THE PROSPECTOR
VOL. 3, NO. 27
LILLOOET,   B. C, FRIDAY,   MAY 1, 1914.
$2 PER YEAR
HAPPY DAYS.
LOCAL AND GENERAL ITEMS.
Police court affairs   are   still
very slack,  and tall grass now
adorns the approach to the court's I
front door.    Quite a change has I
taken place since last fall.   Oc-1
casionally a big Swede, in passing j
by, will recall to memory some j
big fines he has paid, and mutter
some bad words—for the benefit
of himself and the police.   Likewise some misguided Indian lady
expresses herself in forcible and
appropriate Chinook as she recognizes the old court house door,
and bemoans the good money she
has paid the provincial government for her past intemperance.
All gone—gone into the coffers
of the government,  a portion of
which will go up in the smoke of
big fat cigars when the constable
receives his monthly stipend.
A TALL STICK.
Mr. H. R. MacMillan, the Chief
Forester of theH Provincial Government, said that he hoped the
difficulty of transporting the 250
foot flagpole, which the Province
is presenting to the Kew Gardens
in PJngland, had now been overcome and that a shipping company had been found to undertake the task of delivering this
huge stick to an English port.
The dimentions of such a flagpole will necessitate its being
carried as part of a deck cargo.
At one time fears were entertained that it miiiht be found necessary to cu it in two and splice
it on erection at Kew.
The following facts that led up
to the presentation of this pole
were gleaned in an interview
with Mr. MacMillan.
More than half a century ago,
in the year which saw the opening of the great American Civil
War, there was erected in Kew
Arboretum a flagpole which has
since remained one of the most
conspicuous landmarks of the
neighborhood.
It was the second of two spars
pi*esented with great public spirit
by Captain Edward Stamp, and
was made from a British Columbian fir. The age of the tree
from which it was cut was about
250 years, and its total height
, lfcO, feet. ,It was broken in the
course of erection, I at is believed
to be the tallest spar in the whole
world.
As long ago as last October Mr.
Turner,, the Agent-General for
British Columbia, had written to
the Premier suggesting that a
really good specimen of a British
Columbia tree should be obtained
for a flagstaff and shipped to
London. The intention was then
to have this erected in one of the
London parks, but when the loss
of the famous Kew flagstaff became known, it was decided to
offer to replace it. It is hoped
that a spar 250 feet in height can
be obtained having a minimum
diameter at the top of at least
twelve inches. This would be
larger than the pole recently erected in Vancouvei'j and the tallest
flagstaff in the "world.
The new flagst&g should immediately take a foremost place a-
mong the sights of Kew Gardens,
and be an object of interest and
pride to all British Columbians,
while, at the same time, the advertisement given to the timber
wealth of the province will be
considerable.
Freighting on the Lytton-Lillo-
et road is quite heavy these fine
days.
Mr. P. LeMare, of the Forestry
Department, made an official trip
to Sicamous Junction this week.
A new and complete line of
ladies' and gents' American shoes
just opened up at Phair's.
Good progress is being made
with construction work on the
North Fork road. Foreman McLeod has about 17 men at work.
Some rich-looking ore has just
arrived from the Blackwater district, taken from claims owned
by Messrs. Keeley and Palmer.
Fred Kinder has started development work on his mineral
claims adjoining the "Why Not"
property, Bridge river.
Grant White arrived in town
last Tuesday, from Tyauchton,
and reports everything in good
shape on the upper Bridge river.
Another mine that is favorably
spoken of is that of Wm. Keddy,
located in the Pemberton country. It is a large property and
some of the assays are very high.
Asocial and dance was held in
Globe Hall, Lytton on Wednesday
evening. There was a Rood attendance, everybody spent a very
pleasant evening.
There is now a good opening
for auto traffic on the Bridge
River road. There seems to be
plenty of trade for at least one
machine.
From present indications the
Horseshoe Bend placer ground,
on Bridge River, will once more
be in active operation this summer.
Spring salmon have already
made their appearance in the
Fraser, and Lillooet Indians are
making a few dollars supplying
the local market.
Wm. Cairns, chartered accountant of Vancouver, is on a business trip to Lillooet, and is loud
in his praise of our little town
and its climate.
Mrs. Nellie Dupras has now a
very commodious and handsome
ice-cream parlor, where everything choice in the refreshment
and fruit line can be obtained.
Call and be convinced.
.■
| A traveler over the Bridge
i River road reports it now in ex-
j cellent condition, and that ranch-
jers throughout the valley are
'making great improvements on
i their properties.
J. K. More, road superintendent, was in town for several days
! this week, arranging work for
several road parties. He proceeded to Pemberton Meadows
on a similar errand.
Services will be held in the
Lillooet Methodist Church on
Sunday, May 3, at 11 o'clock in
the morning and at 7:30 in the
evening. In afternoon church
services will be held at Cayoosh
Creek, at 3 o'clock.
According to reports, William
Haylmore has just about completed his development work on
the "Why Not" mineral claim
Andy Meehans, formerly of
Butte, Montana, is now at the
Broken Hill mine, and during the
absence of Mr. J. Hunt, will hav«
full control of the works.
ANOTHER BIG STRIKE.
Rev. Father Rohr, of St. Mary's
Mission, arrived in Lillooet yesterday and received a most enthusiastic welcome from his old
friends.
About half a ton of ore will
arrive in town on Monday, from
the Broken Hill mine, and will
be sent to the coast for a test as
to the best method of treatment.
When this is obtained, work on
the mine will proceed on a large
scale.
Supt. John Hunt arrived from
the Broken Hill mine on Wednesday, and today will meet half a
dozen mining men who are coming from Vancouver. Tomorrow
they will proceed to the Broken
Hill property for an inspection.
They are all men of prominence
in mining circles.
A full line of fishing tackle at
Phair's.
Miners declare that the estimate is a sane one that within a
very few years the total annual
value of the mineral output of
British Columbia will reach $100,
000,000. One hundred million
dollars per year looks like a pretty
big estimate, but as the output
is already $30,000,000 per year the
prediction is not impossible of
fulfilment.
Phair's have just received a
complete stock of Lowe's famous
mixed paints, varnishes, &c.
Mrs. C. P. Dam, after a short
absence from the South Fork of
Bridge River, arrived in Lillooet
this week and proceeded to the
Golden Dream mining camp to
rejoin her husband. Mrs. Dam
spent the whole of last winter
on the Bridge River, coming out
a short time ago through four
feet of snow.
A fresh supply of Lowney's
Chocolates every week, at Phair's
Lillooet has a new chief constable, Wm. Spiller arriving from
the 150-Mile House to fill the
vacancy created by the departure
of Frank Aiken for the Arctic
regions. In all probability Mr.
Spiller will permanently reside
here. He comes well recommended, and so far as we have
been able to find out, a man well
able to paddle his own canoe.
James McAdam, who was so
unfortunate as to lose a leg last
winter, is now a full-fledged
farmer up in Fountain valley, and
doing well. A short time ago
his partner cut down a bull pine
tree, whittled out a section of it
to suit Jim's needs, and now has
him in almost as active a condition as when he followed the life
of a miner.
A ten gallon keg of beer mysteriously disappeared from the
Excelsior Hotel cellar the other
day. The hotel detective was
put on the case and in a very
short time located the barrel on
Mose Foster's ranch. Mr. Foster
is not much of a drinking man,
so there is no suspicion attached
to him, but the Excelsior man is
not satisfied, and with the assistance of the police, will have somebody arrested before long.
In Great Britain last year patents were applied for in respect
of about 30,000 articles; 400 applications were made by women.
Mysterious Dan Hamilton and
his partner, H. Taylor, started
out on a prospecting trip a few
weeks ago, and it now transpires
that they have made a big strike
adjacent to the Broken Hill property. The ore is similar in
character and evidently on the
same lead as the Broken Hill
people are now operating. Hamilton arrived in town to record
his claims on Wednesday, and
will probably return to Bridge
River tomorrow.
WILL TAKE A REST.
After about a year's hard work
under very adverse circumstances
and facing financial difficulties
that only mining men have to
feel, in trying to develop a mine
—making trips to the east and
stepping over Mission mountain
so many times that even the goats
seem to know him now—Mr. J.
Hunt has succeeded in getting
the Broken Hill mine in such a
satisfactory state of development
and financial standing that he is
about to take a well-deserved
holiday for about a month. Mr.
Hunt will probably take a trip to
the border line of Mexico and
watch the entertainment provided
by Uncle Sam and Huerta.
INDIAN COMMISSION.
That the Indian Commission is
all ready to resume its travels
throughout the province to inquire into the subject of Indian
.eserves and the conditions of
the various tribes, was the statement made by Mr. W. E. Ditth-
burn, inspector of Indian agencies. Next week they will travel
up the Fraser and inspect reserves, after which they will go
up the west coast of Vancouver
Island where there is a large
number of reserves and an Indian
population of at least 1800.
CHANGE IN MANAGEMENT.
With this issue of the Prospector the undersigned resigns
its management, having engaged
in other business. Mr. Ludwig,
formerly connected with this
paper, will in future have its
entire management, and it is our
earnest hope that he will meet
with the same courtesy in this
district as it was our fortune to
experience during the past year.

MAY 1.   1914.
Detailed plans of the route of
the Pacific, Peace River & Athabasca Railway, for which a charter has recently been granted by
the Dominion Government, show
that a vast extent of territory in
the northern section of British
Columbia will be opened up by
the proposed line.
The discovery of gold at Beaver
Lake in the Prince Albert district
and pronounced by experienced
prospectors as one of the world's
richest finds, has aroused widespread interest, and wealth-seekers from every portion of the
continent are pouring in. A
thousand claims and powers of
attorney have been registered at
the Dominion Land Office, and
large numbers are awaiting the
opening of river navigation to
proceed to the gold fields. The
attention of the Dominion authorities has been drawn to the large
influx of prospectors, and the
government has sent out surveyors to report on the feasibility of
constructing a road from Prince
Albert to Beaver Lake, 100 miles
of which is completed. A geological survey is also to be made
of the district during the summer.
settlement of Lund, situated 90
miles from Vancouver, will be
opened to settlement. On the
18th inst two large tracts of land
in the Salmon River Valley, Vancouver Island, a district in which
settlement is advancing rapidly,
will also be open for pre-emption.
The largest of the many areas to
be opened to settlement in the
near future are those on the
South Fork of the Frase'r River.
These lands will be open for settlement on June 15th.
According to a circular just
issued by the Provincial Board
of Health, hydrophobia has, for
the first time, made its appearance amongst the dogs of British
Columbia. Cowichan is the first
district in which the disease was
detected, and two suspicious cases
were recently discovered at Mission City. The disease has appeared in Oregon, and possibly
in the State of Washington as
well. As the period of incubation
of rabies is prolonged, the extent
of the infection is not yet apparent, so it is incumbent upon all
to be on the look-out for further
outbreaks. The Dominion Veterinary Department is handling
this so far as animals are concerned, but the Provincial Board
of Health is anxious to be informed as to any suspicious cases
which may appear, and is prepared to forward, at any time,
complete treatment for hydrophobia, which must be administered to the person as soon as
possible after being bitten,which
is some weeks before symptoms
develop. The treatment can be
administered by any local practitioner.
