Will Enforce Clause
Provincial Government Will  Prohibit   Orientals
Queen Charlotte City to Massett Over Waggon Road and Mexican Tom's Trail. from Working on Timber Limits.
Dead Tree Point was the next stopping
place and there the wireless station of
the Dominion government is located.
Mr. Creer and an assistant are in charge
of the dissemination of news of the
world, having two substantial buildings
and several acres of good ground on a
portion of Dr. J. C. Spencer's land.
The site is one of the best on the island,
facing out to Hecate Straits, in sight of
all passing vessels. After passing Mr.
Brown's pre-emption, which is being
improved, we arrived at Lawn Hill and
decided to remain for the night, Mr.
Gordon continuing on to the next road
camp. Mr. and Mrs. Scharffe conduct
the hotel, store and post-office at Lawn
Hill. They are both enterprising and
hospitable, making every endeavour to
satisfy the most fastidious, and providing a dinner of which home-grown
vegetables and fruit formed an agreeable part. An early start and a few
miles along the splendid road, brought
the travelers to the locations of Messrs.
McPherson, Duncan, Ashton and Bush-
ell, and through the road camps of
Messrs. Duncan and Schaffer. Fields
of promising potatoes and other vegetables were met with on the pre-emptions, and a new innovation, in the way
of clearing roads on the islands, were
the horses imported last spring by Government Agent Sandilands. The animals
were doing work that saved manual labor
and blasting powder, removing stumps
quite readily from the road and effecting
a great deal of good in placing logs and
obstructions away from the line of travel. Further along, about the noon
hour, we struck bridge foreman Miller's
camp, and it would not be out of place
to state that all of the bridges along the
route were substantial and well constructed. On we journeyed, nearing the
banks of the Tl-el river, where the best
farms on the island are located. Messrs.
Berch, Aspinwall, Cooke, Allard and
Mrs. Hodges have sections of land that
are valuable producers, which will increase, now that a good road leads to
the markets at the south end of the
island. It was a surprise to view the
large extent of open territory on the
banks of the Tl-el, owned by Mr. Walsh.
Winding through the large farm, the
river flows to the open sea, forming a
picture that can be better understood
when standing at the door of the substantial residences of Mr. Walsh and
his brother. Cattle roamed at will over
the large prairie, the owner keeping a
stock ranch for the supply of the cannery and residents of the towns to the
south. With the erection of flood gates
and the clearing of the river of logs and
jambs, many miles of good farming
land  will   be   open,   adjacent   to   Mr.
Walsh's farm. The last place visited
before entering the interior of the
island was C. Turney's location, on
which is the post-office for the surrounding district, under the management of
Mr. Turney's genial son. This farm is
on the banks of the Tl-el, extending
from the sea to the banks of the river.
The weekly butter-making was in progress, and it will show that there is an
opportunity for dairying on the island
when we state that forty pounds of
butter was turned out in our presence
by the good English housewife of Mr.
Turney, who not only accommodated us
with a future supply, but made the two
weary travelers comfortable by providing a hearty meal and a good bed.
During the evening we inspected the
bridge over the Tl-el river, a structure
over three hundred feet in length, which
spans the stream near its mouth.
Early on the following morning we
waded across the river in front of Mr.
Turney's residence and took to the tall
timber on Mexican Tom's trail. It wouid
be presumptive on our part to state that
this portion of our journey was over a
roadway of any kind. It appeared, before many miles had been traversed,
that a blind calf had been turned toward
the headwaters of Massett inlet, and
had lost his way in the burnt timber and
muskeg. We naturally followed the
"blazes" apparent here and there,
without questioning the time it would
take to reach our destination. Plodding
along—wheting our thirst from every
water-hole and stream—two weary individuals forgot the beautiful scenery, the
good road to the Tl-el, and everything
that makes life worth living in an endeavor to make the shores of Massett
inlet before nightfall. Mile after mile
we passed, with few signs of life around
us, and forgetful of all else but the goal
ahead. The fourteen miles were but a
short distance, comparing the traveling
done before we struck the trail, on a
road improved and skirting the shores
of the Straits. All had changed to burnt
timber and muskeg, until we reached
the neighborhood of the inlet. Footsore
and weary, our arrival at the new hotel
owned by Eli Tingley, ended the land
journey at Queenstown. There we
found a new building in course of erection, a store, and the annex of the hotel.
Bert Tingley provided us with accommodation for the night in a manner that
will prove to all visitors that the proprietors of the new hostelry intend to
give travelers the best the island affords
in the way of rooms and board. James
Martin's store and several residences in
the neighborhood, goes to prove that a
town is in course of erection in that
splendid locality.  A launch ride occupy-
The Provincial government has resolved that the clause in timber licenses
which prohibits Orientals from working
on limits under license shall be enforced.
As a note of warning Captain Nye of
the timber cruiser Kiora recently stopped
a Japanese named Fujoka from continuing operations on a timber limit
near Sechelt. Fujoka was working on
a timber license taken out in the name
of a white man, though in every timber
license there is a clause that prevents
the employment of Asiatics under such
licenses.
Some time ago Mr. McKay received
instructions from the Minister of Lands
to see that the conditions of the licenses
with regard to the employment of
Orientals were carried out, and should
further violations be found other
seizures will follow.
Application For Subsidy.
Dominion Dairy and Cold Storage Commissioner
Visits Plant at Pacofi.
Mr. J. A. Ruddick, Dominion dairy
and cold storage commissioner, passed
through on the Prince Albert on Monday
for Pacofi. Mr. Ruddick is visiting the
plant of the Standard Fish Company
to report on an application for subsidy
under the Dominion Cold Storage Act.
Mr. Aliford, manager for the Standard
Fish company, accompanied the commissioner.
ing two hours and a half, down Massett
inlet, completed the trip from north to
south, and showed that a good horse
trail from the Tl-el to Queenstown would
be an outlet for the produce of the
farmers living along the river, and a
quick means of communication between
the settlements. Under ordinary circumstances, a traveler loses two weeks
making the journey by steamer when
going from Massett to Skidegate and
return. The overland route occupies
two days each way, and the time taken
could be shortened by the use of horses.
In future, the only part that need be
travelled on foot will be Mexican Tom's
trail, and the expense of placing this
section in a fit condition for horses to
travel on would be small, considering
that fourteen miles is necessary. The
work being done along the east coast of
the island is commended by all who live
along the route, and forms a means of
conveyance for the farmers and other
locators; but the shortest land journey
is across the island, and a better route
will be found once an effort is made to
bring the people of the north and south
closer together for their mutual benefit.

Advertising Our Islands.
There are many ways to bring before
the people of the older lands the great
difference in living in the crowded centres and out in this vast western
country, where the poverty and crime
extant in places crowded up with men
and women eking out a bare existence,
brings nothing to their families and
themselves but misery. The people of
our own race from England, Ireland and
Scotland are leaving their old homes by
thousands for Canada and the United
States. Every steamer leaving for
Montreal and New York is crowded with
emigrants, all seeking to better their
conditions. Advertising agents of the
Provincial governments and railway
companies are scattered over the old
land, extolling the natural resources of
the Dominion, and inducing thousands
upon thousands to take up a new life on
the prairies and sparsely settled sections
of the Eastern provinces. In a few
years, if the influx continues—and there
is every reason to know that it will—
the population of Canada will reach the
ten million mark. Along the lines of
railway, from East to West, new towns
are springing up. With the driving of
the last spike on the line of the G. T. P.
railway, this vast Northern country will
see thousands pouring in to Prince
Rupert, seeking investments and homes.
It would be difficult to describe the
class of settlers needed on the Islands.
Our resources are so varied, and conditions so regulated, that we have to
offer the immigrant a choice of vocation. The fisherman will find our waters
teeming with fish, for which good prices
are paid, and places where colonies of
fishermen may take up homes within
easy reach of the fishing grounds. The
coal mines, now being developed, should
give employment to thousands of mmers,
which will mean the building of towns
similar to Nanaimo and Ladysmith on
Vancouver Island. Lumber and pulp
mills of large capacity will be erected,
giving employment to thousands of
loggers and mill men. Gold and copper
mines are being developed which will
mean work for many miners. Should
the companies now engaged in drilling
for oil bring forth that useful fluid,
there will be thousands engaged in its
extraction and shipment. Unfortunately, and we state this with due deliberation, the timber and coal lands which
have been licensed, cover a great deal
of the ground that might be useful for
the small farmer and market gardener.
It must be considered that mill men require large sections of timber lands before constructing lumber mills, and
every coal company needs a large tract
to work collieries; but the reservation
of so much land that might be settled,
will be a drawback until the land is
logged and the coal mines exploited.
We have every reason to know that no
part of Canada offers a better place to
live than on the Queen Charlotte Islands.
The long summer days and the mild
winte-r cannot be duplicated in any section of any Province of the Dominion.
We have no extreme weather during
winter or summer, which is an inducement to those requiring homes where
they will enjoy life without the discomforts met with in any other land. Five
years ago this part of the Province was
an unknown quantity. Today it stands
out on the great highway between Asia
and America, the first port of call of
ocean-going vessels from all directions,
and within 80 miles is the terminus of a
great transcontinental railway. The
greatest fishing grounds in the known
world surround our shores, and our inland waters are navigable for large and
small craft. Tourists will find fish and
game plentiful, with recreation grounds
and scenery that cannot be excelled.
All we need is advertising. It would
take a large volume to depict the
beauties and advantages of the islands;
but we will only ask those interested in
changing their condition to pay a visit
to them and judge conditions for themselves. At the present time things are
moving ahead rapidly, the fisheries, coal
and oil measures and other industries
are being exploited. Within a year,
perhaps sooner, the Queen Charlotte
Islands will be known as never before.
The natural resources of a country cannot be hidden much longer, and the tide
of immigration is flowing towards Canada, in such countless numbers, that all
portions must have their quota of the
people seeking investment and homes.
The Sandspit Wharf.
Dominion Government Marine Department Engineer J. A. Miller arrived last
Monday from Prince Rupert and proceeded to Sandspit, where he was engaged during the week surveying and
taking soundings for the location and
construction of a wharf. It is understood that the wharf will be built at
Shingle Bay, it being more sheltered at
that point. The work will be done by
contract and tenders will be called for
very soon.

Dominion Geologist Examining
Coal Measures.
Mr. C. H. Clapp of the Dominion
Geological Survey arrived here last
Monday and will be engaged for some
time examining the coal measures on
Graham Island. Mr. Clapp will visit
the various camps where drills are in
operation, and in company with Mr. F.
C. Greene, M.E., visited Slate Chuck,
where the British Pacific Coal Co. have
a force of men at work. Later in the
week they proceeded to the interior by
way of the Honna river valley.

Article XVIII.—Indian Reservations.
Let titles also be given to them,
so tllnat they could either hold it
themselves or dispose of tiheir
holdings as white men do whenever they are satisfied they are receiving a fair price for their properties. I would not advise tlhat
the crown should sell their reserves and hand the money over
to the Indians, as (this would only
have a bad effect and cause trouble. Outside of tlhe small -acreage
required for the old people cut
the reservations up into 160-acre
(homesteads and let each franchised male adult be given his
title, and sihould there not be sufficient land in these reserves to
give each man 160 acres, the gov
ernment of British Columbia
would, I feel convinced, after matters bad gone so far allow those
w'ho were unable to get homesteads m their old reserves (have
the privilege of taking up preemption claims on any part of
the vacant crown lands at their
disposal. By so treating the franchised Indians they would then
be placed on a level with white
men as far as obtaining land is
concerned. They would then
have every inducement to do tiheir
duty and I have not the least
doubt but that the majority of
them would become useful and
well respected citizens of our
great Canadian nation. By a
gradual process and in due course
of time the whole of these reservations could be subdivided, and
all the Indians admitted to citizenship, for I am fully convinced
that under the present reservation
system there is no encouragement
whatsoever for individual effort
and this certainly is morally
wrong. If these few suggestions
were carried out and tlhe Indians
treated as white men and be allowed to assume all the responsibilities of the white men, then
we should (hear no more about
their supposed ownership of the
country. This doctrine of ownership of land does not appear according to one writer, to have ever
been held by the Indians of North
America. He also states there are
some principles tlhat must not be
lost sight of in relation to the reservations. One is that the Indian title is not indefeasible; another is that the government has
the rigiht to scale the area of the
reserves down proportionately to
the decrease of the number of Indians; another is that, while the
Indian must yield 'to the growing
demands of the country, tihey
must be treated with such fairness
and liberality that it can never
be said that injustice lias been
meted out to them.
But justice does not require
that they sihould be allowed to
have their own way. Taking
therefore into consideration all the
pros and cons in regard to this
controversy of the Indian land
question the only salutary and
satisfactory conclusion is to allow all those that are qualified by
being able to read and write to
become franchised and to take
their part not as children but as
citizens of Canada and loyal subjects of the king. By granting
them this privilege they are
bound to become in the near future assimilated to the customs
and life of the white man, and
when this happens and not before
will this agitation about the land
be ended.
The next article will be entitled
"Chief Edenshaw."

If a dealer sells you poultry that are
diseased, when you specify healthy fowl,
and in consequence your other poultry
become ill and cause you loss, you have
a good claim for damages against the
dealer. This is the effect of an interesting judgment given by His Honor Judge
Grant at Vancouver which his honor
awarded Mr. R. W. Grigor of Rossland
judgment for $438.60 on a counterclaim
against Herbert Williamson of Cordova
Street, a poultry dealer. Mr. Williamson's claim for $110, the price of ten
dozen pullets, was dismissed with costs.

LAND ACT.
The naval department is calling for
tenders for the construction of two new
fishery protection cruisers for the
Pacific coast. The encroachment of
United States fishing schooners upon
Canadian territorial waters have made
increased protection urgent and the
Government is determined to prevent
at all costs the use of Canadian fishing
rights by foreigners. The new cruisers
will be the swiftest ever used on the
Pacfic coast and will be equipped in the
most up-to-date manner. They will replace the slower fishery cruisers now in
commission.
 o

Salmon are now running in the inlet
