Graham Island Re MUNICIPAL Conservative Smoker    Large Company
Farmers' Institute        INCORPORATION      Was Great Success. Attended Dasice
Annual Meeting and Election of Officers        To the Editor of The Islander.
The annual meeting of the Graham
Island Farmers' Institute was held at
the Brandt place on the Nadu, Jan 2nd.
There were 21 members present, notwithstanding that dances were held at
Massett and Graham Centre the same
evening, which no doubt kept many
members from attending.
The meeting was called to order at
3.30 p.m. by President Geduhn, and the
minutes of the general meeting of Aug.
8th were then read by the secretary and
accepted.
The President then made his report
as follows:
Gentlemen: We have much business
to attend to this afternoon, consequently
I must not take up too much of our
time by my report, and therefore will
try to make it as short as possible.
First, I will assure you that I am
pleased that I can say that the past year
has had no troubles worth mentioning
for the institute. Our membership list
has increased steadily in spite of the
attitude of certain parties who seem to
be doing their best, in a quiet way, to
harm the institute. But in this I do
not think they will be successful, as the
Farmers' Institutes in B. C. are pretty
well established.
There were last June 89 Institutes,
with a total membership of 8209, and
there is no doubt that the membership
list by this time is much greater. It is
readily to be seen that such a body of
landowners have a great influence with
the government, and that resolutions
sent in by them carry great weight. So,
although the Institutes are non-political,
still they have much to do with passing
certain  laws,   etc.,  beneficial  to  the
settler.
All members should receive free all
government bulletins relating to agriculture in its various branches. There
are also other ways in which the Institute benefits its members, as enabling
them to get together so as to purchase
certain commodities in large quantities
and thereby making a great saving in
price. In regards to this I regret to
say that many of the members of this
Institute do not seem to make use of
(Continued on page 5)
Dear Sir.—Kindly allow us sufficient
of your valuable space for a few words
in reply to Friend C. de L. 's letter in
your, issue of the 17th Dec.
Your correspondent devotes altogether too much time and space to our
unworthy Personality. We would recommend him to take Kipling's advice:
'' Accept the help and the help disown.''
The matter under consideration is not
the individuality of the advocate, but
the Principles he advocates.
The Principles are clear cut and far
reaching. They are n»t Theories but
practical everyday community business
details, viz.: The grouping of community interests under municipal organization; the administration of all local
business by a Council Board elected
annually; the retention of all land taxes
and their expenditure locally so as to
benefit the property on which they are
collected; the eliminating of party
politics in the administration of local
affairs. Did it ever occur to you that
the Liberal, Socialist, Anarchist and
Conservative all look alike to the Tax
Collector and that a co-partnership, in
which all Political factions are equal in
the collection of revenue, while a one
favored set arrogate to themselves the
loaves and fishes of the expenditure, is
bound to lead to friction? Herein lies
one of the weaknesses of our present
system. The introduction of Dominion
or Provincial Party strife is both inadvisable and unnecessary.
Re the assertion that some wise man
in the city of Chicago endorses our
system of unorganized districts, we are
not surprised that you were forced to
go many thousand miles to get this
grain of comfort. Now friend C. de L.
we are afraid you are either out of
touch with the questions under discussion in your community or you are
suffering a slight attack of prejudice.
For if you turn to the next column to
your letter in "The Islander" of 17th
December, you will find under the heading, "Central Graham Island Settlers'
League," that one of the matters of
business to be taken up in the near
future is the fact, that for some time
(Continued on page 2)
The smoking concert held last Saturday night, under the auspices of the
Queenstown District Conservative Association, was a most enjoyable affair
and voted by all present as the best entertainment yet pulled off in Queenstown. Although the inclement weather
kept many from attending from the
outlying districts, still a fairly good
number attended. President Chas. J.
Clayton occupied the chair, and in the
course of his remarks, welcomed those
present. Before proceeding with the
concert programme, the secretary, Mr.
E. J. Tingley, gave a report of the
work of the executive committe, which
was adopted. After some other business
matters were attended to, pipes and
tobacco were handed round and soon
the boys " lit up" and prepared for a
good time. Thereafter a programme of
songs, recitations, stories, speeches and
instrumental music, as well as boxing,
pool and billiard exhibitions, passed a
few pleasant hours. Several new members were enrolled.
Special Opening Services.
The opening services in connection
with the new Anglican Church at
Queenstown will be held on Sunday
first, Jan. 25th, at 3 p.m. Subject—
"Citizenship." Everyone is most
cordially invited. Owing to the opening of the new church, no service will
be held at Graham Centre on Sunday.
 , o	
W. L. Barton left last week on a
trip to Vancouver.
' Mrs. Williams, Mrs. Boyce, Mrs.
Graham and Miss Adam of Graham
Centre were visiting in town this week.
B. L. Tingley's new and substantial
wharf, opposite the hotel, has been
completed and will be much appreciated
by the owners of power boats and others
as a safe place to moor.
Before leaving for Ottawa to attend
his parliamentary duties, Mr. H. S.
Clements, M. P., was interviewed in
Vancouver by District Government
Engineer George Hull and F. C. Wright,
regarding the clearing of the Yakoun
river.
The dance given by Mr. and Mrs. W.
F. Hastie last Wednesday night was
one of the most enjoyable ever held on
Graham Island. About one hundred and
fifty people attended, all the districts
on the inlet being represented, v/hich
must have been very gratifying to the
popular host and hostess. The hall was
nicely decorated for the occasion with
evergreens and Chinese lanterns, and
presented a gay and animated appearance. Mr. and Mrs. Hastie, who received their guests, warmly welcomed
old friends and new, the hostess looking
charming in a black satin grecian gown,
trimmed with gold embroidery. The
proceeding started at 9 p.m. with a
grand march and continued until 5 a.m.
A bountiful supply of refreshments
were served during the night from a
buffet, under the charge of Wm. Toop.
Mrs. W. Cross, at the piano, supplied
the dance music, and Mr. Allan Orr
capably discharged the duties of master
of ceremonies.
Among those present were: Mr. and
Mrs. C. M. Wilson, Mr. and Mrs. Cross,

B. C.'s Fishing Industry.
The annual report of the Dominion
Fisheries Department shows that British
Columbia easily leads the provinces in
this industry. It appears that the total
marketed value of the fisheries of the
province for last year was $14,455,488.
This is an increase of $778,363 over the
total for the preceeding year and establishes a new record. The salmon catch
was considerably greater than that of
the preceeding year, but its value was
over $3000,000 less. This falling off in
value was due to the fact that a large
proportion of the catch consisted of
humpbacks and other inferior kinds,
which, of course, sold at much lower
rates than the famed sockeyes. The
herring catch was much greater and increased its value by over. $600,000.
The value of the halibut fishery shows
an increase of over $600,000 owing to a
largely increased catch. As an evidence
of the rapid advance of the halibut
fisheries in British Columbia in recent
years, it is pointed out that four years
ago its annual value had not reached
one million dollars. Last year the value,
in round figures, was $2,500,000.
Another catch that is covered is the
oolichan, a run that starts again next
spring. The figures of the catch for
this run will surprise many as the fishery
seems to be practically undeveloped.
The oolichan is a very delicate fish as
well as an oily one and it has been suggested that it be put up in oil as sardines, but so far no capitalist has
thought of putting money into the venture. The run lasts but a few weeks
and this may be the deterrent that prevents its thorough exploitation. Altogether, according to the report 13,800
hundredweights of oolichans were landed
during the fiscal year, chiefly in the
Queen Charlotte Islands and neighborhood.

past, a feeling of dissatisfaction has
been spreading among the settlers of

Dimension and all kinds of Rough Lumber Supplied
Treasury have been expended in the
building of roads and trails. A discussion of ways and means of bettering
this condition of things will be one of
the first matters taken up. Also turn
back a few issues of "The Islander"
and you willread that the settlers of
the Tow Hill district are stylepl Anarchists and their Conservative Association disbanded (and re-formed on a
smaller scale) because they insisted on
applying a principle which is one of the
safeguards of the nation, viz. : "Majority rule," and the right to say where
and how the public moneys shall be
spent. "Evidently a public Spirit does
not exist." Your opinion to the contrary notwithstanding.
Now, sir, we beg to recall to your
mind another little horsesense about
riding a free horse to death. We also
wish to take you to task over your
avowed weakness for sponging on your
relatives. Your Poor Old Uncle Dick
has been forced to hike over to Dear
Old Lunnon, there to interview "His
Uncle" about a little loan of a million
and a half dollars to cover current
year's defieit, which deficit was caused
by too many of our people taking advantage of the Government's proverbial
leniency in matters financial.
Now, in conclusion, take this advice
from your Old Grandad. Join the
Settlers' League; listen carefully to
their earnest discussion of the many
live issues and weighty matters affecting the progress and upbuilding of this
great district of ours. You will find
that association with these Big-hearted,
Public-spirited, and Progressive Men
will broaden your views, free your
mind of distrust and suspicion and in
their stead, will grow up, admiration
and appreciation of your fellowmen.

MASSETT,     -     GRAHAM ISLAND
Graham Island Farmers' Institute
Continued from page 1
the benefits which it offers in the way
of cheap lime, powder, etc. For instance, last summer many of the members were inquiring about lime and
seemed to be anxious to get it, but when
the Institute, after a great deal of correspondence with the lime and steamship cos., was able to quote a very low
price for this commodity, so few of the
members seemed to be willing to purchase that it was impossible to order a
carload as intended. In connection with
the purchasing of stuff through the Institute it may not be amiss to mention
that our Superintendent, Mr. Scott, of
Victoria, urges all institutes to have
their secretary's bonded, so as to avoid
trouble and also make members secure
who are leaving money in the hands of
the secretary.
Another subject I wish to mention is
the importance of attending Institute
meetings. At the general meeting last
August only one man attended from
south of the divide, and none from Delkatlah district. This left the Woden
and Nadu districts to practically attend
to all the business of the Institute, and
at our directors' meetings it has been
the same story. Consequently the
officers in these districts havfe held the
meetings as near home as possible, and
I do not think any one can blame them
if they would consider themselves in
their place. I am speaking of this in
order to impress on the minds of those
who will be elected to office for this
year, the necessity of taking interest
in the work and attending the meetings
whenever possible. The members should
also do their best to secure officers who
will try to do this. Another thing I
wish to mention is that many of the
members have expressed the opinion
that the vote should be by ballot instead
of the open way in which it has usually
been taken. Therefore it may be advisable to take a vote on this before the
election of officers, so as to decide in
which way the vote shall be taken.
The Secretary's report showed the
Institute to be in a good financial condition, there being enough money in the
treasury to pay all loss on powder
damaged by the landslide over a year
ago and still leave a balance of $57.35,
not counting any membership fees for
1914. It also showed the Institute to
have 80 members at the year ending
1913.
The following officers were elected
for 1914 : President, Edward Evans ;
vice-president, Alex. Johnson; secretary-treasurer, F. Bvans. Directors,
A. E. Jessup, for the Masset-Delkatlah
district; Roscoe Rupe, Woden ; Ole
Anderson, Nadu; W. Toop, Mayer Lake-
Graham Centre. As no one was present
from the Queenstown district the
election of a director was postponed.

The mail launch "Queen" is taking
a well-earned rest from her strenuous
voyages of the past few years. She
has been dry-docked and her power
plant sent to Rupert for general overhauling, and she will be remodelled and
painted. Capt. Adam, the genial owner,
asserts that when she is again afloat she
will be the peer of any vessel on the
inlet in speed and comfort.
Mr. J. O'Flynn is busily occupied in
clearing a portion of Mr. G. H. Godwin's acreage on the townsite. Mr.
Godwin is planning a commodious residence as soon as clearing operations are
completed.
Messrs. Felix and C. F. Graham, who
recently purchased two townsite lots
from Nigel Sherwood, are also engaged
in clearing their land and intend erecting a handsome two-storey residence in
the near future.
Recent visitors to the townsite were:
Messrs. W. Cross, Grimshire, Marshall,
McDougall, Toop, A. D. Burton, J. C.
Brosh, H. Rowell, M. Rudd, Godwin,
Wormald, Sorensen, Lundquist, R. W.
Partridge and Mr. and Mrs. 0. Wright.
Business at Graham Centre store has
increased to such an extent that a scow
has to be requisitioned to cope with the
large amount of freight brought in to
Massett by each steamer.
Captain Edmund Jenkins, who arrived
on Thursday's steamer, is the guest of
Mr. and Mrs. T. L. Williams. Capt.
Jenkins is most favorably impressed
with the natural beauties and advantages of Graham Island.
Mr. nd Mrs. W. F. Hastie spent
Saturday afternoon visiting in the town-
site. They were accompanied by Mr.
and Mrs. J. M. Campbell, who thoroughly enjoyed the trip in Mr. Hastie's new
speed launch. They were piloted around
the townsite by Mr. C. M. Adam, who
pointed out the many advantages and
beauty spots of the districts, and the
numerous residences recently erected.
The party spent an enjoyable afternoon
and prophesied a great future for the
townsite.
