COUNTRY NOT EXAGGERATED
PREMIER   McBRIDE   GIVES   OUT   STATEMENT  REGARDING  RECENT   VISIT
TO  THIS   SECTION.
SGUm FORT GEORGE, B. C, SEPTEMBER 10, 1910.
Premier McBride, interviewed in Vancouver on
his return from this section, stated that: "The reports concerning the fertility and tremendous possibilities of the Fraver river country are not exaggerated one-iota." The Premier praised the
vastly improved transportation methods on the
Cariboo road, and on the Fraser river. Travelling
conditions were he said "equally as good and comfortable as in either Vancouver or Victoria."
Remarking on the healthy rivalry between this
town and the Fort George townsite Hon. Mr. McBride said there was bound to be a large town here
as it is more than likely that the railroad will
establish a divisional point which will inevitably
create a busy centre.
When asked as to the location of the Government offices, the Premier stated that the site had
not yet been chosen but that a decision might be
j expected at an early date.
Hon. Mr. McBride seems to be thoroughly satisfied with the results of his trip to this section, and
[has repeatedly intimated that the Government will
! shortly undertake measures of a progressive
I nature to assist in every possible manner within
[their power the greater development of the North-
Jem Interior.
FIRST SCHOOL OPENS
FIRST SCHOOL IN FORT GEORGE SECTION
OPENS ITS DOORS AT SOUTH
FORT GEORGE.
On Monday last the first Government school
opened its doors to the children of this section, and
the fact that sixteen names were entered on the
roll during the first day of its existance shows how
great was the necessity of such an institution here.
The advent of this school provides one more
primal necessities of a young city. Without educational advantages for children surely no town
can be considered to be worthy of the name, and
the fact that South Fort George now boasts of a
school which is well attended and admirably presided over both by the principal and the board of
trustees give this place a vastly added importance
in the estimation of those families which are settling here, and of the many more to come.
The school is temporarily in charge of Mr. Cos-
grave, a graduate of Princeton University, who
volunteered to fill the vacancy until a permanent
teacher could be engaged rather than see the
opening date delayed.
The board of trustees recently appointed is composed of Mr. A. G. Hamilton, Secretary; Mr. James
Cowie, and Joseph Boyer, all pioneers of this section. The building at present in use for the school
is on Fourth street, and is owned by Mr. Wiggins,
of the Northern Development Company here. A
proper school house will be built for permanent
'use.
W. J. Mackay, of Vancouver, who ran the Tribune here after John Houston had contracted his
fatal illness until that paper was purchased by the
Natural Resources Security Company, leaves Vancouver for this point on Tuesday, having accepted
a position on the Herald.
In the reception of the initial number of the
Herald by our contemporaries we have noted many
and divers opinions. The Vancouver Province
natters us by refering to this paper as "a bright.
vigorous paper." The "Sunset" of the same city
hands us a lemon on page one by suggesting paregoric as an antidote for wind on the stomach.
The Journal in Ashcroft compliments the "youthful" editor on his "latest," and so on with boquets
and lemons galore. We proffer thanks for the
floral donations the lemon givers will receive
limes shortly, The only real objection to these
criticisms we have to offer is the constant reference by publishers who happen to be have personally acqainted with the editor of this paper, to
his age. Because a man does not carry a superfluity
of flesh or grow long wooly whiskers some of our
antiquated brother journalists regard his opinions
too lightly.
A discovery of gold bearing quartz and alluvial
gold has been made on a creek north of here by a
man named McKenzie. At present only the most
meagre details are forthcoming as the locator will
not give out any information until receiving the
results of his assays.

SUNSET AND NIGHT
"SATURDAY  SUNSET" AND   "SATURDAY
NIGHT"   CONTINUE TO  VENTILATE
THEIR V1EWS.OF FORT GEORGE.
Toronto Saturday Night prints a pithy criticism
on the Vancouver Saturday Sunset's attempt to
bolster up the Natural Resources Security Company's townsite proposition on the Nechaco river,
which quite disconcerts the complacent and positive printed opinions of''Bruce," editor of the
Sunset.
We have already expressed "our opinions regarding "Bruce's" articles on Fort George, but for the
benefit of our new readers we reiterate some of our
remarks which are printed to counteract the extraordinary advertising compaign conducted by the
Natural Resources Security Company.
This company have a proposition which appears
to be technically legitimate •■- they can give good
title to every twenty-five foot lot on their thousand
odd acres of townsite lands*- but is the advertising
department of this concern-'which attracts to their
proposition the criticisms which are always based
solely on the misrepresentations they print.
This advertising department, judging from the
literature they issue, is composed of an "all star
cast." Its publicity experts lightly work wonderful changes in the topography of the Indian reserve to suit the location of the particular property
they are exploiting along its western boundary,
changing the location of the G. T. P. across it in a
most casual manner, placing it sometimes on a
long trestle at the extreme northern end of the reserve and in other instances crossing it near its
southern end for the benefit of "Central Fort
George," whilst the railroad station, which has
likewise undergone a long period of uncertainty of
location, has now been settled by some thoughtful
ad writer at the north-east corner of the Fort
George townsite,
We have shown by statistics that the only town-
site at this point today where any considerable
number of independent business men have settled
and are building is at South Fort George on the
Fraser river.
Bruce was perfectly aware of this fact, when he
printed an article calculated to strengthen the
hand of the townsite people when trying to retain
the site for the Government offices which were
awarded to their townsite by an assistant in the
Government agent's office, but which were later
transferred to South Fort George by the Government agent personally after he had consulted the
people regarding their wishes in the matter.
Toronto Saturday Night has entered the arena
against the Natural Resuorces Security Company's
townsites almost from their inception. That paper
in the issue we refer to quotes excerpts from a report of the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway Company,
which proves many of the statements in the town-
site company's advertisements to be extravagent
misrepresentations without any basis of truth
whatsoever. .
And so we have a spectacle of two largely circulated and influential weekly journals fighting,
one for, the other against a townsite proposition at
Fort George. We have detected in the attacking
journal errors of detail which are due to lack of
close touch with the local situation and of the journal defending the issue we have written at length
to show that the editor, "Bruce," is lighting for a
rich corporation against the interests of the public
here.
The Herald does not care a red cent what becomes of the Natural Resources' townsites. Our
only advice to intending purchasers is to investigate personally. We merely wish to keep the
name of South Fort George townsite, where the
business interests of the Fort George of today are,
clear of the mire which contamination with a site
that is being attacked in the public press as a
"wild cat"- whether it is or not will drag it if
the local situation is not fully explained.
South Fort George is a small townsite, containing only 147 acres in all, but what it lacks in
quantity it makes up in natural advantages which
the public are not slow to recognize. A strange
contrast to its enormous, but lethargic neighbor
a townsite bisected by fifty miles of "streets" with
the original name of the old settlement of Fort
George corralled by legal proceedure and tacked
onto it as an "advertising bulge," and yet, which
is unable to compare with this place for population, business houses on the ground, or in natural
advantages.
RIVER IMPROVEMENTS NEEDED
ATTENTION OF FEDERAL AUTHORITIES IS
BEING CALLED TO MUCH NEEDED
IMPROVEMENTS.
Premier McBride has intimated his intention of
drawing the attention of the Ottawa authorities
to the mu.;'h needed improvements required to aid
navigation in the Fort George canyon.
The Victoria Colonist last week devoted a whole
column to editorial comment on this subject. Mr.
Lugrin, the Colonist's editor, during his recent
visit t(5 'this section with Premier McBride's party,
was able to realize the situation from personal
observation. The Colonist draws attention to the
constant danger of damage or destruction to boats
when passing through this canyon, and shows that
the aggregated value of the steamboats now plying on this river is in the neighborhood of $250,000,
also pointing out that two of the boats from this
valuable fleet are now "hors de combat" from their
battle with this menance to life and property.
The writer has passed through the Fort George
canyon in the winter, and has seen the obstructing
reef in the eastern channel standing high and clear
of the ice. Rock men with steel and powder could
remove this reef in sixty days.
The Fort George Canyon marks the very en-
tarance into the Fort George district itself. It is
rather a rude surprise to our many visitors from
the world's centres of population to be crowded to
the after end of a steamboat in order that the stern
wheel may take a greater dip, and from there to
watch the boat fighting its way against the mightiest forces of nature through narrow tortuous channels lined by precipitous rock shores; after travellers have read of the wonderful Fraser river waterway system navagabie for one thousand miles.
The blowing out of the reef in the eastern channel would give a straight deep-water channel for
steamboats at any stage of the water. No other work
would, we believe, be necessary. The writer has
passed through this channel at the extremes of
both high and low water and has observed that
were this obstruction removed much water now
deviated through the others would flow through
the eastern channel which is now too narrow to
give pssage to more than about fifty per cent of
the water passing through the canyon.
The Minister of Works at Ottawa will doubtless
turn his attention to this pressing matter, now
that the powers that be are commenting so freely
upon the negligencies of his department in regard
to this district.
Martin Burrell, member for this district, has, we
honestly believe, done his utmost to have this work
done, but Mr. Burrell, although one of the most
fluent speakers in the Dominion House, is "on the
wrong side," consequently there is "not much
doin'."
It is time that the Hon. Mr. Pugsley initiated a
movement to clear the Fraser river of obstructions
to navigation, not only in the Fort George canyon,
but from Soda Creek to Tete Jaune Cache. In two
years more the Grand canyon, one hundred miles
north of this point, will be navigated as frequently
as the Fort George canyon is today, but with a
Kreater amount of risk, This work should be carried out during the coming winter and the appropriations should be large enough to do the work
thoroughly and well.
Neil Gething, a well known land and timber
owner, who has operated in Cariboo and the Peace
river country for the past seven years arrived from
the Stewart river country last week and left Van-
cover on Monday. Mr. Gething is applying for
permission to prospect for coal and petroleum on a
large tract of land on Peace river.
Excellent progress is being made on the Northern Hotel here. Al. Johnson expects it to open for
business on the first of the month. The building
does great credit to this town, and when completed it will rank amongst the finest hotels in the
interior of British Columbia.
Four young men from New York state, recent
graduates of Princeton university who have been
looking over the townsite situation here with a
view to investment and residence, have decided
that South Fort George is the centre of gravitation in this section and have settled here. They
intend to enter into business ventures. Htm litUMit KttiRLU

Tribune is an advertising agent
from Minneapolis who we are informed handles the greater part
of the wonderfully exaggerated
advertising of the Natural Resources Security Company, Surely a most capable editor for the
"Graveyard Wail." Some of the
extraordinary deviations from a
newspaper's usual advertising
methods are doubtless due to this
promoter of publicity. Sometime ago the Tribune issued a
wonderful supplement printed in
red ink on bond paper advertising the "magnificent" hotel on
the Fort George townsite, quite
contrary to Section 45, governing
the transport of second-class matter through the Canadian mails.
The individual who is generally
credited with the epoch-making
editorials in the "Graveyard
