Commissioner Maber Says That Early Action In
Matter of Railway Belt Lands May
Be Expected.
Commissioner Maber, appointed by
the Dominion government to investigate
the matter of the Railway Belt Lands,
has now completed his investigations in
the Revelstoke district, and left on Monday for the south.
Interviewed by a representative of the
Mail-Herald prior to his departure, Mr.
Maber said as follows:
I am of the opinion after going over
the ground that there is land here which
should be made available for homestead
entry, thnt is land which has been logged
off by the Lumber Companies and some
land whichdoesnotcontain merchantable
timber. How much there might be I
cannot say at the moment. There are
some cases which we will have to send
our timber cruisers over in order to ascertain the section lines uf tlie logged-off
lands und to decide caaea of dispute,
in which the licensees and myself differ
as to the value of the timber. Before
any lands can be withdrawn, it is provided by the Timber Law that the licensees shall be given sixty daya formal
notice by the Department, It will,
therefore, be two or three months, or
perhaps 11 little more, before 1 can get
around to final action, but the whole
matter is now in course and we will
make progress.
1 have taken note of all cases.   They
. are more numerous then I expected,
Tho timber on the land and  the value

'    me and who are experts in these lines,
so that their quality as claimants is a
matter of exact  record.   Some   have
done very good work and have placed
valuable improvements on the land.
The squatters have no rights. They
are men who have gone on the land
without a right to do so. In so far as
tRe Homestead Law is concerned, they
are simply trespassers. A squatting
Situation has grown up here because of
the scarcity of hind and because such
logged -off land as there was suitable
for settlers seem to have been unduly
slow in coming out of timber licence,on
that account I bave some sympathy for
the case of* the squatters of this valley.
Prom what I have seen of them I think
the majority will make good settlers.
The department has more or less discretionary power with respect to such claims.
it is, however, for the purpose of terminating this system of dealing with our
lands that we are making the present
investigation and settlement. The claims
which the squatters are now asserting
are really claims created by trespass.
They are not in accord with our Homestead  Law or policy.   Hereafter such
A Good Fish Story.
Here's a good one that comes from
the mill.
Walter Lammers, the mill superintendent, caught a salmon and gave it to
Gus Kujula, who attached it by a piece
of hay wire to the end of the dock and
let It float in the stream to keep it fresh
till he got through work.
Along comes John Hlyna and sees a
fine salmon heading up stream close to
the end of the wharf. If he goes after
a spear he may be too late. With the
nearest weapon, which happens to be
an axe,;he decideB to capture his prey.
Cautiously he approaches, as a good
fisherman should, and raises his ax to
strike. The stroke must be quick and
true for the salmon is a nimble fish.
In a moment the blade has fallen and
John is assured of a good supper. The
ax was sharp and the salmon is cut in
But to John's surprise the fore part
of the fish remains in position, headed
up stream as before. About this stage
of the game enter Gus Kujula. Kujula
talks FJnn and Hlyna talks Dutch, so
peace negotiations were about as slow
as between Turkey and Italy. At
time of going to press we are not
able to state the amount of indemnity
agreed upon.
squatting will not be recognised nor
permitted. We will draw the line between timber berths and timber lands
on the one hand and homestead lands
on the other hand. The timber will be
removed and suitable lands opened up
as promptly as is reasonable. But the
department and not the squatters will
hereafter be the judge and the authority in these matters. To secure a rijht
to a piece of land the applicant must get
an entry from the land office in Revelstoke or Kamloops. He does not get
any right or prior claim by applying either verbally or in writing. He only
gets the right when the land agent accepts his fee and issues him a certificate
of entry. That is the provision of the
If between now and the time of opening of lands any squatter goes on land,
he will lose his improvements. The land
he goes on will be disposed of as if it
were not squatted on, and the squatter
will be forced to remove. I will not be
able to make another lour of inspection
before the lands are opened forthe purpose of inquiring into squatters claims.
So far as new squatters' claims are concerned the matter is ended. The old
ones will be dealt with by the department on their merits. The situation
with respect to lands in this valley calls
for this action, and that will be the
policy which will followed with respect
to this valley. Officers of the, depart-
jtojutKWV ( * < UkkUm] a'xl/nst.i-icb:vi
to keep the lartds clear'usingauch means
as are necessary.
As to the squatter who goes on land
o:i which there is actual timber and
which valuable on that account, there
Oldy one or two men of the sort. Their
action is not only illegal but is impertinent. There should be no public support of such cases.
This question is a difficult one. You
certainly have a beautiful valley here
and one which will be heard from in tlie
future. The small holdings policy which
seems to find particular favor in Revelstoke, is a policy which involves limitation of the ordinary homestead idea.
That is to say, its ultimate success depends on the development of (the land
by a competent class of farmers, whose
efforts ure directed tu specialized forms
of agriculture. I cannot say at present
that 1 am prepared to recommend that
a homesteader should get less than 160
acres. I intend to make some further
special inquiries with respect to it. I
would not advise that anyone take for
granted what the decision of the department will be in the matter.
Exhibition of Nerve.
Not long ago B. Clifford of Scotch
Creek Flats had an experience that
most people will not envy him. He was
out hunting in the country back of
Crowfoot Mountain, a summer resort
for grizzlies, who favor It on account of
its altitude, its climate, and its delightful seclusion which autts their retiring
Some times they take little notice of
visitors and at other times they stand
ready to receive them with open arms.
An old she bear with a numerous family
saw Mr. Clifford coming long before he
was aware that he waa watched. As
he approached she evidently got suspicious that he might be a kidnapper, or
or cubnapper, and wanted to catch her
babies and hold them for ransom.
On the principle that attack is the
best form of defence, without issuing
any ultimatum the mother bear made
for the intruder. It was then the hunter first discovered that he was not alone.
Seeing the huge grizzly bearing down
on him at a furious rate of speed, he
decided to consider it a belligerent act
and equivalent to a declaration of war.
WiU Weigh Cars Here.
The Adams Kiver Lumber Company
began on Tuesday to use their new
track scales. Formerly can shipped
from Chase were weighed at Revelstoke and the weights forwarded by
mail. With an annual business exceeding three thousand carloads it 1b a distinct advantage to have the weighing
done on the company's own premises.
R. }. Miner haa secured the contract
for painting Senator Bostock's new
store at Ducks.
With-nerve and address called for by
the occasion Mr. Clifford got his gun
eeady for action, while all the while the
apace between him and his enemy was
growing narrower. When the distance
had shortened to a few yards he fired
and the career of the fierce monster
was stopped just in time to prevent
this story from having a different ending' The cool nerve of the hunter had
sa^ed the day.
Beside this one Mr. Clifford got four
other grizzlies and a caribou, which is
going some for one expedition.

Provincial Authorities Will Furnish Blasting
Powder Free of Charge.   Direct Money
Grant May Also Be Made.
A despiitcli from Victoria states
tbnt the Department of Agriculture
baa sent notice to the agricultural
societies and farmers institutes thnt
it is prepared to issue supplies of
stumping powder free of cost to
bona fide settlers on conditions tlmt
shall be equitable to both the settlers and tbe province.
The settler who is desirous of
benefitting from this boon can ob.
tain details of how to secure it from
his provincial representative, from
the secretary of his Agricultural
Society or Farmer's Institute, or by
direct application of the Minister
of Agriculture.
The suggestion hns been made
that the Goverment should assist
settlers by a direct grant. That
suggestion is under consideration.
If the results of supplying free
powder do not give the return ex.
pooled, then further nction may bo
considered by the Government. In
tlie meantime the present step is
one distinctly in ndvanco. It is
one that has been taken by no other
province and is proof of the desire
of the Government to extend its cooperation to tlie settlers where it
can be done to tho public advantage.
Capf. Armstrong of Golden was registered at the Underwood on Friday.
Death at Pritchard.
News has reached the Tribune of the
death ut Pritchard of one of its moat
prominent citizens, Mr. J.T. Hutchinson. Mr. Hutchinson died nn Monday
of heart failure following a Bevcre attack of pneumonia.
The deceased came to Prltohard
from Manitoba a little more than a
year ago and purchased a hundred
acres of land from W. P. Pritchard
close to the C. P. R. siding. He .soon
became one of the most prominent
residents of the district, taking a
leading part in all public affairs.
Last spring he opened a general store,
the first in that locality. In the
death of Mr. Hutchinson the district
loses one of its most progressive and
public-spirited citizens.
The loss of husband and father will
be keenly felt by Mrs Hutchinson and
a large family. Mrs. A. E. Boyde
and Mrs. R. J. Denny are daughters
of the deceased, beside several of the
family still living at home.
An excursion party to Celista on Sunday included Mrs. Balmer, Mrs. Keyes,
Mr. and Mrs. Cameron, Mr. McLean,
Mr. Murray Balmer and Miss Sigrid
Sandahl. Mr. Ted Jonea accompanied
the party as far as "The Bluff" and
joined it again on its return. Mr. Jones
reports that Mr. Thompson haa made a
success of the cultivation of alfalfa on
hia place at Celista.
In one way worth noting Chase differs from most of the   budding "commercial centres" that dot the  map of
western Canada.   No real estate manipulators in Calgary or Vancouver aro
lyiug awake nights to wrestle with the
problem of, how the sleeping investor
is going to be saved from the regrets

&{pf a Speculation.
Four years ago, with a million dollar
industry established, with the pipes of
a gravity water system of more than a
hundred pounds pressure laid through
its streets, with electric wireB strung
and the juice turned on, the 16ts on
the main business street were sold on
the market at $75 each. They have1
gone up some since then and are now
worth six or eight times that price, j

boom was nursed by real estate agents.
If any land shark had happened along
in those days when "the chance of a
lifetime" was going to waste he would
have had a feeling akin to those of the
Acadian fisherman who visited one of
the English speaking settlements farther along the coast. Seeing tools
and other things left outside and fish
houses left unlocked day and night he
went home with a story of a neglected
opportunity. "The greatest place you
ever saw," he told his neighbors," lots
of things to steal and nobody to steal
The company that laid out and sold
the townsite did so with the object of
encouraging its employees to make
homes for themselves. Long headed
managers of industrial concerns like to
man their works with a corps of thrifty,
settled down, fHnrl; men, who live in
homes. The Adams River Lumber
Company has wisely hundled its town-
site with this end in view, Inflated
real estate values raise the coBt of living, which in turn calls for higher
wages, ending in reduced profits.
Low Prices and High Values.
Perhaps the point in which Chase excels every other town in the west as a
location for a manufacturing plant is
the low cost of living when there is
taken into account its superior advantages as a place to live in. If there is
any other town in British Columbia
with graded streets, sidewalks, electric
lighting system, water supply and fire
protection equal to those of Chase, that
can show such reasonable real estate
prices and such low taxes, the writer
would like to hear about it.
While the prieea are low the values
are high, and the aim of the business
men of Chaae is to keep things on that
basis. They aro not here mainly to
get rich on tha increase in values but
to prosper by building up the business
of the town. Soberly, and in the
quietness of thought, they estimate the
future and wait for its promises to
mature, instead of discounting them
for an immediate gain.
Modest, but Substantial.
No extravagant claims haveever been
advanced for Chase. At no far distant day it may have the service of a
second railway, yet it has never claimed
tb be a coming railway centre. In its
abundant wafer power that can be
���:V,eaply. developed it has a valuable re-
!v t.ice, but it is l resource shared t by
l*i$j tjftiOT1 ib-lrwlh-' 83 ihe ijilil cJuii-
ry. Chuse has never claimed to be a
respective wholesale centre, though it
occupies a position of some commercial
advantage at the foot of Shuswap Lake
as the most convenient point of transfer from rail to boat. What is claimed
for Chase is that nature has done its
best and that its citizens are doing their
best to make it a good town to live in,
a good town to work in, and a good
town to rest in after work is done.
More business is coming to Chase,
more manufactures are coming, and
more people are coming. The business
and manufactures will be welcome,
and the people as well if they are of
the right kind. The town wants no unstable or unduly stimulated growth. It
���yants no swollen proportion of real;
estate agents among its population.
Real estate men arenecessary and useful members of society so long as they I
are not allowed to get too numerous.
Chase has no objection, however, to
seeing the flat between the railway
and the lake occupied by mills and
factories. It would be glad to see the
white coal that goes to waste on Adams
River and other streams generating
power to run the plants. The home-
sites on the "Bench Addition" might
well be occupied by the fanilies of
workers and business men. The summer homes of tired city dwellers could
also be made room for, and their presence would not overcrowd the lake
with boats or tho beach with bathers.
Jt Good Home Town.
Chase extends its hand to all these
prospects. It is for the work they
make, for the money they put into circulation, for the life they will infuse
into matters commercial, political,
social, religious, educational, it is for
these they are wanted. While these
things come, as they are sure to do,
the town wants to keep its reputation
as a good town for the man of moderate means and industrious habits.
Young as the town is, there are
many in Chase who own their homes
and have paid for them out of their
earnings since coming here. Men of
modest income are among the number,
some of them men earning three dollars a day or even less. Most of the
business houses, too, have grown up
from a very slender investment. These
results are eloquent of the advantages
of Chase aa a place where a modest
amount ofcash can be made to produce
much in the way of comfort.
J Bright Future.
The   future,   like all futures, has
enough   of   uncertainty   about it  to
Winnipeg, Oct. 15��� H. Maxwell Clark
who has been in Winnipeg on several
occasions during the past twelve months,
representing himself as Dominion Or-
ganizor for the Canadian Highway Association, has no connection with the
body, according to a statement made at
a meeting of the Manitoba Good Roads
Association Friday night by Mr. \V. J.
Kerr. President of the Canadian Highway Association.

his connection ceased on January 3, 1912
as was proved by a statement signed by
him and read at the'meetring.
Mr. Clark was present at the gathering and was given an opportunity to
present his side of the argument. After
listening patiently to his explanation
Mr. Clark was advised to cease from
his activities and that his presence
would not be tolerated at the Canadian
Highway Association's convention, to be
held here this week.
In the opinion of several who have in
the past come in contact with Clark, his
interest in the cause of good roads has
become an obsession and it was considered advisable to publicly repudiate
the self-styled Dominion Organize,*.

Mr. Clark has done a great ileal to prejudice the cause of the Highway Association in many quarters, and has, because of his hasty utterances; created
antagonism in high quarters. The action taken on the initiative of the Manitoba Good Roads Association was hastened because Clark has drafted a program for the convtsntion. He had two
speakers for the four-day sesBion.
J. M. Freymuth secured first prize
and diploma for his tliBplay of aerated

make it interesting. Chase does not
expect to be a metropolis. It looks
forward to a long period of steady,
healthy growth. It does not forget
that some notable industrial successes
have been staged in comparatively
small towns. When the mountains
were built and the valleys carved out
and the lakes fitted to their beds and
the rivers to their channels, Chase waa
put down in the eternal plan of things
for a townsite. The Adams River fixed
ia time of the young town's birth
and one of the hardy pioneers who
blazed the path of civilization gave It
his name, but the town itself is no accident.   It had to be.
And as surely as it had to be it must
continue. British Columbia is filling up.
The process will' not be completed in >
our day nor yet in that of our children,
for the room is here for a population aa
vast aa or vaster than that of Great
Britain, and the resources are hero to
provide them with the means of living.

too hopeful when he says that in twenty
years time two million people will occupy the vacant spaces. A few thousand of them aro coming to Chas*.

It Is aWell-kown Fact
That if the business man advertises he must spend
enough for artistic borders and drawings to attract
favorable attention to his ad., and he must use
a reasonable amount of space to give such illustrations and strong copy a fair show.
At this season of the year especially, copy should
be free from any sus^on of ''ftibt jfeir." Sucfr
phrases as "the best assortment of footwear in
town," "we defy competition," are often not only
misleading, but serve to alienate the trade of
thoughtful people. On the other hand every ad.
should be specific, and should, as near as possible,
give a clear description of the article to be sold.
A business man who works on this system is convinced

Hot Air
There are between fifty nml sixty legislature, in Canada nnd the
United States. Tho police forces are ns strong, and in spite of recent
exposures, probably as houest nnd efficient as they ever were. And
yet robbery and murder are more common than formerly, and seem to
be on the increase.
Good laws well enforced lire worth working for as an aid in pre.
serving pease and order; if thoy aro relied on ns the only, or even the
chief means to tbis end they ure sure to prove ineffective, They work
from the outside and visible but only secondary forces. Thev co-operate
with more important and stronger but invisible agents tbat make for
social order and confidtnee nnd security among those peoples that we
call civilized.
The cause of more murders, robberies, and other forms of law break
ing must be looked for not bo much in any weakness in laws and their
official guardians ns in changing modes of thought nnd feeling. Laws'
never made men good and never can. If there is no other reii-nm for
living on the square than tho penalties for not doing so then the game
is not worth the caudle. Until the aspiration to be something begins
more widely to take its place side by side with the* ambition to get,
something crime must continue to increase. The ambition is wholly
innocent in itself but by itself altogether inadequate to meet the needs
of any but animals. . '

Factor orders are a long way ahead.   The United  Slates St

stock in action and the car.shops are running at full capacity,
What does that moan In you? The material destinies of all of us are
affected more or less by the ebb and flow of the tides of big business.
For tlie workman better times moan steadier work and perhaps higher
wages. Fin* the tradesmen they moan more money in Circulation, an
incseasing volume of Biiles and easier collections. It is up to everybody  to moot  the  rising  tide of  prosperity  half  way.

On Wednesday an admiring group of the leisure class in search of

The lady editor gz this column is
some two or three thou -and miles from
the Tribune office. Communications
and questions to the column will be welcomed, though the necessary time must
be allowed for them to be answered.
The Tribune is not responsible for
opinions expressed by the editor of the
"Woman's Column."
A wise woman said that being happy
is being interested. Did she live in
Boston, Massachusetts? That city affords every experience except that of
ennui. The dearest, most original
cranks alive are to he found there. At
the public meeting of a certain club we
one day heard an aged speaker declare
he was no spirit, only an animal, and
looking at him we could not doubt he
spoke the truth. The man who followed
him in his dreams remembered his
former existences, and confided to us
that the night before he had recollected
having helped build the pyramids of
Egypt. The next speaker was ti
bewitchingly attired, cheerful little
woman, who was able without notes to
give us reminiscences of her three former lives, or soul expressions.
bostonians are greatly interested in
philosophies of life and its mysteries.
Many, however, still prefer to take
these as we took pills from our mothers,
carefully hidden in a spoonful of luscious
preserves. Hence the large attendance
at the theatres.
During our week in Boston, at the
new St. James theatre we saw Thais,
with Nance O'Neil as star. Thais is a1
courtezan of Alexandria, evil, beautiful, alluring. All the young men and
maidens follow in her train, Bacchanalian orgies are the regular thing
throughout the city, and of these Thais
is the centre. In vain the priests try tu
stem the tide of her wickedness, for no
sooner does she fi�� them with her glittering eye than the more susceptible
ones succumb to her charms, while the
holiest shut their eyes, put their fingers
in their ears, and run from temptation
to the desert.
But in this enchantress, unknown
even to herself, is something deeper
than the love of voluptuous pleasure.
The soul of the woman calls to the
soul of the holy Daniel in the desert
even while in Alexandria she is making
life a holiday with her courtly lover
Nicias. Priest Daniel, who is working
overtime at holy offices to efface from
his memory the seductive imago of
Thais is wakenen from sleep by a
vision which the audience also have
the privilege of seeing, Slim, snaky,
shining, Thais stands. Is it the. soul
entreating a holy deliverer, or the woman seeking to enthral another captive to her body's loveliness? Daniel
thinks it is the former, his brother
monks and the audience are pretty
sure it is the latter. Nevertheless he
hastens to her house in Alexandria with.
his worn face and monkish garments a i
trange figure among the revellers "to j
save the city from Thais and Thais.
from herself." Outside her gate he
waits, and his spirit calls her, calls her,
until she leaves her handsome lover
and the other gay trifles and follows
Daniel into the wilderness. Here is a
touch of nature and a splendid piece of
acting at the same time. The love of
Nicias, for the body only, withers as
such loves do at the first breath of
jealousy. He shrewdly discerns the
man's heart under the monk's garment,
but he, utterly fails to comprehend
Daniel's spiritual passion. "Take her,
take the dregs I have left, but hear me,
monk, if you take Thais you take a
harlot." But Daniel knows better.
I take a saint."
Henceforth Thais is the strong one of
the two, She holds Daniel true to his
spiritual purpose while b,e guides her
over the desert to the convent of the
White Sisters. Six months later, when
he finds her dying and abandons himself
to earthly passion and sorrow, she
again restores him, and passes on in
peace. "0 miriclel that I should be
called of God to save Thais, the courtezan, to the end that I might be saved
by Thais, the saint!"
Quite a pull on the emotions, isn't it?
Yet how well this old wold tale illustrates our every day experiences! The
strange laws of attraction which,we are
beginning dimly to recognize, and which
for want of a better name we call telepathy, thought transference, magnetism
are the hidden forces which give the
play life, and being. We see their
action in the half unconscious appeal of
Thais' better nature while she lives in
sin, in Daniel's response, in the compelling force that draws her to him as
he watts at the gate, and in his appearance during her mortal home in answer
to her spirit's call. Perhaps these
very forces cause you and your friend
in the east to write to each other at the
same time about the same thing. "I
hadn't thought of you for a week,"
said a lady to me recently," until this
morning, five minutes before you rang
me up on the telephone. For that five
minutes you seemed forced upon my

The laws of balance are also brought
home by the play. Thais, having
squandered her heart's substances in
riotous living couldn't have the normal
woman's happiness in home, husband
and children. Had there been a "lived
happily ever after" denouement any
sane audience would have been disgusted. ��� That the life may be symmetrical the license of the courtezan
must be balanced by the devotion of
the Baint. The pendulum that has
swung too fur in one direction must
swing as far in the other before it
comes lo equilibrium. In this is no
tragedy, it belongs to the eternal order
of things.
That night at the theatre we felt the
universal recognition of woman as
man's moral protector, Daniel's saving
of Thais was incidental, one uf the
deeds of a purely aspiring life torn by
strong passions; the saving of Daniel
was Thai's crowning act, the purging
of her shame, the root from which
should spring the blossom and the
fruitage of her soul.
