THE ULLOOBT PROSPECTOR
Vol. 1 No. 41
FRIDAY, AUGUST   23,   1912
$2.00 Per Year
STRICTLY PERSONAL
This is the last day in
which to submit your tenders for the erection of the
hospital fence.
Mr. Norman L. Denison
from Creighton Valley hear
Vernon, is visiting Mr. and
Mrs. Samuel Gibbs here.
His stay will not probably
exceed a fortnight. He
is delighted with the scenery and surroundings of our
town.
C. D. Wray went up to
his lease last week, returning Saturday. He says the
creek was too muddy for
fishing. His camp was undisturbed except by ihe ubiquitous "bush tail."
Paul McMasters will return to the Bridge camp the
first of the week.
James Prosser left for
Kamloops Tuesday.
Dr. Christie has a force of
carpenters engaged in remodeling   the  rear  of  his
dwelling.
Mr. and Mrs. Fred Kinder left on Tuesday for
Strathway, Ontario, for a
six weeks visit with relatives.
Mr. George Bell, road
supervisor returned last
night from Bridge River.
Tony Viera made a trip to
his ranch this week, returning Thursday.
J. N. Cran leaves the first
of the week to take charge
of the Rossland branch of
the Bank of British North
America—Mr. E. Williams
will have charge of the bank
here during Mr. Cran's absence.
R. Burks is calling on
friends here today.
IRON   DEPOSIT
AT WHITEWATER
Monday's boat brought
down a party of five men,
who have been investigating
the iron deposits on the
Whitewater- a tributary of
the Chilicoten River. The
party consists of A. C. Gillies, mining engineer of
Vancouver, G. Howe and
W. J. McClure of North
Vancouver, James Rowbot-
tom and Thos. Mansen of
Lillooet. Nine horses were
taken in to carry the provisions and tools to the deposit, which is 120 miles
from Lillooet. Mr. Gillis
announces that he is very
favorably impressed with
the character, formation
and amount of the body of
ore examined.
It is tne intention of Mr.
Gillis to return shortly ard
make a further investigation of this promising proposition.
WILSON LUCIAN D«NE IT
-HE CAUGHT A FISH
Wilson Lucian, at one
timt connected with the
editorial staff of the Bing-
ville Bugle, but now one of
Seaton Lake's expert fishermen, landed an eight and
three quarter pound Rainbow
trout yesterday. This is the
prize fish so far this season
and the former Bingvillite
feels so jubilant over the
catch that he seriously contemplates taking a piece of
ground on the lake front
and bowing his neck to the
Hymeneal yoke.
ROAD WORK
PROGRESSING
The report that the Bridge
River road, now in course of
completion, would be abandoned at South Fork, is
without foundation. The
following   letter   from the
road superintendent is self-
explanatory:
Lillooet, B. C.
Aug. 23, 1912.
To The Editor.
Lillooet Prospector
Dear Sir:—In reply
to yours of the 13th inst. I
beg to inform you that no
change has been made in the
original plans in regard to
the Bridge River road. The
work is being, and will be
pushed ahead as rapidly as
possible.
The road will be completed to the South Fork bridge
site about the 4th of September. All arrangements are
being made for the Grader
camp to cross Bridge River
and push the toad onward
to the Coronation Mines.
Yours Obediently,
J. S. Bell,
Road Supt.
E. M. McBride chief Pro-
vencial road superintendent
passed through Lillooet enroute to Vancouver Thursday. Mr. McBride says on
his next trip he anticipates
going to Bridge River by
automobile.
Clarence Stephenson arrived from Lytton today on
a short visit with his brother Rafe—our industrious
blacksmith—and to renew
old acpuaintances.
RUSHING WORK ON
TELEPHONE LINE
The construction work on
the Bridge River Telephone
line is going steadily ahead
under the supervision of Mr.
Roy Burkholder. The difficult rock bluffs along Seton
Lake, where it was necessary to use powder on every
hole, have now been passed
and outside of crossing over
Mission Mountain pass—3200
feet in elevation- the difficult part of the task is over.
Record breaking time will
be made from now on and
from reports the line should
be completed before snow
flies. It is now possible to
talk from town to the end
of the line, which at present
is the mission, and the line
is open for puLlic use The
charge is twenty-five cents
for ten words and two cents
for each addhiunc.l word.
This seivite should piove of
great convenience to the
Bridge River settlers ; nd to
the great number of mining
men being attracted to that
mining section.
The telephone camp is
now located at one-mile
camp above the Mission.
An auto party consisting
of Mrs. Faucault, the Misses
Corte and Hoagland, Messrs.
R. Chetwynd and J. C. C.
Claike, of Wallachin, made
a short stay in Lillooet this
week. They report a pleasant trip and are greatly
pleased with Lillooet. The
ladies of the party were astonished at the mining activity shown here as they had
supposed Lillooet was simply a summer resort. The Prospector

FRIDAY, AUGUST 23, 1012
The welfare of an outlying district, beyond the reach of the
world's travel, and out of touch
with world's markets, is solely
dependent on the efforts of the
community residing therein. The
man who takes up a piece of
land, with the ultimate   end   in
view of a home of his own—who
hews a clearing through the forest, or brings water on to a sage
brush flat that will blossom and
produce as only a Lillooet flat
can produce—is a material aid to
that district.
The pre-empter, invariably the
man who has only the labor of
his own hands to depend on,
must work six months for wages
to enable him to work the other
six months on "my ranch." To
a man who has to earn the money by manuel labor, the paying
for the survey and the purchase
price of a dollar an acre, is in
itself enough to deter many from
making the attempt. Very few
who have not done so can realize the especial pride with which
a pre-emptor regards his place
when once the Crown Grant is
obtained. The young fruit trees
—the wonderfully growing garden—the log house, rough but
always hospitable—the pride
and pleasure of ownership, more
than recompense him for the
many trials and difficulties that
he has overcome.
The man who had the courage
and foresight to pre-empt a short
while ago, is the man today that
is selling for twenty thousand.
In our mines history of Lillooet we can point to many who
have made their stake and more
who are about to realize—but
the pre-empter has, as elsewhere,
been the main stay of the country and is indisputibly a winner.
A little chap was offered a
chance to spend rhe week in the
country, but refused. Coaxing,
pleading and promises of untold
wonders alike brought from him
nothing but the stubborn ultimatum "No country for mine."
"But why not?"
"Because," he responded,
' 'they have threshing machines
down there, and its bad enough
here where it's done by hand."
Exchange.
G. Gray Donald has resigned
his position as chief hydrograph-
er of this province to take up
the work of investigating the
water po -• er throughout the
province.
For a few hours last week a
Mexiean Joan of Arc was dictator of the town of Jaurez. With
ten rebel soldiei*s marching at
her heels she marched to the
police station and disarmed the
provisional chief of police and
rode away mounted on the police
horses. The woman is young
and is the wife of Col. Lazro
Alanis, the rebel commander,
who is operating along the border to the west.

SURVEY PARTY LEFT
FOR BRIDGE RIVER
G. M. Downton's survey
party left Wednesday for
the north fork of Bridge
River. Mr. Downton and
Mr. Leslie completed their
office work and followed the
party on Thursday.
The work on the north
fork will keep Mr. Downton
busily at work for at least
one month and on completion he will proceed with his
party to main Bridge River
where his work will keep
him employed until the
snow flies.
Mr. Downton, a Provincial
Land Surveyor is engaged
by the Government in making a transverse of the land
adjacent to Anderson Lake
and tying together the various pre-emptions and timber limits recorded there.
There have been quite a
number of discrepencies
found to exist between the
blue print map published by
the government and the locations made by pre-emptors
and others on Anderson
Lake. The appearance of
the surveying party will remove all doubts and misunderstandings.

THE WAVE OF
A HANDKERCHIEF
"I was one of a small party
riding on a steamer sailing down
a beautiful river in Cornwall.
The day was unusually hot and
in spite of the lovely scenery on
either hand, the people on either
bank were very spiritless and
disagreeable. Scarcely a word
was spoken on the steamer as it
glided down towards its destination. Suddenly one of the passengers espied a group of people
—men, women and children—on
the opposite bank, as silent and
somber as those on board. Then
the keen-eyed excursionist put
his hand to his pocket and drew
forth a handkerchief and waved
it. The effect was magical, a
young girl on the shore responded by waving hers. Another
passenger waved her handkerchief and a boy on shore replied.
So it went on. In a few minutes one after another, the faces
on board and on shore became
wreathed in smiles. Everybody
on board was now vigorously
waving his or her handkerchief
and everybody on shore did the
sane. Finally with a ringing
shout of good will, which was
heartily returned by the people
on the river bank, the steamer
and its now happy load sailed
away out  of  sight.
"Just the wave of a handkerchief started the gladness and
one cheery smile turned scores
of long faces into happy ones.
"Have you ever watched the
faces of a city crowd? What an
expression of hidden care you
can detect again and again. One
is almost tempted to go up to
some of these troubled-looking
people and ask what ails them.
It is said of the great and good
Lord Shaftesbury that no man
had a more sympathetic heart.
For many years he labored personally among the poor in London and was as much at home
with the coster and the street
seller as with titled folk in a
West End drawing room. One
day in the Mission he met a poor
coster with a most troubled look
on his face. The man had lost
his donkey by death—a very serious loss to the owner, who was
bound to the owner by the ties
of affection—while it was a real
help in procuring  his  livlihood.
Putting his hands on the man's
shoulder the noble lord Bpoke
words of true sympathy and
promised a bit of practical help.
The coster's face light up with
a smile which was almost seraphic. So with the poor flower
women. Knowing how their
street trade was often spoiled by
wintry weather,  Lord Shaftes-
HITS   AND   MRS
Mike got a job moving some
kegs of ponder, and, to the alarm
of his foreman, was discovered
smoking at his work. "Je-ru-
salem!" exclaimed the foreman.
"Do you know what happened
when a man smoked at this job
some years ago? There was an
explosion that blew up a dozen
men."
"That couldn't happen here,"
returned Mike calmly.
"Why not?"
'Cause there's there only you
and me here," was the reply.

At the bidding of the school
board in a Missouri town, a physician visited the local school.
He examined the eyes of the
scholars. The teacher sent a
note to the mother of one pupil
saying that he was not "right
optically." The following day
Willie brought back a reply to
the teacher which read: "The
old man whaled Willie last night
and I took a hand at him this
morning, and I think you will !
find him all right now."
The following from the Kam- j
loops standard for November '98 '
seems worthy of reproduction:
"Just as a commercial traveler
was writing his name on the
register of a hotel in Ashcroft
a bed bug appeared and meandered slowly across the page.
The man of grips paused in open
wonder, and, in a voice shaking
with emotion said: "Well, by
the eternal gods of war, I've
been bitten by Clinton spitlers,
bled by Kamloops moscpiitoes,
driven almost to insanity by
Vancouver jiggers, crawled over
by Victoria razzle-jacks and
interviewed by Barkerville gray-
backs, but I'll be blowed if Ashcroft isn't the first place where
bed bugs looked over the register to find my room number."
bury founded a loan fund for
them whereby they could always
borrow a little cash to help them
over evil times.
"It is triflng thing that will
change frowns into smiles. It
costs so little. The handkerchief
loses nothing by being waved."
