Whut may be the Hint step in the
consolidation of the various large
sugar industries in the island of
Cuba, or the purchase of these interests by American capitalists, has
been taken. The Chapaga Sugar
company with offices in New York,
has placed contracts in the United
States aggregating $2,000,000 for
the equipment of the largest sugar
plant ever built in Cuba.
The company, of which ex-Congressman Hawley of Texas is president and in which H H. Howelson
& Co., and Theodore Havemeyer
are largely interested, has acquired
66,000 acres of land in eastern
Cuba. Nearly 12,000 acres of this
land are under cultivation, while
on the rest the work of planting sugar cane will he immediately
begun. This enormous planting is
without precedent in the history of
Cuba. With the exception of 800
acres in the immediate vicinity of
Ihe factory location, 10,000 acres of
undergrowth are being divided
among colonists, who cultivate
their fields and deliver the cane to
the mill for a return of four per
cent. A railway 30 miles long will
lie constructed on tho e-laie and
grinding operations will begin
next December, by which time it is
believed some 350,000 tons of cane
will he ready to be handled. The
mills will have a daily capacity for
the grinding of 3000 tons of cane.
The power will be derived from a
steam plant of 6000 horsepower.
Aguetus Smith of New York has
obtained the order for the buildings
which will mean the purchase of
$800,00 worth of structural steel.
The Babcock & Wilcox company
will build the boilers of 600 horsepower each. Eleven piston pattern
pumps and three rotary dry vafcuum
pumping equipments will be furnished by Henry R. Worthington
while another New York concern
���the Morris machine company���
is to supply three large pumps directly connected to vertical engines.
Fox BroB. & Co., have undertaken
the contract for the equipment of
the machine shops. The tools comprise pipe cutting machines, gap
lathes, engine lathee, radial drill
presses, bolt cutters, twist drill
grinders, etc. The same firm has
taken an order for 200 sugar cars.
The Whitney iron works of New
Orleans will build three immense
nine roller mills and crushers.
They will also make the necessary
filter presses. The clarifying apparatus is to be furnished by the
G. W. Deming Co. of New Orleans.
The Chattanooga Car company of
Chattanooga, Tenn., will build 150
cars. The Illinois Steel company
is to execute the rail contract, which
calls for 1000 tons of 40 pound
The Sugar Apparatus Manufacturing company of Philadelphia
will build the multiple effects and
the vacuum pans are to be got from
James Oat & Sons of the same city.
Other contracts just determined
on include orders for factory stacks
and steel tanks from the Ritter.Con-
ley  Manufacturing   company   of
Pittsburg, Pa.; mill shafts of the
Bethlehem steel works of Bethlehem, Pa.; and Blowers from the B.
F. Sturtevunt company of New
York City.
Eastern  People Imposed Upon.
The operations of an eastern concern known as the "American Mining, Milling & Investment Co., of
Minneapolis, Minn.," which include a wild cat speculation at Curlew, Wash., are bearing fruit in the
shape of a disappointed and enraged
people, who have been induced to
come from the east to that place by
most barefaced misrepresentation.
Monday a party of four young men
from Minnesota, who had walked
across from Bossburg, waited here
for the next train to Grand Forks.
They were bound for Curlew, and
were exceedingly anxious to get to
Curlew thut day, as it was the one on
which the company in the east had
advertised to start up its immense
electrical street car system. These
men said the place was lavishly
advertised as being a town of 2,000
to 3,000 inhabitants, and with all
modern improvements, smelters,
saw mills etc. They "aid that
hundreds in the east were making
great sacrifice of their little holdings to get out here as soon as possible, only to find themselves deceived and ruined.

MisB Minnie M. Wilkins, at the
residence of the bridegroom's mother, Mrs. Jennie Carter, Columbia,
B. C., Rev. R. W. Trotter officiating; Miss Zeula Mahun, as bridesmaid and Daniel D. Webber groomsman. A few of the friends of the
contracting parties witnessed the
ceremony, which was very impressive and eloquently rendered. After
the effusion of congratulations,
handshakings, and the scattering
of rice, a much relished repast, of
icecream, cake, nuts and fruits was
served. Added, the general good
humor and merriment of the guests,
a very pleasant and enjoyable evening was spent. Such only as occasions of this nature will bring.
Long may the sunshine of happiness brighten their path, is the
wish of their many friends.

Tht Timber Wealth ol the Phlllpplae Islands Being Rapidly Absorbed by American Speculators.
C. M. Lazier, recently returned
from the Philippine Islands, where
he has been investigating the timber possibilities of the country,
speaks as follows concerning the
future for the lumber industry in
that country:
"I spent three months in the
Philippine islands," he said the
other day, "and of all the lumber
countries I have ever seen that is
the best. There is a wealth of ill
kinds of the best timber there, and
while there is only one line of
railway at the present time, there
is enough timber along that line to
keep a hundred mills busy the next
50 years. The government iu going to build another road and this
will pass through a thickly timbered country.
A greater portion of the timber
there is the best grades of hardwood. In the hardwood sections of
the east the trees are all about the-
same size and I have seen them as
large as any of the cedar in Washington. There is a great amount
of mahogany along the line of tfae>
railway from'Manila to Dagupan.
This is the best class of that timber
I have ever seen. It ia hardly as-
dark as the mahogany we have ia
this country, but for the u^es wt��
put it to here it is much prettier.
I have interested some eastern
capitalists in it and we are going.
to put up a mlil not far from Manila, and engage in the business on :>
big scale, it is our intention tn ship-
largely to the United States, but at
the same time we will look after the
government trade on the islands.
There are two mills on tbe islands
now, but neither of these have done
much business with the government
for the reason that they have not
it sufficient capacity. This we
will have, and will be able to fill
any orders that may come to us.
As regards the Spooner amendment to the army bill, which bas
been further amended by Senator
Hoar sn as to prevent cutting nf
timber nn public land on the islands, I do not think it will have
any effect on the development of
the lumber business there. There
are between twenty and thirty
million acres of timber land on the
archipelago. Of this amount there
are about 47,000 acres owned by
private individuals.
This land is closer to transportation than any other, and therefore will be the better to work. It
is true that almost half of this land
is owned by the Tabacaler company, but it is willing that it
should be put on the market.
There are but few pieces of private
timber land in the islands that are
not at the present time for sale,
therefore even with the amendment
there will be little difficulty in
pioneer lumber concerns getting all
they may want for several years to
The lumber business of the Philippines will yet be one of the greatest industries on the islands, and
will revolutionize many things of
wood product in the United States.'' 2

It is announced that Sir
Wilfrid Laurier will visit
British Columbia during the
coining summer. There could
be no better opportunity for
the province to impress the
Premier with the vastness of
its resouces and the necessities for their develodment.
The recent visit of Premier
Dunsmuir and Attorney-Gen.
eral Eberts to Ottawa, and the
exhaustive statement laid before Sir Wilfrid aud his cabinet by the officials was a
master piece of business tact,
which has begun to bear fruit
already. It has brought this
province to the attention of
the Dominion government in
a forceful and intelligent manner, the benefits of which will
be enduring and most profitable. This one act of the
present government cannot
be too highly estimated and
will ��� cover up a multitude of
sins it may otherwise be found
guilty of. Altogether, if the
government does not balk the
Coast-Kootenay railway, it
will stand well with the people.
But if it does filibuster and
load its railway policy with
riders beyond endurance, the
'execrations of the masses will
be its portion. Let us hope
that its practical and wise business head may avoid shipwreck on this shoal.
The Vernon News is mis-
imformed when it states that
the poll tax iu California is
$8. The writer paid poll tax
there for 22 years, which is
$2, and no more. Such wild
statements as the above to
bolster up argument will not
win out in the long run.
If Mr. Dunsmuir persists in
giving the people of the province the "glassy eye and marble brow" in railway matters,
it will be well for him to set
aside a liberal sum as a provision for mourners to attend
his political funeral.
The "lead refinery delegation" of massive proportions
which is to visit Ottawa has
been given liberal rates by the
C. P. R.���$50 for the round
trip. Competition works
wonders when played against

Activity iu mining matters
in the vicinity of Greenwood,
Midway and Phoenix seems
to jog steadily along, and all
of their interests in this respect are improving day by
day. The same may be said
of the Burnt Basin, Gladstone
and Cascade. The doubling
of the capacity of the Granby
smelter will enliven Grand
Forks and give that town a
good boost ahead. The building of the greatest smelter
enterprise in the Boundary
will probably be consummated
at Cascade in the near future.
There will be plenty of ore
produced in the Boundary
country and in the northern
portion of the Pierre lake district to more than supply all
the requirements and possibilities at Northport, and iu order to work the Boundary and
Republic ores jointly, the biggest smelter of the whole
country will be placed at Cascade, where the least expense
is found in delivery, and the
best water power facilities are
botainable. The incoming of
the Great Northern can but
be of great benefit in more ways
than one to Cascade, and will
be the means of lifting it out
of the slough of despond in
which it has struggled the
past year or two, and leading
it into the highway of prosperity. The new railway, too,
will be the means of the
growth of a town across the
line near here which will not
detract from the growth of
Cascade, but be a helper.
Good times for all parts of the
Boundary country are in store
and will be disbursed to us
the coming summer.
The work of reorganizing the
Cascade Board of Trade was successfully accomplished last Monday
night. A new constitution and
set of by-laws were adopted, and
money raised to pay the Associated
Boards fee of $25. The officers
of the temporary organization
were made permanent for the year,
and the institution is now in good
working order, and every ablebod-
ied male citizens of Cascade should
show his interest in public affairs
by enrolling his name on the--membership list. The membership fee
is so small it cannot bur any one.
It is proposed to discuss railway
matters at the regular meeting next
Monday night, and memorulize
The past week that braying
Houston asininity has served the
purpose of the See Pee Arr and the
government in postponing action
in railway matters at Victoria.
Apparently the government is determined to defend the "free-band',
proposition just us far as possible,
and if it cannot save the whole
province to the great Canadian
monopoly, to at least give it an
equal footing in uny new railway
scheme in which outsiders are interested, This opinion is held by
many, and corroberated here by a
new survey which taps the C. P. R.
linenenr the station. It now looks
as though .Mr. Hill and Mr.
Shaughnessy were going to run on
the same rails from Cascade to
A Narrow Escipe Prom Fire.
Last Thursday, Mr. D. D. Ferguson came very near losing his home
by lire. After leaving the house
just after the dinner hour, he soon
hud occasion to return, when he
discovered that the cover of his
"air tight" Btove had been blown
off and ashes in every direction.
On further investigation he found
the pipes a lire above the ceiling
which would have terminated in a
sirious conflagration had it not
been discovered in time.
The first of this month reduced
rateB went into effect on the western
divisions of the C. P. R., 20 per
cent on an average. That is a substantial gain for the people, and 110
loss to the railway company, for
there will be more travel on account
of the reduction.

Sixty Men lo lie Uranby an Hmlst a Good
The sixty or seventy miners who
have been quarantined in the Granby apartment house, on aocount of
the few mild cases of Varioloid, are
enjoying themselves to the uttermost. Those afflicted have been
isolated in the old log bunkhouse,
and the men in the Granby, well
and healthy as can be, have nothing to do but eat, sleep and kill
time. Among them are several
leaders who are making the most
of their enforced isolation, namely,
Messrs. Chandler, Baker, McDonald and others.
Three times, a day the men assemble to the call of the bugle, with
military precision, and march to
the Old Ironsides hotel, also quarantined. Often they keep step
with the music (?) of an improvised
band. It is needless to remark
that the music is fearful and wonderful. Afternoon teas are held at
5 p. m., and the evening concert
occurs from 8 to 9 p. m. Last Sun -
day, after dining, an impromptu
Salvation Army service wae held,
the collection not being overlooked.
One evening about 20 of them
up pea red in burnt cork and gave a
minstrel performance for the benefit of those assembled outside the
line of quarantine. Tommy Hogan,
mi one occasion, was dressed up lo
represent, Mrs. Carrie Nation, and
curried the ever present hatchet,
which has done such execution back
in "bleeding Kansas."
Next Wednesday, the 16 days nf
quarantine will be over, when the
men will be liberated, if no fre-.it
cases occur.���Phoenix Pioneer.
A Wise Mas Prom tbe West
Who intends going East will see
that his tickets read by way of Salt
Lake City and the Rio Grande
Western Railway in connection
with either the Denver & Rio
Grande or Colorado Midland railroads, for these reasons: First,
most magnificent scenery; in America, en route; second, choice of
three distinct routes through the
heart of the Rocky Mountains;
third, it iB the only transcontinental line passing directly through
quaint and picturesqe Salt Lake���-
the City of the Saints; Fourth, perfect dining car sorvice; Fifth, three
fast through trains daily between
Ogden, Denver and all points East,
connecting with all trains of the
Southern Pacific, Oregon Railway
& Navigation company and Oregon
Short Line; sixth, through Pullman Palace and Ordinary Sleeping
oars from San Francisco, Portland,
etc., to Denver, Omaha and Chicago. There are many other reasons why the route through Salt
Lake City over the Rio Grande
Western Railway is the most comfortable and enjoyable in the whole
country. By inquiry, you can
learn a great deal on the subject of
transcontinental travel. J. I).

'Recent reports from the Big Iron,
-situated near the head of Pierre
���oreek, -on the Reservation, have
���been -encouraging. It was known
that they were working in an immense body of ore, but its value as
reported is cheerful news to the district. Assays from the samplings
from the crosscut at the 40-foot
level for each day for five days, on
���seven feet of the ledge resulted in
an average of $13.79, running as
high as 152.07. The ore is arsenical iron, and the values in the last
samples were divided as follows :
440.40 gold, 78o silver, 10.89 copper.

Men SsNttsr Talk.
J. C. Drewry, general manager of
(he Canadian Gold Fields, Limited,
announced yesterday that a New
York capitalist bad gone thoroughly into the conditions prevailing in
East Kootenay and had undertaken
to erect a smelter of 1,000 daily
-capacity at a point east of Kootenay Landing on the completion of
���the Crow's Nest Southern road says
the Nelson Miner.
Intimations to this effect have
already leaked out but definite information has not hitherto been
forthcoming. The capitalist in
question is Mr. Hyams, who was
largely interested in the American
Smelting and Refining trust. When
the trust bought out the Guggenheim interests in South America,
Mr. Hyams disagreed with his colleagues and pulled out of the trust,
receiving for his interest a sum
stated to be six millions cash. He
is looking for an investment, and
satisfied himself on a recent tour of
the East Kootenay country that the
���opening for a smelter there was
very promising if the railroad competition necessary to render it a
success was forthcoming. The
Crow's Nest Southern will fill this
want, and the claim is made by the
.interests which are backing the
granting of the charter that one of
the first good effects to be felt as
the result of the advent of the com
petitive railroad will be tbe estab
liehment of this large and important industry. It is understood that
the location of the new smelter is
practically determined, but no an
nouncement has been made to this
.effect as yet.
