Liverpool, Aug. 18.'—Liverpool
was comparatively quiet tonight
following several days of turmoil
ar.d rioting growing out of the
strike of transportation workers
and allied unionists. Troops, however, continued to guard all the
public buildings and patrol the
streets. The electric light company
succeeded in keeping the city lighted by smuggling into the power
station men to replace the regular
men who quit today. Additional
power has been diverted to lighting streets and houses which for
the past couple of days have not
been supplied.    It was, however,

because of their use of electric
current. All taverns were closed
f at 8 p.m. and must shut down hereafter at. 2 p.m. until further notice.
It was decided also to suppress
the sale of beers and other drinks
in bottle form so as to minimize
the use of bottles by rioters as
missiles.
Nanaimo, Aug. 18.—H. F. Clements of Vancouver, was nominated here yesterday at the Conservative Convention as the candidate for Comox-Atlin in the Federal
election. S. M. Newton of Prince
Rupert, the chosen candidate from
the north, was defeated, owing,
it is said, to the delegates from
the south being opposed to the
wishes of the delegates from the
north. Three ballots were taken
and resulted as follows: First—■
Clements 20, Newton 19, Bates 12.
S?cond—Clements 21, Newton 19,
Bates 11. Bates was dropped on
the third ballot, the result of which
was: Clements 32, Newton 19.
Several districts were not represented.
 o	
London, Aug. 18.—"I
have not given up hope
of arriving at some settlement of the difficulty satisfactory to all parties, and
I appeal to the press as
well as to the House of
Commons to support us.
I hope the men will realize
that it is intended to give
them fair play and not to
lure out of their hands
the great weapon of stirik-
ing."
With these words as the keynote of his speech Mr. Lloyd
George last night addressed the
British House eloquently.
Ramsay Macdonald, labor leader, was prepared to move a vote
of censure against government
for its use of the military in
strikes and because of its general
attitude and feeling in the House
ran high.
Bert Buckingham, G. T. P.
Brakeman, Fell into Water in
Kitsumkalum River—Leaves
Wife and Family.
While out fishing on Tuesday
evening Bert Buckingham, a brake-
man at the ballast pit at Mile 90
on. the G. T. P. line fell off at the
mouth of the Kitsumkalum River
and was drowned.
His body has not been recovered.
Buckingham came here three
months ago from Virginia, Minn.,
and it is understood his wife and
family are still living there. The
matter is in the hands of the
Provincial Police.
Mr. Lloyd George, however,
arose and intimated that the representatives of the unions had
failed to understand the government's offer to form a Royal
Commission which wuold report
what amendments were necessary
to the Agreement of 1907, between
the railway managers and the men.
Another superb launch has been
added to the fleet of fine power
boats plying in and avound Rupert. The "Kipling" a new and
handsome 60 ft. boat just purchased by the heads of the Granby
Smelter arrived Company in Rupert last night and has since,
pulled out for Port Essington and
Goose Bay.
The Kipling is in every way a
beautiful power boat. Developing
60 H. P. with a beam of only eight
feet and length of 60 ft. she is one
of the fastest gasoline boats here
making 15 knots an hour.
Her equipment is perfect. She
carries two dinghies and all appurtenances of an efficient power
boat. Built and purchased in
Vancouver by the Granby Company the Kipling will run between
Rupert and the Granby property
at Goose Bay, Hidden Creek, and
Observation Inlet. She is for the
use of the company's officials.
This morning the Kipling met, the
S.S. Prince Rupert at Portland
Inlet to embark several of the
Granby Company's heads.

There is room in these islands for a
newspaper that will tell the truth, the
whole truth, and nothing but the truth;
a newspaper that will not be controlled
by any private interest, but will fight
for the public welfare; a newspaper,
not an advertising sheet, and that will
give a fair return for the two dollar
subscription.
That is what the '' Islander '' aspires
to ; whether it succeeds or not, depends
on the people of the Queen Charlotte
Islands.
The editor of the '' Islander " is of
course working purely for his health,
and for the good of the islands. Unfortunately, however, he has to eat,
and would be arrested if he did not
wear clothes. See the point? Two
dollars, please.
not tell any more lies than necessary,
for honesty is the best policy. Almost
every place in these islands has suffered
from the misrepresentations of promoters. / People who come to Queen
Charlotte expecting to find "electric
light, city water and miles of sidewalks '' are disappointed when they see
the reality, and get predjudiced against
the town, though it is the most progressive on the islands. In the same
way the advertising of "Graham City"
has in the long run done nothing but
harm to Skidegate which will one day
| be a flourishing fishing station./ We
' understand that a strong company is
being formed to take over Skidegate wa loggers
and other fishing stations, and run them
with money instead of hot air. Ready
money, common honesty and common
sense are the passports to success on
these islands as elsewhere; they have
been strikingly lacking in some recent
promotions.

Some one who thinks he owns the

record.

Round The Islands
SANDSPIT.
The long spell of dry weather is beginning to tell on the crops, but no
serious harm has been done yet.
Mr. Rudge and family have gone to
Copper Bay for the haying.
The survey ship Lillooet's launch is
working around here, and a thoroughly
reliable chart of these waters, which
have changed somewhat since they were
surveyed forty years ago, will soon be
available. The surveying will not do
the Sandspit much good, unless the
wharf is repaired so that steamboat
captains will be willing to call here.
At present all the freight for this port
has to be landed at Queen Charlotte or
Skidegate, and brought from there in
launches or scows, at great expense.
The repairing of this wharf would be a
better use of Government money than
bu;lding new wharves at places where
they are not wanted, such as Queen
Charlotte.
SKIDEGATE.
Mr. Leroux has sold out the hotel to
Mr. C. De Pape, who has been running
a hotel at Law Hill. Mr. De Pape
finds business at Lawn Hill too dull, and
bes'des hopes that the addition of his
family to the children already at Skidegate will make it possible to have a
school there. This will make four
schools on the islands, where two years
ago there were none.
Fire Warden George Carmichael returned from a trip to Massett last
week. He reports that no serious fires
have occurred this summer, although
there are a few small bush fires on the
east coast.
INDIAN VILLAGE.
The Indians who went to the Skeena
to fish have been having poor luck, and
every   cteamer  brings  some  of  them

Berry-picking is in full swing. A
party of white people from the townsite
looted William Price's garden on Maude

Price does not intend to let it go at
that, but will see if the law does not

"With a manner gay and debonair.
He wrote "has went" with great eclat,
And thought it was without a flaw.

ir QUEEN CHARLOTTE ISLANDER
Early Missionaries on
The Queen Charlottes
Within the memory of our oldest
inhabitants, comparatively little
was known of the islands, standing
like gaunt sentinels, between
vhe mainland of the Province of
British Columbia and the shores
of Asia. The first white visitor,
who spent more time than others
who merely traded with the Indians, was the Rev. W. Duncan, a
former missionary of the Anglcan
Church. He visited the camps,
scattered over the East and West
coast of Graham Island, bringing
lo the natives tidings of a "promised la7~d" where "peace and goodwill" are attainable to all races
of men no matter their condition
or color. There, on the wave-
washed shores, Rev. Mr. Duncan
found the remnant of a once
powerful nation, a nation feared
by all other tribes ard still one
of the most robust of the fast-
disappearing race.
A Fighting Race
It must be conceded that the
Hydah's of the Queen Charlotte
Islands saved to this country this
portion of the Province. Thirty
thousand warriors guarded the
stretch of land, from Behring
Straits to the Frr.ser River—
watching over the waterways, in
their large war canoes, and keeping
time, it was not safe for traders
or others, to visit the camps.
Noble Missionaries
Archdeacon Collison and his
family, were instrumental in bringing about many of the conditions
that exist today, on the north end
of Graham Island. Twenty-eight
years ago they were assisted by
the Rev. C. Harrison who is still
hale and hearty and has made his
home on the island for that number of years. The Methodist
Church arranged to take the spiritual care of those living on
Skidegate Inlet and in the neighborhood of the south end of
Graham Island, where the church,
schoolhouse and other modern improvements, show the marked progress made in the short time the
natives have been under the supervision of the earnest men and
women who devoted their lives
to the uplifting of the Indian.
Are Peaceable Now
It has been the bane of British
Columbia, in the populous cities,
to  hear the  remarks  passed  on
the dangers from the natives of
this Province.    There are many,
even to this day, who fear that
their lives will be in jeopardy
should they attempt to visit the
back the hordes of Russia, on the
one side, and the Chinese and
Japanese, on the other. Every
male child was trained in the art
of war, and tribute in slaves and
treasures of skins of the wild
animals were levied on the surrounding Indian tribes. The past
history of British Columbia shows
that no people were more independent ard feared than the Hydah's. Their villages still show the
numerical strength of these Norsemen of the North Pacific.
Indian Customs
It was their custom to place the
bodies of their dead on the top of
spruce trees, which had been sawed
off, about ten feet above the
ground. There the skeletons of
past generations can be seen today,
in the grass-grown, deserted camps
along the shores. In some places
the totem poles, and other marks
of habitation, can be seen for
mary miles, while, in the interior of the islands, no evidence
can be found of their leaving the
coast line. During the past half-
century the noble missionaries induced this warlike nation to assemb
le in two villages, where they
could be taught and brought under
the guidance of the government
of the country. Prior to that
Province. One argument and one
only, need be adduved to prove
that the Indians are peaceable,
and that is a fact, beyond dispute,
that but one police officer can be
found on the Queen Charlotte
igroup, and he resides in a settlement of whites.
Progressive Indians
The astonishment of strangers
can be better understood, on their
visiting the Indian villages, when
it is stated that the natives show
them their schoolhouses and churches; their town halls and well-
kept streets; their co-operative
stores and gasoline launches; their
well-dressed women and children
and the sanitary arrangements to
preserve health. In each town
can be heard the gramaphone
and on the streets the uniformed
bands play selections, during the
summer evenings. It may well
be said that the advancement of
the Indian, towards civilization,
is remarkable.
