EXPERIMENTAL FARM
TO BE ESTABLISHED IN THE DISTRICT
- MAN ON THE WAY TO SELECT
SITE   A WEEKLY MAIL
Department of Agriculture
Ottawa, Sept. 30.
D. H. Rattenbury,
President of the Fort George District
Liberal Association.
Dear Sir: Re the establishment of an
experimental farm in your district, I am
pleased to state that the matter has been
under consideration for some time by the
government. The question has progressed
so far that the department has selected a
representative to visit South Fort George
and proceed in the selection of a site for
an experimental farm. He will leave Ottawa by the time you receive this letter. *
Sydney Fisher,
Minister of Agriculture.
The above is good news. The establishment of
an experimental farm at some central point in the
vicinity of the geographical centre of the province will do more to place before intending settlers the merits of northern British Columbia, than
all the colonization companies' literature ever
printed. The position of the Nechaco, the Buckley, and the valleys to the west of these points,
were unknown to even the works department at
Victoria a few years ago. The government was
too poor to even survey the country. The consequence was that settlers could not get the desired
information, and being unwilling to meet the great
expense in visiting the district and doing exploratory work for the province, these rich valleys were
terra incognita to all but a few trappers and wiry
prospectors. With the anticipated construction of
the Grand Trunk Pacific railway there came an
army of land seekers not settlers- who took advantage of the magnanimous land act of our province, in which thousands upon thousands of pcrgs
of land were staked. This land has in no manner
being made to demonstrate its possibilities. Apart
from the irregular cultivation of soil around the
numerous Hudson's Bay posts which, by the way,
has amply proven the prolific nature of the soil,
nothing else is known. With the establishment of
a Dominion experimental farm in the upper reaches
of the Fraser, in the Nechaco valley, incalculable
good will be accomplished to the district in the
dissemination of accurate information to the outside world.
Another yard of good news the President of the
Liberal association received was the granting of a
weekly mail service for the winter. The extension of the government wire from Blackwater
Crossing to South Fort George will be taken up immediately and we hope the government will not
find it necessary to anchor its office in a corporation shamble in the woods-Central Fort George—
but bring it to South Fort George, on the Fraser
river, where the business for the district is done
and will continue to be done until it becomes part
of the Grand Trunk Pacific townsite, when the latter is placed on the market.
Every boat brings a piece of machinery for the
gradually perfecting Herald office, and by the time
the snow flies the cutest and most perfect abode in
which to turn out a great family journal, will be a
feat accomplished. This week we received a substitute for our gasoline engine a steam boiler and
engine. This may appear strange to the uninitiated. But this is explained in the statement
that it is easier by far to get whisky and beer way-
billed on the boats than it is gasolene, and as the
management have been brought up as Christians,
through a long chain of generations, without the
slightest inclination toward piracy and smuggling,
we don't feel inclined to even deceive the river
captains at this period of our existence, by having
gasolene labelled coaloil or any other liquid, lt is
cheaper to use wood and water than gasolene.
Hence the change. Next week we expect the
typesetting machine. Once this arrives the size
of the Herald will be enlarged to a 7-column paper.
The first outward mail winter schedule - will
leave here the first Monday in November the 6th
• and weekly thereafter. A. G. Hamilton has the
contract. The first few trips will be made with
packhorses. Last winter Soutl. Fort George had
a monthly mail, supplemented with a private one
paid for by the citizens.
i
A BANKING INCIDENT
Two men from "the other side" came into town
last "May. One was an Englishman, the other a
United Statian. The man from England was a
contractor located at Spokane. His friend came
from Minneapolis, and followed "promoting" as an
auxiliary to grafting western plums to eastern
pocketbooks. Both were dear friends of short acquaintance. One was the investor in the nude;the
other the promoter in the purple. One had cautious
money; the other a spendthrift's wallet. Both
landed at the foot of Hamilton avenue and made
their way ,to the newspaper office. "Where is the
bank located?" yelled the promoter. He was
informed. "Come on, Clark, I'll show you how a
bank is broken," he said to his friend. "Go easy,
old chap," ventured Clark. "You forget they are
British banks over here." "Tut, nothing in a
name," said the promoter, and they struck out in
a northwesterly direction. The overworked bank
officials were just striking their morning gait when
the two entered. The bank was crowded. They sat
down and rested on Georgian mission furniture, the
promoter making a mental inventory of the institution, while the stockily-built Clark puffed away
at a bull-dog. "Gentlemen, what can I do for you
this morning;" came a deep baso from the bank
manager. This brought the nervous wreck to his
feet. He stumbled on rising and Clark assisted
the bank-smasher to the foot of the throne. His
voice was weak, and appeared inaudible contrasted
with the manager's. "1 want a small cheque
cashed," said the promoter, elbowing Clark as if
to rivet his attention to the word small. The denomination of the cheque ran into six figures. There
was a stillness and a twinkle of delight in the
manager's eye as he scanned the paper, and that
stillness was only broken when the promoter was
asked, "How do you wish it? In 2's, 5's, 10's,
or of a "iii''1' r valuaatio .?" The promoter and
bank-sin,•.:-!:■ rtlire v up ' oth hands and fainted,
:< <i\ v:v only " ;vjv ' bv ,'h' ardent patting of his
friend with the exclamation "Be British and play
the game." "Mix'em, mix 'em well," was the
next order from frenzied finance. The blue-eyed
teller never ruffled a curl in the task, and as the
order was being filled, with the usual exchange of
compliments, a Brazilian parrot in the living rooms
of the bank was heard to sing: "Put on your slippers, you're in for the night; shake up the furnace
and turn down the light; they are coming pretty
soft for you!" The duo left. On the following
day a new account was opened at the bank. Clark
enjoyed the experience very much and never tires
relating the incident to bankers and other friends
in Spokane.
 *	
J. A. Coreyell, a provincial land surveyor and
mining engineer, of Grand Forks, with a party of
eleven men. arrived here from Grand Canyon by
canoe on Sunday last. Mr. Coreyell has been engaged on the survey of the available agricultural
land situated within the boundaries of the Fraser
river reserve, which extends from the Grand
Uanyon to Tete Jaune Cache for a mile and a half
on either side of the Fraser river. This reserve
contains some of the finest land in the district. Although the reserve is absolute, several squatters
have located on choice quarter sections in the hope
that the government will recognize their rights
when plans for the dispensation of the area have
been adopted by the lands department.

For eight months of the present year homestead
entries in western Canada numbered 30,916, as
compared with the 24,396 entries for the corresponding period of 1909. In each of the prairie
provinces there is an increase as compared with
the corresponding months of last year, Manitoba
having 2012 entries as against 1673 in 1909; Saskatchewan 20,692, as against 12,587, and Alberta
14,013, as against 9933.
The new shuffle in the provincial cabinet has resulted in Price Ellison taking the portfolio of minister of finance and agriculture. The new minister for the lands department is W. R. Ross, K. C,
of Fernie.
Six surveyors left Barkerville ten days ago for
Willow river, where they will be engaged on the
survey of the railroad line from Barkerville to the
Fraser river.
FIRST HOTEL IN NORTH
OPENS ITS DOORS TO THE TRAVELING
PUBLIC-IS A CREDIT TO SOUTH
FORT GEORGE   - -
In March and April of this year the Hamilton
land the Thapage pre-emption were, placed on the
market, after being subdivided into lots, as the registered townsite of South Fort George. Those
events may be chronicled in the history of the city
of future years as the commencement of her era.
The Bank of B.N.A. Inspector, with a corps of assistants, arrived here on April 13, and a branch
was immediately opened. Other business houses
and institutions followed. The sawmill sawed, the
banks banked, and people came to see the foundations of a city, the bright future of which had
been noised abroad by the voice of John Houston's
Tribune crying in the wilderness.
From the bush-covered river bench the present 8-
months'-old-city has arisen by the united efforts of
individual interests. The growth has been spasmodic and absurdly irregular, considering the primal requirements of the traveling public from such
a place as this, but nevertheless the progressive-
ness and optimism of the pioneers has accomplished
a splendid result in the period.
The accommodation of the public, on whose interest the future of a town depends, is usually the
first consideration in a pioneer city. Different here.
During the past eight months South Fort George
has thriven, absolutely devoid of any hostelry
where the travelers may obtain meals and a bed
under the same roof. No greater tribute could be
paid to this place than a recital of her growth under such deplorable circumstances.
Pleasant is the task of chronicling the passing of
the hotelless epoch into the oblivion of the past.
On Monday last, for the first time in history, the
doors of a modern hotel were thrown open for the
accommodation of the public of South Fort George.
Al. Johnson and Michael Burns, the proprietors of
the splendid Hotel Northern, are to be congratulated on their progressive initiative, as much as on
the excellence of their establishment.
The Hotel Northern is a 3-story frame building.
The first story is divided into a large lobby, dining-
room and bar-room, and there are forty large airy
bedrooms on the second and third floors. The lower
floor is being decorated in the Mission style, which
presents a most attractive appearance.
The addition of this hotel to the public conveniences of South Fort George adds most materially
to the prospects of the Hub City, as the problem of
accommodation has remained without solution to
the detriment of the place too long.
The license to sell intoxicating liquors has not
yet reached the proprietors, and the bar is at present out of action. 'Twill not be long, however,
before the beverages compounded by Joe Seagram,
Hiram Walker, John Dewar and other benefactors
of the human race, are being appreciated here.

Among the arrivals on the steamer Chilco Monday were Mrs. W. Tompkins and Mrs. J. Long,
both of whom are on their way to Giscombe Portage, where they will reside on their pre-emptions.
The former comes from McLeod, Alta., and the latter from Ashcroft, the home of the mealy potato.
Mr. Tompkins, who is at Giscombe, is so pleased
with his land, that he sent for his family, and also
located Mrs. Long on a quarter-section adjoining
his pre-emption. Both women expect to go up-
river Monday on the Chilco.
The death of Carl H. Dunlevy, at Vancouver, is
announced. Deceased was a native of Soda creek,
and a son of the pioneer who founded the famous
ranch at point, known widely as the Dunlevy.
The young man, with associates, had in contemplation this spring the erection of an hotel at the corner of Third and Hamilton, and was the first to advertise in the Tribune for a liquor license for South
Fort George.
The Mercantile Trust Co., Ltd., representative,
E. Reed, who has been stationed here all summer,
left Wednesday morning for Vancouver, by way of
Blackwater Crossing.    The company's horses will
winter near Quesnel.
 * ,	
Word was received here yesterday from Ottawa
to the effect that a license for the establishment of
a brewery at Quesnel had been granted.

to account by the Grand Trunk

retaining the title. The companies named in the application
are The Grand Trunk Lumber

Pete Landry, a member of the firm
of Gore & McGregor, the well-known
provincial land surveyors, waB in town
lust week. Mr. Landry comes from the
Willow river, from whence he journeyed
in the dark. Pete commends this stunt
to those who wish to suve time in the
hours when the sun shines. All that is
necessary for the success of such an
achievement is one candle, one empty
tomato can or X-rays. He has left again
for the scene of his activities.
1). H. Rattenhury left on the Chilco
Wednesday forKelowna, where he goes
to close up business matters, prior to
removing permanently to Fort George
next spring.
The eighteen pre-emptors at Giscombe Portage are petitioning for a
postoffice. The nearest postoflice is at
South Fort George, a distance of -11
miles.   They should have it.
The home of the phonograph, and a
landmark in South Fort George-Gore
and McGregor's old offices on Second
street—have' been moved to the rear
of the Mercantile-Gore & McGregor
block, on Third and Thapage. Contractor Bronger did the work expeditiously
and economically.
Two enlargements in the business
community on Second street, completed
this week, are Ewing's butcher shop
and F. Tiemeyer's bakery. The bakery
and eating room were inadequate to
accommodate ihe increasing volume of
trade done at this home-like place, the
consequence of which was the enlargement of both arms of the institution.
With such coffee, buns and the attention given, it is no idle statement to
prophesy that by next spring it will he
necessary to utilize the entire lot for
extensions.
Central Fort George has no barber
shop. They don't need one. The lambs
are all shorn in the Winch building,
Vancouver, before they come north.
The Chilco arrived from Quesnel
Monday night, with six passengers and
twenty-seven tons of freight. She left
for down-river on Wednesday. The
boat carried mail both ways. The nature of the freight was mostly foodstuffs, with no wetables worth making
a noise over.
William Forrest Cooke, the uncertified Liberal member for New Cariboo to
Ottawa, is in Vancouver. He will be
back when the Blackwater trail holds
out hardened inducements.
John Bronger has shipped all his hens
to the Mud river training quarters for
the winter. The birds are natives and
were hatched out in August. There is
money in poultry, and the industry will
be developed along scientific lines next
season.
Miss Brady left this afternoon for the
Chilaco Gardens—the Indian for Mud
river—to visit with her parents. The
South Fort George school principal will
be back Sunday evening.
A farewell dinner was given Saturday evening to the habitues and
friends of the two popular young
ladies who have conducted the South
Fort George restaurant—locally known
as the two B.'s— Blonde & Brunette—for
the past five months. The closing is due
to the Misses Pierce and Taylor having taken over the management of the
dining-room of the new Northern hotel,
which opened its doors Monday. Sixteen guests sat down to the prettily arranged table, which had its compass
points running east and west. After ample justice had been done to the
table, the toast, The Ladies, was attacked with such fervor by champions Kennedy and O'Flaherty, that
the impressions left on such hardened bachelors like P. Landry and J.
Monroe would lead one to the belief that
Women's Rights will be a live issue in
B.C. ut nodistantday. Songs followed
and only modulated when wires of regret were read from J. Williamson, of
the Hudson's Bay Post, and others
from Quesnel. The dreamy waltz and
the hilarious two-step, with He's A
Jolly Good Fellow, brought the evening to a close.
