Mr. Shaiford  Sees Njw Era of Development in Province's Mining
Industry.
British Columbia is shortly to
experience a new era in the
development of her mining industry, in the opinion of Mr. L.
W. Shatford, M.L.A., (Similkameen) who spoke in the House
last week on the debate on the
address. Mr. Shatford claimed
that there was an abundance of
capital awaiting a favourable opportunity of entering the province
for the purpose of assisting in
mining. The first move, however, would have to be made by
the people of the province, he
said, and the time had come for
the adoption of a progressive
mining policy. In his opinion,
British Columbia is not by an.y
means sharing to a proper degree
in the profits now accruing from
the high prices of metals. Measures should be adopted, he believed, for a batter system for
the tabulation of results of investigations made by government
engineers and geologists. Further encouragement should also be
lent to the prospectors. He went
on to say that if the reports of
the engineers were tabulated
properly prospectors would be
able to get accurate information
on the possibilities of the various
sections of the Province, and
^ fnrthermore, they could get accurate and definite reports on
their own holdings.
The speaker urged the government to take into consideration
the advisability of making loans
to prospectors under proper supervision after favourable reports
had been^made on their properties. Then they would be able to
expend the money in opening up
their claims. Another innovation
he recommended was the installation of government-owned assay offices at which free or at
least cneap assays could be made
for prospectors and holders of
free miners' licenses. Mr. Shatford thought that prospectors at
the preseat time- were sadly
handicapped because of the expense they were put to in connection with assays by private
concerns. He suggested that
• the government issue with each
free miners' license a book of
coupons entitling the holder to
twenty f.ve i^ays "during the
year, at the same time making
provision to give the bona-fido
prospector a further amount of
assays at a nominal charge.
Before he left the subject of
mining in his valuable and well-
delivered speech, Mr. Shatford
threw out the suggestion that the
province be divide 1 into mineral
districts.each in charge of an engineer. It would be the duty of
these engineers to investigate
and report on all mining properties brought to their attention
and this information would then
be tabulated for the benefit of
possible investors as well as the
owners, in the uistrict offices and
also with the department of mines
. in Victoria.
Mr. Shatford highly commended the elevation of Hon. Lorne
Cf.mpbell to the portfolio of mines
in the Bowser cabinet

Subscriptions to the Canadian
Patriotic Fund are urgently needed, the Lillooet branch having
been requested to furnish $1,500
as their yearly share of the immense amounts needed to assist
the wives, families and dependents of the men now at or in
training for service overseas and
other military service.
All Government servants are
now contributing one day's pay
per month, and in some cases
more, towards the Fund, and it
is expected that these amounts
will be greatly augmented when
the campaign for funds is inaugurated;
Mr. Nation, Provincial Sec'y of
the Canadian Patriotic Fund, intends to visit Lillooet in the near
future, when he will speak on the
great work now being done by
this organization.
Half-Way House News
From our own cerrefpsndent.
Fred Watkinson, of Foster's
Bar ranch, was the victim of a
very serious accident last Friday.
While cutting a strip of iron for
wagon repairs, a large piece of
rtd hot iron flew from his anvil
and struck him in the comer of
his left eye. In addition to the
shock of the flying metal he suffered great anguish from the
severe burn. He was rushed to
Lytton as quickly as possible,
where after receiving medical
aid he was sent to Vancouver for
expert attendance. Word has
since been received that it was
necessary to put two stitches in
his eyelid, and he is now .doing
splendidly.
A runaway which might easily
have terminated in a serious accident, but which luckily only
caused extreme excitement to the
participants, occurred on this section of Lillooet road. The names
of the occupants of the buggy
have failed to pass censorship, but
suffice it is to say they were ladies
and that the Rosebank claim they
have a mare which can do the
mile in one-quarter mile time.
A well-attended service took
place at the Half-Way last Sunday. We
have been authorized to announce that
service will be held every alternate Sunday until further notice, the next one
occurring on April 9.
S. D. Cooper is down from the
Pioneer mine.
R. A. Nicholson, of Vancouver,
is registered at the Victoria hotel.
Mr. D. Hurley arrived back
from the coast on Monday.
Mr. Jos. Russell caught some
fine trout in Seton lake this
week.
Indian Agent Graham, of Lytton, was here for a few days last
week.
Mr. A. E. Ludwig, formerly
manager of the Prospector, left
for the coast on Sunday.
Mr, A. Phair, of the Excelsior
hotel, spent a few days this week
on his property on Anderson lake.
Mrs. Dr. Christie returned
home on Sunday from a visit to
friends in Vancouver.
J. B. Perkins, of the Texas
creek molybdenite mine, was in
town this week.
' C. D. Wray, of Cayoosh creek,
entered the hospital here on
Wednesday for treatment.
J. G. Firby, representing the
Great West Life Insurance Co.,
was in Lillooet this week.
J. F. Supon, C. P. R. agent at
Lytton, was in town on Monday
evening, returning home the next
morning.
W. A. Kettyls & Co. are closing
out their livery and transfer
business in Lillooet. Mr. Kettyls
intends to move to the prairies.
Mr. Phair shipped 250 Mcintosh Red apple trees from his
nurseries to the Washington Nursery Co., Toppenish, Wash., on
Wednesday.
A. Bryan Williams, provincial
game warden, announces that in
view of the fact that the season
is such a late one the Government
is extending the trapping season
until the end of April.
Mr. French purchased a fine
saddle horse from Kettyls & Co.
this week, and is the envy of the
rest of us poor mortals as he
moves along the street on his
prancing steed.
Excellet progress with the work
of clearing the Pacific Great
Eastern railway is reported by
the operating department of the
company. The clearing of the
line to Mons was the biggest task
as the more serious trouble has
been encountered on that section.
North of the summit and on to
Lillooet the encumbrances present no serious difficulties.
All who are eligible to have
their names placed on the provincial voters' list and have not
registered, are reminded that
the next court of revision will be
held on May 15 and that all applications must be in April 3.' All
male British subjects of the age
of 21 years who have resided in
British Columbia for six months
previous to April 3, are entitled
to be placed on the voters' list
for the Province.
R. F. Buxton, representing
Leeson, Cross & Dickey, Vancouver, was in town this week
and reported business good. Mr.
Buxton advises the ranchers in
this district to cultivate every
inch of land they have, as there
will be a big demand for food
stuffs this season. Beans, potatoes and small fruits will have a
ready sale, and with the excellent shipping facilities that we
hope to have between here and
Vancouver very soon, ranchers
will be able to deliver perishable
fruits to the market in a few
hours, and should therefore arrive in first-class condition.
British Columbia has enlisted
24,856 men since the outbreak of
the war. The figures are up to
the 29th of February.
Notwithstanding the allegedly
large exodus of settlers from the
province during the past year,
the school population has continued growing. The report of
the Superintendent of Education,
Dr. Alexander Robinson, issued
recently, shows a total enrolment
in all colleges and schools of 64,-
624, an increase of 2361 over that
of the previous year. The number of boys was 33,289 and all
girls«31,335, The average daily
attendance was 52.821, an increase of 3444. The percentage
of attendance was 81.73, the
highest in the history of public
schools in British Columbia.
Nearly 2000 teachers were employed. The enrolment in Mc-
Gill University College was 360,
of whom nearly three hundred
were students in. Vancouver.
Seton Lake News
From our own correspondent.
 ■♦	
Lost, strayed or stolen—a
rooster belonging to a lake resident and worth anywhere from
$10 to $30.
With the advent ef spring, are
the different signs of spring. We
have noliced the appearance of
robins, blue-birds, crows and
white coats, all symbolical of
warm weather.
The approach of spring brings
its usual epidemics. Miss Florence Dunlop has been sick for
some time, ahd now Mr. Fred
Arthur has caught some kind of
malady. We hope for a speedy
recovery.
We have heard of goats charging an approaching automobile;
we have seen goats shot from the
steps of the Seaton Lake school,
but the latest, is "big game"
hunting in your own hen-house.
A Seton Lake resident, armed
with a shot-gun and lantern,
made a "night attack" on his henhouse. After a few preliminary
manoeuvres, he broke down the
"first line of defense." Entering the "redoubt" cautiously, he
found to his disgust that the
game, a weasel, had disappeared
and so had a hen.

Our Future as a Province.
In 1858 the rush to Cariboo
in quest of gold brought
British Columbia prominently to the notice of the outside
world for the first time. Its
entrance into the Dominion
and the arrival of the C. P. R.
were other epoch-making
events in its history. These
events are all in the memory
of many living, who can picture conditions then and now
and have their faith in the
future of the Province
strengthened by the comparison. But the more recent
arrivals have not this knowledge ancl may therefore be
excused if found wanting in
patriotic enthusiasm. If they
had this knowledge, the
probability is we should have
no "knockers" in B.C.
Let us suppose one of our
pioneers were told in 1858
that in 1916 three continental
railways would be found centred on Burrard Inlet, with
more coming., an electric railway system centred at New
Westminster, automobiles
speeding at the rate of forty
miles an hour through the
country, large steamers from
Gas Town sailing north, south
and west over the Pacific
ocean, he would say : This
cannot be in my lifetime. But I
he sees today the fulfilment
of the prophesy and more.
He sees the Province blazing its way rapidly to the
first place among the nine
provinces of Canada. Already it occupies fourth place
in the value of farm products
per acre and per farm. It
occupies third place in the
amount of money invested in
manufacturing industries. It
occupies second place in tonnage of coasting trade vessels and in mineral production. In proportion to population it occupies second place
also in the number of wage
earners employed in manufacturing industries. It occupies first place in lumbering and fisheries, and, in
proportion to population, in
the value of products from
manufactured industries.
If our Province has made
such progress, and all within
the memory of those now living, he is a bold man who
would limit the wonderful
possibilities the future holds
in reserve for us if we are
only true to ourselves and to
our opportunities.
Pacific Great Eastern
Finance.
The statement brought
down by the Government setting forth the present position of the Pacific Great East
ern shows that even if the
hypothecated bonds were sold
at par they would go only a
short way toward the completion of the line. If the
railway is to finished other
means must be found. There
is a general agreement that
the line will be of great value
to the province, and that it
should be completed and extended into the Peace River
country as soon as possible.
The Province is now paying
interest on the guaranteed
bonds, and for this reason
also should be anxious to have
the railway completed and
paying its own charges out of
traffic.
But before any new arrangement is made the people
have a right to know how
much was actually paid bv
the company for the work
already done. It is announced that the company gave
one of its members a contract
for building the whole line.
This contract was given without competition, at a price
which is not disclosed. The
contractor let the work to
sub-contractors, and they to
station men. Now if Mr.
Welsh, to whom the contract
for the whole road was
awarded, has been able to
let the work to other contractors, with a substantial
margin for himself, that
margin is not a part of the
necessary cost of the work.
Before any new advance is
made, or credit given, it
should be definitely ascertained how much of the proceeds
of the guaranteed bonds
actually went into construction. If a large part has gone
to a member or members of
the Pacific Great Eastern
Company over and above the
necessary outlay, that sum
should be made available for
construction before the province gives further assistance.
This is not a difficult matter
to clear up if the company
wish to deal frankly with the
people. —News-Advertiser.
In a recent issue of the
English Times newspaper we
notice that Joseph Martin,
M. P. for East St. Pancras,
now practising law in Vancouver, has telegraphed to
his Association, definitely
stating his intention to return
to his parliamentary duties
in London. Mr. Martin has
been absent from his constituency since June, 1914, and
was recently adopted as the
Liberal candidate in Cariboo
for the Dominion House of
Commons.

Game Warden's Report
In spite of the fact that 25,000
men enlisted from British Columbia last year, the game warden,
in his eleventh annual report.says
that this year's returns for the
department show a small profit
aside from the fines collected.
Many permits to kill deer were
issued to people in distress ; 1016
permits were so issued, but no
record could be kept of the deer
killed.
Thirty-four thousand two hundred and ninety-two licenses were
issued during the past year, of
which 8653 were free farmer's
licenses, and 2427 free prospectors' licenses. Both of the free
license classes showed decreases,
but the general decrease was very
light owing to the fact that many
people shot to lessen their butcher bills.
The destruction of game was
less this year in proportion to the
number of licenses issued than
..usual, because so many hunters
were inexperienced.
There was an extra influx of
big game hunters from the United
States on account of the fact that
the European war had diverted
sport seekers to Canada. These
men spent as much as $18,000 at
one small outfitting station, Telegraph Creek, and similar sums at
other places. The total revenue
from licenses, fines, etc., was
$76,250. 	
W. H. D. Ladner, recently
junior counsel in the well-known
firm of Bowser, Reid & Wall-
bridge. Vancouver, has moved to
Vernon, where he has entered
into partnership with A. O.
Cochrane.
Mayor Gillett of Prince George,
who was in Vancouver last week,
received a telegram from the Independent' Conservative Association of Prince George asking him
to run for the legislature. Mayor
Gillett has not yet decided whether to enter the field or not.

Was it the Storm or Chism's
Stories that Caused the
Happy Ending?
January, 1916, will long be remembered in Lillooet as one of
the coldest and stormiest months
in its history, but if this can be
said of Lillooet, the pattern of
beautiful climate, what of the
surrounding mountain passes and
rugged peaks, where the hardiest
and noblest sons of men seek out
the hidden store houses of valuable minerals, regardless of hardships.
ln the coldest weather they
keep warm by telling yarns of
Southern California or their mining experiences in Arizona ; and
again in the hot days of summer
they keep cool by telling stories
of the cold of Klondike, Atlin, etc.
But a Missouran can change
the subject regardless of custom,
at least Chism did at the Pioneer
mine blacksmith shop. Two weeks
after New Year's day Chism and
Mcintosh started to work as
usual, striking the iron while it
was hot, but it didn't remain hot j
long, as the day was cold, cold.
Chism told yarns of his young
days in Missouri, of corn. Johnnie
cake cream, eggs, and of happy
companions of his youthful days, i
He was so absorbed in this dream'
of his youth, that when he awoke
Mcintosh was gone. He had hit
the trail, scaling the heights of
Mission Mountain, gliding down
the other side to flag the P. G. E.
train, which only engulfed him
and his fellow passengers in a
mountain of snow at Pemberton.
What was to be done ? Axes were
procured and soon a big fire was
started. Kinder had the place of
honor next the fire. Mcintosh
did not sleep, he was the fairy
that kept the fire going, and when
the others woke in the morning,
Mac had by his side a fine pair of
skis, ten feet long, hewn from
the cypress and whittled fine with
his pocket knife. He was all
ready to start alone and finish his
journey, but was persuaded by
Kinder to wait till all were ready,
Four days later they all started
ski-ing 60 miles to Squamish,
thence by boat to Vancouver,
where nothing more was heard
of Mcintosh till a few days ago,
when his friends in Lillooet received the announcement of his
marriage to Miss Nora Fitzgerald,
of Vancouver, on the 16th inst.
We all join in wishing Mr. and
Mrs. Mcintosh a long and happy
married life, as the brave only
deserve the fair.—Com.

question was one made by the
Premier recently, when he decided in favor of John Hopp.

Boon for Prospectors.
Victoria, March 24.-Deputy-
Minister Tolmie of the mines department announced at a meeting
of the mining committee of the
House this morning that it was
proposed at this session to bring
in an amendment to the Mineral
Act, which, it is expected, will
prove a boon to the prospectors.
It will provide that when an
owner's right to his mining claim
lapses because of unpaid taxes,
he will be given a year in which
to continue develoament of the
property under lease from the
Government. That is to say the
claim will not be sold by tender
as has been the case up to the
present time. At the end of the
year, if the owner desires to obtain a crown grant for the claim,
he may proceed to do so by paying the necessary taxes, the $25
fee for crown grant having already been exacted as the price
of the lease. It is expected that
this amendment will protect the
rights of prospectors who may
have been unable to keep up payments and work on their claims,
and whose properties might then
pass into the hands of companies
