GRAHAM ISLAND
0ILJH0WINGS
A FIELD FOR INVESTMENT THAT
OFFERS    EXCELLENT     RETURNS TO THOSE    WHO
INVADE IT.
Showings Are the Most Encouraging
and Indications Are That a Vast
Area Is Underlaid With
Petroleum.
In these days of extensive advertising when capital Is seeking Investment, It appears to those who are acquainted with the possibilities oi the
discovery of a source of immense
wealth that there should be more
progress made in uncovering the
miles of territory extending from
Frederick Island to Otard Bay,
where there is every indication of
beds of paraffine oil, says the Queen
Charlotte Islander. The whole country In that neighborhood shows
shale, impregnated with oil, asphalt-
um, tar and seepages, which all experts pronounce the proper ' formation for the extraction of a liquid so
much now in demand. One company,
working under many disadvantages,
has been drilling for the past two
years. They are expending a great
deal of money, without placing on
the market any of their stock, and
others have organized companies or
taken up individual claims, paying to
the Government the license fees,
amounting to at least fifty thousand
dollars annually. The majority of
the people interested, as well as the
original discoverers of the properties,
are not rich men, and the introduction of drilling plants means a big
outlay of capital. If we have one
prospective industry on the island
that shows evidence of turning out
a commodity that will bring prosperity it is to be found In the neighborhood mentioned. One drilling plant
cannot do the development work as
it should be done, .ne means of communication and the placing of drills
requires an expenditure of at least
twenty thousand dollars by any person or company desiring to fully
test the field. Experts are of the
opinion that the oil wells are at least
two thousand feet below the surface,
and the further the company now at

states most emphatically that the indications for oil are the best in the
world. We have not heard one adverse comment from anyone who
visited the coast. In fact, all of the
drillers who have worked for the
B.C. Oilfields Company state positively that oil will be found in paying quantities. The shale on the surface is In place. That it Is impregnated with oil is apparent to every
investigator. The asphaltum and tar
can also be seen on the surface, and
in places paraffine wax has been
found. In former years Government
experts made a cursory examination
of the territory, and their maps and
reports show that they foun*indications of oil. Coi'.r'dering that so many
persons are interested and that it
would mean much to the island, a
geologist should visit the locality.
The Dominion Government has a
number of geologists engaged to report on our coal and mlnjjal; would
it not be a public benefit for a geologist to visit our west coast and give
an expert opinion on the matter?
From every standpoint this would
be a means of assisting those who
have taken up the ground, and every
person Interested in the opening up
of our Islands.
DO YOU WANT TO BE KNOWN?
The Journal will tomorrow (Sunday) morning publish a
somewhat special edition, dealing with the coming exhibition in this
city, and will give the tentative prize list. This will circulate
throughout the district among the many communities that will be
represented In the city at the time of the fair. Do you want your
business to be known among these people? If you do, get In touch
with The Journal office at once and secure advertising space. It
will be one of the best opportunities you will get to bring your
business close to the people that you want to see in September.

and in the vicinity of Hazelton they
expect to meet W. J. Stewart, of
Foley, Welch & Stewart, the contractors on ihe line. These will make
an inspection of the railway line and
the work now in progress. W. C. C.
Mehan, the general superintendent of
the line here, accompanied the party
to the interior.
It Is expected that Mr. Schreiber
will return to Prince Rupert after an

The flags of the Grand Trunk Pacific fleet were yesterday floating at
half mast out of respect to the memory of 'W. E. Davis, passenger traffic
manager of the company. The word
was received in Prince Rupert yesterday morning that Mr. Davis had
passed away at Montreal, and accordingly Instructions were issued to
honor his memory.
The deceased had long been identified with the company and was very
highly respected. He has visited the
coast at times and made a number
of friends among the residents of the

Informant   in the Indecent Case Refuses    to Sanction    a    Move as
Proposed to  the  County
Court.
An attempt was made by the police commissioners to have an appeal
taken in the case that was recently
disposed of in the police court,
where the magistrate dismissed a
case of alleged indecency. The case
was dismissed on the ground that
there was not evidence produced to
justify a conviction against the man
accused. The identity of the man
was not proved in the opinion of the
magistrate and he accordingly dismissed the case.
Locally there has been a good deal
of feeling aroused in connection with
the case and the police commissioners took the matter up. They felt
that In view of the circumstances
it would be a proper course to appeal the case and have a decision In
the higher court. At a meeting of the
board held on Wednesday it was decided to take such an appeal to
Judge Young. W. E. Fisher, who
prosecuted in the case, was so a'd-
vised and he took the necessary
steps towards securing an appeal.
Yesterday the board met again
with Mr. Fisher, who informed them
that he had taken all the necessary
steps looking to an appeal, but when
it came to the informant to give his
assent he refused to do so. He felt
that in view of his wife's nervous
condition that he did not wish to
have her enter the court room and
give evidence again. Mr. Fisher informed the board that in view of this
he could do nothing, as the informant was the only one who could
order an appeal.
The board has, therefore, dropped
the case, finding that they could not
carry an appeal in It.

It is more than strange that men
who are conversant with this kind of
work are not giving attention to the
ground on our west coast. The British Government, steamship companies, and others who are using
large quantities of oil, are aware that
the discovery of the fluid in this
neighborhood would mean the diversion of a great deal of money that is
now going out of the country to
building up our own. It would not
cost a great deal to thoroughly test
the oilfields of Graham Island, and
a few of the dollars that are thrown
away on mining propositions might
be advantageously spent in proving,

Ottawa, May 16.—Amidst the
greatest manifestation of enthusiasm
on the part of the Uovernment supporters in tho House of Commons,
the Naval Bill has passed the House.
It now goes to the senate to be disposed of one way or the other in that
chamber. The paosing of the measure
In the Commons was the signal for
a grand outburst of applause from
the Conservative benches and it was
some considerable time before the
House could resume business and
forinally adjourn.
The bill passed its third reading
in the Commons at an early hour this
morning. The bill passed by a majority of thirty-two. The Nationalists
voted  with  the   Liberal   Opposition
against the bill.
The disposal of the bill, which has
been held up for months in the
House on account of the factious opposition of the Liberals, will have
the effect of hastening legislation
on important amendments to the
criminal code, dealing severely with
the white slave traffic. The sale of
firearms will be dealt with also.
With the passing of the bill In the
Commons it is anticipated that the
House will get, down to general business and dispose of this in record-
making time. The rank and file on
both sides of the House manifest relief that the end of this contentious
bill has been seen as far as the Commons Is concerned.
George A. McNicholl, superintendent of the Grand Trunk Pacific, accompanied by Mrs. McNicholl, left
yesterday morning for the south on
business.

After a series of unsuccessful
years, shareholders of the Crow's
Nest Coal Company were pleased to
have reported to them at tbe annual
meeting in Toronto that the year
1912 was decidedly profitable, the
annual statement showing net prof-
Its of $471,454, which, after deducting the debit balance, brought forward from 1911, leaves a credit balance of $419,423. Net profits were at
the rate of 7.58 per cent, on the
paid-up capital stock.
Nevertheless, there was some
spirited criticism of the management
at the meeting by some of the minority shareholders, which President
Ellas Rogers showed an evident desire to quench.
According to the directors' report,
coal mined during the year was 1,-
064,791 tons, compared with 359,-
456 tons In 1911; while coke produced In 1912 was 245,229 tons
against 60,659 tons in 1911. During
1911 the mines were closed down for
eight moinths on account of tho
strike of miners.
Profits for the year of the Crow's
Nest Pass Electric Light and Power
Company were $5863, with a total
balance of that company of    $6998.
The Morrissey, Fernie and Michel
Railway has a credit balance of $25,-
078, making a total profit of all companies for  1912  of $509,398.
Mr. Rogers pointed out that during the year the indebtedness to the
banks have been reduced by $568,-
099. At the end of the year It stood
at $795,000, and since the end of the
year the company has paid $70,000
more to the First National Bank,
leaving the Indebtedness now standing at $725,000.

MAGISTRATE'S   DECISIONS.
The office or magistrate in a small
town Is not one to be sought after.
It is impossible to satisfy the public.
Happily, a magistrate in nssuming
the important post does not require
to satisfy them; he has to answer a
much higher standard of duty; he is
called upon to comply with his oath
of office and reach his decisions according to the evidence that is produced before him. Within the last
few days there has been a disposition to criticise the police magistrate on the score of a decision given
in a case which was heard behind
closed doors owing to the nature of
the evidence that had to be produced.
We would like to have seen an appeal taken to another court in the
case, so as to decide the matter and
establish the correctness of the
judgment. Unfortunately, however,
it appears that the appeal will not
be possible.
A police magistrate, like every
other person charged with judicial
duties, is not above making mistakes and coming to wrong conclusions. Unfortunately, on this earth
we have to accept as judges purely
human beings. As a consequence
provision is made for appeals from
the decisions of those who exercise
the judicial functions. This is wisely ordained, and in the end fairly
just conclusions are expected to be
arrived at. Magistrates and judges,
apart altogether from the desire
they may have to live up to the highest ideals in dispensing justice—■
that of deciding on the actual merits
of the case—undoubtedly have always In mind the fact that the decision which they give is liable to be
appealed from. For that very reason
alone the decisions from the bench
may be expected to be all the more
carefully reached.
The makistrate of this city has to
decide all the cases brought before
him upon the merits of the evidence
that is placed before him. There is
no reason to doubt that he pursued
such a course in this case. Without
hearing the evidence it is quite reasonable to understand that the women who were subjected to the Indignities that they were in this particular instance did not take the precaution to fully satisfy themselves
as to the identity of the man. In the
absence of the necessary evidence a
conviction could not be expected. We
would like to have seen the case
taken before another court to settle
the matter. It is probable Magistrate
Carss would have been only too glad
to have had the evidence reviewed
so that there might be the greater
satisfaction felt all round.
It Is not our intention to decide on
street rumor this case or any other
one. That is a system that belongs to
days that are long past and    which
finds its outward expression in these
days only in places where "lynch
law'1 is resorted to. The magistrate
had the evidence before him and was
in a position to judge. The public
has not the evidence, and is, therefore, not in a position to reach a judicial conclusion.
The unfortunate feature in connection with this whole matter is
that the guilty party, whoever he is,
was not caught by men, who would
be readily excused for pummelling
him within the nearest approach to
his death that he will ever attain to
without passing completely over the
"divide."
PROTECT    THE    IMMIGRANT.
The steps taken by the Hon. T. W.
Crothers, acting minister of the interior, for the better protection of
the Immigrant, cannot but meet with
general approval. Hitherto unscrupulous employment agencies have
waxed fat on the fees extracted from
immigrants ignorant of the conditions of the country, and, in many
cases, of the language. The regulations which have been adopted in
council will enable the immigration
department to handle employment
sharks with a firmer hand. Every
employment agent must now display
on his premises a license from the
superintendent of immigration and
keep a register of all immigrants
placed, with particulars of wages
promised, work to be performed,
price for board, etc., and this
register Is to be open at all times to
the inspection of immigration officials. The agent must not send immigrants to a position without having
the written order of the prospective
employer, giving full particulars. No
order shall be filled if over two
months old and all orders shall be
open to inspection. No licensed employment agent shall charge more
than one dollar, and the penalty on
summary conviction for violation
shall be a fine not exceeding $100,
and in default imprisonment for not
more than three months. These regulations were highly necessary to protect the fair name of the country.
Nothing is more apt to dissatisfy and
disgruntle the new arrival than to be
roped in and bled by the waiting employment crook, who is wily enough
to evade criminal prosecution for
false pretences and against whom
civil process is waste of money.

SHIP BUILDING.
The move that is made by the
ship-building interests in Canada for
some form of aid to permit the development of the industry in this
country is of more than passing importance to Prince Rupert. At present this city is not among those
which possess a ship-building plant.
It will soon be in that class, however, and before many months pass
ship building will be one of the possibilities of the port. The Grand
Trunk Pacific in the construction of
the great drydock here, with the
sheds and other facilities for building vessels, has made it possible that
the enterprise of ship building may
be carried out here. These facilities
are not, it is reasonably sure, to be
left unutilized. There Will be construction work carired out there, and
Prince Rupert may, therefore, be
considered to be among the shipbuilding centres of the country.
The demand for small steamers
here will be very marked. The fishing industry alone will call for a
steady supply of vessels of moderate
size. The point taken by the ship
builders in their appeal to the Government as to the increased cost of
production in Canada is a longstanding one. It is this that has made

TUNNEL TAPPING
GLACIER CREEK
PORTLAND      CANAL      TUNNELS,
LIMITED,    NEAR     STEWART,
NOW HAS BORE DRIVEN
1000 FEET.
The   Outlook Is    Splendid    As    the
Work    Progresses    at  the
Big Undertaking   Now
In Hand.
Mining men who have followed
with Interest the driving of the long
tunnel by the Portland Canal Tunnels, Ltd., to tap the vein series of
Glacier Creek at depth, will be pleased to know that the big bore reached
the 1000-foot mark on Saturday
evening, says the Portland Canal
Miner. This is approximately half the
distance necessary to crosscut the
vein series.
According to Superintendent L. C.
White the last week in April broke
all previous records for driving the
7x7 tunnel when the same was advanced 64 feet in the final seven days
of that month, making a trifle better
than nine feet a day. If a rate of
only 50 feet a week Is maintained
the objective point should be reached, it is estimated, some time early
in October.
Ever since the undertaking was
started last fall work has steadily
progressed, with one or two slight
delays caused through the breaking
of the water flume, etc. At present
the rock being drilled into is impregnated with iron, but the management is not basing any calculations
on blind veins, though it seems hardly impossible that some will not be
encountered before the Glacier Creek
vein series is struck.

REAL PROGRESS
AND EDUCATION
DR.   FALCONER,     PRESIDENT OF
TORONTO UNIVERSITY, DEALS
WITH THE  RELATIONSHIP
EXISTING.
He Advocates a Higher Social Standing for the Teachers In the
Country as Progressive
Move.
Dr. Falconer, president of Toronto University, speaking before
the Canadian Club in Victoria a few
days ago on "Progress and Education, said many estimated progress
in terms of the material development to be seen around. Progress
was almost an axiomatic thing, but
people found it difficult to define,
and were apt to associate it solely
with its material manifestations In
transportation systems, great centres
of population or growth of commerce
and industry.
The belief in progress was an acquired conviction, for the origin of
which one must go back a long way,
back to the time of the Greeks.
"Talk of Greek disai.pear.ing,"
said, in parenthesis, the former professor of Greek. "It can never disappear so long as people want to know
the origins of mind, of intellectual
cenceptions, they must study Greek."
The Greeks, he went on to say, had
thrown back barbarism, and on the
Acropolis had erected the temple of
Athena, on the west front of which,
it was believed, had been a representation of the heads of the horses
of darkness sinking beneath the
waves and the chariots of reason In
the East, with Athena, goddess of
reason, rising supreme. With this
conviction the Greeks made it possible to believe that the human
miud has power to understand, to
groin and that there was nothing it
cojild not attempt to grapple with.
Rome had learned most of what It
knew from Greece. It had learned
that mind was reason, that reason
as it exercised itself on its environment could understand it, and that
as the mind reached out further
man could, by the freedom thus attained, develop almost without limit.
The speaker went on to develop
the idea of the continued advance
made through the centuries, and
showed bow the philosophy of the
eighteenth century had made the
nineteenth and its scientific development possible, without which it
would have been impossible to have
the development of material resources witnessed today.
To estimate real progress it had
ito be translated into ideals. At the
root of all modern progress lay the
development of true education; without it there was no progress. The
man who learned how scientifically
to deal with things, who learned
how they could be reproduced, would
provide without limit for the wants
of man, while he who ignorantly destroyed would bring about his own
end.
This brought Dr. Falconer to the
point that educated people were the
people who made progress and the
provision of schools of the highest
standard was the most pressing duty
upon the governments of the day.
The building in which knowledge
was imparted was a mere shell; the
Important things were the children
and the teachers who worked inside
them. What this and every country
required was men and women    who
had so much self-respect, so much
regard for their own profession and
who had such a high standing among
the people that they could mould
the children as none but citizens of
high standing could.
That the teacher in England and
in Germany, too, occupies a higher
social position than the teacher in
Canada was asserted by Dr. Falconer,
and he insisted a higher social prestige must be accorded to the teaching profession. The true progress of
a nation, he believed, was to be estimated by its attitude to its school
teachers.
The work of the university In the
educational system formed the last
branch of Dr. Falconer's address, and
he pointed out that the higher the
standard of education the broader
the tolerance and the more humane
the community.

i would be true, for there are those
who trust me;
I  would  be pure,  for there    are
those who care;
- would be strong, for there is much
to suffer;
I would be brave, for    there    is
much to dare.
I would be friend  to all,—the foe,
the friendless;
I would be giving and forget the
gift;
. would be humble, for I know my
weakness;
I would look up, and laugh,    and
love and lift.

workmen. Then the connection between naval and commercial shipbuilding is illustrated, and it is
shown how the two must work hand
in hand in order to ensure fermanent
employment for the staff. The petitioners see no reason why Canada
should not build her own ships. By
adopting this policy the United
States has enormously developed the
American coastwise trade; at the
same time benefiting American producers by extraordinary low freight
rates. For instance, forty years ago
the rate on wheat per bushel from
Chicago to New York by water was
17.11 cents; today it is 5.35. Today
there Is a large fleet on the Great
Lakes which during the current year
will probably carry 90,000,000 tons
of freight; of this fleet only four per
cent, are Canadian, four per cent.
British and ninety-two per cent.
American, although Canada possesses
hal the coast line^of the Lakes. No
non-American ship is allowed to do
business between American ports,
and no ship built outside the States
is allowed to become an American
ship. Under this system the general
trade of the United States has made
enormous progress. The difference
between the rate of wages paid in
Canada and other countries is one
Important factor in demonstrating
the necessity of Government aid..

SHIPBUILDING IN CANADA.
A memorial has been presented to
the Canadian Government by firms
interested in shipbuilding in Canada.
It not only covers the grounds upon
which the appeal for Government aid
is based, but in several interesting
appendices it shows what other
countries are doing In the matter of
bounties, subventions and subsidies.
It also deals with the difference In
the rates of wages paid in the English and Canadian shipyards; gives a
list of ships built in Great Britain
which are now on the Canadian Register; the same of ships built in the
United States, and, finally, a list of
steam vessels owned in Canada, built
and registered in Great Britain and
operated on the Great,Lakes. The
first feature dealt with is that of
transportation and the weakness of
the situation is pointed out hi the
imperfect development of the splendid facilities offered by our waterways. Canada may be said to lead
the world in railway construction,
but to lag a long way behind in developing our waterways. One- result
of this has been that the subsidiary
shipbuilding and repair industry has
never been properly encouraged and
is In a languishing condition. It is
contended by the petitioners that as
development of the rolling stock industries has greatly benefited Canadian railways, so the revival of the
Canadian marine would be aided by
the development of great Canadian
plants so equipped as to be able to
do the work of Canadian shipowners
in their own ports. At the present
time there are aboul fifteen thousand
Canadian workmen drawing pay
from this industry. The petition goes
on to emphasize how the construction
of vessels develops the repair business, demanding big establishments.
This condition means large yards, extensive equipment    and    numerous
GEORGE E. FOSTER SAILS.
The George E. Foster, of the Canadian Fish & Cold Storage Company, left last evening again for the
fishing banks. The vessel, which had
excellent fortune on her last trip, got
away with little loss of time. The
local company's trawlers are manned
by experienced fishermen and they
have located excellent banks for fishing. These, it is claimed, have not
been fished out before. The quality
of the halibut is, moreover, of the
highest. Most of it Is being frozen
and put away for the change In the
market. The company's great storerooms with accommodation for fourteen million pounds of fish are proving a boon to them.
