a set back, when people with money
would otherwise have opened up the
district. There are a number of good
claims in this district, which will eventually draw attention, notwithstanding
the unscrupulous methods used a few
years ago. With the advent of easy
transportation Blackwaier will speak for
itself.

M )Ome very nice looking ore into  town
from  his  claims,  which are six   miles
from   the  old  Canb o road and about
\18  miles  from  the  Pemberton   Port-
I,{age. The claims were staked last fall
K yd very little work was done until this
% eununer, when a hole about eight feet
__ was sunk, showing a well defined, solid
ledge six feet wide. The ledge can be
f^ traced for over 300 feet. The indications
on the surface were good, but on going
down it improved considerable in tie
[f. quality and quantity. Assays have been
made for gold and copper, which gave
eleven per cent copper, the rock averaging about $25 or $30 to the ton. About
live pounds of the ore has been sent to
Omaha for to get a general analysis

the ledge, quite a lot of rich float being
found. This was all dead work and
when oveccmethe ledge was easly (ouirfl,
several cuts were made from six to ten
feet and in every one the ledge could he

group averages from one to five feet in
width anil is well defined, the wall on
one side being syenite and on the other
diorite, considerable porphpry accompanies the ledge on the walls. The.
ledge carries free gold it being visible
throughout.
At present six men are working opening up the property and are building an
arrastra. Fifty tons of ore is already to
run and they have several hundred tons
more in sight. The arrastra will be
completed shortly, it will have a twelve
foot bed and will be able to handle two
tons of rock a day. Mr. Williams is in
town at present making arrangements
for machinery in connection with it.
The Lome group is considered by
all who have visited the Bridge River
to be one of the best properties there
and with the work done shows up well.
The owners are able to continue work
and are satisfied to boll the property
and work it themselves. When the
arrastra is in good running shape, good
cleanups will be made to reward the
owners for their ] erseverance and work.

by W. Halynmreand partners. They had
some trouble in building a trail to the
roperty, and succeeded in making a
good one considering the trouble they
haii to contend with. Work done on
the ledge has opened up a nice vein of
free milling quartz. The ledge is from 2
to live feet in width and can be traced
for quite a distance. The prospects for
the Why Not are extremely good.
Word received from Mr. T. P. Reed,
who is doing work on his claims on Cadwallader creeks, says that the Bridge
district has the brightest prospect of any
mining camp he has ever seen. He has
mined all over British Columbia and
has had considerable experience in new
camps. As soon as a number of the
claims are opened sufficient to allow
capital to investigate, the camp will
forge steadily ahead. Mr. Reed's claims
are looking lirst rate and will continue
work not expecting to return to Lillooet
for several weeks yet.

The Canadian Pacific Railway company have decided to give a very cheap

will largely increase the number of visitors to the exhibition.
FIRE   PROTECTION.
THE   PROVINCIAL   EXHIBITION.
Select good san.pies of ore from your
mines and claims and send them to Thk

The Prospector by the managers of the
Provincial Exhibition to be held at New
Westminster in October, to assist in collecting a first class mineral exhibit from
this district for the exhibition. A separate building has been supplied for the
special purpose of showing the minerals
of this province, and every advantage
will be given the visitors who attend the
fair to inspect the minerals of the province.
A meeting of the managing committee
of the Lillooet Fire Brigade to look after
the putting in of a water system for fire
protection was held on Tuesday evening.
The secretary had everything arranged,
haying gone into the matter, and had
secured estimates, etc., on everything
needed in connection with the works.
The pipe will be 4-inch and the eost of
digging ditch, laying pipe, superintending was discussed. Tenders for the
d'gging of the ditch are called for on
Monday. The bringing in of the water
by another course and down the main
street did not meet favor and the secretary explained that the wate** would
still be broughtdown in the same course
to a given point and there divided, so
that the wat'." would run each way.
It seems that a resolution to this effect was passed at a former meeting, and
the secretary insisted upon it.
The government has made an appropriation of $1,000 towards fire protection
f'»r the town of Lillooet, and the town
has ten inches of water for the use o
the residents and for fire protection.
The spend n.'of this money should be
done judiciously, and arrangements
made so as to give satisfaction to all.

PROHIBITION   QUESTION.
The Laurier government will shortly
carry out its pledge given before the last
general election and submit the question
of the total prohibition of the manufacture and sale of liquor to a plebiscite.
Every elector should carefully consider
how he will vote on this important matter. It is a new departure in legislation
in this country. Our neighbors to the
south are rather fond of experimental
legislation, and some of their enactments
rather startle the staid Britisher. However when it comes to enforcing these
laws, Unless report belies them, they ate
more honored in the breach than the
observance. In England and her colonies on the contrary, the laws are
very strictly enforced. It is very undesirable that any laws shall be placed on
the statute book that have not the sup.
port of an overwhelming majority of the
people. Unless such a majority favor*
prohibition, it will be impossible to
carry it out, and a piohibitory enactment will not only be useless for the
purpose for which it is intended, but absolutely do mischief, by giving people
the habit of disregarding the law.
The advocates of prohibition dwell con*
tinuallyon t he great evilsoaused by drink.
They paint harrowing pictures of weeping women and starving children, and
try by these means to work on the feelings of people, so that they may support
them in carrying out their pet theory.
No one in his senses disputes the great
mischief caused by the excessive consumption of liquor. The question at
issue is, not the existence of the evil but
the best way to cure it. If it were certain that prohibition would put an end
to drunkeness and its attendant evils it
would have been long since carried out.
In discussing the question of prohibition two things must not be lost sight
of. First. How the revenue which is
at present produced by the duties on
liquor shall be raised. Second. The
compensation to those who have sunk
their capital in enterprises connected
with the manufacture and sale of liquor.
Are those who intend to vote for pro
hibition prepared to put their hands in
their pocket* and pay their share of extra taxation which will be rendered
necessary? At present those who consume liquor pay a much greater proportion of taxation than those who do not.
If prohibition is carried out all musi
equally cont ribute.
It should also not be forgotten tha<
the stoppage of the manufacture and
sale of liquor will throw an immense
number of people out of employment. What are these people to do?
Even if they t.re capable of doing other
work where are they to get it? There
is no doubt that unless some steps ate
taken to prevent, it an immense amount
of suffering will be caused by the sudden
stoppage of the manufacture of liquor.
Then there are the capitalists to be
considered, both large and small. These
men have invested their capital in a
business sanctioned by ihe law. Prohibition would deprive them of that
capital, and in our opinion compensation should be made them. This would
require a large sum of money. How is
it to be raised? The advocates of prohibition dispose of these difficulties b\
assuming that anyone who in anywa\
deals in liquor is guilty of an unpardonable sin and therefore deserves no consideration whatever. When reminded
that ther is the v«jry highest sanction
for the me of wine, viz: The miracle of
Christ turning water into wine at the
wedding h ast at Cana of (Jalilee; the)
assert that the wine there spoken of was
not intoxicating. When they are proved
to be wrong in that assertion they
quietly drop the Bible, although generally very fond of throwing texts at their
opponents heads.
Prohibition has been tried in thu
State of Maine and also in theNoithwept
Territories. It does not appear to have
been u success in either country. In
Maine the chief effect seems to have
been the transferring of the drug stores
into liquor shops. In the Northwest
the smuggling of liquor seems to have
been so extensive that the only effect
has been to increase the price.
We believe that if the experiment is
tried the use of liquor for any purpose
whatsoever should be prohibited. There
are substitutes for it in medicine. If it
is allowed in the country at all prohibition will be a failure.

Notwithstanding the fact that the sale
of mineral claims all over the country is
a little inclined to be slow, an immense
amount of development work is going
on just the same.
The time it past when all the prospector had to do was to cut a few stakes, secure a nice sample (many times from
another property) and go out and sell
his "mine " to some sucker. In order
to command attention now, a mineral
property must have enough development
work done to demonstrate something of
its permanent nature, or the owners
must be willing to allow would-be investors to put all or nearly all first payments into the property instead of the
pockets of the holders.
The sooner locators and small owners
realize that the mining industry has passed the froth and bubble period and get
to work with steel and dynamite instead
of wind and specimnns, the sooner they
will be in a position to command capital.
Mining operators are no longer speculating in surface showings they must
have developed properties.—Ex.

Poor pug has succumbed, and has departed to that land where all good bow
wow's go. Many were the tears shed
over his beautiful corpse and many were
the suggestions of his admirers as to
what should be done with his remains.
Some suggested interment in the grounds
attached to the church, but alas this
could not be. The ground is consecrated, besides whoever saw an angel
with wings and a pug. No, the stern
church wardens frowned this down.
Some suggested sending him away to
the coast and having him stuffed. Alas
the express rates are high and he was
getting higher, this fell through. Another
suggested Hindo rites, that is casting
him into the sacred Ganges. This last
plan was adopted at 10:30, on Friday
morning, with Bolemn ceremony his re-
mrilis were cast upon the waters in the
eui'e and certain hope that he be returned to us after many days ('tis hoped) in
the shape of a sockeye salmon.
Requietcat in pace dear pug and may
your tail never curl less.
A number of important changes came
into effect in the post office department
on the 1st of this month. The chief of
which is the introduction of the postal
note system by which postal notes may
be purchased instead of stamps for remitting small amounts, and the delivery
system where there is a letter carrier
service. The 1st also saw the introduction of the electric motor car into the
mail service between East Toronto and

THE   PROSPECTOR.
THE   BIG  FAW.
According to Mr. W. H. Keary, commissioner for Westminster's big exhibition which is to he held in October, the
show is going to be by far the most important one ever held in British Columbia. No less than $18,000 has been offered for prizes and already 14 agricultural societies have entered for the society prize for grain, roots and vegetables.
A notable feature is the very large number of people who intend visiting the exhibition from the upper country and Mr.
Keary says that there will be the gn at-
ett exhibition of fruit ever seen In Canada. Not only is there the exhibition
proper, but each day there will be some
great attraction, inch ding particular!)
tine pyrotechnic displays, which hav<
been secured at heavy expense. Tin-
transportation companies are wiving liberal rates, and enormous crowds will be
attracted during the fair. A movement
is in progress too get out one of the
crack Eastern lacrosse teams to play a
combination of the British Columbia
teams. Mr. Keary is now visiting the
island ami from the coast goes to Kootenay to work up a mineral exhibit
which will be a wonderfully tine collection of the province's resources in that
branch. The buildings at Westminster
have had to be greatly enlarged for this
fair and besides giving the main building large additional space, a machinery
ball iOO by 80 feet is being erected and
there is also to he a separate building
for the mineral display .-—Colonist.
