Great interest is again being taken by

the tunnels, it will  be possible to stamp
out ore at a very small cost per ton.
Some fine specimens were brought in
from the Brown Bear group of claims on
the right bank of Cayoosh last week.
The ore is free milling and carries a
good percentage of galena as well.
Game is very plentfful on the creek
this summer such as deer, bear, goat,
big horn &c, supplying the miner's
table with a wide variety of meats.

boom in the whole camp, that will be
founded on its merits and not on imaginary values.

to five feet in width and shows free gold
all along the ledge. At present only a
few men are at work but the staff will
be increased shortly as another tunnel
will be run below the present workings
to tap the ledge.
Mr. Circle who has had charge of the
work came down last week and left for a
visit to the Kootenay. He will return
shortly to the Ida May. The company
are well pleased with their property,
and when transportation facilities permits work on a large scale will at once
be started. Good cabins have been erected and everything is in good shape to
continue work.
HININO   NOTES.
GALENA   ON   CADWALLADER.
A fine specimen of galena was brought
into town the first of the week from
Cadwallader creek. The find was made
about a month ago by George Breeden,
about nine miles up the creek. There
has been ^our claims located and are
owned by George Breeden, J. J. Hill, G,
0. Hyde and George MeQuarre. The
ledge is about five feet wide and can be
traced across all the claims. Assays
have been made which gives 221 ounces
silver and $7 in gold.
Since locating the owners have been
doing development work on the property
which has showed up wonderfully. This
is the first discovery of galena on Cadwallader creek, and from the satisfar-
tory results obtained, it goes to show
that this district is destined to become
one of theleading camps in the province.
The owners of this group of claims are
well pleased with their find, and it is
their intention to continue work on the
property for some time.
The Lome arrastra i« being rapidly
put in shape and it will only be a short
time until it will commence grinding
the rich quartz.
The timber and other material for the
Pioneer airastra is about ready. It is
expected that everything will be in
readiness to start the arrastra about the
20th of this month.
N..T. Prendergast and Jas. Rowbottom
have staked some claims about nine
miles up McGillivray creek. The claims
are the ones Jensen did work on several
years ago. After staking the claims,
they left for the Blaekwater and expect
to be in Lillooet shortly.
The Brett Brothers are still working
away on their group of claims on McGillivray with good success and as they
continue to sink on the ledge it improves.
Some nice samples of rock in which
gold was visible was brought to town
this; Veek. They are at present fixing
up a camp and have the cabin almost
completed, and intend to keep working
away on the property. George Wharton
who is working with the Bretts got a
very nasty cut on the foot with an axe
this week, and had to lay off for a little
while but is is now able to work again.
held. The evidence of the witnesses
was to the effect that Day had on Sunday afternoon gone out on toe boom of
logs and fell off into the water. He
could not swim and it was twenty minutes before they reached the place
where he went under and by the time
they pulled him out of 12 feet of water
life was extinct. The men at the camp
did all they could, but were unable to
restore him in 15 minutes. It was considered by the jurymen that the men, if
they had been hetter instructed, would
have kept up resuscitation operations
for a much longer period. In their verdict of accidental drowning the added a
rider that the authorities should take
steps to disseminate, folders with instructions to logging ca»ip8 and other
places on water fronts.
Mr. Day was well known in this section having only left Lillooet a couple of
months ago, and his many friends regret his untimely death.

Mr. Samuel Gibbs served Thursday
morning on Mr. A. W. Smith, a protest
against his election as M. P. P. for this
district. There are some nineteen
clauses in the protest, but the grounds
of the petition are that illegal
methods were adopted by Mr. Smith to
gain the seat. Joseph Johnstone is the
petitioner and the sum of $2,000 has
been placed in the hands of the registrar
of the supreme court for expenses. It
is reported that some remarkable and
interesting evidence will he forthcoming.
Nearly every member throughout the
province has had a protest entered
against their election. It is probable that
a large number of the protests will be

Ferry at Sucker Creek.
John Collum of Sucker creek has applied to the government for permission
t't run a ferry at the stcond i rossing < f
Bridge river near Sucker cieek, and asks
for the riyht of four miles up and font-
miles down the river. It is Mr. Collum's
intention to tun a cable ferry and as
Boon as arrangements are completed
will commence the building of the ecow.
He will allow passengers to cross free,
only charging for freight.
If this arrangement is carried out it
should give satisfaction to the people of
Bridge river, as with the present
arrangements considerable kicking is
being done. Most people are of the
opinion that Hunter Jack, who runs the
ferry at present, gets a bonus from the
government, hut such is not the case.
When this ferry was advocated the government offered it to several white men,
the bonus being $1 per day, and it was
expected that it would he taken as promised, but none came forward and so
Hunter Jack who had a boat took charge
and has run the ferry to please himself
taxing travelers what he wished.

The work on the Lillooet-Lytton
wagon road will probably suspend in a
few weeks as the appropriation of $10,000
made by the government in the estimates is about all used up. Mr. Smith
M. P. P., corresponded with headquarters to try and get the necessary amount,
$3,500, passed by order in council.
Owing to the present state of affairs
the government can not do any thing in
the way of appropriations, and it will
probably have to stand until the next
session of the house.
It is expected that the work can be
completed all but two miles with the
present amount of funds. The two miles
which will not be finished is the worst
part of the work, and with the amount
asked for it could be done easily.
It seems kind of hard that so much
money has been spent, and to now let
the road stop at this point, to the great
inconvenience of the people along the
road and at both ends, and it is hoped
that some arrangements can be made
whereby work will be continued.
The road gangs are still at work and
are pushing along as fast as possible.
Parties who have gone over it says the
whole work is done in excellent shape.

LILLOOET, B.C., FRIDAY AUGUST 12,1898.
In this iseue will be found a communication dealing with the Lillooet wagon
road. There ate several dangerous
places along the road which no doubt
should be looked after, as the lives and
property of the travelers are in jeopardy-
If Postmaster-General Mulock knew
what inconvenience is caused the miners
and people in the Bridge River district,
by not having a mail service, he would
not hesitate a minute in granting the request. We have received information
from a reliable source that the matter
will be attended to.
On the 29th of September the plebiscite will be taken all over the Dominion
of Canada to get the voice of the people
on the prohibition of the liquor traffic.
This is a very important question and
should receive careful attention, although numbers of people will not take
the trouble to go to the poll and vote, as
they are indifferent as to whether prohibition is carried or not. The temperance organizations of British Columbia
will have to do some hard work if they
wish to carry this province. The eastern
provinces have had considrable experience in this line, and from all reports are
well organized to carry on a vigorous
campaign. It is not known yet in what
shape the question will be put before
the electorate, whether taxation will
al so be considered. It should be made
a criminal offense to spoil a ballot and
the person so doing should also be disfranchised.
,,'The political   affairs  of  the province
are in a bad way.    The Cassiar election
is doubtful and the whole thing is being
run in a very peculiar manner.     There
are three candidates, two Independents,
and one Opposition, and the indications
are that the Opposition   will   win  with
one Independent leaning that way.     It
will be a couple of weeks before all the
returns are in.   There must be considerable money on   both   sides as there has
been twenty-six protests so far, and the
sum of $2,000 is put up with each protest.   The following are the seats pro-
tesied : Opposition: Neill, Alberni; Mc-
Kechnie Nanaimo; Tisdall, McPherson,
Cotton and Martin, Vancouver;   Kidd,
Richmond; Forster,Delta; Munro.Chil-
liwack;   Dearie, North Yale;  Prentice,
East Lillooet; Kellie.Revelstoke; Hume
Nelson.   Government: Helmcken.Hall,
Turner   and   McPhillips, Victoria city;
Eberts,   South  Victoria;   Booth, North
Victoria; Bryden, North Nanaimo; Bul-
len and Pooley, Esquimau; Robertson,
Cowiohan;    Henderson,    Westminster;
McBride, Dewdney; Baker, 8. E. Kootenay.     This   is all at present, and it is
reported that there will be others very
shortly. "We wonder what Diogenes
would think of this?
i/	
The construction of a wagon road to
the Bridge River district should receive
more attention with the proper authorities. The mineral claims all through
the district and especially on Cadwallader creek have proved themselves valuable properties, and with only a trail to
get in toolr, etc., it is impossible to do
little else tl an development work. If a
wagon road w as built to f How the pre*
sent trail, machinery to work these
properties on a large scale could be
shipped in. A correspondent from
Tyauchton creek in this issue points out
the impossibility of having a feasible
road across from the head of Anderson
lake to Cadwallader. We had only mentioned this route and had no intention
of depriving Tyauchton and other camps
along the present route from having
good transj ortation facilities. We were
informed on very good authority that
what we stated was correct, and if our
correspondent is right, we are pleased
to be correi ted. The wagon road over
the present route, we think would be
the best scl etne.
The Accident at the Blue Lake.
Editor Tiik Prospector,—Si»-: That
portion of the road which slid out under
Mr. Eaglesons team loaded with dredger
machinery for the dredger opposite Lillooet, is not the only dangerous phve
between Ashcroft and Lillooet. There
are several others as unsafe where an
accident, such as has just happened in
the Marble Canyon would prove more
disastrous.
There is one place along the Big lake
especially, which 1 draw attention to,
as it is showing the same indications of
sinking, as did the road bed at the Blue
lake, where the team would roll completely out of sight beneath the deep
waters of the lake.
There is a- other place worthy of notice
where an accident would prove just as
fatal. The Fraser river roars a thousand
feet below and without an obstacle in
all that distance to arrest the flight of a
fugitive team and wagon hastening to
terrible dee'ruction. At a point five
miles from Lillooet, where the road passes over a gravel slide just sutticiently
wide to cany a wagon with convenience
with a perpendicular face, no cribbing,
and a gradual slope right to the river,
is the place L have reference to. It will
go someday and probably carry some unfortunate being with it, tf it is not built
up quickly and properly secured.
Those whose lives and property depend upon the security of the roads, beg
that the government take the matter in
hand and see that all dangerous places
are renewed and built solid. P.

THE    PKOSPEOTOR.
SPAINS   PEACE   PROPOSAL.
The United States cabinet discussed
the president's answer to Spains peace
proposal   and   reached    the   following
decisions:
The absolute surrender of Porto Rico
to the United States; recognition of independence to Cuba; cession of one of
'he Ladrone islands to the United StateB
as a coaling station and the cession to
the United States   of  at • least  coaling
stations in the Philipines.   The question
undecided is what disposition shall be
made of the Philipine islandsasa whole.
It can be stated that there is practically
no difference of opinion in the cabinet
on the question of the retention of the
Philipine islands as a   whole, all   members being opposed to the acquisition of
these islsmdp.     There has been no decision, however, as yet on the extent to
which the government will go in its decision   respecting   the  future  of these
islands, but it is probable that the answer  of   the   president will express the
willingness of this government to leave
the matter of the future government of
the Philipenes entirely in the hands of a
joint commission to be appointed by this
government   and  the    government   of
Spain.     The   probability   is   that   the
United States will insist upon a guarantee of certain reforms in govern'nent i»
Philipine island.
The answer will make no mention of
a money indemnity, neither will there
be any armistice at all.  The answer will
be in the nature of an ultimatum and if
Spain   does   not accept it, she will fare
woise in the future. ________

Editor  The   Prospector,—Sir:      In
ffiir   issue   of   the 29th you say that a
m<[ could he built from the   head of
f .nleieon lake, a distance of 25 miles to
idwallader creek.     In   making   that
itement I think you come well within
Jj'undp, at least you do not over reach
le distance, and in my estimation do
-t   reach   it   by at least ten or fifteen
lies.   But allowing that the distance
|jbm the head of Anderson lake to Cad-
ader is only 25 miles.     Did it ever
[rike   yon   that the amount of money
Id labor necessary to build a road over
at route would almost doable the cost
ft building from Jacks  Landing up by
[liy of Sucker creek.   A road buiit from
nderson   lake   to   Cadwallader would
"/ve to cross the divide between Bridge
f
;er and Blaekwater, where snow  lays
b deep for   travel   of   any debcripiion
•til the latter end of June, and unless
is intended to build a separate road to
Commodate the mines at Sucker creek,
rty Thieves, etc., it would have to be
|ilt through to Sucker creek, a dstance
_}m the divide of 25 miles more.     The
stance from Jacks Landing to Sucker
-ek roughly speaking is 41 miles, from
cker creek to Ida May or Little Joe 10
wes, making a distance of about 51 or
I miles, where the grades are easy, two
the principal creeks are bridged and
rail already in existence, that with an
tlay of   one-half   the cost of building
er Anderson lake, would  make a road
er which   teams   and   wagons   could
wel the year around.
