Mr. ■). P. Enemark, of the B. C.

visit to the coast. Mr. Russell Peden,
ol the Northern Lumber Company, la
also in Vancouver on business, and
it is rumored that Mr. VV. B. Dean,
"I th fatuous Heights, WiU leave the
terminal city tor this place shortly.
here last week unexpectedly for his
home in Holland. Mr. Bronger will
return here in the early spring, tynd
it is rumored, far awaylnth*
land of windmills and stealns, there
owaits him a lady fair, who will
cross the briny ocean with him on his
return to South Fort George.
Returning from a visit to London,
where he held several conferences on
governmental matters, Sir Richard McBride, Premier of British Columbia,
said he cannot recall a time when interest in Canadian affairs was as keen
as it is at present. The material progress which Canada is making ia appreciated abroad, and as soon as the
money market resumes its normal condition there will be no difficulty In securing all the financial assistance wa
may require for legitimate development. He predicts that British Columbia in a few years will establish
some world records in nation building.
Major Chamberlain, of Chamberlain,
North Dakota, the brick manufacturer
who is completing all preparation to
establish a brick and allied clay product business here next spring, states
through a business associate here that
he has now assembled a complete plant
for Prince George, and will ship this
plant in to this point as soon as the
steel strikes here next spring.
This is just one of the many manufacturing businesses that will establish
later in the spring. Taking advantage
of the masses of raw material and the
ready market that Will await all manufactured products for the development
of a new country, it is to be wondered
at that we do not hear more of manufacturing products in process of formation.
Doubtless in the spring these much
desired producing houses will put in an
appearance. Several large manufacturing concerns recently purchased
trackage lots on the Prince George
townsite at the auction sale. Amongst
these we noted the names of theLeckie
Shoe Company and the Brackman-Kerr
Milling Company.
Prince George must inevitably become a large manufacturing centre.
The pulp wood throughout the whole
district will doubtless be manufactured
here into paper at some future date,
and this point, situated at the confluence of two large rivers, will become a
central point for the manufacture and
distribution of lumber for the prairie
markets.
Manufacturing sites are easily obtainable close to the G.T.P. tracks
hereabouts, and every facility will be
at the disposal of the manufacturing
enterprise as years go by and the many
hydro-electric p^DjoiJ^nj .on. these
rivers are developed and the thousands
of hone power an hour turned into
energy.
Tha development of the Bear river
and other coal fields will supply a cheap
fuel, and the anticipated discovery of
oil in the Peace river country will, if it
materialize, further assist manufacturing enterprises.
ODO CHAMBERLAIN DECLARED OFFICIALLY DEAD
Sequel to Sad Drowning Accident of Last Spring Occurs
in   Supreme  Court
The provincial government will soon
distribute samples of the new frost and
blight-resisting potato developed in
New Zealand which, it is believed, will
thrive in this province and prove of
great benefit to farmers. Arrangements have been made to get a quantity of the new potato for seed purposes. The Department of Agriculture is also taking steps to improve
the Beed of grains and other leading
crops of the province.
An order presuming death and allowing probate in the case of Odo Chamberlain has been granted by the Supreme Court.
Late in May of this year Odo Chamberlain, accompanied by Fred Lucas,
both well known and popular young
men, who had been in this district connected with survey work for some
years past, were drowned near the
mouth of the Willow river. There
were no witnesses to the tragedy, but
at the case which recently came up in
Vancouver testimony waa introduced
by persons who saw an unknown man
drowning in the river. The upturned
canoe was found a few days later, and
the testimony showed that the drowning accident had occuired about tha
same time and place where Odo Chamberlain was due.
The accident occurred shortly after
the opening of the navigable season
last spring, when the water was icy
cold. Although both were excellent
swimmers neither of the young men
had a chance or hope of life after the
canoe upset.
The bodies have never been recovered, aud the death of Lucas, who waa
possessed of considerable means, is
still officially unrecognised, although it
is anticipated that a similar order of
court will be sought by his relatives.
Petitions    Are    Circulated
Stating Opinion of Most
Convenient Location
Smithers is to have two newspapers
right at the start. The Smithers Tribune, formerly the Telkwa Tribune,
has just moved into its new building on
Main Street. R. 0. Miller, proprietor,
will continue to publish the paper, giving special attention to the new division
point as well as giving the news of the
whole Bulkley Valley. The Smithers
Review, MacDonald & Rauk, owners,
now published at Hazelton, will be established at Smithers aa soon as the
new building is completed.
A sub-station for the storage af
one of the fire extinguishers, was
built this week on Second Street
near the Kennedy Blair corner.
Skating on the new rink will commence as soon as the weather will
permit, which shoule be within the
next ten days.

A petition was in circulation here
this week, addressed to the Board of
Railway Commissioners of Canada,
stating that the most convenient point
in the Prince George townsite for the
location of the depot site was at the
foot of George Street, at the point designated by the G.T.P. as the proposed
itation site.
This petition was extensively signed
here and will be presented to the Commission to bear upon the future of the
case.
No date has been set, that we can
ascertain, for the hearing of the appeal
of this case, but this should come up
before the close of the year. It is understood that the Governor-in-Council
will examine into the evidence already
presented and will judge therefrom
whether the case should be re-heard or
the decision of the board sustained, in
the latter event the matter will be appealed to the Privy Council.
Aside from the Grand Trunk Pacific
Railway Company's interest in the
changing of the site .there now appears
the interests of the high-priced property owners in the George Street section
of the townsite. Many believe that
the location of the depot on the site
selected by the Railway Commission
would ruin the prospects of the whole
townsite in many respects, but the
chances of the'decision already rendered being sustained appear to be so
remote that little anxiety is felt here
in this regard.
STATION AT FORT FRASER
The Board of Railway Commissioners
have issued an order approving of a
station site and station at Fort Fraser,
mileage S72 east of Prince Rupert.
This will give to Fort Fraser first-class
railway facilities as the station, sidings, etc., are located at the point
where the owners of Fort Fraser townaite desired. Mr. R. A. Pringle, K.C,
Ottawa, acted for the Dominion Stack
and Bond Corporation, Ltd., and Mr.
W. H. Biggar and Mr. H. H. Hansard
for the Grand *Trunk Pacific Railway
Company. The G.T.P. Railway has no
interest in the Fort Fraser townsite,
however, their town being situated at
the opposite end of Fraser Lake, and
is called "Fraser Lake" on their system.

NEW LIBEL ACT FOR ALBERTA
A libel act for Alberta will be introduced in the Legislature by the attorney-general. The act states that
fair and accurate reports of the proceedings of legislative and local governing bodies, chief of police, etc., if
published in full or by way of fair synopsis, are privileged unless it is proved
that the publication is made maliciously. Newspapers arc protected aguinst
frivolous action hy a provision that
plaintiffs must, if thc judge so'decides,
give security for costs before the trial
is commenced. The act is largely
modelled on the British act and is believed to be satisfactory to the newspaper men of the province, who hitherto have had very inadequate protection from frivolous libel actions.

Adveiliiini Ratti on Application
COME time in the near future the Governor-in-Council
at Ottawa will hear an appeal from the decision rendered by three members of the Canadian Railway Com-
mission in the matter of the location of the station site
on the Prince George townsite. There are but two appeals from decisions of the Railway Commission; the
first of these is under the provisions of the Railway Act,
which refers disputed decisions to the Lieutenant-Governor in Council, who may either confirm or reverse a decision, or send the case back to the Railway Commission
for a re-hearing. The Privy Council of England may be
finally appealed to, as in all civil cases from the high
colonial courts.
The status of this case is interesting. In the first
place, it was taken before the Railway Commission at
Ottawa, prematurely, by a townsite company who
wished to force a location favorable to their properties
for purposes of lot selling. Their anxiety in this application was enhanced by the fact that they had anticipated a location close to their townsite in their advertising literature. The Board, then presided over by the
late Chairman Mabee, one of the greatest men the annals
of Canadian judiciary will ever know, refused to issue
any order when the rails were yet hundreds of miles
away from the location affected, but gave permission for
a re-hearing. This came up in May of the present year,
when two members of the board against a third, who
dissented, and without the presence of Chairman Drayton on the bench, issued an order locating the depot 3000
feet further west than the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway
wished to place it. Supporting the Grand Trunk location
as the most convenient and best selected site for all considered were the people of South Fort George, the Hudson's Bay Company and many independent interests
throughout the district cognizant of the situation and the
merits attaching to the claims of the conflicting interests.
When this case again comes up for the ruling of the
courts we pray devoutly that all the encumbrances of
misleading statistical data, of distorted facts and the
unimportant affidavits of townsite hirelings will be culled
from the proceedings by an eliminating process not difficult to arrange if the lawyers for the Grand Trunk Pacific are armed with all the facts bearing upon the case.
The situation as regards this Prince George depot site
has undergone a transformation since the matter last
came before the Railway commission. Then, it was evident that the only excuse for the decision rendered was
based upon the conditions represented as actually prevailing at the time of the hearing, without much regard
for the conditions which were to be safely anticipated
after the sale of the Prince George townsite. The anticipated conditions to which we refer have now materialized. Property represented by the people who brought
the case before the Railway Commission as important
business property, has faded into comparative insignificance before the values realized in the business section
of the Grand Trunk townsite over 6000 feet distant.
fHE reorganization of the Railway Commission which
is to be brought about at the next session of the
Dominion parliament is of great interest to us in this
part of the country. We have suffered not a little
through having the sessions of this body held here at
too long intervals. The railway crossing problem, for
instance, should have been advanced towards a solution
much more rapidly. If one of the suggested changes
comes into effect it will be possible to hasten action.
There is no doubt that the membership of the Commission will be largely increased, and if this is done,
why should it not be arranged that commissioners should
sit every week or so at the principal centres of the Dominion to take up matters that are pressing for attention ?
The complaint has been made that up to the present
the body has been too much of a one-man affair. While
that one man has done his work well, he has had too
much to look after and a division of territory has become
a necessity. —Edmonton Journal.

be demonstrated in the case of the recent destructive storm at Nome. It is stated that the sand washed

Most Important Indeed is the
Transition of Fort George
A year ago we were a mere hamlet-living together as one great
happy family—where the village
gossip went its rounds, where we
knew each other's business, discussed each other's family history for
generations back until the indiscretions of our great-grandparents wi ■
common gossip, while today we
scarcely know our next-door neighbour. Our streets populated with
natives from mostly every part of
the inhabitable globe, and our language spoken in a hundred tongues.
Where the real estate man is reaping a rich harvest, and men that
have scarcely been able to raise
themselves above the level of actual
want are becoming rich almost every
day.
And with all this progress we wish
to impress you that the Kennedy-
Blair Co. are keeping pace.
A year ago we were a mere country store, where the one clerk sold
you beans, silk handkerchiefs and
cross-cut saws; while today we can
toast of the largest and most efficiently equipped department store
in the interior of B. C.
We anticipated this great influx
of people and ordered our goods accordingly. We would like to have
you call and inrpect our winter
clothing. If you are going to build
a house call and inspect our hardware. If you want a trapping outfit
or a tie contracting outfit don't forget us, we have had many years'
experience.
We also appeal to the ladies to
come in and sen us. We have on
hand an enormous stock of ladies'
wear. I am not familiar with the
names of the particular garments,
but we have all colors ana they feel
to contain great stuff. If you will
just step in and have a chat with
our ladies' salesman, I am sure you
will be interested.

The pr0blem of a route from
! „ George as a supply centre
Pirte Se river valley at last
1 ° L to have found recogni-
71 nS a matter of vital importance to the future of these com-
■"Jfnerald has dwelt upon
is subject from time to time
' since we set up the big
'an,l spread this journal
ml Again we say that this
atter'of a route into the Peace
iver country deserves the immediate attention of everv inter-
«t having at heart the future
greatness of Prince George. The
peace river valley will some day
bet0 this place what Alaska was
ln Seattle; what the Panama
Canal will be to Vancouver; or
what the Coeur d'Lene mines
were to Spokane.
There are at present three
ljnes of travel into the Peace
nver country. They are as follows :
Via Edmonton to Athabasca
Landing. 105 miles by rail,
C.N.R.; Athabasca Landing to
Grouard, 135 miles road or
steamboat; Grouard to Peace
river crossing, stage road, 86
miles; Peace river crossing to
Dunvegan, 65 miles road; Dunvegan to Fort St. John, trail or
monthly steamboat, 110 miles.
The steamboat routes are, of
course, applicable only in the
navigable seasons.
Via Edson, on main line of the
G.T.P,, wagon road about 160
miles long to Grande prairie;
road aboul 90 miles to Fort St.
John.
Via Ashcroft, on C.P.R., to
Fort George, 310 miles by automobile and steamboat; or via
tho G. T. P.   from   Edmonton.
Fort George to Giscombe Portage, 30 miles; Giscombe to Summit Lake, 7 miles; Summit Lake
to Fort McLeod, 70 miles by canoe; McLeod to Rocky Mountain
Portage, 146 miles by canoe;
Rocky Mountain Portage to Hudson's Hope, 12 miles by trail.
Hudson's Hope to Fort St, John,
45 miles by steamboat, raft or
rail.
Taking Fort St. John as the
present commercial centre of the
Peace River Valley, and compiling from that point routes of'
travel to supply points on the
G.T.P. next spring, it will be
readily seen that Prince George
lands far ahead of the competitive points as the natural supply
centre for the Peace.
Presuming that the traffic into
the Peace river country before
the arrivals of the railroads now
heading in that direction, will be
practically confined to the navigable season, it will be seen that
the Fort George route, leaving
the G.T.P. here next spring, allows the traveler 291 miles of
travel into the Peace river by
water, and down stream. The
only land travel on the route is
over the nineteen miles of portage roads. By Edson the route
is over 250 miles of wagon road,
which crosses innumerable rivers

^E will offer for sale in the next three weeks a portion of
D. L. 2062, in one and a quarter acre tracts at from Five
to Eight Hundred Dollars an acre.
This property, formerly known as Hamilton Farm, is strategically located at the confluence of the Fraser and Nechaco rivers,
and almost directly opposite the eastern boundary of the G. T. P.
townsite of Prince George, and less than three-quarters of a
mile from the business centre.
All the land lays level and the river front will make some of
the choicest mill and factory sites in the new city whilst the back
portion will be sold as ideal residence property as soon as transportation facilities are obtained, which will be in the near future.
The day is not far distant when property of this kind will be
extremely hard to purchase, as water front property, where
navigation is considered at all, is more valuable than land further
inland, and we have over a mile frontage about ten to thirty feet
above the river banks.
As this property will be sold while it lasts in all the big cities
both in the east and west you would do well to place your order
immediately to either the

valley north of us. There is an
old trail from Fort McLeod to
Stewart's Lake, made by the
officers of the Northwest Company for fur-trading purposes
over 100 years ago, and a poor
portage road across Giscombe,
seven miles, practically built and
improved by Seven-foot Davis
and other old-timers.
A movement is now on foot to
open up the Stuart river and develop a chain of waterways
which will give access to the
Omineca country by a series of
lakes and portages. Whilst the
opening up of the Stuart Lake
country is an absolute necessity,
yet as a route to open up the
Peace river valley it cannot be
compared with the direct routes
by water north from the height
of land on the Fraser river.
The route we advocate is the
opening up of a wagon road from
a point on the big Salmon river
to the headwaters of the Parsnip
river, which is navigable to its
headwaters for small steamboats.
The  Parsnip   river   joins   the
Peace at the junction of the Finlay and is a navigable stream for
its entire length.   As an alternative route, suggested to The
Herald this week by a party who
have just returned from the valley, a road could be built up the
valley of the Little Salmon river
to Davis   Lake, north of  Fort
McLeod, which would eliminate
the tortuous Crooked river, but
unlike the Parsnip route would
necessitate the traversing of the
Pack river, which is almost as
bad to navigate as the Crooked.
The   government should  appropriate a large sum for the
opening up A a route into the
British Columbian  Peace river
country.   British Columbia needs
a James K. Cornwall, and the
future will surely produce such
a character to tell the world of
the opportunity which is being
neglected by this province in the
Peace river country today,

In investing in Willow River property be sure
that your property comes to you direct from the

mistake in this. There is only one official and

people residing at the Hotel Rowbarts on Third Street, will appear
next Thursday without fail. A programme was constructed by Manager
Boehner at the last moment, and a
fair performance  was rendered.
The proprietor of the Bon Ton
Bowling Alleys on Third Street has
started a popularity contest for
ladies. Bowlers are presented with a
ballot at the end of a game entitling
the holder to a certain number of
Votes in favor of the popularity of
any lady he likes to nominate, and
bye and bye the most popular of the
more deadly specks will be presented with a diamond ring. This paves
the way to a delightful mix-up. Now
supposing, for instance .... But we
refuse to strain the resources of the
English language, when there still remains that never-to-be-forgotten and
conclusive phase "We should worry."
Snow fell here this week, and from
all appearances it is here to stay for
the winter. No ice has yet been running in the riper, and the weather is
not cold as yet. The fall season has
been beautiful, and indications point
to a fine winter. We have not yet
heard the invaluable opinion of the
Indians on the matter, and we await
with considerable interest their prognostications., We used to know the
signs they tell things by, but being
out of practice the sight of a crow
looping the loop in the heavens
above has lost its significance, whilst
we have forgotten whether the spectacle of a beaver /.limbing a tree
foretells a hard winter or a soft one.
A dinky engine and train of dump
cars on Sam Magoffin's contract
slid into the river this week when
thei grade went out from under them.
No one was hurt, and it is understood that the greatest part of the
outfit can be salvaged.
