CASCADE, B. C, MARCH 24, 1900.
No. 20.
J. K. Kelley's Claims on Sutherland
Creek Improving with Explorations.
The Dykehead only three Miles from Cascade Between the Railroad and Christina Lake.
J. K. Kelley has got a mine, not
only in his mind, hut as an actual
fact. He deserves to have a good
one, for through thick and thin he
has persisted in developing it. It
is right along side of of the C. P. R.
hetween it and Christina lake.
There is now but little douht, if any,
that Kelley's group of mines at the
point mentioned, will before many
months be the scene of mining
operations on a large scale.
Mr. Kelley writes Frank Hutchinson, who has several good claims
on Christina lake, among which is
the Elmore, that he has struck
shipping ore on the Dykehead
claim, where the principal work has
at present been done. There are 18
inches of chipping ore that goes upwards of $50 per ton gold and copper. Besides this payelreak there
is another 20 feet of a ledge that
runs $15. Work is now being
pressed upon the property to ascertain the extent ef the ledge.
News Comes that the Ledge has been Met
in the Avon
Information has been conveyed
to the Roi-sluiid Miner that the
ledge has been met in the Avon
tunnel. The tunnel on the Avon
has heen driven in for a distance
of 105 feet, and the ledge was encountered on Friday, and the work
of crosscuting it had just been
commenced when the messenger
who carried the news in left the
Tho Cascade has a shaft on it
which is now down 40 feet. There
is also a tunnel which has been
driven for 100 feet. A contract has
been let for an additional 100 feet
of tunnelling, which iB to be completed by June 1. The depth then
attained at the end of the working
will be between 150 and 200 feet.
The ore upon this property asnays
from $20 to $40, the width of the
lead being from three to four
School Inspector's Visit.
Mr. William Burns, B. A.,school
inspector for the districts of Yale
and Kootenay, spent Monday afternoon and Tuesday forenoon at the
school here. He came at an unfortunate lime, as only six pupils
were present, the rest being at
home more or less ill from the
effects of vaccination. If Mr.
Burns had come last week, be
would have had a better opportunity to form a correct estimate of
the work done in the school.
An   Interesting   Programme���Delicious   Refreshments���Amusing Oames.
The social held by the Mutual
Aid Society of Cascade on Thursday evening was a pronounced success in the matter of enjoyment,
although, in the matter of attend*
a nee, it was not equal to the socials
held of late by the society. As the
room was not so crowded as usual,
those present entered into Ihe different games and other amusements
with a great deal of spirit, and appeared to enjoy themselves thoroughly. Mr. John Simpson acted
as chairman during the evening.
The genial face of Mr. McCoy
was very much missed, and his
musical talent was also greatly
missed. Mr. Stocker, however, was
on hand as usual, and delighted
the audience with his singing,
especially with his song in the
Yankee dialect, which gave a great
deal of amusement to hiB hearers.
Miss Darrow's instrumental music
was highly appreeiated,as were also
the readings of Messrs. Kelman and
Simpson, and the recitation of Mr.
Ritchie. The singing and instrumental music of Mrs. M. J. Quinlivan, who a short time ago came
from Priceville, Ontario, ami took
up her abode in our midBt, were
greatly admired. This lady has a
sweet voice, and produces most
melodious strains from the violin. It is to he hoped that she
will favor the society on another
occasion with additional proofs of
her musical ability. After the
regular programme had been rendered, Mr. Reeves and others delighted the audience with songs and
instrumental music. Three charades were also acted, the words represented being "mushroom," "'Tebo"
and "sausage," the words used for
the syllables of the last word being
"sauce" and "age." Mr. Ritchie's
representation of the word "age"\vas
especially praiseworthy.
The refreshments, which were
abundant and of good quality,
were distributed under the superintendence of Mrs. Wolverton and
Miss Cameron. Al) took part in
this part of the programme with
evident relish.
After the distribution of the re
freshments, games of different kinds
were indulged in. The expression,
"Bologna Sausage," was also represented as a charade, Miss Cameron
and MessrB. Kelman, Ritchie and
Simpson taking part. The latter
word was represented by the words
"saw" and "sage," and the able
manner in which Miss Cameron
wielded ihe saw produced envy in
the breasts of the male sex present.
The amusements of this thoroughly
enjoyable evening came to an end
shortly before midnight.
Sam Sing and John Estocb Engage In a
flame of Cards and a Foot Race.
The war clouds floated close over
Cascade the first few days of this
Last Saturday was pay-day for
one or more of the gangs working
on the big flume. Indulgence in
"Ohbejoyful,"which usually follows
pay-day resulted in several scrapping bouts, which tended to relieve the monotony of unemployed
loungers, Only one of the affairs
however proved to be of sufficient
proportions to enlist the attention
of the authorities.
This was the difficulty hetween
Sam Sing and John Estocb, an
Austrian, and recent arrival. These
two gentlemen were playing cards
Tuesday afternoon. Sam's luck
was good and he was raking in the
Austrian's money which wrought
him up to the fighting pitch. Sam
seeing there was liable to be a lively time for him if he tarried at the
game, drew down his money and
started to leave, and the Austrian
followed, both on the dead run.
Sam ran to his washhouse, his
pursuer arriving there at about the
same time, hut the frightened
washerman succeeded in getting inside. The Austrian, not to be thus
easily foiled, took a club and began
smashing in the doors and windows.
At this stage of the game, Oflicer
Widdicombe appeared on the scene
aud put the odstrep<*ous John Es-
toch under arrest. From this on
the trouble for John assumed a
different phase. He was taken to
Her Majesty's lockup and held
there till 4.30 Wednesday afternoon,
when he was brought before Justice
Rochussen. On pleading guilty of
the charge laid against him, the
Justice sentenced the prisoner to
30 days at hard labor. Provincial
Officer D. J. Darraugh arrived on
Thursday's train and took the
prisoner away.
Stage Line Between Cascade and Bossbnrg again in Operation.
To Run Through in Pour 'Houra..Ck��e Railway Connections at Cascade and Bon-
burg will Be Made.
The Canadian Pacific has recently reduced its passenger rates in
Manitoba to three cents a mile.
Next week Messrs. Bell & Duncan
will start a stage line between Cascade and Bossburg. They formerly owned and operated a line between these points, but owing to
severe competition sold out last
year to G. W. Williams.
The roads are in fairly good condition now, the stock having had a
long rest is in fine shape, and it is
expected that the run between here
and Bossburg will be easily made
in four hours.
It is claimed by the promoters of
this line that it will he as heretofore the popular and least expensive route to all points in the
Boundary for travellers from the
south and east.
There is much travel between
rervation points, and as the time
for opening the north half approaches, that travel will increase
Tbe head quarters of the stage
line and its office at this end will
be at the Hotel Cascade. C. H.
Thomas,tbe enterprising proprietorr
will enlarge his stable room by the
addition of 30 or 40 feet to his barn
for the accommodation of the stage
A Rancher Named J. S. Sutherland and Two-
Hones Engulfed In Its Angry Waters.
Word came to town Wednesday
that a man named J. S. Sutherland,
while attempting to ford the Kettle
river with his two-horse team near
the Manly ranch, a week ago yesterday, was drowned, together with
the horses. At nny rate such it
the supposition at this writing, as
the wagon nnd dead horse were discovered Tuesday by it party floating logs down the stream, and Mr.
Sutherland had not been seen since
the previous Friday. At last accounts search was being made for
the unfortunate man's body. Sutherland was well known here, and
bought some of the live stock sold
here by Deputy Sheriff Cooper recently. At low water the Kettle
river is fordahle at the point where
the accident happend,hut the melting snow had swollen the river beyond the victim's calculations. He
is said to have relatives in Ontario.

Published on Saturdays at Cascade. B. C,
H. s. TrmNCR Editor.
When one ..tops to study himself,
his surroundings, iu tlie light of
experiences; when he compares the
retrospective with the prospective
results, the weaknesses of hit judgment and calculation are clearer to
his mental vision, than when hope,
the anchor of the soul, was chiefly
the basis of his action.
Hope, or wish, inspires thought
along pleasant lines and thought
begets action in conformity therewith, while that action may he entirely devoid of foundation other
than the desire which prompted it.
RecogVizing these conditions in
humanity generally, men of mental
force and physical energy push
themselves to the front and by artful manoeuvering secure a following that builds for them colossal
fortunes upon purely speculative
ideas. These methods are nowhere
more fully demonstrated than iu
auriferous mining districts.
A prospect of gold-bearing quartz
is discovered, assays are made of
the product which gives great
promise. Capital apparently unlimited is secured to develop the
prospect, and before any positive
results are reached or the actual
and lasting value of the mine has
heen demonstrated, its promotors
have reaped a rich harvest from
incidental speculations. Eager investors have been loaded with the
���company's paper, townsites have
been sold at enormous figures, a
few men made independently rich,
but when the deception can no
longer be hidden, then comes the
That there are rich gold bearing
veins in the Boundary country,
and that many of them are to-day
being developed, there cau be no
question. That these developments
will continue, no one will attempt
to deny. But all of the mines so
worked will not prove bonanzas.
Between the developing stages and
ultimate results many failures will
be experienced.
It is beginning to be apparent
that as regards the smelting feature
premature and illy considered steps
have been taken in  the Boundary.
The chancier of the ore has not
been sufficiently proven, and locations have not been chosen with
the best of care.
In a neighboring community today ominous mutterings are heard
relative to the expenditure of large
sums on an industry upon which
the future of the town largely depends. There is said to be trouble
in the directorate, the management
has been changed; the undertaking
has cost already vastly more than
estimates called for, and the creating of water powers where none exist is proving serious and extremely
expensive work. And when the
great work shall have been com
pleted, it is now claimed that the
created water power will he insufficient for the requirements, and the
invested capital will not be able to
receive the profit to which it is
justly entitled. Thus the speculator in human blindness, or more
properly, in his cupidity, striving
to reap where he has not sown, attempts to create.or in the language
of tlie day, to "boom," which attempt does and must result in a
collapse, bringing loss to the investor and distrust and ill repute lo
the community in which he operates.
Cascade has theonly water power
on Kettle river. It is now under development, and when completed,
will have a minimum of 10,000
horse power, fully developed.
Manufacturing or other industrial
establishments contemplating locating in the Boundary are invited
to investigate this claim.
Notwithstanding the general in*
activity among investors owing to
war conditions of a more or less
doubtful character for a time; regardless of labor disputes in some
sections of the province; despite
uncertainties and misgivings due
to the muddle scheming politicians
have made of governmental affairs;
ignoring the general alarm caused
by the "tempest in a teapot" in the
small-pox matter; paying no heed
to Bradstreet's blanket-libel publications, the mining industries in
the Boundary country are pursuing
the even tenor of their ways, if anything, with increased vigor and
success. New prospects, new leads,
new strikes, new machinery and
additional investments are reported
daily. The coining season will he
one of greater development and
successes than has been witnessed
in any former summer.
The residents of this part of
British Columbia have reason to be
thankful on account of the comparative mildness of the climate.
Here there is not a speck of snow
down in the valleys. The last of it
disappeared some time ago. The
snow on the mountains is also
rapidly disappearing. Fires are
scarcely needed in our dwelling
houses during the day time except
for cooking purposes. The birds
are singing sweetly and the wild
flowers are in bloom. In Eastern
Canada and the eastern part of
the United States it is different.
There the snow is two or three feet
deep on the level, and in drifts it is
sometimes ten or twelve feet deep.
Even in the streets of New York
the snow is eight inches deep.

A Huge Political Scandal.
A dispatch to the Nelson Tribune
says the political situation on the
Coast unmistakeably indicates that
both parties are drifting into party
lines. At a meeting of the executive
of the Liberal Association a resolution was carried unanimously
calling a provincial convention of
Liberals in this city on Thursday
April 5th. A great sensation was
caused here by the World publishing correspondence between Premier.
Martin and the officials of the
lands and works department relating to letters patent granted on
November 18th last, issued by the
Semlin government, granting the
New Vancouver Coal Company the
coal areas under the Nanaimo harbor, suit for the ownership of which
was still pending between the
Dunsmuirs and the coal company.
Attorney-general Henderson issued
orders that the publication of the
document )>e withheld from the
Gazette, so as to keep the matter
quiet. It is generally regarded as
the liugest political scandal ever
perpetrated in this province.
Should Not Be an Issue of Rival Cities.
The issue on the coast is not one
of politics or policies; it is one of
towns. It is Vancouver against
Victoria. The lower^ Fraser valley
supports Vancouver and the Island
constituents support Victoria. The
interior, and more especially Bast
and West Kootenay and Southern
Yale, is the only section of the province in no way interested in this
fight between rival towns. The
eight members that will be elected
to the next legislature from the
Kootenays and Yale should be men
able and willing to lead and not
follow. They should compel the
factionists on the coast to follow,
and for a while be hewers of wood
and carriers of water for the people
who are making British Columbia
one of the most prosperous provinces in the Dominion.���Nelson
Tribune. __^_
The wages of section men working on tbe Columbia & Western, it
is stated, have been out down to
$1.50 a day. With board at $5.25
per week, the "Jerries" will not get
rich, but it may enable the C. P. R.
to pull through.
C.  H.  Thomas and  Samuel  Handy   the
Sam Handy and C. H. Thomas
have formed a partnership for the
purpose of conducting a draying
and livery business. They have
purchased the city water hauling
business from Mr. Roderick McRae
and hereafter will attend to supplying onr citizens with water until
the city is provided with a regular
system of waterworks.
There are said to be upwards of
10 cases of smallpox in Republic.
The Rossland Miner makes the
statement editorially that the C. P.
R. has purchased the Grand Forks
Daily Gazette.
The Ferry county (Wash.) Republican convention will meet at
Republic to-day. It will be composed of 40 delegates.
Mr. Stanley Mayall left on
last Saturday evening's train for
Victoria, where he intended to remain for a week or ten days.
During the past two weeks of
beautiful spring weather, many of
our citizens have improved tbe opportunity to visit the big dam of
the Cascade Water and Light Co.,
which affords a grand   waterfall
Our citizen are proud of the new
railway station house at this point.
It has been dressed in a neat shade
of light drab paint. The carpenters are putting the finishing
touches to the interior. Altogether-
it is an ornament to the town.
Tbe present spirit of the Britisb
press compared with its tone while
the Boers were winning victories,,
reminds one of tbe story of the
little boy who had to go through a
piece of woods alone to reach hie
home. He prayed the Lord to-
protect bim from all barm by wild
beasts, but when he emerged
into the clearing he thanked the
Lord and told Him he had no
iuther need of His services. When
the Boers were gaining victories the
British press was alarmed lestsome
other country interfere on behalf of
their enemy in the field. Now,
however, all other nations are
warned tbat if they interfere they
will get their mugs slapped. She's
got through the woods.
The people of Republic and Keller are sure tbe Great Northern R.
R. Co. will give them a railroad
during the coming summer.
