LILLOOET,   B. C, FfiltUY, JULY 25, 1913.
Immediate Construction of
Lytton-Lillooet line.
S. A. Nacfarlane Die Here Next
Week to Start Work.
Following on the suggestion
made in the Prospector that construction of the Lillooet-Lytton
telephone line should be undertaken at an early date, telegraphic advices have been received
from Mr. S. A. Macfarlane that
the work is to be commenced by
the Dominion Government. •
Mr. Macfarlane informs this
journal that he will be in Lillooet
next week for the purpose of
starting the work, and that material will be rushed in with all
possible expedition. Unless un-
forseen difficulties arise, the line
should be in operation in about
one month.
That this service will be of immense value to merchants and
residents in each town, as well
as to intervening ranchers, can
be readily understood. For many
years its need has been keenly
felt, and efforts have been made
-to secure 14i eatoJiliahmjak* -

Indian Catches Beaver in Net en
Fraser River.
A unique capture of a beaver
on the Lytton road on Friday
morning was related to the Prospector by Arthur Martley. An
Indian started from his home at
the 30-mile, at 5 a. m., storting
down the river, fishing for salmon with a hand-net He quickly
caught a couple of the fish, when
he saw a beaver approaching. The
little animal swam towards the
net its meshes arousing its curiosity. Standing perfectly still
until the beaver waa in the net
the Indian effected the capture.
At 7 o'clock he was shoveling
gravel for the government, on
the Big Slide, at $8 a day.

Breaking Into Safe of Excelsior Hotel
Robber Gets $122.
An unknown robber effected
entrance to the office at the rear
of the Excelsior Hotel bar, on
Tuesday night, succeeded in
breaking into a small safe, and
stole $122. No clue has been discovered as to the identity of the
thief, although the police are at
work on the case. Indications
point to the burglary having been
committed by one well acquainted
with the house. Entrance was
gained from the rear of the build*
ing by way of the kitchen, and
through the dining room. A pass
key which turned the locks of the
intervening doors was found on
the rifled safe.
By some oversight the combination of the outer door of the safe
had been left set. The lock of
the inner door was turned by
means of a duplicate key. Some
silver, to the value of about $16,
was left undisturbed.

Having leisurely walked through
Pemberton Meadows, from Newport, L. M. B. Falconbridge and
C. I. Neal arrived in Lillooet on
Saturday, The twopedeatriaaai*

Several realty deals at high
figures have been put through
this season, testifying to the
value of the land, especially from
an agricultural standpoint. Baker
recently sold ten acres of his
ranch at $600 an acre.
In all parts of the Meadows
the crops are looking exceptionally fine and give promise of wonderful harvests. The wagon road

Manuring Editor.
JULY 25,1913.
From time to time in various newspapers have appeared comments on the injustice
and evil effects of the system
of turning loose discharged
prisoners without supplying
them with necessary means
to return to their homes.
A case which was heard a
few days ago in the Kamloops police court illustrates
clearly what has. long been
too obvious a defect in the
treatment of prisoners, and
also shows its local applica-.
tion. An Indian woman from
Lillooet on her discharge
from the provincial jail at
Kamloops, instead of being
sent back to her own reserve,
appears to have been merely
turned loose without help or
counsel, to sink or swim. She
has fallen quickly enough into the hands of the police
again, and thus has sunk
deeper into the mire of misfortune, and caused trouble
to the city authorities, expense to the people, and general unpleasantness.
This unjust treatment of
released prisoners has not
only been a subject of news-
Eaper and private comment,
ut grand juries in various
parts of the province have
expressed their views upon
the present practice. At the
last assizes field at Kamloops
the grand jury presented this
matter in very direct terms
to His Lordship Chief Justice
Hunter{ who concurred absolutely in the condemnation
passed and the need for
remedy suggested.
Immediate reform is urgently needed. Under the
present system, instead of
having a remedial effect, a
jail term too often becomes
but an apprenticeship to
crime, unless the prisoner is
properly cared for on discharge. 	
Chamber of Mines.
In a letter to the Prospector, Mr. F. S. Pilling,
secretary of the Vancouver
Chamber of Mines, writing
of the work of that institution, says:
"At the present time the
Lillooet district is very poorly
represented, and in view of
the visit of the International
Geological Congress which is
now assembling in the east,
and is due in Vancouver on
the 27th Aug., we wish to
have as representative a collection of the minerals of the
province as can be got together.
"What we would like to see
done is that the Lillooet people should take a leaf out of
the book of the Stewart folk.
In that city the citizens
banded themselves into an
organization entitled Stewart
Citizens' Association, and
they collected from the various mines in the Portland
Canal district representative
ores, packed and shipped
them to us entirely free of
charge This was made possible by the co-operation of
the owners of the properties,
the transfer companies who
brought them into the city
of Stewart and there packed
them and. delivered tnem to
the steamship company, and
the citizens who put up the
necessary freight charges.
"The result is that the
Chamber of Mines has reserved the whole of one bio-
show case for the Portland
Canal specimens, and a very
fine collection they make.
The case contains specimens
from sixty-five different properties in that district.
"Now, if the Vancouver
Chamber of Mines is prepared to provide exhibition cases
free of charge (they cost us
upwards of sixty dollars
apiece), and is also prepared
to pay a heavy rent for the
exhibition rooms and provide
the necessary organization
to look after the exhibit and
world-wide enquiries, it does
not seem to me to be too
much to ask of the mining
community that they shall
furnish representative specimens from each mining district and deliver them to us
free of charge. For, the income of this organization is
derived solely from membership dues of five dollars per
annum, and from donations
made by the people of Vancouver and district, and we
simply cannot afford to bear
the whole cost of a work
which is being done solely in
the interests of the mining
industry of the province.
"As instances of the good
work we are doing, we recently received a visit from
Sir Richard McBride, Premier and Minister of Mines,
who, after investigation of
our work, expressed himself
astonished and impressed
with what we are doing.
Another instance was that of
the director of a large English firm of steel makers,
who, whilst visiting the local
branch of the house, covered
a good deal of the province,
and constantly found evidences of the good work we
are doing; so much so, that
he sent us a donation of $60.
"And I may add that, although we do nothing in the
way of listing properties for
sale, and do nothing of a
brokerage nature, we have
evidence that if preliminary
investigations are supported,
at least three big firms of
manufacturers using some of
the earths and mineral products of the province are
likely to establish in British
[Columbia,   local plants for
the manufacture of their products, at an estimated aggregate cost of $2,600,000. If
this and other schemes go
through all right, as there is
every indication of being the
case, the credit will be solely
due to the activities of the
Chamber of Mines, and in
particular to the persistence
with which it was followed
up, or dug out the necessary
information for the parties
making the enquiry, and provided them with all that they
have asked for.
"It is now up to Lillooet
to show us that they mean
to do something."

Progress Club Initiates Important Project.
Have Too Long Favored Foreigners,
Says Commissioner Rowe.
Vancouver Progress Club is initiating a campaign to promote
arid foster a "Buy B. C. Products
Spirit." Speaking at a recent
conference of the club, Dr. Elliot
Rowe, commissioner of the club,
"What is needed is to encourage a sentiment in favor of British Columbia products, both natural and manufactured. This need
not be looked on as narrow and
parochial, for it is not. A farmer
owning a farm who said 'I will
not till my soil. I would rather
buy my products from my neighbor,' would be considered a fit
subject for an asylum, but this
has been the attitude of the people of this province. The time
has come for the people of this
city to see the importance of
earning some money. Up to date
we have been making it more or
less easily but not earning it.
There will be no development in
the province until we take the
numerous raw materials here at
hand and turn them into finished
He went on to state that the
city would never be built up if
the only money that is staying in
this city is the profit that wholesalers make from the sale of outside goods..
Owing to a- number of causes,
principally high freight rates,
the manufacturers of Vancouver
could not ship to the East, and
CDnsequently had to rely upon the
home market, so that it behooved
all to use their goods, he continued. As a last suggestion the
speaker was emphatic in stating
that the Canadian Manufacturers'
Association was diametrically opposed to the British Columbia
manufacturer, and the sooner
that the latter cut away from the
eastern organization the better it
would be for manufacturing in
the province.
Dominion Government to Establish
Additional Experimental Farms.
As announcad by Hon. Martin
Burrell, minister of agriculture,
when he came to this province
from Ottawa last fall, the Dominion Government will establish experimental farms at a point between Hazleton and Fort George
aid also in the Okanagan. 'lo
assist in the work of such establishment, Mr. J. H. Grisdale,
director of Dominion Government experimental farms, has
arrived here. This week he will
visit Summerland, where the
Okanagan farm will be located on
from 100 to 150 acres of bench
land. He will be accompanied
by Mr. P. C. Elf red Smith. Mr.
Grisdale has on this trip completed an inspection of the government farm at Sydney, Vancouver
Ashcroft Supports Lillooet's Request
For Assisted Irrigation.
Following the appeal made by
Lillooet to the Provincial Agricultural Commission for assisted
irrigation of farming lands, evidence along similar lines was laid
before the Commission at its
sitting at Ashcroft last week.
The strongest point laid before
the commission was that of adequate irrigation for the thousands
of acres of arid land in the dry
belt. It was entirely out of the
scope of private farmers to cope
with a difficulty of this magnitude. The government should
take this in hand with a view to
constructing ditches and supplying water to settlers at nominal
Those who attended the meeting in an official way were: C. A.
Semlin, Cache Creek; M. Mac-
abee, Eight-mile creek; P. Parks,
Cache creek; G. N. Barclay,Ashcroft; W. Hammond, Basque; G.
A. Paull, Venables valley, and
W. C. Adam, Ashcroft.
One point raised by Mr. Barclay was to the effect that nothing had ever been done by the
government by way of experimental farming in the dry belt,
and that conditions that obtain
at Agassiz, where an experimental farm has been established,
cannot possibly be made to apply
through this district.
Vancouver Adopts Novel Method of
Financing Civic Works.
Vancouver City Council has
given notice of a bylaw for the
purpose of disposing of $100,000
worth of bonds at 90 cents on the
dollar "over the counter." The
bonds will be of $100 denom-
ation each, and bear interest at
the rate of 4 per cent. The object is, incidentally, of course, to
get the money, but is also designed to give small investors a
chance to buy. But the city has
not gone far enough is the opinion
of coast papers. In order to ensure success, it should, if possible, have made the denomination of these bonds very much
smaller, say $10 each, so that
anyone who has saved money
could take them up. The experiment of selling bonds locally
"over the counter" will be watched with a good deal of interest.

Observations Being Taken
for Dominion Commission
Arthur V. White in Charge of Several
Field Parties.
Lillooet Scores Decisive Victory Over
Lytton—Score 13-3.
The season's work in British
Columbia of the Dominion Commission on Conservation has just
been commenced. Mr. Arthur
V. White, chief engineer, Toronto, who directs the various
field parties engaged in investigating the provincial waterpower
resources, is in Vancouver.
He announced that two engineering parties were despatched
last week from Victoria to take
measurements of the flow of the
principal streams into the inlets
along the mainland coast between
Powell river and Prince Rupert.
They are making the trip in a
chartered launch which has been
equipped for a three months'
cruise. The other parties are at
Hazleton, outfitting for similar
work along the Skeena and Babine and Bulkeley rivers and tributary waters. An investigation
of water power resources on Vancouver Island is also being carried
on in co-operation with the water
branch of the provincial department of lands. Hon. W. R. Ross
the minister of that department,
having contributed financial assistance.
These measurements were first
started by the commission about
three years ago. In the preparation of the report dealing with
the water power resources of
British Columbia a considerable
amount of collateral information
has to be secured. This not only
will comprise an inventory of
these waterpowers, but a recapitulation of the laws and regulations relating to rights and privileges already granted by the
province for mining, irrigation
and other purposes. The work
is being done by Mr. White, who
is regarded as an authority on
hydroelectric subjects.
Respecting the legislative enactments of British Columbia relating to water powers, Mr.
White stated that no other province of the Dominion has so
complex water problems to cope
with as this province; while it is
true, he added, that no other
province has made such rapid advances in regard to power development.
"It is providing legislation
beneficially to administer its
water power resources. It must
be remembered that the use of
waters under regulation in British Columbia antedates that of
any other province. The early
records granted for mining and
irrigation purposes can not be
superseded or adjusted without
the careful consideration of the
water branch of the department
of lands. When it is remembered
that there are 5000 water records
in existence granted under various terms and conditions, some
appreciation can be had of the
complex water problems that the
minister of lands has to deal
with. These conditions demand
consideration on the part of the
public as the problems can not be
solved at a moment's notice.
As a result of a raid on Lytton made Sunday by the Lillooet
baseball boys, a fine bunch of
scalps was brought back to town.
Thirteen to three was the score,
the figures not fully telling the
story of the game. From start
to finish the visitors had it all
over the home team, their hitting
being the feature of the game.
Sinclair, the Lytton pitcher, was
slammed all over the field; only
by good fielding on the part of
his supporters was the score
kept down. For Lillooet, Shea
pitched a great game, having the
Lytton boys in difficulty all
In the field, Miller did good
work, catching five flys in good
style. At centre Powers made a
double play, catching a fly and
bagging a man. For the home
team Hinton fielded well at right,
taking some nice flys.
Right from the opening of the
game the Lillooet boys started
out on their victorious course.
Three runs were secured in the
first, to which five more were
added in the third. This number
was increased by another trio in
the fifth, after which the boys,
with victory well in hand, slowed
down, bringing up the total to 13
by a couple in the eighth. Lytton scored three singles in the
third, fifth and seventh.
Sustains Broken Arm.
Forestry Inspector W. C. Gladwin returned to Lillooet on Monday, from an inspection trip to
Alexis creek and 150-mile. Mr.
Gladwin reports everything in
good shape and the general aspect
of the country prosperous. Considerable rain has fallen from
Ashcroft north to Fort George,
and has resulted in fine hay crops
which are now being harvested.
On Wednesday of last week
forest ranger "Col." Manson sustained a broken arm from a kick
by his horse. While riding from
the Gang ranch to Beachers, the
forward cinch broke, causing the
horse to become excited and
restive. While attempting to
repair the damage the "Colonel"
received a kick which broke the
large bone of the arm. He rode
on to the 150-Mile, a journey of
one and a half days, where the
bone was set.
Goes Back to Jail.
Lizzie Abel (L9), an Indian
woman from Lillooet, who had
just been discharged from Kamloops jail, again appeared on a
charge of drunkenness, in the
Kamloops police court last week,
and was sentenced to one month's
imprisonment. For having supplied her with liquor, H. Brown
was fined $100 or six months' imprisonment.
