Hallow'een In Good Land In The
Queenstown. Oeanda District
Many-hued, the swinging Japanese
lanterns played over the room, the
peculiar witchery of their light and
shade. Grey and rose, blue and gold,
high lights and low, all seemed to blend
in a magnetic harmony of color and
sound.
Here and there huge pumpkins hung
on the wall. The eandle flame burning
within limned in deep orange their grotesque and grinning faces of Hallow'een
tradition.
The setting was perfect and the
masqued dancers might have been taken
from a 18th or 16th century engraving,
so perfectly artistic were their costumes,
so demurely graceful the old-fashioned
waltzes, polkas and minuets. Quaintly
medieval also was the esthetic disregard
of period and place : bright-eyed
houris, whimsically oriental, swung
arm in arm with up to date, "dernier
cri " men of the world. High ladies of
the realm, powdered and befrilled, with
up-tilted chins, in distant aloofness held
theit pretty courts. Sybils and witches
and fairies of the starry night crossed
and recrossed in seeming con fusion and
lith^ome grace and in sly mischievous
humour swept long curtseys to unknown
cavaliers.
Pierrots and dominos lent there a
shadow here a bright note, while as
the paid jester of that motley crowd
Percy, the jester, moved in orbits all
his own	
Great was the fun when the masks
came off. Hand sought hand, friend
hailed friend, and the only music heard
was that of laughter.
Methinks the very spirits of youth and
gaiety were there incognito, for unheeded passed the sand man, unheeded
also the lures of the festive board, and
dance after dance followed dance again
till the wee small hours	
And this, I solemnly swear, is a true
chrenicleof the Hallow'een masquerade
and dance in the good town of Queenstown. By God's will and the sturdy
help of the burghers and their good
wives it duly came to pass on the last
day of October in the year of our Lord
nineteen hundred and thirteen.

The Bros. Wood of Sewall spent a few
days here this week.
Mrs. Oscar Wright arrived here on
Thursday from Carbondale, Pa., to join
her husband who has been resident here
some time, and occupying a position as
engineer with W. L. Barton.
B. A. Millard of Kundis Baydisposed
of a steer weighing over 500 lbs. last
week to local people. The beef was
excellent and showed what Graham
Island can do as a cattle raising country.
A correspondent, writing from Woden
River, says:
"It is reported that at least $2,000
will be spent on the Woden River and
East Coast trail next season, which,
considering that this trail is the only
means of communication with the outside world, possessed by quite a settlement on the south branch of the Oeanda,
will be some help towards getting into
shape some of the finest land on Graham
Island.
"This land of which there is a large
body on the south and west branches of
the Oeanda, is settling up slowly as it
is hard of access at present, but on
account of its open nature and easy
drainage will no doubt some time in the
near future be one of the pleasantest
districts in which to live on the whole
of Graham Island.
"The gardens already started here
show signs of great promise and next
year the showing will be of considerable
value to people looking for land that
will produce something worth while."

Graham Centre Literary Club.
The Graham Centre Literary and Debating Club met last Saturday evening,
the Rev. H. H. K. Greene in the chair.
Two very interesting papers were read,
which led up to lively discussion by the
members. A meeting of the executive
was called for Monday at 3 p.m. to discuss business and arrange a programme
of entertainment for Nov. 15th. At the
meeting on Monday the following programme was arranged and the entertainment will take place in the Church
hall: 1, Duet, Miss Adam and Capt.
MacTavish ; 2, Song, Rev. H. H. K.
Greene; 3, Comic Song, Capt. MacTavish ; 4, Games, (a) I have been to
Paris; (b) Who am I; (c) Observation
table; 5, Coffee; 6, Reading, by one of
the committee. At the end of the season the committee will award-a prize to
the person securing the largest number
of points in the competitions.
 o	
Mrs. Wallace, who has spent the past
few months with her parents, Mr.
and Mrs. Rudd of Queenstown, leaves
for her home at Lethbridge this week.
Miss Cross won the prize for the best
lady's costume, and Philip Hughes the
gent. '■ at the Masquerade Dance held
on Hallow'een. Messrs. Nash and Mac-
Dougall were the judges.
Elder Watson, of the Seventh Day
Adventists, held a service here last
Saturday night. The Elder is a capable
speaker and his discourse was listened
to with great attention and enjoyed
very much by the large number present.

The Early Bird
Readers Are Requested to Emu-
late His Example.
The Early Bird, as his name implies, does not, need to be awakened by an alarm clock, but from
natural temperament and characteristics is always on the spot—
ready when the first material
benefit offers itself. Just so with
the early subscriber. He gets
the big end of the stick by sending or bringing in his order at the
beginning of a big offer.
We now submit a similar advantage to everyone within the zone
of our possible circulation. We
will give our paper, and "The
Weekly Mail and Empire," from
now till January lst, 1915, for $3.
To thope who have already subscribed to The Islander during the
past three months we will let
them in on this offer by a payment of $1.00.
How do we do it at the price ?
Well, we have made special arrangements with the big Metropolitan Weekly, by which both of
us hope to increase our circulation, even although attained at a
sacrifice of regular rates.
We might inform our readers
that The Weekly Mail and Empire
will, right away, publish a new
serial story, by Conan Doyle,
"The Poison Belt," which is
equal to the best from the pen of
that gifted writer.

GRAHAM CENTRE
The opening service in the Anglican
church was held last Sunday morning,
a large congregation being in attendance
The Rev. H. H. K. Greene preached
an excellent sermon.
Messrs. Wormald and Shaw, the contractors for the new church, deserve
great credit for the very excellent work
they have done in ■ the erection of the
new building. The community are of
opinion that no worthier men could have
been engaged in the work.
It is with regret we learn that Mr.
Shaw intends to put in a large part of
his time hunting this winter, as it will
mean we will not see as much of him in
the near future as we have in the past.
Ducks and geese are to take the place
of bacon and beans in his larder. We
have a hunch however that he will return to the bacon and beans before
spring.
Mr. and Mrs. O'Flynn, who opened
the hotel on the townsite some weeks
ago, express themselves as well satisfied
with their location and business prospects. Some of Mr. and Mrs. O'Flyn's
friends are expected to take up their
residence amongst us in the near future.
Mr. and Mrs. Dunroe and family have
arrived here and are well satisfied with
their surroundings. They had quite a
business locating here as they had all
their live stock as well as household
effects to bring in. It took them several
days to get squared around, but now
they are quite at home we extend a
hearty welcome and hope to see them
among us for many years to come.
Mr. Thorne of the telegraph construction gang has been busy on the townsite
during the last two or three days repairing a break on the line and stringing a second wire from Kundis Narrovs
to Queenstown.
The launch Queen has just returned
from a trip to Massett where she was
held up for a few days on account of
the bad weather. She towed up a scow
load of coal and machineryfor Mr. Barton of Queenstown.
A meeting of the Overseas Club will
be held Saturday, Nov. 8th at 3 p.m.
for the purpose of enrolling new
members.
Mr. Adam, the genial real estate man
of the townsite, reports that enquiries
are brisk in his line of business, and
that several deals have been put through
dnring the last few weeks.

It is not often that newspaper men
air grievances, or direct attention to the
lack of patronage doled out to those who
assist most materially in  the opening
up of a country.   We are not endeavoring to find any fault  with  those  who
realize  that a weekly newspaper is a
good adjunct to a rising section of the
province.     Our product does not lie on
shelves, awaiting  the  advent of  customers, or rising and falling with the
market price of commodities.     Every
week means work and worry, with something new to place before the  readers
and the dissemination  of information
far and wide.   Within the four walls of
the printing office, there is the type to
"set; " the rollers to make ; the press
to clean and work;   paper to  be  prepared; news  to  gather, and a host of
little difficulties to overcome.     Where
a newspaper appears in large communities there is the opportunity to garner
a fortune ; but it is different where the
pioneer printer takes upon himself the
duties of editor,   reporter,  typesetter
and "devil," all in one.     In  the new
settlement the two dollars annua! subscription is less than half a day's wages,
and it takes a good many  "subs"   to
pay a printer  and  publisher a decent
salary.     Two "cartwheels" will carry
quite  a load,   and  two  silver  "cartwheels" take quite a load off the mind
of the country editor.     Now and then
some  enterprising  advertiser  appears
and informs the. public   through our
columns of the wares he has to dispose
of.   His welcome addition to a depleted
treasury   gladdens  the   heart   of   the
pioneer publisher.   Betimes, some legal
notices appear, forwarded by those who
remember that there is a newspaper in
the district, and now and  then a few
public advertisements find their way to
enliven the columns.   The editor is expected   to  extend  the  "glad hand"
when called on, and to  sympathize in
the proper place and manner; he is like
a loving parent, with no time to raise a
family of his own.  In fact, some people
imagine that a newspaper is a charitable
institution, to give free space and publicity when called upon to do so.     Politicians and ministers look to him for all
that is good, while those who transgress
the law are anxious that the bad side
of life shall not be exposed. He must
boost and boom, when necessary, and
cannot knock anyone or anything. For
many years it is' 'nip and tuck" whether
the country editor ekes out more than
a bare existence; but he always carries
on his desk a publication termed "The
Gentleman from Indiana," and when
the dull world appears in a deeper haze
than of Alaska volcanic ash, the editor
looks forward, as all editors do, to a
happy old age among the people he
induced to take up their home in a land
fairer and healthier than any other
portion of the Dominion.

Blight-Proof Potatoes Moonlight On The Trail
Provincial Government Will Have Experiments Made With Them.
Further, evidence that the Department of Agriculture is determined to
leave no stone unturned to give the
farmers of the province the benefit of
the latest discoveries in farm development is again patent in the announcement by Mr. J. C. Ready of the soil and
crops division of the department that
an effort is being made to secure samples
of the new blight-and-frost-resisting
potat es from New Zealand.
Immediately on the publication of the
news of this important discovery the
Department of Agriculture wrote to the
New Zealand authorities asking that
specimens of the new product - be sent
to this province for experimental purposes.
On their arrival the potatoes will be
alloted to some of the leading potato
growers who will make careful experimental tests and submit the records of
growth to the Minister of Agriculture..
It i« probable that half the consignment
will be planted in the Delta district and
the remainder sent to some farmer in
the northern section of the province.
The soils and crops division of the
department is also making arrangements with the Canadian Seed Growers'
Association for tbe supply of a consignment of registered seed oats, and, if
the negotiations are successful, these
oats will be distributed to farmers
throughout the province at cost price.
You talk about your palace cars,
Your yachts arid motor wheels ;
A tandem team, your coach and four,
Likewise .automobiles.
Your roller and your ice skates,
Balloons that skyward sail;
But you've never rode with huskies
In the moonlight on the trail.
Moonlight on the trail,
I'm starting with my bride;
To a mining eamp that's distant—
We've two hundred miles to ride;
O'er mountains that are snow capped,
O'er stream and frozen dale;
Still happy in our honeymoon,
In the moonlight on the trail.
You talk about your Ferris wheel,
Your bump the.bumps as well;
Your trolly-cars, your ferry-boats, .
And loop the loop so swell;
Your toboggans and ice-boats,
The mono on one rail,
But give me six good huskies
In the moonlight on the trail.
You talk about your saddle horse,
And donkeys in the park;
Your whirley-gig, your figure eight,
When out upon a lark \
Your motor and your row-boats,
But you'd find 'em mighty stale,
After skimming in your Yukon
In the moonlight on the trail.

Settlers Want Bridge
Across Kundis Narrows
Monster Petition Sent to Minister of
Public Works.
r
The manner in which Massett Inlet,
in fact the whole of the northern half
of Graham Island, is attracting the attention of the public is shown by the
amount of settlement which has taken
place during the past year, and the
amount of construction work which both
the Provincial and Dominion Governments have had carried out during the
past season. New wharves have been'
built at Massett, Woden, Nadu and'
Queenstown. New schools have been
established at Queenstown and Woden,
and the mail service has been considerably improved. It is only acouple of years
ago that many of the settlers had to
travel 30 to 40 miles to get their mail,
while now we have post offices at Mas-
- sett, Woden, Tow Hill and Graham
Centre, as well at Tl-el River on the
East Coast. The telegraph and telephone line, which has just been completed, is also another great benefit.
In addition to all this work many r&ads,
trails and bridges have been built to
facilitate settlement in the interior of
j the island. The bridge between Massett
j and Delkatla to wns ites is the largest on
! the islands and has proved of immense
j benefit to the district. These improvements show a marked advance in progress and development, which is very
gratifying to the old timers who pinned
their faith oh the island. There are,
however, still some improvements
needed in our Queenstown district. The
two most important of which areola
bridge at Kundis Bay Narrows and the
dredging out of Kundis Slough divide.
The bridge at Kundis Bay Narrows is
very important and should receive the
attention of the Government in the
estimates for the ensuing year. In fact
it is considered by the settlers of Massett Inlet as essentially necessary that
this bridge should be built, and a
monster petition carrying over a
hundred names has been forwarded to
the Hon. the Minister of Public Works,
soliciting his consideration of this much
needed woik. Taken all in all, Graham
Island has reason to be proud of its
pioneers, and although some imagine ^.
that mistakes have been made in the
past in the expenditure of public funds
through mistaken endeavour, the intention has been good, and for the general
welfare of the settlers. When everything is taken into consideration we
note with pride, that the work accomplished has been of the greatest benefit
in the development and opening up of
our island.
