Miss Christina Goodall. Both couples
are very popular and a large company

Langara Light Operating By June.
By the beginning of June the big new
first order light at Langara Island, of
the Queen Charlotte group, will be in
operation, according to Captain Frank
Saunders, head of the Digby Island
Marine Depot. Captain Saunders inspected the construction work recently,
and says that the huge lantern will soon
be installed, and the first beam of light
will be flashed from the tower about
the beginning of June. The light will
be one of the most powerful on the
Pacific coast, and in clear weather
mariners will be able to pick it up 15
miles off.
Lights will be placed on Rose Spit
and at the entrance to Massett Inlet
during the summer.
Important Amendment to Game Act.
Important changes to the Game Protection Act of British Columbia was
passed recently in the Legislature.  The
measure provides, among other things,
that it shall be unlawful for any resident
of the province to hunt animals or birds
or to carry firearms of any description,
or air guns, or any device for the purpose of capturing any animal or  bird
without first taking out a license.    In
addition to taking out a license, hunters
will be required to wear a badge showing the number of their licence.   These
licences will not be transferable.     Any
breach of the act involves cancellation
of a hunter's licence.  Licences will not
be issued to boys under sixteen except
at the written  request of parents or
guardians,   who  shall undertake that
such boys, when carrying firearms, will
always be under their supervision or
that of some responsible licence holder.
There are three classes of licences:  an
ordinary,  to  carry firearms  and  hunt
birds and deer, other than moose, wapiti
and cariboo, costing $2.50; a general, to
hunt game, birds and animals, $5;  a
special, to carry firearms and trap, $10.
Holders of general or  special licence
must, within fourteen days of date of
expiration,  return the licence to the
provincial game warden with a sworn
statement of the number of each species
of big game or animal trapped.     Prospectors having a free miner's certificate may obtain ordinary licences during the open season, while actually engaged in prospecting; so may farmers
and their sons hunting on  the land on
which they permanently reside.     Any
firearm found in the possession of any
person not having a licence may be
seized and confiscated.

Letter From W. A. Robertson.
The Land Act.
The are many salient features in the
Amendments to  the  Land  Act which
appeal to pre-emptors and others.     In
any part of this Province, where open
land can be taken up by a pre-emptor,
it will be quite  easy to  carry out  the
amendments to   Section 28, which  includes "permanent improvements to the
value of five dollars per acre, including
the clearing and bringing under cultivation  of  five  acres."    Without in any
way desiring to throw obstacles in the
way of the government or prospective
settler, it must be apparent  that  few
can take advantage of the provisions of
the   amendments   without   assistance
from the government or monied institutions, in the way of loans.     It is well
known that our sea coast and inlets are
covered with timber—some of it merchantable, and other sections open for
pre-emption—which will  cost  a  large
sum to clear.   Our pre-emptors are poor
men and we  trust  that every inducement will be placed in their way to people
the islands.     Is it worth while settling
on some of the land that will, eventually
prove valuable ?  There are may quarter
sections where it is possible  to  carry
but the provisions of the amended act.
It is nothing but  right  that  the  pre-
emptor should improve his holding, and
there is no doubt that some have done
their duty.   The honest pre-emptor, and
we have a large number of first class
settlers  on the  islands, is anxious  to
carry out any and all of the conditions.
It is to be hoped the free grants  will
bring in many seeking homes.   In speaking of the development of the country,
in   introducing the   amendments,   the
Hon. Mr. Ross remarked:    "In certain
sections of the province, particularly on
Graham Island, the activities of those
seeking to develop the coal resources
have run counter to the intending settler
in the closing of other areas.    Such antagonism, however, as has presented itself, is more fancied than real, and will
be confined to the initial efforts of the
lumberman and the miner in the direction of the development of the national
resources they have selected for  their
attention, as in the end their success
will spell greater success for the farmer,
To the Editor of The Islander.
Dear Sir,—There is one important
part of Graham Island which seems so
far to be overlooked and hardly ever
mentioned, and that is Rennels Sound,
which, so far as known (not having
been surveyed), has all the appearance
of being a magnificent harbor. It is
the only harbor on Graham Island where
large colliers and large steamships can
come in and load coal. In 1885, when
the late James Shields and myself discovered coal, at what is now known as
Camp Wilson, we continued up the Yakoun River to Yakoun Lake, and after
prospecting around the lake we climbed
the mountain in the direction of Skidegate Inlet. When we got to the summit
we camped, and noticing a high peak to
the east of us, we climbed to the fop to
have a view of the country. As it happened to be clear weather we obtained
a fine view in every direction, but what
interested us most was an arm of the
sea that appeared to be but a short distance west of Yakoun Lake, which I
believed to be Rennels Seund. If it
was a good harbor and easy of entrance
it was what would be wanted, so that
the largest colliers and steamers could
enter and load coal, as there was no
other harbor on Graham Island where
this could be done. A short time afterwards, when we were at Gold Harbor,
James Shields and an Indian went to
Rennels Sound and examined it and took
some soundings, and finding it all that
we wished he putup our location notices.
He noticed there were fine streams of
fresh water, good sites for coal bunkers,
and a perfectly protected harbor inside
of what is now known as Shields Island.
The island is named after him and is a
good name otherwise, as it is a fine
shield from the waves of the Pacific.
Since that time I have learned more
about Rennels Sound, both inside and
outside. There is a large wide bay sets
in towards the entrance to the sound,
and there is a high peak called Emmons
Peak, at the south side of the entrance,
which can be seen from the sea for many
miles and a splendid guide to the entrance to the harbor of Rennels Sound.
I hope the harbor will soon be surveyed
and charted, so that if there are any
obstructions it will be known where they
are. Coaling stations was an important
question some few years ago, and I
suppose is yet, and if a coaling station

is ever required that can easily be fortified, Rennels Sound is the place. There
is a high mountain at' the head of the
harbor, called, I believe, after myself,
as I was the first white man to climb it.
That mountain can be made a Gibralter.
Neither dreadnaughts, airships, sub-
marine, or any other devilish invention
could capture it as long as provisions
and ammunition lasted. I called the
attention of the late Sir John McDonald
to it when he was in Victoria* and asked
him if he weuld call the attention of the
Admiralty to it, and he said he would;
and he did, as I seen notice of it afterwards.   I also called the attention of an
Admiral of the Fleet on this station to
it, and he returned me an answer that
it was not, as yet, a stragetic position,
which I suppose is correct, but it might
suddenly become one. The scenery
around Rennels Sound is very fine and
some time it will be a summer resort.
There are some strong mineral springs
near there and other interests that will
yet be of value.

HAIDAS AND THEIR LEGENDS
(Continued from page 3)
the owner of the house had secretly and
unknown even to his own wife made a
trap door in the floor which he kept
covered during daylight with a Haida
made cedar mat upon which every night
he spread his blankets, and when all
were asleep and the house in darkness
he would steal through this trap door
then travel quickly under the nouse, the
floor of which was high enough from the
ground to allow of him accomplishing
this feat easily. Withasledge hammer
in his hand he would give the house two
or three terrific blows which sounded
dreadfully during the silent night
watches to those within, and before
they could get their lamps lighted he
would return to his blankets and pretend to be as surprised as the rest.
However, as I have said he tried the
Gageet trick once too often. The chiefs
and the men in the house were so angry
with him that they immediately carried
him down to the beach and threw him
into the salt water, and there for a time
he had to remain until the men were
willing to allow him to go home. This
man was secretly referred to as the Gageet until the day of his death. During
the time of this excitement the men
would go armed as an escort to the
women during the day-light hours to
get. in their wood, water, and all others
necessaries. Even after this man was
defected in the act of imitating the
supposed actions of a Ga-geet some of
the old Haidas firmly believed that the
malevolent spirit of one of these
creatures had really entered into his
oody, and that he had partly the bad
influence accredited to the Ga-geets in
his possession. One day the grandchild of an old chief died shortly after
these episodes, and the old man firmly
believed that this mock Ga-geet had
cast a spell over his god-son and had
caused his death. The old man thinking
over these things got out his rifle and
fired two shots into the Ga-geet's house
with the evident intention of killing
him, but fortunately for all concerned
the Ga-geet, his wife and family were
absent at the time, and so murder was
providentially not committed. As Ga-
geets were credited with the miraculous
power of flying generally about a man's
height from the ground the only safe
way to avoid them and take no risk
was for the person so encountered to
plunge at once into the sea or any water
whatsoever rather than court an interview. These old ideas were firmly believed in by the ancient Haidas, but the
present generation have been educated
into the white man's ways and habits
and pay very little attention to the
stories and legends as narrated by their
ancestors.
