LILLOOET,   B. C., FRIDAY, JUNE 12, 1914.
$2 PER YEAR
Copper King Mineral Claim
LOCAL AND GENERAL ITEMS.
The reports to hand from the
Copper King group of mineral
claims on Lillooet lake continue
to be of a very satisfactory nature. Considerable development
work is being done on the property. The vein runs in a northwesterly direction, is traceable
for three miles and varies from
50 to 100 feet in width. The
capping of the ledge consisi s of
iron and gossam, the ore assays
gold, silver and copper. There
is at lowest calculation one hundred thousand tons of ore in
sight. The claims are located
about seven miles south of the
P.G.E. railway but there is an
easy grade for a branch line to
mines.
Found Drowned
The death has occurred at Anderson lake of Olaf Anderson.
He was employed on the P. G. E.
railway construction and was attached to P. Welch's camp 2.
The last that was seen of him
alive was about 8 p.m. on the 9th
inst., when he was met by B. S.
Swanson, whom he told, that he
had a row boat which he was
going to take to camp 3. The
boat was found bottom up about
10.30 a.m. on the 10th inst, with
an oar and a row-lock missing.
The body was found close by the
boat in about four feet of water,
by Mr. J. McDougal, supt for J.
A. Welch. Constable W. Baker
brought the body to town, an inquest was held yesterday afternoon, there being no marks of
violence on the body, the jury
found a verdict of found drowned
The body was interred in the
town cemetery yesterday afternoon.
Anderson leaves a widow and
five children in Sweden to mourn
their loss.
County Court
County court was held here
this week with Judge Calder presiding. The following cases were
heard—
The will of W. C. Riley was
probated, W. E. Riley was appointed administrator.
Wo Hing vs J, McGaan—Judgment for Wo $351.30 with costs.
Wm. Adolph, Chief of Fountain reserve vs McGaan—Judgement for Chief $62.35 with costs.
W. L. Dickey vs McGaan—
Judgment forj W. Dickey with
costs.
C. A. Phair vs McGaan -Judgment for Phair $322 with costs.
Constables Angus and Stewart
and a Chinaman vs Chinaman for
unlawful arrest. The lawyer for
plaintiff failed to appear, telegraphing that he had misunderstood the date of court. In his
absence of any evidence judgment was given for defendents,
except Constable Stewart who
failed to file a defence bill. The
judgement was awarded against
him, but owing to there being no
defense the damage was not
assessed.
Mrs. Hall of Vancouver is a
visitor in town these days and is
staying with Mrs. Dan Hurley.
C. Phair, government agent,
returned home this week from an
official trip to the coast cities.
Alex Phair of Anderson lake,
was in town this week. He came
in for some new parts for the engine in the boat on Anderson
lake.
It seems quite like "old times"
again to see S. A. Macfarlane
looking after the town's water
supply. He is a very busy man
these days.
Mr. G. H. Leaf is in from' the
coast. Having heard so much
about this section of the province
he has come here with the intention of taking land..
Harry Gibbs from Barbine lake
is a visitor in town to his parents
here. He reports everything
most satisfactory in the northern
parts of the province and the
mildest winter ever known.
O. K. Pressentin, who, for the
past two years has occupied the
position of salesman for C. A.
Phair's store, is contemplating
opening a general store in Clinton. He is well acquainted with
the public demands along this
line and should make good.
Report comes to hand that a
man has been arrested in connection with the South Fort
George conflagration, in which
two men lost their lives. The
indications are those of foul play,
blood stains were also found on
a piece of the blanket which one
of the deceased had been sleeping upon. The building had only
one story, and it is thought that
foul play took place, then the
building set on fire.
A short, bright and inspiring
service was held in the Methodist
church last Sunday evening.
This was the first appearance of
Rev. R.D. Hall in Lillooet. He is)
from Enderby and has come here
as resident minister. It is hoped
that everybody will do their utmost to assist Mr. Hall, not only
by sending the children, but by
attending the evening service
themselves.
Services in the Methodist Ch.
are—morning service at 11 for
the children; evening at 7.30 for
everybody. A cordial invitation
is offered to all.
Everybody Get Busy
Mr. J. McDougall, supt. for J.
Welch was in town this week to
attend the inquest on O. Anderson.
F. D. Keeley arrived in Lillooet
this week from the coast cities,
where he has been on a business
trip for the past few weeks.
Strawberries grown by Lillooet
Nurseries are arriving daily at
Phair's.
C. C. Galloway, superintendent
of the Coronation arrived in town
this week, enroute from the coast
to the mine. He left early this
morning.
A Packard auto arrived in
town last week for the P. G. E.
officials. The car is to be used
between Lac la Hache and this
town.
Miss Spetch of Anderson Portage passed through Lillooet en
route for the Portage from the
coast cities, where she has been
for the past month.
The death has occurred at Bal-
lyshannon of Prof. Robert Crawford, the eminent engineer, who
carried out several important
schemes in Canada, and at one
time filled the chair of engineering at McGill.
Something should be done to
prevent people tying their horses
to the Church of England fence,
it is only about two weeks ago
that it was put in first class order, but at the present rate, it will
not be long before it is down
again.
We are pleased to welcome
Mrs. W. Anderson, who has just
arrived in our midst from bonnie
Scotland.
Mr. W. Anderson, who is resident engineer on the P. G. E.
railway on Residency 20. paid a
flying visit to Kamloops this
week, returning richer than he
went. It is with great pleasure
that his friends welcome him as
a benedict and his wife into their
midst. They may be assured of all
their best wishes in the new life
they have taken up.
It would be good work on the
part of business men and property owners to pay a little attention
to the matter of fire protection.
Some means should be adopted
to remove all dry and inflammable material from all lots.   The
old   lumber and oil  cases  will
become drier with each succeeding  day,   and unless removed,
will   be  a   source  of  constant
danger  to  the  community.   It
would be well for individual owners to help isolate the probability
of fire by removing from their
lots, any substance of an inflammable nature.  Many towns have
been baptized in flames in the
past, and many more will be in
the future, but if proper action is
taken now, such a contingency
in Lillooet is remote.   It would
also be a good thing, at the same
time to remove all the old cans
and rubbish lying around, which
at present is an eyesore to any
respectable community.   We are
glad to note that this condition is
not being caused by the oldtimers
but by a few of the late comers.
There is a dump heap, why not
use it.
Let us, one and all, help make
Lillooet one of the cleanest, tidiest and most comfortable towns
in the province. Everybody get
busy, it is only by each one doing
his part, that this desirable result can be attained.

Frederick Bishop, Observer
Suicide at Lytton
Last Sunday noon Axel Johnson, restaurant keeper of Lytton,
was found dead in his back kitchen. It appears that he had been
brooding over his personal affairs
to such an extent that he at last
took his own life by cutting his
throat with a carving knife. He
is reported to have fired the
Chinaman cook about 9 a.m. then
to have done the deed. The body
was found lying over a pile of
potatoes which he had evidently
prepared for the noon hour.
Johnson—Langford
London June 9— Six thousand
sovereigns, the largest sum of
gold ever deposited to insure a
glove fight was posted today at
the office of the "Sportsman,"
to ensure a battle between Jack
Johnson and Sam Langford. The
cash was deposited by Gerrard
Austin, representing a syndicate
of promoters.
Football
The postponed football match
between Portage and Lillooet
was played off on the Lillooet
ground last week and ended in the
town boys being defeated by the
score of 5-1. Owing to the wind
there was very little scientific
play, but taking everything into
consideration, it was a fairly
good game. The Portage boys
on the day's play were the better
team. The town boys have some
good material, and should, with
more practice together, providing
they adopt the passing game, become a good team. Much credit
is due to Hughes for the able way
he kept goal. He saved well and
often, the shots that took effect
being placed beyond his reach.
Forest Fires
Reports received up to late last
night from every section where
forest fires have been raging
state that the recent rains have
effectually extinguished all the
dangerous conflagrations and that
with a little precaution used, the
danger is over.
No loss of life has been reported, and the damage done to property has not increased last week.
Many cases of burns and injuries
are reported among the fighters,
but fortunately these are all of
a minor nature.

A. E. Ludwig, Manager.
JUNE 12.   1914.
Realizing the importance of the
mining industry of British Columbia and the interest that is
being taken in our large and varied mineral resources, the Van-
ucover Exhibition Association are
endeavoring to give due prominence to this important industry.
A great interest has been taken
in the Mines exhibit at the previous Expibitions, and every effort will be made to make the
mining exhibit a feature of this
year's Fair.
The exhibits will be well arranged and demonstrated to the
best advantage in the commodious
and well lighted Mines and Forestry building, and much benefit
may be derived by the individual
mining properties and mining
districts represented, apart from
the valuable prizes and awards
of merit that will be given for
mineral exhibits in the different
classes. To accomplish this the
Officers of the Association are requesting the co-operation of those
actively connected with and having the mining industry at heart.
Transportation on all exhibits
will be arranged through the
courtesy of the railway companies, or paid by the Association, on
all ores coming for exhibition
purposes, if sufficient notice is
given before shipment is made.
The Association cannot possibly
do more than this to help bring
before an intelligent public, the
greatly increasing mining industry. Now is your opportunity to
show those interested in mining
that we have the "stuff" that
is going to bring Lillooet and
district to the front before very
many months have past.
Mr. F. J. Crosslands is Representing Director for Vancouver
Chamber of Mines.
No further developements in
connection with the disaster to
the Empress of Ireland have
come to light. The public has
settled down to await with patience the official investigation
which is to begin on June 16,
with Lord Mersey as chairman of
the inquiry, though individuals
continue to discuss the divergent
statements about the shipwreck
made by Captain Kendall of the
Empress and Captain Anderson
of the Storstad.
There is confusion in the public mind as to whether the investigation will be held at Montreal
or Quebec, but Ottawa dispatches
to Montreal on June 5, mention Quebec as the scene of the
inquiry.
It is believed that the Empress
may be raised, although the C.
P. R. officials have been careful
not to make any statements to
confirm this belief. Such a move
would have the approval of the
public, which seems anxious that
all the bodies possible should be
recovered from the wrecked ves-
sell, no matter what the cost.
Possibly divers will be employed
to extricate the imprisoned bodies, and the ship blown up after
the bullion in it has been taken
out.
Death of Actress

Caine, the actress, sister of Hall
Caine, died last night. She played many roles in many pieces,

Four Assessors To Help
Empress Commission
Ottawa, June, 7-In the Commons this morning Hon J. D.
Hazen announced that the inquiry into the Empress of Ireland
disaster will open at Quebec on
June 16. The four assessors who
will assist the commission in arriving at a finding will be Commander Caborne, of the royal
naval reserve, Prof. John Welsh,
of Newcastle, England, Captain
Demers, Dominion wreck commissioner and Engineer Commander Howe of the Canadian
naval service.
Commander Caborne and Prof.
Welsh are the nominees of the
British board of trade. The former is a nautical expert of wide
experience, and the latter a well-
known naval architect. The
Canadian representatives are men
of wide experience. Mr. Hazen
gave the house at some length
the records of the four men who
will assist the commissioners. He
expressed the hope that the court
as constituted would meet the
approval of the house and the
people, as it had already met
with the approval of the British
authorities.

Two Cremated in Morning
Fire at South Ft. George
South Fort George, June 5—
Bert Moody, formerly time keeper at mile 142, and Steve Soko-
lowski, a young Austrian, were
burned to death here early this
morning in a fire which destroyed
the Palace rooming house, Wm.
Rowatt's residence and three
smaller dwellings. The fire, of
unknown origin, broke out at 3
o'clock in the morning in the
rooming house, and made such
rapid headway that it was with
difficulty that many of the occupants made their escape. Everything they had was lost, and
some of them had their hair and
eye brows burnt before jumping
from the windows, it being the
only avenue of escape left to
them.
Albert Chappel, a recent arrival from Vancouver, Lost $500
and a diamond ring valued at
$400.
Anthony Wedgis, owner of the
rooming house, estimates the
damage to his property at $8000
The loss of Mr. Rowatt is placed
at $2,500.
The firemen fought well, but
their efforts were handicaped by
the lack of water, owing to the
fact that there is not a proper
water system. The blame for
this is laid on the provincial government, and there is much indignation among the citizens because the town was not allowed
incorporation and thereby placed
in position to provide for such
necessary services.
Church Destroyed
Derby, England.—The historic
Church of Breadsall, dated back
to the Norman times and containing many priceless relics,
was destroyed this week by fire
believed to be of suffragette
origin. Recently a meeting of
suffraget'jes in the village of
Breadsall was dispersed and it is
believed that the women burned
the church in revenge. The
church register, dating back to
1573, was saved.
Explosions similar to that caused by bombs usually used by the
arson squad were heard just before the fire.

Reparation for Benton's Murder
If Villa Becomes President
London, June 6. — The Daily
Express asserts that Sir Edward
Grey, the British Foreign Secretary, has notified President Wilson in frinedly but unequivocal
terms that if General Villa should
become president of Mexico, the
British government would demand and exact satisfaction for
the murder of Wm. S. Benton,
who was killed last February by
the Constitutionalists.
The Daily Express says that
this communication "decorated
with all the frills and embroidery
of diplomatic usage and crouched
in language emphasizing Great
Britain's good will toward the
United States, places President
Wilson in an awkward position."
An editorial in the Daily Express on the same subject ex-
satisfaction and astonishment
that the government has at last
put its foot down. It disclaims
that any attempt to subvert the
Monroe doctrine is being made,
and says it would be impossible
to exaggerate the fraternal sentiment of Great Britain for the
United States. The editorial declares, however, that the whole
nation will approve Sir Edward
Grey's straight-forward declaration that if the United States
fails to exact reparation Great
Britain will exact it. — Sun.
