SOUTH FORT GEORGE, B.C., NOVEMBER 5, 1910.

FINANCIERSTAKEHOLD
WINNIPEG CAPITALISTS PREDICT BRIGHT
FUTURE FOR SOUTH PORT GEORGE
-ACQUIRE LARGE INTERESTS
The Winnipeg capitalists who arrived here last
week from Fraser Lake with N. S. ularke, general
manager of the Fort George Lumber & Navigation
Co., left for Ashcroft by the Chilco on Monday
morning last. Both gentlemen declare themselves
greatly impressed with the beauty of the South
Fort George townsite, and with the possibilities of
the place as the present and future commercial
centre of the Fort George territory. Before leaving town they closed negotiations with N. S. Clarke
to acquire a half interest in the Fort George
Lumber & Navigation Co., the largest commercial organization of its kind operating in the northern interior today. It is understood that the name
of the company will be changed to the Fort George
Timber & Transportation Co., Limited.
J. A. Adamson is the managing'director of the
Western Trust Co., of Winnipeg, a director of the
United Empire Fire Insurance Co., and his name
appears on many other boards, as a factor in the
government of heavy financial enterprises. Dr. J.
K. McLennan, secretary-treasurer of the J. D. Mc-
Arthur Company, of Winnipeg, the well-known
firm of railway contractors, is also a prominent
figure in the financial circles of the middle west.
The J. I). McArthur Company were awarded the
largest individual contract on the construction on
the transcontinental, which extended from Winnipeg to the Great Lakes,
The purchase of the large interest in the
Fort George Lumber & Navigation Company by
these capitalists, for a large figure, speaks volumes
in favor of this place. Such investments as this
find their bssis on the solid foundational' the city
of South Fort George. All the two-color advertising matter ever printed would not influence one
iota the amount of capital required to take over
a half interest in ;--;:ch an enterprise as the Fort
George Lumber & Navigation Company.
This concern own three steamboats operating on
the Fraser river, capable by combined effort, of
transporting about two hundred and fifty thousand
pounds of freight at one time. Besides these boats
there is now well advanced in course of construction a splendid sawmill, with a capacity of 25,000
feet a day. This mill is equipped with the latest
wood-working machinery and ample power to supply the town with electric light, which is a project
also under contemplation by the company.
In addition to the investments of capital h the
Lumber & Navigation Co., which was the object in
view which brought these capitalists into the wilds,
we are glad to note their personal investments in
city property here. Mr. Adamson purchased outright one of the best corners in town, together with
the lot adjoining. This property is situated on the
corner of Second and Hamilton avenues and was
sold by W. J. Mackay of The Herald for two thousand dollars. Dr. McLennan also purchased three
lots on Hamilton and Third from L. G. MacHaffie
for twenty-five hundred dollars. Both these
sales show an advance of fifty per cent, over their
original price six months ago.
J. A. Adamson, in conversation with The Herald,
stated that South Fort George "looked good to
him.'' He stated that the northern interior country was, in his opinion, a splendid agricultural country which, during the next live years, would see
marvellous strides in both agricultural and industrial development.
Accompanied by N. S. Clarke, the Manitobans
journeyed over the tr,ail from Quesnel to Fraser
Lake, a point some 250 miles west of here up the
Nechaco valley, where they looked over some land
holdings, which they have recently acquired. From
Fraser Lake they made their way to this point by
canoe, down the Nechaco river.
The Fort George Lumber & Navigation Company
will discontinue all operations early next month
until next spring, with the exception of logging
outsome five million feet of timberfornext year.
Arthur Holland, the Provincial land surveyor,
arrived this week from the Crooked River, where
he has been surveying land for the G. T. P. Lands
Co., of Vancouver, since May of the present year.
Mr. Holland had a crew of nine nun with him. tne
party had to break ice on the small lakes along
Crooked River on their way out to Giscombe.
A complimentary dinner was tendered the officers and crew of the B. X. by the residents of
South Fort George and adjoining townsites, last
Saturday evening, at the newly opened Hotel
Northern. The event took the nature of a Thanksgiving offering at the resuscitation of this fine
river boat from her recent mishap, which at one
time looked as though a resumption for this year
would be out of the question. Any other company
but this "admirable clock of precision" would have
foregone the two trips made after the accident
and berthed the boat for the winter. But the B.X.
Co. is a system with a "system," brought to perfection through fifty years' mastery of detail on the
longest and best stage line in existence. And furthermore, the officers of this new boat have imbibed the principles of the land chain of the old organization by bringing up to South Fort George,
on her last trip of the season, the largest tonnage
ever carried on the Fraser, above Soda Creek
ninety tons. This enterprise on the part of the
transportation company led the philanthropic merchants to heroic deeds, which resulted in grouping
the officers and crew in the dining room of our prohibition hotel, and in dry wit, dry song and still
drier toasts, made plain their appreciation of their
efforts at the termination of navigation for 1910.
The toast list ran the gamut from Our Friendly
Townsites to The Press. With the former were coupled the names of J.'Williamson and J. T. Carter.
Both these gentlemen were envoys extraordinary
from adjoining suburbs, the Hudson's Bay and
Central Fort George. The representative of the
Honorable Adventurers, spoke touchingly and feelingly of the hardships encountered by bold navigators on the Fraser from the time of Simon Fraser
down to Captain Brown, but he lamented the fact
that a wave was creeping over the country that had
for its ultimate object the dethroning of an admirable aid to social felicity.
Among those present were: Captain O^F. Brown,
Captain Baker, Purser Stewart Adamson, Engineer
Heay, J. A. Davis, W. Kennedy, R. Peden, Malcolm McNevin, L. G. MacHaffie, J. Munro, P. A.
Landry, J F Templeton, F O'Flaherty, H C Seaman, J B Daniell, J Findlay, A Forrest, D Brewster, F J Johnston, J Williamson, G E Bowes, H B
Close and J T Carter. W J Mackay acted as chairman who, after three hours spent with song, music and story, brought the dry banquet to a close
with the unanimous sentiments of those present —
"Glad to have met, sorry to part, but glad to see
you here May 1, 1911."
The subdivision of lot 932 by the Calgary Land
Company forms the latest addition to the townsite
lands here. Lot 932 is the western half of a preemption owned by a native half-breed named James
Bird. For some reason his pre-emption was divided into two parts some three years ago and lot
numbers assigned to each. The Calgary Company's
half contains 80 acres. The size of the lots is 25
to 28 feet in width by 120 feet deep, the blocks
being bisected by 16-foot alleyways between the
lots. The property is a good one, but will hardly
see much active development until the-Hudson's
Bay land is sub-divided, together with lot 931,
owned by the Northern Development Company.
Admitting that the property is worth the prices
asked from a speculative standpoint, we fail to see
why the Calgary Land Company should find it necessary to follow the example of the promoters of
doubtful properties and misrepresent facts in its advertising literature. This concern "plays to the
gods" by advertising with great multi-colored folders embellished with enormous type styles and the
old hackneyed phrases about opportunity banging on
the panels," etc., etc. One folder (three feet by two)
prints some "indisputable reasons why Fort George
is destined to become a large city." Accompany-
these reasons are illustrations purporting to show
agricultural lands in this district, whereas they represent farms between Soda Creek and Quesnel, 100
miles south of here. The Calgary Land Company
have secured one of the best subdivisions here. It
adjoins the Indian reserve on the south, about half
way along the southern boundary. They paid for
the property the highest acreage price yet realized
on townsite property here. Taking these facts into
consideration it seems unnecessary to exaggerate.
The weather the past fall has been a chapter of
revelations to those who were of the opinion that
the district was chilly in October. Here is what J.
P Flynn, a carpenter, says of the tenth month in
year in South Fort George: "1 have worked in Alberta for nine years and on the Crow in British
Columbia for two years, but this is the first October I have worked outside without using gloves."
THATPURCHASEDTITLE
THE BARGAIN FOUND TO INCLUDE THE
PUBLIC'S MAIL CONVENIENCES TO
THE PUBLIC'S DETRIMENT
When the Natural Resources Security Company
purchased from the original owners their subdivision on the Nechaco waterfront they purchased also
the registered name of Fort George, the exclusive
right to use which in connection with a British Columbia townsite they obtained by legal procedure,
under the act which governs townsite registration.
They christened the waterfront addition with the
name given to the Hudson's Bay post here a hundred years back by the pioneers of the great trading company's New Caledonia brigade, and blazoned the fact abroad that they possessed the registered legal townsite of Fort George—which helped
them to sell lots of lots.
When Postoffice Inspector J. R. Greenfield arrived
here in August to look into departmental matters,
he found a town and a townsite. He established
a postoffice in both places and named them after
the registered names of the subdivisions on which
they were located, Fort George or the townsite of
the Natural Resources Co., and South Fort George
for the town on the Fraser river.
The general public are not aware of these nice
distinctions which identify the centre of population
from the maze of houseless streets on the Nechaco
river. They recognize only Fort George, the name
of a Hudson's Bay post which, like many another
of that company's old fur trade posts chosen years
ago, is destined to become a great city through the
advent of railroad transportation, which will develop the dormant resources convergent to the
point. When they want to reach their friends by
mail here, or when they desire information regarding this place they address their communications to
Fort George, of course. To avoid having the mail
intended to reach citizens of the town of South
Fort George, carried to the postoffice on the Nechaco river which distributes mail matter to the
employees of the Natural Resources Co., hitherto
the postmaster from that point has accompanied
their hotel bus to the postoffice here where, after
the mail had been received, at the mail boat landing, a general sorting by both postmasters would
be made and the mail intended for the townsite
company's minions would go forward intact. This
was an arrangement which proved most satisfactory. The public here were not inconvenienced by
such a method, and their mail was not delayed by
being carried four miles further after reaching its
destination to satisfy a townsite company who want
to have a separate mail from this town altogether,
knowing that their "postoffice," without such a
service, was but a sub-office and was not a good advertisement for the ' 'legal registered townsite of
Fort George."
At last, however, the service has been rudely
disrupted by the granting of this separate service.
Recently the postmasters of both towns received
notification from the postoffice inspector to the effect that after date all mail matter addressed to
the two towns would go forward in separate sacks
made up strictly in accordance with the addresses.
This service went into effect last Saturday on the
arrival of the mail boat "B.X." South Fort George
received one mail sack of letter mail and a few papers, whilst the postmaster from the townsite carried away the bulk of the people's mail to his eyre
on the Nechaco heights where, after disintegrating
the mail intended for that office from the great
bulk of the mail intended for this point, but
addressed to Fort George, it was returned here for
distribution. In the meantime the banks, business
men and citizens in general of the bona fide town
here sat whistling for their mail, awaiting the indulgence of the postoffice which handles the mail
for the Natural Resources people and the few "business houses" that are located on their site, owing
to "inducements" held out by that company.
This is where we butt in.
The Herald has told its readers all about the
townsites hereabouts, without diverging one jot
from the path of truthfulness, So, we have done
our duty. We pare not how many hundreds of lots
the Natural Resources people sell to the trusting
public, providing that the public repose their trust
in a proposition that they thoroughly understand.
We are trying to help them to this desirable information.
But now for the second time this year the town-
site people are interfering with a matter which af-

CITY AND DISTRICT
The road gangs having completed
their work on the Mud River road came
into town this week. Koad work will
be discontinued until the early spring.
Malcom McNevin, the superintendent,
is to be commended for the work he has
accomplished during the past season.
The steamer Chilco arrived from the
Cottonwood Canyon on Monday last
loaded to the guards with freight. She
left again early on Tuesday morning for
Soda Creek, taking down about thirty
passengers, mostly surveyors. The
Chilco will continue to run until the actual freeze-up ban's her progress. N.
S. Clarke, manager of the company, informed us that the boat is carrying her
equipment, for pulling out on to the
ways, aboard, and that if ice is met she
will return to Quesnel and be hauled
out for the winter.
Several lots have changed hands this
week for good figures, the transfers
principally being on Fourth street.
This is due to the proposed buildings
which will be erected on this street before next summer. Amongst those
planned are J. A. Eraser's store at the
corner of Fourth and Laselle, the Traders' Bank of Canada, at the corner of
Hamilton and Fourth; a theatre, next
to the Burns' building, and a drugstore
and numerous other buildings. Indications point to a main business street
running along Second street to Laselle
avenue, up this avenue to Fourth street
and down Fourth to the mail boat landing.
Pete Landry, of the engineering firm
of Gore & McGregor, left on Monday
last for Quesnel with a party of men to
survey a block of land up the Quesnel
river. Mr. Landry will return here in
about a month.
A dam has been made across the
slough on the Hudson's Bay land for
the purpose of raising the water to
make a skating rink.
C. Dake, one of the associates of
John Houston in the founding of the
Nelson Tribune, committed suicide at
Prince Rupert on October 16. He went
to Nelson in tho early nineties.
The British Columbia & Dawson Railway company's application to the Dominion government for incorporation
embraces the proposal to build from
Lytton along the Fraser river to Fort
George, to a crossing of the Nechaco
river at the mouth of the Stewart river,
following same by way of Stewart lake,
Thatcher river, Trembleurlake, Middle
river, North Tada lake, Driftwood
river, Bear lake, passing through Fort
Conley, thence along valley of Skeena
river to summit between Skeena and
Stickeen rivers, down the Stickeen to
Telegraph creek, thence up Telegraph
creek to the headwaters of Teslin river
and into the city of Dawson; also from
Ashcroft to the Fraser river near
where Big creek enters that river; also
from point near Lillooet along the south
side of Seaton and Anderson lakes, and
via Lillooet lake and river and Harrison
le ;e to Vancouver.
The snow has fallen. After the beautiful weather of the Indian summer, so
abruptly terminated by Wednesday's
snow storm, we are at last obliged to
face the stern realization of the fact
winter is upon us. This snow will stay.
The mild fall weather continues, however, and although the temperature is
a little too low to allow the snow to
thaw we anticipate two or three weeks'
open navigation on the Fraser before
the freeze up.
John A. Fraser, the well-known merchant of Quesnel, has let a contract for
the building of a splendid store here.
The work is to commence shortly and
the building is to be completed before
the arrival of the first boat in the
spring. Mr. Fraser, who represents
this section of Cariboo in the Legislative Assembly, is one of the most successful business men in the district. He
came to Cariboo some twenty-five years
ago as a school teacher. The late Senator James Reid took him into his mercantile and manufacturing business as
manager, which position he held for fifteen years, resigning to enter into business himself in Quesnel. J. A. Fraser
has always thoroughly appreciated the
importance of South Fort George as a
coming centre of industry and we are
glad to note his intention of entering
into business here.
