TME "spluttering of the short political
time,fuse has precipitated a pandemonium of jostling, anxious-eyed aspirants
into those various positions in the political
field of Cariboo, whither their importance,
their fittingness, or their self-assurance has
led them.
There has been no redistribution of seats,
for which negligence the government should
feel ashamed, and blush rosily. The Fort
(leorge country must either gain recognition by its acknowledged right to more
directl representation, or it must bowimeek-
ly to circumstances which hape consigned
the north to the sea politic unprepared.
Whether the district shall be well represented by carefully analysing the situation
and reajusring the.dual-representation to
meet the heavy demands of. the present, and
the heavier demands of the future, requirements of the north, seems to us to lie very
largely with #he delegates at .the Conservative Convention, to be held at Quesnel
shortly. The S southern end of the district
will haw a large majority of delegate.! at
the convention, as the representation is
based upon lb.' vote polled at the last Dominion elect ion. No fair minded man will
deny the fact that during the next three
years the need of more direct representation for the railway section of Cariboo
will be very keenly felt. Under present condition-, however, the population of the district i- largely centred around the o\d Carihoo road. The present representatives, are
drawn from Quesnel and Barkerville. The
next two, should, out of the fitness of things
be drawn from ; Quesnel "and South Fort
George. The general impression is that tli.'

south of the district, to run on the Conservative ticket, instgaxl of from the east and
west, as heretofore.

THE editor of The Herald was this
week served with a summons to appear before Stipendigry Magistrate Heme
here, to answer to a charge of criminal
libel, brought by a Vancouver promoter
named George J. Hammond.
We have conducted a long and strenuous
campaign against this man Hammond,
whose promotion methods we have held up
to the ligbt of publicity. His personality
became involved, and he is suing us for
criminal and civil libel. Tlie Herald will
fight both cases to a complete finish. The
result we are confident of, and we can promise our readers that these cases will constitute the most sensational libel cases in
tl«i history of Canadian jurisprudence. The
Herald editor has behind him the goodwill
of the people who know that his contentions are rigbt; that his fight has been based
on sincere principles, for the protection of
the independent business interests at South
Fort George.
The curtain rang down on the prologue of the comedy-drama this afternoon,
before Stipendiary Magistrate Heme. The
editor asked for an adjournment for seven
days, which was granted. Besides the officers of the court there were present Carl C.
Cutler, Hammond's latest townsite foreman, ' and the spluttering little squib who
is playing at editor for the first time in his
young life on. Mr. Hammond's townsite
organ, the Tribune. Carl C. Cutler,.in reply
lo a question by Stipendiary Magistrate
Heme, asked that bail be imposed for the
,sum of $5000 in all. We offered no objection to this quite excessive bond, as we have
no intension of running away, and the foreman wanted to be impressive. The next act
comes off next week, when the preliminary
hearing will be held.
E
VENTS of the last few years have
proved that there is a class of criminal stock promoters as definite and continuing an element in society as the professional burglar and pickpocket. They
number a couple of thousand men and a
few women. Each person of them creates
many schemes to defraud during Ids career.
Their sceliemes deal with the sale of worthless stocks in eight main divisions of enterprise. They rob the public today of $150,-
000,000 a year (in the opinion of the post-
office chief inspector.) Each scheme fails so
far as the stockholders are concerned. But
the promoter emerges with a sum of money
from each wreckage, and projects a similar
scheme under a new corporation name.
Meanwhile, he lives lavishly on the money
of the clerks, stenographers, clergyman,
physicians, and small tradesmen whom he
has dexterously robbed. Of these professionals, a gentleman who studied them for tut
Chicago Board of Trade says: "Robbery by
deception is a science. The comparative immunity encourages men of keen intelect and
easy concience to devote their lives to the
study of swindling." The innocent victim
has a subsoil like that of southern Calif-*
ornia. From it may be taken several crops
a year without exhausting- its almost infinite, virginal trustfulness and easy repose'.
Gayly there bloom the white flowers of' a,
blameless credulity. The promoter is one of
the few characters in real life who thrive on
failures. His history is honeycombed with
wreckage. Some are birds of passage, with
a troubled life on the wing. Others emerge
erect a new company on the ruins of the
from successive breakdowns, and bravely
former failure. No other character has so,
large a record of personal success und of
business failure. -COLLIER'S. '■"
THE petition of the Natural Resources
Security Company, for certain railway station priveleges, comes before the
Railway Commission early next month. The
townsite company is trying to back up their
petition, by sending out to the hundreds of
people on their mailing lists, copies of what
the accompanying letter claims to be a
"short form of petition," which the company request the person addressed to sign
and send in a stamped addressed envelope,
which they also enclose, to Messrs. Pringlo,
Thompson k Burgess, Trust Building,
Ottawa, Canada: Presumably their solicitors.
This is the way the   "short form of petition" reads:
The Board of Railway Commissioners
of Canada,     Ottawa, Ontario.
Sirs:-
Being vitally interested in
the welfare and future development of
Fort George, a new townsite oil the
Grand Trunk Pacific main line in
Central British Columbia, 1 hereby
petition that your honorable body
grant the application of the Natural
Resources Security Company Limited,
and do issue an order directing that
the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway
Company provide suitable and necessary railway sidings and stations' accomodations at or near the townsite
of Fort George at the earliest possible
date.
Respectfully submitted.
It does not take a lawyer, or a high-brow
person to show that such a document as
that reproduced above would never be sent
out by a business concern, unless that concern were anxious for the cause which it was
pleading before the Railway Commission.
There is nothing to prevent any individual
in the Dominion of Canada from signing
one of these typewritten fly-sheets. If a man
signs his name to such a document as this
he proclaims himself to be vitally interested in Fort George. WHO CAN PROVE
THAT HE IS NOT?
CITY AND DISTRICT
Tbe Firemen's Ball, held in
the Fort George Theatre last
Wednesday evening, was a very
well attended and most successful event. Financially it was
also entirely successful, the Fire
Department receiving a good
financial contribution towards
paying off thoir indebtedness.
Mr. Pat Campbell, Deputy Fire
Chief, is to be thanked for a
great deal of the work that
was largely responsible for tho
entire success of tho dance.
The bi'g fire bell, purchased by
Chief J. R. Campbell, arrived
here this week, and has been
delivered at the fire hall in
readiness for hoisting to its
position in front of the building. The bell weighs over five
hundred pounds, antl will be
audible for manv miles.
Harry Close,    of thc firm of
Close k    Brown,   returned    to
town from a prolonged holiday
in the land   of the   Stars and
Stripes. Mr.   Close saw a bull
i fight,    somewhere    beyond the
i American border. The bull got
■real peeved and nailed the toreador, who got   too fresh. He
tells us that a great number of
people all over    the continent,
appear to be interested in this
place, and from all indications,
he believes, there will be a big
influx in the spring.
THE necessity of the Peace river wagon
roads, which we hnve so long advocated, become more necessary than ever
now that the province has secured control
of the great 3,500,000 acre Dominion Government Reserve in the Peace River valley.
The Herald was tlie first paper to advocate
the building or wagon roads into the Peace
River country, or to the tributary waterways of the Peace of the Peace which stretch
their reaches close to our navigable rivers.
In other columns we print the opinion expressed by tlie Vancouver Province on this
matter. As we have repeatedly urged, if
this province desires to conserve tbe trade
of the Peace River valley, it is up to the
government to provide means of ingress.
Jn spite of the fact that there are thousands
of acres of land under reserve in the Peace
river country, "for pre-emption only", the
government of this province has not built
a single waggon road into the country. And
they have now acquired 3,500,000 acres of
land in addition to their marooned area.
If this country had a live member of
its own on the flloor of the house during
the present session a Peace River wagon
appropriation would certainly appear in the
Estimates of Revenue and 'Expenditure.   ; "
Chas. H. Gibbs, a representative of the Taylor Safe Works
of Toronto, arrived here on the
last stage. Other travellers who
arrived were Mr. McPherson,
representing Swift k Co., of
Chicago, and Mr. Gulbraith, of
Wood, Vallance k Leggat, of
Vancouver. Messrs. Kelly Douglas k Company's traveller was
here last week.
W. F. Cooke, writing from
Ottawa, states that whilst in
Edmonton recently, it appeared
that freight fould be moving
west from that city about the
middle of next summer.
The Fort George Herald is
going to shortly commence the
publication af a serial story. It
is entitled "The Losing Game"
and is written by Will Payne,
the American financial writer.
Thc story deals with the career
of a resourceful and daring
bucket-shop operator, of Chicago. The whole story is based
upon truth, making it more interesting.
The Rev. 11. H. I. Williams,
rector of St. Stephen's Church,
South Fort George, returned
from a prolonged tour through
the northwestern part of this
district. Tho Rev. Mr. Williams
left here on foot in the coldest
weather of .January, travelling
over the Stoney Crook trail to

Confirmed. Tbe realty market here seems to
be settling into a state of activity. Inside
property is not affected as yet, but lot-
holders are not listing their' property to
any extent,, which indicates that .they expect a stimulated market in thc spring.
W. F. Cooke will be back hero
by March the first. Ho is at the
present time in Ottawa.
The weather, during the past
week, has continued mild and
plosant. The snow is disappearing.
Indians, down from Fort McLeod, state that fur has been
plentiful there this winter. The
Indians say they want a road.

usually being longer than in tho Twenty-mile creek with Quesnel river
northern part nf the district. About Mr. Howard W. DuBois, of Philadel-
30 men will suffice generally to carry phla. tbe company's general manager
on hydraulic mining, tbat number in- designed the system, and th» en-
olmling attending to the water-sup- gincering work was carried out Ior
ply system. The company's head- some time under the supervision of
quarters in British Columbia are at Mr. H. B. Kergusson, of Vancouver,
■Hydraulic, a small newly established and latterly ol Mr. W. W. Kdwards
town    situated  near  the junction  ot as Chief engineer.
An Outline of the
Past Season's
Barkerville Work
Mention has already been made oi
the (act that last season was a short
,,„,, *or placer mining in ('anion district. As Indicating the shortness of
water in tlic tributary streams that
supply water [or washing the gold-
bearing gravels, it may be Btated
that tlic water in Kias r River,
which is the main nutlet. Inr the surface waters nf ibe Cariboo district,
was lower in 1911 than ever be'ore
known by tlmse engaged in placer
mining in the dislrict.
The several hydraulic mines nf Mr.
John Hopp- l.nwhec, Forest Rose,
and Mosquito Creek- were all worked. While tl"' quantity of gold recovered was smaller than during a
season nf ordinary length, much work
was done towards improving the
water supply for hydraulicing, chiefly
in building higher the dams or reservoirs. Tbe West Canadian Deep
Leads Ltd., did work nil Little
valley creek, and Mr Bouner was
alsn active nn Lightning Creek. Mr.
Laselle operated on China Creek nnd
Nugget gulch. The old Waverly was
worked as usual, good icsults were
reported frnm a Chinese claim on
Slough Creek. Prospecting by driving
a tunnel tn reach the channel on lied
rock was in progress on Summit
Creek. The Wormwold Creek Mining
Co. did some work on a tributary of
Lightning Creek, good prospects were
obtained mi Peters and Venture
creeks. Mr. 11. li. Joins did a lot of
development nn Donovan and Last
Chance creeks, work wns continued
on Stewart. creek, Edwards and
Thompson made roads and ditches
and did some prospecting work on
Sugar Creek, nnd other creeks and
claims in various parls of the
country about Barkerville, but results are not known.
In quosnel division tlie most Important work was that of the Quesnel Hydraulic Cold Mining Company.
In addition, Mr. J. B. Hohson oper
ated his claims nn Spanish nnd Black
Bear Creeks, to which he hns [or
some time been engaged in bringing
water for hydraulicing. Snowsl oc
and Keitbley Creeks are also in
Quesnel division hut no information
was received relative to them.
A description of the Quesnel Hydraulic Gold Mining Co's enterprise
was printed in tbe "Annual Report
of the Minister of Mines" for L910.
This is the largest Installation nf a
