TYPHOID FEVER
UNREPORTED
An Outbreak Would be Serious
Owing to Lack of Hospital
Accommodation.
Typhoid fever has broken out here,
,„d according to  the   views of  some
authorities there is some danger of an
epidemic Several cases have been relied to local doctors who have a
number of patients that are affected
with the malady. '
Dr fj, B. Lazier, the medical health
officer, interviewed by The Herald,
would have little to say upon the subject. He attributes the cases presented to the contamination of the river
waters, and states that if proper care
is used'there need be little fear of any
•serious outbreak. The doctor advises
the boiling of all water for drinking
purposes and keeping dies out of the
houses as much as possible by the use
of netting antl screen doors. All rubbish should be removed to the dumping
ground selected, and chloride of lime
or other disinfectant should be used
freely about places where infection is
liable to originate.
It is impossible to ascertain whether
the few cases reported locally are isolated, or whether there has been any
outbreak up the line, as the medical
health oflicer has received no reports
[rum the physicians along the construction zone.
All cases of typhoid or other virulent
diseases, should be reported immediately, and failure to report such cases
should be punished, as it is impossible
to guard against infection as successfully withuut knowledge of an outbreak
as it would be if the matter was generally known. At Wolf Creek, just
east of the Yellowhead Pass, we were
informed thut a serious outbreak of
typhoid resulted in the death of numbers of laborers when the line was passing through that section, but no report
of the matter ever reached the "outside."
There is little or no accommodation
for patients here. The only hospital
in the diatrict, at Fort George, has apparently been turned over by the
board of directors to the railroad contractors. This hospital receives government support, and we cannot understand why the railroad people should be
allowed to use it when they collect tbe
sum of $1.00 a month from each of
their thousands of laborers for medical and hospital attention. The government is supposed to pay the sum of
$1.00 a day for patientB in the hospital.
The lack of a hospital here may some
day be keenly felt. The people of this
city have always proclaimed themselves
rawly to support such an institution,
wn though it would doubtless be a
drain upon them, for these hospitals
seldom pay their running expenses.
Nothing has yet been done regarding the location of a permanent dumping ground here for the garbage of the
Clt>'* A location should be selected in
the government reserve behind the
'ownsite urea here, and this chosen
•rea should undoubtedly be given for
•he purpose.
The condition of the river front since
•he contractors commenced to land
their acows along the shores is not
healthy, These scows, sweeping rot-
to* material Into the river water,
should not bu allowed to line the shores
empty.
Strumous steps should be taken in

OFjOREST FIRES
Frequent Rains of Summer Season Have Minimized Danger
to Timber.
A remarkable absence of serious forest lires in British Columbia continues
to be the feature of the present summer from the standpoint of the Forestry Branch of the Provincial Government. The latest reports are as follows :
Nelson-Weather conditions showery
followed by dry, warm spell. The
Great Northern reports no fires. The
Canadian Pacific reports a lire on July
18th started by engine and extinguished by railway patrol. The fire occurred
at Nine Mile Point on Rossland to Nelson division.
Kamloops-Rainfall here has been
light. Vegetation ia generally green
and moist and conditions safe. No fires
reported.
Vancouver—Hot weather now prevails here with slight breeze. No fires
reported.'
Prince Rupert-Heavy rains and cool,
light winds have been experienced here.
No danger of fire in any section.
Vernon-Hot and breezy, clear, with
occasional heavy showers. The vegetation is drying thus increasing the
danger of outbreaks. No fires are reported.
South Fort George—The vegetation
here is green with plentiful debris.
The situation is fairly safe. No permits for tires have been issued and no
fires have been reported. If present
weather continues extra precautions
may   become necessary.
Island District—Soil is fairly moist
and vegetation green except on southern slopes. Several small fires and two
large ones, all in the vicinity of Victoria. One of the large ones Was in
swamp, Lost Lake road, the other at
Mill Mountain, Esquimault, where 75
cords of wood were I unit. Fifty men
were engaged fighting this outbreak,
the cost being $75.
Lillooet-Dry weather now prevails,
and vegetation is getting dry.
Cranbrook—Dry, with hot, light
winds. Several small fires reported.
One at McGillivary may cost $50. Details not yet received.
Tete Jaune—Weather conditions very
dry and hot.   No fires,
Hazelton-Weather coot and cloudy
with showers.   No fires.

REQUESTING SPECIAL
LEGISLATION
People of  Hammondville  Send
Emissary to Victoria on Incorporation Business.
A meuting was held this week in
the "other town" at which certain
ot the Fort George citizens brought
into being a movement to apply for
special legislation to permit them to
proceed with a scheme of municipal
incorporation which would include
all the townsite areas under their
one municipality.
The moagre reports which we have
ot the meeting show that the Fort
George people have despatched to
Victoria a representative in the person of Mr. H. A. Carney, to proceed with the work.
As we understand the movement,
the Fort George people wish to embrace all the townsites in thtfir incorporation scheme, under the common head of Fort Georgo.
Apparently the fact that South
Fort George has completed a long
and expensive campaign to secure
municipal incorporation under the
act, did not enter into the calculations of the meeting at all.
CARIBOO-MINING WILL LOCATE
SHOWS DEVELOPMENT      FRENCH CANADIANS
Annual Report Shows Encouraging Output and Much Development Under Way.
The annual report of the minister
of mines for 1912, which has just
been published, gives some interesting data regarding tho mining development of Cariboo during the
past year. The only mines vigorously
worked last season were the Forest
Rose on Williams Creek; Wucho Oro
and Wyoming claims ou Stout's
Gulch, and tbe Lowhee, on Lowhee
Creek. These properties are under the
direction of John Hopp, and have
been successfully operated by him for
a number of years . Their output last
jyear was about $200,000. On the
Forest Rose tbe work was mostly
in the nature of construction. Cn
the- Mucho Oro rich gravel was
struck. On the Lowhee the improved
water storage gave better hydraulic*
!king facilitiea than formerly and
good results were reported.  Payable
Agent Now Here Seeking Land
for Large Number of Residents of Quebec.
Among the interesting visitors here
this week must be mentioned Mr. G.
C. Paulin, the only repatriation agent
for the Canadian West and more especially for British Columbia. Mr.
Paulin's mission in this section is to
spy out ihe land with a view to colonizing large tracts of pre-emption areas
with those of the French Canadian citizens who have settled in the eastern
United States.
Mr. Paulin, himself a French Canadian, is employed to a certfin extent
by the Federal government at Ottawa.
He explained to The Herald that his
work of 'repatriation amongst the
French Canadians in the United States
was most successful, and that these
people were now looking towards the
new and wonderful section of British
Columbia lying north of 53 for a world
to which they might migrate.

An advice received from Smithers,
an important divisional point on the
G.T.P. in the Bulkley Valley, west
of here, states that a big mining
development is assured that section
now that the, railroad has reached
there and mining machinery may be
shipped in. Col, R. G. Steele has arrived at Smithers for a visit to the
properties of the Hudson Bay Mining
Company, in which he is heavily interested, located five miles from that
point.
The company has made payment of
$100,000 to thc original locators of
the mine and has surveyed thc site
for the smelter. Three shifts of men
are nt work developing the property.

A telegraphic message received at.
Victoria deals with tho recently reported rich strike in tbe Yukon territory.
It was forwarded from Dawson City by
the "citizens' committee on routes."
evidently with the desire that it be
published for the public information.
The message states that the latest
reports of the new diggings at the head
of White River are very encouragim..
A large Yukon River steamer has returned from the mouth of the Donjek
River, and two smaller steamers are
establishing a service between the
mouth of the Donjek and Snag, over
one hundred miles up the White River,
leaving about sixty-five milcs overland to the heart of the diggings a
route practically free from swamp
and of very easy grade. Thomas
O'Brien, an old sourdough, is leaving for the mouth of the Donjek
River to establish a steam-heated
hotel and store, and many large outfits are leaving on every steamer,
the steamers leaving every few days.
The only practical summer and winter trail, it is stated, is via the
White River, and old Yukon prospectors recommend this route. The government, the message states, is contemplating commencing immediately
on the improvement of the trail.

Merton H. Stickle, a veteran prospector, has located a rich gold-bearing
ledge in the wilds of the Canadian
Rockies, 80 miles northwest of Laurier
Pass near the confluence of the Inge-
nika and 'he Finlay rivers. "I picked
around for more than two years in the
mountain wilderness," Mr. Stickels
said in Edmonton on returning from
Duluth, where he bought two stamp
mills, "and then I made the big
strike." The stamp mills will be sent
to Athabasca and Peace Rivers. From
there they wiil be packed along the
Ottertail River to destination. Mr.
Stickle has hopes of having the stamps
falling eaily in December.
AN  ILLUSTRATION.
To illustrate the relative importance of the townsites
of Fort George and South Fort George many statistics
might be quoted and deadly parallels between the cities
drawn which would all prove the fact that our much-
advertised neighboring city cannot compare with South
Fort George as a business proposition.    The following
statistics, gleaned by The Herald from the records at
the local Government Agency, serve to illustratejnost
forcibly this argument:

ated their plant on old South Wales
ground near Van Winkle. Hydraulie-s-
ing was also carried on at the Cooper Creek Mining Company's property
on Sugar Creek, at China Creek Nugget Gulch, and the old Waverly property. The West Canadian Deep Leads
Ltd., continued    their sinking operations.  On Pleasant Valley T.  Dickson did some drilling with a view to

H. Carmichael, assistant provin-
I cial mineralogist, went in September
i to Tete Jaune Cache to report on
the mica claims staked in the eastern portion of the Cariboo mining
division, but as the, claims on which j
! mest development work has been
| done are at an elevation of over
8000 feet, he was unable to reach
them on account of the snow. It is
now close on twenty years since the
first locations for mica were staked
here, and shipments were made by
pack train by way of the North
Thompson River to Kamloops. The
mica is of the muscovite variety,
and sheets 8 inches by 10 inches
square have been taken out. It occurs in pegmatite dykes. The lignite
is reported over a large area and it
is of excellent quality, so that the
operation of some of these properties on the opening of the G.T.P.
Railway seems probable.
The Quesnel Hydraulic. Gold
Mining Company operated its plant
but without successful results, as the
richer runs of gold, which the management expected to strike, did not
materialize. The Morehead Mining
Company, with head oflice at Calgary, installed a hydraulic plant for
this season's operations, the location
being Morehaad Creek. The Watertight Dipper Dredge and Mining Co.,
another Calgary promotion, is installing a drudging plant under its
patents on Seven Mile Creek. The
dredge was built at Seattle, under
the supervision of F. Satchell Olame
of the B. C. Drilling & Dredging Co.
of Vancouver. On Spanish Creek John
Hopp had a crew of twenty men employed in hydraulicking the fround
held by  the   Guggenheims,   and for-
bilities of the country, and claims that
the land over which he has traveled is
of a rich and very productive nature.

Thrilling Adventure of
"Sandbar Slim."
Grand Canyon, August Ilth.—
There is some talk of building a
road from Roy Spurr's Canyon stopping place at the immediate head of
the Upper Canyon to the road now
connecting the upper and lower warehouses, for portage purposes. This
would cut off a good half the haul
round the. upper canyon and at the
rate the water is falling portaging
will soon become necessary for a
good portion of the cargo on the
heavily loaded boats.
Canyon pilots are taking an average of 15 scows through the canyon
per day. Last Wednesday the Foley
Bros., Welch & Stewart pilots took
15 scows through the canyon hetween 7 a.m. and 2 p.m. with an
hour taken for dinner. This is the
best record for quick work to date.
A. H. Dieber, butter known as
"Sand bar Slim" had quite a narrow
escape last Thursday while taking
one of Bates and Rogc.rs scows
through the canyon. One of the
sweeps broke near Green's Rock and
i the scow struck with such force that
the deck was completely torn off and
thrown into the worst part of the
current with Slim on it. Fortunately
the scow and the wrecked deck came
, together again in a few seconds nnd
I Slim jumped aboard again making
Ithe rest of the trip in safety.

Devoted to  the  Interests of the  Fort George District and  the  Northern
Interior of British Columbia.
Suliscriiilion $100 a Ycat iu Alliance

THE presumption of some men—like the grace of God-
passeth all understanding-. In another column we
have written of the strange attitude of certain Fort
George interests in connection with their-pi'oposcd scheme
of absorbing this and other valuable townsite properties
in an unwieldy, immature and half-baked municipal incorporation scheme, by which they hope to weld together
their tottering townsites with the more valuable properties to the east of them, and cling to the future use of
the name "Fort George" which, having been misused for
some years past, is now to be discarded by the Grand
Trunk Pacific railway in favor of their name "Prince
George."
Never, in the course of our existence, have we witnessed a more flagrant demonstration by the "interests" to
secure special privileges to meet the demands of their
own operations without regard for public sentiment or
for reasonable objections in the matter. They held their
stealthy meeting, discussing the proposal to deal with the
large majority of interests whose ideas are diametrically
opposed to theirs on the subject, engineered the scheme
outlined, and sent to Victoria their representative, a man
who has recently been erroneously referred to as "a leading Conservative," to lay the foundations of their scheme.
South Fort George has applied for municipal incorporation under the Act made and provided for such an application. The area to be included in the incorporation as
applied for by the people of this community consists only
of District Lots 933 and 934, or the actual townsite area
of South Fort George. The reason for applying in this
manner was in order that the development of this city
might be concentrated in the proper area for its self-advancement and for the careful control of its own affairs
without entering into a scheme of incorporation embracing any undeveloped properties.
This application of South Fort George in the matter is
now before the government. The papers are filed with
the deputy attorney-general and the letter of the law has
been successfully complied with by the incorporators. No
special privileges have been asked for and none are expected. The time has arrived when the affairs of this
city can better be handled by the people here than by the
government at Victoria, and the people have asked the
government to allow them to conduct these affairs.
Under the most recent amendments to the Municipal
Incorporation Act the Lieutenant-Governor in Council has
the right to vary the proposed boundaries or extent of a
municipality in such wise as may be considered expedient.
The idea of the people behind the municipal incorporation
movement here is to eventually form a part of future
municipalities to the north. The Governor-in-Council will
not interfere with our boundaries.
The various members of the government at Victoria
who are to be approached upon the subject of the "special
legislation" which the Fort George interests require for
the furtherance of their gobbling-up scheme, will doubtless treat the emissary of these interests with polite indifference. The purpose of the foregoing is to notify all
parties that The Herald is "wise" to their latest scheme
and that we are girding on shield and buckler to prevent
any nervy interference with our own affairs by outside
subdivisions, their promoters or hangers-on.
ACCORDING to the Committee of the National Civic
Federation which has been investigating the matter
for some months, low wages are not the most prolific
cause of vice. Pangs of hunger do not, as a rule, drive
girls to lives of shame. While it may be true that in
certain industries wages that would enable a girl to live
in comfort are not paid, it is not true, according to the
federation, that these industries contribute an unduly
large number to the number of fallen. Individual cases
are too frequent of young women who have tastes that
their small wages cannot gratify taking other means to
increase their incomes, but in the great majority of cases
girls go wrong for reasons not connected with their earning powers. After they have entered upon a life of vice
it is not unnatural that they should attempt to justify
themselves, and endeavor to prove that they were the
victims of economic circumstances. The investigators
find that girls who receive a careful Christian training at
home are able to weather the storms of financial adversity without throwing honor overboard.-Toronto Mail

A Broad Invitation
Last fall a rumor was spread
broadcast that food supplies were
short in South Fort George and that
great hunger and destitution would
prevail before spring, which was to
a certain extent true on account of
our extreme isolation, and the early
closing of navigation, causing many
of our citizens to leave for the winter, and causing complete stagnation in the influx of settlers arriving
here.
We would like to state here that
the KENNEDY-BLAIR CO., have
taken due precaution against similar
conditions this year.
Since the opening of navigation
we have imported one thousand tons
of merchandise.
We have a thousand tons more to
arrive here before the closing season.
The transit of this vast tonnage is
in ths hands of'"our famous scow-
men, Admiral Geo. Williams, R.
Alexander and W. McLaren.
We therefore issue a cordial invitation to our citizens to remain here.
We also extend this invitation to
people from all parts of the world
who anticipate a trip to FortGeorge
either for business put-poses or investment, to come and bring along
your friends.
That the KENNEDY-BLAIR CO.
will Feed you, Clothe you,
Furnish your House, give
you maximum values and
minimum prices.

In Spite of the money scarcity

Canadian Pacific is only concerned to the extent of double-track-

hjle the i lanadian Northern and
the Grai . Trunk Pacific are hur-
wine their transcontinental lines
.i,. ■ to the coast.
' ;,,. a tivity in each case isdue
in pn small part to anxiety to be
ready before the opening of the
Panama canal. The completion
of that waterway may not produce a big increase in the Canadian Pacific ports at once, but the
general feeling is that it will,
and the railways running to the
coast want to be prepared to
handle their share. The double-
tracking of the C.P.R. is practically completed from Vancouver to Ruby Creek, a distance of
40 miles, The only exception is
the new bridge over the Pitt
river east of Coquitlam which
will not ho finished until next
year. It is intended to operate
a regular passenger schedule
early next month between here
and Ruby Creek, calling for the
use of both lines. An important
part of the C.P.R. improvement
program in this province is the
construction of the Rogers Pass j
tunnel. The plant for the work
is being assembled and the contract is to be completed within
42 months. This tunnel will reduce the grade over the mountains very materially.
A gap of only 38 miles now
separates construction gangs on
the route of the Canadian Northern working south from Alberta Summit and north from Kamloops respectively. Alberta
Summit is about 40 miles from
Tete Jaune Cache. Officials of
the C.N.R. are confident that the

matter upon the subject of commercial vice, however, failed to
touch upon certain phases of the
question which need some reference before the public are able
to judge of the rights and wrongs
of the situation, objectionable
though continued reference to
the subject must be.
In the ifirst place the fact has
been apparently overlooked that
the sudden frenzy of activity on
the part of the newspaper, the
women and the church at Fort
George to prevent the influx of
the fallen women into their midst
did not commence until these unfortunates had actually purchased properties and erected expensive houses in the middle of their
townsites,
This leads us to investigate the
matter and to place the facts of
the case before our readers in the
hope that the matter may serve
to illustrate certain remarks
passed upon the question hereunder.
It cannot reasonably be expected that the women who built the
houses on the Fort George town-
sites did ao without assurances
from some quarters that they
be "protected by influential interests.
Our investigations lead us to
the fact that not only was protection assured the women in the
ease, as we assumed, but actual
solicitation was made by business
interests of Fort George, and we
also believe by men associated in
the promotion of the townsites
referred to, to the women who
located themselves on these invitations and assurances,
The Herald challenges any interest involved to refute this
statement.
The sordid story of the real
estate transaction in connection
with one of the "deals" resulting
in the erection of the houses referred to reveals the fact that
there are involved in the affair
men who occupy most important
positions in the civic life of their
"clean" city.
The Herald has been told by a
woman of the district who has
been duped by these enterprising
promoters, that until approached
by one of the men to whom we
refer she had no intention of
building her house. We are given
to understand that a certain corporation which feels itself involved through the action of one
of its representatives has undertaken to reimburse this woman
for her expenditure.
The Herald believes that the
very best course of action has
been taken by the police department in closing the houses and
preventing a scattering of this
deplorable evil, the only remedy
for which appears to lie in a policy of segregation. • We further
believe, however, that even a
prostitute is entitled to fair play,
and we unhesitatingly condemn
George in England.
Sir Thos. Lipton was, recently
in Rupert for 36 hours before the
townspeople discovered him.
ft Dd you contemplate g
A       BUILDING?        ►<
the infliction upon these women j A few days ago Hon, Martin
of such unscrupulous dealings as | Burrell was presented to King
those revealed.
Commendably lenient steps
were taken by the police in the
matter, and the Jordan woman,
who was convicted of running a
disorderly house on May 6th last,
was merely given a period to
leave the town. This woman is
now running a house in the segregated area in this town.
Regarding the segregated area
here, The Herald maintains its
stand that this section should be
held absolutely within its present
bounds and should not be allowed
to spread. As already stated in
these columns, we believe that
the women, if they are to be tolerated, should be given a certain
period, say six months, to move
to another location.
AS DTK SEE US
A correspondent, writing to
his friends about the Fort (Jeorge
section, through the medium of
the Wainwright Star, has the
following to say about the cities
of Fort George and South Fort
George:
Editor Star:
Would you please allow me
space in your valuable paper for
a few words. I promised to write
to a great many friends in Wainwright, so am taking this way of
saying a few words to all of
them.
I left Wainwright about April
20. On arrival at Tete Jaune, B.
C, found the water in the Fraser
river too low for navigation, so
seven men and myself joined
forces and built a scow, scowing
down from Tete Jaune to Fort
George, 310 miles in 9 days,
coming through safe, although
we were all green hands at the
busintss, but it was a trip I
would not care to make in a scow
again.
There have been many lives
lost in the canyon and whirlpool
since the water got higher and
in some places is very dangerous.
Common labor is worth from
50 cents to $1 per hour, but living is high too, flour being $10
per cwt. I would advise those
intending to come here to wait
till the G.T.P. is through.
At the present time there are
between two and three thousand
people in Fort George and South
Fort George.
South Fort George has the most
business and most people and
buildings just now. There's lots
of building going on and lots of
men to do it too, people coming
and going all the time.
The land is mostly all timbered here and plenty of rainfall.
I am sending a photo of scow
and crew taken as we were coming down the Fraser.
Yours respectfully,
J. B. Manner.
Fort George, B.C.

liopes, of miners who par-'
mi m freezing    blizzards or  were
6ff-.pt t,. their doom in treacherous
rapids of northern    rivers  in   their
mad rush towards the golden lure of
the North.
This   telegraph line    has told    ro-
mance, tragedy, triumph and despair.
It has carried many a story  of life
death,  crime    and    new-
ne. It has run the gamut
emotions.  It has told of
loits  of    tho   Northwest
diee, who guard the out-
pogts ol  Empire,  ol  pursuit of outlaws, ami the subduing  of  wild  Indians,  lt   has    told   of the  peaceful
conquests of the Hudson's Bay Company, of the trek of hardy pioneers
into the northern  valleys—day  after
day it has     sung the epic    of  the
north ever its sagging wires.
To this sofnsory nerve that stretches su long a    way  and   listens  for
news worth telling, Amunden confided
the fact  that    he  had  threaded  the
North-West passage, the goal of explorers since the days of  the stout-
Hearted Hendrik Hudson. He mushed
overland across  the  neck of  Alaska
from    his winter    quarters  at   the
mouth of the    Mackenzie    river  to
Eagle City, where he told his story
to the Yukon telegraph and trudged
back to his ship.
This lice will tell of Stafansson
and the Canadian expedition to unknown northern lands. He expects to
send couriers to its farthest outpost
each January. It will tell again of
Amundsen when he fares forth next
year over the icy wastes of the Arctic on his contemplated three year
•hilt across the polar sea.
The Yukon  telegraph    has  in  the
»ain followed old Indian trails.  Its
beginning was the line started north
to link   America    with    Europe  by
means of a cable across the Bering
Strait, a gigantic project that was
abandoned in  J.867  when  the  broken
Atlantic  cable    was repaired.   This
w«k, in charge of Col. Bulkley of
lbe l'""l'd States Army, cost $3,000,-

toi into Northern British Columbia,
spending hia last winter in the fertile valley that now bears his name.

named George Seacord, has been found
in the river at Mile 176, B. C, which is

John Kelly was shot and killed at:
Burns' Lake recently, as a result, it is
supposed, of a fight he had the day before. Kelly was in his bunk in his
cabin and the murderer shot with a
rifle through the window. The bullet
entered his head and Kelly died two
hours later. Constables Mclnnis and
Murdock soon got busy and made
an arrest. They think they have got
the right man. He was sent to Aider-
mere. Kelly was well known along
the line of construction, having been in
several camps for a number of years.
