(Calgary Herald) The old timers are beginning to come tho Sta.mpede. Fred Kanouse, formerly of Fort iMaclcod, Fort Warren, etc., one of the first traders to come Into Hudson Hay ter- ritory, arrived In Calgary yesterday afternoon from hig home neur Port- laud, Oregon. .Mr. Kanouse has agreed of' Trade, issued a superintendent the construction of the reproduction of the old fort, stockade and trading post at Whoop- up for tho Stampede management.

A trader in those days would outfit with flour, blankets and goods, and would then put In a stock of liciupr. He worked the same as the Hudson Bay traders, for we were com peting with them and we could not busjness hnd ailroad control of steamship lines. The first, by Senator Heed, would prohibit ships owned by an. illwal in- dustrial combination irom using the canal: and the second by Sen. Bourne lines. None ot Us Vfere simply whis- key runners. We came to trade and in order 'to compete 'with the Hudson Bay company we had to have whis- key.

I never knew of any band of. Indian bucks coming to a trader for whiskej alone. There was no law in the countn then, not until the coming of the Mounted ing free toll to American hips Their coming was due to an untrue article which appeared m tlie Sacramento Union, of Sacramento In 1870. It stated that tncre was In Can- ada, just across the line from Mon- tana, a fort called Whoopup where 250 to 500 American desperadoes and pe the loreign trade Both of these mo- tions defeated b) ONcrwhelming lote the bill pa ed it would rmit Vmcrrcan coa e to through the c nal free without condition? while Vmencan foreign trade hips might pa through free if their owner acrccd to ell the.

Senator Brandegcc closing the de- bate insisted that the provisions ot the Senate bill admitting American vessels engaged in the foreign tolde, to free passage in the canal, was an undoubted violation of the Ilay- P.iuncciorte treaty with Great Bri- tain. He opposed also the Williams amendment admitting American own- ed foreign built, vessels to American registration, provided they did not in coastwise trade. It has been proposed that this would help, build up 'the American merchant 'he said. "To my mind it would be a humiliating spec- tacle for 'Americans to see ships tra- velling around the world under the American flag with the label 'built In OfCrmanv.' attached to them."

Mr. Kanouse received his first busi- ness education at the trading post o[ the American Fur company .in Fort Benton, established In John iacob Astor. In 1369 Mr. Kanouse and Jos. Klpp were clerks In the store of Cap roll Stcele at. Fort Uflnton. He will build the reproduction ot Fort Hamilton "Whoopup" for the Stampede. The old original alarm bell which was hung over the old fort will be used and a store exactly as the store iu he con- structed. Here old traders will .be seen doing business with old Indians, whom they traded with neaily a haK century ago. A visit to the old fort will he like a step back to tho flist days of white men in this countrs.
