&Q.OO Per Year
Catching Them Everywhere in the
Vicinity of Chase During the
Past Several Days.
The Ashing season may be said to be
just fairly opened in this vicinity.
That is, the fish are now biting anywhere and everywhere and at anything
and everything. Five big strings of fish
were brought through town Monday
evening during the same hour. Questioning brought out the fact that they
were caught from Ave different places
���on lake, river and creek.
Phil Delaney brought in a beautiful
string of rainbow and silver trout from
the big bend of the Thompson river just
a half mile from the Underwood hotel.
He used a trolling line from the shore.
Young Loffmark and a couple of
other kids went down on Chase creek
near the Shuswap avenue bridge after
school and caught several small brook
trout and one good-sized rainbow trout.
They cut poles from the trees and
used common hooks, with angle worms
as bait. Two bachelors who occupy a
summer cottage at the lake caught
some whopping big steelheads from
the end of a little dock they have
rigged up in front of their camp.
Another party of three young fel-
Iowb were fishing off the end of the
Government dock. They said they quit
simply because their arms got tired
hauling 'em in. And it certainly looked that way for they had all the three
of them could carry. They were casting with small flys. H. L. McLean,
Murry Balmer and Chas. McLaughlin
and their party came in from the little
river in a launch. They had the biggest string of any and claim that fish
are biting at the little river aa good as
they ever did���and that sure is going
some. There have been aome mighty
big fish caught at the little river, but
this season promises to break all previous reco-ds for quantity ofjoateh and

Sergeant Louis Cumming is entitled
to a great deal of credit for the manner in which he brought his command
through the arduous duties of the encampment. None of them seem the
worse for wear, despite the fact that
they had to begin scraping their horses'
tails at five o'clock each morning.
Lieutenant Morris paid Chase troop
a very high compliment. He stated
that our boys made the best appearance
on drill and parades of any of the troops.
Also he said that Chase furnished a
great many winners of athletic events,

Present To The West.
The Panama Canal, costing the United
StateB (400,000,000, will be ready next
year. What will be the effect of its
opening on Canadian commerce? The
supremacy of Canada's natural strategic
position, the probable changes in the
world's great trade routes, the resultant effect on Canadian commerce, and
the facilities which Canada must provide
to meet the new situation. Stated in a
line, the United States is really presenting Western Canada with an investment of $400,000,000 which will aid
materially in its upbuilding and the expansion of its commerce.���Maclean's
Magazine, June, 1912. When the canal
is opened the commerce between the
provinces of British Columbia and Alberta, and possibly western Saskatchewan and the European continent, will
no longer be water and rail across the
continent, but will be almost exclusively
water-borne. By providing cheap
means of transportation for Alberta's
cattle and grain and British Columbia's
lumber, salmon, and fruit to Europe,
the canal will improve the position of
every rancher, farmer, lumbermen,
fruit grower and fish-canning establishment within a thousand miles of any
exporting center on the Pacific Coast.
The three prairie provinces produced
upwards of three hundred million bushels of grain last year, and its appears
safe to predict, says Sir Donald Mann,
who has made a study of the situation
in its relation to the Panama route, that
in the not distant future they will produce a thousand million bushels a year.
James B. Goodwin, the financial editor
of the Hearst newpaper syndicate,
thinks by the time the canal is opened
Western Canada ought to have enough
wheat to ship out of Vancouver to
make it necessary for at least one
20,000 ton grain vessel to sail from
that port every day in the year.���Calgary Herald.

especially In the May future In that
market, while Minneapolis and Dp-
luth have to a large extent shown indifference to the damage reports.
The , present condition of and the
prospects tor the outcome ot the United States winter wheat crop are of
very great Importance in their bearing on prices of wheat for the balance of the present orop year. Thar*
Is unfortunately no doubt now that
an unusually large percentage of tha
orop sown in tbe states of Illinois,
Missouri, Indiana and Ohio has been
or la being plowed up, and will be
planted with oats and corn. In tha
further west states, Nebraska, Kansas, and Oklahoma there Is also
some damage, but probably not more
than usual, but over the whole winter wheat area the orop experts are
beginning to estimate the acreage to
be plowed up at 4,000,000 acres. As
the winter wheat area planted last
fall was estimated to he 2,000,000
acres less than It was the previous
year, It can be Imagined that the production of winter wheat In the United States In 1912 will be the smallest
In recent years, for besides the acreage actually abandoned, there Is sure
to be a great dea'. left to grow that
Is so much winter killed as to give
only a small yield. A low condition
of the crop In April suggests further
deterioration In May and June, for as
a friend of ours puts It, "the history
of other damage years indicates that
a orop which starts with trouble will
continue In trouble." Outside of
this serious crop damage there la
less clear and definite evidence of a
bullish situation, than there waa
some weeks ago, because the statist
leal position has continued to grow
more bearish. In the United StateB
the visible supply, although It had a
decrease of 1,807,000 bus, last week,
still stands as high as 47,960,000 bus.,
compared with about 33,409,000 bus.
last year. The quantity on ocean
passage has been Increasing steadily,
and la now 54,024,000 bus. against
59,016,000 bus. a year ago. The
European visible supply laat week Increased 1,684,000 bus., against a decrease of 1,200,000 bus. same week
last year, and It now stands at 90,-
124,000 bus., against 112,100,000 bus.
last year, a difference of 21,976,000
bus. short of last year's quantity,
while only four weeks ago the shortage compared with same date last
year was 35,600,000 bus. These statistics don't seem to favor the idea of
scarcity of wheat or higher prices
for it,, especially as prices at present
are from 10c to 22o higher than they
were a year ago. Nevertheless
there (s the sentiment that the situation Is bullish. The visible supply
In the United States is decreasing
faster than it did a year ago, and
there is a well-known shortage In
Russia, Argentine, and Australia,
which will prevent In the next three
months such large weekly world's
shipments as took place a year ago.
The conditions surrounding the
growing crops other than the United
States winter wheat, are generally
favorable. At the present time
every country In Europe can give
fair account of Its growing cron.

the C. P. R. hotel at Banff.

Visitors to Chase should not fail to
visit the Chase Zoological Gardens on

price of admission, which ia nothing.
Manager Sydney Jellette has been to a
great deal of expense and trouble in
gathering together his collection of animals, Dennis Sanders has been engaged as trainer. He has had a great

swamps. Professor Jack Anderson is

Further north the season Is somewhat later. The subsoil Is well supplied with moisture this year and
there Is nothing to mar a fair prospect at present.

ams Lake, less than an hours' ride
from Chase, is noted for its big game
hunting. Bear, dear and cariboo are
easily secured in that section. The
country is absolutely wild; the forests
are as near virgin aa anything can be in
this day and age. Also, the lake
abounds with big fish. The mightest liar
in the world can make good his wildest
flights of fancy at Adams lake.
Firemen Sprinkle.
The Chase Fire Department is always
doing something to endear it to the
hearts of the people.
During the hot weather the boys get
out and turn on the hose, sprinkling the
streets seven, times better than any
water wagon ever dared to do it.

Return of the Robin.
A correspondent of "Country Life,"
relates an interesting experience with
a robin redbreast. In the early part
of the autumn the bird used to oome
into the dining-room at breakfast and
lunch, and would come on to the table
and help himself or take crumbs from
my hand. He suddenly ceased to
come, and did not put in an appear-
Mice for five weeks. One Sunday he
returned, and came to the window
asking to be let in, and he seemed
t<> be even more tame, if possible,
than he was before. One naturally
wonders, adds the correspondent, why
he waa away for five weeks, and it
certainly argues memory and intelligence on his part that after so long
a time he should have come back and
made himself completely at home.
For boating and bathing, the Little
Shuswap lake here at Chase is unexcelled. The beach is long, sandy and
warm. No finer spot could be chosen
for the location of a summer hotel.
Even at this early season, there are
summer residents of the lake shore who R

"Dear Harry: Is there any plaee
around Chase where one could camp?
Mrs. and the children are anxious to go
camping somewhere when the school
closes at the end of this month. I
don't know of any place near Kamloops
without being smothered in dust. It
struck me that Chase might be a good
place. I have only seen it from the
train, and may be wrong, but it looks
to me to be alright. I don't suppose
they would find any difficulty in getting all the milk and eggs they would
be in want of."
Is there any good camping ground in
the vicinity of Chase? Well, we wonder
if there isn't. All kinds of it, old boy.
Come on over and bring the wife and
kiddies. Milk, fresh milk, and eggs
and butter? Well just take a look at
that Chase ranch. And that Shaw
ranch. And that Coburn ranch. Then
ask yourself what's the answer. Why,
one of the cows had three calves the
other day and she is giving enough
milk for them and a half doien kids besides.
You are coming to the right place to

Mr. C. E. Benjamin, general tourist
agent of the C. P. R. was here several
days ago, arranging for the accommodation of a number of excursion
trains at this point this summer.
Among them will be the Elk's special,

hotel to be ready to feed upwards of
two hundred people at that time,

Origin of "Fairy Rings."
Lecturing on "Mushrooms and Toadstools" before the Selborne Society in
London, Mr. Som' rviile Hastings said
that the "fairy rings" so often seen
in grass fields were causd by a fungus, known as the "fairy ring" fundus. Visible mushrooms or toadstools,
he said, are only the fruit of fungus
plants underground. The "fairy ring"
fungus starts growing in a bunch, and
the first year the fruit comes up all in
a bunch. The second year the plant
has exhausted the nourishment in the
soil in that spot and spreads outward,
and the fruit comes up in a small
ring. Each year the ring grows larger,
and in the autumn, when there aro
no mushrooms, a dark ring is seen.
Of the 6,000 British species of mushrooms and toadstools, Mr. Hastings
said, only about a doien are known
to be really poisonous.

Not By George.
The Coquitlam Star has a pleasant
way of saying things. It publiahed the
following about The Tribune after our
first issue. It is all right only they
were wrong about George Chase drawing those cartoons. Howard Smith is
the man. The only kind of a picture
that George can make is on the face of
a check. He can do that in five or six
figures they say:
"Not being able to get their power in
time to print the first edition of the
Chase Tribune, a wood-sawing machine
was backed up to the rear window of
the plant and forthwith the paper was
produced. Such versatility as was displayed on this occasion certainly forebodes a live wire in journalism where
above every other profession the word
'can't' must be eliminated from the
vocabulary. This 'wood-sawing machine' edition certainly made good, aB
was to be expected, and is the kind of
a breezy, newsy publication that finds
its readers eagerly looking forward to
the day of publication. The clever cartoons drawn by G. G. Chase are alone
worth the price of the paper and are but
one of its interesting features. The
Star welcomes the Tribune to the journalistic field."

the Revelstoke Mail-Herald of May 14th

The Tribune is preparing a special edition for ita readers; an
illustrated edition that will advertise the resources and advantages of
the Shuswap and Adams Lake districts as they have never before
been advertised. The Special Editi :n will be ready about AugUBt 1.
It will be a thing of beauty aud a joy forever.
Cliase has more to advertise than many towns. The scenic splendors of her lakes and rivers, her hills and valleys,. are unsurpassed.
The splendid opportunities for fishing, hunting, boating, bathing and
other outdoor sports are not to be equaled anywhere in the inland empire. But the world at large knows but little of our advantages in this
line. Neither do thoBe on the outside know much of our wonderful
wealth of timber; of our magnificent agricultural resourses; or of our
rema-kalile climate.
Tho Special Edition of The Chase Tribune will be distributed extensively.in Canada, England and the United States. It will find its
way into thousands of homos aud will spread the glad tidings of grant
joy from Halifax to Breakfast, as it were. We have arranged for the
distribution of 5000 copies In addition to thoBe that will be sent out by
interested parties.
There is no butter way to lot the folks in the old home town know
what sort of a place you are tied up to than to onter their names for
copies of this Special Edition. You will find it a modest, yet effective
way of letting jour friends know how you yourself have prospered here
in this new land of promise.
Howard Smith the artist has agreed to assist us with his talent
in the gelling Up of this Special Edition. He litiB a new idea propagat-
ing in his think tank. What we know of it leads us to the belief that
it will put all his formerJeffortB in the shade. If you aro a resident of
theSlm-wap or Adams Lake districts you may look forward to Beeing
your picture in the paper. Old and young, fat and lean, rich and poor,
good looking and homely- they'll all be in the Special Edition. There
will be a descriptive writeup to go with the picturos. Yea, verily, the
Special Edition of The Cliase Tribune will lie an event, an epoch.
"New tipple at Hillcrest mines," is the way it read in the Fernie
Free Press. We plunged into the article, thinking to learn the mys-
teries of some new summer drink. But that kind of a tipple is not a
drink and we'll be darned if we know just what the blamed thing is,
The article goes on to imply that a "tipple" is used in the operntion.of
a coal mine. Maybe it is a looking-gltiBB for the story Btntes that "it
reflects great credit upon all concerned in the erection of the tipple."
They were all good tipplers it seems.
The New Addition Has
Been Platted
Bench Addition to Chase
\17HEN the people of Chase go
looking for real estate snaps
they will find the best one right
here at home. The BENCH ADDITION has been platted to fill an
trident need. The lots are large,

is right, and already the demand is
brisk. The offer is made to Chase
people first and it is more than
probable that all the lots will be
picked up right here at home. It

"Fishing? You say that you have
come out to B. C. to get some good
Ashing and you want to know where to
find a good place? Well I can tell you.
You are coming to a town called Chase.
It is only quite a new town, but it is in
one of the very best districts in B. C.
for sport of all kinds. Good hunting
and excellent fishing, and one of the
prettiest places you have ever seen.
At present the town is only a very small
one, but there is no doubt but that it
will soon be a large place. The whole
town is very much up to date, and the
hotel is one of the best, if not the best
in the interior. You just stop there for
a time and you will want to leave there
in a hurry. Dick Underwood, of the
Underwood Hotel, is one of the very
best and will see that you get everything you want either in the fishing or
hunting line, to say nothing of the things
he can, and does offer to you in the
way of comfort. He knows the ropes
well, and he has got the country to
show that can hardly be beaten."
The above was a conversation I overheard in the train and it made me smile.
So far as it went, I was well aware
that it was perfectly true, but I also
knew that the speaker only was aware
of quite a small part of the good points
of the district. He only mentioned
Shuswap Lake, and spoke about it as if
it was the only fishing place in the
world in which trout could be caught.
Certainly it is close to the town of
Chase; in fact, the town is on its shores,
but we of Chase look upon it as only
a very small part of what we can show.
I could have told the speakers that we
have no less than nine lakes within an
hour's drive from the town, in which
the fishing is quite as good or even better than Shuswap Lake, and there are
any amount of creeks and rivers in
which most excellent fishing can be had.
There are also plenty of motor boats to
be had; including the well known 'Old
Reliable," owned by the well known
and equally reliable old-timer Jack
Haldane, perhaps better known as
"Commodore Haldane," who can tell
you everything about every place in
the district and teach you everything
there is worth knowing about fishing or
hunting, and can keep you interested
for as long as you like with old-timer
stories, and he speaks the truth tool
The creeks abound in brook trout and
the rivers give good fishing of all sorts,
including rainbow,  silver,  grey,   and
speckled trouts. It is a dangerous thing
to mention the sizes of fish, but I am
not taking a fisherman's license when
I say that it is not at all uncommon to
catch rainbow trout in this district
weighing five and six pounds and no
great amount of surprise is shown when
afi f teen pound one is brought in. Two of
my sons went out fishing one day and
caught forty-seven rainbow trout most
of them weighing between five and six
pounds. Laat week one of these same
boys went out and caught six rainbow
trout, the smallest weighing ten pounds,
and another boy from the town caught

the best place for the time of the year
and also tell him what would be the
best flies or the best bait to use, or
would put him on to the best way of obtaining this information. He would also advise him which was the best place
to go fpr size or quantity according to
the desires of the fisherman. Tackle,
flies and bait can easily be obtained in
the town.

H. 0. POY, Proprietor
AT the Empire Day celebration in
Chase on the 24th of May there
occured a meeting of two men who have
had much to do with the development of
this olintry and i'ne'making of its history; two men hose lifelines have been
twined together and interwoven more
or less for the past half century. They
were D. G. Macpherson of Chase and
William Fortune of Kamloops.
As they met, grasped hands and looked each other straight in the eye with
that true unfaltering gaze of honest
friendship, there seemed to be but one
thing lacking to make the picture a
complete one. Only those who were
well acquainted with the life history of
those two men could have guessed what
was missing, could have followed their
thoughts as they went back to the old
days. They were thinking of that other
Old Timer, that other pioneer of these
parts, Whitfield Chase. His presence
was lacking to make the trinity complete. Whitfield Chase has gone ahead
to blaze the trail into another new
country. The other old boys will find
him there when they arrive. They will
go on over the Divide some day, but not
too soon we hope.
Howard Smith the artist has given us
two very lifelike pictures of these
staunch old men. He has put a great
deal of their history in the lines of their
faces. Instinctively we seem to know
that here before us are a couple of
God's noblemen. It is easy to surmise
that these men have met many hardships; that they have faced them square
ly and steadfastly and conquered them
���most always.
William Fortune came to Kamloops in
the early Sixties.   He came  via.
Paul, Winnipeg; and Tete Daune C-inte- ���&��.��� fcold diggings.   But he lefltene of
and went to work for the Hudson's. Bay
Company when he arrived at Kamloops.
Today he is reckoned one of the wealthiest men in this section of the country.
And his counsel and advice are held an
high esteem by his business associates.
He is well known all up and down the
Shuswap lakes. He built and captained
the first steamer to. ply these waters,
the Lady Dufferhu For many years
Captain Fortune and! his steamer called
in at Shuswap and Chase, bringing
supplies and carrying the produce of the
ranches to the outside markets.
D. G. Macpherson was one of the
seekers after the Golden Fleece. He
followed the rainbow into the famous
old Caribou gold diggings. There he
met with Withfiel- Chase who waa a
carpenter and had stampeded into the
diggings leaving hts tool chest to be
brought in later. Macpherson brought
the tool chest. He had a pack train.
Those were stirring timeB. Prices
were high and every man had to hustle
for himself or get left. But some of the
friendships made there in the Caribou
have never waned.
Whitfield Chase and D. G. Macpherson met' again in Kamloops along in
1866, when Mr. Macpherson was on his
home with' dim. Mr. Ma-pfaerson
couldn't quite.o that. The lust for the
sight of the Golden Fleece was still
strong upon him and he went ont to the
his horses at the Chase ranch: to be
eared for. In 1870 he came back to
Chase himself. Since that time he has
been a resident of this town, Fotrmany
years he was in partnership with Whitfield Chase in the operation of the
ranch. Together they fought an. conquered the battles of Life. Theirs was
a friendship of the most unwavering
kind. They shared alike their pleasures
and sorrows.
When Mr. Macpherson and Mr. Fortune met in Chase on the Twenty-Fourth
it was to talk over many of the interesting incidents of the early days.
Some one spoke sf the first house in
Kamloops and of the memories which
still cling round it. Mr. Fortune; built
the house and Mr.. Macpherson was bis
goest there for one winter before he
moved to Chase.
There were very few white settlers in
this section of the country in the-early
days. Yet there were happy times intermingled with the hard knocks.
The Hudson's Bay company was the
ruling power in the land. Also they
controlled the available supply of intoxicants���almost. But the Hudson's
I'ay company had nothing to do with
the getting of the parson tight an that
way to the Big Bend country of the [ magnificant plum wine made by Mr.
Columbia river. There was another j Macpherson at the Chase ranch,
gold rush on to that section. But Mr. j Game was plentiful. The Indians
Chase had struck something better than I were in the habit of bringing in enough
a gold mine. He had settled down on | deer in the fall to last all winter. Old

An advertiser must know that he gets
his results in accordance with the skill
exercised in preparing his verbal displays. He must make people stop and
pause.   His copy has to stand out.
He must not only  make a show of

Newspaper space itself is only the
window, just as the showcase is but a
frame for merchandise pictures. A
window on a crowded street in the best
neighborhood, where prosperous persons
pass continually, is more desirable than
one in a cheap, sparsely settled
neighborhood. An advertisement in a
newspaper with the most readers and
the most prosprrous ones possesses a
great advantage over the seme copy in
a medium circulating among persons
who possess less means. It would be
foolish for a shop to build its windows
in the alleyway���and just as much so to
put its advertising into newspapers
