QUIETLY BUT IMPORTANT
Development Work Being Done in Mines
About Cascade.
PONTIFEX, RUSSELL,WATERLOO CLAIMS
Huckleberry Mountain Gradually Yielding to
the Pressure of Development Work that
Discloses Its Hidden Treasures.
There is a good <ieal of development work going on around Cascade in a mineral way about which
but little is being said or written.
At the same time this quiet work is
development, of a nature that is
telling and is showing up our rich
mineral lodes in a most satisfactory
way���a way tbat will surely result
in due time, in making a fortune
for more than one pioneer.
Huckleberry mountain, just back
of Cascade, bids fair to be one of
the best caiwps along the Boundary
line. There are now two companies
working there on propositions that
mining men declare are most promising. The Pontifex Gold Mining
Co., a Spokane corporation, has
been working for months under J.
H. Inkster, and the force is now
nicely housed for the winter, as
stated heretofore in the Record, and
steadily Working a double shift on
the shaft in the gigantic ledge that
shows so plainly on tbe property.
Those who have seen the Pontifex
declare that it cannot fail to make
a great mine with exploitation.
This group is located within five
miles of Cascade, the winter's stock
of supplies has been packed in, a
whim installed, and work will continue indefinitely.
Somewhat nearer Cascade, and
about a mile from the Pontifex
group is the Russell group, located
by W. L. Russell. Mr. Russell had
great faith in these properties and
has organized a stock concern, called the Russell Gold Mining Co.,
with a capital of $1,500,000 to work
the properties. Hugh McGuire, of
Grand Forks, and others, are interested. Already 100,000 shares of
the treasury stock have been disposed of, and a force of men, under
Manager Lightfoot, have already
sunk a 30-foot shaft in the ledge,
which is 12 feet wide on the surface
and widens as it grows deeper.
The work so far has largely been
done on the Waterloo claim, which
has a splendid showing, there being
seven other claims in the group.
Last Monday a contract was
awarded to Mr. Lightfoot for sinking the shaft another 100 feet, and
he already has three shifts of men
at work. In addition to this the
company will continue work on
another portion of the property,
and will push general development
work.
The company has built winter
qua iters, in the shape of cabins,
etc., and supplies for several
months have been packed in to the
property. It is the intention to
prosecute steady development, and
prove that that old Huckleberry
has some of the best mines in the
northwest.
NEW CHURCH DEDICATED.
Services Were  Held  in   the  Presbyterian
Church Last Sunday.
Not only in a religious sense, but
in every other relation making for
tbe best interests of this community, last Sunday was a day that
will long be remembered and often
referred to in the future. The
event which marks the day as
of special importance, was the
opening and dedicatory service in
the new Presbyterian church in
Cascade. While the building is
not a large structure it is sufficiently capacious to accommodate the attendance for a number of years.
In bis dedicatory remarks, the
pastor, Rev. Jos. McCoy, said that
the generosity of the citizens who
had so nobly assisted in the erection of the building was evinced by
the fact that there was no debt on
the church except what had been
borrowed from the church extension
fund, amonting to only $400, with
four years, without interest, to pay
it in.
The size of the building is 24x36
feet, and has a seating capacity of
considerable over a hundred.
The attendance at the services
both morning and evening was
quite large, last Sunday, and the
pastor's remarks happily befitting
the occasion, were listened to with
deep interest by all present. He
seemed to be brimming over with
delight and gratefulness for the opportunity to stand on the rostrum
in a house dedicated to the service
of the Devine Master in Cascade
and preach the Gospel to an attentive and appreciative audience.
The completion and opening of the
building is not only a pleasing
fact to Mr. McCoy, but to a large
number of citizens and churchgoers who realize the urgent need
of and the good to be derived from
regular religious services in a
pleasant and attractive room under
circumstances of ease and comfort.
John R. Reavis, of the Grand
Forks Miner, was in Cascade this
week, securing data for a special
edition of his paper, which will appear about New Years.
Frightened by Women and Girls.
A dispatch from Cheyenne, Wyo.,
says: A week ago, 600 miners employed in the Diamondville Coal &
Coke C impany at Diamondville,
Wyo., struck for an increase in
wages. Their demands were refused
and a Binall force of non-union men
went to work. At an early hour
this morning a mob of 300 women
and girls, armed with guns, knives,
clubs and stones, marched to the
mines and compelled the operators
to flee.      '
Knocked Out By Bad Roads.
The stage roads between Cascade
and Bossburg have become so
frightfully bad as to be rendered
absolutely dangerous. In consequence the Bossburg-Columbia
stage line has been discontinued.
We are informed that it ceased
operations Wednesday. The line
between Cascade and Grand Forks
was discontinued tbe fore part of
last week. Whether the lines will
run stages again when the snow
improves the roads, we have not
learned.
Santa Claus In Cascade.
There have been some very posi-
itive indications this week that old
man Santa Claus will visit this
place some evening during the
Christmas tide. Mrs. McLeod and
Mrs. B. Wilcox have been appointed a reception committee to receive him and list the presents for
the children. His' arrival will be
duly announced in this paper.
LOCAL MELANQE.
Officer D. J. Darraugh has been
transferred from Cascade to Phoenix The government authorities
must be satisfied that the immense
territory between Phoenix and
Rossland is inhabited by a peaceably inclined people or it would not
leave so large   a  field unpoliced.
C. H. Thomas has been wrestling
with a very painful tooth this
week, and was in Grand Forks to
secure relief by seeking the aid of a
dentist. To have seen him after
his return one would be impressed
with the idea he was one of the Ma-
jauha Hill heroes.
The English store here, conducted by the B. C. Mercantile and
Mining Syndicate, limited, with
branches at McRae Landing, Gladstone and Eagle City; have been
recieving immense cargoes of seasonable goods the past two weeks.
Their branches are supplied from
Cascade. The parent house of this
firm is located in London, England.
BRITONS GAINING GROUND
Slowly But Surely The Boers Are Forced
To Retreat.
REINFORCEMENTS GOING TO THE FRONT
The Casualty List Assuming Serious Proportions, Already Totaling Over 4,000���Died
at Sea.
Perhaps the most depressing bit
of news that has come from South
Africa the paBt week, is the report
that the whole border district between Colesburg and Burghersdorp
had risen in insurrection, and declared for the Boers, who secured
in one locality alone over 2,000 recruits.
If the British troops in the
Transvaal are as much muddled in
their plans, their successes and defeats, and tbe whereabouts and <<e-
signs of the enemy, as the editors
and iheir readers are in Canada
and England, it is regretable.
As nearly as positive results can
be obtained, they are incorporated
in the war diary printed on another page of this paper.
Although our troops are successful in some degree, the advantages so far gained do not appear to
have been of a charater commensurate with cost in casualties and
treasure, or to bring the beginning
of the end in sight. However, the
British reinforcements swarming
in the seaports and hurrying to tbe
front will soon result in decisive
action that will bring relief to the
millions of anxious minds at home.
The announcement that the reinforcements, amounting to half of
the second army corps, are to be
sent to South Africa immediately
meets with approval. There i9 little doubt that a third division will
follow as booh as possible, and it is
very likely that the fourth will go
soon after, thus raising the British
force in the field to about 120,000.
The total casualty list on the British side is now amounting to serious figures, being stated at 4,180;
of whom 408 were killed, 1806
wounded and 1966 missing.
The Modder River battle, which
was fiercely fought and won by Gen.
Methuen has been going the rounds
of the press for a week, and is the
latest reported at this writing.
Private Deslauriers, of the Canadian contingent, who died on the
fourth day after the transport Sardinian sailed, was 30 years old and
belonged to the Princess Louise
Dragoons, Ottawa, was unmarried
and worked for Bate & Co. He
was popular there, was of good
physique and an athlete. THE   CASCADE   RECORD

CAVINO SYSTEM OF MININO.
As a further indication of the
enterprise and progress brought to
play by Capt. J. R. De Lamar in
his mining operations, we note especially the new system of mining
inaugurated at his Mercur mines,
says the Western  Miner.
We refer to the new "caving system" which has been adopted there
in the vast ore bodies, and so far
with marked success. This system
though long practiced in the iron
mines of Michigan and other middle states, is decidedly a novelty
in the mining of gold and silver
ore. The application of it to the
mines of the Mercur district represents a decided land mark in the
development and progress of western mining. Gradually but surely
western men are perfecting their
practices and processes in mining
and accomplishing vast economies,
not only in the treatment and saving of the precious metals, but also
in the extraction of the minerals
from mother earth.
This last step undoubtedly effects
an enormous saving in the cost of
mining the ores of the Golden Gate
mine a saving that is two-fold, first,
in the reduction of labor, and
second, in suppressing the vast
cost of mine timbering, together
with its inherent difficulties and
dangers.
When an output of 1,000 tons of
ore per day raised from the depths
varying from 200 to 800 feet can be
made with a mine payroll of 250
men, and practically without timber-men or timbers, it is evident
that some extremely cheap mining
work is being done.
While the ore cannot be called
hard or difficult to break down,
still air rock drills may be used in
ihe work to good advantage.
While the caving in system of
mining is by no means capable of
general application, it has a great
field of usefulness and its introduction into other Rocky mountain
mines will not be long delayed.
The dangers of stopes and workings supported by rolling timbers
are avoided. The vacancies left by
extracted ore are at once filled in,
whilst the displacement or disturbance of tho formation is more or
less under control and the danger
and extent of the necessary settling
readily ascertained and circumscribed.
The fact that the system has
proven such a success and so far
without any serious accident of any
kind certifies both to the excellence
of the system and to the ability
with which it has been carried
out.        	
Accident at Old Ironsides.
from the 200 to the 300-foot level,
with Engineer W. O. Sanford at the
lever. When it got away, the engineer became confused and the heavy
iron ore bucket dropped on the
head of Patrick Sullivan, who was
working at the shaft, where he had
a contract.
Sullivan was quicklv taken to
the Old Ironsides hotel, and Drs.
Foster and Boucher sent for. It
was found that the injured and insensible man had sustained serious
injuries about the head, but which
were not necessarily fatal.
A Miner Injured.
David Smith, a miner, met with
a terrible accident at the Friend
claim on Gold Hill Tuesday.
Smith was in the act of picking up
two sticks of giant powder that had
heen placed near the fire to thaw,
when an explosion occurred. Smith
was terribly wounded about the
face, groin and other parts of the
body, and clothing was torn in
shreds.
He managed to crawl to the shaft
and call his partner, Robt. Robinson. Dr. Arthur Burns was telephoned for and after treatment had
Smith removed to the hospital.���

The Grand Forks Miner says
that J. B. McArthur, of the Columbia Townsite Co., will leave shortly
for a winter's trip in the Holy
Land. Presumably Mr. McArthur
may locate a townsite in that
country which will not he in touch
with Grand Forks, nor coverted by
that grasping city. A townsite in
the Holy Lands, one would suppose, would be less liable to annoyance than one in juxtaposition to
the city at the forks, though it
might not "boom" so readily.
Not tbe Townsite Co's Fault this Time.

NOTE AND COMMENT.
At the elections in Manitoba
Thursday, the government was" defeated.   It was a   great   surprise.
The appointment of Mr. Beau-
soleil, M. P., to the postmastership
of Montreal, leaves seven vacancies
in the House of Commons. Five
are in Quebec, one in Ontario and
one in Manitoba. There are also
six vacancies in the Senate.
The Dominion Government is
about to appoint two special Commissioners of Commerce to visit the
leading European countries to take
whatever steps may be necessary
for the development of trade between those countries and the Dominion.
The fight in the U. S. congress,
which has overshadowed all other
matters since that body convened
last Monday in its 56th session, is
in relation to the seating or unseating of Representative Roberts, the
polygamist representative ��� elect
from Utah. It is probable that he
will not be allowed to sit in congress, not so much because he is a
polygamist as that he is a democrat, that being a greater sin in the
eyes of the republican politicians
than bigamy.
In a recent interview with Thos.
A. Edison, the great scientist says:
"Chemistry undoubtedly proves
the existence of a supreme intelligence. No one man can study
that science and see the wonderful
way in which certain elements
combine with the nicety of the most
delicate machine ever devised and
not come to the inevitable conclusion that there is a big engineer
who is running the universe. After
years of watching the processes of
nature I have no more doubt of the
existence of an intelligence that is
running things than I donl.t my
own existence."
An Tbcy Preachers, Too.
Upon receipt of a cordial invitation from Rev. Mr. Bradshaw to
join with the Methodist brethren in
the dedicatory services of their new

in the evening at 7:30. All are
heartily overcome.���Grand Forks

about 170 excursionints, passed up
the road Thursday and returned
to-day.
The booming of the blasts fired
by S. R. Quinlivan's gang at the
power-house excavation, might
make one think the Boer army had
transferred its field of operation to
this vicinity.
Republic has found itself short
of many supplies owing to the horrible condition of the wagon roads
between that place and Grand

railroad, or cause for berating the

The Garfield Republican says: A
family consisting of father, mother
and four small children arrived in
Garfield the first of the week from
Iowa. They left Iowa for Baker
City, Or., and on reaching Billings
found their tickets had either been
lost or stolen. The conductor on
his own responsibility, took them
to Helena, from which place they
walked to Missoula, a distane of
126 miles, having but one meal a
day, and the father carrying the
youngest child and valise. At
Missoula a brakeman looked the
other way while the family got in
to a box car, in which they were
taken to Spokane. Charity helped
them to Garfield. Here Jerome
Kidwell took them to his home and
kept them over night, and in the
morning took up a collection of $8
for them. They were started to
Colfax and advised to apply to the
county officials for help. They did
so, and were furnished with transportation to Baker City at the
county's expense.
Mr. J. C. Shook, who has shipped
300,000 feet of dry lumber into
Grand Forks and Greenwood, intends building a large frost-proof
warehouse there to furnish bunded
accommodation for the heavy trade
springing up hetween that place
and Republic. He is ready to begin construction just as soon as the
C. P. R. officiats decide upon the
location of the warehouse.

to 30,000, and that confronting Gen.

investment of Ladysmith up to
Nov. 25, a dispatch to tbe N. Y.
Herald states that 832 soldiers and I
civilians had been killed within
the city limits.
The great impending battle on
Tuegla river will involve the reletse
or fall of Ladysmith.   The battle
it is expected will be most stubbornly fought on both sides, for if
it is won by our forces, it will break
the backbone of tbe Boer plans,
and upset them generally.

A party of 39 Canadians remained at Capetown, an the men had
not passed medical inspection. The
Canadian contingent will act in
concert with the Black Watch and
Seaforth Highlanders.
The headlines in latest papers
over date of Pretoria, Dec. 2, in the
Spokesman-Review, read : "Council of war near Ladysmith: Gen.
Joiihert is ill and Schalkburger
commands; artillery is busy; heavy
cannonading heard on afternoon of
Dec. 2; all quiet at Kimberly; British prisoners are comfortably
heused at Waterfall, a few miles
from Pretoria. Boers are closing
in on Ladysmith and mounting big
guns.
A townsite is being laid out in
Deadwood camp.
R. Dalby Morkill, of Rossland,
who is largely interested in several
valuable mining properties in the
Boundary country, has purchased
a |th interest in the St. Mark, St.
Clair, St. Luke fraction and Santa
Rosa claims, in Big Sheep creek.
The Columbia correspondent" of
the Rossland Miner states that
Manager Donald A. Ross of the
Sailor Boy group in Camp McKinney, writes that the ledge has been
cut 10 feet sooner than expected,
and the showing of ore is very encouraging. There seems to be every
indication that tbe Sailor group
will become a very valuable property under the careful management
of Mr. Ross.

BOUNDARY HINES
���
Brief Bits Prom Many Camps.
One hundred feet more are to be
added to the tunnel in the Rawhide
mine.
A 20-drill compressor plant will
soon be installed in the Mother
Lode mine in Deadwood camp.
A company is being incorporated
to develp the Greyhound prospect
in Deadwood camp.
The distance frcm Eholt to the
B. C. claims has been reduced to
14 miles by the building of a good
wngon road.
In the 300-foot level of the Winnipeg mine a blast in the blind
ledge is reported to have shown up
40 feet of solid ore which assays $16.
A 2-foot ledge in the Vancouver,
in Wellington camp assays from
$40 to $50 per ton.
The big ledge exposed by the
railroad grade is being worked energetically by 20 men on the Oro
Denoro.
In Central camp two prospect
shafts will be sunk on the Norfolk.
From a four-foot vein in an open
cut in the Last Chance mine in
Summit ramp, assays reaching
$37.50 have been obtained.
A compressor plant of 40-drill
capacity will soon be placed in position to serve the Old Ironsides
and Knob Hill mines.
The Bengal, Badger and Bristol
prospects in Deadwood camp, are
to be developed immediately, and
two shifts will be put to work.
Twelve men are employed on the
Enterprise and Anchor, the shaft
already being down 70 feet. It has
a horse whim.
At the 130-foot level in the Golden Eagle samples assay 22 cents in
copper and $7 in gold. The ledge
was recently cut.
Old Ironsides, Knob Hill and
Dominion companies will soon be
equipped with electric plants for
fighting and other purposes.
A 16-foot ledge ou the surface is
found on the Silver Knot claim at
Fisherman creek. A crosscut tunnel is being driven, and good copper assays have been obtained.
Ore chutes, reported to be 11 in
number, have been uncovered in
the Iron Top group, in Deadwood
camp.
Four-hundred-ton bins have been
built at the B. C, and the company
expects soon to be shipping ore in
largp quantities.
The reservatiou properties, the
Drummers and the Belcher mines,
the former located near Curlew,
about midway between Grand
Forks and Republic, on the Washington side, the latter being only
about twelve miles this side of Republic, at the head of Lambert
reek, are reported to have yielded
up good shipping ore in sufficient
quantity and quality to cause the
shouting headline "Big Strike,"
etc. to appear in the papers.
There are quite a number of companies preparing and getting into
shape in order to develop their
properties, and Burnt Basin is likely to be a hive of industry before
ihe coming summer is over. Judging by the surfacecroppings, there
is very liable to be more than one
Mother Lode with stamp batteries
pounding on McRae creek before
another year is over.
Assay returns on quartz from the
Alhambra mine, noar Gladstone,
property of G. T. Curtis and Geo.
Cameron, from an average on seven
assays, show $43.54 in all values.
Don't forget the Record Job Department when needing fine stationery.
What Is Done With the Road Money ?
A tax of $2.00 is being imposed on
every male of the full age of 21
years. This is supposed to be a
road and school tax. The school
part is all right, but we would like
to be shown where very much of it
is put into the roads. Our highways are a disgrace to a civilized
community. Between Midway and
Christina lake a distance of over
50 miles, the munificent sum of
$950 was appropriated for roads
between these two points. In that
distance there must be at least three
or four thousand people, the majority of whom live outside of incorporated towns who pay $3.00 Where
does all this money go to ? For
Vancouver Island improvements or
to swell the already large fee system
of our government ?���Columbia Review.
He Loved Money More Than Life.
The body of a man was recently
found sitting upright in a chair in
his hut of a home near Corvallis,
in the Wilamette valley, Oregon,
with $4,500 in money and certificates of deposite in his lap. He
had died for want of the necessaries of life. 8
