FAMILIES WERE DRIVEN
FROM HOMES BY FLOODS
Fernie, June 20.—The extent
of the flooded areas surrounding
this city tonight include, on this
side of the river, Fernie annex
extension and Fernie annex. The
residents in the northern part of.
the extension subdivision, numbering about 50 families, have
been dri ven from their homes, as
the locality is totally flooded.
Many adjoining sections are utterly inaccessible. The approach
from the city to the Fairy Greek
bridge, carrying the main water
supply, is flooded by ten feet of
water covering the streets and
property adjacent "thereto. From
there westerly, parallel with the
Elk River, a strip six blocks wide
by more than one mile in length,
extending to Fernie annex, is untenable, and hundreds of houses
are submerged to the extent that
the water has reached the lower
storey windows.
The streets in this vicinity are
running rivers. The inhabitants
of all that portion have been
moved uptown, and many others
near the flooded localities are
hurriedly vacating.
102ND BATTALION AT OTTAWA
Ottawa, June 16. —Two western
regiments, the 65th of Saskatoon,
and the 102nd of Northern British Columbia, were inspected here
this morning by His Royal Highness the Duke of Connaught and
Sir Sam Hughes. As the weather was wet the inspection took
place at the Central railway
station. Sir Robert Borden. Hon.
Martin Burrell and Mr. H. S.
Clements, member for Comox -
Atlin, who accompanied the 102nd
Battalion to the east, were
present.
' Subsequent to the inspection,
His Royal Highness the Duke of
Connaught addressed the officers
of the two regiments, complimenting them on the fine appearance of the men and expressing
the conviction that, like other
regiments from the west, they
would give a good account of
themselves at the front. The
men in uniform from the west
included a number of former residents of these districts and many
relatives were at the station.
HEAVY LOSSES BY FRENCH
The French losses around Verdun in killed and wounded amount
to approximately 165,000 to date.
These losses have occurred on a
front which is not more than 13
miles in length.
PROVINCIAL AND GENERAL NEWS
Robert Griffith, aged 40, and
Stewart Burton, aged 22, were
drowned in the north arm of
Burrard Inlet on Sunday last.
Wm. English of Kaslo recently
bought 17 heavy draught horses
in Princeton. He paid $250 each
for some of the equines.
With a Dodge car, Roy Connor
recently made the trip from Pen-
tiction to Phoenix, 101 miles, in
4 hours and 20 minutes.
Geo. Belleau, of Vancouver,
formerly connected with the
commercial telegraph at Ashcroft, died on Tuesday of last
week.
The fire rangers in the Quesnel
district are having an extremely
busy time at present.
LIBERALS RETURNED
AGAIN IN NOVA SCOTIA
Halifax, June 20.-The Liberals were returned to power in the
Nova Scotia legislature today.
The party of Hon. G. H. Murray,
who has held the premiership for
20 years, Was again given the
reins of government with an increased representation. Thirty-
one Liberals and 12 Conservatives
were elected from the 43 constituencies in the province. Hon.
C. E. Tanner, Pictou, leader of
the Conservative opposition, was
defeated, the Liberals securing
all three seats in that county.
In the last House, which was
made up of 38 members, there
were 25 Liberals.
The new leader of the opposition in Nova Scotia will probably
be Mr. Hector Mclnnes, who has
been returned for Halifax with
four Liberal colleagues. He is
one of the leaders of the provincial bar, and an able man of
business.

Last week Messrs. J. B. Perk-
ius and A. Hautier, of Lytton,
left for their molybdenite mine
on Texas Creek. They were accompanied by a Swede, who had
been hired by Mr. Perkins to assist in the work of getting the
mine in shape for inspection.
Each carried a heavy pack and
they left part of their supplies at
different camps along trie road,
as the trail was in bad condition.
Arriving at the last camp before
getting to the end of the journey
Messrs. Perkins and Hautier sent
the Swede back for the provisions
left behind, while they went on
to the mine. On their arrival back
at the camp they found that the
fair-haired gentleman had not
returned and thinking he had
met with an accident, they started to look for him. As they
passed each*camp they found that
the groceries, etc., had disappeared, but could get no trace of the
missing man. The recent warm
weather had melted the snow on
the mountains and raised the
water to such an extent that they
had to fall about a dozen big
trees across the creek in order to
get through, several times having
very narrow escapes. Finally
arriving at the Dickey ranch they
made enquiries as to whether
that gentleman had seen the
much looked for man and were
informed that a person answering the description given had
passed there the day before,
carrying a large pack. The mining men came on to town and
told their troubles to the policeman, who has so far been unable
to locate the man wanted. Besides losing a lot of valuable time,
Messrs. Perking and Hautier are
out $16 worth of groceries and
$21 in cash, the money being advanced to the Swede before leaving here. Mr. Perkins says he bane
yus wants to see his man for a
minute to shake hands with him,
and we hope to be on hand when
the meeting takes place.
Away np in the north, between
the 150 and Qnesnel, where they
depend a great deal on rain for
irrigation, it is reported that the
weather is exceptionally dry and.

River yesterday, where he will
spend three weeks gathering data

A TRIP UP MT. McLEAN
Last Sunday morning at 3
o'clock, while most of Lillooet's
citizens were still wrapped in
sleep, Miss Wiegand, Mrs. Geo.
P. Weir, Mr. "Artie" Phair and
the editor of The Prospector
started from Lillooet on a trip to
the top of Mt. McLean. The
members of the party, with the
exception of Mr. Phair, who preferred to walk, were mounted on
sure-footed cay uses. A stop was
made for breakfast at 6 o'clock
at a height of 4,800 feet, and
after spending a couple of hours
the pleasant journey was resumed. At an altitude of over 7,000 ft.
snow was encountered to such an
extent that the horses had to be
left behind, while tha explorers
proceeded on foot. The depth of
the snow was such that the members of the party finally gave up
the idea of trying to get to the
top, but an attempt will again be
made later on this summer. However, they were up high enough
to be able to see this wonderful
country for miles around. Carson's ranch at Pavilion and the
Half-Way house were points of
interest clearly visible to the naked eye. Unfortunately rain commenced to fall at this time, which
marred the pleasure of the trip
considerably. Beautiful flowers
are in bloom right up to the snow
line and horses were peacefully
grazing on nearby mounatin sides,
the whole scene being restful and
charming. The return journey
was made without mishap and,
despite the rain, was thoroughly
enjoyed. Mr. Phair knows every
trail and the name of almost every
wild flower and is a most interesting guide.
If tourists only knew what they
are missing by not visiting Lillooet and scaling some of our
magnificent mountains, they
would come in thousands. This
matter should betaken up by the
citizens of Lillooet and the P. G.
E. Railway Co. should be asked
to assist in making known to the
outside world the wonderful scenery and mountains in this district.

Foresight and Character.
It has often occurred to us
that the world suffers tremendous loss through its
own indifference or Tack of
judgment in its selection of
the right material for public
use. Men aspiring to public
positions, often to positions
of very great trust and responsibility, are selected because of their eloquence, or
because of their wealth, or
because of their status in
society, or because of their
political affiliations, or because of a combination of
some or of all of these considerations. And what is the
consequence? Our public
service, Dominion, Provincial
and Municipal, though having
in the ranks of each a multitude of as good men as can
be found in the world, has
entirely too many misfits,
and those misfits through
their shameless grafting
tendencies are responsible for
the unsettled conditions of
our public life today.
How is it that great corporations like the C.P.R.. the
G.N.R., theG.T.R. and others have no such disturbing
factors, or at least have no
factors sufficiently disturbing
as to cause alarm either to
the service or the country ?
Simply because their methods of selecting men for responsible positions are entirely different. Sentiment is
never allowed to interfere.
No influence in the country
whether of church or nationality, or secret society, or
politics, is sufficiently strong
to get the wrong man in the
right place. These corporations have what might be
called an omniscient eye on
the whole service and when
a prominent official drops out
by death or otherwise they
have only to look at their
books to pick out instantly
the best man in the ranks
below, and he gets the job.
A man may have an intimate
knowledge of the duties of
the higher position, but that
is only one factor, while three
are called for. In addition
to this he must have a good
character, so that he may be
trusted, and he must have
foresight, so as to be able to
judge fairly well as to what
is likely to happen under certain conditions.
Can the reader think of any
great railway man who has
risen to eminence without
these qualifications ? The
late J. J. Hill had them, so
had Sir William Whyte, so
has Sir William Van Home
and so has Lord Shaughnessy.
We have all read recently
much about the late J. J.
Hill, and how he rose from a
poor boy earning fifty cents
a day to a place among the
great men of the world. He
rose because he loved his
work, whether it was of the
hand or the head, because
his conscience was ever clean
and because his foresight
was so penetrating that to
the ordniary man it often
appeared as if inspired.
In the new civilization
which we hope to see after
the war there will be a shaking up and old methods will
be discarded. The eloquent
tongue, the dress suit, the
polished manner, and the
bulging purse will still be in
evidence, but if a man aspires
to a high position, whether it
be as mayor of a city or
premier of a province, he
must give evidence that he
understands his prospective
duties, that his character,
public and private, is stain-
ess and that he has sufficient
foresight to forestall disaster
to the trust reposed in him.
Then shall we have true Democracy with an aristocracy
of our own consisting of
wealth, intelligence and character from which we can
draw officials and thus avoid
all misfits in the public life
of the country.

UNCLE WALT, POET PHILOSOPHER
Tell me not, with mournful
croakings, that this life is but
a dream, for the guy is only
joking who advances such a
theme. All will come for
which thou yearnedest, all
the good things will arrive, if
you'll only do the durnedest
while you're here on earth,
alive. In this world's broad
field of battle,"in the bivouac
of life, hump around and
make things rattle, hustle for
your kids and wife. Not enjoyment and not trouble is
our destined end, ay tank,
but to put the shining rouble
safely in the village bank.
Lives of rich men all remind
us we may well be shining
marks, and departing leave
behind us pickings for the
legal sharks. Pickings that
some court and jury will distribute here and there, while
our orphans, in a fury, draw
a blank and paw the air. Let
us then be saving twenty
millions or the like, so the
lawyers will have plenty
when it comes our time to
hike. Let us practice self
denial, so that on a future
day, when the case comes up
for trial, courts may find the
business pay.

Please mention the Prospector when patronizing the above firm THE  LILLOOET  PROSPECTOR
SIR RICHARD McBRIDE, K.C.M.G.
(From the Western Methodist
Record.)
Now that Sir Richard McBride
is no longer a figure in British
Columbia politics, it ought to be
possible for one to express an appreciation of his personality without the danger of being suspected of ulterior—not to say sinister
—motives. We have little interest in his politics, one way or the
other just now, but we venture
to suggest that when time allows
an impartial history of the development of this province to be
written, the name of Richard
McBride will hold a conspicuous
place. For the time being his
party friends may very naturally
deal too much in superlative, and
his party foes vastly too much in
derogative, but when we can
stand aside, forgetting these influences and dispassionately survey his place as a public man
amongst us, we are bound to admit that his personality looms
large, and his work important
and far-reaching.
In the first place, he was the
first native son to become British
Columbia's premier, and he reached that distinction at the remarkably early age of 33. He found
the affairs of the country in a
hopeless muddle, and its credit at
the lowest ebb. He brought
harmony to such an extent that
he won four successive general
elections with an ever-increasing
majority, until his party occupied
all but'two of the seats of the Legislature, then he resigned of his
own volition, for personal reasons,
including the strain on his health
—having held the premiership
for upwards of twelve years.
The outstanding feature of his
policy as reviewed in the years to
come, will appear, after the restoration of the provincial credit,
to be the opening up of the province by railway systems and
great highways, thus making its
resources available and inducing
settlement. His methods in securing this may or may not have
been the wisest, and they were
severely criticised by party op
ponents, but they certainly met
popular endorsement, as was
shown by the overwhelming victories his own party received at
the polls. It has, at any rate,
given the province great lines of
communication and facilities for
trade which will, during the next
phase of our history, be the more
truly appreciated.
Sir Richard's sympathies, however, have always shown a strong
imperial tendency. London, the
heart of the Empire, has iured
him more and more, and while he
has unsurpassed qualifications for
the Agent-Generalship, which he
has gone to assume, residence in
London will be altogether congenial to him, and will afford far
closer touch with Empire problems, which so strongly appeal to
his imagination.
Those who know Sir Richard
personally and intimately will testify to his large-heartedness and
sympathy. Few outside his circle
would realize his generosity to
those in need. No genuine appeal could be made to him in
.vain, and busy, as he always was,
his time was always at the disposal of those who sought him in
trouble. Though not much of a
churchman, he was a great admirer of Methodism, and of many
of her broadminded leading men.
His personal popularity was
greatest where he was best
known, as well attested by .the
fine demonstration accorded him
on the day he left the city for
his new field of lai^or. and nothing but the best of good wishes
will follow him.

NEW KIND OF DEER
HAS LONG BLACK TAIL
Cariosity of. Fauna of Lillooet
Country—Game Department
to Restock Mainland.
 •♦.-	
(News-Advertiser, June 17.)
The Provincial Game Warden
has returned from his trip to the
Lillooet district and yesterday in
conversation with a representative of The News-Advertiser told
of the discovery of a deer the
like of which he had not thought
could have been found in the
province.
"I had heard from time to
time," he said, "about deer up
there in certain parts of the district which it was said were quite
different from any other deer. I
thought that I wodld like to take
a look at them if they existed. As
a matter of fact I was very sceptical as to there being anything
different in the way of deer. As
it turned out I was wrong. There
is something there quite different
to anything I have ever seen before. I saw two deer from a
short distance—they were not
more than 25 yards away—totally
different to any deer I hi.d ever
known. The most peculiar feature about them was the tail. It
was quite as long as the white
tailed deer, but it was black. As
far as we could see there was not
any white about it, not even
underneath.
"I was accompanied on my trip
by the deputy game warden, who
was with me when the deer was
sighted. The tail was the first
thing that attracted our attention. As soon as they came in
sight the deputy said, "Good
heavens, look at that deer's tail!
Did you ever see anything like
that before?"
"I do not think they are a separate species, but until some are
killed and brought in for examination we cannot tell. Both the
deer we saw were does and I
could not shoot them even for
scientific purposes at this time of
year. I think if we can get some
specimens we will find they are a
cross between the mule and the
coast deer.
"I have hunted in the province
for about 27 years, practically all
over the province, and I can say
I have never come across anything of the sort. Captain Mar-
tain was there last spring hunting and he is pretty familiar with
the deer of this province, but as
soon as he came back from the
trip he told me about these particular animals. He said he had
seen a number of them. He was
accompanied by Frank Gott. one
of the most noted guides in the
province, and who is now on his
way to hunt the Germans with
the 102nd Battalion."
The provincial game warden,
talking of his trip generally, said
that he had visited the district as
there was an intention to put
some wapiti in the locality. Previously the wapiti used to be close
to Vancouver. For some reason,
of which the department was not
certain, though there were many
theories, the wapiti disappeared
very nearly from all over the
mainland. Several years ago the
department got a few head, purchased in the United States, and
had since been breeding them in
captivity with a view to restocking the mainland. Now the department was beginning to get
more than it had room for and
will turn out a few in the Lillooet
district. A start in this direction
will be made next spring, and the
chief warden desired to get an
idea in plenty of time as to the
best places to put them when the
time should come.
