Local  Troop   of   B. C.
Horse Getting Ready
for Camp at
v1      Vernon.
"It's 'a thin red line of heroes when
the drums begin to roll.' "
The buttle call has been sounded and
the brave boys are buckling on their belts
and tightening their saddle girths. Not
for real bloody battle, don't you know,
but for the regular summer encampment where they will be instructed in
the gentle art of killing men and defending their country. This year the encampment will be held at Vernon.
Next year it will be held at Chase���we
Lieutenant J. Cunningham Morris was
here Sunday on his final tour of inspection. Chase squadron of the troop turn'
ed out for church parade in the morning.
Tbey were accompanied by the Chase
R.ass Band. The sermon was preached
by Rev*. George Stewart at Robinson's
hall. Sergeant Blair of Kamloops and
Sergeant Edwards of Pritchard were
abio |irosent.
Se Bea.nt L, dimming, in charge of
the focal squadron will be able to muster nearly the entire command for camp.
Embarki.lion will take placent Shuswap
on next Sunday morning. The following men are expected to report to roll

Sergeant Cumming has been persistent in his efforts to get the command in
good form for the encampment. Chase
troop has been organized but a short
time. The boys will give a good account
of themselves at Vernon. Tbey are a
fine looking lot of fellows and take a
deep interest in the work.

Big Rock Crushers
In Vicinity of
Three huge rock crushing plants are
being erected at points along the line
of the Canadian Pacific railway. One
of them is located a few miles east of
Chase, one ia located at Donald and one
located at Craig Ellachie. TheC. P. R.
tracks will be rock ballasted from Chase
west to Kamloops and from Chase east
to Field.
With the three plants working full
time it will take about three years to
complete the work. When it is done the
stretch of track east and west from
Chase will compare favoably with the
best ballasted taacks of the world. The
scenery in the vicinity of Chase is the
most beautiful along the line of the C.
P. R. It is the delight of the summer
tourist. The green fields and hills, the
lovely lakes, the waterfalls and the
mountain passes all appeal to the traveler and the observation cars on the day
trains are always crowded as the trains
pass through this particular section of
the. country.
And now the C. P. R. has decided to
make the traveler wholly happy as he
journeys through this paradise. Soon
the engines will begin burning oil instead of coal. That means no smoke or
cinders. Rock ballasting the track
means that there will be no more dust.
Also, the roadbed will be smoother and

Notice is hereby given that all premises must be immediately cleaned up,
and all refuse destroyed, buried, or removed from the town. Those who do
not know where to deposit their refuse
can have it done by applying lo Mr.
McLean, who will remove the same for
a reasonable fee, the said fee to be paid
by the householder. All closets must
have lids fixed to the seats which will
prevent the entrance of flies, and the
lids must be closed when the closet is
not in use. Tim pits must also be so
protected that Hies, cannot gain an entrance. No refuse must be thrown in
the streets nor alleys.

Don't Knock.
It is remarkable how easy it 1b to fall
Into a habit of casting reflection on the
character or the methods or the motives
nf some one. Do we ever reflect how
<��is tyjf. grows on us until we rarely
fail to call attention to some defect in
each person who may be mentioned?
It may be without malicious intent; it
may be without any realization on our
part tbat we are detracting from the
good name of some friend or acquaintance; it is certainly without stoppiugto
consider that we are doing ourselves
an injury, for these things must sooner
or later react on the accuser���whatever
their effect on the accused. If we
could avoid making rents in the character
and reputation of our neighbor, .at least
with such care as we would now avoid
making rents in his or her garments,
there wonld be fewer cases for the
conrts to decide. Most of us are quick
to protect the tangible property of a
friend, but we ofttimesallowthe flames
of insinuation to distroy a good name
with never an effort to extinguish them.
Such condition will come only when
the unkind or thoughtless remark is condemned by public and private opinion,
at least to the extent that we now condemn the destruction of goods and chattels that belong to another. It will be
brought about when we realize that we
cannot hurt others without hurting ourselves���that helping others is the one

ting in the three rock crushing plants
mentioned. Chief Engineer C. E. Kendall has been in Chase while overseeing the construction of the plant located
just east of town near Squila*. Superintendent Fred Bownes in charge of the
plant has a crew of about twenty-five
men at work.
The rock is picked up along the line
of the track and brought in to the crusher on flat cars. The rock is dumped
over a large grisly, which consists of
rails placed a couple of inches apart.
The fines from this grisly are about the
size of a hen's egg and are ready for
ballast as soon as they are washed.
The rock that passes over is taken to the
crusher by means of a belt conveyor.
The crushed rock falls on a set of steel
plates placed at an incline and over
which water is constantly flowing. The
larger rock from this crusher is about
the size of a hen's egg. It is washed
and goes for ballast. The fines are conveyed on to a second set of screens and
and plates. These screens save everything larger than a field pea, while the
sand is passed on to the waste dump.
The larger rock is used for the bottom
ballast on the railroad and the finely
ground rock is put on last to fill in the

Float is not a periodical. It is a book
containing 86 illustrations all told, and
is filled with sketches and stories of
western life. It tells how a gambler
cashed in after the flush days of Sandon;
how it raind In New Denver long after
Noah was dead; how a parson took a
drink at Bear Lake in early days; how
justice was dealt in Kaslo in '93; how
the saloon man outprayed the womeu in
Kalamazoo, and graphically depicts the
roamingsof a western editor among the
cent belt. It contains the early history
of Nelson and a romance of the Silver

Cruising Timber.
Mr. I. J. Treado, chief cruiser of the
McGoldrick Lumber company of
Spokane, has been in Chase and vicinity
for the past week. In company with
Andrew McConnell he made a trip
through the new block of timber purchased by the Adams River Lumber Co.
Both gentlemen report having seen some
fine timber on the trip. Mr. Treado
has recommended that the tract be
thoroughly cruised.
The Dreamers.
A nation owes a great deal to its soldiers, sailors, explorers, and administrators, and for that reason we shall
probably have s great deal to say a-
boet thero; but you must not imagine that it owes all to them. Even
in what men call practical achieve
ments, the dream generally goes before the deed, though in most oases it
ia the doer and not the dreamer who
receives the reward of fame.
Still, the dreamers have their plaoe in
the building of Empire aud the
mouldidg of national character, and of
these dreamers perhaps the poets are
the most important, I may be wrong,
but I think, if it were possible to
measure such things, that you would
find tbat Mr. Rudyard Kipling has
had more tn i with the malting 6f

And, besides all this, the word said is

the deed done; tbe singer not infrequently makes the soldier or the

Alexander Reid Is Back  In Chase
After Visiting British Isles
Several Months.
Alexander Reid arrived in Chase
last Tuesday evening and in stopping
at the Underwood hotel. He has spent
several months visiting in England,
Scotland and Ireland. He returned on
the Donaldson line steamer, Athenian.
Mr. Reid was formerly government
log scaler stationed at Chase. He resigned some months ago. He has many
old friends in Chase and he knows the
town has a wonderful future.
While in Dublin he heard the news of
the Titanic disaster. The city was
stirred to itsdepths with excitement and
sympathy. There were many Irish
people on the ill-fated ship. Coming

Fort George, B. C. May 11,  1912.
Editor Chase Tribune,
My Dear Pal:
1 don't know your name, but you're
there with the goods. Your second issue blew in today like a whiskey sour
in the middle of the Sahara. Glad to
see another Tribune born. .^Everybody
on this sheet wishes you well,
Yours to a cinder,
W. R. Gordon.
Think of it. A whiskey sour in the
midst of the burning Sahara of the
morning after. Imagine a mountain of
cracked ice in the center of a molten
sea. Oh you Fort George bunch. We
know you now. You are the original
boosters. And that's why you're going to have the second best town in
the province some day.
But come on down to Chase when
you feel lucky and we'll have Mr. Smith
make a funny cartoon of you and put it
in the paper. Also, we'll take you out
on the lake some afternoon when the
fish are not biting too ravenously. The
same medicine is good for fish bites as
is used for snake bites.
Mr. J. P. McGoldrick of Spokane
und Mr. A. J. Lammers of Stillwater,
president and vice-president of the
Adams River Lumber Company, are
visiting in Chase. They expect to
spend some time here und are making
a thorough inspection of the extensive
holdings of the company.
Perhaps on their present visit thoy
are more interested in the new 25,000-
acre tract of timber recently purchased
tian they are in their original holdings.
There is said to be some mighty fine
timber in that bunch. .
However, the mammoth lumber man-
facturing plant located here at Chase
comes in for a fair share of consideration from these lumber magnates. And
their lugging operations up Adams lake
and in the Turn Turn country will not
pass uimot ccd. They are doing business on un extensive scale, are these

Home From Coast.
Mr. and Mrs. Elmer E. Brooks have
returned from their visit to the coast.
They spent a few days in each of the
following towns; Vancouver, Blaine,
Seattle, Port Orchard and Tacoma.
Also, they paid a visit to Spokane, capital of the Inland Empire.
The trip was one of business for Mr.
Brooks and a pleasant vacation for
both of them, On their return to Chase,
Mrs. Brooks was accompanied by her
cousin, Mrs. George Bow of Vancouver,
who will spend several days here.
Speaking of polltices down in the
states, Mr. Brooks says that the pres-
took a course 70   miles  south of her i <*nt campaign reminds him more of a
regular route, and even at that there
was much ice encountered. For
several days the captait did not desert
the bridge. Extra lookouts were put
on every time ice was scented.
Fertile Soil.
People coming up from the night
train Tuesday were surprised to note
that several large trees had sprung up
at the entrance to Shuswap avenue
during their absence. J. P. Shaw explained it by statins that the fertility
of this soil is little short uf marvellous.

A trip is usually a means to an end;
one wants to get somewhere. But not
always. There was a litt.e girl who
said she liked to ride with oxen better
than with horses because the rides
were longer.   We understand, little girl.
All good things have an end, and
sometimes they end in betrier things.
It would have been so this time had
there been any better things, but this

The Caribou Brotherhood which was
organized at Asheroft on Jan. 31st. last
is being received with mucn favor all
over the province. The following words
of appreciation are from a well known
gentleman at Victoria who is well versed in the history of the early days in
the Cariboo country.
"I am exceedingly interested in the
Caribou Brotherhood; and more particularly perhaps because the story of
the discovery of the Cariboo placer has
ever fascinated me. It is so full of human interest;���so thrilling that it grips
the imagination and stirs the heart'

hath sworn, say
thought so Bhall
as I llllVr  purpot
(Pb. cxlx, 89; Kl
24). The more we meditnte upon Him
and upon Bitch wt rds concerning Him
tho more we shall become like liim
In word nnd deed. Beholding as In
a glaBs the glory ot the Lord, we^tall
be changed into the Bame image irom
glory to glory ns by the Spirit of the
Lord (II. Cor. Hi. 18), and thus be
more manifestly children ol our Father who is In heaven.
This cannot be till we have been
born from above and have thus become children of God, standing before
Him In His righteousness, as we
learned last week. James In his epistle Is as clear about the new birth
and the manner of It as Is Peter or
Paul or our Lord Himself (Jas. I, 18,
22; I. Pet. 1, 23; John III), but the
Spirit through .Tamea lays special em-
phasle on the need of a manifestation
of such words and workB on the part
of saved people that those who cannot
read the heart, as God does, may see
in daily lite the reality ot the faith
that saves. If a company ol believers are asked to repeat the verse beginning, "This Is a faithful Baying,"
It would be an almost unheard of occurrence lor aome one to ask, "Which,
please?" but with one consent ail
would repeat I. Tim. t, IS, and not
one in titty or a hundred would think
of Tit. Hi, 8, for It seems to be almost
an unknown saying, but It Is so lm-
Trortant. James' great point in ohep-
ter II la that a mere word of mouth,
a mere "say so," does not amount to
anything necessarily; it must be a
heart word, which will show Itself in
the life, lor "with tha heart man be-
Ueveth unto righteousness, and with
the mouth confession is mads unto
Miration" (Rom. x, 10). In our lea-
son he speaks of the power of tha
tongue tor good or aril and usee as
illustrations a great oreature like a
horse controlled and turned where tha
driver pleases by tha hit in his mouth,
and also a great ship guided by a
very small helm. Even so the
tongue, though a very small member
of the body, can accomplish a great
deal ot good or evil, and while many
kinds of creatures can be tamed, tha
tongue can no man tame or woman
either. But there is one who can sud-
due and control it. It Is not right
that from the, same mouth there
should flow sweet water and bttter,
and If the Lord Himself la the fountain In us It will not be so, and He
tan stop the other fountain from which
the bitter comes. Salvation la wholly
ot God, whether it be the gift ot eternal life or living out that Hie day by
day. We are aa utterly helpless In
the one as In the other. He must
do It all. Hals ours to receive Him
and be saved and then to let Him
rule In ua. As we yield fully to Him
we find that He 1b able to subdue.
If Job, who Is mentioned In connection with tbe last verse of our
lesson could under very great trial
reject his wife's proposal that he
curse God and die (Job Ii, 8), there
is equal grace for every tried one,
and God Is able to make all graca
abound toward us that we may have
all sufficiency In all thlngB (II. Cor.
lx, 8). Our tongues will be used by
Ood or the devil as we yield to one
or the other, as In the case of Simon
Peter (Matt, xvl, 18, 17, 22, 23). "He
that keepeth his mouth keepeth his
life." And "Whoso keepeth hla
mouth and his tongue keepeth bis
soul from troubles" (Prov, xlll, 3; xxl,
23). It Is "/ell to act often, according
to Pb. xxxvlll, 13, "I as a deaf man
heard not, and I was as a dumb man
that openeth not his mouth." It ll
well to pray always (Pa. xlx, 14; oxll,
1). Self confidence we must always
avoid, but when weak and 'consciously
so we will And hli graoe sufficient.

Weekly Oram Letter Supplied by
Thompson, Sons A Co., Grain Merchants, Winnipeg.
Winnipeg, May 8. ��� The event
of the week In the wheat markets has been the issuing of the
May crop report of the Agricultural
Department of the United States Government. Ab explained In our last
week's review the May crop report
gives an estimate ot the condition of
the growing winter wheat on May 1st,
and the acreage whtch may have
been abandoned owing to the amount
of damage done by winter killing. By
the beginning of this month It was
well known Irom the investigation
and reports ot private crop experts,
and from the crop reports ot the agricultural officials of individual states,
that tha damage by winter killing to
tha wheat crop sown last fall, waa
abnormally large, but there Is always
a disposition on tha part of everyone
Interested in such matters to look
upon tha Federal Government's report
aa tha most impartial and decisive
pronouncement on tha situation. Tt*'
report waa Issued yeatartay (rem'

In Its flgit-er ra'Jier different front
general expectations, hut In the deductions made frctn Its figures the In-
dlcuttd proLable yield was not grtat-
ly different from expert estimates previously published. General expectations had pointed to an abandoned
acreage of from 5,000,000 to 6,000.000
acres and a condition of around 76,
but the government report gave the
indicated probable yield at harvest as
only 37it.714.000 hu. The acreage estimated to have been sown last fall
was 3_,_13,000 acreB and the exact
acreage abandoned Is 6,463,000 acres,
leaving on May 1st to come to harvest 25,744,000 acres. Last year the
percentage of condition was 86.1 and
tho Indicated probable yield at harvest
400,009,000 bu. Tho government estimate of final yhld after harvest last
year wbb 431,000,000 bu. The probe-
blltty Is that the- final yield this year
will show an average decrease from
the May estimate of Indicated yield,
bo that there Is every prospect of this
year's product let of winter wheat In
tho United States being tbe smallest
for many years. The report also
gives some details as to the condition of Bprlng plowing and planting
In the Bprlng wheat states, and these
all go to confirm the backwardness of
the season and the delay to seasonable
spring work. From other BOurccs we
have further reports and evidence
thr-.t there will be a considerable decrease In the acreage under spring
wheat tn tho Dakotas nnd Minnesota
for tho present season. Several things
combine to cause the decrease. There
Is the decreaao In plowing last fall
owing lo had weather, and there arc
tho high prices for corn, oats, barley,
flax and potatoes. Thero Is the dlf-
ficullt-y of getting real good seed
wheat owing to so much of last year's
spring wheat being badly frosted nnd
damaged by the abnormally late and
wet harvest Benson. There Is the
natural Inclination or desire which
has In recent years been increasing
among grain growers to diversify their
crops, and that has been greatly stimulated during the past year by the
extension of scientific Information
and teaching on the part of public authorities, such as the Btate government Institutions, and even by the
management of the big railways.
TheBe have recognised the foolishness
of continual wheat cropping year after year on the same land, because on
the older lands It has a diminishing
yield, not only to the dlBadvantage of
thd grain grower but a detriment to
every Interest connected with the
grain growing districts. Only by the
bringing of more new lands under cultivation can a profitable Increase In
wheat growing In the American northwest take place. During the past
week the weather over the United
States and Western Canadian spring
wheat country haa oontlnued back-
' ward and wet, which has prevented
r- progress In seeding and In farm work
1 generally. It Is not too late yet for
i most ot the delay to be made up II
| the weather will only become steady
and fine, but any further continuation
ot unfavorable conditions will seriously affect the prospect of this
year's crop over the spring wheat
country. Lake navigation at American and Canadian lake ports was fully
opened at the end of last weak and
the pent up grain which has bean accumulating in the lake port elevators
la now being rushed eastward, and
will soon go out of sight, and appear
no more in huge visible stocks. The
movement from the Interior both In
the United States and Canada Is becoming moderate, and while usually
a goodly Increase In Interior movement takes place after farmers are
through with spring work, we do not
expect this will ocour In the same
proportion this summer. The progress
of the crops in Europe seems to be
normal as far as recent reports go;
there le, however, a large demand
from France and Italy for foreign
wheat at the present time, whioh Is
not unlikely caused by soma apprehension ol less favorable prospect for
yield In these countries, than appears
on the surface. World's shipments
will probably alter this week be considerably leas during summer than
they were a year ago.
Our Winnipeg market continues in
a good, healthy condition. Navigation at Fort William and Port Arthur
opened on the 3rd Inst., and several
million busl.els of wheat which had
been stored In vesselB In the harbors
cleared at once for the east. This
week several million more bushels
are going out of the elevators, and
before many days a large decrease In
the qunntlty In store will be Been
Large deliveries of May wheat

settle, when the time arrives, into a
green and smiling age is to be a good
artist in life and deserve well of yourself and your neighbour." t
