No. 27.
Preparation! for the Celebration are Now In
Excellent Shape.
During the-last week  (he plans
for the successful  carrying out of
the details fur I he Queen's hirthdav
celebration, to he held in Cascade,
a week from next Wednesday-have
beeri -crystallizing   rapidly.      In
addition to the treasurer,  W.  A.
Milne, getting ill a  large  part of!
the   subscriptions,    there   was   a
general meeting of the  meniliers of
iiialiy-of the committees   held on |
Wednesday evening.to consult with '
the finance committee in   regard to
pushing preparations for the celebration.
At this meeting the list of events
to he held was outlined, a synopsis
of which will he found on page four
of this issue of the Record, with
the prizes which it was decided to
award to each event. A detailed
prograiv will he published a day
or two before the celebration takes'
From the indications there will
he some good horse racing, as
Republic and Rossland have heen
heard from in this matter, and'it
is said that Grand Forks has some
speedy horseflesh. The prizes of
$150 on this event should bring a
string of fast animals.
A letter was received from Bossburg, saying that the base ball nine
of that town was figuring on coming. It is hoped that a match can
be arranged with the nine from the
Forks. If not, the local hall tossers
will put up a strong fight for the
prize. There is said to he some
crack players in Cascade. While
the wet weather this week has, to
a certain extent, prevented much
practice, the work of getting the
diamond in shape has been going
on steadily. ��� The grounds are
located near the house of Rev. J.
McCoy, back of the first rise.
The proposal was. made that the
hotel men of Cascade challenge the
hotel keepers of Grand Forks to a
tug of war, with probably eight
men to a side. Cascade has some
husky landlords, and if those from
the Forks are more so, they will be
good ones indeed.
In the rock-drilling contest, it is
required that at least a 20-inch
hole be made in the 15 minutes
allotted. As there are many rock
men in these parts, this will he an
interesting event.
The Indian horse race, poriy
race, bicycle race, freighters race,
prospectors race and fat men's
race will doubtless hive their, enthusiasts, while the miscellaneous
sports and Caledonian games are
not forgotten.
The races will take place on
First avenue, which will he cleared
for the occasion. Those intending
to enter for the events should send
word to the secretary without
The Bossburg Cornet Band will
play for all games and events, and
will be present all day. It is expected that many will avail themselves of the opportunity also to
enjoy a steamboat ride on Christina lake.
In the Milling Field
The Burnt Basin still continues
to lie, to a large extent, the centre
of mining operations in this vicinity, and each week sees some move
of importance in respect to some
of the free gold prospects in that
favored region. Within a few
days the representatives of two of
the most influential corporations
operating in British Columbia,
have been into the Burnt Basin
examining some well known properties, chief of ; which was the
Mother Lode. This group, which
is now being opened up by a force
of men under Mike Shick, was
visited by Major R. J. Edwards
Leokie, on behalf of the New Gold
Fields of British Columbia! Sir
Charles Tu'jper's company ; and
also by Frank Oliver for the. British
America Corporation.
While neither of these well known
experts cared to express themselves
for publication, it was evident to
their intimate friends that they
were mere than pleased with the
result, of their investigations; It
is believed that some important
announcement will be made before
long in this connection.
of this city, visited the Burnt
Basin and set a force of men at
work on the Monitor, a claim in
which he is interested. He thinks
he has a good thing, and proposes
til find out just what there is in the
Oreat Chamberlain Strike.
Frank Hutchison has been working on the Chamberlain group on
McRae creek for some little time,
always confident that he had a
good thing. This belief was confirmed this week when he received
a $229 assay from a sample of rock
he had brought from the hottom of
the shaft. T. F. Carden, the Cascade assayer, gave .11 oz. of gold
and 15 oz, silver as returns, and;
he is known as a conservative,
careful assayer.      -
Mr. Hutchinson, who is sole1
owner of the group,.informs the
Record that he haw a! good sized
ledge, with well defined walls. The
group is located about three miles
from English Point, on McRae
creek, and was located last year hy
Hutchinson and Reid. Appearances would indicate that there is
the making of a mine in the Chamberlain, and Mr. Hutchinson will
exploit it further.
The force of men that has been
at work on the Ennismore, in the
Basin, has been set at work on the
Mystery group, another promising
set of claims.';
Thos. G. Elgie, who is working
the. Pleasures of Hope claim, in the
Burnt Basin,spent several days in
the city this week. He has a
most favorable opinion of the
In many places there is si ill considerable show in the Burnt Basin,
and as yet development cannot be
carried on to the best advantage.
But it is now going rapidly, and.
the creeks are rising in consequence.
Last Tuesday Chas. H. Thomas
Made Chief License Inspector for Rouland
Last Tuesday Constable D. J.
Darraugh, of Cascade, received
official notice from, the government
that he had been appointed chief
license inspector for the whole of
Rossland riding outside of incorporated.towns. The other members of the board are T. W. Coleman, of Trail, and E .Jnckohs, .of
Midway, thi.se two towns being on
the extreme eastern and western
limits of the riding.
The last legislature passed a new
act regulating the granting of
liquor licenses, a synopsis of which
was printed in last week's issue of
the Record. These appointment
were made under the provisions of
that law. The.new act is quite
strict in its requirements, but of
course, as usual, much is left to the
discretion of the hoard of license
commissioners The act requires
that applicants for a license shall
send the same, with a. fee of $10 to
Victoria before the 15th of May or
the 15th of November, receipt of
which will be acknowledged. When
the.'applications are passed oh,
they are sent to the licensing board
which meet* at a time and place
arranged by the chief inspector.
Cascade, beiig the most central
place in the riding, will doubtless
he selected as the point for meeting, to'take place some time in
June; *'���   /
The names of all applicants'for
licenses are required to be adver
tised by the chief inspector in a
local   paper, at   least two   weeks
before they take effect.
During the week Mr. Darraugh
has been busily engaged in making
out the applications for many of
the 20 hotel proprietors who have
houses in Cascade, Gladstone and
other nearby points. Outlying
hotels hereafter must pay a license
of $100 annually instead of $60 as
formerly. In towns the license fee
remains $200 per year. All those
to whom licenses are granted must
give bonds to the amount of $500.

Prof. J. W. Watkins, of Bossburg, leader of the band, will give
a choice concert iu the Cascade

people, as his entertainment is
said to be excellent.
Engineer Englund and a force
of fourteen men went over to Grand
Forks, on Wednesday, to run lints
for a spur to a proposed smelter
site. The work was completed in
two days, and: the force returned
to camp in Cascade. Only preliminary lines were run, as has
heen done previously at a number
of proposed smelter sites.
This week the Kettle river has
been rising rapidly. In one day
it came up over three feet,. and a
solid avalanche of water six feet in
depth ov measurement, ij now
pouring over the new dam of the
power company above the falls. No
fear is felt for the safety of that
structure, as it is weighed down
with hundreds of tons of rocks.
New Location lor Post Office. .
Postmaster Cameron this week
has been pushing work as fast as
possible on the new building to be

Now on the Sixth Contract
E. F. Burns, of the contracting
firm of Burns & Jordan, was in
Cascade Wednesday. His firm

sub-contract near Green wood, which
is the sixth piece of the work they
have undertaken on this line. Two
pieces were on Lower Arrow lake,
one above Gladstone, one below
the same town, one above Grand
Forks, and the present contract.
Besides this Rums & Jordan also
have two miles from Foley Bros. &
Larson on the Great Northern, at
Trinidad, Wash., where Mr. Jordan is in charge.
Mr. Bums, like the majority of
railway men, appreciates the reliable character of the news contained in the Record, and while
here had his name added to the
constantly growing subscription

Myrtle B. Making Regular Trips.
The steamer Myrtle B. is now
making regular trips on Christina
lake from Moody's landing to English Point, leaving the former
point at 10 a.m., daily, and arriving at the same place on the return
trip at 2 p.m. On Sundays special
excursions will be run to the head
of the lake.
Messrs. Matheson and Levalley,
the owners of the Myrtle B., are
now getting a barge ready for
transporting horses or merchandise.
It will l>e 13x36 feet, and will be
very useful now that the wagon
road through the swamp is impassible, the corduroy being afloat
in several feet of water. As soon
as the Moody bridge is altered so
as to permit its passage, the Myrtle
B. will run down Christina creek
to Cascade.

Peter Larson, of the firm of Mann,
Foley Bros ,& Larson, whose headquarters are in Cascade, has purchased three lots in Browne's addition, Spokane's fashionable sub-
erb, and will at once commence
the erection of a handsome residence. On its completion he will
remove his family from Helena to
Spokane. The price of the property was $6,100. Mr. Larson, in
addition to being one of the most
prominent contractors in the
Pacific northwest is an extensive
mine owner in the Coeur D'Alenes
and elsewhere.
Moody Bridie to be Rslied.
At the adjourned meeting of the
Cascade Taxpayers' Association,
held last Tuesday evening, considerable routine business was
. The sum of $25 was voted toward" changing the Moody bridge
over Christina creek, so that the
steamer Myrtle B. can come down
to Cascade. A committee consisting of Messrs. Ferguson, Rochussen
and Chandler was appointed to
see those interested on the lake in
the matter.
A communication from the Rossland Board of Trade was read in
regard to sending delegates to a
Board of Trade convention, to be
held this season.
It is stated that Constable Gar-
dom, of Midway has handed in
his resignation.
Any person requiring dressmaking or family sewing can now
secure the services of a competent
dressmaker right here in Cascade.
Inquire at Francis & Milne's store.;
Oats are selling at five cents per
pound in Midway and are not
plenty'at that stiff price.
Dr. S. B. Richards, the government veterinary inspector for the
Boundary district, located in Cascade, is keeping close watch for
cases of glanders among the many
horses passing Boundarywards.
The Flyer stage is crowded both
ways on nearly every trip. When
it first started, and reached Grand
Forks from a half hour to an hour
ahead of the old line, it was received with cheers by the people of
the Forks. Attention is called to

A prospector was nearly drowned
on Tuesday in the swamp through
which the Brooklyn wagon road,
east of Christina lake runs Thecor-
duroy for a distance of several hundred yards is afloat in four or more
feet of water, and his horse had to
swim. The road will probably be
impassible for a couple of months,
necessitating the use of the steamer
Myrtle B. on the lake.
Jas. H. Lowe, formerly provincial constable at Kelowna on
Lake Okanagan, but who lost his
job because he did not wish to
move to Gladstone with his wife and
two weeks old child, was in Cascade
last Sunday. He is now travelling

most successful concern. While
here he made a contribution for
his firm to the prizes for the

And Then Lost no Time In Crosslnf the
Boundary Line.
Frank Provost is pretty slick,
and now that he is across the line
is probably chuckling over the
successful forgery committed here.
If brought back, however, hestands
a good chance of getting free board
and lodging at Kamloops for about
five years.
Provost had a logging contract
with Lynch & Earle, of the Cascade Sawmill Co. Ed. Oulet was
working for him and Robert Ban-
ford was interested in the contract
with him. Provost secured a time
check for $22 from Lynch & Earle,
payable to Oulet, and coldly writing the hitter's name on the back,
got Jamej Morrill to cash it. Then
he skipped across the line. The
forgery was discovered, and after
the bird had flown, a warrant was
sworn out for his arrest. Provost
also owed Banford $100, and a
second warrant was placed in the
hands of Constable Darraugh.
Morril succeeded in getting Lynch
<fc Earle to cash the time check
before the forgery was discovered.
In the meantime Mr. Provost is
safe out of harm's way in Spokane
or elsewhere, unless the provincial
government takes the matter up.
Work on the Long Bridge.
About 50 men are now employed
in the construction of the 1000-foot
railway bridge, to span Kettle
river just east of Cascade. They
are in charge of two foremen, one
for the framers and the other
putting the timbers in place. On
the west end, out as far as the
span, the three decks of bents have
been erected, and are partly up on
the east end. The two spans over
the river proper will not be put in
at present, as some of the long
sticks must come from the coast,
but a temporary substitute will be
used. No serious trouble has yet
occurred from the high water now
coming on.

Frank Corte, the Brooklyn mail
carrier, who came iu. Thursday
night, says that the tracklaying

puzzled as to how he is to get
through the swamp, near La valley's
it being now exceedingly dangerous.

A citizen of Cascade, while in
Rossland recently, interviewed
Gold Commissioner Kirkup in regard to improvements in roads and
trails in the Christina lake district
���a part of Rossland riding. Mr.
Kirkup was surprised to learn that
Government Agent Norris of Vernon had stated that this section
was now out of Yale, as far as road
repairs went, and that Rossland
riding's appropriation would have
to be shared by this section. It
would thus appear that we were
kicked out of one by the late government and had not yet fully
gotten into the other.
Last year not a dollar was spent
on much needed repairs on the
Dewdney trail this side of the
summit, and this notwithstanding
that there was ample funds, according to Mr. Kirkup's statement,
available in his territory. Evidently he was not apprised that he
should do work this side of the
mountain range, and this part of
Eastern Yale was the sufferer.
Mr. Kirkup states, however���
and his word is recognized everywhere as good as his bond���that
he will ascertain his position as
regards this part of the riding at
Once, and will devote a proper
share of the appropriation for the
entire riding to needs this side of
the summit.
Thus far, with the exception of
the Dewdney trail, built many
years ago, not a dollar has been
spent by the government in new
roads, trails or bridges in this section. They have all been constructed at private expense and by
private labor by the pioneers of
this region. It iB high time that
the government gave assistance,
and the Record believes that Mr.
Kirkup will see that justice is
done. Just now repairs on the
Brooklyn wagon road, near La-
valley's are greatly needed, in addition to clearing oUt and straightening this end of the Dewdney
The report of Minister of Mines
Hume for 1898, which has just
been issued, is a most comprehensive volume and one full of interest
���especially to ihis section of the
province. It comprises 1230 pages
of detail  about our metalliferous
deposits, and has been carefully
compiled by Mr. Robertson, the
provincial mineralogist. It shows
that the product for the year was a
trifle short of 111,000,000. In all
probability the report for 1899 will
show a decided increase. As the
new railway will assist the Boundary in its output, this section
should make a good showing in
1899 issue.
The Rossland Record pauses to
exclaim : The newspaper business
is the onlv business that everybody
understands. We do not know
how the secret gets out in every
village, town and city in the world.
The office boys must give it away.
However, the cat is out of the bag
and there is no use denying it.
The man who carries in the wood
and coal, will stop his work to tell
you how to do it. Every business
house in every town has someone
about it who knows all about how
a newspaper should be run. It
makes us sad to think about it,
but we suppose it will ever be thus.
Our member, Mr. Bostock, is
now mourning over the death of a
measure introduced by him in the
Dominion parliament, by which
railway companies Would have
been obliged to furnish free passes
to members of parliament, and
senators. The argument was advanced that, us the majority of
members travel on passes anyway,
the measure would work no hardships on the transportation companies. The premier, howfver,
did not think the act a wise one,
and as tvost of the members agreed
with him, the bill was killed on
its second reading.
At the office of Mann, Foley
Bros. & Larson, the railway contractors, the statement is reiterated
this week that, barring unforeseen
accidents the iron horse will snort
into Cascade some time in June.
As they are laying the track, as
well as grading' the roadbed, they
ought to know. It is said that the
C. P. R. have announced that,
after June lOih, they will haul all
freight into the Boundary country
hy rail to Cascade.
The wash-up et the Yukon for
this year is estimated at $18,000,000
or $20,000,000. British Columbia's
mineral output will probably be a
little less. In Colorado, one camp,
that of Cripple Creek, is turning
out $1,500,000 per month in gold.
And yet these last two are not
made half as much fuss over as is
the over-estimated Klondike. Far
away pastures always have a most
inviting appearance.
The selection of provincial Constable Darraugh, of Cascade, as
chief licensing inspector for Rossland riding, by the provincial government, was a tribute to that
gentleman's abilities. Mr. Darraugh will doubtless perform his
duties fairly and conscientiously.
And now comes a chewing gum

Since the comii.g into effect of
the new provincial license aot, on
April 1st, hotel keepers have been
wondering where they were at, in
regard to renewals and new
licenses. The Record last week
gave particulars of the Act, and
the information received this week
that Cascade's government representative had been appointed chief
inspector for the entire district of
Rossland riding, outside of incorporated cities, will be pleasant
news to Cascade's bonifaces. It
means that the licensing court will
doubtless be held here some time
in June, as being.the most central |
point in the riiling, and that those!
desiring licenses or renewals will \
appear before that court.
Some persons���and they are not
few���labor under the hallucination
that the life of an editor None continual round of ease. Such indi
viduals can see for themselves what
a snap the average publisher enjoys
from the following, taken from an
exchange, w|iich is quite true to
" We apologize for all mistakes
made in previous issues, and say
they, were inexcusable, and that we
ought to know better, as all an
editor has to do is to hunt news,
and clean the rollers and the press,
and set type, and sweep the floor,
and write short items, and fold
papers and make paste, and mail
papers and talk to visitors, and
distribute type and chop wood, and
read proofs and correct mistakes,
and hunt the scissors to write
editorials, and haul water for the
boiler, and rustle advertisements
and job work, arid dodge the bills,
andduii the folks that won't pay
up, and take cussinps from everybody, and tell our subscribers that
we need money."
With the exception of some few
minor details of the program,
everything is now virtually, arranged for the Queen's Birthday
celebration in Cascade. During
this week Treasurer Milne has
called on most of the subscribers,
who have promptly responded, and
that essential feature is actually
provided for. One thing the Record
wotjld call the attention of citizens
to, fparticularly. Between now
and.the 24th every resident of the
town should see that the street.in
front of his place of business, is
raked up, and the same attention
should he paid to the back yards
Letjus impress the crowds of visitors with the cleanliness of the
Gateway City.   .
Landlord Thomas of the Cas*
cade, who visited the Burnt Basin
this week to set a gang at work on
one of his claims, says that every
man in. the Basin will be here on
the 24th This is true also of,
Gladstone arid .English '*'Point.
Secretary Wjllcox received letters
from Gree;nwriod. and Bossburg
this week re the celebration, and
there will pf.ohably be'delegations
from both points,, as well as. from
intermediate places. "The" Bossburg band may cinsist of fourteen
pieces, instead of twelve, as it has
been augmented to that number.
At any rate, there will be plenty
of music for the celebration.
When the U. S. troops occupied
the Coeur D'Alene mining camps,
a few days ago, anil, the dynamiting, murdering miners saw that
their day was ended, thev lost no
time in .making themselves scarce ;
that is, those who were not taken
UnawareB and - arrested. Tbe
refugees, many of them made for
the Canadian border, and during
the last week quite a number have
passed through Cascade, en route
to Greenwood and other -upper
Boundary camps. It is not surprising that these men should wish
to get out of the United Slates as
soon as they are able to make
tracks. . . ..
Last Sunday morning several
were' camped on the edjje of the
town. Going to a restaurant for
breakfast, one asked, " What city
is thjs ?" On being tohl.that it was
Cascade, the Gateway City of the
great Boundary country, he inquired : " On which side of the line
is it?" "Well." answered tbe
restaurant man, " it depnds; if
you.are on the other side, it is oil
this side, and,if you are on this
side, its on this side." " But it is
in British Columbia, is it net ?"
anxiously iiquired the man. On
being assured that he was in Hei
Majesty's territory the men were
greatly relieved, and shortly afterwards moved on, destined for the
upper Boundary and probably..for
the main line of the C P. R-, and;
so out of this sertion,
It is to be hoped that none of
these gentry will remain in this
region. Their methods of enforcing demands, as expressed in the
blowing up the Bunker Hill and
Sullivan mill, at Wardner, Ilaho,
and in the killing' of a couple of
men. are not in accord with the
sentiment on this side of the international line. If they had just
grievances they most certainly went
at it in the wrong way to get them
