SS.OO Per Year
Marks of Violence on   Face and
Head Indicate That Crime
Was Committed.
Who was the man whose dead body
was found in Little Shuswap lake near
Chase laat night?
That ia the question which ia causing
the local and provincial police much
study at the present time.
The body waa found in the water at a
point near Squilax. Two Indian boys
made the discovery. They notified
Constable Harris and the body waa
brought in and anchored at a point west
of the government wharf. Monday
morning an inquest was held by Corner
The man had evidently been in the
water a long time as the body was badly decomposed and the hair nearly gone
from his head.
How did the body get in the lake?
How long has the body been preserved
by the cold waters from the mountain
streams which have daily been raising
the water in the la ke? At what point
did the body get into the take?
There is a strong suspicion of foul
play. The entire upper right side of
the face is mutilated. The right top of
the skull is gone entirely. It is a gruesome sight. Was it an accident? Did
he fall into the lake, and have the logs
and driftwood and ice jams thus mutilated the head and face beyond recog-
nation? Or was the man foully murdered. Was his head chopped and beaten
with an ax, spade, club or other instrument? WaB he robbed and thrown into
the lake?   One stocking and both shoes

in that missing sock. Or did the man
commit suicide by shooting himself
with a shotgun? He might have done
that. Dr. Scatchard thinks the deed
was committed with a shotgun, whoever
may have held the gun.
Many theories have been advanced.
The coroner's jury consisted of Messrs.
Jos. Barry, Dave Macdonald, Chummy
Cummings, W. H. Bohannan, George
Herbert and Ben Bradskreu. Their
verdict was an open one. They did not
attempt to fix the cause nor the blame
for the man's death.
The man was about 5 feet 4 inches
tall. He was well porportioned and
evidently a fair athlete. His hands and
feet were small and the former gave no
sign that he had been used to hard
labor. His coat was missing and he
wore a pair of overalls over a pair of
store pants. He wore no undershirt.
His necktie had been pulled nearly off
his neck and one sideof his celluloid collar was unfastened
The lake has given up its dead. Let
the law proclaim who it was. And let
it fix the identity of his slayer if possible. Meanwhile the body lies in the
potters field amidst the unknown and
unhonored dead. And what does the
Infinite care? The dust has returned to
its natural element and the soul���well,
what of the soul.
That C.P.R. Hotel.
Here is the item that has gone the
rounds of the provincial press: "A large
hotel to be built at some point on
Shuswap Lake is stated to be on the
program the Cauadian Pacific Railway
intends to carry into effect in the near
future. Many sightseers prefer to
travel only in daylight through the
mountains and as some of the most attractive scenery in the west is that east
of Kamloops it is intended to make the
daylight mn, both east and west, terminate at a suitable point west of Sicamous and east of Kamloops. It is understood the location will be found on
Shuswap Lake and' Chase is named as
the possible location. Sicamous hotel
is too small for the purpose intended.
The new hotel proposed will have accommodation for 300 persons."
Dam Camp.
There was a dam big' wind at the
Dam camp last Tuesday. Giant trees
were uprooted and overturned. The
telephone line was put out of commission. And the gallant little Hesperus
nearly met her fate that night. A large
Cottonwood tree fell, miBsingthestaunch
little ship by only about afoot as she
lay at her mooring at the dock.

Open Air Concert At End of Government Pier Sunday Evening Was
Well Received By People,
The Chase Brass Band achieved a signal triumph last Sunday evening. The
occasion was the first bi-weekly summer entertainment by the band. It
was well attended; the music was grand;
and the public spirited citizens came
through to the tune or $11.00.
Manager Thos. Gordon and Director
James Allen had arranged an entirely
well selected program. Each number
was a happy revelation to the audience.
The band is making wonderful progress.
They are going after that new music aB
though it was ABC for them and they
are mastering it like professionals.
Next Monday morning the band will
assemble at the wharf and embark upon
the launch Old Reliable for Notch Hill.
They have been engaged to play at the
Notch Hill celebration.
It is the intention of the band to hold
concerts on the dock every two weeks,
weather permitting, throughout the
summer months.

The Old Reliable.
John Brown took a party of his friends
up to Celista Sunday. Of course he
chartered the Old Reliable and of course
Commodore Jock Haldane and Captain
Jamie Allen, those staunch Caledonians,
were at their respective stations. In
the party were: Mr. and Mrs. George
Chase, T. J. Kinley, John Brown, Billy
Wicks, Wm. Brown.
A stop was made at the home of James
Thompson and several hours were spent
at the Brown Bnd Fowler landing.
On behalf of Chase Brass Band we
wish to thank the citizens of Chase
who so kindly donated the sum of $11.00
at the concert last Sunday evening.
Wm. T. Gordon, Manager.
amidst the cairn and dignified silence
that prevails when a community is deeply moved. Red is one of the salt of
the earth. He says he is going to
make soup on an ocean liner. It will be
seasoned with limericks if he does,
for Red's peotic nature will not down.
He was connected with the news gathering staff of The Chase Tribune and his
breezy style had a fragrance all its own.
Wherever you may go, Red, our best
wishes follow you: Keep your head
cool, your feet dry and don't overload
your stomach���or if you do, write some
poetry and get it out of your system.

Two Broken Arms.
Dr. Scatchard had a busy afternoon
Tuesday. He set two broken arms
within an hour. Mrs. James Edwards
fell from a horse and broke her arm.
And little Robert McLean fell off a
cracker box and broke one of his arms.
Both patients are doing finely and the
arms will be as good as ever when they
come out of the slings.
For the First.
Chase people are preparing to celebrate the First of July in the various
towns that are putting on celebrations
that day. Some of them will go to
Armstrong to see thebirdman fly in the
Wright aeroplane. Some of them will
go to Salmon Arm; some will go to
Notch Hill with the band; and some
will go to Revelstoke with the baseball
team.   Those of us who   are left in
An Apology.
We wish to apologize to the young
man upon whose straw hat we stepped
one night last week while wending our
homeward way down the lake road,
Hereafter we will take the track during the lallygagging season.
Mr. H. Mowat of the Kamloops Steam
Laundry was in Chase last Friday making arrangements to bring his family
here for their summer outing on the
L. Cumming, Sec. Tress. | shores of the Little Shuswap lake.
Beautiful Sunshine.
An interesting letter In connection
with the Bunker Hill gun has been written to a local paper by Colonel Neillson,
the president of the Quebec Literary
and Historical society.   It clears away
good deal of the confusion, and adds
color to the theory that the inscription
to the effect that the gun had been captured at Bunker Hill was placed on it
by a subaltern.
In the letter Colonel Neillson  says
The so-called Bunker Hill gun has engaged the attention of the press and
the public for some weeks. The real
story of this cannon appears to be unknown. I am one of the few remaining
who do know its history, and therefore
feel justifiedin making a statement coning it."
Colonel Neillson then goes on to say
that the gun always belonged to the
English and waa only styled as the one
captured at Bunker Hill to make it interesting to American visitors.
Chase Will Have One Of Pleasantest
Gaols In Western Canada and
Everybody Is Welcome.
Chase is to have a $20.00 court room,
constables quarters and lockup. The
contract for building same has been
awarded W. F. Barnes, Sr., and lumber
has been delivered on the ground ready
for the building to begin. A force of
carpenters will be put to work at once
and the structure will be rushed to completion.
The building consists of a court room,
a tier or four cells or cages, a stockade
for the prisoners to take their exersise
in, living rooms for the constable and
his family if desired. The location decided upon is on Shuswap avenue ih the
block west of the Underwood hotel.
When completed the structure will present an entirety neat and business like
The dimensions are 24x56. The building will be set up on ceder posts upon
concrete base.
Without boasting, we may say this
will be one of the pleasantest jails in
Canada. Located as it is on one of the
principal streets of a beautiful little
city on the shores of a most delightful little lake���who can imagine a more happy
place to spend the summer holidays?
The Chase Invincibles will go to
Revelstoke on the First of July for the
purpose of wiping up the earth with the
base ball team of that city. That they
will do it no one doubts for a moment.
Harry Law, the rotund and urbane
manager, Bays the players are all going fine now. On a first class diamond
there is reason to expect a great deal of
improvement over the class of baseball
served up on the lawn.
More Men Are Needed to Operate
Big Plant of Adams River
Lumber Company.
The big mill of the Adams Rim
Lumber Company at Chaae is running
full time now. The night shift waa
put on several days ago. It is not a
full shift as yet, owing to the scarcity
of men, but aa fast aa help can be secured the force will be increased to tha
This is going to be an exceptionally
good season for the mill. Salea Manager Brooks reports over 200 cars booked ahead and it haa been neceaaary to
call in the traveling salesman from Edmonton, Calgary and Moose Jaw. Both
saw mill and planer will have to be
kept running full capaciety all summer
to keep up with the orders. The output at the present time amounts to
about six carloads a day. Later thla
will be increased to twelve cars daily.
The payroll of the Adams River Company amounts to $20,000 a month. This
includes the men at work in the mill
and on the drives tributary to Chase,
As the season progresses and logging
begins, the payroll will be greatly increased. It is estimated that the operating expenses of the company, running
full crews at the mill and in the woods,
will amount to about $3000 a day. That
1b what the industry means to Chase.
At present the Adams River people
are operating four steamboats on the
Shuswap and Adams lakes. Also, they
have two gasoline launches in commission, one the 25 h. p. Tillicum.

There are not wanting authorities
who rise to the defense of Ihe Cockney
speech, as was evidenced a year or two
ago when the London County Council
passed a resolution recommending measures that would drive the dialect from
the schools of the English capital. Then
appeared a certain Mackenzis MacBride,
who put forth various pamphlets and a
book to show that Cockney is no modern
dialect or corrupted form of the King.s
English, but that it has an ancient and
honorable lineage running back for
nearly a thousand years.
Mr. MacBride points out that when
the individual "who was born within the
sound of Bow Bells" says "thet" for
"that," "benk" for "bank," and "by-
liff" for "bailiff" he is guilty of no corruption of the English language, in aa
much as these pronunciations have obtained not only in London, but in Kent
and Surrey for hundreds of years.
In like manner are justified "abaht"
and "abtside" for "about" and "outside." It is further contended that
many Londoners have been laughed out
of these ancient and excellent pronunciations, and Mr. MacBride earnestly
urges them not to change their speech
by reason of any un-called-for animadversions againBt it.
Whether Mr. MacBride be correct or
not in hiB contention, the fact remains
that Cockney has survived for many
centuries in the midst of speech that is
deemed more cultured. It is a curious
fact that in the Bahama Islands, which
were settled more than two hundred
years ago by Londoners, the Cockney
dialect is as strong as it is in Cheapside.
Mr. G. Y. Spring was a visitor in
Chase from Vancouver Friday. He
represents the Canadian Fairbanks-
Morse Company and was here looking
after his trade, which he reports as being in a flourishing condition.
A wedding was solemnized at the
Catholic church in Chase Monday morning. Rev. Fr. Wagner officiated. The
contracting parties were Mr. Thomas
Simpson and Miss Charlotte Annis Mary
Lovelet, both of Turtle Valley.
The bride wore a white taffeta silk
dress and a white net bridal veil caught
with orange blossoms. She was accompanied to the altar by Mrs. Thomas
Gahan. The groom was dressed in
brown and played a lone hand.
The newly wedded couple have many
friends in Chase. They will make their
future home in Kelowna.

"a | RED. unwinking eye stating
^\J at bim lixedly from oat of
Impenetrable gloom, an ogre-
lab. gleaming thing tbat

waa dead tn front of him, on a level

aound fell from bla lips. He strove
to move, to fight bimself away, but
there waa no power of movement In
hla limbs. Tbe eye grew larger. Ha
aaw that It was ho bright It cast a
halo, and the halo widened before
hla own staring eyes until the dense
I gloom about It seemed to be melting
away. Tben he knew. It was a lantern In front of bim, not more than
ten feet away. Consciousness flooded
bim, and4 be made another effort to cry
out to free bis arma from an Invisible dutch tbat held him powerless.
At first be thought thla was the clutch
of human bands. Tben aa tbe lantern
light revealed more clearly the things
about him and the outlines of bla own
figure he aaw tbat It waa a rope, and
he knew that he waa unable to cry
out because of aometblng tight and
au-Tocattng about hla mouth.
Tba truth came to him swiftly. He
had come up to the coyote on a sledge.
Some one had struck htm. He remembered tbat men bad half dragged
htm over tbe rocks, and these men
had bound and gagged bim and left
him here with the lantern staring him
in tbe face. Rut where waa be? He
shifted hla eyea. straining to penetrate the gloom. Ahead of him Jnst
beyond tbe light there waa a black
wall. He could not move bla head*
but he aaw where that same wall
cloaed In on the left He turned hla
gaae upward, and It ended with that
same Imprisoning barrier of rock.

He knew now what had happened.
He was Imprisoned In the coyote, and
the sacks about him were filled with
powder. He was sitting on something
hard���n box���fifty pounds of dynamite.
The cold sweat stood out In bends on
his face, glistening in the lantern glow.

wnrnlng of Meleese burned in his
brain, "Tou must go tomorrow-tomor-
row-or they wll! kill you!" And this
was the way In which be was to die.
There flnrned before his eyes the terrible spectacle which he had witnessed a
few hours before- the holocaust of fire
and smoke nnd thunder that had die-
ntpred a mntntnln. a chaos of writ tain tr. twisting fur*, nnd In that moment
his heart seemed to cease Its heating.
He closed bla eyea and tried to calm
himself. Was It possible that tbere
lived men so fiendish us to condemn
him to this sort of death? Why bad
not hla enemies killed bim out umong
tbe rocks? Tbnt would have been
easier, quicker, less troublesome. Why
did they vdsh to torture liim? What
terrible thing had be done? Was he
mad, mad, and tbis all a terrible nightmare, a raving and unreal contortion

death question after quest Ion raced
through his bend, nnd hi* answered no

note. He could not reach the fuse because of the thong about his ueck.   ���
He felt for his knife. He bad left It

fiery, creeping thing on tbe floor, and
crushing his bead back against the
sacks, Howland sat for many minutes
as if death bad Iu reality come to him
in tbe moment ot bis deliverance.
After a time, with tedious slowness,
he worked ti hand Into his trousers

It took him a long lime lo saw through
the rawhide thong about bis neck.
After that he cut tbe rope that bound
bis ankles.
He made an effort to rise, but no

Half an hour Inter a mass of rock

WHITE      WOMEN      Or      SOUTH
Illicit Sale of Drink to Brutal Natives
Ont Cause of Growing Evil
Johann.'8bi:rE.���The black peril
scare has once imre act ita seal on
Johannesburg. This time almost %
condition of panic prevails.
Vigilance committees are springing
np all over tho plade, and the gun*
smiths are reaping a harvest. Women
are devoting themselves to revolver
practice, and the Daughters ot the
Transvaal, a local body of female
volunteers, who divide their time between ambulance work and amazonlc
mlUtar.sm, are extending their sphere
of usefulness so that non-members
may learn how to use firearms and
practice Jiu-jitsu.
In Turffonteln, a thickly populated
suburb of Johanessburg, a woman was
not only attacked by unknown Kaffirs, but was carried from her room,
where she was sleeping with her baby
to a plantation 160 yurds away. A few
d.ya after the outrage she died from
Similar instances, although fortunately unaccompanied by fatal results,
are occurring not only tn the Transvaal, but lh the Orange Free State
and Cape Colony.
Ths Government Apathetic.
In spite of this reign of black terror, the Botha government does nothing to show that tt haa the welfare of
the community at heart. For this
reason the people of Johannesburg
are taking the law Into their own
hands. Kaffir drives are becoming a
constant occurrence.
The black peril la the most a-i-iall-
Ing menace to nur white women
which the mind of man can conceive.
There have be��n several drealful
cases reported recently, the details of
which are too hnrrlble to record, and
many more cpaftr 0f frustrated attempts on whlto women nv Kafirs.
but the worst "wpp of all has hc^n that
which occurred n^out a fortnleM pro
In a Johannesburg suburb, the victim
of which sucenm^d to the shock. A
suspect is in rjri?-m, and clrcu*n��tan-
tial evidence mnv enable the lew to
avenge the ter,,vln crime but there
can be no identification, for the victim Is dead, anil ��ven had she ben-t
alive Kaffirs are so much alike that
sbe could well be excused if she failed to identify on�� or other of her assail ants.
A wave of intense bitterness against
tbe Kaffir is, nno-'-tg, over ;t.h<* land-
Vteilance societies are being forme*.,
and many person* are counselling
lynching. All this points to a condition or affairs so erave that men and
women are obliged to carry loaded revolvers, with the full Intention of using them without compunction In circumstance such as are of but too
frequent occurrence.
Causes of the Evil
A frequent caup�� of this evil is the
employment of Mack men in household duties. But there is another
class equally daring and equally to be
dreade'1.. There are nearly a quarter
of n million natives employed ln the
gold mines In and around Johannesburg. TheBe men are kept in compounds like so many prisoners, and in
the demoralization of these natives
a certain class of unscrupulous white
men and women engage. They supply the native (Illicitly, yet successfully) with liquor, for which the native haj an unquenchable longing. It
is these half-drunken natives who
commit fearful attacks on white wo-
m^n and murderously assault each
It is. however, because of the unnatural life these natives lead that
crime Is so rife among them. It the
vast available tracts of land near Johannesburg and the Reef mines wer**
secured as native locations, where the
men could brim, their native women
tn live, there would be less of the
black peril. B '^[hts means expense
to the mines, anu the Idea Is tabooed.
There must be no mercy shown to
thla clt-ss of crime. The Justice
meted out to the depraved brutes
who assault our white womon must
In common fairness, be applied to the
degenerate white men who similarly
attack black women.
Colleagues Make* Fatal Mistake In
Fight With Apaches
Paris.���A painful sensation has
been caused in Paris by the death of
ex-Detective Monteil in an affray in
Mont mart re.
Detective-Inspector Battestl, followed by a mob of male and female
apaches, was arresting a woman,
when che shouted: Help! Murder! He
wants "to kill me"
Hearing the shouts. ex-Detective
Monteil, under a misapprehension,
rushed up and threw himself on the
Inspector. The latter, thinking him-
seTf attacked by a friend of the woman, shot his agf"-essor in the stomach, at.d M. Montoll fell to the ground
mortally wounded.
The crowd of apaches then fell on
M. Battestl and Inflicted wounds
which may prove fatal. A young
apache was seen by a chauffeur to
draw a long knife and plunge It Into
the breast of the detective as he lay
on the ground.

There is one cIbbb of uieu who have never been fully appreciated ���
probably because they are bo little known to the public at largo. That
class is the lumberjack or rivenlriver���the slough pig, the moose cat.
The general public knows the rivenlriver only as it sees him at
play; when he is through his work and comeB to town. They know
him for a rough and rollicking fellow who apparently has no thought
of the hereafter, dosen't care, dosen't have to; one whose chief aim in
life seems to be getting rid of his surplus coiu and causing the distil
leries to put on night shifts.
But the riverdriveron the job is a different sort of fellow. When
he takes his life and his pike pole in his hands and goes out to "cuff
the round stuff" he is sure some picture of heroic manhood. There
is no thought of fear or frivolty in his mind then. His eye is on the
index all the time and his heart and soul are in his work. Follow him
all day, thou mild-eyed fashion plate from the effect east, and we'll
guarantee that your laundry bill for the ensuing week will cost you
It is honest work, that cutting the big trees into log leughts and
driving the logs down the river. And the lumberjack is an honest fellow. He calls a spade a spade ���or possibly in the heat of excitement
he might call it a damned old shovel. His language may sometimes be
more emphatic than elegant, but his heart is always iu the right place,
the Sisters of Charity and Mercy who visit the woods once in a while
will tell you that. The lumberjack's hand is always in his pocket to
help a worthy cause.
There are real heroeB among thein, too.   How often have we seen
a couple of drivers chopping away at a key log in a jam.   A misstep
tf\ift'l��J�� ta.jfljnjJJitJ.rLlight moment, might menu a crushed limb or
��  tne snuffing ont of life's candle.
Once we saw the bodies of a couple of young fellows brought to
town. They had been drowned at a dam where the water waB high and
the gate was stuck. To go on with the drive the gate must be raised;
to raise the gate a timber muBt be chopped away; to chop away the
timber somebody had to take a chance with Death. The foremen would
not allow married mtn to try it. Those two lads volunteered to chop
away the timber and release the gate. They did and their bodies were
picked up ou the meadows a mile below after the flood had subsided.
They might have jumped to safety, but the waters bent them to it.
They were riverdrivers and it was all in a day's work.
Who is there iu Chase that can make a red cedar chest and make
it right? If there is such a mechanic here ho ought to make a neat
little fortune for himself within the next few years. A red cedar chest
is a Bource of joy and contentment forever to the man who is fortunate
enough to own one. Some day they will be a curiosity. There are only
a few places in the country now where the red cedar tree flourishes.
And no place does it flourish as it does iu the country north of Chase.
The workman who can make a good chest���make it just a little better
than nnyone else��� can find ready sale for his product. Aud, by judicious advertising��� mark you those words well, gentlemen��� by judicious
advertising he will build up for himself not alone a fortune, but a reputation which is more valuable than gold or silver.
There are many wnys of advertising a town aud every little bit
helps. Launch owners can do their part toward the advertising of
Chase by simply having the name of their boat and the name of the
town painted on the bow. The example set by Mr. Aylmer of the Public Works department is worthy of emulation. "Athel of Chase" it
readB, and wherever the little launch is seen the name and fame of
Chase lias begun to spread.

Cheor up, Armstrong! You are getting u lot of mighty good advertising out of it even if you have to bug up that fifty thou. When it is

way east. He will go from there to
Penticton on a short business visit.
Joe Johnson, Perry Leek and John
Haldane made a trip to Hennesey Arm
last Monday. Mr. Johnson remained

work on mining claims.
A. J. Lammers who has been spending some time at the Adams River
Lumber Company plant, left Sunday
for Stillwater Minnesota via. Vancouver
He will visit Seattle and Spokane on his
way east.
Mr. C. Mathewson has arrived from

stock conditions, etc,
Mr. D. 8. Mitchell is down from the
Government fish hatchery at Kault.
He is accompanied by his sister and
they are spending a few days visiting

Chas. Todd is in from the Adams
River country for a couple of day's
visit In Chase.
Hon. J. P. Shaw is making prepera-
tions to begin haying on his ranch in
about two weeks. The dry hot weather is maturing the hay at an earlier
date than usual.
Mr. James Stewart, recently arrived
from Scotland with his family, has purchased a couple of lots from Capt. Barry and will immediately begin the erection of a dwelling. He likes the country better and better as his residence
here continues.
Celista will gain a resident during the
coming week and may possibly gain a
furniture store. Mr. Harry E. Noakes
of Victoria has written the Adams
River Lumber company for information
regarding the transportation of his
household goods to Celista from Chase,
Also he has asked to know if there is a
furniture store in Celista.
Thomas McGowan came down from
Celista Saturday in Harry Fowler's
launch, having in tow the new St. Lawrence skiff made for George Barnes of
Monte Creek. Mr. Barnes was here
Monday and took the boat home with
him. She is a little beauty. Harry
Fowler is surely an artist in his line.
It is reported that one of the new
ranchers at Adams lake has bought a
herd of goats and will go into the raising of those animals on a quite extensive scale. No doubt that country is
entirely suitable to the raising of goats
and the experiment may lead to the
establishment of a permanent industry
Word comes froni Salmon Arm that
a young man named Albert Simpson
was drowned there on Sunday afternoon
about 3 o'clock. He went in the lake
deyond his depth and was not a swimmer. The body was recovered and an inquest was held, the verdict being that
the drowning was accidental. The
young man had no relatives in this section of the country so far as is known.
H. L. McLean and Wm. Cameron
have returned from a hunting and Ashing trip into the Adams lake country.
They report one helegant time and
brought in a couple of the most beautiful sets of chin whiskers we have seen
in a longtime. Also, they claim to have
caught the second largest fish ever captured in Adams lake. It was a Dolly
Varden and lipped the scales at 24
pounds, me.-uring S3 Inches over all.
Messrs. Stewart and Anderson, who
recently arrived in Cliase from Scotland nre more than pleased at their reception here, Mr, Stewart and his son

day following their arrival. They are
engaged at the mill of the Adams River
Lumber Co.
A. J. Lammers, head of the Adams
River Lumber company at Chase, spent
a few days in the city last week. He
says that there is more truth than
poetry in the rumor that the C. P. R.
will build a tourist hotel at Chasa.
When the hotel is built the idea will be
for the C. P. R. to establish a boat service between Sicamous and Chase���Revelstoke Mail Herald.
The collection box for the Children's
Picnic is still in the postofflce. By the
way it feels, we judge that it has not
been fattened to any alarming extent.
It wouldn't hurt some of you copper-
lined old war horses to drop a dime or
two in this box and help the kiddies to
have a good time. Feel around for
your loose change. The box will be left
in the postoffice till Monday.
Frank White and Don Macdonald
were out to Fleming lake Sunday and
caught twenty of those beautiful rainbow trout.
Hon. Mr. Alymer of the Public Works
department has returned to Chase after
a visit to the Kootenay country.
The drive is just about over on the
upper river and a bunch of "porkys"
hit town Tuesday and Wednesday. The
Adams River Lumber Company will
soon begin its summer logging operations.
The Tillicum will take a party of
pleasure seekers to Salmon Arm and
Notch Hill Monday morning. Chase
will resemble the deserted village on
that date. Only a few of the best of
us will be left here at home.
Water in the lake is receding and the
summer bathing season will Boon be on
in full force. For the past fortnight
the young kids have been enjoying
themselves in God's big bathtub. They
say the water is fine.
Oil burners will go into operation on
the C. P. R. next Monday. From and
after that date all the locomotives on
the line will burn crude oil. That means
no more smoke or cinders. And the
track is being rock ballasted, which
eventually means no dust and but very
little jar.
Mrs. Walter Lammers and little son,
"Bubbles," leave on tonight's train
for a summer's visit at Stillwater,
Minnesota. Mrs. Lammers will visit
with friends and relatives at St. Paul
and other eastern points.
The Ladies Aid Society gave an ice
cream and cake social on the lawn of
Mrs. Thomas Leadstone last night.
There was a good attendance; the ice
cream and cake was skookum and the
ladies cleared up a tidy sum for the
good of the cause.
Commodore Haldane expects to take
a party of Chase young people up to
Celista tonight on the Old Reliable.
The Celista people are giving a farewell dance in honor of Miss Middleton,
They have invited some of their Chase
friends to join them.
The following pupils left on Tuesday
for Salmon- Arm to write the examinations for entrance to high school:
Arthur Gahan, Gerald Bradley, Mer-
tina Bradley, Jean Haldane and Harry
Bear For Sale.
Who wants to buy a tame dear?
The Chase Zoological Graders have one
for sale. It is a grizzly and has been
tamed to such an extent that it will eat
out of your hand. Sydney Jellette is
the man to see. He can tell you all
about the bear in less than a minute.
We may say that the bear has very ladylike manners���for a bear. No doubt it
will be a heap of comfort to some one
who loves animals.
Many Changes.
Not every London high school boy who
goes away to seek his fortune conies
back with the rank of Cabinet Minister.
Hon. Thomas Taylor, Minister of Public
Works in British Columbia, government of Hon. Richard McBride, who is
a guest of Dr. H. J. Ferguson, 288
Princess avenue, remembers London
chiefly as the scene of his boyhood days.
Hon. Mr. Taylor is a native of London township, but attended High School
and the Yerex Commercial school in this
city. Later he studied law with Taylor
and Taylor.
Mr. Taylor's constituency is Revelstoke, and his home city is Victoria, the
seat of Government. There is a big
railway construction programme ahead
in the coast province, and much for the
Public Works Department to do, so
that Mr. Taylor leaves shortly for the
About 2,000 miles of railway Is to be
built in British Columbia this including
the Canadian Northern, Grand Trunk
Pacific and Pacific Great Eastern, as
well as C. P. R. extensions.
In the residential district of London,
Mr. Taylor sees great improvement in
the 27 years of his absence, and in the
business section are, of course, many
fine blocks which did not then exist.
"Where Dr. Ferguson lives waa all
common in my time," said the visitor.
"Victoria," said he, "has now a population of about 30,000, and Vancouver,
where thero was practically nothing
twenty-five years ago, is now a prosperous city of 160,000 population."���

Proposition of Spending Government
Money Is Up to the Citizens
of Chase.
Do the citizens of Ciiaae want a main
street leading down to the Government wharf? Do they want to use the
money appropriated by the Provincial
government for the purpose? If they
do they had better get busy forthwith.
The question of how to spend the $1460
of Government money set aside for
Chase is now right up to the "voters.
It is up to them to say something and
the quicker they say it the better it
will be for them.
Road Commissioner White and Provincial Engineer Ford were, in Chase
laat Thursday afternoon. They said
they came to inspect the work ami jet
an expression of opinion from tbe risen, as to where the money shoul' te
spent. They said further that ti y
were ready to begin operations at on ".
But no street or road improvemei 11
have been made as yet The road com-
misBioner is still waiting for the people
of Chase to tell him where they want
the money spent. -S~~
A special meeting of the Board if
Trade was called on Thursday afternoon by President Andrew McConnell
for the purpose of going over the matter with the commissioner and his engineer. Right off the reel Mr. Engineer
White blasted the fond hopes of many
Chase citizens by telling the meeting
that it would cost many many thousands
of dollars to put Shuswap avenue in
shape to take care of the traffic.' Mr.
J. P. Shaw, M.' P. P. was in attendance
and followed with the assurance that
it would likely be many years before
Chase would have that much money
coming from the provincial government.
Then Mr. White the commissioner
suggested that the proper thing to do
was to spend that little fifteen .undral
on the side streets and sidewalks and let
the big job go till later on.    Jf ,.
But there are those in Chase' who iti
that the crying need of the town atthi
present time is a main thoroughfare
that will let people in and out of town.
They feel that Shuswap avenue should
be graded from the Government wharf
to the C. P. R. depot. Ablest amongst
the champions of this cause is Andy McConnell president of the Board of Trade
He differed with Mr. Ford regarding the
price it would cost to put that street in
shape to be used. And he suggested to
Mr. Shaw that Chase was a growing
town and that her tax assessment was
creeping up year by year; that already
Chase has paid in a neat little sum of
money to the Government; and that up
to date but very few dollars have been
expended here in public improvements.
Mr. McCcnnell's views on the mutter
were apparently entertained favorably
by a great majority of the citizens present at the meeting. The prevaling
sentiment seems to be that Shuswap
avenue is the street most in need of attention; that the thing to do is to put it
in shape as soon as possible so as to accommodate the growing traffic from the
The following committee was appointed to secure an expression of opinion
from the citizens and ratepayers: H. J.
Haylock, Dr. Scatchard, Andrew McConnell, Thos. Gordon, Chas. McLaughlin, B. W. Sawyer and A. S. Farris.
A later conference will be held wilh
the road commissioner and engineer.
A New One.
The launch Evelyn pulled up at the
ChaBe wharf Sunday morning for the
first time. She was put into the water
at Celista only last week. Harry Fowler built her and he has a good right to
be proud of his achievement.
Win. Hudson is master and owner of
the Evelyn. He handles Ker as he
would handle a favorite child or a pet
pony. And the little craft minds him as
a dutiful child would obey its fond and
loving parent. Mr. Hudson and his wife
were visitors to Chase Sunday. With
them in the Evelyn, in the capacity of
helmsman, came Mr. Frank Munger.
The Evelyn is 24 feet long with a
five-foot-eight beam. She is built of the
best material to be secured in the west,
She is equipped with a 7-h. p. gasoline
engine and can go just aa fast as she
wants to. The launch has a cabin and
withal is indeed a thing of beauty and
should remain a joy forever.

To Settle Claims.
As before stated in these columns the
Dominion Government has decided that
all outstanding squatters' claims In the
railway belt must be settled without
further delay. With this object in view
Mr. S. Maber of the department of the
interior, Ottawa, has been sent out to
go into the whole subject.
Mr. Maber will examine each claim on
its merits, and will report to Ottawa.
' Many of the land claims in the railway belt are In a somewhat tangled
condition. The land for a long time was
treated by the . Dominion Government
just as if it were prairie land, each
homesteader being allowed to take up
160 acres.
The result'was that the settlers could
not perform the required settlement
duties in the way of cleaning and planting the land. Consequently the crown
grants have never been issued. In
many of these cases settlers took up
land in good faith some years ago, but
have never cleared more than fifteen or
twenty acres, the rest of the land being
still primeval forest. Mr. Maber will
look into these cases individually, and
will recommend whatever justice seems
to require.
In other instances, many have settled
on forest land without any Berious intention of making a farm, but only to
hold a valuable piece of property.
These also will probably be treated as
justice requires. Outside of sections
where irrigation is necessary, it appears
very little land is available for home-
steading in the railway belt. It has
either been taken up or else it is heavily timbered and held as timber limits by
the government.
In places where it has been logged off
settlers have gone in, but in these cases
also their title is doubtful, and the
crown grants have not been issued.
Royal Typewriters.
Queen Mary, if she had not beet,
born in the purple, would have been
an able typist. She can tap-tap the
keys ol her typewriter with her royal
fingers as quickly and as well as any
professional. King George is also ab'.e
to manipulate a typewriter, though
he doesn't use it to any great extent
Many British peers have their own
machines and frequently type their
own letters. Lord Rosslyn, for example, is the envy of many typists, the
speed and accuracy with which he
can use a typewriter being well above
the average. When he was captured
during the Boer War and taken to
Pretoria, he edited, printed, and published a typewritten newspaper with
the machine be had taken out with

After  Fourteen   Month*'   Hearing  a
Verdict Will be Reached at End
of Jun.
Aome.���After over fourteen months')
exceedingly strenuous work the great
Neapolitan Camorra trial at Viterbo
for the ruocolo murders is actually,
ntaring its close, and the verdict may
be expert ed about the end of June.
Two hundred and seventy sessions
of the court have already been held,
despite of every effort made to shorten the abnormal length of the trial.
The president has struck off the list
of witnesses all persons who were
likely to give a political turn to the
notorious affair, while Commenda-
tore Senatora. the crown prosecutor,
gave an admirable example of brevity to the legion ot lawyers claiming
the right to speak by restricting the
duration of his oration against the
Camorra to twenty days. Some of
the prisoners have half a doien lawyers defending them.
Hardly any newspaper la fully reporting the later stages ot the trial
owing to the demand on their apace
by tho Itallan-Turco war. The parliamentary deputy, Slgnor Arthur
Vecchlnl, the most famous criminal
lawyer at the Italian bar, Is about
to close his long oration ln behalf of
Errlcone Alfano, the supreme thief
of the Camorra. His speech Is proving a model ot forensic eloquence.
-ttte^ the trial began on March,
1911, fourteen of the arrested members cf the Camorra have been let
out of the steel cage and given their
liberty because they had actually
served the maximum penalty which
the Italian code could Inflict should
th.jy be pronounced guilty.
Two of the released prisoners are
women- Two others, Valcarel and
Pasquale Garglnln, died from heart
disease within a fortnight of their return home to Naples.
Public opinion, which at the outset
was decidedly against the accused,
has now veered round ln their favor,
owing chiefly to the tedious length of
the trial and th" magisterial hearings
vl.ich began six years ago.
