Regina's Disaster     Means Influx Of Capital Annual School Meeting
Many Dead and Injured as Result of
Terrible Cyclone---Property Loss
About Ten Million Dollars.
Dominion Day was a sad holiday for
Regina. Sunday night the city was in
gala attire in anticipation of a day of
pleasure. The morning of the holiday
found a large section of the city in ruins,
many citizens dead, scores in mourning,
hundreds injured, thousands without
homes and practically ruined. It all
came through a terrific cyclone that cut
its path through the city shortly before
five o'clock Sunday evening.
Thirty persons are known to be dead
and the ghastly list may total seventy,
for there are heaps of ruins still un-
searched, and severel patients in the
hospitals suffering from injuries from
which they cannot recover. The injured
number about two hundred, while at
least 3000 persons are without homes.
In the three minutes which the storm
lasted, it levelled at least 500 buildings,
doing damage estimated at ten million
dollars.
Sir Richard McBride, on behalf of
British Columbia, sent a message of
sympathy, and the provincial government donated a sum of $2,000 to the
relief fund.
-o-
Fisherman Drowned.
When a fishing dory from the halibut
steamer Roman capsized off the Queen
Charlotte group recently, as it was
coming alongside the vessel, Carl Ols-
vick of Vancouver was drowned. This
news has just come to hand. The dory
also contained John Morrison, who, with
Olsvick, was out on the banks fishing.
Morrison caught a lifebelt thrown to
him. Second Mate Ulstein of the Roman
dived after Olsvick but was unable to
save him.
Democrats Nominate Woodrow Wilson.
Woodrow Wilson, of New Jersey, was
nominated for president by the Democratic convention at Baltimore. The
nomination was made after Underwood
had withdrawn, Clark had released his
supporters and New York, as a climax,
had moved to suspend the balloting and
make the nomination of Wilson by acclamation. The forty-sixth ballot,
official, gave Wilson 990; Clark 84;
Harmon 12, absent 2. Governor Thos.
R. Marshall, of Indiana, was nominated
for vice-president.
Mr. J. Stark Brown, Director of B. C.
Fisheries, Speaks of Results of Tour
of British Manufacturers.
Among the party of British manufacturers who are touring the Dominion is
Mr. J. Stark Brown, a director of the
British Columbia Fisheries, Limited.
This company owns extensive freehold
lands on Moresby and Graham Islands,
and at Aliford Bay and Skidegate extensive salmon canneries, salteries, cold
storage and fertilizer plants, and oil-
works have been installed. It is intended to extend the scope of the com-,
pany's activities by engaging in deep
sea fishing.
In an interview with a representative
of the Victoria Colonist, Mr. Brown predicted that the present tour would result in much more British capital coming to Canada. Seeing was believing,
and the progress of the Dominion from
coast to coast was so notable that it
could not help but impress the visiting
man of business accustomed to size up
conditions.
 o	
West Coast Oil Fields.
A new driller has been installed at the
plant of the B. C. Oilfields*. After
striking gas and oil at the six huqdred
foot level, it was found that there was
trouble with the piping and it was decided to commence the boring of a new
eight inch hole.
A new Keystone plant will be installed by another company on the west
coast, and active operations will be commenced within thirty days.
 o	
Red Deer Stopped by Cattle Embargo.
The embargo on importations of cattle
from Great Britain, announced from
Ottawa last week, is likely to prevent
British Columbia sportsmen from realizing their hopes of having the red deer
of Scotland imported into the province.
All arrangements had been made by the
provincial game warden for the shipment of two herds of red deer in September to the provincial farm at Co-
quitlam to be acclimatised before turning them loose on the Queen Charlotte
Islands. The announcement of the embargo on cattle is likely, however, to
cancel all the arrangements.
J. F. Macdonald, Dominion constable
for the Islands, arrived here last Monday and visited all the settlements in
the district during the week.
 o	
F. C. Tingley intends starting up his
saw mill plant on Massett Inlet in a
few days. On the next trip of the
Prince John a large steam engine will
be delivered and as soon as it is installed
the plant will be in shape to cut logs.
The settlers and others|will then be able
to procure their lumber at home instead
of having it to be shipped in.
The annual meeting of the Queen
Charlotte School District was held on
Saturday forenoon in the school-room.
Trustee J. M. Campbell was appointed
chairman, and Trustee J. L. Barge as
secretary. The secretary read the
minutes of the last annual meeting
which were approved. He also gave a
financial report for the past year, showing the source of income and the expenditure, and certified correct by the
auditor, Mr. G. D. Beattie. On motion
of Mr. C. Johnstone, seconded by Mr.
W. H. Fairbairn, the report was adopted. It was agreed to raise the sum of
$1,000 for the current eighteen months
for school purposes, and acquiring an
adjoining lot. The Provincial Government has so far kindly supplied the
funds necessary for the upkeep of the
school and supplying a teacher, until an
assesstment roll for the district has
been made up.
Mr. E. Girard was unanimously elected
a trustee for the next three years in
place of Mr. N. Fraser, and Mr. G. D.
was re-elected auditor.
 _o	
Miss H. Atkins, who recently resigned
her appointment as teacher of the Queen
Charlotte school, left last Monday for
her home at Burquitlam. Miss Atkins
was quite a favorite with the children
and others and her departure is very
much regretted. A large number of
the school children and friends gathered
at the wharf to wish her good-bye.
O. E. Oliver, of Hedley, was among
the arrivals on the "John" last week
and proceeded up country to join Green's
survey party at Oyanda river.
A large sale of totem poles and Indian
curios resulted this week through the
visit of Mr Thos. Deasy, Indian agent,
who bought the whole of G. D. Beattie's
stock for $300. Mr. Deasy intends to
have the finest and largest collection of
Indian curios known.
Mrs. D. Cochrane and baby left on the
"John " last Monday on a visit to her
parents at Ladysmith.
The Edrie returned to Aliford Bay on
Tuesday with bait for the Fisheries Co.
The farm at Sandspit, owned by E.
Stevens, is likely to become a summer
resort. An offer has been made to purchase the property by parties resident
on Vancouver island.
B. J. Russell, teacher of the Skidegate Indian School, has resigned.
James Jones, a local fisherman, returned to Aliford Bay on Thursday from
Gold Harbor with one hundred black cod
and 500 pounds of halibut, the result of
one day's fishing.
Mr. Wills, of the Victoria Times editorial staff, made the round trip last
week on the "John" and as a result
the islands will likely have a boost from
his pen in that journal shortly.

Several Reasons.
We met a pre-emptor a few days ago
and asked his reasons for leaving Alberta
and settling on Graham Island. He
answered quite promptly: "Itwas not
so much the cold of winter, as the summer frosts, that made me turn to a
country like this. I have a homestead
in Alberta and it is becoming valuable.
Three railroads run near my place there;
but I will sell out and make my permanent home on Graham Island. I took
up a pre-emption and have an acre near
one of the settlements, to send my
children to school. The land is good ;
but it will take some clearing. With a
few acres in a country like this any man
can make a good living. You need little
feed for the cattle, can raise chickens,
and there is a market for garden produce right on the islands without going
even to Prince Rupert to sell." There
it is—all in a nutshell. This man desires
to get away from the frost and to live
in a country where he can make a good
living without the discomforts of the
prairies. It means a few years of hard
work clearing the land; but life is too
short for men to work from daylight to
dark and find the result of their labor
tied up with frosts and snow, without
considering that there is no outlet for
their produce, no matter what quantity
one might raise. This pre-emptor feels
that it is preferable to have a few acres
in this country, with the climate so
favorable that work can be done all of
the year round, to hundreds of acres of
prairie land with the cold winter and
danger from summer frosts. There is
a market for everything he can raise
here, and the wonder is that so few are
clearing their land, knowing that a comfortable living can be made from ten
acres. With eggs at fifty cents per
dozen; butter at forty cents a pound;
potatoes from two to three dollar per
hundredweight, and the price of other
produce in proportion, there is every
opportunity for the right kind of settlers
on our islands.
Chicago was the scene of onslaughts
which almost ended in free fights, and
the end is not yet. The political game,
rooted in machine rule, is rushing the
nation headlong to a change, which will
mean the cleaning out of those who control the system, under which such glaring shortcomings are causing a state of
affairs that will only end in serious
trouble unless averted by those who
have the power—the voters of the
country. We, residents of the neighboring Dominion, have cause to feel proud
of our responsible government, under
which every man may become a candidate for the highest office, without the
manipulation of machines, road rollers,
or combines, which, through self-aggrandisement, attempt to hold up and
retard individuals and communities.

Capt. Wearmouth Exonerated
Marine Department Advises That Formal Investigation of Prince John is Unnecessary.
Advices have been received from Ottawa by Capt. James Gaudin, commissioner of wrecks, that Capt. Wearmouth,
of the G. T. P. steamer Prince John,
has been exonerated from blame on
account of the stranding of the steamer
recently at Massett. A preliminary
inquiry was held in Victoria a few weeks
ago by Capt. Eddie, and the evidence
was forwarded to Ottawa. Capt. Gaudin
was advised by the department of marine that it did not consider Capt. Wearmouth could be held responsible for the
stranding and that it was not considered
necessary to hold a formal investigation.
 o	
Indian Agent Deasy On Visit.
Mr. Thomas Deasy, Indian agent for
the Queen Charlotte Islands, with headquarters at Massett, arrived Monday
last on a visit to Skidegate Indian reserve on business in connection with his
department. A Council meeting was
held Wednesday night when some important matters were attended to. Mr.
Deasy reports quite a lot of settlers
going in at the north end of the island
and that much development work is in
progress at Tow Hill, Naden Harbor,
Queenstown and other points on Massett Inlet. He left on Thursday for
Massett, going overland via the East
coast road, a tramp of over one hundred
miles.

It must be apparent to every disinterested individual that the squabbling now
going on in the United States over the
nomination of a President, is unseemly
and to be regretted. We have the former
head of that nation and the present
occupant of the office, lowering, not
only themselves, but the dignity that
should attach to so elevated a position,
by indulging in language that is heard
in the slums, in an eadeavour to belittle
one another in the eyes of the electors.
