 THE CASCADE RECORD
Published In the Interests of the Boundary and Christina Lake  Mining Districts
Vol.L
CASCADE, B. C, JULY 29, 1899.
No. 38.
STR0N6 COMPANY FORMED
To Prosecute Developed on Four Christina Lake Properties.
VICTORIA GOLD-COPPER MINING CO.
Has ��� Capital of $1,000,000, sad Will Start
Work oa a Hundred Foot Tunnel at Once.
Details Arranged at Rowland.
This week Frank E. Starkey, D.
C. Beach and Jerry Spellman, owners of the Victoria group of gold-
copper mineral claims on Christina
lake, held a meeting at Uossland,
and signed incorporation papers.
'I he new corporation is styled the
Victoria Gold and Copper Mining
Co.,' Ltd., and has a capital of
$1,000 000 in one dollar shares. Of
this amount 50,000 shares will he
placed in the treasury at 10 cents,
a good part of which is already
spoken for. The ntw company will
be a British Columbia concern, and
the head office is to he located at
English Point, on the lake. Mr.
Beach, who returned from Rossi* nd
Thursday, has already gone to the
claims, and begun the work of getting the office ready.
The property of the company
consists of four full sized claims,
the Victoria, Evening Star, Copper
Wonder and Copper Mountain, in
a solid block, and they extend'to
the lake sbore. The track of the
new railway line \�� already laid
across the property, so that immediate and cheap transportation is
assured as s"(>n as tbe company is
ready to ship, which it is not I e-
lieved will be long.
Thus far mo"t of the development work has been done on the
Victoria, which has a 30 foot ledge
of sulphide pre. assaying $27,129
and $3(5, respectively. A Record
representative recently visited and
inspected tbe property Work has
already been started cm a tunnel to
tap the ledge Mt a depth of 100 feet,
and Mr. Beach will take a contract
to drive this in for 100 feet or more,
working night and day. As Mr.
Starkey has heen very successful
in his mining operations, and is a
careful, conservative man, all the
capital needed will be readily obtained. Mr. Bench says that he
oan dispctse of $1,000 worth of stock
just to the few who have seen the
property and noted the magnificent
showing.
Excellent Assays oa Joan Ball.
The John Bull Mines, Ltd., has
been steadily developing the John
Bull group for months, located
close to Gladstone. The members
of the company have not been
making much noise, but steadily
"sawing wood," all the same. A
few days ago Hugh McCutcheon,
of Rossland. visited the property,
and while he was there another
contract for driving the tunnel an
additional 100 feet was let. The
tunnel is now in 70 feet. From
average  samples  from , the main
ledge Mr. McCutcheon obtained assays of 131.08. $36.36, and $47.80,
respectively, in all values, the principle value lieii.g in copper. Owners of John Bull stock are feeling
very good indeed at this showing,
and believe the property will make
a mine. Heretofore the assays
have been quite satisfactory, but
these are still better. Little, if
any, treasury stock has yet been
sold, but it is likely that a' limited
amount will be disposed  of.
Provincial Land Surveyor J. D.
Anderson, has been surveying the
Edison group, Mecklenburg and
others in the Burnt Basin, for the
purpose of making application to
secure crown grants.
LOCAL AND QENERAL.
The Nelson, B. C, baseball team
will cross bats with the Grand
Forks boys at the latter place tomorrow.
According to yesterday's Nelson
Tribune, the Kootenay-Yale sawmill combine is likely to fall
through.   '"''''
The Ladies' Aid Society are preparing for a lawn party to be "riven
hi a short time for the benefit of
Rev. J. McCoy.
W. H. McKay, senior member of
the firm of McKay & Argall, ferrymen and contracting freighters, of
Bossburg, was in Cascade Friday.
He will go as far as Greenwood before returning.
"FMHTINfi JOE"IS FIRED
Was Virtually Kicked oat of Premier
Semlin's Cabinet
HIS RESIGNATION HAS BEEN SENT IN
At tbe Government Caucus Thursday, the
Pufnscioui Attorney-General Had Oaly
Three Supporters.
Victoria, B. C, July 27.���Little
hy little the truth about the government caucus last night has
leaked out, in spite of the promises
of secrecy by the members who
were present. One of the main
reasons that Speaker Forester,
Munro of Chilliwack and other
former Martin supporters went
back on him was because of the
charges that Attorney General
Martin's moral life was not as it
should be. Martin, boldly challenged those who made these insinuations to put them in writing and
sign them, hut this, of course, no
one was inclined to do. No motion was put to the meeting, as
Martin promised that as the majority were against him he would
send in his resignation as attorney
general. This he did this afternoon, writing his formal resignation and placing it in the hands of
the lieutenant-governor's secretary.
Of course, it can not be acted upon
till the lieutenant-governor returns
from Atlin iu a few days more.
Martin, however, says he will not
resign his seat in the house, but as
a private member will remain to
fight the men who hi ve ousted him
from office.
At 6:30 this evening Martin had
a row on Trounce avenue, the most
prominent place in the business
center, with Walter C. Nichol, editor of the Vancouver Province, the
paper that was instrumental in
bringing him into public life in
British Columbia. The paper, in
view of recent events, has gone
back on Martin, and this has made
him very angry. Nichol approached Martin as the latter was talking
with a group of friends and wished
the attorney general good evening.
Martin would not notice him, and
mi Nichol repeating the greeting
Martin turned round with a contemptuous grunt and taunted
Nichol with deserting him, futher-
more saying that he had been instrumental in keeping Nichol in
his present position. The lie direct passed between them and Martin gave Nichol a great tongue lashing, calling him a "son of a gun,"
and roasting him roundly. No
blows, however, were struck, though
it looked at first like a fight.
There appears to be no decision
yet as to Martin's successor, though
Charles Wilson. Q. C, .Vancouver,
would, it is said, be Semlin's choice
if a sent could be found for him.
W. W. B. McFnnes, son of the lieutenant-governor, is also spoken of

W. W. Banning was murdered
at Republic Sunday afternoon, by
having bis skull crushed in with a
rock.   The assailant is not known.
A large number of the friends of
W. B. Pa ton, of Greenwood, were
shocked to learn of his death recently. He was an old timer in
the country.
Mr. Eva Smith and Miss Rhoda
Stewart, both formerly of Cascade,
who were married a short time
ago in Vancouver, are now on their
way to Europe on their wedding
trip.
"The C. P. R. will take ovei tbe
completed portion of the new line
as soon as the track is laid into
Cascade," said Supt. Jack Stewart,
of Mann, Foley Bros. & Larson, to
a Record representative this morning. While this was expected, the
definite announcement means a
great deal to Cascade, and to the
entire Boundary district, which baa
been so long waiting ft r railway
transportation.
Mr. Stewart returned this morning from a few days' rest at Haley-
ou Hot Springs, and came in over
the railway, which is now a trifle
over three miles frc m Cascade. The
rails will be over Sutherland creek
Monday, and by next Saturday
will doubtless reach Kettle river.
The pleasant whistle of the track-
laying locomotive is now heard
here daily, and far up the long
giade the workmen can be seen.
Dan Brown and his 50 men are
finishing up leveling the grade
east of town, and in a few days
he will begin the work of widening
the grade west of the city some
four or five feet. It is done to permit the constiuction of the flume
by the Cascade Water Power Co.
Nearly a thousand yards of rock
are to be removed, and this work
will probably be completed before
the additional sidetrack is put in
at the station gre unds.
It has been derided not to put in
false work for the span over Kettle
river, at the head of the falls, but
to put in the 120-foot span itself,
the timbers for which are now in
the yards at West Robson. It ia
the intention to use a lighter steel
from Cascade on, than the 78 lb.
rail laid in the mountains. None
of the lighter weight rails are now
on haid
All the stringers for the bridges
come from the coast, and Supt.
Marpole is finding it difficult to
get rolling stock to handle them.
Some 30 carloads are yet required,
but special efforts are being made
to get in the 10 cars required for
the 1600-foot bridge over the Kettle
river at Cascade.
It will thus he noted that, as soon
as the track reaches Cascade, and
is accepted by the C- P- R�� tbia
city will he passenger and freight
headquarters for seme time to come.

36 Brief Bite Prom Many Camp*. $
On the Pasadena group, in
Greenwood camp, 13 men are ai
work.
Three feet daily are being made
iu the 500-foot tunnel iu the Volcanic claim. A townsite has been
laid out close tty.
The Gold Bug, in Wellington
camp, has 9 men at work. A new
plant from the Wm. Hamilton
Alfg. Co., will soon be installed.
1'be latest report from the Pathfinder is that 12 feet of solid ore
has been struck. Development
goes steadily on with this north
lork properly.
A miners' union is to be organized shortly, at Greenwood. James
Wilkes, of Nelson, general organizer, will be on hand to complete
arrangements.
Railway workmen, while grading
for the spur to Summit camp, recently opened up three new ledges
on the Oro Denoro property, in
which Smith Curtis is largely interested.
A 10-dr.ill air compressor and
hoist will be installed on the Morrison, Deadwood camp, as soon as
the railway is completed. Ore in
the shaft assays $21 in gold and 1
per cent copper.
Work is about to be started on
the Rathmullen group, on the
north fork of Kettle river. The
property has a 90-foot shaft with a
60-foot crosscut, and so far shows
a ledge 30 feet wide.
Camp McKinney was named
after Al. McKinney, a prospector,
who discovered and named it in
1887. He discovered the now
famous Cariboo, which, however,
was not well known till 1894.
Word has heen received from B.
T. A. Bell, secretary of the Canadian Mining Institute, that on the
forthcoming visit of the members
to) British Columbia., the itinerary
will include the Boundary section.
A 20-drill air compressor has
been ordered for the Sunset mine
in Deadwood camp, to come from
the James Coiper Mfg. Co., of Montreal. The owners of the property
have $125,1)00 on hand for development.
The Royal Victoria Mining Co.
is the name of the company being
formed to take over the Golden
Eagle group, on the north fork of
Kettle river. It will have a capital of $1,000,000, and the property
is owned hy S. Moulton Barrett.
The annual meeting of the Cariboo Consolidated Gold Mining
Company of Camp McKinney was
held in Toronto a few days ago.
From the statement submitted it
is learned that the total out-put of
the Cariboo to date has been about
$615,000 and the dividends $348,-
000.
Henry Johns, well known as the
superintendent of the Mother Lode,
Deadwood camp, has tendered his
resignation, and will soon take
charge of the Sunset group, in the
same camp, owned by the Montreal Boundary Creek Mining Co.
Mr. Macfarlane, who has had
charge of the Sunset during its
1,350 feet of development, will he
the business manager of the concern, with headquarters at Greenwood.
BIRD NOTES.
The martin is a bird. There are
three types: House martins, Sand
martins and Joe Martins. The
last and least variety is of the
swift species, hard to swallow and
very indigestible. Unlike the Sand
martin, it is opposed to mining
operations. It is short-lived, presto macluro, presto podrida. It has
bright eyes and a hooked beak, a
black coat and a snow white
breast. Sometimes over feeds and
becomes ferocious after meals. It
soars like an eagle and falls like a
sand bag. Has even been known
to attain great altitude, but cannot
survive the elevation and descends
abruptly to its normal level. Of
inferior craninlogical development
but presents a hill of abnormal
dimensions.   Its soul is in its feet.
Will work only eight hours
daily. Is migratory in its habits,
an occasional visitor to British
Columbia; of no known utilitarian
value and likely to disappear as
autumn approaches.

FOR THE OOOD OP BOUNDARY,
Mr Stanley Mayall, one of Cascade's delegates to the meeting of
the boards of trade of Kootenay
and Yale, which will he held in
Rossland next Thursday, believes
that in many respects the interests
of the different parts of the Boundary section are identical. Accordingly, he has addressed a letter, on
behalf of the Cascade delegation,
to other organizations in Boundary, suggesting a conference of the
delegates from this section, prior
to the general meeting, for the purpose of talking over interests that
are mutual to Boundary residents
���in general, and thereby arrange
for some line of action at the convention that will be beneficial to
all.
The idea is a good one, and appears to meet with the approval of
others interested. If the Boundary
delegates recommend and vote for
certain measures, they are more
than likely to be given the approval of the convention, and the recommendation of the convention as
as a whole to Dominion or provincial officials will undoubtedly receive the consideration deserved.
It is highly probable, if the conception of purely local needs does not
keep the delegates too far apart,
that, we shall, within a reasonable
time, secure a number of needed
changes that would otherwise be
many, many moons in arriving.
The united voice of a convention
of this character, when lifted in a
righteous cause, will be given due
attention in the legislative halls at
Victoria or Ottawa.
above utterance. Possibly it was
done with the idea of showing the
American senator that he meant
business. Yet there is a general
belief that the British North America act did not confer upon him
the authority to declare war, as
that duty is one of those reserved
to the mother country, and England would exhaust every known
expedient before such a resort.
Before the gold fields of the far
north were known to be so valuable, but little attention was paid to
the difference in opinion as to the
exact location of the boundary
line; but since its richness was
was proved it becomes an exceedingly important matter. That the
two English speaking peoples of the
world should go to arms to settle
such a dispute is inconceivable.
Representatives will undoubtedly
get together and finally agree upon
a basis of settlement, even though
it requires extended deliberation to
accomplish it. The world will not
go back iu its advanced civilization.
If it did, such gatherings as The
Hague peace conference, now drawing to a close, would be a farce,
and few doubt but that it was entered into in all sincerity
NOTE AND COMMENT.
"The passing of Joe Martin" is
the way nearly every journal in
the province refers to the Manitoba
statesman these days.
Cape Nome, north of St. Michaels, where gold was said to be
plenty, is proving to be worthless.
Only salt is said to be found there.
New York City is now being
afflicted with a lock-jaw epidemic,
according to the press reports. It's
a pity it could not strike Victoria
���at (east, in a mild form.
Several days ago it was heralded
far and wide that a sulphur spring
had been discovered near Grand
Forks. This explains the hot
times between tbe rival townsites
thereabouts.
LAURIBR AND WAR.
The Alaskan boundary dispute
has reached that stage where Premier Laurier has seen fit to assert
that, unless the Americans consent
to arbitrate the knotty problem,
there will be war. This was said
after Senator Fairbanks' published
statement that he did not think
the* Americans would agree to arbitrate.
Sir Wilfred is an able man, occupying a high position, and while,
as a matter of course, his political
opponents criticise him severely,
he should be given credit for doing
what he thinks is the best for the
country. However, it appears that
he was a trifle hasty in making the
MARTIN'S HOHENUNDEN.
In Rosaland, when the snn was low,
And Joseph Martin dressed to go
To that big banquet, don't-oher-know ?
Hit spirits surged tumultaously.
In the great dining hall so bright,
When the gong struok at eight of night,
All robed la evening dress���quite right-
Sat Martin In his flnery.
But Rossland saw another eight.
'Twat Joseph in hi* own true light,
A man whose thoughts were dark at night,
A model of stupidity.
Each speaker, spotlessly arrayed.
With wit and humor there essayed
To compliment the man who made
The centre of tbli gathering.
Then Joe' torn came, at was expected,
And, at of yore, he naught neglected
To run the whole show, none excepted,
The province looking on.
He dwelled at length on thlt and that.
Some say he talked right through hie hat,
And others asked, "Where are we at ?"
While all were bored most grlevlourly.
Then Joe grew warm, his temper riven,
And vowed that never, under heaven,
Should any province cash be given
For court honse or such flummery.
He fumed and swore and tore his hair,
And In hit wrath be did declare-
That those who were assembled there
Were hoboes from their underwear.
The combat deepened, and one brave,
Hating to bear a Martin rave,
Struck at bis face and said, -'You knave!"
Martini are but small poultry.
Then Joe, ashamed, those 'round did greet:
"You've woven Rossland's winding sheet,
She'll get her court house, but I'll beat
Tbli crowd before I've done with it."
Teasers far Cascade's School Hoik.
Secretary Ferguson, of the Cascade school board, has received
word from the department of lands
and works at Victoria, that plans
and specifications for the new
school building in Cascade have
been prepared, and that tenders
for the work will be called for immediately. Notice to this effect
will probably appear in this week's
official Gazette. This apparently
definitely assures the construction
of the building this summer.
The Victoria Colonist says that
we may live and flourish a thousand years and not witness such a
political circus as is now being
presented in this province. Verily, several thousands of them.
Few in the interior will dispute
the Rossland Miner's assertion that
what is desired most is a change of
government that will pay seme attention to the wants of the inland
constituencies. The majority of
the people have little interest in
either side of the Martin-Cotton
muddle.
Many Slocan mines are said to
he idle yet on account of the eight-
hour law. A few are running, but
the majority are silent as the
grave. Some are being operated
on the contract system. In the
Boundary the $3.50 wage is being
quite universally paid.

THE CASCADE RECORD
PASSING THRONG
"Jack" Hanley, probably the
best known character in the world
of mining in this northwest country, was in Cascade Wednesday.
He was en route to Republic where
he is directing development on the
Insurgent, of which he is a heavy
stockholder. Mr. Hanley has been
interested in mining in these parts
for the past 15 years, and was
superintendent of the famous Old
Dominion, at Colville, during its
balmy days. The Old Dominion
is regarded by mining experts to
be the most scientifically developed
mine in the state of Washington,
and it is due to his ability that
nearly $2,000,000 in dividends
were paid.
During the past year Mr. Hanley
has heen devoting his time tp the
development of the Bonanza, near
Bossburg, of which he owns a quarter interest and which recently
passed into the hands of a wealthy
Toronto syndicate at a fancy figure.
Mr. Hanley thinks that time will
prove his Insurgent property to be
one of the best mines in the great
camp of Republic.
Rev, Dr. Robertson, of Winnipeg,
Presbyterian home missionary,
who will occupy the pulput of Cascade's church tomorrow evening, is
the right man in the right place,
having been in the work for years.
His strongest point is adapting
himself to circumstances. This is
sh.iwn by an instance in early days
in Kootenay. Coming to a certain
mining town, the only possible
place to hold service was a barroom/- The useof this was granted,
providing it did hot intefere with
business. During the service a
man came in for a drink, and the
exercises were temporarily suspended while it was being furnished. The doctor was preacher,
chorister, hat passer and all, but
says he thinks good was accomplished that day, notwithstanding
the peculiar surroundings.
Last Thursday Rev. McCoy re
ceived a check for $25 from Dr.
Robertson to be applied towards
the new church now being ereeted
in Cascade. Dr. F. J. Ewing, who
was in town early in the week, an
old Ontario acquaintance of Mr.
McCoy, has also generously contributed a similar amount. The
trustees, by the way, state that if
this should meet the eye of any
one of a similar turn of mind, a
few more subscriptions like the
above would be greatly appreciated.
(,C. C. Chipman, of Winnipeg,
chief commissioner of the Hudson's
Bay Co., who was in Cascade with
the party of C. P. R. railway,
officials last Saturday, is looking
the Boundary over with a view to
putting in another branch or two
in the future. He was delighted
with the situation of Cascade, and
its outlook for the future. He has
not decided yet where the new
branches will be. At present the
nearest stores of this great concern
are located at Vernon and Nelson,
hut of course they get hut little of
the Boundary trade.

I BY THE WAYSIDE I
*kUt**ft**ftftftMftKftft^^
The promotorB of Grand Forks
are doing some excellent advertising in one way and another, but
occasionally they draw to a large
extent on their imagination, and
make statements that are far removed from the truth. For instance, it has been published far
and wide that arrivals number
from 100 to 150 daily. A little
figuring will show the utter absurdity of such a remark. A town
can never get prominence by such
perversion of facts. It may go for
awhile, but the reckoning day is
sure to come.
In the language of the day, the
Columbia Review has not been doing a thing to the vice-president
and manager of the townsite company. Throwing grammer, ethics
and a few other things to the
winds, it sails into him with hammer and tongs. Here is the way
the Review puts it in a recent
issue:
"The business of advertising a
town, free gratis is slightly too
philanthropic a movement for us.
We would like very well to do so
if we had the stuff, but that, unfortunately, is our weak point.
But on the other hand we would
not mind throwing in a few extras
if we seen the people who get the
benefit of our labors deserved it."
The Columbia Stage people, contractors for carrying the mail, it is
said, assert that when there is any
kicking on poor mail service it always comes from Postmaster Cameron, of this place, and from the
Cascade Record. Mr. Cameron
only does his duty, and adhers to
the rulen of the postal department,
in sending in the many "kicks"
that he does on the mail service.
The Record, al��o, believes it would
not be attending to its duty if it
did not show up the negligence of
the mail carriers. This week again,
on Tuesday and Thursday, important sacks were carried through, to
the great annoyance and inccrve-
nience of our people. We submit
it to the community in general, or
to any individual in particular, if
there is not more than ample
grounds for complaint over the prehistoric, antedelnvian, careless, nn-
nccoiint service r/iven to Cascade
by the Columbia Stage Co. A IB-
year old boy, with a good cny.use.
could do infinitely better. No
wonder the people sav with vehemence. "How long. Oh, Lord, how
long!"
If, as is currently reported. John
R. Reavis, of the Republic Miner,
has bought out the Grand Forks
Miner, the latter town is to be congratulated. Mr. Revis is a journalist of wide experience, and will
undoubtedly give the Forkers a
clean, up-to-date weekly, a paper
of which they may be proud.
There is ample support for such a
journal in our sister town, and
the man who made such a success
of the old Rossland Miner, will, we
believe, repeat it in his new field.
Horse stealing is growing altogether too prevalent in these parts,
and a few examples made of the
thieves would nave a healthy effect
on the reprehensible fraterity. An
organized gang is believed to he in
existence and at work. 6
THE   CASCADE   RECORD
July 89,   1800
KETTLE RIVER PLACER GROUND.
Thought to be Valuable on the Head Waters
olour River.
Fred. Williamson in a letter to
George Doyle, says the Nelson
Tribune, gives a description of a
new placer district which lint been
discovered about nine miles from
the head waters of the Kettle river.
The new Held iu about 30 miles
from the Arr.iw lake through Fire
valley, and some 60 miles over the
waaon road from Vernon to the
Mclntyre mine, and five miles over
a trail from the Mclntyre mine.
Two claims were being worked
when Williamson arrived. On one
of them he writes that J. Worth is
taking out $5 a day, and on the
other J. Lol|>e is doing something
better than $i. The former is
working on bedrock and has from
five to six feet of good pay gravel
in an old creek bed. Lodge has
about four feet of pay gravel and
is working on a clay bottom. Williamson cays that there is lots of
ground both above and below the
claims of Worth and Lodge, and
he has taken up some of it. There
is more or less copper float in the
the neighborhood, but the weather
so far has been against prospecting.
Mr. Doyle says that the placer
ground in which he is interested
will pay about a dollar a yard, and
that the wash is about 15 feet deep.
One outfit has built a flume about
3,000   feet   long,  and   others   are
opening   up
their ground. The
best way m is by Fire Valley,
although there is considerable timber on the trail.
YALE-KOOTENAY LUMBER COMBINE.
Gigantic Company to Take Over Saw Mill
Plants.
A short time since a meeting of
the representative sawmill men of
Kootenay and Yale was held al
Nelson, for the purpose of considering the advisanility of forming a
combine, or, as it would be better
known nowadays, a trust. At this
gathering (he subject was discussed
in detail, and a temporary organization was formed. Those present
were in favor of organizing a strong
company to take over the various
plants and stocks at an appraised
valuation, payment to be made in
paid up stock of the new corporation.
In accordance with these suggestions, the secretary is now in
communication with the owners of
those mills not represented at the
meeting, and it is confidently believed that the combination will be
organized as expected. One object
of the proposed organization is to
prevent cutting in prices, which
prevailed to some extent. It is
said the average rate will be raised
$5 per thousand feet.
Among the concerns represented
were the large Genelle mills, the
Nelson mills, the Blue mills of
Rossland and Greenwood, and oth
ers.    '1 he Cascade sawmill owners
think favorably of the scheme.
Send it Back East.
The Cascade Record will be sent
to any place in Canada or the
United States for one year on receipt of $2. It pays special attention to mining iu the Boundary
and Christina lake sections, and
aims to give the most reliable information in regard to this fast
developing country.
