Prospector readers may find it interesting to peruse the following resume of the
g ime act. Those who are interested in
8' ooting or disposing game, should cut
this out, and place it where it can be
conveniently referred to:

The Lillooet-Lytton Road.
The completion of the Lillooet-Lytton
wagon will be about the end of this
■: month. At present forty men aie at
work on the elide and are gradually
opening up a thoroughfare on the per-
. mindicular rock. Tne trail is wide enough
to permit people to cross on foot and in
a couple weeks time should be in pretty
good shape. The bank is being taken off
considerably so as to slant back from the
road-   When completed across the rock
work it will make a first class road with
solid foundation. The distance across
the slide is one-half mile. The piece of
road built this year on the Lytton end
of the slide is a good piece of work.
Mr. J. H. Anthony made a trip over
the toad last week for the government,
with his bicycle and cyclometer measuring the distance and marking the miles.
The distance from the Lytton station
to Lillooet is forty-seven miles, exceeding the dis'ance which it is supposed to
have been by four miles. The old distance was was taken from the trail and
the numerous short cuts made the difference.      -
What Booze Will Do.
Last week a half-breed by the name of
Jimmy Raines arrived in town from the
Bonaparte and secured enough firewater
to get several Indians camped at the
bridge "full up to the neck." During
the saturnalia of debauchery a couple of
the abpriginies proceeded to fight and as
a result one of them is badly punctured
in the chops probably with the assistance
of a broken bottle. Raines left for parts
unknown with Con table Burns in his
track. A big Indian called the Colt is
now in the skookum house awaiting
for further development of the fracas.
An official report will be made shortly
by the stipendiary and if the assays are
not satisfactory the bacchanalian artist
will be forwarded to a neighbering town
to prospect further on the roads and
government property.
Having secured the closure of fruit
stands on Sunday, at Vancouver, the
church people are now preparing long
petitions urging a curfew by law.
A Washington despatch says that a
modus vivendi will be shortly arranged
by which Canada will get free ports on
Lynn canal and Pyramid harbor.
The Westminster lacrosse team have
challenged tbe Shamrocks, the champions of the east, for a match on the
exhibition grounds in October for the
championship of the world. It is stated
that the easterners willl come, their
expenses is guaranteed by the coast
team.	
Parties interested in the construction
of the large dredger at Lytton arrived
there this week and will make arrangements to commence work as soon as
possible. Four car loads of machinery
have arrived and a few more are expected along at any time. The timber,
etc. for the scow is also expected shortly.
The dredger will be 110 feet in length
ami when it commences work will be
able to handle considerable gravel a day.
LOCAL   NEWS.

RIQHTS TO SURFACE OF niNERAL CLAIMS.
The social held in the Methodist
church Thursday evening was a success
The church was crowded and the program was rendered in good style all taking their parts well. The refreshments
were served by the ladies of the congregation and all seemed to enj >y their
i-e-cream, notwithstanding the chilly
weather. A collection was taken up
which amounted to $12.60 to go towards
the fund of purchasing an argan for the
church. This social it probably the
best one yet held in Lillooet everything
being satisfactory arranged and not a
hitch in the proceedings — not even a
howl from the numerous infants which
usually are in abundance at these
gatherings.
Macpherson Is Solid.
A Vancouver despatch says:—Robt.
Macphereon, M. P. P., strongly refutes
the purport of the interview with himself appearing in Sunday's Victoria
Colonist stating that prospective legislation would eompel him to vote against
the Government. Macpherson reminds
the public that recently tbe Colonist
unwittingly was compelled to call this
selfsame interviewer a mendacious liar.
He declares that the legislation of the
Government has his fullest approval.
He concluded a letter .to the News
Advertiser thuB: "The Colonist should
know that we fought too many years in
this Province to rid it of the Government (largely in the interests of the
small Victoria oligarchy) for us now to
take any measure to get that oligarchy
quickly back into power again."
War Inevetable.
The Pretoria correspondent of the London Morning Post says: Tbe Boer officials, after reading the cabled reports of
Mr. Chamberlain's Birmingham speech
considered that war ia inevitable. The
speech has undoubtedly inflamed the
war spirit. Tbe Boers are now all alarmed except those in Johannesburg. Their
commissariat is fairly good. All the forts
are simply victualled. The ammunition
which was allowed to pan through Cape
Colony, came direct to Pretoria. It was
never intended for the Orange Free
State.
President Kruger does not hesitate to
t xercise the vhw that war is almost inevitable. He has stocked the presidency
with ample supplies of provisions to secure his own person from privation and
he is often heard repeating the Seventy-
third Psalm.
The Boers are energetically engaged in
poisoning the minds of tne natives again
th*> British, and have approached the
Zulu chief, Dinizuln, who appears undecided which cause to e-poa.s. But the
Zulus are prepared for tbe expected
fighting and it must be remembered
that Dinizulu was deported to St. Helena with several other chiefs and kept a
prisoner there by tbe British for several
jeirs.
The Dreyfus trial appears to be assuming the general character of an all-round
farce. To sentence a man to anything
on such testimony as is being given
would make justice blush even in
Fiance.
Mineral Claim  Holders Will Not be Deprived ol Their Righto
About three weeks ago a meeting of
representatives of mine owners and
other mineral claim holders was held in
Greenwood, to discuss the question of
purchase of surface rights of mfneral
claims. It was represented to the
meeting that certain mining "companies
had for some time previously been endeavoring to purchase from tbe Provincial Government the surface rights
to certain Crown-granted mineral claims,
owned by these companies, respectively,
but thus far without success. Attention
was directed as well to the fact that the
Government had advertised inviting
offers to purchase the .urface rights of
of a fractional mineral claim, and the
opinion was expressed that if this course
were taken in one case, it might also be
in the respective cases of those present.
Later it was shown that there were
probably very good reasons for the
action of the government in the instance
cited which were entirely absent in
cases of ordinary mineral claims, and
that the course followed in this particular ca.e waa a very desirable one in
the pnblic interest. Since then representations have been made to the
Chief Commissioner of Lands and
Works, who has satisfactorily explained
the cause ef earlier delay, and that
Grown grants for surface rights of
several of the claims to which reference
had been made had since been issued.
Assurance has as well been given that
all applications made by persons other
than the owners of mineral claims to
purchase the surface rights of crown
granted claims have been promptly refused, as also have applications made to
pre-empt and purchase lands which
were known to encroach upon previously
located mineral claims. It is, therefore,
apparent that tbe Government has no
intention of depriving owners of claims
or any righis or privileges they are legally entitled to, nor, indeed, to do anything that may tend to hamper the
development of the mineral resources
of the Province. It is te be expected,
though, that care will at all times be
taken to see that the publi. interests
are safeguarded in these as in other
matters affecting the alienation of Crown
land.
The approximate salmon pack for tbe
season is 660,000 cases, or about the
same as in 1896. It is a fisherman's year.
Owing to the high price of fish canners
will make little.
In the Dreyfus trial the only evidence
of much importance last week was the
handwriting experts who admitted their
error regarding the author o. the bor-
deau, claiming that it was Estherhaxy
and not Dreyfus that wrote it.

Apetitioiis being circulated  among
the interest-_ parties on  Cadwallader
creek to have the  ierminuH of the  mail
route changed from the  Bend'Or  camp
to the Sucker Creek hotel.   T e change
would be a decided convenience to  the

Ex-attorney-general Martin :s bent on
trying oget revenge for the action of
the iTHK'iers in suspending him. He has
written to the Law Society making a
charge of " unprofessional conduct"
against L. G. McPhilipp, Q. C, of Vancouver. Mr. Martin, it is understood,
has threatened to make complaints
against other practitioners.
DREDOINQ MACHINERY.
A Question of Duty Upon Machinery Used
In Hydraulic Mining;.
A. L. Russell of Vancouver, on behalf
of a committee of gentlemen who are
largely interested in dredging on the
Fraser and elsewhere in British Columbia, some time since forwarded a
memorial to the Hon. William Patterson,
Minister of Customs, relative to duty
upon dredging machinery. : Mussrs.
Maxwell, Morrison and Bostock were
likewise corresponded with, as was also
B. T. A. Bell secretary of the Canadian
Mining Institute, Ottawa. In reply io
the petition which was forwarded to the
Hon. Mr. Patterson in July last, the
following letter has been received by
Mr. Russell, which explains itself:
CUSTOriS DEPARTMENT OF CANADA
'bttawa, Aug. 12,1899.   ,
A. L. Russell, Vancouver.
Sir,—Referring to your letter of the
27th lilt., endorsed by Mr'.'George K.
Maxwell, M. P., and enclosing petitions
signed by Wm. Rattray, manager of the
Fraser River Consolidated Gold Co., and
others, requesting the free entry of
dredging machinery, I am directed to
inform you that it has been, determined
that elevators of floating dredgers uesd
in mining submerged alluvial gold-bearing deposits, may be entered free of duty
under tariff item No. 555, aa being
elevators for hydraulic mining.
Under tariff item 542 free entry is provided for: "Iron or steel masts, or parts
thereof, and iron or steel beams, angles,
■neetf-, plate', knees and.cable chain for
wooden, iion, steel  or compete  shijs
and vensels; and iron, steel or brass
manufactures which at the time of theit
importation are of a class or kind not
manufactured in Canada, when imported
for use in the construction or equipment
of ships or vessels."
As floating dredgers are classed as vessels, for tariff purposes, the article required in the construction and equipment o. dredgers used in mining the gold
levels of the Fraser and other rivers in
British Columbia are thus to a large extent allowed free entry under the tariff
provisions above named. The chief
article subject to duty in connection with
such dredgers are the boilers, enginer,
etc., required for motive power, and
these are made in Canada.
(Signed)        JOHN M.DOUGALL,
Commissioner.

WHEN ON A WANE.
Kid McCoy Says Champions Are Easy to
Defeat.
"I can never forget that match I made
with Jim Corbett that never came off,"
observed Kid McCoy. "We were to meet
at Buffalo Jast \u_nst and I had trained
a month for the boat, and knew that
Corbett could not whip me, as I would
was better fitted than he was. I felt so
confident of beating him that 1 would
have given my last dollar, and given
odds, if necessary. Had I whipped Corbett there might be another story to
tell as regards my fight with Tom
Sharkey. A year before John L. Sullivan was whipped by Corbett there was a
chance for either Frank Slavin or
Charley Mitchell to meet Sullivan. Slavin begged his backer to put up a stake
to meet Sullivan, but Sullivan's name
hypnotized tbe moneyed man behind
the Sydney cornstalk. Mitchell was also
anxious to meet John L., but lVmy
Moore, Mitchell's father-in-law, was
afraid that Sullivon old as ho wa<>, was
too big a game for Charley. If either of
them had known how far gone John w»s
physically they would have snapped up
*h\t bet. Even Sullivan was unaware
ttttat he was on the wane. It was the
4id story.    The champion thought him-
ilf invincible and at the height of his
powers when he was really on the down
grade. And its odd that the public as a
rule, has more confidence in a champion
when he's waning than when he is at
his best."

The baseball team has done nothing

funds for rtieir trip'to Ashcroft in a few
weeks. The weather has been quite
bad lkleiyj b_k there is enough of fine

something- No doubt _i_ months
steady practice would hurt them.
Several residents of town have
been
annoyed lately by their neighbors cows
breaking into their gardens ani destrov-
their vegetable?. The cows around
town are pretty smart opening gates,
and very few ot the latches wi)l stop

Athletic Association.
Editor Prospector,—Sir: I don't think
there is any doubt but th_t when the
baseball team took round the hat to solicit subscriptions to purchase their necessary outfit and provide funds for entertaining the team ftom Ashcroft, with
the exception of a few received very little
encouragement.
The fact of the matter I think, was
that the general public did not know
then the stuff the boys were made of,
and thought that it was merely the whim
of anidle hour. Our baseball team however, have proved themselves right good
sportsmen, capable of playing an excellent game, and taking their defeat like
men. Therefore, I feel confident that
if an appeal be made to the town a good
subscription list now would be the result.
The love of athletics and outdoor games
has made us Britishers the race we are
today, and I would therefore very respectfully throw out the suggestion, that
an athletic association should be started
here, which would not only embrace
baseball, cricket, running, jumping &c,
in the summer time, but football, boxing and singlestick in the winter months.
The use of Santini's hall for two evenings a week iu the winter time could, I
have no doubt, be secured at a reasonable rate, where the manly art of self
defence, singlestick, use of Indian clubs
could be practised and learnt.
As an old amateur athlete I shall be
very pleased to assist iu any way possible the carrying out of the above suggestions or any other scheme that will
tend to benefit of the young men of our
town.   I am yours faithfully
Bkitibiiicr.
A highly moral and intellectual young
gentleman tells this story with great
" eclat." This story was toll his mama
and his mama told him. At a school
the other day the fair preceptiess was
instructing the juvenile mind about the
danger of contagious diseases, and enumerated them with eelerity, such, as,
typhoid fever, etc. A bright little bqy
piped up "We have a .^ontagipu. disease in our flat.'' The teacher aghast.
(By the way, she had explained that
contagious meant catching.) .".What fjs
it?" inquired she anxious.l)*'»-Cbe lady
in the lower flat had 4 babvl\J*'T_uftt,V
replied the maiden blushing, "is not a
contagious di-ease." '• "Oh, yes it is"
answered the youngster triumphantly.
" The lady in the upper flat had a baby
the very next night."
