SOUTH FORT GEORGE, B. C..~ SATURDAY. OCTOBER 24th. 1914
$3 PER ANNUM
Paris, October 23rd.-Gains made by the Allied Armies
in the vicinty of Metz have brought the Germans to a
serious realization of their danger in that vicinity where
they are menaced not only from Verdun, but also by
splendid success of the Allied Armies and particularly
of the French, on the eastern slope of the Vosges.
Official reports states the Germans are taking the
offensive again along the major part of their front
particularly between the North Sea and the Oise making use of recent newly drilled corps.

W. P. Hinton, assistant passenger traffic manager of the G.

and who was quite recently-
promoted to his present posistion
from general passenger agent,
has again received substantial
recognition of his services for
the G. T. R. and G. T. P. systems. While the promotion
does not carry with it any different title offically, his jurisdiction instead of being confined to
the Grand Trunk Pacific has
been extented to cover the G. P.
system in eastern Canada as well
as the (l.'l.P. His headquarters
will be removed from the Union
Station here to Montreal and he
will leave to assume his increased duties on October 10. W. E.
Duperrow, assistant general passenger agent, will handle the
work done by Mr. Hinton. While
this does not appear as any official promotion, but rather an announcement of increased duties,
it is a tribute to Mr. Hinton's
ability especially in view of the
widening of the scope of power
of this popular railroad official.
William Pittman Hinton was
born at Hintonburg, Ont, now
i&art of Ottawa. His early railroad experience came in the
audit department of the Canada
Atlantic railway, and in 1887 he
became general frieght and passenger agent of the same road.
He entered the Grand Trunk Pacific service at Montreal in 1907
and was appointed general passenger agent 1909 with headquarters in Winnipeg. Last
year further promotion came in
his appointment as assistant general traffice manager and this
last step follows quickly on the
heels of the latter steo upwards.
Mr. Hinton's entire family will
take up their home at Montreal.

Profit In Canadian
Cattle Next Year
Seattle. — Experts w h o h a v e
been studying the meat situation in Canada and the United
States express the opinion that
the Canadian farmers who are
fortuuate enough to have on
hand next spring a lot of well
fed cattle will receive for them
the greatest price in the history
of Canada. The explanation for
this is the partial failure of this
year's corn crop in the United
States and the determination of
the American farmers not to
hold their stock but to feed them
up as fast as possible and rush
them to market in order that
they will not have to carry them
over the winter.
While last year's corn crop
was short the one of two years
ago was heavy and the farmers
had enough feed on hand to help
out in wintering last year's stock
With the American farmers
rushing their stock to market
there can be only one result and
that is a greater scarcity of
cattle in the United States next
spring. While this shortage
will probably work some hard
ship on the American consumer
it is the best thing that has
occurred in the interest of the
Cattle raiser for a good many
months, Information which
comes to the United States from
Canada is to the effect that the
Canadian cattle ra'sers are well
aware of the shortage in the
American corn market and the
consequent promised shortage of
cattle in.the spring, and they
will hold on to their cattle this
winter, feed them well and have
them in prime condition for the
spring trade in the United States.
From present indications the
Canadian raiser who follows out
this policy will reap a small fortune on his stock with the approach of the spring months.
Cafe Car on G. T. P. Between
Prince George and Prince Rupert
The Chambers of Commerce of
South Fort George and Prince
George recently took up the
question of dining car service
with Mr, W. P. Hinton, Assistant Traffic Passenger Manager,
of the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway, which has resulted in a fine
combination cafe and dining car
Le.ng put on the route between Prince George and Prince
Rupert. The Herald is in receipt
of the menu card and it certainly holds up the reputation well
deserved of the (I. T. P. dining
service on trains from. Winnipeg
west. As soon as daily service
can be inaugurated the splendid
full dining car service will be
placed on the entire route
Winnipeg to Prince George and
Prince Rupert,
Mail Service Prince
George to Prince Rupert
The Herald recently called attention to the fact that although train
service had been inaugurated some
time Iietween Prince George and
Prince Rupert the Government had
heen slow to establish mail service
over the line.
At the same time the Prince
George and Soutii Fort George
Chandlers of Commerce communicated with the Post Master General at Ottawa and the Minister of
Agriculture, member from this district, with the result that this week
the first mails to and from Prince
Rui .rt and way points on the line
of the Grand Trunk Pacific were
received and forwarded from the
Post Offices of the greater City.
This will do away with much delay to mails and correspondingly
assist the business interests of the
section. As time goes on the service will lie improved, but for the
present until daily train service is
started the mails will be received
and forwarded twice a week.
Building Activity
Considerable building activity is
noted all over the city for this season of the year, Every day a new
structure of some kind is started.
The new theatre building on Georgo
Street corner of Fifth Avenue under
construction by Mr. Gillette and a
Billiard and Pool Hall on the corner of Fourth Avenue, with numerous buildings both for business
and residence both east and west of
George presents a lively appearance
to the town.
Incorporation Committee Meets
The joint committee on incorporation met Wednesday afternoon in
Prince George, Chairman Perry
having received letters from Attorney General W. J. Bowser and
Mr. Hansard, general counsel for
the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway.
The letter from the Attorney
General dealt with the expenses of
Incorporation, advising that the ex-
1 lense of attorney's fees etc would
be a charge which the city would be
required to assume.
The letter from the Grand Trunk
Pacific Counsel contained request for
more detailed information regarding
what would be expected of the railroad.
Various matters pertaining to Incorporation were discussed by the
committee but no definite plans
adopted.
Baseball Game Sunday
There promises to be an exciting
game of baseball Sunday afternoon
at the Cache hall grounds in wliich
the Prince George aggregation will
meet a l-'ort George and South Fort
(leorge picked team. A collection
for the benefit of the 'War Fund'
will he taken at thc game.
The display of Siver Ware
and full set crockery, given
away free by Campbells is
worth going to see.

I WAR DEVELOPMENTS VERSUS
LOCAL DEVELOPMENTS
As all our readers know the news from the seat of war
is vague, uncertain, and not to be relied upon. The leaders of the Allied Armies will not permit " talking " about
what they are doing, and all news is rigidly censored.
We might follow the lead of other newspapers and print
| at length a rehash, and speculate on the results of the
present contest, but all this would be of no benefit to our
i readers.
There are enough subjects of interest in our own country
! vital to us all, to fill our columns, without repeating news
.'already amply covered by 'words' and then more 'words.'
_y\   The settlement of our country, its opening up to Agri-
-* culture, the developing of its mineral wealth, its immense
'timber and pulp areas, all require attention and then more
. attention.
Too little has been said on these matters.   Our cities j
'and towns wait on these developments for their growth. |l
We may discuss incorporation to the limit; Wrangle over!
Water Systems and Fire Protection, and taxes, and satis-
factory arrangements with a railroad, but without development of the surrounding country it will avail nothing.
We sra engaged with Patriotic Funds and other modest
of raising money for this, that, and the other thing, all of
which is to take money out of the country.
The Herald would like to ask the sober industrious think, j
ing people of this district if it is not time to consider the!
old adage that " Charity begins at home." Has not money
in sufficient volume gone out of this country already this \
year.
Is it not time to consider how we are to get through the!
winter ourselves.   It is conceded that business the wide;
world over is and will be lean for a number of months yet. j
There is not in this country sufficient development either'
j in agricultural or industrial pursuits to create a large pay'
jroll and in consequence a revenue to come into the district.
: Almost everything we eat and wear has to be bought on
! the outside as yet, and there is no great spring of resources
1 in this new country to create the flow of money to us to
take the place of the funds that must be sent out to the
centres of commerce in payment of our means of living.
It is therefore time to conserve our resources.   For this
purpose the Herald sounds this note of warning.   Let the
; districts that have grown good crops, that have large industries and extensive payrolls, take the burden of the
war funds.   If we are not careful we will have a burden
of starvation to carry.   Already the pinch is felt and
; winter has not started.   Money is going out of the country
that should pay for necessities right here at home.
_     In writing this the Herald is not pessimistic nor of a
— I mean and penurious disposition.   But there is common
sense and reason in all things.   It is a wise man and a
wise city that stops to consider and not allow hard headed
business sense to be carried away with sympathy and
empty attempts to do things because the other fellow is
doing it, when that doing is to cripple himself and his
neighbor.
This is a young and growingcentre, started amidst com-
plexing and trying conditions, that have loaded our people
to the hilt with obligations under which they are struggling
heroically. The Government and the Banks have not
helped much in relieving the situation. This is not as yet
a rich community, then why make it less rich by trying to
shoulder burdens that belong to older and richer cities.
We believe in the war funds, in the people at home helping those at the front by providing everything necessary,
but let each district consider well what it can best afford
to do.
Let us turn our minds for a time away from the subject
of war, and discuss ways and means to develop our country
and make it a fit place to which to invite the distressed of
the countries devastated by the fiendish war now going on,
for there will be hundreds of thousands of them flocking
to us after it is all over for a new home, a new start in
life, and we must have a place and resources at that time
to. care for them. That is our duty, our greatest duty, at
this time.
I This is the most wonderful country in the wide world to
j bring the people to, to begin life over again. All it wants
'is the people and development. And to tell the people
what we have should be our daily burden. The Herald
solicits every item of such interest from its readers A
public expression and display of our resources is more and
more needed at this time.

strength of its reports from all over
the continent :
The abnormal business conditions created hy the war, continue

halt enterprise, yet there is a signifi-
cant growth of confidence. Several
factors contribute to this situation.
Undoubtedly (lie improvement in
the financial markets is slow, but
t is steady. Another factor is the
active export movement of grain,
which has a two-fold effect, as it
aids greatly in restoring more normal
conditions in international exchange
and contributes mightily to the prosperity of the West hy ensuring high
prices for the large crops that have
heen raised in tbatsection. Because
of this the- West is doing better than
the East, the latter naturally being
more closely affected by the suspension of the security markets, the
check lo imports and the dullness
wliich prevails in the iron and copper trades. On the whole, the
iiiovcineni of seasonable commodities
is larger than might reasonably be
expected, considering prevailing conditions, and the situation is really
better than statistics of reduced bank
clearings and railroad earnings indicate."

Given successful fire protec-

Columbia as is already felt in
Eastern Canada.
The first step in successful fire
protection is the burning of slash
after logging operations. The
burning of the slash provides a

be easily relieved if land settlement were on a proper basis.
Sooner or later we must realize
that the land question is of paramount importance to the whole
of this province. Land must be
cleared for settlement in such a
way that it is done cheaply
and effectively so that those who
clear the land can be credited
with it. Land clearing is the
best form of relief for unemployment and by paying those who
clear the land not only a small
wage but with a portion of the
land in lieu of high wages, an
efficient basis for revolutionizing
conditions in this province would
be coustructed, This case is one
among thousands, and it can be
solved.   It cannot be solved by
Mr. James Oliver Curwood, a
novelist, is making a study of Canadian conditions in war time. He
has just completed a tour of the
western provinces, and declares
that the end of the war will usher in a period of development
and growth that will mean practically a new Canada in the West.
"It may seem like a paradox
when I say that with every life
and every dollar that is being destroyed in Europe, Canada's pos-
sibilites increase, yet it is so,"
he observed. "Of all the nations
of the earth Canada will profit
more by this war than any other
—more even than my own country across the border. In fact
from every way I look at the
situation the sky ahead looks
brighter for Canada than at any
other time in its history."
The first three cars of real
fresh fish went out of Prince
Rupert Sept. 30th by the G. T. P.
Each car consisted of 100 boxes
of halibut packed in ice. The
boxes contained 200 pounds of
fish, so that each car carried
20,000 pounds.
On the sides of the cars were
large painted signs bearing the
following words: "To F. T.
James & Co., Toronto, from
Canadian Fish and Cold Storage
Company. Shipped from Prince
Rupert, B. C, over the G. T. P.
Railway, September 30. 1914."
This is just the beginning of a
big trade for Prince Rupert to
which there is no limit. The
placards will be a good advertise
ment for Rupert.

For Labors in Ihe World's Series
Because of the shortness of the
world's series the club owners
and national commission divide
a smaller sum than in tire world's
series since. 1910. The attendance at the last game was
34,363, and the receipts $62,653.
Of this sum the players
received $33,832.62; the club
owners $22,555.08, and the
National Commission $6625.30.
Total attendance for the series
was 111,000; receipts, $225,739;
player's share, $121,900.94; each
:lub's share, 540,632 58, and the
National Commission's proportion $22,573. As the winners
the Boston players receive 60
percent, of $121,900.94, or $73.-
140.56, while the Athletics, as
losers, profit to the amount of
$48,790.38.
The American League victories and the clubs that won them
are as follows: 1906, Chicago;
1910, Philadelphia; 1911, Philadelphia; 1912, Boston; 1913, Philadelphia.
The National League triumphs
were won: 1905, New York;
1908, Chicago; 1909, Pittsburg;
1913, Boston.
This year Boston established a
new world's series record
by winning in succession
the four games necessary to
clinch the title. Not since the
National Commission assumed
charge of these annual inter-
league contests in 1905 has this
feature been achieved before.

Many people now living in
I British Columbia will remember
that wherever cutting operations
were carried on in the timbered
estates of Great Britain or on
the continent it was necessary
to immediately plant trees to fill
the gaps. This precaution is
still followed throughout the
private and state forests of Great
Britain and Europe. No blank
areas are allowed to exist; all
cut over areas are planted or
seeded with forest trees within
a few months. The cost of
planting or seeding, which
reaches three or four dollars an
acre, is repaid with interest on
the investment and rent on the
value of the land, from the proceeds of the timber when cut,
Persons aware of this European
practice frequently remark that
there should be some system of
reforestation in British Columbia
in order that the public may
have some guarantee that the
cutting of our present forests
will be followed by preparations
for a new crop. Fortunately
the climatic conditions in British
Columbia are such that naturn
looks after the reforestation,

Remarkable tales of novel engines of war are appearing in all
parts of Europe, but nothing has
yet equaled the reports circulated concerning new guns used by
the French in firing turpinite, a
substance said to produce instantaneous and painless death for
every living thing within its
reach.
Although it is so deadly in its
work, turpinite cannot be objected to on the ground that it
violates humane principles of
war. In fact, it is so humane
that it must not be confused with
lyddite and other explosives
which have deadly fumes.
English correspondents have
reported that entire lines of (lerman soldiers stood dead in their
trenches as a result of the fumes
from the mysterious turpinite
discharged by the French in engagements along the Marne. The
dead Hermans are reported to
have maintained a standing
posture and retained their rifles
in their hands, so sudden and
unusual was the effect of the new
weapon. Instantaneous paralysis is said to have been caused by
turpinite.
TheFrench gun used is shrouded in mystery, as is turpinite
itself.
Northern B. C. Agricultural And
Industrial Association Fair

The Northern B. C. Fair just
closed was a distinct success
considering all the opposing
forces. The quality and variety
of the products shown are convincing that not only can fruits
and vegetables be successfully
grown in B. O, but land itself
which can turn out such a high
standard of crops is worth going
after.
The man who waits for something
good to drop on him will be a disappointed and disgruntled citizen.

Grand Trunk Pacilic Development
Work
That was good news announced by President Chamberlain of
the Grand Trunk Pacific railway
at Winnipeg the other day. It
is the intention of the company
to build one of the largest dry
docks in this country at Prince
Rupert at which a 20,000 ton
battleship can be docked. Work
will be started January 1 and
will give employment to thousands of unemployed men. This
means a great deal for British
Columbia. Let the good work
goon.
