Road Work In Full Swing.
Road work is now general on the
Islands, all the camps starting up during the week. Three crews are employed between the Indian village and
Tl-el river, the foremen being Wm.
Duncan, A. Richardson and N. Schafer.
The rock work between the oil-works
and the Indian village will be started
in a week or two. At Sandspit a few
men are at work under Nate Ley. The
trail from the townsite to the Honna is
now well advanced and will be completed
in a few days. The work is under the
supervision of T. R. Davey. Nearly
100 men are employed at the various
camps.
This year there are considerably more
applications for jobs than there is work,
but that does not mean less money is
being spent on road work. Incoming
settlers, unless they have some capital
behind them or can depend on other
than government work, would do well
by giving the Islands a wide berth for a
few years at least.

The Obstructions On Yakoun River
fishing period, but in May and early
June many large halibut move into inshore shallows, especially on the east
side of Graham Isiand.
It is generally agreed that the British
Columbia halibut banks have seriously
deteriorated during the last few years,
and it is essential that measures be
adopted to save the supply from exhaustion—a fate that has befallen the
banks of western and nothern Europe
and the Atlantic shores of Canada.
 o	
Northern Graham Island Conservatives Endorse Mr. Manson
We are in receipt of a communication
from Mr. W. A. Robertson, of Victoria,
regarding the obstructions on the Yakoun River, which was referred to some
time ago in this paper. Mr. Robertson
took the matter up with Mr. Clements,
our representative at Ottawa, and the
Minister of Public Works, Hon. Mr.
Rogers, from whom satisfactory replies
were received. Mr. Clements has recommended that a grant be given by
the Department of Public Works to
take care of this important work, and
the Minister of Public Works has referred the matter to the Engineering
Department for a report as to the extent of the work and the necessity for
same. It is gratifying indeed to learn
that action is being taken by the Department, and we trust that the work
will be commenced as early as possible.
 o	
Halibut Fisheries.
Secretary Tingley  Forwards  Resolution  Which
Was Recently Passed.
The halibut of British Columbia have
an enviable reputation, for they are
less overgrown and of finer texture
than the Icelandic and North Sea fish;
a length of five to six feet and weight
of 250 pounds is exceptional for the
British Columbia halibut. The waters
between Queen Charlotte Islands and
the mainland, especially of Rose Spit,
and off the west shore of Banks Island,
were at one time veritably overcrowded
with halibut. ,
Very large fish were often taken then,
some weighing 150 pounds, but the
general weight now is only from 20 to
60 pounds. The halibut are scattered
all over the strait, but regular migrations have been noticed, and where the
waters of Dixon entrance meet the
current j, moving from the south through
Hecate Strait, and food appears abundant, the fish congregate in large
numbers.
The method of fishing with steamers
and schooners is practically the same
as on the eastern coast and, with few
exceptions, halibut men are easterners
who formerly, when the fish were plentiful, operated out of Boston and Gloucester. From the middle of September
to the middle of March is the principal
At an executive meeting of the
Northern Graham Island .Conservative
Association, held at Massett on April
18, a unanimous vote of confidence was
given to our representative, Mr. William
Manson, for his good work in Victoria
in the way of obtaining liberal appropriations for the island, which are being highly appreciated.
The attack on Mr. Manson, appearing in the Massett Leader, of April 10,
was strongly denounced, and the association is proud to support a man of such
integrity and ability as Mr. Manson
possesses to represent the island.

Graham Island
Oil Showings
Indications of a Vast Territory Underlaid With Petroleum.
In these days of extensive advertising
when capital is seeking investment, it
appears to those who are acquainted
with the possibilities of the discovery
of a source of immense wealth, that
there should be more progress made in
uncovering the miles of territory, extending from Frederick Island to Otard
Bay, where there is every indication of
beds of paraffine oil. The whole country
in that neighborhood shows shale, impregnated with oil, asphaltum, tar and
seepages, which all experts pronounce
the proper formation for the extraction
of a liquid so much now in demand.
One company, working under many disadvantages, has been drilling for the
past two years. They are expending a
great deal of money, without placing
on the market any of their stock, and
others have organized companies or
taken up individual claims, paying to
the government the license fees, amount-
■ ing to at least fifty thousand dollars
annually. The majority of the people
interested, as well as the original discoverers of the properties, are not rich
men, and the introduction of drilling
plants mean 8 a big outlay of capital.
If we have one prospective industry on
the island that shows evidence of turning out a commodity that will bring
prosperity, it is to be found in the
neignboihood mentioned. One drilling
plant cannot do the development work
as it should oe done. The means of
communication and the placing of drills
requires anexpenditureof atleasttwenty
thousand dollars by any person or company desiring to fully test the field.
Experts are of the opinion that the oil
wells are at least two thousand feet below the surface, and the further the
company now at work goes down, the
more confident the promoters are that
there is oil. It is more than strange
that men who are conversant with this
kind of work are not giving attention
te the ground on our West coast. The
British government, steamship companies, and others who are using large
quantities of oil, are aware that the discovery of the fluid in this neighborhood
would mean the diversion of a great
' deal of money that is now going out of
the country, to building up our own.
It would not cost a great deal to
thoroughly test the oil fields of Graham
Island, and a few of the dollars that
are thrown away on mining propositions
might be advantageously spent in prov
ing, once and forever, the value of our
ground as a producer of oil. Every expert, who has given an opinion, states
most emphatically that the indications
for oil are the best in the world. We
have not heard one adverse comment
from anyone who visited the west coast.
In fact, all of the drillers who have
worked for the B. C. Oilfields Company,
state positively that oil will be found in
paying quantities. • The shale on the
surface is in place. That it is impregnated with oil, is apparent to every investigator. The asphaltum and tar can
also be seen on the surface, and in places
paraffine wax has been found. In
former years government experts made
a cursory examination of the territory,
and their maps and reports show that
they found indications of oil. Considering that so many persons are interested
and that it would mean much to the
island, a geologist should visit the
the locality. The Dominion government
has a number of geologists engaged to
report on our coal and mineral; would
it not be a public benefit for a geologist
to visit our west coast and give an expert opinion on the matter? From
every standpoint, this would be a means
of assisting those who have taken up
the ground, and every person interested
in the opening up of our islands.
