TRAIL TO BE BUILT
TO TAYLOR BASIN
On September 15th work
will be commenced on the
new trail to Taylor Basin,
to leave the wagon road at
5-mile creek and follow up
the brakes of Tyaughton
creek, across to the basin.
Herb Taylor says thai
there is nearly a water grade
all the way and the work of
clearing the trail easily accomplished.
Anentthe mining situation
Mr. Taylor says: ''Everyone is busily at work on development and prophesy the
shipment of good paying ore
out of Taylor Basin before
this time nex.t year. All
the properties are looking
well and as soon as the fall's
work is done it is my intention to go back and spend
the winter in developing the
Taylor and Shuster claims.

HELLO LINE TO
BRIDGE RIVER
You can "holler hello" to
Bridge River now. The line
reached the river early this
week and the boys are now
encamped at Cedar Creek
about five miles above the
bridge, and the work is going steadily ahead. It is
only a matter of a few days
until a phone can be established at Fairhaven Lodge
where, it is now understood, that a station will be
established.
Foremen Burkholder, who
is familiar with the Bridge
River country, states that
there should be no difficulties encountered from the
present end of the line to
its destination, to cause delay and that It is only a matter of a few weeks until the
mines will be in close touch
with the oulside world. Already the line is open for
business from the camp to
Lillooet and several have
availed themselves of the
new service. Joe Russel, deputy game warden, has the
honor of sending the first
commercial message over
the new line from Bridge
River.
THE BOY SCOUTS ORGANIZE
The Boy Scout movement
in Lillooet is now an assur-
red fact and Mr. Celle,
Scoutmaster, says that the
young folks are taking a
hold of the work with great
enthusiasm. Much credit
s due Mr. Celle for the interest he has shown in the
work and in the rapid progress made by the organization under his direction.
NO "WILD CATS"
ALLOWED HERE
There seems to be a disposition on the part of seme
of the supposed to be mining
companies to try to put over
some of their "wild cat"
methods in this camp and
the Prospector, speaking for
the entire camp, wishes to
go on record as saying that
this camp will not stand for
any crooked work or shady
business methods and any
outfit trying any "get-rich-
quick" methods will be
brought up with a "sharp
turn."

VANCOUVER VISITOR LIKES TOWN
Miss Nellie MaDonald, of
Vancouver, is visiting her
cousin, Mrs. James Bell
and family here. When asked her impressions of Lillooet Miss NcDonald said:
"You have a delightful
country here and my visit
has been a very enjoyable
one. The trip up Seaton
Lake  Tuesday was simply
glorious and I will take home
many pleasant recollections
of Lillooet—and some pictures, too—if Mrs. Bell
will only take her camera
along, instead of leaving it
on the dining room table, as
she did on Tuessday."
Mr. J. W. Hunt returned
from Vancouver Wednesday.
Leaving this morning to
the McGillivray Creek to inspect his holdings.
Geo. Hurley left today on
a short business trip to Vancouver.

making Lillooet his headquarters for awhile.
STRICTLY PERSONAL
Charles Noel is again out
after a two week's illness.
Messrs. LaVelle, Hurley
and Fred Arthur brought in
18 fine grouse Sunday.
Don't overlook the fact
that you can get a neat,nifty
shoe shine atTonyViera'sfor
a thin ten-cent piece.
W. W. Jones, proprietor
of 1 he Fairhaven Lodge, is
contemplating the erection
of several buildings on his
ranch this fall.
Mrs. Bowman and little
son of Lytton, spent the firct
of the week visiting with
Mrs. W. Collins, of the Lillooet Rooming House.
Cal Humphries left Tuesday for California, where he
was called on the death of
his aunt. Cal anticipates
remaining at home for the
winter, but will return to
Lillooet early next spring.
Mr. Mark Eagleson returned Monday from a pro tracts-
trip through Washington,
the famous apple belt, and
found while the fruit in that
state had the size and appearance, it hasn't the flavor of
the Lillooet product. The
trip was a very interesting
one, said Mr. Eagleson and
the stay at Soap Lake did
me a world of good.
Harry Kearey left last
Saturday for the North
Fork of Bridge River, where
he will spend the next month
working his assessments on
the Sure Winner claims.
George McGann has a
force of men engaged in
getting out logs on the
North Fork of Bridge River.

portable saw mill and the
cut will be turned into lumber on the ground. The   Prospector

Jim Jones says he is glad
to be down "on the level"
after the strenuous days
spent on Mission Mountain.
Jack Logan is sure some
authority on hunting deer—
tracks.

"By Heck" Ecklund slipped one over on the bunch.
He didn't have to go to the
Norwegian dictionery to look
up words.
Chas. Kearey 's Logan's
right hand man, as a nim-
rod—also strong on tracks.
' 'Shorty" Sherman contemplates opening up a
laundry. His new policy
of boiling rocks in the washing water is rapidly gaining
in favor.
"0. K.' Rogers is showing
great form as a bold, bad
hunter—camp fire style.
"Comical" Carmicheal is
rather down-hearted and has
ceased his regular pilgrimages to town. Poor boy! She
may write, though.
Bobby South is the"night-
engale" of the bunch and
nightly his melodious voice
raises "the animals of the
wild" from their peaceful
slumbers.
R. Davidson, pal of Cyclone Bill, is a newcomer on
the job.

A MINER'S EXPERIENCE IN NEW YORK
(Continued From Last Week.)
Well, he looked at me e
an owl in the sunlight, and
I tried him again. He might
have been spreading his
eyes at me yet if it hadn't
been for a real sweet article
of a lady in the seat in front.
I could feel everybody was
storing right at me, but she
was game enough not to
care, and square enough to
help a poor devil that needed it. She turned her head
and said in a nice comfortable sort of a way, "If you
wish you can put your subscription on a slip of paper
instead of making it now."
Thank you, mam, I said,
that's what I'll do. I knew
now that what she meant
was a card that they put
around in the seats, but
there didn't happen to be
any where I'd located and to
my mind the paper slip racket suggested just one thing
and I grabbed at that like a
thirsty man at the end of a
straw. The goggle-eyed
plate shover was on to look
for better paying dirt when
I held him up for a second,
got out a pencil and the
back of an enve'ope and
scratched off an I. O. U.
for "Twenty-five" which
I figured would be about
right. As I dropped it onto
the plate I told him I'd be
around to settle up as soon
as the game was called He
looked like he was struggling
with a stunt in mental arithmetic. Having got that off
my mind, I was feeling
pretty good, thank you! I'd
have taken a drink with almost any kind of a man on
it if it had come handy. In
the Doxology I did some
pretty considerable singing
to let my feelings loose and
when that was over I sat
down for the crowd to sift
out so that I could go up
and make good. It was a
wait for fair. A whole lot
of people went up to speak
to the parson and as I noticed the ushers had all cashed
in to him, I figured that he
was the man I  had  to  do
business with, so as soon as
I saw an opening I went up
and spoke to him.   It seemed to me that he blinked at
me when I v/ent  up   and
spoke to him, but maybe the
spark on my shirt had caught
him between the eyes—but
he shaped up all right and
gave me the glad hand just
as if he was happy to see me.
I felt like telling  him  that
his talk was   the  kind of
talk I liked, but business before social gaities, so I right
up and told him I'd come to
settle.    It  didn't seem   to
just strike him and he blinked again. Its simgle enough,
I  said,  I didn'r   have the
right chips, so I shoved in an
I.  O.   U.   Its in the plate
there.   It was sticking  up
over the edge in plain sight,
so he went over and pulled
it out and lead it.   Then he
smiled and said he thought
he'd seen   'em before when
he   was   a boy at college.
From what he said I knew
he was ri^ht and I felt bet
ter.   You see, I told him, I
had the stuff but the usher
rang in a no-change-taken
sign on me and I had to pass
that up. I had nothing in
my clothes but two-bits and
a double header. "If I understand you rightly," said
the parson, "you want change
for a bill so that you can put
in twenty-five cents. "You
don't understand right, was
my reply. I told you I had
two bits, but I wanted to
put in a white m an's stake
—so that I. O. U. stands
for $25. I suppose that's
about right, eh? "It seems
you don't quite understand
me," he says, "this church
could make good use of
twenty-five dollars, but its

shallow glacial valley slowly
being filled up by the waste
poured into it by sediment
laden creeks. The southern
end or head of the lake is
unknown, but it can be seen
as tending into the unexplored region of glacier-covered
mountains.
From where the Whitewater enters to where it becomes a river is a distance
of about 16 miles and flows
north into the Chilicoten.
From the narrows of Whitewater lake another day was
occupied in traveling to the
head of the Queen's lakes.
The route followed along the
W*stwater River and along
the open bunch grass side
hills of Queen's lakes. These
lakes occupy an ancient broad
glacial valley about 100 feet
higher than Whitewater
lake and are fed by streams
from the high snow- peaked
mountains to the   west,   of
which Mt. McFhail is a con-
spicious land mark. From
there it was another days
journey over Chilco pass into Rainy valley, which drains
into the Whitewater river.
From a low divide about
two miles beyond camp one
could look clown into Nema-
iah valley with its bunch
grass side hills and broad
open meadows dotted with
lakes, some of them alkali?.
At the end of the valley
stretched the blue waters of
Lake Chilko.
From Eldorado creek to
Chilko lake the lowest elevation was 3900 feet above
sea level. No land suitable
for agriculture was seen during the trip. Excellent summer grazing land occurs
around Spruce and Queen's
lakes and the Nemaih valley—altitude from 4000 to
5100 feet—but the altitude
prevents the growing of
grains and potatoes, but a
few vegetables could be
grown in the Nemaiah valley.
At Nemaiah valley canoes
were procured from the Indians and Chilko lake was
explored.   This   is  a deep
body  of  clear   blue   water
about 55 miles long and 4
miles at the widest point.
A deep glacial valley about
the   center  an arm   about
ten miles in length stretches
toward the west at the head
of which is a pass to  Bute
Inlet by the Southgate river.
The head of the lake and of
the west arm is surrounded
high mountains covered with
glaciers and the lower part
of the lake extends into the
interior plateau.

A FEW TIMELY HINTS
TO OUR CAMPERS
At this season of the year
forest fires spread with startling rapidity and the amount
of damage which can be
caused from a few sparks
from the noon-day camp fire,
is inconceiveable, and the
greatest care should be exercised by campers and all
others in the woods. The
rules issued by our local fire
wardens are not out of place
at this season of the year:
Never kindle your fire in
the vicinity of a rotten log,
as the sparks will live in the
punk for days and will travel many yards before breaking into flame.
Never build your fire in
the vicinity of heavy undergrowth. The dried bracken
and ferns will always catch
the fire and spread in the
least wind.
Always see that your fire
is extinguished at least 15
minutes before you leave it.
Do not be content with its
apparently being out, but
scrape away the ashes and
see that there are no live
coals.
Cigarette ends should be
extinguished when in the
woods, a single spark may
result in a conflagaration.
Do not tear down or mutilate the signs put up by the
fire wardens, as there is a
heavy penalty attached.
