No. 22.
The Prince of Wales Fired Upon by
a Belgian Anarchist.
With tbe Princess to Attend the Celebration
of King Christian's Birthday-The Prince
will not now Attend the Paris Exposition
Brussels, April 4.���The prince
and princess of Wales were on their
way to Copenhagen this morning
for the purpose of attending the
celebration of king Christian's
birthday, which occurs April 13th.
when, as the train was leaving the
northern station for the Southern
Railway station, an individual
fired a revolver at the prince of
Wales, but missed his royal highness.
Intense excitement prevailed for
the moment, as it was feared the
prince had been hit, the shots having been fired almost point blank.
The railway carriage door was hastily thrown open, and great relief
was felt when the prince appeared
at the window unhurt. Both the
prince and princess, however, had a
very narrow escape. The policeman on duty took Sipido in charge.
The latter appeared proud of his
exploit and seemed quite calm. He
said to the authorities that he lived
on the Rue de la Forge at Saint
Gilles, two miles south of Brussels.
The would-be assassin is a tinsmith named Sipido, a resident of
Brussels, 16 years of age. In his
pocket was found a great deal of
anarchist literature. He fired two
shuts at the prince. The princess
of Wales and others were in the car,
but no one was touched. When examined by the railroad officials Sipido declared he intended to kill the
prince of Wales, and that he did not
regret his action. He was ready to
do it again if given the chance.
Hearing shots, the station master
rushed to the scene and knocked up
the would-be assassin's arm as he
prepared to fire the third shot, and
a number of persons threw themselves on the prince's assailant. In
the confusion a second man who was
innocent, was siezed, roughly treated and beaten. After the prince had
ascertained that the man who fired
the shots was arrested, he declared
himself and the princess uninjured,
and the train started. Sipido subsequently said he wanted to kill the
prince of Wales "because he caused
thousands of men to be slaughtered
in South Africa."
London, April 4.���The marquis
of Salisbury immediately telegraphed the prince of Wales his
congratulation on his narrow escape from death, and the United
States charge d'affaires, Henry
White, who was calling on the
British premier and minister of
foreign affairs at the time, promptly
repaired to Malborough House and
left his card. At Malborough
House General Sir Dighton M.
Probyn, comptroller of the household of the prince of Wales, said to
a representative of the Associated
Press that nothing had been received beyond the mere statement
of the fact that an attempt has
been made on the life of the prince
of Wales. All the officials were
greatly disturbed by the occurrence
and the general view was that it
must be connected in some manner
with the Transvaal, especially as
the prince has always been such a
favorite on the continent and never
before has been molested in the
slightest degree.
One official remarked : "That settles the question of the prince's visit
to the Paris exposition."
Some fears were expressed as to
the effect the occurrence may have
in Dublin. It was pointed out that
such attempts were contagious. On
the other hand, those who are best
acquainted with Ireland contend the
effect would be to increase the determination of Irishmen that no untoward incident should mar the
success of the queen's visit. The
news of the attempt on the life of
the prince was immediately telegraphed to queen Victoria. The
dispatch announcing the attempt
on the life of the prince was posted
at the Mansion House and attracted
crowds without numbers, who expressed their feelings by alternately
anathematizing the assailant and
cheering the prince.
Rescued 91 British Prisoners.
Development Work on the Mascot.
The Gribi brothers are still developing the Mascot, and every
blast shows improved prospects.
The rock is all highly mineralized.
The hornblend, wall rock and white
quartz must surely indicate a ledge
not far distant, and if found where
expected, it will run parallel with
the railway bed, directly under it.
Transportation a Vital Factor.
The $200,000 bond on the famous
Manila group of mineB near Keller
held by Patrick Clark, has been extended to give Mr. Clark time to
learn from J. J. Hill of the Great
Northern railway when he proposes
to commence construction work on
his railway line through that country. 	
Clark & Sweeny Dissolve.
The Daily Mail has the following from Bloemfontein dated Tuesday April 3: "Colonel' Porter with
90 carbineers and Scots Greys and
two guns performed a brilliant deed
Sunday. He charged a large body
of Beers and rescued 91 British
prisoners including 11 officers who
were captured the previous day. No
casualties on the British side."
There were no Canadians killed
at Bushman's kop.
Bowden Goes to Penitentiary.
H. H. Bowden, the Halls Mines
clerk accused of embezzlement,
pleaded guilty Tuesday in the Nelson court of fraudulently appropriating $2,300 of the company's
money, and was sentenced to two
years' servitude in the penitentiary.
The well-known Spokane firm of
Clark & Sweeny has dissolved. P.
Lewis Clark retiring. Charles
Sweeny will continue the business
in his own name. The dissolution
of the partnership comes from the
desire of Mr. Clark to withdraw
from active business, on account of
his health, which has been poor for
some time.
By a deed filed in the Spokane
county auditor's office Tuesday,
for an expressed consideration of
$300,000, Mr. Sweeny deeded his
interests in the partnership real
estate in Spokane to Mr. Clark.
Mr. Sweeny has become the owner,
on the other hand, of all of Mr.
Clark's interests in mining properties in which the firm has been
jointly interested. Among the
principal mining properties held or
controlled by the firm of Clark &
Sweeny are: The Empire-State
Idaho (properly known is the Last
Chance, and situated at Wardner,
Idaho;) the Tiger-Poorman, at
Burke, Idaho; the Big Buffalo and
about 20 others in Buffalo Hump

Quite a number of newspapers,
The Record among the rest, taking
the Rossland Miner for authority,
published accounts last week of reductions in freight rates on the
Columbia & Western railway. The
statements made were erroneous,
as the railway company was substituted for the Dominion Express
company. The rates quoted as
those of the railway should have
been stated as those of the express
company. As it wsb, it canted the
agents along the road to wonder
whether they or the editors were
The Trail Creek News is advertised for sale.
A big mining deal has been on
the tapis in Cascade this week, A
representative of the great Montreal
Mining Syndicate, in which C. J.
McCuaig is a prominent figure, was
in town Wednesday and Thursday,
closing a contract with John Beas-
ley and J. A. Heard for options on
the Zoie Belle and Little Jack, two
claims just across the line in the
direction of Hall's Ferry, about
four miles from town.
As near as we can make out the
deal was consummated inthe following manner: The Montreal syndicate, for an option of 90 days, is to
begin development work on the
claims within 30 days, and to employ four men in such work 60
days. In two equal amounts the
owners are to be paid abont $12,-
000 for the claims. The specimens
of ore taken from the claims which
were exhibited here are rich indications. The work on these claims
so far done consists of a 22-foot
shaft, a 14-foot tunnel and two
crosscuts of 21 and 30 feet respectively, splendid ore being encountered in all directions.
The mining industry in the-
Boundary and Republic districts is
growing more active and substantial, and confidence in these mineral
fields is daily being more firmly
established, and the development
works and prospecting going on in
the numerous claims about thiit
place gives assurance to the claim
that Cascade is in the right place,
and the surrounding conditions-
most propitious.
Col. Broadwood Defeated.
April 1st, Col. Broadwood was

38 miles east of Bloemfontein, and

A Newspaper Row In Columbia.
The following dispatch was published in the Rossland Miner of
March 31st :
The Review, issued in Columbia.
B.C.,closed publication two months
ago, but this afternoon a special
edition was issued at the supposed
instigation of some Grand Forks
parties, violently attacking the
financial standing und future prospects of Columbia. Mayor McCul-
lum swore out an information
against Robert Nesbit, the proprietor of the paper, for defamatory
libel, with the result that Nesbit is
now in the cells. Prospects are
very bright for Columbia at present.
Naturally the citizens are incensed
at the dastardly attack.
It Might be Good to Remove Wrinkles, Too.
It may lie news to some that persistent rubbing with oil, night and
morning, will remove scars. Olive
oil will answer, hut nentsfoot oil
is rather more rapid in its effects.
In case of bums, when the tendons
are stiff and contracted, rubbing
with oil will render the part affected almost as supple as before the
injury. In severe cases the rubbing must be continued for an hour
morning and evening. It would
not be dangerous to try this prescription on the wrinkles that frequently adorn the faces of prematurely old people.
Nearly one hundred men were
put on at the Granite, Poorman
and Athabasca mines in Nelson
district Monday. Preference in all
instances was given to the men
who quit work.
Fourteen Hundred Silly Women.
Picton, Ontario, April 2.���Geo.
VV. Piatt, manager of the Co-operative Employment Association of
Canada was committed for trial by
the police magistrate here on Saturday on the charge of using the
mails with intent to defraud. The
facts in the case furnish an interesting story. About a fortnight
ago an advertisement appeared in
the Toronto papers stating that a
young lady of good appearance
was wanted as a companion to a
lady going to the Paris, France
exhibition, with a salary of fifty
dollars per month for six months
and all expenses paid. Address
George W. Piatt, Picton. Numerous complaints from parties
answering the advertisement reaching the attorney-general's department, Inspector Rogers was detailed to look into the case. It was
ascertained that no less than fourteen hundred applications had
been sent in for the position, seven
hundred applicants forwarding
their photographs. A few days
after forwarding their names the
applicants received a circular which
among other things, said that if a
fee of $2 to cover the expense of
advertising, etc., and an agreement
to send twenty per cent commission
out of the first month's salary were
sent, the applicant would be recommended. Of the eight hundred to
whom this circular was forwarded
about fifty had sent the necessary
two dollars, when the law stepped
in. A large number of the applicants were members of well-known
Toronto families.

charge of the Record for the past
five months, is the new proprietor

long and varied experience in the
newspaper business, and who is
consequently well fitted for the
The undersigned, who has conducted the Record for the last year
and a half, takes this occasion to
thank the people of Cascade and
vicinity for their hearty and unanimous support of the Record in the
past, and to request a continuence
of the same under the management
of Mr. Turner.
All subscriptions due at this date
ars payable to Mr. Turner and all
advertising accounts to April 1st
1900, will be collected by the undersigned.   Very Truly,
W. B. Willcox.
In taking upon ourself the task
���of continuing the publication of
The Record from the point where
its former publisher lays it down
we feel that it will prove an undertaking requiring the utmost effort
on our part to mainlian the excellent character and standing the
paper has heretofore enjoyed. To
what extent we shall succeed in
this respect time will reveal.
However, it shall be our constant
purpose and effort to make for The
Record a hearty welcome to the
home circle of every household in
this and surrounding communities;
to serve its constituents; to do our
full part through its columns to
herald, guard and foster the interests of Cascade and its people, and
hope to so merit approval as to be
profited both socially and financially. It shall he our aim to aid in
building up rather than tearing
down, to promote peace and unity
rather than discord and disintegration. That we have decided to locate here permanently and invest
what means may be at our command is evidence of faith in the ultimate outcome with regard to the
future of this promising little town.
We are anxious to deserve and receive the support of every local
business house. To the readers
without our gates the local paper is
the mirror which reflects, in a large
measure, the character of the dwellers within the town from which it
issues. It is a sample, as it were,
sent broad cast, and should be fat
and sleek, made so by liberal support, for its mission is to draw attention, capital and population.
The winds of adversity should never
be permitted to whistle through is
skeleton for the need of that which
is its due,
There are a number of business
houses in Cascade whose advertisements should adorn the columns of
The Record, bringing profit to the
advertiser, as well as solace to the
heart and pocket of the publisher.
Business is improving, prospects are
brightening, and not one of these
firms but can afford an announcement at some figure, and who would
realize a benefit from it either directly or indirectly.
Whether we receive their patronage or not The Record will continue
to do all in its power for the general good, and especially for its
patrons.    ��� H. S. Turner.
The Liberals had a very stormy
time at their preliminary convention meeting hi Vancouver Thursday, which did not recover serenity
the following day. It was reported
that the police were called upon
to restore order by ejecting the
the combative delegates from the
hall. Trouble was in relation to
committee on credentials and admission of proxies.
The Dominion Supply company
had consignments of eggs, oranges
and butter in the wreck on the S.
F. & N. railway Monday. The
grenier part of the 21 cars wrecked
and burned with their contents
contained shipments for the Boundary country. Only one person,
brakeman Dunlap, was injured.
Twenty-four cars fell through the
Deep Creek trestle near Springalo,
Mr. John Earle's salvage boom
which he stretched across the
Kettle river a mile or two above
here, parted the other day and
the escaping logs which it had detained, came down to the boom
above the big dam. Some persons
who saw Mr. Earle building his
boom are now saying "I told you
Cascade, from present indication*
will be well supplied with good
spring water. Messrs. Thomas &
Handy, who are the successors to
the business of Roderick McRae,
have arranged to get their supply
from a spring near the public road
above the dam. It is splendid
water and gives general satisfaction.
Mrs B. Wilcox returned Wednesday from a two-weeks' visit with
friends and relatives in Spokane.
Mr. and Mrs Wilcox are now residing in the McLeod building.
The conservative papers are very
busy nowadays, telling the Liberals
how bad they are and what they
should do to he saved.
There are between sixty and
seventy stalwart Canadian voters
in this neck of the woods whom
candidates will do well to pay a
little heed to.
Mr. C. E. Race, is here organizing the Liberal-Conservative forces.
He appears to be eminently fitted
for the work. He is returning
from a tour of the Boundary towns.
By reference to our advertising
columns, it will be seen that all
Liberal-Conservatives in this vicinity are requested to meet at
Montana hall to-night to elect a
delegate to the Liberal-Conservative convention to be held in
Rossland next Tuesday.

This settlement is on broad lines
and is regarded as permanent.
All mines resume work to-morrow
and shipments will also be resumed.
The settlement of the labor
troubles has resulted in a general
feeling of confidence being restored,
and citizens of all classes are rejoicing to-night. The number of

Hans Hartell Commits Suicide.
Greenwood. B. C, March 31st���
Crazed by drink and in a fit of despondency, Hans Hartell, a clerk in
the Russell Hardware company's
store, committed suicide at his
home at 6 o'clock this evening. He
had not been working for the past
few days on account of drink.
Shortly before 6 o'clock he went
into the store, secured a revolver,
which he loaded and took with him.
Arriving there he went up to the
bedroom, and after endeavoring to
entice his wife into the room, begged her to kiss him good-bye, which
in her fright, she refused to do, he
deliberately shot himself in the
head, falling back onto the bed
and expired instantly. Hartell
eame here about four months ago.
Little is known of him. He was
married ten months.
[Hans Hartell worked in this
city with Hunter Bros, for some
time about a year ago and left
them for the B. A. C, where he had
charge of the store department but
finally quitted this city a few
months since for the Boundary
country. He was considered while
in Rossland to be one of the best
hardware men that was in the
Northwest. His standing was
particularly high in Spokane antecedent to his coming to   British
Columbia. Unfortunately the
trouble which led to bis death had
dogged his steps for the past few
years.]���Rossland Miner.

Worry is the twin sister of nervousness. Neither should enter
into the daily life of any one. God
in His all-wise providence, put the
head of a human being on top, that
all beneath it might be subservient
to it. There is something wrong
above the eyes in the region of the
will power, when one becomes
nervous in the sense of excitability.
"Know thyself" is good; control
thyself is better. Worry and excitement never aided any one. Any
fool can get along when everything
is all right, but it takes a wise man,
a level headed man,, to get along
and not worry nor become nervous
when everything is all wrong.���

who caught the largest fish, and

It is said of Horace Greely that
he once met with great loss on his
farm because of an early season
and his refusal to harvest his crop
till the time designated in his
book had arrived. And it is said
that Henry Ward Beecher on his
ranch thought to save the expense
of drying his fruit hy planting
dried apples. This week we have
noticed Mr. G. K. Stocker, at
Laurel Ridge, actively engaged in
agricultural pursuit. We do not
say he iB planting dried apples,
but when it comes to his tilling the
soil there might be some question
as to what it will bring forth. However, Borne day in the not distant
future Laurel Ridge will doubtless
be surrounded with beautiful shade

at one time employed on the development works here, has been

him that the patient should be
taken to the hospital where he
could be properly cared for. The
doctor came down, and lanced
Piano's leg and would have taken
him to the hospital but he preferred to remain here, the physican
giving it as his opinion that the
patient would now rapidly recover.

The Bossburg Journal says there
hits been a good market for potatoes
thi- week, and the ranchers in that
vicinity had a chance to dispose
of their surplus tubers. The demand came from Boundary district
campc Potatoes will probably be
more easily obtained next year at
this time, as several parties in this
section have turned their attention
to farming, and will put in a crop
of spuds.
It is stated that the Mine-owners'
Association is preparing to take a
hand in the coming election, and
is forming for a united political
movement. Its members will give
a vigorous support to the political
party which gives a positive undertaking, in the event of success at
the polls, to repeal the eight-hour
law, or modify its so-called obnoxious clauses.
The representatives of the mines
in the Nelson and Ymir districts,
who have been paying $3 to miners
and deducting in some cases 75
cents and in others $1 per day for
board, have instructed their superintendents that after March 31st
they will pay a uniform wage of
$3 25 to miners, deducting $1 for
board. The change will practically mean a uniform rate of wages
for miners employed in the mines
in EaBt Kootenay, Slocan, Nelson

Wm. Hall, a Grand Forks photographer has erected a tent at the
north end of the townsite building
and is prepared to accommodate
all who may desire to have their
"profiles tuck." The pictures he
made of the dam, waterfalls,
bridges, etc., demonstrate his high
accomplishment in the art of portraiture.
Quite a number of persons are
actively searching out farming
lands surrounding Cascade with
the view of pre-empting the same.
The constant and increasing demand here for farm products and
their scarcity keeps prices for such
produce well up.

Everybody is delighted with tlie

Monday's east hound passenger
train brought the paymaster and
the grip with the checks which
caused a bright twinkle in tiie
eyes of the employes of the road in
this section.    It was pay-day.
Two of Cascade's citizens were
on Shamrock mountain Sunday
last. They went up by way of the
government trail into Baker valley,
from Sutherland siding. They say
that with a little work at different
points the trail could be made a
good wagon road. However, the
parties were disappointed, considering the name of the mountain���
Shamrock���at finding no Irishmen
anywhere on the route.
The final payment on the $70,-
000 bond on the Snowshoe mining
property in Greenwood camp, of
$37,800 has been made The
.Snowshoe lies northeast of the
Gold Drop in Greenwood camp,
and is nearby to the Rawhide and
Monarch. It is developed to a
depth of 300 feet by shaft with
levels at 70, 120 and 200 feet respectively, with considerable cross-
cuting and drifting.
Mr. Frank Hutchinson returned
Monday from Rossland, where he
had been the past two months, or
.-more. The Rossland Miner of
April 3rd, stated that Mr. Hutchinson had the day previous bonded
400,000 shares of stock in the Belcher Mining Company to Hon.
Smith Curtis. The Belcher Mining
company is operating the Elmore.
The capital stock of the company
consists of 1,500,000 shares, and of
these Mr. Curtis already owned
-')00,000,and the additional 400,000
which he has secured will give him
control. Considerable work has
been done on the property. It has
a strong vein of gold-copper ore
upon it.
The quarentine at Chesaw and
Meyers creek has been raised, there
never having been a case of smallpox in either of the camps. And
Greenwood has abandoned the
silly practice of holding up the incoming passenger trains in order to
scratch the arms of the passengers
at a dollar a head. It is hard to
understand what effect the one
dollar scratch on the arm had on
the germs supposed to he traveling
over the country secreted in baggage and wearing apparel. We
can easily grasp the idea of
profit to the medico and his little
scraper, but the tomfoolery practiced to secure it is what excites our

The Wm. Hamilton
Phoenix' Patriotic Concert, the
Pioneer asserts, was a grand success.
"Miners' Union hall, where the
concert was held, was packed and
many were standing. The new
stage, curtains and electric footlights were used for the first time,
and everything went off smoothly.
John Riordnn, secretary of the
union, had looked after the details
and apple pie order was the rule."
The proceeds netted over $150.
Sam Handy has been suffering
from an injured limb this week.
While taking some barrels loaded
with bottled beer from his dray a
few days since, one of the barrels
fell on his left leg and foot, causing
severe bruises. Dr. Schaich was
absent at the time, and before
medical aid could be obtained,
the leg was badly swollen and inflamed. For a time blood poison
was feared.
L. A. Hamilton, who has fqr a
long time held tlie position of C.
P. R. Land Commissioner, with
headquarters at Winnipeg, Man.,
has tendered his resignation, and
will, doubtless, be succeeded by Mr.
Griffen, his former assistant.
By taking the Cascade-Bossburg
stage, it only takes one day to go to
Agent Tebo Moves Into the New Depot
Every day upon the arrival of
the passenger traiiiB here quite a
bustling scene iB presented at the
railway station. There is considerable travel over the road, and
many passengers get off and on the
trains, while quite an army of
spectators gather to see and hear
the traveling public. Mr. F. E.
Tebo this week has been moving
into the new depot building, which
seems to be amply capacious and
convenient for all requirements at
present, and no doubt the affable
and accommodating agent fully
enjoyB and appreciates the improved conditions. The former little
depot building will be retained for
the use of Roadmaster Johnston.

The Liberals of Cascade met
Tuesday and organized as the
"Cascade Liberal Association."
Mr. D. D. Ferguson was elected
president, R. E. Darrow and A. H.
Thompson vice-presidents, and Mr.
Donald Dunbar, secretary.
On motion, Hon. Smith Curtis
was chosen as delegate to represent
the Liberals of this vicinity at the
Liberal convention held at Vancouver last Thursday. It was
demonstrated by resolution that
the association was unanimously
in favor of conducting the coming
campaign on party lines.
