THE CASCADE RECORD
Published in the Interests of the Boundary and Christina Lake  Mining Districts
Vol. I.
CASCADE, B. C, APRIL 22, 1899.
No. 24.
For the 24th of May
Cascade will do the celebration
act ihiw year in a way befitting its
location as the Gat* way City of
the Boundary country. That much
has been decided on.
As announced in last week's
Record a mass meeting took place
on Saturday evening, and a representative audience was pment.
Angus Cameron was chosen chairman, and a number of short addresses were made by those present, urging the celebration of the
Queen's birthday by Cascade's
citizens. After some discussion a
preliminary committee of arrangements was appointed. The meeting then adjourned, and at a meeting of this general committee on
Monday evening a finance committee of five was selected to proceed at once to raise the needed
funds, it being estimated that at
least $500 would be required. The
following officers were chosen :
President, Paul Rochussen ; secretary, W. B. Willcox : treasurer,
W. A. Milne The finance committee consists of the following
well known citizens : Messrs. C.
H. Thomas, Oscar Stenstrom, C. J.
Eckstorrn, V. Monnier and W. J.
Francis. This committee, as soon
as sufficient funds were subscribed
to guarantee the expense account
of the celebration, were authorized
to select the sub-committees to carry
out the details of the event.
Tuesday morning the finance
committee started in to secure
pledges from business men and
others interested. In almost every
instance there was no hesitation
and nearly every man in town of
any importance has his name
neatly subscribed on the list. Iu
a short time it seemed sure that
the amount wished for would be
raised, and it was raised as 'expected. The committee wishes to
state, however, that the expenses,
as outlined so far, will be somewhat heavier than anticipated,
ard any individuals who may
have been inadvertently overlooked,
dun find the subscription list at
Francis & Milne's store, opposite
the custom house. Anything more
subscribed will enable the amuse-:
nr.ent committee to hang up better
and more prizes for the various
sports to be held.
The finance committee held another meeting yesterday and
selected the various sub-committees
to have charge of the details. They
are as follows :
AMUSEMENT COMMITTEE.
W. H. Cooper, B. F. Woodman,
Sam Crowell, N. McLellan, Mr.
McKellar, Gus Smith, J. C. Shep-

Cumberland, Mr. Blanchard.
It will thus be noted that the
work is divided up in such a way
that there will be plenty of capable
and willing workers for each part
of the celebration.
Last Thursday, when tbe financial success of the celebration was
assured, the finance committee
decided to send a delegate to Grand
Forks to secure the co-operation of
the people of that city in the Cascade celebration, and make it a big
event for this entire section of the
country, Oscar Stenstrom was
chosen for this important duty,
and armed with the necessary
credentials, he went to the Forks.
He met Mayor Lloyd A. Manly,
the councilmen and many other
prominent citizens, and secured
from one and all their hearty
promise to visit Cascade on that
day and assist us in honoring the
Queen. There had been some talk
in Grand Forks of holding a celebration, but this has now been
declared off, and at some future
date, Cascade people will assist in
festivities at the Forks. Mr. SL'ten-
strotn's success was pleasing to the
financial committee, who have
pledged themselves, through the
other committees, to leave no stone
unturned to make the visitors from
the Forks and all other places in
the neighborhood thoroughly at
home.
Negotiations areahniit completed
for the services of the Bossburg
Brass Band of 12 pieces for the
entire day of tbe celebration, and
orchestra to play for the grand
closing ball in the evening. It
was hoped that the Grand Forks
band would be organized in time,
but the instruments have not yet
arrived.
SOME OF THE EVENTS.
Last evening the amusement
committee held an extended session
at the Hotel Cascade, to consider
the races and sports that would he
held. W. H. Cooper was chairman
and Chas. Bampfield secretary.
The following is an outline of some
of the events that are arranged
for:
Horse races, pony races, Indian
horse race, rock drilling contest,
100 yard dash, 220 yard dash,
boys' race, girls' race, three legged
race, sack race, fat man's race, egg
race, freighter's race, running long
jump, standing jump, running hop
step and jump, high jump, shot
putting and tug of war between
two selected teams.
The amusement committee will
hold another meeting this evening
at the Columbia hotel.
A good deal of interest is being
displayed in local base ball circles,
and a good game will doubtless be
put up A team of ball tossers
from Grand Forks and also one
from Bossburg aie talking of being
here on that day.
The rock drilling contest will be
one of the features of theoccasion,
the matter being in the hands of
experienced men. A prize of $100
will probably be hung up for this
event. Next week's Record will
contain a full list of the events and
the cash prizes for the winners in
each.
One important work of the advertising committee is the getting
out of mammoth posters. These
will probably be gotten and sent
out all over the district in the
course of a week's time, and will
be of such a nature as to attract
widespread attention.
IN AND AROUND CASCADE.
It is said that lots in the new
town of Eholt, at the summit, will
be on the market May 10th.
A trapper named O'Brien shot a
silver tip bear rear Peterson's, on
the Brooklyn wagon road, this
week.
J. A. McMaster, of the Columbia
hotel, returned yesterday from Ontario, where he has been for some
weeks.
A fire occurred in one of the
houses in the tenderloin on Thursday. A hole in the roof was the
chief damage.        '
Up to last night Constable Darraugh had collected revenue taxes
of $3 each from 78 persomvand he
is still gathering them in.
The force on the railway bridge
over Kettle river is to be increased
to 35 or 40 men at once. This
week there has been a shortage of
iron for drift bolts.
R. L. Moss, "the tonsorial artist
employed in G. Scott's barber shop,
left during the week to take a position with the Owl band, of Spokane. His place is filled by F. S.
Davis.
J S. Reed, who has been a valued
employee in the contractors' commissary department, left for Glyn-
don, Minn., last Tuesday, where he
will have charge of a general merchandise store.
Harvey Harris, the popular Cascade manager for P. Burns & Co.,
returned on Thursday from Idaho,
accompanied by Mrs: Harris. H.
Stoecke. in charge while Mr.Harris
was absent, has returned to Camp
McKinney.
Superintendent Wm. Anderson,
of the water power company, says
the water just above the big dam is
a trifle chilly at this season. He
ought to know, -as he fell in this
week���and pretty close to one of
the sluiceways, too--while doing
some work there.
D. C. CORBIN BACKS DOWN
Withdraws Application for
the Kettle River Charter
NEWS APPEARS TO BE AUTHENTIC
Corbin Was Advised that the Chance of His
Securing the Franchise Now Was Poor,
So He Decided to Quit.���Confirmed From
Rossland.
For several days past unconfirmed rumors have been flying
about that D. C. Corbin had withdrawn his application, presented
to tbe Dominion parliament, for a
charter to build the long talked of
Kettle River Valley railway. These
rumors have been denied and reaffirmed repeatedly.
Yesterday, however, the matter
was settled by the receipt of a
message by wire by the publishers
of the Record, from a source considered entirely trustworthy, that
the application had been definitely
withdrawn. Whether this was
done merely for the purpose of
making the application in another
form, or for another route, could
not be learned bp to the time of
going to press today.
Yesterday's Spokesman-Review,
which paper makes a specialty of
railway news, gave nothing definite
or satisfactory in the matter, except that Mr. Corbin had a few
days previously denied all rumors
of his intention of withdrawal or of
abandoning the fight.
The Rossland Miner, which has
been waging a bitter war against
theC. P. R., had; the following in
its issue of yesterday :
" W< rd was received in the city
last evening that D. C. Corbin had
withdrawn his application for ft
charter for his projected Kettle
River Valley railway. The report
was practically confirmed by some
of Mr. Corbin's friends in Rossland, and there, therefore, seemB
little room to doubt its correctness.
The reason of the withdrawal
given by Mr. Corbin is understood
to he his conviction that it was
impossible to carry the application
through the railway committee."
An Improvement at Last
For the first time in many
moons, the mail from Rossland
and Nelson was received last night
in Cascade the same day it was
sent. This is one of the immediate
effects of changing the service into
the Boundary country from Marcus to Bossburg. If the American
authorities will keep on in the
good work, after awhile we may
possibly have a fairly good mail
service. However, there is still
sreat room for improvemeiii,
especially in the transmission of
Spokane mail.

not given, but a few thousand dollars was paid in cash, the balance
to be in stock. The properly will
be floated on the Toronto market,
and development will follow.
Another company, to operate a
Burnt Basin property, has been
floated in eastern Canada. It has
a capital of $150,000, and will extensively develop the Pleasures of
Hope claim, adjoining the Mother
Lode, and is one of the first claims
staked in the district. T. G. Elgie
and A P. Hunter, of Rossland, are
interested in the deal.

the matter. Upon investigating our
subscription book we found that
Tom was short $2.50. He had

stopped his paper as a matter of
economy to us. A few evenings

CASCADE'S FIRST CELEBRATION.
No doubt now remains that the
celebration to take place in Cascade, on the 24th of May, in honor
of the 80th birthday of Queen Victoria, will be successful. The
general committee of arrangements,
appointed at last Saturday night's
-mass meeting, selected a finance
committe of five, and the latter
deserve credit for the business like
manner in which they got to work
and secured subscriptions from
our citizens to meet the expenses
���of the day. The rpady response of
the business men when the matter
was presented to them, was gratifying to the committee.
This will be the first celebration
that has ever occurred in the history of Cascade, and when it is
successfully carried out it will be a
big advertisement for this city and
for the entire Boundary country.
People far and near will know that
our people are wide-awake and up
to the times, even if without railway communication as yet.
The representative of the finance
committee who visited Grand Forks
on Thursday reported that Mayor
Manly and leading citizens promised hearty co-operation with
the Cascade celebration, and that
they would do all they could to
make it a memorable one. When
Grand Forks has a celebration,
this will not he forgotten by the
people of Cascade.
Various sub-committees have
now been appointed to have charge
of the details of the event, and are
hard at work at their respective
duties. Every member is enthusiastic to do his share. By this time
next week mammoth chromatic
posters will be in evidence in all
public places for a radius of 80
miles around Cascade. It is expected that special rates will be
granted by the transportation
lines, and nothing left undone to
carry out the proposed monster
programme to the letter.
MR. CORBIN WITHDRAWS.
The Record is reliably informed
that Mr. Bostock, our member for
the Dominion parliament, has sent
word to D. C. Corbin that there is
no chance for the passage of the
Kettle River  Railway charter at
this session. Accordingly, Mr.
Corbin has withdrawn the application that he had put in for said
charter. No further explanations
are as yet at hand, but it is evident
that Mr. Corbin placed considerable faith in the judgment of our
member, and has acted accordingly.
This announcement will be unpleasant news to a large number of
residents in the Boundary country,
but as far as Cascade is concerned
it has its compensations. It was
stated, on presumably good authority, that had the proposed new
Corbin line been built, smelters
would have sprung up across the
line and secured considerable
of the Boundary ore tonnage. This
would have made the immediate
profitable operation of Boundary
smelters a questionable investment.
As it is, the C, P. R. has the field
and will undoubtedly, in due time,
proceed with the construction of
the Cascade smelter as the first of
those proposed to be built in the
Boundary.
The T. Eaton Co., of Toronto,
have most considerately favored
the publishers of the Record with
one of their latest voluminous catalogues, from which we can buy
almost anything from a pin to a
pterodactyl. As the Record does
not get its support from Toronto,
it is needless to remark that the
circular is useless in thn office. It
is a lamentable fact that thousands
of dollars monthly go from British;
Columbia to this house. These
purchases should all be made at
home. The saving apparently
made is in reality a heavy drain
and this money should be kept in
the province. T. Eaton & Co.
never spend a dollar here, and why
should our people send money to
Toronto when the same or better
goods can be had at home.
After one or two fistic encounters
in his town, Editor Duncan Ross,
of the Greenwood Times, recently
advertised in his editorial columns
for a body guard, the only stipulation being that applicants should
not be particular about their opponents. It now transpires that
Mr. Ross is about to dispose of his
interest in the paper to R E. Gosnell, formerly provincial librarian
at Victoria. It is not stated whether
this deal is the immediate result of
the appearance of the notice referred to.
On f the first day of May, one
week from next Monday, the Court
of Revision of the Register of
Voters for Rossland riding will he
held at J. Kirkup's office in Rossland. Cascade is in the Rossland
riding, and every voter should see
to it that his name is on the list
correctly. A good voters' list is a
most effective argument when anything is asked of tho government.
recording office should be located
at Cascade, is meeting with the
approval of the great majority of
mining men and prospectors of the
section. No other change of this
nature could possibly benefit so
many persons hereabouts.
Up in Greenwood betting is even
that the C. P. R. track will be laid
into town by July 1st. Then there
are a few who do not expect it in
Cascade till after that date. Superintendent Jack Stewart's assertion
is that the steel will be down as
far as Cascade some time in the
month of June.
If the report is correct that extensive repairs are to be started
soon on the wagon road between
Cascade and Bossburg, the news
will ne most welcome to the thousands now forced to*travel over that
much dilapidated thoroughfare.
These repairs should have been
undertaken last year.
There are some persons who
helieve that a big corporation
should be "jumped on" continually, on general principles. Even
the devil is reputed, on good authority, not to be as black as he if
painted.
The Yukon scandals, which are|
being aired these days at Ottawa,;
are getting just a little tires,>me���
almost as much so as the interminable debates on the address.
As a railway headquarters,
smelter headquarters and mining
headquarters, could a better or
more suitable place for a recording
office be found than Cascade?
Jf any one doubts the enthusiasm
prevailing in Cascade about the
Queen's birthday celebration, he
should attend one of the committee
meetings.

$ ADVERTISING HINTS?
The first stage of retrogression of
an advertiser comes when he closes
his mind to new ideas.
All judicious advertising is easting bread upon the waters, and the
returns are many fold.
There is mighty little mystery
about advertising. If you go about
it in the right way it pays.
Good judgment and common
sense are more necessary to an
advertiser than the most extended
knowledge of advertising theory.
Profit from advertising is almost
as certain as profit from merchandizing, but both must be handled
properly, or there will be no profit.
It is a hard thing to trace results.
You know that if you advertise
properly and keep it up that you
succeed, or perhaps some people
would say that the people who
succeed have advertised.
Although advertising, per se, has
long been in vogue, it can well be
said that it is an old story that U
ever new, and that its merits are
only partially understood and far
too often its intrinsic value not
appreciated.

THE CASCADE RECORD
MMMMMssMMfflSMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM
| BY THE WAYSIDE   8
At last the long wished for
change in our mail route has been
made, and connection is now made
with Bossburg, instead of Marcus
(7 miles further away) as formerly.
The order from the American postmaster-general to this effect was
published in last week's Record,
and on Tuesday of this week the
new arrangement went into effect.
The Record believes that this will
result in a greatly improved service for the next few months, or
until a regular train service is
inaugurated on the new railway
line.
For the first few days of this new
service, one desired reform has not
taken place, viz., Cascade did not
receive the Rossland sacks on the
same day they were sent. In other
words, the stages did not wait for
the sacks from the down train..
This was one of the objections to
the service from Marcus, as it required two d&r& to receive any and
all mail matter from the Kootenays. This should be looked
into at once. Already this week,
the publishers of the Record, received a letter from a Bossburg
gentleman, which went to Grand
Forks first; and on Wednesday
the Spokane papers kept up their
old tricks of going through to the
Forks or elsewhere. The Bossburg
postmaster, in view of the fact that
this was one of the chief causes of
complaint when the mail was
handled at Marcus, should take
Bpecial pains to see that no complaints are heard in the future on
this account. If the postal clerk
on the train csnnot handle thf
mail, he should be given assistance.
There is no longer any doubt
about the success of the 24th of
May celebration, which will be
held in Cascade. It was indeed
gratifying to the members of the
finance committee to meet with
such a ready and generous response
from our business men. It augurs
well'for the event itself. Not a
citizen of the town refused to do
his share. It is this kind of pulling together by the people of any
community that makes such a
favorable impression on the outside
world.
Now that the finance committee
has practically completed its im
portant labors, the other committees will undoubtedly do as
well as the members of the finance
committee Arrangements ar��<
nearly completed for a brass band
of twelve pieces, and the celebration will he advertised up and
down the Boundary country by
means of mammoth posters printed
iu several colors. Everybody will
he here, with his sisters and his
cousins and his aunts.
The putting on of a new stage
line from Bossburg, should give n
greatly improved service into the
Boundary country. The new line,
which is called the Marcus & Republic Transportation aud Express
Co., ran from Marcus to Republic
until that highway became impassible, makes some excellent promises
about the service they will give. If
carried out, it will reduce the
running time considerably, and
render the trip less irksome.
" You can tell your business
people," said a prominent official
of the C. P. R. to a Record representative during the week, " thai
they need not worry about the
smelter being built at Cascade."
For obvious reasons, while details
are being arranged, the official
referred to did not wish to have
his name known in the matter, but
the assurance is an agreeable one
to receive, nevertheless. Of course
there are people who will not
believe this until they see operations on the reduction works actually commenced.
The Record has been firm in its
faith all along that Cascade has
the best site in this entire section
for smelting purposes. There are
advantages here possessed by no
other point���advantages that will,
beyond a peradventure of a doubt,
win the day. In this connection,
a well known business man of Cascade, with some sporting proclivities, authorizes the Record to
state that he has money to wager
on the smelter being built here.
Here is ai> opportunity for some of
the know-it-alls, if they have the
courage of their convictions, to
eome forward and show it.

FROM OLADSTONE.
Two inches of snow fell in town
on Monday. The snow in the hills
is still of considerable depth.
John Dorsey has secured the
contract for boarding the men of
the bridge crew, at his Gladstone
hotel.
The new post-office, located in
Qrant Bros, store, iB a greatly appreciated convenience to the business men.
Sam McOrmond has sold put his
general stock of merchandise to
Grant Bros., but still holds his interest in the Victoria hotel.
James Ennis, formerly associated
with Tom Flynn, in the conduct of
the Burnt Basin hotel, is understood to be going into business in
Idaho.
Monday a force of 10 bridge
builders, employed by Porter Bros.
& McArthur, the railway bridge
contractors, arrived in town. They
are the advance guard of the gang
that will build the three high railway trestles near here.. More men
i will soon arrive for the same work.
As soon as the snow is off work
will begin on the trail which will
be built to Norway mountain, a
distance of six miles, connecting
with the trail to Rossland. The
-work is to be paid for by Glad-
���stone's business men, who will
thus secure considerable additional
trade.
Many mining men are coming
in nowadays and are making preparations for development work on
a number of adjacent properties,
especially those located in the now
well known Burnt Basin.
Customs and Peculiarities.
To the Editor of the Record :
Sir ���I would like to publicly
ask the customs officials of Cascade
whether they are unaware of, or
indifferent to the smuggling that is
taking place so frequently. It has
now continued unhindered for
some time, attracting so little opposition that prices are being
openly quoted for various goods
which can admit of no, doubt what-,
ever, irrespective of ocular and
aural demonstration, that they
came in by the " open door."
Not only goods for sale but
articles for private and home consumption are coming through and
the smugglers are blandly and
fearlessly " chartling in their joy,"
They have struck a soft snap.
It has been said that "''tis the
Bight of means to do ill deeds that
makes those ill deeds done," and
the policy of posting customs officials at the back door of a town
instead of at the front gate ' is
mainly responsible for the evils
above referred to. The position of
the office is moreover' a source of
constant annoyance to incoming
travellers, who, dusty, muddy or
cold, according to season, tired
always and sometimes ill tempered
are driven   (apparently   on   the
principle of hunting the gowk another mile) first to the stables, then
to the customs, possibly to the
post office and finally to their
hotels.
The peripatetic, personally conducted pilgrims, driven here,
driven there, driven anywhere,
driven almost to despair, cannot
have a very first rate impression of
the Gateway City, and its peculiar
customs.
Yours truly,      Scrutator.

HAD A NARROW ESCAPE.
WIN Not be Nearer Death till He's InHls
CoHlo.
Gerald Upton of the B. C. M. &
M. Syndicate, met with an experience on Sunday afternoon which
only escaped being fatal by the
merest fractions of time and space.
He had been out hunting with Mr.
Mayall and in descending a precipitous portion of the mountain
behind Graham's, found the rock
was giving way underneath him ;
Bix feet below was a narrow ledge
and beneath that a sheer preoipice
of ISO feet. He used his foot to
wedge back the rock and being
absolutely unable to return or
move forward without meeting inevitable death called to his companion for assistance; this was supplied by wedging in a stone in
place of his foot, and allowed him
about half a second in which to
make a dangerous spring sideways
on to the ledge beneath. Instantaneously the rock weighing about
four hundred pounds, followed by
smaller pieces, slid forward and
passing within a foot of Mr. Upton's head, thundered down the
mountain side to rind rest 600 feet
below. As his companion remarks,
" Upton came about six inches off
being an angel and will never be
nearer death until he is in his
coffin."

Prof. W. R. Mobius' hypnotic
seance at the Cascade auditorium
last Saturday night was not a
glittering success from any point
of view. It is said that one or two
paid accomplices were in the
audience.
J. S. Frye, of Spokane, one of
the original townsite owners of
Cascade, arrived on Tuesday and
will stay several days. His last
visit was in August, and Mr. Frye
is greatly impressed with the
growth of Cascade since then.
All three of the new cottages just
built by the townsite company are
now occupied, The occupants are
the families of Messrs. Sinclair;
Porter and Scott The fourth, now
in course of construction, will be
finished soon, when the family of
Jack Stewart will make it their

It is now given out that the government will spend about 92500 on
the wagon road from Grand Forks
to Cascade. About 200 lineal feet
of new 4-inch planking have been
put down in place of the corduroy
at the Cascade bridge. For a little
more money a rock roadbed could
have been made in the hillside
that would last for years.
