EXPLORING THE PEACE RIVER
TWO    GOVERNMENT    PARTIES    RETURN
FROM   A THREE MONTHS' TRIP
IN THAT   SECTION.
The two exploratory parties sent out this spring
by the provincial government, to operate and report upon the country in the Peace river, with an
objective at the Findlay rapids, have returned to
South Fort George and passed out to the coast on
Wednesday on their way to Victoria to place before
the government their findings.
The two parties, it will be remembered, left here
on the steamer Nechaco, on June 20, for Giscombe
Portage. One was headed by T. 11. Taylor, with
a complement of live men. The other was in
charge of II. St. ,J. Montizambert with the same
number of assistants. They arrived at Giscombe
on June 22, and from there portaged eight
miles to Summit lake the source of the Parsnip
and the Findlay ami continued along Crooked
river till they reached Fort McLeod. At this
[joint the parties segregated and T. II. Taylor took
the west side of the Findlay, and worked his way
north through to the Findlay rapids. Here a stop
was made and a retrace along the east side of the
same river and the party proceeded to the Bad
river; thence out by way of the Salmon. Mr.
Montizambert covered a 20-mile belt on the eastern
side of the Findlay ami like his colleague, proceeded   north   to   the   Findlay rapids.
The information these parties will place before
the government will be the first authentic data
that has ever been compiled of the country, extending in a 40-mile belt, from Summit lake north
to the Findlay rapids. The work of completing
this work for the government will be taken up
next spring by the same parties, who will take up
their lines at the point left off this year.
The country is a virgin one, of large extent and
without doubt possessing a large area of land suitable for cultivation. F. A. Morrison, who was attached to one o'^ the parties, speaking to a Herald
man, says that only two wet days were experienced in their three months' trip, with a little frost
at night and perfect days. "Fort McLeod," said
Mr. Morrison, "is the entrepot of that vast and
lonely country. It was the only spot in which we
came in contact with one who could speak English.
The Honorable Adventurers have a representative
in Tommy Hammet at this point that has the best
looking garden that has been my good luck to cast
eyes on. It would make the Chinese on Lulu
Island take to smoking opium if they could see the
garden onions grow to the size of baseballs in the
acre patch of Mr. Hammett. The price of provisions there may be gauged by flour selling for $17
a hundred weight and sugar bringing $25 for the
same weight. The necessity of a fire warden for
these remote sections is emphasized by what we
saw on our way in. The country, for a distance
of thirty square miles, embracing that section between Pack river across to the Parsnip, was literally destroyed of timber. On questioning the Indians the latter usually ascribed them to whites, but
the absence of the white man is so marked that the
exploratory parties are inclined to the belief that
the Indians are the real transgressors.
"As to game ami fish, it is a perfect heaven,"
said the narrator. "The Arctic trout, a counterpart of the coast Rainbow, is a sporty ten minutes,
plentiful and as sweet as sugar extract. They will
take a fly with the vividness of a tiger's paw and
play out the reel three times before they will condescend to surrender. As to cariboo and grizzlies,
don't mention it," said Mr. Morrison. Mr. Taylor
brought out four skins that have not their counterpart in the world, which were taken on Bad
river. Mr. Montizambert also secured a silver tip.
Each one of these skins represent a battle royal,
and it was often mentioned at the termination of
these combats, that, if a moving-picture manager
could have secured a film of these individual lights,
they would have brought, a bigger revenue than the
light between the white and black at Reno."
The present business houses and population of
Central Fort George embrace an advertising organ,
a telephone exchange, a bank with one client, and
a band of 16 sheep grazing on the townsite. Bruce
should get a bell and resume his post.
Henceforth the P.. X. steamer will arrive weekly
instead of semi-weekly.    Low water is the cause.
Remove the symbol of righteousness from the
insincere first column of the second page of the
Central Fort George Tribune. Don't besmirch the
name of John Houston by shrouding an advertising leaflet with the garments of an honorable man.
"FOUNDED BY JOHN HOUSTON" is the stamp
of merit, the sealing-wax of probity and the envelope of confidence. These three articles are not
to be found in the Tribune. Houston's name was
not sold. His heir did not dispose of it. What
was trafficked for was a little cold type, a press,
and a type rack. That was all. The man who
appropriated "founded by, John Houston" is a ten-
cent rag-picker from Minneapolis. Trading on the
name of John Houston, by a company with which
deceased was at daggers drawn at the time of his
demise, is like Satan holding audience attired in the
livery of the court of heaven; or, like the Moor, in
Othello, when he says:
"Who steals my purse steals trash,
'Twas mine, 'tis his and has been slave to thousands;
Hut he who lilches from me my good NAME
Robs me of that which enriches him not, but makes me
poor indeed."
 ^ .
The Central Fort George people, this week and
the week before, were most vividly brought to a
stern realization of the fact that the Nechaco river,
at this time of the year, does not possess water
sufficient with which to float the palatial boat of
the B. C. Express Company. The steamer B. X.
during the summer months has found it extremely
difficult to navigate its way up to the townsite in
the woods, but the climax came two weeks ago
while endeavoring to take the boat up to the Hammond picnic grounds. The boat ran onto a sandbar a short distance from the mouth of the Fraser,
and it is related by the solitary passenger book?d
for that widely advert'sed sepulchre, that had it
not been for the wise and prompt action of the
officers and crew in bringing the capstan into play
and pulling the boat off the bar, another of those
numerous and melancholy accidents which have
fallen to the lot of the other river boats, would
have been the fate of the B. X. Since the accident, however, no attempt has been made to depart
from the trodden path of the Fraser — where South
Fort George is located- and no more trips will be
made to the Hammond monastery up the noiseless
N-e-c-h-a-c-o.   Awfully sari i
The little cabin in which the Tribune first saw
the light of day has disappeared and gone the way
of all primitive northern bungalows. Mr. Walker
purchased the building from the original owner of
the townsite, A. G. Hamilton, and on Monday razed
it to the ground. The dimensions of the little canvas-covered cabin were 10x12, and in it John Houston had the most compact little printing plant that
ever graced the confines of isolated sections. It
was a departmental store in the woods. In it was
a restaurant, a rooming house, a drugstore, a carpenter shop, a library, a bindery, and the publishing office of an unprivileged-mail weekly newspaper. The editor was the head of all these departments. He composed as he stood at the solitary frame. He decomposed in a sitting posture.
He washed his forms with water taken from the
Fraser, lit his perpetual fire in a small box-stove,
swept out all the departments every morning,
packed his coal-oil from Kennedy's store, filled his
one little oil lamp, and polished its chimney three
times a day. At meal hours he spread a sheet of
paper over the imposing stone and stood up at his
meals- bacon and beans, coffee and cakes. There
was not one minute lost in the long day that went
into the early hours of the morning. He worked out
1909, and worked in 1910, by setting new six point
by lamp light. He did the same on Christmas eve.
He attended to correspondence numbering 300 letters per month. He was scrupulously particular
about his mailing list and his books. And with all
this he found time to formulate a platform for the
Progressive Liberal Party of British Columbia.
And all this from a man of sixty-one years. Is it
any wonder that he succumbed? And now this
abode of Houston has been dismembered for the
sake of disposing of the dozen planks the structure
contained for commercial purposes. Had the big-
hearted owner of this priceless land-mark but revolved the thought in his inner self, he would
have left to posterity an emblem that would have
stimulated the unborn thousands and spurred them
on to emulate the actions of one who knew not the
meaning of the word failure.
OMENICA, THE UNEXPLORED BELT
IS THE NEXT MINERAL SECTION THAT
WILL FEEL THE PULSE OF THE
PROSPECTOR.
It has long been an open secret to those who
have followed mining- -both lode and placer —
throughout this province of enormous area and potential possibilities, that there is a virgin field to
the north of us that has so far eluded the entreaties of the noble band of prospectors who have done
so much to open up British Columbia to the world.
The Omenica is a vast section that has yielded reluctantly what placer gold has been taken from its
storehouse. Its inaccessibility has preserved it inviolate for the advent of the second transcontinental line. The high cost of transportating the
necessaries of life, coupled with the fact that the
distance to be traversed being great, rendered the
working season too short to be profitable. By the
completion of the Grand Trunk Pacific this district
will be made easily accessible to the thousands who
will pour into the new Eldorado in quest of the
yellow metal that has lured millions of people
away from monotonous commercial pursuits. The
avenue to the Omenica is by way of Fort George—
and Fort George only.
Dr. R. E. McKechnie and his brother Eberts,
both of Vancouver, only last week returned from
a month's trip into that section, and speak highly
of what they saw. They went in by way of the
Skeena river. With a double purpose in view,
that of enjoying an outing away from the telephone
and other necessaries of modern life and looking
over the northern interior of the province, the
brothers set out several months ago. They made
their way in from Prince Rupert by way of the
Skeena river, pushing their course into the region
about Manson lake, now known to few others than
the mining prospectors; and proceeded well on in
the direction of Parsnip river. At Slate creek they
had the opportunity of seeing what is being done
on the property of the old Forty-third company.
The work under the charge of the manager, Mr.
Beach, is not being pushed forward at a very rapid
rate at present as the company are delaying operations until somewhat better transportation facilities are afforded.
Speaking of the outlook in that country they are
agreed that one of the greatest mineral sections in
the province is awaiting its turn to be opened up.
Dr. McKechnie, who is well acquainted with the
province, has no hesitation in pronouncing the area
which will be opened in the northern interior as
excelling that to be found in the southern portion
of British Columbia. The character of the country
lends itself more easily to transportation. There
are vast areas of level and rolling land through
which it is not difficult to proceed. While it is a
land of immense distances there is not the same
difficulties in the way of mountains as in some of
the other parts of the province.
It will, in his opinion, be a district that will be
productive of vast returns from deep placers. His
brother pointed out that practically every stream
in that country carried colors. There are immense
riches undoubtedly hidden away there and the
opening up of the country by the providing of
the means of communication will be followed by
rich returns from gold mining. The G. T. P.
will assist in no small way in the work of opening
it up. It is a country, however, that will give the
richest returns from the use of machinery and at
the present time this cannot be transported owing
to the prohibitive rates.
 *	
Apples in the capital of the north sell for 25c
per pound. Rough and dressed lumber bring $35
to $60, with a voracious public eagerly awaiting its
delivery. There is room for ten sawmills. Potatoes command 10c per sixteen ounces. Oats retail at a fraction below lc per ounce 40c per
pound. Hay is worth a city street car fare, 5c per
pound. And all this in the midst of an agricultural empire.
An echo of the celebrated Peruna shooting case
will be heard at Clinton, October 4th, when H. H.
Jones will be tried for shooting M. Shimerhorn in
the bunk-house of the Clark mill last January.
Two witnesses, at that time employees of the mill,
have been cited to appear at Clinton on the above
date, and both gentlemen -Henry Couture and Ed.
Stuart- -Teff for that point on Friday by the SS.
B. X. Mr. Stuart will proceed to the coast at the
termination of the trial and remain outside for the
winter. Hllil PLUME" HtHMLU

The King George Hunt Club held a
run on Saturday. The course consisted
of the insignificant 30-mile gallop to
the hup fields of Mud river and return.
T.ie objective, while there, was at the
estancia of the Hon. J. N. Miller,
whose proverbial hospitality is a byword with the natives who have lived
here since the Hudson's Bay post was
founded, some 102 years ago. The
large bags secured is another evidence
of the fertility of the soil, and corroborates the government reports anent the
agricultural possibilities of our wide
empire, The party consisted of H. C.
Seaman, W. McCash, M, C. Wiggins,
.1. N. Miller, John Bronger and Totnaso
Tracy.
E. A. Seebach, of Giscombe Portage,
41 miles north of here, a storekeeper
at that point, came down the river witli
one of Green & Burden's survey pur-

of freight that has been on the road
between Soda Greek and his store three
months.
Three safe items this week may be
recorded in the heavyweight line, middleweight and featherweight, as follows: Hank of II. N. N., a2-lon safe;
Traders' Hunk, a I-ton safe, and The
Herald, a lfitl-pounder. The last-named

A well attended public meeting was
held Monday night in the temporary
school building nt the corner of Fourth
andThapageavenues for thepurpise of
taking action with respect to school
matters and endorse the petition of the
school trustees. A. K. Bourchier was
elected chairman, and A. G. Hamilton, secretary. The ratification of the
report presented by the trustees embraces the immediate construction of a
large commodious school house and the
raising of funds with which to equip the
same with the necessary paraphernalia,
such as desks, maps, blackboards, etc.,
before the winter sets in. The permanent selection of the' school site has
been determined upon on the government block embraced by Hamilton and
Thapage and Sixth and Seventh. The
site is an ideal one, with an elevation of
Borne thirty feet above the townsite
proper and commanding a superb view
of the Fraser river. The necessity for
enlarged quarters was fully demonstrated by Miss L. Brady's report in
which it was stated that during the
three weeks' life of the school there
had been an attendance of eighteen
pupils, with only a total of six days'
absence. Miss Brady must be commended for her tact and energy, in th*
results achieved at this, the initial
stages of the little Jed school house.
The secretary of Ihe school board has
advertised in the coast papers for a
duly certified teacher, and it is expected
that by the time the new school is completed a teacher will have been selected
by the board. The salary is $90 per
month.
The following is a list of the school
children attending the first, and only
school in this section of British Col-
umbia;
Alex Bird, Frank Bird,
Fliza Bird, Clarence Burns,
Harriet Duncan, Evelyn Edwards,
