While in Prince Rupert Mr. Chas. M..
Wilson, who returned recently, met Mr.
Hammond, president of the Natural
Resources Securities Co., the owners of
the Massett Townsite, and they had
several conversations of a very satisfactory nature regarding active development in the immediate future.
A contract has already been let to
the Pacific Coast Dredging Co. for a
dam across the slough, and Delkatlah
Bay will shortly see its first steam
dredger loom up from the South. Three
purposes will be accomplished at the
same time, a harbor or at least a channel on the outside of the dyke will be
dredged, and the material will simultaneously reclaim ssme 600 acres of land
most of it ready for the plough, and
form a second bridge and waggon road
across the slough of a permanent character. The most desirable point for all
concerned and the one costing the least
money seems to be where the bridge
was originally projected by Mr. Baxter
the provincial engineer, namely from
Dietrich Meyrin's block in Delkatlah to
Mr. Harrison's boat-house on the Massett side, as the bay is only 800 feet
wide here.
By means of this dam some hundred
families can be located here on five acre
truck farms, who will be producing immediately and making a living off the
soil, thereby laying a foundation for
other industries and reducing considerably the cost of living as veil as keeping the money on the island.
It is hoped therefore that no one wiil
be narrow enough to attempt to hold
this up on any imaginary legal rights
and thus keep back the entire community, as such enterprise deserves
every public support.
Mr. Wilson says as far as he is con
cerned (here can be no legal trouble, as
he holds an absolute lease to the foreshore, and all deeds to water frontage
have been given since this lease as he
did not acquire the 66 ft. from high-
water mark into the timber till six
months after his lease, by a special
Order-in-Council. He has therefore been
compelled to give a subsequent deed to
this 66 ft. strip as a moral right to all
those who purchased acre blocks on the
front, but these deeds are of a later
date and therefor subject to the foreshore lease. With regard to the lots
fronting on District Lot 361 (the old
Francis pre-emption), Mr. Wilson says
that the land w s already dyked at the
time of the deed. Arrangements have
been made with the Mackintosh property
holders and the Natural Resources Co.
have not disposed of any water frontage.
Mr. G. J. Hammond has made arrangements to spend from two to three weeks
here in the later part of June to finally
arrange a location, and meanwhile Chas.
M. Wilson would like to get together
with all those interested in this plan,
and if anyone has a grouch or a kick,
thrash the thing out and if necessary make mutual concessions, rather
than be bad friends over it.
Mr. Wilson's own view is that an additional and permanent bridge for the
inhabitants of the north end of Delkatlah Townsite^ which will be there long
after the present one has rotted, will be
to their benefit and that a good garden
in front of the lots is better than a mud
flat which can only be used as water
frontage at very exceptional states of
the tide.
Mr. Wilson has persuaded Mr Hammond to bring his 60 h.p. autmobile with
him in order to thoroughly demonstrate
the feasability of the North Beach as a
pleasure automobile road for tourists.
Claude Cornie returned Tuesday from
Prince Rupert.
Mr. and Mrs. Jack Van Valkenberg of
Port Clements were in town on a short
visit this week.
C. L. Cullin, pre-emption inspector,
returned yesterday from Tow Hill and
East coast points.
Jack Parks, who met with an accident
at Wright's drill camp a few ago and
was a patient in the hospital at Queen
Charlotte City, arrived at Massett on
Tuesday.
Mrs. Thornley and family arrived on
the Albert Tuesday from Galiano island.
Mr. Thornley has taken up a pre-emption near the Woden district and brought
in all his household goods and effects, as
well as several head of live stock.
J. C. A. Long, B. C. L. S., returned
on Tuesday from Victoria.
Geo. Mayer of Kumdis Bay spent a
few days in town this week.
Messrs. Monk and Hall returned on
the last boat after a visit to Washington.
James Brown, a well known rancher
at Tow Hill lost all his belongings a few
days ago by a fire which completely
destroyed his home.
The death of Charles Kowgay, one
of the oldest of the Massett indians,
rem ves another of the chiefs who had
his totem pole and was considered one
of the lineal descendants of the former
kings of the island. He died last week
and his totem pole was taken down,
and the brass band attended the funeral.    Rev. W. Crarey officiated.
The territory covered by the season
surveys, a portion of Township 7, Township 11, and Fractional Township 14
extends southward from the southeastern bay of Masset Inlet. The country
is slightly undulating, with sufficent
rise and fall for drainage. The soil is
composed of vegetable mould over a
loose gravelly subsoil. The country
lying immediately along the east bank
of the Yakoun river and to the west
is mostly covered with a heavy growth
of spruce, hemlock, and cedar. Eastward from the fringe of timber along
the east bank of the Yakoun River, the
timber has been burnt off by successive forest fires and the country is now
covered by a dense second growth of
spruce, hemlock, and cedar, which,
while hard to penetrate, will be much
more easily cleared and brought under
cultivation than the more heavily timbered sections. Several fair-sized
muskegs were crossed. These muskegs, when burnt over and drained,
should be excellent for agricultural
proposes, as at other points of the
island where similar land has been properly worked good results have been
obtianed.
The cost of placing the land surveyed under cultivation will vary from
$150 to $350 per acre, depending on the
amount of clearing necessary and the
means employed.
The land surveyed can be reached from
Vancouver or Victoria by steamship via
Prince Rupert, to Masset, thence by
motor-boat to Queenstown, in from
three to four days, at a cost not exceeding $35 first-class fare throughout. A
good foot-trail along the east bank of
the Yakoun River and a skid-road constructed by one of the coal companies
provide means of looking over the country and packing in supplies. ^
At Queenstown, the nearest town,
there are two excellent general stores
where all supplies may be obtained at
moderate prices. At this point the Dominion Government has now completed
a wharf 700 feet long which will provide accommodation for ocean steamships, while two private wharves provide for the gasoline-launches plying on
the inlet.
The same Government has also during
the past year completed a Telegraph
service connecting Queenstown with
the Wireless Station on the east coast
at Dead tree point, and a branch line
via Graham Centre to Masset and the
Hiellen River Settlement.
A good start has been made towards
linking up the different settlements
and in building roads and trails inland
from Masset Inlet to adjacent settlements.
(Continued next week.)
For Spring Salmon.
Manager Picketts of the Wallace
Canneries has been negotiating with
the Indians and White fishermen during
the week regarding the price to be paid
for spring salmon this season, and up
to the present no settlement has been
reached. The Company offer 3 1-2 cen i s
per pound for spring salmon, the fii hei -
men to remove the entrails. Another
offer of onedollar for fish over 25 pounds
and 50 cents for fish under 25 pounds
was considered. The fishermen demand
four cents per pound for all red fish
as taken from tne water.
Mr. Picketts left on the Albert fur
Prince Rupert to announce the resu;t to
the head office. He returned to Massett today on the Company's power
boat "Nahmint" when another conference was held. We understand that
the fishermen will fish for the 3 1-2 cent
rate, providing the company remove the
entrails. Whether the Co. will accept
their demands had not been decided un-
till going to press.
Later.—Mr. Picketts received a wire
stating that the Company will pay 3 1-2
cents per pound, ungutted.
 o	
Building Committee Consider
Hospital Plans.
The Hospital Building Committee met
on Wednesday night when the plans and
specifications of the proposed building-
were carefully considered. Some slight
alterations were found necessary. The
committee expect to complete their vwn k
in a few days and as soon as this has
been done tenders will be called for and
the contract let. It is expected that
the work on the building will be commenced some time next month.

The Queen Charlotte Islands For The
Queen Charlotte Islanders.
To the Editor of The Islander.
Sir, -- Should these islands at the
revision of the' voters' list in November
next have 500 voters, we shall, it is reported, be entitled to a local representative in the Legislature. It is currently
reported that a certain gentleman lesid-
ing at Prince Rupert is feeling his way
regarding the nomination. In my opinion
we have on these islands capable men
to undertake the work of representing
us, and if we allow an outsider to become our representative, or even to get
the nomination, the harmony that at
the present time exists would become
non existent. We have for a long
period been trying to get the different
associations to work in accord with each
other, and now when we have succeeded,
it would not be good policy to allow it
to become destroyed by any outside interference whatsoever. Outsiders come
and go, and as a rule we are told by
them what should be done and then we
are left to fight our own battles without
their assistance. This being the case
lei us one and all stick to the islands
for our next member, and give him a
fair trial. Should he, however, prove
himself unworthy of our confidence
then an opportunity will be given us to
call in an outsider. Let us by all means
try a man thai, we do know first, rather
than trust to an outsider that we do not
know. , Generally speaking at the
present time these islands are Conservative, and we do not desire to see a
split in the party which undoubtedly
Would take place should an outsider be
sent across to contest this district. The
policy of the writer is the Queen Charlotte Islands for the Queen Charlotte
Islanders, and a sensible return from
the revenue derived from these islands
to b^ expended annually in improving
the means of access to the settlers' locations whertby they may be enabled
to get m their supplies and ship their
produce without the present unnecessary
toil and cost. To wish these things is
of little account, to succeed you must
earnestly desire and act. To say what
you would do had you been in another
man's place is the easiest thing in the
world. To do what you ought to do in
your own place is the hardest. Mr.
Manson, our present member, has done
I am convinced his utmost for these
islands, and we owe him our thanks for
the roads) trails and bridges that he has
secuied for us. If, however, we are
formed into a separate constituency,
Mr. Manson will  no longer be our re-

presentative, and we shall be compelled
to select the most suitable man that we
have on these islands to represent our
naeds and requirements. We require
no outsider to act as our mouthpiece,
but one thoroughly conversant with the
islands, so that he may be always with
us and ready to promote the welfare
and progress of our inhabitants. Let
our representative that may be selected
fight for principle and stop there. Other
people have their opinions, so have you,
but don't fall into the error of supposing they will respect you more for turning your coat every day to match the
color of theirs. The writer has been a
life-long Conservative, and he for one
would vote for an Islander in preference
to any candidate that may be imported.
His motto is as already stated the Queen
Charlotte Islands for the Queen Charlotte Islanders, and whatever revenue
is derived from these islands to be returned in a sensible proportion to provide the necessary roads, trails and
bridges fov the convenience of our
settlers.     By advocating such a policy

The "Sentae" has been at it again.
This time it was an assembly [of the
tribe for the purpose of constructing a
playing field or Tennys-Kort," for a
certain peculiar game they play.
It might have struck a casual observer that the play started with the
construction; certainly the "Geen Ealohnah" seemed to enjoy it, and worked
very hard with his lungs and vocal
organs.
Then there was the inevitable feast;
the "Sentae" had been casting longing glances at the Missionary boat tacking about in the offing, but, failing
missionary they had to be content with
pork, and Jove! how they fed.
The feast over, they sat happy and
content, smiling the smile of the very
full up ; I stroked one of them and the
grateful fellow purred. Seeing the
natives were unable to exert themselves
further, the missionary landed. It was
a wise precaution on his part to wait until the feast was over—just at present
missionaries are in prime condition after
their long winter's rest, and "missionary on toast" is always a favorite dish
with the tribesmen. However, rolling
lazily in the sunlight, the "Sentae"
were—for the nonce—very amiably disposed and inclined to listen to his exhortations, which he divided between
them and his motor—the strength, duration, and point of those addressed to
the motor, predominating.
Later, H.H. the Geen Ealohnah held
a reception, and was graciously pleased
to make the following appointments :
To be (K) nights Commanders of the
Ancient Hibernators
The Revd. The Missionary to the
Sentae.
The Graem of Graemsentir.
(This is a most coveted distinction;
the jewel of the order being a figure of
La Somnambula, in moonstones, cou-
chant, surmounting the motto " Festina
lente.")
N.B.—I presented this truthful account of the proceedings to H. H. the
Geen Ealohnah later, and requested his
permission to publish it. He replied
" I don't care Adam "—-which I thought
a funny reply to make; it isn't usual to
sign your name verbally, as it were, at
the end of a sentence in ordinary conversation is it?

What's the matter with you
Pessimists?
If you knew as much as I do about the future of Delkatlah Bay
you would be chasing me up with payments on your lots.
The farming may be a little slow in developing, and the coal seams
hard to trace in paying quantities, but Delkatlah is on the eve of development as a Winter Tourist Resort which will place it only second to Prinee
Rupert in Northern British Columbia.
I am not a prophet, for such prophecy only requires the application of
ordinary common sense.
Buying lots in Delkatlah is like sowing seed—the money disappears like
the seed in the ground only to spring up and yield ten fold.
Canada needs no summer resort, it has all the summer climate it wants,
but from Nova Scotia to the Rockies it needs a winter climate, and that's
what we have. The Spring is the time to sow seed. Sow your wages in a
lot at the rate of $5.00 a month and have a home in town.
Immediately back of Delkatlah pre-emptions are being taken up at the
rate of ten a week.   That will soon increase values.
