Successful Dominion
Day Celebration
•
Dominion Day has come and gone
and left us with pleasant recollections
of a very happy and successful day
to last until July lst; 1915. Owing to
the poor season and general quiet times
there were not as many people on hand
as last year, but those who were fortunate enough to be present thoroughly
enjoyed themselves. For some as yet
unexplained reason the Woden, Graham
Centre launches did not arrive as promised, so some who expected to come
from these places were disappointed,
though many carne by rowboat and
other launches. The weather was fine
and the Recreation Park looked very
gay with flags and bunting. There
were about 150 on the field either taking part in or watching the Sports.
The races were/ all run off without a
hitch and there were many k^en contests and close decisions. Owing to
the large number of entries it was impossible to finish the tennis tournament and this is postponed to a later
date. The football was a well fought
game though the outsiders beat Massett by 3 goals to 0 in spite of the skill
and energy displayed by the Massett
goalkeeper, Mr. C. Harrison. (He
blames the backs in no uncertain terms.)
The catering and refreshment arrangements were very ably carried out. It
was a treat to get an ice once more,
and Mrs. Martin's ice-cream stall was
well patronized, as was the lemonade
and fruit stand run by Mrs. Millard.
The supper tent was a busy scene from
five until seven. Mrs. 0. W. M.Hughes
had been busy selling tickets all day and
about 80 hungry people were taken care
of by a bevy of charming young ladies,
whilst the kitchen end of the meal was
arranged by others, most prominent
among whom were Mrs. Davies and Mrs.
Carter, who worked like trojans. After
supper a large crowd gathered on the
wharf to see the startof the motor boat
race. There were a number of entries
but owing to the unfortunate fact of
one of the buoys having gone adrift
during the day it had to be declared no
race, though this did not interfere with
the enjoyment of the participants.
There were only two starters in the outboard motor race, Dr. Graves and Jack
Van. They did not see the buoys at all
but plugged away till they struck somewhere in the vicinity of Nadu, when
they decided to turn. It is rumoured that
they finished during the night, though
the Judge was not there to witness it.
Altogether it was a most successful day,
due in no small measure to the energy
displayed by the convener of the sports
committee, C. W. W. Gauld, who was
laden down with dollars which he distributed to breathless children.
The dance which followed was a great
success, being attended by over 100
ladies and gentlemen.    Refreshments

Local News Items
Mr. Allan Stewart, manager of the
B. C. Oil Fields, arrived in Massett
on the Prince John last Tuesday. He
brought with him additional equipment
and machinery, and operations will be
resumed immediately on a larger scale
than ever before.
The B. C. Oil Fields Company are
the pioneers in the Queen Charlotte
Islands and they have spent a lot of
money here, and deserve to win. Already they have one well at Otard Bay
down 425 feet and another 850 feet.
Drilling on this latter will be resumed
immediately and before many weeks
the oil sand should be reached.
Several local parties are interested
in the B. C. Oil Fields and they have
mtach faith in their investment.
If this company strikes something,
as it is confidently expected they will,
it will be a big boost for the islands
and the north.
Mr. Stewart and several of his crew
left for the west coast on Tuesday.
-o
School Meeting Next Saturday.
The annual school meeting of the
Massett Rural School District will be
held next Saturday at 10 a. m. in the
School Hsuse. Besides the ordinary
school buisness, a trustee and auditor
have to be elected in place of Mr. A.
Orr and Mr. W. J. Hughes, whose term
of office has expired.
Messrs. Milnor Roberts, M. E., and
Vileroy Gleason, M. E., Engineers
representing the Metropolitan Trust
Co. of New York, arrived on the last
trip of the Prince John. They left for
the Yakoun River holdings of the Company, where they will expert the de-
velopement work down under the
supervision of Messrs. MacDonald and
Barton, and also prospect and report
upon the ground so far untouched.
This Company have very large interests
in the Coal Fields of the Island and
though they have made no official
announcements, yet their movements
of late would indicate that they are
obtaining very satisfactory results.
Mr. Herbert Parsons of New York,
General Counsel for the Corporation,
is expected to arrive together with his
wife and family some time during the
next two weeks. The Prince John will
make a special trip so that he may
make close connections. With promising developements up the Yakoun
and the West Coast Oilfields beginning
to receive the attention they merit, together with the thousands of acres of
agricultural land being taken up every
month it would seem that Graham Island is beginning to come into its own.
J. K. Anderson, of Tow Hill, will open
a branch store in the Smythe Block
shortly.
Twenty boat crews of Massett Indians
left for the Oceanic Cannery on the last
steamer.
Messrs. •Frizel, Mason and Curtis
came in from their pre-emption on the
North Beach for the Dominion Day
celebration.
Admiral Kingswell will visit the Queen
Charlotte Islands during his tour of the
North. He is now engaged in inspecting the fishery protection fleet.
Fishing off Langara Island has not
been successful up to the present on
account of the high winds. The fish
are now commencing to run in large
numbers.
The wrecked hull of Henry Eden-
shaws's burned launch, the Josephine,
was towed from Delkatlah to the
reserve last week. The vessel will not
be rebuilt.

New Oil Co.
There was organized in Prince Rupert
last week a new Graham Island Oil Co.,
capitalized at $150,000 and called the
Langara Oil Co. The company has
several good claims on the west coast.
The directors are P W. Andersen
(managing derector) J. A. Kirkpatrict,
M. Albert, H. E. Tremayne, J. D.
McLeod and W. C. Macdonald.
Prince Rupert Exhibition Prize List.
This year's Prince Rupert Exhibition
Prize List has just made its appearance.
It is a neat little book in purple and
gold, having on the front page a cut of
the splendid building which the Directors intend to erect. The front half as
shown in the picture will be built this
year and remainder with the massive
dome added later.
were served during the night by a committee of ladies. Mr. A. Orr was floor-
manager, and the music was supplied
by Messrs. Tingley and Smith. Mr.
W. Graef, convener of the dance committee, was there "with bells " and left
no stone unturned for the comfort of
the guests.
Sports results given on another gage.
Closed For Summer Holidays.
The Massett school closed for the summer holidays last Friday. Roll of honor
certificates were gained by Clarence
Martin for proficiency; Dorse Prosser,
for punctuality and regularity; and for
deportment, merited equally by Aileen
Martin, Viola Davies and Francess
Hughes, which was drawn by Viola
Davies.
 o	
Ernie and Bert Wearmouth were in
town for the Dominion Day Celebration.
Mr. A. Goulet left on Tuesday for
Prince Rupert and the south on business
in connection with a number of oil leases
he holds on the West Coast.
H. S. Irwin, chief forester for the
Skeena District, arrived at noon today
on the Leila R from Prince Rupert.
Mr. Irwin will spend the next ten days
or so around the Inlet on business in
connection with his department. Miss
Irwin and Miss Sullivan accompanied
him.
If all the road work on the Island will
compare with what has been done " on
the Drizzle Lake road this season by
foreman Fred McGregor and his crew,
there won't be any kicking. Everybody
who has seen the work speaks well of
it. All the men who were employed on
this road put in two free days' work,
showing a geod example to other
districts.
All of the halibut schooners and steam
craft that formerly fished on the west
coast of Vancouver Island are now on
Hecate Straits, having found that the
fishing banks of the South have been
fished out.
The launch Polaris is acting as mail
tender between Massett and Naden
Harbor in place of the Josephine. Capt.
H. Edenshaw is arranging to purchase
or build another launch.
The Prince Rupert Board of Trade is
petitioning for a mail subsidy amounting to $30,000 for the Queen Charlotte
Islands service. The present subsidy
amounts to $10,000 and the G. T. P.
Company considers this sum insufficient.
Rev. Dr. J. C. Spencer, of Skidegate,
has been transferred to Port Simpson,
succeeding Rev. J. H. Raley. J. H.
Young has been named as teacher of
the Indian day school at Skidegate, in
place of A. C. Brown, and R. H. Cairns,
formerly of Chilliwhack, has been appointed Inspector of Indian schools for
the Province.
It is doubtful whether the Indian
Brass Bands of Massett and Skidegate
will take part in the contest at the
Prince Rupert Fair. The fishing season
interferes with the practices of the
bandsmen, who obtain their living by
trolling for salmon of the island. -Both
bands will continue practicing next
Winter and will take part in competitions during 1915. - V."

Massett, B.C., Saturday, July 4,1914
Dominion Day.
On the 22nd day of July, 1793, Sir
Alexander Mackenzie reached the Pacific
Ocean, travelling across the continent,
and threw out the flag of Great Britain
over this vast territory. The Union
Act of the Provinces of Upper and
Lower Canada came into force in 1841,
when Canada was populated by a million
and a half of people. The passing of
the British North America Act, which
was effective on the first day of July,
1867, was celebrated in the four Provinces, Ontario, Quebec, Nova Scotia
and New Brunswick, and has since that
time been observed as the national birthday of Canada. The British Government was asked to hand over Rupert's
Land and the Nothwest, which was surrendered by the Hudson's Bay Company
for a consideration of £300,000, land,,
grants and trading privileges. Manitoba entered the Dominion in 1870, and
the Colony of British Columbia became
a part of the Dominion on the first day
of July, 1871, followed by Prince Edward Island in 1873. In 1850 there were
about fifty miles of railway in the whole
of Canada, while we now have over
twenty thousand miles and over one
thousand miles of electric railways. Upon the Atlantic and Pacific, Canadian
steamship lines connect the commerce
of Canada with the outside world. Industrial growth has been marvellous.
The field crops yield a value of over
$600,000,000, and the mineral wealth
far exceeds $100,000,000.
Last Wednesday we celebrated the
forty-third anniversary of the admission
of British Columbia into the Confederation of Provinces. There is not on our
islands one white person who lived here
when the then Colony became an integral portion of the Dominion ; today the
population is about three thousand.
Like other places, Dominion Day was
loyally celebrated at Massett, a report
of which is given elsewhere.

There are people who   decry   everything that does  not   meet   with   their
approval, and they find faults with anything under heaven; some would, most
likely, find fault with that kingdom if
they had the opportunity. The group of
islands, known as the Queen Charlottes,
cannot     be    suitable    for   everyone,
especially those  who  visit our  shores
without means or the  way   of making
a living, excepting by hard manual labor.
There are others who have never  seen
the islands, and who   judge   from  the
reports of those who return to the cities
and find nothing to speak well  of, here
or elsewhere.     It   must   be   admitted
that we are  under   difficulties   in   the
way of roads,   bridges and trails;   but
other parts of the Province are  in  the
same condition.     Every year   we   are
improving,   and   the   time   will   come
when the greatest pessimist   will   acknowledge that there is no better place
to live than on one of   the   islands   of
the furthest West.     It  must   be   remembered   that    all   countries    have
drawbacks to contend with.     The   extremes of cold and heat on the praries
and in the Estern Provinces is but one
of the difficulties of   life,   even   where
they have every convenience in the way
of travel.     Cyclones, blizzards,   overflowing rivers,   summer frosts,   grasshopper plagues, forest fires, and   other
drawbacks are reported   every day   in
the newspapers; yet we are   free from
anything of the kind.    The only difficulty
we have to face is making   a   start   in
the way of clearing land.     Every   pre-
emptor is entitled to one   hundred and
sixty acres and all he  is   asked   to do
cannot be    called   oppressive.    During
the time the preemptor   is   making   a
home he is not taxed and if   five   acres
cannot  be   cleared   and   cultivated  in
three years there is   little  doubt   that
the government will consider   the  conditions   under  which   preemptors   are
placed.   We are of the opinion that the
preemptor should be   assisted   by   the

Graham Centre P.O., B.C.,
regarding the best proposition on
Graham Island.
Mr. Christie, one of the   largest   investors  in   Graham   Island   property,
who spent a week looking over his property, and   who   left   for   the   South
recently, intends to   open   up   a   new
townsite on the  banks   of   the Hiellen
river.   The site  is   an   ideal  one   for
many reasons, being in the neighborhood
of some of the best timber on the island,
close to the observatory on  Tow  Hill,
and on the banks of a beautiful stream,
at the mouth of which it is proposed to
place   a   break-water,   in   order   that
vessels   may dock   there.     Hiellen   is
located about twenty miles from Masset,
along the automobile driveway and the
coast line, on the way to   the southern
end of the island.   A number of locaters
are clearing preemptions in the  neighborhood and the   locality   is   the   only
place where vessels can find a  harbour
in the one hundred miles of coast   line,
from Massett to the shores   of   Skidegate inlet.    A postofflce, general store,
and   several    residences    are   already
occupied at Hiellen, where   stands the
only promontory for meterological work,
and from which all vessels  navigating
the water of Hecate Straits take their
bearings along the   whole   coast   line.
The building up of a town in this locality
would mean a great deal to those traveling from Massett to   Queen   Charlotte
City, and will aid in   the   construction
of a scenic driveway from  one end  of
Graham Island to the other.

Graham Island Oil Fields
The Calgary oil strike has made
investors open their eyes and people are
tumbling over one another to obtain
shares, which are assuming prices
unprecedented in the annals of mining
of any kind. Companies are being
formed and millions upon millions of
dollars are beinginvested, for the simple
reason that oil has been struck in our
sister Province. A few men had the
"nerve" to invest in an oil drill and to
begin work on what seemed oil territory and they succeeded in opening up an
oil well that has been the cause of more
excitement than anything since the old
Cariboo days.
The oil was certainly in the place
long before the railway passed through
Calgary. Some people knew of the
indications many years ago; but none
would invest their money until the few
confident men took the initiative and
put down the first well. Over twenty
years ago the greatest geologist that
ever lived, SirG. M. Dawson, examined
the oil territory on the west coast of
Graham Island, and stated that the
formation and indications were in that
locality for the discovery of oil wells.
A few people went to the west coast
and examined the ground and all were
satisfied that the shale, tar, asphaltum,
parrifine and shale, in place?, were the
best of indications; but none would
invest money in a drilling plant until
the B. C. Oilfields Company decided to
commence drilling. Only those acquainted with the country and the
difficulties under which that company
operated can realize what the company
had to contend with. They went down
a few hundred feet and an accident
happened to the drill; this ment to send
the parts hundreds of miles to Vancouver. Every accident to the machinery meant delay and expense. A
company can only go so far with capital
provided and this company, in the face
of every known difficulty continued to
drill. They reached sevearl hundred
feet in depth and had to quit for want
of capital. Others took up claims and
stood back waiting for the one company
to prove the ground. Stakers and
others invested money in licences fees,
but would do nothing; the cry was:
"We will see what the B. C. Oilfields
Company are going to work their plant,
and we hope they will be successful."
They deserve to have a full measure of
success. The promoters were confident
and are so to-day, that oil exists there
in large quantities. In our opinion,
and that of experts, there is oil beneath
thisjisland in such quantities that the
world will be astonished when it is
opened up. In all directions there are
indications of oil, and even the man
who knows nothing of oil territory will
say that there "must be fire where
there is smoke." The writer has been
on the west coast of Graham Island
several times, ana is confident that any
person visiting there will say that it is
oil territory. In fact, every man that
visits the place comes away impressed
with the one idea, and that is to own a
section or to take shares in a company.
The lack of drills and drilling is a
misfortune. It will cost from ten to
fifteen thousand dollars to purchase a
drill, install.it and go down two thousand
feet.   A small amount of the  capital

now being invested in Calgary, that
will eventually be lost to the speculators,
if invested in our oil fields would make
any man or set of men independently
rich. We have the opinion of drillers,
experts and mining men that there is
oil in quantity on our island, yetit seems
impossible to interest capital. Now,
with the Calgary oil boom on, the people
are wakening up and wondering what we
have in this province. We are pleased
to know that the B. C. Oilfields Co. are
again at work, and hope they will be the
first and most successful company in

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.
