Redistribution.
A question that is  being generally
discussed all over the Islands is the
change that will take place before the
next general election, with regard to
giving the Queen Charlotte Islands a
representative in, the local Legislature.
At the rate voters are being placed on
the list we should have five  hundred
electors by next fall, and this number
will call for a representative without
attaching this district to any other.   It
has been asserted that Queen Charlotte
Islands will form a part of another and
a larger section, but if we have representation according to population, there
are many other districts that will not
total up with this constituency,   and
they should be connected with adjacent
territory.     If the question is one of the
territory,    and the  government   considers the requirements of the future,
it is plain that our islands will now fill
up very rapidly and is growing in the
way of settlers coming in.     It must
also be remembered  that our islands
are diatant from  any other section,
and the wants of the people can scarcely be understood by  a representative
whose residence would be in the large
cities.   We have no fault to find with
those who now represent this district;
but when a change is made it should be
to give the electors an opportunity of
saying   who   shall   watch over their
welfare, without introducing a divided
district and the consequent clashing of
interests.   The electors should make a
strong plea for a member for the islands,
and every voter that is on the islands
should see to it that he is on the list.

Dominion Day Celebration.
The Committee who are arranging the
Dominion Day Celebration at Massett
had a meeting on Monday night.   They
are  arranging  a  full and varied programme for the day.   The children will
have lots of races, though the features
of the day will doubtless  be  the  nail-
driving contest for ladies, and the race
for fat-young men over fifty.   There is
to be a tennis tournament, also football
and baseball matches, and it is to be
hoped that each of the settlements will
be able to enter a team for the tug-of-
war.    A free for all motor boat race
will also prove an attraction.     In the
evening a dance will be held which will
be a good windup to what promises to
be a very strenuous day.    Officials for
the day were appointed as follows:—
Starter, J. M. Campbell; Judges, Chas.
$100.00 in Prizes

to the Settler. This land
lies close to Queenstown  and offers a
golden opportunity to the home-
seeker.
Indian Agent Thomas Deasy haa sent
a portion of his collection of Indian
curios to the Entomolo ical Department at Ottawa. He still retains the
Black Slste Work, of which he has
the largest collection extant. The
exhibit forwarded included over thirty
objects, comprising the basketry, carving in wood, bone and other material,
Indian hats, mocassins, model house,
and a number of other interesting
articles, showing the work of the Haida
Indians. The curiosities will be located
permanently in the goverment museum
at Ottawa. He also sent a collection
of shells, agates, ruby sand, graphite,
and other products of the islands.
During the visit to   Massett  of General Agent A. Davidson, of theG. T. P.
Railway Company,   he  discussed   with
Indians Agent Deasy the placing of an
exhibit at the San   Francisco  Exposition, of the products of the islands and
the taking of a number of Indian  carvers   and weavers  to   the Fair.     Mr.
Deasy is of the  opinion   that  a   good
opportunity   is  afforded   to   publish a
book, on the Queen   Charlotte islands,
for general distribution   at the Exhibition.    The G. T. P. Railway   Company
contemplates erecting a building to cost
half a million of dollars.

MASSETT,

An unfortunate fire occurred on Sunday about noon, when that well known
and staunch craft, the Josephine, Capt.
Henry Edenshaw, was burned to the
water line as she lay at her moorings in
Delkatlah. It is thought that the sun,
which was very hot on that day, must
have concentrated through one of the
port holes, on some matches and thus
started the blaze. It was notdiscovered
in time to do anything, and as there
was about sixty gallons of gasolene
aboard, none felt like getting to close
until the tank had exploded. As it is,
she is practically a total loss; she was
worth about two thousand dollars and
much sympathy is felt for Mr. Edenshaw. A fund has been started to
enable him procure another boat. This
is in the very capable hands of Mr.
Hicks, by whom subscriptions will be
received, or at the other points on the
Inlet where a subscription list is open.

the pre-emptions and was surprised at
the development of the district. He is
jolly company and we hope he will drop
in often.

What's the matter with you
Pessimists ?
If you knew as much as I do about the future of Delkatlah Bay
you would be chasing me up with payments on your lots.
The farming may be a little slow in developing, and the coal seams
hard to trace in paying quantities, but Delkatlah is on the eVe of development as a Winter Tourist Resort which will place it only second to Prince
Rupert in Northern British Columbia. ,
I am not a prophet, for such prophecy only requires the application of
ordinary common sense.
Buying lots in Delkatlah is like sowing seed—the money disappears like
the seed in the ground only to spring up and yield ten fold.
Canada needs no summer resort, it has all the summer climate it wants,
but from Nova Scotia to the Rockies it needs a winter climate, and that's
what we have. The Spring is the time to sow seed. Sow your wages in a
lot at the rate of $5.00 a month and have a home in town.
Immediately back of Delkatlah pre-emptions are being taken up at the
rate of ten a week.   That will soon increase values.
