 THE PROSPECTOR
VOL. 4, NO. 4
LILLOOET, B. C, FRIDAT, NOVEMBER 20, 1914.
$2 PER YEAR
General  News  of Lillooet
District
Mrs. Eagan, left this week for
a tour of the coast cities.
Dr. Nevvcornbe of the P.G.E.
was in town yesterday.
Mr. Casper Phair, local government agent, is on a visit to
Ashcroft these days,
Do not forget the Court of Revision. For full particulars see
page four.
Mr. 0. J. Sanger, Forest assistant, returned to town the latter part of last week, after a
stay of six month in the Chilcotin
country.
Mr. Hopkins, manager of the
local branch of the Inland Transportation Company, left this
week for Vancouver. He in en
route for England, on an extended vacation.
News was brought to town this
week that the Chilcotin Indians
at Churn Creek are shooting the
ewes in that vicinity. A stop
should be put to this before the
frame is entirely wiped out.
The Dickey Bros, returned on
Sunday from the round up at
High Bar. They brought with
them about 175 head of cattle, to
be wintered at the Texas Creek
Ranche. A record round up and
trip was made.
Mr. G. H. Harris of Chicago,
arrived in town from his hunting
trip. The party was in the hills
for twenty-six days, they obtained a fine specimen of a Ram, a
stag, and sundry other game.
Wm. G. Manson was the guide,
assisted by two Indians.
Mr. B. M. Downton, B.C. Surveyor, who has beeen surveying
in the Clinton division of the
Lillooet district during the past
summer, returned to town this
week. He was accompanied by
Messrs Barraciough, Forrester,
Pringle, and Bigg. Mr. Down-
ton left for Victoria yesterday
afternoon.
A much needed improvement is
being made in town by the extension of the side-walk, from
the residence of Mr. S. Gibbs to
the Hospital, and from the residence of Magistrate Saul to .the
Methodist church. Mr. Wm. G.
Duguid is in charge of the work.
Now that side walks are being
extended, why not put one to the
Church of England gate, also
have one laid from the church
to Mr. Craig's residence, and by
so doing have a good side walk
from one end of the town to the
other.
Canada's western province is
keeping; to the fore in the matter
of sanitary measures is evidenced
by the fact that the Pro/incial
Health Department has despatched inspectors to the new settlements, mining, logging and construction camps, where there is
a lack of sanitary conveniences.
Too often very little care is given
to cleanliness and health precautions in these temporary establishments, and it is with a view to
a thorough investigation of their
condition that the present inspection is being made. Reports so
far received show very satisfactory results of thf government's
watchfullntss. - Conservation of
life.
War Gleanings
London— An official statement
issued by the press bureau says:
"The third division was subjected on the 17th to heavy artillery and infantry attack, the
brunt falling on two battalions.
Both were shelled from their
trenches, which were recyvered
by a counter-attack. The enemy
was driven back 500 yards. The
attack on the second division was
asls repulsed."
Petrograd, Official — On the
morning#of November 18 a German squadron consisting of two
cruisers, ten torpedo boats and
several other steamers appeared
before Libau. The Germans bombarded the city and harbour,
setting fire to several buildings.
Early the same day the Russian Black Sea fleet, which has
been cruising off Freibixond,
steamed close to town and bombarded harbor and barracks, set
fire to buildings along the coast.
No Turkish ships were sighted
off the coasts.
London—British fleet bombarded Knocke and Seebruge, Belgium, using the Bruges ship as a
base. German military trains
were wrecked by the shells from
the ships. Five cars with soldiers
were struck and caught fire.
Much damage also was done to
German stores and supplies.
Smyrna— Turkish forts fired
three shells on U.S. launch Tennessee when Captain had visited
the officials. Tennessee left Turkish waters at request of Ambassador, urged by the Turkish Officials. The matter is being investigated.
London — Reports from the
front say that the recent days
fighting is entirely favorable to
the Allies. Retreat of the enemy
is only a matter of time.
Floods separate the armies between Nieuport and Dixmude.
The German army has failed
in its main attack although Prussian guards corps retained its
reputation for courage and contempt for death.
Rome — Japanese ambassador
left Constantinople last night.
Leaving was probably due to instructions from Tokio rather than
as a result of representations by
the Porte.
Rome — Arabian Mussulman
Leader Abdul Kaiser rebelled and
dispersed Turks in the region of
Maku. Kurdish Chief Sinko sustained an engagement against
the Turks for several days. Ultimately with assistance of Russians the enemy was dispersed.
London. — Nothing fresh regarding the battle on Allies left
wing.
The Princess Patricias have
left Bustard camp, Salisbury
Plain, and have gone to Winchester, in order to be nearer to
Southampton.
LILLOOET
Thou little Town on Fraser Strand
Bathing in sunlight's sea,
Rough beauty lies on every hand
A stranger e'r will see.
Thou know the past of younger days
When B.C. was achild,
When roughshod men did have their
ways
When temper did run wild.
When Bigby weild his rod supreme
His foe was reaching far,
Then Lillooet did have the cream
Of manhood above par.
The pioneers of by bygone past
Their number getting small,
V/e hope us left will make no haste
To answer the last call.
Old Lillooet thou art not great
Of wealth and earthly fame
But thou art healthy sound and neat,
And as of old, still game.

Story of the Sinking of The
Audacious is Denied
Anderson Lake Boat
The Anderson Lake boat will
run as follows until further notice
Leaves head of Anderson Lake
8 a.m. Wednesday and Saturday
mornings, connecting with Seton
Lake boat. A. C. PHAIR,
Vancouver Province Nov. 18—
Dr. J. C. H. Beaumont, surgeon
on the White Star liner Olympic,
denies absolutely that the British
super - Dreadnought Audacious
was sunk in Lough Swilly on Oct
28. The New York Sunday Times
of November 17 publishes the
following story on its frontpage.
The Times, it might be stated,
has the reputation of being the
most careful and reliable newspaper in New York.   It says:
"Dr. Beaumont of the White
]Star liner Baltic, which arrhed
here from Liverpool on Friday
night, and who was surgeon on
the steamship Olympic on her
last voyage from New York,
vvhen she put into Lough Swilly,
said yesterday that there was absolutely no truth in the report
that the crew of the battleship
Audacious had been rescued by
the Olympic.
"In an interview with a Times
reporter in the Officers' Club on
the White Star piers, Dr. Beaumont said:
"The first news I received of
the sinking of the Audacious was
in one of the evening papers today, and I was astonished to read
that the passengers of the Olym-
yic had witnessed the blowing up
of the battleship and the rescue
of her crew by lifeboats from our
ship. I can not say whether the
Audacious was blown up by a
mine or torpedoed off the coast
of Ireland, but I can vouch for a
fact that neither the passengers
nor crew of the Olympic saw or
heard of such a disaster."
After considerable details, the
report goes on to say:
"It was pointed out by one of
the White Star officers that all
reports agreed that the sinking
of the battleship and the rescue
by the crew of the Olympic occurred on the morning oj October
27, close to the Irish coast. The
liner averages 22-knots on her
eastward voyage in fine weather,
but she was delayed by fog off
banks of Newfoundland, and did
not sight the Irish coast until
late on the afternoon of October
28. This would indicate that on
the morning of the alleged rescue
of the battleship's crew the
Olympic was at least 600 miles
away from the place where the
disaster is reported to have occurred."
German   Paper  Suspended
For Speaking Frankly
Leaders in Very Nasty Situation
Amsterdam—The pan-German-
ist Post has been suspended for
a violent article attacking the
Austrians for incapacity in the
field. It is owing to them, it
asserted, that the entire plan of
campaign would have to be changed, that Cracow must be abandoned and that both army leaders and diplomats find themselves
in a very nasty situation. The
paper proceeded to declare that
much of the blame for all this
unsatisfactory state of affairs
must be laid at the door of the
imperial chancellor, whose blundering policy had dragged Germany into a war in which, now,
there was no telling how she
would emerge.
London, Ont.-Leiu-Col. Wigle,
officer commanding the 18th
battalion, of the Canadian expeditionary force, decreed that
all his men hereafter, must not
shave their upper lips.
The commanding officer said
his decree was based solely upon
the scientific principle that the
scraping of the upper lip affect
the nerves which influence the
eyes.—We expect there will be
more "Wiggles" in the 18th now.
Social Evenings
An invitation card party was
given last Friday evening at the
home of Mrs. Bridge, by Mes-
dames Bridge and Bell. Whist
was indulged in till about twelve
o'clock, when refreshments of a
very delicious nature were served.
After refresements, songs and
instrumental music, by several of
the talented party, were ably
rendered. The guests departed
for their homes, after having
spent a very enjoyable evening.
A farewell dance was given
this week in the Santini Hall.
The occasion being, the departure of Mr. Hopkins, manager of
the Inland Transportation Company, on. an extended visit to
England. There was about forty persons present, and a real
good time was spent by all. The
good wishes of all is expressed
for a safe, and pleasant trip.
AN OPEN LETTER
Lynching is too good for the
person or persons, who start such
rumors as the sinking of the
Audacious.
Dear Young Lady:-May we suggest
that you should write that Love-Letter
on "Swisslin'" or "Holland" Paper
(envelopes to match), using a good
Fountain Pen filled with Underwood
Ink, and. if sealed, using Violet or other colored Wax showing a heart transfixed by Cupids Arrow, or other device.
If through a lapsus pennae a wrong
word gets in, we have Eraseis that remove ink. But best not erase anything.
Just let your heart speak and all will be
well. An outhority on love-letters says
we should not know beforehand what
we are going to say, and should not remember afterwards what we did say.
Throw in plenty of sweet phrases and
pet names. He's only a big Boy, and
likes lots of sugar-plums in bis cake.
The effective love-letter is a riot of
tender incoherencices. When Molly told
Paddy that "Love had driven her silly,"
it made Paddy as crazy as she was,
The reference to Mike may have helped,
but there's danger in that strategy.
We have a nice lot of Stationery,
just arrived, which we'd like to show
you.
Yours Respectfully,
Glarke & Co.

Annual Report of Lillooet
Mining Division
(Report of Minister of Mines)
South Fork of Bridge River
Marconi Group. — Near
the mouth of Sucker creek,
which flows into the main
Bridge river from the east
at a point about two miles
down that river from the
mouth of the South fork,
and one mile below the Government bridge across Bridge
river, is situated this camp,
which I visited about noon
on August 20. It is occupied
by Messrs Ferguson and
Walker, ihe two pioneer
prospectors and operators
who have acquired the Marconi group of seven mineral
claims.
These are situated nearly
west from Cadwallader creek
camp, on an extension of the;
line of strike of the east and
west series of (martz veins!
that are now being worked,
but, as the claims are located
in the valley and there are
no natural rock-exposures,
the surface being covered
from 25 to 50 feet deep by
an overburden of material
designated by Chas. Camsell,
of the Dominion Geological
Survey, as "volcanic ash,"
deep cuts by ground-sluicing
had to be made to expose
bed-rock.
At the time of my visit a
crosscut trench 250 feet in
length, from 25 to 45 feet in
depth, with an average width
of between 40 and 50 feet,
had been made by hydrau-
licking, for which purpose
the water from Sucker creek
was being used. The idea of
these operators is to expose
bed-rock and locate the line
of contact between the sedimentary rocks prevailing a-
long the Bridge river valley
and the igneous rock in which
the gold-baaring quartz veins
occur, but to the time of my
visit they had not succeeded
i'i this, but had exposed three
narrow, parallel quartz veins
in the igneous rocks, with
their lines of strike north-

The bed-rock is overlain by
about 3 feet of cemented
gravel and sand, so hard
that it has to be blasted.
This cement Mr. Ferguson
informed me, carries some
gold in quite coarse heavy
particles, but not sufficient
for profitable operations in
hydraulic mining.
One portion of the plant
in use here deserves special
mention because of the ingenuity exhibited in its construction ; this is a home-made
self-dumping boulder - slide
derrick operated by a wooden
Pelton water-whee) encased
I in canvas; the slide-derrick
|is built on a long trestle,
'over which a fiat-bottomed
I wooden car, on which the
I boulders are loaded, is hauled
I by a rope connected with the
I shaft of the water-wheel.
This trestle can be extended
at will, and the success of the
machinery is attested to by
the immense masses of boulders piled up at the various
points that have been used
for dumping terminals.
