In thn spring of 1868 it became
known in California that gold had
been discovered on the banks of
Fraser River. The Fraaer u the
great river of Britiih Columbia.
From the Rooky Mountain! to the
Straits of Georgia it flows 1,000
miles, and ig not leu remarkable
for the grandeur of its icew-iy, the
volume of ita waters, and the magnificent swiftness of ita currept,
than for the vast treasures ol gold
found along ita banks. Previous t.)
1868. it wu known that gold existed
in the colony, for in 1866 Mr. Douglas (afterward* 8ir James Douglas),
the governor, reported to the bome
authorities that gold had been washed
out of the banks of Ihe Upper Columbia and the Fraser riven. In
the autumn of 1867 some persona
found their way to the Upper Fraser, where they mined with great
success. On the approach of winter they withdrew to San Franoisoo,
where they spread glowing report!
bf the wonderful riohneu of the
new Eldorado. The excitement
caused by thete reports among the
miners of California waa unbounded,
and all olawei of the community
were smitten with the gold fever.
A correspondent of the London
Times, writing fiom San Francisoo
tt that time, layi: "None are too
poor, and none are too rich to go:
none are too young, and none are
old to go: even the decrepit go.
Many go with money, and many
without: aome to invest in real ettate, aome to aee what may turn up,
some out of curiosity, tome to steal,
and unquestionably tome to die."
It is doubtful if erer in the history
of migration! of men there bu been
a rush to sudden and so vut. It ii
estimated that by the middle of
July some 20,000 had left California for Britith Columbia. Only a
few of theae met with sufloei»: the
greater part, discouraged ty failto*,
scarcity of food, ind by the almoat
insurmountable difficulty of penetrating the de nte foreits, made haste
to abandon the oountry. On their
return to California theae ditap
pointed onei gave publio expression
to their disappointment in uoh
terms u to oreate a complete reaction. They denounced the oountry
ut an imposition, comparing it to
the South Sea bubble, the Mississippi scheme, and other well known
frauds. Those who remained on
the Fraier, however, carried off the
reward of their patience and fortitude. The waten of the river having fallen, the minen were able to
work on the benches, and the average luccesa wu excellent. Britiih
Oolumbia is pre-eminently a gold
country. To ita gold minu it owe!
iti existence ai a colony. Itwu
that mighty magnet whioh fint at-
attraoted attention to the oountry.
The fine gold found on the lower
Fraier gave the minen a clue to the
coarse gold of the upper oountry,
to thue enterprising men went up
the river and itt tributaries, following the drift of yellow metal, in
learch of the aouroe of supply.
Coane gold wu found in 1869, on
the Quesnelle River, and late in
1860 followed the ditoovery of Cariboo, whioh ii undoubtedly the richest part of Britiih Oolumbia yet
explored. In. that region gold it
found both in the beds of the orcein
tnd in their banks. The bed-rock
from whioh it it' taken it very irregular, sometime! appearing close to
the surface, ind tometimet found it
i depth of from 12 to 60 feet. It
it i slate formation, generally of
a bluiih color, but tometimet a yei*
Jowiib white; for the primary or
igneous rocks which form the marked
geological feature of the whole ooun-
try are in Cariboo of i schistose or
alaty character. The gold ii found
in the bluiih clay on tnd in the
alaty bottom, tometimet as much aa
a foot deep. Streaki of yellowish
day tre alio found, which tn aome-
timei very rich. The gold teems to
be held in the ridget of the ilute.
The gold ii frequently found mixed
with quarts. It il interesting to
note the hiitory tnd probable causes
of thii combinttion. In order lo
understand it we muit go btck to
tho fountain head, the rocki from
whioh thit gold with iti quart! hu
come. Here it tn igneout, mett
morphio elite rook, one of thou
gitnti primeval who bear the world
on their ahouldm. It ii In ■ state
of intense heat; il coob, and in
cooling it cracks; through the craokt
or fissures wtter pane, containing
lilioa; the ailiot ii deposited in the

San IVkSo-ffiOO, April 25.—Officials ol th» Southern PtoMlc state that
they an (iletMd with ttie wtiou of
the inter-state commission, but they
mold not as yet say what effect;, that
action would have upon their freight
ratea. In sneaking on the subject one
of the officials says: "Inthia ptrtioular
seotlon, the long and short atnl clause
of the inter-state act, was the causo of
a heavy advance In overland through
freights, and its suspension will of
ooune redound to lht benefit of shippers. Prior to' April lit we were
obliged to make an entire new freight
schedule to comply with the law, but
whether we will carry freight at the
old rate is something that will not be
determined for a lew daya at lent.
Without speaking authoritatively on
behalf of the company, I am inclined
to believe old rates will be adopted at
ono.."

new part of tbe creek, below the
canyon, hitherto unexplored, was
found to be as rich as the famous
region higher hp, nnd three claims
irfthis hew ground panned out $300,-
000 betweeii October and January,
1868, in proof of which ISO pounds
of gold were brought to Lillooet on
the 21st February. Inter in the
spring of 1863 Dillon's claim gave
the astonishing yield of 102 lbs. in
one day. ,: Accepting the theory that
gold dust has its source in quartz
ledges, the miners who discovered
line gold on the lower part of Fraser
River eagerly pressed up towards
the tource of supply.. 6n reaching
Cariboo they found it cparte enough,
tame piece! of i pure gold there
weighing ai much «s 5 ounces, and
tome nnggett- mixed with quart!
gMriy sis' high ii' 16' ounces. Not
only was it ooarse, but its discovery
in such (immense quantities led to
the! conclusion that the quartz, the
tource of supply, was not far off.
It wu not long before quartz ledgei
were discovered, and in some of
them 'free gold wis plainly visible
to the naked eye.,' But to Work theso
ledgipinssjuired heavy machinery and
large expenditure. Thc cost of laying machinery down in thtt distant
region, without iny proper means of
transport, prevonted iny one from
venturing upon an industry in which
ft wii. eatiy to sink hundreds of thous-
andsof dollars without absolutely certain prospect! of large returni. The
discovered quartz ledgei of early
dayi were, therefore, either abandoned or allowed to he undisturbed,
•mm men -went alxmt everywhere
ih search of less expensive arid less
hazardous fields in which to expend
their enterprise. During the past
twenty yean, however, the cream at
least hu . keen taken off the placer
minet of Cariboo) .arid ni ore porma
Bent,mines arc essential to the solid
prospeeity of the oountry. Thtt
thtn tre tuch minet in abundanco
no one can now question who has
kept himself moderately posted on
tho event! 'whieh hive been transpiring during intervening years.
Gradually the difficulties which stood
in thi wiy of quartz mining, at first
apparently imurmountuble, aro disappearing. The completion of the
O. P. R. brings Cariboo many miles
nearer civi-tUion, and new and bot
ter methods of treating the auriferous sulphurets tre coming into use,
tnd the process of saving the precious
metal Is becoming better undentood.
Tie: -ltpfoceiiii giving way to the
hii' expensive tnd more effective
•Wk^'W electricity.' There are
now in existence several quartz min*
ih| opmj^niei preparing for active
operations. The totter Mining Co.
tt Clinton, tnd the British Oolumbia
Milling ind Mining Co. will soon lio
it work, and othen will doubtless
follow. The oountty is full of gold'
tadiqwrti from Olinton to Omeneot
lid Irom Kootenay to Stickeen, tnd
•* may -expect thortly to see it
twinning with, minen and humming

The counoil met lut evening in the

chair, and Count. Curtis, Elliot, Reid,
Jaques, Bonson, and Duncan.
OOMM-KICAIlONg,
The following communications wen
read: Fnm Jas, Cunningham, giving
notice that he would appeal againit
the uienment value placed on hia
lots; from the Bank of B. 0., concerning Drake _t Oo.'i legal aoooont; fnm
D. E. Brown, district passenger agent
of tho 0. P. R., that Geo, Oldi, trafflc
manager O.P.R., had written him to
confer with the oounoil in regard to
having through ticket! on the 0. P. R.
reid via Vanoouver or New Westminster instead of via Vanoouver, and
stating that he would come to West*
miniter and confer with the oounoil or
mayor on the matter.
The Mayor—I hive not aeen Mr.
Brown yet.
From Peter Orford, uking that
Park Lane be swamped. The board
of works was empowered to spend
some money in carrying out Ihe wish
ot Mr. Orford. From H.V. Edmonds,
uking permission to lay timber on
Oolumbia and Donglu its. for building purpose!.   Leave granted.
THE LOAN BY-LAW,
W.N. Bole nporled verbally that
aa he intended putting up a residence
on his lots on corner Mary and Agnes
its., he would like to have Cunningham at, graded. Mr. Bole uid that
he knew it wu the will of the oounoil
to assist those who wen improving
their lots.
The Mayor—Yes, Mr. Bole, tht
counoil are willing enough, but just
now we are hampered in this way by
the want of cash. We propose, however, to borrow the sum of, uy, ISO,-
000 to expend on itreet improvement!
and in the enetion of a citv hall, and
in payment of exiating liabilities, and
you, Mr. Bole, will be asked lo give
your sanction to such a scheme.
Mr. Bole—Such a by-law, I think,
would pass, provided your scheme for
expending it was reasonable. A good
idea would be to make a draft of suoh
a by-law and confer with aome of tbe
leading ratopayera on it Many already hare expressed themselves in
sympathy with the scheme, provided
its expenditure waa made consistent.
The mayor and oouncil expressed
themselves in accordance with Mr.
Bole's views.
BILLS   AND ACCOUNTS
The following iccounto wen rud:
From Mainland Guardian, for advertising, 123.40, referred to finance
committee.
REPORTS.
The mayor reported that he did not
think there would be any difficulty in
obtaining the service! of the chain
gang, providing the council hind *
guard for them during their work.
The counoil then wept into committee
on the Vale, pipes by-law. The penalty of infraction of the by-law wu
fixed. The committee then rose and
reported progren. The by-law wu
then read a third time and paned.
The finance oommittee wu instructed to have Hyaok Hall insured
for 11,000.
H, V. Edmonds' olaim for rebate of
tixei wu ordered settled.
Ooun. Curtit reported that the
transtei-iif Byack Hall from the fire
company had been obtained, and that
the hall wu now the property of the
council. The board of works were ordered to have the hall prepared for
the council to hold their muting! in
it hereafter..
Coun. Reid asked if the mayor had
yet obtained a grant of the lot on
which Hyack Hall ii. The mayor reported that he had not. Mr. Bole,
who wu present, uid that he had
hid some correspondence with the
government on this subject, ind that
the government had no objection lo
giving a grant of thia lol to the counoil providing the fin oompany wen
willing, but now, u Ihe council hu
purchased tho right of the oompany in
the hall, all difficulty it removed.
The mayor nid thii wu a piece of information new to him. He uid steps
wuuld be taken to gat the deed at
once.
* TAXIS.
Coun, Curtii thought that the counoil ahould have a collector to leeure
their taxei, or to collect unpaid trade
licenses. The clerk informed the
counoil that very few of theu licenses
wen unpaid, and it wu hardly worth
the trouble to appoint a collector.
Coun. Curtis uked for information
from the council on the revenue bylaw. He uid commercial travellers
were taxed. Thii tax ahould be removed.
The counoil were of the ume opinion.
The mayor thought It would bt
unwise to put a heavy lax on brewers,
u they wen already taxed huvily by
Ihe govornment
Ooun. Jaques favored the railing of
the tax on Chinese laundries. Insurance agents should alto be-made to
pay their taxu.
| {Coun. Curtis reported that wreral
accounts of delinquent taxpayen had
been placed in court, and that they
had been immediately paid. He,
therefore, wu in favor of instructing
the clerk to proceed with the remainder of these tardy ntepayen and
plsce their aooounta in court.
Tho eounoil agreed.
The dog-tax by-law wai nad a fint
and second time,
• JUBIUI.
The proponl to hold a public muting to discuu preparation! for the jubilee wu brought up. The mayor wu
authorised to make arrangements for
holding the meeting on Tueaday evening next il the Drill Shed eould bt
obtained.
IfAOISTRATl. AND TH1IK ______
Tht oounoil molvid ilielf into committee to aniwer the eommnnioatlon
of the attorney general uking why
Constable Pesrse had refused to nrvt
a wirrant iuued by Oapt, Pittendrigh,
J. P. Two affidavits wen produotd:
of Ah Fai and of Hr. Bcratchl.y. Tht
affidavit of Ah Fat wu nad, which
declared he wu arruttd on a warrant
issued by Oapt Pittendrigh, and
placed In jail; that shortly afterward!
he wu released, on hii .paying 112;
that ht had not been brought to court.
The affidavit of Mr. Seratehley wu
then nad. It atated tbat Mr. Scratch-
ley had been taken oat of hii bed at
two o'clook in the morning and
brought to jail on a warrant iuued by
Oapt. Pittendrigh; that he had bun
released on payment of $32, $6 of
whieh wai for Oapt, Fittendrigh'a feu;
that he bad never been brought into
court, and that in vain he had pro*
teitedat hii arrest that he wu innocent
of the charge on wbioh he wu arrest*
The mayor—I think Oapt. Pittendrigh wu not warranted in arresting
Mr. Seratehley at that hour in the
morning. A summons would have
found Mr. Soratchley at any time.
Ooun. Elliot—lt looks like a caw of
blaokmailing.
The mayor—Then Capt. Pittendrigh has charged 85 feei. I unnot
ne what right he bad to do thii. The
caw did not oome to trial. I think
Hr. Pittendrigh hu been miking
over-charges, and we ahall inform the
attorney general. I have no wish to
prevent Capt. Pittendrigh exercising
his function!, but I think he is overstepping thue functions.
Ooun, Duncan—I think so too.
The olerk then read a draft of a letter to the attorney general which stated that the refusal of the constable to
execute the warrant resulted from a
misunderstanding that the can belonged to the district instead of the
city.   The tw.o affidavit! wen aim ap*
Snded. The teller pointed out that
ipt Pittendrigh inues warrants on
very trivial causes, snd over-ohargei
hia feu.
The mayor—I cannot tee the uu of
having a police magiitrate if Captain
Pittendrigh is continually taking his
plan. Just oall tha attention of the
attorney general to thue practices,
which we wiih itopped.
The committee then run and the
oounoil adjourned.
Mrs. Barnhart, cor. Pratt and Broadway, hu bnn a tuferer for twelve years
through rheumatism and hu tried every
remedy lhe could hear of, but received
no benefit until ahe tried Dr. Thomu'
