BELGIAN IMMIGRANTS
FOR NORTHERN 0. C.
Many are the speculations
as to the result of the immigration from that part of Europe
which is now the centre of the
war. It is certain that a great
majority of the population in
| countries will have to face the
task of starting all over again,
as their homes and farms will
be wiped out by the devastion of
the war.
That the colonization companies of Canada are alive to this
opportunity is borne out by the
fact that several agents are now
busy in the European countries
telling of the possibilities of this
province.
C. E. Jenney, general agent in
the passenger department of the
Grand Trunk Pacific, has received word that Charles Paget,
whom the railway company sent
to Rotterdam to spread the gospel of Northern British Columbia, has arrived at his destination and was busy with the work

In a few days the work of

Looking from Fourth and

Paris, demand an indemnity of $1,000,000,000 payable in

perity up to the declaration of
war, that the slackening up from
the high pressure of the year
and a half previous is hard to
become used to.
Those who look far into the
future and plan ahead, who are
not alarmed by temporary disturbance, but see clearly the business opportunities that are to
materialize after this war and
financial depression is over, are
calmly adjusting themselves to
the present conditions, dividing
what they have with their employees, not cutting oft" any more
than can be helped, realizing the
other fellow has to live also, and
above all refusing to join in the
swan songs of some who seem to
have become panic stricken.
lt is wonderful the optimism
of some people, and the good
heartedness of men and women
alike. While no such distress is
apparent here as in other civic
centres, and as one of our readers remarked this last week there
is no such thing as starvation or
real distress in our midst, still
everyone is on the lookout to
help tht- most likely cases, and a
feeling of help-the-other fellow
prevails universally.
This spirtt will come nearer to
bringing conditions right than
anything else. We can so think,
act and talk as to bring on an
artificial depression, that is not
real.

FIRE PROTECTION
AND WATER SUPPLY
No two essentials are so important in the development
and growth of a city as Water und Fire Protection. The
one safeguards the health of a community, the other its
material interests. No one element is so utterly destructive as fire, and in the fear of this menace our people are
justly distrubed.
The community as a whole has grown very fast the past
year, the southern and western portions of the town by
public subscription and generosity have built up fire chemicals, fire brigades, with necessary paraphenalia to fight
incipient fires successfully, and they have done splendid
work in stamping out the dread scourge and preventing

entirely inadequate.
Also by reason of our un-incorporated state, the citizens
are debarred from the power of raising funds for these
necessities, and the Chemical Engines and Extinguishers
recently secured by public subscription will not suffice.
The danger is very great. A loss by fire at this state of
development would be so serious as to delay and set back
the progress of the city. Already what building has been
done has been accomplished by much sacrifice and hardship
and a fire would utterly break and bankrupt the present
pioneers in this great undertaking, making it necessary for
the future building to be started all over again very largely by new comers, as the present workers would have been
so badly hurt and discouraged, few would think of starting
again under such circumstances.
For this reason the Chamber of Commerce composed of
the business men of all the towns, all having vital interests
have held meetings and sent a representative to the
Government as reported in the columns of the Herald, and
with the result that the following resolution has been
forwarded to the Government:

J. M. LAWRENCE, 20S5. Cremazie St., MONTREAL.
Sept. 26-5t.
Dear Sir and Gentlemen,
On August 01st, M4 we passed a resolution;
as follows:
" Resolved that Mr. W. G. Gillett be requested to
lay before the Government the urgent necessity
of adequate fire protection for the closely built up
district of George Street and vicinity, where buildings are erected to a valuation of approximately
$300,000.00, and that the Government be requested to advance or guarantee moneys for the installation of a water system where most required,
and as the Goverment's engineers may advise ;
and also call attention to the fact that within the
last 30 days there have been fires in the area
mentioned resulting in a total loss of over $25,000."
The danger to this com munity frem fire is a very real
one and is daily growing more menacing owing to the
rapidity with which the business section of Prince George
is building up.    We would respectfully maintain that our
requisition to the Government of Eritish Columbia is in no
way unreasonable, as we have no other recourse to obtain
public funds for the carrying out of the necessary work
most vital to the life and well-fare of this growing community.
We point out lhat the Government of British Columbia
have already received from this community a very considerable amount of money at recent Government"Sales
ancl that owing to the extreme present difficulty of financing, we are compelled to request our Government to undertake this work.
We understand that an estimate on this necessary work
has been prepared by your expert Col. Thompson at the
request of the Premier, Sir Richard McBride, which calls
for the expenditure of approximately $-52,000.00.
The estimate provides for an installation which will be a
unit for an ultimate permanent system for the area to be
eventually incorporati d.

Navy More Than Paying For Itself
London.-The Naval and Mili.
tary Record publishes an interests calculation showing what
would have Leen the cost to Great
Britain had prices risen owing to
any failure of the British navy to
control the enemy's fleet. The
average expenditure per head
per week is reckoned at $2 and
the probable rise at $1, which is
thought a moderate estimate.
With a population of 45,000,000
the increase would represent an
extra expenditure for food,
manufactured goods and clothing
of $60,000,000 a week. Therefore, according to the Naval and
Military Record, the navy has
saved the nation about $420,000,-
000.
Overdoing It
I knew a fellow who declared
He never, never worried.
He said that he was always
spared
Sensations fiercely flurried.
Upon the doorsteps he would
sit;
'Twas there you always found
him.
He loved to watch the sunbeams
flit
Till shadows gathered 'round
him.

In this case the Government can hardly answer "we arc
not our brothers keeper," for in their partnership of every
municipality in British Columbia they arc the largest individual holder, anil the source of relief, both in legislation
and money. In the present ('ase the advance or guarantee
of the Government is necessary to our protection nml they
have as vital an interest as the people of the district.
The Hearld received an offer this week from one of the
Rank Managers of this city to advance the needed funds up
to the amount mentioned in the above petition with the
Government guarantee, it being understood that when the
city is incorporated this charge should be transferee! to the
city, and the system installed at this time should be a nucleus
of a greater system for the entire town, spreading to South
Fort Oeorge and Central Fort (leorge. In fact the location
and grade of the territory lying between I'rince (leorge
Centre, that is the Miller Division, Hudson Ray to Soutii
Fort George alLto be parts of the incorporated City of the
(reorges would easily permit with little cost either of plant
or operation the extension into those parts of the city. To
the west into the section beyond Edmonton Street and
Central Fort George being on higher ground some other
plan would of necessity have to be worked out as was suggested by Col. Thompson, the engineer in charge of the preliminary work of mapping out the limits and system of utilities needed under the incorporation plans.
We believe the Government will see this necessity when
placed before them. In fact the plans are advanced by Col.
Thompson and we have but accepted them as the best scientific outcome of the present dangerous situation.
We can see no necessity of criticism in any direction, (towards the Government particularly), for the situation is only
of a few months standing, but if properly and consi centious-
ly placed before the authorities at Victoria, showing and
providing beyond doubt the needs of the community, they
will as readily see conditions as we in the Georges and act
accordingly. The Government being the trustee of the
public interests of all the Province,must have full information and evidence of the requirements asked for, and then
seeing that the public is to be served, we feel sure our petition will be favorably acted upon.

How is that to be ren
Some of it dated from the thirteenth century and was inimitable
by any handiworkers in the craft

other details. Moreover, their

and how can that history be imparted to a renewal.
Mr. (i. U. Ryley, Land Commissioner of the Crand Trunk
Pacific Development Company of
Winnipeg was in town several
days last week, passing through
from western towns on the system, Endace, Vanderhoof, etc.
Mr. Ryley's visit had no

is expected to be completed with
in the next two months at the
present rate of progression.
About half of the grading on
the Clinton - Fort George section

engaged in location work on the
extension beyond Fort George
into the Peace River region have
completed their season's operations. About 50 miles of the
route has been surveyed in readiness for a start on construction
beyond Fort George.

An Appeal
It has been suggested by some ladies
in the town, in order to show their
appreciation of the men's spirit in coming forward so readily to serve their
country in her time of need, that they
provide the mon with some warm clothing, preferably llannel shirts, good
woolen socks, and what is always n

New York, Following is a
communication just received
from the.second highest French
economist and one of the greatest financial authorities in Europe :
"French ban'< notes are now
selling at par in neutral countries.
German bank notes are offered
at 75. The war will rejuvenate
France as nothing else could ever
have done. He says France was
commercially going into Nirvana.
But the war has aroused the
entire nation.
"If Germany had waited ten
years and continued her commercial conquest France would
have been left far behind. Germany has been thrown back 40
years by the war. Food in
PVance is cheaper than at any
other time during the past three
years. Hoarded money is coming out and going into circulation
in buying necessities of life."
This authority estimates that
within six months Europe will
be entirely at peace.
Timber Resources of
British Columbia
In the vast forests of British
Columbia 360 billion feet of the
finest mature timber is now
awaiting manufacture. Cuttings
at present amount to less than 2
billion feet a year, which is but
a portion of the annual forest
growth. Far larger markets for
the timber, therefore, must be
found, and thus the Provincial
Government assisted by the
Department of Trade and Commerce at Ottawa, is leading the
inaustries concerned in a commercial campaign both in the existing markets and in those noW
being made accessible by the
opening of the Panama Canal.
Some of the largest mills in the
world are in British Columbia,
and the cutting and manufacture
of timber is the most important
business in the province. The
number of saw, pulp, paper, and
shingle mills is over 400, and
their output for 1913 was valued
at $30,000,000. From public
property in timber the annual
revenue received by the Provincial Treasury is nearly $3,000,000.
The supreme importance of the
forests and of the industries dependent upon them, has made the
prevention of forest fires an important matter of public policy.
Protection and administration
of British Columbia's timber
resources is entrusted to the
Forest Branch of the Government
Service. The permanent staff is
distributed through eleven forest
districts, in each of which a large
number of forest guards and
patrolmen are employed during
the dry season from May to
October. Whenever necessary
trails, look-out stations and field
telephone lines are built in order
to ensure quick mobilization of
fire-fighting crews at points of
danger. Launches patrol the
Coast and inland waters. In the
present year $350,000 is available
for this forest protective work,
while a vote of $235,000 provides
for the upkeep of the .permanent
staff, whose duties also include
such matters as the sale of Crown
timber, the supervision of logging
operations on the nine and a half
million acres of Crown timber-
land held by leases and licenses,
land classification, cc-operation
with the lumbering industry in
market extension and development of new methods of wood
utilization, and the collection of
forest revenue.
All land in the Province carrying a merchantable stand of
timber is reserved by the Crown,
the timber only being disposed of.
Information and published reJ
ports concerning the timber resources and lumbering industry
of the Province will be willingly
supplied upon application to the
Chief Forester, Victoria, B. C.
Water tor Fire f rotection
A special meeting of the Executives of the Chamber of Commerce of Prince George was held
to consider the report of Water
Supply.
Mr. Gillette recently made a
trip to the coast on private business and was requested by the
Chamber to take up with the
Government the question of a
guarantee or loan from the
Government for the installation
of a water system.
Col. Thompson engineer was
seen in Victoria and a plan suggested whereby a well could be
sunk and 10 inch mains laid to a
Stand Pipe on Connaught Park
Hill up George Street also on
Third Avenue and Fifth Avenue
with Centrifugal pumps, that
could be enlarged from time to
time and would supply the City
possibly for 5 years including
the .. iller Division to be extended through the Hudson Bay to
South.
The task at present however
is to secure immediate relief
from fire risk by a supply for
George Street and neighboring
property up to Quebec Street.
This spstem would not be
wasted in the years to come but
could be taken over by the City
becoming a part of the greater
water system as it is enlarged and
extented.
A stand-pipe of approximately
25,000 gallons capacity for a reserve supply would be a part of
the initial plant.
Pumping stations would be
located at the rail-road track for
economicel handling of fuel,
which would be coal or oil, possibly oil, as the cheaper, and the
well could be sunk on Government property in the vicinity.
The first cost sufficient to protect the city for some time would
not be over $52,000 and it is the
duty and object of the Chamber
to secure this money.
The Government Officials and
Col. Thompson, the latter having made a report on the project
were interviewed several times
by Mr. Gillette and we have encouraging statements that would
make us optimistic that it could
be secured and installed in
short time.
A committee was appointed to
get into touch with the Government at once and secure their
decision at as early a date as
possible.
A'committee on Port of Entry
and also one to take up with the
Grand Trunk Pacific the question
of proper dining and sleeping
car service between Prince
George, and Prince Rupert was
appointed, also a committee to
petition the Government for
mail service between Prince Rupert and Prince George.
Other matters of importance
were discussed all to the benefit
of the Greater City of the
Georges and it became quite
plain as the work progressed that
the summer vacation was over
and despite all outside disturbances the Chamber had again
gotten down to its work for the
coming fall and winter, when it
is expected developments of importance will follow.
