THEY'RE    COMING    TO    CHASE      |
Vol. 2. JSTo. 18
Chnse. B.C., Fridftv. August
aa. toia
SB'-2.00 Per Year
Committee   Has  Been   Appointed   To
Constitution and By-Laws for Shuswap
Lake Associated Boards of Trade.
The convention called at the invitation
of the Chase board of trade to consider
the'formation of a permanent organization of the nature of an associated boards
of trade for the Shuswap lake district
and to appoint a delegation to go to
Victoria to urge upon the government
the granting of a larger subsidy for the
steamboat service on the Shuswap lake
and South Thompson river, met at
Chase on Monday, the eighteenth instant. There were present beside the
members of the Chase board, the following delegates from outside points:
Kamloops, Capt. Worsnop, N. S. Dalgleish and A. C. McMillan; Sorrento,
J. R. Kinghorn and Chas. Moore; Eagle
Bay, J. A. Leslie; Celesta Creek, C. 0.
Sjoquist; Seymour Arm, Jas. Hyslop;
Salmon Arm, R. W. Bruhn. E. P* Gird-
wood, the district engineer of the Pro-
, vincial Department of Public Works,
was also present in an unofficial capacity.
Unfortunately the delegates appointed
by the Salmon Arm board of trade had
not been able to get down on account of
their train being delayed. J. R. A.
Richards and F. W. Clingan had been
appointed. R. W. Bruhn, the only
member of that board present at the
meeting, acted as its delegate.
The meeting organized by the appointment of G. G. Chase as chairman and
W. E. Keyt as secretary.
..._*.-.\fter a statement by the chairman of
the object for which the meeting had
been called, a motion was made that a
delegation of five be sent from this
meeting to Victoria to urge upon the
government the appropriation of $10,000
aB a subsidy for the carrying on of a
steamboat service next summer on the
Shuswap lake and the South Thompson
This motion provoked considerable
discussion.   Capt. Worsnop, in justifica-
, tion of such a request as the motion proposed, quoted figures thafc he had got
from Neale Murray, manager of the
Arrow Lakes company, showing that in
two months run this season the Andover
had earned about $400 in the first month
and $500 in the second month. This left
a deficit from running expenses amounting to $400 for the first month and $300
for the second month. If there was
such a loss in operating a part of the
route only, as the boat is doing this
summer, he contended that there Would
a be larger deficit in operating the whole
route from Kamloops to Salmon Arm,
requiring to be made up by a larger
Mr. Hyslop, the delegate from Seymour Arm, stated the case very forcibly
for his town. He maintained that what
was a convenience for other places was
for them necessary to their continued
existence. Unless Seymour Arm could
get regular communication with the put-
side world in winter time it' must soon
go back to the wilderness it was for
twenty years after the railway was
built. People would not stay in' a place
where they were totally isolated and
cut off for some monthB of the year.
He gave the meeting to understand that
if it would not make winter service to
Seymour Arm its primary demand upon
the government in connection with the
request for the Increaseof subsidy, that
his settlement would have nothing to do
with the delegation but would send a
delegation of its own. In thus assuming
that the meeting would be inclined to
neglect the interests of Seymour Arm,
Mr, Hyslop appeared to be in error, as
the motion under discussion was designed to provide the very thing that he was
asking for.
Mr. Sjoquist, the delegate from Celesta Creek, cndored all that Mr. Hyslop
had said relative to the imperative need'
for a winter service on the Arm.
Capt. Worsnop thought that the ice
was too heavy for any boat now on the
lake to keep open and that the government should be asked to itself undertake
the work.
Mr. Macmillan thought that if the
government had encouraged people to
go in and settle in these districts that
instead of requesting they should demand communication the year round.
Mr. Jenkins, resident manager of the
Seymour Arm Estates, who was present, but not as a delegate, was asked
to state his views.
Mr: Jenkins had a seirous grievance
which made him inclined to break off
all relations with the boards of trade
and work independently. The contract
which the committee had found so much
trouble in getting Mr. Murray tp sign
and,w_|icli Hon. Mr. Taylor, had Twotniiwd
should be laid before the committee before it was signed by his department,
had been signed up by both parties with
out any reference to the committee what
ever. Further, a letter had been written recently to the department by some
one in Chase advising them that Mr.
Jenkins was merely the agent of a corporation with land to sell and that they
should not attach too much importance
to his activity on behalf of Seymour
Arm. Mr. Jenkins appeared to attribute to the Chase board of trade this
act of some unauthorized individual, and
to think that the Chase people had broken faith with him. He was assured
that such was not the case and that the
Chase board had no knowledge of the
letter in question.
The discussion ended with the appointment of a committee to collect data
with reference to the settlement along
the lake, the nnmber of people to be
served, and the business that might be
expected. The committee consisted of
F. W. Clingan. Salmon Arm; Wm.
Thomson, Celista; Capt. Worsnop. Kamloops; G. G. Chase. Chase with A. S.
Farris, secretary of the Chase board of
trade as secretary of the committee.
The matter of the formation of an
association of the boards of trade and'
other local organizations throughout the
district to be a permanent body to take
up questions affecting the whole Shuswap lake district waB then taken up.
A motion was passed that the committee already appointed be authorized
to draft a constitution and by-laws for
the proposed association and report later
to a meeting of the .boards of. trade.
The meeting closed with a vote of thanks
to the chairman and secretary, moved
by Mr. Kinghorn of Sorrento.

August 25th.

Celista Young Man
Dies at Kamloops.
The aad news comes from Celiata of
the death from typhoid fever of Robert
Thomson, aaon of Wm. Thomson, J. P.,
one of the most prominent.residents on
the north side of the lake.
It was only a short time after it was
learned that the unfortunate young man
had been taken to the hospital at Kamloops that the word was received that
his disease had proved fatal. It came
as a surprise and shock to the many
friends of the bereaved family living in
Chase. The deepest sympathy is felt
for the parents and brothers and sisters
of the deceased.
Pat Spratt of Kamloops was a visitor
in town this week.    ,
The city police are making enquiries
concerning the whereabouts of Harry
O'Neil employed recently at Chase as a
saw filer. O'Neil'.s coat, containing a
packet of letters was found on the river
bank below the city wharf a week ago,
but O'Neil has been missing now for
some time. Any information regarding
Harry O'Neil must be forwarded to the
Chief of Police, Kamloops.���Kamloops

The maddest mun in town the other
day was Jim Baillie of Turtle Valley.
He received by mail a card notifying
him that there was un express parcel
for him at the Chase .station. Jim had
been expecting the arrival of a couple
of boxes of berries, so he hitched up a
team and drove down to Chase, a matter
of ten miles or so as the crow doesn't
fly, but as the road runs. He passed in
his post card notice and Mac handed him
out ah Eaton  catalogue.   The Eaton

Things are sure busy around here,
what with the C. P. K. double tracking
and the government road gang just moving in to improve our roads, and also to
put in the long expected cable for ferry'
ing across the river, which will, we hope
be a big improvement. But we are
still wanting more and will not be satisfied till we get the promised bridge.

We hear that Red Thompson is likely
to be back to his old stamping ground

We hope that our Chase friends and
those of the outlying districts of the
Martin Prairie Farmers' Institute will
not forget to save some special samples
for the fair at Pritchard on Sept. 19.
We all want a display that will be a
credit to the district and hope everyone
will get under and lift.
A. Holland of the Range has been in
the Kamloops hospital for several day.
Mr. O. Williams has his wife stopping
here from the coast.
W. F. Montgomery, the photographer
of Chase, is busy around here taking
groups and views.
Mr. Girdwood Meets
Board of Trade.
On Monday last E. P. Girdwood, provincial road engineer, met a committee
of the Chase board of trade to discuBs
with them the improvements that would
be needed in the town and vicinity during the coming year.
The committee were unable to state
just what would be needed until they
should see what would be done this summer. *
Mr. Girdwood explained that he should
like the board to make an estimate of
what would be required with details of
what the money would be required for
and to have it in good time for the
closing of the estimates on the twentieth
of November.
K. P. Ball Was Most  Largely Attended For Many
The K. P. ball on Friday night was
all that had been expected, andthen some.
Visitors came in by boat and by train
and the town came out en masse. There
were seventeen passengers by the Andover from Celista. Some came by launch
from Blind Bay. By rail they came
from as far east as Sicamous. By nine
o'clock the hall was filled with the largest crowd that haa gathered there for a
dance for a good many months.
All arrangements had been carefully
made and everything went through with
out a hitch. Music of both the dreamy
and lively kind was furnished by a four
piece orchestra, two violins played by
Ernest Buckingham and Tom Brown,
and Noble Bragg's banjo, accompanied
by Miss Stewart on the piano. For a
time there were five pieces, Mrs. Buck-,
ingham joined in with the mandolin.
Harry Fowler gave the usual satisfaction as floor manager.
The reception committee were right
on their job. They refused to listen to
the advice of one member "Let's introduce the strangers to all the old
womanS that we don't want ourselves."
Both natives and strangers must have
enjoyed themselves or they would not
have stayed so long. The home waltz
was called about 4:30 a.m.
Careless House Building
A drunken man lying on a street in
Toronto discharged a Ross riffle with
which he had been amusing himself late
Monday night last. The bullet went
through a wall and entered the arm of
a man sleeping in bed, severely wounding him. Yet some people will neglect
to build bullet-proof houses these days.

died of typhoid fever ip Kamloops hospital last week and was brought up by
water for burial which took place in
Celesta on Friday afternoon-w^Dl-UM^^.^ y*
youth could have had"1 his mother with
him at the last but for the lack of telephone communication at this south side
of the lake, for she was visiting at
Blind Bay and answered questions regarding her son hopefully as "no news
being good news" on the days of hia relapse. On her rrrival at the hospital
she found him dead. The sympathy of
the whole district is with the family, in
its bereavement.
The foundation for the Blind Bay
schoolroom is in progress but moving
slowly, as it is difficult to get men and
the farmers are at their harvest time.
Miss Ella Chamberlein is leaving shortly to rerume her profession as nurse in
in New York where she * trained. She
has made many friends at Notch Hill
since her arrival there, who are wishing
however that she would remain and keep
up her profession locally.

the examinations at the  Convent in

Mr. Rufiw Hammond, who has built
a good sized house in Notch Hill gave a
house-warming party on Friday night
when about fifty people  were  present.
His housekeeper and the various
chaperones served refreshments and
dancing kept up until two o'clock
next morming to the strains of Mr.
E. Moore's violin and several accompanists. And a very enjoyable evening
was spent by all.

when some future historian writes the annals of the twentieth
century he will tell how in the early decades of that century n "goml
roads" movement swept over the North American continent.
A quarter of a century ago millions of public money were forth
coming to help build privately owned railways. That was at a time
when public roads were built and maintained with taxes paid in labor
by the farmers along the way. Ofteu the result of the work was to
make the roads worse than they had been.
Now the country is awake to the importance of good highways.
It is not just certain who did the act. The automobile owners think
they did it, and the farmerB claim that the credit is due to temselves.
As more legislators belong to the first class than to the second it is
likely that automobile had more influence on determining the happy
course of events tban bad the.patient farm horse. Whoever it was thnt
first got things going, it looks as if there would be as many millions
spent in the building of country roads in the next twenty years us has
gone to the construction of railways in the last twenty. With its certain resnlts in money saved to the farmers, in wider circles of friends
among country people, iu the greater comfort of country life, and in
the better knowledge of our own country that wilt come from increased
road travel, the millions will be well spent.
pe *" h- .^.
On Monday tbe public school opens for another year's work. It
may be an event of no importance for some, but for others it throws
wars and strikes and all such little disturbances into tbe deep shadows.
To parents tbe success of a year of school work must mean much,
for a year in the life of a growing boy or girl is a long period. It is as
disastrous to waste the years of yonth as it is for a farmer to waste the
days of seedtime, The things that can be done then cannot well be
done afterwards. ,
It is perhaps too much tbe custom to suppose that tbe success of
a school depends altogether ou the teachers. It is perhaps well for the
teacher to believe that he or she makes the school. The parents should
feel, however, that much is left for them to do. One way in which they
can help is by frequent visits to the schoolroom. Both (teachers ami
pupils are stimulated by the interest which others take iu their work.
With a staff of teachers who are entire strangers to the town it is
up to the parents and trustees to help them to make the comiug year
the most successful in tbe history of the school;

Pioneers in British ���61r_bfa'Jcimatiines pity themselves because of
���heir being cut off from all the culture and comfort amid whioh they
Mpeot their early, years. . ti real as is the privation* in many oases it is
snail-compared with-what*. wss* endured ��� by the pioneers of eastern
Canada. There the' family and their livestock were known in many in-
stances to share tbe same quarters. *. ������*������
One of the, advance. guard of civilization in the 'Maritime Provinces
nad.toiled for nearly a lifetime in tbe forest wilderness and had raised
��� family of sturdy sons*and'daughters. The time came when be thought
the girls ought to learn music. A piano was ordered and the agent was
tqi.daliver it at a date not daf nitely fixed. The instrument arrived be>
fore it was eipected and found the family scarcely ready for its recep-
tton. As the agent stopped his team at the deor tbe old man came
ont. and seeing what was there called back-into Ibe house, "Alex, Alex,
tt*u ont the black ox and bring in the piano.''   ��� ������
Some refreshing c. itieisms on EritfUnd add the English are offered
by the Canadian teachers who are on a visit to London. "I am disappointed to find England so like Canada.' said one headmistress. "The
only difierence I have noticed is that the voices of English children are
mnoh more melodious than Canadian children, Our boys and girls
have quite harsh voices, but the English children have fine musical
voices, and I think they are prettier, too, We are stronger on patriotism
than you are in England."
A young lady from Quebec ventured that "some of your girls can't
receive any education in taste. I saw something yesterday that fair
set my teeth on edge," she continued. "She was about seventeen and
wore a brown hat with a red feather, a yellow sports jacket, a blue hobble skirt, and the heels of tier shoes|were nearly six inches high. It
was the most horrid tnm out I've ever seen. And we came to London
to see the fashions!"
.Another who came from Saskatchewan and who saw a suffragist riot
in Whitehall suggested that such a thing would be impossible in Canada. "You see over in Canada there are more men than women. In
England it's the other way about, and the women haven't a chance to
settle down to a normal married life. That is why, you have militants."

Fire System Tested.
Victora, B, C. Aug. 16.���The Provincial Government's new fire system
was given a good trial last week in a
fire which broke out at Bute Inlet. Had
it not been for the prompt action of the
fire wardens in the district���or rather
the system which made the prompt action possible���many million feet of first
class merchantable timber would have
been lost. The fire broke out in a log
chute in the centre of an old slashing,
It was blazing away when the nearest
district warden arrived. Soon a good-
sited fighting staff was on hand���thut
demonstrating the efficiency of the new
mobilisation scheme whereby a fire-fight
ing crew can bejeentred at a given point
in the minimum time.

Far in the interior of Peru, on irapreg

uninhabited and oversown with jungle

college professor. In 1911, while look*
ing for Vitcce, the last capital of the
Incas, Professor Hiram Bingham, of
Yale, discovered the palaces and templet
and the defences of the city of Machu
Picchu. He came back to this country:

by Yale University and the National
Geographic Society, which haa uncovered the wonders of this ancient citadel of
refuge to*the modern world.       >>
