LILLOOET,    B. C, FRIDAY, MAY 23, 1913.
Change of Venue to Vernon
for Paul and Spintlum.
Jurors Summoned From Lillooet
Chief Justice Presides.
Highly Technical Case, Says Judge Calder
•     •     •
Whatever  the legislature I quantities, for which he was
may have intended in fram-jnot licenced.
Clinton Assizes will open June
2. It is expected that Chief Justice Hunter will be presiding
judge. In the Paul and Spintlum
cases a change of venue toVernon
assizes has been granted.
From Lillooet, John Dunlop has
been summoned to serve on the
grand jury, while the following
nine citizens have been called as
petit jurors: W. J. Abercrombie,
W. Manson, Roy Burkholder, C.
D. Ray, Duncan McDonald, Wm.
Durban, W. Haylmore, M.Foster
and W. G. Duguid.
Alleging that public feeling in
the Clinton district is so aroused
over the murders attributed to
Moses Paul and Paul Spintlum
that families have been terrorised
into moving out, that ranchers
have been carrying guns in their
rigs when they ventured out
along the roads, and that in the
state of public feeling a fair trial
for the two Indians is not possible, Mr. Stuart Henderson, K.
C, asked that the venue of their
trial be changed from Clinton to
Vernon assizes.
"Feeling is intense and the
public so nervous over these men
that if a murder was committed
in Clinton tomorrow, although
Paul and Spintlum are behind the
bars, I am sure they would be
accused of it," said Mr. Henderson. The application to change
the venue was opposed by Crown
Prosecutor A. H. McNeill, K. C,
who stated that the attorney-
general was desirous that the
trial be proceeded with at Clinton. "Among other reasons,"
said Mr. MacNeill, "it is important that the Indians in the district should see and know that
these men are given a fair trial.
They could not be present and
know this if the venue is changed." In his own affidavit, in
attempting to show that nearly
every man in the district had
been engaged in some capacity
or other in the hunt, for the two
men, Mr. Henderson alleged that
$40,000 had been spent in Clinton
by the attorney-general in his
efforts to secure the capture of
these men.
"I think that is to the credit of
the attorney-general. It shows
that he was determined to have
these men brought to trial at any
cost," said his lordship.
His lordship laid over decision
until the opening of Court in
Victoria on Monday, when he
granted change of venue to Vernon, where assizes opened May 22.

which was an exact parallel

it? With a full set of instruments

Under the circumstances it would
not be creditable to have to bring

Tuesday evening and proceeded

Hon. J. Dunsmuir and Other
Officials to Arrive June 1.
Party   Will Make Trip to Bridge
River by Automobile.
Hon. J. Dunsmuir, the largest
stockholder in the Coronation
mines, H. B. Thompson, president
of the company, and B. J. Perry,
director, are due to arrive in Lillooet at the end of this month, in
order to be present at the starting of the stamp mill at the Coronation, June 1.
Splendid progress is being made
at the mines, where a large
amount of free-milling ore of very
high value is on the dump ready
for crushing. This will be treated
this year. To operate the ten
stamp mill, Supt. C. L. Copp has
secured the services of Mr. E. C.
Semmens, formerly of the West
Coast of Africa, a mill man of
many years' experience.
Asked regarding   prospects a
few days ago,  Mr. Copp was reticent, smilingly remarking "We
. prefer to let the bricks talk for
.us in the fall."
Accompanying the party will
be Mr. Arthur Noel, who will
take in with him ex-magistrate
Williams, of Vancouver, and Mr.
"Pete" Ferguson, owner of the
Pioneer mine. The party will
travel to the mine by automobile,
a machine having already been
engaged for the purpose.
Mr. William Sloan, who owns
the controlling interest in the
Lome, will also be in about the
same time, for the purpose of
deciding upon a plan of operation

North Fork  Road.
While in Vancouver a few
days ago we were assured by
Mr. A. McDonald, M. L. A.,
that a commencement would
shortly be made on the construction of the North Fork
road to Bridge river. The
member corroborated the
statement made by the Prospector last week to the effect
that an appropriation for this
work had been made, and
promised his assistance toward securing an early start
on the work.
The need for this road is
imperative, both to the ranchers and miners of the district
which it is destined to serve,
and to the merchants of Lillooet. After waiting half a
century for the development
of the rich mining wealth of
which it is the centre, is Lillooet now to be robbed of the
harvest of its patience and
industry because of the lethargy, or worse, of the provincial and local authorities?
Such is the question which
has to be faced. With the
completion of the railway,
traffic and freight will be diverted at the Mission, unless
a direct and easy road is built
into town. The day of promises is long past, Action is
Location of P. G. E.
The location of the Pacific ■
Great Eastern road in the
vicinity of the town of Lil-
looet still remains shrouded
in mystery. That there is
continued delay in the commencement of grading con-
tracts north-east of Cayoosh
creek, is significant. To this
is added the announcement
that the much heralded steam
shovels will not be brought
in for several weeks. Why
the delay and mystery? Is it
because there is still doubt
regarding the location of the
line on the far side of the1
river? From well-informed
circles comes an affirmative

Over the Rockies by Motor Car is
Now Pleasurable Trip.
There is a great motor road
now in course of construction from
Banff to Windermere, in the Columbia Valley, eighty-five miles
south of Golden. From Calgary
to Banff, the road, ninety miles
long, is now complete. From
Banff, Alta., on the eastern slope
of the Rocky Mountains, to Windermere, B. C, is another ninety
miles. It is the intention to construct such a motor road that the
trip can be made in four or five
hours between Banff and Windermere, where the C.P.R. propose,
upon completion of the motor
road and of the railway now
being built south from Golden to
Windermere, to establish at In-
vermere, on lovely Lake Windermere, one of its largest tourist
In time this great national
highway will be continued from
Invermere across the Selkirk
Mountains to West Kootenay,
and from thence by way of the
Monashee Pass to Vernon, in the
centre of the northern Okanagan
district, connecting at this point
with all the Okanagan roads;
from there by way of Grand Prairie to Nicola, Princeton, and
across the Hope Range into the
Fraser Valley at Hope, thence to
The total distance from Calgary
to Vancou ver by such a road, for
the most part remote from the
main line of railways, will be six
hundred and fifty miles; it is hard
to realize, much less describe, the
possibilities it offers. The traveler
leaving Calgary in the morning
could lunch at Banff and spend
the night at Invermere, lunch
the following day on the west side
of the Selkirk Mountains and
sleep at the Arrowhead lakes.
With an early start on the third
day, he could lunch at Vernon
and spend the night in the Nicola
Valley. The fourth day would
take him through the Hope ridge,
and with a good run he could
make Vancouver that night.
Returning to the Banff-Windermere section of this route, the
Dominion Government is building
that part within the present
Rocky Mountain Park, a distance
from Banff to the summit of approximately twenty-six miles.
The Provincial Government of B.
C. and the C.P.R. are uniting in
building the B. C. section from
Vermillion summit to the Columbia Valley government road at
Sinclair Hot Springs, a distance
of sixty-two miles. The Dominion government has built a bridge
over the Bow river, and has two
large parties of men on the Castle
division. The work between
the Vermillion summit and Sinclair Hot Springs has been late
and will be finished in 1913.
The Castle division, where the
Dominion Government is now at
work, consists of an eight-mile
ascent on an average grade of
not over two per cent., through a
country which has been partly
burnt, but commands from practically all points of the road a
magnificent view of the Bow
river valley, with Castle and
Storm mountains close at hand.
Two pretty lakes lie at the summit, and no doubt at this point
within a short time a stopping
place will be erected.
The main range of the Rockies
at this point combines some of the
finest panoramic views in any
part of America. Paradise Valley
and the far-famed Lake Louise
district lie close to the northwest,
with Banff and Mount Assiniboine
to the south-west. The Vermillion Valley drops quietly down
between these two groups of
mountains at an easy grade, with
an average of two per cent., and
into this valley run the various
mountain streams that rise in the
glaciers of the main range.
At a point ten miles south of
the summit the various ochre
beds are situated; they have been
deposited from a mountain of
iron ore, and the Indians have
for many centuries here obtained
their red paint from this source.
On the west side of the valley
near here extend great grassy
slopes, locally called slides, for
avalanches of snow have cleared
off all their timber, and on these
moose, sheep and goats may frequently be seen. Excellent pasturage is obtainable here. The
camping-ground on the banks of
the Vermillion is really ideal.
From this point southward the
valley of the Vermillion widens
and the motor road traverses high
benches, crossing the creek only
once at the canyon. There are
two of these canyons on the river
caused by limestone intrusion;
both are very picturesque, though
shallow. In the deep pools below
them, which are easily accessible
to the fisherman, three to five-
pound trout may be seen swimming about unconcernedly.
The location of the road through
the valley has been carefully selected; in some places it boldly
crosses the foot of huge slides in
order to obtain better points of
view and avoid long detours. The
Vermillion river joins the Simpson on the west slope of the
Rockies, at a point not more than
thirty-five miles from Banff by
trail. The highway follows the
north bank of the Vermillion
below its junction with the Simpson, in full view of Goat Mountain, which has always been famous among hunters for its sheep
and goats.
Throughout this section of the
road and down the wide stretches
of the Kootenay valley the charm
of the environment is remarkable.
Neither hunter nor tourist could
find a more attractive region on
this continent.
Though there are over one million acres of fairly level land in
the upper stretches of the Kootenay valley traversed by the motor
road, all of it lies above an elevation of 3,400 feet, and, while
enjoying a mild climate, it is safe
to predict that it will never support any large agricultural population. The road through the
Kootenay section follows wide
benches on level grades for over
twenty miles.— Mr. Spragge, in
Saturday Sunset.

LA ROCHELLE AT REST. New Gasoline Contrivance May Much
Assist Mining Development.
Oldtimer Passes Peacefully
Away at Ripe Old Age. '       Another important mechanical
| aid to practical  mining develop-
'ment is about to be introduced in
Lillooet. This is an improved and
practical gasoline drill.    The first
to be brought  into  the district
| will   arrive from St.  Louis, for
| Mr. D. C.   Paxton,   as   soon   as
shipment can be made.    It  will
be used in the development of the
i Wayside mine, which Mr. Paxton
j purchased some time ago from
I Messrs.   C.  E.   Walker  and 0.
Ferguson, present owners of the;
Marconi group.
Mr Paxton has returned from
Cincinnati, where he has been
spending the winter. He will at
once proceed to Bridge river to'
superintend active development
work on the Wayside. This work
will continue all summer with as
many men as can be handled.
Speaking of the practical utility
of the new gasoline drill, Mr.
Paxton is enthusiastic of its possibilities and usefulness in the
early development of mines. Before it is economically practical
to install an expensive air-compression plant, this little machine
can be laid down with excellent
In construction it is a small
gasoline engine of from 1 to 3
horse power, directly attached to
the drill. Its cost is from $250
to $750, according to size. Its
consumption of gasoline is about
1 gallon per horse power. Owing
to the fact that there is no leakage from pipe line, or heavy
engine friction, the3-horse power
machine will do the work of an
8-horse power air compressor
plant, it is claimed.

La Rochelle,   one   of   the   best-1

years Mr. Rochelle lived in Lil-
looet, part  of the time ranching !
and mining at Bridge river, and
for the past 35 years on his ranch
at Pascelqua, where he died on
Tuesday morning at the ripe old
age of 88.   He retained his faculties to the last, bidding an affectionate farewell to the relatives
assembled   around  his   bedside,
and  giving a  few  final instructions on business affairs
He was born in Jolliette, Que.,
a descendant of one of the earliest Hugenot families to settle
in Canada. In 1855 the call of the
west became too insistent for
Fabian, and he took the long trail
to California in search of gold.
From California he, two years
later, joined one of the early
parties of gold-seekers, whose
objective was the Cariboo. He
arrived at Lillooet in the fall
of '58.
During the next 12 or 15 years
he was engaged in placer mining
and ranching on Bridge river, in
partnership with James Dickie.
This he continued until 35 years
ago, when he settled for the remainder of his days on the Pascelqua ranch.
He is survived by one son,
Baptiste; one daughter, Mrs. M.
Phillip, and four brothers, all
octogenarians.    Of these, Frank,
