 THE PROSPECT
VOL. 2, NO. 31
LILLOOET,    B. C, FRIDAY, JUNE 13, 1913.
PER YEAR
Dominion Day Celebration.
News Away From Home.
The Words of a Philosopher.
From present indications, the
citizens of Lillooet will, this year,
excel their former endeavors in
the celebration of Dominion Day.
As will be seen by the programme
on the sixth page of this paper,
there is a large and varied list of
prizes, covering a three day i- i -
tival. That there will be a very
large attendance there is little
question —probably the lai r st
ever attending a similar eel. I i v
tion in Lillooet. In the horse
races we are going to have competition with Lytton, Ashcroft,
Clinton, and far-off Chilcoten,
while in the athletic sports there
is now enough young element in
the district to put up a fir-~*t-class
exhibition. Perfect ord< will
be maintained, the various com-
mittees having determined that
nothing of a -ough mature will
be allowed to creep in and mar
the name of old Lillooet.

An Orderly Community.
Lillooet is, indeed, an orderly
town, considering the cosmopo'i-
tan nature of its population.
Crime of a serious nature is seldom heard of, and outside of t' a
unfortunate inebriate c an occasional infraction o the Indian
Act, the magistrate has a snap.
This is as it should be, and due
credit should be given where it
belongs— to the police department. A too-officious constable
can sometimes stir up more strife
in his own misdirected view of
affairs than would be found in a
town of an acknowledged bad
character, thus causing the antagonism of the citizens; but
when he tries to properly administer law from a common sense
view, he commands the respect
of the community, and will always find a helping hand when
occasion arises. Lillooet is a town
where a man can bring his family
to, today, and live a life of peace.

A Hint to the Prospector.
Prospectors and others always
need to remember that, in opening   up a   new camp,  absolute
is
essential.     A well-defined  lead
Ah Dan, an up-to-date representative of the Flowery Kingdom, appeared before Indian
Agent Graham, on Wednesday,
charged with supplying intoxicants to Indians. Evidence in
the form of seven bottles of
booze and the testimony of a
sorry-looking Indian lady helped
to separate Ah Dan from fifty-
five good dollars, and, as a further admonition, he was also
taxed the costs of the case.
Sarah Diablo, an aborigine belonging to the Fountain family,
btushingly admitted that the policeman was correct when he
charged her with being drunk.
She claimed that the aforesaid
Ah Dan was the cause of all of
her present woes. She was
given a chance to pay $10 to the
government.
item, but of a far different nature
than recorded.    The stolen gold
was in the   form   of amalgam
taken from   the  plates of   the
stamp    mill—about   $2000—and
was placed in the safe by Colonel
Rives, the superintendent.    The
following morning it was discov- ■
ered that the safe had been tap- j
ped   and   all   of   the   amalgam
taken.     The padlocks were both ;
broken off, and after removing
the swag one of the locks was j
put back  in  position.     A  man
named   Mason,   who had   been!
employed around the mill, was!
arrested by the Lillooet constable
and stood trial, but the evidence \
against him was vague, and he
was dismissed.
This clean-up of the Golden
Cache was being anxiously watched for all over the province, and
it was hoped that it would be
satisfactory and give the outside
a barren lead; and such effort
being certain to detection, results
in a serious set-back to a district
which may have real merit. A
case is in mind where a clumsy
: effort to deceive resulted in a
withdrawal of all proffers or
notice from intending investors,
when a straight statement of
fact and honest showing would
have secured what prospectors
want—a good price fcran undeveloped claim. It is not well to
bank too much on the possible
ignorance of the man sent to examine the property, but vastly
safer and fairer to give him
credit for a little knowledge; and
purely as a matter of business
policy, more satisfactory all round
not to attempt any cheap little
tricks that are sure to be found
out and are sure to hurt the whole
district. One such transaction
often gives a deserving  locality
world more  confidence, as there • ,     ,    ,

robbery of   the   clean-up
is  as
much a mystery today as it ever
was. 	
W. W. Jones, the old reliable
rancher in the Bridge river district, arrived in town Wednesday.
From appearances, Mr. Jones has
secured a corner lot on Easy
street.
Some rich-looking ore has just
reached Lillooet from the Bridge
river section, taken from properties recently located. One of the
discoveries is in the vicinity of
the old Tommy Green cabin. It
is a silver proposition, and showi
indications of a big mine.
Our Baseball Affairs.
The Lillooet baseball team has
at  last  settled  down to earnest
: practice. In the election of Baker
as manager and Barber as captain, the boys have secured energetic and capable men. Their
defeat last Sunday has had a
tendency to put more life into
the game, and from now on we
may expect to see "some ball."
The first practice under the new
management  took place on Wed-
i nesday evening, and they seemed
serious in their work. The whole
team is in perfect harmony, and
one common victim seems to lay
in the direction of Lytton —when
i next they meet.

C. P. Dam has commenced work
on his placer claim in the vicinity
of Sucker creek, and expects to

the course of a few days.
Mr. Forbes, secretary of the
Coronation Mine, with headquarters at Victoria, paid a visit to
the mines last week. He says
work at the mine is to be resumed on an extended scale.

Through the kindness of Mr.
W. W. Jones, of Bridge river,we
had a glimpse of a letter written
by W. E. Lawson, a gentleman
who was, last year, in charge of
the geological survey of this district, and who is about to be
transferred to the Yukon. Mr.
Lawson evidently thinks a great
deal of this district, and very
much regrets that the geological
department has seen fit to shift
him to another zone. From the
tone of the letter he is not only
impressed with the resources of
Lillooet. but has a kindly feeling
for the inhabitants thereof, particularly in the Bridge river section. THE   PROSPECTOR

New Venue to Westminster for Trial
of Paul and Spintlum.
In view of the fact that the
jury at Vernon were unable to
agree upon a verdict in the trial
of Moses Paul and Paul Spintlum,
charged with the murder of constable Alex. Kindness, it has been
found necessary again to change
the venue of the trial.
Kamloops was contemplated as
a possible court with a special
assize sitting for the hearing,
and the coast towns were also
reviewed in this connection. Finally it has been decided to traverse the case to New Westminster. The assizes there will commence on the 16th inst., but as
the calendar is heavy it is impossible that this case will be considered until nearly the end of
the month.
Fresh subpoenas will be issued
in due course.
W. H. Kendrick Convicted of False
Pretences Charge at Clinton.
W. H. Kendrick was found
guilty at the Clinton assizes of
receiving money under false pretences.
Kendrick arrived at Lytton
about July of last year, representing himself to be Thomas
Rennie, the lacrosse player of
New Westminster, and borrowed
ten dollars from a Lytton resident
which amount was not returned.
The victim gave Kendrick a
personal cheque which the accused endorsed with the name of
Thomas Rennie.

Young Presbyterian Pastor Declares Small
Towns of B. C. to be Gate of Hell.
Declaring that  he had walked |
350 miles from the very gate of
hell, a weary  trek on foot, then!
had made a lengthy train trip of
4000 miles to tell them the amaz-;
ing story of the grip that sin had '
on   his  district at Fort George, [
Rev. C. M.  Wright, boyish-looking, flushed, but eloquent, sincere1
and   convincing,    even    to   the
veterans    of    the   Presbyterian
General Assembly, caused a sensation at a meeting which packed
Massey Hall a few days ago.
An eloquent appeal to the young:
men of the  Presbyterian Church
of Canada to take  up the burden
of carrying the Gospel to the remote districts of the Dominion,
was the burden of Mr. Wright's
address.
"I am sure if the awful conditions I know of are revealed to
young Presbyterians, sturdy sons
of the church will respond nobly,'
he said.
Though  Mr. Wright  was  the!
SUSPECTED OF MURDER.
Four  Men   Held in   Vancouver
May Face Serious Charges.
youngest speaker of the day, and
almost boyish in appearance, his
address caused a deep impression.
He described his work as the
most discouraging anyone could
be asked to undertake.
In the far northwest foodstuffs
were at a premium, lumber and
building materials were held at
an almost prohibitive figure, and
a condition' of atheism practically
existed. He had encountered
people who declared the Bible a
farce and the church an unorganized and tottering institution,and
many believed them. Men of all
nationalities were there with one
common idea of gain.
In the smaller towns all manner
of vice was rampant. Hotels,
with bars where four to six bartenders were working, were the
most flourishing places in the
community, with the exception
of the disorderly houses. In his
own town, he said, the church
was gaining strength and he was
encouraged.
That among the four men under
arrest in Vancouver on a charge
of murdering police constable
James Archibald, there is also
the probable murderer of Charles
Atchison, who was shot in a holdup at Kamloops last November,
is one of the theories that the
Vancouver police is now working
on, it is reported.
This theory has been given
weight by the discovery among
the possessions seized by the
police of a watch which was
stolen in a burglary last autumn
at Port Moody. A second watch
which was stolen at Port Moody
has also been found in a pawnshop in the city. The description
of the three suspects at Port
Moody tallied in many respects
with the descriptions of the three
men who took part in the hold up
in the C. P. R. yards at Kamloops and in the murder of Atchison, and led the police to believe
that their identity was alike.
According to the descriptions
circulated by the Kamloops police
in which they offered a reward
of $500 for the arrest of the murderers, the three men were described as being: No. 1, a man
about six feet tall, slender and
dark, aged about 25; No. 2, aged
about 30, thick-set, and speaks
with a gruff voice, and is about
five feet seven inches tall: No. 3,
aged between 25 and ."50, short
and chunky of build, about five
feet seven inches in height.
The descriptions were not very
detailed as the affair took place
in the dark and gave little time
for close observation. The three
railway men, Charles Atchison,
Carl Brophey and Fred Dayton,
were surprised by the three
thugs, who drew revolvers and
ordered the men to hold up their
hands. Atchison failed to obey
the order and started to show
fight, when he was immediately
shot dead.    The fatal bullet, like
that which killed police constable
Archibald, was fired from a 38-
calibre revolver. After this cold I
blooded murder, one of the robbers, the one described as No. 3,
covered Brophey and Dayton with
a revolver while his companions
went through the pockets of their
dead victim. They took away a
gold watch in his possession
which has not yet been traced.

In the Blackwater District.
In the long, long ago, years
before the white man had entered
into this part of the country,
when the native siwash was at
war with the Chilcoten Indians,
and each man walked with his
life in his hands as it were, there
was one place which was at one
time a great resort for the Indian. This was the Blackwater
district. Using the oxidized and
decomposed matter and making a
paint of it, the Indians would
get themselves up in a most
hideous and unearthly manner.
In later years this painting
ground was shown to the white
man, and now what was once the'
meeting place of an army of wild
Indians, previous to them going
to war with the neighboring
tribes, is now one of the most
promising and satisfactory parts
of our rich mineral district of Lillooet. In a beautiful basin, with
Blackwater lake to the north and
surrounded by grand and monstrous mountains, with their
glittering snow-capped summits,
lies the Blackwater mining camp,
which, with the present construction of the P. G. E. railway,
will in a very short time be one
of the most promising mining
camps in the province.
The ore is base and in large
quantities, some of it going 15
per cent, copper apart from the
carrying of gold and silver. On
one of the claims a man can walk
along for over one thousand feet
and trace the vein, which is on
an average over 25 feet in width.
Other leads are in sight, both
good and well-defined.
To the north of Blackwater
lake is the divide and summit
between McGillivray creek and
Blackwater, up both sides of
which are staked numerous good-
looking claims, among which are
the Silver King, Queen, Prince,
and Princess. This ledge can be
seen at a distance running along
the mountain like a big white
snake. The average width of the
vein is about eight feet with a
foot wall of diorite and a hanging
wall of porphyry. Assays go
about $40 to the ton, very high in
silver and considerable in copper.
To the vest of the Blackwater
lake is a claim which is a fine
copper proposition and assaying
very high. The resemblance be- i
tween the Rossland and Black-
water ore is quite noticeable. As
already proved, these ledges im-'
prove by depth, and now with
the railroad in close proximity,
there is not the least doubt that
in a very short time we shall see
the erection of a smelter in the
Blackwater district.
Traffic on  the Lytton road is
heavy just now. Between freight
teams, automobiles,  stages and
foot passengers the old Half-way!
house presents a lively scene.
These are the days when the
prospector may be seen getting a
little grub together and striking
out for the hills.
Most all of the jurors at the
Clinton assizes have returned to
their Lillooet homes.
