Record Representative' Visits, the Great
Elmore Property,
They Have Splendid Surface Showings, Steadily
Improving With Depth - Located Close to
A Record man'enjoyed ail interesting iwo day*' trip to Shamrock
mountain, about;.rive; miles from
Cascade, lust week iu company
with S. R. Reid, one of our local
prospectors. Old Shamrock towering above the east shore of Christina lake, rests in comparative
quietness now, but circumstances
are combining to break the monot-
ony, and it is quite safe to predict
that during the years to come her
slopes will be the scene of much
Shamrock mountain is known to
be a veritable mass of mineral, and
although it is l>w grade on the surface, the work so far accomplished
proves that its values increase very
materially with depth. The
whole mountain has been staked
off into mineral claims, many of
which have already jessed into
the hands of capitalists. This work
has been accomplished in a short
two years. Mining men know the
ore is there, but they want transportation before they go ahead
pilintz it on the dumps. Now that
transportation is assured and first
class and convenient smelting facilities as well, it is certain that the
prospects for,: Baker Creek and
Shamrock mountain claim owners
are beginning to take on a roseate
We took a glimpse at Kelly's
claims on Southerland creek, and
confiscated a few samples of rich
copper from ore of these, the Dyke-
head, and reached the Elmore
cabin at the top of the mountain
about noon. That afternoon we
went out to see the Shamrock and
Thistle, owned by John Y. Mc-
Kane, R. Dalby Morkill, C. S.
Wallis and D. C. Beach, and returned by way of the Broken Hill,
Alphoii8e ind Beach, The latter
claim has a 25 foot timbered shaft
and a snug pile of ore on the dump.
The Thistle has yielded, with a
single assessment, some of the highest grade copper ore ever seen in
British Columbia. The Alphonse,
owned by Al. Peon,'of Rflsisland,
has a dead nearly ed.uai ir�� the
Elmore in sizp. If has been cross
cm norland thpre for several hundred feet and shows about 25 feet
of fine grained iron ore., carrying
copper pyrile/8.1    ?'
From the top of the mountain
we could see clear down the west
slope to Christina lake, on which
D. C. Beach's galaxy of claims are
located.     Of these   the   Victoria,
Iron Mountain arid Cracker Jack
are.perhaps, the besi known. We
saw the results of the prospectors'
efforts on a dozen claims at least
during the afternoon, and that
evening oyer our bannocks and
coffee talked about those we were
yet to visit, including the Hum-
bolt, Texas, Maid of the Mist, Mary
Ann, Atlas, Prudential, Sultana,
Lady Franklin, Yellowstone, Cor-
rydon, etc.
In the morning we sallied forth
to inspect the workings on the
mighty Elmore, the pride of the
mountain. The Elmore, on an air
line, would be.only about two miles
from the lake, but its elevation is
5455 feet higher, or about 3900 feet
above the level of the sea. The
Elmore and its associate claim, the
Corydon, were located in April,
1897, and are now owned by the
Belcher Consolidated Gold Mining
Company, Ltd., of which Frank
Hutchinson is president, and Smith
Curtis, of Rossland, is treasurer
and manager.
On the Elmore a body of magnetic iron and copper pyrites crops
up at the surface for "an average
width of some 80 feet, and can be
traced for almost the entire length,
with an N. E. by S. W. strike
through the claim. This lead has
been opened on different places by
shafts and cuts. The ore is strongly
oxidized near the surface. After
reaching a depth of several feet,
the ore, containing the same minerals, including spar, gets its original form of pure sulphides, copper
pryite��, and values increasing.
Shaft No. 2 in the same body hii>
been sunk 35 feet and a crosscut of
20 feet made. An open cut had
been run 25 feet easterly and from
10 to 12 feet deep. A sample from
the bottom of this shaft gave a
total value of $17.84. No. 4 shaft
is down 10 feet and carries good
copper values. The lead has been
opened to an extent of some 500
The large outcrops of mineralized
and eruptive rock on the Elmore
have attracted much attention since
its discovery. The small amount
of work done on it, considering its
extent, partly hindered at first by
difficulty in getting supplies to it,
already shows it to be a mine of increasing values with increased
depth. No doubt exploration in
depth in this mineralized zone will
produce bodies of better grade ore.
The ore so far found on Shamrock mountain and Baker creek is
suitable for smelting and very important bodies are likely to be
found to underlie the surface showings. The work done around Christina Lake has heen up to the present most encouraging. New ore
bodies have been uncovered. The
arrival of the railroad, the grading
of which is now nearly completed,
will naturally give an impetus to
this newly discovered country,
whose resources have been up to
date closed against the outside for
want of transportation.
Fred Mitchell, of Brooklyn, was
jn Cascade Thursday en route to
the upper Boundary country.
Mining Engineer Inkster, of Rossland,
Was Here,
Active Development Work Has Already Commenced on the Great Western, in Sight of
i this City
Our neighbors across the line,
along with British Columbia residents, will reap the benefits of Cascade's new smelter. Now that this
great industry is assured, interest
in reservation properties, near here,
continues to increase, Mr. J. H.
Inkster, M. E.. of Rossland, was in
town this week, inspecting one of
these properties. To a Record representative Mr. Inkster said:
'���Last fall a group of claims situated on the American side, about
five mile from here, was submitted
to me for examination. They were
said to possess unusual merit as
quartz claims. Details in regard
to these claims were furnished by
the owners for verification before
the snow fall, but owing to my
absence in other mining camps I
was unable to visit them until the
present lime. Although we found
the snow deep on the slopes, the
apex of the mountain upon which
the claims were located was almost
bare, and by shovelling out the
different crosscuts I was enabled
to sample the ledges and obtain a
fair idea of the property. It far
exceeded my expectations. Judging
by what I have seen, I am very
well satisfied with the outlook and
I think very likely will complete
the purchase immediately."
" As it is a milling proposition,
we have got to have power, and as
there are no mill sites on the. property, we must look elsewhere. In
fact, we are relying on Cascade's
water power, now being developed,
and I might add that we are only
one of several outfits I know of
already, that have the same object
in view."
Mr. Inkptpr declined to give the
particulars in connection with the
deal as regards location, price, assays, etc., until such time as the
fullest details of the transfer are
arranged, which will doubtless be
in the near future.
Active Work Begun
The railway graders have made
a fine showing on Kenneth P.
Matbeson's claim, the Great Western, only a half mile due east of
this city, the other side of the river.
Last Wednesday Mr. Matheson began active work on the property,
which has a fine showing. "The
oxidized iron cap assays $19.58 in
copper and $6.00 in gold, the ledge
being 12 feet wide. The chance is
excellent for the Great Western to
turn out.a big mine.
Greenwood business men are
agitating for a custom house.

Mr. Bowen, who has a ranch just
across the line, near where Monte
Carlo had a brief existence, has
been advised by those close to
D. C. Corbin, to hold on to his
property, as the probability of the-
Kettle River Valley roact going
through this year is growing stronger each month. He is just across
the river from where the smelter
will be located. It is also said that
some prominent engineers have
also been to see Mr. Bowen lately,
and it is well known that engineers
do not travel around the country,
simply for amusement. 2

THE   CASCADE   REC0R1), JANUARY 28,  1899
Amounts to $10,000 add Was Secured by S. P. Quinlivan.
S. P. Quinlivan, of this city, was
awarded the contract yesterday by
Superintendent Anderson, for the
rock work on the new clam being
constructed at the falls by the Dominion Mining, Development &
Agency Co., Ltd. There were ten
or a dozen bidders for the work,
which will require the removal.��f
some 7,000 cubic yards of rock, besides several thousand yards of
earth- -altogether about 10,000 yds.
Monday morning Mr. Quinlivan
will start the work with.a fore? of
25 men and six or eight teams, who
will be kept busy for at least two
months. The contract amounts
to about $10,000. The contract
for the flume and tunnel, to be
12x12x400 feet, amounting to something like $45,000, will probably
not be awarded till, the present contract is completed."   l
This last week substantial progress has ; been apparent on the
work of the dam. The firi-t layers
of timbers have been put down, and
the dam is six or seven feet high.
Fifteen men are under Foreman
Simmons, and from now on the
force will probably be increased as
fast as room can be found for the
men to work.
With the Railway takers
Contractor Arthur Murdock was
in town yesterday.
A. A. Sutherland, of Niagara has
secured a sub-contract for 5,000.
Pat Welch now has oyer 100
men in camp at TiIIniiin's ranch,
fiear Greenwood.
The contractors l>ave notified the
subs that after Feb. let headquarters will be at Cascade.       ��
Twohy Bros, have cleaned up
their work near Brooklyn and left
the line of construction.
Contractor. Burns, of Burn &
Jordan, returned yectertlay from a
several weeks trip to Spokane.
Winters, Parsons & Boomer now
have but one camp, located at Porcupine creek, 10 miles from Brooklyn.
Dr. G. M. Foster, now in charge
of contractors' hospital at Cascade,
expects to hare charge of the new
hospital now building at Greenwood.
The Brooklyn hospital has only
about a dozen patients now. That
at Cascade has about 27. The new
hospital at Greenwood will probably not be ready for occupancy
for a month yet. ,
Jack Stewart, superintendent of
construction,. suRtaiiined an accident
last Saturday, w,hjle on the way to
Grand Forks, that has laid him up
ever since. His horse slipped on
the ice and fell on Mr. Stewart's
right ankle, severely spraining it.
He returned to Cascade, and the
injury is much better, hut still very
gainful. He left this morning for
irooklyn in tare of Pat Welch.
One of the air compressors at the
long tunnel, near Brooklyn is at
last working. McLean Bros, have1
had much trouble on this work
from freezing pipefy^iMeanwhile,
the work of drilling has continued
by hand, and the bore is now in
nearly a couple of hundred feet at
the east end. The new patent
steam scraper, attempted to be operated by this same firm on their
second contract near Gladstone,
has thus far not been a success.

There are still about 400'"men
employed in the vicinity of Gladstone, and the work promises to
continue for three or four riionths.
A large mountain goat was
killed recently on the Big Chief
mountain, by an Italian laborer.
The goat when shot rolled over a
cliff, falling200 feet, and completely
smashed his fine horns.
Gladstonites are looking forward
with pleasant anticipations to the
inauguration of the proposed triweekly mail service between Brooklyn and Cascade City. This route
will save a delay of three or four
days in the portion of our mail
that comes via Penticton. Very
tiften consignments of goods reach
Gladstone ahead of. the invoices
which come by mail.
���It is understood that a charter to
construct n narrow gauge railway
from Rossland to Gladstone, via
Norway mountain, has or is, about
to be applied for. A good grade
can be obtained for this road and
it would open a rich mineral belt
besides giving Rossland a short
direct route to the Boundary country. .A,���$?ntleman who is in a
position to speak on the matter,
says that the road will undoubtedly
be built during the coming season,
and operated with the rolling stock
now being used between Rossland
and Trail.
Almost as Past as Walking
The Record received the Vancouver Daily Province of Jan. 17lh,
18th and 19th on the 24th inst.,
via the lightning mail route as now
arranged. Rossland, Nelson and
other near-by papers reach Cas
cade from two to four days late, as
a rule. One can travel from Van-
cover to Cascade in 33 hours, and
from Rossland to Cascade in 12
hours. If Inspectors Dorman or
McLeod can explain why this is
thus, they will oblige hundreds of
people in the Boundary district.
Such relics of medievalism should
he relegated to the past, and bungling postal clerks or officials, responsible for this antiquated sort of
service, should receive such a jacking up as will promptly improve
the service.
Over 200,000 feet of bridge tim-
pbers have been cu,t and delivered at
Tn'e site of the long railway bridge
over Kettle river, close to town. It
is expected that the bridge crew
will be on the ground and at work
in the course of a couple of weeks.
It will require 15 or 20 men for a
considerable time.
Branches of the Imperial Bank
of Canada have been established in
Hamilton and Listowel, Ontario.

THE CASCADE RECORD     "This act shall not he construed
to prevent any persons not citizens
of the United States from acquiring or holding lots or parcels of
lands in any incorporated city,
town or village, or to any mine or
mineral claim, or in any of the
territories of the United States.
���Fifty Fourth Congress, Sens. 11,
Chapter 363."
The writer then states in support
of his contention that inquiries
have shown that British subjects
have located and now hold mineral
claims at Republic, Wash., and
that notwithstanding the popular
- ��� belief to the contrary, all through
SATURDAY, JANUARY 28,1899, the mining districts, "every miner
has equal rights without respect to
his nationality."
The following along the same
line, is said to be Article II, Section
33, of the constitution of the
neighboring state of Washington :
"The ownership of lands by
aliens, other than those who in
good faith have become citizens of
the United States, is prohibited in
this state, except when acquired.
.... Provided that the provisions of this section shall not
apply to lands containing valuable
deposits of minerals, metals, iron,
coal or fire-clay, and the necessary
land for mills and machinery to be
used in the development thereof
and the mi nufacture of the products therefrom."
If these are the facts, it presents
an entirely different aspect to the
care. The argument of the vast
majority falls to the ground. There
is no doubt, however, that British
Columbia has the inherent right to
enact her own laws, subject to
annulment by the Dominion parliament. Whether it is the part of
wisdom to pass acts that apparently
benefit only the merchants of the
coast, to the manifest detriment of
the rest of the province, is a question yet to be determined by experience.
The Greenwood Times s
right out in regard to the poor mail
service given business men in that
part of the country. It charitably
suggests that perhaps some of the
irregularity is " caused by the
difficulty in crossing the Columbia
on account of ice."
But no such reason exists, or has
existed, this season, for the mails
thus far have always gotten
through, ice or no ice. It is merely
because the entire service of the
Boundary district has been shamefully neglected in the past by the
post office department. Whether
an improvement will be made, as
promised by Mr. Dorman when in
Cascade last week, remains to be
seen. Mr. Dorman requests that
complaints he sent to him direct,
and this week the Record has sent
an installment of envelopes showing inexcusable delays in transmission, to ascertain whether, as
the Greenwood Times states, any
attention will be paid to them.
Nelson and Rossland business
people are also clamoring for re-
���forms in the mail service. In fact,
���all over southern British Columbia
the same general complaint is
heard. British Columbia contributes vastly more than any other
province, prorata, to the Dominion
revenues. Its citizens are entitled
to the best mail service that is obtainable. Nothing short of that
will satisfy them.

In a recent issue of the Nelson
Miner appears a communication
from the manager of one of the
largest American exploration companies now operating in this province, in regard to the alien placer
act recently passed by the British
Columbia legislature. The article
goes into detail into the fact that it
is not retaliatory legislation, for
the reason that neither the statutes
of the United States nor those of
the state of Washington prohibit
the acquiring or holding of mineral
claims by aliens. The writer then
quotes the following amendment to
the alien act of the United States,
passed in March, 1897, before the
riches of the far north land were
uncovered, and which he says is
the law of the land now :
Both Sandon and Kaslo are now
without their Cumiques, where
ancient lassies dispensed liquid refreshments at Dawson City prices.
But Rossland is to have a similar
institution, which will probably
make up for the loss of the others.
Not a few articles appear in the
coast papers from this section that
meet with the approval of the Record, especially in the Victoria Times.
If they did not we would not have
written them, and of course they
could not have been stolen verbatim et literatim.
Mr. Hewitt Bostock, M. P. for
Yale-Cariboo-Kootenay, has been
making some speeches to his constituents on the main line. Just
now every resident of this section
is interested in getting a reasonable
mail service, and if Mr. Bostock
will for a short time concentrate
his efforts in this direction, he will
deserve and receive the gratitude of
many a Tory as well as a Grit, in
this part of his constituency.

THE  CASCADE   RECORD,lANtiAliY 28, 1899
A few weeks ago the Record criticised the C. P. R. for accepting
freight at Vancouver, destined for
Cascade, when the agents knew
such shipments would not get
further than Penticton, as a rule,
hut would eventually lie returned
to the consignors. The representative of a Vancouver wholesale
house threw some light on the subject later, stating that on account
of the exaspen ting delay in Shipping via the Great Northern, there
was but little more satisfaction to
hie obtained in using that line. To
this Mr. C.G. Dixon, general freight
and passenger agent of the Spokane
Fails & Northern at Spokane, and
formerly agent of the Great Northern, takes exception in the following letter :
Spokam. Wash. Jan. l��th, I8W.
Cascade City, B. C.
.Gentlemen:���I notice In your issue of January
14th, an article on the subject of statements Into
your district by Way of Vancouver and the Great
Northern Railway. Inasmuch as the Great
Northern Ry is a connection of this company,
via Spokane, I am obliged to take exceptions to
some of the statements mentioned. While it
might have been true In the past that some delays
have occurred on shipments from Vancouver via
the above route, it is an exaggeration to state that
four or five weeks time should be figured upon in
���hipping goods from the coast via American
lines. Hy attention having been called to some
delays I took measures to obviate the trouble and
oan assert that better service is now given. How-
aver, every shipper Is enUtled to experiment on
the best methods to handle his goods and this
company, with its American connection*, is willing to abide by practical experience at against
competitive routes.
Taking shipments into Cascade City via Bossburg. with, its wagon haul of less than thirty
mile*, and comparing this route with that via
Penticton, with transfer at Okanagan Landing
from rail line to steamer, and agaiu at Penticton
for a wagon haul of 120 miles, with transfers by
teams and the uncertainty of weather conditions.
I would consider comparisons to be in our favor
Again considering the Brooklyn route as a possible one, I presume, every one is familiar with
the present method of handling business via
Revelstoke and Arrowhead. 'J be Canadian Pa-.
elBc boats have been withdrawn from service below Nakusp, therefore, shipments are routed from
Revelstoke in the following manner: From
Arrowhead via boat to Nakusp, from Nakusp to
Roaebery via rail; from Rosebery to Slocan City
by but; from Slocan City to Robsom via rail,
and tranferred at latter point to boat agaiu for
Brooklyn, thence via wagon road to Cascade City.
Allow me to repeat a portion of the article referred to. "You oan fool part of the people all
the time and all the people part of the time, but
you cannot fool all the people all the time.''
How long will Boundary Creek merchants consent to act as oats-paws to pull Canadian Pad lie
chestnuts out ol the furnace of trouble* outlined above?     Yours truly, C. G. Dixon,
G.F. AP.A,
In the first place, the Record was
not wrong, as Mr. Dixon intimates,
in the statement that our merchants must figure on four or five
weeks for shipments from the coast
to this district. A number of them
in Cascade alone, since the receipt
of the above letter, have testified to
this fact. However, Mr. Dixon
states that better service is now
given, which is certainly a move in
the right direction, and is to be
Then Mr. Dixon's deductions as
to the routing of the freight by the
C. P. R. are a lityle out of joint. It
is not intended to haul the freight
around by Slocan lake to Robson
and then to Brooklyn. For some
days past steamers have been breaking the ice to get direct to Brooklyn from Arrowhead, which has
now , been accomplished, and a
steamer is making regular trips.
As a matter of fact, if that route is
frozen solid every other week, it
will still be as expeditious as that
by the Great Northern has been.
As for the  Penticton   route, the

Record has shown its impracticability over and over again.
As to the "catspaw" business,
referred to, if Mr. Dixon's lines can
���and he says they can and will���
give better service than any other,
they will get the preference without doubt. It is not a matter of
sentiment with our business men,
and the fact that they ship, even
under adverse circumstances, by
his lines is proof of the statement
here made. There are no strings
on the Record, nut it does desire
decent service whether for freight
or mail, and will never let up till
it is obtained.
Now a case in point. On Dec.
24th last a shipment of paper was
sent to the Record from St. Paul.
On December 23d another was sent
from Spokane. The last of these
shipments were received at the
Record office on January 25th���
over a month for each in transmission. The expense bills showed
that they were received at Bossburg in good time, but through the
needless negligence of the freight
agent there, who repeatedly stated
to those sent for them, that they
had not arrived, the goods could
not be gotten out by the freighters.
Mr. Dixon might as well have the
goods in Butte, or Spokane or
Seattle, as in Bossburg, if the agent
at the latter place is so negligent.
This is not an isolated case, either.
Dozens of them can be cited and
even now there are goods in Bossburg for our citizens that have been
sent for repeatedly for weeks. If
Mr. Dixon will inaugurate some
greatly needed reforms iu the Boss*
burg office, he will do more than is
possible otherwise to facilitate the
delivery of goods into the Boundary country.

Kaskade. Jan. 24, 1899.
Peak Moike���Here Oi am now.
Away up in the mountains ov
British Kolumby. Meself wus
tell in' ye about goin' to the Filli-
pine islands, but Oi'm askeert the
war Ml be after bra kin out agin, an
then where ud Oi be ? Dead in it,
eh ? Moind, Oi don't want ye to
think that Oi'm afraiil to foight,
but just think, if meself wus to git
kilt, how all the poor dear girls
would cry their eyes out. ���������     '
Well, Moike, what I want to be
after tellin' ye is, what brought me
to Kaskade, what koind ov a place
it is an' what Oi'm doin' here. As
Oi'm here now, Oi suppose ye know
Oi left the last plase Oi wus in. To
get here wus an awful job, Oi can
tell ye. Shure. wan has to drive
thoirty moiles on a stage in wan
stretch before the electrick loights
ov Kaskade loom into view���but
when ye get out ov the consarned
consarn ye feel loike takin' two or
three stretches. But,'Moike, oiiet
ye get here its a purty place ye do
be seein' entoirely. Kaskade is, Oi
deleave, the purtiesl place on earth,
barrin' the Lakes ov Killarney.
Meself doesn't know what heaven
is loike, as Oi wus never there, but
if it bates Kaskade Oi'm wilfin' to
go any toime. We have purty
cenery, purty buildings, purty girls
an' we're all doin' a purty good
hush ess. So, ye see, it aint such a
bad place, at all, at all.
Meself an' Julius Black were
stand in' on the korner ov Chicago
an' New York streets, lookin' down
Woodbine A veil U the other day,
when who should come along but
our owld frend James O'Driskoll,
that used to be deliverin' such eloquent speaches for the good ov the
Irish caws. Ye remimher, Moike,
'twas this same O'Driskoll that
come purty near freein' Ireland
some foive years ago. " The top>ov
the mornin' to ye, gentlemen."!
says Jim, says he, " an' how are ye
anyhow ?" Ov course we shook
hands, an'then just to show that
he wus all right Julius asked us iu
to have a smoile. Jim had a grin
on his face loike a basket ov chips,
an' says Julius, says he, " what
makes ye feal ai good this foine
mornin' ? Some ov yer rich rela-
shuns died ?" " No," says Jim,
says he, "Now, if ye'll just kape
quiet O'll be after tellin' ye what
it's all about. As metelf wussittin'
down in the Grand Central a little
whoile ago talkin' to Mr. Flood, a
feller come? Up an "ffered me a big
job at the smelter." To be shure
Julius an' meself were rale glad to
hear ov his good luck, thinkin'
that he wus goin' to be a walkin'
boss or somethin' big, but imagin
our surproise when meself asked
him what departmint he wus goin'
to have charge ov. " Oh," says Jim,
pays he, " shure an' Oi'm goin' to
push a wheelbarrow." That wus
too much for us. The idea ov such
a foine man as Jim shovin' a
wheelbarrow at the smelter. Oi'd
a grate deal rather have him work-
in' wid meself up at the dam.
Well, Moike, Oi have a lady
frend ov the female sex and gentler
persuasions that promised to go to
a dance wid meself tonoigh.t, so Oi
will have to close for this toime.

Last fall Pete Johnson, Charlie
Willarson's partner in mining,
took a trip over through the Similkameen, with Boh Cramer and
Billy Morrison. The hoys were all
lucky and succeeded in making
several locations. Mr. Johnson
brought back a lot of rock from
his locations, but didn't bother
getting any assays until a few days
ago. The returns were very satisfactory. From the Mogul the surface rock gave $52 in gold and copper, the latter being in predominance. From the Ada B., in which
Boh Cramer is also interested, the
surface value was $27. The assays
were satisfactory from all their
locations and they are naturally
feeling jubilant.

THE   CASCADE   RECOJtl),  JANUARY  28,  1899
Petitioned Mr. Hillock
A petition from the Cascade Taxpayers' Association was forwarded
last week by secretary P. J. O'Reilly
to Hon. Wm. Mulock, postmaster
general, at Ottawa, for the improvement of the present mail service to
the Boundary in general, and to
Cascade in particular.
One suggestion urged upon the
department to accomplish this is
the establishment of a regular mail
route between Brooklyn and Cascade. There can be no doubt but
that this would facilitate the transmission of mail matters both from
eastern Canada and western British
Columbia. This mail now come,
via Penticton, requiring from two
to five days more than by the proposed route. A number of reforms
were promised by Inspector Dorman when he visited Cascade a few
days ago.
Copies of the petition were also
sent to Mr. Dorman and to Hewitt
Bostock, our member in parliament. It is altogether probable
that one immediate result will be
the letting of a contract over the
Brooklyn-Cascade route, with new
offices established at Gladstone and
McRae's landing.
Cascade a Trading Centre
The following is taken from a
recent issue of the British Columbia Weekly, published at Vancouver:
"Perhaps the most important
single item of commercial provincial intelligence this week concerns
the prop'osed establishment this
year of a large ore smelter at Cascade City. This will, it is stated,
have a capacity of 1,000 tm.s, and
will be run and worked like the
smaller smelter at Trail iu connection with the Canadian Pacific
Railway Company, which will
grant cheap freight rates iu conjunction with moderate smelter
charges. It is stated to be intended to add a refinery at a later period. Meanwhile the smelter site
is chosen on a suitable site and its
building will commence in the
spring. The cost will exceed $400,-
It is stated that everything favors
the success of the enterprise, as
there are local supplies of day���
for brickmaking and other purposes���and lime fur fluxing, whilst
the C. P. R. can easily bring in the
best of coal and coke over its system from the East Kootenay mines
and coking ovens at Fernie. Several hundred men will be employed
at the smelter, and its operations
will add an enormous impetus to
copper gold mining in the Boundary country, causing also the development of several big trading
centres, of which Greenwood will
certainly be one and Cascade City
Republic's New Weekly
John R. Reavis has gotten out
the first number of the Republic
Miner, and it is indeed a ivost
creditable issue. Mr. Reavis pays
a compliment to the Cascade Record
by following this paper's general
style and make up. He uses good
paper, good ink and new type, and
will undoubtedly make a place for
his journal, notwithstanding the
fact that there are already two
weekly papers in Republic.
