Cornelius J. Alvord, jr., the em
bezzling note teller of the First
National bank, New York, was ar
rested in Boston Tuesday, and
taken to a New York prison. Alvord took his arrest quietly. He
arrived in Boston last week and
went to the Hotel Touraine, but did
not register, On Wednesday he
engaged a back room on the second
door of a lodging house on Hunt
ington avenue near west Newton
street, where he went under the
name of Mr. Smith of New York.
Alvord passed a restful night in a
cell in the police headquarters.
This morning he was allowed the
privilege of the corridor and he sat
out in his shirt sleeves reading the
morning papers and smoking.
The Tables Turned on the C. P. R.
It in alleged by the secret service
agents of the Canadian Paoiffc rail
road.that a regularly organized-
ring has existed in (he mining Regions some time past whereby,, the
Canadian Pacific has been defraud
ed of thousands of eroll&fs by fraudulent tickets, originally purchased,
undated at the offices of the company, to be taken up by the conductors in the scheme of fraud and
returned to the special agent of this
trainmen's syndicate and by the
special agents to be sold over and
over again. It is understood that
in the majority of cases hotel runners acted as go-betweens.
THE TUNNEL CONTRACT COMPLETED.
Contractor Olson Finishes His Encasement
With Cascade Water Power Company.
Thursday, Mr. Olaf Olson finished his contract work on the 400-
foot tunnel, which extends from'
the dam under the C. P. R. railway track and connects with the
open flumeway which runs 2000
feet to near the powerhouse site.
This was a difficult and tedious job,
but Mr. Olson carried the great
work through satisfactorily to the
Water Power company. Thursday
his tunnel men were paid off and
discharged. To-day Mr. Olson
vacated the Black hotel and turned
it over to its owner, Mr. Julius
Black. Mr. Olson expects to return to his home near Seattle, where
he has a large and profitable farm.
As near as can be learned, it is
the intention of the Water Power
company to complete the work on
the dam and also to lay the foundation for tbe powerhouse before the
coming of high water again. The
unfinished portion of the Quinlivan
contract will also be carried to a
finish, so that in the early spring
the erection of the powerhouse may
be undertaken and the flume pipes
laid.
A Friendly untherlnf at D. D. Pert neon's.
Wednesday night the friends of
Mr. and Mrs. D. D. Ferguson, to
the number of twenty or more, upon invitation, gathered at their attractive home on east Third avenue. It was a sort of house-warming for the newly   and happily
married couple. In pleasing pastimes and the enjoyment of palatable refreshments, the evening hours
just flew by, the guests being loth
to retire at midnight.
BRIEF LOCAL MENTION.
$100,000 on Laurier���who wants
to cover it ?
J. A. Bertois went to Bossburg
yesterday with four passengers.
Sam Handy has sold his interest
in the water-delivery to C. H.
Thomas.
Miss Florence Scott left Thursday
for a vieit with her sister, Mrs.
Farrell, who resides in Sand Point,
Idaho.
The winter school hours, 9:30, a.
m. to 3 p. m., commenced last
Thursday. These short hours last
from November 1st to April 1st
Mr. J. A. McDonald has purchased the cottage adjoining the
meat market building and will
move it to a lot to be selected for
that purpose.
Mr. Lyngholm tells us that next
week he will pack up his stock and
take a vacation till spring. In the
meantime he may take a trip to his
old country homo.
Mrs. Luff, wife of the local manager for the Yale-Columbia Lumber company, arrived in Cascade
this week from Greenwood. Mr.
.and Mrs. Luff will reside here permanently.
J. A. Bertois began regular delivery of water to customers on
Monday last. Ho will hereafter
fill all orders for same Mondays,
Thursdays and Saturdays. He is
prepared, too, to do all manner of
draying.
A cottage on east Third avenue
is being fitted up for occupancy by
Mr. and Mrs. J. A. Bertois. Mrs.
Bertois is expected to return to
Cascade from her visit to her former
home in Wisconsin, between Christmas and New Years.
Parties have been engaged this
week selecting a road grade from
Mr. V. Monnier's Mountain View
mining property to Russell. Extensive preparations are being made
for the shipment of ore to Cascade
from this new and rich mineral
discovery.
Mr. Stanley Mayall left by
Thursday afternoon's train for San
Francisco, where he intends to pass
the winter. We say for Mr. Mayall
that he will find all that could possibly be wished in climatic conditions in that bay city. He thinks
that in the spring he" may return
to his home in England.
J. A. Bertois of the B. C. stables
is again on deck and doing a good
business. Thursday night he had
26 freight horses in his barn. Mr*
Bertois wishes the Record to announce that anytime when at least
three passengers, or two and extra
baggage amounting to $12, desire
transportation to Bossburg, he is
prepared to provide conveyance, the
regular stage coach having been
withdrawn.	
Another Railroad Disaster.
Seven dead, most of them mangled out of all resemblance to humanity, and seven injured, one
perhaps fatally, is the record of a
wreck on the Northern Pacific railroad at about 11 o'clock Monday
night at Debart siding, 28 miles
from Livingston, Montana.
WITHOUT   FOUNDATION?
Toronto Globe Denies tie Report Sent
Oat From Grand Forks
THAT KETTLE RIVER ft, ft CHARTER
Was to Be Disallowed by the Government���
Only Another Political Rnse of the Harkin
Fabricator tor Partlian Effect
Ottawa, Ont., Oct. 27.���The Globe
of yesterday had a leading article
beaded "Discreditable Campaign*
ing," in which it characterises the
story sent out from Grand Forks
by W. Harkin, formerly of the
Montreal Star, that the Kettle
River Valley Railway charter was
to be disallowed, as false and absolutely without foundation, The
Globe adds that it is a transparent*
fraud, and the idea of distributing
such news arose with someone having a purpose to serve.
In the Boundary country the
Harkin scribler is generally discredited. It was an over-dose of
hiB political fabrications that sealed
the fate of C. H. Macintosh and
elected his opponent.
A NEW WAOON  ROAD
To Be Conatrncted   from   Pierre   Lake   tn
If the laws governing assessment
work are found to sanction it, and
it is believed they do,, some $300
will be expended by the United
States Marble company in the construction of a wagon road from the
company's mable quarry over oa
Deep creek to the Kettle river at
Bowen's place where a cable ferry
will be operated. We understand;
the McKay ferry cable has already
been purchased for the ferry.
For the purpose, also, to give the
Easter Sunday mining district sr
ready railway outlet for the shipment of ore, steps are being taken
to continue the wagon read from
the marble works to the Easter
Sunday mine. Cascade will be,
under this arangement, the shipping point for both the marble
quarry and the Easter Sunday
mines. The building of this road
will lessen the distance between
Bossburg and Cascade six or seven
miles.

NOTE AND COMMENT.
The Nelson papers claim that a
round million in gold will be the
cleanup of   mines   in   the Nelson
district this year.
It is reported that J. J. Hill of
the Great Northern and the Van-
ilerbilts have secured control of the
Southern I'liciric railway system.
Grand Forks is asking for a
.government building. The request
is founded on actual need, and it
should he heeded by those in authority.
An explosion in a patent medicine factory in New York last Monday, caused the destruction of several large buildings and a score or
more of human lives.
The census taken by the United
States, tbe tabulation of which has
just been completed, gives that
country a population of 76,295,220,
a gain of 13,000,000 in ten years.
By a fall of loose ground Miles
McNeill a mucker in the B. C. mine
in Summit camp, was instantly
killed last Monday night. N.
Green, a shoveler, was penned in
by a rock causing a fracture of the
right thigh.
H. A. Macdonald, who was run
over by a locomotive in the Rossland railway vards last week, resulting at the time in the necessity
of amputating both his legs, died
from the effects of the shock to his
system the following Thursday.
In all probability Sir Wilfrid
Laurier will be chosen to succeed
himself. What a lively time there
would be in Yale-Kootenay-Cariboo
district if his return to power should
happen to hinge on the delayed
elections in this province I I ! I I ! I
Oh, mama I
Both the Boers and the Filipinos
have been treating their vanquishers to some surprises recently. In
the Philippine islands the natives
were lead by deserters from the U.
S. army. The annoyances suffered
by the British will have the effect
to delay tbe departure of Lord
Roberts from South Africa.
Tariff for protection compels
every consumer in the Boundary
country to pay from 20 to 30 per
cent more for every article he purchases, and he does not receive one
cent's worth of benefit in return.
Much of the money thus extracted
from the earnings of labor goes to
fatten the already over-fed and
under - worked corporation magnates in the way of bonuses.
legal obstructions were never intended for any other purpose than
to give that gigantic monopoly a
"royal flush" hand.
The proposal to throw down
the red-tape obstructions and permit progressive investors to build
railroads wheresoever they will, is a
common-sense view of the railway
problem. Why should the C. P. R.
continue to be an expensive fondling of   the  government?   These
Mr. W. F. Anderson, of Ayr, Ontario, father of \V. Ferguson Anderson, IgcaI traveling passenger
agent of the Canadian Pacific, arrived in Nelson last Friday. The
father and son had not seen each
other for eleven years. Mr. Anderson, Sr., is over 90 yearH of age.
He is now living at Ayr, where he
formerly conducted an extensive
mercantile business.���Nelson Miner.
We'll wager 16-to-l that both in
tbe United Stales and in this Dominion, one or the other set of
scoundrels will be elected. If you
believe what is printed in the newspapers only rogues are running for
office in both countries. Old Ben
Butler said he did not know his
ancestors were noted criminals for
ages back until he was seized with
an ambition to occupy the gubernatorial chair of Massachusetts.
CANDIDATE CHRIS. FOLEY.
The dispatches make it appear
that Lord Roberts was not pleased
with the decision of the colonial
volunteers to return home on the
expiration of their term of enlistment. The Canadian volunteer at
home is the equal of hiB fellow-
beings. To be treated as a mere
animal by subordinate officers of the
regulary army, was a practice on
the part of the epaulelted autocrats
which the intelligent and independent Candians did not appreciate,
and had weight in their decision
to return to their native land.
A report obtains credence as authentic that the Imperial authorities have granted the Dominion the
privilege of a mint, which will be
established in the near future. As
most of the mineral products of
the Dominion are found in British
Columbia, and as Victoria and
Vancouver consider themselves "the
only pebbles on the beach," they
have already locked horns in a
contest to secure the location of the
proposed mint within their respective limits. The government, to
teach thexe jealous towna over on
the water's edge a needed lesson,
should ignore both places���and 'er,
well, why not locate it in Cascade ?
The miners in the anthracite coal
regions of Pennsylvania have won
the contest for reasonable wages
and fair conditions waged the past
two moths against the grinding
mine-owners. The owners hedged
their employes about with conditions that kept them from being
able to accumulate anything���
trading at the company's store
whero prices were high and weights
short, paying high rents for shacks
to live in, provided by the mine-
owners; and demading from the
coal-workers 2,600 lbs. for a ton
coal after screening; the sliding
scale, etc. The forced acquiesence
of the owners in the demand of the
strikers brought relief in a measure
from all these wrongs and a slight
increase in wages. The strike-
leaders demanded obedience to the
laws of the state and orderly conduct on the part of their followers,
which not only won for them the
sympathy of the masses but the
greatest victory ever achieved by
organized labor.

The Sandon Paystreak says:
"Foley will get three votes in the
Slocan to one that will go to Galliher and MacNeill." Seventy five
per cent is a pretty good proportion.
A correspondent writes to the
Industrial World that "Foley will
get 90 per cent of the votes in the
Slocan." Another says, "he will
get every vote cast in Moyie."
Still another says "that all the
voters in Eholt are solid for Foley."

THE RISING OF LABOR.
ON TH1 PBNNSTI.VANIA STRIKE.
I hear in the Autumn voices
Of winds a jubilant tone,
For the heart of the world rejoices
Thut Labor shall claim its own.
It has lain in the dust for ages,
By the feet of Might downtrod,
And the world stood back and sighed, "AlackI
But this is the will of God.
He has put His curse on Labor���
It suffers for Adam's sin."
But Truth, like the stroke of a sabre,
Has let the sunlight in.
She has cut down the creed-made curtain
And shown us the true God's face,
And it is not dark with hatred's mark,
But fair with love's own grace.
He is not the God of classes,
He is not the God of gold,
But he is the God of the masses,
Who toil in the heat and the cold;
And unto the heart of Labor,
Desolate, sick and numb,
He speaks from the skies and He says, "Arise!
For the day and tbe hour have come."
And out of its man-made prison,
Out of the dark and dust,
Has Labor at last arisen,
And it cries to Might, "Be just!"
It wastes no word and no gesture;
In the calmness of Truth it stands.
It pleaded too long at the ear of Wrong
Unheard���now it commands.
Oh, Blow are God's mills in Grinding,
"But they grind exceedingly small,"
And the greedy of heart shall be finding
That God is the God of all.
They shall learn how the Mighty Toiler,
This maker of men and things,
Of earth and stars and worlds afar,
Ranks Labor above crowned kings.
Oh, heart of Labor, keep steady,
And stand for the rights you need I
For the world was never so ready
To pray for the fall of greed,
The waves of our prayers, like billows,
Shall bear your hopes on their crest,
And carry you out of the lands pf doubt
And into tbe harbor of rest.

AND THERE WERE OIANTS.
A Distinction Must be Made Between (Hants
and  Large Men.
In the mythology of all nations
is preserved the story of giants. It
is as universal as the Deluge legends, which are relied on to support the Mosiac account of the
Flood. They are found everywhere and in all forms, from the
etory of the Titans, of whom Hesiod
tang to the huge creatures of whom
our coast legends tell. A distinction must be made between giants
and large men. Of the latter there
are many historical instances.
Fredrick the Great had a Scotchman in his guard who stood 8 feet
3 inches in his bare feet. Pliney
tells of an Arabian who was 9 feet
"\ incheB tall, and says he heard
of two others, each of whom was
six inches taller than this one.
The writer of the Book of Deuteronomy speaks of Og, king of Ba-
shan, who was the "remnant of the
giants," whose bed was nine cubits
long. There is some doubt as to
just how long "the cubit of a man"
which was the measurement in this
ease, was, but Og's bed was probab
ly 15 feet long. If he occupied it
entirely, he was a man of extraordinary size. But more of the Basha n
people further on. Goliath was
over 10 feet tall but he could not
properly be called a giant, any
more than Fredrick's Scotchmon
above referred to. When giants are
mentioned in the legends, a race is
meant not single individuals.
It is nothing surprising that now
and then a man read et abnormal
with corresponding development.
For a long time a common belief
was that the inhabitants of Patagonia were a race of giants. Magellan said they were so tall that
his men only came up to their
waists. The truth on this point
seems to be that Patagonians are a
large race of men, averaging rather
more than Europeans, but they
cannot be called giants. An explanation of the stories of giants,
which Roman and Grecian travellers preserved in old lime poems
and prose writings, may be that
these people were themselves of
small stature. The armor, rings
and other articles of wearing apparel,   that   have  been preserved
from the years before the Christian
era, are too small for tbe average
men of to-day. Hence barbarous
races seemed gigantic by  coin rant.
In this connection special interest attaches to the biblical reference to Bashan and the statement
that Og was "the remnant of the
giants." Bashan was the name of
the region lying east of the Jordan,
and there is abundant evidence that
it was at one time inhabited by a
race of men very different from
those now found in Asia, or, for
that matter, anywhere in the world
to-day. The remains of the cities
Btill exist, in many cases almost as
perfect as the flays the buildings
were erected, so far as the bare
structures themselves are concerned. The material employed was
stone, and the size of the blocks
used indicates either that the builders had great mechanical appliances or were of extraordinary
strength. The size of the buildings
suggests that they may have been
the habitation of a large race.
There is no authentic record of the
occupancy of these buildings by
any people who built such edifices
and the story of the advance of
the Israelites through the country
confirms the idea that the original
inhabitants had disappeared almost
wholly. Og was "a remnant" of
the gigantic people, the builders of
these immense cities, whose structure is a wonder to the modern
architects.
A possible explanation of some
of the giant myths may be found in
the suggestion that, like the story
of dragons and other monsters,
they are survival of traditions
handed down from men who lived
in what the geologists called the
Tertiary Period���that is, men who
were contemporary with the dyno-
saur, ichyosaur, the megatherium
and those huge mastodons, whose
bones are so frequently unearthed
in the Yukon valley. The climatic
conditions of the world at that time
were favorable to the production of
large types of animal life, and there
is intrinsic probability in the suggestion that, if man lived then, he
was of a stature somewhat proportionate to the huge creatures with
which he was surrounded. This explanation is one that ought to commend itself to those who adhere to
the accuracy of the biblical narrative in all particulars. "And there
were giants in those days," the
writer of Genesis says, and these
giants lived just before the great
cataclysm which is called The
Flood. Geology fixes the Ice Age
at the close of the Tertiary Period,
which was the time when gigantic
races of men may have lived. There
is perhaps more than apparent
identity between the Ice Age of
geology and The Flood of the Genesis story.
The explanation sometimes offered for these myths���that they are
survivals from the childhood of the
race���seem utterly unintelligible,
although some very learned people
adopt it. It has yet to be proved
that the race ever had any childhood. Go back as far as you will
and the remains of high civilization
are found, so we fancy that all explanation of myths and legends
based upon the notion that there
was a time when mankind were all
much in the condition, intellect
ually, of children, must be dismiss
ed as a latter day fable devised to
account for things that cannot
otherwise be explained, without
upsetting some long-cherished no
lions.���Colonist.

November 8,1900
BRIEF LOCAL MENTION.
The Yale-Columbia Lumber company, whoso principal manufacturing equipment is located in Cascade,
is kept quite busy filling shipping
orders.
The opening dinner at the Cosmopolitan hotel last Sunday evening was a most palatable spread,
being partaken of by many of our
citizens.
Mr. and Mrs. T. E. Mahaffy left
for Moyie Monday afternoon last.
Mr. Mahaffy will engage in the
clothing business in that thriving
town on Moyie lake.
There will be a meeting of the
electors of Cascade school district
at the school house to-day for the
purpose of electing a trustee to
succeed Paul Rochussen, resigned.
A. M. Button, chief millwright
for the Yale-Columbia Lumber
company, returned to Cascade from
Robson Tuesday, where he had been
installing some machinery tfor his
company.
Mr. Ernest Bunting, for a long
time past employed as an assistant
at the B. C. M. & M. syndicate's
store here, has secured a position
with Rendell & Co,, of Greenwood,
and left Tuesday to occupy his new
position.
Hotel keepers intending to renew
their licenceu for the coming year
should bear in mind that their applications, accompanied by the
necessary deposit, should be sent in
at once. No applications will be
received later than the 15th of this
month.
Rev. Mr. Rae, of Columbia,
preached a very acceptable sermon
in the Presbyterian church here
Sunday morning last. He announced that he would preach in
the Cascade church every other
Sunday forenoon hereafter till
further notice.
R. Kelman and R. G. Ritchie
were guests of the Grant Bros, last
Sunday, going up to Gladstone the
Saturday night previous. They
enjoyed royal entertainment, as
does every one who tarries at the
Grant home in the burg by the
Basin.
Jas. Nesbit, who did not go to
Grand Forks to work in the smelter
as was reported last week, came
very near suffering serious if not
fatal injury on Sunday last while
working in the tunnel of the Cascade Water Power company. A
rock said to weigh about 50 pounds
fell from the roof of the tunnel onto
his head. The big rock was preceded by a small one, which
caused Nesbit to move his head
slightly back, otherwise he would
have received tbe full force of the
larger one, which, had it struck
squareley on top of his head would
certainly have caused instant
death. As it was the glancing blow
cut the scalp about an inch, not
causing any serious injury. Fate
was kind to Mr. Nesbit that time.
Und All Taken.
Mr. Bowen, who has been for a
number of weeks employed in development work on the quarries
of the United Stales Marble company, over on Deep creek, the
other side of the line, tells a Record
reporter that there are some fifteen
pre-emptors in the neighborhood
of his new location, and the land is
pretty much taken. This is a
pointer for Cascade. We should go
to work and get a wagon road over
into that country as soon as possible.
