CASCADE, B. C, AUGUST 25, 1900.
No. 42.
Gradually the Guilty Ones in Ooebel Murder Case Are Coming to Justice.
Besides "Imperialism" the Republican party of the United States
must also answer to the charge of
"Despotism" and "Anarchy."
Down in (lie stale of Kentucky a
state election was held a few
months hack. The Democratic
candidate for governor was elected,
hut hy usurpation the Republican
candidate was seated and the Democratic candidate was assassinated.
By persistent efforts the legal authorities of Kentucky have ferreted
out the criminals and are doing
their best to bring them to justice.
A 11 umber are under arrest accused
of participating in the crime. An
ex-secretary of state, Caleb Powers,
has been tried for complicity, convicted and sentenced to prison for
One Yotitsey, who is  accused  of
firing the fatal shot is under arrest,
but too ill to stand trial yet.
Taylor the Republican candidate
who caused all the trouble by insisting on his election and an attempt to seize the reins of the state
government, has fled to a Republican slate, where be is safe for the
time being, because the governor of
that state, Indiana, refuses to honor
the Kentucky requesition.
Buy Interests of Fisher  and Blue In Yale-
Columbia Lumber Co.
A big lumber deal was consummated in the city last week when
Messrs. Bine and Fisher sold out
their interests in the Yale Columbia
Lumber Co , to P. Genelle & Co.
About a year ago the sawmills of
Blue & Fisher and Genelle & Co.,
were acquired by the Yale-Columbia company and were run since
then by that company. By the
new irrangement Genelle & Co.
ate the sole owners, hut the business will be carried on under the
name of the Yale-Columbia Lumber company. The company own
nearly all the mills and yards in
the Kootenay and Boundary
districts. Blue and Fisher, who
are the pioneer lumber men of
Greenwood, have not yet decided
what they will do, but it is probable
(hat they will begin business for
themselves.���Greenwood Times.
The factory and general supply
depot of tho Yale-Columbia Lumber company are now located in
Cascade. _	
Mr. Robert Pribilsky, proprietor
of the City Barber Shop in Grand
Forks, announces that hereafter the
prices at his shop shall be as follows: shaving, 15c, haircutting, 35c
and bath 25.
Mr. Paul Rochussen left for a
visit to the Sound cities Tuesday.
He will be absent a week or ten
Richard Darrow and John Staples, who have been doing assessment work in the Basin tbe past
six weeks, were in town this week.
Mr. William Walling, wife and
son have returned to their former
home in the east, having resided
in Cascade about eighteen  months.
A green goods���apples and watermelons���peddler was in town
this week from yankeedom, offering
melons at $1,00 a piece and apples
for $2.00 a box.
At the third attempt here Wednesday, the case having been twice
previously postponed, A. H. Thompson, accused of illegally appropriating a saddle belonging to John
Earle, was acquitted.
"Cullud pussens"do not thrive in
this section, where "watermellions"
are $1.00 a piece and 'possums
do not venture. This suggests the
idea that the blacks might be expelled from the southern states by
the extermination of the opossum
and prohibition of the cultivation
of watermelons.
The Liquor License board for
this official district, made a t"ur
of its territory tbe past week, in order to readjust the traffic to the requirements of the new law. By the
commissioners forming themselves
into a poriable legal body, they
could hold meetings and regulate
matters when and where it was
found needful to do so. It was an
expeditious method. Officer D. J.
Darrough has been re-instated as
Chief License Inspector for this district, which includes the whole of
this riding outside of incorporated
Mr. Stanley Mayall has been engaged a part of the present week
writing up the mining interests of
Burnt Basin for a publication to
be issued in September, by The
Clarion Publishing company of
Vancouver, entitled: "The Coming
Land���British Columbia in 1900."
The prospectus says the work "will
describe in detail every district,
city, camp and industry in British
Columbia, in an interesting and
comprehensive manner. The neces
sary information is now being
gathered by expert writers in every
part of the province."
We are pleased to be able to
state iu this issue that work was
begun in earnest Monday last, on
the extensive sawmill enterprise
here. The site for the new mill
and yards having been previously prepared, a force of men
was put to work moving the machinery of the old plant to the new
location, where it will be added to
till thd capacity is commensurate
with whatever may be the current
demand for the products of the
mill. It is expected that when this
undertaking has attained its designed proportions, it will give
steady employment to the heads
of fifteen or twenty families, as it
is intended, as we understand it,
that this will be the general supply
depot for the Kootenays and the
Boundary. Mr. A. M. Button, the
local superintendent, expects to
have the machinery in place on the
new site for operation the first of
next week, when work will be begun on a large order for the Cascade Waterpower company.
Thursday night Mr. and Mrs. G.
K. Stocker, assisted by Miss Frye,
of Spokane, who is a guest at
Laurel Ridge, gave an invitation
party, and, as is usual at that
beautiful home, it was a most pleasing affair to all present.
Several days previous neat pen
invitations were sent out, and the
gathering was large, and animated
by an "esprit du corps" and good
will that was truly enjoyable.
Among the many amusing and entertaining pastiive6 was a game entitled "Pillow-dex," being new to
this community, From start to
finish it was characterized with
vivacity and keen zest. The test
of the "Peanut Grasp" also proved
an amusement of much interest as
did the game entitled "Camp". At
about 11.30 delicious refreshments
were served.
During the entire evening there
was no lack of interest nor was
there any "waiting between acts,"
the universal verdict being that the
Stockers are delightful entertainers
whose guests never have an opportunity to complain of lack of attention or amusement.
Nice little  prizes  were awarded
for the largest number of peanuts
in three handfulls lifted from a
bowl to a tray. Mr. Tebo secured
the gentleman's prize for the best
"peanut grip," having lifted 134.
Miss Cameron received the lady's
prize, her number being 110.
Among those present were: Mr.
and Mrs. G. K. Stocker, Miss Frye,
Mr. and Mrs. J. H. McDonald, Mr.
and Mrs. H. S. Turner, Mrs. Mac-
Ray and daughter Jennie, Mrs. M.
M. Kern, of Spokane, Mrs. McFetridge, Mrs. Wolverton, Miss Kate
Cameron, Mrs. Rochussen, Mr. J.
Simpson, Mr. W. C. Simmons, Mr.
R. G. Ritchie, Mr. Angus Cameron,
Mr. F. E. Tebo, Rev. K. W. Barton,
Mr. M. A. Turner, Mr. Carden. At
a late hour the party .dispersed
feeling they had spent a pleasant
evening together.
Further Delay Would Have Been  Fatal to
Besieged Legations.
Under date of August 21, a Pekin
dispatch says:
The American and Russian Bags
were planted on the east wall of
Pekin at 11 o'clock this morning.
The Indian troops entered the British legations at one ajid the Americans at three. There was a joyful
reception from the wall.
The emaciated tenants could
have lasted but little longer. They
had only three day's rations. -The
Chinese had been attacking furiously for two days. Four thousand
shells fell in the legation during
the siege. Sixty-five were killed
and 160 wounded. The Japanese
began the battle before daylight,
and they are still fighting about
the north wall, where part of the
Chinese are defending the Imperial
city. The Japanese casualties
have not yet been ascertained. The
Russians have five killed and 12
wounded. The Americans and
British had a few wounded.
The plan was to make a general
attack tomorrow, and the troops
were arriving at camp five miles
east last night. They were completely exhausted, and slept in the
corn fields in the rain.
The generals, however, alarmed
at tbe sounds of a heavy attack on
the legations, pushed forward in-
penendently,the Americans, French
and British on the left of the river
and the Russians and Japanese on
the right. Beginning at 2 o'clock
in the moning the Japanese diverted the brunt of the resistance to
the northern city, their artillery
engaging the Chinese heavily there.
The Americans and British met
with little resistance until they
entered the city, where there was
street fighting. Reilly's battery attempted to breach the inner wall.
The troops finally entered the
foreign settlement through the
canal. The Chinese had continually violated the armistice.
The food supplies sent to the legations by the Empress Dowager
were sufficient for one day.
The C. P. R. freight for Republic
is to be delivered hereafter at Midway instead of Grand Forks.
One of the exciting exercises of
the allied armies, since the entrance to Pekin, is "hunting the

MIIMMIMItMUMIIIMI ���-��� IMMMMMMMMI   llll^ August 25. 1900
It has become the fashion among
certain agnostics of the Press of this
country to sneer at com men tutors
on military events as "arm-chair
critics." Those same men will take
or granted anything whatever that
comes from tbe front, print it and
sell at a profit.
They overlook one cardinal point
and that is that the arm-chair
critics generally know their men and
just as one would never expect a
high standard of virtue as a result
of tbe deliberations of the denizens
of the bagnio, so is one safe in condemning the acts of warfare of a
community whose military training
has been one glorious drunk and
dressed up farce. I could speak
from my own knowledge and observation but I prefer to quote others
and in the meantime and for Borne
time to come the public will be
safer and gel more real knowledge
of Chinese events from the reports
and guidance of "The House of Jar-
dine" or of "Morgan of Mt. Morgan"
than they would or will from the
whole of the factors of the British
mili,tary-social-diplomatic combine
put together.
"Our diplomacy in China has
hopelessly broken down. Sir Claud
MncDonald had no special knowledge of China, the Chinese or diplomacy." Yet he was "sent out
there to match his brains against
the united counsels of the subtlest
diplomatic service in the world.
Our whole system is at fault. We
find in Russia the most stringent
test of a man's peculiar qualities
in relation to the demands of peculiar posts. With us, on the
other hand, our young men dance
until they are old and when their
heads are gray ihe lucky ones
among them may be rewarded with
a first secretaryship. There is no
attempt at selection Tbey get on
by seniority, the bright ones and
the donkeys and it is not too much
to say that in a profession which is
iu no sense open the donkeys preponderate. Of all the Ambassadors
and Ministers who now represent
the British Empire abroad, it is
computed that only two are brilliant by the standard of efficiency
which obtains in other callings and
only two more respectably capable."
So much for the diplomatic, now
for another authority as to the
military service. "The army has in
herited from the days when commissions were purchased, a fatal tradition���the tradition that though
to be a good officer it is necessary to
be a gentleman it is not necessary to be a methodical student.
It has not yet acquired another tradition���that of constant and continuous work,   The ignorance pre
valent among the officers of the
British army of the modern literature of their profession is without
parallel in any first rate army and
in any other temporal profession."
Hear yet another anent the militia which is generally "damned
with faint praise at the fug end of
tbe loyal and patriotic toast at
cattle show dinners."
"In the third Battalion of South
Wales Borderers out of twenty-three
officers only three have passed the
school of instruction." And yet
the "arm chair critic" is blamed for
caviling at the results of a system
which admits of the destiny of an
empire and the lives and liberty of
the soldiers of the Queen being entrusted to the purblind incompetence of men who have only just
scraped through the school of instruction by cribbing from their
fellow students offerings on the
shrine of ignorance.
Now as to the teachers of the untaught. One of the most trusted of
all, Col. Lonsdale Hale says, "Unfortunately, I have never seen a
chot fired in anger." Just so. But
there are whole hosts of military
men who have and who occupied
important training posts, one Sir
William Gatacre who hud been
instructor at the Royal Military
College found that he did not know
enough to look after his own command in South Africa, and the very
operations which have, time and
time again, earned the umpire's allotment of victory at the sham
battles in England are the very
same as those which, in face of a
real foe, have with a monotony and
a regularity surpassing the comprehension of man, led to some of the
most harassing and costly disasters
of the South African war. And the
War Office matches the rest of the
The confines of the Encyclopedia
Britannica would possibly just admit of the outlining of the manifold
sins and wickednesses of that inglorious institution. Hearken unto yet another authority. "The
hisfory of our military administration for the last thirty years is a
dismal record of perpetual change
proceeding on no fixed principle
and naturally failing to arrive at
any finality, the outcome at the
end being the state of things revealed by Lord Hartington's Commission, whose report, although guardedly expressed, as might be expected when three ex-war ministers
were members of it, is nevertheless
a scathing exposure of the confusion and want of system which pervade our military administration
and which with those who give the
matter serious attention must leave
a feeling of profound misgiving."
Sir John Chesney concludes: "If
its present lethargy continues the
country may have some day a
rude awakening. Her ocean girdle
may save England from falling into the depths of abasement which
befell Prussia after Jena and
France after Sedan; but if England
be safe from the humiliation of herself lying prostrate under the conqueror's heel, yet the English Empire
spread over the world is vulnerable at
every point. Neither Prussia in 1806
nor France in 1870 was so culpably
careless as we are now, nor invited
disaster so plainly as we shall do
if, after the warnings given, we
recklessly suffer our military administration to remain unreformed
and a system to be retained which
every inquiry made into it shows
to be utterly insufficient for the
purpose it is intended to fulfill."
Those who sow the wind reap
the whirlwind, by their fruits shall
ye know them. Here are some of
the fruits. Mr. G.. Hale of the
Daily News writes from South
Africa. "Let me tell you how our
army here is treated by the incompetents at home. I pledge my
word that everything written is
true else may I be scourged with
tongue and pen from every decent
Britain's home forever after. Gen.
Rundle's task is a colossial one,
bis front extends 100 miles from
Wilburg via Senekal to the borders
of Basutoland, any sane man would
think that gigantic efforts would
be made to keep him amply supplied with food. Such is not the
case. The men are absolutely
starving. They are worn to shadows. This is what the soldiers
are getting to eat and what they
are likely to get for a long time unless England rouses herself and
bites, to the bone the people who
are responsible for it. One pound
of raw flower every alternate day.
Each day be eats one pound of
bustuits. In this country there is
no fuel excepting a little ox dung
dried by the sun, and if a soldier is
lucky enough to gather some he
can go to the nearest watering
place, mix his cake without yeast
and make some sort of a wretched
mouthfull. He gets one pound of
meat daily which he generally
cannot cook and there his supper
"What has become of the rations
of rum, sugar, tea, cocoa, of groceries
generally?" Ask at the snug little
railway siding where the goods are
stacked and forgotten. Ask of the
big stores at the coast towns. Ask
in your own country where thousands of pounds of foodstuffs lie
rotting in the warehouses bound up
and tied down with red tape bandages. Ask���yes, ask itjbut don't
stop at asking���damn somebody
high up in power."
That's what Tommy gets at the
front by way of board, his lodging
is on the cold, cold ground, occasionally he is allowed a holiday
to get over an attack of enteric
fever, when there were more Boers
about he used to be frequently permitted to be ambushed, shot or
captured by way of variety and
pour encourager les autres. Then if
he is so fortunate as to be invalided
home he falls in for his share of
eternal glory thuswise, at least so
far as his Lord High Executioners
the war office imbeciles are concerned. Referring to the lack of an
official farewell to the returning
Canadians the Daily Mail   says:
"Theyleft without a note of music
to cheer them on their way and
without a voice to bid them God
speed and to testify to the gratitude of the old country. They
were bundled through the metropolis in vans, for all the world like
they were so many returned empties.
The war office is to blame. Is red tape
eternal? Can nothing be done to
wither up and destroy forever this
bane of our empire?"
You see the authorities were
probably otherwise busy, for just at
that time some of their brilliant
autumn manoeuvres were being
carried out preparing a fresh batch
of candidates for dum-dums and
damnation. Somehow though,
things are not going just as uoual.
In my time the comments of tbe
reviewing officer generally ran as
follows: "Men, I am proud of.
you, your horses are well-groomed,
your chins exactly in line, your
buttons exquisitely polished. You
are a credit to your country. Every
inin among you would, I knowr
follow me to bell. Go home damn
you !" But a change has "come
o'er the spirit of   their   dream."
Read this:
"London, Aug. 17. ��� Viscount
Wolseley, Field Marshal and Commander-in-chief of the British
army, delivered, according to the
Daily Mail, the most scathing condemnation ever heard at Aldershot.
After witnessing yesterday's ma-
noeuvers, he declared the 30.000
men who participated were utterly
unfit to send abroad, badly led and
badly taught. Many distinguished
officers listened to these remarks."
After which it is only necessary to
revert to the dictum of one more
"arm-chair critic," and in this
juncture it ought to be printed in
red ink and read aloud: "Al the
present moment the Commander-
in-chief has in his hands the entire
control of the education and instruction of the whole army. If,
therefore, the British army or any
portion of it is imperfectly instructed, either in tactics or any other
branch of the military art, the fail'
ure is directly attributable to the Commander-in-chief, who, in the education of the army, has never, so far
as is known, been subject to interference by the civil authorities."
The italics are mine the dictum
was laid down months before the
review took place, and the reviewing officer who was doing the condemnation act on that particular
'ccasion is no other than the

Our Minister of Finance, Hon.

said in the legislature the other
day, while opposing an application
for a charter for a railroad to relieve the Yukon people from the
extortionate exactions of the
Yukon and White Horse Pass railway monoply, that the originators
of that enterprise had a right and
should be permitted to maintain
the monoply and charge such rates
as they saw fit as a reward of their
daring and push in building the
road. Now, to be honest, doesn't
that sound nice, coming from a servant of the people? If Mr. Turner'B
reasoning in this respect is sound
and righteous, then that fellow who
the other day entered an express
car on a Pennsylvania railway,
killed the express agent and took
thousands of dollars from the safe,
is also entitled to the reward of
freedom for his daring enterprise.

that they intended to operate on

The Standard Oil Company of
New Jersey will pay a quarterly
dividend of eight per cent on one
hundred million dollars common
stock, making forty-eight per cent
for the year, or twelve per cent per
quarter, or a total sum of forty-
eight million dollars. Of this sum,
Mr. John D. Rockefeller, who owns
ahout one-third of the stock, will
have received about sixteen million
as his share. The rest will be
divided among the other shareholders, numbering, it is said, less
than one thousand pesons. When
this dividend was announced the
stock was rated at $535, which
would make the market value
$535,000,000. The dividend about
to be paid was to have made up
fifty per cent for the year, but owing to the fire at Constable Hook,
where the company lost a million
and a half, it was reduced by two
millions. Mr. Rockefeller is said
to enjoy, or at least have, an income greater than the incomes of
all the sovereigns of Europe, which
he collects out of the earnings of
the poor���the users of coal oil in
the United States and Canada.
He taxes as no monarch would
dare to tax, that is to say, he taxes
them at his own sweet will, and increases the taxes without their consent. He makes the two great subsidized railway companies of
Canada his jackals to enforce his
tuxes upon the Canadians. King
Charles lost his head, King James
his crown, and King George the
thirteen colonies for attempting far
less than this trust tyrant accomplishes every day, to the admiration of an envious world. Yet he
is not to be envied.   He himself
envies the poorest of his victims.
His wealth is of no use to him. He

Forced Out of Business by the Chinese.
Last Friday the writer hereof was
in Grand Forks, and was informed
by the proprietor of The People'3
Steam Laundry, M. A. McKinzie,
that that extensive enterprise would
cease operations the following Saturday night, on account of Chinese
competition which it could not
withstand. The exclusion of the
heathens from Phoenix, Greenwood
and Eholt had filled Grand Forks'
full to overflow with the.;e government pets, who lind increased the
number of Chinese wash-houses
and that line of competition to
such an extent as to make it absolutely impossible for the white
laundry to continue in business.
This is only one of many instances
of the baneful effects of the presence of Celestial washermen, and
serves as an illustration in a slight
degree of the trouble and hardships
soon to be the lot of white citizens
generally of this province, owing to
the mischievous policy of the present provincial and Dominion governments relative to the immigration and employment of Chinese
and Japanese cheap labor. The
People's Steam Laundry had employed only white help, and was
run at an expense of about $100
per week.
If the people of the above named
institution worked and voted
against Joseph Martin and his supporters and for the present government, they are getting what they
deserve; otherwise they are entitled
to the sympathy of all who have
the common weal in mind.

Tuesday a party of Cascade
citizens enjoyed a trip up Christina
lake on the s'.eamer Myrtle B. In
the party wtre Mr. and Mrs. J. H.
MacDonald, Mr. and Mrs. G. K.
Stocker, and their gue.4 from Spokane, Mi-s Frye; Mr. W. C. Simmons, Robert Lellman and Rev.
Mr. Barton. The excursionists report a very pleasant day of sports.
The social given in Montana hall
Saturday night last, uider the
auspices of the Mutual Aid Society
of Cascade, was fairly well attended
considering the fact that it was a
dime social pure and simple, the
amusements being of a light and
ancient order. All present seemed
toenjoy themselves, however. The
receipts from admissions and the
sale of lemonade amounted to
about $10.
The Beach brothers were in town
this week from the Victoria mine,
where sinking and crosscutting is
being prosecuted with vigor and
most gratifying results. The Cannonball force was also in Cascade
this week, and reports from that
mine are likewise very encouraging. Taken all in all, the mining
enterprises directly tributary to
this town ate not lacking in promise for the near future when their
merit by exploitation shall have
been established beyond a doubt.
Prospects in the Pierre lake district, if any reliance can be placed
on the reports coming from that
section, are attracting the attention
not only of the "little fish," but operators with abundance of means
are drawn there by the showings
already made. From the unanimity of views and actions of parties
interested on the American side,
there appears to le a very good
prospect for the building of the
wagon road from Pierre lake to the
river at Bowen's as an outlet to the
nearest railway point. It would be
only out part, in view of the benefit of such a road to Cascade, lo
lend assistance in the matter of
bridging Kettle river at that point
and maintaining the road hetween
here and there.

Length of the Intercolonial Railway, 1355 milen.
Cost to the people of Canada,
It connects the Maritime Provinces with old Canada���in other
words, connects Montreal, Quebec,
St. John, Moncton, Halifax, Sydney, independent of all the other
railways in Canada or out of
The Intercolonial is an essential
factor in a Canadian fast Atlantic
steamship express, making the
shortest and safest line between
Canada and Europe and the Western States and Europe. As long
as Canada controls the Intercolonial she can make any of one her
maritime cities the Atlantic port
of thiB fast steamship express.
Give up the Intercolonial and
Canada will have to submit to the
terms of the railways and the ocean
lineB. She will be no longer free
to pick the best port or to change
her port as circumstances require.
Her hands will be tied.
It is essential to Canada's national existence that she have Atlantic seaports reached by her own
railway and not be at the mercy of
the Grand Trunk or the Canadian
Pacific, both of which roads, though
enormously subsidized by Canada,
have deliberately declared that
they are strickly commercial, not
national, and that they intend to
cultivate Portland and Boston at
the expense of Canadian ports.
The Intercolonial is the highway
to the great coal fields, iron beds,
and iron smelting works now being
established in Cape Breton. The
iron industry of Cape Breton could
be frozen to death by private railways.
The Intercolonial will be an essential factor in bringing Newfoundland into the Confederation.
As it is to-day the Intercolonial
is a check in the east on the two
big corporations winter and summer; much more so in summer, as
now that the Intercolonial comes to
Montreal it will be able to handle
freight by alliances with boats clear
up to the head of Port Arthur.
But once the Intercolonial is put
at the Georgian Bay via Ottawa and
at the Niagara and Detroit rivers
via Toronto it will be an efficient
and everlasting check on the Grand
Trunk and on the C. P. R. It will
be an effective regulator of these
and other roads. But it must be en-
tirely free from any entanglement
with the other companies. The effect of this regulating power would
be felt clear up to Port Arthur.
The Intercolonial at Georgian
Bay will be in touch with the Canadian Northern, the promised rival of the C. P. R. in the North-
west and British Columbia.
The great present object is to
keep the Intercolonial free and independent, and next to put it in
touch with the rich freight-giving
Province of Ontario, Ontario paid
largely for it, but has no direct
benefit from it.
Fearsome of what the Intercolonial is, still more frightened as to
what it may become, a movement
has been started to destroy it, to
tangle it up in deals, to create distrust in it, to lead people to believe
that a state-owned railway is, if
not impossible, a source of political
corruption, and that it ought to be
got rid of���by giving it over to the
Canadian Pacific.
The Intercolonial is Canada's
greatest present asset, and its immediate possibilities are still more
Any man, journal or party that
proposes to cripple, alienate or destroy the usefulness of the national
railway is an enemy of the nation,
a traitor to the people and a friend
of the great railway corporations.
There is no political crime in sight
equ 1 in enormity to this one. And
yet it is now in contemplation���
has been the object of a conspiracy
for years. It has been revived with
much fervor within the present
year. There are politicians and
newspapers actively engaged in this
conspiracy to-day !
Give the C. P. R. the Intercolonial and the y can bond it for forty
million dollars, and with forty
millions what could they not do in
the way of buying up politicians,
newspapers and parliaments.
Give the C. P. R. the Intercolonial and you increase its power by
one hundred million dollars; you
put the east under the same freight
bondage of which the west complains, and you put back the hands
of the clock fifty years. We are in
a ten times better position than the
people of the United States in effecting emancipation from the
thraldom of railways by keeping
the splendid beginning that we
have of a national railway system.
