Prevailing Conditions on Graham Island
A large number of residents of Graham
Island have been receiving letters of inquiry regarding the prospects for employment and the quality of the land.
The writers are desirous of bettering
themselves and seeking information
from all sources, not only here, but in
other portions of the Province. In
answering correspondents, we are in a
peculiar position, not knowing the circumstances of those who want to leave
their present environment.
Our islands offer a home for many
thousands of settlers of a certain class;
but they must not expect to find
pioneering any kind of child's play.
We would prefer to have immigrants
who are in a position to at once go on
the land, build homes and be in a position
to spend a year or two in making farms
or truck gardens. There island to clear
and drain; hard work for all who want
to come, but with the prospect of mak-
jing a good living.     We cannot call our
island a prairie country;  but the soil
^and climate are good.
j    The steamboat and telegraph service
are   becoming better and  towns  and
settlements   are   springing up  in  all
direction?.   There will be a market for
poultry raisers and  truck  gardeners;
cattle  thrive and find  food  the year
round, and the land can either be taken
up by pre-emption  or purchased from
land companies  at reasonable  prices.
i At the same time it must be understood
that  there  are difficulties  to  be   en-
I countered.     Roads and trails are being
I built during the summer months, but/
Uhere is the difficulty of reaching good|
iland, over ground that has  not been
(traversed, but which we expect to see
{opened up in the near future.
At the present time our waterways
ioffer a means of conveyance for supplies
to many of the settlers, which cannot
be used by those living inland. If anyone expects to find a ready-made farm
on the island they will be mistaken.
There is land and plenty of it, but it
has to be cleared and drained, and this
means an expense of money and time.
Poultry-raisers are the people who make
the most money from their holdings at
the present time, although the Delkatlah Market Gardens ship out quite a lot
of garden truck to Prince Rupert, and
next year will do much better.
At the south end of the island a number of people are making regular shipments of eggs and chickens to Prince
Rupert, where there is a good market,
at prices that mean profit. With eggs
at fifty and sixty cents a dozen, there
is a good thing in raising chickens. This
is an industry that anyone with brains
ean engage in. Potatoes are now selling at two cents per pound, and this is
a good potatoe-raising country; other
vegetables are sold at good prices, and
grow prolific. Small fruits, including
currants, gooseberries, raspberries and
strawberries, thrive here. If anyone
will take the trouble to look over the
list ef prize winners at the recent fair
held at Prince Rupert, they will find
that Graham Island carried off the prizes
for poultry and vegetables. In seeking
to have the land settled up, it must be
remembered that it is not a poor man's
proposition by any means. With a
small amount of money—enough to clear
a few acres—a comfortable living can
be obtained, and the more one can clear
the sooner the owner can increase his
bank roll. It is no place for men who
cannot, or will not, give their time and
attention to the upbuilding of a home.
We want settlers; but do not want them
to come under any misapprehension.
During the winter months there is no
work fox8 those seeking employment. It
is the time for those who propose to
take up land to look over the ground in
preparation for commencing work in
the spring. Good accommodation can
be found, and we have men prepared to
locate settlers and show them where
the best ground can be found. A letter
to this office will be promptly answered.
The class of settlers wanted are the
rugged men and women who are not
afraid to face work, and who have the
means to build their homes and clear the
land. This class will make no mistake
in pre-empting land on Graham Island.
The Early Bird
Readers Are Requested to Emulate His Example.
The Early Bird, as his name implies, does not need to be awakened by an alarm clock, but from
natural temperament and characteristics is always on the spot—
ready when the first material
benefit offers itself. Just so with
the early subscriber. He gets
the big end of the stick by sending or bringing in his order at the
beginning of a big offer.
We now submit a similar advantage to everyone within the zone
of our possible circulation. We
will give our paper, and "The
Weekly Mail and Empire," from
now till January lst, 1915, for $3.
To those who have already subscribed to The Islanderduringthe
past three months we will let
them in on this offer by a payment of $1.00.
How do we do it at the price ?
Well, we have made special arrangements with the big Metropolitan Weekly, by which both of
us hope to increase our circulation, even although attained at a
sacrifice of regular rates.
We might inform our readers
that The Weekly Mail and Empire
will, right away, publish a new
serial story, by Conan Doyle,
"The Poison Belt," which is
equal to the best from the pen of
that gifted writer.
Send—-or bring—-all orders to
The Islander Office.
The Masquerade Dance on Friday
night (Hallow'een) promises to be a
very successful affair. There's sure to
be lots of fun, so don't miss it.
W. N. Toop came down Tuesday from
the camp of the Graham Island Coal &
Timber Syndicate. "Bill" has company
on his ranch at Mayer Lake this winter
and it is rumoured around that the mice
are less numerous out there this season.
Mrs. Campbell and Mrs. Roup of
Woden visited their husbands over
the week-end. Strangers were under
the impression that a double wedding
had taken place as both ladies were
freely showered with rice soon after
their arrival.   There's a reason.
J. A. Thorne, construction engineer
of the island telegraph line, was in
Queenstown last week and stated that
the line would be completed this week.
The phone instruments are expected to
arrive on tomorrow's steamer and will
be installed at the various stations as
soon as possible. Queenstown will have
a combination line, and V. S. Dunn will
be stationed here as operator. Telephones will be supplied to those desiring them, the rent being $3.00 per
month. The telegraph message rate is
25 cents for ten words and two cente
for each additional word.
Hazelton Bros, of Woden are building
an 18-ft. power boat for Provincial
Constable Condon.
Harry Scott, who has been foreman
for Mr. Wright at the drill camp, and
a very popular young man, leaves on
tomorrow's boat for Vancouver.
Mr. E. M. Sandilands, Government
Agent at Queen Charlotte City, arrived
here Monday and made the Government
selection of townsite lots at Queenstown. Mr. Sandilands returns to Queen
Charlotte on tomorrow's steamer.
Mr. and Mrs. F. C. Wright returned
Monday night from the camp of the
Graham Island Coal & Timber Syndicate. Mr. Wright states that work
has been suspended for the winter and
that all the men have left the camp.
Owing to the river being in flood considerable difficulty was experienced in
navigating the stream, through jams
and other obstructions, necessitating
several portages of many miles.
District News Items
GRAHAM CENTRE
Contractor A. J. Richardson has completed his road contract on the townsite
and general satisfaction is expressed at
the thorough manner in which the work
has been done.
Work is progressing favourably with
the Church building and Messrs. Wor-
mold and Shaw, the contractors, state
that they expect to have the building
completed this week. Rev. H. H. K.
Greene visited the scene of operations
last Thursday and expressed himself
well satisfied with the work already
executed.
Mr. Thos. E. O'Callaghan visited here
Sunday to renew acquaintance with the
residents. He also inspected his acreage property, which has been cleared,
and stated that the potato crop was
fully up to expectations. Mr. O'Callaghan has been identified with the Nash
survey party all summer and states that
he has seen some very fine agricultural
land while surveying.
A good road has been built from the
post office to the church and is continued from there to the junction of
Third Street and Third Avenue, from
which point it extends along Third Ave.
to Kundis Bay narrows.
Postmaster C. M. Adam has received
a communication from the Provincial
Librarian at Victoria stating that a new
library has been shipped to replace the
one in service here last winter, which
was much appreciated by the residents
of Graham Centre.
The Graham Centre Debating Society
held its first meeting last Monday night
when officers were elected and a routine
of work for the winter evenings was
outlined, which points to a very successful programme of amusement for the
winter months.
Rev. H. H. K.Green held service here
last Sunday and announced that the
church building would be ready for the
opening service next Sunday at 11 a.m.
F. C. Wright and Felix Graham of the
Graham Island Coal & Timber Syndicate,
were in town Wednesday on business.
Francis Evans visited here Monday
from Nadu, accompanied by Alex. Johnson and Roy Tingley, and were much
impressed with the development since
their last visit.
C. M. Adam, the Graham Centre real
estate man, has received communications from Winnipeg, Regina, Vancouver, Prince Rupert, Chicago, Minnesota,
and California regarding real estate on
Graham Island, which shows that this
island is coming to the front as the
finest and largest body of agricultural
land in the province, and the outside
public are beginning to realize that
Graham Island is going to become the
oft predicted "Garden spot of B. C." QUEEN CHARLOTTE ISLANDER

All over the civilized world, especially
in the larger cities of the Pacific Coast,
there is apparent another of the difficulties in the money market, which is attributed to many circumstances. The
change of administration in the United
States, with the lowering of the tariff
wall, has something to do with the
present depression. The Balkan war
and the uncertainty of it bringing the
other nations into difficulties, is another
reason. Along the whole Pacific Coast
people have invested in land, with rising
prices, and payments to meet. Combines and strikes; immigration; moving
the crop; the bursting of many bubbles;
a thousand and one reasons are given
for the tightness of money, while the
rate of interest has been raised above all
reason. In small communities, where
there is always more or less a lack of
ready money, the price of commodities
has risen, and there is a reason for regret that at this time all of the surveying parties, except Mr. Nash's, have
been called in. Road work for the year
has been suspended, and a number of
the mining camps have stopped work.
Yet, there is no necessity for pessimism.
During the past few years that immigration has trended towards our islands,
a large number of settlers have taken
up their permanent homes on the islands.
They are the backbone of a country,
producing wealth from the soil to fill
their own needs and the needs of others.
News from the North-west is of the
brightest; a bumper crop has been
garnered, which means millions of dollars to the farmers. The near approach
of the completion of the transcontinental railway, with a terminus almost at
our doors, will bring a reaction that will
be felt ia all directions. Our timber
and fish wealth will be opened up before
the close of another year and the mineral
wealth of the islands is being looked into as never before. The future looks
bright, although the present depression
reaches out into the remotest sections.
With the optimism inherent in the
pioneers of our race, nothing will daunt
those who "put their shoulder to the
wheel" and have confidence in the land
of their adoption.

Tassoo Harbor Mine
Being Developed.
Tramway and Ore Bankers Under Con-
•traction—Will Begin Shipping at
an Early Date.
R. R. Hedley of Vancouver hai sent
a complete plant in for the equipment
of the Tassoo mine which he and his
associates hare under bond. The plant
includes rails, mine cars, tramway and
supplies. It is expected to begin shipping to Tacoma smelter at an early date.
The property includes twenty-two claims
and fractions aggregating 350 acres,
and the ore is so favorable for smelting
that the Tacoma smelter has entered
into a contract to treat it free of cost,
so that there are only the mining and
transportation charges to take care of.
The site of the mine is on a land-locked
harbor, with deep water to the shore
line, so that ore can be deliverdd on
shipboard at a minimun cost, There is
ample timber, and water power is available within three miles. The ore is
magnetite, carrying varying amounts
of copper, but there is a width of 28
feet carrying 3 per cent, copper to furnish shipments for some time. As
showing the extent of ore it may be
stated that the tunnel, which is 300 feet
long, cuts 130 feet of magnetite in that
direction, the ore being in bands of
from 10 feet to 35 feet in width. The
portal of the tunnel is in ore, so that
there is a still further width of ore not
yet determined. The tunnel gives backs
of from 120 to 160 feet, and surface
trenching shows ore for a length of
3000 feet on the strike. R. W. Thompson of Vancouver is superintendent.
Bunkers will be built on the shore to
hold 1000 tons, so that shipments can
be made direct from them to the ship.
The present working tunnel is at an
elevation of 1125 feet above the site of
the bunkers. In addition to copper the
ore carries about $1 per ton in gold and
half an ounce of silver. It is estimated
that when the mine is equipped and in
full working order ore can be mined and
delivered on shipboard at a cost not
exceeding $1 per ton.
