raised in its place at 9 in the morning.
The actual surrender took place five

press bureau is unable to confirm the
foregoing. A telegram from the Rotterdam correspondent says that a more
hopeful view prevails regarding Antwerp. Refugees from the city declare
that not a single German soldier has
yet entered  Antwerp.     The   Belgian
minister is unable to confirm the fall
of Antwerp. (The foregoing is an
earlier despatch. There is no doubt
about the surrender.)
 o

Galiano Island arrived on the Prince
John on Tuesday to locate on the west
side of the inlet. Mr. Hinton brought
in a big bunch of live stock and supplies.
He was accompanied by Mr. Wade.
All of the Indians are still at the
rivers on the island preparing their
winder supply of food. They report a
large run of cohoe, humpback and dog
salmon. This year the Indians are
putting up an extra supply of fish, on
which they will principally exist, and
i they are making preparations to meet
the hard times by having a stock on
1 hand for emergencies.
J. C. A. Long, B. C. L. S., returned
this morning from the Yakoun River
district, where he has a survey party
engaged on  government work.    The
party will only be a few more days in
the field,   orders   being  received   to
suspend operations for the season.
G. H. Gower, district inspector of
schools, with headquarters at Prince
Rupert, arrived in Massett Tuesday,
coming overland from Queen Charlotte
City. Mr. Gower visited the schools at
Port Clements, Woden River and Massett and was well pleased with the work
and attendance. A request has been
made for a school at Graham Centre
and the inspector was instructed to
make inquiries*and report to the department.
Despite a bad spell of heavy weather
at the opening of the season whaling
off the British Columbia coast during
1914 has produced better results than
last year. The latest information
forthcoming form the Queen Charlotte
Islands stations shows that the little
steamers have done fairly well. It is
reported that up to ten days ago the
whaler Blue, Capt. J. Anderson,* had
taken 66 mammals, and that the whaler
White, Capt J. Christian, had harpeoned
57 of the largest creatures in the Pacific
ocean.
Capt.  Perry and Arthur Robertson
left for the west coast on Wednesday.
Chas. Harrison and W. E. Wanless

to the fleet of gasoline launches on
Massett Inlet by the purchase of a boat
from Thomas Pollock, of Skidegate.
C. Stone, of Woden River, who has
been with F. Nash's survey party at the
south end of the island all summer, returned on Monday, coming over the
trail.
The power launch Venus, Capt. Alex.
Yaltatze, arrived Thursday from Sulzer,
Alaska. She brought home a number
of Massett Indians from the fishing
grounds there, who report that the
run of fish was very poor.
There once was a Kaiser from Kiel,
Who peddled an awful war spiel,
On a Tango dance
He went to J ranee
And came back to look for a meal.
—Chas. M. Wilson.
Word was received last night that
the steamer Prince John had met with
an accident while on the return trip to
Prince Rupert from the southern end of
the islands. She was due at Massett
tomorrow but in consequence of the accident has gone south for repairs.
. C. D. Emmons, M.E., returned this
morning from a trip to Camp Wilson
and Hidden Creek. ' Mr. Emmons said
that the quality of the coal at Camp
Wilson could not be equalled in North
America and that he was sure there
was sufficient to make Graham Island
the supply point of the north.
Mr. Wm. J. Leary of Hydah and
Mattock Bros, of Lena Island, are to
be congratulated on securing such an
array of prizes at the Prince Rupert
fair. Considering that their exhibits
were shipped nearly a week before the
opening of the fair and placed them in
an unfair advantage than those from
other districts, it speaks well for the
quality of vegetables grown on the
Queen Charlottes.
District Exhibit Won
By Graham Island
Skidegate and Lawn Hill Capture Cup
for Second Time at Prince Rupert
Exhibition.
C. Richardson, of Lawn Hill, is a
happy man today. He represents a
combination exhibit from Lawn Hill
and Skidegate on the South end of
Queen Charlotte Islands and his exhibit pulled down first prize for the best
district collection. The prize is a $50
cup and since this is the second time
they have won it, according to the
terms hereof, they own it. A diploma also goes with  the prize.
This is certainly a fine boost for the
south end of the Queen Charlotte Islands. That district is perhaps not so
well known as others around here but
in soil and climate it is very near perfect and anyone examining the products
they grow there will realize that there
is a great future before it. There are
already a large number of settlers
there and the Government has established an experimental farm. All that
the district requires is better transportation to make it the garden of the
Pacific—Prince Rupert Daily News.

Massett, B.C., Saturday, Oct. 10,1914
The strenuous times we are now experiencing will bring forth economic,
social and religious problems which will
have to be solved in a different manner
from the way our forefathers handled
such weighty questions. It is apparent
that the old way of meeting the problems of life is fated to go down in history with the record of past ages and
be supplanted by new methods and ideas
that will appeal to the masses as well
as the classes. Diversity of opinion on
all matters of Church and State will,
undoubtedly continue, although diametrically opposed to the original teachings
of the bible and the master minds of
all ages. Governments will topple and
fall with vanished hopes and lost causes
and proof will be forthcoming that militarism has no place in the adjustment
of territorial right or in bettering the
condition of the wage-earner. The
lessons of Solomon and the greatness of
that wise man brought only to his lips
the words: " Vanity of vanities—all is
vanity." Alexander conquered the
whole world and yet he failed in conquering the greatest man then living—
himself. Kaiser William, inflated with
pride, is endeavoring to repeat history
of the two great men, regardless of the
rights of others, and forgetting that:
"The drying of a single tear hath more
Of honest fame than shedding tons of
gore.''
The sad awakening in this twentieth
century will mean hundreds of thousands of desolate homes. Trade and
commerce of the whole world has been
paralyzed. The trust once reposed in
the integrity of governments has
vanished. Fire and the sword are the
predominent factors in settling the disputes of nations:
"Once   more with   blood  the   storied
rivers thicken,
Once more rude cannons shame   the
lowly plow,
And once again must smaller crowns
be stricken
To clear the way for one who here and
now
Decrees to test imperious will and power.
Where Ceaser fought,   where rushed
Napoleon's legions;
Where Bismarck's stubborn plans hurled
conq'ring legions;
Where art was shrined to bless all distant regions-
There strides some lord on pyramids of
slain
To flaunt triumphant crest for blood
stained hour."

Suspended By Court
Wreck of Prince Albert Held Due to
Negligence of J. J. Flood who
was on Bridge.
The decision of the marine court of
inquiry into the wreck of the Prince
Albert, of the G. T. P. steamship fleet,
is that the cause of the wreck was the
negligence of the officer in charge of
the vessel at the time, J. J. Flood, and
his certificate of competency as master
of a passenger steamer in the coasting
trade is suspended for three months.
That Captain Duncan McKenzie,
master of the vessel, was justified in
retiring to his cabin after having been
on duty for a considerable time, considering the state of the weather, the
time of day and the distance to be run
after passing Rose Spit is the opinion
of the court, but he is nevertheless severely reprimanded for not leaving definite instructions to be called at some
specified time before Brown Passage
was reached. In view of his long and
splendid record the court returned to
him his certificate. The court was
unanimous in its findings.
It was held by the court that the evidence, which was found satisfactory all
through, showed that Flood was lacking in a sense of his responsibility, inasmuch as he must have known that
he was in a dangerous locality; that he
trusted too implicitly in what appeared
to have been the custom, the registering by the log of a distance of
forty-five miles, without considering
the conditions of fog, tide, wind and
sea; that the steamer was driven at
full speed and went on in the midst of
a group of small islets and roeks three
miles in area, showing that she must
have run though kelp and close te sunken
visible dangers for some distance before
she struck the rock on which she now
lies; that in spite of its being foggy
and in utter disregard of the Grand
Trunk Pacific company's regulations
and customary instructions to call the
captain, Flood had failed to inform Captain McKenzie of the weather conditions until practically one minute before the steamer struck ; that the fact
of the light on Triple island, ordinarily visible for twelve miles, not being
seen should alone have been warning
that either it was not burning or that
it was inveloped in a bank of fog, in
which case the captain should have
been notified when the light was not
picked up in a reasonable time
The court found that after the accident everything was done that seamen could do for the preservation of
life and property, and the discipline
maintain was perfect.

Synopsis of Coal Mining Regulations
/^OAL mining rights of the Dominion
^ in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and
Alberta, the Yukon Territory, the Northwest Territories and in a portion of the
Province of British Columbia, may be
leased for a term of twenty-one years
at an annual rental of $1 an acre. Not
more than 2,560 acres will be leased to
one applicant.
Application for a lease must be made
by the applicant in person to the Agent
or Sub-Agent of the district in which the
rights applied for are situated.
In surveyed territory the land must
be described by sections, or legal subdivisions of sections, and in unsurveyed
territery the tract applied for shall be
staked out by the applicant himself.
Each application must be accompanied
by a fee of $5 which will be refunded if
the rights applied for are not available,
but not otherwise. A royalty shall be
paid on the merchantable output of the
mine at the rate of five cents per ton.
The person operating the mine shall
furnish the Agent with sworn returns
accounting for the full quantity of
merchantable coal mined and pay the
royalty thereon. If the coal mining
rights are not being operated, such returns should be furnished at least once
a year.
The lease will include the coal mining
rights only, but the lessee may be permitted to purchase whatever available
surface rights may be considered necessary for the working of the mine at the
rate of $10.00 an acre.
For full information application should
be made to the Secretary of the Department of the Interior, Ottawa, or to any
Agent or Sub-Agent of Dominion Lands.

What's the matter with you
Pessimists?
m
If you knew as much as I do about the future of Delkatlah Bay
you would be chasing me up with payments on your lots.
The farming may be a little slow in developing, and the coal seams
hard to trace in paying quantities, but Delkatlah is on the eve of development as a Winter Tourist Resort which will place it only second to Prince
Rupert in Northern British Columbia.
I am not a prophet, for such prophecy only requires the application of
ordinary common sense. »
Buying lots in Delkatlah is like sowing seed—the money disappears like
the seed in the ground only to spring up and yield ten fold.
Canada needs no summer resort, it has all the summer climate it wants, »
but from Nova Scotia to the Rockies it needs a winter climate, and that's
what we have. The Spring is the time to sow seed. Sow yourwages in a
lot at the rate of $5.00 a month and have a home in town.
Immediately back of Delkatlah pre-emptions are being taken up at the
rate of ten a week.   That will soon increase values.
