Vol. I.   No. 1.
IAN NEEDED IT TDRTJpROt
BOTH THBS PROVINCIAL AND FEDERAL GOVERN M FNTS  ARE   DILATORY IN MATTER OF GRAVE RESPONSIBILITY.
Fort George is in grave need o£ia resident physician. The need is becoming more pressing day by
day, and the demands of the people for a doctor
more obiously justified.
 Even during the present month several examples o'n'n™iess'TFrit^"4U„,,nxesence of a doctor here
might have alleviated before senous^inplfealJCinA,
had set in have resulted in grave danger to life.
The case of Surveyor 0. B. N. Wilkie, who now
lies in a most critical condition in the Kamloop's
hospital with an absess in the throat, brought on
by a case, of tonsi litis, and that of Engineer Daly,
of the Steamer Chilco, who was obliged to leave
here on the last boat for Quensel to obtain medical attention for a case of blood poisoning, are.
instances of the consequences which might be'
avoided by the presence of a physician here.
The Dominion Government is receiving a report
from Indian Agent McAllan on the requirements
of the Indians here from a medico. We believe
that there is not twenty-five per cent of the Indians on Reserve No. 1, here who are not in need of
, a physician's services for some malady or other,
and we trust that Mr. McAllan will report in favor
of a Federal subsidy to provide for the medical
care of the Indians, and so assist the support of a
doctor in Fort George.
The Provincial Government omitted Fort George
from the estimates for the present fiscal year
when granting subsidies for "Hospitals and Charities" although a grant of $500 was allowed for
Quensel, and of $300 for Fraser Lake, and it is to
be urged that this oversight be remedied by the
immediate action of the Government resulting in
provision for a medical man here in the very near
future.
The prospect of over three hundred men, women
and children practically marooned over one hundred miles from a doctor seems too appalling, yet
that will be the sense of the situation after the
season of navigation closes unless the authorities
awaken to a sense of their responsibilities before
that time.
"BRUCE" STARTS SOMETHING
EDIiOR  OF SATURDAY   SUNSET ENTERS
ARENA   OF   CONFLICT   WITH
SATURDAY NIGHT.
The Saturday Sunset of August 13th, contained
the observations and prognostications of John P.
McConnell, written under the non de plume of
"Bruce," who spent a week here last month
Bruce absorbed some very positive ideas during
his week's stay in Fort George, which may be oi
interest to some of liis Similkameen readers who
don't know much about the subject, but to the
people of South Fort George who represent about
four-fifths of the population of this place today his
articles are more or less a joke.
The object of Bruce's article was apparently to
show that Toronto Saturday Night has willfully
maligned the Natural Resources Security Company;
that the Indian reserve is unfit for townsite purposes, and that the Natural Resources Security
Company have the only sure-thing townsite proportion in this vicinity..
We beg to differ.
We have devoted some space elsewhere to our
opinion of Saturday Night's articles with regard to
Fort. George, yet we have avoided giving any opinion for or against the townsites of the Natural
Resources Security Company. Why? Because as
yet these townsites are principally stump-littered
avenues through the virgin timber -behind the
Indian reserve; what they will be two years from
now remains to be seen, and we believe that on the
settlement of the Indian reserve question their
fate largely depends.
The Natural Resources Security Company, have
.acquired the name "Fort George." What's in a
name? Very much in this particular instance.
Bruce quotes with indignation the following excerpt from Saturday Night:
"The real townsite of Fort George belongs to
the Grand Trunk Pacific, and the Natural Resour-
«tx» Security Company, never will own a foot of it,

THE IBET ffiDIE
A DESCRIPTION, GIVING ACREAGE, LOCATION AND DEVELOPMENT WORK OF
VARIOUS SUB-DIVISIONS.
The various subdivision at Fort''George today
total an area of about thirl&n hundred and seventy
acres on the point of land formed by the,junction
of the Fraser and Nechaco rivers. The subdivisions with their respective acreage are owned
_ as follows: The South J^;t.. Jkft^R-.te'iYnS'i'Cp',".
owned" by tne Northern Development Company,
comprising the Hamilton tudTappage additions, of
about 147 acres, situated about forty chains south
of the Indian reserve, and immediately south of
the, Hudson Bay Company's property. Adjoining
this .townsite to the south lies'the Collins-addition,
a strip of eighty acres of land owned by the Mercantile Trust Company, of Vancouver. Commencing at the Nechaco river front, immediately adjoining the Indian reserve of thirteen hundred and
sixty-six acres, on its >.:est boundary begin the
holdings of the Natural Resources Security Com-
peny, registered as the townsites of Fort George,
Central Fort George, and the McGregor addition.
Their various lots, as sub-divided, cover an area of
about eleven hundred and fifty acres.
On none of these sub-divisions has development
work been done with the exception of the Northern Development and the Natural Resources Security Company'-s properties.
At South Fort George development work is proceeding very rapidly. The townsite company have
cleared most of their site of all brush and have
graded streets ranging ram sixty-six to eighty
feet in width, running through the blocks. Sixteen foot alleyways cut uj the lots between the
.streets.
Practically all the business in connection with
most of the additions, witi, the sale of lands in the
Fort George section; the banks, stores, the lumber
industry, steamboat warehousing, postoffice mail
distribution, etc., is canied on at South Fort
George today, and the ev.-T-increasing number of
business houses opening their doors to the public
on this site is convincing evidence of its thorough
legitimacy.
South Fort George is beautifully situated on the
terraced benches of the Fraser river, the first or
lower bench affording splendid water-front facilities for steamboats. .Or the second bench the
present town is located at an average elevation, of
about twenty feet above high water level.
At Fort George, the townsite of the Natural Resources Security Company, considerable development work has been accomplished by the owners.
A large stretch of the site, fronting the Nechaco
river, has been cleared of timber, and two long
streets, Fraser and Central avenues have been
graded. At the Northern end of Central avenue
several buildings are erected, or .are in course of
construction. The telephone exchange is located
there, together with a store, large hotel building,
and the office of the Fort George Tribune.
The site is at an elevation of about a hundred
feet above river level, the high banks making the
water front of little value for commercial purposes.
It is generally believed that the Grand Trunk
Pacific people have acquired the .Indian Reserve
No. 1. for future townsite purposes. This however, is purely rumor, as the much involved question of Indian titles is as yet far from being settled
between the Provincial and Federal authorities.
We believe, however, that the railroad company
will undoubtedly gain title to this land eventually,
and will locate their townsite, their yai'ds and their
station on it. The reserjfe contains a splendid
stretch of dand for townsite purposes, although a
portion of tbemorthern end lies too low to be utilised until protected from inundation in years of
extremely high water.
To tEe south of the Indian reservation lies the
ninety-two acres of the Hudson's Bay Company,
behind which 132 acres locally known as the Bird
land is situated. This later property is owned by
the Northern Developemcnt Company, and will
connect their South Fort George townsite with the
Indian reserve, which willadvance the South Fort
George interests in the ovui! o\' the Reserve being
townsil id by the railway i jtmpany,
The Hudson's Pay land ii! perhaps-the most valuable property in Fori Georie owing to its location
and natural advantages anil it will probably be acquired by the Grand Trunt Pacific and placed on
the market together with the Indian reserveas the
railroad company's townsite.
Several other properties are now being subdivided und will be placed on the market.
Within a radius of three miles from the junction
of the Eraser and Nechaco rivers, on the west
bank of the Fraser river, lands for sub-division
have been sold by their original owners at prices
ranging from $125 to $500 in acre.
Lets in South Fort George are selling at an average price of $500 per lot and are in brisk demand.

TORONTO   SCRIBE  IN   ATTACKING   FORT
GEORGE TOWNSITE  GETS   MIXED.
'"Toronto Saturday Nighy in its issue of Julj
30th, continues Itsvattack against the operations -d
the Natural Regow-ic^".Security Company in-thai?
Jfcawasit#on the Nechaco River here.
We are not defending this company against thes*
'"articles, which.are based on indiscriminate statements in their advertising litrature, but.in this last
effort the scribe has drifted off his course, ;'Hk
article, with its accompanying illustrations, impresses anyone cognizant oi the situation here,
with the impression that Saturday Night's article
may have been written the morning.after.
The article proper is prefaced by a warning regarding highly advertised land schemes,where the
public are led to purchase lots on the strengthoi
advertised statements,and reference is made to
that famous flim-flam land .'company, the'Canada-
■ Cuba to point the moral
Illustrating the .article are three photographs
showing views of the temporary bank buildings.and
of the North end of Second Street on the South
Fort George townsite. The article is headed "Shack?
and Forest at Fort Gecrge." and whilst the-writer
refers to the fact that supplies are brought in owr
an expensive route for a long ■ distance he is unwittingly depreciating Fort George at large by
seeking to justify his statements regarding misrepresentations he finds in the advertising of the.
Natural Resourcs Security Co,
Taking into proper consideration the facts to
which our contemporary refers; that we are remotely situated here; that transportation is an
expensive problem, and that all things are necessarily primative at the preient time owing tc the
town's youth,the buildings shown in that journal's
illustration? are even yet a credit to.South Fort
George. Perhaps Saturday Night is not aware that
at the time their correspondent sent in the published photographs of the diminutive rough lumber
shacks which serve the Traders Bank of Canada.,
and the Bank of British North America he*-e as
quarters, arrangements were progressing for the
erection of the new buildings now nearing completion ; or that the ' 'Photograph of Fort George today" as reproduced, represented a scene on Seconfl
Avenue during the celebrations of July the first, for
which a sum of one thousand dollars was collected
for prizes in the space of twenty four -hours. This
happened at South Fort George, a townsite the existence of which our contemporary is apparently
ignorant of, and yet is getting mixed up with Fori
George, the townsite owned by the Natural Resources people.
For the benefit of Toronto Saturday Night we
submit the following information:
South Fort George is .populated today by about
260 people. At Fort George, [Natural Resources
Security Co.] the total population dees not exceed
seventy people, many of whom are employees.
The Natural Resources Co., have a perfectly
legitimate, but at present practically unpopulated
townsite of great area. The value of their various
sub-divisions., at their selling prices, exclusive of the
government blocks, is approximately $1,681,800.
The claim of this company to the original town-
site of Fort George is technically indisputable as
some of the land they purchased is registered, in
the Lands Department at Victoria under that name,
giving them the same indisputable title to it as a
name for a patent medicine protected by a copyright.
To one of the statements in the article referred
to we wish to take unqualified exception. In refer-
ing to the 48,000 acres of land acquired by the
Natural Resources Security Co.,near Quesnel "Saturday Night" states that there is "no surety of any
hay or grain crops in any season unless the tedious
and expensive process of irrigating the land is first
resorted to." The correspondent who gave out that
statement to our contemporary is a poor observer.
The Quesnel district is notably one in which irrigation is unnecessary, and is not resorted to at all.
In attacking any corporation for resorting to
methods which a journalist believes it to be in the
publ c terest to expose, the writer should be sure
of th i ibility of his source of information, and
should not make statements to uphold his opinions
which may in any way depreciate the value of a
great country in its infancy.

PUBLISHED BY THE
NORTHERN INTERIOR PRINTING CO,
.'. I.I. DANllO.L. PRESIDENT
Devoted    to   the   interests   of   Fort
George and  the entire North-
cm  Interior.
,1. B. DANIBLli,  Editor.
August 20, L910,
present the intial issue of
! i George Herald to ihe
• as a further tribute to the
, ami future city from
i it derives its name. It
will lie our aim during the
life of this publication to give
our leaders a true and accurate
account of the progress and development of this place and.
great district convergent io it.
Fori George, geograj Ideally the
hub of the province, has during
the | ast year been thrown into
the limelight of publicity by the
Canadian  and American  press,
and also by the extensive adver-
tising of corporations interested
in the development of their land
holdings.     The results of this
publicity are very evident here.
The investing public, recogni ling
in Fort George the point of importance on the located line of
the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway
through the British Columbian
mainland, lost no time in converting the poplar covered river-
benches into the nucelus of a
future city.   Here at South Fort
George today,  where less than
one  year  ago  an   insignificant
brush-lined  trail led to a small
trading post,   the   South   Fort
George townsite presents to the
sight a typically western frontier
town in process of evolution.
It is a regretable fact that
much of the advertising issued
by the interested corporations,
conveys an utterly false impression of the existing conditions
here today, Land companies
have '. 'd people to believe that
they would find here great
stretches of land practically
ready for the plow, whereas their
acres are in many cases covered
with dense growths of timber
on tin undulating topogra] ny.
Tow i es have been advertised as prosperous ci ii
the-making, which on inves
establish at Fort George also.
Our intentions would have been
carried into effect long ago had
it not been for the coming of
British Columbia's most brilliant
journalist John Houston, who
arrived here and spread the white
wings of Ins Tribune broadcast
over the land on November the
sixth of last year. Houston's
work was having visible ■ fleet
iur the good and advancement oi
Fort George when illness overtook him resulting in his death.
The tragedy of John Houston's
end, fighting his sickness by ihe
force of a great will, rather than
discontinue publication and secure medical aid; waiting for
relief three hundred miles from
a railroad until death claimed
him, a victim of a super-human
task accomplished at the cost of
life; this shall be a tragedy which
will quicken the pulse of every
journalist who lifts a pen to follow the trail he blazed, and seeking the truth, shall write it
as it is.
The Herald politically will
champion the conservative cause;
and will stand for the suppression of lawlessness, but primarily
for the advancement of South
Fort George where we have located, of Fort George as we forsee
it ten years hence, covering we
believe the whole of the areas
now divided and sub-divided.
We are here to light for the
rights of the people. For the
rights of the pioneer business
men and others who have rights
through residence here. To fight
all the time, to a finish. The
Herald's to be a bull-dog if it
only lasts a minute.

On July 30th last, one hun-
dred and thirty-eight voices of
the Deity, called together by instruction of the Government
Agent, George Walker, who personally posted the notices of the
meeting at Fort George, voted
for the location of the Government offices at South Fort
George. Only one vote was cast in
favor of another location. A telegram has been received from one
of our members which reads:
"Advices received from Provincial Secretary that the Government has decided to locate their
offices at South Fort George."

forbidden to sell, liquor to minors,

; mixed lip in a case of mistaken
there. Joseph Quah is not and
never has been the chief of the Fort
George Indians. The honor belongs to
one, Chief Louie Stanaslas. Quah is a
wily old red-skin who has very little
influence.
What we resent is the Sunset's article is Bruce's reference to South Fort
George, lie refers to this town as be-
in/ located from a mile and a half to
two miles south of the G. T. P. Now,
neither Bruce nor anyone else yet
knows just where the G. T. P. will
cross ihe Fraser river here, and the
South Fort George townsite lies but
forty chains south of the best portion
of the Indian reserve.
hi our next issue we will devote more
npaee to this subject. The Herald is
here to tell the people all the facts.
We will not manufacture carefully
worded articles for the protection of
rich companies whether I hey need them
or not. The editor of this paper has
lived in or near Fort George for the
past live years and doesn't care a damn
for the seven-day opinion of that forceful writer, Bruce, on this particular
subject.
If Toronto Saturday Night, the Natural Resources Security Company, the
Grand Trunk Pacific Railway, and Bruce
want to "start something" over the
merits or demerits of Fort George we
want lo-referee, but let them beware of
involving South Fort George, a town
that is rapidly building up in spite of
conflicting interests, on its own merits.
