THE COBWEBS GATHER
GOVERNMENT BUILDING SITE STILL
AN UNDECIDED PROBLEM   WILL
MATTER END IN A FIASCO''
When Premier McBride was here eight weeks
ago he investigated personally the local situation
and must have arrived at a mental decision regarding the relative merits of the claims put forward
by the two townsites here as prospective sites for
the offices of the district agent of his government.
Premier McBride is a man of decision. He is also
a keen observer and, being a politician, is entirely
capable of separating, by a simple mental process,
the legitimate claims of the trusting public from
the insolent demands of a corporation. The public
v;ant the government buildings located in the town
here for their convenience. The "interests" want
these interests on their townsite -for advertising
purposes- and after eight weeks' time, being in
possession of all the facts, Premier McBride appears unable to arrive at a decision.
The need of a resident government agent here
next spring is obvious. Fort George is the new
distributing centre for the whole interior section.
Barkerville is the last place in the district where
the government business should be transacted, owing to its position on the map. Sixty years ago,
when the gold was in the gravel, Barkerville was
the capital of the interior. Today, its golden glories past, it serves as a seat from which the enormous volume of government business from the developing sections of the district is transacted.
In a warehouse on the waterfront here lies the
material for the construction of the offices, complete from office furniture to steel goal. The contractors, who were to do the building, have long
since left. It was not necessary to send in contractors to do this job. There are local men perfectly
capable of handling the contract, and if the government wants to save expense, it will be let by
public tender.
There is a clique in Victoria fighting for the Natural Resources Security Co.'s interests. They are
a powerful clique. They want the buildings on the
Nechaco river townsite, because it pays them to
want it there. The Natural Resources Co. are advertising every day the fact that the government
buildings are on their site, and by so doing are
making the government of British Columbia a
party to the sale of lots on their property under a
misrepresentation. If a decision was arrived at by
the Premier, whatever it is to be, this stigma would
be removed.
We have been told that Bob Green figured in a
deal which transferred one of the latest additions,
a pre-emption, to the Natural Resources Co.'s town-
sites.
It is rumored that he netted $10,000 on the deal.
The pre-emptor, who let Bob he of the grass-colored name-in on the deal, went to Victoria as an
emissary of the "interests," when the deluge
broke out, which stopped the work of building the
offices in the wrong place. Now, whether the president of the British Columbia Conservative association is working in the same interests as his journalistic foe, "Bruce," or not, we are not prepared to
state, but as a Conservative organ we wish to point
out that in the event of the government deciding
against the interests of the public, in favor of a corporation, presided over by aliens, a roar will be
raised in this section which will echo and re-echo
along the marble halls of the Capitol, and the good
results wrought here during the last election will
be totally obliterated at the next.
A University commission was called into being to
decide upon the location of the Provincial University by the government. Their decision was received, and in spite of strong claims from other
sources, it will be acted upon.
The government agent formed a government
building commission here in July, every man in this
section ffad an opportunity of expressing his views.
That commission unanimously decided upon the location of these buildings, but up to the present
their decision has been ignored and the people
want to know why.

Malcolm McNevin, superintendent of the Black-
water and Fort George wagon road, arrived in
town early in the week. He reports the road complete from end to end. The grades are light and
a first-class sleigh road for the winter season can
be relied upon as a route of supply. Before the
road is in shape for heavy wagon traffic considerable work will yet have to be done to improve the
drainage and roadbed. This work should be undertaken early in the spring. Mr. McNevin has a
gang working on the construction ot the road nom
Mud river over the Rognass survey. He is at present engaged upon the first government building
in South Fort George.
A conservative estimate placed on the hay crop
of the Bulkley valley — a continuation of the Nechaco valley-for this year, coming from one of the
best posted men in that section, is 3500 tons. This
is by far the largest crop ever harvested there, resulting from a good year and more land being
brought under cultivation. No estimate is put on
the amount of grain, but a number of ranchers
state that their crop ripened well and was fully up
to expectations, says the Omenica Herald.
Potatoes did not do well and the crop this year
is below the average, estimated to be not over one-
third the yield to the acre that it was last and previous years. Some of the farms, visited, showed
little if any reduction in quantity from the average
and the tubers were of good quality. In the absence of an outside market, potatoes are only
raised for local use and are not a large part of the
farmer's output.
No one can travel through the valley without realizing that there is a great future ahead of it.
The depth and richness of the soil, many places
being a black loam three or four feet deep, accumulated from ages of growth and decay of vegetation, and the fact that wild grasses and weeds
grow higher than the head of a man on horseback,
prove the contention sufficiently.
An application was made to the provincial government on the 10th inst. by the G. T. P. railway
for permission to employ Mongolians on their line
oftvork through British Columbia. The application was not entertained by the Conservatives.
The government's trunk road building program
in the province was voiced by C. H. Lugrin at a
meeting of the board of trade, Victoria, on the 13th,
when he stated he had been informed by the minister of public works that not only would trans-
provincial roads be connected so as to make a continuous highway from the coast to Alberta, but
also a north to south transprovincial road would be
built. The latter will be a continuation of the old
Cariboo trail, which will follow the east bank of
the Fraser river to Fort George, thence by the Nechaco valley to the divide separating the Nechaco
valley from the Bulkley and by the Bulkley valley
as far as Hazelton. The north and south road would
be between 500 and 600 miles in length. The provincial trunk road building policy involved construction of over a thousand miles.

The Victoria board of trade has taken up with
the board of railway commissioners of Canada the
complaint of excessive charges on telegrams dispatched from Vancouver to Fort George. The secretary of the commissioners had taken the matter
up with the general solicitor of the C. P. R., who
stated that messages from Fort George are dispatched via Ashcroft, going from the latter point
to Blackwater by Dominion government telegraph,
from where the message was 'phoned. Over the
Dominion government wire and phone the railway
company had no control, its service terminating at
Ashcroft. The charges now made from Victoria
were 25 cents for ten words as far as Ashcroft, 75
cents from Ashcroft to Blackwater, and a further
75 cents from Blackwater to Fort George, between
which points the message is phoned. The board of
trade council has decided to take up the matter
with the Hon. Wm. Templeman who, it is hoped,
will use his influence with the Dominion government to have a reduction made in the charge on
the line which is federally owned.
 *	
William West, a bona fide pre-emptor, who is located on Fifteen-mile lake, on the Blackwater road,
was in town this week, on his way out to Ashcroft
and Cranbrook, where he goes to close up business
connections in order to devote his entire time to
the working of his pre-emption next spring. The
location was made early in the year and considerable work has been done since then. A five-
room house has been erected, several acres placed
under cultivation, a lot of grubbing done and a
co-operative boat built by himself and other ranchers for transporting supplies, etc., to and from the
pre-emptions which skirt the lake. The lake is
four miles long, with a breadth of one. The lake's
approach is a pebbly beach, with gradually rising
slopes of rich black loam. There is good timber in
the vicinity, and a small sawmill is in contemplation. Fish abound in this lake, such as trout, ling
and white fish. The name on the map for this lake
is Nads II Nich- Indian-and most of the locators
are desirous of having it changed to Fifteen-mile,
owing to their inability to pronounce it in one
breath. There are eight resident locators there at
present, among whom are James Fife, Max Bour-
go, Frank West, William West, Maurice Quain,
William Kenier. W. West comes back in December.
TINHORN PRE-EMPTORS
THE MEANEST CLASS OF "SPECULATOR"
IS THE MAN WHO PRE-EMPTS
PSEUDO TOWNSITE LAND
Every pre-emptor in British Columbia is a protege of the provincial government. Absolute observation of his rights are amongst the
most sacred responsibilities of the administration in Victoria. The government encourages in
every way the home-seeker who would build for
himself a domicile upon their unalienated lands,
till the soil and transform the wild into man's habitation, pleasing to the eye, adding to the province's development.
Price Ellison, who has just resigned the portfolio of lands, in order that he might assume t'^
greater charge of handling the province's finance,, *
did much for the pre-emptor. Before he abandoned
his chair in the lands department he set aside great
areas for pre-emption only. His map of the northern interior, showing the reserves in red, looks as
though he had upset the red ink bottle in the middle of it and rolled it promiscuously around without discrimination.
This is all as it should be. The pre-emptor is the
bona fide settler. The hewer of wood and drawer
of water, who wins his land holdings by the sweat
of his brow. In two years from the time he plants
his stake he may obtain absolute title, confirmed
with the great seal of the province and the signature of our Lieutenant-Governor. To obtain which
he must conform to the lenient requirements of the
Land act regarding the improvement of his quarter section.
There are, however, pre-emptors and pre-emp-
tors. The man, honest in intention, who is looking
for a good piece of land, suitable for farming purposes, and the tinhorn pre-emptor who seeks a
quarter section in proximity to possible "townsite"
lands, regardless of its agricultural fitness, seeking
to scrape through with the barest possible improvement requirements and relying on some friendly
neighhors to perjure themselves regarding the legal
requirements of his "residence" when applying for
a certificate of improvement.
The operations of these moneyless speculators are
common to all rising frontier centres. Of course,
they have a perfect right to win a jack-pine flat by
pre-emption, and to sell it for fabulous figures if
they conform to the requirements of the act in so doing, but our article is prompted by the acts of these
would-be subdivision owners who stake over the
prior rights of purchasers in the hopes that the department will discriminate in their favor, being
"bona fide" pre-emptors.
The Liberal organs still raise their howl against
the sale of government lands. Their editors are
basing their arguments on theories which would
have done them credit five years ago. The sale of
the pick of the interior lands by the government at
absurdly low figures, at that time, is to be deplored; but if our contemporaries, who are against
the government's policy, only knew from actual experience how beneficial to the province's finances
is the sale of the lands now being acquired, they
would shut up. Enormous blocks of land have been
taken up during the year past, which would not
have been settled by pre-emption in the next half
century. The purchasers are paying a wild land
tax of 4c per acre on these areas until brought under cultivation. They will populate these areas when
the G. T. P. is an accomplished fact, for those who
can afford to buy these lands are the farmers who
have passed through the pioneering period in other
territory and have no need to do so again. There is
room for thousands of pre-emptors in this northern
interior country. If they are bona fide settlers they
will soon locate on good farming land. If they are
of the tinhorn class their wail will be heard again,
after planting their stake on the other fellow's
land, and taking oath that they are applying for
vacant land, and when later their sins have found
them out and they are informed that their application is void.

"Farmers in the vicinity of Dawson have finished digging the potato crop," says the Dawson
News. "Hundreds of tons, worth many thousands
of dollars, are represented in the Klondike potato
crop for the year. Some of the growers have as
much as $6000 to $8000 worth taken from single
farms of 70 to 80 acres. The price they obtain,
averaging the receipts for the full winter, is 5c to
6c per lb. The potatoes this season are said to be
of exceptional quality. The crop is probably under that of last year in quantity, but the quality is
said to be superior." I

CITY AND DISTRICT
J. II. Gray, Mrs, Gray, Miss Gray
ami Miss Pierce arrived in town Thursday evening, having come over the trail
from Quesnel. -Omenica Herald, Oct. 1.
Bob Alexander returned from Alberta this week, having piloted two Englishmen, Messrs. Craig and Home, from
this point to Edmonton by the Giscombe
1'urtage ami Peace River route. The
trip was made in thirty-two days. This
is a trip that will be made by many of
the more venturesome globe-trotters,
who want to tell how they did it, during coming years. Hob tells us that
Edmonton is growing into a beautiful
city, which will some day be compared
with Fort George.
The "B. X." arrived here on Sunday
last for the first time since the accident of some weeks ago. The big boat
brought in the largest cargo ever carried into South Fori George by a steamboat, 138,001) pounds. The damage sustained in her recent accident is scarcely
noticeable.
The Fort George & Alberta Telephone
Co. intend to install an exchange and
local service in town next spring.
The Chilco arrived from the south on
Monday last with a load of freight consigned principally to Messrs. Seebach
& Hubble, at Giscombe Portage. She
left on Tuesday for the latter point,
delivering her load and returning here
by Wednesday.
The Vancouver Board of Trade advocates the advisability of spending two
or three millions in making a harbor at
the mouth of the Fraser. The same sum
spent on river improvements would
make the Fraser navigable from the
mouth to Tete Jaune Cache. The harbor could come later.
A prosaic English contemporary con-
deirs the hobble skirt. In a scathing
editorial it calls for its utter abolition.
We have read much comment upon this
ultra-fashiona'ble mode, but up to the
present South Fort George has been denied the priviledge of gazing upon such
an attire, If any of the ladies hereabouts own such a costume we would
entreat them to don it just once before
parliament passes its act preventing the
hobbling of ladies.
T. J. Templeton, a member of the
firm of Gore & McGregor, returned
from a business trip to Victoria this
week.
Alexander Faulds, of the G. T. Lands
Co., of Vancouver, is reported in a
Prince Rupert paper as having recently
covered three thousand miles of northern British Columbia by canoe, horses,
•tage, steamboat and afoot in ten days
less than two months. Last year Mr.
Faulds covered over a hundred thousand
acres of this section of the interior
with legal posts in half that period.
The Natural Resources Security Co.
are circulating a petition to have the
Nechaco river dredged in order that the
steamboats can land at their townsite.
Mr. Burden, a P. L. S., recently surveyed the river and reports the necessity of closing the mouth of several
Rioughs, in order to give the main channel the benefit of all the water. The
work would aid the steamboats in
reaching the upper Nechaco, but the
business of the boats at the Nechaco
river townsite will not warrant such an
expenditure as would be necessary.
N. C. Clank, head of the Fort George
Lumber & Navigation Co., accompanied by Dr. J. K. McLennan and J. A.
Adamson, two prominent financial men
from Winnipeg, arrived by canoe late
Thursday night from Fraser lake, where
the party spent several weeks looking
over possible lines for investment. The
Manitobans have had exceptionally
line weather in which to travel through
this unpeopled section and the impressions formed will bear fruit the incoming season. The party leave on the
"B.X." tomorrow,
