Gasolene.
Gasolene is a necessity of life on
these islands. Most of the settlers depend on gasolene boats for their supplies, as there are no waggon roads to
speak of. Most of the mines are in
rough country, where roads will never
be built except to the nearest water,
and they must be served by gasolene
boats until they have big shipments of
ore for the steamers. Most of the fishermen have gasolene engines in their
boats, and the rest are planning to put
them in.
It would be very unfortunate for
most of us if the supply of gasolene
should be cut off, even for a month,
and yet that is liable to happen at any
time. None of the steamers running
regularly to the islands are allowed to
bring gasolene.
The remedy for high prices and humiliating conditions is to allow iron-
decked passenger boats to carry small
quantities of gasolene, say ten cases or
a drum, on deck, where it would be no
more dangerous than coal oil. That is
the way things were a year ago; anyone could get gasolene, and prices were
kept down to a fair level. There is
no good reason why this should not be
done again. Everybody on the islands
would sign a petition to have it allowed. The Skidegate Inlet Conservative
Association might take tnis matter up
with the Government, as it affects the
welfare of the islands.

Local News Items.
The ladies of Queen Charlotte are
planning to invite the men to a Leap
Year dance on Saturday evening, April
20, in Barge's hall. It is said that
Miss Atkins will be floor manager, and
Miss Menzies will call off the dances.
We understand that all bachelors are
expected to be chaperoned by respectable married men.   Of course all the
dances  will be "ladies'   choice", and
some of the boys are practising a shy
and retiring manner and a pretty blush
for use on that occasion,  while others
are experimenting with powder puffs,
peroxide and Honey and Almohd cream
The Ladies' Aid society of the Presbyterian church has formed a sewing
circle, meetiug at the homes of the
members every Thursday afternoon.
The ldaies will do fancy work, make
clothes, or darn bachelors' socks to
order, the proceeds goingto the church
building fund. The first meeting was
held last week, Mrs. Campbell being
the hostess.
TOW HILL ITEMS.
At a poll of votes taken at Tow Hill
at the last election, the results were as
follows: out of twenty-one voters,
eighteen voted for William Manson,
one for Alex. Manson, and two did not
vote, being sick. Mr. Spence was deputy returning officer.
A few days prior to the election a
meeting of the settlers was held, to discuss matters of general importance to
the district. Over thirty settlers were
present, twenty of them being on the
voters' list and eight had applied to
have their names put on.
HAIDAS AND THEIR LEGENDS
(Continued from page 1)
shot, but not quite so seldom as at
present, and I have bought several
at prices ranging from $40 to $S0
in jtrade, which cannot at the ipres-
ont kim© be purchased for le»£ thai)
$1,000 or $1,500 cash. These sea
otters were formerly hunted by the
Haidas on the west coast between
Frederick Island and Hippa Island.
The Haidas were formerly accustomed to get very many fur seal, and
the old men as hunters were proficient in saving all they shot, and
in this respect could not be excelled. Formerly none of the Haidas at Masset would go fur seal
hunting until they had shot several
as they were passing up the Inlet
in front of their houses. Now the
fur seal are very rare and the hunting of them a thing of the past. The
Haidas have not even attempted to
hunt them during the past three
years. All these sea animals they
obtained had excellent fur and
brought first-class prices, but the
land animals never commanded as
high a price as those on the mainland . Sea lions are plentiful dm the
west coast of these islands, and the
hair seal are quite comimon, but
their market value is very low, and
'consequently it does not pay to
hunt them.
Geese, ducks and sea fowl of many
kinds have always been utilized as
articles of food by the natives, and
the eggs of sea birds, especially the
eggs of the sea gull, are collected
in large quantities annually. Every
lonely and wave-washed rock and
islet on which the gulls lay their
eggs are known to the Haidas, and
have been apportioned as hereditary
property amongst the different
tribes.
Lastly the mos| interesting animal
that we have on these islands and
the most difficult to obtain is the
oaribou. Many articles have been
written regarding its existence on
Queen Charlotte Islands. Some
have gone so far in their statements
as to deny that any could be found.
The Rev. Canon Keen, who lived in
Masset eight years, says "That from
his own experience and that of the
oldest Indian hunters whom he questioned closely, he is decidedly of the
opinion that no caribo are to be
found in any part of the islands.
Rev. Mr. Collison, who was one of
the earliest missionaries at Masset,
had the same belief as Mr. Keen,
though he did not express such definite conclusions." Mr. Osgood,
when he visited these islands in the
year 1901, says "the description of
a caribou from the Queen Charlotte
Islands was, to say the least, somewhat unexpected, so in visiting the
islands I was particularly interested
in obtaining information in regard
to its existence. I could find no
evidence, however, that native caribou ever existed on any of the islands.'" The reason is quite simple, Mr. Osgood never visited the
part of Graham Island where the
cariobu roam and have their existence. Had he gone north as far as
the district of Naden in the vicinity
of Virago Sound he would have seen
tracks and traces of these animals
that would have convinced him
without any doubt whatsoever of
their existence.
