Preparations for   the boxing contest on the evening of St. Patrick's
Day are well under way, and a good
evening's entertainment is assured'.
In addition to the ten-round heavyweight   go    between    Sheridan and
Savoy, the management  has arranged tor an eight-round bout between
j George Allen, the middleweight mit
artist, and Ed. LeBlanche. This event will take the place of the two
four-round   preliminaries   advertised.
Local boxing fans have seen Allen in
action and    know his   ability as a
finished boxer. LeBlanch declares he
will   lower the    little   Frenchman's

Lemieux's body, which had been
backed to pieces with a hunting
knife were found nearby. Leclaire
was frozen to death.
Remarkable scenes were witnessed
in Edson last week in connection
with a big raid-on placeB which were
supposed to bo trafficking illicitly in
tlie sale of liquor.
The   raid was    planned on a big
scale by Richard Stanfford, of the Alberta Detective   Agency,   Edmonton,
l'who   jent down    at the   request of
Mayi.:'Lawrence and waB appointed
chief of  the Edson police,  in order
that he might    clean up the places
kept   by    the alleged    boot-leggers.
Stafford took with him two of his
men—Max Benson and William Clari-
son— and, in addition to Town Constable Tatham, were assisted by ten
specially sworn-in constables.
A wagonload of liquor was confiscated from Cotton's restaurant,  and
four girls, who were found in Cotton's and were suspected of being inmates of a house of ill-fame, attempt
ted to escape    while    Stafford was |
breaking down the   door where the
liquor was kept,    but ran into the
arms of the constable stationed at
the back door. They were placed in a
rig and sent oft to the police station.
On the way to the station the rig
was held up by a crowd ot men, The
three constables in charge of the rig
were beaten oft   and tbe girls were
rescued. In a melee which followed,
Stafford shot his gun into the air to
call tor the   assistance of his constables, and later a warrant was issued for his   arrest on an alleged
fake charge ot having wounded one
of the mob. He was confined in the

Final estimates of the yield and value
of the principal field crops of Canada
for the season of 1912 have been issued
by the census and statistics office of the
department of trade and   commerce.
Upon a total area under field crops of
32,474,000 acres a  harvest has been
reaped, the value of which,  calculated
at average local market prices,  makes
a total of $509,437,000.   The area under
wheat last year was 9,758,400 acres, of
which 781,000, acres represent the harvested area of fall wheat grown principally in Ontario and Alberta,  but also
to a limited extent in Manitoba,  Saskatchewan and British Columbia.

There is a rumor current that the
railway, according to present plans,
will cross the    Fraser at    a point
trom two to    tour miles below tbe
town of Lillooet and   pass through
some high lands opposite the town,
thence striking northerly away from
the banks of    tbe river and in the
direction of    tbe town   of Clinton,
which the line    may, or    may not
touch. From a point at, or in the
vicinity    of Clinton,    the line will
swing off towards Quesnel, possibly
striking the    FraBer again   at that
point, and thence proceeding to Fort
George by the river route.

Contending that the Justices at the
150-Mile House on tne Cariboo road,
who recently sentenced a man named
Watt for selling liquor- to an Indian
had imposed too heavy a sentence,
Mr. A. G. Harvey has applied to the
Supreme Court    for habeas   corpus
proceedings to have the case quashed.
Mr. Harvey stated that after sentencing Watt to six months for sell- .
Ing, the justices imposed a fine,  in
default ot payment of which he was
to be    sentenced     to a further sii
months, whereaB by law he could bo
detained only for an additional three
months.
"The provincial act provides for
these matters to be amended," said
Mr. Justice Clement, who ordered
that the application be adjourned to

which the easy-money crowd seek to part the 'unsophisticated   •
from their hard-earned cash by blazoning forth the offer of large
returns from money invested. In British Columbia the traffic
in get-rich-quick swindles grows apace and it is said there is no
remedy. Yet the government acknowledges that there circulates
from this province a vast quantity of lurid advertising literature
which should properly bear the impression of a]'great, snarling,
foam-flecked panther stamped in bloody red.
'lhe Herald agrees with the government; the question is hard
to deal with. We do not consider it emanates in any degree from,
or that it reflects discredit upon, the land policy of the government as prescribed under section 37 of the Land Act. f,The deplorable state of affairs is by no means peculiar to this province,
but is more marked in the extreme west than elsewhere in the
Dominion owing to the spirit of the day which is driving development into these parts. It is just as much a menacing'adjunct of
a prosperous province as the devices of the gamblers that infest
the new and prosperous mining camps, menace the prosperity of
the prospector or miner susceptible to the passion for gambling,
when dice are loaded or cards are marked.
But there must be a remedy.
It is a matter of common knowledge that wild-cat townsites are
being floated every day in this province. There is nothing to stop
them. The art of the trained writer of advertising literature is
called into play to dress the crude subdivision in the trappings
and finery of a wondrous prophesied future. The thing is worked
out in dollars and cents by the promoters. They buy the "raw"
land, subdivide, advertise and sell. Their profit is the difference
between the cost of the lots they peg together with corner posts,
and the money they receive for passing over a nicely printed red-
sealed deed to the premises. It is a gamble, pure and simple.
But the distressing circumstance of such gambling is that it is
gambling disguised. Many of the poor people who buy these
lots imagine they have been presented with an opportunity of
"getting in on the ground floor" in a proposition which is exactly
what it is not- -and perhaps never will be.
It does not appear to be a partisan matter. When Mr. Parker
Williams introduced the subject in the Legislature we do not
imagine that hs would have been too strongly opposed by the
great majority of the government if he had actually introduced
some measure, thought out by himself, to deal with the condition
he deplores. The question needs careful study, and measures for
its solution must be aimed at the methods which make the sale of
wild-cat propositions so prosperous—for the land shark.
The Herald is loath to proffer its suggestions in this matter.
It is not many months since our campaign, aimed at methods of
promotion to which we took exception, ended in the assize court
at Kamloops in a conviction of the editor on a charge of criminal
libel. The esse, which cost this paper many thousands of dollars,
proves to the satisfaction of hundreds of people who are in possession of the literal facts of the case, stripped of all the encumbrance of the burden of proof and the intricacies of the law, the
difficulty which is encountered in defining the term which commenced with the panther on the bills of the broken bank.
It would assist matters, we believe, if the vendors of townsites
were required to register with the government a copy of all the
advertising material issued in the flotation of their townsites. In
taking action for misrepresentation or fraud, then, it would simplify matters to have recourse to these files, for it must be borne
in mind that the government are owners to the extent of one-
quarter of all the townsites located on lands alienated from them
during the past seven years.
We believe that it would be good law to require that on every
160 acres of land subdivided into townsite property the owners
should be required, under provisions in the act, to apply a percentage of the gross receipts figured from their upset prices,
towards such improvements as street grading, sidewalks and the
clearing of the whole site. This would eliminate the townsite
proposition that is destitute of any development, of which there
are many examples in the woods today. Under the present act,
requiring no development to townsites whatsoever, it is possible
to buy cheap land and sell the lots for next to nothing, still reaping a handsome profit for the salesman. This brand of townsite
litters the country with areas of land sold under the representation of townsites, which have no claim to the title other than
their condition of survey.
It would also assist the cause of downtrodden humanity if the
federal laws governing the transmission of misleading material
through the mails were amended and applied more forcibly to
meet the circumstances.
The promoters of the many legitimate townsites, backed by the
development of the oublic as'a guarantee of their worthiness, or
by the development power of railways, would find their wares
more readily received if they combined in an effort to assist in the
expulsion of the wild-cat promoter from western Canada.

ml ■ "1 THE PEACE WVtK
COUNTRY
Town of Athabasca the Central
Point for Settlement in Every
Direction-Many New
Buildings.
Stall Sergeant K. F. Anderson, R.
m  W. M. P*.    stationed   at Peace
Biver Crossing, is in the city lor a
lew days, says the Edmonton Bulletin He reports that the trail between
peace River Landing  and the town
of Athabasca is crowded with travelers. When coming out last week he
m\ to   pass stopping   plapes   and
continue till 10   p. m. in order to
find stable room for his horses. Among the travellers there are a large
number of new homesteaders, taking
their outfits in to locate on land previously selected.
Many new log houses were built on
the homesteads in the Peace River
country last year, Bergt,, Anderson
stated, but thc scarcity of lumber has
i prevented the erection of frame residences.
At Peace River crossing a school
has been established. A young lady
teacher of Scotch descent was engaged as teacher, but after two
months she accepted another engagement and resigned. The school board
is now advertising for another.
Among the new buildings • which
have been erected at Peace River
Crossing are a new two-storey residence for the manager of the Peace
Kiver Trading and Land company,
a new store for Revillion Bros., a
jew post office and government telegraph office, new H. B. company
warehouse and a new H. B. company store with two stories and
basement. A new three-storey hotel
is incomplete owing to lack of lumber.
The development ol the northern
transportation business has caused.
tbe Hudson's Bay Company to move
their headquarters for steamships to
Peace River Crossing. This winter
these boats are wintered there. The
steamer Grenfell, ot the Peace River
Trading and Land Company, is also
wintered at the crossing. '
Sergeant Anderson reports that
snow was eighteen inches deep on the
north side ot the Peace when he last
visited the settlement around "the
Waterhole, North Dunvegan. This
will assure an abundance ot moisture
in the soil tor next season's crop for
which prospects are good.
Arrangements are being made for
taking a saw-mill north from Edmonton this winter to operate at
Peace River Crossing. One ot the pioneer farmers is planning to take in
a steam plow outat this winter.'
Some of the settlers north of the
Peace threshed four thousand bushels
of oats from their 1912 crop. Oats
were selling at the Crossing at 75cts.
a bushel and hay trom 120 to 40 per
ton. Hay is scarce at the crossing
owing to the big prairie fire which
raged on both sides ot the Peace a
few months ago.
Sergeant Anderson has charge of
a very large district on both sides
ol the Peace River, from half way
to Gourard to the British Columbia
boundary.
Staff sergeant Anderson, it will be
remembered, was the officer who a
lew years ago did such successful detective work on the King murder
ease near Grouard.
X  ISJ TIU
Hot drinks for children who are
compelled to take their noonday
lunch at the Nelson public school
will be provided either free of charge
or at cost, if a suggestion made at
the last meeting of the school board
by M. J. Labadie, chairman proves
practicable. The matter was left to
the school management committee.
R. N. Clarke, chief constable at
Vernon, has succeeded in his activities in discouraging gambling within
his own purview. Twenty-six Chinamen were gathered into the police
station following a raid of a gambling joint situated in the upper rooms
of Hop Yick Lung in Chinatown. The
raid was planned by chief Clarke,
who with five plain clothes constables gave effect to it about 9 p. m.
when the room was well filled with
Celestials, engaged In the absorbing
game of  "fan-tan."
Por an innocent and purely technical violation of the law, committed
three years ago, D. M. Peebles, who
has for two months been in business
In Victoria, returned voluntarily to
Seattle a few days ago at the request of his bondsmen to serve a
five year term in prison. Peebles was
convicted over two years ago of misusing his seal as a notary public.
Since then his case has been ln appeal, while he was at liberty, several
wealthy citizens of Seattle giving
bond for his appearance when required. Only a week or two ago the
supreme court of Washington finally
dismissed his last appeal, and Peebles was sent for. He is now in prison.
Four hundred cases of dynamite
and three hundred kegs of powder
belonging to C. M. Werdenoff's construction camp at Reefers, near Ashcroft, exploded last week and every
window in the town Was smashed as
a result. The explosion was caused
by fire spreading from the gasoline

THE  TOWN   THAT   OFFERS   OPPORTUNITIES!
OPPORTUNITIES for investment and money-making. OPPORTUNITIES for opening in
business where you are sure to succeed. OPPORTUNITIES for establishing yourself in the
finest agricultural district in British Columbia. OPPORTUNITIES to regain lost health.
OPPORTUNITIES of obtaining wealth from any of the above within the next few years,
WHY!
BECAUSE!
Read below extracts of letter written by Mr. E. A. Mitchell of the Fort Fraser Drug Co, to
a particular Vancouver friend of his:
Dear Dan,—I like this place better every day and
you couldn't pull me out. of it. The rheumatism
has completely left me and I never felt better in
my life and can eat like a horse.
I never saw better potatoes than 1 have seen
grown here, and the largest carrots 1 have ever had
the pleasure of seeing were grown here. The nice
flavor of the vegetables and roots here was one of
the first things which 1 noticed. A Mr. McDonald
here grew over 100,000 pounds of potatoes this
summer. I saw some No. 1 oats and wheat which
was grown here, and the wheat was even a better
variety than the oats.
There is plenty of the finest land surrounding
Fort Fraser, and the location of the tawnsite and
view from it is perfect. The appearance of the
country generally, from a scenic point of view cannot be'improvcd upon.
At present there is on the townsite a sawmill, a
branch of the Bank of Vancouver,  hotel almost
completed and will be open very soon, Government
building which is a credit to the town, the Fort
Fraser Investment Company, Dominion Stock &
Bond Corporation agent and office and his residence, a drug stove, postoffice shortly, and a great
number of larger or smaller houses,.
The best openings at pvesent are for 'a butcher,
cabinetmaker to make furniture and run a furniture store, livery, rostaurant, bakeshop. general
stores and clothing store. In the spring there
should be good openings for another grocery, hardware, poolroom, barber shop, jeweller^, another
sawmill, boarding house and rooms, tailor, dressmaker and probably several other lines.
Taking conditions all around I am more pleased
every day that 1 enme in here when 1 did. This is
going to be :i good (own, and the man who gets in
here lirst is going to do Well, Hang onto what
property you have here, Dan, and my advice to you
is to get more of it. It is bound to come, and all I
can say is that Fort Fraser is good enough for me.

Adams observed in explaining geographical and other conditions,  "and
a large part of it is in daily use by
automobilists  and   freighters.    With
the exception of a piece of road between Tete Jaune Cache, at the western end of the Yellowhead Pass, and
Fort George, B. C, there is little or
no difficult construction required and
practically all of it could be brought
up to auto standatd with little work-
"Thoue familiar with the railway
construction that   has been in progress thc last four or five years know
that beginning at the' Edmonton end
there was built a tote road, parallel
with the Grand Trunk Paoific main
line, over which contractors freighted their   BUpplieB. The   highway on
the  prairie section    was   mostly a
winter road and for that reason it
was not permanent. To bring it up
up to standard would mean the expenditure    of    a large   amount   of
money.
"The road in the mountain country
is ol good character, with easy
grade and substantial bridges and
foundation. It extends all the way
to the head of navigation on tbe
Praser river at Tete Jaune Cache.
The highway is in use daily.
"MoBt of the Tote road has been
abandoned since the completion ot
the Grand Trunk Pacific railway
through the prairie section. However, lt is in presentable condition
most of the way and by a little expenditure, before the road falls into
utter disrepair, it could be made the
basis of a magnificient highway
through the gorgeous Yellowhead
PasB and Mt. Robson country.
"There is no established road between Tete Jaune Cache and Fort
George, and construction would be
somewhat expensive, owing to the
unsettled state of the hillsides. How-
«ver, this would be no more costly
than other new work. From Fort
! George to Ashcroft, B. C, along the
Fraser River, there is the old Cariboo road, used every day in the year
'or auto traffic. It is declared to be
one of the best mountain roada on
the continent.
"The Cariboo road, which extends to Burrard Inlet, was used extensively during the   early days of

Parker Williams Draws Attention

Statements of Western
Wallingfords.
••Make way for his honor the Lieu*
tenant-ttovenor."   The   call   Bounded
about midway    through   a morning
session of the    House last week in
Victoria, and   His   Honor marched
solemly to the throne and took his
Beat thereon, the members standing
the while.
Then the clerk of the House read
a list of the bills which were up for
conei'leration by His Honor, to the
number of twenty-one, and added the
customary phrase:  "His honor doth
consent to these acts." Immediately
afterward the    Lieutenant   Governor
lelt the chamber, the  Speaker took
his place once more, and the business
o( the day was proceeded with.
The feature of the afternoon, from
the point of view of the visitors in
the galleries, whs the discussion that |
turned  on the    wild-cat subdivision
schemes that are so often a menace
to the country's good.   Pankeo Williams sounded the   first note,  after
the Attorney-General had moved the
second reading of the land act, for
the member    for   Newcastle pleaded
that some sort of provision ought to
be made to protect the people of the
province from the   land-sharks who
were likely to infest the place with
their unwarranted real estate booms.
Witb some eloquence he treated of
the manner in which townsites were
plotted without   any obvious cause
lor eiistrpce, and inveighed against
the manner in which these schemes
were exploited in far-away spots. He
had seen British Columbia townsites
with four or five railways crossing
one another set (orth brazenly, .for
Instance ln Chicago  papers. British
Columbia's    climate,    wonderful tn
certain parts, was put Iorth aa an
asset lor places in the north of the
province where bitter cold held away
(luring the greater part ot the year.
"Is it not time," he aaked, "for
the credit of the province, that eome-
be done   to prevent
seller and protect the
mou.JJU'iD    t.tt.3
      purchaser.  If
this was attempted by act of parliament too much paternalism would
be the result.
The Criminal Code, proceeded Sir
Richard, provided against false pretences being used in selling, and he
could promise the member for Newcastle that every care possible would
be taken where the government interest was involved, that no fake advertising should take place.
The government would try to protect the province to the best of its
ability. Its main function ought to
be to guard the reputation of the
province: that could not be gone
about too zealously. He could only
add that the government was heartily in accord with any reasonable
proposals to protect its people from
land sharks.

The Attorney General, who answered the opposition leader, while' admitting there wag a great deal ot
truth in what hlg friend from Newcastle had pointed out, waa of the
opinion that it would be a hard
matter for any government to prone,
Ateer all, it came down to a quest-
ton ot type. It wag difficult, in this
grasping age, to prevent people putting their money in all sorts of ventures of this kind. The conditions
were not normal. Many people, who
had been poorly furnished with tbe
world's goods, had become exceedingly wealthy, and the craze for sudden riches had spread.
He did not think lt reasonable that
'he legislature should surround the
P«ople with all kinds of prohibitions
"long these lines, it waa so difficult
and unsatisfactory to attempt preventing a man using his money in
•"■J way he thought fit.
Parker Willlama thought that the
continual launching of these wildcat schemes through Eastern Canadian and foreign mediums would bring
odium on the good name and reputation of British Columbia. He quoted an analogous case of the lotter-1
'es, which had been summarily |
stopped by the police. Tney had
atepped in to prevent men from
taking gambling chances with their
money, ' '
"There ign't even a gamblere
chance in many of the aubdlvisions,"

At this point the Premier broke
into the discussion. He heartily concurred with what both hii friend
from Newcastle, and hlg collaagie,
Mr. Bowser, had said. It WM, aa
far as waa humanly possible, the
'lll<-y of the government to guard
thl- public against these unacrup-
u'oii8 promotera of townglteg. It waa

Some time ago we reprinted an
announcement from British Columbian Federationist to tbe effect
tnat a brothes of Jack Mclnnis, late
member for Grand Forks in the provincial legislature, and a resident of

We have since learned that the report
was an error of identity on the part
cf our contemporary, and we take a
great deal of pleasure in denying it.
A monthly meeting of the Conservative  Association    was held   in  the
Fire Hall last night. The association
endorsed a letter of Dr. D. B. Lazier
to the provincial Health Department
concerning  the  unsanitary  condition
of the town, and recommending that
health officers be appointed to visit
the camts up river. The Association
also    received  and    forwarded  with
strong endorsation letters from the
various athletic associations here requesting the government to set aside
a block in tne   townsite,  owned by
them, tor athletic and park purposes.
Other buginess of minor importance
waa disposed of, and the meeting ad-

WILLOW RIVER
BRITISH COLUMBIA
At the confluence of the Fraser, Salmon and Willow Rivers.
The first town of importance to be established in Central
British Columbia on the Main line of the Grand Trunk Pacific
Railway.    By those who are in close  touch with  the true
conditions, Willow River is regarded as being a town of
future great importance  in  the heart of "Canada's Inland
Empire."   This fact, plus the fact that Willow River will be
an important lumbering,  mining and agricultural centre,
makes property in this new town desirable from either a
business or investment standpoint.    Willow River property
has  been  purchased by merchants and investors throughout
Canada and United States.    Although thc town was only
established October 16th, 1913, a number of lota have been
resold at decided profits,  while other purchasers refuse to
sell at even twice the prices paid.   The business portion only
of Willow River is now on the market—the survey of the
residence portion has recently been completed and this portion
of the town will be placed on the market in the near future.
There are a limited number of lots available in the business
portion at the original prices.    Easy Terms.    No Interest.
Clear and perfect title direct from the Grand Trunk Pacific
Railway.   The Original and Official Townsite of Willow River
is located on Lot 785; Station Site approved by the Board of
Railway Commissioners March 26th,  1912, Order No. 16179.
