CITY A.S'ltt DISTRICT
Mr. and Mrs. F. P. Harden arrived
from yuesnel by special stage Tuesday. Mr. Burden is building a home
un the Natural Resources Company's
townsite on the Nechaco river.
C. M. Brown, of the firm of Close
& Brown, returned from a business
visit to Vancouver this \ve__, having purchased a large stock of merchandise lor the approaching season's trade. Mr, Brown also spent
some time duck shooting in the
boundary  country.
The South Fort Oeorge Quadrille
club held the last of the winter assemblies on St. Patrick's night. On
Monday a meeting wns held and the
election of officers for the summer
term held. The new committee consists of Messrs. Wm. Howatt, J.
Clarke, R. Riggs, W. Howlson, and
J. McGaghey. A vote of thanks was
tendered the outgoing committee for
their arduous work in providing such
excellent entertainment during the
long winter nights, und then- creditable handling of the llnanees ol the
club. TllO new committee have decided to hold dances every other Friday, beginning with March 31. Mr,
Senior will be in charge of the orchestra arrangements.
Registered at the Northern Hotel
on Tuesday were 13. Krdmaii and J.
Harpens. They are the forerunners of
a throng who may be expected this
summer. One good feature in connection with thc first arrivals is the
fact that they came afoot the entire
distance from Ashcroft. The distance
to Quesnel from the former place was
made in eight days, and from Quesnel to Soutii Fort Geo:ge the time
consumed was four days. They travelled late and early. Messrs Kidman
and Harpens arc from Seattle, and
say that a vast multitude may be
expected here this summer and the
summer following.
W. F. Cooke arrived in town last
Tuesday from Vancouver. Mr. Cooke
has purchased r. large stock of goods
for the Northern Lumber Co.'s store
now in course of construction on
Second street. The store is to be
the largest in Cariboo.
The Northern Lumber Company are
shipping in a new boiler and it is
their intention to put in a planing
mill in town in due course of time.
Their planer, a Woods No.l machine,
is the best on the market.
John Bronger is in Rotterdam. He
writes, on postal cards, that he will
return when the Fraser is uncovered.

The construction oi «« CUULU "on
George theatre on a lot between the
Herald office and the Burns building
will commence shortly.
John Enemark is erecting another
hutcher shop fur W. T. Ewing, about
half a block below his present shop
on Second street. This is an original
means of attempting to keep out any
opposition in one line of trade. We
can not see how this ruse will effect
thc desired result, and if the cmbreyo
Pat Burns does not keep a better
meet supply on hand in the future
than South Ft. George has had in
the past there will certainly be a
good opening here for a live man.
People in Vancouver are kicking at
having to pay 35 cents a dozen for
eggs. Here in Fort George thc same
hen fruit would sell for $3.00 for
twelve, and the demand, at this price
is large.
The first electric lights to shine in
the Fort Oeorge district were turned
on in the Herald office this week.
The plant was installed by 11. II.
Close, an electrical expert from New
York.
Mr.R.Riggs, who arrived here last
fall from the Soutli, will build a
restaurant opposite Close & Brown's
store on Second Street, find open it
for  the  slimmer trade.
winter, and splendid results have
been chieved. Thc company has now
000,000 feet of well seasoned lumber
in the local yards here.
Running a sawmill here in the winter is a difficult proposition. The
logs are frozen and as hard as iron,
the circular saws contract with the
cold until thc teeth drop out, and
the machinery is bridled by the intense low temperature.
Mr, Peden's genius as a mill man
has overcome all difficulties, however, and when the crank shaft of
the engine broke the other day and
mutilated the castings, a charcoal
tire was made and the whole engine
pinned and mended together. This
was thought to be an impossible undertaking by machinery men on the
coast and a new engine, weighing 4,-
100 lbs. was shipped in by express
from Ashcroft.

INFLUX OF SETTLERS.
According to a statement made by
E. ll. McKay, provincial surveyor ■■
general, a large in tin x of settlers to
this province is expected this year.
The sum of $450,000 will be expended by the provincial government in
making surveys on the various large
reserves. This amount exceeds last
year's appropriation by If 150,000.
These newly established reserves embrace millions of acres. Bona Ude
settlers have the privilege of taking
up homesteads within these reserves
after the government has made selections of lands for university purposes.

RAILWAY DEVELOPMENT
The G.T.P. to Build 140 New Stations
$3 per Annum.
Last year the Canadian Pacific R.R
company established forty thriving
tmvnsites along its new branch lines
,u Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta. This record will be eclipsed
this year, however, and it is expected that at least fifty new towns will
I,,, established in the west along the
lines cif this company. The opening
nf this campaign of extension is indented in the announcement recently
made by the assistant land commis-
ioner, J. L. Doupc, to the effect
ciat bits in live townsites will be offered for sale early next month, on
the Regina-Colonsay - Prince Albert
branch, the respective points being
Liberty, Stalwart, Imperial, Amazon and Simpson.
The active work of the Grand
Trunk railway, along the lines Indicated nbove, will greatly exceed tlmt
ol the C. P.  R-    B.  J. Chamberlin,
vice-president of the G. T. P., stated in Winnipeg last week, that the
company had recently purchased materials for the erection of a'total of
one hundred and forty new railway
stations.
There have been numerous inquiries from points in the weBt with reference to the erection of these
buildings. Replying to a question on
the subject, Mr. Chamberlin said the
difficulty in connection with the erection of these structures was that of
securing a sufficient number of carpenters. Last year a large force
was employed and ns many buildings
as could be built were erected along
the lines in the prairie provinces.
This year, it is believed, it will be
possible to do better than in 1910,
aud it is hoped that by tbe time the
winter comes all, or practically all
of the stations on the list will be in
use.
The new buildings will be put    up
by the company by the use of day
labor. No contracts will be let all
the work being done under the (direction of the company direct. Last
year there was some difficulty in securing materials for the depots, as
some of the lumber that was to be
used was burned in the great conflagration in the Rainy river district
last spring. This year it is hoped no
such catastrophe will occur, and every effort will be made to provide
the settlers along the line with the
conveniences of a building for the
transaction of their business.
Of the new depots about one dozen will be located on the new Re-
gina and Yorkton branches. There
will be fifteen on the line running to
the east from Prince Rupert, a station being located every seven miles.
The balance will be placed along the
main line of the company in the
three prairie provinces.
All the station will be built on a
standard plan known as "A" plan.
This shows a neat building with provision for the residence of the agent
and for the handling of the usual
passenger and express  business,  etc.
TELEGRAPH WIRE WANTED
It has been rumored that it is the
intention of the Dominion government to purchase the telephone line
from the Port George and Alberta
Telephone Co, a concern operating a
once-in-a-while service between the
Natural Resources townsite on the
Nechaco river—with an extension to
the business centre of the district in
South Port George — and Black-
water, a point fifty miles soutii of
here, where the private concern's
wire intersects the Yukon telegraph
service.
It appears quite impossible to receive correct messages over the present system of trnnsmi .-i r. betwee .
Ashcroft and South fort George. A
telephone is an excellent means of
carrying on a tete-a-tete with a
baby doll, or a business acquaintance at a distance, but in the transfer of messages every letter of which
makes up a completed message of
importance, or a botched and Typ
ographical nothing - at - all, tbe
Morse alphabet and telegraph instrument has been proved to be the only
reliable means of transmission.
The rates now existing between
Ashcroft and South Fort George are
excessively exorbitant. The local
company charge 75c for telephoning
ten words 50 miles. Then the Dominion government get in their work at
5 cents a word to transmit this message to Quesnel, a distance of forty-
five miles further south, and 5 cents
more to send it to the railroad at
Ashcroft, 220 miles further. A total
of 12_ cents a word to transmit a
message for 320 miles.
If the Dominion government is not
in the market for the telephone company's line, it is up to the Department of Public Works at Ottawa to
extend their government telegraph
service from Blackwater to South
Fort George, in order that a one-
line, efficient commercial telegraph
service may be at the disposal of the
public here.
Government Offices to be Erected Immediately
Will be Located on the Hudson's Bay Company's Property
Trail Building in the Peace
en
The fiat has gone forth. The deed is done. After months of deliberative deliberation, the gov-
ors domiciled at James Bay, in the ancient capital of Victoria, have unanimously resolved to
ant a representative and a government office to the district. This is good news. Primary, bens,, ii adds piquant sauce to enterprise. Secondly, it stimulates heart action in the development of
, agricultural section that owes its existence, almost exclusively, to facilities afforded newcomers to
iter upon lands without the irksome and expensive system in vogue in the past, of having to con-
ict operations by correspondence with an office removed three hundred miles. This is now changed.
The welcome news arrived yesterday. It was the result of an interchange of wires by the secre-
ry of lhe board of trade and the government, through J. A. Fraser, M. P. P., asking what the
ivemment's intentions were in the matter.   The reply from the member follows:—
" Quesnel, B. C, March 31,1911.
" To P. O'Flaherty, Secretary South Fort George Board of Trade—
"Dear Sir:   In replying to your wires of yesterday, I may state that I am authorized to announce that  the  government  have definitely decided to  erect temporary
buildings for offices on the Hudson's Bay Company's land, adjoining South Fort George.
Government Agent Walker will be in charge. J. A. FRASER."
To locate a road around the south
shore of Lesser Slave Lake, A. P. C.
Belyea, D. L. S., of the provincial
department of public works, Alberta,
left last week with a survey party
for the north, says the Edmonton
Bulletin. Hithjerto there has been
some traveling south of the lake on
the shore, which has proved an uncertain and dangerously difficult way.
The party under Mr. Belyea will locate an inland trail, striking off
from Sawridge at the east end of
Lesser Slave Lake and leading to
Grouard, at the western extremity.
Settlers of the Swan Hills district,
south of Lesser Slave lake, will be
given direct access to the east by the
new road. Up to the present, the
route of travel from the Swan Hills
has been by way of Grouard and the
north shore of the lake. Few travelers have attempted the trip by the
south shore.
Before returning to Edmonton next
winter, Mr. Belyea will have made a
circuit of over a thousand miles. After locating the south road he will
survey a trail from Peace River
Landing to Dunvegan, from Dunve-
gan to Grand Prairie and then from
Grande Prairie to Edson. All of this
work may not be accomplished this
year, but it constitutes the program
of the party which left for the north.
Last year Mr. Belyea surveyed the
present trail from the Athabasca
Landing along the north shore of the
Athabasca river as far as the Fifth
Meridian. He also surveyed the road
from Grouard to Peace River Crossing and from Grouard to Prairie river.

The scale of chnrges in the British
Columbia Gazette governs the land
advertising rate:: in legitimate news-
l-nfiors. Thi' ''rti'-h Columbia Gazette rate is not liable to fluctuations. Nor is the Gazette published
for the purpose of profit. It is conducted solely in the interests of the
public at a minimum of expense to
the advertiser.. The scale established by the King's Printer is borne of
practical knowledge and merely defrays the expense of conducting such
an excellent and useful publication.
As we have said before, the rates in
thc Gazette stiller no fluctuation, nor
is the rate charged by The Herald
subject to the fluctuations of a
wheat pit.
There arc some land companies
operating in the Peace River section
of this district, from sumptuous offices in Vancouver sky scrapers, who
represent themselves as having sold
over half a thousand square miles of
that portion of Canada for a million
and a quarter dollars. If these million dollar dealers in British Columbia's unknown lands are transacting
ruch e'-orrconr dvJts, v. fail to sec
why they ..hould er ilea vor to beat
newspapers.   Let us explain.
For three years this publishing
concern has handled the land advertising for the large operators of the
Cariboo district. We have given the
public satisfaction by equipping ourselves with plant capable of handling their business quickly and accurately. Then along comes a firm,
peddling land by the hundred square
miles, which is so poor that it desires to beat down thc newspapers
in their scale of advertising, in much
the same manner as a pawnbroker
would haggle over the purchase of a
stolen plate, and deliver an ultimatum to the effect that if this cut
rate is not given them, they will install a fly sheet of their very own
and print these notices themselves.
We  welcome that description  of op
position. It paves the way to the
exposure of methods that smack of
illigitimacy.
We have bad opportunity of meeting and talking to many of the
Peace River Land Company colonization people, and their proposition
appears to assure the Peace River
valley of a great influx of well appointed settlers. It is possible that
operators are using the Peace River
field, as exploited by the legitimate
operators, in a manner which may
not be well for the future of tbe
great valley.
The Herald intends to send a staff
correspondent into the Peace River
valley during the coming summer,
and we will publish the true and absolute facts regarding the climatic
conditions of not only the Peace
River valley, which is all under reserve, but also of the Peace River
plateaux, the high table lands, on
which much of the great blocks are
being staked.
GRAND TRUNK RIGHT-OF-WAY
MAN SAYS RESERVE HAS
BEEN ACQUIRED.
"The Grand Trunk Pacific has now
purchased the Indian reserve at Fort
George, which they will subdivide
and put on the market by auction
sale," said George H. Pope, right-
of-way agent for the G.T.P., to a
Bulletin reporter, .vhile in Edmonton
last week. "The station has also
been located and the site for the
terminals. Aside from that, however, it is not yet definitely known
whether the Vancouver line will
branch off there or at Tete Jaune.
As a matter of fact it may leave the
main line at almost any point. Nor
has Fort George been chosen as a
division point; that depends entirely
on the mileage and how far removed
it is from the last division."

About one year ago South Fort
George was to all outward appearances a little one-horse hamlet on
the banks of the Fraser-River, Its
pioneers were at that time living in
shacks. There was no hotel, no
butcher shop, the two general stores
were built of hewn ISb'S. Its population was composed of the pioneers
of the country, n few land cruisers,
and the handful of business men. 'lhe
mail wns only delivered by the government once a month, and the Inhabitants lived on bacon, beans and
optimism. There were no graded
streets on  the    townsite   nnd    very
little clearing had been done. A tremendous stride in the development
of the place has transpired in the
paBt year. South Fort George is
now a typical Western "boom" town
which has gone through the stage
when its make-up was really primitive. Now large and well finished
frame buildings nre going up on every band where one year ago great
wind checked fir trees stood as sentinels amongst the lighter poplar
growth that covered most of the
townsite. The public at that period
of this town's existence, were only
commencing to realize that the
strngctic  location  of  this  place  as
sured it a wonderful future. Of a
place ultimately amongst the cities
of western Canada.
The curtain has rung down on the
scene of this city's pioneer days, but
the incoming horde who will flock
here from now on, year after year,
will witness the evolution of this
wooden city, into a metropolis of
concrete and steel sky scrapers, with
electric transportation and all the
rest of the metropolitan frills.
Come to Soutli Fort George, yee,
who hesitate, and rest your gaze
upon a western boom town made in
one piece so that there is no possibility of the "bottom falling out."

LAND BLOSSOMS.
Another firm operating in Fort
George futures on margin, has begun to blossom forth in Vancouver.
They call themselves the Canadian
National Investors Ltd., and are
hawking through the advertising columns of coast papers their li acre
blocks at $450. We do not know the
firm, but they are doing business
with Foster & Fisher, a firm we do
know. The land they are selling was
staked a year or so ago for a crowd
of Victoria operators that were
"close to the government." Cruisers
in the country had walked over the
land for years, considering It waste
land. The price paid the government
could not have been more than jo an
acre, whilst the sale price reaches
$360 an acre. By sub-dividing it into
acre and quarter blocks they manage
to escape giving the government a
quarter interest, as under section 37
of the Land Act any land divided
into lots containing one acre or less
are subject to the reconveyance to
the Crown of a quarter of the area
subdivided.
Their advertisment states that district lot 937 will be the centre of
Fort George. District lot 937 is Fort
George, as the townsite on it was
registered tinder that name. The
statement is misleading, and la of
course intended to enhance the value
of tbe acre and a quarter blocks of
land. The centre of the city which
will rise up at the junction of the
Fraser and Nechaco rivers will be on
thc G. T. P. townsite which is to be
located on Indian Reserve No. 1, and
which contains 1366 acres. In the
meantime South Fort George will
continue to be the commercial and
industrial centre of the Northern Interior; and after, it will form a part
of thc city which the G. T. P. will
name.

FORT GEORGE HERALD
PUBLISHED BY THE
NORTHERN INTERIOR PRINTING CO.
J. B. DANIELL. PRESIDENT
Devoted   to   thc   interests   of   Fort
George and the entire Northern Interior.
J. II. DANIELL, Editor.
APRIL 1, 1911.
Man lives by Hope. Pandora, when
her box of gods'-gifts flew all out
and became gnds'-curses, still retained Hope.
We still have Hope tbe governmenl
will erect government offices here.
A lie cannot endure forever. At
birth  it is given a death sentence.
The house organ of the Natural
Resources company, on their Nechaco
river townsite, runs a serial story,
without any concluding paragraph in
sight, about the "knockers " in
South Fort George and on the Cariboo road. The house organ does not
name this town. It always avoids
anything drastic, but its shallow inferences are very obvious.
We appreciate the fact that along
thc road in "Old Cariboo" there exists a great number of people who
know about as much of the Fort
George district from first hand
knowledge as, say, the editor of the
Tribune. They seek to keep people
out because by their feeble efforts
they imagine they will assist in retarding an influx which  sounds   the
... knell to their grain peddling
'•usiness to freighters. They deplore
the fact that the building of the G.
T. P. will kill the Cariboo road traffic; but they are too absurdedly futile to demand the attention of mediums of publicity.
But the townsite company's paper
is not content with its crack at the
grain and meal peddlers of the Cariboo road, but the reeling brain of its
ragtime writer seeks a means of conveying to its readers a statement
that South Fort George is made up
of similar material to that found
in many of the Cariboo road houses,
without making the statement in so
many words.
Now, the people of this city have
very little in common with the Nechaco river townsites, whose owners
have always endeavored to make the
outside public understand that these
are two separate towns. That entirely suits us. However, South
Fort George is far too live and busy
a town to have to spend any time
worrying about the rural districts,
their development will follow later.
This is the business and residential
centre of the district, built up by the
individual eflorts of independent business houses. Every foot of the waterfront here is a natural dock, and
the situation of the town is so altogether excellent that it defies comparison.
Arrivals this week state that there
are at least 1*00 people on thc Cariboo road, bound for Soutii Fort
George at this moment. As it is yet
n mont* until the opening of navigation there should be a great influx
in the early part of the season.
South Fort George wants a government onice established here for the
purpose of facilitating the transaction of land business, now assuming a
very important nature, and rendering
to the incoming throng more facile
methods for doing initial work in the
development of a country so full of
sunshine. South Fort George not
only wants a government institution
installed here, but deserves it. The
residents of the "New Cariboo" are
all grouped within its conf.nes under pressure of discomfort, merely
because a provincial unpaternal government is not clothed with the
spirit of enterprise.
The government officials who visited the district Inst summer were
then alive to the needs of the district; today, however, they are not
alive. They have forgotten that such
a place as South B'ort George is on
the map.
And we say: „
"Hops deferred makoth the heart
heavy."
An opposition townsite promoter
once wrote a letter in which he quoted from Elbert Hubbard the words
of wisdom, which sny, "Opportunity
knocks once at every man's door,
but if you, yourself, are knocking at
the same time, you will not hear."
Now, the Nechaco river ed tor is
making such a racket, that if opportunity ever does shashay around the
N. W. corner of the Indian reserve,
it will have to kick the door of the
Tribune office in and hit the editor a
bat on the head before he realizes
that things are happening.
The Herald will be busy chronicling the events which mark thc daily progress of our own city, without
having any space to spare in which
to tell thc public that the other
town's a joke, and "full of knockers
as hell's full of devils."
We want thc public to come to old
Fort George, and if they can find
any better location round this neck
of the woods to locate on, there will
be no hard feelings.
It will not be many years before
this absurd controversy over rival
townsites will be forgotten by the
fusing of the whole into the G. T.P.
divisional point of Fort George, or
Laurier, or whatever the railroad
company decides to call the town. In
the meantime, let there be peace and
prosperity, also.

FARM  VALUES AND WAGES  IN
CANADA.
The census monthly issued by Archibald Blue from Ottawa for January says that values and wages in
Canada make a good record for 1910.
The total value of live stock on the
farms is $593,768,000, which is $34,-
979,000 more than in 1909. The price
per bead of horses is $132.50, as
against $130.72 in 1909, of milk cows
$42.60, against $36.36, of other cattle $30.90 against $28.81, and of
sheep $6 against $5.89. Swine alone
show a drop in average price, being
$11.30 per head against $11.80. The
total  value of horses is $293,398,000

It is to be hoped that when the
Northern Development Co. start
their work on the townsite here,
that they will consider tbe construction of sidewalks on the principal
streets. A sidewalk along Second
street from the corner of Hamilton
avenue to Laselle avenue, up Laselle
lo Fourth and down Fourth to the
Northern hotel, would be a good beginning, and would enable pedestrians to negotiate tlic distances between the principal points of tbe
town without getting covered with
dust in the summer time and mud in
the spring and fall. Sidewalks nre
the most necessary Improvements to
a young town, and the work of providing them devolves upon those who
are promoting tbe sale of thc property. Every business man would undoubtedly help and much of tbe tnsk
bas already been performed by individuals, who have built 8-foot side-
wulk- iu front of their buildings,
but the distances opposite vacant

Of sheep $15,819,000 against $15,735,-

horses was in Saskatchewan, of milk
cows, other horned cattle and sheep

The average value of occupied farm
land in the Dominion was $38.45 per

Columbia, where the cost of clearing
