J. B. Daniell, President,

Dee.r Sirs:-
Vour issue of the 21st October I'JII containing an article under the caption "The Winnipeg Post and Hammond"
has been placed before us by Mr.  George .J. Hammond  of
The Natural  Resources Security Company Limited of this
city.
You therin state that the representative of the Winnipeg Post was led to Fort George "by one of Hammond's
bunco steerers, who was paying the bills."
Vou then proceed to state in effect that the Winnipeg
Post were corruptly obtained by Mr. Hammond to publish
thsir statement of facts resulting from their own investigations.
You further state respect ine; Mr. Hammond: "We know
thai be bribes, and can prove this as he tried to bribe tlv
Herald to quit attacking him and his townsites. We know
him as a smooth and crooked promoter and a ch/.er and
rather dangerous man."
You charge his promotion methods as b'iiiLr "rotten"
and you further refer to him and his company as follows:
"Their methods led us to investigate the past of the promoters and we found that Hammond had beea identified
with get-rich-quick schemes since he left his naii\e town on
Lake Erie. Ho had been run out of Woodstock, Ont,,, foi
crooked work. His name in Chicago and Minneapolis is a
stench in the ncstrils of thousands of those whom he had
defrauded." And you continue with language of the most

violent and abusive nature which we need nol quote hue.
We on behalf of Mr. Hammond call upon you to make
an immediate fl,nd full retraction and apology of each and
all that you charge against him. Your article is violent
and defamatory in the extreme and clearly intended to injure I,is character and reputation.
If you do nol retract and apologise in the first issue of
the Fort George Herald after receiving this letter we will
for Mr. Hammond commence without further delay criminal and civil proceedings against you and this letter is
written under the requirements of the Criminal Code in that
behalf. . if,,
Wo need scarcely draw your attention to the tact that

ADVERTISING RATES OM APPLICATION
THE ONhY NEWSPAPER PUBLISHED
IN FORT GEORGE NOT CONTROLLED BY
A TOWNSITE COMPANY.
1
in. uuwjisiiu    ijuusiion   at   jtlazoltou
»   TOWNSITE promoter named (i. J,
**    Hammond   is     going to  sue The
Herald for libel.
The events which have led up to this resolution on the part of Mr. Hammond  arc
history to consistant readers of this journal. Mr. Hammond's townsites were misrepresented, for  purposes of salesmanship, on
such an extensive scale that the Herald entered into a campaign against his promoting organization, with the object in view
of preventing the public in the distant railroad country from    purchasing his 25-foot
lots under tie influence of any misconception instilled by lying advertising literature.
There is no question of doubt regarding
the foundation for our statement that Mr.
Hammond  has vastly  misrepresented  facts
in the advertising of the Natural Resources
Security Co.  Ltd.    This   misrepresentation
has come before the   public in the form of
pamphlets, folders and circular letters etc.
The statements issued in the circular letters
issues to lot-holders, which bear Mr. Hammond's name have been exceptionally bold.
For instance in one circular letter Mr, Hammond states that he paid the railroad company a large sum to locate their railway
station at a po.nt   on th.' Indian Reserve
advantageous to his operations. Apparently it did not occur to Mr.  Hammond that
the letter in itself would convince any man
with tho ability to     think that his   town-
sites must be situated   at   a   point in the
local  tonography, where,   in   the ordinary
course of events,    the    railroad company
would most certainly not locate their railroad station, else why should the promoter
"come across" with the enormous sum of
$200,000. The falsity of the statement, however, is proven by two very cogent reasons
showing the   impossibility   of such   a deal
being framed up between the railroad and
Mr. Hammond. In the first place when the
letter was written the G. T. P. did not own
the Indian Reserve, and it was rather problematical whether they ever would.
The second reason is apparently unknown
to Mr. Hammond, but may we state for his
benefit that the Railroad Commission of
Canada have absolute jurisdiction in the
matter of the location of station sites,
when such matters are referred to that body
by the public, as it assuredly would be in
the ease of a corporation attempting to
purchase special priveledges rightfully belonging to public interests.
Regarding tli! exposure of Mr. Hammond's past exploits in the field of promotion, which we have printed from time
to time, we have dealt with that in other
columns. We have kid, and still have, every
reason to believe that Mr. Hammond of
Vancouver is identical with the Mr. Hammond, late of Chicago, whose career in that
city is of such interest that it is published,
amongst others, in a book described on its
title page as follows:
"A study of speculation and its
counterfeits,   and an    expose   of
the methods of Hueketshop and
get-rich-quick swindles."
If Mr. Hammond is not the Chicago man,
and we can prove him to be, then we most
sincerely apologise.
The Herald welcomes the pending suit,
which promises us the opportunity of upholding our statements and proving them.
has   apparently   become   somewhat
involved,  as   hereabouts.  There is  Ellison,
a townsite promoted near Hazelton by the
(Irand trunk   Townsite    and    Development
Company, near   Hazelton,   on which    il   is
now stated no station will be built although
it was understood that   a depot  would be
built  on  the   property, by  the lot  buyers.
Then there is tho old townsite of Hazelton,
now being largely deserted for the new site
of the (1. T. I', registered under the name of
South  Hazelton,  the   townsite which  is to
be sold by auction for the railway co|n|)aiiy
in Vancouver shortly, (leorge J. Hammond,
our friend the promoter, became mixed  up
in this, ans das advertised the fact that he
would sell  the      properly for   the railroad
company.  11  appears that the Natural Resources Company negotiated the sale of the
property.   They    advertised   that they represented the (I. T. I', in the sale of the new
site, embodying   in   their   advertisment   a
telegram    from I',   (i. Rylry, the   G. T. P.
Land Commissioner   to   the owner   of the
land in care of the firm, stating that Mr.
Rylry "accepted terms" and would build a
station on the property.
lt is significant to note that the hand.
Commissioner is advertising extensively the
fact that the townsite of South Hazelton,
which Mr. Hammond claimed that he was
going to sell, will be sold by auction in
Vancouver, and that information concerning the sale could be obtained from W. J,
Sanders, the original owner, at his offices
in the Leigh-Spencer Building, who represents the G. T. P.
It would appear that George Hammond
has had another pipe dream.
117 E have received a copy of the Coronation Edition of the British Columbia Year Book, edited by R. E. Gosnel, who
has rendered this province such signal service as a statistican in years past, and also
in the annual compilation of the compact
volume of information and ready reference
upon matters British Columbian, as may
always be found between the covers of the
B. C. Year Book.
The book contains 358 pages; is well illustrated, and full of a detailed history of
the province's advancement and development.
MOW that thc location of the Orand
Trunk Pacific railway company's
townsite here is an assured fact, and realizing from the fact that they paid the sum
of $125,000 for the location, that they will
count upon great results from the sale,
which will detract from the interest in addition properties, it appears to be time that
the government placed the reserved blocks
in this townsite on the market,. They are
retarding present development here by refusing to do so. Other additions can not
lay claims to such conditions, and their
government blocks need not be sold until
the authorities can do without blushing, if
such a period is ever reached.
Me wan:, only a square deal.

E take this opportunity to inform our many custom-    t.
ers and  the public generally  that the low prices    fj
which have prevailed in our store through the summer
months will be maintained throughout the winter,
E have been fortunate in receiving most of our heavy g
goods before the close of navigation and having our &
own teams will be able to bring, our goods over the road g
at the minimum cost. *

on the pebbly bar up which two
men are lining her. They are
trappers and prospectors, and
with them we exchange news,
Tor in the northland one's every movement is cl.conicled and)
all as in a scattered family, are
accounted for. Again we glide
along a some four miles an
hour—without doing any work
save an occasional touch to the
sweeps tp keep iii the main
channel— and so we speedily
make the Halfway river, some
'Ml miles from Hope.
Before reaching this point the
river changes its aspect, large
trees clothe the banks, among
theim being some excellent
spruce which would appear to
have a commercial value.
We keep out      of the narrow
hot lie    green     channel,    into
which the swamp colored  Half
way has forced  the  Peace, e.'id
camp just below the meeting of
the waters.  Across thc rivor is
a big drif wood pile, antl back
of it are huge eutbanks shaped
like the   ends of   a  whe.--,!stack
"topped  up"   with  spruce,    instead   of straw.   A little   lower
down ti," banks are a replica of
Washington's       shield— brown
river, and as the eye travels upward,   perpendicular   stripes of
bhvk slate formation  alternating     with     brown—then     the
brown      'chief     without    the
stars.   Burned     trees     stick up
atop,   and     strew     themselves
down    the cliff    face    just    as
though some hand had here up-;
set a giant match box.
But on our side is a lovely
flat extending east from the
junction of the rivers for about
three miles. Here is food for the
settler or the artist. The long
meadow by the river's brink is
covered by the most luxuriant
growth of hay it has ever been
my lot to see. The six squatters
thereon were busy with it and
estiimated it would cut five tons
to the acre.
We take a look at the kitchen
garden planted June 5—this is
now August 22. There hah beer,
one frost which Las withered
the beans and corn, but lettuce
turnips, swedes, carrots, cabbages, parsnips, radishes, peas,
beets and summer and winter
onions are looking tine. Now
second to the upper fie,'., brushing the dew from rye-grass and
red-top, vetch and pea-vine,
picking i!,s you go the berries
by the way. There are saskatoons, cranberries, wild cherries,
choke cherries, raspberries and
strawberries, red and black bear
berries, and best, of all liked by
Bruin—the wiiAen red willow
berries. Food indeed for man
antl beih t, and down in the
river are ling and dory, bull
trout and cat-fish. Herbs too
are at one's feet. Horsemint
itself on t'," green carpet. Here
is the blue of the wild aster and
hi'.rebell: there the red is supplied by the painted cup; those
golden patches are the marigold end golden red. The wild
antl sweet sage , 'Indian Tea'
and many another plant to delight the housewife. Chickens
rise from the brush in which
on" may also see the trail of
brother bear.
But   the   flowers   of the field.
No pen   or brush    may do full
justice to    their glory.   It is as
though r, great    flag on wlv'eli
are spread all the colors of thc
nations   lay   outspread   before
one.   White   is   the yarrow, oi
"tansy" clumping and dotting
rose has   gone    but    their red
seetl berries remain. Here again
is the    blaze   of   the   fireweed.
Clu'mps of poplar,   willow and j
alder stand  knee     deep in the
grasses, the   actual  valley top |
is clothed with them: its slopes
carry autumn-like     tint where
frost   has   touched   susceptable |
plants. Look along the fold after    fold   of   descending   valley |
brink, and  there are    the foot-j
hills backed by the snowpeaks. |
Tli' sunlight,    fills in the light!
and shade of the picture, while
as though    concious of its im-|
pcrial  setting,  with  bridal  veil !
of morning   mist   marking its
course,   Hows   t.o    the   left   the!
mighty Peace.
