VOL. 7, NO. 11
LILLOOET,  B. C, FRIDAY, JANUARY 12, 1917.
§2 PER YEAR
BRITAIN AND LIQUOR
Here in Canada we have
but little conception of the
extent of the brewing business in England. For the
Britisher likes his beer and
for ..many generations the
brewers nave catered to his
taste. Many of them have
grown wealthy in the process. Some of them have
been made peers and have
taken their seats in the House
of Lords. And now in, this
time of war and stress it is
evident that the government
are going to deal with the
liquor business in a drastic
manner.
Lloyd George, the Premier,
has long been a moving force
in the atternpt to minimize
the evils of the traffic in
drink. His declaration that
it was a worse enemy of the
British than Germany or
Austria-Hungary is vividly
remembered.
The Board of Liquor Control in Britain has enforced
in munition areas no-treating, limited hours, and no
credit. In many munition
and dockyard centres all the
licences have been taken over,'
and the bars are operated by
government ags*is. This
has brought about big. reforms so far as works in munition and navy plants are
concerned. But other.steps
will shortly be taken.
Statistics recently to hand
show that for the year ending September last the breweries required 1,224,000 tons
of barley, 305,000 tons of
other grain, 65,000 tons of
rice and 41,000 tons of molasses. This is a total of
1,708,000 tons. Now that
foodstuffs are scarce in Britain and high in price, while
at the same time labor is
short, enconomy is being* insisted upon in every department of the national life.
Therefore the spending of
$800,000,000 a year on drink
is naturally singled out for
attack. The grain used by
brewers in Britain is mostly
home-grown, but if it were
used for other purposes the
country would need to import
so much less. Official figures
put the saving in tonage from
the diversion of this grain
and other materials to food
purposes at 1,000,000 tons
net of shipping. This represents about one:thirteentn of
the net tonage of the marine.
These considerations show
the n«ed there is for the
action of the Government
under the circumstances.
KISSING MEASUREMENT
We are having some glorious weather these days, even
for Jjillooet. Do not go to
California or the Alps — Lillooet is fully as glorious.
In an amusing article the
San Francisco Argonaut calls
attention to osculation as re;
lated to the moving picture
industry. The article opines
that since the moving picture
censors in the United States
are turning their attention
mine direction of what may
be called the film kiss it may
be appropriate to inquire
what constitutes impropriety
in these celluloid salutes. Is
it to be measured by their
length, or should some other
standard be adopted?
At. the present time the experts are at variance, although all are in agreement
that the yardstick must be
employed to determine when
propriety verges upon.( the
objectionable. Pennsylvania
says that eight feet of kiss
must be the limit, but Ohio
and Kansas are disposed to
be liberal, and will allow as
much as ten feet. But/ can
we measure the morality of
a kiss in this way? Ought
we not to take into account
the relationship of the kisser
and kissee? Our knowledge
of such matters is severely
limited and is "in no way a
practical one, but we can imagine a perfectly innocent
kiss that might extend to
twenty feet, while there are
other kisses that are distinctly undesirable and that might
run to no more than a few
inches. For example, there
is the snatched kiss, invariably reprehensible, and to
which a certain dextrous celerity is absolutely essential.
Our knowledge, we may say,
is derived wholly from fiction,
but it seems to b"e unimpeachable, Kipling deals with the
question of the snatched kiss
in his "Departmental Ditties,'' and he seems to think
that much' may be inferred
from the way in which they
are received^
My son, if a maiden deny thee and scuff -
ingly bid thee give o'er,
Yet lip meets with lip at the lastward—get
out!   She has been there before.
They are pecked on the ear and the chin
and the nose why are lacking in
lore.
But it may be said in all
seriousness that there is a
good deal too much kissing
in the "movies," and especially in the pictures in the
cheaper theatres. Sometimes it is a continuous kiss,
and one that is rarely justified by relationship, to put it
mildly. We can lay our
hands on where we suppose
our hearts to be and asseverate before high heaven that
we are not puretannical.
Thousands of readers of this
column will sustain this plea
of not guilty. But it does
seem a pity that innumerable
girls and boys should be
taught by the movies to look
WEATHER STATION
A Snow and Rain station
has now been established at
Lillooet. It is hoped that
Lillooet will be made a regular Weather station the same
as at Kamloops and Barkerville because we are centrally
located for the Lillooet District. Besides having telegraphic communications, Lillooet is the "Central" for
fifty telephones extending 70
miles into the, Bridge River
mining district, 47 miles to
Lytton, 47 miles to Clinton,
50 miles to Ashcroft, and can
be connected at Ashcroft
with the Cariboo-Kamloops
Merritt and other points east
fo Kamloops.
Lillooet is a mining, agriculture, fruit, and live stock
district, as well as a summer
and winter resort. The weather is called for from many
points each day and the daily
publication of the weather
at Lillooet would be of great
benefit to all concerned.
It is noted that Mr. F. N.
Dennison has been placed in
charge of all the metorlogical
work in British Columbia.
BASKET SOCIAL
The Basket Social and Dance
given on December 26th, in
honor of the boys who enlisted with the 230th Forestry
Battalion was well attended
and a good time was enjoyed
by all present. The sale of
lunch baskets realized the
goodly sum of $54.05, which
was handed over to the
"Womens Patriotic League."
Mr. P. Lewis, was the auctioneer. The highest bid for
one basket being $7.00.
At a subsequent meeting of
the League a vote of thanks
was passed to Mr. W. B.
French and Mr. W. Adams,
for their kind assistance in
arranging for the above Basket Social.
upon a kiss, even an eight-
foot kiss, as a mere trivial
and laughable incident, and
a part of the essential business of life. Now a kiss may
be by rib means a trivial
thing, and especially for a
girl, and it may be said,
moreover, that the girl who
is so familiarized with kisses
on the stage that she becomes inclined to a certain
liberality in dispensing the
real article is in a somewhat
undesirable place. In point
of fact she is on the broad
road to destruction. Now
we do not approve of censoring anything, not even sermons, but so long as the
"movies" are subject to censorship it might be well to
restrict the number of kisses
as well as their linear dimensions.
NEAR AND FAR
The 1916 Salmon packing: a-
mounted to 995,000 cases. Each
case weighs 48 pounds.
The school at Texas Creek has
been closed on account of the
measles.
Mr. and Mrs. G. Miller, who
have been visiting at the coast,
returned to Lillooet last week.
Every animal may safely ask
for simple justice. It is man alone
who must plead at last for mercy.
Miss Poole, school teacher, arrived in town last Saturday to
take charge of the Lillooet town
school.
The 1917 Ford will not be nearly so noisy. You see they've taken the brass band off the radiator
-Ex.
Mr.  and Mrs.  J.  W. Bourke,
were  visitors  to town,  and the**
guests of Dr.   and  Mrs.  J.  A.
Asselstine.
Mrs. Geo. Prosser, who has
been visiting at the coast returned home this week. George is
expected home in the near future
Miss Ryval (triumphantly), —I
suppose Jack never told you he
once proposed to me.
Jack's.Fiancee.— No; he told    -
me there were a number of things
in his life he was ashamed of, but
I didn't ask him what they were.
Mr. Pete Lewis took his "Tin
Lizzie" for a spin to Lytton
Thursday, arid from ail accounts
her behaviour was good. Pete
is en route for the coast city.
He was accompanied as far as
Lytton by Joe RusseL
A soldier whose head and face
were heavily swathed in bandages, and who obviously had had
a bad time, was being feelingly
sympathized with by a solicitous
lady. "And were you wounded
in the head, my poor fellow?"
"No. ma'am, "..Tommy replied,
"I was wounded in the ankle,
but the bandages slipped."
* The Medical Officer of Health
for Berwick, Scotland, announces
in his report, that he has made a
series of microscopic investigations into the bacteria infesting
the fur of the domestic cat, and.
he finds fnLt there is hardly a
species of disease-spreading bacteria that cannot be isolated from
the cat's fur, and in epidemics
of diphtheria, pneumonia, and
scarlet fever it should not be forgotten what part the domestic
cat may play. Cats are a positive
danger to children especially, and
more dangerous in spreading disease than even the house fly.
Probably no other wood burns
with more resistance than Cali-
fornian redwood. It seems to
have been made fire-resistant by
nature. In logging camps this is
peculiarly noticeable, for no other
wood could be so treated. Because of the enormous size of
redwood trees, the logs are very
heavy—a sixteen-foot butt log
weight from thirty to fifty tons—
it is very difficult to handle them
when the ground is littered with
bark, and undergrowth, and tops/
To get rid of this waste, or
"slash" as the lumbermen call it,
he simply sets it on fire. The
slash burns' off, but the logs do
not burn. They come through
this test by fire, which lasts from
eight to ten hours, with merely a
slight char on the sapwood on
their exterior. THE  LILLOOET  PROSPECTOR

Army Service Corps Want Recruits
An Opportunitxfor Which Many Eligibles
Have Long Been Waiting
Irish  Fusiliers
In reviewing the recruiting returns of
the different provinces of the Dominion,
one is profoundly impressed by the splendid response made by the manhood of
British Columbia in the time of the Empire's need.
This record is indeed one to be proud
of, but there are still a very large number
of eligible men in the Provinee who for
various reasons have been prevented from
doing their duty, aad it is to these that
the Officer Commanding No. 19 Company
•anadian Army Service Corps
with Headquarthrs at 1117 Seaton Street,
Vancouver, B.C. issues this appeal.
Instructions   have   just been received
from Headquarters to enlist men of the
following trades and occupations for overseas service with the above corps.
Horse Transport Drivers
Supply Clerks
Mechanical Transport Drivers
Bakers Butchers Farriers
Wheelers      Blacksmiths     Saddlers
Electricians Fitters & Turners
The advantage of a man being able to
work at the occupation he works at in
civil life will be apparent.
The men as recruited will be given a
little preliminary training here and sent
forward in drafts.
Any further information in this connection will be gladly furnished on application to the above address (1117 Seaton
Street. Vancouver).
The 11th Reg. The Irish
Fusiliers of Canada are very
busy recruiting for their overseas draft; 250 men are required for this Company and
in all probability when up to
strength, they will be attached to the 'Fighting Seventh.'
This Battalion is still busy
making history for British
Columbia, and It is an honour to uphold the history and
tradi.ion of this splendid
unit.
We want men, and yet
more men to jump into the
breaches. Any information
required on this subject can
be secured by writing or calling at the Irish Fusiliers recruiting offices, Lieut. J. M.
