Do Not Waste Your Money in Chasing
Rainbow Wealth.
The Smelter, with Other Industries, Will
Come in Due Time���The C. P. R. Would
Like to See Boundary Ore Treated.
When the true history of the
mining camps of British Columbia
and, indeed, of the whole of western America, comes to be written, it
will be seen that those who have
proved themselves the most successful men, are they who carefully
selected their locations and stayed
there. It is possible that more
time and money is wasted in unwarranted travel from one spot to
another than on anything else in
British Columbia.
During a temporary lull, or in
hearing of many glamorous reports
from elsewhere, there is too much
inclination to forget the old saying,
"Better endure the ills ye have
than fly to those ye know not of."
Cascade today has as good and
solid prospects as any inland town
in this province. Her advantages
are natural, physical and be-
bond question. The life-time energy of a big community could not
build up what we have here already
���the best power-site, the best
smelter-site, the best railroad entry
in the Boundary country, and mineral prospects that are improving
all the time.
Disappointment has been expressed because the C. .P. R. has
not fulfilled expectations by put
ting in a smelter right away. Let
common sense apply, and the cold
truth be told. The C. P. R. has
Biwelters already, and those smelters have not heen unqualified successes. They have cost much money
and resulted in more experience
than profit. The Boundary country ores will need experimental
tests. The most experienced smelter
man in the world could not build ��
plant which would treat those ores
perfectly from the start. The railway company knows well by this
time that in dealing with low-grade
ores the utmost economy must be
practiced; it knows that mistakes
in smelter construction are twofold
blunders; firstly in expense, and
secondly in interference with routine process.
Mr. Aldridge of the Trail smelter
probably had a hidden meaning
when he said the C. P. R. would
hail with pleasure tne construction
of smelters throughout the Boundary country by other parties. He
well knew that the C. P. R. would
profit in the hauling and mining
development consequent thereon,
and could afford to watch and wait
and adopt the dual role of Br'er
Fox and a certain monkey which
used cat's paws to rake the chestnuts from out the smelters glow.
And meanwhile the C. P. R. still
holds its option on the Cascade
smelter site, and the public may
rest assured that when once the
best treatment of Boundary ores
has been decided upon, the biggest,
best and most successful smelter in
British Columbia will be built here
in Cascade by the Canadian Pacific
Railway Company.
A Second Contingent for the Transvaal.
An Associated Press dispatch
says that British Columbia people
are overjoyed at the prospect of the
Dominion government sending a
second contingent for service in the
Transvaal. The general sentiment
is that if British Columbia is allowed to raise a full regiment the
work could be completed in three
days. The cost of equipment would
be defrayed by popular subscription. It may happen before Oom
Paul and his followers are well
trounced, every province in the
Dominion will have an opportunity
of demonstrating the prowess of its
young warriors.
Notes of Various Kinds on the New Boundary Line.
The bridge gang has finished the
Howe-truss spans at Cascade and
Gladstone, and is now working at
the bridge over Kettle river at
McCool's. Next week the gang will
begin on the spans at Columbia.
The present arrangement of Chief
Engineer Tye is to have the road
from Grand Forks to Greenwood inspected by the government officials
on the 15th instant. Daily passenger trains will be run to Greenwood shortly thereafter.
Ballasting and aligning is now
completed to the end of the track,
just across the Anaconda bridge.
From 25 to 50 passengers are
carried each way by the construction trains between Grand Forks
and Greenwood. There are no accommodations, as travel is not solicited, hut there is no grumbling.
Last Monday the track-laying
machine, which, after all, is being
used on the Greenwood camp spur,
laid 51 stations���nearly a mile.
This makes about three miles down
Travel into the Boundary coun-
r y on the new line continues
heavy. Many days there are no
spare seats in the train.
It seems to be all but settled that
the track will not be laid to Midway this year, thereby making
Greenwood the terminus for the
time being.
There are 27 miles of track on
the various spurs to the mines.
Jack Stewart made a trip to
Eholt this week, to inspect the
tracklaying already done.
Steel is still coming very slowly,
but the officials of the C. P. R. are
rustling hard to get enough to complete the spurs.
Five or six cars of freight are
being hauled into Greenwood every
When the line to Greenwood is
taken over, contractors' train dispatcher, Mr. Durkee, will move his
headquarters from Grand Forks to
Jack Stewart says daylight will
be put through the Bull Dog tunnel
by Christmas, but it will take another month after that to put on
the finishing touches. It will be
2,998 feet long, and there are but between 500 and 600 feet to drive.
Lately the work has been progressing most satisfactorily, the progress
being at the rate of 95 feet per
week. The bore is 16x21 feet in size.
The Boundary Country is Developing Rapidly
���Extensive Orders for Mining Appliances
The importance that the province
of British Columbia has attained
to as a rich mining section is a
marvel not only to the parent country, but to itself, even. Its mineral
developments, yet in their infancy,
are attracting investors from all
parts of the civilied world, and not
the least among its productive districts is the division known as the
Boundary country. Perhaps no
other portion of the province is so
rapidly and successfully uncovering the unlimited wealth heretofore
hidden in its mountain ranges.
These discoveries and a desire to
profit by them has created a demand for modern appliances with
which to secure the valuable minerals so firmly held by natural conditions.
Mr. Frank R. Mendenhall, agent
of the Jenckes Machine company,
of Sherbrooke, Que., has recently
made a trip through the Boundary.
On his return out he said to a reporter of the Rossland Miner that
the entire section west of that city is
looking well. The people there are
in an enthusiastic frame of mind
over the completion of the railway
and the prospects of spurs to the
many mining properties there. The
three towns, Grand Forks, Greenwood and Phoenix, are growing
rapidly and buildings are being
erected as fast as men and materials can be furnished. The demand
for machinery there is very great.
Mr. Mendenhall sold to the Jewel
mine a four-drill compressor plant
with all the necessary equipment.
TotheBonanxa Mountain company
on tbe north fork of the Kettle
river he disposed of a 30-horse
power boiler, hoist and pump; to
the Kamloops Mining company of
Camp McKinney a 30-horse power
hoist and sinking pump; to Ernest
Spraggett Sawmill company of
Grand Forks, a 60-horse power
boiler to reinforce a plant that is
already large.
The great social eveut of the
week in Republic occurred Monday
when the management of the Republic mine, overflowing in son>l at
the richness of its property, gave
its employes a banquet. It was
enjoyed by nearly 150 persons and
afforded the employers and employes in their convivial moments
a rare and excellent opportunity
to get in close touch, enjoy mutual
admiration and swap taffy without
stint. This was the second banquet given by the Republic mine to
its employee. The practice is a
good one.   Let it be continued.

fenders of Hone.
Responsibility of Strong Nations to Guard the
Weak Against Oppression and Advance
the World's March.
There is a hot time in South Africa at present, but it is simply the
boiling over of the heat developed
from friction between the parties
for a long time. Some sympathize
with the Boers, claiming that they
are provoked and abused to the
point of war; while others take
sides with Briton, regarding her ae
pursuing her usual course of carrying forward liberty, enterprise and
Many years ago the Boers were
acknowledged at a convention at
Sand River as an independent people, but they were in terms of the
treaty to acknowledge the rights of
property, life, etc., of tbe native
blacks in the surrounding countries.
These terms they did not respect-
Under their government flinging
and murdering the natives went on
till they were driven to desperation.
The blacks rose up against their
oppressors and would have destroyed them but for the protection of
Britain, which the Boers invoked.
In 1876 the Transvaal was re-annexed to British territory. The
result was the restoration of orderr
confidence and prosperity.
But the restive, lawless ones raised up a rebellion, and finally in the
supposed interests of peace, the
Transvaal was again given up by
Britain with certain conditions attached.
During the time of British government and proteetion many enterprising foreigners,mostly British,
settled in the country, developing;
its mineral resouces. These contributed largely in taxation and
otherwise to the prosperity of the
!place; but as foreigners they were-
not allowed any voice in the management of state affairs, and were-
even denied the right of becoming
citizens hy adoption until they had
lived in the country many years-
Oppression of these Urtlanders, or
foreigners, Became so great that appeal was made to the home government for relief. AH appeals by
Britain were valuless. The Boers-
adhered* stnl.bornfv to their old
policy, considering their ownership
of the country sufficent authority
for their acts of oppression and an-
The idea lias prevailed of Tate
that strong nations are responsible
for the rights and liberties of the
weak, hence tfie United States'"war
with Spain in the interests of the
oppressed Cubans and Filipinos.
This war is another of like kind,
in the interests of Uitlanders and
the native negroes against the relentless oppression of the grasping,
lawless Boer. THE   CASCADE   RECORD
November 11,1899
Tellurium is a scarce mineral
more valuable than gold and worth
about $28 per ounce. The report
of a find of this near the head of
Kettle river is therefore important,
for while a big ledge is said to have
heen discovered, increasing in value
at depth, the assays run high in
this metal, besides gold which is
always found along with it. This
promises to be one of the best discoveries yet made in the district,
���eavs the British Columbia Beview.
A London dispatch says that the
Newfoundland difficulties are likely
to crop up again. The modus
vivendi published with France expires, in January, and a member
of the Newfoundland government
is quoted as saying it will not be
renewed, adding that definite Imperial action must be taken in the
near future. If the furiously anti-
British tone of the French press
���can be taken as an indication of the
national attitude, serious diplomatic or worse complications may
be expected.
Wireless telegraphy has won another round of applause, under a
severe test. A few days ago at New
York mesesages by this system were
sent to and from the warships Massachusetts and New York from the
lime they left the North river till
they were twenty-nine miles at sea.
The conditions rendered the messages specially difficult, yet all
were read easily despite the wind,
intervening hills, church spires,
chimneys and other obstacles.
This great triumph achieved, what
��next?   Rail less railroads ?
Clarence J. McCuaig, of Montreal,
who owns an extensive interest in
the Republic mine, and who was in
that camp a few days ago, is reported to have said : "An eminent
legal auhtority has advised the
Payne mine that the eight-hour
law is unconstitutional. In all
liklihood a test case will be made
in order to determine the authority
of the provincial parliament to
draft legislation that has caused so
much trouble between labor and
capital. The measure was not
eought by the miners. We contemplate starting up work in the
Payne, paying $3.50 for ten hours.
If we are fined, the case will be appealed, and if need be, appealed to
the Privy Council."
The citizens of Columbia are not
content with the legal outcomein Ihe
matter of incendiary destruction of
the Hotel Columbia. They claim
that justice has only been partially
satisfied; that while the creature
who applied the torch is doing penance for his dastardly crime, the
instigator and arch fiend still enjoys life, liberty and the pursuit of
other victims. Hence the following publication : "$1,000 reward.
The sum of $1,000 (one thousand
dollars) will be paid to any person
or oersons for information that
will lead to the arrest and conviction of the persons who incited and
paid the money for burning the
Hotel Columbia, at Columbia, B.
C, on the 17th day of June, 1899."
While this may be a bona fide transaction, the signatures to the notice,
"Corporation of the Town of Columbia," and "Columbia Townsite
Co., Limited," seem to be somewhat
indefinite���difficult to individualize and locate, as it were.
The Newfoundland government
is considering a proposal to form
half the colonial police into a company for service in the Transvaal.
The Canadian government will be
requested, it is understood, to incorporate this company with the
second Canadian regiment, Newfoundland paying a proportional
share of the expense. The colonial
police, being like the Royal Irish
constabulary,a semi-military body,
armed, well drilled, and fully
equipped, could take the field at
once. The scheme meets with general approval.
Work on the Mother Lode in the
Burnt Basin, has been discontinued
for the present.
There is talk of changing the
name of the town of Gladstone, on
account of there being another
place of the same name in Manitoba.
A good start has been made on
the wire fencing for the new railway, between Grand Forks and
Cascade. Several miles are already
put up.
Two or three concerns are willing
to supply Greenwood with electric
light, and put in a tramway to
Phoenix at the same time. Among
them is P. Welch & Co.
Greenwood's ratepayers have voted to bond the city for $15,000 for
improvements. The debentures
were sold at once at 101, through
the bank of Montreal.
David Bryant, a prospector 45
years of age, shot and killed himself recently in a house of ill-fame
in Greenwood. He came from the
Northwest Territories about three
years ago.
It is now expected by Chief Engineer Tye that trains will be running through the Bull Dog tunnel
by February 1st, thereby shortening the trackage to West Robson
by four miles.
A mule was struck by the pilot
of a locomotive, on the railway
track near town a few days ago.
The accident happened in a rock
cut near the dam, and the animal
had to be shot.
Frank Hutchinson was down
from the Elmore, on Shamrock
mountain, early in the week. He
says he has a five-foot ledge of ore
on his latest strike, with well defined walls.
The Greenwood Times Printing
<fc Publishing Co. has been gazetted,
with a capital of $25,000, for the
purpose of publishing a daily paper, etc., the first issue of which
will appear about December 1st.
Oscar Englund, C. P. R. division
engineer, at request of Mr. Tye, has
given up his trip totheold country.
He has returned-to the Similkameen, and with a force of 15 or 20
assistants, is running more lines
for the extension of the Boundary
railway. ���	
Callfornlan Englishmen Want to Go, Too.
Major Gerrard, of Santa Cruz,
California, has received a cablegram
from the British war department
thanking him for his offer to raise
a regiment of Englishmen in California for service in the Transvaal,
but stating that owing to existing
circumstances the offer can not be

The Cascade Record has rounded
out a complete year of existence.
For twelve months it has appeared
regularly every Saturday. With
its first issue, dated November 12,
1898, the publisher asked only for
^uch support as the paper would
be entitled to upon its merits.
.Judged from that standard alone,
<it has been a success���and its many
friends have repeatedly asserted
that it was a success from any
point of view. More than once the
>publisher has had it remarked to
,him by outsiders that the Record
was the best printed and most
newsy paper in the Boundary
country. This has certainly been
the aim of the management from
the inception. How well we have
succeeded we leave to others to determine.
In beginning another volume the
publisher believes it only fair that
every reader should bear in mind
a few facts. The Record was established because it was thought there
was a field for it. This has been
���demonstrated to our satisfaction.
We have no hesitation in saying
that we believe Cascade and the
Christina and Boundary districts
have a great future before them.
Some places grow faster than
others, but every town in this rich
section will grow and prosper as
time goes on. Cascade cannot fail
to receive its share of growth and
impetus, surrounded as it is with
rich mineral showings and a water
power almost unrivaled.
A word personal. If you have
been receiving the Record regularly, and admire its tone and get-up,
just renew your subscription. Send
along your two-dollar bill. Such
"actions speak louder than words."
If vou appreciate our efforts, show
that appreciation. We are here to
stay, and we will give a paper commensurate with the support received. If you are on the delinquent list, remember that printers
eat like others, and your prompt
remittance will be appreciated.
James J. Hill, of the Great
Northern R. R. Co., proposes to
.build some mammoth transpacific
freight ships. They are to be 700
feet long, have a capacity of 20,000
tons and a speed of fourteen knots.
They will be the largest ocean
freight transports in the world.
His idea is that the size of these
vessels will enable Amercan flour
to compete with rice as the food
staple of the Chinese. Tbe new
fleet will start with two boats, to
be increased as demands require
If each one of the 450,000,000 inhabitants of the Chinese empire
consumed per day one small slice
of bread made of American wheat
it would employ many Jim Hill
ships to transport the flour to them.
Thomas G. Shaughnessy, president of the C. P. R., is certainly a
man of parts���a man who seems
to have the knack of leaving a
pleasant impression behind him in
his travels. At least, such appears
to have been the case on his recent
trip to British Columbia. Doubtless it was qualities of this kind
that enabled him to climb to his
present high position.
When he arrived in Nelson it
leaked out, unpremeditatedly, of
course, that work would be started
on the railway along Kootenay
lake to Balfour. In Rossland he
assured a deputation from the
board of trade that connection,
long desired, would be.made there
with the Great Northern. At Cascade he stated unequivocally that
a smelter would be constructed in
the Gateway City. In Grand Forks
he is reported to have asserted that
if there was not a pound of ore in
the Boundary country, the fine
Yale hotel was worth building a
railway to. In Columbia and in
Greenwood he also said nice things.
And on the coast he made the Victoria people happy by making
somewhat similar statements.
Altogether, Mr. Shaughnessy succeeded in making a large lot of people hereabouts think that the C. P.
R. was just about right, in one way
or another. It is in his power to
make the statements credited to
him good. It is to he hoped he
will do this where the conditions
warrant it.
Mr. Shaughnessy makes an excellent executive for the C. P. R.
Sir William C. Macdonald of
Montreal, a wealthy man, is winning just commendation from his
fellow citizens, setting an example
eminently worthy of emulation
and chipping a niche in history
that will redound to the glory and
pride of his compatriots Mr. Macdonald believes in education, not
of the sort that would increase the
already crowded ranks of literary
paupers, but in the practical kind,
that will prepare the young to enter the fields of industry that require skilled hands as well as intellectual minds. To this end he
has signified his intention to estab
lish manual training schools in all
the provinces of the Dominion, and
has generously offered to pay for
the equipment required for educational manual training in one
place in each province, and also to
meet the expense of qualified
teachers and incidental maintenance for three years in all these
places. This offer applies to all
boys between the ages of nine and
fourteen years in public schools.
Trained and experienced teachers
will be brought from Europe at
first to be in charge of the schools,
and next summer it is proposed
to send teachers from Canada
to Great Britain and Sweden to
take a course in manual training
there. Now we hope Vancouver
and Victoria will not bring disgrace upon this province in an unseemly scramble for the location of
oi>e of these schools.

The return of the 6tate of Washington volunteers from the Philippine islands, this week, caused the
hearts of many near and dear relatives in the state to leap with joy.

sorely for the dear ones absent from

Practical Mine Managers More In Demand
than Ever Before.
Practical miners are not alone in
the business of mining. Many men
who never held or struck a drill, or
shoveled a ton of dirt into a sluice-
box, and who can't tell a stull from
a stope, will speak very learnedly
about mines and mining, and frequently throw out a shingle with
the legend "mine expert" lettered
upon it, Several years ago these
"experts" could be found in nearly
every little mining camp in the
Northwest. They are not so plentiful these latter dayB. Men who invest in mines are more particular
in selecting their mine managers
than they were in the early
mining days. They have learned
by dearly bought experience that
"book learning," while all right as
an equipment, does not fully prepare a man to assume a responsible position in mine management.
He must or should have a practical knowledge of mining to acquire
the full measure of success in his
It is true that fortunes have been
made by investors in mines, who
never swung a pick or trod a ldvel,
but they employed practical men,
not theorists to manage the underground part of the business.
If the whole truth were known it
would transpire that the great bulk
of mining . failures is directly
chargeable to ignorance���to the
failure of theories to answer expectations raised. Any theory based
upon the working of a mine or
group of mines, may prove baseless
when applied to a different formation. Mother earth was not built
upon any given plan or rule. She
is full of freaks, and theorists never
take freaks into consideration. The
practical miner meets and surmounts them, and then goes about
his business until he finds something else unusual to tax his resources. The theorist may build a
theory from what he saw, but it
dies "a bornin,'" for he never finds
a condition to fit it. Practioal
miners know when they meet
changed conditions of the earth in
shafts or in levels, but they can't
pay whether they will make or
break hy pursuing the change. A
theory is often followed to financial
ruin; a practical man follows only
what is in sight. Theory and practice in mining never trot in the
same class. ��� Western Mining

Vancouver Saya Victoria  li  Not  All  of
British Columbia.
Between Victoria and Vancouver
there is a spirited rivalry, and a
constant contention as to relative
commercial importance. Jealousy
thus engendered often leads to
squabbles, the airing of which in
the local papers frequently does
neither city any credit. Just now
the illy-chosen bone of contention
is the selection of a captain for
the Canadian contingent sent to
the Transvaal, notwithstanding the
fact the officer chosen is well at sea
on his way to do battle in defence
of the flag. In concluding an article on the choice made the Vancouver World waxes wrath and delivers itself of these admonitory remarks :
"We cannot, however, allow the
opportunity to pass without reminding the officials at Ottawa, no
matter what department they may
be in, or who they may be, that
Victoria has long since ceased to be
British Columbia, and the sooner
the members of the government, as
well as all subordinates at the
capital, realize this fact, the better.
From whatever point viewed, Vancouver leads Vicioria, and each day
widens the cleavage between the
two in this respect. British Columbia is now a mrghty province, one
of the most important in the Dominion, and Vancouver being the
gateway to the mainland from the
ocean, it is to be hoped that the
powers that be at the capital will
not ignore this city, as has been the
practice many years back. In this
respect the late government and
the present one have been and are
derelict in their duty."
Republic  Must and Will Have a Railroad.
In an editorial on the subject of
a railroad, after discussing the feasibility of such a road, based up the
recent wonderful developments in
that camp, the Miner says :
"The people here have grown
very impatient on the railroad
question. The lack of railroad
transportation is seriously retarding the growth of both the camp
and the town. We are not getting
what we really deserve. We have
done enough work here to bring a
railroad, and if Mr. Hill does not
care to build it, we would be glad
if he would say so finally and definitely, so we could look to somebody else. There are people who
will build a railroad to Republic.
We know who they are and we
know what we are talking about."
The Miner not only sees the necessity of quicker and more adequate transportation facilities, but
says that Republic should be incorporated, that it may grow up
in conformity with modern citified
ideals, so that when it makes its debut in the society of cities with a
population of from 5,000 to 10,000
it will have acquired the art of
posing gracefully.
Forty Miners With a Grievance Quit Work.
Owing to the refusal of the management to pay $3.50 a day, seventeen miners on the Athabasca mine
two-and-a-half miles south of Nelson, quit work, Thursday, says the
There was also difficulty at the
Silver King mine over pay for
working in a wet shaft. The men
wanted $4 per day, and the management was unwilling to pay more
than $3.50. The men working in
the shaft quit, and the others that
were asked to take their places, on
refusing, were discharged. In all
twenty-six men came down the hill.
All the men are not members of the
union, but all are alike firm in the
determination to stand out for the
scale of wages that is now recognized as the "Kootenay standard,"
namely, $3.50 for miners, and $3
for muckers or carmen, and 50
cents a day extra for work in wet
shafts or tunnels.
Suffering, from a Coal Famine.
The citizens of Nelson are somewhat perturbed over the shortness
of the local coal supply. The
trouble is not that there is an insufficient supply in the wholesale
markets but in the fact that the
railroad company will not haul in
a supply at present, preferring first
to serve the great wheat farmers of Manitoba, which service absorbs all of the extra cars, hence
Nelson must saw wood if sawing
the atmosphere fails to produce

C. H. May is building an addition to his (Montana) hotel.
Mr. Roy, formerly of the Yukon
store here, was in town this week.
New sticker aud lath machinery
arrived this morning for the Cascade sawmill.
Mrs. Pugsley,wife A.H. Pugsley,
of the Montana hotel, who haB
been quite ill, is convalescing.
A new four-seated coach has been
���placed on the stage line between
���Grand Forks and Republic.
Both manual and team labor is
exceedingly scarce, it being almost
impossible to procure either.
The Uitlander club met at the
home of Mrs. 6. F. Woodman on
Wednesday afternoon, having an
especially enjoyable time.
Never in the history of the town
have the hotels been better patronized than now, every room being
occupied nearly every night.
The proprietor of the Hotel Cascade is wearing extra smiles just
now. As we go to press we learn he
has struck some rich rock in a claim
iiear town.
Mr. Parsons, of the paymaster's
department of the C. P. R. contractors1 headquarters, has been transferred to the tunnel, where he will
act as bookkeeper.
B. F. Vancleve, of the firm of
Bowen & Vancleve, wood and ice
dealers of Cascade, has been in
Spokane all the week, {promoting
a local mining deal.
Work is steadily progressing in
the construction of the big dam,
the north wing having reached its
extreme height, thereby giving a
comprehensive idea of the magnitude of the structure.
Two men were killed in a railway accident on the Spokane Fall
& Northern near Springdale yesterday. A cow on the track whs
the cause of the accident. Connelly
and Smith are the names of the
Mr. McGguire has started work
on the Russell group with a force
of nine men, and contemplates
continuing all winter. The Russel
group is on Huckleberry mountain,
about four miles southwest of Cascade, an but a short distance from
the Pontifex group, where Mr. Jno.
Inkster has established camp for
the winter, with another force of
miners to work this group of claims.
The first touches of cold upon
(he hilltops are sending the game
to lower levels. Mallard and teal
are becoming more plentiful along
ihe river, creek and lake. While
deer and at least one cougar have
been seen close to town; and the
coyotes are making night hideous
with their yelps. A dead mule near
town seems to be the special attraction.
While business is admittedly
quieter, on the whole, in Cascade,
since the construction gangs got
through, and fire destroyed so much
of our town, yet one thing is abundantly clear, and that is, that what
must be looked upon for permanent
business is improving. We refer to
the mining development. Slowly but
surely progress is being made. One
of the managers of the English
Store says that their business with
the mines is now three times greater
than it was during Cascade's big
building boom a year ago.
The opening of the new Presbyterian church is expected to take
place in a short time. The wet
weather for the past two weeks has
delayed the finishing; but the hope
is entertained that we shall have
some fine weather from this time
on, when the finishing work will be
pushed forward. Notice of the
opening service will be given later.
The service to morrow will be held
as before in the school house west
of the railway station, at 11 a. m.
and 8, p. m. Sabbath school in the
afternoon at 2:30, to all of which
services the public is invited.
Cascade has another telegraph
office. The Spokane & Northern
Telegraph Co., operating in conjunction with the Western Union,
has opened an office in the building adjoining Black's hotel. Direct
connection with Spokane, Rossland,
Nelson, Republic, and all principal
points in the Boundary country.
W. E. McDaniel is local manager.
J. W. Bengough at the Presbyterian Church.
Notwithstanding the fact that
last Wednesday evening was rainy
and dark, a large audience greeted
Mr. Bengough on his first appearance in Cascade. Both he and the
managers of the First Presbyterian
church, in which new building the
entertainment was held, have reason to congratulate themselves, the
proceeds being $31. The entertainment was first-class in every respect. Mr. Bengough interspersed
recitations of a humorous character
with exhibitions of his skill as a
cartoonist, and gave pleasure to all
present. Among local men who
received conspicuous attention at
his hands were Messrs. McCoy,
Stocker, Rochussen and Simpson.
In the sketches the first of the
these gentlemen was represented as
"The Miner's Friend;" the second
was engaged in explaining the brilliant future in store for Cascade to
"A New Arrival;" the third was
represented as a "Justice of The
Peace," and the fourth was in the
act of arguing in a "striking" manner with a youthful offender.
Admiral Dewey Surrenders.
The famous U. S. Admiral, Geo.
Dewey, surrendered his independence at Hymen's altar on Thus-
day to the charms of Mrs. Mildred
Hazen. The Record throws the
metaphorical slipper after them.
It is to be believed that the great
warrior's battles are over, and that
he will spend the rest of his days
in peace and prosperity.
During the week there seems to
have been a lull in the Transvaal
hostilities. The victorious march
of the Boers has been checked, and
their assaults on Ladysmith have
been fiercely repusled by General

for Republic and other Reservation points���the United States
postal department is said to allow
$4,000 annually, or four times the

It is understood that arrangements are being made to bring
Boundary mail in by the new railway line, now that daily trains are
run both ways. If as anticipated,
the road is taken over by the C.P.R.
to Greenwood on November 15th,
the mails will also probably be
started by that date���if the officials
of the Victoria postal division wake
up in time.
After months of negotiation, a
big lumber company has been floated to acquire several Kootenay and
Boundary Creek saw mills. The
capitalization of the company is
$500,000 and the head office wili be
located in Greenwood. The incorporators are A. Fisher and Louis
Blue, who own mills at Greenwood
and Rossland, and Messrs. Genelle
and Poupore, the well-known Kootd-
nay lumbermen, whose mills are
located at Nakusp and Robson.
The new company will operate
mills at Nakusp, Robson, Greenwood, Phoenix, Eholt, Rock creek
and Long Lake. Mr. Poupore is
general manager, while Mr. Fisher
will manage the mills in the Boundary Creek district.���Greenwood
Will Benefit Rossland.
A Rossland dispatch states that
the C.P.R. has granted Rossland
jobbers the same rate on goods
coming into the Boundary country
as is now made from Nelson. This
will give the merchants of the former town a chance to net a share of
the business of this section. The
former rate was based on the local
tariff to Robson plus the charge
from there to the destination and
as Rossland is slightly further from
Robson than is Nelson the jobbers
of the latter place have had the
advantage of about 10 cents per
hundred in the freighting charges.
The C. P. R. has sent the city of
Grand Forks a check for $900���

Avon Mining Company Receives Some Good
Quartz Specimens.
E. N. Ouimette of the Avon Mining company, which owns the
Ennismore in the Burnt Basin, has
just received a sack of fine specimens taken from the recent find on
the property. The Ennismore adjoins the Mother Lode group,
owned by Mike Shick, and Mr.
Shick says that the new ledge is
undoubtedly an extension of the
Mother Lode vein, from which some
remarkably high assays have been
obtained. The specimens received
by Mr. Ouimette came from a depth
of only five or six feet on the
newly-discovered vein, and though
much weather-worn it is a lively
quartz which promises well.���Rossland Record.
