PROSPECTOR.
Vol. 3, No. 7.
LILLOOET, B. C, FRIDAY, AUG. 24, 1900
$2.00 a year.
The dredge across the river at Horse
Beef Bar is working away and is getting
up the gravel satisf ictorily.
A meeting of the Anderson Lake Mining and Milling Company will he held
in Ashcroft on Wednesday where business of importance will he transacted.
P. V. Heath this week purchase! an
interest in the Royal, Duke and Lerov
mineral claims, situated on Cadwallader and close to the Lorne and Woodchuck groups.
The pipe monitors etc, for the Scum
S"um hydraulic is at Seaton Lake and wil I
be moved along at once. The gang of
men at work on the ground have everything in readiness for the pipe and when
it arrives will speedily put it in place. It
is the intention to work the benches this
fall and during the winter the dam will
be rebuilt.
The mill at the Toronto-Lillooet Gold
Reefs Co's property is now in good
condition, but has been running rather
inegular the past week, owing to the
screens not being quiet right, but will be
replaced with new ones in a few days.
The rock crusher has been replaced by
the one from the Cache mill which is
working fine. The superintendent
Cololen G. T. Rives, has found tlie ore
to be of a peculiar nature of a eolid massive sulphide and much harder to crush
than anticipated and consequently, the
rolls are not putting through as much
as was expected. The values are in the
ore and whatever drawbacks laboring
under now will be overcome.
Thomas Thomas arrived in town this
week from Fire mountain eection where
he has been working on claims owned by
himself Paul Santini and Archie McDonald. He brought with him some
fine looking rock which carries gold and
copper and though the rock is sprinkled
fine gold. The rock on exhibition is
about as fine looking reck as has been
brought to town for some time. These
men own four claims which are about
seventeen miles from Harrisoa Lake.
Several ledges run through the claims
out of which good rock is obtained the
ledges averaging about three feet in
width. Mr. Thomas during the work
tapped the ledge ahout seventy feet below and found the ledge to be continuous and holding its width and producing good ore. The owners are wel)
satisfied with the claims and will hold
on and do some work to open them up
to better advantage.
As stated in last issue in connection
with the Lorne and Woodchuck deal
whicb Mr. John Dunlop and Mr. Leslie
Hill made, that Mr. Hill was representing Lord Ernest Hamilton, we
stated which is not correct as Mr. Hill is
representing a strong English campany
with no connection with the above parties. It is the intention of Mr. Hill to
put a number of men at wor. on these
properties as soon as their bond ii taken
up which will be November 1st, and will
most likely take iu a stamp mill during
.the winler. There is very liklihood of
the deal materializing as from theopinion
expressed is very favorable. In the
meantime the owners will continue to
run their arrastras and from reports received lately are keeping up the weekly
returns. With such a large property of
such good value with a strong company
at the head, the Biidge river section and
Lillooet generally will be developed into
a mining country second to none.
Horse Shoe Bend.
A change of property in the Lower
Bridge River has led to the prosecution
of development work up in that section
which will probably lead to the expenditure of several hundred thousand dollars
in the mining industry. The lease has
heen held by the Bridge River and
Lllooet Mining Company, a Hamilton,
Ont., affair, and comprised 15,000 feet
at the junction of that famous stream
and the North Fork. Upon the latter
3,000 feet are situated, while on the
main river the property extends 3,000
feet above the Fork and 9,000 feet more
down the river.
For some months Mr. W. W. Brown,
of New York, was occupied in prospecting the big property, which comprises
the benches on either side of the creek,
and found the result sufficiently fluttering to lead him to return East. There
four of his friends joined him in forming
the B idge River DevtlopmentCompary
with a paid up capital of $750,000, and
the 14 leases were taken over. Returning to tiiis Province, Mr. Brown at once
began operations and already has a
larjje number of men at work upon the
ditches, with the expectation of gett.ng a
portion of the property ready for a monitor next spring. Between July 1 last,
when^woik was commenced, and the
end of the season it is expected to spend
about $35,000. This will bring 5,000
inches of water from the North Fork
down into that portion of the property
which is situated on the main river,
above the juncton with the smaller
stream, which washing will be first
undertaken, with a pressure of 450
vertical feet. In addition to operating
this, next year additional development
to the extent of $40,000 is anticipated,
and for five years the compauy will
spend their capital at that rate per annum, or it may be slightly larger. The
fact that the bank to be washed is 500
feet high and 15,000 feet of creek length
will give one some idea of the magnitude of tl.e work which has just
been undertaken. The pipe which is at
present, being constructed at Armstrong
& Morrison's in Vancouver, will not for
some time exceed 1,000 feet, as the
ditches and flumeB carry water well
down to the point of commencement.
Two No. 4 monitors, with seven inch
nozzles, will be put iu for next year's
beginning.
At the Horee Shoe Bend, which is included in the propeity, it is being
planned that a cut-off will be driven to
divert the waters of the stream. This
will lay bare a broad stretch of river
bed, from which considerable coarse gold
has in the past been taken, single nuggets from there have been eold at Lillooet for as much as $150, aud upon the
whole of the property the gold has said
to he of a somewhat course run.
At present transportation into   these
claims is a somewhat difficult matter^
as only a packtrail, and a poor one at
that, has been put in. The same trail,
however, affords ingress to several other
propositions, and as some eight different
packing outfits travel, it is hoped
by the miners of that section that a
small government grant will be obtained
to help out their own expenditure upon
the trail.
Mr. Brown left last week for the east
to bring out his wife and family, aud is
expected to return very soon.
A Timely Warning.
Editor of The Prospector
Dear Sir,—Kindly permit space
in the columns of your paper
to call the attention of the
public and authorities to an overgrown
evil in this the Bridge River country it
appears that if a Si vash or any number
of Siwashes, wish to have a drunken
pow-wow they have only to retire Bridge
River anywhere frOm Gun Creek to Cad
wallaker will do, here they are quite
safe (as no official of the law will interfere) to carouse to their hearts content,
and will also be honored with frequent
sociable visits from their numerous
white tillicums, who of course can add
very valuable information in the school
of cups.
It ie well known that only a short
time ago as a resub of one of these debauches a Kloochman attempted suicide by drowning which no doubt she
would have accomplished but for the
timely rescue of some white friends who,
by the way, should bo recommended as
eligible to wear the Victoria Cross or
some other mark of distinction.
As the police and magistrates of the
district must be cognizant of the matter,
as it iB of no recent origin, but has been
going on for many months and is well
known all over the district, I fail to see
why they continue to ignore the matter
so long. Perhaps they are waiting for
some more serious ending of one of those
affairs, whereby a little public notoriety
may be gained, then they will rush to
the scene of action looking very grave
and officious and declare this thing niust
be stopped, .but would it not be better to
use a little prevention before anything
serious does occur as it certainly will if
not restricted.
Yours truly,
Bridge River Inebriate.

LEGISLATIVE ASSEflBLY.
Victoria B. C. August 19th:—After
hours debate on Thursday last, the
twelfth budget presented by the Hon.
Mr. Turner who has had a seat in the
house since 1887, was formally passed.
The opposition made no objections to
the vastly increased expenditure in
spite of the fact that it exceeded the revenue by half a million of dollars. The
total expenditure is placed-at $2,220,000
of which nearly one third will be devoted to public works. Amongst these
items the following appropriations are
found. AVest Lillooet, $15,200; East
Lillooet, $7,000; North Yale, $28,250;
West Yale, $16,000; East Yale, $38,700;
Cariboo, $19,700; S E Kootenay, $15,500;
N E Kootenay. $22,250,; Nelson, $11,200;
Rossland, $22,250; Slocan, $38,800; while
an appropriation of $30,000 has been
granted to the Cariboo main trunk road
and one of $2,000 to the Lillo'oet-Lytton
trunk road. The usual ferry subsidies
have also been made. In the details
under the head of education the salaries
of teachers are shown to have been restored, the monitors in particular being
raised from $30 to $40 per month. The
ptinciple is found to apply to the salaries
of civil servants, the reductions of 1898
having been swept away. A special
grant has been made to supplement the
incomes of the sheriff"., and the salaries
of the Country Court Judges, sitting as
stipendiary magistrates have been revised at the old rate of $500 per annum
and provision made for the payment of
arrears from December 1st 1898. The
restoration of the London agency has
been assured bv a grant of $10,000. Liberal giants in the lump sum of $55,000
are to be made to the hospitals of the
province, those of the city being calculated on a per capite rate, and tbe
others iu bulk. The grants to resident
physicians in 12 districts have also been
restored. Amongst these are Clinton,
Quesnellie Forks, Cadwallader Creek,
Nicola and Trout Lake. In view o
high rates now ruling in the money markets of the world the deficit will not be
covered by a loan act, but through the
accommodation at the ban_ in the current account. It is expectec that a substantial grant—possibly $50,000.—will
appear in the supplementary estimate
for the cost of a new Government House,
which will be erected on the site of the
old Carey Castle.
Under the head of the legislation, it
is noticed that the expenses of the
chainber alone, including salary of members for the present session will be $30,-
500, to which must of course be added
considerab'e sums for printing and othei
sessional work. The fact that education
at present requires $338,170 from the
Provincial Treasure has led the Government to announce that it is considering
a policy wherebv a larger share of thit-
expendi'ure will be met by the municipalities themselves.
An important announcement was
made during the week that the Government had adopted the policy now prevail,
ing at Ottawa of refusing charters to all
roads heading from the Upper Yukon tc
ihe Lynn Canal. They did this in order
to conserve Canadian interests and it it
believed that the two Governments are
taking steps towards the construction of
an All-Canadian route to the Goldtields
A the North. In pursuance of this policy
the Lake Bennet and the Chilcat  Pass
charters have been refused.
The Hon. Joseph Martin, contrary to
his established reputation proving a
quitter in the present race. During the
budget debate he was absent from the
House, and the real work and leadership of the opposition appears to have
fallen upon the shoulders of Mr. Curtis.
The Opposition having placed themselves on record by exceptionally strong
labor and anti-Chinese and anti-Charter
promoting resolutions, are said to be
about to drop these questions for the
present session in spite of the fact that
they still have numerous motions standing untouched. [During the passage of
the estimates, which ran into night
sessions, Oliver of Delta, in spite of the
Opposition stand for the fast driving of
business protested against being kept
out of his bed and also urged by way of
joke, that the sessional indemnity to the
members be increased along with the
salaries of everybody elee. In the
lobbies a member is credited with a desire of forming a union amongst the
members, having as its object, ihorter
hours and longer pay. The remark of
Mr. Mclnnes on budget night that the
Provincial Secretary was not responsible
for what he said raised the ire of that
gentleman, who did not allow the
dignity of a portfolio to prevent him
promptly inviting the member from
North Nanaimo to step outside. Being
called to order he ended by saying that
lie would speak to him at another time.
The next morning, however, Mr. Mclnnes tendered an apology, which was
accepted.
While the house as a rule is as serious
as a prayer meeting, amongst the new
members, a tendency ia noticeable to
loosen up things a bit. And so Mr.
Oliver has been poking fun at Mr. McPhillips for his perpetual making of
speeches. HiB latest break occured after
midnight on Thursday when noticing
the press gallery empty, he assured Mr.
McPhillips that bis speech had driven
the reporters to drown their sorrows at
the refreshment room.
Of sixty bills, four so far have been
assented to; 24 are ready for that same
assent, while several others have been
withdrawn or defeated.
The supplementary estimates will be
brought down on Wednesday and by
next week at the latest the house will
prorogue.
An adjourned meeting of the local Conservatives will be held in Dr. Sanson's
office tomorrow evening at 8 o'clock
sharp.
Mr. Alex. McArthur late of Barker-
ville, who has been in town the past
week will probably purchase property
here and take up his residence in Lillooet.
O. A. Harthorne and W. J. Gates are
in town from Cadwallader to purchase
another stock of supplies for them to
continue work on their claims. They
will leave again the first of the week.
D. H. Meany came down from McGillivray creek Wednesday where he has
been for the past month in charge of the
Anderson Lake Mining and Milling Co's
property. He leaves for Ashcroft tomorrow morning. THE PROSPECTOR, LILLOOET, B. C, FRIDAY, AUG. 24, 1900

Eastern papers are already tiring the
first shots in the Federal campaign of
1900.
While the situation at the Canadian
Pacific Bailway strike headquarters continue to improve, the trouble is not yet
over. The car-repairers have gone out
at Vancouver.
C6nsiderable complaints are made
that Indians in Bridge River section
receive intoxicants with impunity and it
is a common occurance to meet drunken Indians. From reports we learn that
there is an abunCance of whisky in tbe
camp, and if it ia a criterian of a good
camp than Bridge River can eclipse anything ever on earth.
The statement of the British Board of
Trade for July shows that there was an
increase of £328,000 in imports and £1,-
354,000 in exports. According to some
political economists these figures show
that Britain is rapidly approaching a
state of bankruptcy. Others think differently, among them those wbo are
chiefly interested and who are satisfied
that her present system is the only one
possible for the United Kingdom.
feet on a wagon road grade and will cost
almost as much as would build a standard road and when the time comes for
transferring it into a wagon road a good
round sum will be necessary which
would equal building a new road. The
better idea would be to use the money
appropriated and build a proper wagon
road over Mission mountain and as fat
as possible reaching Bridge River, and
next season the road would be again
extended on to its destination. In the
meantime with a wagon road to Bridg*
river heavy freight and machinery taken
as far as Jack's Landing or that neighborhood, could be taken up the river
ever the ica or by boats which would be
a great lift.
The opening up of roads and trails to
this rich district is a very important
matter and should be carefully considered before any large eums are expended, so when the appropriation is
gone that the public may be able to have
value received for the expenditure.

In the British Household Cavalry, the
horses with broad foreheads learn their
drill more quickly than those with a
narrow frontal space. Every horse in the
British army is numbered and has a little history kept for it. The number is
branded upon the animal's hind feet—
the thousands of the near hind foot,
and the units, tens and hundreds on
the off hind foot. Thus the horse whose
number ie, say 8,354 will have an 8 on
his left hind foot and 354 on the right
foot.
_i The teamsters on the Lytton road
have formed a combine and have raised
the price of freight from Lytton to Li'-
looet to one and a quarter cent a pound.
Parties in town do not favor the raise
and it will also make a great difference
to bringing in large amounts of machinery which will undoubtedly be Drought
in in the spring. The main object of
building the Lytton road was to cheapen
freight rates and give Lillooet a shorter
road to the railway. The distance from
from Lytton to Lillooet is about forty-
seven miles and the freight Tate has
been since the opening of the road this
spring, one cent per pound. By the
Ashcroft road, sixty-three miles distance
the rate has been for years one and a
quarter cent per pound. According to
the teamsters they c'aim there is nothing in hauling freight for one cent as
they cannot pay expenses. They can
make two round trips a week very
easily and as far as we can learn the
merchants intend to pay tbe old rate of
one cent.

In a certain little coast town lives and
works a clergyman beloved for his good
deeds. From early morning till late at
night he is at the beck and call of his
parishioners, never complaining always
cheerful. His annual stipend is $200.
The summer visitors of this town last
year appreciating the the preacher's
gentleness and hard work, and noticing
his lack of material prosperity, clubbed
together and presented to him a pnrBe
$100. The good church fnlk, of course,
heard of it—and when it came time to
pay him his yearly salary they tendered
him $100 and a receipt to sign for $200!
"You have got the other hundred from
the summer people." they said. The
old man accepted the situation and is

Seng of the Wh«e nen.
(Rudvard Kipling's latest  poem, published
in the Bloemfoutein Friend, April 9.)
Now, this is the cup the White Men drank
When they go to right a wrong.
And that is the eupaf the Old Wo Id's hate-
Cruel and strained aud strong. v
We have drank that cup—and a bitter,  bitter
cup—
And tossed the .dregs away;
Put  well for the world, when the White Men
drank
To the dawn of tbe.White Man's day.
Now, this is the roa<l that the White Men trend
When they go to eleaaa land-
Iron under foot and Jevin overhead,
And the deep on either hand.
We have trod that road—and  a wet and windy
road—
Our chosen star for guide;
0, well for the world- when the  White  Men
tread
its highways side by side.
Now, this is the faith that the White Men hold
When they build their homes afar;
"Freedom for ourselves and-freedom for our
sons.
• And, failing freedom, War." .
We have proved our faith—bear Witness to our
faith-
And ours has been the pain,
Dear souls, for the world.-when- the White Men
join
To prove their faith again.

Keep A Cool Heed.
The Ferguson Eagle of a recent date
says: A prospector is prone to raise his
price at this stage of the game^-simp'ly
because a few buvers are in sight. The
Eagle has knowledge of one or two
cases where $1000 cash, three months
ago, would have bought a property for
which the owner now modestly demands
$50,000. Do these prospectors think
mining men are fools _r do they imagine
for one minute that a repetition of the
Rossland boom is on the tapis. The
Eagle does not and it hereby advises
the owners of mining.property to keep a
cool head, stick to the prices asked a
few weeks ago and when .you get a
reasonable chance to sell, or giveja work-
.. ing bond, accept it.. We have in sight
^ what we have  biien how:ling for for the
•^ past four years. Now do not let us be
so foolish as to discourage the prospective purchaser. ThiB certainly does not
apply to all prospectors. But a word to
the wise is sufficient.
For tbe Married flan.
The learned judges of the court of
special s< scions have decided that a man
has a perfect right to carry home "a
quiet jag." It may not, however, be
safd *o «ply too much on this ruling.
Wives in sueh matters seem to nave so
little respect for the judgement of the
bench.—New York Herald.
A New York news item states that a
prominent lady of that city kneads
douitii with her gloves on. There is
nothing enarkable about that. We
need dough with our boots on and need
it with our pants on; and if some of the
many indebted to this offi e do not call
iu soon and settle, we will need dough
*ith neither pants nor loots on.—Ex.
A member of Lord Roberts' staff, who
is now with Sir F. Oarrington, in
Rhodesia save of the colonial troops in a
recent letter: "The Australians are
very fine fellows indeed, but the Canadians aie the best ljt in every way I
have ever seen"
'I  don't care a hang, remarked  Earl
Li Hun.' Chang,
"How much they may talk about me;
But I wish they would try to stop  calling it 'Lie,'
And pronounce the first syllable 'Lee."
The provincial voters' list will be used
in the federal elections in October. It
too late for those whose names are not
on the list to have them enrolled for the
contest. •	
"Robert, dear, how do vou suppose
those dizens and dozens of empty bottles
ever got into the cellar?"
"Why, I don't know my dear. I
never bought an empty bottle in my
life."
"The evidence," said the judge,
'shows that you threw a stone at this
;man."
"Sure," replied Mrs. O'Connor, "an'
the looks av the man shows more than
t tot, yer honor. It shows that Oi hit
him."
Said  that  cunning  old fox,  Li  Hung
Chang,
•'These foreigners give me a pang..
It's religion tbey die for,
And conquest they sigh for,
On the banks of the Yangtse Kiaug."
