PROSPECTOR
VOL. 4, NO. 8
LILLOOET, B. C, FRIDAY, DECEMBER 18, 1914.
$2 PER YEAR
General   News  of Lillooet
District
Skating has been the predominating sport during the past
week.
Mr. Morfey, late of the Union
Bank staff here, left this week
for Vancouver.
We have often wondered where
some hats came from—we know
now—Professor.
Don't forget the School concert and dance in the New Santini Hall, TO-NIGHT at 8 o'clock
sharp.
What would the German War
Lords have done had they heard
the singing of "Tipperary" last
Friday evening ?
Every year over 100,000 herring are caught in Canada—no
mention of how many suckers.
Believe that your neighbor is
as good as yourself, as worthy as
yourself, and as honest,.for the
chances are that he is more so.
Dont whisper "confidentially"
anything you have heard about
your neighbor, which you don't
bc-lieve--until you are sure you
are not guilty of the same old
thing.
•Telegraphic communications
can' now be sent direct to the
Northern country. Until quite
recently the messages had to be
sent via Ashcroft.
There is to be a Xmas tree for
the "grown ups." Anyone can
send a gift for their friends if
they so desire. See W.T.B., the
Mothodist Parsonage, Lillooet.
We are proud of the Lillooet
citizens and district residents for
the "grand rally" in connection
with the raising of Funds for the
war. The result to-day stands:
$500 Prince of Wales Fund; $500
Belgian Relief Fund; with the
sum of $440.83 on hand for the
Canadian Patriotic Fund.
Mr. C. Phair has received from
C. E. Wynn-Johnson, of Alkali
Lake the sum of $125, a donation
to the Canadian Patriotic Fund.
This amount was handed over to
the treasurer of the Lillooet War
Fund on December 4.
The committee wish to express
their appreciation of Mr. Johnson's generosity and valuable assistance.
The war fund now stands at
$440. £3
Children's Christmas Tree
Christmas is the Children's
Festival and the boys and girls of
Lillooet are to have a visit from
Santa Claus on Tuesday, December 22. He has promised to
bring something for "every child
in the town." He never disappoints his little friends. Look
out for santa.
Santa Claus says he will be
here, SURE. He has already begun to select gifts for his young
friends and will take care that he
does not overlook any boy or girl
when he comes to Lillooet at
Xmas time. Write a letter to
him boys and girls and tell him
your age and Post it At Once.
Patriotic Concert-
and Grand Dance
Splendid Rally of the Lillooet Citizens—Total Receipts
Amount to $126.00
Lillooet's second patriotic concert and dance in aid of the War
Fund was held in the New Santini Hall, on Main Street, last
Friday evening. The concert,
like the first one, was a great
success.
Mr. W. J. Abercrombie opened
the evening's entertainment by a
short but appropriate address,
explaining the objects of the
evening, also stating that he was
proud to be able to stand before
such a fine representative assembly of the Lillooet citizens, who
had gathered together not only
for a pleasant evening, but mainly to help forward so grand a
cause as the object of the evening.
The various numbers were of a
more or less patriotic character,
the stage being suitably Pecora-
ted to correspond.
The programme was so well
balanced that it was hard to pick
out the bright ar.d particular
stars of the evening, every number being enthuiastically encored
"Tipperary," sung by Mr. G.
Downton, was certainly the children's favorite, for they joined
in the chorus quite lustilly, in
fact, so lustilly, that the whole
assembly were quite "carried
away", and nothing but the repetition of the chorus would pacify their enthuiasm, the hall was
made to ring again and again.
The programme of the evening
was as follows:—
Tommy Atkins   Mr. Gibbs
Not that sort of person. Mrs.
Le Marc and Mr. Sangar.
Conversazione   Mr. Swann.
The flag that never comes down
Mr. Sangar.
Revenge   Mr. Downton.
Our Farm Mrs. Le Mare and
Mr. Sangar.
Tipperary   Mr. Downton.
Mother Machree    Mr. Keeley.
The old folks at hom_. Troupe
Solomon Levi   Mr. Sangar.
Polly Wolly Doodle Mr.
Downton'.
Croon, Croon,    Mrs. Le Mare.
That hat      Mr. Bridge.
Dooh Dah Mr. Goddrrd.
Kentucky Babe The Troupe.
Action song. Ten little nigger
boys Members of Troupe
The Maple Leaf was then sung,
followed by God Save the King.
Minstrel Troupe—Mrs. Christie,
Mrs. Le Mare, Miss Hurley,
Messrs. Bridge, Downton God-
dard, Hughes, Leslie, Le Mare,
Morfey, Slocum, Swann, Greig,
and Sangar.
Much credit is due to Mrs. P.
Le Mare for the able way in
which she managed the program
for the evening.
Mrs. F. E. Anderson presided
at the piano, and was much appreciated by all.
Mr. W. T. Bridge was the Professor of the Troupe, which position he so ably filled that a
stranger would be led to believe
that it was his life's work.
The dance which followed the
concert was also a grand success,
a large crowd remaining until the
wee small hours.
The total receipts from
the above concert amounted to
$126. The total net amount
which is to be handed to the Lillooet War Fund by Mrs. Le Mare
has not been arrived at yet, as
all expenses in connection with
the concert have not up to the
present been settled.
$7.CO of the money was obtained by candy sold during the entertainment, for which, we are
greatly indebted to Mesdames
Macfarlane, Christie, Duguid and
Mclntyre, all of whom contributed bags of home made candy.
Hull. —Forty-seven persons are
reported to have been killed at
Hartlepool and a number injured
in the bombardment of that port
by German cruisers this morning
The bombardment of Hartlepool
lasted for twenty-five minutes.
The several vessels which took
part in the operation are estimated at from two to six but never
were they visible from the shore.
London — Petrograd's water
supply reported to have been
cut off owing to the blocking of
the Neva conduits by ice, has
been restored, according to a
telegram from the Russian capital to Reuter's Telegram Company.
Paris.—Telegram from Geneva
to the temps says a despatch
from Berlin cofirms the report
that the Riser's condition is quite
serious. The Crown prince will
remain in Berlin for the present.
London, Dec 16. —The long expected German attack on England was made to-day, and for
the first time in the history of
the United Kingdom, hostile
warships bombarded English
towns. Scarborough, Hartlepool, Redcar and Whitby, on the
shore of the North Sea, were
shelled by German warships. The
extent of the damage inflicted
has not been revealed. It seems
possible, however, that Germany
has sent a few swift cruisers for
a raid on the coast of England,
largely for its moral effect, and
had not attemped an action with
its main fleet or an invasion of
England.
It is thought possible, however,
that the main German fleet may
have come out, and that the vessels which bombarded the British
coast were the only ones that
sccceeded in breaking through
Jellicoe's fleet- Province.
Important   Battles
the Coast
Along
London December 16. — The
Admiralty reports that engagements are taking place at several
points up and down the coast.
It is rumored that two German
cruisers have been sunk, but this
lacks official confirmation.
A statement given out by the
official information bureau says
that the German war ships which
have been bombarding the eastern coast of England have been
driven off by the West Hartlepool
fortress. An earlier official report reads as follows: "German
movements of some importance
are taking place in the North Sea
this morning. Scarborough and
Hartlepooi have been shelled.
Our flotillas have been engaged
with the enemy at various points. .
The situation is develloping."
The German ships bombarding
the coast were soon under fire
from British torpedo - boat destroyers, which steamed out to
attack them. The Germans then
went into action against the destroyers.
You no doubt noticed that the
British boats did not take long to
get after the enemy round the
coast.
The French war office to-day
gave out the following statement
"In Belgium the town of West-
end, has been violently bombarded by the British fleet."
Panama, Dec. 16 — Colonel
Goethals has again cabled to Secretary of War Garrison at Washington, setting forth his need for
torpedo-boat destroyers in canal
ports in order to preserve the
neutrality of the canal zone. In
his message the Colonel says he
has no means of preventing the
use of the canal or Panaman
ports as a means of communication and that these ports apparently are being used to this end
at the present time.
Rome—Despatches from Constantinople describe the Turks as
panic stricken by the sinking of
the battleship Messuddieh by a
British submarine. The expliot
has provoked indignation against
Germans for precipitating Turkey into war with defenses of the
Dardanelles in neglect.
In Austria, especiallay in Gali-
cia, cholera is spreading rapidly.
Eight hundred and forty-four
cases were reported during the
first week in November, in which
period there were 331 deaths.
There were 90 deaths in Vienna.
In Hungai'y, during the same
week there were 532 cases of
cholera.
Eight hundred mine workers
are entombed in a mine in
Japan.

Timber Sale X 266
Eldoiado Creek and Taylor
Basin
T; ylor basin is a deep de-
piession at an elevation of
about 5,000 feet, and just
above timber-line; on every
side are mountain peaks
reaching an elevation of from
1500 to 3000 feet higher,
with their southerly sides
covered almost to the summit with a most luxuriant
growth of grass and wild
flowers, but their northerly
sides are very precipitous and
covered with deep rock-siides
especially at the higher altitudes.
A wide belt of crystalline
limestone was seen crossing
the creek at about 1,000 feet
lower elevation than the basin itself. Aside from the
wide dykes of serpentine,
which on the southerly side
of the basin, reach frcm summit to summit as far as the
eye can pee in a southeast
and northwest direction, a-
mong the more noticeable
peculiarities of this section
are tbe very wide belts of
deep led and brown iron gossan that can be traced for
considerable distances, their
trend or line of strike being
northwest and southeast, and
the further fact that by panning-! ests this material almost always shows a fair
prospect in gold and large
quantities of iron-pyrites.
Messrs Taylor and Shuster
own 1 wo groups of claims-
trie Twenty-fourth of May
group, comprising five claims,
the Twenty-fourth of May,
Golden King, Comet Dolly,
and Jumbo; and the Wild
West group of three claims,
the Wild West, Eclipse, and
Snowstorm. The first of
these groups is located from
south-east to northwest from
the basin to the summit of
the mountain which separates Taylor Basin from Eldorado creek, and the second
group is located from the
creek in a westerly direction
towards the basin.
Sealed tenders will be received by the
Minister of Lands not later than noon
on the 10th day of January, 1915, for
tbe nurchase of"l.;cence 266, to cut £00-
000 feet of Duglas Fir and 50,000 railway ties, in the vicinity of Lot 31,
Lillooet District.
