This despatch deals 'with the alleged experience of one James Anderson, who the nrlicle states, vis- ited certain holdings of his ill Ihe Up- per frnaer Valley, B. C., and returned home much'dissatisfied. Tills company has no acquaintance with Mr.'Anderson', and whatever pro he may hold in the Upper Fraser country was hot' acquired from us. Further, his views- on the district re- ferred to have no interest for ue, but we wish to dniw your attention to a number of inisstHlements made by him, and published by you. have in tho past given you a considerable volume of advertising business, al- ways presenting what ws believed and still believe to be the facts In con- nection" with the Central Interior of British Columbia. We have no string on your payer, and we do not.-wish to exercise any influence upon you. but since you have.accepted our business we think "it our duly to call your at- tention to the errors'publlshed by you with regard to a district in which we are interested.' We, are sure that-a ittle investigation of the Mots would have deterred you from printing that despatch of June 13. Let me point out to you a few cf he outstanding fallacies of this An- ierson stuff. To begin with, the entire story Is. on the face of it. one man's pre) uli.-ed opinion.' Apparently he had n-.iiinn- ierstood air that has been pub'hi'ied about the Central Interior country On- iren He went up to the north country in April, and was .horrified-to. find ice- n the river'and'snow pn-the -groui.d. W that s'ame season there n larlous other paits of fana'da, this Anderson probably Knows more about. He had diffioulty.in getting up'.Hse Fraser river byt steamboat; So'lias everybody who forgets thatv naviga- tion on the upper Fraser never'opens before .May 1. j The land, according to Anderson, is 'entirely .unfit rpurposes, being covered with dense have never British''" Columbia: land adierhsed as piairie land i province is morq or less wooded UiiottgnouU British.

These statements are utterly absurd. There are many people raising potatoes and other, .veg- etables in Central British Columbia tonaj, and If theie are places in Can- adapte'd lor the do not know of them. The. country, is so new, that in many 'branch'sB. of ag- riculture u has not jet been1 tested, but in the. departments mentioned oj this gentfeman it has proved its worth. The statement that it'is impossible for a white man. to live.in comfort in Central British Columbia: on account of the severe winters is something of a libel on the large number of white men who have'already passed winter seasons in the district. We "have found in 'our experience hat there is a certain type of. man iho is utterly unfitted for the rugged s ork of pioneering in m1 new country He liae not the nerve to face discomforts and hardships, with ,tho Here is tliC'pppprtiinity for a workingman to gel, a fine building sitein ilie heart, of the prosperous North VVartl. fi-i'o oTferirig for a sho'rl; time only 25x125 It. lots on Sixth .A-ve'iuie North, each) Ir3 cash, balance on 'easy terms.
