War's Heavy Toll
of Human Life.
Dr. Jefferson D. Gibson of
Denver, president of the Ameri-
can Association of Clinical Research, declared in an address at
Loss (1 rea ter During Week
Than Any Similar Period.
In the last seven days the war has
taken a heavier toll of human life than
in any previous period, Careful calculations show that not less than half
a million soldiers have been killed,

she will be greatly missed.
The Balkan States are evidencing a tendency to again become a
seething cauldron of bloodshed.
The situation is a strange one.
Bulgaria threatens an attack upon
Serbia, the ally of Great Britain,
yet her premier states that under
:no circumstances  will  Bulgaria
.offer opposition to Great Britain.
i Bulgaria is acting quite humanly
! in wishing to take advantage of
Ithe best opportunity that pre-
jsents itself, but the time is fast
I approaching when she will i -
evitably be drawn into the struggle on one side or the other. She
can hardly  make war upon an
ally of the Entente powers and
expect these powers to look on in
a disinterested manner.  Premier
Radoslavoff recently stated that,
"There has been no agreement
either with the central powers or
with Turkey.   My aim for the
present   is   to   remain   neutral,
Never will Bulgaria throw in her

death from tuberculosis from
vital statistics.
Dr. Gibson said that recent
discoveries by which the presence
of tubercular tendencies can be
detected even before the germs
appear in the sputum, together
with a later and higher development of the x-ray, will in a short
time remove tuberculosis from

LONDON.-In the Champagne region the French are

Good work is being done by the aviators in dropping
bombs on the railway lines used by the enemy, thus preventing the bringing up of men and supplies.

had no intention of opposing Great Britain, the allied
forces are taking steps to protect Serbia and Greece from
Bulgarian invasion.

events or personal items escape the notice of a newspaper staff.
Sometimes an oversight of this kind is attributed to indifference,

Allies Damage
German Works.
French Artillery Effectively
Bombards Enemy.
Paris, Oct. 1.—Heavy damage
to German defensive works at
various points by French artillery
fire was reported in today's communique from the French war
In the Champagne district the
communique stated the Germans
are continuing the use of asphyxiating shells, but owing to the
precautions adopted by the
French, the shells' effectiveness
has been greatly lessened.
The terms of the new American
loan of half n billion dollars to the
Allies is not so large as was anticipated, but nevertheless this amount
will have a great effect on exchange
1 und will obviate any chance of the
• suspension of .supplying munitions
und goods to the allied powers. The
rate charged for the loan will be 5V4
per cent., which, with tlie backing of
the British and French governments,
will make the subscribing to the loan
an attractive proposition.
Bound For Alaska.
Passenger* on the last westbound train hic'u led two well-
known citizens of South Fort
Oeorge, Charlie Wiley and Bi)l#
Morris. Both men have been
with the Northern Hotel for several years. Bound for Anchorage,
Alaska, they have answered the
call of the newest mushroom
town on the coast. Unlike other
Alaskan towns of short life,
Anchorage gives promise of developing into into a good city.
Neither hot nor cold climates
have any effect on a person's
age. ln spite of the difference
in race, in food, in habits of life,
the savage in the South Sea
Islands has almost exactly as
long a life as the African pigmy
or the giant Fuegians. What is
more, in spite of all the skill and
science of modern civilization,
the average duration of human
life is not a whit longer in the
United-States than it is in a
tropical jungle or a blizzard-
swept tundra.
The Eskimo lives largely on
blubber, the Hindoo eats sparingly of rice, the Andaman Islander
consumes raw fish, the modern
epicure his "hot bird and cold
bottle," yet each one of these
changes that diverse diet into
just exactly the amount of fuel
his body needs to keep it going
the same average length of time.
The occupations of men are as
diverse as their food, yet in this
also the average remains the
same. The Norwegians are largely a race of sailors antl fishermen, the Swiss but seldom behold the sea. yet as a nation the
one is not more favored than the
other with length of life.
The Department of Marine and
Fisheries of Canada, in its report on the list of vessels built
and registered in Canada during
1914. gives a total new tonnage
of 43,346, the largest figure in
fourteen years. Of this amount,
23,167 tons was credited to Ontario, which has been advancing
as a ship-owning and ship-building province since the development of trade on the tireat Lakes
began to call for a larger class of
steamers than had been employed previously. Taking $30 a ton
as the average value of vessels
of all kinds, the total for those
on the Canadian registry on Dec.
21, was $27,972,000.
No Change in Service.
Although the fall and winter
schedule of the Grand Trunk
Pacilic goes into effect to-merrow
evening, there will be no change
in the service from Edmonton to
Prince George and Prince Rupert,
The three trains a week each
way will be continued and the
time of arrival and departure
will be the same as at present.

escaped from the local jail recently, has been captured at

Canada's Wheat
Would Feed Old
Land For Year.
"Tickle the land in Canada and
it will laugh into smiling harvests." This saying is being fulfilled to the letter this year. It
was stated yesterday to a London
Daily News reporter by a representative of the high commision-
er for Canada that export of
wheat from that country to this
would probably exceed 200,000, -
000 bushels.
In other words, Canada is able
to send us almost enough wheat
ti provide every mmi, woman,
and child in the British Isles with
sufficient bread for a year.
Last year the wheat exports
from the Dominion only totaled
94,000,000 bushels, but the early
stages of the war no doubt had
some bearing on these figures.
This season the harvest is simply
phenomenal, and the Postmaster
General of Canada, who has just
returned from the great producing areas of the west, states that
the crop is the best that has been
seen for twenty years. Fl'RLISHF.D WEEKLY BV THF. Vn_TH. R.

From Coast to Albertan Boundary There is a Constantly Changing Panorama of
Mighty Mountains, Swift Rivers, Placid Lakes, and Rolling Plateaux.
The construction of a new railroad invariably opens up some
interesting country.   It is safe
to say that the building of the
Grand   Trunk   Pacific   Railway
; across Central British Columbia
has opened up a section of new
| country unequalled in scenic at-
| tractions   and   commercial   possibilities.   As yet the main highway of travel is the railroad, but
wagon-roads are being constructed all along the line and in many
places roads fit for automobile;
traffic are found.
After leaving Jasper Park, on I
the eastern boundary of the ]
province, the traveler approach- '■
es the famous Mount Robson dis-1
trict, with its incomparable
mountain scenery and soon the
waters of the Upper Fraser River
found elsewhere. Especially is
it desired to foster the good impression already held of our own
The homeseeker may here
make his home in a pleasant valley where the productivity of the
soil has been proven beyond
question. The country is new
and while rapid progress is being
made, there are sorne of the discomforts of a new country.
Good roads are being built into
the outlying parts, schools are
being supplied wherever the demand is great enough and government assistance is being extended to the farmers. There
are still some good pre-emptions
to be obtained, and high-class
purchased land can be secured on
easy terms.    The demand for
known and there are no destructive storms of any kind. Excessive rainfall or snowfall, or
drought, are never met with.
Careful study of existing conditions will conclusively prove that
in the Prince George district will
be found everything that goes to
make for pleasure and success in
the lives of those seeking new
Many years agb rich mineral
strikes were made throughout
the interior of the province, but
after the rich placers had been
apparently worked out there
came a period of comparative inactivity in mining circles, which
is at an end. Renewed interest
in the mineral wealth of this and
other districts is strongly in evidence, and the prospector here
ments may be made for using the
large library that the First Presbyterian Church of Fort George
has built up. Further announcement of this will be made.
The announcement that hereafter American ships will not be
sunk in defiance of the laws of
war synchronizes with a report
that 67 German submarines have
been sunk, including most or all
of the newer and more powerful
ones. Berlin's latest concession
seems to be that as its pirate
fleet has been destroyed it will
suspend operations.
Shipping Produce
On P.G.E. Railway
Special arrangements are being made with the railway officials of the P. fl. E. for the
handling of produce from Lillooet
to Vancouver. Lillooet is only a
seven-hours' journey, from Vancouver, and with low freight
rates the farmers of that section
will be able to patronize the city
market. According as the steel
reaches further north greater
quantities of hay, grain, fruit,
vegetables and dairy products
will reach the coast markets from
the rich agricultural districts of
the interior.

are reached. From Tete Jaune
Cache, the head of steamboat
navigation on the Fraser, through
to Hazelton, the head of navigation on the Skeena River, the
route follows a series of valleys
of great fertility, while from
Hazelton to Prince Rupert, the
coast terminus of the line, the
railroad follows the course of the
Skeena River through a mountainous country of great beauty
and grandeur.
It is not the intention of the
writer to revel in descriptions of
the wonders of the new transcontinental line. That has been
most capably done by those
whose business it is to bring before the notice of possible travelers the attractions of the new
route. It is the intention though,
to convince the reader, if possible, of the fact that Central
British Columbia offers a combination of inducements to the
homeseeker, prospector, sportsman and business man, not to be
everything the farmer can grow
far exceeds the supply and the
same condition will continue to
exist for an indefinite time.
F. A. Talbot, in his book, "The
New Garden of Canada," says :
"Owing to the valley (Fraser
River Valley from Prince George
to Tete Jaune Cache) being shel
tered on all sides, there is no
doubt but that the next ten years
will witness a tremendous expansion, and that what is now
primeval forest will be converted
into an immense garden. The
lumberjack will come first; the
timber cruiser spying out new
resources for lumber is already
active; then, as the land is cleared, the farmer will come in and
turn the rich dark top-soil to valuable account in the raising of
Added to the appeal of fertile
agricultural land the homseeker
will find here a climate positively
unequalled on the continent. Extremes of heat and cold are un-
finds himself in almost virgin
territory. Supplies are cheap,
good roads and trails lead into
the most out-of-the-way places,
making the pursuit of the yellow
metal anything but the arduous
undertaking it is in many places.
It is safe to predict that within
the next few years Central British Columbia will be the scene of
a placer strike that will startle
the world.
As pointed out in a recent issue
of the Herald, the sportsman
cannot do better than make
Prince George his outfitting point
when on a hunting trip. There
is plenty of game to be had, and
the lover of the outdoors who
spends the month of October in
the wilds of this part of the
province will return again,
One of the most interesting
trips that the sjghtseer, in search
of something out of the ordinary,
could wish for, can be had by
making arrangements for a canoe
trip from Tete Jaune Cache to
Prince George, and thence on
down the Fraser to Soda Creek,
at which point he can travel by
auto to Ashcroft, on the Canadian Pacific Railway. First-class
guides, men who are skilled
canoemen, can be secured for this
trip at reasonable wages. The
expense is cheaper than travelling by rail. Big game can be
found along the route and an excellent hunting and canoeing trip
can be combined.

Free Reading Room.
A free reading room has been
opened in the City Hall. The
mayor and council, besides donating $25, have very kindly set
aside a room upstairs, on the left
of the landing, for this purpose.
It will be open for use all day
until 10 o'clock in the evening.
Last winter the reading room
in a store on Third Avenue, was
much appreciated and used. No
doubt the news of its re-opening
in the new quarters will be welcomed by many who desire to
pass a pleasant hour in reading
the latest papers and magazines.

by Andrew Furuseth of San

He declared that better laws
must be devised to protect the

of white sailors would abandon

sea power would pass to the

for sailors was passed.
