Support your home paper and
help to give your own district a
genuine boost.
The Pacific Great Eastern railway bridge across the Fraser,
is expected to be completed by
the middle of next week.
We hear that the Eagle group
of mineral claims on the Lillooet
lake of which Mr, Keddy is chief
owner are looking up well. A
tunnel about 40 feet in length
has been run in on the property,
and the ore improves in value.
Some mining experts and engineers are expected to inspect the
properties this coming week.
Twelve powerful airships, claim
ed to be improvements over anything of the air-fighting type
ever floated, have been completed in England. These machines
are to attack German fortresses
and naval bases. According to
the English claim, the new type
of dirigible, have remedied the
defects of the Zeppelin, and have
vastly improved on the offensive
possibilities of the German craft.
The proofreader on a small
country daily was a woman of
great precision and extreme propriety. One day a reporter succeeded in getting into type an
item about "Willie Brown, the
by who was burned in the west
end by a live wire."
On the following day the reporter found on his desk a frigid
note asking "Which is the west
end of a boy?"
It took only an instant to reply,
"The end the son sets on, of
course."
Factory
A short, rather stout gentleman, in a soft hat and light grey
overcoat, has been the curiosity
of the town for the past few days.
Nobody recognizing in him the
well - known author, Mr. Pat.
Emery, of Australia.
Mr. Emery intends to write up
Lillooet, in book form, in the
near future, and is obtaining information and impressions for
that purpose. He is also interested in Dry placer mining, and
stated: "that he will probably
erect a factory for the manufacture of Australian Dry Placer
Mining Machines. The machines
to be sold i to the miners of the
district at practical cost."
Smitz is Captured
Arthur Smitz, who escaped a
few days ago from Constable W.
Matthews, by jumping the train
when about six miles from Squamish, has been re-captured in Vancouver.
Much credit is due Constable
Spiller, for, by his promptness
and forethought the prisoner was
retaken. Spiller, upon hearing
of the escape notified the bank
officials that Smitz had in his po-
session a certain check on the
Bank of B.N.A. and requested
that information be given if he
attempted to cash it. The prisoner eventually placed the check in
the Vancouver bank for collection
and he was told to call in a few
days. In the meantime the check
was sent here, Mr. Greig, manager of the bank of B.N. A., informed the police, and also notified the Bank officials at Vancouver. When Smitz culled a few
days later he received a pressing
invitation to become the guest of
the authorities, which distin-
guised position he now holds.
Arbour Day
Arbour Day in not abserved in
Canada to the extent which its
importance warrants.
British Columbia must ever
keep in mind her dependance upon her forests. With practically
85 per cent of her area suitable
only for forestry purposes, it is
essential that the value of trees
?nd their protection should be
thoroughly impressed upon Canadians.
The is no official recognition
given to the subject of Arbour
Day in B. C., although there seems
no doubt that public opinion favours its establishment as a holiday and its observance. The observance of Arbour Day should
be general throughout this country. There is need in every part
of Canada for the education and
instruction which Arbour Day
represents. The day should be
observed as a public holiday, at a
time most suited to the climatic
conditions of the locality. Public
recognition should be given to
Arbour Day, and the planting and
protection of shade trees, the
preparation of flower and vegetable gardens, and the thorough
cleaning up of homes and surroundings should be advocated as
special duties for the day.
Arbour Day has its justification
in the value of trees, from whatever point of view they may be
considered. Nothing contributes
so much to make the world a
pleasant place to live in as trees.
The true home feeling is not satisfied without the presence of the
trees, with their shelter and shade
their beauty ef form and leaf,
their blossom and fruit, their
varing shades with the passing of
the seasons, and their fullness of
colour in the autumn days. They
also afford homes and shelter for
our feathered friends—the birds
—during their annual visits to us,
There is nothing which will add
beauty and value to a home or
schoolhouse more than the presence of trees; there is likewise
nothing which adds more to the
comfort of the pedestrian than
shade trees on the roadside. The
way may be long and dusty, but
under the cool shade of the trees
relief is found.
It is hoped that steps will be
taken towards the institution of
Arbour Day, and that its observance will become general; that
the planting and care of trees
and shrubs around schoolhouses,
homes, public spaces and by roadsides may have the effect of developing a keener appreciation of
the value and beauty of trees;
and that in thus enlargening the
field of Arbour Day activities,
greater interest may be created
in the protection of our Canadian
forests from the reckless destruction by fire and the axe with
which they are threatened.
Death at Lillooet
Mr. Charles McCaffery, aged
35 years, freighter, who had been
ill for the past two months, passed away last Saturday evening.
The body was taken to the
Watkinson estate, on the Lytton
road, and interred on Tuesday
afternoon.
Charlie was well-khown thru-
out the district, he having resided here for the past ten years.
He leaves a widow and four small
children, to whom, the sympathy
of their many friends goes out in
this their time of bereavement. THE PROSPECTOR

The wildest efforts at romancing bv the Wolff Bureau of Berlin
have been far outdistanced by
the Turkish nuwpapers published
in Asia Minor, which receives
most of its news from the German news agency in Constantinople.
Terjman-i-Afkin, on December
6, published the following interesting telegram:— "The speech
delivered by his Islamic Majesty
William II, last week from the
throne set up in the old Chamber
of the French Parliament formed
an unforgettable record of his
deeds and prowess. Surrounded
by the men he had conquered, he
offered his hand to be kissed by
the ex - French deputies, who
were much moved by the magnanimity of his Islamic Majesty"
The news of the Kaiser's conversion to Islamism would probably come as as a surprise to most
of his subjects, as would also the
news, published in Djenideb-i-
Sharkeych, that the conquered
people of Belgium are rapidly being converted to Islamism and
are turning their churches into
mosques.
But perhaps the item of newjs
which would cause the most alarm
at Potsdam is the following, published in Hanumlhar Ghazetaseh:
— "The harem of his Islamic Ma-
Notice is hereby given that the Pacific
Great Eastern Railway Company of
Victoria, B.C. will apply for a licence

Gallons (Imperial) Per Day of water

The water will be diverted from Wells
Located Between High and Low Water
Marks About Eight Hundred (800) Feet
South of the North East Corner of Lot
Six Hundred and Seven (6o7) Lillooet
District, and will be used for Railway
purposes on the land described as the

This notice was posted on the ground

jesty William II. and those of his
officers are expected to arrive in
Constantinople at the beginning
of the spring. They will be escorted by ten of the most powerful British dreadnoughts captured
by the Germans."
After such revelations one
reads with interest, but without
surprise, that the 1st Turkish
Army Corps has been transported
from Constantinople by 25 German balloons to the scene of the
war, and that, according to a
wireless telegram from Amsterdam, the British Government has
sent 2,000 asses laden with gold
to the Kaiser to ransom London
from air raids.
