Men Facing Each Other — Great Battle
Expected in Near Future
The meagreness of dispatches
from the war centres appears to
indicate that the censorship has
become stricter than ever.

Anderson Lake Mining and Mill- !sin£ over the cable as to the Pr0
ing Company,  known as the old
"Brett mine," that was discovered by the Brett Bros, of Lillooet,
in 1898. This is at an elevation
of about 3,300 feet above sea
level. No work has been done
on this property since 1910.
On the morning of August 13,
although rain was failing, I broke
camp and took the trail toward
the summit of McGillivary mountain, where is located the property of the McGillivary Mountain
Mines, Limited, of which:—
Mr. S. A. Cawley M.P.P., of
Chilliwack is president and J. M.
Williams is managing director,
who also personally superintends
the work.
The trail from the packers'
camp at timber-line and gradually ascended until, at the mining
camp, a distance of four miles,
an elevation of 6,800 feet is
reached and every .vestige of
timber was left behind. The
mountain-side has a slope of a-
bout 35 degrees and is covered
with a most luxuriant growth of
grass and wild flowers. The rain
turned to snow, and, when the
cabin on the mining property
was reached, a regular snowstorm, approaching a blizzard,
was raging.
McGillivary Mountain Mines
With Mr. Williams as guide, 1
started to exanine this property,
which consists of three mineral
claims, staked in September 1911
and located as the Empire, Empire No, 1, and Empire No. 2.
The Empire claim takes in the
j;pex of the mountain, and on the
north-west side is overlaid by a
glacier for about 500 feet. The
Empire No 1 claim is located to
the east (mag.) of and adjoining
the Empire, while the Empire 2
is still farther to the east and adjoining the Eagle No 1. All the
work has been done on the Em-,, . .
pire claim, and this consisted, at!Br5ain' as commerce destroyers

gress of events or as to the positions or movements of the hugh
armies, which it is assumed, are
now within striking distance. A
short Brussels despatch via London, according tc the Vancouver
Laily Province, says: "The German retirement reported Tuesday
is hecoming more marked today"
The significance of this statement can only be guessed at. It
may mean that an engagement
in force actually is in progress,
or it may refer only to the general covering movements that have
been in course of execution for
several days in Belgium.
Brussels via London Aug 12. -
A letter received here from Leige
says the German general staff is
installed in the Convent of the
Sacred Heart, which is strongly
barricaded. The Germans, it
adds, are accumulating quantities
of flour, in case they should find
themselves invested instead of
being the besieger?.
Ottawa Aug 12—The recruiting
for Canada overseas expeditionary force, which is expected to
sail from Quebec towards the end
of next week, definitely closes
tonight at all recruiting stations
in Canada. The department does
not know exactly how many residents of the Dominion have put
their names down on the enrolment lists, as detailed reports
will not commence to come in till
tomorrow. It is known that
many thousands more have enrolled than will be required to
make up the 25,000 men which it
is proposed to assemble at Val-
cartier. Of this nember, only
21.000 will be sent. One man out
of every five will be eliminated
as the result of target practice
and the other tests to be held at
the training camps.
Whatever "Belgi ans" do from
now on, even if they do not fire
another shot, they will go down
in history as a nation of great
"fighters" with a courage and
determination unlooked for by
the worid at large.

The London Times correspondent in describing the first battle
of the war, in the Daily Province
among other items states—
"Incredible as it may seem, the
unhappy Germans are marched
straight to death almost shoulder
to shoulder. The Napoleonic tat-
ics of the sudden application of
overwhelming masses of men to
achieve a desired victory or to
reach a certain ajective point
seem to have inspired the German generals, Apparently they
hoped to satisfy the greed of the
guns by a holacaust of victims."
The result of this policy, he
says, was a teriffic slaughter a-
mong the closely concentrated
ranks of the Germans. According to some accounts, the men
were actually driven forward like
sheep to the slaughter by their
officers. Terror fought against
discipline.
"When the mighty fusilades of
the Belgians began avenues were
opened up in the German ranks,"
writes the correspondent, "and
masses of dead began to accumulate in the green stretches that
lay before the forts.
From lack of space we cannot
reprint the correspondents full

Special warning has been issued
by the Chief Forester, Victoria
in regard to the uses of fire.
The extremely dry weather has
made the danger of fire throughout the District very critical, and
the latest Weather Bureau report
is to the effect that "conditions
are right for hot East and North
winds" thus creating a hazardous situation.
Lillooet District generally, is
reported as being clear of Forest
fires, but fires have been raging
in other parts of the Province.
Fire not only destroys the Timber, but leaves bare the mountain

Letter to the Editor
Dear Sir—
In this time of Crisis, it is the
duty of every British Subject to
be prepared for any emergency,
and I would like to see every
young man in this town join the
Rifle Club. Arms and ammunition are at the disposal of all
members and the firing range is
open all day long,
God of our Fathers, known of old
Lord of our far flung battle line;
'Neath whose awful hand we hold

Lest we forget, lest we forget!
Yours faithfully,
Lillooet Aug. 8. Britisher.
The meeting of the residents of
Lillooet, called for the purpose of
discussing the raising of a war
fund, took place in Satini's Hall
on Wednesday, Aug. 12, at 8.30
p.m.
Mr. W. Adams, having been
voted to the Chair, explained to
the meeting that the proposed
Lillooet War Fund was to be a
Trust fund, raised for the purpose of relieving the suffering in
Canada and the British Isles
caused by this terrible war, and
would be under the control of a
committee of gentlemen to be appointed by the meeting.
The following were elected to
act as committeemen: —Messrs.
W. Adams (Chairman of committee), S. Gibbs, E. W. Corkett,
J. S. Bell, W, J. Abercrombie,
and Dr. H. A. Christie. Mr.
Percy LeMare was elected Sec-
Treasurer.
It was decided that persons
wishing to subscribe to the War
Fund could do so either in a lump
sum, or by monthly contributions
at their own option.
The meeting decided that before any monies raised may be
used, the committee shall place
before the residents of Lillooet,
at a meeting called for this purpose, proposals for the disposition
of the funds at their disposal.
An enthuiastic and businesslike
meeting terminated with the
singing of — "God Save the King"
Lillooet Contingent of B.C.
Light Horse
As an example of the patriotic
spirit which prevails in our little
some twenty (practically all the
available voung men) of the local
boys in the short space of two
hours volunteered for service with
the B.C. Light Horse, at home or
abroad, in fact, for service where
ever they could be made the best
use of. Up till the present it has
not been officially decided as to
the number accepted, but 16 have
passed medical examination, and
are expecting to leave sometime
Saturday.
The time of departure has not
been decided on up to the present
but notices will be placed in various parts of the town of such
when it becomes known.
At the meeting of the committee appointed for the War Fund,
held at Dr, H. A. Christie's office on Main St., it was decided
to give the departing soldier boys
who have given their services,
to their King and Country, a
rousing send off.
Mr. J, S. Bell, will speak at
the time of departure, for the
residents of Lillooet, and wish
the men, God speed on their gallant mission.
The committee wish to ask all
residents of Lillooet, who are able
to attend, to be there, to show
their appreciation of the act of
those who are about to depart to
uphold the honor of the flag,
which has "braved a thousand
years the Battle and the Breeze."

surveys should have reached a-
bout 17 feet farther in, where, if
found, it would give 60 feet of
backs; from there driftings was
to be commenced, and the height
of backs would increase very rapidly. The crosscut was commenced at this point instead of
on the outcrop because of the exposed position of the latter to
snowslides. Some idea of the
clanger from these may be had
from the fact that at the time of
my visit there was the regains
of a slide several feet deep lying
between the cabin and the mine-
workin s.
The (issue, filled with vein-
matter, forms a most conspicu-"
ous land mark on the mountainside; the dip of the ore-body is at
an angle of 60 degrees towards
the south, the strike being N.
75 degrees W. (mag.). The vein-
matter is quartz carrying malachite, azurite, and grey copper.
The foot-wall is an argillite, the
hanging-wall on the surface being serpentine. Slide rock almost
fills a deep gulch to the east of
the mountain and below the mine
workings but, at a point about
700 feet lower elevation and some
1,500 feet horizontally along the
strike of the ore from the outcrop
of the mountain, I found what
was apparently a continuation of
th'i ore-body in place on the Empire No. 1 claim, and took a sample across 4 feet which assayed;
Gold, 40 cents; si! /er, 35.4 oz.;
copper 0.5 percent, a ton. These
samples were not taken to represent a "cold-blooded average,"
but as being typical of the class
of ore.
In the gulch beyond the rock-
slide I had a trood opportunity to
study the series of country-rocks,
which includes a narrow belt of
crystalline limestone next to ar-
giilities on the northern or foot-
wall side, with intrusive dykes of
igneous rocks resembling gabbro
and pegmatite granite, as well as
masses of diorite, on the southern or hanging-wall side, but no
serpentine showed on this low
level. Some fine large green
crystals, apparently hornblende
with very distinct stration marks,
were noticeable in the rock in
place in this gulch, which extends towards the east quite a
considerable distance.
Mr. Williams had a force of
four men working on the lower
adit and expected to continue
working until as late as possible,
and, if he could arrange accommodations and get in supplies, he
hoped to work all winter.
To the westward from the Empire group and on the opposite
side of the glacier on the summit
of McGillivary mountain, several
mineral claims ha\e been located
and assessment work done; the
most prominent of these are three
claims held by the estate of W.
T. Smith. Jack Johnson, and Dr.
II. Christie, of Lillooet.
