your letter of the 19th inst., there was
sent to you at the House of Commons
last March for examination a report
from Mr. Phalen regarding two routes
for the proposed Queen Charlotte Island
Hue, and your decision was in favor of
the lower one from Dead Tree Point

Mexican Tom's trail and down the inlet
to Masset Village. An item in pursuance was presented for the Estimates,
$13,750.00, but it did not get through.
I will present it again along with your
letter to be dealt with in connection
with the Estimates for 1913-14.

Cemetery Board Formed
On Tuesday afternoon last a public
meeting was held for the purpose of
forming a cemetery board. Mr. J. L.
Barge read correspondence from Mr.
T. S. Gore of Victoria, on behalf of
the Townsite Co., stating that the
necessary steps would be taken to grant
a deed to a parcel of land lying west of
and adjoining the townsite for cemetery
purposes. A committee consisting of
Messrs. J. L. Barge, D. Cochrane and
H. W. Fairbairn were appointed to act
in having the land surveyed and the
drawing up of rules, which will be discussed at a future meeting. A public
subscription fund netted $40 in cash,
$20 in promises, and $50 in labor and
lumber towards laying out the grounds.

The first shipment of coal from the
mines of the British Pacific Coal Co. at
Slate Chuck to the B. C. Fisheries, Ltd.,
was made on Saturday. The tramway from mine to tidewater, a distance
of one and a half miles, as well as the
wharf have been completed, and the
company are now in shape to do continuous shipping. A boat, we under-
derstand, is waiting for the second shipment of 300 tons, which will be supplied
without delay. The construction work
has been under the supervision of Mr.
Alexander Faulds, M. E.
Local News Items
Mr. P. S. Jack returned Friday from
a trip up the east coast.
W. H. Sochon came in Saturday from
Yakoun Lake.
The steamer British Empire called on
Friday with freight for local merchants.
Messrs. Schug and Hickey brought
back several samples of coal which they
found on the property of F. B. Allard
and associates, on which they were
prospecting. A drill will in all likelihood be boring on this property, which
is only a few miles from Queen Charlotte, at no distant date.
Mr. and Mrs. Geigerich of Cape Ball
were in town this week on a short visit.
Mail was delivered at local points
during the week through the courtesy
of the B. C. Fisheries, Ltd. One of the
trawlers being at Prince Rupert took
the mail over.
Mr. W. J. Smith, proprietor of the
Premier Hotel, and Miss Sarah Menzies
left on Thursday night on the Princess
Ena for Prince Rupert, en route to Victoria, where an interesting ceremony
will take place. The future bride and
bridegroom were given a good send-off.

Premier during Mr. Smith's absence.
Death From Exposure
On Sunday about noon a small row-
boat with two Japanese was found
drifting aimlessly near Skidegate by the
power sloop Haida. When picked up
one of the men was found to be dead
and the other was very nearly so. They
evidently had lost their oars and their
bearings and must have been drifting
about all night. The dead man's name
was Hirayuso. Seto, his companion, is
recovering.
 o	
The Princess Ena arrived last week
at Aliford Bay with machinery for the
fertilizer plant which was shipped from
Germany. She had also two 25 ton
boilers of English manufacture. The
Ena was several days unloading.

LAUNDRY
British Columbia's Progress.
With the exception cf the prairie provinces, there is no part of the Dominion
that is attracting so much attention as
British Columbia. The natural resources of this province are far superior
to those of any country on the face of
the earth. Our climate compares most
favorably with any ; we have fish in the
sea and mineral of all kinds in the
bosom of mother earth. Our farming
lands are capable of supplying millions
with food. Railways are now opening
up hitherto inaccessible regions. Our
timber wealth runs into the hundreds of
millions of dollars. Wages are high,
and mechanics need not worry about
finding employment. There is room for
many thousands of home-seekers in
every quarter of the province for the
best of settlers; but the drones are not
wanted, and the immigration officers
should keep busy, shutting them out
from every door entering the country.
We want immigrants; but of a class
that will do a fair day's work for a fair
day's pay. The loud-mouthed advocate
of rebellion, with his red flag and self-
aggrandizing proclivities, will find few
if any followers, where prosperity
reigns. In every field of endeavour the
hand of fellowship is held out to those
who will "live and let live." When
people come amongst us and desire to
attain their desires in life, let them remember that "there are others," who
have the same rights and privileges that
will not be "bulldozed," or kept from
doing their duty fearlessly and well.
Inferentially dubbing men ingrates and
sattelites, in the press or at public
meetings, only reflects on the heads of
those who live by their wits and are
" scatterbrains " at the best. Such
men retard a country, others looking
upon them askance and declining to
associate with them either in public or
private life. A few of such have attained what they consider prominence
in this country, which is much to be regretted. They go to any extremes to
"down" their imaginary enemies. If
they knew how little thought is given
to their vaporings the time wasted
might be better used in "praying for
their enemies." It is a world of contention we all know ; but the contenders
As the result of a recently published
paragraph, several doctors in the province appear to have awakened to the
fact that some of the small towns where
the resident physician receives a grant
from the Provincial Government might
be desirable places of residence. Numerous enquiries on the subject have been
addressed to Hon. Dr. Young. In each
case the enquirer has been furnished
with the list of places where physicians
are required, giving the population and
other particulars and the amount of the
subvention, generally $300 a year. It
is pointed out, however, that this money
is not paid to anybody on condition of
his going anywhere. He must go there
first and become the resident physician
and then he becomes entitled to the
grant. Queen Charlotte City and district is presently without a doctor and
is one of the most desirable places
that a medical man could come to.
There is a well equipped hospital and
with the various industries opening up
and the increase in population, this district offers one of the best appointments
in the province.

they gradually began to lose confidence
in the abilities of their own doctor and
became more disposed to accept treatment from the white physician, and with
the exception of the very old people all
now are in favor of the white doctor
and his remedies. It was exceedingly
difficult to obtain from the devil doctors
any accurate statement of the nature of
a malady, and their description of the
symptoms of any sickness owing to lack
of knowledge was always of the vaguest
character. Whilst they had definite
names for rheumatism, toothache (this
they sometimes cured by destroying the
nerve with a hot iron or prior to the use
of iron with a piece of sharp pointed
flint), boils and a few other ailments,
but beyond these their description of
cases of serious sickness always resolved
itself into the statement that the patient
was troubled by an evil spirit, wsa under the spell of an enemy, an enemy
had caused something to sprout and
grow in the body of the patient, or unbeknown to the sick man something had
been put into his food by one opposed to
him to cause him to waste away and
die.    Thus no matter what occurred in
the olden days the Sa-ag-ga of the tribe
was always consulted and practically
the destiny of the people was in his
hands, as before the advent of the
whites no one dared to oppose him and
his orders, as all were afraid of the
mystical power which he was supposed
to possess.
