SOUTH FORT GEORGE, B.C., NOVEMBER 12, 1910.
A Trip Into the Peace
RlVAl* By Ws*y of Giscombe Portaee
lilVer    A Nine Hundred-Mile Jaunt
With the return from the Peace River of advance
agents for the myriads of agriculturists who will
at no distant day swarm into that country, come
glowing reports of the richness of that section.
All, jointly and severally, agree that the best,from
an agricultural standpoint, is to be found in that
large block of land which the provincial government handed over to the Dominion, embracing three
million five hundred thousand acres, and which today is under reserve. Among the most recent arrivals from the Peace river are James Petry, Frank
Watson and Kit Carson, three old-time British Columbians who know good land when they see it.
The party left South Fort George early in the spring
for Giscombe, from whence they portaged a distance of eight miles to Summit lake-the source of
the Crooked, Parsnip, Findlay and Peace rivers
and then proceeded down the Crooked river.
"We covered nine hundred miles in the round
trip," said Mr. Petry, "and what we have seen there
has been a revelation to us. We were ready to
discount the estimate formed by previous explorers
in respect to what that section could produce and
the extent of arable land, but our visit to that section has astonished us. Why, at Fort St. John, on
September 1, we saw tomatoes ripening, and a snap
shot of the Hudson's Hay factor at that point,
while standing in his garden, will show you as line
a lot of cabbages and onions, as mortal man ever
looked at," continued the narrator, warming up to
bis subject.
"Comparatively speaking, the trip is an easy one,
for good water can be had all the way down the
Crooked river, the Parsnip and the Findlay to
Fort Grahame. Of course, there are :t number of
portages that have lo be overcome, besides the
Findlay Rapids. The Hudson's Bay manager at
Fort Grahame, Wm. Fox, tells a pathetic story
about his potato crop. Mr. Pox spent last season
visiting in Winnipeg, and the gentleman who re-
lieved.him forgot to plant potatoes. The consequence
of this was that when Mr. Fox returned from his
leave of absence, he found himself minus potatoes.
He looked around and found one, which he planted
and the result from this one potato gave his family'
of six three meals.
"From Fort Grahame we crossed the Laurier
Pass, down Cypress creek and up Halfway
river to Fort St. John. At this point there are two
stores, the Hudson's Bay and the Reveillon Bros.
The Hudson's Bay Company's boat makes a monthly trip to Fort Vermillion, a distance of five hundred miles down the river from Fort St. John. The
altitude of St. John is four hundred feet lower than
South Fort George-fourteen hundred. The average
altitude, however, is about seventeen hundred feet.
"The country will average about 40 per cent.
open prairie. The balance is covered with small
poplar and spruce along the river edges. It is an
ideal country for stock grasing, with its fine open
stretches and high grass.
"There are eight families located at the .southeast corner of this big Dominiont reserve, who expect, once the federal authorities* survey the land,
to be included as homesteaders. Fort St. John is
situate about the centre of the reserve."
Mr. Petry, with associates, left on the Chilco for
the coast, where he goes to report to Vancouver
people his work in the Peace the past summer.
$3 per Annum.
Last winter there were no road houses between
Blackwater Crossing and South Fort George, a distance of sixty miles. This year there is provision
made for the weary traveler. John Bronger, the
architect and contractor, who last week finished
the erection of The Herald Swiss chalet on Fourth
street, next to the proposed theatre building, also
completed a road house exactly midway between
Blackwater and here. Duncan Mackenzie has taken
over the house and will run it all winter. Provision
is made to accommodate eighteen people at one
time, and the stabling facilities are ample for eighteen horses. Good water is one of the features of
this road house.
Over a quarter of a million dollars worth of school
lands were disposed of at a sale at Vermillion, on
October 29.
William Roderick Ross, known as Ballot Box Bill,
defeated J. W. Bennett, Socialist, by a majority ot
349, at Pernie. Ross is the now lands minister
in the reconstructed McBride cabinet,
About the
"Migratory Bird"
The Tribune, the advertising organ of the Natural Resources Security company, was purchased
from Houston's heir for the sole and express purpose of coloring reports of their townsite. They
are ashamed to state in its columns that they own
the paper.
The statement scattered broadcast in red-ink circulars that the government offices are located on
the townsite of the Natural Resources Security
company is an absolute lie.   They are not.
Lem, Tai & Co., three Chinese, have opened the
only restaurant and eating house on the Natural
Resources townsite, known as Central Fort George
in the spring and Fort George in the fall. The restaurant is located opposite the Tribune office on
Central avenue. There are no Chinese restaurants
in South Fort George.   It is a white man's town.
A pioneer's club was organized at Central with
the following officers: President, F. N. Dewar;
secretary, Reverend C. M. Wright; treasurer, Reverend A. T. Bell. The organization will be known
as "The Pioneer Club."   The name is a misnomer.
The migratory bird is called Central in the spring
and Fort George in the fall. What will they call
or name their townsite once the Grand Trunk put
the Indian reservation on the market? If short of
a title, name it what Sherman defined war: "Just
Hell"   short and simple.
lt would make interesting reading to know how
much "pressure" figured in the attempted landing
of the government buildings at Central Fort George.
We would not for one instant impute dishonorable
tactics on the part of British Columbia politicians,
for they are as white as the driven snow; as pure
as linen parchment.   But how strong was it?
The N. R. S. Co., are petitioning the Dominion
government to have the Nechaco river, fronting
their property, dredged at public expense, in order
to allow boats to land there. The government
would be wasting money in doing it, as the channel would readily fill up again. The petition is not
meeting with success, and apart from the signatures of the employees of the company, there are
none on the paper.
Aid to Letter Navigation
If you have any intention of writing to this district remember there is a conglomeration of town-
sites on the market here. Every little suburb is
called Fort George - probably because there is a
George on the throne, and anything savoring of
royalty appeals to long-distance buyers. Every
petty weakness in the human family is taken advantage of by unscrupulous promoters whose armies of minions hawk their misleading printed circulars around the back doors of honest people's residences in cities like vegetable pedlerson a competitive cruise.
There is one Fort George de facto, and that is the
name given to the Hudson's Bay Company's fort
long before any of the Hammond family were
moulded. The grant from the Colony of British
Columbia to the Hudson's Bay Company, prior to
confederation, embraced ninety acres of land, and
in the deed of gift Fort George was named as the
post. In fact, the post is 102 years old, and antedates, if logical reasoning stands for anything, the
advent of the Minneapolis adventurers into the
district.
The other Fort George is a strip of land bordering the reservation. It is not owned by the G. T.
P. Railway Company.
From Victoria comes the announcement that the
Hudson's Bay Company will take the matter into
court, at the instigation of another company, and
ask for an order restraining townsiters the use of
the name Fort George.
In the meantime the business of the district is
transacted at South Fort George. If you want
prompt replies to your letters address them South
Fort George. Everything is at South Fort George,
with the exception of two ministers. It is on the
Fraser river.
G.T.P. Work East of the
Rfwtlrc  Proceeds Slowly—Labor Is
M%.tf t/lia Scarce, Poor and Under Paid
Apart from the work of L. C. Gunn, the G. T. P.
representative in the district, who is rushing survey work along the Fraser, midway between here
and Quesnel, there is no sign of any Grand Trunk
activity in the immediate vicinity. Mr. Gunn was
in South Fort George two weeks ago and left down
river on the last trip of the "B.X." He had two
bales of snowshoes with him, and if deduction is
worth the price of admission, it would indicate
that work on the G. T. P. branch to Vancouver is
receiving more consideration from the railway managers than it has in the past. General Manager
Chamberlain has made the announcement that the
branch to Vancouver from here would be completed as soon as the main line. If this is really
so, it is evident that greater alacrity must be exercised than in the past.
Wm. Garwood who, during the latter part of
August, did packing for the advance corps of engineers east of the Rockies, is in South Fort George.
He came down the North Thompson and out on the
Cariboo road at Lake La Hache. When he left the
railroad they were laying steel three miles west of
Edison. Temporary bridges were all up and the
railroad people were erecting round houses there.
A large number of people had moved from Wolfe
creek to Edison, believing that the latter place
would be the winter terminus. The engineers,
however, hope to make the winter end at Prairie
creek, 54 miles west of Wolfe creek. Wolfe creek
is 121 miles west of Edmonton. Prairie creek is
at the foot of the Rockies, and rock work commences on leaving this point. A good wagon road,
built by the railway contractors, parallels the railroad track from Wolfe creek to the B.C. line. This
was rendered necessary by the muskeg nature of
the country. From the foothills, over and into the
Rockies, supplies will be pushed this winter, and
our informant is of the opinion that supplies will
be cached at Tete Jaune this winter in order to
facilitate work the coming summer. This point will
be one of the main base of supply points while construction is in progress. Contracts have already
been called for the cutting of ties and the taking
out of timber for scows, with which to transport
supplies, etc., down the river.
"Labor is scarce, of poor quality and under p§id,"
said Mr. Garwood. "There a large number of
Doukhobors working on the line who live wholly in
muskeg houses. A good many sub-contractors believe that rock work will proceed much faster than
most people imagine. The formation on the eastern approach is a shaly loose rock, with good dump
in nearly all instances."
Liquor Along the Line
Major Tucker, of the N. W. M. P., appears to be
doing good work along the line of construction of
the G.T.P. He is at present at Prairie creek, with
a force of four picked constables and a small army
of plain clothes men, who are not only enforcing
the Dominion liquor regulations, but likewise driving out all tinhorn parasites who ply their trade
along the line. At Edison recently a large quantity
of liquor, valued at $1000, was confiscated and destroyed within sight of the public. Liquor in almost every conceivable shape is taken in by bootleggers of all degrees. Some pack it in suit cases
and others label it G.T.P. supplies. The greatest
law-breakers in this respect are the keepers of road
houses who, in most instances, have made tall
money selling to railroad gangs "high-wine" dope,
an article of their own manufacture.
Another salutary prescription the police have
given to men along construction is the order prohibiting the carrying of firearms, and especially so in
Jasper park, through one end of which the rail line
passes. This park contains 40,000 acres, and is
policed by both game wardens and police.
Major Tucker's commission carries him through
to the coast, and it is most likely he will visit the
headwaters of the Fraser next summer, in order
lay and prepare his plans for the inrush that will
take place there.

CITY AND DISTRICT
E. Stonham, u B. N. A. bank inspector, clime in on the Chilco Sunday afternoon and left by the same boat the
day following at 7:15. lie complimented
South Fort Oeorge by stating that the
appearance and surroundings of their
bank here excelled any of the interior
branches. Mr. Stonham at one time
was stationed at Ashcroft.
A. J. Huble, the storekeeper at Giscombe, was a passenger on the Chilco,
outward bound. Mr. Huble has not
been out in live years and thinks a
change this winter will improve his
health. He will go as far east as Chicago and does not expect to be back
before May 1. His live stock, including a young colt, were taken down on
the same boat to Quesnel, where they
will winter.
S. Thompson, purser of the Chilco,
laid over in Soutli Fort George on the
last trip of his boat.
N. H. Wesley expects to leave for
Manitoba about December 1, where he
will spend the winter. Me has been so
accustomed to cold and harsh climates
in the past, that he fears the mildness
of South Fort George will not be conducive to peace of mind. He received
from Toronto, ten days ago, a coat that
is a "perfect dream," as a saleslady
would say. It is plucked beaver of a
very uniform hue, and the skins were
selected by himself last spring from the
extensive emporium of Ah Hee & Co.
Twelve pelts were used in making the
coat, and the price paid for the finished
garment would buy a dozen lots in Central. Fort George, besides leaving something for the ebonv porters between
Ashcroft and Winnipeg. Mr. Wesley
expects to come in over the trail early
in the spring with a typewriter, two
lull-top desks and a safe.
The first skating of the season took
place on Wednesday afternoon, when
a party composed of Mesdames Luke
and English and Messrs. J. Mor.roe, F,
O'Flaherty and L. G. MacHaffie, went
to the Hudson's Bay slough, opposite
Bird's pre-emption, and indulged in the
exhilarating pastime to their heart's
content. The ice is somewhat rough, but
an attempt will be made to flood a portion of the slough and render it a surface ideal for the large number of young
people who have expressed a desire to
spend mostof the winter there. A short
cut-off to the rink is by way of Third and
the Hudson's Bay tract.
The following taken from the Edmonton Journal shows that the veteran
trailblazer has landed there, In spite
of the fact that C. W. Moore is now a
travelling representative for the Natural Resources Security Company, he
is doing good work for the district as a
whole: "A visitor to the city today is
Charles W. Moore, one of the real pioneers of Central Fort George, having
located on a ranch just alongside of the
present townsite, four years ago. Mr.
Moore is just commencing a trip through
the better known parts of Canada and
the United States for the purpose of
making known the advantages of the
Fort George district, in the future of
which be possesses unbounded faith.
He came out from Fort George by way
of Ashcroft about a month ago, and
was in charge of the Fort George exhibits at the New Westminster exhibition."
The weekly mail went out by canoe
Monday morning at 8.
A potato famine is already in sight
in Winnipeg, and there is a general
shortage of other vegetables. Potatoes
are quoted at 90 cents a bushel and the
price is likely to go higher.
The Chinese colony of two have had
a disagreement over money matters.
Charlie Lee, the washerman, who also
is a sort of Bradstreet agent for the
Moguls at the coast, garnisheed Ah
He, a once prosperous Chinese merchant
in the district. Ah He resented the unseemly action of the newly-arrived financier, and an altercation took place in
the annex of the Hamilton store with
the result that A. (J. Hamilton ordered
Charlie off the premises. Charlie would
not budge and Daunted his painted
bracelets in Hamilton's face. Then came
the climax, in which Charlie went out
piecemeal, on his way to (he telephone
office to invoke the assistance of the
constable at Quesnel—one hundred and
ten miles away.
Among the arrivals on last Sunday's
boat were Mr. and Mrs. R Burns, of
the Northern hotel. Miss F. Inglehart,
of Victoria, accompanied them on their
trip in from the coast and will be the
guest of Mrs. Burns for the winter.
They have taken up residence in their
newly-completed house on Fourth street.
It looks like the end of navigation—
for the geese are flying high and headed
south. If the Chilco comes through
from Soda creek next week it will be
her last trip, as it is the intention to
berth her here.
Stanley Dunlevy came in by boat on
Sunday and left the day following.
There is one adorable thing about
Soulh Fort George and other dry towns
in the north that appeals to a man the
morning after the night he has visited
his private buffet. His pocketbook does
not possess the appearance of an
elephant having two-stepped   on   it.
