Big Lighthouse
Ready By November
Within three months the big lighthouse and diaphone fog alarm now being erected on Langara Island will be
placed in operation, according to H. C.
Killeen, resident engineer of the marine
and fisheries department. Mr. Killeen,
who has been supervising the' erection
of aids to navigation in the north for
the past two months, reports that
splendid progress has been made in
clearing the site, constructing roadways
and trestles and carrying out the first
stage of construction work. The big
lantern, which will be set up on the immense tower now being constructed, is
on the ground, and Mr. Killeen hopes to
see the lantern throwing its light out
on to the Pacific by the end of Novem-i
ber. Twenty men are now working on
the island and are at present engaged
in building the tower.
The building of this lighthouse is
probably the most difficult task the
marine department has ever undertaken
on this coast. A roadway up a steep
incline has had to be constructed about
a mile long and a trestle 400 feet in
length has beent built.
The diaphone to be installed at Lan-
gura will be a triplicate, the first of its
kind to be used in British Columbia
waters.
Langara Island lies off the north-west
coast of Graham Island, in Dixon Entrance, and will be the approach to
Prince Rupert of vessels from the
Orient and other ports.
Supplying Liquor
Local News Items
To Local Indians
Mrs. F. A.  Ray,   of  Vancouver, arrived last Monday to spend a holiday at
Smart Capture by Constable Macdonald Queen Charlotte, and is the guest of
  Mrs. F. D. Rice.
Two Chinamen Fined $100 or  Two
Months' Imprisoment
Two Chinamen were convicted by
Stipendary Magistrate Sandilands on
Friday at Queen Charlotte with supplying intoxicants to Indians at Aliford
Bay, and fined $100 and costs, or two
months' imprisonment. The accused
pleaded not guilty. Dominion constable
J. F. Macdonald prosecuted, and called
two witnesses—Henry Moodey and John
Williams—who swore that they bought
two bottles of whisky from the accused
and paid them two dollars a bottle.
An interpreter for the accused, stated
that the whisky was stolen by the Indians!
from their shack. Magistrate Sandi-(
lands was convinced by the evidence led j
and found accused guilty, and imposed
the above-mentioned penalty.
Several complaints have been lodged
with the authorities recently as to the
Indians being supplied with liquor, and
Dominion constable Macdonald lost no
time on his arrival here in getting on
the right track. Great credit is also
due to chief councillor Stirling in assisting Constable Macdonald in making the
arrests.

British Empire Arrived With Gasoline.
The steamer British Empire, Captain
W. Kerr, of the Northern Steamship
company, arrived here Thursday forenoon with a consignment of gasoline
for D. Cochrane. She also called at
Aliford Bay with freight for the B. C.
Fisheries Ltd.
 o	
The new five dollar Dominion bank
notes are proving quite popular. Already eight million dollars have been
put in circulation. Canadians, however,
are not taking much to gold and the
demand for the recent gold coinage is
not nearly as brisk as was anticipated.
The principal demand seems so be from
British Columbia. The eastern provinces
have thus far used very little of it and
what has been circulated, it is understood, is chiefly for souvenirs and
curiosities.
It is rumored that the proposed visit
of Winston Churchill, First Lord of the
Admiralty, to Canada, has been postponed, pending a settlement of the
naval question between the Imperial
government and Canada.
* Becomes A Benedict.
A pretty wedding, says the Victoria

Day, second daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
R. S. Day of " Derreen," Rockland Ave.
Only relatives and immediate friends
were present. A small reception was
afterwards held at the home of the
bride's parents. Mr. and Mrs. Dundas
are spending their honeymoon touring
Vancouver Island. Mr. Dundas is well-
known locally, being chief operator at
Ikeda wireless station for the past two
years.

School Days Again.
Miss Elizabeth Miller, L.L.A., who
will take charge of the Queen Charlotte
school, arrived on the steamer Vadso

and all arrangements are made for
opening school today.

^nd Skidegate in connection with the
fisheries buildings and wharves. The
local sawmill of the Moresby Island
Lumber Company supplied over two
trillion feet of the material.
The Prince John returned Tuesday
afternoon to Aliford Bay, making a
special call for Sir George and Lady
Doughty. Mr. Wilfred V. Doughty and
Mr. A. W. Carter accompanied Sir

was accompanied by two directors of
the syndicate, H. L. M. Bourkeof Essex,
Eng,, and Mr. and Mrs. Grey of London,
Eng.
The steamer British Empire made the
trip to Massett Inlet on Tuesday with
machinery and equipment for a sawmill
to be erected at Ain river for the Massett Inlet Lumber Co.
Dr. L. W. Kergin of Prince Rupert,
came over last Monday and had a consultation with Dr Winter, who, for some
time past has been in poor health. We
are glad to report that Dr. Winter has
greatly improved during the past week.
E. M. Morgan came up on Friday

WANTED
A Home Newspaper.
Since the first issue of the Queen
Charlotte Islander, we have no complaint to make, regarding patronage.
In small communities the fact is sometimes overlooked that the struggling
editor of a home newspaper makes little
or nothing from the subscription list.
The largest journals in the province
would be compelled to close down if
they relied for financial support on their
subscription list; nevertheless, the
small yearly fee aids, and as the proceeds and requirements of the country
grows, we expect to grow also. It is
patent to our readers that the Islander
is doing all that is possible to meet the
requirements of the islands, and every
reader should be a canvasser and help
to support a-newspaper. The advertiser will find that the Islander enters
more of the homes on the islands than
any other provincial newspaper.
Through the columns of the Islander,
the country about us is becoming known,
and the large influx of settlers that will
follow the construction of the railway
will have information regarding the
potentialities of the Queen Charlotte
Islands. We have been issuing the
Islander for a year, under adverse circumstances ; but, with the faith in the
islands, and through the good-will of
the advertisers and subscribers, the
work will continue. Pioneering in an
undeveloped country is not all "beer
and skittles;" although we have the
support of the large majority of the
residents. If you are not advertising,
commence right away ; if you are not
a subscriber, forward the small subscription price and keep in touch with
the development of the Islands.
 O	
With the large number of Indians employed at canneries on the islands, and
all making good money this year, fishing and otherwise, there is a possibility
of some obtaining intoxicants. Fortunately, the majority of our Indians
are temperate, and many are as anxious
to suppress the liquor traffic among
their people as the authorities are, knowing that intoxicating liquor is the bane
of the Indian, of all races. The murder
of a North-west mounted police officer
by a drunken Indian, and the killing of
a Provincial, constable in the upper,
country, has impressed the authorities
with a determination to enforce the law
most rigorously on all found supplying
the Indians with Intoxicants. The
maximum penalty is a fine of $300 or
six months' imprisonment, under the
Indian act. There are no Indians exempt from this act in any part of the
province—the enfranchisement part of
the Indian act does not apply to the
Indians of B. C. Any steamer or other
vessel on which intoxicants are given
to an Indian, may be seized and sold,
and the commander fined heavily, the
informer, in all cases, receiving one-
half of the fine. The fact that an
Indian or half-breed lives on a reserve
and adopts the Indian mode of life, is
sufficient evidence to convict a supplier,
when the question is raised respecting
the nationality of the man supplied with
the intoxicants. Police officers are now
stationed at Massett and Queen Charlotte, with a Dominion constable connected with the agency on the Islands.
The conviction on Friday of two Chinamen should act as a warning.
-o-
Canada's Loyalty.
Aids To Navigation.
The new lighthouse to be buit at
Cape St. James will not be constructed
this year. It is also proposed to place
a light near Rose Spit and it would be
in the interest of a large number of
people who travel on the water if a
light were placed at the entrance to
Massett Harbor, with a buoy at the
point between the Indian town and the
new townsite of Massett. The shoal at
the entrance to Naden Harbor is also
dangerous, and it would be a great
benefit to have this buoyed. Considering the number of whalers, coasting
vessels and launches now using the
Northern waters, the marine and fisheries department should buoy and light
the entrance to all navigable waters,
especially in the neighborhood of
Graham and Moresby Islands.
There has been a great deal said in
recent years on the question of the
loyalty of the people of Canada. The
jingo element is so small, despite the
fact that farmers of the United States
are moving, lock, stock and barrel, to our
Dominion, that it is hardly necessary to
consider the vaporings of a few men
who would not be any more content in
heaven above than they are on earth
below. That we have one flag, one
King, and one country, goes without
dispute that is worthy of consideration.
We must protect that flag, that King,
and that country, if for no other reason
than to guard our homes and our lives.
We are a self-governing portion of the
empire, controlling our affairs under a
system even better than in the British
Isles. With responsible government,
one man one vote, and laws that are
superior to those of any country in the
world, there is nothing for any person
to complain of. We fear no foe, on
land or sea, with the whole of Britain
behind us. In years to come, when
Canada will be the home of many
millions, the same friendship for the
Motherland will be apparent that is
shown today. There is no necessity for
the loyalty cry. We always have been
and always will be Britishers.

Graham Island News
Ten land locators arrived at Massett
on the last steamer.
Mexican Tom is improving rapidly
and will soon be able to leave his room,
at Massett.
Capt. Entwistle of Massett, is suffering from the effects of a poisoned limb
and is under the care of Dr. A. Ross
Fraser.
A professor of Toronto University is
visiting the waters of Hecate Straits,
seeking information regarding the salmon and other denizens of the deep.
Captain Andrew Brown made two
trips to the B. C. Oilfields property with
piping and drills. Ten men are at work
at Tiahn Point, on night and day shifts,
and good progress is being made.
The ladies of Massett held an entertainment at the home of Mrs. Harrison
to raise funds for the new Anglican
church at Massett. Miss Long, a visitor from Victoria, favored the large
audience with a piano recital, which was
much appreciated. The young lady
played several selections in a manner
that proved the mastery of an instrument and the ability of a musician with
few, if any superiors in the province.
The proceeds, amounting to one hundred
dollars will be added to the building fund.
The cannery at Scoes, Naden Harbor,
has been closed down for two weeks,
after putting up a full pack of spring
and humpback salmon. It is the intention of the Wallace Fisheries company
to can cohoe salmon and other fish. The
cohoe run has started and will continue
during the month of September. A new
innovation will be taken up in the canning of crabs and other shell fish.
Twenty-eight head of cattle were
brought to Massett on the steamer
Prince John recently. At the present
time there are over one hundred and
fifty head of cattle on the Inlet, principally on the large piece of open land
along the east coast. The settlers along
the route, from Massett to Cape Fife, are
all taking cattle to their pre-emptions.
John Abramson, a recent arrival, had
a narrow escape from drowning in Massett Inlet. His boat overturned opposite
the townsite and drifted for three miles
before Abramson was noticed and rescued. Although hampered by his clothing and a pair of gum boots, he managed
to climb on the upturned boat and remained there until two whites and an
Indian put out in a boat and brought
him to shore.
Captain Henry Edenshaw is the possessor of four young geese. The birds
are able to fly, and leave the reserve
daily, returning at night. It was the
intention to cut their wings; but they
are too wild and cannot be caught.
They roam all over the Indian reserve,
"honking" and feeding with the
chickens, but on the approach of a
human being they fly away or take to
the water.
Archbishop McNeil, of Vancouver,
who has been appointed Archbishop of
Toronto, is sending a colony to the land
recently purchased a few miles above
Massett.
Tingley Bros, new hotel at Queentown
is nearing completion and will be the
finest building on the island.
J. H. Dodgson, a new settler, from
New Zealand, has purchased 640 acre
on Mexican Tom's trail, near Queenstown.
1 I. Van der Bom brought in twenty
head of Holstein cattle and k located
near Oeanda river"
The contract for extending the wharf
at the Indian village has been awarded
to H. Edenshaw. He constructed the
wharf two years ago and it is proposed
to add a section thereto for the accommodation of the fast increasing fleet of
vessels arriving at Massett.
A party of Dakota farmers visited the
Ain river and looked over sections of
land. They were accompanied by a
priest, who held services during his
stay. Several German families have
purchased land in that locality, and
moved to their new homes.
An excursion from Winnipeg and surrounding prairie sections is expected to
arrive in Massett to look over the pos-
sibilties of the island.
Seventeen families will arrive at
Mayer Lake this month to occupy land
in that vicinity. N On the west side of
Massett Inlet a number of families are
being installed by a land company.
The steamers William Jolliffe, British
Empire, Prince John and Claxton were
in Massett recently. The Jolliffe brought
a party of scientists, and the British
Empire landed a quantity of freight.

QUEEN CHARLOTTE ISLANDER
History Of Queen Charlotte Islands.
Haidas and Their Legends.
By Mr. Charles  Harrison.
Article XXI—Chief Edenshaw
When the Hudsons Bay Company had
located at Massett and the Haidas had
seen that they could purchase whatever
they desired at their store they all
finally consented to abandon their
scattered villages and form one large
village, and consequently they all arranged to make Massett their headquarters. This decision was also further strengthened when they saw that
the Church Missionary Society intended
to establish a mission there, and that
the missionary would be able to teach
their children to read and write. Their
own instincts also told them that by so
doing they themselves would gradually
become accustomed to the habits and
customs of the whitesXTherefore when
I arrived at Massett 'all these northern
Haidas had made Massett their headquarters during the winter months for
their feasting, dancing and potlatching.
I have seen some very remarkable and
ancient dances in this village when the
Haidas were clad in their original dancing costumes, with faces painted and
feathers in their hair. Such chiefs as
Anetlus, Captain John, Laig, Haltus,
Weha, Doctor Kootay and Edenshaw
would take part in the entertainment.
I These dances will never again take place
on these islands as the younger generation would never revert to the old customs of their forefathers, for they have
tasted of the fruits of civilization, and
could not return if they wished to do so,
to the original savagery of their ancestors. I well remember an exceptionally
interesting dance that took place in old
Chief Weha's house. All the Haidas
were there assembled and had been
dancing for about two hours when
presently several men carrying in an
upright position a magnificent old totem
pole entered the house. This valuable
pole belonged to one of Edenshaw's
ancestors whom he had succeeded. In
front of this pole Chief Edenshaw
danced for about fifteen minutes a most
strange and beautiful dance, and when
he had finished he ordered the totem
pole to be cast upon the fire and there
burnt, so that no other chief would ever
be able to dance as Edenshaw had done
before this genuine and ancierrt totem
pole of a bygone ancestor./I have also
seen Chief Edenshaw stand by the grave
side of a chief they had just buried and
all around him were bales of blankets
and rolls of prints and ginghams for
distribution. The friends of the deceased chief had requested Chief Edenshaw to give the funeral oration and
this he did in an excellent manner as became his rank. He set forth all the
virtues and noble deeds of the dead man
and afterwards distributed all the blankets and prints to those who were entitled to receive them. I stood and
watched the scene, and even a king in
bestowing gifts to his subjects could
not have assumed a more majestic and
royal manner than Edenshaw did upon
this occasion. This was the only time
that I ever saw a distribution of goods,
i.e., a potlatch around  the grave of a
chief, and the blankets and prints were
brought to the graveside in a most remarkable manner.     All  the way from
the house of the deceased chief to the
graveyard the men stretched their blankets over their shoulders and the women
did the same with  their prints.     The
first man would start from  the  house
with the corner of  his blanket held in
his hand and with the blanket thrown
over his shoulder  so  that  the  second
man could catch hold of the other end
and keep it off the  ground.     This the
second man did with one hand and held
the corner of  his blanket thrown over
his shoulder to the third man with his
other and so on.     When the first man
had  reached  the  grave-yard  the  last
man "had just  about started from the
house of the deceased chief holding on
to the blanket of the man who proceeded him and with his own blanket rolled
up on his arm.     They then  kept step
and  marched  in  this fashion   to   the
grave.     There the first man deposited
his  blanket on the ground, the  second
did likewise and  so on until all were
placed   in   goodly   sized   heaps.     The
women then in the same fashion carried
their goods and brought all their prints
and ginghams to the deceased  chief's
grave; a goodly assortment of dry goods
of all colors and descriptions.   The chief
was then buried and as  I  have before
stated all these goods were distributed
at his grave, Chief Edenshaw being in
command of all the arrangements.   Another great event at which he  figured
prominently was the erection of the last
Itotem pole  that was ever erected  at
Massett.     This totem pole was erected
In front of the house of a great chief-
tess named Kit-ko-ne.    Thousands  of
dollars  worth of   blankets,   crockery,
guns, bracelets, coins, and goods of all
descriptions were given away to testify
to the fact that this woman was indeed
a great, wealthy, and important chief-
tess.     In addition to these potlaches at
the grave and the erection of this totem
pole, magnificent and bounteous  feats
were prepared and hundreds of dollars
worth  of sugar, pilot bread and other
kinds of food were distributed.     Perhaps some of your readers  will say,
what an exorbitant  waste of money.
You must remember that all these things
occurred   before   they became   accustomed to the ways  and  habits  of the
white  man,   and  before  they became
Christians.    This was the custom generally  of the ancient Haidas in paying
of their indebtedness for the labor and
advice of those who had assisted them,
and these potlatches were  simply the
repayment of social obligations.     This
article is simply a short account of Edenshaw and his life, and is not derogatory of any of the other old chiefs on
these islands, for the old chiefs thirty,
yea, twenty years ago were deserving
of all praise for their honesty and goodwill towards the whites.   Amongst well-
known chiefs that formerly ruled these
islands and were rulers over their own
tribes were such as Weha at Massett,
Nahtlan at Yen, Skidegate at Skidegate, Spence at the Yakoun, Anetlus
at Tou Hill, and many others, not forgetting Amos Russ and Tom Stevens at
Skidegate. All these men did their utmost in preserving the pease on these
islands and all are worthy of great
praise for their goodwill towards the
whites and for the assistance they have
rendered them. A writer a short time
ago gave a description of this illustrious chief and amongst other things he
said, " Edinshaw being now his own
master after the death of his uncle had
full scope for the energy and capacity
he possessed, and soon added considerably to the prestige he had inherited.
Knowing that the man that could make
the most potlatches was unanimously
accorded the supremacy, he set himself
to acquire wealth, which in those days
consisted chiefly of slaves, blankets,
furs and coppers."
