MGR, ALDR1D6E, OF TRAIL, HE
He Tells the Record Something About
the New Enterprise, and What it
Means to this Section.���Refineries
Also Being Planned For���Engineers Now Cross Sectioning the Site.
Wednesday evening W. H. Aid-
ridge, manager of the Trail smelter,
arrived in Cascade. He was accompanied by L. E. Campbell, manager
of the West Kootenay Light and
Power Co., at Rossland, better
known as the Bonnington Falls
concern, and by C. A. Stoess, a surveyor, who has had many years
experience in railway and general
engineering.
Mr. Aldridge came by appointment to confer with the owners of
the Cascade townsite, relative to
the erection of a large smelting
plant near this city, which is to be
utilized in the treatment of the
Boundary, Christina lake and
Burnt Basin ores. All day Thursday was spent in looking over the'
immense power at the falls and in
tramping over the site selected for
the smelter, about one and a half
miles south of the city, on a high
bluff above the Kettle river.
For some time negotiations have
been quietly going on between
Manager Stocker, of the Townsite
Co., and the land department of
the C.P.R., and with the exception
of some minor details, of little interest to the general public, the
matter is now in definite shape.
After his final conference with the
townsite owners, Mr. Aldridge ex*
plained the plans to some extent in
regard to this new enterprise, to a
representative of the Record. Asked
in regard to the capacity of the
new smelting plant, Mr. Aldridge
��a,��d:
" We will probably make it a
1000-ton smelter, so as to be able
to handle all ores that are likely to
be offered. We do not believe in
erecting a 200 or even a 400 ton
plant here, as we would find it
more economical to haul the 0 :es
to Trail for treatment if no more
daily tonnage than that could be
obtained in this district."
The cost of building a smelter of
1000 tons daily capacity will exceed $500,000, and will give steady
employment to upwards of 500
men when completed. The stack
alone will require 800,000 brick
and the buildings in connection in
proportion.
In Cascade Mr. Aldridge and all
who have looked into the matter
carefully have found an ideal site.
The high elevation above the
river gives ample dumping grounds
for the slag and refuse for many
years to come. Already the lack of
this room at the Trsil smelter is becoming a serious question. Good
clay can be found here for making
the vast quantities of brick to he
used in the many buildings to be
when that institution was once in
working order. It is the plan to
have extensive refineries and factories in connection therewith.
These additional enterprises will
require considerable land, which
wan an important factor, doubtless,
in the choice of this point.
CHEAP ORE TREATMENT.
One point on which Mr. Aldridge,
in his interview, laid, particular
stress, was that the C. P. R. had
decided already to adopt a most
liberal policy in the conduct of the
smelter at this point, as regards
freight and treatment rates. The
rates on Rossland ores, since the
C. P. R. acquired the Trail smelter
and railway connections, had been
reduced from the high price of $11.50
to $7.50 per ton for freight and
treatment; then to $7.00 ; and now
it was probable another reduction
would soon be granted.
This same liberal plan is to he
adopted here, which will undoubtedly encourage to a marked degree
the development of many low grade
to the beginning of work on the
foundations of the several buildings
to be erected.
Hughes Held for Trial
Frederick K. Hughes, who was
sent to Grand Forks jail ten days
ago, charged with the passing of a
worthless $75 check in this city,
was brought up for hearing yesterday by Justice Rochussen. He was
represented by Solicitor Earnest
Miller. Bookkeeper Chapman,
from the bank of British Noith
America at Rossland, on which the
check was drawn, was present to
testify, as was Hugh McGuire of
the Forks. Hughes was ordered
taken to the Grand Forks jail, in
default of $1,000 bail, to await trial
at the next session of the county
court, to be held at Grand Forks
on the 27th inst. by Judj>e Spink*.
An East Kootenay Opinion
The Cascade City Record is on*
of the best papers published in
British Columbia, although only a
few weeks old.���Cranbrook Herald-
Mail Route Needed.
If the postal authorities-
would establish a mail
route between Cascade and
Brooklyn, at leant three
days would be saved in the
receipt of eastern Canadian
mail, and from one to two
days on that from the
coast. At present these
mails take the circuitous
route via Penticton, with
only tri-weekly service,
which is exceedingly unsatisfactory to the entire Boundary district. In addition
the towns of Gladstone
and English Point would
be served by the proposed
new route. The matter
should be taken up and
vigorously pressed by the
Taxpayers' Association.
Bobby Wills now has a
bid in for carrying mails on
this route, receipt having
heen acknowledged.
erected. Economical power in any
desired quantity is known hy all
to be right at hand. Plenty of
adjacent acreage is available for
homes for the large number of employees. Lime, is said, can be had
nearby. In short, the site at Cascade, beyond any question, possesses every conceivable advantage for
the location and successful operation of an immense smelting Indus*
try.
All this was understood by the
head officials of the C. P. R., when
negotiations were begun to acquire
title to the property. In order not
to overlook any eligible site, the entire Boundary district was thoroughly investigated, but not one
point could tie found where one-
naif the advantages enjoyed hy
Cascade, could be found. It was
and is the natural and logical location for this great enterprise, and
was accordingly selected.
Mr. Aldridge stated further to
the Record man that his company
did not propose to stop with the
construction of a smelting plant.
prospects with immense ledges.
Not only this, but the large size of
the smelting plant will enable the
concern to quote rates to large
mines that would not be possible
by a smelter of comparatively small
capacity, even if conducted by the
mine owner.
If this plan of doing business is
carried out by the C. P. R.���and it
doubtless will be���it means that
the new concern will do a big paying business from the first day that
the smelter is blown in, which will
increase rapidly.
Preliminary surveys have already
been made hy the railway engineers
for the spur from the main line to
to the smelter site. Mr. Stoess, who
came with Mr. Aldridge, will remain here and attend to the work
of cress-sectioning, etc., and generally looking after the preliminaries.
This he has already begun. Mr.
Aldridge will return in about a
month���after getting married and
spending the honeymoon in the
east. Doubtless hy that time there
will be other developments, looking
Will Move Here Soon.
Jack Stewart, superintendent of
construction for Mann, Foley Bros.
& Larson, and a member of that
firm, came over the tote road from
Brooklyn last Wednesday, on a
tour of inspection. To a Record
man he stated that the contractors
were not quite ready to move their
headquarters from Brooklyn to
Cascade yet, hut he thought would
do so before long.
Mr. Stewart also stated that as
yet no contract had been let for a
spur from Greenwood to Copper
Camp, as rumored in Greenwood
early in the week.
Killed IN His Cabin
Peter Gaetano, an Italian employed on the railway construction,
was instantly killed in his cabin
last Thursday morning, by a piece
of flying rock from a blast, some
600 feet distant. He was employed
by A. Scarpelli, who had a piece of
work near McRae's Landing. The
remains were brought to Cascade
for inquest and burial. THE   CASCADE   RECORD,  JANUARY   7,  1899

Freighting From Brooklyn
Now that fine sleighing prevails
between here and Brooklyn, it is
said to be the intention of the
C. P. R. to make arrangements to
haul the bulk of the Boundary
freight into this district in that
way. H. McDonell, of the freight
department at Nelson, is now in
this section looking into the mutter
and endeavoring to get a freighting
outfit of sufficient capacity to handle the goi.ds sure to be offered.

The lively town of Bosshurg had
another hold up last Sunday night
The depot office was held up December 10th, but nothing of value
was secured. This time a saloon
was the object of loot by the robbers.
About 11:30 p. m. two masked
men entered the Turf saloon by the
rear door, jffbgwtply.person in the

In attempting to open the safe
the robber with the gun momentarily relaxed his vigilance and
Weisgerber took advantage of the
fact by jumping head foremost
through the window, landing on
the outside, his fall being accompanied by a shattering of glass and
a yell for assistance.
Alarmed at the noise the robbers
left the safe and ran through the
back door to the alley, where they
had a horse in waiting. Weisgerber returned to the saloon^ secured
a gun, and in company with several citizens started ajter the robbers, overtaking them in the alley
as they were mounting their horses.
Fire was.immediately opened by
both sides, iabout 15 shots being
exchanged, though no one was hit.
The robbers rode rapidly away
pursued a short distance by one or
two citizens on horseback. Owing
to the delay in securing horses it
was impossible to overtake the robbers.
In the fight one of the desperadoes had his hat shot from his
head. It was picked up later and

An Awkward Moment.
A Tioga youth started to take
his beet girl to Philadelphia one
evening last week. The couple
boarded a street cur, and when the
conductor came in for the fare, the1
young man dived down in his
pocket. To his horror, he discov-
ed that his pocket was absolutely
empty. Looking up at the conductor, he blurted out: "I've
changed my pants and left my
money at home." Then he looked
questioningly at the girl. She
shook her head, and murmured:
���'So have I." Tho conductor grinned, the' maiden blushed and the
young man signalled to stop.

SATURDAY, JANUARY 7,1899.
CASCADE A SHELTER CITY
In another column of this issue
of the Record will be noticed an
article on the great smelting plant
to be erected in Cascade during this
year hy the C P. R. This piece of
news is one that gives the publishers of the Record great pleasure to
make public. It is the most important information to the entire
Boundary country yet published
in these or any other columns, for
it means that the gigantic low
grade ledges of this section can and
will be treated at a handsome profit to the mine owners, right here
on the ground. This will give an
impetus to the mining industry
throughout this district���an impetus that will ultimately make it
the richest and most populous part
of British Columbia.
A feature of the present smelter
situation in Cascade is that the
proposition is backed by a concern
that does not have to wait for the
securing of stock subscriptions, nor
the payment of subscriptions after
being made. When it decides on a
movement, it merely proceeds to
execute it, no matter how far reaching the result may be. No special
flourish of trumpets is given, nor is
it advertised throughout the length
and breadth of the land for months
previous. The work is decided on,
the details arranged in due time
and when the work is undertaken
it is pushed to a speedy completion.
Few persons realize what it
means to erect a 1000-ton smelting
plant in Cascade���a plant twice as
large as any now located in British
Columbia. In the first place it
means the expenditure of $500,000
in the construction department
alone, employing a large force of
workmen. Then, when completed
it means the steady employment
of 500 or more men and their families, or upwards of 1500 or 2000
people. All of these are consumers
and will form a good sited colony
of themselves.
But it is not the intention of the
C. P. R. to stop with the erection of
a large smelter here. Arrangements
are now in progress for the acquiring of sufficient land at the smelter
site, a mile and a half south of
town, for the purpose of building
extensive refineries in connection
with the smelter. This, when completed will require the services of
another small army of employees.
The Record has all along believed that Cascade was the true
smelter point for the Boundary
country, as it has a dosen advantages not possessed hy any other
location. The dumping ground is
ample, and will last for many
years. Power can be obtained
right here in the most inexpensive
form. There is plenty of room for
smelter proper, for refineries and
for homes for the many employees
required. Not the least important
is that it is a down hill haul on the
new railway from all the surrounding camps, and coke can be brought
there economically from the Crow's
Nest Pass.
With the building of this great
plant Cascade will take its place in
the front rank of Boundary cities.
It will grow and prosper, and those
who stay with it will share accordingly. The bright sun of dawning
prosperity is already beginning to
shed it rays over this favored city
and its glittering semi-circle of
mines.

The "oldest inhabitant" has

hi j cold weather experience of years
ago, while he toasted his shins and
the mercury outside played hide-
and-seek with the zero mark. As
a matter of fact the weather has
been exceptionally severe here this
week.     	
Ore shipments from British Columbia mines have shown a remarkable increase for 1898 over any
previous year. With the big Boundary mines on the steady shipping
list, the ratio of increase for 1899
will he even more marked than the
year just closed.

When they Skipped.
An Italian named Anionio 8��r-
valli was found dead <>n the road
between Niagara and the summit
last Tuesday, ft is supposed he
pot drunk and fell asleep on the
road and thus froze to death. Provincial Constable Cox went up to
investigate this matter. ���
.; Messrs. Stabil and Oliver have
left for purls unknown, carrying
With them money to the tune of
$4,000. They, for some time past,
carried on a private banking business here and at Brooklyn, being
largely patronized by their Italian
countrymen, who entrusted sums
varying from $20 up to $200 with
ttiem for transmission to Italy. As
note of the money ever reached its
destination, some of their patrons
became uneasy, thus causing the
sudden departure of Stabile and
Oliver. It is rumored that Oliver
is wanted in Nova Scotia for a murder that he committed there. The
name Oliver is only an asrumed
one, his proper name being ttaphall
Vungaro. He carries a long scar
on his neck from a wound, supposed to have been received while
struggling with the man he murdered.
Angus Stuart of the Inland Revenue Department arrived at Niagara last evening and was busy inspecting tobaccos and cigars.
Dr. Foster and Provincial Constable Cox left this morning to inspect the body of Antonio Servalli
who died from exposure.
Messrs. Hughes and Crawford
have moved into their new premises
on Main street, and now carry quite
an assorted stock of goods.
Now that the contracts have been
let past the summit, the road is
almost blocked with teams loaded
with provisions, forage, camp outfits, etc.
