PROSPECTOR
VOL. 3, NO. 37
LILLOOET,   B. C, FRIDAY, JULY 10, 1914.
$2 PER YEAR
Lillooet Mining Division
Although delayed for over a
year in publication, owing to the
extra printing entailed by the International Geological Congress
meeting in Canada, the summary
report of the Geological survey
for 1912 contains much information of value to the mining interests of British   Columbia.
The work of Mr. A. M. Bateman is of particular interest to
prospectors as its object was to
outline the eastern edge of the
Coast Batholith along which it is
probable that new mineral discoveries of importance will be
made. W. Fleet Robertson, provincial mineralogist, spent some
time on this work in 1910. From
a prospector's point of view information of this character is urgently required, as it would be of
great assistance to those working
on the P. G. E. railway, which
will open this hitherto unknown
territory to transportation. Mr.
Bateman declares the'area covered by the batholith tio be much
less than indicated on previous
geological maps, and he places
the boundary as following a line
about 65 degrees west from Anderson lake to the near head of
Chilco lake. The only, mineral he
found of economic importance
was the bog iron of Iron creek
and Whitewater river, but he
notes that in the area lying east
<>f Tyaughton creek, and south
of Big creek, are the same rocks
intruded by dykes similar to those
which contain arsenical gold deposits in the vicinity of Eldorado
creek, and it is not unlikely similar gold deposits may occur in
this area. It is pointed out that
(his locality is a likely place to
prospect. Similar rocks are also
found about the lower end of
Chilco lake, and seams of stibnite
indicating mineralization, were
found on the west side of Chilco
lake, about five miles below Ne-
maia valley. The lower Cretaceous rocks on some parts of this
area may contain coal.
One of the most promising mining developments is the Pioneer
Mine at Bridge river, in the Lillooet district. The property is
owned by A. and S, Ferguson
and Adolphus Williams of Vancouver, who keep a force of miners at work proving up the ore
bodies. A drift has been run 450
feet on a new ore shoot. The
vein is 15 feet wide, of which 12
feet consists of quartz breccia
carrying from $8 to $10 in gold,

LOCAL AND GENERAL ITEMS.
Church Services
Methodist church : Morning
(Sunday School) at 11. There
will be the usual evening service
at 7.30, Rev. R. D. Hall, pastor,
will officiate.
A cordial invitation is extended
to all.
Miss Dora Manson left for the
coast the early part of this
week.
Freighting on the roads is not
so heavy as of yore, but there is
still something doing.
J. Bell's lots and residence are
for sale, the advt. is on the back
page.
Geo, Hurley cf Victoria, who
has been here for the past few
weeks, looking after his interests
returned home Wednesday.
The fruit crop in Lillooet and
vicitity is coming along first rate
and from the present outlook we
are going to have a bumper crop
this year.
A. Ballwin will open a pool
room containing six tables in the
course of a few days. He has
rented the ground floor of the
new theatre.
The sawmill at the lake, owned
and operated by W. G. Duguid,
is running full time these days,
a considerable staff is being kept
busy.
Fred A. Kinder returned this
week to the Britania group of
mineral claims, in which he is interested, to do further development work. His son Fred will
leave here Monday to assist in the
work.
Jack Johnson who is ranching
on Cayoosh creek, just above the
falls, has some fine young trees,
and the growth on some since he
planted them in April, is three
feet. What a climate we have
got! We saw theae trees so we
know of what we speak.
Mrs. McNaughton-Manson, the
first lady author to write a book
in British Columbia, and Vice-
president of the Woman's Press
Club of Vancouver, is a visitor in
Lillooet this week and is the
guest of her very old friends
Mr. and Mrs. W. Adams. The
book is entitled "Over Land to
Cariboo," and gives a genuine
description of the pioneers travel
from Fort Gary to the Cariboo
mines.
Fishing is good these days and
it is quite a usual sight to see rod
and line being carried towards
the fishing grounds in the vicinity of Cayoosh and Lake creeks,
Not being able to keep pace
with the work, John Ackers,
blacksmith, has been to the coast
to secure more help, this makes
three in the shop at the present
time.
Mr. Graham of P.G.E. has been
appointed District engineer of
location Fort George North. He
passed through town last week
accompanied by his wife and
child.
Dr. Christie has sent two men
up to the Spokane group of mineral claims on Bridge river for
the purpose of doing stripping
and general development work.
It is also his intension to make a
trip to the claims himself and expects to start Monday.
W. Abercrombie, prop. Excelsior hotel, is having some extensive improvements made in connection with the sewer of the
hotel. We also espied quite a
pile of wall paper in the clerk's
office and we are of the opinion
that there will be something doing in the near fututure.
Moha Jottings
Moha— Dear Sir,— We have
been having a fiine spell of hot
weather, just the right kind for
the bumper crops of hay, now being harvested in this little Burgh
Messrs Birch and Duncan are
keeping up a fine pace to the
musical click of the mowing machine and piling up their hugh
crop.
Messrs Burkholders have a good
crop standing and will be busy
cutting this week.
Messrs Bishop and Moule have
been hard at it with the good old
"Armstrong" mower and have
put up a fine crop of Timothy and
Clover hay. Everything is looking good and there should be
some well fed stock around next
winter.
The Provincial police are assist
ing the relatives of Mr. A. L.
Ellison of Vancouver, to solve
the mystery of the disappearance
of Mr. Ellison, who has not been
heard of since May 24. On that
day he wrote to his wife from
Quesnel, saying that he had just
returned from a 300 mile trip in
the Babine lake country, and
would write again next day and
forward some money. From that
time no trace of him has been
found, and mail forwarded to him
lies uncalled for at the postoffice
at Quesnel.
Mr. Ellison had charge of a
considerable amount of construction work on the G.T.P. in the
Burns lake district. He is 37
years of age, height 5 feet 10
inches, with redish - brown hair
moustache.
Dr. A. G. Hirschberg, manager
of the Toric Optical Company
will visit Lillooet personally, instead of the regular representative.   See back page
London, July 8, — For the first
time in years a Britisher is lightweight champion of the world.
Before a great crowd of spectators at the Olunpia yesterday
Freddie Welsh secured the decision of Referee Eugene Corri,
the most noted fistic authority in
England, over Willie Ritchie after
twenty fast rounds of boxing and
thereby became the undisputed
holder of the world's title. Welsh
is the first real champion of the
world in a long time.
While Ritchie laid claim to the
title he was really only American
champion as Welsh was champion
of the Briiish Isles, Canada and
Australia and had once before
secured a decision over Ritchie.
There is now no argument as to
Welsh's claim to the title.
Birmingham, July 6—The body
of Joseph Chamberlain was buried today in Hookley cemetery in
the constituency he long represented in the House of Commons.
Train Service in December
Mr. D'Arcy Tate, vice-president and general manager of the
Pacific Great Eastern Railway, is
feeling well satisfied at reports
of progress on that line which
have reached him within the last
couple of days. Mr. J. W. Stewart, head of the contracting firm,
Sir Richard McBride and Mr.
Tate discussed many important
questions regarding construction
at a conference Monday afternoon. Mr. Stewart has just returned from a tour of inspection
covering several weeks and the
whole northern territory.
Not only was Mr. Stewart able
to assure them of good progress
on the P. G. E., but also brought
information that an accommodation train service is now operating on the Grand Trunk Pacific
right through to Prince Rupert.
Mr. Stewart's car and several
others making up a train went
through in excellent time last
week from Fort George to Prince
Rupert. The whole northern
country is b'egining to feel the
impetus of the operation of the
line and there is apparently a
very fair amount of business
offering from the start.
"With the completion of grading over the whole Pacific Great
Eastern from Squamish to Fort
George assured by the end of the
present year, we have naturally
been turning some of our attention to the problems attending
smooth operation of our road
right from the time that the last
spike is driven," said Mr. Tate
to the Province, "Tracklaying
is proceeding from the Howe
Sound end towards Lillooet and
this section should be ready for
train service by December 31st
next.
"You know I look for Howe
Sound to be one of the great
ports on the Pacific Coast, though
of course, it will be pretty hard
to overcome the lead that Vancouver already has. But let me
point out to you that we shall
get better insurance rates than
either Vancouver or Prince Rupert, and I have it from men in
the trade who are in a position to
know that our port is looked x>n
with special favor for elevator
sites. A caller on the Premier
the other day assured Sir Richard
that he proposed to build a large
elevator there for handling of
prarie grain. We are going to
have a real seaport there, you
may depend on that," said Mr,
Tate.
Mr. Tate announced that arrangements had been completed
between the railway company,
the Indians and the government
for the taking over of six small
Indian reserves lying adjacent to
the old townsite of Newport.
These reserves contain altogether
1100 acres, from which should

carrying from $8 to $10 in gold,
while the remaining three feet
appears to be a secondary vein of
rihbon quartz carrying high gold
values, assays running from $50
to $100 per ton. The rich section
of the vein is on the hanging
wall. Ihe vein lies between di-
rite on the hanging wall and serpentine on the foot wall. It has
hitherto been slated that the
mineral veins at. Dridge river
were generall.\ nan ow and irregular, though carrying good values
in gold, but this large vein on
the Pioneer will dispel that idea.
In addition to the long tunnel,
other developemehts has been
done in the shape of crosscut tunnels, and proving up two veins.
The early history of the Pioneer is a tribute to the indomitable perseverance of some of the
early miners.
Before the property was acquired by the present owners the
original locater for eleven years
operated single handed a small
arrastrs, and made a comfortable
living from the sale ot the gold
produced. He did his own milling and milled 600 to 700 lbs. of
ore per day, averaging about $10
per day. Some of the ore yielded in this primitive fashion $60
per ton. As usual with a primitive equipment of this kind the
losses were high, an assay of the
tailings returning $22.80 per ton.
Other properties being developed at Bridge river are: Coronation, also operating a ten-stamp
mill; and Blackbird, owned by a
Victoria syndicate. The Lorne
has been a good producer but is
shut down at present. The Wayside is owned in Cincinnati. The
Cadwallader creek section, where
thtse properties are located, is
the most important part of the
Lillooet mining division, and the
mineralized arer covered by these
mines is 3 1-2 miles long by 3000
feet wide. It is intruded, accord-
to Mr. Bateman, who reported on
in for the Geological Survey; by
two elongated, stocklike masses
of diorite. one which extends
from east of the Pioneer to west
of the Lorne, and appears on the
north side of Bridge river, near
the Wayside mine. The other
extends along the south fork, and
includes the Forty Thieves group
The gold is free-milling. Bridge
river camp gives every promise
of developing intooneof the best
free-milling gold camps in British
Columbia. — Province.

from front page
be deducted 200 acres of steep
mountains sides. Besides these
900 acres the railway is filling in
200 acres of tideflats on the south
west front of the old townsite.
Through Mr. Stewart a harbor
and town-planning engineer of
wide experience in the person of
Mr. Cummine has been engaged
to take personal charge of the
situation. One of the most important improvements he will
take up will be the proposed diversion of the Squamish River
from its present channel through
marshy and often overflowed
land to a new course to the westward, running along at the base
of the mountain beyond the town-
site. Here the river bed will be
deepened and dyked, while the
old course will be drained and
filled to make decent property.
Wharves and waterfront railway
yards will be laid out by Mr.
Cummine, and a feature will be
a wide boulevard at one side of
the old townsite of Newport.
