PRINCE GEORGE. BRITISH COLUMBIA,  FRIDAY, JULY 16. 1915.

TO
HAVE DEPOT SITE SETTLED
Mass Meeting Called for Last Evening Postponed Until
Monday Night—Misleading Reports Circulated
by Parties Opposed to City's Interests.
Special Order-in-
Council Releases
Mike Becovitch.
Despite the heavy downpour
several hundred people were in
attendance at the advertised mass
meeting in the Ritts-Kifer Hall
last evening.' It was without
doubt the most representative
gathering of citizens in the history of Prince George. Mr. P. E.
Wilson had been announced as
chairman of the meeting, the object of which was to get some
definite action in regard to the
final settlement of the depot
location here.
A short time before the gathering of citizens a report was
circulated that telegrams had
been received from Ottawa conveying the information that the
Exchequer Court of Canada had
ordered the immediate construction of the station at Oak and
Ash streets, under penalty of a
jail sentence to the railway officials for non-compliance with the
order. Mr. Johnson, of Central
Fort George, one of the recipients of the telegrams, gave the
Herald the following copy of the
message received by him and
signed by R. Pringle, counsel for
the Fort George interests.
"Commission order station
Oak and Ash streets been
made order Exeheq uer'Court.
If officials do not obey immediately, application made
jail sentence."
Mr. Wilson, as chairman of the
mass meeting Informed the audience of the messages received,
suggesting that in view of the
reported action of the Court it
would be inadvisable for the
meeting to take any steps in the
matter. He advised the postponement of the meeting until
Monday evening.
Meantime local business men
got busy on the wires to ascertain from Ottawa the truth in the
matter. This afternoon several
messages were received in the
city and all, without exception,
brought the news that no antion
whatever had been taken in the
station site matter along the lines
declared in the alleged message
from Mr. Pringle. Late this afternoon the Herald received the
following reply to an inquiry sent
an Ottawa correspondent:
"No action taken by Exchequer Court along lines
you report. Officials here
know nothing of any recent
action."
A local contemporary publishes
a dispatch from an Ottawa source
to the effect that the mayor had
asked that the former order of
the railway commission, for the
station at Oak and Ash streets,
be carried out.
Whether Mr. Gillett, the citizen, or Mayor Gillett, the city
official, made this request is a
question that the people would
like answered. It is a matter of
local history that the Council,
against strong opposition from
the mayor, passed a resolution
asking for the erection of the
depot on George street.
The city today is practically
unanimpus for the George street
location, realizing that to upset
the plans of the railway company
in their arrangements for yards,
roundhouses, etc., would retard
the city's progress for years to
come.
The mats meeting on Monday
evening promises to surpass even
last night's gathering in point of
attendance and public interest.
Farmers ot Nechaco Vallty
An Enjoying Protperity.
Mr. A. R. Steacy, manager ot
the Kennedy Blair stores, returned today from a business trip to
Vanderhoof, In common with all
who visit the Nechaco Valley
metropolis Mr, Steacy remarks
upon the rapid growth and development of the town. The centre
of a rich farming community and
the gateway to the Omineca and
Stuart districts Vanderhoof
promises to become a point of
considerable importance in New
British Columbia. Mr. Steacy
states that crops will be enormous in that district this season.
Farmers are enjoying prosperous
times and are raising considerable live stock, for which they
obtain good prices.
Attached to this morning's
eastbound train was a car of 66
Montenegrin and Servian recruits
who are en-route to the training
camp at Three Rivers, Quebec.
The entire party came from
Prince Rupert.
Ihey were joined here by a
local Montenegrin named Mike
Becovitch. Mike was in many
ways a good citizen but had recently kicked up a little rumpus
and had run foul of the provincial police. As a result he was
serving a two-month's term as a
guest of Chief Dunwoody. A
true patriot and a husky stalwart
Mike learned of the recruiting of his fellow-countrymen
and implored the local authorities
to allow him his freedom that he
might enlist with the Allies.
Magistrate Heme took the matter
up by wire with the attorney-
general and as a result a special
order-in-council arrived yesterday giving Mike his release. He
was enthusiastically acclaimed
by his fellow recruits this morning, and the police boys gave
Mike a joyous send-off.

Montenegrins Rally
To Call To Arms.
SECOND PARTY OF VOLUNTEERS
LEFT FOR TRAINING TUESDAY.
Rallying to the call to arms
issued by their government,
Montenegrins from the north and
■outh, from Ala.ka and the
Yukon and Northern British
Columbia, from as far south as
Arizona, are heading for Vancouver enroute to the concentration base established at Three
Rivers.
No trouble Is expected in bringing the Montenegrins from the
United States. It is pointed out
that the men are not enlisted
afresh, as every male native of
Montenegro automatically be.
comes a soldier on attaining fighting age, 16, and remains a reservist until he is too old for
military purposes. When Montenegro is at war, every Montenegrin is at war. A different
system is followed to that with
other nations. A large proportion of the men who are responding to the call to arms have been
residents of the United States
for eight and ten years, but their
love for the land of their birth is
stili as keen as ever and they are
giving up good jobs to go Lecause
they know they are needed.
.here are now several hundred
Montenegrins in Vancouver and
on their way there. Transportation arrangements are being
made to send them east to the
mobilization camp.
The second party of volunteers
left for Vernon on Tuesday's
train. They were given an enthusiastic send-off by the citizen's
hundreds of people crowding the
station platform to wish them
God-speed, good-luck, and a safe
return. Those in the party were :
W. J. Service, A. Stewart, D. C.
Phillips. Wm. Waldie, C. K. Mackenzie, J. B. Stevenson, C. Price,
Jno. Buchanan, S. W. Turner,
A. W. Nicholson, E. Comeault,
E. H. Smith, R. E. Crowell.
Clayton C. Buell, A. Baxter,
J. Struthers, W. Brown, A. H.
Seys, J. H. McKinnon, C. McLaughlin, T. E. Kempson, H. E.
Trelevan, M. Miller, A. Matthew,
J. Dunn, '1. Booker, and J. K.
Lodge.
Farewell Service.
Last Sunday evbning a patriotic
and farewell service was held in
the Rex Theatre under the auspices of the combined churches
of the city, Mayor Gillett was
in the chair, and opened the
meeting with a speech in which
he paid a glowing tribute to the
patriotism of the boys of Prince
George and surrounding district.
He hoped to see them all return
to the land of their adoption.
Reverends Justice, Morrison,
and Wright, took part in the
service. Mr. Justice in the invocation and Mr. Wright reading
several passages from the Scriptures. In a spirited address to
the departing recruits and having
in mind those who had departed
the week previous, Mr. Morrison
traced the history of the various
nations opposed to the Allies.
The Allies were engage.l in a
holy war, the speaker said.
A solo by Mrs. Reed and hearty
singing by the congregation, led
by Kerr's orchestra was an enjoyable part of the programme.
A collection of 825 was donated
to the Canadian Patriotic Fund.
Vancouver, July 14.—In order
to "do his bit" for King and
country, Jas. D, Boyd, one of the
most prominent ranchers of the
Cariboo road, whose home at the
70-mile station is known to all
travelers by this highway for its
hospitality, has joined the forces
as a transport driver. He was
accepted Saturday afternoon, and
left for Victoria to go into training.
Mr. Boyd was born in the Cariboo, and has grown up in the
saddle and is an expert with the
rifle and has nerve, When the
posse left Clinton about three
years ago to round up Spintlam
and Paul, the Indian murderers
of a prospector named White,
and Constable Kindness was
killed, Boyd formed ore of the
band of specials. When Kindness
was shot from his horse, Forrest
Loring of Ashcroft, had his right
arm broken and lost his carbine.
The rest of the posse went to
cover, but Boyd and Loring
charged the Siwashes, Loring
using his six-shooter with his
left hand, and Boyd pumping his
30-30 as fast as he could. Had
Boyd been shooting at a deer,
Spintlam would never have lived
to be hanged, but he had never
shot at a man before, and the
bullets went ahead of his quarry.
Spintlam died on the gallows,
Paul is spending his life in the
penitentiary, and Boyd is going
back to practice up in the art ot
shooting Hum However with
his technical knowledge of transport work he has figured tbat
he can do {lie most good in tbe
transport service.
LEASES RAILROAD
FOR 999 YEARS,
The lease of the Grand Trunk
Pacific properties at the head of
the lakes, including the Superior
Junction section of and the terminal and elevator facilities, has
been signed, and the government
has now full control for a period
of 999 years of the property. It
is stated that the consideration
is $600,000 per year, thia being
on the basis of four-and-a-half
per cent, upon the cost of the
property. The government has
now control of the National
Transcontinental for operating
purposes from Winnipeg to Monc-
ton.
Barkerville Country Shows
Remarkable Mining Activity.
Claims That Have Been Uuproductive For Many Years
Now Paying Properties-Rich Clean-up
From One Crevice.
In a recent clean-up on Lowhee
Creek, Barkerville district, $35,-
000 in placer gold was taken from
one crevice. Lowhee was one of
the rich creeks of the Cariboo
district and was .drifted out in
bedrock during the early days,
For many years past it has been
an abandoned creek.
A few years ago it was purchased by the Hopp syndicate of
Seattle for $7,000 and has since
been equipped with a large hydraulic plant. It is now one of
the largest dividend paying properties in northern B. C. The
gold is all coarse, and it is nothing uncommon to find nuggets
worth from 8300 to 8600. These
nuggets are of a brilliant color
and is the most suitable gold
used in making up jewelry such
as chains, tie-pins, etc. The
Hopp company has a standing
contract to supply Henry Birks,
the largest jewelry firm in Canada, with nuggets at 820 per
ounce, which is over a dollar
more than the actual value of the
gold.
On Williams and Antler Creeks
although much richer ground, the
gold was of a rusty and paler
color, containing more foreign
matter and worth about a dollar
an ounce less.
Those who have recently returned from the Barkerville
country say that hard times are
not in evidence there. New
properties are being opened up,
and prospectors and miners are
making good wages. The advent
of the railway into Prince George
during the past two years has
had the effect of reducing the
cost of living, which in turn has
made paving properties of many
claims that have been idle for
many years.
Manitoba Conservatives have
chosen Sir James Aitken as their
leader. Resolutions favoring prohibition and woman suffrage have
been adopted.
Canada and Ypres
Always Linked.
"It was Sunday morning.
With Earl Grey I went down to
a corner of Salisbury Plain. We
entered an old Norman church.
There, standing under the tattered flags of bygone wars were
gathered together some of the
finest manhood of Canada. Together we all sang God Save the
King, and as the echoes of th..t
grand old anthem rang through
that ancient edifice, seeming as
it were to join together the Britons of past years with those
young men from overseas, I felt
a lump in my throat, and I am
not ashamed to say my eyes filled
with tears."
Thus with simple eloquence
Mr. Harry E. Brittain at the
Canadian Club luncheon given in
his honor, in Vancouver last
week, described the last of many
glimpses of the first Canadian
contingent he had had before
they left for the front—and
Ypres. Mr. Brittain will be remembered by many residents of
Prince (leorge. In 1910, in company with Premier McBride and
a number of English investors,
William Marconi.
An interesting event took place
on Tuesday afternoon when Alex.
Baxter, one of the departing recruits, was married to Miss
Blanche Winifred Lock, by Rev.
A. C. Justice. The young couple
are well known in the city having
resided here for upwards of a
year. The Herald joins in wishing the bride and groom a happy
reunion after the war is over,
and a long life in /heir adopted
city.
he spent a couple of days here.
Many will recall the excursion up
the Fraser to Willow River on
the steamer B. X. in which practically the entire local population
were guests of the visitors.
"Henceforth," continued the
speaker, "Ypres and Canada will
be linked together for all time in
burnished letters of gold."
After describing former pleasant experiences in British Columbia when the "mercury on the
barometer had risen beyond the
boosting point,!1 Mr, Brittain had
this to say in regard to the war:
"We've got them, and at the
end of the war we are going to
see a brace of eagles and of the
single and double-headed variety
and one turkey which will have
lost nearly all their feathers and
all their dignity."
After referring to the splendid
practical work being done by the
Royal Colonial Institute, including a practical land scheme which
would be ready at the end of the
war to place on the land, both in
the United Kingdom and in the
dominions across the seas, those
who desired it. Mr. Brittain con-
eluded, amid tremendous enthusiasm, as "Out of this furnace and
suffering a real, united empire
will be forged. Let it be forged
so that generations yet unborn
will look back upon this appalling
war and realize that for themselves, humanity and the world
this fight has not been fought in
vain."
THE MAYOR'S LITTLE VETO
GETS IN ACTION AGAIN.
William Marconi, inventor of wireless telegraphy, who has
been summoned to Italy to give aid to his country in the matter of
keeping communications in order.
The city council last Monday
evening1 unanimously endorsed
the sending of a telegram to railway commission at Ottawa, asking if the resolution of the council asking that the railway depot
be built at the foot of George,
Street had been received. This
was the result of a deputation of
about twenty business men,
headed by W. F. Cooke wailing
upon the council and asking that
such a course be taken.
Mayor Gillett was in a rather
belligerent mood, after Mr. Cooke
had made the request on behalf j
of the delegation, and wanted to
know on whose behalf Mr. Cooke
apoeared.
He was informed hy the spokesman that he represented 115
ratepayers of the city.
Mr. Gillett—Are you here on
behalf of the (1. T. P. ?
Mr. Cooke assured His Worship
that he was not. Further cross-
questioning by the mayor made
the spokesman of the delegation
appear as a criminal before the
bar of justice.
Finally the mayor allowed the
question to go before the alder
men when it was unanimously
passed.
His Worship immediately gave
a notice of veto, and the disgusted delegation left the hall.
Later on the matter was again
brought up by Aid. Parks, whom
the mayor declared out of order.
City Solicitor Wilson informed
the mayor that the resolution
was in effect until it had actually
been vetoed, and then ensued
a wordy battle in which His
Worship cast dignity to the winds,
A curtain may be drawn here.
It is sufficient to say that the
mayor withdrew his "veto" and
allowed the city clerk to forward
the telegram.
An extraordinary cloudburst took
place at Ashcroft last week. In a
short time the dry gulches became
i aging torrents, and the C. P. R. track
was covered in about six places w.thin
the radius of a mile with mud and
gravel, in some places about eight f.tt
deep. At one spot the bank was broken away for fifty yards, pespendicular
with the outside of the rails. Large
bodies of men were rushed from ea t
and west, and by morning the track
was cleared, ana temporary supports
placed where the greatest damage
was done. During the storm hail fell
so heavily that in spots it lay fnr
hours, and the children were snowballing with it. Several homes near
the traik were flooded. \

PRO-HAMILTON.
In a weak and labored attempt
to justify the mayor's action in
the city hall scandal, the Fourth
avenue journal refers to this
paper as "a very-much pro-Hamilton weekly," evidently having
in mind the Herald's support of
Mr. A. G. Hamilton, the Conservative candidate for the new provincial riding of Port George.
Just why Mr. Hamilton's name
should be introduced into the
subject is hard to conceive;
nevertheless the Herald hastens
to assure the junior journal that
this paper is decidedlv pro-
Hamilton and considers itself
highly honored in being numbered among the friends and supporters of that staunch old Britisher, Alexander G. Hamilton,
who, from early boyhood to middle a^e fought the battles of the
British Empire in different parts
of 'he globe. Mr. Hamilton is a
veteran of the Egyptian campaign from which he emerged
with honors. An honored andj
picturesque character for forty
years on the frontier of western
Canada, twenty years of which
he served with that world-famous body, the Northwest Mounted Police, Mr. Hamilton served
with the forces of General Middleton through the hardships of
the Riel Rebellion. Many old-
timers on the plains today will
recall with pride their associations with Alex. Hamilton, of the
Mounted.
As a man of honor and integrity and a true Britisher Mr.
Hamilton needs no recommenda-
lhat he might justify his own
lack of acumen, foresight and
business ability. He has been
recreant to the trust given him
by the people; his policy on every
Dublic question of benefit to the
city as a whole has been one of
procrastination—when it offered
no pecuniary benefit to him and
his associates. His bulldozing
manner as chairman of the alder-
manic board is an insult to self-
respecting citizenship. Gillett's
contemptuous disregard of the
wishes of the people on the depot location is unparalleled in
municipal history.
Defending the mayor's action
in renting a house of evil repute;
as a temporary city hall and adding to the city payroll the name
of an underworld landlady, thej
Fourth avenue journal reters to
other buildings offered the city :
for temporary quarters as "low
dives which try to hide their filth!
underneath a cloak of legitimate
business." The fact are these :
A respected citizen, Mr. Director,!
owns one of these buildings and
with his wife and family of little
children occupied the premises
until a week ago. when they left
to take up residence on a preemption. The other place has
been vacant for some t|me and
has never harbored questionable
characters, which police records
will bear out. A gross injustice
has been done these people and
the only decent course open to
the junior journal is to publish
an abject apology.
Getting down to brass tacks
the only objections this paper has
to record against the temporary
city hall selection are: (1) The
building is too far from the business centre; (2) better and more
suitable premises, owned by deserving citizens, could have been
obtained; and (3) we resent the
tion from us. and we, in common I insult to public decency in put-
with hundreds of admirers and I ting the landlady of a sporting j
friends throughout the west are ; house on the city's payroll.  Out
side of the above objections the'
Herald concurs in Mayor Gillett's;
selection.

conditions for the upholding of
the honor of Canada and the flag
against the forces of Prussian ism
and oppression,
Tne Herald is decidedly pro-
Hamilton.
Mr. Turner, a stranger here, we
wish to state that he had no previous knowledge of that body's
record.
In championing the interests
of the underworld habitues the
Fourth avenue journal has found
its level, Since its illegitimate
birth two months ago, its publishers have gone about hat in
hand seeking someone to furnish
the sustenance necessary for its
livelihood. It has coaxed, threat
ened and cajoled the business
men for support. With its editorial columns for sale to anyone
with the price of a two-inch ad.,
the public has marveled at the
rapid changes of front executed
by the junior journal. On more
than one occasion Gillett has been
called upon to cuff the obstreperous orphan into submission. With
Denmark Has Granted
Suffrage to Women.
The Danish parliament last
month, on the anniversary of the
signing of the first constitution
by Frederick VII in 1849, unanimously passed the new constitution which confers the suffrage
on women and abolishes the
special electoral privileges heretofore exercised by the wealthier
classes. The king signed the
constitution in the afternoon. A
large number of women, composed of all classes, marched to the
palace, where King Christian received a.deputation, which in bell ill'of the women of Denmark
thanked him for their political
emancipation. A deputation of
women also went to the parlia-
An important railway announcement is made today. The Dominion
is to have a new service between eastern and western Canada.
Fast passenger service is to be
inaugurated on July 13 between Toronto and Winnipeg over the Canadian government railway (the Transcontinental), the Grand Trunk System, and the Temiskaming and North-
Jem Ontario Railway.
These three railways are combining
[ to make this new service of a supe-
j rior class in every respect. "The
National" is the appropriate name
! which has been chosen for the principal train on both its east and west
bound journeys.
This train will leave Toronto each
Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, and
Winnipeg on each Sunday, Tuesday
and Thursday, its equipment consisting of colonist sleeping cars, electric
lighted first-class coaches, tourist
and standard sleeping cars and dining car, which will be operated
through without change.
The mileage by this new route be
tween Toronto and Winnipeg is 1257
miles, and "The National' will make
a fast run, covering the distance in
forty-two hours. Westbound passengers leave Toronto nt 10:45 p.m., and
travelling over the Grand Trunk lines
are at North Bay at 7 o'clock next
morning. A splendid daylight run
is then made over the Temiskaming
and Northern Ontario Railway,
through the scenic beauties of Tima-
gami and the interesting Cobalt district,
Cochrane is reached at 4:25 p.m.,
and "The National" there begins its
journey over the main line of Canada's Transcontinental with its solid
roadbed, little curvature and no
noticeable gradients, all contributing
to the greatest degree of comfort by
day or night. It traverses a country
of wonderful possibilities in which
tens of thousands of settlers will
carve out their homes in the
future.
The region between Cochrane and
Winnipeg is one possessing great attractions for the sportsman as well
as the settler, for here are situated
some of the finest fishing waters on
the continent, while big gams abounds
in the forests. Thero is an ever-changing panorama of boauty, Groat'rivers
flowing north and south, have their
source in this height of land country,
and here the Indian, unspoiled by
civilization, still makes his home. It
is indeed virgin territory, for its natural loveliness has not yet been
marred by fire or the lumberman.
Before entering the province of
Manitoba the train runs through the
famous Nibigaml (country of lakes)
region, another of Canada's magnificent holiday resorts, reaching Winnipeg at 3:50 p. m.
Eastbound "The National" leaves
Winnipeg at 5:15 p.m., Cochrane at
0:15 p. m. next day, and Toronto 18
hours later—arrival in the Queen City
being timed at 12:05 noon.
At Winnipeg the Grand Trunk Pacific lines afford splendid connections
for all important points in western
Canada, the Pacific coast, California,
etc., and also furnish a new short
route to Alaska and the Yukon, traversing the Canadian Rockies and
other marvels of scenic interest.
The opening of this new route
makes an epoch in the history of Canada as the new service will provide
for fast through travel from Halifax
to Prince Rupert, Vancouver, Victoria and other Pacific coast cities via
an all-Canadian route, the Canadian
government railways (Intercolonial
Railway) in the east connecting with
the Grand Trunk Railway System in
a union station (Bonaventure), Montreal, thence Temiskaming and Northern Ontario, Transcontinental Railway and Grand Trunk Pacific Railway
connecting in the union station at
Winnipeg, forms a continuous band
of steel from ocean to ocean.
Publications pertaining to this
new route with ocean to ocean map
may be procured from all principal
ticket agents and passenger representatives of the Canadian Government
Railways and Grand Trunk System.

/ess Scheme ?
San Francisco, July 13th.—A
special dispatch to the Chronicle
from New York says:
"Germany plans to carry her
submarine warfare into American
waters, according to a reserve
officer of the German navy, who
is understood to be cognizant of
the intentions of Admiral Von
Tirpitz, chief of staff of the German admiralty.
The plan as outlined provides
for the establishment of a submarine base off the eastern Canadian coast, the purpose being
for submarines to sink vessels
leaving Halifax and Quebec for
British ports.
The Germans feel sure that the
scheme can be carried out without question arising as to the
legality of the proceeding or the
violation of the Monroe Doctrine.
In well-informed (lerman circles
rumors of an important submarine campaign against contraband
laden ships have been rife.
It has been generally known
that Von Tirpitz has bent all his
energies to attempting to devise
methods by which his undersea
fleet can prevent the great quantities of munitions shipped from
Canada to the British Isles reaching their destination.   It is ad-

in (No. 10) on "Cutworms and
their Control," prepared by Mr.
Arthur Gibson, chief assistant
entomologist, In the introduction it is stated that cutworms
as a class rank in importance
with such well-known pests as
the San Jose scale, the codling
moth and the Hessian fly, all of
which are among our most destructive insect enemies. There
are certainly few insects which,
year after year, inflict such widespread damage as the various
caterpillars known commonly as
cutworms. The annual loss occasioned by these insects in Canada amounts to hundreds of
thousands of dollars. In the
bulletin the methods of controlling cutworms are discussed fully. Under "Preventive Measures" the value of clean cultivation is referred to as the placing
of bands of tin or paper around
plants which are set out. "Remedial Measures" include descriptions of various poisoned baits to
destroy the cutworms, directions
for the making of proper furrows
or ditches to prevent the advance

Attacks Again Repulsed

"To the southeast of St. Mihiel the
enemy after a bombardment of great
violence took the offensive last night
along a front stretching from the Mil
which commands the right bank of
the river Meuse to the south of Ailly
as far as the locality known as the
Cow's Head (La Tete A Vache) in the
forest of Apremont. At one single
point in the Vauxfery region they
were successful in penetrating our
first line along a front of about 700
yards. At all other points they were
repulsed with heavy losses.
"In the eastern part of the LePetrc
forest we checked a fresh German attack which was preceded by the
throwing of flaming liquids. "There is
nothing to report from the rest of the
front."

"Grand Duke Nicholas has got the
enemy into the same positions strategically as he occupied last August,"
says the correspondent, "but with this
difference—then the enemy had all
the advantage of position, while today the enemy is in a desert ravaged
by leven months of warfare.
"The task cf feeding and munitioning three million men 200 miles from
their base must appall the Germans,
yet a pause or backward step spells
ruin. Matters look promising for the
Russians."
The latest fighting north of Arras,

Several shells were found to contain

New York, July 14.—Holland is relying on the United States to firmly
establish the rights of neutral nations in war, according to the Rev. T.
Vandyke, who for six months acted
as secretary to his father, Dr. Henry
Vandyke, American minister to Holland and Luxemburg. In his first pub-
lice address since his return from
Holland, delivered here last night, the
Rev. Mr. Vandyke said that the Dutch
government is in accord with President Wilsons policy as outlined in the
American notes to Germany.
"Holland is still apprehensive," he
said. "She is ready for any eventuality. Her army, mobilized at full
war strength, is, I believe, a factor
to be reckoned with. I do not think
that 350,000 is too high an estimate
for the number of men the kingdom
can mobilize.
"In her firm attitude of neutrality
Holland resembles the United States.
The Dutch adopted neutrality of their
own accord and are ready to defend
it. I think they would light no matter who violated their neutrality. Holland knows that, geographically, It ls
in a perilous position. Dutch shipping
ls suffering from two causes. German submarines sink their ships and
British patrol boats delay them."
L. C. Pearson, Grand Trunk

our men was wounded by a grama-. . ,
phone needle supposed to hav. Uen!»nce with their plans for yards,
loaded in a shrapnel shell, roundhouses, etc.   Mayor Gillett,
contrary to his pre-election promises, refused to give official sanction to the resolution, affixing an
illegal veto thereto. This hung
the matter up for nearly thirty
days: meanwhile the railway
company had declared themselves
ready to go ahead with the work
provided the railway commission
was in accord with the council's
resolution. All later attempts to
have the mayor get on the track
of progress have failed, and the
city today is in the unenviable
position of being made the victim in a sectional fight that
if not soon discontinued promises
to retard development for years
to come.
Prince George is unfortunate
in having a mayor utterly lacking in the progressive spirit. In
his endeavor to defeat ths wish
of the people in tht depot location he is putting his personal
interests ahead of tht public
welfare,
But every cloud bat a silver
lining, and it is encouraging to
note that the people of Prince
George have awakened to tht
fact that if anything is be done
to remedy the deadlock brought
about by the mayor's obstructive
policy they must take matters in
their own hands.
A city must either progress or
go backward. If Mayor Gillett
persists in his policy of obstruction we think the aroused public
sentiment will carry things along
regardless of any further blocking on his part. That is the particular bright spot in the city's
outlook. It is now up to us all to
stand behind the progressive aldermen and boost for Prince
George. Eventually we will build
up a city of which we may well
be proud.
