Annual Report of Lillooet
Mining Division
(Report of Minister of Mines)
British Gunners and Troops
Heroic All Along The Line
Argyle Fraction — This claim |
owned by Mark Eagleson, is located easterly from and adjoining
the Lorne group. During my
visit the annual assessment-work
was being done on this claim, and
an effort was being made to remove by ground - sluicing the
heavy overburden and cross channel the ground with a deep trench
This work exposed the contact
between the argillities and diorite
about 1.500 feet from the workings on the King lode of the
Lorne property. As there is but
little natural exposure of "rock
in place" on the claim, long crosscut trenches are absolutely necessary to prospect the ground,
AI ham bra
This claim is situated east of
and adjoining the Woodchuck
claim. It was acquired by a New
York syndicate in 1901, when development work was carried on
for some months, several thousands of dollars expended, and the
claim Crown granted. Since then
I am informed the head of the
syndicate has died and the property has remained idle.
The ore outcrops in a bold precipitous bluff, and the main working consists of an adit drift, a-
bcut 250 feet in length, with its
portal about 100 feet lower than
the outcrop. This height of backs
increased as work progressed
along the adit and at the face,
because the bluff or ridge under
which it is driven increases in
elevation quite rapidly in the
north easterly direction in which
the adit was driven. The quartz
vein followed by the drift is a
very strong one, from 12 inches
to five feet in width, with well-
defined walls and several inches
of gouge between the ore and
each wall; the strike is true N.
75* E. and dip vertical. At the
face the vein has pinched to G
inches in width. A sample a-
cross G inches of ore in the face
of the adit assays: gold, $4; silver, trace, to the ton.
Several other openings of minor importance have been made
on this claim, evidently during a
search for other veins, and while
ore is exposed in some of these,
the work has not been carried
far enough to demonstrate any
material facts.
Woodchuck
On nearly the same level as the
top of the ore-bins, or about 100
feet lower than the adit just
mentioned, work has been started on the main adit referred to
earlier in this report. This has
been driven in diorite country-
rock 230 feet, but not yet progressed far enough to expose any
of the veins, although, apparently, such should be done within a
continued on page two
With regard to the atrocities at
the from, the following speaks
for itself: —
Guelph, Ont. Sept 30—James
Petit of York road Guelph, received a letter today from an aunt
in Stratford Terrace, England.
One paragraph of the letter states
"We have in our house to care
for a little Belgian girl aged 8
who had both hands chopped off
by German soldiers. Her brother
a little younger, was mutilated so |
as he would never be able to use
a rifle."
TO-MGHT
Germans Shoot Prisoners and
Wounded Will They.
A reuter despatch from Paris
says— Thirty gunners of the
British field artillery have fallen
killed or wounded. Knowing they
were going to almost certain
death, they called out, Good-bye
fellows to their comrades in the
reserve line. Two minutes later
every man was out of action.
Thirty more went to the front
with the same farewell greeting.
The German shells were falling
thickly behind the battery and
killed or wounded every man serving the guns. Eventually the
persistence and accuracy of the
British fire proved effective, and
the British infantry took the po
sition at the point of the bayonet
According to a wounded German officer, the British cavalry
are devils, they charge standing
up in shortened stirrups and that
the swing of their sabres beheaded their enemies. They handled
their horses like ponies on a polo
field.
The Germans are allowing the
people to feed and assist the
French, but not the British —
what more honor could we wish.
The Zoua v es are covering themselves with glory. In brief the
report is as follows— The French
under tremendous pressure were
compelled to recede and left 8 3-
inch guns to the enemy. The
Zouaves begged to be allowed to
retake the position. The charge
was sounded, the men charged,
and although a large number fell
it seemed as if there were only a
few flashes before the .enemy
broke and the guns were taken
and turned on the fleeing enemy.
King George on a visit to the
London Hospital, asked again
why such terrible slaughter a-
mong the British officers. The
replies show that the are too keen
upon leadership and look-out to
be bothered with their own safety-
Fierce fighting is in progress
near Antwerp, the Germans are
reported to have reinforced seig-
ers with naval men, so that in
should they be successful in their
attempt to take Antwerp, they
will be able to use them from that
quarter to attack the British
fleet in the North sea.
The Italians are reported to
have lost two vessel from mines.
SOCIAL and DANCE
Everything points to the certainty that the above social
will be a most enjoyable entertainment.
The committee in charge
have done all they could to
ensure that everything that
would add to the pleasure of

On the principle that every little helps, and many a mickle
makes a muckle, Mrs. H. A.
Christie's candy store proved a
great success last Saturday.
The Doctor gave his office for a
store which was very nicely
decorated and Mrs. Christie dispensed the good things, which
were of such a ra'/ishing and
toothsome nature, that the dimes
out of the small boys pockets
flew over the counter. A clean
sweep was made of everything,
nothing left, you might have
thought the Germans had been
there.
The financial result was most
satisfactory, an outlay of five
dollars and fifty cents brought in
some eighteen dollars, which sum
was handed over to the treasurer
for the War Fund.
A very excellent example for
other ladies to copy.

District
Forest Fires
Wednesday September 30 was
the last day of Fire season, and
ranchers and settlers may now
burn their slashings and debris
without first having to obtain a
permit from the local fire warden
The season has been one of
especial danger, owing to the prolonged drouth and extreme heat,
of the past summer months which
with the occasional strong winds
created a very critical fire hazard.
The Lillooet district has, however mantained an excellent record, and although 52 fires were
reported by Forest officials no
great damage was done. The
cost of fighting forest fires other
than that of the regular Forest
Guards was very light and out of
the 52 fires only 7 required extra
assistance to control, costing
$123.25, of the remaining 45, 7
were on the Right-of-way of the
P.G.E. Railway, and the balance
38 were controlled and extinguished by the Forest Guards
themselves. The following resume shews the causes and total
area burned over with the estimated damage to private property
Campers 24 ; Right-of-way 5 ;
Cigarettes 2 ; Carlessness 2 ;
Settlers 2; Unknown 14;
Smudge     1;     Engine 2:
Area burned over        1500 acres
Eestimate dam. pr'te prop. $1350
The Forest Protection Force
which is under the direct supervision of the District office at Lillooet consisted of 3 forest rangers
11 forest guards and 9 railway
patrolmen, who were called on to
protect an approximate a^ea of
some 14,000,000 acres and supervise the slashing and burning of
125 miles of railway construction.
Don't forget the Grand Social
and Dance to-night, in the Opera
House.
The total of the war fund to
date is $491.58.

Narrow Escape
Walter Bailey, freighter, while
endeavoring, Wednesday, to turn
round with a four-horse team and
empty freight waggon, had a
very narrow escape, Walter was
backing the waggon so as to enable him to make the turn in
the lane between the English
church and the school house
when one of the unexplainable
happenings occurred. The break
which worked a few seconds previously, refused to act, the four
horsed refused to hold the empty
waggon, which resulten in the
whole outfit being precipitated
down the twenty foot bank, the
waggon, luckily for Walter, lent
against the side of the barn in
the ravine, Walter fell between
the barn and the waggon and received only a slight injury to his
arm. With the exception of the
cutting of the harness and a
broken reach, very little damage
was done.
It would be a good thing, if we
should get any hard labour prisoners, to put them at work to
fill in this ravine, instead of sending them to Kamloops, and incidentally save traveling expenses. THE PROSPECTOR

Increasing Live Stock
The outbreak of the war
in Europe and the consequent
demand which is naturally to
be expected for increased
exports of meats, finds Canada in a very much denuded
condition as regards live
stock.
As a result of the removal
of the American tariff on cattle a heavy export trade developed to the south. In
some districts in eastern Canada, nearly everything has
been shipped out of the country, except dairy cows. This
export trade, together with
many farmers selling their
calves for veal, can have but
one result in Canada, viz: a
greater scarcity of meat than
at present exists, even in a
normal market.
The meat industry in Canada should not be allowed to
dwindle—rather, the production of hogs, sheep and cattle on Canadian farms should
be greatly increased. To obtain this increase does not
mean that farmers should devote their whole attention to
live stock. The majority _of
farmers will admit that with
very little extra effort and
expense they could increase
by several head the live stock
on their farms without in
any way interfering with
their present system of farm-
From reports to tne Commission of Conservation, the
present conditions indicate a
world-wide scarcity of live
slock, with little likelihood of
an overcrowded market for
many years to come. The
opportunity for Canadian
farmers is therefor apparent.
To take advantage of this,
farmers should save their
heifer calves to produce more
cattle, while the others may
be turned off, not as veal but
as beef.
Expert stockmen advise
that there are good times
ahead for those raising sheep
The high price of mutton and
of wool and the comparative
ease with which a flock of
sheep may be sustained upon
. land which is otherwise unsuitable for agriculture, suggests a great increase in the
number of sheep raised by
Canadian farmers.
Increased production in
hogs can be brought about
more quickly than in any
other class of live stock, and
consequently should receive
immediate attention.
Animal production on the
farm is desirable because it
increases the fertility and
crop-raising ability of the
soil. Good prices are sure
to be obtained for any surplus
which farmers will have to
sell on account of the inevitable shortage of supplies resulting from war .conditions
in Europe. These two conditions should be an incentive
to Canadian farmers to increase their live stock production. A little foresight
now, with modern method of
feeding, will make increased
production easily possible.—
Commission of Conservation.
Mining Report
comparatively short distance.
The mill was not being operated during may visit; in fact, all
work on the property had been
suspended for months. I presumed the reason for this being
that there had been no plant installed for collecting the concentrates, or even saving them or
the tailings for future treatment,
and the loss thereby would undoubtedly have been great. Direct cyanidation of this ore might
prove the most profitable method for treatment.
On the Woodchuck ground, in
addition to the main adit referred
to, there is an open-cut about 50
feet in length, 10 feet in width,
and 20 feet in depth, from which
the ore was minad and treated in
the 5-scamp mill, yielding, it is
reported, $1,500. In addition to
this work and the work described
by the Provincial Mineralogist in
his report for 1910, a cross-cut
adit has been driven to prospect
the ground, at an elevation of
3,625 feet, and with its portal
about 400 feet easterly from the
stamp-mill. This adit is about
200 feet in length, the first 90
feet close-timbered, the balance
driven through diorite, except
where four narrow quartz veins
have been cut, and at the face an
ore-body 10 inches wide is exposed, with its strike at right
angles to the course of the adit
and dip nearly vertical. The
course of this adit from the portal for 100 feet is true N. 50' E.,
at which point it has been diverted to a more northerly course
