How the Gladstone Visitors  Were   Enter,
tallied���Other Notes.
The concert on Saturday night
afforded the inmates of some of our
homes, in entertaining those who
came down from Gladstone to assist, an opportunity to display that
open hospitality for which they are
noted. Misses Minnie mid Pearl
Grant were the guests of Mr. and
Mrs. Stocker, Miss Annie Grant of
Miss Darrow, and Mr. Ira Gram,
Mr. Trotter, Mr. Plewman and Mr.
Stewart were the guests of that trio
of hospitable bachelors, Mr. R.
Kelman, Mr. George Ritchie, and
Rev. K. W. Barton.
Sunday was a pleasant day for
visitors and entertainers, despite
the heat. All the visitors were out
to Sunday school in the morning, I
and the lesson on "Peter's Confession 11 ml Christ's Rehuke" was
studied with much interest. Six of
the visitors took luncheon at the
home of Messrs. Kelman, Ritchie,
and Barton. The afternoon was
spent by some* in reading, and by
others in friendly converse up by
the cool spray and shade of the
dam and railway bridge.
After dinner all attended church
services. Afterwards they gathered
on the spacious verandas of Laurel
Ridge, Mr. and Mrs. Stocker's beautiful home, and spent the rest of
the evening in conversation and
singing hymns.
On Monday Mr. and Mrs. Stocker,
in addition to their other guests,
entertained at luncheon all the
visitors, and Messrs. Kelman,
Ritchie, and Barton. It was a
merry party that sat about their
hospitable board, and did ample
justice to (he beautifully prepared
cold lunch. The visitors left on the
afternoon train expressing themselves as delighted with Cascade
and its people. Their entertainers
more than reciprocated this feeling,
and parted from them with regret,
tempered, however, by the hope that
they will soon again accept their
pressing invitation to visit Cascade
There has been no lack of successful efforts nt entertainment
in local society circles during the
past week. Prominent among the
many pleasant occasions was the
dinner parly at tbe residence of
Mr.and Mrs. Joseph H.MacDonald,
Saturday evening last, where a
most sumptuous repast was partaken of by a few of the many
friends of the host and hostess.
Thursday night the festive bachelors of the Y. M.C. A. planned and
executed a flank movement by
which means they captured a dozen
or so of Cascade's citizens and imprisoned them on Santa Catnlina
island in Ihe Kettle river near the
big railway bridge, to which place
they were actually firmly held and
carried in the arms of their captors.
Here the prisoners were required to
sit on the beach and eat two ham
"andwiches, two biscuits, two pieces
of cuke, a pie, and drink two cups
ot tea. Just about dark, however,
the young bachelor hearts relaxed
their rigidity,and tbe prisoners were
transported to the mainland and
liberated, when they fled to their
several homes, finally realizing they
had enjoyed a pleasant excursion
and basket picnic, through the kind
and laborious painstaking of the
inmates of the Bachelors Home.
Mr. John Simpson, Principal of
the Cascade public school, will return here this evening from Nelson
where he passed his vacation. He
will be accompanied by his sister,
Mrs. Morrison, wife of Alderman
Morrison of Nelson, who, with another sister, Mrs. E. W. Stuart, of
Grand Forks, will occupy the
Stuart residence at the foot of Christina lake for a few weeks. Mrs.
Morrison will be accompanied by
her two children.
Miss Pearl Grant of Gladstone
and Miss Agnes Miller of Grand
Forks obtained second class, grade
A, certificates at the recent teachers' examination. These certificates
will be valid for five years. No
other candidates from the Boundary wrote at the examination.
Mr B. F. Vancleve, who went to
Spokane a few days since, writes
us that instead of coming back in
a couple of days as he first thought
to do, he has taken a notion to go
east and visit his brothers in Iowa.
He says he will return in about
two months.

Train and Bridge Wrecked on the S. F. & N.
A high bridge on .the Spokane
Falls & Northern railroad, near
the Marcus hill, between Marcus
and Myers Falls, collapsed under a
freight train about 6:45 p. m. Monday, and an engine and four cars
loaded with wood went down into
the .gulch. Engineer Bacon and
the fireman were both severely injured and were not expected to
live. The bridge is almost a total
wreck. It is expected to he repaired
by to-morrow. During that time
the night trains between Rossland
and Spokane have been discontiii
ued, and passengers on the day
trains transferred.
The fallen trestle was the first
north of Myers Falls, and was
about 100 feet high and 300 to 400
feet long. The train, which consisted of 26 cars, was unloading
timbers to rebuild it and was barely moving when the bridge went
down beneath it. The engineer and
fireman stuck to their places and
fell 50 to 75 feet, together with the
engine, two cars of slulls and two
cars  of cord wood.
Mrs. Horace Kimball and her
young daughter Kathleen, who have
been guests at Laurel Ridge the past
three weeks, returned to their home
in Spokane to-day.
Attorney Cahley of Grand Forks
was iri Cascade yesterday attending
to some legal business in connection
with the B. C. M. & M. Syndicate.

British Columbia Mercantile and Mining Syn.
We regret having to announce
that the holder of the debentures
issued by the British Columbia
Mercantile& Mining Syndicate here
has considered ii advisable to forecloses the estate, and has formally
taken possession. The manager has
cabled London for instructions as
to how best to deal with the unencumbered portion of the estate in
the interests generally of creditors
and shareholders. As a going concern the assets considerably exceed
the liabilities, though a forced realization of the security above mentioned may upset the normal balance. It is difficult to say at this
moment whether or not the business will be re-organized, and possibly a fortnight must elapse
before concise statements can be
made in that connection. The trade
liabilities are comparatively small,
having been reduced $20,000 dur-
the year, and since the present
manager came into office, two or
three months ago, hardly any
goods whatever have been added to
stock. The business will be continued for the present in the interests of the debenture holder.
A large party of pleasure seekers
from Grand Forks enjoyed themselves last Sunday on Christina

Tbe Fate of Foreign Legations Still la Doubt,
But Their Extermination Feared.
The information to hand regarding Chinese matters is plentiful but
so thoroughly unreliable that it

original reports relative to the fate
of the foreigners in Pekin are true

powers sit like a dog in the manger
growling and snarling at each

Scheming for time aud to cover
their real intentions, the Chinese
authorities have appealed simultaneously to all the allied powers for
mediatory aid. Russia and Fran < e

any definite manner. They are

into northern Chinese territory. It
is even claimed that Russia all

Young Mr. George Cornwallis
West is ill. His friends say thut
his sight is affected and his mind
failing. They say the cause is the
heat, and the effect a desire to marry Lady Randolph Churchill, who
is old enough to he his mother, and
whom they playfully term "the
baby snatcher." Georgie's ma has
got her mad up and so have the
Churchill crowd, and it. all looks
more like n lyddite and pom-pom
match than the mating of "two
'souls with hut a single thought,
two hearts that heat as one." All
I'm wondering ahout is just exactly what 'little Handy"���who wasn't
little at all���would say if he suddenly come to life again.
And anyhow, its hot enough to
turn any man blind-crazy, and yet
hy all that's sultry���Aden. Hell

Phoenix. B. C. named Weeks���

his hostelry is "heated with hot

a picture of some very pretty

Came up tlie street mid lane,
Ami Kruger took' his capital
And tossed it on the train.
And then he pulled his throttle,
And shot off like a star,
With Capitol and capital
Aboard a special car."
And so hy that means have I
learned at last the meaning of yet
one more American idiom which
has long puzzled me, and, indeed,
caused me to lay awake many weary
nights seeking a solution. For I
once heard one gaudy and godless
being, speaking evil of aii"ther,
say, "He's a--of a ��� on wheels."
And now the scales have fallen
from my eyes and 1 know who and
what he meant���it was Paul Kruger.
Simultaneously, in ahout half a
dozen papers in the Province, people calling themselves ''Pro bono

and "Junius," and other nice names
are complaining ahout the numbers
of mangy curs roaming the cities

As Secretary of the Canine Defense
League of Great Britain, I think
I have met every species of dog
ciank known to medical or mathematical sciences and "plus je connais
les hommes,plusj'aimeles chiens." But
in this country, at any rate, I sympathise with Pro bono publico &
Co. The dogs' only redeeming
quality is their religious upbringing. For whether "mongrel, puppy,
whelp or hound or cur of low degree," the "sign of the cross" is
their most conspicuous characteristic, but what 1 am most deeply
thankful for is that the'wandering
and half-ownerless dogs wern't Lorn

like the cows and cayuses all seem
to be.
a diplomat, and can be ignored;
and the man who is such a pel feci
diplomat that no one suspects him
of being one at all, that is the only
sort we are afraid of. Fortunately
for us, England does not produce
that variety; she prefers���foolish
country���to employ stage carpenters." I believe what she said is
still true, but well remember the
scathing reply of the late Secretary
of the Admiralty, when I quoted
this to him. "Tell her from me,"
he said, "that England will in future employ ship-wrights."
"And if I do," I answered, "she

I alluded last week to a Fourth
of July ode by Joaquin Miller. I
rind a gentleman in Victoria,*Mr.
F. Mortimer Kelley, has alluded to
it also pretty considerably in thirteen stanzas of much precision
and ability. Referring to the particular verse quoted here last week,
he replies :
"Hark to that cryl   It wrings our soul-
That tinman cry, borne from the South-
Behold a negro at the goal
Of life, blood dripping from his mouth;
The faggots piled about his feet,
The hungry flames that upward rise,
The frenzied mob which (Ills the street,
The pictured horrors In those eyes,
Which seek-but find no mercy there :
We would not match this if we could;
Wc could not match this if we would;
Almighty God, we fear."
Which ill! goe�� to show that we
each have enough to do putting our
own homestead in order.
Chamfort says, "In the world
you have three sorts of friends���
your friends who love you, your
friends who do not care ahout you,
and your friends who hate you."
Old England has a good many
friends of the two latter species,
and thank goodness she is beginning to know them by their works.
The Daily Chronicle may well say:
"But we're weary of this biz, aud we're sick of it,
we is:
An' 'Pool Britannia' ain't a treat ter sing,
An' we're wishin' for   the time when the old
familiar rhyme
Will dare ter 'ave thet ole familiar ring."
But unfortunately the old leader
of the choir, Benjamin Disraeli,
prince of statesmen and humbugs,
has never been quite replaced; his
successors are .-omehow  ftilsettists.
My first sweetheart was one of
the Ladies in Waiting at the Imperial Palace of St. Petersberg. "To
love her was a liberal education."
And at least I learnt from her
much that has helped me to comprehend the almost invariable
checkmating of our own diplomatic
instruments on the chessboard of
European and Asiatic politics,when
face to face with Russian experts at
the game. She once said to me, and
it is Chamfort'8 dictum that recalls
it now, "There are thiee sorts of
diplomatists���the man who is a
demi-diplomat, and can be guarded
against; the man who thinks he is
The insidiousness, the gentle-
get-there style of the Russian, is
reminiscent of a story a Conway
gentleman named Jones once told
me. He had two evening guests, an
Irishman naniffd O'Brien, and a
Manchestrian called Hobson. Jones
was regaling them on claret���
mighty fine claret too. The Irishman, accustomed to whiskey, did
not take kindly to the milder beverage. Every time he got a chance
he whispered to Hobson. "Don't
think much of Jones' claret," but
still continued to imbibe. After
emptying some few bottles, tbe two
guests departed. Their course lay
for a while together, then at a forked road they said "goo' nigh'" and
O'Brien added with thickening
tones. "Don't shink mush of
Shones's claret ��� hie ��� anyhow."
Twenty minutes later Hobson
heard him calling mournfully for
help. He had fallen into a morass,
and, dirt-bedraggled and miserable,
was near suffocation. His first
words were���"I���h-heg Shones'sh
pardon���hish claret's dam sight
better than I���hie���thought it was."
Well, British and Russian diplomacy occupy the relative positions
of Jones's claret and Irish whiskey;
and another thing is equally sure,
and that is, that one need not judge
Russia's attitude in Chinese matters in the light of her professions,
or in the language of her ministers.
The following is a bona fide advertisement, clipped from the columns of the Liverpool Mercury :

two little boys wishes for more;
terms very moderate. References

woman mean? Anyhow, I distinctly refrain from adding her
Mr. Hallett, late P. M. of Van-
couver, and now of Greenwood, tells
me of an amusing encounter he
recently had with a former acquaintance, A man approached
him, raised his hat and grasping
bis hand remarked with the utmost cordiality. "Well, Hallett,
old man, how are you ?"   "Fine,
thanks,   fine;   I ��� eh ��� remember
your face but forget your name."
"Johnson, sir, Johnson; Andrew
Johnson," returned the man with
some dignity, "You gave me six
months last June for being drunk
and disorderly." It's a funny
world, my masters.
If labour and employers' unions
had spent one tenth of the capital
and energy which they have utilized fighting each other, in joint
action, for their mutual welfare,,
there would be less bitterness and
more prosperity in their respective
associations. I have good reason to
know it. And just i.l present I
learn with some amount of satisfaction, that certain members of
the Miners' Union are beginning
to show considerable attention in
the direction of looking after their
lives and limbs, as well as their
wage list. It is a well-known fact
that certain explosives sold for
mining use in this country, are
controlled by firms selling under a
tariff scale, complicated by hidebound agreements. One at least of
these explosives has been proved,,
time and time again, to be exceptionally disadvantageous and dangerous to employes on account of
the excessive amount of noxious
gas evolved by its combustion. The
price is just, the same as other
and safer powder. Therefore mine
owners have no legitimate excuse
for its use. I have it on good authority that the Miners' Union,
warned at last by repeated examples, and concluding that a man's
life may be almost as important as
the hours of labour, and his reim-
bursment therefor, have at last decided to take the matter in hand.
I am glad of it. A "mucker" need*
his health as badly as any body
else, and some of them in Rossland
and Phoenix are beginning to fii.d

Hon. J. P. Booth, member from
North Victoria, was elected Speaker
of the British Columbia legislative
assembly last Friday. The Island
politicians still insist on acting as
though this province was somewhere within the boundaries of
Vancouver island. The.Boundary
will see to it that it has just representation or it will know why.
It will be well for Sir Wilfrid to
look into this matter while in the
province, for he might fined it possible and profitable in a party sense
to exert an influence to the end that
the Boundary along with the balance of the mainland may be more
justly represented in legislative
matters. The island is no longer
entitled to domineer in the affairs
of the mainland.
Rossland has discovered an eight-
year-old boy murderer. He shot

in that city on May 23d last, the
deed having been shrouded in mystery up to a few days ago.

Engineer Lupfer, in the employ

they are doing some surveying under cover of night.
A mining man named Cameron
was in Cascade last night from
Greenwood. Though he claimed to
have traveled through all the mining countries of tbe world, he admitted that he had been duped by
a drunken and irresponsible person
named McKinuon to come down
here to examine a mining property
which existed only in the delirious
brain of his guide, who was too
much under the influence of liquor
on arriving here to get off the cars,
and Mr. Cameron returned on the

his rich prospects were located.

many ways the coal king premier

magnanimous proposal in the interest of the people becomes measurably dwarfed.
Premier Dunsmuir is being much
lauded for advocating a tax of five
cents per ton on the output of coal,

Welcome Information.
A special despatch from Ottawa
to coast papers says the Dominion
government has been asked by the
Imperial authorities to prepare for
the transportation of a large number of troops and great quantities
of munitions of war across the
continent, with a view to their being employed in the Orient.
This is very important news and
will mean much to British Columbia, and indeed to the whole of
Canada. Troops cannot be transported without being fed and otherwise cared for, and the moment the
movement sets in, bread-stuffs and
other food products will at once begin to move westward to the coaBt.
These supplies and munitions of
war cannot be moved from place
to place without a large expenditure in money for labor and otherwise. British Columbia is about to
become a principal base of operations for what promises to be one
of the greatest military, and perhaps naval, operations in modern
times. The importance of this to
British Columbia can hardly be
overestimated. The effect upon
business of all kinds cannot fail to
be profound.
Robbed While Blinded With Molasses.
The facts are just learned of the
unique manner in which a suburban grocer of Quebec was victimized by two young sharpers a few
days ago. The sharpers walked
into the store, bought a gallon of
molasses for the purpose, they said,
of deciding whether the soft felt
hat of one of them would hold that
quantity. The storekeeper agreed
to act as judge. The molasses was
poured into the hat, but it did not
hold even half a gallon. Thereupon the loser said: "I guess I
lost," and immediately lifted the
hat and clapped it on the head of
the grocer, and while the latter was
rubbing the molasses out of his
eyes the sharpers made away with
$40 contained in the till.
Peace At Any Price.
Two old ladies were next to each
other in a station bus. One of them
wished to have the window shut,
the other to have it open; the conductor was called to decide the
question. One said if it were open
she would catch cold and die; the
other said if it were shut she would
die of apoplexy. The conductor
did not know what to do, when an
old man, who had heen sitting
quiet in a corner, said:
"Open the window, friend; that
will kill one of them.   Then shut
it, and we shall be rid of the other
and have some peace."

If You Wish
To keep thoroughly posted on the fast
moving events in the growing Boundary and Christina Lake sctions, there is
only one way to accomplish it, viz:
Just get in line, follow the
crowd and subscribe to..
5! Cascade Record.
It costs only Two Dollars to get
in out of the wet, and receive 52
copies of the Record. Printed
on good paper with good type
and good ink.
A Social and Financial Success���The Program a Good One and Admirably Rendered.
The concert and entertainment
given on Saturday night in the
church hy the Mutual Aid society
was perhaps the hest Cascade has
had. It was successful in every
point of view, socially, artistically,
and financially, and its promoters
deserve the thanks as well as the
congratulations of our citizens.
The chief attraction was the exquisite whistling of Mrs. Horace
Kimball, wife of Prosecuting Attorney Kimball of Spokane. We have
heard the best lady whistlers before
the public, and think Mrs. Kimball is excelled by none. The skill
and beauty of tone displayed in
her selections elicited much admiration, and the gifted lady had fre-
.quently to acknowledge her hearers applause and desire for more.
Mrs. Kimball's beauty and charm
of manner and personal appearance add much to her whistling.
Miss Kathleen Kimball, dainty
and pretty, sang as she looked.
This little lady of nine, assisted by
Jennie Mac Rae added to the proceeds of the evening, by selling
about forty button hole bouquets,
and also helped the sale of lemonade during the half hour intermission by vending it from trayB
hither and thither among the
pleased people. Mr. John Trotter
captured the audience with his
first recitation, and they were his
willing slaves for the rest of the
evening. He has a good stage
presence, and his elocutionary
powers are of no mean order. Mrs.
Paul Rochussen played the piano
accompaniments, and two ,-iolos, to
the evident enjoyment of all. A
pleasing feature of the evening was
the singing of Misses Annie, Minnie, and Mr. Ira Grant, accompanied on the organ by Miss Pearl
Grant. Mrs. Southam, despite her
71 years of age, was in good voice,
and sang an Irish song with spirit
and expression. The duet by Mr6.
Kimball and Mr. G. K. Stocker,
"Some sweet day" was well received, the rich tones of Mrs. Kimball's full strong voice blending
well with Mr. Stockers fine tenor.
Mr. Stocker's number, a darkey
song, was capitally given. Rev.
Mr. Barton gave two violin solos,
the difficult piano accompaniments
of which were admirably played
by Mrs. Rochussen, adding not a
little to the pleasure that the reverend gentleman's violin performances always afford. The Cascade
Glee Club surpassed its former efforts, and sang its two numbers
with fine swing, precision, and bal-
lance. The club was ably assisted
by Mrs. Kimball, Misses Annie,
Minnie, and Mr. Grant, Mr. Plewman, and Mr. Trotter. Miss Darrow accompanied the club on the
organ. The lemonade was made by
Mrs. G. K. Stocker and Mr. R.
Kelman, and was, as a matter of
course good. Mrs. Stocker, Mrs.
Wolverton and Miss Cameron had
charge of the selling. The total
proceeds amounted to nearly $30.
Mr. Barton presided. In another
column will be found mention of
the social pleasure those assisting
from outside places afforded their

To Boom the Drummer Mines and  Build  a
Town at Curlew.
We have received a copy of issue
No. 7 of tbe "Mining Investment
News," printed and published in
Minneapolis, Minn., in the interest
of the promoters of investment
schemes in Spokane and Curlew���
a townsite boom on a large scale at
the latter point being one of the
main efforts. The promoters style
themselves the "American Mining
Investment Co." A party of ten
from Minnesota and Iowa, were
at Curlew last week, who were
sent out as a committee of investigation by intending investors, or
were some of the original schemers
in the affair. They appeared to be
well pleased with the outlook. The
publication referred to contains full
details of the plans of the company
as well as an exhaustive descriptive
article of the topographical conditions to be viewed from the car-
windows on a trip from Spokane to
Curlew over the Spokane Falls &
Northern and the Columbia &
Western. After describing the
scenery along the route to Robson
Junction, John H. Gallagher, who
is officially titled "Inspector of
Kettle-Curlew," writes: "From this
point we'proceed westward and begin the ascent of the mountains.
This ascent for twelve miles is the
most picturesque I have ever seen.
Winding serpent like along ihe
brow of the mountain, climbing all
the while, until we reach the extreme highest point, making a turn
there, up the draw of the mountain
to the three-mile (3,000 feet) tunnel.
At this point the mountain from
the roadbed to the river is almost
perpendicular. The distance I was
unable to learn, but cite an instance
which came under my observation
that will give an idea of how far up
in the world you will be. Glancing
out of the car-window down on the
beautiful Columbia river, I espied
what I supposed to be a largegoi.se
or Bwan. Being anxious to determine which, I put my glass on the
��� bject, and imagine my surprise
when it turned out to be three men
in an ordinary 20-foot row-boat.
Passing through the tunnel, we arrived at beautiful Christina lake,
located in the heart of the mountains G,030 (1500) feet above the
level of the Columbia, some mile-
and-one-half wide by eight (18)
miles long. The afternoon ride by
this lake, which reflects the surrounding pines and snow-chid (in
the winter) mountains, is one of the
most beautiful scenes to be imagined. Coming down the opposite side
of the mountain again, we strike
Carson City (Cascade City) and obtain our first sight of the Kettle
river. We here find on the Kettle
river what is considered the best
water-fall in British Columbia."
If the American Mining Investment Co. is a bona fide institution,
and its operations are conducted
along honorable lines, and they are
successful iu developing paying
mines and the upbuilding of a
prosperous town at Curlew, the re-
suits can kit lie beneficial to this
section, as Cascade is the gateway.
Then, loo, it will iurlher encourage
the building of a railway from
Kettle or Meyers Falls or Marcus
via Cascade to Republic.
We do Business in Grand Forks.
J. G. Rives and G. J. Simmons
have gone over to Nelson to erect a
house for our former citizen, Dr.
Joseph Schaich.
T. E. l'iewnian,of Rossland, who
is looking after his mining interests
in Burnt Basin, attended religious
services in Cascade last Sunday.
V. Monnier, the Dominion Sup
ply store and the Commercial hotel
have wisely taken precautionary
steps against that dread fiend of
destruction, fire, by placing many
well-filled water barrels in convenient positions.
The attention of owners of premises on which are locoated outhouses not properly and regularly
cleansed is called to the fact that
there are laws for such cases made
and provided, and that the community must not be subjected to danger from the neglect or indifference
of such owners. A word to the
wise is sufficient.
The heat and forest-fire smoke,
interspersed wiih rainlels, and cool
mornings the forepart of the week,
has provided the denizens of Cascade and the Boundary generally
with a variety of climatic experiences that cnnte a yearning f< i
the season of ihe sere and yellow
leaf,and even thecrisp atnioshphere
that accompanies the approach of
Jack Frost.
The pen pictures of the horrors
of tbe Chinese, Transvaal, Philippine and Ashanti wars are rendered more realistic in this community by the constant booming
of the blasts set off by the men
engaged on the rock nnd tunnel
work of the Cascade Water Power
and Light Co. The severity of the
shocks often knock down type in
this office.
G. K. Stocker was in Burnt Basin
last week examining some mining
properties in which he, with Richard Darrow, is interested. He expresses himself as surprised with
the excellent indications, which assessment work on the Tin Cup
claim has revealed, and like every
one else visiting the Basin, comes
away every time more and more
convinced that that mining district
has a most promising future.
There are a dozen private bills to
he dealt with at this session of the
legislature, most of them being
"left overs." One is a bill to enable
the building of a railway from
Grand Forks to Carson to connect
with a line to be built from Republic.
