VOL. fa NO. 24
Mr. John  Dunlop Appointed to
Positions Vacated by Messrs.
Phair and Saul.
Mr. Caspar Phair, who was appointed Government Agent at
Liilooet on the 7th of .lanuury,
1878, has just been superannuated after 38 years service,
and we see by the estimates that
he receives the second largest allowance granted to any officer in
the Province.
Mr. Phair also held the following offices: Sheriff for Clinton
Judicial District, Registrar of
Supreme Court for Clinton Judicial District, Registrar County
Court of Cariboo, Registrar under the Marriage Act for Lillooet
District, Registrar of Voters for
Lillooet Electoral District, Coroner for County of Cariboo, Stipendary Magistrate and Judge of
Small Debts Court for County of
CariboQ, Commissioner for taking
Affidavits within the Province,
G)ld Commissioner for Lillooet
Mining Division, Assessor for
Lillooet and Cariboo District.
Mr. Phair is a well known resident of Lillooet and during his
many years in the service of the
government has conducted himself in such a manner as to gain
tho- respect and esteem ..of all
with whom he came in contact.
He leaves his many offices with
an honourable record, and we are
sure the people of this distHct
will join with the Prospector in
wishing him many more years of
health and happiness.
Mr. William Saul, who has retired from the office of Stipendary
Magistrate, was Dorh in Dublin,
Ireland, in 1836. and came to
Canada when two years of age,
living in Ontario for some years.
He moved to B.C. in 1863, where
he engaged in farming and mining, and many years ago was appointed magistrate at Clinton.
He has been aresutentof Lillooet
for the past three years and has
filled the office of Stipendary
Magistrate during that time. Mr.
Saul left for Clinton on Wednesday, whe.-e he will make his
Mr. John Dunlop, who has
been appoint el to most of the
offices previously held by Mr.
Phair, will also act as Stipendary
Magistrate. He has been a prominent merchantin this district for
many years and is well and
favourably known. We believe
he will fill his n-^w positions with
tact and ability and to the general satisfaction of the people with
whom be will come in contact.
To Assist Prospectors.
A feature of the new mining
legislation this year will be plans
for the establishment of a sampling plant for ores. At present,
testing of ore in volume has to
be done at Denver, Colo., as the
nearest point. The intention is
to establish a large sampling
plant probably in Vancouver.
Another proposal to be worked
out will be that of providing experts from the mines department
to go into the field and give advice and aid to prospectors when
the latter bring in samples of ore
which indicate that their find is
worth while.
Messrs. Swartz Bros., Wholesale
Dealers of Vancouver will
Establish Plant Here.
Mr. S. A. McFarlane informs
us that in conversation with
Messrs. Swartz Bros., the wholesale fruit and produce dealers of
Vancouver, recently, they signified their intention of putting in
a packing plant in Lillooet early
in 'June, and will be in a position
to handle all kinds of fruit and
vegetables from that date. This
will be good news for the people
of this district, who will how be
able to deal directly with this
firm in Lillooet instead of shipping to the coast and relying on
tne wholesale merchants there to
look after interests. There has
been much dissatisfaction in the
past, and very small profits have
been realized in many cases, but
this will now be remedied by the
installion of the plant here.
Messrs. Swartz Bros, bought a
large quantity of fruit here last
year and, we believe, gave good
satisfaction, and we hope the
growers in this district will do
everything in their power to
make the new venture a success.
Lillooet fruit had the reputation last year of being ihe best on
the Vancouver market, and we
believe if the growers will pay
strict attention to cultivation and
keeping the trees in a clean condition that reputation will be
maintained, and in a few years
this district will be in the first
rank as a producer of fruit and
vegetables in the Province. We
have the climate; all that is needed is intelligent work.
Half-Way House News
From our own cerrespendent.
The Rev. Mr. Butler extended
his bi-weekly visit to the Half-
Way by spending Monday and
Tuesday as the guest of Mr. and
Mrs. McGillivray. He was an
interested spectator at a riding
exhibition and along with some
others of us showed remarkable
speed in corral climbing.
Mr. French was a visitor at
the Half-Way last week-end and
served up quite an entertainment
in the musical line. His vocal
abilities were greatly admired
and a subject for much praiseworthy comment.
Messrs. J. Martin, inspector
of schools. W. r, Cowell of Ashcroft and W. C. Keeble of Lytton
were among the Half-Way's
weekly guests.
Some people will dodge work,
others will wait until work comes
to them. But when three ladies
will go four miles to wash school
windows, well there—Nuff said.
Victoria, April 13, 1916.
(Special to the Prospector.)
Speaking in the House this afternoon
on the John Place Bill for women's suffrage, Premier Bowser announced lhat
when the Government brought in its
amendments to the Elections Act in
order to provide for votes for soldiers,
it would also bring down a further
amendment to extend the franchise to
women on the same basis as men enjoy
at present. This would beeome effective on Jan. 1st, 1917, if favoured by a
majority vote on a referendum to be
taken at the next general elections.

Mail-Carrier's Difficulties.
Mr. W. W. Jones, postmaster

story of the difficulties he experienced in delivering the mail to
the residents of Bridge River
during the past winter. He
was caught in the snowdrifts at
Mission and was nine days breaking a trail to the summit of the
mountain, where he was compelled to leave his horses from Jan.
22nd to March 28th. He made
several trips to and from Lillooet,
carrying the mail on his back.
All the mail had arrived at Rexmount on April 3rd and was delivered two days afterwards, the
mail-carrier having to maka d
trail three miles long above the
regular road in order to get
the horses through, and had a
large gang of men employed for
a considerable time. He thinks
it will be some time in May before the road will be fit for automobile or wagon traffic.

APRIL H. 1916.
should take this matter up
with haste and vigor. If
this is done we imagine our
transportation difficulties will
disappear as if by magic.
Dun's Review is probably
the best barometer for indicating business conditions of
the Dominion. Its report of
7th inst. is very encouraging.
It shows merchandise, wholesale and retail, as improving
everywhere from Montreal
to Vancouver. Railway earnings and commercial failures
generally indicate the trend
of trade, and on these points
the report is gratifying. The
gross earnings of all Canadian
railroads for March is 30.5
per cent, greater than for the
same month last year, and
the commercial failures number 35 for the week as
against 40 the previous week.
There is, however, one
great impediment to our
progress in B.C.-the want of
transportation facilities by
water. As natural to expect,
this shortage of vessels has
increased the freight rates
enormously. A few weeks
ago a jump was recorded
when rates on lumber to
Australia increased two dol-
lari a thousand. Now the
Shipmasters' Association of
the Pacific Coast announces
another advance—the rate to
Svdney being increased to
$24.00 and to Melbourne
This increase on freight
rates has been foreseen for
some time and an agitation
for home shipbuilding has
been started. But ships cannot be built in a day.
There are thousands of
vessels belonging to Germany
interned in British ports.
Why not utilize some of those
vessels to aid us in our extremity ? There may be in-
ternationi.1 reasons for not
using them for this or any
other purpose, but a nation
like Germany that has so
outraged international reasons might well be ignored
in this connection. If any of
them were torpedoed she
would only be bringing "one
of her own chickens home to
It seems to us that our
present Agent-General, Hon.
Sir Richard,' McBride, who
knows every phase of our
commercial condition as well
probably as any man living,
and* who has on many occasions rendered valuable
service to the Empire—a fact
well known in London—has
a^sjMendid opportunity of
pressing our necessity on the
attention of the home Government. But no matter
how commanding a man's
position may be he needs
support. This support should
be forthcoming immediately.
The press of the  Province
The prospects for Bridge
River the coming season are
far brighter than most
people expect. On all the
properties where work is being done at present the owners are going about it in an
up-to-date manner and are
developing their holdings to
prove what they have. A
few properties are being
opened up thoroughly and the
owners are highly pleased
with the showings so far.
The increased railway facilities will also be of immense
help in getting machinery on
the ground at a much less
expense than formerly.
The future of Bridge River
as a mining district looks exceptionally bright and in a
very short time more attention will be paid to it by outside capitalists owing to the
richness of the yellow metal
in the different sections.
Business is quiet all over
the country, but this will not
last long, and we may look
for greatly increased activity
in the Bridge River district
this summer.

Land Lease Notices
Not oniy interest but real value
attaches to the question of carefully noting the individual performance of each cow in the
herd. It is only after keeping a
complete record that one finds
such a strange contrast as this :
Of two five year old cows in one
herd, both fresh the same day,
both dried off the same week,
one gave 5,454 pounds of milk
and 213 pounds of fat, the other
gave only 3,570 pounds of milk
and 153 pounds of fat. Most
probably the owner would not
have taken on a bet at the beginning of the season that the one
' cow could bring in o/er twenty-
two dollars more than the other,
but she did.
In another section, of two cows
the same age, one gave 8,430
pounds of milk and 362 pounds of
fat, but the other gave only
1,690 pounds of milk and 67
pounds of fat. Is there a difference of eighty-eight dollars in the
earning power of any two cows
in your herd ?
Building up a profitable dairy
herd includes the selection of good
individual .cows. The rational
method is to weigh the milk and
test samples regularly for fat.
Write to the Dairy Division, Ottawa, for information on cow
testing, so that your selection
may be intelligent, so that your
profits may be larger.

Diversion and Use

CANADA from her abundance can help supply the Empire's needs,
and this must be a comforting thought for those upon whom the
heavy burden of directing the Empire's affah-3 has been laid. Gain or
no gain the course before the farmers of Canada is as clear as it was
last year—they must produce abundantly in order to meet the demands
that may te made and I believe this to be especially true in regard to
live stock, the world's supply of which must be particularly affected in
this vast struggle. Stress and strain may yet be in store for us all
before this tragic conflict is over, but not one of us doubts the issue,
and Canadians will do. their duty in the highest sense of. that great
word."—HON. MARTIN DURRELL, Minister of Agriculture.
" TVVTODERN war is made by resources, by money, by foodstuffs, as
■LVJ. weu as by men and by munitions. While war is our first business, it is the imperative duty of every man in Canada to produce all
that he can, to work doubly hard while our soldiers are in the trenches,
in order that the resources of the country may not only be conserved, but
increased, for the great struggle that lies before us. ' Work and Save'
is a good motto for War-time."-S/tf THOMAS WHITE, Minister

Lytton News
From our own correspondent.
Coroner G. B. Baillie held an
inquest Friday, April 7th, on the
body of Fred Boyle, a well-known
rancher of Hat Creek, who was
found unconscious on the C.P.R.
track near Lytton on Monday
evening of last week, and who
afterwards died in the Lytton
hospital. No evidence was forthcoming as to what particular
train was responsible for the
death of Boyle, but it was surmised that it was No. 4, east-
bound. The jury, of which J.
H. Anthony was foreman, brought
in the following verdict: That
deceased came to his death on
the C.P.R. track. No evidence
was given as to how he was
