South Win Their
First Game at Football
The South Fort George Football team won their first game in
the present series for the Montgomery shield on Sunday, Prince
George furnishing the opposition.
The game was fast throughout,
with South the aggressors all the
time. While pretty football was
evident at times, goals and not
applause were chief aims, the
result of the game meaning either life or deattl to !3outh, as a defeat on Sunday would have put
the local boys practically out of
the running. As it is all three
fclubs have one win and one defeat each, leaving the table in a
Leiy interesting state.
With one or two changes in
last Sunday's team we look to
fee South go through the rest of
[he competition without defeat.

.HIDE LEFT TO
JOIIH. S. ARMY
Mr. H. W. McBride once paymaster at Foleys Cache and well
known in town, has left the
G. T. P. service to rejoin the
U. S. Army. The following is
taken from the "Edmonton
Journal."
" H. W. McBride, an American
citizen, leaves the city to-morrow
for Chicago with the object of
assuming command of a company
of soldiers ready for service
against Mexico, Mr. McBride
has been employed for some time
past as inspector of bridge construction on the Grand Trunk
Pacific west of the city and on
hearing of the outbreak of the
war with Mexico he wired to tl e
States to see if he was wanted.
The reply came telling him to
come provided he could re; ch
Chicago within 10 days. Mr.
McBride at once packed up and
goes to assume bib old command.

DUKE OF AKUYLL DEAD
The announcement of the death
of the Duke of Argyll will be received with regret all over the
Dominion,
The Duke, who was son-in-law
of the late Queen Victoria, died
at East Cowes on Saturday night
at the age of sixty-nine.
Over on this side the Duke
was better known under the title
of the Marquis of Lome under
which name he acted as Govern< r
General of the Dominion of
Canada.
General Huerta reported utterance that he will never
resign is not taken seriously. He is said to be sencerely
desirous of bringing the whole controversy to an end.
The mediation envoys went into canference with
Secretary Bryan today. Socretary Bryan said that some
announcement would probably be made later. An Anti-
American movement is gaining strong hold in Germany,
the liberal and milita press severely criticising Wilson-
policy with regard to the Mexican question.
The German Government are greatly annoyed at this
extravigant outburst and have cautioned the offending
press that they must be more careful and reserved. The
warning does not appear to have much effect however as
the newspapers continue to look upon the Mexican im-
broglie from the Mexican point of view.
VERA CRUZ, May .9.-Word has reached here today that a cipher mersage sent by General Funston to the
state department at Washington has led to a secret war
meeting of the cabinet and as a result additonal troops
will be sent there. A despatch states that two large oil
wells at Tampica have been fired by the Rebels causing
considerable damage to life and property. The fall of the
Huerta regime is expected at any tima and it is greatly
feared a crisis has been reached at Mexico City, anarchy is
holding sway and it is believed that this state of affairs
has resulted in the present activity of the War Office.
The War Department have been severely criticised
for their action in withdrawing the Battleships from Tampica. In a statement from the Department of the War
Secretary states that this action was taken at the request
of the British Naval Captain who pointed out the grave
danger of a disturbance and that the presence of United
States Battleships were liable to bring about a massacre
of American and other foreign subjects. The British
command undertook and did transfer refugees from Tampico under the British flag.

a full programme of sport for

H. A. BLACKBURN'S BENEFIT
COURHESSION
The County Court of Caiiboo
opened on Tuesday with Judge
Calder presiding, lhe present
sitting is the largest on record,
over fourty cases will be dealt
with, no fewer I hun seven of
these being appeals from former
sentences handed down by magistrates.
Large crowds are attending
the sittings and the small court
house is packed to capacity daily.
The first case on Tuesday was
the appeal of a sentence of six
months on the charge of bootlegging by a man named Brady
from McBride, He was defended by Mr. Mclntyre of Kamloops, Mr. L. P. Eckstein prosecuting. Evidence for the crown
showed that Bradv was in possession of a quantity of liquor
but no direct evidence was
brought forward sufficient to
convict him of selling whisky
without a license. The appeal
was granted,
Another appeal from a sentence
for the same charge against a
woman named Grace Writrht,
also of McBride, was dealt with
at Wednesday's sitting. Two
constables from ...cBride gave
evidence to having bought whiskey in defendant's house. The
charge was denied by defendant's council, who admitted that
the constables did receive liquor
but that no money was paid for
same and that the men were under the influence of liquor at the
time. The judge found accused
guilty but withheld sentence,
A case of much local interest
was tried on Thursday, Wm.
Benning of South Fort George
appealing from sentence of six
months on a charge of selling
liquor without a license. Three
witnesses appeared for the
crown and gave evidence to show
that accused had the liquor in his
possession which he sold for
money or on the promise of
money, Mr, Montgomery, for
the crown, contended that while
no money had changed hands at
the time of transaction it was
understood between the parties
interested that the liquor would
be paid for at a future date.
No witnesses appeared for the
defendant, his council pleading
that the liquor was intended for
a gift and that the defendant expected no monetary consideration
whatever. The case was tried
by jury, a verdict of not guilty
being returned.
At yesterday's sitting an ex-
policeman named Thomas, who
was for some time on the local
staff, was tried on four different
charges, two on the charge of
issuing cheques under false pretences, one of theft and one of
breaking jail. The prisoner on
Wednesday morning elected to
be tried by jury, This case was
disposed of in very short time,
the accused being found guilty
on all charges. He was sentenced to three terms of three
years and one of two, making
eleven years in all.
Excellent Transportation
Service Offered By
New Organization
A   very   deserving benefit will be
given in the Fort George Theatre on
Monday night on behalf of Mr. A. H.
Blackburn, who ao unfortunately broke
his leg while coming down stairs from
his rooms in the Richis & Clarke building sometime ago and has since been
confined to the hospital.   A large number of local stars have agreed  to af- j
pear and the best variety entertain- ■
ment ever staged in this district is as- J
sured.   Tickets will bo 50c admiting to
any part of the house.   The shows will
be given at 7 & 9.   Persons wishing to
attend the first show are requested to '
get their seats early and avoid delay.
NEW ENTERPRISER
SOUTH FORT GEORGE
The first evidence that this
district is going to be the wholesale distributing point for the
whole of Central British Columbia will present itself within the
next few days.
The Northern Fruit Co. have
under construction at the corner
of Hamilton avenue and Fourth
street a large building where
they will establish a wholesale
warehouse. They wi h to announce that they will have a
large consignment of fresh fruit
and vegetables, butter and eggs
to meet the ever-increasing demands of the local trade and
surrounding district.
The Church of England Wrestling
Contest has been postponed till a further date.
The announcement is made by
the Fort George Trading and
Lumber Co. Ltd., that arrangements have been joncluded
whereby the steamers Hammond,
Operator and Conveyor, will accept commercial traffic and
further more that an advantageous arrangement has been
concluded whereby the Inland
Express Company Limited, the
Royal Mail & Express Carriers
into Cariboo, will connect with
these steamers, maintaining a
garage and auto, station at
Quesnell, thereby establishing an
immediate connection for down
river passengers at Quesnell and
eliminating the waits that in
previous years have been such an
objection to travellers.
Shippers and travellers will no
doubt, be pleased to learn of these
increased facilities for transportation. To those who know the
steamers Operator and Conveyor,
which are the most powerful
stern wheelers in Canada, it will
be a pleasure to learn that the
famous meals served on these
boats are now accessible to the
pu blic. The steamer 'Hammond'
is also a great addition to the
fleet inasmuch as that her exceedingly light draft is an assurance to the public that freight
will be carried by this line in the
lowest possible stages of water.
The steamer "Hammond"
leaves the Hamilton Avenue
wharf every Monday and Thursday morning at 7 a.m. for Quesnel and all southern points. Her
return trip from Quesnel is made
each Tuesday and Friday morn*
ing; at 3 a.m. Autos always await
her arrival at Quesnel so no delay is incurred.
The steamers Operator and
Conveyor have no competitors as
freight handlers. Their immense
power enables them to handle
150 tons on deck and 150 tons on
skow, the total moving capacity
of these two boats being600 tons
per trip and if necessary they can
make the Quesnell-Fort George
round trip in two days. The
"Hammond" considers 75 tons
a load.
These two larger rtoats aro at
present leaving the Hamilton
Avenue Wharf every second day
but it is expected will be put on
regular schedule as necessity
arises.
All these boats have been
newly fitted for passenger accommodation during the past
winter, new state rooms have
been added, new liner aportioned
to both the dining saloon and
state rooms, the bath rooms refitted, new silver and chinagiven
to the dining saloon stewards and
new decorations made in the
bridal chambers, in fact every
detail having a bearing on the
safety and comfort of the passengers has been gone into, and
travellers by this route are
assured of everything in the way
of home comforts to their taste.
The Fort George Trading and
Lumber Company Limited are
the agents for the line and are in
a position to sell transportation
or handle freight from the
G. T, R. to destination.
FOREST FIRE
Some excitement was caused
in town on Tuesday by the spectacle of a forest fire on the other
side of the river. The fire was
started by a camp fire belonging
to the railway construction camp
at that point. The fire was got
well under control on Tuesday
night by District Forester Mar-
ven but a strong wind the next
morning started the fire again.
Ranger Townsend was on the
scene, however, and dispatched
word immediately to the depart-
ment in town, who, with the assistance of the construction men,
got it well under control. No
damage of any note resulted. Ih,   D. v.

The condition of mining; interests in Cariboo is a subject of
vital importance to the province
at large, and a cursory glance at
tlu1 present position may not be
without good results. During
the past few years' conditions
throughout the district have remained practically the same, but
the outlook for the future is
much brighter, justifying the
statement that a new era is
about to dawn, and that before
iong "old times will come back
once more," bringing with them
the capital wherewith natural resources may be developed.
The great drawback to the development of mining in Cariboo
is been the excessive cost of
ansportihg supplies. This,
wever, will shortly be over-
inn', as by the completion of
he Grand Trunk Pacific and the
tcific and Great Eastern rail-
ays the cost of bringing sup-
ies and machinery will be cut
om 8 to 3 cents, making a dff-
rence of 100 per ton in the
eight rate. And with the de-
:lo] ment of the mining industry
will be at no distant date be-
B>i _ a branch of either of these
es, or the Canadian Northern
r Canadian Pacific, will build
ght through the mining portion
f the dislrict.
(jn Williams creek the syndi-
ate who were drilling last sea-
i are preparing to'make furth-
tests this season with a view
! establishing a dredging plant
ould prospects prove favorable,
wording to the statement of
d-tlmers who mined on the
ek in the early days, the out-
»k for a dredging plant is most
vorable. The Goldfields' corn-
any took quite a lot of gold out,
of which came out of a single
treak, but did not get any of the
ock, where the richest pay lies.
if the old-time claims that were
prked on the creek, the Prince
f Wales. Raby, Cameron, Wat-
e and Dead Broke, all of which
aid large dividends, dumped
nto the creek at about the same
ace. and owing to'having only
small head of dirty water with
'Inch to wash'up, a large per-
.ntage of the gold taken from
hoc claims was lost over the
limps, the loss being estimated
t from $500,000 to $750,000,
'hich in itself would be a paying
reposition for a dredge plant.
Outside of this, however, there
ce spots all the way up the creek
are exceedingly rich. It
mot be borne in mind that the
ttethod of working a claim during
pe early days was by drifting,
ind ground that would not pay
fhen worked in this manner has
e'eh made to yield large divi-
ends when hydraulicked or
t'ol'gvd, as may be instanced by
ipu.t s gulch and Lowhee creeks.
: can therefore be seen that
ure is still an enormous quantity
'gold in'the gravels and along
ie bed of this famous creek, that
Jade the,name of this district a

'"'outlook for hydraulic mines
"ring the coming season appears
krt',v favourable. The snowfall
oi' lhe winter, while not as heavy
ls last winter, was over the
|verage, and with an average
'ami all during the summer
ponths there should be no reason
Vny thoy should not produce as
