William P;'Tye,"chiefEngineer,
and John U. Solli,van;;chief -..assist-
HJJi...engineer of the Colunil/ia i
WeBtern railway, arrived. ,in Cas-
gade Thursday evening. They were
jhakjng a' td.urpjf the new railway
line, foe the purpose of' inspecting
|he >^prk^ :ihuiRi ,fa<r accomplished,
firom West Robson to the long
pnnel it was a simple matter, as
ijrork trains were running that far,
lilt from /the,tunnel to Cascade,
Chese high officials in the engineering department of. this branch of
the'-f3, P.:$i made the journey on
foot���thus being abje to t��ke in
eyery detail of the construction to
date. In company with J. W.
Stewart, one of the firm of.contractors for the building of the-line.
ftessrg Tye a!%d' Sul'llva.n left ves-
ftaday morning to continue the
t&ttM.thi.��nfl2of the line .at Jftid:.
way, 40 miles heypnd Cascade.    -
���' It is the mosi -difficult>pkce, of
road-building ever attempted in
Can��idH',",s��aid Mr. Tye to a Record
representative,, who was accorded
(in Intervfew. ���'��������� He then went on
and gave a most interesting account
of the work thus far accomplished.
It wan February 1st, 1898, when
Mr. Tye lauded al, the mouth of
Dog creek, on Lower Arrio)w'tliike;
with a force of engineers, and
began the ...warl^tff; rui��ung.: the
location lines-for"^ this' raiilwayf 4ne
contract, fo/ which ..w#s. soon to be
rlti'rMthouKrt few wrlef'iiware 'of it
at that timer"' Some" idea "Of" the
difficulties to be overcome ��by, the
engineers may be gained when it
is remembered that on this survey
100 pairs of snowshoes were worn
out. The contract for the 105
miles was let to Mann, Foley Bros.
& Larson in June, 1898,and active,,
construction at once begun.
Mr. Tye divided his engineers
wtt0.fu'iiOiiyl��i()n��' of about twenty-
flye^jlie? ��� ��eaeh, , The /first was
under F. M. Young, whbse work is
now done, and he,is out near Penticton ].{trig u^ccfn^'Ji under Georjte
Fnrr, with""a, camp at the" Summit;
the third is tn4eharge of Oscar
Englurid, at Cascade, while F. Mi
Rice, located at Greenwood, is
division engineer::for. the balance
of the line. Mr.JFy*or Mjr, -Sul ii-
van are frequently over the line of
construction, with a general supervision of the wo,rk,-;,;:   u>
In regard to the track laying,
the progress of which is how attracting wide attention, Mr. Tye
stated -thai the rails were' now
down on both sides of the switch-
hieV, b-id r��nfhfd *h* bridee nt
Q'li'k'i 'irceV, and were coming on
towards Cascade at the rate of
about a mile per day. The bridges
at Qui no creek and Porcupine
creek, being practically completed,
will not occasion much delay. Then
there is a completed roadbed till a
point near Gladstone is reached,
where bridge men already at work
will have the high trestles in that
locality ready for the ribs of steel
by the time the track gets that far.
At Sutherland creek and Baker
creek, emptying into Cbristinaiake,
which areicrossed on wooden bridges
also, no delay is anticipated. It
is expected that the main part of
the 10QQ foot bridge over Kettle
fiver at Cascade will be in place in
a/couple of'weeks; /The two spans
will not be put in a J present, but

time and place for each event to
take place, and such other details
as. may come up. A full attendance is specially requested.
During the last week considerable cprreHpondence\h��8 been had
with ontside towns, and everything
points to there being a large attendance from all neighboring
places. M^m'bers of the general
finance committee have visited
Rossland, Bossburg, Grand Forks
and Columbia, and have,been
agreeably surprised tp learn of the
interest being tak��tn all over in the
ceiebration,. The changes are that

pn ^'^W^t^r-l'W'iSii^ wi,H be
taxed to tnejr utmost capaci,ty.   ,
In thehorse race, thera-is likely
tu-he-fiumeflyers Inquiries have
come in from several places���Republic, JBoesburg, Grand Forks,
Rossland and 'elsewhere,, and .two
horses are now en route from Ross:
land. This promises to be the
most interesting of all the events.
The other raceb will also doubtless be well patronized, as they are
being talked'Up: by tiiose most interested. The details of the various
sports will be gone into at tonight's
meeting, and judges appointed as
far as possible.
The corijet, band from- Bossburg

arranged:''
Considerable work has been done
on the baseball grounds, and it is
expected that an interesting game
will take place. The Bossburg
baseball club is expected, and probably hne from Grand Fprks. Another feature that will undoubtedly
create merriment will be the
friendly tug of war heeween the
hotel keepers of Grand Forks and
those of Cascade. The Grand
Forks Miner says that the land-
lords,of that town are expected to
give a good account of themselves.
. From "ow on every man in Cascade should let no stone go unturned to see that, the greatest kind
of a success is made of the celebration. Streets should be cleaned up,
biiilnMnir's deforated and everything
put in apple pie order.

HONORED FOR EIOHTY YEARS.
"The Queen ! God bless her,and
many happy returns of the day,"
will, we hope, be the toast and the
wish of every resident and visitor
in Cascade on Wednesday next;
and those gathered together in re
spectful jubilation need hesitate
not one second to consider whether
or not they be American; British,
Canadian or foreign, for, judged
either as woman; mother, octogenarian, queen or empress, she stands
and reigns supreme; worshipped
alike, worthily and deservedly, by
the simple cottage folk of Balmoral,
as by the great ones " chosen of the
people,'' gathered round her throne
in the "places of the most high."
, And Cascade, one of the newest
of the new, will not be alone on
Wednesday next in celebrating the
birthday of the greatest of the old,
and in honoring the queen she will
be more than honoring herself and
adding one pure note to the glad
piean of joy and praise which will,
like Puck's belt, encircle the glolie.
vit is beyond most of us to achieve
distinction ; it may be almost past
our own capacity to detect worth
in ourselves, but the most obscure
and worthless among us can have
no excuse for not knowing, admiring and honoring the worth,
benevolence, tact and greatness of
Her Majesty our queen.

generally are anvthing but pleased
at some of the provisions of the
new license law, which was brought
about by Hon. Joseph Martin, the
attorney-general. In places of less
than 50 inhabitants, they formerly
paid $60 per year for a license; now
it is $100. In the vicinity of places
having more than 50 people, they
must pay $200 per year as before.
But all applicants must send in a
fee of $10 with the application���

hour's leeway for delay would
certainly be ample for all probable
contingencies.
NOTE AND COMMENT.
With the last issue the Grand
Forks Miner was three years old.
It bears on its face many evidences
of prosperity.    .
Visitors to Cascade on the Queen's
birthday will be assured of a hearty
welcome. From letters received
they will come from every point of
the compass.
The establishment of a recording
office in Cascade would please and
accommodate mining men in this
vicinity more than any other one
thing the government could do
just now.
Unless all signs fail, Cascade
will be thronged with visitors next
Wednesday. That they will go
away with a favorable opinion of
the town and its enterprising inhabitants, goes without saying.
Old Winter has been lingering
in the lap of spring this year until
most people are heartily tired of

make a better job of it than he has
of late, he would do well to resign.

The enforcement of the eight-

THE CASCADE RECORD
| BY THE WAYSIDE   f
StlW��.t��t*^^ttaYltltKt^ltltKlU?AltKat��t)lt
One of the publishers of the
Record happened to meet an of-
ticial of the C. P. R. last Saturday,
and was assured by that gentleman
that he had just been informed by
a smelter official of the great cor-
oration, who is in a position to
now, that the building of the
Cascade smelter was absolutely
assured, and that the delay in
starting operations was merely a
question of details. While this is
in accord with the ideaa of the
Record on this subject, we merely
give the opinion for what it is
w irth. At the same time, it should
he remembered that much of the
so-called smelter news is really of
little or no value. But, as Rudynrd
Kipling would say, that is another
story.
-%>
A few weeks ago the Record
called attention to the flotation of
properties of questionable value in
Camp McKinney, on the reputation
of such mines as the great Cariboo.
Here is the opinion of the British
Columbia Mining Record, a recognized authority, on the subject:
" It is greatly to be regretted that
the prosperity of such a promising
mining camp as Camp McKinney
should, as now seems inevitable, be
seriously retarded by the practices
of the unscrupulous "wildcatter"
which we have noticed during the
past few months. On the reputation of the Cariboo, the Waterloo
and the Foritenoy very many claims
have been sold to new companies
floated for that purpose.and in
many cases the hypothetical presence of the Cariboo vein on the
new company's ground has been
used to wheedle subscriptions from
the pockets of an all-too-gullible
public. If the celebrated Cariboo
vein were to run into all the ground
in which its presence is claimed
then Camp McKinney would he a
geological wonder indeed, for it is
said to be in all sorts of impossible
places and the most absurd reasons
are given in support of the statement. Besides these claims purporting to have the Cariboo vein,
many other properties unimproved
and und.evelnppd,. often staked op.
the snow, have been unscrupulously,
foisted on a public which does not
understand that there are worthless as well' as valuable mineral
claims in every mining camp. So
far has wildcat work been carried
in Camp McKinney that we believe
several of the properties, thus sold
would only fulfil the better half of
Mark Twain's celebrated definition, ),A mine is .,&, hole in the
gjroun'd, and the owner thereof is a
liar:'"
That the C. P. R. recognizes the
strategic importance of the location
of Cascade is generally recognized.
Additional evidence of this is
found in the fact, that steps will
soon be taken by that company to
ascertain the feasibility of bringing
light draft steamers down from
Christina lake to the door of Cas-
cade. The idea. is to bring the
Christina lake ores to" tliW"' fibint as
economically as possible, and it is
believed this can he done more
cheaply by water than hy the railway, which is located in places at
a high elevation above the lake.
Captain Troup, of the C. P. R.
Kootenay fleet, has heen requested
to look into this matter and give
his opinion. It will thus be noted
that the C. P. R. fully appreciates
the possibilities of ore tonnage on
Christina lake, and will take the
,initial steps towards providing for
it when it is offered.
The townsite owners are fully
cognizant of what it means to bring
the lake trade to this city without
transfer by water, and are confident that it can be accomplished
by the construction of a dam in
Kettle river, below the confluence
of that stream With Christina
creek, thereby giving sufficient
depth of water in the latter stream
at all seasons: It is understood
that it is the intention of the town-
site company to undertake the
putting in of this dam in time for
use for the purpose indicated. Such
an improvement would add greatly
to the commercial importance of
this city.
No one has yet risen to explain
why the two stage lines, operating
between Cascade and Bossburg,
should get passengers down to the
latter place from lwo to three hours
before either up or down train
arrives at that town. To most
people, an hour or two additional
spent in bed would be vastly, preferable to spending at the railway
town with nothing in particular to
do. The claim that allowance for
accidents, and delays in crossing
the Columbia is needful, may be
all-right, but surely a leeway of
three hours for either or both of
these contingencies is uncalled for.
Here is an opportunity for both
lines tn get the good will of the
travelling public by acting on the
suggestion referred to.
On another page of this issue of
the Record Will be found an article
on the Similkameen district, from
the pen of R. E. Gosnell, who is
reported to have lately purchased
a controlling interest in the Boundary Creek Times. Just at this
time, when so many prospectors
and mining men are turning their
attention towards this rich section,
this information will be peculiarly
appropriate. The rich lodes of the
Similkameen have been known to
exist for years, but their inaccessibility has effectually barred exploration or development to any
extent. The district now. however,
promises to come "rapidly to the
front. ,
If indications count for anything
at all, at this writing, Cascade will

Wednesday, who will be here to
take part in the celebration,
Several, loads will he here from
Bossburg, including the cornet
band and the baseball club ; Glad*

people will forget all about the
Columbia fight for a day and give"
themselves the pleasure of honoring
Queen Victoria at the Gateway
City, and the Record predicts that
they will all have a good time.

THE CASCADE RECORD
May SO, UN
Mali Now does Out Much Earlier.
This week the Columbia Stage
Co. has inaugurated a new schedule
which, in one respect, is anything
but pleasing. One of the vehicles
runs through to Bossburg in the
afternoon, leaving Cascade about
2:30. This is not so bad, if the
stage company, who has the mail
carrying contract, did not insist on
carrying the outgoing mails at the
same time. That is to say, a letter
must be mailed here a little after
noon, instead of by 8 p. m., to
reach its destination at the same
time as formerly.
An early morning stage is still
sent out, that has from three to
four hours to spare at Bossburg to
make connections with both trains,
but the Columbia Stage Company,
in its usual high-handed way, purposes to carry the mail whenever
it likes. It evidently voices the
sentiment attributed to W. K.
Vanderbilt, viz., "The public be
d������-d." And it is losing business
every day by just such methods.
Another Rtch District Close to Cascade.
The Bossburg Journal calls attention to a section on the reservation which has until recently been
neglected as far as mine development goes, viz., the Deep Creek
neighborhood near the international
boundary line, about four miles
south of Cascade. It is now one
of the latest attractions in mining
circles, and the indications are
that this section will show up
something  this season  that will
create a stir up there. The ledges
are wide and prominent, and are
composed of soft quartz, with serpentine formation. The surface
assays are comparatively high,
running from $9 to $23 in gold
and silver. The Virginia Mining
Co., which is getting ready to work
its Deep Creek property, has a
fine showing, having obtained an
assay from near the surface going
$19 in gold and 16 ounces in silver.
There are several other properties
in that section which will be extensively developed this season,
When the reservation was first
opened the ground in that locality
was all staked by a few wholesale
locators who did no work, and
delayed the development of that
rich section. Most of the ground
was relocated last January and is
now claimed by people who will
push development.

THE CASCADE RECORD
IN THE RICH SIMILKAMEEN
One of the Coming Mineral Sections
of the Province.
HAS SOME IMMENSE COPPER LEDGES
Description of the District and Something of
the Promising Claims That are Already
Located There.
One district that it* drawing a
great deal of attention at present
from a mining standpoint is the
section known as the Similkameen,
which ia practically in the same
mineral belt as the Boundary
creek country. The following was
written by R. E. Gosnell in regard
to this district:
As is well known the Similkameen is not a new country. It
was first explored in the early days
by placer miners and a considerable quantity of gold was taken
out from along the Similkameen
rivers and their tributaries. Long
ago, too, it was known by old
timers that very large ore bodies
existed there, and it was predicted
then-that it would some day become a great mining camp. In
fact, the hopes of many were nailed
to that district long before the ore
bodies of the Kootenay were known
to exist.
Twelve years ago, a settler from
the Similkameen valley described
to the writer the mountains rf ore
which existed there, and descanted
enthusiastically on the wealth that
would be taken therefrom. Large
hydraulic plants are now being
worked in various parts of the
district adjacent to Copper Mountain, and within a radius of a few
miles of Princeton, which some
da'y will occupy a prominent position in relation to the whole of
that country.
It is situated about 100 miles
south of Kamloops, and about
twelve miles east of Granite creek,
the recording centre of the Similkameen district. It is also on the
surveyed line of the Victoria, Vancouver & Eastern railway, and
sooner or later it is conceded that
a line more closely connecting the
Interior with the Coast will yet be
constructed There are hopes, too,
that ft railway will be extended
from here to a point on the main
line of the C. P. Ry., probably
Speiice's Bridge.
It is only lately that this district
attracted any large number of
prospectors. During the summer
of 1897 a large number went in,
with the result that at Copper and
Kennedy mountains, some ten
mile* from Princeton, very large
copper ledges were discovered. As
will he observed later on, these ore
bodies also contained very considerable values in gold and some in
silver. I am indebted to a friend
for some particulars of thene claims,
given as the result of an examination by a competent and reliable
mining engineer, who thoroughly
inspected all the properties referred
to.
The first location made was the
Sunset claim, on which several
hundred dollars were expended. It
showed such prospects of the makings of a mine that prospectors
from Rossland and the Boundary
district flocked in, and many locations were made, although there
still remained a good deal of
ground untouched. The little
work already done has proved the
country to be so rich in copper
that the attention of capitalists-
has already been directed thither.
The Sunset claim is developed by
a 43-foot shaft, and is in solid ore
with no walls. An average assay
taken from the bottom of the shaft
ran 14 per cent, in copper with $2
to $3 in gold. This claim is controlled by the B. A. C.
The Sunrise has two shafts, 10
and 26 feet in depth respectively,
disclosing an ore body 30 feet in
width running the full length of
the claim, average assays running
27 per cent, in copper and $4 to
$10 in gold.
The .Copper Farm is developed
by a 30-foot shaft, with average
assays of 20 par cent, in copper.
The Helen H. Gardner has an
open cut 300 feet in length, showing an enormous copper-bearing
ledge, the width of which is not
yet determined. There are also
two shafts on this claim, 48 and 30
feet respectively in depth, with
average assay- of 11 per cent, in
copper.
The Primrose Boy, averaging 17
per cent, in copper. The copper
bluff has exposed on it one of the
best ledges on the mountain. It is
a chalcopyritic ore with large kidneys of bornite in the shaft, assaying 54 per cent, in copper and 20
oz in silver.
Canada Mountain, which is a
spur of Copper Mountain, separated by the Similkameen river, has
deposits similar in character but iB
less developed. Few claims have
more than one assessment done on
them.
The Brooklyn has 15 per cent, in
copper and $7 in gold, with a solid
body of ore at the depth of 10 feet.
The Magnetic returns similar
values, while the Invincible goes
$12 27 all values.
The Key West and Lela are also
properties of apparently great
merit. The Lela exposes on the
surface a 60-foot ledge, assays
showing total values of copper*
gold and silver of $32 at a depth
of 10 feet. The formation is dior-
etic with ledge matter of porphyr-
itic quartz, impregnated with chal-
copyrjte, showing malacite and
arsenic. The Key West adjoins
the Lela, but it is crossed by the
ledge now opened on Bornite and
Princeton claims, assays from
which have given 13 per cent, in
copper at 10 feet deep.
The nearest raUway transportation to this district is the main
line of the C. P. R., at SpenceV
Bridge, a distance of 110 miles. A
good wagon road at present' connects Princeton with that point.
About eight miles west of Princeton some valuable free gold quartz
ledges were discovered in 1896, the
character of which is very similar
to that of the celebrated Republic
mine in the state of Washington.
The Manila claim is situated on
the north side of the Tulameen
river, eight miles west of Princeton.
An average assay ' from thirty
different openings across the entire
width of 26 feet ledge gives $30 in
gold. At another point on the
same ledge it gives $18 in gold.
The ore can be stamped and treated
on the ground successfully by the
cyanide process. Numerous coal
deposits have been found in the
