PRINCE GEORGE, BRITISH COLUMBIA, FRIDAY, AUGUST 27, 1915.
Price Five Cents
Over a Hundred Harvesters
Left for Saskatchewan Today
Commander-in-Chief of the Italian Army and His Son.
One hundred and twenty-five
men, residents of this city and
district, left here this morning
for the harvest fields of Saskatchewan. Every man looked perfectly able to do his share in
helping to garner the record crop
now being reaped on the prairies.
A special rate of one cent a mile
had been granted by the Grand
Trunk Pacific and many pre-emptors in the district were pleased
to take advantage of this opportunity to gather in some of the
big wages reported to be existent
for harvesters.
Also on board this morning's
train were over 200 harvesters
from Vancouver, who were taking advantage of a cheap rate
from the terminal city to the
Saskatchewan wheat fields.
Arrangements had been completed last week between the
railway officials and the Dominion
government officials for this
special rate, and many came in
from the surrounding country to
enlist for the harvest.
A special government agent,
Mr. E. J. Cleven, arrived here
early in the week to issue certificates to bona-fide harvesters entitling them to the cheap fare to
the prairies. Yesterday morning
just as he was about to look over
the applicants for certificates a
message arrived from the Winnipeg Immigration  Commissioner
stating that more men were not
needed in Saskatchewan owing
to the large influx of harvesters
from the eastern provinces.
About 150 men were then here
waiting for the inauguration of
the cheap fare, and Mr. Cleven
had no other recourse but to refuse to issue the required certificates. Many of the men had
spent several days in town at
considerable expense, and the indignation expressed on every side
was pardonable under the circumstances.
Immediately on receipt of the
news Mr. H. L. Gurwell, the
Grand Trunk agent here, sent a
long message toW. E. Duperow,
passenger traffic manager of the
G. T. P. at Winnipeg, giving him
an outline of the situation and
informing him of the disappointment of so large a body of men.
The wires were out of commission a part of yesterday but immediately communication was restored a reply came from Mr.
Duperow authorizing Mr. Gurwell
to issue the tickets at the low
rate, with the express understanding, however, that no guarantee of employment was attached. The prompt action of Mr.
Gurwell and the ready acquiescence of the railway company no
doubt, saved the city authorities
from having to deal with a situation requiring considerable tact.
Recruiting for
Western Scottish
Many Offering Themselves for
Service in  Colonel  Ross'
Regiment.
According to present indications W. F. Cooke will have little
trouble in making up his complement of a hundred men authorized by wire from Colonel Ross
of the 67th battalion of Western
Scottish. Mr. Cooke is anxiously
awaiting further word from Col.
Ross or the arrival of a commissioned officer to make out the
attestation forms for those now
ready to be sworn in. Every day
sees the arrival of one or more
husky frontiersmen from the
silent places of the great north
ready to take up the Empire's
fight in whatever quarter they
may be directed. The delay in
the receipt of specific orders is
consequently irritating to many
of those who are eager to get
into training at once. Definite
orders cannot be long delayed,
however, and Mr, Cooke is hourly expecting instructions by wire.
Following is a list of those
who have signed the preliminary
roll and passed the medical examination. There are many
others ready to enlist the moment
specific instructions arrive:
James Bolton, Harry Fallon,
(ieo. Webster, S. J. Wilton, Walter Adams, A. Crozier, Monte
Fraser, Harry Chapman, Russell
Craig, G. E. Railton, W. Fraser,
A. Lineham, A. F. Cumming,
Wallace McMullen, W. S. Everett, A. Haggith, H. McLaughlin
and G. A. Bown (Vanderhoof),
Neville Montgomery, Jack Wilson, Reg. Booth, R. L. Condy,
S. Borland, Bill Hedges.
Find Valuable Minerals
C. R. Jiu'eline, of Kelly, Douglas &
Co., nnd lloli Jamicsoi'i, formerly of
Stewart, were roaming the hills
around Skeena Crossing a few days
hro, when they ran across one of the
biggest deposits of ehalcoyrite ever
discovered up the Skeena. It was a
real ten-strike. They had gone to visit
a claim, but a fog: settled down. After
considerable wandering they found
themselves across the divide from
where they expected to find their holdings, and it was while there they made
the Iiie; strike. I'rince Rupert Empire.
Two New Schools
Now Under Way.
Bronger & Flynn, contractors
for the building of the new two-
room school on the Millar portion
of the city, are already at work
on their contract and hope to
have the new building completed
in record time.
Mason and Henderson were the
successful tenderers for the erection of the four-room school on
Block 178, and will commence
operations next Monday. Both
schools will be of the most modern construction and are designed
according to the standard plans
of the educational department.
The city schools re-opened for
the fall term on Mondav last in
the four cottages on Fourth
Avenue, with an increased attendance over last term. At present there is an average attendance of about 155.
The new schools will be ready
for occupation by December 1st.

Rome prior to starting for the for the front. General Cadorna has
made extensive plans for the invasion of Austria, a most difficult
undertaking in view of the mountain passes they must take.
To Render Waterways of
North Easily Navigable
Mr. J. Heatheott, Dominion
hydrographic engineer, leaves today with a party of men for the
Stuart and Tatche lakes country.
Mr. Heatheott has orders from
the Dominion public works department to open up a navigable
channel in the rapids of Tatche
river, a short stream joining the
Stuart and Tatche lakes. When
this is accomplished 150 miles of
navigable waterways will be
opened up, furnishing a cheap
and easy route to the Omineca
and Babine mining fields. The
only route now open to those
sections is over the pack trail
from Hazelton. More than half
the transportation costs will be
saved by the water route.
Frank Freeman, a man famous
throughout British Columbia for
his skill in clearing out river obstructions, will have charge of
the work on Tatche rapids, which
is a guarantee that the job will
be well performed.
Mr. F. W. Aylmer, of the Dominion department of public
works, left yesterday for the
Peace river country to gather
data for a report to the government on the necessity of improving the waterways of the north
country.
Advertising of Money Bylaws
Cost the Ratepayers an Even $500
Chief Lake Settlers
Want Public School
The settlers of the Chief Lake
district have petitioned the government to establish a public
school in their thriving settlement, Already there are eleven
children of school age there, and
as ten is the lowest requisite
number of school children for
the establishment of a government school, it is thought their
petition will be favored at once.
School Inspector Gower, of Victoria, is in the district and will
visit and report on the Chit f
Lake application,
Grizzly Cubs Will Be
Mascots For Western Scots.
Bill Hedges, a frontiersman
from Findlay Forks arrived in
town this week and immediately
volunteered for service with the
Western Scots, now being recruited here by W. F. Cooke. A
pair of grizzly cubs captured in
the north country were brought
down by Hedges, who hopes to
obtain the consent of the military
authorities to have the grizzlies
accompany the regiment as mascots.
It cost the city of Prince George
an even five hundred dollars to
advertise the money bylaws for
the statutory period covering ten
days. This bill was presented
and ratified at Monday night's
meeting of the city council.
Mayor Gillett in explanation of
the amount involved said that the
manager of the News, the paper
honored with the city's patronage, had informed him that the
amount should really be $950,00,
but a reduction had been made
owing to the hard times and the
scarcity of money in the city
treasury. He was certain the
city would appreciate the magnanimity of the News.
Aid, Ellis, chairman of the finance committee, had nothing to
say on the matter. He is a stockholder and holds a position on
the paoer in question.
It was a strange omission on
the part of the News that in its
report of the council's deliberations, occupying several columns
of Tuesday's issue, that no mention whatever was made of the
$500 advertising account.
The bylaws as published in the
News occupied a Bpace of 66
inches, and nine insertions were
sufficient to meet the., requirements of the law. Had the bylaws been set-up in type ordinarily used for advertisements of
this kind, the space occupied
would not have exceeded 40 inches. The Herald offers this knowledge gratis to the ratepayers
and council of Prince George out
of its wealth of practical experience. It is not a case of sour
grapes with the Herald. The
municipal act provides that such
advertising must appear in a
daily paper if such be published
in the district.
Road Completed
To Willow River.
Splendid Highway Now Connects
This City With Willow River
and the East.
The new government wagon
road to Willow River by way of
Six-Mile Lake, which has been
under construction since early
spring, is now completed, Foreman Frank Freeman, who was
in charge of the work, has built
a splendid highway according to
the statement of Al. Young, who
had the honor of driving the first
automobile over the new road.
There are no heavy grades and
the road runs through a remarkably fertile district where several
settlers are located. With good
transportation facilities, agricultural development in that district
promises to be greatly stimulated. A number of short roads
tributary to the main highway
are being opened up by settlers
located further back. Settlement
will in consequence be greatly
increased now that every facility
is furnished the people for the
easy marketing of produce.
There is no better judge of
roads in the country than Al.
Young, who, before he took to
the automobile, was considered
the most expert stage driver in
the Cariboo. Al. piloted the first
six-horse mail stage coach into
South Fort George over the old
Blackwater Trail which was then
little better than a rabbit track.
German Transports Sunk by Russians;
Thousands of Men Drowned in Gulf;
Greatest German Dreadnought Sunk
WINNIPEG, August 25.-Uncensored letters from
the old country dated August 12th and received in the
city today indicate that the great movement of Kitchener's
new army has commenced, lt is stated that from Salisbury Plain alone 200,000 troops had been dispatched tothe
front, and this is typical of many other camps.
PETROGRAD, August 25.-Three German transports
were sunk by Russian land batteries near Pernau, at the
north end of the (lulf of Riga, and several thousand German troops drowned according to semi-official announcement in the Novo Vremya today.
The (iermans attempted to land troops at Cainash.
south of Pernau, in lighters, simultaneous with the naval
attack, which ended in the destruction of the battle cruiser
Moltke and seven other German warships.
The Russian fire, concentrated against the lighters at
first, was shifted toward the transports after the lighters
had been destroyed and was equally successful with the
larger vessels.
PETROGRAD, August 24.-Confirmation of the report that British submarines sank the (lerman dreadnaught Moltke in the (iulf of Riga was given out here
today by the Russian admiralty. Russian warships also
sank or damaged two German cruisers and eight torpedo
boats. It was admitted, however, that the Russian gunboat Sivutch was sank in a brilliant fight in the course of
which she sank a Herman torpedo boat while she herself
was in flames and sinking. One hundred and fifty men
went down with the Sivutch.
LONDON, August 26.-The severity of the recent
fighting in the Dardanelles is shown by the fact that in
the past eight days there have been nearly 800 casualties
among the officers of the British forces, the Australians
and New Zealanders bearing the brunt of the losses. The
casualty list issued yesterday contained the names of 122
officers and 1350 men.
Artillery Will
Decide the Issue.
Montreal, Aug. 24,—The Montreal Gazette's London correspondent telegraphs:
"My men, man for man, are
superior to the Germans in fighting qualities, and the endurance
of my guns is better than the
German guns. For instance, my
13 inch shell is equivalent to
their 17 inch. The issue is now
between Krupps and Birmingham."
"This is the message Sir John
French asks us to convey to the
people of England," said James
O'Grady, M.P., who has returned
from a visit to the trenches, to a
Daily News representative last
night. O'Grady went out to
France with Labor colleagues on
a mission connected with the removal of the international trade
union bureau from Berlin.
"This mission," he said, "was
successful, inasmuch as the
French trade unionist agreed
with England and America as to
the desirability of removing the
trade bureau to Switzerland, in
order that the international union
should, after the war, continue
to operate in its old effective way.
It now remains to be seen what
attitude (lerman trade unionists
will adopt towards the proposal
as they constitute a formidable
section of the bureau, which they
initiated."
Waiting For Facts
To Decide Action.
Washington, Aug. 23.—Official
announcement was made at the
White House today "That as soon
as all the facts regarding the
Arabic are ascertained, our course
of action will be determined,"
This official announcement was
given out by Secretary Tumulty
after a conference with President
Wilson. Mr. Tumulty said the
statement was all he was authorized to say.
The statement bore out previous unofficial statements made at
the White House and at the state
department that President Wilson had not determined what action the American government
would take and would suspend
judgment while awaiting receipt
of all facts available from all
sources.
President Wilson has given up
for the present his plans to re-
i turn  to his  summer  home at
I Cornish, N. H., and will remain
I in Washington,   He had hoped
i to go to Cornish late this week.
The president does not expect to
j hold the usual cabinet meeting
tomorrow.   All but three of the
members are out of the city.   A
; meeting will be held as soon as
'conclusive evidence  about   the
sinking of the Arabic is received.
Exchange of Lots
For City Schools.
Secretary Leathley, of the city
school board, yesterday received
a wire from Mr, Hansard, of the
legal department of the (I rand
Trunk Pacific, stating that the
railway company was agreeable
to relinquish their portion of
Block 178, consisting of 18 lots,
to the city for school purposes.
This allows an entire block for
the new four-room school about
to be erected. The Grand Trunk
will receive in exchange for their
property an equal number of
government lots elsewhere in the
city.
Sustains Severe Injuries
From Infuriated Bull
Charles March, of Mud River,
was brought into the city hospital this week suffering from a
broken leg and a severely bruised body, the result of an encounter with a vicious bull on the
ranch of George Harris. Fortunately for March the bull was of
the hornless variety or the result
would have been even more serious. He was knocked to the
ground by the bull's first assault,
the vicious brute then attacking
him with head and hoofs.
The timely arrival of Mr. Harris,
who heard his cries for help,
saved March from being trampled to death. LIsnED WEEKLY BY TIIE NORTHERN

"The people, of course, have

The statement that the mayor

vigorously denied by the members ee;' the local board. If Mayor
Gillett so represented himself at
the capital in securing a promised
change of plans, he should be
brought up short and an explanation demanded.
The gist of the matter is that
Gillett aspires to be the dictator,
the pooh-bah of the town. Like

THE SOLDIER'S FUTURE.
Earl Grey is busily engaged in
Britain on a scheme for the welfare of the ex-soldier, the man
who, after the war, will return
to civil life,, says the World. His
Lordship speaks of sending thou-
sands of British ex-soldiers to
Canada, of placing them on the
land here and in a position where
their future livelihood will be
assured. The scheme has everything to commend it, but to be
successful it will require the cooperation of the Canadian and
British governments. No haphazard plan of shipping ex-soldiers to the Dominion irrespective
of their suitability for the new
■life before them, will have a
chance of success.
Canada has a problem of her
own in this regard. Those of the
Dominion troops who suffer per-

City Council Had Busy Evening
and Varied Matters were
Acted Upon.
There were two vacant seals
at Monday night's meeting of
the City Council. Aid. Ruggies
is still in the east on a business
trip and Aid. Livingstone was
also out of the city.
Mr. Fred Hood waited on the
council in regard to the need of
a city scale. He pointed out that
farmers, bringing hay into the
city at present were handicapped
in that there were no facilities
for weighing. The mayor stated
that he was making arrangements for the inslallation of a
platform scale at the rear of the
fire hall.
Mr. Hood also drew attention
to the need for some concerted
action in order that a market
might be secured for the large
quantity of potatoes that would
be for sale in the district this
fall. He thought the industry
should be encouraged, as this
district was second to none in the
quality of tubers produced, Mayor Gillett named the following as
a committee to investigate and
report on the means of securing
an outside market for this produce : Aldermen Eagel, Ellis,
and Parks, and Messrs. Hood,
Austin and Porter.
Mr. Alien interviewed the
board regarding the present city
dumping ground, which he stated
was a public nuisance. The
provincial sanitary inspector also
wrote the council on the question
and suggested that the council
apply to the government for
D.L. 1431 instead of the present
site on the McGregor addition.
A letter was read from the
deputy minister of public works
in reply to a request from the
council for some action in regard

In connection with the issuance of city bonds, the assessor
brought in a report that a rough
estimate of city improvements
was as follows: City Streets, 5
miles; sidewalks, 3 miles; railway tracks in city limits, 10
miles.
Indemnity Bylaw No. 22 providing salaries for the mayor
and aldermen was given three
readings and will be finally passed
next Monday night. It provides
for an annual salary of .$1200 for
the mayor and $210 for the aldermen, payable monthly.
