The following items were received this
[week by mail carrier from Bridge River.
There are at present about fifty men
fin the Bridge Kiver section and as we
[will have semi-monthly mail, we seem
[to be in civilization. There is about
[five inc.ies of snow on the ground and
the weather is fine.
All   the   mines   are looking fine, the
tend 'Or particularly is looking   better
than ever, with a fine large  ledge  and
^rery rich.   The Bend 'Or is a good property.

ledge wl ere Messrs. Fraser & Sutherland
have their pioperty is about twenty feet
wide and running across the claims.   No
gold is visible, but by pounding the rock
gold can be found. The discovery claims
were staked a few weeks ago and if they
materialize up to expectation'the owners
will have secured good property.   From
people who have been through this part
of the district, they state that the ledge
reeenily fouud is a continuation of the
rich ledueafrom McGillivray creek.   The
ledge eventually runs into the lake ami
is on a direct line with the ledge running
through tbe Brett group of claims. - The
parties who left town for the strike have
not returned as yet with full particulars.
J. McPhail   made  his first trip into
bridge river with the mail and reports
}veryone was glad to see him.      It is to

The Dredger.
Captain Dill who has   been   superintending affairs of  the  Dominion Gold
Dredging and Placer Mining  Company
here, left last Monday by stage for Ashcroft and will proceed to Toronto, where
he wlil spend the   winter.     J.   Hainer
will have charge of the dredger and machinery this winter.   The dredge is tied
up aud nothing was able to be done this
season.   The work of construction was
delayed longer then was expected.   The
lease 5 miles down from the bi idge owned
by the company is good and can be easily
worked, considerable gold having been
taken out of different places in this lease
since early days.   If the company gets
in working shape with the right machinery and men there is no doubt but what
it wiil be a paying proposition.
The Bend'Or mil.
The contract for the  taking  in  the

There was a warm time at the adjourned extraordinary general meeting
of the shareholders of the Goldan Cache
Mines Company held in the board of
trade rooms last Wednesday afternoon,
says The Province.
J. MacQuillan, formerly vice president of the company, addressed the
meeting a great length and moved a
strong resolution to the effect that a
thorongh investigation of the company's
affairs be made without delay. A hoi
discussion followed the address and resolution. Most oi the shareholders wers
in favor of the investigation being he!d,
but it was decided to adjourn the meeting till December 7th, before any definite
action should be taken.
The chairman, after calling the meeting
to order, requested the secretary to read
the report submmitted by the committee
which was as followers:
The committee appointed, at this
meeting, to confer with the directors lor
the purpose of devibing way and means
by which the affairs of the company can
be carried on, beg to repjrt:
First, we have consulted with Mr.
George T. Rives, superintendent of the
mine, who recommends sinking on the
ledge, as the most important work, and
simultaneously with doing so drive the
lower tunnel.
He believes from assays and indications in the face of the tunnel, that ore
ought to be encountered fifty (50) feet
by driving stiaight ahead. If ore is not
found at that point then it would be
necessary to cross-cut to the right, for
say 100 feet, and thus strike the ledge
upon its angle as indicated by the upper
In sinking upon the ledge, the strong
probability is that good bay-ore might
be encountered at any stage of the progress of the work enabling the starting
up of the mill before the funds proposed
to be raised would be exhausted.
The time occupied in preforming tbii
work would be about three (3) months,
and the costs he estimates at about $8,-
000. This work will prove whether it
would then be a payable property or
whether the indicataions at the end of
that time would justify further expenditure.
Second what we have carefully considered the question of raising fresh
capital and have determined that, in
the best interests of the shareholders, it
is better that the money should be borrowed and recommend the issue of debentures to the amount of $15,000, bearing
6 per cent, interest for the term of one
year, after date, secured by a  mortgage
to be entirely impartial, and to be guided
by the opinion of the majority of those
present in everything.
The report of the committee   was   on
motion received.
That Flagstaff.
J. MacQuillan, of Vancouver and   at
one time vice-president of   the  Golden
Cache company  has   been   addressing
meetings of the company lately  held at
that city in great length during his   utterances he mentions the affair  of the
directors, " buying flags and   flagstaffs
for the   town   of   Lillooet,"   and   also
mentioned "sundry flagons of Scotch."
Mr. Mai Quill.*n   may know something
about the "flagon oi Scotch" but   he  is
slightly mistaken in regards to the other
matters.   The citizens of Lillooet erected
the flagstaff ami paid the m >ney out  of
their own pocketf, and the firm of Mackinnon & DeBeck were the donaters of
the flag.   The citizens accepted tiie flag
in preference to a sum of   money to  be
given by the firm for celebration purposes
on the first of July.   If any more   wind
is needed  at  the  coast  the  air compressors  at  tLe Golden  Cache   mine
might be removed for the time being, by
the investigating committee.
A Billy Goats Dying Struggle.
Last week according to the reports
received from Bridge River, there
seem to have been quite an excitiug time
among three "Billy's." Billy McAllister
and Billy Stockand went out on a hunting expedition on Cadwallader, anddui-
\n_ the trip MoAl ister cornered a Billy
Goat and ftut a chunk of lead into him
which did not agree with him and at
once made for McAllister who was on
the edge of a rather steap bank. Both
Billy's clinched and over ihe bank they
went, the Billy Go o topandsometin • ■
Billy McAllister, at a distance of about
sixty feet thev stopped and McAllister
hugged the goat so close he could not
harm him. About this time Sockand
got around and finisned the goat with a
shot from his rifle. AteAllisster considering the rough experience he had would
only allow the hind foot to be taken of
the goat, which he is keeping for a souvenir.

Payable in advance.
Considerable chewiug and kicking has
been indulged in at the meeting of the
Golden Cache company at Vancouver
lately. No doubt the proceedings of the
company since its organization have
been conducted in a very peculiar manner and will in all probability undergo
an investigation at the hands of the attorney general. The Golden Cache mine
may hurt properties on Cayoosh Creek
but the most of the district can speak
for itself and there are showings in the
Bridge River section, which are good
properties and the ledges continuous,
that will equal anything in the country.
Mining is now being carried on in a
mining sense and practical men who
have hold of properties are developing
them, not mining in the brokerage
business. From reports bublished in another column it is likely that work will
be continued on the Golden Cache mine
in a short time and from the superintendents reports seems as if there is some
possibility of striking the ledge. The
Golden Cache was well boomed as a
high grade proposition, while it was on
the whole a Idw grade. Mining men, not
mining brokers, will not be discouraged
with the showings of the country and
Golden Cache will cut very little figure
with tiiem as when mining men see good
property they will take it up. There is
always more or less "wild cats" in every
mining district, but they always usually
emanate from the stock jobbers. We
do not feel at all discouraged at the result of the Golden Cache for if it is a failure it will be a grand lesson for investors
to examine properties and get mining
engineers to report on the merits before
investing large sums of money. Mining
is getting down to more business like
basis every day, and it is now impossible
to sell a prospect on wind, and samples
taken fiom some good property. Tie
prospector has to have something to
In another column is published a
notice of the solicitors, McPhillips &
"Williams of Vancouver, on behalf of the
applicants that they will apply at the
next session of the legislature for a
charter for a railwaw to run from Vancouver, Seymour Creek, Squamish
through Pemberton to Bridge River and
on to Atlin Lake. From all appearances
there is a likelihood of a railway being constructed in the near future
through this section. The enterprising
people of Vancouver see the advantages
it will be to their city to have this railway start from that point and are pushing matters ahead.
The Bridge River wagon road is a
necessity which should not be lost sight
of The matter ' should receive some
attention and an appropriation from the
government should be preseed  at  the
The mail service has at last been commenced to the Bridge River district and
two trips a month will be made. The
miners and people living in this important district have a feeling of satisfaction
that they will at least be able to receive
their mail occasionally. Mr. J. B. Mi-
Phail is the mail carrier and he takes the
envious job trusting to the good giaces
of the people to pay him for his service.
The matter in the near future may
probably receive some consideration
from the postal authorities and then
some allowance will be made too assist
in the mail delivery. Until such time
the people will have to dig down in
their pockets and pay for the services
themselves. The matter has been
agitated and brought to the notice of
the postal department for the past season
but nothing ever came of it. Mr Bos-t-
ock has promised to use his efforts to
get the system established and it is
hoped he will be successful.
Railway to the North.
The promoters of the proposed railway from Seymour creek norfh to Bridge
River, then on to Atlin, held another
private meeting in the office of McPhillips & Williams on Wednesday
evening. The affairs are now assuming
a tangible shape and the next step will
be to apply to the Dominion and provincial government for a charter. The
subscription list is being well received
and is being readily signed.—Province.
Notice is hereby given that an application
will be made to the legislative assembly of the
province of British Columbia at its next session
for an act to incorporate a company undur the
name of the " Vancouver, Northern a id Yuktn

tsruct, equip, operate and maintain a standard
or narrow guage railway from some point at
the City of Vancouver or some other convenient

Corbett Again Loses.
Another brutal exhibition between
two pugilists took place in New York on
Tuesday evening, in which a portion of
the cornunity took considerable interest.
It was a fistic encounter between Sharkey   and   ex-Ohampion   Oorbett,   wrho
now, for the second time within a period
of two years   ha*   neen   declared   van-
|ro»i quished.   First it was Bob Fitzsimmons
wlio knocked him out in Carson City
last year, and Sharkey was declared the
winner in last night's combat on a foul.
Much interest was centered in the
event, and when the news was bulletined
that. Sharkey had won on a foul, much
disappointment was experienced by
those who were assembled in the various
resorts throughout the city awaiting the
news. No matter what may be said as to
the advisability of having anything in
the nature of a fight, it is evident that
many people here take a lively interest
in prize-fighting. The story of the mill
shows that it was Sharkey's all the way
through, after he had floored Oorbett in
the second round. In all the other
rounds Sharkey pummelled Oorbett,
where he willed. In the ninth round,
MoVey, one of Corbett,s seconds jumped
into the ring. Thi3 was a foul and on-
that the referee promptly awarded the
fight to Sharkey, but declared all bets
New York, Nov. 23.—The statements
made late last night by those concerned
in the Sharkey-Corbett fiasco are as
followers: John Kelly, the referee—"I
• ' stopped the bout and gave the decision
to Sharkey because McVey, one of Corbet t's seconds, in violation of all rules,
jumped into the ring. I called all bets
off because I believe theacti< n of McVey
was paid for by somebody who bet on
Sharkey, and did not propose to decide
public money on a palpable fake. I
would not be a party to such   a   fraud.
No one can tell me McVey lost his
head. He has been behind fighters for
years, and there was some fraudulent
deal behind his movements. So far as I
can see the fighters were on about even
terms when I stopped the bout in the
ninth round."
An Eloquent Reminder.
Toronto, Nov. 21—Following is a special cable to the Evening Telegram, dated London, November, 21st:
The Daily Mail to-day, referring to
Canada's contribution to the West Indies relief fund, fays that it is an eloquent reminder of the duties due from
the mother and fostered by the spirit of
imperialism. Canada's canals, the 0.
P. R., its confederation of provinces, ite
prefere ential trade laws. Toronto,s
naval reserve scheme—all these have
been piompud by Canada's spirit of
imperialism and what is it, adds the
Wail, but businesslike imperialism that
induces Lord Strathcona, of Canada, to
confer with the government with reference to» a Canadian fast steamship
service. Historians will have much to
say about Canada's lead in imperialism.
