LILLOOET, B. C, FRIDAY, AUGUST 7, 1914.
$2 PER YEAR
Vancouver Exhibition to be
Big Success
With three big exhibits from
the Dominion Government and a
half-dozen from the Provincial
Government in course of preparation the directors and management of the Vancouver Exhibition Association are predicting a
great success for the fifth annual
fair which will be opened this
year on September 3rd and continue till September 12 when all
the many features of the big fair
will have been completed.
The big, roomy buildings will
be filled with exhibits. The
buildings themselves are spick
and span and just about ready
for the thousands of displays
which they will house. Nothing
has been neglected, nothing left
undone for the comfort and convenience of the visitors who will
flock from all parts of the province.
Special fares will be granted by
the transportation companies to
Vancouver exhibition visitors.
The Dominion Government will
show ten divisions of exhibits
from its Experimental Farms
branch. Its live stock branch
will be packed with interesting
displays and wool exhibits will
complete its display.
The pro/incial government will
show a wealth of timber and forestry products. Its display of
finishing woods, made up in little
rooms and offices, its photographs
and maps together with its ex-
perls and its literature will contribute in no small way to the
knowledge which BritiSp Columbians already have of their own
province.
The skid-road, the big amusement row, will be filled with good
things, The industrial exhibits,
the women's exhibits, the baby
show, the horticulture display,
the stock pens, the horse races
ard every other feature has been
improved. This year the management started out to make the
fair better than ever before,
and are endeavouring to make it
a huffh success.

London Aug 4-King George's]
telegram to the Russian Emperor
in a final effort to avert war, and
the Emperor's reply has been
made public. The King, expressing the opinion that there had
been some misunderstanding to
lead to the breaking off of nego-
ciations said:
"I make a personal appeal to
you to remove the misapprehension and leave open the ground
for negociations foif possible
peace."
The Russian Emperor replied
that he would have accepted the
proposals had not Germany declared war.
"Germany" says the Emperor,
showed no dispositson to mediate
and her preparations and those of
Austria made it imperative that
Russia should mobilize, but I gave
most categorical assurances to
the German Emperor that the
Russian troops would not move
so long as negociations continued."
The reply concludes: "I trust
that your country will not fail to
support Russia and France. God
bless and protect you."
London, Aug. 4— King George
today addressed a message to all
the   British Dominions Oversea
expressing  his  appreciation   of
their spontaneous assurance that

the Mother Country.    "They recall to me," His Majesty says,
"the great self-sacrifice and help
given by them in the past to the
Mother    Country,    I   shall   be
strengthened   in   the  charge of
I the   great  responsibility   which
rests upon me in the confident
| belief that in this time  of trial
I tny Empire will be united, calm
'and   resolute,   and   trusting  in
God."
London Aug 4 -Thousands assembled tonight before Buckingham Palace until the King and

Sir Edward Carson, the Unionist leader, announced in the House
that a majority of the Ulster
volunteers were ready for home
service, and that a large contingent were willing for any service
where they could be useful.
Hon. Edward David Millen,
Australian minister of defence,
when asked respecting the possibility of sending troops abroad,
if required, said: "Australia is no
fair weather partner. If the necessity arises there is no reason
to suppose thatany other attitude
would be taken than one of loyalty and willingness toco-operate
with the mother country."
Germany has made a new enemy.   The invasion of Belgium
adds that kingdom to the group
of hostile powers,    Belgium is a
small country, but their is a population equal to that of Canada,
I a peace establishment of 50,000,
! with a war strength of 100,000,
1 besides 80,000 in the garrison,
General  News  of Lillooet
District
"Owing to the summary rejection by the German Government
of the request made by His Majesty's Go\ernmentthat the neutrality of Belgium should be
respected His Majesty's ambassador at Berlin has received his
passports, and His Majesty's
Government has declared to the
German Government that a state
of war exists between Great
Britain and Germany from 11
o'clock p.m. Aug. 4."
From all over Canada comes
news of men eager to enlist in
the Nations cause, and are willing to be sent across the Alantic
should the call come. A telegram
from Winnipeg to the News-
advertiser states that all regiments are now over strength,
and that the Militia in Winnipeg
is at fever heat and seemingly
every able bodied man in the city
has gone war mad and is ready
to cross the Atlantic.
The West can send 24,000 men
at any given moment.
No news with regard to mobilization has come through yet but
is expected any minute, the order
to call the soldiers together will
not be in vain, but rather the response will stagger the civilized
world when they see the loyalty
of Canadians.

Letter to the Editor
To the Editor-
Very few of our citizens seem
to realize that we are engaged in
a life and death struggle for our
homes, and the unity of our Empire. We have not been up
against a war for our existance
for over ninety-nine years. The
preservation of the Empire from
assaults cannot be permanently
assured unless every part of it is
prepared to fight in a quarrel
which may not appear to be its
own.
The interests of a British community in one part of the globe
may not appear to directly involved in the fortunes or the fate of
another community of the same
race in another part. Yet if one
of these communities be overborne owing to the failure of
others to send timely help, the
Empire would be broken. The
Empire must all be prepared to
strike as one man.
It is our duty to hold intact by
land an sea all that our Empire
builders have left us. The modern Britisher has started to do
that duty, and we will soon prove
to the world that there is no decay in the heart of the Empire.
The Lions cubs of today are just
as brave as the men who climbed
the heights of Quebec with Wolf
or the men who formed the
squares at bloody Waterloo.

AUG. 7.   1914.
The monarchies of continental
Europe have been sowing the
wind for a number of years, and
may now be rushing to reap the
whirlwind.
The conditions which confront
us today were bound to come
sooner or later as a consequence
of the extreme militarism of the
powers. There is no knowing
what the outcome will be, in fact
the whole map of Europe may be
changed ere long. One thing
however is certain, that some of
us will get a few "surprises"
before the war with all its re-
pulsiveness is brought to a close.
An unusual Government publication has recently been issued
by the Dominion Parks Branch of
the Department of the Interior.
It consists of a small souvenir
booklet artistically bound in du-
glex leather wild grass p^per and
tied with an olive gresn silk cord
The lettering is embossed in gold
and a very unique design has
been chosen for the cover. The
latter is cut out so as to form a
sort of frame and in this is inset
a spray of Canadian heather from
the Rocky Mountains Park, the
purplish flowers of the heather
against the wood-brown background making a very attractive
colour combination.
It will no doubt be a matter of
surprise to many to learn that
Canada possesses a heather of
her own.
The Departments main object
is to call the attention of Canadians to the National parks of
the Dominion, not only to the attractions they offer to those who
are able to visit them, but also to
their value in the National life.
Their commercial potentialities
are somewhat startling. It is
pointed out that owing to the increasing modern taste for travel,
striking scenery has become one
of the most valuable sources of
revenue a nation can possess.
The tourist revenue of Switzerland per year is places at 150
million dollars, that of France at
600 millions, that of Italy at over
100 millions. The sum which
Americans annually spend abroad
is estimated at the enormous total
of five hundred million dollars.
A new line of development
which is worthy of consideration
is suggested, viz: the provision
of national parks near the congested centres of population. All
modern town planning makes
provision for parks and playgrounds within the city itself,
but while these are useful and
necessary they provide a means
of recreation for a few hours at
most. The national parks would
reserve large acres where people
would be free to go for as long as
they desired. Such parks would
be, in reality "people's estate"
and would afford to the ordinary
citizen many of the advantages
which the man of wealth possesses in his country estate.
