POSTOFFICE INSPECTOR
NOTES RAPID GROWTH
[ntimates that Change Will  be
Necessary to Avoid Conflic-
tion in Local Office.
juhn R Greenfield, Postoffice Injector f«r British Columbia, was
nestthe airivals here this week
fl Vancouver. Mr. Greenfield made
hi3 annual inspection of the postoffice
here and left yesterday for Fraser
lake going byway of the Nechaco
road by B. X. special stage accompanied by Dixi Moore, traffic inspector of
the British Columbia   Express  Com-
pany.
Mr   Greenfield   remarked   upon the
astonishing growth of this city since
his visit here last year. The growth of
the postoffice business in both towns,
he stated to The Herald, has been astonishing.
Mr. Greenfield is one of the oldest
officials of the Postoffice Department,
in point of service, as in answer to a
question by The Herald he told us that
on the sixteenth of October next he
Will have been connected with the Canadian Postal Department for forty
years.
Speaking of the mail service in this
place, and of the confiiction which canj
not be altogether avoided owing to the
distribution of mail through the two
offices in Fort (leorge end South Fort
George, Mr, (ireenlield stated that
everything was being done by the local
postmasters and by the department to
facilitate matters, and to aid the rapid
distribution of mail matter.
Mr. Greenfield intimated that a radical change would have to eventually be
made in the poatofiice question as it
affect* this locality, but that nothing
would be done until the future business
centre was tir.m I y established.

MR. AND MRS. BROWN VISIT,
Mr, and Mrs. ('. M. Brown, of new
York, the parents of Mr. Charles M.
Brown, of ihu well known mercantile
house of Close & Brown Ltd., of
tlas city, arrived here late last week
bum [cm Xew York. Mr, aod Mrs.
Brown came by way ot the Arrow
Lakes.
Tins is the second visit of Mr. and
Mrs, Brown to this city, where two
nl their Kons are now carrying on
large business enterprises. On their
last visit, during the past year, they
were accompanied by their daughter,
who waa married some weeks ago
in New York..
Mr, and Mrs. Brown are surprised
and delighted at the growth of South
fort George. They will remain here
lor 6ome weeks, before leaving for
California where they will spend tlle
Kinter before returning cast.
Mr, and Mrs. Brown are residing
■■ith their sons in the beautiful log
bungalow which Mr. Chas Brown ar.d
Mr, Harry ll. Close have recently
bu"t overlooking the Fraser river
1,11 Houston Avenue.
Advocating the construction of an
independent railroad from Vancouver
north to the Peace River Valley and
the territory adjacent thereto, Mr. H.
H. Stevens, M. P., in his speech today
to tho Progressive Club members, intimated that such a line might be built
if Vancouver and the districts mostly
concerned demanded the road.
Mr. Stevens spoke on the port of
Vancouver and its relation to transportation and intlustrial facilities. He
touched upon harbor development and
the preservation of industrial sites, and
spoke strongly in favor of locating industrial sites along the banks of the
Fraser river, particularly at the
mouths of both the North and South
arms. He referred to the local Indian
reserves. His statistics of Vancouver's
growth interested the club, and Mr.
Stevens was frequently interrupted with
applause.
Mr. Stevens opened his remarks on
future railroad construction with an
estimate of that territory which Vancouver might rightfully consider her
own, and he defined the boundaies of
this as extending from the coast east
to a line drawn down through the middle of Saskatchewan and as far north
between those boundaries as it was
possible to serve. He spoke of freight
rates in this territory and urged concerted action on specific proportions of
the freight tariff rather than the whole
complicated mass of rates.
"We need a link to those wonderfully fertile regions which lie in the Peace
River and adjacent valleys," Mr. Stevens said.

DEATH OF DB. WATT.
Dr. Alfred A. T. Watt, superintendent of tbe William Head quarantine
station, near Victoria, committed
suicide whilst temporarily insane by
throwing himself from a third story
window in the St. James hospital,
Victoria,  last week.
Dr, Watt was well known in this
section, ns he practiced medicine at
Quesnel for some years.
Dr. Watt has been worrying a good
deal as a result of the enquiry into
the conduct of affairs at the quarantine station, which followed the complaints made by the passengers of
the Montcagle as to their treatment
while confined there in April last.
He had, however, been in a depressed state before that. His nervous trouble dates back to the death
of his only brother, Hubert, in Toronto early last year, and coming
soon after this was the serious illness of his eldest boy, which again
called him to the east.
His doctors thought it advisable
to place him In the hospital for
treatment. Whilst in the hospital he
was watched by  two nurses in turn.
On Saturday be seemed to be
brighter, but at the same time, as
was remembered after hi.*, death, he
gave the Impression of one who was
revolving something of great importance.
After the event, it is almost cer-
| tain tbat he was then contemplating
j ending his life.
At five minutes to five o'clock on
the day of lhe suicide, he was still
in a deep sleep to all appearances,
and the nurse left the room to go
across thc corridor for some water.
She was back within two minutes to
find the bed empty and the window
curtains disarranged.
Dr. Watt was found below with
his head crushed  in  and quite dead,
Dr. Watt wns born in Mcaford and
was the son of Dr, Hugh Watt, for
mnny years member (or Cnrihoo In
the local house antl now resident of
Elko.
The following interesting letter appears in the New York Times, taking
exception to a claim of pioneering in
the northern portion of British .Columbia. The lady pioneers are Burely
worthy of special mention. The question of who the first white woman to
visit Fort George is a matter upon
which we have often heard discussion.
This honor is supposed to lie with
Princess Taxis, of Roumania :
I have been interested in the announcement in the New York papers
anent Miss Mary Joeb's intended trip
to Northern British Columbia and Alaska; but 1 feel it an injustice to our
northern pioneer women to let pass,
uncorrected, tho statement that Mis3
Jobe will be "the first white woman to
visit the land of the Eskimo and these
. inaccessible wilds of Northern British
Columbia." My mother was a pioneer
i of Northern British Columbia, my father being the Hudson's Bay Company's
officer of a trading post, and I was
born and brought up in those "inaccessible wilds." We knew women, the
wives of trappers and prospectors, who
went with their husbands much farther
north than we had gone, even to the
moss marshes and snows beyond the
mighty Peace river.
My mother's sister, wife of the captain of a whaling fleet, holds the female record for penetrating the far
north, although she has never published the fact. She spent three years
in the Arctic Circle, taking her little
girl with her. The natives had seen
few white women. She traveled as
far north as many of the male explorers who have missed the pole. They
were walled into the circle one year by
the ice at the north of the straits. The
third year their ship was swallowed up
under the ice, but all on board escaped
and, after months of terrible hardship,
reached open water and were taken
aboard by another whaler.
Somewhere in that white waste of
Eskimo Land is the beautiful daughter
of a titled English family. She gave
up the world and her fine talent in
music to follow her husband, a young
churchman, who felt himself called to
the missionary wotk there. There are
other women, some delicately nurtured,
as this missionary's wife, who have
followed their men in exploring, fur
trading, missioning, and gold mining
all through the country which Miss
Jobe will traverse. They have lived
there and borne their children there,
hundreds of miles from any other
"Whites," their only neighbors, if
they had any, being the simple, kindly natives. Miss Jobe will find her
path secure and her welcome warm
wherever she meets a human being,
which would not be the case if she
were "penetrating" tVew York City
for the first time.
There is much to do, to enjoy, to
learn, and to win in the wondiirful
Far North; but it has not been left
for the young femlninehood ot this
generation to he "the first" in any
part of it, The Intrepid Woman has
already written her history there.

New York,  July 21, 1913.
"WILDCATTERS" DRIVEN CONSTRUCTION WORK
TO THE MOUNTAINS IS LIVENED UP
Toronto Paper's Remarks on Subdivision Promoters' Work
in This and Adjacent
Districts.
The Toronto Saturday Night is on the
war path after the scalps of more
townsites in this district. Toronto
Saturday Night has done great work
in assisting to protect the public
against all sorts of come-on games and
get-rich-quick propositions, and its references to doubtful townsite
propositions in this section have
often characterized its policy
of being a "paper worth while." We
publish hereunder the Toronto paper's
references to the townsite of "Fraser
City" a promotion which is not being
handled up here at all, although the
"townsite" is situated about 22 miles
up the river from this point. Apparently the promoters of "Fraser City"
are confining themselves to the longdistance methods entirely, for no
breath of any extensive selling campaign has yet reached us. We might
mention that this "Fraser City" proposition was the first townsite ever surveyed in the Fort George district, as
an old railway Bhowed a crossing of the
Fraser river at that point, which might
have given it some importance. This
crossing was eliminated by subsequent
surveys, however, and left the Fra>er
City of today on the wrong side of the
river for the railway.
References are also made in the
Toronto paper to the townsites at the
mouth of the Willow River. Th-; Herald intends to investigate tbe whole
Willow River situation by a persona
visit to the ground and will publish its
opinions thereon in a future issue. So
far as we can ascertain, the subdivision
game is leing worked to the limit
there, and until some real development
takes place the whole proposition assumes the aspect of a big realty gamble with the purchasers backing along-
Recent Orders from Chief Engineer Responsible for Increased Activity.
Progress on construction is now
marked by the recent orders issued by
the engineering department to rush
the work. Reports from up tbe Fraser
indicate that the large camps are putting on additional forces and that the
grade is being rapidly completed all
along the route. Steel is advancing
over the finished grade daily, and is
now at Mile 142, a point 89 miles south
of Tete Jaune Cache where the steel
ended at the opening of navigation in
May last.
The contractors have a new depot
and cache it Mile 129, and the railroad
seows are now running south from that
point.

TEMPORARY BRIDGES TO
BE CONSTRUCTED
REPRIEVE FOR SPINTLUM
Paul Spintlum has been granted a
reprieve by Justice Mortison until December 12, to allow the Court of Appeal, which will sit on November 7, to
hear the questions raised at the trial.
Official information given out in
Winnipeg recc-ntly, states that the G.
T.P. officials expect steel to reach
the third crossing of the Fraser, at
Mile 189 west of the summit by the
middle of November. The information
further states that the track will be
carried across this point on a tempornry bridge.
Further statements made follow:
The construction of the lift bridge
at Fort (leorge will be completed
during the coming winter.
Three thousand men and eleven
steam shovels aro now at work upon
the 100 mlleH west of Fort George,
while there aro 4,000 on the grade
east of Fort George. During the past
month Foley, Wc)ch & Stewart have
carried out wortt to the value ot one
million dollars.
A large building ls being erected by
Mr. Anthony Wedgis, of this town,
on Fourth Street, opposite the Fort
George Theatre. This building is 32
x90 feet and two stories high.
The upper story will be fitted up
as a rooming house and the lower
floor is to be used as a show room
tor the furniture business commenced by Mr. Wedgis in the Burns Bldg.
Mr. Wedgis intends to equip his
rooming house in the most up-to-
date manner.
Another large rooming house, now
nearing completion, is the building
of Mr. J. E. Rowbarts, on Third
Street. This building is 32x90 feet.
It is wired for electric lights, and
has its own water system and bath
room.
Other buildings are approaching
completion all over the city, and it
is reported that a large building will
be erected on the corner of Second
and Hamilton Avenue before the fall
of the: year. This valuable corner is
owned by tho Western Trust Company, of Winnipeg.
Rogers Construction Company,  intend
to complete this work immediately.
The Bates-Rogers Company also
broke ground for the first pier on the
bridge at Mile 186, near the mouth of
Bear river, last Saturday. They have
a big camp there and work on the
bridge will go forward rapidly from
now on. Piles are being driven in the
river at thia point in preparation for
sinking other piers. Two sl earn shovels are being put in at this point to
make an approach for tbe bridge.
Siems, Carey & Co., in their camp
one mile south of the mouth of the Willow river; are working a large force of
men. They are "shoo-tty'* blasting iu
some heavy rock work, and using the
materia! for ballasting through the
muskeg fills.
The steamer Conveyor brought down
a steam shovel for Magoffin & Bergh
yesterday, which was delivered at Mile
220.
Stanley P. Dunlevy, accompanied
by Mr. Garfield Smith, a civil engineer, and Mr. L. Gray, nn English
capitalist, arrived he,Te this weeit
from Vancouver. Mr. Dunlevy has
lnrge mining interests in the Horsefly country, where his company, the
Horsefly River Gold Dredging and
Mining Company Ltd., are drilling
a large section of alluvial gold property, on which the company intends
to install a Ilucyrus dredge when the
prospecting is completed. Mr. Dunlevy has large interests in the Peace
River country nnd arrived here in
connection with the, cruising of some
of his properties in that section,
A HAMHuTH FLAGPOLE.
The city of Vancouver will have within a few weeks what is believed to be
the biggest one-piece fltigpole in the
world. The big flagstaff is 205 feet in
length and was cut from a British Columbia fir tree. It has been brought to
this city and will soon be erected in
front of the Provincial courthouse.
The immense pole will be set in ten
feet of solid concrete so that it will
tower 195 feet in the air. A huge
Union Jack, 3G feet in length, will fly
from the top of the pole and will be on
a level with the top of Vancouver's
highest buildings.
For the purpose of presenting to the
citizens of the United States east of

THE COUNTRY NEEDS MORE ROADS.
THE duty which the government of the province of
British Columbia owes to the Fort George district is
not being properly attended to. Whilst the appropriations which have been made for roads, trails and bridges
in this section of the province have been large, and of late
years have been generously increased in successive years
to meet the growing demands of this section, yet they
have not by any means been sufficient to adequately provide for the proper opening up of the territory as justified
by the march of progress which railway construction
brings in its train.
Although lhe Grand Trunk Pacific Railway company,
are rapidly completing their transcontinental road into
this place, and on to Prince Rupert, the large country
which lies adjacent to the railway between this point and
Tete Jaune Cache is populated only along the rivers and
few roads have been built by the government to assist
farming development. Take as an instance the necessity
of a wagon road between this point and Quesnel, 100 miles
south on the Fraser, to be built on the east side of the
river. Under present conditions the road between these
points is on the west side of the river and is 30 miles
longer than the proposed road, as it makes a wide detour
by way of Blackwater, an insignificant point on the Yukon telegraph line, and it follows this route for no other
reason than the fact that the original Indian trail to Fort
George went this way.
This is not intended to be a "roast" on the government,
as the writer and The Herald are both strongly conservative (by conviction), yet it appears that strong measures
must be used to awaken the government to a sense of
their responsibilities in this section. Our active member,
Mr. John A. Fraser, M.P.P., does his best for this section
and has accomplished a considerable measure of success
in providing large increases in the appropriations, but the
work he has accomplished must not leave him impressed
with the idea that the people are satisfied or that the
government are properly opening up this territory.
It must be borne in mind that by the time another
winter is upon us the steel rails of the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway will have passed through this place, and the
completion of the system will be a matter of months only.
The real development of the Fort George district will
then commence, and the vast agricultural territory which
surrounds this place will be available for settlement without any "pioneer" difficulties such as must even now be
contended with. It must reasonably be expected, therefore, that with the arrival of the steel the population of
this widely-advertised district will increase in leaps and
bounds, and the road work done by the government will
have to play an important part in the settlement of the
district.
There are a few roads which have been built in certain
directions hereabouts, such as the Chief Lake road, the
Six-mile Lake road, a road to Giscombe Portage, and the
trunk road to the Nechaco, but many other and very
much better roads are needed here-and needed badly.
Here are some roads which the government should
build without delay:
A good road to Giscombe Portage continued to Summit
Lake to give proper entrance to the Peace River country
direct from Fort George, the most natural route into the
Peace River.
A road which could be used by automobiles from
Quesnel to South Fort George over the Rognass survey.
A first-class wagon road to connect Barkerville with
the Grand Trunk Pacific by way of Bear Lake, giving
access to the mining territory from the G.T.P. and to the
wonderful Bear Lake hunting district.
T^IE Willow River News is a sassy little sheet, but it
appears to be wise in its generation. Speaking of
the Fort George Tribune, with which it differs in Willow
River matters, it says: "But the Tribune's editor, like
many another 'free and independent exponent of public
opinion,' is neither independent nor free. On all important matters this policy is shaped for him in an office in
Vancouver. He receives his orders, and has to obey
them. 'His not to reason why, his not to make reply;'
all he has to do is to do as he is told. When he hears
His Master's voice he listen's heedfully, and carries out
his instructions with trained intelligence."
A Broad Invitation
Last fall a rumor was spread
broadcast that food supplies were
short in South Kort George utul that
great hunger and destitution would
prevail before spring, which was to
a certain extent true on account of
our extreme isolation, and the early
closing of navigation, causing many
of our citizens to leave for the winter, and causing complete stagnation in the influx of settlers arriving
here.
We would like to state here that
the KENNEDY-BLAIR CO., have
taken due precaution against similar
conditions this year.
Since the opening of navigation
we have imported one thousand tons
of merchandise.
We have a thousand tons more to
arrive here before the closing season.
The transit of this vast tonnage is
in the hands of our famous scow-
men, Admiral Geo. Williams, R.
Alexander and W. McLaren.
We therefore issue a cordial invitation to our citizens to remain here.
We also extend this invitation to
people from all parts of the world
who anticipate a trip to FortGeorge
either for business purposes or investment, to come and bring along
your friends.
That the KENNEDY-BLAIR CO.
will Feed you, Clothe you,
Furnish your House, give
you maximum values and
minimum prices.

\Vr. Tate was assured by Operating Superintendent Dempsey
that the Grand Trunk will have
steel laid as far east as the division point between Prince Rupert and Fort George by August
1, The grade is practically completed already, but one bridge
remains to be built. An automobile service will be started
from Hazelton to Smithers as
soon as the roads improve. The
machines are now at Hazelton
ready to be placed in commission.
"I never saw the Bulkley valley looking better," declared Mr.
Tate. The grain and hay are in
splendid condition, being well
along, and an excellent crop is
assured. The ranchers in that
istrict have all made money.
One ranch, the Carr property of

revenues to its owner this season
amounting to $11,000.
There is great activity in the

is clearing land, while other developments are going forward.
"With the advent of the new

big increase in mining activity

not so well adapted to the heavy

southern portions of the prairie
country. The grain weighs a
pound a bushel heavier than Red
Fife, and yields from 20 to 40 per
cent more an acre. The best yield
yet recorded was 53 bushels per

Fuel for British Navy
If the Dominion of Canada is
to contribute toward the supply
of oil fuel for the British admiralty in furtherance of its scheme
for operating warships by that
method, the tar sands of the
Athabasca river will be the principal source, in the opinion of
James White, deputy head of the
conservation committee.
"If the tar sands of the Athabasca mean anything," said Mr.
White, "it is that below them
are immense quantities of petroleum. On three occasions wells
have been sunk, but this was always done on the wrong principle. The boring was not of
sufficient size.
"It is wholly probable that if
the examinations were made under proper conditions the supply
would be forthcoming in paying
quantities. We are endeavoring
to interest capitalists in the proper development of the deposits,
The oil in the eastern wells is too

the Fitzhugh Lime & Stone Co., will be
inspected, and the town of Edson will
be visited. The run through the magnificent Bcenery of Jasper Park will be
made in daylight both ways. The
gre»',er part of Sunday will be spent
quietly enjoying the views obtainable
at Tete Jaune Cache.
It has been decided by the committee
of the Board of Trade arranging the
trip to put on an additional car for the
mountains, if sufficient applications for
reservations should be received to render this practicable. If this is done, it
will be practicable to tike ladies, the
extra car being reserved for parties
with ladies. To permit this additional
car to be arranged for, applications
must be in the hands of the secretary
of the Board of Trade within the next
few days.
The cost of the mountain trip will be
$35, which includes sleeping car berth
for three nights.

BIG FUR CATCH.
Ten thousand dollars in furs
were brought into Edmonton last
week by Colin Fraser and Ben
Hursell, fur traders, from Fort
Smith and Chipewayan,
They report the past year to
have been an excellent one for
fur, giving a large increase over
the catch of the previous year,
in consequence of the plentiful
supply of rabbits for the fur-
bearing creatures, The year has
also been a remarkable one so far
as fox whelps are concerned.
Word of the price they were
commanding reached even the
Indians farthest north, and they
especially neglected almost everything else in their search for the
precious animals.
Mr. Hursel reports the Indians
to be in good circumstances this
year, the large fur catch having
prepared them for  next winter.

Moving pictures of the inception and

employed for summoning aid, actual
scenea of fighting and subduing the
flames with thrilling incidents involved
are to be taken for the Provincial Government. An English expert has been
engaged to get films of tlie system of
forest lire protection that has been installed, showing it at work in ils various departments. These will bo exhibited at eastern Canadian and British centers of population. In addition
the film artist will take a series of pictures of the logging industry in British Columbia. It is proposed to reproduced on the film every phase of the
industry. Virgin forests will be shown.
The   operations   known   as staking,
falling, flying, bucking, snipping, scaling, log marking and hand logging will j
also be depicted.   Such reproductions I
in film form will be valuable  to inves- j
tors in the industry as affording an ob- j

Alpine Club Now Studying Peaks
of Rockies in Jasper
Park.
Seventy-five members of the Alpine
Club of Canada have struck camp in
the Yellowhead Pass country, west of
Edmonton, where they will remain until August 9, to locate the most feas-
able routes to the highest peaks in the
Canadian Rockies. The Premier is
Mount Robson, which rises 13,700 feet
above sea level, with a three-faced
pyramid at the crest. The base, sixteen miles from a*railway, is the sight
of this year's camp.
Seasoned climbers declare that Yellowhead Pass is the most spectacular
on this and the European continents
and Mount Robson is a test for the
most experienced. Robson's summit is
bold and rugged, the base being dotted
with evergreen trees. Above the timber line, which is distinctly marked in
all directions, clouds shield the sentinel
of the range in its stark nakedness.
The top is shrouded in eternal ice and
snow.   Few have reached the apex.
The climbers are accompanied by experienced guides, among them being
Conrad Kairns of Au.itria, and W.
Schaull'ellbergcr of Switzerland. The
party includes Rev. G. B. Kinney and
Donald Phillips, who were first to scale
Mount Robson; also C. S. Thompson
and A. L. Mumm of the English Alpine
Club, and W. W. Foster, deputy minister of public works for the Province
of British Columboa.
Among the Americans in the party
are: Professor Fay, Tuft's College,
Boston; Professor Freeborn, New York;
Mary M. Voux, Philadelphia; Dr.Stone,
President of Purdue University, Lafayette, Ind., and Dr. Wolcott, secretary
of the Smithsonian Institution.

PURE BRED STOCK
EOR BULKLEY VALLEY
One of the moat hopeful signs of the
agricultural development in Northern
British Columbia is the recent importation of blooded horses and cattle by the
farmers of the Bulkley Valley. This
indicates the serious purpose of the
bettlere to develop stock raising as a
leading industry of the country and
shows the permanent character of the
district as a farming section.
Several fine horses havebeenbrought
to the Hudson Bay Hunch, near Smithers, by R. J. McDonnell, the owner.
One of his best animals ia the imported
Clydesdale horse "Royal Diamond Jub-
ileo," which was brought from Scotland.
Consignments of pedigreed Holstein
cattle have lately been received in the
district by farmers who are engaged
in dairying and want to improve their
herds. This new stock will be of great
benefit to the whole farming community, giving opportunities for breeding
up the horses and cattle of the Bulkley
Valley to a better grade.

The Toronto paper's remarks follow :
The long-distance  western subdivision promoters are evidently becoming
desperate.   Having run themselves too
(ar afield in the prairie towns and cities, for even their  elastic consciences,
wveral have now taken  refuge in the
Rocky Mountains.   In a way this is a
strategic   move.     Hills   and   running
brooks,   with   their  romantic environ-
mint, make   an   ideal   atmosphere for
soliloquizing and artistic  requirements
so necessary to the visionary vendor of
subdivided  farms  and forests.   Then,
when these dreams have ail been beautifully inscribed on paper for the ber.e-
ftt of "friends" and prospective clients
abroad, the lack of transportation facilities ami general information! makes it
much nmre difficult to secure  an accural*' line on lhe authenticity  of  state-

WILLOW RIVER
BRITISH  COLUMBIA
The Grand Trunk Pacific Railway Company are
now disposing of the remaining portion of their
lots in the new town of Willow River at the confluence of the Fraser, Salmon and Willow rivers.
By those who are in close touch of the true conditions, this new town is considered to be one of
future importance in Central British Columbia.
In investing in Willow River property be sure
that your property comes to you direct from the
Grand Trunk Pacific Railway Company-make no
mistake in this.    There is only one official and
original Grand Trunk Pacific Railway town of
Willow River at the confluence of the Fraser,
Salmon and Willow rivers.    It is located on Lot
785.   Station site was approved by Board of Railway Commissioners under date of March 26th,
1912, Order No. 16179.   We have no interest in
outside subdivisions.   For authentic Grand Trunk

A lii« miction sale of horses will
bo held in Kort George on August
23rd. next. Auctioneer Mills will conduct the sale.
Several new motor cars arrived
here recently. The number is now
ahout fifteen. These cars have not
more than live miles of good road
to run on hereabouts, nnd they
travel principally between this town
nnd Fort George, a distance of some
three  miles.
The prices of admission in the Fort
George Theatre on Fourth Street
have been reduced to twenty five
cents all over the house, excepting
box Beats wliich arc fifty cents. This
reduction was made in response lo
a general request.
Edson J. Chamberlin, president of i
the Grand Trunk Pacilic Railway,
accompanied by Mr. Smithers, of the
board of directors, and a party of
officials and their friends, are expect-
cd to arrive here during the next
week or ten days for a visit of in
spection  to  Prince  George.
Georgo .1. Hammond, president ot
the Natural Resources Security Company Limited, arrival on the B. X.
Inst Thursday. Wc wonder if Mr.
Hammond will get off that old
wheeze about looking forward to the
time when his business will permit
him to settle down in their midst
nnd  watch Fort George grow'.'
Mr. George C. Taylor, representing
the R. (i. Dun Mercantile Agency,
of the Vancouver branch, arrived
here on the Steamer 1!. X. on Thursday. Mr. Taylor is con,idling the reports for the well-known agency upon
the business houses of this section.
Mr. Taylor last visited this place in
November last, and is much impressed with the development of the
town. The Dun agency was establish
ed in  L8-11 and has 2i!il offices.
New names for towns nlong the
route of the G. T. P. are being demanded by the post office department
in cases where the names applied by
the townsite owners tend lo cause
any confusion in the mail distribution. The Grand Trunk Pacific have
been obliged to submit to the naming
of a post oiiice on their townsite of
Fraser Lake as "Fraser Town," and
the townsite of "Willow City" at
the moutii of the Willow river was
recently changed by the postal department to "Willow River."
Chief of police Dunwoodie, late of
Victoria, was amongst the arrivals
on the Steamer B. X. last Thursday.
The new chief of polict has a long
experience in the provincial force,
and has taken up his duties here as
a promotion by Chief of Provincial
Police Colin Campbell. Chief Dnn-
woodie has commenced to tackle the
police, work in this vicinity in a
