George Chase Advises K, of P, Con-1 Prospectors Declare That Some Great
vention That Chase Is the
Place to Meet,
An All Year Madness, More Infections Thnn Rubies.
God loves the people of Chase! There
is little doubt of that now. If he did
not love us dearly he would never give
us this glorious weather.
The morning of the Twenty-Fourth
of May dawned bright and clear, after
two days of stormy threatening weather. Empire Day in Chase was celebrated under the most auspicious circumstances.
Early in the morning the people began pouring into town from the outlying districts. Kamloops, Shuswap,
Celista, Notch Hill, Blind Bay, Adams
Lake, Squilax, and Salmon Arm were
well represented. The town had been
' 'gdrfjuoualy decorated toy the Fivei.iei j
whohad theeventin charge. Evergreen
trees were placed all along the main
street, arches were built and the merchants and householders vied with one
another in decorating their places of
business arid residences. Louis Bean
won the cash prize for the beBt decorated building. ,
At 10:30 the Chase Brass Band formally opened the celebration by tearing
off a number of lively airs up town,
Then they marched down to the ten-
fifty-six train and met the visitors
from Salmon Arm and Notch Hill.
And from that time on there was something doing every minute of the day
and night. At four o'clock-Saturday
morning the Home Sweet Home waltz
was played. If any body failed to
have a good time they can' get their
money back. We had enough fun for
two men, ourselves.
The sports of the day took place
down on the watar front, where pavilions had been erected and all preparations made for the acommodation
of the crowd.
In the race for boys under 12, Henry
Nelson won first prize and Jamie
Brown second.
Boys 15 and under, 100 yards: Kid
Smith, first; Tommy Lee, second.
Girls 12 and under, Mary Haldane,
first; Elva White, second.
Girls 15 and under, 100 yards: Roberta
White, first; Gladys Spencer, second.
There were three entries for walking
the greasy pole. Messrs. C. Kelly W.
Kelly and T. Harris essayed to reach
the flag at the outer end of a 20-foot
pole stuck out over the placid waters
of the lake. The two Kellys found the
pathway too slippery, but Harris treaded the straight and narrow way successfully. He is ten dollars to the good as
a result.
Not enough entries qualified for the
log rolling contest. Dennis Sanders
was there with bells���and caulked shoes.
But no one apparently wanted his
Of course Chase won the base ball
game from Salmon Arm. We will tell
about that in another story.
And Chase won the tug of war from
the mill team. The Chase team was
comprised as following: MurryBalmer
anchor man, Andy Bond, Dennis
Sanders, Ed. Anderson, Ed. Cohoe,
John Brown, Chummy Cummings,
Alfred Wing.
On the mill team were Messrs. Mat-
son, ^.Anderson, Engelbrikson, Zilka,
Seagraves, Crampton and three more
huskies of Belgian extraction.
Tom Gahan was captain of the mill
team and H. L. McLean was captain of
the Chase team.
Murry Balmer and John Brown won
the two-man canoe race.   They   were
crowded at the start by a team composed of John Heitzman and Harry
Scott. Toward the finish, however,
Balmer and Brown showed their superior class by pulling away from their
rivals. Felix and Toma, the Indian
team made a rather poor third.
There were no entries for the two-
squaw race, the one-man boat race nor
the five-man bateau race.
Frank White won the 100-yard dash
for men, with Tyler of Salmon Arm as
The 50-yard dash for women was
won by MrB. Styles, with Miss Loyst
The sack race was won by Frank
White, with Jcjh/. Olso^ aecpnd.
Frank White and Sandy Graham won
the 8-legged race.
Jimmie Joseph won the pony race
and Alfred Wing was second.
Fletcher the Salmon Arm pitcher
won the running hop-step-and-jump.
AIbo he copped the money for the running long jump,
John Lundy of Notch Hill won the
contest for throwing the shoulder
stone, 28 ft 4 in.      ,    ,
After the event scheduled on the
regular program had been disposed of
there was a matched pony race between Louis Cumming and Tommy
Harris for a small side bet. Harris'
pony won the race.
The dance at Robinson's hall in the
evening was probably the most delightful affair of the kind aver held in
Chase. There had been some dancing
at the pavilion in the afternoon. Music was furnished by the famous Buckingham, Bragg, and Brown orchestra
of Celista and Blind Bay. Harry Fowler was official caller-off. There was
some crowd and everyone had a swell
time. The floor was in perfect con-
idtion and the music was the best ever.
At midnight, Miss Jean Brown entertained the dancers with an exemplification of the sword dance. She won
the hearty applause of her audience
and certainly proved herself an adept
at the dance. The McLean sisters from
Blind Bay performed the highland fling
in a manner that was altogether pleasing.
Altogether the celebration was e
great success and the Chase Fire Department is to be congratulated therefor. The Department will clean up
nearly enough money on the affair to
pay off its old indebtedness.
The Chase Brass Band made a wonderful showing, considering the short time
that has elapsed since its organization.
The members are to be congratulated
upon having a leader such as Mr. James
The Fire Department committee in
charge of the celebration consisted of
the following: Wm. Cameron, chief;
H. L. McLean, assistant chief; Ernest
Bradley, clerk; W. J. Clifford, treasurer; Andy Bond, L. Cumming Tom
Leadstone and T. W. Gordon. To these
men belongs a great measure of the
credit for the success of the Empire
Day celebration.
Another individual who should not be
forgotten in this regard is Robert
Robinson. He built the pavilion and
otherwise improved the pleasure grounds
for the occasion. Mr. .Robinson has
always been known as one of the progressive citizens of Chase. He is ever
to the fore when there is a chance to
give the people a good time. And if
Bob does not always come out a finan
cial Winner, he is at least a good sport
and considers he has won something
when he gains the friendship of the
populace as he has in this instance.
A Dandy Feed.
The Bible Class of the Presbyterian
church furnished dinner and supper for
the multitude at the lake shore on Empire Day. The Gollen boat house was
used for the affair and it proved entirely successful from a financial standpoint.
Quite a neat surplus was netted and
those who were fortunate enough to
get in on the big feed report it as be-
Chase Wins.     '
The Chase Base Ball team has won its
opening game of the 1912 season. The
Salmonbellies were the victims on the
24th of May. That their defeat was
not more signal than it was is due largely to luck, which seemed to be with
them from the start. The score was 9
to 12 in favor of Chase.
Hubert Chase pitched for the locals
and he certainly had the stuff on the
ball. The boys from Salmon Arm failed
to find him for anything that would
have amounted to more than a single on
good grounds. The bumpy lawn, of
course, was responsible for many ludri-
crous plays on both sides. Zilka, the
Chase catcher, is great goods. He was
on the job at all times. Old Ritt held
down the initial sack with the greatest
of eclat, while Walter Lammers made
some startling play3 out on secoudbase.
Rittman and Lammers do the two brothers act in the inner garden quite successfully. Ernest Bradley emulated the
great Honus Wagner at shortstop.
The girls call him the candy kid. He
certainly was there with the sticky
front whent the salmonbellies paddled
the horsehide his way. Seagray waa
general manager at the third sack. He
managed to nip in the bud the aspirations
of many an ambitious visitor. Kilmer.
Sandhal and Stafford formed a triumvirate in the outer gardens that was
hard to beat. They all showed exceptional agility in chasing the high ones
and embracing the bounders.
The game Btarted off with Chase a
little in the lead. The big fat man who
managed the Salmon Arm team took
umbrage at some of the decisions of
Umpire Tom Leadstone. He was met,
bay window to bay window, by the big
fat man who manages the Chase team.
The book of rules was Mashed forth,
bay windows rubbed and rumbled and
finally the big fat man from Salmon Arm
subsided before the big fat man from
Chase. In the fatal fifth the salmonbellies went wild with the heat. They
ran in about five scores before anyone
could turn on the hose. Then Mr. Robert
Sainsbury of the government diving
ship, Pelican, came to the rescue. He
organized a little band of lifesavers and
brought his heavy artillery to bear upon
the ranks of the invaders. Down they
went, one by one. Uncle Boh got their
goats and the girls tied their whiskers

George Chase haB returned from Na-
niamo where he attended the twenty-
third aunual convention of the Grand
Lodge of Knights of Pythias. He was
there as a delegate from Chase lodge.
Mr. Chase reports having had a delightful time at the coal mining city. He
says the town was thrown open to the
visitors and every effort was made to
give the guests a good time.
f Next year the convention will be held
at North Vancouver. And the year following there is a fair chance that it
may be held in Chase. The matter was
broached to many of the delegates at
this convention and all of them seemed
enthused with the ideaqf coming to such
a garden spot as this to spend a summer
outing. Mr. Chase took the matter up
with a number of prominent Knights
and received assurance of their support
at the convention next year. Further
action will likely be taken by the local
Mr. Chase witnessed an exhibition of
flying machines while he was in Vancouver. He says they are the clear rig
and he is thinking seriously of getting a
few of them to use in this fall's rodeo
of hill cattle.
Good-bye Teddy.
Mr. Robert I. Verrall, better known as
"Teddy," departed on Sunday night's
train for Vancouver, where he has been
called to accept a position in the Imperial Bank of Canada.
Mr. Verrall has been with the Chase
branch of the Bank ever since it was
founded about a year ago. He has
made many friends in Chase, both in a
business and social way. All of them
were sojry to learn of hla ^partuje,
but were "gliA to*now tnat tife "change

place in the Chase bank has been taken
by Mr. Alfred McCauley, formerly of
the Kamloops. branch.
Saturday night the friends of Mr.
Vejjrrall gave a farewell dance in his
honor at the Robinson hall. A large attendance was had and a fij jt-elass time
was enjoyed notwithstanding the fact
that nearly everyone had danced all
night the night before. The famous
three B orchestra from Celista and
Blind Bay furnished music, which was
even better than that of the night previous.
Showings Have Been Made On
Claims Near Seymour Arm.
Frank Munger of Duck Range and
Jos. Blair of Lob Angeles were in Chase
Monday on their way to the Seymour
Arm country where they have mining
These gentlemen report there are a
number of excellent copper prospects in
that vicinity and a very good chance of
some of them at least developing into
big producing mineB before many months
have passed. The whole country is
heavily mineralized and there are a
number of gold and silver prospects
there as well as the copper.
Predictions are freely made by prospectors who are acquainted with the
Seymour Arm country that there is apt
to be a mining excitement stirred up in
that neck o' the woods at any time.
There will be more prospecting in that
region this summer than there has been
for many seasons past as a result of the
excellent showings made there last year.
The Ladies aid will hold their buisness
meeting on Friday May 31st at the home
of Mrs. Cameron. As this will be the
last buisness meeting of the summer,
all members are urgently requested to
be in attendance.
Mrs. Cameron,

Sawyer of the Adams River Lumber
At a recent meeting of the Chase
Board of Trade the secretary was instructed to write a letter to the general
superintendent asking that the Imperial
Limited make regular stops here. Secretary Haylock has received the following information from General Superintendent F. W. Peters:
"Referring to your letter of May 16,
I beg to advise that our new timetable
which goes into effect June 2nd, train
No. 3 westbound is to Btop at Chase at
10:25. No. 13 also steps there at 21:21.

Chase People Put Swell Residence
Subdivision On Market
For Quick Sale.
A syndicate of Chase capitalists has
platted an addition to the town known
as the Bench addition. It is part of the
high plateau lying to the east of the
school house and it is regarded as one
of the best residence sections yet put
on the market.
Louis Bean the enterprising real
estate man was quick to note the advantages of the new addition as a aelU
ing proposition. He has secured the
agency for a block of the lots.
Bench addition overlooks Little Shuswap lake. It is one of the highest
points in the townsite and is yet near
enough to the business center of the
city to be but a pleasant walk. There
are about 80 lots now on the market
and nearly a dozen of them have already been sold. Chase and Revelstoke parties have made reservations
in the new addition, realising the advantages from a residence standpoint.
There are 28 acres in the original tract
which was purchased from the Chase
estate. About 12 acres have been Included in this subdivision and it is al-*
most a certainty that the remaining
acreage will have to be placed on the
market in the near future.
Sullivan Celebrated.
Arthur Sullivan, editor of the Asheroft Journal, came over to Chase last
Friday and helped himself to a good
time. Here is what he says of our
Twenty-Fourth of May celebration:
"Many places throughout the country
celebrated the 24th but at no place in
the Dominion was the day more enthusiastically kept than at the small
but wonderfully progressive town of
Clrase where we were t privileged to/'
paittcipat',v with the Jvlwle" "l^riaji
citizens of the lovely littje burg. Contests of all kinds wer' indulged in, including a ball game in which Chase
came out winner. We imagine that
the ladies'of Chase, with the assistance
of a large blue quilted gentleman with
the umbrella, contributed not a little to
the success of the game. Chase is one
of the loveliest places imaginable and
with the close proximity of the charming lake will some day become the centre
of attraction for the leisure classes of
our big cities. While the attractions
of the place are truely beautiful we
cannot help but remark the unanimity
amongst the citizens and the progressive
spirit of every man in the vicinity
which should be an example for every
town to follow throughout the country."
There will be Anglican Church service
in the All Saints Church rooms at Chase
on Sunday. June 2nd at 7:30 p. m.
Rev. George Stewart of Monte Creek
will preach.

All over the North American continent the wave of Reform has
spread. Principally the reformers Bre after the Drink Demon���the
hydra-beaded monster that has peeked over so many transoms in the
cold gray dawning of the morning after.
But they are cutting off the wrong head. They are after the men
who peddle the booze instead of the men who consume it.
A renowned reformer, whose identity must be concealed at least
for the present has suggested the following plan: Let the present
laws for the regulation of the tavern still prevail. Then let tbere be a
tax on the consumer, simile/ to the present hunting license for example. Let every one who wishes to become a drinker come before a
local board of control and be passed upon as to his qualifications; let
him sign a great register similar to a voters list; and let there be issued
to him a license to drink intoxicating liquors; give him a tag like unto
a dog tag.   And, in the language of the poet, let him hop to it.
Under the new system the present laws regulating the conduct
of booze comedians would remain in force. When a man became a bad
actor he would lose his license, his tag would bo takeu away from him
and bis name would be scratched off the boozetighters register, Then
he would have to go through a course of reformation before he could
get his name back on the list again. At the second offense he would
find himself cut off at the pockets entirely and the only way he could
get into tbe magic circle again would be to go to a new country and
begin all over again,
Tbis seems like an alright scheme. When a fellow cares enough
about joiuing,the ranks of the O-be-joyfuls to come out boldly and
' -declare Vimfclf before his fellow men' he should be allowed to drink,
Be should be allowed to "tip one over" every time he felt lucky and
lad the price. Many a man has been saved from a pessimist's grave
through the judicious application of joy water. But when the disciple
of Bacchus so far oversteps tbe bounds of decency as to make himself
obnoxious to his fellows, it is time his rations were cut down and he
were relegated to the ash can.
There will be a great many summer tourists pass through Chase
this season. Some of them will stop off here and many more of them
will wish they had���when they find out what sort of a beauty spot
there is down at the end of that Little Shuswap lake. Each succeeding year sees more and more touriBts taking advantage of the grand
possibilities of the Shuswap lakes as summer resorts. And now comes
the assurance that the Canadian Pacific Railway will do a great deal of
advertising for the lakes in the future. The railroad company realizes
that it has been passing up one of. the best scenic propositions
along its line by running most of its trains through here after nightfall. Tbey realize tbat tbey are failing to exploit the most charming
scenery ulong tho line by not telling the world about the beautieB and
grandeur of the Shuswap and Adams lakes,
We once heard an alleged philosopher and sage make the remark:
"If I had a son who smoked cigarets and I could not break him of the
habit, I would take him down to the river aud puBh him in." We would
revise that u bit and say that if wo hud a kid that smoked cigarots and
we could not break him of the habit, we would go down to the lake and
jump in. The man who has lost his influence with his children has
made a fizzle of tha father business.
Can it be possible that, Ihe big Kamloops papers are just a trifle
jealous of tbelr fast growing little neighbor, Cliase? The Standard
mentioned the Empire Day celebrations atSioatnouS, Wulliiicliin, Revelstoke and at Kamloops, but failed lo say a word about the celebration
at Chase. Aud the Sentinel told of the celebration here, but stated that
Salmon Arm won the baseball game.
Chase thanks her Salmon Arm friends for the way they turned
out to her celebration ou the Twenty-Fourth. Perhaps some day we'll
have a chance to go over there and let them entertain us. They are a
good bunch of sports and pleasant neighbors.

Supreme Secretary of Caribou Brotherhood Giving Personal Attention to New Lodge.
Supreme Secretary H. Koelkenbeck
of the Caribou Brotherhood is in Chase.
He will make his headquaters here until after the new lobge is organized,
which he says will probably be about
the first of July. Among those who
have alreaey signed up as charter members of the Caribou Brotherhood from
Chase are:
Dr. Walter Seatchard, A. S. Farris,
C. W. Cameron, John Haldane, Joe
Johnston, John Brown, W. H. Bohan-
Mr. Koelkenbeck has received a sample of the new regalia which have just
come from the manufacturers hands.
He says they are a little the swellest
thing he has yet seen in the line of
lodge regalia.
Chase lodge will be the first one organized, but others will follow closely.
Vancouver is about ready to organize
and others will be ready in the near
One of the principal objects of the
Caribou Brotherhood is to perpetuate
the history of the development of British Columbia. The supreme historian
of the order is James Teit of Spences
Bridge. He has also recently been appointed Dominion Ethnologist and is
regarded as a high authority on that
subject. He is the author of a number
of works on ethnology and has been engaged in ethnological research for the
leading museums of Canada and the
United States for many years past.
Many oldtimers in this section of the
country are taking an active interest in
the organization of the lodge. They
are bringing into the records many an
entertaining, yet half-forgotten story of
the thrilling days of the Cariboo Road
and the rush to the Barkerville gold
Clean Up!
Notice is hereby given that all premises must be immediately cleaned up,
and all refuse destroyed, buried, or removed from the town. Those who do
not know where to deposit their refuse
can have it done by applying to Mr.
McLean, who will remove the same for
a reasonable fee, the said fee to be paid
by the householder. All closets must
have lids fixed to the seats which will
prevent the entrance of flies, and the
lids must he closed when the closet is
not in use. The pits must also be so
protected that flies, cannot gain an entrance. No refuse must be thrown in
the streets nor alleys.

��� S SEVERAL hours later Howland
| ��^^) crawled from bis bed and
BHBSl bathed bla head lu cold wt-
laeaa] ter. After that be felt better,
dressed bimself aud went below.
Ii was rather witb a sense of disappointment than pleasure that be learn,
ed tbe work train was to leave for Le
Paa late tbat night Instead of the next
day. After a quiet hour's rest tn his
room, however, hla old enthusiasm relumed to bim. He found bimself feverishly anxious to reach Le Pas and
the big camp on tbe Wekuako. Crois-
Bet's warning for bim to turn back Into
tbe south Instead of deterring him
urged bim on. He was born a fighter.
It was by fighting tbat be bad forced
bis way round by round up tbe ladder
of success. And now tbe fact that bis
life was in danger, that some mysterious peril awaited him in tbe deptha of
the wilderness, but added a new and
thrilling fascination to tbe tremendous
task which waa ahead of him. He wondered If this eanie peril bad beset
Gregson and Thome and If It was the
cause of their failure, of their anxiety
to return to civilization. He assured
himself that he would know when be
met tbem at Le Pas. He would discover more when be became a part of
the camp on the Wekuako���tbat Is, If
the half breed's warning held any significance at all, and be believed that it
did. Anyway, be would prepare for
developments. So he went to a gun-
sbop, bought a long barreled six shooter nnd a bolster and added to It a bunting knife like that he bad seen carried
by Croisset.
It was near midnight wben be boarded the work train, and dawn was Just
beginning to break over tbe wilderness
when It stopped at Etomaml, from
which point he was to travel by band-
car over tbe sixty miles of new road
tbnt bad been constructed as far north
as Le Pas. For three days tbe car bad
been waiting for tbe new chief of tbe
road, but neither Gregson nor Thorne
was with It
"Mr. Gregson is waiting for you at
Le Pas," said one of the men who had
tome with It.   "Thome Is at Wekusko."
For tbe first time In bis life Howland now plunged Into tbe heart of
the wilderness Everywhere lay white
winter. Tbe rocks, the trees and the
grent ridges, which In thla north country are called mountains, were covered with fodr feet of snow, and on tt
the sun shone with dazzling hrilllancy
The short northern day waa nearln.
an ena wnpn once more they saw the
broiid Saskatchewan twisting through
II plain below them, aud on its southern shore the few log buildings of Le
Pas beinraed in on three sides by tbe
blnck forests of balsam and spruce.
Lights wore burning In the cabins and
in the Hudson Hay post's store when
tbe car was brought to a halt bnlf a
hundred puces from a squat, log built
structure, whli'h was more brilliantly
illuminated than any of the others.
"That's the hotel," Bald one of the
men.   "Gregson's there."
A tail, fur clad llgure hurried forth
to meet Howland as be walked briskly across tbe open. It was Gregson.
As the two men gripped hnnds the
young engineer stared at the other In
astonishment. This was not the Gregson he bad known in tbe Chicago office���round fared, full of life, aa active
es a cricket.
"Never so glnd to see any one In my
life, Howland!" he cried, shaking tbe
other's band again aud again. "Another month and I'd be dead. Isn't
this a b- of a country?"
"I'm falling more In love with It at
every breath, Gregson. What's tbe
matter?   Have you been sick?"
"Sick? Ves, sick of the Job! If tbe
old man hadn't sent us relief Thorne
and I would bnre thrown up tbe
whole thing In another four weeks.
III warrant you'll get your everlasting
fill of log shanties and half breeds
and moose meat and this Infernal
snow nnd ice before spring comes.
But I don't want to discourage you."
"Can't discourage me." laughed
Howland cheerfully. "You know I
never cared much for theaters and
girls," he added slyly, giving Gregson
a good natured nudge. "How about
'em up here?"
"Nothing���not a cursed thing." Suddenly his eyes lighted up. "By George,
Howland, but 1 did see the prettiest
girl I ever laid my eyes on todayl
I'd give a box of pure Hnvanas���and
we haven't had one for a month���If I
could know who she Is!"
"A tall girl, with a fur bat and
muff?" queried Howland eagerly.
"Nothing of the sort She was a
typical northerner If there ever was
one���Btralght as a birch, dressed In fur
cap and coat, short caribou skin skirt
and moccasins, nnd with a braid hanging down her back ns long as my arm.
Lord, but she was pretty!"
"Isn't there a girl somewhere up
around) our  camp   named   Meleese?"
asked Howland casually.
"Never beard of Mr," Mid Gregson.,
"Or a man named Crolsaetr
"Never beard nf Mm."
"Tbe dance, but you're Interesting,"
laughed tbe young engineer, anltfing at
tbe odors of cooking supper. "I'm as
hungry aa a bear?'
From outslite t her. cam. the .harp
cracking of a aiedge driver's whip and
Gregson went tn one of the small windows looking nut upon the clearing. In
another Instant he sprang toward the
door, crying out to Howland.
"By tbe god of love, then ab. Is, old
man! Quick. If you want to get a
glimpse of ber!"
He (lung th. door open, and Howland hurried to bis side. There came
another crack of the whip, a loud
shout aud a sledge drawn by six dog.
sped past tbem into the gathering
gloom of the early ulglit.
From Howland'a lips, too. there'fell
a sudden cry, for one of tbe two faces
that were turned toward him for an
Instant waa that ot Croisset and the
other-white and staring as be had
seen It that Brat night In Prince Albert���waa the face of tbe beautiful girl
who had lured bim into tbe ambush on
the Great North trail!
For a moment after tbe swift pusa
Ing of the aledge It was on 11> viand's
lips to Bbout Crolsset's name. As he
thrust Gregson aside and leaped out
Into the nlgbt he waa Impelled witb a
desire to give chase. It waa Gregson
who recalled bim to his senses.
"1 thought you dldu't care for tbea
ters���and girls, Howland!" be exclaim
ed banterlngly. "A pretty face affects
you a little differently up here, eh?"
Howland Interrupted bim sharply.
"Hid you ever see either of them
before. Gregson?"
"Never until today. But there's hope,
old man. Surely we can find aome one
In tbe place who knows tbem. Would
not It be Jolly good fun If Jack Howland. Esq., who baa never been Interested In theaters and girls, should
come up Into these God forsaken regions and develop a case of love at
first Bight? If I had only seen her
"Shut up!" growled Howland. "Let's
go In to supper."
"Good. And I move tbat we Investigate these people while we are smoking our after supper cigars, it will
pass our time away at least."
"Your taste Is good, Gregson," said
Howland. recovering bis good humor
as tbey seated themselves at one of tbe
rough board tables In tbe dining room.
Inwardly be was convinced It would
be best to keep to bimself the Incidents
of tbe past two dnya and nights. "It
was a beautiful face."
"And the eyes!" added Gregson, his
own gleaming with enthusiasm. "She
looked at me squarely tbis afternoon
wben sbe and that dark fellow passed
and I swear they're the most beautiful
eyes 1 ever saw.   And her, hair"���
"Do you think that she knew you?"
asked Howland quietly.
Gregson bunched his shoulders.
"How tbe. deuce could she know,
'Then why did she look at you so
���squarely?" Trying to flirt do yon suppose?"

"By thunder, no. she wasn't flirting!"
he exclaimed. "I'd stake my life on
that A man never got a clearer, more
sinless look than sbe gave me, and

at me! I didn'i see ber again after
tbat but the dark fellow was in here
half of the afternoon, and now that I
come to think of It be did Bbow some
Interest In me.   Why do you ask?"
"Just curiosity," replied Howland.
"I don't like flirts."
"Neither do I," said Gregson musingly.
It was not until they were about to
leave tbe table that flowland's eyes ac*
cidentully fell on Gregson's right hand.
He gave nn exclamation of astonishment wben he saw that the little flnger
was missing. Gregson Jerked tbe band
to his side.
"A little accident." be explained.
"You'll meet 'em up here, Howland."
Before be could move tbe young engineer bad caught his arm and was
looking closely at the hand.
"A curious wound," be remarked
without looking up. "Funny I didn't
notice It before. Your Ongcr was cut
off lengthwise, and here's the scar running halfway to your wrist How did
yon do It?"
He dropped tbe band In time to aee
a nervous flush in the other's face.
"Why-er-fact is. Howland, It waa
shot off several months ago���In an accident, of course." He hurried through
the door.
As they passed from tbe dining room
Into tbat part of the inn wbicb was
half bar and balf lounging room, already filled witb smoke and a dozen
or so picturesque citizens of Le Pas,
the rough Jowled proprietor of the
place motioned to Howland and held
out a letter.
"This came while you waa at supper, Mr. Howland.'" he explained.
There was no name at tbe bottom of
what he read. It was not necessary,
for a glance bad told bim that the
writing was that of the girl whose face
be bad seen again that nlgbt:
"Forgive me for what I have done," the
note ran. "Relieve me now. Tour life is
In danger, and you must go back to Etomaml tomorrow. If you go to the Wekusko camp you -.vlll not live to come
"The devil!" be exclaimed.
"What's tbnt?" asked Gregson, edging around him curiously.
Howland crushed tbe note In bis band
and thrust It Into one of bis pockets.
"A Utile private affair," be laughed.
"Come. Gregson. let's see what we can

rapturously. "Only sbe couldn't talk.
Two or three times sbe wrote things

"Couldn't talk!" repeated Gregson
as tbe two men walked leisurely back
to the boarding bouse. "What the

Howland went to bis room, but tt
was not to sleep. H. waa satisfied
that a mysterious peril of aome kind
awaited bim at tbe camp on the Wekusko, but be gave up trying to fathom the reason for thla peril, accepting
in his businesslike way the fact that It
did exist and that In a short time It
would probably explain itself. Tbe
one puzzling factor which he could
not drive out of bis thoughts was the
girl.   Her sweet fare haunted him.
He went to bed. but It was a long
time before be fell asleep. It seemed
to. him that he had scarcely closed bis
eyes wben a pounding on tbe door

early light of dawn creeping through
the narrow window of his room. A

Next Se'tion of Railway Board to be Held on June 18th
When a General Investigation of Freight Ratei
in the West Will Take Place.
Ottawa.���The next session of the
railway board tu be held on June 18,
Will be a big day tor the west. On
tbat day the general Inquiry into
freight rates weat of Port Arthur will
be proceeded wit1* aa will the re-hear-
Ing of the Reglna rates case.
In both Instances prima facia caiea
bave been established against tbe
railways and It will be up to them Id
Indicate what line they are going ti
take by way of defence.
Both cases    Involve    the    serious
Charge   of   discrimination.     In    the
general freight tariff Inquiry the a1
legation   is  that   there  Is  discrimination against Western Canada and In
favor of the east.      In   the   Reglna
ease the allegation Is tbat the rail-
ways still discriminate   against   Reglna  Jobbers  tn  favor of  Winnipeg
jobbers In the matter of rates on ten
���lasses of goods carried.
]     The  postponement of the  general
inquiry by the railway board when It
met on Monday waa due to the Illness
���f B. Beatty, the chief counsel ot thi
1 C.P.R., who Is In an hospital and may
| have to go south, and to the fact that
. other counsellor the railways stated
that they had not yet bad an opportunity to fully   acquaint   themselves
With the Intricate question ot rates in
i Tolved.
|    the Reglna case was proceeded with
at some length by M. K. Cowan, K.
i C., counsel for the Reglna Hoard of
Trade, who submitted figures to show
j tnat the order ot the board  Issued
tome months ago had not been fully
eomplled with by the railways, and
: that serious  discrimination  still  ex-
; tots.     He examined one witness, Mr
Bmlth, of the Reglna Board of Trade,
I Who maintained that Winnipeg still
, had the big end of tbe rate sltuatiou
because the order of the board ha1"
not been complied with by the railways. The net result of the proc
Ings In connection with the Reglna
complaint was tbat the railways did
not commit themselves as lo whether
they rlnini to have removed the dls-
crimination or not.
Mr. Phlppen, however, quoted BR
'����� lo show Ihnt they had reduced
rates considerably and that thi'
per ten mile generally was low-
than before.
Assistant Chairman Scott said that
board would certainly go weat. It
was the desire of various western
Boards of Trade that there should be
sittings in the west, and the board
would be governed In arranging Its
sessions by the advice of the coun-
for the Dominion government,
'estern sittings would not be necess-
���, however, for the present, and
i next move would be on the part
the railways, who had been asked
Justify the er'-tlng rates In tho
-���t. He remarked that the board
does not observe the legal holidays,
but will work practically all the sum
mer months.
Mr. Scott then suggested that the
hearing go over until June 18. He
i expressed the hope that on that date
the railways would be preparing to tn-
'dlcate the line they will follow it'
regard to their defence.
i The renewed application of the Reglna Board of Trade was then taken
up. P. H. Chrysler, counsel for the
Canadian Pacific railway, said tbat
I practically no notice had been given
and counsel for the railways would
'need to be Instructed. Then it waa
desirable that tho railways should
know Just what thla new complain:

Mr. Samuels, bad been made with the

General Tourist Agent Benjamin Visits Chase
and Decides to Exploit Wonders of
the Shuswap Lakes.
Chase will be on the new tourist map
of the Canadian Pacific railway. The
beauties of the Shuswap and Adams
lake districts art to be exploited in Europe and the east.
Mr. C. E. Benjamin, [General Tourist
Agent of the C. P. R., was in Chase
Tuesday and Wednesday. He made a
trip up the littie Shnswap lake as the
_uest of Cenera! Manager Sawyer of |
the Adams River Lumber Company in
the launch, Tillicum. Mr. Benjamin j
was' greatly! impressed with the wonder- j
ful scenery in this vicinity. He said it
would be a shame to allow the scenic
advnntugesof this sectiou to remain unheralded any longer. And at that he
saw only u trifling part of the marvelous scenery of the Shuswap.
Doubtless it was the long sandy beach
at Chase that impressed him as much
as anything. That beach will accommodate hundreds of bathers; the water
is find; and the shores are beautiful.
And fhe ride up the lake in the morning
sunlight certainly must have left a pleasant memory in the mind of the tourist
agent' ,    ..,.
Anvhow, Mr. Benjamin arranged with
the management of the Underwood hotel
for the accommodation of a number his
tourist trains here this summer. Prominent among these excursions is the Elk's
special which is due here in August.
Thejarrangement contemplates the stopping of the special for forty minutesjfor
lunch at the Underwood.
Mr. Benjamin did not see many of
the scenic wonders of the Chase district, but he was told of many of them.
He would have been more surprised
than ever had he seen those two magnificent waterfalls of Chase creek but
a few moments walk from the station.
He would have opened his eyes in wonderment could he have visited that
glorious Celista country and gazed in
silent awe at God's scenic masterpieces. He would have gone into raptures of delight to have known that
from Chase on the C. P. R. his tourists
might reach, by easy stages of boat
and portage, the greatest big game
country of North America.
But these and other facts of interest
will be presented to Mr. Benjamin by
the Chase Board of Trade. The Tourist
department of the C. P. R. will be
plentifully supplied with photographs
and interesting data concerning the
Chase district.
