A Weekly Newspaper Published in the interests of the Settlers, and to promote the development of the Queen Charlotte Islands.
VOL. 1, No. 7.
QUEEN CHARLOTTE, B.C. MONDAY, OCTOBER 9, 1911.
5 Cents per Copy.
Potentialities Of The
harlotte Islands
Richest Group on the North Pacific Coast of America.
Article No. 1.
Editor Islander, It would not be
stating anything very remarkable if one
should deplore the lack of interest taken
by the people of British Columbia in the
wealth, at their very doors, needing
only exploiting. The writer of this
article has been a resident of the Queen
Charlotte Group for nearly two years
and has been in a position to explore,
by land and sea, almost every nook and
corner. /l have seen the Indians capture three thousand large Spring salmon,
using only trolling lines and spoons, off
the shores of what is now known as
Langara Island. The Indians fished for
four weeks and averaged about ten salmon per day, for which they received
seventy cents each. . The herring, off
the same island, are large and in plenty.
I have seen halibut over six feet in
length and we ghing two hundred pounds,
and the Indians catch them by hundreds
lor their winter food. In the rivers,
which are very small, thesockeye, cohoe,
steelhead, humpback and dog salmon
run and these fish are caught and put
up by the Indians. The dogfish are
caught and splendid oil extracted from
them. Black cod can be caught in large
numbers, and the only people who ap-.
pear interested in the fisheries are the
Indians and "poachers."
During my stay on the islands it has
been my good fortune, to visit/he oil
plant at Tiahn village on the West coast
of Graham Island/ The seven men
located at the plant were drilling through
the best shale and are now working
through limestone. There is every prospect of obtain Ing vast quantities of oil,
and there is but one company at work.
Along the beaches I have examined the
tar and asphaltum, oozing out of the
crevices in the rocky, and went inland
to "stake" claims. True, it is a wild
coast, during the winter months ; but
there are some good harbors towards
the south end of the island, and Virago
Sound is not very far away, overland,
where oil can be piped.
Of the coal, I know very little, not
having the opportunity to visit the
mines. From the Indians and others,
there is no dobut that good coal bodies
exist in the interior of the island. It is
true that there are lignite beds along
the coast, whether they are of any consequence I am not competent to judge.
The boring plants on the Yakoun river
will indicate the value of the holdings
of the various companies there.    I have
seen the coal extracted from the mines
near Queen Charlotte, and it is of a
superior quality.
The timber resources of Graham Island
can only be seen to be appreciated.
Spruce, hemlock and yellow cedar appears to be the best in sight. Why there
is only one mill in operation on Graham
Island the owners of timber limits can
tell. The residents of Massett Inlet
are importing lumber and shingles,
while the shores are lined with timber
that only requires cutting.
Of cleared farming land I saw very
little. The settler must come prepared
to do some good hard work. /The land
is good, but it must be cleared. The
Prince Rupert market is open for the
produce of the islands and Graham
Island should be the garden spot for the
inhabitants of the terminal city. I have
grown strawberries, small fruits and
vegetables, and they thrive. The season
is late ; but the fruit would go to the
market when the California and other
fruits are not in competition. Cattle
roam over the Island all the year round;
but this is no criterion. Cattle should
be fed during the winter in this northern
country, despite the fact that a number
of wild cattle roam over the east coast
of Graham Island.
/The waterways through the islands
will compare with any in the known
world. Imagine a farmer rowing home
for forty miles in a few hours. The
tides run at the rate of six miles an
hour and it is possible to drift for forty
miles along the shores at that rate without exertion of any kind. One may
visit the settlements on one tide and
return home on the other. There are
numerous small rivers cutting into
Graham Island teeming with fish. The
waterfalls, especially on Ain River, will
ultimately be used to generate power
and the other rivers can all be used for
that purpose/
This is no advertisement, Mr. Editor,
I do not state it is a poor man's country;
because, until capital is brought in there
is no work for the laboring man. To
live on the islands and clear land one
must have enough capital to exist on.
It is the coming centre of large industries
and the pity is that it will be taken up
and exploited by those outside of the
country, unless our people get over the
prevailing "sleeping sickness."

Islands Will Be
Stocked With Deer
Expected to  Become  One  of   Finest
Game Preserves in Province.
With a view to further enriching the
splendid game resources of British
Columbia and to widening the field for
sport for the large numbers of well
known hunters of big game coming to
this province every year^/the provincial
government has undertaken the stocking of the islands with deer. Already
several fine specimens have been turned
loose and more will be captured and conveyed here.
Mr. Bryan Williams, provincial game
warden, in a interview recently, said :
"The climate on Queen Charlotte
Islands is eminently suitable for' deer
and we see no reason why these islands
should not be made one of the finest
game preserves in the province. We
hope by turning out about eighteen or
twenty head on the islands to provide
a sufficient number to- allow of-hunters
spending a very profitable season there.
A few years ago several head of cariboo
were found on Queen Charlotte Islands,
altogether different from the species to
be found in other parts of British
Columbia and although several expeditions have been sent there, no trace
of any cariboo has been obtained since
then. The specimens secured on the
islands   have   been   presented   to   the
museum.

Totem  Pole   For  'Frisco College.
San Francisco, Sept. 25. -A giant
totem pole carved by the Haida Indians
of British Columbia arrived yesterday
on the steamer Montara and will be set
up on a great hill overlooking Golden
Gate Park in the campus of the Affiliated Colleges of the University of California. The pole is the gift of Mrs.
Phoebe Hearst.
The Haida Indians live in the Queen
Charlotte Islands and are considered the
most expert wood carvers of all North
Americans Indians.

The Marine and Fisheries Department
have notified the Grand Trunk Pacific
Railway Company that it is contrary to
the regulations to carry gasoline on the
vessels plying between the islands and
the mainland. A petition is in circulation requesting that this regulation be
not enforced. There are a large number of gasoline boats on the inlets, and
it is a hardship to prevent them from
carrying on the trade that is springing
up between the settlements and the
various camps.
Mr. and Mrs. A. M. Miller and daughter returned yesterday from a short
holiday in Washington.

Is World  Famed. QUEEN CHARLOTTE.
A petition is being largely signed by
residents of Queen Charlotte and Skidegate requesting the Provincial government to appoint a Justice of the Peace
for this district. We all know the
reason why there has never been an
appointment made so far. The matter
has been allowed to hang fire too long
and the time has arrived when this
important matter should receive the attention of the authorities. Many instances are known of how residents
have suffered in business through no
magistrate being resident here. During
the recent election a great many drawbacks had to be contended with and only
for the presence of J. P.'s from Prince
Rupert and Massett, to use an expression we would have been up against it. The
name of Mr. T. R. Davey, we believe, is
being recommended for the appointment, and we think that no better
name could be put forward, as he is
competent in every way.
The opening up of the coal and oil
properties on Graham Island marks
another section of the rich province
which will bring before the world the
potentialities that have been awaiting
the construction of a railway. Two
companies are at work on the Yakoun
river, building roads and working diamond drills. At Tiahn point a drill is
Lor.ng for oil at the rate of thirty feet
a day and is down 500 feet. They
have passed through the surface shale
and aie now in the limestone capping.
Oil is met with and every indication
evident of the existence of vast oil properties over the territory extending
from Frederick Island to Otard Bay.
The whole of the west coast of Graham
Island has been staked, one indivdual
recording no less than 180 claims.
-o
Hospital Society Reorganized.
Mr. J. E. Corlett, managing director
of the Moresby Island Lumber Co., who
spent the past week at Queen Charlotte
on business in connection with his company, left yesterday for the south.
In a short interview, Mr. Corlett said
he was well satisfied with the work done
this season. Owing to present conditions it was impossible to get ships to
come here and load lumber, as Comox
was the only port in the north that ships
could clear from with insurance. As
soon as Prince Rupert was made a
clearance port for ships, which would
be in the near future, the lumbering
industry on the islands would be no small
affair. His company were prepared to
run their mill night and day as they had
a market in Australia for all the spruce
lumber they could cut. Mr. Corlett
stated that a consignment of ten car
loads of spruce for Boston would be sent
east and another of 200,000 feet of
clear spruce for Victoria was ready for
shipment.

A meeting was held last Wednesday
night in the hospital for the purpose of
reorganizing the Hospital Society. Mr.
Barge, who presided, said that it was
about time they were doing something
in regard to putting the Society on a
more solid basis. He suggested that
the secretary write for particulars re
incorporation and report. It was agreed
to make the membership fee $2.00
per annum. The following officers were
appointed: President, W. J. Smith; vice-
president, D. Cochrane; auditor, J. L.
Barge; secy.-treas., J. M. Campbell;
trustees, Messrs. E. M. Sandilands, G.
D. Beattie and T. R. Davey. Dr. Win
ter, who has had large practice in the
coal district of south Wales and lately
of the Columbia Hospital, Van Anda, is
in charge of the hospital.

grown by two local men. W. Sandison
of Lena Island had some excellent carrots, parsnips and potatoes on exhibit.
The potatoes were very large and nine
of them weighed over 10 lbs. J. L.
Barge had also a fine exhibit of cabbage,
cauliflower, parsnips, carrots, turnips
and potatoes, all of fine variety and

Developing The South-Easter Mine.
A force of eight men, under the superintendence of T. R. Davey of this city,
are at work on the South-Easter mine
which is situated east of the Skidegate
Indian reserve. We understand that a
cook house and dining room, 26 x 16,
and other necessary buildings have been
erected. Surface work, such as tracing
the various veins through the property,
and underground development of the
mine is being carried out and we understand everyone is pleased with the outlook. The property is owned by A. J.
Gordon, et al, and was bonded recently
by J. D. Sword, M.E., of Seattle, and
associates.

Edmor.tor., Oct. 5.—Three carloads of Laplar.d reir.deer frcm
Northern Newfoundland was the
remr.rkr.ble freight which arrived
in Edmor.tor. today on the C. N. R.
from the east. There were forty-
three reir.deer in three cars and
the fourth car was stocked with
reir.deer food, moss and frass.
The reir.deer are che representatives of the species with which
the department of the interior
has planned co stock the district
of Mackenzie. The animals are
to be used for carrying purposes
in the long reaches of the north
in place of dogs.
The consignment of reir.deer
left  Newfoundland on September
8.
The reindeer will be taken by
rail as far as Stony Creek, sixty
miles r.orih of Edmonton, and
from that point they will be taken
overland to Athabasca Larding.
Some that have been well broken
will be led and others will be
conveyed in wagons. At Athabasca Landing the animals will
be placed in scows and floated
down the Athabasca river to Fort
Smith, which is their destination.
They will have travelled fully
five thousand miles by the time
their journey is at an end.
Had Married Thirteen Times.
Portland, Ore., Oct. 5.—Wooed
and won by thirteen braves, Nellie
Lane, a good looking Siletz squaw,
is now the bride of Moses, her
fourteenth who has been married
four times himself. The woman
made this admission cheerfully
before the grand jury when she
appeared as a witness in an investigation into the sale of liquor
on the Siletz reservation.
It is believed she has the Pacific
Coast matrimonial record cinched
and the only one who even approached her mark, is dead. He
was Peter West, a Pendleton attorney, who died after he had wed
his thirteenth.
"If the election returns are ever
analysed it would be interesting to
find out what the British born
did with his vote. By the British-
born is meant the newcomer from
England to Canada—in Australia
they call him a new chum—as
compared with the people who
came here long ago and built up
the country. Of course, we are
all British-born who are born
within the Empire and all equally
proud of it. But a special appeal
was made, for party purposes, to
the recently arrived British-born
as a person who might be influenced, because he was ignorant
of Canadian politics, to help deliver Canada from the danger
of free food exchange with the
United States.
"Of course, the best service
anyone can do the British-born
is to assimilate him to the people
and conditions of the new land
that he is making his home; but
in this case he was picked out
as a special rescuer, and told
that his place in the general election was to save a Liberal Government, born and bred on the spot,
from making an unpatriotic and
disloyal fool of itself.
"As a rule, the British-born
we get over here belongs to the
working classes, and it is true that
here, as in the Old Country, most
of the workingman's blessings have
flowed from a Liberal Government.
It is also true that Premier Asquith
said reciprocityy was good for
business and for the Empire, and
Lloyd-George, the friend of the
poor, said it was crystallized common sense, and British Ambassador Bryce helped to make the
agreement, but all these things
may not have counted against
the representations on the other
side.
"What did the British-born do?
Did he cast a ballot for common
sense and cheaper living? Did he
rally to the side his bread is
buttered on? Or did he do something else?"—Canadian Colliers.

A wireless station is urgently needed
in the vicinity of Massett Inlet. The
nearest means of communication with
the outer world is Dead Tree Point, over
eighty miles from Massett, and but one
steamer arrives at the north end of the
island during each fortnight through the
winter months. The hundreds of residents are completely cut off from the
outer world andkeenly feel the want of
better service/
Twelve men are at work at Langara
Island constructing the lighthouse that
will stand on the extreme limit of the
last land between America and Asia,
the structure is being erected on one of
the most dangerous sections of the coast
of British Columbia, and will aid in the
navigation of vessels between Alaska
and Prince Rupert.
/Five deer have been turned loose on
the west side of Massett Inlet/ The
animals will not be disturbed by wolves
or other wild denizens of the forest, the
islands being clear of every other species
with the exception of black bears. Some
years ago a number of Indians secured
three Caribou on the island, and recent
land stakers saw the track of one
Caribou near Frederick Island.
The result of the vote at Naden Harbor, where the whaling station is located,
showed that but one voter in that district—the returning officer. With a
large number of men employed and
vessels engaged in capturing whales, it
was the subject of comment that all
employees neglected to register or were
recent arrivals. The large majority of
workmen are Japs and Chinese.

any time. Unfortunately, the residents
of Massett are divided over the location
of a new wharf, for which the Dominion
government has passed a liberal appropriation. Considering that the large
volume of business is carried on at New
Massett, several persons who were
favorable to the construction of the

the following officers were elected : Dr.

president; Chief Vickers, sec.-treas.;
Messrs. Patmore, Deasy, Brown, directors. The company own a large number of claims on the west coast of

the future oilfields will develop into one
of the largest industries in the neighborhood of the new city of Prince Rupert.
