The Indian Reserve
Proofs of the Fake Deal—G. T. P. Should
Soon be the Owners
On September 2nd., last The Herald published the news that Indian Reserve No. 1
here had been sold by the Indians to an individual numed P. G. D. Durnford. We published thi news in absolute good faith, be-
leiving that the deal was bona fide, as we
were assured it wub by Father Cocola, the
Indian' missionary who presided over the Indian's interests at the supposed sale. Thc
agreement was signed by every lndiun on
the1 rancherie, with' intent to sell their reserve for the sum.of $100,000,.and entailing
further expenditures, on new homes for the
Indians on another reserve, amounting to
about $35,000 more. Mr. Durnford, we understand, satisfied Father Cocola as to his
ability to carry out the deal, and a telegram was received by the missionary from
Ottawa which justified his action in tha
matter.
It now transpires thut F. G. 1). Durnford
was not in a position   to purchase the re
serve at all, and that his "deal" was a
frame-up of his own, or in collusion with
some astute individuals who ure keeping in
the background, us the change of government muy huve affected their pluns, und
wavering discreetly over all we cun trace
the influences of a slick gentleman in Vancouver—who -''all be nameless.
In conversation with Mr. J. G. Ramsdcn,
Chief Inspector und Indian Commissioner,
who urrived here'las: week, with Mr. T. W.
McRae, Claims Agent for the Grand Trunk
Pacific Railway Company, to acquire the
Indian's rights in thc Ian..4 for that company, Tl_e Heruld wus informed that Mr.
Durnford had no uuthority, either expressed
or implied, from thc Department cf Indian
Affairs, in uny shnpe or form, 'to purchase
the Fort George Reserve. As a matter of
fact he' hns not been, and is not, in any way
connected with the department. The agreement he made was   irregular and invalid,
and consequently has not und will not be
recognized by the department.
Thut Mr. Durnford wus not even aware ol
the proper procedure whicli the "Indian
Act" requires shall be followed in obtuining
the surrender of lndiun Lands, is now very
obvious. His agreement wus rendered uuto-
muticully void by the fact thut he endeavoured to acquire rights over that lund without conforming to the requirements of Canadian law governing such contingencies. The
contents or efTect of his agreement are not
public property, und ure known only to Mr.
Durnford und his witnesses, but we huve
reason to believe that the transfer, under
his ugreement, wus made to u gentlemun in
Ottuwu. Now uccording to section 50 of the
"Indian Act" the following, quotation will
show thut such u trunsfer wus not worth
even the dollur that Mr. Durnford paid for
it.
"und no surrender of any reserve, or
portion of uny reserve, to any other
person other than His Majesty, shall be
valid."
And again, the Act states in sub-section
I of section 49, that:
"Except us in thi*. part otherwise provided, no release or surrender of a reserve, held for the use oi the Indiuns of
uny band, or of any individual Indian,
shall be valid and binding, unless the
release or surrender shall be usscnted to
by a majority of the male members of
the band of the full age of twenty-one
yearB, ut u meeting or council thereof
summoned for that purpose, according
to the rules of the bund,i and held in the
presence of the Superintendent General,
or of un officer duly authorized to attend sucb.council, by the Govenor in
Council or by the Superintendent Gen-
eral."
At Mr. Durnford's meeting of Indians
there were present besides himself, a bank
manager, and the Indian missionary. Mr.
Durnford had no authority from the Indian
Department, as previously stated.
There is a regular printed form of surrender got out by the Dept. of Indian Affairs, for the use of its officers when securing
the surrender of the rights of a bund to its
reservntion. The uctual surrender is made
in thc following terms:
"The band hereby release, remise, surrender, quit claim, and    yield up unto
our Soverign Lord the King, bis heirs,
and successors forever."
There facts show    conclusively that Mr.
Durnford sought to    acquire an option on
the valuuble reserve here for one dollur,
without knowing the first thing ubout the
method of procedure. However, as his deal
is entirely off, and his importance is not
sufficiently great to waste more space upon
his operations, we bury F. G. D. Durnford
until ho butts-in again. We give this explanation to our readers of a 'phoney deal
tnat possessed, at first sight, all the ear
marks of genuineness.
Mr. Kumsden, who is now here as the
authorized agent of the Minister of the Interior, ulso Superintendent General of Indian Affairs, is here to aid the railway company in taking the preliminary steps in acquiring the reserve, and at the same time to
attend to the best interests of the Indians,
for his department. Mr. McRae, of the G. T.
P, will make an offer to the tribe after they
ure assembled here. They are coming in
daily from their hunting grounds in response to the runners sent out by Mr. Ram-
sden, and the matter should be finally settled early next week.
There is no doubt in the opinion of The
Herald that the deal will go through without very much trouble and we hope to announce in our next issue that the Indians
_iuve surrendered to the Crown, for sale to
the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway for town-
site and terminnl purposes.
THE END OF NAVIGATION—REVIEW OF THE SITUATION
Local and Provincial
A local hunting, party, composed of
Messrs. Harry Close and Wallace Brown,
accompanied hy,Bcn Bodeker, as guide und
cunoeman, left town this week for a hunting
trip into the country near the Grand Canyon. The party were provisioned for ' a
month.
Several new buildings arc going up in
town, amongst which are Mr. Geo. Forbe's
cottage on Second street, and a residence
being erected by Mr. Dan. Brewster, on
Hamilton Avenue. #
The now Northern hotel received its now
licence last week. It brings, joy to tho camp,
for the insignificant square paper pinned up
behind the splash-register means that booze
may be purchased for so much a,throw, by
the bottle or in a glass, without having recourse to the uncertified vendors of unccr-
<ertui|ii brands, or, to the long-winded cider
jags of days gene by. The district is no
longer "dry"; It is now wet. The stock of
liquor is first-class (thoy say) und includes
everything from Victoria beer-to French
Champagne. The barkeep is capable of executing a pousse-cafc or corpse-reviver, and
'lie cigars may be smoked till tl_ey color
the finger nails. There is no chance- on
earth for Dr. Spencer making a hit hereabouts, soi be,had better stay away. A well
regulated licenced house is a necessary adjunct to a realilive town, inhabited by men
who can ''take a drink and leave it alone."
I'p at Tete Jaune Cache there,is no town
and no licence, but tho bohunks are there;
and so are ths "blind-pigs." He have been
informed that thc latter have vended their
diluted vitrol as high ns $25 a bottle. It
is also rumored thut there is a still in tho
hills up there somewhere, that makes a particularly atrocious brand of rot-gut. It
will not be long ere the construction army
is upon us here and tho granting of r. 'licence
to men who will net'under thc privileges it
allows them, strictly in accordance with
"ie "Liquor Licence Act," of B, C, which,
we believe to be the best legislation over
enacted in Canada to govern the sale of intoxicants, is a common sense, practical and
efficient wny of controlling the "liquor
evil" thut inconsistent, pale-yellow-jelly reformers ruvc about, but know very little of.
The story of the "Pathfinding automobile," which reached Hazelton from Scuttle
'••contly, ROing viu Quesnel and the Fruser
'■uke wagon road, receives a rude jar liy thc
'net which has come to light, that thc car
w«s dismantled and packed for a distance

The season of navigation on the upper
Fraser River has now practically drawn to
a close. Reviewing the season, which tb_
conclusion of the navigable period may be
said to tei<minute. Wo cun not, consistently,
chronicle the influx period of the year 1911
ns a prosperous season in the history of the
town. There hue been much active development, and not for a moment hus the town
hesituted in its career towards the establishment of the commercial und industrinl centre of thc new northland, but the development, tl»e upbuilding, and the active advancement of South Fort George has devolved upon the locul populace and the vested interests of the country. The spring
promised fairly enough to mark thc commencement of the boom era in the history
x of this place, and the first boat of the sea-
V son landed over one hundred passengers on
i~ mi ,    ■ " '■-" " -—■ -the "outBide"  has
never wavered from our city, ugriculturu1
lands and property in the business centre
here have steadily increased and maintain-
ed their vulues, but the (Kioplo did not
flock in, und the population shows no very
decided increase over thut of lust your. Tho
reason is simple enough, for the Grand
Trunk Pacific railway have never yet officially placed the hull mark of thoir approval upon this place, as the importunt nnd
strutegical point from which tliey will radiate their bianch lines, and which as their
divisional point, situated in the only logical and natural point for the growth of tho
big inlund city, in the country they bisect,
but their decision rests upon the acquisition of the Indian reserve here for terminal
und townsite purposes, und until the present dute the ruilroad company has never directly approached the Indians with any proposition to  buy,  save  in the instances of
two attempts mode through the Department
of Indian Affairs, without the uid of uny
representative of tba railroad company. The
Indian reserve deal huB been the one question which the outside public have waited
for before finally pinning their faith to the
city of Fort (ioorge. We do not refer to the
townsites of George Hammond on the Nechaco river, when we mention the city of
Fort George, although that stake-maze is a
townsite registered under the name of "Fort
George," but in our estimation and from
the supporting facts, there will ever be a
vast difference in the city of Fort George to
which we refer, and the townsite of Fort
George aforementioned.
During the past season strong interests
have invested lar^c sums in industrial enterprises here. The •). D. McArthur Construction company, of Winnipeg, one of the
strongest contractim/. f rms in Canada, has
purchased the interests of the defunct Fort
George Lumber & Navigation Co. The government have given us a local government
office, and the district a government agent.
Many now wagon roads have been built
throughout the country nnd a gratifying
number of pre-emptors have settled upoo
lands. Two ferries have been built here,
linking up the country to the north and
east with the supply centre. In South Fort
George tho splendid new buildings that have
gone up on all sides speak eloquently of
the faith the people on the ground have in
their city, and the summer weather has
paid a splendid tribute to the district's
agriculturists whose crops have yielded Wonderful results in production.
The outlook for next yea.r is encouraging
in the extreme. It may be said that the
populace of this place are preparing for
their last winter of isolation and inconvenience, due to primitive transportation methods^ By next spring the steel rails   of   the
BIG GAME HUNTERS INVADING THE DISTRICT-Good Bags
Theodore Bnrnaby, un English big gumo
hunter, who left here on September fourth
for the Big Snlmon river to hunt cariboo,
returned from the upper Fraser early in the
woek. Mr, Barnaby brings back several fine
trophies of the chase, including the antlers
of three cariljoo and one set of moose horns,
besides a splendid grizzly skin. The cariboo
Mr. Barnaby    shot on  the  Salmon river,
whilst the grizzly and 'moose fell victims to
his rifle on Tonequah creek, near the Grand
Canyon. Mr. Barnaby is very well satisfied
with the results of his trip into the northern interior in quest of game. He left here
by cunoe, nccompunied by Wm. Seymour,
nn lndiun guide, nnd a halfbrced canoeman.
He is very favorably impressed with the
country und the prospects of this place as a
future metropolis. Mr. Burnaby leaves here
shortly for Vuncouver Island, where he will
hunt Wapiti. This country presents illimitable opportunities for the big game hunters
of'the world. Moose and Cariboo abound
on the tributaries of the upper Fraser,
whilst grizzly and black bear are common
in the timber,
The hunting   possibilities of the country
Grand Trunk Pacific railway will have arrived at Tete Jaune Cache, and by the fall
of the year tho grade should have reached a
point within easy reaching distunce of Fort
Georgo. Means of communication with the
end of steel will be established and thc town
will benefit vastly by the belt of communication established between Ashcroft and Edmonton by steel, stage coach, automobile
and water routes.
That the Grand Trunk Pacific railway
will now acquire the reserve there appears
very little room for doubt. When this is an
accomplished fact tba hordes of people that
have boon waiting to come here after some
definite announcement has been made by
tlie railroad company, as to their intentions will pour into the town and commence the real upbuilding of the great city
that will inevitably arise upon the point of
land at the confluence of the Fraser and Nechaco rivers.
have never been properly exploited, but local merchants arc beginning to realize the
fact that they are allowing a valuable addition to the trade of the country to escape
them through the lack of information reaching the hunters, and it is possible a campaign will be started to place pamphlets,
setting forth the advantages that the country offers to sportsmen, in the hotels und
sports clubs of the world.
thc locul agent of the British Columbia Express company returnod empty. The Indians who polled thc dugout back from
Quesnel aver that the Quosnel agent would
not give them any mnil for this point. Thut
settles it. It is up to tho citizens here to
register n kick against thc high-handed independence of tl» mail contractors. There
was absolutely no reason to refuse the Indians the letter muil for South Fort
George. They had l-ccn sent,d<_wn with tho
outgoing mail by tl*> company, but were
not allowed to bring uny matter, buck.
There never wus yet n public service corporation without one or two fook in its personnel, but tho B. C. Express company up-
peurs to huve more than its share.

section, failed recently. F. 1). Noble was

A word to the wise is sufficient. Let The
Herald put our local readers wise to a fuct
thnt mny be deemed sufficient without mentioning any names. There is a blooded horse
in town. It is quite an extraordinary und altogether unique animal as horses go, and
its claim to being blooded is, in our estimation, based solely upon the condition it
lands its driver in at the end of a "spin."
It is a fine horse, full of ginger and life lt
is also chock full of ideus of independence,
und tho conquest of matter over mind when
properly arrangod. Tlw other day tho animal's owner, meeting a friend up town offcrod
to take him for a spin behind the pacer.
The unsuspecting  one readily acquiesced.
C. M. HAYS ON THE WORK OF THE TRANSCONTINENTAL
The adjourned unnunl meeting of the
shareholders of the Grand Trunk Railway
company was held in (Montreal on tho Ilth
instant, with 0. M. Hays, president, in the
chair. Tho president stated that during the
year track-laying on the main line of the
western division hud been extended from
Wolf creek to Fitzhugh, west of tho Athabasca rivor in the Rockies, which will be
the divisional point for that section, and
that construction work is under full headway, with night and' day forces, to Tete
Jnune Cache, on the Eraser river, beyond
tho Yellowhead Puss, on thc western slope
of thc Rocky Mountains. It is expected that
track-laying will read, this point, which is
1094 miles west of Winnipeg, before the close
of the year.
"For the purpose of establishing suitable
hotel accommodation throughout the country which will be traversed by your company's lines," continued the president, "it
is proposed to construct a cbein of first-
class modern hotels, and with this object in
view u contract has been let for the con-
construction of a large hotel in the city of
Winnipeg at a cost of $1,300,000. Good progress has been made on construction work
on the Ontario division, and the present
condition of that work shows n total of 1,-
223.45 miles of main line track and 11-6.50
miles of sidetrack laid, and the remaining
portions of the section are all under contract. With the construction therefore approximately 5133 miles, undertaken in the
first instance, there has been laid ut the
present time pructicnlly 3300 miles of main
line track."
Clearing of righti of way on the uncompleted gap of the railway from Tete Jaune
Cache, westward to Aldermere in Bulkley
valley, was started a few weeks ago by tho
contractors, Foley, Welch & Stewart. Operations thus far are restricted to the route
along the south fork of the Fraser river between the Cache and Fort George.
J. W. Stewart, managing director of the
firm, with K. W. Kelliher, chief engineer of
thc railway, and J. Callaghun, Western.
Divisional Engineer on construction, arrived
here Thursday night, and were met by C. C_
VanArsdel Chief location engineer of the
western division, who arrived here last
week to intercept thc party and accompnny
them to Hazelton.
"Get in" said the owner to his friend, as ho
started to unhitch the animal. The horse
sat up and took notico. He climbed half
way up a telegraph polo just to show that
ho was in form, then took the owner and
his guest out into the country, where, having exercised himself sufficiently, he side-
steppod about thirty feet, playfully k' ked
off the cross bur and tore up a couple ol
trees with his teeth, then he executed stunts
with the buggy thnt successfully landed the
occupants with dull sickening thuds in a
puddle and went home with what was left
at a 2.40 clip. The animal looks like an old
plug that couldn't run u lick on earth, but
his appearances are deceptive, he is cunning
und very wise.—Beware.

A meeting wus held in the store of the
Northern Dumber compuny /on IMonduy to
dispose of the balance left over from the 1st.
of July celebration. The balance in question is $184.58, On motion it was doodled to
donate half of this sum to defray tho expenses incurred in laying out tho baseball
grounds last summer, at the corner of 4th
street, and the remaining portion to be
placed at the credit of the fire department.
A statement of the First of July celebration wus road at the meeting, which showed
that a total of $745.00 had been collected.

Tho birds have flown to the south. The
leaves have fallen from the trees. The babbling brooks   have  ceased to babble.   Ice
cream signs have been taken down. Moth
balls have been shaken from beuver coats.
Every store in town has stoves in its windows. The sale of beer has fallen off. The
Indians are buying blankets. Axes are being filed. These, nnd other signs of the approach of winter arc plnin for nil eyes to
see. Winter in Fort George means remoteness ,ifrom the outside world. There is not
a good ship's company here, but Inst winter
the conditions under which the isolated
community, camped in the right of way of
tho best transcontinental railroad on the
continent, nt a point which a few years will
chunge into a busy metropolis, suffered
more inconveniences nnd privations,
through more limited conveniences, thnn
they will have to undergo during this, the
last winter of their discontent. For weeks
last winter it was impossible to secure un
egg in the town at lany price. Meat was
scarce at times, and even potatoes were rare
articles of diet. These staple requisites aro
here aplenty now. The entertainment of
the public has been provided for. We have
a licenced hotel that sells good whisky, «nd
other conveniences without number. True,
our connection with the world outsido will
still' be limited to a narrow ribbon of a
sleigh road three hundred milcs in longth,
but the prospect of winter under our bettered conditions appalls us not at all. I     ■■_

If trnde falls oil we think the
newspapers ought to print the

Anything that is true, important and moral ought to be
good enough to print in any

Otherwise we take the simplest

If we arc to have a period of

THE PRESS OF TODAY FEEBLY
REFLECTS PUBLIC OPINION
Hampton',. Ma_a_tn_,
The news that the leading
railroad systems of tlu country
had decided to discharge great
numbers of their employees
must have come like a cold
douche   upon most observers.
Questioned ns to the reasons
for Oi policy that would mean
so much distress and hardship
to so many persons, the man
All this is on the supposition
that the railroads have any
basis for their assertion. We
do not know why the transportation business should be
bad. It looks all right. But we
ilo know this, that any period
of depression or distress in a
country overflowing with
wealth and resources is a
strange and monstrous anomaly that ought never to be.
We observe that some authorities commenting on thc new
policy of railroad retrenchment
declare that there has been
overproduction and to this
cause ascril)c tike auguries of
evil.
Before this suggestion any
thoughtful person mny well
stand aghast.
How can it lie right that be-
cnuse there litis been over production great numbers of men

pessimist,   we    had daily columns of optimism   with which
to overwhelm him.
And now, of a sudden, the

business pulse of the country,
announce that business is ho
bad ii.nd the outlook so gloomy
they must reduce their staffs by
lifty thousand men.
We do not know how this
can be true, hut assuming that

If this is the best we can do
with this world of ours, that
men must starve because there
is too much wealth in it, you
might think we had better call
tlie whole thing off and go back

You might also tl.Onk that
our perspective of things important needs readjustment.
For surely nothing else be of
any real importance except this
absurd and most pernicious

of human lieings n,re at tl..i
