 LILLOOET PROSPECTOR
VOL./, NO. 24
LILLOOET,  B.C., APRIL, 13,. 1917.
PROVINCIAL AND GENERAL
During the week ending March
25, 2314 ships 1000 tons net arrived at ports in the United
Kingdom, according to an official
statement. During the same
period 2433 vessels of over 100
tons net sailed from ports in the
United Kingdom. These figures
are exclusive of fishing vessels
and local shipping.
James Murphy, an Ashcroft
Lawyer, and a brother of Mr.
Justice Murphy, has been employed by the Brewster Government at a cost of $645 to draw up
and advise upon new water rights
legislation, according: to answers
which have been filed to questions
asked the government by James
H. Schofield, member for Trail.
Congratulations are being freely expressed in London to Sir
Thomas White on the success of
the third Canadian War loan.
"It. is not in the least surprising," says the Times, "though
none the less gratifying to the
Mother Country. The Empirejs
proud indeed .to find Canadian finances going from strength to
strength during the war."
Canada's yield of potatoes last
year totaled 61,229,000, against
62,605,000 bushels in 1915. The
1916 exports were valued at
$1,424,519, compared with $506,-
302 in 1915. The ground sown
to potatoes last year was 449,000
acres, or 30,000 smaller than in
1915.' Last 136.21 bttStwfct'cUifi-
pared with 130.85 in 1915.
Exports from the United
States for the period from the
beginning of the war to the end
of last January amounted to
$3,026,327,000, according to the
table compiled by The Journal of
Commerce from the reports of
Department of Commerce. This
includes shipments of articles
used directly on the battle line,
those particularly devoted to war
uses behind the front, and the
articles of export trade which
are utilized in the manufacture
of war munitions abroad.
The prosperous condition of
Chile has lately been manifested
in various ways. The number
of depositors in the National Savings Bank has increased during
1916 by 16.aper cent, over 1915,
this gain in deposits amounting
to about $3,000,000 United Stater
currency. The situation of national finances has been most satisfactory. The annual defict,
which had become almost traditional, was changed in 1916
into a surplus, and the defict of
the previous year was reduced to
the extent of $10,000,000.
The fight to have naturalized
Orientals given the right of franchise in British Columbia is on
again. K. Uchiyama announces
that their solicitor, Sir Charles
Hibbard Tupper, has written to
Hon M. A. Macdonald, Attorney-
General, regarding the matter.
Uchiyama states that 2,000 Japanese that have become naturalized Canadians have no further
claim on the Japanese consul and
therefore feel that the y should
have a right to vote so far as to
have some say in the making of
laws that govern them. He says
further that the Japanese were
ready to fight for Great Britain
and that when refused they went
East and enlisted and one of
them won the Victoria Cross.
DEATH   AT  JAIAAHiKT
The hand of death was on Sunday last, April 8th at 11.15
a.m.. laid upon Lillooet and Cariboo's most highly esteemed pioneer and citizen, in the person of Mr. Mark Eagleson.
Mr. Eagleson (more intimately known to his many friends
as "Mark"), was born at Newcastle, Ontario, in the year I860.
After a tour West he, for a short period lived in Montana,
from which place he came to Cariboo in the spring of '84. He
was one of the first white men to come down the Fraser River
in a canoe during the famous Cariboo Gold excitement, and for
some time during the rush, freighted on the Cariboo road. He
went to Alaska in '87 and returned to Cariboo in '89. Since
that time he has been prominent in "up country" ranching and
real estate development and has extensive mining interests in
the Bridge River-district of Lillooet. For many years he was
the proprietor of hotels at Hat Creek, Clinton, and Lillooet,
and many are the prospectors who can testify to his open and
generous heartedness, for he was always ready and willing to
assist any who were endeavoring to open up our vast resources,
and to those who should happen'to be down on their luck, his
was an ever open door. j
As a staunch Liberal he did much to advance the interest of
the Party, and from 1905—1909 he sat in the Provincial Legislature as member for Lillooet,    (
On Tuesday evening the body was reverently interred at
the Lillooet Cemetery, the service at the graveside being preceded by the burial service in St. Mary's Anglican Church, read
by the Revd. Archdeacon Pugh, of Lytton. (
The large number of those who assembled at the Church
and Cemetery in connection with the burial, testifies to the esteem in which the deceased was held. The procession from the
Church to the graveside was the largest ever seen in Lillooet
on such an occasion,
Beautiful flowers from loved ones and friends were laid on
the coffin, among which were wreaths from: —Mrs. Dougherty.
Mr. and A. R. Gibb, Mr. and Mrs. G. Miller, Mr. J. McGillivray,
all of Vancouver; The Dunlop Family, of Lillooet; Mrs. Patterson, of Seton Lake; Mr. and Mrs. Phair, and Messrs P. B.
Lewis & H, G, Walker, of Lillooet.
The relatives who were present are:--'Mrs. Dougherty, of
Vancouver; Mr. and Mrs. Ed, Dougherty,   of Bonaparte;  Mr.
and Mrs. Chas. Dougherty, of Maiden Creek; Mr. and Mrs. A.
R7 G1hb"5and;"Mtss-0, Peters, 'of Vaii-eower; Mrsr Pollard, of.
Clinton.
Among the many oldtimers and friends who paid their last
respects to the departed were:- C. A. Semlin (ex-Premier), of
Cache Creek; D. A. Stobbart, ex-M.P.P., of Clinton; J. B. Bryson, of Pavilion; Philip Park, of Ashcroft; C. W. McGee, of
French Bar; H. P. Horan, of Clinton; D. D. Cullen, of Clinton;
T. Barton, of Clinton; E. E. Bell, of Clinton; P. Garigan, of Pavilion; G. Carson, of Pavilion.
Pall Bearers:— J. Dunlop, D. Hurley, S. Gibbs, H. Keary,
D. MacDonald and W. Adams, all of Lillooet.
Telegrams of condolence and sympathy are arriving from all
parts of the Province among which is one from the Hon. H. C.
Brewster, Premier of B.C.
A good citizen, a good husband, and a good fellow has passed from our midst, and by way of expression of this sentiment
the Town had its Flag flying half-mast.
The sympathy of the town and the many friends goes out
to the Bereaved, the widow and her son Jack (who is at present
in Flanders with the 102nd Battalion, C.E.F.) May they be
supported in their time of trouble by the thought that "Earth
has no sorrow that Heaven cannot heal."
Mr. and Mrs. Prosser left for
Pavilion on this morning's train.
Geo. Bell and J. Seward arrived
in town last evening.
Gardening is now the order of
the day.
W. Haylmore is very busy get-
ing ready for the planting of the
garden truck.
W. A. Smith, rancher of Lytton
Road, spent a few days in town
this week.
The Revd. Archdeacon Pugh,
of Lytton, arrived in town on
Tuesday. He was accompanied
by Mrs. Pugh and Miss Wilkinson
Messrs Wm. G. Duguid, Wm.
Durban, B. S. Swanson, and

! Mark R. Eagleson.

Until recently British Columbia
herring was little used except as
bait for halibut fishing. The
Wallace Fisheries, Ltd.,- have
been experimenting with this
fish, and Vice-Consul G. C.Woodward of Vancouver reports that
this season they have packed
22,000 cases in various ways,
such as kippers and in tomato
sauce and oil.
$2 PER YEAR
PROVINCIAL AND GENERAL
Mr. Thomas A. Walsh of New
Westminster, a returned soldier,
has secured the Canadian patents
for the manufacture and distribution of "Draftite." This handy
little invention deals effectively
with the problem of preventing
drafts underneath doors, a strip
of rubber which moves up and
down sealing up any space between the door and the floor.
The first carload of gold-bearing quarts ever shipped from
Manitoba went out to Trail smelter recently, ft was shipped
ed from Northern Manitoba Mining & Development Company at
Herb Lake near The Pas. It is
the intention of the Company to
ship out ore all summer. A syndicate of Eastern capitalists have
invested $10,000,000 in copper interests at The Pas.
The gold production of the
British Empire since the early
eighties placed at £1,340,000,000
in a combination made by the
London Statist. Of this sum
£567,500,000 was produced ia Africa, £657,000,000 in Australia,
£65,000,000 in Canada, and £50,
000,000 in India. This journal
also estimates the production of
the United States since the days
of 1894 at £779,000,000. The
world's gold production for 1916
is estimated at £95,725,000. The
countries forming part of the
British Empire contributed in
1916 just two- thirds of the world's
ouAput of that^year...  . ,_,.
Vancouver. —■ Local 'regiments will
make an annonncement shortly regarding the men required for home guard
duty. Two regiments have already
asked for their quota of meii, and others will fall in line. It was stated by a
local military official yesterday that
while the home guard service would be
voluntrry. recruiting would be carried
on on a big scale, and an appeal made
to men to join without delay and thus
render adequate protection to the country in the absence of overseas units.
The feeling among local military men
is that once the home guards see the
benefit of the drill they receive and get
a more active and sympathetic outlook
on military affairs, many of them will
join the ranks of overseas forces.

MARK EAGLESON
Large was his bounty and his soul sincere;
Heaven did a recompense as largely send;
Thomas Gray.
As we stood by the grave
of our old friend Mark Eagleson our feelings regarding
him might be summed up in
the above lines of Thomas
Grey, taken from his immortal " Elegy in a Country
Churchyard." For Mr'.
Eagleson, known by all his
friends as "Mark'' waslarge-
souled and generous above
everything else.
Physically a fine example
of the sturdy pioneer, tall
and strong in his prime, be
was carved out for tha strenuous life of the North-West;
and had worthily contributed
his share in the hard struggle with nature's forces,
when men were braving untold dangers in their search
for wealth.
Well is it that he spent his
last days and was laid to rest
amid the rugged grandeur of
our mountains. Well is it
that the Old Cariboo Road,
which knew him as he knew
it, is not far distant from his
last earthly resting place.
Well is it that the little knoll,
which serves as Lillooet's
' 'God's Acre" should overlook
the mighty Fraser River,
turbulent here, peaceful and
navigable there, winding its
way now among threatening
and awe-inspiring masses of
hard forbidding rock, now
flowing gently through verdure-clad fields of beauty to
be at last absorbed in the illimitable Pacific. Such are
our lives. Such undoubtedly
was the life of our highly respected citizen, Mark Eagleson.
We feel with John Green-
leaf Whittier:—
Even so in our mortal journey
The bitter north-winds blow
And thus upon life's Red River
Our hearts, as oarsmen, row.
And when the Angel of Shadow
Rests his feet on wave and shore,
And our eyes grow dim with watching,
And our hearts faint at the oar.
Happy is he who heareth
The signal of his release
In the bells of the Holy City,
The chimes of eternal peace!
While the hand of death
has been laid at a comparatively early age upon our
friend, and the sorrowing
widow and son are called upon to part, from a devoted
husband and father, yet there
is solid comfort in the realization that he who has been
laid to rest is not dead, but
lives in a true and noble
sense, in that Jack his son is
fighting in the World-War.
He lives to fight the enemy
of freedom and thus perpetuate the spirit of which his
father was possessed. Here
' is immortality indeed.
Let us leave the picture as
we saw it at the graveside.
Many, many friends from
far and near former colleagues in the B.C. Legislature, of which the honored
dead was a worthy member
years back; his fellow citizens of Lillooet; women of
the town and district who
had valued his friendship;
and children, whom he loved
-all were there, a record
funeral assemblage for our
Town to do him honour in
death.

THE PRESIDENT'S SPEECH
Seldom has so much interest been excited in any public utterance of a statesman
as has been the case with regard to the recent great
speech of President Wilson
on the meeting of the Special
session of Congress. In an
effort of that kind the speaker places himself — so to
speak—in competition with
historic occasions and historic men. It must be gratifying
to citizens of the republic to
the south of us, to feel that
the man who holds the highest office in the gift of the
nation is capable of an oratorical effort which will
match anything ever delivered by previous Presidents.
For a direct statement of
the matter in hand, for a
careful restraint of mere
rhetoric, and for emphasizing of the cogent points at
issue, the speech will no
doubt be quoted in future
years as one of the best specimens of American political
speaking.
Something more than oratory, however, was needed
on the occasion of that fateful meeting ofCongress, and
it is satisfactory that the
true significance of the speech
lay in its facts rather than in
its form. It was a declaration of the most emphatic
nature that from this time
forth until the war is ended,
the great forces and influence
of the United States are lined
up with the Entente Allies.
The recognition of the
President that he can best
give the Allies immediate
help by making financial
contributions shows a practical sense that the entente
will appreciate. With characteristic vehemence the
American people are throwing themselves into the conflict, and we may now consider that from the Arctic
circle to the most southerly
border of the Southern
States, this continent is now
practically solid for the wiping out of the iniquitous
Hohenzollerns.
