No. 50.
B. C Syndicate Opening on North Fork
of Kettle River.
New Store ii Located 10 Miles Above Orand
Forks, and ii Surrounded by Many Promising Mines.
The British Columbia Mercantile
and Mining Syndicate, Ltd., of this
town, has, we learn, just taken
another important step in the direction of increased trade, having
bought out the building, stock, land
and good will of the firm of Arthur
S. Williamson & Co., at Eagle City,
on the North Fork of the Kettle
river. The Syndicate already has
several carloads of goods en route
for distribution.
From what we know of this firm
the miners and prospectors in the
locality will have every reason to
be thankful for its advent. At the
same time we can congratulate the
Syndicate on its most excellent
choice of a location for a branch,
right among so many undoubtedly
excellent-mining properties. In
response to a rumor that the Syndicate would leave Cascade, the
manager of the Record saw Mr.
Mayall, one of the local managers,
und he replied:
" Nothing of the kind ; ours was
the fifth building up in Cascade.
There have been one hundred and
fifty built since, and we have done
an exceptionally good business from
the start. We are here to stay.
Cascade will remain our headquarters and be a central point
from which to work our Gladstone,
Christina Lake and Eagle City
branches. We shall, however,
probably find it convenient to keep
bank accounts in Grand Forks, and
shall undoubtedly advertise freely
there as well as here,
" What made us select Eagle City
in particular ? Ten reasons���ten
good ones, too���which I don't intend   mentioning and   an  old
" What has the bucket to do with
it ? It was hanging outside a
i��unk house wall and cost the mine
owners six bits ; we sell the same
kind for four, and intend giving the
North Fork property owners $15,000
worth of stock to buy from at the
name rates."
The Record man asked Mr. May-
all if it were not true that the Syndicate was shortly to be considerably developed.
" Exactly; in the spring or
summer of next year it is likely
that our firm will have $250,000
for use in the mercantile and mining business in this section of British Columbia. Whether we shall
employ that sum in competition
with existing commercial houses or
in endeavors to amalgamate vari
ous firms of good repute,, will rest
with others.
" There are about fifteen mem
bers of the Syndicate. The directors
consist of Mr. Lynch, a retired
manufacturer of great wealth and
experience; Mr. Upton, chairman
of directors of the great London
firm of Charles Baker & Co.; Mr.
Joseph Asprey, a well-known London solicitor, and Mr. Edgar P.
Rathbone, late mining inspector
for the Transvaal and probably
one of the most experienced and
reliable mining experts living. The
local managers consist of Mr. Thos.
F. Carden, formerly of Johannesburg, assayer, who was for many
years acting in a similar capacity
for the Bank of Africa ; Mr. Paul
Rochussen and Frank Asprey, who
have conducted mercantile businesses at Melbourne, Australia, and
London, England, and myself.
" Where do I come from ? Everywhere, mostly, but started in Lancashire, England, and was between
whiles ten years partner in the
firm of Mayall Bros., merchants
and brokers, Liverpool, where I
still have business interests, and of
the firm of John Mayall, Ltd., Moss-
ley, the dreariest, dirtiest, dampest town in the universe, where we
employ 3,000 operatives and enjoy
the very doubtful privilege of owning the largest cotton spinning
plant in the world, and some times
(when trade is good) make almost
two and a half per cent, profit.
" Luckily the margin iB wider in
British Columbia, and our Syndicate considers itself well qualified,
either financially, constitutionally
or commercially, to secure for itself
and shareholders most satisfactory
" We shall probably have the
store fully stocked in a few days
and open under the management
of Charles Palmer and James Ellis
by the 1st of November."
Crushed by His Own Wagon.
John C. M. Davis, a freighter,
hauling lumber to Phoenix, was
run over and killed by his own
team near Phoenix, last Friday
week. D. J. Matheson had the remains removed to Phoenix and
prepared for burial. When found
the body was lying face upwards
with one of the wheels of the wagon,
loaded with 1500 feet of green
lumber, lying on his chest. Davis
was 65 years of age, and has a
daughter at school in Washington.
Mr. Davis was well known in
Cascade, having made his home
here last winter. He was better
known as " Seven-up Davis."
Thanksgiving Social.
Thursday evening a Thanksgiving social was held at the residence
of Donald McLeod on Third avenue.
It was the occasion of the regular
meeting of the Ladies' Aid Society
and a general invitation brought
out a goodly delegation of both
genders. Games and social intercourse were indulged in until a late
hour and a very pleasant evening
was enjoyed by all. The treasury
was also enriched hy the sum of $9.
The Boundary Creek Telephone
Co. is putting in an exchunge at
Midway. It is already operating
at Phoenix and Greenwood.
Average Assays Return Values of $i
in Gold.
Burnt Basin Properties Are Looking Well
Under Steady Development ������ New Trails
Make Claims More Accessible.
The strike made several days ago
on the mother lode in Burnt Basin,
is proving to be a moat important
one. Mr. Forrest, of Gladstone,
came down from that town yesterday and says that everyone in that
section is feeling good over recent
developments, and the returns from
the assays on the Mother Lode
strike have made their faith even
The ore body struck in the drift
of the Mother Lode is over nine
feet wide. Careful average assays
give returns of $56 in gold. Much
higher assays have been secured
from picked specimens, as high, in
fact as $1,000, but the above is a
fair average. Over 100 feet of work
has been done on the claim. At
first a shaft was sunk some30 feet;
then from this an incline was put
down perhaps 50 feet further, when
drifting to catch the ledge was
started. This drift reached the
rich ore in about 40 <��r 501eet. R.
H. H. Alexander, the manager, as
well as others interested, are highly
elated at the present outlook.
There is no let-up in the development that has heen carried on all
summer on a number of promising
properties around Gladstone. The
John Bull tunnel gets deeper each
week and now is in about 135 feet.
It is expected that the ledge will be
struck in the course of a couple of
weeks. The No. 3 tunnel on the
Mystery is also progressing favorably, and there is every indication
that the ore body will he reached
in these workings as well as the
others. Wherever systematic work
has been done, the results have
been exceedingly satisfactory.
Mr. Forrest has a force of men at
work on the new trail being built
into the Basin from Gladstone, Jim
Cameron being in charge of the
work. It is being constructed on a
wagon road grade, and will he of
great utility to those operating in
the Burnt Basin.
The government trail up Sutherland creek has been completed by
Mr. Forrest also. It is nearly four
miles long and runs on easy grades
to the Elmore and other promising
claims at the head of Baker and
Sutherland creeks. It will greatly
assist in the development of Shamrock mountain properties.'
J. W. Bengough, the famous lecturer and cartoonist, will give one
of his splendid entertainments in
Cascade on Wednesday evening,
November 8th. Everybody should
see and hear him, and heartily enjoy themselves.
Rev. Jas. McCoy will visit tho
tunnel camps next week.
Last Thursday being Dominion
Thanksgiving day was celebrated
in Cascade by the closing of all the
banks, public offices and jobbing
Timothy Foley, Peter Larson and
J. W. Stewart, members of the firm
of Mann, Foley Bros. & Larson,
went to Rossland Thursday, and
thence to Spokane.
Mrs. B. W. Wilcox, of Spokane,
arrived in Cascade this week and
will make her home here. Mr.
Wilcox is connected with the Cascade Water, Power & Light Co.
A special meeting of the Board
of License Commissioners for
Boundary Creek District, will be
held to-day at Eholt, where a score
of applications will be passed upon.
Distinguished Party Went Over the New
Prom West Robson to Orand Forks Ruaalag
Time Was Three Hours and Tea Mlautea
������President Shaughueuy Next
A distinguished party went over
the new Boundary railway in a
special train last Wednesday, goii.g
as far as Greenwood and returning
the next day. It consisted of Col-
lingwood Shreiber, assistant minis*
ter of railways, Chief Engineer Tye,
Assistant Freight Agent Peters, W.
H. Aldridge, manager of the Trail
smelter, Timothy Foley, Peter Larson and J. W. Stewart, of the firm
of Mann, Foley Bros. & Larson,
Dick Porter and Auditor Kimball.
It was the first trip of several of
these gentlemen on the new line,
and they were all pleased with the
splendid condition of the road bed
and bridges. The actual running
time from West Robson to Grand
Forks was three hours and ten
minutes, a distance of 71 miles. It
took only 28 minutes to go over
the switchback at the Bull Dog
tunnel. The return trip, 13 miles,
from Grand Forks to Cascade, was
made in 28 minutes. This shows
that good time can readily be made
when the C. P. R. gets ready to
make it.
To a Record representative Mr.
Tye stated that he expected to in*
augurate a daily service as soon as
President Shaughnessy went over
the road, which would hesometime
next week probably. He also
stated that it was not the intention
to operate the road for passenger
traffic to Greenwood until it could
be done also to Midway, as it would
require two inspections by government officials, when in a few days
one would answer.
There has been much trouble to
secure sufficient steel to finish
tracklaying to Midway, hut Jack
Stewart says enough for this purpose is now coming forward. None
is yet in sight, however, for the
branches. THE   CASCADE   RECORD

country can be formed from the
fact that the customs collections at
the port of Grand Forks during
September exceeded $10,000.
John Lingholm recently made a
visit to the Bergip, one of his properties on St. Thomas mountain,

D. C. Jackling, a famous metallurgist from Mercur, Utah, is now
at Republic to make a report upon
the possibilities of reducing the ore
in the great Republic mine. He

ho,tel at Republic.
A board of trade was organized
last week at Columbia, when the

T. Wright; treasurer, W. Wastell.
Executive committee, Messrs. Anderson, Simard, Morrison and
The Kittie   W.,  adjoining  the
Pathfinder mine, north fork of
Kettle river, lookB so favorable as
a result of the recent work in opening up tbe ledge by a series of open
cuts, that it has been decided !>y the
management to keep a force of men
at work all winter. A permanent
working shaft will be sunk to the
75-foot level, when cross-cutting
will be commenced.
First Boundary Shipment.
F. M. McLeod, of Grand Forks,
who bonded the Yankee Girl and
Yankee Boy on Hardy mountain
six weeks ago, shipped a carload of
20 tons of ore to the Trail smelter
last Monday. This formed the
first shipment of ore by rail from
the Boundary country, and made
the event somewhat historic. The
returns are expected to exceed $100
per ton in gold and silver. A shaft
has been sunk 100 feet. It is connected with a tunnel 100 feet long.
Near the face of the tunnel a crosscut has been driven 100 feet, and in
it the ore is from 12 to 27 inches
wide. The latest assay gave 29
ounces gold and 12 ounces silver
per ton.  	
New Stage Coach Running.
Last week Messrs. Brockman &
Lay, of the Bossburg and Grand
Forks stage line, put on a new 14-
passenger stage that is certainly a
beauty. These men, who are popular with the travelling public,
have long been in the staging business and are now doing a big
business, carrying full loads each

When the building of the Canadian Pacific railway was first proposed, the project was bitterly opposed by many Canadians who
looked upon the scheme as a piece
of folly. These Canadians characterized British Columbia as "a sea
of mountains," and declared emphatically that the railway could
never be built through this province, and that, even if it could be
built, it would never pay. These
prophets have been conclusively
proved to be false prophets. The
railway has been built, and it pays
Not only has the C. P. R. company built a line extending from
the Atlantic to the Pacific, but it is
probable that within a few years
they will have a second line extending from Fort William in Ontario to Vancouver. It is well
known that it is their intention to
double the track between Fort
William and Winnipeg. They already possess a line extending
from Winnipeg to Estevan, in As-
siniboia, and the necessities of settlers will soon require the extension of this line to Lethbridge.
The Crow's Nest Pass road, and the
Columbia & Western now extend
from Lethbridge to Midway. The
Columbia & Western will undoubtedly be extended soon through
Penticton and the Similkameen
valley, not only to Hope on the
Faser river, but beyond that point
along the south-bank of the Fraser
to New Westminster and Vancouver. It can be seen, therefore, that
the Canadian Pacific company will
soon have two lines extending from
Lake Superior to the Pacific ocean,
and, as the canals in Eastern Canada are being enlarged so as to
allow vessels from the ocean to
come to Fort William, there will
be during the season of navigation
practically two C. P. R. lines extending from the Atlantic to the
It is probable, moreover, that a
third line will be built within a
very short time extending from the
Atlantic to the Pacific. This line
will not deprive the C. P. R. ef
traffic to any serious extent. It
was thought a few yeare ago that
the habitable and useful part of
Canada was too narrow to allow
even one transcontinental railway
a chance   of   paying.   It  is   now
well known that it is wide enough
to supply traffic for two or three
transcontinental lines.
This third line is being .built-in
pieces. The Rainy river railway
and the Manitoba & Southeastern
will together extend from Port
Arthur on Lake Superior to Winnipeg. This part of the line will
pass through a very rich agricultural and mining region. The line
will extend from Winnipeg to
Prince Albert, passing over the
Portage Plains, and through the
Dauphin, Swan river, and Carrot
river districts. From Prince Albert it will pass westward through
the Battleford district to Edmonton. The land is of great value for
grain growing and grazing pur-
posess all the way from Winnipeg
to Edmonton and, in fact, to the
Rocky mountains. Noother transcontinental line in America will
equal it in this respect.
From Edmonton the line will
pass through the Yellow Head
Pass into the rich mining region of
Cariboo. At Tete Jaune Cache
there are excellent placer mines,
and at Barkerville and other parts
of Cariboo there are rich gold
It is probable that the line, when
it reaches Quesnelle on the Fraser
river, will proceed to the ocean in
two directions, one line passing
northwest to Port Simpson, which
has an excellent harbor, and the
other passing southwest through
the Chilcotin district and across
Seymou* Narrows to Vancouver
Island, whence it will proceed
southward to Victoria, making use
of the E. & N. road, and passing
through the rich coal mining districts of Vancouver Island. The
Chilcotin district is one of the best
regions in British Columbia.
It is proposed also to build a
branch from the Saskatchewan
River to Fort Churchill on Hudson Bay, which will give a short
line from Victoria and Port Simpson to that inlet of the Atlantic.
It is not probable, however, that
Port Arthur will be the permanent
eastern terminus. The gap will
probably soon be filled up between
that town and the Ottawa and
Parry Sound Railway, which will
soon extend in a comparatively
straight line from Parry Sound to
Quebec. The St. Lawrence is to
he bridged immediately at Quebec,
and connection will then be had at
Levis with the Intercolonial
Rail way,extending to St. John and
Halifax. There will then be a
direct line from Halifax to Esquimau, and it will be possible to pass
from one place to the other without
leaving the cars.

The editor of the Record returned
Tuesday from a visit to the Spokane exposition, and he haB no hesitation in saying that, when the increased price of admission and had
weather are taken into consideration, it was a decided success.
Doubtless the best and most interesting feature of the whole show
was the mineral exhibit which was
a great revelation to thousands of
our almost incalculable mineral
possibilities. British Columbia
cunips were well represented with
ore specimens, and there can be no
doubt in the mind of any reasonable man that good will flow from
this tine display. It wits a pity
tbat Christina lake camps were not
Some of the finest music ever
made was heard at the exposition.
It was furnished by the Grand
Army Band, of Canton, Ohio, President McKinley's hometown. The
organization consists of 44 men,
every one an artist on the instrument he played. It was a genuine
treat to hear such an aggregation
of talent. Manager Bolster is to
be congratulated on the successful
outcome of the exposition. It will
likely be made a permanent thing
The Grand Forks Daily Gazette
made its first bow to an expectant
and waiting public last Monday,
and its neat make-up and general
newsy appearance was an agreeable
surprise to the residents of tbe
Forks. Mr. Smith is getting out a
good paper, and if he keeps it up to
its present high standard,heshould
make it a success. It already has
a generous support, showing that
the Forkers know a good thing
when they see it. The paper is a
six-column folio and contains the
latest press dispatches.
Hewitt Bostock, M. P., went
through the Boundary early in the
week and it is understood ho was
advised about our indifferent postal
facilities. If he wishes still more
evidence, the Record has a fresh
batch with all documents to prove
the case, that will be submitted
should he so desire. One reform
that would assuridly give better
service would be the giving of adequate compensation to post office
employees. This is not like Ontario where a man can live like a
lord on $40 or $50 a month, and
Mr. Bostock and Mr. Mulock should
certainly be aware of the fact by
this time.
This week a party passed through
Cascade, boiyul for the upper
Boundary, that had just gone
through the ordeal of tackling the
Buffalo Hump country, in Idaho,
that has had so much newspaper
booming in recent months. To say
that they were bitterly disappointed
with what they found in the Buffalo
Hump would be putting it very
mildly. The leader of the party
asserted that it was the most dreary,
desolate, worthless section it had
ever been his misfortune to visit.
It was overrated to a degree, and
there were hundreds���yes, thousands���there who rued the day they
first, heard of Buffalo Hump." The
boom, it was asserted, was the result of tbe work of naid agents and
was not justified by the existing
This iB not a pleasing picture,
but it is given just as it was
told. It appeared to have been related in good faith and as the truth.
There are probably some good
properties in the Hump district,
but they are evidently a scarce article as yet.

Columbia Company Now Getting Into Oood
Shape Throughout.
John B. Donald, manager of the
Columbia Telepnone Co., was in
town Thursday looking after the
business of his company. This
year that concern has spent over
$50,000 in new lines and exchanges
in this part of British Columbia
The service now runs from the
boundary line to Camp McKinney,
via Cascade, Grand Forks, Greenwood and Midway, and is 75 miles
long, being a metallic copper circuit the entire distance. It has
exchanges in Rossland, Grand
Forks and Columbia, and will
shortly put in exchanges at Phoenix
and Greenwood.
Mr. Donald says that notwithstanding thecompetition of another
telephone company and two telegraph companies, they are doin ? it
good business and are veey well
satisfied with the outlook. It is
expected that the line will be extended to Nelson next year and
also out west, to and beyond Penticton. The American connection
of the Columbia is the Spokane and

George C. Hodge, the district
manager of the Nelson & Vernon
Telephone Co., is again in the

the Record man that his people
have recently made a substantial
reduction in the rates for local
'phones. In Greenwood, Grand
Forks ard Rossland the rates have
come down from $5 to $2 for business houses and to $2 for residences.

Our member in parliament, Hewitt Bostock, accompanied by Hon.
Sidney Fisher, minister of agriculture, have been visiting various
points in the former's constituency.
Last week they were in Kootenay

and addresssing the voters of various Boundary towns, explaining
the policy of the government from
their standpoint.
They came over from Rossland
on Monday's train, and on Tuesday
held a meeting at Grand Forks.
Both gentlemen were astonished at
the growth and prosperity of the
Boundary as far as they had seen
it, and promised to keep its needs
in mind. Their particular attention was called to the inadequate
postal facilities.

Cascades'* Power Nearly Equal to that of
Spokane���Now Controlled by a Strong
English Syndicate.
The recent transfer of the water
power tit Cascade to the rich and
powerful English syndicate, the
London and B.C.Gold Fields,Ltd.,
reminds us of some of the immense
expenditures on other water powers
and the benefits derived therefrom.
Probably the largest power recently
developed is at Niagara where 120,-
000 horsepower is developed at an
expense of. $4,000,000.
The power on the St. Louis near
Duluth, Minn., was sold by Jay
Cook for $1,000,000 and at a later
date was repurchased by him at an
advanced price.
For the preservation of the falls
at Minneapolis, which, owing to
the soft nature of the rock were
rapidly wearing away, the U. S
Government appropriated $1,000,-
At R��ck Island 4,000 h.-p. is
developed at a cost of over $1,000,-
000. The controlling interest in
this power is owned by the U. S.
Government. In 1884 Jas. J. Hill,
president of the Great Northern
R. R., paid $800,000 for a portion
of the Great Falls of the Missouri
in Montana, about which has grown
a city of 15,000 or 20,000 population.
The as yet undeveloped Shoshone
Falls in Idaho were purchased by
Omaha parties for $50,000.
While statistics regarding Spokane's water power are not available,
figures well up in the millions
would be required to represent the
value of the present improvements.
Recent discoveries in economically transmitting and adapting
power render these water powers
much more valuable than formerly.
Cheap transportation places inland
cities on a more equal footing with
coast cities. Cheap power makes
possible the profitable establishing
of many industries which could not
otherwise exist.
For the benefits accruing from
these powers the towns or cities
adjoining, one need but observe the
the results in each of the above
mentioned instances. It is the
almost invariable rule that large
cities spring up about developed
powers. This fact is particularly
marked in the case of Minneapolis,
where the rival city of St. Paul was
already established, a large, prosperous financial and commercial
centre ; also at Spokane, where, in
spite of railroad opposition, political
influence and outside pressure, it
steadily but surely pressed forward
to become the first and leading inland city of the coast states.
Cascade has a water power nearly
equal in magnitude to that of
Spokane. Considering the advantageous location of Ca��cade in other
ways, ita close proximity to the
mines, its attractiveness as a summer resort, its beautiful and central location, with its immense now
to be developed water power, there
is a very reasonable assurance that
Cascade will take the leading position nature has intended for it.
