The Body of E. J. Coventry, who wis
Drowned on July 8th, is
Found In Adams River.
At about 7.30 on tha morning of
August 5th, the river driven working
on the Adami River found a body that
they suspected to be thct of Edward J.
Coventry, who wm believed to have
been drowmd on July 8th, at tha Dim
Camp, on Adam* Lake.
A coroner's inquest held at Chaae tb*
eame evening proved their theory to be
correct. On Tuesday th. remain! wen
interred In the Chaae cemetery.
Immediately upon finding the body
wedged among the logs word was sent
to Chaae by telephone. Dr. Scatchard
and Constable McLaughlin went up with
R. P. Bradley ln his launch and brought
the body to Chaae, and placed It in tha
basement of J. L. Gollen's boat-house.
At 8 p.m. an inquest was held on the
lake shon by Coroner Scatchard. W.
T. Cordon, J. W. Day, J. Clegg, T. J.
Kinley, J. W. Clifford and R. J. Miner
wen sworn in as jury. The body, having been In the water almost a month,
was somewhat decomposed. The shirt
was almost altogether torn away, and
one sleeve fastened at the wrist was
turned Inside out and over the hand.
Mrs. Coventry had said that he wae
wearing a ring with his initials on it,
and wben the sleeve was cut away from
the hand the ring waa found bearing
the initials E. J. C. The overalls and
boots wen identified by Nels Petersen,
who had been working with the unfortunate man on the day of the accident.
The gwieral build of the body, too, was,
that of Coventry.
The only witness called was Nels Peterson, a river driver in the employ of
the Adams River Lumber Company. His
evidence was very clear, definite, and
intelligently given.    It was as follows:
f was working with the deceased on
the 8th of July, 1912, About 4.60 p.m.
I saw him working on the boom above
the dam at the lower end of the Adams
Lake. I was in the lake above him and
he* was flagging me. I saw him waving the Hag. I did not know what he
was flagging me for but thought he had
some trouble in the dam and he wanted
me to stop sending more logs down to him.
I then went ashore and walked down to
the dam aB I thought he had a jam.
When I got down to the lake everything was all right but I could not find
the man. I went back up to the house
and on my way I met the little girl of
the deceased. I asked her if her father
was at home and she said "no." I
I went back to the dam again and looked
for him down below, but could not see
him. I then went to his house and asked
his wife if he had come home. She
said "no," I went back to the dam
again and looked for him down below,
but could not Bee him. I then went to
his house and asked his wife if he had
come home. She said "no, but he may
have gone to pick some berries." I
then closed down the gates thinking
that he was down the dam. I thought
he might have fallen in. I could not
find him Bnd never saw him again until
the fifth of August, when we were
driving logs down the river, snd found
him in the middle of a lot of logs. I
recognized him by the clothes he had on
and also by a ring he had on his finger.
He was on the sluice-boom sbove the
dam on the day I last saw him alive, and
I was about a quarter of a mile above
him. He was standing on a big piece
of timber which we call a' 'sluice-boom.''
This goes right up to the dam and from
the boom to the dam it is about four
feet high. There is no step ladder from
the boom to the dam. It took me about
eight minutes to get to the dam from
where I was working. I think he was
a man well fitted for the job., He never
complained about his work. I think it
was a pure accident without anyone
being to blame. He had been at that
work for three weeks. I think that no
man could get out if he fell in at that

I, Walter Scatchard, one of the coroners for our Lord the King for the
Province of British Columbia, do hereby declare that the above is a true report
of the evidence given at the Inquest
touching the deathof Edward J.Coventry
Mr. L. H. Lindsay, manager of the
Monte Creek Trading Company, who
was for some years gunnery lieutenant
in the Royal Navy and later captain in
the Royal Mail Steam Packet Co., was
married at Revelstoke oh Friday, August
2nd, to Miss Margaret Joan Brookes,
daughter of Nathaniel J. Brookes, Esq.,
the well-known celluloid manufacturer,
of London, England.
The ceremony was performed by
the Rev. J. H. Lindsay, brother of the
bridegroom, assisted by the vicar.
Amongst those present were Senator
Bostock, Miss Bostock, Miss Jean
Bostock, of Monte Creek, British Columbia, Colonel, Mrs, and Miss Cavendish
and many others.

After a short consultation the jury
returned the following verdict: We
believe that the body found is that of
Edward J. Coventry, and that he came
to his death by accidental drowning at
Adams Lake on the 8th. of July last,
Thus ended the suspense with which
the discovery of the body had been
awaited. On the night and day follow*
ing the accident and for Bometime thereafter diligent, but fruitless search was
made In the river below the dam where
the man was supposed to have fallen in.
Last week General Manager Sawyer of
the Adams River Lumber Co. and Constable McLaughlin searched the beaches
about and below the mouth of Adams
River but in vain.
The funeral on Tuesday was in charge
of the Modern Woodmen of America, of
which the deceased waB a member,
The casket as it lay in the undertaking
parlors of R. P. Bradley, was banked
with flowers, including a cross made by
Mrs. Coventry from flowers that her
husband had planted in the spring.
, In the procession to the cemetery the
Woodmen were followed by the members of the Ladies Aid in a body, as an
expression of their sympathy with Mrs.
Coventry. The services were conducted
by the Rev. George Stewart.

A party of visitors from across the

���it'Away After Lingering
After an illness lasting nearly two
years, the death occurred on August 2nd
of Laura E. Weaver, wife of H. P,
Weaver, at the age of twenty-seven.
The deceased leaves a husband, her
mother, Mrs. Besse, a brother in White-
ville, Ontario, and one child, Bessie, six
years old.
Mr. and Mrs. Weaver came to Chase
in its early days, and as things go in
these young western towns, Mrs. Weaver
might be considered one of our older
residents. Those who have known her
for the past three or four years will remember her as a kind and obliging
neighbor, a cheerful friend, and an exemplary character.
The funeral was held on Sunday afternoon and was very largely attended.
The members of the Ladies' Aid, carrying flowers, marched in the procession
next to the immediate relatives. The
remains were taken from Mr. Weaver's
home to the Presbyterian Church, and
after the service the whole congregation
and many others attended to witness
the last rites at the cemetery.
For her patient cheerfulness during
her long illness, and for her many estimable qualities, Mrs. Weaver will not
soon be forgotten.
It is about six years now since
most of the claims wen first staked.
Since that time the assessment
work done each year has continued
to uncover larger and better prospects. In November laat Messers
Sinclair, Munger, Blair, and Hudson submitted samples from their
claims to capitalists in England.
The samples looked good to them
and they sent an engiueer to investigate. On May 10th. of this year
an option waa taken on the nine
claims above mentioned, with the
present doal aa the result.
So ends the first chapter iu the

A distressing accident occurred here
on Tuesday, when F. M. Sulfa, a brake-
man of Revelstoke, had his arm and leg
broken while the way freight waB shunting on the spur track to the Adams
River Co's Mill. Sulfa somehow fell
between the cars and two wheels of an
empty passed over his left leg just below the knee.
The injured man waa taken to the
Chase hospitsl, where he was attended
by Dr. Scatchard. It was with difficulty
that the bleeding from the severed arteries was stopped. It looked as if the
leg would have to be amputated and it
was proposed to send the case to Kamloops, but Sulfa wanted to go to Revelstoke, where he has a w* "��� and three
children living.
The conductor of the way freight got
orders from the dispatcher at Revel*
stoke to leave his train and bring the
man up. He was given a meet on all
trains and found them all waiting and
a clear track, so there was no delay,
Dr. Scatchard went along to give any
needed attendance, as there was danger
of further bleeding.
At last accounts the leg had not been
amputated, and there was a chance that
if the blood could be made to circulate
through It, it might yet be saved.

Caribou Lodge Instituted
A lodge of the new order of the Caribou Brotherhood was instituted on
Tuesday night in Kamloops.
Messrs. Sullivan, Maxwell, Engeman
and Tait, supreme officers, were present. Mr. C. H. Stuart Wade. F. R. G.
S., publicity commissiouer and secretary of the Board of Trade of New
Westminster, who is the local head of
the order within the province, officiated
at the inatitution.
This order has been inaugurated to
perpetuate the early history of the
Cariboo District and af the pioneering
days in British Columbia. The new
order will preform a service that could
not be done so well through any other
agency. The ritual itself is based on
events connected with the gold rush.
The Caribou Brotherhood should prove
popular among all thoae who appreciate
the heroism of those early days.

It was a life saving expedition thst

So far from being the rescuers, as stated
last week, Mac and Sawyer were themselves among the rescued. When discovered by the Old Reliable they were

Surveyed Track to Field.
Vancouver.���Good progress is being
made with the surveys in connection
with the proposed double tracking of the
C. P. R. between Calgary and Vancouver, according to F. F. Busteed, engineer in charge, who is here from Kamloops to attend the railway commission.
The work from Calgary as far west
as Field, st the foot of the western slope
of the Rockies, is far advanced towards
completion, and no less than five survey
parties are now in the field between
Field and Kamloops. A great deal of
data has been secured, but the exact
grades will not be established until the
fullest data has been gathered.
The undertaking is one of great magnitude, involving the expenditure, it ia
said, of between fifty and sixty million
dollars. In order to secure the best results, the new line will in places diverge
from the existing line, in some instances
for a considerable distance. Wherever
possible, however, the two tracks will
run parallel close together.

a well known fruit grower of the Okanagan, who came down last week representing the fruit growers of that district, to interview the C. P. R. passenger
officials with a view to securing some
concessions in that respect. The pressing need of assisting the fruit growers
of the interior by giving special rates
to pickers seeking employment during
the busy season at once appealed to the
C. P. R. officials, especially as there is
a prospect of a considerable amount of
the crop being lost or damaged if there
is not sufficient help to pick it in time.

his final wordB: "If any lady or gentleman present would like to ask me a
question, I Bhall be happy to answer
them." Then from our ranks stepped
forth H. I. C, suavest and moBt per-

The impression prevails in other countries as well as in Canada
that if a man is working for the yovernment he is a fool if lie tries to
spend the people's money so ns to get tbe biggest possible value for it.
When a public servant bundles his work ns if lie likes to do it, nnd bus
a higher interest in it tban the drawing of his pay, he is a shining exception.
We first got our eye on R. W. Bruhn Inst summer when he was putting a new road through the bush mi Chnse Creek and making a mile
and a half a day with a crew of sixteen men. During the pnst week
Chnse has had a chance to Bee how lie does it.
The quality and quantity of work done by Bruhn's gang is 11 strong
argument in favor of haying road work done by well equipped, experienced men who make a business of it and are given continuos employ,
No doubt good work is. often done by local gangs, and when they
are building roads for their own settlements tney naturally try to do the
best they can for the money. The work now being done at Celista is
an example. They are, however often poorly equipped, and their industry and personal interest in the results are discounted by their lack of
A Victoria dispatch that ln-fore many months elapse it is probable!
that the land in the railway belt of British Columbia will be bunded
over to the province for administration. Information to tbis effect was
brought Jiack from Ottawa by Hon. Thomas Taylor, provincial Minister
of Publio Works, who has just returned from a trip to, )ue popiipioii
capital.       .' . *
"The mutter does not come within the jurisdiction of the minister
of public works," says Mr. Taylor, "and for that reasou I discussed it
only incidentally with the Minister of the Interior while we were talk
ing over some other matters. I gathered, however, that l.e favored
dealing with the laud of the railway licit ns the water of the same area
bus already been deal with ; that is to say, by handing its administration over to the province on the understanding that any revenue derived therefrom over aud above expenses, shall be paid into the Dominion treasury. I have no doubt that the subject will bo taken up by
Mr. Ross.as Minister of Land."
Although nothing official has yet been done, there is little doubt
that the suggestion which Mr. Taylor has brought back with him from
Ottawa will be acted upon iu the near future. The claims of individual homesteaders and squatters in the railway belt nre now being in.
vestignted by S. Mnber, of the department of the interior, and the
understanding is that all of these claims are to be settled without'uu-
necessary delay.
Meantime no more homestead entries in the belt are being allowed
and uo more timb *r licenses are being issued, so that the further development of this whole area has practically been stopped until a proper working basis can be reached.
It is not anticipated, however, that his state of affairs will last
very long.
As soon as Mr. Maber has completed his work, it is understood
tbat the department of the interier will issue a regulation by which
the amount of land a homesteader can take np in the railway bait will
be reduced to forty acres and at the same time forbidding homesteading
altogether on timbered sections, 1
The newtst sport is swatting flies, It is good sport, It satisfies
the thirst (or blood. It trains the eye and makes the hand quick. Nor
do you have to take a day off, nor a week-end, to indulge. After sixty
minutes of hard labor at your desk you can take live minutes for a
bunting trip and return refreshed had exhilarated. " ��
Owing to the increasing popularity of the sport we suggest that
the following be added to the provincial game laws:
An Act to Regulate the Swatting of Flies.
The open season for fly Bwatting shall be from March loth to
December 1st in each year.
It shall be unlawful to swat a fly between the hours of midnight
and 6 a.m.   It is not sportsmanlike to swat a fly when he is asleep.
No hunter shall use a swatter larger that six inches square. It
takes the edge off the sport.
There shall be no limit to the bag that a hunter may take in a
single day.
Females are allowed to be taken as well ns males. Indeed
hunters are advised to follow the good old rule " ladies first."
It shall be unlawful to expose the carcases for sale, but they may
be given to the cat. A diet of flieB helps to reduce surperflnouB
flesh, und to produce in cats the slender, graceful figure so much in
vogue. . ,
The Biggest Little Town on Earth
 Chase,  B. G f.	
That was a significant statement made by Sir William Mackenzie,
as recited iu the news despatches of the day and one which may well
give serious-minded people food for thought.
Sir William's statement wus to the effect that in his judgment
thero is a grent deal more behind the frantic haste with which Germany
is building dreadnoughts than seems currently believed and that in
point of fact there is in it more of a menace to England and better
ground for a German war scan* than most people are aware or are willing to believe,
Such a statement coining from a man of Sir William Mackenzie's
calibre and connections may well be regarded as having much significance. Sir William is at the head of an institution which represents
a hundred millions of dollars at least; ihe bulk of his bonds are held
in England, and no one knows better than lie how seriously his interests would be affected by a conflict between England aud Germany i
or even to what extent they may be affected by serious talk of such a
conflict. If he were the type of man who would be .willing to profit by
the spreading of alarm, his utterance could nol be regarded as having
any such design for the reason that the circulation of alarming statements could have no other than an adverse effect on his every interest.
It must therefore be regarded as certain that he is convinced there is
the strongest reason for his belief, or certainly,, be would not give expression to it.
View it ns yon will, it is undoubtedly n serious statement,

on. "You were us near your death a

said .lean "Within an hour it will be

He led tbe way through tbe forest
again, more slowly and with greater
caution than before. Half'an hour

as Howland's syss followed Its direction be atood throbbing with aaddsi
excitement Lass than a quarter of a
mile away, sheltered la a dip of lbs
plain, wars three or fonr log buildings rising black and dssrtate eat of
the white waste. One of these buildings waa a large stroctare similar
to tbat la which Howland bad been
Imprisoned, and aa be looked a team
aad slsdge sppssred from behind one
of tba cabins and halted close to tbe
wall of the Urge building. Ths drlrsr
waa plainly risible, and to Howland's
astonlsbmsut he suddenly began to
ascend Us side of this walL For the
moment Howland bad not thought of
a stair.
Jean's attitude draw hla eyas. The
frenchman bad thrust blmealf half
out of tba screening bnsbes and wu
staring through the telescope of his
hands. With an exclamation be tarn-
ad quickly to the engineer.
"Look, m'seur: Do yoo sss thst man

from here, m'aeur."
Ths Bgure had stopped, evidently on
a .platform midway np the aide of the
building. He stood for a moment as If
scanning tbs plain between bim and
the mountain, tben disappeared. Howland had not spokes s word, bat every nerve In bta body tingled atrangely.
"Too say Heiress le there?" be
questioned hesitatingly. "Aad bs-
who Is thst man. Croisset?"
Jesn shrugged bis shooldsrs snd
drew himself bsck Into ths bnsh.turn

"Non, m'ssnr. I will not tall yon

yoo to this place. I have pointed out
to yon ths stair that leads to the room
where yon will and Meleess. Too may
cot me Into ribbons for tbe ravens, but
I will tall yon no motel"
Again tbe threatening Ira leaped Into
Howland's eyes.
"I will trouble you to put your hands

your hands with ibis piece of bsbeesh.

"And after that, m'seur"- urged
Jean, with a touch of tbe old taunt,In
his voice nnd stopping with bis back
to the engineer and bla hands beblnd
him.   "After that?"
"You will tell me nil that I want to

tbs thong about bla wrists.
He led tbe way tben to tbe cabin.

Some Facts
About Chase
It is located on the main
tine of the Canadian Pacific
Railroad at the foot of the
Shuswap Lake at its outlet into
the South Thompson River.
It is the outfitting point for
the Adams Lake and Turn Turn
Lake country where Caribou
and Bear are to be found in
It is situated in the heart of
one of the best agricultural
districts in British Columbia, yet
It affords greater opportunities
for the fisherman and hunter
than any point along the line of
the C.P.R.
The bathing beaches here
are admittedly the best to be'
found in the interior. The water
is warm and clear; the bottom
is sandy with a gentle slope
to deep water.
Two of the most beautiful
waterfalls in, the west may be
reached in ten minutes walk
from the Chase station. There
are many more waterfalls along
the streams flowing into the
Adams and Shuswap Lakes.
The Adams River Lumber
Company, located at Chase, employs upwards of 500 men in
the mill and in the woods. A
second large mill is soon to be
erected which will likely more
than double the present pav roll.

the Chase Central Board of Trade, Chase, B. C. ��
