THE PROSPECTOR

LILLOOET,   B. C, FRIDAY,  MARCH 13, 1914.
$2 PER YEAR
LOCAL ITEMS.
^ j
Dr. Jones, of Victoria, was a
visitor to his Lillooet ranch this
week.
Auto men are getting busy,
now that the roads are once
more in good condition.
After several weeks' absence
on the coast, Mr. J. Russell, game
warden, is again back on the job.
Wm. Manson left for Vancouver
during the early part of this
week.
Herb Taylor has just finished
an addition to his Lillooet residence.
Wm. Elliott is back from the
North Fork, looking stout and
hearty.
Mrs. A. W. A. Phair, son and
nurse, arrived home on Wednesday.
Charley Holbrook shot a very
large cougar on the North Fork
the other day.
Chas. Bowden spent a few days
in Lillooet this week. With a
stock of supplies he returned to
Seaton Lake on Wednesday.
Chief Constable Aiken will remove his family to Clinton this
week. In future Clinton will be
his headquarters.
Mr. T. P. Reed arrived from
the coast on Wednesday, after a
short campaign with old friends
at the capital.
Mrs. M.R. Eagleson is at present undergoing nfeiical attendance at St. Paul's Hospital, Vancouver.
R. A. Nicholson, contractor on
the east end of the P.G.E., paid
Lillooet a round-up visit this
week.
Chief Constable Aiken arrived
in town, from the dry belt, on
Wednesday night. He reports
everything in fine shape along
the railroad line.
Government road gangs are
commencing to muster, and a few
men are already at work on the
Lytton road putting it in shape
after the recent soft weather.
With everything assured for
the completion of a wagon road
to the North Fork this summer,
the ranchers in that vicinity are
putting on an extra spurt, fencing
and clearing land.
A great many prospectors will
be in the hills before the end of
this month. The news of the
late strike on the Broken Hill
mine has caused quite a stir in
mining affairs.
A partial eclipse of the moon
was brought to the attention of
a few visitors from the "dry"
belt on Wednesday evening, with
the result that they headed for
Clinton again the following day,
fearing that they would come to
grief by a longer stay.
Wm. Duguid returned from the
coast on Tuesday, where he has
been for several weeks during his
wife's severe illness. Although
still very weak, the people of
Lillooet will be pleased to learn
that Mrs. Duguid is practically
out of danger.
In connection with the announcement of the new rates for
parcel post the public should remember that for the first three
months the limit is six pounds.
On May 10 the limit will be raised
to eleven pounds.
THE BROKEN HILL MINE
PROVES EXCEEDINGLY RICH
Assays of the Ore Show Values of
Over Sixty-four Dollars.
COMPANY WILL ERECT LARGE PLANT AT ONCE
One of the Greatest Mines  Ever Discovered  in   the
Rich Province of British Columbia.
Last week John Hunt, superintendent of the Broken
Hill mine, on Bridge river, proceeded to the coast with a
large number of ore samples from the recent development
work on the property, and the result of the assays is far
is excess of anything ever anticipated by the owners. In
a telegram to the Prospector, on Wednesday, Mr. Hunt
states that the average assays are in the neighborhood of
sixty-four dollars, principally in gold. This is indeed good
news for Lillooet. A prospect of sixty-four dollars, and
even more, has been obtained from other properties in the
Bridge river district, but they were of a free-milJing quartz
nature, the veins being small. This BroKen Hill property
is simply a quarry of almost 90 feet in width. According
to the reports of the engineers who visited the mine last
year, five dollar ore would make the Broken Hill a paying
proposition, but they were unanimous in the opinion that
depth would show much greater values. This nas turned
out to be true, but greatly in excess of anticipations. The
company have announced the intention of immediately
installing a large reduction plant. The operation of the
Broken Hill mine will certainly be a great factor in the
business prosperity of Lillooet; it will likewise be the
means of working other properties now dormant. The
successful development of the Broken Hill property is undoubtedly the best bit of mining news that Lillooet men
have listened to for many years.
OUR VISITORS.
During the past week Lillooet
was visited by Mr. Joseph Travers
and party, prominent business
men of New Westminster, who
were looking into the inducements
of what the Lillooet district held
out as a stock-raising center. Mr.
Travers was well pleased with
the information he received in
this respect, but as the snow is
still lying on a considerable portion of the district, decided to
make a more thorough investigation a little later, when conditions
are more favorable. Whilst in
Lillooet, Mr. Travers' attention
was drawn to the bright prospects held out on Bridge river,
by the mining fraternity there,
and as that gentleman has been
in close touch with mining matters during his long sojourn in
British Columbia, was most enthusiastic on the samples shown
him. Mr. Travers is in close
touch wiith capitalists on the
coast, and took with him a large
amount of samples taken from
the Lorne Mine, Spokane Group,
and Taylor Basin. He was most
optimistic in regard to the future
development of this part of the
province, now that transportation
is at our doors.
PARSONAGE FOR LILLOOET.
The sum of $500 having been
promised toward the building of
a residence for the clergyman at
Lillooet, conditional on an equal
sum being contributed here, the
following generous subscriptions
were immediately tendered: A.
W. A. Phair, $250.00; Mrs. J. S.
Bell, $10; B. W. Sutherns, $10;
Samuel Gibbs, $10; W. J. Abercrombie, $10; A. P. Hughes, $10;
A. J. Anderson, $5.
Further donations towards this
worthy purpose will be thankfully
received by Mr. Slocum at the
British North America bank.
There is an extremely dry belt
just now, in the eastern end of
this district. After leaving Lillooet town almost a hundred miles
north is under the ban of prohibition—a serious outlook to some.
It is just possible that the grunt
of a "blind pig" may be heard in
the restricted zone, by those having good ears for that kind of
music, but it will be a sorry day
for the owner of the piggery if
he is caught. With the exception
of two hotel licences in this town,
the P.G.E. railroad is being constructed on an extremely "dry"
basis for over 225 miles.
J. W. Stewart, of the great
contracting firm of Foley, Welch
& Stewart, who are now working
on the grading of the P.G.E. railway, was in Victoria last week in
conference with D'Arcy Tate,
vice-president of the line. Bridge
building and track-laying on the
section north from Squamish is
now in full swing, five hundred
more men being lately added to
the force.
TO RELEASE AN OLD MAN.
There is a petition being circulated round the town which we
hope will be largely signed and
be successful. It is addressed to
the Minister of Justice at Ottawa,
and is for the remission of the
remainder of the sentence of imprisonment on John Scotchman.
Scotchman (an Indian) was well
liked by Lillooet people, and
under great provocation he committed an act for which he was
sentenced to 20 years' imprisonment. The man is old now, and
has only a few more years of life
to expect, and we think it would
be a merciful and gracious act on
the part of the authorities if he
was permitted to have his freedom
and return to his old home at
Lillooet. The petition is largely
signed by old-time residents of
this district-men thoroughly conversant with the circumstances of
the case—is endorsed by the
Indian church, and signed by all
Indians having the authority of
chief in this district.
March came in like a lamb, and
up to the present, fine weather
has prevailed. According to the
traditionary rule, it should go out
in a squall; but Lillooet is a favored spot, and we may expect our
usual balmy weather for the balance of the month. The brotherly
love on exhibition in this district
has, probably, some influence on
the weather conditions.
For the quarter ending Dec. 31,
1873, only $4.96 worth of stamps
were sold in the town of Lillooet. The postmaster's salary
for the three months is charged
at $12.
Railroad men in the vicinity of
Pavilion  spend   many  pleasant
hours listening to Phil Garigan
recount the early days of Lillooet
and interesting reminiscences of
its early inhabitants.     Phil is
only eighty-eight years old, and
says he is as good a man as he
was fifty years ago.  He has lived
over half a century between Lillooet and Clinton,  and has had
occasion to meet and compelled
to listen to some tremendous liars
traveling between those towns,
especially those going north, and
it is wonderful that, under these
circumstances, the old gentleman
has been able to sustain his present truthful reputation, much less
the robust appearance  he now
displays.
—♦—
Farmers are everywhere these
days. Along Seaton and Anderson lakes every little cove, beach
or bench is occupied by a rancher
of some kind. And there are
some kinds. One of the latter
came into this office last week
and abused us because the Prospector neglected to note the extensive improvements he was
making on his farm. Upon inquiry we find that this gentleman
has a job in standing upright on
his ranch, and only a week ago
fell off his property altogether,'
and into Seaton lake, in an attempt to get a little wood for
himself, and was strictly sober
when the accident happened.
The Seaton Lake school children
were nicely entertained by their
teacher, Mrs. Mclnry, and Mrs.
L. Ledgerwood, last Friday, the
festivities taking place at the
latter's pretty little home. Refreshments and games occupied
the attention of eighteen happy
children until late in the afternoon,
»—
Since the line of demarcation
has been firmly established by the
provincial authorities, defining
the dry and wet belts in Lillooet
district, it is astonishing to note
the rapidly increasing population
of this town. THE PROSPECTOR

ROYALTIES ON TIMBER.
Widespread interest has been
shown in the timber royalty bill
introduced by the Hon. Wm. R.
Ross, Minister of Lands. Newspapers all over the American continent and many in the United
Kingdom published despatches in
which a feature was made of the
profit-sharing principle in handling public timber resources. The
New York Times, in a lengthy
editorial under the caption of
"Profits for Governments," complimented the Hon. Mr. Ross on
the idea. The New York paper
said:
"The British Minister of Lands
last week introduced a bill providing for a government regulation of prices on lumber from the
public property, and fixing the
royalties to be paid by those working the timber lands in proportion
to the prices. The lumbermen
are said to approve the idea, and
the government expects eventually to get $2,500,000 annually,
while retaining tbe land from
which the timber is taken. It is
singular that the idea of associating prices and profits from the
proceeds of public resources has
been so tardy in arriving. Hitherto the problem has been attacked from the point of reducing the
excess of profits of such exploitation by taxation. That only makes
the product more costly to the
exploiter. It is not too late to
profit from the example of Canada."
The magnificent forest areas of
this province is a heritage the
people ought to watch over most
carefully. Few provinces or states
are so bountifully endowed.   The
timber should  be regarded, as
far as practicable, as a trust to
be administered for the general
benefit, not mainly as affording
opportunity  for  privileged exploitation. Because, perhaps, the
timber resources of the continent
have been thought inexhaustible
—a  sadly  mistaken view—this
principle has never properly imbedded itself, as a matter of cardinal policy, in the public mind,
either in the United  States or
Canada.   The output from public
or Crown lands under lease has
been taxed by the several governments, but without any restriction upon the price charged. The
consequence has been naturally,
that the users of lumber have had
to pay the government taxes, and
there has been no regulation of
the extent to which the public,
the owner of the leased limits,
could  be bled for its own property.  The government of this
province, which has been foremost in forestry regulation, has
taken a stand on this matter deserving of the warmest commendation.     It is  readjusting the
terms of   royalty  upon  which
leases are granted.    In making
substantial increases in the amounts due to the government it is
also undertaking to regulate the
lumber prices.   The scheme covers eight periods of five years
each,  the royalties being on a
sliding scale.   The principle upon
which the measure, which has
been laid before the legislature by
the Minister of Lands is based, is
that of profit-sharing by the government in the exploitation of the
timber. It proposes to obtain for
the provincial treasury part of
the regulated value of the timber
without permitting the amount
thus diverted from the pockets
of the timbermen to be taken
out of the lumber consumers.
That is the true basis of forest
administration.
At the University of Washington the new bill introduced by
Hon. W. R. Ross was the subject
of an address to the students in
the forestry class by Mr. Overton
W. Price, former associate forester of the United States under
Gifford Pinchot. The lecturer
said:
"Hon. William Ross, British
Columbia's Minister of Lands,
has insured by his royalty measure that the people of British
Columbia get a fair share of the
increasing value of their own
timber, now held under lease by
lumbermen. He has given a new
and very wholesome stability to
the lumber industry, and he has
taken a step which makes straight
toward practical forestry on all
public timber lands. I expect to
see great results from Mr. Ross's
royalty bill-large public revenues
from public timber—taken fairly
as the people's share of the increase on lumber prices; practical
forest conservation in the woods
which will issue a second crop of
timber, and the wider application
by the British Columbia Government of the profit-sharing principles in other great public resources in public ownership. I
expect to see this royalty measure
result in a much more rapid recovery from financial depression
in the lumber industry in British
Columbia than would otherwise
have taken place."

BRIDGE RIVER.
At the annual meeting of the
Bridge River Lieologist Associ-
ciation, held in Hunter Jack's old
cabin, on the evening after the
first thaw of 1914, it was duly
proposed, seconded, and unanimously carried, that the word
"not" be omitted from at least
three out of the ten commandments. There was a fair representation of the Ancient and Honorable J. J. Club of Lillooet, and
a very entertaining evening was
enjoyed by all. Towards daylight
someone disturbed the slumbers
with the following:
Truth is hard,  and rusty life's a heavy
job,
Hear the spring and  axles scrape and
squeak and sob;
Make the wheels go smoothly  and the
miles slip by—
With an application of the oily lie.
Stop  the  waste  by  friction, ease the
engine's train,
Broken parts  can   never  be replaced
again;
Heed  no   moralizing,   wink  the other
eye,
Lubricate when needed with the oily lie.
Death's foul blow is softened, Fate's
worst wounds are naught—
When the kindly liar anodyne has
brought
First aid for the wounded, someone's
always by—
Ready with a potent, chloroforming lie.
By this time the Association
was thoroughly awake, and mad,
when a former member of the J.
J. Club took a drink, and said:
"Joys, I managed to strike some
rale whisky this time. Coming
up Seaton Lake in the company
of a crowd of empire and railroad
builders who had about twenty
bottles with them, I had wan
drink, an' every time for a week
after that when I blew my nose
it burned a hole in my handkerchief." The meeting promptly
adjourned, to meet again the
first opportunity. J. J.
MORE GAME WARDENS.
Discussing the large expenditures made annually for game
protection and regulation purposes, attorney-general Bowser
last week stated that fourteen
new game wardens would be
placed on duly during the present
year.
The darkest hour in any man's
career is that wherein he first
fancies there is an easier way of
gaining a dollar than by squarely
earning it.— Horace Greeley.

CLINTON HAPPENINGS.
From our Regular Correspondent.
The warm weather still continues and the streets still sloppy.
Mrs. Wm. George gave a birthday party on Friday in honor of
Ralph, who had successfully
spanned twelve months of one
year.
Mrs. More entertained a number of young friends on Monday,
in honor of Master Wallace's
birthday. Miss McDonald assisted.
The school children have now
entered on to their summer
schedule, going in at 9 and coming out at 3:30.
Geo. Mundorf is now the agent
and hostler for the Inland Express Company at Clinton.
The Inland Express Company
has taken over the old stand of
the B. C. Express Company, next
door to the Palace Hotel. The
"Pathfinders" are now happy, as
they consider they have their
own back agaip.
Mrs. M. Cunningham and family
of the 74-Mile House, is visiting
Mrs. Barton at Clinton.
Loads of fine-looking ice are
being hauled from Kelly Lake for
the hotels.
Mrs. Kerr, of 57-Mile House,
left on Monday for Chilliwack, to
attend the funeral of her sister
Mrs. R. J. Muirhead. Mrs. Muir-
head's death was very sudden,
and came as a great shock to her
sister, as she received a letter
from her the very day the news
arrived of her death.
"The Patricia Cafe" is now
open, and has been for about a
week. The proprietors, not wishing to celebrate the occasion all
to themselves, invited Clinton
society at large, at the rate of
fifty cents "per head," to enjoy
themselves. Oyster soup, turkey,
chicken, and many such things
were indulged in to the fullest
extent, and Clinton turned out
and enjoyed herself. Several of
the boys who were lucky enough
to be present, showed an unusually circular appearance after
the entertainment. After the
supper came a dance, which was
also enjoyed by many.
It is rumored that the B. C.
Express Company will shortly
move its headquarters to Fort
George and operate stages and
autos into the northern country.
The B.X. still intend running
their passenger cars from Ashcroft and to keep on connections
with their two steamers on the
Fraser river.
Provincial constable Aiken, of
Lillooet, arrived in Clinton last
week. Mr. Aiken is at present
acting chief constable of Lillooet
district.
So Clinton is once more "dry."
The town will yet become famous
if she keeps at it. It will soon
become the usual thing for travelers to enquire whether Clinton is
having one of her "dry spells" or
one of her "wet spells."
On Sunday morning, March 9,
four babies were baptised at the
Clinton Church by the Rev. H.W.
Elliott, of Quesnel. Mr. and Mrs.
Lunn's little boy, Mr. and Mrs.
C. Dougherty's little girl, and
Mr. and Mrs. Chas Pollard's two
little boys.
Charlie Kang is keeping up
with the times by putting a large
window in the front of his store.
A change in the system of delivering mails in Northern British
Columbia was inaugurated on
the first of this month, it being
believed that all the details of the
reorganization can be worked out
by the postoffice department.
This will give a tri-weekly service
in certain parts, as against a biweekly service. The service has
been made possible by the rapid
advances in the construction of
the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway,
and will be in addition to the delivery to the upper country now
in force by automobile via the
old Ashcroft trail. Mails will go
in from Edmonton over the G. T.
P. three times a week to Fort
George, South Fort George, Quesnel, Cottonwood, Vanwinkle and
Barkerville, the collections being
from all points east of Calgary.
From coast points mail will go in
twice a week from Prince Rupert
to Fort Fraser, Stella, Endaco,
Frasertown, Nechaco, Mapes
and Chilco. This will all be in
addition to the semi-weekly service now given by automobile
from Ashcroft up Cariboo road.
The settlement in the north country is proceeding at such a rapid
rate that the mail is attaining
proportions far greater than the
development had expected, and
with the volume of mail that has
to be handled it has been felt
desirable to utilize the railway as
soon as possible, although it is
not expected that the rail service
would have been available at as
early a date as this.
