8-1. Ladner's lone run was made
by R. Wilson, when he poled out a

the pitcher for Port Guichon, was
the star throughout the game. He
fanned fourteen local men. Felix
Guichon of the Port team was injured in the third innings and had
to retire.
R. Wilson pitched a good game
for Ladner but was wild at times,
and was hit pretty freely throughout
the game. The one run scored by
Ladner was in the fifth inning when
Wilson came to the plate. Tbe first
ball looked easy to Roby, so putting
on some speed, hit to centre. The
centrefielder threw wild, while Wilson paraded tihe bases. Toward*

Mrs.  Kimball.  Noted Horse Woman,
Has Several Fine Animals in
West Training.
Mrs. Kimball, of Union City, Ore.,
and a noted horse woman, is at the
Agricultural Society race track, with
four promising horses, consisting of
the following names and pedigrees:
Trotter, "Major Buford," by Margrave, his dam "Spanish Cavalier."
"Major Buford" is a fine brown stallion, and starts in the 2:30 race. He
Is the only trotter Mrs. Kimball has,
the others being pacers. "Park-
Wood," p. bay, by "Hepwood," his
dam "Klondike Maid," by "Simmons," a 2:15 pacer.
The two mares owned by Mrs.
Kimball are Rothada, a bay and
2:25 pacer, by Margrave, dam
by "Spanish Cavalier." being a sister to "Major Buford," and "Spanish Maid," a glossy black animal,
but a rather green pacer, by -'Spanish   Cavalier."   dam   by   "Margrave."
Mrs. Kimball states she had much
trouble when making enquiries as
how to ship her horses to Ladner,
no railway agent having any knowledge of how to shin here, and It was
by chance he learned that the shipping point was Port Guichon. It
would be well for the Delta Board of
Trade to look Into this matter, as
others complain of freight when
shipped via New Westminster having been delayed there for several
weeks, no notification being sent to
the consignees.

Fame is to accrue to Delta because^ of Its strawberries as a result
of the visit here a few days ago ol
Mr. S. Anderson, who Is superintending the placing of the Dominion
exhibits at the World's fair at San
Francisco. Mr. Anderson visited in
company with Mr. D. B. Grant the
strawberry patch of Mr. llansell,
near the Ladner school, and pronounced the berries seen there the
best to be found in British Columbia.
He stated that as soon as possible
the government expert, who, with
headquarters at Vancouver, is getting the agricultural products ready
for exhibition, would visit Mr. Han-
sell's place and get specimens.
It was not so much the size of Mr.
Hansen's berries which appealed to
Mr. Anderson���as a matter of fact
larger berries could have been found
In a hundred and more patches in
the province���but the color, size and
general quality were all perfect.
The variety which under Mr. Han-
sell's care has secured such high appreciation, Is the Gold Dollar. The
patch In question has been as pretty
a one this month as could be imagined, and has earned may compliments frim local people. The berries will be put in preservative by
the government expert, who has had
much experience ln that line, having
prepared exhibits for many large exhibitions.
The service next Sunday evening
in St. Andrew's Church will be in
celebration of the hundred years of
peace between the United States and
Canada. Music appropriate for the
occasion  will  be  rendered.

(From The British Columbian.)
The absolute need of co-operation
among the milk shippers of the Lower Fraser Valley, in order to save
the situation for the producers, is
realized to the fullest extent by tbe
producers themselves. This was
amply demonstrated at a well attended meeting of the Mainland Milk
Producers' Association held here yesterday afternoon, when the idea of
forming a joint stock company, to
be known as the Fraser Valley Milk
Producers' Association, to have one
central distributing centre, was emphatically endorsed by the fifty odd
dairymen present and before the
meeting adjourned over $11,000 of
the required capital of $100,000 had
been pledged by the members present, who in reality total a very small
proportion of the dairymen of this
lower mainland.
Representative Meeting.
The meeting was an entirely representative one and prominent dairymen from all part of the Fraser Valley were in attendance, all showing a
keen grasp of existing conditions and
seeming to fully realize that the time
was opportune for the resurrection
of the incorporation charter granted tbe Fraser Valley Association last
June. On motion of Mr. D. Harrison, Langley, the board of provisional directors of the new association,
were ordered to proceed with the
business of organizing and to can
vas the valley re the sale of stock
A meeting at which the details of the
new concern will be more fully worked out, will be held in tbe near
Repudiated Contract.
Mr. Thomas Forster, president of
the Mainland organization, presided
and at the commencement outlined
the purpose for which the meeting
bad been called. The repudiation of
certain contracts on the part of the
retailers of Vancouver with the producers was, he stated, the initial
cause of the trouble. Tbey had signed a contract to pay ">".c a pound
butter fat, for all milk shipped to
them by the producers. Before the
expiration of the contract time, the
retailers had repudiated the whole
matter and had lowered the price of
their own volition.
Control ft  Necessary.
The report of the provisional di !
rectors then followed in which particular stress was laid upon the great
necessity tbat the producers get control of the milk situation. To do
this it was necessary to get alhsolute
control of at least 75 per cent, of the
milk now produced. Without this
the whole scheme would fail utterly as the association must be able
not only to control the supply, bu
must also be able to dispose of any
���surplus supply to the best advantage.
Better  Than   Oil   Stock.
They must also be given power to
sell and distribute equitably. The
proposal was, they pointed out, to
incorporate under the Agricultural
Art, capitalize at $250,000, divided
into 25,000 shares of $10 each, of
which amount $100,000 must be fully pnid up. The stockholders would
be compelled to pay cash for 5 per
cent, of their shares and l.r> per cent,
on demand. It was not thought
likely thnt any further demands
would be made as the business would
more than pay for itself once properly under way. The balance of
cash necessary, viz.. 8 0 per cent, of
the required $100,000 will In all
Jikelihood he secured from the Provincial government as a loan, provided the 20 per cent, is fully jmid
up when the application is made.
This is provided for bv the Act.
Mr. C. E. Eckert. 'of Chilliwack,
who prespr.ted the report, at its conclusion urged upon his hearers the
need of co-oneratlon and said the
profits from the successful organization and permanent establishment of
such an association would be very
c-rent to all concerned. Chairman
Forster declared It wns even better
(ban buying oil stocks.
Will  Make  History.
Air. John Oliver, of Delta, moved
the adoption if the report in its entirety and after thorough discussion
the motion carried by unanimous
vote. In 11 forceful speech. In which
he  urged     the    cildorsation  of    the
scheme, Mr, John w. Berry, of Langley, said: "We win make history If
this thing goes through. Co-operation is absolutely the last word. But
you men must be willing to go into
this whole heartedly, If you are
only willing to chance $100, for instance, then we may ns well quit now
as  the   whole scheme Is  killed."
Mr. K. Ii. Barrow, of Chilliwack.
declared the dairymen were losing
each year much more than the permanent establishment ol the new
company would cost them individually, and he quoted figures to show
the truth  of his assertion.
Will  Eliminate  Retailer.
The final completion and establishment of the scheme, stated Mr.
Harrow, will mean that a distributing plant, capable of handling the
entire shipment of 8,600 gallons of
milk now shipped Into Vancouver
daily, will be erected nt some point
to be decided upon, where both the
demand and the surplus supply will
be adequately taken care of and the
retailer practically eliminated. He
said the poor financial conditions
now obtaining had brought the milk
condensing plants of the province to
the point where they could not take
care of the surplus, and in Chilliwack the company had notified the
dairymen that after the 1st of July
no milk would be received at the
factory.    This would mean a further
glutting  of   the  city  markets     andi
might easily result In further reduc-|
tions in prices.    He also drew atten-l
tion to the fact tbat although    the
producer only got 18 cents a gallon
for his milk, the retailer received 40
cents in Vancouver, yet on account'
of the overlapping system in vogue 1
there,  the  retailer  could  not  make]
a good profit. '
The new    company,    he declared!
would, in  all  probability result    in
cheaper milk for the consumer with
larger profits to the producer.

His Methods.
"How can one make a success in
'poultry farming in Western British Columbia?"
This is a question asked by many
a man who is striving to make a
living on a small tract of land. This
was the question asked by Mr. E. B
de la Giroday when he settled on a
piece of land on the outskirts of
Ahbotsford. He was told that he
could make a great success of the
chicken business if he entered it on
scientific principles. He followed
the advice. Moreover, he engaged
an expert poultryman, who proceeded
on the most approved principles to
establish poultry yards. Money for
the building of poultry houses was
forthcoming; money was forthcoming for the purchase of the nucleus of a fine flock of chickens. The
poultry farm was established, and for
two or three years Mr. Giroday
awaited results���waited patiently
He knew nothing of the chicken
business. All his life he had been
an agriculturist. But he had been
led to believe in the possibilities of
the production of eggs and table
fowls, so he waited

MISSION CITY, June 24.���--No!
time has been found of the two!
thu.us who early yesterday morning
made a hold attempt to rob the!
Royal Hank of Canada at Mission
and beyond a finger print impression i... the glass ot Uie iront door,
the provincial police have no clue
by wiili li to be guided in their hunt
for the bandits. The entire district
o! the lower Fraser Valley is well
covered with cordons of provincial
and local constables and every possible loophole of escape is well
guarded, ('unstable Clarkson at
Mission has been working continuously since tbe robbery and confidently expects to get a line on the
route  taken  by the fugitives today.
No less than five separate charges
of nitro-glyccrlne were poured into
the big safe doors before an opening was made and the last shot was
tired while one of the robbers and
Constable Clarkson were exchanging  shots  in   front  of  the  building.
Entrance was effected through
the front door by breaking the glass
and turning the Yale lock from the
inside. The robbers secured a steel
bar and a hammer from the adjoining blacksmith shop of Neil Fraser
and seemed to be no novices at the
work as the Inside man worked away
to open the safe even after Clarkson had opened fire on his partner.
The escape of the men was made
doubly easy by the intense darkness.

between Kosedale and Hope, by
which the provincial highway is cut
in two and Hope is isolated from the
balance of the valley. The gentlemen point out that less than $5000
will build the road around the hill,
and that there is less than half a
mile to be built to make tlie upper
porl inn of the road available for
traff1 '���-. Farmers above the hill are
very anxious to see the improvement made, as there Is a large acreage of grain this year, and it will be
impossible to get a threshing machine in to thresh it. Valley members of the Provincial parliament
will be asked to again unite in urging prompt action on the part of the
government, and the matter will be
laid before the Associated Hoards of
Trade next Friday.

(From The Chilliwack Progress)
Responding to the call from the
leading dairymen of the district, one
of the biggest and most enthusiastic
meetings of farmers every gathered
here took place in the city hall of this
city on Saturday, June 13. The objects of the meeting were to set before the dairymen of the district the
reasons for the fluctuations in the
price of milk and to discuss ways and
means whereby a better control of the
market could be had. The objects
apparently were obtained, and although the solutions offered were
varied, co-operation in its truest
sense was admitted to be the cure-
all for most of the worries.
Co-operation was in truth the keynote of meeting. The farmers were
agreed that through it they would be
able to control the various influences
now being brought to bear on the
dairy conditions as at present in Vancouver. The conditions are such that
milk which brought to the producer
at home 45 and 50 cents per pound
butter fat a couple of months ago,
now only brings 35 cents per pound.
The reason is not far to seek. There
is now being produced in the Fraser
Valley more milk than the requirements of the city demand. A couple
of years ago tbe demand far exceeded
the supply and to meet it milk was
shipped from the Washington state
dairies. It is not an over-production
of milk products, but an excess supply of sweet milk to the markets. The
solution lies in the farmers being
able to co-operate In handling this
surplus product to their own profit.
By the manufacture of butter and the
feeding of the by-products to young
dairy stock and pigs and turning
these into cash when matured is one
solution to the market problem. The
cases as they stand today were ably
put by .Messrs. E. D. Barrow and C.
E. Eckert, of the Chilliwack Creamery Co., Mr. Chevalley, of the B. C.
Condensing Co., W. E. Buckingham,
of Eburne; J. W. Berry, of Langley,
and H. E. Almond, of Vancouver City
Dairy. Several local men took part
also in the discussion. Mr. Barrow-
was chairman of the meeting.
Mr. Buckingham's Reasoning.
Mr. Buckingham, of Eburne, one of
the leading spirits in the Mainland
Milk Shippers' Union, gave reasons
for the slump ln milk prices. Summed
up it was cause'd by a greater production of milk than the market demanded for sweet milk consumption.
The growing population of Vancouver prior to two years ago ensured a
ready market for all that the Lower
Mainland of B. C. could produce and
more. The balance of the demand
was supplied by Washington State.
During those years the price began
to soar until it reached 50 cents a
pound butter fat. It paid better for
the farmers to sell the whole milk
than it did to make butter for 30 or
40 cents a pound. Milk was sold to
Vancouver consumers and New Zealand butter was bought by the farmers. In the transaction they made 10
or 15 cents a pound butter fat. Now
conditions are changed. The fat price
for milk tempted many to engage in
the dairy industry which together
with the money stringency and the
decline in urban population caused
the over-supply of sweet milk on the
markets. The price naturally dropped.
The Remedy.
In presenting a remedy, Mr. Buckingham stated that $2,000,000 annually was being sent out of the province for butler. This amount now-
going to the farmers of New Zealand,
the prairies aud the Eastern counties
might be kept in the province if butler were manufactured bere. The
bye-products of butter in the form of
buttermilk and skim milk can with
profit be fed to young stock. The
speaker cited the experience of the
dairymen of Ontario In the production of cheese and butler. They have
made money in tho business and are
not nearly so happily situated as the
dairymen of the Fraser valley.
Mr. .1. W. Berry, of Langley, also
spoke of the value of the dairy Interests to the Fraser valley farmers. He
advised them to stay wilh tin- work,
and compared the result of grain
lanning carried on In the Delta sec-
ions with ihe fertile conditions of the
dairy (arms of chilliwack. The former were impoverished and overrun
with frog weed, while the latter are
rich In fertility from having slock
upon It. I.and must be made to pro-
(luce to ensure a prosperous community.
Mr. Chevalley, manager of the H. C,
Milk Condensery, spoke of the folly
of wasteful competition, When the
demand for milk exceeded the supply, many dairymen abused their
privileges In demanding more than
the product was actually worth. The
reaction came hard. but. It Is the onlv means by which economical production can be secured. In speaking of the talk of over-production he
declared  It  bosh.     Chilliwack.  in his
opinion, is more naturally adapted
tor the ill-eduction of milk than any
olhor district in the United States
or Canada. It has the wealth of rich
lands, the- abundance of rainfall for
grass and liny. It bus an advantage In climate which others have
not, and the markets of llritish Columbia for dairy products will always ensure good prices. Ontario,
handicapped in many ways, is happy In receiving $1.02 for milk. Chil
liwack is getting $1.50. The ambition of the dairy farmer at one time
was for dollar milk, now It is for
two dollar milk. Mr. Chevalley informed the audience that the demand up to a few weeks ago for
condensed milk could not be supplied. Since then stocks have been
piling up in his warerooms at the
rate of $2000 a day. In the month
of May $88,000 worth of stock was
piled up. It takes money, he said,
to pay men in the face of these conditions.
Co-Operntioit in Dairy Work.
Here is where co-operation holds
good. Mr. Chevalley said it was a
great thing where it was real cooperation. But where members of
the co-operative companies would
break faith and send their products
to some concern that offered them a
little better price than they were
at present getting, it proved a failure.
Mr. Eckert touched lightly on the
project now on foot to unite all or
nearly all the milk producers of the
Lower Mainland into one co-operative concern. It is the intention to
capitalize large enough to ensure
strength sufficient to cope with the
city retailers. The association intends Invading the field now controlled by the retailers, and by a
thoroughly organized effort to
cheapen the cost of milk delivery by
at least 50 per cent. Mr. Barrow
explained that through this organization it would be possible to ascertain the amount of the milk supply
of the Lower Mainland and the
amount required for city consumption. The surplus can be made into
butter or into ice cream. The pooling of the milk, in hia opinion, is
the only way to prevent wasteful
Mr. Almont, manager of the City
Dairy ln Vancouver, warned the
farmers to go carefully in their effort to control the city milk supply.
It is a big undertaking, but posisble,
and he wished them success ln the
work. Mr. Berry considered Chilliwack in a better position than any
of the other dairy sections of the
Fraser valley to undertake successful dairy work. They had an equal
advantage witb the others In the
shipping of milk and sweet cream,
and they were already equipped
with butter factories for the manufacture of butter.
Mr. _t. C. Wells, formerly president of Eden Bank Creamery Co.,
showed where co-operation had at
the outset increased the profits of
the dairy farmers 50 per cent. When
the creamery c.L Sardis was started
butter sold for trade in the stores
at 15 cents a pound. The creamery raised this price to 22 cents
cash, and 30 cents a pound was considered a handsome price. He a_-
vised manufacturing butter and
keeping the $2,000,000, now going
to New Zealand, ln the province.
