Philip D. Armour died nt the old
family homestead in Chicago, last
Sunday. Tbe end came after two
yearn of illness, during which
time Mr. Armour visited German
baths, passed the cold months in
southern California and devoted
himself largely to an attempt to
restore his health, which had been
broken never to be regained.
The death of his son, Philip D.
Armour, jr., iu southern California,
January 29th, 1900, was a great
shock to the health broken man.
The son had gone nn a visit to his
father and was taken suddenly ill
with pneumonia. His death followed with scarcely a days' warning.
Estimates of Mr. Armour's own
estate run from $10,000,000 to $25,-
000,000. Thi�� does not include the
$15,000,000 to $20,000,000 owned
by the yonnger members of his
family. For years every enterprise he was interested in has been
making immense profits.
Death ol. E. A. Bleleaberf at Greenwood.
Last Saturday, death removed
oneof British Columbia's prominent
pioneer prospectors, K. A. Bielenberg, who siiacomhed to pneumonia
���n peri minced by self inflicted
wounds in tlie throat while laboring under a fit of temporary insanity. In the early '80s he was manager for Claus Spreckles, and was
also associated with King Kala-
katia of Hawaii in sugar plantations
and the manufacture of food products. He left the island previous
to the rebellion with a fortune,
which he lost in Montana in the
hanking business. In 1891, in
company with Eli Carpenter, he
entered then the unknown silvery
Slocan by way of Slocan river and
like, thence he drifted into the
Boundary country and succeeded
iu acquiring considerable interests,
principally in the Buckhorn and
Arlington-Burns companies. He
was 48 years of age and unmarried.

The nction on the part of the
government is not only magnanimous, but wise in many other respects. We believe Mr. Foley, in
his official capacity, will bring lo
himself commendation both from
the government and the people, by
his painstaking effort to do his
whole duty. On the matters with
which he will have to deal, he is
w;ell informed, and we believe that
all his efforts will be conservative
and reasonable. We congratulate
Mr. Foley on this occasion of recognition of his fitness for a place
on that commission by the government.

To Operate In Cascade���Has Purchased the
Cascade Water Power and Light Co.
From a London letter printed in
the News-Advertiser nf Vancouver
we extract the following from the
London public records of registrations: "Kettle River Power
company, Ltd.; Capital, ��200,000,
in ��1 shares. T<> acquire all or
part of the property rights, shares,
stock and securities, of the Cascade
Water Power und Light company,
ltd., and to adopt an agreement
with the London and British Columbia Gold Fields, ltd. This
registration was under date of Nov.
19, 1900.
It would not be at all surprising
if it is learned later on that the
corporation mentioned above is the
same that has acquired possession
of the Greenwood Electric Light
and Tramway franchises. It is
becoming apparent that the electric
force will be one most, in demand
in this Boundary country as time
and developments go on. The fact
is apparent, too, that the water and
electric power development work
now in progress in Cascade must
be the genenal source nf this mo.
live force.
The immense capital behind this
work here shows appreciation by
the operators of the immesity of
its scope, and a coporation with a
capitalisation of two hundred thou-
and pounds sterling will certainly
be able to realize all tbe benefits tn
be derived from such wonderfully
promising natural resources. Il
can he readily seen that there will
be in the near future great demand
for power developed here, not only
on this side nf the boundary line,
but on the American side, among
the Pierre Luke and Deep Creek
mines and quarries. The promoters of this work are now fully convinced of this fact and evincing a
disposition to complete the undertaking as speedily as possible.
With this power in operation, driving the machinery of many mines
and tramways and furnishing light
and power to all manner of enterprises, the returns to the investors
in it, cannot be ntherwise than
very gratifying. With this incentive stimulating effort the coining
summer will prove a record-breaker
in mining and smelting progress.
M. F. Hill Has Five Claims Wlthii Fowl
Miles ol Tows.
Mr.  M.  F. Hull, a  feeble   old
gentleman, who   conies   to   town
regularly once a week for a letter
from the "loved ones at home," in
Portland, Ore., from his cabin on
one of his claims, might, and probably would be wealthy, if the real
value of his mineral holdings were
absolutely   known.   As it  is,  his
five prospects, which he has named
in honor of the members of his family  and   President. McKinley, arel
yet undeveloped, and he is  too  furl
advanced in years, about 70, to do>|
much more  haH  work  on   them.
They are located about  four  mil��|
from town on the Bossburg roadr[
and have been sufficiently  work*
to give promise of great value when
they shall have passed   from  th#
stage of prospects to tbat of mines.
On the McKinley full $500 worth.
of work has been done. The specimens he brought to town carry
gold, silver and copper and itsmiy [
from $2 to $11, and constantly ia
prove on exploration.
Mr. Hull has not been home
since 1896, nor has he seen say/
member of his family during that
time,but has lived and labored all
alone on his claims all these years.
As he cannot much longer pur��u��
this course, he offers for sale any
one or all of his valuable eUht* *t
very moderate figures. They ar*
conveniently located as regards access and shipping, especially will
this be true when the proposed
Cascade smelter is erected. Th*
titles of these claims are: "McKinley," "Melville," "Ellen," "Elmyra"
and "Everett Francis." The Record!
hopes, and believes, that ere long's
Mr. Hull will find a purchaser who!
will reward him for his long and [
patient toils, and enrich himself at
the same time. The rich showings*
in younger and more experienced
hands would attract capital that1
would Boon change the undeveloped
prospects to dividend ��� paying

While the American   transport!

service, was lying at Taku,  reports |
the China Gazette,  Mr.  Davidson,.
her third oflicer. came to hie death
i in an extraordinary manner.   He)
w��j walking up and down the deck
chewing a small Japanese  toothpick, and something caused him to i
laugh and swallow it.   At first the j
incident was deemed tn be of a jocular character, and until the victim
showed signs of severe distress, was |
not treated  seriously.   The ship's
doctor was then called, and he at
once sent ashore for further medical assistance.   The toothpick eas-
ed down  through the unfortunate!
man's throat and into the stomach.
Almost immediately inflammation
set in,  and  despite all  attention
Mr. Davidson died  from  peritonitis.

Mr. S. W. Bear experienced a
genuine surprise last Saturday
night when many of his fellow

into hit) residence unannounced
bent on a pleasurable time for a

the situation and made all feel at
home, lending every effort to the
enjoyment of the occasion, and a
very pleasant time was had, the
self-invited guest* only retiring on
the approach of the Sabbath morning. The main feature of the evening was the "sugaring-off," eating
waxed sugar from snow. Some of
