B.C. Crop Reports for 1915
The Dominion Agricultural Gazette contains the following crop
report for 1911 for British Columbia, prepared by A. B. Tweddle,
assistant statistician.
The province readily responded
in 1915 to the slogan, "Patriotism and Production," issued by
the Fereral Department of Agriculture, Ottawa, resulting on the
whole in an increased area of
field crops, and particularly in
grains. Crop yields, production
of live stock, and by-products, in
most instances show an even
greater proportionate increase.
Despite the fact that prices in
all cases, except cattle and fruits,
have ruled lower, and the production of swine, poultry, eggs and
vegetables, was below 1914, the
province is able to show an increase in the .value of total production.
Grains show « very substantial
increase in area, while yields exceeded 1914 over 30 per cent. Although prices averaged 20 per
cent, lower than 1914, the total
value is greater. The standard
was excellent, due in no gmall
measure to education among the
growers in proper seed selection
and improved methods of cultivation.
Hay decreased somewhat in
area, having given way to the increased area in grains, yet yields
were aboye normal, and quality
excellent, owing to ideal curing
weather. Prices averaged 14
per cent, below 1914.
Vegetables varied little in area
from 1914. Yields in the Eastern section were aboye normal,
yet, owing to extremely dry weather during the growing period
in the coast sections, and where
50 per centof the production of
the province usually occurrs,
yields were reduced over 40 per
cent, below normal, resulting in
a decrease in the total production
for tbe province.
The fruit crop stands prominent as the most satisfactory one
during 1015. for not only did orchard yields exceed 1914 by 10
per cent, but the value increased over 60 per cent., which is
most encouraging to growers.
Increased yields may be attributed to the extensive area of young
orchards now rapidly coming into
bearing, which comprises nearly
70 per cent, of the total area.
There has been a most satisfactory natural increase in all hoof
stock except hogs, in which case,
as well as that of poultry, la»*ge
numbers were forced on a market at consequent low prices, owing to the prohibitive cost of feed
during the earlier part of the
yf»ar. Despite lower prices of
all _to:k except cattle, the total
value shows an increase over
1914.
Marked increased attention has
been centered on both beef and
dairy cattle breeders aiming to
increase their herds and improve
the standard at every opportunity, Dairy cattle have increased
in the year 35 to 40 per cent.
Exceptional numbers of beef cattle have found their way to British Columbia markets, while a
most favorable grazing season in
range sections resulted, as pronounced by dealers, in a most excellent quality of beef.
A point well worthy of note is
a decrease of over 35 per cent, in
the value of agricultural food
products imported into the pro-

A Mining Review
J.P'Si WEEKLY
Lillooet, situated as it is, would
make an ideal training camp for
overseas forces.
Mr. and Mrs, Halliday left for
coast cities this week via Lytton
and the C.P.R.
Mr. Ralph Webster, who has
been at the coast for the past two
months, returned this week.
D. Collins left for the coast
last Sunday morning by way of
Lytton.
Mr. J. K. More, road sperin-
tendent, and J. K.> McLean of
Clinton, were in Lillooet for a
few days this week.
It is with regret that we learn
that Miss Reed has lost a brother
in Egypt. He was killed in. a
receiit engagement there.
Seton Lake is now frozen over
from the nine mile point to the
Portage. Quite a number of the
Portage residents are u6ing their
skates.
It's an ill wind that blows nobody any good. "Pete," the
Lillooet-Lytton mail coach driver
is getting the passeuger traffic
these days.
For the past few weeks the
birds have had great difficulty in
getting food from the ground.
There are many birds which have
not been taught, either by nature
or experience, to meet these new
conditions, and it would be a
merited kindness if We would
save a few crumbs daily and
scatter them over a clean swept
area in some place so that our
feathered friends may not starve.
Editorially Speaking
Some people were surprised by
a huge front; page head-line in
last Sunday's edition of the Seattle Times which announced that
New York was now ahead of
London in size and population.
Figures were given but as they
were inaccurate they are not
worth quoting. New York may
some day pass London but its future growth cannot be at the
same rate as in the recent past.
Between 1890 and 1900 the American metropolis annexed every
Community within reach with the
result that its area quadrupled
and its population increased from
a million and a half to four millions. The present population of
all the district that may be considered dependent on New York
is nearly six and a half millions.
But London's "outer ring" enclosed more than seven and a
half millions five years ago. And
outside the "outer ring" but still
essentially part of London there
are many large communities
whose aggregate population must
be at least two million. —Yale
Review.
vince from other Canadian provinces during 1915, as compared
with 1914, which represents a
most important financial saving
to British Columbia since imports
from the above sources amounted
to some $19,000,000 in 1914, and
in no small measure brings before the people the real value of
the slogan, "Patriotism and Production."
The Annual Mining number of
the Nelson Daily News is a comprehensive review of the mining,
lumbering and general industrial
and trade conditions of British
Columbia with particular reference to the Kootenay and Boundary regions. One of - the interesting features for the business
man are the articles contributed
by Boards of Trade and civic authorities, in which two points
stand out prominently: The
marked improvement which has
taken place in general conditions
throughout the southern interior
during the past year, and the excellent prospects for betterment
in the year just closed. All of
British Columbia will,benefit from
the progress in the developement
of the resources of these rich
mining regions and the greater
industrial activity in other lines
as lumbering;-'; : ,
In the preliminary estimate of
the mineral production of British
Columbia in 1915. the output is
recorded as the third highest
yearly total in the history of mining in the province. The estimated total is placed at $29,703,-
000. If this is borne out by the
returns received at the end of
the year from the various producers, then the value of last
year's output will be larger by
about $3,314,000 than that of
19J.4. but smaller than that of
1012—the year of high record-
by $2,737,000.
Copper leads in production, the
value being $9,909,000, while lode
gold comes next with a value of
$5,326,000. Had it, not been for
the land slide at Britannia, the
report states, copper production
might have reached 60,000,000
pounds instead of 10,000,000 lbs.
The biggest output of copper was
22,000,000 pounds,from Granby's
Hidden Creek mine, near Obesr-
vatory Inlet, Coast Dufc'rict Silver production of 3,660,000 ozs.
is the greatest in thirteen years.
Nearly 60 per cent, of the total production of minerals in the
province is. in the Kootenay and
Boundary, which is the reason
for the improved business conditions throghout the southern
interior despite the prevailing
depression.
Hell's Gate
The obstuction at the above
place is said to be the cause of
the scarcity of salmon in this
part of the Fraser river. If this
is true, and we have good reason
to believe it is, it is the duty of
the officials to have this obstruction removed. The water is low
and NOW is the time to get
busy.
W. Kane was in town this week
for a load of supplies,
There is some talk of another
"mail day from Lytton," but so
far it has not materialized.
Frank Gott started out this
week with the mail for Pemberton but owing to the trail being
bad he discarded the hand sleigh
at the Portage and packed the
mail from there on.

I verily believe that inanimate
things sometimes enter into the
spirit of a festal occasion. "I
know it. Last night when I was
going to a blowout my automobile
chimed in with a couple of its
own."
"Ma'am, here's a man at the
door with a parcel for you."
"What is it Bridget?"
"It's fish, ma'am, and it's

"Then tell the man to take it

A mother sent this somewhat
satirical note to the teacher of
her small son:
"Pardon me for calling your

other. Please pull his left ear

The Light That Failed.
The shades of night were falling fast, for the ladies of Bost-
ing were changing their gowns,
for dinner.
A solitary cyclist, a benighted
stranger from Chicago, was ped-
daling ponderously down Beans
boulevard when Ira Dumbell,
Bosting's next to the oldest inhabitant, courteously attracted
his attention by standing in the
middle of the boolevard with out-
stetched arms.
"What's up?" asked the solitary cyclist, reining in his steed.
"Why, as to that-the sky,
and, in fact, the complete planetary firmament," replied the native politely. "But I arrested
your locomotion to acquaint you
with the phenomemon that your
beacon has ceased its function."
"Come again."
"I thank you, sir. Perhaps I
shall. But as I animadverted,
your illuminator is shrouded in
unmitigated oblivion. In ether
words, the affulgence of your irradiator has evanesced."
Just as the solitary cyclist had
his mouth seven-eights open te
call for the man's keepers a small
boy from Philadelphia passing
yelled: "Hey, mister, yer lamp's
out"
"It's a wonder you wouldn't
a-told me that," said the solitary
cyclist reproachfully to the native, as he lighted up and pedalled over Ira Dumbell's toes. THE PROSPECTOR

Commenting upon the outcome of the war, the New
York Tribune puts the matter very clearly when it says
that there can be no thought
of peace in Paris, London or
Petrograd while a German
soldier remains on Belgian
soil, because the real issue,
the great, all-important issue, of the war is Belgium.
While a German soldier remains on Belgian soil Germany is still an outlaw among
the nations; she is a criminal
to be hunted, a creature beyond the pale and outside
the frontiers of common humanity    The    invasion   of
Belgium was a breach in the
wall of all human law and
all that mankind has believed
was divine right.   It was an
act criminal, base, beyond all
that human tongue can describe, and that act makes it
impossible for all the nations
who claim to be fighting for
humanity and civilization to
think of peace.
The German invasion of
Belgium was a challenge to
all races. It was an appeal
to brute force, to violence, to
murder and to what is worse
than murder, by a race which
by that act repudiated all
that civilization and humanity have achieved in the years
that extend from barbarism
to our own time.
To the first crime, the invasion of rights and liberties,
there, were promptly added
other crimes far more terrible. Let no American forget
at this time the murdered
and dishonored women and
children of Louvain, of Aei?*
schot, of Malines, the crimes
that filled the world with
their enormity and will remain a lasting blot upon the
Teutonic race. Let no American, moved by pity now for
the suffering in Germany,
which is great and will presently be far greater, seek to
Serve the the cause of peace
while Prussian garrisons still
persist upon Belgian soil.
There can be no thought
of peace, and there should be
no thought of peace, while
the Germans hold Belgium to
ransom. The struggle that
has gone on in Europe for
eighteen months is not a battle of rival nations and jealous peoples. It is a defence
of mankind and liberty by all
men against a German assault.   German success, the

smallest. profit retained by
Prusia in consequence of her
crime, would be at once a reproach and a menace; it
would be for Prussia an incentive to new violence, to
the world an open wound and
another Alsace-Lorrane.
There can be no peace and
no thought of peace until the
German armies have repassed
the Belgian frontier,   until
they have gone with nothing
but there broken ranks and
mountain, high casualty lists
to show for their offending.
It is not necessary that Germany should be ravaged; it
is not essential to human happiness that there be repeated
m Cologne or in Berlin what
happened in Louvain or in
Rheims.   It is not for more
brutality that the world cries
out.   But it is essential that
there shall be no reward, or
profit, no gain to the Germans for their brutal crimes.
Peace is not merely a thing
impossible, but a thing undesirable for Europe, for America, while Germans are left
in a position to tyrannize over any people or any race.
The Belgians, the Serbs, the
people of Alsace - Lorraine—
they must be freed.     But
the case of Belgium is vital.
Had Germany fought a war
as in 1870, had she struck as
before, all mankind would
today feel tor the Germans
admiration and sympathy-
admiration for their bravery
and for their great military
achievements, sympathy for
their   sufferings.    Instead,
there is a great and general
loathing, which is worldwide,
and passes in intensity anything in human history.
The time has come in the
Great War when right and
justice and humanity are to
be vindicated. German defeat is already a thing that
can be disguised only from
the careless and the thoughtless. For the whole German
people the war has become
an agony and a nightmare,
and there is left hardly a
home that does not feel the
cost in life and suffering of
the dream of world empire
and the lust for supremacy.
A few more months and
then there will be no shadow
of a doubt anywhere as to
the situation in Europe or as
to the outcome of the war.
Germany has been defeated
and in ner sufferings she is
now turning eagerly toward
[peace.
That peace should be desired by all men, but not until it is possible to procure
a peace that will be a settlement, not until it is possible
to write a peace which for
generations hereafter will remain as a warning to those
who seek to set aside the
laws of humanity, and because they are strong to
trample in the mire and ashes the weak, the women and
the children.   No such peace

the German speaks as masters in King Albert's land.
We learn to love by loving. It
grows by love. Like everything
else, it gathers strength through
exercise. The more we keep at
it, the easier and mere natural it
becomes. We can form the habit of looking at people with love,
think about them with love,
speak of them in love, and act toward them lovingly. Our deeds
Will react upon our thoughts,
and our thoughts and our feelings will prompt to action. So
we may become steeped in love.
It will radiate from us as the
light from the lamp. We shall
be charged with it as the battery
is charged with electricity aad,
power will go out from us. So,
instead of crying idly, "On, for
more love!" let us lay more stress
upon the practise. If we continually use what we have it will increase. -Home Circle,
