VOL. 3, NO. 29
LILLOOET,   B. C., FRIDAY,  MAY 15, 1914.
$2 PER YEAR
Broken Hill Mine Certain
To Be Good Paying
Proposition
LOCAL AND GENERAL ITEMS.
Speaking of the Broken Hill
mine, the Vancouver Sun, a very
reliable paper, says;
The main tunnel is now 104
feet with 86 feet of cross cuts.
Although walls are distinctly defined att he surface out cropsnone
has been struck in the cross cuts
yet, which means that the ore
body is at least 86 feet wide. It
is estimated to run from 90 to 120
feet in width. But the most encouraging feature of the work
done so far is the splendid depth
gained in the drifts. With 104
feet of tunnel, 130 feet of depth
has been gained. The maximum
depth that can be attained in No
1 tunnel will be at least 2,400
feet, which will mean a tremendous stoping proposition making
the working of the mine a most
economical process. Over 80,000
tons of ore are now blocked out
and in sight.
The transportation and treatment of the ore will be an extremely simple problem. A gravity tram for over a mile down
Sebring creek will bring the ore
to concentrating plant, which can
be operated with power from the
creek. The ore will «*encentrate
in the proportion of 1 in 10,
which will give the concentrates
an average value of $123 per ton
By motortruck the concentrates
can be shipped to a point on the
P. & G. E., about seven miles
away.
AVERAGE   ASSAYS
The average assays of the tun-
nells and cross cuts shows values
of $12 to the ton. As the cost of
mining and treating according to
Mr. Thomas, is so low that the
ore would pay at $4 a ton, it can
be seen that even with the devel-
opement work now done mining
can be carried on at a handsome
profit.
The Broken Hill Company has
been incorporated and the company is now seeking further capital with which to instal the tram
and a demonstration concentrating plant at a cost of about $25, -
000. After that the company
will decide whether to sell the
property as a developed mine or
to go on and with increased capital work it on a large scale. By
either course investors will have
a fine chance of realizing handsome profits.
The ledge of the Broken Hill
was discovered in 1909, but many
years ago Dawson, the famous
Dominion geologist, predicted discoveries of valuable minerals
along the contact of granite and
porphyry in which the great
quartz lode of the Broken Hill
occurs.
Miss Dora Manson is visiting
in Clinton this week.
Blasting is still being carried
on just outside the town, on the
Pacific Great Eastern.
The foot bridge that used to be
across Cayoosh creek, just below
the slide, has been removed.
Ben Blakely, charged with the
murder of A. Trevage of Bridge
river, was acquited at the Clinton assizes this week.
Mr. Rowlands, provincial water
engineer, has been clearing up
records in this district for the
past week. He is going north
when he has finished here.
Mrs. Bishop will leave on Monday or Tuesday for the ranch.
She has been spending the winter
months at her residenc on Cayoosh creek.
Mr. Frank Durban was in town
on Tuesday for supplies for his
store at the head of Seaton lake.
He reported everything coming
along fine, as usual.
Summer has come, the hardy
few who have donned straw hats
are no longer sneaking around
the corner as if they had just
committed a burglary. Pretty
soon the man without a straw hat
will assume a furtive and absent
mindes air as though he had forgotten something.
W. Spetch's smiling face was
once again in town. He arrived
in town en route for the Clinton
assizes in the capacity of a witness. He is, like us, a great believer in the possibilities of the
future of Pemberton Portage,
and Lillooet in general. He returned home tired, but happy to
hav erenewed old acquaintances
here.
While driving some fancy imported stock from Ashcroft last
Tuesday J. Smith, Jr., of Dog
creek had the misfortune to lose
them in a very peculiar manner.
They broke through a gate about
two miles from town and in some
unaccountable way rolled down a
bluff or a steep hill with the result that four were killed outright and two at last report were
not expected to recover.
J. V. Devey of Pemberton Portage, arrived in town from the
coast this week on his way to the
Portage. Mr. Devey is an Old
Country doctor from Durham,
and says that he came here first
to see a ranch he had bought at
the Portage, he found the climate
suited him so well, that after
making a return trip to the Old
Land to settle a busines transaction, he decided that this was the
place for him to settle in.
,  Mr. Daunt, Dominion constable
was in town this week.
Four more claims have been
staked near the Broken Hill mine
on Bridge river.
Mr. and Mrs. A. F. Noel leave
tomorrow on a shooting expedition.
The auto traffic between Seaton Lake and Lillooet is going
strong these days.
Tennis is the order of the day,
the Bell Court is occupied practically all the time.

this week and states that all is
O. K. around his ranch, also that
everything in general is coming
along fine.
A regretable accident occurred
here yesterday to Mrs. Stanley
Marshall. While she was handling a 22 rifle, it went off, the
bullet passing through the fleshy
part of her hand, between the
thumb and finger. She was attended to at the hospital

The first hunting party to arrive this season is Mr. Charles

eight weeks hunting grizzly bear
on the South Fork of Bridge
river. Henry Schwartz is his

expocted to arrive tomorrow from
victoria. They also will hunt for
bruin, near Duffy lake, at the
head of Cayoosh creek, with
Frank Gott as guide.
New Governor - General Of
Canada—Prince Alexander of Teck
London, May 7.—It is officially
announced to - day that Prince
Alexander of Teck, third son of
the late Duke of Teck, is to succeed the Duke of Connaught as
Governor-General of Canada.
The Daily Express says:
Canada is losing a great man,
but finds a worthy successor.
The Morning Post says:
"Both the Dominion and the
advisors of the crown will be congratulated upon the admirable
selection of Prince Alexander as
Governor-General of Canada. The
Canadian people, whether French
or British descent, have the Imperial tradition, and now the tradition of royalty is so well established in Canada it would have
been nothing short of a mistake
in Imperial statesmanship if it
had been broken."
Baseball Game
A rather exciting game of base
ball occurred here last week between the Portage nine and the
Headquarters, which resulted in
a win for the Portagers by 6-5.
The game at the start was a tame
affair, the headquarters having 2
nil at the 5th. In the seventh J.
Russel, for the Portage, hit into
the tall timbers, getting 2nd and
bringing in 3rd, but 2nd was run
out, however, before the inning
closed it was 2 all. The game
then see sawed until, after some
tall hitting by J. Williams the
score was 5 all at the close of the
8th. The Headquarters then batted but failed to score. The Portagers then went in, eventually
there were two down, one on the
base, and Joe to bat, he made a
hit, the man on the base run in.
It was a good game and credit
is due all concerned for the able
way they played.
Wedding
What was expected to have
been a quiet wedding, took place
last Monday afternoon at the
Loring ranch, Lytton road, when
Bessie Loring and Geo. Blue, constable of Spencers Bridge, were
united in marriage. The wedding was to have been a very
quiet affair, so everything was
kept quiet, but, somehow the
news got out, with the result,
everybody that could, turned out
with the local band to give the
happy couple a good send off.
The Prospector joins with their
many friends in wishing them a
happy and prosperous wedded
life.
Empire District
Crops and ranches in our district are looking fine. Everybody
to make things match are feeling
good.
James Dickey's thoroughbred
horse, Breasty, has been very ill
but is now on the high road to
recovery.
Everything at the Black Hill
ranch is looking fine.
Dougal McDonald is reaping a
harves of lumber from the Fraser
river. The crops on his ranch
are in fine condition, and are also
a credit to the famous Fraser river valley.
Lumber Jack Logan has been
at last located. He is at present
engaged in the peaceful occupation of building fence for the
Empire Valley ranch.
A. B. Ritchie is doing some
good work with the rope, in the
ranch of the Empire Valley De-
velopement Company. Head,
fore or hind leg throw, he is
Johnny on the spot.
C. W. McFee arrived back at
the Empire Valley Developement
Company ranch, of which he is
the manager, from a business trip
to-the city.
It is reported that Mr. Stobie
of the Gange ranch is seriously
ill wiih pheumonia. We sincerely hope that Mr. Stobie will make
a quick recovery.
10,000 Immigrants
Reports have it that navigation has opened up with a rush
of immigrants, no less than ten
thousand having arrived so far
by Quebec alone and half of these
in twenty four hours in seven
different steamers. Two thousand of these are booked for the
west. We wonder whether Mr.
Lloyd George is to blame for this
condition of things, or whether
someone is getting a "rake off"
from it. THE PROSPECTOR

WATER NOTICE
The condition of mining inter-
sts in Lillooet and district is of
vital importance to this cummu-
nity. During the past few years
conditions throughout the district have remained practically
the same, but the outlook for the
future is much brighter justifying the statement that a new and
prosperous area is about to open
up, and that before long, old
times will come back once more
bringing with them the capital
wherewith natural resources may
be developed.
The great drawback to the development of mining in this district has been the cost of transportation supplies, this, however,
will shortly be overcome by the
completion of the P. G. E. railway. Then, from present indications, things will begin to move.
President Jonathan Rogers, of
Ihe Vancouver Eoard of Trade,
said that when he was in conference with Sir Richard McBride
in Victoria, he suggested that
steps be taken to stop wildcating
of British Columbia promotions in
London. The unloading on the
British public of worthless propositions, he said, cannot but
have ill effects upon legitimate
propositions. The premier was
agreed with Mr. Rogers and it is
likely as the outcome of this interview that machinery will be
set in motion to put a stop to
considerable wildcatting. Let
ns hope that the steps taken, and
the machinery put in motion,
will have a deadly effect on all
wildcatting. There is absolutely no need for wildcatting in this
province and country of ours,
therefor, let us, one and al1, do
our utmost to stamp it out.
Five new bills are on the order
sheet in the House at Ottawa this
week.
The first of these will amend
the Crininal Code by providing
an amendment with regard to
to knowingly false advertising,
making this a criminal offence
and providing penalties. This
has partly arisen out of various
schemes in the province of Quebec to which attention has been
called in the House.

pi-oduced a railway system permitting a speed of 300 miles an
hour. The cars are made of
steel with an alluminum base.
This metal, suffering magnetic
repulsion by electric magnets,
which are situated under the
track, holds the cars suspended
in the air. A series of solenoids
along the track, which are successively magnetized, pull the
suspended car at a terrific speed.
This type of car is intended for
goods and mail traffic, Bachelat
contending that the cost of carrying for 300 miles was a cent
per pound. The cost of laying
the track would be $25,000 a mile
plus $60,000 for power-houses at
each hundred miles. The passenger cars would be fitted with
propellers and motors, similar to
aeroplanes.
Experiments with large sized
models have so impressed railway experts that Bachelat was
offered the use of a circuit within five miles of London to try and
practically test the invention,
which represents twenty years
of experiments.
This may seem madness to
some and blasphemy to others,
but unless the expectations are
falsified, a new era has begun.
