McDonald Have a Nine Within a Stone's Throw of Town.
The Owners Now Doing Assessment Work
on the Agitator, a Mining Property Near
Earle's Sawmill.
It is said Cascade's townsite, as
well as the hills and mountains
hereabouts, are peppered with claim
stakes. When the army of pioneer
prospectors swept up the Kettle
river valley and over the mountain
ranges in this part of the country,
they, the individuals who made up
that army, did only superficial
work in the majority of cases, and
pushed or, fearing that delay
would lose to them a better proposition somewhere else, and so they
kept moving. Later comers have
not been so restless, but have prospected more thoroughly, and so it
happpens tbat many claims are
being extensively worked in this
vicinity, and which increase in
promise as that work is extended.
The claim made against this immediate section is that lead indications are not trustworthy. That
when Nature put the final topographical form to the country, she
must have been in hysterics, and
knocked all former arrangements
into a conglomerate mass of irregularities. Thus were the veins and
lodes shoved out of place and left
However this may be, prospecting is still going on with a considerable degree of success. Messrs.
Delgleish & McDonald began this
week to do $100 worth of assessment work on their claim, the Agitator, located near the westside
sawmill. The ore they take out of
it runs $5 in gold aud $7 in silver,
and so far it improves as depth of
shaft or length of tunnel is increased.
There is no part of this whole
Boundary country that does not
contain rich mineral deposit, and
when the boom age has passed and
bona fide miners get to work, then
will true and enduring prosperity
come to us all. When the boom
days are gone forever, the towns
that now suffer because the boom
has been carried beyond them, if
they have natural resources, will
take a new and substantial turn
for the better.

Distress In India.
Latest mail advices from India
aver that the situation there grows
darker every week. Three million

works. The sale of children by
starving parents is becoming common. Abandoned children are
found frequently. It is a famine
of water. Cuttle are dying off by
Before the Toronto quota for the
second contingent left for the Transvaal, the city council insured their
lives for $1,000 each.
A private of the Irish Rifles who
fought at Stormberg, in a letter
home says that when General Gat-
acre saw the position the guide had
led his troops into, he shot the
guide dead with his own  revolver.
Arrive at Cape Town with 35,060 Fresh
Hen Following.
Will the Presence of Famous Medaled and
Titled Fighters Frighten the Boers ?-Brlt-
Ish Must Now Take Aggressive Steps.
Before this writing meets the eye
of the reader intelligence of a most
important and decisive battle may
have come to hand.
During the week no decisive steps
on either side have been taken, although the dispatches indicate a
successful movement at Tugela by
Gen. Buller, and it is understood
he crossed the river, routed the enemy, took a few prisoners and guns
and returned.
The Boers are aware of the near
approach of reinforcements for the
British and they realized that what
they did must be quickly accomp-
ished, consequently have put forth
great efforts to encompass the
down-fall of, and have
kept up a furious bombardment of
that British stronghold. But Gen.
White's forces successfully repulsed
all attacks without severe losses.
At Rensburg a disaster befell the
first battalion of the Suffolk regiment. Col. Watson not knowing
the whereabouts of the concealed
enemy marched his men to within
thirty paces of Boer rifle pits, when
the latter opened fire, killing the
colonel, his adjutant and two other
officers. Excepting 150 men who
stood their ground, the battalion retreated. Those not retreating were
taken prisoners or killed.
Generals Roberts and Kitchener
arrived in Cape Town.
Tbe British Armed With Inferior Weapons.
It is coming to light that General
White has heen not only holding in
check an opposing army nearly if
not quite four times stronger than
his numerically, but is compelled
to do so with inferior weapons, and
without field glasses. After printing facts as stated by a London
Times correspondent, the Rossland
Record takes the imperial war office
to task in the following clinching
In other words, the British war
office for the last fifteen years has
allowed the Boers to secretly arm
and equip themselves in a manner
far superior to that of the British
army. It was their business to
know that guns of such range were
being made and to have bought
them; it was their business to have
known that such rifles were being
made and to have provided the
British soldier with them; it was
their business to have known that
artillery and riflemen were being
supplied with telescopes and to have
done the same. It was their business to have known that the Boer
army in particular was being armed
and equipped in this manner and
not to have allowed their secret service agents to be hoodwinked by
the display of a lot of military antiquities in the arsenal at Pretoria.
The British soldier yields to none
in bravery and skill in the use of
his weapons, but he cannot hold
his own with an inferior weapon,
any more than a crossbowmen
could dispute the field with the
primitive musket.
The officials of the war office have
allowed the army to go out of date
and have thereby proved that they
are themselves out of date. They
should give place to men who are
up-to-date and retire to the home for
aged aud infirm incapables.
Oom Paul Ignores U. S. Consul.
Word has heen received at the
State department to the effect that
the Pretoria government refuses to
recognize Consul Holli��, who went
there from Lorenzo Marquez to represent the United States government until the arrival of Secretary
Hay's son; also that the Pretoria
government refuses to recognize any
representative from the United
States. This extraordinary attitude is causing much uneasiness in
the State department and will
undoutedly cause great excitement
throughout the United States.

Camp McKinney and Greenwood

Sixty-foot Ledge of Fine Ore In-
This Group, Two Miles from Mouth of McRae
Creek, on West Side, Still Showing Up
Good Ore in Large Bodies.
A strike is reported on the
Rochester-West Mound claims.
C. W. Staples who, with A. T.
Bryant, own the Rochester group,
located on McRae creek, about two
miles from Christina Lake, was in
town Monday with a quantity of
rock taken from the Rochester and
West Mound claims, which he is
having assayed at the English store
here, by Mr. Carden.
The Rochester group consists of
the Rochester, Queen Bess, Penobscot and WeBt Mound.
The new find is a 60-foot ledge,
but whether it is the Rochester or
the West Mound ledge, has not
yet been determined.
Heretofore considerable work has
been done on these claims. Two
open cuts have been made, ov.e of
30 feet and one of 24 feet. A 67-
foot tunndl has been driven, and a
14-foot 4x6 shaft sunk.
Mr. Staples says the more they
prospect these claims the more certain he and his partner feel that
they will ultimately be found first-
class properties.
Machinery for the Lemon mine
at Camp McKinney is being freighted out to its destination  this week.
The two 80-horsepower boilers
for the Sunset mine are being placed

Grand Forks' new system of
water suppply is nearing completion. Its water mains and tank
have arrived and are being placed
in position. We hope the new
water supply for the city will bo
ample and pure. We hope, too, that
the city will repent of its disgraceful proposition to poison the waters
of the Kettle river by emptying its
sewers therein.
An eccentric auditor who attended Sir Charles Tupper's meeting in

making this a pleasant and successful feature of the winter entertainments.
It was expected that by to-day
the rails of the Columbia & Western railway extension would be in
place on the roadbed as far as Midway, which expectation has no
doubt heen realized. By this accomplishment on the part of the
railway authorities Midway is
greatly benefited, being now and for
e line time to come liable to be, the
western terminus of the Boundary
railway. While enjoying this distinction Midway will also reap
profit accruing from being a distributing point for a large and well
populated scope of country.

A Left-handed Compliment for Cascade.
In an interview with the editor
of the Westminster on his return
to Toronto, Mr. J. W. Bengough,
the cartoonist, made the following
lauditory remarks concerning one
of our fellow-townsmen: "At Cascade City labors the devoted, golden-
hearted Joseph McCoy���preaching
also at the mines for miles around,
and living in a 'manse' which must
have cost $25 to build. He has
just completed the building of a
new church���the only one in town,
where there used to be sixteen barrooms until a tire reduced the number to about one-half. He deserves
a place among the heroes, and the
western wood and prairies are full
of just such men in the ministry."
Mr.  Bengough   speaks   somewhat
disrespectfully of the Cascade City
manse, but, as he refeni in such
glowing terms to its occupant, we
aie constrained to let the matter

Such hot-headed and impulsive
lawlessness as is being indulged in
at Victoria by citizens whose patriotism has run mad, will do more
harm than good by far. Citizens
who take it upon themselves to
wreak vengeance on the heads of
their fellow-beings who do not
think as they do, are liable to involve their beloved country in international difficulties that will
seriously embarrass it at a time
when extremely anxious to avoid
foreign complication?. We refer
to the following dispatch dated Victoria Jan. 9. "Indefinite charges
of pro-Boer sympathy have resulted in boycotting and serious embarrassment to a large number of
Belgian and Swedish citizens, who
vigorously repudiate any treasonable connection. Captain Victor
Jacobson, who was reported to have
originated the Transvaal aid campaign, had his fine sloop bored and
scuttled at her moorings last night-
He and others are offering substantial rewards for the identification of
their enemies."

The public accounts for the province for the year ending June 30th,
1899, have been issued. The net

the previous year, an increase of
$89,291.63. The net expenditure
for the year was $2,156,473.86 as
against $2,001,031.85 for tbe previous year, a difference of $155,442.01.
Thus the province increased its expenditure $155,442.01 while its

63. During the previous year
$179,399.00 was spent on the new
parliament buildings, while during

Some of his political adversaries
once accused him of deceitfulness
and hypocrisy, but be rose to the
occasion. "They say I am two-
faced," said Mr. Eddy. "Now
gentlemen," looking mournful and
homelier than usual, "do you believe that if I had two faces I would
be wearing this one?" This did
up all his critics.
The Cacade-Danvllle Railroad.
While in Victoria a week or two
since Mr. L. A. Manley was interviewed by a World reporter, in regard to the application being made
to the Dominion government by
himself and others for permission
to build a new railway line from a
point on the international boundary line just below Cascade to various points in the Boundary mining
district at or near the line.
According to the World the application is for a line to run from a
point on the international boundary line at or near Russell; thence
to Grand Forks and thence to
Greenwood and Midway, taking in
all the important mining camps en
Mr. Manley says there is plenty
of capital behind tbe scheme to insure the building of the road immediately if the application is
granted, and of this he feels very
confident, as no one can doubt the
necessity of the road being built
and the practical certainty of its
being a paying proposition from
the first.
Mr. John Simpson Agreeably Surprised.
James A. Ogilvy & Sons, merchants, of Montreal, wishing to extend the business of their mail
order department, some time ago
advertised that they would send a
brief history of any Scottish clan,
and also a colored lithograph of the
tartan of such clan, to any one who
would send his address and the
name of the clan he was most
deeply interested in. Mr. John
Simpson, the principal of our
school, sent them not only his
own address, but the addresses of a
large number of other persons of
Scottish descent. He did not expect any special acknowledgement
of his kindness from them, and was
very agreeably surprised, when he
went to the postoffice last Monday,
and found a book there for him,
containing brief histories of all tbe
Scottish clans and colored lithographs of all their tartans. On the
fly leaf was written, "Compliments
of James A. Ogilvy & Sons, 1900."
The Rossland Miner's Grand
Forks correspondent writes as follows: "Should the Great Northern
fail to build their line from Republic to Grand Forks., the railway to
be built by L. A. Manley and others,
will be run through  to Republic."
Rev. Henry Steele, rector of the
Episcopalian church society ef
Graud Forks, was recently united
in marriage with Miss Louise
Hazelwood, of Vancouver, in which
city the marriage ceremony took
place on Christmas morning by
Rev. Archdeacon Pentreath.
Rev. Father Palmer has removed
his headquarters from Grand Forks
to Greenwood. The catholic church
was the first house in that city to
be dedicated to God's worship.

Bill's Luck.
A Chicago hotel manager employed a handy man by the name of
"Bill" to do his window washing.
One morning Bill, instead of doing
his work, was amusing himself hy
reading a newspaper, and as had
luck would have it, the manager
looked in.
"What's this?" he said. Bill
was dumbfounded. "Pack up
your things and go," said the manager.
So poor Bill went to the office,
drew the monev that was owing
him, and then went up stairs and
put on his good clothes. Coming
down he went to say good bye to
some of the other servants, and
there he happened to run across the
manager, who did not recognize
him in his black coat.
"Do you want a job?" asked the
"Yes sir," said Bill.
"Can you clean windows?"
"Yes sir."
"You look like a handy sort of a
fellow. I only gave the last man
$5, but I will give you $7."
"Thank you, sir," said Bill; and
in half an hour he was back in the
6ame old room���cleaning the window thiB time and not reading the
The Last Chance mine, in Skylark camp, has entered its name on

It is going the rounds of the press
that 40,000 German rifles have been

Y)ow under development. Look at the immense
���/fc dam, 400 feet long and 50 feet high, now under construction. The flume and tunnel to convey the water will be
16 feet wide, 13 feet deep and 1000 feet long. The water
will be conveyed from the mouth of the tunnel to the water-
wheels, through two iron pipes, each 8j4 feet in diameter and
2000 feet long, with a perpendicular fall of 156 feet.
Excavation for a power-house is now in progress near
the wagon road bridge, and the excavation alone will cost $10,-
000. Development of this power is now under construction
and will be prosecuted as rapidly as possible. A 10,000
horse power will be obtained, which will be used in developing electrical power to be transmitted to all the mines in the
Boundary and Christina Lake Districts.
Estimated cost of plant, complete, is $500,000.
Beautiful Christina Lake and Surroundings!
The fisherman's delight and the hunter's paradise. This
lake is 18 miles long and from one to three miles in width.
le Mineral Wealth
About Cascade City, while practically undeveloped, is
most promising, and marvelous wealth awaits the hand of
man to reveal the country's hidden resources.
Look closely at our advantageous location and you will not
fail to have a good impression of
Cascade, the Gateway City.
In a report to the interior department on the geology of the
Philippine islands George F. Becker,
of the United States Geological
Survey, giveB some interesting information regarding tho mineral
resources of the group. Mr. Becker
says that while gold exist* in both
Luzon and Mindino, it is comparable rather 10 that of the Carolina*
and Virginia than to the western
gold fields of the United States, and
a rush to the Philippine fields
would, he predicts, result in disappointment. The report says "copper deposits at Lapanto seem rich
and extensive, but very expensive
roads will be needed to render them
available. The high quality of
some of the iron ores of Luzon is
beyond question, but the lignite of
the islands is not adapted to iron
smelting. The so-called coal is a
good lignite. Its heating effect if
from two-thirds to three-quarter*
of that of the best steaming coal.
There are great quantities of thin
fuel, and much of it will probably
be delivered at a profit on vessels
at $2.50 Mexican ton."

The immense water tank being
built by the 0. P. R just beyond the
bridge west of town, will have a
capacity of nearly 50,000 gallons.
The construction of the section
house along with the tankhouse
and new siding, a commodious and
imposing depot building to be erected in the early spring months,
all tends to indicate the carrying
out of the original plans of the
railway company with regard to
Cascade, as a smelter town. For a
long distance from east and west,
the approach hy rail to Cascade is
down grade over which heavy trains
of ore can be hauled at small cost.
Taking these facts into consideration
in connection with the almost unlimited water-power to be had here,
faith in Cascade's future should be
well based.
The curves and grades on the C.
P. R. as it makes its exit from town
going weBt renders it impossible to
get over that portion of the road
with more than half the number of
cars that can be pulled almost anywhere else on the line. To obviate
this difficulty a siding has been put
in a few hundred yards above the
new water-tank. This will enable
the train men to "double" out to
the sidetrack���that is, take part of
the train out there, leave it, come
back and gel the balance of the
cars, taking those from the siding
and going on with a full train.
The Spokane Daily Stock Report
has ceased to exist, and in its stead
there comes to onr exchange table
the Spokane Daily Record. It is
owned and conducted by the parties
who so ably managed the Report,
and does not relax its efforts in behalf of the mining interests. It
supplements mining records and
information with other records
of vital eoncern to all engaged in
the industrial affairs of Washington and British Columbia, and in
its especial fields will no doubt
prove a success.
The Midway Advance came to
hand last week printed on wrapping paper���owing to delay in the
transportation of its print paper
from the east. The Advance, if
printed on birch bark, would still
be a good local newspaper.
The change in the C. P. R. passenger time table, which took effect
last Saturday night at 12 o'clock,
now brings the westbound train in
at 2:02, and the eastbound at 3:24.
These figures will probably hold
till the trains begin running
through Bulldog tunnel.
Application has been made for
foreshore rights on tho first and
second narrows, Vancouver harbor,

J. S. Woodruff, special agent in
the department of mining and
metallurgy for the United States
commissioner general to the Pari**
exposition, is in the city for the
purpose of arranging for a collection of the ores of this section.
He has made arrangement with
Bolster & Goodrich to receive
Bam pies at their office, corner Howard and Riverside, and requests that
the ores designed for the exposition
be sent to them. Where specimens
are of great value, bond will he
given for their safe return.
The speoimdns may not be of
great size, as it is more quality
than quantity that is desired, the
space for their display being limited.
It is hoped that this section will
furnish a good collection of fine
specimens of gold, silver, copper
and lead, as it is well qualified to
do; and although their collection
may entail some little trouble, the
mining interests will be well repaid
for it.
The interest of English investors
in the mining fields of this northwest is well known, but that a
large amount of French capital has
been coming into the country is a
fact of which few are aware; nor
that there is published in Paris a
bright little mining journal, which
we haye on our exchange list,
devoted almost exclusively to the
mining interests of British Columbia. In its columns you can see
tbe late mining items of interest
not only from Rossland aud the
Slocan, but of the Republic camp
as well.
A fact which shows so clearly the
interest taken in the mines of this
section hy denizens of the gay
French capital, that it is almost
needless to add that a judicious display of the ores of this section will
certainly have great effect in drawing more capital from that point to
this region for investment.���Spokane Daily Record.
The site for Rossland's new
Federal huilding has been selected.
It is located at the corner of
Lincoln street and Columbia

the citizens pay $4,500 and the
government the balance.
