iractur Hon* Magoffin last week was
arreted *-" Tuesday night by Oon-
Btalile Higgentottam, in the Nechaco
town, an I escaped from the local
jail in a singularly daring manner on
Wednesday evening.
Tl,e bad man's name is Fred Wright
ami he is suspected of having stolen
quantities of supplies from caches.
Wright came to town some weeks
ago and bought an interest in the
Little Nugget Cafe here, and later at
the Nechaco townsite. Before his arrest the missing goods were found
on tbe premises of the restaurants he
was interested in. He had apparently
deposited them as part payment for
his share in the business.
when arrested by Constable Hig-
genbottom Wright .expressed little
surprise, and went quietly to the
jail. He was brought up on Wednesday and pleaded "not guilty".
{Stipendiary Magistrate Heme adjourned the case for eight days, pending the arrival of further evidence.
Although he pleaded "not guilty" it
is understood that Wright hag made
Incriminating statements which amount almost to a confession fit his
guilt,
On Wednesday evening he was allowed to go into the jail yard where
p clrispt wan located.  While  out of
Bight for a few moments he succeed-
ed in prying open a large door and
escaped to the woods behind the jail.
Not more thnn    ten  minutes could
have elapsed   after ' his escape $as
discovered by ponstaolu Higt;lnboth-
»in and a hue and cry was raised. A
pos*'e of    deputies Immediately le;t
and scoured   t,hg    pr'ghlurhool but
without [vault.   About    midnight   it
was discovered that a gasoline boat,
the property of Mr. A. G. Hamilton,
was missiiij; f)um     the liver front,
nnd it was supposed that Wright bad
made his escape in this. Cm,e tjf Mr.
Hamlltiiii's    warehouses    w»3   also
broken into   and a can of gasjline
and a quantity of edibles were gone.
The gasoline boat was picked up by
Hit. stnamer "B. X." floating down
liver in   china    Rapids,     about 40
miles below here. The gasoline tank
waB thrown out of the bovv on. tp the

One of the interesting visitors to
town this week is Bill F„x, a man
who for the past twenty years has
been in charge of the Hudson's Bay
post at Fort Grahame, one of tbe
most remote outposts of tbe "great
traders of the great west." Port
Grahame is situated about seventy
miles up tbe Findlay River, which
heads up in the Sifton Pass near
latutude 58, and which, with the
Parsnip from tho Bouth, form;; tiie
mighty Peace.
Bill Fox has served the Hudson's
Eay Company for the .fifth of a century, only twice leaving the Findlay
river post for a glimpse of the world
outside during all tbat period, He is
from the Red River country, and ha3
a great reputation as a woodsman
up there in the Peace country., now
a bleak wilderness in the winter time
and an empty paradisj in the summer. Through all the stirring events
of the past twenty years Bill Fox
has traded fur for goods in the old
log post named after one of Simon
Fraser's party, over 580 miles from
a railroad. He has see.n months when
the post was without supplies of any
description when he had to take to
tho woods with a rifle like the Indians, and live oft tbe game the land
offered. During the excitement on McConnell Creek Bill Fox was at his
pest, and there is not a man on the
continent who understands more
thoroughly tho Immense possibilities
of the great undeveloped country up
there in the far north than the quiet
trader of Fort Grahame,
"There H.aa been a great deal of
difficulty in getting supplies in,"
said Mr. Fox, ' and the expense is
very heavy," There has been some
talk of cl sing the post, the few
Indians up there consent ng, and of
opening a post nca/.er the, junction of
;he Findlay and the Peace, but this
project has been abandoned, l\e informed us,
It cos,U tw.nly seven c.nts a
pound to land freight from Vancouver to Fort Grahrme under present
conditions. The Findlay, Mr. Fox
said, was a splen'-id steamboat river,
but" he added, "there Is not enough business for a steamboat tl^ere
yet."
When the Peace River, one of the
richest sections of British Columbia
comes into its own, Bill Fox will be
there still. Ths gre$t wonderful valleys and fertile plains of the north
BORING FOR BEDROCK AT BRIDGE SITE.
Active operations have now commenced in preparation for
the construction of the bridge across the Fraser River from the
east bank to the G. T. P. townsite here. This week a Grand
Trunk bridge engineer, Mr. R. J, Gibbs, quietly floated down
the river with a complete boring equipment on a scow, accompanied by a crew of five men, The scow is now located on the
projected crossing near the eastern bank, and the clank of the
engine that drives the drills may be heard throughout the day.
It is believed that bedrock will be located at the considerable
depth of about 100 feet. The bridge, in its proposed location,
crosses in a northeasterly direction from District Lot 483 to the
northern end of the railway company's townsite on the Fraser
River, The work of building this bridge will be one of the
problems of construction. It represents the greatest single
piece of work on the unfinished portion of the transcontinental.
It is reported that it will take about 60 trips of the biggest
steamboat on the river to carry the cement for the abutments
in its construction. Work on these foundations will probably
start in the early spring, and it is possible that some of the
preliminary work will be carried on during the coming winter.
There are other bridges to be built up the Fraser, but the
Fort George bridge is the largest undertaking, and it will in
all probability be designed for railroad and general traffic uses
with a swing span.
DESERVED RECOGNITION
The information received here with
the arrival of Superintendent Crosbie
of the Royal bank, that Frank O'Flaherty,   thc     popular   young   accountant w. s   to be transferred to
Vancouver after two years residence
here, was   received    with   gr at disappointment on all   sides here.  Mr.
O'Flaherty has been in, Bouth Fort
George  since the days  of  its early
history, and whilst his move to Vancouver is promotion  in the service,
we regret var.tly to Bay good by to
him. The young men here, who have
been together   in this isolated spot
since the days Qf the town's infancy,
bavo a common bond of  friendship
which is greater    hy far than a'.y
similar ties grown  out of companionship pf life in the eity. Nothing
van be gaid of the early days in. this
'north   country    which   reflect more
I pleasure to the    memory than the
great friendship of the old guard. A
sa\all party was held in The Herald
I last night to bid Mr. O'Flaherty god
speed, and tftihy were the sincere expressions of regret he received from
bis host of friends at his departure.

a vain attempt to arouse the inter
ost of those  in  tbe question of the

Thc local management still remains
in the competent hands of Mr. H. C.
Last Sunday's ball game resulted in
a decided victory for the Nechaco
team, thc score closing at 12 runs to
24 in their favor. The betting wag
two to one on the South Fort
George team, in consideration of the
record they enjoyed, but the Nechaco
boys played a splendid game, and
worked with the energy of desperation to tie the games and obtain one
more chance for the Carney Chal-
legge Cup.
The home team played a weak
game, the fielding being particularly
had. Shcradin, tbe pitcher, was not
throwing as good a game as he had
previously, the stalwart ot the team
bting Harry Close tbe "ever-ready"
catcher. Shejadin's fast pitching
enabled the Nechaco team to bat up
a heavy score when one of their players would find the ball, and tbe runs
from some of these cloud.kissers
mounted rapidly.
The game was marked by uproar
and confusion, the question of umpires exciting considerable argument,
as the Neohaco team refused   to   accept the regular unpire,  but   pressed
for a man they had brought over for
the occasion. It was finally decided
that two umpires should attend the
game. We   presume   that   even umpires often err,  and our own man,
whom has always been acceptable to
hoth teams   in the past,   certainly
does so once in a while, but usually
evens up his errors in subsequent decisions, but   some of   the decisions
handed out by the Nechaco umpire
were so flagrantly unfair that roars
of protest went up from the rooters.
He had   nerve, that    umpire,   and
stuck to Mb guns. Thc Nechaco team
played the best game, however, and
won with credit to themselves, but
had it been a close game some of tlie
decisions might have resulted in the
game breaking up in a general melee.
If baseball is to be played the teams
hereabouts had better decide upon an
umpire from some disinterested point
and provide him with a suit of armor
and a couple of battle axes, and have
a balloon ready for his exit.

NAVIGATION CLOSES
ONTHE SKEENA
Navigation on thc Skeena river for
this season has terminated, according to word received from Prince
Rupert in Vancouver recently. The
sternwhee'.ers which operated on the
river this summer are being brought
down from Hazelton on their last
trip, and by the time this is printed
will be tied up at Rupert ready to be
hauled out on the ways. This season
no doubt marks the end of the stern-
wheeler's life on the Skeena, as by
high water next spring the G. T. P.
trains will be running through to
Hazelton. The water on the Skeena
is at present exceptionally low and
it is with some difficulty that the
vesselB are being brought down the
river.
Trains are now running from Prince
Rupert to Sealy, about three miles
west of Hazelton. Permission has
been granted the G. T. P. by the
railway commission to operate a
passenger and freight train to this
point, which is 12 miles farther inland than Skeena River Crossing. In
the past the trains have only gone
as tar as the Crossing, where the
sternwheelers connected and conveyed
passengers and freight through to
Hazelton.
Passengers going to Hazelton will
make the three miles from Sealy by
stage. It is not expected lt will be
very long before the rail is laid to
the interior town. At present the
contractors are constructing a large
bridge over the Sealy Gulch. The
road-bed into Hazelton has been fixed and ties and rails have been laid
over a great deal of the distance.
Sealy Is 173 miles from Prince
Rupert.
It Is not known what will be done
with the three sternwheelers that operated on the Skeena this summer.
The Hudson's    Bay Company had
the Port Simnson, running from Kit-
wanear  to   Hazelton;  the  Inlander,
ot the  Skeena River Transportation
Company, connected with the trams
from the crossing to Hazelton, and
the Omineca did general work on the
river.   Whether the vessels   will be
laid up   at Prince   Rupert   for the
winter and used on the Stikine next
spring,   or   whether    they   will be
brought south to Victoria and used
in some other service cannot be said.
Word from the end of construction
of the Grand   Trunk Pacific on the
western end, where the I. W. W. agitators induced more that 2,500 men
to quit work on the transcontinental,
states that the men who walked out
are not at all enthusiastic over the
strike and that those who have not
gone to tbe coast from Hazelton now
desire to return to work,
Of those who left their gangs 1,400
have gone down the coast to Vancouver and Seattle, while quite a
number have started walking overland to Fort George to seek employment on the right-of-way and grading in that neighborhood.
The atation men are all at work
and so are tbe bridge crews at Scaly
and Mud Orceki New men are arriving every day, and the contractors
claim that the idle camps soon will
resume with full gangs.
There have been no disorders such
as characterized tbe C. N. R. strike
along the lower Fraser, and Chief
Constable Wynn, with his regular
force, is in full control of the situation.
Mr. LeSoeur, accompanied by his
wife and child, are visitors in town
this week. Mr. LaSouur is auditing
the accounts of the agencies of the
B. C. Express Company.
ADDITION TO JAIL
Plans and specifications are now
in the Fort George government office
on the Hudson Bay land, for tho
building of six additional cells to tho
jail here. Contractors may sec these
plans on application at tho offices
during business hours. The present
jail is a joke, and we are pleased to
see that the government arc making
It large enough to properly cope with
thc lawless element which will be
here during thc construction period..

When John Houston died, ar.d
his paper was extorted from his
heir under stress of circumstances he did not understand, it
became necessary that an independent paper was needed to
carr..- out a policy as fearless as
the old journalist's would have
become, for interests were beginning to operate in this section
which were guided and governed
by crooks and swindlers of extraordinary energy and shrewdness.
This fight The Herald has consistently carried on, never backing down before the odds which
the cash-inflated organization of
wildcat townsite operators and
swindlers marshalled against us.
Our business has been battered
and bent, expensive libel suits
have been launched upon us, and
in every conceivable manner The
Herald ar.d its proprietor have
been subjected to persecution in
retaliation for the attacks we
have made upon the promotion
methods oi the crook3 aforesaid.
And we are proud of our record.
Files of The Herald show a record of substantiated statements
and bare truths. We have not'
attempted to disguise unpleasant
facts, neither have we misrepresented the prospects of the great
country in which we work for
the benefit of the public.
Before another anniversary has
b en recorded in these columns
many things wil] have transpired
which   will   vitally   affect   the1
future of this paper and of this
city.    Before a British court of
ju-.tice the policy of The Heralti
will be put to the acid test, and,
the investigation of the rights or
wrong* of our long,  strenuous1
canpaign will be writ Icrgeupon
the   pages   of   this    territory's1
history.
In the  past  an   independent;
r: e liurn of publicity has been in-1
disnensible to the welfare of the!
legitimate business interests oi
these  parts,   and   the   support j
■fthth  we have   received from;
this source during the past two
years has been gratifying in the
extreme.    In the future the field
of activity of this journal will
continue to grow as the development of the latent resources ol
this country proceeds with the
advance of the railways.

lumber of the shell building seemed
to attract tbe sn and reflect its
p.t.kss rays in a manner that hurt
the eyts of tbe surme editor. He
pulled has hat down and cursed in a
siueaiy Toice tbe combination of
cruel circumstances that made him a
•lave to the fcol job te beld. He had
started out with high ideals of building up a great newspaper, this little
country editor, (or the men down at
\ the coast had giibiy told him many
lies, and being oily a down at-the-
heel cub reporter in those days, with
a champagne appetite and a beer income, and al! the accumulated em-
iarra-sments which such a combination inevitably leads to, the editor
;ob ha/1 sounded like the knock of
opportunity—and he had jumped to
open tbe door.
At first, finding himself tbe victim
of a practical joke, he had valiantly
striven to mold a belief for himself
and bis paper's readers far away in
the railway country, that the imitation town had some elements of
reality about the future which he
word painted for it in his best cub
reporter's style. Today, however tbe
mental strain required to keep up the
self-deception had been sapped and
dispersed by the sun, and he lay
inert, reviewing bis dreary prospects
in a maudlin mood of Belt pity.
Across the street in a miniature
ham and eating joint was heard the
clink of dishts as the kitchen help
carelessly bathed the porcelain, and
now and again the raucus melody of
a wheezy gramaph.ne filtered through
tie heat haze from a prol hall up
the s'.reet. The sound irritate! the
editor, and murmer.'ng bis complaints in a h gh pitched voice be
raised himself to his feet and lazily
ambled off down the rough street towards tbe jack pine woods—lie want-
k1 to be alone.
He was "in wrong" and be knew
it. Not far away a lively little town
was really making good in the manner represented by the men who had
sent bim to their imitation town,
and this was as gall and wormwood
to bis already bitter cup. On these
things be ruminated, till a printer
from the door of the stifling office
he had just quitted yelled after bim
for more "dope." He increated hlB
pace, affecting not to bear, cursing
his lot in the same ineffectual manner that marked his every action.
On reaching the jack-pine forest he
thr^w himself down to rest in the
mdequate shade their gaunt growth
oflered. Copy he must write, but on
what. He hat filled tbe pages with
the wildest of his Imag n ngs, and
yetthe unfilled cnlumns gaped in the
forms. As he lay, searching his im-
aginati* n for material reasonably
consistent with the requirem nts of
his advertising editorial mission, a
coyote bounded from the forest and
tattered by, pausing to gaze at tbe
strange sight ot the intruder, but
s eing no'hing worthy of his attention be pattered on across the waste.
There thought thc wide-eyed guy, is
a nature study about which I could
rave considerably. In the cool of the
evening this trifling incident shall be
turnid to advantage for my master.

Declaring that the statements attributed to him in the Montreal press
warding the effect of the Panama
•anal mi trans-continental railway
traOe were not correct, E. J. Chamberlain, president of the G. T. P.,
Wlu, was in Vancouver recently on his
way t0 Prince Rupert, made a cloar
statement of his position.
..My statement that I did not confer that Canadian railways would
',,, interested in boat lines via the
Panama Canal is quite correct, but
I remarked to the Montreal reporter
lhat ior transcontinental railways to
establish steamship lines from Halifax or St. John, to Vancouver or
Prince Rupert would be simply putting on lines to compete with the
rail lines across the continent. Furthermore, I did not say that in mjr
opinion very little grain would go
via the Pacific coast.
"Manitoba and Southern Saskatchewan will within the next two years
block Montreal with grain unless
very big improvements are made in
the facilities for shipping grain east
Irom Montreal. There is no doubt but
a very large amount of grain would
go out by way of Vancouver and
Prince Rupert if proper facilities
were provided, and proper care taken
in preparing grain for such shipment.
"Regarding the situation in the
north, where our construction is
being pushed as rapidly as possible,
I can say that we can use all the
men we can get up to 2,000. The
strike is all over now. We have 1,800
men working on the grades, and
there are not more than 150 idle men
in Prince Rupert.
