LAND AT CASCADE.  A special to the Proviuce from  Grand Forks says:���������From word  that has reached here from Cascade it appears that the the little  town is about to experience a new  era of prosperity. It seems that  George K. Stocker, the individual  owner of the townsite of Cascade,  which consists of about two thousand acres of bench land, is negotiating at present with an American  company for the purchase of. the  Cascade townsite for a price reported to bo $."50,000.  li this deal which is  now  pending is closed, the new owners  will  utilize the  famous  Cascade  Piills  for   irrigation   purposes and   will  irrigate not only the Cascade town-  site, but all thevast extent of lands  lying between Cascade and Laurier  station  on  the    Great    Northern  Railway, where it is estimated several thousand acres'of fine orchard  land  can  be  made.    It is openly  hinted that it is this fruit land and  the irrigation plan that is the  real  inducement for the buying  of  the  Cascade  townsite  more  than   the  value of the real estate of the town-  site.    Tin! residents of Cascade aro  most enthusiastic-  over  tho  prospects of the deal, as  it  means the  immediate settlement in their midst  of many families on ten-acre  plots  of orchil I'd'land.  HIS UPS AND  DOWNS.  A few years ago, Charles Sweeney of Spokane made a living by  lobbying at sessions of tho legislature at Hoise City, Idaho, and by  holding subordinate Federal positions".' ~A't~tlie~"time,   though";   lie-  d'Alenes,   but tho mines  were in  litigation.    His side filially won in  the    courts,    and    through  sharp  practices and collusion with  court  receivers he acquired other mining-  properties,    fiven then he was not  a "capitalist."    But he  had gall  and some of the men with him had  brains.    Between   them   they  got  the Standard  Oil   crowd  in   Now  York to help organize tlm Federal  Mining & Smelting Company  with  a   capital    of .millions.    Sweeney  and his associates put in the mines  and  Rockefeller  and   Rogers and  George Gould put iu.the cash. The  combinations was a'hard one to go  up against, especially as the mines  were    good   ones.    The - Guggen-  heims,    owners . of  the   American  Smelting   &   Refining    Company,  were placed in a position that they  had  competitors," something  they  did not want.    Another  combination   was    formed,   and    Charles  Sweeney retired with  several  millions, which  he  invested  in  Spokane and Portland real estate and  in politic-3, and of late  in"buying  stocks on margin  on  Wall  street.  Between politics and  stock  speculations  bis  losses  were  so. heavy  that he is selling'or mortgaging his  real estate holding to pay bis debts.  Before long he will be back in Spokane makinga living by "working"'  in what the late George MacAnlay  called "Spokane's Poker Zone."���������  Prince Rupert Empire.  terior'mining districts with the object of purohasing a copper proposition.

As a matter of fact, he  lost the money, for I am told the  alleged mines are worthless. The  experience of my friend, however,  does not discourage me, as J believe that British Columbia presents opportunities for the profitable investment'of capital in mining  enterprises not surpassed by any  other part of the globe. An examination of tbe mining statistics of  British Calumbia" during recent  years conveys some veryl uininous  information."  .Leave your order with ns for  black currants and get them fresh.

Tuesday evening Grand Chancellor Hammar, of the Grand Domain of British  Columbia,   visited  ' Phoenix lodge, K. of P.". A number of knights from Midway and  Greenwood went up to meet tlie (J.  O. .and visit No. 28. The ranks of  Es(fuli'������>fMid-IClught were put on  and tho work done by the Phoenix  team was highly praised hy all the  visitors. After the lodge business  was   concluded,   a   banquet    was  _ given in tho Brooklyn hotel, which  was not tho least pleasing part of a  very pleasant evening. A number  of speeches wore niado and songs  sung, and a hearty toast drunk to  Mine Host Mnrshull for thc excellence of the spread, and /'Auld  Lang,Syne" about .'{'clock.'  Sam Mighton struck the trail to  fortune when he landed in Cra'n-  brook.

Blue ruin peddlers are proclaiming thc crops a failure east of tho  Rockies. However in spite of this  'J1,000 men are being brought from  tho east to harvest the crops.

A party leaves this week  to go oyer tho routo between Midway and Vernon for tho purpose of  investigating the advantages and  disadvantages, making a careful  estimate of possible tonnage and  traffic and probable cost of construction.  The party consists of W. R.  Morris, of London, England, representing tho company negotiating for the charter, and supposed  to bo controlled by the C. P. R,;  R. A. Bainbridge, of Vancouver,  engineer of the Pacific division of  the C. P. R.; A. IvE. Rice, of Seattle, representing the holders of tho  charter; Mr. Toinlinson, who previously made a favorable report upon tho proposed route, and Ed.  Austin, a C. P. R. engineer located  at Revelstoke.  A satisfactory ending of this trip  means the expenditure of two million dollars between Midway and  Penticlon. It is quite likely that  the construction of the DO mile3 between these two towns would be  rushed to completion and eventually the road extended from IVn-  ticton to Nicola making it possible  to' reach the. coast from the Boundary in about fifteen hours. The  building of the road means much to  Greenwood and more to Midway.  Already in the latter town the  light of hope is shining in the eyes  of its citizens.  "2  THE COKE FAMINE.  GRAND FORKS.  A "Whije Canada is now the cry  amongst the labor men of Winnipeg, and they will use every efEort  to decrease the brown and yellow  scabs now becoming fo common in  B..O. _____ *  O. P. Hill must be happy, even  if his friends do call him Chippy.  The II.

A find of coking coal is reported  at Granite Crook. Tt is regretted  that somebody cannot discover a  hill-of real coke around Grand  Forks and Greenwood.  AVm. Dacre says the government  is very considerate to plant fish in  Christina lake for his especial benefit, as he hauled out quite a mess  last week, among them being a six-  pound black bass.  A Vancouver dispatch says that  R. L. Borden, leader of the Conservative party of Cauada, will  visit Grand Forks on September 30.  Local Conservatives say that this  is a mistake, and that that this  city is not .included in Mr. liov-  den's itinerary.  W. J.

Closing: of tlie Smelters.  While  the shutting down of the  smelters for lack of coke is variously attributed  to heavy shipments  across the Iine'and to lack of miners in  tho collieries it is becoming  more  evident  daily  that  the coal  companies of eastern   British  Columbia and Alberta chose the wrong  time for lighting  their  men.    For  whatever the effect'the exportation  of coke  may have as a cause of  scarcity of smelting fuel  it is of  much less importance than the impossibility of increasing tho output  of coal with  the present  force of  arrangements for the running of an.. mjIU,r9.

"W. J. Brown, who recently purchased the McConnel ranch, east of  the city,   has  a deal   pending for  the salt: of :!7<> acres of  that  property to some fifteen   families  from  Indian      Head,      Alta.    Messrs.  vWhite  IFood,  of that place, who  aro acting for the purchasers,   arrived  in   the  city   last Thursday,  and after inspecting the ranch  returned  to   Indian Head on Friday  evening   to   make   their    report.  They were highly pleased with the  land, anil the deal will bo closed as  soon as they  return  to this city.  Tho land will  be subdivided,  and  f  recovered   from the strike of last  spring.   Tho settlement failed   to  settle the most  important  half of  the question at issue���������namely that  the best men as well as the  worst  should return to work on tho terms  arranged.    We pointed out some  time ago that the strike had driven  many of the most experienced iniii-  ei'H into other, employments   and  that tho wages olVercd.iu   thc  collieries ditl not tempt thorn  to  return.    Wo are now informed that  many  of  them are working in the  metalliferous    mines  where  there  are at  once plrasanter conditions  less danger to bo encountered  and  more  money  to  be earned..   Tho  simple truth is that  the operators  must  ri'vine  tho schedule    which  they forced   from   the  unions  last  spring and must level it  up.   The  ���������eiile is below tbe general scale of    au & Co's.  n * g  the country or their" men would  not leave them to find employment  elsewhere.    The other cause of the  shortage of coke, exportation, need  not be operative at all if the mines  are sufiiciently manned.    So long,  however, as this is not the case it  is simply outrageous that our  own  industries should conic to a  standstill  while   the   very    companies  whose mismanagement has brought  about this  result  derive  a  bigger  profit   from   supplying  a   foreign  market.    We are  under  ihe  impression that the terms  on   which  the coal areas of British   Columbia  are mined were drawn up with the  object of preventing the sending of  coke and coal out of British Columbia so long as local needs were  not  fully supplied, but we are not aware  The ci'3' for more coke is heard  in the Boundary. It is reported  in tbe press that coke is scarce because the wages are not , high  enough at the ovens to keep a sufficient number of men at work. Tt  is also said that much coke is shipped to Montana leaving the home  smelters to grow smokeless.for the  lack   of  the  black stuff.    It looks!  that just as as long as tho Crow's j at present.  Nest Pass Coal Co. is' doing business the country will have trouble.  The  poor,   unfortunate   company  does not seem able half the time to  keep its employees in love with the  management or its customers sup-  nowin use, even with a reduced  output at the ovens, due to lack of  cars, etc., the Dominion. Copper  Bo. which uses less coke than tho  other Boundary smelters, has been  ablo to Recure an ample supply  thus far.  Tho British Columbia Copper Co.  has a contract with the West Canadian Collieries, Ltd., of Lille, Alberta, for its entire coke output,  but the B. C. Copper Co. has increased its smelting capacity faster  than have the collieries,' the immediate result being that fch������* B. C.  Copper Co. runs short of coke.  Then manager McAllister of tho  B. C. Copper Co., arranged for the -  surplus coke obtainable from the  International Coal and Coke Co.,  after the-Dominion Copper Co.'s  needs are filled, but latterly this  has not been sufficient to assist the  the B. C. Copper Co. to run its  smelter at full capacity.     ' ���������     -  There have been several coTTtrib-  utory causes to the coke shortage  now existing in the Boundary. Ju  addition to the railway companies'  troubles iu furnishing the necessary cars and also in moving them  the (,\ P. R. lost a barge or two  of coke in the. transfer on Ivootenay  lake a week or two since. Then,  last week the caving of a'tunnel on  the Great Northern railway, east of  Spokane, tied-np that company's  ability to deliver coke to the Granby smelter from Fcrnie for the  time being. This, however, is expected to be in shape again by Monday, when the Granby smelter will  resume.  Briellv, Hie above is the coke situation in   tho   Bouudary  and  both  smelter and railway managers are  endeavoring to find some solution  of the difficulty, so that the industry of mining and smelting shall  not be so badly hampered in the  future. That such a solution will  be found, is without question, but  how long it will take is not known  Resolution of Condolence.

The  people  of  .Jnpiin defeated the   whole  empire  of Russia: they have the most  decided views as to their own destiny,  as to their own  ability  and  their  patriotism is one of bodily sacrifice  as compared to vocal effort on   the  part of those who might antagonize  them.

Mexico in the  past has been plundered shamefully; fully one sixth of the present  area of the United States was torn  from that unfortunate country. At  various time the United States has  threatened the Sultan of Turkey, at one time they declared war  on the Bay of Tunis, .Uncle Sam  drove Spain from the western  world and he has bullied, paterua-  li/.ed and patronized the Spanish-  American republics at will, finally  seizing the Isthmus of Panama.  .Vow comes the little brown man  and gives the American people a  frightful jolfr. Ho sends no cerc-  moniouB message; he does business  by telephone. He has rung up the  terrible Teddy and has demanded  satisfaction. Teddy would like to  club the small man but he is astonished to find that his big stick has  disappeared and that no arms are  at hand.  The occasion of .'Japan's demands  on the United StateR is the ezclus-  ion of Japanese children from the.  public schools of San I'ranciHco.  The Japs won't stand it. At least  that is the ostensible ground on  which their demands are based,  though the idea is entertained in  other quarters that their ultimate  purpose is to take the Philippines  and Sandwich Islands, and compel  the United States and all others to  keep out of Asia altogether. The  Biiflsian war swelled the head of  the little brown man, and it is believed that he now aims at dominating China and tne entire east,  and ultimately establishing a great  Asiatic Empire that shall rival the  glories of ancient Koine. Tho situation   is  exciting alarm  in  the  The   Japanese  on   the   Pacific  coast of the United Stales are now  leaving   San   Francisco   in   great  numbers and moving  up  to  Vancouver.    The people of British Columbia don't  want them;  but  by  treaty  between   Great Britain and  Japan, we have  no  power   to  exclude them.     Indications point in  the    direction  of an  approaching  Japanese  problem  for "Canada  as  the United  States.    Tn  the event  of war will  Great  Britain  permit  the Japanese vessels to harbor, and  the   Japanese  troops  to  laud,   in  Canada, and will there  be  an  invasion from Canada?   These questions are suggested'by  the  Anglo-  Japanose alliance.    If the   United  States is comparatively defenceless  the condition of Canada is certainly worse.     Tt seems impossible,   in  the event of a  long war,   but  that  Canada would become the  theatre  of* military    activities.     Indeed,  there are many  who believe that  the white people of Canada  would  side  with the  United States in a  color war,  without regard  to  the  imperial government.'  our labor is rewarded.

An enterprising press would record  every military, naval, financial and  strategic preparation in hourly editions and big red type.    The Japanese agents at the end of the cables would know more  about our  strength and preparation than our  own government.    When our 'far-  I flung , battle Hue'  began to move  some yellow maniac with a megaphone would bawl its every mile of  route, its every weakness of imperfect   discipline and hasty equipment from the Admiral's bridge to  -fc]ic waiting ears of Japanese agents  in Europe.and America.

"The cat "that made me famous"  said Williams,  "like'many famous  men,   had  a( humble pedigree.    I  picked her up iu an alley in Seattle  between First and Second  Avenue  one night 'in August 1897.    Next  day I went north.    I brought the  cat along for company as  it was  my first trip and 1 had no thought  then of making a profit of it.

By Canada Isle Royal has nevi r  been coveted. It is not that .we  object to the expense ,of 'maintaining the lights, but that we have no  particular use for a non-commercial proposition. There is nothing  to bo grown on the island, and nobody wants to live there. Why,  then should Canada envy the possessors of this piece of land?  The theory that a Canadian captain would "take" the island is absurd. - It would be more reasonable to suppose that the United  States had lured the mariner to  the spot and had unloaded the  island upon him. But, if a Canadian captain had "taken" the island, our Government in view of  the fact that the property is not  ours, and we do not oven desire to  own it, would be in duty bound to  peremptorily aud firmly order the  offender to "put it back."   ���������  Green cucumbers, tomatoes, turn  ips, carrots and other vegetables  at the busy store.

On almost every bill of fare are  seen the words 'porterhouse steak.'  Now,  most  people  know  what a  porterhouse    steak  is,   having on  some occasion eaten one, or at least  a piece of beef that  went  by  that  name,   but. few people know how  the name originated.    Years ago  there was a hostlery near Harvard  University  kept' by" a man named  Porter.    Soon this  tavern   became  famous for its viands, especially for  its  cuts  of  meats. - The stranger  Jtpprjujgjhe^ejf_c������j^rneal  and  not  knowing  exactly  what   to   order  would   be advised  by  his genial  host, Mr. Porter, to order a steak.  So good were his steaks that  travellers   often   spoke of them and  gradually began referring to  them  as the "steak you get at Porter's  house."    From that it was  but a  short time before they were referred to as the "Porter House steak."  Since then  butchers all  over  the  country have found  out the way  in which Mr. Porter cut his famous  steak, and have been  making the  same cuts themselves,  hence the  porterhouse steak has been served  the countr3'.    Only a month or so  so ago the old Porter House was  moved back to make room for the  row of tenement, houses that are  being built in  front of it.���������New  York.

Excitement has been aroused  in  I the'United States owing to the publication  of a   report   announcing  that a'Canadian captain, sailing on  a gasolino launch,   has  landed  on  Isle Royal, and has "taken it"   in  the name of the King.    The island  is that piece of rock-bound wilderness which  lies  athwart Thunder  Bay.    Tt seems to have been placed  on its present sito  by  nature  for  the distinct purpose  of protecting  the great Canadian harbor on Lako  Superior.    A mass of rock,  it may  havo a  few   fertile   valleys;    but  if so these aro far apart,   and  not  very attractive.  The climate is fairly  pleasant���������  for about one month   in   the year;  at other times it is intolerable,   for  tho winds of the most northerly of  the fresh water lakes sweep tho island from  January  to  December.  Planted many miles from  land on  the  bosom "of a rather turbulent  inland sea, thc place is inaccessible  for more than half the year, and is  reached only with diiliculty  whon  not thus absolutely isolated.

Willie's Essay on "Cat."  This is a cat. A cat is not an  animals, it's a nuisance. Cats eat  rats. So do Chinamen. Cats  tails swell with wrath at sight of  a dog. Cats has mean dispositions  and spit at each other. Once  when Pa came home late from sitting up with a sick friend, Ma said,  "What a long tail our cat's got.*'  But I don't see as it's no longer  than other cats. Cats' habits is  bad, as they stay out all night aud  steal fish. That's cause their  mothers have such large families  they can't bring them up proper.  Cats.is is only useful because fiddle striugs is made from their stomachs. High-toned cats is called  felines and Angoras. A cut can  lick a dog but prefers to climb a  tree. Cats has nine lives and so  don't need insurance. Cats is such  bad luck that when any gets killed  they call it a catastrophe.

During the  night when the train was running  slowly over some still, mountainous country, a soft feminine voice  told John that she wanted a drink  of water.  ������������ "All right, do.ar," replied John.  "The cooler is only a step down  the aisle."  "But how shall I know which  berth is ours when I come back?"  she asked timidly.  "I will stick my foot out in the  aisle," said John, "then you can't  miss it."  When she came back there was  a huge sized foot sticking out of  every berth in the aisle.���������Ex.   ���������  Branches Throughout Canada, and m the United States  and England.
