Report By Surveyors
Of Graham Island
Mr. Nash's survey of Tps. 7, 11 and
14.   Continued from last week.
Large areas of the island are held
under coal and petroleum licences, and
several drilling crews have been actively prospecting for coal on the Yakoun
river and other points, while on the
west coast a company is prospecting
the oil-bearing shales with every prospect of ultimate   success.
Gold-bearing sands exist on the east
coast, but to date no satisfactory method has been employed to separate the
the fine gold from the magnetic sands.
Free gold has lately been discovered
at Juskatlah Inlet, a branch of Masset
inlet, and it is probable that mining will
be an actual industry in the near future.
Over 400 square miles are held under
timber licences, and when the condition
of the markets justify the establishment of large saw and pulp mills, these
industries will be of great value to the
Province. At the present time two
small sawmills are in operation at Mas-
set and Queenstown, providing lumber for local consumption.
Five years ago there may have been
twenty settlers on the whole of Graham
Island. There are now in the neighborhood of 3,000residents, while townsites
have been established at five points on
Masset Inlet alone—Masset and Delkatlah, near the mouth of the inlet;
Sewal, Graham Centre and Queenstown,
on the southern portion of the Inlet,
which expands into an inland lake
some twenty-five miles in length and
seven miles in width.
The climate is that common to the
coast of British Columbia, a mild
healthy climate without extreme heat
in summer or severe cold during winter.
The prevailing winds are from thesouth-
east, with perhaps slightly more rain
than necessary during the spring and
summer months. The snowfall is slight
and rarely reaches a depth of 6 inches
near the shore. Summer frosts are
unknown and the thermometer hardly
ever reaches the zero mark, even during the severest winters.
The soil is uniformly good and all
kinds of small fruits and vegetables
are grown most successfully. The island was awarded the first prize for
a district exhibit at the recent Agr-
cultural Exhibition at  Prince  Rupert.
Cattle and horses thrive on the islands
aud require little feeding during the
winter months. The island generally is
well adapted for mixed farming.
Wild ducks ana geese are to be found
in large numbers in the bays and lakes;
willow and blue grouse are numerous.
Trout may be caught in all the larger
streams. With the exception of a few
cariboo on the west coast, black bear
are the  only  large four-footed   wild
Found Dead In Shack.
Intense excitement reigned in Delkatlah last week when one of Mr. Pros-
ser's boys found the body of Mr. P. C.
Downifj, who had been lying dead in his
cabin for seventeen hours.
A Coroner's inquest was held by Coroner C. Harrison; the jury finding a
verdict of death by asphyxia, as a result of epileptic fits. It came out sub-
sequintly in the evidence that the deceased had been an epileptic since his
residence here.
Following are names of the jurymen:
Messrs: F. A. McGregory, R. B. Rupe,
Thomas Richard, Nigel Sherwood, Wm.
Love, and H. A.  Lamb.
The burial took place at the North
Beach cemetary. A number of Woden
river friends being present. Rev. W.
Crarey read the service.

Local Cases Heard Before Judge Young
C. M. Wilson vs. Posser and Carter.
These caser, where tried last week
before Judge Youn • in the Prince Rupert court, Mr. Wilson getting judgment against Mr. Prosser for the sum
of eight dollars, the latter's costs being reported in the neighborhood of a
hundred dollars. Many witnesses were
present ; among them Messrs. Gou-
let and Entwisle, expert witnesses in
chicken and turnip tops. Carter vs.
Wilson judgment is still pending.
 o	
New Freight And Passenger Service.
Mr. A. H. Swain of White creek,
twelve miles east of Masset, was in
town yesterday making definite arrangements for the installing of a much needed freight and passenger service between Masset, North Beach and East
coast points. Mr. Swain's fast four
horse team will make the seventeen
mile run between Masset and Tow Hill
within the three hours and will meet
every boat.
The need of such a service was long
felt and will prove a boon to eastern
settlers, unable so far to ship in their
freight under any conditions. We wish
Mr. Swain every success.

animals, the island being free from
other pest common to the coast of British Columbia; neither wolves, coyote,
cougers, nor skunks are here to trouble
the settler. Martin and land-otter are
the only valuable land fur-bearing animals, but the sea-otter, a single pelt
of which may be worth $1,500, may still
be "caught on the west coast, though are
not nearly as numerous as they were
before the Hudson Bay Company established a trading-p®st on the island.
Deer have been lately turned loose under the protection of the Provincial
Government, and from recent reports
are thriving and increasing in numbers.
Continued next week.
Spring Salmon Fishing
Commences May lst.
The salmon fishing season will begin
on the 1st May next, and it is expected
that a large number of Spring Salmon
will be caught by the hundreds of fishermen that will be engaged in Hecate
Straits. The ordinary individual who
knows nothing of the work, will understand that all required is a boat, trolling line and bait, either "Spoon," or
a herring. The fishermen row about
trolling-, and as many as thirty of these
beautiful fish have been caught in one
day. The average catch runs from
five to ten, weighing from forty to
sixty pounds, for which the fishermen
received last year four cents per pound.
When tourist travel turn towards the
Queen Charlotte islands, a large number
will come hereto engage in the "sport."
A Spring salmon is a very "game"
fish, and its size is remarkable. Some
have been captured, weighing over one
hundred pounds, and the fishing is recreation for those tired of city life.
Along the shores are numerous camping
ground, with wood and water handy.
The weather is usually good from May
to September, and the days long.
Leisurely rowing a boat about half-a-
mile off-shore, and veiwing the scenery
and hundreds of others engaged in the
same occupation, with the prospects of
landing from one to a dozen large salmon each day, should make the fishing
grounds, off Langara island, a resort
for thousands of people who wish to
spend their holidays pleasantly, and,
if they so desire, profitably. The cold
storage companies will purchase all of
the fish that may be caught. Last year
a few travelers, including the famous
Seton Ker, fished in these waters, and
they all promised to return, stating
no other place in the world afforded
such recreation. A school teacher on
his vacation, netted two hundred dollars,
from the sale of fish, and one Indian
fisherman took in thirty dollars, in one
day. With the completion of the G.T.
P. railway, there will be a great demand for salmon of this species, and
no better way of passing a few months
can be found, than to visit the islands
and indulge in the best of sport

Massett, B.C., Saturday, April 18, 1914
The breath of a new spring is on the
land, the light of a new day. In the
westward trend of civilization the Queen
Charlotte Islands have been marked as
a new field and as a chosen one. In
spite of temporary financial stringency
and contraction of credits, this to all is
self-evident and nowhere is it more
patent than in the Islander office. With
the opening of our Massett headqarters
we cheerfully believe in a future of
greater things for our little paper.
The only publication today on the
islands, the oldest and the only one to
withstand the bitter fare of pioneer
days, we are now in closer touch with
east and west and north and south. We
can say without boasting that our close
connection, our long associations with
the Islands, give us a broader grasp of
local affairs than could be afforded to
any individual or outside paper.
And it is a grand and cheerful sight.
As yet not easily detected on the surface, perhaps, but going the round of
pre-empting settlers we feel the whole
island respond in its every unit to some
virile breath of action, some irrepressible wave of steady constructive optimism.
The greatest drawback is the lack of
a truer co-operation between our different districts. The lack of communication in sparsely settled districts throws
settlers very much alone. They have
no time to spare in a social way. They
know each other but very superficially,
and whenever they do happen to meet
they are like two links that don't fit—
will not unite and pull together.
And this is why we feel so strongly
the weight of our trust as the only
medium of expression between so many
variegated and apparently disconnected
sources. The local paper in such a field
as ours has a more intimate relation,
a greater importance than is generally
conceeded. It is the melting pot in which
are fused a thousand points of view. It
is for the actual population what the
public school and closer social relations
are for the next generation.
It is higa time to organize in an
efficient homogenous working whole the
real strength of the islands. The day
has come to eliminate the drones who
would rule the hive to their own ends.
Our needs are many. We need greater
and more efficient advertising ; we want
greater and closer co-operation with our
governments.
The  Queen   Charlottes   are   young.
They have time and strength to do and
abide. They are too young to grow
weary, to strong to be ridden, and the
stars i-ide high over their destinies.

MASSETT,
GRAHAM ISLAND
Editor Islander,—It seems to me
that both parties tothe argument that
has been running in the Islander for
some   weeks are   a little   "personal."
One says , and   the other says .
If one is right, then the other must be
wrong! That's logical! It appears tome
that both have good arguments; butwhen
they raise "ghosts" and bring out Irishmen in a light that is not at all commendable, they step on air and coat
tails. Supposing the parties were to
confine themselves to using the post-
office, instead of the public press, the
"ghosts" might be laid and everyone,
with the exception of the "controver-
tionalists," would be happy. It is an
open question to my mind what the
argument is all about anyway? The
parties interested know their own minds,
and are expressing themselves as
though they understood and are content
to still believe as they did at the commencement of the discussion. Remove
"ghost," the "Irishman," and the
personalities, and all one can find is a
question of what constitutes a "Boss."
The word itself is very vague, and
appears to savor of New York "slang."
It is not used in good society, any more
than the word, "liar." It is distinctly
unparliamentary to use such terms,
and when they are mixed up with
"ghosts" and Irish that is not talked
now-a-days, there   is a sure means of
causing trouble. OQUIT.

The infant child of Robert Williams
died, on the Massett Reserve, on Monday morning. The funeral took place
on Wednesday, Rev. W. Creary officiating.
The $80,000,000 San Francisco Exposition will open next year with an
aeroplane trip around the world. It
seems that the Panama Canal will be
a secondary consideration—air replacing
water as a means of locomotion,—and
an endeavour will be made to show
that there is a shorter route than via
the Canal.
The two Canneries, on the island,
will not operate this year. It is expected that the Naden Harbor cannery
would can the Pink salmon. It is expected, after the run of Spring salmon
that the Indians will migrate to the
Skeena river. Mr. Gilmour, at present
managing the Oceanic Cannery, was
a visitor to Massett, last week, and is
making arrangements to have the fishermen on   the   Skeena   river, in July.

Mr. Peters of Massett spent a few
days here last week.
Messrs F. and C. Graham recently
purchased from C. S. Wormald the
house in which they have been residing for the past five months.
On Saturday last a working "bee"
was held at Graham Centre for the
purpose of clearing gronnd for a tennis
court. Several large stumps were removed and the grounds nicely graded.
The toilers were afterwards rewarded
by a sumptious repast provided by the
ladies. Among those present were
Messrs CM. Adams, J. Boyes, Williams,
F. Graham, C. Graham and W. Rennie.
Much creditis due toMesdames, Boyes,
Williams, Graham, O'Flyum, Rennie,
O'Brien and Millard for the excellence
of the supper. The court, which will
speedily be completed is near the water-
fr nt and commands a splendid view of
the lake and distant mountains.
