lo establish Mr. Pluyfair's

tercsts. His mission here has
been admirably fulfilled by his

Pluyfair's views of ti.u Hammond townsite are taken with
an eye to effect however. The

valuable addition property.
The Hammond ad-writer
takes the opportunity of embodying into his articles material calculated to discredit the
Campaign conducted by this
paper against the methods resorted to in the sale of the
Fort George townsites. The deluded individual with the confidence inspiring name backs it
up by a statement that out
fight purports to be in the interests of South Fort George.
Of course this is false, for
South Fort George is beside the
issue in the matter, as our figilit
has been directed for the protection of people who are being
induced to purchase misrepresented property on the outside.
As Mr. Playfair used to write
advertisments for thu townsite
concern himself he will readily
grasp the force of this argu-
! ment.

THE ONLY NEWSPAPER rUBLlSHED
IN FORT GEORGE NOT CONTROLLED BY
A TOWNSITE COMPANY.
DURING the period which marks the
existance of even the transitory and
inanimate things that cumber this earth
'here is some period reached which marks
•.he zenith of their usefullness, excellence and
physical aspect, in oth.r words, their perfection. As transitory mat ter, so described,
must reach a period, (he great world dwells
hut lightly upon its position in the scheme
of things and passes by to those of more
lasl.in.' interest.
So it is even with cities, when in the
stage of their inception they hang in the
balance of those powers that may make or
mar their future, that may nuture their
growth, or commit them to the oblivion of
things transient.
So hung the nucleus of this future metropolis since .its inception of three years ago
until this very afternoon, waen the culmination of our confident hopes was realized and the foundation of the future city
of Port George was well and truly laid by
the acquisition of the Indian Reserve by the
Grand Trunk Pacific Railway Company for
townsite purposes.
Corporations   are   without   souls,  minus
lhe bowels of compassion, and out for the
long- green    all of the     time. The     Grand
Trunk   Pacific     Railway Companj   was incorporated for the    purpose of building a
railroad across Canada, and making cupney
for the shareholders. The G. T. P. in British Columbia bisects a stretch of the province, which,   prior to   the knowledge that
such a raiilroad was   to be   built, was the
territory of the Indian hunter, the Hudson
Bay Company, and the man with the gold
pan alona. Then came those who alienated
land, and the timber    man bought up the
forests. Prospectors who had been walking
over coal areas for years staked those lands
for outside capital.    As capital    made inroads upon  the    resources of the country,
bringing to light the latent possibilities of
lhe territory, it became early apparent that
there must rise,    somewhere    in    the wast
region traversed  by the oncoming railroad
a city of great importance.  A distributing
centre and     converging    point     for those
future railroads which  will  ultimately descend  upon the   country from  other directions than the lateral line of the G. T. P..
Port George,'the old Hudson's Hay- post,
situated at the junction of the Fraser and
Nechaco rivers,'.1'   was  immediately    recognised at the naturally strategical location,
and the spot predestined by nature to form
tin' site   for this   great inland city of the
future. It was soon apparent, however, that
(he assurance of development here depended
upon the acquisition of the Indian  Reserve
by the G. T.  P. railroad, for townsite purposes. The history   of the vicissitudes that
have  marked  (he reserve deal  we have set
down in  these columns    as they appeared,
The    townsite   gamblers     meddled    in  lhe
matter,  wild-cat   promoters sought   to in-
. Ilueuce lhe Indians to sell only that portion
which  would    bolster their flim-flam  town-
sites, and  (he lust  of averice was fostered
in   lhe  ranks  of  (he      red   men    by  a  little
Pronch  priest   whose meddling     helped to
compromise ihe deal in several instances.
Put all difficulties have at last been been
smoothed away, and after weeks of waiting
during which strong inside influences were
at work ii Ottawa seeking to overthrow
the pending final negotiations, the deal was
put through. "I find tl.ut the Crown can
secure the surrender of this reserve for one
hundred and twenty five thousand dollars,
Mr. McRae" said Mr Ramsden, after a conference with Chief Loui and the assembled
band, "will your company purchase af thai
 v -nu diuiiiiaie outcome of this deal. To the great investing
public in the world outside, however, the
official announcement meant everything.
The fact lhat the sale had been so long delayed has undoubtedly retarded development   to a,n astonishing degree.
A word of commendation upon the diplomacy, the ability and (he knowledge of
the Indian character displayed by Chief
Indian Commissioner .). G. Ki.msden, who
conducted all negotiations with the Indians
assisted by th' local agent, Mr. McAllan,
another able officer. Mr. Ramsden was able
lo gain the immediate confidence and respect of every Indian on the rancherie, and
in spite of strong influences which sought
in a measure to destroy his aims, lie carried
the whole matter through in a most capable manner.
If Mr.   McRae. the   representative of the
big railroad  company  lhal   will   make our
city, who acted fur them in this transaction
is  a  fair sample of  the officials which   t!,'
advance of the line will bring us into business contact with, then we are well pleased,
and we bid farewell  lo the courteous gentlemen wdio have lived amongst  us for the
past few weeks, hoping that on some future
occasion  we shall  have the opportunity of
entertaining    them  in   a  marble    and gilt

how many publications would be induced to reprint the climb-down article published in the Winnipeg   Post, a promoter's
organ,,,burlesquing    as a     Toronto Saturday Night.   Thu Vancouver World and the
Prince Rupert   Empire   are the   latest. The
World prefaces   the     Hammond    boost by
material calculated  to counteract and  bad
effects thai, the    truthful   publicity of The
Herald may have had upon the Hammond
interests.  We do  not  like the republication
of tike promoter's contrivance which appeared in  ..he  Post, neither   do we admire our
coast contemporaries for accepting  advertising of thut nature., and so we shall give
illustrated proof of all our statements! We
can prove    the Port    George   townsites to
have been misrepresented repeatedly in advertising matter issued by the Natural Resources Security Co. We can prove that the
Indians    were    influenced by   Hammond's
agents, and we can also prove that George
J. Haimmond is an ex-crook, known to the
police! and    able to     operate only     on the
strength" of his bank-roll.

VER on  George      Hammond's  town-
site, where, in October last,    at the
Dominion election,  the whole "Legal registered townsite of Port (leorge" cast exactly
seven votes,    tl.uy have  apparently applied
for and received a charter for their  Hoard
of Trade, covering the   whole Port George
'   Land District.  It would appear about  time
for the local Hoard of Troide to "come out
iil it" and shake itself up, reorganize, anything to get some giiiijj into it, and  let   it
do some more good work. Ue have nothing
against our neighbor's    organization, providing  it   is   not u>if'i{     as a prop for    Mr.
Hammond's promotions, and oven then we
have no kick coming if the promotions will
pay decent   returns to investors. The local
Hoard has    accomplished    a great   deal of
good   in   lhe  pa,;l,    and   we  realize  that   its
real period    of utility has   only just commenced,
To hell with politics.
Ui believe thai Ihe organization of political cliques in a young and ambitious town
s n ss hie eliminated, and
all the organizing energy of the inhabitants
of such places should lean towards tl*. perfection of an organization that is purely local, owing nol Ling to ambitious office holders, but whose endeavors are directed towards (he growth of ils city.
Then follows incorporation, am

A choice variety, in- K
including all the fat. _5
est designs,  can be k
seen by a visit to our f_ Messrs. Hepburn and Gallow-
of Vancouver, owners of the
coal deposits on the Bear river
located by Joseph Wendle, who
have been inspecting the property, passed through town on
thoir wav to \ ancouver this
week.
.Messrs. W. P. Cooke and -)•
Bronger provided a most enjoyable evening's entertainment
in their residence on Second
street last Wednesday evening
at a card party attended by
about forty guests. Tl.- affair
lasted until the small hours of
the morning after.
Several treaigh teams left
here this week to bring in loads
over the sleigli road from Soda
Creek.
Surveyor De.V'olf, accompanied I). Messrs. Livingstone, In-
^lis and Broun have arrived
Irom the held, having closed
their season's work here. They
leave on Monday by stage lor
the south.
An amusing little newslet has
floated down   upon  the bosom
of the mighi.y Fraser from Tete
Jaune Cache.   It concerns two
of the drove of blind-pigs tl,at
persue      their     nuid-wallow.ng
carers     in     the   construction j
camp area,    which  is destitute
of regit,ated licenced Louses for
tie vending of intoxicating liquors.
It appears   that two advent- i
urous spirits left Kamloops for
Tete Jaune, loaded to the gun- j
whales with     a $1200 stock of
booze for the ready, though il- !
ligitimate, market, found where
Dagos and Swedes labor at the
raising of   a railroad j_rade in
fever infested camps at so-much
a day. They came to the Cache
by tne back-door route up thei
Nortii     Thompson    river,   the1
easier to escape detection. When
near Tete    Jaune   Cache t',_y
l.i ild   council   together and decided  to cache the bottled joy
and hie themselves to the centre
of local activity to spy out the
lay of the land. The wind was i
blowing up the little McLennan
river valley as they cached the
cases   away in     a rock crevice
and covered the pile with brush
to hide it   from prying eyes,  .
The wind was    cold and the
boot-leggers were in a hurry to
reach the Cache. They did not
endeavour to hide their tracks,
or to note    whether their actions were   under    observation,
but rushed     tt.3 job   through,
blowing on  their numbed  lingers and drinking deeply fro_n a
bottle   of   their stock-in-trade.
Across   the    little   McLennan
valley Iwo of their ilk watci,_d
and waited.
Their tireless efforts were now
to be rewarded. The cold and
t1"' privations of the long trail
of no account now with so
much remuneration for those
trilling inconveniences at hand,
thought the Kamloops booze-
peddlers as they beheld the
Mecca of the'r hones. They
staggered and groped their way
back along their tracks by
night, prepared to tranship the
cache to a distributing centre
arranged for. only to reach the
■spot and line, lhe cases iron,.,
The sil,.M( waie'vrs had looted
the spot and are now peddling
the dope along the grades,
