Ottawa, August 5.—The Railway Commission has refus-
! ed the application os the G.T.P. to reconsider Order No.
22995, directing that company to establish a station between Oak and Ash streets, Prince George, and insists
upon the company carrying out the existing order.
The citizens of Prince George.and the members of the
city council are by no means convinced that the information conveyed in the above telegram, received yesterday,
is the last word on the station location question. It does
mean, however, that the railway company has been eliminated as a party to the dispute. A telegram has been
forwarded to the railway commissioners, signed by every
member of the aldermanic board, asking that the city of
Prince George be granted a hearing before the commis-
I sioners. The order as outlined in the telegram above was
issued prior to this city's incorporation upon the representations of George J. Hammond, promoter of the subdivisions lying to the west of the city limits. The order
is mauifestly unfair to the existing city. As Mr. Hammond's representations should now be eliminated in the
question that is one for the city of Prince George alone to
decide, it is believed that the railway commissioners will
see only justice in granting the request of the city's
Citizens of Prince George in Service Commemorative of

The Rex Theatre was crowded
to the doors on Wednesday evening when Mayor Gillett, chairman
of the gathering of Prince George
citizens to commemorate the first
anniversary of the declaration of
war, opened the ceremonies.
His Worship expressed his satisfaction at the large gathering
and stated that the war in which
we were now engaged was a

V nother chapter in  the  the
ever-recurring depot site matter
occured at the Monday night's
»meeting of the city council when
j Aid. Ruggies moved a resolution
; asking the board of railway com-
! missioners to order the immedi-
I ate erection of the railway station at the foot of George Street.
yhe six pldermen all voted in
favor of the resolution.   Mayor
Gillett recorded his vote against
'i the proposal.
Aid, Ruggies, the mover of
this resolution has recently returned from a trip to Winnipeg
where he went to interview the
railway officials on securing a
portion of block 178. owned by
the railway company, for school
purposes. He told the council
that he had become convinced
that if the council of Prince
George continued their fight
againt the railway company in
the carrying out of their plans
for city development "we would
all soon have to get out." In
conversation with Morley Donaldson, general manager of the railway company, that gentleman
had stated that when the people
of Prince George wanted anything they were not afraid to ask
for it, but when the railway
people wanted any consideration
they were turned down. The
company officials claimed to be
able to close out the purchasers
of city property, who were behind in their payments, on 30
days' notice.
Aid. Ruggies, who hai been
the first lieutenant of Mayor
(lillett in the various actions opposing the (leorge Street site,
confessed an entire change of
mind on the subject following
his interview with the railway
officials. He is now convinced
that if Prince George is to grow
into the metropolis we all hope
to see, co-operation with the railway company was the plan to be
followed to attain this end. "The
railway company is all we've got
at the present," said the alderman.
Mayor Gillett was curious to
learn the reason of the alderman's
sudden change of front, and expressed a doubt as to whether
the resolution before the council
would have any weight. "Why
not have a plebiscite on the matter ?" asked the mayor.
Aid. Ruggies was in favor of
passing the resolution now and
taking a plebiscite later.
Aid,  Eagel, who also had op
posed the (ieorge Street site,
said he would support the resolution, and hoped it was the last
time the question would come before the council.
A letter was read from G. J.
Hammond, promoter of the Fort
(ieorge townsites, in which he
blamed certain people of South
Fort George and Prince George
for the non-settlement of the
depot location. He could forsee
awful misfortune in the sale of
city bonds, and told of having
spent a million dollars in advertising his sale of lots in Fort
George. The letter was filed
without comment.
Mac/line Gun Squad
Composed of Old-Timers,
W. F. Cooke, who was promised a machine gun as a donation
from Mr. Charles Millar, is now
in communication with the militia authorities with the prospect
of organizing a machine gun
squad of twelve men in Prince
George. Mr. Cooke's idea is to
have the squad composed entirely
of old-timers from here who are
anxious to "do their bit" at the
front. Pending word from officials at Vernon, Mr. Cooke is besieged by numbers of prospective

Seven more recruits for the

Mining in Cariboo
Is Very Active.
Hundreds of Prospectors Investigating Old Creeks-Company Dredging.
Vancouver, Aug. 2.- From information lately received from
Cariboo the outlook for that part
of the province appears to be
even better than in those days
when the name and fame of Cariboo placed the name British
Columbia on the map.
Hundreds of prospectors are at
the present time looking over the
old gold fields and in a great
many cases with the most satisfactory results. Many claims
which were abandoned in the
sixties on account of the heavy
expense of workirg them in
those days, are again being taken
up. This great revival has been
made possible by the building of
the Grand Trunk Pacific, which
has made a material reduction in
the cost of provisions to the
present day prospector and miner
in contrast to the high prices
charged the pioneer miners of
the sixties.
Reports from Williams, Antler,
Keithley and other creeks, whose
productiveness in 1862 caused the
great rush to this province, bear
evidence ot a return to the golden
days. A company supposed to
be the Guggenheims, obtained
control of all the claims on Williams Creek, and this year began
operations with two large dredging scows, and have now been
working them for some months.
In early days it was illegal to
undermine a miner's cabin, but
nowadays conditions have chang
ed and cabins and every other
building, many of which are still
inhabited, are being removed and
the ground beneath them taken
into the maws of the huge dredges and worked with splendid results.
That the results are gratifying
may be easily understood when
it was common in the olden days
to obtain great results from contiguous ground. For instance,
the Burns Company, on the same
creek and quite close to some of
the cabins, obtained $140,000
from fifty feet of ground. The

Warsaw underwent violent attacks
from the air. On Monday a fleet of
German aeroplanes dropped more than
twenty bombs on the city, killing
seven persons and wounding fourteen.
Two of the aircraft were hit by the
high-angle guns, which tired 100 shells
at the invaders.
In the Mitau-Bausk district, the
German forces under General Von
Buelow nre making the most terrific
efforts against the Russian line, using
cavalry forces on a scale hitherto unheard of in warfare.
All along the battle front in Poland,
except at the extreme ends, the Germans and Austrians are using enormous numbers of guns to batter their
wny through the Russian lines. Al a
single point they concentrated 1.10
cannon, with which they swept the
Russian trenches with a hurricane of
shot and shell that could not be withstood. The ammunition resources
seemed inexhaustible.
In the sector of Wyszkow, thirty
miles northeast of Warsaw, where the
Austro-German forces of General Von
Gallwitz were locked with the Russians, the Russians were mure than
holding their own when artillery reinforcements arrived and the Germans turned the duy with their guns.
The critical situation at Riga is increased by the evacuation of the city
by the non-military elements of the
population, the banks being the last lo
leave. German cavalry forces are
scouring the country in such numbers
that the Wnrsnw-I'etrograd line al
ways is in danger of being cut.
At Kupisch, seventy miles west of
Dvinsk, heavy lighting is in progress,
with thc Russians resisting stubbornly, as the breaking of the defence here
would mean the early loss of Dvinsk,
the most important junction ol' the
Petrograd-Warsaw railroad.
Crack Austrian Regiment
Almost Wiped Out
Turin, Aug. 4.—The crack regiment
of Kaiser Jaegers, or the Emperor's
Own Tyrolese Chasseurs, whom Emperor Francis Joseph passed in review
at Schoenbrunn, July IS, immediately
before their departure for the Austrian front on the Isonzo, were almost
completely wiped out early on the
morning of August I, on the Curso
The (lower of the imperial army
faced the fury uf the guns with magnificent bulldog courage, but they
were mowed down almost to the last

forward in one of their impetuous
dashes, charging the foe simultaneously on the front and flank, and causing them to (lee in the wildest disorder. Six officers and Ml other prisoners were taken.
Revolution and Riots
Reported in Portugal
Lisbon, Aug. 1.—Sensational and
alarming reports are current in thc
•npital of no less than three separate
revolutions in Portugal. Riots and
assassinations are of daily occurrence.
Political feeling has completely disorganized tiie army and clashes between the royal and the republican
supporters and other factions are frequent.
Yesterday a quartermaster from
the engineers barracks shot and killed
three sergeants of his regiment and
then committed suicide. The sergeants
were members of a secret society
known as the "White Ants," aud bad
denounced the quartermaster as belonging to the republican faction
which is accused of conspiring against
the present government.
Germans Have Given Up
Hope cf Roumania's Help
Berlin, Aug. •!.—A warning that nothing can be expected from Roumania
is conveyed to the readers of the
rages Zeitung in an editorial this
morning by Count Ernest Reventlow.
Mis article summarizes the situation
in the following paragraph:
"Those friendly relations with Roumania made sacred by tradition—and,
on the German side, by lirm confidence—can hardly longer be considered as existing."
Count Reventlow points out Rnu-
mania's refusal lo permit exports of
grain or to permit  ammunition for
the Turks to pass through il.e lerri-
tory, although Russia was permitted
to trans-ship munitions to Serviu.
He says it has been houed Roumania
would fulfil its treaty obligations or
preserve at leust an upright and well-
wishing neutrality, but that the contrary came to pass. Roumania's neutrality became "malevolent," he as
eierts,  with  a  tendency  to  enter  Ibe
conflict on lhe side nl' Germany's one
"Thc importance of Roumania's aid
to Cermuny and Turkey hus been
greatly lessened, however," Count
Reventlow asserts. Before Russia's
Gnliciun defeat, Roumania would
have been a military factor in co-operating with tlie Muscovites, he says,
but that time is past and her military
and political value us an opponent of
Germany is vanishing. The period
when Roumania could be considered
a leading factor in tho development
of the Balkan slates has gone by, the
article declares.

FRIDAY,   AUGUST  6th,   1915.
In agreement with the recommendation of the local school
trustees and two provincial school
inspectors, the government of
the province has called for tenders for the erection of two
modern school buildings in Prince
(leorge, of two and four rooms
respectively. These schools will,
we are informed by the trustees
give Prince George ample public
and high school accommodation
for the coming year. In addition
.to these new schools a promise
has been obtained from the Department of Education for a
separate high school building to
be erected here next year,
The local Liberal organ has
repeatedly sought during the past
week to make Dolitical capital out
of the statement of a city official
and an opponent of the present
government, (not a member of
the school board and ostensibly
actinR on his own initiative) that
he had succeeded in arranging
with the Victoria authorities for
a six-room building in place of
the four-room one recommended.
Just what argument he advanced
to secure this alleged promise
would be highly interesting,
The trustees very properly resent this official's intrusion on
their rights, as they are the
elected representatives of the
people on all matters pertaining
to local school affairs.
In awswer to the Herald's inquiry for information as to the
trustees' recommendation in the
matter, we have received the
following letter from Mr. A. H.
Mahan, one of the trustees elected in May, Mr. Mahan is now

blessed in the matter of pure
water; wells can be sunk in the

to yours of the ,%th ult., re.
schools at Prince George.
For yuur information I
would say that the School
Board was unanimously in
favor of a four-room school
in the west end, and a two-
room school in the Millar Addition. This was also agreed
to by School Inspector Gower
also School Inspector Murphy
who carefully went over both
school sites; and from the
number of children attending
school we came to the conclusion that the above schools
were sufficient for present
requirements. Also that we
could use one of the rooms
in the four-room school for
high school work for the
present, which we considered
was to the best interests of
the public and of economy
under present conditions."

 — . —— to "The Crisis in B. C."
Shows the Inconsistencies of Moses Cotsworth and Rev.
A. E. Cooke and Makes Strong Defence of the
Government Land Policy.
Vancouver, July 30.—Heaping with
ridicule the author and thi clerical
sponsors of "The Crisis in B. C,'' and
repudiating it as a "venomous piece
of partizar literature," Hon. W. .1
Bowser last night for two and a half
hours entertained a large audience in
the Orpheum theatre. The entire
house, with the exception of the upper
gallery, was crowded with an audience
which included many ladies. Over a
hundred prominent Conservatives, including the members of thc legislature
for Yale, Ocwdney, Chilliwack, Delta,
Similkameen and Kamloops, and the
Conservative candidates and members
for Vancouver, occupied seats on the
platform and an ovation was tendered
the attorney-general both at the opening and the clone of his address.
It was in smiting the enemy hip
and thigh with shafts of ridicule and
satire that thc attorney-general most
pleased the great crowd. Mr. Cotsworth, whose mildest description was
that of "a meddlesome old man" was
himself charged by the attorney-general with profiting while in the government service by the very forms
of landstaking which he condemned
in his pamphlet. Rev. Mr. Cooke
was charged with being a Liberal
hiding under the gown of a clergyman. Both were accused of being
actuated by a desire for office in the
future. The demand for a Royal
Commission was characterized as
preposterous, Hon. Mr. Bowser pointing out that the real place to settle
these matter was at the polls. He
expressed his belief that the people,
who for twelve years had returned
the government to power at the polls,
would express a renewal of that con-
,fidence when the next election was
"I must regret the occasion which
requires me as a minister of the
crown and a member for Vancouver
to reply to these charges at a time
when the empire is in travail and
suffering," said Mr. Bowser, after
Mr. F. W. Welsh in a short speech
had formally opened the meeting.
"Most people would think that men
in holy orders would be better employed in these times in trying to
bring peace and goodwill into the
world. But the political parson is
not the only one to blame. Mr. Macdonald, one of the leaders of the Liberal party, has seen fit to make a
political attack. His idea of a political truce is one that is binding only
on us. He told a meeting here in
the city that the most patriotic thing
to do was to turn the McBride government out. I am not deceived by
his offers of a truce and I am here
tonight to accept the gauntlet thrown
"Land Grabbers."
Dealing with the statements set out
under the heading of "Landgrabbers
and their booty," which he said was
amazing language for a Christian
minister to use, Mr. Bowser said that
there had been either an ignorance or
suppression of material facts. The
lands which had been bought back
from thc C.P.R. of the Columbia &
Western Railway grant at 40 cents
per acre were not worthless lands,
but had been taxed at 50 cents per
acre. It had been bought back at
the request of miners and settlers
whose rights were contested by the
C.P.R. As part of the bargain the
C.P.R. had refunded to the government $401,113 guarantees previously
paid, released the government from
a further guarantee of $.ri0,000, and
taken over the Slocan & Kaslo Railway from the C.N.R. and standardized it.
"Why do they not mention those
facts if they have investigated the
matter, and present their facts in a
non-partizan spirit?" asked Mr. Bowser.
The figures given in the section devoted to the lands department, he
said, were false and misleading. Only
three of the land assessors failed to
report lands in their districts available for preemption within twenty
miles of a road or railroad, and in
each case it was due to misapprehension, Thc assessor at B:\rlicrville had
reported he hud no land within
twenty milcs of a railroad, but that
was because he had no railroad. He
had considerable land, and bad since
issued 2702 records for preemptions
for a total of 520,000 acrcs.
Mr. Bowser declared that instead
of only 10 per cent, of the agricultural land being left to the province
there is still over 50 per cent, belonging to the crown. He produced
an affidavit of the secretary of Ibe
agricultural commission characterizing as untrue in every particular the
statements which Mr. Cotsworth hud
made of the commission.
Cotsworth and the Con.
"One  of the greatest operators of
this system of 'fraudulently acquiring
lands' is our good friend Moses Cotsworth. I'm going to tell you quite a
bit about Moses' history as a specula*
tor with an eye to the main chance,"
continued Mr. Bowser, and the audience listened with renewed interest.
"When we first met Mr. Cotsworth
he had been engaged to regrade the
civil service, and in so doing he learned a bit about our land laws in this
province. There was then some land
at Quatsino, and also residing there
a half-time constable named Sorensen, who got $30 a month for serving
writs und keeping order when required. Cotsworth heard about this land
at Quutsino and he at once decided
he must go and regrade my $30 a
month constable. In fact he could
not do it on one trip. He learned
each time about a bit more land, and
he travelled three or four times at
the public expense to Quatsino to regrade my $30 constable, and finished
up without regrading him at all.
"We had a constable named Cox at
Alberni, who thought that his own
horizon might be raised by the re-
grading official, and who assisted Mr.
Cotsworth by staking the land for
him. That was in 1909. The first
time Moses got 389 acres staked for
himself, located for him by a constable in the public pay by this fraudulent way at the public expense. But
that was not enough. Mr. Cotsworth
decided to get some more, and he had
320 acres staked in the name of his
wife, Keziah Cotsworth. Then he
carried his fraud further by having
another 240 acres staked in the name
of Daisy Edith Cotsworth. Now Moses
thinks it is a fraud to complete, on
a falling market, the purchases he begun on a rising market. (Laughter).
Borrowed a Thousand.
"That was not all Moses did. He
got a loan of a thousand pounds
from a friend in England on the security of this land, which he has
never got title to. He soys now that
he merely got this land to expose the
frauds on the crown. He did this
while he was in the pay of the crown.
Do you believe that explanation? Why
did he keep that secret hidden for
five years? Why did he continue to
make payments if he merely bought
the lands to prove that they were got
by fraud?
"Cotsworth has said there is no
land left for the pre-emptor. Well,
there would not be if Moses had his
way. There was a clause in the Land
Act whereby anyone could protest a
pre-emption, so while Moses was in
Quatsino he heard of a pre-emption
held by a man named Waugh, and
he had a complaint entered. He wrote
to the land agent, 'When cancelled
please notify me us I wish to enter
an application to purchase.' (Laughter).
"This is thc man who denounces
the government for unjust tyranny
over poor pre-emptors. Cox got suspicious and put in the application in
the name of his own wife. (Laughter).
Moses was hoist with his own petard
and had to buy the land from Cox.
"Another time he objected to a
young man named Guy Gilsted, and
wanted it purchased in the name of
Daisy E. Cotsworth. Gilsted was
upheld, however, and the poor pre-
emptor kept his land.   (Applause).
"On another occasion when Moses
was out on a regrading trip he spied
Mon men and wrote to the land agent
that if Cox did not apply to have it
purchased in the name of Frank
Wright Cotsworth. But Frank was
dropped later, and he wanted it in
the name of Grace Cotsworth. Nook,
however, was upheld, and is now in
possession of the property that Cotsworth tried to take from him.
"At this stage I would like to quote
from the pamphlet. It is Moses on
Moses. Moses says, 'Thus the pre
emptor was tricked and the land thief
grew rich.' (Loud laughter,) Thfe
public conscience was debauched and
the speculator became unable to pay
his taxes." (Renewed laughter).
Erroneous Statements.
Many alleged mis-statements or incomplete statements of fact were al
leged by the attorney-general in the
pamphlet. He said that where Mr.
Cotsworth had made it appear that
1051 applications for land in the
name of 117 agents had been made
in one week he had used a date when
the names of two advertising periods
I covering nine weeks were appearing
I in the Gazette.
i "Of the 1051 applications Mr. Cotsworth did not tell you that over 000
I were dropped or disallowed, and only
a little over 300 allowed," added Mr.
Bowser. "He did not tell you that
James Scott, who is down for 74,000
acres, applied for 47,000, and did not
get one acre. He had Robert Cross
down for 61,780 acres, but Cross only
got 1280 acres allowed him. George
M. Beitnes, who is down as applying
for forty-eight coal leases, dropped
forty-two of them, and the other six
were disallowed. Lloyd, who is down
for 26,288 acres, did not proceed with
one of his applications.
"Many of those who did speculate
would be glad to get their 50 cents
an acre back and return the land, but
in the end we will get their 50 cents
and the land also. It was a speculative age, and we took advantage of it
by raising the price of land. If we
had wanted to stand in with the
speculators we would not have raised
the price of lands.
Quoting figures in connection with
the land sales, Mr. Bowser said that
of the 2,274,000 acres wanted in 1913
by seventeen agents, only 929,000 had
been allowed, and 1,329,000 had not
been proceeded with. The land boom
had died out now, and only 45,000
acres were sold in 1914, but in that
year crown grants for 1,300,000 acres
to pre-emptors had been given. It
had been necessary, he added, to
raise revenue by the sale of a portion
of the public domain to meet the
havy cost of developing the province,
and the department at Victoria had
not been affected by political color.
Among the prominent Liberals who
had bought British Columbia lands,
he continued, was Hon. Edward
Brown, provincial treasurer in the
Norris cabinet in Manitoba, who
bought 68,000 acres, and now wanted
returned his $40,000 first payment and
taxes. "The executive council refused
the request. We will have both the
$40,000 and the land, too," said Mr.
Bowser. Mr. J. F. Bledsoe of Alberni
and Stuart Henderson, K.C, were
prominent Liberals- who had large
land holdings in the province, he added.
"Thc pamphlet says," continued the
speaker: "We ask for a thorough investigation hy absolutely reliable and
highly trained investigators.' I smell
Cotsworth. (Laughter,) The hand is
the hand of Esau, but the voice is the
voice of moses. (Renewed laughter).
The pamphlet goes on, 'We demand a
royal commission.' I smell Cooke.
(Laughter). The little Kitsilano congregation could doubtless be persuaded to allow the pastor a holiday
while he serves on the royal com-
