comes Royal Party
Skidegate Band Won
tup ror Ifaird lime
King's weather greeted the royal
party on their arrival at Prince Rupert
last Monday. The steamer Princess
Alice arrived punctual to the minute
and at th^ entrance to the harbor was
met by a large fleet of boats all gaily
(Ji'e&S'ed with flags, while salutes were
fired as the loy'al steamer docked and
national and patriotic airs were played
by the bandn. Earl Greys' rifles and
the Vetran's Brigade acted as a guard
of honor. Immediately following the
disernbarftreent His Royal Highness inspected the guard of honor and then an
■addie s of we'c.ine  v. as presented   by
The affair, which was attended by a
large audience, and was also graced for
a short time by the presence of the
royal party, was one of the events of
the day. The playing of the several
bands was excellent and a revelation to
many of those present wh.o had no idea
uf the musical ability and proficiency of
the Indians of this northern country.
Altogether seven bands took part in the
contest—Skidegate, Port Simpson, Kit-
katla, Metlakatla, Ayainsh, Kincolith.
The Skidegate band won the cup for
first prize for playing-the overture, the
Kitkatlas receiving a cup for second
place. The Port Simpsons carried off
the cup for the grand march.
Not the least pleasing and importan-
part of the competition was the present
tation of the prizes to the leaders of the
winning bands at the Westholme Opera
House by H. R. H. the Duke of Con-
naught during the Hospital concert.
Although the weather on Tuesday
was   m>t    all     that   could     be     de
stop  was   made   and   lunch   was
partaken of. The general superintendent's private dining room
on the special car was provided
for the royal members of the
party and a second car was fitted
up temporarily as dining quarters for the rest of the guests and
accompanying officials. The return journey was made in slow
time an enable the visitors to
thoroughly, take in the scenery
and get a proper idea of the immensity of the country and the
possibilities of the vast agricultural district at the back of Prince
Rupert, [lis Royal Highness has
in his frequent allusions to the
G.  T.  P.   railroad  evidenced  the
Mayjr Newton. The Overseas Club al-
su presented a loyal address. Then fol-
1 v,ed the p esentation of Indian chiefs
and tho e who had been chosen to re-
ce ve recognition from his Royal Highness. This was followed by an auto-
m/oile tour of the city under the guidance of the Mayor and escorted by
mounted police. A luncheon was tendered the Royal Party in the Prince
Rupert Inn by the Canadian Club.
In the afternoon in perfect weather
the massed Indian bands assembled on
the Government wharf to take part in
probably the greatest bund competition
that has ever taken place in the North.
sired,  the  trip  made  up  the line
of  the  G. T.  P. by 11.  R. il.  the
Governor General and party ou
the special train provided for the
occasion proved of great interest and was much enjoyed by the
royal party. The train, which
was under the immediate charge
of the general superintendent of
lie line, Mr. \V. C. C. Mehan, accompanied by Mr. G. A. Mc-
Nicholl, superintendent, and Mr.
A. K. McMaster, the general
ageiat', left about tl a. m., reaching   Van   Arsdol   at   1,   where   a
interest he takes in everything to
do with this the latest great
railroad enterprise in British
North America. On the way down
afternoon tea was served at 4:30,
the city being reached again
about fifteen minutes later, the
t rain drawing up opposite the
Princess Alice. The royal party
went on board immediately. The
beautiful decorations of the cars
with flowers furnished by Mrs.
Eggert from her own garden were
much admired by the royal
guests.

LAUNDRY
Desirable Settlers.
It  is  not because a man takes up a
pre-emption in any part of this country
that he is the only one entitled to  the
name of "settler."    The term applies
to every man whcThitends making his
living and helping to advance the section
of country in which  we all  live.    The
store-keeper, the mill man,-trl&contrac-
tor, the tradesman and the working-man
are all settlers in the full sense of the
term.   There is room here for all kinds
and conditions, with  the  exception of
the   man  with  what  is   known  as   a
'' grouch.''  The loud-mouthed advocate
of " I-I-I-ism," who is continually shaking a red rag in the face of his neighbor,
and  attempting  to  defeat everything
that does not originate from the scatter-
brains  of  the " Ond-and-only-one," is
an obstruction in the wheels of progress
—an infinitesimal speck  that  lets  out
screeches; but is ultimately ground so
fine that the noise finally subsides, and
the wheels move along without let or
hindrance.     Roosevelt, a candidate for
the Presidency, shook his big stick and
claimed  the  earth—the whole earth—
and nothing but the  earth;   there  are
other "stick-shakers " that require suppressing.     They are continually on the
rounds, torch in hand—peering into the
darkness   and  exposing  themselves to
ridicule and contempt.     Now and then
they let out a "squeak" and the little
world we live in knows they live.    Discontented, and with a hunger  for  the
scalps of those who stand in their way,
they will use every subterfuge to break
up the harmony in a community, without   any  compunction  regarding   consequences.     In the language of Shakespeare: " Out upon such men."    Their
very presence fills the atmosphere with
rancid fumes, and their words are but
a reflection  of their venom and bitter
spite.     W/hat country, we ask, wants
such people ? In their supercilious minds
 the Napoleon's of  finance and strategy—in the minds of the people but a
hindrance to progress.     Are there any
such "settlers" in our neighborhood?
If they exist in the vicinity of any of
our neighbors, they are  a  menace  to
society.     The   days  of   "I-ism"   and
demagoguery are  over.     Every  field,
even to the newspaper owner and editor,
must bow to the will of the  majority.
A shake and  a smile,   under  all  conditions, are what the settler looks  for
from Christian men and women.     We
like the shake, but prefer the smde.
(Prince Rupert Daily News)
In the "Queen Charlotte Islander"
appears an item of interest to all who
have the prosperity of the Islands and
Prince Rupert at heart. The first agricultural exhibition on Graham Island
will be held on October 8th, at Lawn
Hill, under the auspices of the East
Coast of Graham Island Farmers'
Institute. Prizes are offered for vege-
tab'e and grain exhibits. This occasion
is realty a gre.ai one, however small its
acLUa. appearance. Only this spring
the Dvimmon Government Labor Cor-
resp^ji.iexit for Prince Rupert District
wa. abuged to return blank '.o the de-
pa; liiiciiL the schedules sent out asking
for re til i hs ox wage-rates paid agricultural laborers during the past decade.
Of agriculture such as employs labor
witn a regular wage-scale there was
none in sight. Next spring should see
a difference now that the Queen Charlotte Islands can put on an exhibition
of farm produce. And the difference
won't mean any less prosperity for
Prince Rupert.

Because the laws of the Dominion

desire in the regulation of their community.

carefully trained parents, as nearly like
a human being can be raised. When
ready for schooling every effort will be
put forth to develop his mind along lines
that will fairly tax his mental capacity
to assimilate human knowledge.

Prince    Rupert,     B. C. QUEEN CHARLOTTE ISLANDER
Liberal Statesman Dies ROYALTY VISIT
Ottawa, Sept. 25.—Tributes of
warm praise and extreme regret
at the passing of Sir Richard John
Cartwright, G. C. M. G., P. C,
who died Monday, were expressed
here today by Sir Wilfrid Laurier,
lion. It. L. Borden, Senator
Lougheed, leader of the government in the senate, and others.
All agree that the dead statesman was without peer in debate
and that his distinction was unequalled. Premier Borden said
ihat he was one of the greatest
figures in the public life of Canada. Sir Wilfrid Laurier declared that in the passing of Sir
Richajd he had lost a personal
friend whose many good qualities
were known only by being in
close contact with him.
Sir Richard Cartwright was the
son of the late R. D. Cartwright,
chaplain to the forces at Kingston, Ont., and was the grandson
of Hon. Richard Carftvright, formerly judge of the common pleas
in Upper Canada and afterward
a member of the legislature of
that province. He was born at
Kingston, December 14th, 1835,
and was educated at Trinity Colic g-c, Dublin. He first entered
Parliament as member for Lennox and Addington in 1863, and
continued to sit for those constituencies until confederation. From
that time until 1878 he represented Lennox, when he was defeated at the general election,
but was selected to sit for Centre
Huron at a bye election. He was
elected again at a bye election in
1883 for S. Huron. Later he
was elected to represent Oxford,
lie was finance minister under the
Mackenzie administration. Was
created K. 0. M. G. in 1879. On
the return of the Liberal party
iu 1896 he became minister of
trade and commerce. He was
the recipient of jubilee honors
from Queen Victoria in 1897, receiving Grand Cross of the Order
of St, Michael and St. George.
On several occasions during the
absence of Sir Wilfrid Laurier he
acted as premier. He was made
a member of the Imperial Privy
Council in 1892. He was summoned to the senate in 1904.
PARLIAMENT TO
OPEN NOVEMBER
H. if?. H. the Duke of Connaught
Visited   Simpson   and   Was
Presented with Address.
Before leaving here yesterday
morning His Royal Highness expressed his desire to sail as far
north as the Alaskan boundary
line. Accordingly, -when the
Princess Alice left here she
headed for the North, where the
steamer patrolled the line to the
junction of the Portland Canal
and Naas tSraits. From there
she went to Port Simpson.
A stop was made at Port Simpson and a royal welcome was
given the Duke by the Indians,
who entertained him with a band
concert.
, Princess Patricia and her
mother joined the Duke in his
trip ashore and visited the chief's
wife, where the Duchess was
presented with a handsome paddle
and His Royal Highness was presented with an address by the
chief.
Totem poles and slate platters
were given to the visitors by the
Indians as mementos of their
visit.
The Methodist Church was inspected, as were also the historic
buildings of the Hudson's Bay
Company.

vy. B. Cornish, Post Office Clerk,
Wjns   Large   Prize   in   Vancouver Puzzle Competition.
-o-
That four of the New England
Company's boats will fish out of
1 his port was the statement made
by Mr. A. L. Hager, managing director of the company, who was
in Prince Rupert on. Sunday on
his way back to Vancouver from
Ketchikan, where his company
operates a fishing plant.
Prince Rupert is a more convenient port to harbor the halibut fleet in, and it will no doubt
become the headquarters of the
fish companies as soon as the
railroad is completed.
Who wouldn't spend five minutes in figuring out the hardest
puzzle if they were sure that'they
vvould receive $135 for it? Mr.
W. B. Cornish, of the post office
staff, however, was not sure of
his reward when he concentrated
his brain to the task of solving
a picture riddle which appeared
in the Vancouver Daily Sun advertising columns.
The Montelius Piano House, of
Vancouver, was advertising prizes
for the solution of a complex
picture puzzle. Mr. Cornish sent
in the correct answer and yesterday received by mail the sum
of -$135.
He is today receiving the congratulations of his many friends,
who hope that his ingenuity may
again bring him the reward that
he deserves.
