In the appeal uiken before the rallwa' commissioners by the Delta, municipality against the V., V. &. K. railway, Chairman Mabee decided that J.
II. Senkler, K." C, should bo appointed
arbitrator, to settl.- all terms and valuation,:, of lands along the old Ladner
highway  from this City,
Mr. Senkler will have full right to
determine cos-is. II. J. Gamble, chief
engineer for the O. 1'. R., was chosen
to select and have sup.-rvision of a
new highway, to take the place of the
old laudmr road. The railway must
furnish material and construct the
road within three months' time, and
the railway is io maintain it for a
period of two years under th.- supervision   of   Mr.   ("amble.

the Delta municipality and A. II. McNeill for the V., V. &. E. railway.
Riparian Rights.
Discussing the legal side of the
ownership of the ol�� road, the commissioners suggested that tbe strip of
Land reverted to the man .".ho made
ihe concession for the use of the municipality.
Mr. McNeill���For the -ttrip of highway they ask $38,000, which the railway deems exorbitant.
Judge Mabee���-If the commission exercises lis discretion and gives you

No Chance to Get Team  in Dickson's
Sem. professional Team���Finances   Lacking.
Th.- mooted semi-professional inter-
auiional baseball league Is to become
a pet scheme of Manager Dickson, of
tbe Vancouver Beavers. He thinks It
would lie a big boost for the professional game in that city, and in addition would provide a recruiting
ground for the Northwestern clubs.
The league would comprise Vancouver, Victoria, Ballard, Bellingham.
Everett and either Seattle or Nanaimo, and should make, a strong combination.
The Idea is to have the teams play
two game's a week on .Saturdays and
.Sundays, besides all the holidays. The
Saturday games would be played mostly on this side or the border, with the
Sunday games across the line.
a:
The suggestion that Westminster
.���mor a team in this semi-pro league
has been under discussion among the
fans here for the put few days, and
while many of the players and supporters of the Westminster club favor
tho Idea, they do not see their way
clear to enter a team. To stand
any show of competing successfully
against the other cities, Westminster
would have to Import four or five players, and ihose would naturally be sal*
arled men. The llnances of the club
are not In ,a condition to warrant this,
and. judging from the support given
bas-ball in past years, gate receipts
would fall lamentably shy of providing iho necessnry .amount. Therefore,
It's Simon-pure amateurism in baseball for  us.

Delegate's Report.
The delegate to the Calgary Grain
conference, J. A. Cunningham, gave a
bright and Interesting report on the
conference. He dealt with the special claims of the western rout*, and
the necessity of terminal elevators at
the Pacific coast. The question
seemed to be to reach the Liverpool
market promptly, and It was mentioned al tbe conference the C. P. R.
could haul twice us often to the Pact-
Ac coast from Alb.-rta points than
from Calgary to Fort William. The
feeling Of Alberta to British Columbia
wias most friendly and the interchange
of trade, for fruit and lumber, was assured if properly JooKed after. The
question now was a fight, to show if
Westminster was strong enough to indue- a railway company to build an
elevator here. He pointed outto the
conference that Westminster was the
only fresh water harbor in British
Columbia, had 30 feet to the gulf, had
three l.aihvays alongside on one
street, wiih a possibility of a fourth,
and it would be cheaper to erect an
elevator here than in Vancouver. Tho
C, P. R. and Vancouver were so closely bound up tbat he did not think
Westminster would have the first
chance for an elevator if the C. P. R.
built it. The Alberta farmers were
quite willing to ship via Westmintser.
Appeal to C. N. R.
Mr. Mann had declared for the construction of the Canadian Northern
railway coming here, nnd he believed
they should get Mr. Mann to huild
here in anticipation of the railway
coming later. They should use every
effort to influence the railways or private parties to build In Westminster.

Manager's   Statement.
L. A. Lewis, manager of the sawmills company, was tailed to give evidence and told of a number of interfile extra. views between himself and various
up as follows; $500 officials of the company. Examined
by Mr. Wade, he said that one of the
officials had told him that the railway
could expropriate to go through his
property, but that they wanted to go
ibroiigh. the most convenient place for
the sawmills company. on another
occasion he was told if he had not
decided upon a route, the spur line
would be laid ihrough the tnd of the
company's kilns, and the centre of the
yard.
Mr. Mabee���Where's the fraud in
that? Thy company said they could
expropriate and so they could.
"My contention is that it was a soft
of mon.-v-or-your-life business,'' argued
Mi. Wade. Mr. Lewis was practically told that if ho didn't do what
lhe railway wanted they would expropriate anyway, and in the most injurious  way possible."
Matter of Agreement.
The chairman sa d:
"If there is any misrepresentation
at all it must be B misrepresentation
of law and not of fact."
"I think ilia: tbe effect of this misrepresentation on Mr. Lewis' mind
was that under such durance ihe railway took mu., from him a third ot
tho value of his property, which was
worth $250,000." said -Mr.  Wade.
"Mr. Lewis aud the directors of the
company should have assured themselves of the law in regard to expropriation before the deal was made.'
was Judge Mabee's remark. "In my
mind it is purely and simply a matter
of compensation now that ihe spur
has been constructed. The tracks
hav,-' douhtlev-,, been laid through a
place where there is considerable danger of Qre being caused, but this-
might be righted by the railway putting on two watchmen, selected by
Mr. Lewis, who would look out for
such contingencies."
Mr.  Wad- said    that    the sawmill
company was perfectly willing to allow the railway to construct the spur
through another part of the property-
No Decision Reached.
The commissioners postponed their
decision until after their return from
Victoria, early next week.
Conse] for the V., W. & Y. stated
tu the course of the hearing, that In
the event of Great Northern railway
being permitted to cross ihe C. P. R-
tracks above the Brunette Mills, there
would be no occasion for the crossing,
of the mill yards. This solution of
the difficulty appeared to be reasonable enough  to the board.

from achieving possession of the cov-
"t.(I prize.
There is so often in discussions ol
this kind an air of energy for a time.
then the matter in hand slips back
om of notice, and other questions
crowd in to occupy its place. But
ibis proposition is not one which the
citizens can lightly treat, l'or with it
is bound up Hi.' future nf ihe port,

The misfortune has been that a
number of enterprises have teen com
luetic, d in iliis lown which have not j
proved productive, and the man with
money to invest has become chary of
placing his money where he feels more
of a philanthropist than an investor
If the local capital ls no- forthcoming
resort should lie made to the prosperous fanners in Alberta, who would
themselves subscribe a large portion
of the stock, li would pay tbe mer-,
chants of the city to send a man into
the districts in Central Albjsrta to
canvass for capital, In the prairie
provinces so much is heard of Vancouver as a port that people believe there
is but one outlet for tlie grain, or
other produce Pacific-ward, The
nanus of Fori William and Port Arthur are always coupled with one another in the middle west, and then
is no reason if the citizens get busy
the same should not be done of Van

More railways; will lv running in-'

Everyone knows now hard it is to do it sometimes, but by buying
what you  require at the  lowest possible rates you can do it.
I will heip you in a material way if you place your fire and other
insurance with me as I can give you the lowest rates in the city.
Whether it is your stock, your buildings, your home, your furniture or
your life that you wish to insure, I will guarantee to place it for .you at a
lower premium than others charge.
I write all kinds of insurance in and place it in Canadian companies
only, so that the cost is not only less but your mone[y is helping to build
up home institutions instead of going to swell the wealth of foreign corporations.
All I ask is that you give me the chance to quote you a rate and I am
satisfied  you  will   be  convinced.

.he Conservatives of  Nanaimo are
*  up   in   arms  against   the   pro-Socialist
��  leanings of    Premier    .McBride.    The;
Nanaimo Conservative association,  at j
a meeting Wednesday  night, decided j
to  disband   as  a  protest   against  t&e
treatment meted out to it during the
past    few    years.     In    reporting the
meeUng the Herald says:
"l_ocal and provincial Liberals have j
all along contended that MeaBrs, Mc-
Bride    and    Hawthornthwalte      were j
working hand-in-hand,    and    that the i
words 'Socialists' and   'Conservatives'!
were synonymous, but those assertions !
nave been continually denied  by  the]
Conservatives and more especially by]
the rank and file of the Socialist party J
who could see no   collusion between
their idol,   Mr.   Ilawthornthwuite, and!
Premier McBride       Local    Conservatives,   however,     have     been  'thrown!
down' so often  by their louder,  that
patience has  at last  ceased 'to  be  a
virtue, and at a big mooting held last
night a strong resolution was passed,
denouncing tbe action of the administration  in the   past,  and   urging  that
the in-atier be brought before the pro*
vicial executive.
"The straw that broke the camel's
back was the appointment of Social
ists on the boards of license and police commissioners, This action on
the part of the McBrlde administration
is strongly resented by the local Conservative association, and last night's
meeting was strong in denouncing the
premier in his subservience to the Socialist leader, thereby getting returns
for his wholehearted support of nearly
���ill legislation brought forward by the
McBrlde adniinistrtalon, whether good,
bad or indifferent.
"Lasi night's ineedng to discuss tlie
matter was one of the largest ever!
| held by local Conservatives, and was
unanimous In denouncing th,. attltude
of Premier McBride as un-Conserva-
tlve, and favorable to the advancement of Socialistic principles. Without a dissenting voice the following
resolution was put to the meeting and
carried: '
" 'Resolved that In vi. w of the fact
that   the   provincial   government  has
Ignored the Nanaimo Conservative as- ���
sociailon,  and  only  given  it a  half-'
hearted support, and owing to the re-
cent appointment of Socialists on the
boards of police and llcfn'e commls-!
sioners for Nanaimo, we consider than
the days of our usefulness have ceased
and do therefore disband, and that this
resolntion be laid before the meeting
of    -the  provincial    executive, which
meets in Vancouver on February 25."
