Notice of Dissolution.
"VTOTICE la hereby given that the partnership
->^ heretofore existing between D. D. Ferguson
nnd R. G. Ritchie, doing business under the firm
name and style of Ferguson & Ritchie, general
merchants. Cascade, B. 0-, Is this day dissolved
by mutual consent.
R. G. Ritchie will continue the business, assuming all llabillitte. of said firm, and all accounts owing to said firm are to be paid to said
R. G.,Rltchre.
Dated ut Cascade, B. c, thl. 8th day of May,
1901, Signed,   D. D. FERGUSON,
a G.RITCHIE,
the knowledge of the general public sible date. That Cascade will benefit materially by this road both
during and after completion is beyond the question. Much heavy
work must be done close to town,
while near the dam a tunnel 800
feet long must be bored through
the mountain, while this being the
point where the Canadian territory
is first entered much permanent
business will be created by the
entry of the new road.
The C. P. R., however, is apparently not unmindful of its interests and seems to he planning
a coupe by invading the American
territory. The Kettle River railway charter, granted by the Dominion parliament to Messrs, Stratton et als, also covers the territory
between Cascade and Carson. It
is not supporetl the whole cf this
line will be built but only so much
of it as is necessary to connect the
present C. & \V. main line with the
line at Carson. On the American
side from Carson to Republic
parties represented by W.C. Morris
of Republic claimed to have obtained a charter covering the route from
Carson to Republic. Under these
two charters it is claimed a continuous line is to be constructed at
once from Republic which will have
connection and traffic arrangements
with the C. & W. Construction of
this line will give the smelters
along the C. P. R. the smelting of
Republic as well as of Boundary
ores thereby benefiting the smelters
already built and encouraging the
erection of new ones.
When the Warner Miller franchise was granted, we understood
it conveyed the exclusive right to
the territory traversed; however,
as Mr. Morris stated recently in an
interview published in the Spokesman-Review, that he had secured
the franchise and that tbe road
would be built immediately, we can
not question that fact.
With all obstacles now overcome
and the prize within reach of each
of the rival companies, obtained
after much delay, trouble and expense, it is not to be presumed unnecessary time will he wasted in
taking possession of the field by
constructing the lines. From now
on it will be interesting to watch
the struggle of the two mighty
giant corporations each endeavoring to secure supremacy.
is concerned, in a kaleidoscopic
view. Yet, it begins to assume a
more tangible shape than heretofore. Applications by two or more
different parties for franchises over
the same territory, together with
the circulation as facts of various
rumors, interviews and personal
conclusions as to tbe actions and
intentions of the promotors, have
tended to intermingle fact with
fancy until it was almost impossible to form even an intelligent
opinion of the situation. The
Record has endeavored to avoid
publishing unreliable or misleading rumors, even at the risk of
seeming indifference on the subject,
which now begins lo assume shape.
For the past ten years or more the
Spokane FalU& Northern R'y company has been seeking to build this
line but owing to inability to abtain
charters through British Columbia
territory, has been prevented, until
all obstacles are apparently overcome; bo now nothing exists to prevent it accomplishing its long-
sought purpose.
The construction of the railway
from the S. F. & N. to Republic is
of the utmost importance to us
locally. It now appears this line
will be constructed under two franchises: First���Commencing at or
near Meyers Falls on the S. F. &
N., this road will cross the Columbia helow Marcus, thence following
up the west bank of Kettle river to
the international boundary line
about one and one-half miles below
Cascade; then beginning again at
the boundary line al or near Car-
eon���about 15 miles west of Cascade���following the Kettle river
and Curlew valley tp Republic.
These two pieces of road, all on U.
S. soil, are to be built under a franchise granted by the U. S. government to ex-Senator Warner Miller
and associates, and is backed financially by, and is to be constructed
in the interest of, the Great Northern.
The intervening link, to wit, the
fifteen miles between Cascade and
Carson, in British Columbia territory, is to be built under the V. V.
& E. charter or franchise, which
was granted by the Dominion government, and is now owned by
Messrs. McKenzie & Mann of Toronto, and J. J. Hill, president of
the Great Northern R'y company.
Under this charter power ie given
to connect with the American lines,
also to extend spurs of sufficient
length to enable them to reach all
the Boundary mines. Thus are the
great mineral bearing Boundary
and Republic districts to receive
additional railway facilities, and
the Spokane Falls & Northern and,
indirectly, the Great Northern, to
secure a valuable feeder to their
lines.
West of Republic and Curlew
this line will eventually be extended into the Okanogan and Similkameen districtb and doubtless in time
to the coast, crossing and recrossing
VALUABLE PROSPECTS ON TEXAS CREEK
First Mortfiie Debenture!.
A cable from London to the
Montreal Star states that the Kettle River Power company have advertised an issue of $100,000 six per
cent first mortgage debentures,
repayable at 110 in January, 1933,
to develop concessions from the
Cascade Water Power and Light
company and to pay sums already
expended by the London & B. C.
Goldfields company, limited.

Christina Lake District to be Exploited this
Simmer.
Mr. A. J. Stewart, for the past
six or eight months in the employ
of E. Spraggett up the North Fork,
and who was formerly in the black-
smithing business in Cascade, wae
among the arrivals here Tuesday.
Mr. Stewart with J. P. Robertson,
owns three promising mineral
claims on Texas creek near the
lake, the Sun Shine, Copper King
and Copper Kettle. Mr. Stewart
stated to a Record scribe that it is
their intention to begin extensive
development work on these claims
ahout the first of July. Considerable work has already been done
on the Sun Shine, a thaft having
been sunk in ore from the surface,
which has given assays averaging
between $20 and $25 in total value.
Three of the most desirable metals,
gold, silver and copper are found
in the following proportions: Copper, 5-J; gold, $2, and silver ���1.60.
Four or five men will be put to
work, the shaft will be driven deeper and crosscutting done to determine the width of the ore body.
Qeo. Q. Cimm'i WIIL
The will of the late Geo. Q. Cannon, at one time president of the
Morman church, who died in Monterey, California, last month, bas
been filed for probate in Salt Lake
CHy. The will desposes of an estate approximating in value
$1,000,000. According to the terras
of the will the estate is divided into
two parts, the first part consisting
of gilt edged securities worth $200.-
000. This is to remain in trust
until George Q. Cannon's youngest
child, now nine years old, attain*
his majority. Each of the thirty-
three children of President Cannon
will receive an acre of land from
the Cannon farm and $2,000 in
cash on attaining majority or at
marriage, the balance of the $200,-
000 to be-divided among the children when the youngest child becomes of age. While polygamy
was recognized by the Morman
church Mr. Cannon had four wire*
To these he willed their homes, provision also being made for their
maintenance during life. The remainder of the estate valued at
$800,000, passes into the possession
of tbe George Q. Cannon Association of which president Cannon's
children and his nephew, John M.
Cannon, are stockholders. This
property is to he held in trust until
the youngest child is forty years old.
This will not be for thirty-one
years.

An El Paso (Texas) dispatch
sayB representatives of the United
States and Mexican boundary commission have just embarked on a
voyage down the Rio Grande in
three boats to make observations
and a more complete survey of the
river. It will require three months
to make the trip, and for a distance
of 600 miles all communication
with the outside world will be cut
off. The voyage is considered an
extremely hazardous one, at in
many places the river coneit-ts .of
dangersous rapids, and hut little is
known of its windings where it traverses the grand canyon. 2

It now transpires that Mr.
Houston's opposition to the
Coast-Kootenay railway proposition in the recent legislature was due to the fact that
it is feared if the road is built
it would injure Nelson as a
wholesale jobbing point
The editors of the Nelson
Tribune and Midway Advance
are engaged in calling each
other damn fools. While the
language employed by them
is uncouth and tinged with
billingsgate, the public will
be disposed to give them both
credit for being sincere and
truthful in their assertions, in
this matter at least.
NO BONUS AWARD TO RAILWAY SCHEMES.
Why did the Dominion government turn down British
Columbia in the matter of railway bonuses, when over $3,-
000,000 were distributed
among the other provinces?
And this, too, at a time when
new railways in this province
were the paramount matters of
public interest!
If Premier Dunsmuir presented in his exhaustive report
�� correct version of his mission to Ottawa, we can not but
believe that the final results
of that effort will prove a great
benefit to British Columbia,
nevertheless it would almost
appear that it has already had
the very opposite effect. In
the under current of political
strife and ambitious jealousies
the Premier's visit to the capital seems to have annoyed
some of the regular representatives of the people, who looked upon the action of the Premier as an indication on his
part of want of confidence in
them, as to ability and disposition, to properly set forth
the needs and rights of their
constituents. For this reason,
it is charged, the said lepre-
sentatives were either luke
warm on the railway matters
of this province before the Dominion parliament, or actually
opposed the Premier's plans.
However this may be, no
bonuses were granted to British Columbia, except in the
matter of lead refining. This
is to be regretted, though on
general principles we do not
sanction the method. If the
action of the Ottawa authorities is due to provincial politi
cal discord, those who are responsible for it cannot be too
speedily retired from the political arena. One possessed
of pattizan bigotry or individual jealousy to a degree that
drives him to ignore his constituency's interests, is too
narrow to be a fit representative of the people at any time
or any where.
Boundary creek, in Greenwood,
and Cottonwood creek in Nelson,
have been on the rampage, doing
considerable damage within the
limits of those townn. By the
washing out of streets and the sudden sailing away of I r'dges, Greenwood, it is reported, has sustained
a loss of nearly $4,000.
Robson Bridie Ready for Steel Ralls.
John Gunn, the contractor of the
Robson bridge across the Columbia
river, in reply to a question regarding the work on the bridge said it
was now completed so far as his
part of it was concerned. The contract was completed on Tuesday of
last week and is now ready for the
laying of the steel rails.
The Mlner-Oraves Syndicate Branching Oat.
A syndicate inoluding Jay P.
Graves, A. C. Flumerfelt and W.
Yolen Williams, through its solicitor, H. G. R. Heisterman, has submitted to the Phoenix city council a
proposition for installing water and
electric light systems in Phoenix.
A 25-year franchise with the privilege of renewing it for two terms
of ten years each is sought. The
city council is also given the right
to purchase the proposed system at
the end of either of these terms.
The syndicate on its part agrees to
furnish water and light acoording
to certain schedules of prices. The
offer iB now under consideration.
The water supply of Phoenix is
altogether insufficient for fire protection. The rapid growth of population makes the installation of
a new system imperative. If an
agreement is reached the syndicate
will begin operations at once, so
says a Grand Forks despatch.
John's Hesd Levels Up Occasionally.
When the Royal Commission
was in Nelson this week Mr. John
Houston was called as a witness.
He gave the commission the
straight tip in these words:
"If every man and every firm in
British Columbia would not hire a
Chinaman or a Jap there would
not be one of them in the country
in two years. I would rather see
every cannery and every sawmill
at the Coast close down for a year
than run as they do now with Oriental cheap labor." He said he
would exclude them altogether.
They were not a desirable class of
people and their presence here tends
to lower wages and degrade the
class of people compelled to compete with them. They do not assimilate with whites and from this
standpoint no race that cannot assimilate is not desirable no matter
who they are���Japanese, Chinese,
Italian, Scotch or Irish or anybody
else. If legislation similar to that
of the United States cannot be enacted here he would favor a head
tax of $1,000 which would effectually keep them out. They are no
more necessary, he thinks, as do
mestio servants in Nelson than
they are any other place. They
are employed simply because they
are here and it is convenient. If
the people made up their minds
not to use them there would not be
a Chinamen in Nelson in six
months. It would inconvenience
some temporarily, but once they
were out of town equally good white
help would he here to take their
p'aoes.
The boom of the Yale-Columbia
Lumber company gave way Sunday
night last and let a large jam of
drifwood down against the big dam
of the Cascade Water Power & Light
company.

BRIEF LOCAL MENTION.
Mr. D. D. Ferguson went up to
take a look at Phoenix Wednesday,
Wednesday a Record reporter
was shown some ripe, wild straw
berries, picked within the town
limits.
Rev. and Mrs. Rae of Grand
Forks have been visiting in Cas
cade this week, coming down Wednesday.
Mr. E. Charles was in town a
few days since on matters connect'
sd with the right-of-way of the
V.V. &E.
The high water in the Kettle
river has caused the inundation of
portions of the wagon road be>
tween Cascade and Gilpin's.
The McGill students have been
doing the Boundary the past week,
their special car attached to a
freight train, passing Cascade last
Sunday afternoon.
Hon. J. H. Turner is making a
tour of the leading mining districts
of the province, prior to his departure for London, as Agent-General
for British Columbia in England.
Our sister town at the Forks is
preparing for a grand celebration
on Dominion Day. They say ��53,-
000 will be given in prizes on that
doy. The chances are there'll be
a hot time in the old town on that
occasion.
Last weeks Grand Forks Gazette
stated that E. Charles, right-of-
way agent for the V. V. & E., had
arrived in that city, and immediate'
ly began the work of arranging for
the right-of-way between that place
and Cascade.
Qne of the men .who have been
working for the American Mining
Investment company at Curlew is
in the city and Bays the men there
have given up hope of ever getting
their pay, says the Grand Forks
Gazette. We have one here of about
tlm arae opinion, we presume.
Ira Black of Phoenix and his
brother Julius of Eholt were shak
ing hands and exchanging smiles
with their old Cascade friends Wed
nesday. The Blacks still own the
hotel formerly occupied by them in
this town and it is to be hoped a
revival of business will see them
back in their old hostlery.
Madam Rumor has it that the
Boundary Falls smelter will be
moved to Grand Forks. We
haven't heard her say anything
about moving the big dam of the
Cascade Waterpower Co. up to
Grand Forks yet. On the other
hand we have had our lariat ready
to lasso the Grand Forks smelter
for some time, as we expect to see
it float down the river during these
high water times.
In last week's article on Cascade
Water Power it was stated 1000 to
2000 h.p. would be available, which
was a typographical error, It should
have read 10,000 to 20,000 h.p.
In this connection the Phoenix
Pioneer will pardon us for correcting the statement made in its recent issue crediting this power with
only 5,000 h p. Besides, Br'er Wilcox, (40,000 dont begin to cover the
expenditures to date; 9250,000 is
nearer the correct figure, and that
will be doubled before Christmas,
when it is expected the works will
be in. operation.
Tbe Phoenix Pioneer's power
press has greatly improved the
print of that excellent paper. As
we expect soon to participate in the
general prosperity of the Boundary
journalists, it is pleasing to note
the improvement from time to time
in our local confreres.
Pending the rebuilding of Stover
& Sons' sawmill, Mr. P. A. Monro,
their engineer, is at hiB home in
Cascade.
Mrs. A. J. Stewart, who has been
visiting in San Francisco since
February, is expeoted to return to
her home in Grand Forks about
the middle of next month.
Wednesday at Grand Forks the
swolen waters of the Kettle river
were on a level with Riverside avenue and still rising, putting the
basements and back yards between
that avenue and the river from six
to ten feet under water.
Mr. J. E. Woodruff has been a
sufferer from the effects of the high
water of the past week or two, the
water having flooded his newly
seeded ground across the river,
about three acres of potatoes and
other vegetables being inundated.
It is feared the whole field will be
a total loss.
James Robertson, who formerly
conducted the B. C. restaurant in
Cascade, and who is known as an
expert restauranteur, it is said is
preparing to open an eating house
at Russell, when work commences
on the proposed railway between
Cascade and Meyers Falls, which it
is confidently predicted will begin
inside of the next ten days.     ,
The parties who have made a
bluff at staking a water. right on
one of the placer claims at Russell,
legally, held and owned by other
persons, are liable to get themselves
tangled up in the meshes of law
for trespassing on the property of
others,...They may find the fun in
it will be outweighed by trouble
arising from their action.
Mr. Wm. Anderson, resident engineer for the Cascade Water Power
and Light company, may justly
take pride and satisfaction in the
result of his work in the construction of the big dam here for his
company. There are acres and
acres of driftwood thrown against
it by the greatest volume of water
that has flown in the Kettle river
for years, the dam itself being
nearly submerged, and yet it
stands there as firmly as in low
water. It probably will never be
more severely tested.
Notes By The Way.
A severe gale swept the Great

It is not likely that Hon. J. H.
Turner will resign his portfolio as
finance minister in the Dunsmuir
government and his seat in the
house until sometime after his arrival in London. This will be a
disappointment   to   those   who, |
severally, believe they will be called on to succeed him, but the people will not worry much over it.
If the province has bonds to sell,
Mr. Turner would be more able to
place them to good advantage than
a new and untried minister. Until
Mr. Turner resigns, the provincial
secretary, Hon. J. D. Prentice, will
be acting finance minister, so it is
said.���Nelson Tribune.

Tie Little Pitched Trousers.
How dear to my   heart are the
pants of my childhood,
When fond recollections present
them to view,
The pants that I wore in the deep
tangled wildwood,
And likewise the groves where
the crab apple grew;
The wide-spreading seat with the
little square patches,
The pockets that bulged with my
luncheon for noon
And also with marbles and fish-
worms and matches,
And gum-drops and kite-strings
from March until June;
The little   patched trousers,   the
made-over trousers,
The high-water trousers that fit
me too soon.
No pantaloons ever performed greater Bervice
In filling the hearts of us youngsters with joy;
They made the decent from Adol-
phus to Jervis,
Right down through a family of
ten little boys.
Through no fault of mine, known
to uie.or to others, j ���
I'm the tenderest branch of our
big family tree,
They, came Idown to me slightly
bagged at the knee.

At 8 o'clock Monday morning
Havelock Gilian, a miner employed at the Nickel Plate mine, received injuries which resulted in
his death at the Sisters' hospital at

work at the 800-foot level with a
load ol steel and after putting the
steel off gave the signal to hoist.
It is thought that Gilian got
caught between the roof of the station and the ascending cage and
was erushed and thrown back on
the floor, where he was found by
his fellow miners. Gilian was 25
years old and came from Wyne
Harbor, Gaysboro county, Nova
