SOUTH FORT GEORGE, B. C, SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 2, 1912.
$3-PER ANNUM
IE POWDER
The statement appearing in
the coast papers regarding the
supply of stumping powder to
settlers in the province is quite
incorrect, states Deputy Minister
of Agriculture, W. E. Scott.
"Stumping powder is not supplied free to members of the
farmers' institute, but at a re-
dued price of five dollaas per
case at the factory," he said.
"No circular has been sent out
by the department of agriculture
to that effect. An arrangement
inaugurated by the late Captain
Tatlow, when minister of agriculture, is still in eflfect, whereby under agreement between the
provincial government and the
powder companies any member
of a farmers' institute may secure, by giving his order to the
secretary of the institute accompanied by the cash, stumping
powder for land clearing and
bona fide agricultural purposes
at the reduced price of five dollars per case at the factory.
"Furthermore, by an arrangement between the provincial government and the C. P. R., only
half the regular freight is
charged on the institute powder,
lt will thus be seen that the
farmer who has land to clear receives a very valuable -concession
and one which I may safely
say is universally appreciated.
The farmer who orders one case,
pays approximately exactly the
same as the one who orders a
carload. The department will
also supply a carload and pay for
the same on the understanding
that payments be refunded as
sales are effected and also on the
distinct understanding that no
powder be given out to members
without cash being paid for
same.
"These concessions apply solely to farmers' institutes. Agricultural societies, other than farmers' institutes, cannot secure
institute powder. Whatever action may be contemplated by the
provincial government towards
the solution of the settlement of
our agricultural land, I am satisfied that the supplying of free
stumping powder has never been
entertained."
S. Smith, sawyer, late of Quesnel, who, in company, with his
wife, have improved the surroundings. With an early morning start the travellers made
Blackwater at 3 the second day,
where comfortable quarters and
meals were obtained. The third
lap, from Blackwater to Smithy's
road house, this side of Macken
zie's stopping place, a distance of
forty miles, was made in ten
hours, arriving there at 6, where
they say they had a spanking
good meal. An early start from
Smithy's the morning of the
fourth day brought them into
town at midday.
The roads were not the be3t
for walking, though there was no
snow on the ground. Goose lake
was frozen over. They could
have loaded a wagon with the
game they saw; but they had no
gun.
Mr. Mason is looking over the
country and will remain in town
all winter.
MUM FROM QUESNEL
HERE IS INVIGORATING
EXERCISE
J. Campbell, the druggist, and
«• M. Mason, from Oklahoma,
walked in from Quesnel last Tuesday midday, apparently notie the
worse for their trip. They arrived at Quesnel from Ashcroft
ln Blair's machine too late to
make connection with the regu-
w stage leaving for this point,
wth men talked the matter over
and as Campbell is a 9 3-4 man
°n his feet, they decided to walk
the 110 miles. Leaving Quesnel
JJ the morning they arrived at
^oose lake at 2 in the afternoon,
where the balance of the day and
n'Khtwas spent. This road house

By letting off a tremendous
charge on the Ilth in blasting
operations on the construction of
the new Canadian line through
Fraser Canon, the contractors
brought down about a thousand
feet of poles and lines of the
Canadian Pacific railway telegraphs and also littered the permanent way of that company"
with rocks and debris. Not long
ago the Canadian Pacific had to
go the British Columbia courts to
get an order restraining damages
of this nature in the canon of the
Fraser river, where the two lines
run side by side. An action for
damages will probably result.
50 PER CENT OF G. T. P.
GRADE IS COMPLETED
THROUGH MOUNTAINS
While progress along the G. T.
P, through the mountains from
here to the Cache, may appear
slow to the man on the raft, yet
much work is being done,
Fully 50 per cent, of the grading between these two points has
been completed, according W. R.
Smith, an engineer of the Grand
Trunk, stationed at the Cache.
The end of steel is some six
miles beyond Tete Jaune. The
bridge over the Fraser river
should be completed some time
next January and from that time
onward the laying of steel will go
forward at a good rate. Another
bridge is required at the Shu-
swap river.
The passenger trains running
into the Cache from the east are
well filled and a lot of people are
coming to look over the country.
Resident engineers at Tete
Jaune are leaving there and taking up residencies all along the
line west of Fort George.
Provided no unforeseen obstacles occur, steel should be at the
confluence of the Fraser and Nechaco next summer. Much depends on the work done this winter. A heavy snow fall would
not facilitate matters,
To the west of the reserve,
right-of-way clearing is fast approaching Fraser lake, and Mr.
George Hardie, the contractor,
believes the entire right-of-way
to Hazelton will be cleaned up
by May,
THE REAPPEARANCE OF THE tfOAD
HOUSE
With the approachof snow on
land and ice in the water the
road house has awakened to the
patter of the stage horse and the
jingle of its bells. Late arrivals
say there is a marked improvement noticeable in the standard
of meals this season—that the
ubiquitous bean, so far, is not
being worked to death. Last season travellers—the wise old owls
—in a good many instances, carried their own supplies with
them, and merely paid for the
convenience of the stove and
bunk accommodation. The wisdom of this is evident to anyone
who has travelled the Blackwater
road from Quesnel to this point.
But things have changed,
it appears, and suitable meals
can now be obtained at all the
road houses. Women have worked
this change.   God bless 'em.
Three Railroad
Men Drowned
at Lytton
A. R. Talmadge, superintendent for Armstrong, Morrison &
Co., and A. Collery, andJ.Erick-
son, employees of the above Co.,
were drowned at Lytton on Tuesday of last week, while attempting to cross the Fraser in a ferry.
They-were making their first
trip with a ferry at the C. N. R.
bridge now being built about
half a mile below Lytton. The
ferry barge tipped and the men
jumped to a skiff that lay alongside the ferry. The skiff upset,
throwing all the men into the
water. Three managed to swim
ashore, but the other three were
drowned. One body has-been recovered, but the other two have
not yet been found.
The accident was due to the
cable at one end of the scow
slipping loose and allowing the
barge to float away. It was
caught five miles down stream.
evidence, stated that to allow the
export of heads was one of the surest
ways of depleting the country of game,
and permission for export was only
recommended in the case of museums
and scientific societies, ln the present
instance, Malfet had asked for permission but it had not been granted.
Advices received by Geo. E. McLaughlin from the public works engineer,
Victoria, confirms the report that the
bridge crossing the Praser at .the reserve will be both traffic and rail, and
that all roads constructed or promulgated in the immediate vicinity of the
bridge will be made to conform to the
new structure, which is described as
being one of the biggest in inland B.C.
The correspondent stated that he had
been informed by the railway people
that work on the bridge would proceed
this winter.
The Quesnel arrived at the Gardens
yesterday witti^some thirty tons of
freight. This will be lightered up from
there on scows, and the steamer
brought up later. Ice was running in
the river all day yesterday and the
outlook for the Chilcotin or any other
boat ia meagre. TheTion-arrival of
this boat means that a lot of freight
will have to be stored at Quesnel,
where, it is understood, owners of
same will have to build warehouse accommodation for their goods, through
lack of insufficient premises obtainable
there.
Whereaboutsof
F. E. Whyte
Wanted
The whereabouts of one Frank E.
White, of Dorset, England, are anxiously sought by his sister E. White.
The last heard of him he was working
with a survey party about 50 miles
northwest of Barkerville, Cariboo, according to an extract from one of his
letters, dated December 18,1910, which
says:"The surveyor, myself and two
Scotchmen comprise the party, and we
have a month or six weeks' work yet,
so shall not be able to write again until I finish the job." Any person wishing to relieve a distressed sister and
mother, through knowledge of the
whereabouts of the missing man, can
do so by informing the local police, or
writing to his home address, which is
Minterne, Cerne Abbas, Dorset, England.
Unusual Occurrence
The unusual occurrence of the Crown
entering an appeal from an unsuccessful police court prosecution took place
before Judge Mclnnes at Vancouver in
the case of Louis A. Malfet, a taxidermist, who was recently acquitted in the
police court by Maristrate Shaw on a
charge of breaking the game laws.
As a result of the appeal,' the police
court finding was upset, and a conviction and fine of $50 entered instead.
The offence charged against Malfet
was in connection with a quantity of
heads of mule deer, mountain goat,
coast deer, pheasants and other game
birds, which were seized by the game
wardens while in transit from Malfet's
store to an adress in Troy, N. Y. The
exportation of heads, save those shot
by duly licensed hunters, is forbidden
by the game act.
Game Warden Bryan Williams, in hit
W.A. Richardson, M.D., head medical
authority for Foley, Welch & Stewart,
or> Grand Trunk construction, with
headquarters during the past season at
Tete Jaune Cache, came down the river
Thursday, and the following day left
by canoe with George Williams as pilot.
The doctor will spend some time at the
coast and return about Christmas to
South Fort George, where extensive
medical headquarters will be established
for the care of railway men and others
dependent on the big road. The site
has already been selected.
CHANCE IN THE ARRIVAL
AND DEPARTURE OF
STAGES
The arrival and departure of
the stage has bjen altered one
day from its previous schedule.
It formerly left on Mondays and
Thursdays. The new order reads
Tuesdays and Fridays.
It arrives, in consequence, also
one day later—Wednesdays and
Saturdays.
The change, is renderred necessary by the difficulty encountered
in crossing the river at Quesnel
at this time of the year. Passengers and express matter from
the south, arriving the night previous to the departure of the
stage for here, .allowed little
or no time for the transfer of the
increased business coming over
the road. The change is to meet
the new order of things.
In-bound passengers will spend
one day in Quesnel, where formerly they did not.
Out-bound passengers, who formerly laid over a day at Quesnel, under the new arrangement,
will not. The change is an improvement.
The new service was inaugurated yesterday—Friday.
R. J. Ferguson of Calgary, is in
Edmonton, back from an automobile
trip of 1,800 miles in the north country,
being the first to drive a machine into
the Peace River district, going as fpr
as Grouard, Alta., at tho head of Lesser
Slave lake. He carried gasoline and
supplies for the entire trip on the car.
The best day's run was from Grouard
to Dunvegan, 168 miles, the lowest
being 90 miles in seven hours.

The plans for the town on the
reserve — the G. T. P. — have
passed out of the hands of the
landscape architects and are now
in the possession of the railway
officials for approval. Changes
in the original, brought about by
the inclusion of the Hudson's
Bay land in the plans, after the
architects'.[had submitted a design, is responsible for considerable of the delay.
The alterations were 'made at
the instigation of the Land commissioner of the Hudson's Bay,
Winnipeg, to have the company's
land included in the survey, and
put on the market jointly with
the railway and the government.
There is no reversionary right
to the government in this land,
it having been granted and deeded as Fort George, long before
confederation came to pass, and
the present law respecting town-
sites does not cover it. The area
includes 90 acres, the choicest in
point of value, and for which two
thousand dollars an acre was refused by the company last spring.
The intention of placing this
land on the market jointly with
the reserve means more to South
than if the other course was
adopted, for it means that this
tract will not remain unoccupied
and form a barrier to the consolidation of both places. It means,
furthermore, that streets and allays and other avenues will be
opened up simultaneously with
streets on the reserve.
While no announcement of the
date by the railway company as
to when the sale of the reserve
will take place, it is the purpose
of the company to do so as soon
as plans are completed and a division arranged with the British
Columbia government. It is not
unlikely that next May will be
the time.
'•Rosolind of Old Basing," a through-
bred Jersey, owned by Julian Sharman
of Red Deer, 100 miles south of Edmonton, has just won the title of champion
dairy cow of the British Empire, producing $1,007.50 worth of cream and
milk in three years.
Big Indian Fair
for Spokane
Next Year
Representatives of every Indian tribe
in North America will be invited to
participate in a big congress to be held
in Spokane next autumn, having for its
purpose the advancement of the Indian's interests by through co-operation.
Each tribe will be asked to send five
accredited representatives, who, with
the large attendance of Pacific Northwest tribes assured are expected to be
one of the biggest gatherings known iu
modern Indian history.
Mrs d. E. McElory has arrived safely
at her old home in. Coytesville, New
Jersey.
Vean Gregg, star pitiler for the
Cleveland American League team, arrived in Edmonton ten days ago, earring
a contract from the Naps for 1918 and
a kit of plasterer's tools, lie was accompanied by his father, formerly of
Lewiston, Idaho. He will go into the
contracting business thero during the
winter und early spring months, returning to Cleveland in time for the
training season.
A. G. Hamilton is at Stuart Lake,
overlooking his store business there. .

George and the entire Northern interior.
J. B. DANIELL. Editor.
The   uppermost topic in the;
United States   at the  present
time—the election-with another;
week, will have passed into his- j
tory; and one of the most sensa- j
tional contests in the life of the
republic terminated.   What the,
outcome will be at the polls next
Tuesday is a hard matter to con-;
jecture, but those best informed
and in a position to hazard a forecast of the result, place the three
presidential candidates in the following order: Wilson, Roosevelt, j
Taft.   Seventy-five per cent of
the American newspapers concede the election to the Democratic nominee.    The attempted assassination     of     Ex-president
Roosevelt is an event which has
upset the table  of   calculation
in the Republican machine camp
and many defections to Roosevelt in consequence have resulted.   How many and how strong
will be  this   sympathetic vote
is a problem not easily answered;
but should Roosevelt head the
poll, the result will be ascribed,
in a great measure, to the act of
the mad man.
Another feature which is entering largely into political affairs across the line is the unprecedented growth of socialistic
strength in every community.
This movement appears to be a
settled and permanent force for
future reckoning by both great
parties, and especially so by the
Democratic one, the members of
which appear to be more susceptible to radical teachings than
the conservative Republicans. It
is an another factor in Wilson's
campaign causing uneasiness,
If the Democrats are unable to
elect their man next Tuesday, in
the face of the greatest split
the Republican party has ever experienced, it is hard to see how
they can ever hope for success.
However the result, its termination will be welcomed not only
by Americans, but likewise by
Canadians, for it will afford a resumption of commercial activity
on both sides of the line.

The area will be 150x60, enclosed, and

Notice to Contractors
Services in the Presbyterian church
have been altered for the winter months
m from 7.30 in the evening to 3.30 in tlie
afternoon.   They will be preceded by
Sunday-school at 2.30.
Mrs. Geo. E. McLaughlin, who has
been suffering from acute rheumatic
pains in her left arm the last month,
has had the arm placed in a plaster of
pans cast, an expedient resorted to,
not only to pacify the pain, but to ac.
as a shield. The medical limit prescribed for the continuance of this
treatment is one month, and to a person
of the active temperament of Mrs.
McLaughlin it must be a double hardship to be denied the use of one arm
for so long a time.
Dr. Evans has returned to South
Fort George after several months'
absence in Winnipeg and the coast.

Trav.l from thc Cache to South Fort
George, by canoe, raft and scow, is increasing daily, and doubtless will continue so until the river freezes, whwh
may come at any time. The number
arriving her* last Thursday was fifty,
and is possibly the largest number that
has arrived in any one day. Ninety per
cent, of them are railroad laborers, and
all have time cheques to cash. None of
the down-river arrivals go to Central,
for the reason that there is nothing at
Central except toombstones to attract
them. And these men are too vigorous
to find lodgement in a graveyard a section long with bigger width. It is understood several businessmen are about
to desert Hammond's desert and come
P. G. B. Bodeker, an authority on
river navigation, has arranged a canoe
service between here an Quesnel for
the remainder of the season. He says
travellers will be able to go down river

inconvenience.
