 o	
One Million In Fine Geld To Bete.
From the gold-producing standpoint,
the present year promises to show a
marked increase for all parts of the
province. Although the annual cleanups have yet to be made for 1911, fully
one million dollars' worth of fine gold
have "been received at the Dominion
assay office to date.
Of this amount the Kootenay district
nascontributed $200,000; Caribou, $300,-
000; Atlin, $3000,000; Yukon, $100,000;
and probably another $100,000 from
Alberta, the Skeena and Vancouver
Island. The big returns for the year
will not be available for some weeks.
 O	
Dr. Spencer of Skidegate returned
yesterday from Vancouver.
Inspector A. M. Tyson, accompanied
by Indian agent Thomas Deasy, arrived
yesterday on a visit of inspection to
Skidegate Indian Reserve.
The winter schedule of the Prince John
to the Islands will commence November
2nd, and after that date she will only
call every fortnight.
Mr. D. Leroux, of Skidegate, has
sold out and leaves shortly for his old
home near Montreal. Important business calls him back East, but Mr.
Leroux hopes to return again.
The Pacofi trawler Kingsway caught
a monster shark the other day. It was
about fifteen feet long and weighed
nearly 2,400 pounds. Instead of throwing it overboard the monster was taken
to the fishing station and converted into
fertilizer.
The only passenger from Queen Charlotte on the Princess .Beatrice when she
went ashore at Noble Island was W. M.
Perry. All the passenger were taken
south by the Princess Mary, which was
sent north to pick them up. The steamer
is not very badly damaged and is expected to be floated without much
trouble.
LOCALS.
Mr. E. M. Sandilands went down to
Jedway yesterday on the Prince John.
An entertainment of some kind was
suggested at a meeting of the Hospital
Directors on Friday night as a means
of raising funds to carry out some
necessary repairs. A meeting will likely be called soon to consider the proposal.
On the last trip of the Prince John to
Massett a waiter by the name of Samuel Hogg was arrested, charged with
attemptng a criminal assault on a little
girl nine or ten years of age, the daughter of a prominent citizen of the northern metropolis. He was turned over to
the provincial police on arrival of the
boat in Prince Rupert.
A representative of the Keystone
Jewelry Co., Vancouver, called on local
business men this week with a fine selection of goods for the holiday trade.
Those interested will do well to watch
Mr. Beattie's show cases in about two
weeks.
/The oilery at the Indian Village has
done very well for the short time it has
been in operation. About 44,000 gallons
of dog-fish oil was manufactured within two months^
The Prince John arrived yesterday
morn ng and after loading lumber all
day left about 7 p.m. for Moresby
Island ports. Mr. S. E. Miller, is the
new purser, being transferred from the
Prince Albert, and H. W. Awning, from
the Prince Rupert, is chief steward,
taking the places of Mr. Durand and
Mr. Shields, who have left the services
of the company.
Mr. Norman Fraser had on exhibit
last week several large potatoes grown
on his garden. One weighed 2 lbs. 14
oz., and other two weighed 2 lb. 13 oz.
This is a record and is said to be the
largest yet grown on the islands.
Messrs. T. A. Kelley and D. A. Mc-
Phee arrived yesterday on the Prince
John. They will remain a week on
business.
W. G. Reinhart's gasoline sloop Mavis,
which narrowly escaped being lost during the storm of last week, returned
from the east coast on Saturday. Only
for the prompt beaching of the boat was
what saved her, and Mr. Reinhart is
lucky to only report the loss of a pro-
pellor blade.
Mr. Pettigrew, of the lands department, Prince Rupert, came across on a
short business visit yesterday and left
again on the '' John.''
Colin Campbell of the provincial police
has been appointed Superintendent of
the force in succession to the late F. S.
Hussey. Mr. Campbell has been with
the provincial force for many years and
has an excellent record.
Coroner's Inquest
At Indian Village.
Last Tuesday forenoon, Mr. E. M.
Sandilands, coroner, held an inquest at
the Indian village concerning the death
of James Carter. A large crowd attended the court, which was held in the
village hall.
Mr. Ed. Wiggins, special constable,
served summonses on the following to
appear as jury men : T. R. Davey, A.
Duval, Norman Fraser, J. M. Campbell,
W. G. Reinhart and F. Mattock, who
were all present and elected T. R.
Davey as foreman.
The body was viewed by the jury before the evidence was taken and the
witnesses called were J. S. Walch,
Harry Turney, Jos. Ragaut and Dr.
Winte1-, who were examined by the
Coroner.
The evidence given was practically
the same as what was reported in our
last issue regarding the accident, and
therefor unnecessary to repeat.
The finding of the jury was that the
deceased James Carter met his death
by drowning on Wednesday, 11th Oct.,
near Clay Hill, through the gasoline
boat being wrecked.
The Funeral.
The funeral took place in the afternoon and was attended by a large
gathering of sympathising friends from
Skidegate and Queen Charlotte.
The casket was borne from the
residence of Mr. Henry Moodey to the
schoolroom, where a touching service
was conducted by Mr. John Murdoch,
Presbyterian missionary of Queen Charlotte. After the service, a procession
was formed at the schoolroom, and,
headed by the Skidegate Concert Band,
wended its way to the graveyard, where
a short service took place as the body
was interred to its last resting place.
Mr. Henry Moodey wishes to thank
all the white people, and especially Mr.
Walch and Mr. Murdoch, for their kindness and sympathy shown in the sad
bereavement.
 O-
Col. Richard Wolfenden, I.S.O., V.D.,
who has been the King's Printer in the
province since 1863, died in Victoria a
few days ago.
The consent of the Attorney General
has been given to the police commissioners of Vancouver to invoke the
Lord's Day Act. The purpose is to
close up all petty shopkeepers on Sundays, who on the Sabbath do trafficking
in  fruit,   tobaccos,   soft   drinks,   etc.
Three Indians were fined recently for
indulging in intoxicants on the Massett
Reserve.

The Queen Charlotte Islands.
Editor Islander, It has been the good
fortune of few men to travel over a
large part of Graham and the adjacent
islands./ The place is still in its infancy,
with, all told, not more than one thousand white persons, scattered over the
towns and other parts, and about five
hundred Indians./ As you well know-
and it may not be known to the outer
world / the Indians are very peaceable.
It is to their credit that no serious
offences have been recorded against any
of them for many years, and they are a
superior class among the Indians of the (
Pacific Coast. They converse in Englisbr
and are all under the direction of clergymen of the Methodist and Aglican
churches. It may also be remarked
that the Queen Charlotte group of
islands are free from wild animals of the
kind that destroy human life. We have
a number of black bear ; but they are
more afraid of man than man is of them.
In my peregrinations, extending from
North Island to Jedway, inland on the
waters of the inlets, and over the land
contiguous thereto, I was struck with
the immense natural resources that
must, in the near future, be opened up.
We are credited with having the
grandest fishing beds in the known
world, and it is true. The halibut, codfish, herring, salmon, trout and. other
delicacies, for which the thousands of
persons in the large cities are hungering
can be caught in immense quantities.
It is seldom we see a trawler or boat
seeking fish in the waters around the
islands. Only in the spring did a steamer
visit North island and carried away the
thousand of " king salmon " caught, in
a crude manner, by the Indians, The
halibut and herring banks have never
been properly exploited. The Indians
go forth and catch all they require for
their winter food, and they state that
they would catch thousand of halibut if
they had a market for them. Why this
industry has been allowed to go in the
manner indicated is a mytery to those
acquainted with the fisheries and their
possibilities.
The land question is one requiring
careful consideration. It is not to the
credit of any person who informs the
would-be settler that we have first class
farming land on the islands. / We all
know that timber covers a great deal of
the land, and clearing means expense to
those seeking homes. There are few
farmers on the islands making anything
from the sale of produce. It will cost
a great deal to clear the land of timber
and muskeg./ The islands would make
many ideal homes for the men who have
enough to live on them and clear a few
acres each year.    For market gardening
and supplying the Prince Rupert market
there will be opportunities. Small fruits
ripen late in the year when all other outside sources of supply are exhausted/
I have seen beautiful strawberries
gathered in August. Raspberries,
gooseberries, currants and small fruits
of other kinds grow well. Late varieties of apples and other late fruits and
vegetables that are raised in warm
climates, one cannot recommend the
culture of in this part of the country.
When the timber is cleared off there
will be a number of locations along our
inlets that will pay to cultivate. • We
certainly have the largest garden spot
in the north for the supply of the future
metropolis of Prince Rupert, The two
towns, located on Skidegate and Massett
Inlets Queen Charlotte City and Massett—are bound to grow, as Victoria did
after the oompletion of the C.P.R. We
have just as a good a climate; we have
more natural resources on our islands
than can be found on Vancouver Island.
The writer spent thirty-five years on
Vancouver Island and understands the
possibilities of that part of British
Columbia. Our timber wealth alone is
worth millions of dollars. We are just
opening up our coal and oil fields; the
fisheries are now engaging the attention
of wealthy men, which means a fishing
population ; we have splendid clay for
brick and tile making ; our sand cannot
be excelled anywhere; we have good
copper mines ; our waterways cut into
the island and are safe for large and
small craft; the tourist will find a great
deal to interest him ; as a summer resort, the sandy beaches, small rivers
and streams, and camping places need
only be seen to attract a large number
of campers. The wealthy men of Prince
Rupert will build their summer homes
along the shores of our bays, where iftey
can get the best of bathing, rowmg,
fishing and launch riding. With no
dangerous fish in the tea. and no wild
animals on the land, there the fam.lies
must go to spend their holidays.
Would it not be wise uf the Grand
Trunk Pacific Railway Company to construct a tourist hotel on Queen Charlotte
Islands ? It might also be called to the.r
attention that we have several natural
dry-docks in the lagoons along our
shores. Steamers and vessels of great
draught could float into some of our bays
on the full tide, and they would not meet
with a rock or other obstruction. The
sandy bottom of the lagoons are ideal
places to clean and repair vessels.
it is always w.se to ask men to come
to our islands and too see for themselves
the potentialities thereof. Such a trip
would be a most pleasant outing, and
would repay anyone intending to live in
an ideal place, or who desires to invest
capital. The natural resources will not
lay dormant a great while longer, and
the men who first take hold of the many
sources of revenue, awaiting capital,
will reap a golden harvest.

Settlers' Meeting At Tow Mill.
A meeting of the settlers of this district took place in Anderson's Store on
Wednesday night at 7.30 (Oct. 12), with
Mr. J. Park in the chair. After some
discussion it was decided to place a
resolution in the hands of our local representative, as to our needs with regard to roads for the coming yea**.
Mr. Chas. Spence was delegated to
hand in this resolution.
Other matters which came before the
meeting for discussion related to future
harbor development and a wireless
station.
The meeting though fairly representative was not as largely attended as might
have   been   desired,   there   being   only
fifteen settlers present.
Settlers still come and go across the
new trails, but freighters find it very
difficult to bring their teams through,
owing to the unfinished state of the
roads. However, with the aid of an
occasional gasoline boat, Mr. Anderson's
store at Tow Hill still manages to supply
the demands.
. We are assured that there will be a
gasoline boat on the run between Tow
Hill and Massett early next season.
Chas. Spence and Vic. Vigelius have
both built larger and more commodious
houses on their respective ranches at
Cape Fife.
Mr. J. A. Owen, the enterprising
traveller for W. H. Malkin, Vancouver,
paid us a visit last week. Mr. Owen
is an old timer on the Island, having
settled on the Tl-el r»ver some years
ago.
