SOUTH FORT GEORGE, B. C, SATURDAY, APRIL 19, 1913.
$3 PER ANNUM
Townsite Promoter Will Again
Lead His Henchmen in a Last
Desperate Attempt to Move
prince George Depot Nearer to
His Group of Townsites.
According to the coast press the
Fort George crowd are again invoking the aid of their legal battery
to prevent the Grand Trunk Pacific
Railway from locating their depot
on the Prince George townsite where
they wish.
By the Fort George crowd, The
Herald refers to the Natural Resources Security Company, the Fort
George Board of Trade, which that
concern's lawyers created, and which
is manned by the trusty followers of
the townsite organization; the lobbying lawyers of the townsite company, thc newspapers which do its
bidding in return for advertising
contracts or stock subscriptions, and
thc vast army of people who have
purchased Fort George lots, and
who will sign anything presented to
them which may serve to enhance the
doubtful value of their properties.
Early last year the    Fort George
people took an application before the
railway commission which requested
that body to order the location of
thc Oraid Trunk Pacif.c depot at a
point not further than 1900 feet east
of the eastern    boundary    of their
townsite, a street named Fraser Avenue,   The  late   Chairman    Mabee,
stated that he could give no decision
in tlie matter of a station location
when the railway    wnn hundreds of
miles away,    as it then   was. The
session ended, however, in a sort of
tacit understanding   tbat   the depot
would not be nearer than 3000 feet
to   the   Fraser river.   The    Grand
Trunk Pacific representatives stated
that   from the   Fraser river   tor a
distance of 3000 feet west on their
line through the Prince George town-
site, there extended a three per cent
grade, They could not, in any event,
locate   the    depot on   this    heavy
gradient. It also transpired, at the'
session of   the railway commission,
that the Natural Resources Security
Company, who made the application,
had sold lots on the statement that
the depot   would be located  within
certain confines on the Grand Trunk
property near the Fort George properties, The application was obviously
made for the   purpose of  prevailing
upon the railroad commission to issue orders    which would    have the
effect of    supporting the  advertised
statements of the townsite concern.
The commission, however, could not
see its way to so far assist the lot-
selling company,
The  Natural    Resources    Security
Company    have   behind    them   the
names of the   thousands   of people
to whom they have sold 25-foot lots
In the Fort George townsites.  Just
what    influence  the    fact    of  these
People lending their Biraport  to the
application will have before the railroad commission remains to be seen.
To The Herald, it appears that the
fai-t of a   promoter    being able to
"ell thiB enormous quantity of lotB
upon   representations   made months
■"•fore they are permitted to be even
substantiated,   should,   if    properly
Presented be sufficient to defeat the
application in its earliest stages.
The Herald does not believe that
j >e townsite people hope to win any-
ntlR favorable to their proposition
ln this application. We believe that
th(>   people   behind    the   townBites
^"-l* He to the weBt of the Prince
u<*°rge    townsites,     are   using ob-
«f»ctlonist tactics in an endeavor to
a«i'n«iate the value of the railway
»«npanyB townsite, and to prevent
«"- marketing of that property^ Unas lute as possible, for, we underbid, the Natural Resources Becur-

deavor will perhaps   not be such a
marked success—financially.
The application will, of course, be
fought strenuously. To comply with
the application the railway commission would change the plans of the
Prince George townsite entirely, and
would establish a precedent which
would have
allowing townsite' promoters who
operate upon the future assured a
particular territory by railroad enterprises, to step in ahead of them in
the vicinity of their important points
and, having created large vested interests upon doubtful representations,
use the power of their argument to
obtain such . privileges as they had
advertised as assured advantages. In
other words the railway commission
would be making good the bluff of
the townsite promoter.

BASEBALL CLUB NBW
PREPAREBJOR SEASON
Trustee Cooke Re-elected-Plans
for Season's Games Discuss-
Opening Contest Probable
for May 24th.
A meeting of the baseball club was
held here this week. Mr. W. F. Cooke
who so successfully filled the delicate
position    of trustee    for   the paat
season, was elected to the same position for the ensuing season. To be
trustee    of a baseball team, where
such conditions exist between towns
as the healthy rivalry of the places
hereabouts, requires    the tact   and
diplomacy of a Disraeli,  the tenacity of a   suffragette,   tbe executive
ability of a Tammany Hall politician, and the courage ot a gladiator.
There is only one   character known
to northern   history    who   requires
these qualities, and    others—the referee, who   should go disguised and
be a two-gun man.
The meeting was well attended, and
the business of the team was speedily transacted. A proposal was advanced by which it ls hoped that the
usual Sunday baseball games may be
carried on during the coming summer. It is suggested that the game
on May 24th., shall be played on the
diamond at   Central    Fort George,
and that ot July 1st., on the South
Fort George   diamond. The Sunday
games, it   is suggested,   should be
played on a neutral diamond to be
made on   tbe    old- Indian    reserve.
This diamond   could be   easily laid
out on the land at the foot ot the
bill,   and it    ls suggested   that it
could   be   commanded    by a grand
stand.
The    Attorney    General's   department have, through the local police
officers, taken a stand against Sunday games   to which   admission   is
charged.   The   Herald,    in common
with every other opinion of a reasonable nature, stands for Sunday baseball.  On tbe   other hand,  however,
we   are of   the opinion    that this
vexed question should not conform to
thc opinion of the majority without
regard to   the objections raised on
the grounds of religious prejudice or
Sunday   observance.   Therefore   the
games should be played In a locality
where no residents can be disturbed
in any manner.
day he Btated that .^^^^^^^^
from Winnipeg to Prince Rupert
would leave the Manitoba city on
September 14th. 1914.
From the eastern end of steel the
distance to thiB place is now about
160 miles. Over the entire length of
this distance   .the   contractors   are
busy. There is a big Uattery of steam
shovels working    along   the Fraser
river, and many    of these   will be
scowed down stream for work on the
big cuts west of here as soon as the
stage of water will permit. The biggest earth   cut on the uncompleted
portion of the road lies on the Nechaco river between here and Fraser
lake. This cut will keep the shovels
busy for months,
Mr. Donaldson stated in Winnipeg
that the railway company will lay
298 miles ot    steel this year.  This
steel will be laid on the main line
from the eastern end ot the steel 162
miles Into Pronce George.  The two
bridges are    to be built across the
Fraser river, one here and the other
near the mouth of Bear river,  and
these Mr. Donaldson expects will be
ready for the steel by the time it
reaches there. On the main line trom
Prince Rupert,   steel Is   already at
Boulder Gulch, past Hazelton, and a
viaduct steel bridge now In course of
erection over the gulch will be completed by April 25. Work will proceed
steadily through   to Burns lake, a
distance of 115 mlles, on tracklaying,
at a steady rate of \\ miles a day.
The Herald does not expect to see
the steel here before March 1914. In
our opinion, based upon the expressions of opinion of men who are engaged in construction work, ths steel
will do well to   reach    the Willow
river by the end of the year, under
favonable   conditions.    The   Willow
river   is twenty    five miles up the
Fraser from 'this point.
Mr. Donaldson announces officially
that there are 524 miles between the
eastern and western ends ot steel. Ot
this distance he expects to build 302
miles this summer and leave 222
miles to be built next summer. The
vice-president also expects the two
ends ot steel tied up by September
the first, and the first train will
leave Winnipeg 14 days later. There
is much ballasting to be done, he
states, before his company can announce the inauguration ot a summer
schedule.

Local Manager Announces That
New Building Will be a Credit
This City—Financial Institutions Display Their Faith in the
Permanency of This Place.
Albert Johnson, proprietor of the
Hotel Northern, the pioneer hotel
man of the Fort George district, has
let a contract for the building of a
30x60 store and office building on a
lot adjoining his hotel on Hamilton
Avenue.
The building will contain two large
stores and will have offices on the
second floor. Work on the buildings
will commence immediately. The contract for building was awarded to
Messrs. Bronger & Flynn.
Mr. Johnson is continually showing his faith in the town by progressive methods and heavy investment. This new enterprise marks his
attitude still further.
WINNIPEG FIREBUG

Immeasurably    worse    than    was
ever dreamed by the local police is
the   terrible    record    which  James
Dodds, the firebug     set for himself
when he made a statement to Chief
ot police McPherson, says a Winnipeg despatch. The pyromaniac asked
to have a detective sent to his cell,
and on his arrival said he wanted to
talk to the    chief, as  he had been
thinking over all of his work and it
had been bothering him since his incarceration and he wished to relieve
his mind of the load he was carry-
The Royal Bank of Canada will
shortly let a contract for the building of a modern office building on
their property, which is situated at
the corner of Hamilton avenue and
Fourth street.
Mr. H. C. Seaman, manager ot the
branch, gave out this information
this week. "The plans for the building" he said, "are now on the way
here, and until they arrive I can
give no exact Information as to the
type ot building to be erected, but
you may be assured that it will be
a credit to the town."
The Royal Bank, and its predecessor, the Traders, has been doing
business here,for the past few years
in the building of the Fort George
Timber and Trading Company, on
Second Street. These premises, they
have long realized, were not adequate
for the rapidly Increasing banking
business which is being done here.
The officers of the bank investigated the situation very thoroughly
before coming to the conclusion arrived at, and ln announcing the
forthcoming bank building on Fourth
street, at this time, the Herald be- _,
lieves tbat a strong endorsement of
the stability and established importance ot this town is registered.
The Bank ot    Ottawa, which carries the account of    Messrs. Foley,
Welch,     ft    Stewart, will    open a
branch here    within   the   next few
months. It Is a    matter    ot   some
speculation as to where this branch
will be located,    and in    this connection The    Herald    believes tbat
the officers ot that institution will
appreciate tbe    Importance   ot serving the public trom tbe most convenient point, and we anticipate seeing the  building    of the    Bank ot
Ottawa also In South Fort George.
In contrast    to the   branches   of
banks   In the    Nechaco    townsites,
which occupy    rented premises, are
institutions here, the Bank ot British North America, the first bank to
open a branch .here, and the Royal
Bank of Canada. The Bank of Vancouver, located on the Nechaco, at
one time received a stipend of $200
a month, and may yet, "to protect
them against loss" as the promoter
on whose site they were located
once said on the witness stand.
Pat Campbell, who has been buying cattle for the B. C. Market, arrived here    yesterday with  eighteen
fat, lowing kine. Arrangements were
immediately made to assassinate the
animals to appease tbe beet hunger
of the   populace.   Beef has   been a
rare commodity here for some little
time, and the sight ot the kind-faced
cows, driven from silver brooks and
leafy  glades in thc sunny south to
lay  down   their lives   to  fill short
orders, gladdens the heart.
When the chief arrived Dodds lm- >       two flmly e8taMi8hed flnancial
mediately began to talk and started1 .        it. „._,. „, „,,,*._
by saying tbat he believed he was
responsible lor at least 200 fires In
Winnipeg and St. Boniface during
the past two years. The biggest of
these which he claims to have been
responsible for was the conflagration
in the Radford-Wright building on
March Ilth, 1912, which caused the
death of seven persons, five ot them
firemen. He said that he stood and
watched the bodies brought out and
helped to keep the crowd back. This
fire resulted   in  $250,000 damage to
property.
Dodds also claims that he started
the fire in the Rat Portage Lumber
Company on   May 14 of last year,
which did damage to the extent oi
$40,000    and   also   the    McKittrick
block last summer, which was damaged (or a similar amount. On June

set fire to the new convent being

Dodds also says that he started
many of the big fires In St. Boniface
and also in Winnipeg, and many
minor ones which did not get
a good start. His favorite scene ot
action was vacant buildings or places
which were not carefully guarded
and Into which he could get without
a great deal ol difficulty or danger.
It is estimated that he started fires

'I: FORT GEORGE HERALD
Published by the Northern Interior Printing Company. Limited
J. B. Daniell. President.
Devoted to the  Interests of the  Fort  George  District  and the  Northern
Interior of British Columbia.
m $3.00 i Wu ii .U>u.t
Ai.ciaj Rita ■ A-wkitw
THE HERALD has had cause to dwell on occasion upon the
deplorable manner in whieh the coast newspapers in this
province subjugate their policies and pollute the standard of
journalistic principle—this by allowing the power and influence
of their widely-circulated pages to be turned to account by private
individuals whose interests are wholly inimical with those of the
reading public they ostensibly serve.
No more glaring example of this condition has come to our attention than the campaign now being waged through the fallen
newspapers of this province in the matter of the Grand Trunk
Pacific Railway company's application to register their townsite
here under the name of "Prince George."
This campaign, which is forced upon the public in the guise of
news matter, in editorial comment, and even from the cartoonist's
allotted space, represents nothing more genuine than the desire
of a gang of  real estate operators,  headed by the  king of
them    all.    to    inveigle   the    railway    company    into    an
action nicely calculated to enhance the value and importance of
their townsite while depreciating that of the railway company itself.
To accomplish this, the calculating real estate broker, who
appropriated the name of Fort George by registration a few years
ago, realizes that a furore of public indignation must be produced.
This is easily attained.   Strewn over the countries of the world
are the thousands of people who have bought 25-foot lots in the
subdivisions which have been advertised for long past as "the
real Fort George" or "the legal, registered townsite of Fort
George."   These people have been led to believe that the subdivisions in which they have invested were, by the fact of the
significance of their registered name, vastly important in the
•cb-eme of things hereabouts.    That the name, Fort George-
applied  to an  old   Hudson  Bay  company  post, haled   from
the frontier oblivion to  identify a mass of speculative  subdivisions—only gained its notoriety from the fact that it was so
widely advertised in this connection, has not been taken into consideration at any time.   The railway company, whose intention
to make an important point of the place known as Fort George
before the days of townsites in these parts, has always b#en fairly
plain, finding that the name has been worked to death and that it
was the personal property of a corporation with which they had
nothing in common, and whose operations on occasions had caused them considerable annoyance, has decided to call their town-
•ite Prince George.    And they will.
Therefore the terrible lamentations, the denunciations, and the
newspaper attacks levelled at the G.T. P. and inspired by the
townsite promoter whose schemes, like those of other mice and
men, have quite often gone kerfluey.
We cannot see any law which might be applied to prevent the
registration of any name the G. T. P. may care to apply to their
townsite here. The Land Registry Act is a terse piece of legislation, likewise is section 69 of the Land Act They cover the
. situation. What the promoter hopes to accomplish by the false
impression of the situation which is being spread broadcast by
the moribund, dependent and abject journals which have so inadvisedly taken up his fight, on his own lines, we fail to see. It
is not possible that by such means as these it is hoped that the
Minister of Lands may be prevailed upon to withhold his approval
of the plans submitted by the railway company.
It is time that the government realized exactly what has been
transpiring up here for the past three years and called a halt upon
the obstructionist tactics aimed to maim real progress and aid
speculative propositions which stand at last before the public in
their true light. These tactics are created by pettifogging lawyers, crooked politicians and unscrupulous promoters, and they
should not be tolerated.
MO announcement of recent months indicates more pronouncedly the permanent nature of real estate values, or acknowledges as strongly the assured position of South Fort George as a
permanent and important business area, than the announcement
that the Royal Bank of Canada will shortly build a permanent
branch on their property on Fourth Street.
In the interest attaching to the plans of the Grand Trunk
Pacific Railway's Prince George townsite, a short distance to the
north of South Fort George, it is natural that the properties regarded as additions to that area will appear to the general public
to be of minor import as business or industrial sections. The
Herald has always realized the fact that in the future creation of
the Prince George townsite lies the best interests of this city.
The area ot the South Fort George townsite is limited to a total of
no more than 90 acres. The site is, without a doubt, the most
natural point for the commencement of development here, and by
the same token, it will continue to grow and develop from the
strong position we occupy today as the greater townsite of Prince
George, hard by our borders, grows and develops,
The Herald has always contended that this town should apply
for incorporation as a municipality under the name of South
Prince George, and this contention we strongly adhere to without
compromise or qualification. Had the interests which opposed
the attitude of The Herald in this stand, known then what they
do today, we do not believe that the fiasco of harking back to the
application for a name which marks us as something we are not-
*n addition to an unimportant mass of subdivisions-would have
occurred.
This matter of a name we commend to the serious consideration
of our readers, and we shall be glad to receive their views.

St it beds have been discovered 45
miles east of Prince Rupert on the G.
T p, Messrs. Mobley and White, the
discoverers, have an up-to-date drilling
outfit on the property and have erected
»small testing plant consisting of three
evaporating pans. So far five holes
have been drilled at considerable distances apart, some more than a mile
from others and all have struck salt at
depths varying from 50 to 250 feet.
Altogether the two gentlemen own
about 1000 acres. The property is situated within 200 feet of the railway and
400 feet of the Skeena river. Up to
the present about eight tons of salt
have been secured from the deposits.
The most thorough tests show that it is
absolutely pure and of the best quality.

The location of the Pacific Great
Eastern line between Lillooet and the
vicinity of Fort George, a distance of
290 miles, is now in progress. There
are two engineering parties in the field
and additional parties are to follow. It
is hoped to finish the permanent location before next fall. The work now
being undertaken is on the lower section of the route north of Lillooet,
actual construction on which is to be
undertaken this summer. Eleven hundred men are now employed in the
various camps along the route from
Lillooet south along Seaton and Anderson Lakes and beyond to Pemberton
Portage.
Hon. W. J. Bowser has issued orders
that no licenses should be granted for
the selling of liquor in Newport. The
government is following the policy of
preventing the sale of liquor in railway
construction camps, and although Newport is not yet connected with the Pacific Great Eastern Railway, Mr. Bowser considered it wise to prevent the
aale of liquor there at the start. Several licenses were asked for. The same
policy is ordered for Lillooe} and other
places along the line of the railway.
The "blind pigs" are being hunted

In striving to arrest a Nicola Indian
The Vancouver Sun, directed by
the notorious John P. McConnell, ol
Saturday Sunset tame, recently published a most amazingly irrational
editorial upon the question of the
name for the Grand Trunk townsite
here. History has shown that John
P. McConnell as a publisher, may be
entirely disregarded when his questionable talents as a Journalist are
turned loose on the question ot Fort
George. We would recommend the
directors of the Sun, however, to
take their promoter's editor in hand,
before he starts something that will
result in a total eclipse of the Sun,
in the same manner as the sun set
behind the hills ot oblivion on the
stricken Fort George field.
Mr. Montgomery, -a barrister, who
handles the situation with an able
pen, has presented us with a copy ot
a letter which he has asked the Vancouver Sun to publish. We reprint it
herewith:

Editor: The Sun newspaper, Vancouver, B. C:
Sir: In yojur    issue of April 1st.
last was    published an   article entitled)    "Fort    George   or    Prince
George." Having been a resident oi
South Fort George for nearly a year
and, I think,   knowing what I am
talking about, I wish to join issue
with several statements made in the
above    article   the    correctness   ot
which I dispute. The article referred
to states that "when tbe townsite
(meaning the Fort George townsite)
was fairly established, having, as it
has today, a    population  ot about
1000 etc." Now I unhesitatingly say
that this is a serious misstatement
of fact. The townsite of Fort George
contains today at the very outside
figure, 400 people, excluding railroad
employees that may be established in
camps on   the   townsite.   Not that
there is no room for more. Half a
million could easily be accommodated
without jostling each other. Excluding railroad employees I don't suppose that there are more than 2000
people within a radius of 25 miles ot
Fort George. This includes the bustling but little known town of South
Fort George. More than one hundred
years ago the Hudson Bay Company
established a   trading   post on the
Fraser    river and    called   it Fort
George. This   name,  I understand,
was never   registered.   This'trading
post adjoins the townsite ot South
Fort George, and lies about 2 iniles
trom the present   townsite o! Fort
George. The G. T. P. property lies
between the Hudson   Bay property
and Fort George   itself. It is well
known that in the past the Hudson
Bay Company have picked the best
sites for its Forts ln the localities
where they   have   been established.
It did not choose   any part ot the
present townsite of Fort George for
the simple reason that   lt was not
the best site.   Fort George is not
situate on the Fraser river but on
the Nechaco river, far inferior (rom
the   point of   view   of   navigation.
Again, in nearly all cases, and very
properly so, the   Indians have been
granted the best land in British Columbia. The G. T. P. have purchased
the Indian reserve No 1, and intend
to make it, I   hope, tbe   town ot
Prince George. If the writer of the
article referred to will ever condescend to let   me show him a bird's
eye view of   the   G. T. P.property
from a certain   point I know of, I
think that he will admit that it is
ideally fitted by nature tor the laying out of a beautiful city. Really
the following lines in the above article would, to put it vulgarly, make
a cat laugh. They read as follows:
"No one who has   ever visited the
scene would   argue   that    the   site
which the   G. T. P. was forced to
take as a last resort is to be compared with that of earlier and more
enterprising promoters." Let us examine this. If the early bird is to
catch the worm of location, surely
the Hudson's Bay   Company  ls entitled to breakfast first, to be followed by the original owners of the
South Fort George townsite?
But why was the Indian reserve
not chosen before the other town-
sites adjoining? Well, go to the
proper authorities and tell them you
wish to buy land held as an Indian
reserve and just see what kind of an
answer you will get. The G. T. P.
are performing a very great public
service by building a transcontinental railway and I presume that tht
powers that be realised that it
could tread where ordinary mortals
would be told to keep oft ths grass.
The people ot South Fort George
are seeking incorporation as a city
What We Have we Horn
FORT FRASER, Central British Columbia, has the ideal
townsite location on the entire line of the Grand Trunk
Pacific Railway in.British Columbia.      :      :      :      :
It has also many natural resources and advantages not possessed by other townsites.
It has a sparkling lake of fifty square miles of fresh water. Tremendous hydro-electric
power being developed at its very door. The largest tract of agricultural land to be found
in British Columbia. A healthful and ideal climate both summer and winter. One thousand
miles of navigable waters reach to and from Fort Fraser.
These Are Advantages Which Cannot be Taken Away
Again, it is a natural distributing centre for a vast territory, and with the incoming of the
Grand Trunk Pacific, Pacific & Hudson Bay Railway and other contemplated lines, its future
as one of the coming cities of Western Canada is assured.
FORT  FRASER
is already a good lively town with Government oflice, telegraph office, postoffice and various
lines of trade already established there.
Lots can be obtained at from $200.00 upwards with cash deposit of 10 per cent, cash, and
5 per cent, monthly without interest or taxes.

municipality under the name ot
South Fort George. They are only
too willing to let the G. T. P. call
their town Prince George, or any
other name it pleases. As the article
states tbe G. T. P. may be shortsighted but it seems to have a
pretty good pair of glasses to work
with.
Expressing merely my own opinion,
I would rather possess an inch of
land in the G. T. P. property than
an ell in the town of Fort George.

WILLOW RIVER
BRITISH COLUMBIA
At the confluence of the Fraser, Salmon and Willow Rivers.
The first town of importance to be established in Central
British Columbia on the Main line of the Grand Trunk Pacific
Railway. By those who are in close touch with the true
conditions, Willow River is regarded as being a town of
future great importance in the heart of "Canada's Inland
Empire." This fact, plus the fact that Willow River will be
an important lumbering, mining and agricultural centre,
makes property in this new town desirable from either a
business or investment standpoint. Willow River property
has been purchased by merchants and investors throughout
Canada and United States. Although the town was only
established October 16th, 1912, a number of lots have been
resold at decided profits, while other purchasers refuse to
sell at even twice the prices paid. The business portion only
of Willow River is now on the market—the survey of the
residence portion has recently been completed and this portion
of the town will be placed on the market in the near future.
There are a limited number of lots available in the business
portion at the original prices. Easy Terms. No Interest.
Cleai and perfect title direct from the Grand Trunk Pacific
Railway. The Original and Official TownBite of Willow River
is located on Lot 785; Station Site approved by the Board of
Railway Commissioners March 26th, 1912, Order No. 16179.

The old,    old story  of the small
boy,  tbe 22-rifle, and the accidental
