Canada's Coal Consumption.
During the present year the consumption of coal in Canada has amounted to
about 24,400,000 tons, made «p as follows: 9,800,000 tons of coal produced
in Canada, and 14,600,000 tons of imported coal. According to the figures
Canada produces only about 40 per cent
of the eoal which it consumes. It must
be noted, however, that if all the coal
mined in Canada had been used in the
country, it would have constituted over
46 per cent of the consumption.

Credit For Farmers.
The statement that settlers would be
supplied with stumping powder free by
the provincial government is declared to
have been made in error, according to
Mr. W. E. Scott, deputy minister of
agriculture. Members of farmers' institutes are given the privilege of buying powder at the factory at the reduced
price of five dollars a case. Members
of institutes have also the added advantage of having their powder carried at
half the regular rate. The provincial
department will further aid the institutes by buying a carload and paying
for the same on the understanding that
payments be refunded as sales are
effected.
The aid to farmers as members of institutes assists to a limited extent in
promoting land clearing and thereby increasing agricultural production in both
the old as well as the new settled sections. But the welcome given to this
erroneous statement is significant of
the interest being taken in land clearing
and land settlement problems as these
concern this heavily timbered province.
Recently Hon. Price Ellison, provincial
minister of agriculture, has added interest to the question by giving support
to the view that some arrangement
ought to be made whereby British Columbia farmers may obtain money at
moderate rates of interest for the improvement of their property and the
extension of their operations.
Other governments are giving attention to this problem of improving the
credit facilities of the farming community. Both the Republican and
Democratic party platforms of the
United States favor government loans
to farmers as a step towards increasing
agricultural production and lowering the
cost of living. President Taft in a
recent letter addressed to the governors
of all the states offers a plan to this
end, an outline of the features of which
The Toronto News presents in a recent
issue.
The project advanced by American
public men is based upon the principles
of co-operative agriculture. It proposes the establishment by the individual
states of the Raiffeisen bank system ;
of land mortgage   banks and of  co
operative mortgage bond societies all
after the German type. Nationnl land
mortgage banks are to be operated under government supervision, with the
power to guarantee and market the
guaranteed debentures bonds of the
state land-mortgage banks or co-operative societies.
In this way the farmers of the state
or nation could combine the security
which they have to offer and approach
the loan market as one man, thus securing lower rates of interest than are now
within their reach. The average interest
rate paid now by American farmers is
8 1-2 per cent, which compares with 3
1-2 to 4 1-2 per cent paid by the agriculturists of Europe. Again the interest
rate paid by the American farmer is
considerably higher than that paid by
industrial corporations, railroads or
municipalities. Yet the security offered
by the farmer in his farm lands is quite
as sound as that offered by industrial
corporations. Why then, asks The
News, will not the investor furnish the
farmer with money at as advantageous
rates as he gives to the industrial corporations? Obviously, the advantage
enjoyed by the industrial corporation
lies in the financial machinery at its
command, which permits it to place its
offer before the investor in a more attractive and more readily negotiable
form. The farmer lacks this machinery,
and, lacking it, he suffers unreasonably.
The proposal has the support of the
press, and much is expected from it.
President Taft states that after the
machinery has been provided the farmers
will have to organize and use it for
themselves. Once they get legislative
permission they will have to form cooperative land banks and mortgage bond
societies through which to raise money
for their own use.
In revising the Canadian Bank Act,
Mr. White, the News advocates, should
extend to our banks greater freedom in
the loaning of money to farmers. The
agriculturists of the West would especially welcome such legislation, it says.
It is probable, however, that the most
effective means of extending the credit
of the Canadian farmers will be found
in the establishment amongst themselves of such credited organizations as
are contemplated in the United States
and as already prevail in Europe.
All this will be most interesting to
those farmers and public men of British
Columbia who have for so many years
been advocating some public system by
which new settlers and even farmers
already well established on the land may
be aided in securing necessary advances
for extending their farming operations.

History Of Queen Charlotte Islands.
Haidas and Their Legends.
By Mr. Charles Harrison.
Article XXII—-Medicine Men of the Haidas.
The devil doctors also exercised great
influence in the family circle.    When a
man wished to marry he made his wishes
known to the Sa-ag-ga of his tribe, and
if he were pleased with proposed union
would make known the young  man's
wishes to his own mother, and then both
she and the doctor would go to the
mother of the girl he had chosen and
arrange the match.    When all the arrangements were completed the young
man generally invited his friends to go
with him to the girl's parents.   As they
entered the house they sat down on one
side of the fire that was generally burning in the centre of the old fashioned
houses, and the girl and her friends sat
on the opposite side.    The friends of
the young man then highly recommended
his good qualities to the parents of the
prospective bride, and if satisfactory,
as soon as all the speech making was
ended the girl got up and went across
to where her future husband was sitting
and sat down beside him and held his
hand in hers.    They were then looked
upon as man and wife and she was led
away by her husband to his parent's
house, but only for a few days, when
both returned and brought with them
presents from  the man's friends  and
both remained in the house of the girl's
parents.    The young husband was under obligation to do his utmost to help
his father-in-law in his work of making
canoes, fishing and hunting.    This custom now is entirely changed and all
have adopted the white man's mode of
marriage.
In the olden days when a girl reached
maturity she had to pay strict attention
to the orders of the medicine man and
pass through certain trying ordeals and
ceremonies. A small tent was generally
erected for her accommodation at the
back of her father's house and in this
tent she had to exist for fourteen days
and sometimes longer. Her face was
generally painted and she had very little
food given her, as during this period
she was supposed to be fasting, and by
the devil doctor's orders fasting more
or less severe was practised. Should
she during this period be compelled to
go outside of her tent and accidentally
meet a man, her face had immediately
to be covered with her blanket. During
this trying time she also wore a peculiar
cloak made out of the inner bark of a
cedar tree which covered her head and
reached down to her knees, leaving only
a small aperture for her eyes so that
she could see where she was going.
This cloak was only worn on this peculiar
occasion, so that when seen wearing
this garb all the people looked upon her
as about to pass from girlhood to womanhood.    During the time she lived alone
in the tent she was supposed to wear
this robe both day and night as during
this ceremonial  uncleanness she was
under strict orders not to remove it under  any  consideration.     Should   this
ceremony take place during the winter
months she was allowed a part of her
parent's house for this purpose, but the
corner  that she occupied had  to be
screened off so that she could not be
seen.   When her time had expired and
the doctor had given his consent the
parents of the girl were accustomed to
make a great feast and all the people
in the village were invited to attend.
When all were assembled the screen or
the door of the tent was raised and the
girl was seen sitting with her back to
the guests dressed in the garb above
referred to.    This was removed by a
woman authorized by the doctor to do
this work and as soon as this sign of
her degradation had disappeared the
girl commenced to sing and dance before all the people present the songs
and dances that she had been previously
taught for this occasion.  When she had
finished all that she was compelled to do
she was then congratulated by all and
the feasting then commenced.     After
the feasting and congratulatory speeches
were ended the rest of the night was
spent in dancing.  This custom has completely died away with the death of the
last Sa-ag-ga.
When the first-born son was born it
was customary amongst the ancient
Haidas to name him after the mother's
eldest brother, but should the mother
be brotherless the medicine man was
consulted and the result of this consultation after he had consulted his spirits
and had taken about a week to think
and dream over it was generally that
the child should receive the name of a
deceased relative or friend on his
mother's side, and with great rhetoric
the medicine man was accustomed to
demonstrate that the soul of this deceased person had again returned to his
tribe in the newly born child, and consequently as he was revisiting his own
people for a second or third time he had
to receive his former rank and precedence when the child had grown to
manhood.    The doctor having defined
the soul of his mother's relative that
had entered the child, so now the child
had to be named after this ancestor and
this was done with great eclat in the
presence of all the tribe. All were expected to give presents according to
their rank to start the boy on his way
through life. His aunt on his father's
side generally acted as god-mother and
received the presents on behalf of her
god-son. The next great ceremony that
he had to undergo was the occasion of
having the lobes of his ears and the
septum of his nose pierced in order to
be fully decorated on proper occasions
with bone ear-rings and a bone nose
ring as became the warriors of his tribe.
During this ceremony a potlatch was
made on his behalf by his uncle, whom
he was destined to succeed, and great
rejoicing took place when this piercing
ceremony was bravely and successfully
accomplished. When he was brought
out as a young man and had to take his
place as a man of the nation he had to
undergo the ordeal of tattooing. It
was formerly customary for the young

A Correction.
Masset, November 2nd, 1912.
Editor Queen Charlotte Islander.
Sir,—In the issue of the Islander of
date December 4th, 1911, page 3, column
2, I stated that prior to the arrival of
the Rev. W. H. Collison's (now Archdeacon) visit to these islands, Mr. Duncan had sent Zimshean teachers across
from Metlakatla to instruct the Haidas
in the tenets of Christianity. So far
as regards Archdeacon Collison being
the first white man to administer to the
spiritual needs of the natives, this is
quite correct.
It was after the Archdeacon's first
visit to the mainland from these islands
to consult with Mr. Duncan re the
location of a teacher at Skidegate, that
Edward Mathers, a Zimshian, was appointed under the superintendence of
the Archdeacon, and as I am now informed there was no Zimshian teacher
sent across prior to the arrival of the
Venerable Archdeacon to these islands.
Trusting that you will insert this
correction.—Yours respectfully,
C. Harrison.
