A public meeting of the ladies
of Lillooet was held in the court
house on Tuesday evening last
for the purpose of raising funds
on Oct. 19th, "Our Day," for the
British Red Cross Society. On a
vote being taken, Mrs. Morrison
was elected president and Mrs.
Dr. Asselstine, secretary.
Owing to the possibility of un*
favourable weather it was decided to erect the different stalls in
Santini's hall, and the work
will be carried on on the one day
only, the same as on Aug. 4th,
from 2 to 5.30 p.m., with a
dance in the evening.
The following ladies will have
charge of the different stalls,
with power to add to their numbers: Fruit, Mrs. FoUer. Candy
^Miss Moscrop. Refreshments—
Mrs. Smith and Mrs. Hurley.
Joywluel-Mrs. Dr. Christia.
Home sewing and fancy work —
Mrs. Dr. Asselstine and Mrs.
Miller. Mr. LeMare and Mr,
Bridge will have charge of the
dance and the ladies will serve
refreshments.
We hear that Harry Gibbs, son
of Mr. and Mrs. S. Gibbs, of Lillooet, was wounded in the fighting
that took place in France- about
the middle of August. He is at
the Alexandra hospital, Coshanv
England, and reports himself as
getting along all right. Harry's
big body was an easy mark for a
Gerinan sniper.

A VIEW OF M.  FOSTER'S FRUIT FARM
QNE of the most productive
and best managed fruit farms
in the Lillooet district is that
owned by Mr. M. Foster, and
situated on the banks of the Fraser
river in the town of Lillooet.
There are thirty-eight acres of
land, all under the highest state
of cultivation. The orchard consists of about 350 full-bearing
fruit trees, all well known varieties, such as Snows, Northern
Spies, Delicious, Winter Banana,
Jonathans, etc., and a large
number of pear, plum, cherry,
prune and crabapple trees. The
crop this year is of the highest
grade, both in color and size, and
Mr. Foster expects to have about
1400 boxes of apples to sell. Apples grown in this orchard last
year eame through the winter in
perfect condition and were sold
as late as June of this year. Experts who have examined the
fruit claim that many of the
apples will run 100 per cent, in
color. Mr. Foster also grows all
kinds of small fruits and vegetables, which owing to their fine
quality have a ready sale. Two
crops of hay have been taken off
this year, which is more than
enough to feed about a dozen
head of stock. The potato crop
is the best in many years.
Mr. Foster is now engaged in
putting in a new irrigating
system, bringing the water from
Moon lake, a distance of seven
miles. About three and a half
miles of four and six-inch pipe
will be laid. When this work has
been completed, Mr. Foster will
have one of the most up-to-date
fruit farms in the province. The
dwelling house and stables are all
very comfortable.
Mrs. Foster also takes a great
interest in the work and can pack
a box of apples almost as well as
the expert packers.
LOOAL  ITEMS   OF INTEREST
Mrs. H. Coleman left for Van-1
couver on Tuesday morning.
A wolverine was seen on the
P.G.E. railway tracks at Seton
lake last Saturday.
There was a heavy frost at
Clinton on the 12th inst. and the
potato stalks were all flattened to
the ground.
Mr. W. W. Jones, the Bridge
River express and mail carrier,
spent a few day at the coast this
week.
Road work has been stopped on
the North Fork, but will be continued for a short time on the
upper part of Bridge River.
It was reported that an Indian
had been held up and robbed on
the road to the lake this week,
but the story lacks confirmation.
Earl Bishop, of the 127-Mile
House, Cariboo road, is visiting
Mr. W. B. French in town. He
is here to meet his brother Ray,
who is expected home from the
front shortly.
Mr. S. S. Idiens, who has been
teller in the bank of B.N. A. here
for o\ er a year, has resigned, and
will leave for Victoria next week,
where he will enlistfor overseas
service.
Posters are out announcing the
big race meet at Clinton on

who have been spending their
holidays at Craig Lodge.
Mr. H. D. Sheldon and sons, of
Detroit, who have been fishing
and hunting big game on Gun
creek during the past six weeks,
arrived in town this week. Mr.

getting four big horn sheep and
eight goats. The fishing was all
that could be desired.
Rev. Father E, C. Chirouse, the
veteran missionary, who has been
visiting the Pemberton and, Lillooet reserves during the past
week, left for Clinton Monday
night. Father Chirouse was
in charge of the missions in this
district some years ago, and he
feels like a young man again at
the idea of going through his
former field of labor.
A meeting of the members of
the Returned Soldiers' Employment Committee was held in the
court house on Wednesday evening last. The acting secretary
read the minutes of the last meeting, which were adopted. Sundry
correspondence was also read and
the secretary was instructed to
write to the various employers of
labor in the district, both agricultural and mining, and ascertain
what employment of a permanent
nature it would be in their
power to offer to returned soldiers. Mr. S. Gibbs was in the
chair.    	
FINE SAMPLES OF ORE
back a number of fine samples of
gray copper and chalco pyrite
ores, which are on exhibition in
the window of the Lillooet restaurant. Mr. Russell states that
the deposits are very large, the
chalco pyrite deposit being 350
feet wide and about 600 feet long,
some of the ore running as high
as 22 per cent, in copper. Seven
different kinds of ore have been
taken out of the valley within a
radius of two or three miles. The
samples are said to be about the
best ever shown in Lillooet. Mr.
J. M. Mackinnon, of Vancouver,
is interested in the property and
it is the intention of the owners
to commence development work
on a large scale in the near future.

OPPOSITION NEEDED.
The soldiers' vote will not
materially alter the fact that
a Liberal government has
been elected in British Col- j
umbia. It may change a few
seats, and it is to be hoped it j
will, for the latest figures
would indicate that the Liberals will have over forty
seats out of a total of forty-
seven in the new house.        j
Several conclusions are j
suggested as a result of j
Thursday's voting. One is
that no matter what side
British Columbia takes it
takes it with great unanimity. When ic v as Tory in the
legislature it was nearly all
Tory. When it was Grit in
the Dominion house it was
all Grit. Then it switched
and now it is all Tory.
Thursday it switched from
an almost unanimous Tory
government to a Grit one.
It is to be hoped, however,
that there will be keen critics
and aggressive representatives in the opposition column. An opposition fills a
role in the government of a
coantry no less important
than the part played by the
party in power. One is, or
should be, the natural complement of the other. Not
only is it necessary to the
welfare of the country that
there should be a vigilant,
active body on the left of the
speaker, but it is desirable
in the interests of the government members themselves. The fire of an opposition develops their talents,
enlarges their experience and
rounds them out as public
men. This, in turn, redounds
to the advantage of the ministers, for it relieves them of
a great amount of legislative
detail and provides the premier with ample reserves of
cabinet possibilities should
ministerial changes be desirable. Above all, it advances
the public interest.
•**•;
The Burrard Hotel
"Certain young men," says
the Winnipeg; Free Press, j
"have a constitutional objec-|
tion to take part in the present j
war as members of a Can-i
adian regiment on active;
service in Europe. They may j
deceive themselves with these
explanations, but they willl
not deceive the people of j
Canada. The constitutional
grounds upon which they refuse to serve are the grounds
of constitutional cowardice.
If the soil of Canada is ever
invaded, these young men
will be found where they are
now, under the barn. The
fighting will be done by Canadians who know that when
a fire is raging there is a better use for one's faculties
than trying to find out if
there are not technical reasons to justify a refusal to
take part in the dangerous
and dirty work of fighting
the flames. As a matter of
fact, our sons and brothers
who are fighting in Europe
are fighting in defence of
Canada just as truly .as if the
scene of action were on Canadian soil. It is merely our
good fortune that the actual
tide of war has not flowed
over the Canadian landscape,
canying with it ruin, rapine
and desolation."

CANADIAN PATRIOTIC FUND
So long as the war lasts so long
must the Patriotic Fund continue
to carry on its work. While our
countrymen are fighting for us at
the front we must not tire of doing of doing our duty at home.
By assisting the Patriotic Fund,
the Red Cross and other kindred
societies, we are enabled to give
some direct aid in the presecution
of the war, and we are also able
in this way to show that we are
appreciative of the great efforts
and sacrifices which are being
made on our behalf.
The second year of the Canadian Patriotic Fund is drawing
to its close, September being the
last month, and an urgent appeal
is being sent out throughout the
province to have all subscriptions
and donations promised promptly
paid, so that the year's receipts
may be totalled.
There are many subscribers in
the Lillooet district who have
promised various monthly amounts
who have failed to keep their
payments up to date, and the
committee of the Fund respectfully ask all those who are in arrears to forward their overdue
subscriptions to the Fund at Lillooet as soon as possible.
The Lillooet Fund has now two
families of dependents, and
throughout the province the
Patriotic Fund is assisting 6,000
families monthly.
"Keep the home fires burning"
by making sacrifices if necessary
in support of the Canadian
Patriotic Fund.
BRIDGE RIVER NOTES
(From a Correspondent.)
A 17-lb. brick of gold was sent
down from the Lorne mine to the
Bank of B.N.A., Lillooet, last
week. This is the third shipment
from this mine in the last couple
of month and there are tons of
gold still left in this property
only waiting to b^ dug out. This
mine has proved to be wonderfully rich and Mr. Noel, the owner,
is to be congratulated on his good
fortune.
The Lorne mill will be kept
running until late in the fall and
possibly all winter.
The owners of the Pioneer
mine are also making regular
shipments of gold to the coast.
They have b<u.?ht a new auto
truck, which will be used to carry
freight from the Mission to their
property.
A lot of development work is
being done on the various other
claims and the outlook is very
promising.
Mr. C. P. Dam spent a few-
days in Lillooet last week.
Mr. and Mrs. Noel intend to
spend the winter here and I ave
just built a very comfortable
home in which they have probably
one of the most unique fireplaces
in the world. It is built of rock
taken from the mine and gold
nuggets are to be seen sticking
out of the rock in many places.
Besides beiiig very artistic, it
will give a lot of comfort to the
owners during the long winter.
Messrs. Danny Hamilton and
Chas. Noel arrived back from
Lillooet this week.

PRAISE FOR FRANK GOT!
The following are extracts from
a letter received by Mr. A. W. A.
Phair from a ci.ptairi in the 102nd
Battalion :
France, Aug. 21, 1916.
Dear Mr. Phair,-I have something especial to convey to you
this evening. It is to make known
through you to his fellow native
British Columbians the  bravery
of Private Francis Gott.    He was
under my command in the front
line trenches at a spot in  France
well known as the scene of many
a bloody action in this war.     On
a certain Saturday afternoon we
were subjected  to  three and a
half hours of the fiercest bombardment.      "Jack   Johnsons,"
"whiz bangs," rifle fire and all
the rest of the terrible destructors of life came flying over in
clouds.    I cannot speak of our
casualties, of the effect of the
bombardment or of any  of our
operations,   nor   those    of    the
enemy, further thrin to say that
in earlier times the action would
have ranked with the  fiercest of
our famous   battles of  history.
Pte. Gott came under my personal observation.   In my tour from
end to end of the portion of the
trench allotted to me. I spoke to
him several  times,  and   I   was
proud to see how cool and collected he was.     I said to him,
"Well, Gott, do you like Lillooet
better than this place?" and he
laughingly replied that he "did
not like Lillooet half as well."
Lieut. Macdonald afterwards told
me that Gott had told him (during the action)  that if  "I had
known it was like this I would
have come sooner."   Such cheer-
iness when the prospect of immediate transition to heaven or
hell are exceedingly good is of
the greatest value, and stamp the
man who can so control his feelings as a really brave man.   It is
a great pleasure to me to be able
to speak of him in the highest
terms, and I am glad to say he
got through the action  without
hurt.
When boiling eggs wet the
shells thoroughly in cold water
before dropping them into the
boiling water and they will not
crack.
