WATER RIGHTS ADJUSTMENT.
A Board of Investigation of
Water Rights was held at Lytton
last week, to adjudicate upon the
different claims to water rights
on the Fraser river from Lytton
to 20 Mile Creek on the Lillooet-
Lytton road. Many of the water
records date back to the times of
the Cariboo gold excitement in
the '60's and some even earlier.
One record has been found dating
back to 1858. The water was
recorded in the first place for
mining purposes, but as the
miners usually cultivated a small
piece of land around their claims,
the practice grew up of making
the water record cover the irrigation of land. The Gold Commissioner was in those days the
official who issued water records.
He was, in fact, almost an absolute monarch in the mining districts.
The Board at Lytton dealt,
amongst others, with the records
on Bootanie Creek affecting the
New England Company's Industrial School property four miles
above Lytton on the Fraser. On
this creek records are also held
by the Loring estate and W. McKay. There was a hot dispute
between the New England Company and the other parties who
claimed that they had been at
times deprived of their share of
the water by the N. E. Company
which was alleged to be using
water on land not appurtenant to
their records. The N. E. Co. is
not a commercial concern as
might be supposed, but is an Industrial and boarding school for
Indian boys supported by a society or "company" of the laymen of the Church of England.
They were organized in the time
of Cromwell for the purpose of
civilizing the savage of North
America.
The other cases dealt with at
Lytton affected the Earl ranch
(now the property of R.V. Winch)
the various Indian reserves above
Lytton, the Ruddick, Kane and
Roberts ranches, and others.
In the case of one of these
ranches, it developed that the
owner has apparently been using
the water for a great many
years under a record granted to
a pre-emption situated miles
away on the Thompson river
below Spence's Bridge.
The Board reserved all their
decisions until after their present
trip is ended at Vernon.
A number of the legal profession attended the meetings, being
representatives from the offices
of Sir C. H. Tupper; Bowser,
Reid & Wall bridge ; Lucas &
Lucas and Ellis & McQueen, Vancouver; whilst Mr. Cochrane, of
Billings & Cochrane, of Vernon,
watched the interests of the Indians on behalf of the Indian
Department at Ottawa. J. A.
Maughan, of Merritt, attended
on behalf of clients on the Fraser
river.
The Board is assisted in its
work by deLatour, engineer of
the water district, who makes
the preliminary surveys, maps
and measurements of water in
the various streams and gathers
all necessary data for the Board
in advance.
Services will be held in the
English Church, in Lillooet, on
Sunday, Nov. 9. Holy communion at 8 a. m.; morning service
at 11; evening service at 7:30.
ITEMS ABOUT TOWN.
There is some talk of a horse
race to" take place next week, in
Lillooet.
Mr. J. F. Rowlands, accompanied by Mr. Mason, returned
from Pavilion on Tuesday.
Mr. and Mrs. A. W. A. Phair
left yesterday to spent a week or
two at the coast.
The hatchery dance came off as
anticipated. All — and that a
large number—had a good time.
A 5-ton auto truck is now making trips between the C. P. R.
line and Lillooet.
J. Cuthbert and F. Bishop,
ranchers from the North Fork,
are in town for a few days.
Mr. Wm. Manson, the well-
known guide, returned from a
very successful hunting trip last
Monday evening.
Julius Levy, who conducted a
cigar stand in this town for over
a year, has sold out and departed
for the coast.
Mr. Jas. McDougall, superintendent of construction on Anderson Lake, was in town Tuesday.
Mr. J. Martin, school inspector,
arrived in town yesterday. He
is making an official trip throughout the interior of B. C.
Snow is getting low and wood
going higher; $11 a cord now,
when cut up to stove lengths,
and very scarce at that.
Mrs. D. McLeod, wife of the
road foreman, arrived in Lillooet
on Wednesday, and will possibly
remain during the winter months.
Dr. Kilburger. the eye specialist, arrived in Lillooet yesterday.
He is located at the Excelsior
Hotel.
There is now a big railroad
camp at Kelly Lake, and construction work is going ahead
with a rush.
These days it is common to see
a dozen passenger autos lined up
on the streets of Lillooet, and
they all seem to be doing a good
business.
C. P. Dam, the South Fork
placer miner, arrived from the
coast yesterday. He brought
considerable freight, which will
be immediately forwarded to the
South Fork.
As Water Commissioner Rowlands will be in town for several
clays, it will be a good opportunity for those holding water rights
in this vicinity to have an interview with him.
Travelers on the Cariboo road
speak well of the hospitality of
the various wayside hostelries on
that thoroughfare, and particularly so of the 59-Mile House,
kept by Fairburn & Harvey.
Lieut. H. P. Pilcher and wife,
who have been in Lillooet mountains for over a month hunting
big game, arrived in town last
Tuesday. They had been out
with Frank Gott, who piloted
them to some excellent shooting
grounds.
Jack Cadwallader, after an
absence of 13 years, was a visitor
in Lillooet this week and shaking
hands with old-timers. The famous Cadwallader Creek, on Bridge
River, is named after Jack's
father, who was a pioneer of
that district.
NOTES FROM CLINTON DISTRICT.
(Special Correspondence.
A long-felt want in Clinton
seems to be at last filled, namely,
a resident doctor. Clinton has
heretofore be«n served in this
connection from Ashcroft, but
the community is now growing
to such an extent that the old
system seems to be inadequate.
In these days of automobiles and
quick traveling thirty miles does
not seem far, but the winter
months are long, and a call from
Ashcroft necessitates several
changes on. the way, from auto
to buggy, to sleigh—a journey
which is unpleasant to the doctor
and also inconvenient as regards
to time, to the patient. These
trips have sometimes to be made
at night, which is a hardship.
Doctor Edgelow, who practised
for some time last year at the 150
Mile House, and who is lately
from Athabasca, Alberta, has
already commenced practice. He
will shortly bring his wife and
family from Athabasca, where
they are now residing. The doctor has secured a small acreage
near the townsite, where he intends building in the near future.
A small band of horses belonging to the Imperial Company,
were recently driven through
town for wayside and northern
points, presumably for carrying
the mails when winter sets in;
also several stage coaches and
express wagons were taken
through for the same purpose.
POLICE COURT PROCEEDINGS.
Government teams are still
busy hauling lumber from Mat
Botterill's sawmill at 51-Mile
Creek to Cache Creek. The two
bridges over the Bonaparte and
one over Cache Creek are to be
refloored this winter.
Mr, F. C. Campbell, late Government Agent of Clinton, paid
a visit to his recent home. On
his return to New Westminster
he was accompanied by Mrs.
Campbell, who has been staying
for a short time with Mrs. Archie
McDonald.
Quite an interesting race over
the Clinton race-track last week,
and it drew quite a crowd. Two
horses belonging to Messrs. War-
dell and Wallace being matched,
resulted in a win for the latter.
Government road camps are
gradually coming in for the winter months.
Down o» the Short Portage
there is a very energetic Indian
constable—John Paul. John used
to be a good drinking man himself—some say he is yet, but we
don't believe it. At any rate he
nabbed a couple of intoxicated
Swedes on the Short Portage reserve; but he had no place to put
them for safe keeping, so he took
them to the rancherie and went
through the formality of a kangaroo court. He delivered a
severe lecture to the prisoners,
and informed them that they were
getting off cheap; if they had
appeared before a Lillooet court
they would have got "twice as
more." As no fine was imposed
and the Swedes let go, John is
under the impression that his
court proceedings are unprofitable. As arresting constable he
gets nothing, and as judge he
receives abuse.

Mr. Dan Hamilton, recently
appointed postmaster at Lajoie
Falls, Bridge river, has declined
the position. He states that Lajoie Falls is considerably out of
the beaten path of prospectors
and others, and claims that the
South Fork of Bridge river is the
proper place to establish the office,
the wagon road to Cadwallader
creek passing that point.
D. L. Paxton, part owner and
superintendent of the "Wayside"
mineral claims on Bridge river,
arrived in town the other day. For
the past eight months Mr. Paxton has been systematically developing his property and now
has over 600 feet of tunnel work
completed. Some very rich ore
is now in sight.
At the sale of crown-granted
mineral claims held by Caspar
Phair on Monday last, no purchasers were found for the two
claims offered—the "Rosemount"
and the "White Rose."
Mr. McMillan, accompanied by
Mr. LeMare, district forester,
are off to the Chilcoten country.
Mr. LeMare informs us that they
hope to combine pleasure with

COPPER MINING.
Referring to the paragraph in
our issue of the 17th Oct. regarding the copper belt running parallel to the Fraser river between
Lytton and Lillooet, we are again
reminded of the possibilities of
this section by having some
samples of native copper handed
to us in our office, found in the
sluice box of a placer miner between this town and Lytton.
According to the report of the
Minister of Mines, the amount of
copper produced in this province
in 1912 smelted during the year,
was 51,456,537 lbs. fine copper,
valued at the average New York
market price for copper at $8,-
408,513. These figures represen t
the amount of copper actually recovered as nearly as it is possible
to ascertain; the amount of copper really in the ores mined would
be approximately 25 per cent,
greater. This is the largest production of copper ever made in
the province, exceeding the banner year, 1908, by 4,181,923 lbs.
The districts that produced this
amount of copper were as follows:
Boundary District... .33,372,12'jlbs.
Rossland  2,539,900 "
Coast and Cassiar... .15,518,181 "
Nelson        26,257 "
51,456,537 lbs.'
On the Quesnelle river, near
20-Mile Creek, there is an excellent showing of copper ore. What
we regret to say is, that in the
Gold Commissioner's report on
mining in this district no mention
is made of copper, for the reason
that there has been no prospecting for this mineral in our district. The object of this article
is to stimulate and encourage
prospectors, for it is our firm belief that valuable copper ores lie
dormant in our district, only
awaiting the pick of the prospector to disclose.
Copper is a metallic element
known from early antiquity because of its valuable mechanical
properties,  and of the fact that
it  occurs  both  in the metallic
form  and  as    easily  reducible
oxides.    The chief ores of copper are of three classes: 1. Native
copper.    2.  Copper oxides and
carbonates. 3. Copper sulphides,
generally   associated  with iron
pyrites.   Of these ores,  native
copper and copper sulphides yield
very nearly the entire  output.
The crude metal is obtained from
its ores in two ways, the dry
process or smelting in furnaces,
and the wet process—extraction
by chemical solutions. The latter
method, though used in Spain, is
of little importance in this country.    The refining of the crude
metal is   likewise accomplished
by dry or wet process.
The dry process of smelting is
divided into two classes. First,
that applicable to native copper
ores; secondly, that process applicable to copper sulphide ores.
The treatment of the native copper ores in the Lake Superior
region is conducted as follows:
The ore averages about 2 1-2 per
cent, of copper, but the metal
being malleable and light, is
easily but not completely separated from the friable and lighter
gangue-rock by stamp crushing
and subsequent separation by
water concentration on jigs and
tables. The concentrates, containing a little gangue, are melted in a reverberatory furnace;
the impurities are oxidized and
pass into the slag; the molten
metal is then refined by "poling"
with a green wood pole until of
proper purity, called "pitch," on
the attainment of which it is
ladled into moulds, forming wire
bars, ingots, or cakes. Copper
from the Lake Superior district
commands the highest market
price on this continent on account
of its uniform composition.
The treatment of sulphide ores
of copper generally consist of a
roasting in heaps, kilns or furnaces, whereby a large part of the
sulphur and the volatile impurities are oxidized and pass off in
the waste gases. The roasted ore,
containing much oxidized iron, is
then smelted in a reverberatory
furnace with silicious material
which yields a matte of copper,
iron and sulphur and a slag of
oxidized iron and silica; the matte
being heavier, is easily separated
from the molten slag.
Formerly the first matte was
re-roasted a»d fused one or more
times, but the present treatment
consists of a preliminary roast in
a furnace. The passage of the
air oxidizes the sulphur to sulphur di-oxides, which passes off
in the gasses, while the impurities and the iron are oxidized and
combine with the silica of the
lining of the converter to form a
specifically lighter slag, which is
separated from tl e metal, leaving the latter, containing any
gold and silver present in the ore
ready to be cast into anoces cr
other shapes for future refining,
which is generally done by electrical process.

IN MEMORIUM.
1! Was Going to Buy a Lillooet Hotel
with a Bogus $320,000 Cheque.
The sudden death of James H. j
S. Rowbottom, on Sunday morn-,
ing last, came as a surprise and !
shock to the whole of the inhabi-
tants of Lillooet town,
It was known that he had been
in poor health of late, but no one;
had any idea that his condition j
was so critical.  He was admitted \
to our hospital on Saturday afternoon, and on Sunday morning he
was called away.
Mr. Rowbottom came to this
province in 1S94 with Mr. Lancelot Knowles. For some time after
he came into this district he lived
on Pemberton Portage, where he
tried farming; this vocation did
not suit him, and he developed a
better knowledge of rocks than
he did of roots, so he took to
prospecting.
Prospecting! that's what they call it;
Hard labor and hunger and cold.
We can confidently assert that
Row bottom's knowledge of this
district was unequalled by any
one; there was hardly a hole or
corner that he did not know. His
knowledge of minerology was excellent, and as a rough-and-ready
surveyor he was unequalled. As
a conversationalist he was unrivalled ; his stories of his hunting
and prospecting trips, with his
many hair-breadth escapes, would
fill a book. His vocal and musical powers were most delightful.
Altogether he was a man of most
charming personality, and a true
friend. To be acquainted with
him was to like him; to know
him was better.
Dear old Jimmie: kind, genial
little Jim; a friend to everyone;
a kindly wcrd anu cheerful smile
for everybody.
Many people will come and
many leave, but there will never
be a man more liked than Little
Jimmie "Powton."
P. J. Wilson, who was arrested
a month or so ago in Hazleton,
B. C.-, on the charge of horse
stealing, has been giving the
authorities in Vancouver a run
for their money. Following the
arrest in Hazleton, he awaited
trial at the Prince Rupert assizes
and secured bail. Taking advantage of the latter he slipped down
to Vancouver, where he posed as
a man of great wealth. He did
not look the part, however. At
all events he scored once or twice.
He made out a worthless check
for $2000, it is alleged, and with
it secured an automobile. He
rode in it to Tacoma, and there
was pinched for speeding. When
searched he carried a check for
$382,000, also worthless.
It is said previous to his jaunt
to Tacoma he had made arrangements for buying a Lillooet hotel,
a $6000 yacht and a fleet of fishing vessels from plans he had
prepared. In short, Mr. Wilson
was a busy man, whose time was
valuable.
At the time of buying the automobile in Vancouver he wore a
Vandyke beard.
RAILROAD ITEMS.
THE TOWNSITE OF CLINTON.
Our correspond nt thus describes the late survey of Clinton:
"The re-survey of Clinton town-
site is now comphtc. The vicinity is one sea of pegs and posts.
All corners of roads and streets
are marked with concrete blocks,
which have been religiously
buried.to keep them out of harm's
way. The majority of lots have
a fifty foot frontage; this seems
a pity; surely 100 feet would not
Ai^^W^^^^^^'
have been too much, considering
the amount of available building
land at hand.   At any rat^, such
small lots puts Clinton on a par
with some cities—great and small
—which   is   some   satisfaction.
Many  amusing   incidents  have
been   recorded   during   the   re-
survey of our townsite.   It seems
that in days gone by it was not
considered good policy to build
wholly on one's own lot; the whole
upper country was at hand, why
not take in just a few more feet
into your fence?   Consequently,
houses are occasionally found in
the middle of the street; in some
cases a street line is marked as
going through some one's front
door; barns, woodsheds, etc., are
found to be on government land
or  another  lot.     One building
recently erected is reported to be
on four different lots instead of
one, and it is also feared that in
some cases private dwellings are
wrongly located.   To move these
offending buildings would be awkward, to say the least; some, we
are afraid, might collapse in the
process. However, all these little
inconveniences will sink into oblivion when the P. G. E. whistles
sound through this fertile valley.'

Hundreds of pre-emptions in

the Provincial Government of the
Land Act compelling pre-emptors
to reside on the property staked
and to carry out the improvements. Scores of pre-emptions
have been made, in the past for
purely speculative purposes. It
is stated the government is taking steps to put an end to the
practice in order to conserve the
land for genuine settlers.
