 THE PROSPECTOR.
Vol. i. No. 7.
LILLOOET, B. C. AUGUST 26, 1898.
$2.00 a year.
\J
BRIDGE   RIVER.
H.   Ostrander and   Robert Sparrow
iave finished  doing  their  assessment
fwork on their claim*, nea* the  Lome
{roup.   The group consists of six claims
[an 1 W. H. Miller and E. A. Richey are
[also interested in  some of  the  claims
[with Messrs. Ostrander and   Sparrow.
[The ledge where they were working has
sen uncovered for  some  distance and
iverages about three feet in width show-
ling fee gold.
T. P. Reed and I. Taylor have about
[finished their work on their claims,
L-which shows up exceedingly well with
the work so far done. They have also
[built a comfortable cabin and have dug
[a ditch for to bring in water for sluicing.
fMr. Reed will probably be down in a
[few diys.
Glen and Richardson are working on
(the Auditorium and Cosmopolitan and
fhave opened up a pretty nice ledge '&%
feet in width.   The work on the Mable
[fraction   is   finished,.     The  ledge was
[traced   from   the  Litt'e Joe across the
[fraction, and they sunk thirty feet, and
[the   ledge   i°  the  same quality as the
[Little Joe and Ida M»y.     Glen & Richardson expect to  leave   shortly for the
South Fork where they have secured the
old river channel and will put in a dam
[so  they  can  work.   Several thousand
[dollars were spent a few years ago, but
[had a number of disadvantages to contend with.   In early days it was around
Lthis place that such a large quantity of
[gold was taken  out, and it is still rich.
[They intend putting in the season with
fa few men to work the ground.
The Lome arrastra is nearly finished
[according to the reports. Six men are
fworking away on the claims and have
; quite a lot of rock ready for the arrastra.
! They have sunk a shaft about fifteen
feet on the old Lome ledge, which is
far better than was expected.
About a dozen men are around the
Pioneer claim and some good work is being done. The arrastra will be running
shortly.
A number of prospectors and miners
who have been working around Cadwallader are putting in time on Bridge river
and the South Fork placer mining and
all are doing first rate.
A very rich ledge was uncovered on
the Bend 'Or group in the Little Joe
tunnel last week. The quartz taken out
is reported as being the best yet struck,
the ledge being literally speckled
with gold. The Bend 'Or group is a
good property and the owners have done
some excellent work opening up the
ledge. At present only a few men
are employed and it is expected that the
itaff will be increased shortly. J. M.
Mackinnon and W. B. Mackinnon, M.E.,
is at present visiting the property.
A few men are working on the Ida
May group with good results and it is
expected   that  more   will   be   put  on
shortly as the intention is to start a tunnel lower down.
A number of the prospec'ors throng •
out the district are complaining about
the hard times and wondering whv capitalists will not come into the country.
Parties who control capital have an idea
that that it would lie useless to appr< a h
holder? of mineral locations, as such unreasonable prices have been asked heretofore. Let the men who have locations
with a good surface showing, give a
reasonable offer, a working bond with
a cash payment, and then money will
be distributed through the district and
the conditions will improve. We hear
of so much in sight, why is it not taken
out or is it too hard work or expensive to
get it out.
niNINQ   NOTES.
H. Ostrander and R. Sparrow returned
Tuesday fiom Cadwalla U-r creek, where
they had been doing assessment work
on some mineral claims belonging to
themeeivep.
\V. H. Slipper after looking over tl e
district for U.e pi s few weeks returned
to Vancouver Tuesday. He will probably go east and may visit this section
again before long.
C. F. Law returned Saturday from his
visit to McGillivray with Win. Brett.
Mr. Law \*as looking over the Brett
Bros' property, ami was well pleased
with it. He took samples of the rock to
the const with him and will most likely
take up the properly, will let a contract
for a 100 foot tunnel
LILLOOET-LYTTON ROAD.
U
Wm. Halymore arrived from Cadwallader the first of the week and reported
everything as looking first rate in that
section. He went to Vancouver Wednesday on a short visit.
All the men employed on this end of
the Lillooet-Lytton wagon road arrived
in town 1»et Saturday noon. There is
only about 3 miles of work to be finished
when the road would be completed and
would allow teams to go right through
to Lytton, a distance of about f« rty
miles. The residents of Lytton forwarded a petition to the government- last
week and this week a petition signed by
a number of residents of Lillooet was also
sent to Headquarters. Both petitions
asked for the speedy completion of the
road. Twenty thousand dollars has al-1
ready been spent, and now with an extra $3,500 it could be pushed to completion and the government seeing the
necessity will likely grant the wishes
of the people of this section and not
allow such an amount of money to be
practically wasted. It it hoped that
arrangements will be made shortly as
there are a number of the men who have
been working on the road in town, and
who knows the work that could be put
on. 	
The Wonderful Oroup.
Major Bennett informed a reporter
last Friday that he had completed
the purchase of the Wonderful group
of mines near Jack's Landing, Bridge
River, for a local syndicate, says the
Vancouver News-Advertiser.
It is proposed to proceed with a force
of men at an early date. This property is
well known and has been most favorably reported on by a local mining engineer.
There is a ledge running through the
property 12 feet in width and careful assays of it run from $9.50 to $144.
What the district requires, however,
is good loads wlvch it certainly sadly
lacks just now. Good roads are necessary in order to get in supplies and
machinery.
John A. Murray returned this week
after some time spent on Cadwallader
creek. He is interested in several good
properties and has been assisting in doing the assessment work on them.
A party of four who have heen camping in town for the past week left on
Tuesday for the Blaekwater district.
The party comiet«d of W. H. Dexter
and his son A. D.. and J. McPherson
and s6n all of Vancouver. They will
prospect the Bla< k vater and as soon as
they strike something satisfactory will
go to work at once and develop it. They
are very much impressed with the reports received from Blaekwater.
The Blaekwater district seems to be
attracting the attention of prospectors.
Blaekwater has a future and parties who
are able to hold on to their properties
will reap the benefits in a few years to
come.   Keep your eye on Blaekwater.
The Golden Cache company will clean
up about the fifth of next month. The
machinery and power is working first
class and a reasonable clean up will be
made. The whole works is now running
very cheaply, the company making a
great saving in the power. Twenty-five
men are at present working.
Mr. J.
M. Mackinnon the well known
mining man and president of the Golden
Cache company and W. B. Mackinnon,
M.E., came in from Vancouver on Mondays stage. They visited the Cache for
a few days and then proceeded up Bridge
river where they will look at the Bend
'Or property of which Mr. J. M. Mackinnon is one of the owners. They will
be absent about ten days.
Wm. Young one of the owners of the
Lome group came down from Cadwallader Thursday evening to arrange for
some small pieces of machinery in connection with their arrastra. The arrastra
will be started the first of the month
and will have a twelve day run before
washing up. The result will no doubt
be good as the quality of the rock is
good all through. The owners will continue to work the property and are not
looking for a sale. The rock from the
Lome group is as nice as coulu be wished. The gold is scattered all through
and can be plainly seen with the eye on
James McKivor and Henry Hodge left | any part of the rock. The washup will
for Pemberton Meadows Tuesday and ■ be eagerly looked for by those interested
will be absent for a few weeks. They in- in this section. Mr. Young will return
tend taking up land and will most likely j tomorrow to the claims with the neceb-
settle in that part of the countr". ; «wy material for the arrastra.
Seaton Lake Claims.
Matt Gilfoil owns a couple claims, the
Anaconda aud Comstock on Seaton lake*
about two miles from the Mission and
about the same distance from the lake.
Several parties have looked at the claims
und seem to be very  much   impressed.
The ledge is five -feet wide aatV is good
solid ore white iron capping; Above the
ledge is about 100 feet of porphyry in
which Ptratas and kidneys from four to
five inches of the same kind of ore runs
through the whole distance, and above
the porphyry is granite for miles back.
The claims are well situated and could
be easily worked. Mr. Gilfoil has done a
little work on them this spring, and ran
an open cut and a short tunnel. He is
well satidflel with the property and says
he intends holding them, although if any
body comes along he will be resonable
with them. The assays from the rock
gives silver copper and gold.
A. W. Smith. M. P. P., returned from
a short visit to the capital on Monday
evening.	
T.Cole of Pavilion who was hurt some
time ago by his mowing machine is now
able to be around again.
P. McLaughlin employed at D. Fraser's
house has recently purchased a bicycle
and in a few weeks will be a scorcher.
Mrs. Robb arrived in town last Saturday evening from Ashcroft and isemhloy-
ed with Mrs. Glencross in the Hotel Victoria dining room.
The prize list for the Royal Agricultural  and  Industrial  society  at  New
Westminster has been received, and posters have been distributed  throughout
| the district.     There  will probably  lie

LILLOOET, B.C., FRIDAY AUGUSTV8 1S'.)8.
The laying off the men on the Lillooet-
Lytton wagon road Saturday closed
down work on one of the most important
works in the country. The government
liiia so far spent about $'20,000 building a
portion of this road, and with an expenditure of about $3,500 more, the road
could be coin pitted with the greatest of
ease. The1 e are only a few more miles
to be finished on the road and then
teams-; would be able to go through to
Lytton. The people at both ends and
those along this road will derive great
benefits when completed. The whole
distance is comparatively level and the
grades have all been overcome. The distance from Lillooet to Lytton is about
forty miles. Petitions from both Lillooet
and Lytton have been forwarded to the
government asking that something be
done to coniyi'ete the road.
The Hon. Charles A. Semlin has been
pucecspful in forming a government.
The cabinet is as follows: Hon. Oharles
A. Semlin, piemier and chief commissioner of lands and works; Hon. F. C.
Cotton, finance minister; Hon. Joseph
Martin, attorney-general; Hon. Dr.
iMcKechnie, president of the council;
lion. J. Fred. Hume, provincial secretary and minister of mines. This will
X>robably complete the cabinet for the
present, although there is power to have
move. A speaker will be selected when
the houec meets. The Hon. Charles A.
Semlin will be able to have a strong
support and will carry on the affairs of
the government.
A convention of the Temperance Confederation was held at Vancouver last
-week. They will send canvassers into
the upper country to work for the good
cause. Lillooet does not seem to be in
it from their reports, and we presume
because this is a prohibition stronghold
that they do not intend to exert themselves.
Several of the newspaper throughout
the province which were not in sympathy with the Semlin party before the
election haye changed their tone somewhat.
Will Effect Election Protests.
According to late reports the reply to
the election petition against the return
of Hon. Colonel Baker raises some interesting points on election protest matters ami will if valid have a great influence on the petition filed. The reply
in question is made by Messrs. Tupper,
Leters aid Lot ts, as counsel for Colonel
jj.it or    'Hid   asks   that the  petition be,
X
i   i i
dismissed on the grounds,among others,
that the Supreme court has not had conferred on it any authority to try eleciion
oetitions; that the officer requin d by the
act to be appointed by the chief justice
to attend to the preliminaries in such
cases was never appointed, and that
while the act requires the eacnnty for
cost to be deposited in the Bank < f Eug-
and, the money has not been so deposited.

persons were aboard the train at the
time of the accident, five of whom were
killed outright, three injured, and one
escaped unharmed, saving himself by
jumping on the swinging wreck of the
bridge as the train went over.
Price of Copper.
In few things is the market so protni -
ing as for cooper. Copper has lately advanced 12 cents per pound, which
means enormous profits, asthe consumption of copper is much greater than its
production and a demand is always to
be filled. The copper properties in the
Blaekwater district a short distance from
Lillooet, should be a great help in bringing this district into prominence win.
the mining com panies. Blaekwater district h$»s large, solid ledges of good copper ore, which will no doubt very
snortly attract the attention of capitalists. Quite a number of prospectors
are in Blaekwater at present and others
are making preparations for a prospecting trip.

LYTTON notes.
[•••I
A petition is being circulated to be forwarded to the government with a view
of having the Lillooet-Lytton road put
through this season. It is being gladly
signed by everyone.
The archdeacon of Yale has returned
from the coast where he had been attending a meeting of the syn-^d.
Miss Crease is at All Hallow's school
at Yale at present superintending the
scholars in their classical music studies.
One of our popular young men took a
number of Lytton ladies for a drive up
the new road last Saturday. No fatalities happened which speaks wonders
for this road, as the aforesaid gentleman
usually goes comfortably to sleep on
leaving Lytton, and only awakens at
the Half-Way House in order to get a—
cigar.
The new copper telegraph wire has
been strung on the poles through tl e
town.
The Salvation Army band played in the
hall Monday night. They are doing all
the towns along the line. We would
like to see a branch of the army established here as there is any quantity of
material and some grand victories would
no doubt be made?
Miss E. Trodden returned home on
Saturday from Vancouver where she has
been visiting relatives for some time.
R. Silverthorn and party have returned from a fulling trip at Botanie lake.
They tell the usual fish stories—from 12
all the way up to 20 inche3. We can
vouch for this as the truth for they had
some fully two feet long.
M. P. Stewart a mining man from
Ashcroft was in town the first of tie
week looking after his interests in this
part of the district.
A temperance eociety will shortly be
started in view of the prohibition plebiscite. We learn that one voter is inclined that way but am not sure.
Agricultural Commission.
The following communication was received at The Pkospkctor office this
week from R. E. Gosnell, secretary of
Agricultural Commission.
Deak Sir : I enclose a list of the subjects of enquiry in connection with the
Agricultural Commission. It would be
impossible for the commissioners to
visit every locality of the province in
which farming is carried on, to ascertain
the views of every person. In order,
however, that all may have an opportunity farmers and others are invited to
express their opinions in regard to any
or all of the subjects referred to, addressing communications to the secretary of
the Agricultural Commission, Victoria,
B.C.
Following are the subjects:
1. The social, industrial and financial
welfare of agriculturists.
2. The incidence of the tax on mortgages.
3. Irrigation in the dry belts of the
province.
4. Cold storage for the beef products
of the Interior.
5. Forestry—the prevention of forest
fires, etc.
t>. The reclamation, clearing and
draining of lands.
7.. The settlement of unocccupied ag-
grienbnrMl lamlp.
8. The establishment of Provincial
Experimental Stations.
9. The e8tabli8hmentof Mutual Credit
Associations.
10. The conservation and improvement of pasturage and and the pron o-
tion of cattle-raising and dairying interests. H
11. The access to markets, means
and rates of transportation.
12. All other nutters directly or indirectly connected with agriculture in
Bfii-h Columbia.

BOMBARDMENT   OF   SANTIAGO.
Realizing the importance of providing
B( me strong attraction to assist in entertaining the thousands of visitors who
j re expected to attend the Provincial
lair at Westminster during Octoher, the
directors of the Royal Agricultural & Industrial Society of British Columbia and
the Citizen' Celebration Committee cast
about for some means of attaining this
Ltndable end.
After mature deliberation and a careful canvass of the respective merits of
the several specialties, the prefeieme
was given to the offer of a Hamilton.
Ont., fireworks manufacturers.
The great spectacular scene, which
will be put on or the first tine is entitled "The Bombardment of Santiago
by the American Fleet," and also showing the great land battle between Gen.
Shafter's forces and the Spaniards.
At the conclusion of " The Bombardment of Santiago," there will be a magnificent display of fireworks. There
will also be some sixty fine separate displays, exhibiting the very latest triumphs of the fireworks maker's art, the
whole being on a scale never before witnessed west of Winnipeg.
This magnificent pyro spectacular entertainment, which has been obtained
at a cost of over $3,000, will be given on
lour different nights, and will l>e worth
seeing, and, no doubt, it will prove here
as in the eastern cities, to be the best
" draw " which the exhibition directors
and citizens' committee could have
secured.

The New Postal Regulation.
The  following  epistle  was  received
this week for publication.
The new rule in the postal regulation*
of Canada will not be received, we are
afraid, in the same manner as one would
receive a long lost sweetheart, viz: with
open arms.   We   will   be  more   apt to
turn against it and say, nay, we would
rather adhere to the old system that of
perfect privacy.   It is perfectly satisfactory so far as business  is concerned to
have the firm name printed on the upper
left hand corner of the envelope, but on
private letters we think that it is depriving us of  a  certain privilege.   A man
will no  longer  be able to write to his
girl in secret.   Everyone will know it.
Postmasters, clerks and  postmen  will
chuckle to themselves and enjoy the fun.
Anyone who happens to see the envelope
lying around by mistake, instead of being burned, will guess our secret and
speak it forth to  the  whole world who
shall magnify the little circumstances,
