London.-Petrograd correspondent of the Times says
Russians are inflicting heavy blows on Austro-German

being captured. The invaders defeat is assuming colossal
proportions which will undoubtedly be decisive.

that Russian detachment has passed over Carpathians and
occupied region of Hungarian Zemplien.
Petrograd.—Official communication.—In battle of Lodz,
which continues to develop, advantage remains secured to
om. troops. On Austrian front, our action continues with

"Pure nickel is employed in
small amounts for a number of
purposes, because of its strength
and durability, and its white
color, which resists tarnishing,
"Though the importance of
. pure nickel is likely to grow, the
j chief use of the metal is in the
'production of alloy particularly
nickel steel, in which the greater
part of the nickel now refined is
employed. Steel containing 2 1-2
to 3 1-2 per cent, of nickel has
certain of its properties greatly
improved, so that for many purposes it is replacing ordinary
structural steel. Its value for
armor plate has long been known
and _ the rivalry _ of the great
maritime nations in the building
of Dreadnoughts is one of the
causes for the recent increased
demand for nickel.

Bridge Man Killed
Chas. Asbaldeston, employed
in the erection of the Grand

flat car Thursday on the bridge,
falling to the ground below and
striking on his head. He was
instantly killed. It is not clear
how the accident happened or
how Asbaldeston lost his hold on
the car.
The remains have been prepared for burial and are resting
in the Moose Lodge on Fifth

spreading the blaze to the neighboring structures.
Fire chief Campbell believes
both buildings could have been
saved but for the high wind prevailing and the unavoidable
delay in getting the fire apparatus to the fire. The distance had
to be covered through a heavy
pull of muddy roads as a result
of recent rains.
Harry Coutts of the City Garage
did splendid work in taking the
fire fighters and their hand extinguishers to the scene of the
blaze; and Henry Steinbach,
driver for P. Burns Co., as
quickly as possible was on the
scene with his horses and rushed
the engines to the fire. But the
wind had got in its work despite
the efforts of the men.
Considerable furniture was

and neglected.
No sane or reasonable person
after hearing the evidence adduced at the hearing on the 23rd,
could doubt but that the station
should be at George Street and
at no other place.
The weight of evidence is overwhelmingly in favor of this site,
and yet a location two thousand
feet further west was decided
upon. South Fort George was
completely ignored.
It was conclusively shown that
George Street is equally distant
from the centre of South £ "ort
George and Fort George, taking
all factors into consideration.
The residents and business
people of Prince George were
almost unanimously in favor of
the George Street location. The
Grand Trunk Pacific Railway
Company unequivocally placed
itself on record as to the advantages of this site from a railroad
standpoint over all other sites,
and yet, in spite of all this, the
Fort George people, the Hammond interests and a few outside
speculators who had invested
money in the westerly end of
the townsite were given the

The Sitting of the
Railway Commission
Monday, the 23rd inst. was the
day on which the Railway Commission held its sitting at Prince
George. The RitU-Kifer hall
was well filled with a goodly
number of the citizens of the
Georges, about 350 being present.
Promptly at 10 o'clock Assistant Chief Commissioner Scott
called the meeting to order, and
after stating the case as already
be a proportion of three to one.
The people of this town should
not lie down quietly and throw
up their hands. Why not get
the Conservative Association to
advise the Government, in no uncertain terms that votes will not
be given in its favor unless the
proper station facilities are afforded where we want them. Let
the true facts be published
broadcast  throughout  the   Do-
To the Herald:
The people demand to know
what action is to be taken to
overturn the decision of the
Railroad Commission of Monday,
so obsohitely opposite to the true
facts, It was openly reported on
the street before the hearing
that the Commission had made
up their minds before reaching
Prince George, and that they
had even stated to somebody
who knew that Oak Street was
their choice.
Commissioner Goodeve was reported as openly prejudiced
against South Fort George, and
that Commissioner Scott was but
the tool or mouth-piece that did
the work.
Why was not the whole Commission here? Especially Commissioner Drayton who has said
he never again would give a decision except on the ground,
after personal inspection and
hearing. Why was not Commissioner McLean present, the Com--
missioner who dared to voice his
protest against the former decision?
Finally, what are the Conservative Associations going to do
about it? Are they going to
stand by and take such impudence and rot, swallow it and
stroke the hand that smites
We demand that the Chambers
of Commerce and the Conservative Associations take the matter
up at once and tell the Government that unless they reverse
this ignominious decision, they
shall not again receive the suffrage of the people. Already
there are evidences of revolt, unmistakable, throughout the Province at the high handed methods
of the Government in Victoria
and in Ottawa.
Commissioner Drayton and his
whole Board, Minister of Agriculture Burrill, member of the
Cabinet from B. C, and finally
Premier Borden himself should
be flooded with public and private telegrams and letters of
protest; a hearing by all the
Commissioners, on the ground,
should be demanded, and this in
less than 90 days.
Bring the matter to the attention of ex-Premier Laurier, The
Liberals can carry this province,
this district, overwhelmingly for
decent government. It is time
to stop this farce of things and
let these traitors to their trust
know where we stand and that
wc will not put up with these
conditions any longer. The limit
has been reached.

The evidence produced was in

of South Fort George as a shipping centre; Mr. Wilson produced a newly taken census giving

every effort is being made to lessen the burden of the sufferers and to pay part of the enormous cost.
No greater contribution can be made than the supplying
of foodstuffs so necessary for the carrying on of a successful campaign. This brings to the front the question of
the wonderful possibilities of Canada's vast agricultural
lands. In Alberta a strong movement is on foot to encourage the settlement of open lands and the bringing
under cultivation of as great an area as possible. Turning
to our own province, and especially to the Fort George
district, we find awaiting the farmer ancl stock-raiser an
area of fertile, undeveloped country unequalled elsewhere
in Canada. A tremendous era of agricultural development is imminent, and the propounding of some feasible
theory for the dissemination of reliable information regarding the wealth of the local farm-lands is a matter
which might be profitably considered by the Boards of
trade ancl Chambers of Commerce of the Georges. For
five seasons this district has been producing the finest of
crops that could be wished for. It is pre-eminently a
mixed-farming country, and as such is capable of supporting a very large number of settlers. The railroads of
British Columbia, completed ancl building, would do credit
to a much older country. More ancl more attention is
being given to the building of good roads, but greatly
needed is a co-operative government plan that will enable
settlers to locate homes and feel reasonably free from
financial bankruptcy while they are bringing a portion of
their lands under cultivation ancl are able to secure a
revenue from them.

To sum it all up, the people
must appeal from the "decision in
no uncertain manner. The evidence taken and a part of the
record is positive in its overwhelming character in favor of
George Street; hence what IS
the powerful influence beneath
the surface that in the face of
everything that could be said the
decision was thus made? It is
admitted that the evidence produced by the interests in favor
of a western site was hopelessly
snowed under, and their side
was correspondingly weak as the
George Street site was strong.
Counsel for the western site

been hung up in the western
town and bitterly regretted their
choice, having carried the burden
of settlement, have but secured
an empty victory (that time will
prove) of no value to their fortunes or their pride.
We have no love for the Grand
Trunk Pacific Railway in the
question, as it has been shown
that they tried to sell the people's
interest in the matter for the
sum of $200,000, but at th« same
time their great work of opening
up the country to development,
the investment of millions in so
doing, the expense of landscaping
and laying out the townsite to its
best advantage from the standpoint of beauty and engineering
possibilities is gone for nought
and the City made hideous by
the decision. Finally all those
pioneers of trade and commerce
who have been hardy enough to
settle and develop the city, to
start it on its way of progress
and greatness — their interests
were of no avail as against the
real estate speculators who have
bought and now wait for some
one else to buy at high costs off
their hands, and to develop what
they refuse to do, in the interests
of the city as a whole. In this
list we are advised that Provincial and Dominion office holders
are to be found, and at the hearing it was read off by the counsel
for Maple Street Site interests,
that one prominent provincial
office holder had a material interest in that section. It might
prove interesting to know what
the interests might disclose along
this line. Naturally these Government Officers and servants of
the people are human, they have
not invested for fun, and natur-

have to  depend solely on this |

there can be only one result and
that is a great scarcity of cattle
in the United Slates next spring,
While this shortage will probably work some hardship on the
American  consumer,   it is  the
best thing that has occured in
the interest of the Canadian cattle  raiser  for   a   good    many
months.   Information which
comes to the United States from
Canada is to the effect that the
Capadian cattle raisers are well
aware of  the shortage  in the
American corn market and the
consequent promised shortage of
cattle in the spring,   and they
will hold oivto  their cattle this
winter, feed them well and have
them in prime condition for the

Canada Must be Empire's Granary
London.— TheWestminster
Gazette, referring to Canada's
reported willingness to increase
her contribution of men to 150,-
000 by next autumn, says:
"We recognize to the full that
Canada is in the fight to the full
extent of its resources, but we
shall expect the recruiting at
home will have settled the issue
before we have to bring any such
number of men from Canada.
We must remember that from
Canada is required a double service. She will have to be, to a
large extent, the granary of the
empire, and if we are to come
successfully through this war,
the men working in the fields of
Canada will be doing their share
almost as effectually as those
actually at the front."
questionably there will be good
markets for years to come.
Changed European conditions
will naturally have their effects
on this country. The tide of
settlers to Canada should set in
strongly after the war has been
brought to a close.
Some men are like umbrellas ;  they

It should be the slogan of
every rural and town consumer
never to send away for goods
that he can just as well buy at
home. Every time you send a
dollar to a mail-order-house that
dollar, as far as you and your
community are concerned, is
practically out  of  circulation.

the ones that help to keep up
your schools, your churches and
your town. They are the ones
who deserve your trade, and not

ing else to give in exchange,
to whom do you go for accommodation until some uncertain
time when you can pay?
Do you not always find your
home merchants ready and willing to let his goods go on
promises, not guaranteed notes,
but verbal promises, trusting to
your honesty and good luck in
meeting the obligation later?
How many farms have been
paid for hy your merchants advancing the goods to keep life in
the body, and cash to meet the
dreadful interest on the mortgage?
Under the same conditions
would the farmer trust the merchant for months and months
with the produce on his farm, or
would he ask for cash or its
equivalent upon delivery of the
Merely Institutions of Accommodations
■*■ but nevertheless it is a fact,
and shows the entire lack of any
sense of justice, but many people
regard their local stores as merely institutions of accommodations.
When these people have cash to
spend it goes to the far-away-
mail-order-houses, but when
times are dull, when they are
sick or out of work, or during
the season when the farmers are
not turning their produce into
cash, what do they do? Do they
write to the catalogue house and
tsk for credit?
If they did, do you think they
would get it? Not oh your life.
Those concerns must have cash,
must have it in advance, must
have it before you can even see
the goods you buy. The consumer sends his money and then
sits down and waits until the
mail-order-house gets good and
ready to fill his order. But when
people want credit or favors of
any kind, they hustle oft' to their
home merchant, very obligingly
order what they want, and tell
him to wait at least from one to
six months for his pay.
In buying from your home
merchants you deal with neighbors. Buy with goods before
you. Have goods delivered free.
Return goods if not satisfactory.
Build up your homo Btores. Help
build up your town. And make
of yourself a worthy man of
your day and time.
