Has Faith In Complain Cruisers        To Establish White
Graham Island      Are Much Too Slow Man's Fishery
Mr. Van Der Bom Compares It With Committee of Victoria Board of Trade Sir George Doughty Will Start Two
Delta—Bought Two Ranches Will Send Protest to Ottawa. New Industries at Aliford Bay.
Mr. I. Van der Bom, formerly of the
Surrey Nurseries, says the New Westminster Columbian, arrived in town
recently after an extensive tour in the
north and among the Queen Charlotte
Islands. Mr. Van der Bom after having
sold his Surrey property lost no time in
seeking another habitation in less
settled districts and is delighted that
fortune directed his course to Graham
Island. He has purchased 320 and 160
acres respectively on Massett Inlet for
$15 an acre, land which Mr. Van der
Bom waxes so enthusiastic about that
his stock of superlatives soon runs short,
and the splendid fertility of the Delta,
alone, is admitted as a standard of comparison. Some of the land secured by
Mr. Van der Bom is partly cleared and
other parts heavily timbered. His chief
object in revisiting New Westminster
district so soon is to buy a herd of good
milk cows, which he purposes turning
out to the excellent pasture abounding
on all sides of his new property. Mr.
Van der Bom, who has been all his life
engaged in the nursery business both in
Europe and British Columbia, declares
that soil and climate on Graham Island,
are as nearly ideal as possible for the
growth and cultivation of fruit, vegetables, cereals, flowers and shrubs, and
its dairying capabilities are unsurpassed.
He mentions as a remarkable fact that
there is a mixed breed of wild cattle on
the island which the settlers kill and eat
as they would deer. They are the descendants of animals imported to the
island twenty years ago by a settler who
subsequently abandoned both landed
possessions and stock, owing to lack of
markets for his produce. Conditions are
altered now. Prince Rupert affords an
excellent market and the advent of the
Grand Trunk Pacific to that city will
herald a land boom in the Charlotte
Islands, which, in Mr. Van der Bom's
opinion, will elevate prices from their
present moderate figure of $15 an acre
to sums analogous to those in the environs of New Westminster.
A daily steamer service between
Graham Island and Prince Rupert City
will shortly be inaugurated. Massett
Inlet is only forty miles at its nearest
and eighty at its farthest point from the
northern city. Every foot of land in the
island can be used for some remunerative purpose asserts Mr. Van der Bom.
The coal and timber resources are being
rapidly developed and the Rockefeller
companies have had an expert on the
islands for a long time back boring for
oil which he is assured must exist in
vast quantities in the group.  There are
The fisheries committee of the Victoria Board of Trade has decided to enter
a protest at Ottawa against what the
committee considers the inefficient
character of the two fishery protection
cruisers which are to be built for service
on this coast. The specifications for
these boats show that they are to have
a speed of 14 1-2 knots on their trial
trip, which would mean about twelve
knots in actual service. Vessels of this
speed would not be of, much use, as
many of the poachers would be able to
run away from them. In the opinion of
the committee, the fishery protection
cruisers should be able to make at least
sixteen knots while on patrol duty.
Moreover, the committe thinks that the
boats should be built on the Pacific
coast. The committee estimate that
the annual loss to Canada through fish
poaching is about five million dollars.

six diamond drills at work in the coal
area at present. Frosts do not obtain
on the islands so severely as on the
mainland and cattle thrive all winter
outside, without shelter or hay feeding,
as witness the wild cattle mentioned.
These have only deteriorated through
inbreeding.
Mr. Van der Bom is staying at Mr.
Burn's hotel at South Westminster and
will be there for a couple of weeks.
While he has no connection with any
real estate business or project, he will
gladly furnish any information on the
subject of the Queen Charlotte Islands
to any person thinking of trying their
luck there. A point he elaborated was
that the timber on the land would easily
pay for the clearing and give a good
living to an industrious man.
Sir George Doughty, M.P., of Grimsby, who is on a visit to Canada, in an
interview at Montreal a few days ago,
said that the purpose df his visit is to
go to Queen Charlotte Islands, where
the British Columbian Fisheries Company, Ltd., of which he is president, is
beginning operations on a large scsfle.
"I went out there," said George, "at
the request of Earl Grey, to examine
the fishing grounds and report on their
possibilities. The result was that after
reporting on them, I succeeded in interesting capital to the extent of one
and a quarter million dollars in establishing fishing and curing plants on the
islands. We have the licenses for 500
square miles of herring fishing, and the
salmon licenses for the two principal
inlets on the islands. We have now in
operation a salmon packing plant with
a capacity of 20,000 cases per season,
and we are establishing a herring plant
with a capacity of 20,000 tons a year.
My son is out . there as managing
directpr.
" We intend to start two entirely new
industries there. One will be the manufacture of what is called Marvis, which
is to fish what Bovril is to beef, and the
other is the manufacture of fish food
which will be a cheap food for cattle
and sheep. The Marvis is made from
halibut, and will be flaked fish in packages—perfectly delicious stuff, which
the grocer will be able to stock. The
fish food for cattle is a tasteless powder
for mixing with rations that is very
nutritious and fattening. Both these
commodities are now on the market in
England and are meeting with great
success. We have the patents for both
Canada and the United States."
The employes for the fisheries are to
be brought out from Great Britain.
"Earl Grey's object and my own primary object," said Sir George, "is to
establish a white man's fishery on a
large scale on the Pacific Coast. These
fisheries are now largely passing into
the hands of the Japanese. What we
want is a British population there, engaged in a sea-faring life, so that we
may have the nucleus of a Navy there.
This may become highly important in
the not far distant future. I am sorry
to say, however, that the Canadian
Government is not giving the encouragement and help that it should in the
transportation of these people from
Great Britain to the Pacific."
Sir George and Lady Doughty and
maid will arrive here today on the G.
T. P. steamer Prince John. Mr. Wilfred V, Doughty went south to meet
his mother and father and will accompany them north.

Presentation To Mr. Murdoch.
Our First Anniversary.
With this issue the Islander completes
its first year of publication and the
publisher takes this opportunity of
thanking the many subscribers and
advertisers for the support accorded it
during the past year. The circulation
of the Islander has doubled since the
first issue and goes on increasing each
week. The Islander circulates in every
settlement and camp, in fact is read by
nearly every person on the Queen
Charlotte Islands. Our advertisers are
also more numerous, and it is up to the
settlers and residents on the islands to
support them, for our advertisers are
to a great extent the ones who supply
the "necessary" in order to keep the
press running. Although the Islander
at present is not as large as we would
like to see it, still, we think, it fulfills
present requirements. The time is not
so far distant, however, when enlargement will be necessary, and with the
continued progress of the Queen Charlotte Islands, this is likely to happen
before we celebrate our second anniversary.

Communication Wanted.
Mr. Editor,—The absolute necessity
for a means of communication between
the north end of Graham Island and the
mainland was exemplified last week. A
poor fellow broke his leg; no doctor
located nearer than Massett. The
patient was carried there, a distance of
about twenty miles, by kind neighbors.
Doctor had gone to Naden Harbor. Two
doctors at the south end of the island,
but no means of communicating quickly
with them. Neighbors attended to him
to the best of their ability. Same lack
of communication at the whaling station
and cannery at Naden Harbor. Steamer
once a week, and no other means of
reaching the outside world for hundreds
of people. Give us a wireless station, a
telephone—anything should be none too
good for those who live away from the
business centres. What is the Prince
Rupert Board of Trade thinking about
when they let the islands go from them
and orders go to Vancouver on every
steamer ? If steamers must carry a
wireless outfit, surely it is as necessary
where so many people are liable to
accident. A telephone line from the
wireless station at Dead Tree Point,
along the beach to the settlements at
Tow Hill and other places would not cost
much, and might end at Massett. The
tolls would soon pay for the line.

Mr. John Murdoch, who has been
Presbyterian Missionary at Queen Charlotte for the past two years, leaves today for Scotland, where he will conclude
his studies at Edinburgh University as
a medical missionary, and later proceed
to China. To mark the occasion a farewell tea was given by the Ladies' Aid
on Saturday afternoon at the residence
of Mrs. Campbell, when Mr. Murdoch
was presented with a well-filled purse
from the ladies of Queen Charlotte and
district. Mr. Murdoch, in a neat little
speech, thanked the ladies for their
kindness and assured them that his
interest in the district would not cease
although he would be far away, and
probably at some future time might
have the pleasure of meeting them
again.

Fishing Station Closed Down.
The Queen ;Charlotte Fishing Co.'s
station at Tassoo is closed, the men all
having left because they could not get
their pay. Mr. Moulton, manager of
the company, has been in Vancouver for
two months and has sent up several
promises, but nothing else. Finally
provisions ran short, as none of the
local stores would give the company any
more credit, and the men came away.
