CASCADE, B. C,   JANUARY 27, 1900.
No. 12.
The Past Week there Has Been Fighting
Along the Tugela Front.
Every Foot of Qround Most Stubbornly Coo-
tested by Opposing Forces���Our Generals More Cautious and Certain of Their
Eight Boer camps have been
seen west of Ladysmith, and Gen.
Buller with 30,000 men is facing an
army of 50,000 Boers. A dispatch
to the N. Y. Tribune on the 23rd,
says: Buller has challenged good
fortune in playing for high stakes.
Success will make him the greatest
Boldier since Wellington. Failure
will expose him to destructive criticism for attempting with 30,000
men work which requires an army
of 50,000. An official dispatch of
the 24th, reads: General Bnller's
turning movement, of which so
much had heen expected, has come
to a standstill. General Warren
holds the ridges, hut the enemy's
positions are higher. The British
artillery are playing on the Boer
positions, the Boers are replying.
The British infantry is separated
by only 1,400 yards from theenemy
but an approach to the steep slopes
across the bare open would expose
the British to a fatal rifle fire.
General Builer's plans have reached their development. He declines
to send his infantry across this
zone against formidable positions
by daylight and discloses his purpose to assault the Spion Kop
heights during the night. This appears to be the key to the Boer defense. If he takes it and thus
commands the adjacent country, an
important and possibly a decisive
step will be accomplished.
A dispatch to the London Daily
Mail from Pietermaritzhurg, dated
January 23rd, says: Lord Dun-
donald holds the road to Oliver's
Hoek pa-s. The latest arrivals
from Johannesburg say that the
Boer methods are working ruin to
the mines. The Boers pick out the
rich ore, leaving the cost of further
development to the shareholders.
Store? are being robbed wholesale.
The safe deposits vaults under the
stock exchange, have been broken
open and jewelry and pla'e left by
refugees have been extracted.
Grass is growing in the streets and
cattle are grazing in fashionable
thoroughfares. There are still
about 2,000. Uitlanders in the
Transvaal.   A letter received here
from Harrismith relates that three
Britishers were shot in the market
square for refusing to go to the
front when  commanded.
A report has been received that
Private J. W. Jones of the first
British Columbia contingent of the
Canadian force, bud been killed in
actii'ii at Dover's Farm. Jones was
a graduate of West Point, although
of Scottish birth, and was one of
the best known mining men of Vancouver Island, "Black Jones" being
his common title.
Given a Farwell at Laurel Ridge on the Eve
of Their Departure For Trail,
Mr. D. McLeod, purchasing agent
for Mann, Foley Bros. & Larson,
railway contractors, accompanied
by his wife, left on Tuesday afternoon's train for Trail,where they go
to reside for a time. Mr. and Mrs.
McLeod had resided here over a
year, and by their many admirable
traits of character had endeared
themseves to all who enjoyed their
acquaintance. Both took deep interest in every good work in the
community, and their going leaves
a void the town will seriously feel,
and their former wholesome, helpful presence will be made conspicuous by their absence from our
midst. However, it is an ill wind
that blows no one any good, and
what Cascade loseB by their departure Trail will gain by their arrival.
Mr. and Mrs. McLeod were invited
to spend Monday evening at Laurel
liidge, the beautiful home of Mr.
and Mrs. G. K. Stocker,where,also,
many of their friends resident here
gathered to pass an hour or two in
their company, and bid them a farewell, with wishes for their comfort
and happiness wherever their lot
might hereafter be cast. After refreshments had heen served and
just before the friends dispersed for
their homes, Rev. Joseph McCoy,
after reading aloud, and in behalf of
those present and many others,
handed Mr. McLeod the following
written testimonial of appreciation
and esteem in which he and his
wife were held in this community :
To Mr. and Mrs. Donald McLeod-.
Dear Friends���On the eve of your
departure from among us, we cannot allow the occasion to pass without expressing our regret at your
separation from us.
By your earnestness in the pursuit of the highest good for the
community, by your faithfulness in
the discharge of duty, by the heartiness of your co-operation with
your fellow-workers, and hy your
genial and kindly bearing you have
won a place in the affections not
only of the children but of us all,
such as will not soon he refilled.
It is our earnest prayer that you
may have the guidance, support
and comfort of the Divine Father
continued to you; that opportunities for the exercise of your gifts
may be afforded in pleasant and
profitable fields, and that the satisfaction may be yours of seeing your
labors crowned with abundant sue-
Cascade, B. C. Jan. 22,1900.
Mr. McLeod was visibly affected
by this unexpected demonstration,
and responded in a few brief and
appropriate remarks. While they
had, from the nature of his occupation, lived in and left many other
places, ihe social ties and friendships which had been formed here
seemed stronger than those of any
former accasion, and they grieved
at the thought of separation from
a people so mindful of good to all
comers within their hospitable
Incomers Required to Show a Clean Bill of
In the absence of a regularly appointed official, Officer D. J. Darraugh is here temporarily for the
purpose of enforcing the government qua rat tine regulations in regard to the prevalence of small pox
across the line. The official ukase iu
the first place absolutely prohibits
reservation Indians from crossing
the international boundary line into the province from the American
side. All other persons coming
from either western Idaho or eastern Washington and desiring to
cross the line into this province
must satisfy the quarantine officers
that they have not recently been
exposed to or passed near any person or community where the disease
is present; if they have, must show
by certificate that they subBequent-
ly submitted to vaccination and
All U. S. mails destined for the
British side must, before entering,
be thoroughly fumigated.
It is the determination of the authorities, if possible, to prevent the
spread of the contagion into this
Midway Advance: It is proposed to urge Provincial Government
to construct a wagon road to connect Princeton, in the Similkameen,
with Peachland, on Okanogan lake.
It is claimed that this would bring
the agricultural and mining interests of the districts concerned into
touch, to their mutual benefit.
The first carload of freight other
than construction material to reach
Midway by rail was brought in by
the construction train last Friday.
It was loaded with new machinery
and plant for Lequime & Powers'
sawmill and sash and door factory.
General Warren's Troops Occupy the
Coveted HilL
The Taking of Spion Cop Considered a Per*
manent Advance���Britons Enthusiastic���
Now It's On to Ladysmith.
General Builer's phrase, 'the
men are splendid," thrills England
with pride and confidence. His
taking and holding Spion Kop is
considered a permanent advance.
Sir CharleB Warren's opinion that
miles of the adjacent Boer trenches
are untenable, is accepted by most
expert observers as obviously true,
because of the height of the
position, although some point
out that it may lack an adequate
gun platform to successfully resist artillery fire on the two extended sides. It is not likely that General Warren will let go of anything
he holds, and news of further fighting is calmly awaited, says the London dispatch. The military authorities recognize, of course, that
in the twelve or fifteen miles between Spion Kop and Ladysmith
there are continuous defensive positions and ruggid hills and ravines
which far outrange Spion Kop, but
they are sure that the troops who
have turned the Boers out of difficult places can do it again.
Putting  in a  Shingle Mill at the Head of
Christina Lake.
Chas. Sandner and Olo Join.son
have undertaken an enterprise of
considerable proportion. They are
putting a shingle mill at the head
of Christina Lake. It will be operated by steam, and have a capacity of 45,000 shingles per day.
The product of the mill will be
rafted down the lake during high
water season, nod floated down
Christina creek to Cascade, where
they will be placed on the local
market as the demand may be,
and tbe balance shipped by rail in
any direction that orders mny come
from. They have also provided
themselves with a steam launch,
with which to navigate the lake.
We see no reason why there
should not be a good demand for
their entire output.
C. J. Eckstorrn, previous to the
fire a hotelkeeper of Cascade, was
here this week having just returned
from the east. THE   CASCADE  RECORD

PAYl   PAY!!   PAY!!!
Who Is the Real "Absent-Minded  Beggar,"
Tommy Atkins, Or His Taskmaster?
Dear Sir:
To-day, January 27th, is an anniversary of the birth of the great
European War-Lord, His Imperial
HighneBB the Emperor of Germany
and King of Prussia; yesterday,
that of the death of General Gordon at Khartoum, and to-morrow
that of the capitulation of Paris to
the Prussian troops, in 1871. The
times are redolent of things martial, and any one of the events above
recorded might in itself have afforded an admirable text for lessons to the military authorities of
Great Britain. But will those "'absent-minded beggars" ever profit
by experience ?
To the date of this writing, with
good news hourly expected, disaster
after disaster, many quite unnecessary, has confronted the Imperial
forces in South Africa, and at the
present moment the "powers that
be" are signalizing their characteristic unfitness by accepting for ser-
vicd the butchers, bakers and candlestick makers, together with the
flery cab-horses which go to compose the yeomanry regiments of
Great Britain, and are refusing help
from some of the toughest, best
fighting and scouting material in
the world���the hardy mountaineers
of British Columbia.
Pay ! Pay ! ! Pay 1 1 ! sings
Tommy Atkins' patron poet, the
inimitable Kipling,and the natural
reply of every long-suffering Britisher outside army circles is, "We
have been paying, we are paying,
and we will pay, but we want value
for it.
We have been paying and we are
paying: The Sectretary of State
for War, the Most Hon. The Marquis of Lansdowne, ��5000 per annum ; Field-Marshal Viscount Wol
seley, K. P., G. C. B., ��4,500 per
annum; Director General of the Ordnance Factory, Sir William
Anderson, K. C. B., C. B., D. C. L.,
��2500; Inspector General of Fortifications, Lieut. Gen. Sir R. Harrison, K. C. B., C. M. G., ��2100; Inspector General of Ordnance (when
appointed at all), ��2100; not forgetting the Chaplain General,��1000
and General Mismanagement a few
From the crime of Khartoum to
that piece of matchless idiocy more
recently achieved by a certain army
officer who rejected a whole batch
of mules for being ire foal, every
possible piece of folly has been
committed up and down the gamut
of unnecessary blunders until every
nation of Europe, except possibly
Britain herself, has jeered or stood
aghast. And the Britisher has
been paying every time.
Either the government and the
war office knew that the Transvaal
was for years arming heavily or
they did not know. If they did
they committed the crime of tolerat
ing it, if they did not they erred
still more grievously in being
shamefully ignorant of things bearing upon their offices. But still the
Britisher has paid and is paying;
just as he paid for the odd sized
boots, the mouldy oats and ice
creams and trencherless trenches of
the Crimea. He is pitying for the
lack of knowledge or culpable un-
preparedness of the present conservative government and he is paying also for the ever weak liberal
Gladstone who, having put his
hand to the plough and found an
obstacle thereto in the shape of one
certain Majula Hill turned back,
created a British Waterloo, secured
peace with dishonor and smoothed
the way for the greed, the slavery,
the monopoly, the oligarchy, the
distress, dinorder,commercial upset
and legal murder that ensues in the
Transvaal to-day.
And for yet awhile longer, it
must be, "pay, pay, pay," until the
indomitable pluck of the units of
the British army, supported by the
combination of Bull, Buller and
bullets works :out the inevitable
end, and then that army and the
great patient, long-suffering public
which has been doing the "pay,
pay-paying!! will demand an account of the stewardship of the
taskmasters, the "real absent-
minded beggars." And it may be
safely predicted that once through
its present trouble, its eyes opened,
its needs emphasised, its weaknesses unmasked, its trusted leaders
exposed, the great somnolent, trustful and stiff-necked Rip Van
Winkle among nations, will rise
Phoenix-like from its own war fires,
the holocaust of its own dishonor,
and proclaim itself ready and able
to face the world.
It matters little whether the cost
is to be found in the twopenny income tax of Disraeli or the eight-
times greater one of Palmeston,
or even more still, it will face the
situation and do all the paying that
is necessary, and this time it will
demand from certain absent-minded
and over-paid beggars adequate return, and take good care that it
gets it.
And even yet out of evil may
come forth good, for if latter-day
military misfortunes of the mother
country rally round her, her colonial children, if they teach the
average young Britisher that there
is more on earth than foot-balls to
kick and ballet girls to kiss; his
elders that peace and profits are
not disassociated with powder and
preparation, and the chosen of the
people that place and power will
not protect them from tho price of
perfidy, then may the closing year
of the nineteenth century be looked
upon as the brightest of the age,
forerunner of the dawn of reason
and the Renaissance of the British
empire. Stanley Mayall.
Let not him who puts on his
armour boast as he who lakes it off.

Cascade is the Gateway City.
Cascade has no bonded indebtedness, nor an expensive municipal
government to support.
The second Canadian contingent
is now on the ocean voyaging to
South Africa.
Cascade has assurances of the
largest pay roll in proportion to
its population for the coming year
of any town in the Boundary.
The Kamloops Standard editor
has shown his sin of irreverence of
the Lieut.-Gov. was not his personal fault, and he has been forgiven
by the offended party.
The principal business of the opposition is to harrass the government, and its sole aim is to overthrow it.   It !b small business.
Fifteen days of the time of the
provincial legislature was occupied
by the action of Hon. Jos. Martin
and the Opposition, in determining
whether any government existed.
In short, that amount of time was
wasted in political sparring.
Jos. Martin, M. P. P., who deserted his constituency, is being
subjected to corrective methods not
always dignified, but of a nature
that will deter other M. P. P's from
taking a like course to that taken
by Mr. Martin. He was pained
and surprised, he said, to learn that
his going over to the opposition had
been condemned in Nanaimo, and
upon going down there to tell them
how it happened, he barely escaped
being mobbed. Some who know
Mr. Martin personally, say he is
a political monte-bank.
Gone To Secure More Help.
Work on the big dam is moving
along favorably. On account of
high water, the laying of the lower
planks has been delayed for a month
or so. Now, however, the water has
receded sufficiently to admit the
work being done, and yesterday
Mr. W. 0. Simmons, foreman in
charge on the dam, went to Grand
Forks to secure sufficient help to do
the planking quickly, before another raise in the river interfered.
Mrs. Julius Black is reported
seriously ill.
B. F. Vancleve has gone on a
visit to Montana.
C. H. Thomas, of the Hotel Cascade, went to Grand Forks yesterday.
V. Monnier, the wholesale liquor
merchant, returned from a trip to
Spokane Wednesday.
B. W. Matthews, manager of R.
G. Dunn's Mercantile agency at
Nelson, was in town yesterday.
John R. Reavis has retired from
the Grand Forks Miner, and will
hereafter devote his attention to
the Republic daily.
Miss Mary Gilles of Greenwood,
and W. J. Simpson, proprietor of
the Greenwood house of that city,
were married on Tuesday last, Rev.
Father Cote, officiating.
J. A. Bertois, proprietor of the B.
C. livery stable, has secured the
contract to transport the local mail
sacks between the postoffice and
railway depot, and receives from
the government therefor $1.00 per
Elmer D. Hall, formerly of The
Record staff, has recovered almost
entirely from the aitack of typhoid
fever which had laid him up for
nearly four months. He was in
town Wednesday, on his way to
Phoenix, being interested in the
Pioneer. He weighs more now
than ever before, but is still a little
Mr. Thos. Price, a genial old soul
of Sutherland Siding, has been in
town this week. We understand
he had a bid in on the rock work
for the tunnel for the Cascade Water Power and Light Co., and was
here keeping an eye on results.
Mr. Price is well known throughout the northwest and has carried
to successful issue many important
railway and other similar contracts, in his time. He is chuck
full of tales of experiences incidental to his pioneer life and entertains sitting-room audiences for
hours with narrations relative to
the thrilling haps and mishaps of
those days.
Contract! Not Yet Awarded.
Eight or ten tenders were received for the rock work on the big
tunnel and cut for the Cascade
Water Power and Light Co., and
are now being held under advisement. The 400-foot tunnel and
the removal of 20,000 cubic yards
principally of rock constitute an
undertaking of magnitude and it is
estimated will involve the expenditure of from $40,000 to $50,000.
We understand the contract will
not be awarded till M >nday or
Englishmen, resident of Chicago,
have contributed $51,000 to the
Canadian patriotic fund.
Mr. and Mn. W. Anderson will Occupy Tbelr
New Residence First of Next Montb,
Mr. W. Anderson, engineer in
charge here of the construction
work of the Cascade Water Power
and Light company, will move hit-
family into their new residence
about the first of February. Without doubt this structure is the most
capacious and substantially finished dwelling in town. The material used in the inside finishing work
is all of cedar imported from the
Sound. It is a two-story, nine-
room house, with large hallways,
pantry, bathroom, etc. The design
for the building was prepared by
Mr. Anderson himself, and the
plans have been faithfully executed
by Contracter I). D. Ferguson, who
also erected the new church and
school buildings, besides many
other structures. Mr. Aanderson's
new home is a credit to the town,
himself and the builder.
Ordination and Induction Services.
(Fernie Free Press.)
Quite an interesting and impressive ceremony was witnessed by a
large congregation in Knox Presbyterian church on the evening of the
16th inst. This was the ordination
of the Rev. D. L. Gordon, B. A.,
and his induction into the pastorate
charge of this congregation. Mr.
Gordon is a graduate of Queen's
University, Kingston, in arts, and
he completed his theological training in Manitoba college during the
past summer. He occupied the
pulpit here last November, and
made such a favorable impression
that as a result a unanimous call
was extended to him. This call
was sustained in Presbytery, which,
having taken the necessary steps,
met here on the above mentioned
evening to formerly ordain and induct the new pastor.    The Rev.
Frew, of Nelson, preached^a forcible
Cascade has no bonded indebtedness nor an ex|>ens<ive municipal
government to support.

camp has $80 ore at a depth of 35
feet, and as the winze goes down
the grade of the ore goes up.
It appears from our Kaslo exchange, the Kootenaian, that the
Payne mine has imported some 80
Swedes and Poles from the iron
mines of Minnesota and put them
to work.
The Paradise group in Windermere camp i�� one of the triost promising in the district; it is located on
Spring creek. From the surface it
showed ore of a shipping grade, and
was readily bonded for $100,000,
and subsequently for $150,000 to
the Golden (B C.) Syndicate of
London, England. The present
workings show sand carbonates and
galena, which will average $80 to
the ton, although much higher assays have been made. It ie a remarkable property, and will he systematically developed   his winter.
The lead furnace was blown in at
Trail lust week, which gave em-
Y)ow under development. Look at the immense
���/'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 8^ 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 News says: The smelter each
week takes on a livelier and busier
aspect. Every part of the numerous buildings are now alive with
men, and it is a veritable hive of
industry. The opening up of this
furnace is one of the first fruits of
the Canadian governments abolition
of duty on lead coming back here
to be smelted; and is an important
epoch in what is destined to be a
great Canadian industry. The Trail
lead furnace jb not only the largest
in Canada but is as large as any iiv
the United States.
Slocan mining interests are not
wholly at a standstill. The Rambler-Cariboo shipped two carloads
of ore last week. The Queen Bess
shipped 62 tons of ore the first week
in January. The ledge in the Frisco,
on Silver mountain, has been cut.
A gasolene engine is in use on the
Madison. The Heather Bell is now
working two shifts. A 700-foot
drift will be run in the Silver ledge.
Seven men are employed. George
Clark has been made boss of the
Rambler. A winze is being sunk
on the ore chute. The drift will be
continued 250 feet along the ore
vein. Crouse & Williams have completed their 700-foot drift contract
on the Sovereign. The Black Prince
and Arlington are rawhiding ore to
a point of railway shipment.
The Winnipeg mine in Wellington camp has been listed as a shipper.
There is no abatement of the
cheering reports from all the mines
in the Boundary country and tbe
Republic district.

One night last week one of the
cooks at the Y. M. C. A. boarding
house suddenly and unceremoious-
ly took his departure, lit out, as it
were, and has not up to this writing returned to the yob that he
youmped. At the time of his disappearance he was employed in the
pastry department. It is said he
became alarmed at the approach of
some visitors, mistaking them for
burglars. He was attired in professional garb and was in the act of
placing a pie in the oven when the
tapping at the door sounded in bis
ear. He fled precipitately through a
rear exit and sped like a deer down
the gulch. One party claims to
have seen him in his flight, and declares that he was hatless, in his
stocking-feet, and was besmeared
with fiVur and dough. He was an
estimable young man, and his
former associates in the Y. M. C.
A. deplore the unfortunate circumstance which deprives them of his
genial companionship.
