An Englishman named Fred. G. Taylor, twenty-five years of age, a native
of London, who has been in Canada
one and a half years, was killed by a
falling tree near Fort Goorge last
Tuesday. The fatal accident occurred
through the falling of a tree which
lodged in another, and in breaking off
it struck Taylor, killing him instantly.
W. Sommerton and S. J. Watson,

the most important point between here

THE WEATHER
The winter season has just begun
to put in an appearance here, snow
falling here for thc lirst time
today. The preliminary flurry, however, is not regarded ns the commencement of the cold weather, as
we may expect two week's more of
the "Indian Summer" if things work
out according to schedule.
Hall, on Hamilton Aveiue, in aid of the
almost destitute children of a foreigner,
the mother of whom died recently in
the outskirts of the city.
Tho basket social, organized by Mr.
H. W. Gross and Mr. A. Buchel anil
several ladies, was undoubtedly one of
the most successful entertainments
ever held here. The large hall was
crowded to its capacity by the dancing
couples, and a three-piece orchestra,
led by John Senior, a local harpist,
rendered most excellent music.
. The auctioning of the 1 askets brought
by the ladies commenced about midnight. The rules of the sale, similar to
the rules of all auctions, were that the
highest bidder be the purchaser. Auctioneer Walter Austin, who performed
the duties of his office in a most capable and bu-iinesslike manner, announced the fact that each basket
offered contained the name of its fair
donalor and that the purchaser was
privileged to share the contents with
this lady in the alfresco luncheon which
would follow the auction.
Bidding began briskly, when a bottle
of Murnra's Extra Dry, in  a blue setting which gave promise of many hidden  delicacies,   was  offered  for sale.
The prices ranged from $10 to $60 and
$75 for  each  basket;  but the highest
price paid for a basket was the sum of
$100, bid by Mr. "Mike" Burr, a Prince
George real estate operator, for a basket which  the  auctioneer represented
as of especial  benefit  to the children
for   whom   it   was   offered   for   sale.
Tears  rolled  down  the fair cheeks of
many of the ladies present as the auctioneer,   in  a  voice  hoarse with suppressed emotion, brought  to a close an
impassioned  appeal  for  a high bid on
the basket which meant so much to the
motherless children. Amid dead silence
the voices of the bidders, shaking with
feeling, commenced to compete for the
basket.    "Twenty dollars I'm bid, gentlemen,   fur  this  basket: this  basket
which will bring joy to the poor little
children back in the little old log cabin
by   the   hill,"   said   the" auctioneer.
"Fifty,"   "seventy-five,"   "one   hundred,"  gasped  the   deeply  impressed
bidders  amid  the wild cheers of the
brilliant  assemblage.     "Sold   to  Mr,
Burr  for one  hundred dollars,"  said
the auctioneer amid a salvo of applause.
Mike grasped tbe basket.   Wnen opened it Was  found  to contain a live rabbit, which hopped out and did marathon
stunts round the room which wonld put
Longboat to shame.   Mr. Burr was entirely contented with  his bargain, and
announced his  intention of rearing his
$100 bunny with care and  solicitude in
sickness or in health.
As will be seen from the statement
hereunder, which we publish at the request of the gentlemen and ladies in
charge of the event, tho substantial
sum of $527 was realized for the benefit. The large success of the enterprise owes much to the efforts and assistance of Mr. and Mrs. Gross, Mr.
Buchel, Mr. Wilson of the Club Cafe,
and thc many ladies who provided the
handsome baskets.

With reference to his recent tour
of the central interior, Mr. Scholefield, provincial librarian and archivist, stated to a representative of the
Victoria Times, that he had been
very successful in gathering information respecting that historic section
of the province. Mr. Schofidld was a
visitor here recently during bis tour
of this section,
"One is liable to forget," said Mr.
Schofield, "that New Caledonia, as
the central interior was called in
early days, is tbe oldest part of the
province in point of settlement.
Having established Fort McLeod, on
McLeod Lake in 1805, Simon Fraser
proceeded the following year, by way
of the Parsnip River, Bad River, the
North Fork of the- Fraser, the Nechaco and Stuart Rivers, to Stuart
Lake, where he built a rude post,
afterwards the famous Fort Saint
James, for many years the capital of
New Caledonia. Then the intrepid explorer founded Fort Fraser on Fraser
Lake, so named in honor of his
chief.
"Fraser named Stuart Lake and
Stuart River after bis able lieutenant. Hence the names which we see
on the map today. In 1807, the energetic partner of the Northwest Company built Fort George at the confluence of the Nechaco and Fraser
rivers. It was from this port that
Simon Fraser started in 1808 on his
historic exploration of the Fraser
River. New Caledonia soon became an
important domain of the Northwest
Company, and Fort St. James on
Stuart Lake achieved some distinction as the capital of the new district. New Caledonia was, and had
long been, a flourishing district when
Victoria was founded in 1843. So you
will see that the central interior
of the province must always have a
great attraction for the historian.
Hence my visit to that quarter."
Mr. Scholefield was very hospitably
entortained by Mr, Murray and Mr.
Bunting the officer in charge of Fort
St. James and Fort Fraser respectively. The settlers and ranchers wherever
he stopped also gave him a very cordial
welcome. The trip itself was not all
"beer and skittles," however, as exceptional rains had made the roads
very heavy, and as the storing places
in that district are few and far between, it was often necessary to
bivouac by the roadside, sometimes in
torrents of rain.
"I am not a farmer or an agriculturist," Mr. Scholefield declared, "but
I venture to prophesy that in the
course of a very few years there will
be an enormous development in that
section of the province. I saw great
stretches of rich poplar bottom, all of
which will he cultivated in a very
short space of ti.ae. The country seems
to be well watered with streams and
creeks, and the whole of it is dotted
with beautiful lakes. I should judge
that just as soon as the Grand Trunk
Pacific Railway is opened thousands of
settlers will take up homesteads in the
central interior, where, it is ir.ceresting
to recall, the first gardens and fields
weie ever cultivated on what is now
thc mainland of British Columbia.
"Along Mud River, about Government Meadows, Butcher Flat, Bobtail
Lake, Stony Creek, Zinkut and Stuart
Lukes, and along the beautiful Nechaco river, are thousands of acres of
Superintendent Leighton, who is
in charge of the system of the new
Imperial Express Company, Iietween
this point and Quesnel, called on Tho
Herald this week. Mr. Leighton
gave us an insight into the int*. n-
tions and aims of the Imperial Express Company in regard to the important matter of the carrying on of
the Cariboo mail contract, which
the new company have been awarded.
Mr. Leighton requested that we
correct an impression created by a
previous reference in these columns
to the Imperial Express Company,
in so far as the article referred to
gave the impression that Mr. Geo J.
Hammond, of Vancouver was associated with the contractors in the
delivery of the mail. Mr. Hammond
has nothing whatsoever to do with
the mail contract according to Mr.
Leighton, except that his Steamboat,
the Robert C. Hammond, being the
best boat available, was chartered to ,
commence the new service. Mr. Leighton requests that we make this correction in justice to Mr. Hammond
and  his  company.
Speaking of the plans of his company Mr. Leighton stated that the
company would have offices in both
towns. They will compete for passenger and express traffic against the
B. O. Express Company, and they
intend to distribute all over the
routes which they cover, a most
complete outfit of vehicles, and horses
for the conduct of a first class service.
For the immediate requirements of
the mail service Mr. Leighton has
chartered, two of the fastest and best
gasoline boatB ton the river, the "P.
R. T." and tne "Kicking Horse."
These two boats will carry the mail
both ways between Soda Creeit and
here just as long as navigation will
last, after which the company will
be in readiness to make the all-overland journey.
Motor cars will be used on the
Cariboo road as far north as possible all winter, and from the point
where the motor car service is discontinued the horse drawn vehicles
will take the traffic northward.
The new company have already 100
head of horses in Ashcroft, and more
are en-route to them there. The
coaches used will be the thorough-
brace waggon, better known as the
"Concord Coach."
THEATRICAL MEN COMING

Waddell and Theodore Goodrich, recently of the Keith & Proctor circuit
and formerly "the Kubeliks of Vaudeville 1910-11" have been in Edmonton

this part of the country. FortGeorge

leave shortly to establish a musical

theatre and feature musical specialty

not mean to say that the whole district
is of this description, for there is some
jack pine country which may not
amount to much; at the same time it is
not unlikely that some use may yet be
found for a considerable portion of
these jacli pine lands. Generally
speaking, however, there is a vast extent of fine land, which will oni day
i
be turned to good account."
In conclusion, Mr. Scholefield urged
that everyone who possibly cot d
should visit thc interior. "The average
resident,*' said he, "of the seaports of
British Columbia knows very little of
the magnificent resources of the great
interior of the province. The country,
indeed, is delightful in every sense of
the term, and will in the near future
be the playground of the people as it
will be a centre of production. Nothing can be finer than the climate und
the scenery of that almost boundless
expanse which is the interior of the
province of British Columbia." FORT GEORGE HERALD

WE have received through the mails from the city of
Chicago a copy of the book by Mr. John Hill, Jr.,
of the Chicago Board of Trade, entitled "Gold Bricks of
Speculation." The last reference we made to this book
was prior to a libel suit brought against this paper last
year by Mr. George John Hammond, president of the
Natural Resources Security Company, Limited, of Vancouver. Our previous references to the book by Mr. Hill
were in the nature of. quotations from its pages, and references to the affairs which led up to its publication and
the part it played in a strenuous campaign against the
bucket-shop evil in the United States before Mr. Hill's
work, and the work of others like him, largely eliminated
the evil from the commercial conduct of those states in
which it was prevalent. The name of Mr. Hammond
figured prominently in the book as one of those who had
organized and conducted large systems of these bucket-
shops. These references of ours, together with statements of our own, as they appeared in the past, landed
us into a great deal of trouble. We were sued for
criminal libel, forced to a great expenditure to protect
our liberty, and finally found guilty by "twelve good
men and true." The court, ruled by Judge Morrison,
who charged the jury strongly against us in spite of the
fact that much of our vital documentary evidence was
excluded on technicalities, passed a nominal sentence upon us and requested that we apologize to Mr. Hammond
for the blemish which we cast upon his character—something which we have never done, and under no circumstances will we ever do, as we value, even above our
liberty, the uncompromising principles of journalism
which, in our code of ethics, preclude the repudiation of
the written word contrary to the convictions of the
writer.
The book which we have received, however, from
whomsoever it came, contains supplementary pages to
those which were contained within its covers the last
time we read it.
The concise and explicit statements which we find in
the supplementary pages of the book, aforesaid, refer to
Mr. Hammond,   they are a direct attack upon his
CHARACTER AND HIS PAST; WILL MR. HAMMOND TAKE
STEPS TO REPUDIATE THESE EXACT CHARGES AGAINST
HIM?
We bear no animus, but if the charges brought by Mr.
Hill be true where does it land the judge, the "twelve
good men and true," and the editor of the Herald, who
was convicted of criminal libel ?
^HE passing of the frontier in Western Canada marks
the progress northward of development and the migration of the people on this great, restless continent to
new lands of promise, where things are less settled, and
the various branches of human endeavor are afforded
greater opportunity for a ground-floor start than in the
Old World, where ambition is suppressed by a system
which, through the accident of birth in either a high or a
low estate, and the corresponding advantages or disadvantages ahead of one, largely rules destiny and leaves
one to follow a routine through an eternal cycle.
Gradually the great, intricate commercial system of
the south is absorbing the raw northern portion of the
North American continent. Throughout Canada the
northern latitudes, which a few years ago were in the
wilderness, are now falling into the settled state which
comes with the advent of railroads. The Fort George
district five years ago was an Indian hunting ground,
trade was for furs, and land which today is selling for
hundreds of dollars an acre was open to the world at
large for purchase from the provincial government at $1
an acre.
The last chance for the man who wants to start on the
edge of things and make good appears to lie in the Peace
river valley. The Herald believes that with the advent
of transportation to this point over the G.T.P. steel here
next spring a general movement northward into the
Peacs River valley, by way of the Giscombe Portage
route, will commence. South Fort George, as the natural outfitting place for the Peace River country, should
now take up seriously and make an issue of the necessity
of having a road opened up to a navigable point on the
Peace River waters, so that this natural route may be
taken full advantage of.

URGES LOANS FOR
U. FARMERS
Mr. J, W, Arthur Kelly, Australian Trade Commissioner,
Gives Views.
"British Columbia will never become
the agricultural province that it ghould
with spasmodic efforts at development.
The province must be systematically
developed and 1 think your farmers
ought to receive every aid and encour-
"tenient from the government," said
Mr- J. W. Arthur Kelly, a special com-
misiioner Bent to America by the gov-
wnment of Victoria, Australia, to
"udy land settlement methods in this
country.
"I" my state, for instance, we have
during the past few years changed the
»-»te from a mining and stock-raising
district, to a mixed farming community
10 the advantage of everyone. Our
government lenda maney to the farmer
t0 open up their farms, up to sixty per
'ent of the value of the land, for which
'flirmer Pays Bix per cent principal
•M interest each year. Not only is
p done, hut we build hoUBCi for our
wmen and help them to improve the
la"d.   he continued.
n Au3tralia, the government runs
B Sliv*np:s hanks and pays about three
''half per cant a year on de
actly similar. On all the important
questions, such as a white Australia,
the naval policy and compulsory training, the people are one there. It does
not matter what government is in
power, these policies are carried out.
As regards reciprocal trade between
the two countries, I may say that this
question has not yet assumed the proportions of a national issue, and the
people have not given it as much
thought as they willin time. I think,
however, if there had not been a change
of power just at the time that Hon,
Geo. E, Foster visited the Antipodes,
that it would have gone through. Personally I believe that reciprocity would
be en excellent thing for both countries. We can both exchange commo-
diti«s, which the other does not produce without interfering with the home
trade of the two Dominions.
Respecting state-owned railways,
banks and telegraphs in Australia, Mr.
Kelly was very enthusiastic. Since
coming to this country, he said, he was
prouder than ever of these government-
owned systems which, he stated, are
doing much to open up Australia.

TO BE REOPENED
Woodsmen will opsn anew the
old Cariboo trail around the upper Lillooet Lake, and the
pathway of the gold seekers
of the early sixties will
be utilized by the fire protection service of the government, A crew of men have been
sent to cut out the brush, re-
plac worn-out bridges and improve the trail from the foot of
the lake to the right-of-way of
the Pacific Great Eastern railroad.
The purpose of opening up the
trail again is to assist in the
work of fire-fighting in the forest
adjacent to the railway right-of-
way. It will be made wide
enough to permit of the fire
rangers riding on horseback to
the danger zone. This precaution is made necessary by the
building of the line and the
added risk of a forest fire originating in a spark from a locomotive. This trail will be the
last work to be commenced by
the forest fire protection service
this year, states Superintendent
George G. McKay, who has supervised the work of the party.
The old Cariboo trail fell into
disuse after the gold rush was
over, the Indians preferring to
navigate the lake in their canoes
in preference to nsing the trail
through the forest.

With the opening of regular
service on the Grand Trunk Pacific to Smithers, building activities In that town have begun
with redoubled energy. It was
busy before but now the place
fairly hums with activity.
Builders were handicapped up
to now by scarcity of lumber and
materials, the output of the local
sawmill being inadequate to meet
the demand. Train loads of material are being brought in from
the Coast and quickly used up.
The postoffice is now completed
and occupied. Merchants are
busy installing goods in their
stores as soon as construction
reached a stage that will keep
out the weather, Many are
moving in by wagon from points
off the railway, while every train
is bringing new residents, both
workmen and business men. No
fewer than 300 laborers and mechanics are busy on the townsite
sawing, hammering, grading
streets, laying sidewalks, ditching and clearing lots.
With so much building going
on and many houses and stores
yet to be built, there is a busy
winter ahead for the new railway
division point.
