ULLOOET PROSPECTOR
VOL. /(, NO.  52
LILLOOET,  B. C,  FRIDAY,  OCTOBER 27, 1916.
$2 PER YEAR
"Our Day", Oct. 19
In accordance with the request
forwarded to His Honour F. S.
Barnard, Lieutenant Governor of
B. C. from Lord Lansdowne,
Presioent of the British Red
Cross Society, advising that with
the approval of their Majesties
the King and Queen and Her
Majesty Queen Alexandra, that
an appeal was being made thru-
out the Empire for contributions
for the great work of the British
Red Cross Society, on "Our Day"
Thursday the 19th of October,
the citizens and residents of Lil
looet and vicinity most heartily
responded to add their share.
The arrangements for the day
were taken over by a Ladies'
committee and were, as is usual,
eminently successful.
Mr. Santini's kind offer of the
use of his commodious hall was
taken full advantage of, stalls
being erected for the day's proceedings.
At about 2 p.m. the bazaar was
opened by a brief address from
Mr. W. Adams, and from that on
business continued very brisk till
all things disappeared.
The stalls, each of which had
been tastefully decorated for the
occasion, were in charge of and
attended by the following ladies:
Fancy work stall —Mrs. Asselstine and Mrs. Miller.
Joy Wheel, toys and amusements, etc.—Mrs. Christie, Mrs.
Elliott and Miss Martin.
Tea and Refreshments—Mesdames Smith, Bell, Hurley, Taylor, Saul, Misses Martin and Rand
Ice Cream—Mesdames Eagan
and Bell.
Fruit-Mrs. Foster.
Candies—Misses Moscrop and
Goode.
A dance was also held, a considerable number being present.
The music being supplied by Miss
Carson who played several pianoforte selections, and Mr. Pizzi,
also by gramophone let for the
occasion by Constable Bourne.
The two M.C.'s, Messrs Keary
and Miller, keeping the dancers
very busy, .and a very enjoyable
time was spent, also the goodly
sum of $268.20 was placed to the
credit of the Red Cross.
The school children during the
opening ceremony of the bazaar
sang patriotic airs.
FOUND — A  pair of spurs.
Apply at the Prospector Office.
The suggestion that Great
Britain adopt a decimal system of
coinage after the war is to the
fore in some quarters just now,
There wil it is certain, have to be
much agitation before the thing
is even seriously considered in
influential circles. Pounds shillings and pence are not as simple
as dollars and cents. People will
hardly favor a change.
Three dudes were walking a-
long the street one morning and
met an aged, decrepit minister,
with long white hair and beard.
Desiring to poke fun at the old
man, the first called out, "Hello,
Father Abram." The second
said, "Hello. Father Isaac," and
the third chimed in, "Hello Father Jacob." The minister, seeing
the situation, and likewise using
scripture, quietly replied. ' 'I am
neither Abram, nor Isaac, nor
Jacob, but Saul, the son of Kish,
who went forth to find his father's asses; and behold I have
found them."

The Weekly Newspaper
One of Lillooet's local pastimes.
The weekly newspaper produces the interest in the town in
which it is published to such an
extent that it becomes impossible
to place an estimate upon its
worth. There is no enterprise
that does so much for the corporation or the individual citizen as
the paper. It stands opposed to
the town knocker, the town kicker, the town fanatic and town
drones. It stands for progress
against stagnation. It is ever-
ready to conduct the schemes of
visionaries and as ready to aid
the construction plans of wise and
level headed citizens. It is for
the upbuilding of the community.

Would Admit Students.
J. W. Ross, Canadian trade
commissioner at Shanghai, calls
attention in a report to the trade

students are sailing for the United
States to enter American universities. He says that many of
these wouldcome to Canada if the
regulations were relaxed. At
present Chinese students are
treated as Chinese coolies and
the same regulations are enforced
against them.
Provided the legislation will
not prove, controversal and will
not be opposed by British Columbia members it will likely be introduced this coming session of
Parliament.

orchards in and around Lillooet
this week.
The man put his hand in the

GERMAN AGGRESSION
We are beginning to find
out that if a stop to Germany's ambitions had not
been put by the war, that
aggressive nation would soon
have had the world at her
feet in the way of trade. A
recent visitor to the coast, ii
member of the party of parliamentary delegates from
the various Dominions who
visited the Old Country a
few months ago in order to
see for themselves what was
being done, said that among
other prominent men with
whom he had conversed was
the managing director of a
manufacturing concern in
England now occupied in
munition making and employing 15,000 operatives.
This gentleman told the visitor that previous to the war,
the leading managers, foremen, chemists, engineers,
etc., the pivotal men on
whom the success of the concern depended, who had
worked their way into positions of trust and prominence.
This is only one instance of
what has been occurring all
over the world. Germany
previous to the war, realized
clearly that her great industrial and commercial success
had been due to the subordination of the individual,
and to the extension of the
idea of organization and combination. She saw her, way,
as she thought, to the possibilities of larger and larger
combinations of capital and
of nations— all of course under German control.
The plan of campaign on
which Germany was working, was neither worse nor
better than the reprehensible
and cruel methods employed
by some of the earlier trusts
on this continent to control
markets and to crush competition. The develish cleverness with which the scheme
was worked is exhibited in
an Italian instance. The
Banca Commerciale in Milan
was begun by Germans in
1895 with the comparatively
small capital of a million dollars. It became the headquarters of the German commercial army. By the year
1915, the capital of this concern had increased to $31,-
209,000, of .which Germany
and Austria heldbut two and
a half per cent, while controlling all its operations and
of the trades and industries
linked with it. Germany's
plan was to make the nations
she enslaved, pay for their
enslavement.      '
THE ISLAND OF WONDERLAND

asserts that the Alberta capital has the largest butter
factory in Canada, the out-

EVERY year a larger and ever Increasing number of autoists, and
those who wish to spend their
vacations ln an entire change of environment, make their way to the
Island of Vancouver—the gateway of
which is Victoria, the capital city of
British Columbia—the best known
tourist resort in the Pacific Northwest. It Is entirely different from
any other territory known to automo-
bilists. True, it is in Canada, and
reached by the Canadian Pacific via
road and magnificently appointed
steamers, but it is as British as if it
were one of the British Isles. This
is realized immediately one lands
from the steamer in Victoria, and by
the way this very landing is interesting and affords an excellent exam
pie of the courtesy of Canadian customs officials, and the extreme ease
with its automobilists. who are residents of the United States, can en-
ttr into this, to them, foreign country. C
But to return to one's first impressions upon leaving the steamer at
Victoria. As the steamer glides to
her berth through the unique Inner
Harbor, considered one of the most
picturesque in the world, there immediately looms up on the right, the magnificent Parliament buildings of British Columbia—one of the architectural features of Canada. They are sit-
ui'ed overlooking the harbor, facing
James Bay embankment and the City
ot  Victoria,    f
The six-horse tally-hos and the thirty-passenger and smaller sight-seeing
cars lined up on the side streets, all
ccirpeting for business in a vlgOrdui,
and somewhat unfamiliar manner, is
a other indication that we have with-
ir a short space of live hours, been
tr; n-planted in: - a new and invigorat-
l..r en\>nhT>ent. The City of Victoria
'< 'he starting point of the Island
>   .away, which brings the autoniobil-
1st in close touch with the main portion of Vancouver Island, and all its
summer and fishing resorts; its quaint
villages, enterprising towns, agricul
tural settlements, wonderful forests,
reached by tributary highways, and,
the commencement of the Canadian
highway, the terminus of which is at
Alberni.
It is an ea-y matter to spend a
week ln the City of Victoria, and to
take an entirely separate and distinct, and at the same time most interesting tour, every day. In fact,
during tin past summer, enthusiastic
autoists from California, Utah, Washington. Oregon, and 'even Eastern
Canada spent from two to five weeks
in this city and island, and left with
the greatest possible regret.     -    -•*
Mi*: Pre terick Wagner, In the Seattle Times, thus describes his first
visit to Victoria and the Island:    ' ~
"Picturesque and rugged in its
matchless beauty of unlimited variety; wealthy fn magnificent driveways
and offering unsurpassed hotel accommodations, with lavish hospitality
ever conspicuously present— that is
Vancouver Island, In the Canadian
province of British Columbia, paradise
of motorists and nature lovers., and
destined to rank as one of the world's
greatest touring fields.
"Nature painted the gsrgeous set-
put of which last year was
2,525,021 pounds as compared with 74,000 pounds in
1909, the year of its beginning. The produce, of this
manufactory, it is pointed
out, was awarded seventeen
prizes and one championship
at fairs extending from Quebec on the East to Vancouver
on the West.
It is highly satisfactory to
find a western Canadian city
branching out. in this way
and the more of this go-ahead
spirit is introduced the better. But it may be remarked
that this result would not
have been attained had there
not been men to see the
chances and to lead the way.
The success of any settlement, be it township, village
or city depends on its men.
One industry in any locality
which is conducted with vigor, and which makes the best
of its opportunities is worth
a whole lot of talk. It is the
"get up and get" spirit that
makes for success, and Ed
monton had the advantage
of having among its early
settlers, men of grit bred in
the old Hudson's bay traditions, vvho were pioneers in
the best sense of the word.
Some settjements in Canada
are at a standstill and some
are getting along well. It depends on the .quality .of its
men. If there are leaders
there will be success.
ting for this scenic wonderland, and
the people of Vancouver Island have
capitalized it by constructing a system of splendid highways that is dotted with attractive hotels where excellent accommodations are to be obtained. And they have supplemented
this work by a display of genuine hospitality that is justly entitled to be
classed as a valuable asset in the exploitation of their country,
"The chain of mountains that penetrates Vancouver Island and the beautiful valleys, with their numerous
streams, lakes and luxuriant vegetation, combine to set before the eyes of
the traveller a variety of scenic splendor that beggars description.
"Go where you will on Vancouver
Island and yon will find scenery that
causes you to marvel at the lavish-
hessbf nature;- Jws* ** f'\ '
' "Tbe coastline of the Island is very
beautiful,1 being indented with deep
bays and fiords. The western c6ast
differs somewhat from the eastern
coastline, for on the ocean side' a
number of canals reach far inland,
as if to aid the miner and the lumberman to get his product to market
with ease; while on the other side of
the island there are. many.. pleasant
bays and several beaches, where summer homes and resorts are; to ba
found."

THE  LILLOOET  PROSPECTOR
The Casualty Lists
Every day brings its fresh
message of grief to some
heart as the Canadian casualty lists disclose the names
of those from among us who
have completed their sacrifice of devotion by rendering
up their lives in support of
the principles which impelled
them to enlist in the service
of their country. It was announced the other day that
the casualties from the Dominion since the outbreak of
war has reached a total of
over 52,000. This is about
one in seven of those who
have enlisted. This serves
to show how terribly hard
has been the wokr of our
soldiers on the fighting line
and brings home with fresh
meaning the splendid conduct
of our Canadian troops on
the Yyes salient, and more
recently, on the line of advance along the Somme front
And yet we must steel our
hearts in preparation for
even greater sacrifices as the
days go by, and more and
more of our boys find their
way to the battle fields where
their comrades have won e-
ternal distinction and fame.
It must by this time be pretty well realized by all who
are trying to understand conditions on the various fronts,
that the task of the Allies is
far from nearing an end.
Our foe is still strong, aggressive and apparently confident. Many weary months
must lie before us until victory crowns our banners.
There will be need of men to
the last soldier that the Empire can put in the field and
from now on the heaviest
fighting will fall upon the
British forces.
Our losses, dreadful as they
are in themselves, are in relation to the whole population light in comparison with
what other behgerent nations have suffered. Our
casualties are to date less
than seven per thousand of
our total population. The
German casualties, as admitted by themselves, are proportionately more than ten
times this; and the French
losses cannot be much less.
The British losses, excluding
the Dominion casualties must
now be past the million mark,
which would make them a-
bout four times those of Canada. When one looks around
and notes the havoc that is
being made in our Canadian
towns by the losses sustained
by our troops, some idea can
be gained of what this war
must mean to a German city
of corresponding size. Hardly a German family, one may
imagine,, but does not mourn
its dead, and while we may
never feel the full weight of

The Weekly Newspaper
from page 1
The paper has not yet come
to its own, however, because
it is never appreciated to the
extent of its worth by the
people at large. Yet when
battles are to be fought for
town or country a rush is
made to the newspaper office
always to find the loyal editor ready, frequently without
hope of reward. Many other
enterprises are encouraged
by a bonus, but rarely is a
newspaper offered such help
and still more often not given the support it is entitled
to. Communities frequently
lose sight of their benefactor
when they fail to recognize
the weekly journal as such.
The editor and his paper
stands as bulwarks of defense
against the attacks of evil or
designing schemes affecting
the good of the individual or
town. For these and other
the newspaper, town and
country, should receive the
support of the public at large
in a very liberal degree, for
it is really the most important business enterprise of the
community. — Chicago Tribune.
