(Special to The Herald   from'Victoria
Correspondent).
Negotiations   which   have  been   fulsome time in progress and which  concerns the governments of  British Columbia,  the   Dominion of Canada and
the United States of America-and less
directly lhe   Imperial   government   of
Great Britain also-have   so   far   progressed during the   pest   few   months
thnt public men in close touch with the
important project   which   is their subject, feel themselves   justified   in predicting that half   a   decade  hence will
witness the completion of direct allien communication between the isthmus of Panama and the Canal and   the
distant territory of Alaska, this   great
North and South Arterial  Highway of I
the Pacific Coast being the longest con-1
tinuous railway on the American conti-1
nent and destined to become  a  factor |
of incalculable importance, not only  in
the expansion  of  international Pacific
Coast commerce but also of continent-
•I defence.    Numerous  great  railway
systems  already   span   the  continent ]
from east  to   west.   This,   however,
will be the first to find a place  in  history as a  transcontinental   north   and,
south highway, the utility of and  the
necessity for which   are   already conceded by the progressive and far-sighted public men of two important neighbor countries.    The   Panama-Rritish- i
Columbia-Alaska through line  has  for'
some time past occupied   a prominent I
place in the policy of provincial   devel- i
opments by means of railway construe-1
tion enunciated and now  being carried j
into full effect by the Prime  Minister!
of British Columbia,   Sir Richard  Mc- j
Bride K.C.M.G., and  may  indeed be I
looked upon as the climacteric  feature |
of that policy.    It  is  to Sir Richard's j
credit also that   his   government  his'
has taken the  initial   very practical

important transportation  project  into
t_ actuality, since   the Pacific Great
ostein Railway, now  being  rapidly

northerly and easterly to Fort George,
the hub of the  Cariboo district, must
necessarily constitute an important sec-

will greatly assist local development in
Alaska, through railway media, without connection to the south such devel-
opment can only continue within a very
circumstantial zone. To build from
the Pence River to Alaska will call for
an investment of from forty t» sixty
millions. My plan is to have the Ottawa and Washington governments guarantee company bonds sufficient to carry
out the work and enter into an agreement with the Pacific Great Eastern
Railway Company for the construction
and operation of the line.
''The road can be projected through
a country of splendid potentialities, a
country thoroughly adapted for success-'

development, apart altogether from its
great scenic, tourist attracting and
sport values, and altogether   this   line I
is being accomplished, according to
Mr. F. E. Chamberlain, who has lately
inspected that section of the line, and
is in Vancouver for a few days. Mr.
Chamberlain is a brother of the president of the Grand Trunk Pacific, and
has had supervision of construction of
the new road in British Columbia during the past two years.
He says that the rails will reach
Smithers by the last nf this month.
Chamberlain expresses the belief that
that place will become an important
centre. The railway company, he says
will expend two hundred and fifty
thousand dollars in improvements there
to facilitate the handling of therailway
busiuess at this division point, and
eight miles of track and sidings will be
laid in the Smithers yards.

Trust Company's Vancouver branch,
is registered at the Hotel Northern.
Mr. Dwyer is looking over the ground
here preliminary to opening a branch
of the Dominion Trust in South Port
George.
In  an  interview    with The Herald
i Mr. Dwyer stated that the Dominion
; Trust Company  was greatly interes-
I ted in this territory. The trust com-
i pany owns land on the Little Salmon
! river. D'pon receiving his report, siad
Mr. Dwydr, the company would formulate their plans for this section, and
he intimated that his report would
favor active participation in the
business of this section.
The Dominion Trust I ompany have

Mr.  Dwyer  will  perhaps  make  arrangements    with one   ot the   established   firms  here     to  represent  the
Dominion Trust Compaq until such
time as they open a branch.
After looking over the situation here this week, Mr. Domi-
nick Burns, manager of P.Burns
& Company's cold storage department in all the big packing
concern's branches, located the
site tor the cold storage plant to
be erected here at the foot of
Laselle Avenue, South Fort
George.
Mr. Burns arrived here on the
Steamboat B.X. on Tuesday last,
and will leave today for Vancouver.
The building which the company will immediately commence
to construct will be 36 x 80 feet,
and will have a capacity to handle about 800 carcasses of beef,

Speaking of South Fort George,
Mr. Burns remarked upon the
astonishing turn-over shown by
the local business houses, and
quoted the large business done
by his company's recently-established branch here as a demonstration.
The company's large new plant
in the city of Edmonton, he stated, was rapidly nearing completion, and would be in commission
about the end of August, This
plant has cost the company about
$400,000.
Speaking of the cost of their
larger packing plants and the
expense of their installation, Mr.
Burns cited the fact that the
cork, used in the installation of
their Vancouver plant, cost alone
$5000.
Mr. Burns speaks with assurance of the great future before
this place. South Fort George,
he believes, will form an important part of the greater town
which will grow up here with
the marketing of the G. T. P,
townsite.
The location of the Burns Cold
Storage plant at the foot of Laselle avenue is situated upon a
small piece of land which is not
included in the subdivision, and
the building will be partly on
the street, The consent of most
of the business interests were

the difficulty of securing a more
suitable location.

In tho Fort George District the effect of the "money
stringency" is perhaps felt less than in any part of British
Columbia. In spite of the fact that the " tightness" of
money offers many choice opportunities for investment in
cities where agreements-of-sale being sold at heavy discounts, the public having money to invest in these hard
times are attracted more by the building fortunes of
bright futures in new territory than by the distress of
solid city properties.
"Keep a cool head and avoid getting rattled."   This is
Mr. James J. Hill's advice to Canadians.   It is pretty
good advice.   Mr. Hill added:   "I know money is hard
to get, especially in the railroads; but everything will
come out all right."   Canadian Finance says its attitude
has always been one of conservative optimism, and it sees
no reason for changing it, although "a shade more emphasis upon the qualifying adjective is now in order, but
not to the weakening of the substantial."   The Canadian
Courier says:   "Every man who owns anything in Canada at the present time should hold on if he has to live
on porridge.   Yes, hang on.   Don't let the bank manager scare you.   Don't listen to the broker who advises
you to sell because the market will go lower.   Grip the
saddle with both knees and sit tight.   Don't be stampeded."   Yesterday we had a statement from Sir William Mackenzie, who, speaking of the outlook for the
coming Autumn, and the need of money to move the
crops said:   "The banks always seem to be able to scrape
together enough money for that.   I don't think the stringency will be so serious then anyway.   People are not so
eager to go into new enterprises now as they were some
time ago, and there is not much demand for money for
new projects.   The present tightness has been due largely to the great prosperity of the last few years, as it has
caused a great expansion in all lines of business and a
consequent heavy call for capital.   A slackening this year
should bring things back to normal."
What is the explanation of the present stringency? No
one knows. If anybody knew, there should not be any
stringency. Again quoting Mr. Hill: "What is the matter with Wall street anyway? Everybody is as blue as
indigo, and half the people do not know what they are
blue about." The New York Evening Post says: "At a
certain stage in any prolonged movement on the Stock
Exchange, whether up or down, the situation passes under
the control of physiological, rather than financial or industrial, influences. Facts and coolly matured conclusions cease to govern the market, or the attitude of individuals in regard to it."
"It is well known," said a man familiar with the subject the other day, "that Wall Street will get scared out
of its wits over night about nothing at all and fly to the
other extreme within twenty-four hours without any reason whatever." It is rank nonsense to think that the
bottom has gone out of things simply because a few people have worked themselves up into a semi-panic. Sir
Richard McBride, who is in a position to judge the trend
of events, is today the most optimistic man in British
Columbia. He expresses the opinion that it is only necessary for the people to exercise a little patience to witness
better times than ever.
The advent of the wholesaler marks an epoch in the
growth and development of the Fort George district. This
week we have reported the fact that two wholesale
houses will locate here permanently. We refer to P.
Burns & Co., who will stock cured meats, and Marshall,
Wells & Co., who are building their sample rooms here
and putting in a resident agent for their great hardware
house. These are signs of progress indeed. The business
of this country is now getting far beyond the stage where
it can be properly handled by the drummer and the distant wholesale house.
We are informed that the government has issued orders
preventing the closing of the Fraser river to navigation
by the installation of low level solid bridges at the various points above here where the crossings are made.
This is a natural procedure, yet it will undoubtedly delay
construction. This action will be remarked upon in railway circles, and it is to be hoped that the Pacific Great
Eastern will plan their bridges between this point and
Lillooet accordingly.

George, -Pardon the familiarity, but we know you so
We hear' with considerable pleasure, that you are visiting
well*   ui ,   *.-wn which, according to the contemporary press
Pear
this week the tow
of *e dayvZf
course,
to
ul all
have  "placed  on   the map."   We refer, of
Fort George, "the real Fort George," legally regis
fcity
, r ( ,a, tiiat, and in no way to be confused with the pre-
tous suburbs and jumping off  places where  the more
s.    "table element, against whom you have so kindly warned
ffoublic in your advertising matter, hang out.
With what assurance, George, may you step ashore upon your
I registered townsite and scale the heights of the river bank
[the fine level jackpine flat above.   There, upon the broad
es of legal registered townsite, you will gaze anew upon your
"cliwork.   Mark well the effects of your lavish expenditures,
■hich have resulted,  as previously stated, in "mapping" your
1     And as you stand, surrounded by the host of your friends
, feiio\v workers, listening to the reading of an illuminated
'rites, which wi" ■'0l-1Dtless dwell in fitting terms upon your
. rk as'empire builder and should exalt your efforts to vanquish and
, rcome the obstacles in the path of the legal registered townee ve can imagine the lump that will rise in your throat and
'mist that covers your vision as there is borne upon you the
ind thoughts and actions of these, your friends.
And speaking of obstacles, George, you will pardon a slight
■eference to the little unpleasantness between this journal and
brself.   Of course the matter is practically ended now, but the
ftermath 0f these affairs often lingers in the atmosphere.   We
[dniit that we were careless in referring to events which happened so long ago.   Those musty old matters are always so diffi-
lt to prove.   However, we suffered for our indiscretions, didn't
e, George?   We went short of cash too, which hindered things
nsiderably.   We have often thought that it must be splendid
ing to have lots of ready cash so that one may always be sure
success, and this instances forcibly the truth of that old adage
out it being more blessed to give than receive.
However, these things are gone by.     The  whole townsite
•oposition, with the various areas represented, now stands upon
,e threshold of culminative distinction.   With your far-seeing
idgment and vast experience in large affairs you will doubtless
able, after this visit, to intelligently forecast the exact trend
development as indicated by the pointing of straws here today.
e shall a\#iit with interest your statements of the situation as
eals to you, for the large publicity given to your opinions in
ese matters would appear to warrant a belief that you have
m, as always, a lot of "inside information" which we in our
e humdrum walk of life are deprived a knowledge of.   How
pressivp, in this connection, is that trite French aphorism,
'out le monde est sage aprtfe coupe."
[The clearing of the old Indian reserve, which lies in a 1366
jreblock to the east of your townsite, and which is being pre-
red for sale by the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway Company as
ir town of Prince George, will enable you to grasp the import
that beautiful piece of land as a future city site,   You will
btless recollect the fact that a considerable mass of your
pany's advertising literature placed the reader under the im-
ssion that much of the old Indian reserve was low swampy
not too well suited for townsite purposes.   Now that the
ole area is spread out to the uninterrupted view, we are sure
it you will appreciate its natural beauty and adaptability for
purposes of the G. T. P. Townsite and Development Com-
y,
|n referring to the subject of the station site on the Prince
fW townsite, we venture to suggest that you should carefully
-into the physical conditions of the two locations.   We
ler to the location as awarded in your favor and in favor of
fwu'lio have purchased your company's lots, and also the loca-
p chosen by the railway company's engineers and endorsed by
*e and independent interests as the most logical position for
station site.   The former bdng 3000 feet east of your town-
, antj the latter, to which  point an appeal to the Canadian
Flnet 's being made for its location, is 6000 feet from the same
jindary,   \ve are sure that on examination into the situation
1 W-U appreciate the statement that if the depot were forced
prnain where the Railway Commission located it without visit-
pe ground that it would actually militate against the advisa-
lfy of creating a divisional point on the G.T.P. system here.
l!' °* course, would hurt us all very much, especially your lot
Iters.
Ia*> we trespass upon your indulgence long enough to refer in
P brief words to the smaller town, from an acreage estimate
Ie tQwn of South Fort George. You of course know that
|ngst otne'' Proud boasts, South Fort George is the home of
I -Journal. The principal asset of South Fort George from the
I P°i-it of the investing public is found in the fact that it has
I alrnost entirely developed by the public at large.   We are

Mp\    . peop'e who have large experience in the rapid
western Canadian towns.   We do not wish to
'don oUr mparisons"-t-hey are always odious—but you will
^'tores in°Htm8 °Ut the fact that in sPite of your lavish ex-
Ftising 'egal re*?iste*'ed townsites, and your extravagant
ltures ^1(er:a,1llpaiKn• tlie newcomers and those seeking business
e 'ttiporta      * d° not Seem to aPPreciate y°ur ideas of the
Jces ean be * °f th°Se siteS' and ifc is alle^ed that many in"
hts made b Clted where' in spite of m09t generous induce-
y your coniipany to numbers of these newcomers,
and have established themselves in the inausiriai ana commercial
centre of the district, down here at South Fort George.
This seems to indicate that your townsites, while desirable in
part at some future date for residential purposes, cannot very
consistently be considered as a permanent business centre of any
material importance. Bearing this in mind, are not the prices
asked for the 25-foot lots in your townsite a little high? Take
Take Fraser Avenue property for instance. This avenue abuts
the western end of the Indian reserve. It will face the extremity
of the G. T. P. residential property, and the lots directly facing
avenue will be considerably wider than those on your
property. It is not to be reasonably supposed that this horizon
residential property on the G. T, P, townsite is going to bring
very large prices, and so how will the smaller lots which stretch
west from their area fare in the question of ultimate values, especially when this property has been represented as a "business
centre."
Yet we should worry !   Eh, George,
We note with interest that your advertising campaign is now
principally devoted, as regards Fort George, to attracting attention to the business openings there. This indicates that you are
looking for population. A bright idea, sir, and entirely worthy
of your constructive imagination. Population, that's what you
want in the legal registered townsites.
It is with much interest that we have observed your offering of
the "Fort George Heights" acreage. This indicates to us that
you have not gone out of the selling business in Fort George yet.
The name of Sir Charles Hibbert Tupper, K.C.M.G., K.C, as
trustee adds a lot of distinction to the proposition. We recollect
that the last advertising we received bearing upon this property
came under the name of the British Columbia Estates, and bore
a facsimile letter over your own signature, dated August, 1912,
which stated that after a personal inspection of the land you
found it, if properly laid out "a 'homesite' subdivision equal to
anything on the continent." The fact that you are now handling
the property for sale would indicate that your faith in the property is still unshaken, and we have no doubt that you will be
more successful, with your training and experience in disposing
of these homesites to the dear public than the B. C. Estates have
been.
Bearing for a moment upon purely local affairs, George, you
will pardon us if we criticise for a moment the organization which
either actively or passively assists in the promotion of your town-
site properties on the ground. You will remember that you have
had cause, during the past few years, to frequently change the
personnel of this organization in the capital of the Natural Resources Security Company's kingdom. Without mentioning any
names, may we recall the different townsite managers, advertising agents and even editors who have found temporary space upon the roll of your trusty followers. We think this a good idea.
It keeps the gentlemen in the positions of importance in your
operations on the qui vive, and obtains most excellent results no
doubt. The present incumbents in a number of important posts
under your capable presidency need shaking up, however. Shake
'em up George, shake 'em up. Things do not seem to be working smoothly at all. Instances have appeared recently of cross
purposes at work in your fair city. Surely you will not allow
these fiascos. We know of instances, George, in which people in
your employ have used their best influences to attain a certain
object, whilst other dependent factions have opposed the same
proposition.   Take a hand in the game yourself, George.
Whilst you are in this part of the country, George, we beg that
you will avail yourself of the opportunity to look over our fair
city thoroughly. Do not pass it by, George, there is nothing in
establishing precedent if no good comes of it. Cast your gaze
over our splendid buildings. Mingle with the crowds in the
market places, and have a drink at Al. Johnson's bar. Take in
the town, George, look over the situation, a few minute's ride in
an-auto will land you amid the most peaceful surroundings if the
pace here is too fast.
Assuring you of our continued regard for your welfare and with
the most amiable intentions, we are,
Yours truly,
The Herald.

future importance in Central British Columbia.
In investing in Willow River property be sure
that your property comes to you direct from the

mistake in this. There is only one official and
original Grand Trunk Pacific Railway town of
Willow River at the confluence of the Fraser,
Salmon and Willow rivers. It is located on Lot
785. Station site was approved by Board of Railway Commissioners under date of March 26th,
1912, Order No. 16179. We have no interest in

Amongst the visitors bere this week
was tbe Rev. Mr. Pelham, of Quesnel.
Mr. Pelham has many friends here
and bis occasional visits to this
town arc welcome periods. He is very
generally voted a fine fellow and a
lirst. class "sky pilot."
I. A. White returned last week
from the coast, bringing in with him
seven pairs of horses from Vancouver. One team, which he sold to the
Northern Lumber Company, weighed
34401bs,, the largest team in the
New  Cariboo  district.
Willis Plummer, who has been sick
since March of pleurisy and .pneumonia which developed into consumption, died on the night of the
16th. ut the Little Nugget rooms.
Me is an old timer here, and was
well   known   und   widely liked.
A shipment of 27,0001t>s of machinery, consigned for Barkerville,
passed through town during the week
for the plant of one of the hydraulic
mines. This is the lirst time in history
that, mining machinery for the wonderful old mining camp, wliich once
astonished the world with its riches,
has not come in ovclr thc old Cariboo
road.
An engineer on the start of the
Canadian Northern Railway was a
visitor here this week. Like mosi
railroad engineers'his actions are
shrouded in mystery, and we withhold his name out of consideration
to  Dan Mann.
Mr. G. J. Hammond, president of
the Natural Resources Security Company, isi expected at Fort George
this week.
The Rev. Mr. C. M. Wright of
"Gates of Hell" fame, returned to
Fort George on last night's boat,
after spending some weeks in Toronto
the good.
0. L. Weir, of the Northern Development Company, the original promoters of South Fort George, was a
visitor here this week. Mr. Weir is
pleasantly suprised at the development of this townsite. He informs us
that B. A. Laselle, president of the
Northern Development Company, will
visit the town  very shortly.
W. H. Harkin, one of the best
known newspapermen of the west, and
for the past eight years of the Vancouver Province staff, is spending
his holidays on a trip through the
Cariboo. He arrived here on yesterday's boat. Mr. Harkins is writing
up the country to be traversed by the
P. G. E. from Vancouver to Fort
George.
Contractor S. S. Magoffin is orter-
ing a reward for information that
will lead to the arrest and conviction
of the person or persons who cut
adrift a loaded scow from his cani.i.
The ropes were found cut, and tbe
scow was located about forty miles
below the Fort Georgo canyon. An
example should be made of the miscreants who pulled off thin stunt if
the mighty arm of the law can pick
them out on thc slim evidence.
1. A. White, the progressive liveryman of this town, has taken a
partner into his business in the person of Charlie Westoby, well Known
throughout the Cariboo country as a
stagedriver and horseman. The new
firm will be known as White & Westoby.
S. S. Taylor, K.C, the well-
known attorney of Vancouver, who
has a large interest in some of the
Natural Resources Security company's townsites at the extreme west
of their subdivisions, came up from
Vancouver this week to look over his
holdings. He left by the steamer B.
C. Express for Tete Jaune.

This must seem like a funny land to live in and so it is, when we
consider that a few years ago Fort George was only a dot on the map;
tbe center of a great lone land whore the native Indians gathered rom
nearly all parts of the province to hold common council, to draft their
primitive and unwritten codes of law and to dispose of their furs to the
managers of the Hudson Bay Post, who was to them at that tune auout
the only emblem that a white race existed.
When we think of the same piace today, that we can drop into a
store like Kennedy, Blair & Co. Ltd., and purchase almost any article that .an be bought in the great city department stores at almost the
same price it makes us realize that we are living in a swift age indeed.
This week we are specializing on Ladies' Apparel. We venture to
boast that we have the most nifty line of ladies' wear ever imported
north of parallel 53.
Drop in and see our KIMONAS, LADIES' SILK SKIRTS and our

TOWNSITES MUST BE DEVELOPED
(Continued from Pttao Five.)
Strategic sites which are natural distributive points for tributary country
are chosen.
When the townsite is placed on the
market, lots are generally sold at a
much lower price than could be obtained, for the reason that the railway
wants to attract permanent residents,
business men and manufacturers to the
town, planning to build it up into a
city that will provide traffic for the
railroad.
Selling town lets is not thc chief end
of a railroad, but it is ajbifr thing in
the general scheme of future tralllc.
Consequently railroads foster their
townsites and build them up in every
possible way. The Grand Trunk Pacific, for example, behind a townsite
and spending a large amount of money
in its development, is a practical guarantee that capital put into lots there is
not a speculation, but an investment
wilh every assurance of success.
The railroad gives assurances lhat
such a town will grow, and it is in
place*) of this kind that early buyers of
lots make big profits.
