6tern Railway,   between   Newport
Ithe town of Lillooet, on ths Fra-
! River, was made recently.
grading operations along the north
jjjeof Seaton Lake, near Lillooet,
actually in progress,  many conation camps have been opened and
lers are being established as rspidly
■possible.
Tour miles of grading from the end
Iteel on the Howe Sound & North-
] Railway, recently acquired by the
lific Great Eastern, will be done by
, Welch. His work will start at the
Ifluence of the Squamish and tha
lakamus rivers, and will extend up
I valley of the latter stream. With
1 exception of five miles in the val-
j still unlet, the sub-contract* going
Itheastfrom the end of the four-
■ section to be built by Mr. Welch

las the summit of the divide be-
sen Howe Sound and Pemberton
ladovvs; McCall &   Wilson,   seven
McGowan & Murcheson,   five
McGillivray Bros., five miles;
Alpine & Cunningham,   five miles.
■he work   along   the   Cheakamus
|er, especially the sub-contract of
fall & Wilson   around Bear Moun-
, is very heavy,  probably on ac-
nt of its inaccessibility  and   tha
tpnessof the banks of the river,
falling any other railway construe-
ever undertaken in British Co-
Ibia.
lommencing near the town of LU-
it sub-contracts for forty-two miles

Vport is a busy place since tha
factors started to ship in men and
T*ng outfits which are being ship-
J inland by rail for distribution
K the route. Mr. Welch hu defined to push the construction with
[possible speed, and expects that
Iral thousand men will be assem-
1 in the various -construction camps
tm tne ""t three weeks. As the
f up Cheakamue Valley is without
Importation facilities with the ex-
I'on of a rough pack trail, Mr.

Lake are nearing completion, and will
go into commission December 1, and a
similar equipment on Anderson Lake
a few weeks later.
Headquarters camps have been established at the end of the Howe
Sound line and at the town of Lillooet,
where hundreds of tons of supplies are
being assembled. Supplies for the et st
end of the contract are being shipped
in by wagon from Lytton, between
which point and Lillooet Mr. Kellett
last week established two camps for
the accommodation of freighters.
Mr. Kellett is a veteran railway man,
having been connected with Mr. Welch's
company for many years, sometimes in
an official capacity and at other times
as a sub-contractor. He has assisted in
building thousands of miles of railways
in Canada and the United States. He

A press dispatch from Seattle
says: Similarity in appearance
of the new Canadian $10 gold
pieces and the Canadian penny,
and the consequent danger of
confusion of the two, has caused
Seattle banking men to issue specific directions to the men at the
windows to look out for the penny. Both coins are nearly alike
in appearance, excepting that the
penny is a trifle the smaller. The
obverse and reverse sides of the
coins are similar, excepting that
th« lettering is respectively "Ten
Dollars" and "One Cent." Both
coins were minted this year and
at the same time. The penny is
of an unusually light copper color, the bust of King George being shown in relief on both coins,
and the gold coin is the first ever
turned out by the Canadian
mint paper currency having been
the circulating medium above the
value of fifty cents. Business
men have been warned of an attempted fraud on the part of
men in Canada who have triple-
plated the new Canadian penny
with gold and have floated the
coins in the States as $10 gold
pieces, relying on the hurry of
business to successfully conceal
the tell-tale lettering. It is stated
that a number of such coins have
been passed in the Pacific Northwest It was on account of the
danger of fraud and the ease
with which it might be committed
that local banks have warned
employees handling cash to keep
a sharp lookout for the belligerent from over the boundary line.

FORT GEORGE PRE-EMPTOR
DIES SUDDENLY AT
NEWWESTISTER
Death from apoplexy, caused
by indigestion, due to over-eating, was the verdict of a New
Westminster jury, Nov. 23, in
the case of Charles Fetrow, who
recently arrived there from Fort
George. He had fallen in a fit
in the B. C. E. R. depot, and expired shortly after his removal
to the hospital.
Charles Fetrow was one of the
old-time pre-emptors and well
known. Like many another of
the early settlers, he sought land
for the quality of it, not for its
proximity to a subdivision, and
in consequence walked over fortunes. He located his pre-emption up the Nechaco, some five
miles west of Ovasco's, and his
land is considered No. 1 from an
agricultural standpoint. Had he,
however, located seven miles
closer in, on the vacant land near
what is known as the Grand
Trunk gravel pit, he would have
had a comfortable competency
without the resultant hard labor
of a British Columbia pre-emp
tor. Land in this vicinity has
sold for $100 an acre, and some
higher. Mrs. Fetrow, who predeceased her husband less than
a year, was Hhe first white
woman to come into the Fort
George district and take up her
residence here. Mr. Fetrow was
a native of Indiana.
ONE IN FOURTAKES LAND
Statistics compiled by Charles
S. Hotchkiss, commissioner for
Alberta, show that the popula
tion of that province has increased between 90,000 and 100,000
during the last fiscal year, as
compared with 70,000 the year
before. He estimates the present population of Alberta at half
a million, as against 372,238, as
shown by the last federal census.
His reports indicate that one of
every four homeseekers settles
on farm lands. Many of the newcomers are experienced farmers
from England, who bring a
knowledge of mixed farming and
dairying. Plans are under way
to bring as many people as possible from Great Britain, where
200.000 men are ready, but without sufficient funds to undertake
the journey to Western Canada.
Mr. Howhkiss said: "All that
Alberta needs is more men and
women."
Railway From Eagle Lake to
Barkerville Asks for Charter
The Cariboo, Barkerville &
Willow River Railway company
will apply to parliament for permission to build a line extending
from a point on the G.T.P. railway company's projected line of
railway at Eagle Lake, thence
following as nearly as possible
the Willow river to the town of
Barkerville, B.C., and also authorizing the construction of the
following extension and branch
lines:
(a) From a point at the southern end of the company's line
near Barkerville by the most
feasible route following the general direction or valley of Williams creek and Pleasant valley
to a point near Cunningham
creek.
Thence following the general
direction or valleys of Cunningham creek, Swamp river, Cariboo
lake and the north fork of the
Quesnel river to a point near
Quesnel Forks, it will follow the
general direction or valley of the
south fork of the Quesnel and the
west shore of Quesnel lake to a
point at or near the mouth of
Horsefly river; thence to a point
near its source.
From there it is planned to run
to Clearwater river, thence following the general direction or
valley of the Clearwater river to
a point at or near its junction
with the North Thompson river
and,
(b) From a point on the main
line of the company's railway
about seventeen miles or thereabouts from its northern terminus and thence in an easterly
direction by the most feasible
route to a point at or near Bear
river, a distance not exceeding
twenty miles.
"Big Julia" Shot Down by
Frank Taft at Mile 53
REAVER TRAPPING
BYTHE INDIANS
The Victoria office of the attorney-general has been advised
that the Indians Benjamin Ber.-
nett and Phillip Roberts, arrested recently at Terrace, on the
Skeena river, and charged with
violation of the Game act, in the
killing of beaver despite the protection extended to this animal
until November 15th next, have
been released on suspended sentence.
In this case the plea was put
forward by the Indians that they
had always been accustomed to
take the beaver, that the salmon,
their staple food supply, had
this year failed, and that the
beaver were essential for the
preservation of the tribe from
hunger, if not starvation. Indian
Agent C. C, Perry strongly urged the injustice of penalizing the
Indians under such circumstances, especially as the tribes
of the Stickine, the Liard and
the Peace River are still permitted to trap and take the beaver,
nor violate the law in so doing,
When the case at Terrace was
brought to the attention of Deputy Attorney-General McLeod he
intimated that the game law. as
almost any other law, was meant
to be interpreted with some discretion. Magistrate Little seemingly viewed the alleged offence
in a similar light, and there will
be no disposition at Victoria to
interfere with his decision in the
matter. Meanwhile representations are to be made to the attorney-general in the hope of securing a relaxation of the beaver
trapping prohibition for the.benefit of the natives in certain beaver-over-run districts, where at
the same time general food supplies are far from plentiful,
QUESNEL COURTHOUSE
Plans and specifications have
been completed in the architect's
branch of the Public Works department for the new provincial
offices and courthouse at Quesnel
and tenders will be invited calling for the immediate completion
of the building, The structure
will occupy a commanding site
and will have a frontage of 31
feet by a depth of 09 feet. On
the ground floor will be public
offices, with private quarters for
the government agent, the assessor, the sheriff and the constable,
the latter living upon the premises, The basement will contain
provision for storage, four double
steel cells, and an ample kitchen.
On the first floor will be the
courtroom, with special and suitable rooms for judge, jurors and
barristers. The building is to be
of frame, on a [concrete foundation, with a large steel fireproof
yault.
In the prize fights which occurred across the line Thanksgiving
night (28th ult.) Battling Nelson
was thoroughly whipped by Leach
Cross in ten rounds. Ritchie defeated Wolgast, the lightweight
champion in sixteen rounds.
Wolgast fouled his opponent
twice.
The top fell off Jackass Mountain, near North Bend, last week
and destroyed 250 feet of the
C.N.R. tunnel.
What is said to be a feud of
long standing over a woman resulted in the slaying of a man
known along the G. T. P. grade
as "Big Julia,"thestronjest and
biggest man on the grade, early
last week, by Frank Taft, a barber, at Mile 29, B. C.
Taft, it appears, fired one shot
from a .38 calibre revolver, at
the laborer's heart. The bullet
failed to take effect; and as "Big
Julia" turned and ran Taft fired
at the abdomen, killing the man
instantly. Only one man was an
eye-witness of the affair. His
name is Taylor and he refuses to
divulge any information as to the
cause of the fracas. Immediately after the murder Taft was
taken into custody by Constable
Campbell Nelson, of the provincial police, who lodged the murderer in the small lock-up at
Mile 29. Taft confessed to the
murder, and fearing that he
would be the victim of a lynching party of citizens, requested
that he be removed to the lockup at Mile 52. A Grand Trunk
locomotive was chartered and
the prisoner placed on board and
taken to Mile 52. At the time
of being transferred Taft refused to divulge the cause of the
deed. He merely told the officers
a long story about his being
generally disliked by the citizens
at Mile 29. and being unable to
understand the feeling towards
him.
Neither of the men engaged in
the fracas has been known to
indulge in intoxicants, Taft
will come up before Inspector
Bates at Mile 52, for his preliminary hearing.
SETTLED INJO MINUTES
Edmonton, Alta., Nov, 24. —
Mayor Armstrong, who is not a
candidate for re-election; Samuel
Young, head of a bridge contracting firm; A. Farmllo, of the
Edmonton Trades and Labor
council, and representatives of
the steel workers, settled a strike
of seven weeks' duration on the
bridge across the Saskatchewan
river, at their first conference,
which occupied less than twenty
minutes. The contractors agreed
to pay 50 cents an hour for nine
hours to steel workers. The former scale was 45 cents an hour
for ten hours. The men are now
at work. The structure will be
used by the Canadian Pacific
Railway company in gaining entrance to its new passenger station in Jasper avenue, from the
south side. A number of men
were imported recently to take
the place of the strikers, but refused to work after reaching the
city.
Edmonton, Alta., Nov. 24. —
Edmonton is in the thick of a
lively three-cornered mayoralty
contest. The candidates are—
W. Short, K.C. formerly mayor,
who framed the present charter,
which gives the city thc widest
possible latitude for self-government: W. J. Magrath, retired
millionaire land-owner, who favors extensive improvements, under the slogan, "Fair play and a
square deal for everybody," and
Aid. Joe A. Clarke, formerly of
the Yukon country, known by
his friends as "the insurgent of
the council" and "watchdog of
the treasury." Two thousand
women, of a total electorate of
17,000, are eligible to vote at the
election on December 9. 1v»

Lot 483
This property is situated within one mile of the
Railway Depot and terminal yards, right across the
railway and traffic bridge of the Fort George G. T.
P. townsite and Indian Reserve.
 It is the choicest property in the district and the best buy on the market today.
Because it was the first established post of the H. B. Co.. 50
years ago,
Because it wa3 the first selected pre-emption by the early
settlers.
Because it is like Strathcona to Edmonton.
 Then why boy twenty-five foot lots when you can get 11-2 acres for
half the price and within closer radius of the G. T. P. Depot
