tow    8 connectio»  of all the

made by trail.
From this point Col. McGregor
went to Fort St.James and west
to the coast,
Col. McGregor was afterwards
associated with John Houston,
formerly owner of this paper, in
New Westminister. Later he
went to Dawson and was
through the early stirring times
in the Yukon, running a paper
called the 'Yukoner' for 10 years
in that north city.
Col. McGregor is making a
trip back through the country of
his early days, and left for Quesnel and Barkerville the scene of
many recollections of the 70's
and 80's.
provement then and promised a
committee of the Chamber of
Commerce that an appropriation
of $5,000.00 would be made as
the (lovernment's share of the
expense.
To confirm this a wire was received by Geo. McLaughiln, from
Minister Taylor reading as follows :
"Executive Council approves
grant $.5,000,00 lo be paid on
completion of road and bridge to
satisfaction of Department Engineers. Will confirm by letter."
Thomas Taylor.
In the early part of the summer the Hon. W. J. Bowser, Attorney neneral and Hon. R. W.
Ross, Minister of Lands, with
John A. Fraser, and other members of the Provincial Government made an extensive trip
through the Northern Interior of
British Columbia and as a result
the Ministers were able to present the needs to the Executive
Council intelligently from first
hand information, and not by
the say so formal reports of
others, always weighed with a
measure of doubt and the possibility of its not being as necer-
sary as presented, by the Government listening to similar requests from all parts of the province.
But with the Government making good on this petition, and by
this action assuring us they are
alive to our requirements, the
Herald from information to hand
feels assured that the people of
this dislrict will have no cause
to justly complain at the future
plans of Government in the opening up of the district to roads into its country, and in other ways
helping us out in our own efforts,
in that direction.
Work will now be pushed vig-
London, Oct. 9th.-Canadian troops landed in England
to-day at Portsmouth and will train on the famous Salisbury Plains before going to the front. The entire Canadian
forces are reported as having made the trip across the
Atlantic and arrived without accident and all well.
Ostend, Oct. 8th. -A large British force is on the way
to the relief of Antwerp via. Ostend, the Germans having
laid seige to Antwerp and arc contending with all their
force for its possession. The Germans are reported as
using their heaviest Krupp siege guns, and making a most
determined attack, also using Zepelin dirigibles with
deadly effect in dropping bombs into the city. The loss of
life and destruction is said to be frightful.
Vancouver, Oct. 8th.-The Grand Jury to-day returned
a true bill against officials of Minoru Race Track, the
charge being the open practice of keeping common betting
house. The meet has being going on for over seventy
days.
London, Oct. 9th, Special Correspondent to the Herald.
The attack of the Germans on Antwerp the past twenty-
four hours has been terrific. Antwerp is burning in four
places. One German airship was brought down by shells
from the Allies guns. A relief force of the English sent
to aid the Belgians succeeded in capturing a large force
of the Germans.
Paris, Oct. 8th,-Premsyl in Galicia is in flames and
about to surrender to the Russians. The Russian forces
in the east continue their forward movements, meeting
success all along the route.
Ottawa, Oct. 9th.-The second Canadian force to be sent
to the front will consist of twenty-two thousand men and
will leave Canada before Christmas. Already this contingent is over recruited.
Philadelphia, Oct. 9th. The first game of the World
Series was fought out on Shibe Park Grounds, this afternoon between the Boston Nationals and Philadelphia
Americans. Boston won - 7 to 1. The next game will be
played in Boston Saturday afternoon.

By request the Herald publishes
the following letter :
Dear Madam,—
I beg to acknowledge receipt

their lodge rooms in Lurch's pire concert and dance held by
Hall corner Hamilton and Third |£.e inhabitants of South   Fort
George for the benefit of the
| Streets South Fort George.   The
j Odd Fellows night each year has
eclisped  the  previous  occasion
|and it is always a time of entertainment looked forward to with
keen appreciation. This year
it is expected that some novel
j features not heretofore thought
pf will make the occasion unique
in entertainment and dancii.g for
this section. Everybody will
want to turn out and take part
in the masquerade. Prizes will
be given to the different characters and some surprises are in
store, ^^^^^^^^^^^^^

of widows and orphans. Don't
forget its October 30th, "not far

8:30 p. m. sharp.

orously to complete the improvement before the frosts and cold
weather of winter cause further
delay.
It is also hoped the Avenue
will be pushed through for use
by the people before bad weather
sets in, which has always made
the round-about route Ly the
Fraser a hardship in going to
and from the different towns.
This new avenue will bring the
(I rand Trunk Depot within ten
minutes walk of the Central
Hotel section of South Fort
George and a three minutes ride,
lt also opens up a route for a
trolley line to connect the three
towns.
This a p p r o p r i a t i o n by the
Government at this time is all
the more appreciated because of
the financial and political disturbances throughout the world
which has so beset business and
Government alike. It helps at
a time when the letting loose of
a little money even the $10,000
which the work will cost means
much to the city. It is as good
as a $15,000.CO appropriation in
prosperous times. Again it
helps, improves and beautifies
the whole city.
All sections have been benefitted, and the real public spirited
citizen will be grateful for the
Accomplishment and give all the

Big Lacrosse Match
On Sunday at the Riverside

at 3 p.m., a stirring game of Lacrosse will be waged between

the well-known coast lacrosse

but wishes to take the opportunity,
through the medium of this paper, of
asking the men to hold themselvee in
readiness in anticipation of a hurried
call.
The men enrolled hero number 97, all
of whom have passed the medical examination held locally, and the attendances at drill have heen of a very satisfactory nature, the men having shewn
a very creditable enthusiasm all along.
Numerous difficulties have been encountered, such as the absence of rifles
etc., but these have in no way dampened
the ardour of the men, and Fort George
.ill we are sure, have reason to be
proud of her little band of patriots.
They have the hearty good wishes of
the residents in ihe district and will
leave behind many who would willingly
serve their King and Country at thia
crisis, but who are prevented by various
causes from doing so.
lt has been suggested by some ladies
in the town, in order to show their
appreciation of the men's spirit in coming forward so readily to serve their
country in her time of need, that they
provide the men with some warm clothing, preferably flannel shirts, good
woolen socks, and what is always a
useful and acceptable gift a small
" Housewife " containing needles, pins,
buttons, thread, darningwool, etc.

Mr. Heme, Government Agent, and
Mr. Marvin, Distriot Forester, both of

no more, lt has been variously
estimated that her age ranged
from 85 to 95 years, and up to
recently she fished and hunted
and trapped as of old in her
favorite hunting grounds and
brought to town her spoils for
the market. Mary Quah, as the
Government and Church records
will ever know her, is survived
by several children, Brand children and great grand children
among them Joe Quah the present chief of the tribe of Siwush
