Several Grand Trunk survey

nation   surveys   between   the

Monday last was fittingly observed as New Year's Day here.
The  gentJemen    called   on tho
adies—a beautiful western cus-
Koui—and (he   ladies stayed at
Rome and entertained one and
fali. Everyone shook hands and
fliffuSed   ple.sant     smiles, glad
,'ishes and joy.
Tlie   thermomet t     has been
[busy registering  degrees below
[zero for the past few days. This
is not a continuous feature, but
[lias lately come upon  us  with
[the shades of darkness. During
'the day it is comfortably warm
with    ahnost    invariable sunshine. So    far the lowest temperature   recorded    was  about
thirty degrees below zero.
A New Year's dance was held
in the Fort Georgo Theatre on
Fourth Street on Monday evening last whieh was very well
attended. The ladies selected
their partners from amongst
the gentk'men instead of vice-
versa and the novelty of this
feature caused considerable amusement. The dancing continued
until 3 a. m.

Wright's wagon road at its

distriet live on the Cariboo

vastly important by-ways of

people of South Fort George,
lhe new centre of the Cariboo
Dislrict. We do not attach
blame to Mr, Eraser in this, as
in matters of such moment as
the location of the government
biddings     here the   issue was
! taken out. of his hands and left
(for the decision of the govern-
| ment in Victoria, by the citizens
here themselves. The denoeu-
ment of such governmental errors as that made in the matter
referred to, however, drives us
to request   a re-distribution of
.seats, or iho creation of a new
I
electoral district in such manner
that the wpper Fraser river and
! Peace river districts obtain representation in Victoria.
The lower Cariboo country is
easily administered.   Ids constituents clamour   for little   else
than water   rights, or a road,
a trail or a bridge here or there,
i There arc   two small towns in
its domains, -Quesnel an old distributing centre for upper Cariboo, and a prosperous agricultural centre; and Barkerville, of
gold mines and ancient history.
;0ne man of average mental cal-
jibre can represent that portion
| of the Cariboo   Electoral Dist-
j rict, and by the exercising of energetic interest in the welfare of
his constituency,   could represent it well
The need of a forceful representation for upper, or new, Cariboo, however, is obvious up
hero. A man is wanted who
knows the requirements of the
district and who will insist on
proper recognition by fearless
advocacy, and who will not be
afraid to stand up and tell tho
government that their attitude
towards his constituency does
not suit, the people he represents—should the occasion arise.
When a provincial election
looms up on ihe political horizon in British Columbia, same
gentleman of the cause almost
invariably precedes tike big event, even within tho remote confines of Cariboo, and addresses
a public meeting. He tells us
how the McBride government
has upbuilt the province's finances, since coining to power, so
many years ago. He will dwell
upon the surplus—the accumulated cash — and tell us how
much money is being spent on
public works. If some unfeeling
mamber of the audience will ask
him for an approximate idea of
the comparison between revenue
and expenditure for our own
particular district he will not
receive such infirmation, for
such a statement would show
that appropriations for developing the district are as a
grain of dust in comparison to
, the revenue derived from the
i sale of timber and lands in the
1 district.
It is time we hardened
our hearts. Let the government
at Victoria understand that in
this vast region of New British
Columbia we want political results.
A. G. Hamilton antl Provincial constable McCauley, returned from the Stewart Lake
country this week. Mr. Hamilton states that business is brisk
at Fort St. dames. "Billy" Williamson is developing into a
great fur-trader. lie has never
yet fallen into tho error, common to many young buyers, of
purchased a bob-tailed coyote
for a lynx, and ho is capable of

The iMite of Gold.
Over in India King George
went hunting with six hundred
elephants and forty automobiles
and shot three tigers and an
equal number of rhinoceroses,
on December 21st. From such
expeditions originate the phrase
"royal sport".' In British Columbia we have neither tigers
or elephants to hunt them with,
but we have bears whieh may
be hunted afoot, a.s they do KOI
spring, by a man with a gun
and a dog, with tolerable success.
H. S. Clements. M. J', for
Coinox-Atlin, states thut the
government at Ottawa intends
to make a material reduction in
"ight-letter rates to apply to
(lie Dominion government telegraph service. ' That is very
nice for (.'omox-Atlin. We would
like to draw the attention of
"on. Martin Burrell, whottn
'his distinct is fortunate in
fl'dming as ils representative at
Ottawa, that probably lhe most
unsatisfactory and expensive
telegraph service rendered to a
.Voiing, prosperous and atnbif-
10118 city, is (hat to which we
i'liist pay toll here. The Dominion government Yukon wire,
which transmits messages for
l>is point from Ashcroft to
''1|! Blackwater station, a dist-
linc<s of about 270 miles, allows
"" night letter rate at all, and
,,|mi'ges an exorbitant figure for
"''insmission. From Blackwater F-"'
n l^aky local tree line adds its
(l'iota to the message which is
"'"'iNniitted by telephone.
The lure of gold with all its
tragic uncertainties, when once
possessed by a placer miner,
persists until death or until
vast wealth has lien accumil-
ated. It is well illustrated by
the career of Mr. W. M. Ogden,
a well known operator in the
Cariboo district, says the Vanoouver Province. He is arranging the purchase of a plant for
tlie Ogden Gold Mining Company Limited, of Ligntning
Creek.
For the period of nineteen
years has he with varying success, sought fortunes at bedrock
on half a score of creeks in that
once famous placer mining district. Tiie thousands of dollars
secured from one clean-up is
often lost in seeking richer propositions .Now the gold proves
to exist in smaller quantities,
or else the miner meets with
mishap by doing drowned out in
his underground workings by
an influx of water. These arc
some of the discouraging experiences of tht; gold-seeker, but
a e faced every day in Northern
British Columbia or Alaska.
Lightning Creek in lite height
of its boom in the early days of
a now historical rush from all
purls of lhe world \ ielded up
no less (kan 812,000,000 in
placer gold according lo the of-
The Vancouver Daily Province recently broke all records
for (|,e production of th" great-
tieial record. Over 10,000 people
sought their fortunes in
Caribo district between the 60s
and the 70s. Then the reaction
set in when the best tbsn known
ground svas worked out anu'no
new important discoveries were
made.
Wr. Ogden has always firmly
believed that the ancient channel of Lightning Creok would
sooner or later be discovered at
a point near where the old
workings were abandoned. It
was a joyful day for him when
his labors wore rewarded by
what \w believes lo lie
the ancient channel of the creok
in a bench about 150 feet abovo
the present bed of the channel.
After the expenditure of a great
deal of time and money he succeeded in locating what is
known as tic "upper run". He
has, he says, established fo his
own satisfaction that the width
of the rim of the old channel is
at least 20 feet wide.
Early next spring he will
start work tunnelling in about
250 feet from the sides of the
canyon into bedrock of the old
channel and thence drift up-
stream. He will install an 800
foot aerial (ram (o convey tlw
pay dirt to lhe sluice boxes along the banks of tho present
creek.
The location of the station
grounds on a Hazelton town-
site, which has been a bone of
contention between conflicting
townsite interests at that point
was settled by Judge Mabee,
Chairman of the Board of Railway Commissioners at a session
of that body held in Ottawa to
decide the question. Judge
Mabee ruled that the G. T. P.
erect and maintain a railroad
station at South Hazelton, or
Lot 882. It was chosen by
Chief Engineer Taylor of the
railway company, who is here
at present. In his opinion it
was the only place within several miles the topographical
features of which presented no
difficulties, it being on grade
and a townsite that required
neither cuts nor fills. The registered map made from this report
is on file at the government
land office and bears the official
notification of tike secretary of
the Railway Commission that
it received the attention of the
board September 24, 1909.
This plan shows an allotment
of 29.03 acres for station and
station yards. The townsite
was commonly known as Tayl-
orsville, but upon Robert Kelly
becoming the purchaser of the
land ft was spoken of as tho
Kelly lot and later as New
Hazelton. But the 29 acres did
not satisfy the railway company. It demanded a large portion of the townsite and this
not being conceded proceeded to
exploit a townsite at Ellison,
about three miles nearer Prince
Rupert.
Lots were advertised and sold
in this townsite, but recently it
was held that a sufficiently level
grade for station purposes could
not be made there without
great expense. The company
then took up Lot 85-1, a short
distance eastward, and exploited a townsite there as South
Hazelton. An auction sale of
lots was advertised upon whieh
Mr. Kelly tried to obtain an injunction against such sale until
after the decision of the Railway Commission as to the
rights of New Hazelton to have
the depot. Mr. Kelly failed in
his action, and the auction took
place. Legal • complications are
likely to follow as a result of
this sale.
Judge Mabee made strong
comments upon this evidence of
the company's attempts . to
change the location of a station
to Lot 851 when the Commission had already sanctioned it
being placed on Lot 882, and
particulary the company's advertising of this change all over
the continent. He decided that
so far as lay in his power he
would put a stop to the exploitation of public lands by
railway companies or anyono
else when in violation of solemn
agreements.
"I have never known a more
deliberate attempt to deprive
an individual of his rights, and
I want to say so most emphatically," he said.
"If any private individual had
done what the Grand Trunk
Pacific attempted to do in this
case he would have been in the
penitentiary, and justly so,"
"An order will be issued compelling the Grand Trunk Pacific
to locate its station at the
point at whieh it agreed to locate it, and an injunction will
be issued against tlicir carrying
out their own plans," he said.

STEAMBOATS ON WAY.
Neatly [lacked in ten cars of
a special Canadian Pacific
freight train, two steamboats
will leave Vancouver today on
a long overland trip to the Northern Interior of British Columbia, says a recent issue of
I thi' Vancouver Province. Prom
Vancouver to Calgary, they
they will go from Calgary to
Edmonton, and from Edmonton to Tete Jaune Cache on the
upper Fraser some 1200 miles in
all. For some years these rock-
scarred vessels have been operating through the canyons of
the Skeena, carrying railroad
steel and other supplies to 'the
construction camps of Foley,
I Welch, & Stewart on thc Grand
Trunk Pacific line. Now the
j tables are turned and for a few
days the railroads must carry
them.
|   A month or moro ago tlwo two
stornwheelers were take to Victoria under     their own steam
and dismantled at tho yards of
the Victoria   Machinery Depot.
I Thc cars containing the steam-
|ers arrived in Vancouver bv the
'transfer barge and have left on
; their long treck inland. During
j the winter they will be rebuilt
| at Tete Jaune Cache and in
i April or May will begin bringing freight from the end of steel
Ion the Fraser down to Fort
j Goorge.
The two   steamers will havo
(to carry in railroad equipment
jand    supplies   for    about five
thousand men, and it is unlikely that they     will be   able w>
j transport   any   general freight
until late in   the season. It ie
planned to run large quantities
of supplies down to Fort George
on barges, twenty of which are
now being built at Tete Jaune
Cache.     These    barges will bo
guided downstream by the Distributor    and     Conveyor and

will be well attended, and that.

Held   of     usofuliiioss   for South
Port   Goorge as   the   hub and
business centre    ol*   the   whole
dislrict, to advance its best interests; to maintain the location
of a   business    section    in the
proper channels   for an expansive and desirable development,
and once and for all time to divorce the   legitimate   and progressive aims of the public at
large   from    the   schemes   and
counter-interests    of    townsite
promoters, who   influence local
conditions   in   a    manner detrimental to    the futute of this
young  and    ambitious city by
exploiting and exaggerating the
possibd lies,  however groat,  of
the pluce in   conjunction with
their object    of spreading   the
boundaries   of   sub-divisions as
far as possible into tlie woods
as their campaign   of   lot-peddling at long distance v. iil justify.  The     proceediire    leaves a
townsite abortion   to niarr or
ruin the future of the real town
which  comes   into    being with
more timely   development, and
which is contained within practicable  boundaries,   and wisely
promoted aud administered.
Oar contemporaries have been
pleased   lo  refer    to  the  "Fort
(leorge controversy" as an example of a deplorable townsite
war.  It is in reality a pre-eminent     example   of   these   eon-
ditions to   which we have just
referred,  lhe Herald has camped  un laggingly upon tho frail
of llie most notable discounter
of townsite futures who works
irrespective of rational development (to get (ho coin), in British Columbia. We have not yet
quite   finished     our   campaign
for the protection of public interests from    the inroads upon
(heir capital made by the misrepresentation    of    properties.
So through lhe machinations
of a bluffing townsite promoter
the bona-ficle town, South Fort
Oeorge   wiih its    censensus of
bus ness interests and maximum
population has suffered severely
Our mail    is carried   six  miles
beyond ils destination; tho administration of    (he provincial
governmeni was juggled with to
such an extent that the governmenl  had to     compromise lx>-
(ween   lhe  people and   the  promoter by  building   their temporary offices on a half way lot,
in    spite of the   faci   that tb.

word is   usually    a power, recommended thai   the buildings
be     circled    nt     South    Fort
George;  a  subsidized  press has
instilled wrong impressions into
the public   at   large anil thousands of poor     investors have
been led astray   in tho investment field   Cereby.   And    this
Ij ts    been    accomplished   by a
plnusaWe lying promoter whose
past  would disgrace any back-
ally strong-arm thug that ever i
relieved    the     wayfarer   of   his
watch,   if the   evidence   which I
we are accumulating for future

The incorporation of this

und 8th., 1912, gather in Ottawa to discuss what they hope

und the concern of the Government is shown in the fact that
the meetings will be held in thc

that a number of Parliamentary leaders will be in attendance. The railways have granted special rates.
On Hue even int; of February
7th. a banquet in which the
members of the Canadian Lumbermen's Association will participate with the Forestry Association, has been arranged.
The Lumbermqn will hold their

lar^e numbers to discuss with
the members of the Forestry
Association matters respecting

nnd regulations wKch vitally
affect them, and which are also
of concern to every tax payer
in Canada.
