THE CASCADE RECORD
Published in the Interests of the Boundary and Christina Lake   Mining Districts
Vol. II.
CASCADE,  B. C, MARCH 17, 1900.
No. 19.
PROSPEROUS GLADSTONE
Many Promising Properties Persistently
Developed.
CITIZENS CONFIDENT OF GREAT FUTURE
Located oa the Mineral Belt Its Rich Tributary Mines Slowly but Surely Coming
to the Front.
G.T. Curtis, Gladstone's general
merchant, was down from that
.prosperous camp yesterday and
registered at the Hotel Cascade.
Mr. Curtis says work in the mines
around Gladstone is steadily progressing. The tunnel in the John
Bull is now in 200 feet, the last contract on it having been completed
last Saturday. The indications
are more positive and promising
than ever. The work of crosscuting
will now be begun. Mr. Curtis is
enthusiastically hopeful, even positive of a prosperous future for
Gladstone. It is located in the
mineral belt, and nowhere in the
Boundary do the mineral veins
assay higher, or show up in larger
proportions.
Work to Commence on the Onix.
It is expected operations will be
begun about the first of April on
the Onix mine on Deep creek within
sight of Cascade. This mine is
owned by Spokane capitalists, who
also own the mine at Chewelah,
Wash., by the same name. We are
informed that it is the intention of
tbe owners to do a large amount of
development work on this mine
this spring and coming summer.
In this connection it may be said
that assessment work will be done
on a large number of mining claims
in this vicinity during the coming
summer months, and no one will
be surprised if it should happen
that several good mines be the result.
though the boys would be well rewarded for their work this year.
The British Columbia Copper
company who are the owners of
the Mother Lode Mine, in Dead-
wood camp, Greenwood, and the
development of whose property has
been so grout that it required the
installation of a larger plant for
handling their immense ore bodies
have just signed a contract in New
York with the James Cooper Manufacturing company, of Montreal,
for a complete Ingersoll-Sergeant
equipment, consisting of a Cross
compound steam, compound air,
Corliss air compressor. This is the
largest plant, that has yet come into
the Boundary country, and in
point of size is second to none now
in operation in Canada. A great
deal of interest has been centered
in the placing of this order owing to
the keen competition of a large
number of Canadian and American
engineering firms.
TOWN AND BOUNDARY NOTES.
Working Claims on Cattle Mountain.
A few days since Ernest Gribi,
brother of Fred. Gribi, manager of
the Cascade Meat maket, began
work on their claim, the Mascot,
across the river and near the railway track. Mr. Gribi has had encouraging assays from this property
which he worked last year, and
proposes now to keep steadily at it
for the season, and give it a
thorough prospecting. It is near
the Castle creek water tank.
Frank Devon is also working on
his property not far from the Mascot, and last Saturday struck some
fine  copper   ore.    It   appears   as
Sam Handy informs The Record
that he will start his draying business again
Mrs. Julius Black, accompanied
by her children went to Eholt last
Saturday, where Mr. Black is in
business.
C. E. Roberts is the genial mixologist behind the bar at Black's
hotel now conducted by A. Ravine
&Co.
A force of 50 men are employed
on the C. P. R. near Gladstone,
where the slide occured this week,
and it is said that the men will be
required at that point for some
time to come.
Ing Yee, one of Cascade's Chinese
laundrynien, attempted to 20 to
Greenwood Thursday but was
turned back because he had not
conformed with the vaccination
regulations.
Greenwood has seized the bull
by the horns. No one passing
through Grand Forks can enter
that town without a clean health
bill and a scab on his arm. Even
the incoming trains are flagged and
searched.
Health Oflicer Widdicombe desires The Record to call the attention of its local readers to the fact
that there are a number of yards
and other places in Cascade not in
the best sanitary condition, and
that the law makes it his duty to
remedy these wrongs. If owners
do not comply with his request to
renovate, it will be done by others
at   their  expense.   Oflicer Widdi
combe is doing all he can to protect and improve the healthful conditions of this community, and our
citizens should render him every
assistance possible.
A sneak thief entered the private
appartments of Mr. and Mrs. M. J.
Quinlivan, at the Cosmopolitan
hotel, last Wednesday morning,
while they were below in the dining
room taking breakfast, and stole a
valuable gold watch and chain, belonging to Mrs. Quinlivan. The
thief has not yet been apprehended.
Presbyterian Church Social.
The semi monthly Presbyterian
church social will be held next
Thursday evening in the Townsite
building. Following is the programme to begin at 8 o'clock sharp:
Organ Solo, Miss Darrow; Recitation, Mr. Geo. Ritchie; Song, Mr.
G. K. Stocker; Violin Solo, Mrs.
M. J. Quinlivan; Recitation, Mr.
Dalgleish; Duett, Mrs. Quinlivan
and Mr. Stocker; Heading, John
Simpson; Song, Mrs. Quinlivan;
Hymn, "Nearer my God to Thee,"
Audience.
After the programme charades,
games, etc., will be enjoyed. He-
fresh men ts will be served at 10
o'clock.
A Bluenose Gains the V. C.
Osburne Matheson, one of the
first Canadian contingent, has won
distinction. He enlisted from New
Castle, New Brunswick. Was
wounded at Paardeberg. Later on
came the news that Matheson was
the first man into Cronje's laager in
the memorable Paardeberg fight,
and that his conspicuous bravery
had caused him to be recommended for the Victoria Cross, an honor
which, if he survives the campaign,
he seems shure to obtain. So far
as is known Mr. Matheson has
achieved the distinction of being
the first of the Canadian volunteers
to be selected for that honor so
coveted by all soldiers.
Politics Beginning to Slule.
In many of the larger places in
the province the voters are showing
an anxiety to know where they are
at. So it is with aspirants for official places. Daily conventions
are being held by Conservatives,
Liberal-Conservatives and Liberals.
The leaders on all sides are drilling
their forces to go into the coming
campaign with vim.
Premier Martin has issued a 22-
plank platform, the greater part of
which is very good timber. Too
many voters, however, will be apt
to think that the only use he will
make of it will be the same as that
of the platform of a railway car, to
get in on.
BL0EMF0NTE1N SUCCUMBS
General French Enters the Free State
Capital.
THE WHITE FLAG HOISTED TUESDAY
Lord Roberts has HU Headquarters at the
Late Residence of President Steyn, who
had Fled to Safer Quarters.
The British forces in South Africa
are marching from victory to victory, and tbe Boer forces are eveiy-
where demoralized. It is believed
that the Boer cause is in a state of
collapse. Presidents Kruger and
Steyn have sued for peace aud asked for terms, invoking the mediatorial assistance of President McKinley, but the British authorities will
not pay heed to their overtures till
the Boer warriors lay down their
arms.
A dispatch to the Daily Chronicle
from Bloemfontein dated Tuesday
evening March 13th says: "Bloemfontein surrended at 10 o'clock today. It was occupied at noon.
President Steyn, with a majority of
the fighting burghers, has fled
northward.
General French was within five
miles of the place on Monday afternoon. He sent summons into the
town threatening to bombard unless it was surrended by 4 o'clock
on Tuesday morning. A white flag
was hoisted on Tuesday morning
and a deputation of the town council with Mayor Kellner came out to
Lord Roberts at Spier Kop, five
miles south of the town, making a
formal surrender of the place.
Lord Roberts made a state entry
at noon. He received a tremendous ovation. After v.siting the
public buildings he went to the
ofiicial residence of the president
followed by a cheering crowd, who
waved a British flag and sang the
British national songs. They were
in a condition of frenzied excitement.
On the Monday afternoon previous to the surrender there was a
little sniping and shelling, but the
enemy retired.
Lord Roberts has his headquarters at the president's house and
there are many of the wounded in
the building. The railway is not
injured.
The Canadian Patriotic Fund
has reached $180,000 and is still
climbing.

Impervious Joe Martin, with a
sered conscience, steeled heart and
a generally petrified condition, goes
on ruling as a king or despot, and
as a piece of inanimate machinery
driven by an extraneous force, regardless of the nice things the press
is saying about him. He is wholly
oblivious of the murmurings of the
wild, wild waves down by the sea.
One thing is certain. Jot's enemies can never despoil him of the
honor of having been at one time
the "first" man of British Columbia. He may kick over the lamp
and set fire to the parliament buildings before he is rounded up, but
he has achieved honor, rather no-
tority, that will cover a multitude
of sins when he has completed his
spectacular march over the veldt
and copjes between the "womb of
time  and  the  tomb  of eternity."
So long as the attempt to conduct the politics of the province on
non-partisan lines is followed, just
so long will the political field be
found overflowing with self-constituted leaders, who will split the
voters into innumerable factions
and rally them around minor and
unimportant theories. All governments must have great fundimental
principles of national character.
To build up a force behind these
principles the foundations must be
laid at the beginning in local education. Tlie component parts of
the national party are scattered
throughout the length and breadth
of the land. To unify and crystal-
ize these local units they must be
educated along the lines of national
political action. Otherwise there
will exist a hurly-burly condition
such as we have witnessed at Victoria the past three months.
Notwithstanding the fact that
dishonest and unreliable persons
secure government positions, filch
from the public treasury and disburse the people's money with recklessness, yet governments must be
sustained. Every citizen entitled
to a hand in the government of the
country in which he lives, owes it
to himself, his family, his fellow-
beings to prepare to exercise that
function with intelligence and persistency. The ballot is a sovereign
right which every man may enjoy,
and to which great responsibility
attaches.   Every man so entitled
should be prepared to vote on all
questions of government policy submitted to the people. To be so
prepared it is necessary that hiB
name should appear on the voters'
list, Is your name there, reader ?
it' not, why not ? Mr. Angus Cameron and Geo. C. Rose have the
necessiiry blanks and will help you
to get on the list.
The Le Roi, War Eagle and Centre Star mines, which for a time
have been completely shutdown for
machinery nnd repairs are now
ready to resume operations. They
decided to use the contract system
in the future, to pay by the quantity of work done instead of hy the
day. The men were informed of
the new arrangement. Contracts
will be let from day to day until
the mines are in full operation,
The miners have so far refused to
take contracts, pending consideration of the matter in meeting.
If it were not so serious, the division of political parties it. the
province would be very comical.
We have the Turner faction and
the Eberts faction and the
Helmcken faction of the Turner
party. We have the Wilson Conservatives and the Tupper Conservatives. We have the Martin
Liberals and the Davis Liberals,
and the Brown Liberals. There
are also other splits to numerous
to mention.���Greenwood Times.

The approaching completion of
the great Siberian railway suggests
to some enthusiasts the possibility
of an all-rail route on this continent, connecting with the Russian
trans-Asiatic line by the large
transfer ferries across Bering Sea.
That would make it possible to
travel by rail from Jacksonville,
Florida, to Paris or Lisbon���seven-

"The man who complains the moBt
of the preacher pays the preacher
the least; the man who runs down
his town does the least to build it

town is no good and that it is dead.
But he is mistaken���he iB the

himself because Joe Martin had

Mining not a Lottery.
Gold mining, when carried on an
a business, is nothing more nor less
than the application of business intelligence, skill and experience, together with requsite capital, t" conditions of earth and rock favorable
to the production of the precious
metals. The history of every mining camp is that mines are made
rather than found. The location
of a promising claim, the publication of extravagant assay? from
surface diggings, do not make a
mine, nor yield returns to investirs.
In every mining ciimp are found
mines, that frequently are the best
and mopt valuable there, whir.h at
some stage in their history were
operated by novices, not alone in
intelligent mining, but also in practical business affairs. They cculd
find mrface indications, lociite the
vein and make the 1 eginning of a
mine, but they failed in the crucial
lest of properly and judiciously expending their capital. After struggling along the property has passed into the hands of practical business men, who have, under careful
management, made a profitable
mine where the novice had failed
entirely. The requisites of successful mining are not alone in possessing the veins containing the
precious   metals,   hut   also    the
knowledge and skill of how lo hest
develop the property for the economical working of it as a legitimate
business proposition. The successful management of a mine requires
the business qualifications as are
necessary lo conduct a prosperous
manufactoring enterprise or mercantile business, and no other business can offer such inducements to
investors as gold mining when properly conducted, and surely no mercantile business, no manufacturing
enterprise offers such an attractive
field for large, steady dividends.
The tariff makes no change in its
steady, increasing profits. Political parties may come and go,
but the price of gold remains the
same, while science and improved
machinery constantly reduce cost of
its production.
The old idea that mining is a
lottery, aud a matter of chance, has
been exploded the past few years,
and is now regarded by sensible
people as a safe legitimate and profitable investment, when care and
good management are applied to it
as in other lines of business.���

THE   CASCADE   RECORD
Msroli IT, 1*
IN AND AROUND CASCADE
"St. Patrick's day in the morning."
Mrs. B. Wilcox, of Cascade is
spending a few weeks in Spokane,
visiting relatives.
Dr. Schaich returned from a trip
to Spokane last Monday, having
been absent several days.
If a stray cobbler should happen
to come this way, he might find  it
to his advantage to open a shop
here.
Dr. Jakes, of Greenwood, Deputy
Health Officer for the Boundary
district, was in Cascade last Saturday. While here he vaccinated
14 school children and eight or ten
adults.
John Earle, proprietor of the
Cascade sawmill, has on hand a
large supply of well-seasoned lumber of all kinds, and parties in
quest of such material will do well
to interview Mr. Earle, or send in
their order by mail.
The heaving effects of the frost
as it is drawn from the ground by
the warm sun and Chinook winds
has caused a good deal of trouble
and expense to the railways. On
the Columbia & Western there
have been numerous slides, and
nearly every day the trains are delayed from one to ten hours.
Rev. W. A. Alexander of Columbia will occupy the pulpit in the
Presbyterian church here to-morrow. It is hoped there will be a
good attendance at the morning
service, it being the only one to be
held during the day, as Mr. Alexander will be obliged to return to
his own church in the evening Sabbath school will bo held as usual
immediately after the morning
service.
A few evenings ago two well-
known citizens indulged in a competition in the matter of telling
"punkin" stories. The "punkins"
seen by these gentlemen in their
time were considerably ahead of
anything mentioned in the Arabian
Nights, and fully equal to the famous beanstalk climbed by Jack.
The citizens of Cascade should send
for the seeds of some of these
"punkins," as, when full-grown,
they could be hollowed out and
used for dwelling-houses. A "pun*
kin" shell would make better walling
���for a house than persimmons.
A Serious Und Slide at Sandon.
Sandon experienceed a disastrous
land slide last Sunday. Wm. McLeod was killed, and Mrs. H.
Nnsh and Wm. Lovett were seriously injured, and Rev. J. A. Ferguson
escaped from a building that was
crushed into kindling wood. Six
residences were wrecked
"Don't keep tellin* po' folks how
sorry you is you can't help 'em,"
said Uncle Eben. "Dey has too
much trouble of deir own to stop
'an sympathize wid you."
Spring Cleulnf Time is on.
Now that warmer weather is approaching the sanitary conditions
of the town should be given attention by our citizens. All unsightly and objectionable refuse matter
subject to decay and thereby endanger health should be removed
from back yards and other places
where their presence is offensive.
It is noted that several citizens
have already begun this commendable work.
Of! for San Francisco.
Mr. Gerald Upton, who came out
from London, Eng., some fifteen
months since, and who haB been
during that time in the employ of
the B. C. Mercantile & Mining
syndicate of Cascade, is arranging
to take a trip to tho coast cities
from Vancouver to San Francisco.
Having influential friends in the
latter city, he will probably secure
a good position or enter business in
the metropolis of California. Mr.
Upton has many friends here who
with the Record wish him success
wherever he may go. He is a bright,
capable young man, and with due
effort will undoubtedly attain to a
place of prominence in the business
world.     	
Our Local "Bores" Active.
Cascade is greatly interested in
the "bore" war that is going on up
the river a little ways Olaf Olsen
now has an army of 50 men boring
away in the 400-foot tunnel of the
water works, and expects to continue the attack for the next six
months before daylight will be
visible through the big "bore."
Meanwhile contractor Quinlivan is
executing a flank movement with a
larger army throwing open a big
cut, and reinforcements are arriving
daily. During this long struggle
with huge masses of dirt and rock
Cascade is getting the benefit of the
big payroll, and is entitled to a
place among the chief industrial
cities of the Boundary.
NOTE AND COMMENT.
As we see it, to draw party lines
means adherence to principles instead of political leaders. It ought
to be an easy matter for one to decide which is the safer of the two
courses.
F. E. Simpson of the Cranbrook
Herald, with other parties���Wm.
Doble and Geo. Shier, will go to
Cape Nome this summer with a
stock of groceries, on speculation
bent.
Complaint is made that if the
elections are delayed till June, the
house cannot meet till Sept. 1st.
As the general appropriations expire on the 30th of June, there will
be no milk in the public udder for
the pap suckers during two months.
How saddening it is to contemplate
such a fate for a horde of innocent

Who is there prepared to say
that if the Cotton-Semlin government had been established on party
lines it would have passed out of
existence amid the blaze of distressing ignominy which inveloped it in
its last days ?
Melbourne, Australia, a city with
half a million population and
rapidly growing, has taken an advanced stand for municipal ownership. She owns absolutely her gas
works, and laBt year made a profit
of over $1,500,000. The street railway system will soon revert to her
when she will transport passengers
a distance of three to five miles for
one cent. Long ago she adopted
the eight-hour law for all city employes. She provides for the free
transportation of school children,
She furnishes free employment exchanges and one of the finest school
systems in the world. Next to
Paris it is the equal of any. The
municipality gives encouragement
to trades unions. The city owns
the docks and conducts the steam
ferries. She is making tremendous
strides in many improvements and
it is freely predicted that from now
on she will advance much more
rapidly in municipal ownership
than in the past.
Dr. Lelsie E. Keeley, of gold cure
fame, died suddenly in Los Angeles,
Cal., a few days ago. People will
always be divided on the opinion
as to the worth of the gold cure,
but it made a fortune of over two
million dollars for its discoverer
just the same.

BRITISH COLUMBIA
MACKENZIE & MANN'S RAILROAD.
Will Run Frem Edmonton Through Northern
British Columbia
It is announced from Montreal
that Mackenzie & Mann have completed their financial arrangement
and that a port in British Columbia
will be the terminus of another
transcontinental railway much
sooner than was generally expected.
The line will be called the Edmonton, Yukon & Pacific railway, and
will run from South Edmonton in
a northwesterly direction through
the Yellowhead pass, through
British Columbia, and terminate on
the Pacific ocean at Port Simpson.
The new arrangements look to the
completion of a great portion of the
road the coming season.
The country around Edmonton
is well known to be extremely valuable, while the section of British
Columbia that is to be opened up is
not unlikely to prove as rich in resources of every kind as the portions of the province now accessible
to prospectors and agriculturalists.
The connection of the new road
with sections of line already constructed  and portions yet to   be
built will eventually make the
railroad a transcontinental one.���
Victoria Times.
The March number of the Canadian Magazine will be a special
military number with colored military cover, the design of which
shows the Canadian Mounted Rifles
parading on a Canadian street.
The organization of the second contingent and the embarkation will
be described by two writers and
each of the articles will be illustrated with a number of photographs
which have been taken specially for
this purpose. J. Castell Hopkins
writes the opening article in which
he gives the history of British Policy in South Africa during the
present century. Malcolm Ross, a
member of the artillery brigade in
the second contingent, has an excellent article entitled "Types of
Artillery." C. A. Matthews writes
a short biographical sketch of the
Minister of Militia. The publishers
announce that this will be the
finest number of the Canadian
Magazine they have ever turned
out.
