■ill be   remembered   that on
28th., of last year the people
iritish Columbia returned the Mc-
government to power on the
al issue of this Pacific Great
tern Railway, from Fort George
incouver, and other railroad ex-
Itations. The Act, brought down
'remier McBride, is in many ways
ine. An agreement    bearing the
of February 10th., 1912, was en-
i into between His Majesty the
;, as represented by his first min-
', Sir Richard McBride, and Tlm-
Poley, Patrick Welch and John
(art.  This   agreement,   briefly,
rtded lor the construction of this
ot railway, to be built by the
irated contracting firm, between
aforesaid points. The agreement
rides that the   line shall be of
idard gauge and equipped on an
il  comparison with    any other
class road. Further the current
|es of the   districts were to be
I, and all supplies are to be purled as far as possible from pro-
merchants.  TheBe and other
irtant leatures set out the gov-
lent'a requirements    from   the
'ay concern. The government, on
Part, guaranteed the firm a 100

'' <"•*• income, until  July 1st.,
fourteen years   from the date
the agreement.   The    securities,
lc'Pal and interest, of the com-
7, were guaranteed by the gov-
■ent. An  extension of time for
-"*.   under  various   continue8, was also provided for. To
agreement  were   appended   the
"tores ol Sir. Richard McBride,
to°se of Messrs. Foley, Welch,
Bowser   and Mr.
that if circumstances will Justify he j
will put on a stage service between
this point and Fraser Lake, beginning   next   month,    and    continuing
throughout the summer. This service
he says, will be weekly. The advantage of this proposed enterprise to
the people of the Nechaco Valley is
obvious. Under    present   conditions
freight and mail for the valley, leaving Quesnel, traverses the long telegraph trail road. A letter from this
place, for instance, addressed to Fort
Fraser, unless   it makes quick connections at Quesnel, takes about 24
days to reach its destination. If the
connection is made with the Fraser
Lake mail the journey consumes at
least 12 days. Owing to the superior
road between    Quesnel and   Fraser
Lake    this   way,    the service from
Quesnel to the valley can be given
in five days.   The distance between
here and Fraser Lake is 110 miles,
and according to Mr. Hoy, the road
between these points is the best road
In the    country.     Mr. Hoy made a
trip from Milne's   Landing, seventy
miles west of here, last summer with
a wagon,  in     twelve   hours actual
travelling.

The Third Annual Firemen's Ball,

It Is noticible that as civilization
advances in tbe northland, and the
social life of   the country   becomes
more settled into the lines of studied conventionality, that the usages
of that lnslduous something termed
fashion begins to claim victims in the
throng. The    old-timer sighs as he
watches such a vivacious, well dressed gathering as that presented in the
Fort Oeorge Theatre   last night on
thc   occasion   of   the Third   Annual
Firemen's Ball. Memory carries him
back to the   days, not many years
ago, when things were altogether in
the rough, and rfo foibles of convention  were   known    other    than the
unwritten laws of frontier etiquette.
And yet this is what all have been
watting for. There Is no surer barometer, of a frontier   country's emancipation from the crude than close
comparison of its social events with
those that have gone before. And so
the time will undoubedly come when
the man who starts to "call-off" a
"square dance"    in    Bouth    Fort
George will be   arrested as soon at
he lets out the first yell, and gentlemen will hav* to attend dances In
The annual meeting ot the South
Fort George Conservative Association was held in the Fire Hall last
Mooday Evening. The attendance
was good. President Chas. E. McElroy was in the chair, and after
the minutes of the last meeting had
been read and passed upon, the annual election ot officers was proceeded with.
It seemed the wish of the meeting
generally that the officers for 1912,
Chas. E. McElroy, as president, and
George E: McLaughlin as secretary,
should be re-elected by acclamation,
and lt was only upon the refusal of
these gentlemen   to   accept  second
terms on the   grounds    that    new
blood was always of benefit to political organization, that other gentlemen's names    were   introduced for
office. The officers elected are as follows;
Hon.   Pres., Sir   Richard McBride.
President,  Neville Montgomery.
Vice-President, Chas. B.  McElroy.
Secretary, Jno. O. Williamson.
Executive       Committee:       Russel
Peden, Alan K. Bourchier; Pat Campbell and Geo. E. McLaughlin.
A hearty vote of thanks was moved
for the retiring officers by Mr. Pat
Campbell. Mr. Campbell dwelt upon
the efficient organization that had
grown up here owing to the energy
of the officers of the association, and
stated that in no term past bad the
work been more carefully attended to
than under the regime of Messrs. McElroy and McLaughlin, and the 'executive for the year past.

proposed in the ministerial measures

record fee and $10 for Crown grant.
The standard size of a holding will
continue to be   160 acres,  although
power is retained in the Minister of
Lands  to decide    tbe   size  of any
individual pre-emption, or to reject
an application entirely, if such action appears to him in the public interest, an explanation   of this provision being found   possible   In the
fact that many Orientals have heretofore sought to take advantage of
the pre-emption law in securing possession of provincial lands.
The Minister is also empowered to
allot pre-emption, if it is deemed in
the public interest, even in such localities as provincial parks.
As against the loss ot revenue involved in this new policy, the amendment to the Forests Act provides tor
an increase in the royalty collected
on timber cut on Crown lands, from
fifty cents to one dollar per thousand

Speaking of the wonderful park be
is creating, Mr. Ross said:
"The    desirability of   creating a
park in this locality' is evident. Abutting on its eastern side the great
national park in Alberta, a park of
five thousand   square miles   extent,
Mount Robson   Park   lies    a vast,
wild Alpine wonderland. It is Bet in
a hitherto    unknown section, probably the wildest and most romantic
on the continent. So little was known
ot it that the surveyors and engineers who did the surveying and path-
finding for the Grand Trunk Pacific,
found   undiscovered    waterfalls the
height ot which   exceeded    that ot
Niagara. They found   mighty rivers
which    existing maps   'showed fifty
miles out ot their place—rivers and
lakes full of fish and rugged wilds
alive with game. And all was sot in
an expanse of sublime grandeur. In
such a   snactury    :or a   workaday
world Mount Robson Park is placed,
a heritage vested in    the people ot
British Columbia. Nature there, has
provided Its attractions as lavishly
as It has endowed other portions of
British Columbia with potentialities.
Wherever he afterwards may be the
visitor will never forget the glorious
new wonderland,     and it   will lure
him back again. Mount Robson Pa
will be a never ending source of at
traction, drawing    many thousands
to British   Columbia,    while lnca -

the province.
"Tbe   area which    has   been set
aside iB more suitable tor the purposes ot a national  park than any
other, Its altitude—the lowest part
in the valley is 3000 teet above the
sea—is such that while it otters unparalleled   attractions as    a  great
playground, its height,   to a great
extent, precludes it from successful
agricultural   exploitation,   and   its
stands of timber    while   such that
protect watersheds and their greenness adds to the charm of the wondrous panorama that meets the view
from any one of the towering peaks,
and not of a nature   to tempt tbe
logger or   miller   to    the fastness
where they grow. Yet the forests add
much to the desiribility of the park,
making it compare, ln some respects
at least, with Band and Yoho parks.

The death of William J. Mackay robs British Columbia of a
strange but splendid character,    Mackay was a believer in the
theory that the age of a man was regulated by his physical capability.   Though for the past two years the deceased had suffered
from internal troubles of a grave nature, his dauntless spirit never
permitted him to show signs of the great suffering which he
must have been subject to.   He was a young-old man.   We have
seen him lift a form off a press alone, rather than seek assistance,
and then creep off without a word to his room where he would lie
twisted and racked by terrible pains.   Mac. was the most consistent man the writer has ever met.    Never hastily arriving at
conclusions, after his mental attitude had been defined we never
knew him to waver in the course of action which his mental process dictated.   Seldom would he talk of himself or tell of the
strange tricks which fate had played him during his eventful
career.   He had travelled much, and had a love for Latin-American countries, and could speak Spanish fluently.   Like Houston,
with whom he was associated in many enterprises, Mackay hid
under a forbidding exterior a heart of pure gold.   Sympathy and
human kindness were large in his soul.    We never met a man
whom opportunity gave the intimate friendship of the deceased
who did not eulogise his remarkable character.   It is sad to think
that a man, whose hosts of friends are scattered broadcast over
the continent, was doomed to die alone in a hospital, for the relapse that carried him off came swiftly, but well do we know that
William John Mackay faced the mystery of eternity with a smile
upon his countenance.   He had no fear for any living thing, and
although no theist, he believed in a simple religion of the golden
rule.   And so passes from the records of this mundane sphere the
actions of a man whose memory will live long after his body has
crumbled into decay, and long into ths future when men's paltry
works of today found here have evolved the greater city of the
future, there will always be one who will revere the name of
William John Mackay for the active part he has taken in the
pioneer work of the nucleus.

The secretary of the Edmonton Board of Trade this week wired
a prominent business man of this town to the effect that Edmonton certainly wants the trade of this country.   They have wakened up.   It would be well for the people of Edmonton to understand, however, that the business men of this town are by no
means falling over themselves with delight as the result of
receiving the Board of Trade's message.    We have thrown this
business at the heads of the moribund crowd of wholesalers in
Edmonton for long enough, and it is highly possible that they
have lost much business to houses farther east.   If, however, the
business men of Alberta's capital are anxious at last to grasp the
magnificent opportunity to win the trade of the great Fort George
section, then let them actively campaign for this business,    We
have never yet learned of a single wholesale or jobbing house in
Alberta addressing itself in advertising literature or mailed canvass to any of the mercantile firms here.   It would be a good idea
if the secretary of the Board of Trade would compile a list of the
prominent mercantile houses of his city who have shown interest
in the new trade area we open to them, and send this directory
broadcast over the district here.    We shall be glad to publish
such information.   As it stands we do not believe that there is a
firm doing business in this town that will not have some commodities to order in the navigable season, and we know that there
is not one in ten of these houses have any information as to
where their order will receiv* the best attention in Edmonton.

Mount Robson Park, an idea presumably formed by the Hon.
W. R. Ross during his trip through the Yellowhead Pass last
summer, is worthy of the undivided support of the whole house,
including the brace of oppositionists, The region which the bill
Bets apart for a national park is one of inimitable grandeur.
Mount Robson, the highest peak in the Canadian Rockies, towering 13,700 feet above sea level, raises its great crest in the park.
The wonders of nature that will be discovered when the region is
more thoroughly explored we predict will astonish the world.
There are, that we know of, hot springs, the wonderful Moose
River Falls, and many other natural wonders to be found right
along the line of the G.T.P. through the park, and back in the
undisturbed hinterland there will assuredly be found other
wonders.
It is persistently reported that the G.T.P. bridge at Bear River
will obstruct navigation on the Fraser River, as, according to the
rumor, there is no swing span provided for in the plans oi this
bridge. According to the report which we have of this matter,
the bridge will be too low to allow even the smallest craft to pass
under it during high water. As it is contrary to the Dominion
statutes to obstruct navigable waterways, we do not place credence in the report, but it comes with such persistence that it
would be well for the Board of Trade to watch events at the Bear
River bridge crossing.
The secretary of the local Conservative association was recently
initructed to wire our representative, Mr. Fraser, asking that he
approach the government with a request for the sale of the blocks
in the business section. The government sent their usual steroe-
typed reply, refusing "on grounds of public interest." The government own one-quarter of this townsite, but they have never
spent a dime in assisting the people to build it up. Their lots are
littered with shacks. Shacks are fire traps. In the last month
two have gone up in smoke.

Dear Dan,—I like this place better every day and
you couldn't pull me out of it. The rheumatism
has completely left me and I never felt better in
my life and can eat like a horse.
I never saw better potatoes than I have seen
grown here, and the largest carrots 1 have ever had
the pleasure of seeing were grown here. The nice
flavor of the vegetables and roots here was one of
the first things which I noticed. A Mr. McDonald
here grew over 100,000 pounds of potatoes this
summer. I saw some No. 1 oats and wheat which
was grown here, and the wheat was even a better
variety than the oats.
There is plenty of the finest land surrounding
Fort Fraser, and the location of the townsite and
view from it is perfect. The appearance of the
country generally, from a scenic point of view cannot be improved upon.
At present there is on the townsite a sawmill, a
brancn of the Bank of Vancouver, hotel almost
completed and will be open very soon, Government
building which is a credit to the town, the Fort
Fraser Investment Company, Dominion Stock &
Bond Corporation agent and office and his residence, a drug store, postoffice shortly, and a great
number of larger or smaller houses.
The best openings at present are for a butcher,
cabinetmaker to make furniture and run a furniture store, livery, restaurant, bakeshop, general
stores and clothing store. In the spring there
should be good openings for another grocery, hardware, poolroom, barber shop, jewellery, another
sawmill, boarding house and rooms, tailor, dressmaker and probably several other lines.
Taking conditions all around I am more pleased
every day that I came in here when I did. This is
going to be a good town, and the man who gets in
here first is going to do well. Hang onto what
property you have here, Dan, and my advice to you
is to get more of it. It is bound to come, and all I
can say is that Fort Fraser is good enough for me.

any was to go via the G. T. P., and
all construction    material   for   the
building of the road was to go via

These agreements were entered

construction will begin actively from
this end as soon as steel reaches
striking distance of this place from

period of months.
It is difficult to forecast the locution ol the line through the lower

The boxing program in the Fort
George Theatre last Saturday evening provided a good evening's entertainment for lovers ot the sport, and
was well attended. In the main
event, ten rounds, George Allen vs.,
Jack Davies, Allen won handily, his
superior weight proving too much
for his plucky little opponent. The
contest ended ln the sixth round,
Davies' seconds admitting defeat by
throwing tin the sponge to save
their man trom a knockout. The
first preliminary between Ansell and
Howard, wag a hummer, Referee
Campbell rightly called it a draw.
Curly Hunter and Jack Cronin were
the other preliminary artists, and
Cronin won by a mile, though lt was
rather a tame affair. The entertainment was staged under the direction
of Professor Billy Morris. A commendable feature of the past two entertainments under tbe professor's
management here have been their
freedom from anything objectionable
or savoring of rowdyism, and while
this continues there can be no fault
found with the clean sport.
GOOD BOXING BOUT FOR I7TH MARCH
Final arrangements for a bout between the heavyweight fighters,

gate receipts to the winner and twenty five per cent to the loser. Training expenses will be allowed.
Sheridan holds an amateur record
ot champion of New York and Boston.
He insists that it be understood that
his winnings in the bout will be donated to charity, ag he doeg not intend to enter the ring except in tht
amateur class. He fights tor the love
ot the game.
Great interest ls exhibited In the
event in sporting circles, as both men
are known as clever boxers ot the
first class. The only detail of the
arrangements which has not so far
l*um complied with is the covering ut

WILLOW RIVER
BRITISH COLUMBIA
At the confluence of the Fraser, Salmon and Willow Rivers.
The first town of importance to be established in Central
British Columbia on the Main line of the Grand Trunk Pacific
Railway. By those who are in close touch with the true
conditions, Willow River is regarded as being a town of
future great importance in the heart of "Canada's Inland
Empire." This fact, plus the fact that Willow River will be
an important lumbering, mining and agricultural centre,
makes property in this new town desirable from either a
business or investment standpoint. Willow River property
has been purchased by merchants and investors throughout
Canada and United States. Although the town was only
established October 16th, 1913, a number of lots have been
resold at decided profits, while other purchasers refuse to
sell at even twice the prices paid. The business portion only
, of Willow River is now on the market—the survey of the
residence portion has recently been completed and this portion
of the town will be placed on the market in the near future.
There are a limited number of lots available in the business
portion at the original prices. Easy Terms. No Interest.
Cleai and perfect title direct from the Grand Trunk Pacific
Railway. The Original and Official Townsite of Willow River
is located on Lot 785; Station Site approved by the Board of
Railway Commissioners March 26th, 1912, Order No. 16179.
