We Are Open-Day and Night Auto Livery in Connection Prompt Attention to Repairing GEORGE Local Man Report on the Conditions as he Found Them There About two months or more ago j there left this Southern Alberta city, T. A. Millard and A. Lyons, bound for an extended trip through, central B. C., and the Fort George district. A short time ago Mr. Millard re- turned to the city, Mr. Lyons having stopped off at Edmonton. When interviewed by the Herald re- garding his trip Mr. Millard told an interesting story somewhat as fol- lows "Arriving by rail at Asncroft, we disembarked, to pursue our course northward. The trip, via .the old Caribou trail, a distance oi 167 miles, we made in an- auto in an in- terval of 10 hours, actual running. In all, thirteen autos, owned by dif- ferent companies, ply from Ashcroft to Soda Creek and-are kept busy carrying passengers to and fro. The scenery along this trail is exceedingly rugged and making the trip a decidedly enjoyable one. At Soda Creek we boarded the B.X. steamer and were thus conveyed up the broad expanses of the Fraser to Fort George. The accommodation af- forded us along the route was re- markable, and never once during the whole trip could it be said we experi- enced anything like hardship. Our stay in Fort George was lim- ited to two weeks' time. But during that period we saw and experienced a great deal. Fort George will, un- doubtedly, become a good town in time. It has every facility for mak- ing it so, but just at present my candid opinion is that it is being pressed forward a little too fast, and is somewhat in advance of. existing conditions. Population Not Large The present population" of the town is about 300, and the majority of these is still under canvas. Two banks, the Traders, and the Bank of British North America, have been es- tablished and conduct their banking business in tents." There is a small saw mill in continual operation, which, though it turns out from eight to ten thousand feet of lumber every day, cannot nearly supply the local demand. As a result of months of negotia- tion, the G. T. P. has bought .iCOO acres of land from a large Indian re- serve ,that butts on the present tmvn- site. The price was thought to be per acre. This tract is likely, in fact, almost sure to fonri the site on which part of the future town of Fort George will be built. It is the general concensus of opinion of the Fort George inhabitants that the G.T.P. will not reach Fort George for at least three years." This, how- ever, ought to prove no serious detri- ment to 'the development of the town and surrounding especially one considers the present facil- tf travel to and from the tow-n." Ideal Climate in Summer During the summer months the cli- re- nave learned from inhabitants that the snowfall is greater ;thaii here is. Southern and the climate during those months does not com- pare jjuite so favorably with that of Sunny Southern Alberta for the cor- responding period.. The country about Fort George for the most part, is thickly wooded with poplar and jack-pine. This can be bought and cleared up at a cost of about or per acre. Large tracts of it have, however, been cleaned off by forest fires and left in such a state, that it can be-placed in workable shape at small cost and comparative ease. I understand that Waddington Co., of this city, have sold and are still selling tracts of this land, and I do not think they are at- all misrepresenting the condi- tions if they comply with what I have already said. Produce in Fort George district brings the producer excellent returns. The influx of population is creating a demand for vegetables and- other ne- cessaries, and fortunate, indeed, is he who has any to dispose of. For in- stance, hay is selling at per ton, and potatoes at 6 cents per pound. Potatoes grow to be an enormous size and I believe two of them, if not less, would weigh a pound. There is certainly a. good living to be made at market gardening. I have seen rhubarb that measured six feet in length from end to end of the stock Especially fertile are the valleys of the Nechacco and Fraser rivers. Coal Found North of Fort George there have been found coal deposits, that are thought to be of considerable value. North and also east of the town there is a good placer mining district and on several occasions I saw parties of prospectors leaving to make their strike. On my return from Fort George I spent a month at Vancouver, before once again coming to Lethbridgo. In conclusion I would like to state, that Page 3 though Fort George must inevitably in time assume the proportions of a thriving town in a prosperous dis- trict, yet I have come back more as- sured than ever that Southern berta is the place for me. Al- NEW YORK WOMEN WONDER OF DUKE "Without Escorts They Walk To and Fro In Safety OB Streets" New York, Aug. has nothing on New York for gaiety, pleasure, cooking or theatres."

Faces Blase ;With are some interesting compari- the duke makes between Paris have no one street sons and New York "Your lights are one of the most interesting and beautiful features of your night he exclaimed. "As whole, your streets are much better lighted than ours and we Broadway. There is not which contains so much. Even in the shop windows we do not use as many lights as you, and as for the electric signs, the theatres and top of buildings, have ever been held their equal. Fizzing Bottles Marvelous "The horses that gallop, the baby lephant that sits on its tail, the lady with the flowing skirt, the fizzing bottles and steaming coffee but they are marvelous. I think he is a great artist who de- igns have none so clever in 'aris. j waste light as gloriously as j vou waste everything else." "Have you been in Chinatown at night "Only the other he replied. "I saw it alii; the opium dens and all the rest. It was interesting, for we have no Chinese colony 'in Paris. But, really, it did not seem to me wicked as you would say. I under- stand that the police cleared it out a while he continued, a bit re- gretfully. Respectable Women on Street "What sort pi people do you. meet in your wanderings "All sorts. Positively, any one whom I might see in the he answered readily. "What impressed nrie most was the number of respectable women one sees on the streets alone after dark. in Public us it is different. The faces of women and men in our public plac- es arc often so triste, so blase. "Your theaters are most remark- able. The scenery is more beautiful and the acting is better than I find in Paris. "As for the cafes, I can assure you that in the best of them the cooking is twice as good as I find at home. It's so rare in Paris to see a man drunk." The duke recently saw a New York gang fight in which a man was shot to death. This nearly brought on a compari- son between the notorious Apaches of Paris and the New York gang.
