The Di-spense-r Tassoo Mines Will Soon Provincial Loans To      Tennis Season Opens
Of. Little Jobs. Be Shipping Ore Farmers Recommended At Queenstown
Mr. Editor,—Through the influence of
a temporarily powerful benefactor, and
in memory of a long period of fish or no
breakfast   existence,   a certain   small
boy—mentally is now in a position
to   proudly  refer  to  himself as   The
Road Boss.
He was recently taken to task in the
columns of The Islander for perpetrating an ill-smelling political joke (?) on
a confiding community. The incident
is on record. Several citizens of unimpeachable character being witness thereto. In the hasty efforts to dodge the
result of his unseemly jest, he failed to
tell us, that owing to his mad scramble
for another year's tenure of a stall at
the public crib, he was overcome by a
desire to show the patron thereof what
his wonderful capabilities are—in the
night soil department of partyism. He
didn't even apologize as a good little
boy would have done. But in a frenzy
of rage at being criticised he runs to
and fro shouting LIAR !! And indiscreetly gets into print with the statement:   "It is all false."
We freely forgive him for using such
harsh language. One does not expect
the mild wine of suavity from a person
whose palate is trained to tingle with
pleasure at the mere thought of aqua
fortes. But why, 0 my erring friend
did you not strive to vindicate yourself
instead of trying to distract attention
by brazenly exposing this last item on
your list of peculiar accomplishments.
Surely whom the gods wish to destroy
they first make mad.
Tom Clouston.
Tramway 2300 Feet Long Just Completed From Mine to Tidewater.
Mr. E. T. Crawford, representing the
Vancouver Machinery depot, says the
Prince Rupert Daily News, is in the
city, having just returned from Queen
Charlotte Islands, where he has been
employed for the past five months
erecting an ariel tramway for the Tassoo Mining Syndicate.
The Tassoo mines are located at Tassoo Harbor, on the west coast of Moresby Island. They are a copper proposition with big blocks of profitable
ore in sight. The tramway is for the
purpose of carrying the ore from the
mine to tidewater, a distance of 2300
feet.
On the harbor there are now being
erected bunkers holding 1200 tons.
These will be completed very soon and
active operations will commence.
The ore will be shipped in 1200-ton
shipments to the smelter. The first
shipment will be made shortly. Quite
a large number of men are working at
the mines now.
The manager is R. R. Hedly, a well-
known mining man of Vancouver.

Cold Storage Plant
For Naden Harbor.
The Wallace Fisheries are putting in
a small cold storage and ice plant at
their Naden Harbor cannery. The
steamer British Empire took over part
of the plant, lumber and several workmen last week. The plant will be used
for chilling the mild-cured salmon put
up by that firm. The spring salmon
have been running big in the waters
nearby the past few years, and a good
pack of mild-cured salmon is always
assured. The company will make a
specialty of this kind of packing at the
Naden Harbor cannery.

Ed. Singer has gone back to the
ranch at Mayer Lake.
Mrs. Oscar Wright, after a visit here
for several months, left on the last
steamer, en route to Carbondale, Pa.
Musical Massett.
Our attention has been drawn by a
Massett correspondent to an item that
appeared in The Islander recently, stating that we were wrong in saying that
there was- no musical combination at
the North end of the island, other than
the Massett Brass Band. On inquiry
we find that this is the case. Some
time ago several musically inclined Massett people met and formed an orchestra.
Under the leadership of Mr. J. Thomas,
rehearsals have been held regularly and
in the near future will make their debut
at a concert to be held in aid of the
Hospital fund. The personnel of the
orchestra is as follows:
Miss Orr, pianist; James Martin,
violin; Claude Cornie, cornet; Clarence
Martin, piccolo; Dr. Graves, clarionet;
Harold Orr, cornet; Robin Martin, flute;
Arthur Thomas, drums, etc.; J. Thomas,
conductor.
The main recommendations of the
report of the Roya; Commission of
Agriculture are the establishment of a
credit commission to make loans to
farmers on improvements, the employment of prison labor in the manufacture
of tile drains and lime quarrying (the
prisoners to be paid for their work
while so employed), the enlargement of
the rural telephone system by government aid.
• It also recommends the contract system on public roads, the establishment
of training schools for child immigrants,
the development of the co-operative
system, government aid for central
markets, the enlargement of agricultural education, the creation of a separate portfolio of agriculture with an advisory board of practical farmers, the
inauguration of closer settlement living
on areas, the establishment of quarantine in areas that are pest affected.
The report suggests the creation of a
board to be known as the Agricultural
Credit Commission, consisting of a
superintendent and four directors, to
deal with all matters appertaining to
the administration of government loans
to farmers, such proposed legislative
assembly to authorize the minister of
finance in each year to borrow up to a
specified amount for the issue of stock
deb jntures bearing interest at not more
than 4 1-2 per cent, and having a currency at 36 1-2 years; these monies to
be available and to the credit of the
commission to lend farmers in respect
to the permanent improvements made
on their land and for other productive
measures, such to be repayable by
mortization over such a period as the
commission shall decide. The applicants
for loans are to be investigated as to
personal character, responsibility and
adaptability to their lands. Maximum
loans may be made on any land not to
exceed 60 per cent, of its value, calculated upon its productive basis, no
loan to be made for less than $250 nor
more than $10,000 to one applicant upon
one property. It is suggested that
applicants for loans not exceeding
$2,000 be given priority.

The New Mission Boat.
Last Friday afternoon the members
of the Queenstown Tennis Club enjoyed
their first game of the season. The
court was in splendid condition and was
kept busy until late in the evening, and
since then daily practise games have
been held.
Several new players are now living
in town and with the class of players
already here, a strong club is assured
for the coming season.
The annual meeting for the election
of officers for the coming season will
be held at the Yakoun Hotel on Saturday, April 4th, at 8 p.m. After the
election of officers, several matters of
importance will be discussed and it is
urgently requested that all tennis enthusiasts be in attendance on that date.
Any new members wishing to join, by
sending their fees to the secretary before date of meeting, will be entitled
to vote on the new executive for the
coming year.

Hazelton Bros, of Woden were in
town Friday with the "Iona " on her
maiden trip.
Mr. L. Builock-Webster has again
been appointed manager of the Prince
Rupert fall exhibition.
B. L. Tingley is preparing to have
extensive alterations and additions made
at the Yakoun Hotel.
Mr. S. D. Sewall, of the Star Realty
Company, Vancouver, is bringing a large
party of settlers to Massett Inlet next
month.
Messrs. M. S. McDougall and Henry
Holland, two prominent settlers of the
Woden district, were in town Friday
on a short visit.
Claude Cornie and J. Thomas of Massett, came upon the "Nancy" yesterday afternoon and later left for Justkat-
lah for cedar logs.
The Liberal leaders, Messrs. Brewster
and Oliver, will tour the North in the
near future. Graham Island will be
included in the itinerary.
Dave Tuft, a progressive farmer near
Queenstown, was in town last Thursday.
"Dave" is also a horticulturist and
spends a lot of time on his ranch experimenting with flowers and plants.
He is paying much attention to the
cultivation of roses, and last boat he received a shipment of a climbing variety
which he thinks will do well here.
The new Anglican Mission power
boat "Iona" made her trial trip on
Friday last from Hazelton & Campell's
boat-yard at Woden and gave complete
satisfaction. The "Iona" is a staunch
little craft, 22 ft. in length, with deckhouse, and propelled by 5 to 6 h. p.
Detroit motor. The boat will be used
by Rev. Mr. Greene in visiting his
various parishioners on the inlet .
What might have resulted in a serious
accident, through a misjudgment of
distance while blasting the jams on the
Yakoun river last week, was none the
less serious enough and one of W. L.
Barton's maple power-boats was put
out of commission for several days in
consequence, through being hit by a
flying stump which burst one side of
the boat and smashed the gasoline tank.
The wien in the boat had a miraculous
escape. QUEEN CHARLOTTE ISLANDER

The British Columbia Fisheries.
The  recent  meeting  of   the   stockholders of the B. C. Fisheiies brought
out the fact   that a large  amount  of
capital had been expended on buildings,
wharves, boats, plant, etc., at Aliford
Bay,  from which  small returns  were
obtained.     It  is the same old story of
capital following the   advice  of  those
who knew little or nothing of our fisheries, and following the advice of English people who consider that they know
how to   manage  concerns without experience of Western ways and methods.
That there  are  plenty of fish   in   our
waters is demonstrated every day by
the boats that return   to   the  sea-port
towns   with hundreds of  thousands of
pounds of halibut.     Spring salmon are
caught in immense numbers off Langara
island,    but   the   provision   made   for
handling them is  so   meagre that last
year the fishermen v. ere taken off the
fishing grounds long before the season
closed.     The run of humpback salmon
during 1912 was phenomenal,  but  the
cannery at Naden Harbor was not in a
position to handle them     It was never
claimed by any person acquainted with
the fisheries off the islands   Lnat  river
fishing would result in any profit.     We
have always had faith in the deep-sea
fishing and made the claim that we have
the greatest fishing beds in the world,
as recent results  demonstrated.     We
further guarantee that the future will
show that the waters off  Queen Charlotte Islands teem with fish.    That the
B.C. Fisheries did not make a success
of  their   unde> taking  was  not  to   be
blamed to the lack of fish, and it is not
beneficial to the islands to have the report current that we   made   assertions
that cannot  be   backed  up  by   proof.
The halibut, cod  and  dog-fish  of  our
waters will produce millions of dollars
to the fishermen   of   the  country,  but
these fish are   not "canned,"' and the
building of canneries was never recommended by those who vaunted  of  our
fish wealth.   Salting, drying and smoke
houses are needed  on the islands, and
there is a fortune to be made for those
who invest in these plants.   The placing
of costly buildings and machinery, bad
management, high salaries, purchasing
land at high figures, and other expenditures, without knowing the result, was
not commendable, and reflects on  the
country as well as on those connected
with the initial cost of the introduction
of the large plant at Aliford Bay.  It is
practically impossible to know just the
returns   from  a  fishing  plant  in  our
Northern waters.     Weather conditions
and  all  other  circumstances must be

studied. Smoke houses, salteries and
drying houses are not costly, and can be
utilized the year round. Not so with a
cannery and fertilizing plant. The removal of the B. C. Fisheries' plant to
Porpoise island, near Prince Rupert, we
trust will be more successful, and there
should be no doubt about that if is
properly managed. Like all other undertakings the islands suffer from
speculations, in which capital is drawn
from thousands of stockholders, without
understanding conditions. It has been
the bane of all new countries, and will
be unless investors make a business of
knowing where they are placing their
capital. Lessons can only be learned
by experience, and the investment of
money in any undertaking, which means
loss to the shareholders, should be
shouldered by those who induce capital
to follow their reports and suggestions.
We believe that the promoters of this
company were honest in their intentions;
but it is not a good business principle to
expend almost a million dollars without
being positive of at least a return of
the money.

A "Senddoph."
I was lucky enough to witness a big
native gathering here the other day.
"The Sentae," as the wild tribes inhabiting the deep island forests of
"Graemsentir " are called, were holding
a Potlach, a kind of movable feast,
known in their strange language, as s
"senddoph."
The occasion of this potlatch, I found,
was the departure of the "Big Chief's"
sister. This Chief, a man celebrated
for his great blandness and urbanity,
holds the native rank of '' Geen Ealohnah
of Graemsentir" and is a big figure in
native affairs. He was surrounded by
many chiefs and their wives, amongst
whom I noticed the "Graem," who
gives his name to the island, and whose
native rank corresponds to that of our
Postmaster-General. The "Graem's"
son (who has lately been engaged in
constructing a hut for the Missionary
to the "Sentae" and the neighboring
tribe of " Kweenstoun," both of whom
are largely pagans) was also present;
others I noticed were the O-Phlyn and
the Aless 'Un.
The "Sentae" appear to have a
quaint custom on these occasions of
holding each other by the hand, and,
with an air of extreme solicitude, exclaiming in the native tongue:
"Gudbi;"
"Myndurite."
A temporary pause took place in the
proceedings whilst the ' 'Geen Ealohnah''
muttered strange incantations over his
big war canoe; from his expression I
gathered that tbe " motagh,:' a peculiar
device installed in many of these canoes,
and chiefly used for delaying departures,
was causing him some temporary
anxiety ; however the matter was soon
adjusted to his satisfaction. With the
statement, "th' ruddee thingsworking-
now," he seized his sister in his strong
arms and stepped aboard. Conches,
toms-toms, howls, war-whoops, and
strange wailings cries rent the air as
the craft proceeded on its way down
the inlet.

HALL FOR RENT.
N.B.—The "Geen Ealohnah," knowing the authorities do not look with any
too frienly an eye upon the institution
known as the potlatch, approached me
later with a view to bribery. He requested me to conceal the affair, offering me food and drink from his qpvn
store hut—Adam's Ale, and (Mc)
Quaker's Oats. I replied in "Kanuk"
(the language of the Kan-Aidyans, of
whom the "Sentae" are an offshoot)
" Nuthingduing," which means in
English, "no you don't, old dear."
The road appropriations for Skeena
District this year are $216,000. Last
year's amount was $405,000. It is plain,
therefore, that the islands share this
year will be reduced proportionately.

Graham Island Case
Deemed Civil Action
Father Coccola of Powell River Trying
to Recover Money Paid for Land
He Did Not Get.
Graham Centre
General Store
In finding Alphonse Emond not guilty
of forging and false pretences in Vancouver recently, His Honor Judge Mclnnes remarked that the case was one
for the civil and not for the criminal
court as the evidence was insufficient
to warrant a criminal action.
According to the evidence submitted,
Emond undertook to obtain land from
the government for Rev. Father Coc-
cula, a Roman Catholio priest at Powell
river, said land to be situated on
Graham Island, for which the Father
was to pay $2.50 per acre and on account of which the plaintiff parted with
sums amounting in all to $685. As no
news of the land was forthcoming, the
plaintiff endeavored to get an accounting from Emond, whereupon accused
offered him land on the island at $10
per acre, which was refused.
Evidence was given showing that the
accused had not applied for any land in
the name of the plaintiff, or that there
was any application in the name of
Coccola in the past two years. The
defense was a denial of the evidence of
the plaintiff, and of any intention to
defraud, inasmuch as the accused, being unable to get the land for the plaintiff, had offered him land which he had
previously bought. The only action
possible being one for the recovery of
the money paid by the' plaintiff, His
Honor delivered judgment as stated.
Mr. W. McKay appeared for the crown,
the accused being represented by Mr.
W. Pollard Grant.
