Rev. William Hogan
Passed Away Sunday
We regret to announce the death of
Rev. William Hogan, which occurred
last Sunday about noon at Old Massett,
after a short illness. A few weeks ago
Mr. Hogan contracted a bad cold and,
although no serious results were anticipated at the time, his condition became worse and developed into pneumonia. Dr. Graves, with the assistance
of a trained nurse, done all that medical
skill and nursing could do, and when
his condition became critical last Wednesday, an urgent message was sent to
Dr. Kergin of Prince Rupert to come
over. The doctor arrived on the Prince
John Thursday morning, but could do
nothing more than advise careful nursing, and returned to Prince Rupert.
Miss Hogan, who is matron of the
hospital at Hazelton, was notified of
her father's serious condition, but unfortunately the beloved pastor had
passed away before she reached Massett. The deepest sympathy is extended to Mrs. Hogan and her daughter
in their sad bereavement.
Before his appointment to the Anglican Church at Massett four or five
years ago, Mr. Hogan ministered at
Metlakatlah and Port Simpson. He
was well known and highly respected
in this Northern country, and his stalwart figure and cheering disposition
will be greatly missed by all who knew
him.
o	
Rev. Mr. Greene and Mrs. Greene
were summonsed to Old Massett during
Mr. Hogan's illness and left on Wednesday last.
The Massett Brass Band secured the
services of Mr. Thomas and are practic-
, ing daily. A number of new members
have been added. The Skidegate Concert Band, which carried off the prizes
at Prince Rupert, are also engaged in
practicing, under the leadership of Mr.
Arthur Solomon. The two bands promise
to turn out a number of good musicians,
and a competition will be a feature of
much interest to the residents of the
north. The leader of the Massett Band,
Mr. Alfred Adams, does not expeet to
take part in any competitions until all
of the players are proficient, which will
take seme time, and may not oecur during the present year.

Wedding Bell^
e
Indian Marriages at Skidegate.
Two weddings took place at Skidegate
Indian Reserve recently, which brought
together over two hundred and fifty
members of the band and invited guests.
The contracting parties were Ida Ella
Moodey, daughter of Henry Moodey,
and George Young, two of the younger
members of the band; and Mrs. Maggie
Bell to John Robson, both middle-aged
residents who oecupied important
positions in the tribe. Rev. Dr. J. C.
Spencer officiated at both marriages,
and the whole of the villagers turned
out and attended the feasts given after
the wedding ceremonies. It is supposed
by a number of people unacquainted
with the Indians, that the marriage
feasts consist of a fish and game repast,
and dancing to the weird music of their
forefathers. The wedding dinner of
the*Haidas are held in their town hall
and tables and chairs are provided for
all of the guests. The invited whites
are given seats of honor, with the
clergyman and agent at the head of the
table. The menu comprises soup, fish,
meat, vegetables, fruit, candies, nuts,
cake, with tea and coffee. Each feast
costs in the neighborhood of three
hundred dollars, and is provided by the
relatives of the contracting parties. A
large wedding cake is distributed by the
bride before the close of the feast.
During the repast a brass band of
twenty musicians discourses wedding
marches and popular airs. After a few
speeches of felicitation, the tables are
cleared away and dancing begins, the
dancers indulging in two-steps, waltzes,
lancers, quadrilles, and all of the modern
figures, interspersed with solos and instrumental selections. The wedding
gifts are usually very useful and costly.
At a recent wedding the bride was presented with a dish on which five hundred
dollars in cash were amongst the offerings. /The Haida Indians do not believe
in doing things by halves, and they are
considered the most progressive of the
Indian tribes of the North, if not on
the American continent.

Two shysters recently convinced the
inhabitants of this bailiwick—who were
trying to form a party organization—
that none but men whose name appeared
on their private list would be eligible to
vote or hold office. The people meditated on this restriction of manhood
suffrage for a month, and then decided
to,have a new election; amending the
constitution for this purpose. They
have now clothed their officers in robes
uncontaminated by contact with the
political polecats.
In moving for a re-election the
speakers should have said: Those of you
who were present at the first two meetings know what took place, being eyewitnesses. But probably you don' t know
what occurred behind the scenes, in the
interval between these meetings, or the
biggest hoax ever perpetrated on a confiding people would have been nipped
in the bud.
A smirking imitation of Robinson
Crusoe with his man Friday—who was
supposed to hold a commission to organize an association in this vicinity—
being afraid of the officers first selected,
declared the organization unconstitutional. Being still in possession of the
phantom commission, they decided to
withdraw to more congenial surroundings, and there draw up a plan to start
an organization that would not be everlastingly exposing the seamy side of
their endeavors to pose as our mouthpiece.
To this end they schemed and swore.
It was no use, however. Their training as heelers had been complete. Their
planning faculties are atrophied. At
their wits end they appealed to a gentleman, endowed with the natural instinct*
of a lawyer, to come to their assistance.
He immediately outlines! the plan used.
Gentlemen! In carrying through that
borrowed design, they unintentionally
pulled off the most fetching bit ef
comedy ever witnessed in this Northern
country. Think of it! Two lineal de-
eendants of Judas Iscariot, a renegade
Grit and his pliant tool, intoxicated with
a sense of official protection, dictating
to you settlers as to who shall be eligible
to vote and hold office in your own
association; pompously referring to an
•Id date membership list of an organization- in a foreign district as their
authority for this amazing affrontry.
Isn't it rich?
Being so highly elated with their
scheme and the brilliance of its execution these worthies decided to seek the
wider and more cultured (?) sphere of
Massett for their future demonstrations.
The last heard from them was the refrain of the Boss's new song on his return from Prince Rupert:
I am monarch of all the new trails;
My right there is none to dispute ;
On this land that's surrounded by sea,
I am lord of them all.   Aint I cute ?
Now, gentlemen, let us remove the
bonds of these would be masters from
the person of our officers, and as partial
recompense for the degradation they
have suffered, let us reclothe them with
clean and suitable attire.
