POULTRY FANCIERS
The first banquet of the Lillooet Boosters' club was held on
Saturday evening, and amongst
the many pleasant events that
have occurred in this little burg
from time to time the pleasant
evening spent by the sixteen
jovial spirits who gathered
around the festive board on that
occasion has been voted second
to none. Mr. A. F. Noel and
Mr. C. Copp had charge of the
table decorations which consisted mostly of chicken. At the
close a vote of thanks was voted
to the above named gentlemen
who replied in appropriate terms.
However, during the course of
Mr. Copp's speeeh he hinted that
it might have been through the
generosity of Mr. Frank Brewer
of Vancouver that such an ex-
ellent repast was forthcoming,
so with three hearty cheers for
Mr. Brewer and the singing of
Auld Lyne Syne the meeting dispersed. The catchy songs of Dick
Clarke and clever recitations of
Jimmy Rowbottom added to the
evening's entertainment.
RETURNS TO COAST
After transacting business in
Lillooet for several days A. F.
Noel left for Vancouver Tuesday
morning, by auto. Mr. Noel
stated that there was great interest being taken in Lillooet and
her recourses at the coast cities,
and that the mining -possibilities
in particular are attracting considerable attention.
LEAVE FOR MINES
The gasoline launch "Borden"
with Captain Sandy Duguid in
command, made a trip to the Mission last Monday, taking as passengers C. Copp and Tommy Alford, who are returning to the
mines. Mr. Copp has been on a
short business trip to Victoria in
the interest of the Coronation
mine. Operations on this property will be continued as persistently as possible until spring
when the crew will be enlarged
and development proceeded with
on a larger scale. Tommy Alford is returning to the Wayside
after an extended but pleasant
visit with his many friends in
Lillooet. Tommy, with Joe Shus-
ter and George Gibson are driving the tunnel at the Wayside.
I. F, Collins accompanied by
George McCrea came down from
the North Fork today and report
trails good and travelling easy.
LETTER F ROM TYEE
A letter has been received from
TyeeJimmy whois inOttawa with
three other Lillooet chiefs interviewing the Premier in regard to
their land titles. On January 8th
they secured their interview but
were informed that nothing
could be done until the house had
time to act, so are waiting to receive an answer from that source
Tyee wished all his "tilhcums"
a Happy New Year.
TELEPHONE PETITION
A petition for a telephone service between Lillooet and Lytton
has been strongly supported and
signed by the local residents.
This was brought in on Wednesday afternoon by Alex Lochore,
of Rosebank farm, Lytton road.
He was accompanied by Mrs.
Lochore and on Thursday they
drove out to the lake and Cayoosh
creek visiting their numerous
friends. They returned to the
ranch today. Mr. Lochore reports all stock in that vicinity to
be in excellent condition, and that
there is plenty of hay to carry
them through the winter.
FRESH MEAT
"Larry" Keary, Lillooet's pep
ular butcher, drove in eight read
of fine looking steers last Tuesday
which he will kill for the local
market. They were purchased
at Bryson's ranch, and Jack Lilly
of that place assisted him to
drive the cattle to town. The
boys report the roads as being
very icy and nearly lost one of
the steers at 12-mile as a result.
Jack Lilly returned to the
"Grange" on Wednesday.
MAMALUSE CAYUSE
On Sunday afternoon two children discovered a horse with a
broken leg behind the English
church. The horse, which belonged to an Indian from down
the river, had been tied to the
back fence and had evidently
pulled back and tripping itself
had rolled down the gulch, break
ing it's leg in the descent. It
was mercifully despatched by-
Sandy Duguid. Double Moral:
Don't tie your horses to other
people's fences and don't expect
a dumb brute to stand still all day
in cold winter weather.
E. Bottomley and A. Langdon
left Thursday morning for
Tyaughton creek to look after
mining interests.
DOWN FROM RANCHES      GOOD SHOW PROMISED
Alec Phair and B. Swanson
came in yesterday from their Anderson lake ranches, both of
which are located close to Mc-
Gillvary creek. Alec now has a
most sub tint'al home en tie
north side of McGillvary creek.
Both have been employing therr.-
i selves cleaving land and building
fences. They report weather con
ditions to have been very mild,
and also state that there is hardly any snow along Anderson lake
.()	
CAPTAIN RETURNS
F. H. Kinder of Terrace Hall
arrived Tuesday evoung from
coast points where he has been
on business and pleasure combined. Fred paid a visit to Eel-
ingham to see "Jake" Patterson
one of Lillooet's old time prospectors. He states that Mr. arid
Mrs. Patterson a:s in good health
and doing well, furthermore that
in the early spring "Jake" will
hit the trail for his old camping
grounds and prospect in this vicinity all next season.
NEW QUARTERS
Dave Coughlan and Billy Elliot
are now occupying new quarters
in Coughlan's cottage in the west
end. Two bran new stoves shipped from Vancouver have been
installed so they are fully prepared for all kinds of weather and
intend living in high style. It
is reported that a bean feast will
be given shortly which will undoubtedly be greatly appreciated
by their many friends.
RETURNS H0»
William Durban returned on
Lee Harrison's stage last Saturday from Lytton, after a two
weeks' sojourn in Ashcroft,
where he and Mrs. Durban have
been visiting relatives, Mrs.
Durban is well on the way to recovery and her many friends will
be pleased to learn that she will
be able to return soon. William
reports that things in Ashcroft
are looking well and that the old
Lillooetites who now reside there
are doing well, but but still have
a warm place in their heart for
Lillooet.
On Thursday W. W. Jones
made a record walk for this time
of year when he left Fairhaven
}n the morning and made Lillooet
the same evening, the distance
between the two places being
forty miles.
February fifth is the date set
by Manager Dick Clarke to turn
his eight coontown comedians
loose on the people of Lillooet.
and he is hard at work now making extensive preparations and
drilling the boys in their lines and
songs. He has made arrangements to have H. W. McKenna
of Ashcroft here (n that date.
Mr. McKenna is well known
throughout the Cariboo country
as a singer and comedian with
ability that places him in the
near professional ranks. He and
Dick haVe teamed together on
the boards in the old country
and are said to be a pair hard to
beat as entertainers. Th:- personnel of thejshow is asjjfollows:
Dick Clark, H. W. McKenna,
JoeRu-sll, •■ames Row bottom,
W, Miller, and Teddy Holt with
Bert Phair as interlocutor. Miss
Bak r has kindly consented to
play the piano for the boys and
Arnold Weber will contribute
t.venty minutes of legerdemain
and slight-oi'-hand.
LOCAL HAPPENINGS
Mr. J. Punch of the Pemberton Meadows was a -passenger on
Monday's auto after an extended
visit to coast points. He thorough
!y enjoyed his ti ip but is pleased
to be back again to Lillooet district.
We are pleased to be able to
state that M. R. Eagleson, who
has been suffering for the past
week from a severe attack of ery-
sipilas, is much better and is
now able to be out.
We are' pleased to relate that
oar little friend "Tommy" Duguid is now we'll on the way to
recovers and in a few days he
will be toddling around again as
bright and cheerful as ever.
•lack Logan came down from
the 19-mile ranch on Monday and
left Tuesday morning on the auto
on a visit t i E. .1. Taylor's ranch
Lytton road, returning with Lee
Harrison the same evening. He
returned to the "1!)"   yesterday
Roy Burkholder, accompanied
by A. E. Humphries left Sunday
fr North Fork, where they will
visit at the ranch for some time.
The pool table at the Victoria
has been repaired by A. Brett,
who has put on raw-hide pockets
which are guaranteed to stand
the stongest of strong shots even
when made by the strongest of
strong arms.

FRIDAY,  JANUARY 19,   1912
open for traffic. The Lytton
road is our main trade route,
and the better the route the
better the trade,
It cannot be too strongly
impressed upon the incomirg
prospectors and "others" interesting themselves in the
mining possibilities here that
Lillooet people want absolute
honesty in regard to the
values of the prospects in the
district. The folly of exaggeration and ' 'wildcatting"
has been too often demonstrated in other camps and
right at this time when the
district is just coming into its
own, one or two shady
transactions may mean a set
back that it will take months
or even years of genuine
merit and proved value to
overcome. Lillooet hasproven
that it is worthy of being-
classed as a substantial mining district, and welcomes
those who are coming in to
develop or promote legitimate propositions, but does
not need any of the cheap
little tricks often practiced
by get-rich-quick men to be
of value.
The cry for roads grows
louder and more insistent
every day until the whole
district resounds with ''give
us good roads!"
The Bridge River country
says, "give us a good road
and we will show you the
finest mining camp in B. C."
The Ashcroft folks say,
repair your roads and we will
come to see you in our antos.;*
The Pemberton people say,
"repair the Portage road,
put a boat on Anderson lake,
and we will trade with you."
The drummers say, "cut
off that d- Big Slide and
build a decent road to Lytton."
The settlers up on North
Fork say, "give us a road
and we will supply you with
the finest vegetables that can
be grown in B. C."
A good road has the effect
of shortening the time required for carrying ore, produce or passengers to a shipping point, which is practically the same thing as shortening the distance. A road
that costs a lot of money to
keep in repair is not a good
road. It would be interesting to know how much money
it costs to keep the Big Slide
Cadwallader Creek
Since about the year 1862
placer mining has been conducted on Bridge river and
Cadwallader creek both by
Whites, Indians and Chinamen, but no attention was
paid to quartz until about
1885 when a prospector
named John R. Williams
located the Forty Thieves
group of mineral claims located on the South Fork of
Bridge river. Here nature
had performed a task which
would have taken a large
sum of money to have accomplished as a landslide had exposed the whole of a face of
a cliff disclosing a very large
ledge of free-milling quartz.
No work was done on these
claims for years but in the
year 1897 considerable work
was done in driving tunnels
and getting out ore and in
subsequent years sufficient
work was done to prove their
value and the claims are now
crown granted. The idea of
putting a stamp mill on tl e
properties was considered an
impossibility in those days
but owing to the success of
Mr. Robert Hamilton of tl e
firm of the William Hamilton
Manufacturing Company in
placing a ten stamp mill on
what is now the Coronation
group, seven miles further
up the creek and the stamp
mill on the Lome mines, when
there were only almost impassable trails, we would not
be surprised to learn;hatn w
on completion of the government road more extensive
operating machinery will be
i .stalled on these properties.
To understand this particular section of the country
the public must be informed
that all the rich strikes have
been discovered on the face
of benches which extend
from the the Forty Thieves
to the Coronation group t nd
the Pioneer, a distance of
about ten miles. The benches
are from three to four thousand feet above the South Fork
of Bridge river and Cadwallader creek, these streams
running in their narrow channels sheer below. A difficult
country to prospect for the
reason that there is a large
amount of brush and fallen
timber scattered over the entire country and the whole of
the ledges have been entirely
covered by a gigantic earth
slide from the mountains that
lie two miles back.
In the summer of 1897 Nat
Coughlan and William Young
were prospecting on the
benches above Cadwallader
creek they discovered [some
rich float quartz showing free
gold. After prospecting the
range of mountains at the
back they satisfied themselves that the float never
came from there and they
then determined to sink on
ore of the most likely spots
on the benches and ascertain
if the ledges from which the
quartz had come did not ex-
hist under the accumulated
debris of centuries. They
were entirely successful and
located a ledge which they
traced a considerable distance and they recorded three
claims called the Lome,
Golden King and Marquies:
This group together with the
Woodchuck, Wood Duck and
Telephone mineral claims lying adjacent are now known
as the Lome mines. On these
claims three arrastras were
built and operated for yea:s
with success, but a sma 1
stamp mill which will soon bo
increased in size, was completed in the last two years
and operated successfully.
In the month of August
1897 Nat Goiighlarn and William Young located the Black
bird and Ida   May mineral
claims on the   same  bench
but some two miles from the
Lome.    They sold the Ida
May prospect the day it was
struck for $3500.     At  the
same   time    a    prospector
named Henry Cargile located
the Little Joe mineral claim,
which with other claims form
today the Corona; ion mines.
Messrs. Mackinnon Robertson and Arthur F. Noel succeeded in getting an option
on these properties,  which
they   ultimately   purchased
and they considered it absolutely necessary that a stamp
mill should be placed on the
propei te3.   A stamp mill on
Cadwallader creek had never
eitered into the imagination
of anyone the sheer impossibility of taking   machinery
into this wilderness precluding such an idea.    However,
as the owners of the properties were satisfied that nothing satisfactory could be accomplished   without a mill
they decided to cousult Mr.
Robert Hamilton   of   Vancouver, B.C.,  a firm  which
has gained a  reputation on
this continent second to none
in the manufacture of quartz
mills and other mining mach
nery.

From Pachelqua
William Dickey of Pachelqua
drove into town last Tues'-.jiy and
reports everyone and ever, thing
excellent in that section. The
cattle are doing well and looking
in fine condition. He says that
the principal occupation o' the
people in that section is getting
in the summer's supply of wood,
and that the coyote whicli has
been making ravages on the
chicken coops has fallen before
the trusty rifle of K. C, Brigman.
Otherwise things are quiet.
Building Barn
Charles McGee is hard at work
building a large barn for Alex
Lochore at "Rosebank" Lytton
road. The dimensions will be
34x60 with a roomy hay loft on
top and stables and granary below. When completed this will
be one of the largest barns on
the river.
Mr. and Mrs, Thomas of Sas-
katchwan are staying at ' 'Rose-
bank" ranch and will be employed there during the winter
months.
All the ranchers in the vicinity
of Foster's Bar are employed
these days putting up ice for
their personal use next summer.

the Winter Hen
The hens are out of business
For not an egg they lay;
It seems so blamed provoking
For now's the time hens pay.
In spring they did not do so bad,
But then the price was small;
Now  eggs are  dear, they loaf
around
And just won't lay at all.
