the local tradesmen this week.
Mrs. R. Smith who has been
visiting Mrs. W. Manson for the
past few weeks, has returned
to the coast.
J. Hunt who has been on a
business trip to the coast returned last evening and left this
morning for Gunn creek where
he has mining interests.
Game is reported to be very
plentiful this season. Six goats
were seen on Friday morning at
the back of J. Dunlop's store on
Cayoosh creek.
Dr. S. H. Haynes of Victoria,
arrived last evening from the
Cadwallader district where he
has been for the past two weeks,
looking over the likely investments.
Messrs T. Brett, H. P. Keary
and Chas Keary arrived home
last evening from the Bridge
river section, where they have
been on a fishing and prospecting trip.
Dr. Irving of Kamloops and W.
S. Mitchell of Notch hill made a
flying visit to Lillooet this week,
by auto. It is reported they completed the deals for the Foster
and Dickey estates.
W. H. Slipper who has been
spending the past few weeks
here, fishing and recuperating
his health, returned home this
week after having spent a very
beneficial time. He went by
w»y of Lytton in the Auto
J. Rowbottom registered at the
Gunn creek hotel last Sunday.
Mr. and Mrs. A.  F. Noel  left
their ranch at the Big Horn, and
are on a prospecting trip up the
I    South fork of Cadwallader.
Dan Hamilton and Geo Gibson
are still hard at work striping
j the bedrock on Dan's claim, the
Boulder at South fork. They report very favorable indications
and will undoubtedly make a good
clean up this fall.
Messrs Ratcliff and Carl have
located quartz claims on the
South fork and are now busy
running open cuts on their property which lies to the north of
the Lome mining company's
Slu'cing is still going on at the
Marconi Hydraulic claims at
Sucker creek, and Ferguson and
Walker must be credited with
great energy for completing the
mile and a half ditch which is
now in full working order.
P. H. O'Connor came in from
Anderson lake and Blackwater
and is at present making his
head - quarters at Gunn creek
! weere he will prospect this season. He likes the appearance of
country and intends doing some
Wm. Leach and Bert Williams
have completed their contract of
50 ft on the Pioneer mine, and
paid a flying visit to town. Bert
will be occupied at his ranch for
some time, and Bill has secured
another contract from the owners
of the Pioneer.
F. W. Smith has left the camp
at the Lome mine in company
with Sugar Alexander, to operate the big ledge that he has had
i for the past few years, at the
head of Cadwallader and McGillvary creek. In all probability
Smith will shortly start perations
on a larger scale.
The ladies of Cadwallader Ck.
intend giving a dance shortly in
the Coronation mine dining room
invitations have been received by
all the boys in the locality, it will
undoubtedly be the event of the
season, also like everything else
the ladies undertake, a great
i     success.
'* Gaspard packed in two prospectors as far as the Cadwallader mines. Wm. Kedd and C. E.
Powel expect to put in the whole
summer in that vicinity prospecting.
Mrs. D. Hurley and her daughter Minnie are thoroughly enjoying their visit to the Lome mine
and have already located a good
Huckleberry patch, so that pie
will undoubtedly be one of the
delicacies at the forthcoming
Grant White and Geo. Bell are
rushing through the haying at
Tyaughton ranch in order to get
up to their claims on the upper
Tyax. They expect to do considerable development work this
season which will show up the
property to a better advantage.
W. Jones of Fairhaven ranch
is busy with his hay crop, and is
supplying the two road camps,
Nos 1 and 2 respectively.. The
rock work and grading is progressing favorably and due credit must be given to all concerned.
It is estimated that the completion of these sections will take
take place in about five weeks.
. Joe Shuster, Thos. Alford. and
John Lucas have located claims
in close proximity to Gunn creek
lake and at present are showing
some good specimens. The vein
has been stripped in one place
for over six feet and no walls in
sight yet, so in all probability the
boys have struck a good thing.
Joe says it pans good and they
are prepared to do extensive
work shortly.
J. L. Owen of the Pemberton
Meadows is a visitor for the first
time to Lillooet and is highly
pleased with the appearance of
the town and local conditions. In
company with the mail carrier
he made the trip over the Lakes
in record time. Mr. Owen has
one of the banner ranches in the
meadows and is full of praise for
that section. In addition he is
also very much interested in
prospecting and has great hopes
of the future of that country as
a mining centre. In all probability we shall hear more of this
in the near future.
No high water and no mos-
quetoesjs the general report from
the Meadows this season.
Pat Dermody and family are in
good health and quite busy at
present. There are no grizzly-
bears around Pat's house yet, as
it is a little early.
Will Haylmore is still busy
fighting fire in the Meadows with
the co-operation of some of the
natives as assistants. Makes one
think of ice cream soda.
William Elliott and D. Cough-
Ian are busy at present erecting
houses on their respective ranches and are expected to make a
visit to town for supplies, in the
near future.
Jack and Ed. Ronayne are busy
with their hay crop which is exceptionally good this year and
there will be no fear of a shortage of provender for the horses
next winter.
Mr. Punch, road superintendent, has a gang of men at present working on the road between
Ronayne's and McLeod's, and is
doing good work which will be
appreciated by the settlers in the
Thos Graham, foreman of the
Birkenhead Hatchery, and his
bunch of men are busy at present
building a weir across the creek
to secure the salmon. It is expected that there will be a good
run this year and preparations
are being made for their arrival.
Mr. J. McKenzie has just arrived from a visit to the coast by
way of the Squamish and undoubtedly made record time on
the trip. He reports that estimation of the Pemberton Meadow land values are as good as
ever and everyone in the city is
very much interested in the future of the valley.

A. E. LUDWIG, Manmjkr
Extracts from the report
of W. Fleet Robertson, Provincial Mineralogist, for 1910
The Spokane group, owned
by Dr. Christie, of Lillooet,
and others, is situated on
the headwaters of Holbrook
gulch; the mine cabin is at
an altitude of 6,520 feet and
the upper tunnel at 7,050 ft.
This upper tunnel has been
driven in 20 feet, disclosing
a quartz vein about 30 inches
wide, cutting through diabase country-rock with a
N. 70' W. and a nearly vertical dip.
The quartz is, in parts,
quite heavily mineralized
with white and yellow iron-
pyrites and some copper-
pyrites carrying values in
gold and silver. A sample
taken of one of the well-
mineralized portion of the
vein gave, upon assay; Gold
$7.20; silver 0.7 oz. to the
ton; and copper 2.3 per cent.
A lower crosscut tunnel
has been started to cut the
vein at depth, and had been
driven in about 160 feet, but
required to be driven farther
before the vein might be expected.
A system of later basic
dykes was noted as following up the course of the
gulch, forming a small subordinate ridge, on which,
near the mine cabin, a small
shaft had been sunk to a
depth of about 15 feet on a
crushed zone in the diabase,
about three feet wide, which
showed some copper-stain,
and from which a sample was
taken for assay, which did
not, however, disclose any
The mine cabin is at the
entrance of the upper limit
of timber-growth and the
mine is above timber-line, so
that all mine timber has to
be hauled nearly a mile.
The proper entry into this
section is by following Big
Big creek, and this would be
the route used should more
extensive mining operations
be undertaken.
The headwaters of Holbrook gulch are only separated from the valley of Bridg
river by a range of precipi
tous mountains, the distance
being not more than four or
five miles, but this route is
so steep it can only be followed by experienced prospectors unencumbered by
horses or baggage.
From Holbrook gulch a
route was taken across a
ridge to the westward and
down over a snowslide to the
great basin on the summit of
the Tyaughton range of
mountains. On the west
side of this basin the main
Tyaughton trail was found;
this is a trail much used by
the Chilcotin Indians when
travelling to Bridge river
during the hunting season,
and follows Alexander creek
down to its junction with
Bridge river, some eight or
ten miles above the canyon
on that river.
The whole summit of Tyaughton mountain and its
slopes—in fact, all the upper
Bridge river district — was
found to be covered on the
surface with a deposit of
powdered pumice-stone, som
etimes in pieces an inch or
two in diameter, evidently
thrown out in recent times
by some volcano.
The Tyaughton trail was
found to be almost obliterated by fallen trees, so much
so that, although the start
from Holbrook gulch was
made at 8 a.m., it was 5.15
p.m., before the first open
flat on Alexander creek was
reached, a small opening and
meadow at an altitude of
3,500 feet, taken up some
years ago by Oliver Brett,
but later abandoned owing
to the continued summer
frosts due to the elevation.
On September 2, the trail
was followed down Alexander creek, and at about half
a mile from its mouth the
Babb hydraulic plant was
The Babb hydraulic plant
is situated on Alexander ck.
about half a mile from its
mouth, and is held by a syndicate or unincorporated company. The property was operated in a small way in 1909
but not during the year 1910,
being in charge of a watchman only. The gravel-bank
that had been worked is on
the left side of the creek and
is quite extensive; the bedrock is slate, somewhat irregular as to dip, rising
slightly into the hill.
The fall of the creek for
2,000 below the mine is so
flat that the tailings have to
be carried in a block-lined
sluceway, but at the end of
the flume a good dump is
found at a fall in the creek.
The irregularity of the bedrock has caused the excavations to assume very irregular form, and conducive to
economical working.
The plant consists of a good
water-supply under a head
of 340 feet, taken from Alexander creek about two
miles faHher up, brought
down the right-hand side of
the creek by flume. The
pen-stock is 16 inches in diameter, of iron. The water
was used through two 7-inch
giants assisted by a by-wash
from another small creek.
The company has erected
suitable mine buildings and
a small sawmill, sufficient
for its needs, driven by
water. Although not at
present working, it is understood that, although the plant
is, as yet, only a prospecting
one and has not been commercially successful, it has
given sufficient encouragement to induce the company
to continue operations in
An interesting deposit of
carbonaceuiis shale with coal
was visited on September 2;
this is located just above
Jones' ranch, on the steep
hillsideto the north of Bridge
river valley, and about two
miles down-stream from the
mouth of Alexander creek.
The river valley here has an
elevation above sea-level of
about 2,300 feet, and the so-
called coal-cropping is at an
altitudeof 4,175 feet; ahorse
trail extends up the mountain to an elevation of 4,000
The upper portion of this
mountain is capped with
more or less horizontal beds
of volcanic deposition, consisting of scorriae, breccias,
overlying a whitish volcanic
crystalline flow, and overlain
by beds of volcanic mud and
gravel in which are beds of
sandstone of irregular thickness.
Interbedded with the intermediate series mentioned
are one or two beds of a
black carbonaceous shalefrom
1 to 2 feet in thickness, in
which occur lenses of coal,
these sometimes occupying
the entire bed, but always
retaining the lens shape.
This coal, while not developed in quantity, gave the
following remarkably good
analysis on a small sample
of clean coal; Moisture, 8.1
per cent.; ash, 5.6 per cent.;
volatile matter, 33.6 per ct.;
fixed carbon, 52.7 per cent.;
total 100 per cent.

It is believed in Ottawa that
the general elections will be held
during the last week of September. Parlinment will sit for
three or four weeks, disolving
about the middle of August. The
date of voting will then be fixed
for the interval between the end
harvest and the arrival of |the
Duke of Connaught as governor
general. His Royal Highness
will reach Montreal on October
12 and the government wants to

Men, who, on the trade question, talk disloyally in Canada
are the breeders and fomenters
of disloyalty,
Those Canadians who inspire
editors, even of the less influential newspapers in England, to
write stuff questioning the loyalty of Canadians because they are
following in the footsteps of the
Motherland, are notorious mischief makers, traitorous alike to
Canada and the Empire. In
earlier days the state dealt severe
ly with such characters. In our
times we have to rely upon good
sense of the public to rate such
mischief-breeders at their true
Old countrymen resident in
Canada are in a position to distinguished between the ' 'fixed,''
sensation -mongering sheets of
London and newspapers of reliability, but unfortunately many
Canadians are led into believing
that the fulminations of some of
these London journals are really
British opinion of Canada and
(:u nidians. This is where the
mischief is being done. The antagonism of the Canadian people
is aroused. For the sake of
gaining some cheap party advantage there are men who would
stir up discord between Britain
and Canada. This is discreditable and disei;aceful.
A lot of newspapers and some
public men went off at half-cock
the other day on the proposition
before the Imperial Conference
that the Dominions should be relieved from the operation of the
most-favored-nation clause of
the old treaties. It was disloyal,
they said. After consideration
the Conference unanimously a-
dopted the proposal, which was
nothing but fair.
Canadians will act wisely if
they listen to the true voice of
the British people, as they hear
it from such men as Premier
Asquith, Sir Edward Grey, the
Duke of Connaught and the King
The lack of discrimination in
sending English press comment
to Canada, without qualification
as to its source and authority, is
a matter that Canadian newspapers might look into at an
early date. - Winnipeg Tribume.

The Colonial Intelligence League has established a representative in Vancouver. Miss D. M.
Davis of 1020 Nicola Street, who
invites applications for women-
workers of all sorts.
This movement aims at the
immediate benefit of the educated women in England for whom
the league hopes to find suitable
careers in the Dominion. There
are waiting in England now over
a hundred women and girls of
the very best type, who share
the eagerness of their brothers
to find scope for energies and a-
bilities in Canada and other overseas Dominions. These are of
two main classes — Those who
have a little money of their own
and those who ai-e entirely dependent on their earnings. In
either case, each one of them is
not only thoroughly qualified in
her own line, but is also able and
willing, if necessary, to undertake successfully domestic work
of any kind.
Miss Davis will be glad for any
help in this work and for any information as to reliable openings.
