CASCADE, B. C, JUNE 3, 1899.
No. 30.
Among the Miners
Now that the snow is nearly
gone out of the hills, development
work is beginning in earnest in all
directions, and more and larger
forces of men are being constantly
put to work on many of the most
promising properties in the surrounding hills. Baker and Suther
land creeks are receiving a good
deal of attention, and of course
the McRae creek claims and those
of the Burnt Basin are coming to
the front in good shape.
Reports from the Burnt Basin
continue to he of a most encouraging character, and development is.
in nearly every instance, showing
richer and hetter leads with depth.
A big find is reported to have been
made in the south end of the
Basin hy F. Fritz, Jas. Curran and
S. W. Seed, which is said to contain plenty of native copper, with
gold and silver. It is called the
Big Ledge, and seems well named,
as the lead is very large and well
defined. They are now sinking on
the ledge, which shows better with
each shot put in. The ground has
been camped on and travelled over
since 1896.
- John Hamill, of Armstrong. B.
O, and Donald Graham, M. P.,
arrived in the Basin last week, and
are having the Barrow, which .they
own, surveyed. This is one.of the
claims which was reported bonded
a couple of weeks since for $20,000,
of which 15 per cent, was paid
The Pleasures of Hope claim, of
which T. G. Elgie is the manager,
is said to be in solid ore, and those
interested are more than satisfied
with the i suit of the development
thus far.
Gold ( nissioner Kirkup has
dispatcher 'orce of 20 men to
the trail between Norway mountain
and Burnt Basin, which is to he
built at once. It is expected that
it will be completed in the course
of three weeks or less.
The Jackstraw, located 1500 feet
west of Mike Shick's Mother Lode,
in. the Burnt Bacin has a continuous quartz ledge from the No.
1 to the No. 2 post. The ore carries
considerable free gold. Messrs.
Hunter and Sharp are the owners
snd are now doing development.
Wm. Forrest visited Gladstone
on Monday, and while there did a
little panning for placer gold in
Canyon creek, which runs through
the town. He was rewarded by
finding 12 or 15 colors in the pan.
Developing Christina Lake Claims.
S. R. Reid who returned from a
prospecting trip through central
Idaho last week, now has a force of
men at work on the Golden Key
group which is located on the north
fork of Sutherland creek, about
four miles from the Columbia &
Western railway. The group consists cf three claims, the Golden
Kev, Pilot-Beacon, nnd Peacock,
and is owned by G. L. Curtis and
S. R. Reid, of Cascade, and Charles
Knight, of Stanstead, Quebec.
A 2J mile trail, branching off from
the Elmore trail, has been completed and interesting developments are expected now that work
is progressing. A strong well defined iron capped lead, a contact
on granite and porphyry, traverses
the entire claims, ami in known to
continue through the property on
the opposite side of the mountain,
owned by Messrs. Cameron, Dar-
row, Good and Forrest.
J. E. Mills and W. I. Paterson,
of Rossland, are sinking a shaft on
the Prudential, a promising Shamrock mountain claim. It is one of
a group of four owned by these
gentlemen jointly with S. R. and
E. L. Reid. The lead upon which
they are now working extends
across the property of the Belcher
Mining Company, the Corydon
and Elmore, and is traceable for
two miles. No assays have been
made from this lead yet, but tests
will be made, shortly. The vein
is about five feet wide and improves
in appearance with depth.
Dave Good iB camped on Shamrock mountain and it is reported
that the lead is showing up fine
on the Crescent, on which he is doing development work.
Walter Staples is working on
the Bryant claim, two miles from
the Cove on McRae creek.
' Peon and Gay are working the
Alphonse on Shamrock mountain.
The showing on this claim is considered to be quite equal to the
now famous Elmore. They are
sinking on an eight f.n��t body of
ore, lying between perfect walls,
The results of the assays have not
been made public, but the ore appears to carry more copper than
any of the other claims in the immediate vicinity.
J. P. Brooks and Alex. Carson
came into town this week from the
Pilot Knob, on McRae creek about
a mile from the cove. They
brought in some fine specimens of
ore from the bottom of the shaft,
and Brooks has returned to work.
The ore carries a large percentage
of lead and silver, alt<o gold and
copper, in all about $27. W. M.
Wolverton and J. P. Brooks are
the owners. The ledge is 50 feet
wide on the surface.
Frank Hutchinson is still sinking on the shaft on the Chamberlain on McRae creek, from which
he got the $229 assay a couple of
weeks ago.
Working tbe Pontitex.
John H. Inkster, the Rossland
mining expert, was in town this
week superintending the commencement of active development
on the property of the Pontifex
Gold Mining Company of Spokane.
This group of claims lies on Huckleberry mountain, about four miles
from Cascade It is a free milling
proposition   and promises to be a
producer. The ledges are easily
traceable, one being a porphyretic
quartz, and the other solid homogeneous quartz. The former has
given good values ranging from
traces to $50. The men are doing
systematic prospecting now, by
making a series of cross-cuts in
order to locate the payetreak.
S. W. Bear is finishing up his
hotel building opposite the B. C.
Now is the time to plant your
garden, You can get a full stock
of seeds from the B. C. Syndicate
A. Chandler, president of the
Cascade Development Co., starts
for the east tomorrow called by
the illness of his son.
Fred Brown, of the Columbia
hotel at Columbia, who formerly
conducted a cigar store in Cascade,
died on Thursday last of Bright's
Next Monday a meeting of.rate
pavers at the townsite office is requested, to confirm ihe selection of
a new school site by the school
Dick Porter came in last night
from the end of the track, two
miles this side of Porcupine. In
10 days the track is expected to
reach Gladstone.
Eholt now has a hotel, two
store?, two barber shoj,is and a
restaurant. Not a lot has heen
sold yet.and probably will not be
for several weeks.
The Redfield & Wilson saw mill
at Moody ville, Christina lake, was
moved this week to a point on the
North Fork, about three miles
above Grand Forks.
Chief License Inspector Darraugh
has received 45 applications so far,
and they are coming in by every
mail. The board will meet in
Cascade on June 15th at 11 a.m.
Ferry County Capital Was Burned Down
This Morning.
Word was received by telephone
this morning that the town of Republic was burned down early
today, and that nearly the entire
business portion of this famous
camp is now in a��hes.
The fire started in the Speigle
block rn Clark avenue, at 6:30
a.m., and spread with great rapidity
taking in the entire business part
of the town. In a short time it
was in ashes, scarcely a building
was saved, with the exception of
the telephone office. The burned
district would take the hank, opera
house, one or two of the weekly
papers and the majority of general
stores and saloons.
As there was no water works,
there could be but little insurance
and the loss will doubtless fall
heavily on those burned out..
As the telephone wires were so
busy, it was impossible to obtain
details further than the above.
Gateway City's Namesake Was Bonded
It Assays $25.17 In Gold on nhe Surface, aid
$109.40 at a Depth of 40 Feet-Will be
Ed. Terzick came in from Granville mountain this week, a couple
of miles from Gladstone, and reports a rich strike on the Cascade
claim. The property is owned by
Mr. Terzick, S. J. Brailo and J.
D. Reagh, and was the first location on the mountain. It is developed by a 40-foot shaft on the No.
1 lead, which has a four foot ledge.
The bottom is all a white, rich
looking honey-combed quartz,
from which assays of $109 in gold
were obtained; at 15 feet the ore
save $45.60 and on the surface
$25.17 in gold values, thus improving fast with depth. On the No. 2
lead, 40 feet from No. 1, only open
cuts have been made thus far, with
good results.
The Cascade has been bonded to
J. B. Ferguson, a capitalist from
Vancouver, who will meet Mr. Terzick in this city in a few days to
arrange for fuvther development.
It cost 21 cents per pound to pack
in from Rossland the supplies so
far used in the course of development ��� making pretty expensive
bacon and beans.
Columbia Stage Company Once More bas
tbe Monopoly.
The International Flyer, the opposition stage line from Bossburg
to Grand Forks, which has been
in operation for a month or two,
has lieen taken over hy the Columbia Stage Co , who formerly had
the only line, and now have it once
more. With the line goes 38 head
of horses, wagons, buckboards,
harness, etc.
Fremont Rogers, manager of the
Columbia line, came in town from
the Folks last night, and confirmed
the news of the transfer, and stated
that he is now in sole charge of
both lines. It is the intention to
continue running the Flyer stage
as in the past, but the relay stations will he those of the Columbia
line, viz., Cascade, Hall's, and
Pete Pierre's.
It appears, from the statement
of Mr. Rogers that the Flyer people
came to the Columbia people with
a proposition to sell, and after
some conferences a price was agreed
upon, and the formal transfer took
place last Thursday. It remains
to he seen whether another opposition line will he started.
The boiler of the steamer Myrtle
B. has been, burned out, and Ben
Lavally went to Spokane this week

The Man Who Doesn't Advertise.
Breathes there a man with soul so dead
That to himself he hath not said,
1' My trade of late Is netting bad,
Til try another 10-Inch ad."
If such there be, go mark him well,
F.>r him no bank account shall swell-
No angel watch the golden stair
To welcome home a millionaire.
To suoh a man the noisy din
Of trnfllo may not enter In.
For bargain hunters by the score
Shall pass nor I eed his dingy door;
For tho' his sign is on the wall
And oi some barn-yard gate a scrawls
No people who have cash and sense
Go prancing round to read the fenoe.
The man who never asks for trade
By local line or ad displayed
Cares more for rest than worldly gain
And patronage but gives htm pain;
Tread lightly, friends, let no rude sound
Disturb hia solitude profound.
Here let him live in calm repose
Unsought except by men he owes.
And when he dies, go plant him deep
That nanght may break his dreamless sleep,
Where no rude clamor may dispel
The quiet that he love* so well,
And that tbe world may know its loss
Place on his grave a wreath of most
And on thr stone above, "Here lies
A chump who wouldn't advertise."

Applicants When Renewing can Send Direct
to Chief of Police Hussey.
The following circular has been
issued by Attorney-General Martin,
to holders of liquor licences in districts outside of municipalities,
which Chief License Inspector
Darraugh says applies only to
licences that expire between July
15th and Decern her 15th next.
"Your attention is called to the
provisions of Chapter 39 of the
Acts of last session, the "Liquor
Licence Act, 1899," making new
provisions with regard to liquor
licenses. When your license expires, you may, if you prefer, get
from Mr. F. S. Hussey, superintendent of provincial police, Victoria, without advertisement and
without inspection, a renewal
license expiring on the 31st day of
December next. The $10 fee provided by the act will not be charged
for this license, and you will only
be charged a proportionate license
fee. It will be necessary, however,
for you to apply under the provisions of the said act to the board of
license commissioners which will
meet on the 15th of December next,
for a new license, commencing on
the 1st day of January next. If
you prefer, you may at once apply
for a new license, commencing on
the 1st day ��f July next, and if
this latter course is adopted a proportionate part of the fee paid for
your present license will he refunded von."
Over  400  New   Commissions   have   been
In last week's British Columbia
Gazette appears the official notice
of the Lieutenant-Governor that
all appointments of justices of the
peace heretofore made, are rescinded, to take effect on June 30th.
In the same issue also appears the
names of 401 appointments as
justices of the peace. The list includes many of the olsj names, and
there are some new ones.
For Cascade the new J. P.'s are
Messrs. Paul Rochussen, George C.
Rose and Donald John Matheson.
In Gladstone the names of William
Forest and Anens Cameron are
given. Mr. Matheson's name was
recommended to the provincial gov
ernment for appointment by the
Cascade Taxpayers Association
some months ago.
Valne of Newspaper Advertising.
The value of newspaper advertising has received several striking
illustrations in New York City during the last year. An observer
notes the fact that three or four
dry goods houses that went into
liquidation there last winter were
the only ones of the greater department stores that never advertised
in the newspapers. On the other
hand the great advertisers are all
experiencing great prosperity, one
of them whose failure was predicted
having made $600,000 and admitting that his success was due to
newspaper advertisments in which
he invested heavily.
In 1862 there were four twenty-
dollar gold pieces coined at the
mint which then existed at New
Westminister. One of these is in
the hands of the B. G. treasury, Mr.
Helmcken, of Victoria, holds another, and a third is now in possession of J. C.Tunstall, of Vernon;
the whereabouts of the^ourth coin
is unknown. To numismatists
these coins are of much interest,
and are naturally increasing in
value as time passes.

Terrorised the Hamlet ol Russell tor Some
Three hoars.
Wednesday evening the little
town of Russell was the .scene of a
fracas that will not soon be forgotten. Two loose women, "ScrapIron
Minnie," [Minnie Popple] and
"Rough-Lock Nell," while inebriated, went into the general store of
G. P. Persons and acted and talked
so outrageously that Mr. Persons
shut them out. This only infuriated the women, who first hurled
a grindstone through the front
window, which demolished everything in it..path. They then secured axes from the woodpile and
broke all the remaining windows
in the house and some of the doors,
Mrs. Persons and her sister being
if raid of their lives. The windows
of CrandalPs feed store were treated
the same way, and Mr. Crandall
showed the women the wrong end
of a gun.
They came to Cascade after some
three hours of this sort of fun, and
Officer Darraugh soon had them
xafe in jail. In the meantime the
authorities at Bossburg were notified of the incipient riot at Russell,
and Deputy Sheriff Terry was dispatched to the scene of hostilities,
with an assistant, arriving here at
3 a. m. Thursday. Officer Darraugh persuaded the gay damsel?
to go across the line again, and
they fell into the hands of the
Stevens county officers, were handcuffed and taken to Bossburg on
the first stage. As Russell is in
Ferry county, they will probably
be tried at Republic, where Sheriff
Wiseman is the chief officer. It
appears more than likely that these
females with the suggestive sobri
quets will be given ample time to
think over at least one of their recent escapades.
Mr. Persons, in the personal
encounter, had two knuckles broken, and one of the women cut her
hand in breaking one of the windows.     	
More than one family has already

One of the evils of this growing
eouthern British Columbia country
is the habit, which has become
almost a mania, of platting' town-
sites every few miles. This is not
only doti�� along the line of projected {railways, but even in remote
districts, where there are a few
mineral prospects, will be found
the townsite boomer, plying his
trade, sometimes in more or less
questionable ways. In the Boundary country, for instance, each new
town, when first started on its
troubled existence, is announced as
"another Rossland," and the announcements are so ingeniously
/worded as to convey to the tender-
loot, a couple of thousand miles
or so away, the idea that the sun
rises and sets, as it were, largely
for th* benefit of that town alone.
As a result of this mania, there
are so many places in the district,
that when a stranger travels
through them all, and listens
patiently to the praises each town-
site owner bestows upon his own
property, he is puzzled as to the
best, or even second or third best,
place in which to locate or invest,
All have "great natural advantages ;" all are "surrounded by rich
mines," and all are claimed to he
railroad centres and distributing
points���that is, according to the
promoters. Consequently, all
through the mining districts of
this section there are a multitude
of little towns, few of which amount
to much, and every week something
new in this line is sprung on an
unsuspecting public.
The same amount of capital and
energy, if concentrated on a few
places, would build up thriving
communities, in which all would
prosper to a greater degree. As it
is, it will, as usual, be a survival
of the fittest. But the mania will
continue, and it will be still more
difficult to pick out places of merit
and permanency.
The legislature saw fit to pass
the act, limiting the underground
miner to eight hours of work at a
time. Why they did not do as
much for the hard-worked newspaper man is not clear, hut they
overlooked it, at any rate.   It is of
little use at this time to discuss
whether the law was called for or
not; it is here and will be enforced
after June 12th.
The mine-owners, however, have
declared in the Kootenays, with a
few exceptions, that they will not
pay $3.50, the former scale for two
hours less work, but are willing to
give $3.00. This went into effect
on the 1st instant, and many
miners simply refuse to accept it,
and are leaving the country in
Thus it apears that a law apparently intended to benefit the
working miner, is having the reverse effect, as the majority were
satisfied with things as they were,
and are anything but satisfied
with the present outlook. It will
indeed be unfortunate for the industry if a prolonged struggle can
he avoided between the miners and
mine owners, but apparently the
end is far off. It is difficult to see
where the usefulness of such legislation comes in.
Many are wondering whether
this is the last of winter or the first

are a god-send to the dailies published at the coast. Otherwise they
would have no source from which
to filch fresh mining news���the

If there are any Cascaders who
have not yet leen upon the waters

near to nature's heart.
The  Rossland  Miner   is to he
commended for agitating the build
ing of five miles of trail, to connect
the Norway mountain trail with
Gladstone. Whatever helps the
development of the district helps
the great majority in it. The government should see to it that this
trail is built at once, and probably
will do "o through Mr. Kirkup.
The proposed cut-off on the Dewdney trail, close to this city, by
which a couple of miles of detour
could be saved, should also be
built, and at once.

gome persons have an idea that
they know exactly how a newspaper should be run, and what should
and should not appear in it. This
is especially the case if they happen to he broken down preachers,!
doctors, lawyers or hotel-keepers.
They seem to think it is as simple;
and easy to please every one as it
is to read the paper after Wing
turned out in completed form.
If the publisher happens to say>
something, however, that does not
please these same pseudo know-it-
alls, then there is trouble ahead
for the luckless newspaper man���
that is, in someone's mind. As a
matter of fact, the quill driver will
usually consign such egotistical
individuals to���well, to a place
where there is no need for shovelling snow, and let it go at that.
' Enough has "been written arid
printed about the proposed Smelter,
which it is believed will be erected
sqmetyhere in Jh$vicinity of Grand
Forks, to" build several smelters.
There seems to be no doubt that
some sort of a smelter will be constructed thereabouts in due 'time,
but its exact location is yet to be
settled,. v(l As .nearly as can be ascer-
tatried,j no contracts have yet been
signed, but probably will be. Mr*
McLaren, of MbLaren Bros., owners
of the townsite of,.Carson, was .in
Cascade Thursday., and msde the
statement that Mr. Graves,had
bought the entire townsjte, and
had paid $5,000 in cash thereon
sometime since; that he had also
bought .the Spragget.t ������ and other
nearby.tracts, all of which are on
the main Kettle river, and not On
the north fork, where the smelter
site is supposed to have beeu selected. Taking it all in all, there is
sufficient schemeing being done to'
keep the residents '��� of the Forks
guessing; but that" the Granny
smelter will be established some-;
where in the vicinity seems to be
universally admitted..   : < ���       :j

tIn a country, where all the towns
are dependent on the stage lines
for transportation, the entire public is interested in any new move
that is made. The latest rumor is
to the effect that the Columbia
Stage Co., is making an effort to
buy out the new International
Flyer line, its opposition, which
has been making such inroads on
its business for the last month or
more. It is said to l>e the intention
of the Colutnhia people, if the deal
is n>nde( to nse the duplicate equipment acquired to operate a stage
line to Camp McKinney, where the
Columbia, people are interested in
mine's, and which point^.will not
be reached by the railway'��� at. least
for this year.", .,���
Of course, such a purchase would
also leave the Columbia again with-;
out competition on the Bossburg
route for the time being; but knowing ones do not believe the monopoly would be for long.' The Flyer,
which has just put on a second
stage, has Midoubtfdiy'been making good- money since it started,
and would roit sell put for a small
figure*;; It now carries all the ex*
press matter, having put up a

Bolt Slipped and Caused tbe Death of Pour!
Al 12:30 a. tn., May 20th four
men were killed in the War Eagle
mine at Uossland, by the skip dropping 350 feet.
Coroner Howes, Mining Inspector
McGregor and Gold Commissioner
Kirkup were present when the coroner's jury, several days later, gave
its verdict, which was as follows:
''1st. We find that the deceased
came to their death hy the skip
falling to the bottom of the shaft,
which was caused hy the slipping
of a bolt out of its position, and
that the machinery in question
was defective, inasmuch as safety
pins should have heen inserted in
.all the holts to protect the nuts of
said bolts.
"2nd. In view of the fact that
���certain defects took place previous
to the present accident we are of
the opinion that men should not
have heen permitted to ride on the
skips until such time that the
machinery was perfected beyond a
reasonable doubt.
"3rd. We are also of the opinion
that a daily report should be made
by the engineer-in-chief as to the
working order of the machinery,
and that this rule should be strictly enforced.
"4th We would also strongly
recommend that a certified mechanical and electrical engineer
should be appointed to examine
all mining machinery in operation.
"5th. We would further recommend that the government should
appoint several mining inspectors,
as in our opinion the duties imposed on the present one are greater
than he can perform with satisfaction, and it is further recommended
that a resident inspector should be
appointed at least for this important mining section.
"6th. That the practice of employing uncertified engineers for
technical positions of responsibility in the mines of this province,
which has heretofore prevailed, is
to he condemned, and that in
future the strictest rules should he
enforced, and that if the present
mining act be insufficient for this
purpose it he amended at the next
meeting of the legislature."
Hon. J. Fred Hume has agreed
to give the city a Union Jack 35
by 18 feet in size, says the Nelson
Tribune, but there is a string to
the offer as the flag is not to be
used until the city secures title to
the recreation grounds and erects
a suitable pole thereon.
Collector of Customs Sutherland,
of Midway, has lost; his job, and
Mr. Hayward, sub-collector at
Grand Porks, sent to take charge

Camp McKinney thu year.
The Stemwinder, in Fairview
camp, is improving daily. On tho

A recent mill test of Waterloo
[Camp McKinney] ore made at
Spokane, gave nearly $35 per ton,
which is considered very satisfactory.
The Madison group, in the
Slocan, owned hy J. C. Eaton,
formerly of the Whitewater mine,
has been sold to an English syndicate for $20,000.
It is said that A. Ross has struck
a solid body of chalcopyrite, mixed
with grey copper, on the Bismack,
near Niagara. This is one of the
claims cut hy the railway construction last fall.
The ore chute in the Cariboo,
Camp MoKenney, is increasing in
richness, and during the last cleanup several good sized nuggets, some
of them weighing half an ounce,
were taken from the battery by
Superintendent Keen.

Miner, a readable six-column paper, has come tp hand. It is published at the new town of Keller,
45 miles south of Republic. The
publisher is too modest to print
his name as such.

Development on the Standard

Queen of Sheha, in Deadwood
Camp, has stripped the lead and it
is believed they have the Mother
