Rapid Growth of Local System Makes Change Imperative-Service Will be Greatly
Improved.
An improvement in the important
utility of the local telephone service,
which will be appreciated by the many
business houses and others using the
phonos of tho Fort George and Alberta
Telephone and Electric Co., Ltd., is
announced by Manager Gaskill, who
tells The Horald that the whole system
will be "metallicked" this fall, and
that the company will proceed immediately with the erection of a building on
Laselle avenue, on the lot adjoining the
Port (leorge Drug Co. 's store.
The installation of a complete metallic system, with central energy, will
remove the bugbear of the telephone
8)stem that exists at present, the induction inevitable to the "ground"
system where tbe wires, as at present,
work in connection with a circuit wire
which is grounded at different points,
completing the circuit through one wire
and the earth instead of through two
wires, which will be installed in the
new system.
Manager Gaskill and the officers of
the Fort George and Alberta Telephone
and Electric t'o., Ltd., are displaying
much faith in the town of South Fort
George by the construction of their
now building. Speaking of the matter
Manager Gaskill said : "We believe
that this town will always form a most
important part of the business section
of the future city. You have such a
live crowd of business men here that
we must do our best towards improving
your telephone service and bringing it
entirely up to date, as circumstances
justify the expenditure now."
The telephone company have eighty
telephones in this city now, and fifty
in Fort George, where their head office
was established some years ago.
MODERN GARAGE
JEJNG BUILT
The first garage, for the storage and
repair of the many motor cars here, is
now under construction on Laselle avenue near the Fort George Drug Company's fine store.
Mr. Harry Coutef, who has driven
his car here since the automobiles first
appeared in the virgin territory hereabouts, is the man behind the progressive venture. The garage will have a
capacity for about twenty cars, and it
will be equipped with compressed air
tanks and car-waihing apparatus. A
repair shop will form part of this up-
to-date automobile stable.
There are now about eighteen cars
here. Most of them are at present
lying idle owing to the deploi able Btate
of the roads. The drivers now running
are doing so at great risk to their machines, as the sight of one of these
high-powered autos wallowing through
the morasses of our suburban* streets
would convince the most sceptical.
As The Herald has already stated in
its columns the cars here approximate
a valuation of about $75,000, and their
running routes in the townsite areas
here comprise only a few miles of road.
These few miles of road, however, are
in a disgraceful condition, and they
have been in this condition all the year.
It is sincerely to be hoped that the Department of Works, under "Good Roads
Taylor," will see to it that these important highways shall be placed in decent condition early next season, as it
is now too late in the fall season to accomplish any advantageous work be-
foie snow flies.
INDIAN AFFAIRS
OFFICIAL RESIGNS
As a result of the inquiry of Mr.
T. R. Ferguson, K. C, into the
alienation ot the public domain under the Laurier regime, Mr. Frank
Pedley, who has been superintendent ol Indian aflairs since 1902,
lias handed in hiB resignation. His
resignation was at once accepted,
and Mr. Duncan Campbell Scott, the
well known Canadian poet, who has
been connected with the department
lor years and has a splendid record
both lor integrity and ability, has
been appointed in his place.
As a result of the revelations of
Mr. Ferguson, it is expected that
other resignations will follow and
Possibly some prosecutions. The tvl-
dence in the Pedley case has been
placed in the hands of the Justice
Department, and whether there) are
Biidlclent grounds for prosecution ls
""t yet known.
Mr. I'odley was appointed by the
Ubera* Government in 1897 as Su-
l>erintcndent ol immigration, and
was transferred to the Indian Depart*-
menl in 1902,

OIL ABOUNDS IN
PEACE RIVER COUNTRY
Possibilities of the Peace River
district and the far northern territory through which winds the Mackenzie river were interestingly depicted to the Vancouver Progress Club
recently by Mr. Charles Camsell, of
the Dominion geological survey, under auspices of the Vancouver Chamber of Mines. Mr. Camsell's address
was the lirst of a series arranged by
the chamber of mines, and a series
of steroptican slides were shown to
emphasize his address.
Mr. Camsell characterized that district known as the Mj'Venzie River
district which stretcnes nortward
from Athabasca to the Arctic, as unparalleled in the fur trade at present, and a future country where
minerals will be largely produced,
from all present indications. The
mineral indications found there by
Mr. Campbell gave indications of
probably* large deposits of copper,
zink, silver and lead, as well as gold.
In addition to its other vast resources there would be oil. Oil and
tar exudes from the earth in areas
which were spread over from 150,000
to 300,000 acres. These, he said, were
the best possibilities in the world.
Oil, and where to find it, and find it
and tind it iti big quantities, he
said, is Britain'B most intensely interesting problem just now, owing to
the fact that the use of fuel oil is
growing to such a degree that It is
but a question of time when all the
big ships will of necessity have to
use it as the cheapest and best known
fuel for economical operation.
A project is under way for the
construction of a large skating rink
on tho Hudson's Bay 'Company's
slough.
Amongst the arrivals from the
south this week was- Manager Ren-
south this week was Manager Reynolds, late of the North Vancouver
branch of the Bank of British North
America, who will relieve Manager J.
Munro whilst he travels over Scotland enjoying a well-earned holiday.
The stall of the local branch of the
Bank of B.tN.A. has also been increased thia week, the office force
now numbering seven.
CITY STREETS WILL
NOW BE LIGHTED
Mr, M. G. Brown, manager
of the Northern Telephone &
Power Company, informed
The Herald today that it is
the intention of his company
to install street lights at several important points in the
city. These will be put in at
the electric company's own
expense and will be operated
for the benefit of the citizens
without charge,
The public spiritedness of
Mr. Brown's company is extremely commendable, and
coming at this season of the
year will be warmly welcomed by all the citizens of this
rising metropolis.
Since the company first
turned on their current, some
few weeks ago, South Fort
George has assumed all the
airs and graces of a metropolitan city. The business section is now a bloze of bright
lights, and nearly every residence of any pretension is
connected up with the electric
current.
ENJOYABLE TIME AT
ODDFELLOWS' BALL
The second annual masquerade hall
of the Indeoendent Order of Oddfellows, which was held last night in
the Oddfellows' Hall on Hamilton
Avenue*, more than fulfilled the most
optimistic expectations of the committee of management. The Ball may
be cited without fear of contradiction aa the most successful and the
most largely attended dance ever
held in the Fort George District.
The hall was hopelessly over*.
crowded, which proved the only regrettable feature of the event, the
attendance aggregating about three
hundred persons. So great was the
crowd in the hall that the dance was
held up for a few moments by the
authorities whilst the floors were
additionally braced from below.
The costumes worn by the many
characters represented were generally
original and in instances quite elaborate. Prizes were awarded to five
ladies and gentlemen, some of whom
undoubtedly deserved the awards of
the judges as clearly as others of
the chosen ones did not.
The floor of the hall was in excellent condition and the music rendered by John Senior's orchestra was
a feature of the occasion.
The committees of management are
to be congratulated upon the success
which  crowned their efforts.
Before Justice Murphy at Clinton
on October the 14th. Ole Jorgenson
was found guilty of the murder last
February of the boy Inkster, on thc
Lewis ranch, a few miles from Ashcroft. He will be hanged on December
29. The jury was only thirty minutes
in coming to a verdict.
The ladies of the Presbyterian
congcegation of Fort George are
holding a Bazaar next Wednesday
afternoon and evening in the Masonic
Hall on Central Avenue. Fancy goods
of all descriptions and samples of
home-made cooking will be offered for
safe. In the evening the proceedings
will he enlivened by orchestral music.
The proceeds arc in aid of the1
church.
The home of Mr. and Mrs. George
Wase, engineer in charge of the residency a few miles above this point on
the G.T.P., was the scene of a bachelor's dinner party last Saturday evening
which is described by the invited guests
as one of the happiest social events
they ever attended. Mr. and Mrs.
Wase, who live in a pretty location on
the bank of the Fraser river, entertained, besides many engineers and
contractors from the construction line,
a large party of unmarried gentlemen
from this town,
BIG DEAL IN
CLOSE-IN ACREAGE
One of the largest realty deals carried through in the Fort George district
this summer was closed this week in
the sale of the well-known Hamilton
Ranch, across the Nechaco river from
the G.T.P. townsite of Prince George.
Tha deal, which was consummated by
Messrs. Wesley & Wiggins, an old-
time real estate firm of this city, approximated an investment of about
$70,000.
I. E. Haight, cf South Fort George,
and A. M. Hunter, of the Union Realty Company, of this city, a newly established and strong real estate company, of which Mr. A. Hunter, of
Pittsburg, is the president, are the
buyers of this property. Mr. Hunter is heavily interested in Prince
George property, and is investing large
sums of money in property here on
finding from personal investigation
that Prince George property and the
surrounding territory is entirely up to
the expectations he had formed from a
distance.
Mr. Hunter believes that the Hamilton Ranch, situated as it i9 within half
a mile of the business centre of the
Prince George townsite, where lots recently sold at auction for as high as
fourteen thousand dollars, will develop
into an important industrial site. The
property is level and beautifully situated to fulfil Mr. Hunter's optimistic
belief. Lying to the east of the high
cut banks known as Dean's Heights,
the Hamilton Ranch stretches evenly
back from the Nechaco river at a height
of only ten to thirty feet above high
water mark.
The property has a history worth relating in so far that through an error
of a provincial land surveyor, made
when the property was surveyed many
years ago, the acreage included in the
survey, which was not allowed to exceed 640 acres, was found later to include a much larger area, and the government altered their maps and a contest resulted for possession of the
excessive acreage. The Lands Department eventually rendered a commendable decision in permitting the land to
go to Mr. Hamilton, whose original
application was supposed to cover the
whole area.
The property will be offered for sale
by the Union Realty Company and other real estate firms at an early date,
and it will undoubtedly sell for high
values, and owing to its strategic position should find a ready market.
No Truth in Statement That
Express Company Will Remove Boats to Peace River
Next Year.
PROPOSED RAILWAY
FOR TBE INTERIOR
Scheme to Construct New Line
From Kamloops to Barkerville via Quesnel.
There is a possibility that in the near
future New British Columbia will have
another railway started. Mr. A. Reed,
of Winnipeg, a well-known man in the
prairie capital, has been in Victoria for
several days, and it is believed that his
object is to secure a charter from the
provincial government for a line to
connect Kamloops with Quesnel and
Barkerville, and incidentally open up a
splendid stretch of rich mining country.
No definite information can yet be
obtained in regard to the project, but
it is believed that full details of the
scheme will be issued shortly. |The
rough outline of the route as described
indicates that the proposed road wil)
have its terminals at Kamloops and
Barkerville. After leaving Kamloops
the line stretches up the Thompson
River to Clearwater Lake and thenca
to Horsefly Lake across the "height of
land," down the Horsefly River to
Qucsii'l and thenco on to Barkerville.
Jus who are the peopla behind the
proposition it is impossible to say at
this time, but it is rumored that in time
it will be connected with one or other
of the great railway corporations already operating in the province.
The winter outfit of the British Columbia Express Company came up on
tha last run of the B. C. Express last
week to Quesnel, in charge of Sam
Boyd, and it is now strung along the
road between this point and Quesnel.
This equipment includes the horses,
Thorough brace Concord coaches, the
special winter sleighs which have been
built in the B.X. shops this summer for
the run between here and Quesnel, and
the drivers and stablemen to drive and
look after the stock.
Driver Jimmy Gannon, well known
on the Cariboo road, will drive out of
South Fort George this winter as heretofore, and Joe Greniur, another well-
known whip, will drive stage between
Blackwater and Quesnel. Three new,
specially designed Bleighs of great capacity hav* been constructed for service on the Queinel-South Fort George
run.
Mr. Stewart Adamson, purser on tha
steamer B. C. Express, and for many
years past an employee of the company
in different capacities, called on The
Herald this week on behalf of the
transportation company, to request us
to correct, through these columns, a
rumor given birth to by an irresponsible journal published in these parts
to the effect that the British Columbia
Express Company would move their
fleet of steamers into the Peace river
watershed as a result of the company
having lost the Cariboo mail contract.
Nothing, Mr. Adamson assures us, is
further from the intention of the British Columbia Express Company than to
remove any portion of their transportation plant from the route of travel
between Ashcroft, Fort George and
the Upper Fraser river. Their company and its predecessors have been
common carriers on the Cariboo road
and into Fort George since the beginning of things, and the I03S of the mail
contract, considering the uncertainty
of its future volume and the growth of
the more profitable express business,
we judge from the expressions of different officers of the B. C. Express
Company to be more of a blessing in
disguise than a loss of a serious naiu.a
to their business.
To demonstrate the absurdity of the
report circulated, Mr. Adamson stated
that til arrangements had been completed to lengthen the steamer B. C.
Express ten feet during the coming
winter in older that her freighting
capacity might be increased. Tnis
work would not be undertaken if ihe
company were about to dismantle then-
boats.
That the B. C- Express Company
will eventually extend their transportation system into the Peace river
country via the Giscombe Portage route
or the route advocated by The Herald
by way of tha Salmon river, connecting
with a proposed wagon road following
the direction of the Bad river to the
height of land where the headwaters of
the Parsnip river can be reached by
steamboat from the Peace river, is as
likely as was the extension of their
system from Quesnel into Fort George
when development first started. The
Herald has tried on different occasions
to bring the possibilities of the Peace
river route to the attention of the B.X.
officials, and we have their assurances
that the company are very much interested in these same possibilities, and
this means much with progressive concerns like the B.X.
The construction of offices! and
other buildings now under way on
Hamilton Avenue, has built that
thoroughfare up solidly from Second
Street to Third. Every available foot
of building space has been utilized
on the street between those points.

THE Imperial Express Company, successful tenderers
for the Cariboo mail contract, do not appear to be
perfecting the promised organization for the delivery of
the people's mail on schedule, or any sort of decent substitute for a schedule, which might be tolerated T>y the
impatient public until the new organization has had sufficient time to properly equip its line with the numberless
trappings demanded by the magnitude of the service
they have undertaken.
It is one month ago that the new carrying company
commenced to fulfil their contract to the postal department for the delivery of mail matter throughout the
Cariboo. Speaking for the Fort George end of the route
we can say with uncompromising candor that so far the
service performed has been absolutely rotten. It suggests bad management, poor judgment, and a contract
undertaken without a proper realization of its magnitude.
We hope that the Imperial Express Company will arrange the delivery of mail as it should be delivered without any further demonstration of how it should not.
There must surely be some forfeiture clause for delayed
delivery, and in the event of the service struggling along
days behind schedule these penalties should be exacted,
and we commend this to the attention of PostofFice Inspector Greenfield, a public servant who seldom falls
short of his duty.
The reason for the foregoing is out of what we consider our duty to the public. Great activity in real estate,
the planning of large development for the spring, railroad construction and countless large interests depend
entirely for the results of their communication with the
supply centres in the railway world outside upon the
mail delivered over the long Cariboo road from Ashcroft.
If this service fails through a dilatory execution by the
mail contractors, the people of this country as a whole
must suffer the consequences.
^hE Victoria Colonist, one of the most influential dailies
in the province, and a paper which is in the confidence of the provincial government to a large extent,
came out editorially the other day in favor of some legislation or government supervision that will prevent real
estate frauds. That the subdivision game has become a
scandal in Western Canada has been pointed out frequently in Saturday Night which has not been slow to
name instances. The Colonist is more reticent about the
cause of its indignation.   It says:
"We have been informed that on a certain inlet of the
sea, and in a place where the rocks come down almost
perpendicularly, a townsite has been 'located' and the
lots are being offered for sale. Our informant says that
some of the so-called waterfront lots, if they are 120 feet
deep, will be 120 feet above sea level at the rear, and the
second street from the water will be along the face of a
nearly perpendicular cliff. It is a rascally thing to offer
such property for sale. This is, perhaps, the most glaring case of dishonest townsite promotion of which we
have heard. The lots will not be offered for sale in this
part of the country; but they find purchasers elsewhere
among people who cannot for a moment believe that any
one would be so dishonest as to sell something that is absolutely worthless."
It then proceeds to advocate legislation to deal with
such cases of real estate dishonesty—and it may be pointed out here that the case mentioned is not an isolated
one by any means-"that will make the perpetration of
such frauds, if not impossible, at least attended by such
risks that few persons will care to face it. What we
wish to see stopped is the obtaining of money under false
pretences through the medium of townsite advertisements." The Colonist suggests that an amendment to
the Criminal Code may be necessary to meet the case.
More conscience and less greed in the advertising departments of newspapers themselves would go far to meet
the case. To place in the hands of government inspectors the decision as to what subdivisions should be advertised and what suppressed offers unlimited vistas of
subterfuge and perhaps graft, as well as undue discrimination and mistakes in judgment.-Toronto Saturday
Night.
Now we are sick! After knocking this town and all
that therein is, the Fort George Tribune, practically owned by George J. Hammond, is trying to sell stock to the
people of this town and will establish an office here.
Next week we will deal with this matter more fully.

Not because we are the pioneer
merchants of this city, but purely
on account of our prices, treatment
and the merit of our goods.
When we came to Cariboo first
the Fraser river was merely a
stream.
The Nechaco had just been dug,
In those days Fort George was lying in embryo, waiting to be fertilized by the industries and population of a great city, and the Ken-
nedy-Blair Co., Ltd., was unborn.
Since then we have watched all
three grow to maturity.
The Fraser a great river;
South Fort George budding into a
great city; and
The Kennedy-Blair Co., Ltd., into
a great mercantile firm.
We mean to keep pace and be a
credit to our city, and realize that
in order to do so we must be consistent and treat our customers on the
square.
We do not intend to get rich on
one customer, but by a small profit
on many thousands we expect to attain thc same result.

British Columlia made a notable success at the Canadian Land and Apple
Show just held at Winnipeg, winning
two gold medals, one for the best collection of apples and the other for the
for the best display of natural resources. The apple exhibit was a carload containing over thirty varieties.
The display of natural resources was
perhaps the most complete ever shown
in this country. It included fruits,

There was a splendid display of tobacco
from Kelowna and minerals were shown
from every paying mine in the province. There were forty-three specimens
of food fish of British Columbia and
forest products were shown from each
variety of native tree. The awards
were conclusive evidence of the wealth

WATER NOTICE.
THE SIBOLA CHEEK STRIKE
Two outfits on Sibola Creek, the
scene of the recent gold strike southwest of Smithers, are digging to bed
rock, and two other crews are on their
way in to work this winter. All will
watch with interest the outcome of
sinking operations, for once bedrock is
reached the richness of the diggings
can be estimated.
Leo  McLaughlin   and   partner  are
down   thirteen   feet  on  their  bench I
claim, which  adjoins No. 3 below Dis-'
covery.   They are timbering the shaft
and  have installed a windlass.   They
have supplies for two months.
George Barrett and Joseph Bussinger
have a good outfit on the ground, including a rocker and provisions for four
months. They expect to get down to
bedrock before they quit for the winter.
The big bench flat north of Sibola
Creek has all been staked, but no work
has been done with the exception of an
eight-foot hole on the claim. Colors
were found but no coarse gUJ. The
wash here is deep and as the gravel is
a loose formation pay dirt could not be
expected until a denser stratum is
reached.
On the bench west of camp there is
promising ground, sedimentary in character and marked with dry water
courses. Pay has not yet been found
here, although colors were fairly plentiful. Work on the creek itself ceased
when the owners of No. 9 below Discovery failed to reach bedrock after
going down twelve feet. They were
driven out by water.
"Kid" Price, the discoverer, claims
to have found gold en another creek 12
miles to the east but did not ttake anything, preferring to wait until the
ground could be prospected further.
APPLICATION for a Licence to take
and use water will be made under
the "Water Act" of British Columbia,
as follows:—The name of the applicant
is The Door River Development Co.,
agent James R. McLennan. The ad-
address of the applicant is Edson,
berta. The name of the stream is
Door River, which has its source in the
Rocky Mountains, flows in a northerly
direction and empties into Fraser River, about four miles west of McBride,
B.C. The purpose for which the water
will be used is industrial and power.
The land on which the water is to be
used is described as follows : Dam on
an area of 60 acres, 150 feet long and
12 feet high. The quantity applied for
is 2640 cubic feet per second. This notice was posted on the ground on the
14th day of October, 1913. A copy of

AS BUFFALO TRAIL
John C. Knott, an employee of
the Hudson's Bay Trading Company, who has been stationed in
the north country, on the fringe
of the Arctic circle, the last
twenty-eight years, has gone
to Edmonton to visit friends of
his boyhood days and get into
touch, as he puts it, with modern
commercial and industrial methods, Edmonton, now a city of
70,000 population, had less than
50 when Knott passed through
from the east in 1878. Where
large herds of buffalo broke the
trails in those days he found
paved streets and boulevards,
lined with substantial business
houses and pretty homes, The
Red river ox cart and dog teams
have given way to high power
touring cars, spanking teams
and electrically propelled street
cars of the latest models, and
the Saskatchewan river, formerly forded or crossed by rope
ferry, is now spanned by structures of steel, concrete and stone.
The pioneer from the silent
north reports that the fur catch
this year will reach the $2,000,-
000 mark.

Hon. Charles Stewart, minister
of municipal affairs, announces
that official notification has been
given to all organized cities in
the province of Alberta that the
government purposes to amend
all charters, to prevent cities
from granting bonuses or other
aid to corporations, industries or
manufacturers. The proposed
amendment provides that no city
may exempt such corporations
from taxation, nor subscribe
stock or guarantee the interest
on bonds or debentures. This
will place towns and villages and
rural municipalities on an equality with cities, and the effect
will be to terminate a practice
that has resulted in much contention and strife and costly litigation, The action is in accord
with the expression of the Union
of Alberta municipalities, which,
at a recent convention, passed
resolutions condemning bonusing
of all kinds. The legislature will
enact the law at the present ses-
Nine new clubs will establish
quarters in Edmonton if the
committee on private bills of the
provincial legislature, now in
session there, reports favorably,
as anticipated, upon the applications for incorporation, filed
during the last few days.
Among the applicants are the
Dominion, Jasper, Venice, University. United Service and Commercial clubs. There are already
five organized clubs, the pioneer
being the Edmonton, which has
pretentious quarters overlooking
the Saskatchewan river and valley in the heart of the business
district. The Northern Club has
plans to erect a club house costing $250,000, upon which construction work will begin early
next spring. The Country Club,
whose home was destroyed by
fire some time ago, has awarded
a contract for new quarters,
which will be ready for occupancy in thirty days.
Definite announcement has
been made by Sir Donald Mann,
vicr-pr:sident of the Canadian
Northern railway, that through
passenger trains will be running
from Montreal to Pacific coast
points not later than August 1,
1914, when the company will
have completed 10,500 miles of
line in Canada. He also said that
through trains will be in operation between Toronto and Edmonton early next June.

The Grand Trunk Pacific Railway Company are

lots in the new town of Willow River at the confluence of the Fraser, Salmon and Willow rivers.
By those who are in close touch of the true conditions, this new town is considered to be one of
future importance in Central British Columbia.
In investing in Willow River property be sure
that your property comes to you direct from the
Grand Trunk Pacific Railway Company-make no
mistake in this. There is only one official and
original Grand Trunk Pacific Railway town of
Willow River at the confluence of the Fraser,
Salmon and Willow rivers. It is located on Lot
785. Station site was approved by Board of Railway Commissioners under date of March 26th,

Engineer Aylmer, of the Dominion
Puhlic Works Department, who is in
the district in connection w/th the
opening up of the rivers for navigation, is also looking into the matter
of a government wharf here. Surveys
for this project are now being made.
The surveying of the grade from the
lower flat to the Miller holdings on the
Prince George townsite, round the
eastern extremity of Connaught Park,
commenced this week, 'lhe grade will
run west of the road now being used,
and it will cut into the foot of the hill
which forms Connaught Park.
The steamer B.X., which left here
last Wednesday morning for Soda
Creek on what was reported as the last
journey of the season, will return here
immediately, according to reports just
received, with Charles Miller on board,
Mr. Miller, as we have already announced, will sell his lar ,e holdings in
Prince George by private sale here.
Halloween, a fixture on the calendar
intended as a safety-valve for fools
and mischievous kids, pasaed by last
night with the usual inane stunts of
the prowling joker. If it wasn't for
Halloween a lot of people would have
very little to look forward to during
the year—it is "their" day.
The mail service, since the Imperial
Express Company have taken the contract over, has been excruciatingly rotten. We are now receiving exchanges
for October Ilth, and this appears to
I e the latest second-class mail matter
received. We recently received from
a Quesnel lawyer a legal advertisement
mailed in Quesnel on October 7, calling
for insertion in this paper in our issues
of the Ilth and 18th. This letter was
not delivered here until October 20.
Great improvements have been mad.
to the Hotel Northern recently by Al.
Johnson, the progressive proprietor of
the big hotel. The office, dining room
and sitting room have been covered
with pressed metal of pleasing design,
and painted. This improves the appearance of the rooms and at the same
time protects them against fire to a
large degree.
The Montgomery Shield, coveted
trophy of the football players, was won
last Sunday by the Fort George team
by a score of 1-0. Throughout the
game the local boys put up a splendid
battle for the trophy, but the heavier
players from the Nechaco townsite
proved too strong for them, [and in
spite of the excellent play of the local
team they were unable to score. Murray, for the Fort George team, played
a splendid game, scoring the only goal.
Both teams played for all that was in
them, and without a doubt the game
was the fastest event on the football
card for the year. This is tho first
sporting trophy that has ever been
won by the Nechaco town in competition against South Fort George.
Amateur Night at the Fort George
Theitre last Thursday proved an amusing event at the big playhouse. The
several performers pulled off their
various stunts to a delighted though
critical audience, all the performers
escaping unhurt in body, although the
feelings of some might have been
somewhat ruffled by their reception. A
black-faced comedian mad. his debut
in a careful make-up, but waited too
long in cutting loose his line of comedy,
causing some impatient spectators in
the gallery to offer him kind adviee
such as "Naw, you-all beat it, Sambo,"
"Dey's gettin' de hook fo' you," A
spasmodic comedian off the grade, with
an impediment in his speech, took the
lirst prize, the second going to J. McDonald for recitations, and the third to
Mr. Myson for a recitation.
In spite of the lateness of the
season the line weather still continues warm here.
