SURVEY PASTIES
FOR LOWER PEACE
Edmonton, Ajn'.ii 2.*—Under orders from the topographical surveys branch of the department
of the interior, three parties are
goW'ig up into the Lower Peace
River country this spring to run
base lines, subdivide and report
on the nature of the country and
to what particular kind of farming it is best adapted.
J. A. Fletcher, Dominion land
surveyor, will leave shortly for
Sawiidge. Frem there he will
proceed to Peace River Crossing,
and will go down the Peace beyond the Buffalo Head country
on the first water.
His party, which is largely
made up, will number twenty-
three, and will not return until
November or December. His
three assistants, axemen and
transit men are already engaged,
Mr. Fletcher's work this year
will be to survey the 27th base
line from the Loon River, and
the 26lh base line from the 18th
range to the fifth meridian,
PROHIBITION OF
WORKMEN TO O.C.
Government Will Try to Prevent
Entrance of Artisans and Laborers to This Province.
Ottawa, April 2,—The government has decided to extend for
another six months the order-in-
council prohibiting the entrance
of all artisans and laborers into
British Columbia. The present
order-in-council, which was-pMS-
ed in December, expired Tuesday. The order while originally
designed to prevent an influx of
Orientals into British Columbia,
affects immigrants of all nations
and is applicable to newcomers
from American ports as well as
from abroad. The regulation
cannot thus be interpreted by
Asiatic nations as di,scrimination
against them.

country's development wijll receive an immense stimulus from

Wl i!e we ,ire a pod-fearing bunch
down al Ke*nnedy-Blair's, and have
an implicit faith in the morals
taught iib in those famous old passages which say: "Do unto others
as you would have others do unto
you"; and that all things shall pan
out for the eood to those who continue to hike on the straight and
narrow trail. Yet we have a profound respect for that old proverb
which says : Keep vour powder dry.
Figuratively speaking, we have
been keeping our powder dry in
making preparation for the great
spring trade, just now beginning to
move.
You know that we have a great intuitive capacity, we knew a year
ago that they would be digging the
Pig out of South Fort George by the
spring, and in all probability that
they would be digging it north before the end of summer. These
presentments have already materialized.
We knew that it would require a
great many thousand men to complete this project, and that every
man would require a hat, a suit of
underwear, a top shirt, a pair of
suspenders, a jumper, a pair of
overalls, a pair of box, a pair of
shoes, and several pounds of snuff,
and we sent away and ordered these
goods accordingly.
We knew that each contractor would
require a complete line of camp
granitcware, besides axes, shovels,
picks, mattocks, etc., and we sent
away and ordered accordingly.
We lincw that there would be a
groat bunch of classy people arrive
here from the cities that have been
brought up with a silver spoon, and
that the slightest deviation from the
whims of a pampered palate would
produce a shock as a flutter of the
earth upon a scismagraph, and we
sent away and ordered our fancy
groceries accordingly.
We knew that there would be a
great drop in the freight rales and
that, we would have nn immense
turnover and we cut our prices accordingly. And if you will come
into our store .nd let us talk it over
we shall certainly cunvbice you accordingly.
P.S.-Don't forget our gents' furnishing and shoe store In the Blair
Building, where you shall line] your
humble servant who shall treat you
