CASCADE, B. C, MARCH 18, 1899.
No. 19.
Boundary Country Will Soon Have
the Best of Service.
H. VV. Kent, general superintendent of the Nelson & Vernon
Telephone Co., owning and operating all the lines now existing in
Kootenay or Yale, is now in the
Boundary for the first time. His
home is now in Vancouver, and
this trip is taken in connection
with the improvements in the line
now undertaken or in contemplation by his company.
To a Record man Mr. Kent
stated that at present, from Bossburg to Spokane, the line in but n
single wire, grounded, which is
owned by the Spokane and British
Columbia Telephone Co. This does
not give very satisfactory service,
although the Nelson and Vernon
part of the line, this side of the
lioundary, is a metallic circuit-
that is, consists of two copper
The Inland Co.,however, owning
the exchange in Spokane, have
built a metallic circuit to Rossland, are now building to Republic
and will build from Bossburg to
Russell, at the Boundary line, as
soon as the show is off. When this
is done, the Nelson & Vernon ,C".
will have all their connections with
the Inland Co., and will have a
metallic circuit throughout. It is
believed that this will give a most
satisfactory service.
In the meantime, the Columbia
Telephone a lid Telegraph Co.. a
subsidiary flotation of the Spokane
and British Columbia Co., has let
a contract for the poles for a new
line to parallel the present Nelson
& Vernon line into Greenwood,
and also, it is stated, to go on to
Camp McKinney.
Whether all these lines will be
built this year remains to be seen,
as such work runs into big money.
But the chances are that some of
$he,contracts will go through and
that the.whole Boundary country
will have a greatly improved
telephone service.
E. A. Smith has purchased the
interests of Luke Shore in the B. C.
Chop House.
Father. Pa liner, of Trail, held services in the school house yesterday
morning and evening.
The school bell will be rung half
an hour before church services tomorrow, morning and evening.
F. YV. Stevens, engineer for Mann,
Foley, Bros. & Larson, came in
from Spokane on Thursday night.
Stanley Mayull, of the B. C. M.
Syndicate, returned from Spokane
on Thursday, where he has heen

The beef famine is broken. On
Wednesday Harvey Harris, of P.
Burn& & Co.'s local branch, returned from Brooklyn, driving 35
head of cattle overland. He had
three assistants on the journey, and
part of the drove was left at the
slaughter house on the summit, to
supply railway camps thereabouts.
In the Mining Field
Every week sees renewed activity
in every mining section that surrounds Cascade. There is no longer
any doubt but that a searon of unparalleled activity in the Boundary
and Christina districts is at hand,
and miners of experience assert
that this year's development will
reveal some remarkably rich showings.
While the big ore dykes of the
Boundary creek district, that have
been worked on for years, are improving daily and getting ready
for shipment as soon as the railway
reaches them, one or two other
sections are rapidly coming to the
front and being taken hold of by
capitalists. Within the last few
weeks the interest has heen increasing in Camp McKinney.
There is great attraction for this
camp, the only one in the Boundary
country that has yet brought forth
actual dividends���those from the
Cariboo. As a result, deals are
made in that camp almost every
Another camp that will he the
scene of much development this
year is the Burnt Basin, near Gladstone. While free gold is found on
most of its claims, there are excellent showings of galena also.
Many deals have already been
made, and a dozen or more concerns are only waiting for the disappearance of the snow to begin
active development.
John Bull. ��� Gladstone' > was
thrown into excitement last Saturday by the news of an important
strike,on the John Bull group.
The property has been under
development for several months,
and after crosscutting the lead for
some distance, a tunnel was started
on it. Only a couple of inches of
ore was found at first, but this has
now widened out to 20 inches in
the face of the tunnel. The ore is
a sulphide, carrying gold and copper, and is a most encouraging
sign. The property is now being
incorporated as the John Bull
Mines, Ltd., with a capital of
Eva Bell.���This Burnt Basin
property was bonded this week, by
the owners, John Rogers,"of Grand
Forks, and H. L. Jones', of Rossland, for $23,000, to English capitalists. Assays have given $77 in
gold, copper and silver, and the
lead lias been traced for 1300 feet.
The Eva Bell adjoins the Solid
Gold group, which was recently
sold by Richard Cooper for $40,000,
of which he is reported to have received $5,000 in cash. The Solid
Gold group is said to have ore on
every one of its four claims. The
Jenny Lind, one of this group, has
20 inches of clean galena ore in
sight, carrying gold and copper,
between porphyry and diorite.
Big Bonanza.���The Big Bonanza
group, located last summer on McRae creek, right across the railway I
line, has been worked all winter by
its owners, E. Hamlin, J. Hughes
H. Loomis and F. Lang. It occupies the ground where the sawmill was first located. Hughes and
Hamlin,i.re in town with some fine
looking ore, taken from a 25 foot
shaft. Assays give $11 in gold
and 4J per cent Copper.
Iu the Districts
This week a large block of Elmore w��s sold in Grand Forks.
The Mother Lode, it is said, will
increase its force to 100 men in the
near future.
A dea-1 is on for the sale of the
Pilot Beacon on Sutherland creek,
which has an excellent showing.
W. H. Norris and James Beck-
with are preparing to crosscut the
ledge on the Lygia, situated on
Ingram mountain near Midway.
A. E. J. Percival, .of Spokane,
with Mr. Jameson, have bonded the
Pender, an old location in Camp
McKinney. It will be floated in
J. A. Odell, of Spokane, was in
Cascade Thursday, on his way from
Camp McKinney to Rossland. Before reaching here he had placed
100,000 shares in a new company
formed to develop the Gordon claim
in Camp McKinney, which he had
just acquired and begun development on.
Satisfactory returns were recently secured from a shipment of
copper ore from the La Fleur-Com-
stock, the B. A. O.'s recently purchased property, near Nelson,
Wash., and were so good that it has
been decided to operate the mine
on an extensive scale.
Harry Denton has sold the
Mabel claim and one-half of the
Bessie, on McRae creek, to August
Reischl. The showing is good and
the properties will be developed hy
a company to be formed at an early
date. Mr. Denton will begin work
on his Red Chief group, in the
Burnt Basin in a short time.
T. Mayne Daly, of Rossland, W.
A. MacDonald, of Nelson, and Andrew Kelly, of Brandon, were in
Cascade on Tuesday. They were
en route to the Golden Crown mine
in Wellington camp. The property has a 322 foot tunnel and a
vertical shaft of 150 feet. This is
one of the big gold-copper propositions that is supplied with machinery and is expected to be ready to
ship when the railway reaches it.
The Snowshoe, one of the oldest
properties in Greenwood camp, has
been bonded by Robert Wood, Robert Denzier and Thos. McDonnell
to J. W. Astley, representing the
Kootenay Mining Syndicate, for
$70,000. It adjoins the Old Ironsides, Stemwinder and Rawhide,
and has an incline shaft of 170
feet, with over 200 feet of crosscuts.
The mammoth gold-copper ledges
are typical of the camp, and the
ore is self-fluxing.

evening was 11 great succens. About
30couples t<��ok part and thoroughly
enjoyed themselves to the jtiUajie of
the Cascade orchestra. A feature
of the evening was the Irish quadrilles, in which no one was allowed
to take part unless decorated with
a green riblion. Mine Host McDonald, of the Grand Central
hotel, where the dance was given,
did everything to make his guests
at home. Green predominated
everywhere, out of compliment to
old Erin's patron saint. Mr. Haz-
elton, under whose direction the
dance was conducted, and Floor-

credit, for the successful termination
of the affHir.

The provincial government���the
much vaunted Semlin-Martin government���is growing decidedly extravagant.     If any one doubts the
truth of this plain   statement  of
j fact, let him examine the corduroy
road, just above the  bridge that
crosses   Kettle river  at   Cascade.
Here, if he searches carefully, he
will find that the government has
thrown its widely heralded promises of economy to the winds, and
in the face of a watchful and critical people, has actually spent about
$85 in repairs���:hat is, when the
vouchers   are accepted  and  paid.
iWhat matters it that before election explicit promises of theconduct
cf an economical   administration
' were made.    Here is the proof, the
.indisputable    evidence    of     this
(equai.tiering of the people's  money
I.���the   money that hard  working
miners,   farmers,   tradesmen   and
'others   pay   into   the    provincial
coffers.     With that $35���more or
less--repairs   were   made   in   the
'roadway to the extent of 30 feet���
'������most needful repairs,it is true; but
just think of the  expenditure  of
that vast sum of filthy lucre right
close to Cascade 1    Will  a special
commission be appointed to investigate this transaction by the agents
of this government of ours ?     We
wot i.ot.     But, surely there must
be some mistake about it, for in the
past the government, through its
agents, has been  most careful   to
forget   that   there was a road in
these parts.   It was off the map, so
far    as    public   improvements���
greatly  needed, too, be it said���
were concerned.
Seriously, however, we should be
thankful for small favors, even
when doled out in infinitesimal
doses. It may be the precursor of
better things. Let us hope so, at
least. Everything comes to he
who waits, and we may receive
some recognition from the powers
that he at Victoria, if we live long
As far as can be learned from
the estimates, Cascade and its
vicinity stands small chance of
having anything done by the government to the  roads and trails
March 18, 18W
this year. In order to get at the
facts on the subject, the publishers
of the Record wrote J. M. Martin,
our member, on the subject, but
learned nothing further than the
information contained in the estimates. A letter addressed to
Leonard Norris, the government
agent at Vernon, brought the following reply.
"I beg to say that ample provision was made during the last
session of the legislature for public
works and improvements in and
around Cascade. Cascade, however,
is no longer iu East Yale, and no
longer in my district. I have,
therefore, to refer you to Mr. Kir-
kup, the gold commissioner at
Rossland, for particulars."
Cascade ie still in the East Yale
judicial district, but not in the
East Yale electoral district. That
is, we are in Rossland riding, and
must look to Mr. KirkUp who is
now absent (for the purpose of
recuperation) for a share of the
$15,000appropriated for the riding.
It so happens that Rosslanders
claim this sum is totally inadequate for their needs alone. It is,
therefore, easy to see.that, with
Mr. Martin living in Rossland, the
claims of this section will have to
be presented and pushed with much
energy and persistence to receive
anything like the share we are entitled to. Having been kicked out
of East Yale for election purposes,
we must get our share from the
Rossland riding.
Seemingly, it follows that no
part of the $13,000 placed in tbe
estimates for public works in East
Yale, or of the $4,000 for construction of wagon road on main Kettle
river, will be spent within many
miles of Cascade���no matter how
urgent the need. If we are placed,
as it were, between two millstones,
and get nothing from either riding,
it will not be difficult to locate the
Telephone building in these
parts promises to be active this
year. With the new line projected
by the Columbia Telephone and
Telrgrnph Co., (in connection with
the Spokane and British Columbia
Co.,) and the Inland Co. building
to the boundary line from Bossburg, we should have a satisfactory
service before long. Telephone
officials are pretty thick all throu >h
this Kection just at present, and
when the snow goes off they will be
still more plentiful.
Canadian capital now controls
the grent Republic mine, fifty
miles south of Cascade. The deal
was made this week, on a basis of
$2.50 per share ($1 par value) for
925,000 shares. The Spokane
stockholders do not relinquish their
entire holdings, hut figure that
what they have left will soon be
equal iu value to what they sold.
This is but the beginning of some
big deals for properties in this marvelous mineral belt.

whole government without in the
least affecting our present minister
of mines.
An editor's life is one continual
path of roses. For instance, a
short time ago a tough entered the
office of the Fernie Free Press, and
when the editor forcibly objected
to having his door kicked in, the
visitor pulled his gun and fired at
the quill driver. As luck would
have it, the hobo took poor aim
and the Free Press appeared that
week as usual.
The provincial cabinet has been
reconstructed and Hon. J. Fred
Hume has been relieved of the
office of provincial secretary, retaining the important office of minister of mines. It is quite proper
that this office should go to the
member from one of the leading
mining sections of the province.
Assurances have been received
that the appointment of an additional justice of the peace, and the
establishment of a small debts
court in Cascade, will soon be
made. It is to be hoped, that the
attorney-geneial will not forget n 11
about it.
Advertising Hints
A readable ad. in a readable
paper will be read.
It is always better to advertise a
little too' much than not quite
A little advertising may he unprofitable when a great deal would
pay handsomely.
There is not a business under the
sun that cannot be benefited by
judicious newspaper advertising.
Change your advertising matter
frequently. It will be more attractive if freshened up occasionally.
"I can sell goods without advertising," say one class of business
men���so called. So they can get
from Cascade to Vancouver by
riding a horse or going afoot, hut
the man who takes the cars gets
there a great deal quicker and
much more easily. Advertising is
to anv kind of business exactly
what the railway is in transportation.

The townsite owners of Grand
Forks are, in many respects, live,
enterprising people. In the past
there have been differences among
the people of that town, which
have not helped its growth or standing, but since its lusty little neighbor, a mile away, took on new life
and has become of some importance
in the world, the old town people
have been quickened into unwonted
acjivity. This is certainly commendable. In the course of making
their advantages known to all who
run and read, they have been using
many columns of matter, in coast
and Kootenay papers. The advertisements were well gotten up
and will doubtless be of some bene
fit, with the 7x11 picture of the
town in the foreground.
But the Bftcord cannot let one
claim made in these advertisements
pass without a word of correction.
Grand Forks claims to be the
" gateway " of the Boundary country, and this misleading statement
is set forth in large type. As a
matter of fact there is, and by the
very nature of things can only be,
but one gateway to the promised
land, and that is Cascade. Cascade
is the first Boundary town reached
by the Columbia & Western branch
now building and when the Kettle
River railway is built this year, it
will he the first town reached hy
that long-projected line. Cascade
is now known far and wide as the
Gateway City, and undoubtedly
will always retain that distinction.
Since the stages have resumed
stopping over night both ways at
Cascade, and thereby allowing
passengers some little comfort in
their perigrinations to and from
the now much advertised Boundary
country, the stage owners have
made some changes in conducting
the line which are thought to be
for the better. Among these, Fremont Rogers, formerly located at
Bossburg for the company, is now
general superintendent of the entire line. Mr. Rogers is popular
with travellers and will doubtless
make a good official. He informs
the Record that he proposes to do
everything possible for the comfort
and convenience of travellers���a
most welcome innovation to the
many who patronize the line, It
is believed that his selection is one
thnt will prove eminently satisfactory.
Parson McCoy, of the Cascade
Presbyterian church, is happy this
we*k, on account of the arrival a
few days since of the beautiful cabinet organ from Toronto. It will
be used in church service for the
first time tomorrow. Heretofore
Mr. McCoy has acted as pastor,
preacher, janitor, leader, chorister,
etc. It is hoped that he will now
be relieved of one or two of these
more or less onerous duties.
The publishers of the Record
were recently advised by a Toronto
wholesale paper house not to have
shipments routed by way of Bossburg, as duty would be collected at
thut point. The advice was further
offered to ship by way of Sicamous
and Penticton. Why not send via
Atlin and Wrangel, while they are
at it ? Routed iu that manner, a
shipment would get here about as
soon as though sent via Penticton
to Cascade. This Toronto house,
however, has now learned that this
district is Canadian territory, and
that goods can he bonded and shipped via American lines, with some
chance of getting to destination in
a reasonable time, and without
travelling over a large share of the
North American continent to get
here. This is *merely a sample
case, and can be numerously duplicated, and is cited to show how
little the average eastern wholesaler
knows of the geography and conditions prevailing in the Boundary
district. However, the Record and
other live Boundary papers will
keep up the effort to enlighten, and
lifter a while easterners will learn
that the Boundary country is on
this earth, and that it is one of the
richest and most important sections
in the entire Dominion. Already
there are evidences that success is
attending the effort.
With theadventof springandbad
roads, road freight rates are ascending skyward, and the tribulations of
the merchant who has not taken
time by the forelock, and gotten in
his spring stock, are but just beginning. From now on the roads
will grow worse steadily for some
time, and with the enormous
amount of freighting needful until
the iron horse reaches here, some
time in June, many parts of our
main road will be well nigh impassible.
Along this line a recent incident
affords food for thought. A Vancouver merchant routed a shipment
to a Greenwood concern by way of
Brooklyn. Al the latter place it
was gathered in by Contractor W.
E. C Koch, who hauled it to Greenwood, and charged a nice, large,
fat rate for hauling. The goods
were refused, brought back to Cascade and stored, and are accumulating expenses at the rate of one
dollar per day. The original invoice was small, only $76, but so
far the charges are $60. Several
persons have already heen taught a
lesson by this incident.
Mail matter from the Kootenays
to the Boundary still continues to
occupy two days in transit, all because the mail contract calls for
hauling from Marcus instead of
from Bossburg. Inspector Dorman
says that the change can only be
made by the American postal
authorities. If any one of the
hundreds of readers of the Record,
on either side of the line, has any
influence with Uncle Sam, and can
induce him to speedily make this
change, there are several thousand
Boundary residents who will be
grateful for the kindly act.
Give my love to Nellie, Jack, and
tell her I am hoarding at the Columbia Dining Parlor. It is the
best place in Cascade.

Is Gradually  (letting Worse in the
Boundary Country.
The following is what some of
the Boundary papers think of the
poor mail service with which we
Are being served at the present
time. It is respectfully commended
to the attention of Inspectors Dorman and McLeod, and to Postmaster-General Mulock:
The mail service between Ross-
land and Greenwood continues to
get worse daily. Once upon a time
not many years ago, Rossland mail
reached Greenwood in less than
two days. Five days is about the
swiftest service at present.���Greenwood Times.
It is bad enough to wait several
moons for a letter to come from the
east, but when you have to wait 30
hours longer for it to come from
Grand Forks, a distance of one
mile, it is about time to make a
roar. Such a condition of affairs
in the postal service are inexcusable, and ought to be remedied at
once.���Columbia Review.
Something is radically wrong
with the mail system between this
place and Rossland. Theoretically
we are supposed to have a daily
mail connection with that point,
but as a matter of fact the mail
from Uossland arrives any old time
that seems convenient. Sometimes
we get three mails a week, some-
four, rarely moie, Up to date the
post office here has been unable to
determine whether the fault lies
with the exchange office at Marcus,
the stage company which has the
contract, or just where it does lie.
But it is a matter which should be
investigated by the proper officials.
and at once ; not after waiting a
year or so, as seems to be the general rule for doing business with the
government.���Grand Forks Miner.
Provincial Cabinet Changes
An extra to the British Columbia Gazette, received in Cascade
this week announces a readjustment of the portfolios in ihe Provincial Cabinet which will now be
constituted as follows :
Hon. Dr. McKtv.hnie, President
of the Council ; Hun. G. A. Semlin,
Premier and Provincial Secretary ;
Hon. B.C. Cotton, Chief Cmnmis-
tiioner of Lands and Works and
Minister of Finance ; Hon. J. Fred
Hume, Minister of, Mines; Hun.
Joseph Martin, Attorney (jeiiera-l.
The change has been made at
the request of Mr. Semlin, who
owing tn advancing years, feels
himself incapable of withstanding
the strain necessitated by the incumbency of the position of Chief
Minister of Lands and Works Department, the most onerous post in
the Cabinet. The portfolio of Minister of Mine", hitherto combined
with that of Provincial Secretary,
is now a separate position, the increase in the duties of the office
rendering it necessary that. Mr.
Hume devote the whole of his
attention to it.
An exchange furnishes the following little story which points a
very clear moral : "Said a local
merchant the other day: 'Have
you noticed the fine advertisement
I have on the fence out wpst of
town ?'' No,' renlied the eustnmer.
'but if you will send the fence
around to my house some day I
will read it over, and see what you
are dealing in. Fact is, I'm reading
newspapers and don't get much
chance to study fenceology.' "
