C. de L's Answer To Municipal Leary.
Unavoidable delays made impossible
an earlier acknowledgement of your
letter in The Islander's issue of the
17th of December.
'Twas much as the prematurity of a
municipal administration is patent to all;
inasmuch as you have failed to produce
a genuine argument to the contrary, and
insofar as your desultory advocacy has
but covered this really important issue
with ridicule, I think its further consideration futile and unnecessary.
But your indictments of the McBride
administration and incidentally of myself, I shall briefly consider in their
various counts.
To your contention that municipal
elections would represent minorities
hitherto unrepresented, I beg to demur. Under the Act they would not.
Minorities, whether Socialistic or Liberal, are ruled out by the majority's
choice, whether the elections be Dominion, Provincial or Municipal. Under the
present system of election you cannot
eliminate the dissenting minorities;
circumstances but alter their character.
Your derogation of my quotation, because taken from the Chicago press,
cheapens but the dignity of your own
reasoning. The authority I quote is
above rural ridicule and contumely. It
is no less than W. E. Eggleston, a Cal-
ifornian economic student of international repute.
I further beg to differ with the conclusions you draw from the Tow Hill
incident. I hold no brief for McBride,
and he needs here no plea. The very
harshnesB of your criticism robs it of
any weight it migh have had. Though
the incident in question is deeply regrettable, it is but childishly narrow to
hold a member or an administration
directly responsible for the blunders of
its petty henchmen and rat-hole, would-
be politicians..
Of  the  same  character   are   your
criticisms of the Provincial deficit and
the million and a half dollar loan covering it. The administration's action is
justifiable and sound, and the smallness
of the deficit is not only to be wondered
at but by many it is deplored. For insofar as the capital borrowed at reasonable rates of interest, is intended for
permanent, constructive development
and its incidentals, the Province would
be justified in borrowing not a million
but fifty. Is it not plain to any one who
thinks that the moneys so spent benefit
the future as much and more than ourselves, and that when such debentures
are covered by long term bonds the
future but pays for value received.
For your facetious paternalism, your
no doubt well meant advice, Sir, I thank
you. But cold reasoning, clear logic,
facts, figures and local data were what
we wanted and would welcome. Demagogic hyperboles—in colloquial english:
hot air—are too common in this our
land. We want facts and we want
truth, and we take it neat.
To your indictments of cynicism and
lack of faith I shall in part plead guilty
—But, tread only today. Speaking of
the plain folk the great Lincoln said:
" We do not stay fooled, but we can be
fooled for a time." Evert he, one of
the noblest minds of the century, had
grown wary of human nature.
We all carry, sacred within ourselves,
the idealistic faith, the love and fellowship of our mother's inheritance. But
in the course of human relationship we
have learned bitter things. We know
that truth courts inquiry, that faith
loves light. Men, if they be men, give
their faith readily, " whole souledly "—
but they give it clear eyed. You quote
me Kipling, Sir; perhsps you remember
his lines:
"And little folk of little souls
Rose up to buy and sell again."

In a few short months the Grand
Trunk Pacific Railway will be completed'
from ocean to ocean, and there is the
possibility that the owners will be constructing hotels and building steamships
and other means of inducing travel.
Tourists will go where they can obtain
health and recreation, and we direct the
attention of those interested to Graham
Island as a most suitable place for a
health resort. In no part of the world
can be found the water-ways, sandy
beaches, automobile drives, shooting,
fishing, boating, camping grounds and
ideal spots that we boast of on the
Queen Charlotte group. With a climate
that is health-giving, long summer days,
lack of snow and frost in winter and
heat in summer that we read of in the
Eastern portions of the Dominion, there
is a bright future ahead of the islands,
and there is no reason why the people
interested in bringing tourists to this
country should not look over the ground
for a suitable place for such a resort,
where tourists might come in thousands
for recreation and rest. Our halibut
and salmon fishing grounds alone should
command their attention. When the
great English writer, Mr. Seton Ker,
was here he stated that he never saw
such a beautiful country in all of his
travels,|and he has travelled extensively.
We are not boosting or booming when
we state that the health-giving qualities
of the woodland and waters need only be
experienced to be realized. Other resorts may have their beautiful natural
surroundings; but where are the enchanting and varied works of nature in
more profusion than in this part of the
world ? It is an undiscovered land at
the present time, peopled by several
hundreds of pioneers. In the near
future, however, we predict that the
Islands will receive a great deal of
publicity and attention from the Grand
Trunk officials. At present they have
not sufficient steamers to take care of
the freight and passenger traffic on the
Pacific Coast. With the completion of
the transcontinental railway more
steamers will be required. In another
article in this issue Captain Nicholson
referred in an interview to the growth
of the islands and the necessity of a
better steamer service. This is coming
and after this month we can say good-
by to the fortnightly service.** The evergreen Sentinel Islands of the Pacific
will soon be known and recognized as
the ideal beauty-spot of the North
^merican continent.

WODEN
A meeting of the Conservative Association was held here on the 5th inst.
The meeting was called to order by
vice-president J. Irwin at 8 p.m., with
about thirty members present. Secretary Alan Jessup read the minutes of
the previous meeting, which were
adopted as read. The meeting was
noted less for oratory than for good
common sense. Several very important
matters were discussed, viz., the building of a wharf at Woden this season ;
an experimental farm at this end of the
island ; plank roads, etc.
Mr. John Abrahamson, who is well
known as an expert boat-builder, has
laid the keel of a new model fishing-boat
at Hazelton & Campbell's boat-house,
which promises to be the popular model
for 1914.
Messrs. R. Rupe and Paul Browas arrived home from Queenstown on their
fast power sloop "Sunflower." The
fact that they have not changed her
name means the engine is running
better of late.
Hazelton Bros, have just completed
an automatic feed shingle saving device
in connection with their band-saw, and
are now turning out shingles that compare favorably with the product of any
on the coast.
Mr. William Hudson of Holland Mountain, who is busy at present moving his
residence to a more attractive location,
seems te be credited by his neighbors
with owning a house that has gone crazy
with the heat, as each day it points in a
different direction. We don't know
where you are going William, but you
sure are on your way.
Messrs. Geduhn and Holland, accompanied by their families, made a tour of
the Echo Lake district on Sunday last
and pronounced themselves very much
surprised at the wonderful improvements there in the past season, not the
least attractive of which was Mr. G. J.
Campbell's new log villa, which reflects
much credit both on the designer and
the workmen who built it.
Mr. and Mrs. A. McCall, Mr. and Mrs.

Hazelton and Mrs. Campbell were visitors at Echo Lake on Sunday.

The "Salal" Question.
Editor   Islander:—The    interesting
letter of W. G. Carr on the question of
"salal" should settle, for all time, the
feeding of the eattle on the island.    If
the potato was once an "Irish flower"
grown in the gardens, we should place
"salal" on the clearings, or, better
still, make a "climbing plant" of it
for our houses and barns.    Wonderful
to relate, there are acres of it along the
roads, and the 15th February, when Mr.
Carr examined a wild bull's stomach,
was not the proper time to tell whether
the animal preferred the  "salal" before green grass or clover.    How the
cattle thrive on " salal" which is green
during the whole winter, can  best be
understood by watching the cattle take
to the beach, where they eat sea-grass.
If "salal" is good food, what use for
importing hay and ether provender during the winter?     We have  "salal"
with us all the year round, and how
cattle can find their way through thick
"salal," is beyond my comprehension.
Experience is a good teacher, and, if
Mr. Carr has any respect for his stock,
he will not feed them on "salal."  It is
the cause of constipation in cattle, and
that is certainly not for their benefit.
He is right in stating that imported
cattle will pass the salal up as a flower
or a weed.    We all know that eattle
will eat almost anything during a hard
winter; they will pick up spruce, cedar
and anything to keep life in them.   An
animal knows what is good food, just as
well as we do; but my advice is not to
stock up on "salal."   When cattle will
not take to a diet on salal it should be
proof that it is not beneficial.  I did not
state that cattle eat it because they
like it; on the contrary, I state that
they will not eat it unless driven to eat L
anything in sight, and although not con-  ^
versant with the habits of wild cattle, I
know that newly imported stock died
from eating it when they had no other
food to subsist on.  Every settler should
provide for the winter with good hay,
no matter whether  we have a  mild
climate.    We do no know when a hard
winter will come, as it is showing in the
South this year.   At any rate, I would
advise people not to depend on salal for
winter feed for cattle, Mr. Carr, notwithstanding. Old Timer.
