Private Malloy should not be a charge

him with a pension as long as lie lives.

In The Prospector of December 2Sih
there appeared an article intimating improper connection with m'neral claims
on tiie part of present government officials, in Lillooet. We now wish to truth-
j (ally declare that the article in question
was published without proper consideration nnd was calculate i lo do a gruve in-
j istice to the government officials referred to. With respect to Mr. Phair
we do not hesitate to say that a suggestion of intentional wrongdoing in hi-
official or personal dealings would be an
insult to tiie intelligence of all who
know him. We desire to unresrevedly
retract the cha _as Implied in ihe article
reftrred to and express our regret thai
the same should have been published.

Pemberton .Meadows.
Mr, Duncan J. Morrison arrived in
town this week from the Pemberton
Meadows on his wav to Bridge rive'.
The weather iu that Section lie states is
very mild and onlv a slight snow fail oc-
corred this year in coinpatison witli past
Juhn Currie lias secured the services
of .Mr. Morris for tlie purpose of breaking in his bund of large steers, 80 as to
enable -^hiiii to drive lliem nut to the
coast via tho Squamish trail this coming summer.
A petition lias been passed around to
the residents of the Meadows which has
been signed bv ail of them. The petition
begs that the Pemberton Meadows may
be taken into the Westminster district
instead of remaining in the L! looet district, ns it is the opinion of the petitioners that their own particular Eection
would be benefitted by the chango and
would altogether lie more prosperous.
They also consider that the treatment
they have received in the past, at the
bunds of the government has not been
of such n nature as to encourage settlers
to continue their improvements, especially when tlie facilities forgetting Iheii
produce and stock ou', and their provisions into this splendid far .ning country are consi lere-1.
Tbe bridg'3 acioss tbe Ldlooet river
and Toole creek, entirely disappeared
last big;i water, therefore this really cuts
off transportation between the to«n of
Lillooet ami tlie Pemberton Meadows.
The sctil.irs are unanimously in favor of
the continuation of the surveyed road lo
the coast via Siunmiuh, and nil seem to
hold the same opinion on this matter
and therefore of a necessity tbev are pe-
tioning the gov.ru ment lo alow them
to be annexed into lhe Westminster district.

! ing considered   a   moderate estimate of
tho cost of the same from the opening of
lhe mines to the present time.   The size
of tbe timbers varies  from   huge  pieces
sixteen inches r'quare and twenty-four
i feet long to the smaller   pieces   used in
j cribbing.     The   species  employed   are
iliieflv yellow pine, fir  and  cedar, fully
two-thirds ef the whole amount being
j the first named—a   favorite   timber   in
j fact, witli  mine carpenters, on account
J of its exactitude in  joining.     Cedar, of
conr«e, is inferior to no   Known timber,
i not even excepting redwrod, lor its last-
' ing   qualities   underground,   but,   it   is

Ilrlclee River t.icenss.
Editor Prospector, sir: Trusting you
will publish this letter and thai I am not intruding loo much on your valuable space.
I would like to express my appreciation of
the magnificent effort the Lillooet license commissioners have made lo abolish the curse of
liquur to mankind. What a noble precedent
for civilization to follow.
The laws of I!riti*h Columbia are so Inadequate that license commissioners have to make
their own. The liquor aa distinctly states
that, "on lhe application for renewal of license, the commissioners shall gmit same, unless they can show cause for uot so doing."
"Cause" distinctly means charges brought
against the applicant, sworn to and proved.
Now, why should the licenses be granted in
the town of Lillooet and not granted r.t a way
side hotel, w-here the chief license inspector
states in his report that a licensed house is a
What justice and fair play is it [?] which is
so dear to us Britishers, that allows one hotel
to have a license and stop the renewal of
another whose owner has been to a large expense and is now on the way to get his money
invested hack again.
I will admit we miners do sometime take a
drink or two, would il be better for us to go
and buy flour and blankets and give them to
siwasnes. There is no better hearted or more
liberal class of men under the sun than the
miners. Surely they can (lo what they please
wilh their hard earned wages.
There is nol a fair minded man in the district of West Lillooet who is against the renewal of lhe license at Hotel Royal, Sucker
creek, and yet a few nnd very few indeed, owing to their ignorant fanaticism regarding tiie
sale of liquor arc endi avoring lo make a camp
worse than it is by abolishing licensed houses.
As sure as the camp has one or mere men in
it they will have liquor legally or illegally.
Trusting that right and justice will hold its
own and that the license commissioners of
West Lillooet will abide by the laws of tlie
province in the future and not attempt to make
their own. Wil.I. IIaylmork.

With tbe dawn of civilization, jealousy
was burn. There will always, be mm
who will always miss the train of prosperity and remain sour and disgruntled
for lhe rest oi their lives. This claBS is
appropriately called "knockers." In
mining camps the " knocker " is found
in great variety of form. There is the
" knocker " who bas been told that tbe
title will not bear investigation; that
the oie body is too low grade to work;
that the ore bouies are pinching; that
Hill Smith lias a better mine for sale at
less money; and that generally all mine
operators are suspicious characters unless he (the "knocker"; is personally
identified with tbe deal. In lhe search
for metals two men may start equal.
Both locate nn the same lode and work
nith the greatest harmony. At night
they sit nt their ramp (ires, their hopes,
ambitions and sorrows are shared. Put
let one of ttieFe men secure capital lo develop his individua' claim and al once a
coolness springs up between lliem. The
old partner cannot understand why it
was not his mine that was developed.
The friends drift Aider apart. One grows
richer; the other becomes more bitter.
Their mines may be equally valuable,
but the owners are not equal in energy,
and push. Perhaps tlie best definition
of a "knocker " is one who has failed.

Editor Prosi'KCTOr. Sir: We notice in
last weeks issue a letter by " David Dalziel " nn
ih^ suhjeri of temperance, the w.;her taking
the ground that the recent action of (he Itcanne
commissioners in refusing licenses on Bridge
Kiver was a body blow to lhe whisky traffic.
Indeed if one were lo judge from the language
of lhe letter, which appears richer self-commendatory as David Dalziel was one of the
commissioners, the act of the license coinmis- ■ M
sioncrs marks a distinct era in the cause of ^
We quite agree with David when lie says
lhat the evil of intemperance is anoverwhelm-
ing one. He mentions war and whisky as the
two predominant evils of ihe human race and
we venture to say that whisky lias caused'
more broken hearts, more ruined homes and
more ruined business establishments than war.
Hut we submit that Mr. Palziel's plan of removing the evil is cnlirelv tr.)sa'.i-,f.-.ctory and
useless. What earthly use is there in prohibiting the sale of liquor on Cadwallader, and
thereby depriving lhe residents of stopping
places, when it can lie purchased in Lillooet
hy the pack load and passed from hand to
hand. On the same principle Mr. Dalziel
would seeli to prohibit tlie sale of cigarettes in
a city by closing up one suburban tobacco
shop and leaving the easily approached ones
open. f
There is a license law in force in Canada,
one that has worked wonders for the cause of
temperance, and by refusing To stand by that
law Mr. Dalziel at once conveys the ioea that
[he laws of our country arc no good and he
| starts at once to frame a new code. Mr. Dalziel is like the bull who charged the railway
train. We admire his courage—gall would he
a more appropriate word—but we think very
little of his common sense.
Mr. Dalziel states that whisky is a never
failing follower in the steps of man. No
stronger condemnation of the license prohibiting plan could he adduced than that statement.
According to his own statements the whisky
will be sure lo get into Cadwallader license or
no license. With a license t' ere will be a
check on its use, without one there will be
none. If whisRey is.«uch-a dcterlniue.l pursuer of civilization, the only way to treat it is
to teach people to use it in moderation, the
plan which today is doing so much for temperance. To refuse a license on Cadwallauer
and grant three in Lillooet is not only incon-
sisledt but useless. lhe "evil of evils" is
no worse on Bridge Kiver than in Lillooet
and under the present arrangement the liquor
will travel to Bridge Kiver as sure as water
finds its level, while the residents of that^Jo-
cality will be utterly deprived of suitable _
stopping places.
We do not wish to make any caustic remarks
'out we have heard far better arguments' than
Mr. Dalziel brings forward, stigmatised as

Broadly  speaking,  girls are divided
Into two greiit classes—tbe ones who
lind and the ones who lose.
Meta Is a girl who finds. OwnerlesB
earrings nnd brooches and shirt studs
are scattered along her pathway, entreating her to pick them up, whichever way she strolls, nnd little things
like horseshoes mid four leaved clovers
seem to leap up In the most unlikely
lliaces at the first sound of her step.
"Guess what I found today?" is her
regular form of greeting; so no one was
surprised when the question came that
day nt Georgia's ten.
"Oh, I don't know," snid Lilian indifferently. "Probably a cotton handkerchief or somebody's other glove."
Lilian is one of the glrla who couldn't
lind anything if they would. Possibly
that's the reason she assumes the manner of one who wouldn't If she could.
Meta gave a withering glance at the
scoffer. Then she removed her Ladysmith hat and extracted from Its crown
a roll of money, which she spread upon
her lap. A $50, n $20 and a $10 bill
stared out.
"Counterfeit!" gasped Lilian.
"No, sir. Uncle Mac says they're as
good as any ever made."
"You didn't hnd them, Meta; you're
Joking," protested Georgia.
"No joke nbout it. I wns walking
down Wabash avenue, nnd stacks of
people were passing in loth directions,
too, but suddenly there wns nn open
space nbout a yard square right in
front of me. and straight In the middle
of it lay this money, all rolled up. It
Just seemed as though the crowd parted and everybody looked the other
way on purpose to let me have it."
"Well, 1 never!" sung the chorus.
"What are you going to use it for,
Meta?" somebody asked, but Lilian,
whose interest had revived wonderfully, didn't give her timo to answer.
"Use it for?" she cried. "Do you
s'pose Meta would spend that money?
Think of the poor woman who lost it!"
"Woman. Indeed!" retorted Meta.
"Uncle Mac doesn't think that. lie
snys there's a little pocket just inside
the waist 'band of his trousers where
he keeps a wad of bills—whenever he
has oue—aud thnt it's the easiest thing
in the world to slip the money lu back
of the pocket Instead of Into It. Aud
1 nsked him If thnt ever happened to
htm. You ought to have seen how
guilty he looked when he snid, 'Ouce;
but don't tell _llen!' That's my aunt,
you know. Well, we think—Uncle Mac
aud 1—that some rich club fellow lost
it and that he'd put It to some extrava
gaut use even If he had It agalu."
"Hut 1 can't help thinking about
some poor old washerwoman who
hadn't another cent In the world,"
murmured the blue eyed Innocent.
"Washerwomen without another cent
are so likely to go strewing $80 rolls
around!" said Metn.
"More likely 'twas a schoolteacher
with her mouth's salary. And teaching
is such nervous work!" suggested Lil-
"Or a fagged out woman clerk," added Georgia.
"Well. I wouldn't take It from a
woman any sooner than you "would,"
declared Meta. "Of course 1 wouldn't
mind so much If it belonged to a man.
But I luteud to advertise It anyway."
"Certainly!" exclaimed Lilian, as If
she'd been thinking of that all the
lime. "Thatjs the proper thing to do."
Aud blue eyed innocent udded, "I
should Just use that money for advertising every day iu every paper until
there wasn't a cent left."
Mela pursed her lips. "Well, I'm
taking Uucle Mac's advice about this,"
she said. "He says to study the papers
a day or two and see If the loser advertises. Then, after that, he siijb to
advertise: 'Pound—Sum of inouey, nt
such a place, nt such a time.' Not a
word to give n false elalmaut nny help
iu Identifying tbe bills, you see. Hut
he doesn't think I'll ever Hnd tbe owner, und, sny, girls. If he shouldn't turn
up, what do you sny to a lake trip together or some klud of a regular spree
with this money?"
"1 couldn't utijoy It," said the righteous Lilian.
"Not unless you gave half to a hospital." amended another.
"Oh, I don't know," dissented Georgia. "I think my conscience would
take In a trip to Mackinac."
"Good for you!" replied Meta, as she
rolled up her wealth aud put on her
hat "We'll, speud It all for gum If
we wnnt to, Georgia, nnd we won't
treat them, either—sec If we do!"
fhey didn't see her again for three
weeks, nnd then she came flying In to
luncheon nt Lilian's with a look in her
eyes as If she'd just fallen heir to a
million In gold.
"I've hnd tbe loveliest experience In
the world!" she announced. "You remember that money I found? Well, 1
waited a few days, ns Uncle Mac said,
nnd no one advertised the loss; so I put
one In myself. Told them to address
X, the newspaper office, you know-
th'e wny they do. Next morning I
went down to get the returns. There
were nine answers, and of nil the pn-
' thetlc things! Not one of the people
W »i_t« _a» lo-t their money on tbe
I     s 	
day or nt the place I found mine, but
they were just as hopeful, for all that,
ami they actually made me feel responsible for their losses.
"First there was a man who had
dropped a small, flat, black book, with
a pawn ticket, a laundry bill nnd two
$2 bills In it. And distressed over it!
You'd think he'd lost a gold mine. And
he was so sure 'twas his money I'd
found-poor fellow! Then a woman
poured out a "whole sbeetful of her
heart, nnd drew a picture of the purse
she'd lost, and told me how the money
in it belonged to her sister, who was in
the hospital and who needed It dreadfully, and how I'd be blessed forever
if I only restored it. Next there was
an old man who lind dropped two $20

"1 got awfully worked up over these

wait a week and then, if no one claimed that $80, to send for all those forlorn

lost out of what 1 had found. I didn't
dare tell Uncle Mac the scheme until
the week bad passed aud I had really
written notifying them all to be at his

tbe rapidity of the pulsations. Their
mode is to compare the number of pulsations of tbe artery with the intervals
of the respiration of the patient. The
number of pulsations of n man in moderate health they consider In relation
to the time of a natural inspiration and
expiration. Pour beats of the pulse
during this period they consider ns Indicating perfect health. If It exceeds
live pulsations, It is considered ns too
quick; If under that number, ns too
slow respecting good health. It is required to reckon 00 pulsations in order
to form a correct Indication. Tbeir
chief divisions of tbo pulse are four.

How to Bundle a nun.
In lucking up your gun from lying
Cut, st.mi.ling against anything, from a
companion or u bout, do not lake hold
of the uiu-zlu and drag it toward you.
Take hold of it by the forestock nml
barrel if you nre only using one build;
If two. In the regular way you grasp ii
when you go to shoot. In currying
your gun do not keep the muzzle directly behind you. Throw the butt to
the right or left, whichever shoulder
you ure carrying It on. This will bring
tbe muzzle toward the opposite shoulder, lluis rendering it easy to curry, it-
it will be resting on your nock -lid
shoulder Instead of on the small i;ttrt
of your shoulder and with tlie muzzle
upward will also lighten it u little.
I think there ure more men shot wilh
tbeir own guns by taking them from n
bout than In any other wny. When
you run your bout or cunoo to the bunk,
your gun Is likely to be In the bow,
which I lliink Is the best place for it.
Take hold of it by the forestock nnd
stop out. Put it In n safe place where
you nre sure It will not full down. Then
draw up your bout or do anything else
you have to do. but do not let your gun
Stay in tbo bout until you have shouldered your puck and then catch hold of

Steel  Fork* In the  White HoOMe.
Writing of "One Hundred Years In
the White House" and recalling some
of the notable entertainments given by
our chief executives, Heue Bucbe In
The Ladies' Home Journal says that
"President Madison revived much of
the formal ceremony which Thomas
Jefferson bad discarded, und nnder his
administration great attention wns
given to the state banquets, no expense
being spared in making them as line as
possible. President Jackson disliked
ceremony even more than did President Jefferson, nnd, preferring a steel
fork himself, he always provided each
guest with one silver fork and one of
steel. After dinner ho smoked a long
stemmed corncob pipe. He wished to
throw the doors of the White House
wide.open to the public, but this idea
he was forced to relinquish nfter the
experience of one occasion on which he
extended an ill judged hospitality to all
comers. The carpet in tbe east room
wns ruined by punch which tlie mob
spilled in Its eagerness to gctnt the
buckets containing the beverage, tlie
gowns of many ladies were spoiled,
and the furniture was broken. At Ills

introduced It curious novelty In the

A little girl had evidently not seen
tbe point In tills, for when she got
home she told her mother—tbe mother
related this to me afterward—that she
wanted to go to church that evening.
My Installation was to take place In

being signed by Treasurer Spinner

that disease of this organ caused diabetes. He therefore secured some of

Willi.mi-' Pink I'illn Cured HUnWheu
ii..p.  Hud Almost Departed.
From  the Post, Thorold,   Ont.
Mr. Junius D-buuld and wife are
two of the beat known residents of
the town of Thorold, where they
have passed many years. In their
family they have a little son who,
although but ten years of age, has
experienced much afllietion, and his
parents expended many a dollar in
the search for his renewed health—
all in vain, however, until l>r. Williams' Pink Pills were brought into
use. A Post reporter hearing of tlie
cure, called at Mr. Pabauld's cosy
homo and received Ml particulars
from Mrs. Dubald. "'. am pleased,"
said Mrs. Dabauld, "to have the public made aware of the facts of my
boy's case If it is likely to help some
other sufferer. Charley is now ten
years of age. In infancy he was a
delicate child, but from four to seven
he scarcely passed a well day. At
four years of age he began to complain of frequent headaches, which
later became almost continuous, and
soon symptoms of general debility
developed. His appetite was poor
and he grew pale and emaciated, and
the least exertion caused a severe
palpitation and fluttering of the
heart, and dizziness. At times there
was considerable derangement of his
stomach; a blifeness of tlio lips and a
shortness of breath. He would often lie awake at night and rise In the
morning haggard and unrefreshed.
During his illness he was treated by
two doctors. Both differed in the
diagnosis of the case. One said It
was catarrh of the stomach, and
while his treatment was persisted in
there was no improvement. The second also attended him for some time
with no better results. Some time
after my attention was attracted by
my aunt to Dr. Williams' Pink Pills,
and about September, 1807, I procured the pills and he began taking
them. We had long before come to
the conclusion he would be an invalid for life, but believing it a duty
I owed to my child to procure all
means of relief, I was determined to
give Dr. Williams' rink Pills a fair
trial. The good effects of the lirst
box was apparent, and live boxes
were used, which were taken in
about six months' time, when he was
strong and well, and could attend
school, and play and frolic as other
healthy boys do. As every symptom
of his old trouble has vanished, I
consider his cure complete. The pills
have certainly dono him a world of
good, as nearly three years have
since passed away and he has not
seen a sick day In that length of
time. I shall ever feel that we owe
our boy's health to Dr. Williams'
Fink Pills, and believe that their
prompt use would relieve much suffering."
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills are just
as valuable in the case of children as
with adults, and puny little one-
would soon thrive and grow fat under this treatment, which has no
equal for building up the blood and
giving renewed strength to brain,
body and nerves. Sold by all dealers or sent postpaid at 50c. a box
