With the shuffling of parliamentary
representatives by the reciprocity issue,
it is interesting to note some peculiarities about our M.P. 's outside of their
party complexion.
Who are the oldest men in the House
-not in age, of course, but  in   parliamentary experience ?
Answer: Hon. John Haggart, elected
in 1872 ; Sir Wilfrid Laurier, 1874 ; Dr.
T. S. Sproule, Orange champion, 1878;
Mr. George Taylor, of Leeds, 1880 ; Hon.
George Eulas Foster, 1881; Mr. David
Henderson, Halton, 1888; Dr. Reid,
Grenville, 1891; Colonel Sam Hughes
and Mr. W. F. McLean, 1892.
There are 7 lawyers holding down
parliamentary seats -such are the
spielers.
Thirty-six farmers desert the fields
for a bench in parliament during the
winter.
Thirty-two storekeepers leave the
cash register to the clerk and hike for
Ottawa.
Twenty-one doctors prefer tariff
clinics.
Seventeen manufacturers are interested in Hyman's Gallows.
Ten lumbermen represent the Canadian tree.
Eight newspapermen are truly the
Fourth Estate.
Seven notaries learn Ottawa money-
to-loan methods.
Four brokers are part of the most
uncertain and fluctuating stock in the

equally true of several other of the
principal inlets in this group of islands.
This current is taken advantage of by
the residents who live up these inlets,
and will in the near future be a great
consideration in connection with the
movement of the timber from these
great v/ater ways to the saw mills and
pulp mills.
Moresby Island has an approximate
length of 72 miles, but is a mere skeleton as compared with Graham Island,
though a very important one on account
of the valuable minerals that have there
been discovered.
Prevost Island and the other islands
as far as Cape Saint James have a total
length of about 20 miles. The separation of the Islands may be said to be
accidental, caused principally by the
casual inosculation of the inlets which
characterize both the eastern and the
western coasts. These four islands that
I have referred to constitute about
eighty per cent, of the entire area of
the Queen Charlotte group. (There are
over two hundred islands in the entire
group.) I may say in passing that
Prevost Island was named after Admiral
Prevost.

Vancouver is the place that looks
nearest like making a first-rate imitation of Montreal's record as a Canadian
emporioum. From 27,000 to 125,000 is

W. H. Cullen, formerly assistant, has
been appointed King's Printer. Mr.
Cullen is a brother of Frank Cullen, of
the Prince Rupert Journal, and one of a
family of printers. He was for'some
years foreman of the Victoria Colonist.
He is well known in lacrosse circles, and
refereed the Vancouver-Westminster
games.

official visit to Massett, states that the

The G. T. P. steamer Prince John
arrived Friday night. A new schedule
has been arranged for the island service
and in future the steamer will leave
Prince Rupert every alternate Thursday
afternoon for Skidegate, Queen Charlotte and Moresby Island ports.
Provincial Chief Constable Owen, of
Prince Rupert, made the round trip on
the " Mary." His visii was an official
one in connection with his position as
Licensing Inspector for the district.
A number of well known mining men
on the islands went south yesterday on
the "Princess Mary," among whom
were J. D. Sword, E. M. Morgan, Nels
Pearson, Alex. Paterson, J. Winter-
mute and Tom Matson.
Cochrane still has some bargains in
shirts, overalls, blankets and tin pants.
Don't forget the social and dance
on Friday night in Barge's Hall. A
good time is in store for those who
attend as there will be games, dancing
and other amusements. The whole proceeds will go towards the building fund
of the new Presbyterian Church.
The first afternoon tea in connection
with the Presbyterian Church building-
fund was held on Thursday at the home
of Mrs. Fraser and proved quite a
success. QUEEN CHARLOTTE ISLANDER

The "Queen Charlotte News" is
certainly a funny name for our contemporary, considering how little news
it gives of either the islands or this
town. What little local matter it has
is often maliciously exaggerated or
willfully misleading. It devoted half a
column last week to describing a certain
birthday celebration, attended with
"damage to property" and "danger
to life." Both these accusations are
absolutely false. By the way, the
person whom the •' News'' attacks so
savagely was first proposed for J. P.
by D- R. Young, managing owner of
the Queen Charlotte Islands.
We have great pleasure in announcing
that Mr. Charles Harrison, of Massett,
will contribute a series of articles dealing with the early history of the Queen
Charlotte Islands down to the present
time. The writer is well acquainted
with his subject and is spending considerable time and labor, on which, we
are sure, will prove interesting reading
and at the same time be appreciated by
our readers. He will also tells us about
the Haidas and their legends, and of
the development that has taken place
since he first started his pioneering
work on Graham Island many years ago.
The first instalment appears in this
issue and will be continued from week
to week.

High Jinks On Hallowe'en.
"There was a sound of revelry by
night" at Beattie's on Hallowe'en,
'' George'' being the host of a gay surprise party. Chief engineer Wilson of
the Prince Albert sang, the talking
machine played and everybody was
happy. There was a hat-trimming competition for the men, in which Mr.
Beattie won the prize, a Japanese
umbrella, and a pencil-sharpening competition for the ladies, which was won
by Mrs. Fraser. Refreshments and
a little dancing closed a pleasant evening.

The C. P. R. steamer Princess Mary
arrived Saturday morning from the
south and Prince Rupert and after discharging freight left for Moresby Island
points. She returned Sunday afternoon
when a number of passengers left for
the south. ,
Mr. T. Kelley and party of surveyor
returned to town yesterday.
The Prince Albert arrived Tuesday
night and loaded 209,000 feet of lumber
for Victoria and the east. She left on
Thursday afternoon for Vancouver.

Editor Islander,—When a man endeavours to make progress with a newspaper, especially in a new and sparsely
settled country, he requires encouragement, and it can be given in two ways:
The first requisite is that people should
advertise their wares and wants. The
second is to subscribe for the newspaper.
Our American cousins, who received
such a set-back a few days ago, have
their newspapers in every hamlet and
town. They realize the value of a newspaper. They support the home journals
for many reasons, and the first one is
" that it pays." The man who advertises is known; his place of business is
known; his wares are known and his
prices are known. We live in the days
of "publicity and competition." No
business man will make a start in a back
alley; he begins in a good, clean store,
on a business street. That is one way
of advertising. His wares are the best
—that is another way. This is all done
in the store. He must let the public
know that he is in business, and must
advertise in the local newspaper. He
then looks at the circulation of the paper
—that is where the editor and general
public comes in. The editor must supply
reading matter to engage the attention
of the public, and the subscribers must
remember that a local newspaper is a
public necessity. When you can receive
a newspaper for one year for the small
sum of two dollars—not the wages of
one day for the poorest paid workmen
on these islands—that is where the
assistance comes from the readers of
home newspapers. I am one of them,
and here are my two dollars, Mr. Editor.
I want you and your readers to understand that I am a printer, and know the
expense and trouble connected with
publishing a newspaper, no matter how
small it may be. Two dollars would not
pay for the ink for one publication,
leaving aside the brains and labor for a
year. Two dollars are lessjthan half-a-
day's pay fort a Union Printer, and we
think it an awful sum to have a home
journal doing our advertising and supplying us with news for a whole year.
We want these islands to go ahead;
nothing can advance them like a newspaper. W.e want our business to succeed,
no one will know we ever lived if we
don't advertise. We want to buy or sell
something. I knew a man in Victoria
who had a toy store during my boyhood
days ; he has the largest department
store in the Province to-day. He advertised then and is the greatest advertiser

in the Province now. He did not go to
Seattle and other places to advertise.
Not he. The local papers were good
enough for him.
Then the subscriber: Are the outside
newspapers doing anything to make
these islands better ? Are the owners
of outside newspapers boosting you and
your business? Do the readers and
advertisers realize what a struggle it is
for a man to keep a business going that
requires constant attention and capital
to run it. I know what the struggles
of the early newspaper men were in the
now large cities of the Province when I
was "the devil" under them. They,
like our newspaper men, had a hard
time paying weekly wages ; but they
" stuck to it" and grew with the towns
and cities ; but others are reaping the
benefit now. I worked under Messrs.
Higgins, Robson and other pioneer
journalists in the early days of Vancouver Island, and few remember that
they assisted more in advertising British
Columbia than any other man in the
colony days.
Then advertise, subscribe, do something to assist the great '' developing
machine" on Queen Charlotte Islands.
There is nothing to equal a newspaper
when you want anything or require
people to know anything. The greatest
of home industries is a newspaper, and
for goodness sake remember that a
town is dead that cannot support at
least a weekly local publication.
