 THE PROSPECTOR
VOL.yg, NO. 21
LILLOOET, B. C, FRIDAY, MARCH 19, 1915.
$2 PER YEAR
Half-Way House News
Our readers will be pleased to
hear that Jimmy W7atkinson of
the Forster's Bar Ranch is gradually recovering from the unfortunate accident in which his
shoulder was seriously injured.
Being quite past the convalescent
stage his genial countenance
lightens the doorsteps of his sympathising neighbors; for he is
now proving that outdoor strolls
with Dame Nature have their desired effect towards progress.
Everybody is busy on the Rosebank farm. New fences and
kind clearing add more beauty
and a most prosperous outlook to
its already progressive appearance. Under the able management and careful! attention of the
ranch owners their extensive
orchard predicts a bumper crop
and a valley record for fruit raising.
Miller and Johnson are busy
practicing on the drums, so as to
he ready for the 1st of July celebrations at Lillooet. Let us hope
they beat their way to prosperity
Jack Maher of 21-mile ranch
is making a fine showing in clearing up his place—Jack is certainly  doing  his share towards im
proving this district.
The blacksmith shop at the 24
mile ranch has been doing plenty
of business lately. Freddy Watkinson having shod eleven horses
on Tuesday.
Chas. McGillvary is putting in a
larger acreage this season than
ever before. He is sowing oats
and planting garden at time of
writing.
Ralph Ruddick was a visitor at
the half-way yesterday, Ranny is
talking of enlisting in the 3rd
contingent.
The school children are advancing rapidly in their studies under
the able tutorship of Mr. Bu-
channan.
Farmers Responing To
An Empire Problem
Within the next few weeks the
farmers of Canada will be engaged upon the work of seeding
the greatest acreage which has
ever been given over to the production of grain in the history of
the Dominion. While statistics
portraying the actual increase in
area will not be given until the
federal authorities at Ottawa compile in the late spring the reports
from their correspondents on
work done, the findings of investigations which have already been
completed point clearly to the
conclusion that the additions
thoiughout the Western provinces, at least, will be very considerable in extent. Officials of the
Canadian Northern recently finished a survey of fall plowing a-
lbng the lines of the company in
Manitoba, Saskatcewan and Al-
uerta. The figures which were
sent in, of course, deal with the
C.N.R. only, but they may betaken as an indication of the manner
in which farmers west of the
Great Lakes have responded to
the call for a greater production
of food stuffs in Canada. Five
hundred and thirty-nine agents
contributed to the report in order
that it would be thoroughly representative of the territory served
Altogether, along the Canadian
'THE   BUSKERS."
It was a Sunday afternoon
And all was calm and still.
As I homeward wended my wearv way
To the "Half-way" by the hill.
Whils't looking upon it'a beauty
That so appealed to me,
I was suddenly awakend, (form my day
dreams
By a voice calling "Out, Strike 3."
Gone was the calm, a storm arose
Of protests all around,
Fore there behind the Halfway House
Was the battlefield, a baseball ground.
You talk about your movies
Your burlesque show and play,
But none of these can be compared
To what I saw that day.
Batter up, the local captain cried
Harry slipped up to the bat,
Displaying plenteous mussle
Likewise many pounds of fat.
Pitcher Bill from the twenty mile
A pitcher bold and free,
Was winding up his mighty arm
To strike out poor Harry.
He threw and Harry struck
With all his force and might,
And knocked the ball up in the air
T'was almost out of sight.
A mighty cheer rose from his side
As the runner raced around,
The first, second, and third
Where, he fell panting on the ground.
Brother Ralph was next in turn
So he took up the stick,
And bunted out to second B
Where it was caught by Nick.
Tommy slipped into his place
And twice mere the spheviod flew,\
But Tom igno.ed it, so
The umpire said "Strike two."
The next one was a dandy /
And Tommy gained first place,
While Harry came home smiling
From his position on third base.
One run, one out, the umpire said
But to that was added quick,
The result of the next performer
Who, by-the-way, was Little Dick.
Now things were looking brighter
To the boys of the twenty mile,
While on the face of Ernest the catcher
There appeared a radiant smile.
Angus the star of the home team
Went next to swing the club,
But he must have got the pitchers goat
For a ball caught him on the hub.
While he walked to first base
Mid'st the yelling and the  cant,
The next was Buck who drove the ball
To "Miller and Johnson's camp."
However it was short lifed, for
As Buck was doing "ten flat,"
Ernie put out Tommy, as
He came home on the last lap.
As this was the last innings
I enquired what the score might be,
The umpire kindly me
The result was 12 to 3.
Then Tommy started in cheering
Also Harry, Ralph, and Mutt,
Angus chimed in, also Jim
And last, but not least, did Buck.
But this won't freeze the brothers
Of the   Kane boys numbers two,
Neither George or Nick, likewise Dick
Or Malcolm of Highland Dhue.
So hats off to the Halfwayites
Who wiped out their defeat,
That was given them by the Kane boys
In the play of last week.
War Gleanings
The German cruiser Dresden
was sunk in the early part of the
week.
Lendon — The regular semi-
weekly report on the progress of
the war was given out by the
British authorities, and extracts
read:—Operations in the neighborhood of Neuve have been continued. A skillfully executed
enterprise to the east of Armen-
tieres resulted in the capture of
the village ofLepinette with small
losses. The possession of this
village advanced our line in this
in this quarter 300 yards on a
front of 800 yards wide.
Although many counter attacks have been made, in no cases
did they succeed in recapturing
any of the ground they lost.
Judging from the number of
dead on the ground the total German losses during the operations
from March 10 to 13 on the
Neuve Chapelle can not be less
than 17,000 or 18,000.
The Royal Flying corps secured
further successes during the past
few days although the fog at
times interfered materially with
their work. On March 12 the
railroad junctions at Don and
Douai were attacked witk bombs
and damaged, and on March 13
a train in the Don station was
blown up.
Paris, March 16—Several batteries of Turkish field artillery
posted above Kum Kale at the
entrance to the Dardanelles were
discovered and silenced by British war ships after a bombardment Sunday says a special despatch from Athens.
General Steele is to have charge
of the second expeditionary force
from the Dominion.
Belgian troops profiting by a
slight recession of the waters in
the Nieport distinct carried two
German advance positions. The
first was at Kloosterhoak farm
near Stuvekenskerke, while the
second was a line of trenches on
the road from Pervyse.
Northern lines in the prairie provinces the increase may be averaged at 40 per cent.
The figures give a total acreage
plowed last fall of 6,181,375 acres.
This is an increase of 1,767,108
acres over the preceeding year.
Figured at 21.38 bushels to the
acre—the flat average of the
yield in western provinces in 1914
for wheat, oats, and barley -the
grain yield from fall plowed lands
along the C.N. in Manitoba. Sas-
continued on Page 4
Rome—A statement made here
on good authority states that with
in a fortnight Italy's attitude
will be changed. An imposing
popular demonstration urging intervention was held in Milan.
The crowds gathered in the cathedral square singing patriotic
hymns and shouting "Down with
Austria!" The troops and police
were powerless to disperse the
crowd. A few socialists who
shouted "Long live Neutrality,"
narrowly escaped lynching.
Tommy Alford and Pearl Mays
left here this for Alberta; it is
thuir intention to become farmers
on the large scale. May every
success attend their efforts.
Miss M. Hurley left town last
Saturday on an extended visit
to the coast cities; we understand
it is her intention to visit the
Panama exposition.
The local baseball club have
issued a challenge to all neighboring teams. Now boys get
after th*m.
Mr. Burkholder, J. P. is a visitor to town this week, and is accompanied by his son Harold ;
everything is progressing favorably at the North fork.
Mr. A. F. Noel arrived here
during the past week from the
coast.
The Lillooet and Rancherie
baseball teams came together last
Sunday in a friendly game. After five closely contested innings,
Lillooet won by ten runs to nine.
The attendance was large considering the state of the weather.
The fielding on either side was
not very brillant but showed class
for the first work out. A return
game will be staged for Sunday.
General  News   of Lillooet
District
A petition is going the rounds
these days to prevent an Indian
named August from depriving
Frank Mechelle of the ranch he
has been working for a number
of years.
The visitors to Lillooet from
the coast cities are gradually increasing, and before long we expect to see quite a number arrive
daily.
Where can you beat Lillooet
for climatic conditions.
Some of the 'boyhoys' don't
yer know, celebrated the 17th of
March this week—we understand
that a generally good time was
spent by all.
The banks in Nelson have start,
ed paying out copper coin,
Compartively all the men who
are living here, and are willing
to work, have been employed on
the Govenment road work. There
are three gangs including the one
working on the new road to the
depot.
For Sale—Indian Runner Duck
Eggs for setting, $1.00 per 15.
H. Ruddock, The Grange, Lytton
Home is a comfortable and necessary retreat and shelter for us
in advanced age, if we do not
plant it while young it will give
us no shade when we grow old.
—Lord Chesterfield.
Don't get your ideas of married life altogether from the comic weeklies, young man.
Tommy Hurley and Ray Four-
nier had an accident last Saturday which might have proved
serious but fortunately did not.
They were on their way to the
lake on Hurley's motorcycle
when running at a moderate rate
of speed, ran into a dog which
upset the machine and threw
the passengers onto the road.
The machine falling on Tommy's
leg bruised it while Ray had to
visit a clothing store.
She entered the department
store and complained about a
lamp she had purchased, demanding that it be taken back.
"What's the matter with it,
madam ?" ' T t has the faults of
my husband with none of his
virtues."
"Please explain yourself."
"Well, it has a good deal of
brass about it, it is not remarkably brilliant, requires a great
deal of attention, is unsteady on
its legs, flares up occasionally,
is always out at bedtime, and is
bound to smoke."
Not a little excitement was in
evidence on Tuesday evening,
when quite suddenly, out on the
stilly night came fearful gutteral
sounds with spasmodic yells, as
of someone being strangled. At
first even the most brave of the
listeners were dumbfounded, but
eventually recovered and with a
dash made for the scene of
slaughter, only to find that a
travelling musician, supposed to
belong to a neighbouring camp,
was endeavoring to "render" a
few lines of a Scotch song but
the Irish in him would not stand
for it—March 17.

(From page one)
katchewan, and Alberta, would
be 132,157,818.88 bushels. On
the yield basis of last year the increased acreage would produce
37,759,389.04 bushels. But 1914
was an off year for grain production in the West, and that average will probably be exceeded
in 1915.
The largest acreage for any
one station was reported from
Star City, in the black loam district in Northern Saskatchewan.
It was given as 100,000, and the
increase over last year as 40 per
cent. Naisberry, close to Star
City, reported 75,000 acres. Mel-
fort, nearby on the same line,
claimed an increase of 100 per
cent. Rosthern reported an increase of 300 per cent over last
year. Duck Lake's 500,000 acres
is an increase of 75 per cent. To
the north, Hafford, on the new
line connecting the cities of Prince
Albert and North Battlefo^d, reported 72,000 acres an area 95
per cent, greater than in 1913.
To the south, in Saskatchewan,
Delisle, on the Saskatoon-Calgary
line, reported 88,000 acres, which
is an increase of 30 per cent.
Marshall, on the main line toward the Alberta boundary re-
50,000 acres. In Alberta the
town of Hanna reported 40,000
acres, an incrcsse of 20 per cent.
Stlettler in the central portion of
the province, gave 30,000 an increase of 20 per cent. Craig-
myle, close to Calgary, reported
40,000 acres, and Delia, the next
station 47.009 which is an increase of 2C0 per cent. Two
towns on the same line, closer to
the Sask-Albera line—Cereal and
Chinook -- report 15,000 acres
each. In the former the increase
is given as 1400 per cent, while
at the latter place there was no
fall plowing done in 1913.
Even in the older-settled parts
of the West, there are gratifying
increases. At Norris, in Manitoba, the acreage is given at 30,-
000 and the increase at 35 per
cent. At Gladstone, there are
20,000 acres, which represents a
25 per cent increase. At Spirting in the Carman sub-division,
the agents report 40,000 which is
an increase of 15 per cent. At
Dunrea in the Hartney district
the figures jump to 70,000 which
represents an increase of 70 per
cent. Kipling reports 75'000 an
increase of 90 per cent. As these
are the conspicuous returns only,
it is apparant that Canada is doing her allotted part of the task
which is at present confronting
the Empire.
