LILLOOET, B. C, FRIDAY, SEPT. 21, 1900.

MR. A. H. flACNKILL FOR YALE CARIBOO.
Revelsloke. B. 0., 15-There waa a
large attendance when Mr. It. F. Green,
M.P.P. called the Liberal-Conservative
Convention for Yale-Cariboo to order
this morning, in the Conservative Hall
at 10o'clock. On Motion, Mr. 0. A.
Semlin was elected as permanent chairman, and Mr. C. Morrison, of Nelson, as
Secretary. The chairman, thanking tie
Convention for his selection as chairman, made a short address, pointing out
the dfficulty in representing such a vast
constituency, but expi easing the belief
that the party had men who could gain
the seat.
On motion, Messrs. Semlin, E li«on,
and Houston were appointed a committee on Credentials. The conmittee
reported 109 delegates present, or represented by proxy.
On motion, Messrs. Mara, Green, Ellison, Houston and Macneill were appointed a Committee todrafi resolutions,
aud the convention adjourned till 3
o'clock p.m.
On re-assembling the committee reported the following.
Resolut.ons,
which were unanimously adopted:
"We, the delegate!) of the Liberal-Conservative Party of Yale-Cariboo Constituency, in
Convention assembled, reaffirm the principles
"iihg Party, and more particularly that cardinal principle, namely, tlie protection of home
industries, and ask that that principle be carried out, so that all sections of tlie country
shall equally share its benefits. The one industry on which the prosperity of this constituency almost wholly depends, is mining, anil we
believe thai our mining interests arc us safely |
entitled to protection ire the manufacturing
interests of Eastern Canada:
Therefore, we advocate that the duties on
lend and lead products be increased, so that
they shall be as high us those now imposed by
the United States oil the same articles:
That, whereas, the output of the precious
metal-mines of Canada, is largely increasing,
we favor the establishment of a mint, so that
tlie specie in circulation shall be that of our
own, instead of that of a foielgn country.
We advocate the restriction of tht> immigration of Chinese aud Japanese, and all classes
of people who canwot become good citizens of
tlie Dominion of Canada, and suggest the adoption of the Natal Act.
British Columbia lias not now the representation in the Federal Parliament that she is
" entitled to: therefore, we advocate that when
the redistribution of "eats is made, this constituency shall be given representation according to its population.
We think that it augurs well for the success
of the Party that Hon. Hugh John Macdonald
has decided to leave the field of Provincial
politics, to take part in the larger one, that
affects the people of the whole of Canada."
NOMINATIONS FOB CANDIDATES
were then made as follows:
Mr. J. Houston moved, and Mr. R. F.
Green seconded, the nomination of Mr.
A. H. Macneill.
Mr. J". M. Robinson and Dr. Morris
nominated Mr. Price Ellison.
Messrs. F. J. Fulton and VV. W. Rogers nominated Mr. J. A. Mara.
Messrs. H. Bentley and A. H. Macneill nominated Mr. R. F. Green.
Messrs. Ellison, Mara and Green all
declined nomination, and expressed a
desire for the nomination of Mr. A. H.
Macneill, which was then made unanimous.
Mr. Macneill accepted the nomination
and promised to do his best to carry the
constituency. He made an excellent
speech, and was warmly applauded.
The following were then appointed a
Committee on organization : Messrs. A.
W. Rose, J. McKelvie, Starkey, J. Mc-
Kaue, and F. J. Fulton, to report at the
evening session, and the Convention
adjourned till 6 oVlock p.m.
THE EVENING SESSION.
At tbe evening session Mr. A. W.
Rosa was elected Honary President, Mr.
R. F. Green, President,  Mr. J. F.  Mc-
Kane, Secretary, and Dr. Morris,
Tieasurer.
Addresses were then delivered by
Messrs. Garten-Cotton, Ross, McKelvie,
Robinson, Bentley, Houston and others.
Resolutions of confidence in Sir.
Charles Tupper, and of thanks to the
Chairman and Secretary were passed,
and tiie singing of the National Anthem
closed the meeting.
The Liberal Candidate.
The R)ss!and Miner in a late issue in
referring to the liberal candidate for
Yale-Cariboo says: "Mr. Galliher'n
nomination will be learned with surprise
by the electors throughout the Riding.
He is hardly known beyond the limits
of the corporation of Nelson; he has
never bad any political experience: and
the electors are utterly in the dark as to
his qualification. It surely," adds the
M.ner, "would have been wiser for the
convention to have found some niai,
who was more widely known, and whom
the voters could have cast their ballots
for with a reasonable assurance that he
was one who" would fulfill the expectations which would always be entertained fjr a member of the House of
Commons."
From this it is reasonable to inter
that Mr. Oalliher l>as been brought out
simply* as a last resort, and while his
party should be grateful to him for thus
filling the breach, it will require pretty
hard woik to induce the electors endorse
tbe selection of the Revelstoke gathering.
Mr. Bostock, had he again been a candidate, would, we think, have been defeated, and the chances of success for
the new candidate are very much smaller
than our present representatives at Ottawa would have held.
One ef Our "Native Born."
The Victoria "Times" state that Major
G. E. Sanders, who, according to press
despatches, was wounded in an engagement with the Boers in the forepart of
the month, is a man well known in
Victoria. He is also one of the few
native born sons of this [Province now
serving in S >uth Africa. He first saw
the light at Yale, his father, Judge Sanders, who is now in England, having
been at one time a member of the Legislature of this province, Major Sanders
was formerly superintendent in the N.
VV. M. P., and a graduate of the R >yal
Military College. He served in the
North West Rebellion in 1885.
The Times is no doubt mistaken as to
the birthplace of Major Sanders as he
was born iu the town of Lillooet. Many
people throughout the dictriut was not
aware that Lillooet has been represented in the war in Africa.
Good Roads Convention.
The Good Roads Convention, to be
held in Kamloops on the 27i.1j September
next, is an assured success. The matter
is being actively taken up by all the
public bodies of the lower Mainland and
Vancouver Island. Representative men
from all the municipalities aud Boards
of Trade of these sections have already
expressed the heartiest sympathy with
the movement. Members of the Provincial Government cordially endorse
the idea, and Beveral of them if their arrangements will permit, intend being
present on the occasion.
A. L. Green, ot London, Eng., has
been in town tbe past week looking over
mining properties*.
Mr. N. Bailey of Toronto, arrived in
town this week find will go up to McGillivray creek for a few weeks.
The dredger across the river at Horse
Beef Bar ia working away but so far we
have not been able to obtain the results
of the working.
James Brett came down from McGillivray creek the first of the week and
reports the Anderson Lake mill as running satisfactory.
Word brought down from Cadwallader this week states that work on the
Royal claim, owned bv P. V. Heath and
E. Ostrander, is proving a good property. The ledge is over tour feet in width
and of nice looking rock.
The new roller for the Ample mill is
expected to arrive daily and work will
be commenced again at once. Tbe Toronto-Lillooet Gold'Reefs property is
giving every satisfaction to the company
and to Superintendent Rives.
By last New Zealand papers we
notice that the Lady Ranfurly, sister
dredge to the now successful B.C. Cobledick dredge, scooped up 1,234 ounces of
gold (102Ibs. 10 oz.) for five days work,
and was well on to 2,0' 0 ok. for a week
when papers left. Also that the famous
Hartley A Riley dredge still paid 223,335
dollars iu dividends in 12 months.
At the Horse Shoe Bend propert) considerable work is being done and the
prospecting and preliminary work lor
the installation of a large plant is well
under way. The company who has
secured this ground are going to work
systematically and without a doubt will
ma.e a good proposition out of it. Tbe
ground is rich and it only needs proper
working to secure the gold.
Work on the McKinley claim on Cadwallader creek owned by Duncan Fraser,
Frank Tinkham, Paul Santini and
Archie McDonald, has shown it up to
good advantage. The ledge is now
twelve feet in width showing a good
body of mineralized ore. Frank T.nk-
hatn is doing the work and will endeavor to prove the McKinley one of the
best properties on the creek.
John Dunlop and A. M. Perrv who returned from Bridge River last week
made a quick trip leaving Lillooet Tuesday morning and returning Thursday
evening. They were up on business in
connection with the Lorne and Woodchuck group. Mr. Perry is an experienced mining man and has considerable English capital, is interested in the
bond on these properties and was very
much pleased with the showings on the
claims. .He left by special stage
Friday by way of Lytton and went east
at once for the old country to complete
further arrangements. Ttie taking over
of the Lorne and Woodchuck by such a
strong company means considerable for
the district and it will only be a short
time until further capital will seek Lillooet for investments. The property
will be worked on a large scale and considerable development work will be done
and the claims opened up thoroughly
before the installation of machinery.
Mr. Dunlop of Lillooet, has done much
to help the district and through his
untiring efforts has been instrumental in
interesting capital into the district.
Canadian Wins the Cross.
A special cable says that there is jubilation in Canadian circles, over the
aw.>rd, officially gazetted, of the Victoria
Cross to Sergeant A. H. L. Richardson,
of Strathcona's Horse. Richardson
uained the Cross at Wolve Spruit, near
Slanderton, on July 5th, when a small
party of Strathcona's engaged a double
number of Boers. After the order to
retire bad been given, Richardson, who
was on a vounded horse, rode back under a heavy cross fire, to within 300
yards of the enemy, rescuing a wount'-
nooper, whose horse bad been shot.
A. II. L. Richardson joined Strathcona's Horse in the Northwest as a
private in A squadron. His home, before coming to Canada, was at Sefton
Park, Liverpool, Eng.
Dawson Telegraph Line.
The Government surveying party engaged in constructing the telegraph line
to Dawson announces that the completion of tlie undertaking will not be effected before the end of October, a
month later than was anticipated. The
delay is due to unexpected obstructions
encountered between Hazleton and
Telegraph Creek.
All the European papers look upon
Kruger's flight with all bullion he could
lay his hands on as practically the end
of the war, and declare the flight
ignoble. '	
There is a report in Montreal that Sir
Wilfrid Laurier will announce the date
of dissolution at the Liberal demonstration at Sohmer Park, Montreal, on September 20. It is further rumored, in
the same connection, that the following
day, September 21, will see parlioment
dissolved. Rumor gives currency to the
date of the election, putting it at the
end of October, or the first week in November.
The decision of Hugh John Macdonald
to enter again the arena of Dominion
politics will give pleasure to every
Liberal-Conservative in Canada. Last
week amid tremendous enthusiasm he
was nominated as the opponent ot Clifford Sifton, in Brandon, and Manitoba
Conservatives express their confidence
that bis election will be assured. It
will prove one of the most interesting
and exciting contests of the campaign,
and will be watched eagerly all over the
Dominion. If past successes presage
future victory, tbe outlook is indeed
rosy for '"Hugh John."

FRIDAY. SEPT. 21, 1900.
A rather amusing story is going the
rounds which is quiet true with reference
to tlie person who ii supposed to represent this district in the provincial
legislature. A short time before the
elections in June, one of the numerous
miners in Lillooet, was leisurely resting
himselt on a bench, when this man for
partimentarv honors came along and
sitting down near him, slipped a ten
dollar bill into his hand and discussed
the political situation, which was quite
satisfactory. The miner wandered off
to the mines and when election day
came along, lo, there were only two
votes in the box at that polling boot.
for the man who had given the ten dollar bill. It was well known who cast
them, the miner voting opposite to the
way in which he had been pasted when
receiving the money. As a matter of fact
the man who produced his cash was
elected and it has given him regret ever
since that he had to loosen up the strings
on his miserly money bags, and from all
parties who he gave money to, he is
doing his level best 1o procure it whether
by fair or foul means. Shortly after the
elections the miner returned to town
and waB immediately pounced upon by
the member-elect who demanded the te i
dollars which he had given him before
election. The miner not having the
cash could not repav the bribe and to
tbe matter stood. The member-elect
attended the legislative assembly where
he put in his time venting bis personal
■pite and venom on respectable and
enterprising cit zens, instead of looking
after the interests of the district as he
should have. On his return to town,
the miner was in town, and this oue-cei,t
politician had no sooner got off the stage
than he waB after the miner again for
his ten dollars, hounding iiim until the
miner went to a friend and secured the
money and reiurned it. Of course this
is not buying votes or bribery on the
part of this philanthropic politician (?).
This is only one instance in the way
money waB distributed throughout the
district by the person who represents
the dictrict in the legislative assembly.

An Expensive Case,
Tlie sum of $300,000 is estimated by
tbe Rjssland Record to be tbe co3t of
tbe protracted litigation between tbe
On ter Star and Iron Mask companies,
w liicb was terminated out of court by
an agreement anions the parties at interest. Tbe now famous ca«e was begun in October, 1897. Mr. Durant, wbo
i lien owned tbe Center Star mining
claim, began action against tbe Iron
Mask Co. and secured an injunction.
This injunction was ton Milled by Mr.
Justice Lawton, but was subsequently
vacated by the full court. In Jan'arv,
1898, an action was begun by tbe Iron
Mask against the Ctnter Star. The
Bubject matter of these two actions was
practically tbe same, viz., as to tbe right
of the Center Star to assert extra-iater-
al rights vithin tbe Iron Mask minim;
claim. The matter came before tbe
courts on many occasions upon tbe application of tbe Contre Star to do wi r..
on tbe Iron Mask claim. Tbe action
came on in this city in April, 1898. After sitting for 14 days tbe trial was adjourned indefinitely, and it was not till
this summer tbat a date, viz., Sept. 17,
was fixed for continuance of tbe trial.
A large number of the most eminent
mining men in America had either given evidence or were retained to give
evidence at the approaching trial. After
the litigation had been in progress f >r
more than a year the Center Star was
purchased by Messrs. Gooderhan ami
Blackstock, wbo subsequently trans
ferred it to its present owners.
Britannia Deal.
Vancouver, Sept. 11.—The papers in
connection with the saleof the Britannia
group of mines have been forwarded to
England, and on their arrival there an
engineer will be sent to British Columbia to examine the group of mines.
Tbe English syndicate have already paid
$5,000 for tbe privilege of backing out
after tbeir engineer has inspected the
properties. Should tb« engineer's repori
tally with those who have examined tbe
properties before him, the second payment of $10,000 will be made, and, in
tbe words of Mr. George Martin, wb
represents the syndicate here, unless all
tbe banks in England fail, tbe mine will
be developed on a large scale, s-nelters
erected on the property, and millions of
dollars spent in extracting the mineral
from the rocks. During tbe second
negotiations the Britannia company
were offered $1,000,000 cash or $500,000
cash and 33 1-3 per cent, stock. The
second offer was accepted in preference
to tbe big cash proposition.
Westminster Heroes.
The New Westminister conquering
lacrosse team accompanied by Private
Brooking, arrived in New Westminster
at 9 o'clock Friday night having paid a
brief visit to Harrison Hot Springs en
route. On tbeir arrival tbey entered
carriages provided by the city, when a
big torch light procession was formed,
which escorted the heroes to tbe
Armory, the bugle band and the Duke
of Connaught's Own acting as an escort
to Private Brooking. Tbe guests of the
city were seated apart from, tbe public

The Sergeant Was Cool.
Towards the close of the battle of
Paardeberg, Lord Kitchener, when returning from an interview with Lord
Roberts, came upon a sergeant carrying
canteens of water for Ihe wounded. A
cannon ball came bounding over tbe bill
and knocked off tbe sergeant's helmet,
who coolly picked it up, brushed it with
his sleeve, and carefully placing it on
!lis head again turned to salute Lord
Kitchener, who, admiring bis coolness,
remarked, "A narrow shave that, my
man." Tlie sergeant replied, ajjain
saluting, "A miss is as good as a mile,
air."
Conservative Candidates.
As the Colonist anticipated, the Conservative convention last night tendered tbe nomination to tbe house of
Commons to Lieut-Col Prior and Mr.
Tnomas Earle, and those gentlemen
accepted it. We congratulate the
Conservative party upon Imving
such tried and proved standard
bearers, and we congratulate tbe constituency upon the opportunity to reelect two gentlemen who have shown
themselves capable representatives.—
