AFTER BUSINESS
Great Northern and C. P. R.,
Will be Strong Competitors.
A BIG FIGHT IS CONING
Heinze Claims Personal Property
Was Not Included in the C. P.
R., Deal.   Other News Notes.
A great struggle between the
Canadian Pacific and the Great
Northern railways for the traffic of
southern British Columbia is now
said to be within the early possibilities, says the Nelson Miner. It has
long been known that Mr. Hill has
had a covetous eye upon this region
and that as a preliminary to occupation of it as a competitor for traffic he purchased from Mr. Corbin
the Spokane & Northern railway.
Now comes the report from Chicago
that the great railway manipulator
is about to extend his railway into
the Crow's Nest Pass country, paralleling the Canadian Pacific
through that district. It is also
said that his intention is to build a
line from the Great Northern's line
at Jennings along the banks of the
Kootenay river to Windetmere
lake. This latter seems improbable
but there is a strong reason for the
Great Northern to somehow get
into the Pass, and that is the great
traffic whicn the coal fields in the
pass'promise. Montana and Washington must have this coal as it can
be laid down much cheaper than
coal from the east. There are two
ways in which the Great Northern
can reach the Pass; one by building
from Great Falls and coming in
from the east and the ocher by
building from Bonner's Ferry in
Idaho, both of which places are on
the main line of the Great Northern,
There is a third way and that is by
connecting the Spokane & Northern with a line running into the
Pass.
But Mr. Hill's intention seems to
be far more ambitious than this. It
is gathered that he aims at having
a line through the Pass and across
the country into the Kettle river
region, and that application! is to be
made to the Dominion parliiment
at its next session for a charter empowering the Great Northern company to construct such a line, It
is scarcely likely that Mr. Hill meditates operations so extended.
What he will apply for, it is probable, is consideration of the Kettle
river charter, refused at the last
session of parliament and the old
fight will be fought over again. It
is not known what line the Canadian Pacific railway will take in op
posing the formidable rivalry which
the Great Northern would establish
should that company secure the
privilege it seeks. Too little is yet
known about the Great Northern's
intentions to form an opinion regarding them, but one thing is certain that the Canadian Pacific company will not relinquish any of the
territory it believes to be within its
control without a stubborn fight.
BIO  LAWSUIT.
F. A. Heinze Brings Action Against
the C. P. R.
A dispatch from Montreal to the
Spokesman Review stated that the
arrival there of Mr. Fitzgerald of
Trail, the representative of F. August Heinze's interests, is the first
step in a big lawsuit which the former magnate of Trail will enter
against the Canadian Pacific Railway. It is stated that the suit will
be for $100,000, which is the alleged value of personal property at
the smelter which Heinze claims he
never  intended to   transfer to the
C. P. R., but which the C. P. R.
tion took and holds in spite of his
claims. The C. P. ?.. people claim
thay bought everything in sight and
paid $800,000 in cash for all of Mr.
Heinze's smelter and railway possessions in the Kootenay town.
The exact nature of the personal
effects which Mr. Heinze values so
highly and for which he seeks remuneration is not stated. The expectation in Montreal is that the
case will develop into a rather sensational suit.
Mr. Heinze's penchant for lawsuits is well known. It is said to
be doubtful if even he can at this
time tell without consulting his attorneys the number of suits he has
in the Butte courts in which he is
either defendant or plaintiff either in
person or through some of hjs numerous corporations. Yet lawsuits
do not seem to make him poor. His
companies are reputed to be among
the most profitable in Butte,

THE  MOUNTAIN  CHIEF.
Force ot Men Now Working In Very
Rich Ore.
Mayor Wallace, J. S. Clute, jr.,
Clayton Miles, T. Prest and D. B.
Bogle returned last night from a
visit to the Mountain Chief mine,
the property of the Golden Gate
company, says the Rossland Leader.
This property lies about two miles
west of Lower Arrow lake on Dog
creek. Work was started on it by
the company two weeks ago. A
surface cut to crosscut the vein resulted in the discovery of a seam of
ore parallel lo the lode already discovered. This ore, which is a massive bornite and copper glance, is
enormously rich in copper and silver values, and abou tthree feetwide.
In running the cut about five tons
of the finest kind of shipping ore
have been taken out. A splendid
collection of this ore is 011 exhibition in the office of W. H, Paul &
Co., and it is admittedly the finest
ore ever displayed in Rossland.
The members of the Golden Gate
company who visited it yesterday
are all satisfied with the great promise of a mine, which the surface
outcrop indicates.      1
A force of men will go to work
early tomorrow under the foreman-
ship of Mike Burns to sink on this
rich ore.
Arrangements are also being
made to ehip ore as soon as snow
comes and it is confidently to be expected that the mine will pay from
the grass roots. Mining, freight
and treatment should be covered
for $11 a ton, leaving a very handsome profit on the ore now being
taken out.
This is the property sold to the
Rossland syndicate by John Stussi
Thomas Alexander, formerly of
Trail.   	
STRUCK BY A SLIDE.
Engine on the Trnll-Robson Road
was Derailed.
Engine 401, which was derailed
by a slide at Blueberry blurt's last
week, has been righted, and after a
few necessary repairs, will be put
in service. The engine, drawing
about fifteen freight cars, was approaching the bluff just as the slide
came. The great mass of earth
just fell from a pocket on the side
hill and struck the engine with such
force as to turn it over. It went
about six feet below the track and
a wrecking crew has been at work
on it all week. Fred Clutterbuck
had his hand badly scalded but there
was fortunately no more serious injuries. Anothet engine came over
from the C. & K. line to do service
until repairs are made.
ABOUT CASCADE
The Busy  City  Is a Hive of
Industry.
LOTS   OP    FREIGHTING
Merchants Have Difficulty In Getting their Stock and Supplies.
New Lines of Business,
Freighting from Brooklyn to Cascade, which has been at the rate of
75 cents per hundred pounds has
been raised to one dollar. There
are probably 100 teams or more on
the road and merchants are complaining because of the great delay
in receiving freight.
The Boundary Stage and Express
Co., are now running a daily express ' from Bossburg through to
Greenwood and also to Republic. It
is a great convenience to business
men desiring to secure goods
quickly. Messrs. Williams & El-
kins, the owners, also run a daily
stage from Cascade to Grand Forks
and return.
Wallace & Miller, of Nelson,
have opened up their branch store
in this city.
The Cascade Record, the new
weekly, has made its appearance.
It is a neat 8-page paper, and has
every indication of prosperity. The
business men of the city are all
pleased to see a live local paper in
their midst,
A week ago last Sunday, Albert
Lamb and Sterling Harklerode had
an unpleasantness at one of the local sawmills, the latter getting the
worst of it. A few days later
Harklerode died at the hospital and
Lamb was arrested at Grand Forks.
The coroner's jury decided that
death was due to natural causes���
pneumonia. Yesterday the charge
against Lamb was changed to assault and he was sentenced to two
months in jail.
There are now thirteen hotels in
the city, most of which are already
open.
A gang of men are at work on
the water power at the Cascades
and Kettle river, doing the preliminary work for improving and delivering the same. The power is
owned by an English syndicate of
ample means, and it will doubtless
aid materially in building up the
city.
Brick is decidedly scarce commodity in this city at present. There
has been quite a demand for it.
New concerns are starting up in
town almost every day, and nearly
every line is represented. Every
store is doing a good business,
having all they can attend to. Several new firms will open here in 11
short time.
NEW STAGE LINE.
Has Begun Regular Trips to Cascade,
Robert Wills, a veteran stage
driver, has begun the operation of
his new stage between Brooklyn
and Cascade Cily. Some lime
since a stage started on the route,
but was drawn off after a lew trips,
as the proprietors had another
opening. Mr. Wills stated to the
News man that he would run a
light but very strong and well built
wagon, making regular trips between the two cities. He has also
ordered a comfortable three-seated
sleigh and will make the trip in a
single day. Mr. Wills has plenty
ol teams for the line and will leave
nothing undone for the accommodation  and  comfort of   his  patrons.
The stage will start from the
Anderson house in this city.

2  CONSTRUCTION NOTES.   *
Property owners at the north fork
of Kettle river, where W, H. Fisher
has men employed on his contract
to furnish 70,000 tics to the railway contractors, have notified him
to stop, they claiming ownership of
the land.
The contract for hauling railway
supplies from Bossburg to Cascade
has been let to Mitchell Bros., the
well known freighters, and is for
6000 tons. This work gives their
thirty odd four horse teams all they
can do to get the 6000 tons contracted for over the road.
Jack Hastings has eighty men at
work on his one-mile contract. It
is nearly all rock work, and the
camp is located near where the tote
road reaches Christina lake. He
has not had a serious case of sickness nor an accident since he
started in.
Contractor McDonell of the firm
of Foss & McDonell, who has another contract of two miles out
toward Greenwood, states that he
has 200 men at work, and has established winter quarters. His
work includes a 600-foot tunnel,
which will be driven by hand drilling.
More of the forged time checks
have turned up, purporting to be
signed by Mr. McAlphin, bookkeeper for Pat. Welch. Rumors
have been current that the clumsy
forger had been apprehended, but
no verification of it could be had.
On his contract out near the new
town of Niagara, Pat. Welch has
built winter quarters, it is said for
1000 men.
Mall Hours.

SLOCAN EDITORS IN LIMAO.
Why the Sandon Paystreak Lives
In Harmony with its Name.
The Slocan is a hard place upon
newspaper men. The climate
causes such a keen appetite that it
is difficult to keep it in subjection.
There arc no farmers in the country to bring in turnips, pork, squash
and other agricultural luxuries for
subscriptions. The dealer in wood
has no conscience and everything
plays the limit in price. The people are indifferent to local papers.
Most of them do not care whether
they have a paper in their midst or
not. A few are public-spirited
enough to assist the press, while
the rest Imagine that editors live on
ozone and water. If the Slocan
people were to become imbued with
a more generous spirit toward their
local press the outside world could
be touched for untold thousands in
the way of investments. A country
is judged on the outside by its
papers. If they arc fat and well
dressed with live ads the folks at
a distance naturally infer that the
people supporting them arc enterprising and up-to-date. If, on the
other hand, they are lean and
marked with the strain of poverty,
a corresponding effect goes with
them. It would be better for a
community to kill all its half, starved
rags than to have them go out to
the world looking as though their
editors lived on the sweat of cookhouse windows and slept in ash
barrels.���Sandon Paystreak,

NO LIKELIHOOD OF CHANGE
Some busybodies, who might be
in better business, have been circulating reports to the effect that
the head offices of the railway contractors were likely to be moved
from Brooklyn soon to some point
along the line. Of course, the idea
conveyed by such a statement was
that the work of construction was
in a sufficiently advanced stage to
warrant the contractors in moving
their headquarters at once lo Cascade City or elsewhere.
Now, what are the facts? A few
sub-contractors, mostly those who
had small pieces of work done along
Lower Arrow lake, have finished
and moved on, taking new work.
But they were those who have had
some months to put in on their contracts���since July. As a mutter of
lact, there is a vast quantity of
work yet to be done within a few
miles of Brooklyn, which will require a 1 ong time to accomplish.
Consequently, it stands to reason
that no change will be made for the
present in the location of the headquarters.
In addition to this the News man
has taken occasion to interview the
powers that be in regard to the
matter in question, and has been
assured that, for some time to come,
there is no thought of  a change.
This should be conclusive and satisfactory to the business men of busy
Brooklyn.
DURING the last week our friends
across the border have been in the
throes o( an election. Here in British Columbia we can sympathize
with them, for we know how it is
ourselves. In both cases the business of the country goes on just the
same, politicians .to the contrary
notwithstanding.
Rossland wants prohibition, the
Crow's Nest Pass railway, the monopoly of the meat trade, a school of
mines, and everything else that may
be worth having, says an exchange.
Well, while there's life there's hope.
��� ���
J      THE OBSERVATORY.      g
��� ���
The violent deatli of John Olson
last week, on Pat. Welch's work on
Lower Arrow Lake, was blamable
only to his own foolhardiness. He
knew the dangerous nature of his
work perfectly, and yet he unnecs-
sarily took the chance and lost his
life as a result. There was no necessity, either, for his .doing this;
he could have waited a little longer
rather than tinker with the loaded
hole where danger and death lurked.
��� ������
But this man Olson was probably but a type of thousands of other men employed on railway work.
Because they have seen a blast or
two set off, they imagine they know
all about it, and that no one can
give them pointers. As a result, in
their real ignorance, they take
chances that they have no business
to, and olten endanger the lives of
others as well as their own. If
only their own lives were in danger
it would not be so bad, though that
is serious enough.
��� * *
"Some of these men take great
chances," said Contractor Jack Hastings to the Observer, while chatting along these lines. "One
trouble is," lie continued, "that
men, even when used to handling
powder, get so accustomed to it
that they do not use the same care
as when they set off a blast the first
time. It passes comprehension how
utterly regardless of their own safety they will become."
By the way, it is quite a noteworthy fact that Mr. Hastings has
been one of the most fortunate of
all the sub-contractors on the line,
in regard to accidents and casual-
hies. At his camp of 80 men, located some 32 miles from Brooklyn,
where the tote road reaches Chris-
t'.na lake, he has not had a single
accident or serious case of sickness.
This is indeed a remarkable record,
and one that it  would be  hard to
beat.
��� ��� ���
Readers of the News have doubtless noticed that the copper properties on BuIl^Dog mountain, close
to Brooklyn, are receiving a good
deal of intention from mining men
this fall. Some of the samples of
ore on exhibition in this city arc
beautiful specimens ol peacock copper and excite the admiration of nil
who sec them. Many have declared them equal to the ore from
the famous Silver King mine, located on Toad mountain, back of
Nelson.
