Change of Venue In the
Daniell Case Refused
A motion to change the venue of a
case of criminal libel by the crown"
a-ainst J. B. Daniell, In the Fort
George Herald, about George J.
Hammond, president of the Natural
Resoirces company, was refused by
Mr. Justice Morrison, at Vancouver,
Bept. 19, and a motion for a commission to take evidence in Chicago
was Bimilarly refused. The case will
come up as ususj. at the next assises
at Clinton, October second.
8. S. Taylor, K. 0., appeared for
the crown and Stuart Henderson for
j. B. Daniell.
The caae concerns the publication
of an alleged libellous article in the
Herald about Mr. Hammond and
commenting upon the attack upon
him by the Winnipeg Saturday Post.
As Mr. Hammond is said to have
been at one time in Chicago, the defense have asked tor a commission to
take evidence there. ThiB commission had been granted, but owing to
delays it was found impossible to
take the evidence in time for the
trial of the case. An extension ot
time was asked but refused. The request for a change of venue from
Clinton to Vancouver was also refused.
THE RICH OMINECA
By mining men who have recently
returned from a, trip into tbe Omineca country, it is described as the
richest mining district in the world.
This fact is of great interest to this
section, as the avenue to the Omineca is from this point and Giscombe,
and the headquarters tor the development work in the Omineca muat, by
natural sequence of events, be at the
confluence of the Fraser and the Nechaco.
Percey H. Fraser, general manager
ot the Royal Standard Investment
Co., who, in company witb Mr. R.
Cornwall, Mr. W. Murray and Mr.
Bowen, three ot the principal stockholders of that concern, who hat
been on a visit to their extensive
mining property in the Omineca diltrict on Germanson creek, arrived recently on the coast trom that section. An exhaustive investigation
was made ot the mineral wealth ot
these holdings with the result that
Mr. Fraser and his associates were
more than pleased with the showing
that was made. Mr. Fraser statH
that he spent several hoars panning
and the result averaged tw:nty-live
cents to the pan. There is no question that the field in which these
properties are situated is on* of the
richest in the world. It is under*
■tood that the Killdare Mining Company of Quebec, whieh owns mining
property adjoining the Royal Standard Mines, has disposed ot its holdings for ,450,000. The whole Held' is
rich in gold, platinum and radium,
|'The Royal Standard Investment Co.
hoe Installed on its property a new
hydraulic plant which Is now in operation. Their properties cover an
ana of about twenty mi'es. The
Possibilities ot this property as a
money maker are such that that the
management has decided to raise, the
Price ol the stock on September 1
'rom ;i per share to t2. The present
"oc'ihoiders will have an opportunt-
'y until then of purchasing additional stock at the old price.
THE NEW EMPRESS HOTEL.
"The Empress," the new hotel
"•at has been under construction for
th« past three months' at the corner
°* Hamilton and Fourth streets, is
""•out to open its doors to the pub-
lle. and ere long the citizens Of the
district will be afforded an opportu-
|"ty to view ths best finished   and
-unshod and most compact house
ln Cariboo, if not the Interior ot the
*wuice. The complement. ot the
*** house embraces forty rooms, Including the various* sitting rooms,
*>"> suites and exceptionally large
J»w. Some of the latter are 14 by
.' whlle the   majority are I by' 10.
"M'lanof the   house is known as
« H design, three stories, transoms
*■>•* the   entire   first floor, and
I*   m« the south on Hamilton  ave-
'nue, with the dining room to the
1 right, the offices in the centre, and
the sitting rooms to the left of the
[entrance. The barrcom is at the
rear of the sitting room, on Fourth
street. The lumber used throughout
tbe structure has been the best obtainable, all well seasoned. The ceilings are hard dressed and all the interior wood work has been hand-polished,- which makes a pleasing contrast to the beaver-boarded walls ot
tbe hotel. With the exception ct ihe
dining room, which will be in green,
the remainder of ths bouse will be
oak-stained. The seating capacity of
the dining roo is forty people, ad
the offices and sitting rooms will be
resplendently fitted with thirty-five
'settees. The latest Moore lighting
'system will be instilled throughout
' the entire first floor — which will be
three 400 canhle power lights — oqe
! ln the dining room, one in the office
and sitting room. A number of .'50
candle power lights will also be in
use in the upper stories. The new
structure is well provided with' fire
escapes. The cost of construction ot
the Empress, inclusive of the fur-
n'shin^s, runs to the figure ot twenty-five thousand idollars, and Mes.rs.
Nicholls ft Warcup, the proprietors,
have shown commendable enterprise
in the work they have undertaken.
W. B. Dean, the contractor, leaves
fcr Calgary in a couple of wee>s'
time. *S»
FROM THE CLEARWATER
J. Fountain came down from the
Clearwater in canoe last Sunday and
left the day following tor the coast
by stage. He has been located at
Clearwater for the past tout months
superintending the surveying of his
timber limits in that neighborhood
and likewise acting in the capacity
of a private tire ranger. He says he
was fortunate in not having met
with greater lots by tire the past
summer. As it was he.lost between
forty and titty acre oft one limit
closest the river bank. Borne ot the
finest timber in this section is located at Clearwater, and* among the
holdings held by Mr. Fountain are
Included the choicest Und ot cedar
and fir, which- goes fully sixty per
cent cedar and ilr. Some forty sections are embraced ln the holdings.
Accompanying J. Fountain down
tbe river were W. McLean and Walter Laldlaw, who have been in
charge ot Surveyor Cray's work at
that point.
Speaking about the reported recovery of twenty-nine bodies at ths
Orand Canyon, Mr. Fountain places
no reliance ln tbe statement, - and
says that no such percentage have
met death at that point. Tbe police
do not know anything about the
matter. "While it is true tbat a
number of men have met watery
graves at the Canyon, the latter
place is the most unlikely spot tor
the recovery ot bodies, as the swift
current at that point would not allow of lodgement there, and If recovery were made lt would be below tbe
Canyon, on bars and other places,
where the water waa lesa swift. The
recovery ot twenty-nine bodies at the
Canyon, under'these circumstances,
would mean that some two hundred
men aad perished ln the Fraser this
year, anh no man who has lived on
tbe Fraser this summer would credit
this number having perished," said
Mr. Fountain.
"It is commonly reported that
steel will be at Mile 80, B. C, ln
December, where the Transcontinental crosses the Shuswap. At this
point a bridge Is under construction.
Men do not appear, to be plentiful ln
construction camps. Harvesting In
the Northwest has had the effect of
drawing a number from the railroad,
where the pay is slightly better."
DANCE HALL AT MILE 52
A dance hall is flourishing at Mile
52, B. C, fiver miles west ot Tete
Jaune Cache, wliere eighteen motley
girls night'.y swing to the inharmonious bows of two violins. Permission to locate at the Cache was denied by the railway contractors,
which, order compelled the promoters
to locate live milcs away from active railway work. The tinselled
dames" and promoters are reported to
be doing a thriving trade ln providing light entertainment for the myriads who congregate their nightly.
One man recently had his skull fractured during one of these entertainments and is reported to have died
from the consequences. There is no
liquor sold openly, but the bootlegger is in evidence at every corner
willing to rehabilitate weak hearts
at a dollar a dose. The charge tor a
dic.ee is twenty-five cents, which includes a bottle of pop, a bag ot peanuts or a dried out sandwich. "It
appears somewhat out of touch with
natura," ventured the narrator of
this Item, "to see a dance hall girl,
after a dance, go up to a counter
and call for a sandwich; but this is
what most of them do."
WRIGHT IS CAPTURED
A wire to Constable Grundy from
the 150—Mile House, Cariboo road,
received yesterday, states that Fred
Wright was taken Into custody at
that point Thursday night, and
would be sent back.
A dance will be given in the Burch
*/Clarke hall, Second street, on
Friday, October 4, with Kerr's orchestra ln attendance.  Tickets tl.
FRED WRIGHT.
-Wright Is charged with breaking
into a warehouse and stealing goods
at Mile 226, G. T. P. construction,
B. C, and also breaking jail on the
28th of August, at South Fort
George. \
THE DUKE OF SUTHERLAND IN
VICTORIA.
"Each succeeding visit to British
Columbia serves to confirm my first
Impressions of its vast natural resources and magnificent tuture, It
is I an exceptionally desirable field
both for immigration and for the exploitation of capital and like the
rest ot the Dominion is Very much
in the eyes of the people of the British Isles," said the Duke ot Sutherland in sn interview at Vancouver,
September (ive.
"I am showing my earnest talth
in this country by a desire to see
my second son, Lord' Alister, who
accompanies me, become a good Canadian and engage in farming on a
large scale. Much as I like Alberta,
I shall use my influence to induce
him to make bis home in British Columbia," added the duke with enthusiasm.
The ducal party, consisting of his
grace, the Duchess ot Sutherlnd,
their children, Lord Alister and Lady Rosemary, reached Vancouver by
C. P. R. on the fifth instant and
the following day proceeded to Victoria, where it is the Duke's intention to interview the government ln
respect to his colonization proposals.
The Duke of Sutherland is a large
stockholder in the North Coast Land
Co.. and among the hidings in
Northern B. 0., is included an extensive area at. White's Landing,
Fraser river, where a colony has
been established.
Railroad News and
Movements of Engineers
Low water is having its effect on
railway construction above the Can-
ion and many supplies will have to
be handled by sleigh this winter.'
Three hundred tons of cement are at
Goat River Rapids, awaiting shipment to Dome creek, the first ci ss-
ing ot the Fraser, where a bridge is
to be built. A good deal of this will
be moved between tbe two points, a
distance ot fifty-one miles) by scow,
but a large quantity will be handled
by sleighs.
South Fort George is the great objective of G. T. P. engineers and
contractors at the present time.
Chief Engineer B. B. Kelliher, accompanied by his secretary, Mr.
Speers, 0. F. Fetter, superintendent
for Foley, Welch & Stewart, witb
headquarters at 33, B. C, arrived in
town from up-river in the launch
Tete Jaune Sunday afternoon. The
chief is on a tour of inspection ot
the line, and it is related that imperative orders were* issued to contractor to push the work and have
the line finished on schedule    time.
It is also related in circle's knowing whereof they speak that steel
will be within forty miles of here
next August. This would be at the
mouth of the Bear river.    ~
Mr. Kelliher proceeds to Fraser
Lake from here and thence on to Hazelton. He was accompanied by Divisional Engineer Van Arsdell, who arrived from the south by stage Friday; A. G. Beaudette, M. B., and
Topographical Engineer P. T. Gill,
Mr. Gill will proceed as far as
Fraser lake and thence return here.
Mr. Beaudette, one of the party,
arrived from the south last Saturday and the day following proceeded
to Bear river, where large deposits
of coal are known to exist. He returned from the latter point yesterday.
Mr. Barrow, another G. T. P. engineer, who was in charge of a locating party in this section last season, is in town on his way to England.
CF. Fetter left tor Quesnel and
outside points by the launch Tete
Jaune last Monday morning.
Surprising as lt may seem, the
Grand Trunk Pacltic is just now entering upon one of the hardest parts
of their whole work, the 215 miles
trom Tete Jaune Cache to this point,
also surprising it is to learn that
this work is made tbe hardest not
because there Is heavy rock work,
but because there Is an abscence ot
rock. On the contrary, the whole
stretch is along sidehllls composed of
the slipperiest and muddiest mica
clay to be found anywhere. The engineers have now run into a constituent which defies all the laws
known to railroading science, and
which will keep the shovels working
for two years after the steel is actually laid.
Contractors Burns & Jordan, at
the mouth ot the Clearwater, Mile
136, have a tunnel contract that is
taxing human ingenuity, and in order to circumvent the deposit ot
slippery mica clay which exists there
have decided to install a large freezing plant, with which to freeze the
ground ln order that they may prosecute tbe work ot building the tunnel. The ground will be frozen, then
excavated, cribbed and walls of cement put ln, The tunnel is a quarter of a mile long and thirty teet
highland one ol tbe longest In this
section.
"Construction will be started at
once on the Pacific Great Eastern.
The survey of the route from Fort
George to Vancouver hat been completed, but the survey maps are not
all ready. I expect that the construction gangs will take to the bush
inside of a fortnight.
"We have three years in which to
complete the Uns, but I hope to see
lt done in two years. There are no
special engineering difficulties to be
overcome and the bridges and tunnels will not be ot any great length:
Returning   trom a  lour  months'
trip in Europe, Mr. J. W. Stewart,
president of the Pacific Great Eastern Railway, reached Vancouver on
the 19th instant, and was in a very
optimistic mood about the future of
the road.
"We intend to rush construction,"
he continued, "and will put a large
force of men at work. I cannot tell
at what point work will be started,
as I am not yet conversant with all
the plans and details. Weywill
award the contract for the first section right away.
"The road will open up a fine section of the province and serve an
Immense area now without railway
transportation."
FLOUR MILLS FOR PEACE RIVER
The Peace River Trading & Land
Co. are preparing to establsh two
flour nfllls in the Peace River country. A Blxty barrel mill will be es-
tablshed at cr near the Crossing,
and a thiry five barrel mill at
Grand Prairie. The machinery has
been purchased at Stratford, Ont.,
and will go forward from the railway terminus at Athabasca Landing
by sleighs during the winter. '
As to the wheat growing possibilities of the Peace River region, B.J.
Manzer, wto was in charge of .the
H. B. Co.'s mill at Vermilion on the
lower Peace River for six years,
says that during that time there
were three good crops and three
light crops of wheat.
CHANGE IN GAME RESERVE.
A new order in council changes tbe
boundary' reserves of the Game Reserve, established in- Carihpo two
years ago, to a point commencing at
a point at the junction of the Clearwater and the South Fork of the
Fraser Rivers; thence following the
summit of the range cn the west
side of the Clearwater river in a
northeily direction to the headwat-
erb of the Clearwater river; thence in
an easterly direction following the
summit of the range to the headwaters of the Little Smoky river; t'jerca
still lollowing the summit of the
range on the cast side of the Smoky
river, in a southerly direction to the
South " Fork of the Fraser river;
thence following the South Fork of
the Fraser river to the point ot
commencement. ■

A scow load of lime left Willow
river on Friday for South Fort
George, consigned to John Knox. It
was burned above tbe Big Salmon
river.

John Dorsey, a well known resident of: the Skeena, and a large land
staker during the palmy days of land
staking in the Bulkley and Telkwa,
was committed for trial before Magistrate Carss on the fifth instant, at
Prince Rupert, on the charge ot obtaining money under false pretenses,
through the issuing of a cheque payable to the Premier Hotel, Prince
Rupert.
;  SURVEYING WLTHIN ARCTIC
CIRCLE.
Sr. D. D. Cairnes, of tbe Dominion
Geological Survey, Ottawa, and a
party of nine men, including four
geological assistants, recently completed a geological examination ot
two and one-half miles on each side
of the Alaskan boundary line tor a
distance of 180 miles between the
Yukon and Porcupine rivers. The
boundary in the region referred to
follows the 141st meridian.
One of Dr. Cairnes' assistants, F.
J. Barlow, a student .ot a Toronto
university, had an exciting adventure. He was returning to camp one
evening at dusk when he was pur-
sued by a pack of wolves, which had
scented a deer shot by one of the
men the day before. The wolves attacked Barlow and although unarmed except for a stout stick he managed to beat them off until his cries
brought speedy aid from the camp.

The report industriously circulated
on the coast that twen'.y-nine bodies
had been recovered at the Grand
Canyon is without the slightest
foundation in tact and is another in-
tance cf tbe misleading news that
filters to the outside world through
avenues cf an unreliable F.ource, not
only in regard to fatalities cn th:
Fraser river, hut most everything in
general and lots in particular. In
the past a well organied band of
lot exploiters have turned every hai.
in their pa'.eB to devise means
whereby tbey could ma nify the
country's possibilities into lures and
traps for the unwary investor. They
have unrelentingly striven to draw
the picture in its most roseate hue,
regardless of consequences for the future welfare of the district. The
above unfounded report is but a reflex of what lot peduUrs teud out

The South Fort George po3to!fice
has (ilty boxes In v.se and the demand for more is bo great that it is
under contemplation to install fifty
more.
Word received yesterday Irom Willow City, at the Junction ol the Fraser and Willow rivers, brings intor-
ir.at.ou that the clearing gangs ol
the Grand Trunk Pacilic railway are
camped at that point and great activity is being experienced in that
section.
The letter and mail stage arrived
at six o'clock Tuesday evening and
left again lor the south Thursday
morning. The inward passengers included J. Morris, R. Ktitty, W. Dol-
lenmeyer and son. The outward list
included all the witnesses ln the
Seeley case, bound tor Clinton, and
Mr. Lloyd-Jones.
Several hundred car loads ot steel
rails have just arrived in the Biggar district ol Saskatchewan tor use
by Grand Trunk Pacific construction
parties in the completion of the
Biggar-Calgary branch, whilch officials of the company predict is destined in a few months' time to become one of the moBt important in
that section of the west,
Another decapitation is repo.ted
from the village up the local Nile.
This time it is a figure in the front
newspaper row with a Gordon kilt
that, has got the now dull Hammond
axe. If we remember right the newspaper man was given the freedom of
the village and presented with a pair
of tin keys on his arrival Irom the
coast the early part part ol the
summer. Wonder whether Hammond
will recall the "tin" he gave. The
decapitated should ma'.e a willing
worker in the chorus ballet, the music of which runs "Ham's Inhumanity," etcetera, etcetera.
It is reported by the B. X. management that the boat by that name
will be here during the week.
C. Lund left on Thursday for headquarters at Mile 186, tor the purpose
cf bringing Mrs. Lund to South Fo t
George, where her home will be for
the winter.
The steamer Chilcotin is expected
here. Wedn.sday, after having spent
two days on the ways at Quesnel undergoing repairs lor punctures to her
bottom ont her last trip down.
Ed. Seebach, the pioneer merchant
of Giscomb, who has been confined
to the Quesnel hospital with a bad
case of blood poisoning, tbe result
of an ulcerated tooth, is reported to
be much improved.
Willow City
On the main line of the
Grand Trunk Pacific Railway
and the terminal of a branch of
the Pacific and Hudson Bay Railway
At the junction of the Fraser and Willow Rivers, is the very heart of thousands of acres of the
most fertile and productive land in the world-the

wonderful Peace River Country, ths cpu'ent Salmon,
Crooked and Willow River valleys and the rich
Cariboo mining district,'
With the assurance that the Grand Trunk
Pacific Railway will be completed into WILLOW
CITY before the close of next year; with the
Pacific and Hudson Bay Railway having reserved
large trackage and depot sites in WILLOW CITY;
and with the Cariboo, Barkerville and Willow
River and eight other railroads projected into
Central Bricish Columbia is sufficient for the most
careful investor.
WRITE TODAY for maps, plats and printed
■ matter about WILLOW CITY where early investors,
just as they did at Fort George, will reap the
profits certain to be made on lots bought now.
