"Political Pointers, No. 2 (for
Speakers and Chairmen of Committees) 'Compliments of Alexander
Smith, Sec. Ontario Liberal Association, 34 Victoria St., Toronto,'"
is before us. On the front page of
the blue cover are these extracts
from speeches of Right Hon. Sir
Wilfrid Laurier:
"if there is anything to which I
have devoted my political life, it is
to try to promote unity, harmony
and amity between the diverse elements of this country. My friends
can desert me, they can remove
their confidence from me, they can
withdraw the trust they have
placed in my handB, but never
shall I deviate from that line of
policy. Whatever may be the consequences, whether loss of prestige,
loss of popularity, or loss of power,
I feel that I am in the right, and I
know that a time will come when
every man will render me full justice on that score."���House of Commons, March 13th, 1900.
"I claim this for the Liberal Government, that we have endeavoured
to carry on the policy of this country so as to make Canada a nation
within the British Empite���A nation great in the eyes of the world.
For my part, I want to see her
lands occupied, her mines developed, her forests cleared, her fisheries
exploited, her cities growing, her
population increasing, but above
all, I want to see our people united.
I do not know whether my political career or my natural life shall
be short or long ; but whether short
or long, I cherish the hope that I
shall have so lived that when deposited in my grave, every Canadian, be he friend or foe, be he English-speaking or French-speaking,
Protestant or Catholic, will have to
say: 'There rests a man who has
given the best of his life, of his
soul, of his heart, to make us a
united people.'"���At Bowmanville,
October, 1899.
This book is full of political
pointers.
NOTE AND COMMENT.
Manitoba and Ontario are complaining of numerous depredations
by incendiarists.
Russia, Germany and Japan
have decided to carve off a slice of
the Chinese empire to suit their
respective maws.
There is a war cloud hovering
over Roumania and Bulgaria. The
nations who have not a scrap on
hand these days are not up to date.
Winnipeg is evidently a growing
city. Its building expenditure the
past year was close to $2,000,000.
That amount expended in Cascade
would make the mare go very fast.
The strike among the coal miners
and railway men in Wales is bringing many inquiries to this country
relative to our coal supply. Which
indicates a demand far iu excess of
our capabilities  in that direction.
Paul Johnson, M. E., general
manager of the British Columbia
Copper company's smelting works,
returned to Greenwood last Monday after an absence of three and a
half months in Europe. Mr.
Johnson was accomdanied by Mrs.
Johnson and two children.
At Vancouver a white boy stole
two bottles of pop from M. Kawat-
chi, a Japanese huckster. Kawat-
chi caught the hoy and taking bim
to a barn, tied him up to a beam
by the thumbs. The boy's screams
attracted the neighbor's attention
to the cruel act and the police have
Kawatchi in their toils. These
government pets are severe in the
administration of justice to white
trash.
The fifteenth issue of the Statistical Year-Book of Canada for 1899
issued by the Department of Agriculture has reached our exchange,
table, safe and sound. If we were
sure of a mundane existance during another century or two, we
might be tempted to wade into its
statistical profundity.
The chap who attempted to take
the life of the Prince of Wales was
sent to prison for the offense. The
fellow in the Transvaal who conspired to assassinate Lord Roberts,
was tried and shot with alacrity
and fatality to the would-be assassin. The Italian who plugged
King Humbert to his death with
leaden bullets, will be provided for
the balance of his natural life by
the government of his native land.
In these cases the greater crimes
receive the least punishment.
British arms are still victorous
everywhere in the Transvaal and
the troubles there will soon be
brought to an end, so for as war
demonstrations are concerned. In
China the armed forces of the
allied nations have overcome all
obstacles in their lines of march,
and have matters in band in shape
to demand satisfaction for all
damages by the heathens. It will
be an easy matter to settle with
China, but when it comes to a
squaring of conditions between the
"Christian" nations then the real
difficulties begin,
In Eastern Canada' the political
movements now taking place indicate that the general election "rabbit-drive" is about- to occur. The
Conservatives and Liberals are
martialling their forces and throwing up breast works preparatory
for the oncoming struggle for the
official loaves and fishes dispensed
from the public larder. In a lesser
degree the same may be said of this
province, The Liberals of Yale-
Cariboo riding will meet at Revelstoke to select a standard bearer,
next Wednesday.
A Paris Awaid Comes to British Columbia.
It is announced from London by
cable that the department of mines
of British Columbia haB been
awarded a grand prize at the Paris
exposition. This is pleasing information. The result of this award
will be of great benefit to the mining interests of the province. There
is already much French capital invested here, and the effect of the
Paris display and the award it
won will be to bring more. The
French investors here are among the
most energetic and successful.

THE CASCADE BECOBD
CASCADE CURRY,
A LOCAL  HASH   WITH   FOREIGN  SEASONING,
DISHED UP BY STANLEY MAYALL.
The death of Baron Russell of
Killowen, Lord Chief Justice of
England, and erstwhile leading
counsel for the defence of Mrs.
Maybrick against the crown prosecution on the charge of wilfully
murdering her husband by means
of arsenical poisoning has once
more called into prominence the
fact that the condemned woman,
whoee sentence of death was commuted to one of penal servitude, is
still living and is probably also
still buoyed with hope of release
through the instrumentality of her
friends' efforts. Whether they will
achieve through the home secretary
by medium of a new chief justice,
a possible stranger to the case,
what they failed to do through "Sir
Charles" himself iB verv doubtful.
As a resident neighbor of the
Maybricks, a fellow member in the
Liverpool Cotton Association of the
poisoned man and his reputed rival, a close business acquaintance
of both and an old friend of the
latter, I naturally"took the utmost
possible interest in the long, exciting trial. The whole thing
arose out of the culpable curiosity
of a Maybrick servant. Mr. May-
brick was seriously ill in bed and
his wife, wayward, willful and a
confirmed flirt, tied to the house
and tired of her nursing duties,
aching for a breath of the freedom
which she was accustomed to regard as her own, was indiscreet
enough to write a billet doux to my
friend A. B. She was further foolish enough to give that letter to a
servant to post, the servant was
more or less inqusitive and somehow the letter never got posted. A
few days later Mr. Maybrick died.
of incriminating circumstantial
evidence which eventually caused
the Crown to take the matter up
aud brought about the incarceration of Florence Elizabeth Maybrick in her Majesty's jail as a
prisoner to be tried on the awful
charge of murder.
Then some ugly rumors began to
float around and eventually an
analysis was made of the dead
man's stomach and intestines.
It seemed that Mrs Maybrick's
letter to A. B. purloined and read
by the servant, contained the expression that her husband was
"sick unto death." The expression
may have been and possibly wsb
innocent enough, many of us who
are not murderers have used it
scores of times. However, the last
illness of the dead man had had
some peculiarities.
A sister in law is not always
persona grata and the deceased
man had two brothers, one the well
known composer,"Stephen Adams"
and another, a cotton merchant, who
did not over fully appreciate the
light of love methods of their sister-
in-law. The servant, I presume
communicated with these gentlemen and enquiries that were made
resulted in the discovery of a host
The shock which ran through
Liverpool circles, more particularly of the higher social order, and
on the exchange flags when this
news became public is such as will
not Boon be forgotten.
It did not mend matters much
that the deceased man was no great
favorite with his fellows, for he
was not; on the contrary although
of high commercial character, as indeed are the bulk of his confreres,
he was taciturn, gloomy and generally considered unwholesome,
whilst his wife on the other hand,
was vivacious, fond of society and
a pronounced dirt, and A. B. was
generally an all-round good fellow,
was of an old family, handsome,
athletic ind wealthy.
The contrast does not excuse
murder of course.
And it is not the expression that
Florence Maybrick used, bo much
as knowledge of the man to whom
she wrote it, that assures me beyond question aud for all time
that whatever designs Mrs. Maybrick may have had in her head at
other moments she certainly never
had murderous motives'when she
penned those words to A, B.
restless, impatient public were
packed so densely that one could
have walked for half a mile upon
their shoulders. I can safely say
that perusal of the evidence had
assured most of the crowd that
Mrs. Maybrick's life was safe���indeed that she was not guilty. The
mere fact that her dead husband
had been shown beyond question
to be a confirmed arsenic eater and
as such, like an opium smoker
more likely to suffer from its deprivation than its moderate consumption had amply established that in
their minds. However the jury
eventually brought in its verdict.
The trial was long and eventful.
The highest legal talent and forensic skill which Britain could produce was arrayed for and against
this unhappy woman. The greatest scientific skill was brought forward, tbe cleverest toxicologists
of the day came up and offered their quota of experience and
presumptions until the mass of
testimony brought forward was
such as to be absolutely wearying
in its voluminoiisness and for my
part, as a witness of the trial, 1 seriously question whether it was not
a source of confusion to all its
hearers, a sickening annoyance to
the neat, pallid, anxious, little,
crepe-clad widow in the dock and
a cause of positive boredom to the
decrepit, somnolent old gentleman,
since deceased, who occupied the
post of judge.
On the final day of the trial, I
failed to get my customary place in
St. George's Hall and probably a
king's ransom would hardly have
reserved it for me. Without the
long cordon of police which surrounded the massive portals of that
historic building the thousands of

knowing the difficulty, indeed the
impossibility of his reporters quick
penetration of the surrounding
crowd had arranged that signals
should be waved from the court
house steps.
One flicker of a handkerchief was
to signify guilty and two not guilty
but a misunderstanding arose and
the consequence was that after the
jury had brought in the verdict of
guilty and within five minutes of
the judge having in solemn tones
pronounced the dread sentence of
death, a stop-pre^s edition of that
paper was issued announcing that
Mrs. Maybrick was practically free.
The result was that whilst a weak
and erring woman was being led
shuddering from the dock to her
doom, whilst a brave man was suffering such tortures as those of hell
can never obliterate and the jury
feeling pretty much like a conglomerate murderer itself, hundreds
of people in other parts of the
town were congratulating each
other, cheering wildly and rushing
about yelling "not guilty." When
the sickening truth came home to
all, it seemed as if the light of life
had gone out. A heavy pall of
sadness hung over the city. The
cheering had changed to impenetrable gloom.
believes otherwise and has ordained
that Florence Maybrick shall pay
the penalty thereof.
Her children, with changed name
are being reared in ignorance of
their parents tragic careers. My
friend A. B. a sadder and a wiser
man was a little while since traveling in Alaska endeavoring probably with utter futility to find, in
constant change, oblivion from a
memory which murders alike both
sleep, and peace and rest.
Dealing once more with poison
and memories of the past, the reported death of Madame Nemethy
on the stage of the Royal Opera
House at Buda Pesth through ac-
cidently drinking a violent poison
in place of the colored water she
ought to have taken, recalls that of
Federici on the boards of the New
Princess theatre in Melbourne
about twelve years ago. He was
taking the part of Faust in the
world-renowned opera of that name.
Just at the moment when Mephistopheles claims him as a victim at the price of his own desires
and is conducting him to the supposed inferno below, a heart seizure
overtook him and he died practically in sight of thd applauding
audience. The association was
and is an entirely unpleasant one.
Two days later I attended the
funeral and the circumstances
thereof did little to bring relief to
the recollection. The day was insufferably hot. The officiating
clergyman, Dr. Bromby, swooned'
and falling heavily nearly plunged
headlong into the grave, the widow
fainted immediately afterwards and
two of the chorus girls went into
hysterics. That is the last theatrical funeral I shall ever attend I
hope.
Shortly afterwards, in response
to an appeal signed by several
thousand of her fellow-beings, the
Home Secretary decided upon commuting Mrs. Maybrick's sentence
into one of penal servitude for life.
Since then many more petitions
originating both in Europe and
America have been received from
persons earnestly praying for the
woman's release, offering fresh evi
dence and professing unfailing
faith in her innocence. They have
all been without avail. British
law of the higher order is not like
the ambassadorial, military and
other social and executive forces,
administered by a family clique, it
knows neither society nor sentiment,
it deals justice based on truth and
it matters little whether or not
every man believes as I do, that
Mrs. Maybrick was and is innocent
of the crime charged to her hands,
the Crown, on evidence before it, noun.
It has been suggested to me by
the editor of this paper that it
would only amount to an act of
common civility on my part if I returned thanks to the editors of
numerous journals in British Columbia and the United States who
have so kindly and so favorably
commented upon my recent contributions to this page, and this I most
heartily do, as also to the friends
who have written me privately.
It is with all the more pleasure
that I record this expression i e-
cause their good will has supported a contention I long ago expressed that although it might suit
Mrs. Betsey Brown very well to
hear her shack described as a palace and her carrotty haired, bandylegged daughter as a modern edition of Hebe, that although it
might please Mr. John Jones to -
picture his efforts at grave digging
as scientific mining, and bring elation to the soul of Bob Robinson to
read that his peas are all pumpkins, the public had had enough of'
such, and could fool itself all it
needed without paying another
man a nickel to take the job out
of its hands.
Months ago a man flatly contradicted me on that point and I did
myself and my readers the honor
of calling him a liar; should I have
the pleasure of meeting him once
more, I'll add an adjective to the THE   CASCADE   RECORD

A MORE CONFIDENT SPIRIT PREVAILS.
The starting of operations at the
Grand Forks smelter has considerably improved commercial conditions and the business outlook in
that city and the Boundary generally. It would now appear that
what has heretofore been a matter
of doubt and uncertainty, has become a gratifying reality. After a
two weeks' run at the smelter, it is
found that the machinery can and
is doing all that was expected of it,
that the ores are more easily treated than was anticipated by the
most sanguine, and consequently
the results more satisfactory. These
demonstrations lead to brighter
hopes and prospects in many directions, and it settles the fact that
the ores in many mines upon which
large sums of money have been expended, the grade of which it was
feared were so low they could
not be treated with profit to owners, will now become dividend payers. This showing will result in
renewed efforts on the part of claim
holders throughout the Boundary
to continue development work.
These developments will create further demand for smelter capacity,
and smelters will be erected where
ever the supply of ore may warrant
Ruch undertakings. As these developments go on, the growth of business and population will keep pace
till the Boundary country has become the foremost metalliferous
mining section  on  this continent.
A portion of a letter picked up
on the road between Cascade and
Christina lake, showed that it was
written in Montana to a party
here. In it the writer stated that a
large majority of the people favored
Bryan for President, but that McKinley would probably be placed
in power because there was 60 much
money on his side. Wonderfully
"free" country that, isn't it ? The
fact is, money, through such un-
Bcroupulous manipulators as Mark
H^nna, has made the presidents of
the stales for the past twenty-five
years.
Next Monday, being Labor Day,
will be observed as a holiday
throughout the United StateB and
Canada. In most of the countries
of Europe the first of May is by
general consent observed as Labor
Day, but a few years ago the authorities at Washington and Ottawa enacted that the first Monday
in September should be annually
observed as Labor day in the United
States and Canada respectively.
WILLIAM J. BRYAN THE NEXT PRESIDENT.
Four years ago William Jennings
Bryan, under many untoward conditions, gave President McKinley,
with the moneyed corporations and
influences bending their powers in
his interest, a close contest for the
presidency of the great republic to
the south of us. Beside tbe opposition of the republican party and
the monopolistic wealth of the
nation, Mr. Bryan then had many
other formidable harriers to confront. The "Gold Democrats," or
Palmer and Buckner side issue, attracted many mercenary voters.
These were a class whose greed governed their political action as it
now governs tbe entire republican
management of governmental affairs. Another element, more sincere, but misguided in its bitter opposition to Mr. Bryan, was what
was termed the "Middle-of-the-
Road" populist party. This element consisted of a class possessed
of stubborn principle without policy other than a determination to
hold to their.principles to the letter in the face of sure defeat, rather
than compromise in the least degree for the sake of a large measure
of success. . Iu the. campaign now
on, Mr. Bryan enjoys the support
of both these latter named factions.
They perceive the intention of the
republican leaders to supplant the
constitution of the republic with an
imperialistic despotism fatal to
every sacred principle vouchsaved
to the people by the Declaration of
Independence, and recognized in
Bryan the great character of a
Washington or a Lincoln���a third
savior of his country, and many
republican leaders, who realize that
their party has forsaken its former
principles and gone after the god
mammon, have taken up arms
against their former allies and are
now marching in the Bryan ranks.
In the present struggle, the very
forces that encompassed Mr.
Bryan's defeat by independent action four years ago, are now working for his success. That he will
succeed is confidently believed by
his supporters and much feared by
his opponents.
The Pierre Lake District.
There are many indications that
the Pierre Lake mining district will
soon be cutting more of a figure in
the mining world than just at
present. Many of the mineral
claims in that district are proving
to be unexpectedly rich and large
in proportions. Most of the owners there are men of means and
push. During the past two weeks
the camp has been visited by several wealthy parties interested, and
on the quiet, extensive preparations
are said to be making for a substantial forward movement. The
First Thought mine is proving to
be a property of vast worth, and
scores of adjoining prospects are
developing a like indication. It
looks now as though a smart little
town might spring up there.

the Boundary should patronize
home industries when it is convenient and profitable to do so.
Some ore can ran away down
the grade on the Knob Hill spur.
They were derailed at the station
by opening the switch, otherwise
they would have got out onto the
main line and played smash generally. As it was the cars were badly damaged.
O. S. Stocker, treasurer of the
city of Republic, Wash., was a guest
of his brother, G. K. Stocker, of
Cascade, a day or two this week.
The Yale-Columbia sawmill is
now cutting lumber on the new
site above the dam. So far only
the former plant of John Earle,
which was removed, is in operation,
eight or ten men being employed.
Other machinery will be added as
demand may indicate.    .
There have been from time -to
time rumors in circulation to the
effect that the Cascade-Bossburg
stage was to discontinue running.
Mr. Bell tells a Record reporter
that there is no truth in these
rumorB That the local travel to
Pierre lake combined with the
through travel is constantly ipi-
proving, and that there is no probability of a discontinuance of the
line at present.
Rev. K. W. Barton expects to
leave for the east about the middle
of September, the term for which
he was appointed to Cascade expiring then. Mr. Barton will preach
next Sunday, Septembei 2nd, and
on Sunday, September 16th, will
preach his farewell sermon. The
Sacrament of the Lord's Supper
will be observed September 9th;
the officiating minister it is expected will be the Rev. J. R. Robertson,
of Grand Fords. As Mr. Barton
takes the place of the visiting minister, he will have but two more
Sabbaths in Cascade. A farewell
concert and social is being arranged for the last week of Mr. Barton's stay here.

THE  CASCADE   RECORD
September 1, 1900
A SERIOUS   ROIT  IN  McKINLEY'S STATE.
For years it was claimed that
the outrages committed against'the
negro were due mainly to the
hatred entertained by the southern democrats for the blacks, and
the republicans of the northern
states made use of the occurrences
to further their political ends.
But recently a race war broke
out in New York city, causing the
death of several persons.
LaBt Wednesday, the city of Akron, in the President's own state,
Ohio, was in the hands of the most
reckless and infuriated mob of the
pant 30 years in the history of that
��� country. The mob formed with
the intention of lynching Louis
Peck, a negro who was arrested
charged with having attempted to assault Christina, the 6-year-
old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Theodore Mass^ who live on Perkins'
hill. In police court the prisoner
pleaded guilty, and waB bound over
to the common pleas court in
$5,000 bail. For safe keeping Peck
and another colored prisoner were
taken to Cleveland. When the
mob formed to lynch Peck found
that the prisoner had been spirited
away, its fury knew no bounds.
The court house was wrecked and
city officials had to flee for their
lives.
Shortly after midnight the mob
broke into a hardware store and
stole all the fireams and ammunition they could And, including
guns, rifles and revolvers, and proceeded to the city building and
opened fire on the defenders, and
finally set fire to the Columbia hall,
which adjoined the city building.
The flames spread rapidly to the
city building, which was destroyed.
When it is considered that tbe
spirit and temper of the masses is
such that in the state of Ohio,
where rests the power to make the
policies and presidents of the
United States, the people defy law
.and start out to commit murder
and arson and burglary, it is time
for the one man government of
that country to begin lo hesitate
long enough to see what the nature
of the result of the example he is
setting before that people. He may
discover soon that the army he has
sent out for conquest on foreign
soil will be required to maintain
subjection at home.
Recently the Grand Forks Gazette printed a very severe and unreasonably bitter criticism of the
operations and stated purposes of
the American Mining Investment
company, operating at Curlew, a
few miles from Grand Forks, on
the wagon road to Republic. The
article referred to pronounced the
company a stupendous fraud, and
its operations mythical, or words
to that effect.    A representative of
the company interviewed the editor
of the Gazette relative to the article, and now the editor says he
will investigate Curlew matters in
order to see whether his former
tierce condemnatory statements
were true or faltt>. Speaking of
John H. Gallagher, one of the officers of the company, the Gazette
says: "However John Henry says
bis company courts investigation
and courting is right in our line so
we shall in the near future send a
representative to Curlew, to go over
the properties with Mr. Gallagher
and see exactly what they have to
offer. If there is any merit in their
company and its holdings we shall
state the facts, while should we
find things the other way we certainly will not hesitate about saying
so." It wouid appear that this is
a case of hanging, and trial afterwards. The honorable method
would have been to have made the
investigation before indulging in
wholesale condemnation.
RAILROAD CONSTRUCTION RUMORS.
Engineer Lupfer, of the Great
Northern Railway, was in Bossburg Sunday and left by private
conveyance for Cascade. There
are lots'of rumors in the air as to
what point the Great Northern
branch across the Reservation will
leave the Spokane Falte and Northern line, and which route will be
taken. It is stated that surveyors
are now on a route from Marcus up
Kettle River to the mouth of Boulder creek, and thence across to Republic; But it. is reported' by
people who claim to be in the inside that the road will be built
from Northport to Cascade,, via
Flat and Pierre creeks. This route
will give rriore ore tonnage and
an easier grade. At Cascade: the
latter route will connect with the
proposed electric road to Republic.
There are several survey parties
running lines across the reservation, and their presence at one
point or the other is no criterion to
go by until the grade stakes have
been set.���Bossburg Journal.
