THE
PROSPECTOR
Vol. 3, No. 8.
LILLOOET, B. C, FRIDAY, AUG. 31, 1900
$2.00 a year.
'■*s.
Arthur F. Noel left Wednesday morning for tbe Bend'Or mines and on bis
return will leave for tbe coast.
The Bend'Or property is looking first
rate and tlie monthly cleanups will be
made about the first of tbe month.
SS
Last week the Woodchuck with a
seven days run cleaned up in tbe neighborhood of $800 from their arrastra.
J. F. Gibson and Jas. Rowbottom left
this week for Cadwallader to do assessment work on claims in that section.
The Lorne arrastra is working away
on the same rock as all spring the weekly cleanups averaged about the same.
A. F. Rosenberger of Nelson who has
been in tbe dictrict the past week left
this week via Ashcroft. He is very
much pleased with the district and expects to return again in a short time.
1S
Mr. T. P. Reed with work lately prosecuted on the Maud S Fraction has shown
up a good ledge over four feet in width
and showing gold across the ledge. 8.
Gibbs and E. J. Taylor are also interested in this property.
James McKivor and Wm. Durban re-
turned from Cadwallader the first of the
week having spent several weeks there
working on their claims. They brought
come very nice ore down with them, be=
ing heavy mineralized.
H. J. Kearv made a tnp in the neighborhood of Alexander creek the first of
the week and located a couple mineral
claims. The reports from this section
the past few days have been very good
and has been visited by several prospectors.
Messrs. Milton Rathburn of New
York, and Alex McDonald, proprietor of
the Hotel Victoria, returned from Cadwallader creek on Wednesday after
spending a week looking over mining,
properties. They are well pleased with
the lookout of that section.
x/	
Within this year some splendid strictly free-milling claims have been staked
in tbe vicinity of Bridge River, about
75 miles from Lillooet. This mineral
belt is about 8 miles in length, and is
known and . recorded as the Forty
Thieves group, and includes many very
good properties which are now being
worked by arrastra tubs with excellent
results. The names of a few of the best
ore producers are the Woodchuck,
yielding an average of $100 per ton; the
Lorne, which adjoins the Woodchuck,
has an average output of $1,500 per
week, produced by an arrastra tub
which treats a ton of ore per day; the
Black Jack, Pioneer, Alhambra, Maud
S, Bl»-, Bird, Little Joe and White Fox
are all good veins, running from 18
inches to 14 feet in width and showing
free gold.—Vancouver World.
Labor Dav Proclaimed.
This week's British Columbia Gazette
contains a proclamation declaring Monday, Sept. 3rd, a public holiday throughout the province.
Declared A Fake
J. R. Russell, Police Magistrate,
referee in the Johnson and Hackett
boat race, took evidence under oath today in an investigation asked for by
those who had lost money by betting on
Hackett. Hackett swore he sold the
race at the suggestion of Johnson and
implicated W. Quann and J. McLean.
Johnson was not present at tbe investigation, but Quann and McLean swore
that Hackett's affidavit was false in
every charge made. Referee Russell
announced his decision that' Johnson-
Hackett was a fake, but reserved his
decision as to whether bets should be
paid or not.
The Salmon Fisheries.
This seasons salmon fishery on the
Fraser River is the worst for many
years. The total pack it is estimated
will not exceed 125,000 cases. Wbile
this is a small advance on the packs for
1890 and 1892, there was not one-third of
the capital invested in the business that
there is now and, therefore, there can
be no comparison from a business point
of view between those seasons and tbe
present one. Of course the unfavorable
result this season were intensified by
the strike which lost at least two weeks
of the season and probably diminished
the pack by neaily 50,000 cases. In any
event however, it weuld have been a
most unfavorable season for both the
canners and the fishermen.
J. E. Johnson Daad.
A telegram received last Tuesday
from Seattle stated that G. E. Johnson
had died there and asking instructions
at to disposal of the body.
It will be remembered that Mr. Johnson left here two weeks ago in very poor
health, intending to spend the winter at
some California hot springs. According
to the telegram he must have been
worse when lie reached Seattle, and unable to travel any further.
In making of his will a few days before he appointed H. L. Roberts and
W. B Bailey aa his executors. Mr.
Roberts, who was in Victoria, was communicated with and is now in Seattle
where tbe body will be buried.
Mr. Johnson was a native of Sweden
and prior to engaging in the hotel
business here was bridge foreman on tbe
C.P.R. He owned both the Oargile and
the Grand Central hotels and leased
them just before leaving for California.
He leaves a widow and two joung
children a boy and a girl.—Ashcroft
Journal.    	
Agree to Arbitrate.
Winnipeg, Aug. 24.—Manager Whyte,
of the C.P.R., was met by representatives of the strikers this afternoon. The;
made a proposition to him to submit the
question of machinists' wages, which is
now practically the only difficulty in the
way, to arbitration. Mr. Whyte accepted the offer, one or two minor matters
relating to the allied mechanics' and
boilermakers' schedules to be arranged
before the arbitrators are appointed.
The machinists claim tbey are paid
three, four and five cents less per hour
than is paid in towns and cities to the
south, where living is cheaper, and even
in Winnipeg higher wages rate for the
same work. This will be a question for
arbitration.
It was reported to-day that a carload
of French-Canadian mechanics from
Montreal passed through this city for
points in tlie west.
The conductors and trainmen are to
hold a meeting on Sunday to discuss
matters.   The engineers may also meet.

River Colony.
London, Aug. 25.—General t'aden-
powell, according to a despatch to the
Strand from Pretoria, dated August 23,
has headed off General Dewet, preventing his juncture with the main body of
the enemy. General Dewet abandoned

LEGISLATURE ASSEMBLY.
Victoria B. C. August 17th :—During
the past week at the legislature a number
of most important subject have been up
for consideration and in some instances
through the popular circumstances of the
present session their further discussion
has been stood over to the next session.
This is tbe case with regard to a general
redistribution of the seats of the province. On either side of the house it was
admitted that tbe sudden increase of
population in certain sections had
seriously affected the equity of
the present arrangement so
that in some of the newer constituencies there were eight times as
many voters as in some others It was
held however that until the conclusion
of the Dominion census which will
probably be taken next spring, no interference should be made at present, and
Mr. Brown's resolution was accordingly
voted down as in opportune.
Another motion of Mr. Brown's, viz,
that of introducing the referendum
system to this province died at an earlier
stage. In a long speech he advocated
that the system at present in vogue in
municipalities of voting on money bye-
laws, should be extended into tbe provincial field with regard to all subsides
accompanying public franchises, but on
a point of order being taken, Mr. Speaker pointed out that auch a system was
subversive of the constitution, and
though perhaps in accord with representative institutions it was wbolely at
variance with our system of responsible
government.
The assessment act. introduced by Mr.
Turner practically doubles the taxes on
mineral property by imposing a two per
cent rate on the value of all ore mined
in the province, . exempting however a
yield up to five hundred ton from all
quartz mines, and a value of $2,000 from
placer or dredging properties, from tbe
additional one cent of this tax. Against
this Mr. Green urged that the mining
industry already paid 2-5th of the total
revenue raised within tlie province and
if any further imposition would be both
unfair and burdensome.
An amendment to the land act provides for a rebate of 25 per cent upon all
arrears of purchase money due on preemptions, conditional upon payment being made before the end of next year
Hon. Mr. Wells met with many congratulations over this measure.
The opposition was somewhat captious
over the Act levying a five per cent rate
on coal and a nine cent rate on coke
raised or burned throughout the province. Their sneers at Premier Dunsmuir were accompanied by the charge
that he would raise the price to the consumer or else cut the wages of bis men.
An interesting bill is that regarding
the original discovery claim in the Atlin
country. This was located by Fred
Miller and Kenneth McLaren, according
to the North West Territory regulation,
where Pine city now stands. It was
subsequently jumped, and although
Judge Irving decided in Miller's favor
last year so soon as he had left the district the claim-jumpers again disputed
the title to the property. The present
Act is intended to settle this question,
which affects some six claims, vesting it
in Miller and McLaren.
In the amendments  to  the Mineral
Act, Mr. Fulton urges that the orders-
in-council, such as those of March 5th
last which really have the effect of law,
be included in the statutes. He also
advocates the extension of the right to
survey mineral claims to Dominion land
surveyors.
Several important amendments are
being offered to the Mechanic's Lien
Act, which will especially favor the
laborers of outlying districts by doubling
the time, at present 30 days, lor the
filing of their liens, and increasing |the
number of wee.s' wages to be recovered
by tbe lien.
Supplementary estimates were
brought down through the week. These
provided for an inspector of the assessment rolls of the province, and the Government expects that through closer attention and equalization in this matter,
the revenue will be largely increased.
Of the more important items the largest
is a grant of $30,000 to the erection of a
Government bouse at Victoria; $10,000
toward a reformatory for bad boys in
Vancouver; $3,500 in aid of a Normal
school at Vancouver; $6,500 for a road
to Sophie Mountain, Rossland, and
$3,000 for a trail up tbe north fork of
Kettle river. A conditional grant of
$6,000 is made for a trial from the
mouth of Bridge river. Mining commission expenses are fixed at $3,500 and
relief grants of $5,000 and $30,000 re
given to Sandon anr1 New Westminster
because of their fires.
About thirty bills yet remain uncompleted. Amongst these the Grand Forks
and Kettle River Railway bill, which
was revived through the efforts of
Messrs. Green and Garion, is exciting
considerable interest, as a strong lobby
is in progress against its passage. Several anti-Chinese measures are also yet
unfinished. Helmcken's labor bill and
Tatlow's immigration act are amongst
these, but the Government has promised that the former shall be completed.
This bill will cover all railway charters
and takes the place of the objectionable
anti-Chinese clauses which have led to a
disallowance in the past.
Prorogation will probably be reached
by the end of the week.
Mr. Hanmer of Vancouver is registered at tbe Excelsior House.
Gib Ward proprietor of  the ferry  at

FRIDAY, AUG. 81, lyOO.
From the looks of the political matter"
throughout Cans.>'... there is no doubt
but what the Dominion elections will
take place about tbe third week in
October. The conservatives bold \ con
vention at New Westminster tnis week
when it will be knot/' definitely who
the candidates will be. The Liberals
for Yale-Cariboo hold a convention at
Revelbtoke on September 5th for the
purpose of securing a candidate for tb.s
conbtituency.
Speaking of the legislators at Victoria
the N il«ua "\ibune say»: "The most
probably outcome appears to be the
division of the houae upon federal party
lines. As to the desirability of this,
public opinion bus very greatly changed
within the past few weeks. Many who
opposed the introduction of party lines
during tl.e recent contest are now prepared io welcoias it, and the new convert t the innovation may be
tufficientlj strong to bring it about."
In this issue is a communication dealing with the remarks made last week in
connection with the freight rates between Lytton and Lillooet, by the
secretary of the Lillooet and Lytton
Transport Union. The Prospector may
be mistaken regarding the number of
days to make the trip b't it cannot be
denied but that the Lytton road was
built io secure cheaper and quicker
transportation and rates to Lillooet. No
better time :j made than was via Ashcroft and the rates are the same. The
PROsrECTor wishes the union success
and would like to see tbe teamsters get
good rates and if the mercbarts and
others are willing to pay the increased
rate in freight, willingly, so much ihe
better for the teamsters.
It is only necessary for the people to
win seventeen seatB from the Government, outside of Quebec, to reverse the
verdict of 1896. This can easily be done.
The Government which won all but sixteen of the seats in Quebec on the race
cry and the promise of separate schools,
in 1896, cannot realize its hope to thwart
reform by a heavy Quebec vote. As a
matter of fact, it stands to lose in Quebec, for the old Conservative counties,
which were carried away by the shout
raised at the last election, have returned
to their first love. The Laurier Government, deceitful, extravagant, and dishonest as it is, is falling a victim to its
own discarded platform of 1896, and is
bound to go. All that is necessary to
give the country relief is unity among
the friends of good and progressive administration, and a close wat.ti upon the
ballot-box stuffers and corruptionists, for
whom a large campaign fund has already
been collected.—Mail and Empire.
In the estimates is placed an
amount of $500 per annum for a resident
physician at Cadwallader, Bridge River.
Petitons the past few years have been
presented to the government asking for
a subsidy for a physician for West Lillooet district and it was intended for the
headquarters to be in the town of Lillooet, the only settlement in the district
and where the government offices are
located. To secure a physician to reside at Cadwallader, we think it will be
necessary to increase the appropriation
considerably as during the past year on
few occasions has it been necessary
to call a a doctor to that section, whereas at Lillooet, the centre of population,
cases arise at any time where a
doctor is called in. The governmet t
has no doubt been misrepresented in
this matter, and by whom we do not
know aa there is no representative man
%t present at the coast from this section.
No petition or any request for same ever
having been made, it looks queer that
such an important matter as a resident
physician should be taken away from
thiB town, whereby residing in Lillooet
a physician can always be found and is
available to every part of the district on
short notice.
Jeff's Father Knocked Out.
Champion James J. Jeffries' father,
the Rev. Alexis Jeffries, has been refused recognition as a minister of the
gospel by the clergy department of tbe
Central Passenger Association, to whom
he applied for cheap transportation to
his home, Lob Angeles, Oal.
Tiie reverend father of sluggers went
to Chicago to see his younger son, Jack,
knock out Jack Beancholt at Tatters-
all's.
After the mill he went to the association's rooms in theMonadnock building,
and presented his preachers certificate.
Questions were asked and when it was
learr "d Mr. Jeffries had journeyed all
the way to Chicago to see a prize fight,
the officials concluded he was not the
kind of a minister the association accommodates.
Canada's Minerals.
The annual report of the geographical
survey for 1898 has just been isnird. It
shows the grand total mineral production of Canada in 1898 amounted to $38,-
661,010. The production for tbe previous
year was $26,661,430." T»>e value of metallic minerals was $21,705,854, and non-
metallic, $16 655,156, the balance of
$300,000, being the estimated value of
the products unspecified and unreported.   	
A Christian woman recently visited
the widow of an English soldier who fell
in South Africa. But the widow cut her
condolence short by remarking; "O.
mum, do you trouble about 'im? 'E
was a bad 'un. I've got a nice lot of
money from the noosepapers and other
kind friends—enough to keep me comfortable; "O, mum, this 'ere war's

""I Will Rep»y "
"Vengeance is mine! Thus saith the Lord!"
The dving missionary cried.
Hear It, yon vile, bloodthirsty horde.
By whose foul swords a thousand died!
Listen, and tremble at a crime,
Blacker.; than that at Cawnpore's well;
Your China might .have been sublime,
But you .have made it a hell.
Can you not-see that-blackest night
Is banished by accusing day?
After the darkness comes the light!
"Vengeance is mine!   1 will repay!"
The souls beneath the altar stone,
Cried out in torture, "Lord, how long?"
For fiends like you there's moan for moan,
Kor brutal beasts ther's thong for thong
We'll break in twain the cursed sword
Incarnadined with blood to-day;
"Vengeance in mine!   Thus saith ihe lord!"
Ana what the Lord says we obey!
Hear England*' retribution cry—
Those that have slaughtered, they shall die,
Heart of humanity, be still!
Repay we must! Kepay we will!
REMARKS ON SAflPLING.
The prospector who has to sample hi'
own claim and wishes to know the truth,
naturally at-ka bow be is to do it, and
the following remarks are far Ins benefit,
not for the expert—tifeyare only outlim
directions for following a well-beaten
trial—the experts know a great mam
short cuts—but unless one is pretty
familiar with the country, it is safest
and aa quick to stick to the trial.
Tlie two pre-requisites to accurate
sampling are common seme and common fairness, or honesty on tbe part ol
the sampler.
In sampling a lead, if the vein-matter
is such that it will all have to go for
treatment, a section of uniform thickness right across the-wltoks of the face of
the lead Usually possible for a correct
sample. This is not usually possible, so
it should be approximated as closely as
possible. Wherever-it is practicable
make cuts right across the lead—the
bigger and more of them the-better. In
such places as the fa.e yor roof of the
tunnel er the side-of the shaft, several
strips should-be cut out. -Make no selection, take all that comes out of such cut,
taking care that tbe cut is uniform in
depth and width—a thing not easily dune
done if there a great difference between
the friability of theore and.gangue. Ia
extended exposures make the cuts at
regular intervals of Bay. 5; 10 or 20 feet—
the closer the -better—letting them hn
where they may, making no selection.
Take-all that come out of these cute to
a convenient place, break it up aa fine
aa practicable and by-such means as are
available; allow nothing to be added or
taken from sample.
Thoroughly mix- the-broken sample
This ia beat done by the olu and tried
"quartering method," viz.: Select a
smooth, level, clean, 6pot—preferably a
floor or canvas -sheet,; proceed to ' tone
the sample," placing a shovelful of ore
in centre of.floor, and directly on top of
this another shovelful, thus continuing
and forming a "cone.,' Tne rest of the
sample -is then placed, shovelful by
shovelful, on the very apex of the cone,
ao that it distributes ^evenly down all
sides radially. When all the sample is
in the cone, it should be flattened into a
circular pile, -villi height about one-
twelfth its diameter. This is done by
scrapin, the ore from the apex of the
cone radially in all directions. Across
the circular line there should be marked
two tinea at right angles and passing
through the centre of pile, so dividing
the pile into .quarters. Two of these
quarters, opposite to each' other, arc
then removed, and the * pace they occupied carefully awent. • The quantity ot
ore ia now-reduced to half the original.
This operation of goning and quartering
ia continued until the sample ia reduced
to such size that it can be carried to the
assayer. -Any pair '■ of ■ rejected quarters should also be retained as check, or
in case-of mishap to regular sample.
Should the lead being sampled contain
a pay streak which only would be shipped, it is best to sample this pay streak
as if it waa a separate and distinct lead,
careiully notinu the width sampled. It
must be remembered that  the  sample
only represents that portion ot the lead
from which it waa taken.
Another and quite as satisfactory a
method is to sample, by method described, all the rock that comes out of tbe
proepect, or sample tbe dump, if there is
ny, by cutting channel's through it, on
t-i e sample principle as in sampling a
ledge, and working down the ore taken
from such channels to a convenient
I ilk.
It must always be borne in mind in
sampling that there is liable to be i
great difference between the lump and
ine ore, and, confequently, a due regard
must be bad to getting the proper proportion of each.
Hand-picked samples are never reliable, and should always be avoided.
As an instance of ihU: The manager ol
a certain mine on the coaet brought into
the government laboratory for close and
accurate check on the smelter, a large
sample of a shipment of ore. Tlie writer
found be had ta .en "a few lumps out of
each sack at random,*' and advised him
to go back, dump every tenth sack, and
"quarter down" aa described, which he
did. Both samples were assayed; the
first gave 14 per cen\ copper, the second
gave 5.6 per cent, copper. The ore went
to the smelter, where it was accurately
sampled by experienced samplers, and
gave within one-tenth per cent, copper
of second result.
Experienced mining men frequently
take hand samples of the particuiiar
classes of ore in a mine, have these assayed, and from these results tbey estimate what grade of ore they are mining.
This may be correctly known, and it ia
wonderful how close to the correct assay
an experienced man can "guess," but it
is uncertain at the best, and dangerous
for experienced persona to attempt to 1 e
guide by- such estimates.—B. G. Mining
Record.     	
The Mat Bet Was Costly.
Kansas City Journal.
A hotel man jn Portland, Me., made a
bet of a hat with a friend and lost. The
loser telephoned to the winner: "Get
just as good a hat aa vou want; in fact,
buy any kind of a iiat that suits you and
have them aehd the bill to me." In a
day or two a bill for $33 from a well
known Congress street milliner for a
woman's hat was received by tbe loser.
Tne winner calmly informed him that
he waa pretty well fixed for hats himself
and so he thought he'd turn the thing
over to his wife. It waa a bat and the
hotel man paid.

They will be absent about three weeks.
MVe notice in the estimates that an
appropriation has been made for
wharves. As the governmen't is
building a road from Seaton lake to
Cadwallader, and as the lake portion of
the road runs through the Inc ian reservation, it is the duty of the government
to construct a wharf at this point, thus
settling beyond dispute the terminus
of the road and shouldering tbe responsibility with the Indian department
and not leaving the oner   of the burden
on private individuals. The expense of
constructing and operating a steamboat
at the present stage of development is
sufficient for private individuals to
undertake without compelling them to
lock horns with the Dominion government over necessary concessions on the
lake shore.

Referring to your remarks in Friday's
issue, concerning the Lillooet transportation, permit me to Bay, that I cannot see
the object of making such mistatements
as are contained therein.
Iu the first place, everyone knows
that freight teams do not, and cannot
make two round trips a week to Lytton
with "ease" or otherwise. Iu the
Becond place, the merchants and others
in town, are not only paying the advanced rates, but are doing so, I believe, willingly, having met our moderate demands, in a fair and liberal way.
