SOUTH   FORT   GEORGE,   B.C.,   DECEMBER 16,   1911
The Presbyterian Church in
holding its service in South
Port George every Sunday at
,'i fi. in.
Frederick Burden, P. L. S.,
left here on Monday's stage for
the south after a busy season
of surveying near Fort George.
Mr. Burden will return in the
early spring.
The B. ('. Express Company's
statjes have entered upon a new
schedule here, coniniencing last
week.  In future the stages will
leave here on     Monday mornings and  will    arrive from  the
south on Saturdays. Thc mail
closes iiu six o'clock on Sunday.
Russel   Peden,   who has been
purchasing grain   in  the lower
Cariboo country   returned here
on  Wednesday   last.  Mr. Peden
states that the price of oats in
(lie Quesnel    country    is seven
cents a pound. Hay sells there
as high as $75 a ton. the Quesnel   ranchers     make hay   while
tbe sun shines, peddling it while
that luminous orb hides behind
wintry    clouds.   Their   day    i.
surely now, but think of all tin
yesterdays.   Next    year we  predict the price of hay will average 840 a ton.
A.   G. Hamilton    leaves   for
Stewart   Lake   today   on business connected with his store at
that place. Mr. Hamilton is one
of the pioneers of this town. He
is not a young   man, but has
kept    himself    in his   splendid
physical condition  by   exercise
nnd    regular    habits.     He can
handle a team    of horses with
lhe Ix'st of bis drivers, and will
cover the distances   of a drive
with records to his credit. Mr. '
Hamilton hns initiated a number of valuable additions to the
business houses of the interior
country, and is   planning new
ventures from day to day.
Over in   Hammondville   there
are new rumors   about station
sites. We have not heard what
the price was   supposed  to be
this time,  but  the   location is
believed to be somewhere near
the Foley Welch & Stewart land
west of the   townsite. Our advice to investors is not to lose
.iny sleep over Mr. Hammond's
prognostications about the lo-
t il ion   of    (he    future   station
grounds, There is a gentleman
named Judge   Mal.ee   who oc-1
i-upies the Chairmanship of the'
Railroad   Commission of Canada  who   will   locate the railroad station  here   in the right
place when the time comes.

There appears to be no con-
s.stanl reason to advance as to
why ant! wherefore South  Fort
George should    remain    in  the
state of a nondescript hamlet in
the hills of British Columbia's
hinterland.  We have reasonable
grounds to   look forward with
confident    anticipation    to     a
I tide of   prosperity    which will
come swishing through the Yel-
lowlvad Pass next year.  In the
second issue of the Fort Oeorge
; Herald, published in August of
last year,   we   dwelt upon the
necessity of   incorporating this
townsite into a    municipality,
At that time only preparatory
measures could    have been entered into regarding the subject,
but today we    are in   the fortunate position of having right
;   under the   laws   governing the
,  matter, to   incorporate   South
Fort Oeorge as a municipality,
There are   no    other townsites |
hereabouts    that    can   comply'
with  the    requirements    of the
act.
The    provincial    government
an- spending a lot of money in
the planting of more rose trees
round the capitol at  Victoria,
'■■ but they will not spend a cent
towards building sidewafks past
their vacant lots in South Fort
Oeorge.   They   are   apparently
satisfied      thi.it     South     Fort
George is a well cast cog in the
political machine,—a town with
a Conservative but no Liberal
association may be   so regard-
• ed— and they appear to ignore
,our requests for the few paltry
and    primal    necessities   of   a
: young town's   equipment, with
malice    aforethought.   Perhaps
; thus is rather   an   exaggerated
,' view of the situation, but when
a live community is retarded in
its progress by the negligeneies
of overworked   departments, it
is time for us to get together
and organize   towards governing the   destinies of   our own
j town by home rule.
The requirements for a com-
' inutility or area seeking incorporation are briefly as follows:
The policy cenc^rnint; municipal legislation continuously
followed by the legislature of
this province has been to give
What John Houston Said
as large as possible a measure
of local and self government to
municipal corporal ions, according to a   government    review,
and to facilitate   the incorpor-
poration of municipalities wherever wan-anted    by  population
and property. The general  legislation at present in force respecting municipalities    is contained in three statutes passed
during    the     session    of   1908,
and known as lhe .Municipal Incorporation Act,  the municipal
Flections Act, and the Municipal Clauses   Act,   and amendments, dealing respectively with
municipal incorporations, elections, government   and  internal
management, Adequate powers
in these acts conserve   the corporate rights, powers and liabilities of existing municipalities.

j    For months past  the  Herald
i has been   putting    forth  arguments against the lethagic attitude of the coast press and interests in face of the march of
events   which     are slowly   but
surely moving towards the loss
of  the  British  Columbia   Peace
River trade to Alberta, through
the neglect  of Vancouver business houses to protect themselves by    forcing   through communication   from  that city to
the Peace river. '
There appears Utile room to
doubt that Vancouver has even
now irretrievably lost the trad
,2,000 acres in area, may lie incorporated    by    letters   patent
upon   petition    signed   by  the
owners of more than   one half
in value of the lands within lhe
proposed boundaries,  if within
such boundaries there are present at the date of the lirst signature to the petition  not less
than one hundred male  British,
subjects of full agej and a township   or    distriet   municipality
upon petition by the like proportion   of    owners,   (including
holders of    pre-emptions of at
least one year's standing), if al
least, thirty British Subjects of |
full age have been residents of
the area proposed to be included in the municipality for at
least six months before the date
of the firsti signature to the petition. The act also contains elaborate provisions for securing
an  extension   or   reduction of
corporate 1 mils, and for securing the dissolution of a municipal corporation upon petition,
of the   ratepayers,   should circumstances rentier such a course
necessary.
There arc no requirements incumbent upon a community applying for incorporation that
South Fort George can not
comply with, therefore there appears to be no reason to longer
delay taking a step that is for
our own advancement.

if this section of the Northern
Interior   trade.   Next   year the
Edmonton   drummers   will   invade   this   territory    and  will
book   wholesale   orders for delivery   by steel  at   the  head  of
navigation on  the  Fraser,   md
by  the   new steamboats down
(lie great waterway direct and
uninterrupted    to     this   point.
How Vancouver   can hope   to
hold this trade with a 220 mile
waggon  road   hall  included in
tlf freight bills we fail utterly
to understand,
This thing has been self-evident for years, just as the fact
that Alberta is building a railroad into the Peace River to
make a great semicircle with
f|i' Pine River Pass as its extreme norl hern point, and |Fort
Georgo the terminus of its de
scent into B. ('., will drag more
trade away from the Pacilic terminus of   lhc   C,  P.  R.  unless
that  city   can rush  a railroad
to Fort   George,   which would
also derive   equal  benefit  with
Alberta   from     the    McArthur
Construction Company's road.
Al  present    there is   bill  one
cily    between     the    Yellowhead
Pass   and   Aldermere,    in   the
Bulkley   valley, a    distance of
■about 550 miles, following ihe
route of  the   (I. T. P. survey.
i There arc one or (wo lownsites

word,   excepting   South     Fort

Dome    Creek,   lot)  miles  upstream from  this    place promises to become a  live cominun-
ity. It   is   admirably   situated
to  attract    a  tourist   trade  by
(he beauty  of (he surrounding
scenery, and (hie splendid hiinl-
ing to be found in thai vicinity.
Dome Creek   is also situated
in the heart of the upper Fraser
limber country,   where a great
lumbering     industry   will   undoubtedly grow up.

In lhe Fort George Tribune of
February     Hllli.,    HUH,   John
Houston, lhe well known journalist  who  founded  thai   paper
and who died from exposure to
conditions his constitution was
unable   to     withstand     whilst
publishing thai journal,   wrote
the following article referring to
the initial venture of the Natural   Resources   Security Company Limited:
"A business man of Calgary,
Alberta, writes The Tribune under date of  February  Isl, asking "if the government of British  Columbia and  the .Natural
Resources Security Company of
Vancouver own   the    townsite
proper of   Fort    George"? The
answer is, No! The Natural Resources Security   Company acquired by   purchase sonic    700
acres of land, which is situated
al   lhe sunt',west corner of the
Indian Reserve,   and distant a
mile and  a   half    from   Fraser
River and a mile from the Nechaco River. The   government,
once land is used   for townsite
purposes, becomes the owner of
one fourth of the lots as a reversionary right. It is a provision in a general law passed in
1896 and    not a     partnership
specially entered    into between
the Natural Resources Security
Company and the Government
of the Province of British Columbia, a.s     the former would
- have the readers of its advertising literature believe.  Tiie land
in question,    iu  time,   may be-
come an inhabited part of Fort
Oeorge; but at the present time
il is a "wild-cat", and tiiu' 5,000
lots into which it has been subdivided have no selling value at
Fort George, but are being offered al    Calgary   and  in  hundreds of other distant places at
reds of other distant olgces at
from $150 to $300 each.  In the
opinion of   the   editor of   The
Tribune,  Fori  George will, for:
two or lliree years, he where it ,
is today, on 200 acres of Sand,
fronting on   Fraser   River and
not   a    mile   from    (he  located
line of lhe Orand Trunk Pacific
Railway   through      (he    Indian
reserve, ll    is, common opinion
al   Fori   Georgo   lhal   the railway company will purchase the
Indian reserve land, sonic 1,300
acres in all. make a port ion of
it a townsite and the remainder
railway yards.    The    Hudson's
Bay    Company    has   07   acres
lying between   lhe    Indian  Keserve   and     lhc  200   acres    on
which lhe lown is now building,
Adjoining     the   Hudson's Bay
Co.'s  07  acres    on   lhe   west   is
Bird's pre-empt ion of III) acres.
, These four tracts have a frontage of a mile     and a half on
i Fraser  river and    aboul    the
same on the Nechaco river, and
if sub-divided would   make 10,
000 town   lots and    leave the
railway 500 acres for yard pur-;
poses. Ten  thousand  town lots
is enough for a city of 20.000.

Next  week   comes Christ.mas.
There is nothing artificial about
Christinas in   this   region. The
local   color     is   commensurate
with the ideal Christmas of our
youth.  The   scenery     suggests
(hose regions   depicted    as the
territory of   Santa Claus himself, as he ranges over the snow
clad hills surrounded by cohorts
of capering imps, and propelled
by docile   reindeer.   In  this we
are I ii be envied, surely,  in so
far as    the     perfection     of the
scenic   surroundings  contribute
materially   toward   the Christinas    of   tradition,   coveted by
(he dwellers in the tropical central  latitudes of the two hem-
isispheres. The writer once spent
Christmas under the sweltering
sun of the tropic of Capricorn,
and looks back with amusement
at memories of drill-clad north-
oners    sipping   sticky   anisette
under an awning,   waiting for
the cool of    the night-time to
gather energy enough to celebrate their perverted Christmas,
of   memories  so   diametrically
opposed (o their surroundings.
This will also be a Christmas
. of turkeys,     and    other    good
' things to    eat  and   drink, imported by our enterprising merchants   over a     three hundred
mile waggon     road,    in order
that we may leave little to imagination  in  the celebration of
tl"J3 festive     season;  which    all
goes to show the march of progress and development in South
Fort George.
The   bar-keep is     ready   for
concentrated    action.    The jail
will be locked and the key hung
up for the day. The snow flakes
Hitter down gently and silently
, in  the correct  manner for descent, and although    we are at
present deprived of the music of
church  bells,    the churches are
f here antl are equipped with bel-
, fries, so this   item of stage ef-
j feet must stand.
The children will have a
Christmas tree. The dear ladies
will present each other with em-
| broidered catch-alls, pretty and
capacious. The mere men will
undoubtedly celebrate the occasion as befits their northern
spirit. The social features and
entertainment are planned to
furnish a period of   levity and
joy.

Saturday, December, 161911
IN another column appears
a plea for the serious
consideration of our citizens, to
incorporate a municipality of
South Fort George. Such a
procedure would make but a
slight dili'eivsnce in the levying
of taxation, which would be
nore than compensated by the
benefits accruing to the city as
the direct result of local control.
W'e have already been approached by a strong concern
that wishes to install an electric lighting system here, providing a franchise could be secured. Unincorporated we can
not advance inducements to
such concerns, although ample
justification is conceded by the
conditions involved here today
in equipping our city as a community with such bright prospects as South Fort George
should be equipped.
Such matters of moment have
drifted along here since the inception of this townsite enterprise without much comment or
active agitation, as the time
could not have been deemed
propitious for the contemplated
action subsequent to the final
settlement of affairs of such
moment as the Indian Reserve
question, upon which largely
depended the future prosperity
of this community.
No matter how ambitious a
community may be to maintain
trade supremacy, or progressive
conditions of any description,
without munictual organization
the active work necessary to
further such undertakings will
inevitably wane when the duties
of public spirited citizenship become irksome to the people,
and devolve upon a few individuals. So today we have here a
moribund Board of Trade,
which started out to do great
deeds, and undoubtedly helped
very materially in its lirst burst
of enthusiasm to supply accurate information to people outside the district regarding local
conditions.
\S ith municipal organization,
governed by men elected to preside over the civic affairs and
protect the interests of the citizens, the responsibility for the
town's progress is shifted upon
the shoulders of a coterie of fit
men to accept such oflice, whose
actions are calculated to further prosperity.
Then let us incorporate.

The country north of Edmonton is be'ng rapidly opened up :
. There has been one long trek j
all this summer into the Peace j
Itiver disti'ict.    It  is said  i.hat j
the wheat   growing   limit   wil
extend    as far   as (ireat   Slavi
Lake, the most  northerly point
reached by the buffa'o in their
annual   migration. This means
prosperous settlements   for six
hundred miles north of Edmonton and possibly beyond. Splendid samples of copper and silver
lead have been brought in from
this northern   land and  in  the
Fort   McMurray   distriet  three
different  companies have found
oil   in   marketable   quantities.
Natural   gas    is abundant    at
many    points   and there is an
asphalt country   extending  for
a touusand square miles.
All that is now required for
the full development of this immense tract is railway communication and transportation.
Three lines are prepared to invade those northern regions
and within five years it, will be
a comparitively easy matter to
make the trip from Edmonton
up to the Slave Lake and on
clown the MacKenzie into the
Arctic Ocean. In fact the Hudson's Bay Company is abandoning its traditional conservative
policy and is even now advertising that it will be prepared
next year to sell round trip
tickets for this very trip, which
will take the traveller nearly
three thousand miles north.
