City Wants New Hearing
On Station Site Question.
Mayor and Aldermen  Unanimously Opposed to Oak and
Ash Location     Thinks the City Should be
Heard in the Matter.
WINNER OF THE VICTORIA CROSS.
It's a quiet and unusual week
in Prince George when the old-
timer, Mr. Depot Location, is not
"resoluted" for or against. The
city council has again taken a
hand in the mailer, and at Monday evening's meeting passed the
followine. resolution, after an
amendment that eliminated the
George Street location :
1 Thai tbe' city solicitor !»• instructed
to apply in the governor-general-in-
coiincil by way ol appeal from the decision of the railway commission, fixing
the stalion site al Oak and Ash Streets
or for an order lhal the e'ity of Prince
George, as a n< w party, be beard in
the mat tier."
In asking for a full discussion
on the question Mayor Gillett
stated that he did not believe
there was any use in taking action now. He was, however in
favor of a plebiscite being taken
giving the people the choice of
Oak and Ash, Victoria, or George
Streets.
Aldermen Parks and Livingstone were prepared to stand pat
on George Street as the proper
location, but should a plebiscite
be taken would say to havej
only Oak and Ash and George'
Streets voted on.
Aid. Lambert was in favor of
George Street, but would perhaps
consider a compromise site.
Aid. Eagel wanted a plebiscite. I
Aid. Ellis was for any site that!
would finally settle the matter.
The above resolution was put
and carried unanimously.
The regular routine business of
the meeting disclosed little of
public interest, except Aid. Ellis'
nolice lhat he' would introduce an
"indemnity" bylaw at the next
regular meeting, fixing an annual
salary for the mayor and aldermen.
Bylaw No. 17 relating to city
scavenging, received its third
reading. Householders are not
allowed to do their own scavenging, but must pay a monthly rate
to the citv. Violators may be
punished by fines or jail sentences,
Financial Interests Will
Oppose Prohibition in B.C.
Vancouver, Aug. 18.—Representatives of various financial
interests met yesterday and discussed the recent request made
by a delegation lo Sir Richard
McBride to prohibit the sale of
liquor during the period of the
war. The following resolution
was passed:
"That owing to the magnitude
of  the  interests  involved  this
meeting is opposed to any emergency legislation tending to prohibition,  even during the continuance of the war, without a    ,,, „, _    , „
general referendum to the people     W' T' Bond- formerly accoun-
of this province; and that a copy Itant for the B. C. Express Com-
of this resolution be handed to pany   here,   and  who,   a   few

London, Aug. 18.—A further advance of 500 yp(rds by th allied troops
on the Gallipoli peninsula i.s announced in a report from (len. Sir Ian Hamilton, the British expeditionary eom-
mander-in chief, giving out here to-
day.   The statement follows:
"Sir Ian Hamilton reports that in
the southern zone the situation was
unchanged during the Uth and 15th.
The Turks Kept up the usual artillery
lire without much effect,
"In the nijrthern zone the right
(lank of tiie Australian and New Zealand army corps' position was heavily
attacked during the night of the Uth
and 15th, but all attacks were repuls-
eel. At- Suvla the troops on the left
Hank made a short advance on the
afternoon of the 17th with a view to
straightening out the line. They moved forward under considerable guard'
and rifle fire and gained about 500
ya,rds, capturing a Turkish trench and
taking two officers und twenty other
prisoners."

All Endorsed
The ratepayers of the city
passed all the bylaws voted on
last Saturday, aggregating $150,-
000 to be raised by ten and fifteen-year bonds carrying 6 per

With the exception of the city
hall bylaw, which had a bare
majority of 1, all the measures
were carried by a large margin.
Deer Shooting
Starts Sept. 1st.
List of Game Seasons Throughout Province in New Ordering, nincil.
The annual order- in - council
regulating the killing and sale of
game throughout the province
has been passed by the executive
council, at Victoria, and duly
signed by the lieutenant-governor, The regulations are very
similar to those of last year for
the mainland, with some slight
changes, An interesting innovation is that for the first time on
record it will be permissable to
shoot hen pheasants on Denman
and Hornby Islands for sixteen
days from December 1 to December 15. This is to be tried as an
experiment this year, the birds
being numerous on the two islands.
The principal clauses of the
order-in-council are stated by the
game warden to be as follows :
Deer of all kinds will be open
throughout, the entire province
from September 1 till December
15. The limit will be three deer
for any one man either for killing
or for sale. The sale of venison
will be allowed from September
1 till October 15 all over the
province, the meat to be that of
bucks of over one year in age.
Last year the sale of venison was
prohibited on Vancouver Island.
Fur bearing animals, except
beaver,   can   be  trapped  from
New Hotel Will
Be Credit to City
The new hotel building now
under construction at the corner
of Third avenue and Brunswick
street by Mr. J. H. Johnson is
rapidly assuming proportions, and
with the present rate of progress
maintained will be open to the
public within a month. The hotel
will have 58 rooms, each modern
in every appointment, with hot
and cold running water. Cables
are in place for the installation
of telephones in every room.
There will be three stories in the
building proper, with a large
well-lighted basement for poolroom and barber shop.
The building will be of brick
veneer finish, all materials of
which will be of local manufacture. The new hotel will be a
credit to the city and a monument
to the varied industrial resources
of the district.

Fort St. John Country
Has Wonderful Future
Edmonton, Aug. 18.—L, W. Maguire
has just returned from spending some
months in the Fort St. John district,
and is very enthusiastic about that
country.
Fort St. John is on the Peace river
in British Columbia, about ISO miles
wesi of Peace River Crossing. When
the E., U. & B. C. railway is completed it will run about 30 miles soutli of
the Fort. At present there are few
settlers in the disrtict, but Mr. Maguire sees a future (or the country as
it is almost in the very centre of the
great Peace River block, and has a
splendid farming country back of it.
The crops this year in the district
are tine. Wheat anel all other grains
do well, while vegetables of all kinds
can be grown in abundance. He says
the best buy he has seen in any of the
districts north i.s grown around Fort
St. John. While'as an evidence of
the fertility of the soil is the prevalence of the peavine, which is always
a criterion.
When Mr. Maguire left there on
August 7, be says the haying was in
full swing.
London, Aug. 17.—Kaiser Wilhelm has quarreled with Imperial
Chancellor von Bethman-Holl-
weg and the latter's resignation
is imminent, according to a despatch from Amsterdam.
New York, Aug. 17th.-Jack
Munro,  who  once   fought  Jim
Jeffries for the world's ehampi-j
onship, lies dead somewhere in
Northern   France   or   Belgium.;
Frank  .Moran,  just   back   from
England,  says he read Munro's
name in the list of killed and i
heard his heroic death spoken of j
several times by wounded soldiers
back from the lighting lines.
Jack Munro had about as adventurous a life as any man that
lever followed the ring.   Playing
tackle on the Butte football team
j he helped clean up the big col-
■ lege  and  club   teams  between
Chicago and San Francisco. Later
Munro threw the hammer and
put the shot.   He was a great
athlete.
While playing football, Munro
visited Jack O'Brien's training
camp one day and became interested in boxing.
Entering the coast championships at the Olympic Club, he
knocked out three rivals and became heavyweight amateur
champion. He turned professional and fought Jeffries four rounds
winning the 81000 purse offered
at a Butte theatre by the theatrical management to any one
who would stay that number of
rounds. Munro said he played
football with Jelf. Jeff went to
his knees once and it was then
that Munro knocked him down.
Clark Ball grabbed Munro and
took him east. Here he whipped
Tom Sharkey, knocking Tom
down with a straight left to the
jaw. He knocked out Al. Lim-
rick, Peter Maher, and several
others. He showed himself a
game, rough and ready, good
natured fellow. He fought Jackson six rounds.
Munro's finish came when he
fought Jeffries a return match I
in San Francisco.   The fight was I
stopped.
After that Munro went north, i
prospecting in the  wilderness of
Northern Ontario.    He  was one
of the first on the ground in the|
big   Cuba t  discovery   and    his
claims made him a rich man.
For several years he was may-'
or of Elk City, a capitalist, and a I
member of many clubs in Cana- j
dian cities.
Following a fire at Elk City,'
Jack returned to Cobalt and when
the first news of gold came out'
from the Porcupine in Northern
Ontario Jack was one of the first!
to make the rush through musk-
egg and mud to the new northern I
camp, and established himself at
(lolden Cjty, at the northern end
of Porcupine Lake.
It was here that he invested so
heavily that when the "bottom"
fell out Jack lost all he had made
in previous years, The great
fire that swept the north in 1911
completed his ruin and Jack literally had to walk out of camp.
His enlistment in the Princess
Patricias at the beginning of the
war was announced and he was
regarded as a grand addition to
that nuble band of brave hearts
for he had the courage of a lion
and was as strong as men are
ever made.
German Spy
in Vernon Camp
Vernon, Aug. 18.--A German
spy who enlisted in the ranks of
the 5 .th regiment at Vancouver,
by representing himself to be a
Swiss reservist anxious to fight
on the side of the Allies, has been
arrested and will be made the
subject of a court martial.
It is said the authorities have
evidence of the most incriminating nature to submit, which will
show that he is a German under
an assumed name, and that since
his arrival at Vernon he had been
collecting military information
and offering it for sale to Germany. A watch kept on his mail
is said to have supplied revelations of the most damaging character.
Seventeen Recruits
for 54th Battalion
Lieut. ( . E. Bentley, recruiting officer for the 51th battalion,
now in camp at Vernon, left here
Tuesday morning with seventeen
recruits. The officer's stay here

THE  BYLAWS.
The almost unanimous endorsa-
tion of the money bylaws by the
ratepayers on Friday last, whereby the city is asked to mortgage
its credit to the extent of $150,-
000 for the carrying out of civic
improvements, leaves no doubt
that Prince (leorge people are
desirous of seeing this city
emerge from the village stage,
and take its place among the important centres of Western Canada.

WHAT ADVERTISING  DOES.
GERMANY'S STRENGTH.
In an affidavit filed in a prize
court in England some days ago,
Major Eric Dillon made an estimate of Germany's military
strength. Of actual fighting men
including those in garrisons and
on  lines of communication, she
has 4,000,000; in training there
are 750,000; working in munition
and in other necessary factories
and coal  mines, 2,750,000; total.
7,500,0(10,   In addition  to these
he estimates that there may be a
temporary wastage  of 500,000,
which   would  swell  the total to
8,000,000.   Ho concludes from an
examination of all the available
data that Germany cannot  put
more  than 3,500,000 men in the
fighting line   without   reducing
the supply of munitions below
what is essential.   Another authority   says   that   Germany's
last  available  reserve is a force
of 750,000 mon,   which  will be
ready to join  the colors in December   next,   If  these  figures
are   correct,   Germany   cannot
have many more men ready for
the fighting line than Great Britain has, and must  be  hopelessly
outnumbered   by   Britain   and
France combined.
WHERE GERMANY FAILED.
7'he departmental stores' catalogues have been arriving the
past week, some by mail and
some by express, They are very
eagerly sought after too. During
the fall and winter many hundreds of dollars will be sent from
this district to
partment stores. Why ? Because
they advertise. They tell tlie
people what they have to sell
land how much it costs. They
I keep the people posted on every
I new idea. They help them to
buy intelligently. Do the men
and women read those catalogues
and study them ? Just take a
peep into any house in the district. Even the little children
study them, It is advertising,
and good honest advertising. It
is just what the people want and
naturally the man who advertises
gets the business, the big cash
business, while the non-advertiser worries along with the little
stock, the long credits and the
poor pay. Do you see the difference '!   Omineca Herald,
British troops, sent across the
channel and landed in Holland.
With the troops from Britain,
the well trained and equipped
Dutch force would make an army
at least a million strong, almost
in the rear of the Germans in
Belgium and France, and in a
position to strike at once at the
German lines of communication.
No doubt (iermany would dispute the landing of the British
troops in Holland. She could
only do this with her fleet and it
would bring on the general naval
the eastern de- i engagement Britain has long
; awaited. Students of the war
situation are now watching Holland.

The fact that the bridge is the
properly of the railway company
and lhat said company operates
under a Dominion charter would
not deter the fiery scribe from
dealing forcibly and summarily
with tlie railway octopus. Verily
many wise men have come out of
the east, but all must yield the
palm to the brilliant mind that
evolved this daring sortie.

An interesting instance of the
extent to which th6 timber resources of the province have been
under-estimated is given in reports recently submit tel to Hon,
W. R. Ross. Cruisers lately returned from an examination of
the valleys of the Elk, Salmon,
White, and Gold Rivers, on Vancouver Island, came across one
hundred thousand acres of unalienated crown timber, with an
average stand of fifteen thousand
feet to the acre. This timber is
readily accessible, in fact the
grades which exist in these valleys render it possible to bring
logs across the island from Nootka to Salmon River, crossing the
surveys of the Canadian Pacific
and Canadian Northern railways.
Interesting Trip.
Cordon II. Gower, provincial inspector of schools, has just returned
from a most interesting trip into the
British Columbia section of the Peace
River country, where he has been
looking over school sites for the department, Of the three routes, (1)
via Prince George, Summit lake,
Crooked, Pack and Parsnip rivers;
(2) via Edson, nver wagon rond into
Grande Prairie; (.'!) via Edmonton and
Peace River Crossing, the latter is
the one generally used today. The
Edson route, over which the mails
were formerly taken, is a good winter
road.
From Edmonton, via the Edmonton,
Dunvegan <_ llritish Columbia railway,
it is now possible to reach within fifty
miles of the Crossing, and within seven
miles of the Smokey river. A temporary bridge is being built across the
Smokey, and before the beginning of

Victoria.—During the discussion at the midsummer quarterly
meeting of the Western Pine
Manufacturers' Association at
Spokane, Mr. Mcdoldrich, of the
McGoldrich Lumber Company,
Spokane, told of attending a
meeting of thc Mountain Lumber
Manufacturers in Calgary recently. He said the difference
between the attitude of the U. S.
government and that of Canada
toward the lumber industry was
marked. "The United States
government," he said, "is holding a post-mortem examination
on the industry, while British
Columbia is doing constructive
work for the industry."

Crown lands are assessable,
according to a decision given by
Judge Young at Prince Rupert
recently. The case came up
under an appeal for the city's
assessment taken by the West-

the company and is now being

There are about 800 settlers in the

has been found in providing lumber

A deputation of thirty-five, demanding prohibition until the

week. The premier pointed out
the difficulties of the question,

At the opening of the Marine

He declared the business of that

utmost vigor as early as possible.
