$2.00 Per Year
CONSTRUCTION
TO START SOON
It is said that work on
the long-looked for and
much-needed line between
Vancouver and Fort George
will start sometime about
the first of July, at a point
near North Vancouver and
from the time dirt starts
flying the work will be rushed forward as rapidly as possible. The agreement with
the government calls for
seventy-five miles of road to
be constructed the first year,
which will bring it to a point
somewhere in the neighborhood of the Birkenhead
Hatchery. Along the coast
between North Vancouver
and Newport and up the
Squamish valley there are
miles of heavy work that
will require some time to
put in a road bed, but it is
announced that large crews
will be put on and the work
extended as far as possible
before the snow flies, which
will necessarily mean a signal to cease operations in
the Squamish country. There
is also heavy rock work along
Anderson and Seton lakes
and on the Fraser above Lillooet, but as these localities
are in the dry belt where
there is a minimnm of snow
fall work can be pursued all
winter and it is said that
station work will be in progress in these places all winter.
Several survey parties under Mr. John Nelson are in
the field at present between
North Vancouver and Lillooet making final locations
and cross-sectioning and
making all preparations for
the construction crews to
commence operations.
DEVELOPMENT WORK
AT GOLDEN NEST
Carl Wihksne came down
from the Golden Nest Group
on Cadwallader Creek and
reports that everything progressing fine with he and his
partners. The Golden Nest
Group consists of six claims
across the creek from the
Lome mine and up to the
present time three veins have
been opened and there are
still two outcroppings to be
stripped. The ore taken out
shows gold values and some
silver and the veins are said
to show good width. One
tunnel has been driven in 20
feet and the ore has improved with depth.
Mr. Wihksne and associates expect to remain in the
section indifinitely and are
preparing to put in extensive
improvements. They expect
to install a small sawmill in
the near future to get out
timbers for the tunnels and.
lumber for flumes to bring
water onto the property for
ground sluicing to open up
the various veins. Tjiey
have already built a permanent bridge across Cadwalla
der creek from the Lome,
capable of sustaining pack
horses and are putting up
substantial cabins.
Associated with M r.
Wihksne are Messrs. Frank
Gennings, John Bovid, Anton
Teter and Paul Hikshen. Mr.
Bovid will come to Lillooet
shortly enroute to New York
city, where he goes to interest capital in their proposition.
CASE DISMISSED
.Mr. Justice Gregory dismissed with costs the action
for $25,000 for malicious
prosecution brought by Martin Crane against Mark
Eagleson of Lillooet.
His Lordship considered it
unnecessary to prove the ad-
missability of certain documents. "I find," he added,
"no evidence of malice on
the part of the defendant
and believe that he acted in
good faith and on reasonable ground. The action
will therefor be dismissed
with costs."
TELEPHONE LINE
FOR BRIDGE RIVER
It is expected that work
on the Bridge River Telephone line will be started in
the immediate future. The
only reason that work has
been delayed as long as it
has was to allow the road to
be completed to such a point
that means of transporting
material and supplies into
that section would be assur-
red. Now that the road has
reached a point where there
is no danger of a telephone
crew overtaking the road
camps before the road is finished, there will probably be
a movement toward starting
the line.
Already some material has
arrived and has been stored
at the lake. It is reported
there is another shipment
enroute, so once the work
starts it will be pushed to
early completion without
delay.
MORE TRAILERS
AFTER OUTLAWS
Ashcroft, June 7.—Messrs
Cochrane, Ryder, Ford, Draper and Parker, of Hope, arrived here yesterday and
were hurried north by Chief
Constable Burr to supplement the already large contingent of detectives now in
pursuit of the two Indian
outlaws,, Moses Paul and
Paul Spitlam, who are lead-
the police a wild chase and
defying all efforts on the
• part of the government to
bring them to justice.
Mr. Cochrane was for
many years associated with
the mounted police in the
Northwest Territory, and
also had the experience of
several years service on the
police force of the city of
Dawson during its wild early
days.
Latest reports state that
the pursuers are gradually
closing in on the fugitives in
the vicinity of Alkali lake,
some fifty miles north from
Clinton, the scene of the
murder by them of Constable
Kindness.
Late reports recently in
Lillooet are the effect that
the Indians are heading for
the Fraser river and are expected to strike it somewhere
in the vicinity of the Big-
Slide, about 26 miles up the
river from Lillooet.
 o	
Already several outside
parties have announced their
intentions of bringing in
horses to take part in
the Dominion Day races and
from all indications this
year's celebration will be the
most interesting held for
several years past. A meeting will be held tonight to
arrange for the program and
daily the subscription list is
growing larger, insuring a
good time on that date. The Prospector   June   7,   1912.
