also for donations with which to
purchase goods,
Mr. W. Elliott $5 (refreshments)
Mrs. A. Smith $5 (toys, etc) and
other donations too numerous to
mention but for which the committee wish to thank the donors.
Apropos to our thanks, it is
quite obvious that for the committee to thank all those who
have kindly assisted to make
"Our Day" successful other than
collectively is almost impossible.
The true measure of thanks comes
not from the organizing committee but from our own inner consciousness that we have by our
humble efforts been able through
the medium of that noble institution the British Red Cross to
alleviate some of the pain and
suffering endured by our noble
heroes on the blood stained battlefields of Europe.
If we can but think that our
assistance has enabled even in a
small degree, to help the members
of this organization, on their errands of mercy; has helped to
lessen the racking tortures of the
wounded, or comfort the last
hours , of those who have given
their lives that we may live, what
more could we wish. The sigh
of relief from our wounded boys,
far outweighs the thanks and
phrases  of an orgarising com-

Seton Lake, near which you will
notice the town of Lillooet marked in type of a size which conveys no adequate idea of the relative value of this beauty spot.
Why so? Because the world has
not found it. Hear it has nestled in its modesty for centuries,
the home only of the native Indian, and, since the early fifties,
the hunting ground of the gold
seeker and the big game enthusiast.
Men have come afar in search
of its mineral riches and the sport
it offered to the devotee, of the
rod and gun. They have washed
its golden sands, and departed
leaving footprints only. The
hunter has returned to the Old
World with his trophies from Lillooet, and a desire to revisit that
charming spot among the mountains and lakes.
The lust of gold has always enticed men to follow difficult and
dangeroot traits. The excitement of the chase has likewise
tempted them from the beaten
paths to the abode of the deer,
the cougar, and the bear.

The Late Pte. Landsborough
(from the Kilmarnock Standard)
In the Henderson U.F. Church, Rev. J.
Hamilton made the following reference to
the late PrivateWalter Landsborough, the
fourth son of the late Rev. Dr. Landsborough, whose death was intimated in
last week's "Standard:" -
Before concluding our service this morning I desire to refer to the sad event, intimated during this week-end, which
touches very closely our congregation,
namely the death of Private Walter Landsborough, of the Canadian contingent, who
was killed in action in France on the 14th
of September.
"Walter Landsborough was the kind of
man who found a particular plaue in the
hearts of his old schoolfellows and all who
were associated with him. I always remember how Henderson congregation
took him to their hearts on one occasion
(1901) when the Sabbath morning meeting gave the two boys a send-off when
they were home for their father's jubilee.
After some presentations and complimentary speeches Walter replied in his unaf
fected and generous way, and finished up
by saying that he did not expect they
would make much money, but one thing
Henderson Church would expect of them
would be that they should do the right
thing, and he hoped that they would do
that. He was the kind of man who should
have lived to be a leader of men in the
West. But when the call to serve his
country came he was determined to go to
the front, and although rejected several
times he finally succeeded in getting passed. No doubt in this also he did the
right thing." If Walter Landsborough is
a type of the young man who leave the
homeland for the dominions and colonies
across the seas—and I think that we have
every reason to believe that he was—then
Britain can surely be proud of her exiled
The present editor of the Lillooet Prospector was not personally acquainted with
"Walter", as his more intimate friends a*
fectionately called him. But in business
relationships we found him most honorable, he even settling for his subscription
to the Prospector to date before leaving
for overseas.

Is well known in this district.
Wheat at Chicago has reached
its highest price since 1898. and
flour has correspondingly risen,
The price being in the neighborhood of $10 a barrell. This is
more than double the figure ruling before the war broke out.
The indications are that there
will be still further rises before
another harvest season comes

be far off.

The Lillooet Prospector
Published in the Interest of Lillooet District.
NOV.  3, 1916.
Cities sometimes fail to
recognise the interdependence that must always exist
between them and the country at the back of them, and
dwellers in country places
are not always alive to the
fact that what concerns the
cities concerns them also. If
a city develops industrial enterprises it is a benefit not
only to its own inhabitants
but to the entire surrounding district for hundreds of
miles. An instance is offered
by the example of Vancouver. Vancouver has begun
to build ships, in response to
the present urgent call for
ocean freighters. Three
wooden vessels and one steel
one are on the stocks at
North Vancouver. There is
every reason to suppose that
this will lead to considerable
manufacturing development,
and to the employment ultimately of a vast army of
workers. No doubt the inception of the payrolls will
benefit the Vancouver stores.
But it will also benefit every
part of the area within range,
since it will afford a larger
and a growing market for
all kinds of produce.
The city workers must be
fed and they mus either draw
their supplies from the country at the back of them or
import them.
If we examine the conditions in an old settled country like Britain, we shall be
convinced of the truth of
these conditions, Liverpool,
Glasgow and the places on
the Tyneside are great emporiums, but their development and success has resulted from a highly organized
agricultural area from which
they draw their supplies.
We are therefore justified in
saying that progress in Vancouver means progress in
Lillooet, and the neighbourhood, if we are shrewd e-
nough and persevering e-
nough to make the best use
of our chances. In these
days of competition success
is not a plum that drops into
everybody's mouth. It is
the reward of the worker
who does not know when he
is beaten.
The Dominion has been
happy in the appointments
which have from time . to
time been made in the viceregal office, and the poplar-
ity of our last Governor General is a testimony to the
fact. The Duke of Connaught possesses many qualities which entitle him to our
respect apart, from his personal character! but the admirable   way in which he

to how to do it—somehow or
other we manage to do the
right thing in the long run."
That very sentence shews
that the Duke is aware of the
strength and the weakness
that are combined in our
"methods of dealing with
things," and that he is the
right sort of man to undertake the duties of the post to
which he has been assigned.
Moreover he explained that
he "left British politics behind and that he would have
no politics at all in Canada."
He recognizes that this is a
democratic and constitutional
country, and that his position
will be in the spirit as well
as in the letter, essentially a
constitutional one.
Although the war has been
long and tedious, . we are
looking forward to its close,
and a period in which we
trust the prosperity of our
beloved Canada will be such
as to eclipse that of previous
years. And in any combined
efforts we may make towards that end we may safely reckon on the co-operation
and wise council of the new
Governor General.

The British authorities
have taken a wise step in
their action with regard to
the newspapers controlled by
that notorious perverter of
the truth, Mr. Hearst. They
have taken from the International News Service the
right of access to the Official
Press Bureau, where men
who do not know what news
is, mutulate the work of men
who do. They have also forbidden the use of the telegraph services to the same
The  result  may surprise
British readers.   Their country is not peculiar in having
men  who  can make what
people take for news, without any communication with
or from the place they choose
as the scene of the events
they describe.    Long before
the late Pope Leo died, enterprising papers in the United States pictured the scene
at his death bed and even re-
ported his dying words.
When the Titanic went down,
reports that the people on
board had been rescued and
were on their way to Halifax
gave brief relief,  and then
heavier anxiety to those who
waited expectantly for news
of friends.   At the investigation which followed it was
shown  that   these  reports
came from Montreal.   The
condemned agencies will continue to spread reports  of
things that do not happen in
. spite of the prohibition. But
by little and little people will
begin to distinguish between
the false and the true.
