Brief Description of our of Casoado's Most
Promising Districts.
If I here is one locality more than
another that is attracting the attention of mining men, l>y reason
of its remarkable surface showings,
that region is the Burnt Basin.
This rapidly-becoming-famous, locality is situated about eighteen
miles north or northeast of Cascade,
near the new town of Gladstone,
being ten miles from Christina
lake. It is close to the line of railway now under construction. The
district now located occupies a territory three by .'���even miles in size,
and is a plateau.
In the summer of 1896 the first
locations were made there by Hunter, Gee and Henderson and were
the Edison group of four claims.
The ledges are from 25 to 40 feet in
ividlh, and carry gold in iron
pvrites. Richard Plewman, of
Rossland, who has become interested, expects to begin development
in the spring.
The Mystery gmup of 10 claims,
owned by Willardson and Johnson,
has a large lead, the ore assaying $24
to $2
I     111   gol(
1, silver and  copper.
These prospectors cut the h'tst, trail
into the Burnt Basin. The claims
were under bond to an American
Syndicate at the outbreak of the
Spanish war. A deal is now pending.
Adjoining the Edison and Mystery groups is the Bryan group
owned by Edward Burr and associates of Rossland, and having
the same kind of a showing, with
galena on one claim. The owners
are waiting for the completion of
the new railway.
The Solid Gold group of five
chums, located by Fred Frederick-
son in 1897 and sold to Richard
Cooper, of Rossland, is well named.
There is solid ore on every one of
the claims, being galena and copper. One lead is six feet wide. The
Solid Gold claim is gold copper.
The Eva Bell, adjoins the Solid
Gold on the west, and is owned by
Mr. Rogers, of Grand Forks, and
H. L. Jones, of Rossland. It is
also a gold-copper claim with a
galena lead giving assays of $77.
The Barrow is next to the Solid
Gold also and is one of the best
claims, being very high grade gold-
copper. A Greenwood man is the
owner.
Between the Edison and Solid
Gold is the Ennismore, owned by
Thomas Keller, assaying 40 oz.
silver and 55 per cent. lead. Right
here also are several claims owned
by tho B. C. M. & M. syndicate, of
Cascade, with similar showings.
In the same belt and west of the
Edison group, is the Lawless group,
owned by Reid, McPherson, Roy
and Greer of Rossland. The lead
has been crosscut for 30 feet, and is
now in solid gold-copper ore. On
the same lead also are tho Isabella,
owned by the Lattah Bros., and the
Blue Monday and No. 65, owned by
Jack Singer, all of Rossland, both of
which are promising.
COM)  STICKING  OUT.
Separated by a ravine is another
belt on which Mike Thick made
his remarkable discoveries on the
Mother Lode group, getting assays
of $0,500 in gold. Dozens have
seen it and picked out chunks of
free gold as souvenirs. This was
located last fall, the rock being a
fine, pure, free milling quartz.
Next to Shick's claims are situated the famous Tammany group,
owned by Reid and associates. Free
gold can be readily seen sticking
out of the quartz, and experts who
examined it could hardly believe
their eyes. Assays have gone over
$5,000, in 50 lbs. of rock every
piece showing the yellow stuff. The
iedge is twelve feet wide and several
outfits are figuring on the property
and a deal will probably be closed
soon
Two miles beyond the Tammany
is the International group of >'our
claims, which Fred Frederickson
has recently sold to a German
syndicate for $10,000 cash. The
treasurer of the syndicate is now on
the ocean, en route here, nnd pending his arrival work is going on.
The ledge is something stupendous,
being 200 feet wide.
The Tunnel S'te and Kitty are
also owned by Frederickson, the
Mecklenburg, by C. Wallis, and
the Monitor by C. H. Thomas, of
Cascade. They are all most promising, having gold-bearing quartz.
The Red Chief group has three
claims and gave assays of $28 in
gold and 6f per cent copper. It is
owned by Harry Denton, of Cascade, and J. A. Seaman, of Wenat-
chee, Wash. The lead is easily
traceable across the three claims.
Win. Day has several claim? on the
creek bearing his name, which are
said to have excellent shawings.
Dan Clark, of Rossland, owns the
Hilltop, near the Tammany, and
will begin work on it in the spring.
Dr. McKenzie, of Rossland, owns
the Hastings, near the Eva Bell,
which has fine surface showings.
m uw son,
Iron Being Put Down at the Rate of
John L. White, a druggist of SIo-
can City, with W. E. Worden,
secured a lot on Firit Avenue yesterday, near the post office, and
will at once erect a store.
Assurances have been given that
the licensing board, which sits on
the 15th of December, will hold a
session in this city. This will be
a great convenience to Cascade's
hotel keepers.
The Record has been informed
l.y several persons of a dead horse
being in the river at Edward's
Ferry, which has been there for
several days, and which if not removed at once will doubtless be the
cause of sickness to the community.

success, according to reports. The
scraper proper has been sent to a
machine shop at Nelson to have
some alterations made.
D. McLeod, purchasing agent for
Mann, Foley Bros. & Larson, was
in town from Brooklyn, and informed the Record that there are
now 24b' horses employed in freighting his firm's merchandise from
Bossburg to the storehouse in Cascade. Mitchell Bros, have the contract and are putting on new teams
constantly.
Everyone interested in railroading has been inquiring of late when
the laying of steel was likely to
begin on the new Robson-Pentieton
line, now under construction
through here. This important part
of building this steel highway has
at lant commenced, though there is
not much danger of hearing the
screech of the iron horse in this
town for some time yet.
Work commenced several days
ago on the track-laying at West
Robson, and has been going on at
the rate of about 2,000 feet per day.
There was some delay in getting
started, owing to the fact that the
locomotive to be used slipped off
the barge in the Columbia while
landing and had to be replaced.
Just how fast the work will progress is difficult to state now, as
there is still considerable work to
be done on bridges, trestles and
tunnels aiong Lower Arrow Lake.
THREE  MEN INJURED.
Last Tuesday three Italians,
whose names could not be learned,
were seriously injured by a premature blast at the camp of McLean
Bros., near Gladstone. It seems
that the men had not taken warning by the foolhardy examples of
several others whose rash acts have
been recorder!. They tried to load
a hole that had been sprung and
was still warm, and of course the
blast went off prematurely and all
three were severely hurt. They
were taken to the company's hospital in Brooklyn for treatment.
CONSTRUCTION  NOTES.
Snow to a depth of about a foot
or more covers the tote road for
many miles after the summit is
reached.
Last Tuesday a laborer employed
at Koykendall's camp, near Brooklyn, hung himself. The remains
were taken to Brooklyn for the
coroner's inquest.
Burns & Jordan, whose No. 2
camp is located a mile or two west
of Gladstone, expect to shortly put
in another camp between Grand
Forks and Greenwood.

man. They are much pleased with
Cascade.
Mr. Carruthers, travelling agent
for Turner, Beeton & Co., Nelson,
had a narrow escape one evening
here recently, when some one accidentally shot off a gun in one of
our leading hotels. The ball passed
through a partition arid through
Mr. Carruthers' coat sleeve.
Slim Cosgrove, the genial typographical expert who so ably assisted in getting out the first issue
of the Record, departed on Sunday's
stage for his home in Kaslo. He is
one of the best known followers of
the art preservative in the west,
and thinks of returning and locating in the Boundary country,
where he has a host of friends.
Nelson & Bedlington Contract Let
The report has been sent out that
the contract for the construction of
the so long talked of Nelson &
Bedlington railway has been awarded to Messrs. Foliet and Guthrie,
the well known railway builders,
who have been in this line of business in the Pacific Northwest for
many years. Together they make
an exceedingly strong combination.
The price is not made public, but
it is stated that the road is to be
completed and ready for trains by
May 1st, 1899.. Contractors have
had their eye on this piece of work
for a number of months, hut now
all speculation is at rest, and it is
the intention of those fortunate,
enough to secure the plum to push
the work with all possible speed.
The road is to be operated by the
Kootenay Railway & Navigation
Co., the new corporation which has
taken over the Kaslo & Slocan railway and the International Navigation Company steamers connecting
therewith. As is now well known,
James J. Hill, the Great Northern
magnate is the power behind the
throne in the new company, and
this new connecting link will give
him a new line into the heart of the
rich Kootenay mining districts and
also immediate connection with the
Crow's Nest coal fields. The new
road will be about 60 miles or a
little less in length, and will for
the most part follow up the Kootenay river from Kuskonook to Bonner's Ferry. There is said to be no
serious obstacle to the work of construction over the surveyed route.
That part of the country will doubtless present a scene of the greatest
activity.
��� �����
Heroism Among Miners
Heroes are to be found among
miners as well as among soldiers.
There have been several exhibitions
of remarkable courage on the part
of miners in this camp, says the
Rossland Miner. One was that
made by George Drewry a few days
ago in the Sunset No. 2, in his rescue of Fred Holt from death, and
his attempt to save the lives of
William J. Cain and Patrick No
Ian. The following incident occurred in a mine in Sumdum, Alaska,
and is as great a display of courage
on the part of miners in saving the
life of a companion as ever occurred on a battle field:
Three miners had just spitted 11
holes in the bottom of a shaft and
started for the surface on the edge
of the bucket. The swing of the
bucket threw one of them against
a timber and he was knocked out,
falling to the bottom. He was not
seriously hurt and retained perfect
consciousness. Death in a horrible
form stared him in the face.
"Billy! Billy!" shouted he to the
foreman, "don't leave me here to
die." "Pull that bell cord," said
the foreman to his companion. " I
can't find it," was the reply. "Pull
that bell cord, damn you, or I'll
knock you off the bucket." The
cord was pulled and the descent,
then 60 feet from the bottom of the
6haft, was made. As the bottom
was approached, the engineer slowed up as usual. Quick signals to
lower, and. the bottom being reached, the two men jumped off, and
grabbing the hurt man, jumped into the bucket. Signals to hoist at
full speed started them upward.
The explosion occurred just as the
men reached the surface and safety.
Who shall say that heroism of the
highest kind was not here displayed ?

Twelve Feet of Fine Gold-Copper Ore
Have Been Uncovered,
AND BUT ONE WALL YET FOUND
Frank Hutchinson Brings Down Samples ami
Tells tho Record All About It
A most important strike was
made on the Elmore mineral claim
this week by Frank Hutchinson,
the locator, that is undoubtedly the
best yet reported from the Christina lnke district, and which means
much to Cascade City. Twelve
feet of good gold-copper ore have
been discovered in crosscutting, and
only one wall was reached.
The Elmore group, consisting of
the Elmore and Corrydon, is situated on Shamrock mountain, at
the head of Baker and Sullivan
creeks, three miles due east of
, Christina lake and about seven
miles from Cascade. The claims
were located in the spring of 1897
by Mr. Hutchinson, and since then
every foot of ground has been
staked between that point and the
lake. An immense iron capping is
plainly visible on the surface for a
distance of sixty feet or more. The
locator worked all last winter on
the property, sinking a shaft some
forty feet and then drifting twenty
feet. The showing was good, but
the owners hoped for something
better, and this fall perseveringly
started at it again about twenty
feet east of the shaft, where the surface was covered with gravel. Here
Mr Hutchinson crosscut on the
surface, making an opening three
to twelve feet deep and twenty-five
feet long. At this point he went
into clean chalcopyritic ore at least
twelve feet, and without going
further came to Cascade last Thursday to test his samples and relate
his good fortune to the Record and
the rest of the world.
About a year ago several Rossland capitalists became interested
in the immense iron caps of Shamrock mountain, and Smith Curtis,
of that city, organized the Belcher
Gold Mining Co., with a capital of
$1,000,000, to take over and develop
the Elmore group. Mr. Hutchinson is president and Mr. Curtis
secretary and manager of the company. Mr. Curtis is now in the
district and will be made acquainted with the rich strike without delay, when a large force of
men will doubtless be put to work.
Owners of claims on Shamrock
mountain, realizing that if the
Elmore did not prove up as anticipated, their properties were not
likely to become valuable, have
waited for the results of Mr. Hutchinson's work. They will be not a
little pleased to hear of this strike,
and there is little doubt but that
a large amount of development will
be done there without delay. The
ore is almost identical with the
gold-copper product of the Rossland
district, and the importance of the
strike to Cascade can scarcely be
overestimated.
GLADSTONE   GLINTS
James Cameron has charge of the
development work being prosecuted
on the John Bull group, close to
town. A force of four men is now
at work, the bunk house, blacksmith shop, etc., having been completed. A winter's stock of supplies have been packed and work
on the claim proper will now begin
in earnest. If the property shows
up as its owners are confident it
will, they will all be wearing diamonds one of these fine days.
J. S. Wisner has begun work on
his new hotel, which will be located
on McRae avenue, on the main
travelled road from Brooklyn to
Cascade.
Sam McOrmond has the frame oi
his new hotel building up, and has
it pretty well covered in. He expects to have it open soon, having
already secured his license.
Several experts, representing
syndicates, have been here examining Burnt Basin properties of late.
They are universally well pleased
with the result of their investigations and some good sales are likely
to occur before long.
There is now nearly a foot of
snow in the Burnt Basin, but access
is not yet closed to that locality.

WATER POWER CITIES.
A student of the growth of cities
that have their location where
nature so arranged things that
power can be had from the nearby
water courses, will find in this a
most interesting and instructive
i-tudy. He will learn���if not cognizant of it before���that such citieB
have in due time taken on a substantial and permanent growth and
have become great centres of industry and trade ; all of which was, in
a large measure, due to the fact
that power could be improved at
moderate cost and practically in
unlimited quantities. Numerous
instances of this kind could be cited
in the far east. But to come nearer
home, we can take Minneapolis and
even Spokane as bright and shining
exemplifications of this now readily
admitted fact. Each of these
widely known places was founded
and for years had its growth and
prosperity solely by reason of the
magnificent water power found at
its doors ; and each is now a thriving community that is steadily
growing in importance.
Cascade City today stands in
relatively the same position that
Minneapolis and Spokane did years
ago. As a railway center this city
has just as bright prospects as the
cities mentioned had when their
pioneers laid the foundations of the
fortunes that awaited them. We
might even go a little farther and
say, without stretching the truth in
the least, that today Cascade has
some advantages over those cities
at a similar age. We have here already a strong corporation, now at
work improving the opportunities
which nature has so generously
provided, and the next few months
will undoubtedly show to the world
that in no section of the Dominion
can there be found a more prosperous or stable young city.
This prosperity will undoubtedly
flow largely from the fact that we
have this huge engine that can and
will drive the myriads of wheels of
industry���aye, for scores of miles,
to either side of us���and that
capital and energy have been able,
in their wisdom, to peer far enough
into the future to appreciate its inestimable advantages, not only to
themselves, but to the entire country immediately surrounding and
tributary to it.
There are persons, living right in
this city today who do not appreciate the magnitude and importance
of the preparations now going on
for the harnessing of the multitude
of little drops of water that flow
through the Kettle river. The
possibilities were, however, freely
taken into consideration by the
townsite founders when they acquired the many broad acres here
nearly ten years ago, and have had
the faith to hold on, through all
the hard times that have been experienced since then. It must be
pleasant for them to note now that
their judgment of that early day is
being endorsed heartily and freely
every day and every week. That
they areentitled to and have earned
the fruits of their foresightedness,
no fair minded man will deny.
Fortunately for the young town,
they are liberal in their idea?, and
are willing to do the fair thing by
any man who comes here and
means business.
Cascade's water power has already attracted hundreds. In the
future it will attract many thousands, and before the Record has
become a yearling this will become
patent to the few who even now
are posing as doubting Thomases.
IS A CRYING NEED.
If there is one thing more than
another that Cascade and the
Boundary country needs more than
another���in these times when needs
are so numerous���it is the establishment here of offices of some
recognized express company. At
present the nearest office of this
kind is at Bossburg, not a convenient place for business men living thirty to fifty miles away to do
business in. The Record was recently notified by the Dominion
Express Co7s"agent in Penticton,
150 or more miles from Cascade,
that a smalt package for this paper
from Victoria had reached that
office. This but illustrates the
point here made.
If the Dominion Express Co.
could have the facts and figures of
the large business to be handled
in here, presented to them, the
matter would surely receive favorable consideration. When a business man orders goods by express,
he does it with the expectation of
getting prompt delivery and is willing to pay therefor. But a loss of
three or four days, as is often the
case, from the nearest railway office
is a serious affair to him.
The concerns now handling express matter are doing all in their
power to facilitate business, and
are certainly most accommodating
in every way. But, as a rule, an
order must needs be sent, and this
means aggravating delay. The
subject is well worth taking up by
our business men and working out.
If it is gone at in the right way
and in the proper spirit the Record
believes that good will certainly
come of the effort.
in expressing appreciation of the
kindly reception accorded this
youngest of Yale newspapers.
Gentlemen, may your shadows
never grow less.
There is one way that the publishers of the Record object to receiving subscriptions���and that is
by freight from Bossburg. If any

THE   CASCADE   RECORD
L-./
BY THE WAYSIDE.
Notes by the Scribe.
The Wayfarer is neither a prophet nor the son of a prophet, but
lie will willingly risk the prediction made while he is sound in
mind and in possession of his faculties, that Cascade City within
two years will be second to no city
in southern Yale. He is not paid
for making this prediction, and he
does it of his own free will, basing
his belief on careful notes and observations made here. The facts
contained in the two leading
articles in last week's Record constitute a conservative statement of
the situation here No mention
was then* made of the growth
of the last three months,
which is a surprise to even those
familiar with the Gateway City.
These articles comprise what Shake-
spear would have called a plain,
unvarnished tale, and are worthy
a careful perusal by any one who
lias not happened to read them.
-%.
It should be distinctly understood that the Wayfarer has nothing to do with this great family
journal further than to give vent
to his ideas in this column. He
makes this remark here because of
the numerous congratulations received on the appearance of the
first issue last week, which should
have been bestowed upon the editor
and publishers. However, the Wayfarer will gladly pass them along
to those to whom they belong.
The cry of "fire" a few nights
ago quite justly startled all within
bearing, especially when it is remembered that all water has to lie
hauled from the river in barrels.
Fortunately, it was nothing worse
than a defective Hue, which was
quickly extinguished by a pail of
water, little or no damage being
done. But this little incident
served its lesson in setting many to
thinking, ami the result in one
direction will doubtless be the taking   out   of   more .��ui   jftsur&v"v
the Wayfarer is a bit of a sport.
Therefore he read with no little interest of the intensely exciting race
that took place in Greenwood. He
refers here to the race of chartered
banks to get opened up first in the
Mountain City. Everyone in the
Boundary country was an interested
spectator���at a distance���and none
more so than the people of Cascade.
In this connection, our people will
do well to keep a weather eye open,
for the chances are more than good
that a similar scene will be enacted
right here in tho near future ; and
this race, if it is pulled off, will be
even more interesting to us than
was that in Greenwood. The first
institution of this character that
opens up for business in Cascade
will, beyond a shadow of a doubt,
do an excellent business, and be
received with open arms.
���%��
Another thing that is as sure to
come, as that the day follows the
night, is the establishing of a customs collector here in Cascade, instead of making this a sub port of
entry, as at present arranged.
Traffic from the States must come
through the valley of the Kettle
river, via Cascade, and when the
Kettle River Hail way is built, or
before, Cascade will beyond question
be given the recognition it deserves
along this line. Such is the opinion
of the Wayfarer, as well as of those
whose foresight is said to be as good
as many another man's hindsight.

WATER POWER CITIES.
A student of the growth of cities
(hat have their location where
nature so arranged things that
I tower can be had from the nearby
water courses, will find in this a
most interesting and instructive
i-tudy. He will learn���if not cognizant of it before���that such cities
have in due lime taken on a substantial and permanent growth and
have become great centres of industry and trade ; all of which was, in
a large measure, due to the fact
that power could be improved at
moderate cost and practically in
unlimited quantities. Numerous
instances of this kind could be cited
in the far east. But to come nearer
home, we can take Minneapolis and
even Spokane as bright and shining
exemplifications of this now readily
admitted fact. Each of these
widely known places was founded
and for years had its growth and
prosperity solely by reason of tho
magnificent water power found at
its doors ; and each is now a thriving community that is steadily
growing in importance.
Cascade City today stands in
relatively the same position that
Minneapolis and Spokane did years
ago. As a railway center this city
has just as bright prospects as the
cities mentioned had when their
pioneers laid the foundations of the
fortunes that awaited them. We
might even go a little farther and
say, without stretching the truth in
the least, that today Cascade has
some advantages over those cities
at a similar age. We have here already a strong corporation, now at
work improving the opportunities
which nature has so generously
provided, and the next few months
will undoubtedly show to the world
that in no section of the Dominion
can there be found a rr >re prosperous or stable young cif
This prosperity will an 'itedly
flow largely from the fac. t we
have this huge engine that can and
will drive the myriads of wheels of
industry���aye, for scores of miles,
to either side of us���and that
capital and energy have been able,
in their wisdom, to peer far enough
into the future to appreciate its inestimable advantages, not only to
themselves, but to the entire country immediately surrounding and
tributary to it.
There are persons, living right in
this city today who do not appreciate the magnitude and importance
of the preparations now going on
for the harnessing of the multitude
of little drops of water that flow
through the Kettle river. The
possibilities were, however, freely
taken into consideration by the
townsite founders when they acquired the many broad acres here
nearly ten years ago, and have had
the faith to hold on, through all
the hard times that have been experienced since then. It must be
pleasant for them to note now that
their judgment of that early day is
being endorsed heartily and freely
every day and every week. That
they areentitled to and have earned
the fruits of their foresightedness,
no fair minded man will deny.
Fortunately for the young town,
they are liberal in their idets, and
are willing to do the fair thing by
any man who comes here and
means business.
Cascade's water power has already attracted hundreds. In the
future it will attract many thousands, and before the Record has
become a yearling this will become
patent to the few who even now
are posing as doubting Thomases.
IS A CRYINQ NEED.
If there is one thing more than
another that Cascade and the
Boundary country needs more than
another���in these times when needs
are so numerous���it is the establishment here of offices of some
recognized express company. At
present the nearest office of this
kind is at Bossburg, not a convenient place for business men living thirty to fifty miles away to do
business in. The Record was recently notified by the Dominion
Express Co.'s agent in Penticton,
150 or more miles from Cascade,
that a small package for this paper
from Victoria had reached that
office. This but illustrates the
point here made.
If the Dominion Express Co.
could have the facts and figures of
the large business to be handled
in here, presented to them, the
matter would surely receive favorable consideration. When a business man orders goods by express,
he does it with the expectation of
getting prompt delivery and is willing to pay therefor. But a loss of
three or four days, as is often the
case, from the nearest railway office
is a serious affair to him.
The concerns now handling express matter are doing all in their
power to facilitate business, and
are certainly most accommodating
in every way. But, as a rule, an
order must needs be sent, and this
means aggravating delay. The
subject is well worth taking up by
our business men and working out.
If it is gone at in the right way
and in the proper spirit the Record
believes that good will certainly
come of the effort.
The intelligent editors of many
journals hereabouts are saying kind
things about the Record. The
editor, business manager, advertising solicitor, collector, pressman
and corps of compositors down to
the devil himself, one and all unite
in expressing appreciation of the
kindly reception accorded this
youngest of Yale newspapers.
Gentlemen, may your shadows
never grow less.
There is one way that the publishers of the Record object to receiving subscriptions���and that is
by freight from Bossburg. If any
are sent that way they are not
liable to reach this sanctum on this
earth. Prospective subscribers will
please take notice.
With surveyors in the field for
the extension of the Columbia &
Western from Midway to Penticton ; with the contract let for the
Nelson &   Bedlington,  and   with
good chances for the construction
of the Kettle River Valley road
next year, it appears as though
there would be no abatement of
railway building in southern British Columbia.

The Record regrets that the great
demand for the paper last week
far exceeded the supply. We expected a cordial reception, but the
unusually warm recognition of the

will be plenty of copies for all, but

CHRISTINA MATTERS.
The town of Christina, or Moody-
ville, is gradually growing and
there will soon be quite a settlement here.
Redlield & Wilson, of Waterville,
Wash., are now en route with their
sawmill, and have written Mr.
Moody that they expect to be ready
for business by the 25th inst. This
will relieve the lumber famine.
Stewart & Co., who will open a
general store at once, have a large
stock of general merchandise on
the way, which is looked for any
day.
Mr. Moody is now putting up a
hotel and livery stable, which is
expected to be completed in about
two weeks. A Mr. Waterman, of
Vancouver, haf) been engaged to
run it.
The steam yacht, Myrtle B., now
makes two regular daily trips to
the Cove, besides several extra runs.
IN AND AROUND CASCADE.
Greenwood has decided to borrow $10,000 more to finish the street
grading now in progress.
W. Forrest, J. P., of Gladstone,
was in the city early in the week
en route to Grand Forks.
The work done on the streets of
Cascade during the last week has
resulted in a great improvement in
the general appearance of the town.
Horace W. Buck, mining engineer from Kaslo, who has been
looking over some Boundary Creek
properties, was in the city last
Saturday.
Geo. B. McAuley stopped over in
Cascade on Tuesday night on his
way from Camp McKinney to Spokane He is interested in the dividend paying Cariboo gold mine, of
that camp.
The Exchange and Safe Deposit
Co. will open up in Grand Forks
shortly. The concern has been
doing business in East Kootenay
for a couple of years. C. M. Keep
is to have charge of the new branch
If there is a man in Cascade who
is not anathematizing the difficulties of getting goods in from Bossburg, he is yet to be heard from.
He surely must belong to a different order of beings than most of us.
S. W. Meek, formerly of Rossland, has arrived in the city and
accepted a position with the Cascade Drug Co. This concern expects to move down on First Avenue in a short time to a new
location.
The business men of Grand
Forks have subscribed a fund of
$500 to shorten the wagon road to
Niagara, thus diverting the trade
to the Forks. It will bring the
distance down to less than six
miles.
A new town has been started on
the North Fork of Kettle River, at
the foot of Pathfinder mountain. It
is called Timvile, after Tim Town-
send, who has put up a log building at that point. The place already has several buildings, and is
beginning to put on airs.
A mile and a half north of the
new town of Niagara still another
townsite has been surveyed and
called Virginia City. It is near
some mineral claims, and there is
also some heavy railway work
there that will keep a large force in
the neighborhood all winter. A
two-story log hotel is already in
course of erection.
Forty Loads at Once.
Monday was one of the busiest
days thus far experienced in the
Cascade custom house, and Collector Rose had his hands full every
minute of the official day. Some
forty four-horse teams were assembled in a phalanx, four or five
deep, the driver of each waiting
more or less patiently to get clearance papers for his particular load
of merchandise. The quantity of
merchandise coming in at this sub-
port is increasing fast each month,
and the government should add to
the already overworked force without further delay.
New Express Line
Messrs. Williams & Elkins, of
the Boundary Stage & Express Co.,
are deserving of great credit for
their efforts to establish a reliable
express service between Bossburg
and Cascade. They are now making regular trips with good teams
and in excellent time. It is yet a
question whether there is business
sufficient to warrant this service,
but it is believed that if our business men will unite in giving their
express business to this firm, it will
be sufficient to ensure its continuance. It is a great accommodation
to the people of Cascade and should
receive hearty support.

FATHER OF CASCADE HERE.
Hel is Much P'eased at the Results of
Four rionths' Development
Aaron Chandler, the father of
Cascade, returned on Wednesday
night from his old home in Gardner, N. D., and will remain here
for some time.
It was nearly ten years ago when
Mr: Chandler first saw the present
site of Cascade and was so pleased
that he immediately proceeded to
get title to the property. At first
the progress was slow, for years in
fact ; but now his wisdom and
judgment are being verified to the
fullest extent, and the place is
growing as fast as is desirable. It
is four months since Mr. Chandler
left here, and he informs the Record
that be is surprised and pleased at
the changes that have taken place
since then. Mr. Chandler is president of the Cascade Development
Co.. owning the townsite, a corporation with a capital of $500,000. He
has always been a pioneer in the
far west, having been in Tacoma
two years before the present populous city was started on Puget
��ound, and also coming to Spokane
in early days, where an addition,
now worth an immense sum, bears
his m ��ne.
.���anksgiving Proclamation
I  The governor general has issued
the following proclamation :
" Whereas   it   has   pleased   Almighty God, in his great goodness,
to vouchsafe this year nnto our Dominion of Canada, a bountiful harvest and other blessings :
" We, therefore, considering that
these blessings enjoyed by our people throughout the Dominion do
call for a solemn and public announcement, have thought fit, by
and with the advice of our Privy
Council for Canada, to appoint, and
we do appoint Thursday, the 24th
day of November next, as a day of
general thanksgiving to Almighty
God for the bountiful harvest and
other blessings with which Canada

that all well regulated cities are

increasing. Periodical examinations are made on the last Friday

NEWS OF THE KOOTENAYS.
Rossland is taking measure? to
prevent the spread of contagious
diseases.
Trail, since the starting up of the
big Milker, has  been  picking up
i. a lu.-ine.-s way.
���'. H. Gray, land commissioner
of the new Kootenay Railway and
Navigation Co., has completed the
surveys for the Lardo-Duncan railway. It will have easy grades and
i- expected to be built next year.
It is given out that the Nelson
Miner, which has been in the market for s;ime time, ha-* been purchased by Mr. Beeton, formerly of
the Winnipeg Free Press.
The Bank of British Columbia
will open a branch shortly in Rossland, which will make five of these
chartered institutions to be located
there.
Fred Mountain, chief of Provincial police in Nelson, whose position as previously announced is to
betaken by W. H. Bullick-Web-
ster. has been promoted. Mr.
Mountain h is not as yet received
any instructions from headquarters
as to his duties.
The C. P. R. will soon put on
a new, light draft steel steamer, to
be called the Minto, after Canada's
new governor-general. It will take
the place of the steamer Rossland
and is an exact duplicate of the
Moyie, recently launched at the
Nebon shipyards.
A local paper, says the Nelson
Miner, gravely announces the birth
of a child in this city two weeks
old. This extraordinary occurrence shows the phenominal fecundity of this neighborhood. The
ozone in the atmosphere is believed
to have somethin? to do with it.
But scientists aver that it is entirely due to the latitude. After a
while, when this grand province
gets a good start and shakes off the
inertia that now restricts its powers, children will be born here big
enough to vote.
If you want the news of this
important section, and want it
fresh, the trick is easy. Just place
a $2 bill in an envelope, with your
name and address, and send it to
the Cascade Record, Csircside, B. C.
