Lillooet District Worth Investigating—Has Gold-
Bearing Streams
LOCAL AND GENERAL ITEMS.
There are many creeks not far
from the town of Lillooet where
the ground is worth investigating—Tyauchton creek, Alexandra creek, Cadwallder creek and
the South Fork of Bridge river.
Tyauchton creek has not been
worked for a great number of
years, but lots of gold has been
taken off this stream, especially
at eight mile flat, and some claim
that the ground never has been
thoroughly prospected.
All the ground at the mouth of
the South Fork of Bridge River
has been recorded by the Golden
Dream Mining Company and others, but up stream there is a
high level channel that falls into
the South Fork above the "Why
Not" mineral claim. This channel has been ground sluiced by a
spring raising below the road until it forms gulch digging: while
the water is hardly sufficient to
sluice with, still, by building a
tank with an automatic gate,
flushing, a good deal could be accomplished. Very course gold
has been washed out of this gulch
within the last few years and the
bedrock was not reached. Further up stream there must be
some big diggings, as course gold
up to $32 was taken out on the
Lorne claim some years ago.
Going up Seaton and Anderson
lakes, McGillivary creek is the
best stream for placer, and last
fall one prospector is reported to
have taken out considerable heavy
gold. Above the mouth of Gold
creek some maintain there is
nothing, but it seems to be doubtful whether anyone has tried it
sufficiently to know, but fairly
course gold has been found up
above the Forbes, and it looks as
though it would pay further investigation.
Besides these known creeks
there are numerous other streams
that are gold-bearing, as outside
of the discovery of the late Jack
Tashpola's diggings last fall,
which were only discovered by
him a few years before he died,
there is always the question of
where he got the gold dust he
sold in this town—and he sold a
considerable quantity.—Sun.
The mineral production for the
province from 1852 to 1913 inclusive shows an aggregate value of
$460,137,000. The production of
metals, coal and coke in the Kootenay and Boundary districts of
British Columbia for the year
1913 amounted to the grand total
of $20,629,315.
H. P. Goldstraw, with Mr.

little assistance from a few of
the congregation of the church
has been devoted to the purchase
of new hangings for the altar,
revodos, lectern etc., and it would
be well if the children of the
Sunday school who have mainly
been the means of enabling this

next service to be held in the
Church of England, and see what
has been accomplished through
their efforts.
North Fork Road
The new wagon road from the

eight feet wide, and three miles
out of the fifteen are now complete.
There has been much agitation
and general kicking about this
road, therefore, we are glad to
hear the settlers in the district
express their appreciation of the
good work being done, and echo
with them the hope that, the government will see fit to complete
the road this fall. There is quite
a number of settlers, besides good
mining prospects in this district
at the present time.
Glad to see Bonner back again.

To Save Old St. Paul's
London, May 18—The grouting
experiments which have been in
progress at the old postoffice site,
with a view to determining the
foundations of St. Paul's Cathedral by injecting liquid cement
in the subsoil have been successful. A number of borings have
been made, and the liquid cement
has been injected into them by
compressed air. The cement has
permeated the subsoil for a considerable distance round each of
the borings, and not only gravel
and sand, but also clay has been
transformed into a solid concrete
mass. It is probable that the
process will now be applied to
the subsoil under St. Paul's Cathedral.
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, the
famous author, sails from London
for Canada next week. He travels from Momtreal via Grand
Trunk Pacific to Jasper park in
the Rocky Mountains, where he
intends camping out with Col.

met during the Boer war. They
may eventually visit Lillooet.
Twenty Years Each
Three Russians, names unknown, who were captured at
the time of the holdup of the
New Hazleton bank six weeks
ago. were sentenced to 20 years
each in the penitentiary at the
Prince Rupert assizes. Two other robbers were killed at the
time and another is still in the
hospital suffering from injuries
received. The leader, who got
away with $1200, was never captured. THE PROSPECTOR

MAY 22.   1914.
The United States gave away
the largest and best part of its
Western forests at a uniform
price of $2.50 an acre for land,
and threw the timber in for good
measure. British Columbia almost from the very beginning
pursued a different policy. The
provincial government sold the
timber and retained title to the
land. But it did not sell the timber outright. It gave the applicant a licence to cut the timber
on a certain tract, charged him
an annual rental for the privilege
of reserving the ground and made
him pay a royality of fifty cents
a thousand feet, board measure,
on all timber cut.
During the session of the provincial legislature which closed
in March, the Hon. W. R. Ross,
Minister of Lands, introduced
and obtained the passage of a
bill to increase the timber royalty. A flat raise from fifty to
seventy^five cents a thousand ft.,
with further increases in five
year periods, was made, and in
addition the profit-sharing principal was introduced. In the future the royalty on British Columbia timber will largely depend on the condition of the
lumber market. The flat royalties provided for in the new act
are based upon lumber bringing
eighteen dollars a thousand feet.
When the market price of lumber
rises above this figure, part of
the increased value goes into the
provincial treasury.
For the present at least this
profit-sharing clause will provide
small revenue for the province.
The output of the mills on both
sides of the line when running at
capacity is greater than the demand. But this condition, like
the forests themselves, will not
last forever. Sooner or later—
sooner if the Panama Canal can
widen the market for Pacific
coast woods—the value of the
timber must advance far beyond
its present level. When that
time comes British Columbia,
thanks to the foresighted steward
of its land, will see part of the
unearned timber increment go
into roads, bridges and other improvements of benefit to every
citizen.
It should be added that the
Forest Service of the federal Department of Agriculture has incorporated similar provisions in
all contracts for the sale of timber from the National Forests
whenever the cutting of the timber by the purchaser extended
over more than five years.
It is announced that the Scottish people are seriously taking
up the question of a local legislation for Scotland. They are
making this request, chiefly on
the following grounds—because,
in consequence of the congestion
of work in the Imperial house of
commons, they cannot get the
legislation which they desire, and
because they want a well-consid
ered act for the purpose of
re-settling the country's vacant
lands.
The last census—that taken in
the year 1911-revealed that the
land during the past decade has
been depopulated to an extent
that had not been realized previously. Scotland wan ts a robust
country population, and for that
purpose an act which will be
reasonably acceptable to those
who would settle upon the lands
now vacant or given over to forest or recreation grounds. She
is not asking, would indeed not
have, the powers of legislation
contained in the Irish bill now before the house of commons, but
simply wants control over specially local affairs.
H. J. Mackinder, Unionist
member for the Camlachie division of Glasgow, moved the rejection of the bill, in the house
of commons, declaring that it
made merely for Scottish parochialism.
Manitoba university has conferred the decree of L.L.D. on
Charles Napier Bell, F.R.G.S.,
in recognition of his extensive
researches and writings in connection with the history and resources of western and northern
Canada, and for general services
to the public for thirty years.
Dr. Bell is secretary to the Winnipeg board of trade and grain
exchange and has received recognition and honors from many historical and scientific societies in
America and Europe.
Many people who are fond of
onions in one form or another are
deterred from eating them because of their 'residue perfume.'
Self denying onion lovers may
now indulge their appetite with
perfect impunity if they observe
the following precaution: After
eating onions take a generous
teaspoon ful of granulated sugar.
A few minutes after taking the
sugar the breath will cease to be
offensive.

Chinese Tell the Police That
Mrs. C. Millard is
In The City
Is Mrs. Millard dead? According to the story told Deputy
Chief of Police McRae and Detective Inspector John Johnson,
she is not. Both officers had occasion to pay a visit to Chinatown
a few nights ago, and in the
most solemn manner were informed that the woman for whose
murder Jack Kong will stand his
trial, was alive, and more startling still, that she would be produced at the court.
