Victoria,    Dec.     8 .-(Special. )-
Tlat the government of the prov-
lnce 0f British Columbia will co-op-
wItn president Woodrow Willi in a scheme for the railway development and colonization of    the
.,. ,lor,„ was the gist of a signlfi-
„t reference to the possibility of
railway development  in  connection
wltn president Wilson's recent mes-
-,.*-,. to congresB made by    Premier
McBrld re today.    In an interview, Sir Richard stated that he believed the construction of a line of
railwaj  north and    south    through
British Columbia,    providing  access
,o Alaska and the Yukon, was a national enterprise.    Speaking of the
reference in President WilBon's message to extension of    railway    construction   in   Alaska,   Sir   Richard
Ba|-1*   "I desire to express my gratification at the' attitude of President
Wilson as outlined in his message to
Congress    with  respect  to  Alaskan
railway    development.    While    the
proposal is to commencce at   once
with the construction    of    railway
from   the coast line to Madawaska
coal fields,  some  distance  Interior,
involving the expenditure   „.
000,000, it must not be accepted as i
the final word on railway expansion   wlln  the
in that section.    It is my firm belief ''ime neCl
that this is but the commencement
of an energetic policy    leading    at
once to the development of the far :
north    and    making for wonderful
growth there eventually.
The fact that the United States
proposes to Indulge in the present
enterprise may be taken aB an indication of certainty of railway construction that will provide for connection to the south through British Columbia linking up American
and Canadian transcontinental roads
for Alaskan service. We could get
no better news in the closing month
of the year than what is contained
in President Wilson's message.
The premier was asked if a north
and south line through British Columbia north of the Grand Trunk
might be considered a provincial enterprise, and he answered that he
believed that a railway to connect
Alaska and the Yukon with the
south should be considered both in
Canada and the United States as a
national enterprise.

would be at Quesnel by 10 at night.
They  counted  on  making  Ashcroft

put    them    in Vancouver Thursday
night.    Pretty  quick  travel  that—
three daj'B from Fort George to Vancouver in December! The chauffeur,
Charles West,  plans  to  bring    the
car back from  Ashcroft next week
with a load of passengers and    he
will continue making trips until the
Fraser freezes up.    Passengers    on
this trip were W. H. Wark of Prince

House   of   Representatives    Wants
Naval Holiday.
Washington, D. C, Dec. 8.—(Special.)—By an overwhelming vote the
house of representatives at Washington passed a resolution requesting President Wilson, so far as can
be done with due regard for interests of the United States, to co-operate with the suggestion of Winston
Churchill, England's first lord of
the admiralty, for an international
naval holiday of one year.
POSTAL EXPANSION
Canada Provides Most Wlnderful Instance Known.
London, Dec. 6.—Francis Salisbury, who has received a handsome
testimonial from the commercial
community of Liverpool on retiring
Irani the postmaatershlp of that
city, said that Canada provided the
most wonderful instance known to
postal expansion. Nearly 600,000
parcels sent through Liverpool to
Canada, and 250,000 came from
Canada yearly.
Interesting Weekly Programme Now
Being Arranged.
The date of the flrBt annual ball
of the South Fort George Social
club has been changed from Wednesday, December 10, to the 17th
Inst, owing to the fact that the
diiectors of the club are desirous
not to have tW-a event in ar.y way
conflict with ths mnsq lerade ball
being held in Central Fort George
tomorrow night This ball, to be
known as the Hayseed Dance, will
be held in Birch's hall, and tickets
can be had on application to Wm.
Thorne or at the clubrooma and are
being sold at $2 a couple.
The club directors are considering
giving the members an opportunity
of displaying their talent, and a
committee consisting of Wm. Cook,
John H. Boehner and Barney Folke
has been appointed to draft a programme for the coming winter. A
series of entertainments are being
arranged for the benefit of the club
members   and    their     out-of-town
guests.
F. G. Smith has been appointed
treasurer to succeed C. E. Rich,
whose time will be taken up entirely
with his duties as manager.
Chartered memberships closed on
Saturday last with over two hundred paid-up members, which number entirely exceeded the expectations of the most optimistic of the
directors.
The club has certainly got away
with an excellent start and no doubt
will be an Important factor in the
social life of the community.
MANY  PERISHED IN  FLOOD
Italian*, und Negroes Swept to Death
in Texas.
Brazos, Texas, Dec. 8.— (Special.)

death list at two thousand, mostly
Italians and negroes.
BIG  REAL   ESTATE    TRANSFER
N. C. Jorgensen Sells to A. I. Haight
Tract vVcr^ss Fraser Rlvei*..
The efficiency of the South Fort
George fire department    was    thoroughly  demonstrated at a fire that
broke out in a small house owned
and  occupied  by  A.  Sternburg    on
Monday    afternoon.    The    building
was situated on the post road, but
the brigade made the run in record
time, and although    the    fire    had
gained  considerable  headway  when
they arrived the fire-fighting apparatus proved too strong, and in less
than twenty minutes the blaze waB
under control.    Both the hose reel
and  chemicals    rendered    excellent
service and at one time no less than
a dozen streams  were playing    on
the    burning    building.    The    loss
amounts to about    $600,    partially
covered by  insurance.    Mr.    Sternburg was particularly unfortunate as
the  fire  destroyed  a  roll  of    bills
amounting to  $400 which was laying on the shelf and which he had
intended taking to the bank to deposit tbat very day.    A purse containing  $50  however, belonging   to
Mrs. Sternburg was saved after    a
valiant effort by    fireman    William
Thorne.
To gasoline can be traced the origin of the fire. It appears that Mrs.
Sternburg was cleaning her clothes
when a spark from the stove dropped
in the gasoline she was using and
instantly an explosion took place and
the whole building was soon a mass
of flames.
Mrs. Sternburg was badly burned about the hands and face and
she is at the Empress hotel under
the medical care of Dr. Lazier suffering from the shock as well, but
it is not expected that she will be
j ind'sposed for more than a few days.
Victoria, Dec. 8.—(Special.)—
Released by virtue of writs of habeas corpus at noon today by Justice

NOTED HOCK7Y PLAYER J
SIGNS UP IN COAST LEAGUE
Montreal. Nov. 30.—Didier Pitre
will take Lalonde's place in the
West. George Kennedy, managing-
director of Les Canadiens, has received a wire to that effect from the
Patricks.
They are willing to take him in
exchange, it Mr. Kennedy can make
satisfactory arrangements.
The change, some of Pitre's
friends say, ought to be a good thing
for him, for last year he got mixed
up too much with a dissolute crowd
here, and the result was tha the did
not do justice to either himself or
his club, the Canadiens.
He was getting a salary of $3000
for hs two months' play and
through neglect, he allowed himself
to be fined $750.
From what can be ascertained,
Pitre although at first he did not
like the idea of a change, now seems
to have decided that a trip to the
Coast won't do him any harm.

MAKING    SPLENDID    PROGRESS
The vear 1913. "hich is rapidly
drawing to a close, has indeed been
an important one in the development of Canada, notwithstanding
the financial stringency which prevailed throughout the civilized
world during a considerable portion
of the year, both our British and
foreign trade has increased by leaps
and bounds while immigration to
this country continues at a rate
greater than ever before in our
history. The Balkan war and the
money stringency that followed aa
a consequence had a beneficial rather
than a depressing effect upon this
country Inasmuch as it demonstrated
the ability of Canadian hanks, railways, etc., to withstand such a stringency with scarcely a single lailure
or loss and but further demonstrates
the sound financial basis on utifch
such Institutions are founded.
What is undoubtedly the greatest
pints.* of our national growth has
been the wonderful railway development that has taken place in the last
year, and In no part of Canada have
tho railways made greater strides
than In British Columbia. The map
of thia province has been rolled up
for two hundred miles by the construction of the Grand Trunk Pacific
railway through the northern part
of British Columbia, and we are enabled as a consequence to obtain a
Bniall idea of ihe vaBl esources that
this country contains. Us lakes and
rivers, teeming with ash and wild
fowl, present rare bits of picturesque and rugged scenery; its forests densely clad with valuable timber is a veritable haven to the
sportsman, and when cleared is well
suitable to dairying and mixed
farming; its mountains contain a
hidden mineral wealth whose value
It would be impossible to estimate.
Experts have declared lhat there is
enough eoal In this district alone to
keep up the engines of 'he world till
the angel Gabriel's trumpet shall
sound "Cease working." These are
but a few of the vast resources that
this country contains and are but
waiting for the hand of the settler.
But thc Grand Trunk is but one
of a great network of railways that
U being constructed to connect and
open up for development different
sections of this wonderful counjry.
But progress has not been confined
to railway development alone—many
new manufacturl
sprung into being in this prov
•the past year, in fact in every
branch of our agricultural, commercial and Industrial life we have made
great progress.
Unquestionably Soutii Fort George
haa witnessed within the past year
a period of unprecedented progress.
Thc population has doubled if not
trebled, and she has witnessed , ln
the springing into being of her sisjter
town Prince George a new city In
the making. All signs indicate that
in the coming year this town will

OF STEEL.
It will not be long now before the
gteel will be here and its arrival is
an event of no small importance. It
will mark an era in the development
not only of South Port George but
of tbe whole province, and the event
should be fittingly celebrated. The
presence of Ihe Prime Minister of
this province, and other prominent
men, would serve to further call the
attention of the public to the merits
of this district, and we trust that
some public-spirited citizen or body
of citizens will adopt our suggestion
in order that this event shall be
made one of more than passing notice.

Ri h     '  Nov'  29— Profe88°r Chas*
/•not, «>« di.tinBuiahod BclontlBt, to
Whom was awarded tho Noebel prise
for medicine this year announces
that tuberculosis can be cured with
raw meat Juice.
The treatment is difficult to follow," he aald, "but I have proved Its
effectiveness. Every day the patient
must go to a slaughterhouse, obtain
ten pounds of fresh meat and then
extract the revivifying Juice from lt.
This is a long and tedious task. Ten
pounds of meat yields about half a
pint of Juice, which should be conserved on Ice.
"My patients, who were suffering
from tuberculosis ot the lungs, were
cured by this treatment although lt
had to be followed faithfully for
three years.
"I admit it Is a costly as well as a
difficult remedy, but it is a certain
one in all but the most advanced
cases. I do not believe any serum
exists which w-ill cure the dread disease."
Tuberculosis kills more than 120,-
000 people in France yearly, according to Dr. Albert Calmette, who is
trying to get the French government
to give the scientists an uninhabited
island off Guinea where experiments
may be made with monkeys, with a
view to eradicating the white plague
with which one ln seven human
adults die.
Dr. Calmette haa discovered a vaccine which has given calves Immunity from tuberculosis. He has mixed
the most virulent Koch bacilli in
their food and inocculated them under the flesh; pumping hundreds of
millions of germs into their veins.
But every calf vaccinated beforehand
has not contracted the disease, and
post morten examinations failed to
reveal the slightest traces ot affection.
Dr. Calmette admits, however, that
his experiments are not conclusive as
to his effective treatment of human
beings.

8KXDKGAT- INDIANS
INSTALLING IMPROVEMENTS
Prince Rupert, Nov. 29.—Indians
of Skidegate are determined to be
civilized. They are now installing
improvements that will make their
village the most modern Indian settlement on the Pacific coast.
It will be somewhat of a shock to
those familiar with tin* customs of
the Siwash Indians to learn that the
Skidegate villagers are spending
their own money for light and water
systems. Such things are unheard
of in Indian towns. The Saturday
night bath threatens to become an
Institution among a race that has
always regarded water us useful
only for Ashing purposes and to
float canoea.
The Indian's recently received
(2000 from the provincial government In payment for right-of-way
for the government road through
their reserve. Upon the advice of
ThomaB Deasy, Indian agent, they
decided to spend thia money for a
light and water system for their village and a Prince Rupert plumber is
now at work putting in the pipe fittings and hydrants.
Twenty-eight men are busy on the
dam that will supply water to the
town and 4000 feet of water main
has been laid. A quantity of lire
host Is included in the equipment of
the system.
The lighting improvements will
be a remarkable advance over native
methods. Street lamps of 2000
candlepower win he installed. No
native settlement in the North Pacific can compare with Skidegate
when these improvements are completed.
Smithers, D. C, Dec. 3.—An wx-
periment station will be established
on the Fairviow farniH near Smithers by the provincial department of
agriculture. Tho property is on the
inn of George Driver on Tyee lake.
A beginning will be made with
five ncres, wliich will be cultivated
under the drection of H. E. Walker,
district agriculturist. The land has
been plowed and will he in good
condition for planting in the spring.
Tho experimental tract.is located
on a typical Bulkley valley ranch
and is certain to prove of great benefit to tbe farmers of the interior.
Various experiments will be carried
on, such as testing of seeds, planting of new crops, etc. On his ranch
this season Mr. Driver grew 100
biushels of oats to the acre,
j In connection with the experiment
firm, a meteorological station will
be maintained where weather and
climatic condition., will be observed.
Definite data will then be available
aa to the advantages of the district
for various lines of agriculture and
stock raising.

Seattle, Wash., Nov. 29.—Orlando
Dammitt of this city lias made ap- j
plication before the authorities to
have his name changed. It has been
the source of continual annoyance,
he explained. For instance, it was
nothing uncommon on his going
down the street to hear someone yell
out O Dammitt and it was impossible inr Orlando to tell whether
they were calling him or merely g v-
ing expression to then* feelings. He
was also member of a local Rugby
team and whenever ho would make
a good play the fans gave rather an
embarrassing yell whieh ran something like this: Rah, rah, rah, Dammitt, Dammitt, o h, Dammitt,

From Prince Rupert to Fort
George.
■■Make hay while the sun shines,"
.  ,,'' motto of everybody along the
■de from Prince Rupert to Fort
The contractors are hur-
OeorgL'
ri ,., their work to the last degree
efflclency, the track-layer ia fol-
Line up, and the roadhouses are
Pi,,g a harvest from the.folk who
rave| tho now line," said    F.    M.
Reynolds of Prince Rupert who left
lll(.re    Saturday,  November  8,  and
ached Fort George In eleven days,
November 19.    Mr. Reynolds Is   a
mcmbiT ol' the Prince Rupert firm of
Collart & Reynolds, and is shortly to
open an office in this district.
■■From Rupert we went by train
to Mili' 303, Decker lake, at that
Utne the end of steel, reaching there
Sunday afternoon. We had spent
Saturday night en route at Smithers,
the passenger divisional point where
,!,(. nvo trains now in operation on
tl,r ursl end meet. Something like
400 poop1" wore dumped off the two
trains and Smithers has sleeping accommodation for about 100 and
those at $1 per. A big crowd of
workmen is at present putting up
buildings m fast as possible and also
gaping in most of the    available
beds.
"The roadbed from Prince Rupert
to Hazelton is fine, but this side of
Hazelton much rougher since lt is
not yet ballasted.
-The thirty miles this side of
Decker Lake was ready for the
track-layer, so that by now the
tracks are probably to Freeport at
the head of Bums Lake. We went
trom thc end of steel to Freeport by
gasoline scow, and from there by
foot overland seventeen miles to
Pine Creek, where we spent the
night at a very nice roadhouse. Our
ntxt stop was Kndako, a mile west
of Stella. The grade Ib almost completed to this poiut, and Dan Sheedy,
who has the contract at that point
said he would be finished wth his
work by April 1. From Stella we
passed through the Stella Indian reserve and came to the G.T.P. town-
site of Fraser Lake. We stayed
there over night and next day made
the thirteen miles to Fort Fraser,
wliere we stayed two days. At this
poiut we crossed the Nechaco river
by ferry. The people here seem generally to effect that the golden spike
will be driven In their territory. It
seemed probable to me also since
Bostrom's contract Is so far behind
while most of the others are well
advanced. The grade Ib practically
completed all along the line and
every contractor assured me that
he would be finished by April. There
are only some 150 miles now to be
linked up with the Bteel, so the end
should not be long In coming. We
made Mile 312 in one day from Fort
Praser and Burns & Jordan's camp
at Mile 29*1 the next day. A third
hlko brought us to Mile 283, a
fourth to 249, and the last stage to
Mile 236, Fort George, the mecca of
our journeyings.
"1 shall enjoy telling the people
of Prince Eupert how mild I have
found the climate here. We heard
some dreadful tales of the Fort
George winter weather.
"Regarding the land I noticed on
my trip, apart from the Pleasant
wlley in the liulkley country, I saw
very little good land immediately nd-
lolnlng the railway until after we
Passed Hums Lake. From here,
however, we found a fine farming
country, particularly along the
"outh side of Fraser Lake and to the
eastern end of It."

In 1901 Vancouver had a
population of 27,000; today
it has over 150,000. In 1903
its assessed property was
$22,936,835. Today it is
near $250,000,000. British
Columbia had 178,657 people in 1901, today it has over
400,000.
Last year British Columbia produced over $300 for
every man, woman and child
in the Province.
Yet, up to now, British
Columbia has had only one
railway—the Canadian Pacific—which barely skirts
the United States boundary.
Vancouver is only 156
miles above Seattle, while
t h e Northern boundary
of the Province is over 600
miles further North.
The Grand Trunk Pacific
is the first railway through
the immensely rich Central
British Columbia.
Its Pacific Coast teminus,
Prince Rupert, is 550 miles
north of Vancouver.
Trains are now running
from Prince Rupert east to
the first freight and passenger division point, Smithers.
The entire line, from Atlantic to the Pacific, will be
completed in 1914.
Smithers—named by the
Grand Trunk Pacific aftet
its highest official, Mr. Al
fred Waldron Smithers
Chairman of its Board of
Directors, is the railway's
only division headquarters
between Prince Rupert and
Prince George, a distance of
some 460 milcs through one
of the richest belts ni Western Canada.
Smithers is the dominating centre of the famous
Bulkley Valley, the flrst
large agricultural area ol the
Grand Trunk Pacific cast of
Prince Rupert.
The Bulkley Valley has
300,000 acres of rich argicul-
tural land, proven large deposits of coal, silver and lead
and almost inexhaustible
water supply.
Smithers was selected by
the railway company ior its
freight and passenger divi-
son headquarters and tin
town is owned by the Grand
Trunk Pacific Railway. It
is one of the only two such
division points on the Grand
Trunk Pacific in British
Columbia, the other
Prince George.
A new railway through a
new, virgin, rich, country
has created an opportunity
for you to share in the prosperity that will he treated
when its new line is opened
and the gigantic resources
of the country developed.
being
THE OPPORTUNITY IS SMITHERS
Smithers combines the
two supreme advantages
that have created large cities in the West—tributary
natural resources and support and backing of a transcontinental railway.
Smithers has the stupendous wealth of the rich
Bulkley Valley behind it —
agriculture, mines, water
water power. It also has the
backing and support of the
Grand Trunk Pacific Railway, not only because it is
the railway's official town,
but also because it is one of
its only two freight and passenger division point in British Columbia.
The railway company will
spend upwards of $250,000
at Smithers for shops, round
house and other terminal
improvements and freight
and passenger division point
facilities in Smithers, besides employing over 200
men at this point.
Approximately $50,000 has
already been spent in improvements at Smithers,
clearing    the site, grading
c walks
streets, building
etc.
Smithers is a hustling,
busy community today. In
June it had less than ten
people, today it has over
450. It has a bank, a sawmill, two newspapers, a large
number of stores and homes.
Over seventy-five new, permanent buildings are under
construction. Every train
brings new people and new
settlers.
Smithers will have an
electric light plant and a
modern water system, It
will have railway -Imps and
a railway payroll. It will
be the distributing point ior
the entire Bulklcv valley.
Being thc nearest large
agricultural area to Prince
Rupert, Bulkley Valley is
bound to become that city s
chief source of supply for its
foodstuffs. Its products will
come through its natural,
logical centre—Smithers.
Central British Columbia
is just entering a period of
wonderful activity through
the opening of thc Orand
Trunk Pacilic.
Now is the time to heed thc opportunity at Smitheri
through the safest, cleanest and most satisfactory medium
of investment—real estate in an established community*
Anticipate the rush of settlers who follow in thc wakeol
a new railway with a good location in Smithers now. Hie
secret of the great fortunes of the West is the buying"1
real estate in growing towns before their greatest growth.
The best opportunity at Smithers is now—before the new
transcontinental is completed. Price of lots is low. I*-'"11*
