£UKT GEORGE HERALD
We solicit   enquiry on all
such matters.
VOLUME 1,   NO. 71
SOUTH   FORT   GEORGE,   B.C.,   JANUARY
13th., 19 12
$3  DOLLARS  PER ANNUM
CITY AND DISTRICT
Mr. L. G. McHaffie, the popular manager of the Hunk of 15.
N. A. here, who, with Mrs, Moll aflie is spending a tour months
holiday in Europe, was last
heard from in Rome. Ho will
leu " for New York on his way
back home shortly, via London
England.
Beautiful place, Rome. Pull
of catacombs, cathedrals, piazzas, big stone walls, Forums,
and macorini factories. The city
was founded by a gentleman
named Romulus in the year
753 B. C. Then in 390 IJ. G, we
find that the city was destroyed by Gauls, which unwarrantable action probably led to the
association of their name with
"nervy" stunts to this day.
The history of Rome is full of
blue fire, silk togas and bubbley
vintages. There was Mark Anthony, who fell for Cleopatra, a
famous peach (hence thu term
"easy mark") and later Nero,
who lit up the town that he
might keep warm whilst tickling a hittrp, and many short-
term kings, princes and governors filling in. It takes a man
who has seen South Fort
George in its early days to appreciate Rome.
AN "INSTALLMENT PLAN" POSTAL SERVICE.
here from the   south last Saturday, there were twelve sacks
of mail  aboard.  Pour of these
were addressed to   South Port
George, eight to   Port George,
the Natural Resourees Security
| Company's townsite up the Ne-
jchaco River.  The  mail addressed to Soutii Port George was
i sorted in the local office by Sat-
urday evening, affording an opportunity of answering import-
j ant mail before the mail closed
| on Sunday. On Tuesday after-
; noon, three days   after the ar-
| rival, and one day after the de-
I parture of the stage, four sacks
of mail which had been carried
six miles beyond    tlwir destination   were   returned    to this
office, for which   they were intended. Simple addition shows
that this town received exactly
two   thirds of    the mail. It is
a distinctly unique state of affairs when the Canadian postal
authorities botch    up their delivery system in such a manner
The mail stage arrived here
yesterday, one day ahead of its
schedule time with three passengers, Father Cocila and Mes-
sers. Moore and Le Sueur, the
traffic manager and chief accountant of the B. C. Express
Company, res|ieet.ively. Mr.
Moore states that the company
is anticipating a busy season
next summer, and are making
adequate preparations for it.
Machinery for the company's
new boat is now on tho way to
Soda Creek and work will go
forward immediately after its
arrival. Mr. LeSueur recently
accepted the position vacated
by Use.retirement of Mr. Curry.
He appears to he impressed
with the future of this place
and will undoubtedly strive to
perfect the service of the express company as far as possible.
When the mail stage arrived that one third of the people's
mail is carried six miles beyond
its proper destination, or, to
compute the thing statistically,
for the governmental policy on
political economy, 312 miles
per year !
This is the result of the Postal Department re-adopting a
system of delivery here that disgraces the service, reflects upon
the intelligence of the officials
responsible, and subjects over
two-thirds of the entire population of the Port George section to the effects of nn outrageous display of red-tape
adsurdity.
Not alone in Canada but in
every country under the blue
skies of heaven the postal officials strive to the best of their
knowledge and ability, to execute the business of their department in such a manner that
the mails entrusted to their care
reach their destination with as
little delay as possible. It may
therefore reasonably be antioip-
portation, but rely almost entirely upon the mail service to
link tlkeni with the supply centres of the world outside.
These are the facts of the case:
There are two separate towns
near the junction of the Fraser
and Nechaco rivers, South
Port (leorge on thie banks of
the Fraser, Fort George, some
three miles up the Nechaco, a
tributary of the Fraser. There
are about two hundred people
in South Fort George and seventy on the Nechaco townsites,
an area of about 20,000 lots.
Part of the Nechaco townsites
was registered under tha name
"Port George" by the man who
townsited the land. The place
has no moral right to the use
of the name, which was given
to the Hudson's Bay post here
by Simon Fraser 104 years ago.
It was usurped by speculators,
who protect it by registration,
in the same manner as a quack
doctor would copyright a
catchy name for pink pills. The
to thc importance of their vast
lot-maze by "working" their
purchased title to kidnap public
priveleges. In (lie instance which
effects the mail service to the
large majority of the public
here, we find tbat after receiving a post office, to which they
are certainly ent il led, they are
not content to see all mail sorted here, hut prevail upon the
Postoffice Inspector lo have tho
mail sorted into separate sacks
at Ashcroft, with the alarming
result of receiving all mail addressed to "Fort (leorge" but
intended to reach this place, by
people who are not aware that
without nice discrimination in
this matter of address .to a
place they know generally as
"Fort George" (heir mail will
float around tlie local landscape
until it finally reaches its real
desi ination,
The remedy for this deplorable state of affairs is not far
to seek. If all mail intended for
these two points were sorted in
ated that this fixed and com- promoters of the Fort George |the South Fort George 1'ost-
inendable principle of postal- townsite seek in every way' office the difficulty would be

ABOUT THE FORT GEORGE HOARD OF TRADE .   .
Advices from Tete Jaune
Cache report that the contractors are rushing supplies in over
the ice of the Fraser River and
its headwaters. Over one thousand teams are hauling to the
great 100-foot warehouses that
have been built on the banks of
the Fraser at the furthest point
accessible by steamboat. Tha
blind-pig element are being diligently hunted to earth by
Covernnient Agent John Kirk-
upp and his police, lt is stated
that booze is as rare as diamonds at the Cache now.
W. J, Mackay. late of Tk>
Herald, is now sojourning in
the ('astern states. We are wondering just how long "Mac."
will camp in the effete belt. He
is an old timer in B. C. and we
know of few exceptions to the
rule of old-timers out west that
go east. They all come back.
A young man named Hunder-
day was brought into town this
week with his feet frozen badly.
He was out on a moose hunt
with a companion and froze his
feet whilst travelling on the
Feasor near the (irand Canyon.
Fortunately he took immediate
steps to protect himself and
thawed his feet out in ice
water. He was brought down
°n a toboggan. He will lose one
too. Hunderday is a pre-emptor
holding hind across the Nechaco river.
Have Hoy, the well known
rancher of Milne's Landing, in
the Nechaco Valley, arrived in
town this week with a load of
freight. Mr. Hoy has arranged
to take in a large consignment
f»r Hamilton k Williamson's
store at Stewart Lake.
A young man,   who was until lately townsite manager and
general utility man for George
J. Hammond,    townsite    promoter and president of that all-
star cast of     lot-peddlers, the
Natural Resources Security Co.
Ltd., of Vancouver,   conceived
the idea of securing for the few
denizens of   Hammond's   Fort
George townsite,     a Dominion
government charter for a "Port
fioorgo Board ol"   Trade"—and
got it; doubtless    through the
efforts of Mr. Hammond's legal
talent. The   Herald    editor is
I not sufficiently conversant with
j the law governing thie issuance
! of Board of Trade charters to
i dwell with authority upon tho
' subject, but   there   are condit-
j ions involved   in the   instance
! referred to, which, when regarded analytically,   point   to  the
[ fact that the   government  has
either been induced, by misleading representations, into grant-
| ing a charter to a handfull of
: people on a    remote townsite,
which charter must necessarily
embrace a large adjacent urea
as a population of fifteen hundred must lie contained within
tliie   confines    of  the   Board's
isphere of activity, whereas the
population   on   the   20,000-lot
' townsite to which   the charter
was granted    does not   exceed
seventy-five people at a liberal
estimate,  or   else    tho charter
was granted upon  application,
j regardless of what the consen-
; sus of opinion upon such action
would lie within the prescribed
boundaries    embraced   in     the
charter. In either case the den-
oeument remains unaltered. The
business centre    and  the large
majority of the population buru
i have boon    ignored altogether,
I and a public privelege usurped
by a one-man town on the outskirts of the city proper, South
| Fort Georgo.
So much for the Fort Oeorge
; Board of Trade. As to whether
any action    will be    taken to
iquestion tine    eligibility of the
I townsite that has the charter,
the Herald is not at present in
a position to    say.  Regarding
{the aims of this corporate body
however, wo wish to dwell for
a few brief moments. It is ap-
I parent   from those    records of
i their proceedings which appear
in tho columns of Geo, J, Hammond's   townsite    organ, that
thoir mission    amongst things
nnilmnte is to establish a degree
of confidence    in tha   Natural
Resources Security   Company's
townsite at   long range.   They
I also use their legalized "public
service" veneer to hand out
censorious balderdash in the
guise of righteous indignation,
levelled at the few newspapers
which have had sufficiebt principle to denounce the rotten
promotion methods resorted to
by Mr. Hammond's company,in
in exploiting the Nechaco River
townsites. Unquestionably The
Herald is one of the main irritants to compenstate which
the "board" adopted a resolution at a recent meeting which
read, in part, as follows:
"WHEREAS certain news-
ers and periodicals in British
Columbia and elsewhere have
heretofore and are still publishing articles tending strongly to
depreciate the natural advantages and physical resources of
Central British Columbia, and
particulary of the district of
Fort George, belittling the possibilities of future growth and
development, and reflecting generally and indiscriminately
upon the various business,
townsite and development enterprises here located:"
The resolution then continues
to tell that violent criticism is
harmful. That it scares the general public, and brings into disrepute the character of those engaged in development work. It
proceeds to state that after
careful personal investigation
the members of the board have
chosen the place for their homes
and invested their capital in the
Fort George townsite and have
great confidence in its future
and faith in the character of
the individuals engaged in its
development. It then states that
the members of the board are
aware that in every community
there are bound to spring up
business enterprises and schemes
which seek to succeed by the
use of fraudulent methods,
they feel that this district has
beeii free from the "curse of such
evils." They thoy resolve as follows:
"RESOLVED that we hereby
most heartily Condemn and deplore the wholesale and unwarranted criticism aforesaid,
whether arising from ignorance
mistaken motives or any other
source whatsoever, and we
further protest most strongly
against the continued publication of articles which by disregard for the truth and reck-
I less and unverified assertions
I are bringing upon this entire
community undoserved discredit
and disrepute, and hereby urge
upon pros|iective homeseekors
and investors th." desirability in
every instance of personal investigation of the advantages,
opportunities and conditions
here previling, regardless of
newspaper or other comment,
favorable or unfavorable."   .
We are inured tc the claptrap work of the promoter and
his supporting element and this
sort of piffle passes' unheeded.
Yet Mr. Hammond's organ,
masquerading in the guise of
a lone independent northern
newspaper reaches the longdistance crowd and bolsters
their flagging faith. To counter
the terrible blow aimed at us
in the ambiguous censorship of
the Hammondville Board of
Trade, we must glance for a
few brief moments into the retrospect. Those that are familiar
with the past policy of the Natural Resources Company's promoting method, or who have
read what The Herald has had
to say regarding it, knows that
their offence has been largely
misrepresentation of facts. The
Herald, being a sublimely independent organ, told thie truth
about the proposition, and
brought the avenging minions
crowding about our portcullis
charged to put us out of commission, but failing this, certain
newspaper prostitutes in Vancouver and Winnipeg were induced to publish articles supporting the promoter's cause.
To retaliate we came out into
the open ttnd told the public
that investigation of the pro-
motor's past revealed the fact
that he had been mixed up in
get-rich-quick schemes of great
magnitude on previous occasions, and that his name had appeared in public print in such
manner that we were very well
justified in advising tho investing public to accept this additional support of our contentions regarding the Fort George
townsite. On November the Ilth., some of his legal talent,
—well chosen indeed—Messrs.
Taylor & Harvey, wrote us a
long legal letter, full of terrible threats of criminal and
civil libel suits, and inspired by
that wolf of the courts S. S.
Taylor. It was terrible. It wove
visions, of granite cells, steel
bars, very dry bread and
"skilly." However, having acted throughout only in tho best
interests of th) public, and
being in a position to prove the
truth of our statements we in
vited Mr. Hammond to proceed
with his plan which had for its
ultimate aim the landing of the
Horald editor   in durance vile.
Mr. Hammond's suit against
us suggested the possibility of
a case of mistaken identity ill
referring to him as the
man whose career as a bucket-
shop shark in Chicago we had
referred to, in support of our
assumption that he was the
same man who was promoting
the Fort George townsite. Since
receiving the letter, however,
the course of our investigation
has led into channels of evidence which prove to our own
satisfaction that our well justified assumption appears to be
correct regarding Mr.. Hammond. Cinder these circumstances, and knowing tlmt Geo.
.). Hammond had gone to the
; trouble of invoking the law to
keep up appearances we fail to
| see why the Port Goorge Board
of Trade should place itself on
record tis a body opposed to tiie
sifting of the unsettled Port
(leorge controversy; for this is
i the apparent object of the res-
olution, as it is aimed to apply to this paper. When a group
of citizens, formed into a public
body stoop to exert their
corporate influence to mold
public opinion against the grain
of honesty their folly is indeed
abnormal.
