The Late Rev. Wm. Hogan
(Continued from page 1)
that robust frame and place him on a
bed of sickness, from which he did not
rise again. Within one month from the
attack of illness he passed away, and
the countenance so well known in the
North will no longer be seen in the pulpit, and the voice that was always
raised in protest against wrong, will no
longer be heard in the churches of the
diocese.
The Indians of the Queen Charlotte
Islands will miss their respected pastor
even more so than the white communicants. He resided among them, declining to change his place of abode, although requested to do by his white
congregation. He lived and died among
the children who required his services,
and with whom he spent the days and
nights of his middle-age and declining
years. At his earnest request the body
was laid to rest in the south-east corner
of the Massett Reserve cemetery, close
to the sound of the sad sea waves, and
within a few feet ef the inlet, ©n which
he spent a great deal of time journeying
from one settlement to the other.
Twenty-one years, without a break
in ministerial work, the deceased pastor
struggled to uplift those entrusted to
his care. It was the delight of all
visitors te Massett to inspect the rectory grounds and view the garden in
which he spent many days of the year.
With his esteemed and beloved wife,
the deceased had a welcome for high
and low, rich and poor, and all were impressed with the hearty welcome accorded at the Rectory.
Realizing that he was passing away,
he called around him many of his
parishioners and informed them that he
had done his "level best," during the
years that he ministered to them, and
was prepared for the journey to that
bourne where so many of his flock had
preceded him. The following lines,
which he used in many of his discourses,
may well be applied to the late Mr.
Hogan:
When you've done your work as well as
you can
And your past is clean and your conscience clear,
When   you   know   that   you   haven't
wronged any man,
When you've made no foe to be faced
with fear,
The busy world may be still inclined
To deny rewards you have longed to
claim,
But it cannot rob you of peace of mind
Or bring to your cheeks the blush of
shame.
And the world, however it may connive
To keep you down and hold you back,
Must respect the hopes that you keep
alive,
Though its praise may be for the
gifts you lack,
And the scorn on the lips of the richest
man
Is aot a thing you have cause to fear,
When you've done your work as well as
you can
And your past is clean and your conscience clear.

MASSETT,
GRAHAM ISLAND
Mr. C. M. Adam, of Graham Centre,
who returned recently from a trip to
the southern part of the island, was
very much impressed with the large
amount of development work which has
taken place there since his last visit,
over four years ago and has the following to say regarding same:
At Tl-el River, Mr. Turney is to be
congratulated upon the excellent showing he has made in the short space of
time he has been there, and considering
the difficulties he has worked under, Mr.
Turney has one of the most complete
farm-yards on the island. It includes
horses, cows, pigs, poultry, rabbits and
pheasants/ the last named doing very
well under Mrs. Turney's careful attention, and she should be proud of having
the first pheasantry on the island.
Our old friend Mrs. Hodges and her
son have a very fine location on the
river and have already large paddocks
of natural pasture all fenced, as well
as a large stock barn and dwelling-
house, not to mention the fine herd of
dairy cattle, horses and poultry.
Messrs. Walsh, on the old "Mexican
Tom" ranch, have certainly made an
excellent stock proposition of the property. They have large areas of pasture all fenced in and a large modern
stock barn well filled with hay. Their
herd of cattle has come through the
winter well and will have a large num-
of beef cattle fit for market in a few
months.
Messrs. Cooke, Ray, Greenstreet and
Aspenwall are all busy on their respective locations, improving their buildings
and executing small repairs.
At Lawn Hill, Mr. Wm. Duncan has
quite a clearing, as well as a commodious barn in which he houses his numerous live stock. Mr. Duncan has been
particularly successful raising oats and
barley and is enthusiastic ever the
island's possibilities as to the growing
of grain.
Mr. Scharff ee has a commodious hotel
at LaWn Hill, where weary travellers
are well looked after by Mrs. Scharff ee.
The proprietor is a busy man, and besides the hotel runs a general store, as
well as being postmaster, and needless
to say does well in every position.
After Lawn Hill is reached there are
numerous ranches in the making every
half mile/and it is interesting to note
the optimistic strain everyone talks in
upon interrogation by a stranger.
There are several locations on which
a large amount of work has been done,
but notably that of Mr. Brown's being
the best in the district.
A few miles further and the wireless
station is reached, at what is known as
Dead Tree Point. Here is located
Canada's furthest west wireless station,
which is operated by Mr. Hillier. The
location is a very pretty one. The
grounds are neat and tidy and the buildings in keeping with the other stations
of the Dominion Government on the
Pacific Coast.
At Hydah, Mr. W. J. Leary has a
very fine location, and as well as being
postmaster, has a general store, in which
he carries a very complete stock. His
exhibits at the Prince Rupert exhibition
carried off a large number of first prizes,
a testimony of the productiveness of the
soil of that district.
At Skidegate the B. C. Fisheries have
improved and added to the oilworks,
giving this settlement quite a business
look with their freshly painted buildings.
The B. C. Fisheries have also a large
plant aeross the inlet at Aliford Bay,
and it is expected that operations will
be resumed before long.
Mrs. Fraser is proprietrix of the
Skidegate hotel, which to the weary
travellers of years gone by, used to be
an old haven of rest, and we are glad
to say that it is still so under Mrs.
Fraser's careful management.
At Queen Charlotte City a large
amount of development has taken place
and the numerous stores, workshops and
residences give the "city" quite a
metropolitan appearance.
Mr. W. J. Smith is proprietor of the
Hotel Premier, and anyone in search of
a fine quiet holiday could not do better
than pay this popular hostelry a visit.
/Postmaster Geo. D. Beattie is proprietor of the Queen Charlotte Department Drug Store, which is as up-to-date
as any to be found in the province/ Mr.
Beattie has a large and varied stock of
goods, suitable to the needs of the
islanders, and the large business he does
is well deserved.
Queen Charlotte has other stores conducted by Messrs. Cochrane, Sachs and
Barge, who all do a thriving business.
The development of the last four
years on the east and south end of
Graham Island has been extensive, and
to one who has been away that time,
has to be seen to be appreciated. Considering that the whole of this country
was a virgin forest four years ago, and
today we find the thriving settlements
of Tl-el, Lawn Hill, Hydah and Queen
Charlotte City, all having areas of
cleared land which is producing wonderfully. The pioneers of the above mentioned districts are to be congratulated
upon the zeal and earnestness in which
they have done their work, and we feel
that the reward which is due to them
will be more felt as the years roll on.

Successful Band
Concert At Skidegate
The Skidegate Concert Band, under
the leadership of Mr. A. Solomon, gave
a very successful concert on Friday,
Jan. 23rd. The hall was tastefully
decorated with evergreens and bunting
and the large audience listened attentively to the first three items on the
programme, which were rendered by
the band in a very praiseworthy manner.
Miss Mabel Crosby then gave a recitation, "The Lost Chord," in a most
creditable manner, and the applause
she received was well merited. Mr. H.
Green followed with an illustrated song,
"Break the news to Mother," which
was well rendered. Mrs. Wesley then
gave a very fine rendering of "Just
next door," which the audience applauded very warmly. The event of
the evening, which seemed to be appreciated very much by the Indian
audience, was " Pochahontas." Miss
Crosby acted the part of the heroine
with excellent taste, and Mr. Jones
played the part of the hero with admirable precision. Mrs. Crosby gave a
very excellent rendering of "If this
rose told you all it knows," and had to
respond to an encore. Messrs. Solomon,
Green, Watson and Moodey gave "Good
Old Jeff'' in costume, and the applause
they got was well merited. "Arizona
Joe," partner and Chink, gave a very
clever sketch, which in itself was well
worth seeing. A very fine solo was
given by Mrs. Gladstone, "Some day
I'll wander back again," and the pleasing manner in which she rendered this
fine song brought forth a volume of applause which she richly deserved. The
"darkey" quartette brough up the
rear with "Camp Town Race, which
they gave in true southern style and
well deserved the encore, which they
responded to promptly.
Mr. H. E. Green thanked the white
people and Indians for their presence
there that evening, and announced that
a dance would follow and any who cared
to stay would be made welcome.
A large number availed themselves of
the invitation and the band, conducted
by Mr. Solomon, dispersed first-class
music. Dancing was kept up until 2.30
a.m., when supper was served in good
style and thoroughly enjoyed. Before
leaving everyone present expressed
themselves as having enjoyed the evening thoroughly, and a great deal of the
credit is due to Mr. Solomon for his untiring efforts in bringing the artistes to
such a state of perfection.
