IT IS SIR WILFRID LAURIER
He is Returned to Power with an
Increased Majority.
HUGH JOHN AND SIE CHAELES SLAIN.
A Summary of the Returns as Gleaned from the Dispatches���Cold Day for
the Conservative Leaders.
The elections throughout the Dominion, resulted in a sweeping victory for the Liberals. A remarkable feature of the contest was the
fact that every member of the government was returned, while every
Conservative leader of any prominence, with the exception of Hag-
gart and Charles Hibbert Tupper,
were defeated. Hugh John Macdonald, who was looked upon as
the coming leader of the party, was
defeated in Haldimand, and Foster
was snowed under hy Blair in St.
John.
From the returns available it appears that the Conservatives made
a net gain of about 14 seats in Ontario and three in Manitoba. In the
Territories and British Columbia
no change was made in the repetitive strength, of. the parties. In
Prince Edward Island the Liberals
made a net gain of one seat. In
New Brunswick they gained five,
In Nova Scotia they gained six;
and in Quebec they gained ten.
These figures give a gain of 17 seats
for the Conservatives as against 22
for the Liberals, which would make
the Liberal majority greater by five
Prince Edward Island.
The Liberals made again of one
seat in Prince Edward Island, Mc-
Kinnon, the Liberal candidate in
Queens East, defeating Martin, the
former Conservative member. The
government also gained Kings, but
lost Prince East.
Nova Scotia.
In the province of Nova Scotia
the Liberals gained seven seats and
lost one. In Cape Breton Sir
Charles Tupper, lender of the Conservative party was badly beaten
by Dr. Kendall. In 1896 Sir
Charles had a majority of over 800
in the constituency.
New Brunswick.
The Liberal* carried New Brunswick into their column by more
than two to one. Returns are yet
to come in from Northumberland
and York, but the indications are
that the Conservatives will be unable to muster more than four representatives from the province.
Manitoba.
The returns from Manitoba indicate that Hon. Clifford Sifton is the
only straight Liberal candidate returned from the prairie province.
The latest returns place his majority over Hugh John Macdonald at
300. Richardson, the fighting Lib
eral, defeated .the straight Liberal
candidate in Lisgar with a substan
tial majority, and all other seats
were carried by straight Conservatives, save Winnipeg, where Puttee,
the Labor candidate defeated E. D.
Martin, who ran as an Independent Liberal. The returns received
indicate the loss of three seats by
the government.
Brandon���Hon. Clifford Sifton,
Liberal, elected with 300 majority
over Hugh John Macdonald.
Lisgar���Richardson,   Independent, defeated Winkler, Liberal.
Macdonald���Boyd, Conservative,
elected with. 375 majority over
Rutherford.
Marquette���Dr. Roche, Conservative, elected over Thompson, Liberal.
Provencher���La Riviere, Conservative, elected.
Selkirk���Haslom, Conservative, is
probably elected, but the vote is
very close with some doubt as to
the result.
, Winnipeg���Puttee, Labor candi��
dale, elected over E. D. Martin, Independent Liberal, with 700 majority.
Ontario.
The returns from 87 constituencies in the province of Ontario
show very considerable Conservative gams. Of those reported the
Conservatives captured 21, which
were formerly held by Liberals and
lost 12, making a net gain of nine,
which just equals the party's loss
in the province of Quebec.
Quebec.
Returns from 61 constituencies in
the province of Quebec show that
5'6 Liberals have been elected and
but eight Conservatives. The returns indicate a Liberal gain of 8
seats with the loss of two.
British Columbia.
New Westminster���Aulay Morrison, Liberal, was re-elected with
250 majority over Hon. Edgar
Dewdney, formerly lieutenant-governor of the province, who made
the race in the Conservative interest.
Vancouver Island���Ralph Smith
the labor leader,defeated Sloan, Independent Liberal, and Clive Phil-
lips-Wolly, ConBervutive. Smith's
majority is placed at 300.
Victoria���Earle and Prior, Conservatives, defeated Drury and
Riley, Liberals. Their majority is
about 200.
Burrard���Polling takes place on
Dec. 6th.
Yale-Kootenay-Canboo���Polling
takes place on Nov. 21st.
The latest information at hand
shows the relative standing, with
five places yet to hear from, to be :
Got.    Opp.   Ind.
Ontario    -      -    36 58 2
Quebec          -    - 56 8 ���

Some say it means the development of another water power. Some
say it is another smelter proposition, others that some speculator
who thought he had a fence around
the earth, but discovered he had
overlooked a little strip of land
with possible valuable water prvili-
ges, so he's run a string of stakes-
along the river bank commencing,
about 800 feet above the Gilpin saw
mill and exteding down tbe river
to the Graham line, a distance of
three miles or so. The stakes are
said to have been driven under the
euppervision of the. Manley push,
while the land belongs to the C.P.R.
The territory staked covers all the
rapids in the Kettle river between
Cascade and Grand Forks. Those
who pretend to be "on the inside,"
say that a smelter is to be immediately erected near the Graham
line, which is about three miles
from Cascade.
BRIEF LOCAL MENTION.

VOLUME III.
The first issue of the Cascade
Record appeared on November 12,
1898. The first issue of the 3d volume is before you. The fate of nations, as well as of communities, is
sometimes dependent on the staying
qualities of newspapers. Apparently the Record is here to stay. Editors may flourish and decay, may
come and go, but the local journal
greets its readers regularly once a
week, in boom times and in times
of depression, and in the perhaps
remote future when it is printed on
a $30,000 press, and its types are
set with a $4,001* typesetting machine, its present efforts and persistency will be reverted to with
pride by the historian. So it steps
off in the beginning of the third
year of its career with as much determination and hope as inspired
it the day it slid from the dry dock
into the sea of journalism. The
Record wishes hereby to express its
appreciation of the liberal support
it has enjoyed in the past, hoping
it may not be lessened, but increased, in the future.
AN EVENTFUL WEEK.
The principal events of the past
week have been of much interest in
the United States as well as in our
land.
The home-coming of the Canadian volunteers from South Africa,
has kept many of the larger cities
of the east in a blaze of patriotic
enthusiasm.
Then the elections in the republic south of us, the result of which
was thought to be of great import
to this country, because it would
determine whether our imperial
authorities would have to deal with
a friendly or an unfriendly policy
of a nation constantly and necessarily in close touch with us, has
been watched with solicitous interest.
Then came the Dominion elections, which were, in their result,
to determine whether the policy of
the Liberals or the Conservatives
should dominate the public affairs
of our fair country. These momentous questions in both countries
have been settled for some time to
come beyond question. The masses have so willed it in no uncertain
sounds.
By the emphatic declaration of
the voters of the United States,
Prtsident McKinley's policy on
tariff, finance and expansion has
received indubitable endorsation,
and though that country is onerously burdened with trusts and
combines, that not only control the
government, but the prices of labor
and its products, the people say it
is well.
In Canada the Liberal govern
ment, under the leadership of Sir
Wilfrid Laurier, has received the
pronounced commendation of the
people.   Thus there will be no up
heavals in the realms of commerce
or politics, and this fact being as
sured, there will be no halting in
the onward march in growth and
development in all the fields of activity.   It is well.
NOTE AMI COMMENT.
AH is not lost, yet���Chris Foley
iB still in the ring.
Grandpa Tupper and Biliy Bryan
were game to the last.
Wanted���an office. Apply to
Hugh John Macdonald,
At Large.
The columns of the Vancouver
and Victoria papers are highly
seasoned with mint.
Hugh John is out in the cold.
But even there he will be much less
troubled than if he had remained
premier of Manitoba and made
never so feeble an attempt to enforce his prohibition law.
The Constitution, Declaration of
Independence, and the Monroe doctrine were all shot to pieces with
paper bullets, Tuesday, across the
line. Henceforth the Yanks will
be a go-as-you-please people.
Tod Sloan, the American jockey,
has been released from engagements
to ride for the Prince of Wales.
William Waldorf Astor now has a
companion in giief, both having
been turned down by the Prince.
The Canadian militia consists of
about 40,000 men, and although
legislative power exists to enable
the government to keep up its
strength hy ballot if occasion
should arise, and to call upon the
entire male population between 18
and 60 years to serve under arms
in case of emergency, service has
been cheerfully offered, and no difi-
cultv experienced in keeping up
the proper strength of the force.
Two of Nelson's editors, having
signed articles to defer the settling
of personalities till after the election, in order not to deprive Sir
Charles of two valuable votes, the
citizens of that lurg are looking
forward to the coming of the editorial scrap with much interest. The
third editor, Mr. Houston, is to
referee both sides, furnish physicians, smelling salts,brickbats, pay
burial expenses and attend to the
probating of the estates of the deceased paste-and-scissors warriors.
Before the smoke of battle shall
have been wafted hence, the "missing link" may be discovered.
Col. Haywood, who has been examining the Franklin camp mines
for English capitalists, says that
the timber wealth of that district
is enormous, and that no part of
the Boundary district can compare
with it in this respect. Innumerable
cedar and hemlock trees are to be
found there of a great size, and the
supply will last for many years.
He says that this timber can easily
be floated down the North Fork
to Grand Forks. This will, however, be of more importance to Cascade than to Grand Forks, as the
largest sawmill in the Boundary
country will be looated here.
In British Columbia, the election
just passed has brought a most import public question well to the
fore���that of determining whether
the Japanese and Chinese shall be
favored indescriminately with the
right to naturalization and registration in the Dominion of Canada.
The problem is one that demands
immediate and definite treatment.
What shall be done with them ?
Down on the coast, it is said, several
thousands demanded the right to
vote, and for aught we know, did
exercise that "sovereign" privilege.
Anyhow, the circumstance should
make an indentation on even the
calloused brain of the labor vote.
The twentieth century will have
24 leap years, the greatest number
possible. February will have five
Sundays three times���1920, 1948,
and 1976. The earliest possible
date on which Easter can occur is
March 12. The last time it occur-
ed ou that date was 1818. The latest date that Easter can occur iB
April 25. It will occur but once in
the coming century on that date���
1943. The middle day of the century will be January 1, 1951.
There will be 380 eclipses during
the coming century.

THE CASCADE RECORD
IN THE SHADOW OF THE SAILS.
3
That Miss Delamnre's yachting
party would prove a success was a
foregone conclusion. Miss Dela-
more was herself a success, and all
her undertakings bore the imprint
uf her conquering personality.
Those honored l>y her invitations
were in the habit of accepting
promptly, while those not so fortunate were properly envious and
cast down.
Accordingly, when for this particular occasion she received regrets, and those, too, from Kitty
Crawford, on whom she had principally relied for the entertainment of her guests, Miss Delamore
simply set her lips together with
Napoleonic firmness nnd drove at
once to Kitty's home to inquire into the matter.
Shu found the young lttily in the
garden, languidly occupying it
l^tmmock, and attired in a negligee
gowtf^which the male observer
WKuld have thought enchanting,
bit* vvhich Miss Delamore was too
nbsorhed to notice. "As for your
not going, my dear," she said,
plunging into the conversation
with her usual impetuosity, "that's
all nonsense, you know. It's got to
be arranged somehow. I've depended on having you sing, and besides, the yacht is a perfect dream
now that it has been refitted.
What's the matter, any way, Kitty?" As she hurled this question
at her friend she bent upon her a
.controlling gaze such as the hypnotist fixes on his prospective victim.
But the other girl was as shrewd
as she and as self possessed.
"Oh, I don't know, Lou," she an-1
swered, with a carelessness that was
almost too elaborate. 'I'm rather
used up, and besides, the sea breeze
burns one to a crisp, especially the
nose. And considering the tilt of
mine, you know, I can't be too
careful about giving it undue prominence."
"What absurdity���from Kitty
Crawford!" thought Miss Delamore; but she only said: Nonsensel
Wear a veil. I'm going to have the
jolliest sort of a crowd, Kitty. I
want you to meet Miss Huntington,
of Baltimore; she's really distract-
ingly pretty. And Mr. Jack Wai-
ford���let's see. Do you know him?"
Miss Crawford, lowering her inscrutable lids, admitted having
met the gentleman in question at
her uncle's seaside residence. She
neglected te add, however, that they
had immediately and mutually
fallen in love, a state of affairs culminating in an engagement after
six weeks acquaintance, and that
just a month before this very
morning they had quarreled irretrievably and parted forever.
Nor did she mention that in
breaking this brief engagement she
had come as near to breaking her
heart as a well conducted nineteenth century girl ever comes to
so ill advised a proceeding.
Not being given to indiscriminate confidences, Kitty referred to
none of these things, but their recollection may account for her saying, in a very languid voice, just
as her friend rose to go, "Don't expect me tomorrow, Lou; but if the
day ia lovely, and I happen to feel
just like it, I may come."
Whereupon Miss Delamore, Interpreting the remark as an unconditional surrender, kissed her
enthusiastically, and went away in
triumph.
But when Kitty came on board
the yacht next morning, there was
not in her manner   the  faintest
trace of listlessnebs or languor. In
her blue yachting suit, with a jaunty sailor hat perched carefully on
one Bide, she was the very embodiment of girlish animation.
Her advent was hailed with an
enthusiasm universal, except in the
case of one young man, who exclaimed under his breath: ''The
devil I She here?" and walked to
the other side of the yacht to recover his composure.
For Jack Walford was still young
enough to believe that love is eternal, and though he had no intention of making any unmanly fuss
over the matter, he knew very well
thut bis heart had been irremediably broken by the cruelty of this
coquette in blue, now lavishing
her dangerous smiled on allcomers.
Jack looked out over the calm
water and thought of the evening
just a month before when he and
she hud walked together under the
sighing branches of the pines, and
the sea breezes had ruffled the bewitching little curls around her
forehead.
The poor boy choked to remember the trifle "light as air" which
had been the cause of their quarrel,
and vainly tried to console himself
with the reflection that if Kitty
had ever really Invert him she could
not have made those savage speeches
that had cut him to the heart.
One recollection, however, gave
Jack a melancholy comfort. When
Miss Crawford had drawn from her
finger the ring which he had placed
there with so much love and pride
a few short weeks before, Jack had
received the little token without a
word, and turning on his heel, had
hurled it into the dancing waves,
and then, without a single backward glance, he had walked away,
and by this course of conduct, Jack
thought, perhaps not unreasonably,
that he had properly sustained the
dignity of a much injured man.
Aud now, though he had been
taken by surprise and compelled to
beat a hasty retreat, Jaok, who was
grit to his finger ends, had no intention of surrendering without a
blow. After fifteen minutes' reflection, he found himself able to
approach Kitty with a careless
cordiality; and then immediately
devoted himself to making the acquaintance of Miss Huntington,
who was almost as pretty as her
enthusiastic hostess had declared.
And so the morning passed uneventfully, and the afternoon was
well advanced, when Miss Delamore culled up Kitty to sing.
Kitty responded with the readiness which was one of her charms.
She brought her guitar from the
cabin, took her seat conveniently
near the spot where Jack was carrying on a very fair imitation of a
flirtation with Miss Huntington,
and without preface or apology,
began one of the favorite ballads of
the day.
Kitty's voice was like herself,
piquant and sweet and full of
charming surprises. She Bang
snatches of operas, rollicking college songs, and now and then one
of those tender, plaintive little airs
that compel neither smiles nor
tears, but in some unaccountable
way reach the heart.
And her audience applauded
hungrily, and would not be satis
fled, till at last she eaid, with a
pretty air of determination, "This
is positively the last." As she
spoke the looked full at Jack, and
for the first time that day their
eyes met.
She turned away her head and
a beautiful color burned in her
cheeks as she struck a vibrating
chord on the guitar. There was in
her voice, too, a tremulousuess
which caught the attention of the
listeners almost from the first word.
We wandered in the shadow of tbe pines, my
love and I,
In spite of himself, Jack writhed
on his chair. The memories of one
eventful night grew vivid at those
words.
Again he seemed to hear the
weird music of the rustling pines,
and the face of the singer grew misty before his blurring eyes. It
would have been more delicate in
] Kitty, the poor fellow reflected savagely, to select a song without such
allusions. But like all else in this
day of torture, it must be endured,
and Jack braced himself to listen.
We wandered in the shadow of the pines, my
love and I,
Ab the wind was blowing freshly from the sea:
But a sudden, fitful darkness stole ucrosB the
summer sky,
And a shadow came between my love and me.
Some hasty words were spoken, and then almost
unawares
Husty unswers to unthinking anger led,
And our heartsick, bitter longing aud our weeping and our prayers
Ne'er cau inuke those false and cruel words
unsaid.
The young man wiped the drops
of perspiration from his forehead.
He was pale lo the lips, and the
girl from Baltimore noticed it and
asked him confidentially if he were
seasick.
Jack did not answer. Iu fact be
did not even hear. For now into
Kitty's voice there had come a
poignant note of longing and entreaty, and her guitar, as if responsive to her mood, Bobbed out its
rippling accompaniment:
He took the ring I gave him, nor oast a glance at
me,
Ab be held the jeweled trinket in bis hand,
And then he turned and tossed it in the waters of
the sea,
Where tbe waves were splashing idly on the
sand:
He went his way unbeading the hot tears I could
not hide,
He went his way and not a word was said,
But my stubborn heart was breaking underneath
its mask of pride,
And the pine trees sobbed in pity overhead.
The words were crude, the melody
simple; yet, as the girl sang from
her heart, she somehow touched
those divineet of life's harmonies,
which are the inspiration of all the
arts.
And more than one of the listeners found their eyes suspiciously
moist, though perhaps they themselves would have been puzzled to
tell why,
I wake from bitter dreaming but to call aloud
your name;
I sleep again to dream of you once more:
And my stubborn pride has left me-1 admit 1
was to blame;
Forgive, me dear, and love me as before,
For tbe future is o'crshadowed with the darkness
of despair.
In the sky of life love's sun no longer shines,
And I'd give the whole world gladly, once again
to meet you there,
Kcunited in the shadow of the pines.
The song closed abruptly, and
Kitty, leaving her seat somewhat
hurriedly, turned her back upon
her still clamorous audience.
Jack followed, and as they stood
in a sheltered nook, his shoulder
close pressed to hers, he saw that
her delicate lips were quivering.
"Kitty," (aid the young man,
his voice thick Kith love's sublime
intoxication, "can you ever forgive
me?"
She turned her brimming eyes upon him. "If I hadn't wanted forgiveness myself," she said, I should
never have written that song."
Then, with that indifference for
appearances characteristic of great
souls in moments of exaltation,
Jack kissed her in the shadow of
the sales, and as the relenting angel
sheathed his flaming sword, the
lovers, hand in hand, re-entered
paradise.���The Argosy.

A special dinner will be served
at the Cosmopolitan hotel every
Sunday, at 5 p. m.
Rev. Mr. Rae of Columbia, will
hold services here again to-morrow
morning in the Presbyterian
church at 11 o'clock.
Now a report comes that a smelter is to lie erected somewhere about
midway between Cascade and Grand
Forks, whidi will receive its motive
power from Cascade,
J. A. Bertois will deliver water
to all requiring it every Monday,
Thursday, and Saturday. He is
prepared, too, to do any kind of
hauling. His team is always
ready.
At a meeting of the electors of
this school district held last Monday, at the Cascade school house,
Mr. T. P. Carden was chosen trustee, in place of Mr. Paul Rochussen, resigned.
Mr. J. II. McDonald moved into
the new dwelling he recently purchased near the meat market, Monday last. The house will be moved
on a lot about 100 feet west, on the
same street.
Last Friday Phoenix held its
first municipal election. The following pioneer citizens were chosen:
James A. Clark, Joseph H. Graham, Michael McBean,' Dougald
Mclnnis, James Marshall, John A.
Morrin, James Punch.
Mr. F. H. McCarter, of Grand
Forks Gazette, left Monday for
Spokane. Mr. McCarter owns
property in that city, and still votes
there, and Tuesday he expected to
land a ballot about 2x3 feet for
"William Jennings Bryan. From
Spokane Mr. McCarter took passage over the O. R. & N. for San

The Phoenix Board, of Trade and
Pioneer were after Constable Dinsmore last week, for having lopped
off $300 from the government appropriation of $1,000 for the construction of tbe White's Camp and
Phoenix trail. The Board of Trade
ordered its secretary to send the
following dispacth to the minister of
Landn and Works : "One thousand
dollars appropriated for trail to
White's Camp, but Constable Dinsmore refuses to spend more than
seven hundred. This will leave trail
unfinished in middle of woods, quite
useless. Phoenix Board of Trade
petitions you to complete trail,
which is important to district, and
strongly protests against interfer-
of subordinate officers."
Let Deed! Ratify Sentiment.
Ladies of Canada:
Tho world never raw such an exhibition of patriotic sentiment as
the African war called forth.
Canadians, Australians and the
splendid youth of Natal fought
side by side with the British tea
planters of Ceylon and India.
Australia drinks the teas of Ceylon and India, while Canada already drinks their black tea.
Drinkers of Japan tea should try
their Green teas. Up to date tea
merchants (the Salada Company,
for instance) now sell them entirely
on merit. "Middle -of -the -road"
men are only waiting for supplies.
While "sit-on-the-fence-men" are
waiting to see how the cat will
jump.
Ladies of Canada, we pray you,
aid the British planter.���Colonist.
