THE  PROSPECTOR.
Vol. i. No. 9.
LILLOOET, B. C. FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 9, 1898.
$2.00 a year.
BRIDGE   RIVER.
0. A. Harthoi nt* arrived from Cadwallader creek on Wednesday after having
spent several months in the district. He
is one of the first prospectors in that
section and was one of the discoverers
of the gold belt along Cadwallader creek.
He owns agioup of three claims, above
the Ida May ami adjoining the Lome
group, aud has been doing assessment
work on the group for the past few-
months. He has on two of the claims
what is called the big ledge which has
a number of smaller ledges running into
it, on the large ledge there is no free
gold visible, but the rock is very good,
the ledge on the other claim shows free
gold. The claims look exceptionally
well with the work already done on
them and from the indications are good
property.
Mr. Harthorne is surprised that the
camp has not gone ahead faster as the
showing forover ten miles beats anything
on the continent. He is an experienced
mining man and knows whereof he
speaks. He has been in the Bridge river
district and after careful investigation
will stay with it, as it will only be short
time until things g> ahead and one of
the hest and richest camps in the province will (>e up Bridge river. The trans-
porta'ion facilities is one of the greatest
drawback the district ha* got.
He will return   in a few days to the
Rend 'Or mine where he w 11 take over
I the hoarding house and also run a store
in connection with it.
a little bright yellow brick in the window of Robertson Bros.,mininghrokeis,
Mackinnon block. It had a card beside
it which set forth that the hiick was the
result of a cleanup at the Bend' Or mine,
that the brick weighed 8.27 ounces and
that its value was approximately $160
Monday morning there was no brick
and no card The piles of ore in the I
window glittered as brilliantly as ev« r,
but the finished product was nowhere
to be seen. A window which opens from
the lane into Mr. Robertson's private
office showed signs of being forced but
beyond this there was no mark of v.ol-
ence having been used.
THE   BIO   PROVINCIAL   FAIR,
Peace River District.
Pioneer Arrastra a Success.
The arrastra at the Pionner is working
line, ever since the start on the first. It
is ) mining day and night and at an estimate are put'iug through over two |tons
of lock a day. Most of the rock is high
grade and a good cleanup will be made
about the middle of the month.
The Lome Arrastra.
The arrastra at the Lome has been delayed for about ten days on account of
the tmbin wheel   and   the   water   not
working satisfactory.   The owners will
now put in an over-shot wheel, which is
figured will be able to do the work.    It
was expected to have the arrastra running by this time, and this extra work
will stop the work for a few weeks, then
everything will be  in  shape for actual
working and few good cleanups will be
made this season.     Wm. Young one of
the owners was in town this week making further arrangements for continuing
the work.    When the Lome gets to work
it will make a good cleanup and it is confidently   exprested   that   the   cleanups
from both the Pioneer and Lome are go-
i
John Thornell and partner arrived in
town the first of the week from an extended visit into the Peace river country.
They report good diggings in the Omen-
ica and Peace and claim they got 75
cents to the pan. Capt. Black claimed
the ground they were working, but they
have no doubt as they have got the prior
right. It was on this account that they
did not continue work this fall. Mr.
Thornett »known in this vicinity having spent some time here before, and
will stop here this winter with the intention of returning to the northern
country in the spring.
Clinton nine Bonded.
Thomas Charles, representing American capital has taken a bond on the
property recently discovered near Clinton by George Walker, for the sum of
$100,000. There was no money paid
down but work will be started shortly
and several thousand dollars will be
spent in developing. Ever) one seems
confident that it is a good property as
the float found in this vicinity has been
very rich and the ledge ha* been looked
for repeatedly for a number of years.
With active work going on it will make
times good abound Clinton.
Mining Near the Fountain.
Mr. H. S. Southard of Pennsyvania,
is making preparations for experimenting with a mining apparatus a few miles
on the other side of the Fountain on the
Fraser river. He is getting lumber, supplies, etc., from town and will see what
he can do in mining the benches. A few
men are helping him at present and in
a few weeks we hope to give an account
of this work.
The big Diovincial fair at New Westminster, October 5th to 13.h, inclusive
is still receiving considerable attention
and great interest is being taken in all
paiis of the province. A number of
men are busy enl Tging the exhibition
buildings and they will be twice the
size as heretofore. Great preparations
are being made for all the exhibits and
no trouble whatever will be spared to
make the fair a grand success. The mining industry of British Columbia will le
well represented, a separate building is
being erected especially for mineral exhibits. Prom all parts of the province
active efforts are being made to send in
an exhibit. Lillooet district is also preparing to send samples to the exhibition. It is hoped that the collection
will be complete by the 20th of this
month, as it will be necessary to ship
shortly after that time. Any persons
having any samples should send them
in at once, aud help make up a collection, as it will be a grand advertisement
for the Lillooet district to have its ores
put before the public at this exhibition.
Arrangements, have been made by the
managers in connection with the
citizens' committee to entertain the visitors with sports, games, races, etc., and
a first class fire works display, aud pyro-
spectacular bombardment of Santiago
de Cuba and blowing up of the Maine.
Special rates have been made by the
C. P. R. to carry passengers the round
tip, which will allow* numbers'to take
advantage of this grand exhibition. The
rates fioin the points which interest the
Lillooet people are from Ashcroft $8.30
and from Lytton $6.90 and return.
Ice Cream Social.
On Wednesday evening an ice cream
social took place in the Methodist church.
There was a very good attendance and
the demand for the ice cream was
greater than the supply. The proceedings were enlivened by songs and recitations. Mr. Geo. H. Grant of New Westminster, contiibuting two appreciative
and humorous selections, which brought
down the house. The Sunday school
children also did very well. The proceeds
amounted to $8.60, which goes to the
Sunday school fund. The Rev. R.
Hughes wishes to thank all the ladies
who so generously assisted, and also Mr.
Noel for the supply of ice.
camp and then the hunting commenced,
parties going each way in the search of
anything from chipmunks to grizzlies,
but the bold hunters returned to camp
without killing anything. Where the
party camped was an ideal place and
with the delicacies supplied in the way
of eatables a very pleasant outing was
enjoyed by the boy*. The party got
home during Thursday afternoon. The
bear which gave the hunters the frost
last week, was too far ahe d to give chase
although some thought they could easily overtake him.
Pavilion.
A substantial dam has been built at
the outlet of the Blue lake of this place,
by W. Cumming and J. Renfew. by
means of w hich a large body of water can
be saved for irrigation purposes. It
wa° built by the Farmers and Millers
Combined Industrial Association of Pav
dion and relieves them of a long im pending responsibility. The want of e good
serviceable dam has been left here for a
number of years, both by the farmers
and the millers, as the lake would fall so
low that the outlet would be almost dry
just at the time when the water was the
most required. The small stream that
comes down Pavilion creek from the
mountain is not sufficient to supply one
farmer. With the present dam the water
can be shut off when not in use and in
consequence of which the lake will continue to rise until it flo^s over the dam
and gives at least three feet of water on
a surface of a comparatively large lake.
The dam is ten feet wide and about
twenty long with a head gate three feet
wide and five deep, and will allow a sufficiently large body of water to pass
through to supply all the neighbors at
once if necessary. p.

Editor The Prospector,—Sir: People
of this town owning dogs which they
wish to keep for reason of their great
usefulness, or beaury, had better keep
them at home at nights. The cur nuisance has grown to such an extent that it
is time a little Winchester medicine was
applied. After this date if your dog does
not show up in the morning, remember

LILLOOET, B. C, FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 9,1.9 '.
The building of a wapon road to take
in machinery andsupplies to the Bridge
River district should be the universal
opinion of every one in the district and
should do everything in their power to
bring this matter to a speedy construction. The trail along side of Seaton lake
is in a very bad condition and most of
the travel is by canoes up the lake, and
as soon as the building of the road is assured steamboats will be put on the lake
to make connections. The trail from
Mission to the narrows, a distance of
fourteen miles could be easily widened
out and graded into a wagon road, allowing freight teams to pass over. From
the narrows to Sucker creek boats can
be taken up the river with good loads
and in winter the river is frozen hard
enough to allow teams to travel over it
in safety. From Sucker creek to the
Bend 'Or mine is about eight miles, and
the road could still continue to follow
the line of the present trail, which
runs through a number of valuable mineral claims. The whole distance necessary for the road would be about twenty
miles, and the estimate of the cost has
been placed at $10,000. By not having
transportation facilities into the Bridge
river is the greatest drawback that the
district of Lillooet has got. There is
plenty of gold as the numerous claims
which has had any development done
has proved and with proper transportation the Lillooet district will come to
to the front with paying mines.
There has been very little information
received lately concerning the mail system for the Bridge Kiver district.     The
way mail is taken in now is not satisfactory and it is a common thing for men
to   make   special   trips  for their mail,
at present the mail is only taken along
when some person is going in light, and
is left along the trail at   the  different
camps.   The prospectors throughout the
district are  always   pleased   to get any
news of the outside world and the person bringing in mail is always a welcome
visitor.   Sometimes it is several weeks
between intervals of   mail   and  people
are put to a great deal of annoyance as
important business is often, d< 1; yed.   A
mail service into the Bridge River twice
a mouth would  be  greatly  apprec'a «id
by the business men here and the residents of the district. Correspondence has
passed between some of oar citizei s with
the authorities who have promised to
look into the matter.
Prohibition circulars were received at
The Prospector office this week for which
we are greatly obliged.    The plebiscite
will be taken on Thursday, 29lh September, and the returning officers for the
polling stations are being selected. There
has bt en no effort on either side in this
district and the most of the people
are not bothering about this " burn-
ning quest on." We think if the prohibition leaders would not eend
out the campaign leaflets they would
probably do more good, if a man was to
digest I he contents, he could not resist
taking -ome spirits to keep up hope.

LYTTON   ITEMS.
The town is still dragging along the
same as usual, nothing to startle the inhabitants. The Indians and Chinamen
have arrived from New Westminster,
with a hard luck Btory about the salmon
fishing, "halo hyou, tenas stop."
About forty chinaman arrived last Friday and are busy making rockers, preparing to wash gold on the Fraser.
Miss Dobie, who has been visiting her
sis'erMrs. O. G. Sutherland for gome
time, left last Saturday for her home in
Port Arthur.
Mrs Brophy has returned from Mountain Creek where her husband is engaged
by the C. P. R. filling Mountain Creek
Bridge by hydraulic power.
James McKnight is improving the
appearance of his residence somewhat,
having built a neat veranda around the
house
Messrs. Robson and Sutherland had
a successful day shooting on the first.
Mr. Henderson has again moved out to
his country residence. Since the hot
spell of weather the tramps are starting
again, there being only nine here one
day last week.
There are several who own mineral
claims now starting out to do their asse°i-
ment   work.     Owing   to   the   intense
heat work was almost practically suspended.
The people here and along the road
would like to hear from the honorable
chief commissioner of land and works
on the Lillooet-Lytton road.
News From Yale.
Mining matters around Yale have been
veay quiet until the last week when Mr.
Wadleigh of Seattle arrived and started
with a gang of ten men to work the old
Stout placer claim on Si wash creek,
which they bought recently. Mr. Wad-
leigh represents a very wealthy syndicate and to all appearance means business.
Mr. Gregory of Whatcom isheredoing
assessment work on a couple of claims
situate on Siwash creek and belonging
to Whatcom parties.
Addison Bybee of Indianapolis, Ind.,
and S. H. Westfall of Sacramento, Cal.,
are here looking over the Hill's Bar
placer property, with the intention of
buying and working on a large scale if
their investigation proves satisfactory.
The latest scheme out for taking the
gold from the bottom of the river has
just betn discovered by a man from
Saginaw, Mich., who arrived here last
week with a party of four men. We
have not yet seen the machine working
so cannot describe it, but from all accounts it is alright as it only brings up
the gold—saving the trouble of lifting
and sluicing the sand. The owner is
very sanguine over its success, as it is
rumored he left a claim that paid in five
days the sum of $75,000, to come here
with the machine.
At the meeting of the Supreme Court
of the Independant Order of Foresters,
at Toronto, Friday, Dr. Oronhyatekhe

Prohibition Campaign.
The prohibition campaign has been
fail ly started in the east, and the advocates ami opponents of the measure are
now besieging federal authorities at
Oitawa for facts and figures for use in the
plebiscite campaign. Judging by the
number of applications for official information regarding the liquor traffic, which
is now on its trial, the question that is
always the first one asked is, "what is
the  annual drink of  Canada?"
The royal commisBSon on prohibition
calculated the drink bill of Canada, on
the average retail prices, at $39,87^,854
per annum. This, however, doos not allow
for the weakening of spirits by water
which the commissioners say it is well
understood is largely done. They reported, therefoie, that the actual drink bill
would be undoubtedly in excess of the
sum named, or to put it in round figures,
something beyond forty million dollars
a year. The calculation was made on
the basis of the consumption of 1893. The
first cost of this flood of exhilaration and
desolation \i placed at $25,000,000 to
pay for its distribution and yield profit
to all who handle it. The commission
found that more than 21 600,000 gallons
of stimulants were consumed by Canadians, costing as follows:
It was estimated thatof this $11,158 683
represented domestic liquors, and $3,-
871,381 imported.
