POOR  BOSSIE'S  GHOST
Four Lawsuits Follow
The Demise of Cow
A. LORING ISSUES ANOTHER WRIT
Humble In Life, Bovine Has
Posthumous Fame
The spirit of gentle Bossie, an
old red cow, which belonged to
the New England Company,
still lingers on in the law courts
to stir up strife. Bossie, who
during her lifetime Was a gentl«
bovine, since her death has
caused one trial before the Lytton magistrate, one damage
action in the supreme court, one
criminal trial before a jury at
the Clinton assize, and now has
caused another writ to be issued
in the supreme court. Incidentally, she has made one well
known legal gentleman liable for
a bill of costs for $942 fn connection with one of the actions.
The New England Company is
a wealthy English missionary
society, which owns a farm near
Lytton. On the farm, youthful
Siwashes are taught the art of
farming. Bossie, which was o "
of the animals on the farm, d *
appeared some time ago, and her
dead body was later discovered
in the pen of Mr. Alanzo Loring,
a rancher and butcher of Lytton.
Superintendent Fitzgerald of
the New England Company laid
an information laid against Loring for cattle stealing, but this
* was dismissed, Mr. Loring showing that he had bought the
animal as one of a big herd, in
ignorance that it had belonged
to the New England Company.
Mr. Fritzgerald on the dismissal of the police charge, had himself bdund^pver to prosecute the
case again before the grand jury
at Clinton assizes.   In the maan-
'. time Mr. Loring entered a damage suit in tke supreme court
claiming damages €or malicious
prosecution.     Mr.     Fritzgerald
actled in good faith and without
>  malice; and dismissed the claim
r for damages,
Since then Mr.. Fritzgerald
prosecuted his case before the
granoV jury at Clinton, and a true
bill was returned against Mr.
Loring. , When the./, full facts
were again brought out before
the petit jury, the jury brought
in a verdict of not guilty, and
. Mr. Loring was honorably acquired.
This week Mr. Loring through
his solicitors, Messrs. Lucas &
Lucas, has instituted a second
claim for damages for alleged
malicious prosecution, basing his
' ckdm oH the second prosecution
at Clinton assizes, when it is
alleged Mr. Fritzgerald was in
full possession of the facts of
the case, as brought out at the
first prosecution..

Unable to Purchase Guns, Hunters
And Dealers arc Sufferers
The recent addition to the
provincial statutes prohibiting
any person from selling firearms
unless the would-be purchaser
has received a permit from the
police, is causing some trouble in
Vancouver. The act came into
effect on September 1, and in
consequence the dealers now demand to see the permit before
they will engage to sell firearms.
So far no permits have been
issued. The city police and the
district game warden both refer
'applicants to the provincial
police, but the provincial police
claim they have received no instructions from Victoria, and decline to take the responsibility of
issuing permits.
Most  of  the  applicants   are
hunters who wish to arm themselves with .45 calibre revolvers
before going into the bush
search of bear.
Lillooet Lands to be Sold for Non-
Payment of Taxes
On October 11 a sale of lands
in the Lillooet district is to be
held at the court house, Lillooet,
all of them being crown granted
properties upon which delinquent
taxes are unpaid. Altogether
some 67 lots are advertised, upon
several of these, however, the
required sums have been paid.
These lands will, therefore, not
come under the hammer, the required sums having been paid.
E. W. Corkett, deputy assessor
and collector, will conduct the
sale, which is called for 10. a. m.

NEW ROAD   PROBABLE
Pavilion to Empire Valley
Through High Bar
MAY LATER EXTEND TO LILLOOET
; Road Superintendent More Speaks
Of Season's Work
Much development work along
the lines of opening up and maintaining roads and trails has been
done this year throughout the
Lillooet district, the heaviest
portion of work having been
carried out at the northern end
of the territory, where new
settlement has been exceptionally heavy.
Such was the statement made
to The Prospector by Mr. J. K.
More, road superintendent fur
Lillooet district.
Mr. More was in town Wednesday, en route from Ashcroft
to Fort George, whither he has
been called to meet Hon. Price
Ellison, who is on his way
through that point from Edmonton to Prince Rupert.
Speaking of new works projected, Mr. More stated that
there was a possibility of development in the Pavilion district
in the way of a wagon road
through High Bar and big Lar
to Empire Valley, following the
west side of river. While the
present suggestion is that the
terminal of this road shall be at
Pavilion, the superintendent ventured the opinion that it will
probably be found necessary to
carry it througe to Lillooet.
Questioned regarding location
of proposed new Pavilion bridge,
he said that this had not yet
been determined, only a few
light surveys having been run.
"How about the North Fork
load at Bridge River?"
"We will have to put in a new
bridge before that can be completed, the old one will be of
little use. For that we have a
good location a little higher up
the river, where there is a good
rock foundation, and where omy
a span of 125 feet will be necessary," said he.
While considerable development work has been done during
the year, still more energy has
been spent in improvements to
existing roads, changes of location and general maintenai.ee.
North of Canim lake the road has
been extended to the 105 mile.
From Horsefly an extension has
been made to McKinley creek,
and from Beaver Lake house the
road has been carried on to intersect with the Quenel Forks road.
This latter extension has opened
up a very fine valley in which
there is much good agricultural
land-:
Work has also been carried on
in the Horse Lake country, where
there has been a big rush of
settlement this year, and where
a thriving little community is
already springing up. THE PROSPECTOR

Wfrffy,
ADVERTISE!
Unless a merchant has the
Vight goods to sell at the
right price, it is useless for
4iim to advertise. If he can
fill the bill in this direction it
is foolish of him not to advertise. While citizens and
strangers alike may search
out, by much diligence or accident, the range and quality
of his wares, there is always
the probability that he may
be passed up. In any case it
is good policy, sound business and assured profit to
assist the search. Newspaper advertising has now
become recognized as anlm-
portant department of business to such an extent that
ist readers know well that
merchants who have confidence in the value of their
goods voice their confidence
through the columns of the
local press. And, knowing
this, purchasers act accordingly.   ____======
CANADIAN IMPERTINENCE
Right cleverly does Editor
Scott Bone, of the Seattle P.-
I., reprimand the Canadian
constabulary for breaking in
upon that American game of
poker at Coaticook the other
morning. It was a bit of im
pertinence that the poker
playing American is not
likely to forget, and, it may
be depended upon that some
reprisals will follow on first
occassion, says the Vancouver
Province, prefacing the following reprint of the article
question.
The P.-I. editor-in-chief
had this to say:
Just as Coaticook had
arrived at the happy condition of seeing its name on
the front page every day,
here comes this poker incident to put a dent in the
popularity earned by the
Quebec village. Coaticook
has received a setback in
American esteem from which
it may never recover. Putting William Travers Jerome
in the Coaticook cooler does
not harass the hairstrung
American sensibilities nearly
so much as to have a Canadian constable protrude his
presence into an American
institution and interrupt with
heavy shoes the harvest on a
flush or a king full.
Canada may trample on
the flag and get away with
it, but it would be well to
point out that our brothers
across the northern border
can go too far. We are
tolerant and good-natured
people. Britishers come over
here demanding their morning tub and otherwise deporting themselves in an eccentric manner without public
criticism. They have even
played cricket over here unmolested, if not in actual
peace; buL when a British
subject attempt i deny an
American citizen the right to
take home the increment of
a pat hand, the situation
assumes the dimensions of a
whipsaw.
The dispatches from Coati
cook indicate that the game
between William Travers
Jerome and the newspaper
correspondents was a denatured form of poker, technically known as "ten-cent
limit." Doubtless it will be
urged in defense of the Canadian constable that a 10-
cent limit game is not the
great American game wherein the roof is considered to
be the proper restraint to
put upon a player who holds
four aces. Anyway, the
telegraphic description of
the game may be wron<?«
Western diplomatists, who
are strong for the principle
of the thing, will choose to
look upon the incident an an
affront to an American institution, until all the facts are
known.
the value of the mineral output of the province increased
nearly 40 per cent., reaching
the total of over $32,000,000.
"Most of this output, 80
per cent, of the total, is from
the mining fields of Kootenay
and the Boundary districts
of Yale, and these districts
will no doubt continue to increase their output for many
years to come.   Mining has
developing the natural resources, it will be a gain all
round, and not least to the
coast cities, whose only hope
for permanent prosperity is
in such development."

MINING REVIVAL
That "Mining is coming
back to its own in British Columbia" has been the text
around which has been writ,
ten many editorials and news
"stories" in the columns of
The Prospector during the
past few months. It is gratifying, therefore, to note the
following article which ap.

"For several years the at.
traction of quick and easy
money to be made in buying
and selling city lots in Vancouver, Victoria and New
Westminster was drawing
the savings of working men
from all over the province*
and making it difficult to get
money locally for the development of mines. The evil
effects of this will not end
for some time. An unfortunately large proportion of
the wages of British Comma vuiKrcen will continue to go to complete payment for pioperties whose
fictious values have ceased to
advance. But as such investment no longer offer quick
returns, capital is already
seeking other channels.

How Harry Keary and Diu'.el
Hurley Shot Ccar in '18
The following extract from
The Prospector of Sept. 2, 1898,
tells how two of Lillooet's prominent sportsmen shot bear:
"Dan Hurley and Harry Keary
went oat shooting near Paid
mountain Thursday ar.d were
successful in bagging two hawks.
It is reported that Paul Santini
lost a young calf the same afternoon in that vicinity. Anyway,
Harry Keary shot something for
a deer and did not bring it home,
and Dan Hurley says he is positive that it was the calf. During
the day the boys were taking a
rest, and on looking at the hillside, about two miles distant,
they saw a large black bear
coining towards them. They
both got ready awaiting the arrival of Bruin. The bear came
steadily on, and they waited
until it was about fifty feet
away and Dan commenced firing
and wasted sevfral shots, *rJfrt
the bear did not stir. Then
Harry thought he could fix him.
During this time the bear was
getting closer. He'.fired a couple
of shots; the bear never even
winked but deliberately got up
and sat on a log in front of the
sportsmen. When Harry, got
finished firing the bear desired
to get better acquainted with the
sports and proceeded forward.

During the whole affair Harry
had kept his eye on a tree, and
immediately made for it. Dan
pulled his knife and wanted to
make a rush a la Manson and
have a hand to hand fight with
the bear. Harry says when he
got comfortably perched in the
tree he looked for his partner,
but Dan was only hitting the
high places, and the bear had
passed on, not. taking any notice
of them or their bullets. We
learn that arrangements have
been made to settle for the calf.

Lillooet: The Home Of Big Game
Now that the hunting season is in full swing, the mountain sheep, the many-
antlered stags and the pretty coated "Billy" goats are all on the alert and bounding
away to the far recesses of their mountain homes in an endeavour to escape the hunter's
gun. In addition to local sportsmen, three parties have come from afar to participate in
the sport. Henry Swartz. with his large pack train and assistants, has taken out two
hunters from England, and intends to go to the Whitewater section and hunt the wily
Big Horn.   Frank Gott is the guide for another English party, whilst W. G. E. Manson

Not a Few Changes
Thirty-five pupils were enrolled at the public school when the
fall session opened. Mis* J:.
Rowan is again in charge.
A Big "Bag" From Lillooet
has located his party, who are from Salt Lake cify, at the headwaters of Tyaughton and
Gunn creek. According to all reports from the district, game wardens and local
trappers, the game this year is in excellent condition, and large bags are expected to be
brought in this fall which vill probably outclass the splendid big game trophies that
have heretofore been secured, and for which the Lillooet district is so well noted. Other
parties are expected shortly, and all the guides are busy with horses, saddles and outfit
in preparation for their use.
Construction of Kettle Valley Line
At Hope Commenced
Dirt has begun to fly on the
Kettle Valley Railway at Hope.
As the first spade began work a
mile and **half from town, the
dust was not noticeable. Nine
station crews are in camp on A.
F. McDonald's ranch, and more
are being set to work as fast as
accomodation can be provided.
MacArthur Brothers Company
have set themselves the task of
completing their contract in 14
months. To accomplish it, they
must work all along the line at
once. Fortunately, though the
tunnels are numerous, none are
very long, and all can be attacked at once. The transport of
material and supplies will require
an army of men and many horses.
Provision has already been
made for medical service by Dr.
Ker who will be assisted by  Dr,
YOUTHFUL THEOLOGY
A Baptist minister had a young
son whom e wished to follow in j
his profession. The kid being a
hot number, thought it would be
wise to commence young in his
theological studies, and look up:
baptism as a starter. The family l
had a fine cat, the pride of the
household, which also had several kittens. The kid began prac-
tising qn these and managed to
baptise the kittens in good shape.
But, alas, the old cat proved a
failure after several fruitless attempts, and the noble youngster,
1 in a fit of anger, gave old puss a
fling into the corner of the room,
exclaiming as he did so: "Web,
then, be a Methodist and go to
Shell."

Work on the Thompson river
bridge is now in full swing.
The bridge is to be all of steel,
and the span is 200 feet. A
tower has been built on the north
side of the Thompson and a two-
inch cable has been laid to the
south side by means of which
the steel will be placed in. position. A large hopper has been
built for the handling of gravel
and cement and tracks have
been laid from the river hank to
the bridge, head. Approaching
completion of railway construe
tion over this section of Canadian Northern is resulting in a
change of conditions here. Former big payrolls of construction
days must now be replaced by
other sources of revenue. Agricultural development and the
heavy forwarding business to the
Lillooet district will ensure a
continuance of considerable business prosperity.
J. Warren, late proprietor of
Jack's cafe, is also moving to
Hope, where he is buildiag a
restaurant, which he will manage.

and operated the first pool room
