The Boss Scores.       Many Settlers Arrive.
Mr. Editor,—Any person of strong
individuality who acts as his nature
dictates is subject to criticism an
even malicious slander. Our greatest
Canadian statesman was not exempt,
but he calmly brushed it aside with the
remark: "You'll always find the most
sticks under the best apple tree."
Occupying a very humble station in
life I can't afford to be so complacent,
and the verbal lambasting administered
through these columns forces me in defending myself to use weapons borrowed
for the occasion, with which my hand is
not familiar. Josh Billings once said:
" Mi private opinyun iz—that originality
in writing waz plade out long ago and
the very best enny man kan do iz to
steal with good judgement."

imagination, and by the magic  art of

There is not the least doubt about it
hat a big rush is on to Graham Island.
The last trip of the steamer Prince
John to Massett witnessed the arrival
of another large crowd of people who
intend locating on land on Massett Inlet. Mr. Sewall, who has done good
work for the past three years towards
inducing settlers to take up land here,
brought a party of twenty-five from
Vancouver. / The John also brought
many tons of freight, in fact the wharf
was so congested that people could
hardly move around without bumping
into something or somebody. It is time
the wharf was enlarged. Among those
who arrived were: J. H. McCarthy,
H. P. Wilson, Mr. Hicks; T. Jener, B.
E. Stevenson, J. Mason, J. H. Burnett,
E. Smith, C. Hess, G. C. Wilson, J.

Massett, has opened an information
bureau in connection with the Queen

purpose of furnishing reliable information to intending settlers and investors.

any advice required owing to his long
residence on Graham Island. ; A publicity campaign will be started in the
course of a week or so and as this means

The remarks of Bishop Du Vernet
during his recent visit, anent the harmony that should prevail in our small
communities, were very seemly and to
the point. In the first place there
should be nothing but a friendly rivalry
between the towns now in the course of
making on Graham Island. Whatever
is for the good of one town is, most
assuredly, for the good of all. Every
new settler, no matter where he loeates,
is a benefit to the whole community,
which is made up of individuals. It is
well to advertise the places of residence
and make every honest endeavor to
obtain population ; but no man should
decry his neighbor* in any way to advance his own interests. In all small
places the news of the misfortune of
our neighbors travels fast enough without any additions, to bring heartburnings. There are many things said that
would be better kept away from the
public, be they true or untrue. This
world is large enough for all to live in
it in harmony, and it behooves none of
us to become uncharitable and "peddle"
the misfortunes of those struggling
against fate to obtain a livelihood. It
is the misfortune of all small communities that they know a great deal of the
private affairs of neighbors, and forget
the adage about "beams in their own
eye." Charity is the greatest attribute
of those professing Christianity, and a
great deal more of that virtue can be
used in the world of today. If we overlook some of the shortcomings of our
neighbors, it is possible that some day
they will overlook ours. None of us are
more than human and the milk of human
kindness is not so plentiful that we cannot dispense with a proportion of it ourselves. We must remember that mere
trifles have disrupted many kingdoms,
and a careless word dropped in a spirit
of antagonism brings a crop of weeds
that cover all the good qualities of the
speaker of it. There is a time to help
those who require assistance; but there
should be no notice taken of the
"scandal-monger" and the "gossip,"
who drags down those who may be
better than the one who is decrying
everything and everybody who does not
do exactly as the caterer of "news"
requires. Let all aid now that our
towns are in the making to keep down
that spirit which is the source of trouble
and heartburnings in every small community.

"Lay me by the sea-side,
Close beside my Haida braves;
Where beacon  lights great   ships   do
guide,
O'er harbor bar and ruthless waves.
There I laid them down to rest,
Among them would I lie;
Hush, dear one, do not weep,
T'is God's will that man must die.':
" Shure I preached and prayed among
V      them,
In the happy days of yore ;
Baptized and praised their little ones,
Married those who fealty swore.
Sat with them in the festive hall,
Each Sunday all I blessed;
And when God sent the parting call,
I placed them there to rest."
"Help me read the psalms of praise,
God's mighty will be done ;
Hear the voice, O Lord, I raise.
E'er life's hard race is run.
Salanna, Lord, the life line throw,
Bless Thy Holy name ;
Save the souls left here below,
With loves their hearts inflame.
"Bless them, Lord, my Haida braves,
My children, one and all;
Those resting in the sand-blown graves,
Those who wait thy deathless call.
T'is Thy will, I go before,
To thy eternal rest;
I've done my duty, Lord, what more?
A home among the blest."

Many are the compliments received
by the Hon. William R. Ross, minister
of lands, for the Timber Royalty Bill in
which the principle of profit-sharing in
the timber resource was a feature.
Prominent Canadians and residents of
the United States, including members
of the Cabinet of that country, have
sent letters warmly commending the
new Act.
Hon. Clifford Sifton, President of the
Canadian Commission of Conservation,
writes congratulating the Minister of
Lands and says: "I have repeatedly
said during the last year that British
Columbia was the most advanced Province in the Dominion so far as attention to the question of forest protection
was concerned, and I may now say the
same thing in regard to the question of
disposition of timber belonging to the
Province."
Henry S. Graves, chief forester of
the United States, writes : " I have
just learned of the reeent action by
British Columbia with reference to the
royalty on public timber. I want to
express my pleasure at the great progress which has been made in your
country and to extend my heartiest congratulations. The recognition of the
right of the public to share in the in-
creasing value of public timber is, in
my opinion, a vital one."
The Secretary of the Department of
Agriculture of the United States writes:
"The plan of readjusting stumpage
values of timber at stated intervals in
sales from public lands whereby the
public will derive a fair share of the ^-
increase in lumber values is one with
which I am in hearty accord. You Will
doubtless be interested in tearing that
a provision of this character is included
by this department in all contracts for
sales of timber from national forest
lands where the period of contract is in
excess of five years, and that it has
been accepted as equitable by timber
operators. I feel that you are to be
heartily congratulated on this pro-
gressive legislation."
