Road-Building On
Graham Island
/  " D*^~
/ Road-building on Graham Island is a
mighty hard proposition, especially in
the neighborhood of Skidegate, Hydah
and Lawn Hill, where rock, heavy timber, muskeg and other difficulties have
to be contended against. It takes a lot
of money to build roads, and when the
appropriations are limited, one has to
be considerate and not expect too much
all at once/ This is the impression
a representative of this paper gleaned
from a visit paid to the roads now under
construction on the east coast, between
the Oilworks and Lawn Hill.
From the Oilworks to Skidegate Indian
village the work is exceptionally heavy.
In fact it is in the same class as railroad work, because the road is practically being cut through precipitous
rock. Considering the rough nature of
the right-of-way, a good grade is being
maintained. Splendid progress is being
made and it is expected that by the end
of the season this part will be connected
up with the main road at the Indian
village.
y'From the Indian village the main road
runs close to the beach, and is protected all the way to Lawn Hill by a
"wind-break." It continues to Tl-el
river, but later it is the intention to
connect up with the road from Massett,
via the north beach and Cape Fife.
When completed this will be one of the
most beautiful automobile drives on the
Continent. A lot of work has been
accomplished this season on the part between the Indian village and Hydah,
such as widening the right-of-way, new
"cut-offs," culverts and bridges. In a
few places it-la a wee bit soft, but once
the teams get to work and a top dressing of gravel is laid, it will settle and
harden up. Otherwise the road is in
good shape.
From Hydah to Lawn Hill no work
has been done this season on the main
road. It is in excellent condition and
teams have no difficulty in drawing a
load of two and a half tons over it.
Branch wagon roads are being constructed at Lawn Hill and Hydah and
will, eventually, be connected up. The
building* of these roads will be more
costly than the main road, as most of
the right-of-way has to be corduroyed,
owing to the soft nature of the ground.

The  present unrest, througheut the
whole  world,  caused  by trusts,   combinations and organizations of various
kinds, deserves consideration from the
press and public.     It is the inalienable
right of any man, or set of men, to discontinue   supplying  the  market   with
necessaries, or to give their labor at a
price that  they consider  insufficient;
but it is an offence to combine, for the
purpose of raising prices  of any commodity.     In this world of ours every
man has the right to his own opinion on
all questions, and is a free agent, so far
as his services are concerned.   No man,
or set of men, have the right to dictate
to an individual, ready to sell the fruits
of his toil or his labor.    Every member
of  the  I. W. W. knows this, and it is
the boast of  those in authority in that
organization   that   every   man   is   an
"individualist."     The members of the
I. W. W., if they subscribe to the constitution  of  that organization, knows
that the main plank of  their platform
is " individualism."   At the same time,
we have Agnes Laut's word for it, that
the I. W. W. intends to  tie  up  every
industry, by any and every means, until there is the change in conditions that
some members of that body desire. W„e
have no fault to find with the socialists,
knights of labor,   trades unions,   and
every other organization that claims to
better the conditions of things, provided
they are carrying  on the propaganda
within proper  limits.     When   the  representatives of  foreign organizations
come into our country and force men to
carry   out  dictates,   originating   with
their own  particular  grievances,   and
control    our    labor    market    through
foreign executives, it is time our people
should open their eyes to the imbecility
of following the advice  of born agitators.      The    Vancouver   Island    coal
miners' strike is  an instance.     When
the fishermen at  Langara Island went
on 3trike for an increased price for fish,
the purchasers made an offer  to  compromise.    No  meeting  was  called  to
accept or reject the price offered.   The
fishermen simply broke away and left
those who originated the  trouble  "to
paddlejheir jmiu^m&^L    The I. W.
W.'s and "soap box orators" believe
they have grievances, and have every
right to "air" them, in their own
peculiar ways; but the government of
any country must be in the hands of
the majority of the people, and all who
come here must abide by the laws laid
down, not by paid agitators from the
neighboring republic, but by those
placed in authority by the popular will
of the electors.
