THE CASCADE RECORD
Vox,. I,
CASCADE, B. C, FEBRUARY 4, 1899.
No. 13.
Townsite Company Has Given Orders
For Several,
TO BE ERECTED WITHOUT DELAY
finat Demand for Cottages Causes the
Townsite Owners to Inaugurate Another
Step in the Upbuilding of Cascade.
Cascade is destined to be a city
of homes, as well as a hive of industry. Already operations have
commenced here upon several
large undertakings, the widespread
and beneficial influence of which
will be felt throughout the entire
district. Heretofore some have
come only for a time, and have
consequently been birds of passage,
not caring much where or how
they lived. But lately, as it has
become more and more evident to
the layman, not permitted to peer
behind the scenes, that certain influences were crystallizing which
would mean the upbuilding here
of a large, prosperous and permanent community, there has been a
decided demand for homes.
To partially supply this increasing demand, the townsite company
have decided to liegin the erection
at once of a number of cottages,
and orders have already been
given for the lumber for the first of
these. The work will be done hy
D. D. Ferguson, the pioneer contractor of Cascade. As soon as the
weather moderates, the workmen
will start in.
These cottages will be located on
the fine stretch of ground east of
the Record building. They will
have four rooms, and will be made
comfortable, being painted inside
and out. It has always been the
policy of the townsite company to
put up ?ood, servicable buildings,
which will be adhered to in this
case. There is no doubt but that
the cottages will be rented and
occupied as soon as completed, if
not before.
riASQUERADE BALL
The First of the Kind Ever Held In
.Cascade's first masquerade hall
was held on Thursday evening last,
at the Railroad Headquarters hall,
under the auspices of Prof. John
Axtell. About thirty couple? were
masked, and everything considered,
it was a pronounced success. When
it is remembered that Cascade has
not as yet arrived at that stage
'where it would be profitable to import a professional costumer for the
occasion, the customes were really
wonderful.
Messrs. W. Robinson and P. J.
O'Reilly acted in the capacity of
judges, and apparently gave satisfaction. Miss St. John and Mr,
Hildberger were awarded the first
prize.,as the best waltzers; Miss
Mary Smith, representing a "Spirit
of: Christmas," that of the best
dressed lady, while A.,Brown who
afforded so much amusement during the entire evening under the
guise of a clown, carried off the
prize for the best sustained character.
The following is only a partial
list of the costumes worn :
Miss McCabe, the Maine; Mrs.
Eckstorrn, Phantom ; Mrs.St. John,
Tutti Frutti Gum ; Miss St. John,
Snowball; Mrs. Sutte, School Girl ;
Miss Kate Smith, Sunflower; Emma
Stuck, Summer Girl; Mrs. Jagger,
Night; Miss Mary Smith, Spirit of
Christmas; Mr��. Carpenter, Cascade Record; Miss Jagger, Greek
Girl, and Mrs. A. Smith, Peasant
Girl.
J. W. Turner, Soldier ; F. Hep-
burne, Clown ; T. J. Gorman, Jew ;
W. J. T. Watson, Colored Gent; J.
Fisher, German Count; H. D.
Cameron, Mexican Sport; A.
Smith, Colored Woman ; J. Kennedy, Dutchman, and A. Brown as
a clown.
Surveying for the Smelter
C. A. Stoess, who was stationed
here by Manager Aldridge, of the
Trail timelier, to begin the immense
amount of preliminary work, preparatory to starting active work on
the Cascade smelter, has been employed at it for the last four weeks.
His investigations have heen universally satisfactory in every particular, and the local conditions by
actual expert examination have
been found to suit the necessities
of such a great undertaking to a
degree.
Mr. Stoess found by personal examination that the clay to be had
here is admirably adapted to the
manufacture of 2,000,000 brick
that will be required in the construction of the many buildings
needed for smelter purposes. The
lime for fluxing purposes, Mr.
Stoess has fonnd by careful investigations can he had in ample
quantities within two or three miles
of the smelter site.
This week Mr. Stoess has been
running lines and taking levels for
the flume which will he used to
furnish the water supply for the
smelter. This flume will be a mile
long, at least two and one-half feet
square, and the intake will be at or
near the dam now being constructed above the caBOftdes.
rlore Telephone Wires
W. B. Oaks, of Meyers Falls, one
of the originators and builders of
the telephone line from Spokane to
Rossland,.and into the Boundary
country, was in Cascade early this
week. He gave it out here that, as
soon as spring opened up, one or
two more telephone wires would be
strung into the Boundary country,
and at least one additional instrument placed in each of the office*.
If this is done it will greatly improve, the present. facilities for
speedy communication with the
outside world.
Its the finest in the Boundary���
the Cascade Record job work.
Railway Contractors' Headquarters are
Now Here.
REMAIN TILL WORK IS FINISHED
Paymaster Woodman and the Entire
Foree Came Overland From Brooklyn���A
Narrow Escape.
Last Monday B. F. Woodman,
the paymaster for Mann, Foley
Bros. & Larson, tiie contractors fur
the Robson-Penticton branch of the
Columbia & Western railway, now
being rapidly built into the Boundary country, arrived in Cascade
Monday evening. With him also
came the book-keeper, Mr. Krebs,
stenographer Lamey and J. Ed.
Beaton, assistant to Purchasing
Agent McLeod, the latter being
already here. The- party came
over the tote road from Brooklyn,
and brought the books, papers, safe
and general office effects of the
firm.
The first few days were occupied
in getting settled in the new office
building lately put up for the
headquarters, n����ar the storehouse
of the contractors, on the flat, just
below Black's hotel. Everything
is now in running order, however,
and the usual stream of persons
having business with that much
sought-after individual, the paymaster, is seen daily wending it��
way to hie office.
Hereafter all business, of whatsoever nature, relating to this great
piece of railway building will lie
transacted in Cascade, where the
headquarters will be located till
the work is completed.
Had a Narrow Escape
The snow storm which visited
Cascade Monday night amounted
to a blinding blizzard on the divide
between here and Brooklyn, and
for a space of four miles, from 20-
Mile House to Gladstone, the road
was completely drifted in and
obliterated.
Alex McPherson, of McPherson
Bros. A Stout, the sawmill men,
left Brooklyn Tuesday afternoon,
for Cascade. On the long, rocky
hill, opposite Olson's tunnel, he
found the road drifted in so that
he could not follow it, and finally
his horse, a splendid animal, could
get no further. He worked for
two hours in the bitter cold, but
finally had to abandon him, and
press on a foot to Gladstone. He
sent two men back and by great
exertions the horse was rescued and
brought to Gladstone.
Early Wednesday the contractors sent out 100 men to shovel
out the several miles of snowdrifts,
but when it drifted in faster than
the snow could be taken out, the
job was postponed till the next
day, when the gang resumed the
work of opening the road to traffic.
Mr. McPherson. had a very narrow
escape and does not care to gn
through the same experience again
for a long time to come.
Progress on the Den Work
Notwithstanding the severity of
the weather this week, substantial
progress bas been made in the work
of building the big dam just above
town. A Record representative
visited the scene of operations, and
counted 25 men busy at different
parts of the work. Superintendent
Anderson and Foreman Simmons-
were both on the scene directing
the work. One gang was busy
setting the round timbers in their
long resting place, another was
bringing in the timbers and a third
was filling in with stone. On the
south side of the river P. F. Quinlivan had a force at work on an
open cut, where the flume will run,
out of which he will take rock, under the contract awarded him last
week.
Dana and Barber have so far delivered about 15,000 feet of the
60,000 contracted for, and have six
men and several teams busy. They
have built a temporary bridge
across the river, and are bringing
much of the timber from a point a
mile or more away.
Our Cold Wave
After a prolonged season of wet
and sloppy weather, this week bas
brought a sudden change, and old
Boreas seemed determined to break
the local record for cold weather.
At any rate he has sent the mercury flying downward by leaps and
bounds, until it was almost lost
sight of. Following the snow
storm of Monday night, the temperature began to change, and each
day has been colder than its predecessor. Yesterday morning was
the coldest yet, a registering thermometer showing 25 degrees below
zero. Reports from other locations,
however, such as Grand Forks, Republic and Greenwood, are to the
effect that it was considerably colder in each place. In fact Cascade
was warm beside some of them.
The cold wave prevails throughout the northwest, and it is the
most severe experienced in a number of years.
Will Distribute Here
Norman McLellan <fc Co. have
established a wholesale hay, grain
and feed depot in Cascade, and
rented the large Fletcher barn on
Second Avenue, to be used as a
warehouse. Mr. McLellan has
been here several days, and before
coming ordered 12 carloads of hay.
and oats shipped to this point.
Three or four of these have already
arrived, part coming by way of
Brooklyn and balance by Bossburg
Mr. McLellan was located for a
couple of years at Slocan City,
where he conducted a successful
business. He will make Cascade
his headquarters and distribute to
Grand Forks, Greenwood and other,
important Boundary points.

T. J. Gorman, of the Cove hotel,

next l'imonhts. Hedid not hanker
after it, but he got it just the same.
It will lie remembered that Mike
impersonate an officer in Cascade a
couple of months since, and tried to
levy tribute from several houses in
the tenderloin. He was arrested and
held for trial. Last Saturday his
case came up, and Judge Spinks
gave him a year at hard labor to
think it over.
Custom Offices
Now that Cascade City has been
created a regular customs port of
entry, the authorities should take
into consideration the advisability
of rearranging the customs houses
so that the needs of the district can
be conformed to. The removal of
the customs house from Gilpins to
Grand Forks was a mistake, the
authorities at the time complying
rather with the wish of a few men
who were interested in the town-
she of Grand Forks, than serving
the great majority of the people of
the district. Instead of moving
Mr. Gilpin's office to Grand Forks,
it should have been taken to Cascade City, and failing this should
have been moved to Carson, a poll.t
on the international boundary line
which has never been covered, although it is at this pont the traffic
to and from the reservation mining camps crosses, out and into
Canada.
For the efficient carrying out of
customs regulations, three points
iu the district should be guarded,
viz., Cascade City, Midway and
Carson, and as offices are now
established at the first two points
named, a customs office should be
opened at Carson, and then all
would be well. Sooner or l��ter
this must be done.���Midway Advance.

in their embryonic stage. Now
they are all the rage. Today just
as fine samples of ores are taken
from prospects from the Burnt
Basin, McRae Creek, Baker Creek
and other sections around Christina lake. Inside of two years the
chance is good for some of these
properties to be classed among the
great mines of British Columbia.
The Record firmly believed they
will be so classified.
NEEDS OP THE DISTRICT
Attorney - General Martin has
flivenitout���and he seems to he
the government's mouthpiece���
that the present session of the legislative assembly will last but
sixty days. If this is the program,
the house will soon get down to the
work of appropriations, the most
important part of its labors. When
that time arrives, there must be no
half heartedness about our member, J. M. Martin, in his insistence
that provision he made for the
needs of this part of the district.
Thus far the government has
dnne nothing���absolutely and positively nothing���for the section
known as the Christina lake min-
iu; district. Nor has it done a
single ihing for Cascade except to
build a $500 jail, the appropiation
l>r which was embodied in the general estimates by the Turner government. It has spent but $150
on our mads, the only highway into or out of the country in the past.
Roads, bridges and trails have all
been paid for hy private subscription. Within the last year at least
$10,000 has been collected in Cascade alone by the government, in
licenses, water rights, etc., to say
nothing of free miner's certificates,
recording fees, etc.
As a return for this upwards of
$10,000 collected, a paltry $650
has been spent. This is neither
justice nor equity, and at its next
week's meeting the Cascade Taxpayer's Association should take
the matter up, mid bring it so
plainly before our member, with
facts and figures, thut he cannot
afford to disregard it.
We need roads, trails and bridges,
among other things, and they
should be built without delay and
kept iu good repair. We need u
school house, and need it badly.
We need some provision for the
sick and destitute. We need a
small debts court.
These things at least Cascade is
entitled to, and if our member does
as he promised, we will get them.
Our people will watch the deliberations of the legislature closely.
Two years ago the Boundary
creek country attracted comparatively little attention from capitalists.    Mining properties were then
The London Standard has seen
Mr. Mulock's new two-cent stamp,
issued on Christmus.and reports the
motto thereon to be, " We hold a
faster empire than has been." To
the uninitiated it may be well to
explain that this version is not intended to convey the idea that the
mail service in British Columbia is
fust���fur from it. Walking would
be more expeditious in cases too
numerous to mention.
for brothers to dwell together in
unity.
The mining (worn in Spokane
has reached such a pitch that a
daily sheet called Stocks, has been
started. E. W. Puckett is editor
and manager, the paper being four
columns in site, and of course
devoted to mining stocks.
The probabilities of Mr. Corbin
being granted a charter for his
Kettle River railway by the Dominion parliament, which opens
this month, seem to be growing
brighter each week. It is said,
however, and generally credited,
thut the C. P. R. will continue its
vigorous fight of the last session
against, its being granted���with
what success remains to be seen.
A public meeting was held at
Midway last week, to plan for
bringing the town to the front and
to encourage industries to locate
there. As the first step to accomplish this to the best advantage, a
committee wus appointed to arrange for incorporation. Midway
has a fine townsite and will undoubtedly be an important point
in the near future.
They are having hot times in
the old town at Victoria, and of
course the Honorable Joseph Martin is the most prominent figure in
the political arena. Whatever the
friends or enemies of the attorney-
general may think, no one will
ever accuse him of being backward
about coming forward. That is
not his way.
A full, round, completed week-
seven days���is the average time
now required hy coast papers to
reach Cascade, and on* can travel
the distance in a day und a half.
What hue become of Inspector
Dorman and his promised reforms ?
The resignation craze seems to
have spent its force ut Victoria,
though not till the minister of
mines, J. Fred Hume, had joined
the popular procession. It is to lie
hoped that the legislative assembly
will soon get down to business.
Bought Into the Ennismore
G. T. Curtis has bought the quarter interest formerly owned by
D. J. Matheson in the Ennismore
mineral claim, located in the
Burnt Basin. It was a cash transaction, though the purchase price
is not given out. The Ennismore
is surrounded by splendid properties in the Basin, and good results
are predicted to follow systematic
development. It was located by
Thomas Keller.

���>���
On announcement in the Record
of the decision by the C. P. R. to
construct a large smelter in Cascade, Contractor Hill, of this cily,
betook himself at once to Trail, to
take steps to secure the work of
-construction on the new enterprise.
Mr. Hill returned this week from
Trail, apparently quite well satisfied that his'chances of getting a
share of the work, when let, are
good. He stated that in circles
that are well posted about such
matters, the new Cascade smelter
.was all the talk, and there was no
doubt about its going ahead.
Mr. Hill has neen located in Cascade for several months, and has
done a large amount of contract
work here, in connection with the
upbuilding of the place. In -melter
work he has had experience,having
had charge of considerable of. the
work of improvement ut the Trail
plant. With Mr, Raynor, Mr. Hill
left for Camp McKinney early in
the week, to look after some mining
property in which he is interested,
but will return to Cascade.: in a
short time,
A few days since an item appeared in the Spokesman-Review
from its correspondent at Republic,
to the effect that it took freighters
10 or 15 days to haul in freight via
the present road through Cascade
and Grand Forks, and that a good
deal of this delay was due to the
red tape used in the custom house
at Cascade. The statement was
misleading and false in every particular, and, if the writer of the
item referred to bad stopped to
think a moment he would have
surely perceived its utter foolishness.
What are the facts ? Simply this,
that it takes not more than half un
hour, on the average, for such
freighters to clear here, and oftentimes ten minutes suffices. Of
course, if a dozen teamsters reach
the custom house at once each
must await his turn. The charge
was not u fair one from any point
of view. All freighters are familiar
with the office hours of the c.u.-loin
house, and can govern themselves
accordingly If they make passing
the customs an excuse for their
own dilatoriness on the road, or
for overloading, that is another
matter.
, ���,;%���  ":
While on this subject, by the
way, it is well known that, is this
part of the country, at least, the
Canadian customs officials are
much more accommodating than
are those across the border, as a

Boats up to Cascade.
The townsite company has decided to clean out Christina creek,
tin that in the spring when high
watef prevails, small limits can lie
brought from Christina lake right
to the doors of the city, as it were.
This work will lie undertaken
liefore the ice breaks up, s.i that
the snags and logs can he more
easily gotten at. Later on a dam
will lie I milt helow the town, so
thut at all seasons Cascade will
hove direct water communication
with the lake.
This will lie the first step towards
making Cascade an ideal summer
resort, which is sure to come to puss
in the course of time.

CHRISTINA'S GAME
I;
ato.to-.be.'Found in
the Vicinity.
Two large lynx skins and a bob*
cat's pelt, the trophies of a local
hitter's chase? one day before the
last big storm, are now on exhitn-
t|bn at the Cascade hotel. As old
tranters well know, all kinds of fur
bearing animals keep a barometef
of]their own, and wmm a storhi
threatens roam aliout in search of
supplies for their larder. Those
aw the days when trapper* imue
h!Ay, as it we're> f/>r tire traps are
sure to lie jjattdnised, and thuse
are the only days of the winter
minting season when the woodsman keeps his weather eye open for
Mr. Cougar, who stands out preeminently as the most cowardly
and treacherous of all the animals
that inhabit British Columbia^ with
perhaps the exception of the wolverine. At night iu the mountains
the cougar, or mountain lion, will
shadow the pedestrian whose trail
he crosses, and during the day pre-'
vious to a big storm he will do the
same; Cougars are great roamere
and don't j-tay long in one place.
An old hunter states that during
tome winters in his recollection,
jthey, | have been very plentiful
around Christina lake, and during
other winters you would scarcely
see .a track.
The skunk bear. American glut'
ton or wolverine, as he is liest
known, is a great traveller and
quite scarce now in these parts.
The wolverine is "cock of the
walk." His tenacity for life is remarkable, his cunning and strength
phenomenal, and it i? said that
even the bear will "link away from
the old carcass he is eating when
the wolverine puts in his appearance. A fair sized wolverine will
weigh about 75 pounds. He is low
and thick set with short claws and
ahead resembling a skunk, while
the rest of the body has the ap
pearance of the bear, with the ex
ception that the tail looks like that
of a skunk cut square off in the
middle. The wolverine fur is valuable, but his thieving propensities
cause him to be despised by the
hunters. Day by day he will follow the hunting" line and destroy
the small fur in the traps, being so
dextrous and cunning as to* sel
dom ever gefpipched.
There are' not many timber
wolves hereabouts now, and what
there are seldom get together in
larger band* than of three or four.
A few years ago, though, a large
pack came down the north fork of
the Kettle river on a foraging trip.
Out of this paclftoAe hunter secured
seven by puttiiHUH#t poison. There
have been a gootfmany wolf tracks
seen around Christina lake this
winter, but we have only heard of
one Iteirig >*en. Last year thete
were severat poisoned on the lake
near English Point.
Beaver are very scarce now si-
though there a re, said to he a few
over oft'. Sheep creek .In ti nies
past they have evidently been very
plentiful around Christina lake, as
numerous beaver signs" are yet
tWblein tho swamps, at the font
ami head of the lake which would
���eerotd he twenty or thirty years
���id. v
Of course tire" ittfcrteu If the twjst
valoahto fw mm, to be, found in
��ny quanlity in the Christina lake
district, and they, tooj are getting
tttnisMtaiui.
Up in the Burnt Basin preyiou*
to the big tire, carilsio used to be
very plentiful, but now they can
only lie found away back on the
big summits.'" The ��-anie may lie
said of the mountain goats.
There has always^ beei. plenty of
hear, black and silver tip, in the
country between Christina and-the
Arrow lakes. George Sutherland
has killed twenty-three*; .quite
enough, sttrely,,��for any one.' man,
but lie, is us keen tor sport as ever,
and will doubtless add many more
to hi* list.
But it is to the deer that the
Christina lakwidistrin in indebted
for its enviable reputation as the
sportsman's paradise. We have
the mule deer and the white tail.
The former has a tail tipped with
hla>k'. The fftuTa dejr" is clumsy,
coarse built, coarse limbed, coarse
featured and coarse harried, while
the white tail is just, the-opposite,
being finely built, nicer'eating and
four timer* as hard to get. The
mule deer were christened.; l-hns on
account of their big ears and tail,
Chelatter- resembling, mules after
thev have been rnached. The white
tail has a white; hu<hy appendage.
The mule deer are found high up
on the ranges, while the white tails
chiefly inhabit the swamps and the
creek bottoms.
The advent of the big army of
prospectors, so closely followed by
the railway and its screeching iron
steed, will naturally cause the original denizensof the Christina bills
and valleys to retreat in time, but
we will have more or less deer limiting and plenty of chances to scrap
with bruin for a year or two.tn
come anvwav.
' Local Beef Shortage
For once there has been a famine
in ihe local market, owing to the
fact that a dressed btef train was
wrecked a ftw days ago on the
main line of the C. I*. R. However,
Manager Harvey Harris, in charge
of P. Burns & Co.'s local branch,
has made every effort to relieve
the situation. In the meantime, it
