On and after Monday next, May 28, the Daily
News will be issued as a morning paper.
It will be published every morning, except Sunday, in time for the early mails.
This change is made in obedience to a resolution
adopted by the shareholders at their meeting on
Wednesday evening, May 23.
The proprietors of the Daily News, feeling the
need of a second local paper, and having ample evidence that it was needed and is appreciated, are desirous of supplying the want in the best possible way,
and are satisfied that the publication of a morning-
paper is that way.
They believe the Daily News will be in a
better position, as a morning paper, to advance the
interests of New Westminster, and thus fulfil the
purpose for which it was established.
As a morning paper it will be able to give a better telegraphic senice ; and will, incidentally, confer
upon business men the advantage of having the telegraph office open at night.
Most of the important mails go out in the morning, thus giving a morning paper prompter distribution in the surrounding country.
As nearly all the events which make local news
take place in the afternoon or evening, a morning
paper will enable its patrons to inform themselves on
such events before beginning their day's work.

Ai noon yesterday iln- time honored
custom of firing the royal salute was
duly observed in a loyal manner by
th,. old timers of New Westminster.
This was the forty-second annual salute fired by the Mosi Ancient and
Honorable Hyack Anvil Battery, and
was conducted with all the pomp and
ceremony that has characterized the
salute from the earliest times. The
ancient custom took place in front of
ex-Mayor Oven's establishment, he
providing the anvils ami ammunition,
claiming this privilege on account of
well established custom. At five
minutes to twelve. Captain Peele,
Grand Commander-in-chief and Swabber read tin roll call, all th,- members
of the company being present. Th<

to him, and loaded one of the anvils
long experience at this work having
taught him the cxact quantity of
powder to use. The Righthoister
Pickles and Lefthoister Farren then
gave an exhibition of strength that
would put a circus Samson about ninety degrees in the shade, and placed
the second anvil in position amid the
approving remarks of the battery anil
assembled  spectators.
With due and impressive ceremony
Chokeup Donahoe, Touchoff Huntley
and Blowup Mahoney performed ,he
several duties allot,-d to them in a
masterly manner, and punctually on
the first stroke of the noon hour, a
report that caused the distant mountains to tremble and the clouds to
break out in a deluge of rain was
heard, and ihe anvil went sailing up
Into the air. amid the cheers of the
battery. Timer Stewardson was severely reproved by the Commander-in
chief for neglecting his duty, having
allowed his gaze lo wander from tha
battery timepiece to the soaring anvil, so that the tin e n ade by th ,'
anvil in Its aerial flight was nol ascertained, ami is now losi io posterity

Although not strictly included in tha
duties of the battery, no member absented himself, and many volunteers
were present to toast the ancient custom in the time honored way. There
is no official record of the battery-
having been dismissed by the Commander-in-chief, and until this is done,

Lillooet, B. C, -May 24.���The prom;,-,
and energetic a,'Mon of .1. Russell, one
of ib< recently appointed game wardens for Lillooet, has saved from annihilation ihe trout supply of tin
Bridge River district.
For so,it,- lime past tin- people of
ibis district who k.-ow th, value of
trout fishing as an attraction to the
toifrlst hav, been alarmed by reports

spawning grounds in Hi,- tributary
streams, ami Immediately after his appointment, Mr. Russell 1,,-gan an investigation which 1,-ad to the discovery that Indians had constructed fish
traps ai the mouths of the st roams,
and thai few, ir any, ol' the iron!
Were given a chance to proceed to
Mn- spawning grounds.
When Mr. Russell arrived on the
sen, of destruction he found that thc
Indians had already, by means of
numerous traps captured thousands of
fish more 'ban they could possibly
require for their own consumption, and
ihat lhe waste was something appalling. He at once set to work to destroy the traps. The Indians at first
offered some opposition to Mr. Russell, hit, when they became convinced
of his authority, and his determination
to act upon it, they resigned to :h<- Inevitable.
This official interference wiih the
work of the Indians was commence!
none loo soon as it is quite evidenl
thai had the traps been allowed to remain much longer a total annihilation of the trout would have resulted.

keep a close watch on the movements
of Indians whose apparent desire for
the annihilation of game is not confined to trout. Inn their work- the war-

practical assistance of all the white

Clue in Murder Case.
Lillooei, B. C, May 24 ���-Constable
! Burr of Ashcroft has been here for the
past few days working on a clue in
connection with the murder of iwo
Chinamen in separate cabins, about
eight miles above here, on the banks
i of the Fraser river, about a month ago.
The visible evidence made it quite
certain that the motive of the crime
was robbery as the victims weire
known to have in their possession
considerable gold dust which they had
washed out on sand bars. Either Indians or Chinamen were suspected of
the crimes. A reward of $5110 has been I
offered for the capture of the murderer  ur  murderers.

of amusing himself has been making
himself a nuisance on the streets during the past week. His method is to
drop a handkerchief on the street,
and th,.n watch until someone picks

thc handkerchief. After several ladies had picked up the handkerchief-
and had been insulted, the chief of

This morning he was charged in the

From the Progress, May 23.
S. P. Wilson, of the Wilson Commission Co., Ltd., of Brandon, Man.,
was in town from Saturday to Monday
in the Interests of his Arm. The object of Mr. Wilson's visii al ihis time
is to establish direct relations with
the fruit growers of Chilliwack and
to make a contract tor the purchase
of two carloads of prunes, A number
oi' prominent fruitgrowers met with
Mr. Wilson on Monday afiernoon and
talked over the situation. The fact
that lhe new organization of the local
fruit growers has liar,lly been completed prevented them from entering
into a definite contract bul tin- proposition of lhe Wilson Company was wry
favorably considered. The proposition
is to purchase the fruit outright al a
staled price, the growers lo pack and
deliver il al lhe railway. Mr. Wilson
was given llie assurance, however, thai
the local shippers would supply him
wiih at  leasi a ear of prunes.
Mr. Wilson was on iln- coasi last

He was greal l.v surprised wiih the ex-
leni uf the ilisl ricl and the amount of

Ihere is a greal future for the fruit
imlusiry here.
Talced as In the , xl,'til of the fruit
business done by bis company the reply was lhal lasi year ihey had handled 52 ears of apples, 3 ears peaches,
and I1- cars of prunes. This is in addition io iheir general commission

are always in  ihe  market.
'l'lie bulk ol' their apples came from
Ontario and were packed in barrels aw
ibis package is mosl in favor wilh lbe
People of Manitoba.
The peaches were Californian as
ib-' Ontario article does not carry

Ibis province and Mr. Wilson .stales
thai the il. C. prune 's steadily glowing in favor wilh lb.' northwest trade.

It mean.'- that the merchant or man
in business will hav,- means of instantaneous communication to the

Tbe idea is not a new one, although il may appear as such to sonic.
Many communities nol nearly so large

Washington. IV ('.. Maj L'l. Secretary Metcalf, complj-in- with a resolution of the house, has senl to thai
body a long reporl from Commissioner
General Sargent of the Immigration
Bureau, giving the history of the e_ ���
forcement of the Chines,, exclusion
The last chapter of the report deals
with the Chinese boycott of American
goods and reproduces official proclamations of Chinese officials, which, de-
spite assertions to the contrary, show
ihat the Chinese government is at
least noi  discouraging the boycott.
In duly of last year an official proclamation wns made by the Chines-
consul general at San Francisco to
Chinese in this country. The official
translation of ii contains ihis language:
"The Chinese exclusion act of tin

against by means of commercial bov-
cott   on   American   goods.
"The said boycott tins department
(Chines, for, ign office) has never al
any time prohibited or obstructed."
Tin- report states 'hat at, the time
this proclamation was issued, newspaper reports had come from Minlst r

government is vigorously opposing the
threatened boycott of American

issued by the Chinese officials ani
vised by American consular officers
for Chinese persons so palpably coolies that it is difficult to conceive that
any one even glancing at them casually should have taken them for members of any other class."
During the past three years, the report says, 1,245 section six certificates
were issued and vised in China. Of
these 277 were persons not entitled

report adds thai the Chinese now
