Adams   River  Lumber  Company's
Mill Taking the Biggest
-   Cut in its History.
"We have enough logs to keep our
mill running at the present rate until
Christmas, and I guess we don't want
to run any later than that."
This was General Manager Sawyer's
answer to a representative of the Tribune
recently when aaked how the supply of
logs waa holding out agalnat the continuous eating, eating, night and day,
of the saws in the company's big
The demand on the prairies for the
product of the Chase mill has been
greater this summer than ever before.
Their efficient sales department has not
been slow to take advantage of the
opportunity which has been so freely
presented by the rapid influx of settlers into the fertile plains to the east of
us. A majority of these immigrants
come to the country with money enough
to their credit to go ahead at once
and put up substantial buildings on
their newly acquired farms.
The development that is going on all
through the middle Canadian west is
rapidly changing villages into towns and
towns into cities. Nor is there any indication of a slackening of the pace.
Rather does it tend to increase. The
dullest can spell out what this means to
the lumber industry in British Columbia.
For the present it has made the pay
roll the bir re'itin thehlstonvof thely >wn.
All arteries of trade feel the quickening
pulse of bigger and better business. The
merchants tell a story of an expanding
volume of Bales. There is no boom, no
wild spectulation, people are keeping
their heads, but everywhere you can
feel an atmosphere of quiet confidence in
the future of the town and district.
No doubt as the years go by we shall
become less dependent upon the lumber
industry. The time will come, for no
force, however stong, can stay the
wheels of progress, when every twenty
acres of arable land in the Shuswap Valley will support a family. Other com.
jnercial activities that depend upon
farming will springup and thrive. The
tides of trade and industry will then
begin to flow through many channels.
When that time comes, and as things
go in the west in these days it is not far
away, the citizens of Chase will not forget that it was the Adams River Lumber Company and their big saw mill
that set things going.
A Real Railway Minister.
Over on the other side of the Dominion or down east as theysayin Ontario,
where politics have become the exact
acience of office holding, the political
hangers on are having a hard time of
it. The trouble lies in the department
of Railway Minister Frank Cochrane,
who is Baid to de "raising cain" among
those who have for a lifetime looked
upon the Intercolonial Railway as a public enterprise to be run for the party in
power and as u secondary consideration
for the interests of all the people of
Canada. The new Railway Minister in
the Bordan Cabinet has a different notion about administering the Intercolonial. To him the government railway
is a business proposition, to be run for
the advantage of Canada. That means
receiving value for value for all money
spent and appropriations for use not for
the ornament of the party. And his
ways are bo disconcerting that the saying among the French Canadians is reported to be that "Monsieur Cochrane
is not a ministre politique, but a  buzz

If you mean business you can get the

Hon, Price Ellison Says Outlook For
Bountiful Harvest Was
Never Better
Hhn. Price Ellison, MiniBter of Fin-
nance and Agriculture, who has been in
the interior for some days on public and
private business, during the coarse of
which he paid a visit to his farm at Vernon, has returned to the city and spend
a busy day at his office attending to correspondence and to the matters which
were awaiting his official action.
Speaking of the general harvest outlook in the Okanagan for both fruit and
agricultural products, the minister stated that it would be impossible to speak
to optimistically of them. At present
the outlook for a bumper crop of all tree
fruits is of the brightest, and the growers are making plans to handle and
market a larger crop of all varieties
than they have yet done. There are
very many-men coming in and taking
up fruit raising throughout the Okan-
gan, and along the Thompson and other
valleys, and Mr. Ellison believes that as
a result of this year's crops there will
be a very materially increased demand
for lands. The ordinary farm crops are
also in fine shape.
Sales  Mapager  Brooks Returns
From Meeting of Lumbermen's Association,
E.E.Brooks returned on Monday from
Calgary, where he has been representing
the Adams River Lumber Co. at a meeting of the Mountain Lumbermen's Association.
Mr. Brooks remarked upon the very
promising outlook for a record yield of
grain in our neighbor province. The
growth of straw is particularly strong
There is only one anxiety felt by the
farmers on behalf of their crop.. There
is danger lest the abundant rains delay*
the ripening and expose the grain to
early frosts.
The fulfilment of. the present bright
prospects will'mean a year of unexampled prosperity for the prairie provinces.
E. G. Warren, manager of the B. C.
Copper Co, died in the hospital at Greenwood last week as the result of an automobile accident. The deceased, who
was 38 years of age, was a Past Master of the Masons, and was given a
Masonic funeral.

Dredge Resumes Work.
Captain Joe Johnston has once more
emerged from hiB retreat on that ranch
of his up among the tall uncut, and is
in.his old familliar place on the bridge
of the governmentdredge Pelican. Seamanship is Joe's vocation, but between
times he devotes his attention to agricultural pursuits.
After reducing himself to a skeleton
in a hand to hand tussle with the big fir
and cedar Btumps he returns to his quiet
life on the river. There he basks in the
light of Uncle Bob's sunny smile and
relieves the anxiety of his friends as he
fills up one of Vic's fancy cooking and
again gets so he can make a shadow.
The Pelican will continue through the
fall the work of deepening .the South
Thompson River. The object is to have
a channel three feet deep at low water
from Chase to Kamloops.
From TI       ibune of July 26, 111'..-.
Those little fish residing up the creek
dearly love to come to Chase. About
five hundred of them arrived in town
last Sunday afternoon. They were
strangerB, so we took them in���those of
us who could get any.
On Sunday morning a small regiment
of Chase citizens in various small detachments set out for a day's outing along
the shady banks of Chase creek. They
had such fine sport that they never
knew it rained.
The roll of those who went included
Mr. and Mrs. Blaisdell, Mr. and Mrs.
Ferguson, and Messrs. Gould, Toffee,
Willson, Taylor and Leadstone.
The feature of the day wSb Mrs. Ferguson fishing from a buggy while driving
along the bank of the creek. In this
way she caught about thirty trout.
The list of fish caught reads like an
account of the first ballot in a political
convention.   Here it is:

Complete Survey and Larger Grant
Asked for Shuswap
After some delay and considerable
discussion the citizens of Chaae have
decided on the manner in which they
wish the Government appropriation for*
Chase streets spent, and Provincial
Government Engineer Forde haa approved of their recommendations and
has given Road Supt. White instructions
to proceed with the work immediately.
Shuswap Avenue will be properly graded and gravelled from the hotel to the
station, the C, P. R. gate being removed
and the street being run straight through
and the turnstiles on the sidewalk being
moved to where the new railway fence
crosses it.
This street will also be opened up
where it crosses the flat between the
hospital and the railway track east of
town, and a connection made from it to
the present road leading to the wharf,
which latter road will be put in good
condition for use as a temporary connection between the wharf and the
town. ,
The balance of the appropriation will
be expended in the construction of necessary sidewalks.
The Tribune considers that the citizena
have made a wise recommendation for
this year's work, but trusts that the
project of eventually having Shuswap
Avenue graded straight through from
the station to the syharf will not_bc loct__
sight of and would impress on everyone
the necessity of keeping this before our
member, Mr. J. P. Shaw, M.P.P., so
that he may secure the placing of the
necessary amount for the work in the
estimates for the coming year.
The Ladies' Aid Social
The Ladies' Aid had the weather
made to order this time for their Ice
cream social. Louis Bean, nothing if
not a ladies man, closed his popular parlor for the evening, and that also helped
some. The Japanese lanterns hung
about the trees on Mrs. Loadstone's
lawn made a very pretty effect. The
ice cream was just right, the cake waa
the kind that mother used to make, and
everybody went home satisfied.

The new four story tourist hotel that has just been completed.for Dick Underwood will be open to the public in time
for the beginning of the hunting season in September. The
building contains three hundred rooms and covers a city
block. The roof is to serve as a landing stage where air-
shipB will be docked. During the hunting season a regular
service of these craft will be run between this point and Turn
Turn Lake, under the supervision of Aviator Laurie Taylor.
The Tribune has received word of an important transfer
of mining property. The Black Douglas gold mine at Scotch
Creek has been purchased by a syndicate of Scotch and Irish
capitalists. The secrecy that has always enveloped the
working of this claim hangs over the present deal. Our reporter has, however, pried into the mystery, using a bottle
of Hudson Bay rum as a lever. We are prepared to state
authoritatively that the price paid was half a million dollars.
.     .he Opera House.
���Mv. 1 . ikeman, proprietor of the Maple
Leaf and 'lata Theatres, Kamloops, has
been putting on a show in the Opera
House each Friday night for the past
few we__iS)'*;8_ shows three nights each
week b** K>mloops and picks out the
best tifi^ffBin the three programmes for
his night in Chase.
Two weeks ago he gave a dance after
the show, which was bo well attended
and so much enjoyed that he has decided
to repeat the dose this evening.
The programme for this week has
some specially attractive features. It
is as follows: Lady Audley's Secret-
Suffrage and the Man���Rag Picker's
Dog���Ocean, Thou Mighty Monster���
A Servian GipBy's Marriage���A Well

At some time in the near future the
citizens of Chase* will hold publie meeting to discuss matters of local interest
The meeting will be addressed by J. P.

An Abbreviated Trip.
On Wednesday morning two boats carrying sixteen passnegers started for
Kami* s to attend the regatta. The
one belonging to H. Mclean balked when
opposite Shuswap, and it was found
that the shoe protecting the propeller
was broken: Thus ended the excursion
so far as that boat was concerned.
The party in R. P. Bradley's boat
then decided that they didn't want to
go to the regatta either. They took the
derilict in tow and made the return trip
at their leisure, while some of the shipwrecked came back by the overland
The Band Concert.
The next Sunday evening band concert will be in the afternoon. There ia
not enough daylight after 7 o'clock these
evenings to allow the boys t" do justice
to their extensive repertoire.
So don't forget that the concert on *
Sunday wilt be on the government wharf
from three to five o'clock.   It sounds
good either on    the   wharf or on the
water.   This will be the program :

They were twenty miles apart.    They had equal
advantage   of  location.      Back  in   the    nineties
they got away to an even start.   So far they were
alike.   But there was a difference.
One  had   a  live,  healthy   newspaper;   the  other
couldn't afford such extravagance.
And now behold the jesjjjts. Where the newspaper
lived business kept growing, the town kept growing,
and best of all its men kept growing.
They had to accept the challenge  that publicity
brought them, and play up, and so they have come
to be the big men of the district, who lead others
in doing big things.
And the other town.   There's no need to tell its
story.    Its   people   had   their   chance   and   they

Pomeranian female don that she said

cub attached to a rope that he is taking

Mr. Thomas Cunningham, the provincial inspector of fruit pests, has ten experts engaged in a campaign of orchard
inspection and cleansing in the Okanagan Valley.
In addition to this work, Dr. Bonequet,
recently from Pullman Agricultural
College, has been giving some lectures
to the farmers. A hundred farmers
form a double ring around a sick apple
tree, and the learned Doctor tells them
what is the matter with it and what
sort of medicine to give it.
The fruit growers are so eager to know
all about it that they drag the Doctor
from his hotel after dinner and make
him tell them some more until bedtime.
The Baden-Powell Girl Guides of Salmon Arm go to camp at Canoe on July
26th, remaining till Aug. lBt. Miss
Francis Moule, their captain, writes as
follows in the Observer:
' Summer campB for girls are yearly
becoming more popular and justly so.
Last summer there were thousands of
little people in children's camps, and
this year there will be tens of thousands.
Camp life helps a child to get out of a
Bummer what it ought to have���health
and happiness. Camp life recognizes
the child's right to adventure and joyful
co-operation. To live happily in a well-
conducted camp means that a girl learns
how to work with others���rowing a boat,
preparing a meal, playing all sorts of
team games, teaches her this."
It is strange how things work out in
this wicked world, Bays the Carman
Standard. To some it is all peaches and
cream, to others all thornes and thistles.
Take the case of Harry Millie and Premier Roblin for. example. They both
started business in the same old town,
in the same old way. It is not on record
that Harry is more clever than R. P.,
indeed it is doubtful if he could beat him
in a "hoss trade." But in a matter of
telephones there IS a difference. Harry
ran a telephone business in Carman and
made it pay. He went out to the Okanagan Valley and started a second telephone system and was a winner. He
recently sold out his telephone system,
and passed through Carman the other
day on his way to visit his early home
near the Lake of Killarney in Auld Ireland, with $75,000 in his jeans, while
Premier Roblin though only a couple of
years in the telephone business, is a
million dollars or so in the hole. And
there you are.

Not long since a gentleman whose interests are more or less tied
tip with the future of the country around Shuswap Lake, called our
attention to the need of the Shnswap country being advertised as a
whole. He is right. He has placed his finger on one of our mistakes.
We have been telling the public about Seymour Arm and Malakwa
and Salmon Arm and Sorrento antl Chase, at the same time leaving it
in blissful ignorance of the fact that they are all located in one and the
same charming lake district. Let your mind wander hick to the time
when you lived two or three thousand mileB from here and this country
was known to you only by its fame. Did you hear much about Armstrong or Vernon or Kelowna f But Okanagan ; twenty years ago that
name began to have a meaning to tbe reading public everywhere. It
was heard on both sides of the Atlantic. And the boosting of the
valley has made the towns.
But if we are going to talk to the big world about our little paradise we must have a convenient name to hundle it by, Shuswap Lake
District describes it all right, but tbe name is too hard to get your
tongue around. Shuswap Valley would sound better. A name that
runs smoothly off the tongue goes a long way toward making a place
well known. Who that once heard the name of, say, Kalamazoo ever
forgot it ?
Tht right name settled upon, the next thing is to use it every
chance we get. Let it stare men in the face when they look at our
letter heads, our envelope!, onr advertising. The towns should use
it in their publicity work.
A (nan rends one day about Malakwa In the Shuswap Valley where

one place I'm not going to miss, and that's the Shuswap Valley." And
once the Shuswap Lake gets its beautiful a*ms around him he won't
want to leave.   He'll never forget the sensation.
' Until the.district as a whole is steadily, and systematically advertised it will be slow in coming into its own,

Recent Verse
Serene, I fold my hands and wait,
Nor care for wind uor tide nor sen,
I rave no more 'gainst time nor fait,
For lo! my own shall come to me.
I stay my haste, I make delays,
For what avails this eager pace?
I stand amidst the eternal ways
And what is mine shall know my face.
Asleep, awake, by night or day,
The friends I seek are seeking me;
No wind can drive my bark astray
Nor change the tide of destiny.
The waters know their own, and draw
The brook that springs in yonder heights,
So flows the good with equal law
Unto the soul of pure delights.
The stars come nightly to the sky,
The tidal wave unto the sea;
Nor time, nor splice, nor deep, nor high,
Can keep my own away from me.
John Bohrocghs.
By Arthur Hobson Quinn.
There was murder in Carroll County and the sheriff had taken his man.
But through the hills and the valley the ominous rumor ran
That if ever the word was spoken that sent to jail their kin
The Aliens would rear a shambles where the court of law had been !
But still untouched by the terror the law had had its way;
Floyd Allen stood for sentence iu the peace of a quiet day.
Silent, ufettered, he stood there, his face the hue of stone,
And it seemed that his clan had left him to beat his fate alone.
Then ere a word was uttered tlje door swung open wide,
And the pride and strength of the mountain strode noisily inside.
Around the judge and the jury and the officers of the law
The circle slowly tightened, and Thornton Maasie saw
That he framed his own death sen tence,but he rose and- the dingy room
Took on the spell of splendor as he spoke the words of doom!
Then the guns roared ont their answer, and the judge fell en hie face
And the mnrky smoke of munJer1 spread through the tainted place.

As the sheriff of Carroll County
Foster, who made the fhn,

I, and each man held his breath
���trade in to his certain death!
Cruel were the odd* agalnst^m, but the odds were nought to him,
For his bullet found Floyd Agfen ere the sight of his eyes grew dim,
Then down with Massie^nd Foster, in the growing heap on the floor,
In his clutch the empty weapon that his hand should use no more,
He dreamed tbat be still protected the dead that round him lay,
Till the thirst for murder slackened and the Mountain rode away.

The Prince of Wales.
With few exceptions, the newspapers
of the world announced that on his eighteenth birthday the Prince of Wales
attained his "majority." As a matter
of fact no subject comes of age until he
is twenty-one, and'so long as the prince
remains a subject, though the first in the
empire, he is legally an infant, and that
for three years longer. Thus he cannot
take his seat in the House of Lords until
1915. Even then he will lack full liberty
to manage his own affairs, for not until
he has completed twenty-five years may
a king's son marry in opposition to his
father's wishes. Indeed, people made
fun of the Royal Marriage Act at the
time It was passed on account of the
anomaly it set up, by which a prince
could undertake the government of England at eighteen, but was not held wise
enough to choose his own consort until
seven years later, to which some answered that tt was much easier to rule
a kingdom than a wife. At any rate,
that is the law, since an English sovereign undoubtedly assumes the whole
authority,of his ofllce at eighteen.

Murder At Asheroft
What appears to have been a coldblooded murder was committed at Asheroft on Monday. In a C. N, R. camp
on' the north side of the Thompson
river a foreman named Mulligan made
a brutal attack on a laborer whom, for
no apparent reason, he had dismissed
on the proceeding day. He terribly
slashed the face of the uufortunate
man, who died from loss ot blood half
hour after.
The knife used by the foreman
weighed about ten poutds, the blade
being a foot and a half long. Had it
not struck the victim's jaw-bone the
head would have been severed from the
. The body wss taken over to Asheroft
to await the coroner's inquest, and the
prisoner was placed in the local jail.

listening for sound within. Then there
cam* a fumbling at th* bar and th*
door swung Inward.
"Bon lour, m'seurl" called Jean's
cheerful vote* an he stepped Inside.
"Is It possible yon are not up, with all
this dog barking and"-
HIs eyes had gone to the empty
bunt Despite bis cheerful greeting
Howland saw tbat the Frenchman's
face waa bares rd lind pale as he tamed quickly toward bim. Be observed no
fruitier than that, but flung bis whole
weight on tbe unprepared Croisset, and
together they crashed to the floor.
There was scarce a struggle and Jean
lay still. He was flat on bis back, his
arms pinioned to bis sides, and bringing bimself astride the Frenchman's
body so tbat eacb knee Imprisoned an
arm Howland coolly began looping
the bailees]) thongs that be bad snatched from rbe table as be sprang to the
door. Beblnd Howland's back Jean's
legs shot suddenly upward. Ia a quick
choking clutch of steel-like muscle they
gripped about his neck like powerful
arms, and tn another instant he was
twisted backward with a force that
sent bim half neck broken to the opposite wall. He staggered to bla feet,
dazed for a moment, and Jean Croisset
stood In the middle ot tbe floor, his
caribou skin coat I hrown off. bis bands
clinched, bis eyes darkening with a
dangerous tire. As quickly as it bad
come the are died away, and as be advanced slowly bis shoulders bunched
over, his wbite teeth gleaming ln a
smile. Howland smiled back and advanced to meet him. Tbere was no
humor, no friendliness, In' the smiles.
Both bad seen tbat flash of teeth and
deadly scintillation of eyes at other
times, and both knew what it meant
"I believe tbat I will kill you,
m'seur,"' said Jean softly. Tbere was
no excitement, no tremble of passion,
in his voice. "1 have been thinking
that I ought to kill yon. I bad almost
made up my mind to kill yon wben I
came back to this Malson de Mort
Rnuge. It ls tbe Justice of God that I
kill you!"
The two men circled like beasts In a
pit Howland in the attitude of a boxer, Jean with bis shoulders bent, his
arms slightly curved at bis side, tbe
toes of his moccaslned feet bearing his
weight. Suddenly be launched him
self at tbe other's throat
In a flash Howland stepped a ilttle
to one side and shot out a crushing
blow that caught Jean on the side of
tbe bead and sent him flat on his
bach. * Half stunned. Croisset came to
his feet It was the first time that he
had ever.come*lnto contort with science. He waB put-led. His bend
rang, and for a few moments he was
dizzy. He darted In again In his old,
quick, catlike way and received a
blow that dazed him. This time be
kept bis feet.
"I am sure now that I am going to
kill you. m'seur," he ssld as coolly as
Tbere was something terribly calm
and decisive ln bis voice. He was not
excited. He was not nfrnlcl. His fln
gers did not go near the weapons In
his belt, and slowly tbe smile faded
from Howland's lips as Jean circled
about him. He hnd never fought n
man of tbis kind: never bad he looked
on the appalling confidence that nas
In his antagonist's eyes. From ihi.xe
eyes rather than from the man he
found himself slowly retreating. They
followed bim. never taking themselves
front bis face In them the tire re
turned and grew deeper. The dull
red snots begun lo glow In Crnlsset's
cheeks, and he laughed softly when he
suddenly leaped In so that Howland
struck at hlm-and missed. He knew
what to expect now. And Howland
knew what to expect.

Howland dropped his arms, bis fingers relsxed, and be forced bla breath
between bis lips as if be were on tn*

a few tricks tu bis science, and these

"I am going to "break your neck."

seconds later be opened his eyes to
find his bands bound behind his back
and Howland standing at his feet.
"Mon Dleu. but that was a good
one!" he gasped after be bad taken a
long breath or two. "Will you teach
It to me, m'seur?"
"Get up!" commanded Howland. "I
bave no time to waste, Croisset". He
caught the Frenchman by tbe shoulders and helped hlra to a chair near
the table. Then he took possession
of the other's weapons, Including tlie
revolver which Jean bad taken from
bim, and began tp dress. He'spoil*
no word until be was done.
"Do you understand whnt Is going to

eyes blazing hotly "Do yon under-

Wekusko I'll have twenty nien hack on

A gray pallor spread Itself over Jean's
thin face.
"Tbe great God, m'seur, you cannot

"Cannot!" Howland's Angers dug

jean remained silent A few minute*
later Howland brought the caribou
steak, a dish or flour cakes and a big
pot of coffee to tho table. Then he
went behind Jean and untied Ida hands.
When he sat down at bis own side of
the table he cocked hla revolver and
placed it beside his tin plats, Jean
grimaced and shrugged his shoulders.
"It means business," said bla captor
warnlngly. "If at any time 1 think you

Jean sarcastically.

Suddenly he picked up the revolver.
"Yon never saw me shoot did you?
Bee that cup over there?" He pointed
to a small tin pack cup hanging to a
nail on the wall u dozen paces from

drove bullets through tt and smiled
across at Croisset.
"1 am going to give you tbe use of

be said.
"Mon Dleu, it Is safe!" granted Jean.
"1 give yon my word that 1 frill bo

Tbe sun was up when Croisset led
the way outside. His dogs and sledge
were a hundred yards from the building, and Howland's first move was to
take possession of t be' Frenchman's rifle and eject tbe cartridges while Jean
tossed chunks of caribou fiesb to the
buskles. When tbey were ready to
start .lean turned slowly nnd half
reached out a mlttened hand to tbe engineer.
"M'seur," be said softly, "I cannot

"There will at least be a little tun
