Ate of Sum of the Secret Societies
Now Agitating China.
Deeper sad More Cogent Reuons Than Political that Caused Revolt
James Cantlle tn London Dally Mall.
We are from time to time reminded of the existence of secret
societies in China by the fact that
their members engage in periodica!
outbursts which often assume fanatical proportions.
Even those who possess hut a
passing acquaintance with the people of China, are familiar with the
names of the "Triad" and the
''Water Lily" societies; but few
who do not actually come in contact with the Chinese are aware
ihat every Chinaman belongs to a
society or guild of some kind.
The majority of these are of a
commercial nature resembling the
trades unions of Europe, but many
exist for purely political purposes.
The famous wide-reaching San-ho-
hoey, or Triad society of the three
united departments of nature���
heaven, earth and man���represents,
or did originally represent, the Freemasonry of China, having for its
professed purpose "mutual aid and
assistance." A political bias has,
however, always appertained to it,
and its suppression haw becrine a
creed of successive governments.
The Lien-hwa, or Water Lily society, has, however, for its declared
object the restoration of the Chinese dynasty. It has no philanthropic cloak, but all who hold to
its tenets and join its ranks are the
sworn enemies of the present Man-
chu dynatsy. They cherish the
known descendants of the Ming
emporers much as the Jacobites did
the Stuarts, and only await an opportunity to place the present representative of the Chinese or Ming
sovereigns once more on the throne.
Many other societies with more or
less declared political aims, exist,
a nd one of these, the "Boxers," is
at present making its presence felt.
It is only within the last few
months that this society has found
itself strong enough to raise the
standard of revolt and to attempt
to attain its aim and object, namely to uproot the Tartar or Manchu
dynasty now misruling China.
Foreigners of all nations also are
object* of their antipathy, and
"China for Chinese" is their watchword. The name "Boxers" is, of
course, an English interpretation of
their title, and their Chinese name
has not yet reached us. Boxing
and gymnastic associations have
existed from time immemorial in
China, and from the fact that the
present rebels possess no arms of
any kind, except what they can
steal or "commandeer" from the
Manchu soldiers with whom they
come in contact, would seem to
justify the title they aie popularly
known by. Every successful invasion of China���and there have
been many���has advanced through
the very country the Boxers are
now raiding. It is through the
province of Shansi, in the extreme
northwest, that the Tartar hordes
first found their way into China,
and now the Boxers are advancing
along the same path.
There may be deeper and more
cogent reasons, reasons other than
political, which have determined
the people of this district rising in
revolt. The northwest of China is
gradually but surely becoming a
desert. The uncontrolable water of
the Hoang-Ho, the Yellow river,
is with persistent regularity overflowing its banks, devastating the
country, and leaving behind a deposit of sand carried down from
the Mongolian deserts.
The inevitable consequence is
that the whole country iB becoming
desiccated, and a previously fertile
country is now almost treeless and
verdureless. The desert is almost
within sight of the walls of Pekin,
and the district around it will ultimately be enveloped by the sand
storms of the encroaching desert.
It frequently occurs that rebellion
is ascribed to political exigences,
when the real reason is to be found
in the want of food.
The Boxers, as a political faction,
are but one of the many revolutionary bodies that have come into existence owing to the chaos into
which the Chinese government has
fallen. It differs from the association to which Kong-Yu-Wai and
Sun-Yet-Sen belong, inasmuch as
these reformers wish to introduce a
monarchical or republican form of
government based on European
principles. Sun-Yet-Sen's mission
to this country was to try and induce the British to allow his party
to work out their own salvation,
which he believed could be done if
the British assistance would not lie
afforded to the present government
as happened during the Taiping
The Young China party dread
another "Chinese Gordon" being
sent to aid the Manchu, whereby
they declare the progress of Chii.a
was thrown back half a century.

A Mountain of Green Marble 500 Feet High
And Unknown Depth
A Strong Company Organized to Develop the New
Discovery���Cascade to Be Made the Base of
Operations and Shipping Point.
Last week a party of half a dozen
men prominently interested iu the
marble trade were on Deep creek
examining and planning the devel-
ment of a great enterprise in the
line of marble quarrying.
The new discovery, says the
Spokesman-Review, is located in
the extreme northwest corner of
Stevens county, on Kettle river, opposite Baulne's ranch, and within
half a mile of the international
boundary line.
In the party of visitors were C.
S. Nims of Harbor Beach, Mich ,
C. E. Mitchell of Spokane, T. H.
Greenway of Valley, Wash., who
are respectively, president, general
manager and superintendent of the
United States Marble Company of
Valley. Accompanying them were
Charles Adams, a marble expert
from St. Paul; T. R. Tate, engineer
for the United States Marble Co.,
and ex-County Treasurer George
Mudgett of Spokane.
To a reporter Mr. Mitchell said :
'I stood upon the summit of a
bluff of solid green marble 500 feet
high, and for 1,500 feet to the rear
and the same distance on either
side the entire mass was one solid
body of splendid green. We had
men with us who have made marble quarries a study, and it was
their unanimous verdict that this
deposit of green is by far the largest ever discovered.
"The property comprises the summit of a high ridge, sloping on one
side to Deep creek, and on the other
to the Kettle river. Three of the
purveys of the Kettle River Valley
railway cross the lines of the group,
and a surveying party was on Deep
creek last week heading toward
Cascade City with a survey for an
electric line to connect the Spokane
Falls & Northern with the Boundary country,
''There is a body of marble covering eighty acres, without an ounce
of cap rock covering it. The ridge
is divided into several hog-backs,
so that a dozen quarries can be
opened without interfering with one
another, and more than a thousand
men could be put to work there,
every one in green marble.
"Starting at the shaft-house of
the Nantucket mine, where a shaft
has been sunk with the green marble as a footwall, one may walk
over 2,000 feet along the ridge, always on green marble, until he
comes to another shaft, flunk on the
farther side, with the green marble
still the foot-wall, proving the great
body of stone to be a conical eruptive mass with big end down.
"The group comprises four claims,
and these are owned by three of the
principal officers of the United
States Marble company, but are not
the property of the latter corporation. The claims were located by
J. M. Smith and T. H. Greenway
in the autumn of 1898, and one assessment has been done, but tbe
nature and extent of the deposit
was not known to the owners until
this inspection was made. A force
is to he put to work at once on development.
"The material is the darkest
green yet found in Stevens county.
There is remarkable uniformity in-
the whole mass, which is all a deep
green, like the famous Gal way quarries of Ireland. One bluff shows
bright streakings of golden yellow,
and another carries splaihings of
black. But the ground work of it'
all is a deep, dark, rich green. Some
jewelers have called samples of this
jade stone. It is probably a serpentine, but is of a different nature
from the serpentines near Valley,
being harder and of a darker tint.
It is a stone which can be used in
connection with the lighter greens-
of Valley quarries to fill any demand for any kind of green wanted
anywhere in the world. The two
properties are practically under the-
same control. The opening of this
will add materially to the mining
output of the county.
"The property is within a mile
and a half of the Canadian Pacific
railway. A mile of wagon road and
a bridge across Kettle river will put
it within easy access of the Canadian line of railway. It is within
two and a half miles of the Cascade
electric power plant, which is being
equipped to furnish power to mills
with an expenditure of over $500,-
000. The claims are watered by a
never-failing stream; and a waterfall in Deep creek at the foot of the
bluff which can be utilised to develop abundant power. If ideal
conditions had been desired and
planned they could not have been
better than the conditions, natural
nnd of human making, which surround this newest of Stevens county's marble properties."
Samples of the stone from the
new claims will be polished at the
United States company's mill and
will be on exhibition in Spokane
within a few days. THE   CASCADE   RECORD

June 30, 1900
Up to now, I have strictly avoid-'
ed saying anything about the Mar-
tin-McInnes debacle or using that
awful shibboleth "I told you so",
and have carefully refrained from
poking any fun at our dearly be
loved editor on account of his terrible lapse in the pitfalls of political
prophecy, but I can't and won't
refrain from asking the average
Curtis supporter if he recognises
just where his voting has landed
us? It means this that the biggest
and most important constituency
off the const, a constituency that
ought to have 3 members instead
of 1, will be represented by a gentleman who "sitteth in the seat of
the scornful" or in other words has
to pile his tile with those of the opposition, and whose voice on our
behalf on certain measures will,
consequently be merely as that of
"sounding brass or a tinkling cymbal." And we expected and we
needed and we deserve something
vastly different.
And after all, Mr. Editor, you
were not nearly so badly in error
as was the Great Martin faction itself. For some warped reason or
other, the chairman of the late government party kept me daily posted with fantastic bulletins which
make wondrous good reading now
it is all over. For one thing he informed me, that the defunct government would have at least 25
seats in the new house,���it got 8,
then again, after offering copious
advice and issuing various instructions he kindly asked me to state
my requirements.   But I didn't;
"Money I Not much ! I
Tbat ain't my kind,
I ain't no such"
One thing at least the Hon. Mr.
Smith Curtis achieved whilst
"cloaked in brief authority," and
that was the getting of his name
on the fly leaf of one of the most
interesting Minister of Mines reports that has been issued for some
' 'How can man die better
Than by facing (earful odds,
For the ashes of his fathers,
And the temples of his gods ?"
According to various scientists
and theorists the odds are fearful
enough any how. Here are some
of them, take your choice. I am
quoting mainly from a compilation
by Herbert C. Fyfe. According to
Lord Kelvin, there isn't going to be
oxygen enough to last, consequently everyone will be suffocated���
worse than sitting at the theatre
between two fat women. Professor
Bees, following suit, discourses
learnedly on "air failure," in
which case I suppose that Trusts
will corral the available supply,
and deal it out at so much per
chunk, all same our friend  the ice
man. Then where will Chris Foley be ?
Mr. Nikola Tesla thinks if we
don't look out we'll set light to the
atmosphere by using too much electricity; so we'd better stick to coal
oil in Cascade.
Mr. H. G. Wells, supported to
some extent by the late Prof. Darwin, contends that the sun's heat iB
getting "smaller by degrees and
beautifully less" each year, and
l.imeby we'll all be snowed under
worse than the Martin party at the
last election. However its 193 in
the shade today and I'm not worrying much myself.
Professor Ealbsays, on the other
hand, what he's afraid of, is that
Biela's comet will some day come
into us stem on, and knock the
natal stuffing out of the wicked
world; in which case if you can't
fly, "those of you who cannot swim
had better get out of the way."
Then Mr. Wells, who's on in this
act anyhow, has it not her shot at it
and suggests that we'll all get eaten
up by ants, or perhaps six-foot
crabs; if he'd said eighteen inch
mosquitoes now, we might have believed him. F'rinstuns, I just had
to sit down to fight them in Laval-
ley's swamp the other Sunday, and
then when I got up to go away,
hang'd if a rear guard hadn't ambushed two quarts of fresh gathered
huckleberries and eaten the blooming lot.
Other terrorists talk of microbes
and amphibious monsters and rabbits just as if taxgatherers and old
maids and trolly cars wer'n't fatal
Another gentleman argues that
the vital fluid of the terrestrial
globe is oil, and that if Rockefeller
doesn't soon let up taking such big
doses, the crust will crack and a
chaotic capsize be created, which
somehow bars lamps as well as
electric lights, and suggests candles
���as embodying more profit to the
Then.Sir William Crookes strongly contends that the end will result
from scarcity of food, to be more
precise flour food. Sir William is a
statistician, and can prove it hy
figures, of course he could prove the
opposite just as easily by the same
means, because figures never lie.
It's just going to take 31 years, according to Crookes. In 1871 there
were 371,000,000 bread eaters, and
in 1931 there will be 746,500.000,
nnd the world will be like a boarding school, won't have "enough to
go round." Well, that doesn't scare
me either, I don't eat bread myself,
I always take toast.
M. de Lapparent, who is a French
savant by the way, and consequently entitled to careful consideration,
says that why there won't be any
world left soon, is because the rivers and seas will wash all the land
away, so that some of you had
better wade in before it is too late
and make love to Mrs. Langtry in
order to secure a berth in the
"White Ladye."
On the other hand another seer
of undoubted ability says we'll all
perish from lack of water; but that's
the worst of these scientist; they're
too one-legged in their ideas; what's
the matter with drinking beer ?
General Brialmont, who is a
"brave Beige," and lives in Brussels,
where there are more pretty girls
to the acre than anywhere on earth,
says what's troubling him is, that
population is increasing so quickly
that pretty soon the boxes and stalls
will be all taken, the dress-circle
jammed, the pits suffocating, the
gallery sitting on its sweethearts'
knees, with standing-room only left
for the remainder, and the supply
of pea-nuts and chewing-gum
plumb exhausted.
Instead of which some people
simply go and get drunk and fall
down and break their necks, and
"jes nacherally die," which is a disgusting waste of opportunity.
Is there then no chance? Of
course there is. Scientists and
savants are built tbat way; if one
of them finds he can't go one better, he just sets to work to prove
the other idiot doesn't know what
he's jabbering about, which is always quite easy.
The chance? "It is the chemist,"
says Sir William Crookes, "who
must come to the rescue of the
threatened communities," and M.
Berthelot, the great French chemist
supports him, in fact, believes himself the appointed Saviour. Under
which circumstances I want to ask
why on earth Doc Schaich closed
down the drug store? Which reminds me nf a well known Trail
gentleman, who, whenever a certain Rossland bank manager contrives to get to the Springs for a
day or two's much needed and well
earned rest, systematically lodges
the complaint, "Who on earth is
going to look after my overdraft
while you are away?"
One of the English magazines
contains an interesting, and, of
course, strictly true account of the
honeymoon spent by a Britisher
and his wife, (accompanied by a
guide, a cook and several horses,)
hunting grizzlies on the plateau
between the White yalley and the
Kettle river. Now if ever I spend
a honeymoon hunting grizzlies,
I'll leave the lady at home, but
that isn't the point. This gentleman
proved himself a sporting phenomenon. He bagged grizzlies in coveys,
and what's more bagged them
in the summer time, "in fine fur.*
I generally believe all I hear, and
more than half of what I see, but
this seems "coming it" a bit too
strong. I wasn't very suspicious
until I ran across one of the photos
wherein the great shikarri had his
rifle pointed plumb into the cook's
ear hole. It must have been the
cook, bees use the guide would have
killed him on the spot for taking
such a liberty.
Now people who hold rifles like
that, don't bag grizzlies in coveys,
even on the Kettle river. I think
it was ground hogs he must have
And anyhow he didn't have half
as exciting a honeymoon as a dear
friend of mine had. He was a
valued instrument of the British
Secret Service Fund, and I regret to
say I "assisted," as they say in
France, at his wedding. Amy Belknap was one of the kind that Augustus ought to have had sense-
enough to let alone. They went to
Monte Carlo for their honeymoon,
and five days later, at an hour's
notice, Augustus was ordered off to-
Moscow on a matter of European
importance and British honor. At
that time his best way was by
steamer via Marseille and Sevastopol. The vessel was wrecked in a
fog near Balaklava, twelve people-
were drowned and ten frozen to-
death. Augustus escaped, but lost
everything but his passport. Continuing his journey he got into a
railway smash, and fourteen more
people were killed. Then again he
proceeded and finally accomplished
his mission with honor and ability,
and returned to join his beauteous
bride. He found a note instead.
"Dear Augustus���Things wsre getting too dull; I've gone to Cairo to-
finish our honeymoon with Count
Montmartre. Your loving but neglected Amy. P.'S. I'll come back,
if you want me to."

brains out with a rifle, about 11
o'clock last Sunday morning, at
the family residence one and one-
half miles from town, says the
Grand Forks Miner. The deed had
been carefully planned, every detail being worked out, and was not
the result of any sudden impulse.
She had been suffering for years
with epilectic fits, and evidently
gave up all hope of being relieved,
and decided to take the matter in
her own hands and put an end to
her suffering. She had left a note
saying that she was tired of suffering and that she believed it was
best for all concerned for her to put
an end tn her existence, and asking
her mother to look after her baby,
a bright little child about four
months of age.

Druggists and Stationers.
The ladies decided to have a lawn social;
Whoever could sing, read or play was invited
To help with the program, so that with the ice-cream,
And soft drinks the patrons might all be delighted.
"To grace the occasion," the bachelors said,
"Let's invite the young ladies from Gladstone to come;
"In 'treating' them well with our own money and wit,
"We shall swell the proceeds for our little church home."
Alas 1 for their hopes, and the funds, for not clear
Was the way at this time.   "We must wait till the next,"
Sadly thought the young men.   But they bargained without
Their good schoolmaster's wit; for he was by this vexed.
Like Kitchener, "Bobs," and all men of renown,
The schoolmaster planned, and persisted, and won.
The minister "wired" for the ladies to come,
And the plans for the social were finished and done.
0, Kelman, he's long, and he's good as he's tall,
And Ritchie's good looking, and "spoke for," as well;

When he went to the station', escorted them over���
Bought ice-cream and cake���lemonade without stint.
When he read his scotch piece and presided so well,
We subsided unwillingly, taking the hint.
The ice-cream and lemonade booths were well served;
And we bought, and we ate, as the program was given.
We should have been happy, and would, but for him,
For he strove to be pleasing as he never had striven.
While "Grannie" sang sweetly, while Ritchie declaimed,
While Ferguson thought,��� while Miss Darrow played well;
While Dunbar sang "proodly the sangs o' his land,"
And "Pa" Stocker sang love longs, can anyone tell
What the schoolmaster planned ? What he said ? What he did ?
While the minister "fiddled," while Jennie MacRae
Recited so nicely, while Mrs. Brown read,
And sang, too���can anyone tell ? What's that ?  "Aye I
"While Miss Cameron, Mrs. MacDonald, and, too,
"Mesdames Wolverton, Stocker, MacRae and the others
"Were serving the good things, and were treated as well,
"You say Simpson's eyes spoke love that was not a brother's ?"
"While Editor Turner read well of the love
"Of Damon and Pythias," you say, "that just then

"That the state he found his true heart in, just then,
"Was far more delightsome ?"   But what did he say,
As he bent o'er his music-box���telling its ways ?
Or treating the ladies���Mrs, Rochussen's march

Quite outshone him, by "lunching" the ladies and friends.
Perhaps I may tell of this luncheon again;

legislature for Northeast Kootenay

Hon. J. D. Prentice, an Englishman by birth, sat for East Lillooet

The Cassiar Ballotbox Held by Express Co.
Spokane Falls & Northern Railway Company
I Change of Time.
Anyone can have the Cassiar ballot box by the payment of $10 express charges. It is full of ballots
and duly sealed. On its bottom is
written, "'Warnock Cannery, Rivers
Inlet," and on a tag attached to the
box is this inscription: "J. G. Garvey, Returning Oflicer,Cassiar District, Vancouver, B. C." The box
was taken to Victoria on the steamer Queen City, and handed to the
purser of the Tees and it thus found
'its way to Vancouver. Messrs.
Evans, Coleman & Evans took
charge of it as agents for the C. P. |
N. Co., and, not being able to find !
any claimant, took it to the express office. The express office refused to handle it, and returned it
to Evans, Coleman & Evans, who
wrote a post-card to J. G. Garvey,
Cassiar district, in the hope that
that gentleman would pay the $10
charges and whatever wharfage
there was on the box, and thus relieve them of their serious obligation
���of taking care of a government ballot box. No answer was received
to the card, The Cassiar election,
from last reports is somewhat close,
.���and if there was a recount the authorities would be looking very
anxiously for that run-away ballot
The deputy returning officer, it
appears, at the Warnock cannery,
had been instructed to send the box
-to the proper government department at Victoria, but instead addressed it lo Mr. Garvey, the returning officer of the district, and
���further complicated matters by
���naming Vancouver instead of Victoria as the place of its destination,
and the Government must pay $10
charges to get possession of the
wandering Martin-killers.

[Second Avenue, Cascade City, B. C.
A large picnic was held recently
at the Sand Banks, Bloomfield, Ont.,
under the auspices of the Patrons
of Industry, this organization having still a very strong following
in Prince Edward county. About
4,000 people were present, and a
large audience assembled to hear
the addresses delivered during the
afternoon. John W. Hyll, West
Lake, was chairman. Rev. Dr.
Douglass, M. P., Assiniboia, was
the first speaker, and deprecated extreme party ism. Seventy lawyers
are members of the House of Commons, and the producing clases
should be better represented. The
Dominion government was condemned for bribing foreigners to
emigrate to Canada instead of righting conditions here.
Frank Oliver, M. P., Alberta, and
W. H. Pettet, M. P., Prince Edward, followed. J.�� H. Haycock,
ex-M, P., pointed, out that this
country's prosperity was not owing
to, but in spite of, the government.
Corruption in both old parties was
condemned, as was the increase in
expenditure from $37,000,000 to
$50,000,000 by the Laurier govern-
John A. Sprague, ex-M. P., and
Edgar Mnrtin followed. G. Weston Wrigley, Toronto,urged that the
time had arrived for the establishment of an independent organization on a broad basis. The people
should rule instead of being ruled.
Canada has a government by the
parties of the corporations, and for
the spoils, but if the senate wus
abolished and the initiative and
referendum introduced, Canada
could have government ownership
of railroads instead of railioad
ownership of governments.
A. McFaul, County Patron President, seconded the resolution given
below, it being introduced by Mr.
Wrigley. The Patron organization
might be almost extinct, but the
independent spirit would never die.
This resolution passed unanimously :
"Whereas, A large and ever increasing number- of the citizens of
Canada are greitly dissatisfied with
the misgovernment of the two old
parties, in both federal and provincial legislatures, and
"Whereas, It is useless to hope
either Conservative-Liberal or Liberal-Conservative parties will institute a government in the people's
interests, they being largely influenced by the corporation agents,
who contribute largely to election
funds; therefore, be it
"Resolved, That it is advisable
that the wealth-producers in both
farm and factory join with all
others dissatisfied with present political conditions in organizing independent political leagues throughout the country, and
"Resolved, Further, that this
meeting authorizes the issuing of a
call for a provincial convention of
independents in Toronto during the
coming Industrial Fair, and a committee composed of Geo. Wrigley,
editor of Citizen and Country, Toronto; W. T. Smith, editor Weekly
Sun, Toronto; Duncan Marshall,
Markdale; R. N.Brice, St.Thomas;
Lockie Wilson, President Patrons
of Industry, Alexandria; J. A.
Flett, Vice-President Dominion Labor Congress, Hamilton; Portland
Benson, Picton; P. M. Drayer, Ottawa, and Leighton McCarthy, M.
P., Toronto, be instructed to issue a
call and complete arrangements for
the holding of the convention." 8
