 FUKT GEORGE HERALD
Vol. I.   No. 5.
SOUTH FORT GEORGE, B. C, SEPTEMBER 17, 1910.
per Annum.
A GREAT FUTURE HIGHWAY
SURVEY OF WAGGON ROAD FROM STONEY
CREEK TO SOUTH FORT GEORGE
NOW COMPLETE.
Mr.  T.   Rognaas,    the    engineer   whom   the
Minister   of   Public   Works evincing  his   usual
Kforesight in chosing clever and capable men for
His staff,   is here at  present, having completed
'   Bthe surveying of the new road which will extend
, i". ffif rom Stoney Creek to Fort George; thence crossing
*■''- Kthe Fraser river from the foot of Fourth street,
j/mSouth Fort George (where the Government ferry
„i":Bw'" ^e located), on down the fertile valley on the
east side of the river to Quensel.
The distance from Stony Creek to Fort George
is seventy-eight miles and from Fort George to
iQuesnel probably about the same distance as a
uch shorter and better route can be had than by
the present road to Quesnel via Blackwater from
kouth Fort George.
The total distance of the new road then from
■Quesnel to Stoney Creek will be 156 miles approxi-
pBmately, over a road which will have the easiest
'^Ifgrades of any to the north.
-'   !   The road from  Fort George to Stoney Creek
fe^will be an especial boon to the settlers and miners
of  the  Nechaco,   Fraser,   and   Stewart's   lake
districts.
Owing to the fact that the low water in the Nechaco river makes navigation at certain months
of the year very uncertain, the settlers west of
South Fort George in the districts before mentioned must rely on pack-ho>*ses and wagons to do
their freighting with, to a very great extent.
From Stoney Creek to Quesnel the round-trip on
a road, the grades of which makes heavy loads an
impossibility, means a distance of 252 miles. This
compared with the trip from Stoney Creek to South
Fort George means ninety-six miles per round-
trip longer. South Fort George with its. enterprising merchants, and quick team and steamboat
transportation facilities from the Canadian Pacific
Railway at Ashcroft, with its very probable likli-
hood of receiving freight from Edmonton via Tete
Jaun Cache next fall. All these advantages will
make it the most convenient base of supplies in the
north. Then its superioroity of grade over the
existing roads that the South Fort George and
Stoney Creek road will have will mean an im-
mence amount of saving of time and money.
It is quite safe to say that on the completion of
this road that there will be more traffic over it
than goes over the Cariboo road of today. Its connection with the road to Stewart's lake, Fraser
lake and Hazleton too, giyes it an advantage not
to be under estimated, and the traffic of it will
even reach the Omineca mines by cheapening
freight to Stewart's lake.
The road from Fort George to Quesnel on the
east side of the Fraser river opens up perhaps, the
most fertile part of this valley, and will mean
activity in agricultural circles, and probably will
renew interest in the Cariboo mountain range and
Hixon creek mineral deposits.
The Provincial Government has promised to complete the road between Mud river and South Fort
George this fall. There is quite a large settlement
at present and the road will prove a great convenience to this section of the country.

LIBERAL ASSOCIATION MEETS
SENDS  DELEGATION TO  OTTAWA TO INTERVIEW   MINISTERS.
A meeting of the Fort George District Liberal
Association was held in South Fort George on
Wednesday evening. President D. II. Rattenbury
in the chair.
Many matters of importance to the welfare of
the district regarding the reguirementsof the Fort
George section from the Departments at Ottawa
were discussed by the meeting, and a motion was
carried to send a delegation of one to Ottawa to
approach the Ministers on these matters. Mr. W.
F. Cooke was the unanimous choice of the meeting.
Mr. Cooke left here yesterday for the east, and
will-inlerview the Postmaster General, the Minister of Agriculture, and the Ministerof the Interior
on matters of importance, v\ hich will doubtless receive the attention of the heads of departments.
The Fort George District is not receiving the
attention which circumstances now so amply justify from the Ottawa Government, (bis action ol
the1 local Liberal Association is most commendable.
A NORTH AND SOUTH RAILWAY
DIRECT RAILROAD FROM  NORTHERN  INTERIOR   TO    VANCOUVER   MUST
EVENTUALLY BE BUILT.
British Columbia, of all Canada's Provinces,
stands in the greatest need of railroad transportation facilities in order that the stupendous mineral,
agricultural, and timber resources within the Province's boundaries may be brought within reach of
the farmer, the miner, and the lumberman, whose
operations, owing to the lack of these facilities are
at present restricted to an infinitesimal portion of
the productive territories of British Columbia,
save for the efforts of the scattered bands of pioneers in her remote but bountiful hinterlands.
The building of the Canadian Pacific Railway
brought the southern end of the Province the
primal necessity of extensive development, cheap
transportation. The production of minerals, the
growth of the agricultural and lumbering industries which now form the subject matter of yearly
statistics, issued with pride by the Government
departments in Victoria bear infinite testimony of
the wonderful transformation of an enormous undeveloped territory into fertile and prosperous
areas by the advent of transport by rail.
The Grand Trunk Pacific Railway is to be the
second railroad to bisect the Province from East
to West on its transcontinental way to the Pacific
coast, and traversing a territory in every way
equal in natural resources to that traversed by the
Canadian Pacific Railway in the South, it will
eventually create in this sparsely populated and
poorly developed central portion of the Province
as prosperous and productive a railroad belt as that
adjacent to the Canadian Pacific Railway, and its
tributary roads, whilst to the general public this
territory offers a better opportunity of settlement
near the line, than did its southern competitor
as no barring railroad land belt will bound the
line of the Grand Trunk Pacific through this
Province.
The Province of British Columbia, extending
from the 49th to the 60th parallels of longitude
lies north-westerly in a general direction. Its
greatest breadth extends across the northern
bumdry, but the average breadth will be found
not to exceed about half its length.
Having as an established fact two railroads
crossing the Province, British Columbia now
stands in great need of a north and south railroad
to bring the virgin territory between the Grand
Trunk Pacific and the Canadian Pacific Railway,
and the wonderful expanse of inestimably rich
country in the great Peace river valley within easy
reach of the centres of population on the British
Columbian seaboard. That this line will eventually be built there is no doubt, although at present
the section over which actual construction is contemplated by railroad companies; that between
Vancouver and Fort George, is badly tied up by
charter mongers who seek to peddle their privi-
ledges to bona fide companies which are ready to
build. When these matters have been adjusted
by legislation and the construction of the Vancouver-Fort George road has been actually commenced the northern terminus of that road will
not be at Fort George but at some point in the
Peace river valley.
Mercator's projection shows that the Peace
river valley in British Columbia is on approximately/the same degree of longitude as Glasgow
in Scotland, and considering that the Peace heads
at the confluence of the Findlay and Parsnip rivers
in this Province on the 124th parallel of latitude
and that from there it wends its way half across
Canada, discharging into Lesser Slave or Athabasca lake, from the eastern end of which another
system of water-ways connects it with Churchill
river flowing into Hudson's Bay, there can be
little doubt that when Vancouver and Prince
Rupert are connected by rail with a system of
extending clear across Canada, whilst the same
line of railroad will open up the greatest undeveloped portion of the Province, that the greatest
epoch of advancement in British Columbia's history
will have been reached.
This road will, we believe, be built by the Grand
Trunk Pacific Railway Company, as that system
would reap enormous benefit therefrom, both from
the Peace river tonnage, and from the branch to
Vancouver. The present projected line, a creation
of General Manager Chamberlain's which leaves
Tete Jaune Cache and saws across the grain of
the province in a direct but impossible line to Vancouver is more or less of a joke to those who know
the country, and if built it would effectually kill
Prince Rupert as that company's western terminus, and would result in a transcontinental line
from Moncton to Vancouver with a branch from
the Cache to Prince Rupert.
A STORY OF VALUES
THE FORT GEORGE TOWNSITE ONCE UPON
A TIME WENT A'BEGGING FOR
OWNERSHIP.
Hugo Ross, one of the foremost reality men of
the Canadian west visited Fort George this week
for the first time.
Mr. Ross holds half interest in the townsite of
Fort George, 'of the Natural Resources Security
Company, on the Nechaco river here, a large section of the water-front of which is held in reserve
for him.
The visit of Mr. Ross to Fort George recalls to
us the history of the days but two short years ago,
when the townsite of the Natural Resources
Security Company was "unreserved, unoccupied,
and unalienated Crown land," and of the strange
tricks of fate which finally landed it in the ownership of the Natural Resources Security Company,
to be advertised to the extent of scores of thousands of dollars as the townsite of Fort George.
It was in the Summer of the year 1908 that the
editor of this paper received a letter from an
engineer who had been in the employ of the Grand
Trunk Pacific Railway Company, on their preliminary survey through this section, requesting him
to have staked in the names of G. 0. Leask and
G. P. Roberts, certain tract of land immediately
adjoining the north-west corner of Indian Reserve
No. 1, here. The request was granted and the
editor allotted the job to Hiram Carney in Quesnel.
Carney wrote later from Fort George stating that
he had transferred the work to Francis Hoffer-
camp, of this place. To Frank belongs the honor
of driving the legal post that transferred the
"Townsite of Fort George" from the ownership of
the Crown to that of G. 0. Leask and G. P. Roberts.
We duly received the forms and forwarded them
to Barkerville, publishing in the second issue of
our first paper, the Cariboo Observer, the advertisement according to the "Land Act."
Strange to say several prior stakings had been
made on the land, but none of the applicants had
gone any further than to drive a location post on
the ground that is now decorated by thousands of
corner posts of twenty-five foot lots. Amongst
these prior locators was Bob Alexander, one of the
oldest residents of this place who staked land, but
through inattention to the necessary proceedure
awoke one morning to find that his time for application had lapsed, and two men in the employ of
the Grand Trunk Pacific, who never went any
further than to stake.
The Victoria owner did not hold the land long,
selling it for $75 an acre. The buyer a Winnipeg
operator, named Campbell selling it to Hugo Ross
and an associate for $175 per acre.
The present value of the land is roughly estimated at $250,000.00, which value is of course
based on the sale prices of the lots held in joint
ownership by the Natural Resources Company and
HugO ROSS. "it
An investment by some of those old stakers in a
two-cent stamp would have netted a very fair
margin of profit, but that is the history of the entire Fort George vicinity in retrospect for the past
two or three years. The woods around here are
full of these "if I had of-" gentlemen, but we
shed never a tear.
There are townsites and townsites here, some
were originally bought for small figures and were
boosted into dizzy heights of value by the greatest
efforts of the ad writer's art; others have been
bought at equally low figures and have reached
high values by the independent efforts of the investing public in occupation of their properties.
There are yet chances in and near Fort George'
at large to make profits in land,.H)ut to our many
enquirers we would advocate a personal inspection
before writing any checks..
A. G. Hamilton has commenced the construction
' of a fine new store on one of his lots at the foot of
Second street. It is persistantly rumored that Mr.
Hamilton will retire from the mercantile business
shortly and will devote his time to his operations
in land.
The President of the British Columbia & Alaskan
Railroad, Jean Wolkenstein, of New York, U. S. A.,
has announced that the surveys of that road from
this point to Quesnel, are completed and the
parties have been withdrawn from the field. Mr.
Wolkenstein is now consulting with Premier McBride regarding the concessions his company wants
before further work will be done.

FORT GEORGE RE
PUBLISHED BY THE
NORTHERN INTERIOR PRINTING CO.
J   H. DANIELL. PRESIDENT
Devoted   tu   the   interests   of   Port
George and  Hie entire Northern  Interior.
,1.  Ii.  DANIELL,  Editor.
September 17, 1910;
The policy adopted by the McBride grvernment for the disposition of Crown lands in this
Province appears to be regarded
by his opponents as a phase of the
administration affording extraordinary scope for garbling the
facts of cause and effect on one
of the most important of the administration's responsibilities,
the handling of the people's
land.
The usual line of argument
taken by the opposition in the
press or on the platform, is to
cite some instance of the home-
seeker who plants his stakes on
the other fellows land, all unwittingly of course, who then
commits perjury, also of course
unwittingly, by swearing over
his signature that he is applying
for "unoccupied, unreserved
Crown land," and who goes
ahead improving "his" property
because he received a record
issued on the strength of his
affidavit.
We were surprised to read this
hackneyed argument in the editorial columns of one of the
staunch conservative organs recently, and marvelled greatly
thereat. Such feeble criticisms
are more at home in the barroom.
The land policy certainly has
its faults which are being remedied as fast as surveyors can run
their lines, for if the topography
of this country were less broken,
and a complete system of surveys could be instituted, entries
on land could be immediately and
positively located on the Government blue-prints and the officials
would be able to deal with the
applications in the local offices,
whereas uuder present conditions
two or more applications for the
same land may be so approximate in description that it is
quite impossible to decide on the
validity of either claim until the
field-notes of the surveyors are
in the Lands Department, then
if the pre-emptor, who has every
means of finding whether the
land is open or not by careful
observation on the ground, finds
that he has located on a purchased lot cr a mineral claim he cannot reasonably expect title.
Our contemporaries which support the McBride opposition, decry the sale of Government lands
to the "speculator," and yet in
adjoining columns one may of-
times read of the operations of
some "great colonization company" on which the editor will
enthuse. How could such operations be carried out were it not
for the policy of selling land now
in force without discrimination
in favor of a corporation as
against the individual.
The inconsistance of some of
the orators who appeal to the
voters on this subject is often
grotesque. Some time ago we
listened to a fiery oration of a
man who had evidently staked
a choice and valuable piece of
somebody else's land, and who
was telling the people how sore
he felt because he could not hold
it, he told the people that all the
best Government land had now
been sold, and that this sale of
land should cease instanter. If
his argument was true and all
the best land had been sold
surely, friend, you should have
no objection to the strengthening
of the treasury by the sale of
the "worst."
We heartily endorse the land
policy of the present in force in
this Province, not, as some rude
contemporary suggested some
time ago, because the country
press was growing fat on land
ads; but because we appreciate
the fact that by the time the
Grand Trunk Pacific is completed
through this district the holdings
of the large companies will be
peopled by the very best class of
settlers. The well-to-do farmer
who can afford to purchase land
considered high at present, but
which is not within a tithe of its
value five years hence, These
families have no wish to go
through the pioneering stage
again — they probably did that
stunt years ago,

Wm. Blair & Co.'a new store opened
last Monday morning, and since that
date Manager Kennedy has been exceptionally busy trying to cope with
the great increase in business which
the advantageous display of his goods

credit to the town of South Fort George
and to the district. Mr. Blair intends
to build a warehouse the same size as
his new store immediately adjoining it.

schooner to Stewart's lake; down
Stewart's lake to Fort St. Sanies by
pack-horse to MacLeod lake, Then the

South Fort George is not only a centre of future
years, but of today. Boats of every description
plying on the Frazer and Nechaco rivers must pass
it. No townsite on a navigable river equals ii in
magnificent water frontage.
South Fort George is the outfitting point today
for the great undeveloped area around it. The
Government roads from Quesnel and Frazer lake
land at it. The new Government road to Quesnel on
the east side of the Fraser river starts from it, which
Will tap the majority of the best land in the district.
WE INVITE YOUR INSPECTION OF OUR PROPOSITION.
We are owners and agents of the choicest lands in the Nechaco and Fraser
river valleys.
