Lillooet Mountain Sheep
"I have never had any correspondence with regard to making
a game reserve in our adjoining
district of the Similkameen,"
said Mr. Bryan Williams, provin-
cial game warden yetterday,
when his attention was called to
a despatch in a local afternoon
paper from Olympia, Washington
declaring that the state senate
has passed a law creating. a reserve in the Okanagan County
for what was claimed" to be the
largest herd of big horn mountain sheep anywhere on the
American continent. The measure was reported to be in line
with a joint programme with the
federal authorities and British
Columbia for the protection of
the herd. The provincial game
warden believes there are more
big horn mountain sheep on one
mountain in Lillooet than in that
whole section of country adjoining Okanagan County.
"Some time ago I had correspondence with regard to protecting the remnants of a sheep herd
there and we have had a close
season for their benefit," added
, "There used tone an enormous
herd in that country but there
are very few left on their side of
the line. They have got pretty
well thinned out. We have a
certain number there still but we
have got more sheep on one
mountain in the Lillooet country
than we can find in the whole
Ashnola country, which I think

He was supposed to have been

the other members of the herd,
which now numbers three animals. The Parks Board saw that
for the safety of the other buffaloes, the old one would have to
be destroyed and permission was
accordingly sought from Ottawa,
and he was shot.

Outside service employees of
the Dominion Department of
Railways and Canals, who are
presumed fit for military service,
are being dismissed at the end of
this month. Notices to this effect were received last week by
some of the employees when they
received their pay envelopes,
and it is understood that the
whole outside service of the department will be embraced in that
order. The department was recently augmented by the addition of a number of clerks taken on to expediate the work of
the Quebec & Saguenay Railroad
when taken over by the Government, These are now being released in the first men to be dismissed. This order applied only
to single men.
In Canada North
An American exchange, in "an
editorial, says:
It is in the consciousness of
every intelligent Canadian that
the peace which is inevitable,
may even now be on the way,
will mean for the Dominion expansion and growth in the next
generation far beyond anything
the country has known. This,
in view of the opening to the
plowshare and to civilization of
the prairie provinces, is saying a
great deal, but when Charles
Camsell, of the Geological Survey
of Canada, tells us that there are,
in Western Canada, areas aggregating 642,000 square miles that
must still be considered as unexplored, and in Northern Quebec about 250,000 square miles
more, making an aggregate of
892,000 square miles, it will be
seen that opportunities for development to the North, in the
light of experience, and with
modern tools, can hardly be exaggerated.
East of Reindeer Lake and
Kassan River, in Manitoba and
Northwest Territory, this authority tells us, there are 73,000
miles of unexplored country, or a
division of the continent larger
than the sum of the areas of New
York, New Jersey, Connecticut,
and Massachusetts. To some
people the term "unexplored" is
synonymous with " uninhabitable." Many in Canada used to
regard the areas now included in
Mjyjjtobja. Saskatchewan and Alberta Vfeifr years fego, as many
in the United States a few years
ago regarded most of the territory lying west of the Mississippi.
But the statement that territory
is un explored carries with it, to
people informed on the subject
of settlement, the inference that,
assuming ripeness for the times,
everything is possible for the
prospector and the immigrant
within its borders.

The dificulties of journalism in
the outposts of civilization, at this
season of the year, are thus graphically summarized by the Om-
ineca Herald in a late edition:

and all the mechanical staff are
also laid up. The type is frozen
and our wood is about gone. If
your subscription is not paid, send
it along now. There's the doctor to pay and the devil to pay,
and nothing to pay them with."
Even in this favored portion of
the Province, this is a good time
of the year to pay up subscriptions.

their attention to the interests of mining and agriculture.
We may hope that the old
proverb,    "a   new   broom
sweeps clean," will be verified in the new B.C. Government. That government has
indeed plenty to sweep, and
it might be staggered by the
initial complications by which
it is faced. There is no doubt
that the death of Hon. Ralph
Smith was hastened by a too
strenuous effort to unravel
the devious coil left by the
predecessors of the present
government.   In fact the position of the new cabinet may
be compared to that of a tenant who goes into a house
for the purpose of living in
it, but who finds that before
he can occupy it it has to be
reorganized   and    repaired
from roof to cellar.   A song
that was popular in the music halls  of  London some
years affo, which described
the troubles of people  in
various relations of life had
the refrain:
" He don't know where he
It would seem that this line,
though urigramatical, describes in some measare the
position of the B.C. Government.
A good  beginning has,
however, been made in appointing a firm of accountants of undoubted repute, to
make an exhaustive audit of
certain accounts, and it will
be interesting to see what
action will, be taken  when
their report has been duly
made.   The action will  be
one criterion by which the
character of the present cabinet will be judged.   Another opportunity for the clean-
sweeping broom will occur
when the formidable  commission which is to investigate the alleged "plugging"
at the  Vancouver election
presents the results of its enquiries.   The civil service reforms that have begun, and
there is no doubt that much
useless wood will be cut away
from the governmental outfit.   Though this may here
and there work hardship to
individuals_who have had
their noses, and their feet
too in the trough of the public treasury, it will generally
be allowed that a government which proposes to govern in business-like way must
be ready to dismiss without
compunction hangers-on who
are no use to the body-politic.   It was the plan of the
late government to keep
plenty of these heelers going,
and the sooner these gentry
are disillusioned the better.
When the government has

have been a revolution in
Germany. For years the
gaze of the German people
has been fixed absorbingly
upon the coming greatness
of their destiny. The British Empire is a mystery to
them, or rather it is a fraud
because they measure it by
standards of their own. Living  and  letting  live —the
 0  governing British Empire by letting
justice and the voice of the
people rule, these things are
non - understandable by the
governing classes in the German world. They have long
calculated that an empire so
foverned must fall to pieces,
hey have begun to find out
their mistake, and the sooner that mistake is hammered
into their comprehension, the
better it will be for the
world at large.

whom she has chosen as her
guides.    And there was one
man especially  whose pernicious writings have—more
than those of any other-
moulded   German thought.
That man was  NiCtszche.
He  was comparatively neglected during his life, but
since his death in 1900 his
books have sold in Germany
by the hundred thousand.
Germany, already under the
heel of the brutal Prussian
millitary caste, has meekly
received the teachings of NiCtszche, and has absorbed
his devilish doctrines.   According to this writer, life is
essentially  a struggle   for
power, and power could only
be for the few.   Everything
including the  lives of the
weak and poor, must be made
to contribute to the development of the "super-man .

come of the teaching is that
weak nations are the lawful
prey of the strong, and that
the strong nations will always be at War till one of
them dominates the whole
world. It is almost incredible that a nation should be
so blind to the principles of
free government as to adopt
such views. Yet even the
four millions of Socialists in
Germany have made no sign
to show that they even exist.
In reviewing the recruiting returns of
the different provinces of the Dominion,

British Columbia in the time of the Empire's need.

OCTOBER 7th, 1916. ,
In Canada North
from page 1
On the peninsula between
Ungava and Hudson -Bay
there is an area of 75,000
miles that no man can talk
about with authority, and
this is only one of several
areas around the great inland
sea toward which a railroad
was building when war broke
out. In ignorance of what
these stretches have to offer,
many are saying now, as in
the past they have said of
other unexplored lands, that
there is nothing in them to
invite adventure, enterprise
or industry. They do not
know. Regardless of pessimistic beliefs, energy and
capital united, previous to
August 1914, in a determined
effort to open up the Hudson
Bay country, and the work
was only temporarily interrupted when Belgium was
Every argument that is used
to chill expectation with regard to the Hudson Bay
country was employed to turn
the early westbound immigrant, south of the line, a
generation or so ago, away
from Minnesota, the Dako-
tas, Montana, Wyoming, Oregon, and Washington. These
territories, it was held with
pertinacity and confidence,
would "of course" never become habitable, "at least,
not to any extent." Later
the same discouraging future
was outlined for Western
Canada, east of the Rockies.
Yet people who have made a
surface investigation of the
Hudson Bay region say that
there is no more reason why
populations should not exist,
and thrive, and prosper within it than that populations
should not exist in Denmark,
Sweden, Norway, Finland
and Northern Russia.
A touch of civilation goes
a long way toward ' 'warming
up" a new country, toward
driving from it the atmosphere of wilderness. The
law of probabilities would
"render it entirely reasonable
to assume that the land in
Northern Canada, now hidden from the eye of man,
contains everything necessary to the maintenance of
those who shall delve in it.
When the war is over, the
railway that was to be built
at a cost of $16,000,000, in
order that Western Canada's
great cereal surplus might
be carried to Liverpool at a
saving of 1000 miles, will be
completed. Of this there appears to be no doubt, and
with communication once established, thorough exploration will follow as a matter
of course. Until it is found
that, in the vast territory for
which Hudson Bay .offers an
ocean outlet, there is no fer-
t i 1 e soil and no mineral
wealth, or, in other words,
until it is found that Canada
North is less favored natur-
