Mr. J. D." McNiven Completes
Tour Over Construction Line
la. the East—No Cause
for Complaint.
UL100ET Tift
>r»ry ot Legislative
peembly
Registered at the Northern Hotel,
early this week, was Mr. J. D. McNiven Fair Wages Officer, ol the Department of Labour, Ottawa, whose
business it is to Investigate the conditions of the labour employed in
railroad and other large engineering
ventures.
Mr. McNiven has just completed a
trip over the construction work between here and Tete Jaune Cache.
Leaving Vancouver on February thc
first be went to Edmonton, and from
there to the end of steel. In the construction zone Mr. McNiven visited
every camp between here and Tete
Jaune Cache. To The Herald, he
stated that whilst he would not discuss actual conditions, as. his report
had not yet been filed with his department, he would state tbat he had
found conditions in the camps on the
upper river excellent. The complaints
which have been made, he stated,
were much exaggerated.
Mr. McNiven was the officer of tht
Labour Department who was sent
into the Bulkley valley last year at
the time of the 1. W. W. strikes in
that section. The chief complaint,
then, was the food in the camps. Mr.
McNiven visited these camps and investigated the complaints, b/t could
not find them justified.
Asked regarding the attitude of the
labour employed up the river, Mr.
McNiven stated that there should be
no cause for apprehension,.
Tbe I. W. W. has representatives
all along the line, but so far as The
Herald can ascertain ,,there, is little,
danger ot a strike, although there
have been rumors that such was in,
prospect. There la no cause for the
moat imaginative strike-promoter to
advance tor demanding a walk-out,
and it conditions continue to prevail
as they are at present labour troubles will not further delay the G. T.
P.
Mr. McNiven called at The Herald
office to aee hie old friend, W. J.
Mackay, of whose demise he had not
heard until notified at this office. As
an old newspaperman, Mr. McNiven
was exceedingly sorry to hear ot the
death ot the late Mr. Mackay. They
were room-mates, years ago, when
both were employed on the Vancouver World.
Mr. McNiven left on Monday's
stabe for Vancouver. He will make a
trip thla aummer from Hazelton over
the line aa far aa this place.
THE HERALD GETS ACTION
IN ALBERTA CAPITA!
Says the Edmonton Journal, editorially:
"The Fort Qeorge Herald speaks
ot 'the moribund crowd of wholesalers in Edmonton," at the heads
of whom the district has been throwing its trade. 'We do. not believe,' it
adds, 'that there is a firm doing
business here that will not have some
commodoties to order ln tbe navigable season, and we know that there
ia not one in ten'ol these houses
that have any information as to
where their order will receive the
best attention in Edmonton.' Invitations like this (continued the Journal) to cbme and sell people something, don't come to business men
every day, and it looks «s If it would
be well worth the while of those engaged in different commercial lines ln
this city to bestir themselves."
Included in the sixty teams belonging to the Carlton Construction outfit which arrived here this week, are
about twenty pair ot mules, the finest specimens ot the hybrid animal
ever teen in these parta. Many of the
horses, too, are magnificent animals
and judging from their appearance
have received good care aad atten-

ONJIAIEM L'NE
Vice-president Tate Announces
That Depot Will be Located
Conveniently - titizens
Greatly Relieved.
One of the first places in British
Columbia to secure immediate benefit from the construction of the Pacific Great Eastern Railway is Lillooet, it having been decided by the
heads of the railway to locate a
depot on the west side of the Fraser
River, leading up to the centre of
the old town. No official announcement of this intention on the part
of the company was made until Mr.
D'Arcy Tate, vice-preBident of the P.
P. G. E. gave the information to the
press last weeTt. The proposal and the
cordial hearing it received from the
railway officials has been responsible
ior creating a brighter feeling among
the inhabitants.
Mr. Tate, admitted frankly that it
was the company's Intention to locate a depot at Lillooet. "Yes" he
said, "it is our object to give as
much assistance and convenience to
Lillooet as possible. We regard it as
a rather important district and naturally we desire to make the beBt
use of it consistent with our extensive plans". In speaking more particulary of the location of the depot,
Mr. Tate pointed out that the railway yards are at the present time
located on the east side of the river,
but that the proposed depot would
be placed on the west side, where it
will be of the greatest utUity and
convenience. As to how much money
will be spent upon thiB work, or
when it is proposed to start operations, Mr. . Tate could not say,
other than to state that It would,
of course, be done in conjunction
with the rest of the construction
work.
■ The idea ot having a new depot at
Lillooet, while primarily belonging
to the Pacific Great Eastern, found
a ready response among the residents
of the town. When It began to be
spoken of as a possibility the citizens got together and discussed it,
and as a result of these conferences
a meeting was arranged with the
vice-president of the line, Mr. Tate
himself. As both sides were anxious
to bring the idea to fruitltion as rapidly as possible, and no difficulties in
tbe shape ot terms were encountered,
Mr. Tate dispatched an engineer to
look over the situation and pick out
the most suitable Bite. Thla was
done last week. Mr. Gallagher, the
engineer, and a number ot the prom-
the ground, and finally selecting
inent men ot the town, going over
what is said'to be an ideal site on
the west side of the river and only
a few minutes distant from the centre ot, the town.
Messrs. Patrick Welch and J. W.
Stewart, the two other heads ot tbe
railway arrived in Victoria last week
to confer with Mr. Tate In regard to
'he legislation passed by the pro-
Tincial parliament during the paat
session.
These matters were the Increased
»ate of interest on the railway bonds
'rom four to four and one-half per
-sent, and the slight diversion of the
'ine from the original plan. Formal
approval was given. There was also
i general discussion on progress and
'he various elements connected with
't, but Mr. Tate stated that apart
'rom the matters referred to there
vas nothing to report.
Mr. Welch, without laying himself
out to be Interviewed, said that the
vork of construction was progressing
satisfactorily. Several new camps
Have been located between Newport
and Lillooet, - and the preliminary
hualness of getting the track ready
'or steel is rapidly progressing.
.1 BOOTLEGGER
GOES TO JAIL
Clean-up in Alberta Town Evidently Involves Officials Who'
Are Said to be in League
With Bootleggers.
Over $700 was collected in fines
last week in Edmonton trom persons
concerned in the recent raid on the
boot-leggers in Edson, which wbb
carried out by R. S. Stafford, of tbe
Alert Detective Agency, and Town
Constable Tatham. Inspector Raven,
of the mounted police of Edmonton,
went west to hear the cases. The
principal in the case was Frank
Henri, proprietor of Cotton's restaurant who was fined $435 and costs
with an alternative of twelve months
imprisonment for selling liquor without a licence. The fine and costs were
paid. For running a house of ill-fame
Henri was sentenced to four months
imprisonment without the option of
a fine.
Mildred Howell for selling liquor
without a licence was fined $150 and
costs, and for keeping a house of 111
fame she was fined $45 and costs. The
fines and costs in both cases were
paid. Margaret Clark and Mignon
Martin, charged with being inmates,
were each fined $25 and costs. A similar charge against Grace Bedford
was dismissed, there being Insufficient evidence.
Detective Stafford, who Is charged
with shooting a bystander when effecting the arrests, did not appear on
the day the case came up before Mr.
Bradley, justice of the peace, acting
on the advice of his solicitor. Application was made by the solicitor"
for the prosecution, to have the bail
of $1,000 estreated, but thiB was refused and the case adjourned for
eight days.
A remarkable situation exists at
Edson In connection with the affair,
etiauord, who was acting aa tempor-
are chief of police on the Instructions
ot Mayor Lawrence, has been paid
off, while town constable Tatham,
who was dismissed by the council,
has been reinstated by the mayor.
There seems to be a continual war
between the council and the mayor,
each undoing what is done by the
other. An effort Is on foot to institute proceedings against the mayor.
The town is very much excited over
the whole affair and it Is freely alleged that some citizens are In league
with the bootleggers.

An^engineering party left the coaBt
last week to aurvey the extension of
the Pacific Great Eastern to bring it
In to touch with the town ol Lillooet. The Fraser River will be crossed by a 1,006-foot bridge over a
mile below Lillooet. It will then
follow the east bank of the Fraser
for about twenty-three mlles before
swinging eastwards to the table
lands. The river will not be touched
again until the vicinity of Quesnel is
reached. The line as provisionally
determined by preliminary surveys
will ascend the upper reaches of the
Bonapart river after leaving the
Fraser north of Lillooet. It will traverse the LacLaHache Valley and the
Williams Lake district before reaching Quesnel. Construction will be
lighter than If the Fraser were followed the whole way, and, in addition, a fine agricultural country will
be opened up.
North of Quesnel the line will in a
general way follow the Eraser river.
It will make'frequent crossings and
thus necessitate the construction ot
a number of bridges. The aurvey
party now in the field below here will
soon be augumented by four or five
additional parties, and the location
of the line between Lillooet and this
place will be rushed over, the entire
distance of 290 miles during the coming spring and aummer. In addition
to .the work now in progress, west
of the Fraaer, construction work will
be pushed vigorously northward trom
Lillooet thla aummer. on the east
bank ot the Fraaer, and on the ascent
to the high   table lands.
There ls one glad man in the province who rejoicos in the capture of
the Indian murderers, Paul and Spit-
lam, who murdered a Chinaman and
a police officer near Clinton. The
tragedy of the shooting of Constable
Kindness at Clinton last May will
be remembered by our readers.. The
editor of this paper was standing
trial on a libel charge at Clinton on
the day the shooting occurred. Constable Kindness was on duty in tho
court room at the time he was called out to take the trail of tlie men
who were accused of the murder of a
man named William White and a
Chinaman near Clinton. Word was
brought into Clinton by a rancher
named Truan that he had rode into
the Indians' camp whilst hunting
horses. A posse was immediately
organized to take up the hunt, and
they struck the Indians camp after
a few hours travelling. Just why the
posse rode right into the camp is
not known, but the place bore signs
of desertion, and two played-out
cayuses were browsing close by with
long tether lines on them. Constable
Kindness was in the lead, and aa he
gained the camp one of the In/tfans
rose from behind a log and shot him
dead as he sat his horse. Forrest
Loring, another ot the posse, rode
for shelter, and was shot ln the arm.
The outlaws escaped to the bills,
and were not captured until they
were recently given up to the-authorities by the chief of their tribe,
who was influenced in his action by
the chiefs of various tribes in the
vicinity. In recognition of the action
by these tribal authorities the government has ordered medals to be
made and distributed amongst them.
There is still the disposition of
the reward of $3000 to be determined
although it is generally understood
that the reward money will be employed in hiring the best attorney
to be secured for the price, to conduct the defense.
Accompanying the posse who went
out after the Indian at the time of
the murder was John Pollard of the
Pollard ranch, near Clinton. He has
been summoned as a witness, and
with his,brother Thomas, who helped track the Indians after the crime
was committed, is now in Vancouver. Another summons is out, but
has not yet been served, for Charles
Truran, who gave the information
which resulted in the forming of the
posse, and the killing of Kindness.
Mr. Truran stated to the coast presf
recently that he would certainly ap
pear at the trial and tell what be
knew regarding the bandits. Becaus*
he "gave them away", he was forced
to Bell his ranch near Clinton, am
is at the present time loser about,
$1200. While the posse was still or
tbe track of the murderers they vis
ited his home for the purpose o
killing him, and not finding hin
broke everything breakable in th<
house, and stole all his supplies
These facts were reported at th
time.
Truran could not live in safety a
his home while the bandits were a'
large, and sacrificed bis ranch on ac
count of their threats and depreda
tlons.

Superintendent of Construction
I [Decides  on] Location '„ This Zi
-\ Week—Later Will be on
Fraser River.
H. J. Fotter, superintendent of the
eastern end of construction for Foley
Welch & Stewart, arrived here from
Tcto Jaune on Sunday last. Mr. Fetter came down by team in six days.
Superintendent Fetter sottled the
matter of thc location for the docks
and warehouses to be used this sum
met- for loading and unloading the
steamboats and scowb Irom up-river,
by placing tlierr- at the mouth of the
slough which runs Into the Indian
Reserve above Peden's Island on the
Nechaco. The expected location of the
buildings on the Hudson's Bay property adjoining South Fort George
will not take place at present, but
we understand that dockB will be located there for the construction of
the Pacilic Great Eastern.
When interviewed by The^Herald on
the matter last Monday Mr. Fetter
said: "The docks and warehouses
will be located at the mouth of the
slough on the Indian Reserve. Mr.
Hardie and myBelf decided on the exact location this morning." Asked
for a reason for the decision aB
against the decidedly more desirnb'e
and practicable site on the Hudson's
Bay Company's land, Mr. Fetter said
"We prefer the docks to be on the
railroad company's land, and; in
fact they too desire this as it will
facilitate the handling of the material needed in the actual townsite
development. It is possible, however,
that the Fraser rivcr location will
be brought into use in future operations."
The location is on that portion of
the Prince George townsite to t>*
north-east of the tracks, th"t Is
given over to tho company's workB.
To place the buildings at any accessible spot on th^ Fraser River wo"ld
interfere with the actual townsite
land.
Work on these buildings will commence immediately under Contractor
George Hardie, who has full charge
of the work. The location of MeBBrs.
Foley, Welch & Stewart's executive
offices has not yet been made, but
will be known in a few days.
Mr. Fetter returned to the Cache
early in the week. He will return
here early in the Bpring, and will be
accompanied by Mrs. Fetter.

(3) Notwithstanding anything in this section contained, the voters' list by
this Act cancelled shall be the list of voters to be used at any election that
may be held prior to the certification and printing of the first register of
voters prepared under authority of this Act.
There appears to be no veiled menace to the political well-being
of the Liberal party. The same laws of registration are applicable as heretofore. In no manner is the franchise of any eligible
vjter endangered unleis through the tardiness of the voter himself.
The necessity of cancelling the lists after periods of reasonable
time have elapsed will be apparent. The lists, after years of revision and constant alteration, are bound to carry a certain superfluous volume of listed names belonging to deceased constituents
and to voters who have left the district. The cancellation of the
voters' lists frees them of this excessive material.
On the political associations of the province will largely fall the
work of reconstructing the lists. This work is being carried
forward as speedily as possible in this section. It will be readily-
understood, however, that in such districts as this, concerted and
vigorous action is necessary in order to complete the lists by the
seventh of April, from which date they will be suspended until
after the holding of a court of revision on the nineteenth day of
May next.

JOHN ANDERSON FRASER, M.P.P., who has been delving
into the ancient history of Old Cariboo, delivered a very interesting oration in the Legislature the other day. Whilst there
appears nothing in the speech calculated to influence the policy of
the Government in matters of moment, Mr. Fraser's address was
undoubtedly listened to with a great deal of interest by the assemblage, and this interest was even reflected in the editorial
calumns of the Victoria papers, whilst the eloquence of the deputy
speaker, who spoke the same day, was swallowed in oblivion, so
far as the newspapers were concerned.
Mr. Fraser dwelt upon the early glories of Cariboo, and the
present wonderful prospects of the district, old and new. He
showed that in the days when this country was first invaded by
the officers of the Northwest company, that agriculture was practiced for the first time in British Columbia, then New Caledonia.
He dwelt upon the wonders of the gold-strewn creeks, and he declared the district on a par with any earthly paradise in British
Columbia.
These happenings were long ago. When Cariboo was the only
white-populated section of New Caledonia the present generation
was still unborn. Yet it is strange that the oldest settled section
of such a vast, rich province has remained so long undeveloped
by railway enterprise.
However, another New Caledonia now on the map is a French
penal colony inhabited by criminals and Kanakas, and surrounded
by i.ink coral reefs, south of the Tropic of Capricorn in the Pacific
Ocean. Things have changed. Over thirty years ago the Canadian Pacific Railway company sent survey parties into this district
to discover a route for the line, The surveys were run, but the
line was finally located through Rogers Pass, far to the south,
ar.d Cariboo again went to sleep, Seven years ago the first Grand
Trunk Pacific surveyors entered Cariboo and also sought out a I
line. They wandered as far north as the Pine River Pass, and {
finally located the greatest transcontinental line on the North
American continent through the Yellowhead Pass.
Not until tbis week have the patiently-waiting pioneers of this
piace witnessed the actual invasion of the construction army.  The
ends of the steel are crawling closer to Prince George day by day.
Swarms of men of every nationality come and go.    The giant
shovels scattered up and down the river tear their way through!
the thin line of land that has been set aside for the route of the
Grand Trunk Pacific.   The sun rises and sets, the icy grip of''
winter dutches the land and vanishes with the coming of spring,:
but the steel giants work on incessantly,  tearing their way!
to,sards the last cut on the road by the light of day or [the glare
of the flaring acetylene torches by night.
Cariboo is coming into its own.
The sum of $750,000 appears in the Estimates for the survey of]
Crown lands.   This is a very necessary appropriation,  for it is!
important that the province should be thoroughly surveyed as'
soon as possible.   The Lands Department will then be in possession of reliable data to give intending settlers, as surveyors are
expecte 1 to give an intelligent and detailed description of the land
where they have been at work,

to be
Cariboo has every reason
proud of the manner in which her
senior member acquitted bimselt in
placing before tbe country the greatness of ber potentialities in the
course of his interesting speech in
the debate.on the..budget, recently.
Not only was Mr. Eraser's address a
comprehensive. and patriotic testimonial to tbe reaourcefulnesa of the
district which be efficiently represents. It was at the same time original in conception and treatment, of
better literary standard than the
vast majority of such deliverances,
and of more than passing historical
importance, so much as to win ior
its author the special commendation
oi thc Capital press.
After the customary   compliments
and recognition of the ability shown
in administration since Sir Richard
McBride assumed  charge   of British
Columbia's destinies now ten years
ago, Mr.   Fraser   dwelt pretatorily
upoii the great agricultural possibilities contained   in tne vaBt district
represented by Dr. Callanan and himself, in addition to which, he said,
Cariboo contained every form of natural resource of' which the -Province
is the treasure house. With regard to
the fur industry' which ftwt attracted white men to British Columbia,
and which is still- flourishing, he held
that in   view of  the rising market
for   the   product,   the   government
might well consider means to derive
additional revenue from this source.
Stock raising was' another industry
eapable of immense   expansion, and
lu this connection it' was .pointed out
that the recent excellent reports of
the Lands    Department Bhows over
one hundred million acres of pastoral
land in Cariboo alone. Of the timber
resources of the district, more than
half were still in possession ot the
Crown and practically none yet cut.
In mining, the district was still pro*
during placer gold as lt had' been for
the last fifty   years, nor   were the
diggings by any means worked out.
In the old days three ounces of gold
to the set were expected: nowadays
a return of ten cents to tbe pan was
profitable. On the Quesnel alone thare
were about    3,000,000,000    yards of
pavel that would yield ten cents tc
tbe yard, or a return in tha total ol
1300,000,000 from the gravel of that
stream alone. And that waa a fraction of the total, awaiting transport
facilities ln the northern i land.
"And now Mr. Spaaker," the member for Cariboo continued, "I should
like to touch upon'another part ol
the historic old district of .Cariboo.
I refer to the   grand!   country surrounding    Fraser   lake and Stuart
lake. In one sense this is the oldest
part of thiB   great constituency, in
another sense it is the newest. It was
the first part of the mainland to be
settled and it was the last to be developed. Here in tha earliest years of
the nineteenth century, tbe intrepid
advance guard of that wonderful organization known in history as the
Korthwest Company established the
drat rude posts ever built in the Interior to   the    west of the   Rocky
mountains.   Here    the    redoubtable
Simon Fraser—in the year8 1805 nnd
1807—laid the    foundations of Fort
McLeod on McLeod   lake,   Fort 8t-
Jamcs on Stuart Lake, Fort Fraaer
on Fraser lake, and. Fort Oebrge at
the mouth of the Nechaco river. All
these places have existed from that
day to   this,    and about   them all
cluster historic    memories. Here in
this, as it  waa then,   isolated district, from   time    immemorial   the
home of the Carrier   Nation .of the
Western Dene stock, the British flag
was flung to the breeze for the first
time in the vast territory lying, between the Rocky mountains, and the
coast or Cascade range.  For many
years the fur trader held undisputed
s*ay in this district. As he plied up
and down the Fraser river,* the great
fluvial   artery of   the Northern Interior, he little dreamed as he passed
the mouth of the Quesnel river (so
named by Simon Fraser more than
a century ago) that within seventy
miles nature   had hidden    fabulous
treasures which in after years were
to be brought.to light by the unexampled heroism, and astounding en-
?rsy of the pioneer miners-of 1869,
I860, and 1861.   ■ • ■■<
"First of all if waa the fur trade
that brought men to Cariboq, and for
half a century the trader followed
his avocation without interference
from the outside. Then came the dis-
•overy of gold and' a new era dawned
'or this great western country because of that discovery which -lured
men from all parti' of tba''' World to
"'In farthest verge of tbe Hpaplre and
made the establishment otfMe Crown
Colony of British CdtttfbU both a
Political possibility aad;*a..political
necessity. Thie dts<-o*wy* and Its
subsequent exploitation • laid' the
'oundatlona of our Body politic and
Paved the way for Confederation eind
the unification of the British Nortb
American possessions in the great
lominlon of Canada.
"So, Mr Speaker, on historical,
grounds aa well as because of its
vast natural reaourcea, its magnificent climate and its manifold attractions for the sportsman and the
Home-builder, I can say without fear
our hands. No one would be so churl
ish as   to refuse    to recognize the
fact that the district of New Cariboo
was an all important factor in the
up-building of our country.       I am
proud to represent   in this   Parliament that .magnificient district, the
pioneers of which have done so much
toward making our.history what it
is—a  record of   great achievement.
It is with a deep sense of the responj
sibility attaching    to my   position
that I oiler these remarks touching
a district    for which the future Is
so -rich in .promise. As for .that future I venture to say that the development of Cariboo .will astonish the
Members of this House and the people of this province;   Look where I
will over this broad land of ours, I
Bee for no other*'part of it greater
prosperity or   happier conditions in
the future for all   classes than for
this same wi'le-extcnding and prince^*
ly endowed district of Cariboo which
it is my privilege   to sorvo in this
Legislature,
"That brings me, Mr. Speaker, to
another point   upon which I would
like to offer a few remarks. I have
spoken of the    matters which have
given Cariboo a name and a place in
the history of the west. I have referred briefly to the fur trade—which
after all these years still is prosperous; of mining—which is on the eve
of great development:    But I have
said nothing of. the   assured future
for agriculture ln the district. It is
commonly supposed, I believe, that
is outside of the comparatively few
people who have personal knowledge
respecting this phase of our development,   that the   reputation of Old
Cariboo rests    upon its mines and
minerals and its historic past. When
we call to mind its history, this perhaps is a not unnatural assumption.
But, sir, let me say at once and as
forcibly as I can that there are today no more fertile lands, lands better adapted to the growth of all cereals, fruits and vegetables, than ate
to be found  -throughout the length
and breadth of this noble heritage.
Then there    are, too,   our grazing
'ands, which yield an abundance of
pasture for cattle, sheep and horses.
Why, sir, even   as the news of the*
discovery   of gold    in the   Quesnel
river, on Antler creek, on Keithley
creek, on Grouse creek, on Williams
creek, hurtled across the continent-
even as this    startling   rumor was
wafted over the ocean to all men in
ill. lands—sturdy pioneers tilled the
wil of Cariboo, and tbe farms then
"stablished   gave    bountiful returns
to their fortunate owners, and today
•they are   still   yielding'   handsome
orofits. All along   the Yale-Cariboo
road    of historic    memory, and in
many other places which I am sorry
to say are not as well known in the
cities of the Province as tbey should
be, are splendid farms and ranches.
I should like to say tn this connection that no other district in the province offers the agriculturist' and the
stock-man a better field for their industry than does Old Cariboo. When
I call to    mind the    fertile   lands
awaiting   development    and when. I
remember what has already been ac-.
complished in spite    of tbe lack of
transportation    facilities, and lines
of communication, when I recall all
that bas been   accomplished by our
sturdy pioneers in the face of great
obstacles, I cannot; but wax enthusiastic concerning the    future of agriculture'in that section, of British
Columbia.
"We hear a great deal these days
of the splendid resources ot the Okanagan; of the valley of the lower
Fraser; of the benches of the Skeena;

the Deputy Speaker, like Cincinnati
of old, tills    the soil and so finds

the agricultural glory ot Comox, and
even good cometh out ot Nazareth,

Of the magnificient agricultural productions of    each and  all of these
places we read glowing accounts in

word to say against these reports,
because I believe    them    all—every
word of them. I could go further and
aay that I do not believe that the
truth has been told by bait. I am
quite prepared,   aa a   loyal British
Columbian to   endorse all that haa
been written upon tbe subject; but,
Mr. Speaker, I yield to no district in
tbe province the palm over Cariboo,
because that district has been tried
and proved. ■
"And that brings me to yet another point. When all the vother districts
of the province were in their swaddling clothes—agriculturally I mean
of course—one part of Old Cariboo,
the area to which I referred a few
moments ago—that about Fraser and
Stuart lakes, was known among the
pioneer fur traders for its excellent
gardens and even grain was grown to
success in that locality. Little as it
is known, Mr. Speaker, Cariboo 4s
tbe time honored father of the agricultural district ot British Columbia. Long, long before the crown
colony joined hands with the Dominion of Canada—long, long before ever
thii land became a crown colony—

1, wer. fields and gardens at Port
st James and Port Fraser, and, Sir
l*t me
add tbat the observationa of
eur pione*51'
farmer, the first man, as
ir «. our records show, to cultivate
"*, portion of the territory, now
«Uad in the Mainland of the
„rovinee-the observations of tnis
Lgotten worthy, who helped to lay
th, foundations of this great social
fabrle go to-prove my own conten-
tion that the soil of the oldest part
0, newest Cariboo is as fertile aa
any be found within our bounds.
,'Thc other day I happened to be
looking over a very old and exceed-
lnglT valuable historical document,
Md ln turning over its pages I came
scrosi an authentic record of these
»*rlj farming operationa. Mr. Speaker, our first farmer on tha mainland
WM Daniel Williams Harmon, of the
Northwest Company. He farmed in
Cariboo, on a small scale it is true
over a hundred years ago. I trust,
Sir, that I shall not weary the Honorable members if I read a few extracts from this most Interesting olc*
record of a long forgotten day ant'
gmwation. First of all I would .call
your attention to the fact that this
historical document shows that our
agricultural operationa began witb
the sowing of seed at Fort St Jameson Wednesday, May 22, 1811 aa lt is
proved by the following entry in
Harmon'B journal: 'As tha frost is
now out of the ground we have
planted our potatoes, and sowed
barley, turnips, etc., which are th*
first we ever sowed on* * this west
side of the mountains.' wa have no
record of the harvest of this" first
Bowing, but a tew yean later it is
duly set forth that: 'Wa have takar
our vegetables out of the ground. We
have forty-one bushels of potatoes.
tbe produce of one bushel planter*
tbe lut spring. Our turnips, barley
etc, hare produced well.' Again it
recordtd, under date of .September 2
1118, that; 'A few days since we cut
(own and threshed our barley. The
tot Quarts which I aowed on the 1st.
May, have yielded as many bushels.
Om acre of ground, producing in the
ume proportion aa this haa done,
would yield 84 bushels. This In sufficient proof that the soil ln many
places ln this quarter is favorable to
agriculture. It will probably be long
however, before it will exhibit the
fruita of cultivation.' " »
"Mr. Speaker, my only object in
calling attention to this matter is
to show that as Cariboo first opened
the eyeB of the world to tbe value of
our mineralized area ao thla Bame
district first proved that the soil ot
British Columbia is fertile and productive beyond belief, and that long
before other parts of the province
now noted as agricultural centres
«ere exploited, Cariboo pointed the
way to our modern agricultural de-.
velopment. This tact has been too
long forgotten. Today, Mr. Speaker,
wu great territory-this long forgotten part ot the Cariboo district—
ii coming into its.own. The soil
«ich old Daniel Williams Harmon
Praised a century ago will aoon astonish us Dy ; its,marvellous
-ruittuUnesB and tha high excellence
01 its products. The Orand Trunk
Pacific Railway and the Pacific Great
Eastern will open up for its immediate development an immense and fertile country. It is particulary-grat
uying to me as a British Columbian,
« a member of this House, espec*
J'ly as one ot the members for Car
"oo, that the government is alivi
o the needB of this district, and
»at it has aided rational and legitimate development in making possiblt
«» building ot a railway (the Pacific
^«at Eastern) into this section. 1
"W-U,, sir, that this line will open
UP a splendid country, which be*
oif; languished for lack of adoquate
wansportatton facilities. The govern*
?wt deserves tbe thanka ot the
Mople for IU bold and masterful

Over in Europe the people are still

Spuds grow best in a land of cool

There is little sense ln making any

The liquor men in B. O. do not
like the idea of closing their bars

In talking about the dynamite
outrages in the United States the
Fra says that Union labor, unchecked
would develop into violence and destructive anarchy, and create a tyranny far worse than the condition it
now seeks to overthrow. Socialism
is not a thing, it is a sentiment, and
this sentiment, unrestrained, abetted
and evolved, would lead to revolution, with dynamiting and destruction as a prominent, legitimate and
recognized part of the propaganda.

"(Make no haste to get rich" is one
of the wisest sayings that ever came
down the pike of time. He who plays
the wheel, the bank, the races, the
bucket shop, poker, the stock game,
the real estate delusion and hundreds
of other forms of the same evil will
sometimes have chicken to eat, but
most of the time be will only have
the feathers, with regret, misery,
remorse and despair as side dishes.

A general clean-up of the undcsire-
ables and sporting element has taken
place recently in the camps east of
Grand Canyon and west of Mile 53.
W. M. Nichols, of the Crown Tailoring Company, Toronto, left Tete
Jaune Cache on February 10th, and
arrived here this week. He is selling
suits.
Contractor ftarlton's sixty-two
freight teams arriged here this week
from thc upper river, many coming
through from Mile 53, nearly 300
miles up river. They brought down
approximately 2r>0,000tt)s of supplies and camp equipment.
Mr. Y. B. Chamberlin, brother tp
the president of the Grand Trunk
Pacific left We on Tuesday's stage
for Vancouver. He will return in the
course of a few weeks bringing Mrs.
Chamberlin witb bim to reside for
the Biimmcr ln this district.
Harry Reid, of the Foley, Welch &
Stewart staff, returned from a trip
up-river this wee*., as , far as the
Canyon. He reports busy times in
the upper camps and hundreds of
men preparing to come here with the
breaking up of thc river.
The Rev. C. M. Wright, of Knox
Presbyterian Church, announces that
a series of lantern slide reproductions of Famous Pictures of the World
will be shown in the Third Street
Hall on Thursday evening, March
20th. The pictures are excellent reproductions from such great masters
as Raphael, Remhrant, Qrenze, Rcy-
yolds, Titan, Millet, Corrigeo and
others. Fifty cents admission will
be charged.
Snow fell here again throughout
the week, assisting greatly in the
transportation problem.

showing the seating arrangement for
thc Sheridan Sftvoy boxing contest
for tho amateur championship of the
northern interior, may be seen at
The Northern Hotel, the Fort George
Drug Company, The Herald, or the
Northern Lumber Company's, store.
No reservations after noon Monday
will be held unless the reserved seats
aro paid for.
Hotel accommodation has been severely taxed during the past couple
of weeks. Hundreds of men have arrived from the camps up-river to
make a few days' stay and then on
to the new camps being established
to thc west. Scores of new arrivals
are met every day. While the navvy
ls generally credited with being a
somewhat lawless individual, the
men arriving here can be taken as
an entirely different class. Up to the
present, although perhaps a thou-
'sand men have made this town their
headquarters for various periods,
little or no lawlessness has resulted, i
All preparations are now complete for the Sheridan-Savoy boxing
contest to be staged in the Fort
George Theatre Monday evening.
Sheridan, who has been training
faithfully for the contest and who is
In excellent condition, arrived in
town yesterday and will remain until after the match. Savoy, too, says
bis condition is all that could be
desired and is in shape to put up a
faBt go. The LeBranch-AUan preliminary is arousing considerable interest and many predict that LcBranch
will defeat the active little Mon-
trealer. Seats have Bold with a rush
this week and a bumper house is assured. An extension has been made
to the stage which will' allow of
an 18-toot ring. A canvas floor covering has been laid in thc ring and
the building will be well lighted.
.This week Mrs. J. V. Matheson
formally opened what we believe to
bo the first millinery store of the
Northern Interior on Hamilton Avenue, opposite tho Empress Hotel.
Surely this Ib a sign of tho progress
and prosperity of the north. South
Fort George now has, in the Art
Millinery store, an establishment devoted entirely to feminine headwear.
We do not know much .about this
subject, but we do know that there
is a lid ln the window of the Art
Millinery which makes ub wish that
we were married so that we could
buy it and take it home to our wife
and live happily ever after.

WILLOW RIVER
BRITISH COLUMBIA
. At the confluence of the Fraser, Salmon and Willow Rivers.
The first town of importance to be established in Centra)
British Columbia on the Main line of the Grand Trunk Pacific
Railway. By those who are in close touch with the true
conditions, Willow River is regarded as being a town of
future great importance in the heart of "Canada's Inland
Empire." This fact, plus the fact that Willow River will be
an important lumbering, mining and agricultural centre,
makes property in this new town desirable from either a
^business or investment standpoint. Willow River property
has been purchased by merchants and investors throughout
Canada and United States. Although the town was only
established October 16th, 1913, a number ol lots have been
resold at decided profits, while other purchasers refuse to
sell at even twice the prices paid. The business portion only
of Willow River is now on the market—the survey of the
residence portion has recently been completed and this,portion
of the town will be placed on the market in the near future.
There are a limited number of lots available in the business
portion at the original prices. Easy Terms. No Interest.
Cleai and perfect title direct from the Grand Trunk Pacific
Railway. The Original and Official Townsite of Willow Rivor
is located on Lot 785; Station Site approved by the Board of
Railway Commissiioners March 26th, 1912, Order No. 16179.
