Coke ud Coil Qiettloo.
A prominent and well-posted citizen of Rossland, writing to a friend
in Cascade, says, on the above subjection:
"An attempt is being made lo
throw dust in the eyes of the public by the C. P. R. organs, at Nelson especially, in regard to the
production and shipment of coal
and coke to the United States market to the prejudice of our own J
smelters and refineries. We have
the positive publio assurance of the
Crow's Nest Coal Co. that they
have always amply supplied all the
smelters of B. C. and other industries, andthat they will continue
to do so; but they charge that the
C. P. R. have by delays and lack
of transportation facilities, both as
to cars, and power, kept the smelters practically on as narrow an
allowance as they could. Mr. H.W.
C. Jackson tells me that he saw the
correspondence I which passed between' Capt. Troup and the Trail
smelter in regard to the short supply of coal and coke furnished
them, and in all this correspondence not a word of complaint was
made by the C. P. R. that they
were not furnished ample coke and
coal for the smelter by the Crow's
Nest Coal Company, but that the
difficulty was In tbe shortage of
power and cars; in any event, both
the Dominion and the Local Governments have ample powers to
protect the interests of British' Columbia in this respect."

Wm, Graham, proprietor of the
Grand Forks hotel, and also of the
Grand Forks brewery, iB probably
as popular, and can boast of as
many, if not more admirers among
the male sex, than can any of the
many fair maidens of that town.
The other day he was taken before
a Kangaroo court and fined a
of beer for keeping his places of
business in operation on his 47th
birthday. To further increase his
hardships and labors in the future,
he was presented with a complete
volume of Shakespeare's "Household Melodies."
Jim Hill at Phoeih.
A dispatch front Phoenix says it
is reported there that the real owner
of the Phoenix-Greenwood tramway charter is Jim Hill of the
Great Northern railway, but that
the fact is kept a secret for private
reasons. Hill apparently has in
view the securing of a share of the
tonnage of this camp and the product of the Greenwood smelters.
He is expected to build to Midway
this summer to connect with the
Coast-Kootenay road.
The first bill introduced and
passed to the King's printer by the
present session of the B. C. legislature is entitled "An Act to Relieve the City of Phoenix from Certain Disabilities." The Phoene-
oians of Old Ironsides and Knob
Hill are always up with the lark.
It is somewhere writ among the
standard aphorisms that "the early
bird catches the worm."
A Notable Bveat la Local Society Circlet.
The progressive croconole party
give at the elegant home of Mr. and
Mrs. J. A. Bertoise, last Saturday
night, was a recherche and delight'
ful affair, which was immensely enjoyed by a goodly number of the
friends and neighbors of the genial
host and hostess, under whose skillful direction the well-arranged
program was executed without a
hitch, and to the very pleasant entertainment of the company. The
refreshments served were of the
most delioious and palatable varieties. After refreshments had been
partaken of, oame an exciting game
of pillow-dex, which lasted till two
balloons had been accidentally exploded. Then came the excitement
over the bean-guessing contest for a
prize. Mrs. G. K. Stocker and Mr.
R. Kelman won the first prizes in
the croconole games, and Mr. McFetridge hit the bean-guess number
within one. There were 502 beans
in the glass jar, and his guess was
501. It iB safe to presume that
some of the participants can reckon
better than they can guess, for they
nearly missed the mark by more
beans than were contained in the
jar. Being so interestingly entertained the company did not disperse for their several homes till
forced to by the approach of the
Sabbath morning.
A Perry Boat to Be Used oa the Kettle
River Near Biulne'i.
To facilitate travel between Cas<
cade and the many new settlers on
the east side of the Kettle river, of
whom Mr. Barber is one, he is now
engaged in the building of a commodious ferry boat. It will be
placed in service on tht river at a
point near Mr. Wilfrid Baulne's
present residence, and where the
attempt was made several years
ago to build a bridge, but which
was washed away by high water
before it was completed. This
bridge was intended to accommodate travel by a new and shorter
route from Marcus. The' building
of this boat is quite an undertaking which will require two month's
time at least, and consume several
thousand feet of lumber. The cable
by which means the boat is to be
operated, was put in place while
the ice favored the work.

held Tuesday evening last, new officers were elected, as follows:
President, H. S. Turner; vice President, G. K. Stocker (re-elected);
Secretary, Geo. C. Rose; Treasurer,
T. F. Carden (re-elected).
Delegates were also elected to attend the convention held in Greenwood last Thursday and Friday by
the Associated Boards of Trade of
the Kootenays and Boundary, consisting of G. C. Rose, Angus Cameron and H. S. Turner. . Mr. Cameron stated to the meeting that he-
had received a letter from Hon.
Smith Curtis, M. L. A., requesting
this community to state ita needs
in the way of public works and improvements, which request must be
on file before the 1st of March.
After an informal talk on the subject, an adjournment was taken till
this evening to further consider it.

Montreal Star: The railway*
constitute themselves partner* in
every development enterprise that
starts up in the country. That is
what it amounts to. The discrimination against Canadian goods i��
due to the fact that the railways
can compel the domestic traffic of
the country, while they are trying
to deserve a share in the traffic of
the United States. This is natural
enough on their part, but it is the
duty of the people to consider seriously how tbey can escape from
the grasp of the railways. The
only conclusion seems to be, if the
people can not control the traffic
rates, they must own the roads.
In view of the recent applications
for water rights upon the Kettle
river near Cascade City, the Provincial government has requested
Mr. H. B. Smith, M. inst. C. E., to
measure the amount of the flow of
the river at Cascade City. Despite
the prevalent opinion that the river is at its lowest in August, Mr.
Smith declares that the real period
of lowness in the rivers of the Kootenay, as may be seen by watching
the rise and fall of tbe Colombia,
is the present month of February.
Hence this month is the best for
ascertaining the least amount of
the flow of any particular river.���

While The Record was almost
wholly prepared to go to press last
Thursday night, the delays in the
train service by unavoidable obstacles, and the triune chief���editor,
devil and wood-sawyer���of The
Record being a delegate to the Associated Boards of Trade convention .in Greenwood, which was decayed in its action by the delayed
trains, are the reasons given for
the failure of The Record to put
in its appearance promptly on time.
The convention, however, was a
a great success, is deserving of extended mention, and will be given

The horntying disasters were not
*11 crowded into the latter months
of the nineteenth century. They
are Mill occurring with startling frequency. The two latest terrible accidents reported, following the coal
���mine horror at Comax, are the
wrecks of the Rio De Janeiro in
Golden Gale, last Saturday, when
122 lives were lust; and tlie Kern-
merer, Wyo., mine disaster, Feb.
25th, where 50 miners were entombed with 15 horses, only one of
the men escaping.
Jim Hill is a native of Canada.
Is Sir Van Home? Are the Dutch
bondholders who virtually own and
control the Seepeearr? The truth
is this great monopoly was established with the money of the tax
payers of Canada, and is now
principally owned and controlled
by Boer sympathisers. In view of
this fact, what becomes of the hyp-
ocritic cry of Patriotism !   Bah !
Forty girls who were employed
by the Dominion Suspender company at Niagara Falls are on a
strike because their wages have
been reduced from $4 and $3.50 a
week to $3 and $2.50. The next
thing we'll hear, probably, is that
the wages of these girls will go still
lower, if Jim Hill is permitted to
haul coal and coke out of this
The Torosto World sod the C. P. R.
Railways sre not patriotic even if
built by heavy national subsidies.
The C. P. R. got immense subsidies of land and money, and would
build up Boston instead of Montreal if its interests so dictated. So also the Grand Trunk; The great
bridge across the St. Lawrence that
Canada helped bo generously to
build, is used by that road to take
traffic to Portland instead of to
Canadian ports. The C. P. R. may
any day turn south into Minnesota
and send a lot of its traffic to New
York, if it got a profitable connection that way. Both concerns have
declared that dividends,, not patriotism, is their sufficient motive.
Railways do not care whether
the productions of a country go out
in a finished or unfinished condition as long as they get the traffic.
In fact they'd sooner haul the ores
of Canada into the States for refining than carry out the metal itself.
The tonnage is lighter in the lalter
case. All the talk of keeping Canada for Canadians by trusting to
our railways is based on moon
ehine. Our railway" are not work
ing for Canada, but for their shareholders. The Canadian Pacific hus
always appealed to Parliament to
prevent United States invading
our Great West, because they would
take business out of Canada. But
one of the biggest sinners in this
respect has been the C. P. R.
A railway policy will never do
this, but a fiscal policy may. It is
by a customs tariff that foreign
goods are kept out, and Canadian
merchants, manufacturers and
farmers reap the home market. It
is export duties on raw products
that will force their conversion into
finished products at home.
Next, we buy a lot of coal from
the United States. We get ooal
from Pennsylvania and from Ohio.
We are beginning an immense coalmining industry in Nova Scotia,
and now ship a "lot of coal to Boston. We hope to ship a hundred
times as much. We are only too
glad to sell this coal to Boston, and
to build up a coal mining population by the sea, and we in Ontario
are thankful to get supplies of bard
and soft coal from across the lake.

Heavy elides on the C. & W.
near Gladstone, Thursday forenoon
effectually blocaded traffic for the
day. The east bound passenger
train went up to the slide and exchanged passengers, mail Mid ex
press with the west bound, and re
turned to Midway. As most of the
delegates to the convention of the
Associated Boards of Trade were
on the delayed train, they did not
get into Greenwood till about 12 p.
nt., thus precluding an evening
session Thursday.
Mr. and Mrs. William Anderson
and family arrived home in Cascade last Thursday. The return of
Mr. Anderson, who is the construction Engineer und general local
manager for the Cascade Water
Power and Light company, has
lieen anxiously awaited by our
citizens, us it is hoped thut bis
presence here means a renewal of
activity on the water-power improvement works. Besides, as
friends and neighbors, all are glad
to welcome them safely^home from
an extended visit to the old country.
Miss McCoy, daughter of Rev.
Jos. McCoy, who was formerly

who is exceptionally gifted and accomplished as a singer of rapidly

Boundary country with a view of
favoring the people with a musicals or concert at some of the
prominent places. Miss McCoy
will be in Rossland next Friday,
and is expected to be in Cascade
the following day, and will remain
over .till Monday, as the guest of
Mr. and Mrs. G. K. Stocker, at
Laurel Ridge. In the mean time
it is hoped that Miss McCoy will
decide to favor Cascade with one of
her highly spoken of Musicales, on

MARCH 8, 1M1
By the Government at the Present Session
of the Local Assembly.
A measure amending the School
A bill for the encouragement of
wood pulp industry in B. C.
The Lieutenant-Governor says,
"I am pleased to know that the
dairy industry continues to develop
in bo natiBfactory a manner, and
that new creameries are being
established. My MiniBter of Agriculture has obtained the promise of
continued co-operation on the pari
of the Dominion in rendering expert assistance in their construction
and subsequent operation, and in
Riving instruction in the manufacture of butter and cheese.
"Recognizing the importance of
encouraging Provincial trade in
agricultural and other natural
products, and in particular of promoting a market for the produce
of fanners in tbe mining districts,
efforts have been made to secure
such a reduction of freight rates as
will materially tend in that direction; and lam pleased to announce
that this will be brought about.
"For the purpose of promoting
settlement, my Government is considering the advisability of introducing legislation having in view
the extension of the system of small
"A measure will be introduced
with the view of aiding in the construction of a railway from the
Doundary Creek District to the
Coast; of a railway to the northern
end of Vancouver Island; and of a
railway in Canadian territory from
the Coast to the northern boundary
of the Province.
"The industries of the Province,
I am happy to state, are in a prosperous condition. It is to be de-
.pjored, however, that the recent explosion at Coinox should have resulted in such disaster to life and
property, and the relatives of the
deceased miners are entitled to our
deepest sympathy in their great bereavement.
"During the receBs, Commissions
were issued to inquire into the conduct and general administration of
the Asylum for the Insane; the
rights of settlers in the Eequimalt
and Nanaimo Railway Company's
land belt, and tbe adjustment of
mining claims in the newly organised Porcupine District; and full
reports of the Commissioners in
each case will be laid before you at
an early date.
"Provision was made by you at
the last Session of the Legislature,
for the appointment of a Commission to inquire into the working of
the Mining Acts, and much preliminary information has been obtained by tbe Department of Mines
in anticipation of the Commission
being issued; but it having been
announced that the Dominion Government also intended issuing a
Commission with respect to our
mineral resources, a postponement
was deemed desirable, in order to
ascertain to what extent these Commissions might be able to co-oper
ate in the advantage of the Province.
"Amendments will be introduced
to perfect as far as possible, existing mining laws.
"The Aot regulating immigration, passed at last Session, has
come into effect, and the necessary
machinery for its inforcement has
been put in operation.
"A delegation, consisting of my
First Minister and.the Honourable
the Attorney-General, recently proceeded to Ottawa, to lay before the
Dominion Government, the claims
of British Columbia  to increased
recognition in the matter of railway development, and in other respects, and to arrive at a settlement of certain matters requiring
adjustment between the two governments. The report of the delegation will be laid before you at an
early date.
"The estimates of Receipts and
Expenditure, which have been prepared with due regard to economy
and the requirements of tbe Province, will be submitted shortly.
"I now leave you to your deliberations, and trust that they may,
with the blessing of Divine Providence, be instrumental in materially advancing the interests of the

We inadvertantly ommitted to
mention in our last issue that the
three eldest children of Mr. and
Mrs. Wilfrid Baulne had been
placed aboard the train at Marcus
and sent to the government school
near Salem, Ore. This has reduced their family just one-half,
and of course there is a painful
stillness about the home that constantly reminds the parents of
their absent oneB; but they will be
prouder than ever of them when
they return from their three-year
