the Vlctlmi���Funeral Here Today-
Fifty Workmen to Attend.
.Last night James Pease, a foreman under Olaf Olson, and J. Gilbert met death at the long tunnel
through Bull -Dog mountain, near
Brooklyn. It is supposed that they
went into the tunnel too soon after
a round of shots had been fired, and
were overcome by gases. Dr. G. C.
Gordon the contractors' physician,
who is stationed at the tunnel, did
everything possible to resuscitate
the men, but without avail,;
A special train, bearing the remains of the dead men, left the
tunnel at 10 a m. today for Cascade. That Pease and Gilbert were
esteemed by their fellow workmen
is shown hy the fact that 50 of them
are on the train and will attend the

Forks, has communicated the facts
to the coroner, and will be here for

Throughout all mining districts
there is a desire, to a greater or
less extent, in securing crown
grants, to get title also tn the surface rights of mineral claims, the
owner of a crown granted claim being entitled to the first opportunity
to purchase the surface rights.
But in Yale district, for some time
past, there has been a deal of trouble in securing crown grants to
these surface rights. Possibly this
has not been an unmixed evil, as
it tended to hold down the propensity for townsite exploiting to
some extent. Be that as it may, it
was not justice to the undisputed
owners of claims.
It appears that the land grant
to the Columbia & Western railway company, gave the right to
select 20,000 acres per mile between
Keremeos and Robson, but this
last winter the railway elected to
'take a cash subsidy instead. This
would appear to simplify the position of the government, yet' the
railway still had the right to choose
-lands for the mileage between Rossland and Robson, previously constructed.
However, the matter was brought
before the lands and works department, when it was finally agreed
that crown grants to surface rights
should be issued for all mineral
claims located prior to the setting
aside of the reserve.   It was also
agreed, in the cases of claims located subsequent to the reserve, that
the railway company had no
vested rights until their selection
of lands had actually been made,
and consequently owners of claims
were entitled to purchase surface
rights at $5 per acre.
This was a most important question, and the government did well
in adopting this sensible and business like view of it, when properly
brought to its attention. Otherwise much confusion must have
'accruing from such an exhibit, if a
represenlative showing is gathered.
This year the mineral, department
of the exposition will be one of its
chief and mo.-t conspicuous features, the exhibit being placed at
the very doors of the building.
Many thousands of visitors, including capitalists from all parts,
will carefully inspect the mineral
specimens. Good cannot fail to
result from cuch an exhibit, and
the cost of getting it together is
not large. In additi.n., the railways have agreed to transport it
While the time iB now short, it
is yet possible to get a good lot of
samples together. Mr. George K.
Stocker, who has been appointed
to take charge of it, has labels
ready for ticketing samples. He
will gladly co-operatu with mining
men in the matter and assist in
every possible way. Let us gather
samples from the best properties in
the Christina lake camps and show
the world what we have in a mineral way. It will be well worth
A few weeks ago the Record
called attention to the fact that
mining men hereabouts should get
together and send an exhibit of our
ores to the Spokane Industrial Exposition. It should not he necessary to enumerate the advantages
Jno. D. Rockefeller's wealth is
increasing at the rate of $34.50 a
minute. Which is proof positive
that he was never in the newspaper business.
The granting of the powers of a
gold commissioner on the mining
recorder, Mr. McMynn, of Midway,
will save mining men, having such
business, many a long and weary
trip to Fairview.
Hon. Rufus Pope, who recently
visited Cascade and the Boundarv,
s/   *
says that Christina claims are favorably known in Ottawa, and other
eastern cities. As time goes on,
they will become even more favorably known.
Scavengers in the English language are not plenty in journalism,
but the individual who recently
resurrected that tattered fag end of
an apology for a semi-moribund
weekly at Columbia, appears to fill
the description and rejoicg'in it.   .
Referring to some verses that
have lately been going the rounds
of the press, the New Denver Ledge
observes that "The Man with the
Hoe" is no doubt all right, but
we think The Mao with ihe Dough
would be more popular with the
majority of the dwellers on this
American continent.
In many a camp it is realized
that nothing is certain but uncertainty. It is universally admitted
hy competent judges that this -element is an infinitesimally small
one in the various Boundary
camps. Some may be richer than
others, yet it is believed that all
will turn out to be veritable treasure boxes. Is there another section of which this can be said?
It would be difficult indeed to
find a better place to invest 35
cents than in a' copy of the Spokest
man-Review's mining book, just
out, entitled, "A Million Dollar
Check." Magnificiently printed,
profusely illustrated and ably
edited, it is a genuine pleasure for
any mining man to peruse it.
Rossland and Boundary mines
form a large part of its   contents.
The Nelson Tribune is just, a
trifle too much up to date. Last
week it announced the sale of the
Cascade water power, when such
was not the fact. In last Wednesday's issue it stated that "Regular
train? are now running on the
Boundary road," another misstatement of fact. In both instances it
could have learned the exact status
right in Nelson. It is to be hoped
the balance of the Tribune's news
is of a more reliable character.
The whole civilized world, outside of France, believes that the
sentencing of Captain Dreyfus to
ten years, on a charge of delivering military secrets to a foreign
power, is a.travesty on justice. It
would appear that the French generals are saving themselves at the
expense of Dreyfus. The unusual
interest taken is world wideband
the indignation is so widespread
that it is likely to react on the
Paris exposition of next year, for
which such extensive preparations
have been made.
Passengers From the South Now Have Two
i . . .    ���       .
Considerable interest has been
expressed as to whether, for passengers coming from the south, it
-would be cheaper to come into the
Boundary via Rossland and the
new railway line, or continue over
the old stage route from Bossburg.
Here are the figures to get to Cascade by each route from Bossburg:
Bossburg to Rossland  S2.25
Over night In Rossland, about.         ..... S.00
Rosslnnd to Cascade, 82 miles, at 5 cents
per mile  4.60
By stage the fare is $4.00 from
Bossburg to Cascade, making a difference of at least $4.85 in favor of
the stage route.
In travelling from the Boundary
to Rossland it would cost by stage
$4 00 to Bossburg, and thence $2.25
by rail to It��ssland.making a total
of $6.25. By C. P. R., all rail, the
fare, according to the estimates, is
The passenger schedule on the
new railway line has not been
madp public yet, and consequently
these figures are not exact, hut it
is not thought there will be much
difference, unless it is in a reduction of stage fares.

Road Superintendent Forresthas
lieen spending the email amount of
money allowed him, to the beat possible advantage on our highways.
He has now five men at work, and
this week has been making a short
cut on the road to the lake. He
will shortly begin the construction
of the Baker creek trail, which will
he a much needed improvement.
The constant and heavy rains this
summer have made it doubly difficult to keep roads in repair, and
consequently rendered it doubly
necessary. The amount, $950,
however, is too small by far, to begin to cover the necessities.   .    ,
The following communication
has been received from a correspondent:
Greenwood,B.C., Sept. 18,1899.
Editot Cascade Record:
Dear Sir:���I notice in a stray
copy of the so-called Columbia
Review, that the editor, whom I
have the pleasure of knowing, refers to your1 paper as a rag which
���would require an imbecile to understand. I think, Mr. Editor, it
would require an extemely brilliant man to fathom the Review,
and I also think that if Columbia
is to be judged by its "rag," it
must be on its lant legs. The best
thing that Columbia can do is to
import one of the Record's office
boys and send the present, would-
he scribe to school. Apparently
he does not know any more about
the Transvaal than he does about
English grammer.
Yours,        Coon.
In connection with the above
letter, the Record would state that
it does not believe Columbia is generally judged by its journalistic
exponent. The average man of
ordinary intelligence would not
for a moment think of such a
thing. It is too good a town and
has too many bright people in it to
he brought down to such a level.
It has been thought hy some
persons that when the new railway
ntarted regular trains, it would be
all pff with the stage business be
twefcn Bossburg and Cascade, hut
a,reference to an article on another
page on this subject, will show
that, for travellers from the south
the expense is so much greater by
the new all-rail route, that the
stages have much more than a
fighting show yet If they would
reduce the fare from 14 tn $8 or
$2.50 hetween Cascade and Bossburg, they will have a fine chance
to corrall a big share of the passenger business. If not, it will
encourage passengers to use the
all-rail route.
Hon. F. Carter-Cotton, Minister
of Finance, has been in Rossland
and Nelson this week, looking after
ftroyincial matters. He says the
egislature Will meet on January
4th, and that he has no doubt of
having the confidence of the people
when that occurs. He does not
seem to he worried hy the figuring
of the opposition that the government is now in ihe minority.

Cascade Nan Returns Front the Promising District
Is About 45 Mllei From Cascade���Ore Is
Chiefly Quarti���Many Promising Locations.
J. P. Graber returned last Sunday from a trip to the new and
.promising Franklin camp, located
35 miles up the east fork, which
branches off from the north fork of
Kettle river 35 mile's up. Mr
Graber and J. K. Kelly, also of
Cascade, went by way of Christina
lake,taking a boat to the head.
Thence they followed a trapper's
trail up Hardy creek and over to
Franklin camp for a distance of
about 25 miles This would make
the approximate distance of the
new camp about 45 miles from
Cascade, via the lake route. ' Mr.
Graber occupied three days in returning, leaving Kelly to do some
further prospecting.
The camp gets its name from the
original location, the Franklin,
which has been restaked, and
which is1 now being worked by the
father1 of the camp, Frank McFar-
land.    A   number  of   promising
locations have been made this year.
Mr. Graber making one called the
Swamp Angel. He Kays the ledges
in the district are large and in
some cases the walls have not
yet been found, in one case a 20-
foot crosscut having been made
without finding both walls.
The ore is of a quarts! character,
and is without the hard iron cap
ibat is so prevalent in many
camps. Assays run from $5 tn $12
in gold and copper, wiih some eale-
ha. Mr. Graber expects to return
at ���nme future date, as he believes
there is a bright future for the
camp. Already a number of prnrn-
inent men in the mining world
have been in there sizing things
np, and speak well of the outlook.
Beat Frank Aiprey Five Minutes In Six
The boat race on the lake last
Sunday created considerable interest. It was between Frank Asprey
and Charles Sandner, the. former
bieng given 100 feet start. The
course was from the foot of the
lake to English Point, a straight
course of about six miles. Ordinary row boats were used, such a*
are found on the lake.
The signal was given by W. H.
Bell, and both started off, together.
Bandner's stroke was, quick, while
Asprey's was sloW and even. Before a mile had been traversed it
was evident that Sandner hud
much the best of it. He easily
caught up with and passed his opponent, and came in far ahead,
taking it easy. His time was 52
minutes, Asprey's being 57 minutes. Probably $150 changed
hands on the result. ���    ;
Mr. Asprey's friends assert tbat
for a few days past his left arm
has been subjected to cramps, and
he was therefore not in condition.
Mr. Sandner had the lighter boat,
but is ready for another race at
anv time.
The Steamer Mytle B. accompanied the racers and at English
Point quite a large number were
found, taking advantage of the
beautiful weather and the lake al
the same time. A number of horse-
rwen and special rigs went up during the day.
Mr. Sandner is a good deal of an
aquatic sport. At the World's
Fair at Chicago he took first prize
for being the best swimmer and
staying under water the longest.
LeRoi Mine  Will Have Deepest Shalt In
The LeRoi mine is about to enter an era of the, most extensive
development work in its history.
The plant is to be largely increased* and a 2,500-foot shaft started.
The management of the LeRoi has
notified the representatives of the
various machinery manufacturers
that tenders will be received forthwith for a complete new pow*r
plant, with,capacity for 60 drills,
to be installed as soon as possible.
This move on the part of the LeRoi
people means that the development
of the mine along the lines proposed by Superintendent Carlyle
and accepted by the directors will
begin without much delay. The
new plan provides for a vertical
shaft 2,500 feet deep. This shaft,
which will cut the main vein at n
depth of about. 1,000 feet, will be
the largest and deepest shaft in
Canada. The present, air compressor on the mine provides air
for 40 drills. It will be seen that,
with the installation of the new
plant, a large increase in the working force of the mine will be rendered necessary, and ���a, considerable increase in the output of ore is
to be looked for.
