Mail Steamer Lusitania Wrecked in Bright Moonlight

(Special to the Optimist)
Capetown, April 20.���Dramatic
scenes took place at the wreck

iheir lives in the heavy surf that

Bright Moonlight Night

fresh breeze was blowing and the
vessel was swinging t<> the seas

speed she piled herself up completely driving far up on the reef j

Signals for Aid Seen
Rockets were sent up and guns
fired for aid. Heavy surf dashing
mi the rocks swepi right over the
wreck. Women and children who
li.ul rushed up, scanlilv clad, from
below when the vessel struck,
suffered greatly from cold and
exposure. Efforts were made to
lower the boats and take the
passengers off, but the first boats
launched swamped and capsized
in the heavy surf and eight passengers were lost in spile of
heroic efforts to save them. Only
the grip the wreck had of the rock
prevented her from foundering.
Then the sound of an answering
gun was heard and the British
battleship Forte came steaming
up at full speed.
Bluejackets to the Rescue
Standing by the rock as near
as possible with safely the Forte

the crew and passengers of the
Lusitania transferred without loss
of life. 1,'hey were conveyed to

No good purpose is served b) attempting to conceal the fact lhat
the conditions ol land settlement all over Northern British Columbia =���
and on Graham Island in particular are in an outrageous condition, +.^..~
I'liis in spiie ui the fact that the press of the northern province seems| j
to have entered into ,1 conspiracy to suppress an) information about
it,    The time has come when iu our own interests, irrespective of all
party preferences, the people of Northern British Columbia should \
bring pressure t" bear and end the present insufferable conditions. /
Already,  large numbers <>l  would-be settlers who have been  \
decoyed Ime   some even from the shore.-- oi Europe���have written
to their friends urging them nol to follow until the laws are changed,
Some have frankly stated to tlie Optimist their conviction that they
were brought to the Province by false pretences.
It i> not thai the land is not here, li is not thai the land i> nol
of ilu- rich fertility it i> represented to be. li is not that there i-- nol
a good market for all the produce thai tlie land.- may grow. Thc
lands are here, ihey are rich, .md a market is waiting, 'hi man)
tea-tables in Prince Rupert ilu- week ore 10 bc found radishes and garden produce imported Irom Seattle,    Anon1.1l> ol anomalies.
The trouble is thai would-be settlers, are not allowed lo settle
on the lands, Tlie one necessary class the only class who can effectively conquer the land are driven hitliei and thither to please the coal
grabbers and land sharks.
Though the whole of thc cast side of Graham Island irom Skidegate Inlet to Masset Inlet was declared a reserve on July 80, 1908
and i> -till advertised ,i> such thc would-be settlers on it are unabh
to obtain possession of lands, Some have lain driven irom their
pre-emptions two and three times. Some after being granted records
hy the i'rovinical Government have had them recalled, 0.1 the plea
that ii had since been disco\ crcd that 1 roal companies had prior claim-.
To their inquiries no satisfaction is given.
On September ,'ird last, Hon. Mr, Taylor and thc local member
paid a vi-ii to Masset. "They were received quietly, and iu a manner
befitting public sentiment up ami down ihe Inlet." said ihe local
paper.  Hoili gentlemen promised to have tho grievances of the settlers
A se���ion of the Legislature has -ime been held. Imt the grievances
have mn lieen remedied. Instead, an amendment to the Coal Act
waa brought in limiting the coal licensees' rights to the amount
of ihe surface of the land required for mining operations. But the
law waa not made retroactive. And the reserve i- already blanketed.
Writing at thc time from Victoria to an elector about thc matter
Mr. M.111-011 said: "I think that the best course to pursue is not to
give the matter of the amendment to the Act undue publicity."
A- it happens ihe best Interests of I'rince Rupert, of ('.raham
Island, of the would-be settlers even of Mr. Man-on himself demand
thai the mailer be i;i\eii due publicity. If the Islands are nol settled,
what i- to become of our trade, (lur storekeepers will lack customers.
We will have to continue importing vegetables, and thc would-be
sillier- will return 10 their homes in lhe prairie provinces and in

anxious for thc progress >>i the districl should unite upon.

Jack Laviolelte, the star lacrosse

"the little dare devil" lacrosse
player, are on the point of joinging
Newsy l.alonde and Don Phelan
on iheir way to the Pacific Coast
lo join the Vancouver Lacrosse
Club. They have received telegrams from Con Jones, president
of the Vancouver Club, which
said: "1 depend upon you to come
West as you agreed lasl fall and
expect you to keep your word."
Both I.avioleite and Gauthier
have told their friends that they
intended to go, but would return
in time to play hockey with the
Canadians next winter. The departure of Laviolelte will make
things easier for President Murphy of the National Lacrosse
Union, as several clubs had a claim
in for the player's services and had
appealed to the head of the Union.
