hundreds are flocking from other shores
to better their conditions in life and to
make their permanent homes. In this
land of promise, where the potentialities
are not yet apparent, the coming years
will see many changes. Already we
are feeling the affects of the influx of
enterprises and population, and the
future of our section of the Province is
beyond the comprehension of the most
optimistic.
In The Mists Of Ages.
Signs Of The Times.
The trend of travel is now Westward*
from atl parts of the world. The freedom enjoyed and the life of action and
all that goes to bring content and happiness, or as near to those much sought
for attributes that man can find in this
world, are to be enjoyed in this section
of the world bordering on the Pacific
Ocean. Steamers and railways are all
crowded with passengers, all seeking to
better themselves and to get away from
the thraldom of the effete cities of
Europe. What will all of this mean in
the future of our Dominion ? It was
not many years ago when the late Justice Walkem was leading the then Opposition in the House of Commons, that
he made the assertion: "Our children,
and our children's children, will never
see the day that the Canadian Pacific
Railway will pay for the grease used on
the wheels of the locomotives." A
noted speaker in the House at Ottawa
made the assertion that "British Columbia was a sea of mountains." The
pity of it is that those great men are
not living today to view the progress
made in twenty short years. From
East to West, town and cities are growing up, with mare advancement in five
years than during the whole of the last
century. If we take Winnipeg and
Vancouver as examples of modern progress, there has not been in the history
of any country, such marvellous growth.
Nearer home, within a few miles of our
islands, is the terminus of the greatest
transcontinental railway that was ever.
constructed. We are all interested in
the growth of that coming centre of
population and progress. It means to
our islands the central city for the
marketing of all that the land and sea
can produce. Where the Indians once
reigned supreme—but ten years ago—

We suspect sometimes that in their
bringing up, a wee drop of heather

their regular diet, for they both can
hand the jolly out in en.rmous quantities as occasion requires. Good luck to
the Westover and her crew.

For days, in fact for weetas,
But on this Island of my choice
The future to me speaks.
I see the waving fields of grain,
The sleekontented cattle;
I hear the rumbling of a train,
The binder's busy rattle.
My "food and tools I've had to pack
O'er Bruin's mazy trails;
The woods themselves provide my shack,
Except, perhaps, the nails.

To blaze a newer trail, and so
To earn his pay - a curse !

A good story comes from Skidegate,
where Dp. Spencer is the Methodist
medical missionary. A party of the
older Indians of the village recently
waited on him and told him they thought
it was time to die. They had seen a
new wireless telegraph station in operation and became convinced that men
were speaking with each other though
hundred of miles apart.
nWe hear, but we can't see 'um
talk," said one old Indian to the missionary. "Pretty soon white man will
be able to tell what we think about,"
he added.

GRAHAM CENTRE
The telegraph engineer, J. A. Thorne,
and construction gang, reached Kumdis
Bjay narrows last Thursday with the
wire. The linemen experienced considerable difficulty in spanning the narrows, but finally overcame this by using
two large spruce trees to carry the wire,
which is bung about 125 feet above the
water, thus enabling the free passage
of row-boats and other small craft into
the bay. From the Kumdis Bay narrows the line runs along Third Avenue
to the Graham Centre post-office, and
from there along the Provincial government trail to Queenstown.
Graham Centre was visited on Sunday
by Dr. A. C. Graves, who made a tour
of the townsite and stated that he
thought Graham Centre was an excellent situation for a hospital or sanatorium.
