THE CASCADE RECORD
Published in the Interests of the Boundary and Christina Lake  Mining Districts
t
Vol. I.
CASCADE, B. C, JUNE 17, 1899.
No. 32.
HUNDREDS OF MINERS OUT
All of the Big Slocan Silver-Lead Mines
Are Silent and Deserted.
EFFECT OF NEW EIGHT-HOUR LAW
Miners are Quiet and Orderly���Both Sides are
Firm���No Serious Trouble Yet Reported
From Boundary Properties.
Last Monday the eight-hour law
went into effect, limiting the time
for employment of mineru under
ground to eight hours out of
twenty-four. In the Slocan country everything is closed as tight as
a drum, and business generally is
at a standstill. The mine owners
and mine workers both appear to
be firm. This is the season when
many Slocan mines are forced to
close down anyway, on account of
water. In Ymir several mines are
closed and one or two are working.
In Rossland the eight-hour system has been in vogue for some
time, and there is no friction. The
mines are all of the deep working
kind. At Nelson the Hall Mines
and one or two others are working
and paying the scale.
Thus far no trouble of any kind
has been reported to have taken
place at any nf the mines. There
is a rumor that the mine owners
will attempt to bring in cheap
labor from the east', but it is to be
hoped that it is only rumor.
In the Boundary country but
little, if any, friction is reported.
The men all walked out of the Sunset mine, in Deadwood camp, and
the same was looked for in Greenwood camp, but Mr. Graves has instructed his superintendent to comply with the law and to pay the established scale. In the Burnt
Basin the question has also come
up, but no cessation of work is reported.
The Chamberlain Bonded.
Last Tuesday Frank Hutchinson
bonded the Chamberlain tn T. G.
Elgie for a good sum, the exact
sum not being given. Mr. Elgie at
once went to the claim, and now
has a force of men at work on it
It is located three miles up McRae
creek, and is the property from
which Mr. Hutchinson recently obtained assays of $229 in gold
R. J. Cameron and L. Montgomery have located two free gold properties near Gladstone, called the
Canyon Creek and Gladstone. The
ore is plentifully sprinkled with
free gold, and the ledge is an immense affair.
The option on the Big Chief
group bas been extended for 80
days by Willarson and Johnson.

IN AND AROUND CASCADE
W.J. Lee, formerly of the Greenwood Miner, is reported to have
sold that paper, and left the country.
E. L. Reid, Jack Robertson and
G. T. Curtis went over the Dewdney
trail to Rossland on Wednesday on
mining business.
Frank Baily says that if he can
get sufficient local support to war*
rant it, he can secure Rossland
capital to pipe water into the city
from Castle creek.
Ira Black returned Monday
from a trip to Slocan City, Sandon
and Kaslo. He says there is still
14 feet of snow on his claims on
Gold Hill, near Lemon creek.
John Coutts, of the Scandia
hotel, Niagara, was thrown from a
wagon between Grand Forks and
Cascade, and his right leg was
broken. He is being attended at
the Scandia House in Cascade by
Dr. Gordon.
Yesterday morning at 7:30 Fred
Button, an employee of the Cascade Sawmill Co., received a bad
gash on his left thumb from coming in contact with the circular
saw. Although the bone is shattered, Dr. Gordon has hopes of saving the thumb. THE CASCADE RECORD

TRACK LAYINQ ON  THE  NEW  RAILWAY.
Steel Expected to be In or Near Gladstone
Tonight
The putting down of steel on the
new railway is proceeding steadily,
and early in the week it was understood that the track would reach
Gladstone by tonight. On account
of some small elides, however, this
has probably not been quite accomplished. The gang with the
track laying machine, including
surfacers, varies from 60 to 100
men, but of late, men have been
scarce. At the summit, near the
Divide hotel, a side track has been
put in, and a telegraph office established, This side track will be a
great convenience for the several
locomotives employed in bringing
rails and other construction material to the front. There are some
large sandbanks here also, which
are being drawn on  for surfacing
A side track is to be built at
Gladstone, and then the steel gang
���with the exception of some
bridges and trest!es, work on which
is now well in hund���will have a
straight course, as it were, to Cascade. If the weather has finally
cleared 'ip for good, the probability
of being troubled by further slides
is smalUand in the course of three
or four weeks we will hear the
whistle of the iron horse as it
comes snorting down the long
Christina lake grade.
are in operation on at least half a
dozen of the above named properties, and on one���the Mother Lode
���there is an electric light plant,
electricity being also used for tiring the blasts. Later in the current year, after the railway shall
have been opened and transportation expenses, delays and difficulties have thereby been reduced,
more machinery will he brought in,
so that an estimate of twenty to
twenty-five mining power plants
in operation by the close of 1899
should prove a conservative one.
A regular meeting of the Cascade
Taxpayer's Association will take
place next Tuesday evening.
Tuesday, the town of Colville
was visited by a fire, damage to
the extent of $20,000 being done.

II
WILL MEET ON AUGUST 3d.
Boards of Trade of Kootenay and the Boundary Districts.
Secretary H. W. C. Jackson, of
the Rossland Board of Trade has
sent notices announcing the first
joint annual meeting of the Board
of Trade of Kootenay and the
Boundary, tn be held in Rossland
on Thursday, August 30. Each
board of trade is entitled to be represented by two delegates, and it is
expected that special arrangements
will be made with the railways for
transportation of those attending.
This is the result of an effort
made some months ago to get tbe
members of the various bodies
together to consider subjects of
mutual interest. So many favorable replies have been received
that, at the last regular meeting of
the Rossland Board of Trade, it
was decided to call such a gathering. It is probable that the Cascade Taxpayers' Association will
select delegates at next Tuesday's
meeting.
MINING. PLANTS IN THE BOUNDARY.
Some Twenty Mines are now Using Power
In Mine Development.
The steady increase in number
and power of the mining plants���
hoisting, pumping and drilling-
noticeable in the district is another
evidence of aubsti ntial progress,
says the B. C. Mining Record. In
the early part of 1897 the only
steam mining plant in the district
was that of the Jewel. Later the
Old Ironsides had one installed,
and soon afterwards the B. C. followed suit. Then in 1898 the
Golden Crown, Winnipeg, Athel-
stan, Knob Hill, Brooklyn, Stem-
winder and Mother Lode were
equipped with power plants Now
the list includes the King Solomon,
City of Paris, Morrison [removed
from the Athelstan,] with the Last
Chance. Snow Shoe and others
about to add to the total Compressor plants, with machine drills,

A contract has been let to sink
a 50-foot shaft on the Copper
King, in Summit camp.
Sinking is now in ; progress on
the Golden Crown from the 150
foot to the 200-foot level.
The Knob Hill crosscut tunnel
is now in a distance of 575 feet,
giving a vertical depth of over 200
feet.
The Cuba, in Camp McKinney,
between the Cariboo No. 2 and the
Teaser, will be exploited by a
Toronto syndicate.
The Winnipeg is said to have
the deepest shaft in the Boundary
country, and from 800 to 900 feet
of drifting has been done, exposing
large bodies of shipping ore.
There is greater activity than
ever before in mining circles in the
history of the Boundary country.
Hundreds of properties are being
developed, but the demand for
miners still continues.
It is estimated that the B. C.
mine, in Summit camp, will have
4,000 or 5,000 ions of whipping ore
on the dump before the railway iB
ready to move it, in addition to
having a lot of ore blocked out
ready for stoping.
The Last Chance, in Skylark
camp, one of the oldest of Boundary creek claims, has a double-
compartment vertical shaft of 110
feet, which will be sunk another 65
feet, when crosscutting will ensue
to strike the ore bodies at the 150
level.
The Minnehaha G. M. & M. Co.,
of Camp McKinney, has bought
three more claims, tlie Iron Duke,
Sylan and Brushwood Boy, all full
sized locations. This makes seven
claims owned by this company,
the same number possessed by the
Cariboo company.
The Louisa and Sultana, in
Providence camp, have been bonded by John Mcintosh and Hugh
McEwan, of Columbia, to A. M.
Rice for $35,000. Some 40 feet of
development is the record thus far,
showing a large body of ore. Work
is to start is 30 days.
Canyon creek, one of the tributaries of Kettle river, which
empties into the main river about
35 miles above Rock creek, is rapidly coming to the front as a mineral section. The formation is a
quartzite and granite, and the
ledges are quartz, carrying high
gold and copper values.
The Golden, B. C. Era is authority for the statement that 50 men
and 100 horses will shortly leave
Golden for the placer deposits of
the Tete Jnune Cache. The find of
alluvial gold at this point is attracting widespread interest, but
some people say that the water i��
so high there this year that operations will be severely handicapped.
It is said that some remarkably
good copper properties are being
opened up in the Similkameen district, among them being the Brooklyn, carrying 15 per cent in copper
and $7 in gold, with a solid body
of ore at a depth of only 10 feet
The Key West and Lela are others
which might be mentioned, the
latter having a 60 foot ledge exposed on the surface, and assays
in copper, gold and silver as high
as $32, a short distance below the
���urlaoe.
They All Died Easily.
A crank came running into the
office of a Montana, paper and said
that a man had just swallowed a
two-fool rule and died by inches.
The editor started out at once to
j learn the particulars of the death,
and, meeting a doctor, told him
about the case. The doctor said:
"Pshaw! that's nothing; I once had
I a patient who swallowed a thermometer and died by degrees."
A couple of bystanders then chipped in. One of them said it reminded him of a fellow down in
Kansas who swallowed a pistol
and went off easy. The other one
said he had a friend who took a
quart of applejack and died in
good spirits.
The Imperial Train.
The Canadian Pacific will inaugurate its fast train service from
Montreal to Vancouver, and also a
daily service on the Crow's Nest
railway on the 18th of June The
train on the main line will cover
the distance between Montreal and
Vancouver, 2,906 miles, in 100
hours. In order that there may
be only a few stops on the part of
the through, or Imperial train,'
there will be local trains in the
more thickly populated sections
through which the main line is
constructed.

THE EIQHT HOUR SITUATION.
Just now the absorbing topic in
mining circles is tbe outcome of the
enforcement of the eight-hour law.
It will undountedly work itself out
in due course of time, but if hundreds of miners remain idle while
this is being done, business interests cannot fail to suffer to a degree.
The chief seat of trouble is in
the Slocan, and it iB a well known
fact that the mines of that district
are worked more economically
than in any other locality; consequently the owners are in reality
the better able to pay the increased
wage. In Rossland and Boundary
mines, extracting the ore is a much
more expensive process, and yet
there is but little trouble reported
from those districts.
In the Slocan the reports indicate that the men are Standing
firm, and the mine-owners, with a
few exceptions are the same.
Leaving the justice or wisdom-of
the new act aside, $3.50 is not too
much to pay a competent miner
who must work underground. It
is to be hoped that no effort will be
made to import cheap eastern labor. Such a step would complicate the situation, and remove indefinitely the time for adjustment
of the entire question.

the eight hour law.
American postal officials have
decided to increase the force of
clerks at some points in the northwest, notably at Spokane. This
should mean thut the Boundary
mail which comes to a large extent
via of Spokane for expedition, will
be more promptly handled. More
than once hundreds of Boundary
letters have, in the past, gone
through to Rossland first, because
of insufficient help to sort them on
the American trains.
C. G. Dixon, one of the most
prominent railway men in the
northwest, died last Saturday at
Spokane. At the time of his death
he was Commercial agent for the
Great Northern railway, which included the management of the Spokane Falls <& Northern. Mr.
Dixon's pushing off wus sudden.
He is succeeded by H. A. Jackson,
a gentleman well known in southern British Columbia, having been
traveling freight agent for the
Great Northern for several   vears.
Was Shot at Marcus.
Last Monday P. Foster was shot
and killed in cold blood ut MhI'cub
by "Doc." Campbell. The crime
was committed on the main street.
Campbell is a half-breed gambler,
and of a quarrelsome and unsavory
reputation. He had been drinking
the day of the murder and had
threatened to kill two or three
oitoers during the clay. Campbell
gave himself up and is new in the
county juil at Colville.

THE CASCADE RECORD
i BY THE WAYSIDE $
When the announcement was
finally made that the north fork of
Kettle river had been selected as a
smelter site by the Granby people,
near Grand Forks, the people of
Columbia congratulated themselves
that it wus behind a hill, and so
they would not be troubled by
smoke and fumes from the proposed reduction works. Of course,
the Forkites said the smoke would
not trouble them anyway. And
so apparently, they were all hap
py. But when the Porkers began
to look more carefully into the!
indemnity bond required by the
smelter people, agaii.st damages
arising from overflow of the river
from the dam needed to get power,
and from the pollution of the
stream, it is said they did nottumi
hie over each other to get a chance
to sign the bond,
In the meantime, Mr. Graved
and his associates have quietly
bought up the townsite of Carson-
four miles up the main Kettle
river���and adjoining ranches, comprising some 1600 acres, and
whether or notLthe.smelter will go
there is an open question. The
fact remains, however, that the
property referred to has actually
been purchased, and Mr. Graves
has not yet signified his intention
of going into the fruit growing business. If the smelter is built at
Carson, it will be nearer to Columbia than to Grand Forks.
The setting at large of ''Rough
Lock Nell" and "Scrap Iron Minnie"���the two women, who terrorized the little town of Russell, just
across the international border,���
is a pretty commentary on American justice. It seems they were in
the hands of Stevens county officers, while the deed was committed
in Ferry county, and so, on this
technicality, they were released.
Had it. been oh the British side,
they would probably have had free
hoard and lodging at Kamloops
by this time. The women were
openly chuckling, on the way to
Bossburg, that they were in Uncle
Sam's domain; and as the sequel
proved, well they might.
It was a good move that the
Greenwood Times made last week,
in discarding its Wednesday irsue,
and coming out as an eight-page
weekly on Saturday, brimful of
good matter. A first class weekly
is far ahead of an indifferent semi-
weekly. The Times, f��y the way,
has recently had trouble of its own
in getting in freight, and so a few
issues were printed on manilla paper. These troubles will soon be
over, however, as every day brings
the track on the new railway near-i
er the Boundary country.
Monday, J. W. Jones, the Grand
Forksvfurniture dealer, by virtue of
a lease, which he held, removed
every piece of furniture���which he
had sold���from the new hotel Columbia, in the town of the same
name, there remaining something
like $1,700 still unpaid on the
purchase price of $2,500. . It need
hardly he said that this was some
what disconcerting to the Columbia townsite people, to whom their
new hotel was like the apple of
one's eye. It is asserted that the
payment due was ready, if the
Contract on tbe part of the seller
had been lived up to. If this was
the case, it would seem that a
hardship, of a'most, aggavating
and severe character, had been inflicted on the hotel men, Messrs.
Guse & Brown. Further develop!-
ments are awaitett with interest.
The Kootenay Mining Standard,
published at Rossland, is certainly
a most creditable monthly, and its
well printed May issue bears additional testimony to that effect.
It is the best publication of its
kind ever issued in the interior of
British Columbia. The publishers
are getting up a special July ant
nual, which will he fully illustrated, and devoted to Kootenay and
Yale districts, having a 10,000 edition. It will also be published iri
London, England, the British Columbia Review, of that money cent
ter, taking the matter in hand;
8uch a publication if rightly con-i
ducted, can be made to be of
untold benefit to the mining districts of the province.
Last Wednesday, the hotel men
of Rossland riding gathered at Cascade to appear before the board of
license commissioners and secure
a renewal of their licenses. Quite
a number did not have their papers
in order, and another session of
the board will be held just before
the end of the month to pass upon
these. The new license act was not
thoroughly understood, and some
were not slow to denounce that
part of the result of the late legislature's; labors. The decisions of
the commissioners, E. R. Jacobs,
of Midway, and F. W. Coleman, of
Trail, were generally acknowledged
to be fair and impartial.

THE CASCADE RECORD
WHAT ARE MINERS' WAOES?
Rate Paid tn Rossland and Several American
States.
It is a frequent question and
very often goes unanswered���What
are Miners' wages? The Rossland
Miner the other day put in tabulated form the scale of wages by the
mines of that camp. The schedule
which follows, is that scale adopted
by the large mines of the camp
per shift, the men going to and
coming from their work on their
own time.
Per shift:
Foremen or bosses, day .1600
Foremen or bosses, night 450
Engineers  850
Firemen 800
BlacksmlthB 400
Blacksmith's helper 800
Carpenters , 850
Per shift, 8 hours:
Miners (hand drill)  ..800
Miners (hand drill) in shafts 850
Miners (machine drills) i860
Miners (machine drills) in shafts 4 00
Pumpmen, tlmbermen 8.00 to 8 50
Carmen, shovehrs and nippers      8 50
Per shift, 10hours:
Roustabouts (surface) 2 50
Ore sorters 860
We have been informed by a
practical miner who is conversant
with the conditions obtaining in
the Western mining districts that
the following are the wages paid in
districts mentioned for miners, including machine drill men.
Montana, $3.50 for 10 hours.
Southern Idaho, $3 to $3.50 for
10 hours.
Colorado, $3 to $3.50 for 10 hours.
Under the new eight-hour regulations there $3 for eight hours.
Utah, $2.50 for eight hours.
California, $2.50 for 9 snd 10
hours.
Nevada, $3 50 for 10 hours.
In the iron and coal mines of
Pennsylvania, Michigan, West Virginia, and Wisconsin the wages
are from $1 to $2 for 10 hours.���
Nelson Miner.
DO NOT WANT A CANADIAN MINT.
Banker's Association of the Dominion Oive
the Reason.
At a recent session of the Banker's Association of Canada the
members resoluted against the
establishment of a mint, which
would probably have been located
in British Columbia. Here they
are:
"1. Because the operating of a
mint will result in loss either to
the miner or the government, according as the one or the other is
made to bear the expense of the
coinage.
"2. Because a better market for
gold bullion is provided by the
banks than can be supplied by a
mint
"3. Because the intrinsic value
of the metal is not enhanced by its
conversion into coin, bullion being
preferable for the purpose of international exchange and settlement.
"4. Because experience has
demonstrated that paper is preferable to gold coin as a circulating
medium, and bullion minted in
Canada will not be retained in the
country.
"5. Because the coinage of gold
would introduce an element of uncertainty and disturbance in the
system prejudicial to the commercial and industrial interests of the
countrv."
