 LILLOOET PROSPECTOR
VOL.fi NO. 41
LILLOOET,  B. C, FRIDAY, AUGUST 11, 1916.
$2 PER YEAR
COMMEMORATION DAY LOYALLY    I
OBSERVED BY LILLOOET CITIZENS
Addresses  by Capt. Robinson and  Well-known Local
Men—Large Amount of Money Raised
For Red  Cross. Fund
The citizens of Lillooet fittingly observed the second anniversary of the beginning of the war
on Friday last and large crowds
were in attendance both in the
afternoon and at the Commemoration meeting in the evening.
The ladies of the town were
well organized for the occasion,
and ice cream and refreshment
booths, fancy work and fruit and
vegetable stalls, and last, but not
least, the different raffles, joy
wheel, etc., were eagerly patronized by nearly all present, and
the Red Cross Fund benefited to
the extent of over $500. A number of the young girls aiso sold
Red Cross tags and a large
amount of money was raised in
this way.
Last year's gathering on the
occasion of tlie first anniversary
was considered to be a big success financially and otherwise,
but although money is supposed
to be scarcer, the receipts from
this year's event are considerably
over double that of a year ago.
The Commemoration meeting
and concert in the evening was
very largely attended, and the
stirring speeches by the different
gentlemen on the programme
were listened to with marked attention and cheered to the echo.
The proceedings were opened
by the singing of "0 Canada" by
the audience. Dr. Sibree Clarke
presided and before introducing
the speakers of the evening
touched briefly on what the citizens of Lillooet and district had
done in bearing their share in the
war.
Capt. J. T. Robinson, of Kamloops, who had kindly consented
to come to Lillooet and deliver an
address on 'The War," was
greeted with applause when he
rose to speak. He congratulated
the peoplb of Lillooet on the
manner in which ihey had contributed to the different war
funds and hoped they would still
continue to do their share in
helping in the good work. He
traced the events of the war
from its commencement, showing
how Germany had violated her
every pledge to the Allies. Capt.
Robinson's forceful and inspiring
address was enjoyed by all
present.
Mr. C. Phair, in a brief speech,
moved the following resolution,
which was seconded by Mr. W.
Adams, a man who has probably
done more than any other person
in Lillooet in the way of giving to
and collecting for the different
war funds:
"That on this, the second anniversary of the declaration of a
righteous war, this meeting of
the citizens of Lillooet and District records its inflexible determination to continue to a victorious end the struggle in maintenance of those ideals of liberty
and justice which are the common
and sacred cause of the Allies."
The resolution was passed unanimously.
Mr. J. S. Bell in supporting
the resolution, made one of the
bet»t speeches of the evening.
During the meeting a fine
musical programme was rendered by Mrs. Palmer. Miss Jessie
Brown, Corp. McMinn and Mr.
W. Oddy. all of Kamloops, who
were good enough to come with
JSapt. Robisnon and help to make
the entertainment a success.
Their kindness was greatly appreciated. Miss Ellen Bridge and
Mr. Martley also contributed a
solo and a recitation.
The dince which  commenced
about 10 o'clock was well patronized and thoroughly enjoyed by
all.   Mr. Tom Baillie, of Lytton,
(Contin-led on Page 4.)
GOLD COMMISSIONER'S REPORT
The following office statistics
are taken from the report of Mr.
C. Phair, gold commissioner, in
the Lillooet Mining Division for
the year 1915:
Free miners' certificates issued,
240; mineral claims recorded,
133; certificates of work recorded, 145; placer claims recorded
and rerecorded, 18; placer and
dredging leases in force. 37;
conveyances, etc., recorded, 38.
Revenue.—Free miners' certificates, $1,378.50; minining receipts general. $1,655.35; tax,
crown-granted mineral claims,
$412.75.   Total, $3,446.60.
"Kitchener's Own"
None was more appreciative
than Lord Kitchener of the part
Canada is playing in the war. and
we note with sympathy that one
of the best of the battalions
which Canada is now raising
should bear the name of "Kitchener's Own." That would be
Canada's best answer to an
enemy who hoped that the loss
of tbe maker of new armies
would paralyze the empire's
fighting arm. —Canada Gazette.
Books captured in the second
raid on Logan Billingsley's "Day
and Night Store," in Seattle,
showed that his profits in the
bootlegging business were netting
him about $1,000 per day. In
comparing the rates of profit in
this illcit business and the amount
of the fines the Star newspaper
calls attention to the futility of
the courts attempting to stamp
out the evil.

DIED FROM WOUNDS
We regret to see in the casualty lists just published the name
of Bruce Forrester, who died from
wounds received during the recent great advance. For some
time Mr. Forrester worked at the
Seton Lake hatchery, and subsequently was a member of Mr. G.

the completion of his work in the
fall of 1914, he joined the Canadian expeditionary forces.
COPELAND ROAD TROUBLE
The trouble between the P. G.
E. railway and the Provincial
Government over the old Copeland road will likely be settled in
the near future. The company
claimed the right to close the
road and accordingly built a fence
across it. This greatly intefered
with the farmers on the west side
of the Fraser river and they made
vigorous protests. The fence
was pulled down and then a ditch
was dug across the road. Under
instructions from the Government, Mr. J. K. More, road superintendent, had the ditch filled
up this week, and the P. G. E.
people, who have acted like babies
in this affair, have the next move.
The company will likely ask for
a slight diversion in the road, and
in the meantime it will be kept
open.      	
BIG GAME HUNTERS
Mr. H. D. Shelden, of Detroit.
Mich., accompanied by his two
sons. Messrs. Henry and Alger
Shelden, arrived in town on

guide, had charge of the party.
They will first enjoy some fishing
in Gun Creek Lake and will afterwards try their luck at the big
game about the middle of September at the head waters of the
North Fork and Bridge rivers.
Mr. Manson had as assistants
three Indians, and 23 pack horses
and provisions to last six ,weeks
were taken along.
A Great Chance
"They were two simple-minded
Tommies, and they were far from
their regiment, bewildered and
lost. Suddenly they saw a
German division in the distance.
Now it happened that on their
way up to the front the yarn had
been spread that the Colonel had
offered to give ten shillings for
every German captured, and our
Tommies fully believed it, and
when they saw the Germans one
cheerfully said to the other: Bill,
here's twenty thousand Huns,
and only you and me to divide
them up at 10 bob apiece."—

THE WAR FUND.
The people of Lillooet and
district are to be congratulated on the magnificent way
they have contributed to the
cause of the Empire, both in
men and money, since the
war began. Over $5,000 has
been paid into the different
war funds, and about sixty
men from this village and
surrounding district have
answered the call to go to
the front and fight for their
King and country. We venture to say that in no part of
Canada have the people
shown more liberality in giving to this righteous cause
than right here in our own
neighborhood.
This is the spirit that is
going to carry the Empire to
victory, the spirit of those
who are the support of the
nation, who have given their
dearest possessions for the
country, who have sacrificed
much and are as quietly determined to sacrifice more.
And when this is said, it
might also be said that as the
third year of the war is entered, Canada has done much
—a promise of the inflexible
determination to stand by the
guns to the last. An army
of over 350,000 men has
been raised from an English-
speaking population of some
four and a half millions. This
vast body of troops, for Canada, has been trained and
equipped with despatch and
efficiency. Today they are
showing the stuff they are
made of on the Western
front, showing that they are
the equals of the new armies
of the Mother Country.
Canada's finances have
been handled with skill and
the nation's resources splendidly mobilized for war,
munitions in vast quantities
have gone forward, and millions of dollars have been
provided for the purchase of
war materials. But above
all, the people are back of
this fight, and ready for
greater sacrifices. That
means victory, for the Empire is united in the determination as the anniversary
consecration services everywhere demonstrated.
the throne, and before he is
old enough to realize what it
means he has entered upon
his training as war lord.
This is militarism, naked
and undisguised. It is the
perfect Prussian ideal, which,
as Moltke said, makes war
the national industry. It is
the first theory in which the
dynasty that holds the destiny of the German Empire
in its hands breeds and educates the future rulers of the
German people. Before they
are out of leading-strings
they must be consecrated to
the holy cause of the war and
shaped for the career of a
war lord to whom millions of
Germans owe their obedience.
It may be that the ten-
year-old Prince William, upon whom the title of lieutenant has been thrust at a time
when his country is in the
midst of a disastrous war,
will live to emulate his grandfather forty years hence by
leading Germany through a
similar bloody experience.
Or, it may be, by that time
the German people will have
taken control of their own
affairs and dispensed with
the glorious services of their
Hohenzollerns. — New York
World.	
We notice the following
paragraph in the last number
of the London Weekly Times:
On July 5th a train with
70 wagons passed through
Brussels from the front filled
with dead Germans tied up
in bundles of five. The
bodies were to be cremated
at Aix La Chappele.

WATER NOTICE
British traditions and customs
which have been established for
centuries, and which are dear to
the heart of every Britisher, as
they represent in him the very
foundation of that Government,
which he believes to be the freest j
on the face of the earth, are
thrown to the ground and trampled in the dust by the B.C. Prohibition Act. This phase of the
referendum legislation on which
the electors will vote on September 14th should be carefully investigated by every loyal British
subject.
A fundamental principle of the
private life of every Britisher is
that "A man's home is his
castle," and the sentment expressed by this motto is dear to
the heart of every man who enjoys the protection of the British
flag. The B.C. Prohibition Act,
without the slightest regard for
this just and dearly cherished
right of the subject, sets this
principle absolutely at naught,
and tramples it under foot.
Clause 48 of the Act provides that
any officer of the law, provincial
or local, may at any time and
without a warrant, forcibly break
into the home of any citizen if he
has the merest information or the
least idea that the occupant of the
house possesses liquor. Not only
may he break into the home, but,
having entered, he may forcibly
break open any closet, chest, box
or receptacle in the house.
The question as to whether
such methods are in accordance
with British traditions and custom
will be answered at once by one
little word which contains only
two letters.
Another fundamental rule of
British life is that when a man is
attacked through the process of
law he has a right to know who
is behind the prosecution. This
just and time-honored custom is
absolutely thrown overboard by
clause 29 of the Prohibition Act.
This provides that when anybody
gets the idea in his head that a
citizen has liquor in his possession he can go to a constable and
tell him what he thinks. On the
basis of this casual conversation
the constable can make a complaint and enter a prosecution in
his own name. The informer
runs no risk of his identity being
disclosed as the Act specifically
provides that the constable need
not "Communicate the name of
the person giving such information."
What an oppertunity this clause
opens up for a man or woman getting
square with a neighbor, with whom there
may be a neighborhood quarrel, or where
a neighborhood grudge exists? What a
wide field this clause opens up for the
blackmailer, that type of person despised
by all honorable men? And yet such
methods as these are deliberately outlined
in the B.C. Prohibition Act. Is it any
wonder that even ardent prohibitionists,
who are also true British subjects, are refusing to approve of an Act containing
such un-British provisions.
Another fundamental rule of British
law is that a man is innocent until he is
proven guilty. The B.C. Prohibition Act
seeks to overthrow this firmly established
principle, its provisions stating that when
prosecution is entered against a man on
account of his having liquor in his possession, it is up to the accused person to
prove that this liquor was legally acquired
and legally held. In plain English, this
provision means that a man is guilty until he proves himself innocent. Such legislation is certainly not only un-British,
but also rank injustice.
Only a few of the un-British provisions
of this counterfeit Prohibition Bill are enumerated above. It is believed, however,
that the mention of these few instances
will arouse the electors to a sense of their
duty as loyal subjects, true to British
traditions and customs, to such an extent
