but hia Lordship proceeded, I sect.iong and beautiful valleys that can
hardly be aurpsssed. It is different
from anything around Vancouver. It's
a splendid country for ranching—farming on a grand scale. At that, I saw
all kinds of small graden stuff growing
as prolific as you please, but it is a
country essentially of cattle and of fie
coarser feed products—just the kind of
country that is needed to back the
specialized fruit and vegetable districts
of the Okanagan and Lower Mainland.
The finest section I have ever seen in
British Columbia is that between Soda
Creek and Quesnel, 53 miles along the
Fraser river, beautifully situated and
abundantly productive. The best
slopes are in grass with the lanch cattle doing well in the summer range.
There is a fine succession of ranches
there; the Australian, for instance,
with great fields as level as billiard
tables. I did not have a chance to get
around the country much at FortGeorge,
but maty Vancouver people I met
there assured me lhat some of the very
best farming land in British Columbia
lay around Fraser Lake. Steamers are
now being built by the railway contractors to ascend the Nechaco and
they expect to carry supplios right to
Fraser Lake."
As to the wisdom of building the P.
G.E.-what do you think of lhat? Mr.
Tisdall was asked.
"I cannot speak to enthusiastically
in favor of it," was the reply. "Vancouver .people do not realize the splendid diversity of opportunity of trade
with the great northern section of
British Columbia. The P.G.E. will tap
the best of it. With the change of
route recently announced, the line after
passidg Lillooet, will skirt the Chilcoten district, pass Clinton and ascend
the rich Lac la Hache Valley. The
completion of the project means a tremendous advance for Vancouver.
"By the way, the captain of the.
steamer on which I traveled north from
Quesnel told me the water in the Fraser was the highest he had ever seen it.
What saved the lower country from
floods was that the nights were cold;
the melting of snow in the hot days
was equalized by freezing in the mountains at night.
Up towards Port George—the region
to be tapped by the Pacific Great Eastern Railway, now building—is a country big enough and rich enough to alone
support a city the size of Vancouver at
the outlet terminal of that railway
This conclusion has been reached by
Mr. Charles E. Tisdall, M.L.A., after
he has been over the ground and investigated for himself. As a businessman
doing a large trade with outlying towns
all through British Columbia, Mr. Tisdall travels a good deal to get his business knowledge at first hand. Two
8,11 weeks -spent in the Fort George trip
have made him enthusiastic about the
New North.
"It is a district of opportunity—not
only for the people in it, but for the
business men of Vancouver. At the
moment, this city has lost the Port
George trade to Edmonton, but that
condition is bound to be reversed when
the Pacific Great Eastern is finished
and perhaps much sooner," said Mr.
Tisdall to the Province today.
"Old Father Fraser, running bank
high and with menace of flood for the
lower country, is befriending Edmonton now and 'the northern merchants
are bending every energy to get in
great quantities of supplies. The G.T.
P. is finished west from Edmonton to
Tete Jaune Cache. From there to Fort
George is 315 miles and thousands of
tons of goods are being sent every day
over the flood. The stuff is put in
scows-not the decked-over barges we
have in the harbor here-but hollow
boats of the old Mississippi style with
oar sweeps over bow and stern. Av
scow of this kind' costs $200 and of
course makes only the one trip, for it
is impossible to get it back up river.
Four men are required to manage each
scow as it floats down with its 15 to 25
tons, the weight of cargo varying with
the kind of goods taken aboard. There
is so much danger at the Grand Canyon that the provincial police have taken a hand and do not allow boats to go
through with less than eight men
aboard,,so that the cost of transportation is again swelled because extra
men have to be hired here. Of course,
it is impossible to get insurance on
goods aboard these scows-the merchants have to take chances on their
arrival, and while no important losses
have yet been made, trouble may come
when the river lowers. As the matter
now stands the merchants claim that
even paying slightly Jiigher prices in
Edmonton than in Vancouver-for this
city enjoys better railway rates as an
ocean port-they can land their goods
cheaper in Fort Goorge from Edmonton than from Vancouver by way
of Ashcroft, over the Cariboo road and
up river by steamer. But I'm still
skeptical nbout it; the season is not yet
over aiid with losses in scow building,
perhaps some cargoes hung on sand
bars and wages at $8 to $10 per day to
boatmen, Vuncouver, with its lower
original prices may still bo found the
better place to buy in. In any event,
the advantage Edmonton now has in
water transportation* will puss away
when the Pacific Great Eastern is finished.

sites, is an ideal place for n city. 1

Arthur J. Pelkey, charged with
manslaughter in connection with
the death of Luther McCarty,
was adjudged not guilty, the jury returning a verdict last evening after an
hour's deliberation. There was a ripple
of applause in the courtroom when the
verdict was announced.
The case was tried before Chief Justice Harvey, and his lordship defined
for the first time what constitutes a
prize fight in the Dominion of Canada.
He held that an encounter with fists,
privately arranged for, was a prizefight, and was not permissable. His
interpretation of the statute, if it
stands, puts an end to all boxing contests in tho Dominion where the authorities arc inclined to interfere.
The verdict of the jury was to the
effect that the contest was a prizefight,
but the jury held against the belief
that Pelkey had inflicted ths blow
which dislocated the neck of his antag
onist. The jury, by its verdict, memorializes the Provincial Legislature to
pass n law defining specifically what
C institutes a prizefight, and prohibiting the staging of such contests in Alberta in the future.
His lordship objected to the jury's
recommendation, asserting that his
definition of the law and the decision
of the jury established a precedent and
made further legislation unnecessary.
His lordship abo informed Pelky that
had the jury adjudged him guilty he
would'have imposed no sentence on
him, as the case was more to test the
lew than to fix the guilt of the defendant.

[NDER the registration laws brought down in the provincial
parliament this year it is no longer possible to apply to any
parcel of land any particular name by the process of registring a
plan thereof with name appended as heretofore. Under the new-
law, for instance, a townsite cannot be registered under the name
desired. Townsite plans must be registered as sub-divisions of
district lots, and the matter of a name for these places lies between the owners and the postal authorities. We publish this information for the benefit of those of our readers who are apt to
be deceived by the advertisements of a notoriously nervy town-
site concern which is endeavoring to create the impression that
the G.T.P. will not be allowed to call their townsite on the old
Indian Reserve here by the name "Prince George," The G.T.P.
will use this name, and at a date not far distant the townsites
here will be generally referred to as the Grand Trunk Pacific town,
Prince George, The postoffice department, we are informed on
reliable authority, have approved of the name.
THE sentencing to death of the Indian outlaw Paul Spintlum
brings to a fitting close a typically western crime drama. It
is not good to rejoice in the passing of the death sentence upon
even the most abandoned of criminals, yet we feel that had Spintlum escaped the penalty of the murders of which he has been
convicted, the result would have been demoralizing to the work
of the provincial police amongst the Indians. Since the time when
the Indian Gun-a-noot at Hazelton, killed a man and successfully
escaped the vigilance of the law in the hinterlands, there has existed amongst the Hazelton Indians a certain insolence which, in
their inflamable minds might at any time find vent in violence
and murder. The same spirit would have prevailed had Spintlum
escaped the law. The days of the gun-fighter, the bad Indian and
the posse are slowly drawing to a close. Development and the
march of progress in the west leaves such dramatic, but deplorable features of primitive days in the traditions of the country
only, and when on occasion, as in the Clinton outrage, a man
harks back to the spirit of outlawry, and resists arrest by murder,
the outraged justice of a civilized country demands retribution.
And so a sordid tragedy comes to an end. Poor Kindness, the
brave young constable who was murdered lies in an honored
grave, and his murderer stands in the shadow of the gallows.
(From Toronto Saturday Night)
It seems evident that the clash between the Grand Trunk Pacific and ''Hammondaille" is far from being terminated, peacefully
or otherwise.
The decision of the Dominion Railway'Board, which upsets the
station location designed by the G.T.P. for Fort George, and
which finding favored the contentions of George Hammond, of the
Natural Resources Security Company, has been appealed by the
G.T.P. to the Governor-in-Council. The whole case will therefore undergo revision, and a possible outcome is the reversal of
the finding of the Dominion Railway Board, The Commission
recently, after hearing both parties, decided that the G.T.P.
dept should be placed on the main line about three thousand feet
east from the limits of Hammond's immense group of properties,
but not six thousand feet east and in the middle of the Grand
Trunk townsite, as designed by the railway officials.
So far as imparting actual value to the myriad of 25-foot town
lots sold by Hammond at from $250 to $1,500 or higher, the order
of the Board as to the station site did little, Plans in Hammond's
original advertisements played fast and loose with truth by locating the station on the Natural Resources property. The Railway
Board last May located the depot over half a mile in a. straight
line distant from the nearest of these sandwiches of land, and the
Grand Trunk Pacific has opened a campaign to have the matter
re-considered with a view of having their -own original station
plans accepted. What the final outcome will be cannot of course
be predicted, Hammond heralded the recent decision, however,
by announcing "A Double Victory" in bold type covering large
spreads in the newspaper, and inaugurated another lot-selling
campaign on the head of his "victory."
But the end is not yet.
Hammond has evidently put the Grand Trunk Pacific people to
the maximum of inconvenience. His wholesale townsiting methods have had the temporary effect of shifting the depot location
3,000 feet west of where the railway designed it to be. The railroad is now prepared to usher its principal officers, not to mention
expert railroad engineers, before the Federal Cabinet in the effort
to conserve the original plans of the railway, Able lawyers will
endervor to show that the station sight selected by the G.T.P. is
the logical place, and if the road is not successful it will not be
for want of a thorough ventilation of the real facts before the
Cabinet Ministers of the Dominion,
Meanwhile those that may be tempted to pin their faith to the
Hammond properties might be well advised to look well into the
situation before they buy Hammond's town lots. No matter where
the depot is finally built, it will be surrounded by Grand Trunk
Pacific business ar.d residential lots, and these must have priori-

THE news has gone forth of the death of the Duke of Sutherland. The passing of His Grace of Sutherland removes from
Canadian annals the figure of a man who, with generations of
hereditary power, dignity and ducal grandeur behind him, walked
abreast of the times into the New World and organized in Canada
well-concived coolnization schemes, having for their aim the
relief of the congestion which is the condition in certain parts of
Great Britain in which the late duke held vast realms of land. In
Canada the late Duke of Sutherland was widely liked. Besides
being one of the most popular members of the Peerage, the Duke
of Sutherland was most widely traveled and well informed. It
will be remembered that His Grace visited South Fort George last
year, not being deterred from viewing his land holdings in this
district by the long and tedious journey up the Cariboo road. The
death of His Grace is a national loss.
ty over the Hammond lam.-, an
of which are, of course, entirely
outside of the G.T,P, lownsite.
More than that, in an interview
acc'orded a deputation from South
Fort George, Mr. Morley Donaldson, vice-president and general manager of the Grand Crunk
Pacific, made it plain last week
to those business men that development of lliv G.T.P. town-
site would be in an easterly direction, away from the Natural
Resources Security properties
rather than 'towards the Hammond lands. Mr. Donaldson
pointed out thai the cost of G.T.
P, hotels and other conveniences
was met, not from G.T.P. funds,
but came from profits of subsidiary companies, such as townsite
companies controlled by the road.
If G.T.P. plans were fulfilled,
(FortGeorge would, Mr. Donaldson said, become the most important divisional point between |
Edmonton and the coast. The
development at Kort George
would be east and south, and not
west, he said, The large shops,
and round houses of the company
would be built on the eastern
portion of the railway townsite, j
north of the tracks, where also j
would be placed the G.T.P, hotel j
and other buildings.
Evidentlv those  who   ignored j
the dominant position that the
G.T.P. must finally hold in the}
FortGeorge situation, and whoi
bought Hammond's lots on the I
strength of   full-page  suggestions, have another long session
on  the  anxious  seat ahead of
them.   The Governor-in-Council,
and possibly in the end the Privy
Council in England, will have a.
say in the final decision of this!

Time was required
to properly prepare the ground for
the adjudications of the Board, but
the initial stages are now happily
past, adjudications have been completed in several of the more contentious districts and existing rights
have been placed on a linn basis.
Afte: referring at lt.ngth to all the
amendments, the Minister of Lands
"Private capital is, hy the amdnd-
ments, not only permitted but in-
viter) to taue the initiative in launch
ing enterprises in British Columbia.
Ye'; thn water users are protected
and will eventually own and operate
thei: own systems. This' is coming to
be the common type of control in the
States across the line, where the irrigation enterprises now adopt the
plan outlined. Experience has seemed
to indicate that perpetual control of
systems creates endlees friction hetween companies and water users.
"In thu light of the amendments,
the southern portion of the province
has been divided into districts, the
divides and drainage areas being followed in arriving at boundaries.
These districts for the present are
as follows; Victoria, Nicola, Okanagan, Lillooet and Carihoo, Northeast and Southeast Kootenay, Nelson
and Kettle Valley. The boundaries of
several of these districts will shortly
be altered to include the railway belt
the transfer of which was recently
completed by the Dominion Parliament. Practically no division of the
province north of the railway belt
has yet been madt, but it has been
decided to place water engineers at
Fort George, in the Quesnel district
and on the line of the P. & G. E.
"Engineers have been appointed to
the important districts an 1 selected
for the northern work that the general Held work might proceed without
Interruption, assistant engineers have
also been appointed in several districts. Through this arrangement the
district engineer is available at any
time to investigate a record or licence, or hold a hearing on nn application by the direction of the Comptroller. He is particularly available
to the small water user for 'advice,
assistance and the settlement of disputes, and at the same time to report to the Comptroller of Water
Rights ln the administration of his
district. When formerly it was a
hardship to many applicants to appear either before the water recorder
or the comptroller at Victoria, it
now is a comparatively easy and inexpensive mnl ter for him to refer
any question for decision.
"The field work of the past two
years has been chiefly confined to
making surveys and plots of land
appurtenant to water records. In
order that the Board of Investigation
should this season be in a position
to make prompt adjudications, the
preliminary field of work has
again been confined to surveys appurtenant to such records, and in
such districts as, in the discretion of
the board, merited, their first attention. Their work is now well advanced, and the attention is being devoted to lines of work that will pus
sees a permanent value. These lines
of work are as follows:
"1. Systematic and continuous work
in stream measurements.
"2. The prevention of wasteful use
of water.
"3. Policing of streams.
"4. Ecomomic distrib ition and
delivery of water.
"5. Inspecting water systsms to
determine their efficiency and safety.
"6. Determining storage possibilities. . ,
"V. Drivability of stream for
"8. Study of the proper duty of
"9. Investigation  of  water  powers.
"In general tlio work as outlined
will embrace collection of data and
such public supervision as will result in full utilization of thc water
resources of the province, and to
this end tlio Water Rights Branch is
slowly, but surely overcoming outstanding difficulties."
Mr. Boss finishes his Bpecch by a
reference to the personnel of thc
Water Rights Branch, which, as introduced by him, ia evidently made
up of a most efficient number, of officers,

Boyd testified that he had started

'raman, a rancher, where the outlaws
'ere located. They tracked the In-
lians from their last camp and had
roceeded but a short distance when a
