FOREST RESOURCES
OF LILLOOET DISTRICT
By P. LeMare.
With agriculture and grazing
representing the chief industry
of the Lillooet District, creating
the greatest source of wealth to
the majority of its inhabitants at
the present time, very little attention has been paid by the average citizen to the forests lying
within its borders.
As no written data has been
published giving any idea of the
extent and value of its timber resources, one cannot be surprised
at the ignorance prevailing on
this score, and as the majority of
the agricultural lands of the district lie within .the main forest
areas, and where the timber is
light and scattered, one could be
excused for assuming that there
is but little timber to be found.
That this assumption is entirely
incorrect and misleading is proven
by the fact that it has been variously estimated that within the
Lillooet Forest District there
stands approximately 4,000,000,-
000 F. B. M. of commercial timber.
This commercial timber includes the following species : Douglas
Fir (Pseudotsuga Taxifolia),
Western Soft Pine (Pinus Pond-
erosa), Western White Pine
(Pinus Monticola), Spruce (Picea
Engelmanni), Cedar (Thuja Pli-
cata), Lodgepole Pine (Pinus
Contorta), and Balsam Fir (Abies
Lasiocarpa).
The Lillooet Forest District
contains approximately 12,670.000
acres, and as the forests in the
district vary, it has been divided
into three representative divisions, each of which has its forest
characteristics, and are: The
Chilcotin, lying north of Churn
creek and west of the Fraser
river; West Lillooet, lying south
of Churn creek and West of the
Fraser river, and East Lillooet,
lying east of the Fraser river.
The largest bodies of commercial timber are found in the West
Lillooet division, and it may surprise some to learn that there are
some fifty-three timber, licenses
covering over 30,000 acres, in
the Blackwater, Pemberton Portage and Bridge River sections of
this division.
Douglas Fir is the predominant
species occurring throughout the
district, there being an estimated
stand of over 2,000,000,000 F.B.
M. of commercial timber. Its
maximum size is reached in the
Pemberton Portage, where it
grows in close relation to the
coast conditions, attaining a
diameter of eight feet and a height
of two hundred and forty feet,
its growth varying throughout
the district on account of altitude
and moisture conditions. It is
the most extensively used tree in
the district today, being utilized
in many different ways for building and construction purposes,
for which it is eminently suited
on account of its strength, weight
and durability.
Spruce comes second as regards
amounts available, and is found
growing throughout the district
wherever conditions are favorable.    It is used, though not ex-
Contmued on Page Three.
THREE TRAINS A WEEK
The P. G. E. railway will
positively run three passenger trains a week between
Lillooet and Squamish, commencing next Monday, 15th
inst, on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, returning
the following days. Freight
trains will run irregular,
twice a week.

AGAIN IN TROUBLE
John Stewart Parnell, alias
Cultus Jack, was sent up for
trial at Clinton on Monday on the
charge of wounding with intent
to do grievous bodily harm. His
wife was the victim.
DIED AT VICTORIA
The death occurred on May 1st
at St. Joseph's hospital, Victoria,
of Alexander McArthur, aged 81
years, born in Auchnagatt. Scotland. The late Mr. McArthur
was one of many men who went
to Cariboo in 1862 in search of
gold, living there many years.
He resided in Lillooet for a time
about twelve years ago, afterwards going to Victoria to live.
He was very highly respected and
his funeral was largely attended.
He leaves two brothers, William
at Brandon, Man., and James in
Victoria. One sister resides in
Edinburgh, Scotland.

OUR MAIL SERVICE.
About two weeks ago the
Thursday mail from Lytton
was discontinued without
warning and for no apparent
reason. Last week the Superintendent of Railway Mail
Service informed the postmaster here that there would
be a tri-weekly mail service
over the P. G. E. railway,
commencing last Monday.
This bright individual evidently sits in his easy chair
and gives instructions without even going to the trouble
to find out whether they can
be carried out or not. The
P.G.E. railway is still running only twice a week and
will not make any change until the road from here to
Clinton is properly ballasted.
In the meantime we are
without a mail service of any
kind from Wednesday morning until Saturday morning.
It is a big handicap to business men and a great annoyance to all the people.
The old settlers claim tney
had a.better service in "62 ,
at least it was more reliable.
We want our Thursday mail
service resumed and continued until such time as the
P.G.E. railway can assure us
that it is in a position to give
us the service we are entitled
to. We have been humbugged long enough.

WHAT OUR FRIENDS SAY ABOUT US.
BOARD OF TRADE.
The Lillooet Board of Trade
shows  signs  of awakening
after peacefully slumbering
during the winter months,
and  we hope our business
men  will give the officers
every encouragement in their
endeavours to put the Board
on  a  sound  footing.    We
want such an institution now
more than ever before    Our
citizens will able to get together   and  discuss  many
matters of vital importance
to the welfare of the town
and district.   For instance,
we need a more up-to-date
system    of    lighting   the
streets   and    houses   than
what we  have at present.
Strangers  getting off   the
train at night are plunged into almost total darkness and
their first impressions of Lillooet   are   not what they
should be.     We want a few
lights between the town and
station and we can get them
if we go about it in the right
way.    The matter of a road
to the Bridge River mines by
way of North Fork will also
have to be taken up and discussed.    Fruit growing and
ranching should receive a lot
of attention at this time. We
believe the Board of Trade
will be of inestimable benefit
to the town of Lillooet, and
we trust the citizens will give
The Lillooet Prospector has
freatly improved since W. E.
[orrison, of the New Westminster Columbian took over
the management. It is now
a readable little paper well
worthy of the support of advertisers and of the general
public of Lillooet and its
environs. Mr. Morrison evidently intends doing his full
share in driving Lillooet to
the front and all who expect
to benefit by such developments should support him in
his work. - Nicola Valley

This is from our big brother in the east: "I receive
the Prospector every week
and it is very nice little
paper. Stay with the job,
and they will elect you mayor
in about two years and then
you can pass a by-law to
keep the horses off the
streets."   	
From a gentleman in New
Westminster : "I am glad to
see the paper looking so neat
and trim. To my mind there
is a great future before that
district and anyone who can
hold on will be rewarded bye
and bye. Every one I hear
speak of Lillooet has a good
word to say for the place."

tensively as yet on account of its
present inaccessibility, for lumber and other purposes. The commercial stand is estimated at approximately 421,000,000 F.B.M.
Western Soft Pine,^ the commercial stand of which; is approximately 382,000,000 F.B.M., occurs only in the southern half of
the district. The best commercial stands are found in the
Bridge River, and along Loon
creek and the Bonaparte river
sections, which is the northern
limit of this species. 'The maximum development of the tree is
4 feet in diameter and 150 feet
high, the lumber being used for
all building and finishing purposes.
Both the Western Red Cedar
and the Western White Pine are
only found in commercial stands
of any extent in tha Pemberton
Portage country, although a few
million feet also occur in the
Canim-Mahood lake portion of
the district. No cedar has been
sawn on a commercial scale yet,
but with transportation facilities
closer to the limits, an opportunity would be afforded to operate
them successfully.
; The Lodgepole Pine occurs
throughout the district, but is
found more extensively on the
higher plateaus and elevations,
its altitudinal range lying between 8,000 and 6,500 feet, It
is one of the smallest of the commercially important pines, and as
yet it has not been made much
use of commercially in this district on account of the immense
quantities of the othert and more
valuable timber trees available.
Large quantities of it are being
cut now in the Cran brook' and
Fort George districts in B.C. and
it is being extensively lumbered
in Montana, Wyoming, Colorado
and in north-eastern Utah. It
has also been  largely used for
ties in the construction of the
northern railroads, and for building and fencing purposes by
ranchers, farmers and miners. It
will be largely used in the future
for pulp, and will prove a valuable asset to this district, and a
profitable industry when cheap
transportation facilities are provided.
The Balsam Fir, too, occurs
only on the high elevations, and
although a commercial timber,
,will not be used extensively for
some time yet on account of its
inaccessibility. At present miners are the only persons using it
to any extent, for mining timbers,
building purposes and firewood.
At a conservative estimate of
50 cents per M.B.F. stumpage
value, the total worth of the
standing commercial timber is in
the neighbourhood of $2,000,000,
or in other words, if valued in its
manufactured form at cost, such
as lumber, etc., at the low figure
of $10.00 per M., it would represent to the district a sum of nearly $40,000,000 to be divided by
labour, merchants' supplies and
equipment, interest on capital,
and insurance and taxes.
If we add to the above value
the worth of the immense areas
which have been burned over and
are now restocking with young
reproduction, and which are not
as yet commercial, we should
largely augment the above valuation.

YE^ST
MAKES PERFECT BREAD THE PROSPECTOR
WATER AND SCOTCH."
"All sorts of things was done
in the creek above the town in
them days. People used to wash
their shirts and socks in'it, etc.,
etc."-"Old Timer" in Lillooet
Prospector.
The author apologizes to the
gentle reader for having perpetrated the following :—
In days of old, when "lust of gold"
Brought folks in search of riches,
The water cold progressed and
rolled,
Towards   town   through   dirty
ditches.
The man whose pitch was near
the ditch
Oft found it very handy
To rinse the dirt from out his shirt
And make it "fine and dandy."
Such was the love of folks above
For having all things stainless,
They used the ditch for bathing in
And thought themselves   quite
blameless.
"Old Timer" says most truthfully
The stuff that percolated
Down to the   town,   was such
that he
To drink it would have hated.
And worse than that, were he to
tell
The things that happened those
days,
How socks were laundered in the
ditch,
'Twould make a fellow's  "hair
raise."
And as he went to fill his pail,
His feelings would forlorn be.
He'd visions of a "shirt cocktail"
And could "September Morn" see.
The really bum "residuum"
That came down town through
ditches
Had poison germs, "Old Timer"
says,
And sundry scraps of breeches.
And so they damned it, piped it,
too,
And reached the highest notches
Of waterworks efficiency,
But what about the "Scotches"?
If "Mac" would be immortalized
And numbered with the great be,
He'll lay the "whisky" on through
pipes,
But then, what would the rate be?
And so each man in Lillooet
Can call for what he chooses,
And that's the proper scheme,
you bet,
If no one "over-boozes."
