In the Mining Field
Christina lake mining properties
are.rapidly coming to the front,
and wi|l, in the opinion of conservative mining men of experience,
rank well in the list of profitable
mines in Yale district. For some
little time past negotiations have
heen going on for the purchase of a
controlling interest in the Victoria
group of claims,, owned by D. C.
Beach and others, located at English Point. .A strong Spokane
syndicate, represented by P. E.
Starkey, of that city, has at last
obtained a majority interest,, the
deal having been closed this week..
The transaction is for cash, and is
on the basis of $25;O0O for' the
four claims. The interests acquired
are those of Jack O'Brien, R. 0.
Cramer and Jerry SpeHiua'n.*
The property is located on the
lak��% and the four claims are together^ forming a Solid 3000. feet
square; Both the C. & W. railway
and the wagon ro'ad traverse the
property, so that transportation
charges will be light. The claims
are the Victoria, Evening Star,
Copperr Mountain and., Copper
Wondeiv .The Victoria has a magnificent showing, the sulphide ore
from/the 20-foot ledge assaying
$36,127 and $29, respectively, the
values being gold and copper.
Mr. Starkey informed a Record
representative that work would be
started,at once, Mr. Beach being in
charge.' A tunnel will be driven
to strike the vein at a considerable
depth, and Mr. Starkey says be u*
prepared to spend $20,QOO,' iri
development. As many rnCn as
can be worked to advantage will
be put on without delay and the
development pushed.
Mr. Starkey is a mining mart of
experience and has gone into-the
Victoria only after a most careful
examination 'oi the property. He
was one of the original locators of
the famous Ruth mirie in the Slo-,
can, and sold out to good advantage. That property is making its
present owners wealthy.
This transaction means a great
deal for the Christina lake section.
With the utmost faith on the part
of prospectors, they have heretofore
been hampered by lack of capital.
Investors are now taking hold, and
the vest riches of the district will
gradually be shown up.
Burnt Basin.
Thos. G. Elgie, manager of the
St George Development Co., Ltd.,
has been in the city this ' week,
having come down from the Burnt
Basin, where his company has just
begun work on the Pleasures of
Hope claim, one of the earliest
locations in the Basin. Mr. Elgie
is most enthusiastic ahout the outlook for Burnt Basin properties,
and believes the locality will produce some surprises to the outside
world this summer. He says the
ores are not all free milling, but
that there is an abundance of base
ores. He has a force of several
men on his property, and is prepared to spend the season in development work.
Another promising Burnt Basin
group has passed into the hands of
a company thai will, actively work
it this season. This iB the Mystery
group, owned by Chas. Willarson
and Pete Johnson. The property
has been acquired by the Mystery
Gold Mining & Milling Co., Ltd.,
with a capitalof $500,000, in two
million 2ocent shares. The chief
-promoters of the flotation are E.
Ni Ouimette and,J. A. Saucier,, of
Rossland. the same gentleman who
recently stocked the Ennismore,
also in the Burnt Basin. MessrB.
.Johnson arid Willarson have been
prospecting the Mystery to a considerable 'extent, and the property
is generally well spoken of.
; There is still considerable snow
in the Burnt Basin, but the several
outfits already in there are petting
work started in good ^hape.
Round About Caicade.
Frank Oliver,., !expert, of the

A deal is on for the Susie, south
west of town, owned by Harry
Denton and others. Assays give
$42 in gold and copper, the latter
being 19 per cent.
Dave Good has returned from
doing assessment work on the
Roman Eagle, southeast of Cascade, and brought in some good
copper samples;
Parties, are starting out every
day on prospecting trips to the
Similkameen. This week the B.C.
Syndicate store outfitted E. Bryant,
to be gone till September. This
store has also decided to often a
branch in the Burnt Basin, with G.
T. Curtis in charge.
On the Vera Pansy, owned by D.
D. Ferguson and D. A. Darrow,
an extension of the Wigwam, they
also struck solid ore, and are doing
some development work. Fred
Grihi is interested in another claim
adjoining the Wigwam, which he
is opening up and has very good
surface showings.
There is <a good deal of development work going on around Cascade this spring. Geo. Cameron
and K. P. Matheson have run a
tunnel on the Paragon, one and'
one half miles east of this city, to
tap the ledge, which will takeahout
150 feet, more to reach. They are
in now 75 feet.
Capt. E. Kirk Greene and J. F.
Piggott, of Montreal, and C. F.
Clough.of Spokane, stopped Thursday in Casoade. The first two
were in the steamer City of Kingston disaster in Tacoma harbor, and
harely escaped with their lives.
They   are  interested   in Midway
townsite, and numerous mining
properties in the Boundary and
Republic camps.
Frank Bailey is Working with a
crew oil the Wigwam claim; also
due east of the city, where they
struck solid ore, of a low grade,
last week. They are driving a
tunnel on the ledge which iB a contact between a porphyry and diabase. Last fall they got surface
assays which went $25 in gold,
copper and silver. They have run
several cross-cuts on the surface,
and struck good ore in three different places on the claim.,
In the Districts.
i Development is to commence
shortly on the Republic group iri
Smith's camp. Over $10,000 has
already been spent on the claims.
The North Star, Golden Eagle
and Cairgorrri' claims, in Long Lake
camp, have been bonded from
Robert Wood and others by Mc-
intyre & McDonnell.
The Last Chance, in Skylark
camp, has just installed its 60
horse power boiler for hoisting and
pumping. The working shaft will
be sunk to the 150-foot level at
opce, and the force of workmen
increased. The property has two
ledges, carrying average values of
over $100 in gold and silver.
Keremoes, B. C, is coming to the
front as a copper-gold district, with
the Surprise going 21 per cent,
copper and $5 in gold, in a vein
which can be traced for 2,000 feet,
while the Dolphin has a large
ledge of copper gold ore, which
runs as high as 80 per cent, copper
and good gold values.

J. W. Stewart has been to both
Greenwood and Brooklyn this
week, in his capacity of superintendent of construction of the new
Rohson-Peuticton branch of the
C. P. R. To a Record representative he stated that the track was
now laid to the switchback over
the mountain, four miles back of
Brooklyn, some twenty-f.>ur miles
from Robson. In fact the work of
clearing out the slides on the
switchback was now completed and
the track-laying gang was now at
work on that part of the road.
There are six legs on each side of
this switchback,requiring about 11
miles of track.
From the tunnel to Eholt summit the grading is now completed,
with the exception of a couple of
miles of light work near Grand
Forks, which will be done long
before the steel gets to that point.
Bridge building is now an all-
absorbing feature of the work, and
it is going on with redoubled
energy. As an example of speed,
Mr. Stewart states that the trestle
over Pup creek, requiring between
350,000 and 400,000 feet of timber,
was put up in exactly eight days.
In a few days the big bridge over
Porcupine creek will he done. Two
gangs are now at Gladstone on the
bridge work, and the force on the
1000-foot bridge over Kettle river
at Cascade has been increased this
week. Mr. Stewart is still firm in
his belief that the last day of June
will see the track-layers in sight of
Cascade, at the Kettle river.
Work has begun on two of the
proposed branches to the mining
camps, one to Deadwood camp and
the other to Greenwood camp. Just
now little can he done but the
slashing of the right of way, but
active grading will begin shortly.
The Deadwood camp spur of five
miles will he built by the main
firm of contractors, while the
Greenwood camp branch will he
sublet, as usual, It is the intention of the C. P. R. to be ready to
haul ores as soon as the main line
is completed, so no time is likely
to be lost in completing the various
branches intended to be built this
Many rumors have been afloat
for several weeks in regard to the
contract of McLean Rros. at the
3000-foot tunnel, some of which
were to the effect that they would
throw up the work. As a matter
of fact this firm has had a good
deal of hard luck so far on this
tunnel contract, which rumor has
it is at the rate of $47 per foot.
Much soft material was encountered, and lack of water to snpplv
the air compressors was also responsible for much delay. However, the work has never stopped,
and Mr. Stewart savs it will continue steadily till the long bore iB
done. The unavoidable delay in
the tunnel work will not keep back
the completion of the line for traffic
as the switchback will be used
Burns & Jordan were awarded a
contract this week for a piece of
work near Greenwood, and are
establishing a camp there.
McLean Bros, of tunnel fame,
also have a contract on the Northern Pacific extension, near Lewis-
ton, and Sam and Jim McLean are
down there looking after it.
In a few days more Lynch &
Earle, of the Cascade Sawmill Co.,
will have completed their contract
for the timber for the big bridge
east of town.
McLean Bros, are advertising for
men to work in the tunnel at from
$2 25 to $3.00 per day.
Olaf Olson this week broke camp
at the site of the 400-foot tunnel,
which he has just finished a few
miles above Gladstone. Pat Welsh
is now putting the finishing touches
on his work near Niagara.
As fast as the rails are laid on
the new line the telegraph wires in
connection are being strung. The
poles for most of the line are now
lying at Genelle's mill at West
Robson, and will be distributed
and set almost concurrently with
the steel laying. It is therefore
safe to say that in about eight
weeks' time Cascade will have connection with the outside world by
telegraph. Before that time also
the new telephone line from Bossburg should be working to Cascade
and beyond.

Matter ol Interest to all Hotel Keepers of
Cascade and Vicinity.
The new provincial law governing liquor licenses is now in force,
and as it will prove of particular
interest to hotel keepers of Cascade
and vicinity, it may he well to
know that the act applies to all
those portions of the province not
included within any municipality.
These portions of the province will
be divided into " license districts,"
and two commissioners will he
appointed for each district, who
will constitute a Board of License
Commissioners. These officers will
he appointed yearly, and the office
will he an honorary one, with no
remuneration except when special
meetings of the hoard are held.
Regular meetings of the hoard will
he held twice yearly, on the 15th
of June and the 15th of December.
The Act provides for license inspectors and all provincial constables can act in such capacity.
Applications for a license will
have to he made and altfeos sent
to the finance minister before the
15th of May and the 15th of November (as the case may be). Upon
receipt of these the finance minister will issue receipts and instruct
the chief inspector re the applications. The application will have
to be advertised in a local paper.
Provision is made for the amount
of accommodation that must be
provided re the premises to be
licensed, and before any license is
issued the person appjying for the
same will have to enter into a bond
to Her Majesty in the sum of $250
with two good securities, for the
proper.conductof the business.
The Act also provides for the
cancellation of a license, as Sec. 54
" The commissioners shall at any
time cancel any licence upon proof
that the  conditions necessarv t<
the granting of such licence do not
exist, and also incase it be shown
that the licences is not keeping his
premises in accordance with the
provisions of this Act and any
rules and regulations made thereunder."
Sec. 68. " Every hotel-keeper
having a licence to sell liquor, refusing, at a reasonable rate, either
personally or through any one ac;-
ingon his behalf, except for some
valid reason, to supply lodging,
meals or accommodation to travellers, shall, for each offence, be
liable to a penalty of twenty dollars and, in default of payment,
one month's imprisonment.
Keep an eye on the man who

it< crooked and is only making a
protection play for feiir his sins
will be reported in cold type. Men
of brains and good standing always
have a good word for the press, the
power that makes great men

rascal to the level of his conduct.
Of course all fools are exceptions

Within the last week, Mr. S. R.
Almond, mining recorder at the
office at Grand Forks, has stated
that, in consequence of the large
amount of work entailed by reason
of the rapid development of the
Christina lake section, he had
much more labor to perform than
should be given to any one man ;
and further, that he understood
that arrangements were now being
made to open a recording office at
Cascade, which would greatly relieve him and also be a great accommodation to hundreds of mining men who now have the extra
25 miles to travel to reach the
recorder's office.
It is now universally conceded
by those who have looked into the
situation, that Cascade is the
logical point for the location of a
recording office,and that the greatest number of Christina lake mining men will be benefited by such
a move. The minister of mines
should investigate the matter and
make the change suggested at the
earliest possible moment.
& Larson are not philanthropists,
and do not pose as such. Hud I hey
secured supplies elsewhere, the cost
would have been from 20 to 40 per
cent greater.
All through, the argument of the
Tribune can lie easily punctured
with holes like the above. For
instance, the Record knows that
some of the sub-contractors were
Canadians, that supplies were purchased from outside the commissary
by the sub contractors, and that
printed matter was secured in
The next time theTribune scores
the C. P. R. they should try some
other argument, as this one is too
flimsy to be tenable for a moment
by any thinking man.
One of the best daily papers in
the Kootenays is the Nelson Tribune--ably edited, well printed
and newsy. But occasionally, in
its unrelenting warfare against the
C. P. R.���something like that of
Mr. Heinze's paper, the Rossland
Miner���the Tribune departs far
from the truth in order to make a
point. This was so in a recent
editorial on the firm of contractors
(Mann. Foley Bros. & Larson) now
building the Robson-Penticton
branch of theC.P.R.
In the first place, the assertion
was made that they were foreigners. How about Mr. Mann ? Then
follows the statement that " these
contractors do not purchase sup-,
plies in Canada." This also is
absolutely false in every particular.
The contractors do and have purchased nearly all their supplies in
Canada, and have never purchased
elsewhere if the goods could be had
in the Dominion. Over 85 per
cent., according to the figures of
the purchasing agent, were bought
from Canadian merchants. As a
matter of fact, Mann, Foley Bros.
From the superficial examination givt-n to mining properties in
the district known as the Burnt
Basin last year, it was generally
supposed that this was a free milling camp. Free gold was found on
nearly every claim staked, aid
thus the popular belief that it was
generally free milling.
Further exploitation, however,
has shown theexistence of imiuem-e
ledges of base ore on many of the
properties in the Burnt Basin, a
fact which seems to please the mining experts who have recommended
and taken hold of properties in
that locality for development. A
gentleman well qualified to speak,;
recently stated that he believed the
Burnt Baffin would undoubtedly
prove to be one of the richest
mining sections of Southern British
Columbia���and he has been over
it thoroughly from the Rockies to
the Cascades. This opinion is
based largely on the fact, which he
asserts, that base ores abound there
in vast quantities.
Another feature that is now encouraging to no slight extent the
development going on in the Burnt
Basin, is its proximity to the site
of the smelting works to be erected
in Cascade. A switchback could
be run from the railway to the
Basin easily, and the transportation charges would be small. Christina lake properties have been
kept back a good many years by
lack of transportation and smelting
facilities, but the section will soon
he in a position to show its rich
possibilities to the world at the
minimum of expense.
Premier Laurier has definitely
announced, as anticipated, that a
redistribution bill will be presented
to the Dominion parliament at
this session. British Columbia
should have more representatives
in that body. For the year ending
June 30, 1898, this province contributed over $3,000,000 to the
revenues of the Dominion. Surely
we are entitled to liberal treatment
at the hands of a liberal government.
Not a single smelter has been
built this week iu the Kettle river
or Boundary Teek country. Is the
industry dying out ?

The Burnt Basin is steadily

Last Monday the water power of

Trusts are getting to be quite the
correct thing in many lines. The
latest is a peanut trust. The next
is likely to he a cabbage or spud
trust, or perhaps one for manufacturing plug-hats for the South Sea
islanders. There is no telling
where the thing may end.
The comment is almost universal
that tbe Iocs of life and property
occurring at Wardner, Idaho, last
week, from labor troubles, would
not have happened in British Columbia. The laws of the states, as
a rule, are good, bin their enforcement is too often exceedingly lax.
Wholesale arrests are now being
made by U. S. troops at Wardner.
At Vancouver the Deadman's
island tangle has had another knot
tied in it by the Provincial government stepping in and claiming
title as against the federal government or the city of Vancouver.
This places Joe Martin in a tight
place, as he is legal adviser for
both the provincial government
and the mill company trying to
secure a lease of the island. The
question now arises, will Joe try to
ride two horses at once.
The announcement that the
West Kootenay Light and Power
Co., of Bonnington Falls, has

owners hereabouts. Machines have
been purchased and by Novemher
of this year the line will be in
working order. This is another
indication of (he faith that capital
has in the mineral wealth of this
section. The query is, why the
present power company at Cascade
does not pre-empt the field while
it has the opportunity.

If it were not so' important to
every businesv man tin the'; Boundary country that he receive his
mail as promptly as possible, it is
fair to presume that the constant,
and well founded complaints on
account of the poor mail service
would become exceedingly tiresome.
But, it is extremely important to
all business interests. Here is a
sample of where a just "kick"
should come in. Last Tuesday,
evening not a single stage of the
several on the route, run by the
Columbia line, stopped at the Cascade post ollice. Two of them had
Cascade sacks. The first of these
drove hy the post-office at a canter,
passed the customs with the least
possible delay, and was well off for
the Forks before the driver he-
thought himself of the Cascade
sacks. Then meeting an unknown I
wayfarer, he was requested to bring
the mail to Postmaster Cameron.
The second lot of mail thatevening
was left at the stables, where Mr.
Cameron, by dint of searching,
succeeded in finding it the next
This sort of thing is growing exceedingly monotonous, coming in
one way or another so frequently.
When Inspector Dorman was in
Cascade last week the Record man
suggested that if the pay for carrying the mail was increased, as it
should be, it might result in a better service. His reply was to the
effect that the present contractors,
are receiving as much as the service they are giving is worth. This
is one way of whipping the devil
around the stump, hut in the pres
ent case the dear public is the
sufferer. The munificent sum of
$20 per week for carrying the mail
from Bossburg to Grand Forks and
return, is indeed a great inducement���if one does not care about
the truth. An official of the new
stage line asserts that be Was
offered the mail contract, but
declined it with thanks at the present figures. This little fact is
significent of itself.
Christina lake.jn addition to the
mineral possibilities existing in
the rock-ribbed hills, on either side,
is destined to hecoive a popular
summer resort for the people of
the entire Boundary country. Being
some twenty miles in length, with
the best possible facilities for fishing, boating and bathing, it offers
attractions hard to equal in this
part of southern British Columbia.
Already, the proximity of Cascade
to this beautiful shimmering sheet
of water, has been a large factor in
the minds of many to make a
decision to stop in Cascade. Should
the intention of the owners of the
steam yacht, Myrtle B., he carried
o'.ut, of running the lioat down
Christina creek to the town, it
would bring the lake that much
nearer. The chief obstacle now in
the way of doing this is the bridge
erected,across the creek by H. L.r
Moody last fall. -That gentleman
informs the Record that he is willing to allow those interested to
raise the bridge, hut declines to do
bo himself, notwithstanding the
fact that Christina creek has heen
demonstrated to he a navigable
A town almost anywhere in the,

newspaper. The Record is willing
to compare Cascade, in this respect,
with any town in the province. Its
business men are up-to-date and
broadminded in their views, and
believe that a good paper iB a
good thing for a town, and show
their faith hy supporting it. In
Cascade there are but few business
houses of consequence not represented in these columns, and we
believe they will be found there
before long. The Record is working day and night for the town
and the people of the town, and
the kind words that are received
continually by its publishers show
that the work is appreciated.

insane in Spokane ami sent to the^

served to call attention to his
unheard of eccentricities. His

He Went Bear Huntlaf But Brain Toraed
the Tsblee. .
i Last Sunday afternoon Stanley
Mayall, with Mesvrs. Palmer and
Ellis, also of the B. C. Syndicate
store, started on a bear hunt, crossing the river on the new railway
bridge, and going down as far as
; the stttid spit. Here they separated,
Mr. Mayall going farther up the
hill.   Suddenly he was confronted
; by not one but three bears, and,
began to smile with complacency
. at thoughts of the three pelts he
w< uld show as trophies, for he was,
armed with a Colt's magazine rifle.
He killed one and waited till another got within a few paces, to
make assurance doubly sure, when,
horror of horrors, not a cartridge
did he have left in his rifle.
Mr. Mayall has been pretty
much all over the world, among
the jungles of Africa and the wilt]
men of Australia, but' he asserts-^

was coming at him at what seemed
like lightning speed, s'p the re-i
doubtable manager of the English
store stood not on the, order of his,
going, but made up the nearest
tree, leaving his rifle for the bears.
After a while the bears, being
foiled, went away, and, he came
home. <"'���'
Mr. Mayall now has a bearskin
on exhibition, and smiles grimly
when he relates the story of the
bear-man hunt. He states that he
expects to secure the hides of the
other two yet, an4ihue already?
