OW LAUGHS
AI Tl INJUNCTION
[t is now rumored that so far
the Grand Trunk Pacific side
; [ the controversy is concerned
t!ie injunction, placed by Ross &
Barw original owners of 1'ort
George townsite, on grading ope.r-
tions on tlic Nechaco waterfront through their property on
Hamrnond street is as good as
removed. -
Engineers in the employ of the
railway company have decided,
according to this report, that it is
quite feasible ior the railway line
to curve out instead of in at that
particular point, and so, instead
of cutting away the land, they
wiH Bimply fill in the grade on the
river side and rip-rap.
The process of rip-rapping is
one well known to railroad build
ers, and consists in fortifying the
sides of a gravel enbankment with
rock, to prevent the danger of
sliding o washing away. Rock
will be bought in fom Willow
river, and a solid wall built on
the outside of the grade to protect it from the operation of the
Nechaco current.
The work, it is understood, will
be undertaken either by the
Grand Trunk Pacific direct or by
the Sims-Carey Construction
Company, and will be carried on
coincident with track laying.
Business men who have interests along Hammond street state
that they will be glad to see next
spring a recurrence of the brisk
business in that neighorhood that
last summer witnesed.
ELEVEN GAMES IN
HOCKEY SCHEDULE
First Will Be Played on Christmas Day, Second New Year,
But Place Not Decided
While thc actual dates of the
hockey schedule have not as yet
been arranged, the representatives of the two teams that will
1.attic this season for the Cooke
cup have agreed in a general way
on the hockey programme" for
the winter.
Eleven games will be played
in the series, the games to be
played alternately in the two
towns, Fort George and South
Fort George. As last year the
fust game will be played on
Christmas day and the second on
Xe wYear's day, but the place
oi the first game, which will decide the place of the rest, has not
a*, yet been decided on. Games
will be played weekly, until the
completion of the schedule.
Montreal, Nov. 20.—(Special.)
—A petition has been filed against
tiie election cf James Morris, the
new member for Chateauguay.
The petition alleges bribery on
the part of Morris and " others,
and also lesser misdemeanors.
STRIKES IN NATAL
Hindus Give Trouble in Opposition to  Restrictions Placed
on People of Their Race.
Capetown, Nov. 20.—(Special.)
—The East Indian residents of
Natal, 150,000 in number, have
declared a general strike in opposition to the polltax of $15 a head
and the regulation forbidding
them to travel from one South
African state to another.
Two thousand Hindus were
arrested when trying to pass
from the Transvaal to Natal to
take part in the demonstration.
The strike is accompanied by
riots and the burning of sugar
plantations. The affair is causing
anxiety on the part of the British
government lest it give rise to
trouble in India.
A WORD OF THANKS.
The management of the Herald beg to extend cordial thanks to the people of South Fort George for
the hearty support this newspaper has received in its
first issue under their supervision.
In assuming control of this newspaper at a few days'
notice the present management have met with great
difficulties. Despite these handicaps the Herald appears today with eight pages containing a volume of
advertising that well proves the progressive business
spirit of this town.
It takes a little time to get into the stride, but we
can safely promise readers of the Herald a clean,
newsy,- up-to-date sheet, one that South Fort George
will be proud of. In return for this public service the
Herald knows that it will receive a liberal share of
patronage from the business men of the town and
district.
There are many newspapers that profess to be devoted to the advancement of Northern British Columbia.
There are two newspapers that claim the progress of
the Fort George district as the object nearest their
hearts.
But this is the South Fort George newspaper. Remember that.
DUFFERIN'S COACH

AN OPEN LETTER TO IE WOMEN OF THE DISTRICT
SLIDES DELAY
TRACK LAM
Owing to slides on the railway,
trains have not been running this
side of Mile 90 of late days. The
end of steel rests at Mile 182, the
slow progress of track laying being due to the fact that it is impossible to forward steel under
the present conditions.
TODAY'S TELEGRAPHIC NEWS.
EUROPE ATTEMPTS
TO HOLD PEOPLE
Newspapers Join in Campaign to
Stem Tide of Emigration
to Canada.
London, Nov. 20.—(Special.)
—An organized campaign to prevent emigration to Canada is
being e<inducted in the newspapers of Austria, Germany, Nor-
way, Sweden, Denmark, Belgium
and Holland.
Writers to the papers tell of
tlie dreariness of Canadian country life and the horrors of slum
"fe in Canadian cities, which arc
declared to be worse than those
"i the old world. One paper even
goes so far as to say that the Canadian immigration agents are al*.
lied with the white slave traffic.
Officials of the immigration servile admit that the campagn may
nave a great effect on next year's
immigration.
WELCOME FOR LEADER
Suffragett: j to Organize Reception fo: Mrs. Pankhurst on
Return to England.
London, Nov. 21.—(Special.)
The militant suffragettes are
planning to organize a great reception for Mrs. Pankhurst on
her return to England.
There is danger that she may
be arrested as soon as she reaches
England as she has served only
a few weeks of a three-year sentence for inciting to outrage She
is said to be in normal health
now,
Sylvia Pankhurst made an inflammatory speech in London
last night in favor of the rent
strike. An attempt was made to
arrest her but with the aid of a
bodyguard she escaped.
THREE CANDIDATES
IN SOUTH LANARK
Arthur Hawke Enters the Field
in the Interests of Navy and
"Canada First."
Toronto, Nov. 21.—(Special.)
—Arthur Hawke of this city, who
marshalled the British-bom to
vote for the Conservative party
in the last, general elections in
Canada, is out as a candidate in
thc South Lanark bye-election in
thc interests of "Canada first."
There are already two Conservative candidates in the field, Col.
Balderson and Dr. Hanna.
Mr. Hawke favors a Canadian
navy and states that he will make
the naval question thc great issue in the election. The date has
not-as yet been set for the election.
Guilty of Conspiracy.
Victoria, Nov. 21.—(Special.)
•Franklin C. Cook and J. O.
Hearn was found guilty of conspiracy in connection with the
collapse of the Bankers Trust
Company today. They were sentenced to three and a half years
in the penitentiary.
Larkin Address Falls Flat.
Dublin, Nov. 21.—(Special.)—•
James Larkin, the Dublin strike
leader, addressed 10,000 people in
London on Wednesday night but
failed to create the impression
that was expected. Rebellion was
the keynote of his speech.
Wilson  Dislikes  Hand-Shaking.
Washington, Nov. 21.—(Special.)—President Wilson has broken another precedent. There will
be no New Year's reception at
the White House this year, as thc
president is opposed to the physical ordeal of shaking hands with
thousands of people.
"The time has come," the Walrus said,
"Tp talk of many things—
"Of shoes, and ships, and sealing
wax,
"And cabbages and kings."
That old watus was a wise animal. He would have made a
geat newspaper man—his ideas
were so varied.
The time has come in Fort
George to talk of many things;
and one thing that has been in
the back of my head for a long
time I would very much like to
tell you all about.
It has always seemed to me
a great waste of energy and time
and money that in this district
so many of our interests are divided. It is unfortunate but not incurable. And one step in the
remedy is to unite the women.
That is the idea I want to tell
about. I should like to form a
woman's club to which every
woman in the three townsites
would be eligible.
The first question anyone will
likely ask is, "What would be the
object?"   and   the answer: "To
unite the women of the district."
There used to be no higher better object, for in doing that we
should have accomplished much.
There are many,   many   women
here who are lonely.   We   want
these women to meet each other
and  in   their  mutual sympathy
forget their individual   troubles.
There are many women who are
discouraged.     But on the other
hand there are   others   who are
hopeful.   They can exchange experiences. We want every woman
who has ideas, every women who
has talent, every woman who has
hands to do or sympathy to understand what she has  not  the
power to express, all these women
and more we want to belong to
the Woman's Club.
My idea would be to hold
monthly meetings in some hall
alternately between South Fort
George   and   Fort   George.   It
would be very easy in the winter time to get a large open sleigh
that would take 30 or 40 women
and for a minimum charge of 25
cents make it perfectly possible
for anyone to attend a meeting in
either town. The membership
fee would be so low that no one
need be excluded for that reason.
Say a dollar a year.
These meetings should be varied enough in character to appeal
to everyone.   There might be one
or two musical numbers, a paper,
discussion of the paper, and refreshments consisting of tea and
ci?'»'e; the whole meeting to occupy not over   two   hours.   In
these papers I should like to take
up subjects that would appeal to
the women of the district.   We
would not try to settle whether
Bacon   wrote   Shakespeare, but
we might delve a bit into the mysteries of the fireless cooker and
paper-bag cookery; we might like
to hear about some of the new-
methods of teaching children, of
instructing them early and blessedly in the sex questions that so
many novels and dramas of the
day are treating; we might like
to hear of these plays from those
who have visited more recently
than we the lands where the railways run; or would we not be interested in a paper on "My garden   in   Fort   George," from   a
woman who   had   planted   and
weeded and loved the flowers of
her hands?
Then there is the school question which should be of interest
to us all; and the labor question,
the eight-hour day with a living
wage. Many more subjects
there are too, but tlie m|ain thing
is to get together. So after reading this will all the women who
are interested the least little bit
and who would like to hear more
about the new woman's club' come
to the Princess theatre, on Central avenue, next Saturady afternoon at three o'clock?
ONE OF THEM.
Forty one years ago the proud
Lord Dufferin, governor-general
of Canada, decided to do British
Columbia the great honor of paying her a vice-regal visit.   That
was before the days of the C. P.
R. so his excellency travelled by
horse and stage.     To   do   him
special honor the British Columbia   Express   Company,   which
then    furnished    transportation
from Fort   Yale   to Barkerville,
built a splendid coach to- carry
Ithe   distinguished    visitor from
Yale to Kamloops.   This vehicle
was   afterwards   known as the
; Dufferin coach, and so great was
! the sentiment attached to it that
j during all these 41 vears' il has
been kept in good repair.
Other parts of the Cariboo road
may be familiar with the historic
carriage, hut South Fort George
was treated to its first sight of
the Dufferin coach on Tuesday
morning, when it pulled in bearing six passengers.
"We have not had much sleep,"
said one lady, but it was worth
it to know that we were ^ riding
in Lord Dufferin's coach."
And surely it is an impressive
sight, with its outside painted the
gorgeous red that characterizes
all the B. X. vehicles, and its inside upholstered in royal blue
corduroy velvet.
The reason of its presence in
Fort George district this week
was that Charles Millar, president
of the B. X., was in town and
wanted to return to his home in
Toronto. What is the use of being president of anything if one
cannot have the best that is? So
Mr. Millar wired last week to
Ashcroft for the Dufferin coach.
The famous old carriage left
Ashcroft Tuesday morning, November 11, loaded with express.
Upon reaching Quesnel Saturday
night its burden was exchanged
for six passengers, W. J. West,
superintendent of the B. X.; Mr.
and Mrs. J. McPherson and little
boy; Mr. Wall and Miss Hughes.
Sunday noon the coach pulled out
of Quesnel, travelling night and
day until it reached South Fort
George at 4 a.m. Tuesday norning
November i8_ The well known
Cariboo driver, Al Young, held
the ribbons that controlled four
picked horses. The only top
made between Quesnel and South
Fort George, except to change
horses, was at Blackwater, where
the coach rested for eight hours,
four a. m* to noon.
On Thursday morning this
coach of historic interest left for
Ashcroft bearing Charles Millar,
W. J. West, W. F. Wesley and
other passengers.

Deputy Minister of Labor Fails
to Secure Settlement of Coal
Miners' Strike.
Nanaimo, Nov. 20.—(Special.)
—F. A. Ackland, deputy minister
of labor, has been in Nanaimo
for several days attempting to effect a settlement of the coal mine
strike. He has met with no success.
The mine owners refuse to negotiate with the United Mine
Workers unless the union is willing to forego recognition as one
of the demands. This the union
refuses to do.
CULVERT DESTROYED
Toronto, Nov. 20.—(Special.)
—Sir Donald Mann, in an interview here, states that the sum of
$7,000,000 obtained by Sir William Mackenzie in England, will
all be spent in Canadian Northern extensions in the west.
Council of West Vancouver Orders Work Demolished—Engineers Arrested.
Vancouver, Nov. 20,—(Special.)—The trouble existing between the West Vancouver council and the Pacific Great Eastern
railway came to a climax on Monday of this week when the municipality ordered the demolition
of a railway culvert at Holly-
burn. A gang of men worked all
afternoon pulling the culvert to
pieces. They were stopped in the
evening by an injunction.
J. A. Jeffrey, thc engineer in
charge of thc work for the railway company, attempted to prevent thc destruction of the cul-
U't and was 11 rested on a charge
of assault. The dispute arose
over the dimensions of the culvert.
Two men were walking along
the snow covered grade on Prince
George about 6 o'clock one evening last week. They had been
away from the district some
months and were remarking on
the changes. Suddenly one of
them whistled.
"By George, there's a two-
story house ahead," he exclaimed, "and when I left in September
there was not even a shack hereabouts. See the lights. Looks
as though the place might be a
small hotel."
"What are you talking about?"
asked the other.
'Why. that house straight
ahead'there. The lights just
flashed on now. They look bright
enought to be gasoline. Can't
make out at this distance. Coal
oil at a dollar a gallon is no item
to that, man"
His friend stopped him and
said earnestly:
"Say, old man, are you nearsighted, or did you have a chill
down South r"   0
"What's getting you?" was thc
indignant answer. " Isn't that a
house, and aren't those more
lights than ■—?"
Then he stopped short. He
had come close enough to see
that the big two-story house was
only Carlton's steam shovel just
lighting up.
The shovel has become a familiar beloved object to Fort George.
When it came last summer the
people used to gather in interested groups along Hammond street
to watch it work; the long arm
swinging the scoop out with a I
fascinating rythm. It was one.of
the earliest tangible signs of railroad activity, and the people who
had been waiting with growing
impatience for the coming of the
rails, looked upon it as a welcome
messenger.
Then in August an injunction
was issued, and the big shovel
had to be moved some 2000 yards
to the cut, on the easterly portion
of the Indian reserve. It seemed
as though a good friend had gone
away. People talked about the
day when the shovel would corne
back as a happy event to be awaited with keen interest. Nearly two
months passed before Mr. Carlton ordered the shovel up to a
point near the ferry landing, to
scoop out the dirt for the new
road leading from the wharf on
the Nechaco river, up to Fort
George townsite.
This week the last shovel-full
of dirt was dug at that end. Now
the shovel is on the last stage of
its journeyings back to the cut
where it will labor for perhaps
another week, making a grade for
a side track. Then its work for
the winter will be over. When
spring conies, once more it will
take up its duties; but in new
fields—probably the forerunner of
Pacific Great Eastern rails.
Spencer Robinson Sentenced
Vancouver, Nov. 20.—(Special.)—Spencer Robinson, formerly trustee and councillor of
South Vancouver, was found
guilty today of theft and uttering
forged papers. He was sentenced
to two years in the penitentiary.

Vancouver, Nov. 2'7-^Pe"
cial.)—The deportation of Bnag-
wan Singh, a Hindu priest, has
raised a storm at Vancouver.
The priest, when the order for
his deportation was issued appealed to the minister of the interior, and meanwhile he was allowed out on bail. A writ 0
habeas corpus was issued, but its
use was not necessary
On Wednesday the immigration officers arrested the priest
and rushed him aboard the
steamer Princess Alice and started for Victoria.   Lawyers acting
for the Hindus secured a   court • <■
order forbidding Bhagwan Sing's'
deportation until the habeas corpus writ could be served.
The order was transmitted by
wireless telegraph to Immigration
Reid, but he ignored it and the
Hindu was placed on the steamer
Empress of Japan and is now far
out on the Pacific.
Meanwhile the Hindu's lawyers are attempting to have Reid
committed for contempt of court.
This is the first time wireless has
been used to transmit a court order in Canada. the prcs-.il

Winston Churchill See No Prospect of Let Up—Britain Plans
Heavy Expenditure
London, Nov. 15.—Rt. Hon.
Winston Churchill at the lord
mayor's banquet on Monday of
this week said that next year
Great Britain would have 150,000
marines and sailors, the largest
force on record.
There must be no relaxation of
effort on the putt of Britain, snid
Mr. Churchill. The estimates for
1914 would show a substantial increase for the navy and would
be the greatest sum provided for
naval purposes in times of peace.
He saw no prospect for a let up
of the race for armaments in the
immediate future.

CARIBOO ROAD IN
BJOJONDITION
Two Big Slides,  One at  Mud
Hill and One at 103-Mile
Hill
Quesnel, Nov. 15.—The condition of the Cariboo road is worse
at present than it has been at any
time this season. There are two
big slides on it now, one at the
103-Mile hill in addition to the
one at Mud hill. All kinds of vehicles have been tied up, and in
fact the road is almost impassible.
The driver of ope car which arrived here last week states that
one day he only made two and a
half miles. His machine would
only nicely get out of one rut before it would slide into another,
and some of them were two feet
deep.
The recent snow storms, which
melted as fast as they fell, have
not improved matters for the
teamsters.
NO CABINET CHANGES
Report Sent Out From Ottawa
As to Minister of Justice is
Unfounded
Ottawa, Nov. 5—The Evening
Journal says: The story sent out
regarding impending changes iu
the cabinet, involving the appointment of Hon. C. J. Doherty
to the chief justiceship of the supreme court to be succeeded as
minister of justice by Hon. Arthur Meighen, with other shuffles
in the cabinet i9 wholly without
foundation.
The story was given an absolute denial at the office of the acting-premier, Hon. Mr. G. E. Foster, this rrtorning.' No cabinet
changes are under comtemplation.
The story is not a new one, and
is based on the rumor circulated
some time ago that Sir Charles
Fitzpatrick, chief justice of the
supreme court, would be given a
permanent seat upon the judicial
committee of the Imperial privy
council, and would be succeeded
in the supreme court by Mr. Doherty.

Jaune Cache, is inhabited principally by men doing station work.
Tete Jaune Cache was   ne
most picturesque railway cam
in western Canada.  The provincial police of British Columbia insisted upon law and order and
they inforced the regulations   to]
the'letter.  The Cache, which received its name by being the base
of supplies for a tow-haired explorer  known   as  Jasper,   who
made friends with the Indians in
the   Yellowhead   1'ass   country,
long before the lirst invasion by
white   engineer.-, a half century
ago, is the head of navigation on
the   Fraser   river.   All   freight,
building supplies, provisions and
machinery for Fort George and
toints farth r west must be trans-
I ipped there and taken down the
f er, either by scow,   steamer, j
I gasoline-driven boats.
The scows are built     :
lumber, the con being comparatively low.   They are floated to
Fort George, where they are un-'
loaded and sold at an average of
$20 each.  The lumber is used by
homesteaders and others.   Three
steamboats,   two of which   are
owned by Foley Bros., Welch &
Stewart, and thc other by the B,
C. Express   Company,   carry   a
large portion of the freight that
is sent down, while several privately-owned gasoline boats alsi
do a profitable   business    ' Ine
company, whose passei gei   accommodations rival that oi tin-
big ocean liners in comfort, make-
sufficient profits yearly to pay ior
its boats in the first year of operation.   The cost of   transporting
freight from the Cache to   Fort
George is $70 a ton.
When the trains are open ti ;
through to Fort George fr mi
Edmonton the shipping, wliich is
the only reason for the existence
of Tete Jaune Cache, will disappear, Already the contractors
are moving farther west, and as
their business comprises about
three-fourths of that done in tin-
town, the change will not be long
in coming.

The Grand Trunk Pacific
Railway Company's sale of
lots in Prince George, the
Railway's second freight
and passenger division
headquarters in British Columbia, just come to a close
at Vancouver and Edmonton, brought Two Million
Dollars. In the words of
the Vancouver Province, of
September 20, this sale "set
the highest record for an
auction sale on the Coast
and, it is believed, the highest sale of its kind anv-
where."
The highest price paid for
a double corner in this
Grand Trunk Pacific town
was $14,200. This double
corner is only a few blocks
from the railway station
but over a mile and a quarter from the nearest settlement. The big prices for
lots were paid for property
near the station, near the
proposed improvements by
the railway company, but
far from the nearest settlement,
This fact establishes conclusively that people have
confidence in Grand Trunk
Pacific towns; that these
towns, planned by the railway company, will grow
and so enhance property
values in them, and that the
first values in these new
towns are created by the
improvements planned for
them by the railway company.*
The sale proved another
significant fact and that is
that people, who know the
conditions, are willing to
pay $14,200 for a lot in a
new town, a town yet to be
built simply on the assurance of the railway company that the town is to be
a freight and passenger division    headquarters   with
Prince George
I have a large Hat of lots all over the town-
site among which are some exceptionally
good buys. Before buying come in and see
our list, or phone Double six.

Prince George is the second
division point of this nature
on the main line 0f ■_(,,
Grand Trunk Pacific in Brit-
ish Columbia. The first is
Smithers, half-way between
Prince George and Prince
Rupert, named after the
highest official of the railway, Mr. Alfred Waldron
Smithers, Chairman of its
Board of Directors.
Smithers is the only freight
and passenger division
point on the main line of the
Grand Trunk Pacific between its Pacific Coast terminus and Prince George.
Smithers, like Prince
George, is the railway company's townsite.
Smithers is the dominating
centre of the rick Bulkley
Valley, with some 300,000
acres of fertile agricultural
land, the first large agricultural area on the railway
East of Prince Rupert. It
is in the heart of a rich mineral belt. It is surrounded
by unlimited waterpower.
The same opportunity that
made   people   invest Two
Million Dollars in two short
three-day sales in lots at
Prince George, is now offered you by thc railway company at Smithers.
Lots in Smithers are  not
being sold at auction. They
have been priced low by the
railway company to insure
rapid settlement   and  development.     Prices   range
from $100 to $500 for single
lots   and   from   $250   to
$1200 for double corners.
Where the opportunity at
Prince George took thousands, a similar opportunity
at Smithers can be had with
as   many   hundreds.   The
time to take advantage is
now.

Edmonton, Nov. It.— To be
working on a construction gang,
earning about $2.50 a day, and to
be worth almost $100,000 and not
yet know it. Such is believed to
be what Ferdinand Holzer, of
Aberdeen, South Dakota, is doing
at the present time. The solicitors acting for the legatees of
Holzer's father believe that Holzer is working on a construction
gang near Edmonton, Their client
is worth almost $100,000, and they
cannot find him.
Yesterday the Royal Northwest Mounted Police were asked
to try and locate him. He is about
49 years of age, weighs 145 lbs.,
has a dark complexion, snapping
dark eyes, slightly stooping
shoulders, and has a peculiar hitch in his walk. He is descrbed
as beng fond of card playng, and
he left Minnesota about eight
years ago for the Northwest.
Some little time since a letter was
received from him bearing an Edmonton postmark, in which he
stated he was going on a construction gang some little way
out of the city.
Anyone sending information of
his whereabouts to Henry Neill,
Aberdeen, S. D., will get a reward of $1000.
