Chase, B. C, Fridav. September 6. 191^
*S2.00 _?er Year
The Member For  South  Shropshire, With   His  Son,   Is Enjoying  a
Vacation in British Columbia, Also Looking Into the Working
of the Tariff System In Canada,
Thomas W. Wilby  Starts  on
Epoch Making Trip From
Altantic to Pacific.
His j Chase Lodge Will Celebrate Its First
Anniversary on Hallowe'en
with A Big Ball.
Chase is this weok being favored
with �� visit from n distinguished
member of the British House of
Commons. Mr. Rowland Hunt, who
represents one of the Shropshire
constituencies in tlie "mother of
parliaments," and his sou Mr. Urion
Hunt, ure making a tour of
this greatest of the overseas dominions. Tliey will spend several days
in Chase and vicinity elijoying the
unrivalled opportunities for hunting and lishing which the English
country gentleman knows so well
how to appreciate. While bere
they are guests at the Hotel Underwood.
During his sojourn in this country Mr. Hunt is not devoting all
his time to amusement but is keeping un eye on the working of pro
tection in Canada. Being a firm
believer in Fiscal Reform he think*
thnt the colonies and the uiothi
country could be brought closer
together by u readjustment of tariffs, and has given considerable
time to promoting the principles
laid down by Joseph Chamberlain,
lie believes that the ultimate outcome of labor troubles in England
will be a departure from the principles of free trade and the adoption
of a protective tariff, which would
keep trade within the Empire.
At present Mr. Hunt und his son
are at the Dam Camp for a few days
fishing. Tho weather man is doing
his best for them, aud there is no
doubt that the Adams Lake trout
will live up to their reputation for
being kind to strangers.
Gain of Exhibiting.
New Westminster.���Thst the winning of cash prizes, while of importance,
iB not the greatest gain to the exhibitor
of stock or produce at a fair such as the
Provincial Exhibition to take place here
on October 1st to 5th, is the statement of Mr. D. E. MacKenzie, manager
a*id secreta-y of the Fair, wh*> says the
chief item is the education which an
exhibitor is bound to get. With the
best men in the country judging the
different classes, an exhibitor finds out
just what constitutes a perfect specimen
and learns just whut should be tried for.
"To the layman a beet is a beet, and this
can be said of the average farmer,"
says Mr. MacKenzie. "Let the farmer
exhibit a beet, however, in competition
with perfect beets, and he will soon
learn that there is a big difference in
beetB, at least for exhibition purposes,
and what is best in an exhibition is generally best in the market also. Symmetrical lines and beauty may have a
littie something to do with the judges,
but they are guided in the main by
whether or not tho one will bring a higher price than a product not so pretty.
Harvest Home.
The "harvest home" service in the
Presbyterian Church on Sunday night
drew a capacity house. Offerings of
flowers, fruit and vegetables in profusion were tastefully arranged on the
platform around the pulpit. The
preacher looked at his congregation
through an opening between two tall
cornstalks that in spite of his generous
stature towered several feet above his
head. If the big pumpkins didn't exactly induce thoughts of heaven they
did the next best thing, they made you
think of home and mother and her pum-
kin pies.
An interesting feature of the service
was the singing. The choir, under the
leadership of Mr, Munger, is gutting
to be quite an effective organization. A
duet by Miss Stuart and Mr. Anderson
was well rendered anil received with
Free Text Books.
To prevent any misunderstanding on
the part of the parents as to what supplies the children attending public school
are required to buy for themselves, a
schedule has been compiled by the free
text book branch of ihe department of
The books supplied free are���All
readers, all arithmetics, new method
writing pads and writing books, copy
books No. 8 to 9 inclusive, drawing I to
4 inclusive, Universal Spelling, How to
be Healthy, Nature Study and Agriculture. First Steps in English, and Gam-
mel's History of Canada.
Geography and History of British
Columbia, Geography of the Dominion,
Goggin's English Grammar and English
History are prescribed but are not on
the free text book list. Older children
are requested to buy note books and scribblers and all needed painting material
and all drawing and lead pencils.
Pleasant Memories.
The following is an extract from a
letter received by Mrs. Rittman from
Kate Sullivan, of Waverly, Iowa. Miss
Sullivan spent a summer here after the
death of her uncle, Mike Sullivan, former owner of the Carlin Ranch :
"I have long waited to write you to
thank you for your kindness In sending
me the initial copy of the Chaue Tribune!
Your father brings me the paper as he
receives it and 1 cannot tell you how
much I enjoy reading its columns. I am
carried back to days of yore when 1
spent a happy summer, to me it all
seems like a dream. A few of the
names are familiar but the majority
are strange. The cartoons are fine���I
do enjoy them. No periodical reaches
our home that is read with more zeal.
I only wish my poor uncle eonld have
lived to see the change. He loved Shuswap and vicinity; we little dreamed
that in so few short years a town would
displace a little country store. 1 have
pebbles I picked up on your beach. I
cannot tell you how much 1 appreciated
Mr. Rittman's call. It was so kind of
him to bring me a breath of the haunts
1 loved. 1 did not overlook the fact
that you have some bachelors there
brave enough to use the columns of the
Tribune in search of a wife."
School Staff Complete.
On Wednesday the first division of
the public school opened. The new
principal is Mr. Frank Burling, who
comes from London, Eng.
Mr, Burling is a teacher of experience
and comes well recommended. Though
new to the British Columbia school system, as are many of the teachers who
each year take charge of some of the
best schools in the province, he is well
qualified to teach any subject on the
course. He has made a special study
of drawing and music, branches which
many of our teachers arc least qualified
to teach. -
The second division is again in the
hands of Miss McKinnell, who last year
proved herself a capable and diligent
With the hearty co-operation of parents and pupils the Chsse public school
should look forward to a successful
Thanksgiving Services.
On Sunday next, September 8th,

of the Holy Communion at 11 a.m., and
Children's Service at 3 p.m.

Halifax, N.S., August 28.-At thru)?;
o'clock yesterday afternoon Mr. ThomaS
Wilby started from the city hall on an
automobile trip which he plans to endon
the western coast of Vancouver Island
about six weeks hence, thereby demoU|
strating the practicability of the Canadian Highway. He is the official representative   of  the  Canadian   Highwa'j'
Chase Lodge No. 47, Knights of Pythias, has migrated from its former home
in the Chase opera house to warmer
winter quarters in the Black Dogulas.
The latter hall has been leased for a
year. The sidewalk recently built down
Chase Street makes it as easy of access
as any location in town.
For the past week, contractor Barnes

This, and the flag of the Automobile
Club of Canada, are the only decorations
which he sports.
For several months preparations have
been going on for this cross-Canada
journey.. Co-operating with the energetic pathfinder, the officers of the Canadian Highway Association have prepared
maps, plans, charts, etc., which will be
invaluable to Mr. Wilby. A chain of
pilots has also been provided across the
continent. Those in Eastern Canada,
as far as the great lakes, have been selected by different automobile clubs in
theBe districts, while west of this point
the men have been appointed by the
Canadian Highway Association. Inmost
cases the pilot is a member, frequently
an officer of the association, and it is his
intention to accompany Mr. Wilby for
at least one hundred miles on his journey, resigning his services as guide when
the district served by another officer is
There are, of course, great difficulties
to be met with on the journey. For
many weeks it seemed as if the trip
would have to be abandoned as there
seemed no possibility of getting beyos^/

boats plying on the inland sea, but a few-
days ago Mr. Wilby was advised that a
party which had been sent out to thoroughly investigate conditions in that
locality, had reported that a route which
appeared to be passable had at length
been located.
Before leaving Halifax for his eastern destination. Mr. Wilby was presented
with a number of letters to be delivered
en route, these beingfrom acting Mayor
Martin to representative western men.
One of these letters is to His Royal
Highness the Duke of Connaught, patron, and another to Mr. W. J. Kerr,
president, of the Canadian Highway
Valuable assistance is being given by
Victor Parker, editor ���of the Modern
Power Magazine, of Winnipeg, who has
volunteered to pilot Mr, Wilby for 100
miles outside of Winnipeg. Mayor
Fleming, of Brandon, has arranged for
a pilot from his town for a considerable
distance westward, where he will relinquish his task to the Regina pilot.
Members of the Medicine Hat Automobile Club are to take charge of Mr.
Wilby in Alberta and convoy him to the
British Columbia boundary, where he
will be met by Mr. Guy Lowenberg,
who will have charge of him as far as
Castlegar, where Mr. John' D. Anderson
another vice-president, will undertake
to pilot the car as far as Grand Forks,
from which point Mr. Wilby will have
the assistance of Mr. Jeff Davis. At
Princeton an experienced packer will be
waiting with horses which it is expected
will be necessary in crossing the two
divides on the Hope mountains. This
part of the trip, it is believed, will be
the most difficult of the whole undertaking, and, in the event of Mr. Wilby
negotiating this obstacle, he will be met
at the town of Hope by President W.
J. Kerr, who will escort him to Chilli-
wack and accross the Fraser Valley to
Westminster and Vancouver, stopping
at Westminster long enough ro entertain the pathfinder at a luncheon to be
given in his honor.
From Nanaimo to the western coast
of Vancouver Island no great difficulty
is to be encountered, the roads so far
as Sproat Lake being in excellent con-,
dition. An attempt may be made to
reach the coast at Long Beach, but if
this is not feasible, the journey will come
to an official end at Strathcona Park.
makes an ideal lodge room without in
any way impairing its value as a theatre.
Its excellent heating system was one of
the main considerations in its choice as
a meeting place for the K. P's.
Though less than a year old, Chase
Lodge has close upon fifty members.
For the past two months new members
have been admitted at almost every
meeting, and still they come.
A splendid staff of officers and live
membership make the lodge inf|agting
and its meetings something .to look forward to. There is undoubtedly a bright
and useful future before Chase Lodge,

Make The Canal Free.
Great Britain has acquired the Suez
Canal by purchase of the late Khedive
Ismail's shares, by occupation and control of Egypt, by the lives of her sailors and soldiers and the sacrifice of her
statesmen and proconsuls. Her title in
law is not as complete as is; ours to the
Panama Canal Zone; but virtually it is
Ivas good and in fact owes less to
' ittflltrary &Vc��V since the legitimate
chain has not been cut in Egypt, whereas the Republic of Panama, from whom
we derive our title, represents a Revolution against Columbia instigated from
Suppose Great Britain, with her commercial and political control of Suez,
had elected to treat the canal as a British waterway, as a domestic public
work, and to discriminate in favor of
her shins trading between different portions of her empire, brtween London
and Bombay, Liverpool and Hongkong,
Cardiff and Sidney, would she not have
earned by such policy the hostility of
all Continental Europe ? As surely as
effect follows cause, she would have
done so.
But British statesmanship was broad
enough to see that in the instance the
interest of the world included Britain's
own interest; that Suez was a world
route as much as the Straits of Gibraltar or the Straits of Dover; that discrimination in the Canal would be as
provocative of war as has been British
discrimination in the Dardanelles; that
by opening the Suez to the world on
equal terms British commerce waB itself fostered and guaranteed.
Leave aside all consideration of the
Hay-Pauncefote Treaty; indeed, act as
if there were no such Treaty nor any
Treaty, as if it was legally and morally
our privilege to deal with Panama as it
is ours to deal with theiMississippi; notwithstanding, it will pay the United
States to treat the (anal as a world
route, open to all ships, subject only to
such ^equitable and impartial tolls as
may he imposed to meet the fixed
charges, interest and maintenance.
For the great reason, if for no other,
that a selfish and exclusive administration of the Canal will invite the resentment of the world, not merely immediately, but continuously. Of Great
Britain, least perhaps, since she is resolved to remain on cordial terms with
us in any event, but of Germany and
Japan, of Russia and France.
True, our money, our labor, has constructed the Canal. But the Canal, by
virtue of its position, is as much a world
route as the Straits of Malacca, or of
Gibraltar,;which are commanded by British fortresses, but which cannot be
barred to the world's trade.
We made the point and carried it with
Canada that the Canadian waterways
along the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence
could not be treated as domestic waterways discriminating against our ships.
By that precedent are we not estopped
from treating with the Panama Canal
as in any sense a domestic waterway ?
And if we are not estopped by logic,
we should be estopped by Bense.   Dis-
Leaving Chase at 7 a.m., and following first a north-easterly course, your
motor boat, if it is a good one, will bring
you at noon to the wharf at Seymour
If the day is fine, and any other summer than the present one it would
almost surely be that, the journey means
five hours that are full of rare enjoyment.
After caslingoff from the government
wharf ar Chase, the firet four miles of
your course lies through the Little Shuswap Lake. Here you can watch the
C. P. R. trains wind their way along the
southern margin as they skirt the bases
of the hills that come clear to the water's edge. Every now and then there
will be a splash, most likely on the op-,
posite direction from that in which you
are looking, and if you turn your head
quickly enough you may catch a glimpse
of a four or five pound trout as he
breaks the surface and describes a curve
in the air. Yet if yon wish to make
your destination in time for lunch you
must not stop to cast a line.
At the upper end of the Little Shuswap
the speed of the boat slackens by half
as it enters the strong current of the
Little River. Its two mileB of swift
water must be stemmed before the craft
again gathers headway as you open out

is the new townsite of Sorrento, destined tu be the home of a prosperous
and happy village population.
Farther on you pass the broad entrance
of Blind Bay, already becoming noted
for its fruit exports.
About eight miles from the entrance
of the main lake the boat passes to the
left of Copper Island and the occupants
get a nearer view of the northern shore.
For several miles it bears the name of
Celista. In many of the houses on the
homesteads that line the waterside Is
heard the accent that tells the speaker

is locally famous for its Scotch dances and
its solid vote at election times.

miles in an easterly direction, and the

a most enjoyable 'iff ir for those who

who are financially able to entertain

Is expected ot us. Borne years ago a
wealthy American gentleman named
Tracy spent a month In Rome. Bis
wife and daughter. Henrietta, had always moved In the upper circles of
America, anil,  having friends iu the
Eternal City to Introduce them, they
soon found themselves In the swim
Henrietta Tracy was much sought
after by Italians, who would bave
beeti glad to marry a beautiful American with a fortune. Her ouly object
lo ncceptlng their attentions was a
natural desire to see the world In
Rome. One young man sbe fancied,
but be was supposed to be perfectly
Independent financially and did not
aeem Inclined to Join the throng of
her suitors.
But tlie indy was not sure that Indifference wus the cause of bis standing
aloof, though she did not know. There
are young men why nre either too
proud to euler Into a competition for
tho hand of a girl pursued by fortune
hunters or too sensitive to pay attention to such. But this young man, Lul-
gl Brandlnl, wns hot a pauper and no
sucb motive could he attributed to bim,
though bis estate was said to be Involved ln a law suit of many years'
standing. ������   -
Nevertheless Brandlnl showed Miss
Tracy every attention he could without Indicating that he wae likely to become a suitor. The lost time she saw
him at a social function was a bull given at the Qulrlnal palace, where he
was her partner more than once during the evening. He seemed gloomy,
and Miss Tracy could not help wondering If ber departure, which was to take
place the next day, had anything to do
with hla depression. Wben she was
leaving tbe palace the young man bid
her goodnight and goodby with a far*
away look ln his eye tbat boded some
Impending calamity.
That was the hist tbe Tracys saw of
Rome for some time. Prom there they
went to Berlin, thence to London and
finally sailed from England to America.
Two years passed. One day Miss
Tracy entered a restaurant In an American city with a party of friends for
luncheon. Wben they were seated a
waiter advanced with a napkin on bla
arm to serve them. Looking up at him
Miss Tracy met bis eye. The hot blood
rushed to hla cheeks and an expression
of mingled pain and mortification
���bowed Itself ln every feature of bla
face. The man recognised her as she
recognised him. He was Lulgl Brandlnl.
He turned and went away, and she
���aw htm no more. Presently another
waiter came and took the party's orders. It ls needless to say that the
luncheon had been spoiled for Miss
Tracy. The face of one sbe had laat
met as a guest In the Qulrlnal palace
ln Rome changed to a waiter In an
American restaurant waa appalling.
Being Ignorant of wbat had caused
this downward course in tbe social
scale on the part of Brandlnl. ahe

residence and wbo had recently come
to America for a visit In reply she

For awhile thew wild rumors went
from month to mouth: then the poor
man was forgotten by the social world
aa completely as If an ocean had closed
over him.
Miss Tracy read the Information Imparted, and ber sympathies went out
all the more to ber former acquaintance, especially at learning that hla
fall waa not attended with disgrace.
It waa bard for ber to understand that
helplessness under which gentlemen
of Europe who were not born to work
experience when they are thrown out
upon tbe world It does not exist-
certainly not to so great an extent���ln
What could she do for Brandlnl?
Nothing. The pride which had caused
him to Dee from such help as be might
have received from hla friends would
prevent his accepting assistance from
a woman be bad known ln that exclusive circle. One of tbe unseen abysses that beset tbe way of tbose >*ho
tread roseate paths had been suddenly exposed to her vision.
The only effort Miss Tracy felt herself tn a position lo make in Brandlnl's
behalf was to Inform her father of ber
meeting wilh Hie Italian with a view
to learning If anything could be done
for him. Mr Tracy was disposed to
help oue who hail contributed to bis
and his daughter's pleasure in a foreign land. He went lo the restaurant
where Henrietta hud seen Brandlnl,
described him to tbe proprietor nod
wus told thnt a man answering that
description had left his service on the
dny Miss Tracy had met Brandlnl
The proprietor did not know where
he had gone. That ended tbe matter
for the time being and possibly forever.
But Fnte. who delights In arranging
nil sorts of complications for us, wus
working the mutter ln his own peculiur
fashion. Many a man's career has
been determined by some slight Incident such as missing a train, falling
into a river or runt Ing up against some
one turulng a corner, ln this ense tbe

after Miss Tracy's meeting with Brandlnl In a restaurant she advertised for

For a moment she hesitated whether
to speak lo him as a former friend or

The editor line the Bnme ilesiro as the preacher to persuade people to hia way of thinking and to induce them to act accordingly. The
themes he discusses are sometimes the same nnd often quite ns serious
as those of the preacher. But the editor is much more modest in his
demands for time. This is undoubtedly one reason why he obtains a
larger audience. If the preacher litis a half hour at his disposal, and
talks at the rate of 150 words a minute, an ordinary speed, he delivers i
about 4,500 words. Now, the editor of the New York World says his
say on any subject, however important, in 280 words on the average
The editor of the New York Times is more long winded; lie runs to
about 350 words. But these are dailies, you say. Well, we turn to the
Saturday Evening Post nnd find that the average length of the editorials is about 270 words. And some four or five million people read
them or have the opportunity of reading them. Since one '.vails at
a rate about twice as fast as tbe delivery of a public speaker, this means
that the preacher, although lie may be limited to half hour, still claims
the attention of his congregation for a period thirty times as long as.
that the editor askB of his readers. The editor of a yellow journal
whose salary exceeds that of a hundred ministers, manages to express
his opinion with sufficient force with less than a tenth the number of
words than the average sermon, and shorter words, too. Dr. Parkhnrst

A few years ago an Amerirati engineer put up an immense concrete building on the island of Jamaica in record time. In explaining
his methods of increasing the efficiency of the natives, he told how a
wire got loose on n wheelbarrow and rubbed against the spokes of the
wheel. The native chauffeur noticed the clickety-clack, and with unusual intelligence observed that the faster he ran the better was the
music, so he kept up a lively pace. After investigating the cause for
the unusual speed of this particular native, the engineer caused nil the
wheelbarrows on the job to be fitted with a "clickety" giving the result
first noted above.���The Independent.

Beads Blaine's family doctor, aud be
had In a moment of desperation, engendered by Bemls Blaine's conlrari
ness to respond to bis treatment, called
ln Dr. Bolster in consultation upuu the
case. Dr. Bolster bad remained ever
since, nnd now It was a dally custom
fin* tbe rival physicians to go to the
sickroom In company and wrangle over
the prostrate and pain racked form or
Bemls Blaine
"If he is uo better tomorrow we may
operate." whls|iered Dr. Bolster to Miss

up and down. "I've iilwjiys promised

"1 shall perforin the operation my

chin whiskers wagged aggressively.
"Never! Bemls Is my patient, and
If anybody operates I shall I" Little
Dr Pepper drew himself up to bla full
est height and glared at bis burly opponent.
"Gentlemen," cried  Miss  Folk timidly,  "shall  I  continue  to give the
spirits of niter to reduce the fever?"
"Yes." chipped Dr. Pepper quickly.
"No," vetoed Dr. BolBter.
Mlsa Folk looked appeallngly from
one to another.   Teurs gathered behind
her thick lashes.   "Something must be
done." sbe whispered, with a soh In

The doctors confronted eacb other in

"Nonsense.   Feed bim up."   Dr. Pep-
per waB close at hand.
"Atlantic City for bim." ordered Dr.
"llubblsh! No place Ilk* tbe Adlron
"Oh. doctors!" cried Miss Folk from
the upper hall, and by tbe nurse's tone
the two doctors knew that something
had happened to tbelr patient
"I'll bet he's gona. 1 predicted It,"
puffed Dr. Bolster.

"Ue cannot bave gone far." remarked Dr. Bolster as be climbed Into bla

worried and anxious. She bad taken
great Interest In tbe case of Bemls
Blaine aud a strong regard bad sprung
up between the sick man and the pretty nurse
"Suppose be should never come back.
Suppose something bas happened to
bim!" groaned Nurse Folk as she made
sn examination of the room and bouse
and discovered that ber patient had
escaped with his warmest dressing
gown, a golf cap and a pair of knitted
bedroom slippers
While consternation reigned ln tho
Blaine household, where the mother
nnd Bisters of the absent Bemls ran
distractedly to and fro and the nurse
waited impatiently for tbe return of
the doctors, those two rivals were racing each other down tbe shore road
with apparently Ilttle beed to tbe disappearance of their best paying patient,
"If you'll stop zigzagging tn front of
mo 1 can pass you easily!" roared Dr.
Pepper to tbe physician ln front.
"I'm willing to give your old mouse
trap a fair chance!" bellowed Dr. Bolster, turning bis machine sharply to
tbe rlgbt-a grave mistake, wbicb he
discovered too late
Dr. Pepper turned bis machine to
the right. There waa a sickening
crash, and then the moon witnessed
two angry doctors glaring at each
other from the wreckage of two machines.
The first thought tbnt leaped to ths
mind of each was the repair bill for
bis machine, the second thought was
how to pay It. nnd the third, a comforting one. waa tbe reflection that Bemls
Blaine wns n pntient whose bill might
be stretched Indefinitely.
"Hurt?" asked Dr. Pepper reluctantly.
"No ?ou?" Dr Bolster was equally loath to spend time or sympathy
upon bla colleague
"No If you'll excuse me I'll hurry
on.   1 bave a patient beyond."
"So have 1." said Dr. Bolster quickly, falling Into step beside his rival.
"I've got to look around for Bemls
Blaine, you know." protested Dr. Pepper. "He's my patient, and be has
escaped from bis bed In tbe delirium
of fever."
"Delirium tremens!" snorted Dr. Bolster. .    ,      ,

Dr. Bolster laughed wildly. "Why,

For answer In- Pepper beckoned hts
rival toward a dimly lighted window.

laundry, and part of this laundry was
devoted to the savory preparat*.*-! and
serving nf chop suey and other oelecta-
ble Chinese dishes. The collco curtain was pushed aside, and within tbe
dimly lighted Interior of tbe restaurant
a large man was seated, eating almost
ravenously of a large plate of chop
suey. The man wore a red dressing
gown, n golf enp, n pair of knitted bed
slippers and sadly needed a shave.
Watching him enjoy tbis meal were
several people.
The rival doctors pressed their
noseB against tho flyspecked pane of
glass. There were Bemls Blaine's mother and two sisters and tbe pretty
nurse, tbe shoemaker from tbe corner
and the village constable.
Just tben Bemls Blaine pushed back
his cbalr. paid bis bill and padded toward the door ln his knitted slippers.
"You're a sick man!" yelped Dr Pepper, leaping at his late patient.
"Man, you've risked yonr life!" cried
Dr Bolster as be clutched Blaine's
band. He was thinking about bin broken machine.
"Risked it and won it," retorted Bemls Blaine good naturedly. "It belongs to me, and Nurse Folk bere has
promised to look nut for me tbe rest
of my days Ob, yes, I'm quite well,
tbank you. doctors! If you hadn't disagreed and gone off I'd be dosing still.
As It Is I feel fine a* silk. Pll send

As tbe two doctors walked down the
street toward tbelr respective homes

machine and of the big bill there
would be to pay. Somehow each one
felt tbat Bemls Blaine had overreach

It is located on the main
line of the Canadian Pacific
Railroad at the foot of the
Shuswap Lake at its outlet into
the South Thompson River.
It is the outfitting point for
the Adams Lake and Turn Turn
Lake country where Caribou
and Bear are to be found in
It is situated in the heart of
one of the best agricultural
districts in British Columbia, yet
It affords greater opportunities
for the fisherman and hunter
than any point along the line of
the C.P.R.
The bathing beaches here
are admittedly the best to be
found in the interior. The water
is warm and clear; the bottom
is sandy with a gentle slope
to deep water.
Two of the most beautiful
waterfalls in the west may be
reached in ten minutes walk
from the Chase station. There
are many more waterfalls along
the streams flowing into the
Adams and Shuswap Lakes.
The Adams River Lumber
Company, located at Chase, employs upwards of 500 men in
the mill and in the woods. A
second large mill is soon to be
erected which will likely more
than double the present pav roll.
