RE-DISCOVERY OF OED
PLACER DIGGINGS
Tlie gold strike on Sibola Creek
and Tahtsa River, sixty-five
miles sonth of Smithers, reached
by the Morice river trail, turns
out to lie a re-discovery of old
diggings with an interesting-
history.
"Kid" Price, who has just located the pay on Sibola Creek,
says he found an old sluice box,
rotten with age, and the new
placer district has been connected with the story of the two
missing prospectors, an incident
of British Columbia mining in
the early seventies.
A miner from the Cariboo district is said to have followed the
Morice river Indian trail and originally located the new diggings
at that time. The season being
late he went to Victoria to winter, intending to return in the
following spring and work the
rich placers he believed he had
found. But he fell sick and died
in Victoria during the winter.
He told of his discovery, however, to two miners, who set out |
early in the spring to wash out
the gold their dead comrade had
found. After going into the,
country they were never heard;
of again and it was supposed j
they were both killed by Indians, j
In those days this was the usual
explanation when a prospector
disappeared.
Old-timers now believe Price
has found the abandoned diggings and that he is the first
white man to reach those streams
since the two miners perished
almost forty years ago.
Price has more than once made
a statement that he would one
day find rich placers in the Morice river basin, and it is believed
he has been seeking this lost
placer for several years. During
the past few seasons he has
haunted the Morice river basin,
trapping throughout the mountain district known only to the
Indians during the winters and
prospecting in summer. This
spring he brought in furs valued
at $1200. His discovery of pay
in the Sibola Creek appears to
have been made in June and rumors have been current for the
past two months, but nothing of
a definite nature was known until the recent stampede.
The strike is on the eastern
slope of the Coast Ran Re of
mountains and the gold is coarse,
having apparently been ground
from the nearby mountain rocks
by the slow action of glaciers.
weighing up to thirty cents, no nuggets having been reported so far.
Now tbat the staking rush has subsided, tlle locators will undertake the
prospecting of their ground, and definite news of the value of the strike
should soon be known.
"Kid" Price, the discoverer, who
named Cibola Creek, lias much confidence in the diggings and has
stakefl land for a townsite wliich he
insends to name Nugget City. "Kid"
Price was a well known character
here in the early days. He was in
South Port George in 1908 with Loui
Peterson and others, and staked
timber limits on the upper Fraser
with the well known trapper Jack
Evans. Price has made and lost several fortunes.
Colin 11. Munro, one of the stakers
ol tlie new Cibola gold strike, hns
returned with the most definite in
formation so far received in regard
to the distriet. He says tlie discovery
hears every indication of being a
genuine strike and is on a tributary1
of the Tahtsa river which runs into
an arm of Ootsa Lake.
Munro was about the first stam-
pedcr to reach the diggings and located claim No. H below discovery.
He believes* it to be good ground but
having no shovel hei did not !spend
much time on thc creek, leaving three
hours alter his arrival. In tbat time
ten other stampeders reached thc
camp, and in the lirst ten miles
homeward he met a score of others
rushing over the trail via Nadina,
while at least fifty others had taken
the Morice rivcr trail. The trip can
he made from Smithers, the new
divisional poiut on tho G.T.P. in
the llulkley valley, with horses by
an old Indian trail in 3 days.
Some gold .panned from the rim has
been brought out and is fairly coarse
Prince Rupert History
Being Repeated Here
Vancouver, Sept. 17.-History
is being repeated today in Dominion hall. Frank A. Ellis, auctioneer from Prince Rupert, is selling
double corners and lots in the G.
T.P. townsite of Prince George
to all and sundry who are eagerly bidding for the choicer prop-
ties.
The hall is nearly filled with
buyers and the noise of their bidding, the rustle of the big maps
as they are folded and unfolded
and the sharp, staccato words of
the auctioneer as the bids go up
and up and up, all combine to
resemble that famous auction of
Prince Rupert lots held in the
Imperial rink years ago.
Mr. Ellis told the crowd that
the railway would certainly build
a station at the foot of George
street in the new town, The
railway board told railway company to build its station nearer
Fort George, and if the railway
company cannot win its appeal it
will build a station in Fort George
and another in Prince George as
well.
The auctioneer announced too
that Princess Square would be
reserved for a city hall site and
park. This square is just across
Patricia avenue from Connaught
Park, the highest point in the
townsite.
The up-town offices of the railway company will be located in
block 149. between George and
Queen streets and Fourth and
Fifth avenues. George street
will be the main business thoroughfare of Prince George.
TO BOOST THE ASHCROFT SPUO
In order to better place the famous
potatoes of the Ashcroft district on
the tnbles of British Columbia, an
association known as the Ashcroft
Distriet. I'otato Growers Association
has just been formed. It represents
the potato growers along the O.P.R.
main line from Savona to Spcnce's
Bridge.
The association will try and interest the people of British Columbia in
potato growing to tbe extent that
they will buy the Ashcroft potato in
preference to tubers grown in the
United Statesf Great care will be
taken to see that only the choicest
of "spuds" are sent to tbe markets
of Vancouver and other points in thc
province, and all the potatoes will
be very carefully graded,
A letter has been received from the
new association asking the Vancouver Progress Club to incorporate
Ashcroft potatoes ns well as Okanagan fruit in its campaign for "B,
O.  Produce for B. O. People."

THEATRE TO
HAMILTON STREET
Well-known    Local    Playhouse
Will Shortly Open in New
Location With Modern
Features
The Northern Interior Amusemdnt
Company Ltd., are moving their big
theatre from its old location on
Fourth street, next to the Herald
office, to a lot opposite the Northern
Hotel,, on Hamilton avenue.
The theatre is being moved by contractors Hilbert & Sullivan, and it
is now ws'll on its way to the new
location.
Associated with the Northern Interior Amusement Company in the
new enterprise are several prominent
business men of this city.
It is the intention of the company
to present the most up-to-date films
and a large furnace is being installed in the building.
Having its own electric light plant
for the generation to the arc, the
theatre, will run matinees, and will
offer vaudeville features from, time
to time.
The moving of the Fort George
Theatre has been rendered necessary
by the growth ot the, town at the
north end. The theatre was built in
1911 by Messrs. Close, Brown and
Daniell. On the night of June 30th.
of that year, a few hours before the
big theatre opened its doors, the
first Northern Hotel, only half a
block distant, was burned to the
ground. The hotel was moved to the
other end of the town when it rebuilt, and the theatre has since been
too far from the business centre to
fetch the crowds.
NO SQUATTERS ON
PRINCE GEORGE TOWN
Government Takes Stand That
Will  Be Appreciated By
The Real  Investor
The government has taken action
in the matter of the Bquatters on
government lots in the Prince George
townsite by ordering  their removal.
It is now distinctly understood
tbat squatters will not be tolerated
on the government lots on the G.T.P'
townsite, and the action iB generally
npproved of.
It is a good thing that the government has taken the action recorded, as had the matter been allowed
to progress the reserve would by now
be littered with the unsightly buildings of the lot jumpers.
So common had the practice of
squatting become that "locators"
had already commenced their lucrative business of locating the
would-be squatter on a choice government lot for the trifling sum of
THE LOWLY COW
ARM ALMOST SEVERED
BY DRUNKEN POLE
Inoffensive Man The Victim of
Brutal Assault on Riverfront Yesterday
With his arm nearly severed at the
elbow by a blow from an ax in the
hands of a drunken Pole, Henry Hack-
man, an inoffensive man who conducts
a small fruit and tobacco stand on the
Hudson Bay waterfront, is lying in the
hospital here.
The assault was entirely unprovoked,
according to local report. The assailant, a Pole named Aaron Veelek, had
taken some goods from Hack man's
stand, refusing payment, and when remonstrated with by Hackman pushed
him down, grabbed an ax lying near
and with one blow almost severed
Hackman's arm at the elbow. Spectators of the assault disarmed Vedek before he had the opportunity of killing
his prostrate victim, as he evidently
intended to do.
When the police attempted to place
Vedek under arrest two other Poles,
John Vedek, a brother of the assailant,
and Nazar Percxanco, took a hand
against the police, with the result that
both are in jail with charges of assaulting peace officers.
The assault was a particularly brutal
and cowardly one, as besides being a
man of frail physique Hackman is a
cripple. The unfortunate victim is now
under the care of Dr. Lazier, who is
doin*; all possible to save the injured
member. Both bones of the arm were
fractured and only part of the muscles
and ligaments were unsevered.
The accused appeared before Magistrate Heme today and were remanded
for eight days, when it is hoped Hack-
man will be in condition to appear at
the hearing.
INSPECTION TRIP
MDSTSATISFACTDRY
President Chamberlin Says Conditions Are Much Better
Than He Expected
In the jurisprudence of British Columbia a lowly red cow promises to take
a prominent place. Barristers in future
will follow this litigious bovine through
the law reports much in the same way
as people today follow an original cow
path that has become a city street.
The cow that is making legal precedent
was owned by the New England Company, a wealthy English missionary
society which owns a farm near Lytton
where youthful Siwashes are taught
the art of farming. Bossie one day
disappeared and her dead body was
found in the yard of a resident of
Lytton. An information was laid for
cattle stealing but later dismissed. An
action was then brought for malicious
persecution by thc suspect, which likewise failed. The original charge was
then brought before the grand jury
and a true bill found, but a jury acquitted the defendant. The latter is
now suing a second time for damages.
Gentle Bossie is long since dead but
attorney's fees go marching on. In
one of the actions a legal gentleman
has become liable for a bill of costi
amounting to $942.
On his return to Ottawa, President
Chamberlin, of the Grand Trunk Pacific, made a statement in regard to conditions he found in the northwest during his recent trip of inspection over
the National Transcontinental. He
said: "After leaving the transcontinental I went directly to the end of
construction in British Columbia, some
two hundred miles west of Edmonton.
Although the rainy season is on in
British Columbia at the present time,
work is progressing very rapidly and
we hope to have the line at Fort George
about the beginning of the New Year
and rails connected through to the Pacific coast early the next season. I
found conditions in the west much better than I expected. The grain crop is
the best that has ever been produced
in the northwest, and weather conditions have been perfect up to the present time, so that if they continue it
will probably be not only the largest
but the best quality of grain that has
ever been harvested. This, I am sure,
will do very much to relieve the financial depression which has been giving
us uneasiness for the past year. Although my trip west was hurried it has
been the most satisfactory that 1 have
ever made into that country."
W. F. COOKE RETURNS
Mr. W. F. Cooke, president of tho
Northern Lumber and Mercantile
Company Limited, returned here this
week from a long business stay at
Mile 53.
Speaking of construction Mr.
Cooke, stated that progretis all along
the line has been very rapid lately.
All along the grade the work is
being rushed to completion, nnd the
steel is making a steady advance of
about one mile a day.
The Bocial dance given last night
by J. McGaghran in the new roller
rink on Third Street, was well attended and highly epjoyed. Refreshments, good music and an excellent
floor all added to the gaiety of the
occasion. Mr. McGaghren intends to
make these dances a weekly event. FORT GEORGE HERALD

Interior of British Columbia.

Advertising Rales on Application
MO stronger demonstration of the western spirit of progress could be referred to than the sale of the
Prince George townsite. Within the space of a few
hours the large section of land which the Grand Trunk
Pacific Railway Company have chosen for the location of
the most important point in their system in interior
British Columbia-granted the impetus of the railroad
company's assurances—in its recently acquired form of
sub-division into city lots, sold for prices which compare
well with those asked for property in the business sections
of important cities where years of development have borne
fruit in materialized valuations.
The condition of the financial market was such that the
result of the sale comes as a vast surprise to even the
most optimistic of people. Had money not been "tight"
the large figures received at the auction would doubtless
have been greater yet by the presence of more bidders.
As it is the purchasers who secured property will profit
largely by the condition of the money market, which prevented an even larger competition for property offered.
The fact that an average price of over one thousand
dollars was obtained for every lot offered is strong proof
of the extraordinary interest manifested in the future of
the new city here. This average price beats all Pacific
Coast records.
That strong manufacturing concerns and the financial
institutions purchased properties for large sums indicated
the fact that the future of Prince George as a distributing and commercial centre is appreciated by the most
important of interests even before this condition is by
any means established. So well known, however, is the
physical importance of this location in its relation to the
gigantic scheme of development which is toward, that
the result of the Prince George auction sale merely bears
out in the convincing argument of cold cash the contentions which we have always advanced about the brilliant
future.
Beyond peradventure the status of values is now firmly indicated. The long drawn out attempt of certain
filibustering townsite promoters to bedeck their huge and
badly laid out, inflated properties with the trappings of
prosperity and development is going for naught. The
time is at hand when The Herald can take clown its file
and compare our forecast of conditions here with those
of the prostituted press which has done its share towards
''fooling a lot of the people a lot of the time."
South Fort George, the staunch little city where development has already taken such firm root, will benefit
largely by the development of Prince George. In line
with the section of the new townsite where development
will commence, this town will now continue its growth
towards the centre of development north of us, and in a
similar manner the development from the north will
grow to meet us.
rJTIE matter of municipal incorporation has at last become a very live issue. George John Hammond and
his supporters have butted in and with characteristic
nerve have arranged an incorporation scheme of their
own, on a magnitude compatible with the extent of their
townsiting operations. Not content, however, with
seeking the aid of the legislature, where Mr. Hammond
has many staunch friends and even associates, in procuring the incorporation of his city, he seeks also to kidnap
this town, and then Prince George, through the medium
of the law, the legislature and a large amount of nerve.
As the status of Mr. Hammond's request for special
legislation is at present entirely vague, The Herald is unable to inform its readers just what Mr. Hammond and
his friends are trying to "put over." The fact is apparent, however, that the work done by this town in an
effort to secure the right of self-government has been
brought to naught at the eleventh hour by the application of the subdivisions promoted by the Natural Resources Security Company, of which Mr. Hammond is the
head, fo incorporate an area which includes this townsite
by special act. This town was not consulted in the matter by any means, and is not only distinctly hostile to
any association with the Hammond townsites by reason
of the nature of their promotion and development, but
Soutli Port George has already prepared its own incorporation scheme and has carried it to the point where it
was presented to the government for approval.
Mr. Hammond's most recent
advertisements, shows the
intentions of that faction :
"ltis a fact that at the next
session of the Provincial egisla-
ture in Victoria an application
1 will be made for a special act incorporating the municipality ot
Kort George, which will take in
the existing subdivisions^ and
settle for all time the question ot
name foi' the future city.'

A Mysterious
Man	
A few nights ago a gentleman
entered our store wearing a gray
suit, a slouch hat and spoke with a
foreign accent.
His appearance seemed to indicate
a peculiar intelligence, and he impressed us of having seemed more
prosperous days, but as though adversity had crossed his path making
it necessary for him to battle for a
livelihood with the more coarser
elements.
He stood for a few moments
fumbling with a pair of pants, then
suddenly disappeared, and so did the
pants.
We do not wish to insinuate that
he stole the pants, but simply take
it that on account of the great rush
of business in out store that he was
neglected, became impatient, or
perhaps on account of temporary
embarrassment he carried them
away intending at some future date
to return and settle.
Of course, we have several hundred pairs just like the pair that
went missing, but the loss of the
pair knocks the profits.
But he did not get at our hats,
underwear, blankets, mackinaws,
up shirts or shoes. We can, therefore, afford to cut on these lines.
Drop in and see us open up our fall
clothing. We have just placed on
exhibition as exhibit A for the week,
two cords of blankets, one cord of
mackinaws, one cord of Stanfielel's
underwear, half cord of ladies'
coats, and a cord  and a half of sox.
Our hats, nails, roofing and building paper we haven't measured yet,
but will announce fheir cubical contents later on.
Our prices are infallible.

route via Giscombe seems to be
the favorite. They plan to trap
this winter and when spring
opens up to look the land over
with a view of going into the
cattle business.
Captain James A. Brown, formerly of Montana, and "Red"
Gunnells, with three companions,
passed through the Canyon this
week bound for the Hudson's
Hope country via Giscombe Portage. Capt. Brown states that
the only mistake so far on their
venture was their purchasing
supplies and outfit in Edmonton
instead of Fort George. It took
fourteen days to get their stuff
from Edmonton to end of steel,
and rates and delay, together
with the risks on the river, more
than kicked a hole in anything
they might have saved by making purchases there instead of at
Fort George.
J. B. Lambert, the Fort George
merchant, passed through the
Canyon Sunday night to purchase more stock for his two
stores. He states that the future looks rosy.

WELCOMEDRY WEATHER
Incessant Rains Softened Fills
Making Considerable Extra
Labor on Grade.
Though the appearance of fair
weather after the long-continued
rains is welcomed by every one,
there is doubtless no one to
whom it is more welcome or who
is more vitally interested than
the railroad contractors,
One unfamiliar with the ins
and outs of railroad construction
can  scarcely realize what   the
contractors have been up against
in their race  to complete the
grade without delaying the steel
during the unfavorable weather
conditions of the past few weeks.
Steam shovel outfits which under
favorable conditions would have
loaded 900 to 1000 cars per day
were loading 300 to 400  cars,
and in one or two cases were for
a time unable to operate at all,
The incessant rains so softened
the fills that it was a fight to
keep   the   dinkey tracks  from
sinking out of sight.    It  was
only by  keeping  a continuous
force lifting track and filling in
with poles, lumber and branches
that trains were able to move at
all.   Steam shovels  sank  deep
into the mud and had to be
jacked up and supporting material filled in under the track.
Breakdowns were numerous, due
to the wretched condition of the
tracks and the heavy loads upon
the engines.   Cuts slid in, covering up tracks and causing long
delays.   In spite of the heroic
efforts of the workmen, for days
the output of the shovels was
not one-fourth of their capacity.
The result has been an enormous loss, running as high as
$40,000 on a single shovel.   In
some cases the loss would have
been much less had they pulled
off their crews and let the machinery stand   until   favorable
weather but   the   contractors,
fearing   that   they  might   be
caught by the steel have forced
the work ahead at any cost,
The favorable weather of the
past two days has helped conditions on the grade considerably
and the shovels are going ahead
at a much faster rate.

The latest thing in municipal affairs
in Edmondon is a Civic Government
League, organized by representative
business men. The avowed purpose of
this new organization is to secure in
Edmonton five things : Abolition of the
city council, election of a commissioner,
right of recall, initiative and referendum. Candidates supporting this platform will be placed in the field at the
coming municipal elections.
Statistics purporting to show that the
human race is gradually becoming insane, and the prediction that the time
will come when there will be no more
births, were the features of an address
before the American Public Health Association by Dr. J. H. Kellogg, of Battle Creek, Mich. According to Dr.
Kellogg the birth rate is decreasing in
a manner that will bring it to the vanishing point in 2012. The achievements
of modern science, tho speaker declared, are bringing about race degeneracy by saving the weakliugs. "To
regain our lost estate," he declared,
"we should get back to nature. We
most cultivate health instead of disease."
J. L. Hunter, giving his address si
Fort George, B.C., reported to the
Seattle police that he had been robbed
of a pocket-book containing $125 in
cash, drafts for $1200, and a cashiers'
cheque for $1800. He accuses a colored woman of the theft. Hunter says
that he met the woman on Columbia
street between Third and Fifth avenues, and that she engaged him in conversation. They walked up Columbia
to a doorway somewhere between
Fourth and Fifth avenues and there
tarried a while. Not until he left her
did he discover his loss. The police
have a description of the dusky "dip"
and the night squad and detectives
lave been looking for her.
