;
Our Representative
Visits Oi! Fields.
A representative of the Islander
visited the West Coast of Graham island
on a launch and exploited the shores
and interior from West River to Otard
Bay where the indications ef large oil
fields can be seen on every side without
considering that the whole coast line
from Cape Knox to Louis Harbor indicates that oil territory exists along
the who'e of the island.
It is supposed that about forty miles
will cover the distance from Massett to
Otard Bay although it has not been
surveyed and the distance can only be
guessed at. Passing Naden Harbor and
through Parry Passage, a Summer ride
to the West Coast is not dangerous,
although no harbors exist from Cape
Knox to Otard Bay. Our objective
point was Tiahn Point where an oil
drill has been at work on an old Indian
settlement and some hundreds of feet
of drilling has been done. We landed
in an anchorage at what is known as
West River and went up that stream a
short distanee. It is a splendid little
river winding to the interior of Graham
Island with beautiful scenery and is
navigable at high tide for some distance.
Returning a trip was made into the
interior starting from a stream called
Blue Creek and the traveling was bad,
with windfalls, devil's club and muskeg
to contend with. With the ground
overgrown it was impossible to locate
any indications of oil after leaving the
beach; but the whole of the interior has
been staked by oil cruisers, and it will.
be a difficult job to place oil drills on
some sections. After spending nearly
three days and traveling at the pace of
a mile an hour it was decided to return
to the coast. We went where man
never trod before even the Indian guide
was lost for some hours, and it is a
desolate country without a piece of
meadow land te be seen anywhere.
We again emerged at the mouth of
Blue Creek and struck towards West
River where the launch was located.
All along the beach we found rocks
impregnated with  tar  and asphaltum
and the prospects were the best that
could be imagined. Our next move was
to Tiahn Point and there the shale we
found in place and every indication of
oil. There is little seepage; but the
drill has been through black shale sand
and reached warm water before work
was stopped.     One of the members of
the company took a sample of the black
shale, placed it in a glass tube and ignited it.
With us was a man experienced in oil
drilling and one who owns a section in'
the oil fields of Utah. He was conservative in his opinion; but his words were:
n When they go down two thousand feet
they will strike oil or I am much mistaken. The deeper they go the better
the oil. I have seen many oil fields and
am interested in some of them; but we
went to work on indications that could
not compare for one minute with what
there is here. The shale is in place,
tar and asphaltum ozes from the shale
and there is oil in the shale. All that
is needed to test the field is ten thousand
dollars invested in a drilling plant and
the further they go down the better the
oil."
We then visited Frederick Island
where the same indications where present and we skirted back along the
shores to Cape Knox' going  ashore at
West River and finding evidence of oil
almost all the way along the coast to
Naden Harbor.
In our opinion given for what is worth
there is not one man we have interviewed
who has been down the coast of Graham
Island who is not convinced that oil
territory exists in all directions. It
has been asserted that the country looks
volcanic; but this does not appear to
affect the existence of oil in such a
country. Mexico and Japan with their
large oil fields are countries of eruptions
and earthquakes that, cannot be duplicated anywhere. The recent oil strike
at Calgary is interesting capital to the
extent of tens of millions of dollars.
There is no place in the Province of
British Columbia where better indications of oil can be found and one of
the greatest of geologists the late Sir
G. M. Dawson visited Graham Island
and reported on the oil showings many
years ago. His report can be obtained
with the map of the late prof. Ells
from the Geological Department of the"
Dominion. It would not be advisable
for people to run away with the idea
that there is open ground on the west
coast of Graham Island to be located.
It is all staked and restaked by persons
applying for licences; but there is only
one drill at Tiahn Point and it has not
been working for some time. A start
is being how made at Tiahn and it will
not be long before that portion of the
oil field will be thoroughly tested.
More drills are wanted end those who
are the fererunners in drilling will reap
a rich harvest.

Accident Not Serious
Local News Items
The following telegram was received
this morning from J. D. Mackenzie
government geologist:
"In order that erroneous reports of
the accident at Slate Chuck Creek shall
not be circulated I am sending you a

Minister of Mines, Mr. Brock, and I
shall be glad if you will publish it
together with this message in your
paper.
"I beg to inform you that Dolmage
and myself in company with J. M. McDonald, M. E. were slightly injured by
a fall of rock caused by a gas explosion
during an examination of the tunnel of
the British Pacific Coal Campany near
Slate Chuck Creek. Our injuries are
not serious and will only incapacitate
us two or three days. I am taking
the liberty of sending a copy of this
telegram to the Queen Charlotte
Islander in order that exaggerated
reports will not be circulated by the
press—Sincerely yours,
J. D. Mackenzie."

White Settlers Should
Be Considered First
Although the  people of   islands   are
interested in   the question  of Oriental
exclusion there is one .subject   of paramount importance to them   and   that
is the/neans  of   living   on their   preemptions and exisitng during   the time
necessary to fulfil the  requirements of
the Land Aot.     Without employment
of some kind on which   to   live   during
the three years that they   must   carry
out the law how is a poor man with a wife
and family to take a   living   from the
soil?   Almost every acre of land on the
island must   be   cleared   and   drained.
It is all very   well to say   that   every
pre-emptor knew the  conditions   when
he first took up   the   land;   but  times
were good and it was possible during
the months of absence allowed   from a
claim to make enough to carry   a man
through   the   Winter  and   support   a
family.    Hard times struck  the whole
coast; money  became   "tight;"  those
who  were   able   to  give   employment
curtailed their expenditure; road work '
that was carried  on  in   an  extensive
way was cut down and few men engaged.
It has always  been  looked forward to
that the Government would assist  the
pre-emptor; but it seems that it is hard
to make a living  and many  are going
away.   How to get locators and how to
to keep them in the country  should be
the work of the government; but there
does not appear to be any remedy and
it is a question whether those who have
endeavored to do pioneer work will be
able to continue.     Keeping  out   alien

The Miners' Ten
Commandments.
COAL AND PETROLEUM NOTICES COAL AND PETROLEUM NOTICES
The following commandments are
taken from a book published many years
ago on the early history of British
Columbia, and in view of the present
excitement on Graham Island are worth
repeating, although they are altered a
little to suit prevailing conditions:
"A man spake these words, and said:
I am a prospector, who wandered from
' away down east,' and came to sojourn
in a strange land, and ' see the bear.'
And behold I 'saw him. and bear witness, that from the tip of his nose to
the end of his tail, his whole body has
passed before me; and I followed him
until his huge paws stood still before a
clapboard shanty : then with his head
extended, he pointed to a candle-card
tacked upon a shingle, as though he
would say ' read,' and I read the
Miners' Ten Commandments.
I. Tb u shalt have no other claim
than one.
II. Thou shalt not make unto thyself
any false claim, or any likeness to a
mean man, by jumping one ; whatever
thou findest on the top above, or on the
rock beneath, or in a crevice underneath the rock;—or I will visit the
miners around to invite them on my
side; and when,they decide against thee,
thou shalt take thy pick and thy pan
thy shovel and thy blankets, with all
that thou hast, and 'go prospecting' to
seek good diggings; but thou shalt find
none. Then, when thou hast returned,
in sorrow shalt thou find that thine old
claim is worked out, and yet no pile
made thee to hide in the ground, or in
an old boot beneath thy bunk, or in
buckskin or bottle underneath thy cabin;
but hast paid all that was in .thy purse
away, worn out thy boots and thy garments, so that there is nothing good
about them but the pockets, and thy
patience is likened unto thy garments ;
and at last thou shalt hire thy body out
to make thy board and save thy bacon.
III. Thou shalt not go prospecting
before thy claim gives out. Neither
shalt thou take trry money, nor thy
' showings,' nor thy good name, to the
gaming table in vain; for monte, twenty-
one, roulette, faro, lansquenet and
poker, will prove to thee that the more
thou puttest down the less thou shalt
take up; and when thou thinkest of thy
wife and children, thou shalt not hold
thyself guiltless—but insane.

Remarks and Reflections
The Graham Island oil boom will be
due within a month when the drills
reach the 1000 feet mark.
Indian Agent Deasy was called away
to Naden Harbor and did not officiate
on Dominion Day at thesports. Better
luck next time.
Our neighbors are little behind us
celebrating their natal day. The 4th
July was celebrated in Ketchikan a few
miles from Massett in grand style.
Delkatlah is threatened with a flood
of oil before the next rising tide. We
wonder whether a demand will be made
for oiling the boulevards across the Bay?
The army of trollers have split up
into units and are being drilled by the
commanders from "overseas." The
Captain and his whiskers took a sly
glance at me.   •
' Vancouverites are wondering where
all the money is coming from to invest
in Calgary oil stock. It has been
stowed away is some "stockings" for
just such an occasion.
Indian Agent Deasy informs one of
the old Indians "that 'We'ah' the only
residents of the reserve when the
Missionary and mail carrier are
attending to their avocations elsewhere."
Our old friend McQuaker is now trolling and is practicing the art of following the behests of the sect that the
least portion of his name reminds us of.
The Quaker's are a silent lot and Mc.
while on the brina in his sixteen foot
dug-out cannot find time to talk Gaelic
to the jiative fishermen.
Captain H. Edenshaw returned from
the West Coast after a strenuons trip
with a scow load of meterial for the
B. C. Oil Fields plant at Tiahn Point.
Mr. A. Stewart with Driller Egan and
a party of men are now making fifteen
feet per day in the extension work of
the drill and it is expected that there
will be great developments in the near
future.

Passenger Rates:

Pre-emptors Located.
A great drawback to the advancement of the islands has been the custom
of the Indians to leave for the rivers
canneries and Alaska to take part in
the fishing there. At the present time
when spring salmon are being caught
in large numbers the absence of these
fishermen means the loss of thousands
of dollars of wealth that would be spent
on the islands. Forty Indian families
left during the height of the fishing
season which means a smaller output at
Naden Harbor and a loss to the business
men of the district. They will not
return until the end of August. The
closing down of the B. C. Fisheries
meant an exodus of all of the Indians
from Skidegate which is also felt in
that neighborhood.

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 coai 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 Prinee
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 wc 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.
