LILLOOET, B. C, FRIDAY, AUGUST 21, 1914.

Annual Report of i iiiooet Lillooet Contingent B.C. Light Horse
Mining Division Leaye on Active Service
(Report of Minister of Mines)
On the morning of August 14 j
the blizzard was still raging, a-
Remarkable Enthuiasm Displayed at Farewell Smoker
History was made in Lillooet on
arms for the kind and obviously
bout   8  inches of snow having'the night of August 14ih  when'genuine expression of the senti

even wit Ab. Brett an old-timer i who have volunteered to fight for
as guide, it was with some diffi-l their country in this War of the
bulty   we   were   able to travel
through the pass at 6,300 feet
elevation to the head ot' a small
creek below the mountain known
as the "Smith" summit,  which
had to be crossed at an elevation
of 6,800 feet in order to descend
into the Cadwallader creek valley this terrible struggle.
on the opposite side and' nearly     Recruiting for the B.C.  Light
2000 feet lower.     At the bead of Horse, -lo which arm of the Ser-
this creek I found Jack Johnson | vice   these  men  have  been  at-
Empires ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
From the moment when war
was declared the heart of Lillooet
had responded to the war drum,
and no less than 17 young men of
the town and vicinity leaped to
the Standard to "Do or die" in
and John Olson, two prospectors
just preparing to break camp;
they had been engaged in doing
assessment-work on some of the
mineral ch'ms I have referred to
as located west from the Empire
group; they had some ore quite
similar   to  that  found   on  the
tached—was swiftly carried out,
and the fellows who have offered
themselves so unassumingly to
their Country would have willingly slipped away unnoticed.
But Lillooet decreed otherwise,
and en Friday night a gathering
unequalled in the annals of "Our
Empire claim, of which I had tak-j Little City, "toe k the form of a
and   would  have

been glad to have taken me over
their ground, but the depth of
snow absolutely prevented any
examination, and the weather
conditions did not promise any
improvement, at least for days;
consequently i took Mr. Olson as
guide over the Smith summit,
where rdl the trails are obliterated. I continued my journey
and in the afternoon reached the
bottom of the mountain and Cadwallader creek valley, where a
gang of roadmen were camped,
engaged in slashin r out a new
trail around the base of this
mountain to the divide at the
heads of Cadwallader and McGillivary creeks, and so connect with
the trail built down the latter
creek.
When this connection is made,
it will be quite an easy trip from
the mouth of McGillivary creek
over the divide, at 5,800 feet elevation, and down Cadwallader
creek. The- distance from the
Pacific Great, Eastern Railway,
at the mouth of McGillivary Ck.,
to the Coronation mine on Cad-
wallaea creek by this new route
will not exceed twenty-two miles
As we descended the Smith
mountain   on   the    Cadwallader
Smoking Concc:	
Mr. J. A. Skerchly, F.R.G.S.,
was in the chair, and, as we heard
a delighted member of the company remark, "made everyone
feel thoroughly at ease."
A notable feature of the proceedings was an impassioned
speech, by Mr. J. S. Bell, who
briefly reviewed Naval development during the last half century. He concluded with a Clarion call to the manhood of the
nation to rise and smite the
enemy "hip and thigh." He
showed a remarkable grasp of
facts and figures vitally related
to the present World crisis, and
his weighty words will not soon
be forgotten by those who were
fortunate enough to be present.
. Chief of Police. W. Spiller, 1st
class gun layer in His Majesty's
Navy, spoke to "The War," and
--as might, be expected from one
of the Bull-dog Breed—his words
vibrated with an intense desire to
have a shot, not at a target this
time, but at the enemy. His record shows that, given the oppo-
tunity, he would make the enemy
"see things."
Specially impressive was the
speech to "Our Boys" by Mr. W.
Adams Ex-M.P.P.   With the Lil-
creek   side from an elevation of j jooet  Contingent of   the   B. C,
6,800 feet there was no snow on I Horse lined up before him,  and
the ground at about 300 feet he
low tlie summit, although rain
had fallen heavily, which appeared strange, as on McGillivary
creek side the snow extended
down to the creek-level, or at
l"ast about'1,000 feet lower than
the summit.
Frier ds of Bob Thomas will
be glad lo learn that he is considerably better.
Mr. Cuthbert of Moha has been
caile 1 to join the colors today.
Mr. Furkholder of N.F. spent
a few days in town this week,
Mr. Percy LaMare. District
Forester, brings home a Bride
from Kamloops this week. They
have our Best Wishes.
Mrs. W. T. Bridge and daughter arrived in Lillooet Wednesday
with the audience hanging on
every word he uttered, this Veteran member of the B.C. Legislature told "The Boys" of the
pride which Lillooet felt in having 14 such fellows ready to give
up, if necessary,  their lives to
I the cause of King and Country.
I While most of us were doing
something for the great movement, the young men were giving
themselves, than which gift
there could be no greater sacrifice. Finally he exhorted them
to trust in the God of Battles,
and do the right. He expressed
a desire that Lillooet might see
them yet again. Whatever happened they would do their duty.
That was what Lillooet expected
and believed they would do.
Mr. W. E. Sandys, one of the
Volunteer   "Boys  of- Lillooet,"
The War Fund has passed the j and deservedly one of the most
$200 mavk. \popular fellows in town, spoke in
Mr. and Mrs. A. F. Noel left reply to Mr. Adams, thanking
for the coast on Wednesdsy.        | him on behalf of his comrades-in-
ments of the Town. He assured
those present that he and those
who were leaving with him would
not easily forget the hearty Send-
off they were receiving. They
did not know where they were
going, but were ready at the call
of duty to go anywhere and do
their best in the discharge of
their duty. Mi-. Sandys combining in himself French and English
blood, is a living embodiment of the
Entente Cordiale, and thus represent in a special degree the mixed
nationalities, French and English,
of which Canada so largely consists. His manly speech was the
keynote of the general Esprit de
Corps which prevails among the
"Boys."
The musical side of the programme was well represented by
the   singing   of   Patriotic   Airs.
The " Heart Songs " and
Melodies which have so often
cheered the man we know so well
by the name of Tommy Atkins,
were interspersed with the speech
es.
Never were the Songs and Anthems of the Allied Nations sung
with mnre fervor, with more intense meaning, and under more
grave circumstances, than they
were in Lillooet on this evening,
at the moment when in Europe
no fewer than 18 millions of-men
under arms were prepared to
spring to the fight.
Solos were sung by W. E.
Sandys, Chas. Watt, A. B. Greig
and others, several of the Airs
calling forth frantic cheers for
the Countries they represent.
T. Sweet recited one of R. W.
Service's most popular poems.
The Walton-Lawrence Variety
Co. kindly gave assistance in the
form of several musical items.
J. T. Rigg (L'llooet B. C. Mining Co.) is entitled to the thanks
of the town for his energy in
helping to organize such a highly
successful Au Revoir.
A vote of thanks is tendered
Mr. M. R. Eagleson for his kind-
neess in lending the hall.
At the back of the Chairman,
co.ering nearly one whole side of
the room, was the immense Flag
of Canada which will float so
proudly over Lillooet when our
enemies are beaten.
God Save The King.
Latest War Telegram
No authentic news of Naval
battle yet.
St. Petersburg—Russians captured town East Prussia along
with twelve German guns and a
large number of prisoners,
Paris — The re-occupation of
Mulhausen-Alsace by the French
is announced officially.
The retaking waf preceeded by
a very severe battle, during
which French troops took one
suburb at point of the bayonet.
They also took as result of their
victory six German canons and
six ammunition wagons.
London—Despatch from Reuters News agency from Ghent
says: Yesterdays fighting at
Tershet was extremely hot. The
appearance of two German aviators was the first intimation that
the Germans who had been repulsed the previous day intended
to renew the attack. Flying low
the aviators surveyed the position
then returned to report. Soon
afterwards German infantry supported by machine guns and artillery opened fierce attack. The
Belgians were outnumbered, but
put up terrible resistance. Both
sides fought like demons and the
battle became a veritable butchery. Two Belgian regiments
which already had distinguished
themselves in the forts of Liege
held the invaders in check for
two hours. Both sides were losing heavily when the retreat was
sounded. Major Gibson whose
nose was broken by a bullet took
charge of the Belgian rear guard
which fought so stubbonly that
only seven of his force of 288
men returned.
On Saturday August 15th, the
14 chosen out of the 17 who volunteered for the front, left for
Lytton. The autos in which they
travelled carried the Union Jack
and Canadian Flags.
Most of the citizens of the town
were assembled near the Flagstaff which bore aloft the Flag
for which the "Boys of Lillooet"
will fight.
Many ladies of the town, with
their families graced the occasion, and after the singing of the
strains of "God be with you till
we meet again," J. S. Bell made
a short speech which expressed
the sentiments of those present,
viz., a fervent hope that all the
volunteers would be spared to
return, if they so desired, and for
the success of the British Arms
in general.
Mr. Adams added a few words
Methodist church : Morning
(Sunday School) at 11. There
will be the usual evening service
Mr. W. T. Bridge will preach.
Mrs. Willson and child, accompanied by her' sister, spent a few
days in here.
Mrs. J. Beh gave a farewell
"lawn social" to the volunteers
and their friends last Friday, 27
persons were present,
of farewell, and W. E. Sandys
very sweetly rendered a solo,
which performance reminded
those present that in him they
were losing a singer of no mean
merit.
The moment of parting was
bound to bring tears to the eyes
of a few, and those brave boys
who go to face the horrors of
warefare, showed for a brief
moment, that softer side of nature, which has to be sternly set
aside, when the man of steel
nerves faces the deadly hail of
bullets.
The Boys upon reaching Lytton,
sent the following message:—
To the citizens of Lillooet.
We, the undersigned, feel that
we cannot leave the District,
without once more expressing
our deep appreciation of the
way in which you have all treated
us since our enlistment for the
front.
Rest assured that we, "Boys of
Lillooet" Will do our utmost to uphold the faith you have put in us.
