The following example uses the BeginsWith element within a string that is assigned to the Query property to return the titles of items within a list where a Journal column begins with "City".

SPWeb mySite = SPControl.GetContextWeb(Context);

SPList list = mySite.Lists["List_Name"];

SPQuery query = new SPQuery();
query.Query = "<Where><BeginsWith><FieldRef Name="Journal"/>" + 
   "<Value Type="Note">City</Value></BeginsWith></Where>";

SPListItemCollection myItems = list.GetItems(query);

foreach (SPListItem item in myItems)
   Label1.Text += item["Title"] + "<BR>";
