Tlie Caribou .Brotherhood was
organized at Ashcroft, B. C, on

p'ioserve and perpetuate tho history, of tbe Cariboo District, as

sufficiently advanced stage, to
appoint lecturers whose duty it
will be to visit the different subordinate lodges and deliver illustrated lectures, which will prove
intensely interesting on account
nt the unlimited amount of material in existence which can be
collected for the purpose.
Mr. Jas. A. Teit, nf Spences

numerous works on Ethnology,
and whose appointment as Field
Ethnologist to the Dominion
Government is about to be gazetted, has given his unqualified

Squadron A, Troop Four, of the
B. C. Horse, stationed at Chase,
held its first mounted parade
Sunday. Lieutenant Cunningham Morris, in command of the
troop, was here from Kamloops
and directed the maneuvers. A
very creditable showing was made
considering the fact that most of
the mounts are new and the ranks
of the squadron are (Hied with recruits.
Commander Morris was enthusiastic in his praise of the local troop. He says the boys are
all keen, active, willing fellows
and are sure to devel6p into fine
form for future encampments,
The various military detachments of this district will go info camp at Vernon on May 27.
Lieutenant Morris predicts that
Squadron A will give a good account of ilself by that time.
A great deal of the Credit for
Ihe exceptional showing being
made by the Chase detail of the
B. C. Horse is due lo the unceasing efforts of Sergeant Louis
Gumming. He is n thorough disciplinarian and has given his
time unstintingly to the cause.
He is popular with the men under his command and he is regarded with favor by his superior
Chase wants the military encampment next year. This is the
logical point for it to be held and
members of Chase troop are going to Vernon with a determination to bring it here if such a
thing is at all possible. No more
pleasant or convenient .place
could be suggested. Chassis located on the main line of the C. P.
H. at about the geographical center of tho military district. It is
on the banks of a beautiful lake
and river and it has a fine level
valley that may be utilized as a
parade and drill ground.
Newsy Notes From Pritchard.
Miss Belle Hawkes has resigned her position as stenographer
at tho Adams River Lumber Co.'s
offices and will return to her
home in Spokane.
W. P. Pritchard, of the River
Side Ranch was a Shuswap caller
Sunday last.
Edward Kilmer and Miss Ida
Christum called on their friends
in Chase Sunday.
Miss Taylor, the Martin Prairie
school teacher, spent the #eek at
her home in Kamloops.
A crew of men, in charge of
Harry Brett, began work on Ihe
government mads in this vicinity
during Ihe week.
Mrs.' Fred Carr who for some
time has been seriously ill, is, We
ai'e pleased to slate, at present
Everyone in this community is
at present busy planting potatoes
Judging from (he present out
look, there wilt be no famine in
Ihe Irish Loinon line this fall.
We hear plenty of talk when
in Chase relating to the Ladies'
Aid Society, but there is no such
an institution in Pritchard. The
ladies here are able to" lake care
of themselves.
It is understood that Mr. Clarence M. Whipple, a well known
rancher and member of the K. P's
will in all probability accept the
mail carrying from Ducks to
Bacff Valley, once a week.
Geo. M. Tibbs, who for the
past several months has been
studying modern homestead
methods, with Chas. Thompson
of Hooligan Bench, departed last
Sunday for the East, to lecture
on tho results of his..scientific investigations, to the embryo farmers of the Prairies.
We are willing to give the C.
P. R. anything it wants within
reason, in this section of the
country, and even mention its of-
llcials each night in our prayers.
If we can only have a telegraph
operator to decorate our depot,
or even a dog catcher to protect
the choice selections of beef we
import would help some.
"Grandpa" Lammers.
Mr. and Mrs. Walter Lammers
have received word from Stillwater, Minnesota slating that
Uncle George Lammers is now a
grandfather. A beautiful little
daughter has been born to Mr.
and Mrs. Roy Lammers of Spokane. When the news was (lashed over tho wire to the old home
town, Grandpa Lammers was allowed to buy for everybody in
Stillwater and half of Baylown.
Being a grandad is a business in
itself and now that Mr. Lammers
has gotten inlo it his friends
would not be surprised to hear of
his retirement from active logging.
Misses Gladys and Lois Underwood spent the week end with
their parents, returning lo their
school at Kamloops on Monday.
James Smart, late with the A.
R. L. Co., is a guest at the Shuswap Hotel,
Catholic Services.
Rev. Father Wagner of Kamloops held mass at Chase Catholic Church last Sunday and Monday mornings. He organized a
Sunday school with Miss Gertie
O'Sullivan of Shuswap as teacher. School will bo held every
Sunday hereafter at the church.
Father Wagner hopes to be able
lo visit Chase once a mo,Bth or
every five weeks. His diooese extends as far west as tbe Nicola
valley and his many dutios make
it impossible for him lo come to
Chase much oftener.
There was a large attendanco
at the services on Sunday and
Father Wagner made many
friends in Chase.
A. E. Sharpe, C. P. II. agent, is
taking a three weeks vacation, ,T.
Becker relieving him. Mr. Sbiipe
left on Thursday for Penliclou,
returning on Saturday, and leaving again on Sunday for the roust.'
i In connection with the prob
able ultimate electrification of a
portion of its line in the mountains, the Canadian Pacific Railways had acquired a water power
on the Adam's River, which flows
into the South Thompson River
near the west end of Shuswap
Lake. The title to the property
has bfcen vested in the name of J.
S. Dennis, land commissioner of
the company.
The Adams River flows out of
Adams Lake, and experts have reported that* it is capable of developing a hundred thousand h. p.
at two different points betwoen
the lake and its confluence with
the South Thompson. It is in a
heavily timbered country, where
extensive lumbering opeartions
are now being carried on.
The water powers in British
Columbia are acquiring a commercial value thoy did not possess
a few years ago. During a reconl
visit to the Okanagan Valley,, Sir
William Mackenzie, president of
the Canadian Northern railway
bought the Coteau water power,
and a charter for building an electric tram line through the fruit
growing belt on both sides of
Okanagan Lako. The Coteau
River is capable, it is said, of developing 7000 horse-power, a volume sufficient to operate the proposed tram line, which if built,
will prove n_ feeder to the steam
road which the company proposed lo build into the Okanagan
district from Kamloops.
Summer Retort FoMiMtttiet At
Chase Are Unsurpassed
to tho West
Two live wires in Chase last
week were Messrs. J. V. Mc-
Nnulty of Vaasouvcr and H. Latham Collins of Calgary. The one
represents tho Western Lumberman while the other boosts the
Calgary Herald. Both were hustling business. And both were apparently getting their share of it
in spite of the fact that the greatest newspaper on earth was just
preparing to cover the Shuswap
and Adams Lake districts like the
morning dow.
One of the big assets of Chase
is Shuswap Lake. Of course
Chase has no monopoly of it; we
share the lake with Salmon Arm
and Sicamous nnd all Ihe other
towns and settlements along its
shores. Whatever advantage accrues, however, from a location at
the outlet of the lake, at the
point at which the railway from
the coast first touches it, all be
long to Chase alpne.
This fortunate looation, more- . -v
over, makes Chase the inevitable
converging point of railways and
other roads that in the* next few
years must bo and assurdly will
be built along both the north ami
south shores. '
While tho valuo of the lake lo
Ihe town as a bringer of trade is
undoubted, II is to ils value in
another direction lhat ou^' attention is attracted Just now;
Noxt to a chance to work, perhaps the thing a man most needs
in this world Is a chance oncu in
a while to play. "Everyone knows
what all work and no play does.
There need be no dull boys in
Chase, nor girls either, if in their
spare hours men and women will
yield to what is left in them of
the boy and girl spirit, and hour
and answer the call of the lake.
Until the fishing season opens
on the first of May perhaps it is
safest to keep   off   the    water.

But that day of festive asso- \-,

The French-Canadian Educational

Sroblems. In local political circles
e has been recognized as a power
for many years and he is one of the
most skillful and influential workers

and in recent contests he has performed yeoman service for his party.
He has also done a great deal to
advance the cause of education^in

organizations. He was born in Quebec City and went to Ottawa in 1872.
He was educated in the Christian
Brothers schools and learned the
printing business when quite a young
man and he eventually became foreman and member of the editorial staff
of The Citizen when that journel was
controlled by ex-I.ieutenant-Governor
Hon. Charles Mackintosh. He was

Slang and Good English.
What is called slang, and is goner-
ally supposed to be of modern mintage, frequently turns out to bo good
old English. The word "guosa" used
in the sense of "think" or "suppose"
is often referred to by fastidious persons us a peculiarly American vulgarism; yet, the word is of ancient lineage, and was used by Chaucer to express the identical meaning whioh it
has in colloquial American speech.
Dry-as-dust etymologists may tell us
that when Chaucer said, "I guess,"
he meant, "I wiss," and not "I
think," or "I believe," but what do
Dry-as-dusts know about anything
anyhow? Anybody can supply an answer to suit himself.
An ancient use of the phrase "down
witli the dust" has just been found
in a story told by Fuller, the Elizabethan annalist and anecdote writer.
Fuller tells of a visit of Henry VIII.
in disguise to the monastery of Reading, where the abbot who entertained
the King marvelled at his tremendous
appetite. "I would give a hundred
pounds," said the abbot, "to feed so
heartily as you do." The same abbot, was later thrown into the Tower
of London and, after several days of
bread-and-water diet, a sirloin of beef
was set before the prisoner, while the
King, hiding in a lobby, watched.
The half-famished abbot foil to it with
such avidity that the King, springing
out, claimed his wager. The abbot,
says Fuller, came down with tho dust
and was glad he escaped."

FOR MAY 6, 1912.
The Tribune gracefully removes its hat (not the new one bought
us by Mr. Webster) and bows in deep appreciation of the many kind
words that have been wafted to us as a result of our first edition ���
which made its appearance on schedule time.
We had stipulated Friday the Twenty-Sixth as the date and we
simply had to make good. Some obstacles bobbed up, however, and if
apologies are due they should be accepted with explanations attached.
First there was the printing plant to unload and Bet in place; then the
building to remodel; and next a rush order to the type founders for
"sorts"���meaning the things you haven't got, but simply must have.
The dear type founders informed us that they were shy on some of the
articles. But just as soon as thoy could get a dime's worth from their
Seattle branch, two bits' worth from Oskaloosa and the rest from
Jersey City, the goods would be hurried along. Of course they didn't
get here in time.   Nor did the pipe fittings for the water motor.
We "dutchmaned" the forms the best we could under the circumstances. Willie Louie backed his wood-sawing machine up to the rear
window. And the wheels of progress rolled merrily forward. The
ohild was duly born and once more the country has yeen saved.

The time is not far distant when Chase will be noted as the great
est of all the summer resorts along the line of the Canadian Pacific
railway. Through passengers will be allowed stopover privileges at
this point. Perhaps they will even be enabled to leave the train at
Salmon Ann and come to Chase on a lavishly equipped C. P. R,
steamship over tha beautiful cool waters of the Shuswap lakes. Coming west over the main line, the tourist gets an overplus of prairie and
barren mountain scenery. Along the Shuswap lakes is found the first
touch of verdure. At Chase Nature has surpassed herself. Mountain
scenery blends charmingly with valley peaeefulness. And there is no
more beautiful lake to be found in the west than the little Shuswap,
on whose banks Chase is so happily situated. Those long sandy
.beaches are the delight of bathers from for and near. There aro fish
.-'in that little lake,'too. And in the tipper Shuswap late and Adams
lake. Fish galore, longing to close their mouths upon the tempting
bait of the fishermen. Yes, gentle reader, Chase will be the best
known summer resort in the west before many years are past,

Modesty, however, has withheld the identity of the artist. Howard
Smith is the man, and fortunate indeed is The Chase Tribune in having secured his services. For fifteen year he was a valued member of
the art staff of Judge, that funniest of American humorous publications. Today he is a Chase ranch owner, studying nature at close
range, Like his late friend ar.d fellow workman, Frederick Remington, Mr. Smith is a lover of horses and of the wild free life of the

When tho people of a town feel big, think big and act big���they
are big, The world accepts them at the estimate they place upon themselves. And the people of this big little town certainly feel as mighty
as any living human beings. They feel that they are helping build up
one of the best cities on the Western Hemisphere. Surley they are
justified somewhat in that belief. Four years ago the population of
Chase was two men and a dog. Today the population includes over
500 people and God only knows how many dogs, That's going somo,
isn't it?   And we aro getting ready to go some more.
We ore snch lovers of self reliance that wo excuse in a man
many sins, if he will show us a complete satisfaction in his position,
which asks no leave to be of mine or anyone's good opinion. But any
deference to some eminent man or woman of the world forfeits all
right to nobility. He is an underling. I have nothing to do with
him.   I will speak with his master.���Emerson,
Arthur Sullivan strikes a vibrant, though mournful, chord in his
Aahcroft Tribune editorial anent the Titanic disaster. He lays much
of the blame to the fact that the wireless operators are underpaid and
overworked. Mr. Sullivan speaks by the card,- too. He has served as
wireless operator on several trips. A tired man cannot do good work,
and a poorly paid one will not.
There are several thousand acres of good homestead land in the
vicinity of Chase. It lias temporarily been withdrawn from entry for
reasons of state. But it will soon be open to the homeseeker again;
that is the promise made by the Dominion government. And the
people of Chase are anxiously awaiting that re-opening.

The few verses In I.uko vl are a
part of his discourse In the presence
of His disciples and a great multitude
of people who came to hear Him and
to be healed of their diseases as He
came down from the mountain and
stood In the plain.    The teaching la
somewhat    alpllar    to that In laet
woek'a leaaon,   but the poverty and
hunger and weeping seem to be mora
literal    physical    conditions than In
the eermon   on the Mount; also by
contrast the riches and fullness and
laughter of veraes 24, 25.     The con-
atraat between the "now" and a future time la more   fully set forth In
the Luke   xvl lesson, and tbe bright
side of it is concisely stated in I Cor.
xili, 12, "Now we see through a glass
darkly, but then face to face; now I
know In part, but then shall I know
even as also I am known." As to lit-
I eral poverty,   we know the grace of
[im Lord Jesus Christ���that, though
He was rich, yet for our Bakes He became poor, that we through His poverty might be rioh (II Cor. vlll, 9),
and as we think   of   the Bethlehem
manger, the Nazareth home and tha
hunger and thirst   and homelessnesa
of His life ofttlmea In His public ministry we may perhaps Imagine something of ordinary   poverty, but who
can tell the full meaning   of the emptying, the service, the humility and
obedlenoe of Phil. 11. 7, 8, R. V.?   The
literally rich are often poor In spirit,
meek and lowly at heart, while the
literally    poor   are often proud and
aelf centered..    We must always remember that the Lord looketh on the
heart and   trleth the heart (I Sam.
xvl. 7; Jer. xvll. 10).     The "woe unto you when all men shall speak well
of you" of verse 25 seems not to be
a very popular verse In some quarters, for even preachers and evange-
lists have been known to hold back
the truth on certain great topics so
as to have   the approval of men, a
very   prominent   worker   having recently said publicity that he aimed
never to hurt the feelings of his fellow ministers,      How very different
from    Him    who said, "I do always
those things that please the Father."
and also from the apostle whoso principle   was "not as pleasing men, but
God,    who   who   trleth our hearts"
(John vlll.   29; Theas. 11. 4).     Concerning the topic of our lesson, "Poverty and    Riches." Luke abounds In
records of rich men, as In xil. 16;
xvi. 1; xvlil. 23; xlx. 1. besides the
rich    man and Lazarus of the last
ir lesson.     Prom these pas*
note that- a man's jJlfe con-
not   In   abundance   lof   the
things    which    he    possesseth, and
some would do well to ask themselves, "Then whose shall those things
be?"       Riches    sometimes make it
difficult for the owners to enter the
kingdom, and yet Zaocheus, who was
rich, did enter.     Sometimes the gifts
of the rich did not count as much in
His sight as   the gifts of the poor.
We are simply atewards, whether Intrusted with mysteries or money or
other thlngB, and we must give an ao-
count of our stewardship.     We may
so use tha. which is entrusted to us
to become rich toward God (Luke 11.
21). and those who have been helped
by ub to know   the Lord will make
greater to us the glory In His kingdom, while the Lord Himself will reward all His faithful ones at the resurrection of the just (Luke xvl. 14;
Rev. xxil. 12).     Our Luke xvi lesson
study   reads like a statement of facts
and there Is no reason why it should
be called a parable.     It Is the one
occasion    on  which our Lord drow
aside the veil and gave us too see
the unseen   realities after we leave
these    bodice,    plainly teaching for
each one It will be happiness or torment, not the highest degree of bliss
which will be the believer's portion
only   after   the   resurrection of the
righteous nor the deepest woe which
will bo the unbeliever's portion after
the    Judgment    of   the great white
throne, but a coneclous existence- In
bliss or wou,    with no possibility of
passing from ono to tile other.     The
reason of tho rich man's condition after death    was   not beoaUBe ho had
been rich, but from the last verso of
the chapter It Is evident that whon
on earth ho had no use for Moaoa or
the    prophets.       He waa not a be-
Hover in the Scriptures, but evidently
proud    and    self    satisfied.     After
death he proved tho reality of a place
of torment and became anxious that
his hrethern   should   not reaoh tho
same destination      He pleaded that
If one    went   from   the dead they
would believe, but was told that tha
writings of Mosrs and the prophets
were all sufficient.     We know from
John xi and   xll    that another man
named    Lazarus    did rise from the
dead, hut while some believed other.
Bought to   kill him again (John xil.
10. 11).       Our   blessed Lord Jesus
ChrlBt, by whom and for whom all
things were   created, knew the unseen realities as no one else did, and
we may count on every word He said
as being literally so.     By His death
for our sins   and resurrection from
the dead He has    provided forgiveness of sins, eternal life, eternal redemption, a Joint heirship with Himself for "whosoever will," and  only
those who receive Him are the truly
rich, for time and eternity (Prov. vill.
18;  Rev.    111. 18).     All   others are
poor indeed.     Oh, the multitudes ot
rich poor people!

Good Story Is
Heard at Shuswap
The following story was told
us by Geo, a. Coburn of Shuswap,
bul it's true for nil thai:
The village of Shuswap is looked down upon from the south hy
the long green slopes of some
hills that we don't know the name
i hough a steady-going quiet
burg, things happen thero sometimes. What I am about to tell
happened on a beautiful morning
in April, to be exact, it was on (t
Wedm sday morning about two
da\s I'go. Mr. Coburn, IhatV
Fred, had just moved out from
hid ranch in Turtle   Valley    lo
spend tho summer in the afoi	
said house lit tho lop of the ��r en
slopes. Among other valuables
he had broughl with liim n prize
turkey gobbler which lie had imported from the east, a bouneei
standing something less than si:
feet with his shoes off. Ur the
following morning, while making
a round of inspection if his new
home, his lordship, meaning no I
Fn d but tho turkey, met a neighbor to whom for some, reason he
toi I; a sudden dislike, a dislike so
violent that ho resolved to quit
his ntw quarters without dolnv.
The neighbor was Mr. Coyote.
-Mr. Gobbler measured with his
eye the throo quarters of a mile
of green slope that separated liim
from I ho G. P. II. station and instantly mado up his mind to become a citizen of Shuswap.
The peoplo of Shuswap aro of
the wide awake kind, if you don'l
eomo around before breakfast,
and are not slow to seo anything
onming there way. So it was that
a number of them standing on the
still ion platform spotted Mr. Gobbler almost tho moment he lit out
for town with his dislastefu'
neighbor close at his heels. Those
who witnessed the procession sas
it was tho sight of their lives. The
aclual time over the ooui'8- was
sixly-seven seconds���Geo Co-
burn limed it with a stop watch
���but to the spectators oil the
platform, pale with exciuu lent, it
seemed like sixty-seven hours.
Belting was lively, odds - to 1 in
favor of the coyote. A. G. Ialbot
had a hunch and backed the turkey, taking everything that of-
fored. Now Jerry talks about selling out his business anil living
on his money.
As the visitors neared town n
committee to go out and receive
them was appointed consisting of
Geo. A. Coburn, Chas. Dyers, and
A. G. Talbot. .Seeing this delegation of prominent citizens approaching, Mr. Coyote was seized
with a suspicion that they might
be going to arrest him for exceeding the speed limit, and lie ac-

Natural Resources Department of C.P.R. ha* Adopted a

Montreal��� One of the first results
of the creation of the natural resources department of hte C.P.R. la un-
noimced In Ihe adoption of a far-
reaching scheme for the colonization
of the company's land In Manitoba,
Saskatchewan  and  Alberta.
The most striking innovation In this
scheme is that tho C.P.R. will loan to
each selected colonist a sum of $2000
for a period of ten years at 6 per cent
per annum for use In the development
of his farm.
There are, of course, restrictive conditions attached to the loans, but
there Is not the slightest douui that
the enterprise will be largely taken
advantage of, and that the result will
be one of the most remarkable movements ever Inaugurated In connection

The conuuions drawn up are that
applicants should be married men
actually cngag"d In farming on a rented farm. These will be required to
own, free of encumbrance, sufficient
furniture, horses, cows and other live
stock to enable them to go Into Im
mediate occupation of their farms In
western Canada. Thua It will be
seen that the scheme has largely been
drawn up to meet the requirements of
farmers now renting land In the middle states of America.   ���
The applicants will bo required to
have sufficient capltil to make their1
first payment of one-tenth on the land
purchased and to cover the coat of
upkeep of their families for one year.
They will also be required to peraon-

amount of tbe loan nas to be expended'

The Mount Temple waa not the Vee-
���el that Sailed Within Five Mllea of
the Titanic���Meaaagea Received on
the Eventful Night.
St. John, N.B.���The rumor that the
steamer Mount Temple waa within
live mllea ol the Titanic when she
aaiik, and without heeding signals of
distress, steamed away, leaving 1600
souls to perish, U Indignantly denied
by Captain Moore, who waa In command of the vessel. His statement
Is as follows:
"We received a wireless message-
midnight Sunday from the Titanic
stating that she had struck an Iceberg
and to come at once. We turned a-
bout at 12.30 o'clock, and steamed
back to the position given us, arriving
there at 4.30 o'clock. We encountered so much loe, however, that we
stopped until day light. We cruised
about, but could not see any sign of
the ship. About six a.m., on the
other side of an Immense field of Ice,
studded thickly with bergs, we saw
the Carpathla. We also eaw the
California, which was to the northward
of us, steaming west, then coming
down to southward, and she met us-
She did not communicate anything.
At 8.40 o'clock, ship's time, we received a general message that the Carpathla had picked up twenty boats.
We asked If they wanted assistance,
but got no reply. Shortly after vs
received another general meaaage
stating, 'Nothing more can be done;
no need to stand by.' We then left
the scene and proceeded on our way."
Captain Moore said that soon as he
turned about, he called all hands on
deck and Immediately put them to
work getting boats ready to be lowered, allotting ropes and accommodation ladders In readiness for service.
He placed men and crewa, and had
one sailor hoisted to the very top of
the mast, instructing him to keep a
sharp lookout. When he turned his
ship and rushed back among immense
Ileitis of ice, he was doing so at a
great cost, for he had on board 1461
passengers besides his crew. Nevertheless be promptly answered the call
for help.
Captain Moore said that when he
turned away from the scene to continue on bis course, the steamers Carpathla, California, Burma, Frankfurt
and a tramp were In the vicinity.
"Furthermore," he said, 'what do the
people who were on board my steamer
know what I was doing or where I
was going?" How could they tell in
what direction I waa sailing? It was
past midnight, and they were below.
The statement Is absurd. Leaving
humanity out of the question, do you
not think thnt I would have liked to
have been the lucky one to pick up
these people?
Walter Long Will Come Here to Find
Out About Home  Rule  Feeling
London.���Walter Long, MP., speaking at Dulwlch recently declared after reading the home rule bill that he
could not understand how men outside
of the walls of Bedlam could have
such a measure. Far from being a
boon to Ireland, it was an Insult to
their Intelligence.
If parliament Is not sitting In August and September, the former Irish
secretary said he meant to visit Cana
da and place the whole question of
Home Rule before the Unionists of
the Dominion Long ago when Great
Britain was engaged In a struggle
with South Africa, Canada sent a
magnificent contingent, while the
Irish members did their beBt to prevent men from Ireland joining the British army and navy.
He was going to ask Canada what
she thought of the party which could
be guilty of an attack of that kind
and of men who tried to paralyze our
hands and check our power. "They
were traitors."
He believed that If the case were
put to Canada. It would be found
there were not In the Dominion the
support for the Home Rule as we un
del-stand It-
Calgary and the Grain Routes,
Calgary, Alta.���H. W. Patterson, of
Ihe Winnipeg grain exchange, when
Interviewed regarding Calgary's future as a grain centre, expressed the utmost confidence In the strategic advantages of this section of the province. Mr Patterson looks for tre
mendous development to take place as
a result, of the shipment of grain
through Pacific ports after the opening of tho Panama Canal; and he argues for the encouragement of the
grain trade along the lines that will
pnsuro Its exportation through Canadian ports. Other well-known authorities confirm this opinion, som-"
even going so i'ar as to predict tha'.
the coming autumn will see record
grain shipments from Alberta going
out by way of Vancouver. It Is undoubtedly a fact that the experiences
of the past year have turned the attention of shippers as never before to
the Western outlet for middle Western products.

Ottawa���During the flacal year

j ports  and   121,451  from  the  United

14,645 from the United States. Immigration for the month of March
this year shows a gain of 7 per cent,
I over that of March last year.
Faat Becoming Difficult to Get Homesteads Though Still Land .'or Sal*.
Winnipeg.���Hon. Arthur L. Sltton
Premier of Alberta, back from the
East, feels quite jubilant over the
prospects In Alberta this year. Spring
opened up early and was finer than
has been knowu tor twenty years.
Seeding started early and has been
proceeding under favorable conditions. Larger acreage than ever
before has been planted, and so far as
can be guessed In advance prosper*
are favorable for banner crops.
Settlers for both farms and towns
are crowding In at an i nprecedented
rate. It Is faat becomli g difficult t��
gat homesteads In the south, though
land for sale Is still plentiful. The
rush, however, Is to Grande Prairie
and the Peace River Valley, which
have received widespread atentlon of
late and are apparently to be the favorite points tnls year for the great
bulk of the newcomers.
This will also be a banner year for
Alberta In regard to railway work.
The Canadian faclflc are building a
branch east from Lethbrldge and one
south from Sufneld, through the Irrigated lands of the South Alberta
Company, and efforts will he made
by this company to have the same
continued as far as Kipp, In order to
assist settlers lr, uotween who have
been raising large crops for som--
The C.P.R. have been strongly
urged to start this line from both
ends, bo as to ensure for this fall the
much needed outlet for a large district contiguous to their lines but too
far for profitable hauling.
The Grand Trunk Pacific now have
a gang of men completing the Tofleld
to Calgary line, and has promised
steel for the same for delivery upon
the opening of navigation. That
line la accordingly assured to Calgary
this season.
The Edmonton, Dunvegan and British Columbia Railroad has secured
all necessary money and has purchased steel for the season's work. They
will start construction before May 1,
and laying of the steel as soon as
navigation opens.

Caribou Brotherhood.
(Continued from page 1)
the end that the same may be
properly compiled for fuluto
publication in book form.
Many societies have of late
years been brought lo tho notice
of the public, which have had
nothing of interest to attract the
members, after the novelty of the
initiation ceremonies had worn
off, and whose names merely
represented a collection ol zoological designations.
The Caribou Brotherhood,
while it bears the name of a
quadruped indigenous to British
Columbia, is not intended lo represent an animal, but lith district
in which the incidents occurred
which the Order designs to perpetuate and preserve; and the
emblem of the Order, therefore
consists not of an animal's head
but of the working tools of the
miner, prospector and rancher,
who inhabit this wonderful district.
Any student of the history of
British Columbia recognizes the
fact that the principal cities of
the province owe their- earliest
successes to the gold which the
Cariboo miner brought down and
dispensed with a lavish hand. In
those days there were no authors
to chronicle passing events or to
describe either in prose or in
verse the romantic story of the
greatest stampede for gold in the
early history of Canada, and il
therefore behoves us, the present inhabitants of the count
do all in our power to preserve
the wonderful story of the hardships and perils, undergone, nnd
the successes achieved by the pioneers, who did so much to open
up this marvelnusly rich province to the world.
The Lakes of Shuswap.
(Continued from page 1)
H. Traynor, of Scotch Cieck
was in town mi Saturday. Mr.
Traynor, a life Jong prospector
and miner, came into this country ten years ago and took up
land. Since that time, in addition to his farming operations he
has spent a few months each
summer n prospecting the country lying north of Shuswap Lake,
and also in the "cotton belt," a
strip of country rich in minerals
situated lo the northeast of Seymour Arm. Mr. Traynor believes there is a future of big
mining development in store for
that district.
Mr. C. A. Howard was a Chase
viiitor for several days. He is
conneoted with the Dominion
Stock Bond Corporation of Vancouver. Ho is a clean pleasant
chap and numbers his friends in
Chase by the extent of his acquaintances. This particular section appeals to him as being the
one best bet in B. C. That's why
ho stayed so long, and why he will
return later,
Chase that wo must not forget
It's the Dam Camp, spelled 'dam'
not 'damn.' You cross the lake
from Chase to the A. R. L. Co.'s
landing on the north shore. From
there six miles by stage lakes you
to the Adams Lake House, where
you will be welcomed by the genial proprietor, Frank Sturgill.
The Ashing is not good there jusl
yet, but soon will be, and when il
is good it can't be beaten. Watch
Frank's ad in the Tribune and
he'll put you wise.
Therei is no cleaner, healthier,
more invigorating sport than that
to be found on the lakes and
streams within ten miles of
Chase. As these unexcelled opportunities for enjoyment and
recreation become better known,
our town will become the mecca
for many a business man who,
worn with the routine of the office, will break away from his
desk to recuperate his energies
on those coo) and quiet lakes
among the hills. They're coicing
to Chase."

Tbe abores of Lake Leman. common,
ly called elsewhere Lake Geneva, an
thick with historical Incidents. The
city of Geneva waa tbe borne ot Cat-

and otbsr celebrltlea. At Chlllon la

a prisoner, as related In Byron's poem.
At Vevey, on a hillside aome distance

hidden by the trees surrounding It. 1��
the old caatle of Blonay. Tbere is a
atory-a true story���with which this
castle la connected dating away back
to tbe twelfth century. Those were
the days of feudalism, and tbe Blonnya,
who built and owned tbe castle were
feudal followers of tbe counts of Savoy. They seem to have been in favor with their sovereigns, for they Sued various offices of trust under them.
The Blonays came across tbe lake from
Challals and built the castle In 1175.
One day a number of knights of
Turin, the capital of Savoy, were
wrangling over the question wbetber
marriage made a man more efficient aa
a soldier or less eo. Tbe married
knights claimed that a wedded soldier
would not only be sensitive to his reputation for bravery on his own account,
but also on account of his wife and children, Tbe unmarried knights declared
that they were more efficient because
they bad only themselves to live for,
whereas bavins a lovely wife and little ones tbe dread of separation from
them by death would sap their courage.
The dispute between tbe knigbts ot
Turin waxed hot, and, since the question could be settled only by being put
to the test, challenges began to fly between the benedicts and tbe bachelors,
and It looked its if many families would
be made fatherless and many young
men well fitted to become progenitor)

His Majesty's mail has quite astonishing privileges. Its drivers have
power to requisition aid of any kind
to avoid delay in deliveries, and City
Solicitor Johnston of Toronto tells an
interesting experience to show how
this is sometimes done.
Ab a member of a hunting party
he was being driven one day over
one of the indescribably bad roads of
Northern Ontario. The driver had the
mail on board; he was taking it to a
place called South Eiver. Mr. Johnston is a big man, and as a heavy
passenger he may have been the cause
of the trouble whioh occurred. Anyway, one of the horses gave out, and
it looked to the Toronto hunters as
il they were going to be stranded for
days in the wilds.
The mail driver didn't take that
view at all. Happening to be near
the home of a settler, he simply went
to that worthy's stable, picked the
best horse he found there, led it out.
and put in its place the worn-out
animal. The settler came out on the
jump. "Here," he shouted, "what in
blazes are you doing? Put that horse
of mine back quick or there'll be
"No," said the driver coolly, "I
won't put it back and there won't be
any trouble. I've got to get the mail
to South River to-night. I need your
horse to make the trip and I've full
power to take it. I'll bring it back
in the morning."
And to South River the mail went,
with the settler's bOBt horse making
one of the team which took it. The
driver was quite within his rights.
Highly Unnecessary.
No man is more methodical in following the regular forma of Parlia-
mentary expression and procedure
than Hon. T. 8. Sproule, the present
Speaker of the House of Commons.
When the House adjourned the other
morning shortly after one o'clock, Mr.
Speaker caused a smile by seizing
his three-cornered hat and gravely
declaring: "This House stands adjourned until this morning at eleven
o'clock in the forenoon." It does not
appear to be the Speaker's fault if
certain members forget or neglect the
morning sittings.
The Nomad Farmer.
One of the most remarkable things
about the western provinces of Canada
is the number of nomad farmers who
come in from the United States to
raise flax and wheat. These farmers
from the States have had wide experience; they know that from these
rich Canadian lands they can make
more money growing wheat and flax
on a large scale than in growing feed
to fatten cattle, hogs, or turkeyB, or in
raising eggs, poultry, butter, cream,
or vegetables. They come over to Cauada with gasoline plants to plow and
sow and reap and thresh. Tney have
even motor vehicles to take the wheat
and flax seed to the elevators. They
are 50,000 of them that have not got
a hog nor a cow nor ,a hen on their
farms. They import the eggs, poultry,
butter, and bacon that they use from
Quebec and Ontario, and the potatoes, vegetables and fruit from British
Columbia, and if they use milk it is
canned. Neither the farmer nor the
help he requires for his wheat or
flax want to milk cows, feed chiokena,
gather the eggs, or weed vegetable
But these wheat and flax farmers
are nomads. They winter in Spokane,
or Seattle, or Lob Angeles, or Vancouver, and they come to the prairies in the spring and sow the grain
crop. They watch it grow from the
nearest tower, and marshal their��har-
vesters, and when ripe they reap it,
thresh the grain, and market it. Then
they plow up the land for next year'si
crop. The farm laborers have only
four months' steady employment at
this kind of farming, and di-ring the
Iout montha they earn good money,
and, like their employers, they migrate to the near-by towns or cities
and spend their winters. There must
be 100,000 farm laborers of the nomad
tribe in the Canadian prairies.���The

Metaphysical History.
It has fallen to the lot of Mr. J. H.
Burnham to inject what a member
of the Press Gallery termed "historical metaphysics" into the considerations of Parliament. Following Mr.
A. Verville, Labor member for Mais-
onneuve, who was the other day criticizing the increased expenditure on
the Militia Departmnet, the Peter-
boro member gravely announced:
"Ten minutes' study of history will
show that if the ancient Empire of
Rome had been able to defend herself we would have been two thousand
years ahead of where we are now, instead of being two thousand years
And accurate Hansard chronioled
the utterance.

Interfered. Perbaps some women wbu
feared to be made widows or young
girls who dreaded to lose their lovers
objected. At any rate, tbe married and
single knights met in conclave and decided to settle the matter by championship. A few on each aide were appointed to arrange tbe terma and select
the champion. Those agreed upon
were these; A married man waa to
meet a single man In contest. If the
married knlgbt were defeated he should
go to Mademoiselle ot Savoy and all
other marriageable women of her
house, as well as another lady to be
named by tbe victor, and on his bended knees cry mercy. Tbo bachelor
knlgbt If defeated, should humiliate
himself to all the married ladles of tbe
ducal house and especially the wife of
his conqueror.
A gay scene marked the trial of this
important question. Today contests
between married and single men uro
unprofessional and usually burlesque,
-jot so this tournament All knights
were fighters, and tjo who was considered the best married knight was pitted against the best single knlgbt Simon de Blonay was to represent the
married side, while Corsant de Bresse
defended the cause of the bachelors.
There were ladles present bended by
Mademoiselle de Savoy, tbe ancestress
of one of tbe most beloved women of
royal blood of the present day, tho
dowager Queen Margaret of Italy and
others of the ducal house and tbe
nobility. But whether they were unanimous or divided in their sympathies
between tbe two sides baa not been
handed down through the centuries.
Naturally tbe good wishes of tbe maidens would be with the bachelor, but
as all women are In fuvor of murrlagc,
or were at that time, they should all
have prayed for tbe success of tbe
married knlgbt for would not his
victory prove that a married man is a
better ono than a single man and the
result be conducive to matrimony?
Be this as it may, when all were
seated In the lnclosure where the fight
was to take place, amid a waving ot
fans and bonnets and a Sourish of
trumpets, the two champions, armored
and armed, rode out to the field, De
Blona/ heavier, filled out In waist and
chest, and De Bresse tall and slender, no superfluous fat mingled with
his hard muscles. At the signal the
two, poising their lances, made a dash
at each other.
At this llrst onset neltber was unhorsed, neither wounded. Again and
again their lancea came togetber, and
at laat In one ot theae encounters De
Urease's lance was shivered, and he
was left defenseless. Tbe married
knlgbt bad won.
Corsant de Bresse rode up before
the queen, dismounted, knelt and
with banging bead cried for mercy.
He repeated the ceremony to tbe other
ladles to whom tbe terms ot the tourney compelled bim to subject himself
and then rode away to Vevay to bend
the knee to tbe wife of bis conqueror.
Now. in those days there were no
telephones or telegraphs In that land.
Indeed, tbere were no regular malls.
One afternoon Mme. de Blonay, who
waa Ignorant of the tournament was
sitting on her caatle terrace with her
baby on her lap, looking cut on the
placid waters ot Lake Leman. A mailed horseman ascended tbe hill and,
dismounting below where tbe lady sat
came up on to the terrace and, bending
the knee, said:
"Mme. de Blonay, I cry you mercy."
"You cry me mercy I" exclaimed the
astonished woman. "You. an armed
knlgbt, cry mercy of me, not only without weapons, but Incumbered with my
"Yes, madam. I am Corsant de
Bresse. I bave met your husband In
battle, be tbe champion of tbe married
knigbts ot Turin, 1 representing the
single knights. 1 bave been conquered
by him, and by tbe terms of tbe tournament I have come to cry mercy from
his wife."
As soon as Mme. de Blonay understood the situation, recognizing tbe
fact that her husband bad won a victory for marriage, she conceived tbe
idea of winning a second victory, not
witb lance or battleax, but with woman's own weapons.
"Arise. Sir Knight" she said.   "I
grant you mercy on one condition."
"Name it, good lady."
"That you be my guest at a feast
which I shall give In your bonor with
the noblea living u round about"
"Thanks, madame, that you accompany your mercy with a boon Instead
ot a penance. 1 will be your guest
most willingly."
Immediately Mme. de Blonay dispatched messengers to those to be Invited to the feast Including her young
and beautiful cousin, Yolnnde de VII-
lette. When all were assembled Mme.
de Blonay placed Yolande beside her,
seating Corsant de Brcsae where he
could feast bla eyes on her beauty.
There was a clinking of glasses and
many a word of good natured derision
fired at the bachelor cause In the recent contest.
"Alas!" he said. "Would that I had
a wife to defend me against this raillery 1"
He accompanied the worda witb a
look of appeal at Yolande, who blushed and lowered her eyea.
Cries of "Deserter!" "Renegade!"
and the like were hurled at him from
the bachelors present while "Come
overl" "Welcome to our ranks!" and
similar badinage came from tbe married persons.
Afrur ihe guests were gone De
Bresse declared to Mme. de Blonay
that he had had enough of tbe unmarried side nnd. since he had become
smitten with her niece, begged that
she would Intercede for him with Yolande.
"How, now, Sir Knight" said the
lady. "Ha'-lnr; been beaten at feats
of arms by n married man, do you
now beg tbe assistance ot a married
"By my spurs, madame! I am mote
afraid of the girl than ot either you
or your husband."
"Well, then, you must either win
your matrimonial spurs as you bave
already won those of knighthood or
remain a craven."
With that she opened a door and
ushered him Into a room with Yolande. What took place tbere has not
been handed down, except tbat after
awhile De Breasc came out, strutting
like a- peacock, and informed bla hostess that he had won this fight far
more easily than her husband bad
vanquished bim In tbe tourney.
After a brief courtship tbe young
fiance rode back to Turin. He bore u
scrap of paper from Mme. Blonay to
her husband, on which sbo had written: "You have conquered with man's.
1 bave gained a victory for tbe same
cause with woman's weapons. You
fenced with an insensible lance, I with
n beautiful girl."
Corsant de Bresse, returning an affianced husband, excited a great deal
of merriment in Turin. The married
knights Welcomed him among tbelr
number, and tbe single knights talked
of another tournament in which tbe
renegade should defend his newly
chosen side against one of tbelr number, who should punish bim for his desertion. But the Count of Savoy forbade any further fighting, and. tbere
being demoralization among tbe bachelors both on account of tbflr defeat
and De Bresse's joining tbe enemy's
ranks, many 'more deserted, and many
maidens gained noble husbands.

lake and among other sights viewed
from tbe boat look at Castle Blouay.
You can fancy a good woman sitting
on the terrace 700 years ago with a
baby on ber lap and a plumed knight
riding up tbe slope to cry her mercy.
And, remembering how he rode again
down tbat same slope an engaged man,
having turned bis back lnglorloualy on
tbe side for which he had so recently
fought, you will say to yourself, "Verily, a woman's wit Is mightier than the

technical combat; the same subtlety
in reconciling the irreconcilable and
explaining the inexplicable.
Fate, in bestowing favor upon hi��
party, was, however, unkind to Arthur Meighen. It robbed him of the
Great Chance. He was a youthful

one week, to be eaten as a delicacy.
