handsome building on the comer, and
they will occupy the ground floor
with another branch of their business
as soon as the building is completed.
The corner is one of the best on
Hamilton Avenue, and will add very
greatly to the appearance of the
business section if the purchasers
carry their intention into eflect.
Other realty deals of considerable

"B. C. EXPRESS" HIKES A
A RECORD TRIP
Captain Busey Doing Great Work
on the Upper Fraser.
The Steamer B. C. Express completed a record trip from Tete Jaune
this week, making the 315 mile run
from the Cache to this point in an
elapsed time of forty-two hours, bringing down a full load of freight and
eighty passengers.
After this steamer comeB to her rest
here, there is sometimes seen on the
streets' of the town a man with a brass
bound cap which shields the keen eyes
of a river captain whose work on the
upper Fraser is passing without much
well deserved praise, in the press of
events.   We refer to Captain Busey.
Captain Busey is performing a great
service for this country, and he is performing this service well. Already he
has successfully navigated the Steamer
B. C. Express on four round trips to
Tete Jaune Cache since the opening of
navigation, covering a distance of over
2,500 miles.
But the captain has a long record of
success as a river navigator. He
worked on the command of the Hudson's Bay Campany's steamboats in
northern waters, that are navigable to
the sea, for over twelve years, and in
the Skeena river he bears the reputation of being a great river man, and a
record of having run the Kitslas Canyon at the highest stage of water,
On every trip the Captain makes to
Tete Jaune he faces the terror of the
Grand Canyon, with its seething whirlpools and death record. With a seventy-five thousand dollar steamboat obeying the turn of his hand the captain
runs the canyon where other boats line
their way dwon, and he runs it with
his'white flyer with knowledge of his
ability to run it successfully.
Captain Busey is an old Mississippi
captain. He never strays very far from
his boat, and has little to say for himself eyen when pressed for information
about his work. He is a typical sailor-
man, one of those whem one would expect to see on the flying bridge of an
ocean liner, yet no ocean gri
captain that ever walked the Sl
could rghtly feel more proud of his*
record as a master of craft than Captain Busey of the Steamer British Columbia Express.

There is considerable complaint
about horses being allowed to roam

some of the owners of these animals.

WILLOW RIVElt TOWN-
SITEJEVELOPING
Work Has Now Started on Office
Buildings—Gasoline Launch
in Service.
Things are moving at Willow river,
the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway
Company's townsite twenty five miles
east of this point. Mr. F. W. Crawford, the general manager of
the Transcontinental Townsite Company, for British Columbia, tells the
Herald that work on the offices of
the company at Willow Rivet is well
advanced, and considerable development is going on on the townsite.
Mr. H. J. Latham, agent for tbe
company on the Willow River town-
site, arrived here, this week, and he
is now stationed on the ground.
A splendid gasoline launch congsi-
ned to Mr. Crawford reached here
this week from Tete Jaune to run
between the different townsites of the
company in this section. The launch
ran down the river from Tete Jaune
under the guiding band of A. Bucheu
ot the Fort George Hardware Co.
CARIBOO GOLD YIELD IS UNDERESTIMATED
Referring to the yield of gold from
the Barkerville section of this district,
John Stevenson, writing in the Vancouver Daily Province, says:
"The gold that has been taken out of
Cariboo haa never been correctly stated. It has always been too low. The
mineowners always kept the teal output a secret. This secrecy was intensified after Governor Seymour put on a
tax of 50 cents an ounce. From that
moment the government has never
been able to ascertain the amount. J.
T. Steele, John Brown, gold commis-
mouth of Biggs' Gulch, where three
old Frenchmen had been ground-sluic-
ing three or four years. When I asked
them on the evening of my arrival how
they had been doing, they said nothing
at all; that they had not been paying
expenses. But when I told them that
I had prospected the same ground in
1862 with good results, they then said
they had $180,000 on hand, and would
make $20,000 more that season, when
their claims, they thought, would be
worked out. Then they would go to
Paris and enjoy life.
This was done by one "who knew nothing about the country, and still less
than nothing about Cariboo. Then Mr.
Robertson, our present provincial mineralogist, cut that estimate in two, on
what authority I do not know. Twenty-five millions never paid for the
goods, tools, machinery and food products which were shipped into Cariboo.
Among these goods, if I.may call them
such, ware most expensive pumps, boilers and engines. Seven of these
pumps in the Kurtz and Lane company's claims can never be removed

fER A RECORD
New Organization Promises to
Make Popular the Strenuous
Game.
South Fort George now possesses,
amongst other athletic organizations
an up-to-the-minute; football team.
This team intends to do its share in
making popular the strenuous game
of "soccer" in the northland.
To add to the interest, and to Und
zest to the series of games which the
South Fort George Football club intends to engage in, a prominent barrister of this city, Mr. Neville Montgomery, has announced that he will
present a challenge shield to be won
by a series of seven games. This
shield has already been ordered
through Mr. Montgomery's jewellers,
alnd should arrive here during the ensuing month.
Tho team will play the first game
at the ball park on Dominion Day,
and the kick-off will take place sharp
at 1:30.
Mr. John Bronger, another keen enthusiast of the game, with his characteristic generosity, has offered to
donate to the club a complete equipment.
The team, as placed for the game
next Thursday, is as follows: Goal,
George Burley; Full backs, Aithenscn
and Campbell; Half backs, Mclntyre
Hillhouse and Kelly; Forwards, Shannon, Lee, Richmond, Ansell and Mil-
burn.

sioner, and Geo. Tnnstall, gold commissioner, collected the output from
each working for our own information:
Speaking for myself, and I think they
all did the same, I paid periodical visits to each creek, including all the outside creeks and workings, and enquired
carefully into their output. We got
our information after a great deal of
work, but in some cases the mineowners were very reluceant.
To exemplify the difficulty of getting
honest and correct returns, I will give
this example.   I went in 1874 to the
When Brown, Steele, Tunstall and I
compared notes in later days, we decided that the lowest estimates we could
make of the output of Cariboo was
$100,000,000. Williams' and Lightning,
we were sure, paid more than $50,000,-
000. Stouts' Gulch paid $1000 per lin,
eal foot for a mile. The lower hundred
feet of the Steele claims on Williams'
Creek, abreast of Richfield, paid over
$500,000.
Over thirty years ago, a stranger,
who was writing up the country, undertook to cut $100,000,000 in two.
again. Take also into account the
freight paid on all these goods and supplies for three years-and heavy years
they were—when freight was 78 cents
per pound from Yale and Lillooet to
Cariboo. In conversation with George
Murdock, a few weeks ago, he said
that no one who knew anything about
Cariboo would venture to suggest that
the output of the mines was lower
than $t)0,000,000, although he felt sure
it must have been $100,000,000. Geo.
Murdock was forty-nine years in Cariboo and must be considered an authority.
There are six steam shovels delivered on the work between this place
and Fraser Lake, 120 miles west. The
big steamboats Operator and Conveyor are busily engaged in landing
these great delving machines trom
points on tbe upper river along the
grade to the west of here. The shovel
working along the Nechaco waterfront ls making great progress, and
all along the line these shovels are
operating night and day.
Sam Magoffin's big steam shovel
was delivered at Mile 232, one mile
above the bridge crossing here yesterday. This is one ot tbe largest
shovels along tbe line of construction. It will take twelve days to reassemble.
P. G. E. PROGRESS.
A string of construction camps now
extend along that portion oi the
route of the Pacific Great Eastern
Railway from railhead at Chekamus
Valley, above Newport, • to a point
twenty miles north of Lillooet. The
grading is in progress all along the
line except on the summit of the
coast range and the adjacent approaches where large gangs are busy
clearing right-of-way. Mr. P. Welch
who has a contract for building thc
road from North Vancouver to Fort
George recently arrived in Vancouver
from an overland trip from Newport
to Lillooet.
There are now nearly 3000 men on
the payrolls of the subcontractors.
Steam shovels have just been moved
on to the work along tbe Fraser
river north of Lillooet. The scene of
greatest activity at present ls the
north shore of Seaton Lake, and
and likewise along Anderson Lake.
Grading ls also in progress in Pemberton Meadows.
The location of the line between the
Second Narrows and Newport, a distance ot 42 mileB has been completed. The work all the way from Potnt
Atkinson to the head- of Howe Sound
wtll be exceptionally heavy, the average cost exceeding $100,000 a mile.
There will be at feast twelve tunnels on that section, the longest
being estimated at 860 feet. Mr. S.
A. Dice and party made tbe survey. 'I'I"

A MENACE
THE problem of transportation, which has held the northland in
chancery since time began, was greatly alleviated this spring
when the opening of navigation found the twin steel rails of the
Grand Trunk Pacific at the head of navigation on the Fraser fiver, which bisects such a vast section of New British Columbia.
These rails, laid through the Yellowhead Pass during the winter,
opened up an avenue of commerce between Fort George and Edmonton direct by river and rail. Before the advent of the steel
through the pass the whole vast northland was fed and developed
by freight delivered from the C.P.R., J.-67 miles from the foot of
navigation over a wagon road.
The fruits of the advance made in the construction of the G.T.
P. are everywhere apparent. Where development loitered along,
struggling with the transportation problem, it now runs
wildly at every turn. The endless procession of craft from the
end of steel unload on the shore of the river here the requisites
for every branch of human endeavor. »
With the opening of the avenue to the east the Fort George
country has rapidly populated. The source of supply, though
ready and easily accessible, would, if interfeared with, bring a
shortage in a very brief period. In the past, with a small population, we have witnessed at times such shortage of provisions,
building material and other necessities of existence. With the
vastly increased population any repetition of this condition will
result with more serious effect than hitherto—should it transpire.
Having in view the six months winter which must settle down
upon the northland until the steel reaches here next spring, the
mercantile firms will import a heavy store of freight for the winter consumption. This together with the freight now being delivered, will keep the water course between this point and the
head of navigation alive with steamboats until the last minute
this fall.
The purpose of the foregoing, is to introduce the subject of the
Grand Trurilc Pacific Railway Company's bridges which cross the
Fraser river at two points between this place and Tete Jaune
Cache, the head of navigation, So far we have avoided this subject, owing to the vagueness of the rumors that they would block
the navigation of the river for steamboats. Recent reports, however, indicate that this is precisely what is going to happen if the
railway concern are allowed to carry out their plans.
At Dome Creek, 156 miles up the Fraser river from this point,
the first bridge crossing is now ready for the barricading of the
river, The cement abutments are in place and the steel is on the
ground. Material for this bridge has been delivered some distance ahead of the steel, and even if steel were laid to that point
it would be some time before general freight would be delivered
at a point where it could be reached by steamboats below the
bridge. There is another bridge where the same thing applies
about 85 miles above here.
This matter should be dealt with immediately.   The railroad
company must not for a moment be allowed to tie up the delivery
. of freight into this section ahead of their steel.   They can find
means for the delivery of their own freight over the steel which
is in the contractor's hands butjiot for the use of the public, the
consideration of whom must be gained through their own efforts.
The type of bridges to be used on this river, we understand,
are without swing or draw spans, and, when completed, will shut
off the navigation of the river effectually for steamboats owing
to their low levels.   We are not worrying about this, as the steel
looks good to The Herald, but there are those who regret to see
the river blocked.   There is no doubt that a fine tourist route will
thus be obliterated if the plans of the railroad concern are carried
into effect,
TO PROMOTE THE "CITY BEAUTIFUL"
QNE of the most beautiful spots in the country is undoubtedly
the lake created by the high water on the Hudson's Bay company's property, and stretching for a mile or more southwesterly
through the properties lying in that direction. A considerable
portion of this land is subject to this inundation every year,- and
in low water a creek runs through the length of it and creates a
slough. If a dam were put in across the mouth of the creek at the
Fraser river this beautiful little lake could become a permanent
feature of the local surroundings, a feature which wi!l wonderfully enhance the values of the property along its shores, and at
the same time give access by water to many properties. There
is a considerable amount of land affected, of course, but we
lelieve that if the government were approached on this matter
some sort of an agreement could be made which would compensate these property holders. This matter we commend for the
serious consideration of every interest here. The nearest lake to
this place is six miles distant, whereas the lake now formed on
the properties referred to is located in the heart of the townsite
area. The dam which would be necessary to retain the waters,
we are informed, could be built for less than a thousand dollars.
TT is to be hoped that the efforts of the various "committees in
charge of the First of July Celebration to be held here on Tuesday will, together with a large attendance of people, result in a
most enjoyable day. The celebration of Dominion Day in South
Fort George has become an institution, and as the years roll by
we have no doubt that this day will be an event which will draw
people to the future city from points hundreds of miles on either
side of us along the route of the Grand Trunk Pacific railway.

rancher was detained many moons,
and Pete -dug a line of post holes

powers. Finally the boss returned,
and had to come across to Peter for
the line of' excavations. Further, we
have Pete's assurance that he was
later paid six cents each to fill the

PRESCRIPTIONS A SPECIALTY
We have just received_a full
line of the above. This is a
new and complete stock.
REPORTED DROWNED--FOUND ALIVE.
It has developed that the two
Frenchmen, Maurice Streifl and Samuel, Tonduz who were reported to
have drowned in the Grand Canyon a
couple of weeks ago, are alive and
well.
Following thc publication of the
report here and elsewhere that the
men had gone down with a wrecked
scow, the Belgian Consulate at Edmonton was requested by friends to
investigate the report and Maurice
Poldt wis sent out to find the men
or the bodies if possible. Mr. Polet
arrived in South Fort George on
Saturday morning on thc Steamer
B. C. ExpresB from Tete Jaune Cache
after having made careful inquiries
among rivermen along the way without finding any trace of thc lost
Frenchman. While making a search
of thc hunkhouses and lunch counters along the river front in South
Fort George on Saturday Mr. Polet
found Tobduz who had arrived in
town on Friday evening from a construction camp. Through Tonduz Mr
Polet learned that Streifl was soma
place along the river walking ln the
direction of Tete Jaune hoping to
get back to Edmonton. Streifl is
well connected in France and his
friends have been anxiously awaiting
news of him.
M.\ Tondua relates that they were
actually in a wreck in the canyon,
when their scow struck a rock but
that every member of the crew escaped and that most of the cargo
was saved.
It was a peculiar stroke of fata
that brought Mr. Tonduz to town
and thus ended so unexpectedly Mr.
Polet'B search. He was standing de-
sidei an Italian near a tree one day
while a blast was being exploded
when a small stone flow in their direction, piercing the Italian's brtlast
and killing him instantly. Tonduz
decided that that was no place for
him and so he immediately jumped
thc job and headod for town.

BUT IT IS WORTH READING!
We would like to state that we have a Trained
Expert in charge of each Department of our Store.
Mr. Roberts, in charge of our Gents' Furnishings and Dry
Goods, has recently arrived from Vancouver, where he had the
management of one of the largest gents' furnishings stores in
that city.   It is a treat to hear Mr. Roberts talk on his line.
Mr. Williams, in charge of our Shoe Department, came honestly by his profession. His grandfather was a leather merchant
in the old country; his father a large shoe manufacturer. Therefore, an inherent aptitude for Shoes, coupled with a thorough
training, has made him most efficient. If your feet are peculiarly
shaped and hard to fit, Mr. Williams has all the appliances for
stretching and rendering your ohoes most comfortable.
Mr. Harkins, in charge of our Hardware Department, has been
recently imported from Marshall-Wells, the famou3 hardware
house. If you are contemplating building, it is worth your while
to call and have a talk with Mr. Harkins. His suggestions will
certainly be of value to you.
Mr. Campbell, in charge of our Grocery Department, is a
graduate in his line and gives strict attention to every detail.
MR. Smith, who has charge of all the outgoing orders, has already established a reputation for promptness and accuracy and is
too well known for further comment.
