Explosion On Apex Group:
Miners Have Narrow Escape.
While working on the Apex group
of mineral claims near Lockport last
week, Alex. Paterson and Bill Harris
had a miraculous escape from death.
Both men were working in a tunnel on
the property when they heard a loud
roar, and thinking that it was a landslide rushed out. Instead of it being
what they at first thought, found that
the blacksmith shop was on fire, and as
there was a box of dynamite containing
35 sticks and a box of caps in the building, Paterson rushed to save them. While
about four feet from the burning building
the dynamite exploded, hurling Paterson
several feet in the a.r. He received a
nasty cut over the right eye and was
severely scorched. Harris escaped without any injuries.

Reported Rich Strike Of
Silver Ore On Moresby Island.
John Gill and John Wilson while prospecting on the southern end of Moresby
Island are reported to have made a very
rich discovery of silver ore. The exact
location is not g; ven out but it is believed
by mining men to be the same ore
that Cy Mulkey was looking for this
past two summers and which he first
discovered in 1852. About 150 lbs. was
sent below for assays.
Betting On Return Of Laurier.
Several Vancouver people who have
been enquiring by telegraph from
friends in the East have been advised
that the weight of the betting in Montreal, Toronto and other places on the
election result is that Sir Wilfrid Laurier
will be returned to power.
Mr. Charles M. Hayes, president of
the Grand Trunk Pacific, received a wire
from Mr. William Wainwright, vice-
president of the line, saying that the
betting in Montreal was three to one
that the Liberals would be sustained.

Several parties are making arrangements for the construction of mills and

The "Prince John " arrived yesterday morning with the barge ' North
Bend" in tow.
J. S. Cowper Gave Great
Speech In Favor Of Reciprocity.
Trip To Oilfield On The
West Coast Of Graham Island.
Last Monday night a largely attended
and enthusiastic meeting was held at
Queen Charlotte to hear an address
from J. S. Cowper, editor of the Prince
Rupert Daily News, in support of Duncan
Ross, the Liberal candidate for Comox-
Atlin.
Mr. John L. Barge presided and in a
short speech advocated the reciprocity
pact. Mr. Neil McGillvray also spoke
in support of the agreement. The
Chairman afterwards introucded Mr.
Cowper, who met with a good reception.
The speaker traced the history of the
word '' tariff '' and showed very clearly
that tariffs were made for the manufacturers and not for the people. He
reviewed the reciprocity agreement at
some length and showed good reasons
why it should have the support of the
people of Canada and more especially
British Columbia, where living is so
high. The speaker went on to show
how the cost of living would be reduced
by this arrangement with the United
States and also how it was going to
help in the developmen of our fisheries
and lumbering.
Mr. Cowper got a splendid hearing
and at the close appealed to the electors
to cast their votes for Duncan Ross,
who was no "carpet-bagger," but one
who has many interests in Comox-Atlin.
The meeting was brought to a close
with the singing of "God Save The
King."
Mr. Cowper left on Tuesday morning
for Massett, accompanied by Mexican
Tom as guide.

Chief Officer Blamed For
Princess May Accident.
The finding of the court of marine enquiry in regard to the stranding of the
C. P. R. steamer Princess May off
Sentinel Island on August 5, 1910, was
announced last week. The finding is
that the first officer, John Richardson,
is solely responsible for the accident
and his certificate was ordered suspended
for twenty-four hours.

Steamship Disaster
In Alaskan Waters.
The Pacific Coast S.S. Romona while
on her regular trip from Juneau to
Seattle struck on Spanish Rock, in
Alaskan waters, last Sunday night and
is a total wreck. All the passengers
and crew were saved. It is reported
that she had on board $105,000 in golJ
from the mining camps of Alaska. Tlie
Romona recently replaced the steamer
Spokane on this run, which was wrecked
near Seymour Narrows a short time ago.
Austin M. Brown, of Prince Rupert,
with a party of five others visited the
west coast of Graham Island recently
and secured a large section of territory
in the " oil belt," near Tiahn. The trip
occupied several days and was greatly
enjoyed by the land stakers, with the
exception of a "cold bath" which four
of the visitors took in the waters near
the mouth of the West River. The
plant owned by the B. C. Oilfields Co.,
at Tiahn Harbor, was visited and most
favorably commented on. The derrick
and machinery erected there is the best
procurable and is boring through the
shale at the rate of thirty feet per day.
Seven men are employed in the work
and the indications for obtaining oil
within a short time are most favorable.
On the return of the party to Prince
Rupert a company was organized with
Dr. Kergin as President, Geo. D. Tite,
Vice-President, and Chief Vickers as
Secretary. Thirty residents of Prince
Rupert and Massett are in the company,
and steps will be taken to incorporate
and develop the property. The visitors
to the west coast are optimistic and consider the ground better than the oilfields
in California and other sections. Coal,
tar, asphaltum and everything indicating the presence of oil was discovered.
A competent man, who is interested in
the Utah and other oilfields, accompanied the party and was so much
pleased with the prospects that he
asserted the indications are ideal. He
made the assertion that no other locality
shows better surface indications and the
plant now operating will, most assuredly, "strike oil " when down from one
to two thousand feet.
In the course of the time occupied in
visiting the west coast, the fishing
grounds and land on the neighboring
islands attracted the attention of the
party. There is little agricultural land,
and the timber is not considered by them
of very great value. The weather on
the west coast cannot be depended on
at this time of the year, and there are
few harbors or places of refuge for
small craft. Should the oilfields prove
of value it will be very easy to run pipe
lines to Naden Harbor and other localities. There is little land remaining for
those intending to locate. The coal and
oil locations cover many miles of territory, reaching from Rennell Sound to
Frederick Island and extending inland
for a distance of fifteen miles.

MR. CLEMENTS' REAL TRADE OPINIONS
On sundry telephone poles all over the townsite of Prince Rupert
are posters circulated by Mr. Herbert S. Clements of 535 Per.der St.
West, Vancouver, who is anxious to represent the constituency of
Comox-Atlin at Ottawa.
The posters are well worth studying. They contain in addition
to a large picture of the gentleman's handsome features, a sort of
Shorter Catechism of the political creed of the gentleman from Vancouver.
By Shorter Catechism, we do not mean the political platitudes
on the card—"A White Canada—Canada for the Canadians and the
Empire—A Square Deal for British Columbia—" Those are merely
conventional word-padding.   They mean nothing.
The real trade opinions of the Vancouver gentlemen are to be
seen at the foot of the poster, where in small type is says that the
posters were printed in Vancouver at the News-Advertiser office.
Although Mr. Clements of Vancouver is travelling through this
great district of Comox-Atlin, telling us all in a superior sort of way
that the only way to build up a community is to keep all its trade within
its own borders, he has started in by having his printing done ir. Vancouver.
There are lots of printing establishments in Comox-Atlin. There
are five in the city of Prince Rupert alone. But the gentleman who
says he believes in the "Canada for the Canadians" philosophy, and
in "a square deal for British Columbia," when it comes to spending
a few dollars in printing in an effort to become M. P. for Comox-Atlin,
sends his orders away from the constituency to Vancouver.
And he has either so little sense of logic, or so poor an opinion
of the intelligence of the people of Comox-Atlin, that he adver.ises
the fact on every poster he has sent out.
It is idle for Mr. Clements to prate of protection and loyalty—
to tell audiences that he would buy Canadian potatoes at 4c a pound
instead of American potatoes at 2c a pound.
The simple fact remains that the only item of expenditure he
could have placed in the constituency of Comox-Atlin. he ser.t out
of the constituency to his own city of Vancouver.
On the bottom line of the poster circulated by Mr. Herbert S.
Clements of 535 Pender St. West, Vancouver, is a true statement of
that gentleman's real trade opinions when, it comes to spending his
own dollars.   Take a good look at it.
COMMENTS ON THE CAMPAIGN
"I think they've unloaded a dead one onto us," was the remark
overheard at a political meeting Wednesday. Guess whose meeting
it was, and who the "dead one" is. No prizes offered. The contest
is too easy.
At his first meeting in Prince Rupert, Mr. Clements said he vv?s
not a "carpet-bagger." Yet his nomination paper describes him
as of 535 Pender St. West, Vancouver. This is almost as glaring as
his denial of Hansard, or his refusal to fulfil his challenge to retire.
If there is anything you want people to know Say it Thro the "Islander
The Mayor's ideas of reciprocity are even more amusing than.
Mr. Clements'. He started out by handing the ladies of Prince Rupen
a raw cut by advising all the men in the audience to go to the United
States when they wanted wives. He could see no disloyalty in that.
But he thinks it is disloyal to buy bacon at a reduced ducy in the
United States and thus frustrate the robber captains out of a 2-cen.t
a pound levy.
>t
Here is a problem in higher mathematics for the Mayor. If
five thousand American wives coming into Prince Rupert cannot
affect their husbands' loyalty to the British flag,*how many cubic
yards of American pork and beans will we have to eat free of duty
before we will clamor for annexation. QUEEN CHARLOTTE ISLANDER

Reciprocity will make a greater

and will increase the price of our
interior farm lands and our city
property.
Reciprocity will be of great
value to the laboring men. It
will mean cheaper living. It will
start the greatest development
this country has ever seen. Everything will tend to make for a
better time for the workingman.

Polling Arrangements Completed.
Election day is Thursday next and all
arrangements for taking the poll on the

ranching on a large scale; that is to say,
they have taken to raising chickens and
ducks. It is reported that " Ike " has
two of the best "layers" on the Islands,
but report does not say whether they are
ducks or drakes. We infer they are
ducks, as they produced in round numbers 300 eggs since April. We are glad
Ike and All are bu»y	
Cochrane's surprising shirt sale is
worth having a look at.
