In 1901 Vancouver had a
population of 27,000; today
it has over 150,000. In 1903
its assessed property was
$22,936,835. Today it is
near $250,000,000. British
Columbia had 178,657 people in 1901, today it has over
400,000.
Last year British Columbia produced over $300 for
every man, woman and child
in the Province.
Yet, up to now, British
Columbia has had only one
railway—the Canadian Pacific—which barely skirts
the United States boundary.
Vancouver is only 156
miles above Seattle, while
t h e Northern boundary
of the Province is over 600
miles further North.
The Grand Trunk Pacific
is the first railway through
the immensely rich Central
British Columbia.
Its Pacific Coast teminus,
Prince Rupert, is 550 miles
nortii of Vancouver.
Trains arc now running
from Prince Rupert east to
the first freight and passenger division point, Smithers.
The entire line, from Atlantic to the Pacific, will be
completed in 1914.
Smithers—named by the
Grand Trunk Pacific after
its highest official, Mr. Al
fred Waldron Smithers
Chairman of its Board of
Directors, is tlie railway's
only division headquarters
between Prince Rupert and
Prince George, a distance of
some 460 miles through one
of the richest belts ol West-
em Canada.
Smithers is the dominating centre of the [amous
Bulkley Valley, the lirst
large agricultural area 1,ithe
Grand Trunk Pacific east of
Prince Rupert.
The Bulkley Valley has
300,000 acres of rich argicul-
tural land, proven large deposits of coal, silver and lead
and almost inexhaustible
water supply.
Smithers was selected by
the railway company inr its
freight and passenger divisor* headquarters and tiiu
town is owned by the Grand
Trunk Pacific Railway, lt
is one of the only two such
division points on the Grand
Trunk Pacific in British
Columbia, the other being
Prince George.
A new railway through a
new, virgin, rich, country
has created an opportunity
for you to share in the prosperity that will he 1
when its new line is
and the gigantic res
of the country develc
reated
ipened
ources
THE OPPORTUNITY IS SMITHERS
Smithers combines the
two supreme advantages
that have created large cities in the West—tributary
natural resources and support and backing of a transcontinental railway.
Smithers has the stupendous wealth of the rich
Bulkley Valley behind it —
agriculture, mines, water
water power. It also has the
backing and support of the
Grand Trunk Pacific Railway, not only because it is
the railway's official town,
but also because it is one of
its only two freight and passenger division point in British Columbia.
The railway company will
spend upwards of $250,000
at Smithers for shops, round
house and other terminal
improvements and freight
and passenger division point
facilities in Smithers, besides employing over 200
men at this point.
Approximately $50,000 has
already been spent in improvements at Smithers,
clearing    the site, grading
streets, building sidewalks,
etc.
Smithers is a hustling,
busy community today. In
June it had less than ten
people, today it has uver
450. It has a bank, a .sawmill, two newspapers, a large
number of stores and homes,
Over seventy-five new, permanent buildings arc under
construction. Every train
brings new people and new
settlers.
Smithers will have an
electric light plant and a
modern water system. It
will have railway shops and
a railway payroll, lt will
be the distributing point for
the entire Bulkley Valley.
Being the nearest large
agricultural area to Prince
Rupert, Bulkley Valley is
bound to become that city's
chief source of supply ior its
foodstuffs. Its products will
come through its natural,
logical centre—Smithers.
Central British Columbia
is just entering a period of
wonderful activity through
the opening of thc Grand
Trunk Pacilic.
Now is the time to heed the opportunity at Smithers
through the safest, cleanest and most satisfactory medium
of investment—real estate in an established community.
Anticipate the rush of settlers who follow in the wake ol
a new railway with a good location in Smithers now. the
secret of the great fortunes of the West is the buying ol
real estate in growing towns before their greatest growtli.
The best opportunity at Smithers is now—before thc new
transcontinental is completed. Price of lots is low.

There are many theories as to the
way the fire started, but the most
plausible one, from the accounts of
those who reached it first, is that
the cresote which had collected in
the long length of horizontal pipe
running from the stove in the smith-
west corner to the chimney, caught
fire from the great heat in the
stove and caused the stovepipes to
melt and telescope, falling to the
floor. Tho first man to get inside
the building said the stovepipes
were all down und the flames were
bursting out of the stove. In the
afternoon C. W. Moore had put on
a fire about 3:30 o'clock in order to
have the theatre warm for night,
when tho Preethought society were
to hold a meeting.. Later in the
afternoon William Bell, who is also
interested iu the Freethought "society, looked at the fire, finding it all
right. It is thought that the stove
became overheated later on and set
the creosote ablaze..
People noticed flames coming
out from the front of the building,
and tho fire boll was rung by D. A.

loud enough, however, he broke the
wire. This little incident warned
the people that in case of future
fires the bell would not be efficient,
so Albert Dollenmayer with characteristic generosity, has offered to
loan the whistle from the steamer
Robert C. Hammond, which will be
put above the hotel and connected
with the engine room to be used as
a fire alarm. A pump will also be
Installed in the engine room of the

very great force to the streams of
water. There were only about 300

1000 extra feet ordered some time
ago by the fire committee ts still on
the road.
Fred Manahan, who was on duty
at the telephone switchboard when
the fire started, notified every house
that had telephone connection, working long after closing hours. When
the fire at one time threatened to
turn south along Central avenue he
tried to get South Fort George to
summon their fire brigade to assist,
but the office was closed. In case of
future disasters a plan has been suggested of leaving the manager's
house connected with both exchanges after closing hours. Other^ime-
ly suggestions are that the fire brigade be supplied wlt_ double-headed axes, light ladders and lanterns.
The children's Christmas celebration was to have been held in the
Alamo theatre next week. The only

BETTEK FIRE PROTECTION
SEEDED.
An Interview with Fire Chief
Campbell appears on another page of
this issue in which he suggests certain improvements that might be
made to further insure property in
this town from loss by lire. The
idea is a good one and will commend
itself in i ery citizen having the
Interests of the community at heart.
Six months ago the apparatus which
wo now haw or hand was purchased, and at that Lime it was suf-
! ior the demand. So rapidly
lias the town grown since then, however, and as many new buildings
have been erected with greatly increased property valuation, that
more fire-fighting appliances becomes an Iraperai ve need. The ad-
dtt'ou of two badger engines and the
installation of fire alarm boxes as
suggested by the chief would not
entail the expenditure of a very
large sum of money while it. would
greatly reduce the danger of a serious cinll igration.
We trust the citizens wil respond
to the chief's appeal for funds in
the same generous manner that has
characterized their response io ap-
pi .ils in this matter heretofore.
light package delieries of   the   express companies.
The details of the system are still
in the hands of the postmaster-general's oflice at Ottawa, and the local
postmasters have not yet been instructed to commence upon the arrangements in their districts. So that
it will be seen a great deal of work
has to be done yet in the organization by January 1 of the parcel post
system in Canada.
PARCEL I'OST SYSTEM
TO BE INAUGURATED
Details   Concerning   Postal  Project
Which Wil Conic Into Operation Jan. 1.
The postoffice department is working out the details of the new or
rather resurrected, parcel post system which will e inaugurated
throughout the Dominion on the
first clay of the new year. The Hon.
Mr. Pelletier, postmaster-general,
has been studying the parcel post organizations in operation in Great
Britain and the I'n'ted States, and
while the Canadian system will be
modelled somewhat on the lines of
both, it is understood that it will
differ in several important respects
from either. No official statmeent as
to details or rates is yet available,
but from information gathered from
well-informed sources the following
outline is given by way of forecast
of what the new syste mwill be.
The British parcel post regulations
provide for a unifor mrate all over
the kingdom, but in the system inaugurated at the beginning of this
year in the* United States, owing to
the greater distances to be covered,
the rate is regulated by a series of
zones. While the necessity of a
varying rate is generally* recognized
in the States, it is also admitted that
the zone system is a complicated one
and difficult to handle.
ln the new parcel post organization, now being worked out for
Canada, the principle of a varying
rate has had to be adopted, but it
will be applied in much simpler form
than it has been across the border.
The two cases Of Canada and tbe
United States are not quite parallel
In this consideration of distance, as
the provincial chain from Nova
Scotia lo British Columbia is an easier proble int ban to provide facilities

SUFFRAGISTS WOULD
AMEND  CONSTITUTION
Washington, D. C, Dec. 1—"We
demand an amendment to the United States constitution enfranchising
women," was the theme of the formal opening ot the 45th annual convention of tbe National American
Suffrage Association at a mass meeting here today.
A three-hour meeting was held in
a theatre packed to the doors with
eager listeners. The speakers were
Mrs. Helen Ring Robinson, member
of the state senate of Colorado; Dr.
Anna Howard Shaw, president of
the association; Mary Anderson, a
member of the I. W. W.; Margaret
Htnckey, a laundry worker of New-
York who pleaded in behalf of '"the
underpaid and underfed women industrial workers," and Rose Wins-

for women instead of a minimum
one.
LADY AS BARRISTER
Proves Splendid Cross Examiner, Bat
Has Meagre Knowledge
of Law
Edmonton, Dec. 12.—Mrs. Amy H.
Keane, author and poet and editor
and publisher of a week-end journal
in Edmonton, appeared in the supreme court of Alberta here in the
role of a barrister to deny her liability for alleged debts amounting to
$928, incurred in connection with
the building of a residence in the
southern part of the city. Two king's
counsels appeared for the five plaintiffs. Mrs. Keane displayed more
than ordinary ability as a questioner,
but it was evident that her knowledge
of court procedure is meagre. Oue
of the plaintiffs was subjected to a
gruelling cross examination. He appeared greatly relieved when Mr.
Justice Beck, who presided, advised
Mrs. Keane not to ask the witness
any more questions, but to avail herself of the oppor'unity of giving
testimony in her own behalf. The
woman accepted the judge's advice

Prince George will have a population of 15,000 in 1916. No doubt some will say we are
stretching it a point. We admit that we are very optimistic regarding the future of this
coming city, but we are sure if you will inspect the yards which the Grand Trunk are
installing at the foot of George Street in the vicinity of the Station, which are second to
none in Canada, you will be forced to admit that we have every right to be so. The
yards only go to prove what is expected of Prince George as a railway centre.
A $65,000 hotel to be built in Prince George by local business men, on which the excavating has already started, is only the beginning of the greatest building campaign ever
witnessed in this country.
Having purchased our property direct from the Grand Trunk, we are in a position to offer

Grand Trunk Pacific line across
British Columbia and the entire
route of the Pacific Great Eastern
ttB Well. Lands open for pre-emption are colored red on the maps,
so that intending settlers can tell at
a glance just what can be had, as
well as the lands that have been
alienated.
In the past pre-emptors have been
put to some trouble to find just what
lands could be taken up in any one
district. Instead of being forced to
make a tedious enquiry along this
line, the pre-emptor will now have
this task performed for him by the
government. The province will now
display its lands before the eye of
the settler and auk him to help himself. It is believed the assistance
thus given will be of very great benefit and will result in the settlement
ot much vacant land.
By early spring it is expected to
have three additional maps published, making in all, for the benefit of
the pre-emptor, covering those portions of country thoroughly along
the new railway lines, where settlement is expected to be heaviest.
In addition the lands department
is pushing ahead itB surveys as fast
an posible in order to aid settlers in
choosing locations and surveyed
areas are shown on the pre-emptor's
maps.
To accompany these maps for pre-
emptors, which the provincial lands
department is now beginning to issue, Hon. W. R. Ross, minister of
lands, has authorized the publication
ot a series of descriptive booklets
tellng of the features and possibilities of various provincial land districts ln the province. The first
booklet ot the aeries covers the Fort
Fraser division. Another dealing
with the Fort George district will
shortly make its apearance, while a
third will deal with the Skeena river
district,

EMBAUGO ()\ IMMIGRATION
Otawa, Dec, 12.—(Special)—Following close on the heels ot the recent heated diacussions on Hindu im
migration the Ottawa government
today passed order-in-council declaring an embargo on all immigr-tion
to British Columbia until the end of
March. The reason given out Is that
there is already a glut of labor and
no work for more Immigrants, but
the real object is to keep out the

This embargo, however, will not

not amount to over $600 and they
would furnish a very necessary addition to the present, tire-fighting apparatus. Another thing I would
like to suggest is the installation of

boxes would not be great and they
would prove to be of invaluable assistance to the firemen.

New York, Dec. 4.—In a 10-round
bout last night as Madison Square
Gardens, Jess Willard of Kansas defeated Carl Morris of Oklahoma.
Willard had the better of eight of
the ten rounds, one was fairly even,
and the other, the third, went to
Mossis. The bout was disappointing
as both men were slow and there
was a good deal of wrestling and
hugging with very few clean blows.
With the exception of the third
round Willard outboxed his opponent, and Morris was cautioned frequently for holding. Both were
clumsy, but Willard did the cleverer
work. Ho used a right cross and a
right uppercut, while Morris played
for the body at close quarters. Mor-
riB floundered at times and seemed
to have no judgment of distance.
The crowd frequently Jeered and
booed.
