District News Items
WODEN
We are pleased to welcome Mr. and
Mrs. Hibbert among the new settlers
at the Woden.
It begins to look farm like around
these parts. Messrs. McCall and Dill
having lately brought in a fine team of
horses, and are preparing to break
ground 6oon.
The settlers of this district have
passed the experimental age, the soil
by actual test has made good. Proof
of this can  be found by visiting Fritz
Rampmier, Fred Gedhun, Frank Port-
more, Roscoe Rupe, George Vaughn,
Wren & Son, Wm. Hudson, Paul Sanders and Dan Sutherland. These gentlemen were among' the first pre-emptors
here and by their industry and practical
•work have laid.an agricultural foundation that should encourage the rapid
building up of natural resources to be
found here. Come ye skeptics, and see.
John Abrahamson has joined the
working force of .Hazelton & Campbell,
boat builders. This department of
Woden industry is certainly prospering.
Yellow cedar sawdust fills the air at
times and the entire floor space of the
building, 90 x.JsO, is crowded with rush
order specials. That the local public
know how to appreciate a good thing is
noted by the number of orders that this
enterprising firm have been receiving
of late.
The plumbing and sheet iron department of the Woden industries, under
the management of Mr. Watson, is prospering. Work ;going out to Tingley
Bros, at Queenstown, and for jail equipment at Massett.
Henry Holland, who has the building
of the Harrison dwellings at Queenstown, came home for a few days this
week.
We are glad to be able to report that
Mr. McDougall is rapidly improving in
health. However, through it all, he has
been the same happy, good hearted
Martin. He is the guest of Mr. and
Mrs. Campbell.
GRAHAM CENTRE
The executive committee of the Debating Club met on Monday afternoon
to arrange who should take papers at
the next club meeting, and also to transact other important business.
The ladies of the townsite held a
meeting last week to make arrangements for the Xmas and- New Year
festivities. Great enthusiasm was
shown and a splendid programme has
been drawn up, consisting of dances,
dinners, and a monster Xmas Tree for
the children. A committee has been
appointed to carry out the final arrangements.
Divine service was held in the Anglican Church on Sunday at 11 a.m., the
Rev. H. H. K. Greene officiating.
Mr. McQuaker is spending a day or
two up at his ranch getting things in
shape before going on the outside.
Mr. and Mrs. Bert Millard received a
surprise packet Monday night when a
large number of friends from tha surrounding district descended on them.
With dancing and games a most enjoyable evening was spent.
The Graham Centre Debating Club
held its first social last Saturday evening. The Rev. H. H. K. Greene presided. The programme, which was a
marked success, was divided in two
parts, the first consisting of instrumental music and songs, and the second of
games, in which all present took part.
The programme opened with a brief
address by the Chairman, in which he
outlined the objects of the society and
extended a hearty welcome to the
members and friends. He expressed a
hope that they would thoroughly enjoy
themselves and stated that entertainments on a similar plan would be held
every two weeks, at which he hoped he
would have the pleasure of meeting
them all again. Mr. Greene then announced a duet by Miss Adam and Capt.
MacTavish, which was well received by
the audience. The second item on the
programme was a song composed by
Miss Adam, which was conceded to be
the star event of the evening. It was
entitled "An Islander," and showed
what the inventive genuis of a Graham
Island settler could accomplish with a
eoal oil can. Mils Adam rendered her
song in a manner which "brought down
the house," and great credit is due her
for the spleadid result she achieved.
Rev. Mr. Green then sang some old
favorites which took well, the audience
joining in the chorus. Capt. MacTavish
followed with a comic song, which was
Reported Big Seam
Of Coal Discovered
At Camp Wilson
A report has reached town to the
effect that a 24 ft. seam of coal has
been discovered at Camp Wilson. During the past few months a number of
men have been engaged prospecting
the property, which, we understand, is
cnntrolled by a New York company,
and which was formerly in the hands of
the Western Steel Corporation. So far
we have been unable to verify the report, which was brought down from the
camp by a local man, who also stated
that the seam had been traced for over
half a mile.
Many years ago coal was discovered
at Camps Robertson and Wilson, but
nothing was done, with the exception
of sinkirig a shaft, to prove up the coal
measures to any extent until this year.
The report, if true, will mean much for
Queenstown, being less than thirty miles
distant from the camp and the natural
base for getting supplies in.
-o
An enjoyable time was spent on
Saturday night at Mrs. E. J. Tingley's
residence, where the members of the
Tennis Club held a potato bake.
Work was started this week on the
construction of a pool room and hall for
W. F. Hastie. ^he building will be 30
x 32, two storey. The ground floor will
be used as the pool room arra the second
floor as a hall. Mr. Hastie will also
erect a two storey six-roomed house.
The buildings will be completed and occupied before Christmas.
Messrs. W. J. Leary and J. Walsh
arrived here Monday night from the
East coast, coming over the Mexican
Tom trail. The purpose of their visit
was to interest settlers and others of the
benefits to be derived from municipal
incorporation. A well attended meeting
was held in the hotel Tuesday night,
when Mr. Leary fully explained the-
Municipal Act and how the Islands
would benefit by incorporation, of which
we will have more to say next week.
loudly applauded. Refreshments were
next in order and the dainty things
served by the ladies gladdened more
than the heart of a lonely rancher.
After a short interval the second part
of the programme was entered upon,
which was composed of games. The
first was an " Observation Table," followed by "Who am I," and a picture
guessing competition. A most enjoyable evening was brought to a close
with the singing of "Auld Lang Syne."
Fishery Cruiser Gannet
Visits Queenstown
Appropriately enough the first strange
boat to tie up at the new wharf was the
fishery patrol cruiser Gannet, which
paid her first visit to Queenstown on
Sunday afternoon. A description of
the boat appeared in our columns a few
weeks ago, and bears out what was .aid
at the time.
A number of Massett people were
guests on board Sunday, among whom
were Fishery Officer Harrison, Capt.
and Mrs. Blake, Mrs. Wilson, Miss
Blanchet, Miss Orr, W. Hughes and
Cyril Harrison. The party thoroughly
enjoyed the trip and all spoke highly of
the Gannet's speed qualities.
Capt. John Haan is in command of
the staunch little craft, which left
Skidegate last week, coming up the
west coast to Massett. During the
trip no sign of poachers could be seen.
 o	
Allan Orr was in town Friday from
Massett.
Elder  Wateon, D. A. Hazelton and
«J. Abrahamson were here Monday from
Woden.
Mr. E. Baker of Tow Hill was called
here last week to give attention to the
young man Lehrman, who was very ill,
but we are glad to report is now much
better. Mr. Nash kindly sent the Polaris
for Mr. Baker.
W. L. Barton of the local sawmill has
many orders on hand for lumber for local
people who are building, and is kept
busy meeting demands. Hazel Ion &
Cambpell, the Woden river boat builders,
took away several thousand feet of
cedar boards this week from the mill.

With so many scattered communities
on Graham Island, and no central organization established, there is not the opportunity to bring before the people
many of the requirements of the island.
, Political and other organizations are a
benefit in a manner, and are very useful about election times; but where we
have a large number of men of different
political opinions, there should be one
organization, in which politics could be
tabooed, and where the members look
after the interests of all concerned in
i advancing the Islands. Other communities have an organization of the
nature of a board of trade, which comprize the business men and others interested in the welfare of the district.
At the meetings all matters of impor-
portance are discussed and means taken
to bring before the government the
wants of particular districts. On our
islands such an organization would do
an immense amount of good. Regular
meetings would be held and committess
appointed to look after certain business.
Men of any particular political opinion
would attend the meetings, knowing
I that there would be but one idea, the
1 advancement of the islands. No particular portion would be favored, to the
detriment of the other, and where we
now have individual effort to obtain concessions of any kind, we would have all
working harmoniously.
Good Roads.
From the Globe we learn that the
time has come for Canadians to grapple
effectually and efficiently with the perennial road problem. The solution of
the problem, we are told, will solve
other problems. For instance, "good
roads mean more steady attendance of
children at school through a larger portion of the year. Good roads mean
denser rurual population. Good roads
mean the maintenance of better rural
schools and better rural conditions.
Good roads mean much to the cost of
living struggle in the cities and towns.
Good roads add to the comfort and happiness of the people as well as to their
financial prosperity. Good roads have
considerations not measured by dollars."

Act, which was given assent to by the
governor-general on June 6,1913, makes
it compulsory for every passenger ship
to carry wireless and also a competent
operator.
Many of the steamers now running in
the British Columbia trade are equipped
with wireless, but there are quite a
number which lack this means of communication. The G. T. P. steamers
plying to the Islands have had wireless
communication since they started, four
years ago, but several other steamers
running here are not equipped with instruments. The new regulations will
make those steamers without wireless
come into line and it is not likely that
the Dominion Government will have to
impose any fines for the violation of the
law on this coast at anyrate, as orders
are being placed for machines by several
steamship companies.

Letter To The Editor, f
Sir,—Although I understand the
'' Massett Leader'' has partly atoned for
a recent item which appeared in its
"Woden News," my attention has been
called to the item in question so frequently that I feel that it is due to those
whose characters were reflected upon
to take some public notice of the gratuitous insult conferred upon them.
The " Leader" on September the 4th
referred to the fact that a survey party
was camped "in our midst" at the
Woden River, and proceeded to state
that "The boys are a hard working,
gentlemanly outfit and do not leave the
unsavory impression so frequently associated with logging and survey
camps."
While the latter part of the above
quotation indicates, a perhaps, pardonable ignorance on the part of the correspondent of the "Leader," it surely
is the duty of its editor to censor the
contributions of his reporters and to
obliterate those portions which are unduly discriminating and which are likely to impart ah "unsavory impression "
of fully seventy per cent of the male
residents of the Islands. Fully the above
percentage have at one time or another
been privileged to work either on survey parties or at logging camps.
If the item referred to was meant
merely to indicate that members of survey or logging camps occasionally indulge too freely in the "cup that
cheers," what of it? Are we then so
different from the remainder of mankind. Or were the susceptibilities of
the writer aroused because we occasionally use language unsnited to the drawing room. Again, why discriminate?
when most men, alas, have the same
failing when away from the restraint
of social intercourse.
1 challenge the "Leader" to show
that either class of men mentioned are
any worse than their fellows of other
walks of life. There are black sheep in
every fold, my friend, and
' 'There isso much good in the worst of us
And so much bad in the best of us
That it ill behoves any of us
To talk about the rest of us."
Let me remind the " Leader" that it
takes men to open up a new country,
and although these men have men's
vices as well as their virtues, they are
not to be abused with impunity.
"We aint no city hypocrites,
We aint no blackguards too,
But we're sinful men of the big woods,
Most remarkable like you."
Thanking you, Mr. Editor, for the
space occupied.—Yours faithfully,
F. Nash, B.C.L.S.
