Old Timer of Pemberton

300 lbs weight was Killed recently, 1802. It reminds me
of a Chinaman who captured one. and was towing it
through town, when a store
keeper says, Take ten dollars
for him, John ? Chink was
sure he had a treasure, and
it took every trader in town
all afternoon to refuse it. At
last he returned to the first
man, reluctantly willing to
make $10.. Mr. Ross said, .1
never buy porcupines when
it's raining.— This was in B.

DISCOVERY OF SOUESITE
During tlie process of cleaning
up on tne Iowa Lillooet Dredge,
a quantity of heavy sand was
obtained, having* a grayish color
and metallic lustre.
Mr. F. Soues of Clinto-i.. one
of tlie oldest Gold Commissioners in tlie Province, who lias always exerted himself in everything appertaining to the mining'
industry, forwarded a sample to
Dr. Hoffman of the Geological
Survey Department, for examination and analysis.
Dr. Hoffman has reported as
follows,— The sand consists essentially of small grains of an
iron-nickel alloy, some glistening
scales of platinum, some grains
of iridositiine, a few particles of
native gold, tis well as. a small
quantity of magnetic oxide of
iron, titanic iron quartz, garnets
in the following proportions : —
Iron nickel alloy 47
Platinum 43
Oilier minerals       10
Total 100
The iron-nirl-el alloy, which is
of a faint yellowish-gray color,
with a sub-metallic luster, is
strongly magnetic ! ou analysis
gave over 75 per cent of nickel.
There are only 2 cases known
where a mineral of similar composition  has been  found : — (1) The  Prospector,
in Awatiii. Bay, N. Z., where it is
fo und1 associated witli gold, platinum,, tin, chrome-iron ore, etc.
(2) on the Elvo, in Piedmont,
Italy, associated with gold,.etc.
Dr. Hoffman graciously proposes that this new mineral shall
be known as "Souesite," after
Mr. Soues, who drew attention
to it; and he also suggests that
the Dredge Co. should save their
tailings, which bliey are doing.
Quite apart from the iron-inek-
el alloy, which must be v.dnable,
seeing the constantly incretising
demand for nick el,—these sands
should be very valuable, platinum being worth in the neighborhood of $20 an ounce, and
the demand foi' this metal for
electrical and chemical purposes
is growing all the time.
Mr. (_!. Phair, Lillooet, recently forwarded a larger sample to
Mr. Soues, for examination and
report.
If miners working on the creeks
would save their sands, and forward for examination,, it inight
l&id to interesting, and possibly
valuable discoveries; and the discoverer would have hw name
handed down to posterity along
with that of F. Soues and others
who have done something for
the public benefit.

LADY COLEBROOKE.
Where Slie ti«t the i r»st Th»t W»4"9o
lull of M_.ni-ie~.nce."
lT(.'~-~ a good otory to id about
Lady Colebrooke, that prominent
Englishwoman who visited this
country last winter. Lady Cuie-
brooke. is of the- well known Pvu,et
family. Lord Colebrooke's ancestors
are oqMally aristocratic, and the Colebrooke crest) is a rampant lion, throe
doves over the head and a wolf
couchant above all. It. is an elaborate affair. When Lady Colebrooke
was dining out with one of the opulent hostesses of Long Island she
glanced casually at the dinner service, every bit of which was duly
embossed with a crest. She was accustomed to heraldic china and did
not at once, inspect the design minutely. Later in the evening, to her
great surprise, she became aware thai
the Colebrooke crest was upon all of
her hostesses' dinner service. "Where
did you.get this crest?" she exclaimed impulsively. The hostess replied
unconcernedly: "Isn't it a pretty
one? I picked it out when we furnished this house. It was the prettiest 1 could find, and those dear little
doves, I think, are so full of significance." I.ady Colebrooke murmured
sadlj', "So full of significance."

noy pains that I could

Heart  pains and   headaches
almost drove him wild—
Cramps in stomach and limbs.
The strong point in favor of Dr. Chase's
Nervo Food is the fact that it makes thorough
and lasting cures, and by building up the system, removing the cause of the disease.
Mr. James Wksliy Weaver, a veteran oi
the Fenian raid, Port Dalhousie. Ont., writes 1
" For years I wan afflicted with nervousness
aud dreaded insomnia, so
that I never knew for
three years what a full
hour's sleep was, never
more than dozing for a
few minutes at .. time.
Heart painsand headaches
almost drove mo wild. I
had spells of weakness and
cramps in stomach and
ilnbs.
"Though I tried seven.
...-.,.«. al doctors, it wa* money
Ma." WEAVKK"* uselessly spent. Finally
Dr. Chase's Nerve Food was brought to jna
and eight boxes cured me. It is simply. wonderful what benefit I have obtained from this

The Provincial OonBtable, Alex. C.
Minty, charged James Brett with supplying liquor to Hunter Jack. 8. Gibbs
J. P and E. 8. Peters, J. P. tried the
case. The first witness called was A. B.
Cora stock, night bartender at Eagleson's
liotel,—Sold a bottle of gin to Jim, for
$1.50 on the 15th between 7 and 10 p.m.
He had been drinking considerable, as
everybody knows. The bottle in court,
which Jack threw in the lake, and the
constable recovered, is the same brand.
Wm. Jack, sworn; Tyee Jimmy interpreting. Repeated exactly as at inquest
and added that Jack while sober stated
Jim Brett got the gin for him, and Wm.
Spallumcheen was present.
Wm. Spallumcheen. called.— On the
evening in question, the 15th, was with
Hunter Jack near the China store when
Jim Brett approached, and Jack went to
meet him. Alter talking they came and
sat down with William. Jim agreed to
get liquor and Jack gave him 1.50. Jim
says, Go and wait at the English church
which they did. In 5 minutes he came
and gave Jack a bottle of gin wrapped in
paper.
Dan Olman, Indian living at th* lake
stated he saw Brett and Hunter Jack together on the 14th (which ia probably a
mistake.) Jack and his eon slept at the
house of the witness on the night of the
15th. Jack said he forgot his Knapsack
at a Chinaman's.
J. H. S. Kowbottom, camping at the
Lake, was sworn :— Was visited by
Brett, who said Hunter Jack was dead.
Wanted to leave for the mountains, but
not suspiciously anxious to go.
G. D. Wray, called. Was foreman on
Coroner's jury and reviewed the circumstances.
The magistrates decided to impose a
tine of $100 and costs or four month's.

Jack, and the. lirst accounts were considerably twisted. The facts are as follows,— Constable Minty, along with 5
Indians, went to 8-mile point, on Seton
Lake, to inquire into the circumstances
in connection with the death of Hunter
Jack, as tie waa commonly styled ; ar.d
truly a very becoming name, as lie was
physically a good specimen of the race,
and ranked aa a first class big-game
hunter. He made his living trapping
and hunting in the vicinity of Bridge
Kiver. There ia evidence that his death
was no doubt caused by imbibing too
freely, (to wit: Gin.) as Jack and his
son started rip the lake well supplied
with Knyper's Extra, and drank excessively until 8-niile point was reached.
By this time, both were so drunk that to
make a landing on shore became imperative. The father was tumbling about
in the canoe, striking his head time and
again on the edge, as shown by bloody
marks. The son perceiving the predicament, .lack was in, assisted him as well
as he could to the beach, made a fire,
and went for assistance. In the interval
poor old Hunter'Jack succumbed, and
his death may no doubt be safely attributed lo the terrible spree which he had.
CORONER'S INQUEST;
Tyee Jimmy drove the Jury to Seton
Lake to view the body. They were as
follows:---Wray (foreman)1 Abercrombie,
Uren. McDonald, McArthur and Johnson. The doctor, constable, coroner and
others went up. The evidence was taken at the Court House. Mr. Deshielda
was sworn as interpreter. William, the
eon of the dead Jack Ttishpola, sworn;—
He and his father left Lillooet Monday
evening, stopping at Dunlop's store to
buy some goods, which William packed
to the lake, but JacK returned to town
This was about 8.30 p. m. He returned
at 1 a. in, and they slept together at the
lake. At 9 they paddled a little way to
some booms near the saw mill, where
Jack got a knapsack from shore, which
he said contained apples and oranges.
But at 4-mile point he got a bottle of gin
out of it. It was full and tea'ed. They
had a glass and both drank as often as
desired until a little past Inyas' place,
when Jack was sinning and getting very

drunk. Tiiey went to shore, and Jack
tried to stand up and fell down a great
many times in the stem of the canoe, a-
William held the bow. The lake was
rough. After a fall Jack lay still, and
the son waded out and got his father by
the arm-pits, and dragged him to the
beach; through the water. His shirt
got bloody from his father's head. Jack
revived and asked for gin; he drank the
remainder, nbout one fifth of a bottle,
and threw the bottle in the lake. Then
became very cold, so the son built a fire,
and went to Benjamin's place about two
miles, for help. He got there at 8. 30 p.
Got warm for half an hour and returned
alone. His father was dead. He was
not breathing, so he s'raishtened him,
wrapped a blanket around him and wen*
to Benjamin's. In the morning both
came lo town to tell Alexander who told
Tyee Jimmy. Cross-examined ;—He
did not come for doctor, when Jack got
sick, because drunk himself. The bodv
was not changed in position. Before returning to town from Dunlop" Jack gave
his money to William all but $2 which
he took to Lillooet.
Benjamin called. Corroborated William . Did not come or send heln, as he
bad been taking medicine and was not
strong. Benjnmin waa censured by Coroner Phair for his junction,
Dr. Clarke;— Examined the body,
a-
fonnd scalp wounds, not serious, no injury to the bone. Purine last 2 years
bad treated Jack for heart trouble, and
some time ago Jack said he would come
and get something for hi^ heart soon.
Probably the expoenre, liquor and exci'e-
ment proved too much for that already
laboring organ.
Sir. Minty stated the bodv was lying
in a very un sheltered place about 5 feet
from the water.
The verdict of tbe Jury is that Jack
Tashpola died from excessive drinking
and exposure.
He was about 70.
His brother from 22-Mile was at the
Inquest.
