Valentine Dance—Wednesday Feb'y 14
Premier Lloyd George said not long ago
"Let us Sing". And the Empire is
Singing—The War Song.
And on the anniversary of St.
Valentine,* February 14 the Women and Girls of Lillooet say "Let
us Dance"—So let it be.—Dance!
John Bull and Britannia can still
sing and dance for they have reason to do so more today than ever
before in their history. For are
they not in the forefront of World
Progress? Do they not today lead
in the fight against the Horrible
Hun and his devilry? And if the
Sons of the Empire who have paid
the supreme sacrifice have knowledge of our doings, can it be imagined that they wish us to hinder
the expression of our brighter natures. A thousand times No! They
are not dead, but live in the deeds
they have done the trail they have
blazed and the everlasting nobility of the principles for whichthey
willingly threw off their mortal
shell. They live and say to us
with our great ieader "Sing and
Sing again." But all are not singers. Many express themselves
by the rhythmic dance.
Let the Women's Patriotic
League, by whom this is being arranged, feel encouraged by a
large attendance for they have
knitted many pairs of sox and
made other comforts for soldiers,
which will be on view in Mr. D.
Hurley's store, Come along and
buy your ticket at the Post Office,
at Santini Store or at the',Box "Office (Santini Hall) on night of dance
at from 7.30 to 8.30 p.m. Tickets
are only 50c. for adults, and 25c.
for children over twelve years of
age. Price includes refreshments.
Those who do not dance will
find card tables etc. for their use
in the small hall.
This is entirely the enterprise
of the women of the town. Sup-
portit"Boys.
Mr. and Mrs. Miller have gone
to reside at East Lillooet.
S.  A. Macfarlane arrived  in
. town recently.
Word was received this week
from the Front stating that Teddy
Holt and Frank Gott are on the
way home.
A telephone has been installed
in the Lillooet Hospital.
, Wm. Elliott has sold his interest in the Kirby-Elliott pool hall
to Cliff Baldwin.
Fishing is good in the Lake
creek. A record eatch is reported by the local boys.
Wm. Durban is in town from
his ran ch. on the Short Portage.
Everything is looking prosperous
in this section-.
The P.G.E. train was delayed
Monday by ■ a   gravel  slide at
.  Seton Lake.   Instead of arriving
at 8  p.m.   Monday,  it arrived
about 2.30 a.m. Tuesday.
A party of men arrived in town
Tuesday enroute for the Pioneer
mine. Mr. Ferguson is expected
here in the course of a few days.
It is anticipated that with the
coming of spring there will be
ushered Jn a period of mining
activity in the Lillooet Division
that will do much to place us in
i a prominent position in mining
Circles Few undeveloped mineral sections have the showing-that
are to be found here, and developement on several properties
show that ore bodies hold remarkably well to depth.
THE LILLOOET MINING DIVISION
The Following Report Appeared in the Preliminary Review and Estimate of Mineral Production for 1916
By Wm. Fleet Robertson, Provincial Mineralogist
Speaking of Lode Gold the report states :—
"One encouraging feature is a large increase from Lillooet Division, which produced 2,625 oz. as compared with 31 oz. in 1915."
The Cadwallader Creek camp
is the most important part of the
Lillooet Mining Division, and an
important productive lode-gold
mining camp. It is by the present route, via Mission mountain,
about fifty-five miles from the
Pacific Great Eastern railway.
A good auto-road connects the
camp with Mission station, which
is about 10 miles from the town
of Lillooet.
During 1916 there has been
more activity on Cadwallader
creek than during previous years,
and the production has been larger. Three mills have been running continuously from early in
June until November.
The Lorne, Pioneer, Coronation, and Wayside "mines have
each been actively operated, and
the three first mentioned have
produced satisfactory returns.
The Lorne group have been
operated by A. F. Noel, of Lilloo-
et^jmder a bond from the owners, the Lorne Amalgamated Mining Company. He has had about
ten or twelve men at work, and
haa- continued the main adit
which was started some years
ago, until he has reached an ore-
body at about 250 feet below the
upper workings, from which ore
was mined and treated in an ar-
rasta in 1900. In future this adit,
which is a crosscut about 400 ft.
long, will be the main haulage-
way from the mine-workings to
the 5-stamp mill, the portal of
the adit being at a slightly higher elevation than the grizzly and
ore-bin at the mill. The mill was
operated from June untU-Novem-
ber, and was only closed down
because of breaking the camshaft,
otherwise Mr. Noel intended to
attempt to continue operations
during the winter and establish
a record. The cost of milling is
reliably reported to have been as
low as $4.60 a ton, and the average gold content saved from the
ore somewhere about $10 a ton.
The Coronation mine has been
worked by B. Perry under a lease
from the Coronation Mining Company, but near the end of the
year the Company made a deal
with George Ayland, the managing director of the Standard Silver Lead Mining Company, who
has taken over the property and
will operate it in future. The
work done during the past season
was principally confined to further development on the Countless mineral claim, one of the
group contained in the property.
The development-work is reported to show an increase in the
width of the vein in the drift
from about 8 inches to nearly 5
feet of ore that assays high in
gold, An assay from the narrow
part of the vein is reported by
Mr. Aylard as showing 4 oz. gold
to the ton.
The 10-stamp mill at the Coronation mine operated only a portion of last season, treating ore
from the old stopes on the Little
Joe mineral claim of the group,
also ore sorted from the old
dumps, all of which is reported
to have yielded fair returns, especially considering that the old
plates in the mill were in poor
condition, and consequently much
\jC9ld was lost in the tailings,
The Pioneer Mining Company
operated the Pioneer mine continuously during 1916. A sawmill, run by steam-power, capacity 1,000 feet b.m.; a Lane mill,
capacity about 15 tons a day; a
rock-crusher; air-compressor, capacity six drills; hoist and pump,
driven from the air-compressor,
were installed and operated continuously from June last. The
mill, compressor, and rock-crusher are run by water - power,
developed by a dam and flume a
quarter of a mile long. An upraise was made from the old adit
level to the service, and connected with a winze from the adit
level sunk to a depth of 100 feet,
with stations opened at 50-ft and
100-foot levels below the adit,
Drifts were driven to the east
and west for about 80 feet on each
level and stopes opened. About
1,500 tons of ore was mined and
milled during the season. The
yield is reported as very satisfactory, especially from the lower
on page 3
NEAR AND FAR
Canada is rapidly becoming one
of the greatest commercial countries of the world. Its trade with
the United States durincr the 12
months ending in August last
amounted to more than a billion
and a half dollars. The Dominion
purchased from Great Britain last
year goods to the value of $111,-
584,000 and sold it $646,504,000
worth. It bought from the U.S.
during the same period goods
valued at $492,483,000 and sold to
the United States $247,984,000
worth. Its balance with Great
Britain was $534,920,000, while
with the United States the adverse balance was $244,499,000.
Canada's exports of wheat and
flour increased from $116,000,000
the previous year to $360,000,000.
The Grand Trnnk officials have
received a message from Mr. A.
E. Disney, who is agent on the
North Pacific at Seattle fora number of transportation companies,
stating that he had received a
telegram from the Dominion minister of the interior to the effect
that it would be necessary for all
passengers to be supplied in future with a regular passport obtained from the state department
at Ottawa. Letters of identification and other certificates would
not  now be accepted.
Paris, Jan. 6—A special Ha vas
despatch from the British front
in France, says :— General Sir
Douglas Haig today commands
the largest £rmy Great Britain

army in France on January 1 was
nearly two million men, completely trained and ready day or night
to receive orders from their com-
mander-in-cjiief.
This figure only refers to the
British forces in France, and is
exclusive of those employed in
the defence of Great Britain, Ireland^, India, Solonica, Egypt,
Mesopotamia and Africa.

car alone running over $8,000.
A shipment of 45 tons of ore
which was -made from the Monitor mine, Alberni canal, recently
to the Trail smelter, netted $50 a
ton, going nine per cent, copper.
Another shipment/ of low grade
ore will go forward shortly.
The gold production of the various districts is estimated to have
bten approximately as follows:—

which was located in the seventies, is to be re-opened.
Canada is producing two. new
minerals as a direct result of the
war, according to a statement
made by Dr. Adams, at a meeting of the commission on conservation. One is magnesium, which
is now being used to make star

THE  LILLOOET  PROSPECTOR
The Lillooet Prospector
Published in the Interest of Lillooet District.
A. E. LUDWIG, Manager.
FEB.  9, 1917.
MR. JOSEPH MAttTIN
Mr. Joseph Martin i&- a
very, interesting character,
and the announcement of his
withdrawal from the Liberal
canditure of Cariboo was a
pieceof news that once more
brought his name uppermost
on the wave of current things.
But this is only one of many
instances, for Mr. Martin's
z name is always coming up in
one way or another. His
familiar abreviated appellative of "Joe" means that he
has established a claim on
public notice.   In some cases
> it means that he has established a claim on public admiration, for there are people who think there is nobody
like him either as a lawyer
or a man. And in support
of this opinion they can adduce many substantial reasons. To hear "Joe" speak
at a political meeting is to
understand something of his
personal magnetism and his
power. Beginning in the
quietest and most suave of
ways, he puts his case before
his hearers with convincing
logic. In a calm and equable
voiee he arrays his arguments. We get a glimpse as
we listen to the ability which
has influenced juries and even judges. He does not tire
us. There is apparently nothing artificial or strained
about the manner in which
he enlarges on his subject.
And even when he gets to the
point of denouncing his political adversary, he does not
"tear a passion to tatters."
In his most acccusatory periods he does not foam at the
mouth, split his collar, or
wipe the perspiration from
his brow. In fact he does
not get half so an^ry and
declamatory as some of the
Dicks, Toms, or Harrys of
the political organizations.
Yet there is no doubt about
his hitting. He hits hard,
and his blows have all tfte
more power from the fact
that they are sometimes delivered with half a smile.
Sixty-four years of age,
and still at his prime or only
a little past it, Hon. Joseph
Martin (for at various times
he has held Cabinet rank both
in Manitoba and B.C. and
was once, for an hour or two,
premier) is a genuine son of
Canada. He was born in
1852 on a farm in Ontario
and there began his education. It was. continued at
the Michigan state Normal
school, and at the provincial
Normal school in Toronto,
for school-teaching was the
avenve into which his keen
' intellectual powers were first
directed. He had therefore
a good start, for farmers'
sons get a hold of the
earth that is obtainable in no
other way, and beginning
life among the people they
understand and know the
roots of our democracy. But
while young Martin was
teaching school, and teaching
it so effectively that some of
his old pupils still look back
at that period of his life with
full appreiation; he had his
eye on the profession that
was to be the main employment of his-life. He did not
have any university education beyond passing the exams, for the second year of
the Arts Course in Toronto.
He hung up his shingle as a
full fledged barrister in Manitoba in 1882, when Winnipeg was beginning to be
thought of a possible coming
city. He practiced his profession successfully at Portage la Prairie and in Winnipeg; and his first important
"strike" came when he was
appointed special counsel for
the C.P.R. in 1897.
But he had already begun to dabble in politics. It
was impossible that one of
such gilts, who stood head
and shoulders above those
around him, should not come
into notice, and he sat in the
local legislature for Portage
la Prairie from 1883 to 1892.
He was attorney general in
the Manitoba government
from 1888 to 1891. A portrait picture of the Greenway
Cabinet ,which hangs up in
the Legislative buildings in
Winnipeg, shows him as an
attractive looking young man
of 36, and displays that alertness of look which has always been one of the features of his personality.
But continuousness in, political affiliations has never
been a prominent characteristic in Mr. Martin's service
of his country in legislative
assemblies. He has remained
a Liberal, but he has had a
liking for displaying his Liberalism in different places.
He is like one of those dramatic entrepreneurs, who
having got hold of a good
"show" in London or New
York, feels that it will be a
good stroke of business to
take it through the provinces.
Consequently Mr. Martin,
having entertained his Manitoba audience, and incidentally done a good deal towards the triumphat return
of Sir Wilfred Laurier's forces to Ottawa it 1896, came
next before the political footlights in Britisn Columbia,
where in 1897 he opened a
law office.
Successful and eminent as
a lawyer, Mr. Martin had already been employed to argue the Manitoba Schools case
before the Privy Counsel in
London, years before. And
tbe fasination of London had
got hold of him. Brief experiences and defeats in connection with the B.C. Legis-
1 a t i o n having passed, he
moved to London and entered the British parliament as
member for East St. Pancras
in 1910. Since then as is
well known he has oscillated
between England and Vancouver and has been well-
pleased with both. For if
there is anything that the
Hon. Joseph Martin likes, it
is variety. Except for his
innate love of it, he might
have written his name higher on the scroll of political
fame,

feet of ore that was carried
for several feet east from the

The Golden Dream Mining
Company has been prospecting the gravel deposits on
the South d^Fork of Bridge
river below the dam, and
sluicing the material taken
from the pit in wl?ich bed
rock was struck at 21 feet.
G. P. Dam, the manager, installed an Empire drill early
in the season, but owing to
the boulders it was not a success. Later these operations
- were abandoned, and two
'scrapers, worked by water-
power from an overshot
wheel, were substituted and
worked satisfactorily. About
one third of the gravel taken
from the pit yielded between
35"^nd 40 cents to the cubic
square yard, saved in the
sluice-boxes.
The usual assessment work
was done on these mineral
claims in the camp that are
not yet Crown granted of
which there are not many,
&s most of the claims were
staked in 1897, 1898, and
189&, and the owners acquired Crown grants some years
ago.
The opening of the Pacific
Great Eastern Railway has
proved a great advantage to
the camps in the Lillooet
Mining Division, as previous
to that event the district was
so remote from rail transportation that the excessive
freight rates retarded progress.
Molybdenite Ore.— During
1916 a shipment of molybdenite ore was made from
mineral claims on Texas ck.
a tributary of the Fraser river that empties into it on the
west side about 12 miles Sth.
from Lillooet station, on the
P.G.E. Railway. The shipment contained nine tons" of
, molybdenite which carried 16
per cent molybdenite. The
operators of this property are
greatly handicaped because
of remoteness from transportation and rough trails
from the claims to the LiP
looet wagon road.        )

were shipped during 1916
from near the shore of Anderson lake, near the mouth
