Mr, T. C. Hornby of Valentine, Nebraska Inspects Property of Adams
River Company,
Who has been created a Knight Commander of the Most Distinguished Order
of St. Michael and St. Qeorge by His Gracious Majesty King George V.
HE people of this  province will be
* willing to forget party politics long
enough to join unanimously in congratulating the Premier of British Columbia
on receiving the honor of knighthood.
While the leader of the Government enjoys the affection and complete confidence of his political comrades and supporters, he has also gained and retained
the respect and personal goodwill of
those who differ with him on public
questions. British Columbia does not
tei.ve it to other provinces nnd countries
to discover her ablest and most deserving men. The honor that has now been
paid to the First Minister by his Sovereign follows remarkable.expressions of
confidence from the people of h.B native
province, in which members of both

Sir Richard McBride has found in the
service of this province a sufficient scope
for his ambition. He has declined to
leave this sphere of activity and usefulness to engage in what some would call
the larger political life of a federal statesman. There are attractions to a man
of his capacity in the national field, but
British Columbia has had the greater
need of the best work of her ablest and
more energetic sons. The premier and
his colleagues have in their hands the
development of a domain itself greater
than that of many nations. They have
been at the creation of a new country.
They are now engaged in enterprises
which a few years ago would have staggered the whole Dominion. They are
proceeding with tasks that may well be
called imperial. Sir Richard McBride
has supported and defended the interests
of his province against the strongest
combination of forces, and has carried
the cause successfully to the Imperial
parliament. He has upheld against
powerful odds at Ottawa and elsewhere
the integrity of this province as a home
for white races. Everywhere and always he has shown courage and vigilance
in his support of the interests of his
own land. It is just that such services
that is accorded
If Sir Richard is the first native of
British Columbia to receive the honor
of knighthood, it will be admitted by
supporters and opponents that it is a good
beginning. Not two years ago he showed the late Premier of Canada that he
knew how to render honor and courtesy
to distinguish leader of another party.
Today many who do not vote for him
show that they have the same gracious
impulses.���News Advertiser.

THE name Sir Richard McBride must
live forever in the history ot British Columbia as the patron of the Railroad and the Public School. Party lines
must be forgotten in paying homage
to one who has rendered v such distinguished service to his country and his
"The knighthood of Sir Richard McBride was just as dearly earned and
just as well merited as a Victoria cross
won on a field of battle by any of our
war heroes." That is theway the matter was put by one of the (.render's

it is drawing the comparison a trifle

That is the verdict of Mr. T. C.
Hornby of Valentine, Nebraska, after
inspecting the property of the Adams
River Lumber Company, of which corporation he is a stockholder.
"There is so much here to see," continued, Mr. Hornby, "so much grand,
magnificent scenery, that we are indeed
sorry not to have apportioned more
time to Chase in making out the itinerary of our trip."
Mr. Hornby is accompanied by his
Wife and family and Mrs. Chas. Sparks
and children of Valentine. The party
is making an extensive tour of the
west. They had intended stopping off
at Chase only between trains, but were
sp taken with the place that they decided to stay over a couple of days at
least. And at that they were able to
beheld only a few of the beauties with
which Nature has endowed the Shuswap and Adams lake districts.
Mr. Hornby expressed himself as
highly pleased at the showing made by
the Adams River Company. He is enthusiastic at the future outlook.
While here the party was entertained
by Mr. and Mrs. B. W. Sawyer.
Adams River Will Supply  100,000
Horse Power as Part of
Big Scheme.
As part of its plan for the electri
fication of its line from Calgary to Van
couver the C. P. R. has taken up the
water rights of the Adams river a few
miles from Chase. The river is very
swift and carries an immense volume of
water at all seasons of the year. It'is
estimated that 10(1,000 horse power may
be developed at two different points
along its course.
Sir Thomas Shaughnessy's plan of
double tracking the main line from Calgary to Vancouver is already being put
into operation. The big rock crushers
at Craigellachie and Squilax are completed. Next week will see the work
of track ballasting in progress both
east and west from Chase. As the
double tracking proceeds the grades
will be corrected. Meantime the work
on the various electric power plants
along the line will continue.

A Sunday Boat Ride.
Dennis Sanders took a party of friends
up the lake Sunday for a boatride. The
trip was made in the Old Reliable with
Commodore Haldane on the quarterdeck
and Captain Allen at the wheel. Those
in the party were Mesdames John Mc-
Givney and C. Sandahl with little children, Misses Sigrid Sandahl andPheobe
Fox, and Dennis Sanders. The day
was spent at the boom camp where the
party were entertained by Messrs. Carl
Sandahl aud August Hegg.

The double tracking of the C. P. Jr.""
from Chase to Kamloops and from
Chase to Revelstoke will begin immediately. Tr e big rock crusher at Squilax
has been completed and is ready for
operation. EngineerC. E. Kendall was
here Tuesday and pronounced everything in readiness so far as the crusher
is concerned. All that now remain, is
the placingof the steam shovels and the
work will commence.
As the double tracking proceeds, it
is the intention of the C. P. R. to correct many of its grades. The track will
be rock ballasted the entire distance.
Besides the crusher at Squilax there is
one located ut Craigellachie, now in

No Regatta.
Chase will not hold her regatta on the
First of July as previously mentioned.
At its meeting Monday night the Board
of Trade decided that it were better to
prostpone the boat races till later in ^the
One of the principal reasons for the
postponement of the regatta was  the
fact that Notch Hill and Salmon Arm
are both holding Dominion Day celebrations.   Those two towns turned out good
crowds to the Twenty-Fourth of May
celebration at Chase and it was deemed j.
only proper that Chase and   Shuswar;;
etti_fli__jM'i��a:* chance to help out m
their neighbors  celebrations.   A r'"J,f
lution to that effect was passed by \j
Board of JCrad*.

Board of Trade Presents Facts   and
Figures to Tourist Department
At Montreal.
If Chase does not land that half million dollar C. P. R. tourist hotel it will
be the fault of the Chase Central Board
of Trade. President Andrew McConnell and Messrs. Aylmer and Sawyer
have been appointed on a committee to
look after the matter. They are making it their particular business to see
that the officials of the Canadian Pacific Tourist department shall be perfectly informed as to the advantages of
Chase as a summer resort.
Photographs, maps and data have
been submitted to Mr. C. E. Benjamin,
head of the Tourist department.
It has been pointed out to him that
Chase has the best bathing beach on
the Shuswap lakes; that the fishing is
unexcelled; that the scenery in this immediate vicinity surpasses anything
along the entire line of the Canadian
Pacific; that the Adams lake country,
where big game abounds, is only a few
hours travel from Chase; that boats,
outfits and competent guides may be
secured here; that Chase is situated in
the midst of a fine dairying and agri-
cultual district where fresh milk and
butter and eggs and vegetables are always on the market.
In fact, so thoroughly has the Board
of Trade committee done its work, it
will be remarkable if many of the
angels with golden wings do not put
in their application to St. Peter to
spend their summer holidays at Chase.
At least it would seem well nigh impossible for the C. P. R. to resist building
a hotel here whether they were thinking of adding another or.t to their list
or not.
If God ever made a place especialy
for a summer resort, that place is
Chase. And if He forgot anything in
the perfectness of its appointment it
certainly is beyond the power of mere
man to say what has been forgotten.
Chase Won.
Poor little Notch Hill went up against
the real thing last Sunday when its
base ball team crossed bats with the
Chase Demons. There was nothing to
it from the start. The country lads
simply couldn't solve the delivery of
Hubert Chase.
The home team did not deem it necessary to open up its best brand of ball
playing, but now and then they injected
just enough enthusiasm into the game
to prove that they had the class in
case of emergency. The Notch Hill
first baseman is said to have been all
to the mustard. If his comrades had
been up to his standard there would
sure have been one base ball game alright alright.
The following young fellows registered at the Underwood from Notch Hill:
E. A. McConnell, J. E. Wilson, F. J.
Birshoff, C. E. Vernon, L. G. Barnett,
G. Hammond, R. J. McDonald, J. A.
Lunday, A. Forshaw, Geo. E. Welbanks,
A, Slater, and J.   Lindsay.

Besides the flying machine there will
be a lacrosse game, two base ball
games, horse racing nnd other nt-
tractions too numerous to mention.
The committee on arrangements certainly has done its work well. Special
trains will be run in and out of Armstrong on the First. People going from
Chase can leave here on the limited at

they so desire. There will he a dance

Good Old Crombie.
Cap Nelson brought down a crew to
take the old Crombie up the Inke after
a tow of logs. The steamer has been
repared and is said to be in as good condition as ever, It will be remembered
that she ran into an ice floe laat Bpring
just before the Titanic was sunk by the
ieehurg. The Crombie got off more
luckily than the larger ship, but those |
on board had a mighty narrow escape
from drowning,

Wood is soiling in Chase and Shus- i

Kamloops it brings $4.50 a cord and
the demand is good.

possible be went to the door and entered.
Witb his feet propped in front of tbe
big box stove sat Jackplne.
"Any one been here, Jackplne?"
"Thorne," he granted, pointing to a
paper on the table. Howland spread
out tbe paper In the light of the lamp
and read:
My Dear Howland-I forgot to tell you
that our mall sledge starts for Le Pas tomorrow at noon, and as I'm planning on

A whittle of astonishment escaped
Howland'a Upa.
Jaekpine had half opened tho door,
and for a moment t ���ur
a glimpse ot bis dark, grtunlng face
looking back over his shoulder. He
hesitated, as If about to speak, and
then with a mouthful of bis Inimitable
chuckles, he went <>ut
After bolting the door Howland
lighted n small tahle lamp, entered the
Bleeping room and prepared for bed.
"Uot to have n little sleep no matter

rolled between the sheets

law of tbe camp, and he wondered
more and more at Thome's demeanor
He began to note tbat tbere was a
strange nervousness about Thome

uneasy alertness In bis eyes, as though
he were looking for some particular
face among those they encountered.
"I want Howland to see this south
coyote go up," said MacDonald. "Can

"Certainly," replied Thorne. "Come

Howland fancied that there was a

voice, but be made no mention of It to

The coyote was rendy for firing when
they arrived. The coyote Itself~n tunnel of fifty feet dug Into tbe solid rock

they had finished tbe Inspection.
"We've been at work for three months

With a strange thrill Howland bent

tbe mass of rock looming sullen and
black half u mile uwuy, as If bidding
defiance In the face of Impending fate.
Tremblingly his linger pressed on tbe
little wbite knob, and u silence like
that uf death fell on those who watched. Oue minute���two-three- five passed, while tn the bowels of the mountain the fuse was sizzling to Its end.
Tben there came u puff, something like
a cloud. of dust rising sky ward, but
without sound, and before its upward
belching had ceased a tongue of flame
spurted out of Its crest, and after that,
perbaps two seconds later, came the
explosion. There was a rumbling and
a Jarring,, as it tbe earth were con-

of n thousand great guns rent the air.
As fast as the eye could follow sheets
ot tlame shot out of the sea of smoke,
climbing higher und higher In lightning flashes until tbe lurid tongues
licked the air a quarter of a mile above
the startled wilderness. Explosion followed explosion, some of them coming
tn hollow, reverberating booms, others
Rounding as it in midair. Tbe heavens were tilled with hurtling rocks;

Peter Lund Dead.
The following from the Stillwater
Gazette will bring sad news to many
here in Chase. Peter Lund was well
known here, having formly held a position as camp foreman for the Adams
River Lumber Company:
' 'Peter Lund residing at 919 West Myrtle St., waa drowned yesterday at the
David Tozer saw mill, formerly known
as the Macky mill. He was about 55
years old and leaves a family which includes a son anddaughtei.
* Mr. Lund was working at the mill
pohd, moving logs. Others were near
him. He was missed about 11 o'clock
yesterday morning. A snuff box was
found floating in the water and hia coat
was hanging on a piling near where he
was at work.
Immediately fears were entertained
that he had drowned although he was
not heard to fall in the water and gave
no outcry. It is supposed that he had
laid his pike pole down upon the rigging and was taking a pinch of snuff
when he toppled from the boom stick
into the water.
.Mr. Lund was well known in this city
and elswhere in logging camp. He was
formerly foreman for Lammers Brothers, for the David Tozer company and
for a time foreman in logging operations for Otis Staples at Wycliffe,
B. C. Lately he had been working for
David Tozer at the mill where death
came today."
The water guage at the mill Co'b
wharf shows that the water is again
riaing. It reached its highest point this

feet from June 8th to Uth, commencing
to rise again June the Uth and now
registers 7 feet 9 inches. The higest
mark reached last season was 8 feet 5

New. Members.
The Chase Central Board of Trade is
going out after an increased membership. Everyone of the present members
will be expected to bring in an application from a new member at the next
regular meeting or submit to a fine of
one dollar and imprisonment for thirty
minutes in the pie foundry with a muzzle on.
The rule was adopted at the fust reg-
slar meeting in June. At that time
everyone was entirely confident that
getting one member apiece was the
easiest thing in the world. But it
seems that everybody forgot. Only
three new members were reported and
the matter was put off for another meeting. But there will be no backing out
this time. There will either be some
new members or the old members, some
of them, will have to cough up.
Children-' Picnic.
There will be a picnic for the Children
of Chase held some time next month.
It will be under the auspices of the
Presbyterian church, but all children of
the town will be invited. The date will
be announced later.
For the purpose of raising funds for
the picnic a contribution box has been
placed in the post office and those desiring to help along the good work may
drop the mazuma into the slot. The
calibre of the picnic depends largely upon the size of the jackpot, so everyone
is invited to go just as far as they like
in making their ante. Give the kiddies
a good time. It means more to them
now than it will later on.

Tti* Buccaneers.
Originally buccaneers were peaceful
English. French and Dutch settlers lo
the Spanish West Indies, and they received their name on account of their
custom of drying their meat, in ths Indian fashion, on a buccan, or hurdle.
The Spaniards resented strongly the
Intrusion of these foreigners and made
many attempts to oust tbem, but tbe
buccaneers were a hardy- set of men
and crack shots with tbe musket, so
they successfully resisted all tbe Spaniards' attacks and obstinately remained
In ths islands. Wbat It was tbat cause-
ed the buccaneers to abandon their
comparatively peaceful mode of living
and take to piracy It Is hard to ssy.
Possibly tbe constant harrying to
wbicb tbey were subjected by tbe
Spaniards prompted tbem to retaliate;
but, whatever tbe reason, tbelr depredations soon rendered tbe passage of
the Caribbean sea sn undertaking ot

ths word buccaneer has conm down as
a synonym for robbery, murder tnd all

Ottawa, Ont.���The Evening Citizen
In commenting on the recent remla*
���Ion of 50 per cent ot the duty on
cement Bays:
"It le wnolly Improbable that any
further actio:, wiil be taken by the
government In regard to the cement
duty. The action taken in remitting
one-half of the duty Ib considered
generally to be pretty drastic though
certain Interests In the west are representing that It does not go far
enough. '\\e situation which called
for a reduction of the duty was a special case, to meet which exceptional
action hai to be taken. There Is
no reason to anticipate, however, as
hinted In certain qunrters, that it
Is the thin end of the wedge and likely to be further extended as regards
cement or other commodities till there
Is full Inquiry Into the tariff generally."
The Citizen also prints a lengthy
Interview with Senator I.W.C. Edwards, president of the Canada Cement company, In regard to the situation' "The Canada Cement company
has a large surplus stock on hand over
All requirements, on which It would
like to realize," said Senator Edwards
when asked If It were true that the
company, as Is stated, Is unable to
���upply the west with cement.
The senator would make no comment on the action of the government In reducing the duty on cement
one-half for a limited period, nor did
be care to say for publication what
effect the transportation facilities of
the country had nn the delivery of
the company's product.
"There has never been a time when
the Canada Cement company hns not
been able to fill all Its orders." the
senator further said. "The plants
Included in the company were only
running between seven and eight
months of the year when the Canada
Cement company was organized, but
since that time they have been running the full twelve months of the
year. This has given us the opportunity of filling large storehouses
which we have located at various
points In propitiation for the busy
That whatever the othor sixteen cement companies In operation throughout the country might do with regard
to asking te government to rescind
the duty-cutting decision, the Canada
Cement company would take no part
in such an appeal, the president of
the company also asserted.
"There Is one point which has been
overlooked, though," he said. "The
Canadian companies annually purchase a great quantity of paper bags
for cement in the United States. These
bags cannot be had In Canada, and
they are forced to buy there, paying
the full duty. Now, under this order
of the government, United Stutes
manufacturers of cement will bo able
to ship their cement here, paying only
one-half the duty on both cement and
on the paper bags. Whatever else
may be said about.the cut, this will
appeal to the ordinary man as unfair
to the Canadian companies. We
have to pay full duty on the paper
bags while the American companies
can ship them in here, filled with cement, and only pay half duty. The
Canada Cement company may ask
the government, with the other sixteen Canadian companies, for similar
treatment In connection with the paper ba^s, but that is as tar as it will

French    Scientist Claims    He    Can
Artificially Extend Existence
ParlB.��� There is considerable dis-
cussion among scientists In France in
regard to the announcement of Professor Metchnikoff, of tbe Pasteur Institute, that he Is studying the effectiveness of a microbe called "glycob-
actor" as a preventative of old age.
Professor Armand Gautier, who is
% member of the Academy of Sciences
as well as the Academy of Medicine,
end Professor Bertlllon, while admitting interest in Professor Metchnl-
koff's study, are inclined to Its practicability.
Professor Metchnikoff says he has
found a beneficent microbe In the
Intestine? of a dog which, If implanted in the intestines of man, would
probably generate sufficient sugar to
destroy the human intestinal mi-
orobes, which are responsible for the
maladies of old age.

Fort Liard has been received at the

official nature has yet been ascertained regarding the authenticity of

Mr. Brock also stated thr.t 30 parties from the geological survey hud
already gone out to different parts
of the country for survey work.
' Ten more would be sentiout within
the next few days.
In past years we have only had
about 30 partite in the field, he said,
hut the work is developing, and we
find we need more now. This is altogether outside of the parties which
have gone out on ethnological exploration under the ethnological
branch of the survey.

Mr. Marshall bases his predictions

Chase may well lie called the home town���the town of beautiful
. ^ tames and of home-loving people. Very few towns its age can boast
t'/ 'a* many substantial residences as are to be found here. Right from
the Btart the people of Chase have sought to make permanent their
homes in this favored spot. Business men and laboring men alike
have taken an interest in their town and the result has been pleasing.
It is this spirit of home building that goes farthest toward the
making ot great cities. Qutside capital is alright and iB ever acceptable. But the sale of a lot to a man who lives and works in the town
and who will erect thereon a neat substantial residence, means more to
the town than the sale of a dozen lots to the outside speculator.
It is no uncommon thing here in Chase to see men who have worked
all day in the mill or elsewhere, putting iu a couple of hours in the
evening building up for theinself a home. Oftentimes the available
cash supply is short and the man must do his own carpenter
work. In some cases he is assisted by his faithful wife���perhaps she
would hold the lantern for him as he worked long after the evening
shadows had fallen. But the home was made aud they nre now ou the
road to independence. Their children will be torn under their own
\viue and fig tree. The boys and girls will grow up with that divine
feeling of freedom which is forever vouchsafed to the bom freeholder.
The Adams River Lumber Company haa done its Hhare in the
building of Chase, Nottfcloue has it invested its money here and built
up an industry which ranks with the great institutions of the province,
but the Company has gone hand in hand with its employees in the
building of a city of beautiful homes. Always have they extended
credit to the farthest limit for lumber and building material. Possibly
their motives have been a trifle selfish, as whose are not. Certainly the
man who owns his own home is a better citizen than the floater. He
has more at stake; more interest at heart in the public weal, for what
is good for one is good for all.
The spirit of amity which exists between the citizens of Chase is
commendable. No petty strifes and bickerings have cropped up,
Chase is the i ity of Homes.   Also, it is the t ity of Neighbors

Bir Thomas Shaughnessy, head of the Canadian Pacific Railroad,
has given forth the information that the double tracking of that road
across British Columbia will be nulled to completion, The cost to
the company will be iu excess of sixty million dollars, with an additional expense of nineteen or twenty millions for new equipment.
Vice-President Bury has been in thewest for several days taking
careful note of the railroad situation. He has authorized the statement that the C. P. R. will build many "feeder" lines into the boundary country of Britisli Columbia and the states. Certain it is that
that Grand Old Railroad lias no intention of allowing itself to become ossified while the newer roads step in and walk off with the
business. People living along the main line of the C. P. R. may
rest assured that there will be something doing every moment of the
time. A branch line is just as apt to shoot out from Chase of
Shuswap or Pritchard or Ducks or Kamloops or Salmon Arm or Notch
Hill as from any of the other little towns along the route. Cheer up,
auntie, uncle is out after tin.' bear. Aud if he don't fetch bruin's hide,
he may at least bring in a bag of grouse.
Science will not be thwarifidi While the rich and would-be rich
are doing their best to pr.vent the perpetuation of the species, a German professor comes forward with the declaration that ho has solved
the problem of the reproduction of human life without the aid of a
father. Now if Science can go one stop farther und invent something
that will do away with the mother ns well, everything will be lovely.
"Come ui) to 'he Dam Oamp, stop at the Dam Hotel and have a

Mr. Napoleon Liijoie, premier batsman of the American league,
certainly must believe in ''horseshoe luck." He has recently been pre-
sented with a monster horeeshoe made up of 11)0,000 silver dollars.

Government Bee Inspector Says That
Shuswap Valley Would Be An
Ideal Place,

Shuswap last week.   He is the Government bee inspector for this district and
came up to inspect the Apiary of Mr.
J. P. Shaw, M. P. P.
I    At the present time, Mr. Shaw is the
only raiser of bees in this valley.   But
' Mr.    Harris    is    authority   for   the
! statement that the annual income from
jeijrt.mi could be raised in the Shuswap
Hey should be easily in excess of $2000.
'he white clover of the valley is an
Teal honey flower as is also  the wild
inowberry which abounds along the hillside.   Mr. Harris states that the land
in sight from the porch of the Shuswap
hotel should support not less   than  500
colonies of bees.   There are about 50,000
bees in a colony, so it will readily be understood that with 500 colonies at work
there should be something doing in the

Alexander Reid hus recently returned
from a trip to the old countries. He
visited Scotland, Ireland and England.
He attended the great Dublin fair and
stock exhibit. He saw the thoroughbred horses and cattle. He remarked
the fact that buyers were there from
nearly every stock country In the
world, paying fancy prices for prize-
winning stallions and bulls. And he
came home to Canada a greater enthusiast than ever over the matter of
raising thoroughbred stock.
Mr. Reid says that the buyers from
the Argentine Republic seemed to be
most active in the big markets.
Ranchers of the Argentine have evidently come to a realization of the fact
that a thoroughbred cow or horse costs
no more to raise than a scrub, but that
its market value is seven or eight times
as great in many instances.
He says that one of the crying needs
of Western Canada is a better grade of
stock. He confidently looks forward to
the time when the ranchers of British
Columbia will arouse themselves to the
situation and go in for better stock.
Pedigreed goods are just as easy to have
on hand, once a start is made in the
right direction. And they bring so
much greater price that there should be
a real pleasure in raising them.

Macdonald Married
Extra! Word has just reached Chase
telling of the marriage of Mr. C. R.
Macdonald and Miss Mae Corley at
Revelstoke on Wednesday, June 19th
at six o'clock in the morning. They
passed through Chase on their way to
the coast where they will spend their
honeymoon. _._^_____r
Mr. Macdonald is the urbane and
smooth young druggest of Revelstoke
and Chase. He has been posing for lo
these many years as a eonfirmed bachelor. And now he has slipped one over
all his friends. Mac is an uncrowned
prince in his own right, so we will have
to forgive him if he promises never to
do*it again.
Miss Corley was one of the popular
young ladies of Revelstoke. She will
make a good wife. Getting up six
o'clock in the morning to get married
proves that Mac's breakfast will always
be ready for him.

He is. But he is not put on these
big cases simply because he is smart
in a general sense. He is sent down'
because he is a murder specialist.
He has made a close study uf the habits of murderers fur years.
And that explains why Inspector
Blank of Scotland Yard is always
"early on  tbe scene."
But Inspector B. is not the only
specialist at the Yard. There are
forgery specialists, and specialists for
coining, embezzlement, pickpocketing,
and a host of other crimes.
Scotland Yard; in a word is the
Harley Street of justice. In the. Mime
way as you call in a specialist from
Harley Street when you are suffering
from a disease which baffles the-general practitioner, the law calls in a
specialist from the Yard whenever
there is a crime that is particularly
hard to deal with.
The result is seen in clever detectives and in clever captures. The effect is just what might be expected

finest system of police training in the

To look for the specialists is useless; you would never find one in a

appear to be the opposite of what
they are. And in this they succeed
in a way that is surprising.
