••ounces that his company wl.i present a splendid hockey cup to the
clubs here for the winn ng

This announce-
great deal towards
arousing a greater enthusiasm In the
hockey games during the winter than
hus existed heretofore. Thecup, Mr.
Cooke, informs us, will be held under
the Stanley Cup
has ordered the cup from Messrs.
Henry Birks &. Sons, which, he says,
will be suitably engraved, and representative of the hockey game, and
although "Bill" Cooke was, as usual,
Bou-roe, the engineer in charge, was
formerly with the G. T. p. on location work and has had large experience of mountain conditions.
The tug "Nanoose" and transfer
barge has unloaded 500 tons of
bridge material for mile 176 of the
G. T. P. at Prince Rupert. Twjve

Last winter a rink was built here {for Increased wages or changed conditions. They appear to be without
organization, and a lot of grafting
is going on amongst the organizers;
and considerable hockey was played,
hut no team matches were arranged.
It is Mr. Cooke's idea to establi h
interest in the great Canadian winter
game, and so supply a keen attraction throughout the winter.
The site of the present rink Is between thc Northern and Empress
Hotels on Hamilton Avenue, where
a standard rink was laid out last
winter. Season tickets were sold to
thti rink, and the enterprise was
fairly successful.
Mr. W. F. Cooke is an enthusiastic
supporter of sport and athletics, a*
is Mr. Russel Peden, his partner, and
both gentlemen have always been
prominently identified w.th move-.
ments for the advancement of these
commendable objects.
CAR THE SECOND
Representative W. R. Smith of the
Havana Cigar Company,  of London
Ontario, arrived!  here this week to
spread the fame of the Old Abe and
other cigars he sells over the face of
the Northland. Mr. 8mlth arrived in
state. He charged up the steep grade
leading from the Steamer B. X. In
a dinky  little Hupmoblle, which Is
ornate with legends setting forth to
all and sundry   the never-to-be forgotten names of the Havana Cigar
Company's smokes. W. R. Smith is
a genial person, and will long be remembered here as the leading character in a certain humorous incident
that will ever go down to posterity,
a» the greatest practical joke   ever
invented by vivid Imaginations. This
*as the occasion    ot his first visit
to this place when he was prevailed
upon to ^ass himself oft as a bank
manager who   was here   to open a
branch,   which deception*  he carried
out with great success. A person of
cosmopolitan ideas,  is   Mr.  Smith,
and many were the people who enjoyed joyous little rides in his car
whiIe he    was here. Mr.  Smith Informs us that he will visit this place
twice every year in the future. He

which is angering the men, Those of
the strikers1 who cannot pay their
fare's on the trains have to walk out
over the track. The latest reports
state that many of tbe strikers are
returning to work, and that the
strike is practically broken.
A statement was made by the I. W.
W. men to the effect that the strike
would proceed on the contracts now
being worked on the Fraser river
above here, but this is apparently
without foundation as no difficulties
have been reported between here and
the eastern end of st el. The Herald
referred to this strike in conversation with Pat. Welch, of Foley
Welch & Stewart, when he was here
recently with B. B. Kelliher, chiel
engineer of the G. T. P., and news
had just reached here by wire that
the strike was called. Mr. Welch
stated that there would be no serious trouble, and he scored the wo:k
of the trouble organizers amongst
the men who make a business of
strike promoting, and profit themselves out of the funds they collect
from the strikers.

A PLEABANT SURPRISE
J. M. Wiley, who was spending a
quiet summer away from the uproar
of the Winnipeg wheat pit, on his
beautiful Willow River farm; the
pride of our agricultural district,
rushed through town a few days ago
bound for Winnipeg—he was in a
hurry. J. M. got home alright, arriving early in the morning. He was
not surprised,* owing to the early
hour, at finding that Mrs. Wiley had
not risen, and went to his wife's
room to express his joy at the homecoming. They talked, 'tis said, for
some time, when to her husband's
unbounded joy, his wife drew down
the covers and exposed to view a
beautiful little son and heir, born
only three days before, of which momentous event he had been kept in
ignorance in order that the surprise
might await him. J. M. Wiley is a
very happy man, for both mother and
child are wonderfully well and
strong, but it Is unlikely that we
shall see him again this fall as had
been anticipated.
THE FERTILE MUD VALLEY
Mr. Charles Brown; accompanied
by Mr. Harry Seaman, left early In
the week for a visit to the Closa &
Brown ranch on Mud river, where
a crew of nine men are busy for the
partners clearing land and getting lt
under cultivation. Mr. Brown recounts glowing .reports of the Mud
river valley, and particulary of his
fine ranch. By next year, he states,
there will be fifty acres under cultivation, most of which land was in
its virgin state at the beginning of
the present year. Mr. Brown has a
team ot big draught horses at work
clearing the -.and. The clearing is
light, and the horses are able to pull
most of the light poplar and willow
up by the roots. All through the
Mud river valley, says Mr. Brown,
the crops are looking excellent. On
the Brady place, a pre-emption
bought this spring by a syndicate of
young mcii,' the showing is excellent
on what toil is under cultivation.
Mr. Brown, with his partner Mr. H.
B, Close, spends his week ends on'
the ranch, which Is delightfully situated, and he informs us that next
year he will build a bungalow on the
property and will develop It with
every possible means.
close to town up the Fraser, continues to clear right-of-way, but we understand that he will move his force
above the cinyon during the winter,
as his seventy ton shovel is also held
up on the upper Fraser. Contractor
Kullander, at work in the Eagle
Lake cut-ofl, has< no ateam-Bhovel
work. He will keep a large force at
work throughout the winter on rock
work and grading.
The divisional engineer returned up
river after spending a few dayB here.
YET ANOTHER TOWNSITE.
F. W. Crawford,' of Winnipeg, a
representative of the Transcontinental townsite .Company, arrived here
on the last boat in connection with
the floating of another large town-
site at the ' mouth of the Willow
River. Green Brothers & Burden are
now sub-dividing this land. The site
is twenty five miles above here on
the Fraser river, at the mouth of the
Willow. Mr. Crawford will reman
here (or some weeks completing the
details of the new townsite's creation.
TRAVELLING MEN
A number of travellers for the big
wholesale houses that supply the
ever growing trade of the Fort
George country paid their semi annual visit to the town this week.
Amongst them we noticed! Tommy
.Hall, R. P. Rithet's representative;
J. Richardson, of the Ames-Holden
Shoe Company; Bert Carmen of McKay Smith, Blair & Co., accompanied by Mr. McKay Smith's son, and
Captain Moffat, of the Enderby
Flour Mills.
O.T.P. OFFICIALS COMING
According to' a press despatch
dated Vancouver, August the 2nd., a
tour of inspection is to be undertaken about the middle of the month
by Chairman Smithers, President
Chamberlin, General Manager Donaldson and other directors and officials of the G. T. P., who will proceed overland by boat and rail from
Edmonton to Prince Rupert. At Tete
Jaune Cache the party will sail down
the south fork of the Fraser to Fort
George, thence journeying west by
canoe and pack train to railhead at
Skeena Crossing, near Hazelton.
The trip is expected to. occupy three
weeks. Later the visitors will visit
Vancouver and Victoria before returning east.
The people of this section look
forward with pleasure to welcoming
the President! of the Grand Trunk
Pacific Railway Company, and the
other prominent officials, to Old
Fort George.
DANCE POSTPONED
The Firemen's Ball, advertised to
be held in the Fort George
Theatre last night, was postponed at
the last minute until next Friday
at the same hour arid place. Cause
for the postponement was on account
of the wet weather which prevailed,
and as no dancers had appeared at a
late hour the theatre was closed.
Regret Is expressed that the parties
came over from the Nechaco town to
find the theatre In darkness.
BUSINESS CHANGES HANDS.
J. R. Campbell, onejjf the partners of the Fort George Drug Company, the plonesr druggist of this
section, sold out his interest in the
business this week to J. R. Williamson, late of the firm of Hamilton
and Williamson, of Stuart Lake.
The business will continue to run
under its original name, the principals now being Wliliatrstn and
Ferguson. Mr. Campbell will continue to manage the business until the
new proprietors are able to get a
registered druggist from the coast.
Mr. Campbell will leave for the
south ln a few weeks on a visit to
DIVISIONAL ENGINEER HERE
Divisional Engineer F. J. George,
of the G. T. P., arrived here this
week from up river on an Inspection
trip. Mr. George took Engineer Hea-
man's place as divisional engine2r
some time ago. Work on this division, according to the engineer, is
advancing rapidly. There is no doubt
at all, he says, that freight will te
shipped down river for commercial
houses next year. The idea of the
engineers is to concentrate the contracting forces on the work above
the Grand Canyon unt'l next spring,
when the rivers will have been rendered more easily navigable, and the
steam shovels can te brought down
on to the1 work. Contractor Lund,
who Intended to work shovels below
the canyon this winter, has leased
his machines until the s;.ring, as it
impossible      to      gtt   this    class
FOREST PROTECTION
H. C. Kinghorn, of the British
Columbia Forestry Department, arrived here on the last boat accompanied by his assistant, Mr. Wynne
Heath. Mr. Kinghorn leaves immediately for the upper Fraser River,
where he will cruise government
timber and issue permits for the cutting ot tie timber to the contractors.
The Forestry Department are busy
all over the province enforcing such
regulations as have been brought in
for the prevention ot timber destruction, and for the,conservation of
the timber resources of the province
in every possible manner.
It Is possible that Mr. Kinghorn
will remain in this section all the
remainder of the year,
Mr. Heath, who accompanies Mr.
Kinghorn, was here several years ago
with one of the first G. T. P. survey
parties under Engineer Rolson. When
he was here last Fort George consisted of the Hudson's Bay Post, the
Indian settlement, and A. G. Hamilton's old log store.

SURVEY OF RESERVE
The exhaustive topographical survey of the Indian Reserve here is advancing rapidly under Engineer GUI
and his surveyors. Mr. Gill's party
is camped on the north-west corner
of the Indian reserve in several large
tents. Thero are thirty men engaged
in the work of surveying. The Indian
Reserve Ib declared by all who visit
it, to be one of the most beautiful
natural townsites possible to imagine. The whole of the land is fit for
townsite purposes, notwithstanding
the bogey raised by some irresponsible subdivision fiends who used to
circulate the report that much of the
reserve was useless land. The best
property on the reserve for town-
site purposes is undoubtedly that
portion of it situated along the level
bench which extends back from the
Fraser River waterfront. This bench
is beautifully located, and from it
rises a small hill commanding a
magnificient view, which forms the
most Ideal location for the big hotel
which the railway corny any are
going to build. It is reported tbat
Architect Rattenbury, the man who
designed the EmpresB Hotel In Victoria, and the Provincial parliament
buildings, has been commissioned by
the G. T. P. to design a magnificent
hotel for their townsite here.
his drug business at Princeton. He of plant down the river under pres-
wlll continue to   be Identified with ent conditions. His plant is now at
South Fort George Interests, and he work on the upper end. Contractor
will remain a resident of this place. Sam McGoffln, who has a contract
suggests that when the time comes
for us to take up the serious question of lighting the town electrically,
it should be Insisted that the wiring
systems be carried through the city
in the alleyways at the back of the
lots, and not laid under the streets
or sidewalks, which, he says, necessitates the constant tearing up of
these for work on the wires. The
Calgary man also begs that we will
have wide sidewalks here, as, In Calgary, he says, walking is difficult on
Saturday night. He tells us that
owing to the streets being so narrow automobiles can be lett standing
on the main street only twenty minutes. We have' no trouble with automobiles lolling at the curb In tbis
city, but the other pointers are
worthy of the consideration of the
future city fathers.
The steamer "B. X." brought up
amongst its passengers this week, a
bridal couple who are spending their
honeymoon in South Fort George.
The happy couple are Mr, and Mrs.
Joseph Grenier. Joe Is a stage
driver for the B. C. Express Company, and a man who drove one of
the first stages into town. He will
assist the veteran Al. Young to
maintain tbe semi-weekly service
which will be established tbis winter.
EXPLORING THE PEACE
J. A. Harvey, a provincial land
surveyor,, of Victoria, B, C, arrived
here today after an extended exploratory trip to the Pea.e River
country and its tributary areas, tor
the provincial government.
Mr. Harvey journeyed far into the
practically unknown land near the
headwaters of the Findlay river. He
took some 150 photographs on the
tri-p, and compiled a mass ot data
which will permit the government to
issue a great deal of Interesting Information about the little known
country lying north of latitude 56.
When the railroads open up the
Peace river valley the province of
British Columbia may be considered
to have entered an era of real development. The Peace country, and
the vast unexplored territory to the
north of It, probably contains more
virgin territory, latent "with mineral
timber and agricultural possibilities,
than the most optimistic may now
venture to prophesy, In the opinion
of The Herald it will not be many
years hence before another great
gold strike will be made in some of
the slumbering valleys by the Findlay or Llard rivers. There are undoubtedly unnamed creeks and-even
rivers in the wilderness of the northern hinterlands the wealth ot which
will some day awaken the restless
hordes to the south, to the fact that
back up there lie riches beyond the
dreams of avarice.
BASEBALL.
Owing to the death of a resident of
the Nechaco town last Sunday, the
baseball game was cancelled on that
date. The next game Is called for
tomorrow afternoon at' 2.30 on the
South Fort George diamond.
Bill Fox, for years past in charge
of one of the Hudson Bay Company's
most remote fur-trade__ posts, Fort
Grahame, has retired from the service, and will start a trading post ot
his own near the mouth of the Findlay river. Mr. Fox is now staying at
Fort St James, Stuart Lake. He is
to be married shoitly, and will then
return to the big Findlay river,
which, flowing from the north meets
the Parsnip from the south and
forms the mighty Peace' near the
intersection of latitude 56 and long-
titude 124.
The death occurred last Sunday, of
Mrs. Jacobs, a resident of the Nechaco townsite. Mrs. Jacobs is survived by her husband and infant,
whom, with the community at large,
mourn her loss. Deceased was interred in a plot of ground on t! e
government reserve,

order that the'.r criminal operations
I in the trail of the railroad builders

' period.
J. B. DANIELL. Editor.
The murder of the gamller, Herbert Rosenthal, on the steps of one of
New York's uptown hotels, adds to
the criminal a na s of Amrici's
greatest city another sordid and terrible crime; possille only under a
lax and defective Bystcm of municipal government the reins of which
are held in a palsied hand.
The horror of tbe crime itself
pales into insignificance as investigation and irrefutable evidence
brings home the guilt to the very
portal of the gnat city's police headquarters, and tbe moti e stan 1
out glaringly as the executed commands of a police officer who sentenced to death a man who threatened
to "squeal" on a powerful criminal
organization within the police force.
For the sake of an ever vaunted
advancing civilization It is to be
hoped tbat the asiassins and their
employers in the police force will
suffer the extreme penalty of the law.
When a newspaper writer resorts
always to innuendo in attacking a
journalistic foe, he is either a coward, or a mangy, rotten cur — or
both. Yet, in the mortifying brain
of a poor servile youth who fulfills
the duties he owes to a crooked promoter as a writer of advertising
matter for the crooked promoter's
crooked schemes, the idea has takin
root that by innuendo he may safely
gibe and gibber, and bear false witness against a man whose fearless attitude in journalism galls his pi:ny,
shrivelled mind. And the clever promoter, getting more careless aa the
years pass him by, and be continues
to elude the law, pats his pcor dupe
on the shoulder and commends h's
weak endeavors. When the promo'er
picked up his ad-wrltcr, however, he
was covered with judgments for debt
and his whereabouts were sought by
impatient creditors—so perhaps he is
grateful, and tries to do his best.
This promoter sustains an almost
dual personality, for while he suavely presents churches with brass bric-
a-brac for their decoration his men
lavishly spend money in entertaining
those from whom they ssek favors
tor his cause, on wine and painted
women, bribery and corruption.
Tbe Quesnel Board of Tr..d3 is
petitioning for a weekly mail service to Fraser Lake. T.'is is a commendable move and should have the

The closing down of the Quesnel
Hydraulic Gold Mining Company's
property on Swift river, owing to
gold-bearing gravel having given o.it,
will deal a hard blow to large alluvial gold-mining operations in British
Columbia. This Is the second Instance in the last few years of a
Urge failure in hydraulic mining operations in this district, the former
being the cessation of operations in
the famous Hobson mine at Bullion,
which was closed by the Guggenheims
shortly after they purchased .it. Philadelphia capitalists, led by no less a
person than Howard W. DuBois, have
invested nearly a million dollars in
bringing water to thoir pioperty,
and after a short n.n the values in
the low grade gravel have entirely
disappeared. The run of gold in this
country proves continually to te an
extraordinary thing. Values have been
found on mountain tops that were
deposited there by the action of the
waters at the beginning of th ngs,
and ln the famous old gold channels
at Barkerville the richest pay-dirt
the world has ever known was
brought to light when the rest of
the province was still a roeirlng wild-
ernese. It is to te hoped that the
prospectors of the m n ng concern
will discover other paying ground in
which their plant can operate.
It is good to note that the Attjr- !
ney-General has despatched a Stipendiary Magistrate to' Tete Jaune
Cache, and that a suitable jail will
be built there. Thc upper river is the
•cene of operations for bootleggers
and scalpers, whose stock in trade is

with which they buy perfectly good
time checks from the laborers al >ng

According to an article in the Cariboo Observer, published at Quesnel,
the great hydraulic plant of tbe
Quesnel Hydraulic Gold Mining Company was closed down late latt
month, and the crew laid off. The
reason given for the closing down of
the property, by the acting manager,
was that the pay-dirt has petered
out, and unless more gold-be iring
gravel could be located the plant
would not operate again. The company is prospecting the adjac.nt
territory.
Nearly a million dollars has been
spent by the company In installing
this plant, and un'ess pay-dirt can
again be located the great expenditure will be almost a total loss, as
the clean-up, whilst the plant was
in operation amounted to a mere
bagatelle.
William Brash, better known as
"Cariboo BUI," pioneer stage driver
and prospector, one of the principal
characters in the early days of British Columbia, was claimed by death
at the Colonial hotel ln New Westminister laBt week. In the early days
he drove stage between the towns of
Yale and Lytton, when the former
place was the head of navigation on
tbe Fraser river, and before the C.
P. R., with its steam horses, entered the field, replacing the mode of
travel of which BUI waB the active
head. This pioneor stage driver was
well known in every civilized se.tion
of British Columbia, and many an
exciting account ot his adventures
and varied experiences have been
told and retold.
After the railroad took over the
transportation problem, Bill started
for the Cariboo country. While there
he made a lucky strike, returned to
Vancouver) and started the Boulder
Hotel, which is sti'l In existence,
although burned down twice while In
his bands. After the second fire Bill
became discouraged and disposed of
his property in Vancouver, going to
California. In California he again
took up prospecting and made another stake. Many are the stories
told by Bill, who after sufhrns
gregt hardships ln rugged parts of
California and other places he pros
peeled, would come to town with
sevtri.1 thois nd dollars in bis
pocket, and in one ntsht would Bpend
the entire amount. For this reason
he was never able to a-rass any
great amount of riches. About fifteen
years ago he again returned to Brit-
iBh Columbia, and after visiting various sect'ons of the province, meeting
old friends and making new ones, he
settled down for a quiet life at the
Colonial hotel, where, after twelve
years constant rm'ilrnw, death overtook him.

Red Deer, Alta.
Editor, Herald:
I have a lot in Fort George
Centre, a sub-division soutli of the
South Fort George townsite. Will
vou give me an idea of the value of
the property, according to your own
views. Is the property being developed at all? From all reports you
have a live city up there, and I am
of the impression that when the G.
T. P. people get busy and float their
Indian Reserve lands as a townsite,
that there will be a great interest in
the place. J. H.
Fort George Centre lots may Borne
day be good residential property. At
present there is no development on
the land whatsoever, and we do not
think there will ever be any if this
is left to the promoters. We would
not recommend the property as an
investment, but may remark that
we eipect to see the line of the Pacific and Great Eastern pass through,
or near, the   townsite,   which will
kelp things a little.
........
Editor, Herald:
What is the best buying at
Praser Lake today? There should be
a good town somewhere about there,
hut there is a    good deal of argument going on at present about the
relative values of Fort Fraser and
Fraser Lake, tbe two towns at present there. From all accounts Fraser
Lake has the best of lt, but, being
in tbe field for a small investment,
I would like   some battel*   information than that now available.
L. G. H.
We have   expressed   some pointed
opinion regarding the properties you
teler to already, and send you the
issues carrying our comment. Since
these were printed, however, a few
things have transpired which add to
the story a little. The government
are now erecting their offices on the
townsite of Fort Fraser, owned by
the Dominion Stock and Bond Corporation, o( Vancouver, a company of
which Hon.   Price Ellison, Minister
of Finance for B. 0., is president.
However, neither the fact that the
government buildings are   going up
•here, or that the finance minister is
the figurehead of the   company can
h< said  to    materially       increase
<••« value o( the property. The ad-
"ftisements which this outfit have
bw*i   publishing   lately   are vastly
misleading. The practical extent of
the development on the Fort Fraser
'ownslte a couple of weeks ago con-
•ieted in one    street slashed,    not
graded,   one    insignificant   general
store,
a saw-mill that does not do
""•ch   wurk,  and    the   government
imilJ- . ...
huildings in process of construction.
"fraser Lake" ts a property in
*hich the G. T. P. have accepted an
'otereats from its promoters, McMil-
■»« & Vollans, of Winnipeg. It is
»°t a divisional point, but the G. T.
p* will certainly build a station on
ll' whilst they have made it clear
™»t they do not intend to unless
tb,y ««■ help it at Fort Fraser. The
McMlllm, & vollans townsite, Is, at
M» r-*te, being decently floated. In
°uf opinion the G. T. P. will before
an extensive townsite of
H put on
Jhe'r own in the Fraser Lake sect-

that Mr. W. A. Jowctt o( Nel.-.oii,
who hus ho n appoin.ed stipendiary

a conference with the attorney-general prior to starting tor his ntw
tl-.lt) of duty. He will reman at the

George S. Hill, a merchant of Port
Saskatchewan, Alberta, ariiveU he e !
this week and Is looking o er the ;
situation with a view to investing
in town property. Mr. Hill has long
intended to visit this section, and
he started to tonic in from Edmonton via the new steel to Tete Jaune
Cache, hut on reaching thc 'Cache he
found that the river route wbb not
to be relied upon by those who intend to reach thiB pace. He circled
round on the ra 1 roads and came up
the old Cariboo rjad from Ashcroft.
Mr. Hill does not 1 egret his ti ip to
Tete Jaune Cache, as, be says, it
has given him some idea when the
steel will reach here, and of the conditions existing along the line ot
construction. Mr. Hill, after looking
over the townsite situation, satisfi d
himself that South Port G org;
business property was the on'.y practicable locatlcn for business houses
now, and he intends to Invest here.
It is Mr. Hill's intention to return
here at some time in the near future
and open a branch of his furniture
business.
Our sidewalks are not broad enough: No sir, they are not, and they

ofien thought so without mooting tie

noticed a man who wns experiencing
great difficulty in connni g his
pedestrain stunt to the straight and
narrow way that borders one of our
streets. We met the man face to f.ice
at ,a point where the board walk appeared to him to be many hundre's
of feet up In the ai*\ for the terror
of the situation made bim dizzy.
He raised his hand with an imploring
gesture; "Stop," he said. "Hower
we gointer doit" was his next comment, after a lapse of time whilst he
silently gazed into the a' y;s on his
left. "Tel'yer shwat," he next suggested, "I'I law down'un you jump

A MAN OP AFFAIRS,
The Vancouver World bas been running a pictorial feature for some
weeks past, on its financial page, under the caption, "Our Men of Affairs". We have been mildly surprised, considering the many really
big, men Vancouver may boast of, at
the representation of men, or affairs,
that have been featured with such
prominence to date ln this gallery of
the World's, but of course—there's a
reason. The limit was reached, however, on July 29th., when there appeared a wondrous production intended to represent one George J.
Hammond, president cf the Natural
Resources Security Company Ltd.
George must have come through to
the artist to make him just like he
is—not. The picture haa him well
down front, standing in a charming
don't-glve-a-damn att.tilde right on
the Indian Kts:rvc, point n^ with
one hand to his bunch of townsites
and carelessly fing. r'ng a bunch of
ribbons wliich are hitched to tiny
locomotives representing every imaginable railway which might ever hit
this place with the other—and in the
hunch a couple are labelled G. T. P!
THc idea of George John Hammond
with strings on the G. T. P. Is very,
very humorous, and c. uses in t3
emit one long soft ripple of girlish
laughter, and the idea of bim using
tho Iml'mi reserve as a boosting
ground for his prac'.ical jokes gives
us a pain. These commercial artists
do have fertile imaginations.
