LILLOOET,   B. C., FRIDAY, JUNE 19, 1914.
$2 PER YEAR
Lillooet to Celebrate
The sports committee are making great preparations these days
to fittingly celebrate Dominion
Day by holding a two days sports
on July 1 and 2. There will be
about a thousand dollars worth
of prizes given for the various
events which comprise, horse
racing, base ball, football, athletic events for young and old of
both sexes, and will wind up
with grand ball on the evening
of July 2nd. Come and spend a
good two days' sportin our midst.
LOCAL AND GENERAL ITEMS.
T. Rigg was in town this week
from the Horse Shoe Bend. He
says they have been using test
drills and are satisfied with the
results.
Dan Hamilton was in from his
mineral claim adjoining the Broken Hill mine, and says that he
has got a good showing on his
property. He returned the following day saying that he was
too busy to stay longer.
No Fruit
It would be a good thing if
more care was taken on Pemberton reserve with regard to the
insect pests. Owing to gross
neglect there will be practically
no fruit on the reserve this year,
caterpillers have had unmolested
control, with the result above
mentioned. Something snould be
done to see that this does not occur again, especially as there is
the possibility of these pests migrating and becoming a general
nuisance.
Whether music attracts these
insects or not we do not know,
but the priest reports having
killed thousands on the church
steps and the close vicinity.
Clinton Hotel Addition
The new improvements and
extensions of the Clinton hotel
are well under way.
The old section, containing the
ladies sitting room and several
bed rooms, has been pulled down
and the excavations made for the
new wing, which will be in two
stories, containing sitting rooms
and bed rooms. The Ulstein
Brothers have the contract.
Two Weddings
Some lively times are reported
to have taken place on the Indian
reserve recently. During the
past week Rev. Father E. C.
Bellott has joined together two
happy couples. The first being
Willie Larochelle and Harriett
Edwards of Pavilion, this happy
couple have staked a homestead
in the hills. Last, but not least,
Henry Albert and Sarah Paul
of the Fountain ranch were joined
together. General rejoicing took
place at the close of both.cer-
monies.
There is to be a wedding at the
Portage in the course of a few
days—lucky fellow.
Dr. H. A. Christie left this
week for Vancouver to attend
the Board of Health convention
there.

He reports the crops coming
along in the best of style and
that everything in general is
looking fine.
Tom Brett, one of the oldtimers
in Lillooet district, arrived in
town from the coast this week.
Tom says that he is only visiting
old acquaintances here—but be
is wearing one of those expressions which betokens that
something is on foot, but is not
far enough ahead for publicity.
A. W. Johnstone of Johnstone
Bros, dry goods merchants of
Vancouver, was in town this
week interviewing the local business men. He came instead of
Salesmen Sayers, who is in the
Vancouver hospital suffering with
concussion of the brain, he having had the misfortune to slip off
a tram car in Vancouver. Mr.
Johnstone was accompanied by
E. Ross.
A very pleasant time was spent
last Sunday by a party Strawberry picnicers. They left town
in three autos in the early morning, arriving at the Dickey ranch,
the scene of action, without any
thing happening to mar the run.
The party did not return until
the evening, having spent a
J general good day.
Among the many visitors to
town this week were, Dr. Wool-
ard, Dr. E. H. Bennett, F. F.
Smith, J. R. Archibald, all of
Kamloops, also Dr. Wightman
with Mrs. Wightman and child
from Ashcroft. Dr. Wightman
and Dr. Bennett are old college
chums of Dr. J. A. Asselstine,
resident doctor at the Lillooet
hospital. The party, who came
in by auto, visited all places of
interest in Lillooet and vicinity
and expressed themselves as being agreeably surprised with the
favorable conditions prevailing
here both climatic and otherwise.
C. L. Copp returned from the
mines this week en route for the
coast.
Stewart Henderson is a visitor
in town this week and is a very
busy man, looking after his business interests here.
Greece and Turkey are at it

alright.

City Constable J. M. Allen of
Kamloops, was shot dead at 2.30
on  the morning of June 13th.
He had gone to examine some
deserted Chinese shacks which
were often frequented by tramps,
Apparently just as he sought to
enter one of these he was met by
the bullet which killed him.
Con. McCury, who accompanied
Allen,   was   searching   another
shack, and on returning to where
he left Allen found the man dying.   A freight train was passing down the street slowly at the
time.    Twenty-three tramps a-
board her were arrested at Wal-
hachin,  and will be brought to
Kamloops.    Police  and  special
posses of mounted men are scouring the country, and all trains
being searched. Allen joined the
force October last.    There were
two  men  named Allen on the
force, the one killed being John
Mellis Allen.
The jury returned the following
verdict:
We your jury empanneled to
enquire into the death of John
M. Allen do find from the evidence produced that the said J.
Allen met his death while in
discharge of his duties as a
police officer in a small shack in
Main street, Kamloops, known
as the old isolated hospital, on
the morning of Saturday June 13,
1914, at or about the hour of two
thirty o'clock, from wounds afflicted by the bullets fired from
a thirty-eight calibre automatic
gun in the hands of a person or
persons unknown.
It is understood that the city
will offer a substantial reward
for the capture of the murder.
No further developements have
occurred in the case although a
large number of men have been
arrested on suspicion. THE PROSPECTOR

Exhibitions
Education is the principal object of exhibitions. The commercial man is educated in the
best means of developing the
business of the country. Thru
the exhibition buyers and sellers
are brought into direct touch with
one another over the exhibits.
The seller is educated in the requirements of the purchaser, and
the purchaser is educated in the
advantages of the improved article he is in need of. The inventor is brought into direct!
touch with the mechanical world;
he is educated in the requirements of advanced science, he
not only teaches his own ideas
but he learns how and in what
way to improve his ideas. The
stock breeder learns from the
exhibits before him how to improve his herd and the best
strain of stock to secure for his
purpose. The farmer learns
through the exhibits of farm
produce the results of scientific
agriculture, and learns that farming is the application of brain as
well as sinew. The house wife
learns, the school boy, the school
girl, old and young learn much
from practical observation of the
exhibits. The exhibition is a
great public school, the whole of
the people are the scholars, the
exhibitors are the teachers. The
gieat lessons that are ii culcated
are thrift, industry, economy,
perfection, advancement and not
least the love of the beautiful in
nature, art and science. Add to
these lessons that of pride in
one's country, public spirit and
loyalty to local and domestic attachments, and it will not be
denied that our exhibitions hold
a place together with our educational institutions, colleges and
universities.

Water Notice
It is somewhat trying to ones
ingenuity when perusing the
columns of the Vancouver papers
to understand why so much time
and space should be given to a
question, whose answer is immediately apparent to any casual
and practical obser/er. As every
one very well knows the economic conditions of the country are
not at present such as will stand
any great influx of immigrants,
whether they are Hindus or
otherwise. A glance at the overstocked labor market will easily
bear this cut. "They are our
brother—have they not fought
for the King?" is the cry very
often heard. This all sounds very
well, but observe again the large
ranks of unemployed and you'll
see some more of our "brothers"
— white at that—and not few in
number, who are in sore need of
work. When have we ever seen
such eloquent editorials and such
long-winded articles on behalf of
the unemployed Canadian citizens? never! It would seem that
the industrial conditions of the
country should be the first con-

STEPHEN & J. RETASKET. THE PROSPECTOR
Will Not Work on
The Sabbath Day
Revelstoke, June 11 - T. R.
Cummins left yesterday for Dow-
nie Creek. In the Big Bend he
has gangs surveying 302 timber
limits for Pennsylvania people on
which the owners are paying
$35,000 annually in taxes.
No trace has yet been found of
the relatives of Charles Elliott, a
member of the Christie & Dawson surveying party, who was
recently drowned at Downie Ck.
A Mrs. Hodges of 821 Sheridan
avenue, Chicago, has written to
Postmaster Young asking whether the name of the dead man is
Elliott or Ellicott, and it is hoped
that some clue may be obtained
from her.
Mr. Cummins says that the
surveyors, who were reckless at
first in crossing streams, are now
much more careful. When they
first went into the Big Bend they
agreed to work on Sundays, and
only rest on wet days, but since
Elliott was drowned on Sunday
they have decided not to work
on Sundays, regarding his death
as a bad omen.

Wireless Waves are
Used to Locate Ore
Among the Liverpool survivors
who reached home last week was
William Clark, who has had the
terrible experience of passing
through two of the greatest sea
tragedies known. He was fireman on the Titanic and fullfilled
the same duty on the Empress of
Ireland. His first thought when
they struck, he said, went back
to those terrible scenes on the
Titanic. It was his first voyage
on the Empress and of course on
the Titanic, which was her maiden trip. He added: "There is a
sort of superstition among sailors
and I believe it applies on land as
well, that the third time is fatal,
but that does not worry me. I'm
going back to Liverpool to find a
job on another steamer."
Clark said that he saw none of
the crew neglecting their duty or
who was not trying to save
others immediately the great
plumge came. —News.
Germany, June 9.—The society
for investigating the Internal
structure of the earth yesterday
declared it has discovered by
wireless telegraphy subterranean
springs and ore deposits. It
states that it also has ascertained
their depth by the use of electical
waves applied according to the
method invented by Prof. Leim-
bach of this city.
Prof Leimbach on March 23,
1911, used wireless telegraphy
for underground communication
between the Potash mines in the
northern Harz Mountains when
he sent messages a distance of
nearly a mile and a half at a
level of 1000 feet below the surface.
