With tho Arrwtra at the Lorn* Claim on
Wm. Young One of the owners of the
Lome group of claims on Cadwallader
creek, arrived in town the first of the
week from the claims, bringing with him
some of the amalgam of the last cleanup
with the arrastra.
From eight days run about |655 was
taken out of the arrastra. The material
put through was mostly decomposed
quartz taken from the ledge recently uncovered. Since returning a couple of
weeks ago the men have been putting in
work driving and stripping the ledge at a
different point and were successful in
uncovering a rich body of ore, and it was
from this that the cleanup was made. It
it the intention to sink on this ledgejind
open it up to such an extent that the
o vners will know what tbe have.
At present five men are at work with
Gib Ward in charge. The Lorne is proving ill right and from (he last two cleanups, with this primitive node of mining,'
goes to show that the owners have a
tfood thing, and with modern machinery
would prove it one of the best properties
in the district.
Mr. Young left again for the claims
Touraday mornjiig and J. R. Williams,
who also has an interest will leave the
first of the week,:
The arrastra is running again in good
chape putting through rich rock and in
the course of a few week another good
cleanup will be made.
The Lytton Mail Service.
The following is tbe petition to be forwarded to the postmaster-general. -
Whereas the wagon road between Lytton and Lillooet, B. C, is completed and
open to traffic, thus rendering communication between these points easier arid
And whereas the residents along the
•aid wagon road under the present postal arrangements experience great inconvenience in regard to the receiving
and despatching of mail. -
And whereas the establishing of a direct mail service along the wagon road
would relieve the said resident! and
would materially benefit the residents of
Lytton and Lillooet and promote and
foster the commercial interests of both
towns, and be of great service to the
mining industry and those engaged in
mining at Lytton, Lillooet and points
We the undersigned residents of Lytton, Lillooet and along the said wagon
road, respectfully ask that arrangements
be made at aa early a date aa poaaible
for the direct mail service along this
Cllntoa Race*.
A large and representative meeting ef

: The dates fixed are 5th and 6ih of

The Lytton Road.
The extra appropriation Jor the Lillooet-Lytton wagon road will be used up
in a couple of weeks time.. Although
we understand the road will be pushed
to completion. . The trail, across the
slide ia gradually widening out arid
permits more man to be at work. Considering tbe difficulties to be encountered
tbia work ia going rapidly ahead and the
way things look at present traffic will go
over in at leaat a months time. Through
stages will then be run from Lytton to
Lillooet three times a week. The' distance by the road between the two towns
will not be over 42 miles, making Lillooet about 20 miles close to the railroad.        	
R. & W. Gumming have added to their
Hour mill a plant for the manufacture of
Graham flour and can now supply that
article to customers in ten pound bags.

announced in tbe house today that
prorogation will take place next week.
He sa"d that the senate refoim resolutions will be dropped.
Sir Charles said he would do what he
could to assist in clojing and did not
see why prorogation should not take
place next week.
At leaat, Vancouver today must have
a population of 35,000, and ia by long
odds the la .st city in British Columbia. This year's assessment will be

The report on the Brett group of

with the property. Some of the owners
were up this week keeping things in
shape for starting to work.
The Salvation Army at present stationed at Kamloops will bombard Ashcroft
next week with a view of rescuing the
sinners of that burg. There is lots of
good material to work on and if they
succeed in saving any souls they will indeed be grand victoriea.
A couple of sportsmen were up aa far
aa Roaring creek on Anderson lake this

discovered a porcupine and both wasted
a box of cartridges trying to ahoot it.

delaying him a day and a half coming to
town to have the wheel repaired.
The Cariboo road is being flooded with
Chinese freighters, seventeen outfits being o_ the road at present. Considerable
kicking is being done as tbey aie
gradually spoiling the white men who
are in that line of business. Something
uliould be done in the matter as it is
working a great hardship on the people
along tbe road.   Boycott the devils.
Canada Stand* Finn.
No undue national sacrifices, even if
the consequence be a resort to the arbit-
rat-rant of arms, 1s United Canada's answering endorsement of tbe official
utterances on the Alaskan boundary
question delivered in the house of Commons last Saturday.
Premier Laurier'a declaration that a
settlement can be reached with the
United States only by arbitration or war
haa called attention to the gravity of the
-ituation in a striking manner. Party
lines have been obliteiated, factional
strife has been thrust to one side for the
time being, and the united country
stands behing tbe Liberal Government
in its expressed determination not to
yield an atom of what are deemed just
national rights, unless equivalent concession are made by tbe United States.
The speech delivered by the premier
and the promise of support given to the
government by Sir Charles Tupper,
leader of the Conservative Opposition,
were absorbing topica of diacuasion in
politics circles throughout the Dominion.
No discordant note is sounded in the
;horus of approval that has arisen. The
bouadry dispute is now accepted as a
national question upon which patriots
can have only one opinion, and it is upon this line that the issue will be made.
The tender of the Conservative support
has been accepted by the Government in
the spirit in which it was made. It is
tantamount to a declaration for coalition
government on all matters pertaining to
a rigid maintenance ef what Canada
deems her inalienable rights of the
northwest boundary line. From now
on, it is predicted, no atop regarding it
will be taken by Premier Laurier without consultation with 8ir Charles Tupper
though thia will not be necessary to
insure Conservative support.
One point making for peace must not
be overlooked though. Tbe very gravity
of the situation, as officially proclaimed,
is likely to operate toward removing tbe
present tension. Tbe seeming danger
has brought clearly before the public the
necessity of at once arriving at a settlement of the bound rry dispute.

and Aahc-vft

The baseball match arranged between
tUe Ashcroft team and Lillooet will lie
played tomorrow afternoon in Lillooet.
Every arrangement has been made for
the visitors who will arrive tbia afternoon by special B. X. stage. The grounds
have bees put in abape and the Lillooet
b >ya intend to give Ihe AahcreH team aa
hard a game aa poaaible.
The following are the lillooet players
sod their positions:
O. T. Diamond (captain) pitcher; J.
Sanson, catcher; R. J. Atkin, first base;

third base; A. Pbair, left fi"W; W. G.
Duguid, center field; T. Spelman, right
field; T. A. Brett, short stop; A. A.
Brett, spare man.
The umpire will be chosen from the
Ashcroft visitors.
In the evening after the match a dinner will be given the visiting team at
the Pioneer hotel, which will no doubt
be a first class affair with the host, Mr.
W. F. Allen in charge.
From reports we learn that quite a
number of people from Ashcroft will he
in attendance to visit the town and
watch the match. Everyone will be
made welcome'hy the Lillooet team and
it hoped that tbe visitors will .return to
their home well pleaaed with their outing and their visit to the town of Lillooet.

A   peti ion   was circulated this week
which   will   be  forwarded to the postmaster general, asking that a mail service be established from Lytton to Lil-
loo-t.     The petition was largely signed
by residents of both towns and everyone
along the route to be traveled.     With a
mail service established   from  Lytton,
Lillooet should be able to receive mail
three or four times a week.     It will be
a matter of much imi ortance to the people of Lillooet and those living along the
road.   Heretofore people along the road
had to go to Lytton for their mail, lately
the stage driver has accommodated them
in delivering the mail  at  their doors.
The-postmaster general should rearrange
the mail service into this section as soon
as the road is   completed, and also  to
make satisfactory arrangements to supply the people iii'the vicinity of Pavilion.
The member for this district should be
asked to use his influence in the matter.

be very harmful. It is no good just so
long a. the machine is under the control,

but the moment the people's voice shall

dangerous, because it may becoraa a

Chinese Tax Will be Increased.
G, R. Maxwell, the member for Burrard in the house of commons, has returned to Vancouver from Ottawa. He
says that the Chinese restriction amendment bill is now in progress, and he felt
sure that the tax would be, increased to
$250, but he cpuld give ho encouragement or promise of any Japanese restrictive measures.

A Conundrum.
The government caucus held at Victoria last week resulted in the Hon. Jos.
Martin sending in his resignation as attorney genera', but still holding his seat
in the legislature* Joseph was much
disappointed on finding that he had no
followers in the government ranks, and
he will wreak vengeance on them all.
Eighteen members of the government
attended the caucus and 'he whole affair
waB conducted in a quiet manner. Premier Semlin had the unanimous support
of all and when Joseph tumbled to the
fact, he handed in his resignation. Several names have been mentioned for the
portfolio.vacant, but as yet nothing definite has been done in the selection.
From the locks of the government at
present it is not likely that there will be
a general election.   ,..„

Semlin (after reflection). — Really,

A gentleman who is thoroughly well
posted on the situation, in the Slocan,
says that there is altogether tco much
politics mixed up with the mining situation there; that the mine managers to
a man supported the late Turner government, and are now doing their utmost
to bring about the downfall of the Semlin government. The Turner Government was the mere tool of the Duns-
muirs, and tbe mine managers in the
Slocan want a government that will do
their bidding. The Dunsmuirs paid the
election expenses of the Davie-Turner
crowd for years, and, in return, escaped
taxation. The mine managers in the
Slocan, being mostly aliens, are willing
to do likewise to escape taxation.—Nelson Tribune,
The "Westminister Gazette" divides
public opinion on the subject of the
Church ot England into three parties,
viz.: 1. Lord Hugh Cecil and the High
Church party: "We will maintain to

positions." That is the, church shall
continue to derive its revenues from the
state but shall not be governed by it. 2.
Sir William Harcourt: "A church
established but disciplined, under' the
authority of Parliament _nd the Crow'n,
which in the last resort, is superior to
ecclesiastics." 3. The Liberationistd,

of tlie government supporters at Victoria
last week and although .those in attendance refuse to give out any information
it wrs generally understood that the decision was reached   by the  members o{

thought that there will be any general

New York, July 28.—The Paris correspondent of the Herald says: Paul De
Cassagnac, in his rage over the long life
of the Republic, teait England and the
United States to tatters, this morning.
He says these nations, that helpe I Germany have done their utmost to make
the conference at The Hague a failure.
Germany, he says, had, at any rate, the
courage of her ideas, and was frank in
declaring disarmament impossihle. Then
he goes on: " But the odious role, the
infamous role, of the Peace Conference
has been played by England and the
United,States; two people who formerly
dared to say their alliance was enforced
by important interests of civilization. It
is now proved, on the contrary, that
they are partners through their gluttonous habits of barbarity and savage-
ness. Thanks to the shameful and ignominious opposition of England and the
United States, all are free to invent the
most destructive weapons. England and
the United States audiciously assumed
the responsibility of war, have put themselves beyond the pale of civilization.
They are filthy nations, that place advantages, and their selfish interests, before all com mandent of civilization and
before all duties humanity."
, Raised the British Flajt.
Stamford, Conn., July 20.—A summer
resident named Edward Brown was fined
$50 and costs yesterday. He was charged
with a breach of the peace, the trouble
arising out of a row precipitated by the
raising of a British flag on the fourth of
July. The niece of Robert FoBdick, a
resident of the town, undertook to rai-e
British colois when everybody was celebrating American Independence day.
The flag was promptly torn down from
the Fosdick dwelling. The young woman unable to buy or borrow unocher,
made one herself and hoisted it over the
Mayor Tupper asked Fosdick to remove it, which he refvsed to do. Later
Selectmen Holly and Edward Brown
paid a visit to Foskick, meeting him at
the gate in front of his house, returning
from a drive. Fosdick claims that both
men appeared to have been drinking.
a anyr.,t', he fays they began abusing
him for unfurling the British flagon the
fourth cf July, and hot words ensued.
Finally, to frighten them as he claims,
Fosdick threatened to horsewhip the two
men, whereupon Mr. Brown drew a revolver and Fosdick had him arrested.
British Columbia Bonds.
The prosperity of the province of British Columbia and the wonderful development of its resources quite accounts
for the confidence shown in the future of
the country by the purchasers of the
latest issue of bonds The successful
flotation in London of $1,700,000 at an
advance of one per cent, over any previous loan may well be made the subject
of genera] congratulations, and is in
keeping with the growth of belief in
this dominion now observable in the

That First Sin.
Probably our great ancestor, Adam,
little thought of the trouble he would
cause posterity by eating an apple. But
now the question as to how many apples
he really did eat is a new difficulty.
How many apples did Adam and Eve
eat? Was it one or was it millions?
When the subject was mooted the editor
very naturally replied, " Why, one, of
" No," said the assistant editor, "Eve
ate one, and Adam ate one, too; that's
Then the subeditor passed along a slip
of paper on which was written, " Eve 81
and Adam 81, making 162."
But the poet, who is man of imagination, capped this with, " Eve 81 and
Adam 812—893."
Then the publisher tried his hand
and his contribution was, " Eve 8,142
see how it tasted, and, Adam 812, equals
The poet who dislikes being surpassed
as much as he hates barbers, came up to
the scratch again with " Eve 8,142 see
how it tasted and Adam 81,242 keep her
Then the humoris', who had been lis-
tening, quietly handed in his contribution, "Eve 8,142 see how it tasted, and
Adam 8,124,210-der a husband was he to
see her eat alone. This equal. 8,132,352."
" But he had another object," said the
poet. " Eve 8,142 sati.fy her curiosity,
and Adam 8,124,240-fy Eve in her position. That makes 8,132,382."—Philadelphia Record.
John D. Rockefeller has incidentally
foreclosed a mortgage, in the course of
his far western trip, which brings him
into ownership of practically the whole
town of Everett, Wash. Its 3,000 or
more people become his tenants, and yet
the sum of the mortgage was only $1,-
500,000, which does not begin to equal
reputed income for a single year.

After you get angry and stop your
paper, just poke your finger inte water,
pull it out, and look at the hole; then
you will know how sadly you are missed.
A man who thinks a paper cannot thrive
without his support ought to get off and
stay a while. When he comes back half
his friends will not know that he has
gone and half will not care, while the
world at large kept no account of his
movement. You will find things you
cannot endorse in every paper. The
Book of Books is often very plain and
hits some hard raps; but if you were to
get mad and burn your Bible, the hundreds of presses would still go on printing
it. So when you stop your paper and
call the editoa names, the paper will
still be published; and what is more,
you will read it on t'>e sly.—Ex.
