_SOUTH FORT GEORGE, B. C, SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 9, 1912.
$3 PER ANNUM
Conservative
CondemnsChan;
A special meeting of the Conservative association was held on
Wednesday night in the fire hall.
It was a gingerly meeting and
the subject was mail—the alteration of route and the non-grant-
ng of a semi-weekly one -was
;he bone around which discussion
•entered. ,
President McElroy was in the
oflailRonte
chair and there was a good attendance. After stating that
the purpose of this special meeting was to consiqer mail matters
Secretary McLaughlin was called
upon to read the correspondence
with the department and Martin
Burrell. the member, relative
thereto.
THE PRAYER
The Hon. the Postmaster-General, Ottawa:
Sir: We wired you today: "Your permission to the British Columbia Express Co., allowing them to deliver South
Fort George mail via Fort George is a great injustice to citizens of this place. Route proposed is not the right one to
render best mail service to both towns. People here very in-
dipant and realize that possibly your department is not properly informed as to the conditions here. Please'defer operations until you receive letter mailed you today, Please wire
advice as to action taken."
In confirming the above we beg to call your attention to a
few facts in connection with mail service and conditions
here.  Also to the proposed change;
South Fort George is the senior postoffice. It supplies mail
facilities for five-sixths of the entire population of the district
South Fort George does five-sixths "of the entire business
of the district, and is the natural postQffice and supply point
of the district and will remain so until the advent of the rail-1
way.
The Grand Trunk Pacific engineering staff, Messrs. Foley
Bros., Welch & Stewart, all the sub-contractors, the British
Columbia government offices, the Hudson's Bay Co., and in
fact all operators not directly interested in the Fort George
townsite, make South Fort George their base of supply and
South Fort George is their postoffice address. There is a very
evident reason for this. *
The effect of the proposed change of route, will be a discrimination against South Fort George, as we will endeavor
to show.
As you are no doult aware the forks of the Blackwater
road, at which the mail is proposed to branch from is situated about 11-4 miles from the South Fort George postoffice,
and a little over three miles from the Fort George postoffice,
the distance from the forks of the road to South Fort George
via Fort George is about 7 miles, and the distance from South
Port George postoffice to the Fort George postoffice direct. is
about 4. miles.
If the mail comes direct to South Fort George we will get
our delivery here almost two'hours earlier or the length of
time it takes the stager to travel between seven and eight
miles. The Fort George delivery will be delayed say twenty
minutes or the time it takes the stage to travel 11-4 miles,
the distance from the forks of the road to South Fort George
postoffice. If the mail is delivered at Fort George postoffice
first they will get their mail about twenty minutes earlier
and our delivery will be delayed about two hours, which
means that we will not get our mail until the following day.
The passenger traffic last winter was considerable and the
indications are that It will be much heavier this year, for
reasons already stated, a great majority of the passengers
are ticketed to South Fort George, and should the proposed
change be effected passengers for this place will be compelled to either walk from the forks of the road or subject
themselves to a two-hour additional drive.
Geo. E. McLaughlin, secretary.
A copy of this sent to Martin Burrell, the district member.
No reply has so far been received from the department,
but Burrell replied.
THE REPLY.
"Have interviewed the department, but do not feel justified in going farther, since the department has such strong
opinions as to advisability of change.";
Conservative association
«reupon went on record with
unanimous resolution "conning the action of the* gov-
ment and passing a vote of
on the member, and the
mbers pledging themselves to
"e individual letters to their

high, Though the inspector recommended the service, and led
the express company to make
the necessary innovations, the
department has not ratified the
proposal.
The association wired the department last evening the urgent
and imperative need of this service.
J. 0. Williamson was recommended by the association as the
new postmaster.
British Columbia won the first prize
for the best display of box fruit at the
Dry Farming Congress, held at Lethbridge, during the week of October 20
to 20.
II FRASER
The work of cleaning out the
Fraser is proceeding today as it
never has before. There appears
to be uniform and concerted action between the government
and railway contractors to make
the river more hospitable to river
craft. The Nechaco is of secondary consideration, a mere tributary of the big river, with less
water in it at this time of year
than a good-sized syphon would
draw up. The expenditure of
any money on this waterlet to
the neglect of the main artery
would not have been in consonance with common sense. This
is the view taken by railway contractors, who bave initiated work
above the reserve as far up as
Giscomb and south as far as the
Fort George Canyon, with intermittent work between points.
The company prosecuting this
work is styled the Fraser River
Improvement Co., the directors
of which are Feley, Welch &
Stewart The company has
working understanding with the
federal government and the
work is been prosecuted at the
instigation of the latter.
At Giscomb rapids some four*
teen men are at work under the
direction of Frank Freeman,
blasting and clearing the obstructions at that point The
work will necessitate two
months labor and the use of
many tons of powder.
Another gang of 10 men are at
work at the Indian Gardens, six
miles below town, with W. McLaren overseeing the labor. This
has been a sore point with navigators the last season, where the
greatest of difficulty was encountered in lining over, The boulders wilt be removed and a channel made deep enough so that
boats will not be delayed there
next season.
Another batch of men will be
stationed at Fort George Canyon,
under the formanship of Captain
Foster, of the Chilcotin, where
work will proceed most of the
winter in an endeavor to reduce
to a minimum the dangers at this
point.
Another change is announced
in the Fort George Drug Co. this
week. Mr. J. 0. Williamson has
bought out his partner, E. Ferguson, and will continue the
business in altered and enlarged
premises. The drugstore proper
will be extended by the removal
of the dispensing room to the
living rooms. The postoffice division will likewise be enlarged
to conform to increased demands
for space, and more boxes will be
installed.
Indians Will Receive Second
Papent for Reserve Monday
The delay in the second pay*
ment to the Fort George Indians
for the surrender to the Grand
Trunk Railway of No. 1 reserve
appears to be insight. The delay,
it appears, has been over a misunderstanding over the nature
of the buildings to be erected,
The general impression prevailing among the Indians that
the delay was caused by the nonpayment by the railway company of the balance of the purchase money is not borne out by
facts, for the same has been
available since the surrender
took place. The G. T. P. placed
it in the hands of the Indian department, Ottawa, at the consummation of the deal. The
blame rests entirely with the
red-taped Ottawa officials, who
know as little about the conditions of interior British Columbia
as they do in London. And what
they know across the water
wouldn't fill much of a book.
It will be remembered that
$125,000 was paid for the reserve.
Out of this sum $25,000 was set
apart for the erection of buildings and living quarters on the
Goose reserve. The plans and
specifications furnished by the
department at Ottawa embraced
all the luxuries of a modern California bungalo, such as cement
foundations and polished floors.
The   cost of   construction was
based on eastern prices and eastern surroundings throughout. No
attention was givjn to local conditions whatsoever. The result
of this was that tenders were received by the department running up to $90,000. With only
$25,000 provided, the department
naturally believed there was
something irregular in the matter and consequently deferred action till more information waa
obtainable. With this end in
view Inspector of Indian Agencies Cummiskey arrived here the
fore part of the week, in company with the district agent W.
J. McAllan. and traversed the
ground, studying local conditions
and holding meetings with Indians.
The result'of the visit of the
inspector, it is understood, will
be to recommend to the department the immediate payment of
the second installment due last
June, and also the transference
of the Indians from here to the
Goose reserve, and the erection
of buildings thereat suited to local conditions.
The inspector found the Indians very tractable and disposed
to considerate action.
Mr. Cummiskey left yesterday
morning for the south.
The district agent Mr. McAllan, received a wire this morning
from the department informing
him to proceed with the distribution on Monday morning. The
sum is ¥'25,000.

THE WANT OF RAILWAY
LABOR IN BRITISH
COLUMBIA
Presiding at a Grand Trunk meeting
in London on October 26, Chairman
Smithers made some ernest remarks
regarding immigration and also regarding the attitued of labor in the Dominion.
"Canada requires more capital," he
declared, "but much more she requires
ad itional labor. It seems regrettable
that the question of emigration has not
been taken up by the British Government. I am certain machinery could
be devised for the transfer of British
labor to Cauada with excellent results,
political and otherwise.
"There is a passing danger in Canada from speculation in land," he went
on, "but nothing will stop or permanently affect the progress of Canada so
long es she produces from the earth at
the existing rate and sells at the present prices. I would urge the Dominion
and Provincial Governments the necessity of encouraging immigration. The
idea among many of the laboring population of Canada that increued immigration will depreciate their wages is,
within very wide limits, utterly groundless."
Speaking about the difficulty of getting men for construction, Mr. Smithers
said:
"Towns will spring up along the line
rapidly and men who have been receiving three dollars a day discontentedly
might soon be glad to get a job at any
price. Labor could only prosper so long
u Canada, as a whole, wm prosperous
and Canada could only prosper with an
abundance of labor."
Mr. Smithers also paid a tribute to
the memory of the late President Hays,
who perished tha same week the lut
semi-annual meeting was held. During
the seventeen years Mr. Hays wu
connected with the company the value
of its property increued over twenty
millions sterling, he said.

The American elections have
resulted in giving the Democrats
a complete sweep of the country.
Wilson has been elected by the
greatest majority known in recent years. Theodore Roosevelt
was second with Taft a very
poor third. Taft only carried
four states. The Democrrts carried the state of New York, an
unprecedented event

J. B. DANIELL. Editor.
The result of Tuesday's election is no great surprise, for it
was generally admitted that Wilson would be elected. The enormous majority he obtained is the
one point of interest centered in
the triangular contest and voices
a sentiment that a fiscal trade
change is desired by the people
of the United States.
Theodore Roosevelt has achieved the end he set out to accomplish—the dethroning of the machine in the Republican party.
He has done this work so admirably that the candidate of the
old guard will never again he
heard from as a factor in United
States politics. Seldom, indeed,
has an administration received
such a stinging vote of censure
as that administered to President Taft on Tuesday. While
viewed from the standpoint of
Roosevelt he is stronger politica-
cally today than at any time in
his career, and it requires no
great stretch of visionary power
to name the next Republican candidate for the office of President
of the United States four years
hence. It certainly will be
Theodore Roosevelt. And his
success will greatly depend upon
the manner in which the Democrats govern the country the
next four years.
broadcast when it serves a minority to the palpable discomfiture

furthermore, the line of cleavage

Willow river lots appear to be going
freely. Mr. Crawford, the local agent,
reports that $7000 worth have been
disposed of here, ranging in price from
$200 to $2000. Reports from Winnipeg
rlso indicate great activity. The long
deferred sign Mr. Crawford has had
under construction for the front of his
office is now in position and adds much
to the attractiveness of the Gore &
McGregor block.
Dr. L. E. Evans left for Fraser Lake
yesterday to look over and classify
some 2000 acres of land in that vicinity
in which he is interested. The land
was staked some six years ago, and

C. K. Brown, late of Tete Jaune
Cache, but now assigned to a residency
west of the reserve some sixty miles,
left for his station this week.
F. Purvis, resident engineer on Smith
& Ramsay's contract, above Eagle
Lake, was in town on Thursday. R.
Spurr, accountant for the same contractors, was also another visitor in
the hub of the north Thursday.
Chilco is the name of the new postoffice
at the mouth of Mud river.
Dan Brew9ter has completed the
erection of the Fort Fraser government offices, and is once more in South
Port George. He arrived here last
week. Mrs. Brewster accompanied
him from the lake.
The steamer Quesnel is the last navi*
f ator of the Fraser for 1912. She arrived here Thursday noon, after having
lightered her cargo up from the Indian
Gardens, which consisted of twenty-
four tons, principally produce and merchandise for the Northern Lumber &
Mercantile Co. The Quesnel will be
placed on the Fort George Trading
Co.'s ways at the foot of Hamilton
street, an agreement having been arrived at in which an exchange is granted the latter company to use the winter
berth of the Quesnel at the town of
Quesnel. This is an agreement that is
highly satisfactory to both parties.
The B. X. representation in South
Fort George this week was a strong
one, and included Manager West, Accountant Bond, Inspector Boyd, and
steamer B.X. Freight Clerk W. J.
Matheson. Mr. Matheson has succeeded to the position of passenger and

the absence of Tommy Chetwynd, who
will spend the winter in the old country.
Mr. Matheson will reside here.
Mr. and Mrs. S. B. Crowell left for
Vancouver Tuesday, travelling by their
own conveyance.
Fire Ranger F, J. Johnson was in
town this week from his pre-emption
on the Willow river near the canyon.
He says there are quite a number of
pre-emptors in that vicinity, and last
week he regaled them with stakes from
a young bear he shot. The meat was
delicious, indeed, it was a welcome
change from other game so plentiful in
the north.
Signs have been erected on the banks
opposite town warning people against
cutting timber and defacing the banks.
It is held that promiscuous cutting of
timber will have the effect of causing
slides which in time may be the means
of serious loss at the proposed railway
bridge crossing. Prosecutions will be
in otder if detection is observed.
Mr. and Mrs. McCrossan left Wednesday morning for Milne's landing, where
Mr. McCrossan takes up his residency.
Mrs. McCrossan will proceed to the
coast and on to her home in New York.
They were passengers in the Northern
