PREMIER ACCORDED
GOOD RECEPTION
TEACH BEE-KEEPING TO SOLDIERS
Compares the Programme of the Two
Political Parties—Mr. Maitland
Meets With Opposition.
Premier Bowser addressed a
large audience in Santini's hall
last Saturday night and received
a most enthusiastic reception. He
spoke for over an hour, and his
remarks were frequently punctuated by applause as he rehearsed
the record of his administration.
The Premier dealt chiefly with
the political programme of the
government as compared with
that offered by Mr. Brewster for
the Liberal party, and in drawing
the parallel he showed in brilliant
relief the progressive measures
already made law by his administration against the gloomy background of the Liberal leader's
picturization of a bankrupt province and ruined people.
Mr. Bowser expressed appreciation of the large turnout of
ladies, and said that account of
the great interest they had taken
in the Red Cross and other organizations, and also in urging
the men to go the front, never
again would women be taken
from the place they now occupy
in public affairs. His aim was to
make British Columbia a better
province for the soldiers to come
to after the war. If the people
at home had a right to vote, those
who had sacrificed time and opportunity to go to the front to
tight should have the same, and
that was the reason for his soldiers' vote act, to which the Liberals objected.
The government had set aside
large areas of land exclusively
for returned soldiers and other
lands were to be sold and the
money raised to make loans to the
saldiers, so that they could buy
stock or implements to start them
on their homesteads.
Mr. Brewster had also knocked
the shipbuilding policy, a policy
that had already resulted in the
laying of eleven keels. Mr.
Brewster said these ships were no
good, yet higher authorities on
sea-going vessels than the Liberal leader had given them the
highest classification given to any
wooden ships. Mr. Brewster
had said there would be no traffic
for the ships. The speaker said
that the Peace River country had
been declared to be greatest
wheat growing country of the
world, and with the completion of
the Pacific Great Eastern railway
into the Peace River the grain
from there will pass through Lillooet on its way to the coast and
would have its natural outlet by
the Pacific gateway.
Much had been done in the last
session to aid agriculture. They
were also interested in mining
and he outlined the various measures that had been taken to make
easier the building up of the mining industry. He referred to the
legislation passed at the iast session giving assistance to prospectors in the way of free assays,
trails to claims, etc., and said
that it was the policy of the government to encourage the miner
in every way possible.
The Premier said the issuing of
the writ by Mr. Brewster had
been a most reckless action. It
meant he was willing to tie up
Under the direction of Mr.
Williams Hugh, secretary of the
Bee-keepers Association of B.C.,
the returned soldiers living at
the military convalescent home
at Esquimalt will take up the interesting study of apiculture.
The soldiers are taking up many
interesting subjects in the various
branches of agriculture, and it is
with the idea of giving them elementary training in such subjects
as their present conditions and
surroundings allow, that this
work is being done.
The B.C. department of agriculture has already placed the
services of many of the trained
agriculturists of the department
at the disposal of the men at the
home, and further development
will be made from time to time.
LOCAL  ITEMS   OF INTEREST
PROTECT THE BIROS
Editor Prospector,-Apart from
the work of game wardens and
other government officials very
litt'e is done to enforce the excellent British Columbia laws relative vo the protection of small
birds except in the vicinity of
cities and towns and even then
public opinion and a growing
knowledge of ths usefulness of
insectivorous birds are the most
efficient factors in their protection. A comparatively small
number of these birds breed near
cities, and a notice I read the
other day tacked to the door of a
prospector's cabin in McGillivray
Creek suggests to me that similar printed notices must be sent
by the provincial game warden or
some provincial society interested
in the protection of birds to country postmasters and storekeepers
throughout the province, or they
might be tacked up along trails
by local game wardens as are the
fire prevention warnings which
one sees everywhere. The notice
referred to read: "Please do not
shoot our pet birds and squirrels.
They are not dangerous and are
not useful for food," and was
signed by Mr. J. H. Williams,
the manager of the McGillivray
Mountain Mines Co. I afterwards met Mr. Williams and one
of his partners, Mr. Cooper, and
found them to be as so many
prospectors and miners, lovers of
the birds which are so often their
sole companions in the woods and
mountains. As Mr. Williams well
put it, "One doesn't expect a
small boy with his first' 22 to
think about what he is doing, but
to see grown men. sportsmen,
killing everything around them
just to hear the gun, makes me
sick." J. M. MACOUN.
Lillooet, Aug. 30.
the business of the province for
political advantage.
Mr. R. R. Maitland, of Vancouver, also spoke. He dealt with
the plugging charges at the election of M. A. Macdonald and also
the trial of Gosden on the charge
of perjury. His summing up of
the evidence in the latter case
evidently touched a sore spot as
a couple of men in the audience
commenced heckling the speaker
and he found it dfficult to continue. An Irishman, who had a
grievance against the P. G. E.
railway, was the worst offender.
He was evidently out for the
purpose of creating a little excitement, as he claimed he had no
vote and said that one side was
as bad as the other.
Mr. Wm. Adams presided.
W. A. Oswald, assistant mov-|
ing picture inspector, is in town
on business.
Mr Chas. Noel, of Bridge
River, is spending a few days in

Mrs. J. N. Cran and baby arrived home on Friday evening
last, accompanied by Miss Helen
Rand, of New Westminster.
Mr. and Mrs. Mcintosh, of
Vancouver, who have been visiting friends here during the past
week, Jeft on Thursday, Mr. Mcintosh going to Bridge River.
Miss Eleanor Martin, of New
Westminster, accompanied by her
nephew Master Billy Doherty, is
visiting her sister, Mrs. J. N.
Cran.
Messrs. Roy Brown, of the
Province; Wilson Blue, News-
Advertiser; D. N. Mclntyre, deputy-minister of fisheries, and R.
R. Maitland, of Vancouver, accompanied Premier Bowser on his
visit to Lillooet.
Mr. Daniel Hamilton, of Bridge
River, is spending a few days in
town. Mr. Hamilton has been
prospecting in that district for
many years and has discovered
some valuable claims.
Mr. and Mrs. Mark Eagleson
are back it town after a few
weeks spent in the Bridge River
district, where Mr. Eagleson
owns a number of mineral
claims.
W. Fleet Robertson, pro/incial
mineralogist, is on an inspection
trip to the Texas Creek molybdenite mine this week. Newton W.
Emmens, a mining engineer from
Vancouver, representing the
Kusa Spelter Co., also visited the
mine.
Geo. Prosser. buyer for the Independent Packing Co., Vancouver, has purchased over 600 head
of cattle in this district during
the past few weeks. He has already shipped ten cars of stock
and six more will go to the coast
next week.
Mr. and Mrs. Marsh, of
New Westminster, are spending
a few days at Craig Lodge. They
have been visiting at different
points along the line of the P. G.
E. railway and are delighted with
the climate and scenery. Mr.
Marsh is connected with the B.
C. Electric Railway Co.
Mr. J. B. Perkins has sold out
his interest in the Texas Creek
molybdenite mine to his partner,
Mr. A. F. Hautier, of Lytton.
Both gentlemen are town today
completing the deal. Mr. Hautier
informs us that has nearly ten
tons of ore sacked and ready for
shipment, while twenty or thirty
tons more are on the dump. This
ore will be shipped as soon as the
trail from the mine is completed.
Five men are now at work opening the road and additional men
and teams will be put on the job
as soon as they can be secured.
Mr. Perkins will take a short rest
and will then start out on a
prospecting trip in this district.
Mr. A. McDonald, of Clinton,
Conservative candidate for the
Lillooet riding, is in town. Mr.
McDonald paid a visit to the
Bridge River district this week.
He feels quite confident that he
will again be the member for this
constituency on the evening of
the 14th inst.
Dr. Geo. Sanson, of Ashcroft,
died in the Jubilee hospital, Victoria, on Sept. 5th. He entered
the hospital to undergo an operation and it was there his death
occurred. He was 54 years
of age. Dr. Sanson was well
known in Lillooet and was the
owner of considerable property
in this district.
RECRUITING OFFICER IN TOWN
Sergeant Hadley. recruiting officer for the 6th Field Co. Can.
Engineers, is in Lillooet today
endeavouring to secure men for
his Company. Anton Hanson, a
rancher from Fountain Valley,
was the first to sign on, and the
officer hopes to be able to get a
large number of recruits in this
district. Men who are anxious to
learn a trade cannot do better
than join the 6th Engineers, as
different trades are taught, such
as bridge building, construction
of drains, water systems, etc.,
all of which will be useful to them
in civil life. Headquarters for
this district are at Clinton, and
particulars may be had from
Sergt. Hadley or any of the provincial constables. Men are sent
overseas every two weeks. J. T.
Farmer, who left here in July to
join the Engineers, sends an appeal through Sergt. Hadley to the
single men in Lillooet district to
join his Company. Unmarried
men and those who have no one
depending upon them should be
the first to go. Thos. Thorpe, of
Clinton, was killed in the war re-
centl , leaving an aged father
and a wife and six children. If
the young unmarried men would
come forward it would not be
necessary for men with families
to go to the front.
RED CROSS DAY, OCT. 19
The meeting called for Wednesday evening to discuss the arrangements to be made in response to Lieut.-Governor Barnard's appeal for the British Red
Cross Day on Oct. 19th, did not
take place on account of lack of
attendance, only three people
putting in an appearance. It has
been suggested that the ladies
of Lillooet take charge of the
arrangements for the collection
of funds for the Red Cross on
"Our Day", Oct. 19th, and another meeting will be called at an
early date, when it is hoped there
will be a large attendance. Lieut.-
Governor Barnard's letter will
appear in the Prospector next
week.

Santini's hall on Wednesday
evening, Sept. 13, in the interest
of J. B. Bryson, the Liberal candidate, who will also speak. mmM

SOLDIERS' VOTES.
This is how the London
Telegraph describes the process of taking the soldiers'
votes:
"The voter having marked
his paper in the presence of
the presiding officer, but in
such a manner as not to disclose how he is voting, will
fold it so that it cannot be
read, and place it in an envelope which will be given
him for the purpose. At the
same time he will have an
opportunity of stating 'Yes'
or 'No' as to whether he is
in favor of bringing 'the
British Columbia Prohibition
Act' into force, and whether
he is in favor of the extension of the electoral franchise
to women. To enable him to
do this two small printed
slips of paper will be given
him, which will be placed in
the same envelope.
"The envelope is an important document in the scheme.
On the front of it is a printed
form of affidavit which the
soldier will have to sign, and
in which he will state that he
is entitled to vote, and give
the name of his district. On
the back of the envelope is a
form to be signed by the presiding officer.
"The envelope containing
the ballot paper will then be
placed in a bag or other suitable receptacle, which will be
sealed and marked 'Soldiers'
votes,' and sent forthwith to
the Agent-General for British
Columbia in London. At a
date to be announced the
bags received will be opened
in London in the presence of
scrutineers. The ballot papers will be taken from the
envelopes, and, in order that
secrecy may be preserved,
without being opened or examined they will be placed into a ballot-box for the electoral districts in respect of
which they are marked. The
envelope will afford this information. After all the
papers have been so deposited, the boxes will be opened
and the votes counted, and
the result will be cabled to
British Columbia by the
Agent-General, who will afterwards forward the ballot
papers to the Deputy Provincial Secretary."

Lillooet.  - British Columbia THE  LILLOOET  PROSPECTOR
THE FUTURE OF COPPER.
Next to iron, the most valuable
industrial metal is copper, of
which the world now uses about
a million tons a year, more than
half of which conies from the
mines in the United States. Since
the beginning of the war the
wastage of all common metals
has been tremendous. The belligerents have been hurling iron,
steel, lead and copper at each
other in quantities so vast that
future archaeologists may map
the course of the struggle from
the scrap heaps.
Germany especially is in urgent
need of copper. Long ago the
government melted down its copper and its nickel coins and substituted iron currency. In spite
of this the price of copper and of
bronze soon rose from about fifteen cents a pound to eighty
cents. In Germany the scarcity
of copper is owing not only to its
use in many kinds of munitions
but also to the fact that the output of the mines of the country
-about 55,500,000 pounds a year
—is always much less than the
needs of the nation require.
At present two-thirds of the
world's production of .copper is
absorbed by the electrical industry. Telephone and telegraph
systems have taken 600,000 tons,
submarine cables about 10,000
tons, and electric railway, lighting and power stations in America alone have used about 50,000
tons. Copper enters extensively
into the manufacture of machinery, automobiles, builders' hardware and nickel-plated goods; for
brass or bronze, of which it is
the chief constituent, has a
thou&and uses and forms a part
of articles as diverse as shoe eyelets ancl the roof of houses.
Even before the war economists
predicted that the present sources
of supply of copper would last not
longer than a generation. They
estimate that the mines of the
world still contain 20,000,000
tons. Even at the present rate
of consumption therefore, the
supply now in sight would last
only about twenty years, and the
rate of consumption, instead of
being stationery, is constantly
rising. Twenty-five years ago
the world produced 265,400 tons,
last year 1,000,000 -tons. The
price in America has already risen from thirteen to twenty-seven
cents a pound. Evidently the
world must either find new deposits or discover a substitute
metal.
NEW ERA OF PROSPERITY
Returns from the mining industry in British Columbia for
last month exceeded those of the
month previous by $5,090,000,
and tht.t was the record month in
the history of the province.
This condition is the outcome
of practical development of new
ore bodies in old mines and opening of new territory, and in view
cf the fact that the industry is
receiving the greatest impetus
since the discovery of precious
metals in the province, it portends
an era of prosperity unexceeded
even in the land boom days. It
differs from those days in that it
will create millions in new wealth
which will percolate through
every avenue of trade in the form
of wages and for supplies, while
a few fortunate speculators gathered in all the money with the
realty boom.
Added to the revival of precious metal mining comes the announcement of the minister of
mines, the Hon. Lome Campbell,
that steps will be taken to develop the coal tar industry. Some
idea of the importance of this industry may be gained when it is
stated that the by-products of
the coal mines of British Colum
bia and Alberta in 1912 amounted
to 12,379,167 pounds of ammonium sulphate and 43,383,399 gallons of tar.
The major portion of these byproducts are going to waste.
In its mineral deposits British
Columbia has an asset unsurpassed by any portion of America
and now that development is beginning there should oe a quickening of the commercial pulse,
and everyone join in hastening
the day when the prospector
again comes into his own.
If any portion of the U. S. A.
possessed such a storehouse of
undeveloped resources there
would be a boom.—The Golden
