Samuel A. McCoy, general superintendent of thc Simms & Carey Construction Company, arrived here
this week from up-river, accompanied
by R. M. Symington and other contractors. The representative of Captain Rogers, of the Rogers Construction Company, formerly the
Lund Rogers Construction Co., was
another visitor from up river, He is
straightening out the affairs of the

The act brought down recently by
the attorney-general to amend the
Liquor Licence Act possesses several
features of interest. The most important change of nil is that which
relates to Sunday closing and prohibitive hours. Under the old act
saloons and bars had to be closed up
at 11 o'clock on Saturday evenings
and were not allowed to open again
until Monday morning at five. Under the new act the regulations are
even moro stringent. All places where
liquor is vended are to be closed at
ten o'clock on Saturday nights and
are not allowed to open again until
seven o'clock on Monday morning.
Also thc daily prohibitive hours
are extended. Whereas under the old
act saloons and bars were required
to close their doors at Midnight on
each week day except Saturday, under the new order of things they are
required to close at eleven o'clock
and cannot open again until seven
o'clock in the morning. The penalty
for a breach of the law in this regard is very heavy—for the first offence a penaltv   of  not   more than ' • = *

Another addition is made under
the new act to the various classes
of persons—dipsomaniacs, Indians,
vagrants, chauffeurs, etc.—to whom
the sale of liquor is forbidden. The
following clause is added: "also persons apparently under the influence
of liquor."

CORRESPONDENCE

the day of termination the | ,
Editor: Fort George Herald,
Dear Sir:—My attention has just
been drawn to the article on the
front page of The Herald of January
18th. under the heading "Edmonton
Will not Awake to Her Opportunities. Wholesalers and Business Men
of Alberta Capital Evidently Care
Nothing for trade Control of District at their Doors.
I wish to state that your article
appears to have been written under
a total   misapprehension   as to the
situation, and affords a   wholly erroneous Impression as to the attitude of Edmonton wholesalers In regard to trade with Fort George. I
am in a position to know that many
Edmonton houses   have been keenly
alive to the value of that trade, and
have been closely   watching the development of transportation facilities which would render it possible to
handle the business from Edmonton.
More than a year ago, the Edmonton Board of Trade brought strong
pressure to bear on the Grand Trunk
Pacific Railway to obtain assurance
that shipments would be carried over
the newly laid rails of that company
when steel reached the Fraser River,
in order to permit Edmonton houses
to handle Fort   George business in
1912.   Edmonton   shippers    were so
much in earnest in this that a group
of wholesalers had arranged to provide storage at Tete Jaune, send a
man there   to look after shipments
and  relieve tho   railway of all  responsibility for the     safe arrival  of

Chairman, W. W. Foster, deputy minister of public works, introduced J.
A. Fraser, M. P. P. for this district.
Rererring to R. Rutherford's paper
on     "Winter    Roads,"    Mr. Fraser
pointed to the fact tbatlthe Pacific
Great Eastern railway  na3 just recently changed its   course so as to
win almost parallel   with the main
Cariboo road, which would mean that
this road would have an amount of
traffic passing over it which it had
never experienced ln its history. In
consequence of this, the standardizing of track-widths and wagon tyres

Grand Trunk Pacific Railway, about
seventy miles to the wostward of
Tete Jaune Cache, a distance of
about seventy-two miles. A wagon
road already exists for fourteen out
of the nineteen miles between Barkerville and Bear Lake, and an old
paok trail extends down the Goat
river. On this line the BUmmit is
comparatively low, only 3710 feet
above sea level.

THE NEW TRADE ROUTE.
When The Herald published an article decrying the inactivity
of Edmonton interests with respect to the establishment of trade
relations with this district it certainly started something. We
have already dwelt at some length in these columns upon the subject, b it we are yet receiving communications from individuals
and organizations in Alberta's capital voicing protest against the
views we expressed. Whilst the article referred to may have
appeared rather acrimonious, The Herald is pleased to note that
it had, and is having, the precise effect calculated by the writer—
the stirring up in Edmonton of an organized effort to obtain the
trade of this section, to our mutual advantage, and the proper
announcement of these efforts here amongst those interested.
We received this week a communication from the president of
the Edmonton Board of Trade. This communication sets forth at
hngth the past action of Edmonton wholesalers taken to promote
the anticipated commercial relations of Edmonton and this section
of the northern interior of British Columbia. There is nothing
new conveyed to us in the communication referred to. The Edmonton Board of Trade have recorded events of which we have
been fully cognizant. Events barren of result and poorly conceived, to our way of thinking. They contented themselves with
endeavoring to secure shipment of Edmonton goods over the incompleted line of the Grand Trunk Pacific railway to the head of
navigation in 1912. This arrangement did not materialize because
circumstances made it an impossible proposition. We will hasten
past any reference to the representations made to Edmonton by
an agent of a notorious townsite concern, masquerading as a representative of a public body, which, at no time, has represented
the main business element of this section. Such incidents have
not helped in the past to clear the atmosphere.
On December 12th last, the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway company issued, at Winnipeg, a special freight tariff on general merchandise between Edmonton, Alta,, and Grand Trunk Pacific
railway stations ending at Tete Jaune, the head of navigation on
the Praser river, The rates on the different classes of merchandise follow:
Botween
Classes—Cents per 100 pounds

115 |  96 I   76 I   53 I   62 |   44 |   32 1  44 1   44 1  26
Regarding the classification, which requires reference to the
tariff information, an idea may be gained regarding this from the
statement that mixed groceries in carload lots travel as fifth-class
freight for 52 cents a hundred. Tiie G, T. P. are erecting freight
sheds for storage and forwarding at the head of navigation. The
steamboats will carry freight from these freight sheds to this
place for a rate of 3 cents per pound, or a fraction under that
rate, There will be running between these points during the
coming season the steamers Chilcotin, B. C. Express and Quesnel,
the two former capable of carrying 100 tons and the latter 50
tons. These boats will average about seven days for the round
trip, or roughly will be able to handle, in favorable stages of
water, about 250 tons a week. Added to this fleet are other
smaller boats, and Mr. J. W. Stewart informed The Herald here
last week that his big sternwheelers, the Operator and Conveyor,
would handle all the freight they could obtain to this point.
This information is of interest to people here. We are obtaining such information as we may. The Edmonton Board of Trade
and the Edmonton business men who have been on the track of
our business have hitherto confined themselves to a rather futile
effort to fashion a trade route into these parts for their own ends
(Continued on Page 5.)
Responsible business men in the West are awakening to the
dangers which beset their communities through the real estate
sharp. At a recent annual meeting of the Edmonton Board of
Trade, the retiring president, Mr. H. Milton Martin, devoted a
considerable portion of his address to this phase of the situation.
He pointed out that those who had, and who are still giving the
West a black eye through their subdivision schemes, are men of
no reputation in the centres they claim to represent. The foreign
dealer in Canadian lands is the curse of the country, and every
time they "put one over," thriving centres, such as Edmonton,
suffer. Mr. Martin, together with many other Westerners, favors
legislation of the "blue sky" order; he would, for one thing,
make it necessary to have a subdivision improved to the extent at
least of having streets graded and good roadways built to it before it could be put on the market.
Such legislation would unquestionably go a long way toward
clearing the atmosphere, but unless it was made retroactive, the
choice selection of subdivision "skin games" that are now on the
market, both in this country and in Europe, would not be called
upon to halt iu their criminal career. The courts of the country
appear to se the only method of bringing these subdivides to
their senses, and at the same time give back to the foolish ones,
by process of law, the money they parted with at the call of the
land liar, There are now several cases of this character in the
courts, both in Ontario and Quebec,, and no doubt many more will
follow when the owners of this outside subdivision stuff awake to
th; fact that their money has gone into the pockets of the land
agent without even the shadow of a chance of an equitable return.
If some two years ago the western provinces had initiated, some
"blue sky" legislation, they would not today be suffering from
the sins of these fakirs, and the public in general would have
saved a vast sum of money, which would have gone into legitimate investment in Canadian lands and Canadian investments.-

I FORT FRASER, B. C.
i THE  TOWN   THAT   OFFERS   OPPORTUNITIES I 1
OPPORTUNITIES for investment and money-making. OPPORTUNITIES for opening in
business where you are sure to succeed. OPPORTUNITIES for establishing yourself in the
finest agricultural district in British Columbia. OPPORTUNITIES to regain lost health.
OPPORTUNITIES of obtaining wealth from any of the above within the next few years,
WHY!
BECAUSE!
Read below extracts of letter written by Mr. E. A. Mitchell of the Fort Fraser Drug Co. to
a particular Vancouver friend of his:
Dear Dan,-I like this place better every day and
you couldn't pull me out. of it. The rheumatism
has completely left me and I never felt better in
my life and can eat like a horse.   *
I never saw better potatoes than I have seen
grown here, and the largest carrots 1 have ever had
the pleasure of seeing were grown here. The nice
flavor of the vegetables and roots here was one of
the first things which I noticed. A Mr. McDonald
here grew over 100,000 pounds of potatoes this
summer. I saw some No. 1 oats and wheat which
was grown here, and the wheat was even a better
variety than the oats.
There is plenty of the finest land surrounding
Fort Fraser, and the location of the townsite and
view from it is perfect. The appearance of the
country generally, from a scenic point of view cannot be improved upon.
At present there is on the townsite a sawmill, a
branch of the Bank of Vancouver, hotel almost
completed and will be open very soon, Government
building which is a credit to the town, the Fort
Fraser Investment Company, Dominion Stock &
Bond Corporation agent and oflice and his residence, a drug store, postoflice shortly, and a great
number of larger or smaller houses.
The best openings at present are for a butcher,
cabinetmaker to make furniture and run a furniture store, livery, restaurant, bakeshop, general
stores and clothing store. In the spring there
should be good openings for another grocery, hardware, poolroom, barber shop, jewellery, another
sawmill, boarding house and rooms, tailor, dressmaker and probably several other lines.
Taking conditions all around I am more pleased
every day that I came in here when I did. This is
going to be a good town, and the man who gets in
here first is going to do well. Hang onto what
property you have here, Dan, and my tidvice to you
is to get more of it. It is bound to come, and all I
can say is that Fort Fraser is good enough for me.

A MAN WHO LOVE9 THE
WILDERNKSS
Henry McAllister, a native of what
is now the province of Manitoba,
born in St. Andrew's par. .1 on October 15th., 1847, who is declared to
be the oldest white settler north oi
the Peace River, has come to Edmonton for supplies, says an Edmonton
despatch. This is his.-first visit to a
city. Everything is new to him.
"Modern as Kdmonton is in all
things," he said, "I would rather be
back on the homestead in the Burnt
River district, where I have passed
the last 23 years. Mrs. McAllister is
a sister of the Rt. Rev. J. 0. Brick,
a missionary of thc Anglican church
in the Peace. I have learned to love
the wilderness as a mother does her
first-born. I have lived there most of
my life. I belong there.

CORRESPONDENCE
Continued from p. t*
business people were still anxious to
Ut through to look over the sit
nation with a wiew to further bust-
ess Partly as a result of reprcsent-
rtiL'maJc on behaU of the Fort
OeoiTC Board of Trade by Mr. F. P *
Dewar it was decided to sent a party
through to Kort (leorge, at the time
o[ the second annual Edmon business
men's trip in July last. A party of
about twelve were prepared to leave
the main party at Fitzhugh and go
through to Fort George.
The Grand Trunk Pacific could give
no assurance of rail transportation,
but the party was prepared to take
chances on flat cars and construction
trains, and to walk the last few
miles, which probably would haye
been necessary. But again, notwithstanding Mr. Dewar's urgent invitation, and assurances that if there
was no regular service a special boat
to the Canyon could be arranged, the
party were prepared to take chances,
after getting to Tete Jaune, of finding some means of getting down to
thc Canyon; there was no use going
that far in the face of great uncertainty as to means of transportation
below the Canyon.
Not to make this communication
of inordinate length, I will quote
two telegrams exchanged at this time
between Fort George and Mr. F. T.
Fisher, Secretary of the Edmonton
Board of Trade:—
Edmonton,  July 15th., 1912.
B. C. Express Company
Fort George.
Is your boat running to Canyon
and what schedule'' Party Edmonton
business men will arrive Fitzhugh
night twenty seventh. Eight or ten
anxious to go through to Fort
George. See Dewar.
"F. T. Fisher."
Fisher.
Board of Trade.  Edmonton.
Wire to B. C. ExDress received.
Boat not running on regular schedule to Canyon. Tf you can come down
to canyon on Foley Welch boat, in
all probability B. X. or Chilcotin
can meet party and bring to Fort
George, depend on Btage of water,
wire probable arrival canyon.
"F, N. Dewar."
Many other communications had
Previously been exchanged; but the
above will indicate clearly, I think,
that Edmonton shippers were anxious
to go through to Fort George, and
that their failure to do so was not
through lack of Interest.
I do not know what wholesalers
Mr. A. K. Bourchier interviewed in
Edmonton; but I do know that he
did not approach the officials of the
Board of Trade or the Edmonton
Jobbers' Association. 1 can further
say that the largest hardware house
in Kdmonton has had a representative in Fort George territory for
some months regularly soliciting
business and inviting correspondence
from Fort George merchants.
Again extending gssurance to Fort
George business men that Edmonton
wholesalers are exceedingly anxious
to take care of their requirements
the moment that conditions of transportation permit,

WILLOW RIVER
BRITISH COLUMBIA
At thc 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 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 of lota 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. Thc Original and Official Townsite of Willow River
is located on Lot 785; Station Site approved by the Board of
Railway Commissioners March 26th, 1912, Order No. 16179.
