LILLOOET,  B. C, APRIL, 20, 1917.
$2 PER YEAR
RAILWAY. EQUIPMENT
Active steps are being taken
by the Government to prepare
for next fall and winter transportation problems in order to
prevent a repetition of the car
congestion of last winter, at at
least so far as the public owned
roads are concerned.
An Order-in-council has been
passed authorizing the purchase
of 50 more locomotives, 25 for
the Intercolonial and 25 for the
N.T.R. They are of the Mikado
type for heavy freight work.
The successful tenderer was the
Canadian Locomotive W o r k s,
Kingston, at a cost) of $47,750
each. The next lowest tender
was $5,000 per locomotive more.
The company is to deliver ten
locomotives a month, beginning
October 1. Another order fqr
50 more locomotives of the same
type will be placed shortly.
Large orders for freight cars
are also being placed, although
they are difficult to obtain either
in Canada or the United States.
Canadian firms, at the present
time, are working on orders for
1,000 box cars, while 1,000 coal
cars have been purchased in the
United States. The coal cars
will be used to help solve the coalN
shortage problem. During the
fiscal year just closed there were
88 engines added to the Government railway equipment, this including 28 second-hand locomotives purchased from the N.T.R.
contractors, 50 heavy freight engines, and. ten bis* passenger
Moguls.
Reorganization of the methods
of tabulating Canadian agricultural census is being effected at
the present time. Heretofore
the Dominion Government made
an annual census, while each of
the provinces has its own system
of compilation. The methods of
gathering the figures differed
widely, and the results were often at variance. The outcome has
been confusing and has made
Canadian statistics of doubtful
veracity. This has frequently
resulted in confusion on the part
of foreign countries trading with
Canada, with consequences hardly beneficial to Canadian producers. Mr. R. H. Coats, the Dominion statistician, under the direction of Sir George Foster,
Minister of Trade and Commerce,
has been working for some time
on a plan by which the Dominion
and the Provinces will co-operate
and co-ordinate in the collection of
agricultural statistics. The Dominion will collect certain figures
and the province other figures,
and these will be exchanged. A
conference recently held in Ottawa with the statisticians of the
Quebec and Ontario Governments
reached an agreement subject to
the approval of their Governments. Mr. Coats will leave
shortly for the West to consult
with the Western provincial authorities in order to ensure their
agreement with the plan.
Ingles Uren, of Savona, has
been appointed to be a Justice of
the Peace in and around Dead-
man's creek.
The first inspection of Western
regiments at the capital by the
Duke of Devonshire took place at
Ottawa last Thursday. Among
regiments under review were the
231stst Seaforth Highlanders of
British Columbia anddrafts from
the Army Medical Corps.
BRAVA
By Arthur Martley, of Lillooet
We hail thee where thou comest,
mailed in measureless might.
We hail thee as a comrade.
and a true and noble knight.
Your banner waves with the "Allies',
for liberty and light.
You trod your vasty shores,
and viewed the battle from afar.
We hear thee gird thine armour now,
and thunder forth to war.
The Clangor of thine arming hear,
and the roll of thy battle roar.
The beat of your war drum falls,
ominous on the Hun.
Potents of pending doom,
from the land of the setttng sun. -
The poise of your potent spsar,
and the peal of .your powered gun.
GRATITUDE
Lillooet, April 17.1
In this hour of my deepest sor-]
j row, the kindness shown to me j
1 bv the many friends of my late'
j husband, has been like a ray of
| sunshine piercing the gloom.
To all those who assisted during his sickness, to all those who
since his death, have been ready
and willing to do so much to help;
to the many who expressed their
sympathy by following the body
to its last resting place. I wish
to express my gratitude.
Mary Eagleson.
PROVINCIAL AND GENERAL
King George is to institute a
new order, the Order of the
British Empire, available for women as well as for men, It will
be akin to the French Legion of
Honor.
Thomas Graham, chief inspector of mines since 1912 has resigned and taken a position with
one of the coal mining companies
on VancouverTsland, at a larger
salary. Before joining the department he was with the Western Fuel Company at Nanaimo.
Six hospital ships have been
torpedoed since the beginning of
the war, Thomas McNamara, financial secretary of the admiralty, stated in the House of Com-
mon.s„recejitly. In. consequence,^
he added, 267 lives have been
lost and 73 persons injured.
General Kouropatkin, who was
in command of the Russian front
in Courland, is alleged to have
received $8,000,000 from the Germans to deliver Riga to them,
took the money but didnot deliver the goods. The money was
sent to the Duma, which will find
good use for it.
A considerable number of foreign-born residents of Canada
who have gone to the United
States since the war commenced
are now anxious to return. The
Dominion immigration officials
are not disposed to let them back
and they are being held at the
border points.
Owing to the fact that the business was being run at a loss of
$2000 a month since the passing
into effect of the Ontario Temperance Act on September .last,
the Copeland Brewery Company
of Toronto has closed its doors.
The business, plant, and so forth,
were valued at $1,000,000.
Hon. Wm. Sloan has made reply to Mr. Walters of Yale on a
number of questions relating to
mining. During 1914 there were
1653 free assays made for prospectors at a cost to the Government of $1530. In 1915 there
were 1910 assays, costing $2413,
and in 1916 there were 2401 assays, costing $1890. Most of the
work is carried out by one assayer at a salary of $160 per month.
That the United States will be
largely, if not altogether, financed in the war with Germany
through the Federal reserve
banks, was indicated by the
monthly statement which declared that in order to meet financial
and banking problems growing
out of the present crisis. Congress will be immediately asked
to pass legislation granting the
federal reserve board additional
rights.
The death occurred on Sunday
evening at 11 o'clock p.m.„ of
Mr. Martin Hogan, rancher in
the Fountain Valley. After six
week's illness he succumbed to an
acute attack of Bronchitis. He
was reverently interred on his
janch by Mr. John McLaughlin.
Establish Weather Station
The Dominion Meteorlogical
Department have established a
weather station at Lillooet to
register the rain, snow, miscellaneous phenomena, and extremes of temperature. Maximum and minimum thermometers are now located at the
telegraph office where accurate
register can be obtained.
Death in Fountain Valley
Race to Red Rock
There is four money prizes.
A race to the red rock, behind
the town, is to take place on Sunday afternoon. Entry is free and
there is room for all. For full
particulars see Dr. Maker.
The British tax upon excess
profits has yielded £139,920,000
during the past year in comparison with an estimae of £86,000,-
000 and a revenue for the previous year of £140,000,000 from the
same source.
That many mothers and children, refugees from the district
near St. Quentin, evacuated by
the Germans, were deliberately
infected with tuberculosis by cultures injected in their arms, under the guise of vaccination, is
the statement of Captain Dr.
Cailleux, in charge of the hospital
Conde at Chantilly. Two hundred and thirty refugees are being sheltered at Chantilly. "A
microscopic examination of the
pus from the vaccination sores on
the limbs of a number of these
poor refugees disclosed the fact
that they were all inoculated
with tuberculosis cell life in the
form of German cultures by German army doctors," said Dr.
Cail^aux.
W. Leach left for Bridge river
last week.
Many Lillooet citizens are responding to the National Call for
Greater Production, by digging
up their gardens and planting
vegetable matter therein-
A bill has been passed in the
United States permitting the En-
tgnte nations to recruit therein.
Now is the time to get busy
and Swat that fly.
LOCAL AND GENERAL
A dance will take place in the
Santini Hall this evening.

Chas. Keary and Tommy Hurley, left on Sunday morning for
the Bridge River district. Charley is going to butcher for the
miners, and Tommy, we understand, is taking up a position at
the Lorne mine.
The P.G.E. enquiry seems at
present as if it will scorch a number of birds that were the least
suspected. A number of wings
have already begun to flutter.
It looks like "three of a kind
beats two pair."
Mrs. McCartney, of Vancouver, and Miss Cotter, also of Vancouver; arrived in town this w«ek,
they are visiting friends and incidentally taking photographs of
some of Lillooet's natural beauty
spots. They are very favorably
impressed by our healthful climate.
Owing to the low water in the
Thompson river near Lytton the
Indians have been able to pick
up fairly large quantiites of
coarse gold by panning the sand
bars. The average has been a-
bout $1.25 to the pan and the result of four or five days work
has been about $100.

A. E. LUDWIG, Manager.
APRIL  20,   1917.
MIDDLEMAN'S PROFITS
The man who cultivates
the soil, works hard at it,
and ultimately after much
anxiety and sweat of brow
grows a crop and gets it
ready for market, is naturally irritated if he finds it
difficult to get a price for it
that will repay him for his
trouble. He is more irritated if the man who buys his
crop and sells it to the retailer gets as much out of
the transaction as he does
himself. Perhaps this middleman, as he is called, gets
more than the grower does.
All the latter has to do is to
take the crop and pass it over to his customers. The
crop reaches his railway siding in town in a good state.
He gets it into his warehouse, he fixes his price, and
the vegetable poducts or
field output are speedily sur-
sounded by an eager crowd
of buyers. The grower
thinks : " Why should the
middleman, whose work is
comparatively straightforward and easy—a mere matter of routine—get nearly as
much as I do out of it who
have borne the burden and
heat of the day? I have had
to toil from dawn to dark
while he has been driving
about the city in an automobile and going to picture-
shows. I nave had the anxiety of uncertain weather and
perhaps bad seasons^ which
disabilities he does not have
to think about."
Now it may be said at
once that in the main the answer to this question—broadly speaking—is that the middleman gets his profit because the farmer or grower
allows him to do so. If the
farmer had a depot in the
city he could send his crops
there and sell direct to the
consumer, thus getting the
middleman's profit for himself. And although that may
be an impossible thing for
any single grower to do, it
could be done and has been
done by the co-operation of
a number of growers. Again,
the government might step
in—at any rate during war
time—and determine the a-
mount of profit that the middleman might g§t. It might
stop him abusing the privilege of cold storage in order
to keep prices up. Such government action might be condemned as having a Socialistic tendency, but it would be
in harmony with the modern
trend of things which is to
subordinate the special advantage of the few for the
advantage of the many.
In any just and fair examination of the subject the
share of work the middleman
has to do must be taken account of. He has to work
up a connection, and he has
to pay his clerks and staff
who handle the crops as they
come in. Living in the city
he has rent and taxes to pay,
the amount of which might
astonish the grower. He is
not without anxieties. But
all the same he sometimes
gets more than his share of
the returns. If the farmers
think this is getting to be
too much the case, why let
them co-operate and eliminate the middleman altogether.
