ME FOR  LILLOOET-LILLOOET  FOR   MINE
THE LILLOOET
Vol. 2 No.   9
FRIDAY, JANUARY 10,    1913
$2.00 Per Year
NEW BANK
Lillooet is to have a new
banking institution. The
Union Bank of Canada will
open up a branch here on or
about the 15th of the month
in the building between the
Prospector office and the
Victoria hotel. Mr, A. P.
Hughes will be manager for
the new bank. Mr. Hughes
comes from Passburg, Alts.,
where he was manager of a
branch of the Union Bank.
He expects the teller to a: -
rive in the course of a few
days.
BRIDGE WORK
TO START
Preparations are being-
made to start work on the
bridges along the Bridge
River wagon road. A crew-
will be sent in the first of
the week to take in the portable mill and start getting
out the timbars for the^c
bridges. There is one to go
in across Bridge River at the
mcuth of South Fork, one
across Gunn Creek and one
across Tyaughton Creek.
Work on the government
bridge across Portage Creek
on the Short Portage is progressing rapidly and will be
ready for use in a short time
FOUR TEAMS
PILE UP
Three of Long Brothers
freight teams, the new four-
horse stage and an Indian
rig went over the  grade at
the turn just this side of the
11-mile hill on the Lytton
road. One was severely
shook up, but not seriously
injured. The stage went
over the grade, landing in a
clump of small pines. The
stage was pulled back on
the road and able to continue
its journey after a short delay.
P. G. E. Construction Work
Going Steadily Alusd
Construction work on the
Pacific Great Eastern, which
has been in progress along
Seton and Anderson lakes
for the past three months,
is being pushed steadily
ahead and along the former
lake several miles of grade
have already been completed. On Anderson lake
the construction of camps is
going ahead as rapidly as
lumber can be secured and
put on the ground. Headquarters have been established at the Anderson lake end
of the Short Portage and
where a few weeks ago was
a wilderness there is now a
seene of hustle and bustle,
and enough buildings to constitute a small town. Besides this headquarters there
will be two other main
tamps in the lake; cr.e just
above McGillivray creek and
one near the head of the lake
There are at present several
camps of right-of-way contractors and station men distributed along the line, and
between the Short Portage
and McGillvray creek dirt
is being moved on the grade.
There is considerable heavy
rock work along this lake
and it is said that it will be
in the neighborhood of eighteen months before this piece
of work is completed. The
company already have a 32-
foot 18 horse-power gasoline
boat plying between the
camps and the boat-builders
are at present employed in
the construction of a 36-
horse power boat—a duplicate
of the company boat on
Seton lake-for the transportation of men and   supplies.
About eight miles from
the head of Anderson lake
on the Pemberton Portage
another camp is being located.     This contractor has a
piece of work which starts
at a point about four miles
from the head of the lake
and extends for about 13
miles along the Portage. A
force of men are already at
work on this contract building camps and clearing right-
of-way.
At the head of Seton lake
new wharves and warehouses are nearing completion. A wagon bridge is
being built across Portage
Creek near the Anderson
Lake headquarters. Ancs-
pital for the benefit of tl e
men has besn established on
the Short Portage. An extension of the government
telephone line will shortly
be c ustructed from the JV s
sion to the Poriagl headquarters. In fad, all along
the line affairs are rapidly
being put in shape for the
early completion of this
stretch of the railroad.
FEST COLD SNAP
Lillooet is in the grip of
the storm king. The "little
spell of weather*' hit the
town Wednesday evening
and since that time it has
been ''rather chilly." On
Thursday morning it was
12 above but the high north
wind made it extremely disagreeable to be outside.
This morning it registered
four above and the w ind had
abated. From reports Lillooet still .holds its reputation
as the most flavored spot in
this section. It was said to
be nine below at Pavilion on
Thursday morning and at
the 150-mile house it is reported to have been 50 below-
zero all day Thursday.

ES, The Prospector is under a new management.
And that new management
greets you.
We have been standing
back since we gained control
sort of sizing up the wrork
that has been done in this
shop and taking an inventory
of ourselves to see just where
wre can give our readers better service and more value
for their money. Every good
newspaper does that every
so often.
Now, we intend to desert
the old stringer vein that
The Prospector has been
driving away on for the past
year, start a new drift, tap
a new lead and follow it up
with a bright, newsy and up-
to-the-minute country sheet.
Lillooet and district is going rapidly ahead since construction started on the railroad. In the course of a few
years this pari of the province will be one of the many
garden-spots, a resort section
of no mean importance and
will stand near the top in the
mining industry. This is a
certainty. And with this
certainly in view we realize
that we must be up and doing to keep abreast of the
progress and give this
worthy district the pubici ty
that is due it.
We have planned many
changes and improvements.
We will give all the local
news that is worth printing
in a brief and breezy style.
We will have a district
news service that will keep
you in touch with the outlying sections,
We will help boost anything that is for the good
of the district and will help
"knock" the "knockers."
We will give all' the information obtainable about the
many resources that will
make Lillooet's name.
We will spice it all with
good, wholesome fiction now
and then—probably a serial
story run in weekly installments until finished.
AND LISTEN!
The Prospector will have
a political policy. Heretofore it has been non-political
and non-partizan, but from
now on it will uphold the
Conservative party and
government, because the
Conservative party has fram
ed a government that "does
things for the people."
We may have the stingless
honey bee but the political
bee will keep its sting forever.
Just watch Lillooet this
year. She's booked to knock
that old hard-luck 13 gag
to smithereens.
Don't tell all your troubles
to the policemen—remember
The Prospector is hungry for
news.
A workman is known by
his chips-and the poorest
chips are poker chips.
The man who is continually touching his friends will
some day discover that they
feel cold.
—o	
Cash is like champagne—
take the cork out and the
stuff won't keep.
Cheer up! There's another
New Year's coming and
you'll have another chance
to climb on the wagon.

INGRATITUDE
All numbed is my reason,
and frigid my feet! I'm
tired of this season of good
things to eat! I'm tired of
turkey, I've soured upon
goose, my insides are jerky,
my wishbone is loose. I've
gorged upon pudding until I
would die; I'm dodging,
eluding, all manner of pie.
Although I'm a dandy at
punishing grub, I'm tired of
the candy that comes by the
tub; the oysters, the dressing, the ice cream and cake,
all, all are distressing and
give me an ache. Rich grub
sends a shiver through surfeited men; I'm longing for
liver and onions again. My
system is aching and won't
be denied, for fried eggs and
bacon, and spuns on the side.
'Twould make my soul chirrup to fill up once more on
buckwheat and syrup and
saurkraut galore, but that
would be treason of style and
abuse; at this bughouse season its turkey and goose.
Its turkey that's roasted and
goose that is baked, and
things that are toasted and
things that are faked: its
oysters and dressing and
stuffing and jam, and spaghetti wavy, wiih which we
must cram. My nerves all
a-quiver, I sit in my den,
and long for plain liver and
onions again?—Walt Mason.

BIG GAME
THE OLD TIMERS FAREWELL
THIS SEASON
Lillooet District has long
been known to big game
hunters as an excellent
shooting country, and this
season's record has added
fresh laurels to its reputation
There were about 20 parties
left town during the season,
for the Bridge River and
Chilcotin districts, these being the favorite hunting-
grounds because they are
the haunts of the big horn,
the mule deer and the goat,
and the whole section is suitable for travelling by horses
Some splendid bags were
secured End there was
no expressions of dissatisfaction from the returning hunt
ers. Some of the Lrges,
heads thathave betn secured
in this section in years were
brought in. Among these
trophys was a sheep measuring 16 1-2 inches at the 1 a-e
while the length was 37 1-2
inches. A 15-point mule deer
had a spread of 34 inches
and length of beam 29 1-2
nches. Other heads-brought
in gave these measurements
a close run for the records.
The majority of the parties
were composed of old country
sportsmen, with a fair representation from the states.
Local hunters also enjoyed
a good season. One party
composed of Deputy Game
Warden Joe Russell,P. Mays
and Henry Swartz had exceptionally good hunting in
the North Fork section. M;.
Mays secured one of the best
stag heads of the season on
this trip.
Small game was plentiful
and afforded good sport to
those who answered the lure
of the wild during the hunting season just closed.
FINDS PEARL
Albert Brinkman, cook at
the Quick Meal, was for-
tnnate enough to find a pearl
while enjoying a feast of oys
ters the other day. The
pearl is of fairly good shape
and is about the size of a pea
Mr. Brinkman intends to
send it to a New York firm
to have it mounted.
Divine services will be
held by the Rev. D. Griffith
in St. Mary's church next
Sunday, the 12thof January.
Early communion at 8 a. m.
Morning service at' II a m.
Evening service at 7:30 p. m.
The ceaseless din of many
hammers, the bustle and stir of
things doing. New buildings
-our old haunts destroyed- old
shacks, each with a history of
its own, ruthlessly torn down
to make room. Sidewalks in
town, where the middle of the
road used to be good enough,
telephone lines along where we
used to wrestle with packs on
our backs new faces crowded
hotels—families moving in.
We are elbowed aside. No
room for us "now. Our day is
done, The man whob'a 5 i 1 the
trail makes way for the new order of things,
Progress and transportation-
railway— noW that it is here,
what is there left for us? Their
ways are not our ways; no we
haven't made a raise- not likely
to either- the likes of us are not
the ones that make the big money, Perhaps we had hopes years
ago—now it is different—a cease-
lass struggle with the wilds
changes ones views of life—it
doesn't seem to matter very
much though. There are st 11
a few things that money cannot
b.iy-the friendship and trust of
two partners, who have mined
and trapped together. Our faith
in mankind would soon b'8 destroyed were we to stay.
A job you say? No, thank
you, we have work of our own to
do. Out and beyond there is
room for us. Yes, maybe as y< u
say, the lure cf gold—but it is
clean gold. Its as the Great Architect left it—its for us for us
to get. Maybe a grub strike only
maybe the hi ::ky si rikc- -we have
taken chances for twenty yean,
too old and set in our waysto
change. The silent forest—the
evening camp—fire lighting up
the dim cataedral timbered aisles
the serene grandeur of mountain
peak. The cold eternal glaciers-
when you know them as we know
them, then perhaps you may understand what is calling us. So
town and c t -men we arc leaving
—our work here is done —wo are
leaving il for you to finish and
complete. E< eto it that y< u do
yam best and may good luck be
with you.—Haylmore.

THINGS ARE LOCKING lil!
The railroad cam:is are working
Barely time to bite-or sup.
No need for any shirking
hoi-things are looking up,
We've waited long and patient
'And hitler was the cup
Often hungry and short-rationed
But things are lookiug up.
The winser's blast is over.
Spring is here to brace us i p
We'll all soon be in clover
For things are 1< oking up,
Hard times are off the docket
Nothing now can interrupt,
There's a ten-spol in my pccket,
Let's go out and drink her up.

SPORTING NOTES  '
Vancouver came back in the
Coast Hockey league and led
Weslin's by 10 goals to 5. At
times it looked ' as though the
Representatives stood to lose, but
their aggressive tactics after the
first twenty minutes carried them
by and 5,000 highly enthusiastic
Vancouver fans watched their
home team win a brilliant victory.
Amos Russ, the famous baseball player, is under arrest in
Seattle for attempting to kill
his wife.
The Northern baseball leagues
are all busy signing   on  young-
ters and training for   the   coming series will soon start.
Well, McCarthy beat AI Palzer
and all the wise ones fell for it.
McCarty should be the champion
for a long time as he is a very
young man and a good clean boxer. There is serious talk of
matching him with Wells, the English boxer.
