Mining Opening Up In The
Lillooet District
The Broken Hill
LOCAL AND GENERAL ITEMS.
Mr. Hunt, Superintendant of
the Broken Hill mineral claim, at
Bridge river, was in town last
week and met a party of interested mining men from the coast
and England, whom he took over
the claim. They were highly
satisfied with what they saw and
reported the conditions as follows.
There is a 90 foot ledge with
225 feet drifting and crosscuts,
the walls are not cut yet, the
average assays for the entire
drifting is $16.75 with concentrates of 176.10, 174 of which is
gold, work begun last November and a wonderful amount has
been accomplished for the short
while they have been at it.
There is three miles of trail, a
cabin has been built, 8000 pounds
of supplies been packed in, and
over 400 feet in tunnels and open
cuts done.
It is a large body of low grade
ore which will be easily mined
and milled, and is purely a concentrating proposition, and is
expected will turn into a silver
mine eventually as all indications point that way.
A concentrating mill will be
erected in the neighborhood of
Seabrings ranch, with about a
mile of areial trams.
The party, which consisted of
C. J. Beacham, London, England, Wm. Bundette, F. C. Porter, H. Pollard, H. B. Neilsen,
J. P. McConnell (Saturday Sunset) and J. Hendricks, all from
Vancouver, left for the coast with
200 pounds of ore for assaying.
Horse Shoe Bend
Mr. T. R. Rigg, representing
London, England capitalists, arrived in Lillooet last week en
route for the Horse Shoe Bend
mineral claim, on the North Fork
of Bridge river, accompanied by
Mr. J. A. Shertchly, Consulting
mining engineer of very wide experience. The property, which
is near Burkholder's ranch, is
considered a good prospect, and
if it works out as expected, it
will be a big asset to the district.
Mr. Rigg has complete charge
and has gone on the property
fully equipped with both capital
and experience, also, from reports, has with him one of the
best consulting engineers to be
obtained. Work will be started
at once.
Mr. Rigg was accompanied by
his wife and child.
NOTICE
The Prospector has taken up
its abode in more extensive
quarters and will, from now on,
be published in the new building
opposite the Church of England,
on Main Street.
If you have friends or relatives
visiting you let us know about it.
Mr. and Mrs. A. Noel arrived
this week from the coast where
they have been all winter.
H. Reed left for Bridge river
to work on the Horse Shoe Bend
mining claim.
Mr. and Mrs. G. L. Johnson
of Douglas, Alaska, arrived in
town en route for the Brigman
ranch to visit their friends.
Mrs. Adams arrived home from
her visit to the Cariboo, having
made a pleasant trip and spent a
very enjoyable time.
H. Burkholder of North Fork
passed through Lillooet en route
for the Fountain ranch where he
will stay for some considerable
time.
Conrade Herberg of Berlin,
Germany, brother-in-law of H.
Murk, arrived in town with his
family to settle among us. We
welcome him to our town.
There is a an abundance of
blossom on the fruit trees in
Lillooet and hear vicinity, and
from present indications it is safe
to predict another good crop this
year.
Bob Hume, late manager of the
Prospector, left this week for the
Alkali Lake district to take up
his duties in the Forestry department. We wish him every success in his enterprise.
The Rev. Mr. Horton, Methodist preacher of Ashcroft, preached his farewell sermons in this
town last Sunday in a very direct
but appealing manner. We wish
his every success in the work he
is undertaking, wherever he may
The land registry for April, intimates an increase in real estate
activities. The fees collected a-
mounted to well over $19,000, a
slight increase over March, and
$2000 more than February. There
were 2067 applications for registration of deeds etc.
The Pemberton boys were just
one goal better than the Portage
eleven, when they met at the
Portage in a soccor match last
week, but the Portagers are looking forward to the return match
which is expected to come off in
the near future, when they hope
to reverse the decision. The ref.
was a good one and had full control of the game.
Police constable J. H. Robinson, No. 190, has resigned from
the Vancouver Police Force to
live on a ranch in Lillooet. He
is reported to have been a very
popular member of the force and
his fellows wished him all kinds
of luck. We know that 'Robert'
will agree with us before long,
that if there is one place better
than all others in British Columbia, Lillooet is that place.
The Canadian government has
chartered the steam whaler Herman to search the Artie circle for
Stefansson's ship, the Karluk,
which broke away from the ice
during a storm in October last.
The Russian polar expedition
are also missing and the department of marine St. Petersburg,
has acquired two Norwegian vessels, Hertha and Eclipse, for
search purposes.
The number of visitors registered at the hotels since April 30
is 136.
C. Smith of Pemberton was in
town this week, he reports everybody progressing favorably.
The local baseball fans clashed
with the Pavilion nine and were
successful in defeating them by
a score of 5 to 1.
T. R. Rigg of North Fork came
into town this week for supplies
for the Horse Shoe Bend mining
camp.
Mr. and Mrs. O. Warren have
returned from their trip to the
coast and have resumed duties
at the Excelsior hotel.
Grading on the Pacific Great
Eastern is now in full swing at
Kelly Lake, Clinton and ten miles
north.
There is now a good opening
for auto traffic on the Bridge
River road. There seems to be
plenty of trade for at least one
machine.
A traveler over the Bridge
River road reports it now in excellent condition, and that ranchers throughout the valley are]
making great improvements on
their properties.
A land slide on the Lillooet-
Lytton road caused considerable
inconvenience to the traffic. It
occurred on Sunday morning at
or near the twenty mile camp.
A gang of men were put to work
and through traffic was resumed
in the evening.
Shamrock IV.. SirT. Lipton's
new challenger for the America
cup, described by those-who have
seen her as the most wonderful
boat of her kind ever built, is to
be launched on May 25. Her
trial races will begin the first
week in June and continue until
the middle of July, principally
on the Solent.
The new challenger is said to
be entirely original in design and
to combine many new and novel
features.
While riding his wheel on Brink
street, Nelson Chappel, of Ashcroft, lost control of his machine
at the critical moment when an
auto was about to cross in front
of him. It is not known what
happened to the bicycle, but before he could clear himself he
was knocked down by the auto
which passed over his body with
both front and hind wheels. He
was hurried to the hospital where
it was found that he had sustained injuries to the extent of
three broken ribs and a fractured collar-bone.
Big Slide On The Canadian
Pacific Railway
A Clote Call
A bad mountain slide occurred
on the C.P. railway about 8 miles
east of Spuzzum, on Wednesday
morning. It derailed the dining
car of Number 13 travelling west
and hurled it down the bank.
The cook, who was in the dining
car at the time was very seriously injured, an only escaped being
killed by being thrown into a
space between the car and the
stove. The waiter was only
slightly bruised, and to all appearances was none the
for his experience. All
was delaid for five hours
half.

Six Firemen Killed
An explosion on May 5 at the
Government of Panama dynamite
magazine resulted in the killing
of eight persons. Nineteen were
seriously injured. The property
was destroyed. The explosion
was caused by a brush fire which
made its way to the interior of
the building. Six of the dead
and most of the injured are firemen. A man and a woman who
were watching the blaze from a
distance were torn to pieces.
The concussion of the explosion
shook Panama.
Captain Moran Departs
We hear with regret of the
death of Captain Moran of the
Vancouver Fire Brigade. As a
firefighter he has a record as a
fearless man and an excellent
leader, who would not send a
subordinate where he would not
go himself. Many times he
faced death in carrying out his
duties. He joined the brigade in
1886, was made Captain in 1896,
since when he has been in charge
of the Mount Pleasant branch.
Crucified and Burned
Two hundred and fift Mohame-
dan Albanians, captured by the
Epirote invaders at Hormova,
were crucified in the orthordox
church at Kodra, according to
information received by the Albanian government. The Epi-
rotes are said to have set fire to
the church afterwards and allowed the bodies to burn.
The like of this should make
us thankful that we are here.
All hope of rescuing alive the
203 miners entombed by explosion last week at Eccles, W. Pa.
has been abandoned. Rescuers
were unable to force their way
to the burning shafts. This disaster is the second largest in the
history of W Virginia, and
caused by gas explosion.

The Fraser river claimed two
more lives when last week John
Charles Lual, better known as
Dutch Charlie and a Chinaman
were drowned. Dutch Charlie
has been running the government
ferry about a mile and a half up
the river from Lytton, for the
past eighteen years, and was
counted one of the most careful
boatmen in the country.
"Water-front Development"
will form the theme of discussion
at one session of the International Conference on City Planning
to be held at Toronto on May
25-27 next. Mr. Gourlay, representative of the B. T. on the
Harbor Commission, will give an
address on this subject, which
should be of interest to the whole
country. Our harbors are national gateways, and the Dominion Government is expected to
contribute over $6,000,000 to this
particular project.
Rev. Father Bohr, St. Mary's
Mission, arrived in town with the
news of a horrible tragedy at the
Indian reserve near Merrit, an
Indian woman called Mary Spring
being murdered by a well known
bad Indian by the name of Tulle-
lor. At the preliminary trial accused was committed for trial
at the Kamloops Assizes to be
held next month.
This is the old story over again
of an Indian inflamed by drink,
and place the blame where you
will it is time that scmethirg
was done to stop this kind of
traffic among the Indians.
A mysterious malady has appeared in a New Brunswick town
and is causing considerable alarm
among the residents. Local physicians are completely mystified
and ten outside doctors have not
been able to throw any light on
the situation. Some of them,
however, are disposed to diagnose the epidemic as Asiatic
cholera. It is certain that the
disease was brought to the neighborhood by an immigrant family
whom Mr. McKelvie recently engaged to work on his farm. A
strict quarantine is being enforced.
In the death of the Duke of
Argyll, son - in - law of the late
Queen Victoria, Canada has lost
a firm friend whose influence in
the old land in favor of this De-
minion has been widely felt ever
since he occupied Rideau Hall as
our governor general.
He was a truly royal gentleman, able withal, and his death
following so closely on the passing of our own beloved Strathcona, leaves a still wider gap in the
ranks of the friends of Canada
in the mother country. His keen
insight into affairs pertaining to
this land has been at our service
perhaps of tener than the ordinary
Canadian citizen realizes.
