To Be About Where the
Matter Stands at the
Present ��� Premier Declares Against Them.
Fish traps are a live issue in Victoria at present, though the matter
is one of Dominion more than ot
local politics. The other day the
secretary of the board of tr?de sent
the following telegram:
"Hon. W. Templeman, Geo. Riley,
M.P.:
"Special meeting board trade
council discussed fish traps question to-day. Unanimous as to urgency licenses being granted. Understand department in position issue licenses. Please wire reason ol
the delay."
Senator Templeman replied that
"Mr. Prefontaine will visit Victoria
on fish trap question after session.
Expect early decision."
The resolution favoring traps
passed by the council of the board
was as follows:
"That, in the opinion of the
council of the Victoria board of
trade, it is advisable, in the interest
of the fishing industry, that the
government hatcheries should be
enlarged and improved, and that
fish traps should be allowed in the
British Columbia waters, due regard being paid to the enforcement
pf proper restrictions for the prevention of waste and the wilful and
careless destruction of fish life by
those engaged in the business."
In the discussion of the matter,
at a special meeting of the board, J.
J. Shallcross opposed delay in view
pf the fact that Premier McBride
had expressed himself against fish
traps.
Mr. Helmcken read the remarks
of Premier McBride, in which the
latter had stated thft he had "a
fixed determination to continue to
oppose the introduction of fish
traps." Mr. Helmcken added that
1 he had a fixed determination to continue to have traps introduced.
Charles Hayward wanted the
opinion of the board expressed. He
favored the adoption of the most
improved mtthods. They could
aot hope to compete with the Americans while the latter adopted the
wholesale system of catching. He
believed that this telegram from
Senator Templeman meant only the
delay of the question. The Domin
ion gov��rnment had shown itself
excellent delayers of matters. It
was with this object in view that
this visit was promised. He expected the minister would delay his
visit for three months.
Mr. Lugrin, a prominent Liberal,
lamented that Mr. Hayward should
(0 out of hia way to introduce
party politics into tjiis discussion.
He regretted that Mr. Hayward
should find it necessary to take this
ground. He thought thft it was
out of the question to urge that
Hon. Mr. Prefontaine desired delay
Was it reasonable to expect that
that minister should cocqe to definite
conclusion suddenly on a subject
upon which the people of British
Columbia were divided. Hon. Senator Templeman, George Riley,
M. P., Senator Macdonald and
Thomas Earle, M. P., all, he believed, were in favor of fish traps,
while the mainland members were
opposed to them. The subject had
been strenuously argued in the past,
and the minister might well be excused from coming to a hasty conclusion. The division of opinion
was shown in the expressed avowal
of Premier McBride that he would
oppose the introduction of traps.
The matter was left over.
REEVES'  CONVENTION.
Reeve Atkins, of Coquitlam, on
Saturday last suggested that the
annual convention of the Reeves of
the various municipalities should be
summoned earlier this year on account of the legislature meeting in
November.
As a rule this important conference is held in December, to discuss
measures to be brought up in the
House at the sessions in January or
February. Since the president's
chair has become vacant by the
death of the veteran Reeve of
Matsqui, doubtless the secretary
will see that the above suggestion is
acted upon.
AN OPEN LETTER.
Hon. R. McBride,
Premier.
Sir,���I do not see how you could
wonder at my cool return of your
salute after the neeting here last
Thursday.
Only a few short months ago you
were fighting, apparently tooth and
nail, during the by-elections in
North Victoria and Yale, as a Liberal, for a Liberal (Paterson), with
a Liberal (Oliver), and against the
same gang that you have now gone
over to���the insolent ring of chronic
office holders in Victoria.
You knew you could not stand
one hour with the following you
had, so, of course, gladly accepted
the chance to join the self-styled
Liberal-Conservatives to enable you
to retain power.
What do you care about perpetuating such a blighting curse on the
people, if only you can be Richard
McBride, Premier?
If vou honestly intended reform
in its least degree, the moment you
entered the Lands and Works Department, as Chief Commissioner,
you would have sent Mr. S. Gore
out for a start. You know this
quite well.
What aie honest people to understand by your hifaluting stand on
the Mongolian question, while all
the time you are struggling to return to parliament as one of your
supporters, W. H. Ladner, who is
the sole owner of Chinatown here,
the constant breeder and maintenance of that horrible pestilence in
our midst ?
JOHN W. RUDD.
Mrs. T- Kirkland will leave shortly on a visit to California, where
she will spend the winter. The
Baptist minister, being unable to
obtain a house, has been given the
privilege of keeping Mrs. Kirk-
land's house warm during her absence.
Free Exhibition Against
His Will���Mike Happened Along in the Nick
of Time.
On Monday evening, at Point
Roberts, Professor Barrett, a travelling showman, fell off the wharf
and would have drowned had it not
been for the timely and effectual aid
rendered by Mike Keating and Mr.
Merriman, book-keeper at Point
Roberts.
Although this happened on the
other side of the line it was Canada
which supplied the life-saving apparatus in the form of a man who,
though only a common fisherman,
whom some are inclined to look
down upon, dared to risk his life to
save that of another, even though
that other be a citizen of another
country. In this instance, though,
rescuer and rescued claim one nation as theirs.
Such acts as these deserve the
Royal Humane Society's medal.
It was an act of no mean merit to
enter the waters of the Fraser with
a spring tide in full flood, encumbered with clothing as Mike was.
May you ever be as successful,
Mike.
JOLLY JACK TARS.
H. M. S. Shearwater has been
ordered to Ifew Westminster for
Exhibition week. The Admiral
himself cannot attend in person, so
has done the next best thing and
ordered the jolly Jack Tars to have
a good time.
His Honor the Lieutenant-Gov
ernor regrets he cannot be present
at the opening this year.
The merry-go-round has arrived
and will be in readiness to entertain
the children Irom all parts of the
province.
Valuable Time Saved.
Slight injuries often disable a
man and cause several days' loss of
time and when blood poison develops, sometimes result in the loss
of a hand or limb. Chamberlain's
Pain Balm is an antiseptic liniment.
When applied to cuts, bruises and
burns it causes them to heal quickly
and without maturation, and prevents any danger ot blood poison.

By a New Arrival From
the Northwest���The Products of This District
Exhibited To-Day.
Rev. Canon Hilton, writing from
Ladner, B. C, at the mouth of the
Fraser river, reports the Delta
municipality to be one of the most
fertile districts in British Columbia,
if not ou the continent. The grain
yield is enormous. The district
consists of about 50,000 acres, and
tbe town of Ladner is situated
amidst scenes of exceeding beauty.
Boundary Bay, some five miles from
the town, rivals California for
beauty and is fast becoming a very
fashionable camping and bathing
resort. Families from Ladner,
New Westminster and Vancouver
assemble here in the summer
months, attracted by the beauty of
the place and the best bathing
beach on the coast. Quite a number of cottages are being erected.
Farm lands in the Delta sell at
from $100 to $200 per acre, which
conveys some idea of the richness
of the soil. Fruit and flowers
grow in rich profus: ->n and in places
the growth is almost semi-tropicaL
The exports from this comparatively small area this autumn will be:
Grain, $175,000; 10,000 tons ot hay
at $10 a ton; butter, $30,000; ijy,-
000 cases of salmon, besides tbe
fruit export.
The salmon run has been verf
small this year and several of tho
canneries are closed down pro. tern.
The particular good salmon ran
seem to go in eyles every fourth
year. It seems extraordinary how
little this very pleasant and rich
district is known. Jilt is within easy
reach of Westminster and Vancouver, and six hours' sail from ��ic*��
toria. Trains and boats connect
also with Seattle.

of the place, has just been nont_s-

���JlTURDAY,   SEPTEMBER   26,    1903,
RAIN AND  POLITICS.
There is nothing but rain and
politics in the air at present. It is
hoped on all sides that at least one
of the twain will give us a rest for
a short while. Both are all right
in their places, but an excess of
either is not good for the soil or the
soul.
With about fifty per cent, of the
harvest still on the field���cut or
standing���and a record rainfall of
|hree inches in twenty-four hours,
the prospect qf .saving it is not very
good.
Unless the weather remains cool
���with a good drying breeze for the
next few days the loss jto the district will indeed be very heavy.
Some farmers have their crop all
down awaiting the arrival of the
threshers which cannot do anything
at present, thereby entailing a direct
loss to the owners.
THE  DREDGE.
We hear complaints from up and
down the river about the way the
dredge is bciag occupied. She was
originally built for the Fraser river,
to dredge a channel for ships of all
kinds. Now, instead of attending to
her mission, she is to be found making boelevards, etc., at Victoria,
which does not affect the farmers of
the Fraser Valley.
One government dredge on the
Fraser river is little enough. From
Chilliwack to Ladner, aye, and farther out than that, ls badly in need
of the dredge's work. With the
Dominion elections so near at hand
it would be to the interest of our
���ember to see that she returns to
the Prater without delay.
Ladner, in particular, tho ship*.
fiig point for the Delta, where
hundreds of thousands of dollars'
worth of farm produce���hay and
������ts���are shipped yearly, is sorely
in need of a channel sufficiently
large to enable shipping of good
size to enter, load and able to get
���way again without having to back
���ut for a mile or more before she
is able to turn,
, It seems to us that very little hi'
terest is taken in Fraser river matters. If Victoria needs a dredge
frhy dees the government at Ottawa not build her one and leave ours
free to attend to her work in the
Fraser.
If our member has any intention

A meeting was held here Tuesday evening, with H. Trim in the
chair. There was a good attendance. John Oliver addressed the
meeting at the opening and close
for half an hour at each time. W.

half an hour. W. T. Jones, of
New Westminster, spoke in support
of the Conservative party.
W.. H. Ladner spoke advocating Woman's Suffrage and a bridge
across Canoe Pass.
W. T. Jones very cleverly dealing
with the parting of the ways.
John Oliver made a very forcible
speech.
All hands were splendidly entertained by the farmers of the Island.
A   WELL   KNOWN   ALBANY
MAN.
Recommends Chamberlain's Colic,
Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy.
About eighteen months ago Mr.
W. S. Manning, of Albany, N. Y.,
widely known in trade circles as
the representative of the Albany
Chemical Co., was suffering from a
protracted attack of diarrhoea. "I
tried Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera
and Diarrhoea Remedy," he says,
1 'and obtained immediate relief. I
cheerfully recommend this medicine
to those similarly afflicted." Sold

NOTES FROM ENGLISH.
The foreman on Harry Trim's
threshing machine met with a very
painful accident while looking over
the machine, his arm, in some way,
being caught in the belt and was
broken. Last reports say he is do-
ing as well as can be expected.
Death has removed one of the old
residents in the person of Mr. Blair,
sr. The i_deceased_ hads_been ill for
about three months.
The farmers are "again rejoicing
in the fine weather and threshing
grows apace, The 'fields are looking bare but the farmers are more
than satisfied with the heavy crop
of grain.

Very Remarkable Cure ot Diarrhoea.
"About six years ago for the first
time in my life I had a sudden and
severe attack of diarrhoea," says
Mrs. Alice Miller, of Morgan,
Texas, "I got temporary relief,
but it came back again and again,
and for six long years I have suffered more misery and agony than I
can tell. It was worse than death.
My husband spent hundreds of
dollars for physicians' prescriptions
and treatment without avail. Finally we moyed to Bosque county,
our present home, and one day I
happened to see an advertisement of
Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and
Diarrhoea Remedy with a testimonial of a man who had been
cured by it. The case was so similar to my own that I concluded to
try the remedy. The result was
wonderful. I could hardly realize
that I was well again, or believe it
could be so after having suffered so
long, but that one bottle of medicine, costing but a few cents, cured
me."   For sale by F. J. MacKenzie.

How Betaf Got Her Nickname).
Betsy's mother was unusually busy ono

Betsy ran into the Ultohen and was,so

A Story of Winnie Davis.
Thero is a story told of her by a resident
of Philadelphia wbich shows why Wlnnil
Davis was hold so dear by the veterans ol
tho Confederate army. The man who tells
lt was a colonel under the stars and ban
���nd is how a rich man. "But five yean
���go I wasn't," he says. "I'd lost every
penny I'd hod before the war, and I hail
not made many since. A big slump in tho
west had done for me, and I put up nt v
New York hotol with just enough to pay
my bill and no more. My nerves gavs
way, and I was taken ill. The docto
said I muftC have a long rest and a com
plete change .A scone. I said I might rosJ
in tho grave anel flange this scone for thai
of the next world, but that I bad no money or friends and would never leavo tht
city aDy way but feet flrst. Well, Mia
Davis was stopping at that hotel. Sh<
knew I wouldn't acoept money from her,
so she got the doctor to protend he was
lending me his own. I went abroad and
oame home cured and already on the waj
to wealth. It was only then that I found
out whom I owed my life to. You know
her book, 'The Toiled Doctor?' Well, foi
me there is in an equivocal significance li
that name."���Philadelphia Press.

In Connecticut a few yenrs ago lived ���
lady who had a beautiful flower garden,
ln which sho took groat prido. The whob
neighborhood was proud of it, too, and poo
pie drove miles to see it. Sho fastened tw<
lar_:e briskets on the outside of her fenci
noxt to tho road, nnd every morning thesi
were filled with cut flowers���the lurgo.
showy kinds in ono basket and tho deli
onto, fragile kinds in the other. All thc
school children going by helped themselvoi
and studied the bettor for it, and busluosi
men took u breath of fragrance into theii
dusty offices which helped the doy along.
Even the tramps were welcome to ull tin
beauty thoy could get into their forlorn
lives.
"You out such quantities," some ow
said to her. "Aren't you afraid you will
rob yourself?"
"Tho more lout the more I.have," sh��
answered. "Don't you know that if plant!
are iiliowod to go to seed they stop blooming? I love to givo pleasure, und it li

A Water Lily Pond.
An admirable pond seon somo year��sln��
was made ln the following manner: A
holo some 12 feet in diameter and 5 feet it
depth was first dug, and this was plastered
with mortar to tho depth of 4 inchr* al
tho sides und bottom. A piece of lead plpt
was put ln to make tlie desired drain, and
duo respect was paid to constructing f
place outside of whore it went through, et
that tho water would drain off through f
layer of rocks nnd sand. When the mor
tar was dry, it was treated to a coat of ci*.
tern- cement. In tho oentor was constructed a miniature Island of stones and earth,
and upon it was a mass of foliage anc
.flowers, while pink, white and yellow wa
ter lilies filled the space around It, and
somo tadpoles grow to bo sedate frogs under tho shade of the broad leaves. One
year half a dozen dwarf oallas and a lot ol
old fashioned wandering jews made tht
island u fairyl'.ko place, and sevoral yean
later oniuryi]'-plants of many oolorsreveled in tho auu and moisture of the island.
No ono who- has not soon une of tbe miniature ponds can imagine their beauty.���
