 The steel is now here, and an era
t development is at hand such as
vaB undreamed ot prior to the advent of tlie iron horse. Everybody
,„k a great influx ot new blood
,uill Bew business.
Before, however, the town grows
,„„„ its present stage into something larger it is well tor the Herald
to point out that even before the rails
arrived, there have grown up here
Important industries, pioneer firms
that have confronted the difficulties
Incidental to poneer life, and won in
the battle. Such a firm is the
Northern Lumber & Mercantile com-
.„,,,, Limited, of South Fort George.
Of this firm W. F. Cooke is president, Russell Peden, vice-president,
Bnd ii. E. McLaughlin, secretary-
treasurer.
The company has developed into
Its present state from a partnership
formed by Russell Peden and W. F.
Cooke, in August of 1910, when they
bought the old Borland Mill at
Williams Lake, hauling it up over
the Cariboo Road to Soda Creek,
thence by ti. X. to here. Three days
after Its arrival at the B. X. dock,
i! iyas sawing lumber on District Lot
2003. The population at that time
being about 300 souls.
The lullowing spring the company
buill their large store on Second
street in South Fort George, which
they still- occupy and in which at
present they carry one of the most
complete general stocks in the country.
Times have changed since those
days. When the store was opened
a sign was put out inviting everyone
in the country to attend the opening
dance'. Although every girl and
woman in ihe country was present
they (lid not number over 20. At
that time a staff of two manned the
store and office. At present seven
are required,
The? company's saw mill has since
been removed to District lot 2160.
It is a different mill trom the mill
of August, 1910, Indeed, having more
than three times its cutting capacity. The logs are brought right
from the woods to the Baw, manufactured and sent direct to the South
Fort George and Fort George
yards.
The plaining mill, run in conjunction with the saw mill, has two machines of an entirely up-to-date pat-
tern; one a S. A. Wood's inside
moulder and the other a three-sided
plane. Anything in the catalogue
can be turned out on these machines.
Thi plant Is electric lighted from its
own power. The stables, bunk house,
cook house' ami office are all clean
and airy and electric lighted also.
Thi' mill is running every day at
pre ..lit ami is also carrying on log-
pint operations, putting from 300 to
400 logs into the mill  yard  daily.

REVENUE    SHOWS
GOOD
INCREASE
Financial Statement Issued at Ottawa
Reports Exceedingly Favorable
Condition
Ottawa, Jan. 19.—The gloomy
! statements that the finances of the
[country are going to the bad are dis-
j credited by the figures of the revenue
and expenditure issued by the Finance Department today. They show
that for the nine months ending December 31, the revenue is $127,-
571,7f)2, as compared with $124,-
577,356 last year. This is an increase of about $3,000,000. The
present outlook is that when the year
is ended Hon. Mr. White will be
again able to announce a record-
breaking year for the Dominion. The
customs returns alone show a decrease. The apparent decrease is a
little over $2,000,000, but of this decrease $1,817,499 is accounted for by
the fact that the Chinese revenue
is now included under miscellaneous
Instead of under customs. The real
decline in customs revenue for the
nine months is only $391,215. The
excise figures show an increase from
$16,198,474 to $16,660,296. The
postal receipts are the best sign of
the state of business, and show an
increase from $8,250,000 to $9,-
025,000. Public works, including
railways, show an increase in revenue
from jJ-9,975^.96 to $11,570,527.
Miscellaneous revenue increased from
$5,406,377 to $7,777,370. The expenditure on current account for the
nine months was $75,957,425, compared with $67,001,575, an increase
of nearly $9,000,000. On capital account the expenditure was $40,828,-
951, compared with $22,670,103, an
increase due to the railway subsidies
and the great national harbor works
the Government has started. The
national debt shows a decrease of
over $3,00,0.0 over the same period
last year. Altogether the figures
are of a most encouraging character,
showing that Hon. Mr. White is financing carefully, that the Government could not be in a sounder position and that'the blue ruin tales of
the Liberals are without foundation.
The financial statement shows that
the public debt now stand at $303,-
5f',2,104, an increase of slightly less
than half a million for the month.
The funded debt payable in Canada
is $303,640, aud in London, $267,-
541, i,21.

Ottawa, Jan. 19, ■ i Special. I -The
eh bate on the address In reply to
the speech from the throne was opened In the house of commons this afternoon by Hon, 11. F, McLeod, former solicitor general of New Brunswick ami newly elected member of
the federal house for York County.
A. Lavallee, of BellchasBe, Que.,
BOCOnded  the  address.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier, leader of the
opposition, led the attack on the government, criticizing the speech from
the throne. Hfe deplored the lack of
mention of a tariff tevision to meet
the high cost of living and that tho
government had not seen fit to grant
the demands of the farmer for free
wheat and wider markets. He noted
also a lack of reference to the navy
and bantered the government for
having shelved their so-called emergency policy,
Victoria Boy  Badly  Beaten   in  the
Fifteenth  Hound
Vancouver, Jan. 20.— (Special.) —
Joe Bayley was badly beaten by
Johnny O'Leary, of Seattle, in the
fifteenth and final round of their
bout at the Stevenson arena on
Friday night. Until the opening of
the fjnal round honors were about
even and the sparring had been hard
with little or no clinching, all the
way through. At the opening of the
fifteenth O'Leary landed Bayley a
right on the jaw which sent the latter reeling around the ring with his
knees Bagging. O'Leary followed up
with blows to the fare and body
knocking Bayley through the ropes.
Baylejtwas helped back and was out
until tlie count of eight. Two more
blows sent him against the ropes
helpless and the referee stopped the
fight.

SHIPMENT OF BEEF COMING
Steamer    Waimate    on    Her    Way
to    Vancduver   With   Several
Thousand    Tuns
Vancouver, Jan. 20.—The fact
that between two and three thousand tons of beef are coming to Vancouver overseas from New Zealand
in one cargo early in January, is
just another proof of the anomaly
that Canada is importing meat while
exporting it alive to the United
States. Tlie minister of agriculture
declared in Ottawa the other day
that cities in Canada were comparatively growing much faster than the
farming districts—that the people
are not getting on the farms fast
enough to supply the needs of the
whole country,
Passenger and freight service to
Prince George on the Grand Trunk
Pacific line will be opened on or
about February 1, according to advices received by the Herald this
week.
At the present time passenger
trains are running as far as Mile 190
and it will not be difficult to establish a regular service through to this
divisional point.
According to the Herald's information, a daily train service is to be
inaugurated on the date mentioned.
Freight rates have not as yet
been given out in detail, but it is understood that a rate of $2.04 from
Toronto to Prince George and a rate
of $1.90 from Winnipeg to Fort
George have been quoted by the
railroad company to some wholesale
houses.
During the past week or so Mr.
Kidd, a traveller representing the
J, .!. Taylor Manufacturing Company of Toronto has been here taking orders for safes. He has made
a record clean-up, many business
houses being willing to purchase
these weighty conveniences at tlie
prospect of lower freight rates. It
is stated that these safes can be delivered in Fort George cheaper than
in Vancouver, the difference being
something like $10 on a $300 safe.
The  committee  in  charge  of  the
celebration  to  mark  the  coming  of
steel has requested the Herald to announce that every person in tho town
and district is invited to attend and
aid in making it a success.
In order to properly observe the
occasion—one of the most significant lhat has been or will be In the
history of this country—It is suggested that a general holiday be declared and that everybody who is
able to make the trip be present at
the advent of the tracklayer.
Among the features of the celebration that have been mentioned
will be a brass band of 10 or 12
pieces, which will play a number of
selections, a parade of surveyors,
pioneers, and school children, and a
representative corps of early day
Hudson's Bay Company trappers.
These will, however, be mere Incidents of the day, the Idea being to
have a truly representative gathering present. Short addresses will
be delivered by representative men
of the district.
It is impossible to predict the actual dnte of the arrival of steel at
tliis side of the bridge for more than
lone day ahead, but according to the
i progress  at  present  being  made  in
the    construction of the temporary
| bridge, it is probable that steel will
cross to this side on Monday next.
The committee will circulate the
news as soon ns the date can be announced v. ith any degree of definite-
ness.

Large Building Program.
Canada's     progress    In     railway
building during 1913 exceeds by far
any former year's record.    The three
transcontinental railways have been
working steadily  in extending their
systems and  great gains have been
! made    in    the    transportation lines
j both east and west.   During the past
j year the railway board approved at
I least 7,250 miles of new trek which
j has come into opet-ation.      Besides
I construction has proceeded in several
j thousand additional miles.    At least
($100,000,000  was spent on    capital
j account  by  Canadian railways last
1 year.

character of its people. In a warm
climate the people are apt to be indolent and lazy, but an atmosphere
such as a Canadian winter is not one
tint offers inducements to tlie
habitual street corner loafer. Sixty
below zero is a far Aetter test of
character than any immigration department regulation that was ever
invented, and a guarantee that for
all time we will be a people of courage, hardihood, manliness and endurance. From the early days our
snows have kept away from this
country the weaklings, the poor of
spirit, the lovers of luxury and ease.
The courtiers of Fiance, and tiie
English and Spanish aristocrats
rather than face a Canadian winter
sailed for the subtropical parts of the
American continent and there strove
to sot up a civilization based upon
the enslaved labor of the negro and
the Indian.
It is almost phenomlnal how suddenly these snows enrich our life.
Of a sudden our streets are converted
fiom an ordinary unattractive ap-
pearance to a scene of gaiety and
healthy outdoor life that cannot be
rivalled anywhere else in the world.
What sports are there for full-
blooded men ar.d women comparable
with those of a Canadian city under
two feet of snow.
What climate   is   there   anywhere
which can bring out the beauty of
really  healthy   and  vigorous  young :
womanhood,  the flush of color and ;
brightness of eye that bespeaks the i
supreme relish of life, as do our keen |
breezes,   our   dazzling   winter   sun- .
shine,  the sparkling   drifts   of   our
fairy snow?
Every year we are learning better
and   better   the   values of this un- ]
rivalled cl mate and the proper way
to treat it     Kvery year we get more |
and more into the open air and spend !
less   time   in   our   close   and   over- |
heated rooms;   we   have   discovered |
that active circulation of the blood is '
a much better way to secure circulation of the blood than hot air.
The immense economic value of I
snow—the best possible form of soil
preservative, invigorator and stimu-
I ' ' for the productive work of
s ■ ug and summer—has been too

Three Thousand Tons of Concrete.
Hazelton, ,lan. 15.— Superintendent;
Graham, for Bates & Rogers, concrete
contractors on the G.T.P., has return-'
ed after a business trip to the south.
He stated tiiat the concreting of Ross'
big tunnel woejld be completed within
the next five weeks. The tunnels
around Kitseias are done and the slow
orders to the trainmen are taken off.
At Mile 44 about forty feet at the
western entrance to the tunnel is now
finished being concreted.
The big job Bates & Rogers have for
this wintsr is hauiing three thousand
torn of cement from the end of steel

Over a hundred four-hor8e teams will
be on the job and as many more as can
be secured. Good prices for freighting
are being paid.
Track-laying at the end of steel was
held up for a few days awaiting the
completion of a small bit of grading.
This was completed on the 10th, and
tracklaying started again. Track will
ke put down to the lower end of Fraser
Lake at Mile 338. This will enable the
contractors to get their supplies in
oxer the ice from that point.

match in New York was proposed,
because of some injury suffered by
Cross, and, being reminded, Ritchie
decided to loosen his purse strings
to the extent mentioned.
So that there should be no mistake about it, it might be mentioned
that if Jim Buckley, manager of
Tommy v Murphy, had not knocked
under completely in respect to the
terms suggested, there would have
been no fight.
Buckley wanted 2E per cent, of the
gate for Murphy. When after several
pow-wows he found Ritchie should
have his $15,000, and that whatever
was left after expenses were paid
should be divided by Coffroth and
Murphy. Not a word was said about
reimbursing Coffroth, even in a small
degree, for the amount he lost by the
December 10 match falling through.
Chance to Redeem Himself
It is probably a good thing for all
concerned that the match has been
brought on the board again, especially so far by Champion Ritchie.
In the belief that he entertained
a desire to evade Murphy entirely,
many of the champion's ardent admirers were beginning to sour on
him, and if the match had fallen
through he really felt he was standing out for his rights, he would have
found the cold shoulder turned toward him in many quarters. If
Ritchie trains faithfully and defeats
Tommy Murphy signally he will find
himself on the top crest of popularity. Sportdom is so constituted that
it always is the right man that wins.

Dear Mr. Jorgensen,—I came
down here to spend Christmas in the
rain and left what I consider the
best climate in Western Canada when
I left old Fort George.
I was just wondering if it would
be at all possible for you to duplicate the grains that you gave me for
our office at Fort George and send it
to Charles W. lifting, Woodstock,
Ont., stating that they came from
your land. I think it would be a
great benefit to our part of the district and assist us in the future in
a number of land sales, for no doubt
that during this summer a number
of people from Ontario will be visiting Fort George and looking for
land. I shall be willing to pay you
for whatever trouble you are put to
in the matter.
Wishing you a happy and prosperous new year, I am, yours faithfully, F. L. MURDOFF.

WILLOW RIVER
British Columbia
The Grand Trunk Pacific Railway Company are
now disposing of the remaining portion of their
lots in the new town of Willow River at the confluence of the Fraser, Salmon and Willow rivers.
By those who are in close touch of the true conditions, this new town is considered to be one of
future importance in Central British Columbia.
In investing in Willow River property- be sure
that your property comes to you direct from the
Grand Trunk Pacific Railway Company—make no
mistake in this. There is only one official and
original Grand Trunk Pacific Railway town of
Willow River at the confluence of the Fraser,
Salmon and Willow rivers. It is located on Lot
785. Station site was approved by Board of Railway Commissioners under date of March 26th,
1912, Order No. 16179. We have no interest in
outside subdivisions. For authentic Grand Trunk
Pacific Railway maps of Willow River and detailed

CITY LEAGUE HOCKEY
By the score of 4-2 the Contractors
defeated the Lumbermen at hockey
ou Thursday evening last. The game
was nip and tuck all the way through
and it was not until the last two
minutes that the winning earn had
more than a one goal lead.
bowled was the deciding game won
by the cup holders, and Mart. Summers, who threw the lucky ball, was
carried away on the shoulders of his
enthusiastic team mates.
The first game went to the Bon
Tons, while the Social club boys
captured the second and lost the
third game by 9 points after leading
for the greater part of the "rubber,"
only the splendid finish of Summers
robbing them ot victory.

A WILD STORY
One of the fstest and most
(stubbornly contested hockey games
seen at the local rink, was
sadly interrupted on Monday night
when the lights went out, Robarts
and the Merchants were fighting it
out, with the former team leading
by the acore of 2-1 and but four
minutes had been played ln the second half when they were forced to
quit. The remaining eleven minutes
will be played on Sunday next, beginning at  12.30.
The present, standing of the city-
league is as follows:
Won Lost
Robarts     '_> o
Merchants    1 i
Contractors    1 2
Lumbei men  1 2
On Sunday last the Bankers met
and defeated the juniors by the score
of 8 to 1, Fay, for the juniors, was
weak in goal, and a return match
will be held shortly when George
Williams, tho boys' regular goal tender, will be on hand and the juniors
are confident that they will win If
again given the opportunity to cross
swords with tlle money lenders.
Some strange things find their way
into print at times. A few weeks
ago an Italian laborer told in Winnipeg of a disaster on the Fraser
River near this point in which 75
men lost their lives. The Associated
Press wired the editor of this paper
asking for confirmation or denial of
the story. An emphatic denial was
sent at once, but in the meantime
the yarn had been sent out broadcast
over the Associated Press wires, and
published in most of the daily papers in Canada. Here it is, clipped
from the Edmonton Capital, of January 6:
Winnipeg, Jan. 6.—Suffering from
injuries received in a wreck on the
Fraser River in which it is claimed
75 men lost their lives, Angelo Pug-
liese applied at the immigration office yesterday for aid.
He came to Canada six months ago,
and securing work with the Grand
Trunk Pacific, he was sent with many
others to the end of steel in British
Columbia. For a time, he was kept
busy in the vicinity of Fort George,
but early in November with 100
other laborers he was sent further
west, the trip requiring the party to
cross the Fraser River.
In spite of the swift flowing current, something not much feared by
the experienced river men, the entire
party, he said, was loaded into a
large boat for the trip across the
river.
The navigation was difficult, the
boat became unmanageable and
crashed into a large rock in the
centre of the stream. The frail
craft was dashed to pieces and the
human cargo plunged into the torrent. The greatest confusion prevailed.
The strength of the current made
swimming impossible and the struggling men were either dashed to
death on the rocks or carried to their
death by the flood.
Of the five score men that boarded
the boat, only 25 were taken from
the water alive, and many of these
were more or less seriously injured,
and only five bodies were recovered.
Pugliese was numbered among the
injured having his feet and neck
badly injured. He was in the hospital at Edmonton for some time, and
when discharged came to Winnipeg.
Pugliese stated that no inquiry of
any kind had ever been made as to
the cause of the accident.
Angelo was probably in bad need
of aid when he told this story, but
it still remains a fact that more
"fake" newspaper items appear under a Winnipeg date line than any-
other in Canada.

Vancouver, B. C, Jan. 17.—
(Special.)—In a business review of
the past year, conditions appear more
favorable than many people imagine.
Vancouver, whose condition reflects
fairly well that of tho province as
a whole, had about the same trade
through tho custom house in 1913 as
in 1912. Inland revenue returns
were but ff*ghtly decreased. Building permits fell off somewhat but
.10,000,000 is still a splendid record
for a city of this class. The mineral
yield of the province is said to be
the second largest on record. The
fisheries set a new mark and this Is
The Nechaco Farmers' Institute
held their first annual meeting January 3, at Milne's Landing. They had
an attendance of 65, out of a membership of 145, of whom 25 are
ladies,, four ladies being present.
The following are the officers for
the ensuing year:
President, J. B. Armishaw, Chilco;
vice-president, H. Bowers, Nechaco;
scc.-treas., John Macfie, Nechaco;
directors, Mr. S. Milne, Chilco; Mr.
J. D. Charleson, Nechaco; Mr. W. C.
Lampitt, Nechaco; Mr. B. Connelly,
Chilco; Mr. Deha Metyr, Chilco; Mr.
H. Bellis, Mapes; Mr. H. J. Goldie,
Chilco; Mr, V. J. Reid, Chilco.
The president addressed the meeting and referred to the difficulty of
getting together, to the great benefit the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway
will be to the Nechaco Valley in the
near future, and to the cosmopolitan
nature of the gathering and the good
feeling existing between all nationalities.
The treasurer's report showed a
balance to the credit of the Institute
of $246.75.
The sec.-treas., John Macfie, was
elected to represent the Institute at
Victoria at the Central Farmers'
convention on January 26-28. After
a discussion on pure bred stock the
sec.-treas. was instructed to get information from the deportment
about the price of same.
There was a discussion on the appointment of a road superintendent
but the meeting decided to take no
action in the matter.
As they have some difficulty In
getting good water on some of the
ranches in the Nechaco Valley the
secretary was requested to write
and find out if the government
would assist in getting in a boring
machine. The meeting then adjourned
