RUSH FOR OIL ON
GRAHAM ISLAND
Deep Interest has Been Aroused in the Holdings on the Oueen Charlottes-Many Investors are Seeking Information
Concerning the Area.
The oil prospects of Graham Island promise to be one of the lead-
iug attractions In the north this
coming sumemr. The outside hat
" u awakened to U.e fact that In*,
show!] gs one the west coast of tilt
i.-l i:;-; are such cs to warrant th'6
fullest investigations so that the
Ci/n'i g of the spring will, it is le'.t
see a decided rush among those whe
represent capital who will seek investment there.
The work that is now in progress
under the 13. C. Oilfields is attract
ing attention and there have been
many sent to the spot quietly t&
investigate for other interests, which
are following the development verj
carefully.
Under various guises men have
gone over to the location and returned. No one knows who they represent or to whom they are reporting,
but it is evident now that there is
a very decided interest awakened.
J. W. Coovert, of Portland, Ore.,
Mr. Doyle, and Mr. Thorpe,
with Mr. Thorne, also of Portland,
went over to Masset with the intention of going to the oil fields, but
upon arrival there they received the
news that the launch which '.ook
Mr. Slater and party over had been
probab'y wrecked, which up set their
plans. They accordingly returned
to Pr.nce Rupert where thev await
developments before proceeding 0:1
L'mir wr.v.
vViiiie hit] Coo.ert and his party
absolutely refuse to discuss their
mission or the interests behind them,
it is known, as was announced in
the Journal a few days ago, that they
are looking into the situation for
large interests. It is In fact reported that Mackenzie & Mann are
behind   them,   and   that   (hey   seek
exact information as to the prospects
there for those magnates who seem
to be ready to invest in any good
proposition    on this coast.
The information which is in possession of those men is said to be
that the formation is the correct one
for ihe finding of oil and that there
is little or no likelihood but what
the oil will be found in quantity and
of a very  superior quality.
A. recent arrival from the oil
drilling operations who reached the
city today says that when he left
the drill was down 9 00 feet that the
formation was perfect for oil, and
that oil in limited quantity was rising to the surface. There was,
moreover, an abundance of gas
which gave an excellent promise as
to the oil.
The gas is reported to be in such
quantity that it is the intention of
those engaged there to drive their
machinery for drilling by burning
the gas.
The interest in uraham Island's
oil deposits is only beginning. Before
the summer is well advanced it is
highly probable that more represenla
tives of capital will be seeking that
location to investigate than will be
found in any other line of investment in the nortli, which is certainly
a strong prophesy. It is known,
however, that the oil prospects are
now known to a very large number
on Uie outside. Experts in that line
have got exact information on the
subject and further facts are being
sought on the ground.
Provincial Officer Godson returned from Masset yesterday by the
Prince   John.

The city council met yesterday
afternoon for the purpose of consulting with .1. Loren McLaren to
see If some settlement could not be
reached in the Horrigan contracts. A
basis of settlement was presented
by Mr, McLaren, but In view of the
fact that the engineer had not seen
this before, and wus not able off
hand to give a decision on the different points, it was agreed to lay
the whole matter over until the engineer had prepared a report on the
subject.
Ruck From Masset
Mr. Sandals, manager of tlie

there on business. He reports that
there Is a good amount of business
apparent in that centre. Development work in coal and timber is having the effect of building up quite a
local trade.
(Special Correspondence)
Masset, reb. 9.—The steamer
Claxton arrived at Masset a few
days ago and took the Indians of
the Masset band to Virago sound,
where work was immediately commenced on the clearing of ground
and cutting idling for a new wharf.
The cannery will he erected near the
entrance to the Sound and work will
be proceeded with rapidly, in preparation for die spring salmon fishing, which begins In May.
The cannery will be one of the
largest In the province, and a number of other buildings, for tho fishermen, will be placed on the adjacent ground. Il Is the intent inn

LOSS OF LIFE OFF
QUEEN CHARLOTTES
Mr. Slater the Oil Expert and His Party Including Henry Edenshaw of Masset May Have'
Lost their Lives off the West Coast
of Graham Island.
It is feared that (here lias been a
serious loss of life on the west coast
of Graham Island, and that seven
men may have met deatii as a result
of the swamping of a launch and a
loaded schooner.
On January 21, Mr. Slater, the
expert oil driller employed by the
B. C. Oil Fields, accompanied by
three members of his party, Messrs.
McLaren, Stake and anotner, and
by four Indians, including Henry
Edenshaw, left .Masset for Otard
Bay with supplies for the drilling
camp.
The stores were loaded for the
most part in the schooner King
George. Henry Edensbaw's launch
Josephine, with Mr. Edenshaw, left
with the schooner in tow. A crew
of three other Indians accompanied
Mr. Edenshaw. The schooner had
about four tons of supplies to be
used  at the oil  well.
The next day the oil drillers near
Tiahn Point saw two small craft
passing south with a high wind
blowing. It is presumed that these
were the launch and the schooner.
The schooner was sailing under its
own sail and going at a lively rate.
Those who know tlie situation
there say it would be unsafe for
them to have tried to have entered
Otard Bay under those conditions
as they would run the risk of being
dashed on the rocks, the bay being
exposed. ... _..
A few days later Mr. Livingstone
left the oil drlling camp for Mas-
set, coming overland. He expected
to find the Edenshaw launch back
in Masset before he arrived, but
nothing bad been heard of Ihe craft
after Its departure, and anxiety was
aroused  for  the safety of the whole
party. The launch could make the
trip within about twenty-sever or
twenty-eight hours.
Upon the matter being reported
to the local government office, Mr.
McMullin, the government agent,
and Chief Owen, of the provincial
police, got busy at once in devising
means for a search being made. An
attempt was made to get into communication wills the William .lolliffe
the fishery protection steamer, but
she had gone south. The Quadra
also was on Its way soutli.
The provincial authorities engaged
the Phippen, of tlie Cold Storage
Company, but later the owners cancelled the engagement. An attempt
was made to get the Prince John,
but this would necessitate communication with the G.T.P. authorities in
the south.
Messrs. McMullin and Owen have
communicated with the authorities in
Victoria, and hope to have some ves-
vel of the Dominion government,
either the Quadra or the Leebro,
which is supposed to be on her way
here, make a trip to the west coast
in order to search for the missing
men if they are marooned on any
island.
An effort is being made, also, to
have the Prince John make a trip
about the outside route after she
calls at Jedway.
It is felt that under the weather
conditions the small vessels may have
avojdecl  trying_to  run jnto the  baysA
until   some   safe   one   life   Rennell
.sound   was   reached,  and   that   they
| may  be safe,  but  oul   of  reach.     If
the vessels  were not  wrecked  there
| is a plentiful supply of provisions on
board which will keep the men supplied    for    a  long time until   help
reaches  them.

WELL   REPRESENTED
In William .Manson (he Skeena
districi has a worthy representative.
To all those who know hini the fact
is patenl thai during the sessions
of the legislature the member for
this district enjoys no rest. He is
ever alert to the needs of the district he represents, and with a
knowledge of bow to gain his ends
he takes pains to bring the needs
of t.lie various parts of the riding
prominently before the members of
i he Government.
A recent visitor to Victoria, who
had occasion to watch Mr. Malison's
course (here, says that it is wonderful the amount that lie is doing to
advance the interests of the Skeena
districl. He is never idle, but is
constantly busy in the departments
on work which does not show, perhaps, on the outside so much but
is followed by results. He says it
is marvellous the amount lie is getting for his district to the disgust
of some of the other members who
adopt more spectacular methods.
This is characteristic of Mr. Man-
son as all his friends know. He is
a conscientious and untiring worker
for tlie districl he represents. He
is, moreover, known to work with
an absolutely honest purpose and
without considering his own self-
interests in the least, lie is a model
member for any constituency, and
tlie Skeena may well feel proud of
him.
AN OIL  ROOM
Much as it is to be hoped that it
may not come, there is every indication that n veritable boom in the oil
business is likely to follow with the
opening of spring on the fields located on Graham Island. Evidences
point to the fact thai the petroleum
is likely to be found. If it is, nothing ran prevent one of the greatest
booms in thai pari of the province
thai has even been seen in British
Columbia.
Indications point to the fact that
there may have been a most unfortunate marine accident in connection wiih tlie transport of supplies
there. It is to be hoped that the
men who took their lives in their
hands in the effort to reach the spot
where the oil is being sought, may
have only been carried out of their
course and  may be rescued.
In the development of a new
country like this with iis wealth
stored away in inaccessible places,
men musl take chances with their
lives. It is the story of the advance
of civilization and progress. Were
there not intrepid men who will take
the risk there would be no progress.
It so happens that In many cases
the most daring and the best type
of human beings musl sacrifice (heir
lives for the benefits which others
will   reap.

lor the supremacy, as Great Britain

her naval supremacy would never be

ies, which last year amounted to ten
million dollars out of the twenty-
nine millions for the whole of Canada. He pointed out how a few
years ago there were 52 poaching
vessels, which pilfered two million
dollars' worth. .Vow there are over
-'mi poaching vessels, which steal
05,000,000 pounds of halibut yearly.
The present prelection vessels are inadequate, being able to steam only
8 to Hi knots an hour, while the
poachers are much faster, and are
equipped witli wireless telegraphy.
Three   Vessels
He advocated the building of three
up-to-date steamers, able to steam
from 15 to IS knots and equipped
witli   wireless  telegraphy.
These vessels should not be under the control of the naval service
department. They could drive
poachers from the bays where they
catch bait and clean their catch.
.Mr. Barnard commended on the
open way in which the poaching busi
ness is conducted from Seattle, and
on the humiliating influence on the
province and the Dominion of the
daring way in which the American
poachers defy the Canadian regulations. He mentioned a case where
a vessel was seized and was released
on the payment of a »50 fine because
the owner was a friend of the Laurier
government. He held that the new
protection cruisers should be built
on the Pacific coast.
Mr. Stevens urged the construction of three vessels of the same
type as the poachers, about 100 tons
and 15 knots speed. These should
be under the fisheries department,
the Canadian navy being a joke. lie
went on to refer to the substitution
of Orientals for white men in the
fishing industry and the far-reaching effects on the industry generally.
Mr. Stevens also drew attention
to the farming out of licenses and
to the wasteful and inhuman methods pursued in the whaling trade.
.Mr.   .Shepherd   dwelt     upon     the
scandalous   traffic   in   licenses.     Dr.
Thompson  of   Yukon,  spoke  of  the
poaching in Hecate straits.
Minister's Promises
Hon. Mr. llazen, after the usual
compliments to the members who
had opened the subject, said that
their statements had been correct.
The protection within the three-mile
limit had been inadequate, and the
poaching fleet was numbered in the
hundreds. He then outlined at some
length the measures which the government is taking to meet this situation. The protection vessels are
obsolete and useless, and the Kestrel and Restless are to be sold.
Three vessels are to be procured,
two for protection and one for patrol
service. Appropriations of $275,-
iiuo for (he Tormer and $75,00 for
the latter are in the estimates. Th.2
now vessels may be ready this year.
One of the protection vessels may
be purchased and Ihe others will be
built. Tlie building will be done
on tlie coast if possible.
Will Charter
Pending (heir completion two
suitable vessels will be chartered at
$liiii per day. An appropriation of
$511,01111 is provided for this purpose.
Mr, llazen declined i>> take die
proteel inn Bert ice out of t lie naval
service department. The minister
was tiie same in any event, lie observed,   anil   there   were   reasons   of
departmenl    convenience.      Whales,
i lie minister observed, arc caught
outside Hie three-mile limit, and so
Hie regulation of their fishery is a
mailer of International regulation.
Canada and the United Slates are
the two countries most concerned in
this.
Captain Bernler had drawn the attention of the department of slaughter of whales in the Arctic, and had
recommended the prohibition of
killing for a term of years. Mr.
llazen had instructed his officials to
take preliminary steps to procure the
formulation of international regulations for the preservation of the animals.
Fishing Licenses
Turning to licenses, Mr. llazen
said dial (here was reason for strong
criticism of the manner in which (he

previous government had handled
the question. The habit had been
to grant these licenses not to fishermen, but to persons engaged in
mercantile pursuits, who bad no intention of fishing themselves. These
men farmed the licenses out, obtaining as much as $1,!>00 for them.
They did nothing for this tax they
levied on the fishermen. No licenses have been issued this year,
censes have been issued this year,
and none will be to persons not actually engaged in the industry. He
bad asked the British Columbia government to co-operate and also had
asked Fisheries Officer Cunningham
to come to Ottawa to consult with
the provincial officers as to the license system. The practice of putting licenses up to auction might be
tried.
There was another matter with regard to which the Laurier government had not seemed to realize the
situation. That was the way In which
the salmon fisheries were administered purely in the interests of the
canneries. The canneries got licenses and the individual fishermen
who were prohibited from exporting
ffesh fish, were at the mercy of
the canneries and could pursue their
calling only as the latter chose. A
man might catch a good haul and
reaching the cannery find a notice
that it would only take so many fish
per man. He could not sell his surplus fish, he could not throw them
into the water, he was not allowed
even to use them as fertilizers of the
soil. These regulations seemed to
have been made years ago, when
the situation was not understood.
They favored a few rich men; they
were a scandal. Last Saturday he
had repealed those regulations, and
now Columbia fishermen could send
their fresh fish abroad.
Mr. Sinclair asked about oriental
labor and the bonding privilege. Mr
llazen replied that he did not wish
to speak of the Japanese situation
until lie could study it and so speak
more authoritatively, h was very
as domestic reasons. The bonding
privilege was a niatetr which called
for the most careful consideration,

PRINCE RUPERT JOURNAL
LORD ROSEBERY ON
CRITICAL SITUATION
The Foreign Situation of Great Britain Made
Subject of Recent Speech by Well Known
Statesman-He Looks Upon Conditions as Grave
Lord Rosebery, who has stood
aloof for so many years from the
mention of foreign politics on public
platforms, made a significant speech
at Glasgow on the critical relations
now existing between Great Britain
and other powers. The speech was
not, and was not intended to be, a
criticism of the policy which Sir Edward Grey lias pursued at the For-
■eign Office, but it was full of grave
warnings regarding tlie complications
into which our ententes and understandings made with foreign powers
during the last decade may lear us.
"We are," said Lord Rosebery,
"for good or evil, involved in the
Continental system . . . which may at
any time bring us into contact with
armies numbering millions. . . . We
have entered into liabilities which at
any moment may lead us into a
great Armageddon, and which will
be greater than any war which we
have known since the fall of Napoleon."
The following are the main points
of Lord Rosebery's speech:—
Lord Hardane the other night
made some rather despondent remarks on the result of his extraordinary remarks on behalf of the defence force he is endeavoring to
create.
I can well understand that after
his expenditure of labor by day and
by night to try to promote the interests of his Territorial force and
to try to increase the military defence forces of the country, it must
come as something of a disappointment that they should still fall very
far short  of his ideal.
I think Lord Haldane has not
been altogether well seconded in his
efforts. I think that the enthusiasm should at least begin with his
colleagues, and that he should have
had more hearty support from the
government than he seems to have
received. Alore especially would
tiie bounty of the Chancellor of the
Exchequer be extremely welcome in
that direction.
You have had a great protagonist,
in the shape of Lord Roberts, who
adopts a very different view, and in
all military questions the opinoin
of a veteran like Lord Roberts must
carry such enormous weight as to
have importance for civilians who,
like myself, impartial from ignorance, are faced by the hostile opinion and  criticism of Lord  Roberts.
There has been difficulty, then,
in laying the foundations of the necessary faith in view of the opposition of many high authorities, among
whom 1 reckon the chief as Lord
Roberts, but further faith must be
based on knowledge as to the main
questions relating to the defence
forces of the country.
Never forget this —armaments
must depend on your policy, and it
is extremely difficult for us who
know nothing about the foreign
policy except what we see in the
newspapers to form any accurate
judgment as to what that foreign
policy may  be.
We are, for good or evil, involved in the Continental system, Ihe
merits of which 1 do not. pretend lo
judge, because I do nol know enough
about It, but which, at any rate, may
at any time bring us Into contact
with armies numbering! millions,
and our own forces would hardly be
counted in such a war lis I hey stand
at present.
We know little, bul al any rale,
we know this—al least I think we
do know it—that during last summer we were on the verge of a great
conflict in Europe in which we were
to take a foremost part.    I do not

C.ll ORME, The Pioneer Druggist

know myself exactly on what
grounds—the grounds do not matter so long as the fact and the liability were there.
We have entered into liabilities
the nature and extent of which I for
one do not know, but which are uo
less tsringent or binding because
they are unwritten, and which at
any moment, so far, at any rate, as
I can discern the signs of the times,
may lead us into a great Armageddon which has sometimes ravaged
Europe, and which will be greater
than any war which we have known
since the fall of Napoleon.
I am not uttering surmises to you,
gentlemen. I am not pretending to
know any more than any other read-
ed of the newspapers, but this, at
any rate, all readers of the newspapers must know, that we have certain vague liabilities connected with
ententes. I would rather they were
definite alliances, because, after all,
alliances limit any define. We have
certain vague obligations, the nature of which I do not profess to
know, but, at any rate, in regard to
which anyone can predicate that they
involve the immediate liability of a
gigantic war in certain circumstances which are by no means unlikely to
occur.
I do not say this to make your
flesh creep. There is no object in
that. I have a much more serious
and definite purpose in view. It is
to try to raise the enthusiasm and
the sense of public duty of those
whom I am addressing and those
who may read my words outside
these wells. I think this position
of liability—of unwritten and vague
liability, an honorable liability, if
you may so speak of it—is one of
extreme danger, and one for which
we cannot be sufficiently prepared.
What 1 complain of in our present
Imperial policy is this—I am not
censuring or accusing any M.P. Out
present foreign secretary is a gentleman for whom I have the most unbounded affection and respect. 1 am
not accusing or criticising any man.
I am only putting before you this
simple thesis: That if you have deliberately, as I understand you have,
adopted a policy of what is perhaps
unlimited liability on the Continent,
you must be prepared at the proper
time to make good that liability.
Sly friend, Lord Haldane, uttered
the other night a sentence which I
confess made me more uncomfortable than any utterances which he
has yet made on the subject. He
said there might come a time when
that line of the Territorials would be
all that stood between us and our
homes and hearths. Well, we ignorant people are always told that that
contingency is impossible, that we
have an impregnable fleet which
stands between us and any possible
invasion. I confess when I see it is
said by the minister for war, who Is
so firm a believer in the Territorial
army, that there will be nothing but
the line of Territorials at a possible
day standing between us and the
occupation of our homes and hearths
I am bound to say that that makes
one think very gravely of what our
situation may be.

The United States will not be represented, officially, In at least one
event—the women's swimming- and
diving competition. Secretary Sullivan has declared that the A. A. U.
will not take women competitors
abroad. In many quarters this is regarded with disapproval, for there
are speedy women swimmers in this
country who might win points for
the team. Mrs. Teries Desch of San
Francisco has declared her intention
to go to Stockholm on her own initiative.
England is making strenuous efforts to Find a winning form, and
Ihe discussion over "England's athletic debility" has been almost a national cry. The past year was disastrous for the tight little athlels,
who were defeated by continental
and colonial athletes.
Because Secretary Sullivan has requested the government to station a
battleship at Stockholm during the
Olympic games, England thinks it
only Tit that the English government should act as host to the English team. Sporting Life says: "The
value of supporting spectators in the
stands cannot be overestimated, as
was proven in London in 1908 when
thousands of Americans cheered
members of the American team in
every event."
Japan will challenge the supremacy of the world at Stockholm.
Trials are being conducted to select
the best team for the games. The
winner of a Marathon over the full
Olympic course, 26 miles, 385 yards,
was run in 11 minutes faster time
the best previous world's record.
Germany has a vaulter, R. Pas-
man, who does 12 feet regularly.
Critics say he will clear 13 feet before the next summer. If this is
true, Pasman is the best vaulter in
the world, and ought to win an
event which has heretofore looked
easy for an American. Pasman is
also a "lepper," having beaten six
feet in the running high, and tak

competition to the same day.

was made by William Koran, one of

the proposition from the Boston

Pacific coasl winners tic played
there, thai under no circumstances
would the holders be permuted to

"The defenders, whoever they
may be may play for the cup in
Vancouver, Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal or wherever they choose, said
Mr. Foran, "but.Boston is out of the
question."
In the event of there being no ice
in tlie east when the champions of
the Pacific Coast league are ready to
ply for the trophy the N.H.A. champions will be permitlted to go out
to the coast and defend the mug
on artificial ice, and as all of the
clubs have expressed a willingness to
go west, the cup matches may be
played there the latter part of .March
