II] ITU this issue thc Fort George Herald
f? shrinks from a seven column folio
paper .■_ the five column size of days gone
by. The reason fcr this retrocession in size
is clue to the exigencies of the time, the
place, nnd the fact that the Victoria government has cut off the principal revenue of
country newspapers by an oleventh hour re-
pe'itanc. for the shortcomings of their land
policy, which took the form of an orderin-
coun 11 reserving that portion of B. C. in
whieh the best lands had already been peddled off to the bogey-man speculator, much
dwelt upon by the feeble opposition to the
McBride government. And the order fi.rti,.r
sought to double the price of lands purchased prior to the short-order law, whicii
had no: received the acceptance of the Department of Lands, when that department
were r, iy where from one to two years behind in its work, but this retroactive feature was removed from the force of the
order. -_„
The government Land Act, prior to the
Council's April bomb-shell allowed staking
of government lands for purchase, by agent,
for a sum varying from $2,50 to $5 an acre,
according to tho classification of the livid,
as recorded by the surveyor who has to bo
employed by the applicant in the event of
tho government accepting the application.
This system is still in force, but the reserves cover all the districts where staking has
be.n principally tarried on, but to new en-
plications the raised price applies. The procedure also involved the advertising of a
not'ce embodying a description of the land,
in the British Columbia Gazette, and in a
newspaper published in the district administered by the government agent who handled the preliminaries of tho applications-to-
purchaso, which was where the striving
country editor came in, and The Herald,
situated in a district administered by a
government agency thnt records tho applications for more millions of acres tiian we
have time to compute, waxed fat, and prospered. The land advertising business, however, whilst remunerative to a degree, hns
been a detriment to country publishers in
so far as the high-pressure of effort demanded from the m._hanicr,l end of the weekly,
to produce the monotonous descriptions of
land, has had a demoralizing effect upon the
journalistic end of these publications, and
therefore, whilst deploring tl._ loss of our
principal source from which we hoped for
the acvimilntion of .wealth, we turn with
quivering fingers to the ball-pointed pen for
emoluments of public approbation, earned
in a consistant effort to protect their best
interests by fearless publicity.
Tho Herald in its present size will not be
over incumbered with masses of land advertising, and its columns will be devoted
to telling the truth about the land we live
in, and the propositions coming into being
This journal is owned by the Northern
Interior Printing Company Ltd. It is published to supply the necessities of existance
for its proprietor, for the Northern Interior
Printing Co Ltd., is one individual. The
Herald boasts of the best plant and most
complete equipment of any country newspaper i- North CentroJ'B. ('., and w* aim,

t PROPOS of the Victoria governmoni
" and its land policy, „f which m
have considerable knowledge, having noted
many instances of the ineonsislancy of its
modus operandi at clove quarters, it is amusing to rote that Premier McBride will
open negotiations at Ottawa for the re-ac
quisition of the 3.500,000 acre block of Jand
rond subsidy deal. The request for ths negotiation is backed by tlie statement that
il would be "good policy" for the province
to acquire this choice block, as the Dominion govornmont has made no provision
directed towards its set 1 lenient.
We would blush to recite the extent of lhe
developin'lit work carried on by the government of the province of British Columbia in the vast Peace Hiver u.lley. It does
not amount to very much more than the
placing of a reserve for 'ill miles on either
side of the river. This reserve was placed
after Hob Green, an ex-Minister of Lands—
who used to peddle suspend.!'., on the C. P.
IL—now slated for one of the new senators,
had acquires some choice lands in association with other fortunate ones. Outside of
this reserve the operators have stall d land
in blocks varying in size from one to fifteen
hundred square miles. Soum of th038 operations have been c: Tied on by the enterprising rnanipu.Utors cn a "shoestring."
Indeed, one firm, who advertise their intention to purchase sixteen hundred square
miles of land from the Crown, r,"e unable to
meet even thoir preliminary expenses incurred ic rrlvertislng. Because the Laurier government did not disturb the peac and serenity of the Dominion Peace river land in
British Columbia it docs not follow that
Mr. Borden's government may noi prove
more progressive in tho matter. The provincial government have surely enough care
and responsibility in the Peace Itiver Disti'ict, without increasing their obligation to
the public in a district so far barren of government development work altogether. \t
the present time there are two ways of
gaining access to the Peac Hiver valley.
One is by way of Edmonton, and vi.". tu
roads constructed by the Albertan government into the Potic Coupee prairie, the
other by a dangerous canoe route, which is1
ihe British Columbian portal to one of its
greatest undeveloped areas. It is now an
established fact that a railroad will be constructed to open up the Peace valley. Its
construction will be communed and carried
on principally ftom the Albertan side of the
provincial boundary. Surely it devolves
upon the people of this future city to take
some steps towards securing a proper means
of egress to ths groat valley lying to the
north of us. The government have now virtually got the Peace River district under
lock and key,
THE policy of tl u Government regarding the settlement of the old reserve, which stretches from the north fork
of the Fraser River to the provincial boundary in the Yellowhead pass, for a distance
of three miles cn cither side of the Fraser
River .-.nd its headwaters, has not yet been
announced. This res.rvc excludes even pre-
emptors from the soil. There ,","e many
squatters on the land a'ready, and petit"
ions nave been sent to Victoria requesting
a decision upon the policy of alienation.
The Herald beleives thai were the government to throw the ros.rve open for preemption in the spring, thai the valley
would be a thriving vista of agricultural
activity before the fall.
