THE CASCADE RECORD
Published in the Interests of the Boundary Mining District
Vol. I.
CASCADE, B. C, MARCH 4, 1899.
No. 17.
INQUEST ON CASSATO.
Jury Gave a Verdict on the Murdered
Italian.
The post mortem examination
011 the remains of Donato Cassato,
the Italian laborer who was brutally murdered some weeks ago on
the Brooklyn wagon road near
Christina Lake, was held Saturday
by Dr. G. M. Foster of this city.
The examination revealed the fact
that the victim had received no
less than 12 different wounds before he fell and was left to freeze
and die. Nearly all the wounds
were in different parts of the head.
The coroner's jury met on Monday, pursuant to adjournment, and
heard the report of Dr. Foster on
the post mortem. James Henry
Neil, of Greenwood, who firnt saw
the body of Cassato last Wednesday week, .while on his way to
Brooklyn, also told what he knew
of the affair. The jury deliberated
only about 10 minutes and gave
the verdict expected, that Cassato
came to his death at the hands of
some person or persons  unknown.
Last Tuesday's Nelson Miner
quotes the Record's story of the inquest in full, and states that Constable Forrester, of Brooklyn, had
been ordered to assist on the case.
Up to last night, however, Constable Darraugh had heard nothing of or from Mr. Forrester.
In the Mining Field
Cameron Was Discharged
The case agaist Howard Cameron
of the B. C. Tobacco Co., which recently did business in this city and
left a number of unpaid bills, when
the members of the firm departed,
came up on Monday, and was continued till Thursday. On the latter
date Mr. Cameron was represented
by H. S. Cayley, of Grand Forks,
and the accused was discharged by
Justices Rochussen and Rose. It
was held that he had personally
had nothing to do with attempting
to get goods by misrepresentation.
The case made out by W. A.
Milne on Thursday, on a similar
charge, was also dismissed. Mr.
Cameron's father is expected to
arrive from Edmonton  tomorrow.
Accident at the Dam
Wednesday afternoon an accident occurred at the site of the
operations on the new dam, by
which Victor Guinet had his left
leg broken and the bone badly
shattered between the knee and
ankle. He had given the signal
for hoisting a heavy timber to place
hy horse power, and warned others
to look out. But the immense timber suddenly and unexpectedly
veered and in a twinkling caught
his leg against the rock, crushing
it badly.
Guinet was taken to the company's hospital here, and given
every available attention. It is
thought that the member can be
saved, the shattered bone having
already been set.
The Columbia stage line has increased the fare from Bossburg to
Columbia from $4.50 to $5.00. To
Cascade the old rate of $3.50 still
As a theatre of great mining activity the Burnt Basin district,
which is tributary to Cascade,
promises to be in the fore front this
spring and summer. The numerous remarkable discoveries of free
gold there last year has attracted
widespread attention in mining
circles, and as a result numerous
deals are already reported as made
or pending.
A couple of weeks ago the Mother
Lode group, owned by Mike Shick
and others was sold to a strong
company, and work is to be started
on the property within a month.
It is now reported that the Solid
Gold group, the Tammany group
and the Ennismore will be actively
developed this sen son. A number
of other negotiations are being
made, and it is safe to say that by
the time the snow is gone a number of the best properties in that
rich region will be working.
Not only will this be the rule in
the Burnt Basin proper, but McRae creek, Baker creek and Shamrock mountain properties, from the
present indications, are sure to be
opened up this season, and as far
as possible their richness shown to
the mining world. As a matter of
fact, the country east of Christina
lake is one of untold mineral possibilities.
SOLID GOLD.
This group* owned by Richard
Cooper, of Rossland, it is said, has
been bonded to a strong syndicate
at a price exceeding $40000, work
to be commenced at an early date.
There are five claims in the group
and free gold can be found on each
one of them. One lead is six feet
wide.
ENNISMORE.
T. H. Rae, who was in town this
week, says that Torn Keller has
sold the property to the Avon
Mining and Milling Co., and that
$3000 worth of stock has been disposed of in Rossland. G. T. Curtis
and J. P. Robertson, of Cascade,
own a quarter interest in this property, and assert that they know
nothing whatever of the sale. It
appears, however, that the property
will he worked.
TAMMANY GROUP.
These claims are owned by Reed,
McPherson Rae, and others, and
the appearance of the property
amazes those who examine it. Free
gold is readily seen sticking out
and $5,000 assays have been made.
A deal i�� now pending with a
Toronto firm, which seems likely
to go through. If so, it will be
completed by March 21st, and
shortly thereafter this remarkable
property, with its 12-foot lead, will
be worked. '���'..,
MYSTERY.
The work of cross-cutting is now
going on with this group hy Chas.
Willarson and Pete Johnson, the
owners. They were in Cascade
this.week, and report only half the
usual amount of snow  generally
prevalent at this season, indicating
an early spring. They .will continue work on the Mystery.
JOHN BULL.
Development on this group, near
Gladstone, has been steadily progressing, and the latest reports are
that the ore is improving with development. A strong syndicate is
carrying on operations under a
working bond at a good figure. It
is the intention to crown grant the
property at an early date.
ELMORE.
This group, on Shamrock nioun-
tuin, will undoubtedly be worked
at an early date. Frank Hutchinson, one of the owners, came in
from Rossini.d yesterday, and
stated that about April 1st active
work will be commenced on the
property. Thin is the leading
property on old Shamrcck, and
great things are expected of it. The
lead is phenomenal, assays most
satisfactory, and the ore almost an
exact duplicate of the Rossland
ores.
CHAMBERLAIN.
This property is located on McRae creek, about three miles from
the lake. Frank Hutchinson, the
owner, started for the claim today
and will at once sink a shaft.
Assays of $14 in gold have been
obtained.
Work on the Great Western
group, across Kettle river from
Cascade, is being prosecuted with
vigor by Kenneth P. Matheson.
D, C. Beach, who is interested in
the Victoria group, near McRae
landing, expects to have capital interested and work begun on the
properties in the course of another
month.
VanCleve and Bowman have
completed their assessment work
on the Mohawk, a claim which lies
on the Cascade townsite, adjoining
the International boundary line.
The showing on this property is
considered good, the vein being a
strong one and yielding 4 per cent,
in copper near the surface.
Boundary Mines
A 5-ton smelter test of Winnipeg
ore gave returns of $71 per ton.
The Cariboo in Camp McKinney,
has paid over$200,000 in dividends.
W, S. Keith has obtained an
option on the Mountain View claim
adjoining the Crescent in Skylark
camp.
The Mother Lode company have
obtained possession of the Sunrise
and Sunflower claims near the
Mother Lode.
The new plant for the B. C. mine,
recently sold by R. G. E. Leckie,
will be installed as soon as it can
he brought in on the new railway
line.
The Yankee Girl, Yankee Boy
and Bell claims, on Hardy mountain were sold last week to Henry
White, superintendent of the City
of Paris mine.   The purchase price
is not given out, but $5,000 was
paid down, balance in three months.
Otto Dillier has given a bond on
the Johannesburgin Skylark camp.
Johannesburg joins Lead King, the
third location ever made on Boundary creek.
Nearly 650 feet of work have
been done on the Golden Crown iu
Wellington camp. Machinery is
installed and a large amount of
good copper ore is on the dump.
The Annie L. (Little Cariboo
M. & M. Co.,) in Camp McKinney,
is down 50 feet in ore, the water is
getting somewhat troublesome and
a hoist and pump will soon be in
order on this claim.
The Headlight, on the West Fork
of Kettle River owned by S. Ben-
erman, of Midway, has been sold
to E. A. Bielenberg, of Greenwood.
The price was $2,000, Mid the claim
is said to be a good one, carrying
gold, silver and copper values.
An option was given on the
Queen of Sheba in Dead wood camp,
to E. C. Finch of Spokane and
Rossland by L. A. Smith and
George Andrews and $200 cash
was put up on the option. It lies
300 feet from the Mother Lode and
promises well.
TheO'Shea in Camp McKinney
has been stocked in Spokane, and
the Kamloops in the same camp
will shortly pass into the hands of
Toronto capitalists at a large figure.
It adjoins the Minnehaha, tbe
Sailor and the Cariboo, and is
owned by M. J. Moran.
The Waterloo mine in Camp
McKinney is showing up in fine
shape. The shaft started in October is down 83 feet, all in ore. A
hoisting plant is now on its way to'
the property, which is owned by a
Spokane corporation. The several
strikes of late have appreciated the
stock.
E. C. Finch, of Rossland, has
just bonded from John Douglas of
Camp McKinney for $30,000, the
Mabel and Oro claims in Central
camp, also the Cornucopia which
adjoins the above properties, from
the same gentlemen for $10,000.
The deal was negotiated by E. A.
Bielenberg, who recently sold the
Buckhorn and Tintic. The claims
are crown granted and run high iH
copper.
The final payment on the Fon-
tenoy in Camp McKinney, was
made in Greenwood this week. The
Fontenoy Gold Mining & Milling
Co. starts with a capital of $1,000,-
000, and is backed by the Duns-
muirs, James Dunsmuir having
secured a controlling interest. Associated with him are Hon. C. E.
Pooley and B. J. Perry, Phil. J.
Hickey, J. F. Reddy, J. D. Farrell
and C. P. Chamberlain. A plant
has been ordered and development
of the property will be pushed with
vigor.

What is Being Done on the Line of
Construction.
SUPT. J. W. STEWART BUCK AGAIN.
Engineers now in the Field Running Lines
Between Midway and Penticton.
The work is all let out and well
under way between Greenwood and
Midway.
Jack Stewart returned Wednesday from a trip of inspection as far
as Greenwood.
The paymaster has been bring-
smiles to the faces of a large number this last week.
The bridge over Sutherland
creek is to be about 250 feet long
and some 60 or 70 feet high.
There is considerable work to be
done yet iu sight of Cascade, as
evidenced by the many shots heard
daily.
Not as much trouble as usual is
anticipated from spring slides, on
account of the large amount of
rock work done.
Engineers are now in the field
running lines for the part of the
road that will probably be built
this year hetween Midway and Penticton.
Olaf. Olson now has about 40
tven at work on his tunnel contract, east of Gladstone. There is
only about 40 feet to complete on
this tunnel.
Engineer John F. Stevens is
credited by the Spokane papers
with Beeking a new route for a railway into Republic. Jim Hill is
said to be behind the project.
The contractors still have a force
of men on the sand banks between
Gladstone and McRae Landing,
and also on the bridge foundations
at the crossing of Sutherland creek.
Porter Bros, will, in a short time,
be working double shifts on the
bridges that delay the tracklaying
gang. The bridge over Kettle
river at Cascade will not cause any
delay.
The high bridge over Moberly
creek, at Shield's Landing, has
been completed, and the tracklayers have now reached the work
of Foss & McDonell, a couple of
miles above.
The work on Fobs & McDonell's
tunnel, above Niagara, is moving
along at a lively rate for hand
drilling. The bore is now in some
400 feet out of the 700- to be driven.
Jim McDonell1 is now back east on
a little vacation.
The contractors have plenty of
steel on hand for present needs in
tracklaying, enough to lay rails as
far as Grand Forks. If need be
later, the laying of the iron can be,
done at 'the rate of at least two
miles daily,- working one shift.
It is expected, when the spring
break-up comes, that nearly as
many men will be required on the
line as in November and December. It took 4,500 bank checks for
the December pay roll, and somewhat less for January. February
required about 3000.
Pat Welch's work near Niagara
will probably last till the middle of
May.
Between the McRae creek summit and Cascade there are altogether same 15 bridges.
According to the best calculations the rails should be laid into
Cascade sometime in June.
Superintendent Stewart reports
the work along the entire line in
most satisfactory condition.
J. A. Sandgrin, whose contract
is just west of Cascade, will have
his work completed in a couple of
weeks or less.
A good start has been made on
the bridge over Porcupine creek,
where over a million feet of lumber will he used. Supt. Weller is
in charge.
W. T. Krebs, of the paymaster's
office, left on Wednesday evening
for Greenwood, to take charge of
the company's store there. Dr.
Foster accompanied him, and will
take charge of the new hospital
just completed at that point.
There areyet 10 or 12 miles of
right of way that have not been
touched by the graders or the contracts let. Three miles of this is
near Grand Forks and another section is between Greenwood and the
summit. It can be easily finished
in the spring after the snow goes
off, and before the tracklaying
gang reaches it.
McLean Bros., who have the contract for tbe 3,000 foot tunnel, near
Brooklyn, have many difficulties
to contend with, but have nevertheless been pushing steadily ahead
with the bore. On account of
shortness of water, but one boiler
is now in use, running four drills.
In a short time however, all three
boilers will be in use, driving 14
air drills. At the west tnd the
bore is in 400 feet.
Boomer's five miles of work, beginning six or eight miles from
Brooklyn, will be completed in a
few days. He is just finishing up
his 40,000 yard gravel cut, on
which he has had a double shift.
A part of his 40 head of horses is
now employed in general freighting from Brqp-klyn. His firm,
Winters, Parsons & Boomer, have
completed the work on theTrail-
Rossland road, and have a tunnel
down near Lewiston, Idaho, on one
of the new branches there.
Death of Mrs. Francis
This week the grim reaper visited
one of Cascade's homes, and took
to her long reward the wife of a
respected and honored citizen. Mrs.
W. J. Francis died in the Sacred
Heart Hospital, at Spokane, at 4
o'clock Wednesday morning, having undergone an operation for the
removal of a tumor, with which she
had been suffering for some time.
At first she was reported as Improving, but on Tuesday Mr. Francis received telephone messages,
advising him to come at once, as
she was rapidly sinking. He
started without delay, but his wife
had succumbed before he reached
her side.
��� Mrs. Francis was but 27 years of
age, having been brought up at
Hornellsville, New York. The
couple had been married but little,
over a year, and their wedded life
was one of great happiness. The
bereaved husband has the sincerest
sympathy of a wide circle of friends
in. this sad hour, among whom the
publishers of the Record deem it a
privilege to be counted.

SATURDAY, MARCH 4,1899
marl JOINT COMMISSION.
Great hopes were prevalent on
both sides of the international
boundary that the work of the
Anglo-American High Joint Commission would result in good to
those most interested in the well-
fare of both countries. That it
should have adjourned without yet
accomplishing anything tangible is
greutly to be regretted.
Six months ago the commission
commenced its sittings in Canada,
and has, with a small interim, been
constantly at work on the knotty
problems presented to it for adjustment. The commission was appointed to reach an agreement with
a view to the formulation of a
treaty covering the many perplexing differences affecting the business interests of the United States
and Canada. Senator Fairbanks
was chairman of the American
commission and Sir Wilfred Laurier
was acting chairman of the Canadian Commission, in the absence
of Lord Herschell.
At least u dozen important questions were referred to the commission for its consideration. Amuig
these, the lumber interests and the
ce>Mng of an American port in
Alaska, have given the most serious trouble. However both commissions assert that substantial
progress has been made, and feel
confident an agreement can yet be
reached. Adjournment was taken
to August 2d or to such date as the
chairmen might agree upon. It is
to be earnestly hoped that the next
session will be productive of what
has been hoped for.
Greenwood Miner,  and   gave   its
gist entire with a big headline.
Since that time nearly every day
brings papers from far and near,
with that same item rehashed.
Even tbe patent house in Spokane
caught on, and dished up the false
statement in a style of its own to
its numerous patrons.
It is time that a halt was called
to this tomfoolery. Every one of
the papers referred to receives the
Record as fast as our slow mail
service can carry it, and why,
under those circumstances, these
papers should take for authority a
weekly published 30 miles away, is
a mystery.
The fact is that no work whatever has been done on the Cascade
smelter proper. The Record has
no doubt whatever but that work
will be started in due season, for it
is an incontrovertible fact that
Cascade has the key to the situation in the Boundary from a smelter standpoint. Nevertheless the
word should not be sent out yet
that construction has actually
begun when such is not the case.
When there is any news of that
kind, the Record will be the first
to publish it. Such news attracts
numbers of workmen, and we do
not want a host of idle men brought
hither by such misleading items.
The promulgation of misleading
information is a decidedly reprehensible habit, and in the long run
will militate against the promulgator. It is to be hoped that the
boomerang will miss the Greenwood
Miner this time, as the paper probably intended well ; but its zeal to
produce an apparently original
item evidently led it into this unintentional error.
in that riding. But it was love's
labor lost. Even our member, Mr
Martin, whose home is in Rossland, could not secure the desired
increase from $15,000 to $25,000.
What then could be expected for
Eastern Yale?
CARELESS   NEWSPAPER  WORK.
In our issue of February 4th the
Record contained an article headed
" Surveying forithe Smelter," being
a story of the preliminary engineering and examination of local conditions, as being made by Chas, A.
Stoess, C. E., sent here for the purpose by Manager Aldridge, of the
Trail smelter. The Greenwood
Miner, on Feb. 11th, taking our
article of the 4th as a basis, kindly
rewrote it, beginning as follows :
" Work has been commenced on
the new smelter at Cascade," etc.
In a few days the Rossland Miner
had seen the misleading item iu the
The Greenwood Times says that
too many men are now seeking employment in that locality, and that
miners and laboring men generally
are not needed there at the present.
The warning iB timely, but history
repeats itself, and it is not likely
that Greenwood will prove an exception. The Boundary has been
and is being extensively advertised
by its great mineral possibilities,
but the man without means is foolish to come here at present. There
are, however, splendid opportunities for the investment of capital.
April Olh is the date now arranged for the sitting of the Dominion parliament, lt'will probably
be an interesting session. Several
subjects of interest to British Columbians will be brought up, the
most important of which is the
Kettle River railway bill. The
Winnipeg, Nelson, Rossland and
coast papers are already taking
sides on this question. Wonder if
the district most interested is to be
heard on the subject.
Quite a little excitement was
caused in the mining districts of
the province by the announcement
that the tax on the mineral output
would be increased to two per cent.
The denial of the report brought
considerable relief to the owners of
the large producers.
If anyone supposes that Cascade
will submit this year without a
protest to being ignored in the expenditure of government funds for
roads, trails, bridges, etc., he is
reckoning without his host. Certain improvements we must have.
Those interested will please take
due notice.
From the latest reports Rudyard
Kipling, who has been seriously
ill in New York, is recovering. The
uncrowned poet of the English
speaking world is only 33 years
of age, and has gained hosts of
friends by his pen.
Gen Kitchener does not seem to
lie troubled much about the reputed activity of the Khalifa in
Africa. It turns out that the latter
is simply foraging. Evidently he
has had enough of war' for the
present.
It was announced that Rossland
needed a fire chief, and applications were sent in from Dan to
Beer-Sheba, as it were. There
should be no trouble in securing a
competent man.
The new smelter trust Will have
one implacable enemy���the lead
trust. Perhaps some gooH will result from the bitter fight between
these two monopolies that is now
said to be brewing.
Rossland sent Mayor Goodeve to
Victoria to secure an increase of
the appropriation for public works
The legislature was prorogued on
Monday, and Joe Martin kept his
promise of a short session, It is
doubtful, however, if this brevity
was wise, with the important legislation that was needed.

THE OASOADE RECORD
6
BY THE WAYSIDE
The C. P. R.'s efforts to deliver
freight into the Boundary country
via Brooklyn, are a fake���pure and
simple.-'' As stated in the Record
last week, the contractor, Mr.
Koch, or any other man, was not
likely to haul merchandise that 35
or 40 miles very long for 75 cents
per hundred, and the Record was
right. The citation of one case is
sufficient. T. E. Mahaffy received
a iihipment from Winnipeg last
Monday, that came via Brooklyn
(though ordered via Bossburg) and
Mr. Koch charged two cents per
pound for hauling from Brooklyn.
It is unnecessary to add that Mr.
Mahaffy was and is much incensed
at this.
It seems that the Greenwood
merchants finally agreed to pay
two cents, although the first rate
from Brooklyn was quoted at one
and a half cents. Wonder how
they will feel when they receive a
few consignments with say a three
cent road freight rate attached ?
The C. P. R. is fast making enemies
by this plan of delivering merchandise to freighters, who can hold
merchants up for any figure they
see fit. As stated in the Record, if
they want the business, there is but
one way to secure it, and that is to
quote a through rate to destination, guarantee that rate and control the freighting outfits themselves.
For a couple of days this week
Cascade has had a visitor in the
person of C. E. Cole, deputy sheriff
from Spokane, who came to search
for William Albi, who murdered
James Lacy in a Spokanegambling
den on February 18th. It was
thought that Albi, who has a
couple of brothers on tho railway
work in this vicinity, bad made
for British Columbia, and was disguised as a woman. Constable
Darraugh was notified by telephone, and kept a sharp outlook
for the fugitive, who it Was believed
would seek cover in some of the
Italian railway camps on the new
line. It is now thought, however,
by Mr. Cole, that Albi is still in
the vicinity of Spokane. Mr. Cole
followod one man to Cascade, feeling certain that he had the murderer, but it proved to be a cousin
of Albi, who bore a great resemblance.
Mr. Cole related to a Record man
his thrilling meeting with the
murderer at the ranch of Scarpelli.
some 12 miles east of Spokane.
With another deputy he was
searching all tbe farm houses in
that neighborhood, without success,
and had gone through the lower
portion of the Scarpelli house,
when he started upstairs to search
the upper story. "Just as I got
up stairs," sii id M r. Cole.il I stepped
into a large room, from which two
smaller rooms opened, As I put
my foot into the big room, I was
commanded to halt, and then I
saw Albi just looking around the
doorway from one of the smaller
rooms, with a Winchester rifle,
drawing a bead on rue."
"Did you gracefully back out,"
asked the Record representative.
" No, I stood there and talked
with him for 15 or 20 minutes,
hoping he would lower hie gun or
give me a show, but he did not.
He said he. would murder me if I
advanced another step, and as he
had the drop, I did not advance.
I told him he might as well give
up, as we'd get him anyway, but
he couldn't see it in that light. If
I'd had my hand on my gun when
I entered the room, I'd he a dead
man now, sure. I have been connected with the sheriff's office for
years, and this is the first time I
was ever held up. But, as it happened there was no help for it."
C. H. Thomas visited the Forks
last Tuesday, and says the Columbia Stage Line people are trying a
new scheme to bridge the river at
the old government ferry, this side
of Grand Forks. The bridge, just
completed that day, consists of long
logs laid on the ice and chained
end to end, being also fastened to
each hank with iron chains. Then
the planking wap laid crosswise, as
usual. It is intended to be used
also as a floating bridge when the
ice goes out. Just what will happen if this unique apology for a
bridge is used when high water
comes, remains to he seen. It is
not unlikely that travellers will be
speculating as to which one of the
sand hars they are likely to be
landed on when the bridge breaks
away with a stage load of passengers���a not unlikely thing to
happen.
-%-
The Bank of Montreal is, perhaps, the greatest financial institution on the North American
continent, but some of its Nelson
branch employees should take a
special course in geography, and
ascertain where Cascade is. On
the 13th of February they sent a
package containing $1902 in hills
to Louis Peterson, of the firm of
W. H. Cooper & Co., of this city.
Not receiving it promptly, the
bank was advised hy wire, and replied that the package had been
entrusted to the mails on the 13th.
No trace whatever could be found
of it until last Saturday night,
when a couple of men- -strangers���
walked into Mr. Cooper's office,
laid the package down, and demanded $29.50 charges thereon.
They said they got it " somewhere"
in Columbia. The $1902 was
found to be all there.
isV
It appears that the package was
sent by Dominion Express from
Nelson, and travelled via Revelstoke, Penticton and Greenwood to
reach Cascade. It bore the seal
of the Bank of Montreal, and was
enclosed in an express envelope.
The charges were outrageous, for
one could travel to Nelson and
back and pay all expenses for much
less. Over $15 per thousand is an
expensive way of transmitting
money from Nelson to Cascade.
The case is now being investigated.

MIDWAY TO PENTICTON.
Text of the $4,000 Per Mile Subsidy
BUI.
The bill which the Attorney-
General introduced to grant a subsidy to a railway between Midway
and Penticton , his the following
provisions:'
There is hereby granted for and
in aid of the construction of a
standard guage railway from a
point at or near Midway to a point
at or near Penticton, or some,other
point on Lake Okanagan, approximately one hundred miles in length
a sum not exceediug four thousand
dollars per mile.
The Lieut-Governor in Council
may enter into any agreement with
any person or company undertaking the construction and operation
' of such railway.
Said subsidy shall not be payable
until the railway is completed and
in running order to the satisfaction
of the Lieut.-Governor in Council
nor until security or guarantees
satisfactory to the Lieut.-Governor
in!Council is or are given for the
continuous maintenance and oper-
tion of the railway.
In case said subsidy is granted
to a railway company entitled to a
land grant for the construction of
such line, the same shall only be
payahle in case said company
abandons its claim to such land
grant.
No Chinese or Japanese person
shall be employed or permitted to
work in the construction or operation of any railway 8ub*idized
under this act, under a penalty of
five dollars jier day for���each-and
every Chinese or Japanese person
so employed in contravention of
this section, to be recovered on
complaint of any person, under the
provisions " Summary Convictions
Act."
The Lieut.-Governor in Council
may incorporate any number of
persons as a railway company for
the purpose of constructing and
operating such railway and receiving such subsidy, and any provision contained in any railway
charter passed during the present
session of the Legislative Assembly
may he aoplied to such company.
Such company shall be subject to
he  "British  Columbia   Railway
eaid subsidy shall not he given
to any railway company not under
the exclusive jurisdiction of the
Province of British Columbia.
Promising Boundary
Every man, says an exchange,
now brings fresh news of important
transfers of mining property in the
Boundary Creek district, and other
tidings testifying to the substantial
progress and growth that is taking
place in the promising section of
South Yale. The announcement���
the confirmation of which we have
received from a reliable private
source���that the C. P. R. contemplate the erection of a large smelter at Cascade City, presumably,
or rather, necessarily in addition
to the building of similar works
either at Greenwood or Midway, is
to the highest degree gratifying to
the "old-timer" in the Boundnry
Creek district, who has staunchly
maintained his confidence in the
ultimate future of the camp, in the
face of every discouragement and
drawback, and after some five, or
six years of waiting thus begins to
���ee hie fondest dreams realising.
Almost a Klondike " rush" in
minature it may be expected will
take place this spring to Boundary
Creek, and already prospectors and
miners' from the Slocan and other
West and East Kootenay districts
are migrating ; thither in large
numbers.
He Kicked and Lost His Job
Provincial Constable Lowe, of
Kelowna, has lieen dismissed by
the. Attorney-General. Some1 time
ago M r. Lowe received notice that
he was to remove to Gladstone, a
new town on the Robson and Midway railway, the Attorney-General
having decided to abolish the position of constable at Kelowna. Mr.
Lowe requested that he be given
some other post, and a single man
sent to Gladstone, which at present
is a rough construction camp, and
an unfit place to take a woman or
young children. Board at Gladstone costs $40 to $45 per month,
and out of a constable's salary of
$65 (no horse allowance) it would
be impossible for him to live there
and keep his family elsewhere.
This request would seem a fairly
reasonable one, but its reply came
in the shape of a notice that his
services were no longer required.���
