No. 39.
,W�� !���
Premier Semlin Has Many Troubles of
/ Hi* Own.   ,���$.��.,
Opposition Forces Claim, that the Qovernment
Must Fall Soon and an Appeal to the
People Follow.
The latest dispatches from Victoria indicate that thus far Premier
Semlin Has-imt-succeeded in tilling
the vacant cabinet position of attorney-general.
Helmcken Refused It.
Vancouver, B. C, Aug. 3���Since
the refusal yesterday by H. D.Hel-
ni#ken, senior member for Victoria,
of the office of attorney-general in
Premier Semlin's cabinet, the political situation has remained outwardly unchanged. It is generally
understood tonight .that Alexander
Hender.-on, member for New Westminster, is to get the vacant office.
It was a question in the minds of
the leaders in the cabinet whether
he could be jc-.elected on taking
office. Today a peiition is being
signed in N��w. Westminster in
favor of Henderson, and if this
should represent a majority of the
electors, it is understood he will
accept* the vaoant portfolio ,';and
take his chances of re-election."
���   Joy In Opposition Camp.
Victoria, Bl C, Aug. 3.���There
is joy in the opposition camp tonight on account of the sure defeat
of the .government. Try as he will,
Premier SemMn cannot get a�� at*
tomey-general, and it must be but
a short time until the lieutenant-
governor dismisses him and calls
upon someone else to form a cabinet. An announcement to this
effect may he expected 'any   time.
Is Now at a Critical Stage.
Victoria, B. C, Aug. 2���The
political situation today reached 11
critical stage, and the outlook is
that the* Semlin Government is
doomed and will fall 'Within the!
next few days, When Joe Martin'
was thrust out. of the cabinet" there
seemed a chance of a coalition, but
instead of making concessions and
reversing the part of its policy
objectionable to the opposition it
would try to find an attorney-gen-
fjraHn its own tanks. This has
not proved an^ easy mutter and
the trouhle was accentuated by
the lieutenant-governor; when he
returned from Atlin insisting upon
the Premier at once filling the position of attorney-genera,l, as that is
one of tlie'pcVsilibh'fi1'which the constitutional a'ct'iaVs down must he
filled as a necessity to form, the
'executive. Then' the government
found itse'f after several trials, reduced to oiie man,r Alexander Henderson, member for Westminster
City. They found, however, that
he is so weak in his own constituency that he would almost certain
ly be defeated when he went for
re-election, as a member must do
who joins the cabinet.
Today, as a last chance, H. D.
'Helmcken, Q. C, opposition member for Victoria City, was approached to take the position, but a meet*-
ing of the opposition members,
whom he com-ulted late this afternoon, decided against accepting
the olive branch, and now ther'e
seems no chance of filling the position. "���>This being the,case, Premier
Semlin .will be ohMged< to. resign!,
and well informed politicians here

must fall. .tfe'.i.,. ..   -.,
Will Start From Cascade.
Supt. Rogers, of the Columbia
Stage Co., was ia,. tfiwn Thursday,
and ordered some changes in the
running of stages. Heretofore
three four-horse rigs have run
through ;e>ffc!lv; way daily, to and
from Bossburg. By the new arrangement one of these is taken off,
and instead a.s'Jflge.will be started
to run from Cascade to the Forks.
This is in ari'ticipat'ion that, even
before the railway track is accepted
by the C. P. R. as far as Cascade,
there will be more or less travel
over the new line to and through
Cascade. The new schedule goes
into effeot.-.--today. ' .   ,

Strike. Reported on Bryant Also���Manager of
Mother Lode, in Burnt Basin, In Town-
Peter Larson, the .railway contractor and mine owner, has been
spending the week in Cascade with
his family. He came to see the
rails laid into Cascade, which is
expected to happen almost any
hour now. Last night the track;
layers were waiting at the last
small bridge and in 'plain sight of
town, for the ten carloads of stringers which are due from the coast.
But for this unforeseen delay the
track would have reached Kettle
river by last night.
Mr. Larson states that the grading is now complete to Midway, a
distance of 99 miles from West
Robson���with the exception of the
work on the spurs to Greenwood
and Deadwood camps. It. is now
estimated that the rails will Vie laid
to Midway by the end of September. The long tunnel through Bull
Dog mountain, which is half done,
or over 1,500 feet, is now progressing raoidly, and will be completed
by winter. Mr. Larson is much
pleased at the way the work is done
and also with its thorough character from start to finish.
Jack Spaulding, manager of,.the
work on the Cannon Ball group, on
Christina lake, sent word to the
Record this week that the shaft he
had been sinking had at last reached pay ore. For the last month, a
double shift has beenworkingT.-(vnd
at a depth of 30 feet a ledge of fiw
ore* some three feet id, widtl^was
encountered. Work is beingwn,-
tinued, and the ledge is^widening
with depth. There is every indication of this proving agreat property.
Word was received yesterday
that a strike had been made on the
Bryant claim, located back of Eng-
lish Point. Details of the strike
are not at hand, but it is said that
two and a half feet of good ore was
reached;,in the shaft. Messrs. Bryant and'Staples are th# owners.
;!:R. -H.' H; Alexander, manager of
the Mother Lode, Burnt Basin, was
in town Wednesday, oil his way to

better with every shot. The shaft
is now down over '35 feet.
Work has been started on a tennis court on the rise just east'of

When the government caucus
was held last week Attorney-General Martin found that nearly all
of his late admirers had left his
support, and bowing to the inevir
table he sent in his resignation to
a seat in the cabinet, at the same
time vowing vengeance on those
who caused his downfall.
At this writing Lieut.-Governor
Mclnnes, who returned from Atlin
last Sunday, had taken no action,
and there is no little speculation
as to what may be the outcome of
the political muddle. In many
quarters it is believed that the
lieutenant-governor will get his son
to fill Joe Martin's t��hoes. Others
think that Harry Helmcken or
Alex. Hetiderson may take the vacant cabinet position. Government supporters all profess tp believe that the discord is now over,
and that the appointment of a new
attorney-general will smooth over
the troubled waters. It is barely
possible that this will be the result
of the temporary upheaval, but
many do not agree with this view,
and assert that, outside of the
Martin imbroglio, the conduct of
the entire administration has been
of a weak, unsatisfactory character
to the country at large; that Mr.
Mclnnes is well aware of this, and
that he will call for another appeal to the people.
Joe Martin's personality was
most certainly strongly impressed
upon the other ministers of the
crown, and hut little business was
transacted that he did not have
his finger in the pie somewhere.
But Joe could not hold himself
down, and as a result he wa? hoisted with his own petard. Should
the government hold together, it
remains to be seen whether his
successor will he the right man in
the right place.
Que thing is needed sorely, and
that is more attention paid to this
section hy the government. In
whatever changes are made Koot
enay and Yale members should be
at the front in seeing that the interior needs are no longer neglected.
No one thing, perhaps, attracts
as much attention to a mining section as a creditable exhibit of its
ores, well arranged and cared for,
and placed before those likely to
be interested in such matters. On
the 3d of October the Spokane Industrial Exposition will open, and
the mineral department is being
made the most important, possibly,
of all. At any rate, every camp of
any importance, within 200 miles
of Spokane, will be well represented
there. And well they may, for
last year there was an average of
over 7,000 paid admissions for each
day of the fair. Of these the large
majority visited the mineral department, and sales of British Columbia mining properties are well
known to have resulted. This year
greater efforts are being put forth
for the ore exhibit, and consequently it will he worth more to
the camps represented from an advertising standpoint.
It ib time that a move was made
to gather samples of the best ores
obtainable from Christina lake
camps. The exposition management has appointed Mr. George K.
Stocker, of this city, to look after
the specimens, and see that they
are properly packed, shipped and
placed on exhibition. Mr. S-Uocker
is more than willing to devote the
necessary time for this, but requests
the co-operation of the mine-owners
and prospectors to this end. The
matter should be taken up and vigorously pushed till a creditable

running into Cascade with some
degiee of regularity, is still a debatable .question. Probably, in a
couple of weeks after the long Kettle river bridge, east of town, is
crossed, it will be done���if the inspectors get through their work by
that date. At this writing���Friday
afternoon���the end of the track is
in sight from the: Record office, a
couple of miles tip the grade; but
the expected has happened, and
the necessary stringers for the last
two bridges have not yet arrived
from the coast, and nothing further ciin be done till they get here.
The missing timbers are expected
daily, however, and the work of
putting down the rails to Kettle
river is then a small matter.

Morris McCarty, the mining pro-
motor of Bossburg, passed through
Cascade on his return trip from the
upper Boundary country this
week, arid reports times as being
good in that section, He will return in a short time and.look over
the Burnt Basin district, from
which He has heard such good reports. Mr. McCarty has extensive
minirfg interests in and around
Bossburg, notably the properties ot
the Uncle Sam and Great Columbia Mining companies, of which he
is the heaviest stockholder. Both
properties are-being worked stead*
ily and great things are predicted
Mr. McCarty was formerly treasurer of Whatcom county, Washington, and was the promoter and
half owner of the Whatcom street
car system, and a large property
holder during the lioom clays of
Bellingham Bay. He was also interested in the Bellingham Bay
Daily Express during its short but
melodramatic existence. :>���'������
P. A. O'Parreli, rlie coftespouv
dent, returned from a trip to Boundary and Republic thifc week arid
stopped in Cascade. Mr. O'Farrell
fil*��t came to Spokane some ten
yuatsflgo, and was cine of those
who wrote 'up "the Rossland of old
boom days' in such entertaining
style for syndicates of e*i*terti jour*
nals. He is now visiting some of
the comparatively newer ramps, in
regard to which he will gixehis
views beforeljj>ng. He recently
severely criticised Joe Martin's
actions at the Mackintosh banquet,
and incidentally the eight-hour
law.- vThis brought down tbe wrath
of the labor unions, but P. A.
seems to stand it.
F. Pv Rathbone, of London, England, who sailed for this' side of the
herring pond on the 27th ultimo,
and will come direct to Cascade
with the family of T. F. Carden, is
a mining- expert of considerable
note. When Col. Peyton was'endeavoring to sell the LeRoi mine
in London to the B. A. C, it was
largely through the instrumentality of Mr. Rathbone that the deal
was finally put through, and the
rich dividend payer passed into
English hands. Mr. Rathbone is
now en route to the Klondike, to
report upon some promising ..'mining properties for a wealthy English syndicate. He is also a director, in the B. C. Mercantile and
Mining,Syndicate, of Cascade, and
while here he will examine several
Ctms.tina lake properties, with a
view to exploiting them. He is expected here about the middle of the
month.    '
Duncan Ross, editor of the Greenwood Times, stopped over night on
Tuesday in Cascade, on his way tn
the congress of the boards of trade
at Rossland. Mr. Ross is a pioneer
in the Boundary creek district,
starting his excellent weekly in
Greenwood when there was little
there but log shanties and shacks.
He had sublime faith in the out*
come, however, and is now beginning to gather in the rewards of
patience and labor. While he is
said to have a political bee busily
btuzing in his bonnet, no one will
gainsay that he has one of the best
papers published in Yale district. 6

Abtatf ef Thm.
Jack Stewart, superintendent of
railway construction on the new
line, and Dick Porter, of Porter
Bros. & McArthur, who are building the bridges and laying the
track, got into a discussion last
Saturday, as to when the Sutherland creek bridges would have the
steel down on them. Both, of
course, were desirous of getting the
track into Cascade at the earliest
possible moment. On* 400-foot
bridge had to receive tbe stringers,
ties and rails, while a shorter one,
some 200 feet long, also had to be
completed and crossed. To settle
the argument a good natured
wager was made by Mr. Stewart
that the track-layers would not
reach the end of the second bridge
by noon of last Monday. The bet
was $100 a side.
Mr. Porter promptly took him
up. Some say that he went to the
bridge gang, told them the situation and of the wager, and that
the $100 would be theirs if the second bridge was crossed in the time
mentioned. Be that as it may, the
men, who were already working at
high pressure, took off the safety
Valve, as it were, and let themselves out to make a record���and

The mineral department will be
one of the strongest portions of the
Spokane Industrial Exposition,
which opens October 3rd. The enthusiasm which the mining men
of Spokane have put into this enterprise has been supplemented by
the energy of the mining men in
all the camps. The result has
been that already more camps and
districts have promised to exhibit
and are actually preparing their
exhibits than ever before were presented at the fruit fair on the very
day of opening���and yet it is two
months before the exposition
will open. This insures that this
exhibit will be the finest mineral
display ever made in the Pacific
Van B. DeLashmutt, Captain
C. H. Thompson, L. K. Armstrong
and other leading mining men of
Spokane are doing everything they
can for this department. Letters
were sent out to 80 camps, and already 50 of them  have   replied,
agreeing to exhibit at the exposition. Mining men realise that it
is important to make exhibits at
Spokane this year, for there will be
visitors at the exposition from far
and wide.      .
Mining men and capitalists will
be present from California, from
the coast and from all parts of the
east and Canada, and at least one
big excursion of capitalists and
mine owners will be run from Boston to the exposition. These excursionists will stop a week or ten
days in Spokane, examining the
ores at the exposition and taking
brief runs into the mining districts
about the city. Hence it stands to
reason that every camp and district should make as complete an
exhibit as possible this year.
The camps and districts which
already have agreed to exhibit and
are preparing, their ores are the

The development of a mine is
exploration. The. stoping and
working of a mine after it is developed is exploitation. A good maxim in mining is keeping exploration well in advance of exploitation.
A normal fault is one in which
the hanging wall has sunk relatively to the foot wall, and a
reverse or thrust fault is one in
which the hanging wall side has
moved upward relatively to the
foot wall.

Brief Blta From Many Camp*.
The statement is made that the
B. G. mine, in Summit camp, now
has a million dollars worth of ore
in sight.
The B. A. C. has commenced
work on the La Fleur-Oomstock
properties on La Fieur mountain,
near Nelson, Wash.
Nearly a thousand prospectors
are now in the Similkameen country, coming from the Kootenay,
Boundary and coast points.
A drift is being run at the bottom of the 30-foot shaft on the
War Cloud, on Pathfinder mountain. The ledge has widened out
to four feet.
It it* reported that those who
have established themselves with
sluice boxes on the head waters of
Kettle river, at the scene of the late
placer excitement, express themselves as well contented.
An option is said to have been
secured on all the conflicting interests of the famous Seattle mine
and it is probable that within a
short time there will be a successful  flotation of the prottorty.
It is claimed that at the 275-foot
level the Jewel mine, in Loop Lake
camp, hai) eight feet of solid ore,
which will run $80 to the ton, and
the pay chute has been proven to
extend to a considerable length.
The new 80 h. p. boiler and 50
h. p. hoist, being installed at the
Old Ironsides mine, can be used to
the 1000-foot level. Its capacity is
three tons and its speed.is 500 feet
in three minutes. The No. 1 shaft
is down 210 feet and the No. 2
shaft 320 feet. At the 200-font
level 1400 feet of work have been

per ton. There are 15 men employed, the plant consisting of a 5-
drill compressor, two boilers and a
The double compartment perpendicular shaft on the Oro Den-
oro, in Summit camp, is down 110
feet. It. was driven on the main
ledge, which is said to be 100 feet
wide. Assays run as high as 20
per cent copper, $5 to $6 in silver
and $3 to $6 in gold. The owners,
the King Mining Co., decided this
week to install a 5-drill air compressor plant as soon  as possible.
In the recent strike in the Gold
Bug, near Boundary City, in
which D. A. Holbrook is largely
interested, the assays from the
galena ores and quartz run from
$200 to $300 in gold, with some
ripper values. The quartz is literally studded with free silver. The
shaft is now down 30 feet and the
ledge is widening. There is every
appearance of this property turning out a great mine.
The new plant recently ordered
from the Jas. Cooper Mfg. Co., of
Montreal, intended for the Sunset,
in Deadwood camp, consists of a
20-drill compound compressor of
the IngersolNSerpeniit pattern, 100
h. p. hoisting engine, capable of
hoisting 1000 feet, full equipment
of boilers, pumps, drills, cages, etc.
The plant will arrive in nb>ut two
months, and will be one of the
most complete in the district.
Entitled to Timber oa Homesteads.
The Dominion government gives
notice in the last British Columbia Gazette that the provisions in
sections 14 and 15 of the regulations for the disposal of Dominion
lands within the railway belt of
British Columbia, established by

1887, and September 17, 1889, for
the reservation to the crown of the
timber on lands, homesteads in
said belt, shall be, and is, rescinded, and all persons who have received homestead entry for lands
within the railway belt prior to
date, are entitled to the timber on
their homesteads free of dues.
This provision shall not apply to
any timber heretofore granted, or
in respect of which any license Or
permit to cut has been issued to
any other person or incorporation,
nor shall it apply to timber for
