SIDEWALK TB DEPOT
NOW UNDER WAY
Within the next week the sidewalk from South Fort George to
the railway depot at the foot of
George street will be an accomplished fact, that is the prediction of Superintendent Jack
Henry, who has charge of the
work. This four-foot plank highway will join the walk already
built to the Government offices
and continue via Bowser antl
Queen streets to connect up with
the George street sidewalk. The
workmen commenced on the
George street end and are working this way.
Funds for this public convenience were all contributed locally,
and the completed job will be
joyously hailed by the hundreds
who have occasion daily to travel
between here and Prince George.

VANCOUVER MERCHANTS
PROMISE ACTION
The informal linking up of steel on Canada's greatest transcontinental railway took
place at a point near Mile 373, about 2 miles east of Fort Fraser, on Monday, April 6,
at 12:30. About twenty railway officials from Winnipeg arrived on the scene early in
the day by special train, and although no public announcement had been made and no
invitations issued there were over 1500 persons present at the history-making ceremony.
The track-laying gangs had previously arranged to have a mile of grade left open for
a speed contest between the gangs from east and west. Both teams started off together, but it was soon evident that the men from the east had more order and system
in their work and were easy winners with 14 minutes to spare. A large flag pole was
erected at the centre post where the large crowd gathered, and the official photographer
and moving picture man got into position. The eastern crew were headed by Foreman
Dempsey. When they came together there was a scene of great enthusiasm and the
Union Jack was hoisted to the top of the pole. There remained still about half a length
of rail to connect and this was cut and set by Mr. Egan in about three minutes. The
hist spikes, about nine on each rail, were driven by the several officials attending.
The special containing the G.T.P. officials left immediately after the ceremony on its
way to Prince Rupert. °
The personnel of the party was
as follows: Morley Donaldson,
vice-president and general man-
ager: Ceo, W. Caye. assistant to
the vice-president; H. H. Hansard, solicitor for the company;
W, LeB. Ross, local treasurer, of
Winnipeg; J.Rosevear, auditor of
disbursements, Montreal. J. A.
Heaman, assistant to chief engineer; G, W. Robb, superintendent of motive power. Tran-
scona;Man., J. L. Holgson,master
car builder, Transcona, H.E.Bis-
sell, right-of-way and claims
agent. Winnipeg; Guy C. Dunn,
divisional engineer, Winnipeg
B. B, Smith, manager ot telegraphs, Montreal; James Gorman,  superintendent u.  ~ _
and sleeping cars, Winnipeg.
H. A. K. Drury, engineer of
the hoard of railway commissioners, was also a member. Other
well-known officials, including
B. B. Kelliher, chief engineer.
In an interview before the
ceremony Vice-president Donaldson was optimistic of the
Canadian west. He said that
d;rr .. *he past week the G.T.P.
had shipped to Prince George
alone no less than seven thousand
tons of settlers' effects. This
statement will give some idea to
the rank and file of the rapidity
with wliich settlers are pouring
into the country,
Mr, Donaldson expressed the
opinion that the great development within the next few years
would be within a radius of five
hundred miles west and northwest of Edmonton. He made
especial mention of one district,
that lying diagonally across from
the south of the Nechaco river
into the Peace rivcr country.
"It is splendid country, well
watered, picturesque and with
an unlimited amount ot good serviceable lumber," said the general manager of the G.T.P.
Continuing, Mr. Domaldson
said 100 miles of the Pacific and
Oreat Eastern railway had been
completed from its western
end and that Foley, Welch and
■Stewart would shortly begin construction from Prince George
end of the line. He expressed
the opinion that this,line, which
is being financed by the British
Columbia government, would be
completed by the spring of 1916,
Directing his conversation along
commercial lines, Mr. Donaldson
spoke of the ill effects that every
c!t.v experienced following aboom.
Be hoped that Prince George and
other western cities would not
be "boomed" too much, but that
0-ey would undergo steady and
substantial development. He
believed that conditions would
be a great deal brighter this year
and that money would not be so
tight,
He considered that the com-
Pktion of the G. T. P. and
especially the line being financed
by the McBride government
w"uld mean a great deal to the
whole of western Canada.
Seven teams will be in the race
for the Northern Lumber & Mercantile Cup, emblematic of the
baseball championship of new
il C. This is the information
recently received by the trustees
of the cup. The teams will represent Fort Praser, McBride,
Willow River, Quesnel, South
P'ort George, Prince George and
Central Fort George, The trustees will meet during the next
few days to draw up a schedule
for the season.
South Fort George has held the
cup for three seasons against the
teams of Qusenel and Central,
and have never been forced to
extend themselves to retain the
championship. This year, however, there promises to be keen
competition all down the line'for

Eighty thousand acres of land,
adjacent to the Grand Trunk
Pacific Railway, which is to be
completed from ocean to ocean
during the coming Summer, a
large proportion bordering on
the railroad, will be open to preemption in the valley of the
South Fork of the Fraser River
in June, according to an announcement made by the Hon.
William R. Ross, Minister of
Lands,
When the work of building the
Grand Trun'k Pacific Railway
was begun, this valley, which
contains a large amount of agricultural land, favorably situated,
was placed in reserve, In 1907
a reserve was created, under
which a strip of six miles, covering the valley, was reserved for
the pre-emptor. Now that the
railroad is completed, the agricultural lands are being opened
to the settler.
The land being opened to
settlement is in two parts, the
Eastern half stretching on either
side of McBride, the young city
ninety miles from the eastern
border of the province, where a
divisional point has been created,
car shops, large yards, etc., are
being built, and a city is in its
infancy. The western half
stretches from Willow station, on
the G. T. P., not far east from
Prince George, to join the other
part of the tracf.
The lots in the Eastern half
will be opened to entry by preemption on June 1, at 9 a. m., a
special office being opened there
by the land commissioner of the
district for one week, in order to
give those who seek a homestead
an opportunity to file their records at the nearest city to the
land. After a week records will
be made at the office of
the Government agent at South
Fort George. The lots in the
Western half will be opened to
entry by pre-emption on June 15,
at 9 a. m,, at the office of the
Government agent at South Fort
George.
McBride where the lots in the
Eastern half will be opened for a
week, beginning at 9 a. m, on
June 1, was the first townsite
laid out in the district, and the
first post-office in the district was
created there. It is a bustling
young town, and, as it lies in the
heart of the agricultural land, it
is expected to become a great
centre. It is 145 miles from
Prince G Jorge, 90 miles from the
Eastern border of the province,
and 345 miles from Edmonton,
The town, named in honor of
British Columbia's Premier, is
both the passenger and freight
divisional point, and a large
amount of money has been expended by the railway company
to make preparations for the
future, all its construction being
of a large type. The yards cover
eight miles, and the station,
yards, roundhouse, shops, etc.,
are the largest between Winnipeg and Prince Rupert.   The G.
ing houses and three or four
well stocked stores.
The valley of the South Fork
of the Fraser, in which the large
area of land, set aside when the
railroad was begun and held until
transportation facilities were
provided for the pre-emptor,
varies in width from one to two
miles in its upper part at Tete
Jaune Cache tb five miles at McBride, six at Goat River, and
about ten at the canyon. It lies
at a mean altitude of 2,250 feet
above the sea level.
The main industry of a great
part of the valley, other than
farming, will be lumbering, and
this should reach considerable
proportions. There is a large
amount of good timber, and the
lumber mills built to handle it,together with the towns along the
railroad between Prince George
and Mount Robson Park, which,
before long will prove a great
tourist resort, reached from the
far West through thi3 valley,
should prove a ready market for
farm produce from this district.
A large mill, with a daily capacity of 100,000 feet has been
built by the upper Fraser Mills
Company at Mile 142, near Dome
Creek. Another big mill _s projected for Mile 128, and a number of other sites are being
sought for mill purposes.

biggest struggle of their lives
for the trade of the country in
the vicinity of Ashcroft and the
route traversed by the automobiles and stages of the company
represented by Mr, West. To
further their increased interest
in securing the trade of the
beauty spots in and about Ashcroft the Vancouver citizens will
start an investigation as to how
goods can be shipped to that
country at the same rate they
can be shipped from Edmonton.
The board of trade has taken the
matter up and the project is being supported by all of the leading merchants on the coast.
GISCOMBE TO SUMMIT LAKE
Emmett Haynes, who, with his
partner, Mr. Wood, is starting in
the business of transporting supplies from Giscombe Portage to
Summit Lake, on the Peace river
water route, is in town today
making preparations for the
season's business. "Shorty"
Haynes, as he is familiarly
known, is a well-known old-timer
in this district, and has a knowledge of the upper country and
the vagaries of river navigation
possessed by few. Incidentally
it might be mentioned that
"Shorty" is some inches over six
feet in height.

are all to the effect that the baseball boys are working out at
every opportunity and that plenty
of talent is irrsight for the different team..
A meeting of the local club
was held last evening with manager Merriam as director Considerable preliminary business
was put through and a good deal
of enthusiasm  was manifested.
It was decided to fence the
ball park and to put the grounds
in first-class condition and this
work will be proceeded with at
once. New uniforms and coats
have also been ordered. Nearly
all of last year's players are
available for this season, and a
total squad of at least twenty
will try out for the different positions.
NO WESTWARD TRAFFIC
Nothing can be learned at the
Grand Trunk offices as to the
probable date of passenger and
traffic opening from here westward. Scores of people are now
here eagerly awaiting the opportunity of train travel to points
between here and Prince Rupert. The consensus of opinion
among railway men is that travel wiil not be public for at least
two months.
Bronirer & Flynn, building con-
traetors, will commence early next
week on the construction of a 20,000
gallon water tank at the foot of Fourth street. The structure will be built
for the Hotel Northern, and will be
connected with the hotel by pipes laid
along Fourth street,
Superintendent Willis J. West
of the B. C. Express company
was in town this week and left
on Tuesday's stage for Quesnel,
where his company's boats are
being fixed up for the coming
season. He states that as soon
as the river is fit for navigation,
whieh from its present appearance is likely to be within the
next fortnight, the steamer B X
will resume her old run of last
year, bringing in the mail and
passengers on Mondays and
Thursdays. The first load of
her sister ship, the B C Express
will consist of some thirty head
of the best horses in possession
of the company which will be
used improving the Millar
section of Prince George and
also for sale.
WASHING'GOLD FROM SANDBARS
Washing gold from the Fraser
river sandbars was once a profitable form of employment in
Cariboo, and ten dollars in dust
was not considered a big day's
production from crudely-fashioned rockers. Yesterday a Chinaman was observed about a mile
below town industriously washing the bars which the low water
has laid bare. Inquiries as to
his luck were met by an iniorao-
bile countenance and a gruff "no
savvy." He doubtless was encouraged by the result of his
labors for he is back on the job
today. -Here is the solution of
the unemployed problem.

Wesley & Wiggins have oi e led

Prince George.
At the Foley, Welch & Stewart
cache, on the Nechaco river,
workmen are now busily engaged
in preparing the company's three
steamboats, the Conveyor, Operator and the Robert C Hammond, for launching. If the
warm weather of the past few
days continues another week the
rivers will be clear of ice and the
busy season of river transportation will get off to an early start,
Thousands of tons of contractors' equipment and supplies are
now lying in the big warehouse
at Prince George and on cars in
the yards awaiting shipment
down river to the contracts already let on the Pacific Great
Eastern, and trainloads of additional supplies and material will
be rushed from eastern outfitting centres as soon as the word
goes forth that navigation on the
Fraser is open,
Commodore Johnson,of Foley's
fleet, has discovered that the
temporary bridge spanning the
Fraser at this point will not
allow his steamers to emerge
from their quiet retreat up the
Nechaco, so a span of the structure must be removed to allow
the big boats to pass. The plans
of the steel structure now being
built alongside', the temporary
bridge, provide for a lift to
allow the passage of boats, but
as it will probably be mid-season
before the big bridge is completed, river traffic will necessarily
be confined to points below the
bridge except for the small gasoline boats. A landing depot
where trains can unload their
cargo for shipment down river
will therefore be necessary at
some point below the bridge, and
a spur from the main line to
some suitable landing on the
Fraser will probably be commenced within a few days.

While we are a god-fearing bunch
down at Kennedy-Blair's, and have
an implicit faith in the morals
taught us in those famous old passages which say; "Do unto others
as you would have others do unto
you"; and that all things shall pan
out for the good to those who continue to hike on the straight and
narrow trail. Yet we have a profound respect for that old proverb
which says : Keep your powder dry.
Figuratively speaking, we have
been keeping our powder dry in
making preparation for the great
spring trade, just now beginning to
move.
You know that we have a great intuitive capacity, we knew a year
atro that they would be digging the
Pig out of South Fort George by the
spring, and in all probability that
they would be digging it north before the end of summer. These
presentments have already materialized.
We knew that it would require a
great many thousand men to complete this project, and that every
man would require a hat, a suit of
underwear, a top shirt, a pair of
suspenders, a jumper, a pair of
overalls, a pair of sox, a pair of
shots, and Beveral pounds of snuff,
and we sent away and ordered these
goods accordingly.
We knew that each contractor would
require a complete line of camp
graniteware, besides axes, shovels,
picks, mattocks, etc., and we sent
away and ordered accordingly.
We knew that there would be a
great bunch of classy people arrive
here from the cities that have been
brought up with a silver spoon, and
that the slightest deviation from the
whims of a pampered palate would
.produce a shock as a flutter of the
earth upon a seismagraph, and we
sent away and ordered our fancy
groceries accordingly.
We knew that there would be a
great drop in the freight rates and
that we would have an immense
turnover and we cut our prices accordingly. And if you will come
into our store and let us talk it over
we shall certainly convince you accordingly.
P. S. —Don't forget our gents' furnishing and shoe store in the Hlair
Building, where you Bhall find your
humble servant who shall treat you
accordingly.
Sincerely yours,

Fifteen nationalities are represented by 206 prisoners at
the Alberta penitentiary in Edmonton, according to the annual
report just issued by Warden
McCauley. The United States
heads the list with 61, Canada
being second with 58. From
other countries are England, 28;
Austria, 16; Ireland, 10; Russia,
9; Germany, 6; Sweden, 4; Italy,
Australia, 2; and Mexico,
France, South Africa and China,
1 each. Most of the inmates
give their occupation as farmers
md laborers. McCauley reports
;hat the prisioners completed the
-uilding of the warden's house,
the wing cell block and the foundation for the workshops, the
material being supplied by the
penitentiary brick yards. The
arge farm surrounding the institution supplied all the vegetables and the coal mined on the
ground was used as fuel. The
per capita cost of the prisoners
is $120 a year. This is a dollar
day more that he earns,

IN THE FAR NORTH
Angus Brabant, inspector of
the Hudson's Bay company's
trading posts in the Mackenzie
River district, which annually
send more than $1,000,000 worth
of fine furs to the marts cf the
world, announced on his arrival
in Edmonton Monday, that large
crops of potatoes, beets, turnips
il other garden vegetables
were harvested last season at the
18 posts. Most of these are well
within  the  Arctic circle, from
500 to 2,100 miles north of Edmonton. He reports there are
not less than 500 buffaloes in the
two herds seen recently in the
north country, besides hundreds
of c iriboo and deer of all varieties. Mr. Brabant is of the
opinion that thousands of beef
cattle could be raised in the northern latitudes, and with that
end in view he will take a small
herd into "the farthest north"
district as soon as river navigation opens this spring. He will
also experiment with grains for
feeding purposes'
LARGE SALE OF LAND
One of the largest deals in the
Province of British Columbia dur-

a-ies inland from the port of
Bella Ccola to Mr. F. A, Mott,
mayor of Oakland.
Mr. Mott's idea is to send sett-
't'ls up to his holdings and locate
them there as the district offers
splendid agricultural possibilities. The land will Le divided into small holdings and sold cheaply to bona fide settlers.
Jt is understood that Mr. Mott
will add largely to his holdings
