Vice President, Geo. K. Stocker.
Secretary, P. J. O'Reilly.
Treasurer, T. T. Carden.
Executive Committee, the above
four with Messrs. James H. Good,
T. F. Quinlivan and P. Rochussen.
The above were elected as the
first board of officers of the Cascade
Tax Payers' Association, which
perfected its organization last evening at the townsite office.
Last Monday evening a public
meeting of the citizens of Cascade
was held for the purpose of considering the advisability of sending
a memorial to the Lieutenant-Governor and our member, to call attention to the absolute needs of the
city and locality.' E. C. Eckstorrn
was chosen as temporary chairman
and P. J. O'Reilly as secretary.
The meeting was well attended by
representative citizens, who expressed themselves freely on ,the
objects of the gathering, and seemed
unanimous in regard to forming a
permanent organization. Accordingly the following committee was
appointed to draft a memorial
setting forth the needs referred to,
as follows : Messrs. Good, Stocker,
Rochussen, Quinlivan and Mc-
Master.
The following committee was also
selected on permanent organization : Eckstorrn, Black, Stocker,
Mayall and Willcox. An adjournment was then taken to Friday
evening.
PERMANENT ORGANIZATION.
Last evening another meeting
was held, as per adjournment, to
hear reports of the special committees. Chairman Eckstorrn of the
committee on organization, reported favorably on that subject and a
constitution was ��� submitted and
adopted, being signed by nearly
twenty of the leading men of the
city. Then followed the election of
officers with the result as above.
Chairman Good, of the committee on resolutions, read the result
of his committee's labors, the report being adopted.
This memorial, addressed to the
Honorable, the Lieutenant-Governor in Council, expresses the requir-
ments of this section of Yale district, and requests that adequate
school facilities be provided; that
another resident justice of the peace,
or a stipendary magistrate, be appointed; that an efficient police
officer be stationed here, to act in
conjunction with acting officer
Darcy; that trie" ^appropriation of
$400 by the last legislature for the
construction of a jail here, be made
at once available; that a small debt
court be established in this city;
that some appropriation be made
for roads and bridges and a local
superintendent of roadRand bridges
be appointed; that cases of charity
be provided for, and that needful
trails be constructed to outlying
mining camps.
This memorial met with the
hearty approval of the association,
and the secretary was directed to
send a copy to the lieutenant-governor and also to James M. Martin,
our member in the provincial parliament.
It was decided that the initiation
fee should be $2.50 for each member, and monthly dues thereafter
of $1.00. Several matters were
brought up and discussed by the
members, the universal feeling being that all n.:ust unite and work
together for the good of the city.
The association then adjourned till
next Wednesday evening.

Is Now Under Consideration-Favorable Answer Daily Expected.
Fired Two Shots.
John Doon and Thomas Florence
are now under sentence of six
months at hard labor and a fine of
5 each, or 12 months if the fine
is not forthcoming.
Doon succeeded in making away
with a dozen caddies of tobacco
from the B. C. Syndicate's store,
worth about $130. Later he offered it for sale at Francis & Milne's,
and through this means was arrested by Special Officer Morgan. He
was taken to ex-constable Elkins'
old quarters, but broke away, and
did not give up until Mr. Morgan
fired twice from a persuasive six-
shooter. He was then ironed hand
and foot.
In the meantime Florence had
missed his partner, and when he
showed himself was also taken into
custody. The trial was held the
same evening before Justice of the
Peace RochusBen, the'culprits receiving the sentence above referred
to, and were taken at once to the
Grand Forks jail by Special Officer
Chitwood. Efforts have been made
all the week to locate the stolen
goods, but thus far without success.
Thanksgiving at Cascade.
It is more than  probable that
Cascade will, in a very short time
Thursday wasThanksgiving day,
and was observed in Cascade by the
custom house being closed all day
and the post-office most of the day.
Turkeys and cranberries were in
great demand, and in nearly every
eating establishment the supply
did not begin to keep up with the
call.
The employees of the B. C. Syndicate's store, to the number of
eight, sat down to a sumptuous repast at the Cosmopolitan Cafe,
gotten up in George L. Hart's
superior style. It is needless to
say that full justice was done to
the choice menu prepared for their
delectation.
In the evening a ball was given
at the Railroad Headquarters Hotel, of which the lovers of dancing
were not slow to avail themselves,
keeping it up until the usual late
hour with Mr. Smith as master of
ceremonies.
have an excellent system of water
pipeB laid in its streets and avenues,
for domestic and other purposes.
This will doubtless be welcome news
to the rapidly growing community,
as water at 25 cents per barrel certainly has its drawbacks, even in
the Gateway City.
Several days ago,Foreman Simmons, of the Dominion Mining &
Development Agency, Ltd., the
strong corporation that is now developing our magnificent water
power, began a canvass of the bus-
ness men in regard to at once putting in a water and light plant.
He received a good deal of encouragement and at once submitted the
result of his investigations to the
officials of the company at Nelson.
The report was favorable, and
orders are expected any day to proceed with the work of laying the
water mains.
It is the intention to install a 60
horse power boiler with a 50 horse
power engine, to pump the water to
a large tank, to be erected on the
hill west of town. Then a four
inch main will be laid on First and
Second Avenues and on Main street,
which will be large enough to put in
hydrants for fire protection, if deemed desirable. This plant will be
located at the foot of the falls, near
the bridge, close to where preparations are being made for the construction of the larga power house.
If an electric light plant is installed, as seems likely, a motor
will be put in sufficient to run 500
sixteen candle power lights, and
the service will be extended all over
the city. Mr. Simmons is a practical electrician and machinist
of many years' experience, and
consequently thorough at honus in
matters of this kind. With Wm.
Anderson, the supervising engineer,
he assisted in the construction and
installation of the great Bonning-
ton Falls plant, near Nelson.
He informed the Record mnn
that if the reply from headquarters
was favorable, as he expected very
shortly, he wpnld have all the men
available on the. work at once, and
would push it to a quick completion.
Should the power company
decide not to put in a water system here this fall, there is still a
likelihood of one being installed by
other parties. Mr. F. W. Crocker,
who runs the water works in
Brooklyn,  has   been  in the city
several days, and says he can give
the desired service on short notice,
providing the field is clear. It is
therefore certain that Cascade will
have city water at an e*nly date.

proposition for the erection of a
business block with public hall and
lodge rooms on the second floor, on

It is almost impossible to rent a
house, a cottage or even living rooms
in Cascade. There is a golden opportunity for some enterprising
man to reap a harvest by erecting
small' cottages.
William Anderson, engineer for
the Cascade water power concern, is
in Seattle to get his wife and family. They are expected to arrive
any day and make their permanent home in Cascade.
John M. Smith, manager of the

in full control of the British American Corporation. The concern
acquired the Turner majority interest of some 205,000 shares by paying $7.25 per share, par value being
$5.00. In addition the vendors get,
the smelter clean up, which will
bring the price up to $8.50 per
share.
J. H. Kellogg has. began the'
erection of a store buildimz on First

I Am Thankful���
That I never praised the poetry
of my female friends.
That I never was sick more than
two weeks at a time.

without feeling sorry for it.
That I never abused the trust
put in me by my wife or the grocer.
That I never let my neighbors
know the extent of my learnings.
That I never patented anything
intended to revolutionize the age.
That I never used a word of
eight syllables when one of six
would do.
That I never let my tailor wait
more than nine months for his bill.

or canvasback duck.
Railway Laborer Killed.
Philips Haven, a native of Newfoundland, employed on the contract of John McDonnel, some 12
miles above Grand Forks, was instantly killed by a small piece of
flying rock the other day. With
others he was hurrying away from
the blast, when the stone, about the
size of an egg, struck him over the
heart, death being instantaneous.
No mark whatever was found on
the dead man's body.

SATURDAY, NOV. 26. 1898.
ORQANIZINO FOR BUSINESS.
Lust Monday night's public
meeting of citizens at the townsite
office was a representative gathering of those who have the best interests of the community at heart,
and was the first thus far held. It
was evident to all that they meant
business, and that the business was
to take up seriatim the several
pressing public needs of this city,
present them in proper shape to
the powers that be ; and, further,
to continue the effort along the
lines indicated until the matters
referred to received the attention
which they deserved and demanded.
These matters were the appointment of another justice of the
peace, the supplying of adequate
police protection, the construction
of a jail, better protection against
fire, better sanitary measures, better
school facilities, etc.
From the fact that the present
government received from the late
Turner government a legacy of a
good sized debt, the officials at present in power do not feel like going
to any expense unless absolutely
and positively necessary. Some of
these matters properly come under
that category, and through memorials to Lieutenant-Governor Mc-
Innes as well as to our member,
Mr. James M. Martin, it is fair to
believe that they will receive immediate attention, at least to some
extent.
Hut little has been done thus far
for Cascade by the government. In
fact it would require the use of a
magnifying glass of unusual power
to discover what had been done in
this locality. Some reason for this
may be found in the fact that the
district as one of the present importance is new, and that its actual
needs have not heretofore been appreciated. The Record believes
that when they are properly set
forth, and backed by men of influence and standing in the community, the appeal will not go unheeded. ''
But there are some matters pertaining to the welfare of the city
that it is not probable can be accomplished except by concerted
action by the residents themselves.
It was a happy thought to form a
permanent organization for the
purpose of taking up these matters,
iind giving them the attention they
would not otherwise receive. The
idea is an excellent one and will
undoubtedly be worked out to a
satisfactory solution by the members of the new organization". The
getting together at stated intervals
and discussing public matters, as
well as in taking such action as is
possible thereon will of itself be
productive of untold good to the
city. Let us all continue to pull
together, as we have started out,
and the benefit to the city, and
thus to ourselves, will more than
repay for the time, trouble and
money expended.
A town without optimistic citizens is only half a town, but one
full of pessimists is far worse off.
Fortunately, Cascade City has a
large number of the former class
and but few of the latter.
It is hard for the Spaniards to
accede all that the American peace
commissioners demand, as there
will he so little left. But the dons
might as well do the hest they can
with a bad case, and swallow their
medicine, bitter though it may be.
There is no alternative.
The silver cause has apparently
received a set-back by the recent
elections in the United States, complete returns from which show that
the gold men have gained in the
great majority of cases. This, however, is not to be attributed to the
waning of the white metal cause,
but rather to the popularity of the
war party, which happened to be
the Republican party.
Cascade needs a large hall, where
public meetings and entertainments
can he held. The citizens meetings
held this week could not be comfortably accommodated in any room
in town. Such a hall could also
be used for lodge, church and other
purposes, and would certainly prove
a paying investment to the enterprising man who would take the
matter up in earnest.
Cascade City is an infant yet
among Kootenay mining towns,
but it is rapidly growing out of its
swaddling clothes, and will soon become lusty and strong. By the
time the whistle of the first locomotive is heard there will have been
such changes for the better as will
astonish even those now resident
here. By that time also, the Record
predicts, there will he the best of reasons for anticipating the coming of
another railway line. The man of
wisdom is keeping an eye on Cascade.
Prospeetors who have been in the
Burnt Bafiin this fall are more than
enthusiastic over the result of even
the small development work thus
far done. Many experts who go in
there for the first time can scarcely
helieve their eyes when they see
fKee gold sticking out in so many
placeeraTid on so many claims.
That district will surely be a large
producer, but it will^require honest
development to prove depth and
values. Fortunately this is exactly
what it will have next spring
beyond a question of a doubt. Just
make a note of this.

THE   CASCADE   RECORD
BY THE WAYSIDE.
Notes by the Scribe.
It is difficult, in this rapidly grow*
ing locality, to convince government officials of the actual needs
of the town. They always labor under the impression that, at a distance of 300 miles or so, they can
size up the situation to better advantage. One such official, however, has changed his mind within
the past week, so far as Cascade
goes, and it happened in this way.
*%��
Unheralded and unannounced,
hist Office Inspector McLeod dropped in on Postmaster Cameron of
this city the other day, and his first
request was for a 3-cent stamp.
Now Mr. Cameron has repeatedly
sent in requisitions for such supplies as he thought needful to meet
the greatly increased demand, but
as often the number has been cut
down. So, it was with a smile of
satisfaction, not to say triumph,
that he informed Mr. McLeod that
he was entirely out of the 3-cent
likenesses of Her Majesty, to the
manifest surprise of the inspector.
The result was an order sent at
once to Rossland for a temporary
supply, and hereafter it is likely
that requests of this kind from
Cascade will be complied with at
Victoria.
The publishers of the Record have
called the Wayfarer's attention to
the following, from the Bossburg
Journal:
If there's a better town and one
more promising than Cascade, take
it all in all, it has yet to be pointed
out.���Record.
Of course it will have to be pointed out to those tenderfeet connected
with the Record, and the Journal,
takes pleasure in pointing to Bossburg, ourrounded by marble, coal,
gold, silver and copper mines; cattle, lumber, fruit and agricultural
lands. This fair city has the best
future of any place in the northwest.���Journal.
It is a poor sheet that will not
stick up for its own bailiwick
through thick an thin, and for this
the Wayfarer admires the Journal.
Bo^shurg is a lively little place,
and business excellent there at present, owing to the fact that several
hundred freighters are hauling
freight from that point to Cascade
for our enterprising huHness men.
The Wayfarer feels sure that none
of our people will begrudge the good
times thus brought to Bossburg and
so to Brother Anderson and his
Journal. All the same, even that
astute quill driver must acknowledge
that Cascade's location is a strategic one���one that is sure to place
it in the very forefront of the northwest cities in due time. In the
meantime we are pleased that Bossburg also shares in our prosperity.
Many and varied are the experiences of commercial travellers when
going through the Boundary country. The Wayfarer has on more
than one occasion met these
���' knights of the grip" hustling
around in the early morning with
their shoe strings untied and their
neckties in their pocket, inquiring
if there is " another stage going out
today." Being awakened from
their peaceful slumbers at four
o'clock in the morning in order to
make connections with the railway
gives them the privilege of enjoying
the pleasant breezes of the Kettle
river, and why they should object
is more than the Wayfarer can see.
Cascade is one of the few towns in
the province where travellers have
the pleasure of taking a drive before breakfast.
While strolling around the other
day in search of something to break
the monotony of everyday life, the
Wayfarer happened to meet a
gentleman whom he considers the
tallest man in the world. While
standing close by and wondering
how he ever grew so high up and
did not develop otherwise in proportion, a small boy chanced along
and with open mouth and wondering gaze inquired, "How's the
weather up there, old man ?" The
tall man appreciated the joke and
when he sauntered on down street
a few minutes after, a smile hovered round his mouth.

CONSTRUCTION NOTES.
Picked Up Along the Line of the New
Railway
The small contract of Jim Ding-
man, near Grand Forks, has been
���completed.
James McMartin has finished his
contract near the summit, and his
teams are now used in freighting.
Dr. Foster, who has charge of the
hospital at Cascade, made a trip to
Greenwood last week. The patients
in the Cascade hospital are all doing well.
The heavy blasts heard all day
close to Cascade come from the
work of Stewart & Brown, who
have the contract to the east and
south of the Gateway City.
The bridge to be constructed over
Kettle river at Cascade will be one
of the longest on the line, and will
require nearly or quite 2,000,000
feet of timber.
When McPherson Bros. & Stout's
saw-mill is moved from Gladstone,
it will be brought to a point near
Levally's, about three miles from
Cascade, where there is now a tie
camp.
Pat Welch was in town last
Wednesday. He has a large gang
preparing the approaches to the
300 foot tunnel on his contract, the
other Bide of Fisherman creek.
Work on the tunnel proper is expected to commence next week.
With at least 500 men working
in the neighborhood of Niagara,
Dr. Foster, the contractors' physician, reports no sickness among
them. The number at the Brooklyn hospital is diminishing, and
there are not many at the Cascade
hospital.
Arthur Murdock, the contractor,
whose camp is just beyond the end
of Christina lake, returned from
Nelson, and says that he heard
nothing authentic there in regard
to the contract having been let on
the long talked of Nelson & Bedlington road.
Contractor E. F. Burns, of Bums
& Jordan, is establishing a new
camp about five miles north of
Grand Forks, where his firm have
secured a third sub-contract of abaut
two miles. Winter quarters are
being put up for the accommodation of 100 men.
The railway contractors recently
placed an order for 17 car loads of
potatoes, to come from the Northwest Territories. As a consequence
there are now spuds galore in Cascade, there being already some 400,-
000 pounds of the tubers on hand���
part of the winter's stock.
Large numbers of laborers, endowed with that foolish and inexplicable instinct to go to the front,
have been coming over the line into
the Boundary country. The result
is that more than are needed have
done this, and this paper is informed that many are now taking
the back irack, to points where
there is still a demand for them
An average of twenty four-horse
teams unload merchandise every
day from Bossburg at the contractors' store-house in Cascade. The
company also has twenty fours constantly employed in distributing
goodB to the sub-contractors, as far
west as Greenwood and as far east
as Gladstone.
The reports sent out several days
ago of the letting of the contract for
the construction of the much talked
of Nelson & Bedlington road, have
yet to be confirmed.     Folliet &
Guthrie were said to have Becured
it, and also J. F. Stephens, a partner of Mann, Foley Bros. & Larson.
It is now reported from Bonner's
Ferry, Idaho, that Foley Bros. &
Halvorsen have secured the contract and will employ 4000 men in
pushing it to completion.
