effect that the steel must reach the bridge crossing opposite the G.T.P. townsite of Prince George hereby the
end of the present year,
Chief Engineer B. B. Kelliher, of the Grand Trunk
Pacific Railway, passed through the town last week on
his way over the work. Mr. Kelliher gave orders all
along the route to the contractors to rush the work as
rapidly as possible. Pile bridges will be put in at the
bridge crossings which threaten to hold up the work
pending the arrival of the steel, and a big effort will be
made all along the line to finish the work.

cattle during the winter hy handing
them a shot or two of "anabiose"
and then lay them away on shelves
for the winter. News of the discovery
follows:
Prof. Bakhametiefl af Moscow, in
Russia, announces that he has been
experimenting to determine the
source of life nnd has obtained some
remarkable results along a collateral
line, the suspension of life by the
use of a substance which he calls
"anahoisc."
He hns been a specialist for seventeen years in the study of hibernation nnd the results of cold on animals, particulary bears, antl his discoveries nre in this field.
He has progressed to a point, he
says, whan he can place an entire
herd of cattle in a state of suspended animation during the severe Russian winter, thereby saving the cost
of fodder, shelter and attendance,
and revive them in the spring in
good condition.
Thc treatment, which he has applied successfully to several d rterent
kinds of animals, reduces them to
total unconsciousness. Respiration
and digestion cease completely. They
are kept for months at a uniform
temperature, regulated hy a thermostat and when they are brought to
light humidity and warmth they recover consciousness, apparently not
weakened hy their experience.
Canadian Alpine Club and will make
the attempt on Mount Robson, the
highest mountain in the Canadian
Rockies, from different sides. Capt.
Farrar will ascend from the south and
Mr. Mumm from the east. Mr. Mumm
has had considerable experience in the
Canadian Rockies and has already
made two attempts on the monarch of
the range in company with Dr. Norman
Collie, of the London University, and
who will bring with him his Swiss
guide, Maurice Inderbinin. The transportation of the camp outfit will be in
the hands of Otto Brothers of Fitzhugh, the well-known guides, and Donald Phillips, one of the only two men
who have ever stood on the summit of
Mount Robson.
This information was learned from
A. 0. Wheeler, president of the Alpine
Club of Canada, who was in Edmonton
to meet Mr. Phillips and Otto Brothers.
Mr. Wheeler said that if weather favored the Alpinists they would have the
camp of their life at Robson. The
hoary giant, however, is noted for a
climate all his own and no forecast can
be attempted as to what the weather
will be like. The camp this year, said
Mr. Wheeler, is practically under the
auspices of the British Columbia government and of the Grand Trunk Pacific
railway, as the camp will be the opening of Mount Robson Park. In 1911
the members of the Alpine Club had an
expedition to Mount Robson and surveyed about 1200 square miles of the
country in this region.
On the present occasion there will be
three camps in the vicinity of Mount
Robson, and from them a great deal of
exploration work will be done. The
attendance is restricted to 100 and invitations have been extended to twenty-
live members of the English Alpine
Club to be present. Among the well-
known English climbers who have accepted the invitation in addition to
Capt. Farrar and Mr. Mumm are G.
down the river, At this point the contractors have recently built huge warehouses, and they are distributing the
construction camp equipment, and supplies from there. On the line between
Mile 53 and their new forwarding poinl
no independent freight is yet being
carried, however, and all freight consigned to merchants here must still be
carried by steamboat from Mile 53,
almost twice the distance by river necessary for the steamer run if arrangements can be made to have all freight
landed at Mile 129.
This arrangement can only be made
through the consent of the G. T. P.
and of the Railway Commission. The
permission of the railway company and
the contractors, we believe, can be obtained without much difficulty, but the
matter of the Railway Commission, if
such permission is to be asked, and in
view of the short period in which to
act, must be taken up immediately if
any sood is to result.
The effect of this matter, if the per-
misiion were granted even provisionally until the close of navigation, would
be the rapid supply of this territory
before the close of navigation. Where
the steamboats are now experiencing
much difficulty in making a round trip
in seven or eight days from Mile 53,
they could make the trip from Mile 129
in at out three days, and could more
than double the weekly delivery of independent freight into these towns for

\ the steamboat companies operating between here and the end of steel a suffi-
their crews since May.
Asked for an estimate of the number
1 of scows which have  come down river I
'since navigation opened, Mr. Williams
placed the total at about one thousand.
These scows cost about $250, contain
2000 feet of lumber and carry about 25
tons of freight.
A tremendous amount of freight has
been lost along the river through the
operations of inexperienced scow men.
The Bates Rogers Construction Company have last hundreds of tons of
cement for their bridge work, and
Foley. Welch & Stewart are reported
to have lost enough material to pay for
the construction of two large steamboats.
The river is now at a good stage for
scowing, said Mr. Williams, and he expects to land another thousand tons of
freight for his employers before the
end of the season.
NEW INDIAN HOUSES
cient quantity of freight for the winter
consumption cannot be stored here unless some arrangement is arrived at
with the railway people to assist the
freight delivery as far as possible.
The water in the river is now arriving at a stage when the navigation of
the Fraser river will be rendered most
difficult and the delivery of freight will
suffer accordingly,
The Herald believes that a strong
effort should be made to obtain the
opening of the line as far as possible
for independent freight.
Messrs. Bronger &  Flynn, the  contractors for the building of the Indian
village on  Reserve No. 2, fifteen miles
up the river, have practically completed
the  work,   and ,the   Indians  will   be
moved  to  their new homes by one of
the  steamboats   in   the   near future.
Thirty houses and a  church have been
built in a line  along the river front of
the beautiful Goose country ranchorie.
The Indians will move about the middle
of the month, as the contract will be
finished   a   full   two   weeks ahead of
time.

FORT GEORGE  HERALD
Published by the Northern Interior Printing Company, Limited
J. B. Daniell, President.
Devoted to the  Interests of the  Fort George  District and  the  Northern
Interior of British Columbia.
Subscriplioa $3.00 a Vnar iu Advance
Advertising Rales on Application
THE ventilation of lhe subject of public morals in this
section is being- carefully attended to by both press
and public. The motives which actuate the different
sources of criticism of this nauseous subject, are many
and varied. We have already shown fairly conclusively
that one element have used the presence of a segregated
area in this town as an argument against it in a townsite
fight, and this phase of the argument was carefully presented in the columns of the Vancouver Sun of recent
date, and that paper also used its version of the subject
tt) gratify a malicious vindictiveness towards Attorney
General Bowser.
This subject was old when Solomon, the wise man of
Israel, started his kingdom on the toboggan by introducing foreign women into his harem. It has been discussed, analysed and campaigned against ever since.
Misguided "reformers" have plunged into their blind war
against the ever-present evil, and, in these modern days,
have succeeded in numerous cases in driving their victims, the fallen women, from pillar to post amid the
smug plaudits of their kind.
The Herald has no desire to continue in a discourse upon this morbid subject. We believe that the presence of
the rotten things of the world are better dealt with by
deeds than by words. The subject of the social evil, as
an advancing civilization has dubbed the problem of the
prostitute, is too often made the excuse for gratifying
the desire of a section of the public for sensational and
unwholesome reading.
However, the subject having been so strongly commented upon in its application to the local situation, cannot be disregarded by us, without a further expression ' of opinion rendered necessary by recent developments.
Freed of the ulterior subjects of the different critics of
the problem's local issue, and deprived of the vainglorious
advertisement of the "moral reformers" and the "1 am
holier than thou" cry of the rival townsite, the matter
comes down to a police problem.
If a segregated district is deemed advisable, as it appears to be here at this stage of the country's development, then let a segregated area survive, but tiie spread
of the evil without let or hindrance, at the will of the
women owners of the tolerated brothels, carries the matter beyond the reach of proper control and should not be
permitted.
We cannot pass the subject by without referring to the
work of the average moral reformer. There is probably
no greater opportunity extant for a reformer to gratify
his ambition than those who seek to eradicate the social
evil. In spite of the fact that every prostitute is a criminal in the eyes of the law, and therefore a prey for all
moral reformers, they exist in acknowledged conditions
in every city of importance in the world. This proves
that a law has been made which cannot be properly applied, and should therefore be struck from the statutes,
as the solution to the perplexing question would appear
to lie deeper than the treatment of a natural sin which is
not confined by any means to one class, as a crime. But
the average reformer will turn almost every time to the
law which altereth not, and which enables the authorities
to deal with the sins of the fallen women as an enumerated crime, and he cries aloud for the enforcement of the
law which breeds disaster alsolute, for the jailing of these
unfortunate women would appear to be the most unnatural manner of bringing about their reformation.
The Herald is not going to advise a course of action
with regard to this matter, but we venture to remark
that in this city the whole matter could be better administered than it is, and we strongly stand against the permanent establishment of the segregated area in its present location. The women should be given six months to
move their houses to some more remote point.
The merchants of these towns would pursue a wise
course by taking up actively the matter of shipping their
freight to the actual end of steel if this arrangement can
possibly be made. The most careful and well ordered
arrangements by the merchants to provide against a
shortage of material here during the winter of 1913-14
will not avail against the demands upon the supply if this
supply is not landed before the close of navigation. It
would appear to us that in order to assure this delivery
of merchandise the usefulness of a shorter steamboat
haul should be taken advantage of if this is possible.

EXPERIMENTAL FARMS
Two new experimental farms are
promised British Columbia by the Dominion government. This was made
known this week by Mr. J. H. Grisdale,
director of this branch of Dominion
activities, who has arrived in Vuncouver. The first of these new farms is to
be at a point located alonp the line of
the Grand Trunk Pacific railway, probably in the Bulkley Valley, between
New Hazelton and Fort George. The
exact location has not yet been determined. Residents of Northern British
Columbia have petitioned for such a
farm, believing it will prove of great
benefit to settlers. One is also mentioned for the Okanagan Valley. The
location for this will probably be on the
Indian reserve near Summeriand.
SEALED TENDERS addressed to the
undersigned, and endorsed "Tender for Wharf at Vancouver, B.C.,"
will be received at this office until 4:00
P.M., on Thursday, August LH, 1918,
for the construction of a wharf at Vancouver, B.C.

SMITHERS WELCOMES
THE RAILWAY
People of Bulkley Valley Town
Greet Tracklaying Gang With
Big Ovation.
Probably the most remarkable
welcome ever given to a new
railroad in British Columbia was
that extended by that town to
contractors and workmen when
steel of the Grand Trunk Pacific
reached Smithers this week. Unbounded enthusiasm was shown
by Bulkley Valley residents, who
have waited for years for the
sight of a railway locomotive,
When   the   track-laying  machine rounded the curve east of
Smithers and poked its nose out
on the long tangent that passed
through the town, it was the signal   for  a   big  demonstration.
Signs of welcome were displayed
and people of Smithers and the
surrounding country made holiday.   They were not slow in displaying their enthusiasm and as
the men actually laying the rails
and spiking them to the ties were
the nearest  representatives  of
the railway available, they showered their attentions upon them,
"Bohunks" working upon the
track were treated like high railway  officials,   being  given  refreshments and cigars, congratulated upon   their  good work   in
bringing  the  steel  to Smithers
two weeks before the contractors
had promised to reach that point,
and made to feel that their efforts had an important part in
accomplishing the desired result.
These track laborers  had never
before experienced  such appreciation and althought the life of
a bohunk as a rule is not a happy
one, these men for once thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
Wm, Dempsey, in charge of
the track-laying machine, was
given an ovation. He said that
although he had been engaged in
work of this kind for 20 years,
he had never been given such a
welcome as he had received from
the Smithers people.
