Supreme Court has submitted a

He decides that the Hindus

TRIED TO ROB BANK
Four Masked Men Foiled in   Attempt to Break Into Branch
of B. N. A. at Agassiz
Vancouver, November 27.—
(Special)— Four masked men
made an attempt on Tuesday afternoon to rob the* branch of the
Bank of British North America,
at Agassiz. Their plan was fius-
trated by the quickness and presence of mind of A. C. Webster, a
customer of the bank, who met
the men as he was leaving the
building.
Webster slammed the door in
the faces of the robbers and braced it with his body. The men
fired several shots at him through
the door, but failed to hit him.

Sydney R. Fay, a real estate
man from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, reached South Fort George
last week after an exciting trip
from the end of steel on foot, and
will go into the realty business
here. Describing his journey, to
the Herald, Mr. Fay said:
"Leaving   Edmonton   at  9:30
o'clock in the evening, after but
one hour's stop in that city, wc
retired early and when we awoke
on Sunday    morning    our train
was    rapidly    approaching    the
heart of the Rocky    mountains.
The route of the Grand Trunk
lies along the valley of the Fraser  river,   which it follows   for
over   350   miles;   all   railways
through the Rockies must follow
a river valley.    On either    side
from the car an excellent   view
was obtainable. Mountains whose
snowclad peaks seemed to pierce
the very clouds themselves towered majestically above us,   and
Mount Robson, rising upward to
a height of nearly    15,000   feet,
m'ade a picturesque sight indeed.
"All day we sped through the
mountains and at 6:40 p. m. arrived at Mile 145,   the    second
crossing of the Fraser river. Here
we spent the   night, and in  the
morning.   I boarded a construction train bound for the end   of
steel.    From Mile 145 west the
railway is still in the hands of
the    contractors, but operations
are being   rushed to completion,
and it is expected that by March
the contractors will have turned
over the operation of the road as
far west as Fort George to the
G. T. P.  The splendid character

of the roadbed formed the sub
ject for much favorable comment
among the passengers and undoubtedly the Grand Trunk will
be a fomidable competitor for
western traffic.
"Our ride on the construction
trains was necessarily slow as we
were   compelled to make   many
stops along the line, leaving supplies at the various camps.      It
was   growing   dusk   when   we
reached Mile 183, the end of steel,
and began our 54-mile hike.   No
less than 20 people left the train
at this terminus bound for Fort
George.   I joined a party of four
other bickers and that afternoon
we reached camp   at   Mile   186
where we spent the night.   Rising   early   next   day   we   again
shouldered our baggage, and  we
reached Mile 195 for dinner.  We
rested there the remainder of that
day and on Wednesday morning
walked as far as Mile 202 where
we had dinner and a short rest.
That night we arrived at   Mile
214, where we spent the night.
We reached South Fort George
on Friday about noon, tired, but
nevertheless anxius to catch the
first glimpse of the coming city
of Prince George.
"Prince George now represents
much the same appearance that
Saskatoon did about seven years
ago, excepting that at this early
stage the future of Prince George
is already guaranteed and unquestioned,"

The grading undertaken by the

HUNTING SEASON
TAKES HEAVY TOLL
ATHABASCA RIVER
BV DECEMBER 1
Steelhead on E. D. & B. C, Being
Rapidly Pushed Forward—
Men Now Available.
Victoria, Nov. 12.—The output
of tlie metalliferous mines of
British Columbia for 1913 will at
least equal, if it does not surpass,
that of any year in the history
oi the province, according to W.
Fleet Robertson, provincial mineralogist, who returned to Victoria yesterday after an absence
of four weeks.
"The output of last year was
the highest attained in mining
annals of the province," said Mr.
Robertson yesterday, "and I believe that the production will be
not less this year, if, indeed, it is
not materially larger than that of
any former year."
The total value of the yield of
placer gold last year was $555,-
500, as compared with $426,000
in 1911, and surpassed the output
of any year since 1908. While
the exact value of the yield in the
past year will not be available for
several weeks, it is estimated at
something over $500,000.
"The placer gold production is
only an item in the mineral output of the province," said Mr.
Robertson, "and it has been
steadily diminishing, with but
few fluctuations, fo neraly forty
years. It reached its high mark
in 1868, when the output was valued at $3,491,205, and has not
passed the millon mark since
1904.
"The production of lode mines,
on the other hand, has been
steadily rising, and last year the
output was greater than has ever
before been recorded, as far as
quantity goes, while the value
was also in excess of all previous
years, with the exception of thc
banner year of 1906, when it was
about $100,000 in excess of last
ve„/s yield value.
Ottawa, Nov. 20.—There was
an increase of nine per cent, in
the number of new arrivals in
Canada during the first seven
months of the fiscal year, April

Of the arrivals 128,868 came

ures were 300,841; 118,497, I0°.
140 and 82,204, compared respectively.
For the month of October
alone there has been a notable
decrease in the number of arrivals, the total being 27,192 as
compared with 30,646 for the
same period last year.
The decrease is no doubt partly
due to the fact that owing to
present conditions, the immigration department is not encouraging artizans to come to Canada.

steelhead of the Edmonton, Dunvegan & British Columbia railway will reach the Athabasca
river by December 1 of this
year," said a well-known engineer last night.
"I met three contractors at
Mirror Landing who had just
made a trip over the line from
Mile 93, the present head of the
steel to Mirror and they told me
that the company which has been
compelled to stop the laying of
steel owing to the fact that they
were unable to get men to work
on the steel gang at $2.50 per
day are now in a position to go
ahead, having made satisfactory
arrangements with the men, and
that there was a large gang then
at steelhead and that the operations would be continued immediately. The grade, I was told, was
completed to within two miles of
the point where the railway company will cross the Athabasca,
and it is the opinion of these contractors that steel will reach the
river not later than December 1,
and trains should be running by
the first of the year."

The site chosen is on the cast
side of Aldermere lake, where
thc provincial agricultural department has secured sufficient
land from George Driver for thc
purpose. A meteorological station has also been established
there, where weather observations will be taken daily throughout the year. A better location
than the one selected would be'

SLICE OP DUKE'S ESTATE
Ottawa, Nov. 22.—When Premier Borden is on his way back
to Canada from Virginia Hot
Springs, early in December, he
will stop off at Washington and
pay his respects to the British
ambassador, Sir Cecil Spring-
Rice. They are old friends.
j There has been some speculation
regarding the premier's visit to
Washington, the statement being
made that he will confer with
President Wilson regarding various matters, such as the fi.sher-
ies, in which the two countries
are interested. Mr. Borden may
see the United States president
while in Washington, but there
is no intention of entering into
these questions. They will be
left to thc ministers immediately
concerned.
Mr. Borden is reported to have
regained his normal health.
Ottawa, Nov. 20.—The red
man of Canada shows no signs
of following his American brother
to the "happy hunting grounds"
of their forefathers. In other
words, the Indians of Canada are
increasing and becoming industrious, intelligent, moral, self-reliant and self-respecting citizens.
This is the outstanding feature
of the report of thc department of
Indian affairs just issued. The
Indan population of Canada is
given as 106,490, as against 104,-
960 at the end of the fiscal year.

GROWING PAINS
Soutii Foit Georee has never
as yet experienced what is
known as a boon. A boom i„
something that is not quite
healthy—a growth that is bound
sooner or later to be followed by
reaction.
Just the same this town has in'
the past year seen exceedingly
rapid development, and today
like all healthy and hardy ytiong
stcrs, South Fort George is af*
flieted, more or less, and fronj
time to time, with growing pains.
This week one of the enterprising citizens of tbe town sat hinj
down to figure out just how
much the town had grown since
January i, 1913, without going
into the question of bank clearings, customs returns, postoffice
reports, and that sort of thing.
He confined himself entirely to
the ground of new businesses
that liav*^ sprung up since the
date mentioned. He was inter-
nmted before he had complet'-fl

This may not look so very impressive to thc sophisticated city

Smithers, Nov. 22,—Although
only three months old, this town

bia and the prospects are excellent. Jack Aldous, who has
played on two Allan cup winning
teams, is oe of the star men who

president; W. S. Henry, vice-
president; A. O. Soring, secretary-treasurer.
The Duncan Ross cup, which
carries with it the amateur championship of the northern part of
the province, on the west end, is

SMALL BEGINNINGS
AND GREAT ENDS
The Great Things of the World
Have Not Been Done by Men
of Large Means.
Here is a list of the methods
employed by poor men who became great by making the most
of their opportunity:
Ericsson began   the   construction of the screw propellers  in a
bathroom.    The cotton gin was
lirst manufactured in a log cabin.
John Harrison, the great inventor of a marine chronometer, began his career in thc loft of an old
barn.    Parts of the first steamboat ever run  in America were
set up in the vestry of a church
in Philadelphia by Fitch.     Mc-
Cormack began to make his famous reaper in a grist mill.    The
first model drydock was made in
an attic.   Clark, the founder   of
Clark University of   Worcester,
Mass., began his great    fortune
by making toy wagons in a horse
shed.   Karquhar made umbrella'
in   his    sitting-room    with    his
daughter's   help   until   he   sold
enough to hire a loft.   Edison began his experiments in a baggage
Icar on the Grand Trunk railroad
when a newsboy.
Don't miss your opportunity to
start in thc beginning of what
has made more large fortunes
than anything else in the world.

m TIMUin i  >-'*•.-'	
A striking example of the necessity of improvements in the
methods of cleaning timothy seed
ran be seen in the following lig-
ures which arc published by the
Dominion Seel Laboratory, Calgary, "here a number of samples
were' tested for farmers and merchants.
The samples in almost    every
case were of exceptionally    tin
quality and had they been properly cleaned would rank amongsj
the first on the market.
The suitability of many part:
of Alberta and British Columbi;
for growing timothy for seed fa
unquestionable, and it is the iiij
tention of lhe governmenl
through the seed branch to assist
fanners in their methods of
handling   ami   marketing   their
seed.
Last year the Dominion Seed
Laboratory at Calgary examined
317 samples <>i timothy, of wliich
155 were received irom farmers,
135 of these came from Alberta,
I j from British Columbia, 8
from Manitoba and 1 from the
United States.
Of   317   samples   recived .278
were examined for weed    seeds
and graded a.s follows:
Extra No. 1, 7.
No. 1, 23.
No. 2, 99.
No. 3,54.
Rejected, 95.
Samples containing more than
80 noxious weed seeds or a total
of over 400 of all kinds of weed
seeds per ounce are rejected, and
arc prohibited from sale, under
section 9 of the Seed Control
Act,
Lambs quarters is by far the
most prevalent weed seed found
in western-grown timothy, occurring in 204 of the samples. Rough
cinquefoil is next, being found
in 138 samples. Other common
weed seeds are worm-seed mustard, gentian, yarrow, blue-eyed
grass, pepper grass, tower mustard, evening primrose, western
false flax, ball mustard, curl dock
and catch fly. Many of these
weed seeds could be easily removed from timothy by an ordinary fanning mill fitted with
the proper sieves.
Farmers having timothy seed
are invited to send samples to the
Seed Laboratory, Calgary, for
grading, or to receive information as to the proper sieves to be
used for cleaning their particular
seed.
Sample bags in which «ed
may be sent, as well as further
particulars in regard to taking
and sending samples, may be ;>ad
by sending a request to thc above
address.
Twenty-five samples of seed
will be tested free of charge for
any one party, after that 25 cents
a sample is charged.

In view of the

Montreal. In view of the work
, being undertaken by the
International Waterways Commission, the organization at
w|10Se meetings Hon. Mr. Ross
was a delegate from this prov-
incCi did not deem it wise to go
fully into the question of stream
illution at the present time   in
rder not to conflict with the deliberations of the international
commission.
The conference on stream pollution was called' by the Dominion government, the provinces
being asked to send representatives. A number of resolutions
were passed, a synopsis of them
being published in a coast paper
some weeks ago; By reason of
the fact that a great many
streams flow from Canada into
the United States and vice versa,
the conference members decided
not to touch upon the, international side of the pollution question, leaving this matter with
the International Waterways
Commission.
Hon. Mr. Ross states that the
subjects taken up at the conference are not as yet of serious
moment in this province.

grown, so that a promising sort
for their conditions may be selected.
Each application must be separate and must be signed by the
applicant. Only one sample of
grain and one of potatoes can be
sent to each farm. Applications
on any kind of printed form cannot be accepted. If two or more
samples are asked for in the same
letter only one will be sent.
As the supply of seed is limited,
farmers are advised to apply
early; but thc applications will
not necessarily be fillejcl in the
exact order in which they are received. Preference will always
•-"-given to the most thoughtful
and explicit requests. Applications received after t' : end ol
January will probably be too late.
A" applications for grain (and
applications from the provinces
of Ontaria and Quebec for pota-
t0(-s), should be addressed to the
Dominion Cerealist, Central Experimental Farm, Ottawa. Such
applications require no postage.
I| othewise addressed delay and

Applications,     for     potatoes,
from farmers in any other prov-
lnce should be addressed (post-

Do you realize the extent
of the gigantic resources of
Central and Northern British Columbia? This Province last year produced over
$12,000,000, or over $300 for
every man, woman and child
within her boundaries, and
that with only one railroad,
which hugs the United Staes
boundary ?Do ypu know that
up to now pratically seven-
eights of British Columbia
has been without railway
transportation? British Columbia today has a population of only one to the
square mile when it has
room and resources for
twenty times that number?
But British Columbia is
on the eve of a giant awakening. The first railway to
open the large Central and
Northern part of the Province is fast nearing completion. That railway is the G.
T. Pacific and trains are
now running from its Pacific Coast terminus, Prince
Rupert, as far East as
Smithers, the first freight
and passenger division headquarters, on its. main line
Through transcontinental
traffic will be established in
1914.
Smithers is the first Grand
Trunk Pacific freight and
passenger division point on
the main line after leaving
Prince Rupert, and the only
division point of this nature
between Prince Rupert and
Prince George. Lots in the
latter division point were offered at auction sales, held
in Vancouver and Edmonton. Two short three-day
sales brought nearly two
million dollars. This sale
set the highest record for an
auction sale on the Coast.
Smithers, like Prince
George, is a freight and passenger division headquarters
and a Grand Trunk Pacific
town. It is owned and offered by the railway company. It will have a large
station, shops, roundhouse
and other terminal improvements and division point facilities.
The railway company will
■pend over three hundred
thousand dollars in Smith-
rrs for its own' shops and
t h e r terminal improvements and division point fa-
ilities. It will employ over
.00 men here.
Smithers combines this
advantage of being an im-
jortant railway point on a
transcontinental railw a y
■/ith its commanding location as the dominating centre of the rich Bulkley Valley, which has over 300,000
acres of fertile agricultural
land and which is the first
large agricultural area on
lhe Grand Trunk Pacific
cast of Prince Rupert.
Smithers is in the centre of
a large and rich mineral belt.
Iii has abundant water power
ii close proximity. With the
opening of through transcontinental traffic and inevitable growth of Prince
Rupert, the Bulkley Valley
is bound to become that
city's chief source of food
supplies and Smithers its
chief supply point.
Smithers is one of the last
big opportunities in Western Canada. It is ready for
you now. It is the last big
opportunity in British Columbia on the Grand Trunk
Pacific. Moreover, Smithers is a permanent, thriving
community today. With less
than ten people in June,
Smithers today has over 450.
It has a bank, two newspapers, a sawmill, stores, business houses and homes.
Auuut 75 permanent, new
buildings are under construction.
Smithers combine the ad-
vatage of being the natural
distributing point for a large
rich district with that of
being a freight and passenger division headquarters of
a transcontinental railway.
You can judge how important Smithers is considered
by   the   railway   company
ien you realize that the
latter named it after 11s
highest official, Mr. Alfred
Waldron Smithers, Chairman of its Board of Directors.
Trains are now Running
— to Smithers	
If you wish to share in the prosperity that is bound
to come from the exploitation of the gigantic resources
of Central and Northern British Coh mbia when this vast
rich territory is opened to development by the Grand
Trunk Pacific, you will lose no time in investigating the
opportunity offered to you in Smithers today. Make your
decision now. The best locations are going fast. Every
train brings new settlers and new ethusiasm. Learn the
secret of the large fortunes made in the West—get a well
selected lot in a new permanent community before the railway conies. Then consider what a good location in Smithers will be worth when the rush of settlers which follows
in the wake of a new railway, tills this new city with a
large population. Call at our office and get fre, reliable,
descriptive literature about Smithers and Central British
Columbia, together with blueprint and pricel ist. Or fill
out the coupon and mail it today.

two selections by Mr. Maysoifl
The three solicitors, Messrl
Montgomery, Eckstein and Wilson, made ten-minute speeches!
and strangely en.nigh, as Mr.

them accused another of stealing
his speech. Fred Trudel gave a
selection from 11 Trovatore, anffl
Rev. Sadler, of the Church of
