 THE PROSPECTOR
1 •'
.    '
VOL. i NO. 5^1/
LILLOOET,    B. C, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 31, 1913.
$2 PER YEAR
THE OLD-TIME PROSPECTOR.
He is to be met every day,
sometimes pretty rough-looking,
and the men to be found between
Lillooet and Cadwallader Creek
are fairly representative of the
pioneers of interior British Columbia. He is a type of man
settled down to plain, practical
living, after years of contact with
the hard side of life, and who is
totally devoid of cant or affection. Amongst them is a bond
of fellowship, a sort of freemasonry, and a spirit of abandon
and indifference to conventionalities that mark them out distinctively. He has been so often
near the ragged edge of adversity
that the trail thereto presents no
terrors. Apparently they have
as much contempt for each other
as possible, and invariably refer
to each other as "the biggest liar
in Lillooet." His early experience has knocked all sentiment
out of him, and he takes all
things as matter of fact. But
let one of them get hurt, as happened near Lillooet, last week,
and it is then, and then only, that
the miner is seen in his true light.
Whatever may be the old-time
miner's failings—and he is said to
have many —no other class of
workingmen hold together s.o
true.

LOCAL AFFAIRS
A dance at the hatchery—an
ideal place—comes off tonight.
Capt. Cox is in town in connection with the wood stringency.
George Keen, from Anderson
lake, paid us a visit this week.
Beware! The chief of police
was seen in town this week.
Mr. Rowlands left for Pavilion
Wednesday.
Eri Thompson, from the head
of Anderson lake, paid a visit to
town yesterday.
Henry Swartz, Joe Russell and
Herb Taylor returned to town
last evening after a three weeks'
cruise in the mountains.
Mr. Phair, the assessor, is busy
getting after those whose wages
are called salaries.
Mr. Burkholder was in town
Monday, returning to the North
Fork with Dr. Christie Wednesday morning.
The most magnificent view of
Lillooet, the river, and Cayoosh
creek, is to be had from Mr. H.
Murk's bungalow on his preemption above the Indian village.
Mr. Graham, a popular employee of the Excelsior Hotel,
left for Clinton on Wednesday,
having secured a position with
Burns, Jordan & Welch.
Mr. T. R. Reed is again with us,
arriving from Chilcoten yesterday. Tom reports the Chilcoten
country as being on the verge of
a very prosperous era.
All kinds of fresh fruit at the
Dupras carr'v and lemonade parlor. Likewise, the very finest
brands of cigars by the box.
They all come back to Lillooet.
Tommy Alford is the latest arrival. Tom had been down on
the Mexican border, and speaks
well of the climate, but he states
that life there is one hot tamale
just now.
Mr. P. Welch was observed on
the streets of Lillooet yesterday
with a 14 pound steelhead in one
hand and a fishing rod in the
other. He was standing before
a camera man and was looking
very well satisfied with everything in sight.
W. H. Burton, of the Fountain
ranch, was in town this week.
He states that the railroad camps
in his vicinity are creating a
great nwket for the farmer.
Mr. and Mrs. A. F. Noel accompanied him back to the ranch.
Dr. Kilburger, eyesight specialist, representing the Toric Optical
Co., of Vancouver, will be in the
Excelsior Hotel, Lillooet, on the
7th and 8th of November, and
will be pleased to have persons
with defective eyesight to call on
him.
J. H. Kriege, the auto machinist, returned from the coast last
Tuesday. He was accompanied
by his wife. They have taken the
Baldwin cottage for the present.
Lillooet people will be pleased
to learn that Mr. and Mrs. Kriege
have decided to make this town
their future home.
Old-timers will regret to hear
that John Skinner, so well and
favorably known in Lillooet, has
passed over the great divide.
Driving stage from the 150-Mile
House to Riske Creek, Chilcoten,
he had an attack of snow blindness last winter, from which he
never fully recovered. He died
last week at the Winters Hotel,
Vancouver.
From recent information we
learn that Wm. Haylmore has,
through hard work ana persever
ance, developed the "Why Not"
mineral claim into one of the best
looking claims on Cadwallader
creek. The big ledge uncovered
and the high values contained
therein give every encouragement for more and extensive
work being done.
G. Kent, a civil engineer from
Vancouver, has been engaged for
the past ten days on Cayoosh
creek doing some preliminary
work for the Lillooet Light and
Power Company. According to
Mr. Kent, this company will immediately commence work on an
electric plant; he also states that
there is every possibility of the
work being completed before the
end of this year. Great power
can be obtained at the falls, and
the natural facilities are of the
best.
Through the kindness of John
Chism a saddle horse was put up
for raffle last Saturday evening,
the whole proceeds to go towards
the benefit of a man now in the
Lillooet hospital. Chas. Noel
did the collecting, and he had
no difficulty in securing the
snug little sum of $200. A young
lady at the Victoria Hotel held
the lucky number, and, for one
dollar, is now the owner of a
prospective race-horse. The disappointed ticket holders have the
satisfaction of knowing that they
were participants in a worthy
cause.
In the little old town of Lillooet
there are some good mechanics—
carpenters, plumbers, etc., but as
these branches are all of a high-
priced nature, we will let them
do their own advertising. In
this particular instance we have
reference to the village blacksmith. He is almost as poorly
paid as the printer, yet he hammers away without complaint.
A man went into his shop the
other day with the remnant of
what had, at one time, been a
wagon—just a few broken springs
and a dashboard. Pete and his
chum welded them springs so
that they could not be distinguished from new ones, and finished up the whole job in a style
creditable to a much larger shop.
Some pack horses loaded with
stag and sheep horns arrived in
town Tuesday afternoon, being
part of the cavalcade under the
generalship of Frank Gott, who
left here with a big game hunting party about three weeks ago.
Frank has under his guidance
Capt. W. M. J. Martin of the
British army, and Lieut. H. P.
Pilcher of the British navy, so
if he does not have a title of his
own by the time he arrives in
Lillooet, it will be his own fault.
The party seems to have had
great luck in the hunting line,
and have all the trophies allowed
them by law. They will arrive
in Lillooet this evening or tomorrow, having taken a trip
over the Groundhog Mountains,
and are coming out by way of
Bridge river. Mrs. Pilcher accompanies the expedition, and is said
to have stood the cold weather as
well as the men.
Eighty-five per cent, of headaches are the result of eye-strain,
which can be permanently relieved with aid of Toric Optical Co.'s
scientifically fitted glasses. A
specialist will be in the Excelsior
Hotel, Friday and Saturday.Nov.
7th and 8th.  Consult him.
ABOUT RAILROAD MEN.
Mr. McDougall, formerly connected with Griffin & Welch, at
Lytton, is a visitor in Lillooet
this week.
Alex. McQueen went to Ashcroft on Sunday and returned
Wednesday. If you have anything to sell go to Alex.
George Premuz has finished
his contract. He had some rock
work at D. A. Rankin's Camp 2,
just north of the Lillooet bridge.
Mr. J. H. Halpin, who has been
building bridges for Foley, Welch
& Stewart on the Grand Trunk
Pacific, is expected in Lillooet
shortly.
Mr. L. A. Chambreau is in
charge of D. A. Rankin's work
at Camp 1. Mr. Chambreau is
an old timer with Twohy Bros.,
railroad contractors.
Mr. Doran, superintendent for
P. Welch, left on Monday for
Ashcroft on a tour of inspection.
Mr. P. Welch, accompanied by
Mr. Mackay, left for the Fountain
Creek sawmill on Wednesday
morning.
Quite a crowd of railroad laborers have been in town this week,
most of them being station men
from the vicinity of Anderson
lake; some of them appear to be
in good standing, financially.

ern province could, perhaps,
show a greater variety of
merchantable timber, and in
an exhibition this might not
be offset by greater quantity
or value, or large size, or
higher quality. An older
province may show more different preparations from
farm produce, but none can
match the original produce
of British Columbia land. In
fish and minerals the lead of
this province is unquestioned. This is a lesson worth
teaching all over the world.
The Department of Agriculture and the other branches
of the Government may be
commended for their enterprise."

Water Notice.
Everybody knows that British Columbia has long ago
gained a reputation all the
world over as a mining country. It has more than once
hurled out millions from its
rippling creeks and snow-clad
mountains, yet she is still
able to step boldly forth with
out-stretchen arms inviting
men to try their luck in this
vast unprospected region.
Not to the cunning speculators who do their prospecting
around their firesides, contriving and plotting as to
how they can entice or implicate some simple-minded
person into investing his cash
in some unreasonable wildcat scheme, but to the honest
hard worker who is so willing
to tender all his strength and
energies toward one direction—that is prospecting by
digging and searching and
hoping to be successful. This
is the kind of prospector
that we want and who ought
to be encouraged and supported to the uttermost, and
it is he who we have to depend on and look forward to
for the development of a rich
mineral country. Very few
people realize what this term
prospecting implies and many
are perfectly ignorant of its
proper meaning. It is only
the man that has tramped
and labored under a heavy
pack through the rough and
thickly-timbered mountains,
against all kinds of difficulties, that knows the true
definition of the word prospecting.	
Commenting on the recent
victory of British Columbia
at the Winnipeg Land and
Apple Show, the Vancouver
Advertiser says: "The gold
medal won at Winnipeg is a
good trophy to get, because
Ontario borders on Manitoba
and is a fine apple country.
But the medal for natural
resources is more significant.

HO! FOR BRIDGE RIVER.
A little richer is  the ore, as deeper go
the mines,
A little more uncovering, uncovering
new finds;
A little more encouragement all along
the line,
For they are digging gold, as in days of
old, the days of '99.
Then it's Ho! for Bridge River,
Bridge River's good for mine.
Some of the boys have gone to Alaska,
Alaska drear and cold,
Some went to the Telkwa, where the
pans run a million in gold;
Some   went to  Hazleton,   where   the
silver ore is fine.
Some are staying with Bridge River, so
Bridge River's good for mine.
The "Marquis" is  silent,   so  likewise
is the "Lorne,"
Perhaps with "Ida May" to the "Alham-
bra,"   "CosmoDolitans" have gone;
The "Hiram" is bashful,  "Maud S" is
all forlorn;
The "Pioneer is going strong; for the
"Coronation" a new  era has been
born.
Ho! for Bridge River!
Bridge River sees the break of dawn.
The "Jewess" is in  the running, with
the "Why Not" day and night,
Though the "Forty Thieves" are quiet,
"Wayside" is panning out all right;
There is a "Blackbird" singing, singing
like 'tis spring,
For to those who play at "Blackjack"
a fortune it will bring.
Ho! for Bridge River!
Of Bridge  River the   province   soon
will ring.
"Marconi" sends a message, a message
'cross the bay,
To "Shuster" building cabins, a building
every day.
And don't   forget   the  placer,   where
they're "Darning" all the creek.
And cleaning up the  bedrock  and the
boxes once a week.
Ho! for Bridge River!
'Tis the river that you seek.
Some of the old-time crowd have left us,
We sorrowed at their fate;
But 'tis said they staked a quartz claim
When they reached the Golden Gate.
Some may still  be mining  in a totally
different clime.
But it's Ho! for Bridge River!
Bridge River's good for mine.       W.H.
A big shipment of rubbers arrived at Phair's this week, and
your wants in these can be supplied at moderate prices.
The storm that de/astated the
mining town of Nome wiped the
town of Solomon off the map.
Not one building of any sort in
the settlement, which had a
population of over 300, remained
standing after the gale. It is
reported that all the inhabitants
escaped with their lives when
the town was blown away. The
town of Solomon stood on Norton
Sound, forty miles east of Nome,
at the mouth of the Solomon
river. It was the coast terminus
of the Council City and Solomon
River Railway, and a supply
point for the Solomon river and
Casa de Paga mining districts.

REMINISCENCES OF HUNTER JACK.
Although there are a good many
yarns told about "Hunter Jack,"
the gold farm man, there is not
the slightest doubt that he was a
man of a most determined and,
possibly,   dangerous   character.
As we mentioned in an article a
short time ago,  Jack was in the
habit of bringing to town a quantity of gold dust.     Some of this,
with the best of his nuggets, he
would dispose of to the late Mr.
Alfred Smith, and some he would
sell at the Chinese stores.   His
visits to these stores   were   so
regular that some of the Chinamen thought it wouM not be a
bad idea to follow Jack to his
diggings, and half a dozen Chinks
with all their necessary mining
paraphernalia balanced on their
sticks, started for Bridge river.
At this particular time Jack was
mining on the South Fork of the
Bridge river, and one can easily
imagine the state of his feelings
when he observed the Celestials
loom in  sight, preparing to become his neighbors by starting a
camp, etc.   Jack immediately interviewed the Chinks and wanted
to know what they expected to |
get by coming on his ground; toj
this they replied they were going |
to mine.     Jack  informed them
King George had given him all
the   land in   the neighborhood;
that it was all his, and that they
had better vamose and return to
Lillooet as quickly as possible.
To this they strongly demurred;
but Jfick produced a Winchester
rifle, and after carefully loading
it in their presence, he advised
them to quit at once, and down
the trail to Lillooet he marched
them.
If Jack had a weakness, it was
for some one else's bacon, and
we remember a very good story
which, by the way, we published
in this paper some 14 years ago.
It was like this: Gilbert Ward
had   a  preemption   at   Sucker
Creek,   not far from the South
Fork, and to his very great satisfaction the Indians who packed
up   his    winter   supplies   also
brought him a very nice load of
excellent bacon—about 98 pounds.
The appearance of this bacon,
hanging from the rafters of his
woodshed, gave Gib considerable
satisfaction and pleasure; but, to
his dismay, the day after he had
hung it up it had all disappeared.
There happened to be a J. P. on
Cadwallader Creek at the time,
and Mr.  Ward lost no time in
sending up a special messenger
to him, imploring his immediate
assistance.     This -J. P. duly appeared at Sucker Creek and held
an informal court in the Sucker
Creek bar-room; after having received a full account of the robbery,  without the slightest sign
of suspicion against anyone, the
J.   P.   suggested   that   Hunter
Jack should be sent for.   Jack
appeared with a most impenetrable face and enquired why he
had been sent for.    He was told
that Gib Ward had lost his bacon.
He didn't know Ward had any
bacon. "Yes, he had; 100 pounds
packed in two days ago."    "All
gone?" says Jack.    "Yes, every
bit of it; rind and all," replied
the Court.    "Hog that man who
took   bacon,"   says   Jack,   and
casually remarked that certain
conditions    and    circumstances
pointed a very firm finger of suspicion against the J. P. himself.
However,   Jack   was informed
that if the bacon was replaced
there  would   be  no   questions
asked; but, if the bacon was not
forthcoming   by   the  following
morning "hiyu" policemen would
come from Lillooet.   The following morning the whole  of the
bacon, with the exception of two
pounds, was hanging up again in
Gib Ward's wood shed.

LILLOOET ROADS AND BRIDGES.
As the season is drawing to a
close and most of the road construction gangs are on the point
of breaking camp, we have gathered a few notes relative to their
summer's work.
The upper Bridge river road
was extended up to the Pioneer
mine this year; so there is now
an excellent road to the mines.
The road down on the west
side of Fraser river, between
Cayoosh creek bridge and Texas
creek was considerably improved;
ranchers can now take their
wagons over on to the Texas
creek flats.
The road towards North Fork
is completed up to the bridge at
the mouth of Bridge river. We
understand that this road is to be
pushed through to North Fork
next year.
A good trail has been built from
Anderson lake to the top of McGillivray creek mountain. This
trail will be connected on to the
upper Bridge river road next
year.
More trails are needed up the
main Bridge river; a trail is also
needed up the South Fork, and
should extend on through and
join the wagon road on upper
Pemberton Meadows. These trails
would open up a lot of new mining and timber country. A good
trail is needed up to the new
mines in the White-Bell and
Taylor-Shuster basins.
A first-class bridge was built
over Bridge river at the mouth
of South Fork.
Gunn creek and Tyauchton
creek bridges were strengthened
and new plank floors put on them.
A new bridge is needed at the
mouth of Bridge river. We hope
this bridge will be built this winter. It is needed to connect up
the North Fork road, and we are
informed that explorations are
being made and estimates prepared for a wagon-road up the
west side of the Fraser. If this
road is built to connect on to the
Empire Valley road, Lillooet will
be the starting point of the big
automobile route to tap the northern parts of B. C. We hope to
see it built.
