is Ibe victim required to remain immersed and the bath is warm enough
to be comfortable, even though it is
more nv less distasteful. A system of
coil pipes has been installed and fitted
into the firebox, warming the fluid
as it circulates from the vat.
The work of dipping the cattle is
curried on 'most expeditiously, the
entire three herds from the Shaw,
Ooburti and Chase ranches having
been put through in less than two

Another application will be given
them in them in ten days and the
cattle will then be entirely free from

St'ites. 'where ha has businesN and
financial interesid, He went first to
North Carolina and made an inspection of Hume mining property in which
he is interested. On bis reLuni he put.
in several days at International Fulls,
Minnesota, where he owns a hotel.
Mr. Underwood took particular
notice of the numerous health, scenic,
summer and winter resorts. He wanted to compare them with Chase and
the Shuawap Lake district. And the
comparison, so says Mr. Underwood,
was entirely creditable to Chase. In
fact, Dick says that Chase has more
advantages than any of the places he
visited. He says that the scenery In
this vicininty is unsurpassedanywhere
along the line. And the* boating and
fishing facilities cannot he equalled.
Also, Chase is hacked by almost unlimited resources of timber and agricultural lands, thus insuring its future as
a commercial center,
Mr. Underwood brought back with
him a number of samples of gold ore
from bis North Carolina mines. It is
the real dope and enough of it would
cause a man to snub old J. Pierpout
himself.
DIPPING CATTLE AT
BIG CHASE RANCH
Sunday's baseball game between the
Stiff Collars and the Dirty Shirts was
as intesesting as it was errorless. The
score resulted 11 to 40 in favor of the
umpire.
Captain Walter Lammers of the
Stiff Collars did most of the pitching
and about half of the batting for bis
nine. Harry Law was on the receiving end of the battery and filled in his
spare momenta with high class vaudeville stunts. Eddie Foy, in his palmy
days, had nothing over Harry. In
his base running specialty and the
great lay-down-aud-roll-over act Harry
a scream and well worth the price
of admission. Also, he is some ball
player. George Rittman held down
the initial sack for the Stiffs. Eitt
old boy is a ball player from his sur-
Bingle both ways. He fields his position like a major lesguer and(he, also,
Mid half of the batting. Tha remainder of the batting for the Stiff Collars
was done by Andy MoConnell and the
common ball players.
The Dirty Shirts played a stiff uphill game. Numbered among them
are some ol the players who will be
seen on tbe regular team. There is
some fine material there too, and
Chase should give a good account of
herself on the diamond  this  season.
After the game a meeting was held
and a start made for organization,
Harry Law was elcoted as manager and
Floyd Harry was chosen as oaptain,
Tbe organization will be continued
through the week and next Sunday
will see the first practice game.
A base ball team can do a great deal
toward advertising a town, Furthermore the sport is healthy and honest
and should be encouraged among the
rising generation. Some financial
assistance is necessary and doubtless
will be immediately forthcoming. The
diamond is to be leveled down and the
grounds otherwise put in first olass
condition.
Tbe first game scheduled is with
Kevelstoke on tbe 24th of May. The
Revelstoke C. P. R's are said to be
the fast team of that city and it is
up to Chase to pull their wigs off
right in the first game, Will our
boys do the act? Well, leave it to
them.
To be soused liudily in a warm solution of lime mid sulphur may not tie
very pleasant, but, it is good for n
lousy cow they say, Also it puts tbe
kibosh on the pip and gives the eternal
riinaknhno to all parasites of the t*kin.
Dipping cattle is no fun for the cattle
nor the vermin, hut it is good business
for the stockmen.
Ahuot 500 head of cattle have been
put through tile dipping process at
the Chase ranch. Most ef them were
the property of George Chase, lessee
of the ranch and who conducted the
dipping operations. Messrs. J. P. Shaw
and George Coburn brought up about
80 head to be dipped.
The process uf dipping cattle is a
unique and interesting one, A stockade has been built connecting two
corrals. In the middle of the stockade
is a cage large enough to hold one or
two critters. Beneath the cage is a
10 foot vat containing about 1400 gallons of the lime and sulphur solution.
The porportions of the mixture are
24 lbs of sulphur and 10 lbs of lime to
100 gallons of water.
When the bovine victim is Hafely
within the confines of the cage it 1

POPULAR YOUNG FOLKS
JOINED IN WEDLOCK
A quiet and very pretty wedding
took place at the Presbyterian manse
in Kamloops on April 11, the principals being Miss Jessie May Price and
William W. Bradley both of Chase.
The ceremony was performed by the
Rev. Mr. Wylie. The bade was attended by her Bister Miss D. Price,
while the groom was accompanied by
his brother Ernest. The happy young
couple departed on the evening train
for their bridal tour through the Okan-
agan valley.
When the newlyweds returned to
Chase Monday night they were met
by their many friends and the Chase
baud. They were serenaded to a fare-
thee-well and made to feel heartily
welcome in the town where they have
elected to make their home.
The bride is the daughter of Mr,
and Mrs. W. Price, now of Westminster and formerly of Chase. She is
one of the most popular young ladies
in the community. Mr. Bradley is
the son nf Mr. and Mrs. K. P. Bradley
o Chase, He is an enterprising and
dependable young man,

his     associates,     who     decide| forms the basis of    a\  splendid
lo . erect a first-class mill in
order to manufacture the timber
on their large holdings along the
Adams Lake and river. In area
about forty-three square miles,
hose limits were estimated to
ontain about 000,000,000 feet, of
which was about 75 per cent
cedar, the balance pine, fir' and
spruce. The plant was started
sawing early in i908, its construction having been supervised by the late J. A. Magee, who
was general manager until his
sudden demise in November of
last year���an occurrence that
was deeply regretted by the mill-
men of the province.
The mill site consists of approximately seventy acres, hence
it was possible to allot ample
space to each building so as to
permit of future enlargements if
necessary, while conforming to
the original design laid down for
the finished whole. The sawmill
is a substantial and roomy three
story structure, the upper portion having side lights along ils
entire length on both sides. The
equipment comprises two double
ing band mills, one band re-
saw, one double Diamond edgor,
and other modern machinery to
make Ibe mill ono of the mosl
up-to-date in Canada, from a
manufacturing point of view, the
ten-hour capacity being 175,000
font. This is frequently exceeded, however, as high as 210,0(10
fed of one, and two inch lumber
having been manufactured in ten
hours. Power is supplied by a
1000 h. p. Corliss engine, capable
of furnishing about 300 h p.
more than is needed at present.
The boilers are of ample capacity
one being held in reserve mosl
of the time. The stack is the
tallest on any mill in British Columbia, being 184 feet in height.
The planing, mill, situated
about eight hundred feet from the
sawmill, is equipped throughout
with Berlin machines, the list
comprising three matchers,
double surfacer, sizor, inside
moulder, self-feed ripsaw, circular resaw, band resaw, swing
cut-offs, etc.
There is a complete blower
system, having two double 70
fans which deliver surplus shavings to the mill burner. 7 hundred
f, et distant. The burner ,s a
sled water jaeke!, built by the
MusUegon Boiler Works, Muskr-
..ystem for fire protection. This
system is circulating at all points
on the mill property and lumber
piling ground, with hydrants and
hose shelters well distributed.
Thousands of feet of hoso and
reels arc available to reach points
where extra hose may be needed.
The system is also carried into
both mills, where numerous
stand-pipes with hose attached
make it possible to flood every
part of the buildings at a moment's notice, night or day.
The company is the original
owner of Chase townsite, and the
little community is rapidly increasing in size and importance
owing to the generous treatment
of all new comers. The hotel is
ono of the best in British Columbia outside the cities, and travellers make long jumps in order to
spend the week-end under its
hospitable roof. The mill water
system is extended into the town-
site, four-inch laterals being tak-
n from the main pipe line. Every
house uses Ihe water, a nice revenue accruing lo Ihe mill from
Ihis enterprise.
The oloolric lighting system is
nprraleil in connection with the
planing mill, and has a capacity
jf over 2000 lights. Light is furnished for the company's mills,
yards, buildings, and the town of
Chase, Ihe revenue from the sale
of light to the citizens being like-,
ly to show a surplus over the entire cost in the near future.
The Climate at Chase is all
that could bo desired; being on
the edge of the dry belt, but very
little rain falls during the summer months, and the snowfall is
correspondingly light in winter.
Lumber, piled in the open dries
very rapidly, thus making the use
of dry kilns unnecessary. The
result is better lumber, a fact
which prairie buyers have not
been slow lo recognize. The arrangement of the yard is especially pleasing, owing to the system followed. The alleys crossing the main driveway are plainly
marked by large projecting signs,
and every pile in the respective
alleys also bears a small card
stating the kind of lumber and
particulars of contents. As a result of this system the sales
manager at his desk in the office
can ascertain the contents of every pile by looking at his yard
chart, and can plan out a mixed
car shipment while one is saying
"Jack Robinson."
As stated above, the firm's limits lie along Adams Lake ami
river. Contrary to Ihe usual custom followed in such cases, the
company is logging the more distant limits, first, and have their
camps established between the
head of Adams Lake and Tiim-
tum Lake, about seventy-five
miles from the plant. About 30
miles of tote road lap the camps,
over which four horses haul
7000 lbs. on wagons. Tho cut of
logs during 1910 was about
thirty million feet, and this will
be slightly exceeded in 1911. The
company has a small portable
sawmill located near the upper
camps, which is used for sawing
such lumber as is required for
camp construction and similar
purposes, power being supplied
by a donkey logging engine.
At the head of Adams Lake, a
body of water forty miles long,
said to be the deepest on Ihe
North American continent, is located the depot camp, comprising
a large dock and warehouse,
store, sleeping quarters and
boarding house. The men and
supplies nre sent to this point
by boat and distributed from
these to the.various camps. At
this point the company also has
booming works with a capacity of
several million feet of logs, and
owns the foreshore around the
bay where they arc located.
The powerful steamer "A. R.
Helen," built by the company in
1908 at a cost, of $22,000, makes
regular trips from the loot or
outlet of Adams Lake to Jiepol
camp, covering the forty mile
run in three and a half hours.
The same boat handles all the
liiK.-tfiiou ^���|-,i,l,i:*iu^ i , the fool,'
of the lake, and has delivered a
tow of three million feet in 72
hours.
At the foot, of Adams Lake the
company has a large dock and
warehouse, camp.'i, offices and
other buildings, reached by tote
road of seven miles from Shus-
wap Lake. Similar buildings and
wharf are maintained at Ihe bead
of the last mentioned lake, and
supplies and passengers are
handled between that point and
the mill, five miles distant, by the
steamer "Crombie," built last
year at a cost of $12,000.
The    Men     In    Charge���Their

J. P. McColdrick, president of
the company, is one of the most
prominent lumbermen in northwestern Washington and a leading citizen of Spokane, where he
holds extensive property interest.

MRS. McGEE'S
FAREWELL
Chiue is this week losing two highly
esteemed members from it? social
circles in Uhe persons of Mrs. McQee
mid Mrs. Ackers. The home of Mrs.
Mi Geo was one of the first built on tha
townsite. nnd from the beginning of
things here she and ber d-uurhter
have been active in the social life of
ihe town.
The esteem in'.whlch these Indies are
held is evidenced' by tho gathering
that met on Monday evening at the
home of Mr. and Mrs, Leadstone to
hid them fnrewell. Tho early part of
the evening was spent in various
diveisions of a social nature. The
party was then called to orncr by Mr.
E, E, Brooks, who after a preface of
a few appreciative words, read the
following address frem the people of
the town:
It is with feelings of sincere regret,
Mn. MoOee, that we, the people ol
Chase, are come together this evening
to bid you farewell as you are about
to leave our town. Mingled, however, with those feelings of respect and
affection that cannot but arise while
we review in thought the years you
have spent among us.
Wholly taken up, as we msy have
seemed to be, with our little selfish
interests, we have all found time to
msrk with pleasure not unmixed with
wonder, your example of unfailing
cheerfulness and perfect poise, wbieh
tell of a heart that knows some secrets
whiob most of us have yet to learn.
We have noted bow you have always
been ready with the friendly word of
cheer, how the faces even of the children brightened as tbey met you on tbe
street, how your speech about us as
well as to us has been full ol kindness and appreciation. We have hit
that your home has always been open
to us. You have ever teen the friend
of any movement that was for the
public good ol the town or for the
private -benefit, ol'thf-V,jt oJ^iJajjilji���-,
Because ol all these things we are
glsd, end our gratitude and affection
are yours. Though thus presented
yon will know that there is nothing
merely formal about these our words
ol farewell; that tbey are true, and as
warm as is our appreciation ol a womanly life that is lived witbout ostentation. Nor as we thus speak ol what
you bave done lor us and been to us,
can we disassociate you from them em-
ory of your lamented husband, the
hononored founder of our town, one
whose name will long be on tbe lips ol
our townspeople, as a type of what a
man should be.
And now while it is with profound
regret and a sense of our loss that we,
the people of Cbase, bid you farewell,
it is with our who"., iiearts that we
bid you Godspeed-
Immediutely following the address
Mrs. James ICniig presented Mrs.
McGee on behalf of the old-timers
with a cut glass fern dish and vases,
and Mrs. Ackers with ii silver salt
dish.
Mrs McQee and Mrs, Ackers replied
with appropriate winds of thanks,
Mrs. McGee assuring all that they
would idwuys lie welcome to her home
in Seattle.
Mr, A. McConnell then Hpoke feel-
ingly of his early associations with
both Mr. and Mrs. McQee, recalling
the occasion when he mill the late Mr.
McGee Imil driven the first stake on
the townsite,
J. P. Shaw, M. P. P. followed with
some well chosen remarks. Ae express,
ed the hope that Mrs. MoQee nnd Mrs.
Ackers, like so many others who leave
our province, might find its lore so
strong upon them that they would
have to come ck   .
Coffee and cake were served, and
about midnight tbe party broke op,
after an evening Hint left one, both
literally and metaphorically, with a
good taste in one's month,
\
Influx of Amsrlcans.
"The present outlook is that there
will be forty thousand more Americans enter western Canada this year
than last," said Mr. W. J. White, superintendent of American immigration
agencies, who was in Ottawa recently.
Unimportant Man.
Many a man goes away from home
for a week and imagines, that He is
missed by the whole community, and
when he conies home he finds that
there isn't a person in town that knew
he had been away.

Nobility which made him master of
that vast tract of country that
Stretches from Annapolis on the east

Shortly after the army that had
been sent to America by Cromwell
captured Acadia from the French, the
two great families of La Tour and
D'Entremont were joined by marriage.
Two daughters of tho High and
Miglity Lord La Tour became the
wives of Philippe Meuse D'Entremont,
Boon the Nova Scotia La Tours had
all died ,aml thus it fell that the
title to the baronage vested in the
D'Entremonta, in which family it has
remained to this day.
Blood Still  Pure.
More than two centuries have passed, but the lineage of the Barons ol
Pubnico has continued unsullied. No
foreign blood has been mixed with
theirs, it is still as pure as when tho
inhabitants of Pubnico first paid turning) to their new bird. Directly, from
eon to father, Hilaire D'Entremont
trace? his descent from Philippe
Meuse, the D'Entremont of the grant;
ltis family is not collateral; it is the
eoim line that flourished in the days
before the Lilies of France gave way
to the Roses of England, in tho vast
Dominions over seas. His family were
makers of history, hewers of destiny,
and the present baron is rightfully
proud of the "glory that once was
ours."
All readers of history will remember that when Acadia was cqi]<h\ to
the English, there was a stipulation
hi the treaty which exempted the
French in Acadia from taking the
oath of allegiance, or bearing arms
against the French in that portion
of Canada which still remained to
France. In all the new world there
was no land like this. The forests
were virgin, and game abounded
through miles of wonderful timber
limits upon which no white man had
placed a foot. Streams teemed with
fish; brooklets watered the pastures;
and on all-.sides lay productive farms.
But the French had been there long
years before the English, they had
tilled the soil for years; and of the
richest of this rich land they were
the owners. From Kngland enme settlers to reap the treasures that lay
waiting thi-m in the new possession.
Acadin was now a dependancy of
Britain, and Britain's sons would
share in the wealth that, according to
the report- that had ��� gone to the
homeland, was almost Inestimable,
When they came and found the
French in possession <>f all that was
best worth having, they woe first
disappointed, nnjl then tiny became
covetous. The abundance was not ns
great as the\ had bean led to believe,
and   aside   from   the   holdings   "f  tho
older Inhabitants, there was little to
compensate them for leaving England,
Expulsion From Acadia.
Soon the secret longing developed
into open niuniiuiings of dissatisfaction and the English determined to
find a means of seizing the farms that
belonged to the Acadians, The opportunity was not long in enming. Hardly had the troubles in Acadia between
England and France been settled,
when the two nations again became
Involved in war. Naturally enough
tho sympathies of the French in Nova
Scotia were with their countrymen.
The English settlers, eager to become
masters uf the soil, paid it was disloyalty and warned the authorities
that if stringent measures were not
taken the Acadian French would take
arms against England,
Promptly came the instructions that
the French were to subscribe to the
Oatli of Allegiance. The Acadians refused, the English said it was a further sign of disloyalty and impressed
upon the Government the fact that if
the French did rise up against the
English, they would probably succeed,
in retaking Acadia for France. Impressed by this reasoning, and, possibly, impelled by the desire to provide for the wants of the clamorous
settlers, England-notified the \cadians
that unless they forthwith swore allegiance to the King, they would be
expelled.
It is history that again the French
refused to take tbe oath and, consequently, were driven from their farms
and carried in ship.s to different parts
of New England, hut it is not my purpose to write of the hardships of the
expulsion. Tins is simply tho story of
the House of Pubnico.
On the cost rn side of Pubnico bar-
bor stood the Castle of "Cape Sable,"
the homo of Jacques D'Entremont.
Under the shadow of the structure
dwelt the retainers of this puissant
family; men and women whose very
existence was Interwoven with the
High and Mighty Lord whom they
served. The D'Entremonts had the
affection of their tenants, the latter
were good men and true, and the oath
of fealty that they had taken to their
masters was no empty ceremony.
Day of the Departure.
In the early autumn of 1750 the
stately Castle of Cape Sable was laid
low and the baron made prisoner and
his lands despoiled. 0��o day a Watcher of the oastle saw a largo vessel
under full sail heading up the harbor.
As she drew neaTer it became evident
that she was a ship of war. and ,n
ship of war approaching the stronghold of the Pubnicos could have but
one meaning. The blow had fallen,
the dreaded day of expulsion had arrived, and the settlers wera to be torn
from the homes that they loved.
But the D'Entremonts were then,
as now, men of courage, antl, as befitted their noble station, were prepared to fight to the death in the deduce
of their rights and their property. The
great bell in the tower was rung to
call in the workers in the nearby
fields, while messengers were despatched to warn those further away.
Men, women and children hurried
through the great gates of the oastle,
which, when the last retainer had entered were closed.
Just as the sun was dipping into
the west the strange ship dropped
anchor opposite tbe castle, and her
captain came ashore and requested
admittance to "Cape Sable." This
was refused, as was his demand that
the castle be surrendered to him.
Immediately the attack commenced.
The struggle was of short duration,
and in less than an hour the gates
were battered down; the fierce conflict in the castle yard over, and the
baron made prisoner. Then began tlie
work of plunder. The treasures of the
D'Entremonts were carried to the
ship. Before the nefarious work was
completed a small bnml of Acadians
came dashing to the rescue and succeeded in driving off the men from
tbe ship, not, however, before the latter had set fire to Cape Sable. Be-
for tho sun had disappeared into the
west all that remained of the stronghold of a High and Mighty Lord, were
smouldering   ashes,     and   crumpled
Stone.
The Baron D'Entremont was taken'
to Boston, where he remained ftntil
his death,
With the return of the Acadians
came two sons of the old baron who
journeyed back to Nova Scotia, and
settled upon the lands of their fathers, which had been re-granted to
them by Governor Lawrence, who also restored their barony. But the
D'Entremanta were not the great factors tbey had been before the expulsion. In the interval tbe Knglish
settlers had become the real rulers
ami master; of the country and the
returned Acadians were as strangers
in a strange land. No longer were
the Barons of Pubnico to be High
and Mighty Lords; no longer were
thoy to be the givers of justice.
And to-day all that remains of the
grandeur that once was their's is
memories, memories that are dearly
cherished by each generation of a noble  bouse.
The present holder of the title is a
fisherman, and, a gentleman. He is
advancing in age. ami each year he
stays more at home, while his heir
goes to the banks in his little fishing smack. If it should ever be the
fortune of any of my leaders to journey to Pubnico, tbey will have little
difficulty in recognizing Hibiire D'Entremont for the modest dignity of
his bearing and tho grace and eoiir-
teousneas of his manner bespeak tho
presence of ono who has.in his keeping the title and prestige of those who
were High and Mighty Lords of the
old Acadia.���Uaniel Owen in Montreal

HOME TALENT
Local Thespians Delight Large
Audience With "Why
Smith Left Home."
On Saturday evening, tbe 13th
inat, the Chase Dramatic Society,
recently organised under the enthus-
i>i��tio leadership of Miss Margaret
Lauder, made their first public pnblio
appearance Id the opera house here.
The play was a comedy in three acts,
entitled "Why Smith Lett Hnme"and
was put on as a benefit in aid of the
new isolation hospital,
Sever in the history ol theatricals
in the town haB any play, either by
amateurs or professionals, been more
thoroughly enpyed by the public.
The actors nnd actresses entered into
their work with zest, and played their
parts as it tbey enjoyed doing it. All
ihe work seemed to be inspired by the
true amateur spirit of playing for tbe
pure pleasure of the thing. The results
exemplified the truth of tbe principle
I lmt if the performers get pleasure out
of the performance, the aunience is
sure to do the same.
Smith and his wife, only a few
months married, have been camped
upon by relatives to such an extent as
to make life a burden, and Smith
resolves to be rid of them. He enters
ioto a coutraet with tbe new cook,
whereby she is to have $100 if she
can starve the latest uninvited guest
into leaving within 21 hours. A day
of amusing mistakes and misunderstandings, plots and eounterplote,
through which are brought out the
interesting characteristics of some
very interesting people, leads up to
the climax in which Dot only do the
unwelcome visitors depart, but Smith
himself leaves home. The mistress ol
the situation is the cook. The visiting aunt, the wife of "ze brave general" Billet-doux, is hard and uncompromising, but not bo uncompromising as the cook, nor half as hard ss
the cake alio leeds tbe undesirables.
The cook, backed up by the cook
ladies' union, en -;ly wins the day, and
ifaeVt'u/fidred dollars as well.
Admirable judgement had been
used in assigning the parts to tbe
various players. Mr. Lammers ss Smith
wus just the man for the part; strong,
mast, rlul, resourceful, he is with the
exception of the cook, the most forceful character in the play. Mrs.
Ackers as Smith's wife only needed to
be natural in order to represent well
the part of the charming and only too
bospitible hostess. Mrs. Leadstone as
the domineering and interfering aunt,
who manages her own husband and
would like to manage everyone else,
acted her part well. She meets her
match in Lavinia, (Miss Lauder) the
cook, who after her appearence in the
lint act leaves the stage amid a storm
of applause, and to the end ot the
play dominates the situation every
time she appears. Mrs. Clifford aoted
tbe typical old maid, a part in which
she excels. Mr. Verrall and Mr.
Haylock, as officers of the old guard,
had two of the most amusing as well
as moat dillicult roles to set, "ze brave
general" whose courage evaporates
when his wife enters, and tbe major,
conatant in his devotion to the old
maid, and going into a frenzy of passion when he finds he has a successful
rival. The rival is Mr. Christie, who
played two parts, the German count
anil Bob, the thriftless brother of
Smith's wile. His best work was done
in the role of the count; in which he
contributed much to the fun of the
evening with his German-built sentences that begin in the middle and taper
off at both ends. Mrs. Lammers, as
Bob's bride, is not enough in love to
forget to be hungry. She looked the
part to perfection. Miss Uvila, though
taking a minor part in the play, did
not slight it, but carried it through
with the unvarying smoothness that
marked the whole performance. Miss
Huwkes, as the bewitching maid Julie,
looked, ���well, not a man in the audience but would have forgiven Smith if,
after kissing her once by mistake, he
had yielded to the temptation to oot-
tinne with intention what was begun
by accident.
Miss Lauder and the whole club are
to be congratulated on the success of
this their first play Assistance was
Riven by Mr. Stuart Webster of Kamloops in arranging tbe make-up and
in other wayB. Itia to be hoped that
The Chase Dramatic Society will not
allow their talents to rust. They may
he pure of a packed house at any time
they cbooBe to favor the public with
another evenings entertainment.

Linguistic Puzzles.
Tho defeat nf the Llanelly linguists
who endeavored to understand the
strange tongue of a well-dressed
foreigner, apparently suffering front
loss of memory, recalls how all Paris
was mystified a few years ago by a
stranger speaking a weird gibberish
whip.;, he called "Agraoh." Ho ox-
cited extraordinary interest, nnd it
was loft to Mr. George R. Sims to
announce, that the mysterious language was a mixture of Romany,
Yiddish, and other tongues, jumbled
up witli thieves' slang, and tho user
proved to he a much-wanted nude-
factor from the Austrian Tyrol I
The value of weird talk as a disguise, and as a cheap way to notoriety,
was also discovered by one Giles
Carrington, who, calling himself Boh
Pali, and speaking and writing a
language that none could understand,
protended to be a wealthy Burmese
noble traveling for pleasure. He. so
far deluded the gullible that his
"notes of hand" proved better than
money, and he had a royal time.
And then a learned professor pronounced the strange language to be a
species of seamen's "Esperanto,"
much used by lascars, and "Prince
Boh Pah" was sentenced to eight
years' imprisonment for his impudent
frauds on trusting tradespeople and
bankers.

ANNOUNCEMENT OF INTENTIONS.
In greeting Hb thousands of readers and friends���present and
prospective���The Chase Tribune follows the time-honored custom
by making a declaration of principles and intentions. Summed up
briefly, the policy of this newspaper will be:
To advance the interests of Chase and the Shuswap and Adams
lake districts; to forever Ixxist the good and to remain eternally silent
regarding the no good���if any there be.
The Chase Tribune has no political axe to grind. The paper is
owned by a joint stock company aud the fact that the stock is divided
among members of the Liberal and Conservative parties should be the
best evidence of its non-partisanship.
The general scheme of development and progress in operation iu
the province of British Columbia and in fact throughout the entire
Dominion cannot fail in exciting the admiration and enlisting the
support of every patriotic citizen.
"DEVELOPMENT" is the magic word of the times. It ex-
presses the spirit of British Columbia and the men who are putting
the Province on the commercial map of the world in Utters of undying
brilliancy. And in that Development The Chase Tribune hopes to
take an active part. The men who are putting their ni mey into this
newspaper enterprise are Builders. They are Builders by natural inclination and a lifetime of useful effort. They are the backbone and
sinew of the fastest growing district of this most progressive Province.
Surely it is not for them to decry the honest endeavors of a government whose policy is all for Development and Progress, be that government Liberal or Conservative.
More railroads and more wagon roads for British Columbia is the
policy that has endeared the McBride government to the hearts of the
people. And it may be stated that Chase very modestly, cheerfully
and confidently hopes to come in for her fair share of those public
utilities.   Indeed, we are already slated for some of them.
To the friends and readers of this newspaper we wish to say that
your interests are our interests and we shall ever strive to make our
interests your interests. Give us your guidance and counsel if you
find us wandering from the pathway of virtue and usefulness. Give
us all the advice you may, so long as it is free, And above all, give
-w, oh give us your dollars* that we may live long and prosper as we
boost the fairest spot upon God's great footstool.
THE IDEAL LOCATION.
Being a new town, Chase is not yet on the map, But, being a
live and growing town, Chase will positively ������ppear on all maps published henceforward and forever.
Never was town more ideally located for commercial and residential purposes than Chase. 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 spruce, fir, pine and cedar timber. 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 relied 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 temperate zone.
Sooner or later that land will be plactd 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 as nothing else can. Every ten acres of
that land are cabable of supporting a family and supporting them in
royal style.
As a summer resort there is none better. We have the word of
a well informed gentleman for it. He says there is no more beautiful
spot along the ontire length of the C. P. R. than Chase and the little
Shuswap lake. Certainly it would be hard to imagine a more ideal
summer resort. A mountain lake in whose limpid depths are thousands and millions of finny gamesters longing to try the metal of the
venturesome nimrod, Long sandy beaches on the town side of the
hike causo its shores to be eagerly sought for bathing purposes, The
cool, wooded banks hold forth an eloquent invitation to the summer
resident and camper. Already quite a colony has sprung up along the
western shoro of tho lake.
Yes, Chase is fortunately located. Some day the maps of British
Columbia will show CHASE in big bold letters, here at the foot of
the Shuswap lakes, on the south fork of the Thompson river and on
the main line of the Canadian Pacific railway.
The disaster of the Titanic should furnish much food for thought
both to the traveling public and to those who have to do with the
transportation systems of the world. Speed, the destroying angel of
the modern age, has claimed its latest and most awful sacrafice. Sixteen hundred souls have been laid upon the briny altar, and all because
j puny man had again become so puffed with pride over his own invention that he defied and ignored God's g'eat laws of nature. A fifty
thousand ton steel city forcing its way through the water at a speed
of twenty-five miles an hour. Trying for a record, with the president
of the line aboard urging progress to the limit and paying no heed to
Nature's well known warning of the proximity of danger. And even
after the Titanic had struck the iceberg and received its awful rebuke
there were those aboard who still belied in man's mastery of the elements. No doubt it was that belief, inculcated alike in traveling public and traffic managers, that was chiefly responsible for the great liner
carrying only a third enough life boats. The lesson has been costly
and pathetic.   Let us hope it will be sufficient.
The men are still talking about that
famous supper given by the ladies of

GREATEST IN WORLD'S HISTORY
The Titanic, the Largest Ocean  Liner   ever   Designed,
Struck a Submerged Iceberg and,went down, Carrying
Hundreds of Victims to a Watery Grave
CONTRACT LET FOR NEW LINE
New York���In the darkness of the|
eight and In water two miles deep
the Titanic of the White Star fleet,
and the greatest of all ocean steamships, sank to the bottom of the sea. i
Of the 2200 persons who were ��-
board the great vessel, when she received her mortal wound in collision
with a leeberg more than 1200 went
to their death in the shattered hull.
The loss of the Titanic, costliest,
moat powerful, greatest of all ocean
fleet, while speeding westward on her
maiden voyage takes rank in marl-
time history as the most terrible of
���11 recorded disasters of the sea.
When the Titanic struck the mountain of Ice that sent her to the bottom
within four hours after the Impact,
���he was steaming at the rate of 18
knots an hour. The shock also demolished the proud vessel which her
builders and her captain had believed nothing could master. Hitting the impenetrable Ice mass fairly
with her towering boom, the ship
was almost rent asunder at the first
blow.
Her decks were ripped and torn,
her sides and bulkheads were split
and shattered as with the hammer of
���ome Titan, from the bow to a point
almost amidships. Her upper works
and some of her boats were splintered, while a shower of debris from her
���pars fell upon the decks like giant
hall. Though the ship had struck
the monster obstruction head-on, as
her bow rose clear of the water,
smashed to an unrecognizable mass
of bent and shivered steel, the vessel
listed heavily to port and threatened
to turn turtle before the recoil
brought what wag left of her proud
form back to an even keel. The
Titanic hud forced her giant bulk
���way up on a submerged spur of the
iceberg, a phenomenon which is not
Infrequent In most disastrous collisions with these glant-liku sentinels
of the banks. In mounting upon the
Jagged Ice spur, and In sliding back
from her position, the ship had torn
out many of her bottom ",-1-- from
the midships section, forward to bow.
As a result her compartments, from
amidships forward, were speedily
flooded. She took In water at a rate
that uefled the efforts of her pumps
and soon began to settle by the head,
listing heavily to port and rolling in
the trough of the sea. As she became gradually disengaged many
tons of ice which had fallen upon her
upper deck contributed to the demolition and Intricate confusion. The
for.?e of the blow had been so tremendous that the vast ai..p was started
in her every Joint and everyth.ng
movable throughout her superb
equipment of luxurious cabins and
saloons, was tossed Into heaps like
discarded junk.
But British seamanship and discipline prevailed and it did what
little might be done as well as daunt-;
less men could do It. Every officer
and man leaped to his post when
Captain Smith, megaphone In hand,
bellowed his orders over the rolling
hulk that an hour before had been
the proudest ship In chistendom. Sufficient order was maintained to
launch safely most of the boats, thti
greater number of which had remained seaworthy despite the ordeal
through which thoy had passed. Thle
work was progressing at once, the
women and children being given the
preference In the lifeboats. At first
the evidences of panic were well sup*
pressed, though there were many
painful scenes as wives and sisters,
sweethearts and mothers, parted
from their dear ones, whom th?y
were leaving to an unknown fate as
they took their alloted places in the
boats.
Several times as the compartments
rapidly filled, the vessel lurched hea-
vHy. Then the cry went up that the
ship was sinking and there was a
rush for the small boats, that for the
first time threatened to transform a
brave and orderly scene into one of
frenzied panic. As the Titanic settled lower under the weight of the
rapidly gaining water In her hold, It
was said that some of the boats were
stove in before they could have been
freed from the davits and that a few
were swamped In the effort to launch
them.
Withing less than an hour after the
doomed queen of the ocean fleets had
struck, she had settled so fast that
the water had flooded her engine
rooms and then her wireless apparatus went out of commission. At the;
same time the falling of her dynamos
extinguished her electric lighting
system and the mammoth craft was
plunged into a Stygian darkness, except for such feeble gleams as were
afforded by the use of torches and
lanterns. These served only to emphasize the horror of the mldnlebt
darkness, made more weird by '"** .-
Hons and shadows cast by the towering masses of Arctic pinnacles, surrounding the stricken ship. In the
daikness the work of launching the
remaining boats was.made more difficult, but all the boats, or nearly all,
had cleared the wreck before the Titanic had taken her final plnnge into
the obscure depths of a grave two
miles deep.

Observations In  Saskatchewan.
London.���"Anlmali and Human
Parallels" formed the subject of an
address given at me Times Booh
Club Saloon, by Thompson-Seton.
Thire was a large attendance.
Mr. Seton said that when Darwin
first made.good the theory that we
and the animals were akin, it gave
I wonderful Impetus to all such studies, and they found that by studying animals they could learn much
concerning themselves. In their
itudles they should always set out
with a theory, and they would get remits which they had not looked for.
Having pointed out that the polygamous and polyandrous animals had no
Chance with the monogamous, Mr. Seton gaw an account of the manner
In which wolves when they were In
Ho need of food, and in no danger
from stronger enemies, took part In
the form of social amusement. Foxes
bad a similar practice, and gamekeepers could, if they chose, tell them of
occasions on which these animals

these evidences to put togother, he

roots of something which could be
developed later on.
Attracting Manufacturer,
Calgary, Alto.���Not lias than 160
wholesale and manufacturing houses
now maintain branches in Calgary,
lending out some TOO commercial
travellers each week throughout the
Immediately adjacent trade territory.
The city Is now offering manufacturers liberal Inducements to locate here,
In the form of exemption from taxation upon plant and buildings until
IBIS; also power, light, water, and
factory site with trackage facilities
at cost. It is pointed out that under
this policy many large plants have
recently been secured, Including the
Western car shops of the C.P.R. with
2,500 men and the Dominion Bridge
company employing. 1200 men.
Has Ancient Bible.
Prince Albert, SaBk���A copy of
Martin Luther'B celebrated edition of
the Bible has been discovered here.
The Bible Is the property of John
Klein, of H.eitort, father of J. A.
Klein, of this city. It la printed in
j German and was published in four
parts at Frankfurth on-Main, Germany. Mr. Klein states that the fly
leaf of the first part, which Is now
missing, bore the date 1550. The fly
loaves of the other three parts are
dated 1660, 1570 and 1573 respectively. If this book Is genuine, and there
Is every reason to assume that It Is.
It Is worth a considerable amount of
nosey.
EVERY FRECAUTION TAKEN
Managing Director of Hamburg-American Line Qlvea Views.
Hamburg.���Albert Ballln, managing director of the Hamburg-American Line, in reply to an inquiry said,
referring to the possibility of Incorporating further safety devices on
large vessels: "The great shipping
companlea must try to enlarge and
improve upon the extensive measures of precaution which they have taken and which in their opinion and in
that of the underwriters already are
the highest possible security. It will
be clear to any reasonable man that
the size, speed and other qualities of
the unfortunate Titanic had nothing
to do with her loss. I am further
firmly convinced that the vessel was
fully provided with all modern aafety
appliances. Why they proved insufficient la a queatlon that can only be
answered after more extenalve reports have been received and examined by experts and the results studied with the greatest care in order to
improve as much as possible the
present measures of precaution."
Instrument to Detect Iceberga
Ottawa.���Tho disaster to the Titanic has aroused interest in official
circles, and In the experiments which
have been conducted by Prof. Barnes
for the perfection of the device Invented by him for the detection of
icebergs. It has been decided to
send one of the government boats to
tho Icefield area during the Bummer
months. The Invention is a thermometry device, which Indicates the
presence of a Held of Ice by recording tho slightest change In temperature due to tho presence of froaen

Winnipeg.���The "Made-in-CanadaM
exhibition train, which is to give wide
publicity to Canadian manufactures
In a new and novel way will be a recognized reality next month. The
first, sign of the preparations will
manifest Itself when on .May 1, tha
Winnipeg car, "dead-headed" (1-e.,
sent empty) over the O.P.R., will arrive In the city. It will be on the
track for about two weeks to give
local manufacturers a chance to in-
stal their exhibits, and will then be
sent to Port Arthur, to be attached
to the eastern section of the train at
that point.
The train will be on exhibition at
the Union station, Toronto, on May
18, and will leave for the west the
following day. It will be composed
of ten exhibition cars, one sleeping
car and one dining car, the latter to
he also used as a lecture room.
The cars are special!/ built, 60 feet
in length, and of the standard height
and width. Some of the cars will
have centre aisles, others side aisles,
with booth compartments. In the lecture car will be given stereoptican
lectures illustrative of the breadth
and diversity of Canada's manufacturing industries.
The whole idea of the "Made-ln-
Canada" train is similar to that of
the special agricultural train which
toured Canada recently; except that
the present one will be an industrial
train from "tender to tail end." Toronto avid western Ontario manufacturers have reserved about four cars.
The tour will commence at Montreal on May 15, and after spending
a day each in Ottawa, Toronto Fort
William and Port Arthur, the train
will reach Winnipeg on May 22. For
the evening of that day a special illustrated address Is projected, to be
delivered In the lecture car. The official lecturer will be T. H. Race, of
Mitchell, Ont., who has represented
Canada at world's fairs at Christ-
church, New Zealand; at Melbourne,
Australia; at Glasgow, Scotland; and
In Belgium.

The Tribune for All the News TEACHERS INSTITUTE
HELD AT KAMLOOPS
i
/
The Teachers' Institute at Kam-
loopa waa no doubt a luooeia aa com-
parad with teachera' inititutes at they
have been and are in (hit province
compared with what such a gathering
might be, it left something to be
deaired.
In point of numbers, attending the
convention waa perhaps all that was
to be expected, while at the same time
it is worthy of remark that leaa than
one tenth of the teachers of the province were present. It costB monev to
attend a convention, from twenty-five
dollars if you are within a radius of
fifty miles, to �� hundred if you live on
the Iringes. The minister of education, who knowi well enough that
teachera are not all millionaires, and
abat you connot upecS to get blood
out of a stone, announced an advance
���tip in the policy ot bis department, a
���tep that may swell the numbers at
future convention! beyond the accommodation of any oity except Vancouver or Victoria. Hereafter the expenses of teachers attending the institute
are to be borne by the government.
The 0. P. K. does well to enlarge its
Hotel Vancouver, for we'll all be there
next Bpring, to the number of over a
thousand.
While the number at KamloopB
was not large, we sincerely hope that
the teachers who itayed at home
measured up to to the sample. In
the quality of the goods a B. 0,
teachers'    convention     excels.
While must oT the sessions
with taken up with discussions
of the details of the teaching of
various    branches,    there    were
times when speakers went deeper
ami louohed upon general principles thai underlie all punlic
school work.
Inspector Miller in his opening address said that teachers
too often fail lo rightly appraise
the obstacles in tho way of Hie
best success of their work. He
thought that persons with the
energy and ability that tho acquisition nf a lencher's license
Indicates, should be able to discern anil overcome Ibe dilllculties
which present themselves. He
implied lhat many teachers do
not take their work seriously
enough.    Perhaps be is right,
Mr, Kyle, drawing master of the
Normal School, kept emphasizing
the fact lhat the training of the
hand, and eye, and the artistic
taste play in the commercial development of a nation.
If Brilisli Columbia is to become a great manufacturing
country, our boys and girls must
be taught to make things not only useful, but beautiful, for trade
demand this.
Dr. Young, Ihe minister of education, struck, perhaps, the
deepest note, when be said that
one large duly of the public
schools is to exalt the ideal, to
prevent our people from becoming sordid dollar hunters.
Not altogether for the knowledge gained, but for the inspiration there is in meeting people
who are enthusiasts in one's own.
kind of work, tho convention at
Kamloops was worth the money
it cost.
