Possible Oil Fields On Graham Island
Specially Written for the Vancouver World by R. C. Campbell-Johnston, M. E.
Rev. F. W. Kerr Married.
The science of geology for comparative analogy when searching for minerals and oils is an essential qualification to the mining engineer devoting his
whole life's energies to his profession,
and creates the dividing line between
his organized work and that of the unsophisticated plunger. The engineer
must formulate in his mind a theoretical basis as to how the oil and minerals
could originate and be stored up by
Nature, previous to any practical tests
made by drill-boring to bear out and
demonstrate his expectations. Scientists
to-day regard coal and petroleum as
having a common genesis, namely, from
organic matter, such as vegetable
growth, club-mosses, seaweeds, and
even animal life, as protoplasm, fish and
such like. Under one condition, name
ly, fresh water lagoons with perhaps
tropical climate, coal will ensue out of
rank vegetation of forests and undergrowth, -whereas under the waters of
salt-water lagoons, where the heavy
alkali ingredients have impeded the
generation of evaporation of hydor-
carbon gases, then instead of coal, oil
wells and pools result. When a body
decays the nitrogenous portions forming
lean flesh and muscles decompose first
and more rapidly, leaving the fat and
hydro-carbon tissues in the form of
corpse-wax, found in so many ancient
tombs, or ozokerite (natural paraffine
wax), or as oil shales, to probably be at
a later period softened and liquefied into
flowing oil by tertiary volcanic action in
its vicinity, and caused to follow the
laws of gravity, flow along the dip of
upheaved strata, and sink down from
many parts to a common centre. From
the above remarks, it is apparent that
although coal and oil may be in close
proximity, yet the oil need not be derived or distilled over from the coal unless the base is asphalturn; however,
with a paraffine base the oil can be derived directly from organic matter.
Another frequent attribute of oilfields also is their storage in and under
stratified rocks as sandstones of tertiary
period mostly eocene when marine and
plant life were superabundant.
On Graham Island, one of the Queen
Charlotte Group, there exist many factors to cause the practical geologist to
emphatically advise capital to instigate
a systematice organized search for oil,
having in the first instance mapped out
the dips, trend and topography of the
outcropping surface rocks, to locate and
avoid the existence of recent intrusive
volcanic rocks either actually showing
or known to be close at hand from the
burnt appearance or abnormally uptilted
character of these sedimentaries. Coal
seams of the Cretaceous period in geol
ogy exist, in situ and possibly the remnants of metamorphosed coal-bearing
strata of carboniferous era. Tertiary
volcanic intrusive rocks occur along the
west coast-line, also at Rose Spit, Meyer Lake, Point Ball, Lawn Hill, and
around the Skidegate Indian village,
extending north to the head of the Tel-
El River, these among other places. On
the eastern shore otherwise there is a
blanket of Eocene stratified formation,
overlaying the Cretaceous sedimentary
rocks, and stretching out apparently
throughout the whole with of Hecate
Staits to the fringe of the mainland.
These straits are comparatively shallow,
forming good halibut ground, and permitting their waters to be easily troubled
in a pale and worked into monstrous
ground swells. This was undoubtedly,
during a former time, an inland sea
having a rim of cretaceous rocks, acting
as the eastern margin with westerly
dip; outcropping on Banks, Porcher,
Pitt, Dundas (two) and Zayas Islands.
On the west of Graham Island a stu-
penduous subsidence of the present floor
of the ocean, rather than an elevation
of the land, at a few miles out has
created a depth of six hundred and more
fathoms, the home of the black cod.
This floor suggested to form part of the
lost continent of Lemuria, reaching far
away into the Indian Ocean and even to
Eastern Africa, a supposition gathered
from corresponding fauna found on the
isolated islands of these oceans.
Tar rocks and sands as bitumen stuff
occur in the north-west parts of Graham
Island, and ozokerite is floated in by
storms from the sea, broken off presumably by its restless force from the
sunken depths, where sections of the
down-throw of the rock formation occur.
All these enumerated phenomena auspiciously point to the present of the
subterranean oil fields somewhere in
these parts. This is likewise corroborated by the discovery of oil to the north
in Alaska at Katella, the highest boundary geologically of this special basin.
Piecing these data together and drawing a deduction to acton, all these would
lead the writer to advise that boreholes
be put down, preferrablyonthe westerly shallow shores of Hecate Straits on
the east side of Graham Island, as distant as possible from outbursting crests
of the volcanic rocks. The porous
Eocene sandstones, capped by water and
oil-proof conglomerates should carry oil
in underground pools, without affording
cracks, faults or broken anticlines to
perrpit or offer opportunities for a leak
from these deep seated flows, however
small the opening during hundreds of
thousands of years to drain off the entrapped oils.
A very pretty wedding took place at
the home of Dr. and Mrs. Grady, Miami,
Missouri, on the evening of Wednesday,
June 26th, when their daughter Mamie,
was united in marriage to Rev. F. W.
Kerr of Prince Rupert, B. C. Miss
Grady is a graduate of the State University of Missouri, and was attended
by seven girl graduates of her year.
The ceremony was conducted by Rev.
Dr. Black, president of Missouri Valley
College. In Chicago the bridal couple
were met by friends of the groom and
escorted to the Triangle Club, where a
marriage banquet was prepared. Mr.
and Mrs. Kerr are visiting the groom's
parents in Berlin, and will return in a
couple of weeks to take up their work
in Prince Rupert.—Toronto Globe.
Redistribution Bill Next Session.
From the present plans, the Dominion government will introduce and put
through at the next session of Parliament the Redistribution Bill based upon
the new census. It is probable that the
bill, after being presented will be referred to special committee of the
House. When the last Redistribution
Bill was before the House, not a great
deal of opposition was encountered outside the committee.
Premier Borden's Famous Speech.
Before the largest gathering of
British parliamentarians and public men
ever assembled at the Colonial Institute,
London, Hon. R. L. Borden, Canadian
Premier, delivered an historic address
that is the talk of the metropolis. Mr.
Borden, as guest responding to the
toast of honor, declared that Canada
stood for one king, one flag, one empire,
one navy, and that all Canadians sprang
from races that have never yet failed
to realize their responsibilities.
Severe Scalds Cause Death of Jap.
Unisuje Kakid, a Japanese employed
at Naden Harbor, died in the General
Hospital, Prince Rupert, from severe
scalds, the result of falling into a vat
of boiling water
These notes are penned not to create
any untoward local excitement and reckless speculation, but in a cold blooded
way to lay the evidence procurable
openly on-the table, as to the chances
for a successful enterprise, and to give
business men an opportunity to weigh
the pros, and cons, camly, and if they
will to procure drills to bore through the
supper strata with justified expectations
of discovering oil at the greater depth
where it is possible for the petroleum
to lie hid.

Mr. Campbell-Johnston's Advice.
Mr. R. C. Campbell-Johnston, the
well-known mining expert, may be considered an authority on Graham Island,
and his statement (which appears in
full on the first page) that oil is likely
to be found on the east coast of this
island deserves serious consideration.
The east coast is a much easier place
to work than the west coast, and we
look for some one with capital and
courage to put in a drill, say at the
Tel-El River or at any point that may
be decided on, and try his luck.

Prince Rupert's Welcome.
Premier Sir Richard McBride and
Hon. W. J. Bowser, K. C, arrived in
Prince Rupert last Monday, when an
address of welcome was presented by
the citizens. In the evening Sir Richard
and the Hon. Mr. Bowser addressed a
large public meeting in the Westholme
Theatre. On Tuesday the party visited
Hazelton, on Wednesday Granby Bay,
and Stewart on Thursday, returning to
Rupert on Friday morning en route
south. Mr. William Manson, M. P. P.,
endeavoured to get Sir Richard and Hon.
Mr. Bowser to visit the Islands, but it
was found impossible for them to come
over at this time, owing to important
business, necessitating their quick return to Victoria.
 o	
Several stalks of oats, 5 ft. 9 in. in
length and well headed, were on view
at the "Islander" office during the
week, grown on the ranch of Messrs.
Fairbairn & Johnston on Maude Island.
Strawberries over three inches in circumference were plucked on the same
ranch, and proves conclusively that the
soil is rich enough for the successful
culture of small fruit.
Mr. A. E. McMaster, general agent
for the G. T. P. R., Prince Rupert, who
was accompanied by Mrs. McMaster,
came over oh business and returned
again on the "John" last Monday.
The Princess Ena arrived at Aliford
Bay on Tuesday with 1000 barrels of
cement and another gasoline boat for
the Fisheries Co.
The Fisheries tug Fulsom left for
Rupert on Tuesday for supplies and
powder, returning Friday.
Mr. S. D. Horner returned last Monday from a business trip to Vancouver.
Mr. Bunning of the Westholme Lumber Co., Captain Parsons of the Edrie,
and B. J. Russell, are sailing on the
•' John'' today from Aliford Bay. Keen
regret is expressed on all sides at Mr.
Russell's departure, but it is hoped that
he will shortly return.
Walter Dass left on Wednesday for
Lockport to do assessment work on his
claims in that vicinity.
Fishing Station For West Coast.
Capt. H. S. Cameron of Vancouver,
who has been cruising in his power
sloop Gilford on the west coast of
Graham Island during the past few
weeks, arrived here on Thursday. Capt.
Cameron is interested in the fishing industry and was looking for the best
location to erect a station, comprising
of a cannery, saltery and cold storage,
on the west coast. Athlow Bay, Port
Lewis, Otard Harbor, and Cave Creek
were all visited and the Captain has
selected Athlow Bay as the most suitable place for the station. He holds
all the fishing rights from Rennel Sound
to Frederick Island, which he considers
are the best fishing grounds on this
coast. The Captain should know as he
has had many years of experience as a
practical fisherman on this coast, being
connected with well-known companys
and until recently was master of the
trawler Kingsway, of the Standard Fish
Co. The capital of the new company
has all been subscribed in Vancouver,
and it is expected that operations on
the new station will be commenced this
fall.
Minister Of Railways Visit North.
The Hon. Frank Cochrane, minister
of railways for the Dominion, accompanied by Mr. H. S. Clements, member
for the district, paid a visit to Prince
Rupert and made the journey up the
line to the end of steel. The Minister
had a busy time during his visit, which
was his first to this end of the national
transcontinental railway.
Picnic At Robertson Island.
Miss Cameron was the guest of honor
at a picnic given by the ladies of Queen
Charlotte on Thursday afternoon at
Robertson Island. The day was ideal
for such an occasion and the large party
had a glorious time roaming over the
beautiful island. About six o'clock the
company gathered together and partook
of an excellent lunch, returning home
later in the evening after a very
pleasant outing.
