$2 PER YEAR
LIBERALS WIN
Elections Yesterday Result in the Defeat of the Conservative Party in British Columbia—Thirty-
six   Liberals   Elected — Prohibition
and Women's Suffrage Carried.
LILLOOET SEAT STILL IN DOUBT
The provincial e'eciiors held \ esterday throughout the province
resulted in almost a clean sweep for the Liberal party. Returns
up to 4 o'clock this afternoon gave the Liberals 36 seats. Conservatives 3, and 8 doubtful. Premier Bowser and all the members
of his cabinet were defeated with the possible exception of W. R.
Ross, the result of the vote in Fort George being still in doubt.
The fight in the Lillooet constituency was a hard one, the candidates running neck and neck most of the time. Mr. Bryson is
leading by five votes, with about a dozen polls yet to be heard
from.   The vote now stands: Bryson, 189; McDonald, 184.
Prohibition was defeated at the Lillooet poll by almost 2 to 1,
while women's suffrage carried by a big majority.
Outside returns indicate that both Prohibition and Women's
Suffrage carried in the province.
The following are the results in the Lillooet constituency as
far as heard from :

WEDDING BELLS
The marriage took place last
Sunday evening at Lytton of Miss
Susan Harris, daughter of Mr.
Thos. Harris, of Lillooet, and Mr.
Joseph Fleming, an employee of
P.G.E. railway. The happy
couple motored to Lytton, where
the ceremony was performed by
the Rev'd Archdeacon Pugh.
Miss Mary Harris, sister of the
bride, and Mr. Tony Medori, of
Lytton, were the witnesses.
Mr. and Mrs. Fleming will reside
in Lillooet
LOCAL   ITEMS   OF INTEREST
Mrs. F. S. Barnald, wife of
Lieut.-Governor Barnard, and
Mrs. Robt. Dunsmuir, of Victoria, are guests at the hatchery,
Seton Lake.
Mr. James Dickie, an old and
respected resident of this district
for many years, who is 91 years
of age, came to town yesterday
for the purpose of casting his
vote for his good friend, Archie
McDonald.
Sneak thieves broke into a
cabin belonging to Danny Hamilton, near Seton lake, and stole
three pairs of Minkets, worth
$11 a pair, and almost everything
else they could carry away. Mr.
Hamilton, who is mining in the
Bridge River district, discovered
his loss when he visited the cabin
a few days ago.
W. A. Kettyls, who left here
some time ago for the Peace
River district, informs us that he
has not found anything to suit
him there. He also states that he
has joined the Canadian Engineers and will be probably by this
time at Valcartier. He will make
an admirable soldier, as he is a
man that can turn his hand to
anything.
Great excitement was caused
in Lillooet this week when the
news was brought to town that a
couple of miners, Messrs. Jeffreys
and Mobbs, working on McGillivray creek were taking out
large quantities of gold. They
had about a hundred dollars worth
of nuggets, some valued as high
as $30. The district around McGillivray creek is one of the
richest in the province and there
will be a big rush of prospectors
to that part in the near future.
W. E. Scott, deputy-minister of
agriculture, and W. F. McDonald,
live stock commissioner, were in
town on Saturday on business in
connection with their departments. They left the same day
to visit the Chilcoten and other
districts in the north, and are
getting first hand information
regarding the conditions prevail-
in this part of the province. Both
gentlemen are enthusiastic over
our fruit growing and agricultural possibilities and think that
with our ideal climate and rich
soil a bright future is in store for
us. Mr. Scott states that the
Agricultural Credits Act is proving a great help to the farmers,
over $160,000 having been loaned
already.	
RETURNED SOLDIERS
A meeting of the Returned
Soldiers' Employment Committee
will be held in the court house on
Wednesday evening, the 20th
Sept., at 8p.m.   Samuel Gibbs,
Chairman.
CANDIDATES IN COLLISION
A serious accident was narrowly averted yesterday morning on
the 11-mile hill when the automobiles of Messrs. A. McDonald,
Conservative candidate and J. B,
Bryson, Liberal candidate, collided. Mr. McDonald was on his
way to Lillooet from Clinton, and
when coming around the curve
on the hill he met his opponent
face to face, the cars coming together with considerable force.
While the drivers, Messrs. Geo.
Carson and M. Botterill, were
making the necessary repairs to
the machines the candidates in
dulged in a very interesting discussion regarding the political
outlook in the Lillooet riding.
THERE IS MONEY IN BEES
Mr. and Mrs. G. M. Deaver, of
the 15-Mile Ranch, were in town
this week, and Mrs. Deaver gave
us some interesting information
regarding her success in the
keeping and handling of bees.
Starting two years ago with one
hive, Mrs. Deaver has now eight,
and the amount of honey she has
recei /ed this year must be almost
a record. From one hive 112
pounds have been taken this
summer and sufficient has been
left to feed the bees during the
winter months. The other hives
have done almost as well. The
honey has been sold at an average price of 30 cents per pound.
Mrs. Deaver does all the work
herself, even to the putting together of hives and attending to
the bees when they swarm, and
has found the work both pleasant
and profitable. The bees are kept
in the open during the winter
months by placing a larger box
over the hive and filling the space
between with chaff, and they
come out in the spring in good
condition and ready for work.
Mrs. Deaver had no experience in
this line of work previous to two
years ago, which makes her success all the more remarkable.
HON. JOS. MARTIN SPEAKS
The meeting held here on Wednesday evening in the interest of
Mr. Bryson, the Liberal candidate; was fairly well attended, a
large number of ladies being in
the audience. Mr. Samuel Gibbs
was chairman and had an easy
time, as there were no interruptions.
Mr. Bryson in a short speech
claimed that the Water Act was
unfair to the ranchers. He also
said the Grand Trunk Land Co.
owned the best land and the result was the settlers were driven
back onto the hills. He created
a little sensation when he stated
that the city of Vancouver was
the curse of the province, on account of the real estate boom, as
many of the farmers had sunk
their money in city lots and lost
it. Mr. Martin must have chuckled to himself on hearing these
remarks, as he had one of the
biggest subdivision in Vancouver
on the market a few years ago.
Hon. Mr. Martin was greeted
with applause, and said he was
glad to see so many ladies present,
as he had always been in favor of
the women getting the vote. Mr.
Martin did not live up to his reputation as a fighter, his speech
being a very tame effort. He
gave the government credit for
passing some good legislation,
some legislation that was not so
good and some that was rotten.
He asked the Conservatives to
join with the Liberals in an effort
to turn the Tories out. He attacked Bowser on account of the
connection of his law firm with
the P.G.E. railway in legal matters and claimed that no such
thing had been practiced when
he was in the cabinet or at any
other time. Mr. Martin is a
clever speaker and the people of
Lillooet will always be glad to
hear him, but he did not seem to
be up to his usual form on Wednesday night. THE  LILLOOET  PROSPECTOR

CoIBiit This to Memory
H^ier McKee once wrote
a pr^ger that is worth com-
mit&ag to memory. Among
"things he said:
lach me that sixty min-
jakes an hour, 16 ounces
|>und and 100 cents one
blp me to live so that I
down at night with a
eleajpconscience, without a
gun pider my pillow and un-
hauiiied by tne faces of those

doin^ thereof I may not stick

belong.
"Deafen me to the jingle
of tainted money.
"Blind me to the faults of
the other fellow, but reveal
to me my own.
"Guide me so that each
night when I look across the
dinner table at my wife, who
has been a blessing to me. I
will have nothing to conceal.
"Keep me young enough
to laugh with my children
and to lose myself in their
play.
"And then when comes the
smell of flowers and the
tread of the soft steps, and
the crushing of the hearse's
wheels in the gravel out in
front of my place, make the
ceremony short and the epitaph simple:
"Here Lies A Man."
—Ledge.
A public meeting will be held
at the court house, Lillooet, on
Saturday, Sept. 16th, at 7.30
p.m. sharp, to make the necessary arrangements to comply with
the request of Lieut.-Governor
Barnard in respect to the appeal
made by the British Red Cross
Society for funds to be raised on
'Our Day", Oct. 19th, 1916. The
ladies of Lillooet and vicinity are
especially invited to be present.
Mr. J. Dunlop, government
agent, has received the following
communication from Lieut.-Gov-
ernor Barnard in reference to the
appeal for funds for this worthy
cause:
Government House,
Victoria, B.C ,
Aug. 16, 1916.
Dear Sir, —I am enclosing copy
of a dispatch just received from
Lord Lansdowne, president of the
British Red Cross Society, ad vis
ing that, with the approval of
Their Majesties the King and
Queen and Her Majesty Queen
Alexander, an appeal is being
made throughout the Empire for
contributioi s for the great work
of the British Red Cross Society
on "Our Day". Thursday, the
19th of October.
The appeal made lant October-
resulted in a total collection of
$1,858,008.56in Canada, and very
large sums in other parts of the
Empire, but the increase in our
forces and in the great offensive
being carried on upon all fronts
is such that there is again an
urgent need for money.
British Columbia has responded magnificently to the demands
of various funds for patriotic purposes and I am confidently asking
for your assistance on this occasion.
In Victoria and Vancouver the
Canadian Red Cross Society has
undertaken to make the appeal,
and all other bodies in those districts are requested to co-operate
with them, in making a success of
"Our Day". It is expected that
wherever there is a branch of the
Canadian Red Cross Society it
will similarly undertake the work,
but will need all the support possible.
This request is being*sent to all
mayors and reeves in the province, to government agents or
other officials in unorganized dis
tricts, or to secretaries of school
boards, and to the heads of all
public and patriotic associations.
It is earnestly requested that
all those whom this circular reach

36-Juiy 7, 1916. THE  LILLOOET  PROSPECTOR
LETTER FROM PTE. PHAIR TO HIS
MOTHER
"OUR DAY"
The following letter was received last week by Mrs. C. Phair
from her son "Bert", who left
B.C. on the 10th of June with
the 102nd Battalion. The members of this Battalion are now in
the trenches, having crossed over
to France about the 10th of
August.: We have been informed
that four other B.C. Battalions
crossed at*the same time :
France, care of Army
Post Office, London.
Dearest Mother, -I am lying at
my ease answering the letter and j
post car.d which I just received,
and although it  is only 2 p.m.
most of.the other fellows in the;
hut are sound asleep, as we -have j
just returned from a strenuous-;
three days in the trenches.     Ij
know we are a bit late celebrating |
the first of July,   but we made ;
noise enough, with Fritz's help \
(the Prussians), to make up for^
lost time.     It wi.s an experience:
that I would not have missed for i
a good dta'.    What with  bombarding air-ships,  the  boom of
big  guns,   and  tihe  continuous
rattle of machine gun  and rifle
fire, there was something doing
every minute and continued all
night with the aid of star-shells,
which are   continually  shot up
from both sides.    We were right
up in the front trenches and were
mighty careful to keep our heads
well idown   below the parapet.
Hugh's (Cornwall, of  Ashcroft)
regiment was also there,  but I
couldn't find him, as he is in a
different company to the one w§
were with.   I am afraid that 1
much resemble the original scarecrow, as we had some rain and
the trenches get very muddy and
sticky, but I think I  need some
sleep   more than anything else
now.    There is always great demand for the Prospector amongst
the Lillooet boys, and Mr.  Morrison is to be congratulated on the
newsy little paper he gets up.
We get very little reading—have
just an English paper once in a
while.     Smokes are also, hard to
get.     I was two days out of the
three without a cigarette, that is
of my own.  I managed to borrow
enough to make out very well.
The  boys  of  Hugh's regiment
were very good to us.    They are
old hands, having been fighting
for eleven months, so they took
usiji hand, ?nd thanks tc them
showing us the dangerous places,
and our own ability to play ostrich
when Fritz got too busy, we came
out without losing a man. Pretty
lucky considering the amount of
lead that was   chucked   at the
trenches for our benefit,     Well,
dear, don't you worry one little
bit about yours truly. The trenches are not ha'f bad,  and I am
going back lo B.C. as soon as we
give old Fritz a real good walloping.   We have him going now
and will soon have him making
tracks for Berlin, then I will go
home and tell you all about it.
Till then be patient and you and
I will go on a big old bust, eh ?
but not to Bowen Island.
Best love to all the family from
your ever loving son,
Herbert L. Phair.

British Columbia, notifying me of the
amount.
,3rd.. By taking all steps possible to,
enlist public sympathy and by keeping1
the question before the public in the
local newspapers.

the British Red Cross,Society, either by
street Collections on October lvth, by
the giving of entertainments,* or by the
soliciting of subscriptions on or before
that Sate, or by a combination of all
these or other methods.
1 shall be glad to receive at as early a
date as possible an acknowledgment
from yourself,ror-fnain the person appointed for the purpose in your district/
so that it may teknown that the mat-!
ter is in hand in every part of the prov-

British Columbia people for the activity !
of the greatest Red Cross Society of all.
Believe me,
Yours very truly,

'-"■\       Copy of Cablegram.
London, 6:10 p.m.,
July 25, 1916.
Lieut.-Governor,
Victoria, B.C.
I have the honour to inform you that
the British Red Cross Society and the
Order of St. J tinare once more proposing to appeal throughout the Empire
by street and other collections upon
"Our Day", which has been fixed for
nineteenth October. The money received will be devoted to our wounded soldiers and sailors from home and overseas at the various seats of war. The
generous response which we received
last year from all parts of the King's
Dominions encourages us to hope tha
the constantly increasing demands for
our help may be met by a corresponding
increase of generosity throughout the
Empire. We shall be truly grateful to
you if you will assist our work by organizing an appeal and sending the proceeds to us for our sick and wounded at
the front. I shall be greatly obliged if
you will communicate the contents of
this cablegram to your ministers and
recommend the proposal to their favourable consideration. Their Majesties
the King and Queen and Her Majesty
Queen Alexandra are giving us their
gracious patronage, and I trust that
you will also see your way to help us in
the same splendid manner as you did
last year. Lansdowne,
President of British Red Cross Society,
Eighty-three Pall Mall, London.
