QUEEN CHARLOTTE OIL FIELDS
TO BE TESTED BY GOVERNMENT
Great Britain Anxious to Secure Oil on British Territory—Expert will be
Sent Out—Graham Island Will Get Attention.
Dominion g®vernment oil experts are
to be sent to British Columbia to make
examinations of the various oil discoveries which have been made here.
News of this was communicated recently to several companies who have obtained leases of oil lands in various
parts of the Province. These were
asked to send to Ottawa what information was in their possession regarding
the fields in which they are interested.
They were alsp asked to make reports
on what work they have done, what improvements have been made and report
also on the indications of oil as shown
as work progressed.
It is explained that this season the
government geological department,
which has carried its inspection of
general mining districts to such a point
that accurate information regarding almost any section of the Dominion is now
available, intends to proceed to obtain
reports by its geologist on the oil lands
of the country.
Several important oil discoveries have
been made in British Columbia, most
notably those on Graham Island. On
the rock-bound and storm-swept west
coast of this island oil tar exudes,
natural parrafin wax is found in most
unlikely places, the rocks are saturated
with oil and tar and burn rapidly on that
account, the formations are good for
indications of oil, but the drills at work
thus far have not yet obtained sufficient
depth to tap the flow.
The government has had reports on
this field before, but nothing of late,
nor anything particularly detailed from
a geological standpoint. There are
several other places in the province
where indications of oil are strong.
The British Government is particularly anxious at this time to find oil on
British soil. Mexico and California at
present are the large producers of fuel
oil, and this is the character of the oil
most largely sought as fuel oil. It is
fast taking the place of coal in the
shipping world, and also for the furnishing of power for warlike vessels.
The fact that the Standard Oil inter-;
ests will soon locate a refinery on Bur-
rard Inlet, and in this connection will
endeavor to obtain possession of such
oil lands as are proven, is lending a
great deal of activity to the efforts to
discover the flows. Government experts last fall examined the discoveries
in the vicinity of Edmonton. Attention
this season is to be devoted to British
Columbia.

Regulations For
Motor Launches
The following notice has been posted
in conspicuous places on the inlet:
"Take notice that every vessel propelled by gas, fluid, naptha or electric
motors, of not more than five tons gross
tonnage, must carry a life preserver for
each person on board, and also one life
buoy with a proper heaving line attached
where it may be got at for use in case
of accident. Proper precaution also
must be taken against fire. The name
must be painted or stamped on every
vessel, and all the fire buckets and
floats, axes and life preservers on board
of every vessel must have the name of
the vessel painted thereon." As no
mention is made of carrying a row-boat,
it is possible that the other appliances
cover the requirements regarding
safety!!
Indian Bands Will
Attend Exposition
The two Indian bands have stopped
their winter practice, through the members leaving for their camps and fishing
grounds. Instructors Thomas of the
Massett Band, and Solomon of the
Skidegate Concert Band, deserve great
credit for the manner in which they
carried out their duties. It is the intention of the bands to arrange for attendance at the Panama Exposition in
San Francisco next year. C. Harrison,
S. M., James Martin, J. P., and Indian
Agent Deasy have promised to donate
a silver cup for competition between the
two island bands.
The year 1914 will be a memorable
one on Graham Island as regards the
activities by various companies in the
search for coal, and oil and it is to be
hoped that success will be the outcome
of the operations now going on. During the season it is expected that there
will be ten drills at work at various
points on the Island.
Mr. W. L. Barton, who returned from
the south last Thursday after a business
trip in connection with the operation of
his drills, reports that he has been engaged by the Metropolitan Trust Company, of New York, to put down several
bore-holes on their property at Camps
Robertson and Wilson.
The first discovery of coal on Graham
Island was made at what is now known
as Camp Robertson many years ago by
Mr. W. A. Robertson of Victoria.. Although some work was done on the
property the extent of the measures
were never thoroughly proven. In the
shaft that was sunk a seam of excellent
coal was found, but faulty.
Last summer a gang of men were engaged on this property prospecting and
doing other preliminary work. The
consulting engineer, Professor Milnor
Roberts, of the Washington School of
Mines, was so pleased with the results
obtained, that it was decided to prove
by drilling the extent of the measures.
Mr. Barton is now busy getting his
outfit and supplies in by way of the
Yakoun River, and as soon as the drills
have been moved to the new locations
boring will be commenced and continued
until December. Twelve men will be
employed in connection with the work.
Bausman, Oldham & Goodale, of
Seattle, are the agents for the Company.

Good Profits In Poultry Farming.
With the approach of Spring and the
fact that there will be no cold weather
to interfere, it is  advisable  again  to
direct attention to the opportunity our
settlers have of poultry-raising on our
islands.     At   the   south   end,   where
Messrs. Mattock, Smith, Barge, Gillatt
and others have poultry farms, the production of chickens and eggs affords a
lesson to the settlers of the north end
of the island.    It has been figured that
the cost of  producing one dozen eggs,
including the purchase of feed, is eighteen  cents.     Without considering the
cost of labor and time, the profits from
chicken  raising amounts  to  at   least
twenty per cent.     Is there any better
investment than this ?  Fresh eggs command all the  year round not less than
forty cents per dozen.     With one hundred chickens the feed account should
not be more than fifty cents each day,
giving the one hundred chickens twenty
puunds  of mixed feed daily.    A hen
should  produce  at least twelve dozen
eggs annually, which means  $4.80 for
each bird, and the one hundred chickens
would give almost $500 worth of eggs in
the year, with a cost of $182.50 for feed,
leaving $317.50 profit on the eggs alone,
without considering the  value of the
chickens.     The egg market will never
be flooded, and there is no better food
than the chicken arid its product.     On
every part of the islands we have ideal
places for poultry farms.     The Prince
Rupert market will take every egg and
every fowl we can send there.    Fresh
eggs and chickens are the best of food
for the well and the sick.    In all works
of hygiene egg food is extolled, and eggs
should be used in every household.  Tho
raising of poultry is  a work that requires attention, and, if it is the intention  to  make  our islands  the  supply
base   of   Prince  Rupert,   there   is  no
healthier   or   better   occupation   than
poultry farming on Graham Island.

'Twas in the summer days gone by
Brickbealer went to catch a steer.
It was a handsome brute and sly,
Of man or beast it had no fear.
Thus spoke "Brick"— "My neighbors all
'Twill be an easy job I'll allow,
For I've made up my mind this fall
The bull to break to pull the plow."
So "Brick" with Engblum that's called
"Gus"
Set out upon the cattle's trail;
They never dreamt of so much fuss
Nor thought that they would ever fail.
And soon they came to Kundis Isle,
Their eyes were bright, their footsteps spry,
For out upon the western shore
The whole blamed herd they did espy.
A smile broke out on " Bealer's " face,
"Just over yon's my big, brave bull,
To. catch him 'tis an easy case;
Of feed I'm sure he must be full."
'Twas easier said than done they found;
The bull's consent they hadn't got.
He raced around, around, around,
Until they all were feeling hot.
They chased him up to Tingley's farm
And got him safe into the pen ;
The rope around his horns they got
And sure they felt like heroes then.
Come here with me, my bonnie bull,
Come here with me, Brickbealer cried.
The bull, he came, with head bent low,
And " Brick " into the air fired.
" Gus " then to the rescue came;
He beat the bull with might%nd main
And helped Brickbealer to his feet,
Till   " Brick "    once   more    stood
straight again.
Next Kundis Slough they then did ford,
The tide was high, the water deep!
The bull towed "Bealer" straight across
And his thanks he thought he'd keep.
'' Now see you here, my Justus dear,
My words they were not all in vain,
I swore to you that I would plow,
And so I have and will again."
And "Gus" to "Bealer" then replied:
'' No need for you to feel so vain,
What tho' you plowed both deep and wide
You did but plow the watery main!"
So they journeyed 'long the shore
To where the Nadu empties out,
And all the people gathered there
The bull did quickly put to rout.
Then, as they crossed the Nadu stream
The bull tried hard to drown Brickbealer,
To save himself our man was keen—
Until on shore he felt safer.
Brickbealer's language wasn't mild,
Nor was it like unto a preacher's;
He sure was feeling awful wild,
| His anger spoilt his handsome features.
The air was blue with words real bad,
What words they were I won't repeat,
I know it made me feel quite sad
For fear some ladies we might meet.
Tho' few were there yet all have heard
Before "Brick" started on again,
He used such awful, awful words
The bull just hung his head for shame.
" Gol darn your hide, youjson of a witch,
If to the ranch I ever get,
I'll work you till your good and sick,
These funny antics you'll regret."
All the adventures that befell
The bull and "Gus" and also "Brick,"
'Twould take too long for me to tell,
And so, I guess, I'd better quit.
