulation
so quickly cannot help but stimulate
all branches of business and appreciably relieve the money stringency
Referring to the Japanese, while
these men undoubtedly ship money to
Japan directly as remittances and indirectly by their purchases of Japanese goods, a large proportion of
what even they make finds its way
either directly or circuitously into
local circulation. Also, as already
suggested, the' pay rolls of the canneries will greatly swell the amount
of money that will go into circulation, much of it almost immediately.
There are many channels through
which the fishing industry poofs
money into the community. Some*
of the streams are perhaps only
small, but their combined volume
must be considerable. As an instance may be mentioned a cause of
disbursement that, lR*e many others,
might not occur to the citizen not
directly connected with the industry. It is this: Almost daily each
cannery is notifying Its insurance
agents to increase the amount of Insurance carried as tlie stock of canned salmon increases. Tliis means
a bigger premium and more commission to the insurance agent. And
in many other ways, usually unconsidered, this big local industry exerts
its beneficial influence on local busl-

the planking of the No. 5 road to
Woodwind's Landing will be completed, stated Councillor William
Gay today. Seven thousand feet of
roadway have now been planked and
only  a mile  remains  to be done.
For some weeks now a gang ol
fourteen men has been engaged in
planking the thoroughfare, and tbe
work would be much nearer completion had it not been for frequent delays In the delivery of lumber. Yesterday, for instance, the crew was
able to put down plank for only naif

| Councillor Clay states that the work
is being done in first-class shape,
and when finished will receive many
tributes from autoists und others
having occasion to use the road.
The cost of the undertaking is estimated at $18,000. The provincial
government bears $10,000 of this
and the municipality the remainder.
