Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 28, 1910, Lethbridge, Alberta Command of the Waterways is the Key of the Situation r, See Also Regular Sport Page On Section 2 A hundred years ago the Hudson's Hay Company selected Fort George as the strategic point for their trade with lh-' interior of-this aei's Umpire. The same reasons which in- fluenced their decision are today oper- ating to make second; if not the first, city of British Columbia. George is located at the' geo- graphical centre of British It is the hub, where the great river systems radiate. 'The water systems are the only railway routes, for British Columbia is a land of mountains, pla- teau and river valley, and the railways must follow the rivers to have feasible grades. The Fort George Tribune of April 2nd discussed the situation as follows: 'Unequalled -System, of C'eiitTe at Fort A new country to be attractive to .settlers must have qualifications laud suitable for agricultural pur- poses and 'transportation facilities, Moth these facilities are to be fou nc' here, it is out of the question tc transport farm produce long distance: by wagon, even were not the making o.' wagon roads expensive. But when a country is' provided wiih natural trans- portation routes, the improvement of which would be inexpensive, that country has an and it is the advauiag'e Central British' Colum- bia. has, with its millions of acres of farming :lands. Xo interior part of the Pacific Coast is so advantageously sir.uiited. Central British Columbia has more miles of navigable waterways than Washington, Oregon, and Cali- fornia. The Columbia and -Willamette gave the farmers of 'the Willamette valley a means of landing their duce at markets that were profitable. In California the Sacramento and San Joatiuin rivers were 'the only means the pioneers of that state had for trans- porting goods to the mining camps in the interior of the state. Yet the total mileage of all these rivers, that played so important' a part in tha settlement of the great states, is not as great as the navigable mileage of rivers and lakes that find their centre at Fort George. Take the Fraser. for instance. a river with less volume than the Co lumbia, but greater in length. Empty- ing into the Gulf of Georgia, a short distance be.low New Westminster, it is navigable for steamboats to Yale, p distance of TOO miles. From Yale north to LUlooet it is not navigable because of rapids. But from Lillooet to Tete .l.tiane Cache, a distance of over GOO miles, it. is no more difficult of naviga- tion than were the Columbia and thc- Snake from Portland, Oregon, to Lew- iston. Idaho, for nearly 30 years. There be short portages, over which freight could be hauled by rail, or by wagon but from Soda Creek. 165 miles south, of Fort George, to Goat Rivev Rapids, 204 miles east of Fort George. a steamboat was run this fall without difficulty, and Captain Bonser claimed he could have gone through to Tete .Inane Cache which is 111 miles east of Goat River Rapids, had he started a week earlier. Mis boat (the Nechaco) was drawing over 20 inches. This year Captain Bonser will demonstrate the feasibility of navigating this stretch. The Xechaco and Stuart rivers may be taken together, as the latter joins rhe former at a point 57 miles west of Fort George. There are rapids in hot! rivers, but both have. been navigatet: this year by the N'echaco and in former years by a steamboat built when Om enica district was attracting attention and is- today beached on Stuart lake From a point 17 miles above ..where i joins the Nochaco, Stuart river for 70 miles is a fine steamboat stream; i is deep, has little current, and then are no obstructions.
