SOCKEYES TO BE
LET UP THE NAAS
J. P. Babcock Has Returned From
Meziaden Lake Where Fish Ladder Is Being Put In There-Will Be
Ready By Time Run Reaches There
The Importance of the northern
fishing grounds is such that the attention of the authorities is being
more and more attracted to the
means that must be adopted to preserve the fish. In the matter of the
salmon It is essential that the fish
shall be able to ascend to the spawning grounds in the proper season and
thus propagate the streams for the
future years, Attention has been directed in this matter to the Skeena
and the Naas, the great streams of
the north, for some time and more
and more is the attention being centred on them.
Last season a start was made in
the direction of the opening up of
Meziaden Lake to the sockeye. This
lake, which is a beautiful one, drains
into the Naas and it is an established
fact that sockeye salmon only ascend
streams that have a lake at the end.
There was a waterfall on the Meziaden River that connected the lake
with the Naas and made it exceedingly difficult for any fish to run up
it, except at very high water. In view
of the fact that the lime when the

sockeye were running the water was
rather low it was very problematical
whether there were any fish getting
up.
With the co-operation of the Dominion Government, the Provincial
authorities last year started in on a
policy of opening the stream up for
the fish. The rocks that interfered
with the ascent were blasted out and
prepartions made for the putting in
of the fish ladder that would allow
the fish to get up. The blasting was
done in the winter when there was
low water and this summer the work
of putting in a cement ladder for the
fish is in progress.
J. P. Babcock, the fishery expert
of the Provincial Government, is in
the city, having arrived last evening
after a visit to the locality. He reports that the work is going along
all right. He expects that before the
sockeye get to the place there will
be the facilities for getting into the
higher waters and if the fish run
there this summer they will be able
to freely reach the spawning ground
beyond.
In the Naas, in common with the
Skeena and all the other rivers this
year, there is an absence so far of
sockeyes. Mr. Babcock expects that
there will be a run later, but he says
that this is something about which

Masset, July 10.—It has been the
custom for generations to catch salmon off the rocky coast of I.angara
Island. The Indians were the only
fishermen and they trolled for a few
days In each year, for the food they
required, before the Hudson's Bay
Company first sent In their traders.
One of the intelligent Indians of the
Masset band informed Mr. Wallace of
the Wallace Fisheries Hint --king," or
what the Indians called '-spring"
salmon might be caughl In large
numbers and II was decided to make
the attempt   in  a  commercial   way
I during the month of June    of last
! year.
A oannery was erected al  Nader
I Harbor and  one    liundri il    Indians
weni nut In their small boats, starling early in June, and continuing until the middle of July, They received
three cents per pound for the fish
and turned In three thousand dollars
worth of Ibis kind of fish. The placing of the spring salmon in cans had
never been tried before In large
quantities, and it was found that the
canned product resembled "pink"
salmon, or what is commonly known
as "humpback," the salmon changing color when prepared for export
from a deep red to a pink. This product will not bring the same prices
on the market with "sockeye" and
"cohoe" salmon, which retain their
deep red color, and it was decided
to discontinue canning and mild cure
this year's catch.
Early in the spring It was apparent
that, there would be a large demand
for spring salmon, and the Indians
prepared to make a record catch.
They built boats and obtained a large
number of trolling lines during the
winter, and  all of the families left
for Langara Island on May 1 last. A
number of Icelanders arrived and
they also took up the work. Hundreds of fishermen from the south
and from Prince Itupert decided to
"try their fortune" in the new occupation. When the season commenced
over four hundred boats were on the
fishing grounds. Three companies
sent out launches and steamers to
gnthei In the harvest and the fishing
commenced In earnesl  on  May  20,
Bach iisi.enniin carries a line from
100 to 800 feei iu length; some have
"spoons" which sj:iu through the water, flashing bb they turn and much
resembling a small fish In motion,
Other Fishermen used herring bait,
Tin- bonis are rowed hither and
thither, aboul one-half mile off
shore, ami only siiqi when n flail Is
on the line. It has inn been unui ual
to see one fisherman haul iii ten salmon during a day averaging thirty
pounds, One of the largest caughl
this year weighed one hundred
pounds.
Several tourists are engaging in
the sport, including Seton Ker,
the noted traveler and writer. A few
of the suffragist sex are nlso fishing, one of Ihe women having over
6ne hundred fish to her credit. During the early days of the fishing season the fish were very large and
some trouble originated with the
fishermen over the price of the fish.
The Indians asked for five cents per
pound, an Increase of two cents over
the price paid last year. The purchasers considered this demand too
high and fishing was suspended for
a few days. A number of the white
fishermen held meetings and decided
lo demand live cents also. The purchasers offered four cents per pound
and a compromise was effected
which has been In force ever since.
The fishermen do not leave the
fishing grounds to hand over their
catch, a mosquito fleet dodging in
and oui along the coast gathering
and weighing the fish, each fishermen having an account hook Iu which
the catch Is entered, That the fishermen have been doing well Is evidenced by the fact that on of the
Indians turned III *;!-"" worth of fish
latter twenty days fishing during the
month of June.
Il w,-is thought thai the only haunt
of this fish in the neighboring wa-l
ten   Of   lli-caie   Straps   wan     inn   i
Langaru Island, but the "prospectors" sent oui hi the canneries and

all around Graham  island.    Al the
present time but one coi ipany is purchasing the ii.-i:, tor iii-- reason that
tnose now being caughl  are nol so
large as those captured In the early
part of the season, many of the Indians being of the opinion that they
are of  the species  known  as  "blue-
backs," and  weighing    from    ten to
twenty pounds each.  It  is a  problem
to he explained where these fish have
llielr spawning ground.    The small
rivers of the Queen Charlotte islands
are visited by very few of the spring!
salmon, Ii Is probable that they come
from  the   rivers  of  Alaska  and  the,
Naas and  Skeena rivers.  In the waiters of no oilier pari  of the Pacific j
; Coast are they so plentiful as around
; the  Queen   Charlotte   Islands.   Earh
year they return and disappear aboul
I the until of this month, The fishing
season lasts from the middle of .Ma,
1 until that date,
I    Following ihe spring Balmon wil1!
come the pinks and coboes. Later In
tho year, the "dog" salmon, which is
prized by the Indians, will run. Last
year the pink or humpback salmon
were so plentiful that It was found
impossible by the canneries to handle
them. There appeals to be a misunderstanding regarding this fish, in
the open waters and at the mouth of
a river they are the most beautiful
of fish. As n food fish they are not
excelled by the sockeye or cohoe. Although of the same color when
caught, ihe pink salmon changes after canning and does not bring ih<-
Bamo price as the other species,  A
marked chang imes over tho pink
Balmon us ii ascen I the rl ,-ers and
Btreams, li flattens oui «iih a hump

Btreamg, The hears, eagles, raiens,
and other blrda and i» ai is prey on
ihe pink Balmon and the doglIsh attack  it  In  the open  waters.
According to ili<- regulations of the
Fisheries Department fishing for salmon is noi allowed In the rivers and
streams of the Islands, None of the
rivers are navigable for large steamers and a net stretched across the
mouth of any river would block the
whole entrance. ExperlB have recently visited the streams and lakes for
the purpose of Inspecting the spawning grounds. The Yakoiin, Ain, West,
Woden, Mainmin, Owen, Deenan, Ja-
l.iun, Tel-el, Hi-elen, Skidegate
Chuck, and smaller streams are all
visited by salmon. The large lakes at
the head of each river are filled with
trout.

f-;and Trunk Pacific is In full swing

Some have been complaining that
Mr. Stefansson has received niggardly treatment from the Canadian Government in connection with his trip
to the Arctic. Mr. Stefanss apparently noes not share their opinions.
Willing to Lloyd's News, London, he
says:
"This expedition, 1 may claim, differs in a fortunate way from any
others thai have sailed northward.
While money has not been squandered on its equipment, the Canadian
Government has stinted no expenditure in order to provide everything
necessary. The Dominion lias also
given me a perfectly Tree hand In
choosing the men and equipment and
Mores, and for thai I am very grateful, for it means much to a leader
that he should not be trammelled in

shape to handle a bumper crop. We
have more rolling stock and our lines
are in better condition. Our terminal
facilities are excellent.
"If we find the strain at Fort Wil-
lian getting severe we can switch
over to Duluth. By the middle of the
winter I expect we shall be able to
move grain right to Montreal by
rail, The connecting lines are rapidly approaching completion.
"At present, of course, the Canadian Pacific Railway affords the
only means of shipping grain east,
but in another few months there will
be three—the Grand Trunk Pacific
and our own line as well."
"Do you expect the present financial stringency to affect the movement of the crops unfavorably?" ho
was asked.
"No, I don't think so," lie replied.
"The banks always seem able to
scrape together enough money for
that. I don't think the stringency
will be so serious then, anyway.
People are not so eager to go into
new enterprises now as they were
some time ago, and there Is not much
demand for money for new projects.
"The present tightness has been
due largely to the great prosperity
of the last few years, where it. has
caused a great expansion In all lines
of business and conseoent heavy call
for capital. Slackening this year
should bring things back to normal."

will visit the islands for rest and recreation, where they may engage in
fishing to their hearts' content. When
such men as Seton Ker, who is a
world-wide traveler, spends two
seasons at our fishing grounds after
trying all the known sporting
grounds of the world there is reason
to assume that others will become
interested In the many features for
spending a vacation on the "evergreen islands," only a few miles from
