RAILROAD NOTES
Ed Kennedy, of Welch
and Kennedy, was in town
Monday on business.
Austin Welch, of Welch
and Kennedy, spent Wednesday in town.
It is understood that
Burns, Jordan and Welch,
who have about two miles of
construction work on Seton
Lake—which takes in the
only tunnel on the two lakes
—will soon start on their
contract at the upper end of
Anderson Lake. This new
work consists of four miles
of construction running west,
This firm of contractors is
one of the largest in the
west and have extensive
contracts all over B. C. They
are at present constructing
a tunnel on the C. N. R., at
Yale, which is nearing completion. This firm have just
signed up for a piece of work
embracing twenty miles of
construction on the Kootenay
Central, a branch line of the
C. P. R., connecting their
main line at Golden with
the Crow's Nest line. This
is all heavy work and will
require about seven steam
shovels.
Angus Nicholson, of Nicholson and Timelick, paid a
flying visit to town yesterday, returning to camp this
morning.
J. McDougall, J.A.Welch's
superintendent, was in town
Sunday enroute to Vancouver, where he is now in the

WITH THE
SURVEYORS
The Provinctal Government has already commenced surveying operations this
spring in the Lillooet district and Mr. G. M. Down-
ton, B. C. L. S., with a crew
of five experienced assistants
is at present engaged in
making a survey [ofj Seton
Lake.
This survey will complete
the tie between Lillooet and
Pemberton Meadows and
will be another link in the
chain enabling the Department T)f Lands to publish reliable maps of the important
section which lies along the
route of the Pacific Great
Eastern Railway.
Now, that our district is
being opened up by the advent of the railway, reliable
maps are an imperative necessity and the Survey's
branch ot the Department of
Lands, so ably reorganized
by the present Surveyor General Mr. G. H. Dawson, is
making strenuous efforts to
furnish them to the public.
The Lillooet district is
much in the public eye at
the present time, nor is the
time far distant when the
whole of the beautiful stretch
of country from the Short
Portage to Pavilion Mountain, so remarkable for its
wonderful scenery and ideal
climate, will be thronged
with homeseekers eager to
take advantage of a district
where Nature is so lavish
with her charms and where
the whole atmosphere
breathes superab undant
health.
To the center of this dis
trict lies the town of Lillooet
sheltered from the north by
mountains of surpassing
grandeur and commanding a
view to the south and east
that fills visitors with delight.
Numerous surveys are contemplated by the Department of Lands in this district and among the most
satisfactory activities of ihe
Government is the surveying
of pre-emptions, by which
means the pre-emptor's boundaries are defined for nim at
an early period of his occupation.
Not only the Government
is moving in the matter of
surveys, but numerous property owne.s are taking advantage of the present activities to subdivide their
properties into smaller holdings in anticipation of the
grert influx of population
which the railway will bring.
It is perhaps a little deeper even i'or us in the west to
realize how fast the country
is forging ahead. Those of
us, who have watched the
growth of Vancouver recently, have had all our
ideas of progress staggered
by the enormous changes
that have taken place within
the past five or six years.
Do we here also sufficiently
realize that with the advent
of the railway, we are actively situated on the nearest
point to Vancouver at which
a really dry and bracing climate can be obtained and
may it not be supposed that
with such'advantages as we
possess ihat the tired city
workers of the greatest city
on the Pacific coast will be
sure to take advantage of
the Pride of British Colum-
Terse Town Tales
Mr. Arthur Noel was in
town from Vancouver the
first of the week, arranging

Lillooet will come into its
own, and the industrial enterprises, which at the present time are being carefully
and seriously contemplated
with so far towards solving
the difficulties which have
long checked the development of the vast natural resources with which the district abounds.
We are on the eve of a
great forwaad movement in
this district of ours and we
should do well to keep the
fact in mind and, refraining
from an unreasonable opto-
mism, view with complacency the future of a town which
is ideal alike from a point of
view of distribution and residence. The Prospector

The mass meeting held in
the Hurley hall last Monday
evening was postponed after
a lengthy discussion to a
future date. In the meantime it is the intention to
look into the matter and see
if the property holders are
prepared to take the matter
up at this time.
The clean-up campaign recently inaugurated by the
police has resulted in considerable good so far.
The recent cold snap was
a boon to the wood dealers.
The real estate situation
is livening up.

CANADIAN BORN
We first saw the   light  in   Canada, the land beloved of God;
We are the nulse of Canada,  its
marrow and its blood,
And we, the men of Canada, can
face the world and bras
That we were born in  Canada
beneath the British flag.
Few of us have the blood of kings,
few are of courtly birth,
But all are vagabonds and rogues
of doubtful name and worth;
And all have one credential that
entitles us to brag-
That we were born in Canada beneath the British flag.
We've yet to make our money,
we've yet to make our fame,
But we have gold and glory in
our clean colonial name;
And every man's a millionaire if
he can only brag
That he was born in Canada beneath the British flag.
No title and no coronet is half so
proudly worn
As that which we  inherited   as
men Canadian born;
We count no man so noble as the
one who makes the brag
That he was born in Canada beneath the British flag.
The Dutch may have their Holland, tlie Spaniard have his
Spain,
The Yankee to the  south  of us
must south of us remain;
For not a man dare lift a  hand
against the men who brag
That they were born  in  Canada
beneath the British flag.

AS THE WAITER TOLD IT
New York Sun: The
waiter who bawls out his orders to the cook changes
the order somewhat to that
given by the diner, as follows:
' 'Where's my baked pota-'
to?" asks a customer.  "Mrs.
Murphy in a saal skin coat,'
shouts   the   waiter     "Two
fried eggs, don't fry 'em too
hard."    "Adam and Eve in
the garden, leave their eyes
open!"   shouts   the   waiter.
"Chicken croquettes,"  says
the customer.    "Fowl ball."
calls  the waiter.    "Hash,'
says a customer.    "Gentleman wants to take a chance,"
says the waiter.    "I'll have
hash, too," ordered the next
customer. "Another sport."
shouted the waiter. "Frankfurters and saurkraut," orders the customer.    "Fido,
Shep and a bale of hay calls
the waiter.

Mary was a washing woman,    Who   worked    with

best, but they couldn't get a

Chief Red Cloud in the lead
—they crossed   the street,
and told Chef Buck about
the   awful deed.    This deed
