Vol. I.
No. 48.
Rich Mineral Zone is at Our
Mother Lode Crosscut Has Retched the
Ledfe���No. 3 Teasel oa the Mystery la
40 Feet.
Within two or. three miles of
Caecade is a distriot, rich in
precious metals of which but littler
is heard. Nevertheless it has some
of the most promising prospects to
be found in Southern British Columbia. The section referred to is
that of Deep creek, which stream
flows into Kettle river a mile or
two below Cascade. The inacessi-
bility of the ledges has made it
rather an unattractive locality
heretofore in which to prospect.
Now, however, it is rapidly coming
to the front, and bids fair to astonish the mining world in a short
space of time.
One of the best claims on Deep
creek is the King William, owned
by a man named Kin near. It has
a 75 fooTftfrtftfori1' wtifctilB fr wmoS
lass. Assays'have run $80 to 1130.
The ore is a fine looking quartz,
in which native copper is readily
seen/ It is understood that the
property has been bonded.
The Copper Wonder, adjoining
the King William, ie another fine
property. It has a 20 foot shaft,
at the bottom of which is an eight
or ten inch vein of white quartz.
Assays of over $100 in copper and
gold have been obtained from this
ore. Specimens are now on exhibition in the Record office, and
are certainly attractive. This
property has heen stocked.
Adjoining the Copper Wonder
is the New Year, largely owned by
Bowen & VanCleve, of Cascade.
While work on this property has
only just been started, there is a
good vein of live quartz, which is
now being assayed.
Just over the mountain, not over
six or seven miles from Cascade, is
the Little Gem and Little Giant,
both being developed by double
shifts. The former gave the astonishing assay of $19,000 in gold per
ton, and the latter enjoys the distinction of being the first property
on the Colville reservation to ship
a oarload of ore. Not far away is
the First Thought group, owned by
Bruce and Byron White, and P
Burns and Blake Wilson, now getting ready to ship ore. A number
of other promising claims are located nearby, and a number of them
are being worked. One of these is
the Anaconda, in which Peter
Larson and J. W. Stewart are interested.
Strike os Mother Lode.
A strike has heen made on the
Mother Lode, in the Burnt Basin,
which has heen under development
all summer with W. H. Alexander
in  charge.    At  first  an  incline
shaft was sunk about 60 feet, and
then crosscutting began. Charlie
Willarson, who came down yesterday, brings the news that when the
crosscut had been driven 58 feet,
the ledge was encountered. Its
width is not yet known, as the foot
wall has not yet been reached, but
it has already been demonstrated
that the strike is a valuable one.
The rock is a fine grained quartz.
Ctaooaball Looking Floe.
The shaft on the Cannonball
group, on Christina lake, is now
down 70 feet, and the bottom is
looking 'fine. Assays recently
made are quite satisfactory. J. W. charge of the property, has been promoted and will
hereafter look after the California
at Rossland also, on which active
development is once more being
pushed. The property belongs to
the Graves-Miner syndicate. Al.
Stewart is now foreman of the Cannonball, where the force was recently doubled. Two shifts are now
being worked.
Angus K. Stewart iB having the
Shakespeare, adjoining the John
Bull, surveyed.
The No. 3 tunnel on the Mystery
is now in over 40 feet. This makes
over 800 feet of work done on this
property this season.
The John Bull tunnel is now in
135 feet, and is looking better all
the time. The group is being surveyed by Young & Burnet, of Rossland.
Edgar P. Rathbone, the engineer
of tbe B.C. Mercantile & Mining
Syndicate, of Cascade, after examining some Rossland properties,
is now on his way to England.
J. H. Inkster, manager of the
Pontifex Gold Mining Co., operating on Huckleberry mountain,
came in yesterday to meet his foreman. The shaft is now down 65
feet, and other work is being done
also. Some splendid assays have
been obtained from this property.
Much of the ore ie identical with
that of the Republic mine. The
property is only five miles from
Wm. Forrest, road master, has
received word that the government
will allow $250 towards the building of a first-class trail from Gladstone to the Burnt Basin. It will
be built on a wagon road grade,
and the citizens of Gladstone will
put in as much or more than the
government to make it first-class
in every respect. This will be the
first expenditure by the government directly for the benefit of
Will Start Two Papers.
Eber C. Smith, of Rossland Record fame, passed through Cascade
Wednesday, en route Grand Forks
and Phoenix, in both of which
places he proposes starting papers.
In Grand Forks he says he will
soon have a daily, with dispatches
containing the world's news. He
had a car with him containing
printing machinery, paper, etc.
Rails Expected To Be Laid that Far By
that Date.
Grading Finally Completed, Bat There Is Now
a Shortage of Men at the Loaf Ball Dog
Tracklaying has been going on
steadily this last week and today
the steel gang is said to be about
live miles beyond the summit at
Eholt, and on the down grade to
Greenwood, which is but four or
five miles beyond. Just this side
of Greenwood is the long trestle,
which is expected to delay not
more than three or four days when
reached. Therefore, by the end of
next week, or by the 15th, the rails
should be laid into Greenwood���
unless some other delay is experienced.
No tracklaying has yet been done
on the spurs. All work is now
done on the new railway grade.
Mann, Foley Bros. & Larson still
have.track, surfacing, bridge and
tunnel men at work. Considerable trouble has, been experienced
lately to get men for the Bull Dog
tunnel. In this issue of the Record
the firm advertises for machine
men at $3.50 per day, and laborers
at $2.50. Work on all the spurs
is all but completed.
Quite a lot of men have gone to
the Rainy river rqad in Ontario,
where less wages are paid. Contractors Videen and Sangrin are
both there with their outfits, and
both have sent hack word that the
prospects for making anything are
exceeding email. Thus far the
work has been largely of a boulder
and mud character. Men looking
for work will do better to stay
right in the Boundary country,
than seek the evils they know not
Rambles From the Rails.
It is said that one of the largest
water tanks on the line will be
erected at Cascade.
It is getting to be an unusual circumstance when the passenger train
arrives on time. Yesterday it was
only three hours late.
W. H. Landgridge, division auditor of the C. P. R., with headquarters at Revelstoke, visited Cascade
for the first time this week, on
official business.
Only four locomotives, outside
of the three used in tracklaying,
are yet in use hy the C. P. R. on
the Boundary branch. Rolling
stock generally is short.
F. W. Peters, freight agent at
Nelson, who smilingly takes the
kicks from shippers over the high
rates prevalent, went to Winnipeg
this week to consult with higher
officials about the Boundary tariff
to be charged when tbe line is
completed to Midway.
Adjusting tbe Fire Losses.
H. T. Ceperley, president, and F.
W. Rounsefell, secretary of the insurance firm of Ceperley, Mackenzie & Rounsefell,Vancouver,arrived
in town yesterday, for the purpose
of adjusting tbe losses of the fire of
a week ago. Today Mr. Rounsefell
is securing proof of loss for each
one of those who were lucky enough
to be insured. The list includes
Messrs. Eckatorm, VanCleve, Flood
& McDonald and Nelson, Olson A
Bergman. It is expected that Mr.
Rounsefell will take the proofs of
loss with him at once to Vancouver
and send back checks covering the
various amounts of insurance.
Both the Columbia and Nelson &
Vernon telephone companies were
'rendered hors de combat by the Cascade fire, but were in full swing
again at eight the next morning.
Gangs of carpenters are now
working on section houses along
the line.
The Pathfinder has over 400 tona
of ore on the dump.
Water Power Co. is Vigoroasly hskbg
That Big Uodertaiiig.
Contractor Qulnllvaa Is Making the Rick Fly,
sod Foreman Simmons Is Losing No Time
st the Dam Site.
This week Contractor Quinlivan
began the work of blasting away
the rock foundations for the large
power house of the Cascade Water,
Power & Light Co. It will be situated at the foot of the falls, just
to the right of the wagon road, and
several thousand yards of rock will
be moved. He is still looking for
good rock men, and as he expects
also to start on the work of filling
in the dam cribbing with rock
next week, he can easily give steady
work to 40 or 50 more men.
A visit to the dam Bite yesterday
by a Record man showed that Foreman Simmons is letting no grass
grow under his feet. With his
force of 14 men���and he says he
never had a better gang���he has
already built the cribbing about 12
feet higher than before on one side,
and will soon have it an equal
height on the south Bide. He says
he will he ready for Mr. Quinlivan
to begin filling the cribs in a very
few days. Then it will be a scene
of even greater activity.
D. P. Barber, who has the contract for clearing the right of way
for the double pole line from Phoenix south, was in town this week.
He now has 17 men in camp, and
expects to complete his contract in
three or four weeks.
In every way possible it is evident that Sunt. Anderson will push
the work of developing this mighty
water power. THE   CASCADE   RECORD

Columbia TownsHe's  Ex-Manager   Charged
With Serious Crime
Chas. H. Hinckley, in May,
1884, embezzled $97,000 in ciuh
from the West Side Bank, New
York City. He came to Canada,
changed his name to C. S. Morris
and operated considerably in mines
and realty. Last winter he bought
���a $15,000 interest in the Columbia
Townsite Co., and became vice-
president and manager. Later he
sold out his stock, as his management did not give satisfaction to
the townsite people. He then
turned his attention to mining
properties in the Similkameen,
where he has heen all summer.
Meantime, through the Columbia
hotel fire, the hank officials learning
of Hinckley's whereabouts, quietly set about getting him into the
meshes of the American law. He
was arrested and brought to Columbia, where Constable Darraugh
met and took him to Rossland.
He is now there, fighting the extradition proceedings tooth and
nail. The present extradition law
hetween Canada and the United
States took effect in 1890, and it is
a question whether it can be made
retroactive. The case will probably
he carried to Ottawa before it is
finally decided, both sides having
employed the best legal talent.
The prisoner is now in the hands
of a special officer at Rossland,
where the first fight is being made.
The bank has two representatives
in Rossland now, and proposes to
put Hinckley through and introduce hirn to the incide of the New
York state penitentiary if such a
thing is possible.

The acquirement of the water
power on the Kettle river at Cascade by the London & B. C. Gold-
fields, Ltd., is a most fortuitous
circumstance���not only for the
stockholders, but for the Boundary
mines. It means that from now
on the utmost energy will be shown
in the work of harnessing this great
agent and in delivering it cheaply
to the mines. As the majority of
Boundary mines are low grade, it
follows that power for working
them economically is imperative.
This they will be able to get from
the Cascade Water, Power & Light
In a report recently made by the
directors of the London & B. C.
Goldfields, to the ��� stockholders,
reference is made to the prospects
of our water power by Managing
Director Popkiss, as follows:
"Concerning the Cascade falls
power, as this is a scheme which
probably will will be exceedingly
remunerative when carried out,
the necessary amount haB been remitted for the commencement of
the works. In this matter the
promptness of the board is to be
commended, for as the camps of
the Boundary district have no
water available for power, it obviously is the place for the introduction of a cent i al electrical power plant for the pply of motive
power to the mi       md smelters."
It can thus bt >d that, not
only has the needed funds heen
provided to carry the work already
started to a speedy completion, but
that it is expected to supply the
power thus economically generated
to various mines and smelters
throughout the Boundary district.
It is well known that there is
practically no water power in the
Boundary aside from that at Cascade. The Boundary mines must
have cheap power, and they will
get it here. Gigantic bodies of low
grade ore can thus be profitably
worked. The plant will be remunerative because the demand
already exists for this comparatively inexpensive power. Industrial enterprises will also doubtless
follow and locate here in due
course of time, when the demand
for the products in British Columbia is of sufficient volume to warrant the necessary investment.
This time will come as sure as
night succeeds the day.
When fire broke out in the heart
of this young city a few days ago,
no one could tell where the dreaded
flames would stop Fortunately,
through the greatest exertions, it
was confined to the block in which
it started, severe scorching and
broken glass being the extent of
the damage outside the block con*
sumed. While it is doubtful, even
if the city had a water system,
whether the fire could have been
stopped, it is certain that only
precaution saved the rest of the
The lessons to be learned from
the fire are few, but they are of
prime importance. In the first
place every business man should
have some insurance on his stock.
In the largest city, it is foolhardy
not to have partial protection of
this kind. If, in smaller places,
the risk is greater and the premiums higher, it is only the more
reason for seeking such protection
as can be had.
Then, every business man should
have water always ready. A general conflagration, if once under
headway, could not be stopped,
but in its insipient stages a little
water is worth its weight in gold.
Care should be taken in regard to
the disposition of waste and rubbish, and this is of the utmost importance. While some incline to
the incendiary theory for our fire,
no good reason can be advanced
for it, and it may have started
from a smouldering cigar stub or
something of similar character.
There is always danger of fire in
a well-built town. Eternal vigilance, it is well said, is the price of
safety. We have learned our lesson, though attended with a loss of
one life and about $25,000 worth
of property. Let us profit by it,
and take no unnecessary chances
in the future. Cascade will recover, and in due time be better built
than ever. We. must, however,
reduce to the minimum the chances
for such a disastrous recurrence.
Unfortunately, the mining troubles in the Slocan are no nearer
settlement today than three months
ago, and as a rule silence reigns
supreme in those once busy camps.
It's a pity some adjustment of the
difficulty cannot be arrived at.
If Dewey's head is not turned by

Daily Globe, of  Victoria,   found
competition too strong and was
forced to suspend. The Globe
always had the courage of its convictions, and aside from its politics,
was a bright and breezy journal.
Of that kind there are never too
many in the province.
It is given out in eastern papers
that a Dominion election is more
than likely to take place next January. If an appeal to the people
along provincial lines also takes
place, the politicians are likely to
have their hands full this winter.
Already the question is being
argued as to whether the provincial
election shall be conducted along
dominion party lines or not.
The editor of the Record acknowledges receipt of an invitation to
attend the Spokane exposition today, which is editor's day, when
"high jinks" will he the order.
The invitation states that the eight-
hour law has been temporarily
suspended, the police force has
been subsidized, and that a banquet such as the old Romans never
dreamed of will be spread. Apparently the highest kind of jinks
will prevail, and the editor of this
great family journal regrets that a
previous engagement with the paste
pot and scissors prevented his hitting the road to enjoy the feast of

It goes without Baying that Cascade's fire was a serious affair to
those directly affected. With only
$4,450 insurance out of a total loss
of $25,000, it is apparent at a
glance that it was disastrous to
those burned out. Already two of
them, however, nothing daunted,
have begun business once more,
and they were the two whose loss
was total, not saving more than
the clothes on their backs. This is
pretty good evidence of their faith
in Cascade���notwithstanding the
remarks of croakers, of which every
town has its share.
The day after the fire, bright and
early, word was received from
Grand Forks, asking if any help
was needed, the extent of loss not
then being known at the Forks.
Fortunately the case was not as
serious as that, as none of the general stores were located in the
burned district. But the thoughtful inquiry was prompt, and will
not soon be forgotten by Cascade's

' However it happened, Cascade
has no display of ore samples at
the Spokane exposition, and in the
undeveloped state of the district
this was a mistake. There is plenty of Canadian and American capital lying idle in the east, that is
only waiting for the right kind of
openings for investment. These
openings can be found here. It is
a pity that more effort is not taken
to bring buyer ana seller together.

Cascade's awful fire, in which
one man lost his life and $25,000
worth of property, including some
ten buildings, was utterly destroyed, happened a week ago, and nothing now remaing but a block of
blackened ruins. Ihe property
destroyed was one of the busiest
sections of the town, and it is likely that in due course of time it will
be built up once more.
The ruins smoked for four or
five days after the blaze went out.
Some pilfering was done after
the fire, but not as much as might
be expected.

buildings were saved by the prompt
work done on the Cascade Drug
Co's store.
Mrs. S. A. Crowell, fortunately
being at the end of the burned
block, saved nearly everything,
even to carpets, etc.
There were many losses of personal effects not enumerated in the
general list, which brings the total
loss fully up to $25,000.
Cascade's first hotel was located
in the two-story log building, back
of the Montana, which also went
down in the sea of flame.
Mrs. W. M. Wolverton saw the
fire from her window when she
says two pailfuls of water would

The Chinese cook at the Grand

out to safety, and left $70 in money

While many believe the conflagration was of incendiary origin,

No Possible Doubt of Their Being Vast Bodies
ol Pay Ore oa the Christina Slope, Directly Tributary to Cascade.
Shamrock mountain has undoubtedly an immense body of
gold-copper ore. Those familiar
with this camp, which is directly
tributary to Cascade, are well
aware of fhis. This week the publisher of the Record visited old
Shamrock, to see for himself some
of the immense ledges found there.
From the railway siding at Sutherland creek an old trail leads up
the mountain, and a couple of
miles up forks, one branch taking
one to Ihe A!ph<>n��e and the other
to the Elmore and other well known
The first important claims visited was the Alphonse, owned by
Al, Pion, after whom the property
was named. The appearance of
this claim was an agreeable sur-
rise, its gigantic fine grained iron
ledge, carrying copper pyrites, having been uncovered for 30 or 40
feet, and a shaft having been Bunk
25 feet. While assays are said to
be low yet, there is every evidence
of thin property turning out to be
a most valuable one.
Passing the Ski, the Beach with
its well timbered shaft, the Elmore,
the pride of the camp was reached.
In our estimation the Elmore,
owned by the Belcher Gold Mining
Co., of which Frank Hutchinson is
president, and Smith Curtis, Manager, has not been overrated. A
body of magnetic iron and copper
has been uncovered 72 feet on the
surface, the ledge having a northeast hy southwest strike through
the claim. Several shafts have
been sunk, one of which is down
35 feet and has a' 20-foot crosscut.
Assays give over $17 in gold and
The Shamrock and Thistle, owned hy D. C. Beach, C. S. Wallis,
R. Dalby Morkill, Jr., and John Y.
McKane are also splendid properties and have yielded some of the
highest grade ore yet found on
Shamrock mountain.
Development all over Shamrock
mountain has been uniformly
most encouraging to holders of
claims. The ore from these properties is wanted hy smelters, and
the day is not far distant wben a
large tonnage will he supplied from
the gigantic veins with which the
mountain is covered.
The vein on the Morrison, in
Deadwood camp, at a depth of 220
feet is 96 feet wide and drifting
east and west will be pushed with
vigor. Several hundred tons of
ore, removed during the crosscut-
tidg of the vein, has been piled on
the dump. A 10-drill compressor
has been contracted for, but owing
to prior orders will not be delivered
in less than three months.

The railway graders have made
