ULLOOET PROSPECTOR
VOL.^, NO. 12
LILLOOET, B. C, -FRIDAY, JANUARY 19, 1917.
$2 PER YEAR
ALIENS BARRED
W. W. Cory, deputy minister of
the interior, has confirmed the
report that in future' western
homesteads will not be given to
Germans, Austrians, Bulgarians,
or Turks. The exception to this
new rule will be in the case
of men born in these enemy
belligerent countries who had become naturalized British citizens
before the outbreak of war.
The desirability of such action
being taken has been recognized
for some time, but the order in
council bringing it into effect has
only received the sanction of the
governor general in council. This
action will be in line with what
will undoubtedly be the after-the-
war policy in Canada—the prohibition, or at least the discouragement of immigration to Canada of citizens of countries now
at war with Great Britain. Citizens of all neutral countries will
be welcomed to Canada and given
homesteads as in the past. —

Recovej From This.
Do you know what a "Bachy-
diastenalolhermumadiagascarens-
is" is? You don't? Well its an
embryo sphenifanailes skesiaforid
pelicepod of the paleozic age, the
professor of geology at the University of Chicago told his open-
mouthed students. No one questioned his statement.
Messers P. Le Bourdais, J.
Barton and G. Pratt, all of Clinton, have enlisted in His Majesties Forces to do their bit. The
boys are held in high esteem,
and about sixty persons turned
out to see them off. They left
Clinton for Vancouver by way of
the P. G. E.
The Only Way
All goats delight to take a bite
Of posters on the fence.
Bpth night and day they chew away
With appetites immense.
And then again the merry rain
Will posters wash away.
You can't ensure, that's true for sure
How long the sheets will stay.
So all wise guys—they advertise
In papers, so they do-
Where rain cannot hurt it a bit
Or goats break in and chew.—Ex.
A  MESSAGE  TO CANADA
WEDDING
We received word this week
from Bellingham to the effect
that:
The marriage of Miss Vesta
Sebring and Mr. Fred Harmon
took place in Bellingham on January 10. The happy couple left
on a short honeymoon to Vancouver and Victoria, and will stay at
Banff and Calgary on there way
home to Castor, Alberta, where
they will reside.
The happy couple are well
known throughout this district.
The Prospector joins with their
many friends in wishing them a
happy and a prosperous wedded
life.
(By LIEUT. G. M. DOWNTON,
3rd Canadian Pioneers.)
Oh you who by race and by fortune inherit
Our Empire, united, calm, steadfast and
free,
Remember the cost of the struggle which
welded
Forever her bulwarks by land and by sea.
Remember the cost while in pride and in
wonder
You read of the deeds which our comrades have done,
When Prussia's mailed hosts would have
torn her asunder
To win "with God's help" to a place in
the sun.
Read on, but remember, we leave you to
follow
The footsteps we marked with our life-
blood and pain,
Rough hewn but indeliable, graven in sorrow.
But bright with the faith that no  deed
was in vain.
Oh, bright were our hopes when we left
that fair coun.try ..,*■
Of  islands and  prairies and orchards,
aglow
With radiance reflected from crimsoning
sunsets
Which tinge with their glory her ramparts of snow.
Oh Canada, rich with the love of thy children
Who left thee to fight for thy freedom
and fame,
Gird more for the conflict, nor weep for
the fallen
Who  rest in  the  knowledge of  Germany's shame.
Thy strong and thy fearless have rushed
to the battle,
Thy westernmost boundaries echo the
cry,
Thy daughters in grief and in pride have
delivered
Their all and their best to endeavor or
die.
Is death to be feared  in  the  struggle to
succour
The weak and the helpless from tyranny's way,
Or sacrifice vain when the fruits of the
victor
■ Wrest  power  from   those   whom   all
honour betray? . ,
Thy   sons   and  thy daughters* have an-
awered the challenge *
In pride and in scorn have they shouted
their "Nay,"
And how in their thousands thy sons have
departed
To grapple the foes who had longed for
"the Day."  ,
The hour has come, let us never forget it.
When   Canada's   manhood' stemmed
Prussia's advance,
And clear-eyed and Stalwart stood face to
the battle
And threw back the Huns on the borders of France.
Remember  Festubert,   Langemark,   and
Givenchy,
St. Eloi and Ypres mark many a grave,
St. Julian's glory shall ring down the ages
With Hodge and the Salient held by the
brave.
The cornfields of Flanders shall wave o're
the fallen
Her flowers shall cover the graves of
the free,
But their spirits shall mingle in Canada's
glory,
Boundless as prairie, deep as the sea.
They live with us ever, to strengthen our
courage.
Bright stars to encourage and  lighten
our way.
We lost them to find them immortalized
ever
Our guides to a greater and quieter day.
Oh, God of our fathers, whose love never
faileth,
With whose help, far behind us, our
fears we can cast,
Support us in danger and comfort our
loved ones,
And bring us to peace to Thy Kingdom
at last.
Mr. Downton, writer of the
above verses, is well known apd
highly esteemed in this district.
He left Lillooet and joined His
Majesty's Forces as a private soldier, but his ability was soon
recognized and he was promoted
to Instructing Sergeant of machine gunnery. He has now received his commission. We wish
him still higher promotion and a
safe return from the conflict.
PRODUCE
One lesson that ought to be
learned by everybody who has
control of a bit of ground no matter how large or small, Is that at
present war conditions demand
that every square yard must be
made to produce its quota. The
farmers and horticulturists of
France are cultivating their soil
within sound of the guns. We
cannot hear the guns in British
Columbia, but we know enough
about conditions to spur us to
fresh efforts in the year whose
days are gliding bye so rapidly.
In many districts there is too
much waiting for things to turn
up. It would be well for some of
us to take a lesson from the
French and Belgian horticulturists and get to work. Nature cooperates with the industrious
man. Let every one who has
control or can get control of a
rod or two of Mother earth set to
work and make it productive.
Gives the Eye a Bath
Every few seconds we wink
both eyelids at once, although not
purposely. If we stop winking
our eyes become uncomfortable
and gradually cease to work as
they should. When the eye is
open the front of it is exposed to
dirt and dust and is apt to become
so dry that a painful stinging
sensation results, or would do so
if constant moisture were not
provided to cleanse and soothe
the tissues.
As a matter of fact, each time
we wink we wash the eye, says
the Popular Science Monthly for
January. Up above each eye is a
tiny water bag called the tear
gland, and all the time we are
awake it makes tears. When the
front of the eye feels itself becoming a little too dry of dusty a
communication is sent for a. supply of moisture. The eyelid then
comes down with a tear inside it
to wash clean the front of the
eye. This is the most gentle
and perfect washing in the world
—Ledge.
We received this week a copy
of the "Military Hospitals Commission Bulletin." The official
organ is full of interesting news
concerning what is being done
for our returned soldiers, the paper can be seen at the hotels.'

A countryman visiting Dublin
city for the first time took a seat
in a tram. Being next to a pompous looking gentleman, he began
conversation in a rather free-and-
easy style. At length the mighty
one said:
"My good man, reserve your
conversation for one of your own
equal. I'd have you know I'm a
K.C."
At this the countryman stood
up with outstretched hands, exclaiming: "Shake hands, namesake; I'm a Casey myself."
The department of Mines, in
an estimate of the steel production of Canada in 1916, puts the
total at 3,454,000 short tons, an
increase of some 42 per cent over
the figures of 1915. It is added
that during the present year over
43,000 tons of steel ingots and
castings came from electric furnaces. Electric smelting has long
been known to be a scientific possibility. In Sweden, where much
attention was given to experiments, it was gradually developed
into a commercial possibilits. The
record in Canada now announced
suggests that the goal may have
been reached.
I have often seen; with an anguish of mind infinitely sad, the
souls of animals appear in the
depths of their eyes,—the soul of
a cat, the soul of a dog, the soul
of a monkey,—as sorrowful for
an instant as the soul of a child,
revealing itself suddenly in a look,
searching my own soul with tenderness, supplication or terror.
And I, perhaps, have had more
pity for these souls of animals
than for those of my brothers,
because they are without speech
and incapable of coming' out of
their half-nifhtf and, especially,
because they are humble and
more disdained.      Pierre Loti J

GERMANY AND TRADE
Germany has long realized
that her great industrial and
commercial success has been
due to the subordination of
the individual and the extension of the idea of organization and combination. The
war was but the culmination
on Germany's part of a
scheme to rule the world
politically as, well as commercially. She had to a great
extent attained a world wide
trade and she had instituted
a net work of agents and
agencies to attain this. On
the outbreak of war these
were ready as the snbservient
helpers of their Prussian
masters. The story of how
these methods were applied
to the various countries that
were subjected to German influence is a very interesting
one, and the lessons to be
drawn from it are highly important.
Germany operated with
great success in Italy, Russia, Swden, Turkey and Brazil besides England and
France. Her ideas being to
get control of as7 many avenues and powerful combinations as possible. Of this ingenious way of enslaving
foreign nations unknown to
themselves, Italy's experience offers an instructive illustration. The headquarters
of the German commercial
army in that realm were the
offices of the Banca Commer-
ciale in Milan. This institution was founded under the
auspices of the Berlin Foreign Office with the cooperation of a German capitalist
named Bleichroder, who was
the head of a bank carried
on under his name. Employ
ing the small capital of one
million dollars, it worked its
way, at the cost of the
Italian people into the vitals
of the nation, and finally
succeeded in obtaining the
supreme direction of "the foreign trade, national industries and finances, and in
ursping an enormous amount
of political influence. Between 1895 and 1915 the capital of this inititution had
augmented from $1,000,000
to $31,200,000. The cleverness of the German financiers was shown in the fact
that Germany and Austria
held but two and a half per
cent, while controlling all
the operations of the bank
itself and of the trades and
industries linked with it.'
If an industry in the commercially invaded - country
was deemed capable of becoming subsidiary to some
German industry, the bank
would maintain it for the
purpose of amalgamating the
two later on, or else having
the-foreign concern absorbed
by the Teutonic. But if the
business was recognized as a
formidable rival to some German enterprise, it was doomed. The bank advanced
money readily, tied the firm
financially, rendering it wholly tributary, and then when
the hour of destiny struck,
the credit was suddenly withdrawn, and the curtain rung
up in the bankruptcy court.
It will be seen that these
methods were precisely similar to those employd by
some of the American trusts
to control markets and crush
competition. But they had
behind them the support of
the German Government.
They were recognized as an
important part of the machinery which was one day
to make the German Government the supreme power
of the world. H
JAPAN AND THE WAR
For the third time in a
auarter of a century Japan
is entertaining prisoners of
war. «In 1894 her military
guests were Chinese. In 1904
they were Russians. Now
they are Germans. There*
are in all 4,666 German prisoners in Japan now. These
were the defenders of Tsing-
tao who surrendered. It is
worthy of notice that the
treatment of these prisoners
by Japan is of an enlightened and generous kind. The
Japanese have taken Britain
for their pattern in the matter, and the Hun captives
have no cause for complaint.
That this gentleness towards the prisoners implies
no neglect of the duties of
warfare is evident from what
Japan has accomplished in
furtherance of the cause of
the Entente Allies. Russia
has found in Japan as faithful and helpful a friend as
she was once a bold and determined enemy. How much
Japan's aid has contributed
to Russia's successes we shall
know when the . history of
the war has been written.
Her cooperation in producing
munitions has been invaluable. When her share in the
war is called to mind, her
splendid service in keeping
commerce in the Eastern seas
entirely free from enemy
molestation in spite of German machinatations and intrigues, is not likely to be
f orgotton. No less deserving
of recognition is the fruitful
fidelity with which Japan has
discharged the obligations of
the treaty with England and
the constant helpfulness that
she has shown in her dealings
with the Entente Allies.

Dad met the captain in the morning—oh yes. such things do happen—
and Cissy met him at lunch. It was
thrilling to talk to a real soldier.
Most of tbe men she knew bad raised
u moustache for tbe Allies—anc that
was all.
When ho proposes tobogganing
Cissy hunted up her furriest, fluffiest,
fetchingest coat and complied. Incidentally, the French cupid transferred
the arrow from the trunk to her eyes
—big, dark eyes they were and disastrously eyelashed.
The Btreets tingled with life. They
flowed with color. Everywhere you
heard the lilt cf Gallic laughter.
There were soldiers too, endless
groups of them. And every group encountered, when one was on the
magic company of an officer, meant a
salute. CUsy had been bowed to,
cringed to, kneeled to, but saiuted by
real active-service soldiers—never
before.    It was thrilling.
Tobogganing is the king of winter
sports, the Coney Island climax of
speed-daring, swallow-darting adventure. The most popular slide tt> Quebec starts from under the shadow of
the King's Bastion of the Citadel and
ends on Dufferin Terrace at the entrance to the Chateau Frontenac tea
room. It starts as "pleased-to-maet-
you, glad-you-steer"; it goes a quarter of a mile in something under
thirty seconds; and when it haa
landed you breathless and weffl'-
acquainted at the door of the *'*£a
room—why, after half an hour of
such glorious fellowship, you just
naturally drift in.

"After all, we're one race," said the
captain, smiling, "what do you say to
snowshoeing to-morrow!"
The day was a perfect pearl, a sundrenched ecstasy.   The south takes
the life out ef one. The north pumps
it in and uses it up again at top pressure. The long miles melted into
memories.
"How can yeu leare itr Cissy
burst out at last, "this glorious conn-

guns and the gas and those awful,
awful trenches T"
"How could I stay? The more wonderful it is—child, child, isn't it

She touched his arm timidly. He
looked so grim.
"Oh. but I do!" she whispered.
"My great-great-grandfather fought
under Washington. This ain't my

The captain was more afraid then
than thousands ef Germans would
have made him. But he charge*

There wasn't a sound in all the:

"It isn't true. It couldn't be," said
Cissy, awed, "and yet I know I lovei

Out of the end of a feathery, snow-
