A claim for $7000 balance on the purchase of stock in the Graham Island
Collieries, which is being met by a
counterclaim for $91,000 for commission
alleged to be due on a sale he arranged
of the company's property, is being
fought out in the Supreme Court, Vancouver. Mr. John McLeod is the defendant to the suit and the claimant to
the large sum for commission. He
claims that he introduced a prospective
purchaser for the company's 32,000
acres, a Mr. Hoare, who was prepared
to give $1,000,000 for the property.
The defence to the counterclaim is
that McLecd was not an agent, but
only the holder of an option and that
Mr. Hoave was not willing or able to
purchase but wished to enter the transaction on a speculative basis.
Stockholders Oppose  Liquidation

QUEEN CHARLOTTE, B.C.
The shareholders of the British Pacific Coal Company plaeed two of their
number on the board of directors to
represent them in the proposed sale of
their holdings to a new company, at a
meeting held recently in Vancouver.
The resignation of Capt. W. W. Irwin
and Mr. W. G. McMorris from the
directors' board were accepted, and Mr.
T. A. Lamb of Vancouver and Mr. John
Reid of New Westminster were put on
the board in their place.
The offer of the new company which
has a proposed capitalization of $5,000,-
000 was gone into clause by clause, and
it was finally decided to table it and
leave it to the new board of directors.
The meeting was adjourned from December 21, when it had been proposed
by the directors to go into liquidation
before selling out. The shareholders
strenuously opposed this move and at
the la3t meeting they succeeded in having the motion shelved. Mr. T. R.
Morrow occupied the chair. Only one
director, Mr. Grant, was present.

Mr. Harrison's article on the Legends

week.
The B. C. Fisheries trawler Triumph
arrived Wednesday night from Prince
Rupert.
Nels Larsen and Charlie Golden left
on Tuesday for Kootenay Harbor, on
the west coast of Moresby Island, on a
prospecting trip.
The Westholme Lumber Company,
who had the contract for installing the
big fertilizer plant for the B. C. Fisheries
at Aliford Bay, completed the job last
week.
"By the time our transcontinental line is completed at the
end of 1914, we will have steamships ready to commence operating between Prince Rupert and
the Orient. We will also have
liners on the Atlantic, connecting our eastern terminus with
European ports. It is also likely
that our coasting fleet will be
substantially increased by that
time."
The speaker was W. P. Hin-
ton, general passenger agent of
the Grand Trunk Pacific, of
Winnipeg, being interviewed by
the Victoria Times.
Mr. Hinton said at the present time the company had no
plans for additional steamers for
the coasting trade. As the business on this coast demands, the
G. T. P. will increase its fleet.
The company is looking for a
great increase in business between Victoria, Vancouver and
Prince Rupert this spring, but
believe they will have snfficient
vessels to cope with the trade.
The new transcontinental line
will not be ready for the operating of through trains until the
end of next year. By that time
the G. T. P. hopes to have the
big shipbuilding plant and 20,-
000 ton floating drydock at Prince
Rupert completed and also the
Pacific and Great Eastern railway, which will break from the
main line at Fort George and
run into Vancouver,
Mr. Hinton said that on the
eastern division trains are now
operating as far into Brisish
Columbia as Tete Jaune Cache.
The business on the line as far
as Edmonton is very heavy and
many people are making the
trip to have a look at the Rockies.
The death occurred on Thursday night
at the Indian village of Mrs. James
Jones. Deceased was about 30 years
of age and suffered from tuberculosis.

Prologue
By Frank Messedat.
Spoken on opening of the concert at
Queen Charlotte City, given for the
benefit of the widows and orphans of
Percy Graham and Fred Newman, who
came from Grimsby, England, four
months ago, and drowned while fishing
at Aliford Bay, January 15th, 1913.
Wherever Britain's enterprise and zeal
and zest,
Tends  to development in Colonies—
to British hearts so dear—
She sends her ships, and from her sons,
the very best—
The    bravest,   faithful,   and    most
courageous pioneer.
Two  ships from  Grimsby sailed, * not
long ago;
To    Canada,   Aliford   Bay,    Pacific
Coast—this was the order.
Great Britain on the sea!   She has no
frontier and no border;
And well the world may to this fact
forever bow.
Oh, what a lovely day!   How beautiful
the strand;
How many greeting children, women,
parents, friends;
The "Canada" and "Triumph," stately
trawlers, sailed for foreign lands;
This was Grimsby's most eventful of
events.
Here were young husbands—fathers—
trying hard
To keep a cheerful face, and say
good bye—
To  wife  and  children,   parents,   and
many an old pard.
Oh, farewell scenes! Where hearts are
bleeding; tears in many, many eyes.
And then,   what is  Old England's joy
resource,
Especially Grimsby, here as scene of
gladness ?
It was the happy message, delivered in
due course,
Dispelling every cause of anxiety and
sadness.
Both ships, in spite of storms and heavy
seas,
Arrived safely here,   on Columbia's
Graham Isle;
The mothers to the  little ones, once
more, with sunny smile
Could say:   "Your daddy soon will
send, now sure, for you and me."
Alas ! One evening, in a tiny little boat,
Two boys, with hook  and bait, not
many yards from shore,
Went fishing—as they often used to do
abroad—
One cry for help went up, and then-
was heard no more.
In vain,   the  friends rushed  out, and
every craft
Was speedily manned and rushing to
the scene;
The little skiff was floating gently as a
raft.
Fred  Newman,   never,   never more,
was seen.
This way, my lads!   This is the  very
spot!
A sound rang out like prayer through
evening stillness;
Here is the line, and here—so help me,
God-
Here is our friend Graham, our hopes
fullfillness.
Now, quick ashore! and busy, skillful
hands
Were  fighting  hours, to hear again
his heart a-beating.
Alas!  in vain;  "too late;"   to  other
happier lands
His  soul  was  bound—to Heaven he
was speeding!
Oh! What a dreadful fate; we hear it
every day ;
Those men were braving ocean after
ocean; fearless
They brought their ships through storms
and gales—and steerless
An  empty skiff  drifts slowly to the
shore on Aliford Bay.
Oh,   God!   comfort   the   widows   and
bereaved orphans dear;
The Lord was always good to fishermen so brave;
And resurrection day  will open  wide
their lonely grave
In glory,   to  the true  and  faithful
British pioneer.
The weather has been very severe
since the New Year opened. A high
wind created havoc with small craft
and residences. No serious results followed. It was reported that an earthquake was felt at Massett; but many
are of the opinion that it was an extra
puff of wind, with a little Scotch mixed
up in a New Year nightmare, that
struck and oscilated a few of the late
"go-to-sleeps" and the "headachy"
early risers.
Four  new townsites are now on the
market  on  Massett Inlet, named Del-
katla,   New Massett, Sewell  City and
Graham Centre.     The nearest, via the
trail, to Queen Charlotte City, is  the
ambitious   town   of   Graham   Centre,
where a store and post office is located.
In a short time Queenstown will be on
the market, making a fifth competitor
for township honors.   The Seventh Day
Adventists have constructed a sawmill
at Sewell City, on the west side of the
inlet
Coal drillers and surveyors have closed
down their work and left for outside
places. No news has leaked out as to
the operations conducted by the drillers.
All of the work has been of a prospective nature, from which results will be
known this year. It has heen stated
by reliable parties that work will be
resumed on all plants in the early spring.

A Pancake Party.
A jolly party was held at the boarding house (Mrs. Scowcroft's) on Tuesday night. The old time custom of
tossing the pancake was indulged in
which created great amusement. Prof.
Solomon proved himself the most adept
and was awarded the prize. Songs and
dancing helped greatly towards the
evening's enjoyment, and before leaving coffee and cake were served.

Jim Oliver and Ed. Anderson left
during the week on a trapping expedition to the west coast of Graham Island.
A Japanese was knocked into the

after from the effects of his injuries.
The body was interred at Massett,
where an inquest was held.

Captain Heater, with the gasoline
schooner Jessie, one of the old sealing
vessels, returned to Victoria from
Hecate Straits with a small catch of
halibut. The weather was so boisterous that Capt. Heater decided to give
up the attempt of fishing.
One hundred Indians met at Vancouver recently and discussed the Indian
land question. Rev. Peter Kelly, formerly of Skidegate, represented the
Haidas, and was elected a member of
the executive committee of the Indian
Rights Association.
Robert Stanley, of Massett, walked
over Mexican Tom's trail from Massett
to Skidegate and returned during the
week. He reports that the trail was in
splendid condition during the cold
weather. He carried a message to the
wireless station from Langara island.
F. Panvini, who returned from the
west coast of Graham Island recently,
exhibited in Prince Rupert a large piece
of paraffin wax which he picked up
among the rocks. It was part of a
piece weighing about six pounds. Mr.
Panvini is interested in several oil propositions on the west coast.
F. Nash and bride, accompanied by
Mr. and Mrs. C. Harrison, left for the
south on the Prince John. While at
Prinee Rupert the newly wedded couple
were entertained at a dinner in the
Central Hotel.
Messrs. Adam & McQuaker of Graham
Centre, are disposing of town lots at

Eli Tingley, one of Graham Island's
earliest settlers and proprieter of the
Yakoun Hotel at Queenstown, came
over Mexican Tom's trail to Queen
Charlotte last week and went out on
the Prince John. Mr. Tingley says that
a large number of settlers will locate
in the vicinity of Mayer Lake and
Queenstown this spring.
The steamer Prince Albert made a
special trip to Massett for the purpose
of delivering the mail, which was forgotten on the regular mail day. The
hundreds of settlers were very much
disappointed when the regnlar steamer
appeared without the mail, after waiting three weeks for Christmas and
New Year correspondence. Several
residents accompanied a petition to the
authorities, which caused the sending
of a special boat on the following week.
The B. C. Oilfields Limited, who are
drilling for oil on the west coast at
