**•*•
Whereas, the citizens have spent
large sums to build streets, sidewalks, and other Improvements,
there by materially enhancing the
value of government property;
Therefore, be it resolved that the
Chamber of Commerce of South Kort
George request the minister of public works to set aside a sum not less
than 17.500 for street Improvements
In South Kort George. That this
sum be expended and the Improvements asked for be prosecuted in the
coming spring.
The following resolution was
submitted to the president, officers
and executive hoard of the Chamber
of Commerce of South Kort George,
B.C.;
Complying with your request of
Feb. 17, we herewith submit report
on the conditions of the fire department:
The property consits of Fire
Hall with bell, 1 60-gal. chemical
lire engine, 2 33-gal. chemical fire
engines, 2 fire stations, hook and
ladders, ropes, lanterns, buckets and
chemicals.
All of the numerous paraphernalia
that' goes with apparatus of such a
nature. The whole aggregating a
value of about  $5,i)00.00.
There is in the Bank of British
Nortii America at this date $130.59.
In the Royal Bank, $208.50. Total,
$339.09.
There are subscriptions pledged
but as yet not paid that will add
about $160 to $200.
We believe there are about $350
to $450 more than can be collected on
personal application of the committee.
But we have no meaiiB outside of
personal solicitation of voluntary
subscriptions or other donations that
could be even remotely associated
with a steady revenue.
There are outstanding bills to be
paid aggregating possibly $400,
which the Intervening time prior to
your next meeting does not allow
Bufllcient opportunity to report actually. These expenses are for
wages of watchman, wood, for fire
hall, blacksmith, soda, stove, coal
oil, brooms, lye and incidentals generally necessary for the upkeep of
suoh a plant. We owe the Royal
Bank a note of $220, borrowed
against equipment.
As for our immediate needs, we
believe the department Would be
greatly strengthened and the property of the town more amply protected by the purchase and main-
talnence of a good strong horse to
get our apparitus to the fires inor.e
quickly. A very few minutes might
save a desperate and dangerous situation. Our streets are not smooth
nor paved so that our apparatus runs
smoothly, and very frequently those
charged with the duty of hauling
engines to the fires are at the moment so engaged or distant from the
scene, as to cause unavoidable delays which a horse and man in
charge would avoid possibly to the
saving of thousands of dollars of
property.
With more ample equipment premiums on fire Insurance might be Bafe-
ly reduced In amount of Insurance
carried and these premiums donated
to the fire protection fund, Increas-
to a value much greater than the
amount of Insurance reduced—and
premiums thus diverted. We would
not havfe to carry so much insurance
with greater protection and the upkeep of the department would be
lightened by the premiums thus
saved to our own needs rather than
to send out of the country to companies far distant.
We also advise the purchase of a
double tank chemical Are engine,
also a Pompier scaling ladder, and
12 33-gal. Badger chemical engines.
Our present expen.es are about
$200 per month, paid out for acids,
soda, fuel, kerosene and night watchman.
At present three of the volunteer
flremeu sleep ln the fire hall and are
at hand day and night to answer all
alarms.
In fact, all the work of the department has been of a volunteer nature,
not the least or which has been done
In manuel labor of a very few, and
lt Ib not surprising If In ignorance
of what has been accomplished by individual efforts those who have been
asked to subscribe money may not
be . fully aware of tho work and
effort put In to secure tho results attained to date, and wo feel that n
digest of this report, published In
some form for tho benefit of the public, will tell thorn more than they
have  had  opportunity  to  learn of
I*
how their property and liveB are being protected, and we believe draw
forth a generous support of the lire
department.
We also advise putting) iu of a
floor in the upper portion of the
fire hall for the holding of public
meetings,   wliere   the   Chamber   of
,The property consists of, Fire
Commerce and of.ier bodies could
have a place, of meeting without trespassing as now, on the comfort and
generosity of ofllces or gathering
places of other social bodies, etc.
In conclusion, we advise*-the taking over of all apparatus of the
department, funds, etc., hy the
Chamber of Commerce, to be.administered by that body, all bills and
accounts to be entered into and settled for by that body, on the approval only of ils executive board; all
funds collected to be turned over to
It and acknowledged by it, and if possible, some method of regular revenue be devised for the expense and
upkeep.
We would call attention to the
growing importance of the town, and
the necessity of best protection possible under our conditions of lack of
water supply, Up to this time we
have managed to check any serious
conflagration, but it is patent to all
with any experience that our present
equipment would bo of little or no
use should a serious fire break out
In the thickly settled portions of the
town.
We have also enterde into negotiations with Mr. Brown, of the electric
light company, for the installation
of six electric fire alarm boxes, if
the cost of same is not too great.
Anticipating the possibility of our
needing a larger engine we have aUo
isked for tenders for a double tank
combination chemical engine and
hook and ladder.    All of which Is,
Respectfully  submitted,
J. R. CAMPBELL,
H 4Wi GRO«S, 9
J. FLYNN,
The following resolution was
adopted:
Whereas it has been announced
that the provincial government has
determined on the sale of its lots
in South Kort George and neighboring district;
Be it resolved, tbat in behalf of
the business interests and people of
South Kort George, we submit to the
Hon. R. W. Ross, minister of lands,
Victoria, B.C., the following resolution, asking for his favorable consideration of the same:
Subject—Government sale of lots
in South Kort George, B. C,
The people of South Fort George,
B. C, business men and citizens generally, make petition through their
Chamber of Commerce, tbat in the
forthcoming sale of government property in this town, some mutually
ben-licial plan he adopted that persons who have settled on and improved government properly, while
waiting date of sale, have first opportunity of purchnse.
Early Settling
Conditions confronting early settlers forced the occupancy of government lots, especially those on the
lower portion of the town, along the
Kraser river In the business section.
tt so "happened that government property was so centrally located and
adjacent to business blocks, and the
growth of population soNrapid, and
the business of the town exceeding
the most, sanguine expectations that
space left for settlement after the
government selection, was so situated
by natural condition, that people
were practically forced to occpy government land.
Government Notified of Squatting
The department was advised of the
squatting going on, and was sought
to prevent the practice, but the government, after consideration, appears
not to have been Insympathy with
the movement, took no action, giving the Impression of sanctioning
thereby Inviting many valuable Improvements.
Government Requested to Sell
The government lot settlers have
taken no small part In making the
town successful, and on a number of
occasions have asked the government to sell the lots so that they
might secure title and proceed on a
moro solid basis ln promoting the
welfare nnd prosperity of the town
and district.
Hardship on Settlers anil the Town
We feel it would work a hardship
of no small degree, rtot only on the
settlers on government lots, but to
the town at large, if, after all the
improvements and businesses which

THEIR WINTER SERVICE
Victoria,    Feb.    23—(Special.) —
The provincial government's railway
i
policy   will   be   introduced    in    the
legislature on  Tuesday .or Wedncs-t
day. _*!
It includes a plan for the Immediate extension of the Pacific Grpat
Eastern into the Peace' River district.
It Ib understood that a new contract is to be signed with Folejt
Brothers, Welch and Stewart tor the
construction of a road approximately
330 miles in length running north
from Kort George, and entirely traversing the Peace River country
through the Pine River Pass. It
will reach the easterly boundary of
the province.
Work on this extension must he
started within three months of the
passage of the bill by the legislature,
and the line is to be completed within two years.
' It' is expected that eventually »
branch will be constructed some-
where about the Parsnip Rl»er connecting with the new railway system
of Alaska.
The plan is to turn looseon the new
road the large number* of men wl"j
will bo released when .the. Grand
Triink Pacific is completed.
The railway policy also lncludet
a plan lo expedite the construction
of the Pacific Great Eastern from
Kort George south. By AUfUit the
contractors expect to have the iteel
laid from Squamlsh to Clinton. A
big effort is to be made to get the
whole grade between Clinton and
Kort George under way thii fall W
that it may be ready for the steel In
the spring of 1915. In the autumn,
too, a big gang is to be placed on the
heavy work between Squamlsh and
Vancouver, so that when the trains.

may come straight into Cancouver.  .'.'

Ottawa, Keb. It.-—An Innovation
was introduced in the railway committee yesterday afternoon, which, if
it succeeds in becoming law in connection" with the bill affected, will
form an important precedent with
regard to measures contemplating
the building of rai'ways. There has
been a growing impression of recent
years that railway companies should
show an inclination at the earliest
possible date to start and complete
the construction of lines approved
by parliament, and, in addition to
this, there should be fewer extensions granted in cases where this enterprise is not shown.

having the mall contracts are compelled to carry the mail from Ashcroft to this part at all seasons of the
vear and are, indeed, very fortunate
to have at their disposal an equipment so complete as that sold them
by the B. X. f'o.
The summer service of autos and
5t earners will be run by the B. X. Co.
is in former years and It is' probable
that the Inland Co. will make some
arrangement with them to carry the
mails in summer.
Mr. West, the manager of the B.
X. Co., is highly elated with the new-
plans and states that as far as his
company was concerned the arrangements were entirely satisfactory.

foothills, moved that the time for
commencing construction be changed
from two yens to one year, and for
completion from five years to three
years. Despite considerable objection, the motion was carried, and the
bill thus amended was reported.
There are Indications that similar
amendments will be moved ln all
bills coming up in the future of a
like nature.

th, government, seeing the rehired fifty-one per cent, of the pro

That petition wm refused by the

„evej by some that ihe refusal was
due to the tact ••"•■ »" "^Plication
had been made for a private bill In-
-OTonuni the vhole area ot
dealer Foil George. II is held by
otners, and this view is substantiated
b) the stalements of the attorney-
general, that it is not ihe wish oi the
government to incorporate any one
part of Greater Fort George alone.
In lact, Mr. Bowser has stated that
r,0 ijetitions io this end ivill be received until the| various elements
represented here come with a joint
ttijucBt iu iiie- government.
; .;,. late, ihe position at the
present time is that neither South
,-o,i George i»r Fort George seems
by way of securing incorporation.
The Chamber of Commerce, last
week, considered the question of
Joint incorporation and gave it very-
lull discussion. It was the unanimous dcciBion of thc executive that
the matter of incorporation, so far
ai South Fort George is concerned,
was still in the hands of the committee appointed by the people, and that
this committee should he allowed to
deal with It.
One of the outstanding problems
In tho situation Is the tact that even
lu the event of a joint petition to
incorporate, the Grand Trunk Pacific
which owns Prince George townsite,
will no doubt hold out for tern.)-,
most advantageous (o It. From the
terms on which lhc railway company
sold its lots in that townsite, it will
be three years before the G.T.P. influence will cease to control the
situation regarding incorporation, as
the registered owner has all the say
in lhat matter, and the G. T, P. will

Ever since (he days when Old Cariboo was all there was ie British Columbia, when Barkerville was the
greater city, with its gold production, attracting the attention of the
civilized world, it has been the dream
of our sturdy pioneers that some
day in the dim, distant future a railway would invade our midst anil
bring with it all the great benefits
that usually accompany such a deserving enterprise, And while many
have passed away, dreaming in vain,
yet we feel grateful to think that
there have been a few of us left to
enjoy in our old days seeing this
life's dream an actual reality.
Although the trains are yet; a little
irregular, in a few weeks' time we
expect regular service.
But the point we wish to illustrate
is that when this is completed it will
connect all the groat cities in the
west with Kenneily-Blair's Store.
We have just taken stuck and have
on hand one hundred and eighty
nine thousand two hundred and
twenty dollars and nine cents in general iieerchand'se,
This does not include the pump or
the fresh uir, but consists of the
greatest line of general merchandise
ever shipped into Central B.C.
We are speci; lining in men's wear,
women's wear, hardware and gran-
iteware.
We appeal especially to the railway
contractors. If you are going to
dig the P.G.E. irom here to Quesnel this spring don't go to half a
dozen stores to get sufficient to
complete your order, but come direct to Kennedy-Blair's, where we
can supply you with camp stoves
and everything in kitchen granit-
wure from butter patties to soup
tureens and have still plenty left fur
our customers.
We have also large quantities of
hay and Ions of the most delicious
oats ever set before a dumb animal.
We are giving special priccB in c;r
loud lots and inleiul to meet all competition.

Victoria, Feb. 23.—(Special.)—
|Tb0 provincial government's railway
■policy will be introduced in the
||CI!ifilature on Tuesday or Wednea-
Iday. ,
It Includes a plan for the immediate extension of the Pacilic Great
Eastern into the Peace River district.
It la understood that a new contract is to be signed with Foley
Brothers, Welch and Stewart for the
construction of a road approximately
330 miles in length running north
from Fort Qeorge, aod entirely traversing the Peace River couotry
through the Pine River Pass. It
will reach the easterly boundary of
the province.
Work ou this extension must be
Ltarted within three months of the
paBaage of the bill by the legislature,
Ld the lino Is to be completed within two years.
It It expected that    eventually   a
branch will be constructed    somewhere about the Parsnip River con-
Inecting with the new railway system
( Alaska.
The plan is to turn loose on the new
ou.i the large numbers of men who
be released when the Grand
runk l>aciflc Is completed.
The railway policy also includes
plan to expedite the construction
I ihe Pacific Great Eastern from
'ort George south. By Augjist the
nntractora expect to have tbe steel
aid from Squamlsh to Clinton. A
Ig effort Is to be made to get the
[rtole grade between Clinton and
'ort Qeorge under way tbis fall so
;hat It may be ready for the steel in
he spring of 1915. In the autumn,
.oo. a big gang Is to be placed on the
navy work between Squamlsh and
ancouver, so tbat when the trains
■tin aouth from Fort George they
,a>- come straight Into Cancouver.
