TRIP TO CASCADE
Pencil   Pusher of the "News"
Views the Work.
IS ALL WELL  IN  HAND
Construction Line Is n Busy Scene
ot Activity Prom One End to
the Other ��� Good Stopping
Places.
Riding in a driving rain, snow,
sleet and hail storm, on the hurricane deck of a cayuse that is in ho
hurry, across the Gold Range of
mountains, may be a source of
pleasure to some, but the quill driver from the editorial force of the
News, who was detailed for this
put pose this week, did not see it in
that light.
The trip from Brooklyn to Cascade over the tote road was taken
for the purpose of giving the readers
of this widely circulated family
journal an idea of the progress and
general conditions along the line of
railway construction. Starting early in the afternoon, with the intention of making the Divide by dark,
the ascent of the long line was
begun. Little evidence of work
can be seen till McLean Bros, camp
at the long tunnel is reached, the
branch roads to Twohy's and Nu-
gent's camps having been passed.
At the tunnel the switchbacks have
been about completed, and the tote
road crosses them so many times
that it is like a.Chinese puzzle to
the layman. Preparations are being
made here for the 14-drill air compressor, to be installed by November 1st.
Going down the hill from here for
two or three miles the traveller
comes to Cotton's hotel, now owned
by John A. McMillan, who is building a stable for accommodation of
teams. The next stop is the Porcupine hotel, where Ennis and Bolan
have substantial buildings and cater
to a large trade. From Porcupine
creek is a long up-hill pull to the
Divide hotel of so e seven miles,
but on arriving there genial Ed,
Graham and his brother Jim are
found ready to cater to all wants of
man and beast in the most acceptable way. The house is a two
storey structure, well built, with
good stabling for twenty teams. It
is a favorite with the freighters on
the road and enjoys a fine patronage.
Evidences of work on the construction are now getting more and
more plentiful, and the creak of the
wheelbarrow, the sound of the drilling and the deep detonations of
many blasts show that railroad
building is going on with all possible speed.
Leaving the Divide hotel early in
the frosty morning, some 4,000 feet
in the air, we soon came to Andy
Cumming's Summit House, which is
also a stopping place well' patronized by travellers. Continuing on
the now well worn- tote road, and
passing dozeps of four-horse teams,
we go down and then up, and finally
reach Scotty Donaldson's hotel,
rapidly Hearing completion. After
a long down-hill ride, the little
settlement at McPherson Bros, and
Stout's new saw mill is found, and
a busy place it is, with a couple of
stores, a tent with red curtains, and
other things too numerous to
mention.
From here there is a long ascent
of several miles, and then down
again, following the valley of Mc-
Rae creek to Christina lake. Work
of station men can be seen in spots
and the booming of blasts is frequent until we get to the new and
brisk little town of Gladstone,  34
miles away, where Messrs, Dorsey
and Wisner run the now well known
Hotel Gladstone in a most successful manner. The house is 30x40,
two and a half stories high, and is
entirely built of hewn cedar, being
well fitted and furnished for the
purpose intended. Quite a number
of lots have been sold, there being
two good general stores and a third
preparing to open, with a bakery
and restaurant. Two mine hotels
are to be put up as soon as lumber
can be had.
Leaving our hosts, after an excellent midday meal, we pull out for
Cascade, 19 miles away. The road
now begins to improve perceptively,
being less hilly and rocky. We
have passed Olsen's and McLean
Bros.' second work, and now come
to the big camp of J, G. McLean
and Co , which, by the way, is a
model among railway camps. After
leaving this hospitable settlement
the road winds among immense
cedars, majestic in their grandeur,
and in a few more miles the shining,
glistening waters of the lake are
seen through the trees. Rod Cameron's, Jack Hasting's and Arthur
Murdoch's camps are passed in
rapid succession, and we push on
down the 8 miles of splendid road
along Christina lake to Cascade
City. This bustling place was
reached about 7 o'clock, where we
were made at home by C. H.
Thomas, the capable host at the
Cascade hotel, the oldest hotel in
the place.
The return trip was made in a
day, although at this season of the
year the roads are getting worse
daily, and snow can already be
found plentiful on the divide.
The general progress on nearly
all th. contracts has been excellent,
but there is an immense amount of
rock cutting still to be done, that
will undoubtedly take many months
to complete.
There are no less than ten road
houses between Brooklyn and Cascade, which are run by enterprising
proprietors as a rule. Among them
are Cotton's, the 14-Mile House,
Porcupine Hotel, Divide Hotel,
Summit House and Hotel Gladstone, whose cards can be found on
the last page of the News. Any
one of them are able to take care of
the weary traveller in the best possible manner.
ABOUT CASCADE CITY.
News Notes From the Christina
Lake Metropolis.
The contractors' hospital was finished this week, and now has four
patients, the capacity being 60,
The Cosmopolitan hotel was
opened this week by A. Branson,
and is already doing a good business, like ull the others in town.
Ira Black, W. J. Ross, Mr, Stein-
strom and Westluud & Swenson
will soon open their hotels to the
public. McDonald and Flood
opened the Metropolitan last week.
Pat Welch has the railway contract just east of town, being now
actively at work, and Contractor
Snndgrin has work through the
city. Fires light up the right-of-
way each night.
The Dominion Mining, Development & Agency Co., are expected
to begin the development of the fine
water power at this place very
shortly. About 4000-horse power
will be utilized at once, which will
be delivered in desired amount to
the various surrounding camps and
in the Boundary country. This is
expected to be. a great thing for
fhis section of the country.
The steam yacht Myrtle B.,
which was erroneously reported as
sunk by some one with a lively imagination from Grand Forks, is
still merrily plowing the blue water
of Christina lake, and doing an increasingly large business.
This city is growing steadily.
Strangers are daily comirg in and
notwithstanding the increase in
number of hotels, it is often difficult to secure a bed in the evening.
Besides the several hotels, there are
two general stores, two chophouses,
two restaurants, two barber shops,
two livery stables, two fruit and
news stands, etc. All are doing a
good business. The business at the
post-office has doubled in a short
time, there now being two full sacks
of mail matter received and dispatched daily.
H. L. Moody, of Spokane, who
owns the townsite on the lake, is
building an office in the city on the
main street.
A project is on foot to dam up
Keith river eight feet at this point
and make the water of Christina
lake navigable to this city. This
will doubtless be done, and
will greatly benefit this place.
The new wagon road between
here aad Brooklyn, is a great convenience and is being used by a
large number of travelers each way
daily. Some of our merchants have
ordered goods to come that way,
and if freights were reduced many
more would doubtless do so.
Post Office Is Open.
Postmaster Livingston opened up
the postoffice, as ordered by the
the Government, in his store today.
Call boxes have been conveniently
arranged and can be secured at the
rate of $1.00 per month. There will
be no lock boxes for the present.
Locked mail bags will be dispatched
to and received from Revelstoke,
Rossland and Nelson daily.
Saw Mill Started.
The first whistle of McPherson
Bros, and Stout's new saw mill,
located 19 miles out on the tote
road, was sounded last Sunday, and
the plant is now in full swing. It
has a capacity of 50,000 feet every
24 hours, and will be moved to
Gladstone in about a month's time.
Our New School.
Secretary Bolan, of the new
school board, has received word
from Supt. Pope that a teacher has
been selected and will be ready to
open school early in October, The
trustees have secured a building and
expect to have the school started in
a short time,
Requires 780,000 Feet.
Of the estimated 14,000,000 feet
of timber to be used in the bridges
on the railway construction from
Robson to Midway, over 750,000
feet are required for the bridge over
Moberly creek, at Shield's Landing,
alone. This bridge is to be tkio
feet from grade to grade, the big
span being 150 feet long and 195
feet high. There are already 500,-
000 feet of lumber ready, cut by
Genelle's two mills���at Nakusp and
Robson���and the putting in of the
false work is well under way,
Accommodation  New Westminster
Exposition.
Parties attending the New Westminster Exhibition, if unable to get
accommodation at New Westminster, can do so with little difficulty
in Vancouver, In order to facilitate
the movement to and from the exhibition the Canadian Pacific railway will run seven fust trains in
each direction between Vancouver
and New Westminster, the run to
occupy less than one hour in each
direction, with a fifty cent fare for
the round trip, this rate being available from Vancouver and New
Westminster.
The Brooklyn Nkws is prepared
to furnish the best in the world���

and general office stationery, Bring

heads, cards, tags, and in fact,
anything made with ink and paper
HAS 200000 TONS
Tunnels on New Railway Contain  That Much Rock
OR 66,000 CUBIC YARDS
Seven Bores, 21x16 Feet Each, oa
the Line, are Approximately
83,000 Feet In Length.
Few persons realize the vast
amount of rock to be removed in
the construction of the Robson-
Penticton branch of the Columbia
and Western railway. The estimated cost of $4,000,000 for the
105 miles of construction, or nearly
$40,000 per mile on an average,
gives some idea, but one must look
more into the details, which the
general public rarely hears, to fully
understand it. These have been
secured by the News. Between
Brooklyn and Robson alone, it is
said that 1,700,000 cubic yards of
rock must be displaced, including
tunnels, before rails can be laid.
A large part of the general rock
work is in the seven' or more tunnels on the line. The first of these
is at Hanson's camp, five miles from
Brooklyn. This bore will be, when
finished, but 200 feet in length. The
second one is that being done by
Jack O'Leary at Shield's landing,
and is 300 feet in length. Of this,
75 feet have been done thus far.
The third is that of Burns and Jordan, about 350 feet long, located
some four miles below Brooklyn.
Four miles west from Brooklyn
comes the fourth and largest tunnel,
over 3,000 feet in length, under
contract to McLean Bros., and
which will take a year to complete.
Power drills will be used, which are
expected to be shipped from eastern
Canada by the Rand Drill Co. today, (Oct. tst), and to be installed
and running at both j>nds in a
month's time. This contract will
give steady employment to quite a
force of men for many months to
come.
No. 5 tunnel is Olsen's, 36 miles
from Robson, and 23 miles from
Brooklyn over the tote road. It is
700 feet long. This, like the smaller ones, is being done entirely by
hand, which of itself is a big job.
There are no more bores till eight
miles the other side of Grand Forks,
towards Greenwood. Here there
are two tunnels, each being between
300 and 400 feet in length. From
Greenwood to Midway no more
tunnels arc encountered and the
contractors have comparatively
plain sailing.
Each of these tunnels must be 16
feet wide and 31 feet high. A little
calculation will show the tremendous amount of the hardest kind of
syenite rock that must be taken
out. In all there arc approximately
5,300 feet of tunnels on the line,
requiring the removal of 1,784,160
cubic feet, or over 66,000 cubit-
yards of rocd, or about 200,000
tons. The only contract on the line
where power drills are to be used is
that of McLean Bros, near Brooklyn.
In another article soon, the News
will tell something about the bridges
that will be constructed on this line,
which it is believed will make interesting reading.
No Plebiscite Here.
Owing to the fact that the ballot
box did not arrive, no voting was
hud on Thursday, as previously
scheduled, on the Prohibition plebiscite. Quite a number applied lo
Deputy Returning Officer Livingston to vole, but could not be
accommodated.

FUTURE IS BRIGHT.
A few���very few���individuals are
returning from the Klondike with a
rich reward for their privations and
stick-to.Itive-ness, Many thousands
however, are daily anathematising
the day that I hey first heard of the
frojjen Eldorado, and allowed themselves lo be persuaded that they
would be the lucky ones. Vast
riches there undoubtedly are yet in
that ice-bound region, hut the
chances of getting even a small
portion of them, to the average
man, are infinitesimal.
Countless columns of warning
have been written on this subject,
but to a great extent it was of no
avail, it is the old story over again.
Men are like sheep���the entire flock
will follow the leader over a brink
to certain destruction. We have
seen or read but a tithe of the suffering already brought on by this
crazy rush.
Had the gold seekers who rushed
north in their frenzy after wealth,
little realizing what they had to
encounter, put even a part of the
money thus spent into prospecting
or developing the Kootenays, the
whole world would have been the
great   gainer,   and   thousands  of
h.-mes would  not be   broken   up.
I E en  in th?   Arrow   lake   region,
around Brooklyn,   where comparatively little has yet been done along
; this line, it has   been   ascertained
! that the same mineral   belts that
have proven so profitable   to   the
! south of us extend.
I     There is a m"ral in all  this that
I it is believed will be  heeded  in the
future.    Even now observant  men
can see signs of returning sanity as
regards Klondike views, and Kootenay will undoubtedly benefit by it.
CATCHING ON AT LAST.
The Victoria Colonist says : "It
took nine, eight and seven days respectively for three letters to reach
Whitewater, B. C, from Victoria,
although there is supposed to ' be a
daily mail to that mining town.
Now, the question is, where does
this service delay in transmission of
letters to Kootenay points occur ?
Is it in Victoria, en route, or at
Kaslo or Whitewater ? It would be
well if the post office inspector
would look into the matter."
It is quite evident that.the Colonist man is a novice to the mail service of the Kootenays. When he
has the experience of having an important letter exactly 14 days on
the way from Nelson to Brooklyn,
he will think the case he refers to is
not as bad as it might be. And
cases as aggravating, too numerous
to mention, could be cited here,
were it not such an old' story in this
section. The fact is that, generally
speaking, the Dominion Government has shamefully neglected the
Kootenays in the matter of adequate
mail facilities. Where the fault lies
is a question, but the facts are
easily proved.
New phases of the far eastern
question���far western would be
nearer correct fo this portion of the
hemisphere���come up almost daily.
The latest is the resigning of the
throne by the Emperor of China in
favor of his mother, the dowager
empress. This appears to mean
that Li Hung Chang will be restored to power. It is well known that.
Mr. Li leans quite perceptively towards the Russian bear, which fact
is likely to lead to interesting and
important complications.
It would not have been a bad
plan, from their point of view, had
the friends of the prohibition plebiscite given more publicity to the
fact that non-treating clubs have
been started in the United States,.
They originated as a joke, but are
becoming very popular. Every
member promises never to ask another member to take a drink, and
wears a button for purposes of identification. It is said that commercial travelers are taking hold of the
matter very ardently.
Today was Brooklyn's first experience with a genuine, simon-
pure post-office���the real article,
It is needless to state that the innovation will be appreciated by everyone, and that it will do a large
business, The useful soap and
cracker boxes that have seen so
much service have been discarded,
and hereafter Postmaster Livingston's smiling face will be found behind the newly arranged tier of
boxes.
The Spanish generals and admirals who were knocked out by the
Yankees in the late war, are one by
one getting back to their fatherland,
and are being kept extremely busy
telling their friends and others���the
lattei being in the great majority-
how it all came about, An American would say, as did an English
officer, that "it was the men behind
the guns."
According ts the published reports, Nelson contributed $500 and
Rossland $5,000 to the relief of the
New Westminster fire sufferers.
Possibly there is some explanation
of why the Rosslanders are ten
times as generous as the Nelsonites.
If so, it would be interesting to
hear it.
His Opaque Vision.
The Kaslo Kootenaian conducts a
column entitled Borrowed Wit.     It
says: "Editors of exchanges are invited to send us marked paragraphs,
as we find difficulty in detecting wit
in the papers of the northwest."
The Kootenaian's "wit" man must
be possessed of an abnormally
opaque vision or he would be able
to detect the wit in the humorous
effusions of Bob Lowery and the
poetic productions of D. R. Young.
���Moyie City Leader.
Fled Before the Enemy.
"Let me kiss your Dewey lips,"
urged the youth in the parlor.
"Young man," roared a voice
from above, "the bombardment will
open as soon as I get down stairs."
Then the hapless youngster organized himself into a flying squadron and made a fleet disappearance.

I     THE OBSERVATORY.      \
It is a pity that the C. P. R, cannot arrange some plan by which the
northbound steamboats will arrive
at Brooklyn at some comparatively
definite hour. As it is, they get in
all the way from 12-30 to 7 a. m.,
and a worse or more inconvenient
arrangement would be difficult to
conceive of. If it were made at
either one or the other, of these
hours, or between them, travelers
could.plan accordingly. As it is, it
is beyond the power of man���to say
nothing of the C. P. R. agents���to
tell when they will arrive here. The
Observer would suggest to Commodore Troup that he will call down
many a blessing on his own head if
he will take the matter in hand.
The .writer is neither a railroad nor
a steamboat man, but he'll hazard
the guess that if the matter is arranged so as to accommodate the
traveling public, he will get his reward in due: time.
��� ��� ���
As a rule the people of this community are too busy at the trade ot
making money���and most of them
are successful, it must be admitted
���to stop long enough to took
around them and note what a really
desirable location this is. With a
vista far up and down Lower Arrow
lake, the sun-kissed peaks almost
touching the skies in many places,
a sunrise on some of these beautiful
autumn mornings is worth losing a
little sleep to witness. This may
seem commonplace to some of our
money-making readers, but there is
a great deal in it, just the same, If
there is a more favored spot on the
footstool, in the way of magnificent
scenery, than can be found in the
Kootenays, we have yet to see it.
And Lower Arrow lake has its full
share.
��� 4 ���
But it should not be overlooked
by our people that this is only what
is known as an "assisted" school.
That is, the province assists it by
paying the teacher's salary and giving a small sum, $40, towards expenses. This, however, does not
begin to be sufficient to meet the
running expenses, small though
they undoubtedly will be. The Observer feels confident that when the
Board of Trustees appeal for the
funds needed, they will be forthcoming and will be cheerfully given.
��� ��� ���
"The doctors at the hospital here
cannot treat you good enough.
They'll.do anything for you and do
il quick," said a convalescent to the
Observer last week. And there
was no mistaking the man's sincerity. He had tried the institution
and knew whereof he spoke. The
hospital referred to is. of course,
that located here by the railway
contractors, Messrs. Mann, Foley
Bros, and Larson, the physicians
being Drs, Ewing and Dutton.
"Do you know, I am certain this
will be a good town all winter, and
until way on into the spring," said
a well known.contractor to the Observer, "The work is not going to
be finished as soon as anticipated,
by a good deal, and besides that,
the great demand lor steel will delay the laying of the rails to some
extent. The iron for the Crow's
Nest line was ordered nearly a year
ago, and yet they have had to wait
several times for it."
��� ��� ���
In view of the fact���and it is undoubtedly a fact���that the tendency
now-a-days is to speak in .:v derogatory way of large concerns or corporations, the Observer w is particularly pleased to hear this voluntary
testimony, and takes equal pleasure
in passing it along for the benefit
of all���including skeptics and pessimists in general.
��� -f. ���
More than one person has spoken
approvingly to the Observer of the
successful effort being made to have
a public school started in this city.
As will be noted in another column,
Supt. Pope has already billeted a
teacher here, and in a very short
time the school will be in full running order.
"This last week has been the
best one since I have been in business," a local merchant remarked
to the Observer last Sunday, "and
I fully expect it to continue. In
fact, I see no reason why it should
not, but rather to the contrary."
* * *
These two opinions   are   pretty
good indexes of the  prospects and
general aspect of business in busy
Brooklyn today and for the future.

SAYS BULL DOG IS ALL RIGHT.
EVENING MUSINGS.
By Mis. B. Keeley.
One evening in the eiirly spring,
I took u lonely walk,
'I he air was still, no sound was heard,
Thus could my spi.it tflk���
With nature, mid with nature's God.
1 knew that lie was near,
And us t walked my spirit asked
That f His voice might hear���
Directing, guiding, teaching me
To love Him more and more.
To rest entirely on His word,
So linn, so strong, so sure.
The while i mused f looked ahoye
A nil saw l lie stai-y host,
And wondered much if Ihey contained
Angels���or shiners lost.
Heaven's lamps lliey seemed, and o'er my
heart
There stelu a wondrous calm,
Their beauty seemed to speak of Him,
Whose great almighty arm
Htitl hung those lamps. Yet that sum. arm
Almighty love has thrown
Around each sinner, who in faith
Has to His liosom Down.
Thus still I mused, when lo, 1 saw
A wondrous Hash of light.
Darting across wmic stats it Hew,
So large, nlid oh sn hriglit
What could it he?   f thought and asked���
Again and yet again,
But as you know quile well my friends
No answer could f gain,
"A shooting star" perhaps you'll aay.
No friends, no. that I'm sure.
Its size, I think, would cover up
A hundred slurs or more.
I've seen those darting shooting stars.
But this was di liferent fur.
Its sine, its brightness much surpassed
The largest shooting slar.
"A meteor, then," perhaps it w.a,
But fVicmls it seemed to me
A glorious angel sent by God���
His messenger lo be-
To coin cut some one old and worn,
Or p'raps to bear away
A pilgrim old, or little child
To realm:! ol'endless day.
The Bible tells us spirits bright
Are "ministering" around.
We see them not, I hey come and go,
And yet we hear no sound.
But still perchance, at limes a glance
May e'en to us be given
To cheer us on our weary way
And lift our hearts to heaven.

Editor Bogle Writes of a Trip to
the Mountain Chief.
Editor D. B. Bogle ol the Rossland Leader, who visited the Mountain Chief group of copper claims,
located on Bull Dog mountain, close
to Brooklyn, which he and associates recently purchased for $10,000,
writes thus after visiting the property, as noted in last week's News:
"The Mountain Chief, on Dog
Creek, shows one of the greatest
outcrops of rich copper ore in West
Kootenay. Dog creek falls into
Arrow lake about two and a half
miles above Brooklyn and forms the
pass into Burnt Basin and Sheep
Lake district through which the
Robson-Penticton railway is now
under rapid construction. On Bull
Dog Mountain, not more than a
mile and a half from the water,
there are a number of prospects
showing very high values in copper.
"The first of these is a very wide
outcrop of beautiful peacock and
gray copper ore, very similar in appearance to the ore that has made
Toad mountain famous, which occurs on the Mountain Chief claims.
Very little work has yet been done
on the property, but in mining surface cuts and so forth quite a few
tons of rich ore have been taken
out. The property, with three
others surrounding it, has been purchased by the Golden Gate Development Company of Rossland, and it
is their intention to go to work at
once and open the property, shipping the ore taken out in course of
development."
It is quite proper to remark here
that Mr. Bogle is a mining man of
some experience,.and is not noted
for talking through his chapeau.

KILLED BY BLAST
Oscar Johnson Struck by Hy-
ing Rock.
WAS ON VIDEEiVS WORK
Happened Friday Mornln|> at 8.45
(IVIi)ck--l-'riiiik Peterson Badly
Injured by Same Blast.
Yesterday morning at 8.45 another fatal accident occurred on the
line of construction. This tin��� it
was on Vldeen's contract, which he
has sub-lot from Pat Welch, located
about ten miles below Brooklyn on
Lower Arrow lake.
Giant powder had been put in a
seam or crevice and when it was
exploded Oscar Johnson, who was
standing 200 feet away, was struck
in the breast by flying rock and instantly killed. Frank Peterson was
also hit, his leg being badly shattered. He is now receiving every
possible attention at the company's
hospital in Brooklyn.
The remains of Johnson were
brought up on the Illicilliwaet, and
after permit is received from the
coroner at Nelson, as required by
law in case of accidents, will be interred. He was a man of perhaps
60 years of age.
Stopped by Smoke.
People in smelter towns know
that sulphur smoke kills vegetation,
but last week saw the first instance
of sulphur smoke stopping a train.
This actually occurred in Trail
last week. The fumes were rising
in a heavy cloud, and the wind
carried them up the river. In the
afternoon a heavy rain fell and the
sulphur accumulated on the tracks
in such quantities as to create a
heavy coating of grease, on which
sand had but little effect. At anv
rate, the big standard gauge engine
drawing 12 freight cars, just half
the usual number, ran into the
smoke at Murphy creek and didn't
get out until after repealed attempts,
covering more than an hour.
Oolitic to Hie Valt.
Many Brooklyn residents will attend the Spokane fruit fair, which
will open next Tuesday. The round
trip from Rossland will be $7.75,
with half fare for children between
the ages of 5 and 12 years. Tickets
will be good for five days, with
October 17 as the extreme limit.
The harvest festival parade will be
the feature of the opening day. It
is expected that it will be larger
than last year, and that the floats
will be far more handsome. The
floats are rapidly nearing completion. All will be ready for the
parade by Monday night.

The Former Provluelal IWiieralou-lht
Tell, ol' IIm Protfrem..
"Rossland is away in advance
this year of what it ever was before.
All good development work is proving most satisfactory. New ore
bodies and large ones carrying good
ore arc being found ; a great deal
of work is being done, and next
year there will be much more. Some
very large enterprises are now under way, and heavy mining work is
being done. Rossland itself is most
prosperous, and is improving rapidly. For the British America Corporation I am now operating five
properties, and as we will have the
control of the stock of the Le Roi
we will before long probably be in
full control of its working. This
property is looking magnificent
now, and is shipping 400 tons a
day. Some of our other properties,
with the work   we  have   already
done, are showing up well. Toronto
people have been very fortunate in
Rossland, ami have splendid properties. The War Eagle is a magnificent property, and the Gooderham-
Blackstock syndicate has been extremely fortunate in securing the
Centre Star, which has panned out
splendidly during the past year.
"The rapid development of Rossland is shown by the increase in
shipments. Last year Rossland
shipped 60,000 tons, worth about
$31 a ton. Already this year 95,000
tons have been shipped, and this
wotild have been much more if shipments had not been suspended in
the Le Roi pending the negotiations
Secured One Third ot (ireenwood.
A correspondent, writing from
Greenwood, states that the agreement between the townsite owners,
L. A. Hamilton, Land Commissioner, H. T. Wilgress, right of way
purchasing agent for the C. P. R.,
Mayor Wood and Aid. Galloway,
relative to the railway company acquiring a third interest in the unsold
lots in that city has been signed;
also a free right of way through the
property of Messrs. Wood and Galloway, in the valley, has been granted. In lieu of this consideration,
the C, P. R. undertakes to make
Greenwood the company's headquarters in that section of the
country, and have agreed to extensively advertise it, Since this
announcement was made, property
in Greenwood has become quite
stiff, and lots are selling very freely.
The Uniteu states mint at Philadelphia is being so heavily taxed in
