of the gang.
Mr. F. W. Foster writing from Clinton
to the deputy minister of agriculture
says that fine, dry ashes of wood
sprinkled around in gardens and fields
where cutworms are will have an immediate effect on them. Directly the
worm touches the ashes it wriggles and
dies. 	
The Lillooet base ball club received a
telegram from the Kamloops club Wednesday, asking the Lillooet team to

Owing to Lillooet not having an organised team at present and those who do
play being without practice it was impossible to accept the invitation.

Death of firs. Rives.
The sad news of the death at Vancouver of Mrs. Rives, wife of Colonel G. T.
Rives, and daughter ot Mr. P. Burnet
of Lillooet, was received Monday morning with deep regret. Mrs. Rives had
been ailing for some time and was taken
to Vancouver a short time ago to receive
medical attendance at St. Paul's hospital. Everything possible was done to
relieve the sufferer but without avail as
she passed away early Monday morning,
the 6th.
The deceased was a native of Orillia,
Ont., and was twenty-four years of age,
having resided in British Columbia
several years. She was married to
Colonel R.ves, at St. Mary's church,
Lillooet, January 1st, 1900, a little over
seven mon tha ago.
Besides her father she has a brother
and a sister residing in Lillooet and also
relatives in Vancouver, who feel deeply
her death.
The bereaved husband and family
have the sincere sympathy of their
many friends.
The Maple Leal Forever.
Substitution of the maple leaf for the
Dominion shields of arms on the Canadian edition of the British flag, as
suggested by the Ontario Historical
Society, seems to be a pretty sensible
idea. The maple leaf iB really emple-
matic jf this country and would be con-
spicious on a fl„g. The other thing is a
hodge-podge understands and which on
a flag is a mere unrecognizable jungle of
colors even at a short distance.—Ottawa
Journal.
The Anderson Lake Mining Co's mill
on McGillivray Creek is now running.
Frank Tinkham and George McDonald
left town Thursday for the McKinley
claim on Cadwallader, owned by Dan.
Fraser, Frank Tinkham and others.
P. W. Heath and Ed. Cairns spent a
few days this week on Anderson Lake,
where Mr. Heatli has an interest in a
mineral claim which he was looking
over and is we'l pleased with the showing.
M. Gaynor returned from Cadwallader yesterday where he has been
for the past month doing assessment
work on his claims. He reports things
looking good along Cadwallader creek
and on his claims everything ia satisfactory.     	
The Cobbledick dredge at Lytton
operating on the Fraser River is now
running and handling considerable
gravel. The dredge is of a late ttyle,
in New Zealand was very successful in
securing the gold. The Cobbledick
dredge it is hoped will prove a success.
A. F. Rosenberger a mining man from
Nelson B. C. arrived in town Thursday
evening from Lytton and left next morning for Cayoosh creek to look over some
quartz claims owned by local parties.
Mr. Roienberger intends spending several weeks in the Lillooet district and
will look over other sections before his
return home.
The American owners of the nickle
mines of Sudbury, Ont., only pay their
workers the miserable wage—considering the hard —of $1.25 for a ten hour
day. The wonder is that the miners
don't migrate almost en masse to better
labor conditioned British Columbia. The
$1.25 of Sudbury is, of course, worth a
little more than the same sum here and
and equals $1.50 in the Kootenay. The
pay is nevertheless poor for a hard ten
hours day.
Geo. H. Gillespie, manager of the
Bend'Or mines came down from Cadwallader Saturday and left next morning for the coast where he expects to
remain about a couple of weeks. Mr.
Gillespie took down with him the result
of the mill run which amounts to several
thousand dollars. The property is looking first rate and the ore thoroughout is
keeping its average. During Mr. Gillespie's absence Arthur F. Noel ia in
charge of the mine.
Mr. John Dunlop left town the first of
the week for Cadwallader with Mr.
Leslie Hill, engineer for Lord Ernest
Hamilton, and will inspect the Woodchuck property on which Mr.Dunlop has
a bond. Besides the Woodchuck property they will also look over that section
generally and may probably become
interested in other properties. Lord
Ernest Hamilton is interested considerable throughout the province and it is
hoped he may secure properties in Lillooet.
L. D. Lewis and Mat Gilfoil went up
to the North Fork to do assessment work
on a mineral  claim  owned  by   them-
The mining committee in the provincial legislature is considering the imposition of a license for free miners, repealed
two years ago bv the Semlin government, also a clause including the costs
of survey in assessment work.
Captain Lamoree who has been in
town for the past few weeks awaiting an
opportunity to ship the hydraulic pipe-
and-giant to the Scum Scum on the South
Fork, expects to have everything cleared
in another week and will then leave for
California for the winter. His partners Dr. Brackett and Prof.Rifenburg
are hard at work repairing the damage
done by the high water of a few weeks
ago. They will have the property in
eood shape to commence active operations in the spring.
War Loan Heavily Subscribed To.
New York, Aug 4.—So great was tbe
demand for the new British War Loan
that before 11 o'clock this morning one
of the United States agents announced
that the subscriptions already received
would no doub't call for half of the entire £10,000,000. Another of the bank-
inp houses named in yesterdays Bank of
England circular, announced itself ready
to take all the bonds, if there was any
liklihood of such a proposition being
entertained abroad. Two days subscriptions came from the insurance
companies, corporations and private
holders, anxious to exchange United
States government bonds for the new
issue on a basis which would yield
double the rate of interest which their
present holdings now pay.
It was reported in Wall street today,
after business hours, that half of the
entire issue of the new British war loan
has been underwritten in this country.
It was said that £7000,000 sterling will
be used to defray the South African War
expenses, and the balance will go towards the cost of the campaign of China.
Net Cutting.
Information comes from Steveston
that nine fishing nets were mysteriously
cut on Monday night. The nets were
all owned by Japanese, which gave rise
to the impression that union fishermen
were avenging themselves on the Japanese for deserting the strikers. The nets
were supposed to have been cut while
the owners f lept. The damage done is
estimated at $900. The Japanese are
alarmed and are again calling for more
police protection. Since the beginning
of the strike 14 nets in all have been
cut. 	
He Is Her Joy Forever.
So an American who marries a Canadian forfeits all her rights and privileges,
civilly? Thus the court hasdecided, and
it ie something which should not scare
anyone. The Yankee girl that gets the
man she wants in Canada can afford to
let everything else go.—Kingston Whig.
Tbe fishing strike on the Fraser river
is at last settled and the price agreed
upon ia 19 cents per fish.
ROBBING THE QOVERNriENT.
Kamloops Aug. 5.—(Special)—Martin
Beattie, provincial constable and revenue tax collector, was arrested last
night for the embezzlement of government funds. The amount of bis defalcation is about $1,500. The preliminary examination waa held, and the
accused was sent up for trial.
Prince Alfred Dead.
Cbburg, July 31.—Prince Alfred Ernest Albert, Duke of Saxe-Coburg,
second son of Queen Victoria, died at 10
o'clock last evening, at Rosen a castle
from paralysis of the heart. Recently
at a consultation of specialists in Vienna
it was discovered that there was a cancerous growth at the root of bis tongue.
By his sudden death he escaped a painful, lingering death.
Qauda-r Te Retire.
A Winnipeg despatch says: Jake Gaudaur, of Rat Portage, champion oarsman of the world, when on a visit to
the regatta here, stated that after this
he would retire from the championship.
Although 42 years of age he is the
picture of health, but has streaks of
gray in his hair. He fancies young Ten
Eyck will prove his s uccessor to the
title.	
The First Contingent.
A cable message from Col. Otter says
the effective strength of the First Canadian contingent is increasing and it now
numbers 700 men fit for the field. This
is considered a wonderful improvement
compared with about five weeka ago,
when a report from Col. Otter stated
the force had been reduced to 350, from
disease and other causes.
Machinists Strike.
Vancouver, Aug 3.—All the machinists
in the C.P.R. shops here went out on
strike this morning in obedience to
orders received from Winnipeg. Thirty
men quit work this morning, as many
more having been laid off recently because of slackness of business. Machinists throughout British Calumbia are on
strike to-day.
Yukon Representation.
It is officially announced that on and
after August 19th. the Yukon will be
given the right to elect two representatives to the Territorial Council. It is
also expected that Dominion representation will soon follow.
A Country of Big Things.
China has one-fourth of the world's
population, one-twelfth of its land surface, and is likely, in the near future, to
have the largest graveyard on record.

A TRIP TO VANCOUVER.
Lillooet, B. 0,, July 27th.
Mr. Editor,—I  thought 1 would   noi
let the chance pass to   tell you a l.'.tie ol
my experience while visiting Vane»uv<r
during the Dominion D<iy  celebration.
To stint with   I   mufct  8»y I   was  at-
tonislied at  the t-ize and improvement*
made iu "old gas, town."    Tl.e C.P.R.
s.ation or depot is   soitn thing j;ra: d   -o
look at.    So grand that 1 walked in and
around the  building for   over an   hour
after   I  got off the train while  ten  or
twenty hotel   rummers kept howling at
me some of them even though they knew
me as the name "Rube" *ia< frequently
mentioned.       When   they   departed   1
ventured   out   oi     this  structure  and
walked   towards   one  of    Vancouver's
finest BtreetH which 1 learned was Hastings street.    This street  at night  was
simply a paradise all lighted up by »r lies
of electrical  bulbs I only   wished  that
eveayone of the folks from Lillooet were
there te see that sight.     I  stopped   at
one of the oldest hotel* in the Btietrt but
only for one night, as they gave   me  a
bedroom close to the roof. Well I thought
to myetlf after reading  so much  abuui
hotel fire j in  big cities that it was best
ior me to get a place close to the ground.
I waH  disappointed as  every hotel   in
town seemed to   be full up, my feet was
getting pretty sore walking mound On
those streets made of, 1 forget the name
ot the stuff.     I didnt have much   of   a
chance to walk on the sidewalks as   the
city folks seemed to have it all to themselves  another thing I Lad   my   valise
with me all the time and I seemed to be
in everybody's way.     So as the old saying goes [took the middle of the road fi.r
it.      What astonished me most was the
street busses run by electric curren  and
nobody appears to get hurt.  I have read
a lot ahout the dangers of elecricity, bin
the   buss men in  Vancouver seem to be
a'ble to handle it to peifection.   1 got on
one of the   buoses and had a ride   clear
around the   town and a most   enjoyable
ride, it was going up and down bib without any hindrance.   My fare for the ride
only cost me live cents but I was   willing to _ive the conductor a  dollar, he
would not take   it but  changed it   into
what we call chicken   feed, then he held
out a sort  of can and told me I  had   to
put my fare in myself.   I explained   to
him that I did'nt   doubt him for a minute he could put it in himself as I L'idn't
understand how it worked.     He left me
for a minute to stop the buss but  came
back again.     I told him   the ride   was
worth   the   dollar,    hut     he    refused
to take it saying he only wanted a nicklt-
for my fair. I finally settled with him by
giving the man  that sat next to me   the
money to put in apoligising at the same
time that 1 was a stranger in to*n   and
did not understand their Workings. 1 was
thinking  when that conductor   refused
the dollar that they ought to have some
of our  Lillooet boy^   on   them   busses,
they would take a dollar.     I thought he
would tax me for my valise but he didnt.
I kept it on the floor of the hues all the
time I was riding.     It puzzled me   entirely to see how the electric buss   company can make money at a nickel a fare
and dress   their   men so well.     A  passenger on the car told me the company
were very progressive and were extending their   lines all the   time, I told   the
man I didnt care how progressive   they
were it would  take  them ten years  of
hard work  before tbey   could ever  get
them busses into Lillooet and I bet I am
right to.   My intention was when I went
'o the city to ju t stay   the two days but
1 changed my mind and stayed a whole
week, it lakes a full week to sre everything. I eommeneed meeting old time
friends that 1 hadn't seen since, 8-1 and 1
tell you Vancouver was pretty small
lO'a'oes them days why there wasn't
enough land cleared to dig a grave for
Gassie Jack's Siwash dog that killed
himself eating salmon-iel pork. Amongst the old time friends I met, Mr.
Editor, «ere the Scotch Grey-, John
and Finley M Lmnan, they are great
boys too looking hale and healthy. They
are not inclined to run around as much
as some of the other old timers 1 me*.
Ho-pitality is no rame for it I wai inn -
duced to even one anil everyplace o
consequt-nce even his worship Ma\>r
Gardiner 1 don't know ho* I escape-;
meeting my old tillicum? tl e lir.'t two
days 1 was there.   I have t lOUght since,
lut although I wandered around iho e
2 days with my  valise 1 could have   got
along nicely alone.' My friends gave rile
what they  call « touch of hiiih life,   a> <'
toucan bet, Mr.Editor, you can't  Ii d
.my other name lor it.     We were at u>
Savoy Theatre one night and  it hlOtlgi t
back old   Bella-Union   days in Frisco   1
laughed till  my-poor <>ld sides   cracked,
them   nigger   ministerial and Irisli   fe!-
ovsate the funniest people in tl.e worl ,
add   the dancing  girls are line too.
tell I could  have stayed   another   week
if 1 had the time it was all too good   to
leave hut   my first thought  when 1 i>ot
up every morning (although carreid iom-
pletely  away by what 1 saw   the   night
before)  was my   hay ami my crops.     1
^vent to the races one day ai d ?a\v   old
Doc. English   in all his   ^1 >iy i,e was a
busy man, Ifi's horse Craw fold was   no
very  sue essful.   I kind a   think   tho e
Vancouvtr horses can trot   faster than
Crawford can ruti.    I dtdit'i play muci
money on the  races only b<-t a dollar on
Doc's   horse beciu-e he   wan   the   onb
hor-e I knew.  Aiij.ui McRae one of   the
I'oys that used  to team o;i the   Cario >»
road drove a blac. mare to victory aftei
■seven heats,   I didnt   sec that   race but
they tell me   that Angus   drove   like it
piofe-sional.
It would almost take me a month, Mr.
Editor, to tell all I seen. The Vancouvei
streets at night are a sight worth seeing.
My friends told pie the names of all the
streets and I put them down in.my boos.
A common word in this city if a man
[ewn a stranger] looks around or about
is Rubberneck. You can hear it from
the small b ij to the big man, 1 had a litt e
experience with it. On the 8 ilurday
night, my friends and I had been to the
line hotel bar with all the looking glasses
in it, and were coth'i'nu from Cambric
into Cordova street. It seems quite a
crowd of young men stand on th:s particular corner, S ilurday nights especially. I was feeling pietty good and younu
and I couldn't restrain myself from
sliou'ing out Rubbernecks. There, was
nearly being trouble in a minute. I
offered to apologise but my friends fail!
no, it would be too much like a mass
meeting as there over two htiudied apologies coming. I tell you you can have
a good time down there but let them
city fellows alone. I made up my mind
to keep my mouth shut as we went »n
down to the corner of Cameron street
where we   found   a  fellow   preaching;
hey called him the cowboy preacher.
He had a large crowd around him and
he was telling them from ids big hook,
how it happened. The windiest man in
Lillooet isn't in it with tnis fellow, even
the town of Lytton, where it blows all
ihe time, i-u't barred. My friends s_i<l
he is a corker. [I thought it a good
chance to cra< k a joke to them i illy]. 1
say« that accounts for him being hgln
headed. I was asked to keep quiet. I
listened attentively for awhile and found
out that the drift of his sermon was
against saloons and whisky. I wanttd
io bet Eome on the quiet th it   he   never
tarted preaching against whisky until
alter he had his nore painted which
looked as red ai a bei't'. 1 kind a
thought that hia preaching had something to do with the saloons as they all
closed up light at 11 o'clock either to
keep him ont or let their help have a
night off T had quite a j ib getting refreshments for myself and friends) after
thai, hour. I was a bony-fide traveller
and they couldn't rehire me; I was getting on to the ropes preitv fast.
Although thoroughly vl*****1' with
my week's stay I waa glad to get home
again hut before I left Vancouver I
promised my old time, friends that my
visits would be more frequent as 1
kind a like their style. I would
write you more but will reserve it
for another time. Work on the
ranch occupies most of my attention
now, but I will never forget my week's
visit to Vancouver during the Dominion
Day Celebration, 1900.

CHINA AND THE POWERS.
-w
Tlie Powers unite in i-omba',
And hand in hand Ihey gi>
Jiike one great injured people,
And China is tbeir foe
The billows bear the warship*
Which cut the foaming wave
And plunge to Chinese waters,
Th allied troops to save.
■The Powers unite in combat
To right our Common foe;
To slay the civil savage,
And lay ihe Heathen low.
A voice from Christian missions,
Comes from the China shore,
And reaches every port and heart
All tlie world o'er.
Tlie Powers unite in combat
in answer io that call,
And with a. voice like thunder
They echo one and ail —
"Tlie Kingdom of Confucian
Though an empire wide and vast,
Before another year 8hull be
A kingdom of the past.
Home twenty four hundred
And fifty years ago,
Confucius taught to China
Ail she wants to know;
That Empire is at present.
What Egypt was of yore,
Half civilized, hall' savage,
Half human,and no more.
Tlie Pharaohs knew of China
Four thousand ye us gone by,
When Abrain, and Isaac,
And Jacob were alive..
The Pharaohs knew this Empire
When Israel was enslaved —
They knew it as weknuw i',
For it never lias been saved
The Dowager of China,
Like Hypatia of old.
Is righting" for the heathen
And hi s dying g:xls of gold.
China is one family,
The Foreigners are one more—
"We warn no other fain ly to
Come tupping at our door."
Tlie Pow.ers unite in combat
In vengeance lor their slain,
Nor shall they sheathe their weapons
Till their hearts are quiet again.
Tlie world is ripe for actionize never wc.s before—
Eet civilization louquer—
Let China be no more.

Kamloops Exhibition.
Kaniionpd Agricultural Exhibition will
be held ibis ye*r on "Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, September 26, 27 and
28. His Honor, Lieut.-Ooveinor Jul)
baa consented to open tbe Exhibition.
Special effor s are being made this yeai
to increase public interest in this
annual event, and in order lo improve
the number and quality of exhibits substantial increases have been made to tbe
general and spec;al prize-bets. In tbe
matter of ttttiactions an excellent programme of sports is being arranged for
each day, to include hone and bicycle
races, baseba'l, lacrosse and football
matcher, and all manner of athletic
contests.
It ii expected that a special featme oi
the exhibition thi* fa.l will be the display made by the local merchants and
manufacturers, to encourage which n
number of valuable cash piiz s are
offered.
Already very encouraging promises oi
co-operation have been received from the
Lirmera and stock-raisers throughout
the diatri.t, and it may be anticipated
that the display of live stock and farm
products generally will this year eclipse
all previous records.
Full particulars regarding exhibits,
etc., can be obtained of the secretary,
Mr J. T, Robinson, Kamloops.
Answers For the Anxious.
G'orianua 1) ,of Westport, writes: "3
have a young gentleman caller who is always trying to kiss me. How shall I
dissuade him?"
You should dissuade him villi a hatpin or an ax, Glortaniia, but as an itl -
round, anti-kiss nrgunient, there is
no.hing so dissuading, ai.d at the same
time painless, as a large Dimntida onion.
You should eat one, two or three, before
the kibsing hug rlics aiomul.
"MuBician," of Wavcrly, wants to
know how to discover whether or not
her "p'mno keys are made of celluloid."
Touch them carefully witb a lighten
:\Jf match. If they are celluloid you should
then call ihe fire department.
''Housewife,1' of Roland Park, asks:
"How can I keep roaches out of laid?''
«
Place the butter near by. They prefer it.
'Lucy F.," of Highlandtown, says:
"My hairbrush shows a good many
falling baira every day. How'can 1 stop
thim?"
Soak the brush In glue over night.
"Rube": It certainly was inhospitable of your friend, whom you were
visiting, to refuse to allow you to u-e his
tO'thbrush. However, we should cubi-
vi'eii sweetness of di-posi'iou which
will enable us to overcome stub traits in
■ hers.
"Woried," of Cautonsville: Tin
piickest way to remove indelinle ink
from a carpet is to pour muriatic acid on
ne spot. Any carpenter can mend the
.oie it will make in ihe floor.
"Daisy," of Govanslown : Hanga are
no loiuer worn by the elif«. Tn<
fashion now is to allow the forehead to
ramble as far to the tear as it wishes.—

A Sweet Trick.
Quebec, July 25.—The facts have just
been learned of the unique manner in
which a suburban grocer was victimized
by two youna sharpers a few davs ago.
The rogues walked into the store,
bought a galon of molas-es for the purpose, they said, of deciding a wager of
whether the Boft felt hat of one of them
would hold that quantity. The molasses
was poured into the hat, but did not
hold half a gallon. Thereupon the loser
said : "1 guess I lose," and immediately lifted the hat and clapped it on the
head of the grocer, and while the latter
was rubbing the molasses out his eyes,
the sharpers made away with $40 contained in the till.
