The Waukegan & Washington
Mining nnd Smelting company is
carrying on extensive development
work on mining properties on Sulphide mountain on the Washington side about six miles southeast
from Cascade, in the northern portion of Pierre Lake district.
The president of the company,
Mr. C. A. Raught, and one of the
directors, Mr. Arthur E. Stripe,
were in town yesterday and a Record reporter was accorded an interview.
From these gentlemen the following information relative to the affairs of their company was obtained : Tho company owns five
claims in the locality designated
above���by names, Easter Sunday,
New Year, Island Queen, Bobtail
and Last Chance.
The Easter Sunday, the only one
of these claim* which has been exploited to any extent is proving to
be a marvelously rich and valuable
mineral property, and already takes
rank in the mining world as one of
the coming greatest gold producers.
Consideranle exploitation work
has been accomplished already on
this claim, and twelve men are at
present steadily employed. The
claim, which is' now proven a great
mine, wus located some two years
ago, but definite and persistent efforts to develop it have been put
forth only during theyear last past,
which have consisted mainly as
follows: Shaft No. 1 has been
driven down 75 feet, all the
way on the vein. At this level a
58-foot drift was run in an easterly
direction in ore the entire distance,
and no wall was discovered. The
next step taken was tp go 176 feet
east on surface and sink a drillhole 225 feet. Forty feet below the
surface the drill ran into the ore
body, it being of the same character as that found in the shaft and
drift.
Two hundred and fifty feet north
of shaft No. 1, shaft No. 2 was sent
down 65 feet. In this shaft at a
depth of 28 feet very rich ore running high in telurium was encountered.
The average assay of ordinary
samples from all parts of the ledge,
in all values, gold predominating,
runs up to the gratifying figure of
$300. It is known, however, that
some choice specimens from the
Easter Sunday have assayed at
the rate of about $8,000 per ton.
The prospecting plant consists of
only two steam pumps, engine,
boiler and diamond drill, but now
that the extent and value of the
ore deposit has proven sufficient to
warrant it a more adequate plant
will be installed. The object of the
visit here of Messrs. Raught and
Stripe was partly to learn the inten
tion of the Cascade Water Power
company relative to furnishing electrical power to mining enterprises.
Thecompany will provide a commodious smelter and steam plant tn
operate it, provided they do not get
power otherwise. Before settling
on smelter plans, the officers desired
to know whether a smelter was to be
erected in Cascade in the near future, possibly making it feasible to
ship their ores here instead of supplying their own smelter works.
The Waukegan & Washington
Mining and Smelting company is a
stock concern, but the stock is not
on the general market, it being
held almost entirely by the friends
nnd relatives of the owners' and
managers. The company is officered as follows: C. A. Raught, president; Alfred E. Stripe, vice-president; R. H. Stripe, secretary and
treasurer; Jas. Moffet, manager.
The directors are: C. A. Raught,
Alfred E. Stripe, Jas. Moffet, Arthur E. Stripe and Isai Petre, all except Moffet, of Waukegan, Illinois,
where the main or home office is
located, and where tbe secretary-
treasurer resides.
Included in the works at the
mine are no less than 17 buildings,
erected for the use of the operatives
and officers of the company. Mr.
Stripe said that this camp is by far
the richest in every sense, of any in
in the north half of the reservation.
MICHAEL SCHAICH SELLS
THE MOUNTAIN VIEW CLAIM.
Bonded to V. Monnfer...Utaied Two  Miles
from Cascade on the American Side.
One of the richest nearby mineral discoveries of recent date is
the claim known as the Mountain
View, This claim is situated about
two miles from Cascade, on the
American side of the Boundary
line. It was originally located the
3rd of last August, and was bonded
to Mr. V. Monnier the 8th of, last
month. The development work
which has been vigorously prosecuted the past morfth has revealed
indications that point strongly to a
very rich deposit of a large body of
copper ore. The work was done
mainly on the surface whereby two
ledges have been exposed which
run parallel for a distance of from
300 to 500 feet, showing copper ore
through their whole width, which is
from 7 to 22 feet. About 75 tons
of ore accumulated by the stripping
process are now stored on the
ground. Samples sent to the Trail
and Granby smelters gave an average return of $15 per ton.
The owners are now considering
the feasibility of erecting a gravity
aerial tramway to carry the mineral
from the claim to the foot of the
mountain, to which point a spur
from the C. P. R. could easily be
constructed, The several mining
experts who have inspected the
Mountain View claim pronounce
it one of the most promising properties in the district.
His Entire Interest In  Contact Group  la
Burnt Bull.
A deal was closed Monday by
which Henry T. Jackson and
Marshall Jackson bought outright
all of Mike Schaich's interests in
the Contact group of claims in
Burnt Basin, which consists of the
Contact, Glengary, Mountain View
and Mountain View Fraction, covering in all about 180 acres, lying
to the north of and adjoining the
valuable Mother Lode property.
The Jacksotis are now the owners
of two-thirds of the Contact, the
other third being owned by another
Rosslander. This property is
looked upon as being one of the
most promising in that section.
Considerable work has been done
on it during the summer. A tunnel was driven 105 feet which cut
through 75 feet of low grade quartz.
Besides that a body of high grade
ore from 10 to 12 feet wide bursts
right through to the surface, and
which can be traced nearly the entire length of the Contact claim.
It is very likely in so vast a body
of quartz that more than one shoot
of high grade ore will be encountered in lower levels that does not
show on the surface. The property
is within 1,200 or 1,500 feet of the
Columbia & Western railway.
A New Similkameen Man.
Mr. Frank Bailey, a pioneer
prospector, and thoroughly acquainted with the Similkameen
country, has issued a splendid new
map of that section. Accompanying
the map is a complete prospectus
and travelers' guide. Just the
thing for all parties looking to that
part of the province for a place of
future residence or business. The
prospectus is on sale at this office,
at $2 per copy. Strangers and all
others going into that rich section
cannot afford to be without this
helpful guide.
BRIEF LOCAL MENTION.
James Matheson, a C. P. R
brakeman, fell under the wheels of
a freight car, at Farron, just this
side of Bulldog tunnel, last week
Tuesday, which resulted in the
crushing of his left leg horribly.
After the accident the sufferer was
taken to Grand Forks nnd placed
in the Miss Rhodes hospital. Up
on examination Drs. Northrop and
Westwood amputated the injured
limb above the knee. Matheson is
a native of Lethbridge, N. W. T.,
and only 22 years of age.
Onlya few days more for bargains in clothing at Mahaffy's.
R. G.- Ritchie made a business
trip to Nelson this week.
S. W. Bear has built a front
porch to his hotel building on
Second ave.
Mrs. C. Kinney, of Greenwood,
is a guest of Mr. and Mrs. Stocker,
at Lnurel Ridge.
Mrs. Wm. Anderson entertained
a few of her lady friends at afternoon tea Wednesday.
Mr. William Dinsmore, the harness and shoemaker of Grand
Forks has returned from Vancouver
with a complete outfit for his new
harness shop. He was accompanied by his wife.
Mr. W. S. Torney, general merchant at Eholt, was a visitor in
Cascade this week. Mr. Torney
says there is promise of a future for
hiB town. He says business is improving. Being a railroad junction, and a partial terminal, a
roundhouse and other facilities
have to be provided, and quite a
number of extra employes maintained, which gives the town quite
a business air.
The miners have won their demands for an increase in wages in
the anthracite coal mines of Pennsylvania. THE CASCADE RECORD

ing to the relief of prospectors, lib
erally discussed, We believe they
are in the right direction, and if
embodied in law anil action taken
thereunder, incalculable good would

Albert I. Drake has launched a
Democratic daily newspaper in the
town of Republic, Wash., the seat
of government for Ferry county.
In size it is a 4-column folio, and
its enterprising editor announces
that the News haB come to abide
permanently. Here's our gt
Albert, while hoping your little
daily may flourish and grow rapidly in dimension nnd influence.
With two furnaces the Grand
Forks smelter will produce nearly
three carloads of matte per week.
A local refinery, which is contemplated, would, it will be seen by
this, work a great saving to the
Miner-graves syndicate. Beside the
refinery charges, the freight bill for
running twelve or thirteen cars per
month ncross the continent, is not
to be lost sight of, when the saving
of the latter expense entirely, and a
large portion of the former, is a
possibility. '
The Nelson Miner is informed
that the Labor candidate is a son
of the late Michael Harrison Foley.
The older race of Eastern Canadian politicians will remember him
ns a brilliant and elequent Irish-
Catholic member of the Parliament
of old Canada, and as a member of
the Brown-Dorion and -Sanfielil-
Mncdonald governments in pre-
Ccmfederation days. The Miner
ennnot vouch for the alleged relationship, but if Mr. Chris. Foley is
his son he come? from very good
stock.
Affairs in China look gloomy.
The powers, jealous of each other
as a lot of small-bore politicians,
are in a muddled and confused
state, while the different waring
elements iu the flowery kingdom of
savages are carrying things with a
high hand, ami n general conflict
between the reformers and anti-reformers is apparently about to he
begun. It now appears that it will
be necessary for the powers to reduce the whole country to subjection, and either partition it among
themselves, or set up an entirely
new government. The latter course
involves an undertaking of im-
menne proportions, the end whereof
no human mind is capable even
to prophesy.
It would not surprise unprejudiced and disinterested spectators
if it should be announced on November 7th that William Jennings
Bryan had been elected to succeed
Mark Hanna's present Punch-and-
Judy occupant of the executive
chair. An associated press correspondent writing from Indiana, one
of the pivotal states, asserts that
if it should rain on election day
McKinley would be defeated, as it
would give many who do not approve of his administration an excuse to stay at home, rather than
vote against their convictions under
partisan stress. The same writer
says that in Indiana Mr. Bryan's
strength is in the cities, and Mr.
McKinley's in the country districts,
and if there should be one hundred
sick hogs in the state on election
day, the misfortune would keep a
sufficient number of republican
farmers from the polls to defeat the
latter. It's a queer combination of
circumstances when the choice of
a chief executive for a nation so
ii.fluted with self-admiration as the
United States hinges on the health
of hogs. The Indiana hog has
great responsibility on its shoulders,
and should be above turning down
a man like McKinley.
The mining interests tributary
to Cascade are constantly improving and becoming more and more
valuable day by day. The ore in
the Messenger, on Baker creek, is
proving immense, both in value
and extent.
Statement ol the Canadian Pacific  Railway
on Halt a Year's Business.
The following statement of the
revenue account of the company for
the half year ended June 30 last,
which was promised because of the
change in the company's fiscal year,
is transmitted for the information
of the shareholders.

To this is added an interest account
of $1,011,358.67, making a total of
$6,289,305.50.
Deduct fixed charges, six months
$3,434,244.67-$2,855,060.83; deduct six months' interest on preference stock, $599,086.67���$2,255,-

declared a half-yearly dividend of
2^ per cent, $1,625000, leaving a
balance of $630,974.16.
Reservation Railway Schemes.
Evidently the C. P. R. is in dead
earnest in its intention of cutting
the Grand Forks railway promoters
out of their line to Republic and
means to get a road in there first
or break something.
The first of the week its prelimi-
dary location survey was made in
24 hours so the filings could be
made at the same time as its local
competitors and now the big Canadian railway company has begun
the work of running its permanent
survey.
Word wii8i��rought from Republic on Thursday to the effect that a
party of engineers had left there to
make the permanent survey of the
McCuaig Rebublic-Grand Forks
railway and enquiry by telegraph
disclosed the fact that this report
was true. The engineers, James N.
Ralston and E. H. Warner, with a
survey party, started out Thursday
morning and are working north as
fast as they can. The line being
located is that which will be followed by the railway when it is built,
and from the haste with which the
work is being pushed through the
intention is very evident to build
through at once.
Nothing has been given out for
publication by the local promoters
for some days but that is by no
mean^ an indication that they are
sitting idle. Their work has now
gone as far as it can go until some
move is made to commence actual
building operations. Just when
any further move will be made by
them is not certain but they will
undoubtedly have something to
give out before long.
A story was on the street here
last evening to the effect that the
Great Northern had quietly sent
agents to Washington, 1). C, and
arranged to have its franchise over
the reservation extended for another 60 days. If this report should
prove true it would seen that both
the competitors from this side of
the line were cut out for the time
heing as the Jim Hill charter gives
him the right to traverse any part
of the reserve desired, and his asking for an extension of 60 days
only would indicate that he intends getting something done before
that time. Up to the time of going
to presB, however, nothing more
definite than rumor is known regarding this.���Grand Forks Gazette.

% A WOMAN'S LUCK
I    IN LITTLE HEAVEN ��
"It is not often thut you see a
respectable married woman playing roulette in this country," euid
11 man who was a prospector for
gold years ago, as he chatted with
a party of friends the other night,
"hut I was a witness once of such
an ocnurance. The woman was
gambling because she needed the
money, and it made every looker-
on happy to see her stick Ihe hank
for more than it bad won during
tbe month. Hiram Dickson, nn old
miner who afterward made a fortune in the gold regions of the fur
West, was tbe husband of tbe
woman gambler, and it was because of the luird  luck which bud
an' break me I won't care extra
much fer, by gosh, I like your nerve
an' yer pluck,'
Mrs. Dickson took a small bag of
gold from her pocket, and counted
it. She put half of it back. Then
she walked around the hall aud
watched the tables. Tbe woman
gazed long at the rouleite. After a
time she walked up, edged her way
in with the others, nnd bought a
stack of chips. She gave a quarter
of all she had for the stack. She
bud remembered tbat it was her I
birthday, and she wus twenty-seven
years of age that day. Fourteen
years before she had met and married Dickson. She did not know
anything about the game, but the
gamblers said it took a new hand
at the business to win, bo she put a
chip on the 27, the number of her
year*. When the little ball rolled,
it stopped at 14.   Then she played
night alone to make a stake to carry them on lo the gold fields. Dickson did not know of the gambling
until bis wife got buck with the
money, and he was so overjoyed
that he could not scold her for mixing with such a crowd.
"One night���I remember it well.
tbe snow was falling and the weather was fierce. A large crowd of
rough miners were gathered at
Blodgett's. All the games were running. At each of these the luck
w;u going with the house, as usual,
and the bankers were raking in the
coin. Jim was standing by a poker-table when a man rushed up
and said there was a woman at
the door. Now the female population at the Little Heaven was small,
and women who went there were
following their husbands in search
of gold. When Jim heard that a
woman was standing at bis door,
he hurried to see the reason of tbe
visit. A small woman, dressed in
black, and wrapped in a heavy
shawl, met him.
" 'Mr. Blodgelt,' she said, 'I
have heard much of you, nnd I
want to know if I can come in and
try my luck. My husband is up at
the camp, and I've got to play tonight.' Blodgett did not know
what to say. He had never had a
woman player in the house, but
this little woman was so frail and
weak that he had to invite her in.
The rough gamblers eyed her, but
there was something about her appearance which excited their pity.
While seated by the fire the woman
said that she was Mrs. Dickson,
and that she and her husband were
prospecting. 'We have had hard
luck,'she said, 'and my husband
is loo. ill to travel. We have not
found anything, and something
has to be done. I dreamed last
night of this place. X had heard of
it before, and all day I have been
thinking of it. I just want to try
my luck. I haven't much to lose,
and if I drop it I will go back satisfied.'
���' 'Wai, the little 'oman '11 have
to play, that's all,' eaid a big man
who had lost fortunes and won
them in his day; 'and, lady, if you
lose what you have we'll make it
up and let you go back to your
oamp.'
A smile crept over the woman's
face, and her eyes sparkled. She
had removed the heavy shawl, and
the bright color had returned to
her face. She was a pretty woman,
but she had suffered from the days
and months spent in hunting gold,
and she sighed as she talked of her
home in the East.
"'Lady,'said Blodgett,'you kin
play when you like, and if you win
come to him that bis wife went one114, and it jumped back to 27. After this she decided to play only
Ihe two numbers, and in ten minutes she had only five quarter chips
left. Twenty-seven hnd not rolled
for several turns, and she slipped
the five chipB on that number.
"Twenty-seven pays," cried the
bunker, and he counted off the
chips for Mrs. Dickson. After that
she played wildly, ''and had a
streak of luck that was marvelous.
Blodgett bad always had a sign
about his place saying that the sky
was the limit, and the woman
gambler saw it. She would toss out I
a stack of chips, without counting
them, for tbe 14 or 27 spot, and
time after time she won. The men
were pushing and stretching their
necks for a view of the table, and
the cold perspiration was running
down the woman's neck. Blodgott
got interested. He told the banker
to step aside, and he handled the
game. The streak of luck continued. Every turn of the wheel she
bad ten chips on 14 or 27, and
while she lost time after time, she
came out far ahead in the end. At
one stage she had been losing heavily. Twenty-seven refused to show,
but she played it nervously, and
said to herself that it would win in
a minute. She kept losing, and her
stake dwindled. While the wheel
was turning she had been counting her chips off in stacks. Four
stacks represented $100, nnd she
seemed anxious to play it in a
bunch. The woman put $10 on the
27, and lost. Then she shoved the
$100 stack on the 27, and the
wheel clicked off. The ball spun
for a time, and then rattled. It fell
on the 27 ! The woman's eyes staggered when Blodgett counted off
the equivalent of $3,500 in checks,
before he had time to take his
breath, Mxs. Dickson had shoved
another $100 stack on the 27, and
it came a winner again.
"Blodgett by this time was sick
and be had wished a thousand
times in the minute that his sky
limit was not the rule. Once he
wanted to demur, but tbe crowd,
which stood hy the woman, raised
objection, and Blodgett had to
stand and shake while his money
was going rapidly to the player.
Mrs. Dickson continued to play the
two numbers. She had won more
than she ever dreamed of seeing,
and luck stuck so her like a
brother.
. "At last she had about decided
to quit while she was ahead, and
her good friend by her side said
that it was best. But she wanted
to make one star winning first, so
she counted off $500 and placed it nn
27. Blodgett gave the wheel a
vicious roll.
" 'Ten  to one  the  shot pays,',,
shouted the big fellow standing by
Mrs. Dickson, but nobody took it
up.
"They seemed to feel that number would come, and when the ball
stopped, there it was on the
TWENTY-SEVEN ! It almost
knocked lib dgett out. He had to
got) his snfr, and count out an
even $17,500 for the roll.
"Mrs. Dickson cashed in after
this. She bad $41,500 from the
night's play, but she felt weak
when the man banded her the
money in a stout bag. She was
alone, and she feared some of the
toughs ni.gill kill her.
"'I'll accompany you to your
husband,' said tbe big fellow; 'and
you need not fear 1> sing it, for
while these excited men here are
rough mining gamblers, they would
not take a dollar of your money.
We like you, don't we, boy.i?' and
with that the house sent up a roaring cheer for the little woman."
Howard, the man who attempted
to shoot to death one Muller, not
long since, in the Bodego saloon at
Nelson, and pleaded guilty to the
charge last Tuesday, was sentenced to be restrained of his liberty
for five years, and abide at New
Westminster, during tbe period of
his penal servitude. ���

 4 THE   CASCADE   RECORD
Ootobor 50,19'JO
NOTE AND COMMENT.
Mr. Johnson Hughs, formerly of
Cascade, is now permanently employed at the Grand Forks smelter.
Mr. W. C. Simmons left Cascade
Tuesday for Bracebridge, Ont.,
where he is called by the Berious
illness of his aged mother, whose
physicians deolare her recovery impossible.
The day the reservation was
thrown open across the lint, Wm.
F. Button and A. M. Button and a
Mr. Williams located a homestead
claim of 100 ncres each at the
junction of Deep creek with the
Kettle river, near the Bowen place.
The returning officer being an
autocrat in his electoral district,
he appears to have the power to fix
the day for holding an election in
his political kingdom. Hence, the
returning officer for Yale-Kootenay-
Cariboo district haB, it is asserted,
named November 21 as the polling
day therein, This is deemed necessary on account of the immense
territory embraced in the riding,
and is apparently imperative in
order to give sufficient time for the
delivery of the voting paraphernalia.
While we in this section are in
the habit of stating the value of
ores, according to the amount of
gold, silver, copper and sometimes
lead, contained therein; it should
be borne in mind that the further
composition of the rock may mod
ify the actual amount paid by the
smelter. Iron and lime are essential in smelting, and the ore buyer
keeps his eye on them. Such being
the case it would be well for prospectors and those interested in
properties to have their samples
assayed not only for the precious
metals, hut occasionally for their
other contents.
The Liberal and Conservative
papers take the ground that the labor element has no right for representation in the law-making bodies
of the country except such as the
politicians see fit lo give them, and
are charging the labor organizations
with having committed a political
crime in nominating Chris. Foley
for the Dominion parliament. As
this is supposed to be a free country
we cannot see why labor should not
take independent action as well as
the capitalists, who seek a nomi
nee who will look out for his interests first. The Mine Owners Asso'
ciation is a political affair and goes
into politics for the purpose of securing laws for the especial benefit
of its members, and why shouldn't
the labor associations be at liberty
to do likewise?

Mice as Food in China.
The first thing which strikes the
traveler in China upon his enter-
ance into any of the many cities of
the Celestial empire is the strings
of dried mice which hang from the
roofs of the houses suspended by
their tails, just as sausages are
hung in front of a butcher shop in
France.
The Chinese hunt these mice
with a long, sharp, pointed knife
which they plunge into the animals
throat. Then the mice are suspended by the tails until the blood
has dripped out, when they are
skinned, drawn and smoked.
Another favorite dish  with the
Chinese is dogs' feet.   The feet of
i IS
black dogs are considered more of a jf:
delicacy than those of any other
color, and white dogs are rejected
as being tasteless. Dogs' fat prepared in a special manner, is looked upon as a repast fit for a king
