Smith Curtis, M. P. P., hat succeeded in having an "old age"
clause embodied in the amended
revenue tax law of the province.
Under this clause a man is exempt
from revenue tax when he reaches
6*0 years unless his income exceeds
$1,000 per annum.
R. W Brock, and W. W. Leach
are the surveyors who will have
charge of locating tbe boundary
line between British Columbia and
Washington and Idaho.

From what a correspondent at
Camborne says, the Ferguson, B. C.
Eagle is led to believe that the lot
of a policeman at Cnmplix, B. C, is
an unhappy one, paticularly so
when endeavoring to collect poll
tax so soon after surviving the
long winter. Duty calls, and the
policeman must do his duty.
Notices have been posted around
town warning laboring men to keep
away from the Similkameen district, as there has been a cut in
wages and endeavors are being
made to import cheap labor. Especially is this so of the Nickel
Plate mine, situated on 20-Mile
creek, Similkameen river.���Ferguson Eagle.
BOULDER CREEK POWER.
Will   Drive Sawmill and   Operate  Minim
Machinery.
Good progress is being made in
the development of the Little Boulder Creek wnterpower near IWkcut
on Kettle river.
E. W. Scothorn, the innnaver,
was in from the works Monday.
He reported that they are now constructing a flume 700 feet long.
This is only an auxiliary to it more
extensive one which will he built
when the company gets their sawmill in operation. The present
flume will have 45-foot head which
will generate an electric dynamo of
100-horse power capacity. With
this current the machinery for the
sawmill will lie driven, as well as
furnish power for a hoist which is
to be installed on the famous Kettle river mine, a mile distant.
It is expected'1 the sawmill will
be in operation early in the season.
Besides supplying the needs of the
company, the mill will be of sufficient capacity to supply a portion
of the increasing market for lumber in the Rockcut district.���Bossburg Journal.
Railroad Rumblings.
The Great Northern surveyors
are still busy running lines along
both sides of Kettle river from
Kettle Falls to Cascade. It is stated that the surveyors have already
begun to cross-section. Jim Hill
either means business, or that he
is bluffing by securing the natural
passes in order to shut out tbe other railroad company that has a
franchise nn the reservation and are
also now in the field.���Bossburg
Journal.
The Urdesii Eagle Screams.
Of a totaj number of 877 employees of the Union Colliery company at Cuml erland, B. C, 863
are Chinese and 102 Japs���more
Mongolians than white men. This
is a disgrace to the white men of
this province. If you don't, like it
why dont you select and elect men
who will exclude them. But this
is bringing the matter too near
home. What has Tom Taylor done
towards bringing about anti-Chinese legislation?
Mineral Act Amendments.
An important amendment to the
Mineral Act deals with the recording of claims in the names of free
miners by agents. Heretofore
prospectors carried about the numbers of free miner's certificates held
by friends and freely used them
for the purpose of recording locations in excess of the limitations of
the act. The amendment proposed sets ou,t that before making
any such records as agent a power
of attorney must be filed in the office of the mining recorder for the
division in which the claim is situated, and no such agent shall locate more than one claim each for
two principals on each aeparate
vein or lode.
Another amendment provides
that work done on trails to the satisfaction of the gold commissioner
or mining recorder, may be counted
on certificates of work.
Reformation In iPragreia tn Orand Porks,
Inquiries are being made of the
recorders and issuers of marriage
licenses in this city, Rossland, and
Greenwood, Midway. Republic and
other places as to when and where
certain parties in this city had obtained their marriage licences and
who married them. There are several cases where certain women ��f
the Tenderloin are living with men
to whom they claim to be married,
although there is a very decided
doubt as to most of these cases, and
wherever it can be found that these
people are not united in wedlock
prosecutions will promptly follow.
The better element of this city has
determined to clear these fallen
women out of the residence districts
and will not stop until they have
made a clean job.���Grand Forks
Gazette.
After Big flame.
The purchase of the Leyland
Steamship Line by J. Pierpont
Morgan & Co., has aroused considerable apprehension in England as
to the possibility of the United
States dominating the Atlantic
carrying trade and their fear may
not be unwarranted if the transfer
actually look place The Leyland
line is one of Great Britain's greatest shipping institutions. They
have recently purchased the West
Indian and Pacific Steamship company and moreover steamers to the
value of ��1,000,000 have recently
been added to the joint fleet. The
announcement is made that the
interests represented by Mr. Morgan are ordering ten big liners and
that they will expend ��10,000,000
in new vessels during the coming
five years. In the light of these
consideration* English papers may
well evince anxiety as to the result
of the transfer of the Leyland Line
to these American interests. It is
generally believed, however, that
the transfer is connected with the
probable passage by the United
States senate of a shipping subsidy
bill.���West Coast Trade, Spokane.
The Jig Is Up with Trent.
A man giving the name of John
Trent has been arrested in Seattle
on account of swindling operations
of considerable extent, through
which many prominent merchants
throughout the state of Washington have lost large sums. His
methods have been to purchase
goods to the extent of several hundred dollars, ostensibly to stock up
a newly purchased farm near town
but the goods would be hauled to a
neighboring town and sold at auction. The principal base of operations was in Eastern Washington.
Eastern jobbers were about as readily taken in as the local merchants
fur be is reported to have secured
large quantities ot goods at Marcus
from Chicago dealers on the
strength of lithographed stationery
representing that the purchasers
conducted a private bank besides
a general merchandising business.
The Church nf England society
of Phoenix are taking steps to erect
an edifice in which to worship.

"TOUCHED"   TO   THE   TUNE   OF   �������
A Clltien ol Orand Forks Swells the lllgottea
Oains of Ike American Investment Co.
Some of the Grand Forks hustlers
are not so wide awake as some
would think. One of them fcund
himself up against one of the
operators of the aforesaid combination, last week, whose operations
appear to be of an extremely suspicious character, and which have
been denounced in no uncertain
terms by the local paper. However, one of those smooth Minneapolis chaps appeared in our sister
town up the river and in a dignified and impressive manner announced that he had come to arrange for the establishment of a
thousand-ton smelter within her
limits if suitable arrangements
could be msde. The boomers
swalhwed the bait. They hustled
around, called a meeting of the
board of trade and appointed a
committee to select a smelter site.
The committee reported its selection
which was satisfactory. After
things had been settled between the
boomers of Grand Forks and the
oilly gentleman from Yankee land
which, as the former supposed, assured them one of the largest
smelter enterprises on this continent, the affair clothed in boastful
and high sounding sentences, waa
telegraphed in column lengths to
the Minneapolis Tribune, for which
the "eastern capitalist" was taxed
$100 by the telegraph company.To
settle this bill he drew his check:
for $500 and off-handed ly asked
one of the G. F. hustlers to endorse
the same, which request was cheerfully complied with.
One hundred of the amount went
into the coffers of the telegraph
company and four hundred went
into the pocket of the Minneapolis
investor, and the pocket, content*
and investor suddenly disappeared
without the usual parting ceremonies between great men who have
just completed deals of momentous
import. That is the story as told
us in Grand Forks the other day.
Our informant also told us that
checks of the American Mining and
Investment Company uf Minneapolis, which had been accepted in Republic to the amount of over $2,-
000, had  been dishonored  at the
bank.    ''What   fools we mortal*
be I"
Several accidents, fortunately
not resulting seriously, have happened at the Mother Lode mine
during the past week or two. Mark
Kay, carpenter, narrowly escaped
losing the tops of three of his Singers by a heavy timber rolling on
them. They were crushed but are
now healing. Another carpenter
cut the instep of one of his feel with
an adze and be is now in the Greenwood hospital. A. White was
"monkeying" with the engine that
drives the big crusher and got a
finger caught and injured. C.
Goosney also met with a mishap
to one of his thumbs.
The wild strawberry blossoms are
numerous, which indicates that an
abundant supply of that delicious
berry will be forthcoming again at
tbe appointed time in Cascade. THE   CASCADE   RECORD

The Cascade Record is
offered for sale.
The cost of taking the census of Canada will, it is said,
amount to over a quarter of a
million dollars.
Rossland now has another
daily paper, the Evening
World, formerly the Industri-
World, a weekly labor paper.
The Republic Pioneer should
he given much credit for its
zealous efforts to prevent the
citizens of that coming reservation town from committing
snicide through despondency.
Much waiting for a railroad
hath made the hearts of Republic people sick in view of
the inadequacy of their ore-reducing plants, but Republic,
like the Boundary towns, will
come out all right in the near
future.	
There has been a disposition ou the part of many of
our citizens the past few
months to be dispondent over
the local "esprit du corps,"
but Cascade, when you oome
to think of it, is suffering no
more from inactivity than all
of the Boundary and Kootenay towns. The South African difficulty, the session of
the provincial legislature and
fear of inimical legislation, together with the unsettled railway propositions, has caused
investors in a measure to
pause and await results along
these lines.   That's all.
The Midway Advance, with
it's last issue, entered upon the
fifteenth year of its existence.
We judge from this, that it is
one, at least, of the senior
publications of British Columbia. Being located at a naturally favored point and ably
conducted, it may be looked
upon as one of the established
institutions of the country.
Recently it looked over the
beam in its own eye to harshly
criticise the mote in The Record's eye, but recollecting that
its conductors are human, and
hampered with human frailties, we cheerfully exercise the
greatest of the three graces,
and bespeak for the Advance
a long and useful career.
Hon. B. C. Smith, M. L. A.
propounded in the local assembly some pertinent questions regarding the right of
the C. P. R. to cut timber promiscuously along its lines in
B.C. It is a well known fact
that all along the C. & W.
branch the company used millions of feet of lumber cut from
contiguous lands. The questions are: "Has the company
a right to do so, and does the
government receive any revenue therefrom ?" In any event
pre-emptors should be allowed
rebates for timbers so cut.
The Uovrrnment Loan Bill Paised.
The main fight was on the on the
percentage of the gross earnings to
he paid by the subsidized companies for the money granted by the
province, anil also as to the discretionary power of the government in
the matter.
Tbe V. V. & E. people contended
for a set rate of 2 per cent. An
amendment was offered hy Gilmour
of Vancouver, that the return to
the province should he 2 per cent
on the amount of the subsidy for
the first five years, and S per cent
thereafter, which was accepted by
the government. A clause, at tbe
instance of Hon. Smith Curtis to
the effect that no aliens shall be
employed on the roads subsidized,
unless it was shown tn the satisfac
tion of the lieutenant-governor-in
council that there was a scarcit y of
Canadian labor was added to tbe
bill.
A motion by Tatlow of Vancouver, that the coninet for the building of the Coant-to-Kootenay road
be not given to the Canadian Pacific was defeated by a vote of 19 to
13.
The bill passed at 1 o'clock Friday morning.
BRIEF 1/)CAL "MENTION.
Quite a frost Tuesday night.
Take a squint at the new ad. of
the English Store.
The Kettle river has become very
active the past week in its swolen
pride.
Chas. Johnson, nf the Commercial
hotel, has been in Spokane this
week.
J. P. Robertson, J. G. Baker and
others left for Gladstone Friday to
work on the roads.
Several days last week and this
S. W. Bear was engaged in Nelson,
Wash., doing sign work.
Three mining claims were surveyed in Burnt Basin last week by
Engineer K. L. Burnett.
Therrf will be preaching morning
and evening in the Cascade church
to-morrow at the usual hours.
Revs. Mr. Rae and Mr. Robb,
were at Gladstone Thursday, looking after the spiritual welfare of
that fraction of Mr. Rnbb's flock.
Mr. G. Upton, formerly associated with the English store, we understand, is now a member of the
Baden-Powell S.  A. constabulary.
The regular monthly meeting of
the Cascade Board of Trade will be
held next Monday night in the
townsite building. Several important matters will come up.
W. M. Wolverton hits received a
new supply of groceries, also.gent's
underwear and overshirts, and
those wishing the Ralston food, can
find it al ihe Pioneer store.
Rev. J. It. Robertson', pastor of
the Presbyterian church at Grand
forks, went west yesterday with
bis bride, to whom he was united
in marriage a few days ago at tbe
coast.
Rev. Mr. Rae and wife have been
made justly proud and happy by
the appearance in their family
circle of a bouncing baby boy
which is now about two weeks old
It will be seen by an advertisement in another column, Mr. 1). I).
Ferguson has retired from the firm
of Ferguson & Ritchie, and the jailer will hereafter carry on the business as sole proprietor.
There is at least one firm in town
who have complete faith in the
long-expected and prospective railway boom as one can see by reading their advertisement. It is the
wise man who takes time by the
forelock, and lavs up store during
the summer that be may nut want
during the winter.
While working on his ranch up
the river, with a team belonging tn
J. A. Bertois of the B. 0. Stables,
A. C. Scott left the horses unbridled
it is said, but still attached to the
whiffletrees, to stand a little while,
when by some means they became
frightened and ran away. Hitting
a stump one of the animals wrenched himself free of the harness,
while the other, which was seriously lamed in the run, continued his
race for town.the whiffletrees hitting
him in the heels at every jump.
The Stratton Syndicate, which is
interested in the Grand Forks town
site has secured the Cascade-Carson
railway dinner. What effect this
will have on this community and
the G. N. plans is problematical.
Mr. R. McRae sowed a nice field
of oats this week on his ranch near
Fife, and also planted a patch of
potatoes. Mr. D. Dunbar, on adjoining land, has a fine field of
fall-sown wheat, and several acres
nf timothy sown last fall. In a
few years, Sutherland creek will be
the agricultural and horticultural
section of this district.
Prof. J. C. Lannerberg, the widely known and successful eye specialist, who is practicing his profession through the Boundary and the
Kootenays, was in Cascade a few
days this week, with apartments at
the Cosmopolitan hotel. The Professor was accompanied by his amiable wife. Thursday they took the
train for Rossland, where the Professor has established headquarters.
They will return to Grand Forks
the latter part of next week.

HENDRICKSON BECOMES WEALTHY
By the Death ol His Father ud Mother He
Falls Heir to Mosey and Lasdi.
Mr. Magnus Hendrickson, formerly night bartender for Olaf
Olson in the Black Hotel, haB become possessed of 320 acres of land
and $6,440 in cash, by the death of
his parents in Cokitto, Minnesota.
His father was killed in a railway
wreck near Cnkato about three
months ago. Two months later his
mother died, .leaving their son,
Magnus llentlricksoti, heir to tbe
above named proverty. Mr. Hen*
drickson, Sr. was sheriff of Wrighi
county, Minnesota, for sixteen
years. Mr. Hendrickson will remain in Cascade for several weeks,
or until all the legal affairs of the
estate are disposed of,
Report on Weit Pork Wagon Road.
Elsewhere in this issuo we publish tho report of the engineer in
charge nf the construction of the
West Fork wagon road, to the chief
Commissioner of Lands and Works.
The report should prove of interest
as il explains how the people's good
money linn been ruthlessly squand-
1 ereil. It would appear from the report that a great amount: of the
money that should have been expended in wages, went to feed the
men who had flocked into that
country from the outside because
they heard that the government
was running a free lunch counter.
There was no need of getting men
from the outside to help build the
road. There were plenty up the
West Fork to build it. They would
have worked with an object in view
of finishing the road and not to see
how little work could be done for a
dollar, but instead of encouraging
the men who helped to open up the
country by allowing them to perform the work on the road, the
"hungries" that came along were
hired with the result that the road
was never completed, and as no appropriation for this road appears
among the estimates it would seem
that traffic to and from the West
Fork country is to continue in that
old way, namely, by trail.���Midway Advance.	
Railway Matters at Ottawa.
Ottawa, May 7.���Before the railway committee to-day the act to
incorporate Ihe Ka loops & Atlin
railway company w    i sported.
The two rival bi' incorporate
the Kettle River company
were taken up toget, John F.
McCrea of Rossland, one of the ap
plicants of the first bill addressed
the committee and stated that the
parties to the second bill had never
applied for a charter until last ses.
sion although they claimed to be
the same persons who sought the
Corbin charter to show that the
present parties applying for legis
lation had no connection with Mr.
Corbin. In other words, his op
ponents had no prior claims over
his company, who are Rossland
capitalists.
C. Macdonald of Toronto was
then heard in behalf, of his com
pany. He said the incorporators
of his company were Hon J. R.
Stratton; Chits. Kloeffer, Guelph;
T. P. Coffee, Toronto; Walter Mills,
Ingersoll and others. He said that
his company had already made
contracts for ore with mines of Republio oamp to be connected with
the Grand Forks smelter. His
company was the legitimate successors of Mr. Corbin.
Mr. Blair'stated that he had no
objections to one of the bills passing.
Mr. Stratton said tbat all his
company wanted was power to
croBB the International boundary
line at Carson. They had a charter
from the Canadain side from the
British Columbia legislature.
The committee threw out the McCrea bill and adopted the Macdonald second bill. The company
has two years to start and finish
the road. A clause was left in the
bill giving the government power
to control the rates.
Important Meeting ol Old Ironsides Company
lo Consider Question ot Consolidation.
A meeting of the Old Ironsides
mining company hits been called
for the 15th of May,at tbe main
"Mice iu Spokane to consider it plan
of consolidation with the other
companies under the control of the
Miner-Graves syndicate. It is proposed to form a new company, with
a capital of $15,000,000 in $10
shares to be known its tbe Granby
Consolidated Mining, Smelting and
Power company. It would take
over the properties of the Old Iron-
sideB, the Knob Hill and the Gruy
Eagle companies in the Boundary,
and 'would aln-orb the Granby Consolidated Mining and Smelting
company, owning the Granby
smelter at Grand Forks, and the
Grand Forks Water, Power &
Light company. The new company, which would control the most
important group of mining and
smelting interests in the Boundary,
would be under the control of Jay
P. Graves of Spokane, and H. C.
Miner of Granby, Quebec.
True BUI.
Nelson, B. C, May 7.���The
grand jury brought in a true bill
in Rex vs. James F. McGill Des
Rivieres, charged with the murder
of Harry Rowand at Summit camp

BE A GOOD BOY; GOOD BYE.
How oft in my dreams I go back
to the day
When I stood at our old wooden
gate.
And started to school in full battle
array,
Well itrnied with a  primer  and
slate.
And as the latch fell I thought myself free,
And gloried, I fear, on tbe sly,
Till I beard a kind voice that whispered to me:
Be a good boy; good bye.
"Be a good  boy; good   bye.,'   It
seems
They have followed me all IheBe
years.
They have given  a form  to  my
youthful dreams
And scattered my foolish fears.
They have stayed my feet on many
a brink,
Unseen by a blinded eye;
For just in  time I would pause
and think;
"Be a good boy; good bye."
O brother of mine, in the battle of
life,
Just starting or nearing the close.
This motto aloft, in the midst of
tbe strife,
Will conquer wherever it goes.
Mistakes you will  make, for each
of ns errs;
But, brother, just honestly try
To accomplish your best,  in whatever occurs.
���'Be it good boy; good bye."
