Array Queen Charlotte Islan

OUR CLIMATE.
The oldest settler in the Northern
country, who has pioneered in British
Columbia for fifty-three years, accounts
for the mild climate by referring to the
volcanic disturbances, which recently
took place in Alaska, and the fact that
the winter cannot be relied on, in any
country, where changes are so sudden.
" We have heard a great deal," said
Indian Agent Deasy, "of the mildness
of our winters ; but it must be remembered that there has been many changes
in fifty years. An old resident studies
the many signs of approaching winter,
and has a very good idea of the conditions in a country where he has resided for so many years. In the early
days of British Columbia, the climate
was not like it has been fpr the last
twenty years. During the early sixties
the Fraser river was frozen over almost
every winter, and remained closed for
a month. I have seen four feet of snow
in Victoria, and three months of cold
weather. During one winter, the glass
registered eight below zero, for anight.
In the winter of 1879 the people of San
Francisco had a snowstorm. It has
been usual for people to aver that the
Japan current has a lot to do with the
change in our climate from what it was
long ago. I favor more the matter of
warm winds we receive from the southeast. It is s id that the Indian is the
best judge of weather; but they are a
people who live from day to day, without records of the changes the years
bring, or who rely on the daily winds as
they come and go. If we take the diary
for 1913, it will be seen that we had
wind and rain during a great part of
January. The spring was backward
and there has been lots of rain, with
the exception of the month of July,
which was exceedingly fine. So far
there has been no snow or frost this
winter, this month being very mild and
dry. There is no accounting for the
weather on the Pacific Ocean. It is
usual for the coldest weatherAo come
in during the new moon, and to become
colder at the time of the full moon.
Some of the proverbial signs of weather
in the North are the thick fur appearing on the animals, earlier than usual;
a large run of salmon means a cold
winter; bright days are followed by cold
nights;    south-east    winds   mean   a
change in the temperature; westerly
and northerly winds bring cold and clear
weather. It appears to matter little
how the waters run, the wind controls
the climate, and while the wind remains
in a certain quarter, the weather will
continue good or bad. It is usual to
watch the weather at the change of
moon. The settlers in this part of
British Columbia should not run away
with the idea that it is not necessary to
provide for stock during any winter.
Cattle and other live stock may roam in
the woods and pick up a living; but
there is the danger of them eating the
"salall," which means death to them.
It would always be far better, even in
a climate like ours, to have fodder on
hand in case of emergency. A freeze-up,
with snow, would mean death to the
cattle, and a barn full of hay will keep
away the danger of loosing the animals.
Continuing, Mr. Deasy said, "I have
pioneered in all parts of this Province,
and have experienced one winter on the
prairies, and can truthfully say that no
part of Canada has the advantage of
the Queen Charlotte Islands for a winter
climate. Little snow falls, and is gone
in a day or two. We have some frost,
now and then; but the whole winter,
and this is the fourth I have experienced
on the islands, is far better than any
other part, not only of the Province,
but throughout the Dominion. This I
attribute to the south-easterly winds,
which, although strong at times, blows
from the warmer countries, and not
from the Alaskan coast. The past year
has been unprecedented in many places
with storms and floods, accompanied by
great loss of life and destruction of
property. To us on the islands we have
much to be thankful for."

Yakoun Hotel Christmas Dinner
Young Indian Drowned  G.T.P. Winter Schedule
Near Massett Wharf
A regrettable drowning accident
occurred last Saturday afternoon, when
a young Indian named Chris Matthews,
about 24 years of age, fell overboard
from Henry Edenshaw's gasoline boat
"Josephine," and disappeared before
assistance could reach him.
The accident happened while the
"Josephine" was returning to the
Indian village from Massett.
The body was recovered shortly afterwards, and although resuscitative
measures were applied for several hours,
under the supervision of Dr. Graves,
it was of no avail.
An inquest was held and a verdict of
accidental drowning was returned. The
jury recommended that the law be enforced as to the carrying of dinghys on
all launches. The jury also exonerated
Mr. Edenshaw from all blame.

Mr. And Mrs. Hastie's Dance*
Mr. and Mrs. W. F. Hastie, of
Queenstown, extend a hearty invitation
to everyone to attend a social and dance
to be held on Wednesday evening, 14th
January, 1914, on the occasion of +he
opening of their new hall and billiard
room.
The winter schedule of the G.< T. P.
steamer service to the Islands is now in
effect, and, as usual, are being handed
out a raw deal. Last winter there was
one occasion when the steamer did not
call for three weeks, but this winter
they are going one better. It will be
exactly four v.eeks between the last
steamer and the one that arrives on
January 15.
To say that the people are indignant,
is putting it mildly, and the G. T. P.
can only blame themselves if an opposition steamer service to the Islands
is inaugurated.
In the meantine, Mr. H. S. Clements,
M.P., has been communicated with by
wire from both Conservative Associations of Massett and Queenstown for
the use of the fishery patrol cruiser
Gannet to carry over the mail from
Prince Rupert.
Prince Albert Will Make Extra Trip
Just as we go to press the following
wire has been handed in:
" Vancouver, Dec. 23rd, 1913.
" The Postmaster, Massett, B.C.
" Prince Albert leaving here on
New^ Year's Day making  Rupert  and

Dr. Graves was the guest of Mr. and
Mrs. F. C. Wright last Wednesday.
Dominion Constable Hughes came over
the trail from Skidegate, arriving here
Saturday afternoon, leaving later for
Massett on the "Polaris."
Mrs. O'Brien was taken suddenly ill
last week and a phone message was
despatched for Dr. Graves, who lost no
time in coming up. We are glad to
learn that Mrs. O'Brien is much better.
Mr. D. M. McKay, who has been connected with the Nash survey during the
past season, left, to the regret of his
many friends here, for the south on the
last steamer. "Mack" expects, however, to be back again next season.
The "Polaris" had a good number of
passengers from Queenstown on boat
day for Massett, among whom were:
F. C. Wright, W. L. Barton, B. L.
Tingley, D. M. McKay and J. Brick-
man. The "Polaris" arrived back in
the evening. .
Hazelton & Campbell, the Woden
boat-builders, have just delivered to
W. F. Hastie a new 18.4 ft. launch,
equipped with a 31-2 h.p. Callie engine.
The "Eliza," for such is its name, is
further proof of the excellent work done
by this enterprising firm.
Christmas Day
Turkey Shoot
Turkeys for a shot. No tiresome
hunting or tedious plucking; they are
all dressed and ready for the oven.
This chance avails all who attend the
Turkey Shoot to be held at the Yakoun
Hotel on Christmas Day.
To provide for the large ciowd that is
anticipated a goodly number of turkeys
have been arranged for.
A number of ladies have expressed a
desire to compete in the shooting for
turkeys and it has been arranged to
hold a separate shoot for the ladies.
Everybody welcome: and come with
a firm resolve and a steady aim, for the
ladies and gentlemen for miles around
are busy practising for the big event
tomorrow.

A Merry Christmas.
The season is now at hand when young
and old gather round the hearth and
welcome the anniversary that meant so
much to the Christian world. Christmas
time has alway been looked upon as a
day of festivity and joy, especially to
the children. The hanging of stockings
over the fireplace will be dispensed with
on our islands, for the simple reason
that the pioneers are lacking the
"hanging-places" just now; but there
is a superfluity of trees in the neighborhood of every settlement and home,
which should groan under all manner of
toys and sweetmeats. The "Children's
Day " should be made a reminder of our
own, when the yule log burned on the
hearth and all were contented and happy.
There are also the friends, far away,
who look for some token from those
who are spending the "day of days"
in their island home. A Christmas card,
letter, or other small reminder, to the
dear ones of the family should not be
forgotten. There are hearts beating
with feelings of regret at our absence
from the festive board at home; hearts
of fathers and mothers, of brothers and
sisters, who are wishing us joy and
prosperity in our exile, where we are
pioneering among the disadvantages of
a new country. Around the festive
board in our homes where bright and
cheery faces are, perhaps, welcoming
the Christmas morn for the first time,
let all feelings of loneliness give place
to the prospects of a sure and happy
future. Make of the day one of unalloyed pleasure. Let friend greet
friend in a vein of fellowship and goodwill, remembering that there is too
little time in life's shert span to harbor
any other feeling than kindness, one for
another. If there is a lonely settler,
without the opportunity to spend the
day in a manner that we have been used
to, try and make his lot better on this
anniversary. If there are any children
whose circumstances preclude them
from spending a merry Christmas, may
those who are in a position to give them
pleasure, bring them to some place
where they will pass the day in celebrating, so that they will remember the
kindness of their neighbors in after
years. We have not the opportunities
that they have in the cities and town*;
but there is ever a way to make this
anniversary a Christian one, in thought,
word and deed. We wish all of the
readers of the Queen Charlotte Islander
A Merry Christmas.

A Merry Xmas.
Two travelling men reached a small
place in Alabama late one evening and
found that there was no room to be had
at the hotel. The proprietor did not
want to disappoint them, as they were
regular patrons, so he told them that
he would send some bedding over to an
old church he had just bought and make
them as comfortable as possible there.
About midnight the whole town was
startled by the furious ringing of the
church bell.
An old colored man was sent by the
proprietor to see what was the matter.
Soon he came shambling back.
" Massa Boss ! " he exclaimed.
" Massa Boss! Jes' cam' yo'self.
'Twan't nothin' but de gemmen in pew

LAND LEASE.
Here's a health to hoary old Xmas,
The day we have looked for so long ;
The day we enjoy to the utmost,
And the evening we burstforthinsong.
Our wild goose is stuffed with onions;
Our bottle is full to the cork;
We dance and we sing to make merry,
And never once think about work.
For who is the stingey old fellow—
Degraded he would be I fear—
Who would work on that day of all days,
When it comes only once in the year.
We ' '11 hunt the wild goose in the
morning,
In the evening will dress for the ball;
The ladies down at Graham Centre
Wont be able to know us at all.
We will discard the blanket attire;
Our hip boots we will leave at the door;
And the white shirt we brought to the
Island
Will have to do service once more.
For we are all jolly good fellows,
The ladies included, you know,
The married and those that are single,
And those that have secured a beau.

*%
A little cedar cabin deep in the forest
gloom,
May seem a lonesome place to folks in
town,
But it isn't half so dismal as a city's
rented room,
Where you've got to have a job and
hold it down.
Just a little bit of clearing and a tiny
garden patch
Are all a man requires to keep him
going ;
The door can stand wide open, or merely
on the latch,
For no one's going to call for rent
that's owing.
The cooking may be simple, for you do
it all yourself.
And you don't have far to go for ducks
and geese;
But in town a clumsy waiter slings you
hash on dirty delf,
And spills around the gravy and the
grease.
And your clothing in the cities must always, more or less,
The whims of fashion's dictates closely
follow;
While on your own pre-emption you can
pretty nearly guess
A tailor would observe your elothes
with sorrow.
So  you can have your  city streets,
electric light and all,
But I prefer my quiet retreat among
the timbers tall;
Our ways may be much rougher than
the usual city style,
But we like our grass more frequent
than a blade to every mile.
We know you have conveniences, like
telephone and train.
But you don't get any benefit, like we
do, from the rain;
And when the sun is shining on our
little garden spot,
It's making concrete sidewalks most
uncomfortably hot!
Oeanda.

Good Hunting Season.
It will be hardly possible to realize ^^
that over two hundred black bears have
been trapped or shot on Graham Island
during the past two months. Such ia
the case, nevertheless. Two small
parties of Indian hunters brought in
twenty-one skins last week. The others
have been shipped, or are still being
held, to ascertain prices. A large num-
of marten and land otter will also be
forwarded to the outside furriers.
