Sir Richard McBride
And Lillooet District
LILLOOET,   B. C, FRIDAY,   MAY 29, 1914.
$2 PER YEAR
LOCAL AND GENERAL ITEMS.
Sir Richard McBride in the
House of Parliament, Victoria, B.C., recently made
the following statement:
"I am pleased to be able
to tell the house that from
reports, which we have received from government engineers and others, the sections of the Lillooet district
now being prospected, or in
course of developement give
promise of excellent results
in the near future. Heretofore; because of the indifferent transportation, it has
been almost impossible to
provide mining machinery at
a cost which was not prohibitive, but once this mining
machinery is able to be got
into the country at a moderate cost, we will soon see
there the rapid development
of many a promising property. I am satisfied that the
early completion of the Vancouver & Howe Sound road,
will be coincident with the
flowering up of a new life in
that section of the province,
and that it wiil presently
spring in prominence as worthy of a high place in the
mineral zone of British Columbia. I am mindful of the
fact that the responsible office I hold, as minister of
mines, must make me more
than Careful in anything I
may say in regard to the
mining industry, but I wish
to say that I speak advisedly
because of my own intimacy
with the district, and from
reports which I have had
sent to me by independent
explorers and miners from
;ill of these sources I am satisfied that there is a wonderful future assured for Lillooet, both as a placer gold-
dredging proposition and as
a lode-mining centre."
New Paper
We received this week, for the
first time, a copy of the Squamish
Standard. It is not the first issue of the paper, but it is the
first one we have received. It is
eight weeks old and is a newsy,
up-to-date four page sheet, and
is a credit to the publisher—Mr.
A. R. Powell. The "Prospector"
wishes the Standard a successful
career, in the rising city of
I quamish.
Miss Kinder of Seaton lake,
was in town visiting friends this
week.
Dan Hurley returned Wednesday from Victoria, where he has
been on business for the past few
days.
F. Aikin Chief of Provincial
police for Cariboo, was in town
this week, and left for the north
yesterday.
F. M. Brophy of the Gent's
Furnishing store, left this week
on a combined business and pleasure trip to Quesnel.
Mr. Cronin, contractor, P. G.
E. railway, came in from the
Portage and reports the general
construction being pushed along
at a good pace.
C. L. Copp accompanied by W.
Grady, arrived in Lillooet yesterday from the coast. They are
going into the hills on a combined
business and pleasure trip.
Joe Shuster arrived in Lillooet
this week from his mineral claims
on Bridge river, he reports everything coming along alright in the
district. He returned to camp,
with his faithful collie "Casey."
J. H. Halpin, superintendent
of bridge construction for P. G.
E., was in town this week. He
stated that the bridge camp at
Fraser River Bridge was closed
down, as they could do no more
work on the bridge till fall, on
account of the high water.
Jack Mellot, of Anderson lake,
was in Lillooet this week; he had
with him some good looking ore
from off one of his claims round
the lake. He recorded some
claims the left for the seat of his
strike.
R. T. Slocombe of Lillooet, paid
a flying visit to the Horse Shoe
Bend this week. He was conducted over the property by Mr.
Skertchley, chief mining engineer, and expresses himself as being 'more than pleased with what
he saw,' and, in his opinion the
mine has a good future. He will
watch, with considerable interest
the development of the proposition.
A social and dance took place
in the Santini Hall on Wednesday
evening last. About twenty couples wei-e present and a very
pleasant and enjoyable evening
was spent, all remarking that it
was good to have been there. We
hear there is to be another dance
in the near fulure.
School Picnic
The Sunday school picnic to the
dam turned out to be a real good
one. About thirty children were
present, the day was all that
could have been desired, and a
regular old fashioned picnic took
place. One of those kind where
everybody goes to enjoy themselves, and not to take stock of
what the other person is wearing
or doing. The children, while
being neatly, prettily and cleanly
dressed, were not uncomfortably
dressed, which reflected credit
on the judgement of their mothers.
Considerable credit is due to
Mrs. and Mr. J. Bell, and Mr.
Sutherns for the able way in
which they made the party a general success. Mr. Sutherns is an
Old Country Scout master, and
has those facinating little ways
that the children like so well.
All kinds of goody goodies appeared on the table, and what
with ice cream, nuts, oranges,
cakes, etc, the children had the
time of their lives.
Horse Shoe Bend
NOTICE
A meeting is called for 8.30
Saturday evening, in the Excelsior Hotel, to consider the programme for July 1.
Joe Russell left on Wednesday
for his claim adjoining the broken hill.
W. E. Riley was in town this
week; he is doing some extensive
improvements to his ranch on
the Fraser river.
Bill Sutherland, who has been
working on the "Why Not" mineral claim, on Bridge river, arrived in town this week and reported everybody and everything
doing and looking well.
A. G. Rebagliati, storekeeper
at Lytton, came into Lillooet this
week on a combined business and
pleasure trip. It is rumored he
is going to open a general store
here.
H. Blurton, new game warden,
departed this week for the Empire Valley. It is rumored that
there are violations of the game
laws being enacted in that locality.
Lieut. Pilcher and Mrs. Pilcher
arrived in Lillooet from England,
on an extended hunting trip.
They will hunt bear at the head
of Cayoosh creek near the Duffy
lake. Frank Gott is their guide
for the trip,
G. E Keen, of Anderson lake,
'was in town this week on business. He is in partnership with
Alex Phair, with the passenger
boat on Anderson lake, and reports everything looking good,
also that the crops are coming
along first rate.
There has been considerable
commotion here for the past week
on account of the water supply,
first it became unfit for use, then
it ceased to appear at all. We
are thankful that this morning it
is considerably better both in
color and force. It is rumored
that we are to have a cement
tank instead of the present one.
in the near future.
The Lillooet (B. C. ) Mining
Company, Limited, capitalized in
London, Eng., at £125,000 and
whose officers are men of note,
namely:- H. G. Hardy, F.C.I.S.
Hon. L. O'Brien, Capt. Johnston
Sterling, T. R. Hollingworth,
J. T. Rigg, F. Burton, Nelson
Sharpies, and J. A. Skertchley,
F.R.G.S., are the company who
are working the Horse Shoe Bend
on Bridge river.
Mr. Skertecley, director and
manager of the operations here,
assisted by J. T. Rigg and' T. R.
are rushing the work on the
property, the Horse Shoe bend.
Mr. Skertechley, is very optomis-
tic about the property, and to
use a local phrase, says ' 'he has
got the goods!" He should know
if anybody should, as he has had
world wide experience.
The company is not depending
on local capital as they have considerable English capital with
them. Rigg and Hollingworth
have been in town packing supplies for the camp in a very determined way that has left the
impression that they had the
knowledge that they were going
after something good.
Boat Excursion
A party of excursionists left
town last Sunday morning for
the Portage. The party consisted of about thirty adult persons,
they travelled by autos to Seaton
lake, thence by steamer, under
Captain Cox, to the Portage,
where they were heartily welcomed by the residents. During
the afternoon a football match
was played, between the Portage
eleven and the Lillooetites, which
resulted in a win for the Portage
team. Everybody reports having spent a very enjoyable day.
Lytton Dance
A social and dance took place
in the Town Hall, Lytton last
Wednesday. There were about
twenty five couples present and
a very enjoyable evening was
spent. The refreshments were,
to use the phrase we overheard,
"very fine." The dance broke
up early, and it was a tired but
withall a happy crowd who arrived at their respective homes
in the wee small hours of the
morning.
Anglican Church
"The old order changeth, yielding place to new," and so it is
that after thirteen years of useful service the old hangings have
been removed from the St Mary's
church, and new ones substituted in their place.
The Reredos at the back of the
Altar has been re-covered, a new
frontal and super-frontal have
been placed upon the altar, new
curtains also being fitted on the
sides of the altar and at the entrance to the vestry.
A frontal has also been supplied to the reading desk, and a
corner for the lectern, and book
marks for the bible and prayer
book have been added. The matting in the aisles has had its
frayed edges bound with cloth
giving it a much improved appearance. This has been done by
a few who are interested in
church affairs. Will some one
come forward now and present a
new prayer book for the reading
desk? This is badly needed and
with this addition, the church
will be able to take its place as
being a little more fitted to be
"A House of God."
Football
There will be football match on
the local ground this week. This
is the first home match of the
season arid the team will be
selected from the following players—Anderson, Bricknell, Craig,
Cavani, Clarke, Fitzgerald, Henderson, Hughes, Hurley, LeMare,
Sandys, Slocombe, Sutherns, and
Tosh.
Practice will take place tonight
at 7 oclock. Everybody interested in football cordially invited
to attend.
Accident on Lytton Road
A regretable accident occurred
on the Lytton road yesterday afternoon. Whilst Lee Harrison,
was making a sharp turn, near
the half-way house, his wagon
turned over, burying him beneath
it. He was brought to the hospital where he lies in a precarious
condition. THE PROSPECTOR

Neglected for years, Lillooet is
again to come into its own as one
of the most favored sections of
British Columbia—Canada's most
favored province. Not only will
the coming of the Pacific Great
Eastern railway open up the agricultural resources of the country but the line will also provide
an outlet for the immense mineral wealth of the district, especially in the transportation of base
ores.
Realizing this, considerable attention is being paid by outside
capital to Bridge river and other
mining sections of the locality.
Unheralded emissaries of British and Eastern capital have been
steadily passing through the town
during the past few weeks, arriving one day and leaving on
horseback for the hills the following dawn. In a few days
they return, travel-stained and
taciturn, a hunch of rocks in a
piece of canvas or an old flour
sack, the only evidence of their
mission.
From information that leaks
out from time to time, however,
it is evident that several large
concerns, of world-wide repute
in mining circles, are contemplating local investment and deve'-
opement. This, coupled with the
present revival of mining affairs
generally and based on the foundation of the undoubted wealth of
Ihe district, especially the Bridge
river section, with its rich free
milling ore. is sufficient to paint
the future in tints of rosy hue.—
Province.
Some interesting experiments
have heen made with ancient
medals, vases and so forth of
lead that are gradually disintegrating in the museum of Clu-
ny. After a number of years
they fall into dust. The cause,
it is thought, lies in the presence
of minute quantities of saline
matter with which the objects
have become impregnated during
their long burial in the soil or under water. These microscopic
impurities play the part of bacteria and microbes in living bodies. In other words the lead is
"sick" and unless the noxious
matter can be removed will inevitably perish. Curiously enough
it is found that if traces of salt
ap* imparted to a fresh mass of
lead it. is attacked and eventually
falls to pieces like the objects in
the museum at Cluny.
The news from Petersburg is
of the dismissal of the appeal of
the man who was sentenced to a
year's fortress imprisonment for
wearing his hat during the playing of his National anthem. This
hat trick is intricate etiquette!
One recalls, for instance, those
Sussex dames who raised their
bonnets to Richard Jefferies as
he wandered through their village. And Jefferies, too, noted
an  even   greater  politeness  as
practiced with the hat by a man
of the soil who found himself in
the hunting-field with the Prince
of Wales. He raised his hat with
both hands, and blushed at the
graceful recognition of the homage. The plight of Hooker, too,
is noted by his biographer. For
the "Judicious" one, wrote Izaak
Walton, was of so '"mild and
humble a nature that his poor
clerk and he did never talk but
with both their hats on, or both
off, at the the same time.

John Roderick MacIntyre,
a30 Applicant. THE PROSPECTOR
Eastern Firms Buying Lumber in B. C.
An order of 5,500,000 feet of
lumber, required for a new dock
in Quebec, has been placed with
Vancouver lumbering firms. The
dock is being built for the Dominion government by N. P. &
J. T. Davis, who placed the order
for the lumber with Mason, Gordon & Company, of Montreal.
Mr. Gordon came to Vancouver
to personally place the orders
with the British Columbia firms.
Hitherto the eastern contracting
firms have placed their orders
with firms in the United States.
Indications are that the future
will find eastern firms turning to
the west more and more for their
supplies. Vancouver island firms
have secured a large order for
Toronto harbor work.

hope you haven't been very bad.
Hobby—Oh no; just comfortable.
