Lociled oa Chrlitlna Uke, Near C. P. R.
The resumption of work by the
Victoria Gold and Copper Mining
company on their properties h a
matter of great interest to all ciuim
owners on and near Shamrock
mountain. A meeting of the company's stockholders was held at
English Point on Wednesday the
15th inst. when officers wereelected
as follows: Frank ��. Starkey,
Spokane, Wash., President and
General Manager; DewittC. Beach,
Cascade, B. C, Vice-President, A.
G. Starkey, Spokane, Secretary and
Treasurer; these with C. Blakeslee,
of New York and A. M. Austin of
Spokane form the directorate.
The company owns four claims
to wit: Victoriii. Copper Wonder,
Copper Mountain and Evening
Star, which are located on the east
side of Christina Lake and seven
miles from Cascade.
The company has heretofore, besides doing considerable surface
work, run n tunnel 115 feet, built a
trail to the property and erected
good cabins, etc. It has long been
known that the surface showings of
these properties were among the
best in the district, surface work
done indicating a ledge from ten to
twenty feet in width; the ledge lies
hetween a lime and granite contact
and the ore carries good values in
gold and copper. The C. P. R.
crosses the claims affording cheap
transportation to either the Trail,
Nelson or Granby smelters.
Pres. Starkey was in Cascade
Saturday last and in conversation
with The Record man' said: "I
have been east for the last five
months, during which time I visited
mv old home at Lincoln, III.,- New
Haven, Conn., Cincinatti, and
other places. I succeeded in interesting capitalists in these properties
and am assured of sufficient money
to cont nue the work until the properties are on a paying basis. By
continuing the 115-foot tunnel
some 20 or 80 feet we expect to tap
the ore body at 100 feet depth,
when we intend to sink. Six men
will he put to work at once with.
D. C. Beach as foreman. We will
increase the force as soon as more
can work advantageously."
Mr. Starkey is one of the parties
who developed and successfully
floated the Ruth mine at Sandon
and this locality ia to be congratulated in having a man of hie
ability and conservatism interested
in our midst.

The strike of street car employees at Albany has been called off,

Notes By The "Way.
Miners, your licenses run out
next Friday.
The Northport Smelter has closed
owing to differences between employers and employees.
The Phoenix Pioneer indicates
its succesB by moving into new and
more commodious quarters.
At the recent M. E. conference
held in Nelson, Rev. J. D. P. Knox
was assigned to Greenwood, and J.
B. Kinney to Phoenix.
Rich placers are reported to have
been found at Republic, Messrs
Olney & Blair estimate $100 as the
result of one day's labor. In the
early 60's rich placers were known
to exist not many miles distant
from these new discoveries.
The machinists of the states have
started a movement to enforce a
nine hour day without decrease of
wages. While an amicable settlement has been reached in many
localities, strikes have occurred in
others, while present indications
are they will become general, causing much suffering and loss.
Mining men who have examined
properties on Shamrock mountain
express surprise at the improved
showing in the mines since a year
ago. While the amount of development is limited, the improved character of the ore, the increased size
and assured permanency of the
veins is, they say, simply marvellous.
James J. Hill shed tears over losses his personal friends suffered during the recent flurry in Wall street.
This report going the rounds <��! the
press, reminds the writer of an old
minstrel show joke. The song and
dance artist after responding to numerous encores, appeared upon the
stage out of breath, and bowing to
the audience said, "You no doubt
think I am doing this for fun but I
am not. I do this for the benefit of
a poor lone widow and her orphan
child. I am the orphan." Querie,
Who is Hill's personal friend ?
The Taxpayers of Spokane have
organized for the purpose of enforcing a more economical administration of both county and city's affairs. Investigation by committees
was made in each of the several departments who reported specifically
where in their opinion expences
could be reduced without detriment*.
Should such an investigation he in-
augerated in this province, no doubt
some startling revelations would
come to light, particularly relating
to the expenditures made in building roads, trails and bridges.

'Tis with the greatest pleasure
we learn the long delay of completing the Water, Power & Light Co's
works is at an end. Mr. S. S. Fowler, of the company owning the water power, who was in town Saturday last, stated he anticipated no
further delay. Financial conditions
in England have not been such the
past year as to encourage foreign
expenditures; ample funds are now
however available, and no further
delay in completing the works is
looked for. Orders for all tbe necessary machinery have been placed
with the Westinghouse Electric A
Manufacturing Co. of Pittsburg,
Pennsylvania, and tenders for furnishing poles to extend the wires
from Cascade to the mining camps
in the neighborhood, are asked for
as will be seen in another column
of the Record. It is expected the
machinery will be installed, and
the entire plant completed and in
running order by Christmas.
To accomplish this a large force
of men must necessarily be employed, creating a good pay roll for
Cascade, while tbe completion and
operation of this property means
much for the future, not of Cascade
alone, hut of the entire Christina
lake and Boundary country.
1000 to 2000 b. p. will be available at half the cost of steam power; by its use smelting, lumbering
and other industries will spring up
in our midst, mines will be open-
ted cheaply, tbe city illuminated

GRAND FORKS-REPUCUC RAILROAD,
, A recent issue of the Spokesman-Review centains an interview with W. C. Morris of Republic, who has always, on the
surface, been one of the principal promoters of what is
termed the Grand Forks-Republic railway company. In
the interview Mr. Morris states
that all the obstacles to the
proposed railway have been
overcome, the main one being
the right of way over the Indian .allotments on the reservation, and that active construction work will proceed at
once. Following this statement
���a large force of surveyors
pitched camp within two miles
of Republic and began the
work of location and cross-sectioning. Mr. Morris further
states that his road has traffic
arrangements with the C P R.
The question is, is this "hat
talk, or does it mean that the
turning down of the McArthur
& McCrea application, was
the clannish, narrow method
of the Ottawa authorities of
squelching the Great Northern plans as relate to the interests to this section ? Still,
it is asserted that the Stratton
outfit are backed by the Great
Northern, at that Grand Forks
is anxious for direct connection witli Spokane, and that
the Kettle river road surveyed
by the Great Northern will
be constructed immediately.
However, so far as the general
public is concerned, the whole
thing is still an enigma. All
we can do is to take St. Paul's
advice and "Let patience have
its perfect work.''
The reason that Hon. Jos.
Martin is denounced, is that he
will not be led by the nose by
political strikers. In the recent split between Mr. Martin
and Mr. Curtis, they were
both right, that is if they acted upon conviction. The
Dunsmuir railway policy is
all right, if it is practical and
the needed railroads can be
built under it; if they cannot
the policy is all wrong. Mr.
Martin seemed to think they
could, and Mr. Curtis thought
they could not, hence the parting of their political ways. Give
them both credit for their actions, do not impune their motives. Time will tell who took
the wisest course. A few unscrupulous political bell-sheep
have created much prejudice
against Mr. Martin. And
there are those who denounce
Mr. Curtis equally severely,
and without reason. Their
traducers are either ill-informed or political shysters.
The Greenwood Times says
the government is penny wise
and pound foolish because,
appropriating    $20,000    and
seeing it squandered on the
West Fork wagon road, it refuses to furnish any more for
that purpose. We think The
Times is in error. If the additional sum asked, $3,000,
were granted, would it not also be squandered? This
whole road business must be
taken out of the hands of the
"log-rolling" politicians. The
"paternal" system is wrong.
The fault is in the non-action
of the legislature for many
years.
The Toledo, O., Bee publishes a story to the effect
that Dr. Ash, former resident
of that city, has just sold to
John D. Rockefeller for $1,-
000,000, 160 acres in Northern Wisconsin, which Dr. Ash
purchased iu 1884 for $1,000
on a speculation. The tract
is said to include the only
harboi in Northern Wisconsin.
The adjournment of the legislature has worked a hardship
on the country newspapers, in
that it out off their supply of
wrapper and copy paper.
The local railway situation is
practically unchanged since lnsl
week. Rumors that, contracts on
the road from Marcus to Republic
will lie let in the next week or two
are current but cannot be verified
as yet; the survey from the Spokane Falls & Northern near Myers
Fallr>, to the Doundary line lit Carson is practically complete. At the'
const the C. P. R. lias fileil with
the commissioner of Land and
Works plans for a railway from the
coast to a point near Hope, a distance of aliniit 100 miles. This h
through part of the country which
it was expected would be occupied
hy the V. V.AE, and from this
action it might seem that the C. P.
It. had concluded to accept the
conditions exacted hy the provincial government, take the subsidy
and occupy the field. Should this
lie so, it should not prevent building of the Marcus-Republic line, as
that portion of this road which
would be in British Columbia,
would he constructed under the V.
V. & E charter already in existence
and for which no sulisidy  is asked.
S. T. Larson, landlord of the Riverside hotel, Rock creek, together
with M. W. Breser and H. A. Green,
were held up at the point of revolvers in the hands of two masked
men, who succeeded in relieveing
their victims of about $600. No
clue to the robbers.
Aa Excunlon 00 Christina Lake.
Yesterday, Victoria Day, a parly nf citizens of Gladstone and Cascade, in accord with a pre-arranged
plan, enjoyed a ride aboard the
Myrtle B on Christina lake. The ex-
cuisionists, consisting of the Misses
(1 rant and Mr. Ira Grant of Gladstone, and Mrs. Stocker, Mrs. McRae and daughter Jennie, Mrs.
Bertois, Mrs. Turner, Miss Ruckle,
Messrs Stocker, Rev. Rohb, Harry
Cook, R, Kelman, R. G. Ritchie,
J. A. Bertois, left Cascade about 7
o'clock in the morning and arrived
at the head of the lake about 11,
where a general picnic luncheon
was enjoyed, and the time passed in
rowing, field sports and hunting.
Returning the party arrived home
at 8 o'clock in the evening. Owing
to an over sight the box containing
the main delicacies for the luncheon
was forgotten and left on the boat
which returned to its moorings at
Lavalley's. But when the party
reached the foot of the lake on the
return trip, they dined again, when
the goods missed at noon were con
sumed. Several large fish were
caught by members of the party,
Jennie McRae succeeding in landing the largest one. All report a
most delightful time. The souvenirs brought back were mostly of a
bluish tinge, as the new coat of
paint ou the boat was not perfectly
dry, Rev Robh's white pants being
the most conspicuous in thi-s respect.
Mr. and Mrs.'w. H. Reynolds of
the Cosmopolitan enjoyed an outing
on Christina lake yesterday, as did
Messrs. Asprey and Thickness.

LOOK ON THIS AND THEN ON THAT
Great Minds  Do  Not Always  Run In the
Suae amove.
His Honor the Administrator of
the Government was pleased to deliver the following speech:���
Mr. Speaker and Gentlemen of tlie
Legislative Assembly:���
It gives me pleasure to release
you from the duties of it long and
arduous session, in which measures
of unusual importance have lieeii
the subjects of deliberation, and I
am pleased to express my appreciation of the earnest and careful
inniiner in which you have dealt
with them. ,
Liberal supplies have been granted for the prosecution of public
works.
I inn pleased to observe that you
have in the "Public Loan Bill"
made provision for systematic railway development on a large scale,
which will linvn the result of opening up the various sections through
which the proposed lines will pas's,
und of affording greatly increased
communication; and further, that
the construction and operation of
these lines have been surrounded
by such restrictions in the public
interest as will insure to the Province the largest amount of benefit
possible to be derived from such
undertakings.
I am gratified to know that in
connection with proposed railway
lines to the south, provision has
been made for the safe-guarding of
the mining and smeltiug industry
of the Southern Interior, whereby a
continuous and permant supply of
coal and coke is rendered available.
I am also pleased to observe that
a measure has been passed amending the "Public Schools Act" and
providing that in the future that
Boards of School Trustees of City
School Districts shall have greater
control of educational affairs in
their respective cities.
An Act respecting the Fisheries
of British Columbia has been passed, whereby the Province has as
sumed control of the fishery rights
of this province, in accordance with
the decision of the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council.
In the amendments to existing
mining legislation, provision has
been made for the enlargement of
placer claims and the greater protection of prospectors and miners
in respect of occupation and title to
mining properties, and for more
frequent official publication of re
turns of mineral output of the
Province.
I note wjth satisfaction the adoption of a complete code of mine big
nals, and the steps taken for the
examinations of miners and shot-
lighters in collieries, whereby the
dangers incident to underground
employment in our mines will be
greatly lessened.
I have to congratulate you on

formation of neglected and dependent children, and for other measures seeking the amelioration of social conditions in a similar way.
The measure submitted for the
encouragement of the manufacture

the establishment of a new and important industry in this Province.
norance. Do you not know that
the members after strenuous wrestling with the problem succeeded in
passing a bill increasing the sessional indemnity from $600 to
$800 I That was a great achievement, and removes once and for all
any doubt which may have existed
in the minds of the people, that
those who were sent to look after
the interests of the country were liable to overlook opportunities ..to
place an honest dollar in their
pockets. But something more was
accomplished during the session���
oh, yes, something more. For instance, the country has been introduced to a brand new railway policy. This policy is unique, It is,
as wus the session, "a dandy." It
may be termed a "Sweet Bye and
Bye" policy. It promises a great,
deal and accomplishes nothing.
The people are given a policy when
they want a railway���that, in
short, seems lo be aboift the size of
the government's achievement. But
something more was accomplished
during the session. This was the
nuptials of Martin and Dunsmuir.
They were married during the session. Didn't you hear about it ?
Oh, yes, they were, and it waB a
grand affair. All, or nearly all
of the Opposition assisted at the
ceremonies. Mclnnes was the 'best
man and other assistants were
Brown, Houston and Green. The
presents were "numerous and costly." The C. P. R. contributed
handsomely, so it is said.
It was a great session.

The session is over; the house
has been prorogued, and the tired
legislators are returning to their
homes. It was a grand session,
wasn't it I In the language of the
sohoolboy it was "a dandy" ! Do
you ask what was accomplished ?
Why, we are surprised at your ig-1 toria Day ut Midway
The westbound passenger train
on the C. &. W. yesterday was
packed to the hurricane deck by excursionists from Rossland and Nelson bound for Grand Forks to witness the lacross match between the
local and Nelson teams, and for
Midway. It wa> said, too, thai n
party of some fifteen or twenty on
board intended to enjoy a trip on
the lake, but learning the Myrtle B
was already under engagement,
went on.
The Pioneer store is receiving a
large invoice of new goods to-day.
Thursday, five teams, three 4-
horse and two 6-horse,came in from
Bossbnrg laden with a carload of
Bennett fuse, consigned to W. K. C.
Manly of Grand Forks, who is selling agent for the Boundary for Mr.
[lowland Machin of .Victoria, general coast agent for the manufacturers, who are located in England.
These goods were shipped in bond
over American roads because, it is
said, the fuse company are not on
business terms with the C. P. R.

BRIEF LOCAL MENTION.
Mr. Martin Johnson, proprietor
of Hotel Coryell, was in town this
week. Martin says the activity of
prospectors in the Burnt Basin district makes Coryell quite a busy
little center.
The Clipper sawmill, owned and
operated by Stover & Sons, which
was located about three miles below Bossburg, was destroyed by fire
on Thursday of lust week. It is
understood, however, that tlie mill
will be rebuilt immediately. It was
at this mill Mr. P. A. Monro, of
Cascade, had been employed as engineer the past year.
MrB. P. A. Monro, who had been
residing with her husband at the
Clipper sawmill near Bossburg returned to Cascade last Saturday,
and will hereafter be found "at
home" at her residence on First
avenue near the Commercial hotel.
As will be Been by an advertisement in another column, there will
be a meeting of the Board of License Commissioners of Boundury
Creek District at the Commercial
hotel in Eholt, June 15th.
With the completion of the Wa-
er Power Works, developing 20,000
h. p., the erection of the Yale Columbia lumber company's large
sawmill, the construction of the
railway from Marcus to Republic
through our town, and the possible
construction of a large smelter or
two, Cascade will soon be able to
convince some of the "only" cities
of the district "that there are
otherB."
Victoria Day passed off quietly
in Cascade. So many of our citizens participated in the excursion
aboard the Mytle B on Christina
lake, it was unusually still in town.
Ernest Bunting of Eholt was vising in Cascade this week, leaving
yesterday to take in tbe celebration
at Midway.
Mrs. N. W. Coates enjoyed Vie-
Quite a flurry on the Spokane
Stock exchange was caused this
week by charges of fraud being
made by broker H. M. Herrin.
Evidently Herrin(g) thought some
"shark" was playing him for a
"i.ucker," and he objected to being
taken for that kind of a fish.

The following paragraph is sent
out by a Greenwood correspondent:
James Breen is still at Phoenix.
Nothing can be. learned as to his

information regarding the proposed
route of the Great Northern into
this district.

Albert Casole, an Indian aged 40,
section foreman at Eholt, died suddenly at Greenwood last week. An
