V
Committees Appointed
For Dominion Day
A meeting was held in the School
House at Massett on the evening of
the 25th inst., with Mr. J. M. Campbell
in the chair, to make arrangements for
the annual Celebration at Massett on
July lst. Owing to the short notice
given the attendance from outside
points was small, but it was felt and
hoped that all the different centres
would heartily co-operate to ensure a
good time for all, young and old, on
Canada's special day of rejoicing. The
following committees were appointed
to act and empowered to add to their
numbers as they saw fit:
Entertainment and Sports—Messrs.
Richards, Orr, Batchelor, McGregor,
Dr. Graves, W.'J. Hughes, J. McMullen,
C. Cornie, W. Graef and Thos. Deasy.
Finance—Messrs. Martin (chairman),
S. Ives, Kennedy, Wanless, Wilson,
Campbell, Spence, Hicks, Robertson,
Gauld and Baker.
Mr. Charles Harrison was unanimously appointed chairman ex-officio
of all committees and A. E. Jessup
general secretary.
Arrangements will be made so that
people will be able to attend from all
outside points.
Proposed Excursion to Massett.
During the visit of General-agent A.
Davidson, of the G.T.P. Company, this
week a suggestion was made of an excursion from Prince Rupert to Massett.
He was .favorable to the idea and
stated that he would be pleased to consider the question. We would direct
the attention of the Committee to this
matter and call attention to the fact
that the lst July falls on Wednesday.
Would it not be advisable to have the
Company alter the date of arriving
one day, give a rednced rate and allow
the excursionists time to see the
sports and visit the beauty spots in the
neighborhood? It is only an eight-
hour run from Prince Rupert; itismore
than likely that it will be the pleasant-
est kind of weather; the peninsula will
be covered with flowers and have on
its most attractive dress, and the visitors would be sure of a welcome.
Massett has attractions that cannot be
found elsewhere and many would view,
for the first time, the beautiful Inlet
and the quaint Indian reserve of the
Haidas. It might eveu be in order to
have the band present, in uniform—an
attraction that the Prince Rupert
people still lack.

any kind—fire, life, accident or general,

Massett.
Attractions For
Prince Rupert Fair
The Northern British Columbia
Agricultural and Industrial Association
is making great preparations for this
year's Exhibition, which will be held
at Prince Rupert on September 30th,
October lst and 2nd.
Plans for a magnificent building 200
feet long by 100 feet wide have been
got out by Mr. J. Gilmore, an architect
who has recently taken up his residence
in Prince Rupert. This building is to
have 10,000 feet of floor space available
for this year's Exhibition, in addition
to the balconies.
The directors are at the present time
in negotiation with a New York firm
for the engagement of experts to give
flying displays on the newest form of
aeroplane.
Great interest is taken locally in the
work of a young citizen (Mr. F. Bru-
land) who intends to fly in a machine
made by himself. It will be remembered that last year Mr. Bruland was
awarded fiist prize in Class 27, Section
10, for the model of an aeroplane built
by himself.
The question of engaging Miss
Dorothy De Venda, the celebrated
parachute performer, for a balloon
ascension is also under consideration.
A special feature is being made this
year of the tug-of-war, to be pulled on
cleats in the main building. Teams of
six men, open to all comers. For this
a substantial cash prize is offered.
Amongst the other attractions the
directors are hoping to secure Boyd &
Ogle's Circus Company, which includes
150 performing animals. The best-
known turn in this performance is King
Pharaoh, "The Human-brained Pony."
Arrangements are being made with
the railway and steamship companies
for the convenience of those coming
from distant points.
A large silver cup is being offered
for the winning baseball team and
another for the best football team.
Both of these events are open to all
comers from Northern British Columbia.
There are to be rifle shooting contests and also trap shooting at clay
pigeons.
Several Indian bands have entered
for competition.
The prize list is increased this year
to cover some classes which were not
included last year.
Nineteen new members have joined
the Association in the last few days.
The annual subscription is only one
dollar, which confers the full privileges
of membership. The very attractive
membership badge will be forwarded to
each new member on receipt of the
subscription.
Empress Of Ireland
Lost With 1,000 Lives
The news is flashed over the Pacific
Coast of the sinking of the C.P.R. s.s.
Empress of Ireland, off the coast of
Newfoundland, after a collision with a
collier. She sank in 20 minutes and
about one thousand lives were lost.
The collier picked up about 40 people.
 o	
Mr. J. C. Frizell of Sonoma, Cal., returned to the Island on the last boat.
He left for his pre-emption near White
River, where he is having a house built.
H. A. Swain is hauling the lumber from
Massett.
The third reading of the Home Rule
Bill passed the British House of Commons by a majority of 77. So far there
are no reports of war in Ulster and the
Ulsterites are presumably piqued accordingly.
Messrs. Herman, Lake and Plumer
three newcomers, are the pioneer locators at the north end of the Island.
They have applied for pre-emptions
near Cape Knox, opposite Langara
Island, and will engage in fishing prior
to building on their locations.
Mrs. C. Harrison left on Tuesday on
the Prince Albert for London, Eng.
On Monday she received a cable conveying the sad news of her father's
death. The sympathy of the whole
community will go out to her and Mr.
Harrison in their bereavement.
The whaler White tied up at Massett
wharf on Saturday afternoon last. She
brought a man in who had been severly
burned in the arms and face by a powder
explosion on board while off Naden
Harbor. He is stopping at the White
Inn under the care of Dr. Graves.
The following registered at the Hotel
St. Ives during the week: W. J. H.
Holmes, H. C. Stevenson. C. N. Colchester, A. McAnally, W. Stone, F.
Shaw, D. H. Emmerson, J. Brooks, T.
Thomas, C.Keller, all of Victoria; C. L.
Burtch, North Vancouver; D. E. Evans,
Nadu; J. Manson, Prince Rupert.
The s.s. British Empire, Capt. Anderson, was in on Friday. She brought a
man who had been cut about the head
by a case of salmon uhich was in some
way dropped upon him while loading at
Naden Harbor. After his injuries had
been attended to by Dr. Graves, the
steamer left for #Sewall and Port
Clements to discharge powder
Mr. Holmes, B.C.L.S., a son of Col.
Holmes, with a party of surveyors,
arrived on the Prince Albert and left
on Wednesday for the west coast.
They will engage in survey work
during the summer on the oil locations
opposite Frederick Island. Henry
Edenshaw conveyed the party to their
destination on the launch Josephine.

Mr. J. Manson, road superintendent,
has spent the week on the inlet, visiting
the different scenes of road construction
activity.

the summer.
Every rowboat obtainable on the
Inlet has been pressed into service at
the fishing banks, where hundreds of
trollers are operating.
Chief Harry Weah captured seven
halibut, in two hours, in the Inlet,
opposite Massett. One of the monsters
weighed two hundred and forty pounds.
A party of Icelanders left for the
fishing grounds on Thursday. Earl
Wanless accompanied them and is intending to cruise round the West coast.
The genial "Billy" Graef, otherwise
known as "Sparks," together with
Artie Ives, sailing master, made a line
repairing trip up the Inlet on Wednesday and Thursday.
Our whilom friend John Locker, with
two companions, left for the fishing
grounds last week. His rejuvenated
launch, the Gasican, looks like a newly-
coined six-bit piece.
The picnic which Mr. and Mrs. Deasy
intended giving on Victoria Day had to
be abandoned because of the squally
weather. Instead of this a party was
held in their residence. A number from
Massett and other Inlet points availed
themselves of the bounteous hospitality
provided, and returned home declaring
that the 24th had been kept right
royally at the Indian Agency.

It will  be  generally  conceded  that
Conservatism  is based on deeper and
more underlying   principles   than local
administration.    Such matters as roads
and trails, which vitally affect all the
people no matter what their political
creed, should be regarded from other
than a political standpoint, and any administration must look for and should
welcome   criticism   both   from   within
and without its ranks.    On the Islands
we  are   afflicted   with what might be
termed a "Star Chamber"' method of
dealing with these   things.     It  is  impossible to get information as to proposed plans and expenditures,   and any
effort  to do so is  met  with  friendly
contempt.   There is no attempt made,
apparently,   to   apportion   the  appropriations   with   any   regard  for a per
capita expenditure.    Thus,   in   a  year
like the present when work of every
kind is scarce and the road appropriations reduced, we find the plums  being
dropped into the places   needing  them
the   least.     At   the   time  of  writing,
May 28th, the   wave  of   toad activity
which   started   at  the  south  end  has
slowly rolled north and has now touched
Woden River.    Eventual y,   no  doubt,
it will reach the Drizzle Lake, Mass.ett
and  Tow   Hill  settlements.     We  are
reliably informed that some five thousand dollars are being expended to improve   and   continue  a  road   running
from Lawn Hill to the Coal Drill operating under the direction of Mr.  F.  C.
Wright.   There  is an existing wagon
road  for  the  first five  miles  of  this
route, so presumably the money will be
spent on a continuation of this through
land on which, as far as we are able to
discover, there are no settlers at present.    Whilst we have no quarrel with
building   roads   in   this or  any  other
particular   section,   we  think   that  in
this year particularly the m©ney should
be expended so as to do the greatest
good to the greatest number.    It is a
fact beyond dispute that a line drawn
from Gold Creek on the east, coast due
west to a point on the Yakoun River
about two miles south of Port Clements
will show that  seventy-five  per  cent,
of the settlers on the Island live north
of this line.    It would be interesting to
see a statement showing  the  expenditures made at the different points on
Graham Island since, say, 1908, when
road and trail work was regularly instituted.    We are not going to attempt
to place the blame for these and  other
conditions which exist  locally  in  connection with the road work.    What we

MASSETT,

The old timer uses a remarkable
grade of humor by stating that my
letter should settle the question of
feeding cattle on the Island for all
time and that we should place Salal in
the clearings or have it climb up our
houses and barns—perhaps he has reasons for not saying "our clearings."
The man that could come to such a
conclusion from my letter is solid bone
above the ears.
I didn't say   that   cattle   preferred
Sslal   to  other vegetation on the 15th
of  February more than at any other
time, but if a wild  bull  killed   about
that  date   was  known   to  have  been
feeding on Salal within the limits   of
thick  Salal    for  at  least  six weeks,
with  about  two  feet of snow on the
ground, and was in good condition, how
does that line  up with   the argument
that if cattle  are allowed to eat Salal
it is sure death for them?    To  verify
my statement in  regard  to  this   wild
bull I can refer to Mr.   James  White,
who killed him north   of Amber  Lake
after trailing him for two days; also to
Thomas Ray   of  the Tl-ell,   who  was
there and helped  pack  him  over  the
lake and to the east coast.     The  rancher on the next quarter to me had his
cattle  corralled   for   some   time   this
winter in heavy salal and  they cleaned
it all up inside  the  fence;  this  stock
was imported two years ago and are in
good  condition  this  spring.    But  the
"Old Timer," like many other amateur
writers, writes first, then looks up his
subject.
§ome people love to travel through
the Indian villages on a hard-beaten
road or up and down the Inlet in a boat
with the tide, meet the steamers at
Massett and pose as an old timer. Let
him take off his collar and tie and beat
it over the Island for a couple of years
and get into the Interior once in a
while: he may run across some cattle
in there, but if he can't follow them in
thick salal he needn't start; however,
he would find some real dope to hand
the newcomer maybe.
Come again, Old Timer, but come
out from under cover—we would like to
have a look at you.
H. G. Carr.
Rev. Mr. Greene visited the south
end of the island as far as Miller
Creek.

paid a visit to Massett and Port

Prince Albert. It was Mr. Davidson's
first visit and he was surprised to find
so much progress and development at
this end of the island. He promises,
when the traffic justifies it, that we will
have a bi-weekly service, and is also in
favor of excursions to the island from
Prince Rupert. During his visit he was
accompanied by Indian Agent Deasy
and made arrangements towards an
exhibit of the products from the islands
at the Panama Exposition in San Francisco. Mr. Davidson's territory covers
from Fort George to Vancouver, and he
is optimistic regarding the future of

Latest War News.
NIAGARA FALLS, May 29.—The
South American plenipotentiaries attended a dinner in the White House,
Washington, and "falls" under the
machinations of the eloquence of
Secretary Bryan. Teddy Roosevelt
"falls" on a branch of the Amazon
and his injuries are so severe that he
returns to lead the Army of the Republic into the oil wells of Tampico. Vera
Cruz "falls" under the guns of the
American fleet. Mexico City "falls"
to the Constitutionalists—only one
Villa left. Huerta "falls" from his
high estate as the forty-third president of the Republic of Mexico.
An insane American soldier named
Parks "falls" into the hands of the
Federals and is executed. The Monroe
Doctrine "falls" on the American Constitution in such a manner that the
South American Republics are called
in to settle the difficulties between the
two larger sister "scrappers." The
plenipotentiaries will recommend that
the deciding battle be fought on Niagara River, one hundred yards above
the Falls. If any other war news
"falls" in our way we will publish an
extra. The Private Parks reported
executed by the Federals is not our
friend Parks. He is alive and well at
Langara Island.

What's the matter with you
Pessimists?
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 your wages 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.
