IW. Stewart Informs Herald ^That Difi-
cult Problems of Remaining Gap Are
Solved-Headquarters for Contracting
firm to be Established Immediately on
Fraser River, Adjoining This Town.
jack Stewart,   managing director
tt, contracting    firm of   Foley,
Welch & Stewart'    bUilderS
rrand Trunk Pacific Railway, drove
Into town yesterday (rom Hazelton
Lompanied by Western Superintendent of Construction Shepard, D. A.
Hankin, a contractor, and J. L. »e-
Itallack, a mining engineer.
In an interview with The Herald,
Stewart stated    that  with the
■completion of    the two big bridges
|hat are holding up the tracks f6r a
,.,. weens at   Pophry   and Boulder
Creeks, this side of Hazelton, all the
tifflcult bridge work in British Columbia   was practically   completed.
These bridges,    he explained,    and
Jotter similar ones    along the com-
Ipleted construction,    were _ the big
■problems in bridging, as their height
[precludes the possibility   of passing
Ttheir locations on false work or piles.
s bridges on the Fraser, he stated,
Iwould not hold up the line for any
length of time,    owing to the fact
■that the road  could cross* on piles
■at any of the bridge sites, without
■delaying the line until the permanent
■concrete and steel bridges were completed.
Construction work to the west, Mr.
■Stewart stated,   was being   rapidly
■pushed ahead. A large steam shovel
Iwas this week  delivered   at Fraser
■Lake over tbe ice, and this machine
Iwould commence excavation as soon
|ts its equipment could be assembled.
Questioned regarding the proposed
iange of route of the Pacific Great
Eastern, the rai.way now ih course
construction   from the southern
lend, between Vancouver and Prince
ge, Mr. Stewart said that the
application was made on finding (rom
reports of the engineering staff
|that the construction and mainten-
of   a line ot   railway up the
Fraser valley between   Lillooet and
Creek was impracticable. "The
|liM could be built,." said Mr. Stew-
"but it would he Impossible to
■maintain it after completion, owing
|to the great height of the sheer cannons and  cut banks   below    Soda
jCreek." He intimated that the road
Jwould traverse any practicable route
Ion the east side of the Fraser until
jit could reach the valley ot the river
I »t a point where the grade could be
J again constructed on its banks.
In referring to the   increase from
h P« cent to 4 j per cent in the guarantee of interest on the Pacific Great
Mr, Stewart said that this
j*as a means adopted to insure the
j notation of these securities at par
I1** view of the condition of the money
nwketa at this time. The flotation
j"' the Pacific Great Eastern bonds,
I waring as they do the guarantee of
I  ' Provincial government, should be

interviewer, that any sale of these
°w   Dar would   reflect   upon the
|cre«t of the province.

he remarked, to
Mr. Stewart stated that the building of his headquarters here would
be completed before navigation
opens, and that the office force and
headquarters camp staff would move
down here on the first boat in the
spring. Ue stated that this place
would be their headquarters until the
completion ot construction.
Construction work on the Pacific
Great Eastern, Mr. Stewart said,
would commence from this end before very long. Any plant which
could be spared from the work of
completing the ever shortening gap
in tbe main line would be turned
from here on to the work of grading
the north and south road.
Mr. Stewart is a man ot great energy. Coming over the long tedious
sleigh Journey of over 200 miles from
Hazelton, he rested here only one
day before resuming his travel to
the end-of-steel. He was thirsty for
news of the happenings in the world
outside, plying the interviewer with
questions ranging from the war ln
the Balkans to the revolution ln
Mexico.
It is the intention of Mr. Stewart's
firm to bring the completed line Into
Prince George, the G. T. P. town
here, bs the end of the year. This
was Mr. Stewart's statement. In any
event, he said, the steel would be ln
easy reaching distance by next fall.
WESTERN BRIDGES GOMP' TED
The big bridges over the Porphry
and Boulder creeks east of Prince
Rupert have been completed and the
steel gang moved forward to trout
Creek. The above named bridges are
the largest on the western section of
the G. T. P., If Skeena crossing is
excepted, until the road reaches the
crossing of the Telqua. The construction ot the Mud Creek bridge
has been delayed on account ot the
steel not arriving, but It Is expected
soon. The grading of the road as
far as Telqua is Just now nearlng
completion. It has been planned by
the big contractors, Foley, Welch ft
Stuart, to delay the letting of contracts for the balance ot tbe road
until spring, but this plan has been
chanced, and the work Is now open
all along the line.
F. P. BURDEN'S RESIDENCE
IS TOTALLY DESTROYED
DYFIRETODAY
Information reached this office this
afternoon of the total destruction by
fire of one of the most beautllul
homes in the Northern interior, at
Central Fort George, when the residence of Mr. F. P. Burden, ot that
town, burned to the ground.
Fire broke out in the basement of
the building this afternoon at 2.15,
and In less than half an hour the
beautiful Burden home was a mass
of smouldering ruins. Fortunate circumstances saved all the occupants
of the house from harm, as the Infant daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Burden was out with a friend ot the
family at the time when the fire
broike out, and Mrs Burden, who discovered the blaze, was not aware of
the disaster which threatened until
the rooms which opened off the spacious central room were blazing
fiercely.
The terrific heat from the building
prevented the saving of any ot the
furnishings save the piano and a few
odds and ends, and fighting the fire
effectually was an Impossibility by.
the time the alarm was spread.
The Burden home stood near the
bank ot the Nechaco river. It was a
story and a halt building of a solid
and comfortable bungalow type with
wide veranda and large windows.
The interior of the house was beautifully finished In woodwork, and the
furnishings were brought trom Nelson
at great expense.
Aside from the heavy financial loss,
Mr. and Mrs. Burden have lost all
their personal effects, and the hundred and one objects of value peculiar
to. the home.
The sincerest sympathy is expressed
by the people ot these communities
to Mr. and Mrs Burden. In the cities
such a loss would not be telt with
such keenness, as lt ls not Impossible to obtain some desirable residence at short notice, but conditions in this country do not afford
much choice in the matter of residences.
The loss, we understand, Is ln the
neighborhood ot $15,000 partly covered by Insurance.
AMENDMENT TO THE LAND ACT
MANY NEW TOWNS WILL
H4VE BIRTH THIS YEAR
IN THEWEST
During the coming spring and
summer a large number of new towns
will be placed on the map of western
Canada along the line of the G.T. P.
railway, and the townsiteB will be
opened to the public by the Transcontinental Townsite Co., the official agents of the railway, says a
Winnipeg press despatch. While many
ot these are still unnamed and by no
means definitely located, over 40
have been finally decided on at present, and it is probable that all town-
sites on the company's existing lines
will be located and named tbis year.
The new towns decided on are as
follows:
Main line—Willow River, which is
already on the market, and two
other unnamed towns to be situated,
the one at the confluence of the Chil-
ako (Mud) and Nechaco Rivers, and
the other at the conxuence of the
Stuart and Nechaco rivers.

WIN GOLD WAS KING fin HE OLD CARIBOO
The following excerpts from the
amendments to the Land Act show
how the new rulings will affect the
future pre-emptor. The clause which
provides for the tree delivery of preemption lands reads as follows:— .
"Section 18 of said chapter 129 is
hereby repealed and the following is
substituted therefor:—
"18—Every person pre-empting surveyed or unsurveyed Crown land
after the thirty-first day of March,
1913, shall, after the issuance of a
certificate of improvement as provided in section 28 of said chapter
129, to be entitled to a free grant of
such land upon payment of a Crown
Grant fee of ten dollars."
The ruling governing the issuance
of certificate of improvement is more
stringent than heretofore, and extends the time in which such certificate may be obtained from two
to three years. This clause follows:
"The first subsection of section 28
of said chapter 129, as the said section is amended by section 12 of chapter 16 of the statutes ot 1912, is hereby repealed, and the following is substituted therefor:—
"28—A pre-emptor of surveyed land
or of unsurveyed land when the survey thereof is effected, who has been
in occupation of his pre-emption
claim for not less than three years
from the date of his record, Bhall be
entitled to receive from the Commissioner a certificate, to be called
a 'certificate of improvement,' in the
Form No. 4 in the Schedule hereto,
upon his proving to the Commissioner by the declarations in writing of
himself and two other persons, or in
such other manner as the Commissioner may require, that he has been
in occupation ot his pre-emption
claim from the date of the record
thereof, and has made permanent
Improvements thereon to the value
of five dollars per acre, including the
clearing and bringing under cultivation of at least five acres. Such
declaration shall be In the Form No.
5 In the schedule hereto "
In an interview in the Vancouver
Province, Mr. J. Cumming, ot the
150 Mile House, on the days of the
real "Old Cariboo" he tells some Interesting history of the days of the
gold discoveries:
"In the year 1862" he said, "I
obtained employment trom the Cariboo Company, which held some
claims on William's Creekf 'Cariboo
Cameron' held one claim in his own
name, his wife held another, and I
held one for Cameron In my name,
so that out of seven claims Cameron
controlled three. I worked the claim
I held for him and at the end of five
months, when he was going to Victoria, paid over to him the results
ot my total wash-ups, which amounted to a fraction less than $100,000.
Mr. Cameron's wife died in the fall
of the year, and no sooner was her
death known than the claim held in
her name was staked by nearly a
thousand men. There was a real
forest ot stakes, and I think that it
they were all put together would
have measured a good tat cord ot
wood.
"Cameron entered suit In the Supreme Court against these Jumpers,
and when lt was tried before Judge
Begbie, a decision was given ln his
favor, with costs, which were heavy.
The Judge gave the Jumpers a good
dressing down. As I have said before, Cameron left Cariboo for Victoria, taking his wife's body with
him. There he had it Immersed ln
alcohol, to preserve It, as he was
going to take it back east by way of
the isthmus lor burial near her
former home.
"When in Victoria Cameron purchased another Williams Creek
claim   from  tbe Clendennlnge,   and
also two side claims from the same
brothers. Then he returned to Barkerville, but in eight months he left
again, this time for good. As he now
owned, five out ot the seven claims
in the company, he was waiting tor
the result ot a tew months' wash-up
to pay his expenses.
"You can form some idea ot the
richness of the claim I held for htm,
when I tell you that one day he
came to me and said: 'Cumming, I
wish you to get me two good pans
of dirt, one I wish to send to my
sister, and the other to Mrs Wattie.
I took a pan and went Into the claim
I was working for him and washed
two pans of dirt. I found thirty two
ounces in one and thirty six In the
other. Of course I knew the claim
was rich, but these pans of dirt were
got from a thin streak of dirt which
ran through the claim, about tour
feet from bedrock. You can tajoe a
candlestick in your hand and walk
ln front of the streak and pick out
the gold. Wattle was In charge of the
company's Interests that year.
"At last, at the end of eight
months' clean-up 'Cariboo Cameron'
quit us for good. It took Just eight
paak mules to carry away his gold-
dust. The consignment went to the
coast under a guard well-known to
Cameron, and they were well rewarded tor their services. When Cameron
left Wattie took charge. He was a
native of Valleyfield, Lower Canada,
as It was then known. He worked the
claims for one year, when I took
charge.
"When Cameron left the claims
were Just opening up, and far more
gold was taken out after he left.
The dust taken out after Wattle
too* charge was divided between
himself and a Mr. Steele, who subsequently went  Into cattle raising,
and shortly afterward died. I worked
the claims until we closed down in
1886. Wattie, who went east In the
following year after Cameron, came
out again a few years ago to report
for some Montreal shareholders on
Hobson's claim at Bullion.
■'A number of young men who owned claims above the Canyon where
poor Dutch Bill was working, washed
all the gravel on their claims, eight
feet in depth, until they struck a
thick clay bottom. Then they Btopped
and went up to Antler, where they
made nothing. After throwing up
their claims on William's Creek, the
ones with the clay bottom, I mean,
a gambler named Abbot said to
some of the beys: 'Come and we'll
sink through the clay and see whether we can find anything there,' They
did so, and struc'k pay dirt at once,
g ng J100 to the pan, and sometimes
higher. He sent back to Antler and
got the boys down who had abandoned It and paid them good wages to
work tor him.
"Just below these claims was the
Canyon, through which the waters ot
William's Creek ran. This claim was
taken by Dutch Bill, who discovered
William's Creek, and after whom It
was named. But unfortunately tor
BUI his claim was worthless. Down
what was supposed to be the old
channel ot William's Creek, were
several claims such as Black Jack,
Diller and the Canadian Company.
The last company paid high—it was
rich. One claim gave to one pick, and
a windlass, 102 lbs. in one day. This
was the Diller. Conkin Gulch also
paid big. The Erlcson Co., with four
picks gave 1700 ounces ln a 24-hours
wash. The Caledonian on William's
Creak gave $16 to the pan, Dutch Bill
didn't make much but he was a good
prospector.
EDMONTON DRUMMERS
ARE TAKING ORDERS
J. E. Thompson and J. F. McM illin.
representing Marshall, Well-s & Co.,
of Edmonton arrived here this week by
special stage with 600 lbs. of sample*
These are the first represent! lives o
Edmonton business bouses to visa our
city for the orders of the local mercantile establishments. Mr. Thompson paid
a visit to the town last summer, coming down the Fraser rivor from the
head of navigation in a gasoline boat
with Mr. Hood, a merchant of Tete
Jaune Cache, who will open a store
here Hhortly. Mr Thompson is general
sales manager for the west for Messrs.'
Marshall, Wells & Co., a hardware I rm
doing business throughout the northwest, with head office in Detroit, M>cl\
The orders being taken now will be
shipped from Edmonton over the Grund
Trunk Pacific to thc end of steel as
soon as the season of navigation opens
about the first of May.
The fact that they brought in samples '
indicates that this Edmonton firm believes in thoroughness. No coast firm
has ever carried samples into the Cariboo, so far as is known, as the weight
of these samples is very great.
Charges involving their business
methods and their seats on the
Board of Trade have been filed in
Chicago against Frank M. Bunch,
tormer president of the Board, and
Mark Bates. The accuser is John
Hill Jr. The officials ot the board
last week refused to reveal the
charges further than to admit that
they involved irregular dealings. The
filing of the charges caused a sensation in the grain trade because of
the prominence of the men involved.
Bunch and Bates gave out a signed
statement in which they said they
would welcome an Investigation.

The amendments to the Land Act introduced by the Minister of
Lands will king important and timely changes into the land
policy of the provincial government. The effect of the act will be
the effacement of the large army of those pseudo-settlers we have
referred to in these columns as "tinhorn pre-emptors," and will
reward the settler who takes and cultivates a square half-mile of
this fair province with a deed in fee simplelof this land as a reward for his labor, the total cost to him being only $12. The
passage of the amendments places large power in the hands of
the Minister of Lands, as in various sections the act has been
rendered more elastic than heretofore with power reposed in the
Minister to provide for contingencies which may arise in the disposition of the Crown lands. The only amendment we see to the
clauses of the act referring to the sale of public lands in unreserved portions of the province is a rule to the effect that those
who owe any balance of purchase money to the government,
whether in the case of purchased or pre-empted lands, must pay
in same to the Minister within six months from the date of a
notice which will be published in the official Gazette, should such
1, ice appear, or lose their land. This is a good provision, to our
way of thinking, as it does not appear to be good policy to permit
those dealing in lands purchased from this province in large areas
to operate "on margin," as such a condition.threatens to cheapen
land values in British Columbia.
We have received a communication from Mr. August Wolf,
secretary of the Citizens' League of Edmonton, and publicity expert for that city. Mr. Wolf takes exception to an article which
recently appeared in these columns regarding the negligent attitude of Edmonton towards the trade of this section. Mr. Wolf
returns a retort courteous to a rather vigorouslattack we made
upon his attitude in the matter, and we regret that his letter is
personal rather than for publication. He states that the work
of organizing towards securing the trade of this section is out of
his province, but lies with the Edmonton Wholesale Merchants'
Association, who have the matter in hand. Referring to his
position Mr. Wolf states:
"You must know that Prince George, as your future city
will be known, has my best wishes for greatness and importance in all lines of commercial and industrial activity, and
that personally I am in sympathy with every movement undertaken by your people.    We want to be neighborly and
good friends.   Tell me what I can do."
The position of The Herald in the matter is this: On July 29th,
1912, we wrote the Edmonton Board of Trade drawing their
attention to facts in connection with the approach of the time
when this place would look towards Edmonton for supplies.    We
received no answer from the board, but commenced to receive the
weekly press service emanating from August Wolf's publicity
bureau.   We drew the conclusion that Mr. Wolf had the matter
in hand.   There has been absolutely no advance in the trade
relations of the two cities to date other than the appearance of a
stray traveller or two, except the trade which has been placed in
Edmonton by the merchants here themselves.   We have gone to
Edmonton where Edmonton should come to us.   Take the matter
of forwarding and looking after the shipment of freight from the
end of steel.   Edmonton has done nothing towards the facilitation
of this matter.   Most of the mercantile houses that are buying
material from Edmonton and other eastern points are sending in
personal representatives to the steel-head to look after their individual shipments.   There is no means at present of ascertaining
the various business houses with whom the business men of this
1    are anxious to do business with at Edmonton.-   The
dc-airi nas no means of knowing what wholesale stationers sell
print paper in Edmonton, for instance, and the many consumers
of the various commodities required by any specific branch of
business have not been notified of the existence of any Edmonton
source of supply.

It has been suggested that a Game Protective Association be
formed here to assist the wardens in protecting game from unsportsmanlike destruction and in bringing prosecutions against
the illegal killing of game. Thero has been a noticeable lalling
off in the game to be found in the Fraser valley during the past
four years. With the advent of the G. T. P. construction the
moose seemed to take to the hills, and they have probably discovered fields and pastures new in the valleys beyond. But there
are many of these monarchs of the forest still to be found in the
Fort George country, and instances present themselves at times
showing that the game laws at present are not very strictly adhered to in these parts. It is not to be conceived that hungry
pre-emptors or men in the woods will forbear killing when fresh
meat is to be found roaming at large hard-by their doors, but the
protection that is required is against the killing of the doe or the
cow moose in the rutting season, A Game Protective Association
could assist in conserving the wild game, and is a project worthy
the support of all sportsmen.

The news of the death of Captain Scott and the brave members
of his expedition who perished of cold and exposure on their return from the South Pole shocks the civilized world. People who
live in cold countries appreciate more fully what terrible suffering
must accompany such a death. Commander Scott's name goes
down with Andree and the others in the roll of those martyrs to
science whose names are inscribed upon the records that shall
live forever amid the brave men who have died for
country's honor.

ering building operations unpopular
There is a lot of building planned
in South Fort George for the spring.
We have not heard how much money
Mr. Hammond Intends spending this
year ln growing his town, but we do
not imagine that it will bo any very
vast sum.
The G. T. P. station will, in our
opinion, be located about one third
;0( the distance across the Indian
(Reserve from the Praser river.
I cannot give the valuation of lots
jin 932, as the property was^with-
(drawn from the market shortly after
lit was floated. In my opinion, how-
lever, I would say that this addition
1B „ b one.   Lots in 932 should
bring good figures at any time, as
they are good holding property. I
would advise you to withhold your
lots from sale until the Indian reservation is on the market.
Prince Albert, Sask.
Could you let me know to whom
should address    myself regarding
;he payment of taxes on property in
'ort George?
Also, can you give the number of
;hc blocks which have the principal
wildings on them at Fort' George?
Is there any proposed building for
uia year?
Could you give me any idea of the
ralue of lots in Block: 932 as I own
lome lots in  that block and would
like to know about what they would
irlng if put on the market.
D. G. O.
Address the   Deputy Assessor and
Jollector, Quesnel,    B. 0.,'for  any
lax hills owed on Fort Qeorge prop-
|rty.
The blocks   having the   principal
levelopment on them at Fort George
[Natural Resources Company's town-
Ite) are those at the north-east end
ll Central Avenue, where the town-
ite company's    hotel   stands. The
justness street extends down Central
.venue from this point for about 3
llocks of lots.   There is  very little
.velopment at any other point on
ie townsite, ln   comparison to its
Ize.
Your third question is answered in

Dear Dan,-I like this place better every day and
you couldn't pull me out of it. The rheumatism
has completely left me and I never felt better in
my life and can eat like a horse.
I never saw better potatoes than I have seen
grown here, and the largest carrots 1 have ever had
the pleasure of seeing were grown here. The nice
flavor of the vegetables and roots here was one of
the first things which 1 noticed. A Mr. McDonald
here grew over 100,000 pounds of potatoes thiB
summer. I saw some No. 1 oats and wheat which
was grown here, and the wheat was even a better
variety than the oats.
There is plenty of the finest land surrounding
Port Fraser, and the location of the townsite and
view from it is perfect. The appearance of the
country generally, from a scenic point of view cannot be improved upon.
At present there is on the townsite a sawmill, a
branch of the Bank of Vancouver,  hotel almost
completed and will be open very soon, Government
building which is a credit to the town, the Fort
Fraser Investment Company, Dominion Stock &
Bond Corporation agent and oflice and his residence, a drug store, postoffice shortly, and a great
number of larger or smaller houses.
The best openings at present are for n butcher,
cabinetmaker to make furniture and run a furniture store, livery, restaurant, bakeshop, general
stores and clothing store. In the spring there
should be good openings for another grocery, hardware, poolroom, barber shop, jewellery, another
sawmill, boarding house and rooms, tailor, dressmaker and probably several other lines.
Taking conditions all around I am mote pleased
every day that 1 came in here when I did. This is
going to be a good town, and the man who gets in
here first is going to do well. Hang onto what
property you have here, Dan, and my advice to you
is to get more of it. It is bound to come, and all I
can say is that Fort Fraser is good enough for me.

A dance was held in Birch's hall last
night which proved a very enjoyable
event for the large attendance.
The recent thaw flooded the Fraser
river and the frosty weather lately has
turned the flooded channel into several
miles of splendid skating.
Chas. E. McElroy left for the south
yesterday to accompany Mrs. McElroy
here from Ash:roft. Mrs. McElroy has
been spending the winter in the eastern
states.
W. C, Ritchie, an Edmonton jeweller,
arrived here on the last stage. Mr.
Ritchie is looking over the ground here
in view of the trade possibilities of the
future.
Logging operations on the Northern
Lumber & Mercantile Company's timber land continue to progress. The
LeBlanches have already landed over
600,000 feet of timber at the mill.
Wayne Houston, an old-timer in
Cariboo, and former proprietor of the
Soda Creek Hotel, is relieving Al.
Young as stagedriver between this
point and Blackwater. Mr. Young has
been laid up with lumbago, but is
rapidly recovering.
George B. McLaughlin, of the Northern Lumber and Mercantile Company, leaves Tuesday on a business
trip to the coast cities and eastern
points. He will be accompanied by
Mrs. McLaughlin, who will spend several weeks with friends in the eastern states.
Chief Constable Grundy, who left
here some weeks ago with two prisoners for the Kamloops jail, has been
transferred from this place to the
position of chief constable at Lytton,
on the C.P.R. This information is received here with regret. Constable
Grundy proved himself to be a capable,
efficient and conscientious officer in his
work here, and the town regrets losing
him.
The skating committee announce that
in the event of the weather not permitting the carnival to take place on
the ice next Monday evening (24th)
the affair will be turned into a masquerade ball in the Fort George Theatre.
Present weather conditions would indicate that some weeks of skating
weather may yet be expected, although
the mildness of the weather at present
prevents the flooding of the rink.
The new Empress Hotel, at the
corner of Fourth Street and Hamilton! Avenue, opens tonight for the
accommodation of the public. The
hotel has not been catering for the
public patronage up to the present
time,, but has now opened lte dining
room and rooms for business. The
Empress Hotel is a fine building,
carefully designed and built with regard to the public requirements.
The licence for the new hotel has
not yet been issued, although it is
expected daily. There appears to be
no reason for delaying the issuance
of this licence.
The final details of arrangement
for the Sheridan-Savoy fight were
made this week when the $500 aide
bet placed on Sheridan by his backers
was covered by the people of Central Fort George. The match will be
held in the Fort George Theatre on
Monday evening, March 17th., and it
is anticipated that a large hoUBe will
witness it. Interest in the coming
event is high hereabouts, owing to
the known ability of both the contestants. The contest is purely an
amateur event for amateur prizes.
Preliminary bouts arc being arranged
for by those in charge of the affair,
and a good evening's sport ls promised the fans. The number of ringside and box seats is limited. Reservations for these seats can be made
by 'phone to this oflice. Full particulars regarding the arrangements
of the house will appear ln these columns next week.

week when Mr. W. T. Kennedy, of

in the business to Mr. T. A. Blair, of

the late John Huuston used to kick out
his weekly paper. When the town was
properly laid out by surveyors, Kennedy, Blair & Co. built their present

At the confluence of the Fraser, Salmon and Willow Rivers.
The first town of importance to be established in Central
British Columbia on the Main line of the Grand Trunk Pacific
Railway. By those who are in close touch with the true
conditions, Willow River is regarded as being a town of
future great importance in the heart of "Canada's Inland
Empire." This fact, plus the fact that Willow River will be
an important lumbering, mining and agricultural centre,
makes property in this new town desirable from either a
business or investment standpoint. Willow River property
has been purchased by merchants and investors throughout
Canada and United States. Although the town was only
established October 16th, 1913, a number of lots have been
resold at decided profits, while other purchasers refuse to
. sell at even twice the prices paid. The business portion only
of Willow River is now on the market—the survey of the
residence portion has recently been completed and this portion
of the town will be placed on the market in the near future.
There are a limited number of lots available in the business
portion at the original prices. Easy Terms. No Interest.
Cleai and perfect title direct from the Grand Trunk Pacific
Railway. The Original and Official Townsite of Willow River
is located on Lot 785; Station Site approved by the Board of
Railway Commissioners March 26th, 1912, Order No. 16179.
