yesterday evening, under the
management of Mr. .J. Senior.
The dunce was a most successful affair.   •
Russell J'eden, of the Cook

dock of the B. ('. Express Company, at tlie foot of Fourth St.
Mr. Cooke is now in the east, in
connection with the purchase of
ii large mill for their Dome
Creek townsite enterprise. The
warehouses will lie used by the
company for the use of their
proposed steamboat, which, Mr,
Peden states, will be on the
river next summer.

The  public   meeting, held in.
th' Fori.   George  Theatre last
Saturday night, to discuss the
question  of    Municipal   Incorporation  as  it   will  affect  South
Fort George, was well attended
and thoroughly   representative. !
Mr. Charles E.  McElroy, General    Manager   of    the    Fort
George Trading    and   Lun '
Company Ltd., took the cl
at 8,30    and      introduced
subject.  He explained that the
object of t,he    meeting was to
acertain the general opinion of
tine  people    affected, and especially the property     holders, on
the important     question.    The
aim   of the    meeting, Mr, McElroy said, would be to invite
all argument and criticism upon
the subject, and, if the majority
should govern so, to take steps
to appoint an investigating co-
mittee   which     would   sift   the
matter     thoroughly,     and lay
their findings before the public
as shortly as possible. Mr. Ceo. j
E. McLaughlin   was   requested ]
to inform   the    meeting of the
impressions   he   had gained at.
Prince Rupert upon the subject,
stated     that   the    matter had
been    thoroughly    investigated
tlkere previous to incorporation, I
which immediately followed the
auction  sale     of the   townsite.
The   chairman   requested that
anyone   having    arguments  to
advance against   proceeding in
the matter should lay their objections   before    the   meeting.
Little    opposition   was  forthcoming  with    bhe exception of
objections raised by Mr. F. II of-
fercamp and Mr.  B.  Baker, on
the  grounds of     increased  taxation.  Mr.  Iloli'ercnmp did not
relish the idea of having to pay
running expenses and civic servants out of taxation receipts,
which, he assured the meeting,
would not be sufficient to defray these liabilities. Mr. Hof-
fercamp seems to be under an
impression that the city has
reached the zenith of its growth
and development. Under present,
conditions incorporation would
not be a step calculated to advance thu interests of such a
small community as this, but it
it is a step anticipating the
proper method of administration in the days of rapid development and expansion which
will come upon us with the advent of cheap transportation
and railroad construction. Mr.
Baker was more strenuous in
his opposition. He wanted to
hale tli.' whole proposition,
stillborn, to oblivion, lie stated
that he had seen instances of
cities that had incorporated to
the detriment of all concerned,
lie said we were premature,
to quote verbatum, "if we eat
our dinner when we weren't
hungry it woulden't do us any
good." Mr. Baker's simile created laughter. It was rather
irrelevant, but funny. If we sit
around and wait, • waiting
always for "all things bo come"
taking no healthy exercise of
body or mind, in time we shall
become dyspeptic; truly we
shall have no appetite to eat
then—at any time—and whilst
waiting, always waiting, real
live people will happen along
and we shall find more of our
public priveleges usurped, our
very independence gone, and our
progressive aims smashed, shattered and trodden in the dust—
if we heed th? barber-shop-
minor of opposition, such as
that referred to. The Herahl
had hoped to hear some strong
arguments agatEst the proposal, based upon sane reason-
j able criticism of the effects that
: this contemplated action would
| have upon our future. There
was no such criticism forthcoming, however, as apparently
the audinece did not contain
anyone who could speak with
authority    upon    the     subject.
I Such opposition will doubtless
appear when    a comprehensive
; digest of the matter is laid be-
fore the public at a later date.
The chairman called upon Mr.
J. B.  Daniell to lay before the
' meeting any knowledge of the
subject he may have gained in
bringing it before the public
generally in these columns. Mr.
Daniell stated that his advocation of incorporatioo was
based upon the peculiar conditions affecting    this town. The
i town, he said, was three years
old. The government had nob,
up to the present time, expended any money for improvements
within the boundaries of the
townsite. He. did not wish to'
criticise their expenditures in
public works throughout the
district, but in the town nothing had been done. Further the
government held one quarter of
the whole townsite which tl*ey
were not selling, thereby breaking up the growth of the city,
and contributing nothing towards the construction of the
streets, or the building of sidewalks past their property, as
they would if incorporation
were instituted. The time was
not far distant, he said, when
incorporation would be absolutely necessary. Tbe future of
South Fort George did not depend upon problematical development. It was practically assured. It would sit well upon
this community, as a town
alive to its importance in the

Grade Advantages of Grand Trunk Pacific Ry.
Tha wonderful advantages that will be possessed by the completed line of the Grand Trunk
Pacific railroad can not be better illustrated than by reference to the following statistical report upon the gradient economy as compared with other transcontinental roads:
Referring to the question of
incorporation a gentbman who
writes from Winnipeg states:
"I showed your article 'Time

pur citizens who have invested

once would greatly enhanse
values and would give the
present town such a prominent

recognized as the important

Of all the fool actions yet devised antl executed by the Nechaco river townsite interests,
the resolution passed by the
Fort George Board of Trade,
and supported by a petition
circulated broadcast, asking,
or rather demanding, that the
G. T. P. immediately issue a
statement regarding the exact
location of their station upon
the Indian Reserve here, is, by
a large measure, the most unmitigated piece of ad surdity as
yet launched upon the public by
the wildly struggling handful!
of men who are trying, vaguely
and ineffectually to create the
impression that development
here awaits the settlement of
the station location, and that
this location should be made
at a point removed from the
Fraser River and near the eastern boundary of the Natural
Resources Security Company's
mass of townsites.
The Fort George Tribune may
be appropriately termed the
house organ of the Natural Resources Security Company. It
dwells at length upon this
matter in its columns. The
Fort George Tribune has too
many editors; that, is its principal affliction. Every new
townsite manager that the
Vancouver promoter sends up
here to run his lot-maze, takes
a fling at molding public opinion through its columns. They
get things frightfully mixed.
Let us remind the Nechaco sheet
that its owners have already
informed the credulous ones
that have purchased lots upon
the strength of similar statements, just where the big railway company would place their
station. To quote his statement
let us refer to a circular letter
sent out from the office of the
Natural Resources Security Co.
dated January 3rd of last year.
It read as follows:
"To lot holders:
"The Grand Trunk Pacific
Railway have selected the site
for their passenger station at
Fort George, 4 blocks, less than
1320 feet, east of Fraser Avenue, Fort George townsite."
This letter was aparently devised to inspire confidence and
to drag in outstanding payments on lots. It ended with
the following statement over
George J. Hammond's name:
"Wo guarantee everything
stated above." When a copy of
the letter came into our hands
we told the public that the
effect of the letter was entirely
false. Then again later a statement eminating from the pres-
| ident of the townsite coimpany
was circulated to the effect that
he had paid the G. T. P. the
sum of 8200,000 for a location
of tho station upon tike Indian
reserve advantageous to his
company's sites. Needless to
say that statement was also
entirely false, and to hark back
still ..further the public will remember how "Toronto Saturday
Night" drew attention to the
methods of the Natural Resources Security Company, who
wore then moving the proposed
station around on their maps
of the Indian Reserve to suit
the requirements of the particular property they were advertising for sale along its border.
And now, lo and behold, the
personal organ of the promoter
wants to know wnere tlye G. T.
P. station is going to be !
The Tribune states that tho
exact location of the station on
the Indian Reserve is a question
that "lies between this country
und its future." Such a statement is laughable. Just why
the fate of tho country should
hang upon so slender a thread
we fail to see. The Tribune's
owner, aforementioned, does
two   things   excellently—lying,

Saturday, .January 20th,,  1912
TWt 1! E  publicity    which The
*      Herald  has given  to the
methods of unscrupulous town-
site promoters in   this vicinity
has had   the   desired    effect  of
forcing a nioderstion of advertised statements    to a certain
degree, The Herald  is not  particulary devoted to expounding
a policy of denunciation against
any person, place or thing, un-
lesss such  policy  he  reasonably
necessary  to   serve  thereby  the
best interests of   the public at
large.  To confide  in you, dear
reader, it does not   pay.  Newspapers, generally speaking, will
not     denounce     get-rich-quick
propositions,     for     from such
questionable     enterprises   they
receive    a most profitable revenue, as the   basis   of exploitation used by flim-flam promoters   is almost    invariably extravagant advertising. We have
exposed certain townsire fakirs
operating up here from a sense
of consideration to th.it investing public, to whom every newspaper owes a responsible duty,
from a close   inside    knowledge
of every phase of the situation.
Although    we   feel gratified to
note the effect of our light upon
townsite    advertising,   yet the
ultimate aim and object of our
campaign can not  yet   be said
to have   been    achieved. Diagnosis of the situation shows an
extroadinary   stale    of affairs,
which     commenced     with   the
floatation   and    booming of a
wild-cat    townsite by     an unscrupulous     promoter,    whose
career previous to that venture
had been marked by precarious
occupation as a bucket-shop operator   around   Chicago,    and
whose   operations   along  that
dubuious   lines   of   human endeavour    had been   marked by
the fleecing of the public. Well,
the wild-cat townsite grew. The
game entirely suited the bucket-
shop shark and to it he applied
his vast experience of advertising       methods,       lobby-work,
bribery    and    corruption—and
the townsite continued to grow
and grow.  It was a great area
of land  chopped  up into little
25-foot   frontage   lots, and by
and by it was forced ahead until it crossed the surveyed line
of   the <!. T.  P. railroad   and
halted,  Hushed   with   the spoils
of   ill-gotten     gain,     upon the
brink of a river. John Houston
the veteran newspaperman, saw
the danger, antl started out to
slay the monster when  it  first
appeared, but l.o died to,, soon.
The promoter then  threw back
a handful of the wealth he had
obtained from the public under
false pretences, to apply on im- i
proving the     rim of his town- !
site,    tor the    sak(. 0f appearances, and seeking also to drag
developmanl lo Ins site so th
he might continue
along his    favoriti
or elsewhere.
We fought; other
viously out for the
opted his cause, and his town-
eites continued to sell under
gross misrepresentation. The
Herald exposed, the newspaper
blacklegs boosted and the sauve
promoter smiled and raked in
the com. The promoter has a
newspaper of his own, publish-
in the clearing at the outer rim
ol his lot-maze. It now seeks
special priveleges from the rail-
wny company for the conglomeration of townsites, which concessions the investing public
whom are distinct and seperate
from the long-distance buyers
on the bucket-shop ,,/an's
sucker list ', want elsewhere,
lhe promoter's organ bases its
plea upon the "millions of dol-
nrs worth of property that
Have been bought and sold."
Stop    and    think.   If a man
"Rogue's gallery" of a town in
the state of Illinois, can come
into British Columbia and
townsite lands by the thousand
acres anywhere where they will
sell at long distance, secure in
th' knowledge that the vast interests influenced to purchased
by misrepresenting advertising,
will eventually light for recognition upon the basis of the invested sum represented, whilst

and expansion, to take immediate steps lu control our development and improvement
policy as largely as possible.
Mr. Daniell outlined the policy
of the government in regard to
the measure as gleaned from
the terms and necessary procedure laid down in the Municipal Incorporation Act. Several other gentlemen spoke
briefly in support of the
movement. After the discussion
a vote was taken upon the
matter of appointing an investigating committee, which motion was earried by a large
majority. The following gentlemen were nominated: J. B,
Daniell, President, Northern Interior Printing Co Ltd: Chas,
Iv McElroy, General Manager,
Port George Trading and
Lumber Co, Ltd. II. C. Seaman
Manager, Traders Hank of
Canada. M. C. Wiggins and
(Jeo. E. McLaughlin, Manager,
The Northern Lumber Co.
Tl.*.? meeting adjourned after
the appointment of the committee. About one hundred
people were present, and all
the large property holders were
present with the exception of
a few gentlemen, a canvass
amongst whom elicits tlie fact
that they are in accord with
the movementi.

and advertising. He has done
all sorts of other things that
shadow him through life, and
because lie will not break away
from very questionable promotion methods his past will (ind
him out. The moving linger
writes, and the writing remains
always, long after the linger
has crumbled to dust.
Now for the benefit of tl.o
peop,e who do not know that
The Tribune is exploiting the
fact that it is assisting to stir
up a mare's-nest, let us inform
the public at large that the G.
T. P. have acquired the Indian
Reserve here for townsite purposes. A part of map No. 807,
deposited in the Kamloops Registry Oflice, shows the G. T. P.
railway grounds in Indian Reserve No. 1 here, which, according to the plans specified, cross
the northern end of the reservi.
from the Fraser river to the N.
\\. corner. The actual station
might be anywhere between the
extremes of the grounds shown
as reserved for station purposes
on the plans, or these plans
might be set aside if a revision
survey altered the route ever so
slightly, but in any event let it
be borne in mind that the Railway Commission of Canada has
to be satisfied that the best interests of tihe public are being
served before any railway concern can settle the location of
a station site, therefore if the
way-back townsites succeeded
in influencing the G. T. P. in
the location of their railway
station, by disguising their motive under a   vol r of public-
spiritedncss, on application of
the public the matter would be
thoroughly investigated, Let us
quote the "Dominion Railway
Act"  in respect   to  ihe  matter:
ing such  petitions    as the one
circulated in this absurd move- j
ment. The railroad lownsite is
not,   as   yet,     even    surveyed,;
therefore it is premature to ask j
for the   exact     location of the
depot    vvb'ch,  if     made,  might
nol   properly    conform     lo the
scheme of their lownsite survey
when that is made later on.
Let us rest assured that when
(he time comes the railroad
company will make their an-
nouncement through the proper
channels, and in the meantime
fool petitions of townsite interests will cause them nothing
but amusement and annoyance.
