Got It Down Fine.
To the Editor of The Islander.
Dear Sir,—I wish to draw your attention to the enormous possibilities of high
speed, when scientifically applied to the
transmission of postal matter.
It takes just six weeks to get an
answer to a letter posted at Lockeport
and addressed to Queen Charlotte City.
This averages by precise astronomical
calculations 1 mile, 5 furlongs, 7 chains,
13 yards, 2 feet and 1 barleycorn per
day, or approximately one and three-
quarter miles, which undoubtedly is a
record for the highest speed ever attained since the time of historical man.
It is believed, however, that a letter
posted at Pacofi makes slightly better
time,  but owing  to the difficulty of
exact computation the figures in this
calculation will  not be available  for
five years.—Your truly,
Speedometer.

Rand Macdonald and Joe Dunn, two
well known miners of Moresby Island,
were seriously injured near Lockeport
on Tuesday, through an explosion of
dynamite while drifting in. a tunnel on
one of the claims of the.Apex group.
Macdonald is in bad shape, and it is
doubtful whether he will recover. He
Is cut all over the body and face, and
internally. One of his little fingers was
blown off. Dunn is suffering from a
compound fracture of one of his legs
and other injuries, but will recover.
Geo. Beaton, who was also working in
the tunnel at the time, was more fortunate and escaped with a severe shaking. Where the men were working
was at an altitude of nearly 3000 feet,
and great difficulty was experienced in
getting them safely down the mountain.
On Wednesday morning Constable Jack
received instructions from Prince Rupert to send the Doctor as speedily as
possible to the injured men, and Dr.
Wright, with Walter Dass as pilot, left
in the Mill launch about 10 a.m. Shortly
before they reached Lockeport they saw
the William Jolliffe, which they hailed,
and found that she had been despatched
from Prinee Rupert, with Dr. Cade on
board, to Lockeport early that morning.
The Jolliffe was on her way back to
Prince Rupert and had the injured men
onboard. The Mill launch continued
on to Lockeport, which was reached
about five p.m., and stopped overnight.
The next morning the launch left on
her return journey, and arrived at
Queen Charlotte about 8 p. m.

a great influx of settlers this year.  ,
We are in receipt of a letter from
Mr. L. Bullock-Webster, secretary for
the North British Columbia Agricultural
and Industrial Association, in which he
states that at a meeting held recently
it was decided to hold the Prince Rupert
Exhibition on September 24th, 25th and
26th. Mr. Bullock-Webster, in the
course of his letter, says he hopes to
visit the Islands in about a month.
We would suggest that a meeting of
farmers of the district, and others interested, be called as early as possible
so that arrangement may be made to
send a first-class exhibit of our various
resources, including lumber, minerals,
fish, poultry, fruit, agricultural products, etc. Mr. Richardson, secretary
of the Lawn Hill Agricultural Association, should convene a meeting at once
so that suggestions might be offered
that would benefit the district, and
brought to Mr. Bullock-Webster notice
when he visits the district.

Graham Island Coal and Timber Syndicate, arrived from the south recently,
states that the syndicate is figuring on
extensive operation* this coming summer. • A portable sawmill and a large
shipment of lumber is on the way to
Graham Island at the present moment,
together with a gasoline speed launch.

During the past three year the Queen
Charlotte Islands have been a " happy
hunting ground" for the wildcat promoter. On the strength of mining
engineers' reports—and others—quite
a number of companies were floated
that should never have been allowed,
and if there was a government inspector to inquire into such concerns as
have been floated the public would not
be out the many thousands of dollars
that they are. We might state, however, that there are some legitimate
companies at work and doing their best
to find out if the goods are here. The
most successful concern—as far as
fleecing the public goes—was the British
Pacific Coal Company, stock to the
extent of $150,000 having been sold to
the public. Now the question arises,
what has been done with all the money?
It certainly was not spent in development work on the property. It is true
that some work of a kind was done,
but it was apparent fromfthe start that
the promoters were out to eatch the
sucker all the time. We should judge
that about 10 per cent, of the $150,000
subscribed waa spent in development
work on the property; where the other
90 per eeent. went is for the shareholders to find out. Over a year ago we
had occasion to criticize the British
Pacific Coal Company regarding a misleading article that appeared in one of
the Vancouver newspapers, which was
inspired by one of the officials of the
company. With regard to their property at Slate Chuck, no commercial
quantity of coal has been found there
yet, although it was stated by officials
that "regular shipments" would be
made as soon as the wharf and tramway were completed. It is true that a
shipment of a kind of coal was made,
but that was the finish. The promoters
and those holding fat jobs certainly did
well out of the company, and we understand that some of them have left Vancouver for their health's sake. The
success of their efforts in regard to the
flotation of the British Pacific did not
satisfy them, and with some new blood
in their ranks, the same outfit floated
other two wildcats—the Canadian Araer-
ican Coal Co. and the Standard Coal
Co. Recently, the Mining and Engineering Record, in a lengthy article
re the flotation of the Standard Coal
Co., condemned the outfit as nothing
more than a bunch of grafters. Since
that time no advertisements have appeared in any newspapers in this pro-
province. With regard to the British
Pacific Coal Company, at a meeting of
shareholders held recently in Vancouver
the resignation of two directors were
accepted, and it is evident that a cleaning up process is in order. The following is taken from the Mining and Engineering Record:
"Few attempts at floating a mining
company are more severely condemned
than have the representations of the
Standard Coal Company. Ltd.. with
registered offices at Vancouver, B. C.
The advertising in the newspaper press
and in the prospectus sent through the
mails is false and misleading, and if it
were sent through the United States
postal service the men responsible for
it would render themselves liable to
proceedings for improper use of the
mails. The prospectus states ' Graham
Island is conceded to embrace within
her shores a larger body of workable
coal of exceptional commercial value
than any other like area of land on the
continent;' the company's holding 'is
estimated to be one of the greatest coal
holdings on the North American continent;'—both wilfully false statements,
marking this prospectus a fraudulent
one, and bringing the directors personally within the provisions of the Companies' Act of British Columbia. Under
that Act, any shareholder buying stock
on such false representations can apply
to the Court for judgment against the
directors personally for the amount of
their subscriptions. This matter has
already been before the courts, in the
case of another company, and there is
no doubt about this phase of the law.
The Canadian Postal Department has
intimated its intention of taking action
against such companies issuing false
and misleading advertising matter
through the man •., and in the prospectus
of the Standard Coal Company, Ltd.,
the Department has a good opportunity
to start work and exhibit its reputed
desire to protect the public in the same
manner as has so excellently been carried
out by the postal department of the
United States."
partments concerned to get additional
votes passed in the supplementary
estimates. He is urging for an increased mail subsidy for the Islands,
which will mean a weekly service dur
ing the winter months and a tri-weekly
in summer. Mr. Clements also hopes
that a vote of $21,000 will be passed
to improve the Skidegate Inlet narrows,
so that navigation between the east
and west coasts will be possible at all
stages of the tide, and at the same time
allow boats of deeper draught to pass
through this channel. Mr. Clements
is well aware of the conditions here and
his services towards bettering them in
our behalf are appreciated very much
by the people of the whole islands.

made after the manner of those seen
by the raven in the kingdom of light.
Since the sun had been kicked and
broken into fragments by the slave they
had the sun that we now see to give
them heat during the day, and the moon
and stars to give light by night. So on
one bright moon-light night the slave
shot an arrow into the moon so that it
remained there. A second arrow he
shot into the notch of the first one, a
third into the notch of the second, and
continued to do so until the arrows
reached from the moon to the earth.
He was very energetic in his work, for
he shot no less than three hundred and
sixty-five arrows, which took him three
hundred and sixty-five nights to accomplish, and which ultimately got transformed into so many days and nights
that finally they became the days of the
Haida year.
