General  News  of Lillooet
District
His Majesty's Appeal
Mr. A. F. Noel has returned to
the coast.
J. Maher is at his old stand on
the Victoria Hotel staff.
We wondered whether Ford
was—we wonder, no longer.
Ralph Webster is on a visit to
the coast.
Miss Whitehead, nurse at the
hospital, who has been on a visit
to the coast has returned.
Mrs. N. Dupras has sold her
refreshment bar and candy store
and has gone to the coast.
Bert 'Williams and Geo. Gibson
who have been on a visit to the
coast returned this week.
J. M. Walker, of Cincinnati,
who owns mineral properties on
Alexander creek, returned home
this week.
The great trinity is composed
of oxygen, nitrogen and hydrogen. This is the one in three,

broaden into a ledge of pure
gold.— Ledge.
If you know of a thing that will darken
the joy
Of a man or a woman, a girl or a boy,
That will wipe out a smile or the least
way anaoy
A fellow, or cause any gladness to cloy,
It's a pretty good plan to forget it.
"Oh!" exclaimed, the Suffragette fervently, "if the Lord had only made me a
man!"
"Perhaps he did, dear," said the little
widow, soothingly; "but you just haven't
found him yet."
Topsy Turvy Chri-tmas
On Thursday Evening, December 16th, in Santini's Hall, the
Public School Children will give
a Cantata, entitled:
"Topsy Turvy Christmas."
A buffet supper and dance will
follow the performance, for which
a moderate charge will be made,
the funds thus collected to .be
donated to the Red Cross Society.
Help
A Mississippi editor makes this appeal
to delinquent subscribers:
"Fish down into your pockets and dig up
dust. The paper is hungry and the editor
is 'bout bust. We've trusted you for several months and done it with a smile, so
just return the compliment and trust us
for a while. Our wife she needs some
stockings, and baby needs a dress, Jimmy
needs some breeches, and so do Kate and
Bess. Pat is on the hog train and Peggy
sick with grief, and, good gosh almighty,
can't you give a man relief? Shell out
those nickles and turn loose those dimes,
turn 'em loose and whistle, and we'll have
better times. There will be fewer patches
on the bosom of our pants, and we'll
make the paper better if Beebe'd quit the
dance. Don't give us that old story, long
gone to seed, 'bout taking more family
papers than the family want to read; but
help to feed the printer, and he'll help
our town to grow, and thus escape the
sulphur in the regions down below."—Ex,
To The Children
Nowhere, November, 1915
Dear Boys and Girls,
That Christmas Tree is growing.
Watch for it somewhere about
December 23rd.
I shall be with you unless the
Kaiser catches me.

His Honour the Honourable
James Alexander Macdonald, Administrator, directs the publication of the message of His Majesty the King to his subjects
throughout the Empire, as follows:—
"London,
"October 22, 1915
"To my People:
"At this grave moment in the
struggle between my people and
a highly organized enemy who
has transgressed the laws of Nations and changed the Ordinance
that binds civilized Europe together, I appeal to you. I rejoice
in my Empire's effort and I feel
pride in the voluntary response
from my subjects all over the
world who have sacrificed home,
fortune, and life itself in order-
that another may inherit the free
Empire which their ancestors
and mine have built, I ask you to
make good these sacrifices. The
end is not in sight. More men
and yet more men are wanted to
keep my armies in the field and
through them to secure victory
and enduring;peaee, -In ancient
days the darkest moment has ev<
er produced in men of oar taclT
the sterne'st resolve. I ask you
men of all classes to come forward
voluntarily and take your share
in the fight. ;In freely responding to my appeal you will be giving your support to our brothers
who for long months have nobly
upheld Britain's past traditions
and th_ glory of hor arms.
Gkorc-r R.L
HENRY ESSON YOUNG, ."
Provincial .Secretary
Provincial Secretary's Office,
28th October, 1915  ,;
London.—Belief that the time
for the Allies to begin to define
clear and definite terms of peace
is expressed by the Morning Post
in an editorial, on the ground
that there would be less chance
in losing in negociations what
has been gained on the sea and
on the field.
The Post contends that without
"selling the skin before killing
the bear," it may be assumed
victory for the Allies is assured
if only because, without undue
strain, Great Britain could maintain a naval blockade indefinitely
and history has shown that such
pressure alone would, in the end,
secure victory.
The London Daily Chronicle
declares that a great war council,
in which Lord Kitchener and the
leading generals of all the Allies'
forces will take part, is to be held
in Paris, and that this foreshadows the organization of an international staff to direct the future
operations in the war.
Arrangements are now being
made to.supply halibut from Northern British Columbia waters
and haddock from the Atlantic
coast to the Canadian soldiers. It
is also proposed to supply the
Canadian Tommies with supplies
of Canadian grown pork and
beans.

Everybody cordially invited.
Parcel Post
The Department is in receipt
of applications to have parcels
addressed to our soldiers in
France sent free or at reduced
rates of postage, there evidently
being an impression that the Department has control of these
rates and could do as it wished,
but this is not so, as the question
of postage is fixed by International agreement, so that it is
not within the power of the
Canadian Post Office Department
to undertake to carry the parcel-
free or at a reduced rate of postage.
Under International law, provision is made for free transmission of parcels for prisoners of
war, but this privilege does not
extend to parcels for troops engaged in active per vice, nor is it
within the power of the Depart^
ment to so extend it.     ■
The rate of postage required
on parcels addressed to the troops
depends upon the location of the
addressee. If the addressee is in
England, the rnte en parcels for
England applies), which rsftwelve
cents a pound;.whilst, if he is in
France, the parcels are subject
to the-rates anphcable to parcels
for France, which are as follows;
lib 32c 41bs 64c 81bs $1.02
21bs4Cc 51bs72c 91bs  1.10
31bs4Sc OlbsSOc lOlbs  1.18
- 71bs88c' lllbs  1.26
These are exactly the same
charges which existed for years
between Canada, England and
France before the war, and are
the result of an agreement between these countries and Canada, .and as. these countries have
not agreed to lower their rates
between Fmgland and France,
Canada has to pay them the same
rates as before the war and must
charge the same postage.
In all cases parcels for the
troops must be addressed C-o
Army Post Office, London, Eng.,
but this does not in any way affect the rate of postage which
depends entirely upon the location
of the addressee.
Are you unmarried? inquired
the census man.
Oh dear, no, said thejittle lady,
bushing; I've never even been
married.
Nov. 27. —The. death occurred
this morning at Viotoria of Mrs.
Ross, wife of Hon. W. R. Ross,
minister of lands. Her end was
not unexpected by friends as she
had been ailing for a considerable
period. Prior to her marriage,
which took place in October,
1892, Mrs. Ross was Miss Lelia
Young. In addition to her husband she is' survived by two sons
and three daughters. She was
very popular, amongst a large
circle of acquaintances at the
capital.  	
London.—According to a despatch to the Exchange Telegraph
Company from Copenagn, a dozen German papers have been suspended for discussing the food
question.
In his newspaper Die Zukunft,
Maximilian Harden is quoted as
saying:
"We must confess that the
German people for the moment
are suffering great want."
Big Game Hunting
Great as is the fame of Lillooet
as a hunter's Paradise, it would
seem that some of its possibilities
are only just beginning to be
realized.
Shooting game from a safe
distance is o„e thing, but "bearding the lion in his den", or treeing your prey and then toying
with him on the end of a hempen
rope is quite another. But such
is Lillooet's latest lead.
On October 28th a party of
four led by L. Taylor, big game
hunter, of Portsmouth, Ohio,
U.S.A., and consistimg of Henry
Schwartz, Joe Russell, and Tommy Schwartz started from the Victoria hotel, Lillooet, with the object of obtaining specimens of
several of the wild animals for
which this country has been noted for generations.
The party was accompanied by
several fine samples of the Airedale dog. They made for the
Red mountain and Blue mountain
district.
Provisioned for a month or
more, they started with the intention of losing no time in the
endeavor to bag specimens, of AI
grade, . such as are a credit to
sportsmen of the true • nature-
loving type.
Indiscriminate killing was n©
object ©f the party, and. in this
respect the expedition stood out
in pleasing contrast from some of
the animal slaughtering excursions which one hears ofjat times
On November 5th Jpne first
rate specimens of rams,' were secured, and 'later in the vicinity
of China Head Mountain and Lone
Cabin Creek mule deer were bagged. In the Churn Creek district, Lynx, Wolverine, and Coyotes were added to the collection.
The party came across a bunch
of five coyotes, enjoying a meal
off a spring lamb, and two of
these fell to the gun of L. Taylor
Early one morning the tracks
of Mr. Cougar wore located and
the party at once prepared for a
two day's trip, taking all necessary equipment and three Airdales
This fellow, who was evidently"
of good dimensions, was tracked
all day till late in the evening,
and the party camped on his trail,
picking up his track early the
following morning and passing
through very rough country.
At about. 3 p.m. the hunters
came across a two year stag, evidently killed by the big fellow
they were after. The cougar
had had a good meal, and covered up the balance for future
use. At this point the dogs were
released, and at once followed
hot on the scent of the cougar's
trail, catching him up in about
350 yards and treeing him..   •
Lasso ropes having been prepared, Joe climbed with one of
these to a convenient branch on
a tree adjoining thejone in which
the cougar was sheltering, and,
having taken some snapshots of
friend cougar, who was about fa
dozen ft. frem the camera, Henry
and Joe proceeded to cast ropes
and succeeded in securing a foot
and the neck and tightening
them upon him, with the object
of slinging him in the air ever
a tree limb, from which he could
be lowered to the ground
where those below could fix his
feet.
But  like many   "schemes  of

Big Game Hunting

mice and men" the plan was
upset by the decision of the
cougar at this point to take a
serious part in the game.
Slung off his perch, and
hanging in mid air with prospects not too pleasing, Mr.
Cougar made a vicious snap
at the rope, and came crashing down towards the lower
branches, from which he
sprang on' to the tree which
it and by a sharp turn had
evaded the blow, so far as to
confine the damage to his
clothes.
Then matters livened up
and the fun became fast and
furious.
Joe developed marvelous
skill as a football player, the
ball in this case being the
cougar's head.
During a momentary lull
in the game, Joe mildly suggested to the spectators below, that it would not be al-
corroborating these statements during his interview
with the animal.
Wolverine and Lynx were
also taken by ropes, photographed, and killed, the wolverine giving the dogs a long
run.
This entirely new method
of hunting, and possible first
attempt in B.C. at taking
wild animals alive by rope
opens up a fresh era for tne
tourist to these parts.
Mr. Taylor, wno is collecting these specimens in conjunction with five of his co-
directors of the University
of his home town is doing so
with the idea of making use
of them in educational work
and has also obtained while
on this trip, sheep, deer, and
several kinds of birds including grouse.
In his Cassiar trip he obtained specimens of moose,
sheep, cariboo, bear, and fox
Mr. Taylor contemplates a
trip in ihe early spring for
grizzly and black bear, hopes
to come to Lillooet for the
purpose. . He will work under similar conditions taking
four or five men with him.
He expects also to be accompanied by a moving picture outfit; using also two
blood hounds, which are now
doing duty in the Southern
States.
But the Lillooet Trip, let
us repeat, furnished all "Record Specimens."
Henry Schwartz according
to Mr. Taylor proved once
more his ability as a success-
fulguidefor hunters and gave
the greatest satisfaction during the trip.

1 eld Joe, the attitude of the
dogs below (to say the least)
was not too iriendly towards
this mountain cat, and he
realizing this decided to visit
Joe at the tree top, for which
visit Joe prepared with more
or less mixed feelings, having nothing to take with him
to the other world but a clear
conscience and some pictures
of his would-be slayer. As
Joe watched this nine foot
cat springing from limb to
limb and making his way
upwards towards him, he
said a few things and thought
a few more things, which he
has strictly forbidden us to
publish—and we refrain.
Up came cougar in tearing
rage and with one mighty
swipe, which was intended to
be the end of "poor old Joe",
he ripped pants, sock, and
shoe from the right leg of
the object of his vengeance,
this performance, carried out
with a paw about the size of
a baseball mitt, was comparatively mild, on account of
the fact that Joe, while realizing that his right leg would
be duly appreciated as a dainty morsel, had other uses for
together out of place to fire
a shot "with intent" at the
cougar.
The suggestion was promptly acted upon by the hunter
below and a shot, aimed at
the cougar's pimple, missedr
hitting the tree and sending
splinters into his face. The
cougar, appreciating the fact
that this little attention was
meant for him personally,
hurled himself from the tree
and, falling to the ground in
his endeavor to reach his first
tree, was persued by the
Airedales for about seventy-
five vards, treed again, and
finally shot by Taylor, the
dogs taking charge and looking after the "last rites."
we understand that Joe
has since come down, and
has changed his soiled garments.
This was the first cougar
ever roped in the Province of
B.C. He measured 9 feet
from tip to tip and weighed
200 pounds.
Altogether one of our finest specimens and Joe assures
his friends that he fully appreciates this fact having had
unequalled opportunities of
