THE CASCADE RECORD
Published In the Interests of the Boundary and Christina Lake  Mining Districts
Vol. I.
CASCADE, B. C, JUNE 24, 1899.
No. 33.
BACK FROM SIMILKAMEEN
Alex McDonald Spent a Couple of Months
in that Famous Camp.
SAYS HUNDREDS ARE NOW THERE
Made a Location Not far From Princeton, and
It Ii Now Being Worked ��������� Copper Mountain a Forest of Stakes.
Alex McDonald, one of the proprietors of the Grand Central hotel
in this city, has just returned from
atrip to mining camps well on
went of here. He was gone exactly
two months, and tramped over a
goodly part of the Similkameen.
district, which he says is one of
marvellous mineral possibilities���
when transportation gets there.
Hundreds cf prospector* are now
in there, and some of them are
making promising locations. The
recording office is at Granite, six
miles above Princeton. The latter
place, located at the junction of the
Tullameen and Similkameen, is
growing to be a place of considerable importance, and every prospector heads for there.
Mr. MpDonald made a location
a��oup1eof miles from Princeton
on the wagon road, from which he
has brought some nice looking copper samples. He left Archie Grant
and Jim Darcy there to do some
work on the property. He Rays
that the famous Copper mountain
is fairly covered with stakes.
Dominion Day at the Forks.
Extensive preparations are being
made to celebrate Dominion Day
at Grand Porks, and a large number are arranging to attend from
Cascade. The baseball club from
Cascade will not attend, not hav-
ing sufficient time to practice.
The committee in charge of the
celebration are leaving no stone
unturned to make the event a most
successful one. Evidently the
races will be well worth going a
long distance to see, as some fast
horses are now on the way to the
Forks. The music will he by the
new Grand Forks Brass Band.
The celebration will be held on
both Saturday and Monday, July
1st and 3d. Cascade should have
a large turnout there.
In the New Postofflce.
Thursday evening Postmaster
Angus Cameron moved the boxes
and fittings from the Pioneer store,
where it has been since it was first
opened, to the new building a few
doors west of its old location, built
especially for the purpose. The
new office is roomy and conveniently arranged for the public, as
well as for the clerks who must do
the work. It is to he hoped that
hereafter the Columbia Stage Co.
will not carry sacks by here as
often as in the past. The new telephone office, to be opened in a few
days, will he in the same building,
with a sound-proof cabinet.
IN  AND AROUND CASCADE.
William Lynch and two children
left for Ellensburg, Wash., yesterday.

J. L. Bertois has been delivering
piles at the site of the big bridge,
to be driven in place of those
washed out.
Al. Stewart came down from
Christina lake Wednesday, with
one of the finest strings of trout
taken this season.
The Kettle river is steadily going
down, and unless there are heavy
rains there will probably be no
more high water this season.
There is talk of organizing a
tennis club in Cascade. Those interested will please communicate
with the publisher of the Record.
Constable Darraugh, who had
leave of absence to visit his old
home at Burton City this week, is
expected to return to Cascade tonight.
Wm. Wolverton made a trip to
Gladstone and the Burnt Basin
this week, and was greatly pleased
with the result of his investigations
in a mineral way.
S. F. Quinlivan, of the Club
hotel, has bought out his partner,
W. J. Ross, and will hereafter conduct the house on his own account.
Mr. Ross has gone to Idaho.
The sawmill is getting out a
supplementary order of 70,000 feet

W. T. Thompson, an old resident
of the Boundary, and owner of the
new townsite of Beaverton, died of
heart failure last Friday on the.
trail, while en route from Midway

Wm. Robinson, the well known
prospector, and Miss Mandy La-
valley were married at Rossland a
few days since. Mrs. Robinson is
now visiting her father at his home
on Christina lake.
Miners, prospectors and others
interested in the Kettle river section above Rock creek, will be
glad to know that work has been
started on the government roads
which are to he built up the main
and west fork of Kettle river.
It is understood, when the high
water season is over, and work is
once more started on the big dam
above the cascades of Kettle river,
that operations on the tunnel,
flume, power house and pole lines
will be undertaken at the same
time.
Alex, M. Lupfer, engineer in
charge of the survey for the new
railway into Republic, spent Tuesday in Cascade, and stated there
was nothing definite in regard to
the contract for the building of
that road. The survey is nearly
completed.
IT BLEW IP 51-2 TONS
Powder Magazine at the Long Tunnel
Went Sky High.
CAUSED BY A FIRE IN THE WOODS
Not a Man Was Hurt, Safety Being Found In
the Tunnel���Latest News from All Along
the New Line.
Last Monday the powder magazine at thelongtunnel, noar Brooklyn, exploded, but fortunately no
one was hurt. There were about
100 boxes of giant powder on hand
and some 200 barrels of black powder, which of course all went off,
about five and a half tons in all.
It appears that there was a
brush tire running, which was getting dangerously near the powder
house, and orderB were given to
carry the powder up to the railway
track. While this was in progress,
it was seen that it could not be
saved, and the men fled to the
safety of the tunnel. The powder
magazine first blew up, followed
by a second explosion of the explosive carried to the track.
The explosion demolished the
magazine, blew the roofs from several cabins and tore the side from
the engine house, a short distance
away. It also twisted the rails on
the track. In Brooklyn. 4 miles
away, the few people left thought
the town had been visited by an
earthquake, although it was not
felt or heard at the other end of
the tunnel. It. is moat fortunate
that no more serious damage was
done.
On the Railway Work.
Four engines are now in use by
the contractors in track-laying
work.
On the spurs to Deadwood and
Summit camps there is much activity in the way of construction.
Jas. V. Welch, the railway contractor, was in town Sunday. He
has about 60 men at work on the
branch line to the B. C. mine,
where he has a couple miles of rock
work.
The track-layers are now this
side of Gladstone, but on account
of the 15 bridges between that town
and Cascade, are making hut slow
progress. Nevertheless, Jack Stewart figures the rails will be here
before the end of July.
Contractor Sandgrin will this
next week complete the grading
which he has had charge of near
Columbia. This will be the last
of the grading from Robson to
Greenwood. From Greenwood to
Midway, the end of the contract,
the grading is also well advanced
and will soon be completed.
McLean Bros, have pulled out
from the big tunnel, and the work
is now in charge of Olof Olson,
who has a force of 120 men at
work. Over 1000 feet have been
bored  so. far,  nearly 700 at the
western end and 300 al the east
end. The air compressor is working well and 12 drills are being
used constantly.
Close of Public School.
Certificates were granted yesterday in the public school to Minnie
Haegerman, for profipiencv in general work; to Ralph Wolverton,
for Deportment, and to Jennie
McRae for attendance. School
will open again some time in Aug-
ust.and it is hoped the new building
will be ready for use.
At the regular election for school
trustees held this noon, Wm. Wolverton, D. D. Ferguson and Paul
Rochussen were chosen.
On Sutherland Creek Bridge.
The Porter Bros, bridge gang,
which are camped at the Sutherland creek bridge site, consists of
about 40 men, in charge of Billy
Wall, a man of experience in this
line. The pile driving outfit is
also at this point, putting in its
heavy licks. While this crossing
will be pushed to early completion,
it will doubtless take some little
time to get everything in place so
that the rails can he laid.
Close to Death's Door.
Elie Lavalley, shortly after returning to his home on the lake
last Wednesnay was taken ill and
until the next morning his life was
despaired of. The best medical assistance was had, both from Cascade and the Forks, and he is now
improving. Archie Lavalley, Mb
son, was also very ill, but is now
reported on a fair way to recovery.
LOCAL AND GENERAL.
D. W. Mooie, ore buyer for the
Trail smelter, was in town yesterday.

The Flyer Co., is the nane of the
new corporation operating the
stage line of that name. Its
directors are G. W. Hutchine, J I.
Daniel and J. C. Hill, with F. M.
Hallett as general manager. The
stages meet both trains at Bossburg, and run to Grand Forks.
Last Sunday morning fire destroyed the Clareddon and International hotels at Greenwood. The
loss is estimated at $16,000, with
insurance of less than half. The
fire originated in the Clarendon,
owned by D. W. Morgan, who is
a partner of V. Monnier of Cascade. Mr. Morgan's loss is about
$3,500. The volunteer fire department is said to have done excellent
service. THE   CASCADE  RECORD

Old Wreck Had a Hot Time.
The paper was late, and the
make-up was dumping matter in
the forms at the rate of a column
a minute. Result: the first part of
an obituary had heen dumped in
the form, and the next handful of
type came off a galley describing a
fire. It read like this in the newspaper: "The pall-bearer lowered
the body into the grave, and it was
consigned to the roaring flames.
There were very few, if any regrets,
for'the old wreck had been an eyesore to the town for years. The
loss was fully covered by insurance."

niNES AND MINING |
��� l
Brief Bit* Prom Many Camps. S
On the Mystery, in the Burnt
Basin, Superintendent Littlejohn
now has the tunnel driven in about
130 feet.
Chas. Sandner, who came down
from English Point on Monday,
Bays the tunnel on the Victoria is
now in some 25 feet.
The B. C. mine in Summit camp,
besides having $200,000 in ore on
the dump, is said to have 20,000
tons of $25 ore in Bight in the mine.
The Rathmuller Co., up the
north fork of Kettle river, is building a wagon road from the mine to
the river, to get in the machinery.
Olson & Phelan are sinking a
shaft on the King Solomon, near
Beaverton, and work is being done
on a number of other properties.
The owners of the Crescent,
Canadian and Kankakee claims
contemplate building a wagon road
to their properties in Skylark
camp.
Harry Denton has begun work
on the Golden Crown, en McRae
creek, about two miles from Gladstone. It is a gold-copper proposition.
The Crescent, in Skylark camp,
is to be worked at once. A shaft
will i<e Bunk on the smaller lead to
the 100-foot level, and a crosscut
driven to tap the larger lead.
The Summit Gold Mining Co.,
operating in Summit camp, has
bought the Toledo and Delta
claims, adjoining the Main, upon
which a force has been at work for
Borne time.
Bruce Craddock of Trail is working on the Laura B. in Skylark
camp, and showing up some good
pyrrhotite ore. The adjoining
claim, the Olga, is also looking
ing well under development.
Since the 200-foot level was
reached with the double compartment shaft on the Mother Lode, in
Deadwooii Camp, nearly 600 feet
of crosscuts have been run from
the bottom of tbe shaft, in four
different directions.
Fred Giibi has returned from a
month's trip to Crawford bay, on
Kootenay lake. He has been doing assessments on some promising
gold copper claims. He will now
turn his attention to properties
close to Cascade.
In eight days, on the Montreal
market, it is Haiti the stock in the
great Payne mine, in the Slocan,
fell $1.10 per share, representing a
depreciation in the value of that
property of $1,100,000 since the
eight-hour law went into effect.
Underground work on the Golden Crown, in Wellington camp, has
been stopped pending the installation of the 60 horse power boiler
and engine and the 5-drill air compressor. The shaft will then he
continued to the 300-foot level.
The company has $25,000 in the
treasury.
Dsniel Mann, tbe railway contractor, expect8 soon to organize a
mining company with $5,000,000
capital to take over and develop
al! his properties, including the
North Star, near Ft. Steele, and
his Greenwood camp mines, including the Brooklyn, Stemwinder,
Idaho, Rawhide and others. It
will be known as the Dominion
Copper Co.

The Cascade Record will be sent
to any place in Canada or the

PROFITABLE BOUNDARY INVESTMENTS.
It is a somewhat remarkable
state of affairs, that, although not
a mine in the entire Boundary region is yet shipping regularly,
there seems to he no let-up to the
steady flow of capital into the mineral claims of this district. Without shipments and therefore without dividends, the eastern capitalist seems to be thoroughly satisfied
with the outlook and the chances
of. getting good returns on his investments in this section of mi rvel-
lous mineral possibilities.
At first it was the immense
ledges of the Boundary creek proper and its immediate surrounding
camps that attracted monied men
and untied their purse strings.
Then, as the hardy prospector
pushed into the mineral blessed
hills, the North Fork of Kettle
river came to the front, followed
rapidly by Christina lake and
Burnt Basin, a�� well as other
camps more distant. In these and
many others conservative capital
is now seeking investment. The
banks of Eastern Canada and
England, to say nothing of those
of the United Slates, have plenty of
cash to put into properties of merit,
and they are putting it in.
We are now in the first stages of
development���in our swaddling
clothes, as it were The mo��t enthusiastic and the most optimistic
of our citizens cannot begin to foresee the.growth that is beyond a
doubt in store for us. Those who
stay right.hy the district, through
thick and thin, will not fail to receive their reward in due course of
tune.
of matter verbatim from the
Record, and the same appeared
later in a coast paper credited to
the Kootenay journal, it is crowding the mourners just a trifle. It
would simplify matters if the
Record would furnish the type entire or make "tereos and send them
around.
As the Sun remarks, credit is
sometimes superfluous, as iu the
case of small single items of general information, but modern newspapers ethics has yet to commend
wholesale theft like that above
mentioned. If coaBt papers, addicted to the habit referred to, are
unable to pay for correspondence,
the least they can do is to credit
matter appropriated.
THERE IS A DIFFERENCE.
The Cascade Record fom plains
that ''the Kootenay and Yale ps-
pers are a go i-send to the dailies
published at the coast. Otherwise
they would have no source from
which to filch fresh mining news���
the best kind of news in this fast
developing province." The Sun,
as a "coast" paper, rises to remark
that it credits exchange items of
mining and general news always
��o the source from which it springs.
Credit, the Record will admit, is
sometimes superfluous.���New Westminister Sun.
The Sun is one of those papers,
it is pleasant to note, that, by its
exception, proves the rule. But
when, as was the case, recently, -a-
Kootenay paper copied  a column
Above all other things British
Columbia's chief industry is mining, and the mining laws should
he framed with the greatest discretion. Major Albert H. Haider, F.
G. S., special mining commissioner
to Reuter's Telegram Company,
who is now on his way to the Klondike, was interviewed at Victoria,
and was of the opinion that the act
has "been framed by men whose
experience, if any, was based on
knowledge gained forty years ago
and who are utterly ignorant of
up-to-date requirements" Evidently the major does not believe
in the annual tinkering of the mineral act, especially when he contemplates the final resnlt. There
are others of a similar mind.

As a matter of fact, Grand Forks

place in the Boundary should or
can properly be so called, and that
is Cascade.
Cascade is now 62 hours from
Winnipeg, 102 hours from Toronto,
106 hours from Montreal and 118
hours from New York, since the
inauguration of the "Imperial Limited" on the C. P. R., last Sunday.
In a short time, with the completion of our new railway this time
will be considerably reduced. This

rAYSIDE   I
BY THE WAYSIDE
tKttftftlUM*ftttttftlt<K
If it were not so serious as well
as silly, the fight at present waging
with renewed virulence hetween
the townsites of Columbia and
Grand Forks would have a large
element of humor about it. Especially was this the case last Friday, when specials from the Forks
went outside of their own incorporation to.arrest residents of Columbia, and were themselves arrested
by specials in the upper town-
resulting in such a mix-up that
hardly anyone knew where he was
in the matter.
The recent outbreak was a result
of the seising of the furniture of
the Columbia hotel, which was
purchased on time from a Grand
Forks dealer. One thing led to
another and the feud grew and
waxed strong. Now it is being
aired in the courts, but it can hardly he of benefit to Columbia, whichever way it turns out. The residents of Columbia are hy no means
united among themselves, but seem
to he having a sort of Kilkenny
cat time in addition to their other
troubles. At least this is stated to
he the case hy the local organ, the
Review, which unmercifully scores
certain individuals in its last issue,
and shows evidence of preparing to
give up the ghost as far as that
town is concerned.
It was most gratifying to the
managers of the British Columbia
Mercantile and Mining Syndicate,
Ltd., of this city, to note, the other
day, that for the month ending
June 15th, their cash receipts were
17 per cent larger than the best
previous month since the store was
established. While competition is
keener and there are more in the
business than last fall, it has been
a gradual improvement with the
B. C. store. The head officials in
London can hardly fail also to be
pleased with such a report.
The date of the arrival of the
new railway track continues to be
the theme of much discussion iu
local circles. At the present writing the steel gang is less than 15
miles by the grade from Cascade,
but there is a bridge to be built
for nearly every mile of that grade.
Most of the bridge timbers must
come from the mill at West Robson, as the contractors' sawmill,
which was located at Gladstone,
could find suitable timber enough
to cut but 1,000,000 feet of the 2,-
000,000 required on bridges and
trestles between Gladstone and
Cascade. This requisite bridge
building now means delay to the
tracklaying, which it is now estimated will reach the Gateway City
hetween July 15th and August 1st.
���^
Here is what F. W. Peters, C. P.
R., freight agent, at Nelson, 'writes
in regard to this matter, under date
of June 16th:
"We cannot attempt to handle
any freight for Cascade or other
points in the interior until our
track is into your town, as the
wagon road from Gladstone is not
in condition to haul freight, hut
just as soon as it reaches Cascade
our president advises me it will he
turned over to the operating department and we can then take
freight not only for Cascade but
Greenwood and all points, which
would greatly reduce the present
cost of delivering freight at these
points. The latest advice I have
is that the rails should reach Cascade sometime after the middle of
July and not later than 1st of
August."
Anyone who has not taken a
trip up to the new dam, during the
high water, and observed its beauties as it tumbles and rushes
through the narrow gorge, forming
the ffiagnificient cascades from
which this place gets its name, is
missing a spectacle worth seeing.
The water is going down now, and
only about 14 feet is going over the
dam, but it is still one of nature's
wonders that is enjoyed by many
who appreciate true grandeur.
-%-
"I believe that the first pound of
ore to be smelted in the Boundary
country, will be smelted right here
in Cascade," said a gentlemen this
week in the office of the Record.
Continuing, he said: "I fully believe that there is no doubt whatever but that the proposed C. P. R.
reduction works will eventually be constructed at this point. It
is known by competent engineers
and smelter experts that, beyond
all question, no such location for
an enterprise exists elsewhere in
the length and breadth of the
Boundary district. It may take a
little time to work it out satisfactorily, but it will surely come that
way in the end."   This was from
a man well posted and one who believes in looking at things as they
are, not as he would like them to
he. We give the opinion for what
it is worth.

McLellan, arrived from Nelson last

MORE BUILDINO IN CASCADE.
Qalte a Number of New Structures, to be
Erected at Once.
Cascade continues to grow slowly
but in a substantial way, and this
summer will see quite a number of
new buildings erected in town.
The school trustees have been advised by Alex. Robinson, superintendent of instruction, that the
provincial lands and works department will proceed at once with the
work on the new school building.
It will be remembered that the
government this year set aside
$1,500 for school purposes in Cascade. This should provide a commodious and comfortable building.
Requests for tenders are expected
any day.
In addition to the residence to
be erected at once by Stanley May-
all, Thomas F. Carden, alno of the
B. C. store, has purchased a plot
near the Rochussen residence, and
will build thereon without delay.
He is expecting Mrs. Carden from
England in a few weeks.
It is the intention to begin work
on the new Presbyterian church as
soon as possible.
D. D. Ferguson is finishing his
building on Main street, near the
Record office.
The McLeod residence has been
completed and is now being occupied by the purchasing agent and
his wife.
It is expected also that work on
the  new railway  passenger  and
freight station will be commenced
at an early date.
Repairs on the new building on
Frst street east, to be used by Collector Rose as a customs houre, are
being pushed, and when completed
will be much more commodious for
those having business there.

Sam McOrmond came down
from Eholt last Thursday, and
visited Gladstone, where he is interested in the Victoria hotel. He
has been conducting a boarding
house at Eholt, and will soon erect
a 30x50 three-story hotel there,
having the lumber on the ground
now. No lots have been sold yet,
but are expected to be on the market July 1st. Ssm seems to think
Eholt will be quite a place for
some time, nnd that there will be a
rush in there.
And He Settled Promptly.
"Can you tell me what sort of
weather we may expect next
month," wrote a subscriber to the
editor of a paper, and the editor
replied as follows: "It is my belief that the weather next month
will be very much like your subscription." The inquirer wondered
for an hour what the editor was
driving at, when he happened to
think of the word "unsettled." He
sent in the required amount next
day.

THE CASCADE RECORD
REDUCTION IN PRICE OF DOMINION LANDS.
Those ia the Railway Belt,  Not Qood tor
Agriculture or Timber.
The following is the contents of
the order-in-council relating to the
reduction of the price of lands in
the railway belt. The change is a
most useful one and merits general
appreciation.
"All lands of the Dominion
which may be for sale from time to
time within the railway belt containing minerals within the meaning of the Mineral Act (It. C.,) not
being Indian reserves or settlements and portions thereof, and
not being under license or lease
from the Dominion government,
ahull be open to purchase by the
provincial government at the price
of $5 per acre," that from time to
time, since the passing of that order, it has been represented that
the price is an excessive one to
charge for such lands, and that
amongst other communications In
that effect which are on file in the
Department of the Interior is a
copy of the despatch of the 30th
March, 1894, of His Honor the
Lieut.-Governor of British Columbia, and of a report of a committee
of the Executive council of that
province of the 20th February,
1894, which are referred to in the
order-in-council of the 21st May,
1894, whereby it was decided that
the application of the provincial
government could not be complied
with, as, although the lands within
the railway belt in that provider
and all minerals therein, except
the precious metals, belong to the
Dominion, and although the province obtained a revenue from tht
issue of free miners' licenses to
mine thereon, the Tirily revenue
whioh was derived therefrom by
the Dominion was the price, eo objected to, of $5 per acre.
The minister further states that
since the last mentioned order
passed, further applications for a
reduction in the price of such lands
have heen received in the Department of the Interior, and that
recently it ha* been represented to
him that where these lands are not
valuable for agricultural purposes
or for the timber growing thereon,
the price thereof should be reduced
to $1 per acre.
The minister, although adhering
to the decision that $5 per acre is a
reasonable price for these lands
generally, has concluded that a
reduction may fairly he made to
41 per acre underthecircumstancei-
mentioned in the application lastly
above referred to. and he, the mill-
ilister, therefor recommends that
where such lands are of no value
,for agricultural purposes or for the
timber growing thereon, the price
thereof he reduced to $1 per acre.
if the written application, to be
furnished under paragraph [c] of
the Order of 11th February, 1890,
is accompanied by a solemn declaration, which is to be made by a
Dominion or Provincial land sur
veyor, in accordance with the provisions of the "Canada Evidence
Act, 1893," and in which, after the
surveyor's name and residence have
heen given in full, it is stated (1)
that he has examined the lands
which a re the subject of the application; and (2) that such lands are of
no value for cultivating or for
the timber growing thereon.
The committee submit the same
for your excellency's approval.

Clerk of the Privy Council.
