Bringing more than half-a-ton
of choice raw furs for the Hudson's Bay Company, (ius Montan
an old-timer in this district, arrived on Monday last from Fort
Grahame. Travelling hy canoe
over the Giscombe - Summit Lake
route, Gus made the trip out in
16 days. He reports considerable
travel over the all-water route to
Peace River and many prospective settlers are now on the way
in to spy out the land.
Mr. Montan stated that probably fifty settlers are washing
gold on the bars of the Findlay
River and its tributaries, and all
are making good wages despite
the high cost of living in that
region. Flour is worth 824 per
hundred, and all other recessities
are proportunately high priced.
Settlers have planted small
areas in vegetables, grain, etc.,
and these show wonderful growth
and promise big yields, The
potato crop looks especially promising and no frost since April
has been evident. Potatoes were
planted early in May and are
well advanced,
Mr. Montan is highly pleased
with the Findlay country and expects to start on his return trip
in a few days.

The members of the two commissions are men of the highest
integrity in whom the citizens

Lake Route to
Eastern Canada
On June 19th the Grand Trunk
Pacific Lake route between western and Eastern Canada was
opened for the summer season.
This route has been one of the
most popular features of Grand
Trunk Pacific service, and deservedly so. Trains with the finest
equipment run over smooth-riding track and operate at convenient hours to give close connection with the finest steamships in
the Lake service. The steamship
"Noronic," placed in service last
year for the first time, is unquestionably the largest, finest and
safest passenger steamership on
the upper lakes.
The first train eastbound left
Winnipeg 10.30 p.m. Saturday,
June 19th, to connect with S.S.
"Hamonic" sailing from Fort
William Sunday, June 20. Westbound a day train will be operated thisjyear, leaving Fort.William
on arrival of Northern Navigation steamships. First train will
leave Fort William at 7.30 a.m.
June 21st, with passengers from
S.S. "Noronic," arriving Winnipeg 10.30 p.m. 3ame evening.
Parties planning their summer
vacation trips to Eastern Canada
or the New England States will
add comfort and pleasure to their
holidays by travelling this route.
In addition to the above they
have the privilege of returning
home via diverse routes.
Potato Cultivation.
Everybody may think he or she
knows the potato, but a perusal
of Pamphlet No. 2, issued by the
Publications Branch, Department
of Agricultural, Ottawa, upon the
solanum tuberosum, will convince
the same he or she that there is
much to learn. A reprint from
the Agricultural Gazette, official
mouthpiece of the department,
the pamphlet is a collection of
articles of superlative worth.
Introduced by a brief historical
statement showing the place the
potato occupies in the world's
domestic economy, and especially
that of Canada, hy which it would
appear that the crop is worth to
this country upwards of $41,500,-
OOo a year, we are presented with
a complete exposition of the cultivation of the tuber by Mr. W.
T. Macoun, Dominion Horticulturist. Mr. H. T. Gussow, Dominion Botanist, explains, first,
the diseases to which the potato
is subject and how they can be
controlled, and next, the results
of inspection under the ' 'Destructive Insect and Pest Act." Essays telling the story of potato
production in each of the provinces by ten of the leading
authorities of C a n a d a, give
weight and importance and the
highest expert countenance to
the reprint, which is made complete by telling how potato-
growing contests are conducted
in Manitoba and by a table of the
world's production for three
years. This table shows Ger-
many to be the greatest potato-
producing country and also, that
excepting in Canada and the
United States, the production is
everywhere on the decline.
In a proclamation bearing the
seal of Lieutenant-Governor Barnard, under date of June 17th,
and which comes into effect today, the name, "City of Fort
Georg" given under the incorporation act, is changed to "City of
Prince George." A vote on the
choice of names taken at the first
municipal election last month
was almost unanimously in favor
of the new name, only thirteen
voters being in favor of the name
"Fort George."
The proclamation, deleting the
preamble, reads as follows:
Whereas the municipal electors of
the City of Fort George who are entitled to vote on bylaws for borrowing
money on the credit of the municipality
are in favor of changing the name of
the municipality to ''City of Prince
George." as appears by a report of the
Returning Officer at the first municipal
election held in thc said municipality on
the 20th day of May, 1915:
Now know ye that by virtue of the
authority contained in section 12 of the
"Fort George Incorporation Act," we
do hereby order and proclaim that on,
from, and after the publication of this
Proclamation in two consecutive issues
of the British Columbia Gazette, thc
municipality incorporated under the
name "City of Fort George," by chapter 29 of the "Statutes of British Columbia 1915," shall be known by the
name "City of Prince George.''
Farmers'Institute. PROMISES TO BE A WINNER
Antler Creek Gold Strike.
The recent gold strike at Antler Creek in the Barkerville country, is fulfilling all expectations,
according to arrivals from the
old Cariboo town this week. It
is stated that values running
8100 to the pan have been taken
out in the last few days. Lest a
stampede be started to that district the Herald might state that
all the promising ground is held
under lease.
Permission Given by Provincial
Minister of Finance and Agriculture — Meeting on
July 8th.
A notice in the B. C. (iazette
of June 17th, authorizes the
organization of a Farmers' Institute in the district of FortGeorge
on the petition of William Bell
and others.
ln accordance with the provisions of the Act the first meeting
for the purpose of organization
shall be held at 8 p.m., on Thursday, July 8th, at the Board of
Trade Hall, Fort (leorge.
Fish are Biting Well
East and West of City.
The magnificent lakes east and
west of the city abound in fish of
many kinds and are luring many
citizens on week-end trips. Last
Sunday, nearly twenty went to
Eagle Lake, east of here, returning in the evening with good
catches. Among the many fishing points west of the city, the
Bednesti Lake region has won
the greatest support from local
disciples of Izaak Walton, The
trip can be made by train or by
wagon road, and there is a good
stopping place near by which
caters to the wants of fishermen,
One sportsman told the Herald
this week that out at Bednesti
it was often necessary to hide
behind a tree in order to bait a
hook. Certainly some fine catches
have been made there.
The sports committee of the
Dominion Day celebration report
good progress in the work of arrangements for a gala day, Last
evening a meeting was hold at
the offices of the Norlh Coast
Land Co., when more than §400
in prizes was allotted in the different events.
In all probability the sports
will be held on the grounds east
of George Street, near Fourth
Avenue. The Duchess Park
grounds are still in a rough condition, and it will hardly be possible to have them in shape for
the first. Seating accommodation will be provided on the 4th
Avenue site, and possibly the old
grandstand at South Fort George
will be moved over. A committee
of carpenters, who volunteered
their services free of cost, are
today taking up the question of
seating accommodation, and will
arrive at a solution of the problem today.
In the absence of Mayor Gillett

Recommendation of City Council
for Depot at Foot of George Street
Is Sent to Railway Commissioners
Last Monday evening's meeting of the city council was remarkable for the amount of bus-
ness transacted. The tedium of
routine which has characterized
many of the gatherings of the
council was absent and many
matters of importance were cleared up.
Perhaps the most important
action of the evening was the
ordering of the city clerk to forward "forthwith" to the Railway
Commission and to the officials
of the Grand Trunk Pacific a copy
of the resolution of the council
passed June 1st, requesting the
immediate construction of a railway station at the foot of George

then called for a re-consideration

In the absence of Mayor Gillett, Aid. Ruggies was in the
mayoral chair.
Other business transacted was
the reading of a petition signed
by 26 business men asking for
an early closing bylaw. Such a
bylaw will probably be brought
down at an early date.
Considerable discussion took
place on the question of building
a temporary city hall, Several
communications were read from
men who offered to rent the city
temporary premises. A committee composed of Acting Mayor

Some workmen were engaged
in blasting the beaver dam on

water has lowered considerably
but the fishing is still good. Parties of enthusiastic fisher-folk of
both sexes are on the job daily.
Mr. and Mrs. Waldoff and family paid a visit to the Robbins
ranch, Chief Lake- Road, on Sunday last. Mr. Robbins is doing
considerable work on his place,
and is having an additional ten
acres prepared this year.
Frank Crewe, an old-timer here
who has a pre-emption on the
Salmon, returned last week from
a visit to his old home in Eng-
and. He states that everyone
in the old land is wearing khaki
and that the young man who is
not a soldier is asked many times
a day wdiy he has not enlisted.
The successful prosecution of the
war has seized all classes, and
thousands are enlisting daily for
service at home and abroad. As
a result of the warlike feeling he
became imbued with over there,
Frank is leaving at once for Calgary where he hopes to enlist for
the battle front. He returned to
Canada before enlisting because
of the better pay received by the
soldiers from here and also to
settle up some business affairs
here. He owns a dozen lots in
Prince George besides having
some valuable property in the

Liberal Candidate
Will Not Drop Out,
A report was current early this
week that Mr. C, A. Gaskill,
Liberal candidate for tho Legislature, had decided to drop out
of the race. Interviewed by the
Herald, Mr. Gaskill characterized
the report as a deliberate falsehood, the origin of which he attributed to his political opponents.
"You can say for me," said the
Liberal candidate, "that 1 am in
this contest to a finish,
"There is no possibility nor

The public schools of the city
closed for summer vacation yesterday at noon. In the afternoon
pupils, teachers, parents and
trustees gathered at "the island"
tor a picnic. Judging from reports of the kiddies it was the
biggest time in the country's history. There were games, foot
races, ail sorts of competitions
with prizes attached, ice cream,
oranges, and the most gorgeous
spread of eatables that ever preceded a colicky and troublous
night. Not a fistic encounter was
staged among the young hopefuls, while the girls of the school
were as dainty and immaculate
as dream angels,
The grownups had just as much
fun as the kids, and Chairman
Wilson, of the board of trustees,
was the busiest and happiest man
in four counties.
The success of the picnic was
largely due to the enthusiastic
labors of the trustees, Messrs.
Leathley, Mahon and Wilson, aided by the teachers and parents,

In reference to the rate of interest
Mr. McKenna said the government
had to face the situation of today,
and there were two great facts which
could not be ignored. The old war
loan at present netted the investors
4 Vt per cent., and this loan now stood
at a discount.
"Wc require many hundreds of

Krupp Factories Build
Longer Range Artillery.
Copenhagen, June 22.—A Danish
student of economics, who has just
returned from a visit to thc Krupp
workmen's cottages al Essen, says
that since the war began thc number
of workrs at the great factories has
been increased from 70,000 to 115,000.
In the opinion of the employees,
the production of 42-ccntimctre guns
is only a prelude to thc manufacture
of heavy guns of Immense range, and
in this respect, he says, great surprises may, at no very distant date,
be expected.
Work at present is practically concentrated on thc manufacture of long
range artillery.

whieh is believed to have contributed
largely to the weakening of their resistance.
The Austro-German armies pushed
forward eastward through Galicia, recapturing Przemyls June 3, and then,
without pause struck at Lemberg
from thc south and west. At no
point were the Russians able to withstand the terrific bombardment directed against their positions, and
even the lines of defence near Grodek,
sixteen miles west of Lemberg, which
is of great natural strength, proved to
he untenable.
With Lemberg now in their hands
Austria has reclaimed virtually the
whole province of .Galicia. The fight
ing in this campaign has ben of unusual intensity, with heavy losses.
The figures of killed, wounded and
captured, as given in Austrian, German and Russian official statements,
run into the hundreds of thousands.
Russia had made plans for permanent
occupation of Galicia. bringing in officials to set up civil administi ation
in the territory as fast as it was taken. Lembeig was rechristened Lvov,
the old Russian-Polish name.
The city has a population of about
200,000 and was an important Austrian military station. Although
founded in the thirteenth century, it
is of modern appearance and is known
for its imposing buildings. The city
is protected by outlying forts, although its defences are much inferior
to those of Przemysl.

London, June 24.—The statement
from Austrian headquarters that
Lemberg had fallen before the advance of thc forces of Austria and
Germany was received in London
without surprise. It was known that
the Germanic allies were within artillery range of the Galician capital
and capitulation was regarded as a
question only of days. Nothing has
been heard as yet from Petrograd,
but there is no disposition to doubt
the accuracy of Austria's claim.
Austria has now reclaimed most of
the province of Galicia occupied by
the Russians early in the war. The
fall of Lemberg had been expected
for several days and was admitted in
Petrograd to be imminent. The Russians are reported to have withdrawn
most of their forces and supplies from
the city, which was threatened with
envelopment by the Austro-German
armies advancing from the north and
South of Lemberg, in the Dneister
region, a strip of Austrian territory'
is still in the hands of the Russians.
An official statement from Petrograd
reports an important victory after a
battle along the river which lasted
several days. At Rawa Ruska, thirty-
two miles northwest of Lemberg, and
near the Bukowina border, other Russian successes are claimed.
Lemberg, capital of Galicia, was
occupied by the Russians on September 2, 1914, about one month after
the outbreak of hostilities, in the
course of the early Russian drive into
Austria, lt has therefore been in
Russian control for over ten months.
For thep ast twenty days, since the
Austro-Germans took Przemysl from
thc forces of Emperor Nicholas, it has
been the objective of a series of fierce
and concentrated attacks on the part
of the Teutonic allies. Their success
may have a far-reaching political effect, as the driving out of the Russians from Galicia is counted upon in
Berlin to help maintain thc status quo
in the Balkans ^^^^^^^^^^
The capture of Lemberg was one of
the earliest important successes of the
Russians. Following it they pushed
onward rapidly through Galicia, The
high water mark of the invasion found
almost all the province in their hunds.
They approached within striking dis-
tnee of Cracow, at thcf- western end
