It is peculiarly in keeping with the topsy-turvy year of violently varying weather, universal human unrest, droughts, grasshopper plages and other phenomena that there now comes from various eyewitnesses the report of seeing some of the Sasquatch, those weird hairy men reported from 20 years to dwell in tremendous and unexplored mountain region of British Columbia Canada.


they're reported return is particularly in keeping with this unusual year, so remarkable for the number of appearances of various startling monsters cited from Scotland to the Caribbean, from the Pacific to the Mediterranean, the reality of which is affirmed by scores of eyewitnesses. Moreover, the statements are some of these people, insofar as curious Dennison's of the ocean are concerned, have been born out for within a short time of each other, at a dozen places on the European coast, the remains of incredible monsters of the deep have been cast up.


of all these mysterious earthly visit pants, perhaps the Sasquatch is the least known by reason of the rarity of their appearance and the reluctance of those who have seen them to talk.


The existence of a trogodytic brace inhabiting the mountains of British Columbia and many of the vast caves is a tribal legend among that Chehalis Indians and those of is Skwah reservation, near Chilliwack, in the Harrison lake district, about a hundred miles east of Vancouver. Among the Indians the race has been known for centuries by the name Sasquatch, or hairy men.


but reports of these creatures being seen frequently at various times over a period of the last 20 years, and seen frequently in recent weeks, have caused the number of people to raise the question if these strange creatures may not be more than an Indian legend of the past, and that's some of this race a cavern dwellers are still living in the unexplored vastness of British Columbia.

the Sasquatch have been seen, according to the statements from both white men and Indians. The wild hairy men have mostly been reported in the Harrison lake district, but also as far east as the mountainous region of Yale, and the main line of the Canada Pacific railway.


the repeated reports of eyewitnesses of seeing one or more of the huge hairy men in recent years, and more particularly in the last month, and the mounting number of reports of I twin this's now seem to point strongly that the old tribal legend, lung contemptuously flouted by the white man, is true, and that at least a few this mysterious race May still inhabit the solitudes nearby where once they were numerous. The possibility of this is further born out when it is recalled that the remains of a giant race of men recently have been unearthed in the mountainous region of Mexico.


the chief difficulty, in fact the whole task of an investigator, in matters of such phenomena as Sasquatch or sea serpents, it is, of course, The credibility of the witnesses. If I'm truthful, what motive lights behind the story? In the case of the Sasquatch, the element of credence is heightened because in most cases that witnesses have been reluctant ones, some of them not revealing their stories for years.


from a careful comparison of all eyewitness statements today, all are closely an agreement as to the following facts:


The Sasquatch are gigantic men, varying from 6 1/2 to 7 ft in height. One, and only one, witness States the nose of them to be very broad, and the arms long-reaching below the knee. All by one are agreed as to the hideousness of the face.


however, as in most intense instances the Sasquatch were not seen up close, it is natural the descriptions remain very general. Those people who  have been very close were so terror-stricken that their accounts are vague. yet, aside from one of the most recent happenings, and only two other cases have the Sasquatch shown themselves hostile.


the fact that some of these strange people have just being reported close to civilization at the time accurately compares with dates noted by that Chehalis Indians. the Indians have oral records covering three generations. According to these, members of the tribe have seen in the springtime every 4th year the light of a great fire on one of the highest peaks in the Chehalis range. The fire burns for four nights, rising in a very high, thin column. Sometimes it is suddenly extinguish, to rise again a little later. The this is  some periodic Mark of a return to a certain place of worship at some ancient shrine, or a communication with members in some remote mountain vastness, are possible conjectures.


these periodic returns to some ancient gathering place do bring these people close to what are now civilized areas. A few days ago, a middle-aged Indian, Tom cedar, was trout fishing from his canoe on Morris Creek, a tributary of the Harrison. She was near a rocky terrorist Bank. Suddenly a large Rock struck the water so close to his canoe that he was drenched by the splash. Looking up, she saw with amazement a huge hairy men above him just as he threw another rock. This also barely missed the canoe. Cedar paddled rapidly upstream to the settlement.


by way of noting an odd coincidence, this particular stream, now called Morris Creek, was known as Saskakau when the white man first arrived, and it show called on old maps. Nearby are the caverns which were investigated by captain Ward, 40 years of resident in the district. He States they bear evidence of habitation. Upon the walls are some crude drawings. In this region, according to the Indians, two large bands of Sasquatch fought a long time ago until both were brought almost to extermination. The other evidence of hostile intention of some of these creatures dates back 20 years and consists of the statements of two Indians. Peter and Paul Williams, of Chehalis. The following is a very much condensed resume:


On an evening in May, States Peter, I was about a mile from the reserve, near the foot of the mountain, when would I have first took to be a bear rose up in the underbrush. It was a man between 6 and 7 ft tall, covered with hair. I turned and ran through the underbrush to my dugout. The hairy man came after me. I paddled across the stream, which is not very deep and the man wadded after. I reached the house where my wife and child were inside. I bolted the door. Presently the hairy man arrived. It was growing dark. He prowled around, grunting and growling, but after a little while went away.


about the same time call was chased from a creek where he was fishing. But the giant did not run after him very far, and apparently the action was only to drive the manor way to get the fish he had taken.


On another occasion in the next year, Peter and another man came up onto Giants so close as to distinguish a man and a woman. Though the Indians ran, they were not pursued.


Charlie Victor, now living at Chilliwack, relates that he and a little group of companions, while bathing in a mountain lake, suddenly looked up to see a huge man, naked and Harry, looking down upon them from among the trees. His big eyes looked very kind, and I was about to speak to him when he drew back into the trees, related Charlie. here we have the only witness who gives a favorable reaction 2 sight of the mysterious race. This took place many years ago and not a point about a hundred miles from where the majority of the Sasquatch have been reported seen in recent times.


the next account of which any fully recorded evidence is now to be seen deals with September, 1927, near the little mountain town of a'gaci, which is very near the points at which all the other Sasquatch have been reported. A party of hot pickers we're picnicking here. On their way to this a man, named Herbert point, in a girl, Adeline August, were walking when they saw a strange creature approaching. He was twice as big as the average man, with hands so long they nearly touch the ground, and his nose seen spread all over his face. His body was covered with hair like an animal. He stopped within 50 feet of us. We run away as fast as we could.


within recent weeks Emma Paul and Millie saw, two other members of the chi halas reserve, so one of the Sasquatch near their home on The Fringe of the woods. Several nights later he was heard prowling around the home of Millie soul, and once rubbed his hand over the window pane.


to date, the last report was from Harrison Mills, a small Hamlet on the Harrison River.


the woman, on hearing a humming noise, looked up to see a big man covered with hair on the edge of the clearing. She was frightened. Taking a backward step, she fell into one of the half full laundry tubs has which she had been working. When she had extricated herself and looked again, the man had disappeared. such, in brief, are the legendary and eyewitness stories regarding the Sasquatch.


the scientific board connected with the museum of Vancouver is skeptical regarding the existence of any such remnant of a race the ones might have room the forested regions.


an objection that the climate is too rigorous for a naked race, no matter how Harry, might be answered by pointing to the penguins, who live in a much more inhospitable one. the eyewitness reports have always been reluctantly given. Then maybe many more. The chief objection among the natives to telling white inquires is fear of ridicule. This sensitivity is much stronger among the natives than white.

here, for the present, the matter must rest. Perhaps further witnesses may be heard in the future. Remembering, however, in judging the possibilities of the existence of the Sasquatch, how many people have seen sea serpents that remains of strange creatures have been recently watched on various shores, it is quite within the bounds of probability that just as there are unknown forms of life in the boundless depths of the ocean, equally so there may be in the enormous wilderness stretches of British Columbia wild hairy men roaming.
