Lillooet, B. C. Oct. 4th 1900.
WHAT ONLOOKER THINKS.
The very sudden dissolution of the
British parliament recently savors much
of that political "jockeying" generally
supposed to be foreign to British politics.
To dissolve parliament without informing before hand, even the private members of the government, would be looked
upon even in Canada as rather tricky.
The incident plainly shows that Lord
Salisbury and hisconferes are quite willing to take all the advantages of the inside track possible. However, the results of the elections will be a complete
walkover for the conservatives, probably
the greatest ever known in British history, owing to the complete disrupture
and demoralization of the liberal party.
It is invariably when a great leader dies.
Turning to Canadian politics, things
are generally getting warmer. The Hon.
Mr. Bernier announced last week in
Sohmer Park that the elections would
be over in two months. Meanwhile
both parties are in the throes of preparation for the great battle. May the
best side win.
There seems to be a considerable blow
about the conseivative party—especially
Hugh John's nose. Concerning the latter
many jokes(?) are being perpetrated by
the liberal press for instance: "The
Tories hope to win by a nose." "Hugh
John nose it all." etc. Both sides are
extremely confident. Sir. Wilfred
Laurier Hays he is as sura of being returned to power as he is of his existence.
Sir Charles Tupper says he will sweep
the country from sea to sea.
Our boys did very well in Kamloops
last week, and here's congratulation:
Still it may be said that if they had
stood more rigidly for their ordinary
every day rights they would have won
easily.
On Looker.
End of the War.
London, Sept 27.—The war is ended,
says the Lorenzo Marques correspondent
ot the Times. Many guns have been discovered and hundreds of wagons and
thousands of tons of stores of every description have been burned.
Burning wreckage lies in every direction in the Hectorspruit district.
Any good police force of 2,000 men can
effect the complete pacification of the
country. It will he impossible for the
Boers in the future to mass a force exceeding 1,500. They are sick of war and
the Irish-American and other mercenaries are clamoring for payment and
threatening the Boer officials.
Elections In November.
Toronto, Sept. 27.—It is rumored in
Liberal circles here that the general
elections will take place either on Nov.
15th or 23rd. This statement is supported by the actual fact that preparations are being made for registration
courts for voters to be opened in Toronto
constituencies on Wednesday, Oct, 10th,
instead of the usual date,
Why He is Different.
Hugh John keeps his promises. In
that he differs from the liberals. They
break their promises and keep everything else they get their hands on.—
Belleville Intelligencer.
Work will  commence  on the  Gilfoil
claims on Seaton lake shortly.
Mr. H. S. Southard returned Thursday from Cadwallader where has bean
negotiating for mineral claims.
James Brett and George Doherty are
doing the assessment work _n the Gold
Farm group on CadwcMad^r. owned bv
tbe Brett Brothers.
Arthur F. Noel returned from the
Bendor Mines on Wednesday afternoon,
bringing with hiur h.st months cleanup,
which is very satisfactory. He left
yesterday for the coast.
A. W. Smith is applying for a certificate of improvements for the flirain and
Copeland mineral claims situated on
Cadwallader creek, for the purpose of
obtaining a crown grant.
The Woodchuck cleaned up last wsek,
and closed down for a few days owinr to
the cold weather, but exp „t to uave
another run yet. The Woodchuck has
proved itself a good property this
season.	
The Lorne mine is working fine. On
the No 3. ledge, drifting has been going
on and producing good rock which is
being run through in one of the arrastra". The two arrastras working on
the other ledges.
We understand that, two or three apparently extensive bodies of ore have recently been encountered on the Whale
claim owned by the Toronto-Lillooet
Gold Reefs company, in excavating for a
trail that Superintendent Rives has been
making the last week from the Ample to
tbe Monarch claim. It is said the ore
assays high.
T. A. Brett was in town this week
from the Brett mine on McGillivray
creek and reports the mill as working
satisfactory, and are securing very good
returns as the result of the work. Work
on the mine is being continued on the
upper tunnel from which good rock is
being taken. The mill will be kept
running for about 30 days when they
will clesn up.
The new shells for the rolls at the Toronto-Lillooet Gold Reefs company
reached the mill on September 27th, and
were at once put in place, the mill starting up again on Monday. October 1st.
We understand that additional rolls will
be put in this month, which will double
the capacity of the mill. The mine is
looking fine with an abundance of ore of
excellent grade and the whole works iB
going ahead satisfactorily. Mr. Jas. D.
Chaplin, who is prominently connected
with the company, is expected in Lillooet
about the 9th of this month. His intention is to make a thorough examination
of the workings of the mine and mill,
and it is expected that his report will
induce the company to add largely to
the present plant.
L. G. Burn" one of the Woodchuck
ownerB, came down from the mines yesterday.   He leaves for the coast shortly.
At the Bend'Or mine the last week a
fine shute bas been struck on the upper
workings making the ledge four leet in
width of fine quartz.
Glenn & Richardson are building a
cabin for winter use on the Metropolitan
and will continue work on tbeir claims
during the winter.
Frank Tinkham returned *o town the
first of the week from Cadwallader creek,
where he bas been for several weeks
doing tfce assessment work on the McKinley slaim owned by himseif, D.
Fraser, P. Santini ond Archie McDonald.
He reports that a twelve foot ledge has
been opened up which shows good rock
and with the wor. done opens up and
improved the property considerably.
E. B. Isett and F. Hesser, of Pennsylvania who are interested in the Horse
shoe Bend property on the North Fork,
returned to town Monday from the
claims and left next morning by stage
for Ashcroft on their way home. They
were well pleased with their viBit and
the property. Work is going Bteadily
on with tie ditches, etc. for bringing in
water and by spring the property will
be in shape for working on a large scale.
nines unJ Mining.
The man who sells a mine for a million dollars, is generally credited with
great business sagacity. This does not
always follow luck and a great promoter
are large factors in disposing of mining
property. It is rarely that a prospector
makes a big deal, although Stratton of
the famous Independent mine of Cripple
creek and Thomas Cruse who sold the
Drum Lummon, are notable exceptions,
but in these instances the promoter was
large'v instrumental in placing the
properties. The average prospector
anxious to realize will frequently sell a
claim at a figure not at all commensurate with its value.
It takes money toopen mines and there
are but lew prospectors who are in a
financial condition to develop a property,
and others must determine its value.
There are many prospectors in the Fort
Steele district which are bound to make
big mines but tbe prospectors who find
tbem will not, unless he posses great
business capacity share in the result of
development.—Fort Steele Prospector.
British Elections.
London, Sept. 29.—One hundred and
sixty-seven constituencies returning
one-fourth of the membership of the
house of commons, made tbeir nomination to-day. Up to 1 o'clock this afternoon 58 members had been elected unopposed, comprising 43 Conservatives,
8 Unionists, 5 Liberals and 2 Nationalists.        	
Mayor Garden at Vancouver was the
unanimous choice of the conservative convention at Vancouver last week as a
candidate for the coming elections. Rev.
George Maxwell the sitting member,
was again selected by the liberals of Burrard. Mayor Garden will no doubt if
he accepts the nomination be the successful candidate.
LlLLOOET-KAflLOOPS   BASEBALL.
The Lillooet baseball club in this issue have a challenge for a baseball
match with the Kamloops team anytime between now and tbe end of this
year. The Lillooet club offers to play
for one hundred dollars a side, and also
allow Kamloops seventy-five dollars for
traveling expenses. The match at Kamloops last week was allowed to Kamloops, owing as tbe Sentinel says, on account of tbe Lillooet team refusing to
play another innings, when the score
was tie at the end of tbe ninth innings.
Tbe team claim they were used unfairly
by tbe Kamloops team and umpire.
From what we can learn of the match,
the Lillooet team should not have continued the game after the seventh or
eighth innings, when the disputes arose
which caused the trouble. The Lillooet
team and their friends were willing
to play the following day and offered to
put up their money, but the Kamloops
people refused. , It is lather lat6 in the
season to play another match, and think
it would be advisable for the Lillooet
club to hold back their challenge until
next season when tbe conditions will be
batter for play.
riacklnnon Block Sold.
One of the biggest real estate deals
ever made in the city, says the Vancouver Province, was closed wben the big
Mackinnon block at tbe corner of Granville and Hastings streets changed owners. Mr. J. M. Mackinnon, wbo built
the block, and who haa continued to
own it since its completion about two
and a half years ago, has Bold it to Mr.
Frederick de la Fontaine Williams, a
wealthy Englishman who was in town
about a month ago. Mr. Williams was,
when hore greatly struck with the appearance of the citv, and determined
to back up his belief in its future by a
sound business investment. The corner
ot Granville and Hastings street he
recognized as one of the very best, and
he opened negotiations for the purchase
of the block. Messrs. Robertson Bros,
conducted tbe transaction throughout
for Mr. Mackinnon, Messrs. Wilson &
Senkler acting for the purchaser. The
purchase price iB understood to have
been about $100,000.
Both buyers and sellers are to be congratulated on the deal. The property
has been a paying proposition from the
day it was finished, its desirable location
causing a rush for offices anywhere in
tbe building. It is .doubtful if there
has been a vacant room in the block for
two years past.
Mr. Williams, the purchaser, is a man
of much wealth. He owns a great deal
of property in England, and that he
should become interested in Vancouver
should prove a source of satisfaction to
all citizens.

Vancouver, Sept. 27.—Proceeding! are

calling out of the militia during the
fishermens' strike.

FRIDAY. OCTOBER. 5, 1900.
The nines in the Bridge river mining
diatrict have continued to show the
past season that they are good properties and have produced bullion to sub-
■tantiate it. It waa expected that tbia
season the Bridge River aection would
have more or !eaa of a boom, but owing
no doubt, to the lack of tranaportation
facilities and the money marketa of the
world being actively engaged in watching tbe progress of the wars, no capital
whatever has been invested, although an
English syndicate have bonded two of tbe
best groups of claims in the district for
an amount in the neighborhood of a
quarter of a million dollars, and will
make their first payment November 1st.
From what we learn from parties connected with the syndicate, the payment
will be made and work commenced on
the property this season, opening it up
in a mining way so that it can be easily
and properly worked, and machinery installed to take the place of the arraatraa
which are now milling tbe ore. With
anch a syndicate operating in the diatrict
it will naturally induce other capital to
make investments, and no doubt many
of the claims in the Bridge river when
opened up will prove to be bonanzas.
What the district needs ia some practical
mining men and miners, who, when,
they have a property will not hesitate to
do work on it and endeavor to induce
capitalists to take it over at a reasonable figure.
Next year there will be a trail on a
wagon road grade from Seaton lake to
the mines which will greatly help mine-
ownera, prospectors and parties coming
into the district to look over properties.
The new trail will be a great convenience
but it abould be a wagon road.
Other districts, if they had the showing
such aa there ia in Bridge River, would
have bad a wagon road two years ago
to their minea. Lillooet diatrict ia all
right, but ahould be pushed ahead more
by the people who reside in it, not all
hanging back and afraid to give an
opinion on anything pertaining to its
welfare. No opportunity should be lost
to put in a good word and to advertiae
the ricbneaa of the diatrict, and when
the people awaken to the fact that tbey
never encourage or induce an investor
in the diatrict, the better it will be for
all concerned. Lillooet ia gradually
coming to the front through ita own
merita and will without a doubt in a
very abort time become one of tbe fore-
moat mining campa in the province.
"Keep your eye on Lilljoet."
The men responsible for the candidacy
of Mr. MacNeill and Mr. Galliher are
determined that the campaign ahould
be conducted without the expenditure of
money, except the amounta actually required for the incidental expenaea of a
campaign. Thia ia a wiae determen-
ation. Why ahould a candidate be required to expend large auma of money
to secure an office that ia, at beat, one of
honor and not one of'profit? No honeat
man, who is without independent fortune, can hold office for any length of
time without making aacrificea. If a
buaineea man, he loaea largely through
being unable to give bia affairs personal
attention while attending to his public
duties. If a professional man the loss
is equally great for the same reason.—

Serious Bicycle Accident.
A serious bicycle accident occured at
noon last Monday at Vancouver at the
foot of Richards street, Mr. E. Black-
more, Bon of tbe architect, was riding
down on the Cordova street when he
collided violently with a lady who was
passing along tbe crossing. The lady
was thrown to th»» ground and when
picked up was found to be unconscious.
She was carried into a store close at
hand and a telephone message sent to the
hospital requesting that the ambulance
be sent. It was twenty min'ites, how.
ever before the vehicle arrived. On arrival at the hospital it waa found that
the unfortunate lady was suffering lrom
a broken collar bone aa well as concussion of the brain, and waa altogether in a serious condition.
It is stated that the young Blackmore
was coasting down the upper part of
the atreet and took hold of the handle
bars again only thirty or forty yards
away from the crossing. The lady seeing him coming, stood still, and as the
machine was not perfectly under control,
tbe rider found it impossible to chance
its direction sufficiently, and consequence ran into her with such force that
the crash was heard for some distance,
and the blow on the head which tbe
lady received as she was flung on the
asphalt was distinctly audible inside a
neighboring store. The unfortunate
woman died the aame evening at 7 o'clock without having regained consciousness.
Tbe unfortunate victim of yesterday's
bicycle accident waa iudentified thia
morning as Miaa. Shannon, a woman of
about fifty years oi age, who baa been
reaiding in Vancouver for some time
paat and is said to have originally come
from Ontario.
Tbeinqueat into the death of Miss
Shannon, who waa killed by a bicycle,
resulted in a verdict Thuraday of accidental death. The municipal authorities were recommended to take action
at once to carry out regulations regarding cycling.

Mining Boom About Due.
Reports from all parts   of British   Co-
Iniuliia indicate   that we  are   entering
upon a period of great  activity in   mining   devcloppieiit,    nays    tlie   Victoria
Tunes.   The attention of the world   lias
iiot yet been concentrated to any extent,
on mining properties on Vancouver   Is-
hind and tlie coast of this province, but
there is a feeling in the air that our day
is   at   hand.      There    is   probably   no
country   in   tlie    world    with   such   a
diversity of wealtii concealed within ihe
receBses of the earth as is to be found in
British Columbia.    Ii Wreck Bay   ha*

gang on quietly and reaulariy there and
every  tearner brings io a   consign men I
of the yellow dust   that all the■ world   if
eagerly in quest of.
A prominent mining man in the interior says he proposes to mine, ship
, and treat ore worth from $5 a ton np.
' If he proves to the woi Id that this can
be done in the interior of the province
the day when he commences operations
will be one of the most important in the
history of British Columbia. Be says:
"We must make copper at a cost of 5
cents per pound and to do so we will
have to overcome the long and expensive haul to New York and the rake-
offs connected with tlie handling of cop
per. Our next step ia to build our own
refinery, and I intend to start at this
work and keep it going until Britieh
Columbia is put in shape to compete
with the world." The importance of
this statement is known to all who have
knowledge of the conditions in Biitihh
Columbia. There are said to be
quantities of ore almost beyond human
epmputation wnicli would never be more
than waste under the conditions which
at present prevail, but which with the
advent of cheaper methods of treatment
will add vastly to the stores of wealth of
the world. Tiiere never wa3 any doubt
that the dav of low grade ores would
come—it has been drawing nearer by
slow decrees—but few had any idea that
it was so close at hand.
Then there are deposits oi iron ore
which are beginning to attract the attention of the world. lion enters so
largely into almost all the works of man
these days that it may fairly be said to
be king of metals. The product of the
world is increasing by millions of tons
yearly, and still the manufacturers shout
for more. They are said to be running
shortof this great necessity of Ihe industrial world in Borne parts of Europe
and to be looking more and more to
America for their supplies with each
passing year.

scene, the men, who are in excellent
nealth, making a splendid appearance.
After the march Loid Roberts addressed
them briefly. He said : "I cannot allow
you to depart w>thout expressing my
thanks for the appreciation of your
loyal service and excellent work, es-'
pecially at Paardeberg, on February 18.
I am sure that the people of Canada
will be pleased to bear bow gallantly
and how eplendidly yon have all behaved
in action. Deeply I regret the Iosech
you have suffered. I should have been
happier if you had returned in your full
strength; but no one could expect you
to pass through so arduous a campaign
yvithbut losses, I am torry that some
of you are obliged to return sooner than
the rest of the regiments, but I recognize the urgency of private affairs. I
am confident that the q leen and the
British people will never forget your
services. If it should ever be my good
foi tune to visit Canada, I hope to meet
you all again."
After the troops had given cheers for
the queen and the field-marsh all, the
latter shook hands with the commanding officers, and presented them one by
one to Lady Roberts.

A Paardeberg Hero.
There's a pretty little story being told
of how Private Brooking travelled home
in the luxury of a Pullman's pillows,
albeit the powers who should have provided for the invalided sold.ers proved
themselves very remiss in looking after
his comfort.
When he started westward from Que-
bes. Brooking was magnanimously presented with $3.00 in money wherewith
to buy his meals on the four or five days'
overland trip—mealu being 75 cents
each—and a second class ticket to the
coast, to use which he was forced into
the company of a little party of Chinamen in the colonist coach.
Brooking had got out of the unsavory
Casually Observed.
A detective lately asked Mrs. Blank,
according to the Chicago Tribune whether fihe had Keen a couple driving past in
a bungy that morning.
'• Yes," answered Mrs. Blank.
"Ah," said the detective, " now
we're getting on the right track. What
kind of a horse was it?"
"They weie driving so fast I didn't
notice that," replied Mrs. Blank. "But
the woman had on a Scotch mohair and
wool jacket of turquoise blue, last year's
style, with stitched lines, a white pique
shirt, with deep circular flounce, a satin
straw hat, tilted and rather flat, trimmed with hydrangeas and loops of pale
Muesurah, and her hair was done up
pom padour. That's all I had time^to
see."

Two B.X. stages brought in tbe Lillooet baseball team last Friday evening,
arriving about two hours later than
usual, owing to the train being four
hours late arriving at Ashcroft.
The "beautiful" snow came down very
low on the hills around town this week
and at the 21-Mile house on Monday
snow fell for several hours. The weather
has been rather on the wintery side for
the past week.
The Kamloops and Ashcreft lacrosse
teams crossed sticks again at Ashcroft on
Tuesday and resulted in a score of three
to nothing in favor of Ashcroft. The
Kamloops people will no doubt make
some plausible excuse for tbeir defeat.
The Lac La Hache annual races will
be held on Thursday and Friday, October
18th and 19th. Good purses have been
offerea and the meet promises to be one
of th* best yet held. A grand ball will
be held on the evening of the 19th.

The data of the Clinton races has been
changed from the 11th and 12th of October to the 10th and 11th, on account of
the assizes being held on the 12th. Over
six hundred dollars in purses will be
given at the races, and a good stock of
horses have been billed for the events
The lacrosse match between Westminster (champions of the world) and
Winnipeg teams at New Westminster on
Tuesday resulted in Westminster scoring
eleven goals to Winnipeg's none.
The Bridge river mail left for Cadwallader Tuesday morning. From the
amount of mail going into the district
the post office department should see
that increased mail service be
given the residents of that section.
Petitions have been sent in and replies
state that it would be attended to, but so
far nothing bas been done in the matter.
During the past week a few of the
young men of town have been playing
the national game—lacrosse—having
brought sticks over with them on their
return from Kamloops. It is hoped that
a team can be gotten up in Lillooet, and
as we are on the Fraser River where tbe
"salmon bellies grow" we may yet be
able to compete with our champions
who reside on the village near the
mouth of the Fraser. Of course we
would not like our neighboring towns to
take their defeat to hard if we played
with them and say the result was no
doubt due to the town of Lillooet being
on the Fraser River and that owing to
Westminster being on the same stream
we had imported crack players. As soon
as a team can be arranged the emblem
will be a salmon and Lill joet will do its
best to uphold the reputation of this
portion of the mighty Fraser.
