LILLOOET, B. C. FRIDAY, DECEHBER 16, 1898.
$2.00 a year.
BRIDGE  RIVER.
W. J. McAllister arrived in town from
the Ida May Tuesday evening and reports everything as looking first rate in
the Bridge River district. He returned
again Thursday with the Gibson party.
At the Bend 'Or, R. H. Wood has the
dam completed and is now at woik getting out lumber for the flumes and other
necessary buildings. The dam is an excellent piece of work and was put in in
quick time. Four men are employed at
the mine and they ure going on with the
work with good success.
0. A. Harthoru has been crosscutting
the mother lode on his claim the Gold
Lea;. From the work done so far it
shows up good and promises to be rich.
Dan Hamilton who is placer mining
about a mile below the Forty Thieves on
the South Fork is making good pay.
1). McLeod aud Jake Patterson are
also placer mining on the South Fork
with very good results.
Grant White and George Church are
vhipsawing lumber at Tyauchton and
wilLeject a-winter rasidertae.—J. J. Bar*
wood is putting in some good time on
hunting expeditions. Nat and Dave
Coughlin will also winter at Tyauchton.
Dun lop's place is a great convenience
to the boys and travelers up this way.
contract for delivering the machinery at
the mine has sub-let it. Fred Appleyard
will take it from the foot of the lake to
♦ he Mission and D. J. R. Cameron then
has the contract from there to the
mine. He will take itfrom'the Mission
on sleds over the summit to Bridge River
and will proceed up the river on the ice.
Tha heaviest piece of the machinery
weighs 350 pounds. It is expected that
it will take 40 days time from the time
the machinery gets started from Lillooet until it reaches its destination. The
dam is completed and the foundation
are all being erected for the mill and unless some unforeeen accident occurs, the
mill will be reedy to run not later than
the let of July, and if good luck is had,
it will probably be a month earlier.
LILLOOET   niNINQ   DISTRICT.
The following statistics for the Lillooet
mining division for the year ending Nov
ember 30th  J 898, is of  interest to   the
public and shows the business transacted in mining during the year.
Free miner's certificates issued  383
Mineral claims recorded  408
Conveyances and agreements recorded 176
Certificates of work recorded    203
Placer claims recorded      6
Placer claims re-recorded      2
Revenue from free miner's certificates |2,287 00
Revenue mining receipts, general     2,894 10
One hundred ana forty-six mineral
claims, fifty certificates of work, reven
conveyances were recorded, and thirty-
four free miner's certificates were issued
at the Cadwallader office, which are included in the above.
The Golden Cache.
Id. May Mil a.
W. F. Gibson, W. J. McAllister, J. F.
Gibson and H. McEdwards left town
yesterday afternoon for the Ida May
claims on Cadwallader. W. P. Gibson
has just returned from the coast where
he had gone a few weeks ago to secure a
pump for the handling of the water in
the tunnel. The pump arrived at Lillooet the first of the week and was sent
on to the mine, and as soon a? the party
airives will put it in position for working. The intention was to continue the
\iork on the main tunnel with a force of
men, but since Mr. Gibson's visit to the
coast, work will be commenced on a tunnel lriO feet below the present workings.
This tunnel will be run to tap the ledge.
Work will a _o be continued in the tunnel on the ledge which is dipping considerably at present. About six men
will be kept on all winter and will push
the work on with all possible speed.
Plenty of supplies have been taken in
for the winter and everything is in com-
lo'rtable shape for the men.
The determination reached by the
shareholders in the Golden Cache, at a
meeting, last week, to proceed with the
development of the mine, is beyond
dp,ub^J&&pio4__^_aur«e to pursue. So
far the company's operations have been
a failure, but it has by no means been
proven yet that the Golden Cache is not
a great mine. What development has
already been done on the property
shows that there are portions of the ore
vein extremely rich, and it is just possible that a continuous vein of rich ore
may be entered upon at any time. The
amount of money that is to be raised to
do tiie additional work will be ample to
prove the mine, and, no matter what
the results, there will be greater satisfaction felt then if the property were left
in its present rtate.—"B. O. Mining
Critic."
As had been announce 1 a very considerable change has made in the directorate of the Golden Cache mine and
this necessitated an election of officers.
The personnel of the board is now as
follows: President, William Skene; vice-
president, J. J. Banfield; directors,
Robert Hamilton, Benjamin Douglas
and W. R. Robertson; secretary, A.
Grant.
Paroei Post Packages.
The Bend'Or Machinery.
We learn the machinery for the Bend
'Or Company is at Ashcroft and will be
brought to Lillooet at once and removed
on to its destination at the companies
property on Cadwallader Creek. The
machinery consists of a stamp and saw
mill and in all weighs about fifty thousand pounds and the whole outfit was
furnished by the Wm Hamilton Mfg
Company.   Artli
The following extract from departmental circular issued to all postmasters
in Canada, relative to parcel post packages,was received at this office this week
fijpin the deputy postmaster general:
"The attention of postmasters is further called to the fact that no parcel can
be sent from Canada to any other country by parcel post unless it bear a customs declaration setting forth the nature
of its contents and its value. As the acceptance by a postmaster of a parcel addressed to any other country, and not
provided with a customs declaration,
will result in its being sent to the dead
letter office, postmasters are specially
directed not to accept such parcels without the customs declaration."
Examining ricglllivray Creek.
R. B. Skinner, W. Munroe T. A. and
A. A. Brett left Thursday morning for
the Biett group of claims on McGillivray
creek, which are under bond to Mr.
Skinner, The bond has been transferred
to a Vancouver Syndicate and Mr. Munroe is up to thoroughly inspect the property before continuing the work. The
contract of the first 100 foot tunnel has
been completed and in all probability
after this visit another contract will be
let to continue tht work. Mr. Skinner
and Mr. Munroe will be absent several
days. Mr. Skinner received a very bad
fall at Vancouver jeveral weeks ago of
which he has not  yet   fully   recovered
Imperial Postage Stamp.
Some newspapers heve stated that the
new two-cent Imperial stamp will not
become available until Christmas day,
enquiry at tne post office elicited the fact
that though it was the original intention
of the department that the new stamp
should not come into use until the 25th
inst., the demand from the public for it
has become so pressing that the department decided io issue it at once and permit its immediate use to the extent of
its face value for all postage purposes;
in other words, as soon as it reaches the
public it may, if preferred, be used instead of ordinary two-cent stamp. The
one-cent inter-Imperial rate does not
come into effect until Christmas.

formed by Rev. R. Hughes, The bridesmaids were Miss M. Carson and Miss L.
Letalien and the groom wan supported
bv Messrs. G. Ca-son and I. Kerr. Af er
the ceremony the assembly sat down to
a nice spread and toasts and speeches
were delivered. During the evening
games of numerous kinds were indulged
in and a very pleasant evening spent.
The bride and gr.-om are both well
known in this vicinity and their hosts of
friends and acjuantances all join in
wishing them a pleasant journey on the
matrimonial sea. The bride was a resident of Lillooet for some time, only going
to New Westminster a tdiort time ago.
The groom is one of the rising \oung
business men of the district, he and his
brother owning and operating the flour
mill at Pavilion besides running a general store and freight teams. Mr. arid
Mrs. Cummings will reside at the Mill.
Local Netvi.
Dr. Sanson arrived in town this afternoon from Clinton on a visit to his
patients in this locality.
W. Durban is now constable during L.
G. Burns' absence and has his eagle eye
on several offenders of the peace.
The annual meeting for the election
officers of the I. O. P. will take place
tomorrow (Saturday). Other important
business will also be transacted.
The municipal elections for the city of
New Westminster took place last Monday. The mayoralty was contested by
W. H. Keary and Thomas Ovens, the
latter beating the former by about 37
votes.
Pavilion Mill was the scene of a very
pretty wedding Thursday afternoon
when Robert D. Cumming was united
in the bonds matrimony to Marguerite
C. Morrison of New Westminster. The
bride arrived at Ashcroft Wednesday
evening, the groom going over there
to meet her. They arrived at the mill
Thursday afternoon where a number of
friends and relations had  gathered   to
It is reported that two new justices of
the peace will shortly be appointed for
this locality. It is reported that
the office of stipendiary magistrate
will be abolished and the two justices
will act in his place. The dignity
and honor of the bench should be kept
up and men of character, ability and
honor appointed to such offices.
We have received information from
reliable source that the government
will compensate J. P. Forde, late mining
recorder at Cadwallader and clerk in the
government office at Lillooet. Mr. Forde
was dismissed from office on very short
notice after going to considerable trouble
and expense in preparing for the winter
expecting to remain in office. Af.er
leaving Cadwallader he proceeded to the
coast and while there received notice to
report at the Lillooet office for duty,
which he did, and after two weeks work
was dismissed without receiving any
notice. We are pleased to see the
government remedy any mistake  it  is THE PROSPECTOR, LILLOOET, B. C, FRIDAY, DECEMBER 10,   1898.

The mail service to Bridge River is
still in existence. The mail carrier making regular trips and giving satisfaction
to the people living in that section and
•who still pay for the whole service out
of their pockets. The people are anx-
iouBly awaiting the outcome of the representations made to our member a short
time ago ahout mail matters and hope
the poBtmaster-general will soon see his
way clear to establish a mail service under government supervision—adopt the
penny postage. The new year may
bring about some changes, and we hope
that it will not inconveniece the department to spare a few moments in considering our wants. If other districts were
compelled to pay for their mail service
direct, there would be no kick, but it is
not so, as there are numerous places
throughout the provice receiving a mail
service, which is not as important as the
Bridge River section. This winter and
the coming spring will see wonderful
changes in this section, mines will be
opened up and a large number of men
employed, with the hundreds of prospectors throughout the district next year it
will be absolutely necessary that some
thing should be done to give these people a mail service. If any business of
importance is to be transacted a special
carrier will have to be emplyed to bring
the matter to the post office at Lillooet.
Surely the post office department will
not allow things to go on in this shape.Jjj
The Golden Cache company will continue work on their property and determine the value fully before condemning
it. Funds will be raised and work will
possibly be started at an earlv date. The
Cache had rich surface showings and
the reports made on the property, where
the work was commenced, were not very
satisfactory, although all thought the
ledge would be eventually struck. The
work from now on will be to thoroughly
prospect for the ledge at the lower workings, as the report of the late superintendent was favorable in finding it at a
distance of a few hundred feet. The
company have all the latest machinery
for working the property on a cheap
scale. The Cache has not been yet
proved a failure and it shows the faith
the company have to further develop it.
With good workmanship and systematic
mining the property may yet redeem itself and may surprise a few doubtful
ones that have been talking rather wild
of late.
The provincial house meets in a few
weeks, it would be well to keep the proposed wagon road to Bridge River before
the government. This district will yet

It is expected that definite action in
the matter of the North Yale election
petition will be taken early next week.
Mr. Deanes solicitors have made two
applications to have the trial brought on
at once, and yesterday there was a
scrutiny of the ballots. The petitioner,
Mr. G. B. Martin, will have to decide
whether all the points in the petition
are to be proceeded with, which, in effect
means whether the petition shall go to
trial or not. An effort will be made o
have the trial take place in Kamloops
in the event of the suit not being withdrawn.—Sentinel.
A year ago a German schoolmaster
Mr. Angler, was convicted by a criminal
court of some act of immoralitv. Not
long ago he died insane, and an autopsy
showed that he was doubtless morally
irresponsible at the time the offence
was commited. With German thoroughness a new trial was ordered and the
dead man has recently been acquitted
in due from.
The marriage took place at Barkerville
Wednesday, Nov. 30th, of Dr. Charles A
Tun&tall and Miss^Alice Bowron, daughter of John Bowron, Government agent
and gold commissioner. The Rev. Field
Yolland performed the ceremony. Dr.
Charles Tunstall is a son of Judge Tun-
stall, of Kamloops.

An Interesting Mining Appeal.
At a sitting of the full court at Victoria
last week the following interesting mining appeal was heard.
Connell vs. Madden, a mining appeal
of a somewhat interesting nature, opened before the full court. Madden, the
defendant, located the Sheep Creek Star
claim in the Rossland district. This
part of the district is close to the boundary line, and Madden in locating put up
his No. 1 post in Washington state. Next
he located his claim 1,000 feet to the
right of his location line and 500 feet to
the left of it, and when he came to record did so in exactly the reverse way.
After this along came the plaintiff and
located the Boundary No. 2, which covered a portion of the ground in which
was the Sheep Creek Star. This conundrum in locating was taken into t e
court, and Mr. Justice Walkem's solution of the problem was that Madden's
location was illegal and void on account
of No. 1 post being placed outside of
British Columbia. From this an appeal
was taken, and the argument opened.
Atlin Offfcals Appointed.
The appointment of Mr. Graham, of
Revelstoke, as the provincial government agent and mining recorder for
Atlin, vice Mr. Rant, was officially ai -
nounced last week, together with that of
J. H. Brownley as surveyor for the district. Premier Semlin says that Mr.
Graham has been given large discretionary powers, as he will have charge of
the whole of the northern British Columbia territory. The appointment of
the necessary staff has been left with
Messrs. Graham and Brownley, who will
leave for the north shortly.
It is reported from the Cariboo country
that two or more of the up country physicians will not remain where <hey now
are, they having received notice that a
Government subsidy would no longer
be paid them after Jan. 1st. It is further stated that this does not meet with
the approval of the people in general, as
at some points it is necessary to have a
doctor where he can be called in case of
need, and that without Government
assistance no man can afford to remain
at Quesnelle or the 150 Mile House. The
matter should, in the interests of all the
people, be carefully considered.—Min
ing Journal.
Dominion Parliament, last session,
voted $15,000 towards the construction of
a wt»gon road from Edmonton in the direction of the Yukon, The Territorial
Government has built 240 miles of the
road, at a cost of $10,000, and an order-
in-Council has been passed, on the
recommendation of Mr. Tarte granting
$10,000 of the Federal appropriation to
the North west Government for the continuation of the work. No money will
be paid until the work has been performed.     	
Dining at a friend's house, Thackeray
found himself placed between two young
men, who amused themselves by turning him into ridicule. After some time
he asked them : " It seems, gentlemen,
you take me either for a fool or an ass;
but I can assure you you are mistaken,
for I am only sitting betwixt the two."

An English statistician workb out in
figures that a great European war would
cost £4,195,600 a day, or £1,727,120,000
in a year. It is calculated that Europe
now pays $225,000,000 a year to maintain
its fleets and armies, and its interest
charges are as much more. ^Apparently
peace is cheaper than war, unless war
would compel general disarmament.
But the figures given above cannot be
regarded as definite, for there can be no
effective calculation of what a war will
cost in the destruction of property and
lofcB of life.	
Even preachers understand the virtues
of advertising and some of them make
use oi the newspapers to augment their
congregations. Ii is said that recently
a celebrated preacher advertised that on
a given Sunday he would discuss a
famiiy scandal from his pulpit, and as a
consequence the church was crowded
before the time of service. The preacher's discourse was on Adam, Eve and
the serpent. The crowded house has
convinced him of the value of advertising. 	
Lord Minto's titles are not quite numerous as Lord Aberdeen's but they figure
quite lengthly enough. Here they are:

Melgund of Melgund, County of Forfar,
in the Peerage of the United Kingdom,
Baroned Minto to Minto, County of Roxburgh, and the Peerage of Great Britain,
Baronet of Nova Scotia, Governor-General of Canada.

S.r.—I am (tending to you herewith a
v forms or statutory declarations,
deb you will kindly make before pro-
ding with any inquest. Unless this
;!ar«tion ife made by you, no fees will
allowed for the inquest. The evince which you transmit to this Pertinent will be looked at with a view
determining wjuether.a coroner's ih-
;est should have been held, and in any
se where the evidence docs not justify
ur belief that an inquest should have
en held, kindly send in a special report
owing what information you had at
time you made the declaration,
Inch induces jou to believe that an in-
est should take place. With regard
obtaining medical testimony at any
[quest held by yon, the evidence will
closely scanned with a view to de-
mining whether such medical testi-
ony was necessary. Heretfore, in my
•inion, coroners have been to ready to
in medical testimony in cases where
was not at all required. In any cage
leafier, where medical testimony is
allowed as being not required, the
lysician called upon will be duly paid,
e amount paid him will be deducted
[mi the fees of the coroner."
The certificate mentionel in the above
cular requires the coroner to make a
latutory declaration that "from infor-
[ation received by me, as coroner, I am
opinion that there is reason for be-"
ving that the deceased did not, come
his death from natural causes, or from
-re accident or mischance, but came
his death from violence of unfair
[cans, or the culpable or negligent con-
ct of others, under ciicumstances re-
iring investigation by a coroner in-
est."
