■nie oil switch in the plant of
the Northern Telephone and
Power Company's power house
WBs thrown in by Mr. Charles
MiHer, president of the British
Columbia Express Company, and
Mr Thomas Heme, government
agent here, last Tuesday evening
at 6:30. The lights were instantly thrown on to the business houses on the lighting circuit. For the first time in the
history of the Cariboo district
commercial electric light was delivered for public consumption.
The power house was the
scene of a demonstration on the
occasion of the company's operations commencing, and Mr.
Melville Brown, the electrical
engineer who installed the plant
and the man who conceived and
promoted the company for the
lighting of this city, was warmly congratulated by those present
for the enterprise and energy
which led up to the installation
of the splendid plant.
At (i:30 steam was turned into
the high-speed Goldie & McCul-
logh engine, and the generator
was set in motion. The engine,
a 3(hi r.p.m, "Ideal" type, ran
without the slightest vibration,
and the whole plant, bedded
down in tons of concrete, makes
so little noise whilst running
that it can scarcely be heard on
Laselle Avenue, only the length
of a lot distant. Within a month
the whole town will be on the
circuit of the power company.
To South Fort George this will
prove an inestimable benefit.
The effect of electric light upon
a town at night is equivalent to
the effect of sunshine during the
day dispelling the depressing effects of a sky overcast with
clouds.
The Northern Telephone and
Power Company's rates for
lighting will compare favorably
with similar rates on the railroad
towns to the south. The service will be continuous throughout the hours of darkness, Light
and power will be supplied.and the
company will add largely to their
present capacity as soon as the
consumption of the present unit
approaches exhaustion.
NEW REALTY FIRM HAS
LARGEJNVESTHENTS
Williams, Murdoff and Gething
Open Offices and Will Handle
Prince George Property
Amongst the arrivals here this week
from Edmonton was Mr. F. L. Murdoff, a widely known real estate man
of Vancouver, where his firm, Williams
and Murdoff, has done business in the
real estate market for many years
past. Mr. Murdoff, together with his
partners, Messrs. D. G. Williams and
Neil Gething, the latter of whom is
well known throughout the Northern
Interior from the far reaches of the
Peace south through the Cariboo district, will immediately open a branch
of their real estate business in thi?
town.

Work on the foundation of another
large building on Hamilton Avenue was
commenced this week, when Messi'B.
William and Thomas Blair, well known
local merchants, let the contract for a
building 111 feet in length and two
stories in height, to Contractors Brew-
ster & Pelham.
The big building is to house several
large businesses on the ground floor,
and a portion of it will be used by
Messrs. Kennedy, Blair & Company
themselves for a department of their
growing business.
The arrangements for this building
completes a group of splendid structures at the north end of the South
Fort George townsite. Opposite the
new building is the Northern Hotel,
the largest single structure in the Cariboo district today. Next door, to the
east, the recently moved Fort George

George Hardie, who purchased property  for the  railroad contractors,   this
lamilton Avenue is the Broadway of
Cariboo; on it one may see every type
of human being. Hundreds of railroad
laborers clamor in the divers tongues
of the civilized world over their sordid
affairs. Well dressed men parade the
broad thoroughfare, rubbing shoulders
with steamboat crews, chaffeurs, huge
husky scow men and "canyon cats," as

BIG DEMAND FOR
I'RINEEGEORGE LOTS
The excitement in Prince George
real estate has begun in ernest. The
firms handling the new townsite here
are reaping a rich harvest from the
resale of lats at Large advances.
The sale of Prince George property
is based upon the expectations of the
large development which will take,
place there in the spring, and the
vastly increasing values, in the judge-
meot of real estate men of long experience, arc amply justified, and the
most conservative operators admit
that the present prices are far from
those which will be reached and maintained before development starts in
ernest on the townsite.
To The Herald it would appear
that the lots now offered are the
holdings of the small speculators.
The market is at present the demand
of speculators for lots with which to
speculate, and the business section
does not appear to be so much effected   as   the   residential property.
The properties purchased for business purposes is of course not offered for sale, and the large holdings of several heavy investors are
not in the market. This serves to indicate that these buyers, who are
wise in the ways of western real estate, do not consider that values
have yet reached a point where they
are justified in placing their property on the market.
MASQUERADE BALL
The Independent Order of
Oddfellows have announced their
second annual masquerade ball,
to he held in the Oddfellows'
Hall, Hamilton Avenue, on Friday, October 31st.
The masquerade ball of the Oddfellows has become one of the
fixed events in the social life of
this city, and the success which
■•as attended the ball in the past
foretells the vast success of the
coming event.
Prizes, to be announced later,
will be awarded for the costumes
W0''*i by the ladies and gentlemen attending the event.

site, they also hold an area of 159 acres
north of the G.T.P. tracks at the north
easterly corner of the land embraced
by the G.T.P. townsite area. This
land is separated from the main town-
site area by a narrow channel. It was
originally the pre-emption of Mr. Russell Peden, a well-known lumberman of
this section.
Besides their holdings in the immediate vicinity of the townsite zone
here, the firm of Williams, Murdoff &
Gething also control large tracts of
agricultural and coal lands in the Peace
river section, where Mr. Murdoff acquired these interests years ago, when
the great future of the Peace river
section was apparent only to men of
such foresight as himself and his associates.
Mr Murdoff has opened temporary
offices in the Fort George Theatre, immediately opposite the Northern Hotel
on Hamilton Avenue. The firm has
arranged for offices in the new Blair
building at the corner of Hamilton Avenue and Third Street immediately
upon the completion of the building.
Thirteen hundred miles in a
wooden canoe on the swift northern rivers and 300 miles overland
through a wilderness in nine
weeks, is a trip just completed
by C. D. Melville, a member of
the Dominion Fisheries Board,
and John McKenna, both of Edmonton. The trip afforded the
former an opportunity to investigate the possibilities of the
northern waters, which, he reports, teem with white and other
fish.
Melville killed two bull moose
and two big bears, shooting from
a canoe while spinning along the
Peace and Wabasca rivers, which
drop more than 900 feet in a distance of 320 miles. The banks
are from 50 to 100 feet above the
water level. He reports seeing
large numbers of moose, bear
and other big game, and wild
geese, ducks and pheasants. He
and McKenna also found indications of asphalt, sulphur, iron
and other metals on the way
from Athabasca to Fort Vermilion. The voyageurs visited
the provincial government's experimental farm, six miles from
Fort Vermilion, midway between
of some "squaw" from the ranchene.
It is a great place to study human nature.
BASKETBALL.
Basketball is the latest ath
letic event to attract the attention of the sporting fraternity of
this city. With the completion
of the splendid roller rink on
Third street by Messrs. Jack
McGaghran and Gordon Bain,
teams have been made up, representing business houses, as
follows:

To date Patterson's and Sullivan's teams are ahead, winning
one game each last Wednesday
night. The next fixture on the
basketball card will be played
next Wednesday night in the
Roller Rink at 8 o'clock.
The fourth game in the series for
the Montgomery shield will be played tomorrow at Fort George hetween
tne teams of Fort George and South
Fort George. The game played on
Sunday last resulted in the defeat of
the home team by a score of 1 to
nothing. The gamfls now stand one
all.
The Fort George Theatre opened
its doors to the public last Monday
evening. First class motian pictures
are now being presented every night,
and matinees are being arranged for
several afternoons during, the week.
The big theatre was thrown open
last night free to girls and children. Bananas were given away to
all and sundry by Mr. M. C. Burr, a
real estate operator. The kids had
the time of their young lives according to all accounts, and, in the
immortal language of the society reporter "a very enjoyable time was
had."
A benefit performance has been arranged for tomorrow night the proceeds of which will be devoted to the
Fire Department here. The show will
commence after church hours.
The company operating the big
theatre are mailing extensive improvements to the building and to
the equipment. A new Powers picture machine will be installed during
the coming wedk, and a piano will
be installed.
Mr. Charles Miller, the well known
Toronto lawyer, who controls the
British Columbia Express Company,
accompanied by Mr. Willis J. West,
manager of the company, were amongst the arrivals here this week.
Mr. Miller's present visit was not
to do with his interests in the B. C.
Express Company so much as to
look into matters in connection with
his interest in the Prince George
townsite. Mr. Miller, together with
associates in the east, is the owner
of 200 acres of land included in the
boundary of the Prince George town-
site. Mr. Miller's holdings are located in the south easterly portion
of the townsite, and are bounded by
Patricia lAvenne on the north, by
the Fraser river on the east, by the
Hudson's Bay Company's land on
the south, and by Chatham Street
and Connaught Park on the west.
The land above described, held by
Mr. Miller and his associates, has
not as ytlt been offered for sale. To
The Herald Mr. Miller stated that
he was now making arrangements to
place this property on the market,
and further information upon this
matter was promised to The Herald
at a later date.
The Miller holdings comprise some
of the choicest property in the town-
site of Prince George. We have always
maintained that the eastern end ot
the old Indian reserve was the best
portion of the area which it comprised. The land on which the Indians built their village a hundred
years or so ago was chosen by them
owing to the natural topographical
advantages of the site. In the opinion of The Herald this land will bring
large figures when offered to the
investing public.
Asked regarding the intentions of
the British Columbia Express Company owing to ..he loss of the mail
contract, Mr. Miller stated that the
perfected arrangements made by Manager West would be utilized to their
fullest extent in the carrying of express and passengers on the Cariboo
road.
Mr. West, in whose, hands the big
job of managing the system of the
British Columbia Express Company
has been so capably attended to for
some years, stated to The Herald
that the company would run their
transportation service on a regular
schedule as formerly. They have expended huge sums of money in equipping their line for the winter service,
he said, and now that the mail service was no longer the most important _ factor in the transportation
scheme, the "B. X." would utilize
Its large equipment and splendid organization for the transportation of
passengers and express alone.
latitude, near which the Lawrence family, residents in the
district since 1896, this season
cut 300 acres of wheat, which
averaged more than 18 bushels
the acre. The experimental farm,
it is reported, is making satisfactory progress,

settled and developed rapidly,"
Melville said on returning to this
city, "and the pioneers predict
big things with the coming of

NEW THEATRE ON HAMILTON
"Dreamland" is the name of a new
theatre which opened its doors this
week on Hamilton Avenue. The new
and cozy little picture house has
been built by Mr. George Adams,
formerly connected with the Edison
Theatre on Third Street. Mr. Adams runs his theatre direct from tho
city light supplied by the new power
company. The Dreamland Theatre
building also contains the Mission
confectionery parlors, which have
been entirely remodelled,
The grain crop of the three prairie
provinces this year will, it is estimated,
put over $228,000,000 into the pockets
of the farmers. British Columbia is
expected to benefit largely from the
handling of future grain irops «ince
the completion of the Panama Canal
will bring them to the Pacific Coast for
shipment to Europe.
One of the biggest dry docks in
America to handle the large amount of
slurping that will visit that port is to
be built this winter at Prince Rupert.
Steel will arrive and work will be be-
gu- in November.
Track-laying on the main line
of the G.T.P. is proceeding towards Prince George at a rapid
rate, according to news from
Prince Rupert.
It is reported that steel is now
at mile 1200 from Winnipeg-on
the eastern side. A short check
was received at mile 1190, where
the railway, for the second time,
crosses the Fraser rive-. Track-
laying was held up for a short
time while the steel bridge across
the Fraser was completed. This
obstacle has been successfully
passed, and the track-laying
machines are pushing steadily
forward.
The Fraser river is crossed for
the third time about forty miles
west of the second crossing, but
the bridge at that point will not
be allowed to further delay the
laying of steel, a temporary
trestle having been erected to get
the steel across the. river. Towards the end of December the
tracks are expected into Prince
George.

Advertiiiig Rittl on Application
THE reassuring statements given out this week by the
officials of the British Columbia Express Company
regarding their future service between Ashcroft and this
place prove that the change in the Cariboo mail contract
will in no wise interfere with the exhaustive plans of the
historical company for the transportation of passengers
and express throughout its system, and more particularly
between Ashcroft and South Fort George.
Owing to the fact that the new carriers, the Imperial
Express Company, received word that their contract was
accepted before they had opportunity to adequately provide for fie organized service which they have to accomplish immediately, the means of passenger traffic would
be seriously impeded if the transfer of the mail contract
had affected the operation of the British Columbia Express Company's stages and steamboats.
As it turns out, however, the old "B. X." company
will be in a better position than ever before to handle
the passenger and express business along the Cariboo
road, and the Imperial Express Company will presumably
devote themselves to the carrying of the mail according
to their contract until they have their service organized
upon the lines they wish it to operate upon.
And so Cariboo, old and new, will now have the benefit
of two companies operating upon the Cariboo road and
its tributaries as common carriers. The mail contract is
a precise and exacting document, open for public, inspection, the terms of which must, of course, be complied
with to the letter, and as the people's mail is the "essence of the agreement" the contractors will doubtless
place their transportation system upon reliable and consistent schedule.
THE movement for "blue sky" legislation which originated in Kansas a short while back is making rapid
progress in Canada. It is rapidly being borne in upon
the minds of the legitimate business men of this country
that such laws should exist in every province. The
phrase originated with a newspaper writer who satirized
fake real estate boomsters as men who were selling nothing but "blue sky," and demanded legislation for their
suppression. The phrase caught on like wildfire, and by
its aptness has brought home the whole situation to the
minds of victimized communities. Saturday Night long
ago declared war on the "blue sky" experts infesting the
West; and its campaign has borne excellent fruit. Alberta already has in the form of its new company laws,
and in its measures for protecting the purchaser of vacant
land, some excellent "blue sky" legislation. Now the
same movement has taken hold very strongly in British
Columbia, and meetings have been held at various points
demanding that the McBride administration take action.
One particularly strong resolution was recently passed
by the Cranbrook District Conservative Association.
Ontario already has a very good basis for such legislation
in her company statutes, but needs more effective machinery to put the screws on the fake promoter. While
there is much yet to be done, it is gratifying to note that
the necessity for such laws has genuinely seized the
minds of the people at large.—Toronto Saturday Night.
]\TEW British Columbia may be described as that area
which lies in a belt across the province between a
line drawn from Yellowhead Pass due west to the Coast,
and another drawn from the head of Portland Canal due
east to the eastern boundary of the province. It is approximately 200 miles wide from north to south, and
measures approximately 400 miles from east to west.
Its area is, therefore, about 80,000 square miles. It is
not far from being twice as large as the three maritime
provinces. This is, of course, a mere arbitrary limitation, and is adopted simply for convenience of description. The province extends some 300 miles further
north, and south of the assumed southern] line and between it and the Canadian Pacific Railway there is a belt
of land averaging upwards of 150 miles in width. But
the area selected for description under the name of New
British Columbia is that through the centre of which the
middle part of the Grand Trunk Pacific in this province
runs. At its entrance into the province this railway is
at the southeastern corner of this area; when it reaches
Hazelton it is only some 50 miles south of the northern
■unit of it. Within the limits above described there is
ikely to be witnessed within the next few years an exceptional amount of development.-Victoria Colonist

A Mysterious
Man	
A few nights ago a gentleman
entered our store wearing a pray
suit, a slouch hat and spoke with a
foreign accent.
His appearance seemed to indicate
a peculiar intelligence, and he impressed us of having seemed more
prosperous days, but as though adversity had crossed his path making
it necessary for him to battle for a
livelihood with the more coarser
elements.
He stood for a few moments
fumbling with a pair of pants, then
suddenly disappeared, and so did the
pants.
We do not wish to insinuate that
he stole the pants, but simply take
it that on account of the great rush
of business in oui store that he was
neglected, became impatient, or
perhaps on account of temporary
embarrassment he carried them
away intending at some future date
to return and settle.
Of course, we have several hundred pairs just like the pair that
went missing, but the loss of the
pair knocks the profits.
But he did not get at our hats,
underwear, blankets, mackinaws,
up shirts or shoes. We can, therefore, afford to cut on these lines.
Drop in and see us open up our fall
clothing. We have just placed on
exhibition as exhibit A for the week,
two cords of blankets, one cord of
mackinaws, one cord of Stanfield's
underwear, half cord of ladies'
coats, and a cord and a half of sox.
Our hats, nails, roofing and building paper we haven't measured yet,
but will announce their cubical contents later on.
Our prices are infallible.

The work of building grade on this last

"Canyon cats"  is  the  name given
in  the  Grand  Trunk     Pacific    construction   camps   for   the    daredevils
along the upper Fraser who pilot scows
laden with railroad supplies   through
the canyon.    To be  a   cat  one must
have nerve, plus.    No self-respecting
casualty   company would  insure their
lives for a penny. Daily they stare into
the bright eyes of danger.    Time and
again, until the tale became monotonous from the telling,  the scows have
been broken to bits in the rapids and
their freight and the men who piloted
them cover the bottom of the river.
Water is now low in the Fraser and
workmen are now salvaging the freight
lost earlier in the year.    Meanwhile
running the canyon goes on,   but with
the advance of the Grand Trunk Pacific
construction a safe way will soon replace the dangerous river.     The "canyon cats" who are lucky enough to
outguess the swift-running Fraser will
have big stakes to their credit, for they
will collect over $1000 each for every
month of the season.    Canyon Cache
will be shut down in another month.
Through it materials and supplies worth
many fortunes have passed during the
two seasons it has been operated.   The
Cache and its maintenance cost over
$150,000, but it was the only way to
handle construction so that the new
$ranscontinental could be pushed westward to the Pacific and finished on time.

How do we know that the Fort
Fraser district is suited for settlers?
How do we know that the Nechaco
Valley has the rich soil which you
claim for it? These are samples of the
questions which newcomers ask when
discussing the future of the Garden
Spot of Canada, and it is a feature of
Fort Fraser that these questions can be
answered promptly and with conviction.
No one who has traveled through that
desirable territory can fail to ba impressed with the magnificent vistas and
eminent suitability for agricultural
development. Governmeut reports,
private investigations, tourists and
pioneers all agree in the stacement
that the Nechaco Valley and its tributary districts comprise the hope of
British Columbia in placing this province in a self-supporting position as
regards the production of foodstuffs.
When one comes to think the matter
over, it does seem strange that a rich
country such as British Columbia should
have to import its meat from New
Zealand, its butter from the same country, its eggs from Holland, its bacon
and ham from the United States. But
we have been so busy in opening up our
country, in road building, in bridge
building, in railroad construction and
in lumbering and mining, that we lost
sight of the necessity for encouraging
agriculture as a staple industry of the
province. I can remember the time,
only a few years ago, when the Koote-
nay country was regarded purely as a
mining country. Some far-seeing spirits
talked of fruit-growing and were
laughed at, yet today the Kootenay
produces some of the finest apples that
one can wish for. This spirit is much
in evidence in the Fort Fraser district,
for the people who have settled there
know that they are in a section to
which the rest of the province must
turn for the supply of grain, vegetables and cattle. There are so many
fine districts available for settlement
that there is no reason why British
Columbia should not supply herself with
the necessaries of life as Fort Fraser
becomes settled.
One of the recognized works in the
new British Columbia is the "New
Garden of Canada," written by T. A.
Talbot, an English traveler, who recently journeyed through the northern
country. After he returned to London
he wrote a book, which gives very
vivid and life-like descriptions of the
northern valleys. Referring to the
Fort Fraser district he comments on
tha fine vegetables and general crops
which he saw raised on pioneer ranchers. Referring to a conversation he
had with one settler, Mr. Talbot
writes:
The astonishing part was that he
had not tilled the soil. This was just a
thick deposit of decayed vegetable
matter and alluvium, for in the distant
past his farm was at the bottom of a
large lake occupying the whole of the
depression known as the Nechaco Valley. This light, nourishing top soil
was so soft that one could plunge one's
arm up to the armpit without meeting
the subsoil. All that was necessary
was to make the drills, push the tubers
in with the fingers, bank up, and then
let them grow.
A little further on we came upon
another settement where about the
same acreage was under cultivation.
In this case the crops were of a more
varied character, coinciding very closely with an English kitchen garden or
mixed farm. The white turnips had
grown to an immense size, were beautifully solid and as palatable as any
English-grown root of this species.
The settler in these parts has certainly
one advantage over his British confrere, ho is not pestered with worms,
caterpillars and other plagues.

'v but it is believed that Judge
Svlor pi-esidirifir officer in the
Edmonton district court, established a precedent when he converted his big touring car into a
t room. Judge Taylor was
unable to get to Fort Saskatche-
"anto conduct the trial of Frank
Georgeson, but rather than cause
any unnecessary delay and inconvenience to the prisoner, he
an.anged to meet the latter on
the highway bordering the district The prisoner was taken
to th<' scene under escort of the
Royal North West Mounted Police, He pleaded guilty and was
sentenced then and there. Judge
Taylor was hurried back to the
city and presided at the opening
of the fall session of court. The
docket is unusually heavy this
term, which explains the trial
on the highway.
Alberta's Natural Gas.
Natural gas, piped from the
Vegreville district, 75 miles east
of here, can be delivered to consumers in Edmonton at nine
cents a thousand cubic feet, acceding to F. G. Clapp and L. G.
Huntley, gas experts, of Pittsburg, who have submitted an exhaustive report to the municipality. The town of Vegreville
already has 330,000 cubic feet
daily available. The experts also
visited several other districts,
including Pelican Falls, Wetaski-
win, Merinville, Tofield, Athabasca, all of which are reported
tu possess merit. Vegreville is
the most promising, It is estimated that gas from the first
named would cost from 24 to 45
cents a thousand feet, on account
of the distance to be covered by
the pipe line. Mayor William
Short, who is also chairman of
the board of commissioners, has
been delegated to submit recommendations to the city council.
The pipe line and plant is estimated to cost about $3,850,000.

Many people beileve that a newspaper falls altogether without wow
or concerted action or plan. Rev, McLeod, a Presbyterian minister at
Pasadena Cal., was of that opinion,
and asked to be allowed to edit an
edition of tbe Pasadena Star. The
editor gladly accepted the opportunity to go fishing and the minister
undertook his duties iu the newspaper office. This is how he felt when
he found himself at the end of his
task, which it must be said, had
been done quite creditably.
"My time is almost up; I pen this
last line; my hand is paralyzed; my
brain is befuddled and I am free to
confess that I am right glad to vacate the holy spot. Such rush and
riot and dissaray. Such a jumble of
potpourri; it strikes me as the effort
to bring order out of chaos, and to
do it lightning quick.
"I am reminded of the memorable
words, 'The earth was without form
nnd void, and darkness was upon the
face of the waters." Never shall I
criticise newspaper men more. I shall
pray for them. They will have my
heart's forbearance henceforth and
forever. They are the hardest worked,
workers on this weary old world of
ours."—Gulf Courant. Texas.
Dr. H. W. Hill, head of the Institute of Public Health, London,
Ont, said in a public address at
the Edmonton Canadian Club that
if persons suffering from cancer
were treated with ordinary care
during the early stages of the
disease, the death rate would be
reduced fully 50 per cent. He
declared also that measles, usually treated as a joke, is one of
the most deadly diseases in its
results. "Not less than 90 per
cent, of the population of the
North American continent, he
added, "have suffered from an
attack of measles at one time or
other, and in most cases some
trace is left in the body. The
time has come to educate the
public and to treat measles as
one of the deadliest diseases.
We can. no longer treat this
malady as a joke, as we have in
the past, and it is in the interest
of public health to begin the
movement without delay."
