 THE CASCADE RECORD
Published in the Interest* of the Boundary and Christina Lake  Mining Districts
Vol. I.
CASCADE, B. C, JULY 8, 1899.
No. 35.
BOUNDARY FREIGHT RATES
First Schedule of Construction Rates as
Far as Cascade.
ON THE NEW LINE OF RAILWAY
Id Car Loads Pint Clan Is 74c, Second 62,
Third 50, Fourth 38 from West Robson.
F. W. Peters, assistant traffic
agent of the C. P. R. at Nelson has
arrived at an agreement with
chief engineer Tye as to a schedule
of freight rates at which the contractors of the Robson-Penticton
road will carry goods over the
Boundary Creek branch as soon af>
it is opened up to Cascade, which
it is affirmed will be on or about
August 1.
Merchants throughout the
Boundary have been holding orders
hack as long as possible, though a
good deal has been routed over the
new line and is now awaiting transportation. H. E. Macdonell, contracting freight agent, is expected
in Cascade next Monday, on a business trip through the Boundary,
and will give merchants all possible information in regard to the
new schedules, It will be a couple
of months, at least, before the road
reaches Greenwood, after the steel
is laid tn Cascade, and consequently freighting by teams must he
done from Cascade.
The stations along the line from
West Robson to Midway, with their
distances in miles from West Robson, are as follows:
Shields  10
Coykendalls...      U
Tuunel    22
Summit  SO
Gladstone  88
Sutherland Creek   49
Cascade City....  64
Gilpin's  60
Grand Forks  AT
Niagara  72
Eholt  81
Greenwood      81
Midway  W
The construction freight tariff
from West Robson to Cascade, in
carloads, calculated in cents per
hundred pounds, and classified
from class first to class tenth, is as
follows: First 74, second 62, third
50, fourth 38, fifth 34, sixth 31,
seventh 26, eighth 27, ninth 27 and
tenth 19.
Speculation is still rife as to the
exact time when shipments may he
expected over the new line. The
tracklayers are a few miles this
side of Gladstone, and those who
have heen there assert that it
cannot possibly reach Cascade before September 1. Against this,
however, Jack Stewart, superin-
tenndent of construction, and thoroughly familiar with the work and
the. bridge building delays now being encountered, informs the Record thut Cascade residents will see
thi tracklaying engine and crew
on or before August 1. The track
is now about nine miles distant
and there are only seven bridges
that have not been built. The big
structures over Baker and Sutherland creeks are up, and that over
Kettle river, 1,600 feet long, will be,
ready in good time.
DOMINION DAY CELEBRATION.
Grand Porks, Greenwood and Nelson Have
Immense Crowds.
Nurly every htrse arid vehicle
in Cascade was in use last Saturday to carry our residents to the
Dominion Day celebration at
Grand Forks, and as a consequence
there was a big delegation from the
Gateway City present on that occasion.
The celebration was a great success, although practically, no attempt was made at decoration.
The new Grand Forks brass band
furnished the music. At the last
moment Greenwood failed to materialize and there was no baseball
match. In the free for all horse
race, Ernest Kennedy's Ben Ledi
won first place arid Claude Cre-
gan's flyer took second. The
events were continued over to Monday, but the rain of that day interfered in the carrying out of the
program. People from all over
the Boundary were present, and
Grand Forks was crowded, a great
attraction being the string of fast
horses.
Greenwood held its celebration
Monday and Tuesday, and it also
was an undoubted success. The
Grand Forks ball twirlers were
present and had a walk-over, the
score being 13 to5. Rock drilling,
horse racing, tug of war, lacrosse
match, hose race and a number of
small sports made up a long program which was enjoyed by the
crowds of people who came from
far and near to take part. Nearly
$3,000 was hung up in prizes for
the various events.
Nelson, B. C. has for years made
a great occasion of Dominion Day,
and this year's celebration eclipsed
allprevious efforts. In the huh
and hub hose reel face Rossland
won and Nelson took first money
in the wet test. Base ball game,
tennis tournament, lacrosse match,
horse races and athletic and aquatic sports were held, and the immense crowd   enjoyed   them all.
A feature of the above three celebrations was the rock drilling
contests, and in each one, in the
three cities the same team, M.
Burns and E. Stevenson, of Rossland, were the winners.
TELEPHONE EXCHAN0E FOR CASCADE.
One Will Be Installed Here In the Very Near
Future.
Cascade is to have a telephone
exchange in the near future, providing a sufficient number of her
business men come forward and
subscribe for the same. That they
will do this there is no doubt.
Local Manager Cameron, of the
Columbia Telephone & Telegraph
Co., has been interviewing some of
the business men this week on the
subject, and has met with considerable success, so that the work of
installing the exchange will begin
shortly. Each telephone supplied
will be charged for at the rate of
$3 per month, which is considered
reasonable.

Among the Miners
The mining outlook in the Christina lake section is in a most satisfactory condition, all things considered. Properties that have been
taken hold of this year are with
few exceptions, proving up better
and better as development continues, and consequently the owners are pleased with the results to
date. New claims are being taken
hold of.almost weekly and proo-
pectors are doing assessments on
claims held by them, With gratifying results. It is, therefore, safe to
say that the summer of 1899 will
see remarkable strides in the mineral development of the region.
Christina Lake Progress.
R. Dal by Morkill, who recently
bonded the Cannon Ball group, at
English Point, arrived in Cascade
Inst Saturday with J. W. Spauld-
ing, who was one of the original
locators of this property, having
first discovered it nine years ago,
and located it in 1896. The two
visited the property, and Mr.
Spaulding remained, packed in
supplies and is superintending development with a force of men.
Assays1 as high, as $300 in gold
have been obtained. Mr. Morkill
has gone east, and a strong
stock company will be formed to
develop the property. He is connected with the British America
Corporation, and Ex-Gov. Mackintosh is personally interested in the
Cannon Ball group.
D. C. Beach is steadily driving
the tunnel on the Victoria, and reports good progress. Frank E.
Starkey, who recently bought a
controlling interest, has offers of
all the capital needed to carry out
development on this splendid
property!
Development on the Chamberlain, three miles up McRae creek,
is being prosecuted steadily, and
some beautiful sylvailite is being
encountered in the shaft, which is
now down about 20 feet. Considerable shipping ore is already on
the dump.
Around Burnt Basin.
Much interest centers in the
development of the Mystery. After driving No. 1 tunnel over 100
feet, Manager Littlejohn has begun
the No. 2 or lower tunnel, and this
is now in about 25 feet. He has
crosscut one ledge, and is in fine
looking rock at this time. He now
feels confident that the Mystery
will prove to be a great mine. He
has also set a force at work again
on the Ennismore, owned hy much
the same people.
Substantial buildings are being
put up on the Mother Lode, in the
Burnt Basin, and work continues
with unabated vigor under Supt.
Alexander. Mike Shick, one of
the locators, is highlv elated st the
quantities of free gold bearing rock
being uncovered.
J. B. Ferguson, who took a bond
on the Cascade group,  on   Gran
ville mountain, was in town Tues>��
day. Ed. Terzick, one of the loca*
tors, hopes to begin work again
soon.
On tbe Canyon Creek, at Gladstone, assays of $41 in gold have
been gotten, and as there is a whale
of a ledge, Jim Cameron feels g< od
over the outlook.
On the Iron Mountain, Al. Stewart has driven a 25 foot tunnel,
the face being in iron and quartz.
Assessment work has been completed by Frank Asprey on the
Arlington, in the Burnt Basin, and
he h::s traced the Solid Gold lead
to his claim.
Harry Denton has just finished
assessment on tho Golden Crown,
up McRae creek, and says he has
a most encouraging showing.
IN AND AROUND CASCADE.
Tuesday's storm brought Kettle
river up two feet, with a jump, but
it has been falling since.
Collector Rose is gratified that
since July 1 the Cascade custom
house has been made a warehousing point.
The two hotels at Deer Park, opposite Brooklyn, on Lower Arrow
lake, were burned to the ground
last week.
Friday morning's mail stage went
through town at a gallop and
neither stopped to leave or take on
mail. This is the Columbia Stage
Co.
A. M. Button has returned from
a ten days trip to Spokane. He
tells an exciting story of having a
rattlesnake for a bed fellow one
night near Hall's bridge.
George S. Beer, manager of the
Nelson Hardware Co., was in Cascade Thursday, on his return from
his first trip into the Boundary,
with which he is greatly pleased.
N. McLellan, the feedman, returned Monday from a buinesstrip
to Nelson. His business is growing so fast that he has already arranged to open up a branch in
Grand Forks.
A reliable observer states that
residents of Brooklyn, when oppressed with ennui, amuse themselves by throwing stones through
the windows in the many vacant
buildings in that town.
It is prohal.le that the next sitting of the hoard of Boundary
creek license commissioners will be
held at some point further up the
line, probably at Eholt, or near
there. The licenses hereabouts
have all heen passed upon.
Last month nearly 250 feet were
made in the long railway tunnel
through Bull Dog mounts in. This
month it is expected that Olaf
Olson will make even a better
showing. About 1.200 feet have
now been completed, out of the
3,000 and over. THE  CASCADE  RECORD
July 8,  18M
WILL GIVE A STRAWBERRY SOCIAL.
And the Ladles of Cascade Will Entertain
You.
Next Friday evening a strawberry festival will be held at the
Cascade Auditorium by the ladies
of Cascade, for the benefit of the
church building fund. At a meeting held yesterday, it was also decided lo have a musical and literary entertainment in connection
with the social. Admission will
he free, a charge of 25 cents being
made for strawberries and cream
and cake.
The arrangement committee consists of Mesdames Stocker, Wolverton, Wilson, Donnelly, Monro,
Monnier, McRae and Anderson.
On the program committee are
Miss Darrow, Mesdames Bremner,
Rochussen, Sinclair, Mr. Stocker
. and Rev. J. McCoy. The decoration committee consists of Messrs.
Stocker, Ferguson, Shepherd, May-
all, Parsons and Willcox. A
choice musical program is already
in course of preparation, and a
good time is assured to all who attend.
Celebrated Entertainer Coming.
Lovers of refined entertainment
will be glnd of an opportunity of
hearing Miss Marietta LaDell, B.
E.. elocutionist and impersonator,
an honor graduate of Philadelphia
Schorl of Oratory, who will appear
in Cascade Tuesday evening next.
Miss LaDell has decided to give
one concert here when passing
through from Greenwood to Spokane. Our citizens should turn
out well to hear this celebrated
artist, who is delighting large and
appreciative audidnces everywhere,
as it is seldom we are favored by a
visit from professionals of Miss
LaDell's ability and populr rity.
Wonderland and Vitascope Co.
.. Monday evening the Wonderland and Vitascope Co. will give
an entertainment at the Cascade
Auditorium. The members of this
company, comprising 10 people,are
well recommended, and it is said
they give a good show. In addition to the moving picture machine
their performing ponies and high
jumping hounds are said to be
atone worth the price of admission.
The picture machine shows the
CorbettFitzoimmons fight, battleship Maine, and many other interesting events.
Opened Under New Auspices.
Last Monday C. H. May, the
owner of the property, took charge
of the Montana hotel bar, and
opened up with an entirely new
stock of the best goods obtainable.
Mr. May has many friends in this
section, who wish him a large meas
ure of success, which they believe
he is sure to attain.
One of our citizens, says an exchange, by the name of Moon, the
other day was presented with his
first, a very fine baby. This was a
new moon. The father celebrated
the event by drinking himself full.
This was a full moon. When he
awoke from his drunken stupor all
be had loft was two-bits. This was,
the last quarter. His mother-in
law beat him over the head with a
club, thus giving him a total
eclipse.

ACHANQE IS AT HAND.
Attorney-General Martin was
asked to resign his portfolio this
week by Premier Semlin for three
reasons, viz., neglecting duties of
office, disclosing cabinet secrets,
and conduct unbecoming a minister of the crown at the Mackintosh banquet at Rossland, the latter disgraceful event having been
thoroughly ventilated in the public prints.
Mr, Martin declined to resign,
saying he had faithfully attended
to his duties, had not disclosed
government secrets, and had never
been asked for an explanation of
the Rossland affair. Lieut.-Gov.
Mclnnes is absent in Atlin, and
will be gone for a month. Knowing ones assert that he left Victoria
for a time expressly to be away at
the break-up, which seemed inevitable.
And so Martin goes around
serenely, knowing that nothing can
be done till the return of Mr. Mclnnes. In the meantime, of course,
the members of the cabinet are decidedly at outs, and these events
have set the politicians at the
coast all agog, wondering what the
next move will be. The Attorney-
General has gradually alienated
his erstwile friends, and scarcely a
paper in the province endorses
him or his acts at thie writing.
There seems to be little doubt of
the dissolution of the present government, and as a consequence an
early appeal to the people once
more. There is talk of a readjustment, but Joe is a fighter and if he
gets out he'll pull down the whole
government with him. It is asserted in some quarters that a new
election will be conducted strictly
along Dominion party lines. It remains to be peen, however, just
what form it will take.
"Construction" rates will be the
first schedule for freight on the
new railway, when completed to
Cascade. Later, the tariff will be
readjusted and lowered. So-called
"construction" rates will encourage shippers to continue bringing
in goods over the old route. The
new schedule, extracts from which
are published in another column
of this issue of the Record, will be
perused with much care and interest by Boundary business men.
NOTE AND COMMENT.
It is said that Joe Martin is hot
Cotton-ing to anybody just now.
Fighting Joe Martin seems to he
having all kinds of scraps on his
hands, and he's bavin? an excellent opportunity of justifying the
sobriquet.
What about the school house
appropriation for Cascade? If the
new building iB to be ready for the
fall term, it must be started at
once.
The attention of the editor of the
Grand Forks Miner is called
to an article on page 6 of
this issue of the Record. He can
learn what a Gateway City is,
therein.
The New, Dei.ver Ledge thinks
the forest fire season is about due
and the fool who starts them is
still alive. The law against it is
still in force, but like some other
laws in the Slocan it is almost
dead.
Twelve months ago a telephone
exchange in Cascade would have
been considered out of the question
for several years to come Such
an institution iB now assured in a
few weeks. As Br'er John<��ing remarked:   "The world do move."
The Vernon News says: "More
fine showers this week." There
have been many showers��� a bout
4,478 since June 1, by close calculation���but they are now being
looked upon here as anything but
fine. A few less would be quite as
acceptable in these parts.
From private information the
Record is assured that the surveyors now at work running location
lines between Cascade and North-
port, referred to in our last issue,
are working directly for the Great
Northern railway, and that it is
the intention to build a railway
between.the two points.
The greatest annual gathering of
Christians is now in session at Detroit���the Christian Endeavor Society, of the world. It is the 18th
annual meeting of an organization
that has 3,500,000 members in 55,-
000 societies, scattered throughout
every country on the globe. The
Society has been productive of untold good.
The Nelson Miner remarks that
the Canadian rule of the road is to
turn to the right. The Victoria
Colonist disputes the statement,
asserting that that is the Aineri
can rule, the Canadian custom being to turn to the left, so that
vehicles may pass each other on
the driver's side. In some localities, teamsters hog the entire road
when permitted, and turn' neither
to the right or left.

connecting with the Inland Telephone Co., of Spokane, cut loose
from the Spokane & B. C. Co., who
built the pioneer line north from
Spkane. The Inland Co. also recently cut loose entirely from the
Spokane & B. C. Co. This meant
a hitter fight and the latter concern
has begun t>uit against the Inland
Co. for $205,000, and is also pre*
paring to put in a large exchange
in Spokane. So much for the lower end of the scrap.
In British Columbia the competition between the Columbia Co.
(the, new connection of the Spokane & B. C. Co.) and the Nelson
& Vernon is equally sharp. The
Columbia Co. is now putting in
exchanges in Greenwood, Columbia and Grand Forks, and will
soon have them in Cascade and
Rossland. Their opposition, the
Nelson & Vernon, is doing just
about the same thing, and it looks
as though telephones would soon
be as thick as. gold-copper prospects in the Boundary.
At present the Columbia Co. has
no connections with, Rossland, but
id making them as rapidly as possible, and in addition has its line
nearly completed to Camp McKin-
nev, 4Q miles hevond Greenwood,
the terminus of, the old line Both
concerns have lines working into
Republic camp.
ROBBED HER MAJESTY'S MAIL
Oreenwood-Pentlcton Stage was Held up by
Two Bandits.
Last Saturday night's mail between Greenwood and Penticton
was held up by two highwaymen
at Johnson creek, 12 miles from
Camp McKinney.
As the stage driven by Joe Snod-
grass, was ascending a hill, two
masked men stepped from behind
the trees, covered the stage with
revolvers, and ordered the driver
to throw out the'mail. He did so
without resistence, as each bandit
had two revolvers. The passengers, A. Cameron, Greenwood; C.
Coles Montreal, and W. McKay
and wife Duluth, were not molested. The robbers then ordered the
driver to go on.
The men were interrupted in
rifling the twelve sacks of mail by
the arrival of two freighting teams.
They cut open the sacks and escaped with one containing the
Greenwood and Grand Forks registered mail. The other mail was
recovered by the freighters.
It is suppoBod the bandits were
after the monthly hank returns
and other valuable packages.
The highwaymen probable escaped across the boundary line,
which was two miles distant, although the provincial poliece have
been looking for them.

THE CASCADE RECORD
BY THE WAYSIDE
Horse thieves have been plying
their nefarious vocation of late on
both sides of the line this spring
and summer, with considerable
success, hut one at least, has done
it for the last time. His name is
Chas. McDonald, a quarter-breed,
and while being pursued last week
by a posse of deputy sheriffs from
Republic, was run down, showed
fight and was shot and killed hy
Jake Griswold, a member of the
posse. It happened close to the
international boundary. It is to
he hoped that the lesson will be a
salutary one to those who have a
habit of taking ropes���with horses
at the other end. A horse thief is
minus friends in all classes of
society.
Few persons outside the railroad
world realize the difficulties encountered in building our new line
of railway. The charter does hot
permit the C. P. R. to go within
one hundred yards of the international bounday line, therefore, to
reach the Boundary district it is
necessary to cross mountains, bore
tunnels and build a road bed that
costs for many miles of the distance, nearly or quite $35,000 per
mile. From Robson, which is an
elevation of 1,500 feet, the road
climbs to McRae creek summit at
an elevation of 4,000 feet. Then
it comes down to Cascade at 1,500
feet, with another climb to an
elevation of 3,100 feet over Eholt
summit, and down again to Midway, which is at an elevation of
1,900 feet. Near Brooklyn a tunnel 3,000 feet long has been bored
through Bulldog mountian, besides
a dozen others, varing from 300 to
700 feet in length, to say nothing
of the millions and millions of feet
of timber in the many bridges and
trestles on the route. Beyond a
doubt it is one of the most difficult
pieces of railway construction ever
undertaken on the Pacific slope.'
The Columbia Stage Co., still
persists in not delivering mail
sacks promptly at the Cascade
postoffice. In fact, it is the exception when a day passess that this
apology for a mail carrier does not
carry some of the Cascade pouches
beyond their destination. Frank
Corte, the Brooklyn-Cascade mail
carrier; on the hurricane deck of
k bucking cayuse, fulfills the conditions of his contract in an infinitely more satisfactory manner.
The business men of this section
will have an additional reason for
being thankful, when the railway
track���now only eight or ten miles
away���reaches Cascade. They will
then not be at the mercy of this
miserably conducted stage line for
prompt postal facilities.
Merchants in tbe Boundary are
now inquiring as to freight rates on
the new railway, which will begin
to haul into this section as soon as
the track gets to Cascade. From
schedules already received, however, these- rates will hardly be
lower than the present wagon
route. This will be far from satisfactory to our business men, and
the C. P. R. will beyond a doubt
lose good business by. the inaugur
ation of such a schedule. When
freight is hauled from Bossburg to
Cascade for 50 cents per hundred,
a much lower rate must be quoted
from West Robson to secure the
trade. Otherwise the railway
might better have not been built.

THE  CASCADE  RECORD
JulyB, 1889
WHAT IS THE BOUNDARY COUNTRY?
Which Ii the Gateway City ?-Strlkln| Array
of Incontrovertible Pacts.
It ia thut mineral hearing district immediately to the west of the
Buck Range mountain*, lying parallel with and directly adjacent to
the international boundary line;
and Cascade ia unquestionably the
gateway thereunto.
In the mouths of many witnesses
shall the truth be established, but
in the ink of many writers it may
be again blotted out, and without
safe guidance, it must be indeed
difficult for strangers in a far land
to form a correct opinion.
Statements may lose claim to he
considered facts when they become
tainted with personal interests; besides there are front gateways and
hack gateways; let us therefore
first listen to the unbiased comments of disinterested witnesses:
Mr. C D. Porter, of the Kansas
City Refining & Smelting Co., says:
"The Boundary country lies between Christina lake and Midway,
a distance of about sixty miles."
Mr. Alexander Dick, imbued with
Teutonic sentiment: "Mein vater-
landsoll groesser sein," speaks of it
as "150 miles in extent, comprising
the flower-spangled valleys of the
Kettle river and the Okanagan."
Whilst Mr. S. S. Fowler A. B., E.
M., writes: "The term Boundary
has lost its special significance by
reason of the rapid extension of
the area in which valuable miner
als are found, to points far distant
from the nucleus which first gave
the dUtrict its reputation."
Whatever wunt of unanimity
these gentlemen may display a., to
the western terminus of the Boundary country they are all found to
lie of one mind as to its eastern
limit and that is Cascade City.
What other spot can be?
The old Dewdney trail, winding
hill-wise from the east, here first
finds a decent road. The C. P. R.,
after wandering through snow clad
summits and across rock strewn
mountains, at this place reaches
level ground and a safe grade. It
is here also that the road-home
freight from the United States, following a natural route up the Kettle river valley, must enter. It is
here that any U. S. railroad, needing to tap the eastern end of this
great gold-copper country must
cross the Boundary line. It is
just right here, whether one comes
from north, south or east that one
simultaneously strikes the first
postoffice, customs house, railroad
station, hospital or jail in. the new
mineral district north of the Boundary line. Manifestly, also, one
glance at the physical contour of
the country itself, or even at a
good map, must establish the same
truth in incontrovertible fashion
in the mind of any unbiased observer. Nothing but balloons can
upset the contention. It is, therefore, not special pleading or vested
interest, but truth of the ancient
type and justice of the old fashioned sort, which establishes and endows Cascade as the Gateway City,
the threshold town and point of
entry to the Boundary country.
The Royal Seal, manufactured
right here in British Columbia, is
one of the most popular cigars on
the market.

Notice It hereby given that ilxtv dayi after

THE CASCADE RECORD
ON BEAUTIFUL CHRISTINA
Notes of a Steamboat Trip Made to the
Head of the Lake.
VERITABLE GEM OF THE MOUNTAINS
Steamer Myrtle B. la Now Making Regular
Trips���Fishing, Hooting and Camplog���A
Beauty Spot Close at Hand.
By the opinion of those who have
travelled far and wide, Christina
lake���the gem of the mountains���
is one of the prettiest sheets of fresh
water that an angler ever fished in
or along the shores of which a
hunter ever roamed in search of
larger game. This statement may
sound commonplace, but it is universally conceded by every one who
had the pleasure of a trip on its
placid surface from one end to the
other. At any rate, this was the
experience of a party of a dozen or
so, including the Record scribe,
who took such a trip last Sunday
on the staunch little steamer, the
Myrtle B.
Starting from Moody's Landing
at 10 a. m., with Skipper Matheson
at the Wheel, the first stop was
made at the Christina hotel, where
Mine Host Lavalley gave the party
a genial welcome. Five miles further on the Cove or English Point
���as the post-office is officially designated���was reached, and here the
party sat down to delectable dinner at the Lake View hotel, where
Mr. Bell and Mrs. Wickers and
daughter do the honors.
From English Point the course
was made direct for the extreme
northern end of the lake, some 10 or
12 miles away. As the little boat
sped swiftly through the blue waters, a most interesting panorama
of sea and land, of mountain, valley, forrest and stream went by
with almost kalidoscopic rapidity.
The places or pre-emptions of Griffin, Stewart, Rose and Sadler were
passed in quick succession, illustrating the faith that the hardy
pioneer has in the future of this
region. In a short time the upper
end of the lake was reached, and
Charley Sandner welcomed the excursionists to his ranch, where his
fathdr is now visiting him. Mr.
Sandner, by the way, has one of
the neatest and coziest cabins on
the Jake, being as trim as wax
throughout and comfortable also.
He says that fishing is good, especially in Sandner creek, that comes
brawling down the valley at the
rear of the cabin. For an ideal
spot for a pic-nic or for camping,
it would be difficult to find one
more suited than among those towering cedars on Sindner creek. It
will undoubtedly grow more popular for this purpose.
On the return trip the boat was
run close to the eastern shore, and
an examination made.of rude characters emblazoned on the face of
the beetling cliffs, which here rise
abruptly at the water's edge. In
fact, the accommodating skipper of
the craft took us where we would.
As we came down the lake we noted
where the grade of the new railway
line first comes in sight, as it
sweeps out of the McRae creek valley, hundreds of feet above thelake.
The workings of the Victoria, Rainbow, Cannon Ball and other groups
of future dividend payers were also
easily seen; and on the west side of
the lake where a number of properties are being worked.
For a few hours change from the
hum-drum of every day life in the
store, shop, office or even home,
this little trip offers an opportunity
that must be experienced to he appreciated. The expense is not so
very heavy, the steamer is fitted
with a new boiler and will accommodate a score of people. It i�� proposed to run to the head of the
lake every Sunday or oftener, leaving the foot of the lake at 10 a.m.
