AWAIT COMPLETION
OF P. G. E. RAILWAY
Mr. J. A. Evans, of Clairmont,
which is 450 miles north of Edmonton, is in Vancouver on business, and in an interview with a
representative of the Province
stated that the people of the
Peace River country are eagerly
awaiting the completion of the
P. G. E. railway.    He said :
"It is an unfortunate thing
that the new Pacific Great Eastern railway has not been pushed
along. We are looking forward
to its completion; in fact the
people are coming into that country on the strength largely of
getting transportation facilities.
We are obliged in the purchase
of British Columbia lumber to
pay enormous freights and to
have it hauled over a very circuitous route in order to land it at
Grande Prairie. Thecompletion
of the Pacific Great Eastern will
be a great boon to the whole
Peace River district and will
mean that practically all the trade
arising there will come to Vancouver.
"Land is being rapidly taken
up," continued the northerner,
"but there remains within a few
miles of the railway and right
along the proposed route of the
Pacific Great Eastern in British
Columbia hundreds of thousands
of acres of farm lands which may
be had for the staking and payment of the usual, small homestead fee. The settlers who
went in there four and five years
ago have all made good and are
prospering. They had to live the
simple life, but now with the
opening up of the railways they
are reaping their reward. Opportunities on the British Columbia side of the line are similar to
those which existed in our district before the Edmonton &
Dunvegan road was built. And
people who go into the Pouce
Coupee will find themselves in
clover when the Pacific Great
Eastern railway has been completed throughout its entire
length and trains are being operated from the coast to Grand
Prairie and on over the McArthur
line to Edmonton."
WHEAT WILL SOAR
Montreal, Aug. 23. —"I have
come to the conclusion that if we
have 165 million bushels of wheat
this year in the three Canadian
Northwest provinces, that is all
that can be expected," said Jas.
Carruthers, a prominent grain
merchant who returned today
from a five weeks' trip through
the Canadian wheat belt and to
the Pacific coast.
"There is no doubt that Manitoba will raise only about half the
crop it did last year.
There shou Id be a carry over of
about 50,000,000 bushels of old
wheat this year, and this will
help to make up the deficiency."
In an address to the Epworth
League and Baptist Young Peo-
Kle's Union in Seattle recently,
layor Hiram Gill stated that
many of the supposedly "good
people", among them a number
who were regarded as prominent
citizens, had gone into the "bootlegging" business. The profits
which resulted from the illicit
sale of liquor appeared to be so
great that they could not withstand the temptation.

Returned Soldiers Aid Commission advising the citizens-of Lillooet to form a local committee to
deal with the problems of securing positions and otherwise assisting soldiers who were recruited in this district.
Mr. J. R. Mclntyre expressed
the opinion that the people likely
to take the most interest in this
work are the fathers and relatives of the soldiers and suggested that they head the committee. His suggestion was
agreed to. He also objected to
the word "aid" in the name of
the commission, but no one present was able to think of a word
that would be more suitable.*
On motion of Mr. W. Adams,
seconded by Mr. R. Webster, Mr.
S. Gibbs was elected permanent
chairman/and the following men
were appointed to the committee,
with/power to add to their number : \ Messrs. Burkholder, Eagleson, Phair, Foster, Craig, Copeland, Means, Moule, Carson, Hambrook, Duguid, Adams, Prosser,

BRIDGE RIVER NOTES
(From a Correspondent.)
This country is undergoing
quite a change. The majority of
the kickers have kicked themselves out of this part, and the
rest of the old-timers are very
busy kicking out the real yellow
metal.
The Pioneer people are running
night and day shifts and everything seems to be working
smoothly.
The Coronation mill is running
in high grade ore.
Mr. B. J. Perry and Mr. and
Mrs. CathcTt left for the coast
on Saturday morning.
Under the efficient management of Mr. A. F. Noel, the
Lorne mill has been running continuously 24 hours a day, with
exceedingly good results.
Mr. M. R. Eagleson has changed the appearance of his home on
Cadwallader creek. Mark seems
to think it is one of the finest
places to spend the summer
months. He has a showing of
fine milling ore a short distance
from his house.
. The Golden Dream Mining Co.
are increasing their force of men,
as is also Mr. D. C. Paxton.
It will be a surprise to most
people when they read the government report at the end of the
year and learn the amount of gold
that has been shipped out of the
Bridge River district. THE  LILLOOET   PROSPECTOR

A SANE SABBATH.
The wise man said : "The
fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom." There
willsurely be a great readjustment of social conditions
after the war. People are
ready for changes now who
would not have patience to
hear them mentionei two
years ago. We are told by
one who was listening that a
statement was made from a
pulpit in New Westminster
about two months ago that
prepares the way for many
things. The clergyman was
not a resident, but a missionary who travelled much and
had his finger fairly well on
the religious pulse of the
world. He opened his discourse thus : "My Christian
friends, there is no longer
any quarrel between Christian churches of different
creeds. The struggle today
is between Christianity and
Infidelity, between Belief and
Unbelief." What a glorious
message, though long delayed. May we h >pe that these
words will speed round and
round the world, gathering
strength as they go.
Because of divergent views
heretofore among Christian
denominations as to how the
Sabbath should be kept,
Christian influence has been
only slightly felt in shaping
the conduct of the masses in
many places, such, for instance, as the United States.
Invoking the law to enforce
a moral idea has never proved
successful. This is seldom
done except in places where
the idea has considerable
support, and it seems to us
that even in such places a
course of education on moral
lines would have better results. To try to enforce by
law a strict observance of
the Sabbath in communities
where the religious sentiment
is so weak as to command no
respect is a suicidal policy.
The masses are becoming
more estranged day by day
from the leaders of religious
thought for the simple reason
that they consider those
leaders are not in touch or
feeling with their temporal
asperations. To regain their
confidence those leaders will
have to show that they sympathize with the working
classes and the poor, who
consider themselves entitled
to some enjoyments and
pleasures of life as well as
the rich. Here is a chance
to regain lost ground. Let
the leaders of religious life
get together and see if they
cannot formulate a plan that
will be acceptable to God and
yet allow such pleasures and
recreations as the toiler may
need to counterbalance the
daily strain of labour.
Tpe Pacific Great Eastern
Railway.
Attacks on the government
in connection with the Pacific Great Eastern railway are
based upon a technicality.
The question is whether the
McBride government should
have released, for construction purposes, certain proceeds of the company's guaranteed bonds, which lay in
the bank about two years
ago. The Liberals contend
the money should not have
been released because the
contractors had not raised
sufficient funds to complete
the road to Prince George.
The government points to
favorable results as evidence
that the McBride govern*
ment followed the only businesslike course that was open.
At the time the question
arose only 15 miles had been
built, the consequences of
releasing the money are that
the railway is in operation
for 170 miles and producing
revenue and that a large part
of the work to Prince George
has been completed. Employment was given to 7,000
men when unemployment
was at the breadline stage at
the coast, the province saved
over $2,000,000 it would have
been called upon to pay in interest and provincial credit
was preserved. The total
expenditure from guaranteed
bonds is $18,000,000, and
Foley, Welch & Stewart have
personally put $9,000,000 into the undertaking. There
was everything to lose by
leaving the money idle in the
bank. A great deal has been
gained by releasing it - Nelson News.

CANADIAN PRISONERS
ARE BADLY CARED FOR
Ottawa, Aug. 22. - The following letter to the Ottawa Women's
Canadian Club from an exchanged prisoner, now in Switzerland,
shows how urgent it is to keep
up work of relief.
"Nothing can describe Ihe kind
of food we have been getting
since last January," he writes.
"Instead of rice and peas, we
were given musty barley and one
loaf of bread for every ten men
— bread which was made of potatoes, bran and birch sawdust.
We also had a sort of porridge
which we called reinforced con
crete. It was just like eating
sand. They used to give us
flour made of corn and acorns,
and instead of meat, col in the
last stage, herrings and a kind
of blood pudding which we called
"Verdun Patty.'
"The last days I spent in prison
we each had only two potatoes,
often rotten, and a few carrots
floating in hot water.
"Had it not been for the parcels sent us we would have been
dead long ago."
