FOR EXTENSION OF
P.OiJO ALASKA
Premier McBride to Visit Washington Seeking Co-operation
of American Government.
Sir Richard McBride will seek the
co-operation of the United States
government in a project ior extending the Pacific Great Eastern rall-
way by main and branch lines
through Alaskan territory, tapping
tlic principal mining camps. It is
proposed to extend the line trom
Fort George through the undeveloped
regions of Northern British Columbia and Yukon territory, and incidentally provide Alaska with transportation facilities. His visit to
Washington, where he will interview
President Wilson and members oi thc
cabinet, will take place ln April following the delivery of the annual address to the students of the University of California on March 22.—
Public men who have been similar;
honored by the university in recent
years include ex-President Taft and
Hon. William Jennings Bryan, secretary of State in the Wilson cabinet.
It is understood that the co-operation of the Dominion government
will be sought, and it is not unlikely that the premier may visit Ottawa before returning home. The precise route will not be determined until preliminary surveys have been
made and the attitude of tbe United
States authorities as regards the
Alaskan portion of the line has been
ascertained.
Prince George Townsite
Will be Cleared Shortly
Active preparations are to be made shortly for the development and sale of Prince George townsite, on the Indian Reservation here. Contractor McDonald, of Foley Welch and
Stewart's outfit, will arrive here shortly and will commence
the work of clearing the whole site, except the park areas.
G. U. Ryley, Land Commissioner for the Grand Trunk Pacific
railway company, stated in Vancouver a short time ago that
the Prince George townsite would probably be on the market
during the year,
The'slough which runs into the low land north of the station
and the trackage sites is being completely cut off by the dock
cribbings'which are now being put in by the contractors whom
are building the Foley, Welch and Stewart docks. All the low
land lying north of the station yards will be utilized for the
purposes of the railway company's large shops and works.
The station'location is about one third of the distance across
the tangent line from the Fraser river. From the station
Edson^Street and Queen Street give out to the main thoroughfares which^end in the civic centre, which is located about one
third of the distance across the reserve from the eastern boundary.
In our issue'of April 12th*we will publish an authentic plan
showing'the developmentjscheme for the Prince George townsite.
ST. STEPHEN'S CHURCH
On Easter Day all the seating accomodation was taken at evensong,
at St. Stephen's Church. The church
wore decidedly a festal appearance
and was decorated with spruce
boughs. The service was hearty and
bright and all the hymns were well-
known Ranter ones. Miss. McArthur
played the organ.
The vicar, (Rev. R. H. Isacc Williams, M, A.) delivered1 his Easter
message from the text "0 yo o!
little faith, do ye not remember how
that He said that He would rise
again on the third day? He is not
here but risen."
The children presented theur Lent-
ern savings tor Canadian missions,
and the collection which amounted
to $10 was given as an eastern offering to the vicar.
The annual Easter Vestry Meeting
will be held on Monday at 8 p.m.
BARKERVILLE REPORTS
RICH GOLD STRIKE
Barkerville, March 22.-A rich strike
°f gold has been made during the last
two weeks on Conklin's Gulch, one
mile north-east of Barkerville, by Robt.
Buchanan, John Bell, L. D. Muller and
Martin Schilling, four well-known local
mining man, paydirt having been struck
running from 4 ozs., $72, to6ozs., $108,
to the Bet.
These men have been working all
winter on their claims, sinking a shaft
» depth of forty-five feet to the bedrock, end running tunnels in different
directions to locate the old channel
where the pay dirt lies.
Owing to the slow and laborious
method employed at the present time
of handling the dirt, by means of
running it out to the foot of the shaft
by a hand car and then hoisting jt to
the top with a two-man windlass, the
actual value of the ground cannot be
determined, but indications and tests
made prove that they are in a rich spot
of the channel, and when the claim is
opened out the yield of gold will' rival
the output of the famous Erickson
Company on the same creek during the
early days.
All the old time miners state that the
best part of the ground in Conklin's
Gulch
was never worked, owing to the
miners being unable to contend with
we enormous bodies of slum surround-
"■e channel; but with the establishment of a modern hydraulicking plant
tms difficulty will not have to be contended with.
There will be a big building activ-
'*v "ere after the open-season tor
steamboats comes in,
Leo Sullivan and J. K. Henry, mem
bers of last season's baseball team arrived in town this week from the
camps up river. Both will be on the
local nine this year. Mr Henry has accepted a, position with the Northern
Lumber and Mercantile Co., and
"Sully" will be on Engineer Gill's .staff.
Jack Flynn drove. Contractor Hardie
to Stoney Creek this week, returning
on Toursday.
The steamer Quesnel is being pre
pared for the. water and the opening of
navigation. Engineer Rankin, who arrived here on the last stage, and Mate
Hamilton are in charge of affairs,
The sawmill of the Nortern Lumber
and Mercantile company commenced
the season's cut early this week. Mr.
Peden informs The Herald thst over
two million feet of logs are now at the
mill.
The sale of lumer has been exceedingly brisk during the past few weeks,
so the lumber merchants say. Besides
the material going into local building
the railway contractors are using considerable in the erection of camps, etc.
Contractor Carleton has several four-
horse teams hauling lumber to the nearby tamps. ;
Harry Smith, who runs road house
21 miles south of here on the main road
to the south, writes asking The Herald
to announce that he is importing a registered Clidedale stallion, from the Do-
ugbar Lake stock, of the Nicola Valley.
Mr. Smith wil! travel the animal thro-
ught the distriet.
The Northern Interior Amusement
Company LtdM are making preparations
for the moving of the Fort George
Theatre. The company will locate the
theatre near the Hotel Northern.
Owing to the necessity ot inserting
a large volume of land advertising
in this issue we regret that its appearance was somewhat delayed. We
need the money.
Do not .fail to attend the Sheet
and Pillowslip dance to be held in
the Fort George Theatre on Tusday
evening under the auspices ot the
Hockey Club.
There will be a meeting ot the
South Fort Qeorge Conservative Association every Friday evening in the'
Fire Hall at 8 -p. m.
The Herald, is going to issue a
special edition—Straight!
The city of Prince Rupert has accepted the offer of Messrs. Terry, Briggs
and Slater, of Toledo, Ohio, for a block
of four year debentures, the. offer
being 97 cents for the issue, and accrued interest from the date of the last
undipped interest coupon to the date of
the delivery.
There are two sets of debentures,
one being for $19,600 and the other for
$70,991.66, and both are for local'jm-
provements. -
The recommendation of the finance
committee that the offer be accepted,
was daopted by the council.
A peculiar situation has arisen at
Fitzhugh. The town is growing, owing
to the fact that a considerable number
of Grand Trunk employees are located
there, this being a divisional point.
The people are living in shacks like
squatters, and stores have also to be
conducted in shacks. Fit zhugh is in the
National Park, and the lands belong to
the crown. The Dominion government
has had a plan of a Fitzhugh subdivi
sion prepared for some time, but has
not yetjrot any property on the market,
A vigorous denunciation of the admission into British Columbia as permanent settlers of Chinese, Japanese
and Hindus has just been issued by
Rev. Dr. McKay, of the Presbyterian
foreign mission board. In his statement Dr. McKay says that it was a
mistake to admit the Hindus at all, for
at present they are quite incapable of
self-government, and to them Canadian
citizenship has no meaning. He further states that those who are here
should be allowed a reasonable time to
return home, and that no further immigration should be tolerated. These
regulations should apply to all oriental
laborers now here, and no others should
te admitted.
James Seymour, blacksmith, and a
well-known old-timer of Quesnel, was
found dead in his cabin at the Junction
of the Swift and Cottonwood rivers recently, where he had been running a
trap line this winter. Seymour usually
spent the winters trapping. During
the winter of 1911-12 he had, while
alone, a very severe attack of rheumatism of the heart, and would have
perished had he not been discovered by
some timber cruisers, who brought him
to the hospital. Mindful of that experience, Seymour made arrangements
to trap with a companion this winter,
but they separated shortly after starting out, and he was alone at the time
of his death. Thero were no indications whatever of foul play when the
remains were found.
T. A. Blair, of Kennedy Blair &
Co., has taken a lease on a store on
Third street and will open for business there in May. He is discontinuing his. mercantile operations in historic Barkerville.

NO CAI1SET0 "KICK'
Laborers Have Little Cause for
Complaint.—Says Fair
Wage Officers.
Complying with a request from the
royal consul for Italy in Canada,
that an investigation be called regarding the way his fellow countrymen were being treated on the Foley, Welch and Stewart construction
work between this point and Tete
Jaune, the department of labor instructed its Fair Wage Officer at
Vancouver, J. D. McNiven, on December 16th. last to make a report on
the subject. Mr. McNiven passed
through town three weeks ago, and
his official report was tabled at Ot-
rawa on the eighteenth instant.
The officer's report states that the
men are being treated fairly and are
paid an average wage of 13 a day.
Ot this they have to pay $1 a day
for board. In taking up the complaint about charges for transport-
1 ation and employment business the
officer states that the allegations
made by the complaining laborers
were absolutely false. The contractors did not charge employment fee.
They deduct, however, the railway
fare from the man's wageB, but if a
man remained with them for more
than six months this was refunded
to him. This was done simply to
protect the contractors from "job
jumpers". The only complaint he sustained was that the contractors paid
their men by check. When the men
Btarted out to civilization they had
to ask individuals to cash their time
checks at a discount ot ten per cent.
The department wrote to the contractors regarding the subject and
they replied that it was impossible
for them to keep enough money on
hand to pay their wages in currency.
They did, however, cash small checks
for the out-going men, and had an
arrangement with the G. T. P. whereby that company took checks in payment for tickets.
The minister oi labor communicated on December 16th. with Sir
Lomer Gouin regarding the operation
ot employment agencies ln this province, and more particulary the Northern Employment agency in Montreal. This agency charged trom $6
to $10 fees and had mulcted $10,000
from the laborers last tall.
The department has sent 5,000
forms for names and addresses of the
laborers on the Foley, Welch and
Stewart contract. These forms are
to be filled in and in case ot sickness
or death are to he sent to the department so that they can communicate with the man's relatives. Thie
is in compliance with the regulation
passed last summer.
WY W. Foster, deputy minister of
public works, announces that the provincial government will despatch a survey party this summer to locate a trail
or wagon road connecting Bute Inlet
with the Chilcoten district. The route
is a rough one and is occasionally traversed by Indians. The distance from
salt water to the summit of the coast
range is about thirty-five miles long
and is very steep. The proposed facilities will enable people to get into the
Upper Chilcoten country three days
after leaving Vancouver. At present
the same place can only be reached by
a fortnight's round about trip via the
upper Fraser via Clinton. The action
of the Government is due to the representations of prospectors who claim
that there are rich mineral belts in the
east slope of the coast range.
DEVELOPMENT OPERATIONS AT THE WILLOW
Additions to Sub-divide Area are to be Layed Out.—Development Planned by Towiisite Company.
Things are commencing to move at
Willow river. The Pacific Land and
Townsites Company, owners oi the
Willow river townsite on the Fraser
River at the mouth ot the river trom
which it derives its name, have purchased District Lot 712, which Is the
property lying between their town-
site and'that, ot the Grand Trunk
Pacific site of the same name. This
gives the Pacific Land and townsites
Co., a good strategic position in the
Willow river- townsite situation.
Gore and McGregor, tbe well known
Victoria land surveyors, will be on
the ground to subdivide the north
halt ot the purchased property by
tbe fifteenth of the month.
From all accounts there will be
considerable development work at the
Willow River townsites this spring.
Mr. F.' W. -Crawford, local agent for
the Transcontinental Townsites Company, Informs us that the Grand
Trunk Pacific site will be actively developed. Plans will soon be sent forward, and the erection of a hotel, to
be a duplicate of the well designed
"Empress" ot this town, will be commenced on their townsite.
SEEKING ALIOI IN
DEFENSEJF INDIANS
Witnesses Swear AccusediWere
in Nicola Valley at Time of
Constable's Murder.
miles trom
in December
At the preliminary hearing before
Stipendiary Magistrate Pearse, held
in-Kamloops on March 12th., a sensation was offered when several Indian witnesses swore that the prisoners Paul and Spintlam, were at Potato Illahee, seventeen
Spencer's Bridge, early
last.
Before the examination began most
of the morning was spent ln adjusting the complication caused by appointing council tor the defense.
Last January Stewart Henderson
was retained by the prisoners and
they promised when tbey surrendered
to pay council for their defense, and
instructed Indian Agent Smith at
Kamloops that they would pay tor
their defense it the council ot A. D.
Taylor, K. C, were retained, but
not otherwise. The Indians, knowing
Henderson, decided to have him, and
Mr. Taylor, therefore, withdrew.
Dr. Stuart A. Ross, the first witness, described the course ot the
bullet, which entered trom tbe front
and passed out of the back, causing
death.
Charles Truran was hunting horses
on May 3 and found Spltlam and
Paul in camp. They made for their
rifles. Spitlam Went behind, with his
rifle all ready. Truran got away and
secdred several men for a .posse. He
took them to the Indians' camp. The
posse consisted of Constables Kindness, Forest Loring, William Ritchie
Charlie Pollard, Johnny Pollard,
James Boyd, George Carson and
himself.
The posse rode up to the two Indian horses. A shot waa fired trom
the left and Kindness said, "Oh, you
beggars," and tell. Three or four
shots came from behind a log. Forest Loring heard the bullet hit Kindness, but was trying to locate the
direction when he waa shot in the
arm. No shots were fired by the
posse till he was shot. He ran ahead
With his revolver and saw an Indian
two hundred yards away running. He
came back tor his rifle, but the Indian had disappeared. The Indian he
saw was about the size and build ot
Spintlam. James B. Boyd, the only
witness who identified either ot the
prisoners, minutely described tracking them from the camp to the killing. One wore number 8 boots and
one number 6 moccasins. Two rode
shod horses but two or three were
barefooted.
"I saw a cap and about a toot ot
rifle barrel over the log," he said.
A man rose up and I recognized him
as Spintlam. At the same instant he
turned and ran."
Boyd knew Spintlam by his peculiar grinning expression. Boyd went
over to the log and found one 33:30
and one 32 special cartridge shell.
W. G. Carson, William Ritchie and
John Pollard saw a man behind a
log. James Robertson, store clerk at
Clinton, sent forty rounds of 32
special ammunition to Spintlam in
August 1911.
Major Churchill, chief ot tha Leon
creek tribe, through interpreter, said
he saw the prisoners in Potato Illahee, Nicola Valley, last December.
He identified the revolver holster
carried by Spintlam ad a cartridge
belt carrying 44-calibre cartridges.
Joseph Moses, chief ot thn High
Bar tribe, saw the prisoners ln Nicola Valley, and identified the revolver and cartridge belt and 44 carbine
carried by Spintlam, also a 44 rifle
carried by Paul.
There has been a scramble all over
the province to secure pre-emptions
before the new regulations come into
effect on April tbe first. Although,
under the amendments to the Land
Act, pre-emptors in future will not
have to pay anything for their land,
the added duties and the extended
time in which title may be obtained
will outweigh the financial gain.

QN another page appears an article taken from the columns of
one of Canada's leading weekly journals, "Toronto Saturday
Night," dealing with the townsite situation here, and the denou-
ment which is daily becoming more plainly applicable to the
merits of enormous blocks of 25-foot lots sold by the Natural Resources Security Company, Ltd., of Vancouver, of which our old
friend, George John Hammond, is still, and alvyays will be, until
that company goes the way of all mundane things, the presiding
genius.
Toronto Saturday Night is not quite up-to-the-minute in this
review, for it must be remembered that the actual existing development scheme for the future G. T. P. townsite of Prince
George has already been accurately forecasted in these columns,
but their writer's summing up of the situation is not far from the
mark in any particular.
We do not need to remark upon the attitude this paper has
always assumed toward the flotation of these huge "background"
subdivisions. We condemned them; we warned the public, and
we fought the giant organization behind them and the giant organization's bankroll until, through lack of funds, we could fight
no longer. No other paper has ever carried a campaign so far as
we have carried ours to try and justify our action, and although
we failed in the assize court and were branded as a libelous paper,
WE ARE AS SURE TO BE VINDICATED BY FUTURE EVENTS, NOW
CASTING THEIR SHADOWS BEFORE, AS NIGHT SHALL FOLLOW THE
DAY.
We do not follow this subject along upon every reasonable pretext through any sense of retaliation for our vaunted wrongs,
neither, by the same token, has the iron entered into our journalistic soul; but having fought and having suffered in part, we
intend to uphold our contentions in order that their realization
may not be lost in the rapid march of events here during the
next two years.
We venture to say that there is not another paper in the west
that will reprint the article from Toronto Saturday Night other
than The Herald. The townsite concern referred to is one of the
heaviest advertising companies in Canada. They are about to
launch a big campaign for the flotation of subdivisions at Hazelton. The hungry organs of the coast cities, growing fat on this
class of advertising, are willing ever to boost such flotations for
these lords of the real estate game as long as the big advertising
contracts continue to Le received.
There are papers such as the Winnipeg Saturday Post, the
Victoria Week and the Vancouver Saturday Sunset which have
placed themselves on record in their stand upon this Fort George
controversy in specific, unqualified statements. These papers
have supported the cause of the promoters to the limit of their
ability. The time is not far distant when their recorded viewpoint of this townsite situation will be disinterred, and Hay Stead,
W. Blakemore and John P. McConnell, the boosters of the town-
site promoters, will squirm under the reaction from their prostituted journalism,
Toronto Saturday Night, on the other hand, has fought the
townsites of the Vancouver realty concern since its inception.
A libel suit was once launched by the presiding genius before referred to, against the Toronto paper, but it never came to trial.
Newspapers play an important part in the development of the
west at long range. Owing to the fact that a vast portion of the
townsite lands offered to the public from British Columbia are
bought at a great distance upon the record of prosperity enjoyed
by this province, and the general assurance of a continuance of
this congenial state of provincial well-being. The distant public
"bite" at well-advertised flotations almost indiscriminately. The
press, upon which they must largely rely for reliable information
as to real values and prospects, is hopelessly gagged, and its usefulness in the circumstances rendered inoperative by lavish expenditures in the same advertising that renders these operations
possible. In many instances the newspapers are used as decoys,
and brazenly lie and subjugate inviolable principles which should
govern their policies to the lure of the promoter's bankroll.
'Canada    baa a heritage   of one^to take on such an expedition. The
first requisite, according to the
speaker, is tobacco, the second onions and the third more onions. Another absolute necessity is an arsenal, both to use for game and in
self-defense. Dr. Vrooman humorously
likened the gun to the small boy's
definition of a lie—"an abomination
unto the Lord and a very present
help In time ot trouble.."
The three thousand mlles of looping the loop began at Dunvegan.
Here the party, on a clear day could
see the sources of tbe Columbia, ths
Praser, the Parsnip, the Yukon, the
Mackenzie and the Saskatchewan
rivers. But provisions were getting
low. Here, the party had hoped to
replenish their larder, which had
become sadly depleted during their
forest wanderings, but only five
pounds of bacon and a fifty pound
sack of flour were procurable.
Consequently Dr. Vrooman, with
four others and seven horses, embarked on a rudely constructed raft
down Peace river, whilst the rest of
the party turned back on the same
trail.
At Findlay Rapids the raft hung
up on a rock and another was con-
hundred million acres of arable land
in the vicinity of the Peace river,
more land than was used for wheat
over all the world in 1910" was the
statement made by Dr. F. B. Vrooman in his address to the Woman's
Canadian club luncheon in Pender
HaU, Vancouver, the other day. This
land is waiting for the immigrants
whieh wUl inevitably come and Dr.
Vrooman urged necessity of framing
an intelligent governmental policy of
immigration. "We must fill the land
with lndlstrious law-abiding people,"
he declared.
Dr. Vrooman, who made the three
thousand mile trip trom Edmonton
into the Rockies and down the Peace
river on a raft three years ago, carried his hearers through the awful
vastness ot the forests, down the
surging rapids of the rivers and into
Indian huts and trading posts, portraying ln an intensely interesting
manner tbe story of his unique journey.
In beginning his address of startling adventures, intermixed with amusing reminiscences and vivid pictures of striking mountain scenery,
Dr. Vrooman discussed the essentials

40 feet; the second, about 100 yards
further down, drops about 10 feet;
while the third, and lowest one, has
a perpendicular drop of nearly 100
feet. The country through which Long
River flows is very rough, broken and
stony.
About sii miles from Fort McLeod
miles below the mouth of the Pack
the Nation River enters the Parsnip
from the west, a large stream of
clear water about forty miles in
length from its source, in the Nation
LakeB, to the Parsnip.
I ascended this river for about fifteen miles, passing through two rock
canyons and numerous rapids. The
country traversed by the Nation
River for its entire length is very
rough and broken, and, with the exr
ception of a few small flats along the
river, is quite valueless. There are
numerous indications of, coal along
tfe Nation River.
Returning again to the Parsnip, I
found the country on both sides of
the rivcr very rough and broken. On
the weBt side of the river, below the
mouth of the Nation, a range of hills
very rough, and heavily timbered
with spruce and birch, extends down
the Parsnip near the river for a distance of about sixteen mileB; these
hills rise to a height of about 700
to 800 feet.
On tUe western side of this range
of hills there is a wide valley extending to the main range, forming
the western boundary of the Parsnip
and "Findlay valleys. This valley appears to be rough and heavily timbered, except for a large wet swamp,
about ten to twelve miles in length
and from one to two miles in width,
which commences at a small lake
about one mile and a half north of
the Nation River, and follows the
course of a stream which runs from
this lake into the Parsnip, which it
enters about seventeen miles below
the mouth of the Nation.
From the mouth of this stream
northerly to the Omineca River lies
a very large stretch of generally
level rolling country, timbered light-
FORT FRASER, Central British Columbia, has the ideal
townsite location on the entire line of the Grand Trunk l^wss
Pacific Railway in British Columbia.      :      :      :      :
It has also many natural resources and advantages not possessed by other townsites.
It has a sparkling lake of fifty square miles of fresh water.    Tremendous hydro-electric,
power being developed at its very door.    The largest tract of agricultural land to be found
in British Columbia.   A healthful and ideal climate both summer and winter.   One thousand .
miles of navigable waters reach to and from Fort Fraser.
These Are Advantages Which Cannot be Taken Away
Again, it is a natural distributing centre for a vast territory, and with the incoming of the
Grand Trunk Pacific, Pacific & Hudson Bay Railway and other contemplated lines, its future
as one of the coming cities of Western Canada is assured,
FORT   FRASER
is already a good lively town with Government office, telegraph office, postoffice and various
lines of trade already established there.

TYPICAL BOTTOM LAND SCENE IN THE PEACE AND ITS TRIBUTARIES.
the trail descends sharply to a large
flat, extending to the shore of McLeod Lake. The soil on this flat is
very poor and stony, and is thickly
covered with a growth of small pine.
On reaching Fort McLeod I obtained
canoes and Indians and proceeded
down the Pack River.
This river, at low water contains
little more than enough water to
take a loaded canoe over the rapids,
which are numerous. About six miles
from its outlet from McLeod Lake
the Pack River runs through a small
lake, about three miles long by one
and a half miles wide, and about
seven miles below this point it enters the Parsnip, at an elevation of
about 2,170 feet. There are small
flats of good land along the Pack
River, hut the country traversed by
it is very rough and hilly, and the
amount of land suitable for agriculture is very small.
On reaching the Parsnip River, I
found the water very high and muddy.
Above the mouth of the Pack a wide
flat, slightly rolling and timbered
lightly with pine, spruce, and poplar
"tends for from six to eight miles
to the foot-hills of the Rocky Mountains.
The low flat along the river has an
average width of about one mile between benches, about i50 feet high,
the river widening from side to side
between these benches. The river Is
broken up by numerous sloughs and
islands; these islands, and the low
river-flat being generally covered
w*th a heavy growth of spruce and
cottonwood, the benches being more
liKhtly timbered.
A large portion of this country
has been swept by fire. The east side
n' the Parsnip, between the Pack and
Nation Rivers, is ve\-y rough and
broken, and, except for the river
bottom and a few small benches, Is
■"•fit for    agriculture.   Ahout forty
ly with spruce, pine, poplar and
birch. This tract is bounded on the
east by the Parsnip and Findlay
Rivers, and on the west by a high
ranje of snow mountains, and is
about fifteen miles ln average width.
The soil is chiefly a light sandy
loam. f
On the east Bide of the Parsnip,
below the mouth ot the Nation River
a range of low hills, not so rough as
those on the west side, follows the
river as far as its junction with the
Findlay. Between this, range and the
also found, but are fewer, and at the
mouth of the small streams entering
the main river large Dolly Varden
trout can be caught some of which
will weigh nearly 10 tb. Beaver are
numerous in tbe swamps and smaller
streams. ,
The Parsnip has an average fall of i
about 2 feet to the mile, the elevat-'
ion at its junction  with the Findlay being about 2,000 feet. On reaching this point, I ascended the Findlay River, camping the first night at
Pete Toy's Bar, which is very rich
in a fine.flour gold, probably brought
down by the    Omineca River. Near
the mouth of the river on the east
side Is a large    flat of good land,
containing about    5,000 acres, consisting ot heavy clay loam and sandy
loam, and timbered with spruce, pine
and popular, partly burnt.
On the west side   is a large flat,
already referred to, extending to the
Omineca River, which enters the Findlay   from  the   west, about eleven
miles from  its mouth..   About five
miles   in a straight   Une   from its
mouth the Findlay approaches dose
to the foot-hills of the Rocky Mountains, on the eaBt side of the vc.Uf.y,
and continues close to these mountains as-far as the mouth of tho Aspics River,   which enters from the
east about a mile above the mouth
of the Omineca. I ascended both of
these rivers    for   a short!   distance
on my way down. For a distance of
twelve miles * from the    mouth the
Findlay is very wide and broken up
with islands and sandbars, but above
the mouth of the Asplca lt is ron-
fined    to    one * channel   for   about
twenty miles, and is nearly straight,
benches varying in height from 100
to 350 feet following the course of
river, leaving a low river-flat averag-

ing about half a mile in width. The
valley is about six miles in width,
generally flat from the top of the
bench to the mountains on both
sides, timbered with pine, spruce, and
poplar, and the land Is good.
All this part of the valley has been
swept by fire. About twenty miles
above the mouth of the Asplca the
benches become lower, the upper one
being about 150 feet in height, and
they He farther from the river, the
low flat from this point for eight
miles up being    from one    to two
miles in width.
Above this point the river widens
and is full of. bars and islands, having ln places an extreme width between sloughs of over a mile. These
islands, and also the low flat along
the river, are heavily timbered with
spruce and cottonwood, the soil being
a heavy black and clay loam. On the
western sule of the Findlay, as far
as the mouth.of Ruby Greek, at a
distance of    about fifty miles from
its mouth the land is rough, the
bench rising from the river to a
height of 100 to 200 feet. Tbis bench
has an average width of about two
miles. Between the mouth of Ruby
Creek and the mouth of the Ingen-
lka, a distance of about thirty
five miles, there is very little land
of any valuo on tho west side of'the
river.

Toronto Saturday Night's Review of the Townsite Situation
Here Bears Out The Herald's Three-Year Campaign
(Toronto Saturday Night.)
Judging from the news items which are now coming out of the
the West it would seem that there is great consternation among
1 ose who for the past three years have been buying lots on the
F rt George subdivisions floated by the Natural Resources Secur-
.°'Co Ltd. It will be remembered that back as far as 1910
'■/turday Night warned its readers against subdivision stuff which
was being sold by the Natural Resources Security Co., Ltd., Geo.
j Hammond, managing director, in what that company was
pleased to call the "town" of Fort George. As a matter of fact,
[he Natural Resources Security company was created to launch
the sale of Fort George lots in 1908, or about as soon as the Grand
Trunk Pacific project was well under way. George J. Hammond
nicked out a nice bit of wooded land near the juncture of the
Fraser and Nechaco rivers. Upon this property was placed (on
their maps) the coming station and railway yards of the Grand
Trunk Pacific road, although it must be remembered that at the
time the railway project was as stated before, in its infancy and
the railway itself hundreds of miles away. On the strength of
this alleged railway station and other terminal facilities upon
their property, aided by a lot of more or less inaccurate literature,
the town lots of the Natural Resources Security company were
sold broadcast throughout Canada.
For many months the officials of the Grand Trunk Pacific made
no statement in regard to the location of their Fort George terminals,  Later on, however, an official of the Grand Trunk railway made known through the columns of Saturday Night that
the Natural Resources Security Co. had no foundation in fact for
assuming, much less stating, that the Grand Trunk Pacific terminals would be on or even near the property which they had
acquired and which they had cut up and sold for town lots. When
the Grand Trunk Pacific was ready to proceed with the Fort
George project, they applied for the purchase of the Indian Reserve, a large plot of land, most of which is some distance away
from the Natural Resources Security company property.    The
managing director of the above named corporation, George J.
Hammond, fought tooth and nail to prevent the sale of this property to the G.T.P., thinking that by so doing he could force the
railway to build its terminal upon Natural Resources Security
property,
This scheme of Hammond's and the Natural Resources company
failed. The G.T.P, acquired the Indian Reserve, and it is expected that the same will be utilized by the railway not only for
terminal purposes but also for townsite purposes,   This will mean
but one thing so far as the Natural Resources Security company
and its many clients are concerned, and that is that they will be
left high and dry with A projected town upon their hands some
miles away trom the railway station. The Hammond concern has
expended a considerable amount of money developing this town-
site, which, with the adjacent land also subdivided, is of sufficient
size to care for a population of 100,000 or more.    The Hammond
concern, with the railway still hundreds of miles away, was apparently so sure that the Grand Trunk Pacific would fall for their
project that they have built stores, a hotel, and even started a
"house organ" newspaper.    Of course, these are all Hammond
Projects, and it is not at all likely that up to the present any appreciable amount of capital, other than that furnished by the
Natural Resources Security Co., has gone into improvements in
this townsite.
The assumption on the part of George J. Hammond, as representing the Natural Resources Security Co., that this Transcontinental railway would necessarily come his way was, oi course, a
false assumption from the start of his enterprise. However, there
appears to be no reason why a railway should dodge around the
country here and there, making townsiters" rich, when they can
enrich themselves bv the same process applied to their own prop-
•% Of course, the people who will lose the money, if the Grand
Trunk Pacific adheres to its policy of utilizing the old Indian Reserve for subdivision as well as terminal purposes, will be the
hundreds upon hundreds of clients who in the last three years or
s° have been foolish enough to hark to this townsite literature in
P'ace of taking the warnings of Saturday Night and other publications which have shown this townsite project up in its true light.
While some criticism might possibly be leveled at the Grand
Trunk Pacific for its present townsite policy, it might be stated
that they are not by any means the only sinners among the railway builders, and at the same time there appears no good reason
Wnv the Grand Trunk Pacific should strain itself to enrich men of
the Hammond type.   When Hammond undertook the sale of this
alleged townsite back in 1909 there was no railway data extant
beyond a first survey to even indicate that the G.T.P, would come
wthin miles of the quarter sections which Hammond had purchased at acreage prices and which he cut up into a townsite to
'at ar» enormous advance.
Wlth Hammond and the G.T.P, working at cross purposes, there
comes a curious mixup in respect to a name. The town of South
*°rt George which is not far removed from the old. Hudson Bay
trading poSt on tne Fraser riveri na8 been located there for many
yeai's. In fact, it is here that everyone in this neighborhood re-
J'fcs. with the exception of the Hammond minions, who live on
|ne Natural Resources townsite and work for him.   To Hammond
this juncture how much of the coin of
the realm could be obtained for "well
'name Fort George sounded good,
nenot only named his wild acres

lilt i Z    ' wou'd>  therefore,  appear

WouU be interesting to know at
located" town lots in the Hammond
townsite of Fort George. These lots
were originally put on the market at
prices ranging from $200 to $2,000 per
lot, but it is very doubtful to-day if any
market whatever can be found for these
properties. It is interesting to look
back upon a price list of Port George
town lots offered for sale a couple of
are placed at $1,000 each; terms, one-
quarter cash, balance six and twelve
months, with 6 per cent interest.
These are set down as "high-class business locations." The same circular
quotes lots which lie "close to the business centre and can be purchased with
almost positive assurance of early and
substantial profits" at from $700 to $1,-
000 each. In connection with this Fort
George townsite project it must also
be remembered that several other
quarter sections were subdivided by
other individuals or corporations. Some
of these properties, tpgether with some
also of the Hammond proposition, will
be many miles away from railway
facilities if the Grand Trunk Pacific
carries out its Indian Reserve proposal.
These lots were marketed originally at
from $150 to $200 eadh, and were advertised as being "well within the mile
circle from the business centre," which
of course, meant the business centre as
George J. Hammond saw it in his mind,
and not as the Grand Trunk Pacific
Bees it now.
Hammond's proposition was a bold
one, and if it had worked out, as he no
doubt thought it might, the returns
therefrom would have made him one of
the richest men in the West. Doping
out a town, however, even to the extent
of erecting buildings, starting a newspaper, getting in a post-office, and
populating the cown with one's own
employees, as Hammond did, does not
necessarily mean that a projected railway is going to take your view of the
matter as regards the location of terminal facilities.
From all appearances it would seem
that Hammond and the Natural Resources Security Company, Ltd., are
out in the cold. However, they are not
to be sympathized with under the circumstances. Hammond gambled, but
unfortunately he was gambling with
other people s money—those who were
foolish enough to hark to the call of
the "merry thought" literature that
has been sent out from their Vancouver offices.
Putting a railway centre on a map
and putting it into practice are two
different matters. Hammond is evidently a man of large imagination, but
unfortunately imagination does not
necessarily lead one's followers to fortune.

EASTERN IS BUSY
There is now a gap of only
about 50 miles between the construction gangs working from
both ends of the Pacific & Great
Eastern Railway line, between
Lillooet and Newport, at the head
pf Howe Sound, according to Mr.
A. Kellett, superintendent of
construction for Contractor Pat
Welch, who has the contracts for
the work. Mr. Kellett returned
from a trip of inspection yesterday, from the Lillooet end of the
route.
Construction camps are dotted
along over 56 miles of the route
and grading work is being vigorously proceeded with, 40 miles
from the Lillooet end and about
16 miles from the Newport end.
The entire length of new line is
108 miles. As soon, however, as
the wagon roads which are now
being built to establish connections from both directions, are
completed, operations right along
the entire section will be prose-
cutede. There is still considerable snow at the Howe Sound
portion of the line, though at the
Lillooet endjconditions are much
better f r construction work.
A base is to be established at
the foot of Bear Mountain, about
16 miles from Newport, as soon
as the new section of track from
the place where the steel end at
present, is laid. This work is
now being proceeded with.
About 250 men are engaged exclusively in road building and
some 1400 are employed on grading from both ends.
It is expected that as soon as
the spring weather sets in that
the constfuction camps will be
extended and that the force of
men will be considerable augmented.
Neither Mr. Kellett or the officials of the P.G.E. engineering
department could give any information as to when construction
work on the section between
Newport and North Vancouver
would be likely to start. It is
understood that the survey work
along the north shore has not
been completed, and that extra
parties will probably be placed
in the field as soon as the
weather is more propitious

A small party of men are at work
tithing for the freight lost in Burns
Lake recently by Teamster Kelly. They
are having fairly good luck, having already landed quite a number of steel
rails and many sacks of coal. There is
good money in the fishing, as $100 a ton
salvage is paid for everything recovered. The water at the point is thirty
feet deep.

EXPRESS CHARGES
Twenty cents a pound looks a lot, doesn't it? Yet to haul
every pound of express matter from Ashcroft to Fort George
we have to use 76 horses, employ 6 experienced stage-drivers
and hire 20 good hostlers. Not much left of 20 cents after
feeding and stabling horses and paying the men's board and
wages, is there? Wages and feed have advanced 25 per cent
in Cariboo these last few years. Our chargej have remained
stationary. Besides, the Railway Commissioners allow Express companies to charge three times freight rate. We
charge lets than double while our service is three times as
Suick.   Could you, or would you, give the public as square a
eal as we are trying to do?
