RAILWAY EMPLOYEES AT PRINCE
CONSTRUCTION ON FIE.
Yards of P.G.E. Between George Street
and the River—Building of Hotel
to Commence in Three Weeks
Prince George will be a city before the close of the present year, such is the opinion Morley Donaldson, vice-
president and general manager of the Grand Trunk,
expressed to a Herald reporter on Thursday. Mr. Donaldson spent but the one day in this district and his time
was occupied in inspecting the activities of his company
in Prince George and making arrangements for the carrying out of the spring programme.
"Prince George will be the only divisional point on the
Grand Trunk between McBride and Smithers," declared
Mr. Donaldson, "and the work on the shops here will
begin within the next thirty days. The roundhouse will
contain twelve stalls, but is to be so constructed that it
can at any time be enlarged to accommodate a maximum
of thirty stalls.
"The Grand Trunk is to shortly begin the erection of a
large number of houses on thetownsite of Prince George
for the benefit of its employees, as probably no fewer than
2000 men will be employed in the railway yards at this
point. A temporary site and spur have been granted to
the Imperial Oil Company, who, within the next ten days,
will begin the erection of large buildings.
"The Pacific Great Eastern," continued Mr. Donaldson,
"will make Prince George their headquarters for construction in Northern British Columbia and within the next
sixty days active operations will begin. The line of
right-of-way will meet the Fraser at a point opposite the
B.X. office in South Fort George and foHow the east bank
to the Grand •'Trunk bridge, at which it will cross, and follow the Grand Trunk line into Prince George. The yards
of the P. G. E. will be located between George street and
the river."
Building operations on the Grand Trunk Hotel will begin within the next three weeks, and it will be located as
intended on George street. A water tank is under construction in the west end of the railway yard, and already
ten tracks, with a capacity of seventy-five cars each, have
been laid. The company are now in a position to operate
a first-class telegraph service at the Grand Trunk regular
telegraph rate.

EXTEND SERVICE
EAST ON 0. T. P.
Trains To Be Operated Between Smithers
and  Wordsworth, 337 Miles
From Prince  Rupert
Extending its train service
from the Prince Rupert end of
its transcontinental line by
thirty-six miles, the Grand
Trand Trunk Pacific Railway has
commenced to run regular trains
from Smithers, 227 miles of the
northern terminal and an important divisional point, to
Wordsworth. 110 miles east.
At present trains are only being operated as far as Ross Lake,
thirty-six miles east of Smithers.
A mixed freight and passenger
train will be operated on Thursdays and Sundays, leaving
Smithers at 8:30 a.m.
The inauguration of the new
service will lessen materially the
gap between the two portions of
line already in operation. The
G.T.P. recently opened its line
for traffic from the eastern end
of construction as far as Prince
George, 486 miles west of Edmonton and 474 miles from
Prince Rupert. This will leave
a 138-mile section yet to be linked up. Grading is well advanced
on the entire stretch lying between the two completed portions and track-laying and bridge
building is also proceeding.
Announcement was made by
Morley Donaldson, vice-president
and general manager of the
G.T.P., that the northern sections of the new transcontinental
route would be linked up by the
beginning of next May.

KING FAVORS CLEAN BOXING
London, March 7. -King George
declares he will support all properly conducted boxing tournaments.
An act providing further aid
in the construction of the Canadian Northern Pacific Railway
was introduced by the Premier
last week in the legislature.
Under the bill the Provincial
Government agrees to guarantee
the payment of the principal and
interest of the necessary bonds
and debentures to an amount
not exceeding $10,000 per mile
of the company's main line.
Under the original agreement,
which was ratified by the Legislature in January, 1910, the Province agreed to guarantee the
500 miles from Vancouver to the
Yellowhead Pass, at the eastern
boundary of the Province, which
constitutes the main line, to the
extent of $35,000 per mile, and
the proposed act increases this
guarantee to $45,000 per mile.
The interest on the securities
of the additional guarantee is
fixed at 4 1-2 per cent, and the
principal will mature in April,
1950.
A provision is included in the
act which extends the time of
completion of the several branch
lines from July 1, 1914, to two
years later. These lines include
the branch from New Westminster to Steveston, the extension
from Victoria to Patricia Bay,
the line from New Westminster
to Vancouver, the extension to
Strathcona Park of the Vancouver
Island line, and the Okr-\agar
line.
Although the majority of these
lines are well under construction
it is understood that the extension of time has been asked owing to the delay in the negotiations with regard to the sale of
the securities, which was deferred pending the passage of
the act assented to last week.
STATION SITE DECISION
MAY VETBE CHANGED
The following letter received this week from Hon. Martin Burrell, Minister of Agriculture and Dominion member
for this district, is self-explanatory. The letter is illuminating to many owing to the fact that the Hammond-
subsidized press had heralded broadcast the assertion that
there was no possibility of reversal of the decision handed
down by the Cabinet-in-Council. Mr. Burrell's letter
follows:
Ottawa, Uth February, 1914.
Secretary South Fort George Conservative Association,
Dear Sir,-Your night letter of the 26th ult. and many
other communications from your district in regard to the
appeal of the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway Company in
the matter of the location of the station were given full
consideration.
Counsel for all sides concerned were heard at the meeting of the Cabinet and the decision was as expressed in
the following extract from the Order-in-Council:
"AND WHEREAS it appears lo the Minister of Justice thai the questions
involved are questions of fact depending for their solution upon the appreciation and weighing of contradictory evidence and the case in consequence is not
one in which the Governor-in-Council is called upon or would be justified in exercising the power conferred upon him by Section 56 of the Railway Act.
"Therefore His Royal Highness the"Governor-General in Council is unable
to grant the prayer of the said petitions."
I may add that it was felt by the Government that if on
on the facts there should be serious injustice it still leaves
the Board of Railway Commissioners power to act under
Section 29 of the Railway Act, to wit, viz
may refuse, rescind, change, alter or vary
decision made by it."
Eelieve me, yours very truly,
MARTIN BURRELL.

Mr. Griffith believes that"if

P. G. E. CONSTRUCTION
TO BE RUSHED
Special to thc Herald.
Vancouver, March 7.-Patrick
Welch announced today that construction work is to be extended
immediately along the entire
route of the Pacific Great Eastern to Fort George. Work for
three thousand more men will be
provided. Five hundred of Vancouver's unemployed have been
given work on the Squamish
section.
Pine River Pass to the eastern
boundary of British Columbia.
Hundreds of men will soon be released from construction work on
the Grand Trunk Pacific. These
it is proposed will be turned
loose on the new line, on which
work must start within three
months of the date of passage of
the act by the Legislature. The
line is to be completed in two
years.
This is the feature of the
coming legislation that will be
particularly interesting to Washington, D.C. It is well known
that eventual connection, with
Alaska by a north-and-south railway meeting the Pacific Gnat
Eastern is a favorite theme with
Premier McBride, a dream he
expects will come true and that
comparatively soon.   If this rail-
trade it will bring to Vancouver.
It is stated that the proposed
route from Prince George will be
almost due north for a distance
of 140 miles, where the Rockies
will be penetrated at Pine River,
and from there, swinging northeastward, the line is to traverse
the open country for a couple of
hundred miles to the Alberta
boundary. Early completion of
the line is urged to be important
that the trade route may be
opened to Vancouver rather than
be established by the McArthur
line, now building from Edmonton, The country is described
as mostly well-wooded and rolling, often giving place to bush-
besprinkled prairie. Railway
construction will naturally not
be nearly as heavy as in southern British Columbia.

Hazelton Herald.—The daily press in the province have
announced that the government would sell its lots in Fort
George in May and that it was expected that $2,000,000
u";':'1 be taken from the people.   If tlie government
would sel
its lots in some of the other numerous town-
With the approach of the good old
sumner time has brought to our city
a multitude of people congregated
from tl e four corners of the earth,
a sample of which can be seen any
afternoon on Hamilton Avenue,
which presents a swimming sea of
mingled faces articulating every
language, dialect and gibberage in
the human vocabulary, and representing mostly every type of the
human race, from the "smart city
bnsiness man to the degenerated
hobo, whose sole means of existence
is to prey upon the hospitalities of
the hardworking and honest laborer
while exhilarated from the effects of
his holiday indulgence.
And while we can boast of the
greatest variation of the human
character, yet to the close observer
there is a common trait which is
a peculiar characteristic of the pioneer element that unconsciously
sends them in advance and which is
characterised by an instinctive business acumen, and demonstaated in
this case from the fact that ninety
per cent, of them end up by purchasing their goods at Kennedy-
Blair's store, where we have the
greatest Bale on ever put forth in
Central B.C. And when it comes to
prices we have established a pre-!
cedent almost astonishing.
Space will not allow us to quote
prices, but here are some of them.
Magnificent Blankets, per pair $4.00
Beautiful Pillows        . .     .85
Swell Workmen's Pants . 2.25

would lie welcomed at this time. A sale in several more

* T1IDber Royalties Act, just in-
, in the legislature by Hon.
Jv r  Ross, settles the long mooted
nation   of   tlie   *eadJustment of
"''^Ui,s on timber for the next five
Lars and lays out  a  plan  for readjustment at the close of every five
;,,„■ period to cover all future pay-
ntB to the close of the year 19.54.
The chief change in the fixing and
Electing of royalties provided for
l,e act Is that the system of long
Burement   will   be   uniform all
, ti,e province, and after the end
in i
iiu1:
eve
. , inst live year period, which
wplres December 331, 1919, all fu-
lu|.e increase* or royalties Bhall be
rrived at on a calculation of the
wholesale selling price of lumber
during tlie five years just ended.
\ vearly record of all lumber sales
u to be kept and the average whole-
pale price arrived at for the whole
province. A slated price of $18 per
tl,0UBand feci is exempted as being
die price allowed for the cost of pro-
•juctlon and profit, and tho addition-
royalty will be calculated on the
Increase in the wholesale price of
|un,bor above the $18 mark.
In iiie five years from 1920 the
government will increase the royalties by 26 per cent, of the increase
above
five s
years
Increi

in iii
(18 per thousand feet ln the
■ar period ended. In the five
from 1925 the royalty will bu
seel 30 per -sent, of the In-
above $18 per thousand feet
previous five years.
a stinting point In this sys-
i in of fixing timber royalties the
government will, on January 1, 1915,
lix the royalties for the first five
is at 86 centB per thousand feet
or, all lumber cut on crown lands
[ii cents per thousand feet on all
vest of tlic Cascade mountains, and
limber cut east of the Cascades, with
certain exemptions.
WILD ANIMALS ARE
ON THE INCREASE
Reports from various ports of the
province agree that cougar are increasing. Not only cougar, but in lesser
degree, coyotes, lynx and owls are also
declared to be increasing. The uniformity of the reports makes it appear
certain that they are all well founded.
The increase in the number of cougar
i attributed by the gams officers to
.He increase of deer, as a risult of the
ipplicaiion of Ihe game laws, and the
*re of the animal during the close
ieason. Similarly the increase in
loyotes, lynx and owls is attributed to
he increase in rabbits. It is claimed
hat the economic interpretation of
listory extends to the animal kingdom,
ind that there is a very close connec-
ion between the plentifulness of food
mil the rapid increase of the various
inimals. Cougar, like all animal of the
lat tribe, are prolific animals, but in
irnes anil places where^deer are scarce,
tis said that a litter of cougar cubs
1 often all die while the mother is
.way seeking a deer to feed herself
ind her young. When dear are plenti-
'ul the female cougar usually manages
nrear all her young. The sacie law
f naturj applies to the coyotes, lynx
nd owls, who depend largely upon
ibbits fur their food supply.
THE BOXING CONTEST
The boxing contest staged in the
heatre last Thursday evening drew a
Mr-sized audience who paid a long
fi'-e for the poorest entertainment
Ver witnessed in these parts. Fight-
\g McKay and One-round Holbrook
'ere lulled to go ten rounds in the
eature event, but the one-round gen-
lenian evidently did not care to pro-
PS" the contest any further than the
H period, so laid himself gently
luw*i on the linoleum while the referee
tainted ten, though he outweighed his
Pponsnt, McKay, by perhaps 25 pounds.
' was a plain case of lay-down as
N*e was net a blow Btruck with
liracient force to upset a five-year-
1 hoy.
When promoters realize that such
W»Ue fakes as that of Thursday
Ignt are sounding the death knell of
ne boxing game perhaps they will
uniincm enough sporting spirit to
enounce ihe participants   from  the
"P-dfl and return the public their

Says Prominent Engineer-Finished
Next Year.
Victoria, Feb. 28.-That the Pacific
Great Eastern railway have now four
th0Usand men at work on the line is
the statement made by J. Callagham a
orominent engineer connected with
he construction of the line from Vancouver to Fort George. He came into
town yesterday to join Mr. Stewart of
the well-known partners, but the
hitler left yesterday for the scene of
operations.
•■The line is now about 208 miles
from Vancouver," said Mr. Callagham
"and of course work is proceeding along
„|| that length, at work on grading.
We are under contract to finish the
line by August, 1915, and by every
indication at the present time there
appears to be nothing in the way of.
that being fulfilled. Of course there
arc many rough spots in the work and
difficulties are always cropping   up.
"The right-of-way between Clinton
and Vancouver has been particularly
strenuous work, with tunneling and
blasting to be done nearly all the time.
The road along some of the lakes and
nt Howe Sound is also very hard work.
Ko, we are having no labor trouble at
all along the line. There has been no
strike on the Pacific Great Eastern
since we started, nor do I think there
will be any.
■•I personally think Squamish is an
excellent name for terminus, in that it
preserves the history and traditions of
„f the place so excellently. The old
name of Newport would likely have
died out as many new names do, but
'Squamish' is so intimately connected
with the history of the whole diatrict,
with its lirst inhabitants, and even the
waters that flow near it, that the name
will be perpetuated to the advantage
not only of the town, but the people
who live here.
 '  " "**'* shooting on a hill

rocks so as to get at a rabbit which
had taken shelter at the back of
them, discovered a vast cavern containing some magnificent stalactite,
and leaning against the wall 35 pet-
rifted skeletons ot human beings.
Archeologlsts believe these to be the
remains of warriors In the olden days
who took refuge In the cave and were
then walled In by their enemies.
