Across Canada by Auto
Thos. W.  Wilby of New
York, and his assistant,  F.
E.  Haney,   driving   a Reo
''30*'   across   Canada   from
Halifax to Vancouver, passed
through town last Saturday
afternoon.     Mr. Willy did
not intend to pay Lillooet a
visit,  but coming over the
Ashcroft   road   enroute   to
Lytton did not turn on to
Lytton road at the bridge.
Mr.   Wilby   spoke   of   the
British Columbia   roads as
positively the finest he had
traversed    since   the  commencement of his trip.  This
was in spite of the fact that
British   Columbia  was the
youngest   province   in   the
Dominion   and   was in his
opinion indicative of the progress, prosperity and enterprise which had ever characterized the West.    The distance   traveled   was  3,900
miles and took from August
27th to October 14.
To Build Sidewalks
J. K. More of Clinton, road
superintendent for this district, accompanied by A.
McDonald, M. P. P., w«re
Lillooet visitors the first of
the week. They left Monday for South Fork to make
preparations for the building
of a bridge. Considerable
work is to be done at Lillooet soon. The building of
sidewalks and a government
barn will be started as soon
as Mr. Moore returns.
Hauling Freight
Several more loads of
material for the Pacific
Great Eastern Railway have
been hauled from Lytton this
week and stored in the new
warehouses at this end of
Seaton lake.
Pkir-Purchase
St. Mary's church was the
scene of a charming event
on Sunday last when the Rev.
Archdeacon Pugh united in
wedlock Edith M. Purchase
of   England,    and   Arthur
William Armit Phair of Lillooet.    The bride was given
away by Mr. William Hayl-
more and was attired in a
beautiful costume of white
silk voile draped with white
silk fringe and trimmed with
lace and pearls.     Her veil
which vas of Brussels net,
was   handsomely   wreathed
with orange b.o s jms and she
carried a sheaf o± white as-
tors.   The bridesmaids who
were the Misses Floss and
Dora   Manson   were  tastefully dressed in white mull
trimmed with lace and each
carried a boquet of pale pink
astors.    The groom was supported by his brother, Mr.
Herbert Lewis Phair.
The church was very tastefully decorated for the event.
Following the ceremony a
reception was held at the
home of Mrs. C. Phair,
where the wedding cake was
cut and congratulations
were received from the
many friends of the bride
and groom. Immediately
afterwards they boarded a
gaily decorated car, amid a
shower of rice and other
customery tokens of good
luck, enroute for Lytton and
coast points where they will
spend their honeymoon, hav-
iug the good wishes of the
many friends who gathered
round to wish them God
speed on their journey
through life.
The grooms gift to the
bride was a gold watch and
chain and to the bridesmaids,
pearl brooches. The Prospector

FRIDAY, OCTOUER 18.   1012
The United States has
barred the importation of
absinthe. The Dominion
should follow suit.
The Duke of Connaught
during his visit to the west
said that he hoped that the
stirring musical composition
''0 Canada" would become
the national song of the Dominion instead of "The
Maple Leaf.
That tuberculosis is responsible for one-third of the
sickness that reduces families to despondency is indicated by a study just completed by the New York Association for Improving the
Conditions of the Poor. In
a statement sent out the association states that this disease is the cause of over 8
per cent, of the destitute
homes in New York City.
Poor food, poor ventilation
and unsanitary surroundings
are no doubt the contributing causes.
The Western Crops
The Canadian Bank of
Commerce, ofter a comprehensive and systematic examination in Western Canada, estimates the wheat
yieid at 196,000,000 bushels;
oats 224,500,000 bushels;
barley, 49,600,000; flax, 12,-
900,000 bushels. The total
value of grain crops to the
producer is estimated by the
bank at $208,000,000.

Germans Eating Dog Meat
There has been 69,000 metric
pounds of dog meat sent out by
Saxony slaughter houses in the
last year. This represented only
a small proportion of the dogs
butchered, as the majority were
killed privately. The consumption of beer is falling off.

(Section 48)
Notice is hereby given that
on the 5th day of October
next, application will be
made to the Superintendent
of the Provincial Police for
the transfer of the licence
for the sale of liquor by retail in and hi on ine premises known as the Excelsior
Hotel, situate at Lillooet,

for transfer. The Prospector
Repudiates H. M. Clark
Winnipeg, Oct. 17-H. M.
Clark, who has been in Winnipeg on several occasions
during the past twelve
months, representing himself as Dominion organizor
for the Canadian Highway
Association, has no connection with that body, according to a statement made by
W. J. Kerr, president of the
Canadian Highway Association. Members have been
secured by Mr. Clark in
many cities from Halifax to
the Pacific coast, by advancing the argument that he
was working in the interest
of the Canadian Highway
Association, although his
connection was ceased on
January 3, 1912. In the
opinion of several who have
in the past came in contact
with Clark, his interest in
the cause of good roads has
become an obsession and it
was considered advisable to
publicity repudiate the self-
styled Dominion organizer.
Timber Reserves
The provincial timber
revnue for the month of
September    amounted     to
$256,681.93. There were
889 licences issued west of
the Cascades and 434 east of
that range. Into the fire
protection fund there was
paid $77,002. The revenue
from coal licences was $6,-
850 and there were fifty-one
coal prospecting licences issued.

To the Editor:—A real estate
authority, in the Daily World,
Vancouver, has made a careful
analysis of local averages of increased values of property in
Canada and the United States.
His conclusion is that "doubling
I the population quadruples the
value of real estate." What we
know of towns and cities in B. C.
certainly confirms this conclusion.
"Lovely Lillooet," owing to its
isolated position, has not been in
the race. But with the certainty
of railway facilities added to its
well known advantages of climate and its mineral and agricultural wealth, we already feel
the throbbings of the new life
upon which it is entering. This
looks like the ground floor of op-

We want to be absolutely sure.
And if we wait till we are sure,
the other fellow will be sure too,
and the price of what we wanted
has soared perhaps beyond our
reach. Most of us are agreed
that prices will never be lower,
and that a rapid rise is most
probable. Summing it all up it
seems that now is the time to
' 'get in." It is stated by Messrs.
Leitch & Taylor that in Port
Moody business lots which twelve
years ago sold for $50 have lately changed hands at $5000 each,
A little over 30 years ago, a
friend of mine, who was in the
conspiracy to take the C. P. R.
down to Coal Harbor, Vancouver,
urged me to put a few hundreds
into property down there. $5C0
would have bought 10, 15, or
more acres on " hat is now Cordova street, now selling at from
$3000 to $4500 per front foot. In
Kamloops, lots which a few
years ago sold for $50 are now
selling for $500 up. Land is the
keystone of the capitalistic arch,
and we'll never be millionaires
unless we go alter the unearned
increment. P. B. PUbMCU.
