��Q.OO Per Year
Boards of Trade With Government System To
Connect With Towns Along Shuswap Lake
And Are Circulating Petition.
The meeting of the Board of Trade on
Monday night was well attended. In
the absence of the president, A. McConnell, the vice-president,' E. E.
Brooks took the chair. Several matters
of importance came before the meeting, including the proposed extension of
telephone lines, the appointment of delegates to the provincial convention of
boards of trade, and the matter of cooperation with the Vancouver Progress
Club in the work of industrial development.
A communication from a committee
of the Kamloops Board of Trade waa
read by the secretary aaking the cooperation of the Chaae Central Board
of Trade in urging an extension of the
government telephone service along the
lake aa far aa Sicamous. A resolution
was passed giving to the movement the
endorsement of the Board, and a petition already drawn up by Mr. McConnell wu signed by those present.
It waa mentioned aa very desirable
that the extension should include the
settlements on the north side of the
lake, aa these have no telegraphic
The Board has been asked to appoint
delegates to a convention to be held in
Vernon on the 24th and 26th of October
to form an association of the Boards of
Trade of the province to advance tha
general interests of the country. The
following extract from a letter received
by Secretary Haylock, will explain the
object aimed at.
"A meeting of persons Interested in
the development of the Province was
held in New Westminster City Hall oh
Tuesday, October 1, to consider the advisability of forming a provincial organisation that would facilitate co-operation between all Boards of Trade snd
other public  bodies of the province.
Liberal   Association at Cranbrook
Gives Smoker in Honor of
Senator Bostock.
Cranbrook, Oct. 21.- A largely attended smoker, given in honor of Senator Hewitt Bostock, by the Cranbrook
Liberal Association, brought out a most
enthusiastic attendance which complete -
ly filled the hall in which it was held.
The occasion of Senator Bostock passing through Cranbrook on his way to
the Dry Farming Congress at Lethbrldge was taken advantage of by the
association to get ita members together
and, start a season of monthly meetings in the interest of the party locally
and keep its powder safe and ready for
use when they are again called upon to
battle wi th] their opponents.
Ready For a Siege.
Grant and Ballard are determined
that if war breaks out in this oart of
the world Chase shall be prepared to
stand a siege. They have en i ''' at
present about fifty head of caUle,
nearly two hundred sheep, and about a
hundred pigs.
Mr. Grant this week bought a number of cattle from the Ross ranch and
twenty-three from ranchers along the
north side of Shuswap Lake, most of
them from Capt. Hilham. The cattle
were bought on foot in the woods and
as some of them have run wild from
birth an interesting time is looked for in
rounding them up.
Watermelons are getting so plentiful
around Obar that farmers are feeding
them to the hogs. We had several
this week.���Obar, (N. M.) ProgreBB. ���
Representatives were present from
Vancouver, New Westminster, Delta,
Burnaby, Nelson, Penticton, Kamloops,
and Coquitlam.
The opinion prevailing at the meeting wu that such an organization
might be capable of accomplishing a
great deal of good, especially in the
promotion of the settlement of agricultural lands, improved transportation
facilities and other measures of general
interest It wu felt that common action of all the Boards of Trade and
other public bodies of the province
would carry more weight with the
Government and the public than the independent actions of individual organisations, and also, that such co-operation would lead to a far better understanding throughout the province of
the problems confronting each particular section."
Messrs. E. E. Brooks and A. E.
underwood were appointed u delegates
and in the event of their not being able
to leave town at that time, which Mr.
Brooks said wu possible, Messrs, G. G.
Chase and R. P. Bradley were appointed u alternates.
The Vancouver Progress Club hu established in connection with Its work
an Industrial and Development Bureau
to enable it to give enquirers authentic
and specific information on all parte of
the province. A comprehensive Hat of
questions concerning the resources and
social conditions of the town and district wu turned over to the advertising
committee to be answered.
A pleulng variation of the routine
business of the Board wu the introduction by the chairman of Mr. Doyle, who
hu recently arrived from Stillwater,
Minnesota, and hu accepted a position
with tha Adams River Lumbar Com*
Board of Trade Dance.
The dance given on Friday night by
the Chase Central Board of Trade wu
a Buccess from every point of view.
The attendance wu large,'including
strong contlngenta from Shuawap and
Celista and everybody in Chase who
dances and a good many who don't.
The music, furnished'by Messrs. Buckingham and Bragg of Blind Bay and
Celista respectively, with Miss Stewart
of Chase at the piano, was 0. K.
Harry Fowler u floor manager kept
things alive from before nine until
4. SO a. m.
In the early part of the evening the
room wu more than filled, so that not
many more than half thoae present
were dancing at one time. This state
of affairs prevailed until after refreshments had been served at midnight.
Then some of those who, as one expressed it, look upon dancing as a
duty, and others who remembered that
they, had to work the next day, began
gradually to leave more room for the
This first big dance of the season promises to be the beginning of a success*

Parliament Called.
Ottawa, Oct. 21.��� The proclamation
calling Parliament together for transaction of business on Thursday, Noy*
ember 21, was issued by the King's
printer to-day. It contains the usual
proclamation, there being no special
reference to the navy announcement
which will be a special feature of the
session. It is not necessary that it
should be mentioned. However, the
announcement of the temporary naval
policy of the government will be made
soon after the House meets, probably
right after the conclusion of the debate
on the address. This will probably run
over several days.
Canada provides only $10,600,000 of
theC. P. R. .$105,000,000 of new money;
while Europe and America give $94,500
Important Visit of the Commissioner
of the Department of
the Interior.
S. Maber, the commissioner of the
department of the interior to investigate conditions of land settlement in
the railway belt of this province with a
view to formulating a new and more
satisfactory policy for the administration of thou lands, hu been in the district this week inquiring into the claims
of squatters on timber berths.
On Monday, accompanied by representatives of Chaae Central Board of
Trade, he went over the timber limits
of the Adams River Lumber company;
and later went with J. E. Bland df the
Arrow Lakea company, to appraise the
claims of squatters on the areas held
by that firm. Where there is little
standing timber on the disputed quarter
sections it is probable that the squatters' claims will be allowed.
Five Million Feet Will be Dropped
From the Mountain into
the Lake.
Not all the logs to be cut on the new
limits this winter are to be brought out
by way of the flume on Bear Creek.
Five million feet of them will be hauled
to the top of the mountain across the
lake and slide down a dry sluice into
the Little Shuawap Lake.
The work of constructng the sluice is
now in progress and the cutting of logs
has commenced. The camp is in charge
of camp foreman Lavigne.
The president of the company, J. P.
McGoldrick, hu been in town for a
couple of days this week. He left for
Vancouver yesterday in company with
A. J. Lammers, the vice-president, and
Geo. A. Lammers, one of the directors.
From Vancouver the Messrs. Lammers
expects to proceed to their home in
Stillwater and Mr. McGoldrick to
A Week of Conventions.
This is a week of conventions. The
convention of B. C. municipalities
meets at Revelstoke on Tuesday and
Wednesday, the Board of Trade convention at Vernon on Wednesday snd
Thursday, and the Provincial Conservative Association at Revelstoke on
Thursday and Friday.

friends of the late Mr. Hutchinson for
their sympathy in their sad bereavement

Shuswap Valley
While to the manufacture of lumber
must be conceded ths leading position
In th* industrial life of Chue st ths
present dsy, the first whits men who
ssttlsd here were not at sll interested
ln the timber resources of the country.
When ln 1868 Whitfield Chaae tamed his
bsck upon the Cariboo and its glittering
prospects and bought some of the seres
thst now make up the Chue ranch, it
was not the forested hills but the open
vsllsys that held for him thepromiaeof
the future. Fucinating u it would be
to follow the fortunes of this conqueror
of the wilderness, that pleuure must
be postponed to s future issue. He is
Introduced here merely to show that it
wu the wealth of the soil and not of
the forest that led to the first settlement in this district.
Turning away our eyes, then, from
those interesting years *when on the
fertile acres of the Shuswap meadows,
under the hand of the industrious pioneer,
the willow scrub wu slowly giving place
to timothy and clover, we fix our attention on the process of land settlement u it iB going on in the Shuswap
Valley at the present time.
Farmers Taking Up Land.
You didn't know there wu any land
settlement going on? Why, all the way
from Ducks at one end to Seymour Arm
and Malakwa at ths other, a distance
of a hundred miles or mora, the choice
spots are being selected every day by
men who have their eyes open towarbs
to-morrow. They don't announce by
megaphone what they are doing or are
going to do, for they are squatters, and
in danger of having their claims jumped
if they don't sit close. But in a steady
and quiet stream men who will make
good farmers are moving on to the unoccupied homesteads. It is safe to say
that more than a hundred settlers have
gone on to the land in the last year.
A hundred others have their places
chosen and will be,found in line in front
of the land office on the morning when
the land is thrown open for entry.
Wbat Two Men Have Done.
For a mite east of Chase where the
railway skirts the lake the ground rises
by not too steep a slope for quarter of a
mile or more before it breaks abruptly
to form the northern face of the hill.
It was generally believed tbat all the
land there was there that was any good
was owned by a corporation. Two
young men of inquiring mind found that
only a very narrow atrip on the lake
front belongs to the corporation. They
appropriated good land in the rur, and
laid claims to properties that when
cleared snd cultivated will be worth at
a modest utimate five thousand dollars
sach. The first inkling that many had
that there wu anything there worth
looking after wu when they saw teams
at work hsuling off the logs and piling
them at the edge of the ice on the lake
shore to be sold ti the mills, This is
one example of whst hu been going on
quietly In many places throughout the
district.     *
Chase Ihe Gateway.
Not only hu the mill furnished a
markst for the few logs removed from
the settler's land, it has been a potent
factor in bringing the future farmer in
sight of his opportunity. Those Who
have known Chue for two or three
years can name not a few who were
brought here by the opening for employment which the mill affords and
afterwards took the chance presented
of becoming land owners and getting a
life job in which the wages would be
meuured by their own industry, and
Intelligence. From various lands they
have come, from eastern Canada, England, the United States, Belgium.
Whatever their race they may become
children of the soil and good Canadian
Coming to the Front.
But what has been done in the way of
settlement in the past few years is only
the prelude to the big things that will
be doing in the near future after the
lands so long held in reserve are thrown
open for entry. To the impetus that
" ill th : ' (riven to farming in the
Shuswap Valley may be added the boost
that will follow the opening of the
Indian reserves recommended by Dr.
McKenna. The triumphs of the Salmon
Arm fruit growers this falf in all the
fairs at which they exhibit show what
the soil and climate can do with help of
a little care and intelligent effort. It
is plain that in the world's markets for
agricultural products the farmers of
this district have nothing to fear. It is
hard to concieve of any combination of
circumstances that can keep the country around Shuswap Lake from coming to the front rank as a source of
supply for fruit and other food products,
if, indeed, it is not already there.

Loans to Settlers.
Hoi) Prlcej Ellison^ who hu gitveri
many striking evidences of his thorough
understanding of the needs of tha agri*
cultural industry of this province, hu
com* out strongly in favor of the proposal thst ths government should come
to the suistance of new settlers in the
wsy of loans at a low rate of interest.
In the course of sn interview at Victoria recently, upon hia return from
the upper country, he ia quoted u uy-
It is my firm conviction that if agriculture is to be properly developed in
this province, some means must be found
of supplying the farmers with chesp
money. The province hu several million dollars on hand and I csnnot see
why it should not be loaned to the farm-
era at a low rate of interest Instead
of being loaned to the banks.
There is no apparent reason why Mr.
Ellison's suggestion should not be carried into effect, but should there be
sny objection to loaning government
funds in the way proposed, it is hard
to ue why money should not be raised
for the purpose on the province's credit
and re-loaned to agriculturists u is
done in Now Zesland, Australia and
elsewhere. The whole matter, it may
be added, hu been more or less before
the government for some time, but action in the matter, if any is to be taken,
will probably be delayed until after the
proposed agricultural commluion hu
been appointed and hu concluded ita
labors and made its report.
When that commission is engaged
upon ita work, it would be well, therefore, If all those interested would place
before Ita members the necessity for
some action along the lines of supplying settlers with money, and at a rea
sonable rate of interest, for the development of these properties. At present
millions upon millions of dollars worth
of soil products are being imported into
British Columbia each year. There is
no reason why practically all of these
imports should not be produced at
home. All that prevents this being
done is the present backward state of
agriculture in the province, due to a
very large extent, to lack of capital on
the part of those engaged in the industry*
Anything which the government may
do to assist agriculture in the way of
loans to bona fide settlers will be a move
in the interests of British Columbia and
of all its people.
The deputy minister of public works,
Mr. Foster, is expected in Chase on his
return from the Conservative Association in Revelstoke. The needs of the
town and district in the way of roads
etc. will be placed before him by representatives of the residents.
Adams River Company Sends To
Alberta The Largest Car of
Lumber Ever Shipped.,
On October 19th the Adams River
Lumber Company ahipped to the Imperial Lumber Company, Wainwright,
Alberta, in car No. 33371, 42500 feet
No. 2 Common Cedar Hoards surfaced

establishes a world's record.
The American Lumberman states that
the Enterprise Lumber Company of
Alexandria, La., ahipped 43200 feet 2x4

this time, but as this stock ia Burfacsjd

Dominion Engineer Makes Journey
Around Big Bend of
Columbia River.
Revelstoke, B. C, Oct. 21.���Ths Hon.
Fred W. Aylmer, Dominion engineer,
spent several days in ths city this weak.
He has just concluded an official-trip
around the Big Band, of the Columbia
river from Beevermeuth, a distance ef
one hundred and nlntky miles. He wu
accompanied by a number of wall known
river msn from both Revelstoke and
Ths object of ths trip st this time
was to ascertain the feasibility of river
navigation through the Big Bend country north of Death rapids and Klm-
buket lake and to secure first hand information for use ln preparing esti-.
mates on the cost of clearing ths river
The work of Inspecting the river between Revelstoke ark) the international
boundary hu been placed In the hands of
Captain Armstrong of Golden, a man
who hu had a wide experience in river
navigation snd who knows every point
of the game. At the recent Panama
canal convention held in Calgary it wu
decided thst the Columbia river offered
the only solution to the question of reasonable grain freight rates to ths
Pacific coast and It wu urged on ths
federal government to make what improvements were necessary to render
navigation for large river barges a
Compared with railroad traffic the
cost of moving grain by water is about
15 per cent, so that to get reasonable
rates on Canada's greatest crop from
the railroads operating between the
prairie provinces and the Pacific coaat
it Is not only advisable but necessary
that this work be rushed to completion.
A Coming Event
Anyone who remembers the Fire
Association's basket social last year,
and there are those who have reason to,
will greet with pleuure the announcement of another one. The young man
who feels that his life's bliss depends
on his eating out of a particular basket
may look forward to the event with
mingled emotions. The few tense
moments when his hope of heaven for
that evening is for sale to the hir*-! '���st
bidder are moments of pleasun. ��� E
excitement* and sometimes, If somebody gets wise, of severe strain on the
pocket book. . But they say its worth
The date fixed is November 16th'
The social will be followed by a dance
as it was last year.
The firemen are a live bunch. They
showed us the other night how few seconds they need after the alarm is sounded to have a stream of water playing on
the blaze. Bnt the Bocial and dance on
the*15th won't be any hurry-up affair.
And it won't feel anything like getting
the hose turned on you, unless you happen to get the wrong basket. Then
you may feel chilly.
A Satisfied Customer
Is a store's greatest asset. He who is satisfied
tells others, and thus is a walking advertisement
of an establishment's merit. On the other hand,
he who is dissatisfied not only^ changes his trading
places but attempts to influence others to do likewise.
A retail store that has a favorable location, that has a
reputation of reliability because of its honest and
regular advertising, that has its stock arranged in
an effective manner, and that renders satisfactory
service to its customers, will  enjoy  its  share  of
the business in any community. I'HK  i:H.\SF.  TRIBUNE

The game of politics is not to-day what it was yrsterduy. The
rules are ohanging, Ami woe to the politician who thinks ho can win
by breaking the rules. ��'
Time was, and not so long ago, when parties kept in power by
means of tlie machine, Rewards and punishments did the buslness.ulded
by a tactfully managed system of threats and promises. Ai party
went down Uf defeat not so r.iucli because its policies had become unpopular as because its organization had weakened.
Tlie methods of those good old days, good tor the grafter, are fust
going the way of all flesh. In order to keep its job a government must
now make the people believe that it is giving them a better administration than they are likely to get us the result of any change thev
might make.
Reduced to its lowest terms, the individual voter, the change works
out about like this. Instead of letting the party bosses dictate everything, the voter is asking to have his say iu directing tlie Workings of
his party organization. Formerly he had uo choosing to do in public
affairs except tlie choosing between two parties, wh ch was often only a
choice between two evils. South of the boundary this state of affairs is
being remedied by the introduction of direct primaries, mid on litis
side of the line by a glowing responsiveness of public men le Ihe pressure of public sentiment and a less perfect trust in the persuasiveness
of the war chest.
Francis Bacon said that gardening is the purest of human pleas,
ures. No one ever said that about (landing, but here goes. Dancing
is tin- purest of luittla'u pleasures-���for some people.
Dancing is at its best after two in the morning, And this must
bit nt a big ball. It is then that you get a sifted company. Thosi
,who didn't much want to come, the tired ones, those who huve lost Ihe
spirit of youth, have all gone home. Those who stay are the' ones who
dance for the pure love of rhythmic movement. The spirit of music
and of rheaBure takes possession. EYpfn the dancers tjiere begins to
come a subdued hum, a \vprdles6 vocal ;it*mmpaiiiine|it. that chord,
with the notes of the orcfiesi ra.
There is less tall; than then* was earlier in the evening, lull the
step is lighter to keep time to .the quickening music. Eyes have grown
bright��� and complexions better -if they wen* genuine. Even the
features have grown more refiiieil.    Fair nnd tree, lift* touches ils best.
No wonder that dancing has always been the supivinc expression
of delight,

At the meeting of the Board of Trade. It was moved that George
Chase be one of the delegates to the Board of Trade convention at
Vernon. "Do you think you could attend. Mr. ChtiBe?" asked the chairman. Oeorge looked doubtful. "You would meet the leading men
of the province there," the chairman went on persuasivly, "and get in
touch with some of the newest ideas of our keenest minds. It is an
opportunity not to be missed."
George still looked undecided. "Does anyone happen to know
what sort of pool players they are down there?" he asked.

Ou Wednesday evening Tommy Gordon and Uncle Hilly Linctot
took a walk to Shuswap. Not for anything in particular, 'lomjny
diplomatically expressed his admiration of a fifty-three pound squash,
tin* kind thatgroJV. in Shuswap, The owner tumbled to what he meant
and told him lie might have ii if he could carry it home. Now it is
two whole miles from Shuswap to Chase and therefore Tommy only
continued to look wistful.
lint help was not far off. The chef of   the "Mulligan   Club," was J
standing by.    Filled with sympathy, or hope of gain, or just   because i
lie is n dead game sport, he bet a that he could carry the squash
to Cliase without setting it down or changing it from   one  shoulder lo
the other.
The way lie started off it looked like easy money for him. But
squashes have an inconvenient habit of putting on flesh when they are
Uo be carried for a couple of miles. At the end of the first mile th.
porter was growing less springy of step, and at the miki aud a half post
i life got to be so much of ll burden Suit lie laid it down. [Not life but
the squash.]
Tlie ten dollarsWaSlost but lhat was nothing to Tommy, tlie squash
, wife now only half a mile from home, By numerous relays the distance wns covered.    A slop was made at the 0. P. R. station  to   weigh
ithe'big vegetable to see if it really was as heavy as it felt.' Encouraged to rind that it still weighed only ,>J pounds Tommy started
ou the homestretch and made the grade.
-fust us wi* go to press Mr. Gordon is iu receipt of a Wire, asking
him not to cut the squash as ihe Frenchman wants to have another try
Ht currying it back to Shuswap. �� Aren't yon glad you're not a sport?
It is at hist beginning to dawn upon the molded men of British
Columbia that coiitiiiui d and solid progress cannot be based upon promotion of new townsites. Towns have a legitimate place in a country only
us industrial anil distributing centres. Tin* country itselt, Out aide of
the towns, must produce something to la* distributed, and must maintain a prosperous producing population as a market for the manufactures of the towns.
British Columbia is even now in an unhealthy condition since more
than half of its population is concentrated in cities and towns. A city
or town may support a considerable population merely by handling and
transshipping the produce of distant districts, but a province must have
a contented rural population.      Hope News,
France is foremost among the nations in aviation, and intends to
remain so. The recent review of seventy-two French army flying-
muchines brought together for the first tiiuea complete aruiada of the
air, every craft of which is filled and maimed for service iu war. It is
grimly significant that, after the review, when the minister of war had
addressed the airmen, twenty aeroplanes rose in a flock, and Hew away
to stations on the Gorman frontier.��� Youth's Companion,
Our heaven must bit within ourselves,
Our home mid heuveil thu work of faith.

Downward to death.
So faith shall build the boundary wall,
And hope shall plant the secret bower,

With gem and flower.
While overall a dome must spread,
And love shall be that dome above;
And deep foundations must he laid,
And these are love.
The Salmon Ann farmers are turning down no opportunity of
publicly demonstrating the fact that they know how to farm and have
a good place to do it in. First it was at their own fair, then at the
provincial exhibition in New Westminster, and now thoy are carrying
off the prizes at the biggest show of them all, the Dry Farming Exposition at Leth bridge.
Arizona goes a step farther than other states in the matter of supplying school children with text-books at public expense. Elsewhere
the books remain the property of the state, and after they have been
used by one pupil, are passed on to another. A new law in Arizona
provides that the books shall become the permanent property of the
pupils who fi/st receive them. The added expense will be justified, it
is thought, by greater freedom from contagious diseases, which in spite
of fumigation, are often transmitted by old school-books.���Youth s
The effort of the Board of Trade to secure an extension of telephone lines along the lake will meet with general approval. While the
movement is on foot the residents of Celista and Seymour Arm should
lift up their voices for a line along the north shore of the lake. It
would not be long before such a line would pay a profit. And the people
of these two rising communities are in bitter need of telephone connection with the outside world.

The journey begun In a Nova Scotian
hamlet is finished in a great city of the
south. Here the northern woman finds
her self-assertivenesa and the push-and-
elbow instincts acquired in Boston's
aubways rebuked by the southerner's
invariable politeness. She enter* a
street car belligerently, prepared If ahe
must stand to let the men know how
she feels about it. But instantly three
gentlemen have arisen and are proffering their seats. Go where she will ahe
finds this charming deference. If ahe
accosts a policeman with a curt question he uncover* hi* head and makes
answer as to a queen. In social converse the southern gentleman delicately
conveys the impression that his plain
faced vis-a-vis ia the desire of his eyes,
and he would make love if only he felt
worthy and dared.
The men's attitude produces ita natural effect upon tb. women of the
south. They cannot all have classic
features but they carry with them a
sense of charm resulting, no doubt,
from their quiet consciousness of their
queenly rights. These have always
been accorded them and they accept
them as their due, with a right stately
gTaciousness. "The bias of their nat-
uresis not to thought but to sympathy.
They can't always spell correctly but
neither can their lords. In the bills
posted throughout the city such spelling
may be seen as would Set a northern
schoolma'am's teeth on edge. But
what is dictionary knowledge* compared
with elemental charm? What if they
could not pass a test in English and
American literature? Woman is power
and poetry In herself. She of the southland feels this and carries herself with
a proud serenity.
Nevertheless the northern woman
need not feel that she coi-pares unfavorably with the southerner. For my part,
I should hate to put so much powder on
my face as now I daily Bee, A little I
might concede to warm, moist, day*,
and to shininess of nose, but as for Ailing up every wrinkle,���no, let tbe lines
that time ha* graved remain In all
their noblenesa. Neither should I like
to be ao dependent on the mere man.
This independence may have cost una
trick or two of charm, yet we are glad
to know if necessary we can go down
town alone in the evening without endangering our safety or our reputation.
I rejoice that we are not above prying
into the state of our back yards or
cleaning them with our own hand*.
Our southern sitter sits on the piaita and
watches her fair children at play while
from near-by rottenness a deadly miasma is rising to poison their young lives.
The Canadian woman in her own
home has in her being the elements of
the ideal, nor see I any reason why she
should not be the flower of her sex. I
like to think she is. In her own country she will not lose her individuality in
the rush and scramble of crowded cities.
She seeks what the schools can give
her, but she is not ashamed to sew and
cook. Her instincts are normal and
her desire is to her husband. She is a
lover of home and family ties, and she
proves her .worthiness of these good
gifts by the supreme test���the ability to
do without them. Nature is bountiful
to her. She may dally posess the
knowledge that the steadfastness of the
mountains of her native land, the
breadth of ita meadows, and the eternity of its waterfalls are reflected in her
spirit. Justitia
