VOLUME 1,   NO. 50
SOUTH   FORT   GEORGE,   B.C.,   SEPTEMBER   2,   1911
Fort George, Indian Reserve No.l, Comprising 1366 acres, situated at the junction of the Frasfer aud Nechaco Rivers, was sold by the
Fort George Indians last Tuesday night to an individual named F. G. D. Durnford, whom circumstances indicate to be acting as agent for
the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway Company. The Consideration in the agreement was the sum of $100,000. Every member of the tribe,
with the exception of three Indians, signed the agreement-of-sale.
The muss meeting of tho Fort George Indians, held in Chief Loui's house on the lndiun Reserve lust Tuesday night, resulted in
n decision by tho bund lo sell the reserve.
A new factor in thu situation appeared, in
the presei.ee of it gentleman named F. G'.
1). Durnford, who acted as nominal purchaser. Thero were present at Use sale, Father
Cocola, thc Indian missionary, who bus
had charge of the affair in regard to the
protection of the Indian's interests, F. (I.
I). Durnford, acting as agent for the purchasers, L. (I. MacHallie, manager of the Bank
of li. N. A. here, who witnessed the signatures, and the Indians. Father Cocola''s instructions from the Department were, we
understand, to sell the reserve in tlic best
interests of his charges. Mr. Durnford has
been living at the Hudson's Bay post here
for several weeks past, anil it wins generally
understood here that he was waiting a favorable opportunity to continue a tour of
the Northern Interior by way of the Bulk-
ley valley and Hazelton. His connection
with the Indian reserve deal was unknown
until he appeared upon to scene at the Indian conference in the capacity of purchaser. Mr. Durnford addressed the Indians at,
some length upon his desire to purchase the
reserve for the sum of 81(10,000. Pierre Roi,
a French half-breed acted as interpreter.
Father Cocola, to whom the interpreter
conversed in French, did not address the
gathering. Threi' Indians, headed by Joe.
Quah, the self-styled second chief of the
tribe, refused' to sign the agreement, his
two supporters being his son and son-in-
law. Quah has always obstructed the sale,
thinking that by so doing he would force
lhc white men to pay an enormous price.
The New Northern Hotel is now completely framed and covered in. Work on the
interior is progressing rapidly.
It. W. Campbell, representing the Saskatchewan Flour Mills, of Moose .law, was
amongst   the arrivals on Thursday hist.
The bill at the Furt I leorge Theatre next
week will be changed Wednesday and Saturday. Th.ro .will be no show mi Monday
night, as the, theatre has been rented by tlic
Socalist party here for a meeting,

team aboard, and a large party of excursionists from this plnce to witness the ball
game to bu played at Quesnel tomorrow
between the homo team and Quesnel.
News was received here yesterday nf a
fatal accident which occurred on (he Cariboo road near Soad Creek last Tuesday
when a Chinese passenger was killed and a
driver seriously injured when a ear plunged
over the grade into the ditch. II appears
that rains had rendered the road very slippery and that in rounding a bend the car
skidded into the ditch. No particulars are
forthcoming, and the identity of the dead
Chinuiinan is not vet knowi'i here.
lie once intimated to The Herald, that, if
the purchasers, would give him about twenty thousand dollars for his share, that ho
would discontinue his obstruction tactics.
In an interview with Father Cocola the
day previous to the sale he informed The
Herald thai, the identity of the purchasers
was not definitely established. "The reserve
will be sold to the test advantage of the
Indians," said Father Cocola. "They aro
poor people, and children to all intents anil
purposes, It is my duty to protect their interests all the time; the wishes of the general public must be a secondary consider-
That the G. T. P. are the purchasers there
is very little room for doubt. Mr. Durnford
who is the only person with  a knowledge
of the identity of the purchasers, refuses to
divulge the information.  Father Cocola has
no knowledge of the matter, merely satis-
fying himself that   Mr.   Durnford  represented the necessary    capital to    complete the
purchase.  Mr. I) urn ford was at one time ill
the employ of the Dominion government at
Ottawa.    Indications    would point to the
fact that he has   been entrusted with the
commission to purchase the reserve for the
Dominion, who, jn turn will transfer it to
: the G. T.  P. in the same way as the sale
! of the Indian reserve was put through at
Rupert,  the G. T.  P. paying the purchase
price lo the Indians, Tho railway company
; are supposed to hold the reversionary rights
of the    province in   this matter, therefore,
after the   Indians    have relinquished their
] rights to the land the reserve remains the
' property of the Federal authorities, or the
concern    they   purchase for.   The C. T. 1'.
, have already made two previous attempts
Father Cocola, who recently completed a
■ tour of the country between here and Hnzcl-
■ ton, speaking of the wonderful mineral
resources of tin' country in the Babine range,
states that in tlie Bear Lake country, near
Did Fort Connelly there exist groat fields of
| anthracite coal.
In the issue   of the    Winnipeg Saturday
| Post, of August  llllh., appears a letter to
■ the editor, from George .1. Hammond,
telling: the, Post that the editor of this publication is a bad. naughty man, and asking
Knox Met lee not to print any more nasty
things about the Natural Resources Company until he sends a fellow up here to find
out if out if (leorge Hammond ever told a
lie in his advertisoing literature. Would'nt
that jar you? B. A. Laselle, of this town-
site, also butts-in with a nice little note appended to    Hammond's    rug-lime,   saying
i therein that he has asked us to cut out such
■ "uncalled for criticism" lots of times. Of
course he has, since establishing inter-pock-
, etbook relations with George Hammond
through (he medial ions of a gravel-peddler
whose name might be Muses. But unfortunately  Laselle is not running The Herald
■ or diotating its policy, and as he is on re-
j cord along different lines to those laid down
j in his letter to the Post he had better keep
' ol. the grass.
to purchase the reserve, both of whieh failed owing to the attitude of the Indians,
w.io were holding out for large figures,
owing to the work of townsite concerns
that had stimulated their greed by offering
the red-men high figures for the land. Dr.
McDougall, of Oltuwa, who represented the
government at one of the former attempts
to purchase, was empowered to offer the
sum of £05,000 only for the reserve.{The Indians refused to sell for that sum. It was
understood that the G. T. P. would not pay
more, and, reading between the lines, wa
seem to see the fine hand of diplomacy
taking this means of purchasing without
establishing a bad precedent of raising
their offer.
It is probable that the G. T. P. will make
an official public announcement with regard
to the reserve' sale shortly.
The Indians are given until June the first
of next year to vacate the land, during
which period, however, they will not interfere with any survey work that is to be
carried on throughout the land. The money
is to be paid to the Indians in cash, but no
date has yet been set for the payment of
the money. The Indians formed a committee
to attend to the division of the proceeds of
; the sale, and although he requested to be
left off the body entirely, the Indians pre-
i vailed upon Father Cocola to preside over
the work that the committee were to perform.
Discussing the plans for the Indian's
future Father Cocola stated that he was
pleased at the outcome of tlseir deliberations, lie 11.-u 1 always advised them that a
sale would be desirable for their welfare,
and in the event, of their deciding ugainst
the sale he would have used his influence to
move the tribe to another reservation,
further removed from the demoralizing in-
flueneies of tne adjacent white men's towns.
"It is like a new start in life for them,"
said Father Cocola to The Herald. Their
plans include the building of a well laid out
village on the (loose country reservation,
which is situated about sixteen miles up
the Fraser river from here, on the Western
bank. The reservation comprises 2500 acres
of splendid hind. The village will have e
church and presbytery, and a school. It will
be built on a uniform plan, several different
styles of houses will be built iukI grouped
round tlie church. It will in no wise resemble what has been known to the Indians of
this country, since the beginning of time,
us their villages—straggling groups of
hovels nnd smoke houses infested by vermin
and the germs of disease. The houses forming the new village, when completed, will
be chosen by the drawing of lots. The favored ones in the lottery winning the houses
nearest the church, which is tlw locality
most desired. I .very falraily of Indians are to
receive 82500. Each individual, man wolman
and child, receives an additional $5011.
Widows will draw $1500. These Indians have
been a poor people all their lives. They do
not understand the value of a thousand
dolhirs.and have no conception of the amount, of money in the control of tive tribe
ns payment for their land here. Father Cocola will help them and advise them in everything, and in the big kindly priest, who
for years past has acted as doctor and sur-
Igeon, spiritual' adviser and confidant for
thorn all, they have an advooato and mediator who has made their betterment his
life's work.
it is with a sigh of satisfaction that we
record the sale of Indian reserve No. 1 for
railway townsite purposes. We have repeut-
edly stated that the sale would go through
this month, and we received the advice upon
which we bused that statement from a
source that leaves us no doubt as to the
identity of tl.' purchasers. Fort George, we
allude to the lndiiwi reserve, and other
Fraser River properties, now stand upon a
solid foundation.
We await with interest the statement of
the railway company.
South Fort George and Other Fraser River Properties Natural Location For Future City Here.
On February 19th., MHO, John Houston
made the following prediction regarding
the situation at Fori (leorge." In the opinion of the editor of The Tribune, Fort
(leorge will, for Iwo or three years, be where
it is today, on 200 acres of land, fronting
on Fraser River and not a mile from the
located line of the Grand Trunk Pacific
railway through the Indian reserve. It is
common opinion al, Porl (leorge Hint the
railway company will purchase Ihe Indian
Reserve land, some I,'11)11 acres ill all, make
a portion of it into a townsite and the remainder railway yards. The Hudson's Bay
Company's 07 acres lying between tho ln-
'lian reserve and tha 200 ceres on which
the town is now building. Adjoining the
Hudson Bay    Company's  91 acres on the
west is Bii'd's pi'o-eblption of 111) acres.
These four tracts have a frontage of a mile
and lit half on Fraser river, and about the
sfiMne on Nechaco river, and if sub-divided
would make 10,1)0(1 town lots and leave the
railway 500 acres for yard purposes. Ten
thousand town lots is enough for a city of
20,001). Port George may have 20,000 people
! some day; but the editor of The Tribune
will not live to see the tiny."
.John  Houston's    prediction   was a true
one. South Fort (leorge, to which he albid-
I ed as "Fort (leorge" is still, and always
will be until the railroad townsite is well
established, the centre of interest here. The
lust paragraph of "Old John's" article was
pathetically true—he died on the eighth day
of the following month.
According to the Prince Rupert News
There has been some delay over the signing
of Ihe contract for the last gap in the G. T.
P., by Messrs. Foley, Welch, and Stewart.
There is no doubt expressed thut the contract will go to that contracting firm, but
it is known that, the Toronto Construction
Co., whose representatives were here some
time ago, and Messrs. Wilson & Co., of
Minneapolis were also in the field.
The final survey of the Grand Trunk Pac-
iyo north from Edson into the Peace River
country is being completed rapidly by L. E.
Silcox, who with a party of assistants has
been working through the country since the
opening of spring. Mr. Silcox is nowr about
.'15 miles north of Edson and'is working towards the town. The information has been
obtained from good authority that when
he reaches Edson the final survey will be
ciimpleteed. This should be by the end of
the present month.
Some difficulty has been experienced in
getting a satisfactory grade over the ridge
between lhe Athabasca and the McLeod
rivers. Several preliminary surveys were run
and the final has been located around the
eastern end of the ridge where it has been
possible to secure a four-tenths grade on tho
road's main line. Following this survey
the road will run northeast from Edson until it passes the ridge between the McLeod
and the Athabasca, after which it will swing
around into the valley of the latter stream
and run northward to a suitable place for
crossing. It is understood that .Mr. Silcox
has connected up the survey from Edson
with the old survey made in 1007 through
the Pino Pass.
According to the News, Montreal advices
give it out definitely that the contruct'for
the last stretch belongs to. Messrs. Foley,
Welch, tV Stewart, the firm have promised,
il is said, to have the steel across the summit to Tele Jaune Cache by December. Kail-
head is now only twenty miles east of the
Ycllowhend Pass at the summit, and grading is in progress west of the divide to
Tete Jaune Cache. Messrs. Foley, Welch &
Slewai't will undertake to complete the entire British Columbia section before the end
of 1913, when lhe line will be opened for
j through traffic.
Th.' work along lhe route between Aider-
more and Tete Jaune Cache is much lighter
thnn on thc 100-mile Coast division now
being, operated. Generally speaking the
country to be traversed is open and level.
A wide valley extends all the way from the
head of navigation on the south fork of the
Fraser to Fort (leorge.
The townsite of Houston, in the Bulkley
valley is being boomed by a Vancouver (inn
for tho G. T. P. Railway company. The
town is named after .lohn Houston, the
veteran newspaperman who died ut Quesnel last year from exposure to conditions
his lime worn constitution was unable to
stand, whilst printing his paper in South
Fort George. The townsite is made up of
1,765 li-ts.one-quarler of which are owned
by the Provincial Government, leaving
1,342 for sale. The streets are 66 feet wide
and the lanes 15 feet. The lots nre .10x100
feet with tli..' lane al the rear. The townsite
is principally level. The Buck Kiver runs
through the town, and two blocks have
been reserved on its banks for park purposes. The town is situated about halfway
between Eraser Lake and llazellon, on lhe
route of the (I. T. P.
Capitalists Coming Here.
Mr. Chandler S. Edwards, President of
the North Coast Land Company, leaves
Ashcroft about the 12th., of the month
with a party of distinguished English capitalists who will make South Fort George
their headquarters whilst looking over the
district with a view to investment in land
for colonization purposes. The parly includes (lis Grace the Duke of Sutherland, K.
(!., Lord Desboroiigh, K. ('. V. ().. Admiral
Lord Charles Beresford, Vieounl and W
countess Castlercuiigh, Lord Stafford, The
Hon. Arthur Stanley. Captain Hutton and
Mr. A. Simpson.
The party have been al Brooks, Alberta,
where.the Duke of Sutherland is heavily interested in land, for the past two weeks.
South Fort George has already been visited'by many distinguished people, but her
history will long have been written before
she again welcomes a party of men whose
names are household words in every corner
of the world. The Duke of Sutherland is one
of the wealthiest men in the Empire. Lord
Charles Beresford is England's most distinguished Admiral, lu 1882 he commanded
the Condor in lhe hnmhiird.iiont of Alexandria. He served on. Lord Wolsey's stall' in
the Nile Expedition, and commanded the
expidition which rescued Sir Charles Wilson's party in Safin. Other members of the
party are Well known in both Mayfair aud
Whitehall, in London.
Illicit Booze Venders are
Supplying Indians.
The blind-pigs that are peddling liquor to
Indians had better have a care. The easy-
money gentry, who daily violate the Act
by illicitly vending rank brands of rot-gut
to white men should be brought to account
for tha practice, but the skunks that sow
the seed of violence and crime in the poor
bestial brains of the Indians, to line their
pockets with money that should be expended in feeding and clothing tlw swarm of
hungry brown women and children on the
rancherie, are lower in the plane of estimation than grave robbers.
A disgraceful scene was enacted on Hamilton Avenue last Tuesday night, when a
crowd of drunken Siwashes brawled and
fought like a pack of sleigh dogs, within
hearing distance of private residencies, and
families that had to suffer the indignity of
waiting the termingtion of the red-men's
orgy, or send forth volunteers to take a
hand in the subduing of the frenzied mob
The Herald hus repeatedly "bawled out"
the provincial government for not erecting
a jail here. We have cited instances without
number when the lack of a place to house
prisoners in has caused the public unnecessary exposure to sights of violence and
drunkenness. The representatives of tilie government that huve visited this place must
have realized that a jail was a very necessary itelm in a place so remotely situated as
this, yet it is not built.
The   practice    of selling  liquor   to half-
breeds should be confined to sale over the
bar only. Any of the men who can purchase liquor under the act here as half-breeds
are   worse   than   Indians    themselves,   for
when they come into possession of a Jjottle
they hie themselves away to their Siwash
tilliliiuns and get the whole crowd drunk.
Then   the    particular    hell  demon    that
sleeps in the cranium of the Indian awakes
nnd twists the brain of the red-man until
he sees red—anil crime stalks abroad. The
Herald knows that half-breeds here were in
possession of enough rum this week to craze
j the whole   tribe. They   buy it at Quesnel,
. through the medium of some white skined
friend. When The Herald gets the facts regarding some suspected    blind-pigs in this
town we will publish  the names, occupat-
I ions, and addresses of the swine themselves.
! Cider venders had better sell the beverage
| with more discretion also. Any liquor that
I will intoxicate comes nnder Attorney-General Bowser's Liquor Act as a violation if
I sold to Indians, and judging from the cider
I jags some of the natives have carried, the
dope thai is    sold under that appellation
will certainly "bring the glad."
This is    at present   a "dry" town—but
, what's the use? Ninety miles down stream
there are two retail and ono wholesale li-
; cenee, with steamboats running between tho
; points twice a week or moro often.

That statement alone will prove to the readers the impossibility of price competition for imported beer against the product of a local .industry
Has been incorporated by men who have had long business experience in Cariboo. The objects of the company are: To manufacture
beer for the trade of the Northern Interior; both to satisfy present requirements and the increasing demands of the construction next
year and thereafter. To maintain a brewery capable of supplying the demand for a first-class beer. Read this prospectus. The facts:
A prospectus lins been issued which reads
in purt as follows:

This company is proposing to immediately
erect at Quesnel, a high class, modern brewery, and is offering to the public for subscription at par 300 of its 000 shares.
 1 1	
Since the incorporation of the company
several pionths ago, continuous efforts have
been made to obtain from the Dominion
Inland Revenue Department its consent to
the issue of a brewery licence. ]t has now
agreed to a grant being made when the
brewery is erected, and it has already appointed an Inland Revenue Inspector at
Quesnel to transact tho business of the company. An application will be made with all
practicable speed for a provincial licence,
and the Directors now propose to immediately construct and equip the brewery.
The whole expenses of promoting the
company, including Solicitors charges for
promotion; Government fees; stock books;
the printing of stock certificates and the
Articles of Association; Solicitor's charges
for securing an understanding from the
Dominion Government ns to a grant of a
licence when brewety is erected; the cost of
printing and publishing this prospectus have
been assumed by the Directors, or some of
them, and for so doing the said J. B. Daniell will be allotted 60 shares, and the said
J. A. Fraser; W. L. Collins; /A. W. Cameron;
E. L. Kepner; and George J. Walker 18
shares each. A contract dated 25 November
1910 to this effect has been entered into between the Company and the individual Directors and thc same may be seen at the registered oflice of the Company during business hours.
The Company is thus, without the payment of a single dollar, in the very fortunate position of being discharged from all initial and organizing expenses.
No shares will bodssuud at a discount nnd
every dollar subscribed will be used for the
actual business ,needs of the company.
The Directors nre fortunate in having secured tho services of Mr. George Bruder as
Brewer and Manager. Mr. Bruder is splendidly equipped for the position. He hns 25
years experience   as a Brewer in Germany,
Switzerland, the United States and Canada.
He is a graduate of the American Brewing
Academy and was for years Brewmaster of
the Upper Michigan Brewing Company, and
later of the Imperial Brewing Company, of
Kamloops, both of which were exceedingly
successful under his management.
Mr. Bruder is the owner of a considerable
amount of Brewing plant and apparatus,
and so much confidence has he in the possibilities of this District, and the successful
outlook of the Company that he has agreed
to turn over his plant at a valuation in exchange for the shares of the Company at
full par value.
The Directors only propose to raise the
capital necessary to place the Company in a
thoroughly sound financial condition, and
now offer for sale 815,000,00 of shares based
on the following estimate:
Site     8500.00
Building 7000.00
Machinery etc 4000.00
Plant and Apparatus  1500.00
Tools and accessories 500.00
Working Capital 2500.00
Less estimated value o£
Mr. Bruder's plant   1250.00
Net amount  of capital
required    $14750.00
The profits of Breweries are proverbial.
The distances of this country from thc railroad; the impossibility of price competition
from the nearest brewery; the immense extent of territory this brewery will serve; and
the splendid prices obtainable, place this
brewery in a class by itself, and inuke the
Directors firm in their belief thut this company will in a very short tiine be in an exceedingly prosperous condition and paying a
very high rate of dividend.
This brewery will supply Quesnel, Fort
George, Stanley, 150 Mile House, Soda
Creek, Quesnel Forks, Hydraulic, and all the
surrounding country, and it is estimated
that these places, during this year, consume
at least 2000 ban-els of beer. The plant it is
proposed to install is capable of manufact-
facturing 2500 barrels of beer per annum,
leaving a considerable margin for development without increased cost.
The construction of the G. T. P. and other
railways through this part of Northern B.
C. will immediately increase the territory
this brewery will serve, and ensure a big expansion of business within,a comparatively
short time. As any larger quantity of beer
can be manufactured at a less cost of output than a smaller quantity, a steady increase in the yearly profit in proportion to
the increase in business will be made.
' An average wholesale price of a barrell of
beer holding 6 doz. bottles is 810.00 at the
Brewery. Prices vary from 88.10 to $12.85
The average weight of such a barrell is
2-.51bs, and the freight from the Brewery to
Quesnel at 5 cents per pound would be $12.-
25. Beer from the Railway cannot therefore
bo laid down in Quesnel under 822.25 per
The estimated sost ol manufacturing a 6
dozen barrell of finest quality beer in Quesnel is only $7.80.
At $22.25 per barrell a bottle of beer costs
approximately 31 cents, of which the freight
is approximately 17 cents.
Estd., gross profit ... $21,375.00
First working year,
Cost of manufacturing
1500 bbls., @ 88.00 ... $12,000.00
Selling price thereof @
822.25 per bbl.,(wholesale in   Quesnel is today 830.00 p=r barrel ...33,375.00
After providing for the writing off of the
cost of the entire building and plant in five
years, and for the creation in that time of
a reserve fund equal in amount to the entire capital now to be subscribed, these
profits would pay a dividend of over 60 per
To comply with the Companies Act it is
stated that the Minimum Subscription on
which the Directors will proceed to allotment is one share. A considerable number of
shares have already been spoken for.
Applications for shares should be made
upon the form accompanying this prospectus, and sent to the Company's Bankers, the
Northern Crown Bank, Quesnel, or to the

Whoro no allotment is made the deposit
will be returned in full, and also where the
number of shares allotted is less than tho
number applied foi* tho balance of the deposit will be applied towards the remaining
Failure to pay any future instalment on
shares allotted when due will render previous payment liable to forfeiture.
