Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 17, 1910, Lethbridge, Alberta The Lethbrldge Daily Herald. Tuesday, May In Vwtctuvw "WorM" of April 29 the following: mTGEHCEB BHilEUnOLY People Crowding into New Country Is v, T ber' and Mineral Wealth and Agri- cultural News Paper Plant Being Installed. Edited by Phont 1052 SOCIAL AND PERSONAL j Mis. P. L. Naismitli returned this! morniug from ihe east. There is no part of ihe prov- ince on which keener eyes are set than ou Fort George. Already, despite the advice to wait till railway construction has iieared the prospective city, peo- ple are crowding into Fort George country.. so as to ensure being the first on the ground. Many of the people going there, however, have capital and In- tend building hotels, stores, of- fices, industrial establishrnems, etc., to be ready for the develop- ment that, will certainly result from the transportation facilities shortly to be provided by the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway. A healthy indication is the fact that so many people are going in there to take up laud, and are well equipped with agricul- tural implements and live stock with which io enter ou their work of pioneering. The vast area of agricultural, pastoral and hay lands, with the rapidly growing markets adjacent for agricultural produce, beef aud mutton, the adaptability of much of the country for fruit growing with a permanent market on the prairie, within few day's run of Fort George, aud the favor- able climate all impress the homeseekef with the advantag- es of the new north land. Timber Wealth The -timber wealth of some of tlie adjacent valleys has already attracted the attention of the lumberman. Blocks of timber have been acquired by lumber companies who intend building mills and operating there. Other big lumber interests have cruis- ers. investigating timber limits on the market. The numerous streams, lakes and rivers ensure the economical handling of logs between :he woods and mills and the crowding prairie will offer an immediate market for all the lumber that can be shipped as soon as the railway is ready to carry it. Fort George is the centre of a rich mineral section. Develop- ment work so far has proved that this portion of northern British Columbia has fully as much mineral v.-eakh as the south. Already a silver lead mine in the Babine country to the north- west of Fort George has been developed to an extent to war- rant its being placed alongside the famous Eugene mine by the Consolidated Min- ing Smelting Company, in Zast Kcotenay. The Black- water Co.mtry io south has long been fuiaed foi its. gold hearing deposits and the reports of the late Sir G. M. Dawson, head of the Geological Survey of Canada, indicated this as the most promising gold min- ing section of the Pacific prov- ince. Near Placer Fields To the east is the famous Cari- boo country, which, in its day. rivalled the Klondyke as a rich placer field, while the existence of numerous ore bodies there has been known for years and only needed transportation 'to ensure their development and exploita- tion. To the north and east are the famous Tacla and Omenica sec- tions, with their wealth of plac- er gold, hitherto barred from modern economic methods of ex- ploitation by the want of trans- portation. Here, too, lode miner- als are found in abundance. On the western slopes of the Rocky mountains are the finest mica deposits the world knows. The mineral resources of the coun- rry around Fort George may therefore be expected before many years are over to practical- ly double the mineral production of British Columbia, in gold, sil- ver, copper, lead, mica and the other metals forming as yet only a small fraction of the mineral output, but which are certain to be utilized in time. Coal is found in abundance in til? vicinity and already the fields" are DeinS developed, so a good idpal supply of fuel will shortly be available for railways. steamboats, industrial establish- ments and the home supply of the people; while gas works and ovens will spring up, follow- ed by smelters to hand'e the min- eral of the country. What the Kootenay Power Company has done for the min- ing industries of British Colum- bia, and what the British Colum- bia Railway Company has done in the way of power supply for the Pacific coast, a Fort George company fs about to do for that country, having secured magnifi- cent power rights on Willow River, from which wires will be strung -to Fort George and all adjacent points, requiring an ap- preciable supply of power for light ing and industrial purposes. As the establishment of a second newspaper has already been mentioned in these advertisements, the World's reference to it has been omitted. The new paper will be called the Fort George Mail. A complete printing plant is going to Fort George, the size of which may be estimated by the freight charge of for taking it up.
