lOOD WEEK IN
LILLOOET REALITY
JA marked increase in the
timandi'or Lillooet reality
las shown this week.   This
fate of activity started early
id throughout the week the
itos   have    been    doing
fouble   shifts bringing   in
jind holders and prospective
westors.   The hotels have
[een bordering on capacity
Business and  in the lobbies
|he general topic of conversation is land, land values,
yater rights, etc.     Several
leals were closed  up, and
there   were   several   more
started   that  should swell
Inext  weeks'   list of sales.
[There was the  usual heavy
[demand for ranches, and a
(decided increase in the num-
Iber of inquiries for town pro
I perty.
The most important transfer of the week was the closing up of the deal for the Joe
Copeland ranch, about two
miles down the river from
town. This place is com-
I prised of about 80 acres and
is seated on one of the best
f benches on the Fraser. The
names of the purchaser! has
not been made public in Lillooet, but it was understood
that' the consideration was
in the neighborhood of $10,-
000. In town, Artie Phair
purchased the lots directly
behind the C. A.. Phair store
property from Sing Lung.
E. S. Peters sold to Dr.
Clarke a 20 foot strip on the
east side of the old butcher
shop for $30 a foot or £$600.
Dr. Clarke will start the con
struction of a store building
at once and when completed
will open up in the drug business. J. N. Cran has practically closed a deal for the
sale of the Dave Coughlan
property in the west end of
town. This property Mr.
Cran but recently acquired
and is now said to be turning
it over at a very good profit.
SS. BRITTANIA
CHANGES HANDS
Walter Cox and Alex Phair
this week purchased the SS.
Brittania and hereafter will
be known locally as "chief"
and "captain." It is said
that the price paid was in
the neighborhood of $2000.
The new owners will put extensive repairs on the boat
and have her in condition for
the heavy traffic that is expected to go over the lakes
into the Pemberton country
this year, and for the rush
into the Bridge River mining
section. F. H. Kinder, former owner, will now devote
his time developing his mining interests in this section.
WORK STARTS ON
BRIDGE RIVER ROAD
Road Superintendent J. S.
Bell with a crew of men
left last Monday to start the
season's work on the Bridge
River road. There are at
present about 20 men in the
crew and they will be employed in cleaning out the
"finished part of the road,
but as soon as possible will
be put on to rush to completion unfinished stretch to
the mines. This crew is under the foremanship of Alex
McLeod and will be increased
in number as rapidly as possible. The crew now under
Foreman Jones, now working on the Ashcroft road,
will also be moved to the
Bridge River road in the
near future.
Mr. J. Vivian is registered at the Victoria from Lytton. He is a sign painter by
occupation and has come to
Lillooet to open up in this
business. He has now in
course of preparation several
neat and attractive signs for
local business firms.    .
WILL SURVEY PIONEER
WORK STARTS AT LORNE
E. H. Leslie, representing
P. H. Booth, the Vancouver engineer, with a
party of surveyors are registered at the Victoria. They
will leave on Monday for the
Bridge River section where
they will be employed for
some time surveying several
mineral claims, including the
Pioneer group, one of the
well known properties ch
Cadwalladar Creek. Mr.
Booth is expected to arrive
in Lillooet some time next
week to size up the situation
with the view of opening a
permanent office here.
WORKING ON
SETON LAKE
W. Haylmore is employed
these days doing development work on the Seton Lake
mineral claims belonging to
J. Dunlop. Considerable
work has already been done
on this property, one tunnel
having been driven 380 feet.
Assays prove the ore to be of
importance and with its loca
tion near the proposed railway line it is one of the good
base ore propositions that
are to be found in this district.
Carpenters are busy remodeling ihs blacksmith
shop. The shop will be moved
into the basement and the
upper part will be converted
into a garage for the accommodation of the numerous
automobiles that are now
running into Lillooet.
Messrs. Ledgerwood and
Arthur of the Seton Lake
Hatchery left this week fcr
Bridge River to start operations at the new trout hatchery on Fish Lake.
Dan Hurley will leave
early next week for the
Lome mine to make all arrangements for the season's
run at that property. Already the advance guard of
th*-. ;rew have gone in and
as'gouu -as Mr. Hurley returns from this trip mere
men will be sent to the mine
for it is the intention of the
owners to make this one of
the largest years in output
in the history of the property. The Lome is generally
conieded to be one ©f the
most promising properties on
Cadwallader Creek and several experts have pronoiux-
ed it one of the best propositions in the province. Last
year from a short mill run
nearly $8000 was taken from
the plates and experiments
with the concentrates by
means of a blanket showed
assays running high, so in
consequence, the company
will install concentrating
machinery as soon as the
wagon road is completed to
the mine.
PAVILION PARAGRAPHS
S. D. Trethewey of Chilli-
wack was a Lillooet visitor
this week.
R. H. Carson arrived on
Monday and left on Tuesday
for Empire Valley and up-
country parts.
D. J. Stewart is expected
home this week.
Arthur Harmon, an old-
timer of Pavilion, has purchased a 60-horse power auto
which he will put on the Can
boo road.
J. B. Bryson is seeding on

A Good Move
The movement now on
foot in Vancouver to organize a mining men's club is an
excellent idea and is something that has long been
needed to place Vancouver
where she belongs as the
center of miring development in British Columbia
The club will become a clearing house for the interchange of opinions and information and perhaps for
the financing of worthy undertakings that would otherwise go undeveloped for the
lack of a few dollars and a
little interest. The social
advantages of such an organization are not to be over
looked. It is intended if the
proposal meets with favor
to engage quarters large and
commodious so that mining-
men of the province will, be
able to make the club their
headquarters while in that
town.   •
TRI-WEEKLY SERVICE
Notices were posted in Lil
looet this week calling for
tenders for the mail contract
between Lytton and Lillooet.
Two separate tenders were
called for; one for the present semi-weekly service between the two places, and
the other for a tri-weekly
schedule to arrive in Lillooetv
on Tuesday, Thursday and
Saturday of each week. This
place is growing more and
more in need of a more frequent mail service and the
tri-weekly delivery will be a
great convenience.
BUSY WEEK
This week proved a busy
one for the autos on the road
between Lytton and Lillooet
as there was a noticeable
increase in the passenger
traffic between the two
places. The majority of the
new arrivals were parties
coming in to look over the
possibilities here or those already interested in mines or
lands in this section. \
NIGHT LETTERGRAMS
Mr. S. A. Mcfarlane, local
operator for the government
telegraph service, has been
notified that starting the first
of this month a night lettergram service was placed at
the disposal of the public
which will enable patrons
to send a 50-word message
by this night service at the
cost of a 10-word day telegram, with a rate of 1-5 of
the day charges for every
additional ten words above
the 50. These night lettergrams can be handed in at
any time during the day,
but must be in the operators
hands in ample time to permit theirbeing sent the same
day they are handed in. In
a place like Lillooet where
there is no night operator
and where there is some uncertainty of making immediate connections lettergrams
should be handed into the
office at an early hour as is
possible; if the message is
received too late it may not
be possible to get it through
before closing time at eight
o'clock, j A night lettergram
will be delivered to the party it is addrtssed to on the
following morning.
tti
MAIL SERVICE
J. Birch, the new postmas
ter at North Fork or Moha,
as it is now known, came in
last Tuesday and returned on
Wednesday. This was the
first trip on the new monthly mail service which was recently granted to this progressive farming and mining
settlement. The schedule
calls for mail delivery on tlie
sacond Wednesday of every
month.

EARLY SEASON
Lillooet, after an exceedingly mild winter, is now enjoying an early spring and
already the apricot trees and
other early fruits are out in
blossom. The hills have
started to take on a decidedly green hue and the trees
are leafing out rapidly. Reports from over the district
are to the same effect and it
is stated that on Bridge
River the grass has already
reached considerable height.

PLENTY OF ROOM
FOR PROSPECTORS
There is plenty of room in
Lillooet district for prospectors.    Though mining has
been one of the chief occupations in this section for years
the   operations have  been
confined to limited areas and
there are miles  ofunpros-
pected territory awating the
ring of the prospectors pick.
Lillooet   district   embraces
10,300,000 acres and in this
vast area there is scarcely a
stream from   which colors
cannot be panned or a locality that does not   indicate
metalliferous   deposits    of
some character.   The widely
separated locations   of the
different  propositions  now
being developed is prooi of
the extensive area included
in the mineral bearing zone.
Between Lytton and Lillooet
there are promising claims
of base ores and a large un-
prospected field. On Cayoosh
Creek near the town of Lillooet are placer propositions
that are making good.     On
north side of Seton lake  a
contact can be seen extending for some miles between
a coarse   grained   granite
above and a dark   colored,
fine grained eruptive rock below.   Along this line of contact a fine grained, massive
sulphide ore is found  and
some claims have been located.   One   tunnel has been
driven some 380 feet and assay returns prove the ore of
great importance,   carrying
gold and a small proportion
of silver.   McGillivray creek
on Anderson Lake has some
promising properties and has
been well prospected in the
immediate locality.   One of
the properties on this creek
has been quite extensively
developed  and   has a 10-
stamp mill. The Blackwater
district   in the  Pemberton
country has large deposits of
copper-gold and has bright
prospects.     North Fork, a
tributary of Bridge River,
also has excellent base ore
propositions and there are
numerous placer claims  on
this creek.   On Watson Bar
Creek, 45 miles from Lillooet
up the Fraser, a promising
strike was made last fall.
Bridge River, now the center
of attraction among mining
men,   has been prospected
1     for several years but every
year some new find is recorded so there are still opportun
ities   with this free-milling
belt for prospectors to operate.
But the mecca in Lillooet
district for incoming prospectors is the vaststretches that
lay between these widely
separated scenes of operations. Hunters and others
who have had occasion to
penatrate these isolated
places bring back reports of
mineralized indications in
manyportions and it is stated
that in many instances
contacts can be traced for
many miles.
When the railroad is completed through the district
there will be not be the old
drawback of "lack of transportation" to contend with
and to the prospector who
makes a strike and opens up
his property in a conscientious manner there should be
a ready sale as investors are
already taking a lively interest in Lillooet's mining opportunities.
BACK TO THE HILLS
Joe Shuster,   Tommy Alford and  Pearl Mays were
passengers     on    Monday's
boat bound for Bridge River.
The two former were Lillooet  visitors   for   several
weeks transacting business
and return to the Gun Creek
ranch to make preparations
to accommodate this season's
rush into the mining section
at   that   popular stopping
place.    Tommy Alford will
return to Lillooet next week
and from here will start on
an extended trip through the
northern country.    Joe has
made arrangements  to fur-
the mines and road  camps
with beef this season and
will be down about the first
of May to drive in a bunch
of beef cattle which he purchased during his recent visit
Pearl announced his intention of playing the role of
mighty hunter for some time
before he settles  down to
the  season's    work.    His
quest is a big grizzly that
has been reported about that
section for some time.
Mark Eagleson, boniface
of Lillooet has been in the
city for the last few days and
is returning to his home in
the gold-cattle country short
ly. He says business is good
in Lillooet and predicts a
great boom for the Bridge
river section during the next
twelve months. —Vancouver

Lillooet District
Now that Lillooet is forging into the limelight a few
lines regarding its past
should not be out of place.
The town of Lillooet as
most of our local readers are
aware, is one of the oldest
settlements on the mainland
of British Columbia. In saying this of course, we do not
refer to the Hudson Bay
forts. These forts were not
settlements in the proper
sense of the term, but were
merely trading posts for the
purpose of bartering supplies
with the Indians for furs.
The Hudson Bay company
did not encourage settlement. In fact it was not its
policy to do so, as settlement
tended to diminish the supply
of furs. In 1858 in consequence of the discovery of
gold on the Fraser, a large
rush of miners took place.
In a short time a large camp
sprang up at Lillooet, there
being fully 5000 inhabitants
here and in its companion
camp on the opposite side of
the Fraser, called Parsonville
In the course of a couple of
years a large quantity of gold
was washed from the
gravel in the numerous
benches round Lillooet. Then
came the discovery of the
rich diggings in Cariboo. An
exodus of white miners took
place; Parsonville was completely deserted and Lillooet
probably would also have
ceased to exist but for the
fact that that the route from
the coast to Cariboo passed
through it. The route then
was via Harrison lake, up
the Lillooet river, over Anderson and Seton lakes to
Lillooet and thence by the
road over Pavilion mountain
to the Cariboo gold fields.
Lillooet's chief importance
then was a stopping place on
the road to Cariboo. This
route however was not popular in consequence of the
many changes from wagon to
boat and vice versa, and in
the early sixties a wagon
road was made from Yale,
the head of steamboat navigation on the Fraser, up the
Fraser and Thompson rivers
which road crossed the
Thompson at Spences Bridge
The town of Ashcroft did not
come into existence until the
opening of the Canadian
Pacific railway in 1889 and
was of no importance until
by theconstruction of abridge
across the Thompson it become the gateway to the
Cariboo.
After the construction of
the Yale-Cariboo road Lillooet was very dull and there
were scarcely any residents
except a few storekeepers
and some Chinese miners
who continued to wash the
ground that the white men
had abandoned. Previous to
the construction of the Canadian Pacific no attention was
paid to quartz mining in the
province. After the road
went throughnumerous prospectors found th9ir way into
this section and strikes oi:
more or less importance were
frequently recorded until '98
when a rich strike created a
small sized boom. About the
time this excitement was dy-
ing out Bridge River started
to show up good and since
that time has enjoyed a substantial steady era of development which has served o
prove the section's re 1
worth. This development, it
is true, was not pushed on an
elaborate scaleas inadequa' e
transportation facilities prevented capitalists from investing heavily. However,
this work done by local parties served to prove the section's resourses and last year
saw several properties
change hands and extensive
development work start.
With these capitalists commencing to take an interest
in the camp and with the advent of prospectors and mining men in our midst with
strong mining companies be-
