LILLOOET, B. C. FRIDAY, NOVEHBER n, 1898.
$2.00 a year.
PUBLIC   MEETING.
Hewitt Bostock, M. P., for Yalc-
' Car boo spent last Friday afternoon in
'town. Mr. Bostock had not visited Lillooet for two years and expressed himself as being very much surprised at the
improvements effected here and the appearance of welfare in the town. Mr.
Bostocks object in visiting the town was
to find out the requirements and need*
of the district, to effect this purpose a
meeting was held in Santini's Hall the
same evening at eight o'clock,
The  chair   was   taken   by   Eusebius
Peters, Esq., and   the   business   of the
■ meeting   was  opened   by the honorary
secretary reading an address from the
1 Liberal electors of this district, thanking
I Mr. Bostock for his visit and at the same
time congratulating him on the success
lot* his parliamentary career and pledging
'him their support at the next election.
In the course of a long speech Mr.
Bostock showed the prosperity enjoyed
by the Dominion of Canada under Liberal administration. The position of
Canada today in the hearts of Britain as
f compared with a few years ago, and the
praise due Mr. Laurier for this wonderful change, besides enumerating the
many acts passed by the Dominion
house.
At the close of his speech Mr. Bostock
was loudly cheered.
Several gentlemen then addressed the
chair advocating a postal service to
Biidge River and from Lillooet to Lytton,
these being the burning questions of the
hour, and to which Mr. Bostock lent an
attentive ear and promised his earnest
attention.
A. W. Smith, M. P. P., in course of a
speech called the attention of our mem-
. ber to the extreme low rate of pay allowed by the dominion authorities to its
post masters, and the necessity of some
different treatment to suit the living
rate in this province, particularly calling
the attention of all present to the miserable stipend paid to our own post master. This speech was loudly applauded
as everyone was in sympathy with the
speakers views.
Mr. Bostock related some of the difficulties in the way of dealing with dominion rates, but promised to do all in his
p')wer for our post master.
Mr. S. A. Macfarlane proposed a vote
qi thanks to Mr. Bostock for the energy
delayed by him two years ago in ob-
«, _g for this district increased postal
iacilities. The motion was cairied unanimously.
The meeting ended by Mr. Bostock
proposing a vote of thanks to the chairman and Mr. Smith proposing a vote of
thanks to Mr. Bostock for his visit, both
motions meeting with the approval of
all present.	
store of latent heat to call   into  service
when the mercury is low.     We have a
genuine warning of the on coining wilier written on the mountain  side; the
snow is eoming lower almost daily, and
it will soon reach us.   In a small towi
like   our   own, we wonder how we can
find entertainment sufficient to save us
from what is sometimes known as the
" blues."   It seems we will have no such
diiliculty this   winter.     The   projoed
skating rink has "caught on" and  before long we   hope,  the clear swish of
steel will mane music in Santini's field,
and figures will be cut, we veutute to

will   do  the   boys poo 1 and lessen the
danger of torpid livers, which are often \

there will   be  something " moving" at
the Methodist church.     We are promised debates and evenings with the poets.
Lillooetites ought to cheer up and look
forward to tlie coming   winter   with an
anticipation which, we have every reason to believe will  not   be  disappointment.

Sudden Death of Johnny HcDonald.
Last Monday morning considerable
gloom was cast over the town by the
sudden death of Johnny, only son of Mr.
and Mrs. Archibald McDonald. It seem-
that he had been somewhat unwell for a
few days, but nothing serious was entertained by his patents. He had breakfast with his mother at the usual hour,
and shortly afterwards was seized with
violent spasm, the reaction following the
sixth, causing his death. He was a
bright, promising lad of nine years and
was a general favorite in the town.
The large attendance at the funeral
which took place Wednesday afternoon
was a sincere testimony of the public
sympathy for the sorrowing parents.
The Revs. Hardie and R. Hughes officiated, the former giving an appropriate
address in the Methodist church. Out
of respect for their fellow school mate
the school children marched in body
from the church to the cemetery. The
following playmates acted as pall bearers: Bertie Phair, Willie and James
McKiver, John Marshall, Mat. Miller
and Frank Durban.
Mr. Smith on behalf of Mr. and Mrs.
McDonald thanked the friends and sympathisers at the grave for their kindness
shewn the bereaved family in their great
trial.
A special B. X. stage arrived in town
Thursday afternoon with a load of commercial travelers.
All the valuable shacks in town are
being occupied by men coming in from

The Brett Bros, and a few men were
down from McGillivray creek the first of
the week. They report the Brett group
as looking fine and the ledge as having
improved with the work so far done.
They brought down with them some
magnificent rock and a bottle of !-peei-
mens which is on exhibition. The tunnel is now in about 100 feet, they having
still about thirty-five feet yet to run to
complete their contract.
The properties down the creek on the
same lead are attracting attention lately
and several new finds have been made
which shows up wonderful.
McGillivray creek mines have many
advantages and will make a fine camp.
Capital is now being interested and before
long more work on a larger scale will be
commenced.
The Ida May.
W. F. Gibson returned from the Ida

LILLOOET, B.C. FRIDAY,NOVEMBER 11,1898.
The necessity of a medical doctor for
the West Biding of Lillooet district is
without doubt one of the most needed
wants of the district. The Lillooet district has at present a good doctor who
makes regular visits to this section ami
is often called on special occasions. In
the past few months there has been
more or less sickness and three deaths
have occurred. Probably if a doctor had
been in attendance the lives of some of
these may have been saved, at least relief could have been given to ease the
sufferers. The government gives a bonus
to medical men in outlying settlement
as the practice is not enough to warr.mt
a doctor settling in such places. Th"
matter of having a resident doctor is a
question that all should get in and advocate and bring it into effect. The
population of the district is growing
every year and with the opening up of
the Bridge River district, with a wagon
road, it will increase the population considerably. Very often a sudden case
of sickness requires the immediate attention of a physician and as the conditions are at present a distance of forty-
eight miles lie between Lillooet and the
headquarters of the doctor. The best
of attention is always given in all cases
of sickness in the absence of the doctor.
The doe'or seldom fails to put in an appearance when called and spares no
time or effort to get to .he patient as
soon as possible. In case of sudden
sickness it is necessary to have a doctor
in attendance and for this reason it is
absolutely necessary to have a resident
physician.
The provincial parliament meets for
the transaction of business on January
5th 1899. Considerable doubt is expressed by many as to whether the pres-
sent ministry will he able to hold together on account of both sides being
about tie. The 8emlin government are
in at present and will probably stay for
av\hile, although the members of the
late government, now the opposition,
have all promised to stay with the old
party. The hearing of the election protests will be h*dd next Wednesday winch
may help either side out. In all this
squabble we would like to impress upon
the head of affairs that it is absolutely
necessary that a wagon road should be
constructed into the Bridge river dis-
tiict. This matter should be attended
to as soon as possible aud the work
started in the early spring. The few
miles of the Lytton road should also be
completed.
The meeting last Friday evening held
by Hewitt Bostock, M. P., was well attended and the member for this district
was given a good hearing. He spoke for
some time on the general improvements
of Lillooet and this section generally and
the benefits the country had received
since the Liberal party had gone into
power. He discussed the Brid_e river
mail service and has promised to do his
best to secure the service at an early
date.
The official plebiscite returns for Yale-
Cariboo district have been given out as
follows: For prohibition, 1,612; against
1,359; total for prohibition 153.
Government Matters.
Therecent number of the B. C. Gaz> t'e
is full of interesting information and one
the most important in many months.
The first item confirms the uew3 published elsewhere in this issue of the meeting of the legislature   on   January  5th.
Another matter also previously noted
in this issue, the appointment of a London agent has been settled and as intimated Mr. Walters is the fortunate
appointee. Another oppointment of
interest is that of Thomas Morgan, of
Nanaimo, to succeed Archibald D.ck as
inspector of mines. Turning to other
mat'ers the Gazette contains the governor-generals announcement fixing Thursday, November the 24th as Thanksgiving
Day. It also contains two very important local government announcements:
One is to the effect that hereafter no
lands or timber will be sold or disposed
of by the government except under
special circumstances. Intending purchasers are advised to supply to the
department showing special circumstances before going to any expense. The
other notice requests all persons interested in obtaining government aid for
roads, trails or bridges to send to the
department the following information:
Description of work desired, reasons
which make the woik desirable; in case
of roads or trails, a rough sketch of roads
in the neighbordood of proposed works,
estimated of cost, and information as to
whether any persons or companies inter,
ested and willing to pay any part of the
cost of same.
The Legislature Meeting.
The Colonist announces it has authentic information to the effect that the
provincial legislature will be called together for the despatch of business on
Januaiy 5th. It will be seen that this
is somewhat earlier than the session
usually has opened of late years. The
coming session it declares wdl be one of
the most important ever held in this
province and the constitutional questions
to be fought out then bid fair to make it
an exceedingly lively one.
Creat Britain and Russia.
Washington, Nov. 3.—According to
the latest cables from the Far East,
Great Britain and Russia seems to be on
the verge of war. Siuce the occupation
of New Chang, in the province of Leotang,
and the forts at the mouth of the river
Liaon, the relations between the two
Powers have been strained. The Chinese Minister here says it cannot be possible that Russia will dare to continue
the occupation of the treaty port.

Gold too Fine to be Saved.
Hon. John Castigan has returned to
Ottawa after several weeks prospecting
along the Peace River. His experience
does not bear out the stories of the rich
gravel of the Feace. In an interview he
says: "All who have returned seem to
be greatly disappointed ; and while I cannot say that I personally know of more
than two or three places where a man
could make from two to three dollars
per day washing the bars, I am still
satisfied that a very considerable mining
population will be found on that river
within the next few years. There is no
doubt of there being considerable gold
pretty generally distributed on the bars
and shores of the Peace, and it appears
to be in larger quantities above the canyon than below it. The great drawback
is that the gold is so fine it cannot be
saved by the 'grisly'or ordinary mining
pan."        	
Expired Miners' Licenses.
The Lieutenant-Governor-in-Council
has received the order whereby free
miners may obtain relief from forfeiture
due to the iapse of a free miner's certificate. The original order, which was
approved October^, 1867, provided that
by making proper affidavits, and remitting $5 to the Minster of Mines, a free
miner whose certificate hadexpired could
get a new license dating from the expiration of the previous one. By this process
claims were saved from forfeiture, unless
in the meantime they had been re-staked
by some other free miner. The new
order in Council, which will go into effect
on November 15, rescinds theold regulation, and does away with the possibility
of relief in case one's certificate expires.
Politicans and the Private Car.
Canadian politicans, after they get out
of office, or before they see the sunny
side of a portfolio, are able to do all
their traveling outside of a private car.
But put a {Canadian politican in office,
and he and his wife and his daughters,
his daughter-in-law, candidates for the
dignity of son-in-law, their man servants,
their maid servants, never seem to be
happy unless they are swaggering in
private cars.
Will History Repeat Itself.
Ninety-three years ago last monlh
the battle of Trafalger was fought. On
that day Nelson's fleet crushed the naval
power of France; and it is evident from
the tone of the recent utterance of Brit-
tish statesman and journals that there
is in Great Britain today a supreme
confidence in the ability of the British
navy to repeat the trick, if necessary.
The following good story is told of the
secretary of a musical society: A gentleman rang his door bell one evening and
asked if Mrs. — lived there. "No" said
the intensely musical Henry pointing to
the street, -'she lives about an octave,
I mean eiglit doors higher."

THE PRO'BPECTOB, LILLOOET. B. C, FRIDAY.NOVEMBER 11, 189
For Prohibition.
Ottawa, Nov. 3.—Rev. Hogg 'arrived
from Winnipeg this morning ami   with
other representatives  of the  Dominion
Alliance will wait upon the Government
this afternoon and ask for the introduction of a prohibition   bill   next eession.
The request will be based upon the fact
that the results of the plebiscite showed
a majority of 13,000 for prohibition and
that the   English-speaking   population,
outsid? of Quebec, favored it by majority
of 105,000.   F. S. Spence said yesterday
that the Government would be justified
in deferring their answer until   Parliament meets, but Premier Laurier will
likely announce his decision   immediately.   It is probably that he will tell   the
deputation that a vote, in which  56 per
cent of those entitled   to   the   f ranchist
took no part,   cannot   be   regarded   as
representative and that with but 22   1-2
per cent, of the voters demanding   prohibition the enforcement of a law would
be impracticable.   In short  he  would
likely take the position that the country
is not yet prepared for prohibition.     At
3 o'clodk the deputation met a committee of the council composed of Sir  Wilfrid Laurier,  Sir   Richard  Cartwright,
and Hon. Messrs Fielding,   Fisher  and
Tarte in the Railway committee room of
the Parliament   buildings.     A   further
analysis of the plebiscite returns reduces
the  prohibition   majority    to    12,218.
There have been deducted 1,485 double
votes in St. John City and County and
292 excess in Three Rivers, owing to
clerical errors. An addition of 64 to the
majority in Richmond, N. S., erroneously ommitted, is necessary. This makes
the total majority 12,218.
The Canadian Pacific Railways company's earnings for September, 1898,
were:—GroBSearning?,$2,396,395; working expenses, $1,303,862; net profits $1,-
092,523. In September, 1897, the net
profits were $2,059 891.
An exchange tells about a bright old
farmer up north who has been experimenting by mixing a little saw-dust
with the meal he fed to his chickens.
The chickens done well on i he mixture,
bo he finally fed them altogether on saw-
Inst. After a while he set one of the
liens on thirteen eggs and waited for the
result. Last week she hatched the eggs
and twelve of the chickens had wooden
legs, and the other was a wood-pecker.
Although at the present time there is
a slight lull in the excitement regarding
the Faehodaquestion, naval and military
activity continues unabated. The British
emergency squadron is now assembling
at Devonport. Three first-class battleships have already arrived. , A very
significent incident in connection with
the naval preparations in the fact that
the press has been notified not to publish any information which might prove
useful to a possible enemy.
While Frederick Remington was in
the west he observed a well executed
portrait in a dark room on the wall of a
cabin and asked whose picture it was.
"That's my husband," said the woman
of the house, carelessly. * 'But it is hung
with fatal effect," urged the artist, who
remembered the fate of his first picture
in the academy. "So was my husband,"
snapped the woman, and the artist discontinued his observrtions.
