Dear Sir,
Referring to  an  article which
Ippeared on your front page of the last
Isue of your paper entitled "G. T. P.
Bridge .till continues to hold back city."
[wish to take exception to some of Ihe
ItatemeiitB in this artitb, which, I am
ure will create an erroneous impression
In the outside is t_ the condition of the
lumber market in this district.
[There is approximately 3 million feet
1 Manufactured Lumber available here
It this time, and from 30 to 4 J thousand
leing  manufactured   daily,   which   is
fore than sufficient to supply all present
inlands.
[Like the writer of the article above
|ferred to 1 feel that a great injustice
j heen dune to the miils which depend
I the Kraser River for their logs, and
le transportation of their lumber, by
fee blocking of traffic at the temporary
ridge, but I also feel that statements
nch as twu of the articles on your
lont page contain, will do more to re-
ird thc growth of our little city than
pe bridge obstruction can poisinly do.
[The report going abroad that there is
(shortage of Lumber in this district,
| bound to influence intending visitors
lid settlers, and it s ems to me that if
be advertising of this fact is necessary,
I would be wise to wait at least until
lie condition exists.
II will be glad if you will investigate
his matter thoroughly and contradict
his report in your next issue, as I am
Juite sure you will find it without

ckukVP AND TOWNSITES
COMPANY, LIMITED.
Mr. Stewart for the Pacific
Great Eastern Railway Company paid our town a visit last
Tuesday in connection with the
question of changing the present route of the railway. This
visit is the result of a petition
made by the Chamber of Commerce of South Fort George to
the Hon. Sir Richard McBride.
Prmier; Hon. Thos. Taylor, W.
.J. Wowser, and officials of the
P.G.E. This petition asking
that present plans of the railway bo changed to cross from
east to west bank into D. L.
93'? or some other available
point betweon here nnd Fort
George Canyon up through
South Fort George, Hudson
Bay, Miller addition and Prince
George. Among those in attendance were noticed Messrs.
F. W. Crawford, Seaman, Mc
Laughlin, Johnson, Murdoff,
Brown. Blair and others.
Mr. Crawford, secretary-tres.,
introduced the visiting gentlemen and in a very capable and
forcible manner commenced the
discussion in favor of the railway changing their route and
explained the many different
reasons and the necessiy of su-,k
a change. In the first place
the question was most vital to,
thi province, Government, people and the greater town of
Prince and Fort George affecting not only our passenger and
freight service but the deve'op-
ment of the country in general.
He went on to show tbat 75
per cent of the freight tonnage
was taken care of, large manufacturing concerns who are desirous of locating here cannot
bring in their heavy machinery
required for manufacturing purposes, further that there had
be n 10,000 tons of freight
handled here in the past * year,
and this was increasing all the
time. The P.(I.E. running up
the east side of the bank along
the Fraser would always have
trouble with land slides, the
cost of which would go a long
wny to the purchase price of
anotbar new bridge. The G.T.
P. had absolutely refused to
consider running a spur line
down to serve us, giving excuses for not doing so. Fort George was badly in neod of the
P.G.E. and can furnish them
with ample business to repay
any money they may be called
upon to expend we were tl»j
larger of the three towns, Central next with Prince George
third, and that railways should
pass us up was beyond all understanding. Of course it is
said that they are the only
railways we have, therefore we
must give them our business,
he diclnot consider this a fair
argument. Mr. Crawford brought out several other strong
points and coupled with those
of the several gentlemen present should go a long way in
helping the Government and
officials of the P.G.E. in deciding in our favor.
In reply Mr. Stewart said it
was merely a question of dollars and cents with thb cqm-
pany and that they had considered just such a proposition as
had been suggested by the
Chamber of Commerce. It
would mean the expenditure of
nn enormous sum of moncy.fi-
rst to build n second bridge
nnd the purchase of a right-of-
way through t.he town. They
had an agreement with the G.
T.P. which allowed tnem run-
n'ner rights over their bridge
antl even into their yards. The
only suggestion he had to offer
was to prepare another petition to the railway commission
asking them to compel either
the G.T.P. or the P.G.E. to
run a spur line down through
the town to a point half a.mile
below it, this in his estimation
was the only way to over come
the dfficulty. He would be will
ing to give his ssistanco  along
any other
this town.
The traffic    is here, the road
is    needed, our rulers have the
just,and deserving of attention. ■ say     as to whether we      shall
Mr. Gamble said he had list
ened with great interest to all
the arguments put forward in
favor and contrary, but he had
nothing at present to offer, but
upon his return to A'ictoria
would prepare a complete report of what had transpired
nnd submit same to the Premier.
In their petition and presenting of the arguments to the
Government and railroad officials of the Pacific Great Eastern Railway why their road
should come through on the
west side of the Fraser, the
business men of the district
are to be congratulated that
they succeeded n getting a h ar
ing from the Government and
there is much to said in favor
of tlie Covernment, Premier Mc
Bride and Mr. Stewart the pre-
ident in that they journeyed to
South Fort George to give the
matter their personal attention
the Premier sending his able representative Mr. Gamble.
Again the people and the Cham
ber of Commerce did well to
secure from the railroad president admission that their cause was just that the route of
the railway as indicated by
them was the only proper place for it to run, that to put a
road along the cut banks opposite South Fort George was
a wicked place to l_»uild a road,
and that we were intitled to
all we asked but that it was a
question of money, the extra
cost of a bridge and right-of-
way, only, and all argument
was centred on that question.
receive this vital assistance or
whether the road shall continue to be built where it can
never so long as the road exists be of a dollars worth of
value to anyone.

South Fort George, B. C.
May 20th, '14
Honorable Richard McBride.
Prem'er Province of
British Columbia.
Victoria. B. C.
Dear Sir,—
The people of this district
through thier Chamber of Commerce wish to express to you
their appreciation o, your action in sending Mr. Gamble,
Chief Engineer of Railways
Department, to investigate on
the ground their request and
petition for a change in route
of the Pacific Great Eastern Railway from the east to
to the west bank of the Fraser
at this end of the line.
A free frank and full exposition of the matter was gone into yesterday in a meeting of
tba Chamber of Commerce with
Mr. Gamble and Mr. Stewart
the president of the Pacific
Great Eastern.
The exchange of arguments
brought from Mr. Stewart the
acknowledgement that our petition was in every respect reasonable, that the cut banks
across from this town was a
wicked plact; to put a railroad,
that we were entitled to a road
on this side, that the very
place for crossing we pointed
out and suggested was the
only place for a crossing and
that without doubt deve'op
ment and welfare of the town
and area to be the scene of the
building of this great city called for the road to cross as we
had asked. The ra lway company had gone into all the
facts and considered the crossing at the point indicated.
Why then are wn not to secure what is so obvious and to
which all agree?
It hinges on tho additional
cost of another bridge and
right-of-way but more obvious still it hinges on an
agreement with tht* G. T. P. or
between the interested roads,
that the G. T. P. demand the
handling of traffic, at their terminals for SO years, that irrespective of the needs of the
community, its welfare, its de-
development and assistance of
the ruilronds. to that end, we
must willy nilly tako our freight from the point the rai'-
roads tell us we must. Were
it a question of competition the

FRANKS WILL LIGHT WINNER
Uf TONIIiHT'S BOUT
About nine o'clock Sunday
evening a fire which might have
proved disastrous to our
town was narrowly averted by
the prompt action of some of
our citizens and tho timely
arrival of the chemcial engine
of the fire department. The fire
started under the stairs in
Brown's pool room in the Blair
building and it-is supposed to
have been the result of carelessness of some person throw-
away a cigar or cigarette stub.
The Blair building is a, frame
structure built from scow lumber with a good amount of
pitch on it and had
the blaze once gained head
way, nothing would have stopped it from wipping out tho
entire block. Right here it
would bo well to advise parties
throw ng away partly burnt
matches, cigar stubs, etc to b.
more careful in the future, for
a blaze like what we were
threatened with might wipe
out our entire town.

Maddison of Spokane missed
connections for his fight against
Franks. However, Franks has
arranged to fight the winner of
tonight's bout on Monday night,
May 25th, in the Kort George

prove a better and more interesting arrangement. Franks has
been training hard all week and
is in perfect shape.
Franks leaves immediately after the fight for Missoula, Montana, to fight Aheatle, formerly
featherweight champion of the
world, on June 15th.
MURDERER OF PORTER
SENTENCED TO BE HUNG
Much interest was taken in the
trial of Geo. Onooki, charged
with the murder of Harry Porter
on the night, of December 24 of
last year. The trial took place
at Clinton before Justice Murphy.
Onooki, who is a Russian Pole of
about 25 years of age, appeared
unconcerned and uninterested
all through the trial. He had no
council and the court appointed
James Murphy of Ashcroft to
take charge of the case. As all
know, the evidence against accused was purely circumstantial,
but it was so strong that the jury
were only a little over ten minutes in coming to a verdict of
guilty. The storv of how Onooki
made preparations to hold up
Porter in order to get the large
amount of money which he was
supposed to be earning on his
person, and how on the night of
the murder he came to a friend's
house with his clothes i nd face
covered with blood is well known

"On the other hand, there is
nothing in this country fundamentally unsound from the busi
nesa point of view," said Sir
Thomas. "If I thought differently I would, with the evidences of stringency, begin to
feel a little anxious. That
is not the case absolutely. The
country is sound. No vital interest has been irretievably
hurt. As far as we are concern
ed, our position is strong.
There has been a shrinkage,
but when we consider our returns upon the stock and when
we consider above all, that the
business of the country in its
large aspects is sound and that
we ahare in it, there is no cause
for anxiety. The stock has its
intrinsic value apart from any
tpeculative interest, and then
too, we have other large assets
not directly associated with the
business strictly. Of course
these may be affected by the
fluctuations of economic law
but they have the inherent
value."
RANCHERS TO PROFIT
BY NEW CONDITIONS
Elko.—In view of the enquiry
for British Columbia apples in
the past two seasons, especially
on the part of New Zealand
and Australian market., extensive arrangements are to be
made for the handling of shipments to those countries this
year. In the apple growing dis
tricts around Elko tho ranchers
and rapidly becoming prosperous, and by spec alizing on fruit
with vegetables, poultry and
dairy products as side lines,
they are securing large results.
The effect of thefarming prosperity of the interior districts
of British Columbia, while it is
felt throughout the province,
is especially marked at Elko
and other boundry shipping
points. As _ result of the
freight rates decision of the
railway commission, important
benefits are anticipated by
shippers.
The British Government has
instituted criminal proceedings
against the owners and managers of the Senghenydd coll-
ery in Wales, where hundreds
of miners lost their lives in a
mine explosion in October last.
The complaint alleges that
tfattre were scores of breaches
of the coal mine ljw in the
management of the colliery.
Chairman Smithers of Board of
Directors Sails for Canada
Ottawa, May 13.—Word has
been received at Ottawa that
Chairman Smithers of the
Gmnd Trunk Pacific railway
board of the directors has sailed for Canada. It is presumed
nt the capital that this chief
business in Canada will be
with regard to the application
of tho Orand Trunk Pacific for
the assistance in completing the
mountain section. The Grand
Trunk claim is under the agreement of 190-1 the government is
bound to guarantee the bonds
lo nn amount equal to three-
quarters of the mountain section.
The government has already
done this to n certain figure,
but this is not up to the actual
cost. The securities issued have
been effhausted and the railway
is after further assistance to nn
amount of probably $15,000,000
The government takes the
position that if there is to be
further aid it will have to be
by a new agreement, as it is
claimed tiiat the old agreement
has to be fulfilled. This may
open up the question of the
future of the N. T. R. and the
terms under which th_ Grand
Trunk Pacific is to take over
the road now nearly completed.
Negotiations between the com
pany and the government have
made some little headway and
the question will be dealt with
as soon as the C. N. R. affair
is disposed of Chairman Smith
ers, it is believed is coming to
assist in carrying on the negot
iations in person.
The Canadian troops are to
go : nto camp in kahaki this
year.

THE P. G. E. ROUTE
The all-important question
to greater Fort George and
his district in general-what
will be the outcome of the
,etition and presenting of
Jie arguments on Tuesday
|ast to the Government and
tailroad Officials of the
•acific Great Eastern in regard to changing their route ?
'he President of the railway
company in answering above
says it is merely a matter of
dollars and cents with them,
he price of another bridge
over the Fraser to serve the
people ; he also went further
and admitted that the arguments submitted were practical and deserving of atten-
ion.
The Government have act-
in the interests of the
people, in arranging for the
visit of their chief engineer
f the railway department
I and the president of the road,
and the strong arguments
used and the justice due to
the people, we have no doubt
I will go a long way in helping
the Government to decide in
Iuur favor.
The route as planned by
tne railroad company along
ithe cut banks opposite South
Fort (leorge is the last place
[in the world to build a rail-
poad, especially when the
■company let "the dollars and
■cents question" stand in their
jway. Have they fully considered the enormous amount
■of money they will have to
[spend in keeping this part of
[the line in running order,
[because they are bound to
[have wash-out after wash-
lout for years to come.
At the present time right-
iof-waycan be purchased at,
ja remarkably low figure, the
railroad is necessary here for
the development of this community, .5 per cent, of the
freight of this district is
taken care of here, it is almost out of the question for
manufacturers to bring in
their heavy machinery under
present conditions and we
can guarantee the company
ample business to offset the
expense of a new bridge and
cost of right-of-way.
The government cannot
afford to disregard the
people's interests especially
when they are in the right
and we look forward to their
decision coming in "the
people's favor."
The Herald is now under
new management, and it is
no easy proposition we have
ahead of us in our desire to
re-model the plant, especially
one that needs over-nauling!
from top to bottom. The
plant is badly in need of new,
machinery, type, etc. Improvements cannot be accomplished on short notice as
it will likely take a month
probably two months, there,
fore we ask the kind indulgence of our many patrons
and readers, until we have our
plans fully established and
our newspaper and job department running on a sound
and practical basis. We will
then be in a position to turn
out a newspaper second to
none in this country, one that
our readers and advertisers
will be proud of.
To accomplish our desire it
is the duty of every citizen
to help us in every way he
can, and the avenues for
your assistance are numerous
both by your hearty support
and co-operation with the
manager.  What can you do?
may come to your attention,
advise us of meetings, etc.,
etc., let us have your suggestions as to improvements
(and many are necessary)
that will benefit our town,
and above all, bear in mind
hat a boost for your home
paper is a direct benefit to
our town.
Although only a few days
here, we predict a great
future ahead of Greater Fort
George with its many
advantages, and it is up to
all our industrious citizens to
put their shoulder to the
wheel and push for all they
are worth.

prop.
The announcement from London that Alexander of Teck is
io be the new Governor-General
of the Dominion is being received all over Canada with great
enthusiaism. That Canada in
future will have all her governor-generals from tha Royal
House appears to be the impression given by the latest appointment.
The new Governor-General is
the third son of the late Duke
of Teck and tbe late Princess
Mary Adelaide. He was educated at Eton and at the Royal
Military College at Sandhurst,
and later held a captain's commission in the 7th .Hussars and
the Royal Horse Guards. At
present he holds the rank of
Major in the second Life Guard
Major in the second life Guards.
Prince Alexander served in
Matabeleland in 1896, was men
tioned in despatches and received a medal. He served through
the South African war as A.D.
C. to Col. Mahon, was again
mentioned in despatches and
received the Queen's medal, with I
five clasps of the distinguished !
Service Order.
Prince Alexander was married
in 1904 to ner Royal Highness, i
Princess Alice of Albany,    who j
was born in 1883.   They    have j
two    phildren   living—Princess
May Helen Emma, born in 1906 i
and   Prince Rupert Alexander,
born in 1907.   The Princess   is
a daughter of the late Leopold
George    Duncan     Albert, first
Duke of Albany, and his    wife,
Princess Helena of Waldeck and
Pyromont,    now    H.R.H. the
Dowager    Duchess   of Albany,!
who is a codsin of Queen Wi hel
mina, of the Netherlands.
I want the public to become
familiar with a few of the
features of my establishment.
It is the largest restaurant in
Northern B. C, has private
dining rooms, is fitted throughout with the most modern
arrangements and appliances,
assuring sanitary food, quick
service and absolute satisfaction. The building is equipped
with steam heat and sanitary
plumbing.
I have been fortunate in securing the services of chefs
and bakers unequalled in Canada for knowledge and experience in the culinary arts.
Last, but not least, I want
to express my appreciation for
the large patronage in the
past.

CANCELLATION OF RESERVE
Parcel Post Insurance
Ottawa.—Just as soon as
Legislative assent has been given to the necessary amendment to the act authorizing
the parcel post system a scheme
of parcel post insurance will be
inaugurated.
Under the new scheme, parcels will be insured at a nominal rates against loss or damage. The rate of insurance
will be posted at all post-
offices as soon as amended
to sanction the introduction of
the branch. It is expected that
this will be in the course of a
week or so.
The various express companies since the inauguration of
the parcels post have been making considerable capital out of
thefact that parcels entrusted
to the mails were entirely at
the owners risk.
MOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that
•*•' the reserve existing upon Crown
lands in the Cariboo and Cassiar Districts, notice of which was published in
the B. C. Gazette on the 12th of September, 1907; also the reserve existing
upon Crown lands within the Land Recording Districts of Cariboo and Lillooet and the Kamloops Division of
Yale Land Recording District, notice
of which appeared in B. C. Gazette on
the 4th of April, 1911, is cancelled in
so far as the same reserves the said
lands from lease under the provisions
of the Land Act.

My Dear Readers :
Don't think because we haven't
been making a big noise in this
paper for the past few weeks that
we have gone out of business. It is
merely a calm before a great storm.
We have been laying our plans and
studying your wants, and it has been
with difficulty that we have been
able to suppress what has been taking place at th« Kennedy-Blair establishment.
But now that our goods have arrived we feel that an open confession will result in not only profit
temportl but good to our immortal
souls. During the past three days
we have unloaded three cars of
goods at our warehouse.
Two cars of Groceries, which consist of the delicacies of every nation.
Space will not allow ui to quote you
prices here, or describe our goods,
but we wish to extend you a most
cordial invitation to visit our grocery counter during the coming week,
where we shall talk to you with the
same interest as father to son.
Our car load of Dry Goods and
Shees assorts our stock to perfection.
We would like to draw your attention to our most beautiful fur sets,
consisting of marten, mink and
ft.-her muffs, sioles and hats, manufactured by Fairweathers from our
o-.vn native furs.
We would also invite you to inspect
our lace  curtains,  window   blinds,
- urpet squares,  summer underwear
-and our converfation.
We remain,
Your moat humble servants,
Kennedy, Blair & Go.
