Stait  Made  Early  This  Week to   Open   Blockaded
Sections—Good News for the People
of Lillooet.
Ring the bells and blow the
trumpets ! L«t joy be unconfin-
ed! The P. G. E. railway officials at Vancouver have announced that trains will be
operating between Lillooet and
Squamish within two weeks. This
will be welcome news for the
long-suffering people in this part
of the country, and is almost
enough to make the biggest
temperance crank in town fall off
the water wagon.
Clearing operations were started this week from the Squamish
end of tht line on the sections
that have been blockaded since
the heavy snowstorm of January
22-23. The road is open to
Cheakamus Canyon, to a point
about nineteen miles north of the
ocean  terminal.     There are no
slides on the southern slope of
the first summit. The snow lies
from two to four feet deep
through the mountain sections.
Portions of the line are quite free
from snow, the recent mild weather having simplified the physical
problems that have had to be
dealt with at many points.
The other obstructions are
mainly of a minor character, it is
stated. Determined efforts will
be made to have the entire read
cleared and ready for traffic again
at an early date. The temperature along the route lately has
been averaging from 30 to 50
degrees above.

of the P.G.E., was in Vancouver

The undersigned begs to announce to the public that he has
resigned from the management
of the Prospector. Mr. Morrison,

Half-Way House News
From our own cerrespendent.
Dame Nature has once again
ushered in the fever season,
bringing her usual epidemic of
spring plowing. The Half-Way

acres of an intended hundred.

Arthur Trute, one of Lytton's
first volunteers for active service,
he having enlisted immediately
after the declaration of war in
August, 1914, returned to the
city last week, after receiving
wounds at the battle of Ypres,
which necessitated him being laid
up in a hospital in Liverpool for
six months. Arthur received
shrapnel wounds in the elbow
which practically put his right,
arm out of commisson. He is now
on three months leave, and his
many friends hope that he may
be speedily restored to health.
Arthur is very optimistic, and
predicts the war coming to a successful conclusion for the Allies
by the end of the present year.
Lytton's contingent of thirty
good men and true left the city

Hearty Farewell to A. E. Ludwig
Mr. A. E. Ludwig was the guest
of honour at a gathering of a
number of his friends at the home
of Mrs. J. S. Bell on Wednesday
evening last.
This gentleman is leaving in a
short time to join up with His
Majesty's forces, and it was the
desire of those who met him to
express in a simple manner their
appreciation of his qualities, and
their hope for his future success.
It is recognized that in the conduct of the Prospector Mr. Ludwig has consistently avoided any
pandering to morbid tastes in allowing the paper to be the channel for the dissemination of that
which only besmirches. His policy
has been always, "Write about
the brightest and best side of
life," and one of the best features of the Prospector has been
that it has refused to be the cockpit for the fighting out of personal feud?.
Mr. Ludwig is no stranger to
life on the prairies, and later his
residence here in the mountains
will be reckoned among the
pleasantest of his experiences.
He leaves the district with the
heartiest good wishes of his numerous friends, and they are confident that his varied gifts will
enable him to become one more
worthy Lillooet representative as
a "Soldier of the King."-Com.
Goes to Lillooet
Mr. W. E. Morrison, a well
known resident of this city, who
was formerly ir partnership with
Mr. Fred Jackson in the Jackson
Printing company, has taken over
the Lillooet Prospeetor, and will
leave for that thriving town this
evening. Mr. Morrison is a printer of experience and a man of
business ability. He should make
the Prospector popular in the new
region and well known beyond.—

As the Prospector appears
today under a new manager,
our readers will no doubt expect a brief outline of our
policy. If political questions
should arise which in our
judgment would affect seriously the interests we have
come to serve, then we should
be recreant to the trust reposed in us if we remained
silent. Our aim, however,
shall be not so much the success of a political party as
the establishment of good
government. The interests
of the Province in general
and of the Lillooet District inl
particular shall always command the first place* in our
The older Provinces of Canada have long ago built their
house and now they enjoy
life under settled conditions.
Not so with us. We are
young, scarcely three-fourths
of a century old. Our bouse
is "in the making" and until
it is finished we must work
with our coats off.
Our great natural resources
are becoming known to the
outside world and B.C. is being recognized by capital as
a safe place for profitable investment. The ball is now
in motion and it is for the
people of British Columbia
themselves to speed it forward with ever increasing
velocity. Wild cat speculations which may enrich a few
generally result in impairing
the reputation of the Province, and a.discredited reputation is as a disastrous to a
cornmunity as to an individual. Let our motto be:
"Truth and Justice," and as
in the case of Solomon, riches and honour will follow.
Our varied and extensive
mineral deposits, our vast
areas of fruit, timber and
agricultural lands, our inexhaustible fisheries, our
limitless witter power, our
magnificent climate and our
commanding geographical
position for tbe trade of the
Pacific Ocean are each and
all magnets of sufficient force
to irsiw eapital from the four
corners of the earth. We
have the goods ; all we need
to do is to exhibit them in
their true colours. In this effort the Prospector will join
wifch all its energy.
We are on the threshold of
great events. In the upbuilding of the Province the
Lillooef District is certainly
destined to play an important
part. Railway and water
stretches will give us new
opportunities for development, but these opportunities will call for much acti
vity, in which we should all
pull together as one man.
Brief correspondence on those
vital questions will always
find a place in our columns.
We say "brief," as the
Prospector is yet an unpretentious paper, but it is here
to grow with the country;
when more space will be
Those who have visited
the Lillooet district, now
brought into close touch with
the Coast cities by the Pacific Great Eastern Railway,
speak in enthusiastic terms
of the fruit production of
that region and its agricultural possibilities. The fertile soil of the valleys, the
dry climate and the success
achieved so far in fruit culture, promise much for the
future. Other agricultural
production is also promising.
The mineral resources of the
region are awaiting development and much is expected
in the way of mining activity
in the immediate future. The
railway, which has been built
as the result of Provincial
government assistance, is responsible for the recent growth of settlement and a new
attention to production in

Mining Industry
Needs Attention
Prof. Gwillim, of Kingston, a
member of the deputation from
the Canadian Mining Institute,
which waited on Sir Thos. White
recently, speaking on the conditions affecting the education in
mining and metallurgy, deplored
the iarge reduction in the number
of stadents entering mining colleges. This was not dye to the
war, but the reason was that
they did not get the right material to train. He said that unless
something was done the mining
industry would be saturated with
people not Canadians; that the
institute should encourage students and treat them as cadets.
Suggestions by the members included bonuses for research work,
alteration of the mining courses
to include more mechanical training and better conditions in the
mining districts, as well as provision of mining schools for boys
leaving high school before going
to the university.
Dr. Adam Shortt, speaking on
Canadian gold and war finance,
said the Canadians spent vast
sums on frivolous extravagance,
but if it desired to do so Canada
could accumulate capital faster
than any other country, and domestic loans could be raised over
and over again with success.
WiLh.the increase in the value of
copper, nickel, wheat and other
articles needed by Britain and
the European Allies, it was futile
to concentrate on gold mining
when labor expended on that
mining could produce goods that
were demanded and obtain two
or three times the value of gold
got by similar amount of energy.
New Dominion Inspector
Mr. W. H. Lyne, assistant fruit
inspector of the Province under
the late Mr, Thos. Cunningham,
has been notified by the Dominion
authorities of his appointment
under the Federal Government
as a Dominion inspector of destructive insect pests in succession to the late Mr. Cunningham.
Mr. Lyne, who will retain his
provincial appointment, has been
with the fruit pests inspection
office for the past ele\en years.
The new office will extend the
•scope of jurisdiction of Mr. Lyne
in the task of inspecting fruit
and agricultural produc s forjn-
sact pests, both those imported
into the province and those exported .to other, provinces. At
the present time British Columbia is a large exporter of potatoes
to the United States, the eastern
provinces and Australia, all of
which must pass rigid inspection.
There will be no new appointment to the office of provincial
