Array THE PROSPECTOR
VOL. 3, NO. 10
LILLOOET,   B. C, FRIDAY,   DECEMBER 26, 1913.
$2 PER YEAR
CO-OPERATIVE MINING.
ITEMS ABOUT TOWN.
I ^*"■**?*-'—,r*p*■ "^*^*tk*""--
The miner will work underground six months in the year to
save up enough to prospect in the
hills during the summer season.
There are some who are not fortunate enough to secure work
during the winter months and
who, to defray their living expenses during the dull season,
are obliged to part with some of
the best claims they have located
for a mere song. So that the
man who really endures all the
hardship of discovery is he who
fares the worst in ninety cases
out of every hundred.
Is not mining a branch of business in which co-operation would
be advantageous ? Miners and
prospectors are scattered over an
unlimited area in small unorganized bands. Their work is tedious
and hard, their privation great,
and nothing but that infatuation
which their mode of life seems to
instill—the hope of striking it
rich some day—could induce them
to persist. Instead of scattering
in all directions, would it not be
better for a few practical men to
get together, pick out. the most
promising claim on their list, and
co-operate in working it for all it
is worth? At present they often
sell their claims for a few dollars,
the property passes into the
hands of another, who accordingly turns it over for four or
five times the price paid, and so
on until finally ijt conies into the
possession of some syndicate that
^ttfepST th#p««ts«H9T?fi^b\^grr>4
into the pockets of the original
locator, and would be his if he
but conducted his business on the
co-operative plan. Instead of
selling undeveloped properties
for a mere trifle, he might, on
this plan, develop them and rake
in the big money. Such a system
would also be more beneficial to
the country at large and tend to
its speedy development.
One developed property in a
district does more to establish a
reputation than a score of prospects, however good they may
be. It does not require more
capital than the ordinary miner
or prospector generally possesses
to go into a scheme of this sort.
When men show their faith in a
property by devoting all their
energies to its development they
naturally gain the confidence of
capital.
Practical men will know a good
thing when they see it, and if it
be their own, they will work it
more energetically and economically than if it were in the hands
of some corporation. Sufficient
work can generally be done by
hand and a cheap plant installed
to demonstrate the value of a
property before heavy and expensive machinery maybe introduced.
Mining is essentially a business
adapted to the co-operative plan.
A dozen men or so, bound by ties
of self-interest, if nothing else,
could accomplish much in this
way. The plan is at least one
worthy of consideration.
LILLOOET POLICE COURT.
Down on the Lytton road, about
half-way, there will be some mining developments take place in
the course of a few weeks. There
is also likely to be a great transformation take place in that locality, in another line of business,
which will command wide-spread
attention.
Alex. McLeod, of the Pemberton district, is on a business visit
to Lillooet.
There is a big bunch of railroad
men in town; they are evidently
having a big time of it.
Black ground on Christmas day
with a temperature of 40 degrees.
Light frost in the evenings—perfect spring weather.
A big dance will be held in the
Santini hall this evening. Tickets
are $2.00 each. Some fine music
will be provided.
Thos. P. Reed, with his usual
urbanity, kept up his usual custom of mixing a cauldron of Tom-
and Jerry on Christmas Day. He
had many visitors.
A white chef is now in possession of the Victoria Hotel kitchen.
The Christmas dinner prepared
by him is a recommendation that
will enable him to make Lillooet
his permanent place of residence.
Some heavy mails have come to
Lillooet this week—the heaviest
on record. There ' "S been no
Christmas holiday for the postmaster.
Recent arrivals from the Pemberton Meadows report great progress along the construction .line
of the P. G. E. railway. Fine
weather has prevailed, with very
little snowfall.
Excellent dinners were provided by, the hotels and restaurants of Lillooet, yesterday. The
recent corner on turkeys did not
seem to have the desired effect,
as that fowl was in conspicuous
evidence on all tables.
According to reports, hard
times are being experienced on
the coast this winter. A visitor
to Lillooet during the last few
days would form the impression
that some kind of a boom had
struck Lillooet.
Wm. Baker, a good and popular
man on the constabulary force of
Lillooet, has been granted a short
vacation, so Bill seized the opportunity of visiting relatives in the
Kootenay country. He left town
Wednesday.
Sixteen-inch fire-wood has now
soared up to $13 a cord—and
scarce at that price. For an
obvious reason some people deem
it advisable to keep their fuel
under lock and key, and even
then there is sometimes complaint
of a shrinkage.
A few days ago three deer approached to within a couple of
hundred yards of the main street
of Lillooet—just north of the
court-house. They were seen by
several of our residents. The
various noises of the town did not
seem to bother them.
The proprietors of the Excelsior Hotel are making preparations for a dance, to take place
on Wednesday evening, 31st inst.
An invitation is extended to the
general public. The large dining
room will be appropriately decorated, the best of music will be
provided, and every effort made
to provide an evening of enter-
ment for the stranger as well as
the citizen. Abercrombie has ap
pointed himself floor manager,
which is a positive guarantee of
propriety and decorum. Thus
will the year 1914 be ushered into
the town of Lillooet.
WHAT ALL THE PEOPLE SAY.
During the last week the following list of visitors was obtained from the "skookum-house"
register. It is not by any means
a complete list:
John Ericson, charged with
having liquor on a reserve, was
fined $30.
Alfred Copeland, paid $30 for
the same offence.

Frank Cross, theft, suspended
sentence.

1 month.
An Indian named Elaan was
given four months for vagrancy."
Thomas Hanson, drunk and
disorderly, $5.
Thos. Clancy, drunk $5.
John Harry and Joseph Joe,
for having liquor in their possession, were fined $10 each.
(Turning over a page on the police
register we found 17 more cases, with
a foot-note that 9 more prisoners were
to arrive from the Fountain Indian reserve this morning, and as there are a
dozen prisoners still in the lock-up,
with good indications of more coming,
we took a walk).
That Lillooet has the best climate in the whole of British
Columbia.
That Bridge river promises to
develop into one of the best gold
camps in the west.
That the railroad will make
base ore propositions a paying
investment.
That we have unlimited water
power and timber for all practical
purposes.
That the agricultural and horticultural possibilities are the best
in the province.
That big game hunting is equal
to any on the continent of America.
That you had better come to
Lillooet and see for yourself.
Henry Murk has just completed a handsome residence on
his ranch a short distance south
of town. Mr. Murk contemplates
some extensive improvements on
his property. When finished, he
will have one of the prettiest little
places in the vicinity of Lillooet.
The Ashcroft people have just
finished an up-to-date skating
and curling rink, and are anxiously waiting for a cold snap to put
the institution into commission.
They evidently have considerable
confidence in tneir curling and
hockey abilities, as they are about
to invite contestants from eastern Canada or even Scotland.
Good. But they had better give
Walhachin their promised beating
first.      	
The town of Smithers, a new
divisional point on the line of the
Grand Trunk Pacific, now has
electric lights, a theatre, a telephone system, a new postoffice,
a hockey rink, two newspapers,
banks, and all usual business establishments, and a modern hotel
whs opened a few days ago. The
citizens are now taking steps to
open a school. This is one of the
fastest growing towns in all British Columbia.

DECEMBER 26. 1913.
LILLOOET.
Christmas has come and gone;
a few more days, and the year
1913 will be a record of the past.
While the past year may not have
been as prosperous to many as
they would like, the outlook of
the coming season is very encouraging. A most decided change
will have taken place in this district ere Christmas comes again,
the old order of things will have
disappeared, the population will
be of a more permanent nature,
and the railroad passenger train
will be the cause thereof.
The town of Lillooet,  as most
of our readers are aware, is one
of the oldest settlements on the
mainland of British Columbia. In
saying this of course we do not
refer to the Hudson's Bay Company forts, which have existed
for very many years all over the
great stretch of country, which
is now the Dominion of Canada.
The Hudson  Bay forts were not
settlements in the proper sense
of the term,   but were merely
trading posts for the purpose of
bartering  with the Indians for
furs.   The Hudson's Bay Company did not  encourage settlement; in fact, it was not its policy
to do so, as settlement tended to
diminish the supply of furs.   In
1858, in consequence of the discovery of gold in the Fraser, a
large rush of miners took place.
In   a  short time a large  camp
sprang up at Lillooet, there being
fully   5000  inhabitants   in   this
town and in  its companion camp
on the opposite bank of the river,
called Parsonville.   In the course
of a couple of years a large quantity of gold was washed out of-
the gravel benches around Lillooet.    Then came the discovery
of the rich diggings in Cariboo.
An exodus of the white miners
took place, Parsonville was completely   deserted,   and   Lillooet
probably also would have ceased
to exist but for the fact that the
route from the coast to Cariboo
passed through it.    The  route
from the coast then was up the
Fraser to the head of Harrison
lake, then by wagon road up the
Lillooet river to the head of Anderson lake,  thence over Anderson and Seaton lakes to Lillooet,
and thence by the road over Pavilion mountain to the Cariboo
gold fields.    Lillooet's chief importance, then,  was a stopping
place on the road to   Cariboo.
This route by way of Harrison,
Anderson and Seaton lakes was
not a convenient one in consequence of the many changes from
wagon to boat, and vice versa,
and in the early sixties a wagon
road was made from Yale at the
head of steamboat navigation on
the   Fraser,  up the Fraser and
Thompson rivers,  which crossed
the Thompson at Spence's Bridge.
The town of  Ashcroft did not
come into existence until after
the opening of the Canadian Pa
cific railway in the year 188P, and
was of no importance until by
the construction of a bridge
across the Thompson, it became
the starting point from the railway on the road to Cariboo.
After the construction of the
Yale-Cariboo road Lillooet was
very dull and there was scarcely
any residents except a few stoi e-
keepers and some Chinese miners
who continued to wash the ground
that the white men had abandoned. Previous to the construction
of the Canadian Pacific railway
no attention was paid to quartz
mining in the province, and even
as late as the year 1892 the total
production of the lode mines only
amounted to the sum of $100,000.
Twenty years ago the Kootenay
country was no farther advanced
than this district now is. Kootenay mines now produce over $10,-
000,000 yearly. With the advent
of the P. G. E. railway Bridge
river mines will receive a financial start commensurate with the
mineral wealth of this district.

A judgment was recently handed down by Chief Justice Hunter
in favor of a Lytton prospector
named Landon, for the sum of
$2,400.     The claim was against
Messrs.  John E.   Allan, Edwin
Fitzgerald and Harry P. Latham,
of New  Westminster,  for work
done for the defendants in staking  fourteen   placer claims on
Eldorado Creek, in  the Lillooet
district.     The contract between
the   two  parties   was   made   a
couple of years ago and was to
the effect that Landon should be
paid the sum of $200 for every
claim he  staked in which gold
could be found in paying quantities.    Mr. Landon stated that he
started out with the party for
the   site  of  the claims  in the
spring of 1912, but after getting
within seven miles of them they
were forced to turn back.   Later
on they made another attempt
when the weather was better and
got to the spot and staked the
fourteen claims.
The defendants in their evidence tried   to   make out that
there   had   been misrepresentations made by Landon as to the
quantities of gold to I e found in
the district and that he had said
that the work could  be done by
day work—that was, without the
use of machines—and that the
dirt  would yield  75   cents per
yard.     A counter-claim was also
urged for the sum of $500 for expenses which were said to have
been paid out for the plaintiff
when he was locating the claims.
The chief justice said that the
affirmation on the part of the defendants as to misrepresentation
was only an  afterthought.   At
first they had refused to pay be- j
cause they had no money.    It I
was simply absurd   to  suppose
that a man  would make a contract, as they were asserting, to
stake claims, and would only expect payment if the  gold was
found in such quantities as would
satisfy the other people in the
contract.  The contract was made
before the plaintiff had made any
representation about the matter,
good or bad.   He was entitled to
payment for his work according
to the contract,  and judgment
was given accordingly.

JOTTINGS AROUND CLINTON
From our Regular Correspondent.
Born.—At Clinton, B. C, on
Thursday, 18th inst., to the wife
of Edgar C. Lunn, a son.
Born.—At Clinton, B. C, on
16th inst, to the wife of Charles
Pollard, a son.
Mrs. James Bishop and Mrs.
Sam Boyd went down to the coast
last week for a short visit.
Mrs. Carson, of Pavilion, is
visiting her daughter, Mrs. Chas.
Pollard. Miss Carson is also
visiting her sister.
Mr. G. Wilson, clerk in the
government office at 150-Mile
House, sailed south last week to
spend the holidays among the
"lower levels."
Mrs. Wm. George, with little
Ralph, left on Sunday for the
141-Mile House, where she will
spend the Christmas holidays
with Mrs. John Murphy.
Mr. L. C. Hannor, of Canoe
Creek, drove about 75 head of
cattle through towards the south
on Saturday. Mr. Hannor is continuing on to the coast for a short
visit. Thompson, his son, accompanied him.   .
Mr. Steve Tingley, of Ashcroft,
spent Monday in town looking
over his various lots and buildings. Owners in Clinton are
now commencing to look to their
property more closely—the big
boom may strike us any day now.
Constable Spiller, of 150-Mile
House, passed through Clinton
with a load of prisoners, on his
way to warmer climes. Mr.
Spiller has been in ill-health of
late, and may spend a short vacation at the coast before returning.
Dr. Boyd, late of the 150-Mile
House, spent a couple of days in
town this week on his way north.
Dr. Boyd gave up his practice at
the 150-Mile House about a year
ago and returned to Ireland for
an extended vacation, and is now
on his way into the Cariboo to
look after his property interests.
Hugh Reid left Clinton a few
days ago to seek his fortune up
north—Quesnel, Hugh will be
much missed in  Clinton and dis-
ALONG THE LYTTON ROAD.
At the closing exercises in the
Foster's Bar school, on 18th inst.,
the pupils made a very fine showing, most creditable to Miss Mc-
Clugan, who has had charge of
the school during the past few
months. The large turnout of
parents and friends showed that
the work of the teacher was appreciated. Miss McClugkii is a
graduate of McGill, and has had
quite an extensive experience in
teaching and journalistic work in
the Cariboo country, and can recount some rare anecdotes of the
early days, gleaned from the
"old-timers."
Passers-by note that Jones
Bros., of the Half-way, have got
a dandy new hay press. F. C.
promises to break all records for
hay baling in these parts.
Ernest Glen, a young man employed on the Rosebank Farm,
had a mix-up with the Jersey bull
on that place. Except for a few
bruises and some torn clothes, no
serious harm befell him. We
notice his bullship is minus his
horns now.
The mild, soft weather of the
las: few days is trying out our
road. Some sections are getting
badly "dug up." However, we
noticed supt. Bell taking it all in
a few days ago, and no doubt it
will be attended to.
CHRISTMAS DAY.
trict, where he made many close j childish faith,
friends; but he has left his trade i agination and
mark on a great many buildings
and structures which will tend to
keep our "memory green."   Mr.
Reid was a first-class painter.
The Christmas spirit has come
to be the most potent force in
the history of the Christian
world, extending over all mankind its benediction of peace and
good-will, and keeping perennially alive the deep-seated feeling
of brotherly love, which is the
primal instinct of man as well as
of nations. Christmas is the one
season of the year when the
thoughts of one-half of the world
turn intuitively to the other often
forgotten half. Every land has
its own way of celebrating this
great festival, suitable to the
climate and conditions of the
respective countries in which
people live. But the fundamental
spirit of the observance is the
same. Christmas is, pre-eminently, children's day.    In their
More progress. Clinton can
now telephone to Ashcroft and
Ashcroft can 'phone to Clinton.
When we have been able to telephone a hundred or so miles up
north, it seemed an inconsistency
to be unable to talk thirty-four
miles to the south of us. There
were doubtless objections, which
have been overcome, much to the
benefit of Clinton.
From the standpoint of stock
raising, farming and mining, the
Lillooet district was never more
prosperous, says a Coast paper,
and this prosperity is shared in
a large degree with Vacouver,
since the residents of the "gold
and cattle" district come to the
metropolis ever so often for
relaxation and to put in circulation a portion of their easily
gotten gains.

their childish im-
childish outlook
upon life, and the freshness of
their delight in the day, lies its
greatest charm. If we cannot
be children, always, we can, at
least, renew our early joy in the
day, at the founts of youth and
memory. Old associations, however, commingled with sadness,
have a core of gladness that is
big with benediction. For memory unlocks many rare and rich
treasures when Christmas is the
key. Wherever we may be, our
thoughts will turn to the old
home where our child days were
spent and we will meet in the
happy, golden halls of memory
the loved ones of that past.
Christmas is a day in which opens
up vistas of happiness for all, and
whose opportunities seem to be
greater this year both to him that
gives and to him that receives
than ever before.—Ex.
