THE CASCADE RECORD
Published in the Interests of the Boundary and Christina Lake   Mining Districts
��l
Vol. II.
CASCADE, B. C, JUNE 16, 1900.
No. 32.
AFTER ELECTION
EDITORIAL MUMBLINGS
Curt is and Mackintosh isn't.
���0���
We've met the enemy and he's our'n
���o���
Smith Curtis is the Hero of Rossland riding.
���o���
The Mackintosh supporters are taking their
medicine without a grimace.
���o���
Coal Mines and railroads will now retire from
the government of this province.
Mr. Mackintosh can now go down to Oregon
and look after his Sumpter boom.
���o���
The supposed defeat of Martinis mixing the
bitter with the sweet to the Curtis supporters.
���0���
The perfidy of the press in Greenwood, Grand
Forks and Rossland has been fittingly rebuked.
Martin is the political "Bobs" of British Columbia, and his arch enemy, the C. P. It., iu the
Oom Paul.
���0���
What befell that game rooster, Hector McPherson, that crowed so lustily at the opening
of the campaign in Rossland ?
���0���
Hon. Joseph  Martin, in  our judgment, will
organize the British Columbia legislature when
it convenes at Victoria July oth.
���o���
Despite the boodle influence   Grand   Forks
got in a knock-out blow on the railway octopus
in retaliation for its dirty depot trick.
���o���
The Conservatives thought to fool the people
by declaring against party lines, and  catching
Liberal votes, hut they fooled themselves.
���o���
Why did Mayor Manly support the C. P. R.
candidate after thatcorporation had defeated his
railway franchise application ?   Who will tell ?
���o���
Perhaps the railway  committee of the Dominion parliament would now think twice before voting down another Kettle river railway
franchise application.
���o���
"Kicking Joe"���always kicking against railroad aud coalmine influences in the halls of
legislation���will succeed himself as Premier of
British Columbia.
The Cascade Record and the Greenwood
Miner were the only papers in the Boundary
that supported Martin and Curtis. The Phoenix Pioneer blew onto the fence and cackled
both ways.
���0���
While the Mackintosh push were burdening
the wires and inflating his purchased organs
with silly and homoastic falsehoods, they were
riotously consuming his (or the C. P. R.'s) substance in the shape of booze.
���o���
Hon. Joseph Martin and Hon. Smith Curtis
stood off and repulsed the combined forees of
the rule or ruin monopolists, almost single-
handed, aided somewhat, it is true, by their dishonorable and supremely indiscrete enemies.
���0���
What shall be said of the voter who rails
against C. P. R. domination in politics and
government 364 days in the year and on the
365th day gets out and works and votes for the
railroad candidate? Is he a man or a mouse?
���0���
The Mackintosh papers in the Province of
British Columbia have deeply disgraced journalism.   Their brazen exhibition of venality
and wanton  disregard of the truth  and the intelligence of their readers, standi) unparalleled,
���0���
There is no man in the Dominion of Canada
with a more pronounced and forceful individuality than Hon. Joseph Martin, and he will
make the picayune journalists which have been
hounding him the past three months admit it,
if they have sense enough to be decent.
���0���
What will be the next boodling combination
that the Grand Forks Gazette and the Rossland
Miner will bagain their ���"inflooence" to���influence, influence, did we say ? Marvellous influence. By their course, however, we surmise
they sought the defeat of the candidate for
whom they so disgustingly gushed.
���o���
The extra charges on its freight and passenger traffic made necessary by the millions represented by C. P. R. watered stock, would pay
the principal and interest of the cost of the
proposed Coast-Midway railway in ten years.
Why should we prefer to pay those extra charges
and deprive ourselves of the increased facilities
that a competing road would give us ?
���0���
When the action of the Greenwood Times,
the Grand Forks Gazette find the Rossland
Miner in the political contest that closed last
Saturday is taken into consideration, why
should we blame the people for saying, "We
take no stock in what the papers say." The
yards, rods and miles of rot that is being printed about British Columbia mining prospects are
equally disgusting to investors.
The voters of Rossland riding are to be heartily gralulated oil their victory over the anti-
government ownership combine, the election of
Hon. Smith Curtis being not only an endorsa-
tion of himself, but of Mr. Martin and his up-
to-date and progressive platform. Mr. Curtis
is to be honored for the manly way in which he
defended the Premier from the malicious thrusts
of the hirelings of his opponents.
���o���
The organs of monoply that fought Martin
iu the late campaign are now declaring that
"Martinism" is dead. They areeither insincere
or foolishly blind. "Martinism" as set forth in
his platform is the spirit of the age as between
the people and monoplistict government. The
idea of government ownership of public utilities
is growing stronger every day. Martin's platform embodied this sentiment, and a large majority of the successful candidates are embned
with this spirit.
���0���
During the political campaign just ended
The Record concluded to trust the conduct of
the war campaign in South Africa to Bobbs,
who has in the meantime heen diligent and
quite successful. He has driven the enemies
from their capital cities and caused them to dee
as rats from the masts of a sinking ship. But
it now appears that Bobbsie has got into a mix-
up a le Baden-Powell, where he will need a little assistance While resting at Pretoria and
locating fleeing Boers, the pesky fellows swung in
behind and interrupted his communication with
the source of supplies by destroying 30 miles of
railroad. Then the Derbyshire batallion threw
itself into the Boer jaws and was all chewed up,
only six being left to tell the tale, many being
taken prisoners. However, with plenty of time
and arm-chair advice Bobbs will come out on
top of the whole Boer outfit.
The Grand Forks Daily Gazette has turned
up its toes, folded its little arms across its stilled
breast and shuffled off the mortal coil, so to
speak. For short it has ceased to exist. That
great, glorious Grand Forks, with all its bustle
and blow could not keep a little six-column
daily newspaper alive speaks volumes in refutation of the extravagant claims of the local
press and real estate speculators regarding its
strength and prosperity. The town has been
traveling at too rapid a pace. It must now submit to a calm that no doubt will be both painful
and expensive to many who put too much faith
in wild boom methods.
���o���
To Premier Laurier: If you do not interfere
with Hon. Joseph Martin, he will soon rid this
province of a pack of reckless politicians that
ought to have been run out years ago. His opponents are mostly corporation boodlers.
���0���
The technical name for the horseless carriage
introduced from Flanders is: "Snelpaardeloos-
zonderspoorwegpetrolrijtuig;" literally translated it means: "A carriage which is worked by
means of petroleum, which travels fast, which
has no horses, and which is not run on rails."
���n���
In an interview, Hon. Joseph Martin said:
"Eleven of my supporters have been elected.
The Opposition is so hopelessly divided that I
intend to continue in power." Good for you,
Joseph. St. Paul saieVr "Patience and persever-
ence overcometh all things." Stay with it.
You'll down 'em yet.
���o���
The result of last Saturday's election, according to some anti-Martin papers, is as follows:
Government 8, Conservative 4, Provincial
Party 3, Independent 2. Labor 1, Opposition 20.
It will be seen by this that Liberals are not
mentioned. The supposition is that Turner has
swollowed them. The Record ventures to say.
however, that the Liberal party will not be
found in the Turner stomach ou July 5th next.
���o���
The successful Liberal candidates who deemed it policy to repudiate Mr. Martin during the
campaign, should remember that a large majority of the Liberals throughout the province do
not endorse that action. They should not forget that this will probably be the last provincial campaign fought on the no-party lines, and
to join hands with the Conservatives to boost
that party into power at this juncture would be
considered a very reprehensible course for them
t�� pursue, so far as the Liberal party of British
Columbia is concerned. The Record advises
that you stand aloof from all fusion confusions.
���o���
Word comes from Victoria that a caucus of
the members of the legislature, who are qpposed
to premier Martin, will be held in Vancouver
on Monday next, says the Nelson Tribune.
Those who have the arrangements for the caucus in hand desire to get in all who are opposed
to the present government, and if possible settle
upon a leader. Among all those ambitious
leaders of the Opposition, will it be possible to
settle upon one ? Keep your eye on the Hon.
Joseph while the conglomerated opposition are
contending for the leadership bone. He will
be the next Premier if Sir Wilfrid Laurier is
not overcome hy the associated coalmine and.
railway villainies, whose efforts are supported,
by the anti-Martin press.
���0���
The Nelson Economist, after setting forth the
outcome that would please its fancy, says :
"It is true that the Liberals included in ihe
Opposition party might object strongly to
throwing in their fortunes with the Conservatives, as in that event it might be construed as
a Conservative victory, while really the Liberals have contributed toward bringing about the
victory. In that event the Opposition, it must
be confessed, would be the lo'ser. Indeed, it will
take a wise head to solve the problem. Just
how many Liberals are included in the Opposi*
tion we do not know, but we should suppose
there are at least seven. Dividing the successful
candidates into Liberals and Conservatives as
they voted at the last election, we incline to the
belief that neither could count on,a majority,,
and should either party be permitted to dominate, it would be a matter of great doubt as to-
the result." 2

THE   CASOADE   RECORD
June Id, 1900
THE CASCADE RECORD
Published on Saturdays at Cascade,  It. ('.,
 BY H. S, TURNER.	
MARTIN   RESIGNS,   DUNSMUIR   BECOMES
PREMIER.
Hon. Joseph Martin has resigned
the Premiership, and Gov. Mdnne*
has called James Dunsmuir to take
the place vacated.
It will ho seen by our first page
this week that the editor relieved
himself of considerable political effervescence, and that the action of
Martin since that page was printed
has knocked many of the prognostications therein set forth into something like a cocked hat. Mr. Martin has apparently concluded lo
give the majority of the voters what
they desire as indicated by their
votes, a monopoly government, and
one of the wealthiest coalmine owners in the northwest has heen clothed with power, at his request, it is
said.
Alexander Lynch Dies Suddenly
Two hours after he was last seen
on the street, Mr. Alexander Lynch
a pioner of Caecade,was found dead
in his room at the Commercial hotel
yesterday morning about 10, of paralysis of the heart. Hie tivo sons,
one of Portland, the other of El lens-
hurg have heen notified and will be
here to take charge of the body,
which will be kept till their arrival.
Deceased was about 66 years age, a
native of Toronto, and of genial
disposition.
WAGON ROAD TO FRANKLIN CAMP.
Mr. R. McRae is building an addition to his residence.
The Yale-Columbia Lumbering
company will begin work in earned
on its extensive enterprise here in
about a week.
Mr. A K. Stuart, Western Canadian representative to the Paris exposition, sailed for Liverpool on
June 1st, after spending a few days
in Ottawa.
While other overboomed towns
of the Boundary are floundering in
the gloom of despondency which
comes with reaction in such cases,
Cascade is just beginning to shine
hy reason of its true merits.
Mr. G. J. Simmons and Mr. J. G.
Rives returned home from their two
weeks' prospecting tour in Bnrnt
Basin Wednesday night after having staked some apparently rich
prospects. They speak in glowing
terms of that already wonderfully
promising mineral district.
Few sections of the Boundary
country are more healthful than
Cascade, in corroboration of which
claim we note with regret that Mr.
Joseph Schaick has found the drug
business unprofitable here, and has
packed up his drugs preparatory to
moving on to a community where
the germs of disease are more prevalent.
The Misses Grant of Gladstone,
were in Cascade Thursday night,
having come down to attend the
Ladie's Mutual Aid Societys' lawn
party. During their stay here they
were the guests of Mrs. G. K. Stocker. Friday noon, with several other
friends, they were sumptuouely
dined at the home of Messrs. II. G.
Ritchie and Robt. Kelman. The
undisputed excellency of the spread
was conclusive evidence of the ability of these gentlemen to manage
the cuizine without the aid of professionals, which gives to their
bachelor home a charm that attracts visitors frequently.
Cascade Should Take this Matter up with a
Vim that will Insure Its Construction.
Chas. Sandner is down from his
ranch at the head of Christina lake,
where he also has a shingle mill
proposition under way. The main
object of his visit to Cascade is to
consult with our citizens regarding
the building of a wagon road from
the head of the lake into Franklin
camp. This appears to The Record
to be an important matter to Cascade. Franklin camp is known to
be rich in vast veins of minerals.
It is only about 25 miles from the
head of the lake, and the grade over
which a good wagon road could be
constructed is exceedingly easy,
and then the lake itself would form
the natural highway lo this point.
Cascade should put ilself in correspondence with the people of Franklin camp immediately in relation
to this matter. The proposed route
of the wagon road is the natural
and only feasible one to put the
camp in touch with the outside
worid, as it is at least 25 miles
shorter than by way of Grand
Forks or any other point on the
railroad. Mr. Sandner should be
assisted in every possible. way to
put this project on a   successful
footing.	
THE HORSES WERE DROWNED.
And the   Buggy   Thoroughly   Demoralized,
While the Driver Swam for Dear Life.
Wednesday last Phil Reidy,
hostler at the B. C. Stables in Cascade, drove a span of horses attached to a top buggy down to the
river near ihe power house site, for
the purpose, we are lold, to wash the
carriage. After it had been washed,
Mr. Riley thought to rinse the bug-
jiy by driving a little further into
the stream. In doing so, one of the
animals felt out of Bight in a deep
hole, the other hor.-e falling on top
and the buggy followed; then the
trouble began. Reidy saw that to
s-ave himself he must take to the
water and swim, which he did. In
their wiixup with the carriage and
harness, the horses floundered out
into the current and were swept
down stream and both drowned.
Floating down the river a short
distance the unfortunate animals
lodged in a shallow place, and were
dragged ashore, the buggy being
thoroughly demolished. The unfortunate accident entails a loss to
Mr. Bertois of the B. C. Stables of
at least $350. No blame is laid
upon Mr. Reidy, as the affair was
purely an unavoidable accident.
MUTUAL  AID   SOCIETY'S   LAWN  PARTY.
Which Owing to Jupiter Pluvlus' Interference
wis held Thursday Evlnlng In the Presbyterian Church.
It rained Thursday night, so the
Lawn Party, given under the auspices of the Cascade Mutual Aid
Society, was driven into the Presbyterian church. But that little interference on the part of Jupiter
Pluvius, detracted but slightly from
the pleasures of the occasion, as all
who were present will attest. The
program was an excellent one, its
many numbers being ably rendered
by all the participants. Despite
tb�� inclemency of the weather, the
attendance was good, the refreshment* excellent and a most enjoyable time had. The net proceeds
amounted to about $25.
Orders to begin work on the power keuse to be erected here are daily
���xpected.
A propitious rain last night. It
was needed.
Mr. Widdicombe, late of Cascade,
has been appointed Health Officer
of Midway.
The Cascade Glee Club should be
made a permanent institution.
Why not?   Next.
Mr. W. M. Walsh, superintendent of the Monterey mine, is calling far tenders for running a 400-
foot tunnel on the property.

THE CANNON BALL, ON BAKER CREEK.
Putting In New Machinery and Erecting Shafthouse���Still
Sinking.
Exploration work on the Cannonhnll on Baker creek, in the Christina lake district, iff he-
inn energetically pushed ahead. With what
hue been already accomplished and when the
work now in hand has heen completed, over
200 feet of shafts will have heen sunk, and
considerable crosscutting done. The company
is now about to install hoisting and pumping
plants, the machinery for which is now arriving Mr. J. W. Spaulding, the superintendent,
was in Cascade this week, purchasing about
8000 feet of lumber for shaft, bunk houses, etc.
With the outlay rendered necessary by these
latter improvements the company has expended between $15,000 and $20,000 in development work, all of which is amply justified by
results obtained.
A RICH GROUP STAKED ON CANYON CREEK.
Mr. Angus Cameron, who has been more or
in the Burnt Basin district for the past
four weeks, is elated with its present prospects.
Several new and valuable discoveries have been
made this season, and among them he reports
a group of claims staked by the Cameron brothers, (not relatives of his) Kenneth Matherson
and G. T.Curtis, or for them, at the head of
Canyon creek, about three miles east of Gladstone. The chipped sufface ore assayed over
$15. A few feet below they run an open cut
into the inclined ledge, through a little lime
rock and struck the ore body which they penetrated about five feet without any sign of a wall
to determine the width of the vein. It is beautiful in appearance. They are having another
assay made. We understand a carload of the
ore will he packed out and sent to the smelter
for a test.
C. P. R. OFFICIALS TOUR THE BOUNDARY.
A small army of C. P. B. officials invaded
the Boundary this week. The party consisted
of W. F. Tye, Winnipeg, Man., chief engineer
of construction; John G. Sullivan, Trail, engineer of construction for the Kootenays; W. H.
Aldridge, Trail, manager of the smelter; Captain J. W. Troup, Nelson, superintendent of the
Kootenay division; F. W. Petors, Nelson, assistant general freight agent and D. W. Moore,
Trail, ore buyer for the smelter   They came for
the purpose of inspecting spurs recently built
hy their company to different points. Among
the places visited were the Granby smelter at
Grand Forks, the B. C. mine in Summit camp,
where they were entertained at luncheon by
manager S. F. Parrish; Wellington camp, visiting the Winnipeg, Brandon and Golden Crown
mines, then down to Phoenix, visiting the Snow-
shoe, Old Ironsides aud Knob Hill  properties.
STATE OWNERSHIP IN HUNGARY.
The Toronto World is contantly endeavoring
to enlighten its readers on the subject of state
ownership. A late issue contains editorial reference to the Hungarian state railroads, which
presents an interesting study in the possibilities
of state ownership of public franchises. So
profitable have cheap railway fares been found
in Hungary that the government has decided to
modify the system and make still further reductions. In Hungary railway tickets are not
sold to any particular station. The passenger
pays according to the number of zones through
which he passes in making his trip. According
to the new system, which is to take effect July
1st, the railway system is to be divided into 20
zones, each zone comprising on an average about
15 miles. The twentieth zone in order to give
an intelligent idea of the Hungarian system
and the rates that are to come into effect next
mouth we'll show how it would work out between
Toronto and Montreal and a few intermediate
points. A first-class ticket between the two
cities named would cost $4.05, second-clan $3.03;
third-class $2.02. The rate by Canadian lines
is $10. The rate from Toronto to Coburg, 70
miles, would be $1.27, 95c and 57c for the three
classes, respectively, as against $2 35 by the
Canadian line. The third-class fare to Belleville would be $1.01, the second-class $1.52, and
the first-class $2.23, as against $3.75 by the
Grand Trunk. Our rate of three cents per
mile seems absurd, says the World, in the face
of the Hungarian schedule, but what is that as
compared with the eight cents per mile between
Cascade and Rossland ? In Hungary the working classes travel for eight mills, or four-fifths
of a cent per mile, for a distance of two hundred
and fifty miles or less, and a lower rate for greater
distances One and a half cents per mile would
cover the second-class rates, while the first-class
tariff is under two cents per mile.
In addition to the zone tariff proper, Hungary
has what is called a "neighorhood tariff," for
distances of twelve miles and less, under which
nearly all the short distance travel is carried.
The tariff for twelve miles is twelve, six and
four cents for the three classes, and for twelve
miles twenty, twelve and eight cents. We are
told that these low rates have had the effect to
greatly stimulate travel. No such rates as the
above may be expected in this country where
the governments virtually donate the people's
money to individuals to build the roads and
then allow them to collect a tariff on watered
stock to an amount Jor times greater than is
actually required to pay running expenses and
interest on the real investments.
Proper railway tariffs will only come when
the government not only pays for the road but
retains possession of it.
BIG FREIGHT CONTRACT.
T. A. Ireland has secured a big freighting
contract. All of the Tom Thumb machinery,
except one car, will be freighted from Bossburg
to Republic. Mr. Rogers, manager of the Tom
Thumb, passed through town Tuesday when he
awarded the contract to Mr. Ireland. The
company will have several carloads of machinery, as they intend to erect their own mill, Mr.
Rogers being now on his way east to order the
mill plant. In the mean time the hoist and
compressor plant will he arriving.
CAR BROKEN INTO.
A box car in which was the household good*
of F. M. Corbel I, who moved last week from
Northport to this place, was broken into and
several articles were stolen, among which was
considerable silverware belonging to Mrs. Cor-
bell, marked *'F. M. C." Anyone purchasing
silverware from any peddler is requested to
scrutinize the engraving.���Bossburg Journal.
The citizen who cares not enough about the
institutions of his country to qualify himself
to exercise the franchise, is little better than the
voter who waits for some one to tell him how to
vote. One is dangerous from lack of intelligence, and the other from lack of stamana.

THE   CASCADE   RECORD
June 16,1W0
BRIEF LOCAL MENTION.
C. H. Thomas, the indefatigable
proprietor of the Hotel  Cascade,
has a neat, new sign on his  livery
barn.
There appears to be more travel
by rail into the Boundary country
at present than for many months
past.
Mr. S. W. Bear, the painter, has
returned from Grand Forks to Cascade, where he will remain permanently.
Inspector Burns, of the government school department, held an
entrance examination at Grand
Forks Thursday and Friday.
With the inauguration of the
"Imperial Limited" service the
Canadian Pacific railway operate a
through sleeper between Arrowhead
and Vancouver for the accommodation of the Kootenay business. This
will be a very great convenience to
the travelling public.
The Cracker Jack claim on Baker creek is reported to be showing
up in a most satisfactory manner.
D. C. Beach, owner with E. L. Tate
of this property, has been working
the claim the past few weeks, and
says ho has taken from the Cracker Jack vein some of the prettiest
ore ever seen in the camp. The 4x6
foot shaft is now down 18 feet.
Mrs. McFetridge, wife of Mr. H.
McFetridge, section foreman for
the C. P. R., with residence in Cascade, arrived from Ontario last
Saturday. She was accompanied
by their little daughter. Mr. and
Mrs.McFetridge have gone to housekeeping in the Section building,
Mr. McRae having moved his family back to their own dwelling.
Contractor S. F.Quinlivan began
work again last Monday on the
waterway of the Cascade Water
Power and Light company. Men
will be put on as fast as they can
be obtained till fifty or more are
employed. Contractor Olson keeps
two shifts hammering away in the
400-foot tunnel under the C. P. R.
track, and thus the work goes on to
completion.

CASCADE CURRY,
A LOCAL HASH  WITH   FOREIGN  SEASONING,
DISHED UP BY STANLEY MAYALL.
Vita brevis est, Smith Curt is.
Presto maduro presto podrida
whilst the dono molto espettato e ven-
duto non donato.
All that some of us have to congratulate ourselves on is thai we
voted with the "intelligent minority," await redistribution and console ourselves that it is "better to
err with Pope than shine with Pye."
Wonder if Curtis would have
"made it stick" had some of his
friends heen compelled to write
their "sponsorial and patronymic
appellations" instead of making
their usual signatures on the ballot slips They are studying Kipling in Rossland; Aesop might also
be recommended, with special reference to a certain snake yarn. "Cast
your bread upon the waters and ye
shall see it after many days"���in
the form of sour dough. Introduce
outside millions to a mining camp,
build up its industries, satisfy
shareholders, support labor, and
after many days ye shall see your
reward in the preference of a "promising" pretender, whose highest
ideal in mine flotation is tn induce
local storekeepers to take mining
stock in exchange for groceries. In
short, "Alii sunt docti, alii sunt in-
docti', or as a college companion
once translated it, "Some are doctors, some are quacks." Anyhow
the general public will understand
it better after the medicine has been
tried, and there was once an audience that thought the imitative
squeak of Archippus more lifelike
than the real thing.
I hold it true whate'er befall.
I feel it when I cuss the most,
'Tis better to have polled and lost,
Than never to have polled at all,
"Was she to blame?" Eh! Well,
personally, in spite of her youth
and beauty, I think she was, but
might be let off with a caution; as
for the rest of the caste, however,
hanging is too good for them, and
someone ought to be indicted as an
accessory before the fact for aiding
and abetting such characters.
George Moore is going round
with murder in his eye, and a club
in his hand. Some while since he
filled out his vote application and
gave it to a dear friend to post.
George Moore is a conservative,
and thit friend a liberal of the
deepest dye, consequently the paper never got posted; and when
George came like a sensible man to
vote for Mackintosh he found he
was not listed. That's why he's got
his mad up and is seeking his
friend, he says that:���
If he gets a chance to kill
That offspring of a terrier,
Just break his neck, he surely will

a humorist, or else a good judge of
men and places. A drunken Swede
rolled into the booking office Saturday, and stammered out "Zay.
Gi' me ticket to hell," and then
straightway without quivering a
muscle, or even blinking his nethermost eyelid did Frank Edward
book him to Grand Forks.
Our friend Mr. Tebo is evidently
I was there myself a few days
since, and found the town much as
usual--"pretty well thank you."
but one thing struck me as being
particularly worthy of comment
and praise, and that was some apple pie at the Yale hotel. It was
the creation of an artist, I regret to
say I forgot to enquire his name.
I did the next be��t thing however,
and asked for a second piece; then
by dint of using my vote and influence with the waitreas, who whb
almost as nice and eweet as the pie,
I acquired a third chunk. After
that I seriously debated whether or
not I ought to offer to pay for
another meal and start in afresh.
I decided not however. The funny
thing of it all is that I actually
went away in the end forgetting to
pay for what I had had, and now I
owe six bits for three pieces, but
they were cheap.
Some years ago sitting on the
grape covered verandah of a Brussels hotel, I well remember hearing an old friend of considerable
experience in the consular and diplomatic world, and who recently
died in her Majesty's service in
Manila, say, that Britain had need
to keep her eyes closely fixed on
two things. One was the necessity
for getting a footing in Persia, and
the other the importance of securing by marriage the young Queen
of Holland. Well, Russia has just
got in ahead of us in Persia, and it
seems at times as if something���
"made in Germany" would rob \a
of the matrimonial prize. What
Mr. Rawson Walker said, has increased in importance year hy year
as those who have studied European history well know. And yet
our diplomatists have once more
been caught napping.
And talking of grapes and Brussels reminds me of something else;
reminds me of scores of things in
truth, for I have resided in the dear
old town for years, and know and
love it as I do no other place on
earth. And if besides its palaces,
one finds prisons, and amidst its
gaiety some misery, and if for
neighbors, the richest ami joiliest of
Kings, has the Pietje Snots and the
Sipidos of recent times the tout ensemble is probably such as even
Paris will never excel. And the
tout ensemble brings me back to my
subject.    I had been breakfasting
with the Countess Van M little
black-eyed angel-faced willow-patterned Mina, and what we partook
of was caviare, spiced ham and
spinach, well-ripened frontage de
Brie and black Hamburgh grapes
washed down with Chambertin.
When I got home my wife kissed
me and then staggered visibly. She
faced the situation bravely however, shuddered and rang the bell
for the valet. "Henri," she cried,
"run for the doctor, go quickly,
vite! vite! comme ea!" and Bhe
stamped her feet; "my poor husband is dying of cancer in the
etomach." That was all the thanks
little Mina got for her recherche repast, and I was sent to Oslende for
a fortnight, to get purified.
"Cleanliness is next to Godliness," but the soap business is overdone, and somehow it has been my
lotto become somewhat intimately
acquainted with half the soap manufacturers in England. Therefore
I have watched their advertising
advancements and bickering with
considerable interest. "Good morning! Have you used Pears' soap?"
is a standard greeting all over the
world, but a rival's reply, "Yes.
But Cleaver's is better, good evening," is almost unknown; and now
we are being informed that "Apples
make cider, but Pears make soap."
Unfortunately so do many other
less attractive ingredients. But till
the soap keeps on selling, and go
where you will you cannot get
away from the advertisements,
they're plastered on Cape Horn,
and doubtless floating from the
North Pole, and you're just as likely to find a "Sunlight" wrapper on
the best piano at Balmoral as you
are in the cradle of the young king
Coko Bungo of Blatterpoo.
But the best of the whole lot of
soap kings is my old friend and
College chum, Robert Wellsar
Burkerstaffe. Bob inherited almost unlimited wealth and added
to it. Then he erected one of the
finest residences in Great Britain,
and became a member of the coaching club, owning some of the finest
teams in the land, and being a free
agent, married one of the prettiest
and cleverest and oweetest girls
man's eyes ever lighted on, and
who happened, by the way, to baa
poor governess at Bodnant Hal),
the adjoining residence occupied by
the Hughes-Margetsons But when
the bride came home Mrs. Hughes-
Margetson stiffened her upper lip
and called not on the happy couple,
moreover she influenced her friends
to go and do likewise, explaining
"Well you see Mrs. Bukerstaffe was
a servant of mine, a governess don't
you know, besides Bukerstaffe is in
trade anyway and my people, and
of course the Hughes-Margetsons,
are above that sort of thing."
About three weeks later, I met
Bob on "the flags" in Liverpool.
He appeared in an unusually good
humour, snd was chuckling audibly as he passed the Town hall.
"Hullo, Bob, what's up?" I asked.
He tapped his breast pocket. "Best
joke you ever heard," he replied.
"The Bodnant Hall lease expired
today, and I've bought the place
clean over the Hughes- Margetson's
heads, and am going to bundle tbe
whole brood out and make stables
of it."   Which he promptly did.
Mr. Benjamin D. Silliman has
refused $50,000 a front foot for
his land cornering on Broadway
ai.d Wall street. I guess that's
about a record, but whether Mr.
Silliiuan is quite as foolish us his
name indicates, remains to be seen,
as Broadway and Wall street represent quite a lot outside New York,
I well remember though, in the
latter part of the eighties, seeing
land sold in Melbourne, Australia,
for $6,250 per foot, and knowing it
fetched $8,750. As an active journalist, possessing some means of
comparison, I expressed my opinion
pretty freely at the time, both in
the local press and in the old country journal which I was acting as
travelling correspondent for. Icon-
tended that such prices were an
abortion and an absurdity, (and
they called me another.)
Later on, however, when that
same land was going begging, or
al any rate would not fetch the
price of its former taxation, when
hundreds were homeless and thousands were "broke", and when
$300,000,000 of banking assets bad
melted into widow's tears, or cry*-
taiized into doubtful dirt, one
lone correspondent sent me a post
curd. "You were right, we're all
bust, come back soon, we're looking
for prophets of any kind now."
If they are not careful in New
York something similar may happen, for it is not only land but a
score of other securities that are up
at balloon prices, which will some
day tumble like sandbags and bring
on wholesale wreckage in men,
minds and matter.
And I don't want anything to-
happen to New York; its a mighty
fine city. Indeed, I only ever have
had one grudge against the place,
and Providence took the settlement
clean out of my hands all same
Sodom and Gomorrah, for in all
my travels I was only once asked
to pay my hotel bill in advance,.,
and that was at the Windsor in
New York.
The Hun. Mr. Martin's position,
reminds me of that of a certain seaman ashore in Alexandria after the
bombardment. He hud been celebrating, and was mounted ou a
donkey but facing his tail. "Hello!"
said a by-stander, "sit further
buck, you'll make its head ache,
besides you're wrong way round."
"Hie���how the deuce do you know
which way I am going?" Jack replied. Just so, and the donkey
which was supporting him didn't
know either.
Who seeks to please all men each way
And not himself offend,
He May begin his work today,
But who knows when he'll end!
Which I respectfully suggest for
the serious consideration of those
of my friends who could write this
page so much better and cheaper
than I do. 8
