Diamond Drill Coming.     Local News Items      Graham Island Notes.
Information is just to hand that a
diamond drill will arrive here on the
steamer due on Tuesday morning from
Vancouver. Mr. Girard has received
instructions to have scows ready to
meet the boat so that the drill and
equipment may be moved to the place
of operation without delay. Some time
ago Mr. F. C. Greene, M.E., of Vancouver, made a thorough examination
of the coal measures in Skidegate Inlet
for Vancouver capitalist, who held a
large number of coal licenses, and we
understand that on his recommendation
a number of the licenses were dropped
and the most likely ones kept. The
property selected by Mr. Greene includes
portions of Lena and Maude Islands and
several claims at Nose Point. Messrs.
A. J. Gordon and W. J. Leary were the
original locators of the property. The
transportation of the drill and machinery
to the scene of operations is in charge
of Mr. Walter Dass, who will arrive
with it on Tuesday.
 o	
0. P. Gill, better known on the islands
under the sobriquet of "soapy," has
many sterling qualities, but his friends
consider that as a cook he can't be
beat. He entertained a '' select party''
to a chicken dinner the other evening,
and the manner in which they cleaned
'jp the eatables was excellent proof of
Mr. Gill's efficiency as a culinary artist.

QUEEN CHARLOTTE, B.C.
Chas. Hartie and Ed. Hall were out
on the west coast for several days during the   week for yellow cedar logs.
Provincial Constable Petrie S. Jack,
of Queen Charlotte, has been appointed
a deputy mining recorder for the Queen
Charlotte Islands.
The grant from the Provincial Government to the Queen Charlotte City Hospital has been increased from $300 to
$500 per annum.
The B. C. Fisheries trawler Triumph
left on Thursday morning for Vancouver
and Victoria with a large consignment
of salmon and 100 barrels of oil. After
discharging cargo the Triumph will be
fitted out at Victoria as a hand line
boat for halibut fishing.
Large forces of men at Aliford Bay
are busy laying sidewalks, improving
the water supply, overhauling the cannery and engine house, and generally
getting things in shape for the approaching fishing season.
H. H. Cullis was a passenger on the
Triumph for a month's vacation in the
south. Our Aliford Bay correspondent
says Mr. Cullis is at present in the pink
of condition, and it is to be hoped he
will look as well on his return.
R. W. Hornsby, one of Aliford Bay's
popular young men, who was engaged
as an engineer on the construction of
the fertilizer, left for Victoria on the
Triumph on Thursday.
Dr. Wright spent Tuesday at Aliford
Bay and Wednesday at Skidegate.
Mr. E. Cater, of Vancouver, has taken
the position on the "News," formerly
held by F. J. Smythe.
As the days increase in length an in-
dustrions gardener can do half a day's
work before a late breakfast.
D. A. Mcphee went south to Victoria
on Thursday. He expects to be baek
soon and during the summer will have a
party engaged cruising timber.
Mr. Robert R. Hedley, M.E., of Vancouver, is expected shortly on a visit to
Moresby Island, where he will examine
several mining properties. Mr. Hedley
vitited Tassoo several months ago, but
owing to bad weather was not able to
accomplish very much work.
A jolly birthday party was held on
Wednesday afternoon, when Miss Lilly
Scowcroft had the pleasure of enter-
taing her schoolmates at her mother's
residence. The youngsters enjoyed
themselves thoroughly and in the evening the grown-ups got a look in.
The new service of the G. T. P. boats
to the Islands commences this week and
the first steamer is due Tuesday morning from Vancouver and way ports.
The following week and during the
summer two boat will arrive, one going
south to Vancouver on Sundays, and the
other coming north on Tuesdays to
Prince Rupert.
The steamer Thomas Carruthers, with
a representative of one of the large cold
storage plants, called at Masset recently, where the Indians were interviewed
with regard to fishing during the coming spring.
i Rev. Father McDonald, of Woden
River, held the first Mass in the Masset
schoolhouse, where a number of members of the Catholic congregation were
in attendance. It is the intention to
construct several chapels on the island
for places of worship.
Active operations will soon commence
in the way of surveying, opening up
the coal measures, and fishing. The
sawmill at Sewell City is cutting lumber ; roads are being built at the new
townsite and a number of new residents
are taking up land near Queenstown.
There are four prospective towns now
on the market, and it is expected that
a large increase in the population will
take place this year.
Several Indians are placing gasoline
engines in their boats. Thomas Nut-
comb will instal a twenty-four horse
power engine. Robert Stanley has
placed an engine in his launch and a
number of new engines have been
ordered. Ten fishing boats have been
built by the Indians and were all sold
recently. The natives expect to commence fishing for spring salmon this
month.
A dyke will be constructed at Delkat-
la which will open up for cultivation
five hundred acres of good land. The
dyke will be placed on what is known as
Delkatla Slough and will be quite an
undertaking. Mr. Dollemeyer, the
owner of Massett townsite, will construct the dyke.
A new set of instruments for the
Massett brass band arrived recently.
The Indians have a number of good
musicians, and under the leadership of
Alfred Adams, will at once take up the
formation of a band.
Oceans Falls Lumber Co.
Mr. Fred Terry Satterford, representing the Ocean Falls Lumber Co., is here
on business and is a guest at the Premier
Hotel. By the new service of the G.
T. P. steamers, which call at Ocean
Falls both ways, this company can ship
lumber supplies direct to the Islands at
short notice. They are paying attention
to the northern trade and canneries and
other concerns can now be supplied with
boxes, shingles, mouldings, lath, and
lumber. Mr. A. J. Burroughs, is the
Prince Rupert agent.

A number of Indians are engaged
at Skidegate getting gear in shape for
dog-fishing.

Our Land Policy.
It must be evident to all far-seeing
people that there must be a change, and
a radical one at that, in the manner of
dealing with the lands of this Province.
As stated by the Hon. Mr. Ross, Minister of Lands, at the recent meeting of
the Legislature, the amendments introduced may be again amended, to meet
the requirements of the Province.     If
we take the  Queen Charlotte Islands,
and the farming land thereon, it  must
be apparent to anyone that we now have
no extensive farms.     The land is here,
and prolific land at that; but it must be
cleared, and the pre-emptor can hardly
be expected to do this without financial
assistance.    If a man clears two acres
in a year, he is accomplishing  a  great
deal.   Cutting down trees and extracting the stumps is work that few care to
tackle, and can't be done without help.
The peat land must be drained, and this
is also quite a task.     If we ever have
open farms of  any extent it will take
time and money to accomplish anything
that will prove remunerative, and it
would be as well for the government to
understand   that the owners ©f  preemptions on our islands cannot do the
work without assistance.   They cannot
go to loan companies and mortgage the
land they do not own.    Every acre they
clear is an asset to the country, and
they should be assisted.     If an acre of
cleared land on the islands is worth two
hundred dollars,   the government can
afford to loan that amount to the  pre-
emptor, and is sure of being recouped,
or no Crown grant is issued.  The timber
and coal locators are contributing quite
a revenue to the province for the timber
and coal they are not doing anything
with.     We should have the benefit of
the contribution, over and above the
expenditure   required   to   govern   our
section of the province, to aid the man
who is willing to give time and work to
make a permanent improvement and a
revenue producer, in the way of a farm.
The amount needed will not neccessarily
be large.   The coal and timber men are
able to care for their own interests.
Pre-emptors are not, usually, rich men,
and most of them desire to bring in
families.     They become the  backbone
of a country, and deserve recognition.
At the present time other countries are
seeking farmers, offering them every
inducement to locate. We require a
large number and it is plain that many
desire to enjoy the climatic conditions
and freedom from the drawbacks encountered elsewhere. Granting of 160
acres, with the proviso that five acres
must be cleared and under cultivation,
is not much of an improvement on the
old order of things, so far as the islands
are concerned. The building of houses
and other expenses, added to the clearing of land, means that each pre-emptor
must start with capital. It would be
far better to loan the pre-emptor money,
to be repaid, than to have them away
from their holdings doing road work.
In the one case, the pre-emptor would
be doing something for himself the whole
year round; in the other case, he is
working on the roads at the time when
the long days would mean so much on a
farm. With cattle, poultry, hogs and
other live stock on his hands, the pre-
emptor, working on the roads must
neglect his pre-emption, and how he can
be expected to clear five acres and have
them under cultivation in three years
while %,way doing other work is beyond
comprehension. Such an amendment
to the land laws may be beneficial in
places where land is comparatively clear;
but there is a doubt of it working to the
advantage of any party concerned on
our islands, without the government
aiding the settler. The reasons for
government aid will be understood when
we state that the C. P. R. is offering
the following inducements,, to locators
along the line of railway: "We will
lend you $2,000 for improvements, with
twenty years in which to repay, at six
per cent. If you do not want to wait
select one of our ready-made farms—
with buildings complete, land cultivated
and in crop, and pay for it in twenty
years."

vicinity he determined to migrate once
more. This time he went ten miles
further along the north beach to a place
called at the present day Yakan Point.
When he tried to force his way through
Delkatla to the ocean and found that he
could not do so, in retracing his steps
he made what is now known as Delkatla Slough, and left the big rocks and
stones behind him that are to be seen
to the present day. As in Delkatla so
at Chouan he left immense rocks behind
him in his displeasure, and these rocks
are to be seen at Chouan Point even
now. At Yakan Point he had more
success and enjoyed himself better than
he had ever done before as there were
immense shoals of dog-fish in the water
between Rose Spit and where he had
located. He was able without difficulty
to get all that he required and had time
to look over the country thoroughly.
In doing so he determined that where
he is seen now was the most suitable
location for any hill of his dimensions,
so he accordinlv left Yakan Point and
went to his present location and there
he has camped ever since, being fully
satisfied with the swarms of dog-fish
mat. periodically visit the waters in
front of him, and with the excellent
shelter he has obtained.
