Rapid progress is being made oh
thc new Blair building on Hamilton
Avenue. When completed this building will be one of the largest In the
north country. The frame work and
inside walls are being built of the
lumber from the dismantled scows
which landed the huge consignments
of freight brought down river by
the Glair  lirm  this summer.
The lower floor on Third street is
taken by Messrs. Williams, Murdoff
& Gething, the well known Vancouver realty firm having taken Mr.
Gething into partnership.
Several new buildings are being
erected on the Prince George town-
site already. The McCafcrty building
on Third Street near George is approaching completion, and this building, at the moment of writing, is

FIRE DEPARTMENT BENEFIT
/lhe fire department benefit, held in
the Fort Georgo Theatre last Monday
evening, was a success both from the
standpoint of the entertainment features and from the more important es-
pect of finance, from beginning to end.
The big theatre was well tilled, and
the large amount raised by tha bidding
arrangement covers all the outstanding
obligations of the fire department. A
statement will be issued shortly showing what has been accomplished and
what equipment the town now has on
hand.
The event largely owes its success to
the efforts of M. C. Burr, a local real
estate man and one of those interested
in the Fort Georgo Theatre.
ATTACKED BV A GRIZZLY
Duncan Mcintosh, a prospector well
Known in South Fort George, nearly
lost his life in a struggle with a grizzly-
bear at Hunters' Basin, near Telkwa,
recently. The bear forced his way into
ihe cabin where Mr. Mcintosh was
sleeping. Mr. Mcintosh awoke and
tired at the intruder, hut not before he
; was badly bitten and clawed. Bxhaust-
| ed and bleeding, he walked seventeen
milea into Telkwa. The body of the
grizzly was found near the cabin.

THE passing away of James Cowie, a man we will call
one of God's best creations, removes from the midst
of this pioneer settlement a man amongst men. James
Cowie was a friend of all mankind, and was by all men
beloved, for the qualities which endeared him to those
with whom he came in contact were rare indeed in these
modern days.
A man born in the Shetlands, from whence the Hudson's Bay Company has always drawn the greatest of its
officers, James Cowie entered their service and lived
from that day on to do his share towards the traditional
aims of the" great trading concern. Imbued with the
famous "esprit de corps" of the company, James Cowie
lent, in his life, through unswerving loyalty and devotion to duty, a large quota of the dignity and greatness
traditional to the service of the Adventurers of England
trading into Hudson's Bay.
There are men scattered all over the face of Canada
who will recall many a kind action of the old gentleman
who has passed from his last post on the long journey.
The writer, who served under the deceased in the service
of "the company," can recall many nights in the old log
house, in the days when the name of Fort George signified nothing but James Cowie's fur-trade post, when the
genial and dignified old gentleman would do his best to
entertain the trappers, engineers or pioneer settlers who
happened to be at the post on business. They were great
days, and in the annals of the pioneers the name of
James Cowie is indelibly linked with their dearest
memories of those strenuous times.
And so there passes from amongst us another great
pioneer. A man much of whose life has been lived for
the service of a company in the remote hinterlands and
the waste places where Indians hunt for their furred
quarry. Gone upon the journey whence no traveler returns, James Cowie leaves behind him a record of a life
well lived and a duty well performed.
^HE journalistic jackal of Saturday Sunset fame, John
P. McConnell, is again casting covetous eyes at the
Cariboo, which he regards as a constituency which offers
the line of least resistance in the provincial legislature
for himself as a Liberal candidate. The Vancouver
journalist was a visitor to Quesnel last week, extended
his skirmishing tour to Barkerville, and on returning to
Quesnel he dallied not to journey hither but beat it to
the south again, passing up the most important section
of his would-be "constituency."
Some years ago, when John P. McConnell needed the
money so badly that he entered into a boosting campaign
for certain green-goods men in this section, and inadvertently became embroiled in a turmoil of criticism
which led him to libel many highly respected and honorable gentlemen, he printed many statements about the
Fort George section which time and development have
branded as hopeless misrepresentations, told for a purpose, and the reason for their telling is well known
throughout the Cariboo. McConnell had better stay in
Vancouver and assist Mr. Bowser to re-election by his
continued vituperation.
JN a recent issue of the Victoria Times, the organ of an
ex-minister in the Laurier government, appears the
following statement, made by a man just out of the
Burnaby jail, and delivered to the press from Vancouver
Rescue Mission:
"The prisoners," he said, "in Burnaby lie on iron beds
without any mattress and are fed on mush. I have soldiered in India and South Africa and never saw the like
of it. An uncivilized Kaffir would give another Kaffir a
mattress to lie on. They have men from Fort George in
for six months for paltry offences that would get them
ten days in any other country. It costs the government
about $1000 to take them first to Soda Creek by boat,
then by automobile to Ashcroft, then by train to Kamloops, then train to Burnaby, and they are finally dumped
into Vancouver broke. They refuse to send their blankets and clothing with them."
It must naturally be supposed that prisoners, as a
class, will endeavor to vituperate the minor courts
Whether the sentences imposed here are exorbitant is
for the Minister of Justice to decide, but it is our impression that sooner than go to the expense of sending men
to Kamloops the stipendiary magistrates, justices of the
peace and judge of the County Court here often impose
"ghter sentences than the offences warrant in order that
in tne local jan.
As we have claimed in
these columns during the
past several years, as a business proposition the province
should establish a provincial
jail in this section. The
saving in the transportation
of prisoners in a few years
would warrant the expenditure alone, and the many occupations which the prisoners would perform would
further justify the necessary
amount in the next estimates
of revenue and expenditure.

Appeal to the citizens of South Fort
George for their support.
Not because we are the pioneer
merchants of this city, but purely
on tccount of our prices, treatment
and the merit of our goods.
When we came to Cariboo first
the Fraser river was merely a
stream.
The Nechaco had just been dug,
In those days Fort George was lying in embryo, waiting to be fertilized by the industries and population of a great city, and the Ken-
nedy-Blair Co., Ltd., was unborn.
Since then we have watched all
three grow to maturity.
The Fraser a great river;
South Fort George budding into a
great city; and
The Kennedy-Blair Co., Ltd., into
a great mercantile firm.
We mean to keep pace and be a
credit to our city, and realize that
in order to do so we must be consistent and treat our customers on the
square.
We do not intend to get rich on
one customer, but by a small profit
on many thousands we expect to attain the same result.
We are specializing now on
stoves, hardware of all kinds; also

"British Columbia is marvelloua,"
declared Sir Gilbert Parker, after a
tour of a portion of the province. "I
do not think that anything that has
been said about Canada equals the demonstration of the facts themselves,"
The distinguished writer waa much impressed by the many changes noticed
since a former visit oyer twenty years
ago.
The new tariff law of the United
States is considered to be most favor-1
able to British Columbia, and in fact
to all Canada as well. Lumber, coal,
fish and wood pulp are the exports of
this province chiefly affected, and all
these will have a better chance in the
Amen.an market. The tariff, it is
thought, will stimulato trade and be of
mutual benefit to both countries.
Vancouver is making plans for the
1916 convention of the American Min-
ing Congress, and in connection with it
> great mining exhibition at Hastings
Park during three months of that year
is being discussed. This will be a
splendid advertisement of British Col-
umbia'a mining resources. Mining experts of the continent would be shown
'"•''"':•' mineral from salt to platinum all
I'i'-i.i-o.l in thia province.
Confidence in British Columbia seems
'o prevail in London for during the
PM week municipal bonds of Vancouver to the value of $2,240,000 were
Purchased there as soon as put on
the market. They were taken at 95
»nd bear interest at 4 1-2 per cent. A
somewhat larger block of Vancouver
bunds was taken in the same market
last July.
Livestock growers of British Colum-
™» will he invited to exhibit at the
Panama Exposition in San Francisco in
!'J1' A big stock show will be a feature of the fair, and the Progress Club
°f Vaneouver will try to interest breed-
er9 "f the province so that thoy will

A population of 20,000,000 within ten

McBride of British Columbia. He

MILES BY CANOE
On the 24th. of July, J. J. McKenna, of Edmonton, in company
with his partner, C. D. Melville, left
Edmonton, arriving at Atliabasca to
go on a canoe trip of 1,300 miles into
the wilds of the north country. They
went by way of Wabiscaw to Fort
Vermillion, tlicnce to Peace River
Crossing, (Jrouard, and then back to
civilization.
They started on their lonely but
interesting journey from Athabasca
on July 26th. going first to the Pelican and then northward up the Pelican river to Sandy lake, following
Sandy Lake into the Wabiscaw Lakes.
The country is under watte pretty
well all the way, so they got through
with the canoe without much difficulty. At Wabiscaw they srfcured a
number of good snapshots of Indian
dances and other views. They followed thc Wabiscaw rivcr to its
junction with thc Loon river, north
of the 75th, and went down Loon
to the Peace river below Fort Vermillion.
Back of tbe Buffalo Hills there is
some of the finest land anyone would
wish to see, and there is no better
in the north country.
Down the Loon river the country is
similar to that on the Wabiscaw,
except that there are many indications of minerals, Including sulphur
and iron, which at the mouth of the
Panny river, which is a tributary of
the Loon, there are many indications
of tar sands, already two claims
have been staked.
They had a sample of sulphur in
crude form and also a sample of
water from the same place. The
water is so full of sulphur it is impossible to   drink it.
The distance from Wabiscaw to
Peace River, at the mouth of the
Loon river, is 32 milea, and in this
distance there is a drop of 900 feet
with numerous rapids along the
route and three portages, most of
them small ones. While the Peace
River at the mouth of the Loon is a
mile to a mile and a half across,
the banks are only 50 feet high and
gradually rise from this point to 800
feet high  at Peace River Crossing.
Arriving in Vermillion Aug. 26 and
resting two days they had excellent
opportunity of studying the country
in and around Vermillion. The Vermillion district is exceptionally fine
for agricultural pursuits and ranks
second to none in the nortb. The
farm of Sheridan Lawrence is worthy
of special mention, where he has
raised this year 300 bushels of wheat,
which averaged 18 bushels to the
acre. Mr. Lawrence has a flour and
saw mill and many other modern improvements, which are lacking in
many of the more settled districts
of Alberta and the west. |
Vermillion was left behind on August 28th, and they crept their way up
the Peace River to the crossing,
which point was reached after 12
very strenuous days of paddling.
They continued their way to Grouard, thence to Sawridge and down
the Little River to the Athabasca
and on to the Landing, doing the
whole distance of 1,300 miles in a
little lesa than two months.

CLEAR OBSTRUCTIONS
IN ATHABASCA RIVER
A report from Athabasca of recent
date, states that Charles Hilker, of
that section, left recently with a
large crew of men and a raft of
machinery to commence operations
in blasting and removing the rocks
at Grand Rapids. The rocks in these
rapids, which are about 130 miles
north on the Athabasca rivor, have
been an obstruction to navigation
always, and many have been the difficult passages over them by parties
with boat and canoe. There has also
been numbers of fatalities at this
place, Bome of which have never been
brought to light.
The thousands of tons of freight
which leave Athabasca every year for
the great north country, some of
which goes right to the Arctic
ocean, have to be portaged several
miles around this dangerous waterfall, nnd the announcement that
Grand Rapids is to be made navigable and safe will be welcome news
to all, especially to those who have
to travel north.

Sumbia Falls,  John Loxton
d a young fellow who  was
ong with them last summer.
Thev started out to walk from
naesnelto Fort Fraser packing
S own grub,  blankets,  rifle
„rl some 100 rounds of ammu-
'■*_•,.„    When they got to Black-
Lter'they took the wrong road
,;d headed for Fort  George.
When they came within 7 miles
0f Kort (Jeorge they thought they
were far enough out of  their
way so they took the Nechaco
road' turning down to Mud River
at Slim Miller's.    John Loxton
was not closer to Fort George
this summer.
When they got to Fort Fraser
! where John Loxton had bought a
j ]0t and made one payment on
some acreage some distance out,
they were pretty well played out.
He was well pleased with his lot;
had bought it for $200 and the
lot next to it had sold for $600.
Next day they started out to look
at his garden plots,  but never
reached them,  as they had no
guide and there  was  no well-
beaten trail.
John Loxton was sadly disappointed in this country. He
didn't run across the big game
he expected in these parts. His
feet got sore, the weather was
very warm, and the sweat poured off John Loxton on the trail.
When he left Quesnel it was a
pleasure trip he started on. When
he got back to Quesnel he had
done the hardest month's work
he had done for years. John
Loxton was a detriment to the
party lie was in, and men of
John Loxton's stamp are very
little use in any new country.
Yours truly,
John McFie.

Captain O. J. Newcombe, mas-
the packet St. Michael, which
arrived from the mouth of the
Yukon, brings word of a rich
gold strike made on a stream
running into Palta Slough, one
of the most travelled steamer
channels on the Yukon river, 200
miles above St. Michael and 50
miles below the Russian mission.
The scene of the strike proper is
a stream 18 miles long, called
Wilson creek. The tundra is
seven to eight feet deep, similar
to the Nome country. Newcombe
says men were taking out $30 a
day to the rocker. He said he
had seen several with full pokes
offgold. The strike was made
four or five weeks ago. When his
steamer passed there nineteen
days ago fifty men had staked
claims, The same crowd also
staked smaller streams nearby
called Disappointment and Independence.

1 a button in the White House,
blew up the Gamboa dyke in the
Panama canal and removed the
last practical obstacle in the great
inter-oceanic waterway. A little
electric spark, originating when
President Wilson pressed the
button, sped more than 4000
miles overland and under water,
ignited the immense charges of
dynamite and virtually cleared
the Panama Canal. Electrical
experts calculated that within
four seconds after the initial impulse the current threw a small
switch at the Gamboa dyke,
which in turn set in motion other
apparatus, furnishing the current which exploded the charges.
The storm that devastated
Nome wiped the town of Solomon entirely off the map. Not
one building of any sort in the
settlement, which had a population of 300, remained standing
after the gale. It is reported all
the inhabitants escaped with
their lives when the town was
blown away. The town of Solomon stood on Norton Sound,
forty miles east of Nome, on the
Solomon river. It was the cous-
terminus of the Council City and
Solomon River railway and a
supply point for the Solomon
River and Casa de Paga mining
district.

great difelro of the government Lo \
