A large amount of good faithful development work is being done on several
of the groups outBide of the Ida May
and Bend 'Or.
On the Lome owned by J. Williams,
N. Coughlin, W. Young and J. A. Murray, a fine showing has been made.
Three fine ledges have been located and
opened out, all three showing free gold
acioss the face of the ledges, are from
one to five feet in width and are all true
fissure veins. The owners are satisfied
that they have a good thing and speak
of putting up a small stamp mill them*
selves and working the property.
Work on the Bend 'Or is going forward steadily. This camp looks quite
pretty, with all the new buildings and
tents it forms a regular village. Mr.
Benson the assayer, is at the camp at
present and is making tests of the rock
across the face of all the ledges to determine the approximate value of the vein
matter.
In the Ida May camp two shifts of
men are at work in the main tunnel.
The main ledge is widening out and
is nearly vertical at present working.
Some fine ore is!to be seen on the dump,
some of it showing a good deal of sulphates. Mr. Circle the manager for
this company has the name of being a
first class engineer and is pushing the
work to the very best advantage.
The Pioneer claim, Messrs. Allen and
Attwood prospecting, is putting up a
good hand. The main ledge is as rich
as anything in the camp and is showing
itself to be a fine strong lead.
The ninth passed off quietly, though
a " dry day " according to some of the
thirsty looking voters.
Miss Morrison arrived in camp this
week and is staying with Mrs. Owens at
their Palace de Beans.
The weather here at present is fine.
The nights are still cool, but without any
more summer frost.
The outlook for the future prospects
of the camp are good only requiring the
necessary capital and energy to make it
one of the richest districts in the province.
J
The Bend 'Or Group.
The Bend 'Or group consists of two
claims And a fraction, the White Crow,
Little Joe and Bend 'Or fraction, and
are situated about four miles from the
mouth of Cadwallader creek. The owners of the group are J. M. Mackinnon
and Robertson Bros. Vancouver, and
Arthur Noel of Lillooet.
Word received lately from the property reports the ledge as widening out
considerable as the work progresses and
that character of the rock is good. When
work was first started on this property
the ledge was quite narrow, but is now-
over three feet wide. Active work has
been done at this property as over 2,000
feet of a tunnel has been driven and the
work all done in first class shape. The
cabins around the claims are all that
could be desired and the owners have
spared , no expense to make the living
quarters comfortable preparatory for a
good summer and winter's work.
About a dozen men are now working
and it is the intention to shortly increase the staff. At present they are
working two shifts and are getting quite
a lot of ore on the dump.
The first of the week a lot of material
and provisions were sent up to the mine.
The owners of this property have spent
considerable money and well deserve the
success that is awaiting them. The Bend
'Or group were among the first claims
staked on the Bridge river and have the
more work done on them, than any in
that neighborhood. Mr. A. Noel who
superintends the work is at present
on the ground as is also Mr. Benson the
assayer who is testing the ledge in different parts.
WHERE  ARE  WE?
niNING NOTES.
Late reports from Bridge River say
that the Pioneer claim on Cadwallder
creek is improving considerably. The
Pioneer is owned by W. Allen and H.
Attwood. ___
Mr. Smith the superintendent of the
Forty Thieves mine passed through
town last Monday for Vancouver. For
the present work has been suspended,
but it is expe ted will be resumed shortly.
Across the lake opposite McGillivray
creek are a number of undeveloped
claims showing good iron capping. The
owners are perfectly satisfied with the
looks of the claims and will shortly
start doing their assessment work.
A party of five men left the first of
the week for a trip into the Bridge river
and after looking over that section will
continue to the Blackwater country.
There is some talk of a party of men
leaving town shortly to prospect some
large ledges found there some time ago.
F. O. Richardson, W. McAllister, Mr.
Boxer, M. Gaynor, C. M. Glenn A.
Thatvage, George Gibson and George
Lasher will leave for bridge river on
Saturday. They are all intere-ted in
and around Cadwallader creuk and will
prospect and work their claims.
Oharles By water of Kalispel, Montana,
arrived in town Monday with three pack
horses and left fur the Bridge River
where he will spend the season prospect*
ing. Mr. By water had intended going
overland to Klondike, but changed hi*
plans when hearing of the richness of Bridge River and decided to tackle a Klondike with lees hardships, nearer home and as bright prospects as the northern country.
The election passed of very quietly in
Lillooet and there was no more than the
ordinary excitement. The result of the
poll in the town of Lillooet satisfied the
people that Mr. Smith was a sure winner. The results of the other polling
stations of this dirtriot were all in by
Monday morning.
Arrangements had been made with
the telegraph com pany to secure the returns for the whole province, and during Saturday evening several bulletins
were received, but it was not until Sunday noon that it was known that the
elections troughout the province were
about a tie. Later bulletins announced
the Opposition two seats ahead and
Cassiar to hear from, with two members.
The Cassiar election comes on later and
will no doubt elect government men,
which will makes both sides a tie. Until Cassiar is heard from it stands Opposition 19 seats, Government 17. It is
reported that a few defeated candidates
will contest the election.
The following is the result of the vote
in West Lillooet district between Mr. A.
W. Smith, government, and Mr. E. S.

Horse Beef Bar Dredger.
The  Dominion  Gold   Dredging  and
Placer  Mining Company, who have a
lease of valuable ground  on the Frase?
! river, and whose headquarters  in this
| province are in  the  town of  Lillooet.
: have in course of construction a power-
i ful dredger to be utilized in dredging the
I Horse Beef Bar about 1 miles down the
river  from  town.    This  bar is well
known to be exceedingly rich and it is
expected that the company will reap a
handsome reward for their enterprise.
The contract for the work has been
let to Messrs. Duguid and Miller of this
town who assisted by some of the most
competent merchanics in the province
are pushing the work through as quickly
as possible. It is needless to say from
the character so well known of the contractors that the work will be excellently
performed.	
McQILLIVRAY  CREEK.
McGillivrav creek a stream emptying
into Anderson lake from the west side,
and about thirty-five miles from Lillooet
is attracting considerable attention.
Large bodies of quartz has recently been
located which shows up good, and a
well defined ledge can be traced for a
distance of about 7,000 feet, showing up
tine the whole distance. The ledge has
been stripped for some distance and free
gold is visible, and it is claimed to be
one the largest ledges in the district.
Brett Brothers were about the first on
the ground and secured several good
claims. The claims staked are about
two miles from the mouth of the stream
and run up the creek, although a few
ciaiuse have .been et£k?d Qe«r the mouth
the ledge crossing the stream there.
A number of prospectors have gone
into McGillivray creek lately with the
intention of prospecting more thoroughly this part of the country. Parties
who have returned from there state
that it is one of the best propositions in
that district and predict great results
from the prospects.
James Brett left last Saturday evening for their group and will spend a
week or so doing work, opening up the
ledge in different places to prove its.,
work. Assays have been made of
samples brought doftp and have gifen
satisfactory results.
Several years ago a number of claims
were staked near the Brett Brothers
claims, but nothing much was done
with them, as at that time quartz properties were not of much account.
McGillivray creek has many advantages for mining. It is about thirty-five
miles distant from Lillooet and the cost
of getting in supplies would be trifling.
From McGillivray creek their is sufficient power obtainable to drive any
amount of machinery and the fall is so
rapid that there is no necessity to go
any distance to obtain the requisite
power.
The ledge which runs along side McGillivray creek is a continuation of the
rich belt running along Cadwallnder
creek on which are the Bend 'Or and
Ida May groups and a numbe. of other
valuable claims have been staked, and
continues over the mountain down to
McGillivray creek.
We expect to give a fuller account of
this section as work progresses, and for
the present the indications ere good for
a permanent camp. 2.

LILLOOET, B. C, THURSDAY JULY 14, 1898.
SALUTATORY.
Tiik Pkospectok comes to you to-da\
and makes its initial bow, trusting that
it  may impress you  favorably and win
for  it your friendship and esteem,    li
was the intention   to  issue  the  first ot
the month  but union-ten trouble necessitated   delay.   Tiik   Prospe. tor   wiii
try and give reliable mining news of th
Lillooet and  Bridge River (listriots, an<
will advocate all necessary improvements
to forward the development of the grea
mining industry.
As is well known locally and believed
by all who have visited this eection of
the country, that Lillooet and Bridge
River is d«8tined to become one of tin
greatest mining camps on the face of
the earth. We do not hesitate to say
thattherichnes8of Bridge river will soon
arouse capitalist who are always looking
for good investments, and will startle
the people of this continent as Las
other mining camps on this continent.
Its a KlontljkiL. near home. Gold has
been found on Bridge river and Oayoosh
creek for years, but not until the last
few years were the great quartz ledges
• laid bare by the prospectors who have
energetically kept hunting away, following up the rich float.
Tiik Prospector is not very large, b.ut
it is the intention to make it as newsy
as possible.   So far. the oat-onage ha«
• been good and as business increases Tiik
Prospector will do likewise.
The interests of Lillooet district will
be kept to the front as far as it is in
The Prospectors power to do so, and
the neighboring utfning districts will receive due attention.
The publisher believes that all conditions are favorable for the successful
founding of a newspaper in the chief
.town of the Lillooet districts; that while
The Prospector will not fill "a long
felt want" it will at least prevent the
creation of that want, by giving to the
people a paper that will use its influence
at all times for their good and for the
good of the Lillooet country; that the
mineral resources of the district entitle
it to all things aiding and tending towards its speedy and thorough development, and for the accomplishment of
this no factor can prove ..more, powerful
or wide reaching in its effects than a
paper that will honestly and faithfully
represent eveiy interest as.it really. It
is the publishers, purpose to abstain
from boom methods but at the same
time to give the district every chance to
show to the world what it possesses and
what i,t can do.
Inexhaustible stores of wealth await
the courageous and persevering prospectors of Lillooet district.
It is near time that some arrangements were made by the postal authorities to establish a mail service into the
Bridge River country. At present the
prospectors and miners in this district
are lift to the mercy of their friends
who occasionally may bring a few letters
into them. There are probably in the
neighborhood of 500 men in the Bridge
River district, who are left without communication to the outside world. We
would like to bee this matter taken up
and the attention of the pioper authorities dawn to it, who no doubt would
take steps immediately to alleviate
the present state of affairs. How about
petitioning our member, Mr. Bostock
probably he could assist matters.
The Prospector will be published
every Fiiday heieafter. This week we
a»elater than exptcttd, but for the first
i^-sue cont-iueiable wotk is necessary
getting plant and material in shape.
The plant-was purchased from the Toronto Type Foundry's branch at Vancouver, and this office will be prepared
in a few days to do all kinds of punting.
Any person wishing job work of any
kind would do well to give The Prospector office a chance. Work will receive prompt attention.
HoteL
If prospectors who owned mineral
claims would do more work on their
claims recorded and less indiscriminate
staking, it would be better for the prospectors and for the country in general.
All the claims so far which has had any
work done them in the Bridge River
has proxpd to have a good showing and
when capital comes along there is some-
tbing to show for the price that is
asked. The law respecting locating of
mineral claims should be modified.
The candidates in the district of West
Lillooet for the provincial legislature
were A. W. Smith, government, and E.
8. Peters, opposition. The result of the
election is that Mr. A. W. Smith was
re-elected to represent this district for
another four years. This is the fourth
time that Mr. Smith has been chosen
by the people of this district to repfe*
sent them in the legislature, .which
goes to show Mr. Smith's standing in
the district.

The results of the provincial elections
are coming to hand very slowly. Returns from bix districts have to come in
and the probability is that they will bej
divided equally making the the number
of seats to each party 19. Cassiar election takes place later. There will in all
probability be another election.
An appropriation of $1,000 was made
in the estimates by the government for
lire protection for the town of Lillooet.
Will the people (f Lillooet take the matter up and push it to completion? The
columns of this paper are open to sug-!
gestions on this subject.

SPANISH FLEET DEHOLISHED.
Admiral Bam peon totally demolished
the Spanish fleet under Admiral Cevera
on July 4th. Ceveras fleet attempted
to escape late at night. Several ships
were forced ashore, burned and blown
up within 20 miles of Santiago, and a
couple were destroyed four miles of the
port. The Spanish loss will probably
be several hundred from fire, explosion
and drowning. There are about 1,300
prisoners including Admiral Oevera.
General Shatter holds Santiago and
has probably bombarded it by this time.
Telegrams from Dewey says three
-ransports have arrive 1. Tl e Charleston
captured Caum, Ladrones Ielands. They
brought the Spanish officers from the
garrison, and six officers and 52 men
from Manilla.
A Spanish gun vessel came out from
♦ he river near Manila and surrendered,
having exhausted her ammunition and
ood in repelling the attack by the insurgents. She had on board 62 officers
and 94 naval and military.
Drilling Contest.
The drilling contest which took place
here on the first of July, aroused considerable excitement. It was expected
that teams would compete from the
Golden' Cache, Bend 'Or, Ida May and
Forty Thieves mines. The Golden Cache
and Bend 'Or men showed up, but l>e-
lore the contest took place the Cache
men withdrew from the contest, and
two untrained men from the Ida May
••ame forward and contested the Bend
Or men. A large boulder of hard granite had been prepared  for the contest.
The Ida May men drilled 6 inches in
1% minutes, and the Bend rOr men
drilled 12}4 inches in 1%, minutes. The
winning Uam were in pretty good condition, while the other team had not
prepared for the contest. It is hoped
that teams from different mines get together this fall and have a good drilling
•ontest. Tnere are a number of good
drillers employed in the mines in the
listrict and should make an exciting
ontest.
Work has been suspended for awhile
•n the Excelsior claim, lying along the
mountain side, southerly from the
rolden Cache claims. Messrs. J. H.
Smith and Oleson who have been em-
u'oyed on the claim are still in that
vicinity prospecting. Considerable
work has been done on this property.
J. Gilli-eie was in town this week
from Tyauchton creek. He and his
partners £. £. Wilson and T. Keart>8
have recently recorded several claims
•n Trout lake. The ledge can be traced
for some distance and the indications
tor the claims are good. Mr. Gillissie
(tame to town for more provisions and to
get assays of his rock. He returned
Thursday and will do some development
work and see what they have.
The Blackbird mineral < laim between
the Ida May and Lome and owned by
William Young and partners, hap a
splendid showing and work has l* n
lone on it to open up the ltdge. The
prospects for the Blackbird are good. THE   PROSPECTOR.
A Big Coast Strike.
Word has been received in Vancouver
ff one of the biggest stiikes that has-
been reported along the coast for a lon«;
lime. The claims are located on Theo-
dosia Arm, Malisrina Inlet, and are
about one mile back from salt wat°'.
About two months ago the owners,
ITessrs. Mackinnon and DeBei k received
word from a prospector in their employ
of a s'rike in that seet'en. S me samples
vere sent down from u.e cropping.
These were found to run about $8 pei
ton in all values. S nee then work has-
been in progress and now comes the
n >ws of the successful outcome of the
venture.
The vein can be traced for some 1,700
feet and is 10 feet wide. In the vein is
u,pay streak two feet wide. S mplcs
f om this have been submitted to analysis and found to contain $2 gold. $33
silver and $15.60 copper values per ton.
The vein matter in this streak is a chal-
cpyrite. The remainder of the vein
goes $19.24 per ton and is found to on-
iain beside this value some 40 percent
znc. As there have been aconsidei-
able number of inquiries lately for good
zinc propertii s this is a valuable fea'im
of the ore and will add materially to the
value of the property.
In all, seven locations have been
made ami from its location the property
will no doubt contribute mateiially to
the growing prosperity of Vancouver as
a mining center.
The Le Roi Sale Off.
The deal for the purchase of the Le
Roi mine at Rossland, by the British
American Corporation for $3,000,000 was
declared off by all parties concerned. A
cablegram was received from London
stating that unless the deal could be put
through by July 12th* the $300,000 put
up as earnest money by the company
would be withdrawn. The British
American Corporation people went to
tho^e who were upholding the sale and
asked if they could deliver the property
by July 12th. The reply was that they
did not think they could do so. Then
"the British American Corporation people went to the Turner faction and ask-
ed to have withdrawn the check for
$500,000. The Turner faction joyfully
agreed to the proposition.
The Championship Sculling.
The championship for the worlds
single sculling is still held by J. G.
Gaudaur. The race which took place
last Saturday at Vancouver resulted in
a bad accident to Johnstons skiff by
striking driftwood. Gaudaur waived
till right to the race and so the racj was
postponed, until Monday evening, when
it was rowed on a different course th in
on Saturday. Gaudaur winning by
about four lengths. Gaudaur received
considerable praise for the way he acted
by calling it off and giving Johnston
another chance. The race was for the
championship and a puree of $2,500.
Six Hundred Drowned.
New York, July 6.—News reached this
city this morning that the French trans-
Atlantic company's steamer La Bour-
gogne, which left New York on Saturday last for Havre, had been sunk after
a collision with the British ship Cromartyshire in a dense fog, 60 miles south
f Sable if Find. The collision occurred
it 5 o'clock in the morning on Ji^y 4th.
Only 200 i ersons out of 800 souls on
hoard the La Bmrgogne we e saved.
The Cromartyshire laid to and picked
up the 200 seaman and passengers who
were rescued, transhipping them to the
Allan liner Grecian, which came along
shortly afterwards. The Grecian towtd
ihe disabled steamer to Halifax, her
bow was b-d'.y torn away.
