No. 37.
Holds Its Annual Meetlnf, Heart the Secretary's Report and Elects Officers.
The iiimuiil meeting of the stockholder* of the United Slates Mar-
iile company wiih held Saturday
liint in the company's office in Spo-
kanp. Out of 1,380,944 shares is-
sued t" date, 1,226,089 were represented. A remarkable evidence of
the confidence which stockholders
have in the present management of
the company, was shown hy the
fact that out of a total of ahout 160
shareholders, 110 had given their
proxies to either the president or
manager, so that these two gentlemen voted over 800,000 shares in
the meeting. The meeting was harmonious and enthusiastic, and resulted in the re-election hy unanimous vole of the old board of trustees consisting of President Charles
S. Nims of Harbor Beach, Mich ;
vice president, Joseph A. White of
Spokane; secretary, treasurer and
general manager, Charles E. Mitchell of Spokane; superintendent,
Thomas H. Greenway of Valley,
and the additional member of the
hoard is A. N. Fitzsimmons of Chicago.
The secretary's annual report to
the stockholders was a most gratifying one, showing that the company had reached the stage of development where returns in the shape
of handsome dividends would take
the place of assessments. The principal works of the U. S. Marble
company are at Valley, in the state
of Washington. Last winter a machinery plant was installed at the
Valley quarry at great expense.
The character of the marble at that
quarry is i.f a light green and gray
serpentine, and the company has
standing orders for the stone at
17.50 per cubic foot, or about
$1,500 per car load.
This company also owns the
Onyx quarry located on Deep creek
near Cascade, where an immense
area of marble rock has been discovered, and is now being uncovered preparatory to being mined on
a large scale. The color of the marble here found is of a beautiful
dark green, and taken in conjunction with that ohtained at Valley
gives a variety in colors that enables the company to supply any
shade desired, and the product of
both quarries more marketable.
Mr. Bauine has secured a contract from the company to do a
large amount of development work
on the Deep creek quarry, and
when this is completed, a machinery plant will he put in, and a
large force of men employed. It is
pleasing to know that the U. S.
Marble company is to inaugurate
so great, an enterprise so near tolls,
and which con not fail to be of great
benefit to Cm-cade. Appended is an
extract from ihe secretary's report:
The government supervising architect, Mr. Taylor, has expressed
the utmost enthusiasm over our
green and gray serpentine, and has
promised to specify it for all government buildings in the west
whose appropriations will stand
the cost of such interior finish. This
means the early opening to us of
an immense business in government structures which are springing up all over the west. Mr. Her-
ron has secured the good will of
Cass Gilbert, the world-famed architect of the New York customhouse, a $10,000,000 building. Mr.
Gilbert is also architect of the Minnesota state capitol building, one
of the finest cnpitols in the country.
He has agreed to specify our material for both of these great buildings as well as for others which he
has in view, and he has assured
our Mr. Herron that large quantities of our stone will find market
under his direction. Mr. Gilbert
and two New York architects will
shortly visit the quarry as guests
of the company.
Summing up the outlook, there
are contracts in sight, practically
acsured to us, aggregating over
$1,000,000. Mr. Herron wired us a
few days ago that contracts which
he can close in the east will be sufficient to make a railway necessary
lo the quarry, and will keep the
quarry drills years to come, while
a mill 10 times larger than the
present one will he necessary.
These results of his efforts are not
astounding when one remembers
that we have the only deposit of
this stone, of anything more than
a fragmentary nature, in all the
Shocking Lot* and  Suffering of Canadian
The frightful sufferings and losses
sustained hy the volunteer Canadian soldiers in South Africa are
being gradually brought home to
the people of this country by the
harrowing stories contained in letters from the survivors. The Royal
Canadian regiment, which constituted the first of the contingent sent
out by the Dominion to the aid of
Britain in South Africa, has been
so decimated that an officer who
wrote from Wynberg on May 5���
and what must be the conditions
two months later I���reports that
the roll-call that day showed only
374 men out of 1,035 who left Canada. Some companies had only
one   officer   left.    Though    many
Canadians lefl their bones on the
different battlefields, the heaviest
losces are thoce caiit-ed by dii-eiise,
the deadly enteric fever having
claimed an enormous, number of
victims. A very large proportion
of the cases prove fatal, and on the
day that Captain Rogers wrote the
letter referred to, 40 men had heen
sent to the hospital, and 70 more
were to go on the following day.
The Ottawa company of the regiment had been reduced to lees than
40 men. A Quebec volunteer writing home relates, as illustrative of
what the Canadians have had to endure, that the hair of two or three
of his acquaintances, mere hoys,
has turned quite gray during the
campaign, and that others have lost
their hair and become quite bald.

The Hlch Pierre Lake Mining District Seeking a Wagon Road to Cascade.
The Pierre Lake mining district
is rapidly coming to the front as
one of the richest and most extent-he in the Colville reservation. A
large number of very pr> mining
claims have heen exploited with
energy, and many of ihe prospects
are proving to be extremely valuable mineral deposits; not only
prospects, but mines thai have attaint! prominent attention in the
mining world. Among these may
be mentioned the First Thought",
Easter Sunday, Sunday Morning,
Gold Bug. Helen E., Big Iron,
King William, Little Jim and
many others of much promise.
This camp is only seven or eight
miles from Cascade, and the owners
of the various properties are anxious to have a wagon road built
out to the Kettle river at the
Baulne place in order to secure
railway connection at Cascade.
From Pete Pierres via the head of
the lake to Baulne's would shorten
the distance between Cascade ami
Bossburg some five or six miles,
and would prove of immense benefit net only to the mine owners, but
to Cascade, as the products of the
mines would be transported hither
for shipment, and many of the
supplies would be procured here.
The distance form Bossburg to the
camp is between eighteen and
twenty miles. This is an important matter to this community, and
the project should be given every
possible encouragement. The proposed new road passes across the
wonderful marble fields of i he-
United Sfates Marble company

A Nelson grocer recently found a
case egg bearing the following mercenary offer. "The young man
that gets this nice large egg, if he
has lots' of money and wants a nice
girl, write to Miss Mary McBeth,
S Ont."    Modesty   is  a virtue,
virtue is its own reward, and the
wages of sin is a seal, kin jacket,
but as Bill Johtn'on says:
Sometimes the biggest fishes
Bites bin! BUiatlosl kind of units,
Ami mighty ugly wiiiiinin
Can make the bent of mates.
The gentleman' with the shop egg
will probably decide to patronise
local industry.    Avaunl,  McBeth.
Olive Schreiner "as was" takes
the trouble to remark that she is
heartily ashamed of her English
decent. Yes, the great descent of
this particular Olive branch, is just
what's the matter. Schreiner too,
does not appear quite as English
as some names are, so I suppose
she infers there is something unsatisfactory about her maternal parentage. Urn! Well, we have another name in this country for that
little trouble.
Princess ��Agnes Salin-Salm is
another lady like Olive Schreiner,
who pretends to know a whole lot
about Boers and such. I think the
princess was born in Chicago, per-
habs that's why. But there are
Boers, and boars, and bores also.
In the July Metropolitan, which,
as it in irony was issued some little
time after the Transvaal capital
was taken, she says���"Before the
British reach Pretoria, they will
have to shoot down the Boer
women iu thousands. Is it not a
terrible prospect ?" That's the
kind of "rot" a free and independent Republic has to put up with
when it goes and buys its war
critiques from an American Princess. And after all. what a waste
of sentiment ! Those beautiful,
brave Boer women were much safer
in Pretoria, in British military
hands, than they would have been,
at the same moment, or even now
riding tram cars in peaceful St.
Louis, under the protection of the
glorious republic of the United
States of America. And now for
the remainder of her royal life; the
Princess Salni-Salm will hate old
Britain worse th<��n ever; for the
mortification resulting from her
own lamentable lack of sense and
knowledge, will be infinitely more
real than any she felt on Boer
women's account, leaving her a
laughing stock and a false prophet
in the eyes of all, and with a roost
uncomfortable feeling that even
a residence In Porkopolis and a
wide knowledge of pig killing
doesn't qualify a lady to be a Boer
war critic.
Diplomacy?   Despise the name;
Despise that "diplomatic" Power,
That semis a sister Queen to shame,
That strangles Princes in her Tower,
That courts tlie rich, that robs the poor,
That scorns tho weak, yet bends the knee
To strength, that begs from door to door���
And calls it all diplomacy !
We will not tliis.   No midnight way I
We could not match this if we would;
We would not match this if we could;
For Us, full, friink, white day.
That's one of a series of fourth
of July squibs of the usual fizz
and bang, and a bad smell and a
blinded eve type. Joaquin Miller
compounded it and eight others,
the same, only more so. Anyone
who knows poor old Joaquin, will
recognise every word if it, ��nd find
therein his embodiment, liver, sorehead, boots and old umbrella included.
Besides, Miller needn't think he's
the only true American patriot.
There are others. I once met one
myself called Ferraro. He l<new
more about tea and Boston Harbor
thai; any merchant or mariner who
ever breathed. He told me a whole
lot of things, which as an Englishman, I had been lamentably ignorant of. I felt quite sorry for the
way he had been treated. I looked
upon him as a combined Pilgrim
father ami a brave lad of Lexington, who had somehow contrived
to renew his hill like the Eagle.
Then I made enquiries. They were
disappointing. His father was an
Italian railroader, and his mother
an Irish cook, and if a certain emigrant ship had gone to the bottom
in 1860, he never would have heen
"Johnny Graham shot a cougar
near Cascade the oilier day; it
measured 11 feet 4 inches, from tip
of nose to tip of tail." says the
Grand Forks Gazette. I've sent
that clipping to the English
"Field" and if, bye and bye, a tribe
of tender feet armed with elephant
rifles and maxim guns, swarm over
the face of this district; please
blame Johnny and his gun, not me.
But say, Johnny, just on the quiet
now, did you by any chance happen to include the four feet when
you were measuring that hide?
The Kamloops Standard is asking heaven to save it from its
friends. It says the Conservatives
pat it on the back and send their
ads to the opposition; and if some-
bodv doesn't look out, it will run
a? an independent paper in future,
and seek cash instead of glory.
Then the Silvertonian with an
independence that is also refreshing and is evidently gaining ground
in B. C, tells its patrons a few
home truths also. The editor says
he finds he has to be very economic
with the truth, he once got into jail
for telling it.   He does contrive to
make a few pertinent remarks
though. "Facts are chiels that
winna ding." The Silvertonian reminds me of The Northern Miner
of Queensland. Long years ago the
editor, Thaddeus O'Kane, was sued
and compelled to retract for libelling a fellow-townsman. The next
issue that appeared contained one
reference only to the matter, and
that was in long primer type, heavily leaded. "The thumb screws
were applied to Galileo and he was
made to say the world was flat,
nevertheless the fact remains the
world is round."
Talking about papers, there t'.re
three of them in Vancouver. The
World, the Flesh, and the Devil,
and they're each holding one hand
aloft in holy horror at the Chinese
atrocities, and with the other cheerfully beckoning to Tommy Atkins
to travel by the Vancouver route to
the front. They say Tommy will
die if he goes through the Red Sea.
"So we'll thank you, Mr. Atkins, if
you'll please to step this way."
Well, Tommy'll come all right,and
Tommy'l! go all right, and Tommy'll get there all right, you bet, in
spite of his superior officers.
And I wish I could go with him,
but. I can't, So I've" let my cousin
Jim go instead. The pen's mightier

caustic instead of ink, and if he

The Phoenix Pioneer estimates

Mr. Baulne .Jays that according
to his judgment, based on the experience <f past years, the salmon
should come up the river this season. It is usually understood to
be a question of the stale of the

Great Confidence in Her Husband.
Well may Lord George Hamilton, Secretary of State for India,
describe the present famine as the
worst of the century. The stories
of death, disease and despair are
simply heart rending, and the efforts made for relief enormous. In
the House of Commons recently,
Lord George declared that ihe
whole financial resources of India
would he used if necessary, in combating the famine and its effects,
and if those funds were insufficient,
then the Chancellor of the Exchequer of Great Britain would
make good the deficiency. At present there was no lack of funds, the
charitable contributions being sufficient. That is a good, healthy,
cheery, reply to make to those who
would blame England for one of
her direst misfortunes.
"If they be not deer to me, what

The late Mrs. Gladstone's implicit
confidence in her husband's ability
���which amounted almost to a
belief in his infallibility���is well
illustrated in the following anecdote: During the troublous times of
1885, just before the fall of Khartoum and the murder of Chinese
Gordon, which were really the
cause of the defeat of the Gladstone
ministry a little later, a statesman
high in the councils of the Liberal
party, called at Mr. Gladstone's
residence, and was cordially received by his wife. He was in a
lugubrious frame of mind,and spoke
dismally of the situation. "Ah,
Mrs. Gladstone," he began, "these
are dreadful times. The clouds are
very thick. We can only remem-
her that there is One above who
will help us in all our troubles,
and that he will guide us out of
our difficulties." "Oh, ye��," replied Mrs. Gladstone, with great
cheerfulness, "he is up stairs shaving just now, but he'll be down directly."

The impression obtains generally
among provincial politicians that
Sir Wilfrid Laurier, Premier of the
Dominion Government, will visit
Biitish Columbia this summer, after the adjournment of parliament,
and remain several weeks. It is
said that he will be accompanied
by at least one other prominent
Liberal leader, and that they come
to make an effort to disentangle
and unravel the political snarl
which the Liberals of the province
have gotten themselves into. The
astute leader will find such an undertaking one befet with many and
serious difficulties. If he can succeed in retiring a host of self-con
stituted peanut headed politicians
who immagine themselves natural
born leaders, he may attain a degree of success in the way of the reorganization of the Liberal party
of British Columbia. Party lines
should be thoroughly established,
and individual partisans taught to
gracefully bow to the will of the
majority. Coalition governments
always were and always will be
failures. Right principles and a
united party behind them will
make the elective franchise one to
be honored and appreciated. Individual politics begets disorganization ami confusion, t.f which the
voters of this province have had
quite enough.
In August there will he an excursion from Spokane to Rossland and
Nelson under the auspices of the
Chamber of Commerce of the former city. Our sister town Greenwood, always alert to the best interests of her citizens, has invited
ihe Spokane party to extend its
pleasure trip to that Boundary city.
It was a wise aud timely step to
take, nnd it would be eminently
proper and wise for the Spokane
Chamber of Commerce to accept
the invitation and continue its
journey over the C. & W. branch
of Ihe C. P. R. into this new and
rapidly developing country. Spokane has enjoyed and is still enjoying profitable commercial relations with this section, and its occupants would appreciate such a
visit, and certainly make it a pleasant and profitable one to the visitors.
'Ihe provisioning of an army
that may he sent against China
will be a very serious matter. The
country produces very little that
-can  be utilized, so that supplies
will have to be drawn from other
points. We would naturally expect
America to furnish a very large
portion of the breadstuff's and
meats. From present indications
the foreign army iu China must be
large not only temporarily, but for
many years to come. Even if some
sort of peace is patched up, the Occidental powers can never again
permit their people in that country
to remain practically undefended.
The consequence will be the inauguration of a great commerce across
the Pacific Ocean.
Complaints have been made that
some persons are destroying fish iu
Christina lake by means of dynamite. This, besides being a most
dastardly and unsportsman like
proceeding, is an offence punishable with severe penalties, and offenders if caught will not escape lightly. Set-lines and other illegal contrivances are also said to be used.
It is iu the interest of ail true lovers of sport that these illegal practices should be promptly stopped,
and tbat the game laws generally
should be strictly observed. It is
the duty of all to co-operate in this
matter, and any breach of the laws
should be at once brought to the
attention of the authorities. Offenders, therefore, beware.

He said, in part : "In a fair,
square, up and down fight between
the unions and capital, if you do
not through the legislature get your
rights, I am afraid that the trades
unions and laborers will get the
worst of it. There is much legislation which you ought to support,
but I will say that I think it a mistake to run distinctively labor candidates, because had the laboring
people in the last election supported
the party that had their interests
most at heart, you would lo-day
have a government at Victoria
which could be considered in every
respect the true friend of labor, tbe
sincere, honest frieni' of labor, a
government more your friend iii
every respect than any province in
Canada has ever seen. I say you
should go into politics and when
an election comes round you should
consider which party on the whole
ts most likely to help you, and not
run separate candidates. There is
no doubt that, if you wished it, the
candidate that you selected would
be elected."

A Large Franklin Camp Report.
While on a prospecting trip tn
McKinley camp nn the eiuH fork of

Meyers located 11 claim which he
called the Standard. On the surface there was very little rhowing
lieyond some float ai d decomposed
and broken quartz, hilt after digging down for five feet, a solid
ledge of quartz whh hi ruck.
Since he returned to the city,
Mr. Myers ha* had assays taken
from sampled of this lead, and has
obtained the astonishing returns of
$1,422 per ton. It a few more assays like that can he obtained, it
may pay him to try hammering
the gold out with an ax.���Grand

Something new,
Something neat,
Something sweet,
At the concert to-night.
Rev. Father Palmer conducted
religious services in Cascade Wednesday morning.
The Columbia Review iB now
dead for the third time Maybe
like a cat it has nine lives.
James Nesbit, who had been in
Republic two or three months, returned to Cascade a few days since.
Mr. Stanley Mayall, who so kindly and ably edited The Record last
.week, in the absence of the regular
pencil-pusher, was in Rossland a
few days this week.
Grand Forks has disposed of its
recent bond issue at par to Messrs.
Coffee & Stratum, of the To rout ������
Trust and Guarantee company, who
took the entire amount and advanced $25,000 at once. The city
will complete its electric lighting
and water systems.
Grand Forks journalists appropriate everything within a hundred
miles of their town which may pos
sibly redound to its credit, but tliev
draw the iine at cougars. The Gazette says: Johnny Graham shut
a cougar near Cascade the other
day. It was one of the largest ever
seen in this section, and measured
11 feet 4 inches from tip of nose to
tip of tail.
During his spare time Mr. W. C.
Simmons is experimenting in the
an photographic. He has a fine
kodak and is producing some most
excellent portraitures of local scenery. Among them is a street, scene
in the vicinity of the custom h .use
and Hotel Cascade, the lower railway bridge with a passing train on
it, several of the gorge and falls in
the river between the wagon-road
bridge and the upper railway bridge,
and some taken in the up-country
mining camps.
The people of Cascade claim thai
a trail can be put into Franklin
camp from that place by way of
���Gladstone for $200. But they dmi't
seem to be putting it in, says the
G. F. Gazette. We do not do things
here by "seem to." This country is
suffering to-day from the effects of
a "seem to," which was and is not
what it seems. Dollars to dongh-
nutB Cascade gets to Franklin camp
before Grand Forks. We are not
making ourselves ridiculous with
"bombastic stories, but you just
watch our smoke.
One must closely watch current
events in the Boundary to keep
track of the rapid newspaper
changes.    The   Daily   Times   of
Greenwood has suspended publication, and also the weekly Grand
Forks Miner. During all the journalistic wrecks that have taken
place in the Boundary, The Cascade Record has never missed an
issue, nor a meal. The suspensions
and changes in the newspaper field,
however, do not lie in any fault of
the times or country, but rather in
lack of well conceived plans of
management. When Ben Franklin
asked his father for help to start a
newspaper he said "No; there were
already three newspapers in America, and the field was fully occupied."
Tuesday was pay-day at the
works of the Cascade Water Power
and Light Co. There was music in
the air that night and a lull iu the
operations next day, owing tn a
tired feeling experienced by some
.if the operatives.
Drs. Ferguson & Ritchie are now
prepared to cure all the ills of this
and surrounding neighborhoods.
They have placed in stock an extensive line <>f standard patent
medicines. Remember, there is no
wealth one would not gladly exchange for health. Many cling to
the former till the hitter has drifted
beyond their reach.
Tbe Concert and Entertainment To-night.
