T PROSPECTOR

$2.00 Per Year
RANCH PROPERTY
CHANGES HANDS
PHAIR RANCH WAS
SOLD THIS WEEK
The deal for the Phair ranch
adjoining town on the northeast Went through this week,
the purchasers being the
Howe Sound Northern Development Company and the
price being in the neighborhood of $300 to $400 an
acre. This property lies in a
northeasterly direction from
the Methodist church and
extends to the river, comprising about SQCLacres.
It is said that it is the intention of the purchasers to
cut the property into acre
blocks for small fruit
ranches, market gardens,
etc.
From its location adjacent
to town, this is one of the
most desirable locations in
the country and has good
water rights, which will add
materially to its value.
S. A. Mcfarlane, local
government telegraph operator, received a new 12x24
flag this week, the gift to
the town of J. M. McKin-
non of Vancouver. It is
made of heavy bunting, well
stitched and will be of service for many years to come.
Mr. McKinnon, who is an
old-time resident of Lillooet
was the donor of the old flag
which has flown from the
flag pole on all state occasions for the past twelve or
thirteen years, and on his
recent visit to town decided
that it was about time that
a new national emblem was
needed, so on his return to
the coast lost no time in attending to the matter. The
flag will be put up for the
first time on the 24th of May.
RETURNS HOME
FOR SUMMER
Mr. A. F. Noel, who has
beenwinteringin Vancouver,
returned to Lillooet last
Sunday, to remain for the
summer. He reports that
there is an increast in the
interest taken and in the
demand for Lillooet real estate, and that every few
days there are deals of importance put through.
Mr. Noel recently purchased
the Joe Copeland ranch for
$10,000 cash and almost immediately afterwards turned
it over to the Messrs. Painter
& McRae of Vancouver at a
nice profit. The new owners
will sub-divide the place into
five and ten acre tracts and
they will be put on the market as fruit lands. Messrs.
Painter and McRae are expected to arrive at Lillooat
in a few days to look over
their newly purchased holdings.
Another  of   Mr.   Noel's
holdings is the Larochelle
ranch, also located down the
river. On this place he holds
an option and expects parties
in the near future to come
to Lillooet to look over the
place with a view to buying.
The Fountain ranch, 8-
miles Ashcroft road, in
which Mr. Noel and Mr. McKinnon, of Vancouver, are
interested, was visited by
Mr. Noel on Wednesday.
Mr. Noel will remain in
town for a few days, closing
up his pending deals and
then, accompanied by Mrs.
Noel, will leave for Bridge
River on a combined business and pleasure trip.
INDIAN TRACKERS
AFTER OUTLAWS
DESPERADOES
CLOSELY FOLLOWED
Reports come from Clinton
that Chief Fernie and his trained
trackers are close upon the trail
of the Indian murderers of Constable Kindness
A saddle and bridle were stolen
from a ranch fifteen miles from
the ecene of the fight. The posse
has been able to trace the footsteps of the murderers and are
following the trail of the Indians
left when they left the barn.
Forty men are distributed in
different localities to waylay
Spintlam and Paul should they
make their appearance within a
radius of fifty miles from Clinton
The latest report received in
Lillooet states that the trackeis
are close behind the desperadoes
in the vicinity of High Bar lake
in the Beaver Dam country.
It is stated that the two men
now have but one horse between
them.
The body of Constable Kindness was laid to rest in Vancouver on Wednesday, interment
being in Mountain View cemetery
Rev. Dr. Fraser officiated in the
final solemn cermony for the dead
officer. The funeral cortege that
assembled to accompany the body
to the grave consisted of an advance guard of fifteen mountxd
policemen, immediately followed
by the band of the Seventy-second Seaforth Highlanders. 100
policemen on foot and fifty firemen in uniform  completed this
end of the arrangements.
 o—;	
G. J. Jackson, M. Margi-
son and L. Margison, surveyors, have been employed
all week finishing up the
subdivision of the Hcey
ranch adjoining town. This
work was started a few
weeks ago, but was delayed.
It is now announced that it
will be pushed to &n ca ly
completion and the new lots
put on the market in the immediate future.
STEAMBOAT REPAIRED
The S. S. Brittania, which
has been tied up for the
past week or more undergoing repairs and improvements, is again making ker
regular runs up Seton lake,
making her first trip this
morning. Messrs. Cox and
Phair, the owners, have had
a new boiler put in the engine room and have had her
generally overhauled and
painted, putting her in first
class condition for her run
to the Mission and the Portage. "Captain" PhaJ; states
that freight traffic at p:es-
ent is heavy and that the
passenger lists is on the increase, sj he exptcts that in
the near future it will be
necessary to make daily
trips.
George Larochelle, representing the Moore Gasoline
Light Company of Vancouver, is in town transacting
business. He is well known
in this district having resided
in this place for some time.
Dm Hirley, accompanied
by D. K. May, of Spokane
left this week for the Lome
mine on Cadwallader creek.
There will be an excursion
up Seton Lake on the new
launch "Premier'' on Sunday.
Jack Jones, road superintendent, came down this
week to superintend taking
the grader up to the Bridge

FRIDAY, MAY  10, 1912
Since the strike has been
on   along the line of construction of the C.  N.  R..
quite a number of the I. W.
W. strikers have drifted into
-'Lillooet and  have  already
succeeded in creating something akin to a disturbance.
So far as Lillooet is concerned  it  is far enough away
from the scene of the trouble
that it should not be materially affected by the strike,
and does not wrant the radicals   and agitators of any
labor   organization to hold
it back now that the district is well on its way to
the long-looked-for time of
prosperity.
The mines in this section
pay as good wages and afford as good accommodation
for their employees as any
place in this section and until the recent agitatition by
few of the discontented
members of the striking organization, there has never
been labor trouble anywhere
in the camp.
We   hold out   for   gocd
wages and short hours for
the laborer, but when employees are satisfied that
they are f areing as well as
men in other sections and
when the employers are willing to grant anything within
reason, we fail to see caus«
for outside trouble-makers
to come in and undertake to
create unrest among the
miners.
I. W. W. agitators are not
welcome in Lillooet by either
emp'oyees or employers.
Vancouver now has several skyscrapers—but it's still
far from Heaven.

With respect to the presentment of the grand jury
at the recent assizes at Clin-
to 1 it was noticed that the
grand jury was taken entirely from Ashcroft and its
vicinity and possibly had its
numbers been taken from
ali over the district, as formerly, the opinion might
and probably would have
been different. As to the
condition of the government
buildings, thes« buil lings
have been in existence a
number of years and they,
while good when new, are
out of repair and insufficient
for the needs of the district
As to the best location at the
present time the court at
Kamloops is for cases along
the line of the C. P. R. and
it seems to us that the best
location for the ne-v comt
house would be at Lillooet
as when the Pacific Great
Eastern is built, and according to the railway bill passed last session, it is to be
built in the immediate
future, the same advantages
which the grand jury claims
for Ashcroft apply to Lille o^t and that with such an
arrangement the law can be
administered at the greatest
convenience and at a minin-
um of expense to the country
Elsewhere in this issue
will be seen a communnica-
tion to The Prospector in regard to the removal of the
court from Clinton to Ashcroft, which owing to a mistake was not credited. It
should be signed "Lillooet

INDIAN MURDERERS
It must be manifest to the
public of the province that the
capture of the two Indian cut-
laws who murdered Provincial
Constable Kindness near Clinton
is imperafcva if safety of [ife
and se.'ur'ly of property, especially in the neighborhopd-jf Indian reservations, are to be assured. 1 he task of locating and
capturing them, however, may
prove more difiieuit than is at
pr_ en! imagined. Little question can exist that the Indians
all over the province sympathize
with these murderers; some
openly with them and all secretly
and the consequence is that they
will lend them every assistance
in eluding discovery and capture.

is termed the war-path. The result might be the murder of
white men in isolated districts
and acts of robbery against settlers. It is this danger that
must be guarded aga'rjst by the
infliction of prompt and severe
penalties upon those guilty of
violence or illegal acts of any
kind.—Vancouver Sun.

MINING NAN PRAISES
CADWALLADER CREEK
Bright Prospects For Bridge
River.    Fifty  Men  at
Work on New Road.
' 'It would be hard to find a
camp in British Columbia where
the prospects are so good and
which has been neglected,"
said a well known Victoria mining man recently, speaking with
regard to the Bridge River District. "I have been in nearly
every mining camp in the western country and nowhere have I
seen more promising indications
for a big camp than in this section. The mineral bearing area
of the Cadwallader section, where
several claims are now being successfully worked consists of a
broad dyke of diorate extending
in a north westerly and south
easterly direction and carries numerous veins of free milling
quartz. These veins are remarkable for their lateral length
and uniform width. I have had
my eye on this section for a number of years and have known
where many thousands of dollars have been taken out in the
course of a few week's work.
There is blweady two stamp mills
on the creek. One on the Lome
property and one on the Ccront-
tion, while several other claim
owners have announced their intentions of putting in plants as
soon as the wagon road is completed to insure a more economical mode of transportation. The
wagon road will be a great factor
in the making of the camp. It
will not only mak it possible for
the owners of mines to install
machinery to develope and operate their properties on a scientific and extensive scale, but will
render it much more convenient
and rapid to get supplies into the
mines. At present there is
something like forty or fifty men
employed on the road, rushing it
to completion and at the present
rate it should be finished by the
middle of the season. I conscientiously believe that Bridge
River will yet make the best
mining camp in the province."
PROSPECTORS GOING
TO BRIDGE RIVER
George Bell, who with Grant
White, is interested in the recent strike on Eldorado creek, a
tributary of Tyaughton, was in
town for several days this week
making arrangements for supplies to take into their new find.
He reports that the snow in that
section is now going off and that
it is only a matter of a few
weeks until they will be able to
push in and open up their claims.
It is their intention to do extensive development work this year
and to install an arrastra with
which they will handle the ore
until such a time that they have
opened up the property enough
to warrant more extensive machinery. Mr. Bell will leave
this week with supplies which he
will take to Grant White's ranch
to be in readiness to go in to
the claims as soon as the snow
will permit.
MINERAL CLAIMS
RECORDED
Already the result of the numerous prospecting parties in the
district is being shown by
the claims recorded in the gov-
ertment office. Since the snow is
sufficiently gone to allow prospectors to begin operations the
the number of claims recorded
shows a marked increase. The
totals for the year thus far by
sections of the district is as follows: Bridge River 9, Cayoosh
Creek 4, Blackwater 6, Fraser
River 4, Seton Lake 2, Tyangh-
ton 3, Townsite 1.
GREATEST TRIUMPH
OF EDISON'S CAREER
Thomas A. Edison, it was
learned today, has accomplished the greatest triumph
of his career. He has perfected a method of separating paying elements of ores
that will mean hundreds of
thousands of dollars a year
in the productive wealth of
the country.
The inventor is not at this
time prepared to give out
details of his new method,
but it is learned that a plant
that required $250,000 to
operate can be carried on by
the new Edison method for
$60,000.
The object of this method
is to do away with the term
"low grade" ore. With the
new system valuable metal
can be extracted from all
ores. The machinery is said
to be so simple that a child
can operate it. Those closely associated with the inventor declare he believes his
new invention is the most
valuable he has given to
mankind.

BEGIN SURVEY WORK ON
LINE ALONG HOWE SOUND
The actual location of the
much-talked-of-line from
Vancouver to Fort George
will be commenced next
week by a survey party
which is now being organized in the city under the direction of Mr. John Nelson
of this city, recently of the
staff of Cleveland & Cameron, engineers. This survey
party will make the final
location of that portion of
the Pacific and Great Eastern Railway line from North
Vancouver and Newport at
the head of He we Sound.
Mr. John Callaghan, chief
engineer of the Pacific Great
Eastern Railway, who recently left a similar position
in the service of the Grand
Trunk Pacific, and who has
been in the city for the past
week, is actively supervising
the work of outfitting the
initial survey party.
Mr. Nelson's party will
have the difficult task of endeavoring to secure an easy
grade and avoiding as much
unnecessary costly work as
possible along that portion
of the route extending from
Port Atkinson to close to
Newport. The shore line
along the eastern side of
Howe Sound is almost as bad
as the Fraser canyon and it
is expected that many short
tunnels and heavy rock cuts
will be necessary in order to
get anything like a straight
line. Owing to the proximity of the towering mountains that line that that picturesque arm of the gulf
thert is one thing left for
the engineers to do in locating the railway line, and
that is to skirt the shore at
a safe height above the tide
level. It sounds very simple
but anyone who has been
along that portion of the
coast knows wkat a difficult
task it will prove.
In about two weeks time
a second survey party will
will be outfitted here to survey that portion of the line
from Newport to the Green
Lake summit. Later on,
three or possibly four more
parties will be organized and
outfitted here to make the
final survey of the line from
Green Lake to Fort George.
The greater part of this survey work will be completed
by fall, according to statements of the company's engineering staff and construction will probably be started
at some point between North
Vancouver and Newport by
July 1, in accordance with
the railway company's charter with the provincial government.
ASHCROFT   WANTS
THE   COURT  HOUSE
At the assizes recently
held at Clinton the grand
jury in their presentment
recommended the removal
of the court from Clinton on
account ef the court house
being too small and the accomodation of the jurors
both in the court and in the
town being insufficient.
Now, while this is perfectly true in the present
state of transition of the
upper country the transfer
of the court from Clinton to
Ashcroft as the grand jury
recommended seems premature.
There is already one court
house where the assizes are
held at Kamloops within 50
miles of Ashcroft, and to
transfer the3 Clinton court
there would be taking it
farther away from the country where the most of the
trial cases come from.
When the Pacific Great
Eastern Railway is built the
court should be here or at
some point on the railroad
so that the judges, counsel,
jurors, etc., can all reach the
court by train, whereas if
the court is at Ashcroft the
prisoners and witnesses from
up-country points would be
brought down to Lillooet
and then transferred to Ashcroft by s'age or auto and
likewise the jury unless the
people of Ashcroft desire a
monopoly of furnishing the
jury as well as the court
house.

mine,  fixing  it  up  where
necessary and   widening  it
out in places.   Some of the
smaller pieces of machinery
are already at their destination and the whole lot will
