Fire Sweeps Whole
Block in Business Section of Fort George
Hotel Fort George and Annex, Scott's Hotel, Oliver's
Pool Room, Kennedy & Blair's Store, and
other Buildings wiped out
One Life lost. - - Property Loss about $235,000
The most damaging fire that ever visited the district occured
at about 2 o'clock Friday morning when the northernmost block
on Central Avenue, Fort (leorge, was burned to the ground.
The fire originated at or near the Fort George Hotel Annex in
an unknown manner, One of the theories as to its origin is that
a barrel of oil exploded near the Boiler room. An explosion was
distinctly felt by several occupants of the hotel.
Dick Spence, a well known steam-shovel engineer, was the
one victim of the fire, his body being found among the ruins and
interred by the Fort George Undertaking Co. on Friday afternoon.
A number of occupants of the Fort George Hotel had close calls,
reaching the street by the Fire escapes of the building in their
night gowns, loosing all their posessions.
Mr. Scott of the Scott Hotel, being located on the southern
portion of the block, was able to save all his furniture. Considerable stock of the various stores was also saved.
The following is a list ,of the business houses effected, together with some of the approximate losses:
Hotel Fort George and Annex, loss $135,000; insurance $90,000.
Hunter's Barber shop, no insurance.
James & Co., Clothiers,  loss $4,000; no insurance,
Oliver's Pool Room, loss $8,000 with $4,000 insurance. Building
owned by C.W.Moore.    Moore's Hall occupied second floor.
J. P. Robertson, Clothier, loss $7,500.   Owner of building,
C. W. Moore.   Loss $5,000.   No insurance on either.
Fort George Realty & Securities, Loss $3,000; no insurance.
James ;\:cLean, Confectionery.   Loss $1 500; no insurance.
Kennedy, Blair & Co,, Dry Goods and Groceries,  stock loss
$6,000; insurance $4,500.
Pastime Pool Room, estimated loss $5,000.
L. B. Thorn Building, (vacant); loss $4,000.
Bank of Vancouver, loss $6,0000; insurance not known.
Scott's Hotel, loss $7,000; insurance $2,ooo.
The advantage of concrete was once more proved when the
fire burned itself out against the north wall of the new-fireproof
Fyfe building, just completed. Although the fire and heat were
intense from the adjoining Scott Hotel, the fireproof building
proved itself worthy of this term, only one window being cracked.
Great credit must be given the boys who fought the fire on
the north side of Hammond Street. Some of the fronts were badly gutted, especially of the Royal Bank; but the flames were
checked and the buildings saved.
New Commercial Telegraph   G. T. P. and P. G. E.        Latest   War Despatches
Rockefellers to Feed Starving Poor of Belgium
The following statement has
been sent out by the Rockefeller
Foundation, as authorized by
John D. Rockefeller jr., its president:
"It having become clear that
one of the most terrible and appealing effects of the war will
fall upon the non-combatants -
those most innocent of anv part
in the cause or the conduct of
the conflict — the Rockefeller
Foundation has determined to
exert itself to the extent, if nec-
cesary, of millions of dollars for
the relief of non-combatants in
the various countries involved,
"This action is taken as a natural step in fulfilling the chartered purposes of the foundation,
namely, 'to promote the well-
being of mankind throughout the
"The Foundation encountered
considerable difficulty in finding
a capacious vessel, and the pressure upon the market for foodstuffs was such that it was impossible to comply exactly with
Ambassador Page's suggestions
as to proportions. To fill and
despatch the ship called for an
expenditure of about $275,000.
"Therefore, the Massapequa
of the New York and Porto Rico
Steamship Company sailed direct
to Rotterdam, Holland, laden
with 4,000 tons of supplies, consigned to the American Consul."
The cargo consists of:
28,000 barrels of flour.
14,000 packets (100 pounds
each) of rice,
3,000 bags (200 pounds each)
of beans.
1,000 boxes (100 pounds each)
of bacon.
"The British Consul," the
statement goes on, "has kindly
agreed to certify that these supplies are absolutely for the aid of
non-combatants and should not
be delayed in transit.
Another Cargo to Follow Rockefellers
The American Committee on
Belgian Relief at London was
informed by the Burgomaster of
Limbourg that the bread line of
his town had been abandoned,
owing to the exhaustion of the
supply of foodstuffs. The com- j
mittee was advised that the
Rockefeller Foundation wase
shipping a cargo of food and that!
cargoes were also on the way
from Halifax, the gift of Nova
Scotia, and Australia, and that a
food ship was to leave New York
in a few days, The name of the
doner of this last cargo was not
made public by the committee.
South Africa
The South African rebels have
been completely defeated. This
was unavoidable. The revolution was of an exotic nature,
having been organized by the
Germans in the hope that it
would spread. But Great Britain has managed the Boer problem since the defeat of the
Transvaal Uitlanders with such
genius that there was little raw
material out of which to create
an issue. It was thc Teuton inability to understand such a revulsion of feeling that made the
Germans optimistic of involving
the union in a civil strife. That
it would fail was expected by all
who have studied the policy of
the British in dealing with the
racial problemlin the South African colonies.
Service to and from Prince
Rupert over G. T. P. Lines
The Grand Trunk Pacific Telegraph Company announce that
on Thursday November 12th,
their commercial telegraph service to and from Prince Rupert
was inaugurated.
The following new offices were
opened on that date, all located
in British Columbia, west of
Prince George:
Bednesti, Burns Lake. Endako,
Hazelton, Kitwanga, Marten
Lake, Moricetown, New Hazel-
town, Pacific, Shames, Smithers,
Terrace, Tyee, Vanderhoof,
Walcott, Wedgwood.
The inauguration of this service reduces considerably the cost
of telegraphic communication to
and from points in question.
The first message to be transmitted was one from the Mayor
of Prince Rupert addressed to
the Mayor of Winnipeg, reading
as follows:
Prince Rupert, B. C.
Nov. 12, 1914.
T. R. Deacon,
•Mayor Winnipeg.
The city of Prince Rupert,
British Columbia, through me
as mayor sends greetings on
the inauguration of the Grand
Trunk Pacific Commercial Telegraph service from this city
to Winnipeg. Prince Rupert
views this connection as a most
important step towards more
closely binding the province
with this northern part of the
dominion; more particularly
coming, as it does, at such an
important crisis in the history
of our Empire when it is so important that all Canada should
act as a unit.
S. M. Newton, Mayor.
This message was filed at
Prince Rupert at 10:10 a.m„
Central time, and received at
Winnipeg 10:15 a.m. At 11:03
a.m. Mayor Deacon filed the fol-
owing reply:
Winnipeg, Man.,
Nov. 12,1914.
S, M. Newton,
Mayor Prince Rupert.
The city of Winnipeg heartily
reciprocates your kind greetings on the inauguration of the
Grand Trunk Pacific Telegraph
Service. We trust that this
may lead to the opening of a
great volume of new traffic
between the Pacific Coast and
the Orient and our own city.
May the completion of this new
great highway of commerce
lead to the early development
not only of the Interior of
Northern British Columbia but
to the prosperity of all Canada
and to the advantage of the
Empire at large.
T. R. Deacon, Mayor.
This message was transmitted
at 11:09 a.m. and promptly delivered to Mayor  Newton  at
Prince Rupert.
Officials On Way To
Prince George
Developments of importance
are looked for in a few days on
the arrival of J. W. Stewart,
President, and Pat Welch, Contractor and builder of the Pacific
Great Eastern Railway, who will
meet Morley Donaldson, Vice-
President and General Manager
of the Grand Trunk Pacific and
other officials of that road, here
and at Prince George. It is expected that both parties will meet
here by Sunday.
The following week on the 23rd
the Board of Railway Commissioners will meet here to settle
the Station Site question, and it
is freely predicted that very important matters connected with
the G. T, P. and P. G. E. railways, and the development work
of Prince George, and the two
railways in this vicinity, will be
Practical Side of "Back to Mother
Earth" Scheme Now under Way
Under the name of the Alberta
Farm & Colonization Company,
Limited, with a capitalization of
$150,000, divided into 1,000 pref-
erance shares of $100 each and
50,000 common of $1.00 each, a
group of members of the Alberta
legislature and other prominent
"back-to-the-landers" have incorporated.
The purpose of the company is
to buy unimproved farms, stock
them, put them under production
and sell them at one-tenth down
to actual settlers on the crop
payment plan. The company
states that it has already secured
many partially improved farms
which it will be prepared to place
in the hands of settlers at an
early moment, and it has managed to secure an arrangement
by which it re-discounts a large
percentage of its capital outlay,
thereby making it possible to
carry on business on a much
larger scale than the amount
named as capital would imply.
The company says the crying
need is to get settlers on the
land. The average settler upon
coming to the country is,short of
funds and is therefore unable to
buy an improved farm situated
close to railroad and market fa
cilities. This necessitates his
taking up a free homestead. In
order to do this, he must locate
in outlying districts, perhaps a
hundred miles from a railroad, in
order to get good land, as all
available homesteads close to
railroads are already taken up.
What the provinces need most of
all is the settlement of lands
close to markets.

New Contingent to
be Raised
London.—Austrian main army in Galicia in retreat before Russians. Must give decisive battle or surrender.
Two Austrian divisions have been annihilated along the
river Pruth, according to despatch from Bucharest.
A despatch to Reuter's from Petrograd states that news
of the beginning of a battle at Crakow is momentarily
expected. The Germans have been digging trenches and
erecting barbed wire entanglements along the whole Russian-German frontier. It is understood, however, that
their main plan is to retire to their fortresses, Konigsberg,
Loetzen, Posen, Bomberg and others.
An official Pretoria despatch states that Gen. Botha
came into contact with Rebel Gen. DeWitt commando 24
miles east of Winburg Orange River Colony after a forced
night march. The rebels were severely defeated, 2E0
being taken prisoners.
Battle Flanders still far from decision.
London.-Lloyd George addressing Free Church assembly said he hoped call for additional large contingent
of men would be made in a few days. Every country and
town would be given quota to raise. Government expected soon to float largest loan in history, possibly two
hundred million pounds.

Railway Commission
to Sit at Prince George
The Secretary of the South
Fort George Chamber of Commerce on Tuesday last received
the following telegram from A.
D. Cartwright, Secretary to the
Board of Railway Commission:
Ottawa, Ont,
Nov. 9th, 1914.
Board will hold Sitting Prince
George, B.C. Monday, November
Twenty-third, ten o'clock forenoon to consider application to
change location of station at
Prince George.
A. D. Cartwright,
Sec'y. B. R. C
This means that the subject _f
the site for the Prince George
passenger station will once more
be gone into, this time on the
ground by the Railway Commission, and that the people of the
district will ha., a chance to be
heard on the subject. The Railway Commission give ample
notice of their coming in fair
and open fashion; and without
doubt a free and open discussion
and submission of statements of
facts will be welcomed by the
Com nission to ass'st in disposing
of this vexing queition.
Praise Indian Troops
London. — The official press
bureau pays a tribute to the
bravery of the Indian troops now
serving in France and Belgium,
saying that they are performing
a great work notwithstanding
the fact that the nature of the
country in which they are fighting is entirely different from
that to which they are accustom-
General French, commander-
in-chief of the forces in the field,
has expressed himself as greatly
pleased with the bearing of these
troops and has sent the following message to the Indian corps
commander: "Please congratulate your gallant Indian troops
on their gallant conduct and express my gratitude to them."
Russian Victories
It is apparent that Russia has
won its campaign to overcome
the effects of the vigorous advance of the Teutons during the
last month. At the beginning of
the war the Czar's troops overran East Prussia and took po-
session of nearly all Galicia.
Then the Austrians, reinforced
by immense numbers of German
troops beat back the Russians so
rapidly that it seemed as though
all Poland would be conquered.
But the tide turned and Russia
seems to have recovered most of
its lost ground and put her antagonists on the defensive, The
see-saw of victory and defeat
probably will rise and fall many
times before the war is decided;
but the Allies will win.
Boosting B. ('. Natural Resources
A unique form of advertising
the natural resources of British
Columbia with special reference
to the products of the forest has
been adopted ly the provincial
government in the form of a
small piece of 3-ply B. C. fir,
about the size of an ordinary
business caid, bearing printed
information on both sides. One
side contains the following:
British Columbias population
is 539,850. Its production in
1913 was valued as follows:
Agriculture, $24,000,000; lumber,
$30,000,000; mining, $30,000,000;
fisheries, $15,000,000; manufactures, $45,000,000.
The other side bears the following information: The annual
cut of timber in British Columbia
amounts to 2,000,000,000 feet.
There are 794 logging camps and
425 mills employing 60,000 men.
These produce lumber, lath,
shingles, poles, masts, spars,
railway ties, boxes, barrels, wood
pipe, pulp, street paving, sash,
doors, veneer, etc. British Columbia has the greatest stand of
shingle material in the world.
The annual cut exceeds 2,000,-
000,000 shingles. One hundred
and twenty-five new shingle machines were installed in 1914.—

Ottawa.—The pensions which
will be paid to the widows, families and dependents of Canadian
soldiers who may be killed in the
war will be adequate. Also the
pensions which will be paid to
Canadion soldiers who may be
disabled will be sufficient to protect them from want to the end
of their lives.
At a recent meeting of the
Cabinet, a scale of pensions was
suggested. Hon. T. W. Crothers remarked that the British
pension of one shilling per day
was by no means adequate for
Canadians, and the Canadian
pension   would   be considerably

It will probably surprise you,
said a retired colonel of Hussars,
to learn that a cavalry horse
usually enjoys a battle at least
as much as his rider, and displays as much courage in it. He
will chafe and stamp with impatience while waiting the order to

dash forward like a greyhound

wildly. At the moment of con
tact with the enemy he will rear,
striking and biting savagely at
the opposing horses and trampling down the infantry.
When his rider falls, he will
dash along with his fellows and
crash as gallantly into the foe.
In the famous charge of the
Light Brigade, scores of riderless horses swept down the "Valley of Death," .thundering
through the smoke on to the
Russian guns, and galloped back
to safety with the shattered remnant of the few braves that returned. Many a fine steed has
put his rider right when he has
mistaken an order, and has gone
faultlessly through a manoeuvre
in spite of the efforts of his mistaken master to make him do
the wrong thing.
Training the War-Horse.
No, the process of training is
neither long nor difficult. The
first thing is to accustom the
horse to the sound of firing at
close quarters. With this object
he is put on the ground with his
legs tied, and while in this position a pistol is fired close to his
ear, over his back, between his
legs, and so on, until his fear is
overcome. After a few such
lessons it is safe to mount him
with a bridle furnished with a
curb-bit, and under this control
he is taught to stand still while
a pistol or carbine is fired from
his back — the latter naturally
coming last, as both hands are
required in using this weapon.
Then follows sabre-practise on
fertile country.

Kosack smartness with horses
is proverbial. The following incident is related in a liussian
paper printed in New York: An
Austrian General was very anxious to see a "Kosack", having
heard of them a great deal. His
regiment was promptly instructed to capture one and take
him to the General for inspection. A few days later a Kosack
was captured and brought before
the General. Thei.'eneral thereupon gave the prisoner a sword
_ i and waited to see what he would
do, himself remaining seated on
his horse. The Kosack as quick
as lightning jumped on to the
same horse the General was riding and galloped with him to the
Russian camp, where the situation when explained created
great amusement. It appears
the Austrian soldiers were afraid
to shoot for fear of hitting their
A plan somewhat colossal in
its aspects was suggested by the
Canadian Manufacturers' Association and the representatives
of the Boards of Trade as well as
delegates representing farmers'
organizations in Canada. The
farmers' organizations are allied
under the name of the Canadian
Council of Agriculture and embrace the Grange of Ontario and
the Grain Growers' Associations
of Western Canada.
Briefly, the proposal is that
the Dominion Government be
asked jointly by the agricultural,
transportation, banking and manufacturing interests of Canada
to finance a scheme having in
view the objects outlined above.
The farmers are surely coming
into their own. Not only has
the Canadian Manufacturers'
Association joined with the allied
farmers' organizations of the
Dominion to place millions of
acres of new land under cultivation, but they are now discussing
the physical comfort of the farmers, and the methods of securing
greater production from the soil.
It is contemplated to ask the
Dominion Government for a
grant of 51,000.000 to be used in
increasing the wheat acreage of
the west. It is said the plan
proposed is to loan this monev to
farmers who are at present on
the land, full security to be taken for it and the return payments on the loan extended over
a term of years, The farmers in
their turn will be expected to
take the unemployed out of the
cities and put them to work preparing the new areas for seeding.

More Killed than Men.
In the eighteenth century 150
horses fell in battle for every 100
men; from 1800 to 1865 the proportion had fallen to 120; and in
more recent wars the ratio has
been approximately 112 horses
to 100 men. In some charges,
however, the proportion has been
greater, as in that of the Light
Brigade, in which eighty more
horses than men sacrificed their

Tokio is celebrating with an
outburst of popular enthusiasm
the Tsing Tau victory. The vice
minister of the navy states that
the Japanese will hold Tsing Tau
until the war is over, when she
will "open negotiations" with
China. *
It is suggested that the Japanese will now inaugurate an of
fensive naval campaign on the
Pacific, employing the fleet released from the bombardment of
Tsing Tau in an attempt to run
down the (lerman warships which
wrought such havoc to British
shipping and defeated the British
fleet off Chile.
After desperate assaults in
which the Japanese, in the face
of heroic resistance, rivalled the
bravery of their forces at Port
Arthur, Tsing Tau surrendered.
Governor Mayer- Waldeck, following the hoisting of white flags
on the forts, sent an officer with
a flag of truce to the Anglo-
Japanese lines. The Japansse
and German officers opened a
conference at Moltke barracks
when the formalities of capitu-
latifln were concluded.
The Japanese pay unstinted
tribute to the bravery of the
Germans who fought to the last.
Unofficial reports are that the
Germans blew up what was left
of their forts before surrendering and practically the whole
town is in ruins. A Japanese
torpedo boat flotilla that entered
the bay found that all the ships
had been destroyed.
British took an important part
in the victory and two British
officers were wounded. No
statement of the German casualties is available, but it is believed
that they were heavy.

Mrs. Rushworth, of South Fort
George, will render piano selections in
the afternoon from 3 to 6 oclock and
will greatly add in this way to the
afternoons benefit.
It is expected that the attractions of
the evening with a new floor prepared
for dancing will furnish an enjoyable
event as well as a berefit which is the
object of the Club.
The Hall is being tastefully arranged
in booths and pavilions, the Dutch Tea
Room being especially attractive.
Many have asked why the ladies did
not put the price of the admission
tickets at $1.00 instead of 50 cents; but
it was their wish that everybody should
have no excuse not to come and help a
little in the work. It is thought many
would like to come from Prince George
and Fort George; and with the additional expense of vehicles to convey
these people, the fee of 50 cents was
considered sufficient.
The Auto drivers have wished to
participate in the benefit and in the
vening will take those attending the
dance from the two towns to and from
the Theatre free, and in the afternoon
half fap from Fort George and Prince
George to South Fort George and return for those who attend the sale and
wish to return to their homes before
attending the dance.
Autos leave Munr i's store in Fort
George and the Fort George Drug Co.s
store in PrinceGeorge at 3 and 8:30 p.m.
Everybody is invited. There will be
no admission charge in the afternoon
and in the evening only 50 cents.
Remember, it is for the benefit of
the distressed people of our own district. And everybody is asked to help
a little.
