No. 40.
TRACK JS HERE
First Locomotive in the Boundary Country Crossed the
Long Kettle River Bridge this Morning.
THRONGS OF PEOPLE TO WITNESS TBE GREAT EVENT
Locomotive Was Gaily Decorated, and Reached West End of the Bridge at 10:27.
Agent Huckerby Already Here���Freight Being Rushed Forward.
At exactly 27 minutes oast 10
this morning the first locomotive
lo enter the Boundary counter)-,
crossed the 1600-foot long, 135-foot
high Kettle river bridge at Cascade,
and is now busy laying the heavy
73:}iound Carnegie steel rails in the
Cascade yards. The enginti" is;*ft
powerful one, with eight 'drivers.
It is numbered 403, and has H. N.
A.bfjimson at the throttle and James
H. Baxter as fireman, two excellant
mechanics. Last night the engine
was decorated with hunting, and
presented a gay appearance today,
as it pushed" the.-, track-laying'machine before it, which was putting
down the heavy ateel at the rate o'f
one rail,:30'feet,. every two minutes.
The track was laid to the other
end of the.bridge last Monday, but
has beeirdelaye'cl Tfor want*of *the
30-foot bridge stringers which were
en route from the'eoast.However,
Sitprintendent Stewart and Chief
Engineer Tye set the wires at work,
ii special steamer was sent up Arrow
lakes, and the* result of their unre-
mittingenergy is seen in presence of
the snorting iron horse in the Gateway City today.     ,,..'���
Everybody Witnessed It
Word was pntteed around this
morning in town, that after long I
months of anticipation and waiting, the first p.'IVBj. tr^iin would
run into Cascade before noon.
The effect was magical, and there
was'sOon a string of people hastily
wending their way to the bridge.
There were Old men, and 'maidens,
young men arid ladies, professional
and.business men, contractors and
engineers���all with a pleased sriiile
on their faces, interestedly watching the operations of the tracklayers.      - fc i    :      .. ���
tn a few minutes' a subscription
of $25 was raised among the citizens, and shortly thereafter J. A.
Bertois drove up'witha wiigon load
of such refreshments as are most
appreciated by laboring men on
such occasions. It is needless to
say that the men showed their
hearty appreciation of the thought-
fulnass of J. H. Earle and other
business men.
Mr..Huckerby the Cascade Agent.
Last Thursday morning's train
brought in Peter Huckerby, the
new station agent for Cascade, who
will have charge of the freight, express and passenger business at
this point.   With him also came
D. B. Macfarlane and 0. Macfar*
lane, his assistants, all three having formerly been located at Brooklyn.
Mr. Huckerby states that he expects to begin his freight business
bright and early Monday morning,
if he has to use a box car for his
office��� which is probable. It is
not expected- that passenger, and
express business will be accepted
for two or three weeks yet, when
things will be in better running
order, and the track aligned and
ballasted, The telegraph line,,
however, will'be here almost .immediately,, and Cascade will be
ready to doall' kinds' of business
expeditiously with the outside
world. /
Already Rushing Freight In.-  '���.,'���/*
A car. of hogs and sheep, for .p.
Burns & Co., wa* brougrjt, Sown
to the bridge yesterday, but had to
he taken back to the siding at Sutherland creek. Thin will be brought
in this afternoon with seven other
cars of merchandise. Orders; were
sent, out yesterday to rueh all
Boundary freight via Ribsc'ii to
Cascade.
It is .certain that the C.';P. R. ex-
pectato do an'immenseibusiness
at this point, as'wree jexperienced
employees hrive been sent here to
care for it. As soon as possible a
neat and enmmodroup station will
be- ereoted, the carpenters being
already on the way here.

��� Thursday a distinguished, party
arrived in town and spent the

the Crow's Nest C��al Co., and a
large owner nf'the Toronto Globe;
A. A. Cox, a. brother, of Senator
Cox, and Major Pell at, a well-
known mining operator of Toronto.
The gentlemen had been making a
tour of the Boundary and Republic
camps, where they have extensive
interests, and were en route home.
A special train, consisting of nn
engine and caboose, met them the
other side of the bridee yesterday
morning, and accompanied by Jaek
Stewart, D. McLeod, and Contractor McDonell, they went over the
new railway. The last week was
spent in personal examinations of
the famous mines of the districts
referred to.
.������.,, *   :���
William Forrest has been ap-
.pointed* road Q superintendent for
this district, and began work this
Week with a gang of men. Altogether he is authorized to spend
$950, as follows: $500 on the main
road, -jierweeu the ,:boundary' line
and Grand Forks; $800 on the wagon foad between Cascade and
English Point; $150 on a, trail up
Baker creek. All of these expenditures are much needed, and will
go quite a distance in putting the
highways in fair condition. The
trail up Baker creek is an improvement that will greatly facilitate the
opening up of the Shamrock mountain properties,,as well as thope on
Sutherland creek.
While the amount is small, it
will put in a fair trail nearly up to
the Elmore claim, one of the best
properties in that locality, which
is surrounded by many other promising claims, with great ledges.

HOUSE OK COMMONS,
Ottawa,��th July, ISM.
To TUB KDlTOh Oascadk Kbcohu:
UeurSJr.;���In your paper of the iKhid inst., yoa
makeji tjtfcrqppe to>postal .yiu^ters.flrlilflM>tnfd,
like you, to explain. I .understood that Messrs.
McLeod and Dorman, postofllce Inspector*, ha'd
so arranged ihe mail-service in the boundary
creek country as to give the best service that
could be arranged, taking into account ev��ry con-
dltlbn and the present stage ot development of the
country. From your paper 1 judge that matter*
are anything but satisfactory, and I would be
glad to know \vhat you particularly complain of.
so that I may, if posssible,, have It put right.
.;       Yours truly., Hhwmt Bostock.
Mr. Bostouk is right.   Matters in
regard  to Cascade's   mail  service -
are anything but satisfactoiy. The'-;
trouble, evidently, is all  with 'the;r
contractors for carrying the same,
the Columbia Stage. Co.   This concern has repeatedly carried mail
sacks through, that:were destined
for Cascade.   Recently, on a Thurso
day, a sack containing important
mail was carried through and did
not get back till Sunday.   On another occasion the stage driver forgot to leave the bag, and handrd if.
to a passing wayfarer beyond Cas-
cade, to bring in.
More than once sacks contain- -
ing sums of money, from $1,000 to.
$3,500 have been carried through,
to great annoyance of our business
men. These are not isolated cases,
but they occur nearly every week,
and there are, numerous witnesses
to the facts stated. ,"
Inspectors. McLeod and  Dorman ,
have been appealed io, but thus far
without satisfactory results.   Seemingly, the stand is taken that, until the new railway is in operation
it will be difficult to secure a satisfactory service, and even then", the
American mail will probably con- ���
tinue to come by way of Bossburg.
If so, this is a remarkable admission for Postmaster-General  Mu-
lock's subordinates to   make.   It '
may be months before Jhe railway.
is utilized for mail  carrying purposes arid Mr. Bostock will be doing a  great service to have this
matter thoroughly ventilated.
Mr. Bostock's letter has been
answered, signed by a number of
our leading concerns and citizens.
It remains to he seen whether it-
bas more effect than the numerous
complaints sent the inspeptore. THE  CASCADE  RECORD

C. P. R. FINDS A FEASIBLE ROUTE.
Tt (let Down to the Okanagan Valley, via Gamp
McCuddy.
After many months of surveying
and the expenditure of much money, the Canadian Pacific Railway
engineers have discovered a feasible route for a railway over the
divide between the Kettle and
Okanagan river valleys, and to the
south of Camp McKinney. Strange
as it may seem it is said the crossing of this divide at the point indicated, has offered the greatest
difficulty to engineering skill met
with west of the Columbia river.
This was owing not to the elevation attained as the sudden drop
off from the summit to the valley
of the Okanagan, necessitating a
circuitous route, zigzagging'down
the mountain. Even this seemed
difficult to attain, until line.* were
run to the north of what is known
as Camp McCuddy, but as apparently engineering skill has
triumphed over Nature,.-it may be
inferred that the Canadian Pacific
Railway will now take this route
over which to build the main line
from Midway to Penticton. Should
such be the case, branch roads will
be run to tap the main and western tributary of the Kettle river,
and a junction formed at some
point near to and yet east of Rock
creek.

MOVE IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION.
Last week's meeting of delegates
from the boards of trade, of Kootenay and Yale, at Rossland, was
successful in every way. The gath ���
ering was a representative one, in
every way of the business interests
of the sections referred to, and can
hardly fail to be of benefit to the
people in Southeastern British Columbia.
This section has too long been
neglected at Ottawa and Victoria.
Appeals have been sent in repeatedly, but for the most part in vain.
Legislature, did not or would not
see that this country, destined to
be the richest perhaps in the Dominion, was growing rapidly, and
that its neede were growing with
equal speed. Consequently, with
most inadequate representation at
both capitals,acts were passed with
but little consideration, that vitally
affected Kootenay and Yale.
With concerted action, which
will be taken as a result of the
gathering, reforms will be inaugurated and carried out to the lasting good of our great business interests. On another page will be
found a full report of the Rossland
meeting, which will well repay perusal. The forming of the organization was a move in the right
direction. It must not be used to
vent personal spite nor to grind
individual axes.
POSITION OP THE GOVERNMENT.
After several attempts to fill the
position of attorney-general of the
m-ovh'ce, lately vacated by Joseph
Martin, Premier Semlin has at last
succeeded in getting Alexander
Henderxon, of New Westminster,
to accept the office. The government supporters and part of the
government press in a luke warm
manner, assert that he will be endorsed by his constituency, when
he goes before them, as he must
shortly, for their approval.
But it so happens that Mr. Henderson's recent political attitude
has been somewhat peculiar. He
was elected last year to the legislative assembly as a supporter of
the Turner government, and was
one of the hardest workers and
1 ���didest shouter? for the late premier. But when Mr. Semlin was
called on by the lieutenant-governor to form a cabinet, Mr. Henderson suddenly experienced a change
of heart, and since then has voted
and worked with the present government.
In view of these plain facts, it is
difficult to see wherein government
supporters can find encouragement
for the idea that the people of New
Westminster, who sent Mr. Henderson to Victoria to support Mr.
Turner, will now follow his political acrobatic feat and vote him into Mr. Semlin's cabinet. On the
contrary, the opposition are most
confident that he will be ignomi-
niously turned down at the polls.
The writ for the bye-election is
expected any day now, and there
will doubtless be a hot and short
campaign in the Royal City.
Should Mr Henderson be elected
there is still grave doubt of the
stability of the present government,
with Joe Martin and D. W. Hig-
gins avowedly against it. Mr.
Semlin has anything but a bed of
roses, even should he succeed in
holding the government together,
which is extremely doubtful.
question, and may result in serious
trouble.
NOTE AND COMMENT.
The Kamloops Standard says
the government is dying by inches.
It certainly has but a short lease
of life.
Cascade is now not only the
headquarters for the railway coi.-
tractors, but also for the C. P. R.
in the Boundary country.
Captain Dreyfus is once more
having a trial at Henries, France,
and the French people are holding
their breath for the result.
A smelter is talked of for the
Mother Lode, in Deadwood camp.
The prediction made that the Boundary would be a smelting center
seems likely to be verified in the
near future.
Oil is being used in place of water for sprinkling in some eastern
cities. In Victoria a little oil
sprinkled on the troubled political
waters appears to be an urgent
need just now.
Knowing ones assert that the
recent beginning of activity by the
government in starting work on
roads and trails in different parts,
is it sure indication of an approaching election. This was the Turner
government'.^ program last year.
Greenwood's city council has
turned down the Spokesman-Review's proposition for an advertisement to the tune of $900. The
nice, sweet, things about Greenwood in Spokane's daily will correspondingly be fewer and further
between.
To put it mildly, it is to be regretted that miners have begun to
be imported from Ontario to work
Kootenay properties. It will undoubtedly complicate the situation
and the struggle on the eight-hour
Many of the provincial papers
agree that for the present Joe Martin is only biding his time. When
the opportunity arrives, he expects
to deliver a knock-out blow to
some of those he chooses to think
responsible for his recent and
mighty downfall.
The coast papers with much glee
announce that the Pacific cable
project is likely to be taken and
pushed to an early completion.
It would be more to the point just
now if some of the government
works in the interior were pushed
to an early completion.
Last week the types made the
Record say the Dominion government had allowed subsidies of
$58,00O,(J00 for new railways. This
was, of course, one cipher too
many, but it is notable, that of
this amount, not a dollar is to be
spent in British Columbia.
PROORESS OP TRACK-LAYING.
An Interesting Estimate by One Familiar
With the Work.
The progress of the track-layers
on the new railway is of interest to
the entire Boundary section.
Owing to the bridge building necessary, it cannot help being slower
than could be wished. The following estimate of progress from Cascade was made by one familiar
with the work, and is based on
what has already been dune on the
line:
Cross 1st bridge over Kettle river
at Cascade, 1,600 feet long, August
14th.
Reach 2nd bridge over Kettle
river at Cascade, August 15.
Cross 2nd bridge over Kettle
river, 120-foot span, August 21.
To 3rd bridge over Kettle river,
11 miles, at old government ferry,
August 27.
Cross 3rd bridge over Kettle
river, 130-foot span, September 2.
To 4th bridge over Kettle river,
at Columbia, 1.400 feet long, one
130-foot span and one 150-foot
span, September 3.
Cross 4th bridge over Kettle
river, September 10.
To Niagara, 5 miles, including
crossing 600 foot bridge, 80 feet
high, September 18.
To Greenwood, 17 miles, September 29.
To Midway, 10 miles, October
5th.
This estimate is made without
allowance for unforeseen delays,
and consequently does not pretend
to be absolutely accurate.
Just Like Cascade.
New Denver is full of free cows
and horses. They roam around
the city eating up everything in
sight without regard to the price.
They made a sortie on our lawn
the other night and upset the
water barrel. If this occurs again
we will whistle to the bull pup,
and flood the market with cheap
beef, and have enough horse meat
left over to supply the American

Peter Larson,; of Mann, Foley
Bros'; & Larson, who spent several
days in Cascade last week, is an
excellent example of what a poor
man can make out of himself.
' Starting years ago with nothing
but determination and persever-
ance as a capital, he haB gradually
worked himself up from obscurity
and poverty to affluence and prominence, though to thiB day he ie
one of the most democratic of men
to moet. With shrewdness and
care of details he made one small
contract after another pay; then
he took larger ones, and now is
able to handle any size, the present one, of a sum approximating
$4,000,000 for building the Rob-
son-Midway branch of the C. P. R.,
being a sample. In addition, he
is interested in the Nelson <fe Bedlington, railway contract, and the
Trinidad, Wash., contract. Mr.
Larson built the Nelson & Ft.
Shepherd railway, and a large section of the Great Northern west
from Spokane, besides many others.
He has also done well with his
mining investments, one of which
the Morning mine, in the Coeur d'-
Alenes, is said'hy some to have tbe
most extensive ore bodies in that
entire section. .. An indomitable
will, coupled with energy ar^d stick-
to-itive-ness will accomplish much
in this world of ours.
. J. H.Macf aria tie, business manager, of the Montreal Boundary
Cree^k Mining Co,, owning the Sunset mine, in Deadwood camp, was
in Cascade Wednesday, accompanied by H. Johns and wife. Mr.
Johns is the new superintendent at
the Sunset, and is going out to inspect some plants and secure the
latest and best for the.Sunset. .The
plant will include a 20-drill compressor, boilers, hoist and pump to
match, and will be of the Inger-
soil-Sergeant pattern. It is expected to arrive in six or seven
^weeks, and has been ordered to be
shipped to Cascade for transhipment. Mr. Johns has been with
the Mother Lode mine, adjoining
the Sunset, for 15 months, and has
had charge of the development during that time. The Sunset people
are indeed fortunate in securing
his services when they are install"
ing a plant that will cost $30,000
complete and will without doubt
be the most complete in the Boundary country. , The company is
one of the strongest operating in
the Boundary, and has $125,000 in
the treasury as a starter for development work.
J. H. Inkster, the mining man,
who started work on the Pontifex
group, near Cascade, on Huckleberry mountain, a couple of
months ago, was in town this
week. He has just returned from
a trip to the Windermere section
in East Kootenay, and on his return visited the Slocan. In both
sections his duties took him where
glaciers are the warmest thing to
be found the year around. He
*ays the town of Whitewater is a
deserted 'village, and Sandon is
about as bad. since the enforcement of the eight-hour law. Mr.
Inkster is a gentleman who has
had a wide and varied experience
in a mining way. and has the confidence of capitalists.

CONGRESS OF Tffi BOARDS
Held a Decidedly Successful Meeting at
Rossland.
NO ACTION ON EIGHT-HOUR QUESTION
Twenty-Two Dclefitei Were Preuot���Eighteen Important Subjects DIkuikcI���Next
Meetlsg at Nelson.
With twenty-two representatives
of various boards present and eighteen important subjects listed for
discussion, the delegates from various towns may safely be congratulated on having got through their
labors with much success, and
great unanimity in the space of
two working days and nights, at
the associated boards of,trade meeting, held at Rossland last week.
The representatives of the Boundary country consisted of Mesnrs.
A. J. McMillan and Duncan Ross,
Greenwood; Smith Curtis and  W.
B. Cockrane, Grand Forks; Stanley
Mayall, Cascade. Midway and Columbia were unfortunately not
represented.
The meeting was held in the
parlor of the Bank of Montreal
and in the manager of that successful corporation the joint board
found a president whose courtesy
and ability were only exceeded by
his hospitality.
Among the various subjects listed
for discussion, may be mentioned:
The Silver-Lead Question; The
Railways and the Public; Postal
Service*; Dominion and Provincial
Parliamentary Representation of
the Boundary country; The Eight-
Hour law; Official Recognition and
Limitation of the Boundary District.
With such able exponents of the
subject as Mr. G. 0. Buchanan, of
Kaslo. and Mr. W. H. Aldridge, of
Trail, present, the silver-lead question was ensured of receiving ade-.
quate discussion.
Mr. Buchanan oa Silver-Lead Industry.
Mr. Buchanan dealt fully with
the history of the silver-lead industry, detailing seriatim the many
reasons, political and constitu tonal, for the present torpid and undeveloped state of the many mines
and promising prospects of the
Slocan and East Kootenay districts.
He suggested reciprocity as to lead
ore shipments between the United
States and Canada, and supported
the action taken to that end at the
Quebec conferei.ce by the British
and Canadian commissioners, and
desired to see this conference insist
iipon the retention of lead ores on
the list to he made duty free. His
remarks met with great applause.
Mr. Aldridge followed and felt
that considerable and lengthy experience of the smelting industry
and its ramification in the United
States and Canada would necessitate his opposing Mr. Buchanan's
attitude on various grounds. He
contended that the true solution of
the difficulty lay in securing for
Canada free re-admission of her
lead, refined in the United States.
At present 15 per cent, duty was
charged on pig lead of Canadian
origin, re-imported from the United
States. He also would desire to
s��e an import duty of 30 per cent.
t/wrrtsWj upon white lead, red lead,
lithirge  or  other   manufactured
lead brought i nfrom the states,
and every thing possible done to
secure the smelting and refining
industries being carried out entirely north of the boundary line.
Rossland could find a splendid example of what ought not 10 be, in
the smelter at Northport.
Views of Col. Topping and Mr. Daly.
Col. Topping thoroughly agreed
with him on this matter, pointing
out how the leading mine of Rossland shipped ore out of the country, which would, if returned here
afford employment for scores of
men. Smith Curtis supported Mr.
Buchanan, and contended that the
C. P. R. and its transporation rates
were great obstacles to the successful carrying out of the industry;
valuable foreign markets were totally lost to Canada on account of
excessive freight rates.
The Hon. T. Mayne Daly contended that free admission of Canadian lead ore into the states would
jeopardise, if not absolutely kill,
the Canadian smelters. Eventually, a resolution was recorded favoring "re-admission, duty free, of
Canadian lead refined abroad; an
import duty on manufactured lead,
conseonant with that on other
manufactured articles, and the
prompt payment of bounties already earned by Canadian smelters, under the act of 1895."
Compliments to the C. P. R.
In the matter of the treatment
accorded by railways entering new
districts to towns already situated
therein, resolutions were presented
by J. I'. Farrell,of Moyie, seconded
by Mr. Mayall,of Cascade,and also
by Mr, Ross, of Greenwood, seconded by Mr. Cochrane, of Grand
Forks,vigorously protesting against
the treatment accorded by the C.
P. R. to existing towns and unfair
ciescriminaticm in favor of town-
sites in which the railway company had its��tf acquired an interest. Mr. Robertson, of Nelson,
pointed out the difficulty of dealing with the matter, and instanced
the provincial government as not
being absolutely clear of suspicion
of being guilty of similar practices,
and favored the board taking action on the matter. Mr.' Mayall
resolutely opposed this, suggesting
that two wrongs did not make one
right, and that this gigantic corporation, which started into existence with a cash grant of $25,000,:
000, a land grant of a similar
amount and a gift of $15,000,000
worth of railroad plant, and now
which had a profit of $1,000,000
per month, had not even the need,
Idt alone the excuse, for such
actions as it was guilty of; and
as to difficulties, they were not insurmountable. The strongest government known in Great Britain
during recent years, had been compelled, after losing three seats in
succession and jeopardising many
others, to eventually give way in a
matter of injustice perpetrated by
the board of agriculture, and he
believed the time was not far distant, when the Dominion parliament would have to recognise the
rights of the public in this province. Eventually a resolution was
passed requesting the minister of
railways to institute such legislation as would better control the
construction of new railroads, ensure provision for existing towns
and prevent unfair exploitation.
Mr. Ross moved, and Smith Curtis seconded, and was also sup-

THE CASCADE RECORD
CONGRESS OF THE BOARDS
(Continued from Page S.)
i-orted by Mr. Mayall, a resolution
urging upon the provincial government the desirability of detailing
that portion of the mineral region
within the natural limits of the
Kettle river bahin, north of the
49th parallel, ind creating therein a new parliamentary division.
A committee consisting of Messrs.
Koss, Harvey, Curtis, and Mayall,
appointed to. report on postal irregularities, drafted a strong resolution urging the postmaster-general
to bring into effect much needed
changes for the amelioration of the
postal service, including better pay
for postmasters, more frequent service, and greater care on the part
of stage lines and others in the
handling of postal matter.
No Action on Eight-Hour Question.
On the eight-hour question,
whilst all present were of opinion
that the change was premature and
uncalled for, some slight difference
of opinion was manifested with regard to action in the matter. One
member proposed a strong resolutions embodying unqualified condemnation of the new regulation,
and received considerable support
from the representative of another
part of the country; a third, from
a district yet little affected by the
change, urged temperate action or
none at all, and was supported hy
a fourth speaker, who pointed out
that, in labor questions, it was necessary to proceed with the utmost
caution; he had personally been
connected with some of the biggest
labor disputes of recent years, in
England, and desired to see no
repetition of them in this country.
Careless 'legislation or interference by outsiders were two of the
primary causes of labor troubles,
aud he urged upon the board the
necessity of refraining from st ying
one word or committing one act
which, being misconstrued might
bring upon the country troubles
which were avoidable.
A fifth speaker gave some history
of the change and pointed out that
the difficulty might be in a fair
way of solving itself, and suggested
that those who had mining interests should themselves make representations to the minister on the
subject A committee was appointed to deal with the matter as
best seemed fit.
The whole of the proceedings
went like clock work. There was
general cordiality, no fighting for
selfish interests, and a keen desire
to carry out in the most business
way the objects of the gathering.
Next Year at Nelson.
Officials were appointed to act
for the joint boards at next year's
meeting to he held the first, week
in August, 1900, at Nelson, B. C..
The ballot gave 8 votes for Nelson, 5 for Grand Forks, and it is
safe to say that had Midway and'
Columbia been represented, the
next meeting of the joint boards
would have heen held in the Boundary country.
Too much cannot be said in
praise of the hospitality shown by
Rossland to its guests. Mr. Fraser
was unremitting in his attentions
and consideration.
, A highly successful smoking
concert, under the chairmanship of
the Mayor, was organized and unlimited refreshments provided.
The local fire brigade was called
upon to display its proficiency and
amply demonstrated that it could
supply two engines and man and
have six jets of water in operation,
at a point some distance from
home, inside two minutes of being
called. The War Eagle mine and
compressor plant were visited and
thoroughly appreciated, and then
on the invitation of Mr. Aldridge,
carriages were provided for an inspection to prove the enormous
capacity of the Trail smelter, and
its ability to deal with the refractory ores of the Rossland camp.
An elegant lunch chez Mr. Aldridge and a tour around town
under the auspices of the great and
jonly Col. Topping, poet, mining
man and fish commissioner,
brought a most delightful visit to
a conclusion.
