from Hazelton over the right-of-way
ol thc (i. T. P. Mr. Anderson and a
companion made the through journey
in about nineteen days, travelling
hy construction trains over the grade
and walking the balance of the journey.
Speaking of progress ou the west

that the work is being rapidly rustn}!
to completion'. The track is now
completed to Telkwa, 237 milcs west
of this    place.    The big    bridge at.

The Fraser river claimed another victim in the person of J. Wardner the
other day when a scow on which he
was employed sruck a rock in the Goat
Rapids, according to surviving members of the crew who reached South
Fort (leorge on Monday riight. Tlie
ill-fated scow was one of eighteen belonging to Foley. Welch & Stewart
which Were being brought under load
from the cache at 'fete Jaune to Fort
George. They all got through the
rapids safely except the one on which
j Wardner wus working. When he saw
i that a wreck was inevitable Wardner
| jumped overboard and was not seen
again. Thc other three occupants succeeded in jumping t'o another scow to
wliich they were roped, and they afterwards cut the ropes to get free of the
wreck. Wardner was from London,
England.
■ An official of Foley, Welch ■& Slew-1
art stated to The Herald that the company during tho present season had
lost over one hundred thousand dollars
worth of goods through the sinking of
scows or enough to build two steamboats. The chief cause of this heavy
loss he said was the fact that inexperienced men managed fo get in charge
of scows. A change is being inaugurated in the management of this department, however, and hereafter competent overseers will be stationed at
Miles 53 and 7'J to see that at least two
experienced mermen go out on each
scow. The company are sending about
one hundred scows a day cown the river loaded with machinery and provisions
for the lower construction camps.
.Manager Oaskill, , of the Fort
.CJeorge and Alberta Telephone and
Electric Company, reports that eon-
t ^l. table damage .has. b(*en done to
the company's lilies,up the river by
railway employees'falling timber on
the company's, wires. Prosecutions
will he instituted hy the company
against any persons guilty of the offense on whom evidence can be fixed.
Roy Macdonald, formerly manager of
the Fort George Hotel, shipped in a
fine automobile this week for hire work
here. This makes a total of about ten
public cars here. Mr. N. H. Wesley
recently arrived from the south with
his famous private Ford car, in which
he won the cross country long distance
endurance championship of the Northern Interior of British Columbia.
A trail, or wagon road, is badly
needed from the present ferry landing opposite the south east corner of
the Prince George townsite, following the river north on the east bank
to the right-of-way, a distance of
about a mile. We would draw the attention of the road superintendent to
this matter, as worthy of his best
considerarlon. There is a trail at
present meandering over a hill which
gives access to the right-of-way from
the ferry, but this is not at all
suitable for the present heavy traffic.

Houlder Creek is completed and is
now carrying a heavy traffic into the
Bulkley valley. The first regular train
to Telkwa will reach that point by
the fifteenth of the month. The grade
is practically completed to Burns
Lake, 156 miles west of Fort George
and according to Superintendent
Sheppard tho track will reach Decker
Lake, only 170 miles west of here,
by the end of tbe yenr. All the heavy
rock work along Burns LaKe is now
completed.
IU tween Burns Lake and Stella, a
distance of about 36 miles, the work
has not yet. been commenced, but
this section offers very little resistance to rapid construction, as the
country is level, ' and the work for
practically the entire distance is of
a very light nature.
There are many steam shovels all
alcing the. uncompleted portion of the
road, says Mr. Anderson, and these
machines are working night and day.
Contractor Bostrom, at Fraser Lake,
is working his shovel on the town-
site, and tho grade is advancing
steadily.
The shortage of supplies haa hold
up the work badly, hut the advent of
the steamboats on the upper Nechaco
Has facilitated progress very greatly.
Mr. Anderson in very enthusiastic,
over the immense possibilities of the
COflntry to the west. There is room,
he states-, for thousands of [im|lles,
nnd the goneral productiveness of the
section should draw a rapid settlement.

Rov. W. II, H. Elliott, of the Mission
of St. John the Divine, returned last
Saturday from attending the Synpd of
the Diocese of New Westminster, held
last month in Vancouver. He'brings
information of considerable interest to
the members of the Anglecial denominations here, regarding the formation
of a new diocese, of which the Cai iboo
will form part, a measure for which,
was passed at the recent Synod. The
Cariboo at present forms part of the
Diocese of New Westminster, but-on
account of its territorial area it is unwieldy, and such that the bishop cannot possibly reach every part of the
diocese at least once every twelve
months. No one is more conscious, of
this than Bishop DePencier, and with
his full concurrence and consent the
Synod decided to lake the proper steps
to divide the Diocese in the near future. It is hoped that during the present year a new Diocese, to bear tho
name of Cariboo, will be formed, with
its eastern boundary the Diocese of
Kootenay; the southern the international boundary; the western the summit, of the Cascade range; and thc
northern, the Diocese of Columbia,
nortii of Fort George. The British
Columbia Church Aid Society are backing the scheme in England, where thei
money to finance the new Bishopric of
Cariboo will bo found, and towards the
fall it is expected that the clergy and
lay delegates of the new Diocese will
be called to the lirst Synod. The election of a Bishopi however, is not likely, under tho' most favorable circumstances, to take place before the spring
of next year.
WEIWINfi BELLS.
Frank Wheeler, the Ashcroft Agent
of the British Columbia Express
Company, was amongst the arrivals
on the boat from the South last
Thursday. Mr. Wheeler's mission to
Fort George was a very important
and personal one, as he carried away
with him this morning to the home
he has built in .Ashcroft, one of
Fort George's fairest daughters, Miss
Nelly Angel, as his happy, blushing
bride. Mr. Wheeler is well known
here, where he is extremely popular,
having been at--.ane time agent for
the express company in their local
office. Miss Angell is the daughter
of Mr. and Mrs. Angell, of Fort
George, where the family have resided for a considerable period. The
young couple have a large circle of
friends hereabouts, who wish them
every happiness, a wish echoed noisily by this great family journal. The
wedding was a quiet affair, only attended by a few personal friends of
the contracting parties, but a reception accorded the groom by a select
party of bachelors after the ceremony
lacked nothing of warmth or hearty
honliemie to say nothing of eclat or
recherchoness.  (!)
The Lord's Day Advocate, a publication of tho Lord's Day Alliance, issued at Toronto the Good, launches
forth in its issue for the month of
June, in a tirade against the wickedness of Sunday baseball, and quotes
the schedule of games published betwoen South Fort George and Fort
George, most of which fall on Sundays, as the horrible example. It refers to the matter as follows:
"Upon an examination of the calendar it will be seen that all of these
games are'set for Sunday, with the exception of those two falling on national holidays, namely, May 24th and July
1st, and all the Sundays of the season
are occupied. The report does not say
that these games will be marked by an
admission fee. We learn, however,
that the competition is for a challenge
cup, to be given to the champion team
of the district. This is distinctly contrary to the Lord's Day Act. Section
7 says : • 'It shall not be lawful for any
person, on thu Lord's Day to
engage in any public game or contest
for gain, or for any prize or reward,'
etc. In view of this, therefore tbe
matter has been referred to the attorney-general's department.
"A correspondent writes as follows
with reference to this situation : 'In
spite of our best efforts and the 'word
of honor'-(unsolicited) of the manager
of the local team, all games are being
arranged for Sundays,' except as indicated above. 'The teams are oompet-
ing for a challenge cup for the championship of the district and the rivalry
is intense. If this schedule goes
through, it means tbat we have no
Sundays here during that period. Every one is a gala day, to be spent in
one town or the other, a day when men
may wager their week's earnings and
follow the game with a general carousal. Letting and drinking were very
prominent factors in some of the games
last year, and wo simply must not allow this schedule to be carried through
if it is possible to stop it, as I think it
is.' He adds that 'the baseball grounds
are located in the very heart of each
town, and in Fort George are immediately in front of the Presbyterian
church."

Two women named Jennie Green
and Haael Lawrence went brought
down here this week from Fraser
Lake on their way to the peniten-
tentiary at Kamloops, under a tis
months Sentence for selling liquor
illicitly.
This sentence was imposed by Government Agent. Hooston, of B^raser
Lake, on the evidence of a provincial
cor stable who secured thc evidence
against the women.
The women are held over here
owing to the illness of one of them.
It is alleged by these women that
a trap was laid for them by a provincial police officer, who, it appears, was acting under the orders
of the government agent. The women
assert that they were given to understand that they might sell' liquor
without fear 'of being molested.
We have no means of knowing the
exact status of the case as on lapply-
ing to police headquarters for a copy
of the evidence in the case, we were
informed that no transcript was
nvnliable as no evidence appears to
havo been taken down.
The Attorney General's department
is mnking an investigation of the
matter. It would appear that something in thc nature of the third degree method has been employed to
lnnd these unfortunate women in
jail.

Stanley Washburn, a well known

completed a new book, which comes
from his pen to describe the wonders

where he has spent many months.
Mr. Washburn is a son of the late
Senator Washburn, of Minneapolis,
and he is well known in this country
where he has large interests in coal
and timber lands. ...
A review, which we publish elsewhere in this issue, regarding his
book appears in an exchange, and
indicates'that the work is going to

those who appreciate the wonderful

South Fort George was defeated in
thn seventh game of the Carney Cup
series by the Fort George team on Ihj
Nechaco diamond on Sunday last. The
Fort Georgo boys won the game by a
score of nine runs to three.
The South Fort George boys went up
in tiie air early in the game, nnd the
improved pitching of Stone, the Nechaco twirier, helped towards the unprecedented defeat of our proud team.
This departure from tlie long list of
South Fort George victories on the
diamond tends to reawaken the interest
in baseball here, which has decreased
considerably since the series has progressed with a monotonous list of victories for the home team.

THE SABBATH WAS MADE FOR MAN.
THE "Lord's Day Advocate," a publication issued in Toronto by
the Lord's Day Alliance of Canada, contains, in the issue for
the past month an article upon Sunday baseball in Fort George,
which we publish in part elsewhere in these columns.
The Advocate carries upon its little page the aphorism "The
Sabbath Was Made for Man." This is an interesting feature of
the subject borne upon, as it seems to jar the' soundness of the
very principles propounded by the Advocate in its earnest attempt to prevent man from obtaining upon the Sabbath such
, harmless amusement as the spectacle of a baseball game. The Advocate tells with pride that the Alliance has successfully entreated the Attorney-General of this province to prevent Sunday hockey. It had invoked the powers to enforce a modiocre law in its
rottenest application, and it was proud of its achievement.
This seems to be another effort of certain puritanic gentry to
fasten upon Fort George the stigma of their vainglorious reproach. It is a pitiful demonstration of the inability of some
members of religious denominations to bring to a final analysis
the basic principle of right and wrong. And yet Adam and
Eve partook of the fruit from the tree of knowledge of good and
evil, and handed down to their progeny a tolerable smattering of
the knowledge which they acquired at such a cost in the Garden
of Eden!
By such bigoted and narrow-minded actions as the interruption
of Sunday games, the representatives of the various religious denominations throughout Western Canada stumbled blindly on their
way towards the ultimate failure of their work, Disregarding
the conditions which attach to a frontier country they clutch at
every available opportunity to regulate the public morals by a
careful search of the statutes made and provided, and imagine
that by such pitiful actions they are fulfilling their duty towards
God and their duty towards their neighbor.
We noticed this week, as we passed an up-town hotel, an earnest courageous man armed with a bible and hymn book preaching
his narrow conception of the Holy Gospel on the street. He appeared to be the butt of ridicule and even of mild abuse, yet doubtless there was not a man in the crowd who did not inwardly feel
some respect for the courage which impelled the street preacher
to face his sneering involuntary congregation, and seek in his
feeble way to awaken a responsive chord amongst them. To us
he is a better man than the conventional preacher who seeks to
bring the world to his way of thinking by invoking the law.
We are not upholding anything of a nature which might interfere with the peace of the Sabbath, for there are numbers of
good people who, after passing a listless, easy week, seek upon
the seventh day a Sabbath such as the correspondent of the Lord's
Day Advocate would make compulsory.   There are, however,
in a country such as this, hundreds of men who toil week in and
week out in camps, and temporary places of abode where there is
little of comfort, and no amusement whatsoever.   Will the good
men who carry the gospel abroad gainsay these men and the hundreds of others whose lives in such isolated communities as this
are not very eventful, the enjoyment of watching a fine, clean
sport upon the one day in the week when it is possible to hold it.
The Herald stands for Sunday baseball, but we believe that in
all instances such games should be played, as in this community,
on the outskirts of the town where the Sabbath of those who
frown upon such events shall remain undisturbed.

THE INCORPORATION MOVEMENT.      •
HPHE application for the municipal incorporation of the town of
South Fort George will be made to the British Columbia Government within the next few weeks.
The signatures of a vast number of property holders have been
appended to the petitions which have been circulated amongst
lot holders all over Canada for the promotion of the movement,
and every requirement of the statutes governing the matter has
been fulfilled.
It now remains to be seen what the attitude of the government
will be in regard to the incorporation movement. There is a feeling of some anxiety here in this connection, for it has been rumored persistently that a certain clique of men, headed by a
notorious real estate operator, have openly announced their intention to "buck" the movement, and have even gone so far as to
insolently assert that the matter will be "turned down" by the
government.
lt has been apparent at times, to the people of this country,
that certain individuals in "big business" have had an alarming
influence with members of the McBride government, and that,
this influence has at times been sufficiently powerful to operate to
the disadvantage of the public at large. This paper is published
by a conservative. We believe that the McBride government will
in time see the error of some of its actions in the administration
of various affairs in the Fort George country, and we believe,
having every confidence in the same government, that eventually
they will watch more closely the affairs of this section, and will
eliminate the influence of the lobby from their actions in regard
to future matters, when a proper realization of the influence of
this lobby is forced home to them.
In South Fort George, the unchallenged metropolis i of the
Northern Interior of British Columbia, the people are determined
to obtain the rights and privileges enjoyed under municipal organization. There appears to be no reason in the world why the
government should reject this application, and the matter should
go forward to its logical conclusion upon the presentation of tlie
petition for Letters Patent,

WESTERN REAL ESTATE
£i» IS NOT TOO HIGH
a»JJ
JU08
Winnipeg
Post, Knox McGee's Versatile Real Estate
Organ. Boosts for the West.
z
iSTy long ago, in discussing the extraordinary de-
lent of Western Canada, it was pointed out in all
Smi'ss by an eastern 3ournal tnat tne ^crease in val
a& .within a short space of time, of a piece of property
^fallacious because the property had not increased its
Inducing power.   A building lot, let us say, which has
fenced one hundred per cent, within a few months or
S years, was merely the cause of so much extra capi-
JI'Mftj* used up without any return.   It was even hint-
j&some, at least, of the stringency in the money
arket in the west might be laid to this cause.
This is a very favorite argument, and one which is con-
teiiy used by the bear element in progress, but is it
fly true?  Anybody who has any conception of the de-
>rit of Canada, anyone who realizes the rules-the
jehtific rules-under which the development of any new
■jntry must necessarily take place, knows that such an
.giiment, taken by itself, must fall to the ground.
"Silfch people lose sight of the fact that there is a vast
Ojint of undeveloped wealth in a new country such as
inaida, and particularly Western Canada. It is true that
value of land must be based upon what cari be pro-
IPljy its use.. But it is not true that a building lot is
loi^d, for all time, to remain at a certain fixed price.
'he, article I refer to complained that certain property in
western city had advanced enormously in price within a
if months.   It argued that those few months had not
ISed the earning power of that land.  And it is more
likely that its claim was correct.  It is quite improb-
lethat the increased rentals to be obtained by the use of
iWland had increased within the time stated commen-
fately with the increase in price.   Now, the complaint
at such an increase, in view of the absence of a propor-
ionate increase in rental value, is wrong and unjustified,
itself unjustified; for it loses sight of the fact that the
icreasement of value may be merely a catching up in.
jrice to what is actually the investment value, or the ren-
1 value.
In older countries, where the country is developed to
ftlH" capacity of production, such increases in price
$]tt;|)e impossible of justification.   In such a case, ren-
wtoe, alone would determine the price.  But in a new
comparatively undeveloped country the conditions are
•fc't.   I recall the time, not so very many years ago,
^,'Hvhen property on Portage avenue in Winnipeg
|orth thousands of dollars a front foot—and, mind
paying a good round profit on that value, in rental—
*lrth a mere hundred dollars a foot; and there was
%_ for it even at that price.   The records of the
jjfMs Bay Company, which owned the major portion
fwperty in that district, will show case after case
Wtlie property was taken back for non-payment of
Bteftts* or sold for taxes.   Yet that property today
M| handsomely on its enormously augmented price.
Anc] there is a very obvious reason for this apparent
l0nia'y*   In those days the country tributary to Winni-
'fi rUfy totally undeveloped.   Railway communication
^0I|)paratively sparse.   Immigration was a compara-
teknown quantity.   The farm lands of Manitoba
fttfg North West Territories, now Saskatchewan
4u%ta, were selling, if one can use the word where
OT-ffire so few, at anywhere from one to ten percent.
ffilges now obtaining.
I to t&6 farm lands' then sellin2 at from $L5° t0
iS!acre> are now worth $20 to $40 an acre, and they
| tained from building and renting multiplied.
The answer to the question as to whether prices and
rents are too high depends upon the answer which can be
given as to whether the development of Western Canada
has ceased. If Western Canada has reached its zenith, if
there is no more country to be settled, if there is no more
room for immigrants, if her farms have reached their ultimate capacity, and there is no more vacant land to be
occupied, then there can be no more business to be done
than is being done now on the land devoted to business
purposes, there can be no more increase in values, the rental to be obtained from property can go no higher.
But are these the facts ? Everyone knows that the settlement of Western Canada is only just begun. There is
room on the prairies for millions more than the whole of
the population of Canada today. The incoming people
must add to the aggregate business, just as their fore-
goers have done. Not until the farm lands'and'industrial possibilities of Western Canada have been so exploited,
and the values of its resources so enhanced that they have
been brought to a minimum investment basis, will the values of
property in Western Canada reach their maximum. To place a
standard of value at any particular moment on western real estate,
and to say in effect, thus far shalt thou go and no further, without taking into consideration the more or less incomplete stage of
development which the resources of Western Canada have reached, and without calculating, as far as may be, the effect of the
continuation of that development, is futile in the extreme.—Winnipeg Post.
..$ng a competence for their owners at that in-

sffi ^shot of the price question is merely what is the

In his poetical introduction the *uth-

July outlined on the companion map
! back of the book.   To quote the
t; "The grepter part of the Willi with which this unpretentious
je book deals, is that particular bit
the wilds which is now swiftly melt-
before the advance of  the  Grand

tbe wanderings of some six ium-

British Columbia.   Five thousand
>i of trail have known the hoofs of

J the reader will learn for himself,

Money Stringency and Opportunities
The money stringency, wliich ia felt throughout Canada at the present moment is causing
more or less alarm in the ranks of real estate men
and haa somewhat arrested the selling ability of
their staff; more particularly is this the ease in
the larger towns and cities, the selling of local
realty having in many instances reached very
near zero.
It very often happens, however, that when lo-
eal property in big towns is slow selling, property
offered in young'and growing centres, can be
much more readily Bold. This is because the buy-
era know that the younger places are more likely
to show an Increase on their purohase price, it)
the near future, and on account of conditions prevailing In the newer centre.'.
In no district does the truth of this apply more
fully than In Tort George, Ii. ('. The name Kort
George 1ms become a household word, not only
throughout Canada, but also frthn tho Atlantic to
the Pacific in the United States. Town lotf>,
which could be purchased two years ago for $11)0
to $300, huve been sold and re-sold at increasing
amounts on each occasion and at th*; present time
many of these lots are being held at ten times
their original value.
There is still ample room for the real estate man
to make money in this district; it, is wife to as>,eBt
that when the majority of other roal estate propositions are dead slow S'ili'ur, Kurt George properties command a ready sale, us it becomes Increasingly difficult for the real estate agent to soil
real estate, it becomes proportionately difficult for
him t« aCQUire propositions that will still find buyers in a dead market.
The real estate business, as at tho present conducted, practically compells the purchase, for resale of such property as will sell and sell quickly
and at profitable prices. It has been proved that
Fort (Jeorge really just Alls these conditions and
there are heaps of very excellent buys here, but
the real estate agent on the spot Is not the bank
of Montreal and cannot possibly purchase all the
good things on tbe market.
It behooves those wht) know by experiences ot
ha-, e heard of the experience of others, who have
made big profits buying Fort George realty, to get
in while there is yet time to buy at right prices.
I have left for sale a total of 118 lots in one sec-
section on Fort George townsite. I have also some
acreage, just across the river Opposite South Fort
George which has been sub-divided into 11-4 acre
lots. These will sell at a good profit as now divided, but could be made more profitable by further sud-dividlng, into the same tize as townsite
lots; it is close enough for this,
I have close-in acreage, ripe for sub-division
into 1 1-1 and 5 acres upwards ami I hi vj some of
the finest fram lamls in the district. If you are
Interested, get to, puBliiQSB and sen*3 me an overnight letter for particulars, prices will be right,

| This must seem like a funny land to live in and so it is, when we
\ consider that a few years ago Fort George was only a dot on the map;
| the center of a great lone land where the native Indians gathered from
':'» i.early all parts of the province to hold common  council, to draft their
| primitive and unwritten codes of law and to dispose of their furs to the
I managers of the Hudson Bay Post, who was to them at that time about
fi the only emblem that a white race existed.
a When we think of the same place today, that we can drop into a
| store like Kennedy,.Blair & Co. I*id.. and purchase almost any arti-
| cle lhat ..an be bought in the great city department stoics at almost the
| same price it makes us realize that we are living in a swift age indeed.
