Washington, D.C., May 16.���Attorney-
General Olney has rendered an opinion
at tho request of Secretary Carlisle upon
the question whether Chinese merchants
lawfully in tlie United states when  the
statute of November, 1808,  took effect
are within the provisions   Of   the   third
paragraph of Bection - uf that  statute,
which provides as follows t   "Whero an
Chinaman   for
entrance into the United States on the
ground that he was form���'ly engaged in
business In this country, as a merchant,
he shall establish by the testimony of
two creditable witnesses other than
Chinese the fact that he conducted such
business as bo bofore defined for at least
one year boforo his departure from tho
United States and that during such year
he had not engaged in tho performance
of any manual labor except such as was
necessary in the conduct of his business
as such merchant and in default of such
proof shall bo refused landing." Tho
Attorney-General says that to interpret
the language of the statute literally
would bo to mako Congress establish a
now class of Chinese persons admissible,
to the United States to wink at persons
who might not be merchants at time of
thoir application and might even bo
laborers but who had boon merchants in
the United States at some former period.
But the presumption applicable to ovory
statute continues to prevail in the caso
of that or November li, 1891, namely that
it lays down a rule of conduct for the
future but makes no change iu the rights
already acquired or conditions already
established. He concludes from those
promises ''that this third paragraph of
section 2 of tho act of November 3, 1893,
Is to bo regarded as wholly perspective
in its operation and as applying exclusively to ..Chinese merchants who
came into the United states for the first
time, since November 3, 1898, and having
carried on business here afterwards
leave the country and sock to return.
Merchants already hero, when tho
statu to took effect, may leave the
country aud return as if the act of
November 3, 1893, had not beon passed."
Tariff Schedules.
Washington, D.C., May Hi.���Tho progress mado on tho Tariff Bill in the
Senate to-day was not so satisfactory as
that made yesterday, but owing largely
to the fact that several hours time was
consumed on the delivery of a speech by
Mr. Uallinger (Hop.), New Hampshire,
whicli he described as "accurate historical analysis of American legislation
on tho subject since the day when tho
Pilgrims put their feet on Plymouth
Rock." llo had only got to tho Polk
election in 1844, when he yielded the
floor with the purpose of continuing the
subject hereafter. Mr. Dubois (Rep.),
Idaho, followed in a short speech In
which be expressed his preference to
have the bill passod promptly rather
than the tariff question loft undecided,
and decided that the highest and most
looking i stable prosperity would coino only when

boing removed and will have an extension
made to it. Some time ago au extension
of wool was made with view of increasing steering facilities. It proved successful and extension will now bo made
of metal. One of the bost posted engineers in yard says talk of faulty plates
in Monterey is all buncombe. At the
timo she was being hurried in construction for trial trips, two plates not considered at tho timo quite up to the high
standard required by tho Government
wore fastened to expedite matters. The
Government knows just where they aro

Tho Bureau of Yards and   Docks has
required of Chief  Engineer Maxson an
estimate of the amount necessary to invest for inner sections of granite in stone
dock,   Mure   Island,   on   each   sido   of
caisson.    This  change   has   boon   suggested by naval engineers who have, boon
studying since building of now Improvements   in   docking   at   different    navy
yards.   Change   is   imperatively necessary for reason that it has   beon  found
from investigation that it would be impossible to dock at this yard one of our
lino of battleships because of her beam.
Order came to yard during visit of Sec-
rotary Herbert.   He at once asked for
plan of required change and expressed
opinion that it should bo made.
Emerald Smuiitllcrs.
San   Francisco,   Cal.,   May    10���The
trial ol the Emerald smugglers In tho
U. S. District Court is rapidly drawing
to   a   close.    Louis  Grconwald,  one of
men   charged  with conspiring with the
other defendants to smuggle opium and
Chinese into this port,  was   recalled   to
tho   stand   today   and   eross-oxamindu.
The U. S. Attorney questioned him closely on his transactions  and  associations
with Wichinan, another of the smugglers.
In   response   to   a  question Greenwald
said that in 1800 he sailed from Victoria,
to   Honolulu   on   a  vessel, tho name of
which lie could not remember.   " Was
not that vessel the Halcyon," asked the
U.  S.   Attorney.    Attorney Knight for
tlie  defence,   objected.    "We   are   not
trying   the   Halcyon   smuggling  ring,"
said Knight, " and 1 object  to having it
brought into  the caso"   Judge Morrow
overruled the  objection, but advised the
I'. S. Attorney to stick  to  the   caso   in
question.   The  witness  said  that the
vessel was not the Halcyon, but he
could not recollect the. name. He said
lie, stayed in Honolulu only a few weeks
and then cume lo this city on the summer Mouowni. " Did you not go to Hong
Kong, from Honolulu, before coming to
this city, on the same vessel that you
went, from Victoria to Honolulu?" asked
tlie Attorney for the government, and
tbe  witness  replied   In   tho  negative.
Although the government Attorney endeavored bv sever il questions tq got tho
witness to admit Bome connection with
the linlcyuii. Greenwaldparrled his interrogations like an Old bund on the witness stand.

The time has |
come, he said, when the Welsh members j
of Parliament are unable to give thoir
unswerving support to the Government. I
The Welsh Disestablishment   Bill  was a I
miserable measure which no loyal Welsh-
man could accept as anyway satisfactory,
in fact, no Government dependent on the
Welsh vote would have dared to introduce it if tho Welsh party showed an
united and determined front. The
Government had not dealt fairly with
the bill ovon such as it was. Much had
boen said about giving it priority to
other bills and the Ministry had promised
to hasten Its passage. Nevertheless it
had to ho relegated to the tenth place
on the Ministerial programme. The
Welsh must no longer march tamely at
the Government's command. Thoy must
tako a leaf from tho book of tho Irish,
and observe strict independence instead
of an unprofitable and discreditable
servility. Mr. Lloyd-George's most violent lunges at tho Ministry wero received
With loud cheering. The other speakers
of the evening were the Welsh members
of Parliament, Frank Edwards, David
Thomas and John Herbert Lewis. All

millions of people of tho United States
and said that thoy were issued only in
the interests of speculators in farm products, llo supplemented his speech
with a motion to strike out the appropriation for the gathering of the information contained In these reports and
their publication, but whicli failed of
adoption. A largo part of tho afternoon
was devoted to a discussion of tbo distribution of seeds by the department of
agriculture and, after a vigorous light
by Pickler of South Dakota, Kay of New
York, and Wilson of Washington, an
increase of (530,000 was made in tho appropriation for this purpose ovor the
amount recommended by tho committee
in tho bill. A bill was passed validating

The Conference.
Cleveland, Ohio, May 10.���The Conference Committee of operatives and
miners mot this afternoon and discussed
the situation. In answer to the proposition of the operators for a scale of
On cents for Pennsylvania and 58 for
Ohio, president .lohn McBride presented
the proposition of tho minors which was
the scale of last year, 79 cents for Pcnn
sylvania and all other sections to be, adjusted on that basis. This should make
the Ohio rate 70 cents. The conferos
fi'nm tlie uperu tors were not authorized
to accept this proposition and the miners
refused to bear the other rate. After
sovoral hours of fruitless discussion tho
committee adjourned to meet again tomorrow morning before the joint convention shall assemble.

New Vork. May 16���Particulars of an
| interesting race among ships and a dis-
j puted wager on it. have just boon  recoi-
I veil in this city.   A Maine ship-master is
I the principal, and the wager Is 8500.  On
| Nov. 88 the three big sailing ships Belle
; of Hath, Polseidon, and lrby sailed togo-
I thor from Astoria,  Ogn.,  on the 14,000
1 mile voyage to Groat Britain.  The Belie
Of Bath, the only American ship of tho |
I throe, Is   a   wooded   vessol of 1347 tons,
and commanded by dipt. Charles Curtis.
I Tha Polseidon and lrby aro both British I
[ships, the  former  1708 tons and hailing I
from  Glasgow,   the   latter a Liverpool"!
| craft of 1430  tons.   The Yankeo, alth-l
ough slightly the smallest of tho three!
was known to be a  smart  sailor.   The I
Bollo  of Bath was bound for Cork, the!
Poiseidon for Livorpool, and the lrby fori
Fleetwood,   Eng.    Beforo   sailing  from!
Oregon   Capt.   Curtis   mado awagorofl
S500,   with   each   of tho captains of the I
other ships, that ho would arrive at his I
destination   lirst.      ills  ship   however!
arrived at  Cork on April 19. while thai
Poiseidon   had    reached   Liverpool   on!
April   17,  safely  winning her captain's!
prize.   The   lrby   sailed   up Fleetwoodl
harbor  on   the   day   the Bello of Bathl
reached Cork, and that is how tho dis-f
puto aroso.   The terms of the bot wore!
not as to which should arrive first, butT
as  to   which   would make tho quickest]
passage.    Capt.   Rookes,  of  tho  IrbyJ
said   that, as ho had to go so much furj
titer the Channel than Capt. Curtis, and
arrived at Fleetwood just us soon as the!
Hello of Bath arrived at Cork, he madq
tho quickest passage, and  is justly entll
tied  to  the monoy.   Capt. Curtis holds]
that   as   the   ships   arrived In port tho]
sumo day, the race was a draw and thil
wager should be declared off.    Tho   del

They have one code of ethics in the former instance and another In the latter.
They must evidently believe that those

make, and the evidence taken
therein, will appear by the record of tho
proceedings of the Commission, wliich
we have the honor to submit herewith.
lt will be seen from the notes of evidence, that though full notice was given
uf tho timo and placo of sitting, and
also, in our opinion, a sufficient Intimation that the reasonable expenses of witnesses would be recouped to them
through the Commissioners, no one has
thought lit to appear In support Of tho
Tho only person from whom we have
received any assistance in this dlretlon
has boon tho Hon. Robert Beavon,
M.P.P., who, though not responsible for
making the obarges brought forward
some facts upon which be suggested the
absentee accusers might have relied,
Those wore : First, irregularity iu
acting upon the statute of 1893 before it
had actually boon brought Into force,
which could only bo dono by an Order-in-
But this seems though an irregularity,
to be quitu inadequate to support the
charge of corruption against the Minister
The Statues of 1893 was brought into operation by anOrder-ln-Council almost immediately afterwards. The whole transaction lias been confirmed and ratified
by the Statues of 1804 and the irregularity, so far from demonstrating that the
Minster was then the agent of the Company, points distinctly in ' the opposite
direction, since it would have been the
lirst caro and duty of such an agent to
seo that everything was in order.
And secondly; Mr. Heaven pointed out
tbat in tlie opinion of many persons tlie
undertaking which the Statute of 1804
imposed upon the Government, in Ilou of
that under the Statute of the tormer yoar,
was so manifestly disadvantageous, that
it was to be inferred that it could only
have boon introduce! and supported,
through corrupt motives; though it must
be added that ho did not make such a
It does not follow of course, that a
bad bargain must be a corrupt bargain.
An honest Minister, with no motive or
desire except to serve his Province,
might make a mistake. We do not wish
to suggest for a moment that any such
mistake has occurred in the matter into
which we have been enquiring. On the
contrary wo think that under the evidence adduced, and tho arguments addressed to us, only one conclusion Is
open to us, and that is that the arrangement for the construction of tho Nakusp
& Slocan railway, which was ratified by
tho act of 1894. is more advantageous to
the Province than the arrangement contemplated by the Act of 1893, and wu
have had no difficulty in arriving at this
conclusion. But however that may bo,
on the issues more directly submitted to
us by the Commission, thoro is we think
no room for doubt, and we find as follows, that is to suy :
Firstly: That tlie Honorable tho Pre-
bottor abandon" j mler of the  Province,   in   advising the
which     glitters \ guarantees mentioned in  thn said Commission, did not work for tho Company,
but worked for the Province;

newspaper men in the audience take

Curtis, Ills Worship the Mayor and
Chairman Wilson of the Central Corn-
toe wero invited to the front, after
which Aid. Keary explained the objects of the meeting In a happy, manner
and then callod upon Hon. Theo. Davie
to adress the audience and let tho young
men hear his ideas and opinions regarding tho political situation,
The Premier on rising; was given a
rousing reception. lie thanked tho
audience for the unmistakoable exhibition of good will, and said: I think tho
last time I had the honor of addressing
you in tliis hall 1 referred to the contrast
between now and a year ago, and although then I felt fairly confident that
bv tbe introduction of good measures
there would be brought a solid phalanx
to the ranks of the stable Government
in this Province, yet oven in my most
sanguine moments I did not think I
would be surrounded bv such strength
as I am now. (Cheers.) In Westminster, Mr. Curtis, your late mayor, has
conic forward; in Vancouver the mayor
is a candidate, together witli two other
prominent citizens, and in the ridings
tbe Govern ment candidates will give a
good account of themselves. When 1
see there is a determination on the part
of tho electors to frown down chicancory
and a desire to uphold the true interests
of liritish Columbia, I am gratified
beyond measure. We lind that in different placos there are organizations for
tbo support of the Government that are
growing and gaining strength day by
dav. and it is useless on the part of our
opponents to try and belittle them. In
the Opposition newspapers, which havo
soon lit ti* adopt a policy of untruth,
some of the strongest organizations are
referred to in tones of contempt, Mv
object to-night is to address the young
men of this placo. It is a hopeful sign
of the times to see those bright, honest
follows taking their places in politics,
for the day is past when only septuagenarians have a right to take part in
such matters. That day is ovor and you
will lind In all parts of the world that
voung men are coming to the front.
This was particularly drawn to my attention on a recent visit to New York,
when I was surprised to find that most
of the business of that city was curried
on by men not yet 4o years of age. In
saying that the lime is over when only
old men can occupy responsible positions,
I am not saying aiiything to the detriment of thoso whose experience is always
valuable, but tho young mind is active
and more capable of taking charge of
things where memory and energy tire
required, and where the best faculties
of tho brain can ba brought into requisition. When we get older we havo to
feed upon what we have learned in our
younger days. Youth is tlie time when
the best results ol our whole life cart be
obtained. The young, therefore, should
always be encouraged to take a foremost
position in public affairs, It is difficult
to say upon which side of the divide between young and old I would be counted.
1 feel young yet and able to meet any
obstacle that may come along. (Cheers.)
Although I am on the shady side of 40,
and''not so young us I used to be," I
cannot help thinking tbat our opponents
have made a mistake iu not bringing
tlie young men Into the ranks us well us
by trying to belittle them. Iu the Columbian I notice where they have boon
sneering al you and the young men of
New Westminster,    Nuw, while in tbe
article referred to they lire disregarding
truth, they arc also disregarding common sense atid showing a Want  of   tact.
An organization like this is entitled to
the greatoBt respect, as it is composed of
the rending and thinking men of the
place���for young men nre essentially
readers aud their spare time is spent lu
reading both sldos of a case.   Ami It is
rending men thai the successful party in
this campaign will have to secure.
(Cheers.) There is a broad distinction
between tbe parties that nre now seeking tlie popular vote, and the dividing
line between thom may bn said to be
tho same as divides a thoughtful reading
people and an Impulsive poople, There
is no such thing as cohesion on their
side. Government support Is a question
of the support of principles. Once it
Govornment goes away from the principles wliich it lias been carrying out. of
honesty and uprightness, then you should
desert it. It is principles, not men, thut
you are to support. (Applause.) We
find that there is no such thing as cohesion of principles, at least, in the Opposition ranks, in the country they have,
one platform they dare not show in tho
city; and in the city tliey have another
which It would never do to show In the
country. Over at Nanalmo thoy have
a platform that I have no fear you over
saw in the Columbian.   They bave what
they call a reform or workinginan's platform In  Nanaimo  and  got  up   by   tbo
miners' trades union, etc., and tbey have
brought ont  men  in  opposition  to  tbe
principles of tbo Government in support
of this plat torm.   Over there the  island
railway has a great deal to do  with  tbe
thing.     To  build  it���a  railroad   of   70
miles���besides a large land grant there
was given a big sum  of  money   by   the
Dominion Government.    Somo are  trying to make capital out of this   road,
forgetting that it was   the   vory   party
that is now trying to get into powor that
gave away the land and formulated the
first arrangement in regard to tho rail
way.   Mr. Beaven was then a
of tho party.   The Smitho  administration thon came into power, and to it the
Only redeeming feature of tho wholo arrangement is due.   There is not a groat
quantity of good  land  along  the  road,
but had it not been for the Smitho Government what there is would not ye.thave
been open for settlement. However, that
road'ls going behind to-day, and tho Columbian has never told you that the  Opposition platform in Nanaimo calls for
Its purchase by   the   Governmont,   although it would cost fully 88,000,000, and
whon purchased  would   nol  be  able  to
pay its way.   That is tbe platform thoy t
arc running over there.     In  Vancouver;
they have a Nationalist platform, vastly
different to that in Nanaimo.    The  lirst I
clause In   this  platform   is   Unit   thero|
should be no prolit out of labor except to
the  workingnutn,   which   means   there
would be no encouragement to use capi-'
tnl if the capital were not to havo any
profit,    Consequently when you say that
no ono must make money out of labor
except the laborer himself you make it;
Impossible to develop the country.   The j
second clause culls for representation by
population, and hence the clause has only
to be read to the outlying districts���that
justly    deserve    representation-to   bo;
scouted.    Tho Columbian ingeniously got j
over this difficulty  by   repudiating   tho
Nationalist platform recently,  but here i
is a clipping from itsissueof March '.'8th, ]
which shows that It, with the rest of the
Opposition, had adopted   the plank.    It'
paid to do so in the city   and so it was ]
adopted.    Hut thoy had to deny il when j
it got to the country districts.    There is
no trouble at all therefore in defeating I
the Opposition with words out   of  their!
own mouths.    (Cheers.)    I suppose they |
have a different platform of  their own |
id this city also.   Thev have one in Vic-1
toria.    And so, what   with   tho various i
aggregations it  is  a   pretty   discordant
party.    No doubt they huve au  idea of
having a coalition of platforms make one
grand whole. The Government has principles whicli call for protection  to capital and labor alike���work for the  work-
Ingman and.good wages and to render tu
capital what is  its  due.    (Cheers.)    All
the meetings I have attended  have been
successful   Iii   overy   respect    notwithstanding the statements to the contrary
appearing In the Opposition  papers.    It
is their plan to make the. people  believe
Unit there is jost a little  coterie of vou
who are in favor of the Government, and
that you had bettter go over to the other
side and be among   tho   winners.    The
fact of the matter is thoy are whistling
to keep their courage  up.     (Loud 'applause.)    Thoy know that the common
sense of the country is supporting   us
and they hope  to  frighten   the   peoplo
from voting for the  principles of   good
government by assuring them  that   tho
present Administration is not going  In
again.      Yes,   there   is   nothing   more
absurd than the policy  which   onr   opponents are disclosing   to   capture   the
Workingmen.   Now  many of the latter
do think, despite the evident   belief   of
our opponents to tho contrary, and they
see that it is just this kind of thing that
is causing hard times all over tho world.
Hard times are not caused by   want  of
money but by want of confidence on  the j
part uf those who have money.     It   Is ;
the   samo   in   Britain,   in   the United I
Slates, all ovor, in   fact.     What   with I
the  silver   problem,   and    other    pro-1
posed reform questions,   and  Coxeyism
being fostered in Washington, the capi-1
tulist thinks communism is coining and j
holds on  to   his   bunk   book   to  avert J
threatened disaster.    You will find  that
if liritish Columbia returns the  present
Government to power capital will grow
more confident: there will bo good times
once more (cheers), for pooplo will thou
see that this is a place where the  rights
of men are respected,  no   matter  what
there class or calling Is.     (Hoar,  hear.)
The present credit of British Columbia Is
second to none, notwithstanding the unpatriotic efforts of tho Opposition to traduce it and destroy  it abroad.   In the
Royal Commission on the  mutter  of tbe
Nakusp & Slocan railway Mr. Van Home
corroborated every statement 1  made  in
tbe Legislative Assembly, and swore upon oath tbat tbe change, from tho original
statutes was made at liis suggestion and
he showed that It had saved the country
hundreds of dollars.    It was, he  said, a
change from un Impracticable to u practical scheme and the most advantageous
to the country.     Read  the  proceedings
of the Royal Commission and  then your
minds will be  satisfied.     Head  the proceedings, but do not lake it for grunted
that what   yuu   see   in   the Opposition
papers is true.   Their only stock In trade
is pulling the wool over  people's  oyes.
Mr. Heaven was the  only  one  at   the
Commission  of    tbe  Opposition   party
and ho did not ask a witness a solitary
question,     but     simply     repeated     the
old stock arguments whicli have boen
explained time and ��� time again, lie
said he wtis not a lawyer nnd did
nut know how to cross-examine a witness. I never said that the Government
"would not pay a dollar" towards the ox-
peuses of tbo Commission.     There   have
been Royal Commissions before and tho
cost has always been paid by tho Government, lt is absurd to say thut I suid
anything of the sort. Mr. Beaven's Government bud a Royal Commission und
paid the expenses of it. lie knew that
as well as anyone. Can yuu Imagine a
mure flimsy excuse thun to say that 810
was not provided to pay Korsler's expenses us a proposed witness on tho
other side. Had the Governmont refused to do Unit there would have been
a case against them right there. The
people of tlie country to a man would
have rightfully condemned the Government. Do you think tlie Opposition
would not huve taken advantage of such
on\!^nmcnrar;o^knowv Excitement in Congress Over

There is a great deal of dissatisfaction
with the way in which the matter is

the question us to whether tbe fisheries
are the property of tlie Province or tho

may rest assured the Province will be

Steamer Connection Desired.
A public meeting was held at Hall's
Prarie'on Wednesday evening May Oth
to consider what action (if any) should be
taken by the ratepayers of Ward 5 of the
Municipality of Surrey to encourage and
support tho proposed Steamer connection
between Victoria, Vancouver and W.liite.
Rock Surrey.
A requsition had been circulated in the
ward, and signed by some eight or ten
ratepavcrs requesting Coun. Johnson to
convei.c a public meeting for the above
purpose. Coun. Johnson accordingly arranged for tbe meeting to be held in the
schoolhouso on the above date, tlie time
gieven for the meeting being 8 oclock. by
that time between no and 40 persons had
assembled. They waited very patiently
until 8.30 and then us neither Coun. Johnson nor anyone else appeard with the
key to open the scboo,house, Mr. Moggridge called thoso present to order, and
said us it was getting dark and no prospects of obtaining admittance to the
scboolhoiise. Hit were the wish of the
company to adjourn to the Belle Meade
farmhouse and hold the meeting there all
would be welcome to do so.
The question being submitted was carried ununiiously. and all walked across
to the farmhouse.
Mr. Moggridge wns elected ehaiuinan,
with Mr. Cole us vice chairman.
Mr Moggridge explained the objod nt
the meeting in a very forcible manner,
and showing tbe urgent necessity fur an
outlet to the Market of tbe Province, for
tho settlement in iin- southwestern portion of the Mainland, lie belolvod that
some of the gentlemen present bud been
in correspondence with parties, who were
favorably disposed to putting ou ti steamer connection as outlined above.
He would request II. T. Thrift to state
hisviewson the matter. Mr Thrlftspoke
at some lcnth on the Importance, to not
only ward 5 Surrey, but, to a greater or
lesscxtent the whole corporation would
bo benefited, together with the strip of
country known as the two & half mile
belt and the southern portion of Langley.
for wliich Whito Rock was the natural
outlet or shipping place. He had, had considerable correspondence with a number of parties in regard to this connection and meetings bad been held in several places with the object of ascertaining tho views of the people in the matter and present and prospective amount
of traffic that would be available. The result had been verv gratifying, in all
places the people were anxious to improve their opportunities for reaching
the markets of the Province and assist
to their utmost in the development of
their settlement. In making enquiries
he found that there was not ono-
twontiet.h part of the available agricultural land occupied und brought under
cultivation, this state of affairs being
iarglcy due to the fact that settlers had
no encouregement, to clear np and improve their lands, as if large quantities
of produce were raised the people could
not get to ;i market through utter in���
acccsability. That if we secured this
connection it would be. the means of
bringing in a desirable class of settlers,
the pioneers would be enabled to dispose
of their surplus lands, nnd instead of the
settlers struggling tilling in an bund to
mouths style our country would be developed and the peoplo contented and
Mr. D. R. McElinon addressed the
meeting at some length showing the accessibility of White Rock for a shipping
point from nearly all partsof Surrey and
the two&half mile belt, lie was very
much In favor of theproject, Mr. Shields
A. Bamford. A. Cameron W. MeMenemy
Jit/.iier, A. .1. Annand, li. Kirby and
others addressed the meeting iu the same
Resolutions were passed supporting
the project and thanking Messrs Thrift
&McElmon for tlioir endeavors on behalf
oi tlie settlers to secure the desired Steamer connection. A committee composed of
Messrs Kirby, Annand and Thrift were
appointed to draft a petition to the Government requesting tbem to open a road
on the section lino cither one or two
miles North of boundtry to enable the
settlers in the two_half mile, belt to
reach the wharf at White Roek, also a
resolution requesting the Surrey Council to repair and improve the Campbell
River road west from the Hall's Prairie
road to the wharf at White Rock. The,
meeting was brought to a close by a vote
of thanks to the Chairman.
