SMELTER TALKAT CURLEW
The Drummers' Company Contemplate
Building One at that Place
HAVE RICH NINES NEAR THE BOUNDARY
Tons of Ore on the llu.nps Ready lo be
dipped to Orand Forks-300,000 Shares
Said to Eastern Cafl.alists.
One of the results of an important
mining deal which has just been
negotiated by Thomas Maloney,
secretary of tlie Drummers' Development Compiuy, will be the
erection of a smelter at Curlew,
where the company's properties are
located. This action was decided
upon at a meeting of the directors
��� of the company at which the sale
of stock by Mr. Maloney was confirmed, says the Spokesman-Review.
The deal which has made it possible for tbe company to develop
its property on a large scale and to
establish the smelter was consummated at Minneapolis last week,
when Mr. Maloney disposed of
300,000 shares of the treasury stock
to eastern capitalists at 10 cents
per share, which at once adds $30,-
000 to the working capital of the
company.
Durimg the past few months
there have been nuniorous reports
of new strikes in the Curlew district, and considerable attention
has been attracted to  that section.
The Drummers' Development
Company, has a group of eight
claims, on two of which a large
amount of work lias been done.
The company was formed some
time ago hy a party of 10 eastern
drummers, who travel through the
west, and the stock has been in demand from the start, considerable of it having heen void
to several of Ihe slate officials! at
Olympia. The ledjje has heen
opened on the surface by crosscuts
for a dislance of 1400 feetf and
shows an average widtli of 30 feet
In addition to this a double compartment shaft hits heen sunk, from
which a drift has been made 60
feet in the ledge, and a winze is
now being sunk on the foot wall.
There are now many tons of good
shipping ore on the dump awaiting
the completion of the Grand Forks
smelter, to which shipment will be
made till the new smelter at Curlew is put in.
Galena from Burnt Basin.
lau claim in Burnt Basin, says the
Rossland Record, lie writes thut
the sample comes from a depth of
45 feet in the shaft, which is down
50 feet, the whole width of it in just
such ore. The shaft is six feet
square. He is now crosscut ting to
define the width of tbe ledge, which
is 40 feet on the surface. The indications are that the ore will
change to gold and copper.

A HUMAN ARM FOUND.
LARGE BODY OF RICH ORE
Mike Schick has received a sample of solid galena ore from B. Belgrove, who is at work on the Har-
The New Miuister of Mines and Works Active.
One of the first official acts of
Hon. Smith Curtis on donning his
official regalia was to annul some
of the harmful actions of the former
minister relative to assessment work
on mineral claims hy the issue of
the following order:
" Whereas, There is doubt as to
tho intent of section 5, mineral act
amendment act, 1868, and of section 36, as amended, of the mineral
act, regarding the record of assessment work and the payment of
money, together amounting to the
value of $500, and the time or times
when such records may be made
before a certificate of improvement
for a mineral claim may he issued:
On the recommendation of the minister of mines, the lieutenant-governor, by the advice of his executive council, and under the provisions of section 143 of the mineral
act, has been pleased to order the
said sections 5 and 36 to be interpreted so as to permit a free miner
who has applied by affidavit for a
certificate of improvements, to receive and record a certificate or certificates of work for all or any
assessment work done by him or
his predecessor in title since the
recording of the mineral claim in
excess of the value for which hehasj
��� already obtained certificates of work,
provided that at the time of applying for such additional certificaate,
such claim is still in good standing:
and has not lapsed or.otherwise become invalid, and provided that in
this particular case above referred
to, the affidavit required shall state
the totab amount of work done in
each year since the dale of record
of the mineral claim and the value
thereof, for each year of such years;
also the value of the work as well
as the years for which be has already received and recorded a cer-
tificule'of work."
Officially inspected.
On Tuesday last a party of officials of tbe C. P. R. company passed up the road in a special car. The
fir*t of the month the Columbia &
Western branch was transferred by
the construction department to the
operating department and the in-
Supposed to Belong to the Body of the Late
William Price.
At the time of tbe unfortunate
accident when William (or Henry)
Pi'ce wa li own t'> atoms by an
explosion of overheated dynamite,
we were told that the different parts
of his body which was scattered in
fragments over considerable ground,
had all been found. Wednesday
a man's arm was found not a great
distance from the place of the recent, accident referred to, and was
said to belong to Price's body. We
ate further informed that one leg
is still missing.
So Far a Military Picnic.
E. Parkes, of Nelson, received a letter from his hrother
Frank who i= with Strathcoiia's
Horse, says the Miner. The letter
says : " We got our uniformsserv-
od out two days ago. It is a splendid outfit���two suits of kahki, two
blue serge suits, one cloak, one pair
long rid ing boots and spurs, blanket,'
razor, brushes and everything one
wants. The Nelson troops, so the
papers say here, are the best drill-
eiCmen in the outfit. We get splendid grub and weall like our officers.
They are a nice lot of fellows. We
are going to he armed with Lee-j
Metford rifles, and a brace of Colt's
44. We are soldiers in earnest now.
I have just come off 12 hours night
picket duty, with the thermometer
20 degrees below zero. We get
coffee and grub in the guard house
when we want it. Too bad about
the Canadians gettingeo many men
killed. I hope we will get a chance
at revenge."
H. H. BOWDEN, THE EMBEZZLER,
Arrested in Spokane While  Engaged at a
Faro Table.
H. H. Bowdenthe absconding assistant paymaster of the Halls Mining company of Nelson, was arrested in Spokane Tuesday night
last by a local officer. He was
"bucking the tiger" in one of the
numerous gambling dens of that
city at the time. He is charged with
appropriating about $2,700 of his
employer's money, $1,400 of it being found on his person at the time
arrest was made.
Uncovered in the Phoenix Mine on Huckleberry Mountain.
THE PONTIFEX MINING COMPANY ASTIR
The Company will Work a Night and Day
Shift in tbe Phoenix Till the Ore Vein has
been Crosscut, which Is of Great Width.
Parties interested in the Pontifex
group of mines on Huckleheny
mountain have known for some
that work which has been steadily
prosecuted all winter on the claim
known as the Phoenix, has been in
a great body of rich ore.
Assays recently made show that
the average values run up to something over $30 per ton.
The management propose now to
continue the development work with
an increased force till the mine has
been exploited to the fullest extent.
The lead at the 84-foot level is over
30 feet wide, and it is expected it
will be necessary to drive at least
60 feet more to cut through it. The
main shaft is down 91 feet.,
Mr. R.H. Hammill the engineer
in charge of the works, was in town
Wednesday looking for miners, the
company having decided to double
the working force by putting on a
night shift.
Burnt Basin Mines.
Mr. Thompson, foreman of the
Mystery, which is in Burnt Basin,
says that the tunnel was extended
20 feet during February and is now
in for 147 feet. The ground is becoming heavily mineralized, and it
is thought tbe ledge will soon be
met.
Mr. John Sinclair, foreman of
the Avon, writes from Burnt Basin
to E. N. Ouimette, the secretary of
the company., that the tunnel was
lengthened 25 feet in February.
The ground is hardening, and there
are other signs which tend to show
that the ledge is not far away, and
Mr Sinclair expects lo meet it
soon. 	
A Colcohester man at Naaupoort
writes: "We made a grand capture yesterday. A case, supposed
to contain a piano, was opened and
found to contain a lovely machine
gun. It was addressed to a lady
in the Orange Free State. Of
course, we are going to play it ourselves."

LOCAL BREVITIES.
C. H. Thomas returned yesterday
from a week's visit in Spokane.
Mr. Robin Redbreast arrived in
Cascade from the south this morning. He's the same pretty bird,
looking as young and fresh as ever.
He has come to spend the summer
with us.
A land slide on the Spokane
Falls & Northern, near Northport,
at a point called Seven Devils, delayed American mails destined for
the Boundary country several days
this week.
The local stores are doing a good
business with the mining companies
which make this their trading
post. In the Dominion Supply
company's store we noticed laBt
night a stack of goods billed for
the Victoria company on Christina
lake, 1200 pounds in all, which will
be packed in by Sam Handy.
Sale of tbe Granite and Banner.
On Wednesday, Feb. 28, Sheriff
Pemberton offered for sale by public auction the Granite and Banner
mineral claims and the stamp mill
plant erected thereon. Bidding for
the plant and machinery did not
reach the reserve figures, so these
were not sold. Mr. J. Fraser
Campbell of Similkameen was the
highest bidder for the claims, which,
with more than a ton of track iron
and the machinery-houtle containing some 9000 feet of lumber, were
knocked down to him for $300.
There are on the claims two shafts
one 40 feet and the other 65 feet in
depth.     	
Mr. Martin's Government.
Having found Messrs. Yates and
Curtis not fit material, Mr. Joseph
Martin has decided to constitute
-his government as follows:
Provincial secretary, Mr. Joseph
Martin.
Attorney general, Monsieur Joseph Martineau, author of "The
Moral Aspects of Champerty."
Chief commissioner of lands and
works, Signor Giuseppe Martino.
Minister of mines, Senor Don
Jose Martino de Vancouvero e Win-
nipeggo.
President of the council, Herr
Professor Joseph Martinchen, of
the chair of political mendacity, of
the University of Dead man's
Island.���Rossland Record.
The Mansion House Fund is now
above $150,000.
A NIOHT SHIFT PUT ON.
Putbing Work on the Water Power Contract.
The roar of the reports caused by
the blasting in the work of cleaning
the way for the water conduit for
the electric power house, the revi-
brations of which constantly roll
up and down neighboring canyons,
continues all night now. A night
shift has been put on by Mr. Olaf
Olson, who has the tunnel contract,
and the undertaking is being prosecuted with all possible haste. Altogether about 100 men are now
employed on the works.
The Strathcona Horse is scheduled to sail from Halifax March
15th.
When Mining Recorder Wright
of Nelson went to collect rent from
one of his tenants the other day,
he discovered that the renter and
house had dissappeared, and neither
can be found.
The Toronto Telegram puts the
argument now going on in the
press relative to party lines in a
nut shell. It says, "non-partisans
represent interests, while parties
represent ideas."   Correct.
It is announced that no elections
can be held till about the first of
June, for the reason that the voters
lists cannot be revised in time to
fix the date much earlier.
The past week in South Africa has
been one of uninterrupted British
successes. The Boer invaders have
nearly all been taken prisoners or
driven from British territory. The
soldiers of Oom Paul now find their
own homes need defending against
an irresistible force, and their chief
aim is to accomplish a successful
retreat.
The militia general regulations
relating to the pensions and allowances applicable to Canadian
miltiamen now on service in South
Africa are as follows: If an officer
loses an eye or a limb he receives a
year's pay as a gratuity and an
annual allowance ranging from
$340 for a lieutenant to $1460 for a
lieutenant-colonel. To sergeants
and men discharged on account of
wounds, pensions of 12 to 60 cents
per day for privates and 24 to 95
per diem for sergeants. A lieutenant's widow will receive $289 per
year and his children $78 each if
he is killed in action, or $292 and
$60 per year if he dies from exposure. Sergeants' and men's widows
will receive $1.21 to $1.58 per week
and their children 36 to 48 cents a
week each.

GIVE THE DEVIL HIS DUE.
It is fairly within the province of
journalism to offer criticisms in a
fair and open manner on all matters of a public nature. But there
is no justice in distortion of facts,
nor, in the long run, gain to he attained in misrepresentation and the
building up of false impressions for
present effect. That the C. P.
R. has heretofore charged exorbitant freight and passenger rates on
its Columbia & Western branch,
is hardly susceptible of disproof.
On the first of this month, however,
a new tariff was put in operation
by which a substantial reduction,
amouting to from 25 to 35 per cent,
has been effected. This is an action on the part of the railway authorities worthy of commendation,
and which will result in great benefit to the Boundary country. It
may be, and is quite possible, the
company could have 6tood a further
reduction. In all probability, when
the new machinery has been adjusted to avoid unnecessary friction
and the expense of handling tbe
road reduced to the minimum, additional relief to the business men
along the line and the traveling
public generally will be forthcoming.
Those papers in the Boundary
which refuse to recognize the reductions referred to as of a substantial
character, show a disposition to be
unfair.
BOUNDARY REPRESENTATIVE.
The Rossland papers, judging
from their editorial expression, appear to think they are entitled to
name the Boundary representative.
They also assume that the Boundary, or South Yale district, would
take kindly to any person reeking
the nomination regardless of the
place of his residence or business
interests.
This is an unwarranted assumption on the part of the Rosuland
publications, and they may as well
be informed of the fact at once.
South Yale proposes to select its
own representative in Ihe provincial legislature from among its own
resident citizens. We do not need
to look to any outside district for
legislative timber. Were it so, we
will have gained nothing from
redistribution. In proportion to
its population the Boundary has
fully as many utile citizens tis  any
other section.
THE OUTLOOK  IN CASCADE  IMPROVING.
There is a decided improvement
in the general outlook in Cascade.
Renewed confidence in the stability
of the community is apparent on
every hand. The winter season,
with its depressive conditions,
which have been present in a
marked degree the past three or
four months, owing to open weather
and impassible roads, is rapidly
passing, and the awakening influences of springtime are inspiring
new hopes, new ambitions and renewed effort. The p����st two weeks
the town has been filling up with
the coming of strangers and the return of former citizens. Several
new businesses have been opened
up, and there are others in prospect. Altogether the indications
for the future are quite reassuring.
A cargo of Dagoes arrived in
Cascade Wednesday night from
Bossburg. They failed to provide
themselves with the requisite
health certificates and were notified
that they must retrace their steps
to the other side of the line. They
leisurely took their departure from
town the next day at noon. If
they had any smallpox germs in
their possession ample time and
opportunity was given them to
scatter the contagion inside ths
town limits. In fact, the healh
regulations against outside communities afflicted with smallpox, are
a roaring farce, so far as Cascade is
concerned. The health officer
should be stationed at the boundary
line, there exercising his authority,
and not wait till the incomers have
paraded our streets before showing
their right or lack of it  to do so.
In the effort on the part of Spain
to put down the revolution in Cuba,
she lost 125,000 soldiers, and nearly
500,000 Cubans sacrificed their
liveB to free their island from Spanish thralldom.
The Kettle River Valley Railway Charter bill has been intro-
ducted in the Dominion parliament
and passed its first reading.
BRIEF LOCAL MENTION
Mr. Stanley Mayall of the B. C.
M. & M. syndicate of Cascade was
a visitor to Rossland, this week,
and Mr. T. F. Carden of the same
firm, took a trip to Greenwood and
other towns on the line west of
here.
Dr. Jackes of Greenwood, the
government health officer for the
Boundary district, is to be in Cascade to-day, to vaccinate the school
children and all others large and
small who wish to be vaccinated.
His fee, in the case of those who
can afford to pay, will be $1.00, but
those who cannot afford ti pay
this amount will be vaccinated for
nothing.
W. A. Milne, formerly of the
firm of Francis & Milne, of this
place, but who has been in Midway
during the winter, has returned to
Cascade.
There are said to be three ciimh-
of smallpox in Grand Fork*, all
three parties afflicted being freighters. The assumption on the pari
of the authorities that a lien 1th certificate lenders a person insusceptible to the contagion, is Ihe variest
nonsense.
The Uev. Mr. McCoy was entertained at a bachelors' dinner at the
Y. M C. A. dining hall on Friday evening of last week. Tlieie
were present on that occasion
Messrs. Simpson, Kellman, Ritchie,
Ferguson and Simmons, and Mr.
and Mrs. Stocker and Miss Darrow.
Richard Darrow has been busy
the past week or two putting up
brick chimneys in different local
buildings. In this connection it
may not be out of place to say that
owing to luck of facilities for extinguishing fires, all who own
buildings should guard against disasters of this character as much as
possible. This can be materially
accomplished by the construction
of brick chimneys. It would lower
the rate of insurance considerably
hy reducing the risk.

Predicament of Ladysmith when Relieved.
Colonel Rhode*, brother of Cecil
Rhodes, describing in the Times
the entry into Ladysmith of Lord
Dundonald and 600 of the Imperial Light Horse and Natal Carbineers on Feb 28th, says: "It is
impossible to depict the enthusiasm
of the beleaguered garrison. Cheers
upon cheers rang from post to post,
and staff officers, civilians and
soldiers flocked to greet them. At
the ford of the Klip river women
with children in their arms tearfully pressed forward to grasp the
hands of the gallant band; sisters
and brothers, friends and relatives
met again. It was the most moving scene I have ever witnessed.
The contrast between the robust
troopers of a dozen battles and the
pale, emaciated defenders of Ladysmith was great. Gen. White and
his staff met the troops in the
center of the town. He was cheered with heartfelt enthusiasm. He
addressed the civilians and thanked them and the garrison for their
magnificent support throughout the
trials, which we alone can realize.
We could possibly have hung on for
six weeks longer, but the privations
would have been great and sickness
and the paucity of our ammunition
would have limited the number of
assaults we would have been able
to resist. We originally started
the siege with 12,000 troops and
4,000 natives. Between casualties
and sickness 8,000 soldiers passed
through the hospitals. It is impossible to over-emphasize the privations of the sick. Since the middle of January a man once down
wits practically lost. The reduced
rations of the soldiers were just
sufficient for subsistance. Daily
30 old horses and mules were
slaughtered and converted into
soup and sausages."
Probably the youngest bugler enlisted in Canada for active service
in South Africa is Edward Mc-
Cormick of the Queen's Own Rifles,
whose mother lives at 17 Gilder-
sleeve avenue. Bugler McCormick
attended the Public schools up to a
year ago, when he went into the
employ of Messrs. Lohb & Baird,
barristers, at 2-Toronto street,
Toronto. He is only 16 years of
age and was held in high esteem by
his comrads in the Q. O. R., says
the World. He has gone with the
Strathcona Horse.
Gen. Gatacre entered Stormberg
March 5th unopposed. The Boers
destroyed the railway approach,
but left the station intact.
The man Domke, killed in the
Boone logging camp at Rock Creek,
who leaves a large family of small
children, was carrying a $3,000 insurance policy on his life up to a
short time before his death, but unfortunately allowed it to lapse.

A FAREWELL TESTIMONIAL
To Rev. Joseph McCoy, Who Will Temporarily
Fill the Vernon Presbyterian Pulpit.
Last Tuesday night a large number of Cascade's leading citizens
gathered at the Laurel Ridge home
of Mr. and Mrs. G. K. Stocker to give
expression to their appreciation
of the Rev. Jos. McCoy, and of his
patient und successful labors for
the promotion of Christian sentiment and works in this community,
where he has resided the past fifteen
months, on the eve of his departure
for Vernon, B. C, to which field he
has been called. A very pleasant
time was passed in social conversation and entertaining games. Refreshments consisting of most delicious delicacies were served by Mr.
and Mr*. Stocker,who certainly well
know how and delight in entertaining their friends. Just before the
gathering dispersed Mr. John Simpson, addressing Mr. McCoy, read
the following written expression of
the sincere regard and esteem in
which he is held by his many
friends in Cascade, and handed him
the paper after reading. Mr. McCoy responded in his usual happy
and interesting manner, but with
much feeling, which seemed to draw
his hearers even nearer to him than
ever before. Following is the tribute.
Cascade City,        )
March 6th, 1900. j
To Reverend Joseph McCoy:
Beloved Pastor and Friend���It
is with feelings of deepest regret that
we have met to take our leave of
you on the eve of your departure
for Vernon, where you are to go for
a time to minister to the congregation there, and our sorrow is intensified by the knowledge that
your departure may be permanent.
For the past fifteen months you
have sympathized with us in our
sorrows, tribulations and trials;
have shared and added to our
pleasures and joys; and have been
to us a most faithful and trustworthy counsellor, guide and pastor, under whose ministrations we
all have been most greatly benefited. Your firm and kindly bearing
with your unvarying amiability
has been such as to gain the esteem
and affection of all and to promote
harmony, and "good will to men.''
Should ii be our misfortune to
lose you as a pastor, we sincerely
hope you may find a larger, richer
field for your labors where you
may soon be reunited with your
loving and beloved family, enjoying all the pleasures of the home
life, so typical of the life beyond.
Should your departure from us
be permanent we hope you will be
very happy in your new home, our
knowledge of your character assuring us no future happiness will be so
absorbing as to obliterate the memory of your friends in Cascade.
May the Divine Father always
look upon you as His beloved son,
shower His richest blessings upon
you and render your path in life
smooth, is the prayer of your well
wishers here assembled.
Ferguson, on Trout Lake, has a Local Paper.
R. T. Pettipiece, a veteran journalist, has begun the publication

Who Has Further Information ?
The following letter is self-ex-
planitory, and we publish it thinking that its publication may lead
to obtaining the information desired by the Dr. Barnardo Homes:
Barnardo, Man.,
Feb. 26th 1900.
Editor Cascade Record,
Cascade City, B. C.
Dear Sir:���
In a late issue of your paper,
which was sent me by the the C. P.
R. Land Department, I note that a
young man named William Price,
said to be at one time under the
care of Dr. Bamardo's Homes, was
killed accidently, on some public
works, near your town.
Upon receipt of this paper, I immediately looked up our records
here and I found that while we
have no William Price in our books
there is a Henry Price registered
and the records show that Henry
Price was last heard from at Revelstoke, B. C, consequently, fearing
that there might have been some
error in the giving of the christian
name to your reporter, I am now
writing 10 ask if you can see your
way clear to make further enquiry
into the antecedents of the poor
victim, and for any information
which yon can furnish, I will be
greatly obliged.   Yours truly,
E. A. Struthers.
Part of His Brains Taken Out.
Among the wounded soldiers who
arrived at Southampton from
South Africa was Private O'Leary,
whose case is a remarkable one.
He was shot in the battle at Colen-
so. The bullet lodged in his brain,
leaving O'leary speechless, sightless
and paralyzed. His life was despaired of, but Sir William MacCor-
mack, president of the Royal College of Surgeons, who was acting
as a volunteer surgeon with the
British army in South Africa, removed a portion of the wounded
man's brains, extracting the bullet,
and O'Leary has since practically
recovered his senses.
