 THE CASCADE RECORD
Published In the Interests of the Boundary and Christina Lake  Mining Districts
Vol. I.
CASCADE, B. C, JULY 22, 1899.
No. 37.
C P. R. OFFICIALS HERE
Whyte, Marpole, Hamilton and Others
in the Party.
ARE NOW TAKING IN THE BOUNDARY
Traveled Over the New Uoe to Rail-Head, and
Spent Last Night in Cascade.���do Out
by Way of Penticton.
Last night a 1.umber of prominent C. P. R. officials arrived in
Cascade on a general tour of inspection, which will extend as far
overland as Penticton, and then to
the coast. In the party were William Whyte, general manager of
all lines weBt of Ft. William; Robert Marpole, superintendent of the
Pacific division; L. A. Hamilton,
of Winnipeg, land commissioner;
W. F. Tye? chief engineer of the
Columbia & Western, and J. G.
Sullivan, assistant chief engineer.
They were accompanied hy C. C.
Chipman, commissioner and chief
executive officer of the Hudson's
Bay C<\ in Canada.
The party's trip into the Boundary was over the new railway as
far as English Point, where they
stopped long enough to see the
tracklaying machine at work, when
they scrambled down the steep hillside and boarded the steamer
Myrtle B. which had been waiting
for them for several hours, and then
came on to Cascade. They remained here over night, went down and
inspected the 1,600-foot bridge,
looked at the depot grounds, took
in the falls, expressed great admir
ation for the beautiful townsite of
Cascade, and this morning, with
the company's own teams started
westward, intending to reach Midway tonight, touching briefly at
Grand Forks, Columbia and Greenwood.
To a Record representative, all
of the gentlemen stated that the
visit was of no special import, except that they wished to inspect
the new railway work. But, a��
they go to Penticton, it iB believed,
that the extension of the line from
Midway to that point will he uppermost in their minds. Mr
Whyte and Mr. Marpole, veteran
railroad men, were more than
pleased at the condition of the
railway as far as completed, and
were not slow to express themselves
to that effect. With the exception
of Mr. Hamilton and the engineers,
it was the first visit of the gentlemen to this place.
Mr. Chipman said that he was
looking over this new country and
fully expected his company to be
found in this field in due course of
time. Mr. Hamilton was here last
summer, and is financially interested in Cascade. Although a constant reader of the Record, he was
surprised to note the growth of the
place. He will return here in a
"short time.
Another prominent party, con
sisting of Senator Geo. A. Cox,
president of the Canadian Bank of
Commerce; A. Cox, his brother;
Robert Jaffray, president of the
Globe Publishing Co., Toronto;
Major H, H. Pellatt, financial
man, of Toronto, will be here in a
few days, coming in the other way,
from Penticton.
Recuperating In Spokane.
Alex. McArthur, of the firm of
Porter Bros. & McArthur, bridge
contractors, who was hurt some
days ago at the end of the track,
came down from near Gladstone
last Sunday, and proceeded to Spokane, where his family resides, to
recuperate. The injuries are not
as serious as at first reported, and
he hopes to be back at his post in
a few days.
Ira Black and Mrs. Blsck made
a trip to Greenwood this week.
The new custom house, with its
fresh coat of paint and Irish trimmings, looks as pretty as a young
woman in an Ea��ter nonnet.
Oscar Stenstrom and Peter Nelson have returned from atrip west,
as far as Penticton and Hope.
They traveled by stage, steamer,
rail and horseback.
THEY ARE A FAST CREW
Built a Bridge and Engine Crossed It
in a Few Hours.
WERE AT BAKER CREEK THIS A. H.
Record Man Witnessed Some Quick Work By
the Bridge and Track Gangs at English
Point.
Yesterday a Record representative took a trip to English Point,
to see exactly how far the track
had been laid. Going up the several hundred feet almost perpendicularly to the grade, he witnessed
a specimen of the speed being used
in bridge building and track laying. The rails had been laid to
the verge of a bridge in sight of the
Lake View hotel, at English Point.
The bridge must be 135 feet long
and 35 feet high at the highest
point. Thursday night not a
stick of timber was on the ground,
and it all had to come from the
framing yards at the summit, perhaps 20 miles away. By noon yesterday, the bridge was on end, the
stringers in place and all ready
for the ties and rails. At 4 p. m.
the bridge was crossed by the engine and was pushing the track-
laying machine to the Baker creek
bridge, a quarter of a mile below.
When the difficulties are appreciated, the necessity of hauling
timber, ties and rails from far up
the road, and some from West
Robson, ��the celerity with which
the work is being done may he appreciated, even by the layman.
Among the Miners
The publisher of the Record visited the Victoria group this week,
located on Christina lake, about
which properly so much favorable
comment has been heard this
spring and summer. He found D.
C. Beach, one of the owners, on
hand, and of course as enthusiastic
as ever over the outlook. The
ledge on the Victoria is indeed remarkable. It has been uncovered
for a couple of hundred feet in
length and has been found to be
30 feet wide at least. Assays have
never been less than $7.50, and run
up to $40. The ore is copper-gold
and is identical with that found in
the best Rossland mines. About a
hundred feet below tbe o'd work,
a tunnel has been started.
This is the property that Frank
E. Starkey. of Spokane, lately
bought a controlling interest in.
Mr. Starkey arrived in Cascade
last night and proceeded to the
mine this morning. A stock company is in process of formation,
and a large amount of stock has
already been spoken for. Every
miner and prospector in the country firmly believes that the Victoria will prove to be a great mine.
J. W. Spaulding, manager of the
work on the Cannonball group, another Christina lake bonanza, was
in town this week. He has a double shift at work there, and has
already sunk a shaft on the lead
over 20 feet. ,This is the property
lately taken up by R. Dalby Morkill, Jr., of Rossland, secretary of
the British American Corporation.
The claims have been surveyed
and a crown grant is being rpplied
for.
Some splendid ore has been
brought, to town from the- Iron
Mountain claim, near Engligh
Point. 1). 0. Beach, the owner,
says he has a mountain of good
ore, and that his assessment wirk,
now going on, is proving as favorable as expected.
Wm. Forrest and A. Cameron
c��me down from Gladstone and
the John Bull group yesterday.
The contract has been completed,
and another one for 100 feet of tunnel to the Meikleson Bros, has
heen let. The tunnel is now in 70
feet, and in a short time it iB expected that the ledge will he reach
ed.
Ten men are now working on the
Mystery in the Burnt Basin, most
of them in the No. 2 tunnel, which
is improving constantly.
On the Mother Lode, in the
Burnt Basin, seven men are employed in the shaft The ore encountered continues to be of an exceedingly rich character. Mike
Shick stated that on the Base Ore,
one of the Mother Lode group, the
1,000 feet of ledge already stripped
can be made to furnish thousands
of tons of good shipping ore.
Messrs. Cameron and Montgomery are working on the Canyon Creek claim, close  to  Glad
stone, and have pounded gold from
all across the ledge. It is said,
however, like most of the claims
thereabouts, that it is turning to
ba*e ore.
H. F. Libby, who has been prospecting the Pride of Cascade claim,
on Granville mountain, near Gladstone, reports that he has discovered the Cascade ledge, which extends through it. On the Pride of
Cascade an open cut has shown up
a five-foot ledge for a distance of
25 feet, being a fine quartz, carrying gold and silver.
The New Bonanza, on Granville
mountain, is being worked by
Stephen Brailo, and the Granville
by E. W. Liljegram.

Kettle River Scared Them.
The little party of three from
Cascade, consisting of A. M. Button, Will Button and Ira Isham,
who started down Kettle river last
week in a boat, intending to go to
its mouth, gave it up at Rock Cut,
some 10 miles below Cascade.
They were satisfied by that time of
the dangerous nature of their un
dertaking, and boarded a freighter
at that point. They then concluded that dry land navigation
would get them to their destination, Chewelah, safer and quicker,
which it did.

CHOSE DELEGATES TO ROSSLAND.
Caicade Will be Represented at the Board
of Trade Meeting.
Thursday evening the Cascade
Taxpayers' Association met for the
purpose of selecting delegates to
attend the gathering of representatives of boards of trade of Kootenay and Yale, to be held in Rossland, Thursday, August 3rd. The
delegates chosen were S. Mayall
and V. Monnier, with Q. K. Stocker and W. B. Willcox, as alternates.
A discussion was had as to the
subjects that should be brought up
in which this section was interested, and a committee was finally
appointed to draft suitable resolutions along this line.
Much interest is being taken in
the gathering, and the sessions will
doubtless be productive of great
good to the district in general.
Special rates have been granted on
the railways.
Another 1500-Foot Side-Track.
It has become evident to the
C. P. R. officials that one 1500-foot
sidetrack will not be sufficient to
handle the traffic at Cascade when
the new branch of the Columbia &
Western is built this far. Accordingly, orders were issued to put in
another of equal length
J. A. Sandgren, who did several
miles of railway grading in this
vicinity, will have charge of this
work, and has already moved his
outfit from Grand Forks and established camp here. As the point
where the new sidetrack is to go in
is considerable of a cut, close to
the depot site, the contractor will
probably require the services of 85
or 40 men for seven or eight weeks.
He will begin work at once.

WILL JOIN ISSUES.
The idea of holding a joint meeting of representatives of the lion ids
of trade from cities and towns in
Kootenay and Yale was a happy
one, and should be productive of
good to southern British Columbia.
The meeting will take place in
Rossland, August 3rd, and delegates have been elected from  the
various boards of trade interested.
Already a  number of   bubjeota
for discussion have been  proposed,
among them the following:
More liberal appropriations for
wagon roads and trails.
Encouragement of the silver-
lead industry by the imposition of
increased duties upon lead products imported into Canada.
Direct representation in the Federal parliament of the Boundary
and Kootenay countries.
Additional educational facilities
generally.
Necessity of a complete set of
government officers for the Boundary district, and of having regular sittings of the Supreme court
here.
Better postal facilities.
The Greenwood board objects to
discussion of the eight-hour law,
but Nelson delegates are authorized, if they Bee fit, to bring the
subject up. The Rossland board
wants a land registery office for the
Kootenays and Southern Yale
"established at a central point in
West Kootenay district." This
latter nuggestion will most certainly not meet with the approval of
the Boundary delegates.
This list comprises subject matter enough to occupy the time of a
long session. It is believed that
on some of these points the delegates will agree and will send such
a joint memorial as will carry
weight when received by Federal
and provincial officials. This part
of the Dominion is of too much
importance to be longer slighted
as it has been in the past, both at
Victoria and Ottawa.
A coalition government is talked
of as a successor of the present
ministry. A caucus of government
supporters is to be held next Wednesday to find out what is what.
And in the meantime Fighting Joe
has gone south to recuperate and
prepare for the fray. He'll probably bring back a boomshell with
him, and if it kills him politically,
others will be in the bouillon also.
NOTE AND COMMENT.
Old Sol has been making up for
lost time for the last few days.
At the rate at which the present
government is repairing roads and
trails in this section, the millennium will have arrived, before the
work is completed.
One more has been added to the
constantly increasing list of American trusts. It is called the United
American Glue Co., and starts with
the modest capital of $35,000,000.
It is expected that the promoters
will make it stick.
are paying regularly. Not eo
much is heard of the Slocan dividends since the eight-hour law
went into effect.
STARTED THE CHURCH BUILDING.
The Nelson Miner says the Slo
can has gone to the dogs since the
eight-hour law took effect. But
the Tribune, of the same live u wn,
asserts that 5,000 men are now
employed in the mines utid smellers of Kootenay and Yale districts
���more than ever before.
A small debts court was asked
for in Coscade months ago, and
wa�� promised, but the government
is probably too busy with troubles
of its own to think of little things
like that. However, there's another appeal to the people coming
fast.
If Hewitt Bostock, our member
in the Dominion parliament,
wishes to secure the friendship of
the people in-these parts, heie is a
pointer. Let him gu to' the postmaster general and insist that that
official pay some little attention to
the numerous complaints of indescribably poor mail service in Yale
and Kootenay. Seemingly, no
other way can relief be had.       * .
Even the calamity howlers,
should be pleated at the late flota-
tion of a loan of the province of
British Columbia in London for
$1,700,000, at a fraction over 96.
This is more than one tercent
higher than the best price obtained
for any previous loan. The credit
of this province is gilt-edited in
the world's greatest money markets.
The Royal ftieleorological Society, of Loudon, is trying to devise
a more accurate system of measuring the velocity of wind. It will
be a difficult job to perfect an anemometer that could measure the
wind that comes from some newspaper offices. But possibly they
go on the principle that "he who
tooteth not his own horn, the same
shall not be tooted."
Dividends in Pacific Northwest
mining stocks are being declared
with pleasing frequency nowadays. The War Eagle is doing
business at the old stand along
these lines, and the Republic,
Deer Trail and Cariboo are also
heard from regularly. The LeRoi
is again making big shipments,
and one or two Nelson properties
Cascade's New Structure is Now Iu Course
of Construction.
Litbt Tuesday work was begun
upon the foundations of the new
Presbyterian church' building in
Cascade, and the structure is now
framed. When completed the
estimated cost of the building is
$850, of which amount a loan of
$400 is to be obtained from the
Church and Manse Building Fund.
The balance, of which considerable
has already been raised through
the efforts of the pastor, Rev. J.
McCoy, will be paid by those interested in seeing a permanent
church building erected in Cascade.
Wednesday evening a meeting of

THE CASCADE RECORD
IW������i****��ti*
BY THE WAYSIDE
Although $15,000 was appropriated this year by the government
for roads and trails in Rossland
riding, scarcely any of it has yet
been expended. Gold Commis
sioner Kirkup and Jos. M. Martin.
M. P. P., are neither of them
pleased at the delays of the officials
at Victoria in this matter, as both
realize that, to get any benefit this
season from the proposed improvements, work must be started at
once. The reason given for delay
is that the government engineer,
Mr. Gamble, must pass upon the
proposed work to be done, and he
has not yet got around to this riding. In the road and trail list,
$300 is t<> be spent on the wagon
road between Cascade and English
Point. A trail three or four miles
up Baker creek, giving ingress to
scores of good claims, is also badly
needed.
The provincial secretary kindly
suggested that Mr. Kirkup make a
trip over the proposed roads and
trails in this part of the riding, but
this is not practicable for him, and
he kindly refers it to Mr. Lambley,
gold commissioner, at Fairview.
So there we are, just where we
started. If ever any section of the
province was an orphan, this Boundary district tills the bill to the
letter. The Victoria officials
should get their heads together;
perhaps they could make a wooden
pavement then.
Remarkable as it may seem, the
Columbia Stage Co. has been delivering the mail with unusual
regularity this week. This is certainly an unusual thing and the
Record takes pleasure in calling
the attention of its constantly
widening circle of readers to the
fact.
Later (Saturday)���We take it
all back. An important mail sack
was not delivered last night.
Extreme heat has prevailed of
late, ordinary thermometers climbing upon the roof and their owners
to the cellar for relief. It is a
source of some satisfaction, however, to know that this is the coolest town in the Boundary country,
if travelers are to be believed. In
this connection the following,
which occurred in a large city, will
be appreciated,:
A pasHensier who had observed to
the Htreet-nir conductor that it was
 hot, suddenly turned   and
discovered a lady within hearing.
"I beg your pardon, madam," he
said contritely. ''Oh, you needn't,
sir," responded madam, fanning
herself vigorously; "it is very much
warmer than that."
Newspapers, like men and other
things, come and go, and of course
changes take place. Last week
the Midway Advance was sold by
W. H Norris to John Withall, of
Montreal, who has extensive holdings in Midway. The Greenwood
Miner has also changed hands,
having been purchased hy R. E
Gosnell, late provincial librarian,
Mr. Gosnell iB a newspaper man of
wide experience, and it goes without saying that he will make the
Miner bright, newsy and readable.
Greenwood is to be congratulated
on haying two such excellent papers as the Miner and Times.

PASSING THRONG   ��

4^��Mm3��^l^lt^<t3��M��l3����<1��niWm<t
Prof. Henry Montgomery, of
Trinity University, Toronto, wan
in Cascade Tuesday, on his way to
Camp McKinney. He was here
three or four months ago, and
promised to return and look at
some Christina lake properties,
which    attracted    his    attention.
This he says he expects to do on
his way out. Prof. Montgomery is
president of the Minnehaha Gold
Mining Co. Ltd., which owns one
pf the best McKinney properties.
The management is about to install a 10-stamp mill, and Mr.
Montgomery's visit is for the purpose of being present at that time.
Prof. Montgomery stands high
in the geological and mineral
world, and has held some of the
best positions in American as well
as Canadian institutes. He is conservative to a degree, and yet
knows a good thing when he sees
it. The work on the Minnehaha,
managed by Major Megaw, has
been carried on under his advice,
and the stockholders are more than
satisfied with the outlook. He is
also interested in the Sailor in the
same camp. It is well for a mining section to have such men interested in it.
W. J. Walker, general organizer
for Western Labor Union, with
headquarters at Butte, was in Cascade Thursday. He had been visiting Republic, where the Miners'
Union has 350 members, and also
took preliminary steps to organize
a union at Greenwood. Mr. Walker has been in this business now
for nearly ten years, but says he
is getting tired of it, and will soon
let others carry on his work. He
is bitterly opposed to the Spokesman-Review, claiming it to be
owned by the Rockefeller interests,
and that it positively refused to
publish the laborer's side of the
Coeur d'Alene mining troubles.
Big Bridge All on End.
The long railway bridge just east
of town is now all on end, and is
waiting for the: track-layers. This
week the false work of the two 150-
foot spans was completed by the
18 men at work under Foreman
Archie Smith. Next week the
force will tackle the 120-foot span
over the deep canyon, just west of
town, below the Cascade Water

THE  CASCADE  RECORD
July 28,  1899
TRACK IS AT CHRISTINA
Steel Gang Now in Sight of Our Pretty
Lake.
BUT TWEE MORE BRIDGES TO BUILD
Is Sure to Be In Cascade the Pint Week In
August���Another Long Side Track lor
tbe Caicade Yards.
Within a few days after the publication of this issue of the Record,
a resident of Cascade, from the hill
back of town, with a field glass,
will be able to see the tracklaying
gang gradually working down the
long Christina lake grade. At
least, that is what Supt. Jack Stewart says, and if any man knows
better the exact condition of the
work, he is yet to be discovered.
Although somewhat under the
weather, Mr. Stewart made a trip
to the end of the track this week,
to look over the work of the steel
gang. They had reached a point
close to where the grade bends
around the hill at English Point,
and by this time should be within
sight from the lake.
From where the tracklayers are
now there are but three bridges
yet untouched by the bridge build
ers. Two of these are but small
affairs, but the other will require
three or four days to construct
after the track reaches it. Of
course, the top must must be put
on the Baker and Sutherland creek
bridges, as well as on that over
Kettle river, just east of town.
The false work for the two 150
foot-spanB for this latter 1,600-foot
structure has been going up rapidly for the last two weeks, and will
be ready in good time for the track-
laying engine.
Five Qangi at Work.
Five separate gangs of men are
now at work, in connection with
the track-laying. The first of
these, about 75 in number, is working ahead of the track, between
Gladstone and Cascade, and is
clearing away the small slides or
filling the cave-ins that may have
occurred since the grading was completed last winter. Then comes
the bridge carpenters, just ahead
of the steel. This force varies in
number, according to the size of
the bridge, but the men are working in double shifts, from daylight
till dark, and no grass grows under
their feet.
Close upon the bridge men���
right at their heels, in fact���is the
long looked-for steel gang, comprising some 60 hands. With the assistance of the track-laying machine they handle and put down both
ties and rails, and are a most lively set of workers.   Quickly follow
ing this force is the first surfacing
gang, including something like 120
men, all told. A few miles behind
them come another surfacing force
of 90 or 100 men, whose business
it is to put on the finishing
touches.
Mr. Stewart says that, for a new
railway, the road, as far as completed, is in first class condition;
and F. W. Peters, the Nelson
freight agent of the C. P. R., who
went over it last week,corroborates
it. Inspector Murray, of the C. P.
R., also examined it last week, and
bore the same pleasing testimony
as to the thoroughness of the work
thus far done by the contractors.
Cascade's New Depot.
The contractors have orders to
put in an additional���making two
���1,500-foot sidetrack in the Cascade yards, in order to handle the
big traffic expected at this point.
It has been staked out, and the
grading will be under way next
week.
The plans and specifications of
the Cascade depot have been returned from Montreal to Chief En-
gineen Tye, and a contract has
been let for the construction, on
which it is expected work will
shortly be started. The plans call
for the usual conveniences needed
in such a depot, and it will be
large enough for the immediate requirements of the traffic.
At present, Mann, Foley Bros.
& Larson^have five locomotives in
use on the road, and in a few days
will put on another. One of these
iB a powerful machine with eight
drivers, and is used for taking cars
over the four per cent grade of the
switchback, with its 12 legs. It
easily handler five loaded cars at
once. Since the tracklaying began, the road is so thoroughly constructed, that little or none of the
trouble usually experienced on new
railways, has been encountered.
Mr. Stewart now estimates that
that the track will reach Cascade
on or before August 4th.

THE CASCADE RECORD
WERE THREE OF A KIND
And the Trio Had Interesting Experiences With Bruin.
TOLD BY A VERACIOUS CHRONICLER
Only One Nlmrod Got His Bear, and He Was
Sorry He Had Been Successful���Pat
Burns Unknowingly Contributed.
Now in this city .there dwell
many mighty hunters, and Nim-
rud A. went out into the mountain,
yclept Huckleberry and there he-
held a great beaut, and it waxed
exceedingly wroth and did utter
many sounds which do not hear
repeating; and A. marveled greatly thereat, and, shouldering his
gun, did pull the trigger thereof,
and he did it yet again. Time
being of object he repeated the
dose, whereat the noisome beast
stood not upon the order of his
going, but now straightway went
at once. Whereat the hunter girt
up his loins, likewise his lower jaw,
and delivered himself of many
strange oaths and did moreover
apostrophise the parentage of both
bear and gun right soundly.
Yet once again went he up into
that mountain, and his olfactory
organ did lead him to a spot
whereon lay a great beast, with
a carcus like unto that of a prize
ox, and swelled abominably, and
which, having been dead many
days, did stink right vigorously,
yea like unto a mephitic cess-non!
was its stench, and it did have
weevils and maggois and blowflies
and creeping things innumerable
within and without.
And straightway did the hunter apologise to his gun and take it
all back, and the place thereof
knew him no more, and of the bear
all he did get was the smell thereof.
And Nimrod B. also went out into the hills and whilst yet a great
way off did he espy a bear, on a
cliff side, and forthwith drew a
bead on him and the bear did seem
to toboggan to destruction. Whereat the hunter smole and fell
straightway to feeding on sardine
sandwiches, saying unto himself,
''Lo! here can I wait, for if he
moveth not he is dead, likewise if
he moveth he soon will be," or
words to tlia't effect. Wherein the
hunter fooled himself greatly for
the bear was a beast of much'cunning, and did steal noiselessly
away leaving not even a smell for
the hunter. And on the morrow
did he return with two borrowed
dogs, and straightway did they
show him which way the great
black beast had made tracks.
Whereat he likewise swore vigorously.
And then it came on to rain,
and it rained like unto a second
deluge, yea most grievously did it
rain until it had soaked that hunter even unto his marrrow bones,
and he shivered piteously Rnd likewise he gat what, he had sought
not���a mighty bud cold.
So also did his borrowed pups,
which came suddenly upon a fretful porcupine, and straightway,
without thought, waded they into
him, and he was a stranger and
took them in and did fiil their
mouths and chests and  paws and
all eise besides wiih quills, yea
hundreds of quills did he till them
with; and one of the dogs being
erstwile black did come out >f the
fray with a snow while heard composed of ninety aud nine stiff white
bristles iu either lip, whereat he
'owled 'orribly and yet again did
he howl more horribly when he
did have those whiskers drawn���
all same dentists ''teeth extraction
by painless process."
And Nimrod C. also went out
bunting on the hills and he likewise did find a bear and fired
thereat and it was almost night
time and he was sore afraid to get
close so returned he home, and
next day early did he Beek his
prey, but found him not. Yea,
all he found was his loss of great
gouts of blood. Nay, not quite so,
for it came to pass on his way
back that he did find an illustration of ye saying that "God tempers the wind to the shorn hunter."
For it so happened that a king iu
those parts, whose name was Pat
Bums, had sent a messenger into a
far land to levy a tribute of sheep
and had done so, one hundred and
eighty and seven had been levied,
and returning by way of Bossburg,
eighty-one of these sheep did engage in a 4th of July celebration,
and did partake of an intoxicating
weed and d.id straightway die, and
of the hundred and six that yet
remained, one was wise in his generation and liking not the pen, or
the prospect, did flee into the
mountains. Now Nimrod C. having promised the sojourners in his
tent much meat, did chance upon
this sheep and straightway fell to
capering, for now saw he, how he
and his house had been preserved
from starvation���yea, also at a
