CASCADE, B. C, OCTOBER 28, 1899.
No. 51.
C. P. R.'s President Toured Into The
Was Accompanied by a Large Contingent of
His Efficient Staff of Co-workers-PresI-
dent's Car off the Track.
This week the Boundary country
was honored by a. visit from the
highest officials in the employ of
the C P. R. The distinguished
party came in Wednesday on a
special train, made short stops at
Cascade and Grand Forks and proceeded to the end of the track at
Greenwood, returning the next day.
The following composed the party:
Thomas G. Shaughnessy, president of the C. P. R.; Wm. Whyte of
Winnipeg, manager of all the lines
west of Fort William; L. A. Hamilton of Winnipeg, land commissioner; R. Marpole of Vancouver,
general superintendent of the Pacific division; H. J.Cambieof Vancouver, chief engineer of the Pacific division; Geo. McL. Brown of
Vancouver, executive agent; J. P.
Gutelius of Trail, superintendent
of Robson-Rossland branch;. Captain J. W. Troup, commodore of
the Columbia & Kootenay steamboat service; W. H. Aldridge, manager of the Trail smelter; P. A.
Peterson of Montreal, engineer of
the road; W. F. Tye of Trail, chief
engineer of construction; J. G. Sullivan, chief assistant engineer of
construction; A. C. Dennis, engineer of tracklaying; J. McGrail,
private secretary to the president;
D. F. Coyle. private secretary to
Manager Whyte; P. Larson, Timothy Foley and J. W. Stewart, contractors of the road; B. E. Barinds,
Spokane, Ross Thompson and Alexander Dick, Rossland.
ThiB was the first visit of Mr.
Shaughnessy to British Columbia
since becoming president of the
great corporation, and was his
initial trip into the Boundary
Necessarily the visitors' stay was
limited, yet they manifested great
interest in the work being done in
developing the mighty water power
of the Kettle river at Cascade, the
entire party making a special excursion to the head of the falls to
view the extensive improvements
now in progress. Owing to the
lateness of the train on its return,
their contemplated trip about town
and to the smelter site was omitted.
The entire party expressed great
admiration of the beautiful location
of the town, its magnificent water
power and scenery around the lake,
and especially its strategic position
from a commercial and industrial
view. Mr. Hamilton voiced the
sentiments of the entire party in
the remark : "I have faith in the
future of Cascade."
Mr. Shaughnessy remarked that
our people had every reason to be
encouraged, saying they should remember that the railroad was not
completed, consequently the beneficial results of railroad construction were yet to be realized.
On the return trip yesterday the
passenger conch on Mr. Shaugh-
nessy's special train was derailed
on the switchback. No one was
hurt, but the president declined to
continue his journey in it, taking
a caboose instead. It is to be hoped
that he will not get as far down as
the brake-beam before he finishes
his journey.
Hon. F. Carter-Cotton, provincial
minister of public works and of
finance, was heralded by the Kootenay papers to be coming into the
Boundary country yesterday to see
the people and look after their
nepds. If he was on the train, however, no one knew it, though several
wished to greet him at the depot.
Developing Some 6000 Horse Power in
Kettle River.
The 350-foot Dam Is Growing Higher Every
Day���Contractor Quinlivan Has Two
Forces on Rock Work.
Ah fast a men and money can
do it, the great water power available at Cascade is being harnessed
for mining, smelting and industrial
purposes. Within the last few
weeks great progress has been made
on the dam at the head of the
gorge, which, when completed, will
be 350 feet long and 35 high at the
highest point. Foreman Simmons
hap been pushing things there of
late, and the structure is now assuming a more imposing shape.
It is now twenty feet higher than
when work was resumed on it after
the high water season.
S. F. Quinlivan, who has the
contract for filling the cribs with
rock, has gotten well under way
with his part of the work, and now
has a good-sized force on it. Mr.
Quinlivan also has a number of
rock men blasting away for the
foundations for the power house,
at the foot of the falls, just below
the wagon road. On this also he is
making a good showing.
D. P. Barber, who ii clearing the
right of way, 132 feet wide, for the
double-pole line from Phoenix toward Cascade, ha��i the larger part
of the contract done, and will complete it in the course of a couple of
weeks.   He is doing a good job.
Superintendent Anderson's fine,
ten-room residence, on the bluff
over-looking the power house site
is being rushed to completion under
the skillful charge of Contractor
Furguson. It has been enclosed
and roofed, and the plasterers will
soon bein charge. Every part of the
work undertaken, in fact, is now a
scene of great activity, presaging
to some extent the importance it
will be in the future, not only to
Cascade, but to the entire Boundary country.
Mineral Properties Contiguous to Cascade Pushing Operations.
Cannonball Mines, Ltd., Report the Progress
of Exploration Work Satisfactory so
far-Whim for Pontlfex Group.
A number of mining properties
in the territory directly tributary
to Cascade, are getting into such a
Btate of development that machinery will be required for working
them to the best advantage. This
will, of course, mean that development can be carried on more expeditiously and satisfactorily, and
that larger forces of men will soon
be put on.
Early this week work was temporarily suspended on the Cannonball
group on account of water in the
shaft, which is now down 90 feet.
Foreman Stewart went to Rossland
to consult R. Dalby Morkill, jr., in
regard to future operations. As a
result the company expects shortly
to install a pumping plant, and
will then resume development more
vigorously than ever. F. P. Buck,
of Sherbrooke, Que., vice-president
and consulting engineer of the company, will vieit Cascade in a few
days, and make an examination of
the property, when the exact na-
tureof contemplated improvements
will be decided npon.
Mr. Morkill states that the result of the exploratory work thus
far, as reported to the board of directors, is of a very satisfactory
nature, and tbe work of sinking
the shaft will be pushed as soon as
the new machinery is installed.
Whim for the Pontlfex.
J. H. Inkster, manager of the
Pontifex Gold Mining Co., who has
charge of the development on the
immense ledge in the Pontifex
group, on Huckleberry mountain,
five miles from Cascade, has been
in town several days, and yesterday
visited the property. Preparations
for all winter's work are steadily
going forward. Bunk house, cook
house, powder house, mot house
and shaft house have been erected,
and work iB now under way for the
foundations for the whim, which
C. H. May is packing up to the
camp today.
The Pontifex shaft is now down
60 feet. It was the intention to
crosscut at this depth, but now the
shaft will he continued to the 100-
foot level, or deeper, before drifting
commences. Assays have been
most encouraging. While as high
as $1,200 has heen obtained from
picked samples, an average gave
over $12 to the ton. As depth is
attained, this will undoubtedly increase. Probably a dozen men will
he at work ill winter.
J. E. Mills came down from
Shamrock mountain Tuesday, and
states that he feels much encour
aged at the showing made by recent work done on the Prudential,
in which he is interested.
Over $44 has recently been obtained in assays from the Elmore,
on Shamrock mountion. Frank
Hutchinson consequently feels very
good about the future of the property.
A. L. Watson, formerly of Rossland, has secured the contract to
pink the main working shaft of the
B. C. in Summit camp an additional 100 feet.
The ore in the Mother Lode,
Deadwood camp, at a depth of
285 feet is said to be greatly improving in value.
Is the Result of Mr Sbaughnetsy's Visit to
the Boundary
Beginning next Monday, the C.
P. R. will inaugurate the long-
needed daily passenger service into
the Boundary country. This is
the immediate result of President
Shaughnessy's visit this week into
the Boundary section.
Trains will leave West Robson
at 9.05 a. m., arriving at Cascade
at 12.35, and at Grand Forks at
1.15 p. no'. Returning, train departs from Grand Forks at 3
o'clock, reaching Cascade at 3.40,
and West Robson at 7.40 p. m.
Close connections will be made both
ways with Nelson and Rossland
This change will be a welcome
one to the many who have had the
experience of spending a long and
tedious day on the rails between
West Robson and Cascade, while a
wheezy locomotive did nearly all
the switching and freighting on the
line. For the present trains will
only run as far as Grand Forks,
though the road will doubtless
shortly be opened up as far as
���  Will Visit the Old Country.
Oscar Englund, one of the C. P.
R. division engineers on the new
railway, who was located in Cascade for over a year, expects to eat
his Christmas dinner at his old
home in Norway. He will return,
however, in time to resume the surveys in the Similkameen, which the
C. P. R. is anxious to complete as
soon as possible. He will be back
by February 1st.
Mr. Englund is one of the best
engineers on the entire staff, and is
held in high favor by his employers, on account of his wide and
practical experience, and ability to
untangle almost any kind of an
engineering knot.
Tbe next meeting of the Board
of License Commissioners of Boundary Creek License District, will not
be held till the time of the regular
semi-annual session, which is Friday, December 15th. The place of
meeting has not been selected vet.
The swamp just north of Hall's
bridge, through which the Boss-
burg-Cascade wagon road runs, is
now, owing to the protracted rains,
a veritable quagmire, and is tbe
terror of all teamsters and freighters. THE   CASCADE   RECORD

had already appeared twice, insisted on a trial, and the case, after
due consideration was abandoned.

Wednesday morning of last week
while William H. Hamilton was
oiling the machinery in the pug
mill at the Northport smelter, his
arm was accidentally caught by the
revolving cog-wheels and horribly
mangled, while the bone above the
elbow was broken and protruded
through the flesh. It was thought
best by the friends of the injured
man that he be sent to Spokane
where a surgical operation could be
more safely executed if found necessary, and accordingly he was removed to Spokane the same day.���

Couldn't Make the Correction.
��� A local paper published a long
obituary of a man who had died in
the community, closing with the
statement that "a long procession
followed the remains to their last
roasting place." The family read
the notice and discovered the supposed error and asked the editor to
make a correction in the word
"roasting," but he said be could
not do it until seven years' back
subscription the deceased owed
had been paid.���Ex.

As a rule prospectors rarely get
too much for their claims, to reward them for months and years
of toil and privations in the hills.
This does not mean that they get
the prices they ask. Not at all. If
they did, we would all he millionaires. But, almost without exception, prices are asked by locators of
prospects that are beyond all reason. The publisher of the Record
has in mind one case where an
owner asked $40,000 cash for a
mere prospect���promising, it is
true, but nevertheless a prospect.

informed the writer that he expected to get $60,000 from a certain
capitalist for hie claim. It so happened that the prospective buyer
was also seen a few days later, and
said he should not take up the
bond, as the terms were too severe.
In both of these case? there was no
ore in the dump and little or no
work done. In both, also, liberal
terms would have resulted in a deal
being made.
In this connection the opinion of
J. G. Blackstock, a large owner in
the Central Star and War Eagle
mines at Rossland, on the comparative prices of mining properties in
the United States and Canada, as
given in the New York Tribune, is
interesting.   He said:
"Iam satisfied that mining properties in the United States anywhere weBt of the Rocky mountains
can be bought cheaper than similar
properties in Canada. In other
words the American Government
gives a better chance to miners than
the Canadian Government does.
This statement is really against my
own interest, for I own no mining
properties in this country, although
I hope to some day. Your
people, too, will sell for Iobs money
than you can buy for anywhere
else. The reason for the great
boom in copper properties just now
is, I think, partially accounted for
by the scarcity of other investments
and also because of the present high
price of copper."
What we need is development,
and every encouragement should
he given those willing to put money
into our prospects. Some are doing this and they will surely be the
gainers in the long run.
The Boundary Creek Times, of
Greenwood, is all right. It knows
a good thing when it sees it. Last
weeks issue was printed in red, fol
lowing the example set by the
Record���u sort of red-letter day
on the arrival of the first railway
train at that progressive town.
The long-deferred war in the
Transvaal has at lust commenced
in earnest, and all of the mighty
machinery of the British government is now being directed against
the Boers. There can be but one end
to the struggle. The English arms,
even if a few reverses are experienced at first, will doubtless finally
triumph. It is a most unequal
contest, but it is generally conceed-
ed that the Boers have brought it
on themselves. Very many predictions have been made as to the
probability of the Boers being to a
degree successful at first, before the
full strength of the British army,
now on the way, arrives at the
Cape and is hurled against the
armies of Oom Paul, but thus far
the dispatches state that the
Queen's soldiers have the best of it.
A regiment of 1,000 men will go
from Canada, and the recruiting is
now going on all over the Dominion. It goes without saying that
many times this allotment could
be raised on a moments notice
almost. From British Columbia,
but 50, it is announced will be accepted, although hundreds are anxious to take a hand in the fighting.
The nations of Europe are watching with evident surprise the gigantic preparations being made for
carrying the conflict by the
British war office. It is believed
that an example of what England
can do on land as well as on the
high seas will be given. And it
will doubtless he an eye-opener to
some of the powers.
The expression of regret that the
contingent of soldiers for service in
the Transvaal, to be forwarded by
the Dominion government, cannot
be maintained and officered as
a distinctively Canadian organization, is very general. However,
the Imperial will that the 1,000
Canadian soldiers shall be divided
into units of 125 and attached to
British regiments, is loyally submitted to.
It is stated that the number of
miners employed in the Boundary
country to-day reaches about 3,200.
The figures, of course, are only
approximate. This small army of
toilers is earning in wages monthly
an amount exceeding $315,000.
The Vancouver World says that
Geo. B. McAuley, the Bonanza King
of Camp McKinney, who is enjoying the third large fortune he has
made in mines, has leased for 20
years 10,000 acres of land on the
picturesque coast of northern Scotland. He has stocked it with sheep
and will spend a few months each
year on this property, fishing and
Some travellers on the new railway are surprised at the development of the water power now going
on at Cascade. There is no occasion for surprise. The power is
there, and it is being put in shape
for transmission iu the form of
electrical energy, for the development of the big Boundary mines,
as fast as practically unlimited
capital can accomplish it. It will
be a great thing for Cascade and
the Boundary country when completed next spring.
In circles supposed to be well
posted, it is whispered that the C.
P. R. intends to build its line from
Midway to Hope next year, and
that preliminary preparations for
that purpose are being made. It
has been supposed of late that this
extension would not be made for a
couple of years. Evidently the big
corporation wishes to complete its
long cut-off as soon as possible.
Sir Thomas Lipton is one of the
right sort. He took the defeat of
his fine yacht, the Shamrock, by
the Columbia, in the true spirit,
and acknowledged manfully that
he was fairly and squarely beaten.
He says he wil) tackle the job
again with a new yacht in 1901.
He deserves all the free advertising
he has received for his Ceylon teas.
When the present plans are carried out, Cascade will have a greater developed water power than is
now in use in the Kootenay river
at Bonnington falls, and nearly as
much as at the great falls of the
Spokane in the city of that name.
Six years at hard labor was the
sentence for J. R. Cameron, at the
trial at Kamloops, for being implicated in the burning of the Hotel
Columbia last July. Many will
think the sentence is none too severe���perhaps not severe enough.

Mullen, wha was tried at Kamloops last Saturday in connection
with the Columbia hotel arson case,

six years at hard labor. This will
probably end the case.
Thomas Robbins, aged 20 years,
died at Phoenix last Wednesday.
He was the son of Frank Robbins,
M. E., superintendent of the Dominion Copper Co., who has the
sympathy of a host of friends.
Frederick K. Hughes, who is well
known as a pseudo realty manipulator in Rossland, Northport, Bossburg, Cascade, Grand Forks, Chesaw, Greenwood and a few other

Bossburg on Monday.
Greenwood will not be far behind
Grand Forks in being the proud
possessor of a daily paper, as it is
said that the Times, of that bustling

into the Boundary country over
the new railway, Brother Ross will
have a chance to exercise his patience before it arrives.
Next Wednesday an interesting
foot race will take place from the
west end of the Bull Dog tunnel to
Cascade and return, over the wagon
road. The distance is about 68
miles, round trip. The contestants
are Frank Corte,the Brooklyn-Cascade mail carrier, and a man named Walker, who is cook at the tunnel camp, and $100 a side is the
stake. Walker claims to have a
record of 100 miles in 13 hours, 33
minutes, 13 seconds, at New Orleans. It should be an interesting
event, as both men are in good condition.    	
Progress of the Transvaal War.
Great interest prevails over the
war in the Transvaal, and the daily
papers are eagerly sought after on
their arrival. Thus far several battles have taken place, with victory
for the British forces as a result.
The Boers are on the offensive, and
as expected and determined fighters. When the main part of the
English forces arrive, a forward
movement will be inaugurated.
Bossburg Line Now Leis Over at Night Both
Ways-Roads in Bad Shape.
During the hist week Messrs,
Brockinan and Lay, of the Bossburg and Columbia stage line, have
found it next to impossible to make
the round trip from Bossburg to
Grand Forks on schedule time, on
account of the bad state of the
wagon roads, due to heavy rains.
Several times the stages, supposed
to leave Cascade for Bossburg at 5
a.m., have not got away till 7
o'clock, which, of course, greatly
lessened the chance of making con
nections with the Spokane Falls &
Northern trains.
Beginning last night tbe stage
stopped over night in Cascade, and
this morning about,six o'clock it
left for Grand Forks, where connections will be made about 9
o'clock with the Republic and
Greenwood stages. Returning from
Grand Forks, the stage will leave
that town about 3 p. m., leaving
Cascade for Bossburg early the
following morning. Thus al! stages
will lie over night at Cascade both
Mr, Brockman, one of the proprietors of the line was in town
Wednesday, and was asked hy a
Record representative how long
this was likely to last. He replied
that he thought the new schedule
would prevail all winter.
Stage travel continues heavy,
notwithstanding the Spokane exposition rush is over. Nearly every
vehicle is loaded to the guards on
each and every trip.
Cascade Ultlander Club.
A few of the ladies of Cascade
met in social intercourse at Mrs.
G. K. Stocker's residence Wednesday afternoon. Luncheon was served and a pleasant afternoon of
needle-work and chit-chat indulged
in. It was observed that six nationalities were present, consisting
of Canadian, English, Welsh, Norwegian, French and American. It
was decided to hold meetings as a
club throughout the winter, and the
name considered, and which will
probably be adopted is the Uit-
lander (foreigner) club. The members thus far are Mesdames Monnier, Anderson, McLeod, Carden,
Woodman, Stocker and Miss Dar-
row.              '
Dislocated His Shoulder.
Monday O. N. Bell, of Bossburg,
who was driving three passengers
to that town, had a runaway and
smash-up right in town. The
horses, a team of heavy greys, got
loose at the post office, and after
throwing out those of the passengers who had not alighted, and
turning a few pirouettes, ran away.
One of the passengers, " Doc" Williams, a gambler from Grand Forks,
had his shoulder dislocated and
was otherwise badly bruised. He
went to Rossland next day on the
C. P. R. train, for treatment. The
other passengers,Tom Donahoeand
Jack Cummings proceeded on their

The Optimistic Pkib ol the Mining Camps
When one reads the papers from
every section of the mining regions
of ihe West, and notes with what
unanimity they predict that the
ptT.-ent will be a great and
profitable year in mining, it
wmild seem to be the one marvelous year of all history, when
mother earth was about to pour
forth her precious treasures with a
bounteous and unstinted hand, observes the Clancey Miner. Not one
has a gloomy prediction, but all
see the picture set in dazzling
frames of gold, silver and copper.
But some of u* who have read the
papers for years know that few of
them ever see a cloud without a
silver lining, and they all delight
in discounting the future in rain-
how hues.
To him who studies the influences of surroundings in shaping the
character of the people, there is
something interesting in the predictions of the gentlemen of the
press. Why is it that newspapers
in the agricultural districts are not
always predicting grent crops of
grain and fruits, and fat hogs and
There seems to be something in
in the atmosphere of a mining
camp that infests all its people with
the intoxication of the brightest
hopes; and it is for this reason,
probably, that the mining news
paper never sees disaster in the
future. To the average journal the
establishment of the most senseless
process mill means a prosperous
era for the camp, and the assay of
a rich specimen means a bonanza
for the owner. Repeated failures
apparently teach few lessons. The
fact that the other gray old years
which have left us bowed kown with
so much unfruitful or half unfruitful endeavor���wore bright tints and
promised so much on other June
days���have not saddened recollections or dulled enthusiasm.
But we believe there is more in
the situation that is encouraging
than there has heen in a long time.
That fruition will equal prediction
cannot be reasonably expected. But
the newspapers are evidently nearer
correct than they usually have been.
Production is increasing from an
increased number of mines, instead
of from a few bonanzas, and the
profits are better distributed than
usual. It seems that the camps
were characterized by more work
and less bluster than usual, and
that men are relying more on the
profit to be obtained in mining
than in selling. These are but the
croppings that mining is obtaining
its rightful position as a legitimate
occupation. The process fiends,
with new milling, smelting or concentrating appliances or patents,
are growing scarce and scarcer,
which is but another indication
that the mining world is acquiring
knowledge.     All   tnese  are  sure
signs of health and improvement,
and indicate the onward march in
the precious metal mining industry
that all must be glad to realize as

All the Windermere mines are
paying $3.50 for eight hours. Miners are scarce.
The Poormnil mine on Eagle
creek, four miles south of Nelson,
has heen sold to the Granite Mines
Limited, a hig English Corporation,
for $215,000. This is a free-milling
gold property. The mine will be
equipped with a 10-stamp mill.
Late information goes to show
that the ore in the 600-foot level of
the Republic is still surprising its
owners as well as the public in its
increasing richness. A sample was
taken across six feet of the ore in
the face of the drift and the result
was $2,553 in gold per ton.
" It is a fact not generally known,
says the Journal-Miner, hut a fact
all the same, that a proposition to
purchase the United States Verde
mine at. $100,000,000 was recently
refused. The deepest workings of
the mine are now only 700 feet,
while recent explorations with a
diamond drill were made to a depth
of 2,000 feet, showing a continuation of the ore body to that depth.
Last week it was reported at
Baker City that the Red Boy mine
in the Sumpter district had been
sold to English capitalists for $3,-
000,000. This story is denied by
the Baker City Republican, which
says: It can be positively stated
that the Red Boy has not been sold.
Godfrey and Taber are miners���
successful miners. They like their
business and own the finest developed property in America���the Red
Boy. They have plenty of money.
There are now, without sinking on
the ledge, blocked out in the Red
Bov over $5,000,000 of ore. They
probably could get $3,000,000 for
the mine, but prefer to keep the
whole $5,000,000 which they are
taking out of the ground as rapidly
as they desire.
Good Looking Ore.
Mr.W.B. Townsend got in a sack
of samples of quartz from the
Burnt Basin, yesterday, from the
Kitty Aldine group, adjoinii.g the
Solid Gold. No assays have yet
been made, but the ore cannot be
distinguished from the high-grade
ore of the Mother Lode. There are
three ledges running parallel
through the three claims. Two of
these carry free gold and the third
is galena. The ore will be assayed
this week and it is thought it will
run high.���Rossland Miner.
