Array PROSPECTOR
LILLOOET,   B. C, FRIDAY,   MARCH 27, 1914.
$2 PER YEAR
LOCAL ITEMS.
out to seek his fortune, it would
be a good thing if some of them
directed their attention in the
direction of Cayoosh Creek and
its mining possibilities—both in
quartz and placer.
It is well-known that Chinese,
in 1885, took a lot of money out
of the creek; the late Mr. A. W.
Smith, who represented Lillooet
in the Provincial Legislature for
a number of years, stated repeatedly that he had bought over
$200,000 worth of gold from the
Chinese. This simply represented gold exchange for their needs,
for goods, etc., and, from all
accounts, they lived high.
Of course there is considerable
difficulty in locating ground on
bars that have not been worked,
as the high water effaces most
signs of work, and it is only after
working that one finds that the
ground has been previously gone
over, as results will show; but
there is ground on Cayoosh creek
that is gold-bearing above the
high water mark that has never
been worked, and some within
ten miles of Lillooet that is adjacent to old claims that produced
lots of gold—ground has not been
touched, or at most, but a few
pans have been tried. Such
places are at the upper end of the
Nigger Cabin, above Gold Basin,
where there are possibly half a
dozen claims, and further up the
stream near the mouth of Cottonwood creek up, on both sides of
the stream, and still further up
above that. The gold up there
is coarse and easily saved; the
wash is heavy, but that is the
rule, and placer miners need not
expect to get much gold without
work, nor to find ten dollar diggings on the surface where the
Chinese have been at work, as
they do the same as other miners
and work the easiest ground.
A FIFTEEN-ROUND CONTEST
As the springVfea^^ile'reltu^' The Ashcroft mail is now mak-
the prospector wHtspon^b^go^g ing schedule time to this town.
CD. Wray, the monarch of
Cayoosh Creek, is in town for a
few days.
Frank Brawn, representing the
Imperial Tobacco Co., paid our
town a business visit this week.
Mr. B. Swanson, the Anderson
lake sawmill man, was in Lillooet
this week, attending to business
affairs of the mill.
There is some talk of a big
mineral strike recently made in
the vicinity of Pemberton. The
ore is copper, and is said to be
very rich.
Mrs. Wm. Duguid, who has
had a long siege of illness in Vancouver, has so far recovered that
she will shortly return home to
Lillooet.
There was a storm brewing to
the north of us all morning on
Wednesday, the thermometer
registering 12 above zero at 7
o'clock.
A start has been made on the
North Fork wagon road. Gangs
of workmen are now employed
on all the highways leading to
Lillooet.
It is rumored that Mr. L. Ledgerwood. superintendent of the
Seaton lake salmon hatchery, has
sent in his resignation to the provincial government.
There was half a gale blowing
on Seaton lake last Wednesday,
and when the steamer Britannia
arrived at her landing she was
partially covered with ice.
Services were held in the Methodist Church last Sunday, by the
Rev. Horton, of Ashcroft, before
large congregations, both morning and evening.
John Hunt, superintendent of
the Broken Hill mine, proceeded
to Bridge river with some miners
this week, where he will continue
work on his property.
W. S. Mitchell, owner of the
15-Mile ranch, arrived from Notch
Hill last Monday. He states that
he will put in a very heavy crop
this spring.
The snow having entirely disappeared between Anderson lake
and Squamish, considerable traffic
is now being made between those
two points, by pedestrians.
THE LOCAL BASTILE.
Another respite is in sight for
Clark and Davis, so that the convicted murderers of policeman
Archibald can not be hanged before the middle of June in any
event even if they are called upon
to pay the extreme penalty. A
respite until May 15 was recently
given to allow an appeal to be
taken to the Supreme Court of
Canada in Davis' case. Last Saturday D. G. Macdonnell, counsel
for Clark, whose real name is
Herman F. Behrens, formerly of
San Bernardino, Cal., entered an
appeal on behalf of his client in
tlie Appeal Court of British Columbia. This can hardly be dealt
with before the Davis appeal
comes before the Ottawa court,
and then if it fails Clark's lawyers could again probably go to
Ottawa as Davis' counsel has
done. While officially there is no
pardon in sight for the men, the
impression is growing that the
men are hardly likely to be
hanged.
Capt. A. Phair was in town
yesterday, on business connected
with his Anderson lake passenger
vessel. He likewise subscribed
for another copy of the Prospector, making four that he is now
sending out of the country; this
is an unusual number for one man
to take, but the most extraordinary part of it is that he has paid
for them.
On Saturday, April 4, Lillooet
will be favored with a boxing
contest of the first order. The
principals are Frank Barrieau,
one of the best welter-weight
professionals on the north Pacific
coast, and Bob Bracken, an eastern man of equal ability in the
ring. They are both in the same
class weight, and have successfully contested some hard battles
within the last twelve months.
Barrieau is well known to many
Lillooet men, and is a general
favorite with the sporting fraternity of Vancouver, from which
city he hails. He has brought to
the mat some able men, but with
Bracken he will, from accounts,
have all he can attend to, even
to keep out of the danger line.
The contest will be under the
management of F. J. McDonald
of this town, and will be held in
the opera house. Bracken will
arrive from the coast either today or tomorrow, and go into immediate training. Barrieau will
appear early next week.
We might add that this is a
clean contest throughout, and
should draw a large audience.
The Lillooet Civilian Rifle Association, having secured the professional services of Sergt. F. J.
Gott, will now have one of the
best rifle ranges on the coast.
Gott has a great eye for the perspective, and, in consequence, the
range is so true that water will
not run either way, or whisky
either, for that matter. When
the weather gets a little better
some of our rifle shots will have
an opportunity for some good
practice. The range is 600 yards
long, with suitable facilities at
intervening firing points. A good
idea, at the present time, would
be to select a team of ten men
to retrieve from Lytton, in a rifle
match, the prestige lost by Lillooet in the baseball game a short
time ago.	
At 3 o'clock Wednesday afternoon an alarm of fire was sounded,
when the Hyack fire brigade
hooked on to their new hose reel
with a celerity that looked well
for the future fire protection in
this town. In three shakes of a
lamb's tail they had their apparatus at the scene of conflagration
—Capt. Cox's residence—when
they discovered Pete Sherwood
and Jack Ackers on the roof, hav-
The chain of a drunkard is heavy and cold
Its links are corruption and rust,
Tho' gilded allo'er—it isneverof gold—
The result of a Lillooet big "bust."
The town is orderly and the
jail empty at last;  nothing to
disturb the solitude of that institution now but the sound of a
policeman's big boots, as he parades down the corridors of retribution and soliloquizes  on   the
past and present state of affairs.
A once-popular policeman informed us, a few days ago, that the
local aridity resulting from the
present shortage of cash, seems
in some way to have sucked up
the tide of local crime, in much
the same manner as the Lillooet
snake-charmer sucks up the welcome  eye-opener   handed   him
across the local bars.    There is
now nothing left to remind this
official  of  his former  princely
station in life except the hobbles
hanging on the wall and the blue
papers in the pigeon holes, and
these are but a passive reminder
of the existence of crime—a mere
memory — like  the  reminiscent
froth on the mustache and empty
glass of the snake-charmer   at
daybreak.     Nothing to remind
him of what he had been except
an old pair of shoes stowed away
in the wood-box, the property of
some poor drunken Indian woman
who had come to grief through
civilization's influence, and in her
anxiety to regain her freedom and
lead a primitive and more temperate life,   had forgotten her
boots.    	
Construction work on the railroad bridge at Lillooet is progressing smoothly and rapidly. Under
the superintendence of Mr. J. H.
Halpin a vast amount of work has
been successfully accomplished
during the pasc two months.
Mr.  Rowlands,  who acted as in£ ,Just. extinguished  the last
engineer for the Comptroller of
Water Bights in this district last
year, has been appointed resident
engineer in Nicola district.
Mr. Swann, the articled pupil
to G. M. Downton, is paying a
short visit to his friends on the
coast, and is expected back to
take up his duties with the surveying staff this week.
There is still three feet of snow
on Mission Mountain, and about
a foot deep on the wagon road
from Bridge river crossing to
Tyauchton
it increases in depth, but the road
is in good shape for sleighing.
Mrs. C. P. Dam, who has been
all winter on Cadwallader creek,
where her husband is constructing a wing dam for placer mining purposes, arrived in Lillooet
on Sunday and proceeded next
day to Seattle on a visit to relatives for a few weeks, when she
will return to Bridge river.
soark with a bucket of water,
A few shingles will reoair damage
The cold snap on Wednesday
is claimed by some to be attributable to changes in the arid belt
to the north of us. Others lay the
blame to a hotel proprietor who
wore a straw hat on his way to
church last Sunday. It is claimed
by a great many that the latter
was good and sufficient cause for
the atmospheric change—more so
than the drinking habits of Clin-
tonites. At anyrate it has been
p,.,,™,? tuot ™;~* i the means of planting a smile on
SSffirtaJJ&^&S! the face of the wood-dealer.
Constable McLeod arrived from
the Short Portage on Wednesday,
having in tow a white man and
an Indian, the former charged
with supplying and the latter
showing evidence that he had
swallowed some very bad whisky.
Between them they contributed
about $60 after they had an interview with the local magistrate.
Mr. G. M. Downton, B.C.L.S.,
is expected to return today or tomorrow from Victoria, and will
be busily engaged in work in this
district for the ensuing summer.
The party will probably start out
the first week in April.
W. W. Jones, the Bridge river
magnate, made a forty mile drive
to Lillooet last Sunday and attended services in the Methodist
Church the same evening. He
left for the hills again Wednesday
morning.
Men arriving from the North
Fork state that the wing-dam just
being completed by C. P. Dam is
of the most substantial nature,
and that the Golden Dream Mining Company will make a big
clean-up this summer.
After the Wo Hing building is
painted, which is now in progress,
it will present an imposing appearance. For a small place the
Chinaman has erected a building
that would be a credit to a very
much larger town.

TRAINLOAD OF SETTLERS.
Solid  trainloads  of irrigation
farmers from the irrigated areas
of Colorado to the C.P.R. Irrigation   Block  in   Alberta are the
direct outcome of the policy adopted by the Canadian   Pacific
Railway of encouraging  to its
irrigated lands settlers with practical experience in farming under
similar conditions.    Colorado is
one of the leading irrigation states
and artificial use of water is a
vital feature of agriculture.   A
party of representative farmers
from that state were shown over
the irrigated district in Alberta
last fall, and were so impressed
with the possibilities of the Canadian district that they at once
closed contracts for all the land
within the ready-made farm colony in the Bassano district. Th^se
farmers with their wives, families
and effects will leave Colorado
by special train about the first of
March en route for  their new
homes in Alberta.
The importance of this move to
the development of Western Canada can hardly be overestimated.
The fact that the foremost irrigation farmers of the United
States, after a personal examination of the irrigated area in Alberta, are selling their holdings
in Colorado and moving in train-
loads to Canada 'tells its own
story. It is the best assurance
of the great possibilities which
await the Canadian irrigation district, as it shows that in the'opinion of practical and successful
irrigation farmers, the opportunities awaiting them in Canada are
greater than are to be found
elsewhere.
The trainload of settlers already
referred to is only the beginning
of a movement which this season
promises to eclipse all past records. Other trainloads will be
made up from time to time, and
so important is this traffic expected to become that a special sidetrack has been set aside at Minnesota Transfer for the handling
of these trains. The 20 years
offered by the C. P. R., combined
with the fertility and natural advantages of Canadian soil are
proving an attraction too great to
be resisted by practical American
farmers.
The word "obey" remains in
the Church of England marriage
ceremony. The high authorities
of the church have so decided,
although there was a strong sentiment in favor of its elimination.
The decision brings into the limelight another grievance to aggravate the discontent of rapidly
organizing womankind. Of course
that little word has done duty in
the various marriage services
since the time when it was believed that one of the cardinal
reasons for woman's existence
was to obey her lord and master,
man. But though the obligation
to obey remains in the book, it
has become encumbered by a
wealth of mental reservations.
The fair bride sweetly intones the
response, but smiles knowingly
into her bouquet of flowers as
she does so. She has no intention
of proceeding on a literal interpretation of the word. It has an
altogether different shade of
meaning in her lexicon. It is easy
enough to obey and still rule the
roost. Before this subtle diplomacy our most accomplished
statesmen have been shown to be
mere prattling children. The
gentle bride of many a good and
world-renowned warrior, while
promising unquestioning submission, has done as she willed with
her august spouse. She obeyed
him in the non-essentials; in the
essentials it was he who rendered
obedience, and he did so in the
sweet delusion that he was absolute boss of his domestic camp.

STEPHEN & J. RETASKET. THE PROSPECTOR
CLINTON HAPPENINGS.
«*'-•
From our Regular Correspondent.
BORN—At Mound Ranch, Clinton, B. C, to Mr. and Mrs. G.
Walters, a son.
After a week of surprisingly
mild weather and floods of water,
the snow has practically disap-
yeared in Clinton; the surrounding hills will, of course, retain
their coat for some time yet.
A. B. Williams, provincial game
warden, paid a flying visit to
Clinton on Saturday. Mr. Williams has under consideration the
appointing of a game warden in
this district.
Mr. and Mrs. Frank Aiken have
taken up their residence in the
house recently vacated by Mr.
McGusty.
The Clinton Hotel opened its
bar once more sometime during
last Saturday afternoon. It
was opened by the same authority that shut it. So Clinton once
more ranks on a par with her
other sisters of the "wet belt."
The bar of the 59-Mile House has
also been opened up again. On
this account, there was great rejoicing in Clinton during the last
few days.
Mr. James Haddock, of Ashcroft, passed through town the
other day, bound south, after an
extended trip in the upper country, dealing in furs and hides.
His route lay through Big Bar,
Alkali Lake, Chilcoten, and beyond Alexis Creek; thence to the
150-Mile House and on to Harper's Camp and Beaver Lake. The
trip was made with horse and
cutter, with which he got as far
as the top of Clinton Hill, where
transfer was made to a wagon.
Mr. Haddock did a great deal of
business in the fur line, and
brought down two silver and
black foxes which had been "dug
out" at Alexis Creek. These little
animals had stood their long journey in great shape, so far, and
looked fine, and evidently felt
fine, from the way in which they
growled and snapped at spectators (of which there were many).
But the little fellows have thousands of miles across a whole
continent before them yet, their
destination being the Atlantic
coast. Mr. Haddock will probably receive somewhere around
the thousand mark for the two.
Clinton has no less than six
business signs on its business
street. We don't say that there
are six restaurants, bur, they are
doubtless places where one might
obtain some satisfaction for hunger at a stipulated sum.    The
"Patricia" and the "Clinton" are;
of course the giants of the business, while the other four are a
motley lot, principally of Celestial
origin.
There are persistent rumors
that the expected big construction camp will start up here in
the course of two or three weeks.
Mr. R. G. McGusty, who has
been ^connected with the Government office here for the past fifteen months, is leaving at the end
of the month for the 150-Mile
House, having been transferred
to the Government office at that
place.
There has been a little more
sickness than usual prevalent in
Clinton throughout the past winter. This has been put down by
many as the result of the exceptionally mild and open weather.
This seems to be a strange idea,
but nevertheless, it appears to be
the case in the upper country.
During a severe, hard winter,
with everything frozen up tight,
there is little sickness; but on the
other hand, with soft, mild weather, it is not as healthy; things
that should be frozen up are not
frozen up, perhaps. On the lower
altitudes,again, the reverse seems
to be the rule. It is perhaps,
after all, a law of Nature for the
high and low altitudes.

Professor E. B. Fernow, the
prominent authority on Forestry,
writing in the last issue of the
Forestry Quarterly on the Timber'
Royalty Bill, says that with its
enactment the Province of British Columbia takes the lead in
modern and efficient timber land
administration. He said: "A
very important and very sane readjustment of royalties for timber licences has been embodied in
the bill by the British Columbia
Minister of Lands, the Hon. Wm.
R. Ross. The Minister of Lands,
who was responsible for the establishment two years ago of an
efficient forest service, has boldly
taken hold of the situation and
solved the problem of equitable
dealing in a most practical manner. It gives stability to the
lumber business for forty years
without fear of disturbances, and.
while we miss provisions for improved forestry practice, at least
the financial side of the Government interest is better taken care
of, and changes to introduce
forestry methods are foreshadowed. With this legislation British Columbia takes the lead in
Canada in modern and efficient
timber administration, which, by
passing into the hands of a forest service promises a final forest
management for the future."
