MODERN HOSTELRY
IS REFUSED LICENSE
Conservatives Incenseck at   the
Refusal of Licence for the
Empress Hotel—Government Criticised.
A special meeting of the Conservative Association was held in the
nre hall last Tuesday evening*. The
meeting was called ,by the executive
to take action in regard to the refusal of tfce application for a liquor
licence made by the Empress hotel.
This application received tne endor-
sation of the association some weeks
ago. In reply to the letter, recommending that the licence be granted,
the association was notified by the
attorney general that the licence was
refused for the present. The only explanation offered was that "it was
not considered in the public interest'
to grant the licence."
The meeting decided 4° ask the
government to reconsider its decision
in the matter. The sentiments,expressed at the meeting were of a
nature calculated to disrupt the organization ot the Conservatives here
for cause. It was pointed out that
tbe government have studious.y ignored ths recommendation^' ot the
association, and that its; usefulness
was outlived. John A. Fraser, M. P.
P. was severely criticised, and it w.as
niticible that this criticism comes
from staunch Conservatives. The
Herald does not believe that, this
criiticism is altogether justified in the
present instance as the matter Was
not placed, before the government in
a manner which will warrant the
blame resting upon him.
Briefly, the eause tor complaint is
tbis. In the assumption that if the
terms ot the liquor licence act were
complied with, they would obtain a
licence in due course, Messrs. Nicht Is
and Warkup, two hotel men, built
the Empress Hotel, at the comer ot
Fourth Street and Hamilton Avenue,,
st a cost of aboui $26,000.00 Tbey
bave applied tor a licence in regular
form, and hate been refused.
The town ls badly in need of h6tel
accommodation, and fa view of the
exceedingly heavy traffic which majr
be expected here this summer the'
decision appears grotesque. '
INDIAN OUTLAWS NOW ON
TRIAL AT KAMLOOPS
The preliminary hearing of the notorious Indian outlaws, Moses Paul
and Paul Spintlum, who were surrendered to the law some weeks ago
as a result of the co-operation ot th''
Indian chiefs, and who* are charged
with three separate murders, the last
being that of Provincial Constable
Kindness while engaged in their pursuit was set for Wednesday last at
Kamloops, where all details of the
several tragedies will be gone into.
The provincial police have, since
the surrender ot the prisoners, been
industriously engaged in collecting
and systematizing the various scraps
of evidence, tbis work, as the pursuit, is in charge ol Chief Constables
Burr, Fernie and Forsythe all of
whom will be in attendance at the
preliminary hearing. v
This will be before Mr. E. T. W.
Pearse, government agent, at Kamloops, the crown being specially represented by Mr. A. H. MacneiU, K.
C, of Vancouver, while Mr. A. D.
Taylor, of Vancouver, has' been retained . to represent both prisoners.
Tbe case for the crown is largely
circumstantial and is not so strong
as the authorities would have desired, being based chiefly upon the
wanton shooting down ot Constable
Kindness while he was courageously
engaged in the discharge ot his duty.
The work on the Indian'reserve has
begun by the putting in ot cribbings
along the shore to protect tbe grade.
Plans tor the .construction oi the
new Indian .village on .Reserve No.- 2,
in the Goose country, have'been accepted. These'plans were executed by
Mr. John Bronger, a local archetict.
The steamboat captains engaged in
the navigation of these inland watera
are beginning to wend .their way
north again to get their sternwheel-
ers in shape for launching .-about, the
first of May.1: The personnel ot the

GOVERNMENT OFFERS   .
TIMBER FOR SALE
The government's new plan for the
sale ot timber lands is a good one.
It is now being' applied in the sale
ot timber lands along tbe Fraser
• iver between here and Tate Jaune.
The circulars, sent to ' interested
parties contain Information as follows: The timber ottered, for.sale ls
within three miles of the Grand
Trunk Pacific main line from the,
Yellowhead'Pass to Fort George. It
is within easy reach of one of the]
best markets for lumber fa Canada.'
The freight rate for lumber trom
Tete Jaune to Edmonton is 25cts.
Per cwt. The government is prepared
to sell any amount from'1,000,000 to
•■00,000,000 feet ot green merchantable
timber. Tbey will also sell 6,000,000
feet ot timber fire-killed in 1912. This
timber will, be, ottered for sale in
quantities to suit prospective purchasers. Blue prints are furnished to
interested parties of the sections in
which they are interestd.
Contractor Harry Carlton', who is
building th'« grade from the bridge
crossing «toKthe Fraser -Km*-lor.21
miles westward has already established his camps, A gang of his men
we at work at ths mouth of the
Mud river.
There is wagered a considerable
amount Of money upon the different
opinions 'oi people as to when the
steel will reach .this place from up-
rive/. The contractors are the men
in the best position to judge' tbis
m«tter, and we have "heard them express opinions to the effect that the
line will have reached a' point opposite Prince George by this time next
year. This ls in ,11ns with the wafr*
we have the matter sized up. Steel
should be inf to Prince Oeorge be--
lose navigation opens nht spring.
Contractor George Hardie, who', in
addition to his right-of-way contract
is in charge ot the building of the
docks and warehouses on the railroad
townsite, is now having a site tor
the temporary camps cleared and tbe
preparations made for the building
of tbe docks and also the construction of Messrs,) Foley, Welch and
Stewart's headquarters. Tbe site for
this building has been chosen on the
high land behind the low flat that
the wharves are to tront. These, offices are practically a replica ot those
at present occupied by the .headquarters camp up river. The building will
go up on the brow ot the hill overlooking the river, at the head of
Lot 1511, better known as Peden's
island. This island, sold by the owner, Mr. Bussel Peden, to Messrs.
Williams & Murdoff, of Vancouver,
has been acquired by ths railway
company and will be used for trackage. It is planned to fill the sloughs
between the islands, and convert the
by-channels of the Nechaco river
into the main. channel. Material
tracks from the cuts to the west,
will run over the islands in a loop,
and will dump the material from the
cuts as outlined. The docks will not
be ot pile construction, but these will
be built out from tbe mainland by
stone-fllled cribbings behind' which
the material trains will make land.
A large number of men are already
at work, and the force will be augmented as the work goes forward.
EDMONTON WHOLESALERS
ARE KEEPING INFORMED
Mr. A.G. Hamilton, accompanied
by Mr. Wiggins, art" leaving Ashcroft today for this place.   *
Grading camps for Grand Trunk
contractors have been established at
Fort Fraser and there are at present
abont fifty men at work building
houses and bringing in supplies tor
the season's work. It is the intention of the contractors to work Iff
both directions from- Fort Fraser
camps.
The Board of Trade council of the
city of Edmonton on the investigation of the Tete Jaune route (or use
of representatives of Edmonton
houses getting through to Fort
George find that tbis gateway is not
practicable until the opening of navigation on the Fraser river, says ths
Edmonton Capital oi recent date.
The commercial men will have to
go through by way of Ashcroft on
the C. P. R. as they have been doing
heretofore. The secretary has obtained considerable information in regard
to the business possibilities of Fort'
George and has a list of all the
places of business there, which is
available to any member of the
board who are interested.
The i'lea has been prevalent among
Edmontonians in general tbat this
city was not making a very creditable effort to capture the Fort
George trade, but the secretary of
the board assures the people through
the press that tbe business firms have
been alive to the situation for more
than a year,past and many of these
houses have maintained representatives at Fort George for the past
twelve months or more. As the place
grows in importance other representative concerns will: have men on the
ground to look after the trade and
in a tew years it will be found tbat
the mercantile interests of this city
are being well founded in the Fort
George district.

SHERIDAN DEFEATS SAVOY IN SECONDROUND
The, boxing match held in ths Fort
George Theatre last Monday evening,
•Bt. Patrick's Day, will long be remembered amongst th* sporting fraternity of the north,as a great event
in their annals, and one which ^Ul
never again be duplicated.
Owing to the heavy, snowfall the
house was not as large by halt as it
would have been had the me» from
the Jur**rlver wu^ps*.' been able to at-
.tend the match without the, necessary discomforts ot the trip oyejf the
snow-bound trails. In spite of "thla.
bower, the attendance from lodtside
points was large, aiid the audience
nearly tilled the big theatre when
time was called at 9 p. m.   I
There were present at the match
every follower of sport from- far and
n«r,Jand excitement ran higher than
at any other event of a similar nature that the writer has ever attended.  •"-"   • .'•:.., 4,7J
The - preliminary event, between
George Allan and Ed. LeBranch, both
of Fort George,, was a strong six-
round-bout. Both min fought-hard,
but neither, showed signs] of much'
punishment, when the gong sounded
at the end of ths sixth rpund. Ths
decision Was a draw.        , ■'
The main event wm preceded by
an announcement at ths 'request of
Mr. Sheridan, to 'the' sfle^t *tnat the
match would-constitute Ms j first and
last appearance in the ring in this
section. The announcement wfs fur-,
ther made that SherioW •gWrnmat**'
eur champion of the United States
in the 1581b class. This'statement
seemed to arouse amusement amongst
those < who ,had never/take^ the trou-
Me, to look UP hfs'cllin) to .tt|isv
title. Mr. Sheridan, as a' raattar of
fact, won tliis    title in 'Boston on
April tbe 9th. last year, when boxing
in competition ' with tht' amateur
champion of the States ot the Union
tor the championship.
Both men took their places at the
sound of the gong. SaVoy smiled at
his supporters and took his place
near the men trom Fort George.
Sheridan had his hands bandaged in
ths ring. Op tbe call of time both
men advanced warily, Savoy slightly
crouched. The Fort George boxer
opened tht round strongly on the
offensive, seeking to land one of bis
terrific swings on Sheridan. Sheridan
blocked the heavy blows cleverly tor
the first minute then commenced to
lead himself. In the middle of the
second round Sheridan first gave a
showing of bis marvellous speed and
style. His foot work was easy and
graceful and his fighting poise was
perfection. Fighting with his syes
watching Savoy's teet Sheridan landed a succession ot terrific right and
Isft straight punches to j Savoy's
bead. He never swung, using straight
punches With the weight of his body
behind the bolws with terrific effect.
The Gpng rang with Savoy on the
ropes. The rou'nU was all Sheridan's.
In the second round, wblcb.ended
the tontest,, Savoy came; up gamely
again and endeavored to land one ot
his terrific swings. Barry in this
found the excitement rose to a feverish pitch, when Sheridan, miscalculating his defence of a right swing,
was knocked to his knees for a second, and or rising warily met the
terrific Jettack of -Savoy by covering
cleverly. In breaking •"•y from this
attack Sheridan stalled hoping to
lure his opponent into rushing him,
then changing bis tactljes he forced
ths fighting all over the ring! It was
apparent early In ths first round thut
Savoy Was badly outclassed, but the
forced fighting in the second round
showed Sheridan's style and heavy
execution to the best advantage.
Savoy fought gamely. The five ounce
gloves had cut his face a little, but
it was not until Sheridan landed a
terrible lett under the heart that
the end of the fight loomed up. This
blow left Savoy banging on the ropes
whilst Referee Fred Lucas counted
bim out. After tbat punch it was
good-night.
Sheridan did not show a scratch
after the contest was over, and beyond swollen lips and a bad eye Savoy appeared little the worse for the
tray.
Following is a statement of the
receipts and expenditures in the contest:
Total gate receipts 9862.00

Savoy,   training exs  160.00

CONTRACTORS BUSY
ON 1STERN END
Superintendent Sheppard Arrives
Back in Hazelton After Long
Trip to This Place Over
the Wagon Road.
Referring to the recent inspection
tour of the G. T. P. line and grade
the "Omineca Herald", published at
Hazelton, says:
Supt. J. C. Sheppard and D. A.
Rankin arrived in town on Tuesday
night, after a trip to Fort George ln
company with J. W. Stewart and J.
L. Retail ick. These tour railroad men
made the first trip from New Hazelton to Fort George, driving the entire distance, that has ever been
made. The distance is three hundred
miles and they made it in Just six
days. Mr. Rankin and Mr. Retallick
arrived first aud the other two were
immediately behind them. An average of 50 miles a day Ib some travelling with a team, but the distance
was covered in spite of a runaway
which occurred the second d^y cut.
The weather was fine all the time
and the sleighing was the best; Two
or three days were a little cold but
no one suffered any discomfort. Mr.
Stewart was particularly interested
in the work being done along the
grade, and this was his first trip
over the country lying between the
east and west end of the contract.
On the other side ot Burns Lake
there is not much work being dons
and 4here will not be a great many
men employed until tbe rails are extended at least a hundred miles beyond this town. For tbe most, part
the work beyond Burns Lake is light
and will be finished as soon as ths
heavy rock work and the big fills at
Burns Lake. Just this slds of Fort
Fraser John Bostrom has a camp
and he now has his steam shovel
working there. The rest of ths contractors will get busy in the summsr
after navigation opens and the rails
carry the supplies up to the summit
or beyond.

Most of the ministers of the McBride government are strong
men—but they are not diplomatic. There is little room for argument. Politics have apparently not progressed far enough in
British Columbia to allow the fine art of diplomacy to soften the
adverse judgment in cases of the refusal of public requests. In
assured positions of vast authority some of the heads of departments in Victoria seem to ignore the inevitable results which
must obtain from their actions, which, presumably are justified,
when important public requests are dealt with by them through
the issue of sterotyped refusal with no further explanation in
justification of the attitude taken than that invaluable old
aphorism "IT IS NOT CONSIDERED IN THE PUBLIC INTEREST."
We believe that in the case of the refusal of the licence to the
Empress Hctel here under the time-honored phrase, that the
Attorney-General's department must be moved by strong motives,
before such a decision would be arrived at in a case which
presents such an exactly opposite view to that which the government advance as their excuse for the refusal. Here is a town
300 miles from a railway which is on the verge of being invaded
by a vast army of people of all classes following the construction
of the Grand Trunk Pacific railway, and the great development
which this vast undertaking brings to this favored spot. Accommodation in the town is at present hard to obtain, and when navigation opens this condition will be acutely felt. How then can it
be advanced as an excuse that "it is not in the public interest"
to grant a licence to a hotel, built at a large expenditure, when
the statement will pass without contradiction that without a licence
the house must necessarily be a losing proposition.
It would indeed be unfortunate for a popular, elective, partizan
government having attained such a measure of strength and justified intrepidity as that possessed by the McBride administration
in British Columbia, were the grievances which arise between the
constituents throughout the land and the departments of the
government allowed to fester through want of attention. That
dftimes these grievances, growing out of treatment which must
bs construed as discrimination or badly conceived decisions in the
circumstances, must awaken impulses in the electorate which
have a serious and destructive effect upon the confidence of the
masses towards the administration, as the inevitable result of
such unsettled grievances, and it is in view of circumstances
whhh ccn'orm to this condition that The Herald offers the above
criticism of a ch in of event which have led to much open comment upon the attitude of our members, and of the government,
in the public meeting of the South Fort George Conservative Association.
That South Fort George is to have an hospital of its own ii at
lut assured, and it is not strange in this essentially western town
that the movement for this important adjunct to our development
finds its inception in the presentation of the purse won by the
clever amateur boxer, Mr. Arthur Sheridan, towards tbis worthy
cause. Appreciating the gift of the man whose exhibition of
wonderful skill in the roped square aroused the enthusiasm of
every man who attended the contest last Monday evening, two
public spirited citizens have come to the front with contributions
of duplicate amount to the purse presented by Mr. Sheridan.
It is unnecessary to dwell upon the necessity of an hospital
here. Every day there are sick men seeking to regain their
health in the hotels and bunk houses of the town, where proper
attention and hygienic surroundings can not be secured, and where
the spread of infection in the case of any infection goes unhampered
The Herald has started a subscription list to immediately collect
a sufficient sum to enable the enterprise to go forward without
hindrance.'
THE COAST PRESS

Bob Edwards Scores the Vancouver  Papers   for   Assisting
Wild-Catters  in   There
Promotions.
Every project of any account in
Vanvouver, with a few rare exceptions, is started on a shoestring, declares Bob Bdwara in the Calgary
Bye Opener. There is more con work,
scheming, tour-flushing, and bogus
promoting In Vancouver than there
ls in any city in Canada. In worthless floatations the promoting fraternity are ably assisted by several
local newspapers which are conducted by men who are only too willing
to sacrifice the public and help rob
their own citizens, provided they
"get their bit" out of lt through
the medium of lavish advertisments
ud misleading write-ups, payment
for the latter usually being included
In the terms of the advertising contract. Vancouver, however, ln spite
ot this undesirable class, is destined
to become a great city. There can be
absolutely no doubt about this. One
of her chief claims to tarns is that
she returns all Conservative members
to Legislature and Parliament. Dies
McBride has nothing to tear politically (rom Vancouver so long as the
Liberal cause is championed by such
weak and irresponsible journals as
tbe World and the Sun. These papers
have a talr telegraphic service, but
that lets them out. There also used
to be a grit weekly paper ln Vancouver called the Sunset, but it fell
flat somehow and never seemed to
quite catch on. It may be running
yet for all we know.
TO CURE THH WHITE PLAGUE

of the active department ot Public
Health, has transmitted to Dr. Prl-

science, a cordial Invitation to visit

We have received a number of enquiries recently regarding tbe town
site situation at   Willow River. To
these enquirers   we would say that
there iB little new at present.  Further preparations are now beins he-
gun on the   Orand Trunk townsite
there, by the clearing of another portion of the townsite. The Pacific and
Hudson Bay Railway are apparently
getting down to business, and it may
be expected that this road will have
survey*  parties in the    field in the
spring.    This railway   has reserved
lands in the Willow river townsite.
Borne time ago we stated, in answer
to an enquiry in these columns, that
the townsiles of the G. T. P. and of
thc Pacific Bond and Land Corporation were three miles apart. Our attention has been called to thc fact
that this was   an error. Tbe town-
sites, we find, are separated only by
one mile of tin-subdivided land. The
townsite    ot the    Pacific Bond and
Land Corporation ls on the Fraser
river at    the mouth- of the Willow.
The G. T. P. passenger station, on
tbelr townsite    is located about li
miles from the point of land .formed
by tbe confluence of .the Willow and
the Fraser rivers. Tbe railroad company's townsite    is level   and commands a fine    country. Both town-
sites will undoubtedly prosper if the
claims made by their* promoters ate
well founded.

NEW GOLD FIELDS
IN NORTHERN R. C.
Placer Fields m The Extreme
North of Province Causing
Rush to New Diggings
in British Columbia.
Old-time prospectors, now In' Vancouver, are anxiously awaiting from
former comrades some tangible confirmation ot the report ot the discovery of a new rich placer field on
Johnson and Silver creaks, approximately 30 miles north of Kablin
telegraph station, ln tbe extreme
northern part ot British Columbia.
Stirred by report ot the new field
many prospectors have already left
Seattle on the steamer Jefferson en
route to the gold-bearing field which
last September caused a spectacular
rush from Atlin.
Undeterred by the story of hardship ami privation suffered by. Perry
Delo, William. Swanson and Ernest
Ludwlck, who almost perished in a
daring attempt to.reach the diggings
in winter, the adventurers who left
Seattle hope to cross the expanse -of
frozen and snow-covered ground be**
tors all available claims in the region are staked by man already ln
the field.
Some Vancouver men, experienced
in placer mining stampedes, are skeptical lest the rush be mads In vain,
friends of "Johnson, alter whom
Johnson Orsek was named, Frank
Jackgon jBCk Pimng Mi John ^at.
son, prospectors, well known among
mining men, are now wondering why
no confirmation of the alleged find
»s been received Irom thsm.
working in the far north nectton for
several years, ana there is a general
belief that were they possessed of information confirming the story they
would notify their friends in Vancouver: Pilhng is rep0I.tea to hav<j
informed friends that no more is
known about the new field by men
on the ground than has become
known through the recent announcement of the field, by Skookum Jim,
and the part taken by Delo and his
companions in the midwinter stampede from Atlin.
Atlin was reposing in its winter
quiet when first report of the purported strike reached the recording
centre of the district through the
arrival of forty Teglin Indian trappers who recorded claims and then
quietly left the place without making
any display of gold recovered from
their claims. Tbe action of the trappers naturally aroused curiosity and
the white men began a hurried investigation They learned that Indians
along the Stikine river were talking
of a new gold strike, and that prospectors were pushing northward from
Telegraph Creek territory, following
rumors of a strike having been made
a little more .than a hundred miles
to the north.
Following the scanty information
gleaned from the rumors and the descriptions, filed .by the Indian trappers
of the Teslin and the Thaltan tribes,
Delo and his associates quickly gathered together a few supplies and
pushed eastward to the creeks where
the Indians had staked their ground.
A few weeks ago Skookum Jim, of
Klondyke fame, reached Seattle in
search of qeorge Oarmack, his relative and old-time partner. They immediately began preparations for a
spring trip to the new field and are
amongst those who left Seattle recently. Wiiliam Berryv prospector,
who received a telegram from a partner at Atlin advising him that the
strike is richer than first reported,
hastened preparations to join bis associate. Although the reports of the
trip of Delo and his comrades who
left Atlin December 22 and reached
the new district January 4th., Indicated that a great number ol claims
had been staked, old-timers believe
■-here yet is time to participate ln
the first "outside" rush.
<* Already old-timers in Vancouver
ire considering ths best and quick-
"st Way to reach Nahlin. The general opinion prevails that outfitting at
\tlin does not Offer the most satls-
'actory plan, as persons desiring to
-make the journey can .outfit In Vancouver and Journey by steamer' to
Wrangel. Although the Ice does not
oermtt * of Hudson's Bay Company
steamer traffic on the Stikine river.
Indian freighters are available, and
it 1b considered possible that Telegraph Creek can be reached In about
three days. By travelling at night
and taking advantage ol the frost
it ls said, the northern bike to Nahlin could be made in approximately
tour days. From this point it is considered to be a journey ol two days
or' less to the new diggings.
What We Have We Hold
FORT FRASER/Central British Columbia, has the ideal      '
townsite" location on the entire line of the Grand Trunk
Pacific Railway in British Columbia.      :      :      :      :
It has also many natural resources"and advantages not possessed by other townsites.
It has a sparkling lake of fifty square miles of fresh water. Tremendous hydroelectric
power being developed at it's very door. The largest tract of agricultural land to be found
in British Columbia. A healthful and ideal climate both summer and winter. One thousand
miles of navigable waters reach to and from Fort Fraser.
These Are Advantages Which Cannot be Taken Away
Again, it is a^natural distributing centre for a vast territory, and with the incoming of the
Grand* Trunk Pacific, Pacificjfi Hudson Bay Railway and other.contemplated lines,, its future
as one of the coming cities of Western Canada is assured,
FORT  FRASER
is already a good lively town with Government office, telegraph office, postoffice and various
lines of trade already established th&e.
Lots can be obtained at from $200.00 upwards with cash deposit of 10 per cent, cash, and
5 per cent, monthly without interest or taxes.

system Inaugurated by this province
last year was reported to have proven generally satisfactory and will
continue this season with slight variations where large bodies ot timber
Justify more thorough patrol. Last
year every mile of right-of-way was
inspected by the provincial officers
and the regulations strictly enforced
to guarantee the safety ot near forests and due payment of royalty tor
timber cut on crown landsi The work
of inspection Is pecullary onerous ln
connection with construction operations and, on the whole the provincial
officers have been well supported by
the railway companies. The .rule has
been laid down that everything cut
without permit is considered to constitute a trespass, and where timber
Is cut'With or without permit, the
brush must be properly disposed ot
without delay. The system of handling this inspection work on all
lines under provincial jurisdiction
and, control is to have it performed
by the provincial officials and the
cost collected from the railway companies. In the case of the Grand
Trunk Pacific (a Dominion-controlled
undertaking) the company bat been
paying one-half of the fire protection
costs, and this arrangement, the
company's, representative ttated in
tht Winnipeg convention, they art
willing and anxious to continue,

About twelve Inches ct snow fell
here this week, after the break-up
had already well begun. The temperature during tbe week frequently
fell below the zero mark during tbe
hours ot nlfbt. This condition, however, has Its advantages, as it will
serve to assist transportation on
the rivers and lakes. This, surely,
may be written as the last lingering
touch ot winter.
Active preparations are being made
for the presentation of an amateur
minstrel show, ln aid of the South
Fort George Fire Department,

WILLOW RIVER
BRITISH COLUMBIA
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 ai 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 '
buiiness or investment standpoint.  Willow Rivel* property
has been purchased by merchants and investors throughout.
Canada and United States.    Although thi town was only;
established October 16th, 1912, 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—(he' survey of tht
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 ih the busmen
portion at the original prices.    Easy Terms.    No Interest.
Clear and perfect title direct from the Grand Trunk Pacific
Railway.   The Original and Official Townsite of Willow River
it located oh Lot 786; Station Site approved by the Board of
Railway Commissioners March 26th, 1912,! Order No. 16179.
