Graham Island May Be
A Future Naval Base
That there seems a certainty of
striking oil on the west coast of Graham
Island, and that though he visited the
west coast a skeptic, he no longer is
one, was remarked yesterday by Mr.
S. D. Sewall, one of the heaviest individual owners of land on Graham Island, to the Vancouver Sun. Although
Mr. Sewall has been interested in
agricultural and timber land on the
island for a long time, he never took
advantage of the many opportunities
he had to visit the west coast. He
explained this yesterday by saying that
he, with thousands of others citizens of
British Columbia, paid no attention to
oil nor oil prospects of the province
until the Calgary boom started.
Mr. Sewall returned last week from
a trip north in connection with his
land holdings, and this time he went
over the trail from Sewall, a town on
Massett lake which was named after
him, to the drill that is working on the
west coast. He brought back with
him to show his friends and business
associates two boxes of samples of the
roek which forms the capping of the
oil field.
"We, who have been interested in
the various business enterprises on
Graham Island," Mr. Sewall said,
"have been hearing for years about
the oil indications on the west coast.
To be frank, I was skeptical myself.
I always associated oil and California
and other places where wells were
producing. Of course, if one would
have stopped to think, there was no
reason that oil should not exist in this
province. Now that I have inspected
the field, and knowing something of the
California oil fields, I am certain that
this province has a most promising
field on Graham Island.
"I eovered a good deal of territory
on the west coast, and I should judge
the field is extensive. I traveled a good
part of the recognized oil field and it
is, I should judge, some twenty by ten
or twelve miles in extent—that is
where the indications on the surface
are to be found where there is not too
much vegetation. When I left the west
coast the pioneer company was getting
their drill in shape to recommence operations.
"People of the north, though this
field has been at their very doors, finally are excited about it, so that the
Alberta oil boom has done at least that
much good for British Columbia. The
Graham Island field now will be thoroughly prospected. The district is
practically all located now.
"When they get oil, which I have not
the shadow of doubt about, it will not
be a proposition for the Standard Oil
trust or some other concern getting
hold of, I believe  the Admiralty will
Assets of the B. C.
Fisheries Are Sold.
The sale of the assets of the B. C.
Fisheries Co., Ltd., to Mr. Devereaux
for a sum of $300,000 has been confirmed by Mr. Justice Clement in
Supreme Court chambers.
The sale had been effected by the
receiver of the company in England
and has received the assent of the
English courts.
Objections to the sale had been made
by the British Columbian creditors,
who will not get a cent on their claims
for $75,000, the $300,000 being sufficient
to pay only about 75 per cent on the
debentures. They had no better offer
to make and no hope of obtaining a
better offer was held forth, so his
lordship said he would not hold the sale
open.
Mr. J. E. Bird, for the receiver, stated
that the price was the highest obtainable
and he gave a denial to a suggestion
that Devereaux was merely an alias for
the directors.
The company, which was promoted
by the late Sir George Doughty of
Grimsby, showed assets with a paper
value of over $1,500,000.

Indian Agents, like others, like
practical jokes. C. C. Perry of Metlakatla, recently visited Massett and
yesterday upon his return phoned up
Thos. Deasy who is now in town that
there was an Indian uprising at Massett
and several people were killed. Mr.
Deasy at once proceeded to eall in a
band of constables to proceed to the
disturbance. There was a great laugh
when he found out that it was all a
huge joke.—Prince Rupert Daily News.
 o	
Messrs. Parsons and party who arrived
last week and inspected the development
on the Metropolitan Trust Co's Yakoun
Coal Lands went right through to
Skidegate and caught the Prince John
from there last Sunday. Mr. R. C.
Goodale of Seattle, however, went only
as far as Lawn Hill and from there
returned once again to Massett. He
left on Thursday for the East Coast
and wili return in time for next week's
boat. He is delighted with his trip and
the eountry also with what he saw on
his trip up the river.
take over this Meld. It is the best
proposition on the west coast for a naval base that I have ever seen, and
this undoubtedly will be the outcome
of the discovery that there is oil there
in commercial quantity. Otard Bay is
a good deep harbor, and looks out upon
the broad Pacific. The storms on the
west coast have worn the formation of
the island into all kinds of caves and
great cracks. It is a dangerous coast
for the most part except at Otard Bay
which offers excellent shelter."
Messrs. Curtis, Myers and a staff of
assistants arrived on the Prince Albert
and left on Wednesday morning for
Naden Harbor where they will engage
in the work of obtaining views and
watch the work of capturing whales
and reducing the mammals to oil
fertilizing material with the process
necessary to make the captured whales
profitable to the owners of the stations
along the coast. The noted photographer who is at the head of the party
is a resident of Seattle and whose work
is known the world over, will also take
views of the Indians in ancient and
modern costumes, with the villages and
totem poles. Mr. Myers is engaged in
writing a history and in receiving from
the old Indians the legends of the race.
He is connected with a firm issuing a
large number of books on the Indians
of British North America and was a
visitor to the islands last year. The
Haida Indians will receive a great deal
of attention from the authors of the
books, having been the greatest of the
aboriginal warriors of ancient times,
with a history replete with incidents
of a nature that showed their prowess
over the neighboring tribes of the coast.
Mr. Curtis and his staff will remain on
the island for two weeks and will add
materially to the advertising of the
Sentinal islands of the Pacific.
Diamond Drill for Maud Island.
F..C. Wright, of Queen Charlotte
Islands, who has been in Vancouver for
some time in connection with his interests in the island, arrived back
last week.
He is manager of the McKinnon
Syndicate who are drilling for coal on
Graham Island and is very optimistic
over the prospects of both coal and oil.
Mr. Wright is an expert diamond
drill operator and has been made a
partner in a company who have nineteen
sections of oil lands leases and $50,000
in cash to prospect them. The company
is called the North Pacific Development
Company.
They have engaged Mr. Wright to
put down a test hole and the diamond
drill outfit is now on its way here.
Work will be started in a week or two.
Mr. Wright says they will probably have
to go 1,200 or 1,500 feet. The first
well will be put down near Skidegate.
While drilling for coal fer Armstrong
& Morrison last summer, Mr. Wright
struck an oil seepage at adepthof only
288 feet, and again at 380 feet.
Developments of the McKinnon coal
properties will begin again about August
lst. Coal indications are splendid
though Mr. Wright believes mining
will hare to be down about 1,000 feet.
C. H. Curtis and J. C. Frizel of
White Creek were in town early in the

Massett, B.C., Saturday, July 25,1914
It must be remembered by   all who
have  considered   it wise  to   take  up
homes on our island that the drawbacks
now encountered have  been the   lot of
pioneers in all   parts of  this  western
country.   Unfortunately  there   are no
industries and it will take years to clear
the land and have a source of  revenue
from the soil.     The fishing indsutry is
confined to the deep sea and our rivers
are small.   The one cannery operating
this year in the way of salting fish and
the whaling station are  not sources of
revenue locally.   The product goes out
and the industries, such as they are, have
their own local supply depots, furnishing
those employed with food and other
necessaries. Although we have several
mining companies operating, their crews
are not large and the results of their
labor bo far being in the line of prospecting and development work. If the
coal and oil drills reach beds of mineral
or fluid it will mean the building up of
cities and everything that tends to
make people prosperous. Along with
the hard times the government decided
to curtail expenditure and fewer men
are employed at road work. Capital
goes out instead of coming in, and the
result has been to make all feel discouraged. There is a great possibility
of the opening of the G. T. P. Railway
bringing a class of settlers with capital
enough to clear land and make the islands
the garden spot for Prince Rupert.
Vegetables and small fruit grows here
in abundance. Our growing seasons is
late bringing in fresh fruit when the
South is depleted, as California fruit
and vegetables are followed by the season in the South end of the Province.
If it is the land we must depend on
there should be found some way to
make it profitable without waiting years
to have it opened up. This way is by
assisting the pre-emptor who is willing
to work and who intends to stay on the
land. If we had a large number of
market gardeners it would mean prosperity. Surely in a Province that imports millions of dollars worth of fruit
and garden produce annually it would
not be an experiment to have our food
stuffs grown at home. The land is here;
the settlers are also here—and other
willing to come he?e. Large corporations and other countries are offering
a bonus to induce settlement on land—it
is necessary that the same assistance
should be given to build up a country
as large and productive as ours.

Spring Salmon Fishing
A question has arisen regarding the
statements made on the fishing ground flat Langara Island. It has been asserted
that the reports of past seasons were
exaggerated and that there is not any
reason for the good reports concerning
the large runs of spring salmon. We
have asserted that the spring salmon
runs in large numbers in that neighborhood and can find no reason to contradict
the statement. As usual in all undertakings some will succeed while others
appear to meet with misfortune. When
one owner of a gasoline boat turns in
to the cannery twelve hundred pounds
of fish in a day and an Indian draws $165
for five weeks fishing it must be apparent that fish can be caught there in
large numbers. The weather was not-
the best this year for the fishermen and
many made but a small sum from their
labor; but that is no reason for asserting that the fishing ground is not all we
claimed. Experienced fishermen appeared to do well, and it is a fact that
tons of fish were caught by the trailers.
It is safe to say that from seventy-five
to one hundred tons of spring salmon
were salted without considering the
' 'cohoe " salmon caught. The last mentioned fish were not cured in numbers
and the prices paid—ten cents per fish-
was small. The "white springs" only
brought twenty-five cents apiece
although some of them weighed up to
fifty pounds. When the reports from
the river canneries arrived of the large
runs there with the prices paid, the large
majority of Indians fishermen left the
coast fishing grounds and are now
engaged there. The run of "spring
salmon" is not ever; but the Wallace
Fisheries decided to close down and the
fishermen had no other dealers to turn
over their fish to,  necessitating  their

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 Prinee
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.
