'ORT GEORGE NOT CONTROLLED BY
A TOWNSITE COMPANY.
Saturday, February 3rd. 1912
|HE following is it copy of the petition
circulated by paid agents of the Nat-
Resources Security Company, Ltd., of
louver, lor the purpose of supporting
pplication which that nervy concern
before the Railway Commission, re-
iing that august body to use its con-
over railway corporations to further
Hs of, and verify the statements of
Wnsite company aforesaid:
j THE CHAIRMAN AND MEMBKRS
OF THE DOMINION RAILWAY COMMIS
BION. The petition of the undersigned,
fcsidents and settlers of Fort George and
liclnity, io the province of British Colum-
tia, respectfully shows that;
! THAT heretofore on or about the l8tli.
May of November 1911, the Indian Reservation at Kort George was purchased
through the Dominion Government for
lhe use of the G. T. P. Railway Company.
THAT your petitioners confidently, and
it is believed reasonably, expected that
■hereupon said railway company would
■lake formal announcement of its plant
With reference to said reservation, fixing
Ihe precise location of its station and
jight-of-way thereon, but that suid com*
■any has utterly failed to make public any
Statement whatsoever, regarding the use
which property was to be put.
THAT by the terms of its charter
id railway company was to have had
Its road completed to this place gomie time
ince That several years ago the company
ade known its intentions of placing an
nportant townsite on said reservation,
hat for marly one year and a half the
;itnpatiy has had on Iiie in the provincial
land ofliccs maps and plans showing its
ight oi way through, and extensive sta
ion grounds in said reservation. That
luring practically all this time it hat
in currently reported that said station
otild be centrally located near the west-
tii boundary of such property, and that
Formal announcement of the fact would he
ade by the company as soon as the
purchase of said reservation was consummated. That said reports have Ifeen
circulated so widely and with such apparent authenticity that if unpro\ed it
was incumbent upon the said railway
company to deny the same but that laid
company nns utterly failed so to do. That
believing and influenced by such statements and facts, your petitioners in common with thousands of others, purchased
at a very early date, practically all the
apuilable townsite and other property adjacent to said reservation for sums aggregating several millions' of do'lars, and
that largely by reason ol the long and
entirely unlorseeu delay on the part of
the company in acquiring said reservation
and making said announcements, such investments have for a long period of time
been rendered unproductive, and the development of said property retarded. That
unless the aforesaid definite forma] announcement is made at a very early date,
the confidence of the general public in the
titure of Kort George will be seriously
tnpaired, with the result that the attendant
,nd wholly unnecessary uncertainty will
uin our business lor the present year,
nd will greatly retard the opening up of
large district now ripe for development
esides working Irremidable loss and in-
nrv  to  large numbers ol  investors.
THAT said reservation represents an
-.vestment ol the part ol the railway of
bout 5)3S,000. That thc investment of
mmcdiately adjoining properties aggregate
leveral million dollars, and that your petitioners feel that it is wholly unjust and
n-reasinable that the interest of so large a
umber of people should be jcpardized
nd the progress of an entire community
etnrded by the arhitnry action ol a com-
lany representing a mere Iraction ol the
allies involved, wherefore your petitioners
lost respectfully pray:
TIIAT YOUR IIONARAIILE BODY be
leased to use its good offices in procuring
om thc Grand Trunk Pacific Railway
impnny a definite and speedy onnounce-
icnt of the location ol its station in
■aid Indian Reservation, at the most con-
'enicnt and central point with reference to
ihe needs of this community, together
vith the publication ol such oilier inform-
itlotl as may be desirable with a view to
stablishing that degree of confidence and
ertainty in the local situation which ii
equisite to business stability and the
irosperitv of the community:
AND YOUR PETITIONERS will ever
pray;—
reasons why this petition is such a
mockery of counterfeit public aims
ef. These reasons have been laid be-
e Railroad Commission at Ottawa
people of South Fort George, a
meeting of whom was held in the
all last Saturday night. Taking the
nts against the petition in their re
spective order, we will dispose of them by
a process of elimination which will not
stand very much counter argument.
(1) In the first place the petition purports to eminate from the people of this
district, wl.ereas it represents in reality the
interest of a small faction up here that are
props in the stage setting of the Vancouver
promoter, who prompts their actions from
tike wings, and marks their effect in his
scenario.
(2) That with the first operation of the
Natural Resources Security Company Ltd.,
they represented on their maps and plans
that railroad terminals would be placed
in close proximity to their property, and
that they later moved the "proposed
station" to another point on their maps to
suit the requirements of further sales. That
on several occasions the company has represented that the station would be at a
certain exact point, near their townsites,
and that the reports which the petition refers to eminated from the Natural Resources Security Company to aid them in their
lot-selling campaign, and are signed by the
name of its president, one George J. Hammond, of whom more anon.
(3) That the millions of dollars which the
Natural Resources concern's petition claims
to be involved, has only become so by the
unscrupulous methods used by them in the
promotion and sale of the twenty odd thousand lots, and which is tl»e sum they refer
to. On this huge property there is a total
population oi 75 persons.
(5) That the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway
Company have already advertised tha fact
that it is not associated with the Natural
Resources Security Company in any town-
site.
(6) That, as stated by the public meeting
of citizens here, representing the independent interests, no selection of a railway
station here should be made until the Railway Commission can visit this place.
WHEN grim death . awoke to the fact
that old John Houston was mocking him over the rim of eternity, he gathered him into his fold. That was in the spring
of 1910. The Fort George Tribune then became the property of the Natural Resources Security Company Ltd, in a roundabout
and very questionable manner. From that
time on instead of exposing the hobble-dehoy
townsites, as had been its wont under "old
.John," it became part of the promoting concern's publicity scheme. Its columns would
feature desirable tit-bits of "news" without
much regard for veracity, which would be
reprinted in their advertising literature, and
credited to a paper which the public knew
had been run by a man whose proud boast
was that he had "never worn the corporation collar." The paper was run always
under an alias. The advertising manager of
the townsite concern has generally figured
in the mock-ownership. Now, however, a
young journalist from Vancouver has appeared on the scene, and has announced the
fact that he is "it," in so far as the policy of
the Tribune be concerned. To quote his
statement:
"To begin  with, this paper   owes allegiance to no company, political party
or administration,    whether local, provincial or federal. It recognises ,no authority outside the walls of the Tribune
office, situated on Central avenue, Fort
George, and it means to have this thoroughly understood: the sooner the better. It will stand    and fight first, last
and all the time   for Fort George city
and district, not for any one small portion thereof, but for the whole. Today
it has no fight with any man or faction,
but war will be sure and sudden at the
first sign of defection from the loyalty
due this district from every man in it."
That promises well. We   hope to see the
Fort George Tribune, by its future policy,
make good for the insult it has offered to
the    dead journalist     whose name   it has
flaunted as its founder, for the past two
years. We ure glad to see the new editor
declare his independanee and state that he
will not carry a spear in Hammond's chorus
like those who have gone before, A commendable policy, that of boosting for the
"whole district," and from such a newcomer his threat of sanguinary war and
death to traitors reads very well. The editor of this paper has lived in tl»is district
for six long years. He saw Port George in
the days when its existance in the scheme of
things consisted of a log Hudson's Hay post
only.' Like our friend with the fine ideals,
we jealously guarded the well-being of the
place, and when a get-rich-quick artist from
other fields sought to plunder the place of
its heritage before it came of age, we did
our best to fight him off. We shortly come
before the court charged with criminal
libel. We promise the Fort George Tribune
that as a loyulty stunt the consequences of
this trial will be immense. It will also give
the Fort George Tribune a chance to dwell
impartially upon a matter of very grave
public interest.
WE have had a number of enquiries regarding the Fort Fraser and also
the Fraser Lake townsites. The first mentioned is being promoted by the Dominion
Stock and Bond Corporation, of Vancouver,
and the last is partly owned by the G. T.
P. Railway and partly by a Winnipeg real
estate firm. "Toronto Saturday Night," a
paper that is considered an authority on
investments all over Canada, passes the following opinion on the sites in a recent issue:
"I may say the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway, a month or so ago, issued a statement
in connection with this matter to the effect
that the property the railway company was
offering for sale at Fraser Lake should not
be confounded with Fort Fraser Townsite,
which is offered by the Dominion Stock and
Bond Corporation of Vancouver, B. C,
Since that time the latter company has issued a long statement defending their proposition and saying their land is the better
stuff. The G. T. P. stated that there was no
railway at Fort Fraser and that there was
not even a siding there. I think the G. T.
P. has a little the better of the argument
and I would not advise purchasing the
Fort Fraser property."
CITY AND DISTRICT
A. W. Healy, formerly manager of James Reid Ltd., of
Quesnel, but of late years the
popular traveller for thc linn of
W. H. Malcolm & Co., of Vancouver, arrived in town this
week, having drtven in with Mr.
John Holt, of Quesnel. Mr.
Healy reports a great interest
expressed outside regarding this
place.
Mr. John Holt, the versatile
political enthusiast, from Quesnel, was amongst the arrivals
from Quesnel this week. Mr.
Holt is organizing for the
Liberals in the district. Whin
we knew him in days gone by,
he was president of the Quesnel
Conservative Association. He
tells us, howeper, that since
those dnys he has reconstructed
his views. Variety is the spice of
life, and Mr. Holt appears to
like spice, even in politics, but
no matter what cause he next
adopts, "Johnny" Holt is at
any rate a good fellow—and a
good farmer.
F. T. Burden, P. L. S„ of
Fort George, was amongst the
arrivals from the south this
week. Mr. Burden states that
the interest outside in the Fort
George country now is very
intense. He anticipates a great
influx into this country this
year, after the opening of navigation.
Don't fail to attend the Firemen's Ball in the Fort George
Theatre next Wednesday night.
It promises to be a most enjoyable event. Tickets, {,1 each)
can be procured from any of the
local stores.
J. A. Fraser, M. L. A. for
this district, introduced, on the
second day of the legislature a
petition from the British Columbia and Alaska Railway for
leave to introduce a private bill
to amend its Corporate Act.
Now what do they want—guaranteeing?
THE annual meeting of the South Fort
George Conservative Association,
held in the Fire Hall last Tuesday night,
was fittingly well attended. Considerable,
and well-earned tribute was paid to Mr. P.
Campbell, president of the association
during the past year. Mr. Calmpbell represents the best type of the Conservative
party's support, and during the past year
he has accomplished a great deal. In his
work he has been ably assisted by the rest
of the association's officers. Mr. Campbell
refused to again stttnd for office. The officers
for the ensuing year are; Hon. President,
Hon. Thos. Taylor. President, Chas. E. McElroy. Vice-President, William Kennedy.
Sec.-Treas., George E. McLaughlin; and Executive Committee, M. C. Wiggins; Edward
Roberts; Albert Johnson; and D. B. Lazier.
■^VERY stage brings in some of our
■■"■' citizens from the world outside. They
all state that indications point to a very
busy season during the coming year. From
Winnipeg we are informed that the influx
will be very heavy, and that a great deal of
building will be carried on at South Fort
George.
Received from Minneapolis:
"Editor: You folks better look
out, or your friend George J.,
will steal your passenger station. The Nat. Res. Sec. Co. are
sending out petitions to be signed and forwarded to Ottawa so
as to get the depot at their end
of the reserve..."
Stranger, cease to worry; we
are "looking ouf—ALL THE
TIME.
Engineer Barrow, and his
G. T. P. survey party, who have
been working in this vie nuty

transitman, Mr. Reginald Jes-
sop, left for Ashcroft early in
the week.
PUBLIC MEETING.
f|lHE real estate market has begun to
•* show signs of activity. Close-in acreage is in heavy demand on the outside, and
the local operators state that the market
is showing signs of improvement every day.
The weather, during the past week, has
been a continuul source of pleasure. If we
had ordered it, a-Iu-carte, it could not be
better.
A public meeting was held in
the Fire Hall last Saturday
evening to take action against
the application of the Natural
Resources Security Company,
I before the Railroad Commission
for the location of tha station
site in close proximity to their
townsite. The meeting was well
attended. By request of the
meeting Mr. Chas. E. McElroy
took the chair. Several gentlemen spoke at length upon the
ill-advised action on the part of
the townsite concern in trying,
by force of mal-created circumstances to insinuate their absurd claims to a vastly important public privelege thus prematurely. A committee, consisting of Messrs. C. E. McElroy;
J. B. Daniell, and Geo. E. McLaughlin were appointed to lay
the objections of the majority
before the Railway Commission, 1'Alil'.  IWU

gone through and found things different,
although not easy, and the man who has

Next day, the warv black flics were far
to prosaic to please. Tiny Insinuated themselves under the hat brim aod behind the
ears, whilst the trumpeting tin si|'uitocs
made a frontal attack on every exposed
purt ol tlie body. Packs grew heavy in the
boggy ground, and tempers were sorely
[relied, but the camp fire affoTded some
rebel, and at last, snug beneath the mosquito tcnl we lay n very Tantalus meal to
the hungry horde without.
The lilth day's walking brought us to
the lust stage ol the journey. Construction gangs working on the roads were
passed, and the feeling of town grew
girudunlly stronger. But no mile is so long
us the Inst lilile, and that drop down the
bench lands af the Fraser Valley into the
settlement of Smith Fort George seems
woiiderlully extended. The town is hidden
from view until the very lasl moment, and
when the little frontier burg of wood and
canvas comes into sight at last one is
right nbove it.
South    Foil    George    has      beaten   the

over three milcs away on the Nechaco, llle
child ol a large townsite company. Ft can
boast <>[ a population of 340 as against
140, and it bundles all the present business j
nf the districl. Banks, stores, a siwmill
and a wharf give it a busy appearance;
and lhc lasl touch was added on July I,
when a theatre was Opened. The Fort

in the unknown future, ami if optimism,
batked bv a powerful company, can make
a town, it may make good, but at pres.nl j
