Wm. Manson, M.P.P., Got
Splendid Reception on Islands
Travelled From One End of the Island to the Other and Addressed Several
Meetings at Inlet Settlements.
Delkatlah Gardens Case    Inspector On Visit
Mr. Wm. Manson, M.P.P., accompanied by government agent E. M.
Sandilands and John Manson, road superintendent, arrived on the Polaris last
Sunday evening from upper inlet points,
after completing a tour of all the settlement on Graham Island, excepting the
Tow Hill district. The party left Queen
Charlotte City the previous Wednesday
and came up the East coast road to Tl-
El River, thence across the Mexican
Tom trail to Queenstown and Graham
The purpose of the visit was the planning of the work to be done this year
on roads and trails, and also of the
Member giving an account of his
stewardship of the past session.
Mr. Manson addressed meetings at
Graham Centre, Queenstown and Massett and also conferred with the settlers
at other points.
On Monday morning the party left for
Woden district and spent the day there,
returning to MaBsett in the evening.
Previous to the public meeting in the
schoolhouse, the Member conferred with
the Central Executive, when several
important matters were diecussed.
There was a large attendance in the
Massett schoolhouse, including several
ladies, when Mr.Chas. Harrison, S.M.,
called the meeting to order.
Mr. Harrison in the course of a splendid speech, nicely spiced with humour,
touched on various local matters in a
straight forward manner, which were
heartily endorsed by the audience.
Mr. Manson, in his opening remarks,
paid a glowing tribute to the memory
of the late Rev. Wm. Hogan, afterwards referring to his trip from Queen
Charlotte City up along the east coast
to Hydah, Lawn Hill (where the party
visited the experimental station in
charge of Mr. Richardson), and Tl-El
River, Graham Centre, Queenstown,
Sewall, Nadu and Woden. Since the
House closed, the Member said he had
been on the go all the time and before
coming to the islands had visited all
along the line of the G. T. P. as far as
Smithers. Mr. Manson then spoke at
some length on local affairs. Referring
to the road asked for between Tl-El and
Queenstown, Mr. Manson said that it
meant a big expenditure to build such
a road as proposed, and at the present
time he was not in favor of that being
done. The policy of the Government
had always been to follow the settlers,
and as there were only a few settlers at
each end of the trail, the time was not
ripe for the building of such a road.
He also referred to the proposed bridge
at Kumdis narrows. With regard to
the road work, Mr. Manson said there
had been a lot of criticism, not only regarding the word done in the Skeena
district, but all over the Province. He
liked criticism when it was honest and
fair, because it would always bring
about better results. Regarding the
East coast road between Tl-El River
and Skidegate, there was a lot said, but
he could assure them that the road there
was not as bad as what it was said to
be. During the past winter a team was
kept at work gravelling the road, which
has made a great improvement. This
year they proposed {putting a team at
work on the roads at this end of the
island and he was sure the same good
results would follow. Mr. Manson made
reference to the good work accomplished
on the road at Woden last season. With
regard to the question of plank roads he
thought it too expensive a proposition.
Mr. Manson then touched on Municipal
Incorporation and was in favor of such
a scheme when the time was ripe.
Thereafter the Member gave an account
of the work done in the Legislature
during the past session, reviewing the
most important measures, such as the
Timber Royalty Bill, the C. N. Railway
Bill, and others. He also referred to
the Royal Commissions on labor and
agriculture, and said that legislation
would be enacted at next session. Before concluding, Mr. Manson made reference to the forthcoming Redistribution Bill, and advised the Islanders to
get busy if they wanted a member of
their own. He thanked them for their
support in the past, and whether he
would represent them in the next assembly or another constituency, he would
always do what he could for the islands.
The Chairman then asked if there
were any questions, and on none forthcoming,
Mr. James Martin proposed a hearty
vote of thanks to Mr. Manson for his
address and his services in the Legislature.
Mr. E. Baker seconded, and on being
put by the Chairman to the meeting
was unamiously carried.
Mr. Mansoa briefly replied and proposed a vote of thanks to the worthy
Chairman, which was seconded in several
places. With the singing of God Save
The King the meeting closed.
There is an old story that a million
aire commissioned  an  artist  to  paint
two pictures, one to be of a man v< ho
had won a law suit, and the other of a
man who had lost one.
In a month the artist returned with
a picture of a naked man and another
picture of a man with a shirt on. But,
said the millionaire, I told you to paint
a picture of a man who had won a law
suit, and one of a man who had lost one.
That's it said the artist, the man with
nothing on has lost a law suit, and the
man with the shirt on has won one.
We are reminded of this by the case
that has just dragged a whole week
through the Prince Rupert County
Court, known there as the Delkatlah
Gardens Case, im which C. C. Carter
sued Chas. M. Wilson for a total sum
of $1,112.15, for alleged work performed. The final decision of Judge
Young was a verdict of $62.10 for C. C.
Carter, but as Wilson has a balance due
on a note against Carter of $162, for
which the Judge held he must take
separate"action, the net result is that
Mr. Carter loses $100, over if he had
not gone to law, and Mr. Wilson loses
the costs of the case.
The defence was that the sum demanded had already been paid out to
the extent of $1254 to Carter and to
people hired by him to fulfil the contract, but many of these payments
were disallowed as not having Carter's
0. K. Wilson also set up a counter
claim for $1000 damages for loss of the
crop by flood as late as the 29th Nov.,
maintaining it should have been all
harvested by that time, according to
the terms of the contract, but this was
We understand that Mr Wilson is
appealing the costs, as there was a
clause in the agreement compelling
arbitration, which Judge Young held to
be quite vaild. He claims he was forced
into Court, as Carter refused to arbitrate.
Alex. Johnson, the Nadu postmaster,
was in town during the week.
James Martin left Friday for Queenstown to continue work on his ranch.

traveller, is spending a week here on

Massett, B.C., Saturday, April 25,1914
The visit of our local representative
in the Provincial Legislature was
auspicious and far-reaching, and a
heartv welcome was given him by his
many friends at the various points on
the isiand. He took the opportunity to
travel from one end of Graham Island
to the other, and viewed the improvements and progress made by the settlers
since his visit last year. We feel sure
that Mr. Manson appreciated the visit
as much as the people he met, and went
away with a good impression. Hiscon-
stituer.cy covers a large territory, but
he manages to pay periodical visits, and
thoroughly understands the difficulties
and hardships some of the settlers have
in building up homes for their families.
Whatever may have been said, we feel
sare that lie has done his best to alleviate those conditions by securing larger
appropriations for roads, trails, schools
and hospitals. Mr. Manson assured the
members of the local hospital board
that the appropriation of $2000 was
available as soon as the building was
commenced. Although the appropriations for roads and trails have been
greatly reduced in all districts in the
Province this year, Mi-. Manson managed
to get the Government to deal gently
with Skeena, with the result that we
are not so badly off in that respect.
Work will be started on the roads and
trails within the next week or two and
efficiency is the w©rd that has been impressed on the bosses and foremen from
now on. We can't expect to get all we
want at once, and to have things done
in a day, a week, or a year. Nevertheless, since the time William Manson became our Member, there has been a
wonderful development on Graham

which there were rumours. He humourously referred to Atlin as being the tail
of a very large dog, if such a thing was
proposed. The Judge certainly hit it
off fine, and as far as Atlin is concerned,
will have to curl its tail nearer home.
Chairman Harrison got off a very good
joke at Monday night's meeting. It
had reference to whether the Islands
should be linked up with Atlin in the

A resident of Massett tackled a windfall recently on Collison Avenue, opposite the Anglican church. He commenced to saw the cordwood about
twenty feet from the butt. At noon he
went to lunch, and returned to
discover that something had happened.
A police officer was passing when
the wood chopper was looking for
"signs" along the road. On inquiry, he was informed that someone had walked off with the morning's
work. On looking up among the trees,
it was discovered that the roots had
drawn the tree back to its original
position, and the strange sight can be
seen of a tree standing with the marks
of the cross-cut saw twenty feet above
the ground.

On Saturday afternoon Wm. Manson,
M.P.P., visited Graham Centre, accompanied by John Manson, road supt., E.
M. Sandilands, govt, agent, and Chas.
Spence, road forman. After having
made a tour of the townsite and expressed surprise at the large amount of
development since their last visit, the
party proceeded to the hall, where a
large number of residents and settlers
from Mayer Lake and Kumdis were assembled. Mr. O'Flynn, president of
the Settlers' League, presided, and Mr.
Felix Graham, the secretary, was in
attendance, as well as 26 members.
Mr. Manson briefly stated the object
of visit, and expressed a desire to hear
the views of the settlers regarding their
requirements for roads and trails for
this year.
The Secretary of the League was
therefore called upon to read a copy of
the petitions which had been sent in to
Mr. Manson last fall. The principal
item being the extension of the Mayer
Lake road to  the  government  wnarf.
Considerable discussion took place upon this question and a large number of
settlers from different districts expressed their opinion that the route of
this road should be via Kumdis Bay
narrows, which necessitates the building
of a bridge at that point.
Mr. T. L. Williams spoke strongly in
favor of this route and moved that the
government be asked to build the road
via the narrows. This motion was
seconded by Mr. James Allison, and
carried unanimously.
Messrs. A. D. Burton, Wm. Tunnah,
F. G. Taylor, J. McDougall, H. McLellan and H. J. Rowell spoke for their
respective districts.
Mr. Manson then addressed the meeting and stated that he aypreciated the
frank manner which the different
settlers had expressed their views, and
said that as the road appropriations for
this year had been cut in half, he would
do his utmost to meet their requests.
After having answered several questions regarding experimental farms,
municipal incorporation, agricultural
commission, etc., Mr. Manson was
thanked for his address on motion of
Mr. C. M. Adam.
A hearty vote of thanks to the Chairman concluded the meeting.

What's the matter with you
Pessimists 1
If you knew as much as I do about the future of Delkatlah Bay
you would be chasing me up with payments on your lots.
The farming may be a little slow in developing, and the coal seams
hard to trace in paying quantities, but Delkatlah ia on the eve of development as a Winter Tourist Resort which will place it only second to Prinee
Rupert in Northern British Columbia.
I am not a prophet, for such prophecy only requires the application of
ordinary common sense.
Buying lots in Delkatlah is like sowing seed—the money disappears like
the seed in the ground only to spring up and yield ten fold.
Canada needs no summer resort, it has all the summer climate it wants,
but from Nova Scotia to the Rockies it needs a winter climate, and that's
what we have. The Spring is the time to sow seed. Sow your wages in a
lot at the rate of $5.00 a month and have a home in town.
Immediately back of Delkatlah pre-emptions are being taken up at the
rate of ten a week.   That will soon increase values.

The lease will include the coal mining
rights only, but the lessee may be permitted to purchase whatever available
surface rights maybe considered necessary f©r the working of the mine at the
rate of $10.00 an acre.
For full information application should
be made to the Secretary of the Department of the Interior, Ottawa, or to any
Agent or Sub-Agent of Dominion Lands.
