Prince Rupert, Dec. 18.—Tfee gasoline
schooner Edrie reached port safely
after a perilous and thrilling experience
in the waters of Hecate Straits.
The vessel left Aliford Bay last Monday night, shortly afterwards running
into a strong south-east gale. After
buffeting sea some time the engine became disabled, and craft for 38 hours
was swept about at mercy of huge seas.
Crew were kopt at pumps constantly
and to their untiring and strenuous
efforts alone can be ascribed the mir-
acutous escape of vessel from foundering. To add to difficulties the steering
gear gave way and for a time condition
was hopeless a3 roars of breakers could
be heard, but fortunately at this time
engineer and officers were able to re-
pai* engine to bring vessel under way,
just as certain doom seemed about
sealed.
Hearty congratulations $xtended to
Captaiti Haan and crew on safe arrival
here.
The Edrie is one the B. C. Fisheries
fleet and left here to engage in herring
fishing off the mainland coast.

The Prince Rupert Board of Trade
at a meeting held recently discussed
freight and mail matters for up river

Islandb into consideration as well.
British Columbia fruit won the gold
meda! and certificate of merit at the
Royal Horticultural Society's great exhibition at London.
Over a hundred persons were killed in
a terrible tornado at Madagascar, with
a rsultant property loss of over two
million dollars.
Prince Henry of Prussia, brother of
the German Emperor, has arrived in
England on a secret mission.
J. A. Theme, an engineer connected
with the Dominion Telegraphs (Yukon
Branch), arrived in town on Monday
from Massett, coming overland by the
east coast trail. Mr. Thorne was instructed by the Department to look into the matter as to the most feasible
route for a telegraph and telephone connection with the wireless station at
Dead Tree Point from the north end of
the island, and to give an estimate as
to the probable cost of construction.
After going over the ground, the engineer is of the opinion that the most
satisfactory route and the one easiest
to be kept in working order, is a line
running from the wireless station at
Dead Tree Point to Tl-El River, thence
crossing Mexican Tom's trail to Queenstown, and thence along the shore of the
inlet to Massett. This route is less exposed and much shorter than the one
along the east coast. There is not the
least doubt that the line will be built
next year. Mr. Thorne also visited
Aliford Bay with a view to tho linking
up of Sandspit and Aliford Bay with the
telephone line at Skidegate. This will
be done by cable across the inlet. With
the development of tho fishing industry
at Aliford Bay, dire*.;, communication
is necessary with the wireless  station,
and no doubt this branch line will be included in construction work next year.
The line to be built can be use either
for telephone or telegraph purposes.

'•Father," said the small boy, "what
is a four flush? "
' My son, I regret to see that your
researches are assuming unfortunate
tendencies. If you refer to poker, you
are trying to acquire by mere conversation wisdom that can be gained only by
years of experience. If you are refer-
ing to politics, your question is entirely
impertinent."
"The Simple Life" in towns at best
Is just a mere expression,
But if you townsmen lived out West
You'd learn a useful lesson.
So simple is the life we lead
On Charlotte's lonely isles,
We have to pack our simple feed
Upon our backs for miles.
Our friends are mostly those who dwell
Five thousand miles away,
And letters posted to Tl-el
Don't get there overy day.
And from my humble cabin door,
Through muskegs and through slush,
And over beaches many more
Long miles I have to mush.
And when I reach the local store
I'm greeted with a smile ;
The "grub*' wont get here till next boat,
W{*Uh will bexmite a while.
Oh, Simple Life ! my aching back
Is nearly dislocated
With packing sugar in a sack ;
Life's better complicated.

The Jambs Oa Tke Yakoun River.
A correspondent draws our attention
to tbe jambs on the Yakoun river and
thinks that the Dominion Government
should finish the job begun by the late
government. Three years ago an appropriation of $10,000 was passed for
the cleaning out of this river, but we
are not sure whether all the money wa3
expended or hot. Anyhow the work
should be continued until the river is
completely cleared so that navigation
would be possible. An appropriation
in next year's estimates would be appreciated by those using the river to
get to their locations. A number of
coal concerns operating in that vicinity
found the water-way was the only
practical way whereby they could get
their drills and supplies in, although
they were hindered by jambs, which
they had cleared away at their own
expense.
Oni&ES Are The Thing:
"If you want to live to a ripe, happy,
old age, and incidentally to accumulate
real money, eat baked onions. They
are good for the complexion, for the
liver, and to give you a disposition
whereby you can beat the money sharks
at their own game." These wise words
were uttered by Hetty Green, the richest woman in the world, on her seventy-
eighth birthday. Health, weajth and
strength attend the consumer of this
nourishing vegetable, and Hetty's advice and onions should bring tears of
gratitnde to the eye.

Important Test Case
As To Foreshore Rights
According to information received by
Mr. G. R. T. Sawle, of Prince Rupert,
the application for foreshore rights at
Granby Bay is to be made the subject
of a test case between the Dominion
and Provincial governments.
Both governments claim the jurisdiction over the waterfront and shore line
in the recently developed harbors, of
this coast.
According to the . Provincial Government its jurisdiction over lands extends
to and covers all that land left bare at
low tide, while the Federal authorities
claim that under the British North
America Act of 1867, and its ratification
when this province entered the federation, they have complete control of all
waterfront in the harbors of the coast.
While admitting that the older cities,
such as Victoria and Vancouver come
under the meaning of the British North
America Act, the province claims that
harbors such as Prince Rupert and
others opened within the past few years
do not do so.
As things exist at present applications and plans for improvement of the
foreshore, which under the protection of
Navigation Act must receive the sanction
of the Federal authorities, must be accompanied with a Dominion foreshore
lease, while it is reported that the Provincial land registry office will not register Dominion foreshore leases.
If the Dominion case is sustained by
the government the major portions of
the waterfront in most of the northern
harbors will have to be re-applied for,
and considerable litigation will result.
Mr.   Sawle's   application,   which   to
make sure of his ground, he made to
both governments, was chosen as the
test case by Attorney-General Bowser
of British Columbia and Minister of
Marine and Fisheries Hazen, at their
recent conference at Ottawa.

Missionary Steamer Had Long Trip.
The Methodist missionary steamer
Thomas Crosby is back in Vancouver
harbor after a 3,000 mile trip on which
she started three months ago. Captain
Oliver says that the new steamer did
splendid work throughout the trip.
Rev. G. H. Raley, president of the
British Columbia Methodist conference,
was in charge during the northern run
and after reaching Port Simpson and
visiting the Naas the steamer made a
trip to the Queen Charlotte Islands,
and while here Rev. Mr. Raley left her
and Rev. Dr. Spencer assumed charge.
Afterwards she visited points on Moresby Island. During her trip she visited
all the isolated settlements and lighthouses.

HAIDAS AND THEIR LEGENDS
(Continued from page 3)
turning of a slave to his own people
was a very profitable investment.   Another custom that existed amongst the
Haidas was what may be termed the
mouse ceremony.    This related to the
supposed wisdom of mice.   Formerly if
a person were taken ill and not wishing
to call in the services of the devil doctor,
the father of the sick person tried a bit
of making medicine for himself.     He
would turn all his goods and chattels
out of doors and then catch a mouse to
instruct hire where he could find the
person who had been or was the cause
of his child's illness.   Having caught a
mouse he put it into a «mall box and
gave it plenty of grease to keep it alive.
For three days the person who was
thus  engaged  abstained  from   food.
Every morning with his box and mouse
he went down to the salt water and
drank a quart thereof, and then returned
and threw himself down on his bed with
the box and mouse underneath his pillow
and went to sleep.     He was supposed
to sleep through the day and night, and
sentinels were placed around his house
to prevent anyone from disturbing him.
In the morning he got up again and
took his box and mouse down to the sea,
and again he drank his quart of salt
water and returned to his bed.  This he
did for three consecutiue days.   If during this   time  he  imagined  or  even
dreamed that an invisible  world individual had appeared to him and revealed
the name of any man, woman, or child
he at once believed it, and away he went
to the person whose name had as he
imagined had been mentioned and demanded to know the reason why he or
she had made his children unwell.     He
also demanded heavy payment of blankets as a peace-offering, and the restoration of his child to health.   Supposing
that the salt water drinker had been
unfortunate in his dreams, after the
third day was ended he would take the
mouse in his hand and enter into every
house and hold the mouse in front of
every person until he found who had
b'een the cause of his child's sickness.
If the mouse should bow his head in a
peculiar manner twice before any man,
woman or child, the old people verily
believed that the mouse had revealed
the culprit who had caused the person's
illness.   The man demanded heavy payment and the restoration to health of
the sick person.

Results Are Satisfactory
Wilfrid Doughty, managing
director of the B, C. Fisheries,
Limited, informs the Victoria
Colonist that one satisfactory result of the company's operations
has been the discovery that the
waters off the Queen Charlotte
islands contains both soles a<ad
plaice in every respect equal to
those found in the waters ou the
coast of England. He points out
that this will mean a decided addition to the fish supply of the
large cities throughout Canada,
and together with the company's
large halibut catch, will do a
good deal to solve the problem of
the cost of living.
"The fishermen whom we
have brought out/' says Mr.
Doughty, "have rapidly become
accustomed to climatic conditions, which do not vary much
i'rorn those they are used to in
the North sea, and so far we
have not had a single complaint
from them. We will probably
brmg out another party of English a?td Scotch fishermen next
spring. The reports sent home
by these men we have brought
out ar^ such as to satisfy their
friends at home, and as a result
we have hundreds of applications
from first class men to come out
io British Columbia. This will
enable us to co-operate with the
government in making the fishing industry a white man's occupation."
