Vol. I.
CASCADE, B. C, APRIL 8, 1899.
No. 22.
HE SAYS REPUBLIC IS ON THE WANE.
Ira Black Satisfied to Remain With tbe Gateway City.
Ira Black, one of the proprietors
��� f Black's hotel, returned Tuesday
from Republic, where he also has
an establishment. Mr. Black is
not as enthusiastic as some people
are over the business outlook at
Patsy Clark's widely advertised
gold camp. Business was good for
a while, but all'of a sudden it fell
off at least 75 per cent, and did not
go back again. Every stage yet
has a crowd on it for Republic, but
already every stage going out has a
b'gger load. One day, a dozen
pissengers wishing to get out'could
not be accommodated.
Only a dozen men are working
just now at the great Republic
mine, and there are numbers of
people on the street. " Why, if
you make a couple of dollars
there," said Mr. Black, '' there are
a dozen men after those cartwheels
to eat on. There will he a few good
mines there, but every business
line is overdone. At present there
are 15 hotels and saloons and
three more are preparing to open.
No, sir ;" said he, "Cascade is good
enough for me. No more Republic
in mine."
Kettle River Charter
THREE NEW POST-OFFICES.
Christina, McRae Landing and Gladstone are
v Now Sack
Pursuant to instructions from
the postal authorities, Postmaster
Cameron, of this city, last Sunday
made up the first lot of separate
sacks for the new post offices which
were recently established on the
Brooklyn wagon road. The first of
these went tn the office to be officially known is Christina, being
located at Levally's, with that
gentleman as postmaster; the second was for McRae Landing on
Christina lake, at the Cove, where
Frank Asprey is postmaster, in the
B. C. Syndicate's branch store.
The third is at Gladstone, and W.
Forrest is the postmaster.
All of these have heen anticipated
for some time, since the new mail
route over that road was established. They will he a great convenience, not only to the railway
men, but to the large number of
prospectors and mining men that
are interested in the Christina lake
And Burnt'Basin mining districts.
Mail will he carried to each twice
weekly.
More Bridge Repairing.
Constable Dftismore was down
from the Forks Tuesday, and
looked over the Cascade wagon
bridge with Constable Darraugh.
They agreed that the west approach
was in such had condition that it
would require replanking throughout. It hegins to look as though
the government would have to
open its heart and spend a few
more dollars on this bridee which
it bought last year but never paid
for.
P. Burns & Co. have decided to
close their butcher shop on Sundays hereafter.
Last Tuesday's semi-monthly
meeting of the Cascade Taxpayers'
Association was one of unusual
importance, and notice had been
sent out previously by the secretary
that a resolution to endorse the
granting of the Kettle River Railway charter by the Dominion parliament, would be presented for
consideration.
Other business came up and was
transacted, but the   above   notice
was evidently what the majority]
of those present were most interested in.
The following is the form of the
resolution, which was moved by J.
H. Good, and seconded by John
Earle, and was unanimously
carried :
Whereas, a petition has been presented to the dominion government
bv D. C. Corbin, for a charter
authorizing the construction of a
railroad from the state of Washington, United States of America,
through that portion of southern
British Columbia known as the
Kettle River valley, and
Whereas, in the opinion of this
association, said railway would be
beneficial to the business interests
of the section of British Columbia
through which it would pass;
therefore,
Resolved, that this association
favors the granting of a charter for
any railroad through this section
upon first obtaining assurance of
the immediate construction of the
same; further
Resolved, that copies of this
resolution be forwarded to Hon.
Mr. Blair, minister of railways and
canals, and to Hon. Hewitt Bostock.
This is the wish of the business
men of Cascade, expressed through
the business association of the
place. It is a plain, straightforward endorsement of the long-
talked-nf plan to build a railway
up the Kettle River valley. There
is no verbosity or circumlocution
about it. The people believe in it
and the people want it.
For years the residents of the
district have heen doing everything
possible to secure the construction
of this line of road, believing that
it would be of vast assistance in
opening up the great treasure
vaults to be found in the Boundary
country.
When D. C. Corbin first pro-,
jected his line from Spokane, and
began construction work in 1889,
he no more thought of going to
Rossland or Nelson with it than of
going to Revelstoke or Kuskonook.
The Boundary was his destination,
and at that time his engineers ran
lines up the Kettle river valley,
over the present site of Cascade,
and on up tn near where Greenwood is now located. Should he
he granted the charter now asked
for, he will be but carrying out his
original intention. Cascade was'j
selected and held all these years
because the assurance was definitely
given that the m w railway to be
built north from Spokane would
certainly come up this great valley.
Should this road be built, and
there is said to be good reason for
believing that the charter will be
granted and construction started
this year, Cascade will be the first
place in Canada it will touch, and
the first to benefit, not only from
the actual building operations, but
permanently after the line is completed.
Thinks it Will be Granted.
The Ottawa correspondent of the
Toronto Globe says the news that
the board of trade of Victoria had
passed a resolution endorsing the
Kettle River railway project was
welcomed by the parliamentary
friends of the proposition, who
have greatly increased in number
during the recess. News of the
action of the city council of Grand
Forks in endorsing the project has
been conveyed to the senators and
members' by means of circulars
signed by the civic officers. It is
as certain as anything can he that
parliament will view the situation
in a new light this session, and
that the demand of the people of
Fouthern British Columbia for
railway competition will be granted.
The Rossland Board of Trade, at
a largely attended meetirg held
last Wednesday, passed a resolution endorsing the application for
the Kettle River Railway charter.
much pleased at the result of the
assays. Altogether nearly $15 was
obtained from the surface in gold,
silver and lead. This is so encouraging that work will probably be
done soon on the claim. It was
located hy A. L. McDonald, but
several others are interested.
A deal is on for the Hccdo group,
adjoining the Mystery group, near
Gladstone, both heing owned by
Willarscii and Johnson.
la the Districts.
The shaft or. the Mother Lode,
in Deadwood camp, is down 215
feet, and 26 men are employed.
The Katie L. in Providence camp
is to be worked soon by the Rosalia
(Wash.) company that purchased
the property.
The first payment of $7,000 has
been made to Messrs. Denzler,
Wood and McDonnell, on the bond
on the Snowshoe, recently taken by
J. W. Astley. The next payment
of $28,000 comes due in 6 months.
The Old Ironsides, in Greenwood
camp, has started its big compressor plant, which works like a
charm, the same outfit running 10
drills, 2 hoists and 8 pumps. There
are now over 900 feet of workings
in the Knob Hill, adjoining, all in
ore.
{ NINES AND MINING |
Monday morning a force of men
will start for Gladstone and the
Burnt Basin to inaugurate development work on the properties of
the Mother Lode Mines, Ltd., recently sold to that corporation by
Mike Shick and associates. Mr.
Shick arrived in Cascade last Wednesday from Rossland with the
Jackson boys and Jus. Harrison.
He informs the Record th.it five or
six men will be put to work now,
and a little later the force will be
increased to a dozen The company has ample funds in the treasury, and proposes to begin at once
demonstrating the depih and width
of the famous Mother Lode free
gold ledges.
Mr. Shick says that several other
concerns are getting ready to operate in the Burnt Basin as soon as
they can get in there to advantage.
Among them are Fred Fredericks
on the International group, Richard Cooper on the Solid Gold group
and the Avon M. & M Co. on the
Ennismore group. In addition,
hundreds of prospectors are preparing to invade the Basin this
season.
The owners of the Agitator, the
location recently made in Cascade,

Ladies First Supper and Conversazione was
Well Patronised.
The ladies of the Cascade Pres-
terian church who got up the supper and conversazione last Thursday night at the Cascade auditorium, deserve great credit for the
successful outcome of the affair.
From 6 to 8 o'clock a most appetising supper was served, and the
several daintily laid tables were
well patronized by the young men
<>f the city.
At 8:30 the entertainment or
conversazione was begun, and continued for an hour and a half.
Under the pleasing chairmanship
of Rev. Joseph McCoy, the pastor,
the affair passed off pleasantly.
Each number on the programme
seemed to strike a responsive chord
in the audience, and each was accorded generous applause. The
following is the program in full:

During the last week Mrs, Geo.
Baker has been very ill with pleurisy, and her husband being away,
a number of ladies in Cascade have
taken turns in sitting up with and
caring for her. The suggestion has
been made that the ladies of the
city form themselves into a' sort of
aid society, for the purpose of
meeting just such emergencies. A
woman could be secured, say at a
few dollars per month, to be ready
to take care of such cases, to 'be
paid also by the day for time
actually occupied. The matter is
worth thinking over and acting
on.

THAT KETTLE RIVER CHARTER.
The Cascade Taxpayers' Association has unanimously endorsed the
proposition now before the Dominion parliament for the granting of
the charter for the Kettle River
Valley Railway, and the result of
its action has heen ordered sent to
the minister of railways and to our
member; Mr. Bostock. That residents of this growing place, right
in the path of the proposed new
line of railway, should take this
action, was to be expected.
At Greenwood and Grand Forks
the business men are all of a like
mind in this matter, and are
thoroughly in earnest in their
belief that we should have railway
competition in the Boundary. Even
the Victoria board of trade, that
last year declared against the
charter, is this year heartily in
favor of it.
All the indications are that the
charter will be granted and at an
early date. Whether it will be
sold by Mr. Corbin or not is of
little consequence, bo long as the
railway is built. And that it will
be speedily built, if the charter is
granted, is generally conceded. It
will be one of the best things that
ever happened to the Boundary
country.
WHET CAN WE EXPECT?
The Record has been endeavoring to ascertain what amount of
the late appropriations by the government was likely to he spent
on trails, roads and bridges near
Cascade. But it seems next to
impossible to rind out anything
satisfactory or definite.
James M. Martin, our member,
wrote that " ample provision had
been made "���a nice little ambiguous phrase. Mr. Norris, the government agent at Vernon, wrote
that this immediate locality had
been taken out of his district, and
that consequently no part of the
appropriations for Yale could be
spent here. H. R. Townsend,
mining recorder at Rossland, and
attending to the work of Gold
Commissioner Kirkup while the
latter gentleman is absent, writes
that he is informed " that it is the
intention to expend the appropriations  throughout   the   district,"
which would include this section.
In other words, our people will
be fortunate if, after all the pressure possible is brought to bear for
needed roads and trails around
Rossland, there is a moiety left for
the Christina lake country.
The appropriation of 115,000 for
the road work of the riding will
not be available till after the 30th
of June. In the meantime those
interested should get together and
lay before the gold commissioner
the greatest needs in this line.
From his answer we can then tell
what to expect.
Mr. R. E. Gosnell, ex-provincial
librarian, who recently enjoyed a
trip through the Boundary country,
appears to think there are a few
little thing!? he would havearranged
differently, in this section. For
instance, there are far too many
townsites, he believes, for the good
of the district. Evidently, Mr.
Gosnell has forgotten that everything points to the probability
of this being one of the most thickly
fettled portipns of the province
within the next very few years.
This scattering of community interests will, however, prevent the
thing needed most���the building
up of a large city in the Boundary,
like that of Spokane.
IN AND AROUND CASCADE.
Cascade is in Rossland Riding,
so far as appropriations for roads,
trail*) and bridges go. But Constable Dinsmore, of Grand Forks, presumably acting under orders from
Government Agent Norris, of Vernon, in Yale, attends to repairs on
the Cascade wagon bridge. Can
any one tell us whether, after all,
we have really been kicked entirely
out of Yale ? It would be some
small satisfaction to know.
Cascade s'.iould have a sub-recording office. Such an office
could be conducted on the percentage plan and be of but little expense to the government. It would,
however, be of the greatest utility
to prospectors and mining men in
the Christina lake section. Some
of them are forced to travel from
30 to 40 miles to record papers,
and it works a great and unnecessary hardship.
The recent terrible conflagration
in New York, in which a number
of lives were lost, has served to
open the eyes of many in regard to
proper fire escapes. The Cascade
fire wardens are now, as always, up
and doing, and already orders have
been placed for sufficient ladders
to reach the upper windows of all
the ten and fifteen story buildings
in town.
China will have a fall soon and
be broken into fi.vefnl pieces.

Uncle Sam, are getting ready to

and next week the force will be increased.
Dr. S. C. Richards, government
veterinary inspector, has been stationed at Cascade, and has already
begun his duties.

W. F. Askew, formerly chief
clerk in the government office at
Nelson, B.C., has opened an office
in connection with John A. Coryell
at Grand Forks. Having a long

Mr. Askew will doubtless find
plenty of business at the Forks.

THE CASCADE RECORD

BY THE WAYSIDE
itlWMWIWttlMUWIWtUtltltltit
One of the first effects of the
immense amount of advertising
which the Boundary country has
been receiving for the last few
months, is the flood of barn-storm-
ers which has set this way. They
have heard and read the tales of
the mineral richness of thecountry,
have noted the great influx of fortune hunters, and so have concluded that the field is an excellent
one for them to cultivate and to
gather a few shekels from. As a
result the good people of the several
parts of the Boundary have already
been treated to the privilege of
listening to the vanguard of this
army of theapians. It is said, also,
by the way, that numerous theatrical companies are headed this
way, so there will be no dearth of
this sort of thing for a while at
least.
It iB interesting to note the personnel of these travelling aggregations, which may readily be divided
into three classes, the good, the in-
different and the bad. As a rule
they are of the second class, though
occasionally real artists are found
among them. Then there is the
multifarious schemer with his
jack-o'-lantern show, the lecturer,
the worn out variety artist and the
worthless fag ends of all kinds of
entertainments.
They all come with the idea that
any old show will go in this section ; but they never made a bigger
mistake, as the most intelligent
and best of educated people are
living in the Boundary. Then
they come���but only occasionally
���and think it policy to give the
local papers the go-by. These are
usually hoisted with their own
petard, however, by being greeted
with slim houses. Cascade, being
the Gateway City and entrepot, is
the first objective point.
It is pleasant to note that Acting
Inspector Dorman, of the postal
service, is once more looking into
the wretched mail service of the
district. He was interviewed in
Rossland the other day, and had a
long list of reasons for it, and this
week has been in the Boundary,
where he always has troubles. He,
of course, cannot control the service across the line, but he can
continue to show to the American
authorities where abuses exist,
which certainly cannot be slower
in being acted on than they are
in Canada. On this side of the
line, however, Mr. Dorman should
give us a better service. It is
possible ; we are entitled to it, and
we are not going to let up on it
until a permanent improvement is
inaugurated.
��� It is evident that the Ottawa
postal officials do not appreciate
the importance of the Boundary,
and that it has already grown to
where last year's allotment of help
is totally inadequate. This is
shown hy what recently happened
at Grand Porks. Numerous complaints had gone in and finally a
new postmaster, C. W. White of
Kamloops, was appointed. He
went to the Forks, remained one
day, noted that there was work
enough for two men, and salary
for but one, and decided not to
accept the position, as he would bo
forced to hire a clerk at his own
expense to keep the office up as it
should be done. As a result a
recommendation by the inspector
for extra salary allowance will
probably go in, and after several
months of redtapism, it may be
granted.
The C. P. R. officials at Ottawa,
it is said, have given it out that
even the residents of the Boundary
country, now that a railway is
actually under construction into
the Boundary district, are indifferent as to the Kettle River charter.
Let them not deceive others, if
they do deceive themselves. Greenwood, Grand Forks and Cascade
have all been active in making
themselves heard on this momentous subject. Neither do they
speak in any uncertain tone. It is
a matter of record that they are
more anxious today than ever for
railway competition. They have
no desire to be bound hand and
foot hy one corporation and will,
in the future, as in the past, do
everything possible to bring about
the construction of another line.

FIREMEN'S DANCE WAS A SUCCESS.
Cascade Auditorium Was the Scene of the
Festive Occasion.
Monday evening's dance, given
for the purpose of raising funds to
assist the fire wardens in securing
some simple implements for fire
purposes, was a social success.
About forty couples took part, and
enjoyed themselves to their fill
from 9:30 to 2:30 at the Cascade
Auditorium, use of which had been
donated for the occasion. The
committee on arrangements had
everything in readiness, and the
dancers all had a good time. Floor
managers Lynch, O'Reilly and
Row were on hand constantly and
made everyone at home. The
music, consisting of piano and
violin, was all that could be desired
and the dances were arranged in a
generally satisfactory way.
A feature of the evening was the
cake walk, which provoked no
small amount of merriment. The
prize was won by George K. Stocker
and Miss Bloomgreen.
"We Lick the World."
The Hon. P. M. G. should instruct every post office to have a
damp whitewash brush on hand for
moistening those two-cent porous
plasters, says an Ontario paper.
When a man has the end of one of
those geographical sheets in his
mouth, he might well exclaim,
" We lick the world," and it is no
wonder that after licking a vaster
empire than has been, the ordinary
man feels as stuck up about the
mug, as if his wife's cousin had
just been appointed poundkeeper.
THEliWlEraHTloUsrUW.
Now in Force For Miners and Costs $100 or
More to Break It.
Since April 1st it is the law that

manager or lessee, one hundred
dollars, and if he is any other person, ten dollars, for each offence,
then in case of an owner, agent,
manager or lessee, to a further
penalty not exceeding one hundred
dollars and not less than ten dollars for every day after such notice
that such offence continues to be
committed and in case of other
persons, to a further penalty not
exceeding five dollars .for every
day after such notice that such
offence continues to be committed."
Section 34 reads : " No prosecution shall be instituted against the
owner, agent, manager or lessee of
a mine to which this act applies
for any offence under this aci
which can be prosecuted before a
court of summary jurisdiction except by an inspector, or with the

the Cause of the Trouble���Cascade Sacks
Lost lor Three Days.
At last one of the postal knots
hereabouts bus been untangled���
and it was quickly done. It has
been notorious for some time that
the pay allowed fur the Grand
Porks office was far too inadequate
for the rapidly increasing work. A
short time ago Mr. Manly, the
postmaster \here, resigned and C.
" W. White, of Kamloops, was appointed in his place. The latter
gentleman declined to accept the
responsible position for the in-
significent salary offered. Thus
matters were when Inspector Dorman arrived at ��� the Porks last
Monday morning.
Deputy R. F. Petrie, decided that
with the inspector hud come the
time for action, and when the inspector got there he found a big
pile of mail sacks on the sidewalk.
Mr. Petrie refused to touch them
until personally assured of adequate compensation, and in the
meantime the Grand Forks business men were anxiously awaiting
their mail. Mr. Dorman argued
hut Mr. Petrie was firm. He had
heen underpaid long enough, and
finally terms were agreed upon.
The matter was wired to Ottawa
and Deputy Geo. H. Hull, of Rossland, was ordered to take charge of
the Grand Forks post office. This
was countermanded later, however.
A petition has been gotten up and
generally signed, asking that Mr.
Petrie be appointed postmaster.
In the meantime Cascade's sacks
are delivered to any old place.
Monday night's sack turned up
Thursday night, but where it had.
