ANNIVERSARY OF THE ADV
With this issue the Advance begins
its second year. For fifty-two Saturdays this paper has come forth regularly and spread the news of this commun-
nity broadcast over the country, and
during this brief existence we are glad
to state we have had very good support
both from subscribers and advertisers
and in return we have put forth our
be3t efforts to give value for it all.
There have been times when some
people have not agreed with all
things that we have published, but
when you think of the different minds
and opinons that a newspaper must
cater to, it is not to be wondered at,
and those who imagine that the path
of a country editor is strewn with roses
have another think coming.  But on the
: whole the bouquets handed this sheet
have been very liberal and we feel we
have pleased the great majority of our
readers and hope we have merited their
support for the coming year.
As has been our policy in the past,
we shall continue to boost any legitimate proposition that will tend to advance I.illooet and the district, and
will never lose the opportunity to let
the outside world know of our numer-
; ous and attractive advantages as a
mining, ranching and fruit growing center or as the prize hunting and fishing
section of the province.
Hunting Parties Arrive
F. H. and D. C. Daniels, two
young gentlemen from Worcester, Mass., arrived this week and
will spend about nine weeks in
the district fishing and hunting.
The train, consisting of about
twenty pack horses, left yesterday afternoon for North fork,
where the first camp will be
made for several days. After
this they will spend their time
in various sections of the district
under the capable guidance of
Jack James.
A fishing party composed of
S. A. Wright, Thos. Pattison and
J. Kyle of Vancouver came in
last Monday and left the next
day on their trip which will be
of about ten days duration and
will take them up Seton and Anderson lakes, through the Pemberton country and out by way
of Harrison lake. This route
includes some of the best fishing
streams in the province and the
gentlemen should not lack for
sport. One of the gentlemen is
well known as an artist and will
sketch many points of interest
on the trip.
Leon Bondaiz and J. Rennie of
Vancouver, returned on Wednesday from their trip up the
lakes, and left Thursday for the
coast. They have been looking
round the vicinity of the Big
Home ranch, with a view to investing.
Rev. Bromwich will preach at
Foster's Bar next Sunday morning at 11 a.m. and at the Methodist church in town at 8 o'clock in
the evening. During the warm
weather services will be held one
half hour later.

A. E. LUDWIG, Manager
LILLOOET MINING DIVISION
The following are a few
extracts from the report of
Wm. Fleet Robertson, Provincial Mineralogist, published in the Annual report of
mining in British Columbia
for 1910.
Lillooet is one of the oldest towns in the interior of
British Columbia, and was,
in the earliest days of the
Cariboo gold rush, the starting-point of the great wagon
road into the goldfields, and,
although today, on account
of the railway connection,
the traffic starts from Ashcroft, all the nomenclature
of the main road, such as the
83-mile, the 100-mile, and
the 150-mile house, refers to
the distance from Lillooet
when that town was the
starting-point.
Near Lillooet a number
of quartz ledges have been
proven to carry gold, and in
parts these were found to
be very rich, but, so far, the
the pay-shoots have not been
found large enough for successful company operations.
While the company flotations in the vicinity do not
appear to have been successful, there have been a number of smaller properties in
Bridge river section which
have managed to do development and pay expenses, even
when run practically without
initial capital and with the
most primitive appliances ;
these were opened up by
working partnerships, and
the plants consisted of homemade arrastras.
These properties have for
some years past been producing gold, and with a view
of forming some estimate of
the probable future of the
camp, the writer visited the
camp in September.
Bridge river flows into the
Fraser river about five miles
above the town of Lillooet.
and a good trail, which
might be made into a wagon
road, runs from Lillooet up
the valley of Bridge river for
about twenty-five miles, or
to the mouth of North fork;
the trail follows up this fork
to its headwaters, continuing
northward. (Work on widening this trail has been progressing this summer.—Ed.)
Above the junction of the
North fork, the main Bridge
river is in canyon for some
ten or twelve miles, and the
valley is impassable for foot
passengers, much less for
pack horses so that no practical connection exists between the upper and lower
Bridge river valleys, except
over the summit of Tyaugh-
ton mountain, a rise of nearly 8,000 feet. This lower
valley has been the scene of
a number of hydraulic-placer
enterprises, but none were
found in operation   in 1910.
The gravel deposits in this
valley are very thick and the
stream has cut them deeply,
leaving steep sided gravel-
benches which in places,
carry considerable gold.
Various attempts have
been made to work these,
but the results have never
been satisfactory, partly because of the small amount of
water used, few serious attempts having been made to
bring in an adequate water-
supply.
The one notable exception
to this is the Brown hydraulic mine, situated at the
junction of North fork and
main Bridge river, from
which the water, obtained
from a small tributary creek,
was brought for five miles
down the west bank of the
North fork, on the upper
bench. This property was
extensively opened up and
operated in 1900, but has
since been closed down, as
not sufficient gold was obtained to make it profitable.
The writer followed the.
North fork trail for three or
four miles, when, at Birch's
ranch, a trail leading up to
the mountains to the west
was taken, and after crossing over a couple of subordinate summits over 7,000 in
height, Holbrook gulch, a
branch of Big creek, a creek
flowing to the north and entering the North fork ten
miles above its mouth, was
reached on the evening of
the 31st of August.

TELEGRAPH LINE
A crew of men are at
work installing the telegraph
line, which when completed
in the fall will give Stewart
connection with the outside
world, says the Portland
Canal Miner of June 10. The
work is being pushed on both
sides of the range dividing
the Portland Canal and Observatory Inlet.
ALASKA GOLD SHIPMENT
The first of this season's
gold shipments from Alaska
was received by a local bank
today, says a Seattle despatch of the 19th inst.
The consignment was small
amounting to $66,000, but
several more valuable ones
are on the way, and local
bankers expect the gold receipts from Alaska this year
to amount to $15,000,000.
The gold received came from
Fairbanks and has been in
transit since May 18.
