Array THE CASCADE RECORD
Published In the Interests of the Boundary and Christina Lake  Mining Districts
Vol. I.
CASCADE, B. C, SEPTEMBER 23, 1899.
No. 46.
REGULAR TRAINS RUNNING
C P. R. Construction Department Now
in Charge of New Railway.
OVER 75 ON FIRST BOUNDARY TRAIN
Road as Par as Qraod Porks Is Inspected by
ft. B. Smith,' C. E., for the Provincial
Government.
Monday, as per schedule, the
6m regular passenger tram rolled
into Cascade and the Boundary
country, arriving hereon time, viz.,
at 13.52 o'clock, as the railway
time tables have ii. The train consisted of a passenger coach, a combination baggage and smoking car
and a locomotive, .Conductor Ed.
Chealey being in charge. Every
seat in the coach was occupied,
there being about 75 passengers
aboard. Among those on board
were Traveling Passenger Agent
Anderson, .and Freight Agent
Peters, of Nelson, together with our
own Jim Martin, M. P. P., of Rossland, and many traveling men.
The return trip was made the next
day, and train? have been running
on alternate days since, according
to the makeshift arrangements
provided.: "'���'-   fci'>':���-���'���''' "..���"
The train is called on the timetables second-class, because freight
cars are occasionally carried, but
the rates of fare are decidedly first-
class. From Cascade to Grand
Fork, 13 miles, the fare is $1 00; to
Gladstone, 15$ miles, $1.20; to
West Robson, 584 miles, $5.35.
This makes th�� present cost of
travelling from Cascade to Rossland or Nel-on, all rail, $7.05 and
$6.65, respectively. It should be
remembered, however, that while
the road is in the hands of the C.
P. ft., it is not yet under the operating department, but is run by
the construction department.
When it is completed through to
Midway and accepted, things will
doubtless he somewhat different.
The following is plainly printed
on passenger tariff*:
''Inasmuch as this line is not yet
open for operation, passengers are
only carried on trains for their own
convenience, and at their own risk,
and ihe company will not he liable
in respect of any damage which
mav happen to the person or property of any passenger."
Provincial Authorities Inspect.
Last week the line as far as
Grand Forks was gone over by
Dominion Inspector Fellows. This
week the same tactics were gone
through with on behalf of the
provincial authorities by H. B.
Smith, C. E., of Rossland. Mr.
Smith was accompanied hy Chief
Assistant Engineer J. G. Sullivan
and Engineer Dennis, who is with
the tracklayers. The trip was
madeona hand oar, which was,
of course propelled by main
strength and awkwardness���by
whom does not yet appear.
The gentlemen  reached  Grand
Forks Wednesday night, and returned the following day on the
passenger train. Every part of
the road, including bridges,and
trestles was carefully inspected,
and a* far as learned found to be
in the best of condition. As the
C. P. R. iB to receive a subsidy of
$4,000 per mile from the province,
this inspection was needful as well
as that of the Dominion government.
Rumbles Prom the Ralls.
Dick and Mrs. Porter are spending a few days in Spokane.
Jack Stewart and wife left on
this morning's train for a week's
trip to Vancouver.
Tonight the track will be over
the Fisherman creek bridge, eight
miles either way to Eholt or Grand
Forks.
Thursday the ghost began its
monthly walk on the construction,
and Paymaster Woodman went
first to Greenwood.
Material is now here for the two
150-foot spans for the 1,600-foot
bridge over Kettle river at Cascade,
and work will commence at once.
If all goes well, the steel should
be laid into Greenwood between
October 5th and 10th. That is the
opinion of Jack Stewart, and no
man knows Better.
On the west end 1061 feet have
been bored in the Bull Dog tunnel
near Brooklyn, up to last Monday,
and nn the east end 828 feet. The
exact length of the tunnel will he
2.988 feet.
POISONED AT THE FORKS
George H. Weed, Formerly of Cascade,
Died Suddenly.
Was Employed as a Carpenter on the Smelter
-Pott Mortem Adjourned Till Monday
-Has Relatives In Wisconsin.
A mysterious case of poisoning
occurred a few days since at Grand
Forks, by which a man named
George H. Weed, a carpenter employed at the smelter, lost his life.
Constable Dinsmore being absent, Constable Darraugh was
called to take charge of the case
late last week and spent several
days in Grand Forks. The man
died suddenly, and the authorities
thinking everything was not ��as it
should be, caused an inquest and a
post mortem examination by Dr.
Westwood to he held, when unmistakable evidences of poisoning
were found. The inquest was adjourned to meet again next Monday.
Weed was employed on one of
the bridge gangs, and for a time
worked in that capacity at Cascade.
For a while he had been employed
at Grand Forks as a carpenter, up
to the time of his death. His sisters, Eddie Booton- and Hattie
Roach live in Cedar Falls, Wisconsin. As yet it is impossible ��� to
state whether the poisoning was
accidental or otherwise.
In Christina's Mines
A Number of Promlslni Properties Will be Worked All Winter.
A number of claims directly on
Christina lake are being advantageously worked this year, with
results that are highly satisfactory
to their owners.
About two miles from the upper
end of the lake, on the west side, is
the West End, owned by J. F.
Farrin, Boyd and Cameron, of
Rossland. This property has been
steadily worked all summer, and
now has a 40-foot incline shaft.
The ore is gold-copper, and there
seems to be plenty of it, as there ie
shipping ore on the dump. When
this property was opened up it
showed seven feet of fine free milling ore, and average assays give
values of $28. It is the intention
to continue work all the fall, and
winter.
On the opposite side of the lake,
and almost at the water's edge, is
the Rainbow, owned by Frank
Moller, Fred Smart and John
Flank, of Rossland. Mr. Moller
worked all the spring on the property, and uncovered a fine four-foot
ledge of copper ore. Messrs. Smart
and Flank are now at work on the
property, and it is their intention
to keep it up all winter. The tunnel has been driven about 45 feet.
Chas. Sandner is pt work on a
trail up the east side of the lake
from English Point, so that supplies can be packed in when the
lake is not navigable, ft' will
prove a great convenience to those
operating in that section.
Shortest Route to Franklin Camp.
Mr. Sandner says that the new
Franklin camp, on the east fork of
the north fork of Kettle river,
which is coming to the. front this
summer, is only about 20 miles
from his cabin at the head of Christina lake. From Franklin camp
it is largely a down hill pull to the
lake, and with comparatively little
trouble a wagon mad could be constructed over the route. The only
other way of getting into the new
camp is hy way of Grand Forks,
from which place the distance is
65 miles. It can thus he seen that
when the new mining camp is
ready to send ore to market its
natural and most inexpensive outlet will be by way of Christina
lake.
Mr. Sandner will go over the
route shortly himself, and will then
be in a position to give more details in regard to it.
CHRISTINA MINERAL FLOAT.
Fred Grihi is working the Mascot again, just east of town, near
the railway.
Work is going on with the Agitator, across the river, adjoining
the townsite, and the claim has a
good showing.
Bookkeeper Palmer, of the B. C.
Store, is putting in his vacation
doing assessment work on the Ada
and Ariel claims in the Burnt Basin.
. Foreman Thompson has got a
good start on the No. 3 tunnel, on
the Mystery, in the Burnt Basin.
Development is also continuing on
the Ennismore, controlled by the
same parties.
H. McCutcheon, customs officer
at Greenwood, went up to the John
Bull, near Gladstone, this morning, in which he is largely interested. The tunnel is now in over
125 feet.
Five practical miners came over
from Rossland Tuesday and went
up to work on the Cannonball
group, thereby doubling up the
force. Two '.shifts will now be
worked and development continued
all winter.
This week Bowen & Van Cleve
purchased a half interest in the
New Year claim on Deep creek,
about three miles from Cascade.
It adjoins several good properties
that are being developed. Work
will be started on the New Year
next week.
BAIL REFUSED TO FIRE BUGS.
Cameron and Mullen Must Stay In Jail TBI the
Court Meets.
Cameron and Mullen, who were
sent to Kamloops jail a few days
since from Columbia by Justice
Rochussen, to await trial by the
county court, will not be released
on bail. They are charged with
complicity in the burning of the
Hotel Columbia on the night of the
17th of July. The case has attrct
ed wide attention, not only because
of the heinous natnre of thd crime,
but because it was openly whispered that some sensational disclosures
would be made at the preliminary
hearing, involving certain prominent individuals. So far, however,
the expected damaging testimony
has failed to put in an appearance.
The application for bail was argued Wednesday at Victoria, and
after due consideration by the
court was denied.
One James Stubhs is said to have
lit the match that set fire to the
pride of Columbia, and several papers have stated that he had been
placed in custody in Spokane. On
the best of authority, however, the
Record is assured that Stubhs is
not yet in the toils of the law, on
either side of the international line.
The trial of Cameron and Mullen will come up in due course, and
is expected tn take place at Vernon some time in October.
Ex-Mayor John A. Manley, of
Grand Forks, who was called to
Nelson, Wash., two weeks ago, is
said to he there still, attending to
mining business.
' J. T, Wilkinson, representing the
Vancouver Province,and familiarly
known as "Wings," was in Cascade
today. THE   CASCADE  RECORD*

The every-other-day passenger
schedule on the new railway, coupled with the nearly 8 cents per
mile charge, is driving a good deal
of business to the stages, which are

when the road iB built from Midway to Penticton���in the dim and
distant future.
W. W. Ragsdale, of Bossburg,
who won the foot races at the
Queen's birthday celebration in
Cascade, recently raced with P. G.
McLeod at Greenwood, 50 yards,
for $500 a side. The race was declared a draw.
It having been reported that the
new railway would not reach
Greenwood for months, the Greenwood Miner queried Chief Engineer
Tye, who replied that no stone
would be left unturned to complete
the entire line at the earliest possible date.
Alexander Robinson, M. A., Provincial Superintendent of Education, of Victoria, was in Cascade

THE CASCADE RECORD
Pushing Work oa the Big Dam.
Several days ago Foreman Simmons and men resumed work on the
300-foot dam which the Cascade
Water, Power and Light Co. is putting in juBt above the cascades of
the Kettle river. Continued rains,
however, forced a temporary suspension of work, owing to the high
water. Yesterday Mr. Simmons
started in once more, and will soon
have a force of 20 men building the
dnm some 35 feet higher than the
structure is at present. It is the
intention to crowd the work as fast
as possible till completed.
S. F. Quinlivan, who has the contract for getting out the rock for
tilling the cribs, expects to resume
operations in a few days, and will
have a force of 20 men in his eni-
1>W-	
Kicking Again at Nelson.
Yesterday's Nelson Miner Bays:
"Cascade has been kicking at the
alleged daily mail service supplied
to it by stage. For a time at least
the town will have three regular
deliveries a week. The mail will
now-go over the new Columbia &
Western extension line."
It is apparent that Cascade has
lots of sympathizers in its crusade
for a decent postal service. In the
same issue of the Miner in which
the above was printed appears a
strong, healthy, well-developed'and
doubtless well merited editoria
protest at the slip-shod service with
which Nelson is forced to get along
with in a postal way. The Miner
appropriately suggests that a new
inspector be provided if the present
incumbent cannot do better work.
flood Reports from North Basin.
Good report are coming in from
the North Basin, which is a new
mining section located north of the
Burnt Basin. Tom Kellar and
other well known prospectors have
been spending considerable time
this season looking over the fine
mineral showings there, and their
reports are of a decidedly roseate
hue. This will add another to the
promising camps of the Christina
lake section.
Ronert Wood, one of the fathers
of Geeeuwood, has been gazetted as
a justice of the p��are.
Frank Corte, the Brooklyn mail
carrier, has opened his hotel, half a
mile below the big tunnel.
D. J. Matht'son has sent in his
resignation as principal of the Cascade public school. He will be succeeded by J.ihn Simpson, who is
thoroughly qualified and holds a
first grade, class A, certificate.
Rev. J McCoy will visit Gladstone and the Bull Dog tunnel on
Tuesday and Wednesday and hold
services. At the tunnel four services will be held, to accommodate
tbe night-and day shifts at each
end of the big In.re.
The Grand Forks Water Power
and Light Co. expects to divert 15(-
000 inches of water from the north
fork of Kettle river, for electric
light purposes. The undertaking
has been submitted to the government authorities at Victoria.

GOVERNMENT AND OPPOSITION.
The government, according to
the figures of the opposition, who
seem to be keeping close watch,
and spending considerable time in
counting noses, is now slightly in
the minority. Rut apparently the
lieutenant governor could not or
would not see things as the opposition did, and does not call on
Premier Semlin to resign and for
the formation of a new ministry.
The opponents of the government
argue, and apparently with good
reason, that the Turner government was dismissed, last year when
it had a better fighting chance
than the present government. Mr.
Mclnnes, however, has thus far
failed to take that view of the situation.
. Mr. Cotton, on his recent trip to
points in Kootenay, professed to
think that all was serene and that,
Joseph Martin having resigned,
the trouble and discordant element
in the government ranks had been
done away with. This is so to a
certain extent, hut Mr. Martin and
the opposition are no small factor
yet.
On the other hand, there is still
an utter lack of organization in the
opposition. The Turner party, so
called, is dead and beyond recall,
and no Moses has yet appeared to
lead the people out of the wilderness into the promised land. While
there may be a slight majority
against the government, it has yet
to be proved that this majority
would hang together. If some of
the papers that are howling so
loudly for Mr. Mclnnes to dismiss
the Semlin cabinet, would spend
the same time in organizing a
strong opposition, the lieutenant-
governor would be much more
likely to take action before the
legislature meets on January 4th.
Spokane is the latest place to
get the smelter fever. It is to be
hoped that it will not be the kind
that Boh Ingersoll built there,
five years ago���one that did not
smelt.
"Our growing time" is the way
Eastern Canadian journals are
now speaking of the present era of
expansion in the Dominion. But
the next ten years cannot fail to
see vastly greater advances, espec
ially in British Columbia.
NOTE AND COMMENT.
Up to this writing, war has not
been declared in the Transvaal,
and the white winded dove is still
hovering around; but said dove
does not seem to be having an easy
time of it.
New rumors of the break of the
mining deadlock in the Slocan are
current each week, yet there is no
change, and some of the richest
mineral properties in the province
are still tied up.
Last week 1,200 men, represent-
ii.g $5,700,000,000 in money, met
and deliberated at Cleveland, Ohio,
under the title of the American
Bankers' Association. This is a
good sized pile for a few individuals
to control.
The granting of a pardon to Captain Alfred Dreyfus in France in a
measure undoes the wrong done a
man believed by nearly the whole
world to be innocent. It is a politic move on the part of the council of ministers.
Bruce White thinks a railway
will surely oe built between North-
port and Cascade. That is what
other far-sighted persons believe.
The rich properties of Pierre lake
and Deep and Flat creeks, will require and be given a railway outlet.
to either disprove the  charge  or
resign his portfolio. j
If the crowded cars on the first
regular passenger trains into the
Boundary are a fair index of' what
is to follow, we may soon expect to
see this section not exactly blossom as the rose, but assuming a
fore-front position in  the  provice.
Republic has had almost as
many railways built on paper as
the Boundary country had a couple of years since. It is confidently believed that Washington's great
mining camp will have a real, live
everyday railroad next year.
��� The Atlin Claim remarks that
"The unexcelled (?) mail facilities
given to Atlin district no doubt
will be continued throughout the
year 1899 " The mail service in
parts of the Dominion is a disgrace
to Canada.   We speak by the card.
The Greenwood Miner says that
"If the present pace keeps up
Greenwood will soon have hotels
to burn." It strikes us that is
just what has happened to about
four of them, but perhaps like
most new towns Greenwood is too
well blessed in regard to hotels.
Joseph Martin has accused Hon.
F. Carter- Cotton openly of falsifying the records of the cabinet. Mr.
Cotton does not reply to the
serious charge, which at least
should be denied if untrue. It is
not becoming for a minister of the
crown to stand in this equuivooal
light.   He owes it to the province
It is only just that no credence
be given to the countless rumors
in regard to connecting prominent,
persons in Grand Forks with the
burning of the Hotel Columbia, I
till the full evidence is heard. If
it turns out as some profess to
think, the law will take its course,
and it "grinds- exceeding small."
The real authors of the crime will
get their just dues.
SEVENTY ATTENDED THE FUNERAL
Of the two Men who Were Killed at The Big
Tunnel.
The remains of James Pease, the
foreman, and J. Gilbert, who were
killed by gas from blasting at the
Hull Dog tunnel, were brought to
Cascade last Saturday afternoon
for interment. Olaf Olson, in
charge of the tunnel work, with 70
men came also to attend the funeral, at which Rev. Joseph MiCoy
officiated.
The two men killed had heen
amo'ng-those longest on the work,
over nine months, and were warned
beforehand not to go into the tunnel as Boon as they did. Four
others succumbed to the fumes at
tbe same time, but were rescind in
time and came to after getting nut
into the fresh air. Pease and Gilbert weie Cornishmen, of middle
age, and the former is said to have
a family in the old country.
International Day at Spokane.
One of the big days at the exposition this year will be International day, October 10. Special
trains and special delegations are
coming from all portions of British
Columbia, and it is expected' that
there will be many thousands of
people from both sides of the border in Spokane on that day to exchange greetings. The boards of
trade of British Columbia are making special efforts to attend each
in a body. The following invitation has been sent out to all the
mayors, councils, boards of trade
and other organizations of British
Columbia:
Gentlemen: On behalf of the
management of tbe Spokane Industrial Exposition I have the honor
to invite your honorable body to
take part in the ceremonies now in
course of preparation for International day, Tuesday, October 10th,
pfox. It will be the ambition, not
only of our management, but of
the citizens of Spokane generally,
to make International day a memorable one. On behalf of the
board of control, I have the honor
to remain, very respectfully yours.

Bruce White oame in Monday,
in company with Blake Wilson, of
the Arm of P. Burns & Co., and
the two went to Pierre lake, where
they recently bonded the First
Thought group for $25,000. Mr.
White is much pleased with the
property and anticipates great
things from it. Substantial cabins
have been put up, a dozen men
employed, and it is on the program
to continue active development
work on the property all winter.
It appears as though there would
be considerable coming and going
between Pierre lake and Cascade,
now that the new railway is completed. Many properties in that
section are being worked, and some
are owned by perrons having in
terests in Kootenay and Yale.
This means that the properties are
most conveniently reached from
Cascade, the distance being'only
12 or 15 miles. Bruce White,
while, here this week, expressed
himself as confident that at no distant date a railway would undoubtedly be constructed between
Northport and Cascade, as there is
an immense tonnage to he obtained
from the mining properties on the
route. Then the ourveys, which
have already been quietly made,
show that satisfactory grades can
be obtained with but little trouble.
The building committee of the
Prppbvterian church met Monday
evening to consider the financial
status. In a general way it was
quite satisfactory, but the committee wish it understood that a
few more subscriptions���even of
small amounts���would enable them
to pay all hills for construction
promptly. Mr. McCoy will gladly
receive such subscriptions.
The sajje of the New Denver
Ledge has a pretty good conception
of a hero.   Here is his idea of him:
"After further deliberation upon
the subject, we are still of the impression that one of the noblest
works of creation is the man who
always pays the printer. When a
man throws down two plunks on
our marble-topped counter and
makes the declaration that he
wants this paper for a year, he immediately has pur admiration and
a receipt. In our eyes he is g
greater hero and more of a prince
than any of the titled personages
of Europe. None of them take this
paper. If they did ennui would
not be so prevalent in their ranks."
Many in the Boundary are making preparations to visit the Spokane exposition this year���not
only because railway fares on the
American roads will he cut in two,
hut because the exposition itself is
well worth a visit. The mineral
display alone will he thoroughly
representative and worth going a
long distance to see. There will he
any number of attractions at the
fair outside of the exhibits. Not
the least of these will be the Grand
Army Band, of 40 pieces, of Canton, Ohio, sometimes called President McKinley's hand, said to he a'
superb lot of musicians. This one
attraction will cost the management a cool $7,000. Spokane is
preparing; to entertain immense
crow's from October 3rd to 17th,
and the indications are that she
will not be disappointed.

and has struck four feet of solid
quartz.   Assays run $52 per  ton.
A Btrike i* reported from the
Norway' Mountain Gold Mining
Co.'s property, and free gold-has
been panned from a wide stringer
in a live foot shaft.
The crosscut in tbe Morrison,' in
Deadwood camp, at the depth *of
220 feet is 66 feet in ore7' ffffil has
not vet struck the hanging wall.
The values average $12 in gold,
and 3 per cent, in copper.
The tunnel on the Bonanza, on
Grenville mountain, near Gladstone, is in 36 feet, and is looking
well. Dr. Edward Bowes and
others,of Rossland, are theowners,
and Ed. Terzick is in charge of the
Work.
Railway graders have opened up
another fine ore body on the Oro
Denoro, in Summit damp. Tbe
main shaft is now down 185 feet,
and it is expected that ore shipments can commence as soon as
the spur reaches the property.
On the Pathfinder, on the north
fork of Kettle river, the tunnel in
in 142 feet and is in ore all the
way except 35 feet. A main double-compartment working shaft has
just been started, which is expected
to strike the ledge at a depth of
400 feet,
The Minnehaha, at Camp McKinney, is said to have the largest
boiler ever brought into that camp,
being 80 h-p. President Montgomery, of the company owning and
operating this property, has recently returned, to Toronto, well satisfied with the development.
In 63 days 12 golrt bricks, worth
$5,940 were turned out of the mill
of tbe Camp McKinney Mines,
Ltd., owning the Granite and Banner claims. This was done with a
5-stamp battery, the capacity of
which will be doubled shortly.
About 15.000 tons of $14.50 ore is
estimated to he in sight in the
mine.
Beaverton camp, up tbe west
fork of Kettle river, is attracting
considerable attention. One lead
on the Washington and Idaho
claims bas six feet of solid galena,
that averages $40, and . many assays run.hiuher Prominent mining men are taking considerable
interest in the camp.
One of the latest mining strikes
made by railway graders is on the
Snowshoe, in Greenwood camp,
where the workers on the spur cut
through a 70-foot vein of ore south
of the preeent shaft, which can be
traced 700 feet. It runs high in
gold and silver and is a rich chal-
eopyrite. It is the intention to
send samples to the Spokane Exposition.
Capitalists and mining men are
giving considerable attention to
Keremeos and Twenty Mile claims
in the Similkameen, where a number of. new and rich discoveries
have recently been made. Work
is being pushed on the Nickel
Plate, Ramshorn, Shamrock, Gol-
conda, Opulence, Elkhorn and a
number of others, many of which
will be worked all winter.
About 11,000 tons of ore are now
blocked out in the Jewel mine in
Long Lake camp and about 500
tons on tbe dump. Thus far over
1000 feet of shafts, drifts, upraises,
etc., have been done, and the property is expected to be put on a
dividend paying basis next year,
when the cyanide plant is in operation. It is owned by the Jewel
Gold Mines. Ltd., of London, England, with a capital of ��80,000.
Work haB been started on the
big Seattle claim, on the north
