FRIDAY, JULY   5,   1912

Lillooet's   Dominion   Day   Grand   Success
"They're off." .
For three days this week,
Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday these were the keywords that served to manifest the keen interest being
taken by the large crowd
that witnessed the best races
and the biggest celebration
ever held in Lillooet on a
Dominion Day.
From every portion of the
district the crowd was drawn
and the neighboring towns
and settlements each had
their representatives. Clinton, Ashcroft and Lytton
sent in several auto loads
during the three days and
the contingent from the
Pemberton cou ntry was the
largest that ever came out
that section to partake of
Lillooet's hospitality and enjoy her celebration.
Ideal weather conditions
prevailed. At no time was
the weather to warm for
comf jrt and the early-morning showers kept the track
and street in excellent condition. Only once or twice
was it necessary to use the
new street sprinkler which
the committee so thoughtful
ly purchastd.
The town was in its gala
dress. From one end to the
other flags were in evidence
while all the principle busi-
, ness houses were draped in
bunting. No expense was
spared in decorating the
town in a manner fit for the
occasion.
From the time the "big
show" was opened with the
parade of school children on
Monday morning until the
musicians played the last
strains of the "Home, Sweet
Home" waltz early Thursday
morning, the program was
put through in a snappy
manner which never allowed
a dull moment and which reflects great credit on the
judges, starters and track
officials.
A feature of the celebra
tion was the Indian brass-
band from the Pemberton
Meadows. This organization
had played in Lillooet before
so there was excellent opportunity to note the marked improvement in their
work. Their music served
to put spirit and zest into
the celebration and they
did themselves and their
leader, Mr. Enias Jacobs,
proud. Their music at the
dances were especially appreciated.
As usual, the horse races
demanded the most attention
and created the most interest, although the other
events proved interesting.
Good entries, close finishes
and plenty of surprises weie
the rule with the horse racing end of the program. No
more could be asked by the
public. There were limes
when close finishes tasked
the judges ability in giving
decisions but on the whole
the was less dissatisfaction
among the horse-men than
is generally the case.
Among the other features
on the program the automobile race stands first in the
amount of interest created
and, in fact, gave the "ponies" a "close run for the
money" when it came to
stirring up enthusiasm. This
was an event that was new
and novel in this section, and
it is probable that there are
but few places in the country
where an auto race has been
run under like conditions.
The road to Seton lake, over
which the cars were driven,
while in good condition for a
mountain road was not wide
enough to permit the autos
running side by side so they
were compelled to run
against time. And then
there are places where a single miscalculation or the loss
of one's head for a moment
when driving at racing speed
meant being dashed over a
bluff into   the creek many
feet below. These conditions
coupled with the many short
and difficult curves and turns
speaks well of the daring and
skill of Lee Loring, driving
the winning Russell, and Al
Scott, at the wheel of a Cadillac.
- The winners in the principle events follow:
. The first race was fcr the
"Bridge River Stakes" with
four entries: "Lady Uren" owned by Tyee Jimmy with Tommy
Hurley up; "Breasty" owned by
James Dickey and Chisholm up;
"Reddy" owned by Scottie and
"Dan Wing" owned by Willie
Frank. "Lady Uiui" was the
winner in two heats but owing
to a misunderstanding all bets
were declared off.
In the Gentlemen's Saddle-
liorse Race for the Tiffin Cup,
"Starlight" owned by George
Carson of Pavilion was' first and
"Paul" owned by Paul Santini
was second. This cup must hi
won for two seasons by the same
owner before it becomes his properly.
Results of the Cowboy Race:
"Broody" owned and ridden by
Willie Frank was lirst, "Brenim"
owned by Francis Billy was second.
The 100-yard footrace was
won by Charlie Wallace of the

of LiMooet second.

A. Phair; G. B. Beluid was second and Leo Beluid was third.
Charles Noel won the Potatoe

Hudson second.

"Dandy," owned by Alex Tom
won the Indian Sacdle Hcise
Race and "Unix." Billy Williams
was second.
There were seven entries in

won by G. Beluid with Harold
Clarke second and Lawrence Edward's thirl. This race was run

besides a silver cup for the winner and a silver medal for second
Tha program on the third day-
opened with the 100-yard dash
for the Bridge River Road Camp
boys, I.co Beluid was first and
Wesley Truax was second.
The ien dollars at the top of
the Greasy Pole was brought
down by Charles Rogers.
The big event of the celebration
was the mile race for the Lillooet
Stakes. This race was practically a matched affair between
"Lady Uren" owned by Tyee
Jimmy, with Tommy Hurley up
and "Breasty," James Dickey,
owner,ridden by Corby McKnight
"Breasty"was an easy favorite
before the race but before the
final heat two to one money on
"Lady Uren" v.ent begging.
"Breasty" won the first heat
but "Lady Uren" had no trouble
in capturing the two final*".
George Carson's colt "Starlight"
also started in this race.
"Broody" was easy winner in
two races en the afternoon of
the third day, winning for her
owner, Willy Frank, the gold
moui.ted spurs donated by the

mile matched race 1 el ween

which only the members of the

their respective instruments,was

subscription to the Vancouver

OF THE WEEK
I   Know   Not   What   the   Truth May  be
I  Know   That  This Was Told  to   Me.
Mr. Charles Camsell, geologist for the Dominion government, accompanied by
Mr. A. M. Bateman, chief of
the geological survey party
that has been working on
Cadwallader Creek, came
down from that section today. Mr. Bateman's party
have now completed their
work in the Bridge River

buying supplies for a trip in
as far as Chilco Lake making
a reeonnoissance survey of
that section with a view of
reporting on it as a field for
prospectors. He will bring
his party back by way of
the North Fork, also making
a report on that locality. After this trip they will go to
McGillivray Creek, to prepare
a report on that district.
Mr. Camsell will leave by
auto tomorrow.

Mrs. J. G. Y. Burkholder
accompanied by her son Harold, from North Fork, was a
Lillooet visitor this week.
Ray Elliott, from the
Squamish, came in this week
to take in the Dominion Day
sports. He left the latter
part of the week, returning
home by way of the Pemberton.
Mr. and Mrs. W. G. Carson of Pavilion were visitors
this week for the big celebra
tion.
Among the Clinton visitors
were W. S. Ritchie, Jas.
Robertson, Leslie McDonald,
A. McDonald, Jr., Robert
Fraser and Johnie Pollard.
Misses Mary and Louisia
Santini are visiting in Lillooet
for a few days.

GRAND SUCCESS
(Continued From Page 1.)
team took the honors in the tug-
of-war.   The  three   mile   relay
race was won by Tekiah's string
of gallopers.
The Russell car, driven by Lee
Loring, was an easy winner in
the 1-2 mile dash for automobiles
and again in the match race to
Seton Lake and return. This car
made the six miles and a half in
13 minutes and 40 seconds against 16 minutes made by the Cadillac driven by Al Scott. Mr.
Scott had considerable trouble
with the clutch on his machine
or his time would undoubtedly
have been cut down materially.
There was a free dance given
on each evening at all of which
there was a record attendance.
It is impossible to give the
financial report of celebration
owing to a few outstanding-
accounts that have not been
turned in, but as soon as possible it will be published in
full.
"Ha! Ha! Have you seen
Dora?"
The champion "rain-makers"—Dan Hurley and the
new sprinkling cart.
Did you notice Walter
Keeble, the auto magnate
from Lytton, on the Third —
an eight time winner as* an
announcer.
The one regret—Harry
Keary failed to wear his long
ulster.
The busiest man in town
— President Arthur Noel.
Lillooet's real live jockey
—the boy in the red shirt.
Question: Was Wesley
Truax, the Tyaughton rancher, swimming or running in
the Bridge River running
race?
We were glad to welcome
Corby McKnight, the Lytton
jockey, on the Third. His
work astride "Breasty" is
worthy of mention.
The one best bet—Mark
Eagleson and Buster Brown
in the Fat Man's race.
