Such hopeless seas of ink have washed
over our land; so freighted with platitude—clumsy, demagogic optimism or
still clumsier invective—that to broach
the subject anew seems but another
drop in a muddy sea—to say the least,
useless and thankless endeavour.
However, leaving "political possibilities" aside, a few thoughts occured
to me which I will try to keep within
the domain of concrete fact.
No castellated schemes do I wish to
expound, no dreamer's Utopia. To many
who have studied Imperial politics this
will be btit antiquated history.
I refer here to the direct financial
help afforded by the government of New
Zealand to pioneer settlers and farmers
in the form of loans, at easy rates of
interest and payment, in conjunction
with Graham Island's urgent and bitter
need of the self same system and policy.
But firstly we must establish, and the
fact is obvious, that the agricultural
development of the Queen Charlotte
Islands so far has been practically nil.
Men with the intention to farm, note
I do not say pre-emptors, have come—
and gone. Those actually trying to
farm may be counted on the fingers of
the one hand and are only here, " because they are here."
Sacrilege ! I know this is plain talk,
entirely at variance with real estate
prospectuses. I know that some will
say "knocker." But the bulk of you
of the rank and file ; you who have hope
in the land and hope to live on it; will
agree that the time has come to look at
things on the level and to put them
there if we can.
For the sake of the great issues at
hand let us agree that something is
wrong. The land is there, the climate,
the settler and the will are there. What
therefor do we need : cash.
There are many ways of introducing
capital into a new couritry. Under the
old way land from the pioneer changed
hands several times, during a course of
0. W. M. Hughes, the recently appointed Dominion Constable, broke all
records in connection with the arrest
and conviction of law-breakers on the
islands. On the 4th inst. he laid charges
against three Chinamen for supplying
liquor to Indians, and against several
Indians who had been indulging in intoxicants at Naden Harbor. Two of
the Chinamen were convicted and sentenced by Indian Agent Deasy to fines
of $300 each, or six months' imprisonment. One Chinaman was acquitted.
The majority of the Indians were fined
and one of them sentenced to three
months' on suspended sentence. The
trials took place at Wallace Canneries,
Naden Harbor. The Chinese prisoners
will be taken to New Westminster on
the next steamer.

The Indians returned to Massett Reserve on Saturday from Naden Harbor,
to make preparations for the visit of

the Dominion and Provincial Governments, who arrived yesterday on the

But apart from this the ultimate aim
of the government loan—let us consider
it as a purely financial transaction.
Even from that point of view the Province can make interest on the investment. Let us suppose for instance,
to cover the loans, a provincial issue
of long term bonds at 4 per cent. Such
capital turned over to the settlers at
4 1-2 or 5 per cent would net an ample
margin for administration and possible
failures.

8RAHAM CENTRE
The committee which were appointed
to investigate the possibilities of forming a skating rink have decided upon a
pond which is near the post office, and
the residents here are spending their
spare time in clearing the debris which
has accumulated in it for many years.
Capt. Elmer O'Brien left here last
week in his gasoline boat for Massett,
taking the inside passage through Kun-
dis Slough. According to this tide table
he had a 17 ft. tide to cross the divide,
but found to his disgust that there was
a considerable difference between the
schedule and the actual amount of
water. Instead of crossing the divide
safely he ran aground and was compelled to leave hie launch for several
days, waiting for higher water. If a
, channel was opened through the divide
(which could be easily done with a team
and scraper) so that gasoline boats oould
cross at any high tide, a tremendous
saving in time would result, which would
be of great benefit to the mail service
and the general public.
Thursday morning resident of Graham
Centre turned out en masse to wish Mr.
James McLay bon voyage on the occasion of his leaving on a well earned vacation. Hearty good wishes were also
extended to Messrs. Sampson and
Graham, who are leaving to carry on
survey work near Lawn Hill.
The property holders of Graham
Centre are showing considerable interest
in the arrival of the telephone line from
the wireless station at Dead Tree Point.
Several private parties have expressed
a desire to have telephones installed as
soon as the line is completed. This ie
another step in the development of the •
islands and is much appreciated by the
residents here.
Nigel Sherwood was here during the
week' to inspect his property, with a
view to building. Our old friend Frank
Meldofywas also a visitor* en route to
Mayer Lake, Other arrivals were John
Locker, Mr. and Mrs. Graham, Ed'. Bust,
Jas. Allison, J. McDougall, G. B. Godwin, W. Purkiss, H. Holland, Rev. H.
H. Greene, G. W. Shaw, A. D. Burton,
j. McDougall, B. A. Millard.
Mr. C. deB. Green's enengetic assistant, J. F. Sampson, paid a flying visit
to Graham Centre on the launeh Queen
Wednesday night. Thursday he was
seen at wonk 5.30 a. m. on Kumdis
island and later caught the mail launch
to Massett, en route for Skidegate.
While at the Centre he expressed great
admiration for Miss Adam's flower
garden.
Divine service was held here SundAty
by Rev. H. H. Greene, who opened a
series of discourses en texts taken from
the Sermon on the Mount. Much appreciation was shown by the congregation at tbe able manner in which the
adject was dealt with.
