r'P him to pieces.
After five years of work as a
pioneer publisher, I lay aside my
pen and leave the editorial chair.
The circumstances which actuate
this departure from the work
which I have adopted are sordid
and commercial, but in these
ultra practical days all ideals,
desires and aims in life are rendered subservient to the reins of
commerce when financial considerations assume significance.
So it is with myself. After a
somewhat chequered journalistic
career, in which my bitterest
enemy cannot say I have ever
strayed aside from the course
wherein I considered my duty
lay, I find myself, as a result of
these principles—which, without
maudlin self-praise, I can assure
you are rare in the modern newspaper world- -in the position of
the under dog in a fight in which
I had endeavored to aid the unfortunate public. A libel suit
in which I entered last year,
brought by a strong company
against which I made charges
of uncommercial conduct, cost
me over six thousand dollars to
fight. I lost. Whether I am
vindicated by present condi-
tins I leave it to the public to
judge. In the great jury room
wherein public opinion returns
the verdict the considerations of
legal red tape are flung aside in
contempt, and I thank God for
this.
With a heavy indebtedness,
incurred in litigation, burdening
The Herald, it has been hard indeed to bring this small paper
abreast of the times. My readers may not know that in addition to the editorial work in this
office I have worked week by
week in the press room and at
the keyboard of the typesetting
machine. When the opportunity
was presented this week for a
sale of The Herald, and being
assured   that   the   purchasers interests of the wonderful little
would do their utmost towards town of South Fort George. The
the upbuilding of this paper, in
which I feel a personal interest
hard to analyze, I sold without
hesitation to the gentlemen who
will succeed me here,
The generous support which
has always been given to this
paper I trust will continue to my
successors. The individuality of
the man behind a paper must
always count for something, but
the public are quick to recognize
ability and to read between the
lines of the printed page. I have
no doubt that the future editorial policy of this paper will be
clear-cut and precise; that, as
heretofore, it will continue to
assist in the upbuilding of this
town and district according to
its lights, and so it will deserve
the unqualified support of the
rapid growth and development
of this place has anchored development here upon such solid
lines that no matter how important future business sections will
become, their importance cannot
be complete without direct avenues of communication to this
section of the city.
The people of South Fort
George must be numbered
amongst the virile communities
of the wide-awake western
world, Ever ready to encourage
development and ambitious to
promote the future greatness of
their town, the citizens of this
community may well be proud of
the results achieved by their progressive policy and its fruition.
And amongst these people I
have lived for many years.   I

"At present," he said, "work is proceeding more rapidly than at any tin.e
since construction commenced. Over
0500 men are employed. The gap between the two ends of steel, less th; n
3W miles, is rapidly being closed and
the rough grading has been done nearly
all the way. Trains are running from
Edmonton to McBride and east from

After weary years of old Hudson's Bay post, where a
doubt, conflicting interests, on- few trappers and G.T.P. engi-
troversy and criticism the future' neers, would laughingly discuss
Prince George has emerged as the future possibilities of   the
one of the recognized "futures"
of the North American continent.
Wise, well-versed business men
both in the east and the west
have marked their faith in the
future of this place by heavily
investing. The stability of the
future town is assured even now,
although the townsite of the
future is at present a barren
common littered with stakes
which separate the sites of future enterprises: sites selling
amongst the best class of investors for hundreds of dollars a
front foot. It is an extraordinary condition and typical of
western enterprise and the ability of the present generation to
accurately forecast the future
and to reap a benefit thereby.
I sincerely hope that The Herald will continue to advance the
wilderness in which we lived,
and I am a young man and expect to see in my lifetime a great
city grown up here, and a wonderful, fertile country where the
Indians used to hunt unchallenged. Amongst the men of
the old days there are many
whose friendship is a thing tested and true. Through the sunshine and the shadows these
friendships have never wavered
nor been found wanting. They
are the jewels in my chain of
memory.
And so I step aside. What the
future holds for me I cannot tell.
Whether the call of the "newspaper business" will again prove
too strong I cannot say, but I
shall never again publish in this
town, as a clause in the selling
agreement forbids this, |
The great difference of opinion as to;
the value of land held by an expropriating railway company, and by tha
owner, who is being dispossessed, waSr
emphasized before Chief Justice Hun-,
ter at Vancouver when the Grand
Trunk Pacific Railway Company asked
for a warrant of possession of thirty-
three acres near Fort George townsite,
owned by George Ovasko. The railway
produced an affidavit from A. R. Barrow a land surveyor, stating that $3000
was a fair price for the land and offered
to pay that amount into court. Mr.
Ovasko, on the other band, put in an
affidavit that he values the land at
$16,000.
"You might just as well put them in
a hat and shake them up," said the
chief justice, who ordered that a sum
of $4500 be deposited in court by the
railway, and that arbitration proceedings be commenced.
Mr. Martin Griffin appeared for the
railway, and Mr. E. A. Dickie for Mr.
Ovasko.
Mr. and Mrs. George McLaughlin
•ntertained a large number of guests
at their pretty home on Fourth street
last Wednesday evening. The pleasant
event was in honor of Mr. Charles Miller, of Toronto.
Grading on the Miller section of
Prince George is in full swing. Six
teams commenced work on London
street last Monday, and the streets
have been plowed, broken up and graded along London to Bowser street and
west along Bowser to Queen. Mr.
Miller has added a further improvement by planting large sign posts at
the street corners showing the names
of the streets and their directions.
There are those who will sigh
in relief at this news; some will-
smile; but there are some again
who will regret; and who can
say who pays the greatest com*
pliment? ■►••**
Perhaps I have erred in the
opinion of some, yet others will
say I "played the game," but
one and all, I believe, will admit
that The Herald has naught to
be ashamed of.
And thanking my advertisers,
my patrons and my friends for
their consideration in the past,
and wishing my successors every
consideration and success, I bow
myself out.

McCONNELL IN CARIBOO.
John P. McConnell, editor of the Vancouver Sun, has
been scouring the Cariboo District in search of '•material" to support his miserable attempts to discredit the
McBride government by "exposing" the corruptness of
the Conservative party. Listening to the loose-lipped
street corner loafer, with a grudge against the administration, appears to have fulfilled the mission of the Vancouver editor .when in Cariboo recently, for our
knowledge of this district, old and new, impresses us
with the idea that from such sources he has gathered the
data which lends itself so readily to the tracing of webs
of iniquity at the point of his laboring pen. Weaving a
tortuous mesh of wrong-doing, and spinning the pen-
traced web hither and thither wherever his informants
have pointed to "doins" which suggested deep political
corruption and maladministration, he has conjured in the
centre of the web, waiting with gleaming eyes and quivering form the coming of the flies, the giant spider of
the Cariboo, one John Anderson Fraser, M.L.A. According to the Vancouver scribe the baseness of our excellent member may not be readily plumbed. According
to John P. McConnell, Mr. Fraser is "king" of the Cariboo. Yielding a fairy-tale power at Quesnel, he depicts
our member as swaying the district to his iron will, and
manipulating the public expenditures to his own particular advantage.
Without visiting the Fort George section of the district, the importance of which relegates the rest of the
Cariboo into oblivion, the Sun editor, loaded with the
reports of his mud-wallowing informants, brands this
city with a danger mark on the map of British Columbia.
This is not the first time, however, that John P. McConnell has visited the Cariboo district. The extraordinary series of articles which appeared in his paper, the
Saturday Sunset, during the latter part of the year 1910,
still stand out vividly in the memory of people in the
Cariboo for their vindictive abuse of well-known and
honorable gentlemen, and their pitiful attempt to justify
the attitude of the Sunset towards certain unsavory promotions. How any journalist can expect to be taken
seriously, or anticipate that the public will give heed to
his opinions, when it is a matter of common knowledge
that in the past his written word has been absolutely
discredited, we cannot see. But John P. McConnell is no
ordinary man. He is encased in an armor of egotism
which diverts the shafts of criticism from his well-satisfied vitals. He should take from a case of his largest
type the capital letter "I" and set it prominently at the
head of his editorial column.
Regarding  the  charges which John P. McConnell
makes against the government with respect to their
policy in matters regarding South Fort George, we cannot  see  any necessity for prolonged  argument.   He
charges a "government favorite" with having a monopoly
in the liquor business here, and refers to the red-light
district as a slur upon the fair name of our city, blaming
the government therefor.   The hotel to which the reference regarding the liquor monopoly is made was built in
1910.   A hotel was an absolute necessity here when the
town began, and without a liquor licence it was not to be
expected that the town would ever have one in those
days.   Under an agreement with the G.T.P. the government should not issue licences within so many miles of
the construction zone, and the exceptions of the necessary hotels ahead of the steel cannot in justice be suspended when steel arrives.   The policy of not granting
new licences we cannot agree with, as one hotel can sell
as much liquor as a number, but it must be conceded that
it would be difficult to know where to stop if exceptions
to a general policy were made.   This is strongly exemplified by the fact that this issue carries an advertisement
in which the Hudson's Bay Company applies for a wholesale liquor licence here, but the application is made for a
period when it is anticipated that steel will have passed
this point.
The ravings of John P. McConnell are entitled to no
more consideration in this district than the whimpering
of a whipped cur. The time may come when the writer
will have the opportunity of dealing with this assertion
from a public platform.

GRAZING PRIVILEGES
FOR SICK RAISERS
The Forest Branch of the Department of Lands, which has
been entrusted with the administration of the grazing policy of
the provincial government, recently announced by the Hon.
W. R. Ross, minister of lands,
has given notice that it is in a
position to consider applications
of stockmen and ranchers for
grazing permits on the unoccupied Crown lands of British Columbia.
These permits will specify the
kind and quantity of stock and
the exact locality on which the
animals will be allowed to run.
Bona-fide settlers and ranchers
will receive the first consideration in the issuance of permits,
and will be permitted to range
a reasonable number of head
free of charge. For large herds
the fees for the present will be
only 10c per head per annum for
cattle and 2c for sheep. These
nominal charges have been established by the minister of
lands, as it is the policy of the
government to nurture the industry until it can stand alone,
before requiring payment in proportion to the actual commercial
value of the grazing privileges.

[E will offer for sale in the next three weeks a portion of
D. L. 2062, in one and a quarter acre tracts at from Five
to Eight Hundred Dollars an acre.
This property, formerly known as Hamilton Farm, is strategically located at the confluence of the Fraser and Nechaco rivers,
and almost directly opposite the eastern boundary of the G. T. P.
townsite of Prince George, and less than three-quarters of a
mile from the business centre.
All the land lays level and the river front will make some of
the choicest mill and factory sites in the new city whilst the back
portion will be sold as ideal residence property as soon as transportation facilities are obtained, which will be in the near future.
The day is not far distant when property of this kind will be
extremely hard to purchase, as water front property, where
navigation is considered at all, is more valuable than land further
inland, and we have over a mile frontage about ten to thirty feet
above the river banks.
As this property will be sold while it lasts in all the big cities
both in the east and west you would do well to place your order
immediately to either the

A case of general interest to
farmers and others throughout
British Columbia was recently
brought under the Seed Control
Act when the Sylvester Seed
Company of Victoria was convicted of selling cabbage seed of
low vitality without indicating
the percentage of germination
of the same. Under section ten
of the Dominion Seed Control
Act all farm and vegetable seeds
which germinate lower than
two-thirds thc standard vitality
of good seed for that particular
variety must be labelled with the
percentage of germination.
It is the intention of the Do
minion Department of Agricul
ture to strictly enforce all the
provisions of the Seed Act of
1911, and any one handling seed
should see to it that their seed
complies with this Act. The
Dominion Seed Laboratory at
Calgary, Alberta, is at the service of any one desirous of having seed tested, either for vitality or weed seeds. Copies of the
Act and information as to the
same may be obtained from the
Dominion Seed Laboratory, Calgary, Alta.
STEEL FOR UIIYDOCK AT RUPERT
On board the British steamer,
Bonaventura, is a special shipment of 500 tons of structural
steel to be used in connection
with the construction of the
huge floating drydock at Prince
Rupert. This is the first shipment of the kind that has yet
been sent around the South
American coast for the structure
now well under way at the
northern port, although it is understood other similar consignments will find their way to the
North Pacific by other steamers.
In addition to the big consignment of steel for the drydock,
the Buenaventura has on board
2400 tons of steel rails for G.T.P.
construction work, which will be
discharged at Prince Rupert.
The inbound steamer will proceed north after she has discharged at Victoria and Vancouver.

British Columbia will this year have
,vact figures on  the extent of land
" der cultivation and data on agricul-
.ural objects, such as value of crops
a„d products of the agricultural industries. For the first time in the history
of the province the Department of Agriculture wi" have a complete state-
ment of what has been accomplished in
thia line.
Col. D. B. Wilkins, of Toronto, president of the Bankers' Association of
Canada, is a recent visitor to British
Columbia, and was greatly impressed
by the province. He says British Columbia has more in the way of natural
advantages than any of the other provinces of the Dominion, and that her
future will outshine most of the others
regardless of their big start.
German investors are more interested
in British Columbia than in any other
part of Canada, according to Baron
Van Campe, who recently arrived at
Montreal on his way west. He says
the great resources of Canada's Pacific
Coast province are only beginning to
be developed and he expected to see
great advancement here with the opening of the Panama Canal.
Australia claims to lead not only the
British Empire but the world in ,the
value of its per eapita production.
During the past year that country ..produced $210 for every one of it* population. British Columbia can make a
much better showing; than that, for
according to Mr. Price EHUon, minister
of finance, this province produced $800
for every man, woman and child during 1912.

The Grand Trunk Pacific Railway Company are
now disposing: of the-remaining portion oi their
lots in the new town of Willow River at the confluence of the Fraser, Salmon and Willow rivers.
By those who are in close tquch of the true conditions, this new town is consid&red to be one of
future importance in Central British Columbia.
In investing in Willow River .property be sure
that your property comes to you direct from the
Grand Trunk Pacific Railway Company-make no
mistake in this. There is only one official and
original Grand Trunk Pacific Railway town of
Willow River at the confluence of the Fraser,

A man named Edwards, nn old-timer
here, was taken to New Westminster
from this place last Thursday, having
h.st his reason. Edwards has for pome
time past been occupying a piece of
land in the Willow river section under

the land covered hy his record was r.ot
that, on which he was residing and on
which he had done large improvements.
ll is believed that the loss of his land,

worked upon an already unbalanced

Statistics Show that Tremendous Growth of
Western Canadian Cities Creates More
Wealth Than Any Other Source.
Anyone who looks over the statistics showing the growth of Canadian
cities in the last ten or twelve
yoars nnd also the great increase in
land values in and around these cities,
will readily acknowledge that no
other form of investment could possibly equal tbis for profits.
The following list shows the growth
of Canadian cities within the last
ton years:
Edmonton    20C0
Regina   I400
Calgary   975
Vancouver      270
Winnipeg    1T8
Toronto     8**
Montreal   74
Hamilton      f>i>
Victoria   4B
Ottawa   M
London   42
Quebec   ■■■■>
Halifax      12
Think, if you can, what tremendous
profits must have been realized from
the real estate in any of the above
cities, but particularly in the new,
where the cities have grown the fastest. In twelve years time values have
increased to such an extent that $|r00
lots in Vancouver have sold (or $20-
000. Lots in Calgary which sold for
$100 in 1901, are today worth $75,-
000. Lots in Edmonton have duplicated what has been done in Calgary.
$100 lots in Saskatoon have increased
to $30,000. It will be seen from the
above figures that an investment in
real estate as the above stands alone.
There is no doubt that in tlie next
few years a repetition ot this wonderful increase in land values will
take place at Prince George whose
wonderful opportunities as an agricultural, mixed farming and mining
country are known the world over.
Anyone desirioua of participating in
such profits Bhould call or write
