RIVER NAV1GAI0N
AIDS CONSTRUCTION
Clearing of Prince George Town-
site and Building of Docks
Now in Progress-The
Fraser River Bridge.
Now that the season of navigation
has opened again, the activity in
railroad construction here will soon
become marked. The work on the Indian Reservation, now the Prince
Oeorge townsite, is proceedingly actively. Tbe group of islands, which
were in dispute some time ago, has
been purchased by the Grand Trunk
Pacific railway, and the work of
joining them to the mainland is all-
ready well advanced. The channel
which, separated these Islands trom
the mainland has been cut off by a
filled cribbing, and the smaller channels are being cut oft in like manner.
Work on the docks, which are located opposite the eastern end ot
the big cut-bank, a short distance
up-stream from the head ot the
islands, is well advanced. These
docks are being made by filling a
cribbing .which extends into the
river. Lumber is being, delivered at
the same location for the construction of the Foley, Welch and Stewart
headquarters, work on which has
commenced.
The work ot clearing the reservation has commenced, and several subcontractors are already clearing the
land on the northeastern section of
the townsite. Contractor Macpherson
who ls clearing the townsite, is now
building his camp and offices on the
eastern end of the reserve, at the
foot of the hill.
The grade on the cleared right-of-
way through the Prince Qeorge site
is growing daily. From the cribbing
work, which protects the grade at
the north eaat corner ot the Fort
George townaite, where the line enters the heavy cut across the face
of that townaite area, the dump-oar
tracks have been laid eastward for
about a thousand feet. A shallow
cut is being put through across a
ridge in the centre of the townsite,
and near the Fraser river another
higher ridge has been cut through,
and the dump shoved across a shallow slough on a short trestle.
Work on tbe bridge contract across
the Fraser river should commence aa
soon as the contractors for this
work, the Bates-Rogers Construction Company, can get their men and
material on the ground from up the
river. The preliminary work on thla
bridge will start immediately. At
Mile 142 this firm has completed the
abutment work on the Fraser River
crossing, and already have one span
in place. They are delivering cement
at steel head now In preparation for
the work on the big bridge here.
ThiB bridge work will employ a
large torce of men for many months.
They will be camped on the Fraser
river.
Ranchers in this district have already planted thetr crops for the
season, and garden truck, planted
during the past few weeks, is already
well grown, The nights have been a
trifle chilly recently, but the days
make up for thia by the radiance of
the sunshine and the warmness ot the
gentle zephyrs trom the south.
on-that ln the near future, but that
at present every effort is being concentrated ln completing the road'
through British Columbia. The construction ot the. new concrete dock
is also to be started ln conjunction
with the laying out of the terminals.
These works will involve an expenditure of many millions of dollars,
and will require nearly two ytara to
complete; which means that they will
be finished about the tlmt tht steel
ls latd across the province.
The Timet article states, tbat in
answer to questions about Prince
George, ht intimated that thtre waa
not to be a station at either of tht
present townt htre.
THIRTY MILLIONS ID
RE SPENTTHIS YEAR
Thirty million dollars will be expended by the Grand Trunk Pacific
Railway in new equipment to man its
newly-completed transcontinental
railway from Moncton to Prince Rupert, and the fact that the Grand
Trunk Pacific is an offshoot of the
.parent Grand Trunk road of Eastern
Canada* saves the former company
from an even more enormous initial
expenditure for new equipment to
operate the transcontinental. As it is
the company can borrow equipment
from the parent road it it runs suddenly short, and thus it is enabled
to figure on a minimum requirement
and not on a fairly maximum one.
With its extensive programme ot
3560 miles of main line, stretching
trom end to end of the continent,
and with the still more extensive
programme of 5000 miles of branch
line track the Grand Trunk Pacific
will be requiring almost unimaginable amounts of new rolling stock
within a few years. At the present
time the company has barely sufficient rolling stock to man the divisions now being operated, viz., 3025
miles of track, and even it the opening ot the transcontinental were not
less than two years away the company would still have to make large
additions to the service.
A summary of the new equipment
that will be needed to operate the
main and branch lines to be operated
by the time the transcontinental is
completed is given as follows: Locomotives, (Grand Trunk Passenger),
40; engines, freight, 35; sleeping cars,
35; first-class coaches, 35; tourist
coaches, 100; dining cars, 40; observation cars, 45; mail coaches, 30;
baggage coaches, 30; express coaches,
30; box cars, 30,000.
The officials ot the company have
not got down to anything like final
figures on general freight car increases likely to be required. It is
practically settled that) 30,000 new
box cars will be required to take
care of the business. A rough estimate Indicates that 700 stock car's,
1000 flat cars, 300 cabooses and 1000
ballast cars will be required by the
company, but this number is not definitely fixed.
Steam shovels to the number ot a
dozen wrecking cranes tor every
second division, coaling trains for
the larger stations, pile drivers, ditchers and other Implements necessary
to run a railway are being planned,
and will be included in tbe big
orders soon to be placed.

MAKES APPEAL TO
JAPANESEjNYESTORS
Japanese Resident Says Advertisement Is Misleading—Most
Distant of All the Subdivisions.
The Continental Daily News, a
Japanese newspaper, published in
Vancouver, carries in a recent issue
a full page advertisment of the Fort
George townsite property known as
Hodgson's addition.
This property is being sold by the
Natural Resources Security Company
Ltd., and is offered to the Japanese
at prices ranging from $225 tor inside lots, to $550 for double corners.
This addition appears to us to be
the least valuable of all the speculative townsites put on the market
by the Natural Resources Security
people. It extends further Into the
pine woods to the west of Prince
George than any other site.
What the page advertisment says
about the property we are unable to
state, but as It is written, in the peculiar characters of the Oriental
language, and defies the intelligence
ot tbe English race, and witb tew
exceptions," it could contain all sorts
of extravagant statements and get
by without comment.
A Japanese Informant, has communicated to us tbe fact that the
advertisment is misleading, and that
lt quotes from that invaluable organ
ot Fort George values, the Fort
George Tribune.
NEW BUSINESS FIRM
Messrs. Gross and Buchel, of the
Fort George Hardware Company,
have purchased the interest of Mr.
A. G. Hamilton In the concern. The
Fort George Hardware Company has
proved one ot the most useful businesses ln the town during the time
it has been in existence. It Is one ot
our only manufacturing businesses.

Postoffice Department Not
Opposing "Prince George*
The Fort (Jeorge Tribune last week published an alleged
press dispatch from Ottawa which stated that the Postoffice
Department would oppose the registration of .the name, Prince
George. The Herald, on investigating the matter, received the
following conclusive message from Postoffice Inspector Greenfield, Vancouver:      . ,..,*. :>,
', "  Vancouver, May 1,1913.
I am not, aware of any action having been taken,>;_
by the Postoffice Department opposing registration, -
of name Prince George* for Grand Trunk Pacific
.tewnsite. *    JOHN Rv GREENFIELD.
The opposition to the registration of the name, Prince George*
comes from the townsite promoter-tffl'ho own the name, Fort
George, their employees, their newspapers, and their hired
help generally. The actual citizens of Fort George itself, who
are represented in the outside press as being in a furore of indignation at the proposed change of namt,liWV)t exhibiting
any signs which lend color to this rumor from Vancouver. It
probably emanated from the townsite promoters themselves.
The Herald takes this opportunity to ask the people of Fort
George not to permit themselves to be made dupes of in this
matter. The most bigoted supporter of the "interests" which
are stirring up false reports of the situation in the coast press,
will admit to themselves that the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway
have a perfect right to name their townBite Prince George if
they wish to do so. It can only have been assumed ffom the
very beginning that the railway company would ever use the
name, Fort George, in these parts, It has to be admitted that
the prosperity and future development of these towns depends
largely upon the development scheme of the railway concern.
It would, therefore, appear to be unwise to ..participate in an
attempt to prevent the railway company from creating a town
which they wish to create by endeavoring to force upon them
a title which they do not wish to use.       ,
South Fort George Joins With
Railway Company in Resisting
Attempt of Townsite Concern
to Move Depot Site 2000 Feet
to the West.
The application of the Natural Resources Security Company Ltd., before the Railway Commission at Ottawa on the sixth instant, to move
the station grounds 2000 feet further
west on the Prince George townsite,
will be vigorously opposed.
The railway company will be represented by Mr. Biggar, their Chief
Counsel, and South Fort George,
which also opposes 'the proposed
change, will be represented by Mr.
A. E. Fripp, K. C, of .Fripp & McGee, Ottawa.
A strong • protest has gone forward
to the commission from tnts point,
to any change being made In the location of the depot as shown in the
maps published in The Herald.
Tbe present location of the depot
is deemed to be advantageous to
all. To move the location 2000 feet
further west, as askrd for by the
townsite company, who wish the
move made for the benefit of their
own flotations to tbe west of Prince
George, would throw the location
too close to the thin end of the
wedge shaped area lying north ot the
tracks, which is to be utilized 'by the
railway company for the site of
their yardage, and tracks. About Bve
thousand teet west of tbe location,
as shown on the present townsite
plans, and which is approved by all
interests excepting the Natural Resources Security Company Ltd., the
Une of the railway enters an open
cut. The application of the Natural
Resources Security Company, if it
were granted, would not only wedgo
the activity surrounding the depot,
at the western end ot the land reserved for station ground, but would
place it too close for convenience to
this cut, which ends the yardage
room.
It ls not considered at all probable
that the application of the townsite
concern will be granted.

Mr. McLaughlin met the men who are
making Edmonton the commercial
centre ot the middle Canadian west,
in the northern latitudes, and he
states that they are unanimous in
expressing their desire to build up a

FORT GEORGE HERALD
Published by the Northern Interior Printing Company, Limited
J. B. Daniell, President.
Devoted to the Interests of the Fort George District and the Northern
interior of British Columbia.
SuVsaipliu $3.00 a Year iu Advance
Advertising Rates oo Application
THE most casual perusal of the contemporary press of this
' l province reveals the fact that a subtle campaign, is being
directed, through certain of the province's daily newspapers,
against the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway, and more particularly
against that company's interests here.
Readers of The Herald are able to appreciate the desire of the
Grand Trunk Pacific Railway to distinguish their townsite by
name from the huge mass of incidental townsites which are piled
against the western border of their land. This reason is accentuated when it is remembered that the promoters of the outlying
subdivisions own, beyond peradventure, the sole right and title to
the use of the name Fort George.
Some years ago the provincial government accepted a townsite
plan for one of these groups of speculative subdivisions, and registered for its owners the name Fort George. This placed the
promoters of the subdivisions referred to in an enviable position.
They could proclaim their townsites, which owed their "raison
d'etre" to the importance of this point generally in the western
field of operations of the Grand Trunk Pacific railway, as the
"legal, registered townsite of Fort George," and this they did
with great gusto and fanfare of advertising trumpets.
Not content with this, the astute promoter behind the great lot-
selling game, sought to further wrest from the railway concern
the benefit of the future development work which would create
the importance of their future city, by trying to prevail upon the
Canadian Railway Commission to order the placing of the Grand
Trunk Pacific station, on the Indian Reserve which they had purchased for townsite purposes, at a point advantageous to them
and the mass of 25-foot lots.
The Grand Trunk Pacific Railway pursued the even tenor of
its way westward. It defeated the application of the over-
zealous real estate genius before the Railway Commission and
completed arrangements for placing the anticipated large and important townsite on the Indian reservation. As the steel closed
in upon the water routes which gave the railway access to the
Fort George territory through the Yellowhead Pass, the railway
company began to turn more attentively to these townsite
arrangements. A rumor became current last year that the G. T.
P. would call their town here by the name "Prince George," and
this was borne out when President Chamberlain made an official
announcement to this effect on January Ilth of this year.
This threatened to unsettle the importance which had surrounded the "legal, registered townsite of Fort George" and the
"interests" launched their army of scheming and lobbying
lawyers to circumvent this at all costs, At the same time the
"interests" wished to prepare for the worst, and on the 26th of
August, 1912, a certificate of incorporation was issued to a registered company at Victoria, B.C., bearing the name of "The
Prince George lownsite Company, Ltd.," the president of which
is our old friend, the promoter of the "legal, registered townsite
of Fort George."
For years the promoters of the incidental townsites aforesaid
have been plying the press of Vancouver and elsewhere with a
great advertising expenditure. This served a double purpose—it
•.sold the thousands of lots, and it assured the promoters of the
support of these abject journals. The eloquent protests which
have appeared bewailing the commercial sordidness ot the transcontinental railway company which dares to lay aside the historical name of Fort George, have been many. Simon Fraser, who
created the name of Fort George over a hundred years ago when
he founded the Hudson's Bay post here, was dragged to the front
by these sob-writers, and the sad, sad story of how the cruel railway sought to sidetrack his chosen name became an almost daily
feature of their "news." From this they passed to the terrible
confusion which they predicted the change would bring about in
the distribution of mail. The latter is highly amusing in consideration of the extraordinary mail service which the public have
had to put up with here in the past on account of the fact that all
mail addressed to the name by which this section is generally
known has gone to the little postoffice in "Fort George," and
under similar circumstances all the mail matter for the important
thousand-acre future town of the Grand Trunk Pacific will likewise have to be distributed from an office in the suburban subdivision of the legal registered name.
The Vancouver World, of all the coast papers, is most persistent in its campaign. On April 1st this moribund newspaper appeared with a vicious and unjustifiable attack upon the Grand
Trunk Pacific. Now, on the day that the matter referred to
appeared, did L, D. Taylor, proprietor of the World, sell to George
John Hammond, of the Natural Resources Security Co., Ltd.,
promoters of the Fort George townsites, fifteen thousand dollars'
worth of bonds in his newspaper?  We would like to know.
Incredible as it may seem, the organization of the subdividers
who have sold the thousands of lots in the Fort George townsites,
is so powerful and far-reaching that difficulty may arise in the
matter of the registration of the name "Prince George." It is
generally believed that the interest of the British Columbia government in the great'lot-selling game at Fort George is greater
than the ordinary reverted interest and, from the manner in
which certain members of the government have shown their
sympathy with the promoters, in instances, seems almost paterna'.
The independent interests here are of the opinion that the
Grand Trunk Pacific have saved the situation by creating the title
of Prince George. The name will be well applied to their future
city, for regrettable as it undoubtedly is to lose the ancient name,
the controversy which has raged around the twnsites identified
by that title have been so bitter and persistent, and the facts
adduced of such a nature that it is largely believed that the best
interests are served under the progressive policy of the railway
company,
from an exchange, without any comment:
When a duck lays an egg she just
waddles oil as if nothing had happened. When a hen lays an egg ther?'s
a whale ol a noise. The hen advertises. Hence the demand for hens
eggs instead of (luck's eggs.

ji, io. I). McTaggart presented a
number of technical grounds, but his
lordship overruled all of them but
one. That one wus that the act provides that an accused person must
have thc option of a fine.
"J claim that the conviction iB invalid then," said Mr. McTaggart.
In a case like this I do not feel
like quashing a conviction. I think
the Summary Conviction Act allows
rae to make an amendment and I
will amend the conviction to allow
a line," said his lordship, who commented on the seriousness of a man
taking two trunks full of whiskey

Subsequently Hooper viae fined $300

Mr. B. D. McTaggart, who appealed the case for Hooper, wanted the
sentence quashed or a light sentence
imposed.
"Nothing of the kind. I will give
him the maximum the law allows me
to," replied Mr. Justice Murphy. "I
think it is a serious matter for a
man to have two trunks full of whiskey in a construction camp. It leads
to murder in the wilds and all
kinds of trouble. You should live
there for a while, as I have done, to
find out what it means*. If I am
wrong, the court of appeal can set
me right."
"Unfortunately, there is no appeal

What We nave w e tium
FORT FRASER, Central British Columbia, has the ideal
townsite location on the entire line of the Grand Trunk
Pacific Railway in British Columbia. *    :       :      :       :
It has also many natural resources and advantages not possessed by other townsites.
It has a sparkling lake of fifty square miles of fresh water. Tremendous hydro-electric
power being developed at its very door. The largest tract of agricultural land to be found
in British Columbia. A healthful and ideal climate both summer and winter. One thousand
miles of navigable waters reach to and from Fort Fraser. .
These Are Advantages Which Cannot be Taken Away
Again, it is a natural distributing centre for a vast territory, and with the incoming of the
Grand Trunk Pacific, Pacific & Hudson Bay Railway and other contemplated lines, its future
as one of the coming cities of Western Canada is assured.
FORT  FRASER
is already a good lively town with Government office, telegraph office, postoffice and various
lines of trade already established there.
Lots can be obtained at from $200.00 upwards with cash deposit of 10 per cent, cash, and
5 per cent, monthly without interest or taxes.

ARREST op A ST. PETBRSBURGH
BANKER
Gorged With Fraud in Russia and
Manslaughter in Spain. Interview   With  the   Two   -
Ambassadors
8omc "■onths ago, as our readers
ay remember, we referred ln these
oiumna to the great scandal caused,
°t. Petersburg, an in Russia gen-
a"y' by a noted Banker who ab-
JMed, leaving a deficit of over five
ulllllOl!
few days before arriving in London
be had quarrelled with another Russian, who was mortally wounded by
a revolver shot during the scuffle,
and who only lived long enough to
denounce his assailant.
In an interview with the Russian
Ambassador, it Beems that the name
he had been using In Bpain, and
which he gave on being arrested was
not his real one, Manasseina being
simply an alibi, but after comparing
the prisoner with photographs in his
possession, the Russian Ambassador
recognized him as Alexis Ivanovitch
the criminal banker who eloped with
5 millions of roubles; he is a native
of St. Petersburg, a widower 48
years old, with an only daughter
that he left in Spain on escaping
from that country.
On being arrested, two of Matfas-
senia's or Alexis Ivanovitch portmanteaus were seized but although
strictly searched nothing but personal effects were found in them, in
spite of which, the Russian Ambassador declares that prisoner ought to
have several million roubles somewhere.
The Russian and Spanish Ambassadors conferred yesterday evening
as to whether the prisoner should be
conveyed to Spain or to Russia, and
after an interview with the Home
Secretary, and in accordance with
the extradition treaty of England,
Russia and Spain, it was agreed
that the prisoner should be conveyed to Spain, to stand his trial for
manslaughter, and that only after
his trial can the Russian Oovernment ask Spain, through diplomatic
channels, for his extradition.
It is strange to relate that this old
"con" game js still."working out according to schedule for the promoters, A woman in New York was recently "stuck" for $4000 under the
circumstances described in the foregoing.
The police would do well to pursue
an investigation. Santanda, given as
the receiving address of the gang, is

Sir Arthur Oonan Doyle, creator of
"Sherlock Holmes" and Lade Conan
Doyle will pass several months in the
coast and prairie provinces early in
1914, making the Jasper Park, west
of Edmonton, their objective point,
being housed at Fitzhugh.
Lieutenant 8. Maynard Rogers,
superintendent of the park, made the
foregoing announcement ln Edmonton on returning from a stay ot a
month in the new national playground, which covers an area of 1,400
square miles, saying:
"We also exuect prominent men
and women from various parts ot
the world to visit the new wonderland in tbe northern Canadian Rockies as soon as the Orand Trunk
Pacific has completed its transcontinental system to Prince Rupert.
"During my* stay in the park, I
have seen quite a number of red deer
and mountain goats, and it is hoped
tbat by strict preservation of all animal and bird life within the rnrk,
visitors will be afforded increased facilities for shooting during the Albertan game season in the adjoining
district, the park being a sanctuary
for all kinds of game.
The staff at the park is now engaged in building a wagon trail to
Pyramid lake, one of the finest spots
ln the park, for the erection ot summer cottages.
Pyramid lake affords excellent fishing. Professor Prince, superintendent
ot dominion fisheries, has promised
to stock this and other takes ln the
park with fish that will thrive in
these waters, thus increasing the attractions for those desirous of pursuing this sport.       **
Tbe park contains numerous ideal
fishing resorts, with the purest of
water and a pleasant climate. The
noonday temperature during the first
three weeks of April was from 70 to
83 degrees ln the shade, with real
summer      conditions        prevailing
SUMMER EXCURSIONS
TO FORT M'PHERSON
Preliminary arrangements have
been completed In Edmonton and
Winnipeg for a series of summer excursions from tbe Albertan capital to
Fort Mcpherson, the most northerly
trading post on the McKenzie river,
which ls well within the Arctic circle. The midnight sun is to be seen
as plainly there as In the northern
seas. Other forts to be visited are
McMurray, Chippewyan, Smith, Resolution, Providence, Simpson, Wrlg-
ley, Norman and Oood Hope. Tbe
route to Fort McPherson ts the
same as that over which Valjhalmar
Stefannson, the explorer, will travel
on the way to the unknown hinterland, which ls cut off from the civilized world and the resources of modern life. The rail trip from Edmonton to Athabasca Is 98 miles, the
rest being by steamships down the
Athabasca river and lake. Great
Slave lake and the Mackenzie river.

Messrs. Jermyn & Bowles, one f
tbe latest of our business bouses,
received its stock of merchandise on
the boat yesterday.
The Steamer D. 0. Express, which
arrived here yesterday evening, carried about twenty tons of accumulated mall matter from below. A
great part of this matter Ir seed
oats.
"Andy" Forrest, Benning & Company, have actively started the work
of preparation for the installation of
a complete bottling works here. They
will supply aerated waters of all
descriptions. The concern has built
an office on Third Street here.
Mr. and Mrs. George E. McLaughlin, who have been enjoying a trip
in tbe east, were amongst the passengers on the first mail boat, arriving here Inst night. Mr. McLaughlin is back at his managerial desk ln
the Northern Lumber and Mercantile
Company here.
Messrs. Westoby & Adams, who recently opened a meat market on
Second Street, are progressive business men. They have named their
place of business the "Prince George
Meat Market." This Is certainly up-
to-date. This is the first business to
recognize the future name of the G.
T. P. townsite.
The local lodge of the I. 0. 0. F.
went to church last Sunday. The
Rev. R. H. I. Williams preached a
special sermon. St. Stephen's Church
was full to the doors. The Rev. Mr.
Williams left here on Monday for
Fraser Lake. In his absence the services will, with a few exceptions, be
conducted as usual.
"Bill" Manson, well known to all
old-timers in the Cariboo, arrived
here this week to take charge of the
work on the Improvement and construction of the Fort George-Stoney
Creek wagon road, under Superintendent Malcolm McNevin. Mr. Man-
son is still accompanied, wherever he
may go, by bis fox terriers.
New Westminister recently celebrated the fifty-first anniversary of tbe
death ot Simon Fraser, discoverer of
the Fraser River, who died at St,
Andrew's Ontario, on April 19, 1862,
A monument to commemorate tbe
life and work of Simon Fraser stands
in Alberta Crescent park in tbat
city. Simon Fraser founded the Hudson's Bay post here, on his voyage
of. discovery down the river which
now bears his name, over 100 years
ago. .
The Ice from the upper Fraser has
not yet entirely gone out, is a report
which reached here yesterday. Oap-
taln Busey, of tbe Steamer B. C. Express, who left Quesnel some weeks
ago for Tete Jaune Cache, by way
of Edmonton, to look over the river
on bis way down by canoe, is stalled
up the river, and, accompanied by
A, K. Bourchier, has had to walk
some of the distance between here
and the Cache on account of ice
Jams. When last heard from they
were at Mile 195, waiting for Frank
Freeman, the man who clearel the
channel through the Giscomb rapids,
to pilot them through and point out
the new channel. Below Mile 195,
near the Bear river, there /was a
large Ice Jam yesterday, and Captain
Busey'! and A. K. Bourchier were
waiting for a channel to open ln tbis
jam before tbey can come through ln
a gasoline boat. They are expected
here today.
To the soft cadence of one ot Mr.
Mendelssohn's dreamy waltzes, the
great social event of the present gay
season opened in the Fort George
Theatre last Thursday evening. The
occasion was the Baseball Dance,
held in the Fort George Theatre to
mark the opening of the Baseball
season. We will forbear the usual
small-town reportorial comment upon
the "charming gowns" and the "recherche supper" or "dainty repast"
which was served as the clock struck
twelve, because the gowns weren't
anything extra, and the supper ot
tbe usual "slt-and-grab" style, popular where the supper is served' in
the ball room, The whole affair was
one of the most enjoyable dances we
have ever attended, however, and It
reflects great credit upon tbe enterprising and energetic 'ball club, to
whom the function owed Its success.
Fnancially lt was all that could be
desired also, which fact further contributes to the greatness of the occasion. The Theatre was tastefully
decorated, and tbe Northern Interior
Amusement Company had added very
largely to the success of the affair
by having the floor cleansed of the
remains of the Wanderer's supper.
