Mail Route to Gladstone.
The enterprising residents of
Gladstone have been endeavoring
for some time to get a mail route
established between Brooklyn and
Cascade, and post offices located at
Gladstone and English Point, on
Christina lake. Inspector Fletcher
asked for tenders from the stage
lines for carrying the mails twice a
week, and they were put in. Wills'
stage line had the lowest bid, but
it was considered too high by the
department. Accordingly new bids
were put in, which it is expected
will be soon acted upon.
If the route is established it is
likely that W. Forrest, J. P., of
Gladstone, will receive the appointment of postmaster, which it is
needless to say will give general

Mr. RoBe. especially as it carried
with it an increase of salary���a
matter that should have been attended to long ago, if the volume
of business and amount of money
handled here are any criterion.
The telegram from Minister of
Customs Patterson, at Ottawa, also
conveyed the information that Mr.

although much has been accomplished during,the last week, with
the able assistance of Mr. Shaw of
the Nelson office.
Ae> showing the importance of
the custom house, and the immense
volume of business handled here, it
is interesting to learn that 'the collections for four days of this last
week, amounted to nearly $5,000.
and a check for that amount has
been forwarded to the department
at Ottawa. This should certainly
be sufficient to satisfy the powers
that be that additional help and
increased facilities at this office are
positively needed.

by Government Agent Leonard

three nominations, and consequently no poll was required.

Stocker, townsite agent; John Earle,
mill man, and F. Elkins, late provincial constable. There being no
other nominations by 11 a. m. the
above were duly declared elected by

Death from Paralysis.
Henry Gatau died this morning,
at six o'clock, from the effects of a
stroke of paralysis, at the Grand
Central hotel. He had been working for some time at his trade of a
carpenter for Ira Black, and was
engaged to make the coffin for
James Carroll, who died a few days
since. Early yesterday morning
he was stricken down in the rear of

Hanager Whyte Says So
Manager Whyte,of the Canadian
Pacific railway, has informed a
Montreal paper that his company
has decided to erect a 1,000-ton
smelter in the Boundary Creek
country, and that the work of construction will be commenced forthwith. The point at which the
smelter will be located has not
been decided on, but it is the intention of the company to select a
site that will be convenient to th.
minet. of the district.
It is hoped that this report is
true, says the Rossland Miner. If
it is, southeast Yale will soon be
the scene of great mining activity,
the like of which has never been
witnessed in the west. It has been
proved beyond all doubt that there
are immense bodies of copper and
copper-gold ore in the Boundary
Creek country. During the past 18
months the numerous mineral properties of that section have been
systematically and extensively
devoloped and many claims have
been brought beyond the prospect
stn^e. The dumps show thousands
of tons of shipping ore, and the
workings in not a few instances
admit of heavy stoping. In short
the district only needs smelter facilities to at once become a large
producer of mineral wealth. It
will take fome time to construct
these reduction works, but if the
company commences to build now,
they will be ready to treat the ores
of the surrounding country by the
time the Robson-Penticton railway
is completed. The establishment
of these two conveniences is all
that is necessary, and from thence
on the Boundary Creek country
can take care of itself.
D. C. Beach has gone over to
Rossland on business in connection
with his Baker creek claims.
Smith Curtis, of Rossland was a
visitor twice this week to Cascade,
in connection with the contract recently let on the Pay Ore.
Charlie Willarson and Pete Johnson paid Gladstone a visit this
week. They have a number of
claims near Gladstone which they
expect to develop this coming season.
Bob Cramer, one of our best
known and most successful local
prospectors, went over to Rossland
this week on a holiday trip. Billy
Morrison, his partner, is wintering
iu the metropolis.
Mr. C. H. Thomas and Mr. Shep-
pard of the contractor's store, have
purchased the Nemo from Willarson & Johnson. This claim adjoins
the Shamrock mountain at the
head of Baker creek, and has a
good surface showing.
J. A. Seaman, mining partner
with H. A. Denton of Cascade, is
wintering at Mission, near Wenat-
chee, Wash., where he owns a large
stock ranch. Mr. Seaman writes
that he will be on hand early next
spring to assist Mr. Denton in continuing work on the Red Chief
group near Gladstone. Assays
from this property give returns as
high as $28 in gold and 5| percent
Frank Hutchinson hasquitwork
on the Elmore and gone over to
Rossland on a visit. Smith Curtis
who is assisting Frank in the development of the Elmore goes east
shortly and expects to place the
Elmore or Belcher Co's stock on
the market. It is their intention
to commence operations in earnest
on the Elmore early next Spring.
If surface indications go for anything the Elmore will make amine.
After January First.
On and after. .January 1st the
new customs regulations changing
the forms of oaths and declarations
of importers will go into effect.
After that date importers will be
required to declare that each invoice represents the actual transaction and that the value shown
on entry, not invoice, exhibits the
fair market value of the goods sold
for home consumption in the country of export.
Leased the Stage Line.
Bell & Duncan's stage now leaves
Cascade for Grand Forks at 8 a. m.
instead of 7:30, as formerly. This
concern has secured the Elkins
stable- by lease for a term of six
months, and have sent C. C. Ringel
to Cascade to take charge.
Is a Long Freight Haul.
W. J. Francis started on Wednesday with a team for Penticton,
to get some much needed Christmas goods that a bungling shipping clerk had sent that way from
Vancouver. It was the only way
to get them here in time, and will
be pretty costly to some one.

Kenneth P. Mattheson, of Cascade, is pleased with the work the
railway contractors have been
doing for him. The railway survey passes over three of his Castle
mountain claims, the Great Western, Paragon and Wigwam. On
the Paragon the railway men have
already crosscut a twenty foot iron
capped lead. On the Wigwam he
has found an iron lead fourteen
feet wide on which he intends to do
some work soon. The best showing
however, is on the Great Western
from which assays giving ten per
cent, copper and $6" in gold have
been obtained.
Perhaps it is not generally known,
but it is true nevertheless, that the
Christina lake district can boast of
having among its residents one of
the best swimmers in the world,
in the person of Charlie Sander.
Charlie is a "typo" by profession
and has held down a case in several of America's big cities. At the
World's Fair he won several swimming championships, and shortly
after emigrated to Christina lake,
at the north end of which he owns
a fine ranch and prospective summer resort, besides a number of
mineral claims. Charlie has a
guest up at his ranch this winter,
in the person of young Joe Lang of
Chicago. Joe, who is an old friend
of Charlie's, is a professor of yard
sticks, having worked for years in
one of the great Chicago depar-
timentals. He was in poor health
when he reached here a few months
ago, but now he is robust and strong
as a young giant. Joe has a genial disposition and is an excellent
musician. Joe says this country is
good enough for anybody as it is,
but if there were a few Chicago
girls around the district would be a
paradise on earth.
Peter Carroll Dead.
Last Wednesday afternoon about
4 o'clock, Peter Carroll, an old
man, who has been acting as porter
at Black's hotel for a month past,
died in that house of pneumonia.
He had been ill for some days with
erysiplelas, but was not thought to
be dangerous. His son, however,
was Bent for to Grand Forks, and
arrived in time to be with his father when he died. Mr. Carroll leaves
a wife and family in Walla Walla
in poor circumstances. A collection was taken up to defray funeral
expenses, and nearly every business man approached donated with
willingness. The funeral took
place on Thursday.
Mr. Carroll was an old hotel
man. Years ago he was connected
with the Merchants Hotel in St.
Paul and later managed the International in the same city. Then
he had hotels all through the Dakota* and finally worked his way
to the Pacific Northwest. He was
well known among the old-line
travellers. He died at the age of
55. *

SATURDAY, DEC. 17, 1898.
The Boundary country is on the
eve of an era of prosperity, the like
of which has never been seen before
in British Columbia. For years
mining men of determination and
push have steadily and quietly
gone on developing and showing up
the mammoth gold-copper lodes of
this country, confident that time
would justify and reward them for
their confidence in the district. For
years they have clamored for transportation facilities, and their requirements in this important matter are being complied with. A
railway is being constructed through
the very centre of the mineral belt
as quickly as unlimited capital can
accomplish it.
All this means an era of good
times, of which we have only Been
the beginning. The district, in its
gigantic ledges of mineral, almost
surpasses belief. But they are here
in very truth, and will be the source
of great wealth to the entire district
and to the province. The railway
��� now building is only a beginning
-a starter as it were. Plans are
now maturing���to be made public
shortly���that will almost gridiron
the Boundary country with railways and branch lines. There
will be no more crying out for
transportation facilities, as it is
practically already here.
What is needed now is development, and it is going on at a surprising rate. The ore tonnage from
the Boundary district will be a
genuine surprise, in our opinion, to
even old timers in this country.
Capital in the east and to the south
is waking up and realizing to some
extent, the size of the fortunes tied
up in our mountains. It is coming
out here with increasing confidence,
and will, beyond a doubt, reap its
own reward. An era of prosperity
is just dawning.
Hon. J. Fred Hume, provincial
secretary and minister of mines,
has requested gold commissioners,
mining recorders and others to send
him such suggestions as it would
seem best to make, as regards
changes in the mineral act. The
idea is an excellent one, for while
it is not likely that a tithe of the
suggestion? will be acted upon by
the legislature, yet some ideas for
the better, along the lines indicated, ought to be brought out.
All mining men agree that the
act is far from satisfactory in its
present form, and yet any changes
must be such as will benefit the
many and not the few. In other
words, the welfare of the trail-
blazer and prospector muBt be
looked after as well as that of the
capitalist and investor.
In several sections meetings have
been called to consider and recommend changes, and great interest
has always been evinced. Among
other things that ought to be considered are claim jumping, reduction of recording fees, unlimited
locations by one person, lawB governing corporations, assessments,
etc. Our legislators will be watched
closely as ti their standing on
these matters when they come up
for consideration by the provincial
the rushes. In 1889 Colorado and
old Mexico saw the miners come in
crowds. From these precedents he
anticipates a great year in 1899.
On Christmas day���next Sunday
week���imperial penny postage goes
into effect; That is to say, if one
wiBhes to send a letter from Cascade to Cape Town or Australia, it
can be done for two cents; but if
the letter goes to Grand Forks or
Rossland, it still costs three cents.
Postmaster-General Mulock has not
yet explained, so far as has been
reported in the public press, this
paradoxical state of affairs.
However, Mr. Mulock certainly
deserves and will receive great
credit for originating the imperial
penny postage idea, which is so
soon to be adopted. It cannot but
assist materially in bringing the
many widely separated parts of this
vast empire closer together, and
cement them firmer than ever before. It is a step in the right direction, and while it may not prove
profitable at first from a monetary
point of view, its effects for the
good of the empire will be far reaching and will be felt in due time.
The treaty of peace, between
Spain and the United States has
finally been signed at Paris. One
of the prominent features of the
closing scene of this one-sided
drama was the scramble for the
pens with which the famous document was signed. The relic hunter
always gets in his fine work on
such occasions

Nearly every town in this part
of the country is to have a smelter
on paper. But very little is heard
of Cascade in this connection. It
is as well, however, to remember
that the hunter who is after game
does not hunt ducks with a brass
band. He's not built that way.
No let up on the Heady sawing of
wood will be noticed, nevertheless.
Cascade has the necessary power
and the location for a smelter���
something that no other town in
the district possesses.
Everyone who comes into the
Boundary from the States or the
Kootenays must now and in times
to come, pass through Cascade. It
is well named the Gateway City.
The appointment of George C.
Rose as collector at the sub-port of
Cascade i�� a just recognition of
merit on the part of the minister of
customs, and one that will meet
with the approval of most of our
citizens. Since being located at
Cascade as a preventative officer,
Mr. Rose has really been performing the duties of a sub-collector.
The appointment is in the regular
line of promotion.

A mining man who claims to
know, states that a great mining
rush is due next year. He says
that these rushes come every ten
years, and therefore always with a
year ending with a 9. Thus the
first great California rush was in
1849. The Fraser river rush was
in 1859. The rush of 1869 was to
Nevada, being started by the Corn-
stock discovery. In 1879 Colorado
and New Mexico were the scenes of

Since *4q Every Year Ending With 9
Has Witnessed Excitement.
One of the oldest of the old timers
spun this half prophetic yarn to a
Spokane reporter:
"Every ten years we have a mining excitement in this country.
These events have beenj occurring
regularly every year that ends with
the figure 9 since the eventful year
of '49, when the famous rush to
California took place. There has
not been a single break in all that
time. There have been rushes between times, but the nine years
never miss. Some of the rushes,
stampedes, excitements- -call them
what you like--have been more
noteworthy than others, but all
have been of such importance as to
stamp the year plainly upon the
memory of mining men who participated in the events.
"Now I mention this because I
feel it in my bones, see it in the
signs of the times, scent it in the air
around me that the rush which is
due next year will start in the
early spring. It's coming, sure as
fate. Now, just look over the past
50 years, and 6ee if my theory of
these periodical mining stampedes
is not correct. One of you at least,
can remember the rush to California in '49, when 150,000 men dared
perils of plain and sea to reach the
scene of Marshall's discovery. Ten
years later, in 1859, the miners of
California stampeded to Fraser
tiver iu British Columbia. It was
a mighty rush, and one that was
well rewarded. It was a Yankee
rush too, I believe between 75,000
and 100,000 men went to the Fraser
and the districts north of it in that
"The two stampede? which I
have mentioned were caused by
discoveries of placer gold. The one
of the next decade was a quartz
excitement, and was due to the discovery and development of the
great Comstock ledge at Virginia
City, Nev., a ledge which set the
world to talking. The rush of '99
will be like it.
" Silver had its innings ajain in
1879, when the tide of mining excitement set strongly toward Lead-
ville. But in that same year the
free-milling gold ledges of Tombstone, Ariz., also attracted many.
"The last excitement we "had
upon a year ending with the figure
9 was caused by the famous Har-
qua Hala gold mines on the Colorado river, and the silver mines at
Chihuahua, Mexico, both of which
events occurred in 1889, and caused
many thousands of old time prospectors and miners to get the stampede frenzy in their veins once
"I am not alone in the belief
that these rushes come every ten
years. You will find many an old-
time prospector and miner who remembers the stirring years I have
mentioned, who is looking forward
to the coming year as one which
will see the world stirred again
with the intense interest in mines."
First Grave in Cascade.
A lonely grave enclosed by a
neat picket fence, just acrops the
river on the bench land and close
by the Dewdney trail, marks the
last resting place of Sam Swanson,
a pioneer prospector. His was the
first white man's grave dug in this
vicinity. Swanson came from Vir-
den, Man., to Trail during the
spring of '96.    In Virden he had
built and owned the Grand Central,
the first hotel erected in that town.
But business reverses came and
he movod west, leaving his wife
behind. He did not meet with
much success in Trail, and the following spring, '97, he came out
here along with Cameron Brothers
to prospect.
He had only prospected a few
days when he was taken ill up in
the Lallah Rookh cabin on Castle
mountain. He received every attention that his fellow prospectors
could give, and it was not thought
that his condition was dangerous.
But on the third day of his sickness he died suddenly, the trouble,
it seems, being in flammation of the
bowels. A coflin was provided and
his friends, by dint of indurance,
carried him from the mountain.
The funeral Kervices were read by
W. McKay, the carpenter, and were
quite impressive, the handful of
pioneers then in the neighborhood
being all present.
Swanson was 47 years old and
was admired by those who knew
him for his sterling qualities. His
widow now residep at Ashcroft,
where she has relatives.
Development to Begin.
J. W. O'Brien, who recently sold
out his interests in Rossland, arrived in the city Thursday. He is interested with D. C. Beach in several
Baker creek prospects, and will
arrange shortly to begin work on
those promising properties. Mr.
O'Brien has already put in considerable cash in developing these
properties and believes he has a
good thing. When work is started
it will be on the yictoria, and will
be continued all winter.

Apropos the much talked of
Mother Lode group of free milling
gold claims in the Burnt Hasin,
and its co-owner, Mike Shick- -
whose name is a familiar one in
West Kootenay���it might, perhaps,
be interesting to Record readers to
know just how Shick happened to
stub his toes against the free gold
quartz of the Mother Lode. It
came about this way : A year ago
last summer he cast his fortunes
with the Snowdrift and a couple of
associate claims, things having
gone bad with him on Murphy
creek���in other words, the Murphy
creek iron caps were not yielding a
revenue commensurate with the
idea of a man who wouldn't stand
pat with anything short of aces.
The Snowdrift, which lies on the
top of the mountain which forms
the McCrea creek boundary of the
Burnt Basin, was, and is yet a big
proposition, but it is not a child's
nursing bottle. Tons of iron ore,
carrying high values in copper, bestrewed the sides of the mountain
from McCrea creek clear up to the
Snowdrift ground, and in a matter-
of-fact way Shick reasoned that
he had found the reclining spot of
the "fickle goddess," and all that
remained for him to do was a little
wooing with the pick and shovel.
* *
Shick left Rossland early last
May, accompanied by Marshall
Jackson, a kindred spirit, who like
himself, had followed prospecting
for many moons, and knew what it
was to have dame fortune smile as
well as frown. They came to Cascade, and, after purchasing supplies, engaged C. H. May, the liveryman, to pack the outfit to the
Snowdrift, where they expected to
spend the season in trying to prove
the Snowdrift a mine. They left
Cascade early in the morning intending to reach their destination
that night, but the trail waB heavy
with spring mud and the cayuses
not equal to the emergency. About
a mile beyond the Edison cabin,
on the east fork of Josh creek, and
about two and a half miles from
their destination, a big snow bank
was encountered and the cayuses
quit. It was already growing dark.
Aft r unpacking the animals they
pitched tent on a dry knoll above
the ravine. In the morning, while
Jackson was cooking breakfast and
the cnyuse man was limbering up
his live stock, Shick sallied forth
to see what kind of float the mountain above was in the habit of parting with. Before many minutes a
large piece of rose colored quartz
arrested his attention. Returning
to the tent he drew a rock hammer
from one of the packs and proceeded to demolish the quartz.
Jackson had breakfast ready
when Shick again put in his appearance. But it was not the same
Shick who left the cabin a short
half hour before. It was the Mike
Shick of palmy days, minus the
No. 10 gaiters, flowing broadcloth,
plug hat, immaculate shirt front
and gold headed cane; the wrinkles
of age had all left his manly bn.w,
and smiling as only Mike can
smile, he handed a piece of quartz
to his partner, remarking, "ldreamed about thip stuff last night."
This was the free gold quartz that
awakened Rosslands interest in the
Burnt Basin.    That boulder  was

R. T. Daniel, one of the pioneers

last Thursday, taking in the district. Mr. Daniel is a man who
has been identified with Kootenays

with Shakespeare that the time to
act is when the chance is presented.
This he proved only the other day,
when nut in East Kootenay on the
C. P. R. business men's excursion.
The train stopped at Fernie, the
coal town, for two hours, and most
of the visitors went to look at the
coal mines. But |Mr. Daniel did
not. Instead he sized up the town
itself and did a little stroke of busi-
nes on the side. During the brief
stop, he bought several lots, let a
contract for a building and actually
leased the buildinc���all inside of
two short hours. He did not know

John B. Wilson, the Kaslo merchant, who visited Cascade this
week, was addicted to the newspaper
habit before he took to merchandising in the Kootenays. Although
a native of Canada, he has lived in
the States, having been connected
with the Salt Lake Tribune, the
old Spokane Review, the Fairhaven
Herald and others. It was while
with the latter that he was struck
by lightning as it were; that is, he
got $15,000 in the Louisiana lottery.
Then he went to Kaslo in the '92
boom, and at different times has
stores at Three Forks, Nakusp,
Duncan City and Sanca, when each
of those towns���now in a semi-
moribund state���seemed to have a
bright future. Even Kaslo now is
too quiet for him and he is out
prospecting for a new location.
Special Postal Notice.
The Record has received notice,
dated Dec. 2nd, from R. M. Coulter,
deputy postmaster-general at Ottawa, that no parcel can be sent
from Canada to any other country
by parcel post, unless accompanied
by a customs declaration, setting
forth the nature and value of the
contents. As the acceptance of a
parcel without such customs declaration, setting forth the nature
and value of the contents, will mean
its consignment to the dead letter
office, the advice is given to postmasters to accept no such parcels,
and to the public to govern themselves accordingly.

New Station Agent Has an Exciting
Last Monday evening Bossburg
had a sensation. It occurred at
9:45 at the railway station. J. C.
Williams, former , agent of the
Spokane Falls and Northern road,
at Marcus, arrived on the noon
train to take charge of the Bossburg
station, succeeding W. T. O'Brien.
Auditor J. T. Critchett, who was
making the transfer of the station,
had been in the office all the evening with Mr. Williams and Operator Morris McCarty. Shortly after
9 o'clock Mr. Critchett left the
ottiee, and a few moments later
Williams and McCarty, who were
standing with their backs to the
ticket window, were startled by a
command coining from behind
them to throw up their hands. At
first, however, they believed it to
be an attempt at a joke by an
acquaintance, and paid no attention to the firsi or second command.
The third was accompanied by
the click of the revolver and four
arms went up as one. The robbers
immediately asked that they be
told the combination of the safe
but as Williams had not yet been
given it he could not comply with
the request.
One of the robbers then stepped
to the safe and tried the knob and
was surprised to find the safe door
unlocked. While the second highwayman covered with his revolver
the two thoroughly frightened employes, the first kicked to pieces
the two wooden drawers of the safe
and appropriated everything contained therein. What amount of
booty was secured it is impossible
to say, but nothing was left behind.
The robbers did not molest the
personal property of either Williams or McCarty, but left with the
remark : "Boys, you are all right."
The robbers were safely away before the alarm was given but

Some narrow minded individuals
have an idea that the sphere of the
local paper is limited by the boundaries of the town wherein it is
published. Still others���poor,
deluded souls���are sure that no
one reads it, and therefore representation in its . columns cannot
benefit their business. But there
is a little tale of recent occurrence
that points a moral to both the
above-mentioned persons, and it
came about in this wise.
As every one knows, the long
distance telephone system was
out of "whack" for several days.
That is, it could not be used to advantage by Boundary business men.
This, it was stated, was caused by
need of a new transmitter, which
had been sent for some time previously, but failed to arrive. Accordingly, the Record, in the issue
of December 3rd, called attention
to this exasperating condition of
affairs. A few days after the issue
had been mailed, Mr. Hodge, of
Nelson, received a message from
Vancouver, asking about the case,
and was blamed for the trouble.
-%���    ���
But it ib only fair to state that
Mr. Hodge was not to blame. He
ordered the required transmitter
from Vancouver when so requested.
It must be that the coast business
men have not yet learned where
Cascade is, for the package was
sent to Penticton, and calmly reposed in the Dominion Express
Co's office there for some time.
Finally it was found and forwarded
to Rossland, then to Northport.
Here it was held a couple of days
for a war tax (to help trounce the
dons) of ten cents. Finally it
reached Cascade, after a series of
vicissitudes only equalled by the
famous history of a cent.
Two important facts can be
learned from this story, the first of
which is that the Record is a thoroughly digested and widely read
paper; and second, that nine out
of ten of the coast merchants need
to take a course in the geography
of their own province. Apparently
*ome of them know as little about
it as they do of Central Africa. If
they had spent less time in fighting
the Kettle River Railway bill, and
more in cultivating the trade of
the mining districts, they would
now have both more business and
more friends here.
Several shipments for Cascade
from Vancouver have been sent via
Penticton of late���one to the
Record. In more than one case
the shipper will have the privilege
of paying the cost of getting the
goods from Penticton to Cascade
by team, a little item of five cents
per pound, that will, it is believed
set the Vancouverites to thinking.
And well it should, for a parallel
for such bungling in snipping
goods would, indeed, be difficult to
Provincial Constable Humphrey
holds the record for quick travelling in these:parts. At 2:15 last
Sunday afternoon he left Brooklyn
for Niagara to arrest Bernardo
Vincenzo, an Italian charged With
stabbing a fellow countryman on
Nov. 1st. Humphrey travelled by
the Wills stage line as far as Gladstone, reaching that town about 11
o'clock the same evening. There
he got a horse and came on to Cascade in a short time. Here he took
a cutter and reached Niagara by
7 o'clock the next morning, having
travelled all night. Going at once
to Pat Welch's camp, he found his
man, put the bracelets on him, and
started for Brooklyn, catching the
Wills stage on its return trip. If
there is a bitter or faster trip
known, over the same road, the
Record would like to hear of it.
Deal for Mother Lode.
Messrs. Trethewey and McKen-
zie, well known mining men and
residents of Kaslo, have been in the
Burnt Basin this w ek along with
Mike Shick, examining the Mother
Lode group. It seems that Shick
and Jackson who control the property have made a very satisfactory
deal subject to the report of Trethewey and McKenzie. Although
the snow is deep now in the Burnt
Basin tho experts will have little
difficulty in arriving at a conclusion, as the different quartz lodes
traversing the group have been
pretty well exploited and numerous cross cuts made. If the deal is
consummated sinking will be begun
at once on the principal free
milling lead, and the results will
be watched with keen interest, not
only by the other property owners
in the neighborhood, but by the
public in general, for the fame of
the Burnt Basin surface showings
has been sown broadcast.

Coming of Railways and Smelters
Harks It.
The news from Montreal, that
Jay Graves has formed a strong
company to build a large smelter
for the treatment of the ores from
the great ledges of the Old Iron*
sides and Knob Hill mines, marks
the beginning of a new era for the
mining camps of Boundary creek���
the productive era.
It has been known for three years
that the elements of great wealth
were present in that section. The
enormous ledges of gold and copper ores were the wonder of mining
men, and development which has
been steadily carried forward for
the past two years has demonstrated
the permanence of these ore bodies.
There have been wanting transportation and means of economical
treatment. The one will soon be
provided by the construction of the
Boundary Creek line of the Canadian Pacific ; the other will be
provided by the smelter to be built
by Mr. Graves' company.
These vast ore bodies were discovered by American prospector",
and they have been largely developed by American skill and capital.
Now Canadian interests are stepping in to reap the benefit. The
American lines will be shut out,
because they have shut themselves
out, because they lack the daring
energy of the Canadian Pacific.
It is hoped that President Hill
of the Great Northern is not so
intensely conservative as his recent
expressions on the subject of construction of branch lines would indicate. This northern country is
his natural field. In the Spokane
Falls & Northern he owns the only
American line penetrating the Kootenai country. That line ought to
be extended into the Boundary
district, and into Republic camp on
the Colville reservation.
There is such a thing as waiting
too long in railway contruction. A
point comes always in the growth
of a new country where development waits on transport "ion. That
point came in the Bou iry country, and the Canadian !ric has
come forward to bridge ths gulf.
Henceforth there will be no more
lagging. New spirit will possess
labor and capita], and we may look
for a season of great activity and
large production.
What the Canadian Pacific is
doing for the mining camps just
across the border, the American
lines ought to do now for the rich
camps in Stevens and Okanogan
counties. If they fail to do it, the
Canadian Pacific's next step will
be to invade the mining camps on
this side of the border.
It is hoped they will. We want
the Canadian Pacific in Washington, and the British Columbia people should want the Great Northern in Kootenay and Yale.- -Spokesman-Review.
Canada's New Governor-General Won
The Earl of Minto, our new governor general, is, and has always
been, since his schoolboys at Eton,
one of the keenest of sportsman.
As a gentleman jockey, both over
jumps and on the flat; as an oarsman, aB a nailing good man to
hounds, and in field atheletics,
Lord Minto has won renown. Before succeeded to the peerage Lord
Minto used to figure in the pigskin
under the assumed name of Mr.
Roily. He was then a Cambridge
undergraduate. His pseudonym
was a nickname he had gained at
Eton, where he was a very respectable oar. At school he was a second in the single sculls, and later
gained distinction as an active
member of the Kingston Rowing
club. While an undergraduate he
was aho prominent in athletics,
and won the mile race in third
Trinity sports at Cambridge.
It was as an amateur jockey,
however, that Lord Minto particularly shone. His aspirations were
high, and in 1874 he rode Defense,
owned by the famous English turfman, Captain Machell, into fourth
place for the Liverpool Grand
National Steeplechase. The same
year he won the Grand National
Steeplechase of France, run at Aut-
enil, on Miss Hungerford. He
rode over hurdles���an exceedingly
more difficult feat than steeplechase
riding, though not commonly supposed to be so--with particular success, and won many hurdle races
with horses trained by Mr. Richardson. In 1875, at the Lincoln
spring meeting, he passed the post
first on five different mounts. The
packs of hounds with which he is
especially well known as a bold
horseman, are the Grafton, Lord
Yarborough'B and Bleester.
Lady Minto also comes from a
sporting family���the Greys of Northumberland. She is the daughter of the Hon. Charles Grey, and
a cousin of that rising young statesman, Sir Edward, who even as a
schoolboy won the commendation
of the famous Francis Francis for
his skill with the fly rod, and has
since become celebrated as a golf
player. When Lord Minto was
military attachee here, his sporting
proclivities were well known and
popular, and as governor general
he is sure to advance the cause of
high class sport of all kinds.
Columbia and Western Subsidy.
A rumor comeB from the coast to
the effect that the government ap
predates the justice of the C. P. R.'s
contention that the subsidy shall
be granted for the construction of
the road beyond the approximate
80 miles mentioned in the B. C.
Loan Act. The government feels,
however,that the act cannot be construed into legalizing the subsidy
for the additional distance without
beginning construction from Penticton, and consequently will,
shortly after the legislature opens,
introduce an act amending the B.
C. Loan Act of last year. Such an
amendment will facilitate the completion of the Robson-Boundary
Creek road.
The work from the Summit to
Greenwood is comparatively easy.
There is but little rock work and
the grade is very light. The grading will be made very quickly, as a
nnmber of contractors have finished
their work at the Robson end and
are anxious to move their plants
and men over here.���Greenwood
