LILLOOET, B. C, FRIDAY, JANUARY 26, 1917.
$2 PER YEAR
CARD PARTY
On Wednesday eVening of this
week a large number af Lillooet's
citizens gathered together at the
home of Mrs. J. S. Bell. The
occasion being a card party to
swell the funds of the "Women's
Patriotic League." Curds were
ployed till 11.30 when refreshments appeared (also disappeared
in goodly style, which argues
well for the quality of the goodies.
During the evening Messrs W.
T. Bridge and W. B. French
rendered sweet music, (and as
one of the guests was heard to
remark) it was fine to listen to
the strains of, piano, mandoline
and voice.
Winners of the prizes were:—
1st Mrs. Christie, and Mr. LeMare; Booby, A. Ludwig, and
thereby hangs a tale.
A very pleasant evening was
spent which will long be remembered by all present, and, altho
the small sum of only 15c was
charged for refreshments, the
sum of $10.50 was added to the
funds,
Mrs. Bell desires to thank all
those who attended, for their
presence, thereby making the
evening the success it was.
HYDRAULIC RESOURCES
The number of coyotes killed in
this locality this year is 390 and
the bounty paid is $1170.00.
Your attention is called to the
Dominion War Certificates. Full
particulars of which can be obtained at the local bwvik.
A great chinook wind has been
blowing for the past week, and
the snow accompanied by Jack
Frost have been taking their departure at a rapid pace.
Mr. Sperry and Mr. Leudke,
of* the Pacific Great Eastern Rly.
were in town this week. They
eyed the town up from different
positions of vantage.
"Am I good enough for you?"
he sighed.
"No," said the girl candidly,
"you's not, but your too good for
any other girl."
Word was received this week
from a very reliable source to the
effect that things are beginning
to open up in the East and that
money will be plentiful in the
spring.
Lillooet's tonsorial artist (Mas-
sargie" as he is most endearingly
called by the local sports) is once
again back at the old stand. He
has just recovered from an attack
of the measles.
The Inland Water Transportation Section Imperial Royal Engineers are calling for 500 men
for immediate overseas service.
Full particulars can be seen on
the posters desplayed on the side
of the "Prospector" office.
A number of communications
have been received from different
places concerning "hunting conditions" in the Lillooet district,
and the present indications are
that this year will be a record
one for the visit of hunters to
our vast hunting grounds.
An engagement is reported between a number of British Naval
boats and a number of German
boats. The details are lacking
owing to the engagement having
taken place in the dark. However, we are confident that whenever "Jack" meets the "Hun,"
it sure is hell for the Hun
In estimating the value of Canada's Hydraulic resources and
their importance with reference
to industrial development, the
extent to which electro-chemical
processes have entered into some
phases, at least, of nearly every
branch of our industrial life is
not generally appreciated.
A small beginning in electroplating, two generations ago, has
developed until the great bulk of
the copper output of the world is
electrolytically refined. The elec-
trolyis of common salt is the
basis of the electrolytic alkali industry, the products of which are
caustic soda, metalic sodium,
chlorates, and hypochlorites. The
electric furnace has created a
host of new industries, producing
chiefly abrasives, graphite, silicon, ferro-alloys, refined steel,
phosphorus and calcium carbide.
It has also been tested experimentally as a competitor of the
combustion furnace in the metallurgy of many metals.
Used as a electrolytic furnace,
we have the very important application to the production of a-
luminum. The industrial use of
electric discharges through gases
is still in its infancy, but we have
ozone and nitric acid among the
products, the former used for
sterilization, and the latter as a
basis for fertilizers and explosives.
Every one of these industries
consumes large quantities of energy. Whereas the refining of
lead requires only 120 k.w h. per
ton, we have consumptions as
high as 4,000 k.w.h. per ton for,
other metals, The aluminum
furnace requires 25,000 k.w.h.
per ton of product.
The electro-chemical industries
have grown to be of great value
to countries which possess good
opportunities in water power resources, as they have a fundamental interest in the developments of cheap power.—L.G.D.
in Conservation.
WILL SEE IT THROUGH
One reason why there is no
prospect of peace at the present
time is the fact that Germany,
apart altogether from whatever
terms she might agree to, has not
been defeated. She has not felt
either the suffering or the humiliation of defeat and desaster
upon a grand scale. She has
been beaten off at Verdum; she
has been forced back a few
bloody miles along the Somme,
and her internal condition may
be as grave as the most optimistic of her enemies believe; but if
this war were to end tomorrow
with Belgium and France and
Serbia and Roumania evacuated
and compensated, the German
armies could still hold their heads
proudly erect and the German
people would continue to regard
the Hohenzollerhs as the Lord's
Annointed. The German fleet
would remain intact, easily the
second most powerful fleet in the
world, and defiant of the ability
of the most powerful fleet to do
it injury. In other words, the
German spirit would not have
been chastened; it would continue
to boast "Deutschland ueber
Alles," and could again be fused
to the heat of war by some other
Kaiser. In the next war the
German armies would fight even
better than they have fought in
this. This war has given them
a tradition of valor that they did
not possess when they entered
it.

We regret to announce that
Mrs. Geo. Prosser has been taken ill with the measles. We wish
her a speedy recovery to health
and strength.
A 6heque has been forwarded
to the Canadian Patriotic Fund,
Victoria, for the sum of $129.25
representing the amount collected
by the local branch for the month
of December.
The sum of $15.00 has been received by the Treasurer of the
Canadian Red Cross Fund (thru
Mr. Caspar Phair) from Mr.
Wynn Johnson of Alkali Lake.
The committee wish to express
their appreciation of Mr. Johnson's kind donation.
Mr. and Mrs. G. Carson, passed
through town this week on their
way to Pavilion, from the coast.
Mrs. Carson has just returned
from Bellingham, where she went
to be present at the marriage of
her sister Vesta, to Mr. Fred
Harmon, of Castor, Alberta.

When Mark Twain was editor of
a weekly newspaper one of his
subscribers .wrote him that he
had found a spider in his newspaper when it reached him and
inquired whether it was a sign of
good luck. The noted humorist
replied that the spider was simply looking over the paper to see
which merchants were not advertising so he could visit them, spin
a web across their door and live
contented ever afterwards.
Mr. P. Le Mare, Local Forest
Chief, has just returned from an
extended trip throughout the
Lillooet Forest District, on a tour
of inspection covering land examinations, timber sales, etc.,
Mr. Le Mare was as far north as
Cheryacut, and reports that the
weather conditions, though cold
at times, have been very good
for the stockmen and ranchers,
there being but little snow thus
enabling stock to procure feed
easily on the winter ranges.
So intense is the New York

WILL AUSTRIA SECEDE
There appears to be good
grounds for supposing that
Austria is feeling the pinch
of the war to a greater ex-
t e n t than even Germany.
The young emperior has just
come to the throne to find a
state of things that cannot
be by any means agreeable
to him. He can hardly view
with equanimity the prospect that his empire will dissolve before his eyes. It is
not improbable that there
has been friction between
him and the Kaiser. The
new ruler will naturally desire to be more than a vassal
to Germany. Being a young
man he may be supposed to
be disinclined to play second
fiddle to Wilhelm at Berlin.
Austria has been invaded
by Russian and Italian armies. So far Austria-Hungary has acted as a sort of
shock-absorber for Germany
—a first line of defence for
the Kaiser's empire. If
Charles of Austria reads the
lessons of history he must
see that a victory for Germany would soon mean his absorption into the German
system, and he might soon
be without a crown. All except pro-Germaas-will wish
to see the views of the two
monarchs become more and
more divergent, and that
even in Austria the democracy will at last lift its head
and refuse to be driven to
the slaughter in the cause of
injustice.
FRENCH AND ENGLISH
One thing that our Tommies will i acquire in France
will be some smattering of
the  French  tongue.   Some
of them will continue the acquirement thus commenced.
With others it will become
merely a fading memory.
They will remember a word
or two with which to amuse
their children or companions
when they tell their stories
of the war.
Those who go on with their
French will act the wiser
part, since to know at least
one language besides one's
own must certainly be considered a requisite of education. Nor should those who
have stayed at home and not
come in contact with our
GalHc allies, neglect any op-
portunitiy they may have of
learning French. Even in
mature years it is not a bad
thing to study a new language. When she was a
very old woman, the late
Julia Ward Howe, being
asked how it was that her
faculties were so well preserved, said that she "had
made a practice of learning
a fresh language every ten
years." William Corbett,
whose name was once well
known as a writer in Eng-
1 a n d, taught himself the
French language after he
had arrived at man's estate
and was working for his living. All that is necessary,
at first, is to get an elementary book or two and give it
regular study. Nothing can
be done in language-learning
without persistent effort.
But the habit of acquirement
is one that grows with use.
Most people waste a portion
of their waking hours. Some
are at a loss what to-do to
"pass the time," though such
a confession usualy betokens
a weak will and a neglected
brain. One hour a day steadily applied would soon give a
person of reasonable intelligence a working knowledge
of the French language.
There has recently been a
movement on the part of
Ontario and Quebec with a
view to better relations between French Canadians and
English Canadians. A number of leading Ontarians went
to Quebec and were royally
entertained. In return a
number of leading men from
Quebec recently went to Ontario and were greeted in the
friendliest way in Toronto.
There is every reason why
everything tending to promote good feeling between
the two races should be promoted. And it should be remembered that the French
took the leading part in the
early settlement of this Canada of ours.

Columbia, and it is an honour to uphold the history and
tradition of this splendid
unit.
We want men, and yet
more men to jump into the
breaches. Any information
required on this subject can
xbe secured by writing or calling at the Irish Fusiliers recruiting offices, Lieut. J. M.
Burge, 134, Hastings St. W.
or in the rear of the Hotel
Irving, corner _, of Columbia
and Hastings St. Vancouver,
Wake Up; the bugle sounds.
The Fall In.
Such a conclusion of the
conflict is not only abhorrent
to the reason of the Allied
nations, but is insulting to
their temper. The fighting
blood has been fairly roused;
and nothing short of utter
defeat or decisive victory will
abate it. The Allies are now
as warlike as was Germany
two years ago last August.
The Allied armies are determined to defeat the German
armies; the British navy is
burning with a desire to'try
conclusions with the German
fleet. The Alliedpeoples regard the German people as
their enemies. They want
to have no dealings with the
German nation but military
dealings. To end the war
now, on any better terms for
Germany than the terms that
would follow the utter defeat of her armies in the
field, would be to commit a
monstrous outrage on national spirit. The British nation,
for one, has not had enough
fighting. Notwithstanding
the tremendous loss of life
and the spending of billions
of dollars, the desire to fight
until Germany falls to her
knees was never so strong as
it is now. Germany is not
to be let off by merely acknowledging that she was in
the wrong. Britain can afford to be magnanimous to
an absolutely defeated Germany; she can make no terms
with a Germany strong and
still relying upon the sword.

The,X)nly Way
All goats delight to take a bite
Of posters on the fence.
Both night and day they chew away
With appetites immense.
And then again the merry rain
Will posters wash away.
You can't ensure, that's true for sure
How long the sheets will stay.
So all wise guys—they advertise
In papers, so they do-
Where rain cannot hurt it a bit
Or goats break in and chew.—Ex.

TO THOSE THEY LEFT BEHIND.
(A Poem for the Patriotic Fund.)
Tour wives flit round about your homes,
And give you of their care;
Some of the boys who went left wives
As kind and just as fair;
Your wives have all the joys they need,
Their dresses warm and neat—
How could you see a soldier's wife
111 clad upon the street)
You have your little children safe,
You watch their happy play,
They laugh and romp about your knees
Till you are glad as they;
Some boys who went have children too,
Who oft their days beguiled;
God loves the children; He'll love thoso
Who help a soldier's child.
You still possess a mother
To give her love to you;
The boys who went have mothers
Who dearly love them too;
Then for the fond eld mothers
Who watch, and fret and pray
Arise above all selfishness   *
And give your mite to-day.
You have your father living,
But age has round him clung,
Yet he proclaims how he would fight
If he were strong and young; ■";
The soldier boys left fathers
As noble and as true;
Give, give for those old grey haired men
Who gave their sons for you.
And there are others dear to you
Whom you are joyed to tend,
Old folks to whom you long have been
A comforter and friend;
The boys who went left these ones too
Appealing to your store;
You will not miss all that is asked, "
So give a little more.
Thus giving and thus helping
You will be aiding on
The struggle that will have no end
Till victory has shone;
Each bill you give is as a shell
Shot at the Kaiser's heart;
Shoot, shoot, and shoot until that hell
Is shot and rent apart.
Oh! drop those dollar bombs until
Our fiendish German foes
Are beaten back to the abyss
Prom which at first they rose;
Give, give your brave assistance
TJfcttil the earth is free—
Upon the struggle nests the fate
Of you as well as me.
—M. A. HARGADON.
