A. G. Hamilton of South Fort George
Receives Nomination on Fifth Ballot
"'vf/^wiat/ve a       —SOUTH FORT GEORGE". B. C, FRIDAY. MARCH 26th. 1915.
or,a,  .. c   Asiien,., "
The first, Convention of the
Conservative party of the new
Electoral District of Fort George
was held in Ritts-Kifer Hall on
tieorge Street, Prince Oeorge,
last evening, resulting in the
nomination of A. (I. Hamilton of
South Fort (leorge as the candidate for Member of the next
Provincial Parliament of British
The Convention was called to
order by the President of the
Central Association, Mr. A. G.
Hamilton. Neville Montgomery
was in his place as Secretary.
Following the roll call of delegates the Committee on Credentials representing each local
association throughout the district was appointed and retired
to prepare the list of delegates
and proxies entitled to participate in the Convention.
While the Credentials Committee deliberated, happy and timely speeches were made by P. E,
Wilson and others, the result of
which showed the delegates
from all over the District united
and confident of success at the
polls, and that the Conservative
party would again receive the
vote of confidence of the people.
The report of the Committee
on Credentials having been received, the following delegates
and proxies were voted as legally
entitled to represent the District:

This week saw the last of the
local conventions for selection of
candidates for member of the
British Columbia Provincial Parliament. The campaign for selection of one of the candidates is
now fairly launched and the lines
drawn for the electors to choose
who shall represent them in the
next House at Victoria. It is no
small honor to be selected by ones
fellow citizens to head the respective parties in the coming election
in this new Fort George Electoral
District. It is to be remembered
that it was a Conservative Gov-
ernment that gave to the people
candidate and member from this) 0f this district a candidate of their
new district. That they werejowni to represent and work for
not selected is no reflection upon j tne needs of thi$.di'strict, a mem-
creed of faith or politics. If Mr.
Mclnnis could be a conservative
there would be no possible opposition to him. He would be swept
into office unanimously, But his
political faith is his handicap.
The countries of the whole
world are more and more tending
to socialist practices, and the
parties in all governments have
for years been adopting socialist
planks in modified form. But
the Socialists are and always will
be far in advance of the people.
They are by nature in opposition
to present day principles of living.
They are always above the heads
of the people, just out of reach
of the thought and life of the
the manly calibre of the aspirants. But that they were the
choice of the respective districts
they call home and which they
represented at the Convention is
a happy evidence of the desire
of the people of the Fort George
District for the success of the
Conservative party at the polls
at the coming election.

Fort George district.
The Conservative candidate,
Mr. A. G. Hamilton, has the distinction of being almost the oldest
pioneer in the Fort George district. He was the president of
the first Conservative Association
catching up with some advanced
teaching but never entirely ready
to accept them as a whole. In this
respect the Socialists have their
field of woak, always teaching and
leading, but never entirely ac-
ceptible, and when elected are
shown last Saturday night when
the attorney-general received a
unanimous nomination to lead the
party in Vancouver at the coming election. There was not a
dissentient vote when Mr. R. R.
Maitland proposed that.'. r. Bowser should be given a complimentary nomination. Professor Odium seconded the motion, and
the delegates sprang to their feet
and cheered. In presenting the
resolution for a unanimous nomination for Mr. Bowser, Mr. Maitland said: "This convention in
passing the resolution will fittingly answer the charges, all of
them false, made against the
attorney-general, in regard to
certain miscarriages of justice.
Mr. Bowser has always been
ready to meet and answer fair
charges. He has wiped away
charge after charge. He is the
best attorney-general in Canada
today. (Cheers.) I say this advisedly; I say it discreetly. One
of the most brilliant lawyers in
the city, and he is on the other
side of politics, told me that there
was no attorney-general in Canada to compare in ability with
Mr. Bowser, and he knew them
all from east to west."
The convention was declared
by all in attendance to be the
most successful held by Conservatives in the history of Vancouver. There were 139 delegates
and two alternates present at
Conservative headquarters. The
proceedings ran smoothly, there
was considerable enthusiasm,
and Mr, Bowser was in fine fighting form and sailed in with some
stinging remarks and rebukes to
his "good friends the Liberals."
For the remaining five seats,
ten candidates were presented.
They were Messrs. F. VV. Welch,
Thomas Duke, J. W. Woodside,
Walter Leek, Charles Jones,
James Reid, W. R. Owen, A. C.
Stewart, C. E. Tisdall, M. L. A.,
and A. H. B.Macgowan, M.L.A.
Dr. Patterson and Dr. Jeffs had
declined nomination.
When the ballots were counted
the results showed Mr. Tisdall
heading the ticket with 126 votes;
Mr. Welch 113, Mr. Duke 111,
i Mr. Leek 108, Mr. Macgowan 97,
Mr. Jones 37, Mr. Owen 3, Mr.
Reid 29, Mr. Stewart 18, and Mr.
Woodside 16. A second ballot
was therefore not necessary and
the first five took their seats on
the platform where they were
joined by Mr. Bowser who came
in for an ovation as he mounted
the stage.
The Attorney - General, who
was greeted with cries of "Good
Old Napoleon," spoke as follows:
"I would be more than unnatural if I was not delighted to
receive a nomination at your
hands for the sixth time. On
four of those occasions I have
been successful and I can safely
predict success for us on this
occasion. It is the first time in
the history of the party that you
have tendered one of your old
members a unanimous nomination, and 1 can assure you that
it makes me very proud, becauso
of late I have come in for a good
deal of criticism. Your action
tonight makes me feel that I still
hold a place in the affections of
the Conservatives of this constituency.

A special despatch reports the
unanimous nomination of John A.
Fraser, former member from the
Cariboo district, which up to this
time included the present Fort
(ieorge district, as member from
the old Cariboo district.
Mr, Fraser has gradually advanced in the councils of the
Conservative Association until at
this time his interest and influence
in the party, has earned for him
thc well deserved honor that has
come to him in his renomination
from his old riding. The liberals
have nominated John Yorkston
to oppose him, but we believe
that the electors of Cariboo would

The people of the new Fort
George District have a lively and
keen interest in their past member and his constituents, and we
confidently look forwaad to his
re-election and return to the
sphere of usefulness in the house
at Victoria. Indeed now that
his duties in the northern part of
the district have been transferred
to another member to be elected
here, he will have greater opportunity to increase his usefulness

government assistance to develop
this great interior district, to
make it the pearl of all the districts in the province, he may be
as successful at Victoria as he has
ever been in his contests elsewhere. At the convention Mr.
Hamilton started with the largest number of votes of any individual candidate and in each succeeding ballot he steadily gained
until finally he was made the
unanimous choice of all the delegates.
The first candidate lo enter the
field was John Mclnnis, the
Socialist candidate. It has been
said of Mclnnis that here was a
man well posted, and withall a
man without reproach, clean in
his life, in sympathy with his
fellow men, and with the respect
of all his fellows of whatever
we will still have honest John as
our friend and neighbor.
In the Liberal candidate, Mr.
Gaskill, the people of that faith
have nominated their best man
to office. Everyone knows the
pioneer telephone man and how he
has worked to overcome the
wilderness of this new country
to install communication between
the different sections of our three
towns, with outlying districts, as
well as the outside world, when
we as a pioneer people were shut
off, before the arrival of the railroad. With patience and kindliness he has done his best, and
despite any fault finding the people in their hearts appreciate it.
We believe he stands the best
chance of election as member,
next to the Conservative candidate. And if by any chance he
should run in, the people will
have an  honest,  hardworking,
Bank B.N. A. South Fort
George Transferred to
Prince George Branch.
Five years ago this spring the
Bank of British North America
opened up the first bank in the
Fort George district, locating in
South Fort George. It joined in
the development of the district
and has consistently stuck to its
location, until this last week
when the combined conditions of
finance and adjustment of trade
throughout this district and the
whole of Canada, prompted the
reduction of expenses and the
amalgamating of the South
branch with that of Prince, on
George Street. Convenient facilities will be afforded all patrons
of South Town to continue their
business with the bank in its
George Street quarters. Mr. John
Munro will continue to manage
the bank affairs in the district.
Mr. Beaslcy, manager of the
South branch, and Mr. Whittle
his assistant, are engaged transferring the books records and accounts to the George Street
branch. Their many friends will
hope that they be retained here,
but if transferred to other
branches the best wishes of the
community will follow them to

Liberals are the people to carry the truth of things, we^wijll more
on the government of this province as yet. There is too much
at stake to risk a change at this
time, and as the campaign progresses, we believe the voters of
the Province and of this district
will see that the present unreasoning opposition in some quarters
to things conservative, is a form
of hysteria, born of the present
period of unrest the wide world
over, in which everybody has the
spirit of criticism of everything
and everybody else.   As we get
and more see that new faiths and
new propagandas are of passing
moment. We are in the process
of winnowing the chaff from the
wheat, the real from the unreal,
and much of the present opposition to the Conservatives will
fade away, as thought and exposition of the truth are brought
to bear. Criticism is cheap. Let
us for for a time consider facts—
What has been accomplished ?
And what can be accomplished
and the best hands to leave the
work to in the next four years of
the life of the Provincial Parliament?
The lighting situation for the
three towns of South Ft. George,
Prince George and Fort George
was simplified last week when
the Northern Telephone and
Power Co., now distributing
power to South Fort George and
Prince George, bought the plant
of the Northern Interior Light
& Power Co. of Central Fort
George. This latter plant has
exclusive rights in Fort George
and was installed by a Company
headed by Mr. J. H Johnson.
The installing of an electric
light plant in the days before the
railroad, over the Cariboo trail,
was no small task, and very expensive. The Brown Bros. (Melville G. and Charles) deserve no
small credit for their work in
providing the town with this
modern convenience, replacing
the old coal oil or gasoline lamps.
At the time the present plant
was installed, it was as big a
machine as the freighters on the
Cariboo, or the steamers on the
Fraser river from Soda Creek to
South Fort George could handle.
But now that the railroad is in,
they are at work on a larger and
more complete outfit that will
provide both power and light in
abundance to the three towns,
and at much reduced cost, as
well as with greater efficiency.
It will send a thrill through
every Canadian heart to know
that the men from the Dominion
have contributed their share to
the splendid work accomplished
in France during the past few
days. We all knew that our men
would give a good account of
themselves, and it is something
to be proud of that they are
worthy of a place beside the finest soldiers in the world—the
British infantry, and the splendid
fellows from India. in South Fort Geoiirr.

been in recorded history a scene
like that which took place on
Christmas Day in the North of
France ? Soldiers of both sides,
fresh   from   slaughtering each

In Quebec they have a banking
system of special benefit to the
farmers. Mr. Desjardins says of
this:—"Our present banking
system we must concede, was
organized to meet the requirements of manufacturing and
commerce, not those of agriculture. It is strange that our far-
seeing legislators have not seen
before this, that the banking
system tells against the farmer
and against the great basal industry of the country. The farmer needs long credits to make the
more costly necessary improvements which are slow in bringing
in returns. He needs also short
time credits to help him market
his produce and to tide over an
unfavorable period. Such credits
are now hard to secure and only
at a high rate ot interest.
"Now is the time for the government to come to the farmers'
assistence, especially when he is
being asked to increase production of grain and live-stock. The
country will not be satisfied until
it has a banking system adapted
to agriculture as well as our present system is to commerce, providing, first, long term payments
on land; short credits on supplies
and three, provision for marketing crops so as to avoid congestion and panic."

Eggs intended for hatching
should not be kept over 4 weeks.
Between forty and fifty degrees
is the proper temperature to keep
eggs for hatching during winter.
A box of fine road dust should
be kept within easy reach of the
hens every day in the year when
there is no dust in the yards for
the hens to wallow in.
It is a fact that in market
plump chickens, neatly dressed,
free from pin feathers with un-
soiled skin, and with perfectly
clean legs, will find a ready sale,
while poor stuff goes begging.
All small yards which keep the
fowls on the same ground week
after week, soon becomes filthy
and poisonous from the accumulated waste. Such ground should
be spaded up or plowed frequently, and if it gets yery bad the
surface should be removed and
carted away.
Don't try to raise early chicks
unless you have a place to properly care for them. It is a waste
of time and money. A good
many think if they can hatch the
chicks, brooding them is a small
matter. Such is not the case.
Brooding the early chicks successfully is a subject that needs
more attention than is usually
given it. Hatching early chicks
is comparatively easy.
There is no possible objection
to feeding egg shells to hens,
provided they are broken in small
bits so that the hens may not
readily recognise them, or they
may get in the habit of eating
eggs. Oyster shells and clam
shells pounded up fine must also
be fed and in liberal quantities,
for all of them are needed to
provide the hen with material to
make shells. Do not confuse the
grit box with the box containing
the shell-making material.

While not assuming the role of n
pessimist, W. 1!. Smith, chief engineer and genernl manager of tho
monton, Dunvegan and British
Columbia Railway, asserts that there
is an ever growing danger of Edmonton losing the great advantage
that will naturally accrue to it from
the development of Northern Alberta. The chief officer of the railroad which is gradually penetrating
the northern part? of Alberta made
this statement in an address before
the members of the Edmonton In-
dustrial Association. He pointed
out that British Columbia is casting
covetous eyes on this rich country
and unless Alberta keeps the situation within her grasp, the western
province will provide an outlet
through the mountains by way of
Prince Rupert and the Panama
Canal for the products which the
country is already clamoring to lie
allowed to sell to the outside world.
Mr. Smith emphasized the necessity of holding the north country as
a tributary to Edmonton. He said:
"If we cannot hold it we must
make up our minds to settle down
to a small city existence, and if we
can bold it we are confronted with
possibilities that even the most
sanguine among us could not possibly conceive as to be tbe real ultimate future of this city. The
province of British Columbia has
guaranteed the bonds of a railroad
running from Vancouver to Fort
George and thence in a northeasterly direction to the boundary of
the province of Alberta. From this
boundary to Vnncouver is approximately 800 miles and at tlie end of
this they have the world', market,
a realization of whieh lias been eon-
I templated by tho completion of the
i Panama Canal, The promoters of
this railway evidently figured that
its operation practically meant a
deviation of all the traffic and resources from tin; north portion of
Alberta to the seaport cities of Brit- i'.
ish Columbia, for running due westerly from Fort (ieorge is the main
line of the Grand Trunk Pacific.
This appeals to me," continued
Mr. Smith, "as a very serious situation and a great menace, but I
consider that the situation is far
from lost; in fact, that it lies within the hands of the business men of
lis province whether we retain the
north country or lose it. Every
cloud has a silver lining, and one
nf the results of lhe present depression is the fact that it will considerably delay the construction of the
line from British Columbia to our
north country, With the E. 1). &
B. C. this has not been the case as
we have been enabled to continue
•onslruction and today we actually
lave a line of railway into the north
•ountry that practically places it
within the reach of the city of Edmonton.''
