LILLOOET, B. C, FRIDAY, JULY 30, 1915.
§2 PER YEAR
Accidently Killed
A very regrettable accident occurred at Gunn Creek, hst Friday morning, when Joseph Shuster was  killed by a shotgun.
It appears that Joe had gone
outside his house to welcome
some visitors and was standing
just beyond the open doorway,
talking.
At the sama time, a prospector,
sitting inside the house, was trying to open a loaded shotgun
which had become jammed. Being usable to open the gun in
ordinary way, he took it across
his knee, with the barrel pointing
towards the doorway, the gun
suddenly went off and the full
charge entered Joe's right thigh.
Those present did all in their
power to render first aid, and are
commended by the doctor for
their endeavors.
Dr. Christie of Lillooet, received the telephonic summons
for medical aid, and accompanied
by Dr. Asselstine, left at once
for the scene, but, although not
a moment was lost in rushing
them there, Joe passed away before their arrival.
Joe came here about ten years
ago form Republic, Wash, the
townsite of which he is said to be
the original locator.
During his ten years in this
district Joe made a host of
friends. He never had a string
to his purse, nor a lock on his
door, and his name will never
die so long as the present generation of prospectors meet and
talk over old times, be it in the
Boundary district or here.
As a last tribute and mark of
esteem, the citizens of Lillooet
had their flags flying half-mast,
the town flag flying high above
them all. Joe was aoout 48 years
of age.
Bringing samples of ores rich
in gold, silver and antimony values, Messrs J. M. Williams and
S. A. Cawley. M. L. A., returned
to the city last night from a visit
to their elaims on McGillivary
Mountain in the Bridge River
district.
One sample of antimony ore
assays at 62 per cent, and carries
with it no arsenic or sulphur,
thus making its treatment a matter of little or no difficulty. The
antimony occurrs in a secondary
fissue in the mine where Messrs.
Williams and Crawley have uncovered a suhstancial showing of
silver-lead ore of exceptional values. A sample of concentrates
made from this ore gave a return
assay of 575 oz. of silver. $16.80
in gold and 50.5 per cent in lead.
The antimony does not occur in
the silver-lead vein but in the
secondary fissue. which in turn is
free from any other metal. An
effort is being made to prove how
extensive the body of a.itimony
is.
An effort is being made by
prospectors in the Bridge river
district to have tha government
build a road through the district,
which is rich in all kinds of minerals.—Province

'Land Scandals of B.C.'
This date will always rank as
one of the most glorious in the
history of the British Empire,
because it was the day which
found Great Britain ready—not
as regards men and munitions,
but in regard to instant decision
---to fling down the gauntlet and
hurl a challenge at he Herculean
Monster which dared to break
a contract to which she had been
a signatory.
If Britain had been alone she
would not have acted otherwise,
She knew the temper of her
sons, and, though the momentous
decision rested momentarily with
a few men at the head of affairs,
Prime Minister Asquith knew the
stuff of which Britons are made,
and hesitated not a second to
declare to Germany that if she
set one foot on the soil of little
Belgiurn the might of the British
Empire would be used to avenge
the wrong.
The end of one year of war
finds the flags of our Empire
floating more proudly than ever,
the Lion is wagging his tail, and
is about to spring upon the reptile which has pursued his pestiferous course for years to the
detriment of Europe.
Prime Minister Asquith, after
a year of magnificent Generalship
of his political forces, invites every remote village, every town
and city in the Domain of King
George to meet on the 4th August and say "Well Done, Go
Ahead and, with your brave allies, finish the business."
That is what Lillocet will do on
the evening of Wednesday next
at 7 o'clock in the grounds of
the English Church.
Prominent citizens and old
timers will on behalf of our little
town congratulate our leaders
and our allies.
Interesting statements will be
made as to the part which Lillooet
has been privileged to play in this
world movement and inspiration
will be gained from stirring addresses and martial music.
The Ladies as ever will be well
to the fore in their kindly efforts
to raise money by the sale of refreshments.
Let all Lillooet respond for
"Country, Home and Beauty."
Britain's Part
The rail on the P.G.E. is now
laid to the 14-mile creek.
Five feet two inches is now the
standard for Canadian army.
Geo. W. Deaver, 15 mile ranch
Ashcroft-Liliooet  road,   was  in
town this week.    He says things I
are good in his section. '
[from Vernon News]
The Chicago Daily News recently gave utterance to the following striking tribute to the pan
which Great Britain has already
played in the great war. The
Chicago paper says :
"Here are some of the things
Great Britain is doing:
"Holding the seas for the ships
of her allies as well as for her own;
protecting the coast the coasts of
her allies as well as her own;
struggling, in co-operation with
the French, to smash the Turks
and win the Balkans for the allied cause; rendering great aid to
the French and Belgian troops in
resisting the terrible onslaughts
of the Germans on the allied left
wing in the west; making loans
and supplying munitions to nearly all her partners in the war;
pursuing a financial policy in
Southeastern Europe likely to
promote the cause of the nationalities; putting into the field more
than ten times as many men as
ohe promised; guarding her own
soil and people against an invasion, which, if it came—and is believed to be far from impossible-
doubtless would be the most savage, and most unsparing, ever
known. With how many men?
Well with enough. To hear some
people talk, one would suppose
that upon Britain were laid the
duty of defending every land but
her own.
"Britain's wealth and sea power and military power are the one
sure safeguard against the triumph of Germany's unparalleled
war machine. Without Britain's
help, France aud Russia certainly
must have been crushed. Without Britain's whole-hearted participation in the war, who will say
that Italy would have ventured to
challenge the mighty and mercy-
less Germanic coalition? With
Britain out of the struggle, would
there there have been any hope of
the Balkan States dating to move?
"And Britain —never forget it
— was not compelled to go to the
aid of France. Come what might,
the most that ever Britain promised France was six divisions—
120,000 men. She was not in
honor bound to send a single soldier more. She could have stayed
out of the war. Germany had
begged her to stay out of the
war. Disgraced she might have
been— as Britons think, must
have been—if she had left Belgium and France and European
liberty t<» their doom.
"But she could have done so.
Few nations are without disgrace.
Without historical pages they
fain would obliterate. Britain
was not attacked. Britain might
have awaited the onset—as America is awaiting the onset. Britain
might have stood clear, might
have husbanded her resources of
men and money, might swiftly
have prepared, even might have
loomed over the stricken adversaries in the end and claimed the
hegemony of Europe for herself.
"Britain did not do so. She
threw her trident in to the scale.
She threw her sword into the
scale. She threw her gold into
the scale—and she is incalculably
rich.
"She threw into the balance
her impressive racial record, her
prestige, her unrivalled diplomatic skill. She threw—is throwing
—will throw into the balance the
whole puissance of the Empire.
"And all for what? For the
principal—the fruits of the principle—of the liberty of the individual against the despotism of
the State.
"Britain, one can believe may
be the author of same acts of
which she is not proud—may
have done some things to cause
her, looking back upon them with
full light, to wish they had never
been done. But in this war this
old and proud democracy is unfolding, applying a material
strength and a moral splendor
that for countless ages after this
conflict is stilled will be shining
andimmed admid the first glories
of history."
We must frankly confess that
when glancing over the "Victoria
Daily Times of July 23rd" in
! which appeared an article under
i the above heading, our eyes rest-
! ed upon some statements by H.
i Parnell concerning our District
of Lillooet which demanded a
moment's attention. We read
with amazement that "what land
there is in the valley is only capable of producing sage brush, being in the dry belt." Without
enlarging upon the lamentable
ignorance of the writer in regard
to the unapproachable value of
"sage brush land" when under
irrigation, we simply wish to
remark that fruit growers in Lillooet have for several years past
competed successfully against
the world in various exhibitions
and 1st prizes have frequently
been brought to our town.
The above gem of colossal effrontery would have been sufficient for us at one gulp, but for
the fact that another remark hit
us in the eye before we had time
to recover from the first. Thus,
"the large number of fire-wardens employed in a region from
which all the merchantable timber has been removed, shows it
is for political rather than for
economic reasons that these appointments are made."
Without mentioning the fact
that this large number of firewardens (8) is only employed
during 5 months (May to Sept.)
the enlightened writer of the
above, insults the "Daily Times"
readers by assuming that they
are unaware that even if it were
a fact (which it is not) that all
the merchantable timber has
been removed" the fires which
would rage over such a dry country would denude the mountain
tops and sides of what vegetation
there is and would thus destroy
the watersheds and ruin what
water supply is available, also
the fires would destroy completely all second growth and worst of
all would burn up the valuable
soil for several inches down and
turn our fair country into a dry
and dreary desert.
The duties of Fire-Wardens are
many and varied, and before attempting to discredit the Service,
it would be well for H. Parnell to
acquaint himself with the elementary facts regarding forestry,
and the functions of the Forest
Branch of the Lands Department
The Lands Department of B.C.
is doubtless thankful for helpful
criticism coming from well-informed quarters, but the letters
from which we have quoted two
sample extracts, show the critic
to be so ill-informed that there
would indeed be a "Crisis in B.
C." if a majority of men of his
calibre ever reached the ear of
the public.
