GRAHAM ISLAND CLIMATE
UNEQUALLED IN WHOLE DOMINION
Record for December and January Shows That the Weather Was Mild and
Bright---Scarcely Any Snow or Frost.
The statement was made a few days ago in the Victoria Times that "the
winter on the Queen Charlotte Islands has been the worst known there for a
number of years." Whoever gave the Times that information is sadly lacking
in knowledge regarding the climate on these Islands during the past few months.
Far form being the worst, it has been the mildest winter in seven to our own
knowledge. Without fear of contradiction, we can say that no place in the
dominion is blessed with a finer climate all the year round than the Queen Char-
rlotte Islands. The following record, taken a few miles from Queenstown,
speaks for itself:

Mr. James McCrea of Ship Island was
in town last week.
Provincial Constable Condon of Massett spent a few days on business here
last week.
Mr. Thomas Deasy, Indian Agent,
was a visitor here for a short time on
Saturday afternoon.
Rev. L. A. Bygrave held a service
here Sunday afternoon.
Fred. Nash, B.C.L.S., was at Denan
Bay for a few days last week.
The hour of service at the Anglican
Church has been changed to 7.30 p.m.
Rev. H. H. K. Greene will officiate
next Sunday.
GRAHAM CENTRE
On Sunday, March lst, an interesting
snd impressive ceremony took place at
Graham Centre Church, when the infant daughter of Mr. and Mrs. W. J.
Rennie was baptized by Bishop Du Vernet at the close of the morning service.
Mr. and Mrs. F. C. Wright acted as
sponsors for the child, who was named
Dorothy Irene. This being the first
occasion on which the bapt'smal service
has been solemnized at this end of the
inlet, the ceremony was witnessed with
great interest by a large congregation.
Contractors S. Wormald and C. Graham
are busily engaged on the erection of a
Swiss Chalet on the pre-emption of the
Rev. H. H. K. Greene at Kundis Bay.
On Wednesday last Bishop Du Vernet
wastheguestof Miss Adam for luncheon.
After inspecting the townsite, he visited
the homes of several residents, concluding the day by a pleasant evening
at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Boyes.
C. M. Adam, after conveying the
Bishop to Massett, returned on Friday
with a cargo of prize-bred chickens for
various settlers around the townsite.
Mr. Edmund Jenkins is now the proud
possessor of a dainty little dinghy,
beautifully built of yellow cedar by
Capt. A. Brown of Old Massett. The
peculiar turn of speed of this type of
craft was fully demonstrated on Sunday
morning. When propelled by the vigorous strokes of her owner, she. shot
swiftly past the Centre, leaving many
of the admiring spectators so overcome
by astonishment that they entirely forgot to attend divine service.
Mr. J. O'Flynn, who has been getting
out logs for C. M. Adam at Kundis
Narrows, has put some remarkably fine
spruce into the water, many of the logs
running over a hundred feet of clear
lumber.
Mr. W. Peters, of Massett, was a
visitor here for a few days. He expressed his astonishment at the remarkable improvements that have been
effected since his last visit two years
ago. He thoroughly enjoyed his stay
and intends settling here in the near
future.
Mr. and Mrs. F. C. Wright, who are
leaving on tomorrow's steamer for the
south end of the island, after a residence
here for some time, gave a farewell
dance on Monday night which was largely attended by many friends from the
various places on the inlet. The dance
was thoroughly enjoyed and the excellent music supplied by Mr. J. Thomas,
of Massett, put everyone in the best of
spirits. Dainty refreshments were
served during the evening.
Mr. and Mrs. H. A. Lamb of Massett
spent Sunday here.
The Provincial Government has given
a donation of $2,000 towards the building fund of the Massett hospital.
Claude Cornie, J. Thomas and Mrs.
McCulloch of Massett came up to attend
Mr. and Mrs. Wright's dance.
An order has been given to Henry
White to bring twenty-five deer and
ten beaver to the island. They are to
be delivered before the end of the month.
The concert held at Massett on March
6th, in aid of the Hospital fund, realized
about $25.00. Mr. Thomas Deasy acted
as chairman and the programme was
varied and interesting.
Capt. Henry Edenshaw of the Josephine made a quick trip to'Prince Rupert for powder for Mr. W. L. Barton
this week. The Josephine left Massett
at 1 a.m. Monday, arriving in Rupert
at 1.15 p. m. the same day. After
loading up, she left Monday night on
her return journey at 9.25, arriving at
Massett on Tuesday morning at 9.25.
The round trip thus being done in a
little over 33 hours.
The High Cost Cf Living.
At the present time possibly no other
subject is receiving quite as much attention in Canada as this one. It will
be a surprise to most readers to know
that during the fiscal year which ended
March 31st, 1913, Canada paid $11,5000-
000 in duty on food, and all of this large
sum is virtually a direct tax on the
consumer.
In glancing over the list it. is easy to
understand that the buying public are
themselves largely to blame in many
instances, for there are articles of food
produced in Canada that are equal in
every respect to those made in any
country in the world.
In the baking powder line alone there
were 667,904 lbs. imported into Canada,
ana this means the consumer paid in
duty the enormous sum of $67,000.
There are no better goods in the world
in this line than magic baking powder,
and it is made in a model sanitary up-to-
date factory, and can be procured in
any first-class store at one-half the
price the imported article sells for.
Such articles as raisins, currants, and
many other things, which do not grow
in Canada, or are not produced here,
have of necessity to be imported, and
the duty paid.
If the consumer would devote a little
thought and attention to this subject a
large amount of money could and would
be saved.—-Canadian Home Journal. QUEEN CHARLOTTE ISLANDER

Why Not Have Salmon Hatcheries
On The Yakoun Or Ain Rivers ?
The propagation of fish is becoming
understood more and more every day,
and it would be well to conserve our
supply when we have the opportunity.
In the neighborhood of the Queen Charlotte Islands, where deep-sea fishing is
the best in the world, it may not be
possible to save the halibut unless a
close season is made during the months
of December and January when that
species of fish spawn. The spring salmon do not breed in our rivers and
streams, and the sockeye salmon is
scarce. The humpback, cohoe and clog
salmon are caught in great numbers in
this neighborhood, and they ascend the
rivers to their spawning grounds. The
Yakoun River is almost completely
blocked with fallen trees between the
inlet and the lake, and thousands of
birds prey on the spawn which covers
the banks. The Ain River flows from
a good lake, and a hatchery on either
of these rivers would be a valuable asset for the district. Two years ago a
remarkable run of humpback salmon
took place, especially in Naden Harbor,
and it is expected that a phenomenal
run of these fish will take place this
year. The sockeye salmon does not
take to bait, and the only means of
catching them is with a net; the spring
and cohoe are caught with hooks, and
it is of the fresh water fish that an
interest should be taken in propagating.
In every one of the countries where
fishing has been carried on in the past
there has been a shortage; vessels are
going out further and further in search
ior tishing beds. The time to protect
our fisheries is right now, when we have
the fish—and to spare., The construction of a hatchery on one of the rivers
in this neighboord is of moment to all
of us, and as the Dominion Government
has been paying a lot of attention to
the fisheries in this district recently,
the aid of our respected Member, Mr.
Clements, in this matter would result
in something being done.
H. S. Clements, M.P., has introduced
a Bill to amend the Navigation and
Waters Act. He states that booms of
logs break loose and no provision is
made for picking them up and there
was a menace to navigation.
A joint commission of seven members
will arange for redistribution in the
House of Commons. The Government
will appoint four of the members and
the Opposition three, to arrange the
boundaries of the constituencies. This
custom has been followed by all governments.

COAL AND PETROLEUM NOTICES.
When Moses gazed on the promised
land he beheld no fairer sight than
greets the eye as one steps from the
tourist elevator to the top of this wonderful rock, five hundred feet sheer above
the bustling harbor. Here lies one of
Nature's masterpieces, bordered on the
east and north by inexhaustible fishing
grounds, on the west by flowing oilwell,
and on the south by the haze of a far
horizion—a gently rolling plain interlined with tree-bordered speedways,
checkered by bush meadows, cultivated
fields and wood lots wherein cozy homesteads nestle. A small lake and river
on which pleasure boats dance in the
sunlight with May-day abandon. Colors
blended with that infinite precision and
beauty practiced only by the artistic
hand of God. All overhung by the
smiling face of a genial sky.
Here is the home of a lusty people,
full   of  contentment  and   prosperity,
descendants of those who fought that
battle most strange and yet most true
when poverty  and plenty sought each
other to subdue.    The first settlers in
this vicinity came as units from different
parts of the world, having no element
of cohesion other than that of a common determination to free themselves
from the galling yoke of the taskmaker.
They had no money and less experience
in winning a living from the virgin soil
of a new country.    Consequently the
young community suffered all the ills
common to infancy, and was diligently
prescribed for and treated by doctors of
various schools of political medicine.
First came the great apostle of faith-
cure  methods, preaching salvation by
cultivating a boundless confidence in the
providential care of a paternal government.     His gum-shoe dope proved a
failure for the simple reason most of
the nourishment was extracted from it
by his lieutenants before coming into
the hands of the people.     Then  a  renowned professor of the orthodox allopathic school came from the south end
of the island pooh-poohing the unscientific   methods of the faith-fakir   and
holding up his hands in holy horror et
the deceitfulness of quackery in general.
He would, however, for the sake of a
fee or hope of reward inoculate the infant community with the virus of old
age, but the people would have none of
him.   A youthful follower of Hanneman
appeared,   with  a panacea   for  their
affliction in his attenuation of poverty,
known as cheap money.     He received
scant attention for by this time the
people were thoroughly aroused,  and
decided forthwith to throw physie to the
dogs, take a little healthy exercise collectively in the open air as the  best
means of exercising the evil spirit.   To
this end they formed themselves into a
development company with a nominal
capital   of  several  hundred  thousand
dollars.   Each individual trading eighty
acres of land for its equivalent in stock.
Gold bonds were issued on the security
of this land, and the proceeds from the
sale thereof was used in starting the
comprehensive  system  of  roads   and
drains now in use.
There was considerable difficulty in
finding a market for the bonds at first.

(Continued from page 3)
But when it was demdnstrated to the
money lords, that in addition to the
revenue producing value of the surface
of the security, there was sufficient alluvial gold underneath to actually pay
the expenses of the improvements
planned if carried out under the supervision of competent engineers, with up
to date machinery; the bonds were
snapped up in a twinkling and a few of
the spineless holders were cajoled into
parting with their stock. This infusion
of new blood shook the sleeping town-
site holder free from his holdings,
chased the owner of the phantom timber
lease to his hiding-place in the shade of
a» departmental desk; alienated the
Indian reserve and paved the way to the
creation of this wealthy island metropolis.
When the Dominion Government realized the extent of the island is greater
than that of an Eastern province, and
this the nearest port to outside markets,
the Department of Public Works gave
attention. A breakwater was built,
making an ideal harbor, whence the
daily boat takes one to Rupert in three
hours.
The Provincial authorities acquitted
themselves right royally when correctly
informed of the situation. In addition
to paying direct to the community a
stipulated sum for a given number of
years, they transformed the wind-break
reserve as far as Rose Spit into a beautiful park and recreation grounds. The
beach is as nature left it—smoothed with
scientific exactness by the industrious
plane of Old Ocean.
A huge transportation company has a
magnificent hotel near the face of the
cliff. The register bears eloquent testimony of its popularity. Season after
season the guests foregather from all
parts of the world to enjoy the tranquil
nerve soothing influence of the local
spirit.
All hail to that hardy race whose
boundless energy, intelligent industry
and artistic sense created this beautiful
living picture. Verily, the ancient scribe
had a far-seeing eye when he said: The
Gods pointed to the North and East
where summer suns doth rise, and said,
Behold ! We'll make you there an earthly Paradise, with fish and game aplenty
and garden spots galore, where nature
merely tickled will bring forth abundant store.
