Owing to the delay occasioned by the break in
e machinery of the boat the party were unable
carry out their intention of making the trip
rough to Tete Jaune Cache, as engagements on
ie coast call the Premier to the Capital before the
it of the month. [
^^The boat was tied up here only long enough to

McBride'up the Fraser as far as the mouth of
Willow river, about twenty-five miles north of
|here.   A landing was made at that point and
I partjt,-disembarked to examine the splendid
Id meadow land which lies around the mouth
,e Willow.   Mr. McBride showed keen interest
king over the land and remarked upon its
it productiveness in its wild state.
he party arrived here on the return trip at six
lock and left in conveyances for the Fort George
iwnsite on the Nechaco river immediately after.
ime of the members of his party stayed at the
tel on the Natural Resources Security Com-
ny's townsite for dinner, the Premier however,
turning to South Fort George to dine with a few
ffcuests on the Steamer B. X.
A public meeting was held in the new store of
illiam Blair & Company, on second street, at
o'clock, at which time Mr. McBride spoke at
ie length upon the great future in store for this
iuntry and intimated his intention of assisting in
e granting of largely increased appropriations

for work on roads, trails and bridges in this
lion.   Mr. Sutton, president of the local Con-
rvative association,  who  occupied the chair,
lied upon other members of the Premier's party
lor a few words, all of whom responded readily to
e request and interesting addressc; were deliv-
ired by Lord Dunmore, -whose advocacy in the

STEAMER CHILCOTIN IS DAMAGED
|An unfortunate accident occurred to the Fort
eorge    Lumber  and   Navigation   company's
amer Chilcotin whilst passing through the Fort
orge canyon on the return from her maiden trip
t Tuesday.   It appears that whilst running the
(lough channel a heavy side current threw her
jainst the rock island on her port side.   Although
ie collision was slight the hog chains parted immediately and the ferrand king post snapped above
lie upper deck.    On examination it was found
lat flaws in the iron of the hog chains was largely
^sponsible for the serious damage resulting from
he impact. The Chilcotin returned here and is
|ow laid up, and it is understood that she will be
at of commission for the balance of the season.
•***,<
THE FORT GEORGE BF THE FUTURE
SOUTH   FORT GEORGE   SHOULD    INCORPORATE.   MUNICIPAL GOVERNMENT
•     ESSENTIAL IN NEAR FUTURE.
The Incorporation of the municipality of South
Fort George should be vigorously promoted by the
citizens of this place as soon as the increase in the
population has reached the statutory requirements
in this regard.
At the present time South Fort George is too
busy just growing and building to pay much attention to the requirements of city regulations, and
owing to the fact that the Government has not
seen fit to appoint a Provincial Constable to do
police duty in this section an undesirable element
have been gaining too secure a foothold here. Our
biased contemporary in the woods has been attacking in bitter, vitrolic language the leading citizens
of South Fort George for not suppressing the
"blind pigs" and gambling houses on this town-
site. Now if the Tribune wants to see this town
rid of these undesirable citizens let it name the
miscreants and help to secure convictions. Until
last week the paper in question was published here
in South Fort George, having been moved, by
request, last Monday to the Natural Resources
townsite where it belongs. Within two feet of the
Tribune's office here, once ran wide open a "blind
pig" and the irony of this is found in the fact
that the "pig" referred to used as its sty the old
Tribune building in which John Houston, the
founder of that journal, and the man who fought
every "blind pig" in Prince Rupert, worked himself into his grave to sustain the publication of the
Tribune, bought after his death by the townsite
company he had repeatedly attacked.
We deplore the fact that illegal liquor selling
has heen, and is now carried on on this townsite,
as it would be on the Fort George townsite if the
population there were larger. Without police here
who is to secure convictions? This week two of
our Justices of the Peace were able to secure evidence sufficient to order the suspects out of town
but not to convict, and two other summons have
since been issued.
Before Fort George ever becomes a city proper
it will first be a roaring construction camp with all
its inevitable following of tin-horn gamblers, and
come-on men, "women in red" and "blind pigs."
Realising this the people of South Fort George
should take steps to have the reins of municipal
control in their own hands in order that they may
govern South Fort George as a young and ambitious western city should be governed during
the strenuous time of railroad construction.
Fort George is today trading entirely upon the
prospects of her future, and whilst it is a generally
acknowledged fact that sooner or later a city of
importance will rise here, there is at present absolutely no means of even approximately estimating
the future importance of this city-to-be in comparison with the established centres of industry in
British Columbia today.
The Herald does not hesitate to predict that
there will be ten thousand people here in the next
five years or that by that period a direct railroad
line down the Fraser valley from Fort George will
be completed.
The first really great influx into this section will
assuredly start next year and will increase annually thereafter. Locations for construction camps
are already made and it is understood that the
G. T. P. will build boats for the Fraser river service next winter for preliminary construction work
during the summer of 1911.
Construction will bring more people to Fort
George than to any other point on the projected
line between the Yellowhead Pass and Prince Rupert, after it has been started. The reason for
this is the stragetic location of the place. Fort
George is situated at the radiating centre of a
navigable waterway system a thousand miles in
extent. These river highways from the South up
the Fraser river, East from the Yellowhead, down
the same river, and West from the western end of
construction which will connect with the Nechaco
waterway system, will all be traversed by thousands in the next few years, with Fort George as
the natural distributing centre.
Fort George wants police protection, a licenced
hotel in order that the sale of liquor may be properly regulated, and local control of local matters.
The Provincial Government are drawing enormous revenues from the Fort Gorge District and
the few essential needs of this community should
be immediately supplied by the Departments in
whose power it rests to grant them.
A TALE BFJWfl CITIES
SOME FACTS REGARDING EXISTING CONDITIONS AT SOUTH FORT GEORGE
AND   FORT   GEORGE.
i _
Comparisons are odious, yet to establish the
truth regarding any subject which has become
garbled by the conflicting reports of opposing interests a comparative review of the conditions
affecting their interests is the most ovious recourse for public enlightenment.
The fact that there exists an unhealthy rivalry
between the two young cities of South Fort George
on the Fraser river, and of Fort George on the
Nechaco river here is too apparent to be worthy of
comment, yet in this regard it devolves upon the
Herald as the representative organ of South Fort
George to draw the following comparisons between the two places, which we believe, the march
of progress will eventually unite, and this difference be obliterated by time. This action is at this
time however, unavoidable owing to the attitude
of our contemporary on the townsite owned by the
Natural Resources Security Company, the Tribune,
a paper that is failing utterly in its duty to its
readers by wording its articles and items in such
a manner that its readers are not able to form any
idea of the relative state of the progress and development of the different townsites. We have
every reason to believe that the Tribune«is owned
from its press to its policy, by the Natural Resources Security Company, which naturally explains its
attitude, yet we do not intend to allow that publication tQ credit to the Natural Resources Security
Company's townsite the development work that is
in progress at South Fort George, a townsite that
is owned by a corporation called the Northern Development Company, whilst at the same time the
organ in question is publishing matter detrimental
to the South Fort George interests.

OUR DISTINGUISHED VISITORS
The arrival in South Fort
George yesterday of Premier
McBride and his distinguished
companions of the trip through
the Northern Interior, seems to
us to foretell the commencement
of en era of a wider and more
complete acknowledgement of a
universal belief in the ultimate
destiny of this place to he the
site, not of a city but of a metropolis,
Yesterday for the first time in
British Columbia history that a
Premier of this Province set foot
on the soil of Fort George, geographically and stragetically the
hub of the Province.
With the Premier came men
whose names stand synonymous
with great deeds the world over.
Lord Dunmore one of the most
distinguished members of the
House of Peers; Norton Griffiths
M.P., the head of one of the
' greatest railroad contracting
firms in the world; Harry Brit-
tain, the father of the Imperial
Press Conferance of last year;
F. Carter-Cotton, until recently
Editor of the Vancouver News
Advertiser, and C. H. Lugrin,
editor of the Victoria Colonist,
both brilliant journalists. These
men have been here and have
gone away well pleased with what
they have observed. The world
at large will hear of the strenuous little town on the banks of
the upper Fraser river from
them, and we believe that Fort
Georg*e will reap very material
benefit from their reports.
We regret that the late arrival
of the party here precludes us
from devoting more space to the
subject. To write simple stereotyped announcements of the comings and goings of this party of
eminent though unasuming and
friendly visitors who strayed so
far from the beaten track to see
our country does not suffice. Together with Mr. McBride, the
most progressive Premier, the
Province has yet known, whose
great personality impresses
everyone with whom he comes in
contact, the citizens of South
Fort George will not readily forget their pleasure of yesterday's
meeting.
plying their trades in the midst
of the present settlement.
We realize that these "necessary evils" must and will exist
in spite of the most, determined
efforts of the representatives of
law and order until permanent
way has been competed through
this district, but we would advocate that every effort be made
both by the people of this community and by the responsible
authorities to assist, in the enforcement of the new and stringent regulations governing the
sale of liquor.
The Herald does not wish to be
identified amongst the ranks of
the narrow minded, moralizing,
reform howling press the editor
has been known to take a drink
himself but what we deplore is
the presence of gambling houses
and "blind-pigs" in the midst of
our community. There are in
Fort George today some fifteen
of the whitest kind of white
women that ever helped by* their
splendid example of optimism, to
build up a city in the days of its
infancy, and the Herald intends
to assist in every way in eliminating any element which does
not respect their presence here.
This is only a preliminary canter in comparison with the race
that we intend to run against
these people if they do not conduct their operations with more
respect to the public. If there
must be gambling joints and
"blind pigs" here let them locate
their man-traps amongst the tall
timber and not in the midst of
this community.
A determined effort has been
started this week by the local
Justices of the Peace to rid the
town of gambling dives and
"blind pigs."
Without the presence of any
form of police protection here
this disreputable element will
however continue to flourish.
The duties of Peace Officer does
not include the policing of their
cities of residence but is rather
to hand out decisions on cases
within their jurisdiction brought
before them by the regular police.
Until the completion of construction Fort George will be
frequented by the usual horde of
easy-money gentry who follow
the big pay-rolls of the construction camp to vanish with the appearance of schedule time-tables.
Some of the forerunners of this
swarm are already here and are
A TALE OF TWO CITIES.
Many of the business houses
in South Fort George occupy well
finished frame buildings which
would be a credit to any town.
Their owners are enthusiastic believers in the future of this place
and many of those who have
erected temporary buildings intend to build permanent places
of business on their lots in the
near future.
Of the four business houses on
the Fort George townsite we can
not consider one to have established thereon independent lines.
The foregoing statistics supply
most convincing evidence showing that South Fort George is today the centre of population here
and that Fort George on the Nechaco river is at present more of
a townsite than a town. These
are establised facts with which
the local public are cognizant,
but to the great majority of the
investing multitudes who regard
Fort George at large as a profitable field for investment we
would advise a personal examination of any property under consideration before investing on
speculative lines.
We do not wish to depreciate
in any manner the townsite of
the Natural Resources Security
Company, registered under the
name of Fort George for we believe that this property together
with others in close proximity to
the Indian Reserve No. L, here
will undoubtedly rise on the Indian reserve here, if the Grand
Trunk Pacific people are able to
acquire it as chcjimstanc.es indicate.
Our object in printing this
article is to counteract the effect
of reports persistantly circulated
by some of our contemporaries
which are either unaware of true
conditions here or are ' 'out for the
money" to such an extent that
they prostitute their news columns by printing statements
contrary to their judgment.
ITEMS OF INTEREST FROM PESNEL
The "Chilcotin" the new steamer of
the Port George Lumber and Navigation Company, arrived in Quesnel on
its trial trip on Wednesday morning,
S-ihe presented a fine appearance,
steaming up the river steadily, and
practically without a. perceptible bow
wave. She was loudly greeted by
the whistle of the Heid saw mill,
which she answered promptly. The
major part of the citizens were down
to see the new craft dock ami were
pieased to go aboard and inspect her
construction and appointments,
A favorable opportunity was afforded to compare the latest addition to the river fleet with the steamer "11.X." that arrived at noon,
ami docked to the stern of the new
vessel. At a glance it appeared that
the two steamers were practically
similar, hut on closer view It could
Ie seal that the "Chilcotin" wan
narrower and longer than the "IS.X."
She is not fitted up as luxuriantly
as the B.X. Company's boat but still
as elegant as the trade warrants.
Some who claim to know, state that
the new steamer will develop more
speed, however. This remains to be
demonstrated, and will excite considerable interest among the enthusiastic adherents of both lines.
Captain A. F. Dohcrty is in command of the "Chilcotin," and 0. A.
Dean, chief engineer. Frank Davit is
mate; Jake Collins, second mate, J.
Omand, assistant engineer, and 1).
Applegnte, former agent of the company at Soda Creek, purser. Dan.
McPhee, the veteran marine builder,
is to be credited with the able construction of the new craft.
The "Chilcotin" will have accommodations for about fifty passengers,
having twenty-two staterooms with
two berths each and two family state
rooms with dodble lower berths aud
single upper berths. Running water,
bet an.l cold, is provided for each
room. There are several lavatories,
and a luxuriant, hath room.
The boat is 135 feet in length and
24 foot beam, having a main, promenade and Texas decks. The engine
is a Doty Compound Condensing engine with 315 I.H.P. The boiler is a
Hollander high pressure boiler with a
maximum ol 225 pounds of steam
pressure. The vessel steamed up
from Soda Creek on the initial trip,
however, with only 120 pounds of
steam and made from 24 to 27 revolutions of the 15-foot paddle wheel.
Running at maximum speed she will
produce about 35 revolutions per
minute.
The boat will have a capacity of
about 110 tons of freight. On the
trial trip she brought up 84 tons to
Qui sue!, and will take about 60 tons'
to Fort George.
A commodious ladies' parlor and
gentlemen's smoking room is provided on the promenade deck and the
dining hall runs practically the full
length of the vessel. The dining ta-
bler, however, will be at right angles; instead of one long table there
will be four smaller ones. The upholstering and hangings will be of
green. The company colors on the
flag flying at the stem are red, white
and blue, with the initials of the
company m white on the center
ground.
As a whole the Fort George Lumber & Navigation Company may well
be proud of the new steamer and the
expenditure oi around $50,COO in her
construction will no doubt be a paying investment in the Fraser River
trade that will greatly increase as
the country  develops.
The "Chilcotin" left late Thursday
afternoon on I cr first trip to Fort
George. The well wishing of Quesnel
goes with her.

HEKE AND THERE
The ladies of Quesnel have imhr-
taken a most praiseworthy.. rr. ve-
mcnt and organized u Ladies' Auxiliary to the Quesnel Hospital. A
meeting was held Wednesday afternoon in Occidental Hall, which was
very well attended and much enthusiasm aroused.
The Auxiliary will co-operate with
the Hospital Board and lend every
assistance within the power of Its
nembers. who will pay certain nominal fees monthly. The ladies accept
the responsibility of attending to the
furnishings which arc peculiarly within the province of ladies, supplying
linens, uniforms, and seeing that all
needful details aro attended to. These
things will be done, however, with
the sanction of the Board whose authority will be supreme, thus avoiding any embarassment over poMcy,
•tc. Meetings will be held from time
' to time when sewing will be done,
and plans discussed while at work.
At the meeting Wednesday Vis.
Carry took the chair, and the following officers were elected: Mrs. Boh-
anon was elected Hon. President, as
being the pioneer lady in Quesnel.
Mrs. John McLean and Mrs. St. Laurent were also elected to honorary
positions. The active President will
be Mrs. Wm. Bwing; Mrs. Hill, vlce-
President; Mrs. Claude Foot, Secretary, and Mrs. John A. Fraser, treasurer. The Executive Committee
[will be composed of Mrs, E. Kepner,
[Mrs. Wm. Blair, Mrs. Leonard, Mrs.
(Brady and Miss Cameron.
The members of the Hospital Board
vill have to acquire considerable activity if they expect to match the
ladies in the activity that they have
already shown. .
Mr. W. E. Scott, the Deputy Minister of Agriculture makes the announcement that within a month the
sites for the demonstration orchards
about to be established by the- Provincial government, will be finally

Cariboo will be represented in the
mineral exhibits at the Mining Exhibition to be held at Vancouver on
August 15th to 20th. T. Ci. Murray,
who recently made the discovery of a
rich and permanent copper deposit
near Hydraulic, has been sent to Van
couver by those who are interested in
the property with him, to exhibit the
quartz, both of copper and gold.
Mr. Murray will endeavor to interest capital in the property and has
been authorized to negotiate a sale.
He has several photOB of the vein,
and ample samples of the quartz to
exhibit.
Not only will the oopper quartz be

The steamer "Quesnel" is on the
ways at Soda Creek, and some repairs are being made to uer hull.
She will not be placed in the regular
run up the Fraser, being held solely
as an emergency boat.
The "Fort Fraser" is at 'Soda
Creek and will soon make a trip to
Fort George and probably up the
Fraser. The officers are now on the
way from the Coast to Soda Creek,
and when they arrive the vessel will
again be placed in commission. It
has been necessary to repair part of
' the machinery that sustained an accident recently on the trip to Tete
Jaune Cache.
Tenders were received* at the public
meeting held Thursday evening for
the Quesnel Hospital, and two local
Contractors presented bids for the
construction on the plans dnuvn up.
Inasmuch as the amounts were too
large for the funds available, the
committee was instructed by the
i meeting to modify the plans of the
building with the idea of reducing
. original cost and permit future enlargement.
The plan as modified will be sub.
mitted to the lowest tenderer. The
estimate will be returned early the
coming week and tne actual construction of the hospital probably be
commenced before the end of the present month.
Harry Joyce and John Strand presented bids, the former's bid being
14,250 and the hitter's, $2,950.
GOSSIP FROM PRINCE RUPERT
Who are rough necks? They are
men who toil in the mines or upon
the seas or on the farms. They are
men who surveyed and blasted rock
out of Prince Rupert, who tanned
leather and who split rails. Whenever men have worked under the
burning sun or nipping air or in
dust-darkened mines until their bands
and faces have been roughened by
toil they have been scornfully referred to by self-styled "better clement"
as "rough nocks." The term is common among railway mon and is used
111 a spirit erf pleasantry.

RICHEST OF ALL SHEEP CREEK
STRIKES.
Nelson—Barney drill, who has just

word of a strike which is said to be
the richest ever made even in that
camp of rich strikes. It waB made
outside of the belt recently bonded
from Dr. Willson and J. G. Devlin
to Vancouver and New York men.
At 130 feet on the cross-cut to open

ol which runs from $800 to $1,000 a
ton.
GRAND TRUNK
LOSES MILLION.
The recent Btrikc on the Grand
Trunk cost that railway a round million dollars, or more. A statemcut
issued by the road covering its traffic earnings for the last ten days of
July shows a decrease of $448,320 in
receipts, but this includes only a
part of the economic wreckage caused by the strike.
The official statement is for the
period from July 22 to July 31 inclusive. The strike began three days
before July 22 and lasted two days
after the 31st so that $224,000 may
fully be added to the amount of decrease in the report, making it $072,-

MOUNT ASSINABOINU still.
UNSCALED
Mount Asainlboine, known bb "the
Matterhorn of the Rockies," has been
scaled once again, and the most famous name of all, that of Dr. Tom G.
Longstafl, has been added to the
small coterie of mountain climbers
who have accomplished the feat. Dr.
Longstafl is a Himalayan explorer of
world wide fame. He is one, of the
foremost original British mountaineers of the day. Describipg his feat
in a letter to his father, Lieutenant
Colonel Longstafl, who is at present
on a visit to Victoria the explorer
sayBi
"I found Mount Assiniboin a hard
nut to crack owing to t\c thi'k covering of powder y snow. My companion on the elit.it> was Mr. Rudolf Semmer, one of the Rocky
Mountain guides a first-class man.
The last stage of the journey was
one of twenty-one hours without a
halt for food. In the final eflffort
we were nearly beaten by a sixty-
foot cliff at the top, but we managed to scale it. We made the ascent
by the west face over a route hitherto unattended. We descended by
the north ridge, the route chosen by
the few men who have already accomplished the feat."
Dr. Longstafl is now the guest of
the Alpine Club of Canada, which
was recently encamped near Laggan.
It was before proceeding there that
he ascended Mount Assiniboine, a
feat accomplished during the first
fortnight of the present month.
R. R. Carver, of New Westminster,
is the name of the new employee in
John A. Fraser's store. Mr. Carver
is a man of experience in the merchandise line which has already been
evidenced by the courtesy and deftness in which he conducts the business that goes over the counter, and
the friends he has made this, the
