CASCADE, B. C, OCTOBER 14, 1899.
No. 49.
Was Formally Made at Johannesburg
Kruger'i men Invading at Five Different Points
���Preparing a Canadian Regiment, 1,000
Johannesburg, Oct. 12���War was
declared yesterday. The formal
declaration occurred at 10 o'clock
this morning.
Cut the Wires.
Vryburg, Cape Colony, Oct. 12.���
Afternoon.���A body of Boers have
cut the border fence, advanced to
the railway and cut the telegraph
wires. Two thousand Boers are
now occupying the railroad line.
Boers Shoot First.
Cape Town, Oct. 13, 9.45 a.m.���
A dispatch from Vryburg says that
an armored train has been destroyed.
It is feared that much loss of life
will result. The news has been
unofficially confirmed.
Boers Will Invade at Five Point*.
London, October 13.���When the
cabinet meets at noon today it is
evident the Boer advance will be
in full swing. Judging from present appearances the Boers are preparing for a simultaneous invasion
at five separate points, Laings
Neck, Kimberly, Vryburg, Mafe-
king and Lokasti. Therefore it is
almost impossible to guess the plan
of campaign.
A dispatch from Durban dated
Thursday morning at 8 o'clock announces that the Boers seized Al-
hertina station and demanded the
keys, which were delivered by the
station master, who reached Lady-
smith on a trolley car. The excitement at' Ladysmith is increasing
and the troops are ready lo act at a
moment's notice. It is now definitely known that the British government sent no final proposals to
Pretoria. The Transvaal's ultimatum forestalled that intention.
The evacuated district between
Chnrlestown and Newcastle, Natal,
has an area of 250,000 square miles,
and consists chiefly of hilly moor-
binds, sparsely populated. The
Jacobsdale command of the Free
State Boers is marching on the
Modder river.
Canadian Regiment Will do.
Toronto, Oct. 12.���The Globe,
the official mouthpiece of the dominion government, in its Ottawa
correspondence today states that
the imperial government has
r-abled the dominion authorities
'uking how many men can be furnished by Canada for service in
South Africa at once. A reply
will be sent stating that 1,000 men,
the pick of the Canadian troops,
��i��n be put on board a transport
within 10 days or two weeks.
It is said that the transport has
already been engaged to sail from
Montreal on the 23rd and 24th
instant. A contract was given
yesterday to a big clothing firm in
Hamilton,Ont., by the government
for 1,000 uniforms. Cavalry, infantry and mounted infantry are
to be sent forward.
The Canadian military authorities have been anticipating for
some time a request for troops from
Great Britain, and now they announce that everything is in readiness for the mobilization of the
Canadian contingent. The greatest
enthusiasm is manifested throughout Canada and a second contingent of 1,000 men will undoubtedly
be offered in a few weeks.
The imperial government officials
state that Conada will be asked to
land the troops at Natal or Delagoa
Bay, and that all expenses are to
be paid by the home government.
It is probable, however, that Canada will ask to be allowed to bear
the entire expense of equipping,
transporting and looking after the
There is Still a Scarcity in and Around
Demand ia this Vicinity Much Greater than
the Supply���Forces In Mines Being Increased.
Any man who is willing to work
can get employment in Cascade.
Never in the history of the town
has it been so difficult to get men.
8. F. Quinlivan, who has the contract for all the rock work thus far
let in connection with the water
power improvement, could easily
use 40 or 50 more rock men and
laborers, as next Monday he will
resume getting out rock for the
cribbing for the dam. The railway
contractors find it difficult to get
men enough to keep up the full
complement at the Bull Dog Tunnel, and in fact any kind of labor
is not easy to procure, so great is
the demand. There will he no
need for any one to go hungry in
Cascade this winter.
In addition to the above demands
more men are constantly being put
on in the surrounding mines, while
of course, with that roving instinct
so peculiar with followers of railway work, as the various contracts
have been comepleted, large numbers have gone to other parts for a
similar kind of employment.
No Yacht Race Yet.
The long-looked-for yacht race
at New York between the Shamrock and Columbia for the America cup has not yet taken place.
Since the 3rd inst. efforts have
been made every day or two to
race but each time either lack of
wind or prevalence of fog has prevented it. Great interest everywhere is being taken in this international event. Every night the
question is " Which yacht has
won to-day ?"
If MoreMotive Power Can he Got, Will
Hare it.
750-Foot Trestle Now In Shape to Cross-
Notes From all Along the new Railway
If a locomotive can be secured
next week a daily passenger service
each way into the Boundary is
probable. Motive power has been
short ever since the first rail was
laid and now there are but seven
engines on the line, of which Mann,
Foley Bros. & Larson have three
in constant use on tracklaying and
construction. The strike of machinists in C. P. R. shops all along
the line is felt at the shops at Trail
and consequently the locomotives
are in had shape.
It is certain that a daily service
will be put on at the earliest possible moment, as Chief Engineer Tye
realizes how unsatisfactory the service is at present.
One improvement will be made
next week, which will do away
with the tedious wait at Robson.
Train No. 2 will hereafter leave
Grand Forks at 12:12 noon, instead
of 7 a. m., making close connections for Nelson and Rossland.
Rumbles From the Ralls.
Only enough steel is on hand to
reach greenwood as yet.
But 885 feet now remain between
the heads in the Bull Dog Tunnel.
Jack Stewart went to the rail
head Wednesday, which was then
at the 750-foot trestle, scarcely a
mile from Greenwood.
Every day this week the train
has been late. Yesterday it took
nearly 12 hours to come the 71
miles to Grand Forks, or about six
miles per hour on an average.
E. R. Redpath, formerly of West
Robson, has assumed his duties of
C. P. R. agent at Greenwood. O.
W. Day, operator at Robson, has
been appointed agent at Midway.
Tomorrow night, or Monday
morning, it is expected that the
rails will he laid into Greenwood.
All the week carpenters have heen
working on the 750-foot trestle just
this side of the town, and it is now
ready for crossing by the tracklayers.
Chief Engineer Tye came over
the line to the rail head Wednesday, being the first trip since his
recent indisposition and the first
since the road was taken over from
the contractors. He was accompanied hy timber inspector L. M.
Section houses and water tanks
is the first work being done by the
C. P. R. carpenters. Houses for
the accommodation of track men
have been put up at Gladstone and
Gilpins. At Cascade a two-story
depot, section house, freight shed
and huge water tank will be erected.
Cold days and cooler nights are
now the rule.

makes a trip to British Columbia
each year.
Messrs. Francis & Milne, who
have heen located in Cascade for
over a year, have leased the bar of
the Hotel Crowell at Midway. They
carry with them the best wishes of
many Cascade friends.
Frank Asprey, manager of the
B. C. Syndicate Store at English
Point, was in town Wednesday.
He says there is a large amount of
development going on and his
branch is doing a fine business.
Frank Draper has been found
guilty of manslaughter. The deed
was committed June 20, 1897, near
the confluence of Toroda Creek and
Kettle River, the victim being a
half-breed named John Huff. Draper was arretted first for horse
Broke His Arm.
Alexander Lynch sustained a
serious fracture of the right arm,
close to the shoulder last Wednesday, caused by a sudden fall near
the O. K. livery stable. John
Earle, then in the Forks, was notified, and immediately brought
down Dr. Srriith, who set the fractured bone. Jack Flood took Mr.
Lynch to Rossland the next day,
where he will be given the best of
care. At his advanced age the injury is a serious one, but his many
friends hope he will pull through
all right. THE   CASCADE   RECORD

Development of the last six
months in the older Boundary
camps, has been of such a character as to prove beyond a chance of
contradiction, that this section will
soon become world-famous for its
large number of gigantic ledges of
pay ore. Every day and every
week we hear of exploitation which
has shown up as actual, ore bodies
which previously had only been
thought to exist. In fact, the figures in tons of the possible and
probable product of our mines are
so stupendous, that the ordinary
mind finds it difficult to grasp
their full significance.
Already it is patent, even to the
layman, that the C. P. R. will have
all or more than it can do to handle the ore traffic, at least till
smelting begins in the Boundary
itself. A dozen mines can be
mentioned that have ore reserves
from which from 50 to 100 tons
daily can be shipped for years.
It now appears probable that,
by the time our smelters are ready
to receive and treat ores, some time
next-year, the development will
have progressed to such an extent
that the smelters will have to be
increased in number or capacity to
keep up with the production. We
are yet, figuratively speaking, in
our Bwaddling clotheB. The future
is an exceedingly bright one for
this section.
The Grand Forks Miner asserts
that it has it on "trustworthy
authority" that the coke rate to
one or more smelters in the Boundary, would be the same from the
ovens in Fernie to Kettle as to Columbia river points. This rate, it
states, makes the price of coke
$7.50 per ton laid down at the
Kettle river.
It is certainly a little odd that
the C. P. R. should be willing to
haul coke or coal an extra hundred
miles, over one of the most expensive pieces of road ever constructed,
without additional remuneration.
The C, P. R. is not famous for its
philanthropy. It is not noted for
such acts. But it is a business
corporation, conducted on such
lines as will earn the highest dividends for its shareholders. We believe it is a part of the policy of
the company to make favorable
rates on ores as well as coke, so
that it will be possible to handle
the products of low grade mines at
some profit. Yet the report published is hardly reasonable.
To put it another way, the Record is informed from the inner
circle, that no freight contracts
whatever have been made with any
Boundary smelter by the C. P. R.,
and we believe that this statement
is literally correct. If, however,
the C. P. It., as soon as smelters
are actually ready to talk business,
should make a very low rate from
Fernie to Kettle river points, it
would be in a line with their now
well-established policy. It would
be great luck, indeed, if the Columbia river rate was quoted to the
Kettle river. We hope we will be
proved to be wrong, but we greatly
doubt it, for the reasons mentioned.

Some time next week a daily

According to the London Stock

amount of this wealth must be

was the first man  who  had  given
him credit for having a soul.
Between threatened war in the
Transvaal, tne home coming of the
Phillipine fighters and the America's cup yacht races, the daily papers are full of interest at present.
Any one of these events is usually
sufficient to have a dozen columns
devoted to it.
Taking the Cascade fire as a text,
the Cranbrook Herald preaches an
evidently much needed sermon to
the business men of that town, in
regard to fire protection. It would
be the part of wisdom if residents
of all small towns took precautions
in this line before it was too late.
The Nelson Minor says the country is going to the dogs on account
of the enforcement of the eight-
hour law. The Nelson Tribune
tnkes exactly the opposite view.
One can take his choice of the two
opinions, and in the meantime
there are all kinds of baseless rumors afloat, both in Kootenay and
the Boundary.
One of the best publications in
this province is tbe British Columbia Mining Record, of Victoria. A
magnificent Christmas edition of
this monthly is in preparation, to
be profusely illustrated. If Mr.
Lamb's efforts in the past are to be
taken as an index, the Christmas
issue will be something far above
the average. It is intended to be
the finest publication ever produced in the west, and the Record
has no doubt it will be. Success to
Paul Kruger seems fond of quoting scripture in his negotiation!;
with Great Britain. Possibly the
doughty Boer does not so intend
it, but it has the appearance of
Phariseeism. At this writing there
is great tension, but war his not

It is written that when General
Booth was in South Africa lately
he asked Cecil Rhodes how it was

Mr. Rhodes replied that he could
not complain, but that the general
The sage of the New Denver
Ledge recently shook the dust of
silent Slocan from his feet temporarily, and took in the sights of the
lively Boundary���as far as the
new railway would take him. His
published comments on the trip,
as usual, sparkle, and it is evident
he saw all that any one could from
a car window. In his breezy and
caustic comments, however, he forgot ell about people who live in
glass houses.
In the recent order-in-council,
passed at Ottawa, allowing the free
re-admission into Canada of lead
produced by Canadian smelters
and refined by American refineries,
the Rossland Miner sees the fine
Italian hand of the C. P. R., as it
thinks this order will put a monopoly of the smelting industry into
the control of that great corporation. It is getting now so that no
move of any kind can be made by
the Dominion authorities, but the
Miner attributes it, directly or indirectly, to the C. P. R. What a
terrible concern it is, to be sure,
with all the vices and none of the
virtues of man. The Miner editor
must lie awake nights thinking up
come of those anti-C. P. R. stories.

According to a dispatch from
Ottawa, the postmaster-general is
revising the rules and regulations
for bringing into force the amendment to the Postoffice Act passed
last session, which provides for insurance of registered matter transmitted through the mails. There
is a popular idea that the registration of a letter or parcel renders
the government reeponsible for the
value of same in event of its mis'-
carriage or non-delivery, but such
was not the case, and the object of
last session's amendment to this
act is to enable any person registering a letter or parcel insuring
same to the value of $250, by the
payment of a small sum in addition to the registration fee of five
cents. The regulation governing
the insurance will be issued in the
course of a few days.

October 14,1890
This week the Corbin telegraph
line, known on this side as the
Yale & Kootenay, and on the other
as the Spokane Northern, was huilt
into Cascade. It was first constructed last spring from Marcus
across to Republic. This fall it
was built from Republic to Midway, Greenwood and Grand Forks,
thence to Cascade. And now the
gang of 18 men are sdttin^ poles
and stringing wire at a lively rate
from here to Marcus. When completed to Marcus,the first line across,
which is difficult to maintain in
winter time, will be abandoned.
When this Corbin line reached
Grand Forks, an amusing incident
occurred. The managers of the
other three lines-Mwo telephone
and one telegraph���did not think
the Corbin line would be in business there so soon. But as rates
were cut, the new telegraph line
was getting most of the business
till the others caught on. This is
one of the cases where competition
is a good thing for the people.
Heretofore rates have been pretty
high for quick communication
with the outside world. With two
telegraph and two telephone lines
the Bouudary will hereafter enjoy
the best of service of this kind and
at fair rates.
A visit by a Record man to
Grand Forks this week showed that
the town is still lively and growing
rapidly. To the unprejudiced observer it would seem that the
growth is abnormal, and too fast
for permanence. However, everything appears prosperous thereat
present, and the goose is apparently at considerable of an elevation.
Possibly the people there do not
believe in borrowing trouble about
the future, if they do borrow money
to build the town with.
In a few days Grand Forks will
enjoy the proud distinction of being the home of the first daily paper to be published in the Boun-
day country. It will be called the
Gazette, and Eber C. Smith will be
its engineer in chief. Mr. Smith
states that hp is agreeably surprised
at the encouragement and support
he is getting, and now feels certain
of making a success of the venture.
He thinks Grand Forks will never
stop growing till it gets to be a
pla^e of 15,000 people. The newspaper, it is said, will have press
dispatches, and will be a six-column folio, the first number to come
out next Monday.
This week a record representative took a trip up Deep creek, and
visited seme of the copper properties in that locality. The King
William, New Year, Copper Wonder and Jessamine were among
them. The former is well equipped
with h whim and has a double
compartment shaft sunk to a depth
of 80 feet. The New Year has a
good appenranre, and excellent
Mini pies were obtained from the
Jessamine and Copper Wonder.
The King William, owned hy Gil-
. l>ert R. Kinnear, is said to be under bond for $20,000 to a strong
syndicate. If indications count
for anything, this section, within

Forin, at Rossland, the other day.
The extradition treaty now in force
did not go into operation till six
years after the crime was committed, or in 1890, and the law is not

way remains to apprehend this fugitive from American justice, and
that is to have him delivered
across the line by the Dominion
government. In rare cases this
has been done, but there are a few
isolated precedents. It is not yet
stated what will be done by the
hank authorities. Hinckley has

Eugene Stubbs In Custody.
The provincil police have been
looking for the man Stubbs, who is
charged with setting fire to the Columbia hotel on the night of July
17th last. This week Constable
Darraugh, of Cascade, learned that
Eugene Stubbs was at Eholt, and
notified Constable Dinsmore at
Grand Forks. The latter started
after his man, and after chasing
him to Phoenix and thence back to
Eholt, secured him.
It is given out that the report
published some time ago of the
arrest of James Stubbs for this
offense was a ruse to get the right
man hack on this side of the international line. James J. Stubbs
was the name of the man the police
were supposed to be after. Today
Constable McMynn, of Midway,
passed through Cascade, enroute to
Kamloops, having Stubbs in custody. He also had a man named
Riley, from Greenwood, sentenced
to .four months for burglary.
Court will open next Tuesday at
Kamloops, instead of Vernon.

It oftens happens that prospectors, like other persons, imagine that
something a long distance from
home is better in a mineral way
thmi anything to he had nearer at
hand. This is exemplified hy the
hundreds of heartsick wanderers
that have returned from Klondyke,
Alaska, and other inhospitable regions. Many, of course, left their
hones in the icy north, as whitening monuments of what men will
do in the mad chase for wealth.
Around Cascade there are localities, with promise of mineral wealth
that have not hegun to be prospected. Many of them have not
even heen scratched. Among this
is the range of mountains on the
west side of Christina lake. It is
true a few locations have been
made, hut in most cases hut little
work has heen done, and the impression seems tn prevail that there
is not much there worth going
after. But there is no logical reason brought forward as yet, why
the ground should be rich on the
slope towards the north fork of
Kettle river, and barren on the
other slope of the same range.
Working on Moody Creek..
There are a few who differ in
their opinion from the majority on
this point, and they have the courage of their convictions. One of
these is Phillip Reilly, who has
heen working away for many
months on his property up Moody
creek. Last year he stopped work
long enough to go to Spokane, enlist in the United States cavalry,
and take in the campaign in Cuba.
He was in the memorable charge
up San Juan hill, before Santiago,
and came out unscathed. Last
May he came back to Cascade, and
has spent the time since on his
One of these is the Parnell, on
which he says there is an immense
ledge. In the face of the 17-foot
tunnel average assays gave returns
of $67 in gold and copper. Mr.
Reilly has great faith in his camp,
and is certain it will turn out well.
The property is about five miles
from Casoade.
Other claims in this locality are
the Gladstone, Bobbie Burns, Emily Anna, Dolly K., Francis E.,and
the White Mountain. Hayes and
Anderson, of Rossland, are interested here, and if the values re
ported can he generally found, it
ought to be an important camp.
The Record has already stated
that, farther up the lake, one property, the West End, has been steadily developing this year, and that
the owners, Farrin, Boyd and Cameron, were well satisfied thus far.
With seven feet of good ore, averaging $28 in copper and gold, they
believe they have a good thing,
and expect to work  it all  winter.
Tbe Following Advice is Worth Reading and
Good advice is to be met with at
almost every angle of life, and
while the following is taken from
an advertisement it is worth reading and remembering, and there
never was a community that could
nut act upon it with great benefit.
If there's any chance to boom
business boom it. Don't be a
knocker. Don't pull a long face
and get sour in your stomach.
Hope a bit. Get a smile on. Hold
up your head. Get ahold with
both hands. Then pull. Bury
your hatchet. Drop your tomahawk. Hide your little hammer.
When a stranger drops in, jolly
him. Tell him this is the greatest
town on earth. It is. Don't get
muleish. Don't roast. Just jolly.
Get popular. It's dead easy. Help
yourself along. Push your friends
with you. Soon you'll have a full
procession.   Be a good fellow.
No man ever helped himself by
knocking other people down. No
man ever got rich trying to make
people believe that he was the only
good man on earth. You can't
climb the ladder of fame hy stepping on other people's corns.
They're their corns. Not yours.
And they're tender. Keep off the
All men are not alike. Once in
a while you will find one who is
very much alike. But some are
different. You are not the only
one. If you don't like their style
let'em alone. Don't knock. Walk
right in. And make yourself pleasant. You'll get used to it. There's
no end ��f fun in minding your own
business. And it makes other
people like you better. Better have
other" stuck on you than get stuck
on yourself. Nobody gets stuck on
a knocker.   Don't he one.   Or two.
