CASCADE, B. C, AUGUST n, 1900.
No. 40.
John Earle Causes Arrest of A. H. Thompson...Latter Charted with Theft of a Saddle.
,*, The latter part of last May there
were three burglaries committed
in Cascade, nil being on ihe mine
night. John Earle lost a line saddle that night, the B. C. store was
entered, several articles taken and
the cash drawer relieved of what it
contained after being removed to
the back yard, and some bedding
wus also taken from the Presbyterian manse.
Mr. Earle heard not long ago
that Ma ice! Pierre had traded a
horse for a saddle, while at the
snme time he noticed that Mr.
Thompson had a new horse. On
making an investigation he learned that Pierre had traded a horse
for a saddle with Mr. Thompson.
On being shown the saddle he recognized it as the one taken from
his stables last May. He swore to
a complaint charging Thompson
with stealing it. Officer Dinsmore
came down from the Forks and
placed Thompson under arrest. As
stated above the saddle was identified by both Earle and J. P Graber.
Mr Thompson denied taking the
saddle or any saddle from Earle's
stable, stating that he got the one
in question from a freighter. The
case occupied all the afternoon, and
was adjourned for one week.
Mr. Earle was allowed the possession of the saddle and Pierre
was permitted to tnke his horse
home, which Mr. Thompson had
been using with another in carrying the mails. Mr. Thompson was
ni lowed his liberty on his own
recognizance, and there the case
stands. __
The purchase of the Columbia
townsite by the Grand Forks Town-
site Co. means nice for ihe former
place than for the latter. If the
railway station is not moved to
Grand Forks, that city will have
to move to Columbia. The 50-
cent charge for being coveyed from
the station to town will force that
change. Either that or a cheaper
mode of conveyance.
Mr. Angus Cameron has received
several interesting letters from Geo.
McKugo, who it will be remembered joined the Strut henna Horse
from Cascade. One of these letters
has been handed in for publication,
and will appear next week.
The rains of the past few days
have effected good in several  ways

About one per cent of the people
who visit the Paris exposition

Bressi, the Murderer of King
Humbert had many accomplices,
a dozen or more of whom have been
placed under arrest.
The Associated Boards of Trade,
which closed its second annual
meet at Nelson Friday last, it must
be ennceeded, is a most commendable and useful institution. Being
composed of the foremost business
men of the districts represented, it
intelligently voiced the sentiments
of their constituents. In its deliberations it dealt with many important matters, embodying its opinions in adopted resolutions. These
resolutions will not only prove of
much benefit to our legislators as
an expression of the needs and demands of the people whom they
were chosen to serve, but through
them, to the entire country. The
concensus of opinion expressed by
the associated boards should not be
lightly regarded by the solons at
Victoria. Among the most important matters touching Boundary
interests dwelt upon were the following:
The resolutions committee, which
took in hand the preparation of a
motion regarding the proposed rail-
road line from Carson on the international line to Greenwood, report-
id with two resolutions, one repre
senting the views of the majority
nnd the second tbat of ihe minority. The foreman recited that as
great expense is caused by the need
of applying for a special charter
for individual railway companies,
the convention favored the passage
of a general railway act on the
lines of the present provincial
tramway act, save that there should
be no restriction as to building to
the international boundary.
The minority resolution was
moved by Messrs. Ross and Cummings, and recommended the association to endorse legislation by
which any railway on complying
with proper conditions as to expropriation of land, etc., shall be
permitted to build a railway from
any one point of the province to
another. The convention adopted
the majority report of the committee.
At last year's meeting a resolution was passed recommending the
legislature to place the expenditure
on roads and trails under the charge
of a board of commissioners elected
by the people. A clause was added
to this yesterday with the additional suggestion that the local
board of commissioners should
have power to allow claim owners
to perform work on roads and
trails under their supervision, and
that the claim owners have the
right to record such work as as-
sesBtnentH upon their claims to an
amount not exceeding $200 for any
one claim.
The matter of the representation
from the interior of the province in
the legislature was dealt with as
Resolved���That whereas in the
recent provincial election six Kootenay electorial districts polled
more votes than the whole of Vancouver island with fourteen seats,
and as the Boundary district iB

at the recent election it polled more
votes than any other whole constituency excepting Victoria, Vancouver, Rossland proper, and Nelson,
and many times the number polled
by some constituencies with two
members; That such gross inequalities are a scandal and an outrage. Be it

It is said to have had its origin in
the action of the railway authorities in discharging union men instead of non-union, in order to weed
out that class. The movement does
not seem to have assumed very
formidable proportions.
They Filiate Loot, Torture, aad   Murder
Women and Infants.
A story of Russian brutality in
China is told by Mrs. E. B. Drew,
wife of the British commissioner of
customs at Tientsin, who arrived
from the orient on the transport
Logan.   She says:
"They pillaged, looted, tortured'
and destroyed right and left. There-
were many infants and children
killed by bayonet thrusts. And
many were tossed from bayonet
points only to be caught and again
tossed time and again. There is
ample evidence of these unspeakable occurrences. And about Chinese women, they were mistreated
and murdered in house after house.
It seemed as if nothing could stay
the mad frenzy of these Russians.
Out from Tientsin along the Pei
Ho and Yellow rivers are numerous little villages. The Russians
swept through the villages, destroying life and property. In these
places they also tossed infants and
other children in the air from bayonets. And every time this child
tossing tragedy was indulged in,
the dead body of a mother, father,
or both, would be near by.
"The Russians also drove women
and children into the Pei Ho and
Yellow rivers, where they were
drowned. After shooting and murdering to their heart's content, the
Russians would pillage, loot and
burn every house that caught their
eye. There was no attempt at concealing all of this remarkably barbarous conduct. I do not pretend
to say how many woman and
children were butchered by the
Russians. I never heard the number estimated; save that a great
many had been bayoneted and
some shot. In view of what they
have been guilty of in and around
Teintsin, none of us was surprised
to hear of a barbarous act of the
Russians at Taku. It is generally
accepted as true at Teintsin that
the Chinese commander was murdered by the Russians when he was
in the act of surrendering his

J August 11, 1900
I have been favored with a copy
of the twenty-sixth annual report
of the Registrar of Births, Marriages and Deaths, of the province
of British Columbia. I did not deserve it as I have latterly neither
married nor killed anybody and
can't claim to be the father of even
a new idea. But I appreciate the
kindness all the same. I have just
been reading Todhunter's Treatise
on the Integral Calculus, and
after tbat, this hatch, match and
despatch production absolutely
scintillates with silent sapience
and becomes at times positively
witty. I daresay I am the only
man in B. C, outside the compiler,
printers and publishers, who has
read the brochure clean through.
But it was worth it. In a way life
is a long, lingering joke and such
reports as this only emphasize it.
They are facts founded on fiction.
The fiction consists of hope. When
you are bom you hope to get married and when you are married you
hope to die.
Let us glance sideways and
draw wisdom from tbe experiences
and follies of others. The report
is dated December 31, 1899. It
furnishes complete data for the
year 1898 and a contrast with 1897.
So that a good many people who
were obliging enough to furnish
(in their incomings, dallyings and
outgoings) data for the report,
haven't lived long enough to have
read it. However, that's neither
here nor there.   Neither are they.
The returns indicate 2038 births,
1340 deaths and 965 marriages in
1898, against 1330 births, 1013
deaths and 626 marriages in 1897.
This shows an increase of about
324 per cent only in the deaths,
whereas the marriages and births
match each other with almost
moral exactitude, 53 1-5 per cent
increase in births and 53 2-5 per
cent advance in marriages. Perhaps the average newcomer to B. C.
would close the book when he got
so far, and, smiling with smug
complacency, congratulate himself
on his excellent choice of a moral
and evenly balanced community
among whom to reside.
But nevertheless some few items
do not quite hit it off with absolute
nicety. Frinstans: In 1898,
whereas in the Victoria district,
marriages increased over 53 per
cent, births only increased 14 per
In the Westminster district, a 14
per cent advance in marriages
yielded the prodigious increase of
135 per cent in births, whilst in
Chilliwack with a 100 per cent ad
vance in wedding festivities, there
was an actual decline of 224 Per cent
in the births. All of which goes to
show that the political atmosphere
at Victoria is a death blow to propagation of the species, that Chilliwack is as frost bitten and lonesome as it sounds and that New
Westminster must be one of the most
loving and neighbourly towns on
the North American continent.
The more you try to find reason
for the above, the more you can't.
The only fact you can prove by the
figures is that dead parents have
the most children. Frinstans, with
a 40 per cent increase in deaths in
Victoria there is 14 per cent increase of infants, whilst in Chilly-
back with a decline of 41f in the
deaths, and an alarming increase of
100 per cent in the marriages, births
drop down 224 notches. If any
of you have to do it over again
you will consequently have the
best chance of being born in New
Westminster, and of marrying and
escaping death in Chilliwack.
Whether or not you would prefer
to be dead in Victoria than living
in Chilliivack under the loveless,
lifeless circumstances already
recorded is a mere matter of taste.
You are not as a rule consulted as
to where you would like to be born.
But for a young country I must
admit B. C. does furnish a man
with a really elegant choice of
deaths. From housemaid's knee
or gout, ri-jht up to hanging and
dynamite explosion, you may take
your pick. It says much, however,
for the simple taste of the community, that, wirh such aristocratic and expensive diseases as
exopthalmis goitre, pulmonary
embolism, pyosalpynx, stricture of
the (esophagus, lymphadenoma,
phlegmasia dolehs, and acute epiphysitis to' select from, no less than
46 per cent of the deceased chose
their finish from what is simply
described as "local causes," which
possible only means stomach ache.
In fact the lesser known the disease
the fewer the deaths therefrom, I
can well remember the time when
no one ever thought of dying from
ovaritis or pendicitis, but since the
doctors discovered these complaints
the mortality therefrom has been
Another source of heavy income
to the undertakers was caused by
"organs of circulation." Ten per
cent of the total mortality of B. C.
arose from that cause. There are
no doctors in this town so I cannot
diagnose the complaint accurately.
It appears to have something to do,
however, with a chill resulting from
bank overdrafts.
Sixteen per cent, say one sixth,
of the deceased drew their dying
breath through and on account of
their respiratory organs, which
seems to indicate that respiratory
organs are most dangerous things
to have, and if you can get along
without them so much the better;
however, the deceased were probably politicians, so it does not
Just a few more words of warning.
Twenty-five per cent of all mortality occurred to persons under the
age of three. Therefore when you
are born again try to arrange to
come to life on your fourth birthday and guard carefully against
measles and cholera infantum.
Also warn your nurse against dropping you by accident or treating
you with negligence; one eighth of
the deaths in this country occurred
on account of accidents or negligence. It is equally dangerous to
be born by accident. In adopting
these simple precautions you will
have a chance to fall in with the
suggestion of Rip Van Winkle and
"live long and brosber." But whatever you do, dont get married on
the Chilliwack plan.
I note that only one person died
of "chronic insanity" which I do
most sadly fear, from certain evidence is not a very fatal disease.
And now, having used up half
my space on the statistical side of
the question, I presume I may be
allowed to treat of births, marriages
and deaths in a lighter vein. Albeit the narratives are true.
Joshua Marsden was a Liverpool cotton broker, he was at the
bar of the Central Station refreshment room one winter night taking
his last whiskey and waiting for
the last train. He had taken
several whiskies before and was
getting communicative. A friend
named Foskyke joined him, and he
had been celebrating too. "You're
drunk." says Marsden. "Like
enough," answers Fosdyke. "Why?"
queried Marsden. "Well you see,"
said Fosdyke, "its like this, I went
home an hour earlier than usual
to-night and���and I found a young
man in bed with my wife."
"Holy Moses, cried Marsden,
"and you only married a year.
They're all alike, it isn't a week
since I caught mine at the same
thing; lets have a bottle."

I may relate too, how a certain
American, who later rose to be a

He was living at a popular

which there was a pretty and
clever waitress. He called his
fellow boarders together one night
and said, "Say you fellows, I hear

In Lancashire, the chief mourners
frequently follow the hearse on foot
with bowed head and doffed hat.
The Oldham cemetary is at Green-
acres, and at Bottom 0' th' Moor
the road divides, one fork leading to Lees. A man named
Whitehead had died of dropsy and
his two best friends were following
the hearse on foot. Their conversation will explain itself.
"Its well a week sin' he deed,
Bill, aw dunnot 'owd wi' keepin'
corpees so long." "No-a, Jack,"
said his companion, "an' he deed
0' dropsy at that." At Bottom 0'
th' Moor a slight delay and interruption of traffic occurred. The
mourners, with bowed heads and
hats held in front, waited reverently. Then a movement commenced
and they slowly and blindly followed the rumbling wheels ahead
of them. "Bill," says Jack, after a
while, "Does t' no' think thou can
smell 'im?"
"Yi," replied Bill, "wor' an' wor'
every minit, an' if I wer' no' an old
friend 0' his, aw'd go whoam an'

and groaned more than before.
Bill said he never thought Whitehead would be more offensive dead
than alive and Jack agreed and*
answered philosophically, "Thou
sees it's jowltin' o'er th' road as
does it, it is no' his fault." Just
then a heavier jolt than usual took

proval of the coming and employment of these hordes of heathenB,
by their acts in parliament.
On the whole the only fault 1
have to find with the registrar's report is that it does not contain
statistics as to the consumption
of whisky and the growth of breweries. These are matters which
have a direct bearing on the subject, they are indissolubly connected with it and have heen so from
time immemorial. Cruickshank
and Hogarth bear me out in ibis
and there is not a happy bridegroom, an innocent father or even
a solitary corpse who dares deny it.
Anyhow the price of a Milwaukee
brewery 'ad' on the back page of
tbe Registrar's report ought to pay
for the whole issue.

It is a pitiable sight to see the
militia called out to protect a horde
of the most objectionable foreigners
while doing a work which of right
ought to belong to the native. In
no country in the world, we believe, would it be possible for a
similar scene to be enacted.���Nelson Economist.
Oh, yes; in the United States,
they have been doing it for thirty
years During that thirty years
the republican party has won its
continuous victories by reason of
its cry for protection to American
labor, while the real beneficiaries

employed the lowest grades of foreign pauper labor, and were defended in doing so by the U. S.
army. And Canada is following in
Uncle Sam's footsteps in this respect. While the country is filling
up with Japs and pigtails, the merchants on the coast are reaping the
benefit of protection at the expense
of every consumer, who pays nearly fifty per cent more for what he
consumes, on account of protection;
and yet, the militia is called out to
enable the Japs to drive our white
citizens out of the fisheries; and
both the Dominion and provincial
governments have shown their ap-
In the Railway Committee at
Victoria on the 3rd instant, an
amendment to the Bill incorporating the Vancouver and New Westminster Railway was moved by
Mr. Mclnnes.
This amendment provided that
no person should be employed in
the operation or construction of ihe
railway who could not read the
Act of Incorporation in the European language or whose name was
not on the register of voters or unless he was a Caucasian or an
This amendment was of course
intended primarily to include
Chinese or Japnese from employment on the railway. The amendment was strongly opposed hy Mr.
McPhillips of Victoria and  others.
After a long discussion a vote
was taken and the amendment was
declared carried on the following
division: For���Messrs. Brown,
Curtis, Gilmour, Kidd,Martin, Mclnnes, Oliver, Smith and Stables, 9.
Against���Messrs. Fulton, Garden,
Hunter, McPhillips, Mounce and
Murphy, 7.
It will be noticed that the opposition voted solidly for the exclusion of Chinese and Japanese and
that every supporter of the government on the committee voted in
favor of these people. This vote
is a very instructive one and indicates very clearly who are the
strong opponents of Chinese and
Japanese and who are, in spite of
their protestations to the contrary,
favorable to those undesirable immigrants.
Those interested in the welfare of
native white labor have, by seeking
to secure the estoppel of the importation of cheap laborers from China
and Japan to supplant union labor
ers of this country, got the Dominion and local governments into a fix
not commendable. To relieve the
pressure from this source and continue to do the bidding of their
masters, the great corporations,
they have caused the following to
be published in the form of a press
dispatch: "A dispatch has been
received at the Japanese Legation
from the Japanese Foreign Office
announcing that the Government
of Japan had prohibited for the
present, all immigration of Japanese laborers to the United States
or Canada."
This, for the present, is intended
to let the corporation servants in
our legislative halls escape from the
corner the friends of labor had
driven them into. However, the
government at Victoria exposed its
hand in its vote in the railway
committee on the amendment to
the bill inc��rporating the Vancou
ver and New Westminster railway.
The government vote was solid
against restricting the liberty of
the corporations to employ Japs
and Chinese in construction work.
The votes define the position of
the conservative party of this
province on that question.
Remember that the Chinese are
not enthusiastic people. Their
hearts are not easily fired. They are
not prone to outbursts of emotion.
China moves as the glacier rather
than as the volcano or cyclone.
But she moves. You may defeat
her to-day, yon may defeat her tomorrow; you may bombard her
Taku forts; you may ever land an
army and, marching over the
low, alluvial, fertile lands of China,
spring upon Pekin. What then ?
You have no more gained the
country than by the capture of
Boston you have gained the United
States. It is like macerating the
waves. You may cut and slash and
stab. The billows will swirl up
and roll. It is war upon an im-
placeahle enemy, as if assailing the
air of the clouds.���John Russell

Victoria, Aug. 10.���In the Private Bill Committee on the 6th of
August the Western Telegraph and
Telephone company's bill was further considered.
It was moved by Mr. Smith
Curtis to limit the borrowing power
of the company to the fair cost
price of the company's corporeal
property. The vote for, was
Brown and Curtis, against Clifford,
A. W. Smith and Tatlow.��� Lost.
Mr. Curtis also moved, to add a
clause whereby the government
after the expiration of five years,
upon giving one year's notice, has
the right to purchase all the property arid franchises of the company
at the fair value of its corporeal
property and leases, together with
such bonus (if any) as it may deem
advisable not exceeding 10 per cent
���of such fair value. ThiB provision
Mr. Curtis also moved that the
following clause be inserted: "No
person shall be employed by the
company in the construction, erection and operation of the telephone
or telegraph lines and plant of the
company who cannot read this act
in the European langnageor unless
he is on the last Provincial Voter's
List or is of Caucasian or Indian
A vote was taken, Messrs. Brown
and Curtis voting for it and Messrs.
A. W. Smith and Tatlow against it.
Chairman Helmeken gave his vote
against the motion and it was
declared lost.
In the Railway Committee a
similar provision was moved by
Mr. Mclnnes to be inserted in the
Railway Charter before the committee and a vote was taken, Messrs.
Brown, Curtis, Kidd, Martin, Mclnnes, Oliver, Stables, and E. C.
Smith, for it��� 8; and Messrs. Clifford, Fulton, Garden, McPhillips,
Mounce, Murphey and Rogers,
against it���7.
Chairman Pooley who had previously announced thai the policy
of the government was in opposition to such a provision, then
claimed his privilege under Rule
87 of voting and voted against the
motion, making the vote a tie,
and by Rule 87, tbe motion wa6
declared lost.
As the motion was a iried at the
Chinese and Japanese it is now
quite clear in view of Mr. Pooley's
specific announcement of the policy
of the government that the latter
is going to object to restrictions
upon their employment.

The report for the year 1899 of
G. K. Bodington, Medical Superintendent of the provincial asylum for
the insane at New Westminster reveals some startling facts. It shows
that institution has maintained
six Chinese patients 1 year, three
2 years, one 4 years, one 5 years,
one 9 years, six 10 years, three 11
years, and three 24 years. In other
words, with the fractions of years
in months not reckoned with the
ahove, which amount to 14 years
and five months, this province has
supported one Chinese lunatic 198
years and 5 months. This is indeed a snap for the Mongolian
heathen which he evidently appreciates. Why should not China he
required to support her own incurable lunatics ?
Carrying this investigation a little further, we are brought to a
realising sense of the cost to the
taxpayer imposed by this practice.
The expense per month per patient
is set down at $16.88. Twelve times
198 with the five extra, would give
us 2,381 months. At $16.88 per
month we discover this province
has invested, since 1875, in the support of Chinese lunatics, ihe enormous sum of $40,191.23.
This may have been the proper
policy to pursue, but we doubt it.
The following from the Nelson
Economist is solid common sense���
or horse sense, if you please. It
presents some thoughts prospectors
should carefully consider. Very
much the greater number of them
pass the greater part of their lives
prospecting���bunting and staking
mineral prospects���and in the majority of cases without realizing
anything like a decent livelihood.
By combining their efforts in tin different camps they could develop
their best prospects into mines and
sell or work them at a profit commensurate with the jalior and
money expended on them. This
would be much more satisfactory
than to lie forever prospecting with
no income. Yes, says the prospector, nut we must have machinery
and we have no means to procure
H. Machinery was not the first
means that developed agriculture
to it - ptPbent grc-:tt ptii tjous,but vice
versa���the progressive development
of agriculture hy primitive means
till machinery was obtainable for
its more profitable prosecution.
The Economist says :
"There is ;no branch of business
more capable of co-operation than
mining, yet in no line is the principle applied so seldom. The ordinary prospector will take to the
hills as soon as the season, opens,
and ere its close will have probably
staked off several new claims. These
he will try to dispose of, but he
does not succeed in very many instances, although his record may
entitle him to some exceptionally
rich ground. Too often necessity
compels him to part with a good
property for a mere trifle, and in
such eases it invariably falls into
the hands of some speculator who
holds on pending the opportunity
to sell at a respectable profit. But
assessment work has to be done if, as
is too frequently the case, the holder
does not let his claim run out to be
re-staked by some one else according to pre-arrangement. Not long
ago theie was a demand for undeveloped properties, but.that day
has passed, and the sooner the fact
is realized the better. At present
there is a market for proven properties only. If miners who go prospecting, or those who hold a number of claims, would but co-operate
in developing what might be ma-
tually agreed upon as the most
promising of their holdings, in-
Htead of waiting for capital to come
in and pay some one else to do the
work, the result would be satisfactory to all concerned. Wherever
this plan has been honestly tried
it has proved a success. What it
costs to outfit a prospector for a
season's work would be ample with
co-operation to maintain him during the time he would be engaged
in proving a selected property, besides defraying the other expenses
incidental to the work. Labor i.<
practically the chief capital required in developing a property, or at
least in bringing it to that &tage at
which an investor becomes interested. The co-operative plan was recently adopted on the Triune claim
on Silver Cup Hill in the Lardeau,
with the result that after seven
weeks' work, the little band of
practical men are now shipping
twenty tons of high grade ore.to
the smelter, the profits on which
will pay them handsomely for their
enterprise. We hope the example
thus set will be followed by others,
and that the co-operative system
will be largely adopted in the
' The Cascade public school will

The farmers in the Grand Forks
valley were unfortunate this year���
the spring was late, the summer was
hot and dry, and then along came
Jack Frost prematurely and blackened and blasted their hopes.
We hear that Dan McClaren,of
Carson,Wash., who we believe is interested in some of the rich mineral
showings about Fife, was married
not long since, back in Ontario.
The Grand Forks correspondent
of the Rossland Miner says that
city paid $15,000 for the Columbia
townsite. and tbe local paper states
the price paid at $150,000. To be
sure the discrepancy caused by so
slight a thing as one cipher should
not he allowed to raise the question
of veracity, nevertheless we have a
sneaking idea that one of the statements is false.
