Mr. Deacon went up x§ the
Peace last summer via Fort
George and Giscombe in company with Engineer Murray of
Quesnel. His special work was
to build some roads for the government. He put in ten miles of
road connecting Pouce Coupe
with the Cutbank river, a tributary of the Peace, and also a strip
of road from Pouce Coupe to the
Swan lake district. The latter
road had already been cut, but
Mr. Deacon practically remade it.
"After this it will be easy for
people from this side to reach
Peace Coupe by canoe and road,"
said Mr. Deacon. They can get
down the Crooked and Parsnip
rivers lo thc Peace, and follow
the Cutbank river from the Peace
to a point about ten miles from
Pouce Coupe."
Mr. Deacon stated that the
steam boats on the Peace river
could not take care of the business last summer, and also says
that no' time should be lost in
providing a wagon road for settlers to get from Giscombe Portage over to MacLeod lake so that
they might have easy access to
the new wonder world we hear
so much about.
Mr. Deacon freighted and traded for "Twelve foot Davis" into
the Peace in the early eighties,
and is one of the most popular
and well known men in the Cariboo.
STEEL TO MILE 189 TONIGHT
Bulletin,—Arrivals from Mile 189 today state that it is expected that steel will reach that point, which is the third
crossing of the Fraser river, tonight.
As reported elsewhere in this issue, on authority of F. E.
Chamberlin, the temporary bridge at 189 has been injured by
drift ice, so at that point tracklaying will be held up.
It is 45 miles from Mile 149 to Fort George by the grade of
the Grand Trunk Pacific. After a start is made on this side
of the bridge there, steel will reach the Fraser bank here in
45 days, or at the rate of a mile a day.

J. B. Armstrong, Who Has Had
Charge of H. B. Railway ~
Work Resigns.
Ottawa, Nov. 11.—J. 13. Armstrong, chief engineer of the Hudson's Bay Railway, has tendered
his resignation to the minister of
railways, and it has been accepted.
Mr. Armstrong purposes engaging in the construction business, and for this reason is leaving the government's employ. He
has been connected with this
work since its commencement.
He will be succeeded by J. Porter, who is on Major Leonard's
staff in the construction of the
National Transcontinental.
It is also understood that the
headquarters of the Hudson's
Bay Railway construction department will be moved from
Winnipeg to La Pas, the work of
construction will be considerably
expedited, as Winnipeg is too far
from the scene of the work.
charged with the murder of Wat-
chy Gus. ' |L.
The most important point
against Wilson in this, the second
trial this week, was made by Stikine Joe, who went into the box,
and though at the first trial he
stated that he did not remember
anything of the affair, owing to
being dead drunk, he related a
story similar to that by Wilson
in his defence. When questioned
as to how he cam!e to remember
this story, he replied that it all
came back to him like a dream.
Wilson in his statement admitted
a previous conviction against him
for doing bodily harm to Emma
Wilson, the woman he shot.
The arrival of steel on the
Grand Trunk Pacific will be delayed still further by the fact that
the temporary pile bridge put in
at Mile 189 to allow the rails to
cross the Fraser at that point,
was carried out last Thursday by
floating ice. Some 12 lengths
were completely ruined, according to reports from up river.
Drift ice in the fall is a great
handicap to the bridge builders,
owing to the fact that the edges
of the floes are as sharp as knife
blades, and when the ice is carried along by a swift current, as
is the case at 189, the pilings are
cut off like asparagus stems.
According to reports it will not
be possible to complete the temporary bridge until the river
freezes over, which, judging by
last winter's record, may be late
in the season.
The end of steel is still in the
vicinity of Mile 182, where a big
fill has been retarding progress.

Angeloff was working in the

Angeloff had no relatives in

AVIATOR AMBITIOUS
New Hazelton, Nov. 13.—Hag-
wilget Indian village was visited
early Sunday evening by a fire
that brought grief to the native
villagers. When going to church
the Indian mother left her two
children at home locked in the
house. The church was just a
few yards off and the mother felt
secure. The fire had made great
headway, in fact the interior of
the shack was a roaring furnace,
when discovered by an Indian returning from New Hazelton.
The villagers were all at divine
worship, but as soon as the alarm
was given there was a general
exodus from the church. As the
Indians drew near the burning
uiikling tbey could hear the cries
of thc perishing children. Two
boys broke in the front door, but
as it gave way the fire and smoke
burst forth, volume after volume,
and an entrance to the building
was impossible. Very soon the
roof collasped* an(l all hope was
abandoned.
Yacnouver, Nov. 14.—George
Wilson, the Kimsquit Indian,
was this afternoon found guilty
of manslaughter by a jury after
less than an hour's deliberation.
The charge against him was the
murder of three Indians near Bella Coola on September 10. Wil-

On Saturday of last week the
"big hill" ont the road between
Fort George and South Fort
George, became, as far as traffic
is concerned, a memory.
Thc New grade from George
street, put in by the Grand Trunk
Pacific and winding up the hill
by a long and easy slant, reached
a point when it was ready for j
traflk, and the graders filled in
the old road by dumping earth
over from the new grade above.
On Saturday automobiles were
using the new road, and the drivers were loud in their praises of
the improvement. The heartbreaking climb that characterized "Corbett's leap" as the former
descent of the hill was called lo-
cally, has been entirely eliminated.'
A meeting of the South Fort
George social club was held last
evening in the new club rooms
above the Mecca cafe, on Hamilton avenue, and served to introduce a goodly number of the
members of this young but flourishing organization to their new
home.
It was decided by the club
members that the formal opening of the club should be held on
Saturday night, November 29, at
10 o'clock. All charter members
are cordially invited to attend on
this occasion.
A committee consisting of B.
Folk, W. F. Cooke, and J. Francis Kelly have the arrangements
for the entertainment in charge,
and judging by the enthusiasm
with which each of these gentlemen entered on the duties of the
office, the club is certain to
have a royal good time in store
for those members who attend.
It is planned to furnish something good in the line of refreshments, and there will be something doing every minute to
arouse and entertain. It is hoped
that there will be a full attendance of the members, who comprise 125 of the livest of the live
ones in South Fort George.^
Almost within sight of home,
two scows loaded with supplies
for Kennedy, Blair & Company,
were frozen in this week, near
McGoffin's camp, some ten miles
east of here.
The scows were loaded with
flour, about 30 tons in all. They
are being unloaded, and the cargoes will be freighted to South
Fort George by team as soon as
the riser freezes over.
Owing to the uncertainty of the
weather at this season, the firm
of Kennedy, Blair & Company
consider themselves fortunate in
having got the scows down to a
point so near town before the
freeze-up, as the haul from McGoffin's is no considerable diffi-
cultp when the ice road holds.
Reports brought in this week
indicate that there are nine scows
on the rocks in Giscombe rapids.

HAVE HAD THEIR DAY
Vancouver, Nov. 14.—"The Industrial Worker of the World is
a person of the past in British
Columbia just now.   The agitators have gone, for they find this
no place for them in the winter
time.   They are probably down
south where it is warm," yesterday at the Hotel Vancouver said
P. Welch, of the Pacifie   Great
Eastern   Railway, where it had
been reported the I. W. W. was
causing dissatisfaction among the
men.   •
With regards to the so-called
strike on the construction work,
Mr. Welch said that about   400
men have quit work, but there
usually are that many out of the
4000 employed, quitting and starting back to Vancouver, and there
is just as big a string of men en
route to the work.    Some men
are constantly leaving and their
places being filled. So far as what
is   known as a strike  occurring
Mr. Welch said there is no strike.
The company   has   also   closed

news quickly spread around town
and in a short time a large gathering assembled, amongst which
were representatives of all the

Speeches were the order and

ceremonies, addresses were made

North Vancouver, Reeve May for

and Jno. Alexander, councillor

The unloading of the engine
and cars was then effected by
means of a donkey engine and
cable. A ballast car was the first
off and the engine followed. It
has been used at Newport for
some time in the construction
work there and will be utilized
here on the construction of the
line between North Vancouver
city and West Vancouver and
possibly westward from Dunbar
avenue. It is of the 40-ton variety.

Peking,   Nov.    12.—President
Yuan Shi Kai   intends to summon an "administrative council"
which, in addition to transacting
state affairs, will draft regulations
governing the new   parliament.

officers and others appointed by
the president and the provincial
governors,   who   have   already
been appointed by him. Yuan Shi   *...*. ^...r...v

to 300 members.     The   original
number   of   representatives was
596.   The powers of the parliament will also be materially curtailed and the senate will disappear, giving place to the administrative council, which will be a
permanent body.   This program
was announced today and it will
probably be carried into effect if
the opponents of the president are
not able to bring about its modi-
better done in the spring than
during the winter. This also accounts to a degree for the swelling the number of men who lately have left the work.
The report of the strike on the

to create an offence already covered by the law, and was therefore ultra vires. He further ir-

judgment of the Supreme Court
of Canada on the QQuebec theatre case, in which the prosecution
had been launched under tbe

While the Federal act is recognized by the courts, it is necessary to obtain the assent of the

Ottawa, Nov. 12.—The statistics gathere dby the labor department show that Canada is maintaining its reputation for high
prices. The index number, which
shows as accurately as can be
done the relative change in tbe
co§t of living, is nearly one point
higher for the month of October
than for September. The index
number for October, 1912, was
135; for September, 1913, it was
136, while for last month the
figures just compiled show that
it was 136.S. This is a very unusual increase for one month except for January, which is largely
a price-setting month.
The reports from different
parts of the country show that
the retail prices of meats, eggs,
milk and butter, are all higher.
Evaporated apples and coa! arc
also among the commodities that
are still going up.
While the substantial rise in
the general average of prices for
tbe month is apt to be attributed
largely to the heavy exports to
the United States of livestock,
dairy produce, etc., it is really
difficult to read in detail as yet
the effect of the American tariff.
In some articles which were reported as being exported largely
across the line, there have been
drops in prices.

For the earliest civilization and
culture we must go to that part
of the world which, according to
belief, is the cradle of the human
race. The civilization of the
Mcsopotaniian Plan is not only
the oldest but the first where
white men settled in great communities under an orderly government with a developed religion, practicing agriculture and
erectng dwellings, and using
the syllabified writing. All modern civilization bad its scorce
there. In Egypt, too, at an early
date was a high form of Neolithic civilization 6000 years before
Christ, a white skinned, blond
haired, blue eyed race.built towns,
carried on commerce, made woven linen cloth, tanned leather,
formed beautiful pottery without
a wheel, cut stone with lathe, and
designed ornaments from ivory
and metals. These were succeeded by another great race which
probably migrated into Egypt
from Arabia. Among them were
warriors, administrators, fine
mechanics, artisans, artists and
sculptors. They left us tlie pyramids, and other magnificent monumental tombs and great masses
of architecture and sculptured
columns. Of course, they declined and passed away as all things
human must, but they left behind them evidences to tell of
their prestige and power. Do
you want to be one of the modern community and city builders?
There is one spot left in Canada where this is possible. That
is Prince George, with the best
climate in America.

right through to Burns lake
where they took the launch to

From there they drove tn the end

Every foot of the grade is imw
covered with men and things are

Mr. Stewart also referred to the

that he has been paying nmrc it-

that he has heard Sir Rcihard McBride speak very strongly in favor of the proposed northern road.
"What this country wants now,

There  are enough   real   estate

iunounhced some time ago by Hon.
w R  Robs, minister of lands.
Amonj tbe applicants far leases Ib
prank Vandecar of Victoria, who intends to bring in about 4000 sheep
il he can obtain thc land he wants in
the Lillooet district. He says after
travelling over much of the western
country be has seen no better grazing land than he saw on his trip into the Chilcotin country. He believes tbe land is suoerior to Te«BB
or Alberta .or grazing purposes.
Another applicant for a lease Id a
rancher of Powdrfr River, Ore., who
wants a reservation of about 20,000
acres 11 this land is allotted to him
It is understood hei will next year
ship to the province 15,00o sheep and
increase thiB number from year to

According to information refceived
there is a regular scramble for
these leases, enquiries reaching the
lands department from Oregon, Idaho, California, Washington, Alberta
and Manitoba, and British capitalists are also desirous of extending
tbtir holdings in this province by
obtaining leases. The Stump Lake
Und & Cattle Company, which is a
British corporation and already has
a sheep business in the province,
wants to extend its holdings and has
asked for an allotment.
According to Mr. Vandecar, who
started from Ashcroft, he travelled as
far as Gaspard creek, thence about
sixty miles west of Chilco lake. He
visited the Gang ranch in the Chilcotin country. There are' about 1600
sheep bemg grazed there. Tbe ranch
contains about eight townships and
is largely fenced. Most of the country Ib summer range, but several
ranchers through that district have
run Bheep with no wlrJter feed for
the laBr six years.
It is estimated tbat there now are
running in the Lillooet forestry district 2i,900 head of cattle, 1295 of
sheep and 3173 of horsc-s. In some
parts of the district wild hay grows
In abundance, and wild horses in

post. The Postoffice department has
b(|en engaged during the greiter part
of the Bummer and fa'l gathering
data upon which it could work out
a Bcheme that would be just and
equitable to all points.
The big matter to be decided upon
now is the rateB. It is not necessary to introduce a bill in parliament to bring the varcels jost into
effect. Last year ] arliament gave
the postmaster-general the netessary
power, and all that is required is a
departmental order from him- This
order, it is learned today, wi 1 be issued January 1. The rates are expected to le elight'y higher than
those which prevail in the United
States.

s .orage
right* board goes to Ashcroft
session on nest Monday it will
ably reach a decision on an in.erest-
ing water record dispute whi:h is
now raging in the district between
the owners ol the Basque and
wall ranches and the Ashcroft
& Land Company. The discussion between the ranch owners and ^tae Ian
comp any centres about
purposes.
In the particula cheme rilerrcd
to there is a small lake whidh can
be made to hold about 1000 acta feer
and a reservoir is also proposed on
Oregon .lack Creek. In thife way
sufflciiiit water can be stored |to irrigate about 1070 acres, it l<\ said,
but no one knows yet which 1000
acres will get tbe water, andl tho
claimants each own a much larger
area than that. The question .at issue as to rights is considered by
Commissioners Armstrong andj Alex
ander to be an exceedingly important one.
Thc board will sit at Ashcr<jft on
Monday, at Summerland on Wednesday, Pcac.hland on Friday, Pcnticton
the following Monday, Fairview on
Wednesday, and at Kamloops on December 1. The sessions in th« Okanagan valley will be important in
that they will cover a large; number of irrigation record claims. The
business to he taken up at Kamloops comprises that left unfinished
at the last session there.

Ottawa, Nov. 14.—An enormous increase in the consumption
of cigarettes in Canada is shown
by the figures compiled by the
statistical branch of thc inland
revenue department. These figures show that during the months
of July, August and September
there was smoked 3Kj.44G.180 cigarettes, which is, roughly speaking, an average of four packages
for every man, woman and child
within ihe confines of the Dominion, lt is an increase of more
than 50,000,000 over the corresponding months in 191 j. The increase is believed to be the highest per capita of any year the department has a record of.

While we deplore the passing
from the editorial chair of the pioneer editor of the Fort George
Herald, yet we welcome his successor, and it is our intention to continue our patronage by advertising
our wares in this paper, and to be
ever on the alert in boosting its interests, as well as our own business,
until both are a credit and befitting
to the city in which we live, realizing that a high standard in either
merchandise or journalism siall have
their reflex action in the upbuilding
and prosperity of our future city.
We would, therefore, like to state
here for the benefit of those who are
not wise to the fact that we have
opened up a r.ew furnishing and
shoe store in the large Blair Building now being -completed, on the
corner of Hamilton and Third street.
The management and the destinies
of this business will be guided by
our famous shoe man, Victor Williams, and we would like to inform
you thafc.-we intend to give bargains
in this store. We have spent days
in marking the prices down, until it
requires glasses to distinguish the
cost from the selling price. We
therefore pray that you give us a
look in; even your look will be appreciated. .   _'.
But don't forget that our large
emporium is still in full*-swing where
we can sell you almost any line of
goods imaginable.
While we may not show it, yet
deep down in our hearts we appreciate the business given us by the
citizens of Suuth Fort George and
surrounding district, and it is to
them alone we owe our success.
Trusting that a continuation of
these relations ever remain.
We are, sincerely yours,
