Prince Rupert Fair Climatic Conditions Equally As Good Government Geologists
Sept. 24, 25 and 26 Here As In Warwickshire, England     Should Visit Oil Fields
Queen Charlottes Will Be In Line With
Exhibits of Minerals, Timber, Fish
and Agricultural Products.
Indian Agent Deasy Will Loan Valuable
Collection of Indian Curios.
The Prince Rupert exhibition, to be
held September 24th to 26th, has set a
new pace in the liberality of its treatment in cash prizes for the mineral department of the fair. The management
purpose giving double the amount
offered by the big Vancouver exhibition,
beside a wider variety of commercial
minerals, goal building stones, marble,
clays, ete. The district prize amounts
to $50 and a diploma. Five dollar
prizes are offered for the best displays
of gold, silver, silver-lead, copper-gold
and zinc ores. To this the Portland
Canal Miner add a special $10 prize for
the largest exhibit of pre from any individual prospect or mine shown by
bona fide owners. The prospectors have
also been generously treated in three
cash prizes of $15, $10 and $5 for the
best collection of district specimens.
R. W. Cameron of Prince Rupert, to
encourage an exhibit of the black diamond, has offered the association a $25
silver cup for the finest exhibit of coal.
Diplomas and cash prizes of $5 for first
and $3 for second will be awarded for
the best displays of marble, brick, clay,
lime, gravel, building stone and cement.
Diplomas are also to be given for the
best collections of concentrates
smelter produce.
Word has been received by the
management that district exhibits
be contributed by Atlin, Stewart,
elas, Hazelton and Queen Charlotte
Islands, and keen rivalry already exists
between the several sections as to who
will land the district prize. Arrangements have been made for the lease of
a building during the fair to be used exclusively for the mineral displays, and
this feature will appeal to thousands
of visitors, both at home and on the
outside.
Two more magnificent trophies have
been added to the long list of sups,
medals and prizes that will be distributed to winners at the exhibition.
One is a sterling silver challenge cup,
valued at $60, presented by M. M.
Stephens for the grand district display
of fruits, vegetables and other agricultural products. The cup is a handsome
ornament, standing 14 inches high, with
staghorn handles. It is to become the
property of the district winning the first
prize  two years in succession or any

The following tables give a comparison between climatic conditions in Warwickshire, England, and Queenstown, Graham Island, for the week ending July
16th, 1913. It will be noted that the temperature is more even here than in
Warwickshire, and that there is not so much of a drop between the maximum
and minimum. Although the rainfall may be a little more here, yet we have
just as much sunshine. Warwickshire is a splendid farming county, and if
climate has anything to do with that, so ought Graham Island to be.

Prince Rupert Exhibition
MRS. MILLARD, KUNDIS BAY, IN HER CABBAGE PATCH.
London Director Here On Visit.
Conservative Organizer Coming.
at
Captain Harmon, of London, England,
a director of the Graham  Island Coal
and Timber Syndicate, who arrived here
on the last steamer, went up the river
on Saturday morning in company with
Mr. K C. Wright, local field superintendent for the syndicate, to look over
the operations now being proceeded with
on the property.
The   Conservative    organizer,    Dr."
Scharschmidt,   is  presently making a
tour of the Islands.   He will come over
the trail from   Queen Charlotte  and
reach Queenstown in a few days.   From
here he will take in all points on the inlet, thence Massett and Tow Hill.' Dr.
Scharschmidt, during his tour of the
island, is accompanied by O. P. Gill.
The great consumption of oil,' both on
the land and at sea, means millions upon millions of dollars to Canada and the
United States.     One large corporation
controls the oil supply of both countries,
and the Standard Oil Company is one
of the richest organizations in the world.
They control so much property, rich in
oil,   that  they  can  dictate  the price,
still they import from Russia and other
parts of the world, to keep up with the
demand.    Seeking for oil is not a poor
man's proposition;   when  it  is  known
that any territory shows indications of
oil, the expense connected with securing
the ground and introducing drilling material, runs into the thousands of dollars.
If the location is  in  some  out-of-the-
way place, there are so few, who understand conditions, that an oil field  might
lay dormant, for  many years,   without
any attempt to open it up.   There  has
been a great deal   written about  the
territory  on our  island,   which  shows
every indication of oil.   Professor Dawson, one of the greatest geologists that
the world ever knew,   went over  the
West Coast of   Graham  Island,   many
years ago, and his   report  states  that
there is an oil district, from Otard Bay
to Frederick island.    Other men,   who
claim to knew the indications and geological  formation of the   country, express the opinion that there is  oil   beneath the surface of many miles of this
country; but no great effort  has  ever
been made to prove the existence of the
fluid, in quantity.    Over a year ago,   a
company sent in   a drilling  outfit.    A
few men went to the West  Coast   and
put down a hole, a few hundred  feet.
Through  some  misunderstanding,   the
work did not progress satisfactory and
it was decided  to  start another hole,
alongside  the  one  on   which  the employees    of   the    company   had  been
working for a year.    In the workings,
at the old location,   the  workmen met
with every indication of an oilfield further down; but it   will be   some  time,
with the difficulties they must encounter
before   they  will   reach  the  deposit,
which is expected to be at the depth of
Jjjro thousand feet.    We have read the
opinions of noted men, who state  that
there is oil  in different parts of this
island, and have  seen   the   shale,   tar
and other indications of   the  existence
of oil.   The wonder is that so little  interest is taken by those who have capital, and who will invest thousands of
dollars, in developing mining property,
while there is the prospect of obtaining
so great a return, on capital invested
in oilfields. The government, also, obtains a large revenue from licenses
for the exploitation of  coal and oil.

Charlie Ives Plunged into Swift Waters
of Owen River and Rescued
Cyril Harrison.
A large fishing party from Massett
arrived on Capt. McCrae's launch West-
over on Monday after spending a few
days at the Owen river. Among the
party were Mrs. C. M. Wilson, Mrs.
and Miss Ives, Mrs. Wallace, Miss Orr,
Miss Rudd, and Messrs. A. Clayburg,
A. E. Jessup, Bert Wearmouth, R.
Entwisle, Cyril Harrison, Charlie and

The time is now ripe for the various
distriets at the north end of the island
to get together and form some kind of
an organization that will result in doing
this part of the Island good. We want
industries to locate, we want settlers
to take up land, and we want to get
capitalists interested in our resources.
An organization such as a Board of
Trade, or a Progress Club could quite
well take up a whole lot of matters that
a political association could not. Other
local matters, such as transportation
facilities, mail service, roads and trails,
information bureau, etc., could be taken
up and discussed in an unpartisan spirit
that would be of benefit to the various
distriets. Representatives should be
appointed from each settlement and a
meeting convened to formulate such
an organization, as suggested, which,
we are confident, would result in a vast
amount of good being accomplished.

Just before leaving the river an alarming accident occurred, but happily without any serious results. Cyril Harrison
in some manner fell overboard and was
rapidly being carried away by the strong
current and would have been lost had
it not been for the promptness of Charlie
Ives in plunging to his rescue.

The Massett "Leader's" Woden correspondent is some humorist. He sure
got off a good story about the editor of
this sheet, anent our recent visit to the
"Holy City." That was rich, though,
about us packing away a sack of oatmeal. Now, just as if the editor would
do a thing like that when he has had a
"mush" quarry staked on the island for
years. Like carrying coals to Newcastle. Perhaps they have a quarry at
Woden too. If the "Leader's" correspondent blows in to this office we will
dish him up the finest plate of mush he
ever tasted. The " Mac" before Donald
would have been correct. But we enjoyed the joke all the same.

greatly impressed with the country as
one of the best for farming and says
that with the completion of the wagon

The firm are to be congratulated on
turning out such splendid work.
Henry Holland, the well known Woden
farmer, paid his first visit to Queenstown this week. He was so pleased
with the place and its future that he
invested in townsite property. Mr.

east end of the townsite.

its large Dunroe family of ten children.
That's nothing.   A pre-emptor is selecting land at the Woden who arrived last
week with his wife and five children and
has seven more healthy youngsters who
will come in just as soon as the daddy
locates.     The  Sewall  family is Irish.
The Woden River locator, whose name
we don't attempt to spell, is  German.

The Queen Charlottes will be well to

timber, fish and agricultural products,
which, we are sure, will create a good
good impression with visitors at the

Indian Agent Thomas Deasy will loan
his valuable collection of Indian curios
and has also made a suggestion to the

Indians appearing in their national dress.

Geologists Should Visit Oilfields.
Continued from Page 1
There are thousands of   claim  holders,
paying for licences,  on these   islands.
They all have faith in the proposition;
but the majority are  poor men.   The
company now working   has expended
over twenty thousand dollars.   Would
it not be in the interest of the whole
country to pay a   bonus  to   men  who
will place oil drills and spend a certain
sum  in   development work?   It is to
help in the advancement of   a country
that we  are taxed.   There is  no industry to compare with furnishing fuel,
in the shape of oil, to the many who now
ace compelled to use it, for commercial
and domestic purposes.   We feel certain
if one of the geologists, now employed
by   the goverement,   would visit the
West Coast,   and   examine the fields,
that he would report  favorably on  it.
There are, to-day, men who have been
employed in some of the   greatest oil
fields in the world, who have visited the
place where a drill  is now placed,  and
their expert opinion is that there is   no
doubt of the existence of oil,   in  large
quantities.   They are not in a position
to invest in  the necessary machinery;
but are willing to prove their assertions,
by giving their  time  to  the work of
of drilling, if assured of enough capital
to pay  for the  plant.   We have met
several of these men, and they are enthusiastic over the matter, so much so
that they have invested in claims, which
they are willing to donate to any company ready to invest capital,  on terms
that should ensure a great  profit.   We
are permitting the introduction of fuel
oil, free of duty, for   the  reason that
our railroad and steamship companies
must have it, thereby losing a large sum
to the revenue of the whole Dominion,
and preventing the coal companies from
employing men.   With' oil fields in our
own territory, that it only needs opening
up, there is  wealth and these islands
would be benefitted immeasurably.   It
is the duty of every resident to make
an attempt to have the government experts visit the   localities, ' where oil  id
known to exist, and have some'effort
made to bring it to the surface.   It will
be the greatest advertisement for the
island that could be given;   Many of our
residents are interested in oil  claims.
They should move, and move, rapidly Xo
have a geologist sent to the oil fields
and give out to the investing portion of
the population an opportunity to know,
officially, that we have what is now
needed to supply tbe great demand .for
fuel
