THE   LORNE   GROUP.
John R. Williams one of the owners of
the Lome gioup on Cadwallader Creek
arrived in town Sunday evening from
the mines. Mr. Williams is highly
pleppod with the Bridge Kiver country
: nd speaks in h'^li terms of it. Hie
] artners N. Co ighlan and W. Young
Will Uc down UiU end of this week and
may complete arrangements of transferring the property to a company. During
the past season considerable work has
been done and the claims have been pretty
well opened up all over. 1 he ledges are
covered up and considerable dead Aork
had to be done to bring them in ei>;ht.
When the ledges were reached they
would be followed up and   in  this   way
[ the country has heen torn up. As
we mentioned last week there are
a number of well defined ledges running
through the claims all of which carry
free gold. Three shafts have been sunk
from 15 to 20 feet in depth and numerous
open cuts have been made. Two miles
of ditch has been built to convey water
\i for the 22-foot over-shot wheel to run
the arrastra. The arrastra has a 14-foot
bed, the bed being constructed out ol
large smooth syenite stones, making an
excellent bed and grinding the quartz to
a pulp. The rock which was put through
the arrastra was taken from several open
cuts made for the purpose of the several
claims. The first run was for ten days
and the cleanup amounted to $400 and
still considerable gold was not procured,
although all the tailings have been
deposited in a reservoir and what has
not been saved by the arrastra the own-
era will be able to get again. Runs have
been made since for about a  week each
^ time, the cleanups amounting to about
$200. This week will probably end this
this seasons run and final clean-up will
be made, heretofore they have been only
partial but this cleanup the bed will be
thoroughly gone through. During the
run of the arrastra about 30 tons of rock
has been put through which will net
about $1,000 saved. If the property is
not taken up by some con pany it is the
intention to erect another arrastra in
the spring, as they have ample power
and with more modern conveniences for
saving the gold, they expect to make a
good thing out of the Lome.
taking in the machinery has things in
shape. He has contracted with _Vd
Appleyard to lake the machinery up the
iake. Mr. Noel leaves in a few days for
the mine and will put about five men at
work. The company closed the deal they
had on the Delighted mineral claim adjoining the Bend 'Or this week. It is
•ousidered a valuable addition to the
company's holdings.
The Ida May.
Reports this week that have been confirmed is that while finking on the ledge
a distance of a few feet the ledge widened
out to five feet with perfect wall-. The
work done so for has been followiug the
ledge whbh is well defined and has fine
rock, It is the intention to shortly commence work on a tunnel below to tap the
ledge.

The Dear Head Group of claims between the South Fork and main Bridge
River are owned by Messrs. Cargile,
Johnson, Barnes, Collins, Wyness. and
Itayson all of Ashcroft. The group consists of six full claims and has a large
ledge of 21 feet of solid quartz showing
on it, assays received from the
rock averages l)'60. James Veasy and
Jos. Couver and H. Cargile returned this
week from doing the assessment work,
and reports that the group is looking
very good.
FOR   FIRE   PROTECTION.
At a public meeting held la*t winter it
was decided to as-k the government to
advance for a few years the annual
grant allowed for fire protection. The
amount asked for was granted and with
the fire brigade in charge arrangements
were made for bringing the water to the
town in pipes in place of the open ditch,
so as to afford a certain amount of protection in cat-e of fire. Tim board of
managers figun d the whole system down
fine and deserve credit for the way in
which the business has been conducted.
The town of Lillooet has now a water-
system bringing water to a point behind
the town and so far the citizens have not
been to any expense, although it is the
intention to see what can be done towards continuing the pipe to the street,
a few hundred feet farther. The few-
dollars necessary should be easily raised
aud then a good head of water will be
deposited on the main stieet with only
a few dollars expended. Mr. Kaye and
W. G. Duguid did good woik in engineering, building the dam and ayingthe
pip|t R< H. Brett had the contract for
digging and filling the ditch, making a
good job of it.
The water is taken from a point a few
feet below the old box, a dam 12 feet by
3 feet 5 inches has been put in with a
lower and upper sluice to let off the surplus water. The height of the upper
sluice is 2 feet 6 inches above the lower
which is closed by a gate when the pool
is to be filled. The water enters the
measuring box through a flume which
has also a gate to it and a wire
screen round the outside to keep out the
leaves, etc. From the measuring box
the water passes into two sand boxes
and thence into a flume 6x8 inches,
which has a small meshed screen in
front of it. Let into the flume is a pipe
5 inches in diameter tapering down to
3)£ inches. The pipes are on an average
length of seventeen feet five inches each
and have a screw socket joint. They are
of the tvpe known as castings and tesjed
up to 750 pounds pressure. The pipes
are laid at a depth of three feet and for
the present discharge into a tub sunk
into the ground and from the tub distributed by ditches. The average fall is
1 in 12. A T hydrant will be put in
shortly in place of the tub, and in case
of fire the whole head will be turned in
the main pipe.

Again, the whites were not watching for
any unlawful action on the part of the

We have been asked since why we did
not "nab" him. We had no business
to "nab'' him, Like the true business
man we did not want to hurt his feelings.
He might have stopped "buying" you
know. This is the common thing among
tradesmen—and we are only human
after all. We have a good many of
humanities failings. We have also noticed the same failings in several government officials.
Now, if Mr. Cum tux thinks we care
how others see us, or what they think
of us or say of us, he is badly left. We
know humanity too well to imagine that
one has ever a good word to spare for
another if he thinks that others is getting a little ahead of himself in the af-
faitsoflife. And finally, we would not
be so conceited to sign ourself Cumtux,
as if to make known that we knew every-
hing, so we will sign ourself and let the
world judge. Halo Cumtux.

The new school house is now in possession of the school trustees, the government having taken it over from the
contractors, Mtssre. Duguid & Miller
last month. The building is the same
s'yle and size as is built for all^public
schools throughout, the province. The
building is 22 feet 6 inches by 36 feet,
the school room being 22 feet 6 inches
by 30 feet, a cloak room occupying 6 feet
at the entrance of building, with two
doors leading into the main room. The
building is nicely finished, the contractors making a very neat job of the whole
woik. The school room has ample light
and is comfortable not crowded. There
are four rows of desks, twenty-eight
in all, which will seat 54 pupils with
ease. The lot which is 66 x 132 has a
boaid fence 6 feet high around the sides
and back of the lot and the front has a
neat picket fence with a suitable entrance gate. Lillooet has now as nice a
school house as any town in the province. School opened last Monday in the
new building with a good attendance,
the number of pupils on the roll at present is 45 with an average attendance of
38. Miss A. J. Davidson, the teacher, is
giving good satisfaction both to the children and the trustees, she holds a good
certificate and with experience in teaching the pupils will no doubt advance at a
good rate under her charge. By next
year an assistant teacher will probably
be necessary as a teacher can not do jus-

LILLOOET, B.C. FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 4,1898
We are pleased to notify our subscribers and exchanges that the postmaster-
general has instructed the post-master
at Lillooet. B. C, to extend to The
Prospector, the usual postal privileges
accorded by statute to newspapers and
periodicals. Several of our exchangee
not knowing the reason why postage
was puton The Prospector has knocked it
of their list thinking that the paper came
from some other source. While thanking the post-master general for his kindness, after letting the matter run for
about three months, we wish him a
Merry Xmas and a Happy New Year
and if he ever strikes this neighborhood
we will do the right tiling with him,

receive from the post office department.
The majority throughout the Dominion on the plebiscite for prohibition was
about 12,000. The heads of the temperance organizations in some parts are
kicking hard and from, reports of their
meetings intend to demand of the government to enforce a prohibition law. The
sensible and best thinking of the prohibitionist do not seem to favor the idea
and the result will most likely be that
the matter will drop until future years
It is only wasting wind and time chewing over the affair now and the money
spent on delegates and holding meetings
should be saved until the next compaign.
A mail service into the Bridge liive>'
country has received consideration from
the post'office department, but the estimated costs given by several parties
here was extremely high. Some arrangements may be brought about by
parties for so much a trip. The department will no doubt do something as soon
as a resonable fee is charged,
Important Decision.
J. Fred Hume, minister of mines, ha?
interpreted section 24 of the Mineral
Act. Mr. Hume gives notice that the
phrase, "a tree miner or company of
free miners shall be allowed to perform
on one or more of such claims, all the
work required to entitle him or them to
a certificate for woik for each claim so
held by him or them," shall be constructed as not applicable to a mineral
claim for which a crown grant has been
issued.	
The Conditions.
London. Oct 28.— The Pall Mall Gazette, this afternoon, summarizes the result of the meeting of the British Cabinet, yesterday, as follows: Marchand
must be withdrawn unconditionally, and
no undertaking or promise be given to
discuss the questions raised by Franco
in regard to access to the Nile and suchlike.   2 When Marchand is   withdrawn
it will be determined whether the questions raised admit of discussion, and
under what conditions the discussion
will be proceeded with 3. Every possible facility will be afforded to assist
.Marchand's withdrawal, by whichever
route may be selected. 4. If Marchand
is not withdrawn, there will be no interference with him remaining at Fashoda,
nor any date fixed for his withdrawal
necessarily. Reinforcement will not be
permitted to reach him. He will be
treated courteously, as a foreign visitor,
and will be regarded in no other sight.
5. Therefore, it is left to France to
adopt any active measures to precipitate
a conflict.
The Pall Mall Gazette says it has good
reasons to believe that, while Russia has
counselled France to tide over the difficulty and avoid war, she has promised
to throw her weignt in the scales at no
distant date, for the purpose of bringing
the whole Egyptian question and British
occupation of Egypt to the front for
settlement.
Damand Prohibition.
Peterboro, Oct. 26.—The following
resolution will come up this afternoon,
for consideration at the Ontario Sabbath
School Association convention. This
convention, composed of Sabbath School
workers of all dominations throughout
Ontario, while knowing thatthe Province
of Quebec gav3 a very large majority
against prohibition, and cries loudly
that she should not be coerced into
acception prohibition, urges upon the
Dominion Government that several
Provinces that gave a much larger vote
for prohibition shall not be coerced into
a continuance of legislatory sanction of
the traffic, and hereby demand that the
Government shall place on the statute
books, a law prohibiting the manufacture, importating, or sale of intoxicating
liquors." Several members of the
Association, however, have given notice
of their intention to oppose it.
In the last issue the B. C. Garette,
formal notice is given of an application
to the next fession of the Legislature for
power to build and operate a railway
from a point near the outlet of Kamloops
hake, thence across Bonaparte River
plateau to the 100-Mile House, along the
Cariboo road and Quesnelle River, and
the telegraph trail to Hazleton, and
thence "by the same direct and feasible
route" to Atlin and Teslin Lakes.
A disastrous fire occured in Vancouver, early last Wednesday morning,
which destroyed the Hastings Sawmill.
This mill is a branch of the B. C.
Mills, Timber & Trading Co., and employs about 250 men, who are now
thrown out of employment. The loss
is in the neighborhood of $500,000, par
tially covered insurance.
Victoria, B. C, Oct 29—The reported
suspension of Magistrate Macrae, by Attorney-General Martin, caused no surprise, this morning. Mr. Martin is said
to have stated, to-day, that Mr. Macrae
has been dismissed, his conduct having

Does Canada Need Prohibition.
Out might fancy from all the agitation
there has been over this question of
Canadian Prohibition that Canada was
a particularly drunken country. On the
contrary, it happily holds a ■most exemplary record. Every Englishman
pays 2 dols. 41 cents (say 10s.) in duty
on alcoh'olic liquors; every Dutchman
pays 2 dols. 81 cents; every citizen of
the United States pays 1 dol. 44 cents,
and every Canadian only 1 dol. 4 cents
(or just over 4s. 2d.) Of wine the Canadian consumption per head is 0.6 gallon;
the British and United States figure is
0.4 each. Of beer the consumpt on per
head.:—Britain , 27.0 gallons; Australia,
12.0; United States, 10.5; Canada, 8.0.
And of spirits:—United States, 1.3;
Australia, 1.0; Canada, 1.0;and Britain,
U.9. The total equivalent in alcohol of
all three works out thus:—Britain, 1.9
gallons per head; United States 1.2;
Australia, 1.2; and Canada,1.0. Canada
thus holds the British record for sobriety
Let her be thankful.—London, England "Outlook."
Would be Helpless.
Paris, October 27.—M. Paul de Cassag-
nac, in a remarkable article on the Fas-
hods* question in the Autorite,   writes:
" How could we make a stand against
England in case of war? She possesses
means of gripping us everywhere in our
colonies and in our naval cities along
our open coasts, whereas we cannot lay
our hands on her anywhere. She would
make short of our fleet. War with England would put us in the position of
Spain toward America. We should fight
heroically but we should be beaten. Our
Admiral Cervera is already to the fore.
It is Admiral Fournier, who enjoys the
blind confidence of the Republican government. It is not, alas, a Santiago
that we should have to pay the bill with
Algeria or Indo-China.
Therefore it is materially and morally
forbidden to think of war. This would
be madness, blindness. Nobody goes to
certain disaster with his eyes open.
There still remains the other alternative
—to beat a retreat, and we shall not escape it. It is not the evacuation of Fas-
hoda that constitutes our loss. The republic, having already committed the
irreparable blunder of coldly abandoning Egypt to England, it ill becomes her
today to quibble about this or that portion of the Kile valley, which in realty
would be useless to us."
In a case which recently came up for
hearing in Scotland a certain witness
was called. On the mention of his
name a man rose up and said: "He's
gone." ''Where is he gone?" said the
judge: "It is his duty to be here." "My
Lord," was the solemn reply, "I wadna
care to commit myself as to whaur he's
gone: but he's dead."
Last Wednesday, W. G. Pollock ex-J.
P., of Thurlow Island, who, in May last,
was sentenced to eighteen months in
the Provincial jail for forging Government vouchers for bounty claims, was
released from custody, he having been
pardoned by His Excellency the Govern
or-General on account of ill health.

In New Premises.
The Vancouver Hardware company,
A. 0. Campbell, manager, has moved
into its handsome new blocks on Hastings street, next to the Harvey Chambers. The building is of imposing
architecture anil is three stories in
height with a basement. The old premises on Cordova street are also heintr
used for the present and a cheap sale ie
being carried on. When the new building is fully occupied, it will he continued

at Nelson. At the new headquarters
every modern facility has been incorporated for expedition in conducting the
businees. The main store is very spacious. The offices are situated on a rahe
elevation and a cash carrying Bystem

every kind of hardware is carried, while
this lirm holds the general agency in
British Columbia for the celebrated E.

department. Elevators run from ihe
basement to the top floor in the building.
In the basement are two floors, which
makes the sti uciure equal to five monster
fiats. The second floor is used as the
stove mantel and grate departments,
while the third floor is to comprise the

security by the petitioner. The Act
provides that it must he paid into the
I>ank of England and Mr. Cassid\ mail -
tained that, the money having been
paid into the registrar of the Supreme
Court, the Act has not been complied
with. Mr. Justice Martin overruled
this objection, on the ground that,
whereas the practice in England was to
pay money for security into the Bank t f
England, in this country the ru'e was to
pay it into the court, and, therefore, the
local conditions governed here. The decision on the other points rai ed against
the petitions was reserved.
The correspondent of the London

the Anglo-Egyptian forces at the battle

while the losses suffered by the Dervishes was put at 15,000 killed, and
probably that number wounded.

Highland Humor.
David Macrea in his Pennyworth of
Highland Humor, includes not a few
"venerable chestnut." but here and
there we find some gcoJ anecdotes such
as this.
SometimiB a ludicrous turn, together
unintentional, is given to a sentence by
the practice—common among Highlanders accustomed to think and speak Gaelic
—of interjecting the world "he" or "she"
where the English does not require it—
as, the man, lie's just away."
A Highland minister was visiting a
brother minster in the south, and was
asked by him to take the Sunday afternoon service for him. The Highland
minister earnestly declined on the
ground that he was unaccustomed how
to preach in English and might blunder.
His friend however would take no refusal. Tne text taken in the afternoon
was I. Peter v. 8: "The devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about seeking whom
he may devour." The highland minister said he would devide the subject into
three heads: "First—Who the devil he
was. Second—Where the devil he was
going. Third—What the devi he was
roaring for." The eft ct of this announcement upon the congregation, and upon
bis friend the minister of the church,
may be conjectured.
