At Bridgewater the shock was
very severe, but no damage was

Mahone Bay ancl Shelburne is
about 100 miles. At Sable River,
whieh is half way between the

The Executive Board of the Prince
George Chamber of Commerce of Co m-
ni'i-ee held an imports.t meeting tn
their rooms on George Street on Thursday tight. The Local Improvement
s'tuation was discussed thoroughly and
progress reported all along the line of
th ■ various projects under way. Money
stringency has no damping effect on the
pioneer spirit of this body of citizens,
working for the great future of this
city of the Georges to be and as in all
new ciiies fire protection is the paramount quesli.in and the committees in
charge of obtaining fire apparatus,
hose reels, chemical engines, extinguishers etc. should havo the generous
support of the citizens for it is our only
salvation. All other viulssitudes can
bo overcome with time, patience and
effort. Even the banks will be compelled to recognize and they should be
given due credit'"for their past _r-
sitance; but to lose any' considerable
portion of our town hy a fire scourge
would be disastrous at this time. At
great cost, large, expensive and handsome buildings have been built on George Street and that centre is recognized as the business and civic centre.
The recent Dominion House blaze
while in itself not to serioUB, (gathering
about itself an clement which business
houses and centres are subject) yet
proved an object lesson for our people-
one that they should take due warning
off.
Everyone shoulel help the lire wardens
an.l f.re committees and dig up the
necessary few dollars lo pay in full thc

Vancoi.ver and Winnipeg. The fire
brigade should organize and drill to secure utmost efficiency,

Keen disappointment is felt in the district
at the do nothing policy, apparent in all
things pertaining to this centre.
We recently received and welcomed the
Attorney General, the Minister of Lands
and members of the Provincial Parliament.
We were led to believe that on their return
to Victoria, there would be things doing in
Incorporation of the three Georges, some
local improvements asked  for would be
forthcoming, written memorials handed to
the ministers were thought to be modest,
necessary,   and  wise  in  the  interest of
Government, people, settlement, and  advancement of the country.
But we have listened patiently for some
word, and all we recieve is letters from our
Member living at Quesnel which are evasive,
dilatory, and unsatisfactory in every
particular.
We often wonder how much longer our
patience is to be thus tried. Perhaps we
will hear soon ; possibly those who have the
handling and destiny of our material affairs
; in the development of the country in their
hands may be working out a plan to be
started in the dim distant future, but it is
hard to wait in silence and have faith.
We were advised to send in our plan for
road or street improvement to connect the
, three towns in the most direct route, and
they would be acted on. The route was
plainly indicated and we were advised "yes
you ought to have it." We even agreed to
stand for some of the costs, and after a bit,
the ministers and the members having departed in peace and quiet, we find a differ-
; ent route planned and all our communications
ignored or replied to evasively.
Then there is the Depot site still in the
air. No apparent ligitimate reason for its
delay ; we all suffer and are left to suffer ;
they take our money, they gives promises,
BUT no bread.
Then what has become of the G. T. P.
Officials who were to return at once and discuss with the joint committee who so
"courteously received and frankly entered
NEW B. C. A MIXED FARMING
COUNTRY.
The North West Farmer, the oldest and
most widely circulated agricultural journal j
of Canada, reports that 1913 widely heralded I
as the " hoodo year " after all was the best
year in the history of Canada. This opinion
is based not on the price of Real Estate but
on the condition of our fundamental industry.
For two years Canadian Agriculture has
been finding itself as never before, and in
all times the soil production has been deemed
the basis of wealth. A long distance has
been travelled towards mixed farming, the
most valuable of all farm work. The practice of rigid economy made necessary by
this two years' financial conditions. The
wars abroad, the recovery from land and
real estate speculation which will right itself,
is an augury of better times.
Moreover all Financial authorities recognize this as the beginning of a period of
prosperity unexampled in the history of the
world.
British Columbia is to reap the rewards
of patience and of effort, for in her mixed
farming is her real wealth, combined with
her minerals and forestry.
Add to this the development of roads
promised by the government officials in their I
recent trip through Northern Interior British
Columbia, and we may well look up in this
hour of blackness believing that the darkest
hour is just before the sunshine and
prosperity.

located in the very centre geographically of
this great empire of the west are bound
to shortly feel the change in conditions and
be the first to forge ahead. In this is the
encouragement to hope, to work harder, to
talk, think, and feel prosperity.
Do not let go now! the wise ones are
picking up the droppings from weak hands
and timid holders. The financial cycle
surely begins this year, as it did in 1894,
1874, and 1854, and all the history of the
progress of the world proves that waves of
prosperity and depression follow each other
in natural sequence, and to-day we are on
the eve of another great foward movement.

The Socialist party last night
issued a general manifesto demounting war and has called
meetings to protest against hostilities between Austria and
Servia.
Acting Premier Bienvenu Martin and the ministers of war and
marine met yesterday and received reborts on the military
defensive measures. The minister of war issued a circular regarding the equipment of French
soldiers in case of mobilization.
The newspapers also published
detailed instructions.
At the end of the demonstrations last night the streets were
littered with canes, umbrellas,
hats, handbags and torn overcoats. A large number of police
received injuries while repressing the demonstrators, of whom
800 were arrested.
Violent anti-war demonstrations occurred on the boulevards,
accompanied by the singing of
re v olu tion ary songs. Large
forces of police and mounted Republican guards frequently-
charged the crowds. Many persons were knocked down and injured.

Halliday Serves His Adversary Cole
in the Same Manner
A fast and clever mill was
staged in the Ritts-Kifer Hall, on
Monday night, between Harry
Anderson and Dan Hodgson.
Hodgson looked like a winner
when he stepped into the ring
being well-built and muscled, and
appeared much heavier than his
opponent. Anderson stepped into
the ring in his usual calm and
confident manner, and seemed to
have no fear of his adversary.
During the entire fight Anderson was cool and quick, dodging
the heavy swings of Hodgson and
landing at will to the jaw and
face until finally he knocked his
man out in the middle of the
sixth round, Anderson received
a hard one to the kidneys, but
came out without a mark while
Hodgson is fit for the Hospital.
Hodgson is a plucky boy and took
a lot of punishment, declaring
afterwards that he was not in
training.
THE FIGHT BY ROUNDS
1.—The first round ended even,
both men feeling each other out.
Anderson does some clever foot
work.
2,- The second round was
Anderson's by a wide margin.
Hodgson played for a knock-out
but Anderson is to quick for him,
Hodgson swings wide.
3.—The third round was also
Anderson's by a narrow margin.
Anderson played right up to the
big man and found the face three
times in quick succession. Hodgson's right to the body three times
4.—Round ended even. Both
men were sparring for an opening
Anderson landed to the face, but
received a bad one to the kidneys.
5.—This was also Anderson's
by a wide margin, Hodgson was
groggy and collapsed but got to
his feet again-His left eye was
almost closed and' his lip cut
badly.
6.—Anderson came in fast and
landed lo the face in quick succession pushing his man to the
ropes and with a right facer sent
Prince Rupert, Aug, 1.—From
returns supplied by a grower,
Mr. H. D. Lenhart, Mile 87 on
the Skeena River, one acre and
a half of strawberries has to date
produced $700, the strawberries
selling at an average price of
$2.50 to $3.50 per crate, and at
least a quarter of the crop still
remains. In addition to the product realized upon, some $150
worth of fruit has been lost for
lack of shipping facilities.
Strawberries should be
shipped daily instead of by the
tri-weekly service now operating.
From this .practical demonstration it can readily be seen
how very profitable the cultivation of small tracts of such good
soil as is adjacent to this city is,
and will be in great measure in
future. With the excellent market furnished by this increasingly important city, the owner of
a well cultivated five-acre tract
of market garden produce and
poultry is very much better off
than the city dweller with a job
and a $100 or $150 per month,
E x c e 1 le n t strawberries, for
size, coloring and flavor unsurpassed, have been shipped this
year by Messrs. M'chaud Bros.,
Of Terrace. Everywhere along
the valley of the Skeena, where-
ever a clearing has been made in
the timber and the soil cultivated, the same storey of productiveness has been told.
In connection with the city
market shortly to be built, growers might with advantage look
into the possibilities of preserving on the spot such fruits as
from dav to day remains unsold.
Next season there will most certainly be a daily service from the
Skeena valley and district into
Prince Rupert, The putting up
in proper shape of unsold fruit
from day today will serve to prevent good produce from being
sold for unreasonably small
prices.
Instances are cited this season
where io.- lack of systematic
handling produce has rotted on
the ground and shipments re
ceived in this city disposed of at
figures that did not pay cost of
handling. The public derives no
advantage and the producer suffers loss. And yet despite all
these disadvantages of transportation and d i s t r i b u t i o n, good
profits have been realized.
It only remains for the growers of the district to start an
organization that will conserve
the results of their labor in an
efficient manner to make their
industry the most profitable as
well as one of the most assured.
