RIGHTS OF
Railway Company Claims North
Boundary of Old Indian Reserve Extends to Middle of
River-Property Affected Was
Bought by Vancouver Firm.
In the negotiations for the settlement of the arrangements for town-
siteing the Indian Reservation here,
as the Grand Trunk Pacific townsite
ol prince George, a matter has arisen which promises some difficulty of
settlement,  regarding   thc  rights of
the   railway    company to     certain
lands lying off the    north shore ot
the Indian reservation. The railway
lays claim to riparian rights which
carry the boundary of the lands they
acquired from   the Indians    to the
middle of the Nechaco river,  which
would include in their boundary the
group of islands known as Lot 1511,
which was   pre-empted in February
190S by Mr.   Russell Peden, of this
place, who     received      a      Crown
grant to it and sold it in 1911 to
Messrs.    Williams and     Murdoff,  of
Vancouver, the well known  real estate operators.  Their claim to this
right is under the provisions of Federal law, claiming that Indian lands
fronting   on   navigable     waterways,
carry riparian rights to the centre
of the stream.
The matter must be  adjusted  between the Grand Trunk Pacific rail-
fay and the federal and provincial
governments   before the Minister of
lands can approve the planp for the
subdivision   of the   property,  which
have been submitted to him (or approval. These plans are already laid
out ui>on tlit,   i;heme of the   land-
M$e archecticts,  Messrs Brett and
Hill, of Boston, and the survey will
follow, according to there plans, as
soon as contractor McPherson, who
will arrive here shortly, has cleared
tne site.
According to interviews granted to
the coast press, the plans of the railway company to put the Prince
Oeorgo townsite on the market about
•he end of the summer, are now con-
tin8ent upon the acceptance of the
Plans at an early date, says Mr.
Morley Donaldson, vice-president of
the company. In the interviews referred to Mr. Donaldson stated that
the townsite was to be named Prince
G«wge, and that, as far as the rail-
»ay company were concerned there
wei-ld be no Port George.
There are many aspects to the
case from both sides. The question
occurs as to the extent of the surrendered rights of the Indians to
their lnn,is after they have surrend-
'rei* them to tho Crown and they
nave reverted to the province for
'"Wafer to the applicants.
The law governing riparian rights
on iwigable rivers would hardly ef-
'«•* Provincial lands on the merits of
the'r former status with the Domin-
10n K°v|!rnnient as federal lands. The
survey in the provincial Lands .Department Khows the Indian reserve to
contain 1366 acres. Beyond the shore
lne and separated by a channel that
°as b«en      navigated there lie the
1(1s which   are the   property ln-
Volve*i in the contention. These have
wdy been alienated from the province by pre-emption.
Just what the terms of the agree-
™ent for the surrender of the Indian
*tos transfers in acreage we are un-
ablc to state at the moment, but it
18 understood that the surveyed acre-
j* was    mentioned.. Plans   in our
es  from the   Indian    Department
Ottawa show the    islands to be
Wuded f,om the boundaries of the
serve. This was   according to the
n'cy made years ago by Surveyor
"overaiix
GOVERNMENT OFFERS
TIMBER FDR SALE
Five Million Feet Killed by Fires
Last Season on the Market-
Value Is Not Greatly
Depreciated.
In the announcement which the
Provincial Forest Branch is making
regarding timber for sale along the
G. T. P. between the Yellowhead
Pass and Fort George, there appears
an item of "5,000,000 feet of timber
killed in 1912."
The government is anxious in the
interest of the country to have the
timber taken out and used before decay and insects get a firm hold. As
is well known, dead timber is not
able to resist either of these enemies
and it is only a matter of time before they get a firm hold. As Ib well
known, dead timber is not able to
resist either of these enemies and it
is only a matter of time befor what
was perfectly healthy wood is filled
with a network of insects' borings and
fungus growths. Damages to the extent of over (5,000,000 annually are
estimated to take place in Eastern
Canada and the United States.
These losses may not be paralleled
in the west, but there is undoubtedly
vast depreciation going on at all
times and this will become more and
more noticeable as time goes on and
timber values increase.
The rate of deterioration ot fire-
killed timber depends a great deal on
the size of the timber and proportion of sapwood. Trees under 3 feet
ln diamater, if killed outright by a
crown fire, are usually unmerchantable in 8 or 10 years; larger trees,
with thin sapwood, may remain merchantable for 15 or 20 years.
Logging fire-killed timber involves
losses in many ways, particulary in
bringing useless parts of the tree to
the mill, and the danger of breaking
when the trees are felled. There are
difficulties in milling, in that the soft
punky outside layer of decayed logs
take up gravel which ls bad for the
saw.
The average result of tests- of
small specimens free from the defects
indicate that the wood ot fire-killed
Douglas fir, after a considerable
number of years, is slightly weaker
than that cut from green timber. The
difference, however, is not great, and
in structural sizes containing the defects ordinarily found in timber, very
largely disappears. In teats which
have been conducted bridge stringers
of fire-killed wood proved to be somewhat less strong than tbe green
stringers with which they were compared; while the floor joists, (both
kinds of wood) were about equal in
strength. In stiffness, the fire-killed
wood was fully equal to the green
wood in all sizes tested.
In general, tests indicate that the
sound wood trom fire-killed Douglas
fir of the Pacific Ooast may safely be
used for general construction purposes and that its merits are nearfy
if not quite equal to those of material from green, growing treeB. It
should be emphasized, however, that
these results apply only to sound
wood. Pieces showing indications ot
decay, whether cut from green or
dead trees, should be rigidly excluded
where strength or durability ls important.
OPENING OF SEASON
SHOWS REALTY ACTIVE
Several Deals in Business Property Denote Busy Building
Season—Outside Interest
is Marked.
FIRE DESTROYS BX CO/S
EARNS AT ASHCROFT
That there will be considerable real
estate activity here during/ the
coming season is the opinion of M.
C. Wiggins, of the firm of Wesley and
Wiggins, the local real estate firm,
who has just returned from a visit
to the coast. Money, Mr. Wiggins
states, is very tight on the coast,
but a large influx may be expected
here owing to the prospects brought
on by immediate railroad construction. For the present state ot the
market, however, it would appear
that property holders are asking exorbitant prices on their properties,
ans as soon as values settle to a
more conservative basis some activity may result which will, in time,
build up values very substantially.
That there will be a large building
activity in South Fort George later
in the spring indicates that the values in this location will be well
maintained. Several business lots
sold this week tor good figures, amongst which may be mentioned the
double corner opposite the Empress
Hotel, bought by Jno. Campbell,
and a lot on Hamilton avenue, also
near the Empress Hotel, by Mr. Bees
a recent arrival from Edmonton.
Mr. Wiggins states that it is the
opinion on the outside that the incorporation movement should be
made as progressive as possible, and
that no time should be lost in rushing the work to completion.

Another railway townsite, on the
Orand Trunk Pacific is now being
laid out on Lot 829. Mr. F. W.
Crawford, local manager of the
transcontinental Townsite Company,
this week despatched Provincial Land
Surveyor F. P. Burden to the new
townsite to commence work on a
contour plan from which a landscape
townsite will be laid out
The site, which will be called
Stewart Biver is two miles west of
the mouth of the Stewart Biver,
about 60 miles from here. The surrounding country is noted for its
agricultural excellence, and the town-
site will probably form tbe gateway
to the great Stewart Lake section.
The site consists of less than a mile
of land. The Transcontinental Town-
site Company, a concern that sells
Grand Trunk Pacific Bailway town-
Bites, through their manager here,
Mr. Crawford, are also making a
contour map of the Willow river

addition to the present area is
.planned to be a residential one, and
it is to be laid out in the most approved manner for that purpose.

George Haas, who started the first
dairy farm in the Fort George district, announces that he will shortly
recommence supplying the town with
fresh milk. During the past winter,
as heretofore, the milk supply of the
town has flown through the holes in
the condensed cream can. We believe
that these days are past, however,
and that It will be no uncommon
sight In the future to see from the
windows of the trains that wUl soon
arrive, Mary, the sweet English
dairy-maid, tripping ecroee
dewy grass to milk the cow.
In the matter of the administration of Justice South Fort George
will shortly be in a peculiar position.
The authority ot Stipendiary Magistrate Heme, who left here on six
months leave of absence, has never
been bestowed upon any substitute
during that gentleman's absence. The
work, of attending to the police
cases which arise has consequently
fallen upon tbe shoulders ot Justices
ot the Peace Perkins of Fort George
and A. K. Bourchier, of this town.
It has been found urgently necessary
to make recommendations for more
Justices of the Peace here, to the
government, as the rapidly increasing work of the officers now here
could not properly be handled by the
present number.
The recommendations have not yet
been 'acted upon, and ln consideration of this fact Mr. A. K. Bourchier this week tendered his resignation
as a peace officer to Provincial Secretary Young, by wire.
With the magistrate who should
condemn the desperate characters
who threaten the peace and serenity
of this section with violent acts, to
durance vile, sodjourning upon the
limpid waters of the Mediterranean,
whilst the peace officers resign, and
those recommended are not commissioned, the outlook for thugs and
strong-arm men is rosy.
Mr. Bourchier, as a Justice of the
Peace, has proved to be a most capable and painstaking officer. This
can not be said of many of the Justices upon whom the work of administering the criminal laws is often
Incumbent ln remote places. It reflects upon the sysyem of the department of justice, that things should
be allowed to drift into tbe state
Which now marks tne efforts of the
police court here.
the
A. G. HAMILTON RETURNS
FROM SUNNY SOUTH
After some months holiday in the
sunny south Mr, A. G. Hamilton returned here for the summer, arriving
on the last stage. Mr. Hamilton is
as hale and hearty as of yore. He
walks with the step of a young man
and only the night-watchmen see the
dawn each morn before him. Mr.
Hamilton has spent the winter journeying through southern California
and Old Mexico. He was in Mexico,
en route for the City, when he waa
warned to return by fellow countrymen, who knew of tbe dangers which
beset strangers arriving in the Mexican cities during such periods ot
dago rough-housing as that which
recently terminated in the murder of
Madero.
Mr. Hamilton spent some time ln
Vancouver. Asked regarding the opinion of the people on the outside, interested in tbis town, with respect
to the movement for Incorporation,
Mr. Hamilton stated that there was
a general sentiment strongly ln favor
of it. There need be no fear of the
government refusing the application,
said Mr. Hamilton, who has ascertained the feelings of the ministers upon thc subject.
There are twelve passengers on tht
in-bound stage due here tonight. Tht
last stage brought in fourteen. Tht
British Columbia  Express  Company
is taxed to the limit to bandit the
passenger traffic. Dixie Moore, traffic
superintendent of the company, who
was here on a brief visit thlt week,
states that the company's motor can
are now running as far as tht Seventy Mile House on the Cariboo Road.
Manager Willis J. West was en routt
to this place with Mr. Moore, when
he received news, at Quesnel, ot tht
total destruction   of the company's
huge barn in Ashcroft.    No details
were received, but it is understood
that the horse barns   and the feed
stores were totally demolished. Two
stage horses were burned to death.
The Steamboat   B. X. ls already
practically   prepared    to takt    tht
water. This boat will be launched as
soon as possible and will bring up a
full load from Soda Oreek. Captain
Busey, of the B. X., left Quesnel thlt
week with Manager West, bound tor
Tete   Jaune   by way oi Edmonton.
Captain Butey will   come down tht
Fraser in a canoe at the first optn
water, in order that he may get a
more thorough knowledge of tht location of the dangerous obstructions
to navigation.
Mr. Moore states that tha steel ts
now laid to a point SO miles below
Mile 53, or Tete Jaune, on which tht
freight can be hauled. The British
Columbia Express Company are endeavoring to make arrangements to
have the first freight landed as tar
down tho steel as possible, as by
so doinn a big stretch of the shallow
river near the headwaters may be
avoided.
The express matter whieh has accumulated at Quesnel tor some weeks
past, owing to the congested traffic,
Is now being forwarded here on ti-
tra stages.
The company experiences a gnat
deal of trouble in securing the Mr-
vices of competent ttage drivers now,
Mr. Moore said. There are many
two horse drivers to be had, he explained, but drivers for four-horss
stages are now hard to get.
The Federal government is now
calling for tenders for the construction of the Indian viUage to be built
on Reserve No. 2, at the Goose
Oountry.
ACCIDENT ON C.N.R.
A bad accident in the construction
camp on the O. N. R. acrosB the Athabasca river trom Pocahontas, consisting ot a premature explosion ot
dynamite and black powder, may
have fatal results. The accident occurred in the camp ot Phelan and
Shirley.
In some unknown manner a heavy
charge ot the explosives was set off
prematurely and hurled six men into
the air. Berger Sundberg, son of Alfred Sundberg, ot Sundberg Bros., is
probably fatally Injured and five
others are badly hurt.
Or. Snyder, physician of Jaspar
Park Collieries at Pocahontas, and
Mr. Thomas his assistant, rushed to
the scene of the accident and dressed
tbe wounds. Mr. Sundberg suffered
a compound fracture ot tbe left arm,
his rii.lit cheek btonc ls shattered, his
left leg broken at the knee, his face
and bead badly cut and the sight of
both eyes probably destroyed. He
was taken to Edmonton Immediately.
JASPER PARK TO BE
NATIONA^PUTGROOMD
Lieut.-Col. Samuel Maynard Rogers,
veteran of the Reil rebellion and of tha
South African war, and until recently
commanding the Eighth infantry brigade at Ottawa, has been appointed
superintendent of Jacper National
Park on the line of the Grand Trunk
Pacific railway, east of here. It is tha
intention of the Dominion Government
to give Col. Rogers a free hand in
making this great park the playgro nd
of Canada, and he has r scheme outlined which will practically rev jlutionite
thi* develuj ment of parki in this country.
Lieut.-Col. Rogers is an Englishman
by birth, having first seen the light of
day at Plymouth. He came to Canada
as a child and was educated at the Ottawa Public schools and collegiate
institute.
With the opening of navigation oa
May 1st. will come the hordes from
up-river. Reports indicate that the
first boats will be crowded with men
from the camps.
Freighting on the river above here
is practically at an end. The point ot
ice just at the mouth of the Nechaco
becomes narrower and more dangerous every day and it Is safe to
say it tbe weather keeps as soft as
lt ls, that three or four more days
will see the finish of heavy travel on
the river.

J. B". Daniell, President.
Devoted to the Interests of the Fort George Distiict and the Northern
Interior of British Columbia.
MKriftiM $3.00 a Yiir it Adiaict
Advertisini Riles on Application
N
OT many years ago, when the projection of the Grand Trunk
Pacific Railway through the northern interior of the province
firat became known, far-seeing men who realized the fact that the
northern wilderness was upon the threshold of a wonderful future,
profited from their knowledge by various means, having their
basic principle in the discounting of the brilliant future aforesaid.
The great region bordering upon the located line of the transcontinental railway is now fostering industries great and small on
every hand. The stagnant country of a few years ago, with the
advent of cheap transportation, becomes the Mecca of the thousands, and in the zone of the railway activity the resources of the
vast, fertile wilderness become marketable assets of the province.
The Peace River country, of which so much is heard and so
little known, lies to the north of the Grand Trunk Pacific railway
belt. It is in exactly the same stagnant state as that which preceded the advent of the G. T. P. in this district. It is a vast, unpopulated, unknown area, awaiting the shriek of the locomotive
to waken it from its slumber.
With the march of events in this province, however, and the
experience gained by the precedents already established, the
government should take more progressive measures for the assistance of development than those which have marked the opening
up of the northern interior Ly the intrepid pioneers who laid the
foundations of prosperity in this section.
We have always maintained that in the Peace river section, on
the British Columbia side of the border, there is presented a wonderful opportunity for the province to initiate a policv of land
settlement more in keeping with the times than that which has
distinguished the populating of the northern interior. Great
colonization concerns have already purchased large areas of land
from the government behind the big reserves for pre-emption
which border the Peace river itself. The ceuntry is ready for
pioneer settlers, but the fact remains that the province of British
Columbia can point to no way of entry other than a rabbit trail.
Thirty miles above here on the Fraser river lies Giscombe
Portage. At this point a ridge of land only twelve miles in extent
gives upon the headwaters of a system of rivers and lakes' which
flow into the Arctic ocean. Some of these rivers tnd lakes are
navigable, and others are not. We maintain that the government
should either exercise its influence with the federal powers and
have the water lanes into the British Columbia Peace river made
navigable, or they should, by the most feasible route, connect a
wagon road to the head of the navigable system giving entry to
the Peace.
THE fact that the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway company is
applying to register the name of "Prince George" is causing
the promoters and their hangers-on a good deal of uneasiness.
Over in the legal registered townsite of Fort George the "decoy"
weekly of Promoter Hammond (George J. Hammond owns debentures taken as security on the money he advanced for the installation of the plant) is bewailing the fact of the Prince George
name and is striving valiantly to reassure the lot-holders in the
huge townsites that Fort George is still the big thing they have
always claimed.
To the independent interests here, and the people of South
Fort George, the change of name for the G. T. P. townsite is hailed with large satisfaction. It would indeed be a faux pas for the
Grand Trunk Pacific Railway company to "fall" for the carefully
laid plans of the townsiters whose operations in this section have
caused the railway concern no little annoyance, and whose operations in the real estate market have been marked by controversy,
litigation and exposures.
Tht house organ of the promoters, "the only paper published
in Fort George," as the organ states in its sub-heading, (and the
only one likely to be published there in the next twenty years)
gravely hints that the government of this province should have
good and sufficient reason for allowing the change of name before
such change could be made. We could supply a list of reasons to
the government so voluminous and convincing that there could be
no counter argument save, perhaps, the fact that George John
Hammond is a heavy contributor to that mysterious accumulation,
the provincial campaign fund. Ihis information was elicited by
Th« Herald's lawyer whilst Hammond was on the witness stand
at Kamloops trying to prove that he was not the crook we
claimed him to be.
In South Fort George, the real town, the people would have
applied the'name, South Prince George, to the municipal city
which is now being created. Here we realize and admit that the
Prince George townsite will be the centre of the Fort George district, and in the flotation of the splendidly laid out site on the old
Indian reservation the public here sees nothing but benefit to.the
values of property in this site.
The people should not allow themselves to be misled or influenced by the expressions of opinion which emanate from sources
that spread such reports for the purpose of individual interests.

Of the townsite promoter?
The awful flood, tornado and fire disasters of the past few day9
in the United States will evoke universal sympathy for the victims
tnd those dependent upon them, The loss of life and destruction
of property is even greater than that occasioned by the San Francisco 'quake of a few years ago.

Kw^mmWtWA&miKmwM'A THE PEACE RIVER COUNTRY
Report of Exploration Surveys in the Peace,
Parsnip and Findlay River Valleys.
By A. W. HARVEY..
(Conch-did from last week.)
On the eastern side of the valley
the land consists of a low flat about
a mlle m width, heavily timbered, a
bench ahout 150 feet in height
[rom one to two miles wide, and a
higher bench 300 to 350 feet above the
river| extending to the foot of the
Rocky Mountains, with a width of
from two to three miles. Both those
are lightly timbered with pine and
poplar; the soil is generally good
9ttn,ly loam, and light clay loam in
places.
A great part of the country has
heen burnt. As far as Fort Graham,
*, distance of about 65 miles from the
mouth, the river has a fall ot about
31 feet to the mile; but above this
point thc current.is much swifter,
and for the next 35 miles, to Deserter's Canyon there is a fall of between
4j to 5 feet to the mile.
For nearly thirty miles above Fort
Grahame the river is very wide and
the islands   very numerous; it then
narrows for about 5 miles. It is confined   to one    channel, until above
Deserter's Canyon  it   widens  again.
I went no farther up the river than
this canyon, as I reached this point
in extreme high    water, and I was
unable to get through with my canoes. I ascended a mountain at this
point, on   the eastern    side of the
valley, and obtained a fine view of
the surrounding country.  The river-
valley at this    point is about four
miles and a half in width, and extends in the same general direction
(N. 30deg. W.) for about    60 to 70
milcs farther, the land appearing to
have the same characteristics as already described.
Just above the canyon on the west
side of the Findlay,  and separated
Irom the main    range by a narrow
valley, a precipitous, bare mountain
ol white    limestone   rises   sharply.
This mountain has a height of about
1,500 feet above the flat, and is visible for a long way down the river.
The river    at  the    Canyon  is  only
about 100 feet   in width,   ani cuts
through an exceedingly hard conglomerate rock. At low water this canyon is easily navigated by canoes.
The Rocky Mountains on the east
side of the   Finlay   are    composed
having a fall of about 9 feet to the
mile.
The Omineca River, the largest
tributary of the Findlay, which fbws
into it from the west, about H miles
from the mouth, cuts through a
rocky ridge of gneiss and miaa-
schist about 7 miles in a straight
line from its junction with the Findlay. The Black Canyon, which has
been made by the river, cutting
through thiB ridge, is about one
mile in length and is only navigable
for canoes at low ,water.
Between this canyon and the Findlay the river is very swift and has
spread over a large area, having,
with the bars and small islands on
each side, an average width of about
three-quarters of a mile, and a fall
of about 8 feet tb the mile.
On the south side the country is
level and the soil good, but to the
north the hills rise sharply from the
river, and there is very little land of
any value. Above the canyon the
valley is about two to two and a
half miles in width, similar in character to that of the Findlay, but
more broken and rougher, the soil
being light sandy and clay loams,
and the timber a light growth of
spruce, pine and poplar.
Returning then to the mouth of the
Findlay, I next descended the Peace
River about 80 miles to the Rocky
Mountain Canyon. After, flowing
northward about eight miles through
what is practically the valley of the
Findlay, the Peace River bends to
the east and cuts through the main
line range of the Rocky Mountains,
through which it runs in a narrow
valley for about.40 miles, there being
practically no land* tn this part of
the river of any value. After leaving
the Rockies the valley widens gradually, and small flats covered with a
light growth of poplar and pine occur along the the river.
The mountains, bounding the valley, decrease rapidly in height, and
the slopes are often open and grass
covered. On entering the canyon, the
river, which has been following an
easterly course, bends sharply to the
south, leaving the main valley, which
continues on in the same direction,
with a width of   about two miles,

chiefly of sandstone and gneiss, the
•fountains on the west being chiefly
Mca-sehlst, with gneiss and limestone. On my way down the Finlay
1 ascended, for a short distance, the
InBenika, Aspica, and Omineca Riv-
erB, the principal tributaries. The
flr*-t of these, the Ingenlka, enters
the Pil*lay from the west, about 2o
miles ubove Port Graham. The low
"Rts along the river are good, but
limited in extent, averaging from 41
to M chains in width for the last
tffenty miles, of its course, the .soil

Miches, rising sharply from the
I'ottotn to a height of 150 feet, are
(lr-' and sandy and covered with

b«t free from canyons, with a fall
°f about 8 feet to the mile, and is
arable for canoes, except at high
water, for about 3fj mUflg_

and returning to it at Hudson's
Hope, about 12 miles from the head
of the canyon. I should estimate that
j between the point where it enters
' the Rocky Mountains and the canyon there is not more than 25,000
acres or agricultural land on the
Peace River, and nearly one-half ol
this is covered by coal licences. The
coal licences on the Carbon River,
which enters the Peace about 30 miles
above the canyon, are situated in
very, rough mountainous country,
quite unfit for agriculture. I estimate
that the Findlay Valley, with its
tributaries, between the mouth and
Deserter s Canyon, contains about
350,000 acres of good land.
The Peace River, between the
mouth of the Findlay and the Rocky
Mountain Canyon, ls navigable for
steamboats for the entire length at
every stage of water, the only obstacles being the Findlay and the
Ne Parle Pas Rapids. The former
could be greatly improved by removing the rocks which obstruct the
stream, and the latter presents but
little difficulty to navigation. The
Findlay, though shallow In places at
low water, is nav gable for probably
150 miles.

FORT FRASER, Central British Columbia, has the ideal
townsite location on the entire line of the Grand Trunk
Pacific Railway in British Columbia.      :      :      :       :
It has also many natural resources and advantages not possessed by other townsites.
It has a sparkling lake of fifty square miles of fresh water. Tremendous hydro-electric
power being developed at its very door. The largest tract of agricultural land to be found
in British Columbia. A healthful and ideal climate both summer and winter. One thousand
miles of navigable waters reach to and from Fort Fraser,
These Are Advantages Which Cannot be Taken Away
Again, it is a natural distributing centre for a vast territory, and with the incoming of the
Grand Trunk Pacific, Pacific & Hudson Bay Railway and other contemplated lines, its future
as one of the coming cities of Western Canada is assured.
FORT   FRASER
is already a good lively town with Government office, telegraph office, postoffice and various
lines of trade already established there.
Lots can be obtained at from $200.00 upwards with cash deposit of 10 per cent, cash, and
5 per cent, monthly without interest or taxes.

province will produce. The only small
gardens seen were at Fort Graham
on the Findlay, and Fort McLeod,
at McLeod Lake. At Fort Graham
good potatoes, turnips, beets, cabbages, and rhubarb have been grown,
as well as raspberries, gooseberries,
and strawberries; the same vegetables have been raised at McLeod.
The snowfall in the Parsnip and
Findlay varies trom 2 to 6 feet. On
the Peace River there is a heavy
snowfall in the Rocky Mountains,
which rapidly decreases toward the
east. At the Peace River 'Canyon
horses can frequently be wintered In
the open Without feeding hay. The
climate is similar to that of the Nechaco and Upper Fraser Valleys.
During the months of June, July
and August, the lowest temperature
experienced was 61 degrees and the
highest 79 degrees. The rainfall ls
light, being probably, in the neighborhood of 40 inches. Heavy thunderstorms are of frequent occurrence.
Game is not' plentiful. Bear are
fairly numerous; moose, deer, and
caribou are found, but not in any
numbers. Mountain sheep and goats
are fairly numerous in tbe Rockies.
Fish are abundant in the Peace and
the Parsnip, chiefly grayling and
Dolly Varden trout. There are but
few fish in the Findlay. The pack,
Crooked, and Long Rivers abound in
rainbow trout,
I returned from the Peace River
Canyon to McLeod by the Peace, Parsnip rivers: thence to West Giscombe
by McLeod Lake and the Crooked
River; thence by steamboat to Soda
Creek.; from there by road to Ashcroft. I consider that the country*
through which I travelled has every
prospect of a great future. Coal is
very abundant, and good prospects
of copper, gold, silver and mica
have been found in the Rocky Mountains and the ranges to the west of
the Findlay and Parsnip rivers; and
in the valleys of the Parsnip, Peace,
and Findlay there nre about 800,000
acres of land suitable for dairy and
truck farming.

WILLOW RIVER
BRITISH COLUMBIA
At the confluence of the Fraser, Salmon and Willow Rivers.
The first town of importance to be established in Central
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 thii 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, 1912, a number of 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.
Clear and perfect title direct from the Grand Trunk Pacific
Railway. The Original and Official Townsite of Willow River
is located oh Lot 785; Station Site approved by the Board of
Railway Commissioners March 26th, 1912, Order No. 16179.

Prospectors Spend Ten Months in
Untrodden Wilds of North-
Eastern B. C.-Bands of
Wild Horses Met.
Bronzed and weather beaten from
l0Ilg months of back-packing in the
ffild interior of Britich Columbia,
Jim Bradley and Gus Riemland, two
•••ell-known western prospectors, ar-
rlvetl in the city with their pack
train of five horses, says the Edmonton Journal.
Mr. Bradley, tall, slim, dressed in
wide hat of black and miner's shirt
was busy exchanging reminiscences
With bis old time partner, George
Daa-ly, now proprietor of the King
Edward, when the Edmonton reporter overtook him. Like most men of
the woods Mr. Bradley was slow to
talk, and spoke of his long trip
merely as an every day occurrence.
Leaving Tete Jaune Cache in June
last, Bradley and Riemland started
with a pack train and from Mile 125
went up along the Little Smoky river
making temporary camps as they
went along and prospecting every
inch of the country.
In the ten months that followed
tbe two men covered about two thousand miles of the interior in their
search (or the precious yellow metal,
but without success, but in the region of the Big Smoky river at its
headwaters and country tributary to
tbat they discovered rich galena and
copper ore. Samples of this they
brought back, with them, and if quantities to any great amount are there
as Mr. Bradley claims, mines of fab-
ulods wealth may be located. The
two men will have a conference with
a mining man from Montana who is
in the city at present and represents
large financial concerns and deals in
mining properties.
"We had no particular hardships on
bur trip," said Mr. Bradley, "that
is nothing out of   the usual  which
men travelling in   wild country are
lotted to endure, but we never saw
a white man and very few Indians,
after we left the country along the
Grand Trunk."
Probably the most Interesting part
ol Mr. Bradley's story of his trip is
ol the great bands of wild horses
that roam the country they travelled
through. These animals have been
the subject of much discussion and
argument among people of this western country, hut Mr. Bradley, fresh
from their haunts, is in a position
to vouch for their numbers and their
existence.
"Without a word of a lie, there
must be easily three thousand of
these these animals roaming in little
owds through the country which we
Passed through. The Indians and
white proBpectore and pack train
men va'ue these horses more than
an animal of the best breeding,"
said Mr. Bradley.
"They are the descendants of
horses that were turned loose by
disgusted or dyiAg men at the- time
°t the famous Cariboo rush. At that
time thousands of tenderfeet stamp-
e(i<-'l to the Cariboo and ljke in all
e°*d rushes a great many of them
wee utterly incompetent to get
along in that wild country. Many of
their horses got away or were turn-
<•<• loose by them, and for many years
th(-s*. animals made their feeding
founds near Barkerville. As the
years went on the bands increased
In numbers, and the descendents of
these early animals are to be found
through all the mountain country of
Northern B. C. They make trails in
the mountains much after the fash-
1UI* of deer and the buffalo, and also
ln the timber country. In the timber
country the Indians and packers Bet
marcs for them just the same as a
'vnx is caught. The horses, in most
cases arc easily broken in. We lost
nnimals from   our pack train from
•mo to time and were able to capture animals to replace them. And in
act the  wild horses ore better for
™ class of country on account of
felr hardiness and sureness of foot
0,1 mountain trails."

MANY ATTRACTED TO
NEW CAMP NEAR ATUN
AdviceB from the new gold diggings
at Silver Creek, near Atlin, sb,ate
that there have been a few arrivals
there for a week previous to the
sending of the despatch. Most of
them have come in from the north
but a few arc Vancouver and Seattle
men. Prom Vancouver two prospectors, Wood and Dean have arrived,
and a man named Bucbe, a partner
of Seattle prospectors already in,
has also arrived, states the despatch.
At a fraction of Claim 30 above
the discovery on Silver Creek the
owners have sunk a shaft fourteen
feet but have been stopped by water.
They are now sinking on the first
south fork of Silver creek and expect
tangible results shortly from the nature of the gravel deposits. All here
speak confidently of future development work.
Smith and Geddes, traders from
the Pelly district are sinking holes.
They ex"ect to erect a Btore at Tes-
lin and have two steamers on the
route from White Horse to Teslin
district. They state that the cost of
freighting supplies between these two
points will be four and a half cents
per pound and thence by pack train
from Teslin to Silver Creek eight
cents per pound.
Pete Gabriel, formerly a blacksmith at Atlin, is bringing in
a small sawmill. Messrs McLean,
Miller, Copeland and Forbes, from
Pelly district, who have been prospecting there for several years, have
staked a number of claims here and
will spend the summer In the district.
There are several hand sleighs
taking easy stages from Atlin,
taking ten days to make the trip,
and these carry 250 lbs each.
Messrs. Fuller and McCulloch are
sinking holes on Johnson Creek and
its tributaries, but have not reached
bedrock to date.
There has been some severe cold
weather during the last week, and
the thermometer has been 80 below
zero. With this temperature the work
of thawing out the ground ls slow.
All the trails are in excellent condition, and there is aaid to be sixty
men now on the way In from Atlin.
dependent office of Auditor general.
Rumor has it that upon Mr. Goe-
pel's successor will be Mr. W. Upton
Runnalls, who will combine the inspectorates of government offices end
trust companies hereafter. Alfred
Hood, chief clerk in the public works
department, is expected to be the
new provincial auditor, William
Scott being .promoted to fill the
chief clerkship. Government Agent
Chlpman of Slocan also retires on
April 1, being succeeded by his assistant, Stenson. A number of other
civil service changes are also on tbe
tapis and will probably eventuate at
the close of the fiscal year.

ARE SUPERANNUATED
It is currently reported at "James
Bay in Victoria that Deputy Finance
Minister J: McB. Smith and Auditor
General J. A. Anderson will retire
upon superannuation from the provincial service, with which they
have been identified respectively since
1897 and 1886, at the close ot this
month, their successors being W. J.

EXPRESS CHARGES
Twenty cents a pound looks a lot, doesn't it? Yet to haul
every pound of express matter from Ashcroft to Fort George
we have to use 76 horses, employ 5 experienced stage-drivers
and hire 20 good hostlers. Not much left of 20 cents after
feeding and stabling horses and paying the men's board and
wages, is there? Wages and feed have advanced 25 per cenl
in Cariboo these last few years. Our chargej have remained
stationary. Besides, the Railway Commissioners aliuw Express companies to charge three times freight rate. We
charge lets than double while our service is three times as
quick. Could you, or would you, give the public as square a
deal as we are trying to do?
