flcGILLIVRAY   CREEK.
The Brett group of claims situated
about two miles from the mouth of McGillivray creek and which were hooded
to R. B. Skinner of Vancouver, a few
weeks ago, have been resold by him to a
Vancouver syndicate. Mr. W. Farrell
the representative of the syndicate with
their mining engineer visited the property last week and were well satisfied
with the prospects of the claims. The
work as arranged in the bond to Mr.
Skinner will be continued by the syndicate. Early next spring arrangements
will be made for the erection of a stamp
mill on the property. The work as far
as has been done by the Brett Bros has
showed up the property to better advantage and it is all that has been claimed. Free gold is visable and the ledge
is wide and continuous.
McGillivray has many advantageous
for making a good camp. Its accessa-
bility and its short distance to take supplies. The whole journey can be made
by water with the exception of one mile
portage.
_HA. Brett came down from the claims
Thureday evening and reports everything as looking fine. While clearing at
the mouth of the tunnel for a blacksmith
shop shop the ledge was stripped and
showed up about eighteen feet wide.
The tunnel is now in about forty-five
feet and the rock is keeping up to the
standard and improving considerably.
Dan Cameron is working on his claim
and has opened it up in several places
which shows up all right.
Work on the Rosamond and White
Rose claims adjoining the Brett group
p the creek, and owned by Dr. Poole
and J. H. Purdy at Vancouver, will commence shortly. The ledge has been
found on these claims continuing from
the Brett group and is equally as rich.
Near the mouth of the creek work is
being done on the St. Joseph and St.
John claims owned by A. St. G. Ham-
mersley of Vancouver.
J. N. Jensen with three men are working on some galena properties a few
miles from McGillivray creek on the
summit. Assays have been received
which give returns in gold and silver
over $20. Mr. Jensen is at present in
Lillooet getting supplies. He is well
satisfied with the property and will continue work with a few men for several
weeks yet.
The Pioneer Claim.
Mr. Hyde last week with a shovel took
out some very nice pieces of gold and
quartz, part of the tailings from the arrastra which were run into the creek,
not being ground at all.
The Pioneer is a good property and
has every indication of becoming one of
the best on the creek. The recent run
of the arrastra did not materialize as expected, the cause being on account of
not having practical men in charge of
the arrastra. H. Atwood after the last
run Bturted the arrastra up again for a
few hours and put through second class
rock and made a cleanup of about $20.
BRIGHT   PROSPECTS.
and at present is getting the necessary
information for it.
D. B. Hyde has secured an option on
the Pioneer claim on Cadwallader creek
owned by W. F. Allen and Harry Atwood. He has thorougly examined the
property and is well satisfied with it.
He will leave in a few days for New York j
where he has a company to take it up.
It will be a cash proposition and a sub-1
stantial figure is mentioned.     The com-j
Forty Thieves and Lome Groups.
Frank Oliver representing the B. A.
Corporation, with headquarters at Roes-
land, went up to Bridge River last week
with R. B. Skinner to look over the
Forty Thieves group which Mr. Skinner
has under bond. He was well pleased
with the group and will make his report
to his company and if satisfactory will
commence work at once on the property
on a large scale. . He also visited a
number of other properties and is well
pleased with the whole district. Mr.
Oliver and Mr. Sainner left town Thursday morning for Lytton and will then
proceed to Rossland Mr. Skinner expects
to be back here in a couple of weeks.
During his trip up Cadwallader Mr.
Skinner secured an option on the Lome
group of claims of which he expects to
close a deal shortly. In a six days run
of the arrastra at the Lome, $200 was
cleaned up, and good cleanups are being
made every other day now. The runs
are short as they do not wish to get stalled on the water and freeze the arrastra
up.	
The Benanza Group.
H. W. Harvey of Ashcroft and Ed. E.
Stuart, representing a Boston Syndicate arrived in town last Saturday evening by special stage and left next morning for the Benanza group of claims on
Cayoosh creek. Mr. Harvey returned
to town on Monday evening and left for
Ashcroft next morning. Mr. Stuart remained at the claims until Thursday
going over thtm thoroughly and inspecting all the work that has been done. He
is very favorably impressed with the
property and in all probability the syndicate which he represent will take over
the property, and if so well start work
as soon as possible next spring. Mr.
Stuart leaves on tomorrows stage for
Asheroftand will then proceed to Oregon
to look at some properties. He will
most likely return again in a few wTeeks
or next spring to look over the whole
district.
Mr. H.W. Harvey is one of the principal owners in the Bonanza group and
has stayed with it from the start.
Next year will be a busy season in the
Bridge   R ver  district.   The    Bend Or
company will take in a stamp-mill this
season on the ice and over the traiis and
will by next   season  have an equipped
plant for running the mine.   This will
all be done without a wagon road  into
district.   The Ida May will be   worked
all through the winter and  next spring
will consider   utilising   the   ore   taken
out.    1 he Ida May is a good   property
and the company owning it  will  work
it for all it is   north.   The   Lome  and
Pioneer claims both have arrastras and
rich rock, and as soon as spring opens up
these claims with the other   claims  on
Cadwallader will do active work.   The
Lome is at   present under   bond.   The
Forty Thieves group which is considered
to have the finest ledge in  the country
will be probably taken  up   by   another
company, and   whose  expert   recently
visited it,   will open   up   the property
further.   With all these properties  and
many others doing and making preparations for putting in machinery and shipping bullion, the outlook is very promising ffe_ the district.   On the South Fork
placer mines are making good pay right
along and will be  able   to   continue on
during the whole winter.
Tyauchton has also some fine looking
ledges and with the large amount of
assessment work done this season on
claims they show up to advantage and
will equal anything in the district.
McGillivray creek where the late strike
has been made is showing up wonderfully rich and is considered one of the finest
ledges in the country. About a dozen
men are at present work driving a tunnel under contract. The property is
under bond to good parties who intend
opening it up in.first class shape. McGillivray Creek has many advantages.
It is only about 35 miles from Lillooet
and is an all water route excepting the
portage between the two lakes, it can be
made easily in one day's travel. The
transporting machinery will be an easy
matter. Besides the discovery group
there are a number of other valuable
claims which all show up well. A number of men are also placer mining near
the mouth of the creek with good results.
The necessity of a  wagon  road   into
the Bridge River  is   beyond   doubt  as
the mines there have   been   developed
sufficient to prove their richness.   The
Bend'Or company will entail  consider
able expense and trouble in transporting
their machinery in, besides this company
there are numerous others which  would
put work on their claims.   If   there  is
i any possible chance to do  anything for
| this section it should be looked into and
| something done at once.   We  have  a
i district here that will surprise the world
| shortly the quicker a wagon road is in
Provir.c'al Far.
The Lillooet mineral exhibit   to   the
Provincial fair at New Weatminster was
not large but in quality could not be beaten.   The district in general  was fairly
well represented and Lillooet showed up
amongst the rest. Every district throughout the province was   represent'-d   and
the mineral display goes to show  what
British Columbia can   do.     A   special
build>ng whs put up   for   the   purpose
and men were in charge all during   the
fair.   Mr. Carmichael provinc al assayer
was at the fair for a few days   and   had
charge of   arranging matters, but owing
to a number of the exhibits being received late some errors   were made placing
them.   Next year the society will take
this matter up again   and   it  is   hoped
more interest will betaken in it.   Next
year competent men will have charge of
the mineral hall from   the  start,   who
will know the minerals and be able   to
have them placed to better advantage.
The fair all through was well attended
and the exhibits were large in number.
The society spared no expense or trouble and the heads of   the affair deserve
credit for making it the success it was.

to the neglect of the richer meneral resources of the Kootenay.
We may also add Lillooet and Cariboo.
Advices from London are to the effect
that during the past week British Columbia three per cent bonds advanced one
point on the exchange.
Considerable kicking is being done
by prospectors and travellers into the
Bridge River section as to the bad condition of the trails. The trail along
Seaton Lake is disgraceful and in others
places it is equally as dangerous.
The Cariboo Railway will probably be
built in the course of a few years, according to the charters the starting point
and the work of constuction has to take
place by the middle of 1899. Ashcroft
will be the starting point as from
surveyors reports it is the cheapest and
shortest route.
The mail service into Bridge river can
be put before our member Mr. H. Bos-
took, who will visit this section shortly.
The citizens should prepare a meeting
and put their needs before him. Mr. Bos-
tock has tried to do everything possible
for his constituents and will be most
pleased to meet them on this visit.
Whisky at Pavilion.
There is  room  for  investigation   at
Pavilion.   Some one is taking advantage
of the lack of government officials   in
this place and are violating the laws of
the country.   It has been going  on   for
6ome   years, but of   late   is becoming
noticable and the offender  or offender*
are growing bolder and bodler.   A criminals will gradually become more daring
and neckless through repeat* d   crimes
when they are committed with impunity
until at last he becomes so open in lib
depredations that one would think that
he was obeying every item of the law to
the letter,   This must   have   been the
case with the Indian who the other day
pulled out a bottle of whiskey from   hie
pocket right in front  of   the   telegraph
office and handed  it   around   amongst
half a dozen others who all had a pull at
it before it was returned to  its  owner.
This was done within sight of   a   few
white witnesses.   If there is a  law   to
prevent Indians from receiving any   intoxicating drinks, why is not in force?
If there is a law to prevent white men
and Chinamen from   selling   liquor   to
Indians why is that not put in force also?
It is a common thing to see an Indian
and even Indian   women   drunk here.
Where do they get their liquor? They
do not manufacture it, and it can be easily obtained through the agency of the
whites and Chinese.    This affair should
be investigated before anything   serious
occurs.   There is no telling what  may
take place if whiskey is allowed   to   be
sold wholesale amongst the Indians ot
even the whites. P.

JOHN A. MURRAY.
C. W. D. Clifford, who was returned
with Captain John Irving as one of
Cassiar's representatives, has arrived on
the coast. With respect to the course he
will follow in the house the new member
said if the Semlin government will adopt
a progressive policy and develop Cassiar
he will support and work with it. As
Clifford and Irving ran on the same ticket
it is likely that Captain John will adopt
the same course. This being so the Semlin administration would have a majority
of three in the legislature after the
organization of the house with two other
independents unplaced.

Favors a $500 Tax for Chinamen.
The Toronto Telegram has taken up
the cause of the British Columbians who
are endeavoring to secure more stringent
regulations upon Chinese   immigration.
In presenting the matter to its readers
the Telegram says: "In the east the
almond eyed celestials are looked on
more or less as curiosities. They run
laundries and are carefully looked after
bv   people   with   missionary   instincts.
In the west it is different. The celes-
tical has crowded himself into various
branches of work till he has become a
positive menace to white labor. He is a
keen competitor in the labor race, his
ability to subsist on anything or nothing
giving his white opponent a heavy handicap. In the cities of British Columbia
are Chinese quarters, where thousands
of them, crowded together in filth, breed
pestilence or serve as a roosting spot for
any disease  that   may   be  passing.
The proposition to put a $500 duty on
each Chinaman entering the country
comes from these cities. It comes from
the people who know the Chinamen
best."	
Mica in Cariboo.
S. Winter, a prominent stone manufacturer of Moncton, N. B„ is on his way
home from examining some rich mica
deposits in Northeastern Cariboo Starting from Kamloops he went to the Tete
Jaune Cache, a point more than 200
miles north of Kamloops, and situated
between the Eraser and Columbia rivers.
He found the deposits to be from 40
to 80 feet thick and brought out more
than 600 lbs. of specimens. These samp
les are of excellent quality, being very
transparent and of unusual size. Careful
tests show that it can stand greater heat
by 40 volts more than any other mica
yet tested. It is more transparent than
the best samples seen of North Carolina,
Wyoming and Montana mica. Mr. Winter has bonded the property and intends
forming a company to develop it.
Will Not Hang.
Samien, the murderer of Elkins, of
Chilcoten, will not hang. An Ottawa
despatch says, an order-in-council hat
been approved commuting the death
sentence passed upon the Indian boy
named Samien, at Clinton for the murder of Trader Elkins. Samien, who is a
Pagan, is not 16 years of age. He shot
Elkins under great provocation. He
was to be hanged in July last but a respite was granted and now commutation
follows.
J. 11. Southard, of Pennsylvania, who
with Mr. .John Hunter of Portland, has
been prospecting gravel banks in the
vicinity of the Fraser river, about 10
miles below Lillooet for some weeks,
came in on Thurtday and left for their
homes the same night. Mr. Southard
states that he is well satisfied with mining outlook for Lillooet and vicinity and
that he will be back soon to undertake
mining operaleons on the Fraser in
which he has great faith. He expresses
himself as surprised and pleased with
magnificent climate of this section,
which is entirely different from all ideas
he, as a Pennsylvarjian, had of British
Columbia.—Mining Journal.

ledge is four ieet wide, assaying $12,
mainly in copper. Near by the Cornwall group is located another claim,
owned by M. P. Stewart and J. W. Buir
with a five foot ledge. Assays have
yielded $22 per ton in gold.
The Dalhousie Boy mineral claim on
Langley mountain, near Basque siding
owned by M. P. Stewart, A. L. Clements,
C. B. Deans and J. B. Bryson is a free
milling proposition and has assayed $23
in gold.   The ledge is four feet wide.

News Awav From Home.
Ktis an old saying that one has to go
nn home to gt-t the news. Proof of
le aptness of the remark is furnished
a police paper published in Boston,
fass, which in its iesue of October   1st
ihlishes the  following   extraordinary
;m:
"The Golden Cache, operating on Lil-
Ipet Creek,  in   Klondike   missed   the
peat deal of rich amalgam from their
mice boxes. They have one of the
[chest gold placers in the country and it
las thought strange that their cleanings
[ere eo elim. They determined to keep
latch for the thief.
Several nights when the moon rode
jigh, one of the miners saw a calf near
hie boxes, often reaching over the brim,
(rinking the muddy water.
I The thefts of amalgam continued, and
Friday night, Sept. 20, when the calf
(ppeared, the miner, in sheer wanton-
less, fired a charge of buck-shot at its
lanks. With shrill cry of agony the
jipposed animal rose upon its hind legs,
id, staggering a few paces, fell.
' The miner ran to where the calf was
Ling and saw a human leg, with the
Let wraped in socks, protruding from the
jnimals body. To his surprise he dis-
|overed that the thief was a young wo-
lan.
For over a year disguised as a young
han, she had been residing at a neighboring camp. The company sent 80
biles for a surgeon, but before the latter
[rrived the girl almost bled to death."
•This thrilling letter press is backed up
l>y a half page illustration representing
busy miner leaning over the form of
L young woman half draped in what is
presumably a calfskin and half buried
Imder what is presumably a sluice box.
The Dutch pianist, Siveking, who was
arrested at Ischi, Upper Austria, about
six weeks ago for neglecting to salute a
priest who was carrying a viaticum
through the streets, has been sentenced
to three days imprisonment for the offence.
On Tuesday last the B C. Express Co's
stage arrived at Ashcroft with $36,000in
gold from the Cariboo Hydraulic Mining
Co's properties on the South Fork of
the Quesnelle. This sura is the result
of the recent clean-up and brings the
total of this season's result to $101,000.
There is to be yet another clean-up
this fall before shutting down for the
winter.
C. P. R. Exemption By-law.
The result of the voting on the by-law
jy the citizens of Vancouver for the exemption  of  taxation of  the Canadian
Pacific railway was 523 votes for to 315
jigainst.   As a three-fifths majority was
leeded this gave 21 J^ votes to the good
The bylaw was submitted for the purpose of obtaining, for the Canadian Pacific railway, exemption from municipal
taxation, for a period of years on the
irards, wharves, works and buildings and
|ands on which terminal buildings for
the  said company may be erected, and
exempting all the real property vested
in the said company in the limits of the
[city for a certain period, from  any inter ease of taxation that may be imposed
[by reason of the city granting a bonus
1 to a competing tailroad within a certain
[period of time.
As a consideration for such exemption
the Canadian Pacific railway undertook
to erect certain ttrminal buildings,
wharves and works as set out in the bylaw.
The by-law is to come into force and
date from May 9th, 1898, it having been
originally^intended to be put before the
electorate during the term of office of
the 1897 city council.
