Ikeda Group Sold.     Sandy's Boost is Good. Indian Officials on Visit.
Word has been received in Victoria,
says the Daily Times, that the famous
ikeda group of claims on Moresby
Island have been sold to an English
Syndicate. One of the owners of the
property was W. H. Armstrong, of
Vancouver. The price paid for the
property has not yet been made public.
Collieries Co, Wins.
By a judgment, handed down by Mr.-
Justice Clements, the Graham Island
Collieries is successful in its suit against
Mr. J. McLeod for a sum of $7200 due
on a subscription for $10,000 stock in
the company.
The defence in the ease was that the
defendant, in agreeing to purchase the
stock, had varied the dates of payment,
and that in accepting his subscription
the plaintiff company had not expressly
stated that it accepted the amended
dates and amounts of the instalments.
It was contended, therefore, that the
plaintiff company could only make a demand for payment by issuing a call on
the stock. A counterclaim for $90,000,
which had been setup by the defendant,
was dropped before the action came to
trial a week ago:

"When the Grand Trunk Pacific is
completed through to Prince Rupert
we look for great development on the
Queen Charlotte islands," said E. M.
Sandilands, government agent, magistrate and gold commissioner for tbe
Queen Charlotte islands to a reporter
for the Victoria Times at the Empress
hotel last week. "Graham island
alone would make a splendid summer
resort. There are miles of white,
clean sand beaches which make ideal
speedways for automobiles, just like
the Ormond beach speedway in Florida.
"We expect," Mr. Sandilands continued, "that the railway company will
build a large summer hotel there. Preparations are being steadily made for
the improvement of transportation facilities, ard during the past year we
have expended $55,000 of government
money on the construction of roads.
People down here don't  appreciate the
resources of that country at all. We
have immense tracts of big timber, the
greater part of whicn is yellow cedar,
which, as you know, is very valuable.
The mineral deposits are very valuable,
too. The Indians of the island nre
the Hiada tribe, the best aboriginals in
the province.''
Mr. Sandilands is very well known
in Victoria, and particularly in the
mining districts of the interior. Since
his appointment as government agent
he has beenindefatiguable in his efforts
to improve the transportatson facilities, and by the time the Grand Trunk
Pacific is completed there will be a
great expansion of industry.
Was Appointed Secretary.
A. M. Tyson, superintendent of Indian
agencies for Northern B. C, accompanied by Thomas Deasy, Indian agent
for the Queen Charlotte Islands, and
F. J. Smyth, constable, arrived here
last Monday on the steamer Prince John.
Mr. Tyson is making his annual visit of
inspection of the agencies under his
jurisdiction. The party visited Skide-
during the week and conferred with the
Council of that village.
The Haidas of the Queen Charlotte
Islands are the most progressive race
of Indians on the continent. The Skidegates are up-to-date in their ideas and
their village is clean and in many respects a model one. Their houses are
modern and would be a credit to any
town in British Columbia. We understand that they now contemplate installing both Wetter and lighting systems.
A great deal of credit is due Mr. Deasy,
who for the past four years has acted
as Indian agent for the Queen Charlotte
Islands, as it is in a large measure due
to him that the Haidas have learned
their modern ideas.

At a meeting of the Queen Charlotte
Hospital Board last Tuesday afternoon,
Mr. P. S.Jack was appointed secretary-
treasurer. It was agreed to hold regular monthly meeting of the board of
management. Several improvements
on the hospital buildings will be gone
on with.

Staff Changes on Prince John.
Mr. E. Cridge, who for some time
past has been temporarily acting as
purser on the Prince John, returns to
the Prince Rupert, and Mr. Anning,
chief steward on the Prince John, has
been promoted to the Prince Rupert.
C. D. Emmons, a well known mining
engineer who has spent considerable
time on Graham Island during the past
five years, was sandbagged in Portland,
Ore., some time ago, receiving serious
injuries that necessitated his removal
to an hospital. From information received, we are glad to learn that Mr.
Emmons has so far recovered as to be
able to leave the hospital. It is said
that it was case of mistaken identity.
Mr. Emmons had $500 and some valuable jewelry on his possession at the
time, but nothing was taken.
An Advocate Of Canada.
Lady Doughty, wife of Sir George
Doughty, is the latest society leader to
become an advocate of Canada. Sir
George, who sits for Grimsby, is, of
course, prominently associated with the
British Columbia Fisheries as well as
other activities in Canada. Lady
Doughty has recently given several
lectures on the Dominion in her husband's constituency. The visit she paid
last year to Canada will probably be
repeated this year.

Important ehanges in provincial lands
and forests legislation are proposed in
the ministerial measures introduced in
the House recently, the former rejecting the system of the past in charging
for pre-empted Crown Lands and offering instead free holdings for settlers,
who will be required to pay merely the
$2 record fee and $10 for Crown grant.
The standard size of a holding will continue to be 160 acres, although power is
retained in the minister of lands to decide as to the size of any individual preemption, or to reject an application
entirely, if such action appears to him
in the public interest, an explanation of
this provision being found possible in
the fact that many Orientals have heretofore sought to take advantage of the
pre-emption law in securing possession
of provincial lands.
The minister is also empowered to
allot pre-emptions, if it is deemed in
the public interest, even in such reserve
localities as provincial parks.
As against the loss of revenue involved in this new policy, the amendment to the Forests Act provides for an
increase of the royalty collected on
timber cut on Crown lands from fifty
cents to one dollar per thousand feet,
board measurement, such increase, however, not taking effect Ui.til three years
hence. There are also found in the
Forests' Act A «v.endment Bill provisions
extending the time for timber holdings
surveys, upon recommendation of the
surveyor-general, enlarging the prohibition of export of unsealed timber
by making such timber and the tugs
towing it both liable to seizure and confiscation; prescribing reforms in timber
markings, and increasing the annual
collections for forest protection service
from timber licences, leases and owners
of timber lands.
Whereas this impost has been one
cent per acre per annum under the
forestry legislation of 1912, it will be
one and one half cent in future, the
government continuing to contribute
dollar for dollar.

"Talking of progress, a few years
ago the Haida Indians on the Queen
Charlotte Islands ate their food according to the most primitive fashion. Now
they are to have a restaurant under the
management of one of their, number.
A little later, perhaps, some of the
patrons of the establishment will insist
upon calling it a cafe."

History Of Queen Charlotte Islands.
Haidas and Their Legends.
By Mr. Charles Harrison.
Article XXXII.-—The Creation of The Haidas.
There were formerly twenty-eight
days in each Haida month and thirteen
months or moons in the year. Thirteen
times twenty-eight make three hundred
and sixty four. This difference of one
day they explained by saying that after
the slave had shot three hundred and
sixty-five arrows into the moon, the
first arrow was in reality not to be
counted, but in its stead the day that
was spent by the raven slave in elimb-
ing the ladder of arrows to secure the
heaven-born woman for his v/ife. This
day had to be reckoned at the end of the
thirteenth month, and will then make
their year to correspond with ours. Up
this ladder that he had now made he
climbed and passed unobserved in to the
kingdom of light. Early in the morning of the first day that he arrived there
he saw a daughter of one of the chiefs,
a most beautiful woman, swimming in
a lake of crystal. He stealthily went
around to the side on which she was
likely to step ashore, and awaited her
arrival; She soon came, but no sooner
did she set her foot on the beach than
she was seized by the slave with whom
he dropped into the sea not far from
North Island. The raven happened to
b;o flying near North Island during the
JD uescent of the slave, and noticing some
thing extraordinary in the atmosphere
he watched and at last discovered what
he thought to be two large eagles, were
the slave and this beautiful woman. No
sooner did the slave lead her into his
house than the raven appeared. The
raven demanded that the slave should
give him this beautiful woman, but he
refused to do so. Whereupon the raven
became very angry, took possession of
the woman as his wife, and most unceremoniously changed the slave into a
spirit, and drove him away from him
for ever. He cursed the slave most
bitterly and commanded that he should
be a wandering spirit to look after the
growth of every living thing.
Thus the Wanderer as the slave is
now termed, is always busily engaged
causing the berries and the roots of all
descriptions to grow for the support of
the Haidas. Every plant, every flower,
and every tree are under his control;
and he it is that provides find cedar
trees on the islands, out of which the
natives dig their canoes. The beasts of
the forest, the fish in the sea, and the
birds of the air are under his supreme
control. At the present time he is fulfilling  his destiny,   and  at  times  the
Haidas think with gratitude of his goodwill towards them, and offer him a
sacrifice of berries, roots, salmon and
bear grease. These they put into hollow trees to provide a meal for their
most unfortunate ancestor, should he
require anything to eat. Thus the slave
now wanders upon the face of the earth
both night and day, and must continue
to roam apart from his descendants until the end of all things. At the end of
time when the raven shall become dis-
satisfiedwith the existing state of affairs
he will recall him, and woe to the Haida
when he is recalled; for the trees and
plants, the fish and the animals, the
fowls of tho air, and even their country
will most undoubtedly cease to be, and
then shall the end of the Haidas come.
The ancient Haidas had another terrible
person at times to encounter, a man
devouring being who floated half out of
the water and was seen about once in
every ten or fifteen years, and whose
appearance was a sure sign of disease,
pestilence and death. A few years
after I arrived at Massett this formidable individual, if we may so term him,
was seen some distance from the shore,
and the Haidas were sure that the
terror of the nation had again arrived
to cause them sickness and Oodily harm.
Two white men rowed out to see this
wonderful animal or person and found
that it was only a log. When the
ancient Haidas travelled they thought
continually of the many terrors of the
land and the sea, and the things under
the sea, the tidal waves,' the whirlwind,
the dreaded monsters that the waters
were supposed to contain, the finback
whales, and the great chiefs of seals
and otters ; they also thought of the
eagles and of all their other superstitions. Within the memory of living
man, and even when first I arrived at
Massett, the mountains were first supposed to emit flames and monstruous
shapes, even demons that overwhelmed
the valleys with many shakings of the
ground, and other actions of malignant
beings, and all these wondrous doings
made all the Haidas tremble in the night
watches.
The ancient Haidas could see signs
and portents in the variations of the
sun and moon, and also warnings in the
eclipse. A comet was to them a sure
sign of impending woe and great misery,
so they having implicit confidence in
what they were taught by their devil

Mayor Beckwith of Victoria, who
was elected on an appeal seme weeks
ago, has been unseated. His opponent,
TTr. Morley, had a majority of five
votes, but on appeal Mr. Beckwith was
elected. However, the court of appeal,
composed of Justices Galliher, Macdonald and Irving, declared the election void, and a new election has been
ordered.
doctors made at every camp offerings
to the gods or demons of the woods and
of the deep, and prayed to the high
soaring moon to protect them in their
sleep. The moral code of the ancient
Haidas as far as I have been able to
learn was in some respects most excellent, and these laws were supposed to
have come from the chief of light. The
parents loved their children and the
children were enjoined to love and honor
their parents. ■ The poor and indigent
Haidas had to be respected and helped,
and hospitality was commanded amongst
the adults, and the children were taught
to be unselfish and kind one to another,
or the alternative would be that, when
they died they would have to go and
live in the kingdom of darkness dominated over by Chief Hetgwaulana. I
have oftentimes listened to the advice
given to children by the old Haida men
and women, and they have tried to instil in them the valuable knowledge
that it was better to listen than to
speak in every condition of life, and
that almost every evil and misfortune
came from the man who allowed his
tongue to speak before his mind had
time to think. The old people used to
say that those who caused misfortune
by slander and foolish talk were frequently put to death. As with the souls
in the invisible world so it was with the
Haidas on earth. They imagined it was
right to kill an enemy, but to abuse a
friend without cause or deed was
punished oftentimes with death. All
their laws were supposed to have corne
down to them from the invisible world,
and were brought to their knowledge
by their supposed creator, the raven.
