THE
PROSPECTOR.

LILLOOET, B. C, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 19, 1900.

WHAT ONLOOKER THINKS.
The expected dissolution of the Canadian parliament has taken place and
from now till the evening of November
7th, we shall hear nothing but politics.
Tbe Laurier government was called to
power on June 23rd, 1896, and it is now
for the electors oi Canada to say whether
tbat government, by its deeds, during
the years of its power, is worthy of an-
other term of office. In this matter
every voter should think for himself.
Every man knows or should know
what legislation the government has introduced. If he considers this legislation good his duty is to vote for the government; it he considers it bad it is as
much bis duty to vote against it.
But his judgment should not be hampered by partv prejudices. Surely we
have passed beyond tbe days when a
man voted Grit because his great .rand-
father was a Grit or when a man voted
Tory because tbe partv leaders told him
to. This is an enlightened age and we
have a poor opinion of the man who cannot reason these things for himself, and
wbo when he has arrived at a conscientious conclusion, is not man enough to
vote accordingly, regardless of party dictates.
As to what view Onlooker holds re
garding politics, is a matter of no importance. He hasn't enough presumption to imagine tbat tbey would convert
anyone, and if he bad would not attempt
it, aa a man's vote is purely a piece of
personal property which he has a right
to dispose of as he pleases.
Parties are very good things, indispensable, we think to good government, but
the fact must not be lost sight of that
parties are only a means of government
and not the end. If a man vote Liberal
or Conservative as the case may be, his
vote should be tbe result of an honest
conviction that the party he supports
Will do the most for the welfare of the
country as a whole, Onlooker.
Preparing for War.
London, Oct. 12.—The Moscow correspondent of the Standard attaches significance to a speech made by the Russian
general in command at Wilna to some
troops tbat had been ordered to China,
but were recalled from Odessa on the
very eve of sailing. He Bays tbat the
general, in addressing the men, made
this explanation: "Tbe Czar decided
that it was necessary to bring you back
to Wilna so that you might be ready
here to face a foe we shall be ordered to
meet,"
The correspondent add* that the foe
binted at can only be Germany.
FROn LYTTON.
George Earle, son of T. G. Earle, died
laat Saturday at his fathers home, aged
29 yean. He was buried Monday and
Mr. Thomas Seward, in the absence
of the clergyman, read the burial service
which was very impressive.
Mr. J. H. Anthony and his sister Miss
Anthony left last Monday on a visit to
their home in England. They expect to
be absent about three months. Mr.
Bobson is attending to the business during Mr. Anthony's absence.
Mr. and Mrs. Pearson are visiting
friends at Victoria.
The C. P. B. mason gang will finish a
large arch culvert about five miles east
of here about tbe end of this month. It
will cost about $15,000 when finished
and will never be seen by passers-by.
This is an instance of the way the C P.B.
company are making a permanent road.
During the summer 500 extra men, outside of the regular employees were engaged 'between Kamloops and Vancouver.
The government road gang have
finished work on the Lytton-Lillooet
road and are doing some slight repairs
to the road between Lytton and Kanaka
bar.
Tbe Cobbledick dredging scow is working away night aud day and from reports are doing very well.

In our account of the meeting organizing a Liberal-Conservative association at

Tbe Bond on the Lorne and Woodchuck Group
of Mineral Claim* Will be Taken up by an
English Syndicate November ist. /Ir. J.
Dunlop of Lillooet, is Making Final Arrangements for th* Deal. Work Will Commence as Soon as Possible Developing the
Properties Hore Thoroughly.
Mr. John Dunlop this week received
word from the representatives of the
English syndicate who have the bond on
the Lorne and Woodchuck group of
claims on Cadwallader, in the Bridge
Biver district, that the syndicate have
the fund: in the bank readv for the first
payment, which will be on November
1st. With the exception of a little
alteration in the original agreement the
deal is as well as completed, the owners
being satisfied to mttke any concessions
reasonable to the syndicate who are
taking tbe property." Mr. Dunlop left
Tuesday morning for the mines to consult the owners and make tbe necessary
arrangements with them for the fim
payment. The Lorne group of claims
have been worked the • past two seasons
with arrastras and the owners secured
in the neighborhood of $22,000 as the
result of their labors, only putting
through a little more than a ton of rock
per day. Tbe Woodchuck people built
an arrartra this spring and succeeded in
doing very well the time the arrastra
was run.
Tlie syndicate who has now a bond on
the property, will as soon as possible
commence development work on a large
scale on both of these properties opening
them up and preparing to install the
necessary machinery for working the
ore, and will next season be ready for
active operations. The securing of these
properties by this syndicate is the
largest deal made in this section. The
price being $150,000 for the Lorne group
and $75,000 for the Woodchuck, amounting to $225,000 in all. Lillooet can
congratulate itself on securing a
strong syndicate to open up its best
properties aud make mines of them and
tbe fact that this syndicate having unlimited capital to invest, before long
number of other claims adjoining will
be brought into its concessions.
Mr. Dunlop wbo bas the deal in charge
in Lillooet, is expected to return tomorrow from the mines and in a very
short time full particulars will be given
in connection with tbe deal. Mr. Dunlop has worked bard to induce capital
to take hold of Bridge Biver properties
and it is source of satisfaction to the
people of Lillooet that he bas
been instrumential in bringing such a
strong syndicate to the district to
operate and develop the mineral
properties.
with another cleanup from the arrastra
running on tbe property.
During the past season of seven
months about eleven men have been
employed on the mine and arrastras.
About four and half months run was
bad with the arrastras, the cleanups
averaging about $3,000 per month,
cleanups being made weekly and for
the season the cleanup will amount to
about $15,000. One of the arrastras was
cleaned up thoroughly and the other
two will be gone through in the next
week or so, the bottoms being taken up,
as during the summer tbey were only
partially cleaned up.
During tbe present season two new
arrastras were built, making three on
the claims. The development on the
mine showed it up to better advantage
at every point worked. On No. 1 and
No. 2 tunnels 100 feet was run on eacb,
and on No. 3, 70 feet all showing a
ledge of three feet in width.
Tbe Lorne is now under bond to a
English syndicate and will be taken up
the first of the month.
Mr. Hurley reports the Bridge Biver
district as looking good and the future
brighter than ever.
Tbe new trail is quite a help to the
country and the contractors are doing
good work.
At tbe Bend'Or mines a new strike
was made on the property and some fine
ore was exhibited. At Tyauchton C. W.
Wray is repairing the trail and putting
it in first class shape near this point.
Mr. Hurley says there were beaver
signs, along the trail near Tyauchton
and were noticeable on tbe trees
nearby.
MURDER THE VERDICT.
Ed. Cairns who has been doing assessment work on the Royal mineral claim
near the Lorne group returned to town
this week having completed the work.
Mr. Cairns reports the Bridge Biver
country as looking prosperous.
THE LORNE QROUP.
Mr. D. Hurley one of tbe principal
owners in the Lorne group of claims on
Cadwallader returned to town Monday,
E. J. Taylor one of the owners in the
Woodchuck arrived in town this week
after the seasons work. He will remain
in town until the deal which is now on
for the Woodchuck to the English syndi-
cote is completed the first payment
which will be made tbe first of the
month.     	
'The Anderson Lake Mining Company
on McGillivray creek, in chargeof the
Brett Bros, the original owners made a
cleanup last week, having run the mill
for twenty days averaging about fifteen
tons daily and as a result cleaned up
about $1,000. The mill is running again
and development work on the mine
continues and a months run will be
made before another cleanup, which
will be considerable better than tbe
last run.
The coroner's jury who went to the
Mission last Saturday to hold an inquest
on the body of Julia Ann, tbe Indian
girl wbo was found dead in the Bridge
River district, apparently hanged by the
neck, after due deliberation brought in
a verdict oi murder.
Dr. Clarke, tbe coroner, and tbe foi-
lewing jurors: E. S. Peters, George Do-
herty, William Seaton, W. H. Miller,
George D. Bell and P. W. McKunzie left
Saturday noon for the Mission, and after
examining the body of the deceased
and hearing the evidence of the father,
brought in tbe above verdict.
Dr. Sanson was sent up to the Mission
on Monday and had the body exhumed
and held a post mortem, his report now
being in the hands of the government.
The place of the death waa near the
Ida May cabin between tbat and the
Bend'Or Mines and a short distance
from the trail. The deceased when
found by her father waB kneeling on one
knee with arms folded with the rope
around her neck and tied to tbe limb of
a tree. The rope was the one used for
tying her horse and was only about four
feet in length. Her horse was found a
short distance from the scene of the
death with the riding apparatus in place.
Tbe girl had been missing for several
days before being tound and several parties had been looking for her, when her
fathei, Hunter Jack, came across her
and notified tbe different camps.
Notwithstanding the verdict of the
jury, a difference of opinion prevails
among the sages of Lillooet regarding
the death of the girl, many are theories
put forth to the general public. Some
say it was a clear case of suicide, while
others declare it was murder without a
doubt. The opinion of the Bridge Biver
residents, who were in that vicinity at
tbe time say every indication
points to Buicide, aa the deceased made
threats and told her sister when leaving
her that she would never see her again.
The girl had been drinking heavily for
some time and was more or less intoxi-
catied when last seen alive.
The probability is that after the different reports are looked into, the investigation will cease and the suicide version will be taken as correct.
License Inspector.
Clinton Assiz*.
Webber, formerly express and station
agent at Spences Bridge, watt tried before Chief Justice MeColl at the Clinton
assize last Friday for stealing a quantity
of gold dust which was in his care, and
was sentenced to twenty-one months in
New .Westminster jail. He pleaded
guilty on tbe advice of his counsel and
asked for mercy from the court,

For the East Riding of Lillooet district the following are the license commissioners: William Saul, The Mound;
William Walker, Bonaparte; and
William Boyd, 70-Mile House; with constable John McMillan, Clinton as chief

The Liberals are disagreeing about Mr.
Hugh John McDonald, too. The Tartean
coterie of the east declare tbat he is a
light weight. Mr. Greenway, who has
been in tbe ring with him, holds him to
be the Bob Fitzsimmons of the west,—

RIC. A. TRASER. Editor and Proprietor.
FRIDAY. OCTOBER 19, 1900.
The past seaton for Lillooet dietrici
has not been as bright as was expected
in the early spring, but work has beei.
going steadily on in different sections of
the district to advantage and next season
should see a difference in tbe mines and
all kinds of business. Heretofore very
little outside capital bas developed any
of tbe mining properties until thiB season,
when three or four companies have
taken hold of quartz and placer claims
and have been busy preparing for work,
erecting mills, tramway, ditches etc.
All the properties taken hold of have
good promise and the men in charge are
going about the work quietly and will
no doubt make a success of their labors.
A strong Fnglish syndicate will take
hold of Bridge River quartz claims this
fall, when a first payment of a quarter
million dollars will be distributed
amongst the owners of tbe claims.
Capital is gradually being convinced
that in Lillooet district there are a number of mineral claims, which can be
secured, and worked to advantage and
the coming season there will be lepre-
sentatives ot several companies seeking
free gold properties. Lillooet district
has claims of all descriptions: placer,
quartz, copper, galena and almost anything an investor may wish and with
better transportation facilities will all
be worked on a larger scale than at
present.
A. H. McNeill the conservative candidate for this district is now touring tbe
Boundary creek district and is being
received with enthusiasm. It is expected tbat he will visit this action in
the course of a few weeks and will discuss tbe political situation and put his
views before tbe electorate. Mr. Mac
neill ie a strong candidate and bis
election is assured without a doubt. The
conservative party will sweep the country from sea to sea this'election and the
country will again progress under conservative rule.
The coroner'p jury on Saturday brought
in a verdict of murder in the case of tbe
Indian girl who was found dead on Cad-
wallaaer creek two weeks ago. An investigation is being made, but so far
as we can learn there is no clue to the
guilty partv or parties. In the course of
a few days more will be known of the
case.	
The date of the elections for Yale-
Cariboo district has been set by by Returning Officer McDonald for Wednesday, November 2lBt, two weeks later

district will also have a later date.
A three-cornered fight in the election
contest will take place in this district:
A. H. Macneill, conservative; W. A.
Gailiher, liberal and 0. Foley labor.
Mr. Macneill has decidedly the beat of
the contest.
The main street of Lillooet is not in
th* best of shape and could be made a
good deal cleaner than what it ia at
present.

Old man Squilljugs had been reading
one of thoBe articles you see in the Grit
papers now-a-days, where the able
editor shows how the Laurier Government is saving money tor the country by
spending ten million a year more than
the Conservatives, and how it is possible
for Reformers to pile up big surpluses
every year at the same time they are
running the country every year deeper
in debt, "Well," said the old man, reflectively "thev say that figures can't lie,
but its really remarkable sometimes the
way liars can figure,"—Sarnia "Canadian."       	
A Third Candidate.
Delegates from the various labor
organizations of Kootenay met last week
in Nelson, and at a convention which
lasted for two days they decided to form
a party under tbe name of tbe Independent-Labor party, and to put up a candidate in this constituency of Yale-
Kootenay-Cariboo.
Tbe nomination was at first tendered
to James Wilkes, of Nelson, but, as he
had opposed tbe introduction of a Labor
candidate into the campaign at this time,
he refused it, and it was then offered to
Christopher Foly, a working miner of
Rossland, by whom it was accepted.
The Hotel Vancouver is to be torn,

and appointments. The new hot6l will
contain twice as many rooms as at
present, or about 250, and a handsome
ball room is to be provided for in the
plans.       	
The jury in the Dougan case at Nanaimo. deliberated three hours before returning a verdict of guilty with a strong
recommendation to mercy. Dougan
was operator on the E. A N. Railway
and owing to his neglect caused wreck of
trains with loss of life. He was sentenced to nine months imprisonment.
W. J. McCusker an employee of the
Hastings Sawmill at Vancouver who
was arrested a few weeks ago for
appropriating funds of tbe company was
sentenced for four years imprisonment
in the penitentiary.
The total number of voters on the
list for Yalc-Kootenay-Oariboo is something over 18,000. How many of these
can the Independent-Labor party hope
to secure?

It Touches The Spot.
A British temperance journal has been
publishing a prescription lor "a substitute for brandy" in cases of faintness
and severe pains. It consists of "equal
parts of the strongest tincture of ginger,
sol volatile and chloric ether," Temperance people have bad the recipe printed
on cards and distributed with the injunction, "pass it on." The Lancet cruelly
points out that brandy usually contains
about fifty per cent of alcohol, whereas
the temperance ingredients, the tincture
of ginger, is essentially pure alcohol, the
sol volatile contains alcohol in the proportion of six parts out of nine and a
half, and tiie chloric ether bas 95 per
cent of alcohol. The mixture, therefore,
contains eighty-three percent of alcohol,
compared to fifty per cent in brandy,
and is, tbe Lancet has no doubt, extremely efficacious.
The Montreal "Star" says: Announcement is made of the engagement of Miss
C. Maude Cameron, daughter of A. C.
Cameron, Cornwall, to Mr. Denis Murphy, M.L.A., barrister of Ashcroft B. 0„
