Tribune Equipment One
of Best In Province
for Printing of
The printing equipment of The Chase
Tribune ia one of the moat complete of
any to he found in the province of
British Columbia. That ia in the towns
that boast only of weekly newspapers.
Possibly the magnificent plant of Hon.
Price Ellison's Vernon News has it on
ua just a shade in the matter of com-
-pleteness. But as to perfection and
fullness of detail the plant of The
Tribune is certainly "there" in forty
different ways.
For the delectation of our brothers-
in-misery throughout the Province we
will give a brief description of the
plant as it stands.
The Tribune is printed on the latest
model Cranston drum cylinder press,
fitted with both table and screw distribution and speeded to 1600 an hour
with a capacity for 2000 impressions
per hour if so desired. The Cranston
is the best drum cylinder on the market
today. It handleB color work and halftones in the most approved manner.
A 12-inch Pelton water motor furnishes power for the operation of the
machinery. Water is secured from the
mains of the Adams River Lumber Co.
system which furnishes water for the
-towr. of Chan*. When the little water
motor is feeling right we have a couple
of horse power to spare.      '
There is a No. 2 New Style Gordon
jobber for the quick printing of all
commercial work, such as cards, hill
heads, letter heads, envelopes, dodgers,
dance tickets, etc.
We have a 30-inch Brown & Carver
paper and a 16-inch Paragon bench
cutter. Both of them are clean-cutting
We have an 18-inch Rossback perforator. And a No. 6 Perfection wire
stitcher with power attachment. Thus
we are prepared tft execute "promptly
all orders for check books, receipts,
orders, warrants, etc.
Our type equipment is great. We
have weight fonts of the famous Cheltenham Bold aeries from 14 to 60 point.
We have a aeries of Railroad Gothic
from 10 to 120 point; a series of Post
and a aeries of Post Condensed. We
have the Copperplate Gothic series; the
Old English series; the beautiful Bank
Script; and divers and sundry other job
faces too numerous to mention, but all
useful as well as ornamental. Our
newspaper dress is the dignified Century Expanded, while our head letter
ia the stately Herald Extra Condensed.
Brass dashes and the like we have in
ample quantities.
We have several hundred pounds of
leads and slugs, all cut on the labor-
saving system. We have metal furniture and wood furniture and a dandy
case of labor-saving reglets. Also we
have quotation quads for further orders and brass rule till the cows come
home. Lack of stone room is the bane
of most printers' existence. We have
two large stones in addition to two iron
imposing tables, giving room for all
eight pages of the paper and the making up of whatever job forma may fall
naturally to the week's work.
We are well supplied with chaaes and
quoins and column rules and galleys and
sticks and wood type and borders and
ornaments and-so-forth etcetera.
All this may be more or less unintelligible to the average lay reader. But
the wiBe printerman will readily realize
that it would be a hard matter to duplicate the plant and install it short of
$6000. The material mentioned above
comes from the American Type Founders Co., its Vancouver branch.
Fin Affinities.
The marriage of Miss Ina Matilla to
Mr. Axel Pantilla was solemnized at
Salmon Arm last Saturday evening.
Both the young people have been residents of Chase for some time. Their
many friends tendered them a welcoming dance at the Black Douglass hall
Saturday evening, and a picnic on Sunday. Both events were under the auspices of the Fnniah society of ChaHe.
The young couple will make their
future home here.

was held on Monday evening the flth.
inst, in the Chase Opera House. The
president, A. McConnell, occupied the
chair, and H, J. Haylock acted as secretary in in the absence of L. Cumming,
the regular secretary.
The chief business was the election of
officers for the ensuing year. Hon.
Richard McBride was made honorary
president, and Hon. Martin Burrell and
J. P. Shaw, M. P. P. honorary vice-
presidents. President McConnell was
nominated for re- election but declined
the honor, which fell to R. P. Bradley a
man capable of filling the position with
satisfaction to the members and credit
to himself.
L. Cumming was re-elected to fill the
office of secretary-treasurer. The
executive was then appointed as follows;
H. Brett, Duck Range; A. E. Fleming,

The retiring president responded to a
vote of thanks for the services with an
assurance that he would continue to
work as earnestly for the party and the
Adams River Saw Mill Will Be Hard to Find In
Running 12 Hours
Daily to Keep
Up Supply.
The big saw mill of the Adams River
Lumber Co. la working overtime these
days to keep up with the demand for
that elegant cedar, white pine and fir
lumber. Twelve hours constitutes a
dap's .shift now. And Superintendent
Walter Lammers la keeping the working force up to the full limit.
It ia stated that before very lung the
mill will be running two shifts.
John McGlvney, walking boss for the
company, has been up river for several
weeks past, superintending operations
at the river and lake camps. |Thc water

The Crotnbie has been raised, towed

clear of sand and water. Repairs are
being made on the old Iwat and she will
soon be lit for service again. The damage will amount to hut very little, The

responsibilities of office. Mr, Bradley,
the newly elected president, thanked
the members for the honor conferred on
him and intimated that he would do all
he could to serve their interests in the
position they had chosen him to fill.
After the enrolment of some new
members concluded the business of the
Vicinity of Chase and
Shuswap Lakes
This Year.
A plan will be presented to the next
meeting of the Board of Trade looking
to the complete extermination of the
genus mosquito in the vicinity of the
Shuswap lakes and Chase.
There is no more ideal spot in the
weBt for a summer resort than Chase-
barring the the mosquitoeB which make
their appearance during. the haying
And the mosquito will be barred in
this summer resort during the season
1912 ami forever thereafter.
The plan to be adopted by the Board
of Trade is very simple, but none the
less effective. It contemplates the purchase by the Hoard of a number of
small sprayers and a quantity of crude
petroleum. Every pool of stagnant
water and every swamp spot in the
near neighborhood of Chase will be
covered with a thin coating of oil. It
will be a mighty clever mosquito that
wiggles through the propagation process in the vicinity of Chase from this
time forth. Two or three men can
cover all the territory necessary in a
few day, spraying the crude oil as they
go. The oil is not at all harmful to
crops or cattle. Only a little of it is
necessary to prevent the wiggler from
becoming a mosquito with a stinger a
yard long. And Chase is such a lovely
place for a summer resort.
The extermination of the disease
laden mosquito has been accomplished
most thoroughly in the fever districts
of the south. Also, the entire Panama
canal zone has been ridded of the pests
by the simple process of drainage and
spraying with crude oil.
It has been determined that the mosquito very seldom gets over a mile
from the point of its propagation.
Hence it would seem that by spraying
the stagnant pools within a radius of
two miles of Chase the insects would
indeed be hard to find in the vicinity of
Chase this season.

Mr. F. E. Sine of Revelstoke spent
several days in Chase in the interests
of the Bowman Lumber Company. It
is rumored that the Bowman company
is contemplating the erection of a large
saw mill at this point.
Mr. Sine was accompanied by his
wife and two little boys. He insisted
that the visit was purely one of pleasure and recreation. They were guests
of Mr. and Mrs. Walter Lammer at a
boating party on Sunday, and of General Manager Sawyer on Monday, making a couple of trips up the lake. President A. McConnell of the Board of
Trade pointed out the advantages of
Chase as a commercial center from the
deck of one of H. L. McLean's rigs.
Mr. Sine is one of the big men of
the lumber business in the west. He
nas recently been connected with the
Dominion Saw Mills Company of Revelstoke. His visit here Saturday included
a general inspection of the mill site
property uuder lease by the Bowman
Lumber Company from the Chase estate. He issued orders for the burning
of all slashings on Company land.
The Bowman people own nearly ail
the standing timber in the close vicinity of Chase. The fact that they have
recently leased a valuable mill site here
would indicate that they contemplate
early activities.
New Fire Warden.
Mr. M. V. Allen, district Provincial
fire warden, came up from Vernon yesterday and looked after the details connected with getting his deputies started
on their summer jobs.
George Keyes has received the appointment as Provincial Fire Warden
for this district. He will spend the
greater part of the summer in the Adams lake country where timber cutting
operationa are in progress.
Mr. Keyes appointment is a good one
as he is thorough woodsman and well
acquainted with conditions in this part
of the country. He is known as a man
of action and his services to the Provincial government will no doubt prove
eminently satisfactory.

the celebration had been abandoned.

We hope the people of Celista have
the time of their lives at their celebration. And just to show that there is no
hard feeling, we'd go over there our-

Keeping Out Whiskey.
It was to protect the Indians from
whiskey dealers from the American
side of the border that the Northwest
Mounted Police eamc into being in
1874. So well did they succeed that
within a year Col. Macleod, who was
stationed in a district which now
forms the southwest corner ot Alberta,
reported that the whiskey trade had
been completely stopped in that part
of the country, and that drunken
riots were at an end.
His first blow at the liquor traffic
was the capture of a colored man
namod Bond, and some other Americans, who had a. trading post about
fifty miles from the colonel's headquarters. An Indians named "Three
Bulls" Informed the police that he
had bartered two of his horses for a
couple of gallons of whiskey. An officer, with ten men, accordingly sot
out, and rode down Bond and his associates after a forty mile chase, arresting the party, five in number,
and seizing two wagons containing
cases of whiskey and buffalo skins,
which had been received from the
Indians. Heavy fines were inflicted,
and the first step in protecting the
1 Indians from their worst enemies
was a great success.

They do me wrong who say I come no more
When oner I knock and fail to find you in;
For every day I stand outside your door,
And bid you wake and rise to fight and win.
Wail not for precious chances passed away,
Weep not for golden ages on the wane;
Each night I burn the records of the day,
At sunrise every soul is born again.
Laugh like a boy at splendors that have sped,
To vanished joys be blind and deaf and dumb;
My judgments seal the dead past with its dead,
But never bind a moment yet to come.
Though deep in mire wring not your hands and Weep,
I lend my arm to all who say: "I can."
No shamefaced outcast ever sank so deep,
But he might rise and be again a man.

has right here at Chase. Stand in the middle of the main street and
look either way, up or down, To the east is seen the calm and inviting
surface of Shuswap, in whose limpid depths are thousands upon thous
. ands of the gamest fish that swim. Ob those warm sandy beaches the
summer bather will soon disport himself and herself in multitude.
Around the new government dock small pleasure craft arc beginning
to gather. Later will come the big excursion boats, the bands will
play and everyone will feel young and joyful. Look to the west from
your point of vantage on the main thoroughfare. Take note of that
verdant valley and the hills of green in the background. In your fancy
tee the many orchards with their luscious burdens. See the south
fork of the Thompson, one of Cod's own rivers. Truly Chase is ideally
situated as a summer resort.
The persistent rumor of the coming of another saw mill, as big or
bigger than the one now here, is the sweetest of all music to those who
have the interest of Chase at heart. That another big mill is coming
seems almost a certainty; how soon it problematical. The Bowman
Lumber Company has extensive timber holdings in the immediate
vicinity of Chase, Either that firm or someone else is going to cut
that timber, and soon. The demand for lumber is too strong for the
owners of standing timber not to heed it wherever possible. The Ad-
ams River Lumber Company has enough timber of its own to keep its
present mill busy for the next several decades.
Purge out of every heart the lurking grudge. Give us grace and
strength to forbear nnd to preserve. Offenders, give ub the grace to
accept and forgive offenders, Forgetful ourselves, liolp us to bear
the forgetfulnesB of others. Hive us courage and gaiety and the quiet
mind. Spare us to our friends, soften us to our enemies. Bless us,
if it may be, in all our Innocent endeavors. If it may not, give us the
strength to encounter that which is to come, that we be brave in poril,
constant in tribulation, temperate in wrath, and in all changes in fortune and down to the gates of death, loyal and loving to one another,���

Ssme wise fellow once said that the only way to have a perfect

The first number of the Chase Tribune, the latest journalistic enterprise
in the interior, has come to hand. Its
well printed pages are filled with
brightly written matter, sparkling
with wit and humor in its proper place,
we are safe in saying that the Tribune will be a valuable medium for the
advancement of the district of Chase.
Merritt Herald.
We are receipt of the initial number
of "The Chase Tribune," the newspaper which has been started by the
Cnase Publishing Company to give
publicity to the attractions of Unit
town, and the Shuswap and Adams
lake districts. In its "Announcement
of Intentions," it is stated that tho
paper will be non partisan, but will
support the McBride government. The
first issue, from a typographical and
news point of view, is a credit to the
publishers, and the advertising patronage is a credit to the business men, -
Salmon Arm Observer.
We are in receipt of the initial copy
of the "Chase Tribune," the latest arrival on the scenes of journalistic
enterprises. Chase has grown and prospered so rapidly in the last few years
that the people felt that the time had
come to secure an organ of its own to
advertise the value of the district anb
to extrol the virtues of the magnifi-
cant Shuswap Lake country. The Tribune is a credit to Chase and its live
and up-to-date people. Well printed,
newsy bright and sparkling with real
wit and humor, the Tribune bids fair
to have a happy and prosperous career. Its versatile manager and editor
Mr. Bohannan is a newspaper man of
ability and energy and we can safely
say that from the world "Go" the
Tribune will be a valuable medium of
information on the many and varied'
opportunities.--Kamloops Standard.
Over in Chase, B. C, where public
opinion has been cluttering about in
tne amorphous stage for as much as
quite a while, The Chase Tribune has
opened a factory for the crystallization
of said public opinion into leaders, pars
and squibs. The first batch was sugared off on the 26th ult. nnd came to eye
in due course. The Tribune is readable
and typographically presentable. Judging from the initial copy it should bo a
financial triumph.
If there are any of our readers who
do not know where Chase is located or
how it got there they will be', intorr.

Being a new town.Chase is not yet
on the map. But, being a live and
growing town, Chase will positively
appear on the maps published henceforward and forever.
Never was town more ideally located
for commercial and residential purposes than Chaso. Situated at the lower end of Shuswap lake, it is the natural trade outlet for the Seymour Arm,
Shuswap Lake and Adams Lake sections From those regions are to be
drawn millions upon millions of feet of
spruce, fir, pine and cedar atimber. On
the main line of the Canadian Pacific
railroad, Chase is supplied with transportation facilities of a superior nature.
And there are more railroads yet to
come, if rumor may be replied upon.
Also, Chase is blessed with agricultural
resources second to none in the West.
The broad, fertile acres lying between
Chase and Shuswap are capable of the
highest state of productiveness ever
attained by land in a tempernte zone.
Sooner or later that will be placed on
the market. And when it is there will
be an influx of settlers and investors to
Chase that will insure the future of the
town usj nothing else can. Every ten
acres of that land are capable of supporting a family and supporting them
in royal style. ���Pernio Free Press.

Willi apologlos to a wrtier
who was denied the privilege of
oontribullng lo the Chase Tribune, we venture the assertion
that gooil taste in man or woman is the Immediate jewel of Ihe
soul. In particular we never
grudge the time lo lake a second
look al any one who appreciates
Ihe surpassing excellence of
Chase as a place lo live in. Thai
person has taste.
Last year Hon. P. W. Aylmer,
who must be described rather
cumbrously as district engineee of
Dominion Public Works for the
interior of British Columbia, selected Chase as the most desirable
location for his head olllces. Mr.
Aylmer has many good and wise
deeds to his credit, and that act
is not the leasl ol them.
The district engineer has duties that .take him from the
southern boundary of Kootenay
and Vale to the headwaters of the
Eraser; he has spent fourteen
yoars uninterruptedly in the engineering service on British Columbia waters; if any one knows
the relative merits nf the inland
towns as suitable centres from
which lo administer ihe affairs of
his department, it is he. The ul
limate selection of Chase as th
centre tells its own story about
our town.
On the south bank of the
Thompson river, a few hundred
yards below Ihe point at which il
leaves the tittle Shuswap lake,
the Dominion government hold
land with several hundred feel ol
water frontage. It is here that
the olllces are situated. Here the
plans are drafted for Ihe various
and extensive improvements that
are continually being made in the
facilities   for   Ihe navigation   of
the lakes and rivers of Ihe interior of Ihe province.    '
These waters include the Eraser river above Chilliwack, Ihe
North and South Thompson, Ihi
Neehnceo and Ihe Stuart; the Co-
umbia, Kootenay, (Cottle, Okanagan, and Bimilkameon, rivers in
I hi' Columbia system, and the
Arrow, Kootenay, Okanagan and
Shuswap lakes. The Tribune
proposes in a future issue to toll
ils readers something of the work
thai Mr. Aylmer lias mapped out
and in progress in these waters.
On the property of Ihe deparlmenl at Chase considerable work
has been done during Ihe pasl
year. The olllces are convenient
and commodious, ami surrounded
by well kept grounds that will he
further improved anil exleiiileil
during the present summer. Tin
river along Ihe front of the
property has been dredged and a
dock constructed, There are slips
which al high water the dredges
used in Ihe service pan be hauled
up for repairs and calking. A
yard will evcnlually he equipped
in which dredges and boats required in Ihe work of Ihe department in these waters can he eon-

L*m Display of Interest Than Wm
Ev��r Shewn In Common* In Connection With a Qraat Political Project
���Present* Remarkabl*
London.���No great political project
was ever debated In the house of commons with less display ot Interest on
the part of the members and the general public than the home rule bill.
Speeches were delivered to a halt
empty house. A (ew Irish priests were
the only spectators In tae galleries
who appeared particularly concerned
with what was passing on the floor.
A recent oratlcal performance, la
whioh Winston Churchill, who Is rated
as the most brilliant of the younger
politicians In either party, waa the
star, received hardly any enthusiasm.
A more remarkable contrast than was
presented by thli exhibition, and tbe
fierce battles over tne other two home
rule bills when statesmen like Gladstone, Paraell, -Chamberlain and Har
tlngton fought bitterly every Inch ol
the ground and racial and party passions were stirred to the depths,
could not possibly be conceived.
One reason for this Is the present
new system whereby the house of
lords may prolong legislation over a
period of two years, which postpones
the critical stage of the meadure. Another 1b the nature of the Conservative opposition to the bill, which, except on the part of the representatives
of Ulster, Is generally lukewarm. Several members complained of the length
of the speeches..    And the   speaker
It was a sane position, taken by one
of the speakers at tbe recent Child Labor Conference, that children always
had worked, always would work, always
must work, and it was good for them
to work. Unfortunately, reforming becomes a profession, and many reformers loss their sanity. Froebel ought
to have prepared us by this time to
understand tbat work and play are
substantially one, and tnat a child old
enough to play ia old enough to work.
It has always been a provision of
Nature tnat the hands should keep
pace with tbe brain, and that hand-
oulture should be oloaly indentiSed
with brain culture. Nothing can occur more unfortunate than a failure
to train the hands to helplulnes; that
ia, to expresa a desire to share the
burdens ol othera.
Tbe juvenile court waa an inspiration, and ita formulator fortunatlj waa
a sane man. He set on foot ealvation
for thouasnda of young people. He
bss, however, promulgated no idea
tbat young offenders csn be weaned
of criminality by baseball and moving
pioture shows. Whet our youug
people need is work and plenty of it.
They need not be overworked, nor need
tbey be shut in (rem the sunshine of
life; but any proposition that eliminates boya and girls from the bread-
winning force, or makea them simply
a eoolal burden, is a blunder,
We are willing to go nearly aa far
aa one of our contemporaries in charging tbe high cost ol living to the fact
"tbat children in well-to-do famlies are
not trained up to btlp aa systematically and thoroly as they were formerly."
He is right tbat the cost ol living
is greatly enhanced when the children
are no longer willing to assist in tbe
essential work of the family, and when
the parents ate willing to take upon
themselves tbe responsibility. The
cost of living depends upon tbe amount
of hired help tbat is necessary. It is
no excuse for tbis alsteof affairs when
we are told lhat the children must be
sent to school. We wait with considerable impatience the alow change
tbat is going on, from educating our
obildren away from the farm and tbe
kitehen to a home and school education tbat will specifically fit them lor
making home life comfortable for the
wbole family as well as lor themselves
Every child should be a social help
and family help, and should be trained
for that purpose definitely, to take his
place in the working world,  Trained
to work does not mean trsirrd away
from eduothn. Inde I. education
has fo" ita prima end to enable the ycung
to me faots. What we want is glori
fioation of labor, until we entirerly
alougb olf the eon who will put his
parents under a mortgage to pay for
his college luxuries, and tbe daughter
wbo will serve as a show, and be contented aa auob, while ber mother weara
out with undue toil.
We are well aware tnat we are not
covering the whole subject. Tne factory bss surly taken small children
and set them to merciless tasks. Law
does righteously in regulating tbis
matter. But those who shoulder the
reform should, above all, avoid promulgating the idea, that even small
obildren should not be taught to do
their share in the family. So long as
poverty is as widespread and deep as it
still is, the poorest families will not
lead an ideal life. The children as
well aa the adults will oome in for
their share of the consequences, tbe
pinching and tbe suffering. Relieve
it all that we can, but at no point
should we teach that human lile can
be made up of frolic and play. School
itself must mean work, not play; both
baain work and hand work.
The great problem is not play-ynrils,
but workshops; not how to amuse the
ycung, but how to use them; and how
to so organize labor tbat it shall be
come the great glory ol human Hie, ol
childhood sod of youth as well aa adult
life. The saddest feature and the
least hopeful iu our large cities is the
chndition oi those young people who
ate entirely out of tbe industrial
sphere, wilh nothing to teach them
steadfastness of will and sell-support,
floating about without purpose, and so
far as their future usefulness is concerned, without hope���a vast mass ol
human beings, without real training
to fill tbeir places in society, and do
their share of the world's work.
Can we not, by united effort, make
fruit-growing as attractive as football,
and homekeeping ss attractive as
bridge and tennis? Wecirtainlj can
not do this until we recognize that
tbere is nothing in work itself that
should be despised or .readed. What
tbe world needs just now is wise bands,
and brains wise to dinct the hands.
We believe in legislation and agitation
to prevent the dwarfing of children
intellectually and physically in our
schools. All along the line where
there ia abnormal wealth and where
there is painful poverty the only cure
il wisely directed work,

The Right Honorable J. E. B. Seely,
parliamentary secretary of the war office, said tbat those who doubted the
sincerity of Irishmen when they declared that they would carry out the

same persons who doubted the good
faith of the Boers when the South
African Union act was Introduced.
"You were wrong then," he added, addressing the opposition, "and now admit It. Are you going to be so mad
as to repeat your error?"
"The Irish people," he continued
"have shown as a whole that they are
the last people to break their pledge

Railway   Commission   Finds    There   is   Discrimination
Against Prairie Provinces and Railways Must
Justify Their Existing Rates
Toronto ��� After hearing H. W,
Whltla, of Wlmiliieg, counsel for the
Dominion Government, present elab-
otate tables of figures showing the
enormous discrimination against tho
west In freight rates, running In some
cases to over 25 per cent., the railway
commission decided that the onus
must be placed on the railways, and
they must justify their existing western rates. The inquiry, however, will
not stop at that. After an interesting legal contest, Mr. Whltla and Jas.
Bicknell, K.C., the government counsel, won a decided victory by securing a ruling that every phase of
freight rates will be investigated, not
only the question ot discrimination
against the west, but, if necessary, the
reasonableness of the east as well as
the west, and the general basis upon
Which they were established.
The railway counsel tried hard to
confine It to merely the question ot
discrimination, the position which was
taken by M. K. Cowan, K. C, counsel
for Alberta and Saskatchewan, who
ebjected to It going further. This Mr.
Whltla and Mr. Bicknell stronuously
opposed, and finally won a signal victory, which, In the end, may mean
much to the western shipper and consumer.
The date for the next sitting, when
the railways will assume the onus of
justification, was not fixed, but it was
made very clear that there must be
no delay, and the railways are to give
notice by May 21 whea they can proceed with the caHP. "This is the most
serious matter the board has ever considered," said Mr. Scott, "and we
want   to give tbe railways sufficient

the central executive toward Italy.
The India office official states that
not only his department, but also
other government offices are inundated with letters and telegrams from
Moslem communities in every part
of the British empire. Hence, continues the India office official:
"While the Indiaa government Is
preoccupied by the widespread and
eerious character of the pan-islamic
agitation,the homo government In I^on-
don Is constrained to exert its efforts
to the utmost to limit more and moro
the sphere of conflict; and cannot act
in any way that could be Interpreted
as hostile to Turkey, in much the
same way as it has been obliged to
adopt an energetic attitude in the
face of Russian projects in the Persian question.

and we want to Btay with the job. We
will give you until the next Bitting

the case, and notify us when you are,
ready to proceed."
An Interesting development- of the
nveBtlgatloa was the fact that the
r. P. It. presented lo Mr. Whltla tables
alleging to be the reveaue and operating expenses of recent years, which
were found to be entirely different
from tables presented when the Vancouver rate case was before the
board. The new statements, Mr.
Whltla showed, Increased the total op
crating charges on all the various divisions, In one case, on the Winnipeg
division, by an amount no less than
(350,000. The new tables also Increased the expenses per mile by no.
less than (428. Mr. Whltla pointed
out that It was very strange that two
such strikingly different statements
should be presented.
Mr. Chrysler, counsel for the railways, said they would explain the
difference In due time, but vouchsafed
no Information to the board. In addition to enormously Increasing the
operating figures, the now tableB decreased the earnings by, In one case,

Weekly Grain Letter Supplied by
Thompson, Sons * Co., Grain Merchants, Winnipeg.
The advance In prices In the wheat
markets which was set going by the
flood of damage reports regarding the
winter wheat crop In the central states
of the United States continued briskly
up till April 20th, by which date the
highest prices for the present
crop year were reached In the
United States markets and
also In our Winnipeg market
There seems little doubt tbat the amount of winter killing will result In the
abandonment of tho largest number ot
acres on record. It Is freely
estimated now that as much as
5,000,000 acres (own to winter
wheat last fall will have to be
counted out of this year's United
States winter wheat acreage.. Mr. B.
W. Snow, the well-known crop expert,
Issued a summarized estimate, which
stated that the general situation did
not encourage un expectation of over
350,000,000 bushels of winter
wheat this year In the United
States Last year the final official
estimate after threshing was a
yield of 431,000,OOu bushels.
Today an estimate of the probable
acreage under spring wheat in the
Dakotas and Minnesota forecasts a
reduction of about 2,000,000 acres, and
and the reasons given for this are
shortage of fall plowing, a desire on
the part of a great many farmers to
increase diversity la cropping, and
unfavorable weather In North Dakota
delaying the seeding of wheat. One
caa easily understand the desire to Increase the acreage of other crops at
the expense of wheat when one considers the big prices going for oats, barley, flax, hay aad potatoes, but a decrease of 2,000,000 acres In wheat la
the three leading spring wheat state,
on the back of the big de-
ereaso -la winter wheat acreage
would be sensational and unless
the average yield per acre
over the country does not come close
to a record yield, the wheat situation
in the United Slates during the crop
year of 1912-1913 would be absolutely
on a domestic basis. In the United
States In the last few days there 1b a
considerable falling off of the primary
receipts as compared with a year ago,
and an Increase In primary shipments; If continued,, there will soon
be a large decrease la the United
States visible supply. In regard to
statistics last week, the world's shipments were comparatively large at
13,824,000 bu��� against 12,016,000 bu. a
year ago. Tho quantity on ocean passage increased 1,824,000 bu., and the
total Is now 55,848,000 bu., against 56,-
656,000 bu. one year ago, so that It Is
now only 808,000 bu. less than a year
ago, whllo on March 1st tho quantity
on passago was 15,000,000 less than at
the same date In 1011. The amount
on passago Is included in the European vlelblo supfil.;, and last week that
visible showed an Increase of 3,712,-
000 bu., whereas a year ago there was
a decrease of 3,400,000 bu. Thus tho
aggregate European visible now
stands at 93.836,000 bu., against 108,-
704,000 bu. last year, so that there Is
now only a shortage of 14,868,000 bu.
compared with last year, whereas at
tho beginning of March the figures
showed a sliorlage of 37,080,000 bu.
tliis year as compared with same date
In 1911. Even tho stocks In public
warehouses in Liverpool have begun
to Increase slightly, and this week
amount to 936,000 bu., against 872,000
bu. last week and 2,304,000 bu. last
yenr. The United States visible bup-
ply decreased last week 1,800,000 bu���
against a decrease of 1,675,000 bu, a
year ago, and now stands at 46,160,-
000 bu., compared to about 31,653,000
bu. last yeor. The Canadian visible
Blipply aggregates 31,093,000 bu.,
against 13,072,000 bu. last year. A
study of the foregoing statistics affords no ground for any big advaace
In wheat prices. As compared with a
year ago prices show the large advance of 15c to 25o In the United
StateB market h, nnd 10c in our Winnipeg market so that It is just possible that the markets are going a little too fast. Wo have all along looked
for higher prlceB, and we are now getting them, but only time will decide
���as to wheeler we are justified In looking for a further Important advance.
Much will depend on the progress of
this year'B world's crops. Evidently
thero Is no hope of anything but a
moderate or small winter wheat crop
In the United States, but tbe Bprlng
wheat crops of ttie United States and
Western Canada may do well, and European crops are giving a good average promise. Caution at the present
time In buying on the advance Is Inadvisable, but unfavorable weather for
tills year's crops will sead price, very
Our Winnipeg market continues as
strong and healthy as ever. Notwithstanding tho great accumulations of
wheat waiting at the terminals for
the opening of lake navigation, and
continued liberal movement from the
country, there Is a good demand for
all grades of cash wheat, and evidently no scarcity of money to pay for It.
Lake navigation will probably open In
a day or two, and will let loose a
flood of wheat, which, however, is already Bold for export. The work of
seeding the new crop over Weatern
Canada Is progressing, not fast, but
steadily, r.nd the season so far Is what
we would call normal. We have two
drawbacks, the shortage In fall plowing and too much Inferior seed, but
how these may affect the acreage and
the character of the crop cannot bo
known until later.

They have a brand new paper
In the little town of Chase,
And I'll say it is an honor
To the modern printing race,
To think that they have members
In their great fraternity,
That can turn out as breezy paper
As that one appears to be.
They publish all their items
In the language of the day
They cut out high-brow language
In the things they have to say,
And all the news they gather
Well, they print and send to us,
For the knocking of their critics
They don't seem to give a cuss.
Now you just keep a working
In the way you've started out
And you'll capture many bank checks
In your town beyond a doubt.
And notify your knockers
That they're welcome all to go
To the place the preachers talk of
Where they never shovel snow.
' D. S. Mitchell, who has charge
of the government fish hatchery
at Kaull made a pleasant call at
the Tribune ofllce last week.
What Mr. Mitchell doesn't know
about llsh isn't worth knowing.
In the Shuswap lake there arc
several varieties of fish that prey
upon the fry of salmon. The
most deadly uf these is the ling.
Last year a determined effort was
made tu rid tbe lake of these
posts. More than three thousand were captured. This year
only a very few are to be found,
so lhat. a young salmon born in
1012 will have a much better
chance for his life than if he had
begun his career in  nil 1,
He lakes some chances yel,
however, lie must he careful
not to cross Hie bow of a hungry trout, or nunc nearer limn
six inches to Hie mouth of a
sucker. A Iroiil, nf course, gives
value received for all Hie young
salmon ho enis. liul however useful the human sucker may he to
the real estate man who has a
subdivision to sell, his lluny
brother of the lake cannot oiler
much excuse for his existence.
The chance for ridding tho lake
of suckers is not good, so the
baby salmon must continue lo
take some risks.
A sucker's name well describes him. He opens bis mouth
and everything within six inches
that is not heavy enough lo resist the suction comes his way.
It may be spawn on the bollom
or insects or young llsh who
have ventured within the charmed circle; all is gi'isl lhat conies
to the sucker's mill. At the same must be put down lo Ihe
crodit nf Ihe sucker thai his appetite has a limit, while the ling,
like England's seas is 'still unfed.' One ling is quite as destructive as a hundred suckers.
To one who frequents the lake
the teeming waters seem scarcely to call for any careful conservation or artificial replenishing
of the stock, yet we know what
has happened in many eastern
lakes and streams. We cannol
but commend the wisdom of our
government in thus faking early
steps to prevent the depletion of
these water's which nl present offer opportunities to the sportsman that are not excelled anywhere on Ihe contincnl.

a high, holy, hrnvonly culling to represent God and Christ In the power
of tho Holy Spirit and be so alive
to their Interests that we shall be
wholly dead to our own.
The lovo of God and of Jesus Christ
Is the greatest thing we ever heard
of, and th��re are no more wonderful
statements concerning It than John III.
16; 1 John III, 16.
Put with these "God commendeth
His love toward us In that while we
were yet sinners Christ died for us."
"In this was manifested the lovo of
God toward us because that God sent
His only begotton Son Into the world
that we might live through Him." "He
spared not His own Son, but delivered
Him up for us all." "Christ loved the
church and gave Himself for It." "The
church of God which Ha hath purchased with His blood.' "The Son of

had a devil and was mad and that He
deceived the people, and In their hatred they finally killed Him, accusing
Him falsely and giving Him no semblance of a fair trial (John I, 10, 11;
vll, 12, 20; vlll, 52; x. 20). Yet He
bore It all patiently and did not talk
back nor strilte back, though He might
have swept them off the earth with a
look or a word, as He will do at His
coming In glory to set up His kingdom and share It with His own redeemed ones (Isa. xl, 4; II. These.
II, 8; Col. Ill, 4; Hev. Ill, 21).
Now, considering tl'it by such love
and by the. sacrifice of Himself He
has at such Infinite cost and by such
suffering, bearing our sins In His own
body, made all who receive Him children of God and Joint heirs with Himself, partakers of His kingdom and
glory, does It not look a good bit easier to love, to bloss, to help others
for His sake, to give, to lend, to do
good, hoping for nothing again, to
serve those who cannot serve us In
return? Do we not feel like saying
as Mephlbosheth said of Blha, "Yen,
let him take all, forasmuch ns my
Lord tho King le come again" (II.
Sam. xlx, 80).
Our Lord never encouraged wrongdoing, and we may be sure that He
would not have us do anything to on-
courage Injustice and oppression,
theft or robbery or Idleness or anything of the spirit that would wrongfully take tho property of another,
lint He would have ub show In our
dully life that we have such treasure
In Hlnisolf nnd in His kingdom that
we are ready to ubo all present things
for the good of others If only we may
win them to Him, bearing meekly any
loss or cross for Ills sake. The love
of Christ constralneth us to live no
longer unto ourselves, but unto Him
who died for us and rose again (I. Cor.
v, 14, 15). Since Paul could take
pleasure In Infirmities, In the bearing
of Insults, In distress, In persecutions,
In grlovous difficulties, for Christ's
sake (II. Cor. xil, 10). Waymouth, the
same grace 1b at our disposal, to enable us to reckon all Iobs aB mere refuse because of the prloeless privilege
of knowing Christ Jesus as our Lord.
Does It not seem aB If we could lend
or give or go or bear any loss because of such love and because of His
kingdom? Let our one question be,
"Lord, what wilt Thou have me to
do?" and our motto, "Just to please
JesuB,' and wo shall not be apt either
to transgress or come short.
