Declar
War news is scarce this week on the
Island, owing to the fact that the wireless station at Dead Tree Point is under
the control of the Naval Department
and no messages are being allowed to
be sent, nor is any information given
out. Operator Graef has received in-
instruction accordingly.
Ottawa, Aug. 4.—Canadian Militia
called out to defend Halifax fortress.
Halifax, Aug. 4.—The first men of
the Canadian Militia have been ordered
for duty in the First Canadian Artillery.
Paris, Aug. 4.—French arms secured
their first victory in a sharp and bloody
engagement at Peticrix. Corps Uhlans
attacked French force entrenched beyond the town. The defenders replied
with machine guns and mowed dou n the
advance guard of Germans. The Uhlans
charged several times but were unable
to withstand the heavy fire of the defenders. They finally retired in disorder.
London, Aug. 4.—All the European
Powers most active in mobilizing their
forces with all possible energy. Mobilization has not reached the stage
where any armies have met in battle.
Italy, which declared neutrality, will
begin mobilizing tomorrow. Great
Britain's mobilization is almost completed. She has not yet announced her
intention of joining in the general war.
Brussels, Aug. 4.—The Secretary of
the Treasury says another German Ultimatum has been received here in response to Belgian's reply to Germany's
first Ultimatum. Negotiations are now
proceeding.
Paris, Aug. 4.—A French aviator
flying from the City of Nancy passed
over the German advance skirmish line
near Long and dropped bombs inside
the German lines. One of them is reported to have fallen squarely on the
engine of an armoured train the Germans were using on a railway line.
The engine was completely demolished.
Berlin, Aug. 4.—The Germans made
their first capture of war prisoners near
Hohenzaller, when fifty Cossacks were
surprised and overwhelmed by a detachment of German frontier guards.
London, Aug. 4.—The British Admiralty announces the mobilization of the
navy is completed.
The Real Article
From Camp Wilson
t—.,——
Coal  and Coke on View at  Islander
Office Greatly Admired.
There was received at the Islander
Office this week a box containing
splendid samples of coal and coke from
Camp Wilson, sent by Prof. Milnor
Roberts, engin.er in charge of the development work.
The coal, which is of excellent quality
and has been greatly admired, was
taken from a depth of 20 feet in the
Wilson bed, 16 feet thick. Along with
the coal was a can full of coke, made in
an ordinary fire, the samples being
strong and silvery, with much rede-
posited carbon.
Prof. Roberts, in a letter accompanying the specimens, says: "Wilson
coal has been burned all this season under the boiler at our large diamond
drill, with great satisfaction, and is
used exclusively in the forge and readily gives a welding heat.''
Between thirty and forty men are
employed on development work this
season, as well as two diamond drills,
and it is confidently expected that coal
of sufficient quantity will be found to
make Camp Wilson mine a producer
and shipper in the near future.

Birth.—At West Side Ranch, Massett Inlet, on Friday, August 7, to Mr.
and Mrs. J. C. A. Long, a son.
The Prince Albert did not arrive until 10.30 a.m. Tuesday, being detained
outside the bar for five hours on account
of low water and her carrying a larger
freight cargo than usual to Massett Inlet points. She only called at Massett
on the inward journey, and in consequence several passengers were inconvenienced by having to be taken out in
a small boat on her return from Port
Ciements. The mail from upper.inlet

The following rumors from crew and
passengers on steamer Prince Albert:
The Germans have had a decisive
victory over the French, but there was
another report that the French airships
had been raising the devil with the
German forces, so it is doubtful if either
is authentic.
Also reported that C. P. R. vessels
are all being tied up. Its possible the
G. T. P. will get it next.
It is the intention of the British
government to obtain oil fuel for the
fleet in Persia, a foreign country where
there is always the possibility of war,
and where it will be impossible to know
that the supply can be obtained at any
time. The government is aware that
Canada has oil fields, developed and undeveloped, and there is every indication
that British Columbia has oil beds vast
enough to supply the navies of the world.
The expenditure of a sum of money in
drilling for oil on the Queen Charlotte
Islands, would be an investment that
would cost less than the sum expended
on one battleship, yet there are no signs
of any attempt to prove the contention
of the greatest geologist that the world
ever knew. It is all very well for
governments and corporations to preach
that exploratory work is not taken up
and that everything must be proved
before public money is expended. Expecting that one drill owned by a
small company will prove the existence
of vast beds of oil is akin to looking for
a needle in ahaystack. Boring an eight
inch hole in a territory covering hundreds
of miles, is not the way to prove the
existence of petroleum in large quantities. It is safe to assert that any
geologist of note will give a favorable
opinion, after looking over and tested
the field on the West Coast of this
Island. It is also safe to assert that
the enme indications exist from one end
Oi che Island to the other. We further
assert without fear of contradiction,
that no better indications of petroleum
can be found in any other part of the
world. Every geologist, expert, driller,
and mining man, who visited the West
Coast of Graham Island became enthused
with the showings, yet the lack of
capital is delaying the work of opening
up the fields and showing to the world
that Canada has a source of wealth that
cannot be estimated. It has been asserted that the island is of volcanic
origin and oil cannot be found for that
reason. Why is it there in small
quantities with the crude tar, asphaltum
and other fluids that would have been
destroyed, if internal fires caused the
petroleum to disappear? In our opinion
the petroleum was afire in past ages,
and the burnt capping shows that the
fires were extinguished and a crust
formed over the whole surface. If the
country suffered from eruptions, would
not the whole surface be covered with
crevises and lava beds? It is well known
that Japan, and Mexico, are countries
suffering from earthquakes and eruptions of all kinds; yet large oil deposits
exist there to-day. The Calgary agitation on the discovery of oil, even in
small quantities, caused such a "boom"
that millions of dollars  were invested

every day in the purchase of stock.
The opening up of oil fields would mean
as much to the British people generally
as it would to the residents of the Island
and the expenditure of a few thousands
of dollars on drills and in development
work, would be money invested in one
of the greatest undertakings that any
government could accomplish, in order
to have a home supply of fuel for the
greatest fleet in the world. The British
Parliament voted $2,500,000 for stock
in the Persian Oil Company, when an
infinitesimal portion of that snm would,
if expended in developing the oil fields
of the Island, produce labor and wealth
not only to the country but would give
the nation a naval base, free from interference fiom foreign aggression,
which cannot be said of oil fields in a
territory practically governed by Russia.

Massett, B.C., Saturday, August 8, 1914
With the opening of the Panama Canal
and the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway
there is no reason why those interested
in shipping fish should not place their
buildings at the nearest point to the
fishing grounds. There is no doubt that
the North end of Graham Island is the
most favorable place for the catching,
curing and shipment of deep-sea fish.
It is eighty miles nearer the sea than
any point on the mainland and this should
mean a saving in time and expense to
fishermen and owners of steamships.
The fish could be landed from the boats
of the fishermen, fresh from the water,
and would not require transferring to
ves els before being preserved. It has
been stated that fish deteriorates unless
handled immediately and the entrails
removed. There is one industry of this
kind at Naden Harbor, but it only
handles the spring salmon. Halibut,
cod, herring and other deep water fish
are caught and taken to Prince Rupert,
Vancouver, Victoria, and Seattle. Graham Island should be the shipping place
of the Northern coast, being on the
diectlineof travel to and from the
ports of the world and being the nearest
point to be reached on Canadian soil
from the Orient.

Mining Coal In Hie Queen
Charlottes Forty Years Ago
Interesting  Reminiscences  Gleaned  from  Diaries of Late  Thomas  Russell,
former City Assessor, Victoria.
From The Victoria Daily Times.
One of the things about the Queen
Charlotte Coal Mining company's mine
that Mr. Russell found to be an instance of poor handling of the coal
taken out was the tramways, of which
there were two from the mouth of the
tunnel down to the wharf. The upper
of these was at one point caved to
such an extent that it made running
the car dangerous, but in order to
work the mine it had to be used. Regarding this work Mr. Russell has
some caustic th'ingw to say about the
men who passed it, and especially
about Trounce, who had been superintendent of works, "passing a road that
did not stand nine months before it
was impassable. " He concludes that
Trounce never inspected the work, "as
any man of sense could have seen that
a road built in that way could not."
On the very first day the car was
run down the tramway, after the arrival of Mr. Russell at the mine, it ran
away. One of the men who had gone
up from Victoria with him, Laiken,
was in charge of it, having boasted
that he knew all .about running cars
from a mine. He was thrown off and
his skull fractured, but in spite of lack
of medical attention he was up and
about in a day or two, though he always complained afterwards of swimming in his head. Another man was
very badly injured some weeks later,
a third was very much bruised at another time, and on several occasions
Mr. Russell and the men had the narrowest of escapes. Twice the car
broke through the barriers at the end
and went over the wharf, necessitating
repairs and, on the second occasion
practically rebuilding.
Tobogganing down the incline on the
car seems to have been a great attraction for the Indians before Mr. Russell
arrived on the island. Of their liking
for this and the means he had to take
to stop the practice, he says: "When
I first arrived here I found the car
standing with the wheel off, and upon
inquiring why, Branch told me it was
to prevent the Indians pushing her up
the track and then riding down on her.
They were in the habit of doing this
after the men had gone to bed, and
laughed at him. I ordered the wheel
to be put on and kept on, at the same
time telling the Indians that if I ever
found them moving it from its place
without my permission I would chastise them most severely.
"Things went on  all right  until last
night, when I heard them moving her
very cautiously up the track. I rushed
up on to the bridge and made for them
but they saw me coming and ran away
like a lot of young deer. I gave them
chase and succeeded in capturing two.
They were only boys, so I gave them
a good shaking and made them drag
the car back to its place. I had not
been more than half an hour in the
house when I heard her being moved
again. I went out and called to them
to stop, which? they did. Four men
had possession of her this time, and
stood by the car until I came up. I
collared the first fellow  within  reach,
gave him a good shaking and boxed his
ears. When the others saw me let
fly my fist at him, they ran away like
so many cowardly dogs. I made this
fellow push the car back to its place
and '.old him if I found any of them
trying the like again I should take a
stick to them."
The cave in the tramway got so bad
that towards the end of the year Mr.
Russell had to set the men to work
to cut a new roadway Out of the mountainside for a considerable distance, so
that a new track could be laid and a
sharp curve reduced. All these things
meant delay and loss of time in the
mine, and what between the breakages
of the car, the rebuilding of the roadway, the cleaning of coal thrown on
the chutes without being cleaned, and
the time lost by men being injured, the
fine weather passed by and the rains
of the winter season were falling be-
for mining could be carried on in a
satis actory manner.
On  Christmas  day,   1870, a ship arrived at Skidegate which had come for
a cargo of coal from   the   mine.     This
was the Lulu, and the  master was one
Capt. Knowles.     Of this  mariner   and
his dealling  with   the  Indians during
his stay Mr. Russell speaks with thorough disgust and contempt.     Knowles
appears to have merited all that is said
against  his  character.     He  was frequently warned by Mr. Russell against
giving  whiskey    to   the   Indians,   and
promised not to do  so, but he seems to
have   been     debauching   the    natives
wholesale, and after the   ship had sailed it came to   Mr.   Russell's  attention
that the captain had  a  large  quantity
of Indians whiskey on  board  and that
he was offering this  for sale  while he
was lying off Skidegate for a favorable
wind.    He got no purchasers, however.
He would not take  anything but cash,
while the Indians  had  no   money   and
offered skins,  which he would not  accept.
The vessel was nearly a month at
the mine, and outside before she got
away for Victoria with 435 tons of coal
on board. This was less than the company expected, and much less than Mr.
Russel would have like to send, but it
was all he could get together, under all
the circumstances detailed in last
week's instalment of his diary. Mining
went on after she sailed, but with a
lessening amount being got out. On
February Mr.Russell notes that the
coal near the air shaft was becoming
very soft and was perfectly worthless,
but it had to be worked in order to extract the other coal. The seam was decreasing in thickness very rapidly, and
was full of faults, making it exceeding dangerous to work. On the last
day of that month he says: "We have
now worked the mine to within thirty
feet of the surface at the air shaft. It
is very soft there: in fact, worthless
and unsafe to work it any higher. In
reality the mine may be looked upon
as exhausted. One hunered and fifty
tons or so might yet be got out. but
then it would not pay the cost of extraction.
To be continued next week.

Interesting  Reminiscences  Gleaned  from  Diaries of Late  Thomas  Russell,
former City Assessor, Victoria.
From The Victoria Daily Times.
One of the things about the Queen
Charlotte Coal Mining company's mine
that Mr. Russell found to be an instance of poor handling of the coal
taken out was the tramways, of which
there were two from the mouth of the
tunnel down to the wharf. The upper
of these was at one point caved to
such an extent that it made running
the car dangerous, but in order to
work the mine it had to be used. Regarding this work Mr. Russell has
some caustic th'ingw to say about the
men who passed it, and especially
about Trounce, who had been superintendent of works, "passing a road that
did not stand nine months before it
was impassable. " He concludes that
Trounce never inspected the work, "as
any man of sense could have seen that
a road built in that way could not."
On the very first day the car was
run down the tramway, after the arrival of Mr. Russell at the mine, it ran
away. One of the men who had gone
up from Victoria with him, Laiken,
was in charge of it, having boasted
that he knew all .about running cars
from a mine. He was thrown off and
his skull fractured, but in spite of lack
of medical attention he was up and
about in a day or two, though he always complained afterwards of swimming in his head. Another man was
very badly injured some weeks later,
a third was very much bruised at another time, and on several occasions
Mr. Russell and the men had the narrowest of escapes. Twice the car
broke through the barriers at the end
and went over the wharf, necessitating
repairs and, on the second occasion
practically rebuilding.
Tobogganing down the incline on the
car seems to have been a great attraction for the Indians before Mr. Russell
arrived on the island. Of their liking
for this and the means he had to take
to stop the practice, he says: "When
I first arrived here I found the car
standing with the wheel off, and upon
inquiring why, Branch told me it was
to prevent the Indians pushing her up
the track and then riding down on her.
They were in the habit of doing this
after the men had gone to bed, and
laughed at him. I ordered the wheel
to be put on and kept on, at the same
time telling the Indians that if I ever
found them moving it from its place
without my permission I would chastise them most severely.
"Things went on  all right  until last
night, when I heard them moving her
very cautiously up the track. I rushed
up on to the bridge and made for them
but they saw me coming and ran away
like a lot of young deer. I gave them
chase and succeeded in capturing two.
They were only boys, so I gave them
a good shaking and made them drag
the car back to its place. I had not
been more than half an hour in the
house when I heard her being moved
again. I went out and called to them
to stop, which* they did. Four men
had possession of her this time, and
stood by the car until I came up. I
collared the first fellow  within reach,
gave him a good shaking and boxed his
ears. When the others saw me let
fly my fist at him, they ran away like
so many cowardly dogs. I made this
fellow push the car back to its place
and '.old him if I found any of them
trying the like again I should take a
stick to them."
The cave in the tramway got so bad
that towards the end of the year Mr.
Russell had to set the men to work
to cut a new roadway Out of the mountainside for a considerable distance, so
that a new track could be laid and a
sharp curve reduced. All these things
meant delay and loss of time in the
mine, and what between the breakages
of the car, the rebuilding of the roadway, the cleaning of coal thrown on
the chutes without being cleaned, and
the time lost by men being injured, the
fine weather passed by and the rains
of the winter season were falling be-
for mining could be carried on in a
satis actory manner.
On  Christmas  day,   1870, a ship arrived at Skidegate which had come for
a cargo of coal from   the  mine.     This
was the Lulu, and the  master was one
Capt. Knowles.     Of this  mariner   and
his dealling  with   the  Indians  during
his stay Mr. Russell speaks  with thorough disgust and contempt.     Knowles
appears to have merited all that is said
against  his  character.     He   was frequently warned by Mr. Russell against
giving  whiskey    to   the  Indians,   and
promised not to do  so, but he seems to
have   been     debauching   the    natives
wholesale, and after the   ship had sailed it came to  Mr.   Russell's  attention
that the captain had  a  large  quantity
of Indians whiskey on  board  and that
he was offering this  for sale  while he
was lying off Skidegate for-a favorable
wind.    He got no purchasers, however.
He would not take  anything but cash,
while the Indians  had  no  money  and
offered skins, which he would not  accept.
The vessel was nearly a month at
the mine, and outside before she got
away for Victoria with 435 tons of coal
on board. This was less than the company expected, and much less than Mr.
Russel would have like to send, but it
was all he could get together, under all
the circumstances detailed in last
week's instalment of his diary. Mining
went on after she sailed, but with a
lessening amount being got out. On
February Mr.Russell notes that the
coal near the air shaft was becoming
very soft and was perfectly worthless,
but it had to be worked in order to extract the other coal. The seam was decreasing in thickness very rapidly, and
was full of faults, making it exceeding dangerous to work. On the last
day of that month he says: "We have
now worked the mine to within thirty
feet of the surface at the air shaft. It
is very soft there: in fact, worthless
and unsafe to work it any higher. In
reality the mine may be looked upon
as exhausted. One hunered and fifty
tons or so might yet be got out. but
then it would not pay the cost of extraction.
To be continued next week.

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 Prince
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.
