Article XII.—-The Agricultural Possibilities of Queen Charlotte Islands.
With an excellent climate, notwithstanding anything to the contrary, anything that can be raised in a moderate
climate can be grown on these islands.
Take for instance the Meteorological
report for the year 1902 and we find
that the climate at Massett was as
follows:—
Highest temperature, June, 78
Lowest temperature, January and December, 20
Average temperature, 46.8
Rainfall, 30.4 inches
Snowfall, 59.4 inches.
By these statements it will be seen
that the climate is most equable and the
precipitation moderate. The winter
temperature we must remember is particularly high, owing I have not the
least doubt to the warm ocean currents
that surround these islands. This is due
mainly to the Japanese current which is
continually flowing around this group of
islands. Also in the official report of
the Dominion Geological Survey in regard to the climate of Queen Charlotte
. islands we read "Graham Island has on
its west coast a high range of mountains,
so high that the snow never disappears,
even in the months of July and August.
This range of mountains, is, no doubt,
the cause of the relatively dry condition
of the eastern half of the island. Again
we read in the same report that Graham
Island, the largest of the group, is much
ilatter and drier, especially towards the
east coast, and possesses large tracts
capable of settlement. The Queen Charlotte Islands have been neglected in the
past, and the development of their varied
resources has been slow and spasmodic.
Attention has been drawn to them recently, owing to their proximity to
Prince Rupert and more rapid development is now expected. With the completion of the Grand Trunk Pacific the
islands will be within easy reach of an
important centre." We have no severe
frosts and the snowfall, as I have already stated is comparatively light.
Summer frost I have never known
during my thirty years residence at
Massett. With careful cultivation,
wheat, oats, and barley can be grown,
which will compare favorably with those
grown elsewhere in this province. Hops
grow well and are of great size. All
kinds of vegetables can be grown with
careful cultivation ; onions, celery,
cauliflower, lettuce, cabbage, carrots,
parsnips, beets, mangolds, peas, beans,
turnips and potatoes.   Small fruits grow
profusely on the islands, such as strawberries, black and red currants, gooseberries, raspberries, and when the
Grand Trunk line is completed through
to Prince Rupert there will be a market
for all the produce that can be raised.
Cattle, sheep, and pigs, also horses, do
well on the islands on account of the
mildness of the climate. The Indians
from a small beginning made with cattle
and horses, have now a numerous band
each ; this in itself should be sufficient
guarantee of the suitability of the island
for cattle raising as during the winter
months the Ir.d ans, as a rule, do not
feed their animals but allow them to
hunt for their own food. With a tenth
part of the grants and privileges made
to the Bella Coola settlers, the lands already referred to could be brought under cultivation, and would prove most
acceptable to those who are now trying
to develop the lands they hold under their
pre-emption records. We all know that
the undeveloped portions of our great
Dominion are attracting the settler and
the capitalist. No part of Canada can
offer a better advantage to both than
the Queen Charlotte Group of Islands,
which are rich in minerals, fish, coal,
oil, asphaltum and everything ,that is
required to build up large and prosperous communities. As I have before
stated and this should not be forgotten,
the soil is fit to produce all that is required for the markets of the cities that
eventually will be found along the shore
line of this Coast. Again I quote Mr*
Humphrey: "In regard to the climate
of Queen Charlotte Islands I can safely
say that from the time I started work in
July till the end of October, I lost less
time through wet weather than I ever
did on the coast before.'' He also states
" that the vegetables he saw grown on
these islands cannot be excelled anywhere."
Mr. Arthur Robertson, who can now
be ranked as one of the pioneers of these
islands says : " It is the general opinion
that Graham Island is heavily timbered
throughout, but this is not the case by
any means. Although some of the finest
timber limits in 'this Province are to be
found here, and after you get back a
mile from the beach the country is all
open and you can see for miles. Beyond
a luxuriant growth of grass and in some
places a light growth of trees, there is
little to be found. The soil is a black
loam with a clay subsoil. In my opinion
it i3 the finest stretch  of  agricultural

Sophia left the Clyde a few days ago

trade. Capt. A. A. Lindgren is taking
the steamer out and is expected to
arrive at Victoria about the middle of
April. The steamer is the largest built
at Bow, McLachlan's yards at Paisley,
Scotland. She is a single screw steamer,
245 ft. long, 44 ft. beam and 18 ft. deep,
specially designed for passenger and
freight service on this coast. The
steamer is fully appointed in every respect and has accommodation for 200
passengers. Electric light is fitted
throughout the vessel, and also an installation of wireless telegraphy and
steam heating. The main deck is largely set apart for freight service, the
passenger accommodation being all arranged on the upper deck, promenade
deck and bridge deck. In addition to
the staterooms placed on these decks
for the accommodation of first class
passengers, there,is on the upper deck
a large social hall fitted in mahogany.
On the promenade deck there is the
observation room forward, with large
smoking room aft, the latter part being
finished in fumed oak, while on the
bridge deck there is the pilot house,
chart room and captain's room. Accommodation is also provided for about 100
second class passengers. Machinery,
which was put in by the builders, is of
triple expansion type, giving the steamer
a speed of about 13 knots.
land in British Columbia. It will grow
anything, and there are no summer
frosts to nip the growth." Mr. Smith,
of Vancouver, in his report of the islands
makes the following statement: "The
cattle in the vicinity of Massett were
wading knee-deep in rich pasture, and
the few farmers who have already embarked in dairying have an abundant
supply of milk and butter. There are
thousands of acres of land on Graham
Island only awaiting the settlers to make
it a perfect hive of industry. Roads
are being opened by the Government
and soon there will be every facility to
enable the fullest settlement of the district. - Another feature of this agricultural district is the splendid fruit-growing and fruit producing qualities of the
land. Apple and cherry trees thrive
well, and small fruits should be produced in immense quantities. With
settlement in keeping with the opportunities, the needs of Prince Rupert in

Railway Policy
Of Government
. Provincial Election
On March 28.
Reliable information came to hand on
Friday night from Prince Rupert to the
effect that the McBride Government
would appeal to the electorate for endorsement of their railway policy, which
is briefly told in another column. It is
understood that the Legislature will be
dissolved on March 14th, and writs will
be issued for a general election to be
held on March 28.
Local Conservatives are preparing for
the fray and a meeting will be held this
week for the purpose of appointing
delegates to a convention to be held in
Prince Rupert for nominating a candidate for Skeena district.
-o-
Big Sum For Roads And Trails.
Mr. Taylor, minister of public works,
told the convention of provincial road
superintendents at Victoria that it is
his intention to ask the Legislature to
grant his department an appropriation
of $5,000,000 for the construction of
roads and trails throughout the Province.
-o-
Our contemporary is trying to blame us
for making slanderous statements about
legitimate (?) concerns on the islands.
Everyone in these parts knows exactly
the facts and who is right. Their
aim was to put the "Islander" out of
business at any cost; but they won't
succeed. The public are the best judges
in such matters.
Mr. and Mrs. Daigneault and family
. left on the last Beatrice en route to
Yelm, Washington, where Mr. Daig-
nealt has purchased a farm. A large
nunmber of friends gathered on the
wharf to wish them good-bye.
At the instance of Mr. Wm. Manson,
M. P. P., a clause was inserted in the
Coal and Petroleum Act to provide that
when a license is renewed over reserve
lands, the licensee shall be entitled to
purchase only so much of the surface as
in the opinion of the minister of lands
is necessary for carrying on mining
operations in connection with the license.
The usual weekly meeting of the St.
Andrew's Literary Association was held
on Wednesday night, when the president
read an article on some of Dickens'
little folks and Mr. Barge contributed a
paper on the •" Lost Tribes."
Some "cowardly, illiterate, vulgar
and low-minded" person has been sending insulting valentines to almost everybody in town. The wise ones laugh at
them and put them in the stove; the
fools lose their tempers, accuse innocent
people of sending them, and get themselves laughed at.
Coal Lands Case Is Discussed.
An application dealing with the mode
of proceedure was made in the Supreme
Court chambers recently in the suit of
the Canadian Development Company
versus the Graham Island Collieries
Miles of Road, Involving Expenditure Company.
Legislation Provides for Additional 795
of 40 millions.
A further instalment of the Provincial
Government railway policy was brought
down in the Legislature the other day.
It provides for the construction throughout the Province of 795 miles of railroad
at an approximate cost of forty millions.
Both Vancouver Island and the mainland
will share in the new work. On all of
the new mileage provided for construction will be started within the next six
months and all will be completed by the
month of July 1915.
Dealing first with the railways to
which aid is to be given by the bills
presented, we have the following:
Miles
The Kettle River Valley from
Coldwater Junction to Hope -       -     50
The Canadian Northern Pacific
from Kamloops to Kelowna by way
of Grand Prairie, Armstrong and
Vernon, with a branch to Lumby -   145
The Pacific and Great Eastern
Railway from Howe Sound to Fort
George by way of Pemberton
Meadows 450
The Canadian Northern Pacific in
extension of its line on Vancouver
Island     -■    v-      -      -      -      -   150
Total 795
The line from Vancouver by way of
Howe Sound to Fort George will be built
by a company to be known as the Pacific
and Great Eastern Railway Company,
in which the great contracting firm of
Foley, Welch & Stewart are the chief
members. It will receive aid similar to
that given to the Canadian Northern
Pacific. It .will be approximately 450
miles long. Its route is not fully determined for its whole length. This
railway will give the southwestern cities
of the Province the most direct route to
Fort George, the centre of New British
Columbia, and enable them to hold their
i wn in competition with Edmonton and
Lastern points for the trade of that
region. Connection is to be provided
by the company with New Westminster
and Victoria.
On Vancouver Island the new work is
of the highest importance. The assistance granted by the Government to the
Canadian Northern Pacific railway covered 100 miles in the first instance, pro-
. viding for a line from Victoria to Bark-
ley Sound. By the new legislation a
further 150 miles will be built carrying
the railway through to the Alberni
canal and thence northward up the
island to Comox. Further construction
is projected as far as Hardy Bay with a
possible connection to Quatsino Sound.
The distance for which aid is now granted
will carry the Canadian Northern Pacific
as far as Campbell River at least, and
to within a short distance of Seymour
Narrows. To reach Hardy Bay approximately another hundred and fifty
miles will have to be provided for and
this will be arranged as soon as the
company has its work sufficiently far
advanced to warrant further extension.
Mr. J. W. deFarris explained that the
plaintiffs were instrumental in promoting the defendant company and of
selling them 22,000 acres of coal lands
for $220,000. The balance left on the
purchase price was $113,000, which was
the sum plaintiffs sued for. The defendant company alleged that the coal
lands were purchased by the plaintiffs
at_$4.50 an acre and sold to them for $10
an acre, and they claim to be entitled to
the benefit of the option under which
the plaintiffs secured the lands because
of the fiduciary relationship existing.
If that were the only allegation, the defendants could bring that as a counterclaim, but in the alternative they also
claimed that H. R. Bellamy, the co-
promoter, had received $38,000 secret
commission, and they must bring a cross
action for that amount. He wanted the
defendants therefore to be set in the
position of plaintiffs, and the whole issue
joined in that way.
No decision was given by the court as
an application by the other side for an
adjournment developed and was granted.

TOW HILL NOTES.
Seven new settlers have located in the
vicinity of Tow Hill within the past
week.
Chas. Spence and T. Harrison have
been appointed to receive the names of
those desirous of being placed on the
voters' list.
Ed. W. Baker returned on the last
boat, bringing with him a complete land
clearing outfit, including a stump-puller,
etc.
Robert Entwhistle, of the auxilliary
schooner "Queen Mary," and Arthur
Robertson paid us a short visit last week,
bringing with them a load of supplies
for Anderson's store and five new
settlers for the district. Owing to
a "south-easter"- raging outside they
deemed it advisable to lay at anchor in
the harbor for a few days, and spent
the time investigating the natural resources of the district. All are well
pleased with the prospects.

HAIDAS AND THEIR LEGENDS
(Continued from page 1.)
the matter of milk, butter, cheese and
fruit can all be supplied from the
islands." This year the writer was
successful in growing the first apples
grown in this district. In regard to the
native fuits the crab-apple tree is indigenous, and the strawberries which
cover the long stretches of the waterfront grow to exceptionally large size
for wild fruit. Dr. Ells in his report
says concerning our wild fruits: "The
most abundant seen by us were the sal-
lal; the salmonberry, especially plentiful and laden with large red and yellow
berries; the elderberry, the dog-wood,
honeysuckle, and the wild red and black
huckleberries, togethnr with a bountiful
supply of wild currants. Throughout
the forests progress is greatly impeded
by thickets of sallals and salmonberries,
also by a thick growth of the devil's
club, and by large quantities of the rank
skunk cabbage whose leaves sometimes
measure three feet in length and eighteen inches in breadth. For market
gardening and supplying the Prince
Rupert markets with small fruits these
islands cannot be excelled."
With regard to the farming possibilities of Graham Island, Mr. Merrill, In
his pamphlet says: "Vegetable and
truck farming can be carried on most
successfully; potatoes, turnips, carrots,
beets, onions, parsnips, cabbage, lettuce,
peas, beans, of the finest quality being
raised on Graham Island at the present
time. Fruit growing is at the present
time in the experimental stage, with
every indication of success. Several
young orchards, not yet old enough to
bear, show a splendid growth with
promise of bounteous yeild. Small fruits
on Graham Island find themselves in the
element most conducive to their growth.
Strawberries, raspberries, currants,
gooseberries grow profusely, A glimpse
of the thickets of wild berries in berry
season is conclusive proof of the berry
productiveness of the land. Grains can
be raised and ripen readily. With careful cultivation, oats and barley, which
compare favourably with those grown
in other parts of British Columbia, can
be harvested. Hay does remarkably
well, all sorts of grasses and clover
growing very quickly, the delightful
summer weather affording the best curing conditions."
Thus from all the combined opinions
regarding these islands we can arrive
at but one conclusion, namely, that this
country in which we live is one of the
best places for the ordinary person with
moderate means to locate and make for
himself a home. Now is the time to
come to these islands if you wish to take
up a pre-emption claim, for the land is
being staked rapidly, and the settlers
all seemed pleased with the outlook
generally. With the building of the
much needed roads, the erection of
wharves at suitable places, and a better
steamboat service, it will not be long
before every available piece of land will
be located and brought under cultivation. As these favored islands can produce nearly everything that human life
can desire I would say to the devotees
of industry and frugality, if they would
dwell in a climate in parts of which but
little snow is ever seen, where the
winters are mild and pleasant, where
the summers are cool, where lawns are
green and flowers bloom nine months
out of the twelve, they should come to
this fair and favoured land, where a
small amount of capital judiciously invested will place them above want and
the necessity of severe daily toil. It
will not be many years before there will
be a line of daily steamers established
between Prince Rupert and these islands
which will bring their citizens to this
point for pleasure and recreation, as
these islands are the natural centre, and
appropriately adapted to entertain and
benefit the seekers after rest and sport.
Between Rose Spit and Massett we
have a long beach of hard, beaten sand,
varying in width up to a quarter of a
mile, and this offers a strong inducement to those who seek a summer camping ground or home. It requires no
stretch of the imagination to look forward to the time when fast steamers
from Prince Rupert will run to these
ports in three or four hours and carry
large crowds to spend the week-ends on
these pleasant islands, where in addition
to an exhilarating air and delightful
beaches, the visitors will be surrounded
by ideal agricultural communities.
The   next   article   will   be   entitled
"Reminiscences."
