deuce lor Supt Anderson.
Word has been received by Superintendent Wm. Anderson, of the
Cascade Water Power Co., hy cable
from the head office in London, to
let a contract at once for the clearing of the right of way for the pole
line from Phoenix towards Cascade.
Accordingly, an advertisement appears in this issue of the Record,
caning for tenders to clear the five
miles of timber, the rest of the line
being mostly open country.
Mr. Anderson states that he expects orders daily to begin work,
not only on the partly constructed
dam, but on the power house itself,
the long flume and the pole line.
The latter at first will be about 25
miles long, and will cost $3,000 per
mile. In addition to this Mr. Anderson is now preparing plans for
a residence for himself, t*be4o��nt��#'

1 if l: .
But the Railway Station Will be in the
City of Cohunbia.
Engineer Tye and Secretary Drlnkwater of
tbe C. P. R. Arranged the Matter Yeiter.
day at Mayor Mauley's Town.
Grand Forks is jubilant and
happy. The railway station, which
is located in Columbia was to be
called Upper Grand Forks, the center of the siding being exactly
4,500 feet from the river and a mile
and three quarters from the Yale
hotel in the Forks. But yesterday,
after considerable negotiating, it
was decided to call the station
Grand Forks���pure and simple.
The story is interesting.
It seems that the railway people
and the city authorities of the
Forks clashed somewhat on the location of the right of way, which
cut through the upper corner of
the townsite and then swung
around into Columbia, where the
only station was to have been built
for the use of both towns. This, of
couriJe, highly elated thr Columbia
people at the time, but displeased
the residents of Mayor Manley's
town to a degree.
dot a Cinch and Used It
However, the Porkers had a
trump card up their collective
sleeve. While the railway company had bought outright the
right of way in the small portion
of the Grand Forks municipality
traversed, and had the grading
done, permission to cro/s the main
travelled road or street, and change
the grade, had not been secured.
It is also said to be the law, that
Only by an appeal to the Dominion
government direct, in case of a refusal by ii municipality to permit
a railway to occupy a street, can
the matter be adjusted. This
meant much delay and red tape,
but local courts have no jurisdiction in such matters.
The contractors had cut down
the wagon road, near the bridge at
Columbia, some two or three feet,
to conform to their grade. Last
week the city authorities of Grand
Forks filled it in. This soon
brought Chief Engineer Tye to the
scene, and he was told that, if he
would give Grand Forks a depot of
its own across the river, they would
he satisfied; otherwise, it was no go.
Engineers at once began surveys
to leave Grand Forks out entirely,
although it would cost considerable, and entail some delay.
Both Sides Made Concessions.
Yesterday, however, Mr. Tye,
accompaied by Chas. Drink water,
secretary of the railway company,
who happened to be in Rossland,
came over on a special train, met
the Grand Forks authorities, and
arranged the above mentioned
agreement.   The station will   re
main in Columbia, but. will be
called by the name of the lower
town. While Grand Forks does
not get the station any nearer, is
gets the name, a most valuable
consideration. Just how the Columbia people wilt like this does
not yet appear, but unless this arrangement is upset at Montreal, it
will be carried out.
And thus the threatened war between Grand Forks and the C. P,
R., the talk of injunction, the
building around it entirely, and
most important of all the delay
that might ensue when the track
is near there, has all been avoided.
Grand Forks has, in a measure,
gained its point, and so has the C.
P. R. Columbia must make the
best of it.
Mr. Tye and Mr. Drinkwater re*
turned to Cascade last night and
left at eight o'clock on a special
train for Trail.
Eleven passengers came in on

Roberts at the lever and Conductor
Haney in charge of the train,

track crew pushed out for Grand
Forks, some 13 miles away. They
were behind the estimated schedule

Ore Output tor 1899.
An interesting table is just published by the Nelson Tribune to
show that so far this year ore, to
the approximate value of 13,562,-
000 has heen sent to the' smelters.
Last year West Kootenay produced
ore of the market value of $6,042,-
976. The present output is of the
approximate value of $150,000 a

remainder of the year, would make
the output for 1899 worth $6,500,-
000. This is a fairly good record

To paraphrase a saying of Solo-
man, "Of the making of townsites,
there iB no end." Within a radius
of perhaps thirty miles from Cascade, the intending investor can
have his pick of lots in over a
score of townsites���all as it were,
���'estined to he future Rosslands or
Beginning on the east, there is
Melvillle, on the Dewdney trail;
Gladstone, near the Burnt Basin;
English Point, where there is a settlement; Christina City, Minton
and Moodyville, near the foot of
Chrixtina lake, (the last two in a
semi-moribund state); then come.*
Cascade and Russell. Continuing
west, the townsites grow in number.
Grand Forks and Columbia, Volcanic City, Niagara, Eholt, Summit, Phoenix, Hartford, New York,
Boundary City, Greenwood, Anaconda, Boundary Falls and Midway, follow in rapid succession.
There are also Nelson and Carson,
to say nothing of a few others.
In case this assortment does not
offer variety enough, the searcher
after bonanzas in reality will find
a fresh crop of townsites springing
up on the main Kettle and West
Fork, as well as farther on towards
Camp McKinney, Penticton and
Hope. There seems to be little
- likelihood of there being a dearth
of townsiting propositions for some
time to come, as in numerous cases
not mentioned land has been
staked out with this end in view.
The city of Grand Forks raised
a great hue and cry last winter,
which was heard even in the legislative halls at Ottawa, because an
was alleged, that lively burg had
been wantonly ignored and sidetracked by the C. P. R. in the survey for the new railway. There
are two sides to every etory, and
this is no exception. Now, that
the track-layers are within 15 miles
of the town, it is said the city objects because the railway people
have arranged to cross a corner of
the municipality, and that the objection is in tangible form. To a
man up a tree it appears as if the
Forkers had changed their minds,
and decided that they preferred to
have no railway at all, and that
they may be accommodated.

"I believe tbe first shipment of
ore to go from the Boundary country to the smelters over the new
railway, will be shipped from Gladstone," said a prominent mining
man th.e other day. There will
undoubtedly be many shipments
from that point.
The traveling public is wondering when the passenger service on
the new railway line will begin.
It is safe to say that it will be instituted at the earliest possible
moment, as the C. P. R. is more

Some persons assume to know a
good deal nowadays, gleaned from

to the intentions of smelter builders in the Boundary country. All

Perhaps no one man is more iu
the public eye in the Boundary
than Jay P. Graves, the "man behind the guns" in some of the largest undertakings now under way
in this section. Mr. Graves was
in Cascade Wednesday, and told
something of the progress ou his
big properties, the Old Ironsides
and Knob Hill, iu Greenwood
camp, from which shipments will
commence this coming winter. He
is undoubtedly one of the most successful operators in the Boundary,
and it has: all been done within a
few years. At the height of the
Spokane boom in '92 he was accounted a millionaire from his
realty holdings alone, but the panic
of '93 was no respecter of persons,
and he bad plenty of company.
Then he immediately turned to

section was dependent for stability,

for many years���mostly downs;
but in the course of his life he hat
made many warm friends among
those whom he. has befriended in
the course of his Work of rescuing fellow men. He is a veteran of the
American civil war, but says he is
good for many a battle yet, if he

The Columbia Review failed to
appear, as usual last week, and has
evidently joined the great majority
in the journalistic graveyard. R.
M. Nisbet, the publisher, was also
responsible for the appearance of
the late more-or-less lamented
Cascade Maple Leaf, the Slocan
Sun and the Kuskonook Searchlight���all of which met untimely
deaths.1 No announcement has
heen made as to where or when
Boh will break out again, but he
will doubtless he heard from in
due time.
'.Charles Drinkwater, the secretary of the Canadian Pacific Railway Co., arrived in Cascade on the
special train Thursday night, in
company with Chief Engineer Tye,
of the Columbia & Western. They
were bound, for Grand Forks, in
the effort to straighten out the
grade crossing difficulty. Mr.
Drinkwater is one of the oldest
officials of the C. P. R., and this
is his first trip into the Boundary
country.     \ j

Brace White Bays Promlslai Properties tor
Bruce White, the millionaire
mine owner of the Slocan, who
recently sold the Slucan Star for
$3,000,000, is becoming interested
in the I'ierre lake district, about 12
miles from Cascade. A few day*,
ago, through W. R. Ramsdell, of
Boseiburg, Mr. White purchased
from H. C. Gibbon", George Walker, W. H. McKay and J. O Argall
their interests in the First Thought,
Annex, Defender and Homestake,
near Pierre lake, John Ranahan,
one of the owners, still retains his
interest in the group. The consideration was $25,000. Ten per cent
was paid down and the balance is
to be p>id in installments inside of
a year. '
' This property has an immense
surface showing, there being a
ledge Of porphyry from 60 to 90
feet wide, assaying on an average
from $5 to $10 in gold. There has
been comparatively little work
done on the property. The new
owners have already begun development work. Harry Williams, a
competent mine superintendent,
has charge.
Owners of properties in Pierre
lake section are to he congratulated
on getting a man of Mr. White's
standing interested there, as he has
heen a most successful operator.
While little work has yet been
done on his Pierre lake acquisition,
there in said to he every indication
of it proving to be a bonanza with
Tuesday's Laws Social.
After being postponed once, the
lawn social which was to have been
held at Mrs. Stocker's residence
last Tuesday, took place in the
annex to the Grand Central hotel.
The ladies of the Presbyterian
church got up the affair for the
benefit of the pastor, Rev. J. McCoy, and were gratified at the successful outcome.      i;
A large audience was present and
enjoyed the impromptu music and
games which were held. Refreshments, in the shape of ice cream
and cake were served, the net proceeds amounting to about $25.
Land Close to Cascade Will Sooa be Throws
Opes to Settlers.
It appears probable that the
north half of the Colville Indian
reservation will be thrown open to
'ettlement by whites this winter.
The work of allotting the lands
to the Indians already on the tract
has commenced. Harry Humphries
and W. E. Casson, alloting agentF,
with Major Anderson, the Indian
agent at Fort Spokane, are in
charge of the work.
There are about 700 Indians
altogether on the north half. Each
of them will have 80 acres of land,
chosen by the nborigines themselves. Already about 200 have
taken farms in allotment, so that
only 500 remain to draw their
ranches. Thus over the entire
north half, amounting to 1,500,000
acres, the natives will retain only
about 56,000 acres. The rest will
he opened to homestead entry hy
the whites, and the land to lie
thrown open includes some of the
finest farming and ranching lands
in the northwest, while* some magnificent timber reserves will also
be available.
It is expected that the allotting
will be concluded this fall, and
that within 90 days after the locations are filed the remaining land*
will be thrown open to settlement.
Rick Slocan Ores.
Many have heard of the richness
of the silver ores of the Slocan
country, but few have an idea of
how rich these ores are. By a careful computation it was recently
shown that the average assay value
of several thousand tons of ore
from different mines in the Slocan,
which ore was treated at the several
smelting plants in and out of Canada, ran about 125 ounces of silver
and 45 per cent lead to the ton,
which would represent, taking the
price of the metals at their present
values, some $113 to the ton.���Nelson Miner.

Several Rock creek properties
are expected to be under development in the near future.
The steam hoist having been installed on the Snowehoe, Greenwood camp, the shaft is being deepened.   It is already down 180 feet.
An immense copper ledge, assaying 17 per cent copper has been
uncovered in the Mountain View
in Summit camp. It is under bond
to a Montreal syndicate.
Tho new miners' union at Phoenix has 54 members and that at

On the Maple Leaf, one of the
Rathmullen group on the north
fork of Kettle river, there is one 70

exposed 40.000 tons of $25 ore,
averaging 10 per cent copper, 5
ounces silver and $1 in gold.
The lead has been found on the
property of the Norway Mountain
