FAITH IN PRINCE GEORGc
Referring editorially to the sale of
Prince George,  the Vancouver Sun of
', Sopt. 'i'i states :
"In view of all the recent talk rcs-
'] pecting the  tightness   of  the  money
market it is gratifying to observe that
i the confidence of the investing public,
both  at  home  antl abroad, in British
Columbia has suffered no diminution.
The  three days' sale of the old Fort
George Indian reserve, which was held
ihere lust weok established conclusively
i that  this province continues to be regarded as a most desirable field for investment.   The total sales  amounted
to more than $1,250,000, and the prices
offered  showed  that  the buyers   had
every faith in the future  of the town,
and of the province.
"Among the purchasers were representatives of several large English and
European financial concerns, who displayed especial eagerness to secure the
higher-priced lots. In one instance
fourteen thousand dollars was paid for
a double corner lot and the purchaser
was eviden'.ly of the opinion that he
had obtained a bargain at that. It was
noticeable that the largest purchasers
were men who 'bad been over the
the ground and had made a careful examination of the possibilities of the
district. They were hard-headed busi-
ness men who'are not likely to be deceived in placing capital and who want
absolute security for their money.
According to   A. Kellett,   superin-
! tendent of construction of the Pacific
Great   Eastern   railway   under Pat
Welch,   the    contractor,    twenty-live
j per cent, of the grading of the line
J hetween Horseshoe    Bay  and  North
| Vancouver has been completed. There
are now about 300 men at work on
the operations, the force being dis-
; tributed all along the length of the
: line,   and  accommodated  at the  six
| camps which have    been established
at different points.
Work on the bridges and the piling
for the line which will follow the
foreshore for a considerable distance
into the city is also well advancod.
With reference to the Pacific Great
Eastern line now under the course of
ei instruction Mr. Kellett reports
general progress, and adds that, a
total force of -1,800 men is employed
betwoen tlie North Shore and Lillooet.
WILLOW RIVER RAILWAY
Amongst the arrivals here this
week* from Vancouver was Mr. C.
l)umphy, one of the promoters of the
Barkerville and Willow river railroad,
Mr. Dunpby states that the location of the Willow river railway is
practically completed, and he has
with him a survey party which will
bring the  work  to  completion.
The road has a federal subsidy and
according to Mr. Dunpliy construction work will commence in the course
of the next year.

Interior of British Columbia.

TRADITION goes for naught these clays, as exemplified
this week by receipt of information which states that
the British Columbia Express Company has lost the contract for carrying His Majesty's mail into Old Cariboo.
For years past the red stage coaches of the British
Columbia Express Company have carried the royal mail
into every nook and corner of the great web of railroad-
less country reached by the Cariboo road and its tributaries. From the meagre information that has been received we understand that the contract has now been let
to a group of gentlemen who have underbid the B. C.
Express Company. The mail is to be handled by these
people from a date in the near future, and the people of
Cariboo who have grumbled at the really splendid service
given by the express company during the years that have
gone await the outcome with some anxiety.
lt is not to be presumed that the British Columbia Express company is the only organization extant capable of
handling the mail contract in the Cariboo, but it is an
obvious fact that this company, through its years of experience and amassed equipment, is in the best position
to handle the mail with the precision and speed which
the public demand in the transit of its mail matter.
It may be that the gentlemen who are "long" on B.X.
stock have planned one of those incomprehensible "deals"
which nobody understands until after the profits are
added up, and that the change in mail contractors preceded other changes. It would undoubtedly be a healthy
thing for Cariboo, old and new, if there were competition
in rapid transit over the Cariboo road, but above all
things we wish to see thc handling of our mail facilitated
in every manner, and we do not believe that the people
of this section of British Columbia will appreciate the
usages of political economy in the matter of the Cariboo
mail contract.
^HE Grand Trunk Pacific railway have-made a magnificent success of the sale of their Prince George
townsite. They have established several important
points in local history. First, they have re-christened
Fort George by introducing their name of Prince George,
which will identify the city in the future ; and, secondly,
they have established, through the judgment of many
experienced and conservative purchasers of city property,
the particular parts of the new city which are in line for
rapid development into the most important business
sections.
The announcement which appears in this issue shows
that the railway company appreciates the fact that there
are many people here who should be given an opportunity to invest in their townsite, and they have laid their
plans to embrace this faction.
The Herald wishes to again warn the reading public
against paying any more attention to the hollow arguments which certain townsite promoters are still struggling to force upon the public through the medium of
large advertisements. For years past it has been universally recognized that upon the completion of the
Grand Trunk Pacific railway an important city would establish at the junction of the Fraser and Nechaco rivers
in the natural evolution of events. This premeditated
fact has led to the discounting of this future in various
ways and the offering for sale to a distant public of
"townsites" large and small, good, bad and indifferent,
under various representations, many of which were
grossly exaggerated, and some grossly misleading.
The sale of the Prince George townsite was in no wise
accomplished by advertising. The place was recognized
by the public at large as the real city, and certain assurances were made by the railway company regarding
their intentions in the premises. The public were supplied with maps showing the various lots, and the man
who paid the highest price became the owner of each lot
offered. It was very simple, very conclusive, and a
magnificent tribute to the recognized future of this place
at large.
Incidents of the sale showed that certain interests tried
to establish high values in localities where the property
offered was recognized as residential and not business
property.   These attempts were miserable failures.
The future of Trince George now depends upon nothing
but the activities of the people who intend to produce a
city upon the site they have acquired in anticipation.
ALL PERSONS are hereby warned
against trespassing upon any property
' of the Crown in the Subdivision of Lot
343    Group  1.   Cariboo   District,   and
| known as the Townsite of Princ Geeoge.
Any person disregarding this notice
will be prosecuted in  accordance with
I the provisions of Section   134  and fol-
j lowing Sections of Chapter 129 of the

Any person or persons in illegal occupation of Crown property in the said
Townsite will not be permitted to remain in such occuiiation, and no protection will be given l» the owner of any
improvements that may exist upon such

A Mysterious
Man	
A few nights ago a gentleman
entered our store wearing a gray
suit, a slouch hat and spoke with a
foreign accent.
His appearance seemed to indicate
a peculiar intelligence, and he impressed us of having seemed more
prosperous days, but as though adversity had crossed his path making
it necessary for him to battle for a
livelihood with the more coarser
elements.
He stood for a few moments
fumbling with a pair of pants, then
suddenly disappeared, and so did the
pants.
We do not wish to insinuate that
he stole the pants, but simply take
it that on account of the great rush
of business in oui store that he was
neglected, became impatient, or
perhaps on account of temporary
embarrassment ho carried them
away intending at some future date
to return and settle.
Of course, we have several hundred pairs just like the pair that
went missing, but the loss of the
pair knocks the profits.
But he did not get at our hats,
underwear, blankets, mackinaws,
up shirts or shoes. We can, therefore, afford to cut on these lines.
Drop in and see us open up our fall
clothing. We have just placed on
exhibition as exhibit A for the week,
two cords of blankets, one cord of
mackinaws, one cord of Stanlield's
underwear, half cord of ladies'
coats, and a cord  and a half of sox.
Our hats, nails, rooting and building paper we haven't meusured yet,
but will announce their cubical contents later on.
Our prices are infallible.

Farming conditions in the
neighborhood are looking up.
The government is strictly enforcing the law which requires
pre-emptors to reside for a stated period on their pre-emptions
and to clear a certain acreage.
This has put a stop to the practice formerly somewhat prevalent, of men residing in town
taking up pre-emptions for purely speculative purposes. The result in the way of promoting actual settlement has been undoubtedly good. An agricultural
fair, the second of its kind to be
held at Fort George, took place
last week,   Mr. Middleton and
ment of agriculture, who were
present, declared that the vegetables and grasses were good,
The grain did not show up so
well, having been for the most
part prevented from ripening
properly by too much rain. The
horses exhibited were excellent.

question prove excellent for

prices which proved that some
people have great faith in the
future. The townsite controversy is no longer so severe as it
was a year or two ago, but it is

Apart from the question of

made at Smith Fort George that
the absence of a small debts

they are frequently abandoned
altogether rather than incur the
trouble and expense which would
be involved in attempts at collection. At Central Fort George

The Fort George Herald WORKMEN FIND IT HARD
TO CASH CHEQUES
The following article, bearing
the Fort George date of Sept.
24, is taken from the Vancouver
Province •
The Provincial Labor Commission of British Columbia arrived
here last week from Edmonton
two days behind its schedule
time, having been detained on
its journey at Golden by the
landslide on the C.P.R. Brief
stops were also made at Calgary
and Edmonton, where it was
found that the work of the commission has aroused a certain
amount of interest, It is felt
that if any drastic legislation is
enacted dealing with labor conditions, such as establishing an
eight-hour day or a minimum
wage, the effect would be widely
felt throughout the western section of the Province of Alberta.
For this reason the report of the
commission will be awaited in
the cities of the neighboring
province with some degree of
concern.
After leaving Edmonton the
commission proceeded to Tete
Jaune Cache, a town whose
glory has pretty nearly departed. While it was the end
of steel, it was a flourishing centre of population, but now that
railway construction has moved
westward, Tete Jaune Cache
consists of little more than a
railway station. There is not
even a postoffice, the mail being
placed in a box in the waiting
room of the station where everyone is at liberty to help himself.
A mile to the eastward is located the residence of the stipendiary magistrate and the headquarters of the Siems-Carey construction outfit. It was at this
point that the commissioners
held their first sitting during the
itinerary. Here, as elsewhere,
the chief cause of complaint
was as to the difficulty of cashing time cheques. This complaint was repeated at Mile 49,
at Mile 145 and at Fort George.
The merchants along the road
appeared to be of opinion that
one object, at any rate, is to
compel the men to buy their supplies from the contractors, but
the contractors allege that the
chief aim is to discourage the |
presence of illicit liquor dealers |
and tin-horn gamblers, who!
might infest the construction
camps if time cheques were pay-;
able when in the hands of third j
parties.
The commissioners during the
trip from Tete Jaune Cache to
Fort George were much indebted I
to the kindness of the contractor (
Mr. W. F. Carey, being his
guests for three nights along the
route and also having the use of
his launch, which is known as'j
the."Bald Face Horse." How
the launch came to be so named
js a mystery which has aroused
the curiosity of everybody from
Prince Rupert to Winnipeg. Mr.
Carey refuses to disclose the secret, but he has promised to tell
the story on the day that the last
spike is driven. Meantime the
commissioners found the animal
a very comfortable and convenient means of locomotion.
The country around Tete Jaune
Cache is still practically unsettled. Most of it is crown land
which has not yet been open for
settlement. There are a considerable number of men between
there and the present end of
steel at Mile 145 who having
fixed their eyes on good pieces
of land which they have selected
are awaiting hopefully the day
when it will be thrown open. A
rumor has penetrated the district
to the effect that the Attorney-
General, in a speech at Revel-
stoke about a year ago, drew an
oratorical picture of the 30,000
settlers who would sopn be on
their march into the district, and
il is hinted that their coming-
would be accelerated if the reserve on the land were removed.
It is rather doubtful-just what
kind of farming can be done immediately around Tete Jaune
Cache, as summer frosts are
quite frequent, but a little further on this difficulty is not found.
All along the banks of the Fraser
the land is said to be good and
comparatively easy to clear.
At Mile 145, and again about
fifty miles further down the river, the railway company has
been granted permission to use
low level bridges. The bridge at
Mile 145 is already practically
complete. The false work for
the other structure is about two-
thirds built. As those bridges
will have the effect of blocking
the navigation of the river,
making the people altogether
dependent on the railway, there
is considerable grumbling at the
Railway Commission for giving
permission to erect such structures. The people seem to think
that it will result in giving the j
railway an unnecessary monopoly |
of the traffic. Railway officials,
on the other hand, contend that
the river navigation is at best '.
only a temporary expedient, being dangerous as well as costly, j
Freight is now taken down the!
river on scows, which cost $150
each to construct. These scows
are broken up to be used as old
lumber on their arrival at Fort
George, if indeed they succeed
in getting through the canyons,;
where many of them are smashed upon the rocks and their car-
goes lost, The number of men
who have been drowned during
the present season in this section
of the Fraser is variously esti-
mated, but the known cases are
thirteen. In a river of this
character, it is claimed that there I
is no object in keeping the navi- j
gation open. Be this as it may
one result of the low level bridges will inevitably be that the!
country bordering on the river
above them will be rendered permanently tributary commercially
to Edmonton. The bridges thus
Beem likely to militate to some
extent against Fort George in its
ambition to become a great city
in the shortest possible time,
Coming down the river the
commissioners stopped for two I
nights at the construction camps,
A story was related for their
amusement at one of them, to
the effect that a recent visitor
was awakened in the morning
by a tame bear sucking at his
big toe. He didn't know the
bear was tame.
The grade all along this section
is well advanced, there being
only some eight or ten miles on

Barkerville,   Sept.    27th.-A
fatal shooting accident occurred
on Mt.  Greenburg,   four miles
north of this place, on Saturday
last, when Albert Smith, an employee   of   the West  Canadian
Deep Leads Co,, lost his life under tragic  circumstances.    He
was returning from a hunting
trip, and on a rocky part of the
trail he stumbled and fell, discharging his 12-gauge shot gun
into his left leg just above the
ankle, almost completely severing the member.   Without aid to j
stop the How of blood, he died
within sight of camp.   The remains were not discovered until
the following Tuesday,  though;
search parties had been out three
days ami had passed close by the
spot.     The   body was  covered!
with fresh snow, and almost concealed by a large log,    When |
discovered it was evident he had
endeavored to improvise a tourniquet with his shoe lace, having
taken it from his boot, but failing with this he had taken the
shoulder strap from his cartridge
bag and tied it above the wound,
but   with   loss  of   blood  and
strength gone he was unable to
tie it tight enough.  The remains
were brought into the camp by
the search party, and thence into town in Mr, Bonner's auto,
and will be interred in the local
cemetery.   At the inquest Dr.
Callanan   gave   evidence    that
Smith could not have lived over
twenty minutes after receiving
the wound, without aid.
Deceased was a man of 40
years, single, and a native of
England.
Branch of the Grand Trunk Pacific railway, where, residents of
the district say, much flour gold
has been panned during the last
seven months. He returned to
his Eldorado the night of September 15, with a party of acquaintances, including C. _ L.
Richardson, former city auditor
of Edmonton, J. S. Scrimgeour,
barrister, and A. G. Wilson, a
structural engineer, to stake

Count Deno de Spetia, an expert mineralogist, headed another party of 24, including J, S.

Bobtail Lake, Sept, 25.— In a

evening,  Geo. E. James, teamster for the Pioneer Stage Line,
was drowned. With a companion
named Seldon, James started to
make a trip from here to Ras-
mussen's   ranch,  about    seven
miles.   When   down   the   lake
about five miles the canoe upset.
Both men succeeded in getting
on top of the upturned boat, but
James decided to swim to shore,
a distsnee of about five hundred!
yards,  When he had been swim- j
ming about five minutes he went
under,  and his companion saw!
him no more.   So far the body!
