THE LILLOOET PROSPECTOR
Tol. 1 No. 38
FRIDAY, AUGUST   2, 1912
$2.00 Per Year
WATER FROM
TEXAS CREEK
Messrs. F. G. Mappin and
B. Weller of Vancouver,
came in from Lytton on
Tuesday, leaving that night
for Texas Creek to complete
negotiations in the matter
of the Parsonville Irrigation
Project.
During the gold rush to
the Cariboo Parsonville was
a good sized settlement, on
the flats opposite Lillooet,
but being mostly '59ers from
California no attention
was given to agriculture,
and as the Cariboo excitement grew the early residents gradually moved farther north, while many
moved across to Lillooet
where water was more
abundant.
This tract is particularly
valuable for fruits and vegetables and comprises about
5,000 acres. The approximate cost of putting water
on the land is estimated in
the neighborhood of $250,-
000, and they will have to
bring the water from Texas
creek—a distance of nearly
15 miles.
\
LILLOOET RESIDENTS OFF
FOR THE COAST
Mr. and Mrs.S. A. Macfar-
lane and children left by auto
Wednesday to spend a six
weeks vacation visiting the
coast cities. This is practically the first vacation that
Mr. Macfarlane, has enjoyed
in the past sixteen years.
Mr. White is in charge of
the office during the absence
of Mr. Macfarlane.
HELLO, IS THIS SETON
LAKE, CENTRAL!
A test 'phone was installed
at Seton Lake Monday and
you have only to ring them
up. They report th« work
going fine.
PERTINENT FACTS IN
REGARD  TO  LILLOOET
The district of Lillooet
came into being with the
early adventurers of the rival fur companies. It was
afterwards the hub and gold
center of the hardy miner
until the discovery of the
yellow metal in the Cariboo,
when this section supplied
that camp with farm produce. The monuments of
the old placer diggings still
survive, and silently tell
their own story of the days
when Lillooet yielded up her
treasure to the husky.miner,
at a time when mankind was
intoxicated with a vision of
boundless wealth.
This district has no superior anywhere in mineral deposits, which have been
barely scratched and will attract the attention of any intelligent prospector.
The climate here recalls
the sunny lands of France
and southern Italy, and Lillooet is well named "the
beauty spot of British Col-
tmbia.".
Professor Henderson, of
the University of Idaho, after an inspection of the fruit
raised in this district, said
that for flavor and quality
are not excelled in any fruit
belt. Little of the fruit
raised here reaches the outside markets, "Lack of
transportation" that hasbeen
the hackeneyed excuse of
the well meaning, though
apparently dilatory habitant
existing on the outskirts of
civilization, still the question is of vital importance
and by this time next year
the progress and prosperity
of this district will be assur-
red by the laying of the two
bands of steel.
A great many ranches
have changed hands in the
past year or so and the intentions of the new settlers
in   the young orchards now
seen growing in this vicinity
are very evident.
Lillooet has for years been
the depot and principal trade
source of the Bridge River
Mining District, where an
extensive showing in free
milling quartz has recently
been made. A great deal
of development work has
been done in the past six
months, especially on Taylor
and Eldorado Creeks, where
Jos. Shuster, Herb Taylor,
Grant White and Gtorge
Bell are pushing their development work as fast as possible.
The Lome mine has for
years been a prolific producer
of gold, the ore being formerly treated by two arrastras, l?ut lately ..given place
to the milling process.
The Provincial Government is widening the wagon
road from the Mission on
Seton Lake to the Pioneer
Mine, a distance of about
sixty miles. This work will
be completed early this fall.
Another government project now under construction
is the telephone line from
Lillooet to the Pioneer mine.
Messrs. Chas'. Morgan and
Roy Burkholder are in
charge of this work and are
already well up Seton Lake
with their line crew. They
are positive of bringing the
line to completion within the
next three months.
NOXIOUS WEED ACT
TO  BE ENFORCED
The public is being warned through the press that
the noxious weed act is to
be enforced. Owners of vacant lots and places where
noxious weeds abound, are
shortly to receive notice to
clean up same. Burdock is
the worst offender.
MINING NEWS FROM
TAYLOR CREEK
Joe Shuster, accompanied
by Mr. W. Lewis, paid Lillooet a flying visit the first
of the week, coming in from
his holdings in the Bridge
River District. Mr. Lewis
is one of the best known
mining men in the country
and says he enjoyed a very
very pleasant trip. He further stated that his inspec-
of the "Wide West" prospect on Taylor creek, owned
by Mr. Shuster, made an excellent showing. After
stripping the capping on this
claim for a distance of 18
feet thev encountered solid
arsenital iron—samples of
which Mr. Lewis has taken
to Vancouver for assay.
The last assay from the
Provincial assayer showed
$97 gold and 20c silver from
-his group.
A trail to these new camps
will soon be under way.
Sixty new locations have recently been made in this
district.
McGILLIVRAY CREEK
SAWMILL
Mellott and Swanson are
making preparations to in-
stal their new sawmill on
McGillivray creek. The machinery is expected here in a
few days. Mr. Page has
the contract for the erection
of the mill. When completed the mill will cit about
20,000 feet per day.
GENERAL   MEETING
A meeting of th« Sport's
committee will be held in
the Victoria hotel on Tuesday night, August 6th, at 8
o'clock p. m., when they
will consider the best means
of disposing of the different
prizes, which are still in the
hands of the committee.

PASCHELQUA  NEWS
W. L. Dickey was a town
visitor the first of the week
and reports everything in
fine shape down the river.
Indications point to a bumper
crop this season. The only
drawback he says is the need
of a teacher for the school.
At present there are no less
than sixteen children of
school age, who are compelled to attend school in Lillooet, a distance of from ten
to fifteen miles. As there
is a substantial school house
already constructed in that
district, there should be no
difficulty in securing a teacher. The Prospector endorses
Mr. Dickey's views in regard
to this matter. It isjan assured fact that one of the
greatest incentives to a country's prosperity is through
our district schools.
Preparations are underway among the leading citizens of Lillooet to have the
hospital grounds cleared and
fenced. The wire fence is
now on the ground and the.
work on the grounds will be
started at once. Mrs. A. F.
Noel is entitled to great
credit for the interest she
has taken in getting the hospital ready for occupancy.
 „	
Strangers visiting Lillooet often remark on the
absence of working men
about town. As a matter
fact the demand for working
men is in excess of the supply and those coming in
find work at one 3. There
are at least two hundred
miners and prospectors employed in the Bridge River
Mining District at this time,
while the road camps and
government projects are
snapping up men as fast as
they arrive.
