ULLOOET PROSPECTOR
VOL. f, NO. 51
LILLOOET,  B. C,  FRIDAY,  OCTOBER 20, 1916.
BANKS AND CURRENCY
The legislation that created a
reserve fund at Ottawa for the
purpose of redeeming the currency of any Canadian bank that
should be so unfortunate as to
suspend payment—an occurrence
of extreme rarity in Canada-
makes all Canadian bank bills
worth their face value. The
man who holds bank bills can always get his money for them.
If the bank should break, he is
all right. He will not only get
their value, but interest on the
intervening period.
This is only a single example
of the legislation that has helped
to build up the stability of Canadian banks. The trade in money
is like the trade in any other
commodity, and its operations
are subject to similar laws. Occasionally we meet with people
who make a general outcry a-
gainst all banks. It must be remembered, however, that they
?>re the vital organs of a commercial commodity—a man might as
well raise a cry against his own
lungs and heart. In this country
they are not only the dealer in
money, but the commercial capitalists, and practically the partners of all merchantile firms.
There is a sort of impression that
they are powers of evil requiring
a continual check on their malign
propensities, but as a matter of
fact it would be difficult to prove
that they need more looking after
than any other form of wholesale
business.
GAME BIRDS
"I bet you $5 that's a turkey,
not a chicken", said a visitorata
recen t agricultural show.
The bird in dispute was a chicken fattened and dressed by "disabled soldiers at one of the convalescent institutions of the Military Hospitals Commission. All
sorts of occupations are provided
at these places, and do much to
hasten the men's recovery as
well as to make them more capable of earning a good living when
they come out.
"Why don't you show some of
your live birds?" asked another
visitor— "Havn't you got any
good game birds?
"Yes", said one of the staff,
"We have some very fine specimens; first class fighters, too, as
they proved in France and Flanders. But they don't crow or
flap their wings about it, and
they dont want to be put on exhibition. All they want is a
chance to get back among their
fellow citizens and earn a decent
living. That's what we are helping them to do. Have you got a
few jobs to offer them when they
come out?"   Have YOU?

from Pavilion. A poisoned hand

LOCAL  ITEMS   OF INTEREST
NOTICE
In a recent issue we explained
that owing to circumstances over
which we had no control the contents might not be up to our usual standard.
We have now to express regret
that the sequence of events has
left us in a condition of complete
physical disability from which we
hope to recover at no distant
date and once more take up our
duties at the office of The Prospector.
FOUND — A pair of spurs.
Apply at the Prospector Office.
Mrs. Geo. Carson and son, accompanied by Miss Carson, are
visitors in town this week.
A. Ferguson, of the Pioneer
is in the hills, arriving from Vancouver Wednesday of last week.
J. Hall, of the Vancouver Milling and Grain Co., was through
the district last week purchasing
hay for the coast market.
J. Swartz of Swart Bros. Vancouver spent several days in
town, buying carloads of apples,
potatoes, etc.
Mr. E. R. Russell, of the Bank
of B.N. A. in Vancouver, spent a
few days in Lillooet this week.
He was greatly impressed by all
he saw of our beautiful district.
Sandy was walking along the
road in deep thought, and ft was
his minister who brought him to
earth again with-"Halloa, Sandy
Thinking of the future, eh?"
"No," replied Sandy, moodily,
"Tomorrow's the wife's birthday, and A'm thinking o' the
present."
A raffle for 1500 lbs of potatoes
and 500 lbs of squash presented
to the Canadian Patriotic Fund
by Mr. Wm. Adams, was held on
Sept. 25. Mr. LeMarchand who
was in charge of the raffle soon
sold the tickets, the lucky winner
being H. Boothman who drew
ticket number 43.
A report appearing in the current issue of the Ashcroft Journal to the effect that The Prospector has ceased publication calls
for correction and the Prospector
is far from dead, but the serious
illness of its editor, Mr. Morrison,
has caused some delay in publication. Arrangements have now
been made, however, for regular
issue once more.
The Committee of the Canadian Patriotic Fund wish to again
draw the attention of all subscribers who are still in arears to
forward their payments to the
Sec-Treasurer at Lillooet without
delay. The fiscal year of the
fund commences on October 1st
and it is hoped that all the outstanding amounts for 1916, will
be settled so that the yearly account can be closed and Lillooet's
promise to raise $1500.00 to aid
in this splendid and necessary
work, may be faithfully fulfilled.
Stewart Henderson is a visitor
in Lillooet this week.
B. J. Perry arrived from Vic-
ioria Friday last and proceeded
to Bridge River Saturday.
On Saturday afternoon tea
was served by Mrs. J. S. Bell at
her home in aid of the British
Red Cross Society.
Mrs. Bell was well patronized,
and with the assistance of Miss
McDonald who made some delicious candies for the occasion,
realized the splendid sum of $16.50
The committee of the War
Fund wish to express their thanks
and appreciation to Mrs. Bell and
Miss McDonald for their good
work.
Considerable activity in mining
circles is noticeable lately at
Bridge River and F. G. King and
Dr. E. J. Rutherford, of San
Francisco, representing the U.S.
Copper corporation are now in,
the hills examining the extensive
copper properties of Joe Russell
and Henry Schwartz on Gunn
Creek. A favorable report by
these experts will result in a
working bond being secured by
^he copper company'who have already secured a fifteen month
option on the claims. If the deal
goes through work upon an extensive scale will be commenced
immediately, to be followed by
operations upon a very large
scale.
Mr. A. D. Cummings, mining
expert of Duluth, who returned
this week from the headwaters
of McGillivary Creek where he
has been on a tour of inspection of
a group of mineral claims, reports several valuable minerals
as well as free milling ores have
been located and are now awaiting roads to facilitate development and the marketing of the
concentrates, also the getting in
of machinery and supplies.
Among other minerals which
has been discovered in this sec-
t on is Quicksilver.
Mr. Cummings leaves shortly
for the Savona district to locate
some taulk claims for parties in
Vancouver, after which he will
return to McGillvray Creek.
WIN GOLD MEDAL
Westerners will learn with interest that a gold medal was
awarded to the Canadian Pacific
Railway for the excellence of its
exhibit at the Quebec Exhibition
a few weeks ago. The gold
medal was for the collective grain
display, which was gathered in
Western Canada, and was representative of the various grain
crops of the Western Provinces.
The daily attendance at the Exhibition ran as high a 75,000, and
a very great interest in the agricultural posibilities of Western
Canada was shown by the visitors.
$2 PER YEAR
THE HOMELY POTATO
It is probably as useful for an
editorial to treat of potatoes as
for it to expatiate on politics.
The present time seems to be a
lull after the political tornado.
We can look around us and be
glad if we are getting a good
Mother Earth, in other words improving our agriculture and horticulture. And among the "Kindly fruits" with which this fall
season supplies us, the potato
must not be forgotten.
The average production of potatoes in Canada for five years
past has been over 75,000,000
bushels, and the value to the
grower is put at $37,000,000, a
year. These figures show no
doubt that there is considerable
export trade done in this line of
produce. And it should be remembered that quality is one of
the keys to export trade.
The potato is one of this continent's great gifts to the rest of
the world—the other being Indian
corn. The potato is native in the
mountainous districts of tropical
and sub-tropical America. The
Indians cultivated it, and the
white man took it to Europe
where, slowly at first, its good
value was appreciated.
The^varieties of the potato are
vast in number, and the yields in
Canada seem to be better than
across the border. On the experimental farm of the Ontario
Agricultural College, the yields
for the past five years varied
from 149 to 220 bushels per acre.
These are considerably higher
than the ordinary Ontario farmer
can show. But as there are no
fewer than 400«varieties on which
the agriculturist can experiment,
there is evidently much room for
intelligent cultivation. There
seems to be no reason, provided
proper care is bestowed, why the
potato should not take a more
prominent place among local products.
Consider the lowly postage
stamp. It sticks to one thing till
it gets there.

ON the main line of the Canadian
Pacific Hallway, is a little town
crowded ln between the Thompson River and the tracks of steel that
span a continent and a Dominion.
It's time table name Is Ashcroft,
the southern doorway of a famous
British Columbian region known as
the Cariboo country. For nearly seven hundred miles northward the
route extends, for long years one of
the most picturesque stage routes of
the continent, a route operated by the
"B X," as the British Columbia Express Company is locally known. For
many a long year the stages and
freighters climbed the hills, and crept,
no, rather galloped down grade, on
this u?ique thoroughfare—ten, eight-
horse freight teams and capacious
stage coaches drawn by the pick tif
the stables.
Bat to-day the automobile has invaded this mountain realm and there
are still traditions f what happened
and what was said when the Guggen
heimer copper kings sent in the ftr-t
motor car and had a fight for the
right of way oh a narrow bit of road
with a huge freighter. It was a battle royal; chiefly in the -language of
the western type!
I know of no ro?dway ln all Canada
that offers a greater variety of human
Interest. Nature is revealed in an infinite variety of scenery as she exhibits her varied moods. Shacks of
the old-timers survive alongside of
comfortable modern homeste ids. Here
a semi-arid hill bears only sage
brush, there an irrigation ditch has
turned a desert into a garden. Near-.
by Is a beautiful stream, opening Into a feeries of lakes, while a few mi'e-?
alon£ the way cascades leap from the
tipper levels. Indian villages alternate with the white man's town, and
the Oriental looks out at you from
his shop or laundry or cook place. It
Is a meeting place of the nations is
this Cariboo road.
fc>ery mile is reminiscent of the
gold rush of the 'Fifties, when thousands of adventurers, afflicted with
"the narrowing lust for gold," penetrated the wilderness from which few
jever emerged.    Legend and tragedy
An Old Time Coach.   (2)  Ashcroft, B.C.   (3) The Old Cariboo Tratt,
abound in the tales of the old-timers,
as the lonely and neglected graves
add their pathetic note.
One doubts if there is another
stretch of country in Canada's far-
flung area that is quite like the Cariboo trail. Evidences abound of untold  mineral wealth.    Forests clothe
many a hillside. Thriving f arms Va
appearing tn fertile pockets ln thai
valleys, a large aggregate of business
is transacted along the route and thai
entire region affords an ideal and
unique route for the. traveller who id
looking for l2w scene j and fresh experiences.
