SOUTH FORT GEORGE, B. C., SATURDAY, JULY 6, 1912.
$3 PER ANNUM.
"THE HEART HF
FORT GEORGE,"
The latest addition to the scheme
|0( townsites hereabouts is a proposition named by its promoters, "The
I Heart of Fort George." This is the
Land that has been generally referred
to in the past as the Carney addition The editor remembers tlie time,
1H few years ago, when the pre-emptor who obtained title to the land
I walked into the jack pine and plant-
I ed hiB stake. A couple of years later
I a get-rloh-quick promoter, having apparently    exhausted
the    resources
| that" the middle western states had
1 yielded   to his   various   schemings,
I landed in  Vancouver    witb    a   few
] hundred dollars    and an   unlimited
I amount ol nerve, and started to sell
I a sub-division near the Carney preemption.   Through    the liberal clr-
I calation of a vast amount of mis*
1 leading    advertising    the   promoter
] peddled oft the lots in the adjacent
hub-division, and,   finding the game
I very much    to   his    liking,   looked
round lor more. He got more, much
Imore, and sold    it  all chopped, up
I into 2& foot   lots. Around him he
I gathered an army of kindred spirits;
1 men ot easy principles, and men of
J no principles at   all. In the course
I of time the Carney pre-emption came
I into the "possible" zone. The"suck-
I er" lists were growing daily for huge
I expenditures in advertising had kept
the field green. Finally through the
medium of an   agent in Victoria a
j sale ot the preemption was consum-
\ mated with the Vancouver promoter
as the purchaser.
Apparently the promoter has deem-
' »l it expedient to sell this property
under   an  alias, or   through    the
medium of a subsidiary or affiliated
company, for thc name of the outfit
that figure as the vendors appears to
be tbe British Columbia Estates Ltd,
ol wliich,   we    understand, a   man
named R. K. Lindsay is the moving
ipirit. We know of this man Lindsay
as the right hand man for the very
promoter we   have referred   to. In
fact Mr. Lindsay   told us   in Vancouver the other    day that he was
paying the boss promoter $200 a lot
tor the property and selling it for
(295, but be believe that the correct
figure is (150 to the boss promoter
and thc balance to R.  K. Lindsay,
et at.
As The Herald has got itselt into
a very lively libel suit for daring to
Wl the public what lt thougUt iib-K I
various townsites in this nee'e of the
"oodB, we can not so far fail in our
duty as to pass this addition without comment. Down on Hastings St.
iu Vancouver, where the sales agents
are    busy,   the    proposition    first
attracted our attention. There, be-
the   regulation    plate   glasB
much atfected    by  these sub
division ili>nils, there blazed forth ln
ah tbe splendor of bright pigments
aud bla/.ing lights a masterpiece of
tue window scene painter's art representing    the    "Heart    of    Fort
George." The    Indian Reserve had

scarlet heart, tastefully surrounding
tue land for sale. Then there were
a tew words of simple advice about

Property lies near the south west
Mfner of the Indian reservation here.

a Kovcrnment reserve. To the north

"ro«Kh the medium of the promoter
•"wssaw. Then to the north and
,*Rt Ues the Indian reserve, a trait
of 1366 acres purchased by the G. T.
P. for townsite purposes. This Indian reservation is now being surveyed in preparation to being subdivided and placed on the market by
the railway company. The railway
company will divide this property
into practicable sized lots, and on
some portion of it the railroad company will concentrate their development work. In the opinion of The
Herald this work will be carried on
near the Praser river, a considerable distance from the "Heart ot
Fort George." There are no buildings
on the property except the original
pre-emptor's shack, neither is there
any material development on any of
the sub-divisions adjeent to it, although one of these has been on the
market for the past three years.
The Herald is not "knocking" this
proposition because we do not approve of its promoters, but it is
aggravating in the extreme, after our
extended campaign against similar
promotions, to have propositions
like this on deck. We can only say
that no disinterested person would
buy any of this land on the ground,
and our advice to people who contemplate dropping any ducketts into
the "Heart of Port Gsorge" is that
they should first come up here and
see whether the heart will pass the
doctor, or whether it is subject to
fatty degeneration which may result in eventual death.
A CALGARYESTIMATE
Readers of The Herald will remember that some months ago we announced in these columns that we
would run a serial story in the columns of this paper entitled "The
Losing Game." This is a yarn by
the well known American financial
writer, Will Payne. We regret to say
that the editors ot the Saturday
Evening Post have secured the serial
rights to this story, which, by the
way is all founded on fact, and they
inform us that it is contrary to the
policy of their journal to permit the
reproduction of their expired serials.
However, we would recommend those
of our readers to secure the story,
which Is also published in book lorm,
if they wish a few hours of interesting reading. The editor, whilst in the
city of Chicago recently, met many
of the men who figured in the story
as fighters of the bucket-shop crooks.
Bob Edwards, the editor ot the
Calgary "Bye Opener" prints the
'ollowing interesting Information in
connection with this story.
WHAT EDWARDS SAYS
How many Eye Opener readers remember reading a cracking good
continued story about a year ago
.vhtch was published in the Saturday
livening Post, entitled "The Losing
Game." It was chock full of human
interest, and obviously was not all
fiction.
It describes how a young tehgaib
operator broke into the bucket shop
business through picking up a little
easy money while "working a wire"
as an operator in Chicago on the
Grain Exchange. With a girl com-
oanlon, who was also an operator,
they held up the quotations long
enough to "stick" a big bucket shop
now and then. The game looked so
good the two thought that they
would break into the buc':et shop
game, and they did. Tho story describes all tbe inside workings of the
modern bucket shop, especially the
crooked end of it. The story dealt
with every phase of the oporatlon.
The two Chicago telegraphers were
married and gradually got rich, enormously rich. Their headquarters
were at St Paul, and they operated
all over the west, including Winnipeg
and Calgary. Then the "other
woman" broke in on the good thing,
and the wife got her divorce, taking
a big chunk of the capital. She was
sore, and gave away enough of the
secrets of the firm to put a crimp
into tbe bank roll, and when the
chappie quit he was as badly broke
as the many victims he touched.
Today the man whose experience was
described is a big real estate promoter in western Canada. He has
acquired a fortune, and works his
smooth game from Vancouver. One
of the men employed by the chief of
"The losing Game"* now lives in
Calgary and Is connected with an elevator concern.
STILL A CROOK
We might further add that the big
real estate promoter referred to by
Eob Edwards is, in all probability,
just as big a crook, now as he was
then, and, as Edwards tells us that
he is now selling real estate, our
readers will agree that he has a
limitless field for the execution of
his peculiar talents.
FIRST OF JULY
ROYALLY CELEBRATED
A recently arrived party consisting
of Charles Kettles, Robert Kettles,
Edward Tandcock and F. J. Francis,
all from Ladners, B. C, and A. F.
Post R. Phipps and N. Keyler, Saskatchewan, have secured pre-emptions
in the Salmon River Valley, and all
appear to be satisfied with the land
they have secured. N. C. Jorgensen
located the party recently.

George J. Hammond, who is
suing The Herald for libel for references to his character.
NOT INJIJSTODY
John B. Daniell, President of the
Northern Interior Printing Company
Limited, returned here on Monday
last after an absence of three months
in the south. A supposedly clever
lawyer, acting in the interests of
George J. Hammond, a townsite
promoter who is suing The Herald
for libel, made a statement in open
court at the Clinton Assizes to the
effect that Mr. Daniell would not return here, and tbat he was disposing
of this paper. We take great pleasure in asking our reagers to note
the effect of similar wild statements
which we anticipate from the same
supposedly clever source.
Mr. Daniell has been engaged, for
the past three months, in substantiating his statements with regard to
the man who has launched two libel
suits against us. As th-j case is now
sub judice, we feel restrained from
publishing the results of our findings
hut we may assure our readers right
here and now tbat these findings are
eminently satisfactory from our
point of view., and that the material
we gathered in Chicago, Minneapolis
and elsewhere will contribute to a
most, sensational expose in the fall.
The case is attracting wide attention, and thc interests involved on
either side are powerful ones. The
testimony of many witnesses will be
taken, including that of prominent
business men, police officers, private
detectives, wire tappers, expert Investigators, and others, Court records of past proceedings will be referred to, and the names of some of
the most prominent men in British
Columbia will be Involved in different ways.
The steamer Chilcotin arrived here
from Soda Greek with a load of
freight on Wednesday.
The Dominion day celebration,
which was held here on Monday last
was in uo wise more of a success
than in years of yore, but there was
more of it. There is nothing tbat
marks the progress of this ambitious young city better than the annual return of the first of July cel-
brations. It was but two years ago
when the handfull of pioneers on the
newly platted townsite here decided
to celebrate the first in a befitting
manner and in spite of the most primitive conditions their enterprise
was a marked success. Last yearl in
spite ot the (act that during the pre-
ceeding night the whole population
had vainly fought against the destruction of theitown'B only hotel by
fire, .the celebrations were carried
out with great success, whilst the
smoke from the smoldering ruin of
the only licenced hotel within a radius of a hundred miles drifted
across the scene. Last Monday the
programme of sports and other events which made up the day's entertainment was carried through
from start to finish without a hitch
of any kind. There were more people
in the town than at any one time
in our past history. The buildings
were gaily decorated with bunting
and flags, and the streets were
thronged with people from all parts
of the district. The big steamboat,
"B. X." having run continuously day
and night arrived on the scene
early in the morning.
Following is a list of tbe prize
winners in the programme:
Throwing the baseball: 1st. Russell
Walker; 2nd.  Gilleran; 3rd.  Steves.
Broad Jump: 1st. P. Schooler; 2nd.
Lipton; 3rd. R. Walker.
High Jump: 1st. Jermyn; 2nd.

J. Bird's buckskin
Pony Race: Won by Bird's pony.
200 Yards: 1st. W. Anderson; 2nd.
N.  Byderas; 3rd VanDyke.
Hurdle race: 1st. Albro; 2nd. Smilh
3rd. Stump.
BoVs under 14: Ut. Bud Gross;
2nd. A. LeBranch; 3rd. E. Yazeau.

Dyke; 3rd. Maxine.

Stiles; 2nd. Gross; 3rd. Quinn.
Canoe Race:' 1st. Pius Yaz and
Dennis.
Putting the shot: 1st. J. Campbell;
2nd. McKay; 3rd. A. J. McLean.
The dance, held in the Fort George
Theatre in the evening was a most
successful event. The music was furnished by Senior's orchestra. Tbe
big theatre was gaily decorated by
the dance committee, the stage serving as the supper room.
Congratulations are due the various committees for the efficiency of
their work, and for thc organization
which made possible the excellent results above recorded.
The great attraction on the
First of July was the baseball
game between the South and
North townsites. which afforded
no end of amusement to over
one thousand people who lined
the terraced benches back from
the ball park. The day was perfect and the diamond dusty and
dry, and conducive to fast base-
running, as evidenced by the
size of the score.
The players from the jack-pine
flat are a wiser aggregation today and further emphasizes the
old saw that "the enemy should
never be underestimated," Natty
ball suits never won a game of
ball. Lettering on the tunics
makes a good background for
photographs to distant friends or
as evidence before the railway
commission; but these gilded
trappings are abortive on a diamond. In contrast to the ready-
tailored free-for-all suits of the
N. R. S., the South boys appeared in the honorable overall
and bandana hankerchief, and
marked their entry into the game
by walloping out a ball into the
alder grove, and making a home
run. This had its effect, and
the N. R. S. boys went up in the
air and never came back. The
third and fifth innings were veritable run-getting processions
for South Fort George, making
an aggregate of 18 runs in the
two innings. At no time was
the game in doubt. The score-
Runs
South Fort George       -        -        26
North Fort George -    15
Chas. E. McElroy acted as umpire and his decisions were all
that could be desired.
A meeting for men will be held in
the Maple.Leaf Theatre on Third St,
on Sunday evening at 8.30. There
will be good music and singin:, t 1
lowed by an address. The meetings
are of an entirely undenominational
character.
G. T. P. SALES MANAGER
F. J, McArthur, sales manager tor
the Transcontinental Townsite Company, the firm that handles tbe sale
of townsiteB for the Grand Trunk
Pacific Railway, other than those
sold by auction, is a business visitor in South Fort George. Mr. McArthur came down the Fraser River
trom Tete Jaune Cache with a fleet
of six scows loaded with contractors supplies. Three ot these scows
were left at the Grand Canyon, and
three came on down the river with
the plant and supplies of a subcontractor named S. S. Magoffin,
who has established a right-ot-way
camp on the Fraser river eight miles
above here. With the exception ot
one scow, which piled up on a rock
in Giscombe rapids and will have to
be taken off by one of the steamboats, the fleet made a most successful trip from mile S3, a point
between Goat river rapids and tbe
Cache. Mr McArthur states that construction work is rapidly advancing
up river. He states that Mr. Magoffin expects to have a steam shovel
at work on his contract near here
within the next two months.
Asked as to the business which
brought him into this section, Mr.
McArthur stated that the Transcontinental Townsite company Intended
to commence some extansive development work along the new Une in the
near future. Three townsites, he said
would be placed on tbe market between Fraser Lake and Tete Jaune
Cache. One ot these would probably
be on tbe market before, the end ot
September. The location ot the new
sites was withheld, but, he stated,
they would in no manner be in competition with this place.
Tbe company makes a specialty,
not only ot floating townsites, but
of developing them. Mr. S. T. 8t-
John, General Manager of the company, visited this country some yeart
ago, and was greatly impressed with
the possibilities of its future. The
head oflice ot the townsite company
is located in Winnipeg, and trom
that poiut information is spread
regarding the i ew townsites along
the G. T. P.
The fire wardens throughout the
district have been generally transferred. J. Thompson has been appointed here and J. D. McLean is to
work in the Quesnel division. W. Hal-
emore will go to LUlooot. J. F.
Johnson Btarted recently for Fort
McLeod, and Frank Stevens, of Quesnel, formerly fire warden at Teta
Jaune Cache has been moved to
Stuart Lake.

FORT GEORGE HERALD
PUBLISHED BY THE
mum INTERIOR PRINTING CO. Ltd.
J, B. DANIELL. PRESIDENT
Devoted    to   the   interests   of   Fort
George and  the entire Northern Interior.
J. B. DANIELL.  Editor.
The Fort George Tribune is a
truly remarkable publication. We
refuse to describe it as a newspaper, for that it is certainly
not. A newspaper, according to
our ethics, is a publication devoted to the dsisemination of
news. The word "news" is admirably defined in Webster as
"recent intelligence." No one
conversant with the circumstances which are responsible for the
continued publication of the
sheet referred to, could, by the
furthest stretch of the imagination, convince himself that the
Nechaco townsite organ ever
disseminated anything of the nature of "recent intelligence."
Rather, it is the duty of the
gang of hand-fed menials who
caper in the Nechaco townsite
print shop to the tune of music
composed in the Bower building
at Vancouver, to distort facts, to
warp the truth, and to obliterate
genuine intelligence for the purpose of assisting in the maintenance of certain carefully molded,
and entirely eronious, impressions of the importance of certain townsite properties.
Every now and again one
reads in advertisements referring
to the Tribune, the owner's
proud reference to the fact that
their paper was "founded by
John Houston." May God have
mercy upon the souls of the ragpickers who flaunt this insult to
the dead, when they in turn
cross the great divide. Somewhere in the darkness of the valley of the shadows the immortal
soul of old John Houston will be
waiting to reckon with the men
who must be causing his spirit a
certain amount of unrest by
their continued insult to his
memory. John Houston did own
the Tribune, He died. After
he was dead his heir was induced to sell the paper under
threats of libel. The threats of
libel were based upon statements
that Houston had made about the
operations of the people who
claimed grounds for the threatened charge. These people still
control the Tribune.
Last week, and heretofore, the
townsite organ published an attack upon John A. Fraser, the
only real live member for Cariboo district, of which this place
forms a part. Their ground for
complaint seems to be that they
think Mr. Fraser has been
"knocking" Fort George at Victoria, We must make allowances
for the lack of information possessed by the Tribune, for we recognize the fact that its editors
are new to the district and lacking in knowledge of the subjects
they endeavor to handle. That
is why they fall into such grave
errors as their fragile attempt to
discredit John A. Fraser by preferring against him such childish
arguments as those advanced.
Every "knock" entered against
our member in the columns of
the promoter's organ, however,
may be counted as a "boost."
Down at Victoria the government
at last appear to be awakening
to a realization of the true facts
regarding the "Fort George"
controversy, and they cannot fail
to appreciate the part played by
the Tribune in the fiasco,
At different times The Herald
has criticised the McBride government and our representatives,
but our grounds for criticism
have always   been based upon
some question of policy that affects the welfare of an isolated
community, or the welfare of
the McBride government when
we considered that they were
falling into error of judgment.
It is reasonable to suppose that a
government handling the administration of a great undeveloped
area, far removed from railroad
facilities, and rapidly developing,
should meet with material difficulties in properly fulfilling its
obligations. The Herald, therefore, when such difficulties are
obierved, has faithfully end consistently endeavored to criticise
the issue, in the belief that its
views on local matters are well
founded. This we shall at all
times do.
Our respect for the judgment
of John A. Fraser is entirely undiminished. We know him as a
man with a vast experience in
this district, and as a man whose
unquestionable judgment may be
relied upon, Political factions,
however, and even factions in
his own party, from time to time,
attack his principles, but we
note that his support at election
time is materially on the increase
and, considering the fact that he
is strong enough to antagonize
such interests as those which
control the Fort George Tribune,
we believe that his support will
continue to grow.

The.visit of His Lordship
Bishop A. U. de Pencier, of the
diocese of New Westminster,
marks the progress of the work
of the Church of England in
this section. One year ago a
parish in London, England, sent
a number of clergy into this district to minister to the spiritual
needs of the members of that
church. The work of these men
has borne excellent fruit and
several churches are already
monuments to their activities.
Bishop de Pencier was accorded
a cordial welcome here by all
denominations. He is a big man,
and one eminently fitted to lead
the work of the church in the
hinterlands of a western country.
TENDERS
No, partner, the editor of The
Herald has not been in jail during his absence. Any old crook
can prefer a charge of criminal
libel against a publisher for telling the truth, even though in the
interest of the public, but care is
exercised by the authorities in
such obtruse contingencies that
until the matter is sifted no embarrassments shall result.
Some down-at-the-heel fillibus-
ter in the Nechaco townsite is
masquerading as a G. T. P. engineer to inspire confidence. Such
boorish tactics indicate over zeal-
ousness on the part of some understrapper, and are not worthy
of the master mind that moves
the players with a fine hand.
The Presbyterian mis. Ion hoard
has decided to place three more men
along the line of the O. T. P., to be
stationed at Telkwa, Fraser Lake
and South Fort George. For the support of Fraser Lake, the Y. P. S. C.
E. of Mount Pleasant Church, Vancouver, has guaranteed the sum of
$1200 annually, a record worthy ot
emulation, says the rep< rt.

EDMONTON REAL ESTATE
By ten o'clock on Sunday evening,
May 12th, prospective buyers of lots in
the Hudson's Bay Reserve began to
gather at a little old church building
on Third street. No lots were to be
sold until the following Tuesday, the
Uth, but tickets entitling the holders
to purchase at the sale opening on
Tuesday were to be distributed from
the little church building at 2 p.m. on
the Monday. The lots in questions are
scattered over about 800 acres that
the great company have been holding
as an absolute blank on the map of
Edmonton, until the city has practically surrounded it. At last it was
decreed that a portion of the property,
to wit, an even 1,500 lots, generally of
. 50 feet frontage, by 150 feet in depth,
should be offered, at previously specified
prices, on Tuesday, Hth May.
To those with a clear perception of
the possibilities of Alberta and the
present and prospective greatness of
Edmonton, these lots were much to be
desired, and afforded visions of much
easy money to be made in purchase and
resale, notwithstanding that the prices
announced by "The Company" ranged
all the way from $1,100 to $28,000 each
for these lots. As each ticket-holder
was to be permitted to purchase four
lots, so long aa the lots lasted, the
holders of the higher numbers would
have little or no prospect of being firsthand pnrchasers, hence the anxiety to
be early on the ground to secure one of
the coveted cards, 1,600 of which were
to be issued, numbered consecutively.
By midnight it was estimated that
there were 400 people in the waiting
■to; by 2 a.m. the number had swelled
to about 800, and daylight, Monday
morning, disclosed approximately 1,500
People awaiting the distribution of
cards to be made some eight or nine
hours later. These were not massed in
front of the building, but were stretched "long the sidewalk in single file over
a distance of some eight or ten blocks
jn the neighborhood. The utmost good
humor prevailed, and little or no attempt waa made by anyone to usurp a
P*»ce in the line to which he was not
entitled by priority of arrival.
During and after the distribution of
tlckets> some big offers were made,
and generally refused, foi tickets bear
"IK the lower numbers, entitling the
holders to early selection of lots. It is

There are a great number of town-
site properties on the market in the
land adjoining the Indian Reservation
here. Most of the subdivided properties are owned, sold by or controlled by
the Natural Resources Security Company, Limited, of Vancouver. Their
properties comprise Lots 777, 1430, 936
1429, 937, 938, 2608, 2610 and 2507!
The South Port George townsite, the
business and residential centre of the
district, is situated on Lots 933 and
934. The Hudson's Bay property and
Lots 931 and 932, generally k'uown
as tbe "Bird Addition" are not as
yet on the market. The area subdivided, and either owned or sold
on the profit sharing; plan by the
Natural Resources Security Company Ltd., totals about 1800 acres.
This concern has been responsible
for such development as may be
found today on a small portion of
Lot 938, the smallest of their subdivisions. Their townsites are located on a high jack-pine flat. The
soil is gravelly, and, generally speaking, will not produce domestic vegetation. There are no wells on the
townBite, owing to its height, and
water must be brought from the
river. The ,South Fort George town-
site is a very much smaller area. It
totals about 150 acres, and is situated on the lower benches of thc
Fraser River, which is navigated by
the largest steamboats throughout
tbe open season. The Nechaco River
townsites are not regular ports of
call, as owing to the difficulty in
navigating the Nechaco river except
in high water the boats do not call
there unless paid to do so. Lots in
some sub-divisions of tbe Natural Resources Security Company Limited
have not increased in value to any
material degree during the past three
years. Their Initial subdivisions
are as yet quite indeveloped. South
Fort George is a good live town. It
has been largely built up and developed by the pioneer element, who
settled on the site as soon as it
was placed on the market. The Late
John Houston, the veteran frontier
newspaperman, established his paper
at South Fort George in its earliest
days. The town contains over two-
thirds of the entire population of all
the inhabited townsites. It has two
banks, the Bank of British North
America and the Trader's Bank of
Canada, two sawmills, tin shop,
three* large general stores, a large
theatre, a newspaper issued by the
pioneer publishers of +.he Cariboo
district, a licenced hotel, pool hall,
bakers, confectioners, two churches,
drug store and restaurants. It is ibe
terminus of the British Columbia
Express Company's mail steamboats
and stage line. It is the headquarters
of the Fort George Trading and
Lumber Company's steamboat and
sawmilling operations. The headquarters of the Northern Lumber Co.
merchants and sawmill operators.
It is close proximity to the Government buildings, and is situated in
such manner that the main development of the Indian Reservation
will benefit it more directly than
any other sites. The railways that
are to be built from tbe south must
of necessity follow the Fraser River
shoreline in order to secure a water
grade, and will form a junction with
the main line of the G, T. P. near
the east end of the Indian Reserve.
Acreage close to the South Fort
George townsite is changing hands
every day for large figures. The land
comprising the 8outh Fort George
townsite, and all the Fraser River
properties is of excellent quality,
covered with a light growth of poplar witb scattered firs.
The foregoing resume of the town-
sites here will give the reader some
idea of the respective merits of both
townsiteB. The Fort George Herald
has no affiliations with either of the
exploiting companies whose interests appear1 to be opposed. Those
who have invested in South Fort
George property, not too far back
from the river, may rest assured
that they have excellent value for
the money they have invested, owing
to the rapid growth of development
created by independent initative. If
they desire to sell they should list
their properties with one of the
local realty operators, who are constantly recording handsome profits
for investors. Lots in the townsites
of the Natural Resources /Security
Company depend for their value on
their proximity to that portion of
their property along the waterfront
at which they are trying to centralize their development. At that point
the townsite company is putting up
a number of buildings, and are trying
in every way to start a trend of
development, having their business
centre for its radiating point. This
will hardly be accomplished to any
satisfactory degree for the large
majority on their sites, for a long
time to come. We advise no one to
purchase on the strength of their advertised statements. Intending Investors in any sub-divisions here
should bear in mind that the Grand
Trunk Pacific Railway Company's
townsite will add about one thousand acres more townsite property
to the combined area offered for
habitation. The market has been
dangerously Hooded already, and
bearing this in mind the careful investor will not venture his funds in
any townsite that can not actually
claim the active and independent
development that signifies the approval oi the people on the ground.
Unless they can invest in a townBite
that Is being developed and increased in value by independent enterprise, they had better await the
sale of the    G. T. P. property or
Intending settlers can obtain 160
acres of land by pre-emption. There
are large tracts of land open for
alienation by pre-emption only, in
this district. The land is capable of
raising good crops of garden produce, hay, oats, and practically anything but fruit, which has not so far
proved a success up here, should
maintain that this district Should
not be regarded as a fruit growing
country until that branch of culture
has been properly tested. This is
naturally a mixed farming country.
Wild berries, however, are found
throughout the whole northern interior country, as far north as the
Peace River Plateaux. Wagon roads
are being built into the surrounding
country, and progress will be made
on such public works, as future circumstances demand. The Fraser and
Nechaco Rivers aflord transportation
to their tributary valleys, the Fraser
particulary, being navigable for 160
miles south and 315 miles north of
this point. We believe that the best
way to Becure a good pre-emption
is by engaging the services of one
of the reliable locators, who make a
business of locating the settler.
Some of these men have been in the
district for a long time, and can
save the land hunter time and cash
by his experience. The Herald will
he pleased to advise the settler regarding lands open for pre-emption
and the best means of obtaining
information thereof, on application.
Building materials are at hand in
large quantities. The local mills
have about three million teet of
lumber in the yards, in preparation
for the spring. Lumber costs from
|35 to $75 a thousand feet. People
intending building should consult
by letter some of the local contractors, who, we are informed, will
be pleased to furnish all information.
The fare into the country from the
railway point, Ashcroft, fluctuates
with the seasons. During the summer
when navigation Is open on the
Fraser River, May 1st. to October
lilst., tbe fare amounts to $45, and
the expenses en route about $10.
This is by automobile and steamboat. The winter fare, trom November 1st. to March 31st. totals $62,
with expenses of about $15. Travel
In the winter Is by sleigh. The express rate in the summer is 12} cts.
per tb. The winter rate 20cts. The
summer Freight rate is 6cents, and
the winter rate llcents per Ih.
The cost of living may he gaged
by the following scale ot prices now
prevailing. This rate will he materially reduced when freight comes
down the Fraser River from Tete
Juane Cache, via the G. T. P. steel
from Edmonton. This should transpire next summer: Flour 11 cts th.
Sugar 14 cts. Ih. Ham 35 cts. lh.
Bacon 40 cts. tb. Beans 15 cts tb.
Rice 15 cts. lb. Dried fruits 25 cts th.
Overalls sell for $1.25 a pair. Meat
18 cts. tb. Meals in the hotels, however, cost but 50 cents each.
The banking interest charged here
is ten per cent.
Employment In the past has been
limited to survey work, building
trades, (carpenters), loggers, steamboat crews, packers, canoe men,
land and timber cruisers, laborers
on government road work, and such
work as has been done towards the
development of townsite properties.
Farm laborers are not in demand as
yet. There is no railway work here
up to the present, but during the
next season and thereafter laborers
may reach the grade from this place,
that Is, after next June or July.
Wages range from $4 to $7 a day,
according to the class ot labor.
Prospectors will find practically a
virgin field for their explorations.
The whole district has every indication of being highly mineralized.

his Grace elsewhere. The Duke of
Sutherland's farming experts are now
on  the ground directing operat.ons.
THE NEW BOAT
The latest addition to tho Eraser
river (leet steamed into South Fort
George on Thursday and tie 1 up at
her wharf at the foot of Fourth
street. This was the splendid new
steamboat built by the British Columbia Express Company for tbe
navigation of tbe upper river. This
boat is named the "B, C. Qxpro s".
She is the fasten and most \ioh)V-
ful river boat of her type in British
Columbia. Alex Watson, the wjll
known designer of stern wheel boats
considers thc "B, 0. Express" his
masterpiece. The now boat is 121
feet in length with a beam of H8 fe.t.
She is equipped with a Ya'row boil.r
and a new type of high pressure
simplex engines of 200 horse power,
designed and built for her by the
Chicago Marine Ironworks.
j   The "B, 0. Express" is commau.-
! ed  by  Captain  Uucey,  a  veteran o.
j the Skeena River, who hns commanded vessels for the Unison Bay Company for the past fourteen yesrs. He
! express himself as delighted with lis
'new  command,    and   staled   to T e
; Herald    that   although   the en ines
are as yet new   and stiff   the boat
j steamed through  the heavy currents
Of the Cottonwood nnd Fort Gorge
I canyons     without  the  slightest dif-
! Acuity.   On  her  maiden  voyago last
! Thursday she beat   all previous records  from the  Kort George canyon
to ber dock.
I The new boat starts this morn'ng
for a run up the Fraser river us far
■ as the Grand canyon, where she will
load a quantity of freight for the
contractors up the Nechaco and le
tween here and the Grand Canyon.
It. is the Intention of her owners to
run the new steamer ns a boat forming connection with the railroad
work above this point, She will connect with Foley Welch & Stewart's
boats the Distributor and Conveyor,
which are navigating the Fraser
above the Grand Canyon. She will
attempt the navigation of the Nechaco river to Fraser lake on her return.
CONTRACTOR'S COMMODORE
IS HERE.
Captain Johnson, commodore for
Foley Welch & Stewart, arri\ed in
town on Tuesday last from Hasclion.
Captain Johnson came by way of a
chain of small lakes which lead into
Fraser Lake from the Bulkley Valley.
He embarked in a Bmall boat at
Dekker lake and followed Burns Lake
and the Endaao river into Fraser
Lake, and from there running down
the Nechaco rive! to South Fort
George on the Fraser. He did not express an opinion regarding the teas
ibility of navigating the la'.es and
outlets beyond Fraser Lake as an aid
to construction. B. D. Sprague, a G.
T. P. engineer who is well known
and a prime favorite with the old-
timers here, accompanied Captain
Johnson as far as Stella, at the west
end of Fraser Lake. Mr. Sprague
was district engineer in thiB section
during the preliminary survey of the
line. Captain Johnson was formerly
commodore of tlic Hudson Bny fleet
