THE CASCADE RECORD
Published In the Interests of the Boundary and Christina Lake  Mining Districts
Vol. I.
CASCADE, B. C, JULY 15, 1899.
No. 36.
MR. F. W. PETERS TALKS
Tells Why the New Freight Schedule is
So High.
SAYS THE C P. R. NOT TO BLAME
He Went Over the Line Himself, In Several
Different Ways, to Site Up the Track
Laying Situation.
Last Wednesday F. W. Peters,
assistant traffic agent of the C. P.
R. at Nelson, arrived in Cascade,
having made the trip from West
Robson over the new line of railway, as far as the track is laid, a
few miles this side of Gladstone.
He enjoyed a variety of modes of
traveling on the trip, including
riding on a work train, on the pilot
of a locomotive, on a flat car, on a
hand car, on * cay use, on a steamboat on Christina lake, and in a
buggy. But he finally arrived
safely in the Gateway City. En
route he enjoyed a refreshing dip
in the lake.
The object of this not very desirable trip was to see for himself
the condition of the road and how
soon the C. P..R. could jjegin.tn.de-
liver carload freight in Cascade.
This end he accomplished, and informs a Record man .that the powers that tie among the railway
builders still hold that, notwithstanding the great obstacles in
bridge building, the track should
he here on or about August 1st.
His own opinion was that it would
take a trifle longer.
Last week's publication of the
construction freight rates have
created no little interest among
Boundary shippers. A careful
study of them will show that the
C. P. R , in this construction traffic
on the new line, is getting all there
is in it. That is to say, West Rob-
eon and Bossburg are figured as
common points, and the rate from
the former is placed just low
enough to attempt to knock out
the freighters from Bossburg. On
any class under third, this may be
done; above that,  it  is  doubtful.
The carload rates to Cascade hy
rail, are: 1st class, 74c; 2nd class,
62c: 3rd class 50c; 4th, 38c; 5th,
34c; 6th, 31c; 7th, 26c; 8th and
9th, 21c; 10th, 19c; s 1 Is, 50c
each, unless fist class rate be higher.
When asked why these high
rater* prevailed, Mr. Peters stated
that it was the schedule agreed upon between the contractors and the
company, and was something over
which the C. P. R. did not have
exclusive control. He thought
they would prevail until the road,
or a section of it was turned over
to the company by the contractors.
It is believed there is a colored
gentleman concealed somewhere in
the pile of wood, aud it is probable
that a large share of Cascade
freight will come by the old route
for the present. Mr. Peters went
to the upper Boundary, and also
hopes to corral some of the tonnage
into Republic.
Developments of an exceedingly
interesting nature are looked for
almost any day by those who think
they understand the situation.
Cascade's Telephone Exchange.
The telephone exchange to be
installed in Cascade, is expected to
be started in the course of a week
or ten days. Forces of men are
now busy putting the new Columbia Co.'s line into Camp McKinney
and Rossland. The former is now
almost connected and the latter
will be shortly. Then the men
will be set at work installing exchanges in different cities.
J. B. Donald of the Columbia
Co., informs the Record that a
switchboard for 50 'phones will be
put in here, but at present only 25
drops will be attached, so that the
local 'phones can he used. Those
wishing 'phones should give Mr.
Cameron notice at once, so that
the necessary instruments can be
ordered.
George T. Curtis, formerly of
Cascade, is now manager of a
branch store recently opened by
the B. C. Syndicate at Gladstone.
Contractor Videen, while on the
way to .Gladstone, Monday, was
hurt by"hielforse stepping on' his
foot. He has charge of the grading for trie side track.
THROWN FROM A FLAT CAR
Bridge Contractor McArthur Sustains
Serious Injuries.
Among the Miners
ALMOST BURIED BY FALLING TIES
Accident Happened Between Gladstone and
Cascade���Sufferer Is a Member of tbe
���        Firm of Porter Brothers ft McArthur.
Alex McArthur, of the firm of
Porter Brothers & McArthur, who
are contractors for the bridge work
on the new branch of the Columbia
& Western railway, sustained injuries Wednesday afternoon that
at best will lay him up for some
time.
Mr. McArthur was at the front,
with the bridge gang, a few miles
this side of Gladstone, When the
accident occurred. He was riding
on a car of ties, the train moving
at the rate of 12 miles an hour,
when one of the side support sticks
broke, precipitating Mr. McArthur
to the ground, the heavy ties piling
up around and on him. He was
badly hurt about the head and
hips, and a physician was at once
sent for to Cascade, who responded
promptly.
HiH injuries are nerious, and the
physician advised that the patient
he not moved for the present. The
doctor thinks, however, that with
careful attention, Which he is receiving at Gladstone, he will pull
through. The chief danger is in
the shock to his nervous system.
During the past week, while no
remarkable strikes have been reported from the Christina lake
mining camps, the work of development in dozens of properties has
been going steadily forward, and
generally speaking very satisfactory progress has been made.
Mining men are well aware that a
few specks of gold, or a rich piece
of ore, does not necessarily make a
mine, per se, but that many dollars, as well us days, must be judiciously expended on even the most
promising properties to reach the
desired goal. Just this, kind of
steady, systematic development is
going on in several camps not far
from Cascade. That it will be
richly rewarded in due time, no
one familiar with the prevailing
conditions, will dispute.
In the Burnt Basin the scene of
activity continues. Work on the
Mystery group goes on with unabated vigor, under Supt. Little-
John, and the owners of the property are more than pleased with the
outlook,
Mr. Littlejohn also has charge of
the wrtrk on the Ennismore, where
fieis slinking a Shaft on an 8-foot
ledge of auriferous quartz, which
assays $16 to $103 in gold.
The Mother Lode is looking better with every day's work. The
son of T. Mayne Daly, one of the
owners, and Mike Shick went up
to the property of Tuesday. Manager Alexander, at the bottom of a
24-foot shaft, found a vein of black
sulphurets and quartz nearly 15
feet' wide, between well defined
walls. Remarkable assays were
obtained from this rich stuff, some
of them running as high as $16,000
to the ton. In sinking it was
found that the ledge was widening
and giving increased values with
depth. Surface work on the Daly,
Base Ore and Ajax, belonging to
the same group, has uncovered
other valuable ledges of great size,
which give high assays. The
properties of the group are being
crown granted, substantial buildings have been erected, and 'preparations generally are being made
to work this property on a more
extensive scale. It will undoubtedly make a great mine.
Thomas G. Elgie, who recently
bonded the Chamberlain, on McRae creek, from Frank Hutchinson, went to Rossland this week,
firm in his conviction that he also
has one of the greatest properties
in this section. The claim thus
far has heen developed by a vertical shaft sunk to a depth of nearly
20 feet. In this i-haft was found a
vein of sylvanite ore. a mineral
rarely met with, but which i% exceedingly valuable. It is a tellur-
ide of gold and silver, of a steel
grey, silver-white oi brass-yellow
color. Ore of this character has
been found at Cripple Creek. Colorado, and was the making of some
of the best mines in that camp,
which is now producing $1,500,000
in gold every month. As stated
before in the Record, picked samples of Chamberloin ore pave 11
ounces of gold and 15 ��unces of
silver, or $229 per ion. An average assay, runs $22. Mr. Elgie
will keep right on with his development.
Recent assays fn m the Pay Ore,
on the north fork of Kettle river,
gave $168 in gold. "A new conUact
to extend the 70-foot tunnel has
been let.
The Seuforth claim of the Billiard group, on Norway mcuntirin
has a 40-foot l��dj.e, which hai Uiti
reached by a S5-f.>ot tunnel. It is
owned by Wm. He oper ai.d partner.
The 40-horse power loiler and
engine were installed this w��ck at
the Snowshoe mine in Gifenwocd
camp. The shaft is down 180 feet,
and the C. P. R. spur, under construction, croi-ses the propeily.
tn the 23-foot crosscut on the
100-foot shaft, on the Pathfinder,
north fork of Kettle river, 12 feet
'of shipping ore have been neount-
ered. Values run from $12 to $28.
A 5-drilI air compressor will he
installed as soon as the new railway is completed.
Stephen Brailo, one of the owners of the Cascade, on Granville
mountain, is about to resume
operations on the Bonanza group,
adjoining the Cascade group. Ore
of the ledges has been stripped for
a distance of 15 feet and another
10 feet. A shaft will be sunk at
once. There is considerable work
going on in this faction, which if
close to Gladstone.
John A. Coryell, of Grand Forks,
has issued a new map of Christina
lake mining camps, which is c< m-
plete in every particular. The
new map was prepared with great
care, and shows the claims located
on Castle and Shamrock mountains, on McRae creek, in the .
Burnt basin and on the streams
tributary to Christina lake. It
will he indispensable to the large
number of mining men interested
in these vari< us districts..

ANOTHER EFFECT OF THE KICK.
Last year, just previous to- the
provincial election, the Turner
government chopped off the Boundary creek section and added it to
Rossland riding or electoral'district. In several ways, this has
been a detriment to this section, as
has previously been pointed out
by the Record, and new evidence
of it crops up.
Last week's issue of tbe British
Culumoia Gazette contains the
names of the various sheriffs in the
province and the limits of their
jurisdictions. One paragraph is
as follows: ��� ���
County of Yale���Sheriff! Afthur
Gore Pemberton; postoftice address,
Kamloops. Limits of County���
The Kamloopj, Nico'hyLit'kef,Okanagan and Rock Creek pollfng divisions of Yale electoral district.
Another,is as follows:
County of Kootenay���Sheriff,
Samuel Parker Tuck; postoffice
address, Nelson. Limits of Jurisdiction: The Slocan riding of
West Kootenay, the Nelson riding
of West Kootenay, that portion of
the Rossland riding of West Kootenay which is within the county of
Kootenay, and the Smith riding of
East Kootenay'as defined by the
Redistribution act, 1898.
By which it will lie noticed that
the Boundary country or eastern
part of tbe old Yale district, is left
out entirely so far as the services
of a sheriff go. Not tint this section is likely to reed one to any
appreciable extent, but at the same
time we may require one.
Tbe Semlin government has been
in many respects a series of blunders, but when we had heen kicked
out of one riding by the old government, and not really taken into
the fold of another riding, it only
accentuates our position to have
the force of the kick illustrated in
the way here stated. If thib is
merely an oversight, it should be
remedied at once.
PROFITS IN LOW QRADE ORES,
Low grade ores ���those that yield
less than $10 per ton���are, as a
rule, not sought after by the average prospector, aud yet it is a fact
thet the best paying mines in the
world are today getting their
profits from ore that runs under
$10. A few examples will prove
the truth of this assertion.
The Tread well mine, on Douglas
Island, Alaska, with 800 stamps] to be single aid double handed
treats ore at a cost of $1.21 per ton. j teams, six of c*ach to enter, each
The Homestake. in Smith Dakota, | team to pay an entrance fee id
500 stamps', treats ore at a cost of ,$100. That is to say. of the $2,-
$1.40 per ton. In the Transvaal, 000 to be distributed, tbe contest-
South Africa, three leading mines ants will put in $1,200, leaving
���the   Crown  Deep.    Geldenbiiib |$800 tn lie added-by the fair mini-
2000 lbs.
���OF-
Deep and Rose Deep, with from
100 to 150 stamps, treat each $10
ore at a cost of from $4.88 to $6.42
per ton. All of these properties
are exceedingly profitable undertakings, and in one of them, the
Crown Deep, ��1 shares are quoted
at ��17 15s. in London.
These mines are profitable because they are worked on a large
scale. On no other baRis could
they be made to pay dividends. In
several instances they are operated
under the greatest difficulties and
at great expense. The cosf. of running 50 stamps is practically no
more than 500, when the machinery is once installed and started.
It is the quantity and not the
quality that is tbe factor,in profit
sharing. In the Boundary there
are almost numberless low.grade
properties with gigantic ledges���
not all, but a large majority.: It
goes without saying, then, that the
ores must be treated practically on
the ground���that is,, without a
long railway haul���and at a, low
rate. Careful average assays show
that $10 ores predominate. In
these ores can be freighted and
smelted for $5 or $6 per ton���and
we believe when the far sighted
smelting scheme of the C. P. R. is
worked out, it will be done'f|jr even
less���there will be a hawlsonie
profit left for the mine owner.
The best smelter site in the entire district must be chosen for
such extensive works as will be required���nothing less will do. This
has been done, and Cascade iB that
site. It is written in the book of
fate that one of tbe largest smelting industries in America will be

DOWN THE KETTLE RIVER.
Venturesome Trio Start. From Cascade to
the Mouth.
Last Monday trjree men started
on a trip that few persons would
care to undertake, viz., a trip, by
boat down the Kettle river to its.
junction with theColiirnbia. Those
who are most familiar witV this
turbulent .stream and its Wicked
eddies, urlseen whirlpools i��td dangerous rapids, consider it a /foolhardy undertaking.
' The trio consisted of A. M. Bift-
ton; his son Wm. Button and Ira
Ishnm, all of whimi are from Michigan and have until recently been
hi the^mploy of Lynch .A Earle
at the Cascade sawmill. Their
plan was to row against the current, so a's not to travel too-fast in
unknown waters/ At the railway
bridge, east of town, this scheme
had to be reversed to pass the
piles in safety.
Nb word has been received from
the voyagers at' this writing, but
their friends in Cascade hope they
have by this time succeeded in
their perilous undertaking.

THE CASCADE RECORD
BY THE WAYSIDE
itiWMtiuutinutiwititimttiwst
The strawberry social held last
evening by the ladies of the Presbyterian church was a pleasant
gathering of the town folk. Financially it was also a success, as
$63 was realized. The tables were
tastefully arranged and decorated,
and the ladies and those assisting
them are deserving of all praise
for the successful outcome of the
event. The program rendered was
also a pleasant part of the evening's enjoyment, those who assisted
being Mesdames Rochussen, Bremner, Revs. Wallace and McCoy,
and Messrs. Stocker, Good, Blanchard and Willcox. The proceeds
will go towards the new church
building, work on which iB expected to begin next week.
The force of surveyors who have
been running lines for the pole
lines for the Cascade Water Power
Co., from Wellington camp to Cas-
aade, are now camped between here
end the Forks, and will soon have
their work completed. The water
in Kettle river is going down fast,
and Supt. Anderson will soon be
able to resume on the big dam. It
is expected that work will he
started also on the flume, 600 feet
of which will he through solid rock,
and also on the power house and
electric lines.
Miss Marietta La Dell's enter-
taimnen last Wednesday evening,
at the Cascade Auditorium, was a
pronounced artistic success. Every
piece on the program was well ren
dered and splendidly received.
Miss La Dell is an elocutionist and
Delsartean delineator of wonderful ability, and her audience
thoroughly appreciated the evening's enjoyment. Mr. George K.
Stocker contributed most acceptably to the program by two vocal
solos. When Miss La Dell visits
Cascade again she will undoubtedly
have a full house, as she has made
many friends here.
Next Tuesday the Taxpayers'
Association will meet to select delegates to the boards of trade meeting at Rossland. Mining men are
requested to meet at the same time
to arrange for sending an exhibit
of ores to the Spokane Exposition.

THE CASCADE RECORD
Penalties for Infringing Eight-Hoiir Law,
The eight-hour clause of the enactment is contuinecl iu an act
passed last session, amending the
Inspection of Metalifernus Mines
Act of 1897. Section 13, governing the employment of boys in
mines was repealed hy the amending act, and the following section
inserted in its place: "No person
shall he employed underground in
any metalliferous mine for more
than eight hours in every twenty-
four hours."
The penalties attached to the
infringment of this particular
clause are the same as are attached
to the infringment of any other
provision of the original act of
1897, namely: $100 for the first
offense for owners, agents, managers or lessees, or $10 for other
offenders, with a further penalty
if the inspector has given written
notice of any such offence, of not
more than $100 and not less than
$10 for every day after such notice
as such offence continues to he committed, for owners, etc., end $5 for
every day for other persons.
Finished Pence Post Contract
B. Hildebraudt, with whom is associated G. L. Woodard, have broken camp near the summit, above
Gladstone, and completed their
fence post contract for the railway.
There were a dozen men in camp
for nearly a month and they got
out 16,000 cedar fence posts, five
inches or more in diameter and
eight leet long. This quantity
will he sufficient to fence nearly
a hundred miles of railway. On
account of snow, rain and hail the
camp has been anything hut pleasant, though they found plenty of
the right kind of timber. Messrs.
Hildebrandtand Woodard expect to
do some building on contract at��
Eholt shortly.
Prospectors Should Look Sharp.
One who claims to know says
that prospectors should look out
not only for veins of quartz when
in t-earch of gold, but also all other
rocks which have a vein like appearance, as dykes of porphyry,
etc., particlarly where found stained red, brown or yellow by iron
oxides, or green hy carbonate of
copper. A few years ago no one
thought of examining dykes in
search of gold, hut they are now
known to he very commonly gold
hearing and often contain free gold
as well as auriferous iron and
other nulphides.
Ladles' AM Society Formed.
The ladies of Cascade interested
in the work of the Presbyterian
church, have organized a Ladies'
Aid Society with the following
officers: .President, Mrs. D. McLeod; vice-president, Mrs. W. M.
Wolverton; secretary. Miss Cameron ; treasurer, Miss Harrow. The
society will hold meetings in alternate weeks, the next one being on
Thursday afternoon next. The
object of the society is to devise
wavs and means for assisting the
church in the many ways that
only energetic momen oan conceive
and carry through successfully.
To Relnbnrse Losers of Registered Letters.
A dispatch from Ottowa ��ays
that Postmaster General Mulock
has introduced a hill to amend
the post office act. The most important provision is one authorizing the payment of an indemnity
to the extent of $25 or lower for
lost registered letters. Provision
is also made for charging a fee in
this connection and the founding
of an insurance fund. The hill
also authorizes the transmission of
sample newspapers in the same
connection, as copies now sent to
bona-fide subscribers.
