Walter Cross left Sunday for his ranch
at Mayer Lake.
The tango has reached Queenstown
and the slit skirt Massett.
A 'pb/me has been installed on the
•' Polaris.''   Wireless next!
•» Alex. Johnson came up from the Nadu on a brief visit this week.
George Mayer was in town over the
week-end from his ranch at Kundis Bay.
The ladies of Massett are giving a
Masquerade Ball on New-Year's night.
Mr. Charles Harrison, of Massett,
was in Queenstown over Thursday night
on business in connection with his property.
West Singer has returned from Gold
Creek where he built a foot-bridge, on
instructions from Mr. Thorne, telegraph
engineer.
H. B. Lehrman, who has been ill for
some time with typhoid, is well on the
way towards restored health, thanks to
the patient nursing and attention of
Messrs. MacKay and Partridge.
The Queenstown District Conservative Association will hold a smoking
concert on the evening of January 17.
Arrangements are being completed by
the Executive for a good time and all
the local talent will be on deck.
Friends are anxious to locate William
Armrod, aged 28, last heard of at the
Strand Hotel, Vancouver, June 26, this
year. He was supposed to have left
for Prince Rupert the same day, en
route to Massett. Since then he has
not been heard of. Any information
kindly forward to Malcolm R. J. Reid,
Dominion immigration agent.
Graham Island weather for the week:
clear, bright sunshine, very mild ; no
rain, snow or frost. A 'phone message
from Massett asks if there will be any
entries for the aquatic sports to be held
in Delkatla Bay on Christmas Day.
Queenstown replied: Sorry; tennis tournament same day to be followed in the
evening by a turkey trot and a gooBe
hug in Hastie's hall.
The settlers on the east coast in the
Tl-el River district are petitioning the
Provincial Government for the construction of a wagon road to Queenstown. At present they get their supplies in by way of Skidegate, a distance
of over thirty miles. A road to Queenstown from Tl-el would only mean a distance of twelve miles for them to get
their supplies in and to ship out their
products. Not only so, for it would
open up that part of the country for
settlement and also provide a direct
route between the north and south ends
of the island. The road is a necessity
and has got to be built sooner or later.
Central Graham Island
Settlers' League.
The settlers of the central portion of
Graham Island have banded themselves
together and formed what is to be
known in the future as The Central
Graham Island Settlers' League. The
aim and object of the League is to further the general welfare of the Island
in general by taking up air matters of
importance to the settler.
For some time past a feeling of dissatisfaction has been spreading among
the settlers of Graham Island over the
manner in which the public funds of our
Provincial Treasury have been expended
in the building of roads and trails. A
discussion of way and means of bettering this condition of things will be one
of the first matters taken up by the
League.
The Settlers' League will not bind itself to any political organization, but
will use its own discretion at the polls
and will support whichever party it considers will do its best for the district.
The officers of the League are as follows: President, J. T. O'Flynn; secretary-treasurer, Felix Graham; board of
directors, J. C. Brosh, A. D. Burton,
Capt. MacTavish and J. McDougall.
F. Graham, Secy.

INCORPORATION
To the Editor of The Queen Charlotte
Islander.
NADU
The landslide which blocked part of
the Nadu road for some time has been
cleared by the Provincial Government.
The Farmers' Institute will hold a
general meeting on January 2nd at Mr.
Brandt's house for the election of
officers.
Ed. Mesner and Herman Jeska are
proud boys these days. A few days
ago they trapped one of the biggest
bears ever seen in this vicinity and the
settlers in the neighborhood have been
feasting gloriously on bear meat ever
since.
Freeman Tingley of the Pioneer ranch
will soon be in a position to supply the
local market with fresh meat. Mr.
Tingley has a big herd of cattle and
pigs, and during the past week has
been supplying the various settlements
with pork.
John Armstrong has finished his new
home on his pre-emption and has
moved in.
The telephone has been installed at
Alex. Johnson's house here.
John Brickbealer has been searching
in the bush for several days for a valuable steer that has gone astray.
James Martin's store is being enlarged
and renovated, and a landing stage for
the "Kathleen" is being built.
Mrs. Brickbealer's father and mother
and their family, who arrived recently
from Sumas, Wash., will locate at the
Nadu.
Dear Sir,—There is one among us
worthy of the Paladins of old. His
name is Leary. He it is who in a short
hour or two of open debate sought to
convert a number of Massett Inlet
farmers to the advantages of municipal
government.
The task was tremendous, worthy of
Quixote himself, but to our mind as
hopelessly doomed to failuie as that
gentleman's tilts at the Spanish windmills.
That the public was interested was
amply shown by the attendance, but
that the subject was altogether beyotTd
its grasp was also proven beyond fact.
Had Mr. Leary given us a lecture, or
a set of them, on municipalities; had
he given us a synopsis of the question,
a few points on the dilemmas of taxation, and not till then opened the matter to debate—had he done ail this he
might have hoped some achievement.
Farmers are essentially cautious and
conservative and to broach among lay
minds such a complex problem in open
discussion was to court confusion and
disaster.
All credit must be given Mr. Leary
for his sincere offort. Our apologies
are his for our apparent failure to support his movement. Apparently we are
all "from Missouri." . If we may we
would suggest that he give us his views
in the local press, where they could be
diseussed and studied at leisure.
Libraries have been written on municipal questions. The cleverest economists
of today are warring over the intricacies of taxation systems. Our own Sir
Richard appointed last year a Royal
Commission on taxation. Is it therefore astonishing that we simple sons of
the glebe ask for more light ere we
form or accept an opinion ?
And Mr. Leary's plea rested precisely
on that abstruse problem of taxation.
Our revenues, he claimed—the Island's
revenues—found their way to the Provincial treasury, but only in a very
fractional part came back to us in the
form of grants. Municipalities several
times smaller in area received greater
subsidies than we do.     On the ground
of unfair distribution he urged as a
remedy the adoption of the Municipal
Act.
We frankly admit our unfamiliarity
with the problem, but whatever the
merits of Municipal Government, however sound Mr. Leary's theory, however
much we respect his opinion, we must
here remark his arguments seem based
on a flagrant fallacy.
For we fail to see by what right we
may claim the wild land tax of the
whole of the Island. All the land situate
west of the Yakoun river and Massett
Inlet can only by a great stretch of
imagination be called within any of the
exis'ting settlements. They are essentially Provincial assets. If such wholesale incorporation is possible where are
its limits. Why not while we are at it
take Moresby within the fold.
As to the distribution of these
revenues would it not be more logical
and less of an insult to our intelligence
to draw the parallel not between the
"areas" of the districts concerned but
between their populations. We know
the Skeena district is large in "area "
but the 35 municipalities who form
three-quarters of B. C. 's population are
crowded in a very fractional part of its
territory. The distribution of Provincial
grants is not a matter of square miles
but of votes. We hold this clear as A
B C and think it strange such an old
horse on the political turf as Mr. Leary
seems not aware of it.
Let us suppose that we adopt the
Municipal Act and take in these several
hundred squ ;re miles of monopoly owned
land. These big interests would be our
main support and would use their power-
influence to get their taxes lowered or
turned back on their own property in
the form of roads, thus paying- no taxes
at all. There are a hundred ways in
which big interests may bully municipalities. It is done every day and we
fear Messrs. the Land lords, Lumber
lords and Coal lords would have a clean
walk away.
Are these your friends Mr. Leary ?
They are not the settlers. B. C.'s
system of unorganized districts, said a
prominent economist in a Chicago paper
lately, is really a combination of a maximum of efficiency with a minimum of
tax. By adopting the municipal form
of administration we leave all this behind—a strong government of far see-

The Islander, for the past two years,
has advocated for a better steamer and
mail service for the Islands, and has
often urged the Prince Rupert Board of
Trade to bestir themselves, not only
for their own benefit but for the Queen
Charlottes as well. Graham Island is
fast opening up and being settled by a
good class of peop'e. Within the past
two years hundreds of settlers have
located here and still the same old twice-
-a-month service is being handed out
during the winter months. Conditions
have changed very much during the
past two years and the time has arrived
for a least a weekly steamer in winter
and twice-a-week during the summer.
The Empire has taken the matter up
and the following editorial is taken from
a recent issue:
"Some days ago The Empire expressed the opinion that with the completion of the railway it would become
necessary to go after business if Prince
Rupert is to come into its own as a real
commercial centre. It must be apparent to all that the present policy of
sitting tight will not bring results. All
a large number seem to think of is to
boost real estate. Such an effort will
not alone build up a solid city. If move
attention were paid to the commercial
aspect, real estate could then very well
take care of itself. Months ago, for
instance, this paper pleaded for a united
effort on behalf of the maintenance of
a weekly winter steamer service out of
Prince Rupert in order that district
settlers could the better be kept in touch
with the city and civilization, but not
the slightest inteiest was shown in the
matter, and now we see the twice-a-
monfh service re-established. We see,
too, a direct service established between
Vancouver, Victoria and the Queen
Charlotte Islands, and the trade which
ought to come to Prince Rupert is
switched to the southern cities. How
are we going to build up a commercial
city under these conditions? Surely it
is high time to give seme heed to matters
of this character if we ever hope to see
the city properly commercialized. What
we need here is a steamer which will
make this city its home port, which will
be on the constant move to district
points, and which will visit the various
outlying centres as frequently as a one-
boat service can make the rounds. Then
the mails could be delivered more
promptly, settlers would be encouraged
to open up the country, and Prince
Rupert would get the fruit of its enterprise. Ah it is now, we are simply
sleeping—drifting, and living in great
expectations. That might have been
all right in Micawber sday, but it won't
help to make for a more p.osperous
Prince Rupert."

ing, experienced executives, we exchange for a council of unaided and inexperienced men.
To summarise. We have no intention
to condemn at a glance Mr. Leary's
'' pet scheme," but we want more light.
As we have previously remarked : we
are from Missouri, the "show me"
State. We are strongly inclined to
think ourselves too economically and
politically young to forsake the concrete
advantages we enjoy for a doubtful administration. We only see a change
from the actual to the possible and the
uncertain, from the efficient to the un-
efficient, from competence and strength
-to uncompetence and weakness. Such
a change courts graft and corruption
and gains, as far as we may see, but a
fine privilege to unholy squabbling.
We lack the social cohesion, the real
community life and intercourse, the
public spirit necessary to the management of municipal affairs. We are too
busy rooting stumps just now to govern
ourselves, and as we used to say on the
range, "if you own a good horse ride it
hard." Let Uncle Dick and Brother
Manson do the work. They are dead
willing and so far "made it pay."

GRAHAM CENTRE
Mr. and Mrs. Boyes visited Massett
last week on business. They had rather
an exciting experience being stormbound for twenty-four hours on the
inlet.
Messrs. Doyle and Eastman, who have
been at Massett for some time, stopped
off at the Centre on their way to their
ranches te pick up mail and supplies.
Mr. and Mrs. Graham have moved into their new house, and axe busy putting
things to rights.
Building seems to be the order of the
day in the vicinity. A scow load of
lumber was.towed into Kundis Bay from
Mr. Barton's mill last Wednesday, part
of which is to be used by Mr. Lundquist
in making additions to his home at the
Narrows, the remainder being for the
Rev. H. H. K. Greene, who is building
on his pre-emption. Another scow load
was towed over to Graham Centre for
Capt. MacTavish, who is building on
the townsite.
The ladies of the Centre are very busy
getting things in shape for the Xmas
festivities.
The Debating Club held its fornightly
social on Saturday evening.   The Committee are to be congratulated on the
excellent programme.   Mrs. Greene and
Miss Adam made a decided hit in their
dialogue, which was the event of the
evening.     A  reading  by  Capt.   MacTavish from   the  official   handbook of
Western Australia on "Land settlement
and assistance to settlers " was listened
to with great attention.     At  its  conclusion the Rev. H. H. K. Greene gave
a short address on the subject, in which
he stated that it would be a good thing
for the Province if the  Government
could see its way clear to introduce a
measure on similar lines for settlers in
B.   C.     Instrumental music by Mrs.
Williams and Mrs. Boyes, songs by Miss
Adam and Capt. MacTavish, with games
and tricks between, helped to make the
evening a success.   At the close of the
entertainment   the  committee  served
their guests with coffee and cakes, after
which everybody joined hands anc. sang
Auld Lang Syne and then departed their
several ways.
A telephone call station has been in- ?\^
stalled here during the week and it is
much appreciated by the townsfolk.
