'l the land,
FRIDAY,   MARCH   13, 1908.
The present nominee of the Conservative party in this city in his address in St. George's Hall ou .Monday last declared that -Mr. Tillman
Herring had been filched of his homestead hy the sale of some land to Mr.
T. W. Patterson in 1905. Tliis erroneous declaration was made and contradicted in the early days of 1907, but
Mr. Taylor's memory must have failed
Ilim and for want of other matter,
allowed himself to produce it again
with a little seasoning as though it
were fresh.
We do not suggest that Mr. Taylor j
knowingly mis-stated the case or that
he  deliberately  used it  to misrepresent,   therefore   we   will   endeavor  to
give the facts of the case, so that in j
the   future  that   gentleman    or    any:
Other local speaker may have no ex-;
cuse to offer for perverting the truth.!
The facts are:    That Samuel Her- |
ring squatted on the old Colon'al Cue-.
fcoms  House Reserve in 1871,  in the
'building,    which    yet    remains,    and i
which was built by or under the direc-'
tion of   Governor   Douglas.    It   was
Eguutly  afterwards   leased to  Samuel I
Herring by the Government of British I
Columbia at a rental of $480 per annum.    This  rental  was  subsequently
rr-dueeii to $180 upon   representation
only the  foreshore  was of
other than the right of way
granted   and   that   nothing  could  be
done for -Mrs. Herring or Tillman Herring anrl in November, 1895, they were
j notified to leave immediately.   It must
' be noted liere, that from LS90 to 1S93
i the Conservative Government and Its
j Department of Interior had had   five
! years  in  which   to  repent  of its de-
| cision to evict, and In March, 1900, en-
! quiry was made by the   Department.
I when it was found that Mrs. Herring
had been dead some years and    that
Tillman Herring was still in  possession   of  the  old   Custom   House  and
garden, aud it was suggested by the
Land Agent, Mr   Mackenzie, in a letter to the Department that Mr. T. W.
Herring  be  allowed  to  purchase  the
j one acre so occupied at a reasona'le
j rate as it was all he was using and
much more satisfactory than carrying
j out the order of ejectment.   This was
1 supported by the sitting member, Mr.
Morrison, and endorsed by the Inspec-
. tor.    The Department acquiesced and
; permission wns granted, but Mr. Her-
j ring neglected to avail himself of it.
: and when in 1902 the survey for the
��� bridge approach cut-off three acres be-
also applied for a piece for station
purposes which is still held. The Surrey Municipality also applied for a
piece for cattle range and in 1904 the
Provincial Government obtained title
to road allowance.
No application was ever made for
the section which Mr. T. W. Patterson
purchased other than one for a portion of it by Mr. Minthorne, but whereas, where there were two or more applications it was the rule of the Department of Interior, under both Conservative and Liberal administrations,
to put the property applied for up to
tender with .an upset price of $5.00 per
acre according to law, yet in this instance it was put up to competition by
public auction at the upsefc_ price of
$10.00 an acre. This course was not
so much necessary in the light of after even's for in November, 1901, Mr.
Minthorne withdrew his application
because he considered the land, necessitating dyking, was not worth fifty
con;- an acre, so that under the law
as well as under the rule of the Department there being only then one
applicant the Government could have
granted the land without auction or
tender did it wish so to do. The instructions to sell by auction were
again confirmed with the purpose
stated of giving everybody a chance
to bid. It was advertised by half sh?et
posters for fourteen days from Mission
to the mouth of the Fraser and from
Abbotsford north to Vancouver in
public places. It also had the advertisement of criticism in the Columbian,
World and News-Advertiser, ana Herring's interest safeguarded by Mr.
.Joseph Martin's wire to Ottawa and
the reply "Land to be sold does not
include the four acres sold to you"
and subject to assessment for improvements if any were found thereon,
and although every portion of the
property appeared wild there was an
allowance of $215.80 made for a .ec-
tion of two acres said to have been
tinder cultivation at one time together with some ditches made fo the
fence  back of the  railway  track  bv
Mr. Herring's father. The small upset price gave men with small means
a chance and was fixed by a Conservative Inspector of Agencies at Winnipeg. The land adjacent thereto and
which is included in the Patterson
private dyke, lot 8 was sold either to
Mr. B. Douglas or Mr. Insley at the
regulation rate of $2.50 per acre under the Conservative Government and
the both sections were valued by Mr.
Albert Hill, C. E��� as only worth fifty
cents an acre. In this case the regulation price was $5.00 an acre and the
upset price fixed at $10.00 per acre. In
view of these facts which cannot be
controverted how is it possible that
Mr. Taylor can claim jobbery or that
Mr. Tillman Herring has been filched
of his homestead ? Let us hope that
for honor's sake that, aspirant for a
seat in the Councils of the Dominion
will withdraw his statement and set
Himself right before his constituents
and the country.

Building Will Cost at Least $10,000���
Total Estimates of School Board
Amount to $25,000.
There is a strong probability that a
new building wdll be erected in Sapperton to accommodate the growing
school population in that part of the,
city during the year, although the
elze and the cost of the school are as j
yet problematical. The matter was
under debate at the meeting of the
school board last night, when it was
decided to place In the estimates for
the year a sum of ten thousand dollars for the purpose. It was at" first
proposed to make the amount $18,1.00,
the amount required to build and
equip a thoroughly up-to-date frame
school, but this was reduced to $10,-
000 on recommendation of the council,
to which an addition can be made
later in the year if found necessary.
Altogether the board approved of
$2...000 for the estimates.
A communication was read from
the superintendent of education intimating that Mr. Oonnell would be

The Battle ���( Kc4��a��_.
Not far from St. Thomas, a matter of
perhaps a- hundred miles, was fought
tbe most wonderful naval battle in all
history.   The Dutch admiral detected
the enemy ln the early morning, when
the sea was covered with a thick mist,
and his guns opened fire at once without warning.   The fire was returned
with Interest, tha ocean fairly quivering with spasms caused by the shock
of frequent discharges.   Somehow or
other the enemy's shots, which sounded like a bombardment, seemed to fall
short or go wide of the mark, for not
even a splash of a ball was heard, and
tbe Dutch ships remained unscathed.
On the other hand, the Dutch could not
nee the terrible execution their guns
���were doing until nearly the middle of
the forenoon, when the fog lifted, revealing to their astonished gaze not the
vessels of the enemy, but a great rock
fdnnding out of the sea. They had been

of tbe return shots they heard was the
echo from  the solid  wall of granite.

This company is formed tor the purpose of supplying the City of Vancouver with absolutely clean and
pure milk ofthe highest quality, free from drugs and deleterious germs.   The need of such a milk su        la
so well known that there is no need to dilate on this question, the plans of the Company   having    the
earnest support of the Medical Society, the Provincial and City Health   Officers,  and every doctor  \..
An option has been secured at a very favorable price on the well known Cruickshank Farm al Mat qui
elo.se to the C. P. R., and on the route of the Chilliwack tram line. Tliis property comprises 640 at ��� uf
which 400 acres are in a high state of cultivation, and the balance is rich pasture. It is proposed to ereel
thoroughly modern barns witb cement floors throughout, well ventilated and lighted, and a modern li and
hottling plant, shipping by special refrigerator car to Vancouver every day.
The price to be given tor the farm is $75,000, or about $117 per acre, a very low figure considei ag
thc quality of the land, the improvements and the situation. Ii would be hard to find a farm tiettei
adapted for the purpose of a large modern dairy. Tlie terms of purchase are $25,00u cash, and the balance in fully-paid shares of the Company.
From the sum of $100,000 to be realized from the sale of 10,000 shares now offered, there will remain
$75,000 after paying the cash portion of the price of the farm property. It ls believed that this amount
will be sufficient for the erection of the necessary buildings and equipment and the purchase of abo il 509
cows, especially selected after careful examination.
The City has no authority at the present time to inspect any dairies outside the City. The Company
proposes to give it this authority, so far as its own .tarns and premises are concerned, and will welcome
such inspection at all times. It also proposes to ask the Medical Association to appoint a committee of inspection.
The City records of 1907 show 148 deaths of babies under twelve months' old, and medical men have
stated their opinion that at least 90 per cent, or say 133, of these deaths are directly traceable to mil..
either drugged or contaminated at time of consumption. It is needless to say that 148 does not by an>
means cover the total number of deaths of children, as it is the number of those under twelve months of
age only.
Out of thirty samples of milk collected In Vancouver during 1907 and analyzed by the Dominion Go.
ernment authorities, only two samples reach 314 per cent., which Is the average Canadian percent..cc of
butter fat), and fourteen of them were officially described as either watered or skimmed, and were below
3 per cent, which ls the Vancouver City standard.
The average farmer and milk vendor is perhaps unaware of the need of the most scrupulous cleanliness
in every detail in the handling and delivery of milk, and lacks the necessary capital for the erection oi
cement floored barns, properly lighted and ventilated, the equipment of refrigerating and bottling machinery, and the employment of men technically trained in what ig now recognized as a business requiring
���scientific care and management.
Without a supply of natural ice, or the means of artificial refrigeration, milk cannot be kept during the
period of twenty-four to forty-eight hours which elapses between milking and delivery, without the aid of
powerful preservatives, such as formaldehyde, etc. This drug prevents milk turning sour, even if exposed
to the sun, but this and other preservatives are very dangerous.
This Company will supply milk only of the highest standard, both as to quality and purity. It do..- aot
propose to pasteurize milk, which at best is a makeshift.
It should be clearly understood that pasteurized milk is not pure milk; it is only Impure milk which
has been renovated, and the Impurities to a greater or less extent removed.
'Ilie very fact that milk needs pasteurizing is in itself a suspicious circumstance. This Company never
Intends having milk on any of its premises in need of renovation, as it will keep only healthy cows, which
will be under constant veterinary supervision; the milk, when produced, will be pure and absolutely clean.
���and will be kept in that condition until delivered to the consumer.
Immediately after milking, the milk will be aerated and cooled to a temperature of 38 degrees, put in sal
ed bottles and delivered at the doors of customers exactly as it left the farm, and at the same tempera
tine; this will prevent the need of drugs in summer to keep it sweet, and will also prevent the propagation of injurious bacteria in the milk, to which is attributable the enormous infantile mortality In the
City and district.
Arrangements have been completed to secure the services of a well known dairy expert as general manager. This gentleman has successfully operated one of the largest creameries In Canada, and has made B
special study of all matters connected with the handling and feeding of cattle.
Paper estimates of profits are some times delusive, so the directors content themselves with pointing out
the well known fact that all the Hairy farmers In the district have been for many years doing very Wi I "
deed, and the milk distributors have been doing even better, one firm being credited with making B profit
of $100 per day all last summer.
It is well known that in no part of Canada can cow feed be produced cheaper than in the Lowei
Fraser Valley, and as similar companies in the Fnlted States, which sell their milk at lower prices than
are current here, pay good dividends, there is no reason why this Company should not do Ihe sain''. M
the use of milking machines and labor saving devices in handling the feed, manure, etc., etc., should > tTM''
the higher wages of this Coast.
The Company aim to keep 500 cows, but it will be obviously impossible to get this number In 8 >'��� ���'
and while every effort will be made to deliver milk hy June, before tne hot weather begins, it Is doubtful II
more than 100 cows can ihe obtained by then and tbe necessary barns and buildings completed. In s<
the milk, preference wlll naturally have to be given to the shareholders ��f the Company, and It Is
likely there will be any surplus for sale to the general public for at least the first year of operation
as there will be probably many people of small means in urgent need of this milk, the shares have
put at a price, and on terms, within the reach of all.

A sense of direction I should name

It must be inborn. Some men posses!
It: others do not ���just ns some nieH
have a mathematical bent, while to
oiher�� figures are always a despair. It
Is a suit of extra, having nothing to
do with criterions of intelligence ox

mu .ment in a watch. .A highly educated, cultured man may lack it; th��
rougher! possess it. Some who have
never been lu t!:. woods or mountains
acquire ill the space of a vacation a
fair facility at picking a way, and I
have met a few who have spent their
lives on tlie prospect trail and who
were stiK and always would be as
helpless as tlie newest city dweller
It Is a gift, a talent. If you have its

Trampled to death in a panic of chnnU
members attending services in t_ie
Bmall town of Ocotlan, five women and
fourteen children were killed and several were severely injured when an
alleged insane man closed the great
doors of the edifice, announcing: "God
ha   commanded me to do this."
A class of children was being con-
fii'meil by Rev. Ignacio Placcencia.
Suddenly the crazed man sprang toward the front iloor and quickly
closed them Then he turned ' and
faced ihe congregation, declaring:
"Yes, God has commanded me to
keep the people in. God i.s coming to
punish the wicked."
A moment later a wild panic followed. Every person rushed for the
doors. Gh'ldren were trampled under the'feet of the women, who fought
fiercely with each other in their dash
for liberty- The pastor, still standing
by the doors, was swept from his Teet
by the frightened women and children,
Tnstantly one of the doors was almost
torn from its hinges and the massed
crowd fell into it. Five women and
fourteen children were crushed to
death near the door.

Tor Texas Oeveolpment.
Fort  Worth,     Tex.,  March   12���All
sections of the state were represented here today at the opening'of a two
days' conference to discuss the future
development of Texas  along agricultural and commercial lines.   The conference results  from a call recently
issued by the Texas Commercial Secretaries'    association.    It Is Intended
in  reality   to   give expression   to   a
growing sentiment that the State of
j Texas, ln some of Its legislative acts
during the past year or two, may have
overreached herself ln adopting mea-
j sures hostlte to the railroads and other
I large corporate interests.    Those res-
I ponsible  for  the   present  conference
I believe that  any  further    legislation
j along these lines would for the pres-
1 ent be unwise  and    would    tend   to
I check the hitherto wonderful develop-
1 ment. of the resources and Industries
1 of the State.    It Is proposed that tha
! commercial organlzntons of the State
, shall formulate or suggest such mea-
1 isures for the guidance of the legisla-
! ture as are believed to be for tin. beat
Interests of the State and with a view
to the welfare of the general public.
