THE PROSPECTOR
VOL. 3, NO. 38
LILLOOET,   B. C, FRIDAY, JULY 17, 1914.
$2 PER YEAR
P.C.E. Break All Records
LOCAL AND GENERAL ITEMS.
War Declared at Victoria
Breaking all records for rapidity in raiiroad construction in
Western America, an army numbering 5600 men is at present
employed on the Pacific Great
Eastern Railway, along the whole
of its length, from Squamish to
Peace River, via Fort George, a
distance of 810 miles. With this
achievement in progress, there
are being revealed evidences of
great natural resources throughout the district traversed which
prove a revelation even to those
who have supposed they were
well informed as to the possibilities of this section of British
Columbia. The scenery is said
to be very fine along the route,
and the timber and waterpowers
are valuable.
Pemberton Gleanings
Farmers in the Meadows are
delighted with the weather conditions; we have had a very welcome rain, which coming ffter a
long dry spell has brought along
the crops by leaps and bounds.
The Valley is looking fine just now
Tlie well-known prospector, J.
K. McKenzie had the misfortune
of losing by fire practically a new
house and all his stores, tools,
etc. Our sympathies are with
Mr. McKenzie and may dame
fortune be kinder to him in the
future.
We have had a few visitors in
the valley lately iooking for land,
several of whom came in from
the Okanagan country. They
were pleased with the prospects
of agriculture here and predict a
big future for Pemberton Meadows.
The P.G.E. piling across the
valley is now completed to the
bank of the Upper Lillooet River
and all is ready for building the
bridge across the river. We understand from Messrs. Culleton,
bridge contractors for the P.G.E.
that, this bridge will not be built
until the steel is laid, probably
about the end of September.
Settlers in the lower end of
Pemberton Meadows are anxiously awaiting the Drainage Commissioners report on the possibility and estimated cost of draining
the meadows by enlargening and
lowering the outlet of Lillooet
lake, and so bringing several
thousand acres under conditions
suitable to agriculture.
Messrs. Keddy and Keene and
associates are busy on their Eagle
group claims, and there are rumors of a smelter going in here
in the near future.
NOTICE
Notice is hereby given that the
date in Mr. J. Bell's advertisement on page 4 is August 8 instead of July 8, as stated in our
j last issue.
Dr. Jones arrived in our midst
this week; he left for his ranch
down the river.
H. Paynter of Vancouver, was
here this week, looking after his
business interests, in Lillooet and
vicinity.
J, A. McGee of 15-mile ranch,
Ashcroft road, was a visitor to
town; he came in to meet his
sister, Miss McGee, who will be
his guest for the summer months
Dr. A. G. Hirschberg, manager
of the Toric Optical Company
will visit Lillooet personally, instead of the regular representative.   See back page
Plans of a cable to be constructed by the Pacific cable
board for the Pacific cable hut at
Bamfield to Albemie, B.C., have
been deposited with the Department of public work at Ottawa.
Tenders are being called for
the construction of public buildings at Ashcroft and Merritt, also
for a drill hall at Kamloops. The
money was voted for the Ashcroft building two years ago.
Among the many visitors to
Lillooet this week were- J. B.
Tiffin. J, B. Bryson, G. Carson
and P. Garigan. It is a rare
pleasure to meet these oldtimers
and listen to the reminiscences
of the good old days.
Sir Donald Mann, vice-president of the Canadian Northern
Pacific, railway is expected to arrive in Vancouver this month and
according to advices will bring
with him instructions to start
work on the C.N.P. undertaking
in British Columbia, including the
False Creek terminous, Kamloops, Kelowna and Vernon line,
also a further extension of the
Vancouver Island Canadian Northern lines,
S. A. Macfarlane left for the
coast yesterday to visit his family
and will be away for a week or
ten days.
V. D. Webb, rancher of Pemberton, passed through Lillooet
early this morning; he was accompanied by Mrs. Webb. They
have just returned from they
honeymoon. We wish them the
best of luck in their venture.
Extensive improvements are
being made to the Excelsior hotel
these days. The hotel is being
repapered, painted, and generally
renervated. Mr. W. J. Abercrombie, proprietor, states that
he intends to keep accomodation
for his guests, as good as any at
the coast.
Dora Manson—George Prosser
Mr. and Mrs. Geo. Prosser returned home from their wedding trip. The wedding took
place at Ashcroft, last week.
They have the best wishes of
their many friends for a happy
and prosperous wedded life; we
also desire to echo these good
wishes.
What greater thing is there for
two human souls than to feel that
they are joined for life, to
strengthen each other in all labor,
to restrain each other in all sorrow, to minister to each other in
all pain, to be with each other in
silent, unspeakable memories at
the moment of the last parting—
George Eliot.
Hammondsport, N.Y.,July 14
The turning of the hull of the
America into a gigantic " sea
sled" was tonight hailed as the
solution of the problem that has
delayed the over ocean flight of
the Wanamaker flying boat.
The hollow runners with an air
space between them take the
place of the V-bottomed hull.
This is believed to be the best
system to raise the craft with its
heavy load quickly from the sur-
frce of the water.

The Board of In /estigation in
connection with the water rights
of settlers in Lillooet and vicinity-
met at in the Court House last
Tuesday morning. The Board
consisted of Mr. J. S. T. Alexander and Mr. E. Davis, with Mr
J. R. Mountain as clerk; Mr.
Alexander, in the absence of Mr.
Armstrong, occupied the chair.
The sitting lasted two days, and
it was a patient but tired Board
that closed the proceedings on
Wednesday evening; about one
hundred claims having been investigated.
It will be a matter of satisfaction to know that in future all
streams, creeks, rivers, etc., will
be given an official name, and
will be known by that name only
not by two or three as the case is
at present. This will simplify
matters in connection with water
records,  besides giving greater
satisfaction to all concerned.
As soon as the revised list of
names come out we will publish
same.
The lawyers present; —A. H.
Douglas, P.G.E.; H. M. Whiteside, for Mr. McEvoy; Mr. Tobin
for J. M. Mackinnon; Mr. Mclntyre for M. Foster. S. Gibbs
of Lillooet, acted on behalf of
several of the ranchers and residents.
A. Cochram of Vernon, was
here looking after the Indian
Reservation water rights.
The Board left for Merritt, and
from there will go to the 150-mile
house, Cariboo road, where they
are due Wednesday July 22nd.
Mr. Rowlands, who is connected with the Water Department,
is in town, and will enlighten
anybody on any possible doubt
the may have in connection with
the Water Rights Act.
The attention of all farmers
and land owners generally is
called to the necessity of waging
a vigorous campaign against noxious weeds, which are becoming
so prevailant in many of our best
farming districts throughout the
Province.
All Provincial Constables and
Forest Guards have been again
appointed as agents for this Department towards the enforcement of the provisions of the
Noxious Weeds Act. In addition,
Noxious Weeds Inspectors have
been appointed in different parts
of the Province, whose duties
will be to carefully go over their
districts, see that farmers and
land owners are taking the necessary steps to destroy the weeds
growing on their lands, and in
the event of non-compliance with
notices served on them, to institute proceedings against them.
The Department is determined
to use every legitimate effort to
have the provisions of the Act
strictly enforced, and look for the
whole-hearted co-operation of the
farmers themselves in this most
important matter.
Weeds may be divided into three
classes—Annuals, Biennials, and
Perennials.
(1) Annuals complete their
growth in a year. The prevention of the formation of seed for
one year, followed by careful
cultivation to kill all young plants
will soon eradicate Annuals. In
addition to this, all seed in soil
should be encouraged to germinate in order to complete control.
(2) Biennials require two seasons to complete their growth,
the flowers and seeds being produced during the second year.
Due notice should be taken of
this fact when fighting weeds of
this class.
(3) Perennials are the plants
which continue to grow for many
years, being propagated by underground root-stalk, stems, etc.,
as well as by seeds. The aim in
fighting perennials should be to
prevent any growth from being
made, hence starve the root systems.
There is no known weed which
cannot be eradicated if proper
measures are taken. Never allow seeds to ripen, and if they
do, encourage them to grow so
the plants may be killed by cultivation.
In our next issue we will publish the government report and
instructions as to the best methods of eradicating the weed pest.
The degree to which foreigners
are responsible for capital crime
in the Dominion is ineicated by
the fact that eleven death sentences now before the justice department at Ottawa; there is not
a Canadian or British subject
in the list. THE PROSPECTOR

Three new pre-emptors maps
covering the Nechaco, Chilcoten
and North Thompson districts
have just heen issued by the Surveys Branch of the Department
of Lands. These maps form part
of a series covering approximately 100,000 square miles of land,
and will prove of great assistance to intending pre-emptors.
They show the land surveyed to
date in the sections covered, the
tracls available for pre-emptions
being shown in pink, while those
taken up are indicated in white.
The surveyed areas shown in
pink and the unsurveyed land
shown in the same color can be
pre-empted at the office of th-±
Government v.gcnt of the land
recording division in which it is
situated. It is necessary to stake
the unsurveyed land and describe it according to metes and
bounds in the application. The
surveyed tracls can be applied
for without staking, being described in the application by their
number.
Maps have already been issued
in this series showing the land
for pre - emption in the Fort
George and Tete Jaune districts.
It was in these districts that
80,000 acres was opened to preemptions last month, and over
three quarters of this land remains open. The new maps cover the areas adjoining that embraced in previous ones; the
whole series are drawn to connect
with each other.
The Nechaco sheet shows the
territory westward of the Fort
George district extending to the
Hazel ton division and embraces
the great interior lake basin, and
the Nechaco, Endako and other
fertile valleys. The North Thompson sheet shows the land adjoining the ne*v C.N.P. railway, and
extends northward from the railway belt to the territory embraced
in the maps previously published
It includes the Canem Lake,
Bridge Lake and Bonaparte districts of eastern Lillooet and the
Clearwater, Barriere and Adams
Lake districts, other areas in
which settlement is taking place.
The Chilcoten sheet covers the
northern Lillooet and southern
Cariboo plateaux and valleys.
Another map, the Quesnel sheet,
is being completed, which will
cover the territory between that
embraced in the Chilcoten and
North Thompson sheets.
The series of pre-emptors maps
together with series of pamphlets published by the Department
of Lands describing in detail the
topographic and other-features of
the Fort George, Fort Fraser,
Skeena, Cariboo and Peace River
Land Recording divisions, will
prove of great value to intending
settlers.

STEPHEN & J. RETASKET. THE PROSPECTOR
English Sparrows Too Much For Texas Rodents
Fort Worth, Texas.-July 10-
Many stories have been told of
the powess of rats in combat with
other animals and the fact that
one can kill a dog is well known,
but the fact that they themselves
are warred upon and exterminated by the lowly English sparrow
has just been brought to light.
At North Fort Worth the erection of three brick buildings in a
peculiar manner left a small court
in the rear of one building with
no outlet except the blue sky
above.
This court has for some time
been used as a playground for
unusually big rats that they are
almost driving the grocers and
butcher in that vicinity to distraction.
English sparrows have of late
become attracted to this court
and wish to use it as a nestling
place. That rats and sparrows
cannot live together is a settled
thing, therefore the sparrows
have decided that the rats must
leave and daily they are killing
them off in large numbers.
