Vol. 2 No. 11

WHAT THE
MINES ARE
DOING
The influx of railroad
builders has temporarily-
pressed the local interest in
mining from the public eye,
but those who are closely
affiliated with the development of Lillooet's mineral
resources are not wasting a
moment.
From the groups of prospectors and miners that
gather in the corners, away
from the babel of the grade
builders and talk over the
outlook, it is gathered that
the properties on Cadwallader creek are going ahead
this winter with development work and getting affairs in shape to make next
season the one that will
bring forth fulfillment of
their faith in that section..
The Black Bird was sold
recently by Mr. Arthur
Noel and, it is reported, that
the sale of the Pioneer is
now pending.
Messrs. Ferguson and
Walker arrived last night
from Sucker creek and are
enronte for the coast, where
they will spend the next six
weeks. Mr. Ferguson states
that they have made good
headway with their hydraulic the past season. Two
good leads of low grade ore
were uncovered and both are
confident that before the end
of next season they will have
tapped the lead for which
have been searching. Two
pipe lines were installed on
the property  the   past sea-
GIRL MURDERED
NEAR LYTTON
James Antwine, a young
half breed from the Yale
district, fatally stabbed Mire
Minnie Martin at a dance
atthe Stine Creek ranche] e i
last Tuesday. Jealousy was
said to be the cause cf the
killing.
The young man was a resident of this place at one
time and was known as a
rather violent character,
having been mixed up in
several scrapes while here.
The victim was well and
favorably known around
Lytton and the entire community extend their sympathy to her parents and relatives in their sad bereave
ment.
son and by the   end of March
the plant will be in operation.
Wm. Leach is making
good headway on His contract on the old Pioneer
claim.
F. Kinder is doing some
development work on the
Dyke mineral claim, which
adjoins his pre-emption on
Seton lake. The leuge is of
porphyry and Mr. Kinder
considers that he has a very
promising prospect.
NEW DAILY
STAGE TO LYTTON
Neece and Hinton will run
a four-horse stage from Lillooet to Lytton, daily, leaving here at 7:00 a. m., and
arriving at 6:00 p. m.
The work of remodeling
the interior of the C. A.
Phair store is being pushed
rapidly ahead. The store is
to be completely overhauled
and refitted and when completed will he a neat up-to-
date department store with
a cash carrier system and all
modern appliances to facilitate the handling of their
rapidly increasing business.
'Mi GENT'S FUR-
NMING STORE
The new gent's furnishing
store is now open and Mr. F.
D. Anderson, the proprietor,
says it is his intention to keep
a stock that will be second
to none in this district. A
large amount of goods are
still at Lytton, but are expected in the first of the
week.
Mr and Mrs, Anderson
como well recommended and
will be warmly welcomed by
the citizens here.
Z. Kirby left the first of
the week for coast points.
Pat. McDonald is down
from the Portage, spending
a few days with friends.
Mark Eagleson and son,
Jack, left on Sunday for
Vancouver, where the former underwent an operation.
Word was received here
last night that Mr. Eagleson was rapidly recovering.
The townsite formerly
sold by the Howe Sound and
Northern Development Co.,
have handed all their property to the Merlin Grimm
Co,, Ltd., who will act as
their selling agents wi:h
offices in all the principal
cities of Canada, it is the
intention of this company to
boost Lillooet as much as
possible. Branch offices are
now Le'.ng established in the
United States and  England.
All roads on the subdivisions will be put in good
shape, water will be put on
the property and, as soon as
it is possible to secure material, several business build •
ings and a number of residences will be under construction.
Messrs, Boultbee, Jacks
and Cruickshank have been
appointed exclusive local
agents and report that the
property is selling rapidly,
block 6 of this subdivision
having been sold to ore
man.
Mr. E. A. Brownie, manager for the new company,
paid Lillooet a visit this
week and says there is no
doubt but what Lillooet is a
town with a great future and
he intends to be a frequent
visitor here.

The cold snap has broken.
It has been of a little longer
duration and more severe
than is usually" the case, but
reports from outlying districts show that Lillooet has
been exceedingly fortunate.
The lowest temperature recorded here was 15 below
and this was for a few hours
only. At the Coronation
mine it reached 28 below,
while at Grant White's place
on Bridge River it registered
30 below. The prolonged
cold snap has made the local wood piles look like
snowy hill sides after a Chinook has been busy for an
hour or two.
Word from Mr. F. M.
Bateman. who was in charge
of the Geological survey
made of Lillooet Mining district last summer by the
Dominion government,1 states
that he is now lecturing before a class in economic geology at Yale. His reports
and maps of this section will
be published next spring.

BOTH SIDES
Lillooet, B. C,
Jany. 24, 1913
Editor Prospector:—It may
interest you to know that
I have heard many persons
discussing your stand as regards supporting the Conservative party—all spoke
praising you for your de-
cison.
A paper without a party
is always held in contempt
by both parties. You will
undoubtedly hear much
against, but the big majority
are with you—even if you do
not hear about it.
Wishing you well,
A Resident.
Its funny how opinions
differ. Above is what a
good, whole-souled Conservative has to say about our
new political policy and below is the ''brainstorm" of a
"half-way—on-the-fence"
newspaper, that lacks the
nerve to come out fair and
square and declare themselves--has to say in regard to
our stand politically. Speaking just off-hand, about dimensions of newspapers,
one of our employees ha [
the misfortune to be employed on the Journal when it
boasted four pages, seven
columns per of "boiler plat-"
and legal notices, and when
it did condescend to give
forth a little news stuff it
was hailed from one end cf
the Cariboo road to the other
as a sort of a joke. Now, it
is a fairly good news she t
and, isn't it just barely possible, The Prospector may
grow to "b'gger dimensions"
and may prove a KEAL rival
to our esteemed contemporary. At any rate we thank
the Journal for their little
advice and roast for in the
words of the modern wise
men: "Every knock's a
boost."
"The Lillooet Prospector will
join the rank and file of the Conservative army. We cannot be-
lieve otherwise than that the editor, or the manager, or the proprietor, or the shareholders are
joking. It is disastrous for a
paper, the dimensions of the Lil-
looeet Prospector to attach itself
to any one color in politics. Our
humble advice to the management is to keep their politics up
their sleeve and publish the
truthful, unpadded, unimpover-
• ished, unbiased news in an unprejudiced manner that it may be
the pride of its supporters for
all time to come.—Journal.
Once a fellow made himself
poor by trying to make others
think that he wasn't.

OPTOMISM PAYS
In our village there's a
dealer with a sparkle in his
eye, and he's always getting
closer to the hearts of those
who buy With this cheerful pleasant dealer all the
people keep in touch, from
the banker to the copper, for
he doesn't cost too much.
Not a dismal, doleful, grumble does he utter in his store;
like the busy bees that bumble, he is hustling evermore.
Whether you use prune or
prism, calico and one-horse
shays, You will find that
optomism in the thing that
always pays.-Walt Mason.

has accepted a position with
Mr. Bryson.
McLeod Bros, managers of
the Tiffin ranch, have a force
of men at work getting out
saw logs on Cole Mountain,
The logs will he hauled to
the sawmill at the "21."
The mill will prove a great
convenience to the farmers
of this vicinity.
The demand for "Never-
slips" is keeping Pete Garri-
gan busy these clays.
No sleighing through this
valley yet, although sufficient snow has fallen to justify it, but the high winds
have kept sleighing out of
business.
"Alfie" Smith made his
first trip over the Marble
Canyon lake Friday. He reports the ice to be between
8 and 10 inches thick and
he can make much better
time than heretofore.
Root. Dickey called at the

IN THE DAYS  OF OLD
In the Days of Gold
In the Days of Sucker
Creek
This commences a series of
short stories of the happenings
of the far-famed J. Cullom hostelry, where as fine a bunch of
prospectors met as ever drew
breath and drank whisky. Now,
many have gone to their last
Prospecting Ground. Good fellows all. What they had was
yours if you needed it—and not
for the asking either, but given
only too freely with a good heart.
To those who are gone, we miss
you. To those living but absent,
come back to Lillooet for we
need you as things are "looking
up."
As these are reminisences, we
will just wander along any
old trail. Do you remember the
big fight Joe Russell refereed
with Arthur and Billy in the ring
—duration of the fight, two seconds. And the night we shook
dice till sun-up-seven dollars
were the total cash receipts, when
that was used up, the bartender
took the seven for wages and put
a new man on. There weve 287
changes of bartenders that night.
The bar, oh yes, we had a bar—
that is, a few, packing cases
nailed to the floor. Do you remember the upstairs, where the
boards only covered half the
floor? And G. W. after the
237th drink said he guessed he'd
go to bed —went upstairs walked
past the end of the floor and
landed on his head right where
he had been shaking dice-looked
around, hazily remembered that
he'd been there before and called forthe dice.
"Down and out"—no such a
thing in those days. These were
the days when the arrastras were
grinding out $1,000 per day.
Three days work and three days
to drink it up, then one day to go
back to work. She was a great
camp then—just as good today.
You watch.-W. H.

OUR POET'S PLAINT
A poet there was of Lillooet town
Prolific, prophetic,   but void
of renowri,
An editor also, kindly but  gruff,
Printed through courtesy his
abominable stuff.
Each week he appeared with his
wretched M. S.,
Till the editor's wrath   o'er-
came his finesse.
He loudly exclaimed this is	
junk,
Is described  by subscribers
As punk.
Go get me the news—we'll print
of the place,
Your poetry,    it, "Re-
quieseat in Pace,"
The poet in sorrow then ■ wended
his way
In search of  the   news  for
the publishing day,
He appeared on the morrow enraptured with glee
The   news   I   have   here is
news you will see.
Cap. Cox up the lake, his steamboat has sent
Will Elliott to the mines,
way he has went.
The snow has snowed down
the beautiful town,
The sun ;.j now   shining-,   is
still shi;ling down.
Thus far read   the   editor,   then
rose with a roar,
But wha" is the use to quote
any more.
Where five men are drinking, the
poet the fifth,
For five for a half has o a -
