 THE CASCADE RECORD
Published (a the Interests of the Boundary and Christina Lake  Mining Districts
Vol. I.
CASCADE, B. C, AUGUST 19, 1899.
No. 41.
FAMOUS MN1N6 ENGINEER
Mr. Rathbone Makes Cascade His Basis
of Operations in Boundary.
HAS INFLUENCED MILLIONS OF MONEY
Already Has Somclatercsti Here���Oreat Con-
IMeaee la Cascade-Will Look Info the
Mlalaf Properties of the District.
Edgar P. Rathbone, a mining
engineer of 25 years practical experience, arrived in Cascade last
Monday direct from London, England, and for a month or two will
make this city his headquarters.
He gave a Record representative
dame interesting details of his experience in mining, and an 'outline
of his plans for the future. If the
personal investigations he will make
of the mining camps surrounding
Cascade meet with his approval, it
is safe to say that his .coming will
prove to be a most fortunate event,
as Mr. Rathbone is in close touch
with many of the wealthiest syndicates of the old world.
Mined In Every Cltae.
Mr. Rathbone has made mining
and smelting a practical business
since he was 18 years of age., In
the last 26 years he has visited and
personally inspected the best mines
jn every American mining state, in
South and Central America, in
Bant, West and South Africa, and
in every mining district of British
Columbia���including Cassiar. the
coast, Boundary, Slocan and Knot*
enay. Eor two years he was mining inspector for the Boer government in the Transvaal, having
control of some 50,000 men working under ground, and being the
only Englishman ever given an
important office by the Boers.
' It can thus be noted that he is
amply able to judge fairly of mining properties and without bias,
being withal a hard beaded man of
business and sagacity, who loves
his profession. Th�� fact that Lord
Dufferin and Wittaker Wright took
his advice, after his careful and exhaustive examination, and pur-
chased the great Le Roi mine for
$3,000,000 cash, is evidence of his
standing with the London capital-
1 ists. On this trip he has commissions to examine and report on a
number of prominent Rossland
mines, owned by the B. A. C. the
idea being to form "pups," or sub-
sidary corporations, for their development.
Cascade's Strategical Position.
Three years"jigov Mr>. Rathbone
was all through the . Boundary
country for the first time, and he
says that Cascade is now better
built and on a more substantial
footine than nny Boundary town
��ai then. In fact he was greatly
��Urpri��ed to note the many evidences of permanency found here,
When he expected to find a log
town like. Russell or like Greenwood three years ago.
Mr. Rathbone has studied the
smelting situation thoroughly ' ho
far as Cascade is concerned, has
avenues to the head sources of information, and is in touch with the
powers that be along this and
other lines. He logically argues
out that, without tbe possibility of
a doubt, from its very situation,
and advantageous location as regards power, water, lime, downhill
hauls, etc, there is certain to be
geat reduction works right here
with hearing of the roaring cascades of Kettle river. Not only is
he assured of. this by ordinary,
common sense reasoning, but he
has it from those in authority that
this is a part of the now settled
policy of the C. P. R., outlined a
couple of years or more ago. The
assured economical operation of
such an institution here is also one
of the greatest factors in its favor.
Will Examine Christina Properties.
One important object of Mr.
Rathbone's visit to this particular
pection at this time is to carefully
examine the mineral conditions
and possibilities of the Christina
lake camps, which he has not before looked over. While, in his
modesty, he does not claim to have
untold millions of ready cash at
his back, yet for propositions that;
he can conscientiously recommend,1
he has the confidence of the.leaders
of the greatest financial center of
the world. He wilt spend a large
part of the autumn in this work*
and when he returns to London,
will be thoroughly posted in regard
to the best properties and the gen-'
ernl mineral indication of the district.        ;
Thinks Caicade a Sure Winner.
Mr. Rathbone is a member of the
directorate of the British Columbia
Mercantile & Mining Syndicate,
Ltd., of London, England, the
head store and office of which in
thi* province is located in Cascade.
When interviewed by the Record,
he was making up a report of the
business of the concern. He stated
that he was immensely pleased at
the progress the syndicate had
made in the year since it started.
He expressed himself as more than
satisfied and felt confident the
London stockholders would agree,
with him that no better point in
the. Boundary' country could be
found for the headquarters, taking
into consideration the certain
future growth and the development
of the territory tributary to the
city.
Mr. Rathbone is a conservative
man, affable and courteous, and
evidently thoroughly at home in
his chosen profession. He says
that the capital already invested
in British Columbia is a mere drop
in the bucket, compared with the
capital ready when it can he assured of safe investments He is
impressed with the importance of
this city from its geographical position, and it is more than likely
that, the syndicate of which he is a
director will shortly hecome as
mn��h of a factor in our mining
field as it is already in the mercantile field, which is also likely to
be extended considerably.
Second Bridge Oyer Kettle Krer Not Yet
TELE6RAPH OFFICE HERE ^itc.rer Kiu,earetoU
Jack Stewart and Dick Porter
went to Greenwood Thursday ��n
bridge business.
Paymaster Woodman expects to
start out next Monday, distributing July pay checks.
A box car jumped the track on
the switchback the other day, but
was quickly put on again without
serious damage or trouble.
EXPECT TO CEOSS BY NEXT TUESDAY
Freight Is Arriving Every Day Over the New
Road���No Passenger Traffic Yet���Qrad*
ers Here.
"I do not think we will he sufficiently along with this bridge hy
Monday night, so that the tracklayers can get across," said Foreman Campbell to a Record representative this morning. The bridge
referred to is the second crossing of
Kettle river, just west of the town,
where a force of men have been
busy all the week, early and late,
putting the 120-foot Howe truss
span. It will thus he seen that the
track-layers cannot start on their
ten-mile stretch to the next bridge
before Tuesday.
William Mackie, of Robson', who
has the sub-contract from Porter
Bros. & McArthur, for putting in
the spans all along the line, has
had his force of expert bridge builders on the work since the rails were
laid to it last Sunday, and last
night the men were working by the
light of the silvery moon. Excellent progress has been made, hut it
is no small job.
In the meantime the; 1500-foot
sidetrack has been laid in the Cascade yards, besides several spurs,
the enirfar.iriggang has got to town
and the track is generally being
put in first-class condition for heavy
���raffie.
C. P. R. Telegraph Office Here.
Thomas Kelly, foreman of the
telegraph builders, with a dozen assistants, brought their boarding
car into town this week, and expects to he here for a couple of
weeks. The poles have been set
and two No. 8 galvanized wires
stretched into town, so that direct
telegraphic connection can now he
had with the rest of the world. The
instruments were connected up this
afternoon, and for the present the
office will be at the shed at the sidetrack, with Agent Huckerby as the
manipulator of lightning.
It is not probable that tickets
will be sold oyer the new lii.e for
some little.time yet, as the road
must first be inspected by the government. However, travellers are
coming in and going out daily, taking chances on a seat on a gravel
car or on the smooth sideof a bridge
timber. It was rumored around
town that a mixed train would he
put on tomorrow, but it could not
be verified at the office of the contractors. Freight has been coming
in every day, and the volume is increasing.
Rnmbles Prom the Ralls.
Freight is being hauled to Gladstone, as well as Cascade.
The surfacing gang came into
town Tnesday���128 men strong.
The two 150-foot spans  in   the
Six locomotives are now employed by the contractors in moving
construction trains and freight.
More will be put on shortly.
, V. Monnier & Co. received a car
of Pabst beer over the new line
Thursday, and A. H. Sperry A Co.,
of Greenwood, got a ci r of Calgary
flour.
Lightning struck a rail in the
hands of the steel gang several
days ago, and for a time they were
dazed. Some of the men did not
resume work till the next day.
C. P. R. Agent E. R. Ridpath. of
Robson, was in town Wednesday,
en route in. He will probably he
promoted to the agency at either
Grand Forks or Greenwood.
It is said by a prominent engineer that President Sbauahnesey
says the Columbia-Grand Forks
station is to be called Upper Grand
Forks, because that is what it really is. -
ThedopolbuircrersffiT7pm up
neat stations at Shield's Landing
and the Summit. Gladstone is
next in line, and then will follow
Cascade. At present a hoard
shanty is in use here.
Over 100 feet a week, or fifteen
lineal feet daily, are being made in
3,000-foot Bull Dog tunnel, near
Brooklyn. Considerably more than
half of the distance has been bored,
and 800 men are now employed.
Broke Throngh the Corduroy.
The pressing need of the repairs
to government roads was shown
yesterday when a freighter's wagon
broke completely through the corduroy on, hill just above the bridge
that crosses Kettle river at this
place. The stringers were rotted
through. Wm. Forrest, who has
charge of the road repairs, is putting it in good shape, putting on
new. heavy planking throughout,
but says the appropriation of $550,
betwoen here and the Forks, will
hardly touch the worst needed repairs. The chances are good for
the government tn have damages
to pay one of these fine days.
The Cascade Sawmill Co. has
been sending, considerable finish*
ing lumber to the Forks of late, to
assist in building up that lively
burg. The lath machine at this
mill has a long run ahead of it.
John Dorsey was down from
Phoenix Thursday to see about
licenses for his two hotels, to be
called the Hartford and Brooklyn,
on claims of tbe same name. He
thinks Phoenix is all right.

UNRAVELING THE SITUATION.
The Republic Pioneer last week
contained an article, in which a
prominent Canadian was quoted as
saying that it waa confidently asserted that it was the intention of
the C. P. R. to build down from
Carson or Midway to Republic
next spring. It was further stated
that the Great Northern, which
had this year made elaborate surveys up the San Poil from Wilbur
to Eureka camp, had suddenly
changed its mind and decided not
to build a railway line to Republic
This it was believed, was in accordance with a perfect understanding hetween the two companies as
to traffic and territorial extension
and occupation in this section.
The idea, of course, of the C. P. R.
is to secure a lion's share of the
heavy tonnage of the great American mining camp, in which so
much Canadian capital has been
invested, and where the likelihood
is that more capital will go.
But the Great Northern, it is
safe to assume, will not give up
this rich field without a quid pro
quo. In other words, that corporation must receive equivalent advantages elsewhere. A few weeks
ago the Record published an article
on this subject, stating that the
building of a line from Northport,
up Flat and Deep creeks to Cascade, was a part of this program,
and we have had no reason to re-
ceede from this opinion. Railway
snrveyors have been quietly working in that section for weeks, and
have found good grades around
Sulphide mountain, where promising claims are fast getting to the
shipping stage.
The exact details of the C. P. R.-
Great Northern arrangement are
of course not made public, as railway companies, any more than in-
dividuahi, do not hunt ducks with
a brass band. The chances are,
however, that both lines will be
built by the Great Northern, under
the agreement, letting each company do the hauling on its own
side of the international boundary
line.       	
A gentleman recently returned
from Ottawa tells the Winnipeg
Tribune that there are rumors to the
effect that British Columbia may
be given representation in the cabinet at no distant date, and the
likely man is Mr. Hewitt Bostock.
NOTE AND COMMENT.
It's a poor sort of a Boundary
town nowadays that cannot trot
out a smelter Btory of some kind.
The Rossland Miner thinks that
the chances of the Semlin government being wrecked are still
hopeful,   There are others.
The attempted assassination of
Matre Laborie, chief counsel for
Captain Dreyfus, on trial at Ren-
nes, France, charged with delivering military secrets to foreigners,
will not work its intended end.
Dreyfus, undoubtedly has the sympathy of the great majority.
''Hands up" seems to be a familiar sound in towns across the line.
At Northport and Republic this
week, in prominent resorts, the injunction was followed by immediate compliance���followed by good
hauls by the robbers. A little
British justice would be a good
thing over there.
The prospects of war with Oom
Paul in the Transvaal seem to
brighten with every fresh dispatch.
The wily Boer is getting ready for
the fray, but there can be only one
result. The Queen agrees with her
advisors that the Uitlanders must
be given fair play, and will see
that they get it, whatever the cost.
The late editor of the Grand
Forks Miner referred to that grow-
town as the heart of the Boundary
country. The new editor of the
same weekly speaks of it as the
gateway. If the paper has another
change of editors, Grand Forks
will probably be the entire Boundary country. Some people have
queer ideas of the eternal fitness
of things.
The wish is evidently father of
the thought, as is shown when the
Greenwood Times asserts that the
C. P. R. will erect smelting works
in the Boundary country, "most
probably on Boundary creek." A
plentiful water supply is a prime
requisite for such an undertaking,
and unfortunately Boundary cteek
does not fill the bill in this regard
���as acknowledged by all competent engineers.
"Troubles never come singly,"
says the old adage. Joe Martin,
ex-attorney-general, has been suspended by the Benchers of Law
Society, of Victoria, for one week,
the suspension to take place October 1, for practicing champerty.
Mr. Martin did not deny the
charge.. In Manitoba taking a
case on contingent fee 1b not for*
bidden, but it is different in British
Columbia, as Joe is finding out.
Under the heading, "Boundary
Railroad���Trains Now Running
into Grand Forks," last Sunday's
Nelson Miner has the following
misleading bit of information, ap
parently   furnished    by    Freight
Agent F. W. Peters:
General Agent F. W. Peters, of
the C. P. R., yesterday received a
notification from Engineer Tye
that the Penticton branch of the
Columbia & Western railway, was
open to Grand Forks, and the accumulation of freight at Nelson,
that has been awaiting the opening
of the road, will now go forward at
a rapid rate."
The road is open only as far as
Cascade, Mr. Peters to the contrary
notwithstanding. The Miner editor must have imbibed some of
that wonderful spring witter recently discovered near Grand
Forks.    	
MARVELOUS TRACK-LAYINO MACHINE.
Nephew of the Inventor Tells a Record Maa
all About It
One of the most remarkable
things about railroad building is
the patented track-laying machine
used, with the aid of which the
steel is laid with wonderful rapidity with the mininum of cost.
George Roberts, who is running
the machine now in the Cascade
yards, gave a Record representative some interesting details in regard to it.
The Roberts track-layer was invented by George Roberts, an uncle
of the present operator, in 1887,
and was first used in that year by
the Northern Pacific near Spokane.
It was made by the inventor and
shortly after *old to the Ban Francisco Bridge To. Wm. Anderson,
of Cascade, the present superintendent of the Cascade Water
Power Co., was then in the employ
of the bridge company, and made
the first drawings and plans of the
machine. The track-layer was
later sold to J. H. Roberts, a
brother of the present operator, who
is now the owner of the patents
and the machines.
At present there are only five of
these machines in use���one each
in Dakota, Arkansas, Idaho (Nelson & Bedlington) and Arizona.
Under the most favorable circum-.
stances a machine will lay from
two to two and a half miles of
steel daily, including the needed
ties, requiring from 90 to 100 steel
handlers, tie buckers and spikers.
They easily handle 1000 feet per
hour. So far the machines have
heen made in Seattle.
��� The operation of the machine is
interesting to a layman. It consists of an upright Nagel engine,
made in Erie, Pa., of 16 h-p, and
is placed on the front end of an
ordinary flat car, getting its steam
from the locomotive that is pushing the steel and tie cars. A tram
with live rollers runs from the tie
cars to the front, and on the other
side a similar tram brings forward
the steel rails. Both sets of live
rollers are controlled with levers
hy the engineer of the track-lryer,
who can stop them at any desired
point. Men on the flat cars tumble the steel and ties into their
respective, trams; the machines
doing the rest until they are seized
by several gangs in front, who
place ties and rails, and bolt the
latter together with lightning
(���peed. The distribution of the tie*
in front saves little time, if nny,
as the machine must run just the
same, and the tie and steel gangs
vie with each other in keeping up.

BY THE WAYSIDE
With the recent change in the
management of the Columbia Stage
Co., Neil McCallum has become
manager. It is to he hoped that
he will at once inaugurate some reforms in the running of that concern, and firstly discharge the first
driver that persists in the oft-repeated offenci* of not leaving the
mail sacks at the Cascade post-
office. Otherwise, he will undoubtedly hear from it, and quickly.
'Another reform that should be
made instanter is the delivering of
the expense bills to consigner!
with all goods received from the
Great Northern Express Co. It is
the right of every addressee to get
these hills, and besides it would
exonenite the stage company from
the cliarge of collecting exorbitant
rates for the railway part of the
haul. Mr. Cooper, the Bossburg
agent, backed up by the heretofore
incompetent management of the
stage line,: has. absolutely refused
to give up these expense hills���to
the untold'annoyance-, and vexation of all shippers. Here is a
chance for Mr. Galium to regain
some friends for his company.   -
Since trje article iri another column, on school matters was put, in

John Keoush, the mining man
of Colville, Wash., has been in
Cascade for the past few days,
looking after interests in this section. Mr. Keough was one of the
first prospectors in the vicinity of
what is now known as Summit
camp, and was the original locator
of the famous B. C. mine; He sold
the B. G. under bond to E.H. Harrison for $60,000, who disposed of
it last winter for $300,000, to a
syndicate of Canadian capitalists,
represented by Major R. G. Edwards- Leckie. Mr. Keough owns
several properties in Summit camp
as well as on different parts of the
reservation. He is also the proud
possessor of a fine farm, four miles
east of Colville.
The recent death of Theo Krui
per, collector of customs at Oeooyoe
lake,'removes one of the oldest citizens of this part of the country
Mr, Kruger came to the Okanogan
country in 1859 from California,
entered the service of the��Hudson
Bay Co., and was for many years
one of their most trusted employes",
and for the past nine years has
been collector of customs. He had
attained the ripe-age of 74 years,
and leaves a wife and four children, the youngest being 15 years.
Mr. Kruger was one of the four
men that came tn this part of the
country 40 years ago, they being
himself, Frank Richter. "Okanog.
an" Smith and John McDonald.
McDonald and Richter are still
living,.hale and hearty.
Probably these four men, if a
full history of the past forty years
were written of northern Washington and southern British Columbia,
would figure to a> larger extent
than all the other present residents. Mr, Kruger's life has been
a long and honorable one, he being universally respected by all.

FIVE EVANOBLISTS HERB.
HeMloi Nightly Meeting! la Caicade School
Horn.
Five men came to town late last
week with a complete camping
outfit, embracing wagon and team,
tents, stove etc. The names of
these gentlemen are R. E. Owens,
a student of Allegheny theological
seminary; G. F. Swan of Portland
Jos. Blussou and Frank Dickson
of Spokane, the latter being the
evangelist in charge. On their
way to Republic, while holding
service at the town of Silver, they
met Lieutenant Thomas Lavery,
who assisted them there, and came
on to Republic. Lavery for a
number of years did successful
mission work in Chicago; also
evangelistic work with Ben Hogan,
in Spokane. He is a war veteran,
has many a thrilling story to tell
of his experiences and is proud of
the scars which he received while
fighting for his country. Mr.
Dickson held successful meetings
last summer in Brooklyn.
The gentlemen will remain here
for a few days longer, and will continue their nightly meetings in the
school house. They have pitched
camp at Christina lake.
The Unit ot Copper.
In response to an inquiry as to
what constitutes the "unit" of copper the Denver Post prints the following:
"The unit of weight is 20 pounds,
avoirdupois. It is 1 per cent of
copper in the ore and 1 per cent of
a ton, 2000 pounds, is 20 pounds.
Each ��jer cent of copper contained
in the ore is equal to as many
units. Ore carrying 50 per cent of
copper (or 50 unit's,) if copper, for
example, is quoted at $4 per 100
pounds, is worth 80 cents per unit,
and fifty times eighty equals $40 a
ton.
"For each decline or rise of 5
cents in the quotation a deduction
or addition of 1 per cent should he
made. If the quotation is $3.95
then 1 per cent from the price (80
cents) should be taken, making 79
cents the settlement price, and so
ot! down to what ever the quotation may be.
"If the ore is quoted, for exam-
?le, at $3.75, 5 cents from 80 leaves
5 cents per unit, and ore carrying
50 per cent copper would amount
to 50x75, equaling in value $37.50
per ton."
CASCADE SCHOOL MATTERS.
Instructor Matheson Began Work Last Mob-
toy.
Cascade's puhlic school was opened last Monday, according to schedule, and D. J. Matheson, the teacher
who gave excellent satisfaction last
year, is again in charge.   On ap-
Elication of the trustees his salary
as been slightly increased.
The trustees are advised by the
department at Victoria that patent
seats for the new school building
to he erected here, have been ordered from the east.
ft is expected that the award of
the contract for building the new
school house, will he made by the
department at any time, the bids
having been sent in last week, and
a reply expected daily. The building will be commodious and large
enough for all needs for a year or
two at least. It will be located
almost opposite the new Presbyterian church building.
New Postage Stamps Soon.
It is said that the color of the
domestic-rate postage stamp, as
prescribed by the universal postal
union, is red and is intended to replace the issue of the ordinary two-
cent purple stamps as soon as the
present supply is exhausted.
Thereafter, the Canadian postal
department will issue two-cent
stamps in red, first, however surcharging down to two cents the
universal three-cent stamp in red,
now in possession of the department. As soon as the supply of
such surcharged stamps is exhausted, the department will commence
using the new red two-cent stamps.
It is expected that the new red
stamps will be issued in a few
days.
