THE CASCADE RECORD
Published in the Interest* of the Boundary and Christina Lake  Mining Districts
Vol. I.
CASCADE, B. C, SEPTEMBER 30, 1899.
No. 47.
SE WIS BUMED TO DEATH
And a Solid Block in the Heart of Cascade
Lies in Smoldering Ruins.
NO CLUE TO TBE ORIGIN OF THE AWFUL, OVERWHELMING CONFLAGRATION
Alex. Arvoii Was Pinned by Palling Timbers, and Was Roasted to Death-
Loss Was $23,000, Insurance $4,450.
Cascade received a terrible baptism of fire last night. One man,
Alex Arvoll, was burned to death,
while heroically endeavering to
save others. The money loss, an
estimated today is $23,000, with insurance of $4,450. The burned
area consists of one solid block, in
the heart of the city, all built up,
bounded by First and Central
avenue* and , First and Second
streets west.
It was 12:30 this morning when
the dreaded cry of fire resounded
through our streets and the fire
alarm triangle began to be rung.
Fire was first discovered by Mrs.
Mahoney, who had a room in the
Britannia hotel. As she looked
out of her window the one-story
shacks hetween the Britannia and
Club hotel was all ablaze, from
what source is not known. Quicker
than lightning the flames leaped
up and were soon licking up both
hotels and spreading westward,
fanned by a northwest wind.
In quick succession, the Grand
Central hotel, Railroad Headquarters hotel, Scandia hotel, Francis
& Milne and the Hotel Montana
were eaten up by the fiery demon
and reduced to ashes. Six hotels
and one cigar store were destroyed,
in an hour's time, and nothing remains today but a heap of smoldering embers, marking what was
once the busiest part of the Gateway City.
But Little Wu Saved.
When the fire first broke out it
was evident that the block, if not
the entire city, was doomed, hut it
was hard to realize it. Everyone
of the buildings ' had sleeping
occupants, some of whom escaped
with hut scanty attire. When it
was realized that everything in the
path of the fire demon must go, a
frantic effort was made to save
goods, furniture, personal effects,
etc., but little, however, was rescued from the flames.
Then a futile effort was made to
save the last building on the block,
the Montana, hy blowing up the
Scandia with dynamite. A box of
50 pounds was touched off with a
fifty-foot fuse. The building rose
with a deafening ronr and then
collapsed, and the flames rushed
on as though nothing had happened, engulfing the Montana and the
log building in the rear.
Horrible Death of Mr. Arvoll.
Alex Arvoll, who had been employed by 0. J. Eckstorrn, was one
of the hardest workers, of the several hundred willing one's endeavoring to rescue property. He was
imprisoned on the sidewalk in front
of the Scandia by falling walls,
and before he could possibly he
rescued, the sea of flame swept over
him, carrying him to eternity in a
most horrible manner.
Several times efforts were made
to drag him out, but human endurance could not possibly stand
that intense heat. He could he
heard piteously calling for help,
yet it was not possible to get him
out in time.
When the dynamite was placed
in the Scandia, loud warnings
were given in every direction to
give the building a wide berth.
Arvoll saw a drunken man run
back into the doomed building and
he rushed after him to get him out.
The man was saved, hut at the
cost of his brave rescuer's life. It
was a heroic action, and his name
will live long in the memory of
those who witnessed it.
Willing Hindi, Bat Little Water.
Every man in town organized
himself into a fire laddie, and
splendid work was done in many
instances. With no water supply
and no fire fighting appliances, it
was a foregone conclusion as to the
result, when the flames were fairly
started. No human ingenuity
could save the fated block Mark
Tracy with his water wagon did
excellent service, continually refilling it at the river as fast as the
bucket brigade emptied it.
This water was used to save the
buildings on the south side of First
avenue, and though at times it
seemed doubtful, the effort was
finally successful. Angus Cameron's postoffice building was one of
these, and the heat was so intense
that, it'blistered the water carriers,
but they held on and it was saved.
The postmaster was away on Huckleberry mountain, but his brother
Jim   and sister Kate were there.
The same experience was had with
the Kelliher building adjoining,
and also with the feed barn and
old custom house.
The Cascade Drug Co. and Wm.
Wolverton's pioneer store were also
given attention with water and
wet blankets and the fire prevented
from spreading eastward on the
street.
Losses are Nearly $25,000.
The losses by the fire foot up to
between $20,000 and $25,000. The
insurance all told is $4,450, written
by George K. Stocker in the Western, of Toionto, and the Phoenix
Assurance, of London. An estimate of the losses and insurance,
in detail, is as follow**:
C H. May, Hotel Montana,
building $2,000; stock $500, cash
$300; no insurance.
Oscar Stensjlrom, Scandia House,
building $1,600, stock and furniture and fixtures $1,800; no insurance.
B. F. VanCleve, Railway Headquarters hotel building, $1,200;
buildings adjoining$600; insurance
applied for a week ago, $950.
C. J. Eckstorrn, stock, fixtures
and personal effects, $2,000; insurance, $1,000.
Francis & Milne, building and
stork, $1,000; no insurance.
Flood & McDonald, Grand Central hotel building, stock snd fixtures, $4,000; insurance, $1,500.
Nelson, Olson & Bergman, Britannia hotel, building, stock and
fiixtures, $3,500; insurance, $1,000.
Townsite company, vacant building, $150; no insurance.
S. F. Quinlivan, Club hotel,
building $1,600; stock, fixtures and
furniture  $2,000;   nn    insurance.
I. Langley, cash $800.
Cinders.
"I never saw a hotter fire," was
the universal verdict.
Comparatively little was saved
from most of the buildings.
Not a general merchandise store
was located in the burned section.
C. J. Eckstorrn was fortunate in
saving hoth his piano,and billiard
table.
The water power boys, among
many others, rendered splendid
service.
S. F. Quinlivan says he expects
to rebuild, and others are considering it.
C. H. May, of the Montana, who
was burned out this morning, has
leased the International and will
open up next week.
Coroner Smith, of Grand Forks,
has sent word that under the circumstances he deems it unnecessary to hold an inquest over the
remains of Alex Arvoll. Arrangements are being made for interment.
The next meeting of the board of
license commissioners will be held
at the Miners' Exchange hotel,
Eholt, on Saturday, October 14th,
as will be seen from notice in another column, 14 applications for
licenses have already been   made.
A young fellow named J. R.
Langhill was employed yesterday
assisting Mrs. Bampfield in doing
some packing. Later she missed
some bills, small silver and several
articles. On being accused,Lang-
hill restored everything hut the
hank bills, saying he had not seen
them. Constable Darraugh was
absent, escorting a prisoner from
Columbia to Rossland, while Constable Dinsmore was away.
IT IS GOOD FOR CASCADE
Water Power Being Taken Over By a
Strong English Company.
Big Oaofi of Men to be Pat to Work atOace
oo Extensive Improvements.
No one thing has occurred in
months in the entire Boundary district, to give the country the prominence or more stability than the
extensive improvements now being
carried on for the harnessing of the
mighty cascades of the Kettle river
at this place.
Reliable information has reached
the Record that our magnificent
water power improvements will now
be carried on with the utmost rapidity. We have learned through
private sources that an option on
the power is now owned hy the
London and B. C. Goldfields, Ltd.
The B. A. C. and the London and
B. C. are two of the strongest corporations from London operating
in this province, and it is fortunate
for Cascade to have one of these
big concerns directly interested
here.
This week the force under Foreman Simmons has been making the
big dam grow bigger, and will soon
he increased to 20 men: S. F.Quinlivan received the contract for preparing the rock foundations for the
large power house. He is now trying to secure 50 men, and can use
60 or 70. In a short time probably
100 men or more will be employed
here, which means a steady payroll
of from $5,000 to $7,500 per month
for months to come. 2
THE   CASCADE  RECORD
September SO, 1890
FROM SOUTH STAGE ROUTE IS CHEAPEST.
But From Rossland and Nelson tbe Alt-Rail
Route Costs Least.
A couple of weeks since the Record published a table of railway
fares, showing the difference in cost
of getting into the Boundary country all rail and by the old rail and
stage route. That table was based
on the assumption that the C. P.
R. charge would be 5 cents per
mile. As it is nearly 8 cents, it
makes it still more favorable to the
stage lines. Here is the exact cost
to reach Cascade hy each route:
From Uossburg���
Bossbnrg to Rossland by rail  $2 25
Overnightln Rossland  200
Rossland to Cascade bj rail     5 96
Total bv all rail route $10 90
Bossbnrg to Casoade by stage    4 00
Difference in favor of stage route  ... M 80
From Rossland���
Rossland to Bossburg by rail (3 25
Bossburg to Cascade by stage    4 00
Total by stags and rail route    $8 25
Rossland all rail to Cnscade  5 95
Difference favor all rail route    ..$80
From Nelson-
Nelson to Bossburg by rati $4 50
Bossbarg to Casoade by stage    4 00
Total, rail and stage from Nelson .... $8 50
Nelson to Casoade, all rail    5 75
Favor of all rail route from Nelson.... (2 75
It will thus be seen that all passengers from the south can save
money by using the old route, and
those from Rossland can do nearly
as well.
Midway Is Like Cascade.
Reports come to hand of typhoid
fever in Nelson, Rossland, Grand
Forks and Greenwood, but there is
none in Midway. Air, water and
sanitary conditions are all too good
here for the disease to take hold.���
Midway Advance.

VALUE OF WATER POWERS.
Cheap power is one of the greatest essentials to the growth of industrial life, especially in the west,
where the population is so sparse
and the demand so much less than
in the thickly populated sections
of the far east. The cheapest form
of energy is water power, as when
once secured and properly harnessed it costs hut little to run.
Almost'within the town of Cascade is located the only extensive
water power to be found in the
entire Boundary country. This
power is now being developed, and
when completed about 10,000 h-p.
will he available. The value of
this power to the mining and other
industries can be noted by the
efforts being made by other concerns farther up Kettle river to
conserve it in some small degree
for local purposes.
The handwriting is on the wall
that water power transmitted by
that inexplicable thing which we
call electrical energy, will in a
reasonable time be in use in the
majority of the Boundary and
Christina mines. What Bonning-
ton Falls is to Nelson and Rossland the Cascade water power will
be to this entire section.
That other industries will in due
time follow and cluster around the
source of power itself, does not ad
mit of a doubt. It is as sure as
fate. The value of such a power
is difficult to estimate, but when
the conditions are right a flourishing community has never failed to
result.
' The editor of the Rat Portage
Miner, who was recently in British
Columbia, has considerable to say
about Rossland. and but little of
his remarks are to the credit of the
great gold-copper camp. He thinks
the Toronto investors in Rossland
may yet pay dear for their whistle.
He must have been looking through
green glasses, as he says the formation is a "green stone." It ie
hardly likely, however, that Rossland's people will lie awake nights
over the dubious prognostications
of the Rat Portage Miner, which
apparently delights in disparaging
British Columbia.
NOTE AND COMMENT.
���
Coast papers of the opposition
hue affect to see in the recent cm-
collation of the voter's list at Victoria another evidence of an approaching appeal to the people.
The Transvaal crisis is still in itB
most acute stages. While both
sides, at this writing, seem to be
playing for time, they are getting
on the very edge of the danger
line.
Next Tuesday the long-looked
for international yacht races will
begin. This is the kind of sport on
which Sir Thomas Lipton, owner
of the Shamrock, is said to have
spent Something over a cool million
already.
H. Rider Haggard, the popular
story writer, was recently in British Columbia, on his way to the
Klondike. He will never know
what he missed by not taking in
the Boundary till he tries it at
some future date.
A modus vivendi appears to have
been declared in the political war
on the coast.
Many estimates have been made
as to the date of the final completion of the new Boundary railway,
and all of them had to he revined
as unforeseen contingencies arose.
It now seems likely that the track
will be laid to Midway by the
middle of October.
Iti dozens of instances the construction of the Boundary branch
of the Columbia & Western railway has resulted in opening up
valuable ore bodies. Mary of
these will result in greatly enhancing the ore tonnage of the new
railway when completed.
Admiral Dewney has at last arrived at New York City, and the
American people are now going
wild in their effort to do him honor.
As Dewey is a modest man all
this sort of thing will probably
make him tired, but it is one of the
evils that great men must perforce1
put up with.
Next Tuesday the Spokane exposition will open and continue
till October 17th. This year the
mineral display promises to be the
most prominent feature of the entire fair, as nearly 90 different
camps will have ore samples there.
It will be well worth going a long
distance to bee.
is being cleared, a force is at work
again on the big dam, and a contract has been let for rock work
for the power house. This means
a good sized pay roll for months to
come. This power will be an important item in the development
of the gigantic ore deposits of the
Boundary.
British Columbia will make a
really fine display of ore at the
Paris exposition, according to Minister of MineB Hume. Three or
four carloads have already been
sent to Ottawa, and two more are
expected to follow. Provincial
Mineralogist Robertson is now on
his way to the Dominion capital to
look after the exhibit.
Work has resumed in earnest on
the plant of the Cascade Water,

It is a fortunate thing for the
Boundary that its wealth is largely
in its copper mines. Now that
transportation has almost reached
the shipping mines, the world's
supply of copper will soon begin to
he considerably augmented. Another good feature is the probability that the price of copper will
likely continue at the present high
figure for years to come. It means
great things for the Boundary.

The Vancouver Province, Mr.
Bostock's paper, says that complaints are freely made, and with
good reason, of the inadequacy of
the postal service in parts of this
province." It is pleasant to note
that even Mr Bostock's organ has
discovered this fact, which has been
a fact of common notoriety in
Kootenay and Yale for many
moons.
Fire at Brooklyn.
A fire broke out at Brooklyn, on
Lower Arrow lake, a few days ago,
and did considerable damage before it spent itself. The flames
btarted in DesBrisay's store where
the post office was located, and the
entire contents were destroyed.
There waf insurance of $600 on the
general merchandise stock. The
fire burned down .several of the unoccupied buildings adjoining.
Strike on Norway Mountain.
Mr.'Griswold, who is in charge
of the working force of the Norway
Mountain Gold and Copper company, near Gladstone, states that
he has made a discovery on one of
their claims (the Mohican) of
more importance than anything
found there heretofore. It is a
five-foot ledge of No. 1 quartz assaying 9100 in gold. It looks exactly
like the ore in the Minnie Bell,

i BY THE WAYSIDE j
A few weeks ago Robert T. Low-
ery, the editor, financier and gen-
erallissimo in chief of the New
Denver Ledge, threatened to make
;a trip into the Boundary country
���whatever the consequences might
be. Wednesday he carried the
threat into execution, and while
doing it, of course admired Can-
cade. Just how the boundless
Boundary struck the seer from the
Lucerne of America will doubtless
up pen r shortly.
Prof. E. Hamilton Sharpe, a venerable gentleman with a pocketful
of C. P.'R. passes and special letters to subordinate officials, was in
Cascade Monday, to get a glimpse
of the Boundary. Grand Forks
was his destination, but he could
not resist the temptation to stop in
the Gateway City instead. Prof.
Sharpe occupied a high position in
the imperial university of Kyoto,
Japan, for many years, and will
sail for the land of the Mikado on
the 9th proximo from Vancouver.
He was greatly taken with Cascade
and its site, and predicted great
things for it in the future. The
professor has spent some time in
traveling over British Columbia
previous to hi* departure for the
Orient; and he never traveled by
night when it could possjbly t e
avoided, as he wished to see the
country.. . -
-%*
Joseph Moris, the man who made
possible the writing of the "Million Dollar Check," recently published by the Spokesman-Review,
was in Cascade Wednesday. With
Joe Bourgeois in July, 1890, he
located the War Eagle, Centre Star,
Idaho, Iron Marik and Virginia at
Rossland, and for recording the
papers showed Col. Topping, now
of Trail, where to locate an ex ten -
tion���which proved to be the great
LeRoi of the present day. Of
course he had not the faintest idea
of their value, and like all prospectors, lacked the means to develop. However the claims brought
what was then a good price, three
locations selling for $25,000 and
the other two for a similar amount.
. -%>
Moris has been around not a little since selling out the richest
claims in Kootenay. When the
Klondike excitement was raging in
1897, he piloted a party over the
much advertised "Spokane overland route," taking four months
for the trip. This summer he haB
���ipent considerable time in the Si��\-
ilkameen, and is not half so enthusiastic about that section as many
that have heen in there. He al<<o
went up the west fork of Kettle
river, and was pleased at the showings from there. At present Moris
is paying special attention to the
development <>f two properties on
Sheep creek, which he hopes will
make LeRois.
The advent of the Spokane
Northern Telegraph Co. to the
Boundary, now in use to Midway and Greenwood, and being
constructed to Grand Porks and
Cascade, is already giving cheap
service to this section. A 10-word
telegram can now he sent to any
Kootenay point from Boundary
towns for 25 cents. This is quite a
reduction from the Klondike prices
heretofore charged bv the telephone
companies.

RICH COPPER ORB NEAR CASCADE.
The Helen E, at Rock Cut Improrlnj Steadily.
Of late good reports have been
coming in from the Helen E. mine
located near Rock Cut, about 10
miles from Cascade, and samples
of the nice appearing copper pyrite
ore from this property are getting
to be scattered around promiscuously.
P. A. Daggett of Spokane, secretary and manager of the Helen E
and Mother Lode Mining company*
was in Bossburg Monday, after a
visit to the Helen E. In conversation with the Journal scribe Mr.
Daggett stated that while they
are not exactly into the main ore
body, they have located it beyond
a question of doubt. In tbe drift
from the bottom of the 80-foot
shaft four well defined stringers of
ore have been cut. An assay from
the last went 18| per cent copper,
in all values $65 52. Tbe first
stringer, 12 inches wide, was encountered after drifting nine feet;
the second, 18 inches wide, was
struck 5 feet farther in; and another stringer, also about 18 inches
wide, was cut by running eight
feet. The stringers are twice as
far apart at the roof of the drift as
they are on the floor, two dipping
in opposite directions. On tbe Surface there are two parallel leads
exposed 30 feet apart, dipping
towards each other, indicating that
they are from the ^ame ore chute.
Mr. Daggett estimates, judging
from tbe direction of the several
strin >ers, that their source will be
tapped by sinking a winze a few
feet.
FOLEY BROS, & LARSON SECURE ANOTHER.
Qot ��� Contract tor a small Cut-oH Near
Spokane.
Some time since Foley Bros. &
Larson, among others, were reques
ted by the Great Northern to make
a bid for building a cut-off near
Spokane. Nothing whatever was
heard of the matter till this week.
It is now announced that the contract has been let by the Great
Northern to Foley Bros. & Larson
for the immediate construction of
about three miles and one-half of
cut-off which will connect the Spokane Falls & Northern with the
main line of the Great Northern
nearChattaroy. Mr. Larson stated
that work will begin just as soon
as men, teams and grading outfit
can be put upon the ground, and
will be hurried to early completion.
For about 15 mileB the lines are
parallel and but a short distance
apart. The cut-off will allow the
S. F. & N. trains to pass through
Hillyard hereafter and will make
the shops there convenient of access
to the S. F. & N. rolling stock.
You can get breakfast before the
early stage starts at tbe Queen

A trial shipment of 10 tons of
ore will be made from the Pathfinder to the Trail smelter. There
are 400 tons of ore on the dump.
The owners of the Oro Denoro in
Summit camp are talking of shipping 100 tons of ore daily as soon
as the railway is completed. The
main shaft is down 190 feet.
On the Earthquake, in Brown's
camp, a dozen men are working.
A tunnel has heen driven 130 feet,
and a crosscut 70 feet, assays on
the four-foot ledge running from
$6 to $14.
Percy F. Godenmath, the Spokesman-Review travelling correspondent, has organized the Wisconsin
Mines,' to acquire a promising
group of this name on Meyers
creek.   The capital is $50,000.
A strong Greenwood syndicate
has acquired control of the Review,
the best mine near Chesaw. It has
a 400-foot tunnel, a winze 180 feet
deep, and the ledge has been crosscut 46 feet. The vein is well defined, and the ore values run as
$135 in gold.
Some 500 tons of ore in 26 days,
was the record of the first mill run
of the Okanagan Free Gold Mines,
Ltd., and the clean-up amounts
to nearly $5,000. A dividend of
one-quarter cent per share has
been declared, at Rossland, payable October 15.
A fine strike has been made by
the railway graders on the Primrose, one of the Mother Lode group,
in Deadwood camp. The cutting
on the spur exposed a vein of yellow copper 37 feet wide that is
practically all ore. The Mother
Lode people are much pleased at
this unexpected find.
An open cut 25 feet wide has
been run on the Banner in Franklin camp, by Frank McFarland,
the pioneer of this new camp. On
the footwall was found a body of
galena, carrying gold, silver and
copper values. The Homestake and
Deadwood, owned by G. L. Wolfe,
are also being worked.
Last January James Ross and
McCuaig, Rykert & Co., of Montreal, paid the former owners $315,-
000 in cash for the B. C. mine in
Summit camp. It is estimated
that now there is $1,500,000 worth
of ore on the dump and in the
stopes.   The group of 11   claims
includes 500 acres. Shipments to
the Trail smelter will begin as soon
as the track gets to the ore dumps.
No Idle Mm Id the Boundary.
W. A. Scott, staff correspondent
of the Mining aud Scientific Press,
of San Francisco, has this to say of
the Boundary country, "The
mines in the Boundary district are
developed to a surprising extent,
and none of them seem to lack
money for development and equipment.' Before the close of the year
all the principal mines will be accessible to a railroad spur, when
they can begin shipping. I did
not see or hear of any idle property
in that section. The completion
of the railroad to Phoenix, Eholt
and Greenwood will bring in a
large amount of mining machinery
which has been ordered for the
various properties. It all looks
like the development of a great
mining region. There seem to he
ample justification for the erection
of smelters. There will be ores to
feed them."
