§2 PER YEAR
BROKEN HILL NINES.
"Lying on the main contact
between the coast granite and
the interior sedimentaries, the
Broken Hill mining property presents features of unusual interest
to the mining expert, and I am
of the opinion that the contact
lead on which the Broken Hill
seems to have the crucial location
will, with proper development
and management, develop into
one of the greatest producers in
the province."
Seen at the Connaught hotel
Mr. F. J. Crossland, M. E., made
the above statement to the Sun,
and added that while the property had been looked upon as a
copper prospect, it would, in his
estimation, develop into a gold
mine. He based this assertion
on the striking similarity between
the Broken Hill ore and that produced by the Nickle Plate mine,
the best gold mine in British Columbia at the present time.
The Broken Hill group lies west
of Lillooet, and is owned by Mr.
J. Hunt. Mr. Crossland's visit
to the property was to verify the
reports made by three eminent
mining engineers, Messrs. Dunn,
Thomas and Guernsey. The last
examination checked the three
others in every particular. Mr.
Crossland found the ore body to
average over 90 feet in width,
and with values in gold, silver
and copper, which in comparison
with the ore treated at a profit by
the Granby and B. C. Copper
companies, leave no doubt as to
the ultimate successful operation
of this property.
BEFORE THE BEAK.
On Saturday Mike Gorman was
convicted on. the charge of supplying intoxicants to Indians, and
was sentenced to two months'

paid $10 for the affliction.
On Monday it was found that
a gentleman with a silvery name
had forfeited his bail.
Another white man paid $5 for
the privilege of being drunk.
An Indian named Michael was
fined $25 for having whisky in
his possession.

said to have been attending services.
The Ashcroft people have collected a substantial sum for their
fall races, which will take place
on the 20th inst. Some good

Considerable freight stealing
has been going on at Lytton, and
the police of that town have succeeded in capturing some of the
culprits.
Preliminary work has been
started on the construction of a
sawmill at the Long Portage,
the product of which will be used
by the railroad company.
J. Swanson, of the Anderson
lake sawmill, has an extensive
contract for cutting cribbing timber for J. B. Wall, along the P.
G. E. line of construction.
J. T. Mellott has a contract for
supplying the P. G. E. railway
with 15000 linear feet of 65 foot
piles. Thay will be used in construction of the Fraser river
bridge just below this town.
Mr. J. Keary arrived from
Cadwallader Creek a few days
ago, where he had been engaged
in assessment work on several
mineral claims. He reports everything prosperous in that district.
W. H. Burton, of the Fountain
ranch, was in town the other day
and reports fine crops in his district. Railroad construction being
at their doors, farmers have a
ready market for their produce.
A. F. Loring, of Lytton, who
has had seven horses missing
from his ranch since last June,
found them in the mountains
between the half-way house and
the Thompson. They had evidently been driven there, and
practically fenced in, as timber
had been fallen across the only
points of egress.
Now that the evenings are
getting chilly, the poolrooms of
the town are doing a better business. These resorts are a credit
to the little town. They are all
well conducted, and a pleasant
evening can be spent in anj of
them.
Dominion officer Daunt was in
town Wednesday. Since being
appointed to the staff of the Indian Agency Mr. Daunt has made
it extremely lively for the gentlemen engaged in supplying liquor
to Indians. He is the right man
for that job.
Workmen are scarce in Lillooet,
so much so that a couple of prisoners have had to be employed
to finish a little job in town.
This is a good move; it also enables the prisoner to have a
dollar or two when his time expires, and not having to be thrust
on the public, as is too often the
case, without a cent in his jeans.
Some railroad men along the
P.G.E. line of construction, some
30 miles this side of Newport,
claim to have discovered a second
Shushanna. To back up their j
statements they are exhibiting a
small box full of quartz and gold
which is said to have been picked
up from the spot where they intend  to locate for the winter.
Capt. W. M. J. Martin and
Lieut. H. P. Pilcher arrived in
town Wednesday, on a big game
hunting expedition. They are
accompanied by Mrs. Pilcher, who
has decided to take a hand in the
sport. Frank Gott, the old reliable, is in charge of the party,
which is a pretty good guarantee
of a successful trip. They left
for the North Fork of Bridge
river yesterday afternoon.
Lillooet's contribution to the
Clinton jury system is composed
as follows: D. McDonald, grand
juror; C. D. Wray, Alex. McLeod,
J. G. Y. Burkholder, W. Duguid,
J. Dunlop, W. Maclntyre, Moses
Foster, V. Keeley, and F. Macdonald, petit jurors. This fall
the criminal docket is light, there
being but four criminal cases to
be tried.
Merton Smith, of Vancouver,
returned from the Bridge river
country last Tuesday. Usually
a man visiting the upper Bridge
is supposed to be on mining business. Mr. Smith says that he
knows little about rock, but
claims to know considerable about
agriculture, and states that there
is land in the Bridge river valley
fully equal to the famous Fraser
delta. The whole valley is a silt
deposit, is the verdict of Mr.
Smith.
The telephone line between
this town and Lytton, was completed at 6 o'clock last evening.
Some time this morning there
will be a 'phone box installed,
when we shall, for the first time,
hear a voice from Lytton. Mr. S.
A. Macfarlane has certainly
earned the gratitude of both
towns for the prompt manner in
which he secured the necessary
funds and the energetic system
in which he applied them to the
work of construction. The line
is admitted by all who have seen
it, to be a substantial piece of
work.     	
The mining town of Nome, in
the Behring Straits, has been almost obliterated by a storm.

ISSUED EVERY FRIDAY.
OCTOBER 10, 1913.
Mr. F. C. Campbell, government agent atClinton, has
been appointed government
agent at New Westminster.
It sometimes happens that
when men leave our little
burg for the Royal City, it is
for their sins. In Mr. Campbell's case it is a good promotion, and well does he deserve it. Before coming to
the Lillooet district he was
in the government employ in
the Boundary country, acting
there as gold commissioner
and mining recorder, and left
there with the respect of all
who knew him. Mr. Camp-
ball's admirable business capacity and urbanity to all
who have had the pleasure
of doing business with him
will always be remembered j
by the people of Lillooet district. We understand that
Mr. Lunn, of the 150-Mile
House, has been appointed
to act as government agent
at Clinton.
The old Cariboo trail in the
vicinity of the upper Lillooet
lake,  once the scene of picturesque activities in the sixties, is to be opened up again.
The brush is to be cut out
and the bridges rebuilt.   A
crew has gone to open up the
trail all the way from the
foot of the lake to the Pacific
Great Eastern railway right-
of-way. The purpose of again
opening up this trail is to
assist in the work of fire-
fighting in the forests adjacent to the railway right-
of-way. It will be made wide
enough to permit of the firefighters riding on horseback
to the danger zone. This precaution is made necessary by
the building of the line and
the  added risk of a forest
fire originating in a spark
from a locomotive. The trail
will be the last work to be
commenced by the forest fire
protection service this year.
The old Cariboo trail fell into
disuse when the wagon-road
was built through the Yale
canyon, and the Indians preferring to navigate the lake
in their canoes to using the
trail in the timber, it is now
covered with a forest growth
of almost fifty years.
The policy of making the
forest protection service a
permanent body, which is
being introduced by Hon. W.
R. Ross, minister of lands, is
one that should receive general approval. One of British
Columbia's greatest assets is
her forest wealth. It is an
asset, however, which carelessness and lack of attention
to fire prevention would soon
dissipate. That this fact is
thoroughly realized by Mr.
Ross is shown by his record
as minister of lands. During
the last few years he has introduced modern methods
and ideas into the administration of the province's forest wealth. The chief danger to standing timber is that
of fire. In past years British
Columbia has lost millions I
upon millions from forest
fires. To the elimination of
this waste Mr. Ross has devoted his best energies. He
has undertaken the building
up of an efficient fire protection service. To make this a
success, however, permanency is necessary. To secure
this has not been found altogether easy, the difficulty
Being to find winter employment. Mr. Ross, however,
now proposes to get over the
difficulty by giving the men
engaged in forest protection
service in summer a chance
to continue their work for
the department during the
winter in the building of
trails and telephone lines for
the purpose of increasing the
effectiveness of the staff during the season of danger.
The idea appears eminently
practical. If in this way Mr.
Ross is able to give permanence to the forest protection
service he will have accomplished something distinctly
in the interests of British
Columbia.—Ex.
THE MAN WHO LAUGHS.
•********AA^^*^^^^^^*^^^^^*^^*^^^^^*^^*^^A?
The man whose ha! ha! reaches
from one end of the street to the
other may be the same fellow who
scolded his wife and spanked the
baby before he got his breakfast,
but  his   laughter   is   only  the
cradle of thorns under the pot.
The man who spends his laughter through   his life—before  a
late breakfast; when he misses
the train,   when his wife goes
visiting and he has to eat a cold
supper; the man who can laugh
when he finds a button off his
shirt, when the furnace goes out
at night and the twins come down
with   the   measles at the same
time—he's   the  fellow   that  is
needed. He never tells his neighbor to have faith; somehow he
puts faith into him.   He delivers
no homilies; somehow the sight
of  his   face, the sound of his
happy voice and the light of his
daily blessed life, carry conviction
that words have no power to give.
The blues flee before him as the
fog before the wind.     He comes
into his own home like a flood of
sunshine   over   a   meadow   of
blooming   buttercups,   and   his
wife and children bloom like June
roses. His home is redolent with
sympathy and love.    The neigh-
j borhood is better for his life, and
I somebody will learn from him
that laughter is better than tears.
The world needs this man.   Why
are there so few of them?  Can
he be e'/olved?   Why is he not in
every house,  turning rain into
sunshine and winter into summer
all the year around until life is a
perpetual season of joy?—Ledge.

THE CARIBOO MAIL CONTRACT.
The Cariboo mail contract is
now in the hands of a newly-
formed company called the Imperial Express, the change taking place a few days ago. For
a great many years the British
Columbia Express Co. h&ve held
this contract, and given every
satisfaction as far as delivery of
mails is concerned; they have the
most extensively equipped stage
lines in the west, and are said to
have over 600 horses on their
main and branch lines. Being
so well established in the business, it is a surprise to many that
they have allowed the mail contract to fall into other hands.
The new company, to be known
as the Imperial Express, will
have headquarters at Ashcroft.
The members of the company are
all British Columbians, and are
men thoroughly familiar with the
nature of the work before them.
Their contract will extend over
two years. Besides the mail, a
general express and passenger
business will be inaugurated.
Sub-contracts have been let for
deli very of mail to Quesnel Forks,
Dog Creek, Clinton, Lillooet, and
other side lines.
In the meantime the B. C. Express Co. will not be idle. They
will continue on in the passenger
and express business, and with
a corporation like the Imperial
Express as competitors, some
keen rivalry may be witnessed
from now on.
PLATINUM AND ITS USES.
Owing to the very small amount
of placer mining done on the
creeks flowing into Bridge river,
very little platinum is seen here,
nowadays, although in the olden
times specimens of platinum
were frequently brought to Lillooet, taken from the sluice boxes
in the course of the cleanup.
Platinum is a soft, white, lustrous metal; the commercial variety is somewhat hardened by
containing a small percentage of
iridium. It is very heavy, malleable, ductile and tenacious, and
only melts at a very high temperature. It is easily welded at
a red heat and is particularly
valuable in having a co-efficient
of expansion approximately equal
to that of glass, thus allowing
platinum wires to be sealed into
glass vessels without the latter
cracking on cooling, and thus,
though, a comparatively inferior
conductor of electricity, it permits the manufacture of innumerable pieces of apparatus, including incandescent lamps, in
which such a joint is essential.
It does not oxidize in air at any
temperature. Platinum, particularly when in the spongy form
prepared by heating some of its

compounds, has a remarkable
property in bringing about the
union of oxygen and hydrogen;
thus, a jet of hydrogen is ignited
if a bit of platinum sponge is
held in it—a principle made use
of in Dobereiner's lamps, and in
self-lighting gas burners.
Platinum is found in Russia,
also in California and Oregon.
About 200 ounces were marketed
in 1904 from the gold placer
mines of these two States. It is
worth about $19 per ounce in
crude form.
A BAD SHAKING UP.
J. M. Walker, of Ohio, who
has lately been on some mining
business in the vicinity of Alexander creek, had a narrow escape
from serious injury last week.
Coming down Mission mountain
in a light rig driven by an Indian,
something went wrong with the
harness, causing the horses to
bolt. Mr. Indian promptly jumped, leavmg Walker in full charge.
This he did not like, and seeing
no chance of stopping the runaways, concluded to follow the
driver's example. In this he was
not so successful, as he was
thrown against the steep embankment and rebounded back
under the wagon, being dragged
over a hundred feet, when fortunately the wagon pole struck
something, stopping the horses
and giving the old gentleman a
chance to get clear. He found
that a couple of broken ribs, a
bruise on his back that looks like
a mule kick, and several smaller
bumps, was all the damage done
to himself. He is somewhat of a
philosopher, however, and thinks
he is a lucky man to escape so
lightly.	
As meats increase in price the
composition of hash becomes a
greater mystery than ever.
