Till I', board of Trade of the city of Ed-
monton appears to lv a heavy-
weight iii'Lranizgtion. It is quite alive to
all thr clangers that beset its sunny province, ainI it takes active and well adviser!
action to compass the destruction of any
elements that threaten to besmirch the
uilt-eclged credentials that the province oi
Alberta lias borne since Provincial Autonomy carried. It is now engaged in trailing
the "wild-cats" that trespass within its
sphere ni activity, to their lairs, and
twistin!_r their long wooly tails. The following is a copy of a resolution pnssed by
llu real estate section of the Edmonton
Board nf Trade, a short time ago:
"That in the opinion of this meeting
k'Mation should lx< enacted which will
prevent:—
ill Any person from offering for sale
property in a city or town in the Province uf Alberta, in connection with
which there is no registered plan, except
however, legal   sub-divisions when sold
as a  v. le ile.
vl) iiu- publishing or offering for
sale properties of which plans have not
been registered.
(3) The publishing of plans of sub-
divisions in connection with which there
is in. key plan showing the distance
from the Central l'ost Oflice of such city
nr town; or which does not show the
contour of such subdivision. This is not
intended to prevent, the publishing of a
niit|i of the whole of a city or town.
A.nl further, that the legislation make
it a criminal offence to publish in any
newspaper, pamphlet or poster, mis-
leading statements or inferences, in connection with the offering for sale of any
real .■state.
Aid that il, be recommended that no
plans of subdivisions within two miles
"f il.e present limits of any city or town
h" approved by the inspector of surveys
ami! it has been approved by the Commissioners or Council of the city or
lown near whibb it isi situated.
And lhat it   be further recommended
thai these   regulations be made appne-
»!>lc, so far as practicable, to property
"itn .led without the province of Alberra
hw offered for sale within the province.

IJION either side of our resurrected deck head appears
solemn warning to tlte general public of these
parts. We inserted tlie material referred to on advices revived immediately before we last went to press. It appears
tnaf th'' work of Mr. George ,). Hammond's "Fort George
Hoard of Trade" who are trying to impress the Grand
Trunk Pacific Railway Company with the idea that they represent tlie best interests of this vast territory, in requesting
information from them, and offering them advice, all of
which is carefully calculated to bolster up the promoter's
townsites, is now being supplemented by lirst band instructions from the promoter in the Bower block, Vancouver. Wo
have to laugh. The Herald has already dwelt upon the absurd petitions circulated by Hammond's agents, requesting
the G. T. P. to make a statement about the exact location
of the station on the Indian Reserve, and advising them
just where it', should be. The Fort George Board of Trade
is a galaxy of Mr. Hammond's supporting ring. They were
sponsors for the document. Now the promoter has paid run-
ers circulating a petition, wliich is addressed to the Railway Commission, further afield. He is sending it way-back
into the woods; to the lone pre-emptor and the trapper on
his line.. The runners are paid §6,50 a day; their duty is to
ask you to sign: DON'T DO IT. Hammond's townsite company have sold some 20,000 lots up the Nechaco River, under misrepresentation. His signature appeaed under statements to the effect that the G. T. P. would locate their
depot here closer to his mass of townsites than to any other
sub-division. The statement was very probably responsible
for the sale of lots, wliich, without, it would not have been
sold, and therefore, in the event of his rash statements being
proven unfounded, buyers could probably jump on his neck
for obtaining their good money under false pretences. The
pseudo-public interest thus exposed, shown the self-interest
of the townsite promoter, who is trying to get the public
to subscribe signatures to a petition calculated to verify
his former reckless statements; create for himself a more enviable reputation tlian he now possesses, and smooth a
path for him to future ventures, which, however rankly promoted may hope to win out by the combined weight of the
mass of people who have purchased property from him under misrepresentation, whose support may afterwards be
relied upon in any movement calculated to bring in returns.
The very idea that George J. Hammond, the ex-buchet-
shop shark, could hitch up an arrangement with the Grand
Trunk Pacilic Railway Company, as his iterated and re-iterated statements claim to bo a practically completed compact, to locate the station at some certain point, is absurd.
The Railway Commission must pass upon any sites proposed for station purposes, and now The Natural Resources
Security Company, of which Mr. Hammond is president, is
going to the Railway Commission with an application that
requests them to grant certain concessions which the promoter has already laid claims to, AND ON THOSE VERY
CLAIMS HAS SOLD PROPERTY. It is obvious that if
Geo. J. Hammond wanted the railway station located at
a certain point,, to justify his statements that it would be
tlkcre, his lirst action would be to lay before the Railway
Commission apparently representative endorsation of his application by tlie public interested. This he is now doing, as
we have shown. In this district, wc believe, his petition
will not be extensively signed but he is sending it to every
lot holdrrs on his lists, and if the names of 11 the servant
girls, stenographers and day-wage people whose hard cash
lias gone into his capacious maw in exchange for some of
his '20,000 25-foot lots, under the delusion thut it would eventually make them independently wealthy for life, and so
with the expenditure of a little time and money for postage
stamps George will surely be able to rig up a pretty fat
petition. Tbe moral is, therefore, do not sign any petitions
eminating from the Hammond townsite unless it has been
indorsed publicly at South Kort George, by the people. The
use of the petition in vague frontier countries like this is
great, and it should not bo abused. By it the sentiment of
the public in remote places, may be conveyed through the
great distances to the powers tlmt be for the price of
a two-cent stamp. Some men will sign a petition without
even reading it, just to be obliging. The Herald begs to
prevail upon the people of the country, who have rts bes tin-
terests at l«art, not to do so. The Hammond       application

their native real-estate confidence men, but
they seek also broader powers, enabling
their province t,o proceed against the invasion of thoir territory by the wildcats that lurk in the dark forests of British
Columbia, on their,great western boundary,
and elsewhere. If the legislation that they
recommend were passed in the province of
British Columbia, our penitentiaries would
be filled with townsite promoters; the "ad.
rooms" of our daily and weekly papers
would lay off about fifty per cent of tlwir
compositors and make-up men, and a
crowd of smooth political crooks in Victoria would he cutting down their living expenses and striving to more thoroughly
"cover their tracks."
We do n't blame Edmonton for trying to
keep her province's gambling money out of
such "brace games"   as British Columbia
wild-cats.     There is    little more chance of
winning out in a    large percentage of the
"townsite," the    "farm land" or the "orchard tract" propositions   being offered in
New British Columbia today, than there is
of beating   a crooked,     marked-card stud-
poker layout run by tinhorn gamblers. Shun
them, as you would a leper, unless you have
information upon them from some independent source, upon which you can rely. Pass
up the sidewalk salesman who buttonholes
you, whilst you gaze at his lurid bate "done
in oils" behind   some plate   glass window,
unless you know. Remember that whenever
one   bona-fide    proposition   "takes   hold"
with the public there is always a swarm of
get-rich-quick men   with their   counterfeits.
Accept no substitutes, as the advertisments
say. Remember that the ways of the wildcatter are more or less obvious to the trained observer of his species. He advertises big,
and so receives the plaudits of the degenerating press. He puts up,a big, "front", uses
good offices, wears diamonds—which he considers a reserve fund—and always has a line
of smooth "patter". He will often sidestep
direct questions, nnd hates to meet a man
from the ground, for him—the sickly smile.
Here, in British Columbia, the need of repressive measures bearing upon the wild-cat
and its habitat, are   not, only urgent, but
are imperative. A bounty should be placed
upon their    heads.    When a   hunter, more
hardy than his fellow sportsmen—who keep
along the beaten trails and snipe the small
game that crosses their trail—takes to the
hills and rouses a she cat in tli3 wilder land
behind, the pallid   trail-padders in the valleys should gather courage enough to search
out the scene of the reports that echo across
to them. Not so, however,   in British Columbia. The bulldozing, counterfeit-militant
press is, in too many instances, a mask to
hide the   blackmailing,   purchasable, slimy
principles of the journalistic profligates who
stand behind the swindler in his schemes.
The laws of our land, governing the passage
of newspapers through the mails, will not
allow the use of sufficiently strong language
to    condemn,   adequately, the   practice of
bartering the policy of newspapers for the
support of concerns that pay for lies, misrepresentation and the abuse of its enemies.
Such papers, however, exist in British Columbia today, and elsewhere.
The Herald has ripped and torn at some
of these wild-cat promoters for a year and
a half now. We drew the veil away from
their past. In some instances we found sensational material to back up our statements
that the class of promoter who works tho
long distance gome was worth watching.
We found records of past easy-money work,
of swindling and embezzlement, and we
told the public to watch them. The profligate, journals that followed in their line
said we lied. We were also dubbed "blackmailing publisliers" by a crook, a "Rogue's
gallery" picture of whom reposes in our
files, and in the fight we,lost much money—
for the dear, considerate public. And so,
finding Alberta mildly touched by the plaguo
of sub-division, Edmonton takes strong
measures to purify the atmosphere of her
province from such injurious bacteria,
Conljllliwl piii'i' 1. i'i,].I.

the even tern r i f its way. The
press, at large, is content.
Spread betw 'on Hazelton and

this route, far from the beaten
