heir agents have been  in
the Peace River country all winter.
The new owners will carry on extensive colonization work, adopting
the methods which have been very
successful in settling Alberta, and
Saskatchewan.
"Arrangements were perfected some
time ago for placing the first contingent of American farmers in the
Peace River district, within the borders of British Columbia," said Mr.
Carter to a representative of a Vancouver daily. "These people are now
on their way to the 'promised land'
I ha'/e been advised that fifteen carloads of their effects have passed
through North Portal on the boundary line ten days ago. They will go
west from Edmonton over the Grand
Trunk as far as Edson, wliere they
will have an overland journey of less
than one hundred miles. The building of the railway will greatly facil
itate colonization work as it brings
the district within the reach of the
average settler.
"Formerly the man who had his
eye on that country had to consider
the task of travelling 500 miles
across country from Edmonton. The
Alberta Government is now building
a wagon road into the Peace River
country. It will be completed within
a month, and will make accessible
vast areas in Alberta and British
Columbia.
"The land is admirably adapted
for mixed farming, the summers
not being unlike those of more southerly latitudes, while the winters are
not severe owing to the prevalence of
Chinook winds. The contingent now
going in hail principally from Montana, consisting mostly of western
farmers, who are acquainted with the
methods of farming and ranching in
operation in the Peace. In the majority of instances they will bring
with them capital varying from |1,-
000 to $12,000. This type of people in
some respects can accomplish more
than the average homesteader who,
being usually without capital, takes
up government land.
"The three syndicates interested in
these recent purchases have enjoyed
extensive experience in colonization
work and will direct their efforts to
securing good American farmers
most of whom will have sold their
farms at good prices in the states,
before going north. The rapidity
with which Saskachewan and Alberta
were settled and crops secured from
the very start was because the colonization companies did their work
intelligently, the first essential being
to secure the right type of farmer
—the man from the west or middle
west with a certain amount of capital.
"I have no hesitation in predicting
that the next two years will witness
the settlement of between ten and
twelve thousand people in the Peace
river district of British Columbia, a
result of colon, zation methods,"
said Mr. Carter, and he speaks from
a thorough knowledge of his subject.
The Edmonton - Edson route could
not compare with the Port George-
Giscombe portage route if it were
taken up by the provincial government and sufficient money expended
to open up the Crooked River —a job
for the Dominion Government also-
bringing navigable water as close to
Giscombe Portage, and the Fraser
River steamboat service, thereby
linking the British Columbian Peace
River valley with British Columbian
distributing centres.
West Fears an Indian Mutiny

lontha ago for Ottawa, there to

L the land tor townsite purposes,
an interview with the Victoria
limes fives an opinion to the effect
lat tbe Northern   Interior Indians

lea list their white brothers this
funnier and that battle and murder
be the order of the hour. The
Idians, according to Father Bellot,
Ie starving to death.
•Father Bellot has carried on
lissionary work here for many years
thc order of the Oblatcs Mission
to Indians, and he may be considered an authority on Indian affairs.
In the Hazelton country, ever since
the escape of the murderer Gun-a-
noot, the red men have been gaining
in a vain courage, realizing that it
is possible for an Indian to escape
the long arm of the white man's law
by keeping to the woods. This is a
bad sentiment for the Indian mind,
as in their ineffectual brain it is liable to reawaken the hereditary germ
of homicidal tendency, which together with a draught of "fire-water"
may at any time be responsible for
bloodshed.
"The provincial government does
not know thc Indian, and does not
want to know the Indian," said
Father Bellot. "The red men," he
said, "have been cruelly oppressed
through indiscreet legislation by the
present provincial government. Their
lands have been pilfered and their
fishing rights usurped. Their rightful
quarry the wild animals have been
forbidden them. Wherewithal, then,
shall they be fed," he demanded.
"The Indians formerly lived largely
on fish, but the weirs have been torn
out of the streams that the fish
might be the more available to the
canneries. There were no new hunting
grounds to go to, and the old ones
were reserved for the pleasure of the
rich. In the land of their ancestors
the red men starved to death.
"They will not endure these cruelties many more moons. There is
many a box of bullets cached away
in the Skeena district, and in the
Skeena River country, and in thc
district round Hazelton. All the thirty tribes are well provided witb Winchesters and Remingtons. For two
years they have been storing away
ammunition. There is trouble in the
wind, and the provincial government is due to reap it.
"The Indian Is not allowed to preempt. When he settles on a piece of
land and attempts to cultivate it
a white settler takes it from him
and the inevitable fracas results in
the Indian going to jail. Peaceful
means of settling the difficulties have
been tried, but at last the Indian
has lost faith in the white man.
Some five years ago the Indians in
Fort George were a prosperous people as Indians go. They were in
great demand as guides and canoe
men for transportation. They made
thc few white men in the country, to
whom their services were at that
time indispensable, pay the most exorbitant figures for their services,
and they waxed exceeding fat. Now
the situation has changed and many
of the Indians who five years ago
would work and prosper in their
native element   are now sinking in
the grip of the undertow which the
advance of civilization brings to
them. The hunter who should now
be returning from his trap line with
tbe fur catch, one finds playing pool,
with borrowed quarters, whilBt his
family starves in a smoke house on
the rancherie. They will refuse any
work so long as the stores will allow them "jawbone," and are fastidious in the extreme regarding the
nature .of their employment.
What the Indians require, Is to be
kept as far as possible from the
white men until they gradually become inured to the demoralizing effects of civilization, which changes
the aspect of the life they have lived
for generations.
The missionaries have done a
splendid work amongst these Indians
but their hold upon the younger generation is fast being relaxed by the
proximity of their reservation to
their white brother's new town.

It has always been our contention
that the G. T. P . would have to
build their North and South line
from Fort George south, following in
a general direction the valley of the
Fraser. This in spite of the statements of General Manager Chamber-
Iain's statement, which he made immediately after taking up his duties
with the G. T. P. to the effect that
the company had decided to abandon
the idea altogether of building south
from Fort George which, according
to description, sawed across the
grain of the province in a straight
but impossible route route from Tete
Jaune Cache to Vancouver via the
Clearwater river. We have maintained for the past three years in

There we have as much land as we
are now located on — some 1350
acres. We will be happy there and
with the money we get for the new
townsite we will  start farming."
"How much is the road paying the
Indians for the reserve they are taking for a townsite?" Father Bellot
was asked.
"I would rather not state the figure now," he replied. "The Indians
arc being well paid and, in future,
let us hope they will not starvo as
they have in the past."
Fnthcr Bellot stated further that
with the proceeds of the sale of the
reserve to the G. T. P. railway, the
Indians would purchase machinery
and stock and begin farming on the
new tract of land. He declared that
the new reserve was far better suited for the men than thc one on
which will be built the official town
of Fort George. Then there is nn
advantage in that they will be isolated from the whites.
"There arc 125 people on the reserve," said the northern missionary. "They are quite energetic and
there is no doubt but what they will
make productive citizens."

THE SECOND INTERVIEW.
Father Bellot, the Fort George
missionary, was quoted several days
ago as saying that "Fort George
was a humbug, and that there were
too many Fort Georges."
Fnthcr Bellot desires to say that
the meaning he wished to bring out
was not made clear. His reference
was not to the legally registered
townsite of Fort George, but to the
fact that many subdivisions situated
miles from the legal registered town-
site were being put on the market.
Thc pioneer missionary is firm In the
belief that Port George proper will
be a Inrge and flourishing city within a very short time, especially in
view of the oHic. .1 announcements
made within the past few days by
the G. T. 1'. railway to the effect
tlmt their branch line to Vancouver
would be commenced at once.

OPERATIONS OF THE FORT
GEORGE TIMBER AND
TRANSPORTATION CO.
Rud Clarke, who was in charge of
the mill for the defunct Fort George
Lumber and Navigation Company
here last year, arrived on Tuesday's
stage from Quesnel, to take charge
of the operations here for the new
owners, the McArthur construction
company of Winnipeg.
Mr.Clarke brought Captain Ritchie
who was last season in command of
the Fort Fraser, to undertake the
salving of the steamer Chilco, which
lies on the West bank of the Fraser
near the mouth of tbe Blackwater
River. Cap. Ritchie has returned to
Quesnel from a trip of inspection to
the boat, and reports favorably on
thc chances of saving her. He left
Quesnel again this week with a crew
of fourteen men to undertake the
work.
The Chilco lies half submerged under the ice, on her beam ends. A six
foot bank will have to be graded
before the boat can be properly
hauled out for repairs. The salvage
crew are equipped with everything
in the way of gear to pull the boat
out, and it is to be hoped that success will crown their efforts.
The Chilco is the first boat that
navigated thc Cottonwood, Fort
George and Grand Canyons, and last
year, in charge of Captain Bonser
she ran up the Fraser as far as the
foot of the Goat River rapids.
Owing to her light draft and handy
size the Chilco has been able to navigate tho river a littler earlier and
later than the bigger boats, and it
will be good news to South Fort
George when wo hear of her salvage.
Captain Dally from the Columbia
River is now on his way to South
Fort George, with a crew of men, to
take charge of the Chilcotin, nnd to
get her ready for commission. This
Is the company's largest boat with
a carrying capacity of about 100.000
lb of freight. She was smashed in
the Fort George canyon on her
maiden voyage, last year, but no serious damage was done her, though
the accident prevented her from
continuing the season's run after her
first trip. The trouble was due to the
absence of steam steering gear,
which is to be installed this season.
An expert saw mill man has been
engaged by the McArthur company
to take charge of the mill, and he is
expected here in the near future.
Half a million feet of logs are lying
at the camp ready to be boomed to
the mill at South Fort George im-
meadiately open water allows.
SPRING IS HERE.
Oh you spring! Moccasins are being cached away for next winter,
Close & Brown are selling mackinaw
coats for cost, dinner can be eaten
without a lamp, and crows are
packing away the refuse hidden for
the past four months under a pall of
snow. These and other signs of
spring are abundant on all sides. The
roads that were snowy are now
muddy, and sleighing has given way
to wheeling. Spring is here, Soon
we may expect to see the sunflowers
and violets doing their annual stunt
in the gardens of our neighbors, and
to hear the, whistles of the Fraser
River fleet as its vessels come to
dock at South Fort George, laden
with thc multitudes of wise ones.
A public meeting will be held in
the Fourth Street hall on Tuesday
evening next, to discuss the celebrations for the first of July. Every
citizen is requested to attend.
It is reported that the Bank of
Vancouver intend to open a branch
at South Fort George this summer.
Wo wish to correct a mis-statement which appeared in last week's
issue, when we cited S. 8. Taylor,
of Vancouver, as an associate of Mr.
Cooke's in the promotion of a town-
site at Dome creek. Mr. J. A. Harvey is the name we should have
printed, as one of the syndicate. Mr.
Taylor is not interested.

vi_it to Vancouver this wtcL, having purchased a large stock of merchandise tor the approaching sea-

some time duck shooting in the

The South Fort George Quadrille
club held the last of the winter assemblies on St. Patrick's night. On
Monday a mcctinc; was held and the
election of officers for the summer
term held. The new committee consists of Messrs. Wm, Rowatt, J.
Clarke, R. Riggs, W. Howison, and
.1. McGaghey. A vote of thanks was
tendered tbe outgoing committee for
their arduous work in providing such
excellent entertainment during the
long winter nights, und then' crodit-
nble handling of the llnances of the
club. The new committee have decided to bold dances every other Friday, beginning with March 31. Mr.
Senior will be in charge of the orchestra arrangements.
Registered at the Northern Hotel
on Tuesday were E. Erdman and J.
Harpers. They are the forerunners ol
a throng who may be expected this
summer. One good feature in connection with the first arrivals is the
fact that they came aloot the entire
distance from Ashcroft. The distance
to Quesnel from the former place was
made iu eight days, and from Quesnel to Soutii Fort Geo.'ge the time
consumed was four days. They travelled late and early. Messrs Kidman
and Harpens are from Seattle, and
say that a vast multitude may be
expected here this summer and the
summer following.
VV. F. Cooke arrived in town last
Tuesday from Vancouver. Mr. Cooke
has purchased a large stock of goods
for the Northern Lumber Co.'s store
now In course of construction on
Second street. The store is to be
the largest in Cariboo.
The Northern Lumber Company are
shipping in a new boiler and it is
their intention to put in a planing
mill in town in due course of time.
Their planer, a Woods No.l machine,
is the best on the market.

John Enemark is erecting another
butcher shop for VV. T. Ewing, about
half a block below his present shop
oa Second street. This is an original
means of attempting to keep out any
opposition In one line of trade. We
can not sec how this ruse will effect
the desired result, and if the embreyo
Pat Burns docs not keep a better
meet supply on hand in the future
than South Ft. George has had in
the past there will certainly be a
good opening here for a live man.
People in Vancouver are kicking at
having to pay 35 cents a dozen for
eggs. Here in Fort George the same
hen fruit would sell for $3.00 for
twelve, and the demand, at this price
is lurge.
Tbe first electric lights to shine in
the Fort George district were turned
on in the Herald office this week.
The plant was installed by 11. B.

winter, and splendid results have
been chieved. The company has now
GUO.000 feet of well seasoned lumber
in the local yards here.
Running a sawmill here in the winter is a difficult proposition. The
logs are frozen and as hard as iron,
the circular saws contract with the
cold until the teeth drop out., and
the machinery is brlttlcd by the intense low temperature.
.Mr. Peden's genius as a mill man
has overcome all difficulties, bow-
ever, and when the crank shaft of
the engine broke the other day and
mutilated tbe castings, a charcoal
tire was made and the whole engine
pinned and mended together. This
was thought to be an impossible undertaking by machinery men on the
coast and a new engine, weighing 4,-
100 lbs. was shipped in by express
from Ashcroft.

INFLUX OF SETTLERS.
According to a statement made by
E. II. McKay, provincial surveyor -
general, a large influx of settlers to
this province is expected this year.
The sum of $460,000 will be expended by the provincial government in
making surveys on the various large
reserves. This amount exceeds last
year's appropriation by $150,000.
These newly established reserves embrace millions of acres. Bona Ude
settlers have the privilege of taking
up homesteads within these reserves
after the government has made selections of lauds for university purposes.
