Editor Prospector,
Permit me space in your
columns for a few remarks on
the Lytton-Lillooet wagon road
A very liberal grant—$4000—
lias been made by the Government this year, sufficient to
make several much-needed alterations and essential improvements ; in fact, about enough to
make an excellent road all thro'
for the country.
There is, at the present time, a
patent grader at work on the
Lytton division,—an innovation
for whicli the Government deserves credit, as it is doing good
work, and is, no doubt, ol greal
advantage. However, it is to be
regretted that no further use is
being made of it than merely lo
clean the road out.
The heavy grades und accursed
hills are the damning features of
this road, and not the slightest
attempt is being made to cut
out or modify these. The 8-mile
hill should be cut out, as it is bv
far the worst hill on the road.
There are rocks standing in
the track iu many places, that it
would not cost much to remove.
They have been there since the
road wjiis made and it seems likely they will stay there, ns long
as Stevenson runs the road, unless heisjforced to tnke them out
It is quite probable that John
Dundas hasn't a stick of Giant
or a hummer and drill in his outfit. One day's work with the
plow und grader would obliterate the worst pitch on the 10,
just b-Jlow the crossing of the
stream. This is the most impracticable spot on tlie road in
winter nnd iu wet weather ; it is
left as it has been.
The rpad above the 17 should
be cut off, and anew road made
acro.s the gulch, to come out at
the corner of Ruddock's fence ;
the present route is us unnecess-
ary tis it is villainous.
I lic.v make a distinct *U>tc-
inent, and chullenge anyone to
controvert it, that there has already beeu enough money uselessly frittered away — hiding
rocks with a little dust and slovenly, slipshod ways of doing
things — to have made a first-
class rond, if it had been properly expended.
The bald fact remains that, iu
spite of all the money that hus
been lavished on it, the Lytton
division of the roud stands today in the same disgraceful and
hideous deformity iu which it
was conceived, with one lone exception, —and that is where I
changed the road last tall, at a
cost of less than $100, cutting
out altogether one of the worst
hills ou the road, and the most
impracticable in winter, except
the 10. 1 understand Mr. Stevenson has stated the new road is
no better than the old. Apart
from the obvious nnimui.; this
only exemplifies the fact of which
unfortunately. we have already
too much proof; i. e. that although Mr. Stevenson may be a
good and high-minded citizen,
and might maKe an excellent sky
pilot,— he knows about as much
nbout a terrestrial wagon road,
as he does of the interior of the
Sultan of Turkey's harem.

William Ji.lu.iit: n.
Canada and New York have a joint
inteiest in the memory oi Sir William Johnston, the most picturesque
persobal ity of the generation toitw-
diatoly preceding the commencement
of the American revolutionary war.
He was an Irishman by birth, but at
twenty-three he emigrated to tho
wilds of the Province of Now York
to manage an uncle's landed estate
which lay in thc valley of the Mohawk River not far from Schenectady. All about him were the survivors of the great tribe which cava
the river its name, and with these
and others of tho. Iroquois confederation he became intimately acquainted in the course of the traffic which
he carried ou with them. By honorable dealine, an attractive manner,
and facility in accommodating himself to their modes of life he ecauir-
ed an ascendancy over the Indians
that was as advantageous to tho
Government as it was profitable to
When still young he was created
military commander of tho Six Nations, and through this appointment
he was drawn into the frontier wars
against the French. He took part in
1754 in the Albany Conc_re.s, which
was ln some sense the prototype of
the later gatherings out of which
was evolved the American federation.
With the rank of "Major-General" ho
took part in the campaigns of
1755-GO, that ended in the capitulation of Montreal, at which event ho
■ft as present as commander of the
1-idian allies of the British. His
preat personal influence with the Indians of New York kept them from
Joining in the conspi-ncy of Ponti_io
three years later, and when the
movement died down he it was who
by a treaty of amity ciuen'hed at
Niagara the smouldering embers of
that curious uprising.
Sir William John.ton, ln tho enjoyment of a liberal pension and a
Baronetcy, lived till 1774 on an extensive estate granted to him by tho
British Crown close to the place*
which had long been his home.
Johnstown, called after himself, was
founded by him, and there a monument to perpetuate his memory will
be unveiled this month. As the battle of Lexington was not foueht till
1775 he was just spared the catastrophe that scattered his family and
drove them to reside near Montreal
His son, Sir John Johnston, fouorht
on the British ?idc in both the revolutionary war and the war of 1812-
15. To those who- admire patriotic
statesmanship there is on this continent no shrine moro worthy of a
visit than the old home of this famous civilian soldier, whose reputation is tbe heritage of two nations
and whose meinorv is unstained by
nny act of savasrery.

Tlie scathing rebuke given by
Judge Spinks of the County
Court at Kamloops, tlie other
day, to bar-tenders who hud
been shown to have given liquor
to men already intoxicated, was
undoubtedly deserved, nor waa
a whit too severe. It is fully
time au example was made of
some bar-keepers, who are guilty
of so gross a breach of the law.
Iu to-day's despatches there is
a report of ti suicide a.t Otter
Flat, of a man to whom liquor
was given while he was already
under its influence. As a result
of that spree, of that overdosing
with liquor, perhaps none too
good, the unfortunate being
took his own life. It is to be
hoped tlmt not only Judge
Spinks, but all others possessing the necessary authority, will
deal rigorously with all instances of violation of the law in regard to supplying persons already intoxicated,   with liquor.

Clinton, April 28
Editor of Prospector,
Sir,—I read in your last issue, a letter
from Mr. Arthur H. Martley. in reply
to my letter of three weeks past, on the
game laws of B. 0.
Mr. Martley eays he doesn't see why
$_ guide for a bit; game hunter should
act as a game warden, unless receiving
pay. I would like to say through yr ur
columns, that while not diecusfeing the
game laws, I do think that guid.s ar.
more directly interested in protecting
game that any one else. As Mr. Mart-
ley eays himself that it is a privilege to
act as a warden, why should lie expect
pay. He also suggests -liepl.erd_ for the
protection of game. What a laughable
idea! Picture to yourself, Mr. Martlev
all ready with a bottle of bug poieon,
his gun BDd an Indian guide, heading
for the mountains, to live on the good
mutton of " an old ram," that he tell-
about, and to act as shepherd to the
wild sheep of B. 0. How many eagles
and coyotes do you think he would kill.
I have been in the mountains a great
deal in the last 15 years and have never
yet seen positive proof of an eagle, coyote ot wolverine having killed a mountain sheep, which I still maintain need
the most protection.
Anyone would be led to suppose that
Mr. Martley was utleily ignorant of the
eame laws, when he eajs that the mutton of the big horn sheep is the best in
the world. Yet he knows that we are
prohibited from killing ewes or lambs
at any time. Surely he will not say Ihe
mutton of a big ram is the best meat in
the world in open season. I am glad to
~4y that my taste differs from his, if Ik
likes that kind of meat.
I baidly expect the Government will
legislate fiom either Mr. Wray's or m>
own suggestions ; but ii thev should, I
am sure they would give better satisfaction to a majority of people, and par.it•
ulaily to the guides of 13. 0. than they
would by lining the mountains with
shepherds at a yearly salary. They had
better make a park of the whole Province, as there are sheep in other parts
besides the North Fork of Bridge Biver
that need a little protection.
I hope Mr. Martley will stop jesting,
■tick to reason, and advance some more
feasible idea, whereby the Government
can better protect the game, especially
the Sheep of the Province, which we all
know are a valuable aeset, if properly
bandied.      I remain,
Yours truly,
The able pens of Wray and Martley
are engaged on the subject of Roads, in
this issue. Have you any ioads up yonr
way, Mr. Pearnou ?
