The last of the big game hunting parties, for this year, arrived
in town Wednesday. Frank Gott
was in charge of this hunting
expedition. Frank states that
big game was plentiful this year,
very much above the average.
C. P. Dam, who, with his wife,
returned to the South Fork last
Sunday, is determined to make
his abode one of the busy centres
of the Bridge river. He is employing about a dozen men, has
installed a telephone, and means
to keep going all winter.
Chas. Place, the Pemberton
pioneer, is in town for a few days.
The advent of the P. G. E. railway has made Charley a wealthy
man; so much so that he subscribed for the Prospector and
paid for it in advance—a most
unusual occurrence in this office.
Development work on this mine
has been started, which is, certainly good news to Lillooet men.
At present about a dozen will be
employed, the preliminary Work
being the driving of about 300
feet of tunnels. Work will be
continued all winter, and by
spring time we may hope to see
this property opened up in such
shape as will corroborate the
opinions of three mining experts
this summer—that it is one of
the biggest gold propositions in
this part of the province. If the
"Broken Hill" mine turns out
anything like what some of the
most reliable mining men have
predicted for it, then Lillooet will
reap a benefit never before realized from any other project. The
mine is close at hand, and is in
close proximity to every natural
facility for its profitable working.
The ore body is little less than a
quarry. The three mining experts to report so favorably on
the property were Messrs. Dunn,
Thomas and Guernsey. They
each visited the mine on separate
occasions, and unknown to each
other, gave practically the same
report. The last mining engineer
to visit the property, was F. J.
Crossland, some two months ago,
and he is considered one of the
most conservative of mining engineers; this is what he said:
' 'Lying on the main contact between the coast granite and the
interior sedimentaries the Broken
Hill mining property presents
features of unusual interest to
the mining expert, and I am of
the opinion that the contact lead
on which the Broken Hill seems
to have the crueial location will,
with proper development and
management, develop into one of
the greatest producers in the
province." Mr. Crossland found
the ore body to average over 90
feet in width, with values in gold,
silver and copper, which, in comparison with the ore treated at a
profit by the Granby and B. C.
Copper companies, leave no doubt
as to the successful operation of
this property. Mr. Crossland
commented on the striking similarity of the Broken Hill ore and
that produced by the Nickle Plate
mine, the best gold mine in British Columbia at the present time.
On the 7th inst. an accident
occurred on the Soo river, Pemberton Meadows, in which Thos.
Ryan and Patrick Mullen lost
their lives through the premature
explosion of dynamite. Owing to
the lack of sufficient evidence
the inquest was deferred until
Wednesday last, 19th inst, when
Coroner Phair empanelled the
following jurors: Samuel Gibbs
(foreman), J.S. Bell.V.E.Keeley,
D. Hurley, Geo. Bell, and Fred.
McDonald. After hearing the
evidence of several eye-witnesses
in which it was made clear that
the accident occurred through
the accidental explosion of a box
of dynamite while the men were
engaged in thawing it, and that
there was no blame attached to
anyone, the jury returned a verdict in accordance with the evidence.
Both Ryan and Mullin were
employees of theP.G.E. railway.
Their bodies were interred in the
Lillooet cemetery on the 7th inst.
When the Golden Dream Mining Co. concluded to go into extensive placer mining on the
South Fork of Bridge river, the
other day, they annexed a claim
that had been in continuous operation for over a dozen years—Dan
Hamilton's gold nugget cache.
He worked alone, and no one but
himself knew what the financial
result was. Little Dan confided
in no one; to any enquiries about
the claim he always replied that
it kept him' 'broke.'' The result
was that he had the whole river
to himself. In the meantime he
bored tunnels into the bank—one
of them 80 feet long—and kept
quiet. For years little Dan supplied the gold nugget market of
Lillooet. If a man wanted a ten
or twenty dollar specimen he
went to Hamilton. Upon one
occasion he came into Lillooet
with a chunk of gold valued at
$82, and a gold buyer, of Lytton
some years ago paid him $2000
for some specimens. Dan was
always a mysterious man—he is
so yet; for, notwithstanding the
fact that he has sold out his mining property, he is still "broke,"
and claims that he always will be
if he stays in this town. He
claims that the company now
about to operate his old placer
ground will eventually make a
big clean-up—when they wing-
dam the river.
Last Sunday morning the rigid
body of Charley Arrowhead, an
Indian well-known in these parts,
was found lying face down on
the road between Seaton and Anderson lakes. Constable McLeod
investigated the case, and found
that deceased, had, on the previous night, been on a whisky
debauch close to the spot where
his body was found. The night
was a cold one, with a little snow,
and it was quite evident that the
Indian had laid down in a drunken stupor and died from exposure. Dr. Christie held an
examination over the body and
concluded that an inquest was
Arrowhead was a man fond of
his bottle, and had made numerous pilgrimages to the Kamloops
bastile. He had only been at
liberty one week when the white
man's enemy, as well as the poor
Indian's, knocked him out.
William Sutherland and Joseph
Shuster have just finished a six-
roomed log cabin on their property near the mouth of the
South Fork. Close to the cabin
they have located a couple of
mineral claims on which they
will do considerable development
work this winter. Experts who
have visited the property pronounce it good; they have a 14
foot ledge running through both
claims, on which which gold can
be panned. No assays have yet
been made, but the prospects are
good enough for them to commence work on a tunnel, at which
"Deadshot Bill" is now busily
engaged. Joe says that the latch
of the cabin door is on the outside, so Bridge river men can
govern  themselves accordingly.

resorted to, but now he has every
hope of saving the leg.

Water Notice.
Some investigations at the University of Wisconsin, the results
of which have just been published, give astonishing facts regarding the ability of birds to destroy
insects. One small exhibit, a
Virginia wren, proved to be able
to dispose of twice its weight of
insects in two days. This is a
tremendous illustration of the
value of birds around orchards
and grain fields, says the Ottawa
Journal. It emphasizes the importance of what we all know,
namely, of encouraging and protecting small birds. The only
exception is the English sparrow,
which is known to have no particular ambition to live on insects
and which is positively objectionable from the tendency it has to
drive away other birds.
Birds are very beautiful and
very desirable if merely from
their color, their songs and their
cheerfulness. When to this is
added their tremendous value to
the food producer it certainly
ought to be the aim of every intelligent person to encourage and
protect them in every possible

NOVEMBER 21, 1913.
Mr. J. F. Rowlands,  government engineer for the comptroller
of water rights, left for Victoria
on Monday last, having completed
his season's work in this district.
Mr. Rowlands has been employed
by the government in examining
all records of water granted in
this district, and also inspecting
the watershed of the Fraser river.
He has had a large experience in
all matters pertaining to the irrigation of land, and was employed
by the  British  government in
Egypt and the Soudan,  where
thousands of acres of desert land,
by  means   of  irrigation,   have
been brought under cultivation.
Of course,  in  British Columbia
there is no large area of land lying
fallow for want of water, but no
doubt there are tracts of land now
used for range purposes which,
by the outlay of money made by
the government, may be brought
under fruitful cultivation.     At
the present time  the  greatest
irrigation schemes ever planned
are now being carried out in the
United   States.     Irrigation has
long been practised in California
and Arizona, but prior to 1875 all
irrigation enterprises in the west
of the United States were of a
private character, and none of a
national character were undertaken until the year 1902.   Today
some six million acres have been
won to the service of man, and
many millions more will, it is expected, be redeemed from worth-
lessness in  the years   that are
coming.   In 1875 Senator Carey,
of  Wyoming,   obtained an Act
from Congress, giving to certain
western States one million acres
of barren desert, the property of
the people of the republic, on condition that within ten years each
state should irrigate and develop
twenty acres in each quarter section.    The cost of the irrigation
work was divided pro rata among
all the quarter sections benefited.
The land so benefited was sold at
fifty cents per acre, to which the
cost of irrigation was added, ranging  from $25 .to $50 per acre.
Payments were   extended over
ten years, secured by mortgages
on the land.   The scheme proved
a great success,  and some three
million acres have been wrested
from the desert under the Carey
Acts.    In 1898   a  Mr. Gifford
Pinchot, a gentleman of means
interested in the national forests
of the United States, and anxious
for their preservation, obtained
from the legislature at Washington the necessary power to organize an efficient Forestry Preservation Service.  It has done noble
work, especially in preserving the
forests about the headwaters of
the  rivers  and streams  which
have been drawn upon for irrigation purposes by the Reclamation
Service.   In Colorado the Gunnison river was admirably suited
for irrigation purposes, but there
was no land suitable for irrigation in the valley. However,
there was plenty of land in the
adjacent Uncompahgre valley
separated by a range of mountains. This fact did not deter
the engineers; they constructed
a tunnel 30,583 feet through the
mountains and diverting the Gunnison river through the tunnel,
brought irrigation to 140,000
acres in the Uncomphagre valley.
United States Reclamation Service has done noble work, for in
the States of Wyoming, Colorado,
Idaho, Montana, Nevada and
Washington they have reclaimed
from the desert 3,250,000 acres
of land. The men who instituted
and suggested this grand work
are known to few outside their
particular sphere. Who, here,
has ever heard of F. H. Newell,
A. P. Davis, Senator Carey or
Gifford Pinchot. These names
should rank above those of victorious generals or potentates of
great renown. These men are
conquerors, but they are conquerors who have not destroyed
life. They have added territory
to their nation, but in so doing
they have not robbed any other
nation or despoiled any other
people. They have subdued the
desert and converted it into green
fields, fat pastures and smiling
deserts. In the world's great
temple of fame their names will
be emblazoned in letters of gold.
The coal measures of this pro
vince are sufficient to supply the
world for centuries; it possesses
the greatest compact area of
merchantable timber in North
America; the mines have produced over $400,000,000, and may
be said to be only in the early
stages of development; the fisheries produce an average annual
value of over $10,000,000, and,
apart from salmon fishing, their
importance is only beginning to
be realized; immense deposits of
magnetic and hematite iron of
the finest quality still remain undeveloped; the agricultural and
fruit lands produced approximately $21,000,000 in 1912 and less
than one-tenth of the a '/ail able
land is settled upon, much less
cultivated; British Columbia has
millions of acres of pulp wood
unexploited; petroleum deposits
but recently discovered. Endowed by nature with all these
essentials, British Columbia is
destined to occupy a significant
position in the world's commerce
and industry.

The Chilcoten country, which
has for so long been associated
principally with cattle raising,
seems in a fair way to shortly
boast of another industry on a
simliar large scale. Naturally
the proposed railway through the
interior district has brought the
adjoining districts into the range
of vision of the investing public.
It is stated on good authority
that thirty thousand sheep will
be taken into the Chilcoten country next spring. This large venture is credited to Vancouver
enterprise. It has been claimed
many times by those interested
in sheep raising, that the large
tracts of grazing land, both east
and west of the Fraser river, are
admirably suited to this industry,
and predictions have been made
foretelling an extensive carrying
on of this industry in the near
future. In the Horse Lake,
North and South Bonaparte
districts, which have been opened
up very rapidly during the past
year, is pasture claimed to be very
suitable for sheep raising. Several settlers in this part are now
experimenting with a few sheep,
With more than satisfactory results, and claim they will commence on a large scale with the
spring of next season.
Mr. Wm. Keddy, who has been
prospecting in the neighborhood
of Lillooet river, reports to us
that he has discovered what he
believes to be a valuable zinc deposit. It is situated on the west
side of Lillooet Lake and about
one mile from the mouth of the
upper Lillooet River. A large
body c* ore is represented, the
ledge being from twenty to forty
feet in width and extending a
distance of 4,000 feet. Samples
of the ore are now in the hands
of an analyst, and we hope to
hear more about this find. Mr.
Keddy staked five claims, which
are situated about six miles from
iiie line oi the P.G.E. railway;
there ia a good wagon road for
about five miles.
Zin„ is a metallic element occurring in nature only in combination with other elements. It is
a blue white, crystalline, brittle
at ordinary temperature, and is
a fair conductor of electricity.
Zinc rolled into sheets is used for
roofing; the metal is also largely
employed to alloy with copper to
i'oi m brass. It is also much used
for coating or galvanizing iron to
keep it from rusting. Zinc chloride is obtained by dissolving the
oxide, metal or carbonate, in
hydrochloric acid. It is an irritant poison and is used in the
solid form as caustic, and in solution as an antiseptic. The world's
production in 1907 was 813,842
tons, the bulk of which was raised
in the United States. The leading zinc producing States are
Kansas, Missouri, Illinois and
