Projected Railway Unci.
(J. Mayne Baltimore In Spokesman-Review.)
Within the last year Kettle river
has been brought into much prominence through two or three projected
lines of railroad. The motu important line of the roads, to Spokane, i�� the one to be constructed by
the Great Nortern, commencing at
the mouth of that stream and following the mountain valley to Cascade, thence on to Republic.
Another road u projected by the
Grand Forks Railroad company,
from that place over to Republic.
For some distance this road will
follow the course of the Kettle river.
A third road is projected which,
leaving Grand Forks, will follow
up the west fork of that stream, and
for some distance tapping the extensive Beaverton country, running
nortwestwr.rd, will strike Okanogan
river and effect n connection with a
branch of the Canadian Puciflo.
Kettle river finds its sources a
long distance north of the boundary
line���away up in the fastnesses of
Monishee mountains. Some of the
t-nialler tributaries of the main west
fork reach into the Beaverton country. The head waters are fully 35
miles north of Rock creek, which is
one of the principal tributaries, and
is not far from Midway. The main
(or larger) stream rises far to the
northwest of Grand Forks. This
is called the west fork. Two streams
with widely divergent sources unite
which form this main stream. One
of these is called the east fork and
the other the west fork. This main
fork crosses the boundary line in
one place and after serpentine me-
anderings recrnsses into British Columbia. After both streams unite
below Grand Forks, the river flown
southward and empties into the Columbia about a mile-and-a-half below the little railroad town of Marcus, which stands on the south side
of the latter stream. The other
branch of Kettle river is known as
the North Fork. As in the case of
the west branch, two small streams
iinite which form the main stream.
One is known as the east and tbe
other the west fork. Thus, in rea li-
ty the stream above the grand forks
has four forks or sources. Below
the grand forks there are a few
tributaries, the principal one being
Christina creek at Cascade, which
gives vent to the waters of Christina lake one-and-one-half miles
north of that gateway town. Grand
Forks stand two miles north of the
international boundary. Twelve
miles below is located Cascade. To
this point the Great Northern surveyors have located a line from the
mouth of Kettle river, a distance
of about 30 miles. More than two
weeks ago (now about four weeks)
the line between Cascade and Midway was located by the surveyors.
This part of the line follows the
main west fork of Kettle river for
a considerable distance. Between
Cascade and the mouth of Kettle
river the valley narrows down. At
Cascade the stream passes through
a rocky gorge and plunges over an
abrupi precipice, making a beautiful and picturesque cascade, not
only this but it constitute) one of
the most magnificent waterpowers
in this province, and which is being
developed by capitalists for the
purpose of supplying electric light
and power to the whole Boundary
country. Northwest of Grand Forks
there is considerable go d agricultural land. The country iB generally high and rolling, and the soil
dark and furtile. There are a number of good farms and some fine
fruit ranches in that region. Between Grand Forks and Cascade
are also excellent farming lands,
and many ranches are scattered
through the country.
There is a good wagon road leading from Grand Forks down to the
mouth of Kettle river through Cascade, which is traveled a great deal.
It is the principal outlet in getting
down to the Columbia at Marcus
and other points.
As. yet there are comparatively
few white settlers between the Columbia and Cascade. Indians and
halfbloods compose the principal
population. Some 12 miles above
the mouth of the stream iB quite a
settlement of eemidomesticated si-
washes 'and mixed bloods. No extensive efforts are made to cultivate
the soil. At wide intervals are
email ranches where white people
live. At Hall's Ferry and at other
points along the valley are places
where traders and teamsters can
remain over night and be comfortably entertained.
Throughout its length the valley
is hedged in by mountains which,
in placet-, tower many hundreds of
feet and are rocky and precipitous.
These mountains contain more or
less mineral wealth. Hundreds of
claims are staked out all along the
valley and the mountains. Tbe
majority of these claims have never
heen worked. Very little if any
ore has been hauled out. Capital
to operate these locations and want
of railroad facilities to transport
the output have hitherto been the
two great obstacles.
Concerning the projected railroad
the engineers have found a feasible
route from the mouth up to Cascade. It will be necessary to cross
the stream several times, but the
matter of bridging will not be serious, or involve heavy costs, as the
river is not wide. The question of
grades, it is claimed, is not a difficult one to overcome. In many
places the mountains press down
upon the stream, and it will be
necessary to make some heavy side-
cuts through rocky walls. There
will be some fills and considerable
trestle work. However, It is asserted on good authority, that the
average cost of the construction of
the 30 miles of road up Kettle river
will not be unusually heavy.
That the road which is to give
Spokane direct railway connection
with the new Eldorado will be
built along the valley of the Kettle
river is a foregone conclusion. But
the less important question of when
the Columbia will be bridged, is
still held in abeyance. Whether
the stream will be spanned at the
Kettle Falls or above at the little
town of Marcus haa not yet been
made public by the railway official*.

Victoria Times:
It is impossible to write about
agriculture without incurring the
risk of writing platitudes. The
newspaper editor realizes that on
this subject he is scarcely likely to
write things that are both good and
new. Specialists in every branch
of agricultural pursuits have well
nigh exhausted the field of inquiry
and discussion. An occupation
that is co-existent with our race���
for Adam was placed in Eden "to
dress it and keep it"���is hardly
likely to have escaped the most
searching investigation by competent experts.
The Times is not desiriout, of
offering advice to the practical agriculturalist. The management of
dairying, cereal-producing, fruit or
poultry raising, presents a tempting
field for the theorist, but���our readers will commend us for our forbearance���we firmly decline the
It is necessary to point out again
and again thut the production of
farm produce, cattle, sheep, hogs,
butter, cheese, poultry, cereal*, is
not keeping pace with the growth
of the population in this province1*.
Manufactures have increased, commerce has grown, shipping has expanded, mining has made gigantic
strides, railways are multiplying,
but agriculture has moved very
slowly. Yet the most necessary,
permanent and useful employment
of any country is that of farming.
When all other sources of income
fail, that of food producing remains. The department of agriculture should rightly be considered one of the most important of
the administration.
Why, then, is farming at a standstill; or, to be more accurate, why
does it move so slowly ? Here, at
the very doors of the farmer, is a
market that will consume every
pound of grain that can be rair-ed,
and all sundry products of the farm.
True it is, there may he an over
production of certain classes of
fruit, but this is only apparent,
because we have no factories to dry
or prepare evaporated fruits.
It must be admited and is equally
true of all governments, tbat too
little encouragement is given to the
farmer. Railways are subsidised,
mining has its great chances of
gain, shipping receives government
help, manufactures are often bonus-
ed, but whoever proposes to bonus*,
subsidize or aid the farmer ?
Consider the great difficulties a
settler on the land meets with in
the inception of his enterprise.
His land is heavily timbered, or
intersected with rocks, or surrounded with swamps, or is far distant
from railways or roads: To clear
timbered land will cost from $40 to
$100 per acre. To drain marshy
or swampy land will cost a like-
amount. Much of his farm is unproductive. The government looks
askance upon his request for roads,
not knowing whether the few struggling settlers will remain in the
district or abandon tbe ranches to
their primeval solitude. Agricultural implements are very expen- THE   CASCADE   RECORD

sive. To stock a farm of one hun
dred acres takes quite a respectable
sum of money. In order to fairly
start upon a quarter section of wild
land near Victoria it is necessary
that the farmer have a capital of
from (3,000 to $5,000, and this
needs to be most economically and
judiciously expended.
Is it not reasonable, therefore,
that the government should do
something to help the farmers ? Is
it not just that agriculture should
.receive the fostering care of the
state? Ought not the Minister of
Agriculture to lay before the Legislature a policy that shall give in
the original industry an impetus
that shall be of lasttng benefit to
'the Province, and presuming he
���has not collected sufficient data to
-do this at the coming session, is it
not desirable that he should at
���once take steps to make himself
practically acquainted with the requirements and difficulties of the
average farmer ?
The Times respectfully urges the
Dunsmuir government to make diligent enquiry into the whole subject, fearing neither the criticism of
the economic alarmist on the one
band nor the effusive support of
4he socialistic on the other, but
looking only to the development of
a source of wealth that is destined
to have a great future in this province if properly assisted and conserved. The appointment of a
Royal Commission is often an. easy
way to shelve responsibility, yet it
may he possible that the appointment of a thoroughly competent
and independent commission might
bring about tbe solution of many
of the problems we have hinted at
in the lines above written.

We are reminded that our
statement last week relative to
railway bonuses overreached a
little. I,t is stated that the C.
P. R. was favored with a $92,-
000 bonus for its Lardeau
branch. There can be no
doubt but such a bonus���a
re-vote, it is said���was granted
if applied for by that monopoly, as it seems it can have anything it may desire from the
Dominion government. The
discouraging feature of the
railway situation in British Columbia to-day, especially in the
Boundary, Similkameen and
Okanagan sections���the most
promising portions of the prov-
vince���is that both the local
and federal governments seem
determined to favor the long-
haul sinch, by denyiug aid and
privileges to all proposed competitive enterprises. This is
a condition unpleasant to contemplate, when it is remembered that Sir Van Home, with
the enormous profits wrung
from the Canadian people by
the aid of their governments,
is seeking to invest the surplus so obtained in railway
schemes to develope the island
of Cuba, a foreign territory.
The Victoria Colonist is doing a good service to the whole
province in its efforts to enlighten its readers by a series
of articles relative to the vast
territory comprised within the
boundaries of this province, its
inexhaustible resources and
opportunities for development,
The articles are entitled "British Coulumbia,'1 and containing as they do in narrative
form valuable geographical,
historical and statistical information, and coming as they do
from a conservative and reliable source, are highly meritorious, notwithstanding Mr. H.
Hirshchell-Cohen's vigorous
dissent. They should be carefully perused by all having the
opportunity to do so.
Thos. Ir. Johnson, ex-United
States Representative, now the
Mayor of Cleveland, Ohio, and
frequently announced as the
next probable candidate of the
Democratic party for president
is pronounced by Munsey's
magazine as being the most
paradoxical man in the United
States. Though a multi-millionaire he is an enthusiastic
worker for Single Tax; a manufacturer of steel rails and an
advocate for Free Trade; an
owner of several street railways, yet a believer in municipal ownership of these lines.
From a poor urchin selling
newspapers for a livelihcod he
has beoome rich, having amassed a fortune of from ten to
twenty millions of dollars. He
is an inventor of no mean
ability, having invented the
"Nickel-in-the-Slot" box for
receiving car fares, an automatic switch, a car-fender, and
a pattern of steel rails which
has been almost universally
adopted. Though an employer of 3000 men he has never
had a strike. He conducts his
affairs and makes his money
under existing laws and conditions and as a matter of business, but advocates Free
Trade, Single Tax and Municipal Ownership through
principle, having the honesty,

Fatal State AccMent Near Camp McKinney.
Information reached here Thursday that the mail stage running
from Camp McKinney to Greenwood plunged into Jelly creek, four
miles from McKinney, that morning. Driver Andrew Kirkland's
neck was broken and he was instantly killed. Henry Nicholson,
J P., and Mrs. Buners, both of
Camp McKinney, were injured.
Henry Black, of Portage la Prairie,
another passenger, escaped without
injury. The driver lost control of
the powerful four-horse team while
going down the steep pitch above
the creek. They missed the bridge
and horses and wagon plunged into the creek below. Kirkland's
body and the injured passengers
were taken back to McKinney.

Spring is lingering altogether too
long in the lap of slimmer. Snow
fulling on the near-by mountains
in June is something unusual hereabouts, and to which the farmers
take exception.
As^near as we can get at the matter with our reportorial forceps we
are inclined tn thii.k the pole-contract was Becured by theGenelles, in
which case Cascade will get little
profit out of it.
The Tammany Mining company
with headquarters at Rossland and
good mineral properties in Burnt
Basin, now claims to have $10,000
in its treasury, which will be applied to development work.
Managing Direotor J. Roderick
Rubertsnn, and Engineer Anderson
took a trip over the pole line between this place and Phoenix this
week previous to awarding the contract for the furnishing, of the poles
to be used in carrying the wires.
Owing to heavy rains on the
mountains between Kettle Falls
and Republic nearly all the freighting Is being done via Marcus and
Cascade, Great Northern surveyors have about completed their
wort at Marcus and active operations are looked for at any time. It
is expected a cable transfer will be
put in, perhaps the Bame one that
was used at Northport by the old
Qeorfr McKufo Retards To Cascade.
George McKugo, who left Cascade
some eighteen months ago and went
to South Africa as a member of the
Strathcona Horse, returned here
last Wednesday, hale and hearty,
looking none the worse for his experiences in the stirring scenes on
the veldts and kopjes of the Transvaal. He has some interesting
reminiscences, which he relates to
eager listeners. Says he was in
several lively as well as deathly
engagements, and the Boers are
fierce fighters and stoic and sulky
stayers. Mr. McKugo intends to
remain here if he can find employment.	
Contract. Slfacd.
It is reported that W. C. Morris
and associates signed contracts in
Spokane last Tuesday for work on
the Republic-Grand Forks railway,
ami it was then stated that work
would'begin thereon the following
day, and that a thousand men were
to he set to work within a .month.
This enterprise is thought by many
to be backed hy the C. P. R., but
this is emphatically denied at the
Forks. Others say the affair is a
bluff to cnerce ihe Great Northern
to buy out the local promoters and
immedately build the desired line,
and yet, in the event of failure by
the G. N. to act, the local company
would undertake the work. However this may be, there is very little
doubt but that a year hence a completed railway between the mouth
of Kettle river and Republic via
Cascade will be in active operation.
Embark, la the Poultry Business.
Tuesday  Mr.  Geo  C   Rose    received by express from Mr. J.  Onr-
raher of Grand Forks a  brace of;
domestic birds, a  rooster and  ben ;

so had to make temporary arrangements.    From   these confines   tin

after his collapse in an effort to effect   a   capture  of the miniature
cackters.    Upon reflection Mr. Rose
remembered  that several   month."
ago Mr. Carraher had threatened to
forward these birds, to which he demurred then and there, but it seems
the demurrer  was overruled, and
Mr. Rose is now in the poultry business on a miuiuture scale.
The British America Corporation does Into
Voluntary Liquidation.
A London dispatch stales that
the shareholders of the British America Corporuiit.n agreed to go into
voluntary liquidation. The corporation was closely urliliuted with
the London and Globe Finance
Corporation, Ltd., whose suspension
in December last caused so much
excitement on the Stock Exchange.
Lord Dufferin was a direotor of the
British America as well as of the
Luiiuon and Globe Corporation. As
this was only a promoting concern
und not a mine working institution,
its collapse will have no effect upon tbe mining industry of the province, unless its scope of operations
be misunderstood. Its failure is
not due to unprofitable mining, but
to lack of success in promoting flotations or sales that would give the
concerns big returns. We once
heard a foppish young man of
Spokane boast that tie hud cleaned
up $17,000 in two months by promoting mining companies in British Columbia. Such as these make
the success of bona tide mining
enterprises ull the more difficult to
secure capital with which to develop genuine mineral properties.

William O'Brien, the well-known
iiilractor of  Kindt and   Phoenix
was in Cascade Monday in connec-
iii with the matter of a tender
which he had put in for furnishing
|inles for the wireway of the Cits-
1'iide Water Power & Light coin-
|ntnv- During the afternoon he
went to the wicket at the depot to
enquire whether it would be pos-;
sible for him to get passage on a j
freight for his home town. At'
sight the agent, Mr. D. O'Connor,
recognized him as his uncle whom
he hud not seen for eight years and
had not the least suspicion of his
being in this part of the country.
Their meeting was a great surprise
to both. Mr. O'Brien was invited
to visit Mrs. O'Connor and the
baby, and so well pleased was he
with this revelation Baby O'Connor
was made the recipient of a $20
gold piece. Mr. O'Brien forgot all
about his aniety to get out of town,
and passed the balance of the day
in tht* company of his newly found
relatives. He is a contractor with
much experience und considerable
note, and among hie prominent
works may be mentioned the noted
the big Louzougn dam near ^alu<*
met, Mich. He visited the big dam
here, pronouncing it a remarkably
substantial affair. Mr. O'Brien said
be had been reasonably successful
in business matters in this part of
the country which, he thought afforded excellent opportunities for
acquiring wealth and, though his
family,except a son who is his business partner, is still at Renfrew,
Ont.. he will send for them and
take up a permanent residence in
the Boundary.

Breen aud the Dominion Copper Co.
The following appeared in the
Rossland Miner of Monday, dispatched from Greenwood:
"James Breen, of the Dominion
Copper company, has been in the
district for some time, traveling up
and down between here and Phoenix, Asked where the company's
proposed smelter is to be located, he
eaid he didn't know. A portion of
the company's land at Phoenix has
been platted, and will shortly be
placed on the market. Inside lots
on Dominion avenue will probably
sell for $750 and $1,000 for corner
lots. It is rumored that the Great
Northern depot at Phoenix will be
located on the Idaho claim, owned
by the company, An idea prevails
that the company will finally select
a site for the proposed reduction
works at Carson, near Grand Forks.
At least it is pointed out that Mr.
Breen is desirous of locating as
near as possible to the Boundary
line, and the reason Carson is suggested is bceauBe the proposed
Great Northern route into Phoenix
camp is to be via Fourth of July
oreek. However there is nothing
authentic in these reports."
Republic Bunk ind Boarding Houses Destroyed By Fire.
Friday afternoon of last week a
fire broke out in the kitchen at the
Republic mine boarding house and
spreading rapidly, totally destroyed that and the bunk house within an hour, says the Republic
The place was almost deserted at
the time the fire started, and but
little was saved. Four miners were
sleeping in the bunk house when
the fire started.
An alarm was rung in, but not
until the boarding house was a
miVes of flames and the bunk house
already attacked by the devouring
element. The chemical engines
were takea in tow by ti farm wagon
but before Ninth street was reached
one of them was overturned and
out of the race.
The buildings were owned by the
Republic company, and the boarding house was run by Richard E.
Davis, who is a heavy loser. A
large supply of grocer ies and pro
visions were destroyed.
Mr. Davis carried $1,000 insurance on his furniture and fixtures.
The buildings were insured for $;v
What few articles were saved
from the bunk house were thrown
from the burning building by Ed.
Lowery, who climbed to the upper
windows on the outside and succeeded in entering several of the
rooms and throwing the miners' effects out of the window.
The outlook in South Africa is
anything but cheering. Severe battles have recently been fought in
which honors were about even between British and Doers. These, too,
near Johannesburg!]. This does not
look like no immediate collapse of
the Boer wiir.
