Great interest is being" taker! in
the opening of the Colville Indian

to be of extreme fertility, and a

place when Oklahoma was thrown

And ctofe *'bj) * to "the " Can'udtati
boundary. The principal'places'
in the Boundary are Molson, Chesaw and Bolster which are a few
miles off the Boundary line, and
are most easily reached by the
Canadian Pacific Railyway's new
Boundary Creek extension to Midway, the distance from that point
being only 19 miles to Bolster, 20J
to Chesaw and 23}. to Molson by a
good wagon road. In the past difficulty has been experienced in getting shipments of freight to those
points owing to the lack of Custom
facilities, but it will now be com
pletely overcome as the United
States government has just assigned a Customs oflicer to Midway to
facilitate the transfer of American
freight to those points.

day by taking poison supposed to
be strychnine. The girl had it is

Immediately after the recent pro-
vincinl elections, tlie newspapers
which fount] ileliuht in hounding
Hon. Joseph Martin, regardless of
truth in their assertions, proclaimed that Mr. Martin was so disgust-
eel with the treatment he received
ut the hands of the voters he had
decided to leave Hritish Columbia
and go to Alaska. This falsehood
being worked threadbare, it was
heralded that the Hon. Joseph
would go back to Manitoba, and
for revenge seek to carry that province against the Uurier government. ThiB also proved to be
another falsehood. Not satisfied
with their devilish "backcapping,"
these same publishers are asserting
that Mr. Martin is now trying to
encompass the defeat of nominee
Galliher. That the last charge is
as untrue as the previous ones
there Is not the slightest doubt.
One of the peanut headed editors
down on the Sound is now trying
to work up prejudise against Hon.
J. M. because he has trimmed his
beard in new form. What will the
anti-Martin giant journalistic brain
of the coast cities conceive next in
their abortive efforts to debase Mr.
Martin's reputation ?
From the tone of the following
thrust by the Silvertonian, it would
appear that the government's road
promises to the Slocan people have
been massacred by the political
Boxers before maturing. Of this
matter that paper sarkastickly says:
"If the Premier would inspire fewer
newspaper articles concerning his
virtuous action in displacing his
Chinese miners and do some jog.
ging up around the Departments
under his charge, the people of this
section would be better pleased."
Down in Arizona trees, in some
instances, are considered better advertising mediums than newspapers
and less expensive. A rancher
lately informed all whom it con
cerned by means of a notice posted
on a cottonwood tree that: "My
wife, Sarah, has left my ranch
when I didn't Do a Thing Too her,
���and I want it distinkly understood
that any Man as takes her in and
Keers for her on my account will
get himself Pumped so Fuil of Led
that some tenderfoot will locate
him for a mineral claim. A word
to the wise is sufficient and orter
work on fools."
The irony of fate is seen in the
case of a man in Galvestion, who
after coming through the terrible
tidal wave unscathed, stepped on a
rusty nail while walking over the
debris of the stricken city, and
died of blood poisoning.
C. P. R. Pauenfer Trains  Change  Runilng
After Sunday Oct. 14, the Imperial Limited service of the Canadian Pacific Railway will be withdrawn and the winter time schedule
will take effect. This will necessarily change the time of arrival
and departure of all trains over the
entire system, and the new time
table locally will be as follows:
From Nelson and Rossland will arrive here at 1:21; from Midway at
4:34. The Boundary train leaves
Nelson at 8 in the morning, and
arrives back at 11:25 p. m. Rossland, 30 minutes earlier and later.
Mr. J. H. McDonald is now employed as engineer 11 the sawmill,
Mr. Thomas Price is at present
engaged on contract work on the
government road between Grand
Forks and Franklin camp.
Two carloads of lumber were
shipped from the Yale-Columbia
company's yards in Cascade last
week, and six more will be shipped
this week.
Business in the Boundary seems
to be improving with the C. P. R.,
at least, judging from the number
of freight trains now passing over
the C. & W. daily.
D. P. Barbar, assisted by Messrs,
Dunbar, Woodruff and Dalgleish,
has I een engaged the past week
making improvements on the Corduroy road across the Sutherland
creek swamp.
Mr. A. M. Button, manager here
for the Yale-Columbia lumber company, has gone over to Robson for
a week or two, being called there to
place some machinery in his company's mill at that place. Mr. A.
Luff, of Greenwood, will act in Mr.
Button's place during his absence,
and probably bring his family here
to remain permanently.
We see by the Vernon News that
Rev. Joseph McCoy of that place,
formerly of Cascade, is now enjoying the society of his family. The
paper referred to contains a full
account, of a reception tendered
Mrs. McCoy by the Ladies' Aid so
ciety of Vernon on Monday last.
The Record was not correct in
its statement last week that both
Mr. Bertois and his bride had returned to Cascade. Mrs. Bertois is
on a visit to her relatives in the
east, nnd will not return here for
several weeks.
The tunnel of the Cascade Water Power company's flumeway under the C. P. R. track, so far as the
rock work goes, is about completed,
both end crews coming together
early in the week. Wednesday
morning Mr. W. C. Simmons began
the work of timbering about 140
feet of the tunnel which requires it.
The aged mother of the Simmons
brothers, W. C. and G. J., who resides at the family home in Brace-
bridge, Ont., is reported dangerously ill. A telegram to thai effect
having been received hy the sons
here Tuesday. G. J. Simmons left
for the east at noon of that day.
W. C. Simmons will follow later if
he gets no more favorable information from his people in the east, in
a few days.

An exchange says that "The ma-1     And so Chris Foley has accepted
chine for weighing g.ild, in daily
use at the Bank of England, is so
sensitive, that a postage stamp
dropped on the scale will turn the
index on the dial h distance of two
inches." Thai's nothing. We have
in our oflice at Mossley, an instrument for testing the weight and
strength of yarn which is so sensitive that if you lireathe lightly on
one side of it after drinking whiskey or eating onions, it holds up
the other arm six inches and coughs,
whereas if it hears a fish story it
actually flutters its scales and
winks. One day a man who had
heen consuming Imth onions and
whiskey started telling lish tales
in business hours, and ii was so
upset, it lost its balance, had a tit
of hysterics and bit him
Tho editor of that most,worthy
and ably compiled publication the
B. C. Mining Record, who is generally so strictly serious in dealing
with the miner evils of this life
that be jokes "vvi' deeficulty,," has
for a change, lapsed into a vein of
mild humor. It is well; the country was getting loansouie, and the
man with the owe superabundant,
we all need cheering. He complains
of an "excellent contemporary in
the Boundary, appropriating from
his paper an article containing
"several unfortunate typographical
errors" and reprinting it without acknowledgment.
The type must have been kicking all round the' place that day
for the most serious error was in
mentioning, .feet instead, of inches
in connection with tbe dimensions
of an air receiver, so it seems a toss
up whether the editor, contributor,
typographer, or excellent
porary has put his feet
his nomination and will run for
Parliament. He has kept his promise. Some where in that great burly frame of his there is probably a
whole lot of ability���likewise the
nucleus of much tribulation. He
has a big head, a big brain and a
hig tongue. He might easily prove
one of the greatest blessings or the
biggest curse British Columbia has
ever enjoyed or has suffered from.
He needs starling right and keeping there. If any one Mr. Foley's
weight got off the track he'd tear
U)i everything in sight. His best
friends will be those who counsel
caution and a few lines of simple
poetry may not be without value
for his guidance:

And talking about typographical
errors recalls the fact that even the

last week. Some of which fell to
my own share.
Therein lies one of the greatest
drawbacks in using foreign expressions or quotations. If a mistake is
made in English, you can blame
the printer every time, but if any
foreign words are misused the writer
gets the discredit. Therefore in
making a Bruxelbuse say "eh bein"
instead of "eh bien," we will suppose slie was of Flemish or Walloon
origin and knew no better. A letter makes a lot of difference sometimes. A Nelson paper recently
made dozens of dollars out of a
four cent blunder.
The Liverpool Labour Chronicle's
plebiscite of its readers indicates a
58 to 1 condemnation of the South
African war. Prodigious! If that
means anything at all it should
mean that Liverpool in general
ami its working men in particular,
having a flat Khaki issue before
them during the present general
elections, could and would do
nothing but oppose the Government
Party. Did they? Not by thousands. The Conservatives carried
8 out of the 9 seats with increased
majorities leaving the other to that
inimitable and perennial humbug
lay Pay. This is a case directly
In point for Mr. Foley. The editor
and readers of the Labour Chronicle
were simply fooling themselves and
each other, A theory of "58 to 1
against" looks lonesome alongside
an "8 to 1 on" fact.

I remember how the great German Chancellor, Prince Bismarck,
the man of "blood and iron," was
once terribly humiliated by the
elight public mistake of a well
meaning Ambassador. The spelling and phonography of the German words Prince and sausage are
very similar. Clearly and unmistakably however, the British Ambassador publicly described Bismarck as "the greatest sausage in
Germany." The Emperor took
covert satisfaction, Bismarck
scowled, the officials tried to look
unconscious, whilst von Schweinitz
ever as swift to detect and display
a joke, as he was to pounce upon a
weakness in the army organization, smiled grimly, and gently
muttered, ''same thing, Bame
And as for Mr. T. P. O'Coii 's
constituency I pray to Heaven I
may never be compelled to reside
in in it, for many reasons. Here
is one by way of illustration.
A certain gentleman was speaking of the dapger of thieves and
desperadoes in the Scotland Road
purlieus. "Ah" .-laid another "that
might apply to a stranger but it
wouldn't affect me, I dare bang my
watch on a lump post on the worst
street in the locality and so long as
my card is with it not a soul will
touch it."
He was a police magistrate, celebrated for his severity. "1,1.1 bet
you ��10 to ��1 you daren't," the
friend replied.
"Done," was the response, and
together they hied themselves to the
selected spot "His worship." took
out his watcli and wrote thereon:
"Six months for anyone touching
this watch." Then he felt for his
ticker; it was an 18 carat gold

'     H. W.  Warrington, formerly  a
resident of Republic, but who has
for some time been   living   near
Greenwood, telle a Pioneer reporter
that though the mines are working
large forces, and even  increasing
the number of employes, yet  there
is but little money  in  circulation.
No gambling of any  kind  is  permitted, and but  little else in  the
way of iliverson is in evidence.    As
a consequence  tbe  miners   round
about seldom visit  the town,  and
when they  do,  make but  a   brief
stop.   For instance, one mine paid
out last month  $10,000 in  ways;
in two days one-half this sum went
back into the bank.   It seems  to
be the policy of everybody to hoard
their money.    Saloon men are desperate and  dry  goods  merchants
distracted over the situation.
There is no show to get any action on your money, nobody takes
any chances; the spirit of speculation is dead; the virtue of good fellowship is passed. From a purely
mining standpoint, however, the
country is developing.

Cascade to Bossburg 4
October 13,1900
The police authorities at Montreal have been requested to look
out for Wm. R.Atkins, late sergeant
of provincial police at Victoria, B.
C, who absconded from that city
with $1,200 last June.
Some of the C. P. It. officials who
prospected recently in the "North
Half" for possible future business,
express themselves as dissappoiut-
ed with that country. They report that the luck of water there
will seriously retard growth.
Sir Thos. Lipton is not only conspicuous because of his "Blue Rib
lion" tea, but more recently because
of his deal with pork in the Chicago market. The neat little corner he put up sent this swine article bounding upwards from $14.50
to $17 per barrel.
Mrs. Jane Brothereon, a widow
60 years of age, while attempting
to take a short cut through the
railway yards at Toronto'Junction
by crawling under the freight cars,
had her head severed from the
body by a car running over it,
death being instantaneous.
The deposits of the Bank of Montreal are the largest in the history
of the institution, and its business
generally has never heen equalled.
It has $55,578,51)7 deposits in Canada and besides has $10,181,066 in
its American or English branches.
Its total loans amount to $73,265,-
916, which, with its investments in
bonds, gives a total of more than
$75,000,000 of employed funds.
Two of the old cannons which the
British took from the French in
1745, and threw into the harbor:of
Louisbourg, have been taken ' 'to
Toronto, and are now lying on the
grounds in the rear of the parliament buildings. They are.among
the number recently fished out of
Louisbourg harbor, and have been
purchased by the Ontario Government. Each cannon is about nine
feet long, and weighs 3,500 pounds.
By reports from Vancouver, it
appears that Premier Dunsmuir is
having more or less trouble with
his employees, and is the victim of
a peculiar strike. During the provincial campaign last April, in
compliance with the strong anti-
Mongolian sentiment, Dunsmuir
discharged all the Chinese who had
been working in his mines on Vancouver island and sent to Scotland
for 400 Scotch miners. Half of
these arrived last week, and this
morning a considerable proportion
of them struck and started off
toward the United States boundary
line. All the expenses of their
transportation hither from Scotland were borne by Dunsmuir.
They are very independent and refused to submit to the usual mining regulations.
In the present dispute of the
international boundary line location near Mt. Baker it is stated on
authority that a peculiar phenomenon transpired during the survey
at that point. When the line was
being run in the early days the
the course of the needle was deflected, it was supposed afterwards
by the deposit of metal in Mt.
Baker, and the survey was inaccurate. This made the line several
miles out of the way and before the
mistake was rectified the advantage was given to the Canadians.
Many Americans claim that in
this vicinity the boundary line
should run near the foot of Christina lake, and that Cascade is on
American territory.
