Mr. W. G. Norrie, for some time past
on the staff of Mr. A. G. Larsen of
Vancouver, who succeeds Mr. A. J.
Becker as superintendent of the Lucky
Jim zinc mine, in Slocan district, was
at one time with the Le Roi Mining
Company, Rossland. Later he was with
the McGillivray Coal and Coke company
at Coleman, Alberta, and then the Columbia  Coal  and Coke company,  Tul-
ameen.    Still later he  had  charge of
some development work done  on  the
Ikeda mines, Moresby Island.  His many
friends  are  confident he  will   "make
good " at the Lucky Jim.
Mr. Andrew G. Larson was on Moresby Island of the Queen Charlotte group
during part of October. He examined
for a London company a number of
mineral claims about Lockeport, Jedway and Collison Bay, and was assisted
in his investigations by Messrs. G. H.
Dickson and B. Kirk. From a conver-
sation with Mr. Larson it was gathered
that he is favorably impressed with some
of the properties he investigated. Most
of the mineral showings examined are
thought to be sufficiently promising to
justify further expenditure in developing them.—B. C. Mining Exchange.
Lost One Catch Then Got Another.
The fishing boat America, Captain_
Michael Keating, had an exiting ex
perience while fishing in Northern
waters recently. The America was
pounded nine days on a reef, and when
she got off her fish cargo was spoiled.
Forty days ago the America left
Everett for the halibut grounds. As a
storm was rising, the craft grounded
on a reef at Skidite Point, off the west
coast of the Queen Charlottes. Fearing
they would perish, Capt. Keating and
his crew of fourteen rowed fifteen miles
to the island and camped. For nine
days the storm continued unabated.
When fair weather broke the crew returned to the America, finding the craft
badly battered but seaworthy. A full
cargo of halibut was spoiled and jettisoned. Then Captain Keating returned to the banks and made the largest
catch on record  by the America, viz.,
85,000 pounds of fish.

Before leaving for Ottawa to attend
to his Parliamentary duties, Mr. H. S.
Clements stated that the present system
of awarding contracts for public works
is too expensive and authority should be
given the government district engineer
to employ men on all the smaller eon-
tracts without calling for tenders. We
quite agree with Mr. Clements. There
is also a waste of time and labor in
calling for tenders for small jobs, and
at times is not satisfactory. For instance, tenders were called for a wharf
at Sandspit a few weeks ago, but it
was impossible for contractors at Queen
Charlotte to get their tenders at Ottawa
by the time allowed, as only a few
days elapsed between the arrival of the
plans, etc., and the time tenders were
due to be in. Of course the mail service
had something to do with the delay, but
not altogether. If this work was left
to the district engineer, as proposed by
Mr. Clements, the wharf at Sandspit,
we think, would have been completed
by this time. As it is the work ha3not
yet been started. Mr. Clements intends
to make an effort to change the present
system.
The Member is also opposed to the
segregation of Indians on reserves, thus
leaving these tracts of land undeveloped.
He thinks the government should build
more industrial schools for the Indians,
and also to take some steps that will
prevent the tribes from herding together and inter-marrying.
More agricultural experiment stations
should be established in the province,
thinks Mr. Clements, and he also favors
the encouragement ef white fishermen
and an abrogation of the boat-rating
regulations, especially on the Skeena
nnd Naas Rivers.
 o	
For some time past there has been
two Conservative Associations at the
north end of the island, one faction being known as "Progressives." In
future there will be only one Conservative Association, both wings having
agreed to joins hands and forget past
dissensions. This is as it should be,
and the "Progressives" in Prince Rupert should take a "tip" and follow
suit. We will say this much that the
"Progressives"  at the north end did
candidate in the Skeena or any other
district. At this end of the island there
is only one Conservative Association,
although some time ago a leading (?)
Massett Progressive tried to work the
same kind of stunt here as he done at
Massett, but without success.
 o	
No Redistribution Bill This Session.
That no redistribution bill will be introduced this session is the statement
made by the Ottawa Evening Citizen.
"There has been much speculation in
political circles for months," says'the
Citizen, "as to whether the ensuing
session would embrace a parliamentary
redistribution bill based on the census
announced last year. The result of the
measure will be to materially change
existing conditions, and give the West
more members, while the East will lose
proportionately.
"There is reason for the"statement
that a redistribution bill is not on the
sessional bill of fare as now arranged,
and the chances are against its coming
later in the session. There is no particular urgency in the matter, inasmuch
as the new delimitation of constituencies
and change of the representation could
not be effected until the next general
election."

After years of negotiations and attempted negotiations between the government of this province and the Dominion Government, in reference to
financial relations, the final stage has
been ^pached as the result of the visit
of Premier McBride and Attorney-
General Bowser to Ottawa. The Dominion Government will appoint a commissioner to represent Canada, who
along with a commissioner appointed by
the Provincial Government, and a third
probably appointed by the Secretary of
State for the Colonies, will form a
board which will hear and consider the
claims of British Columbia included in
the case known as "Better Terms."
Mr. R. E. Gosnell, the provincial expert in this particular case, has been
preparing the case of the province for
some months past and his budget of
facts and figures will be submitted to
counsel as soon as the formalities of
appointment are completed. Announcement te this effect was made by Mr.
Bowser on his return from Ottawa
recently.

HAIDAS AND THEIR LEGENDS
(Continued "from page 3)
only after exhorbitant fees had been
paid to them, what soul really had returned, and if the fees were proportionate to the occasion of a great chief's
soul, that soul was named as the one
that had returned, and by so doing these
medicine men always profited by this
species of witchcraft It was customary formerly to make potlatches snd
there were two distinct species of potlatches. When any ordinary individual
made a potlatch it was generally confined to the people living in his own
village, whereas if a great chief announced that he was going to make a
potlatch people from all the surrounding
villages were invited to attend. Should
the chief be in want of property to distribute he made a feast a few days before the occasion to all the people of
his tribe, and the people that attended
his feast were supposed next day to
bring him gifts to add to the amount
that he intended to give away. The
more frequently a chief made a potlatch
and distributed his property the more
important he became to all his followers,
and tlie more he received when other
chiefs to whom, he had given presents
made potlatches. Chief Edenshaw during his lifetime made seven great potlatches and was consequently esteemed
a very high and important personage.
