Fine Display in G. T. P. Ticket Office
Much Admired.
In Adminstration of Government Road
Work at Lawn Hill and District.
Occupying the entire window of one
side of the G. T. P. ticket office on
Centre street, says the Prince Rupert
Daily News, is a fine exhibit of vegetables that have been grown this summer in the neighborhood of Queen Charlotte City, on Graham Island
The display, which consists of a portion of the exhibits that were shown at
the Lawn Hill exhibition a week ago,
though necessarily having suffered somewhat from repeated handling and transit, are in excellent shape, and rivals
anything that could be shown by
farmers in any part of the Dominion.
Sizing up the exhibit and noticing the
size and quality of the varied display,
which includes potatoes, cabbage, cauliflower, beets, carrots, turnips, parsnips, mangels, horseradish, together
v/ith grain and timothy grass, two things
are impressed upon one's mind—first,
the undoubted richness and fertility of
the soil of the islands, and, secondly,
the excellent and intelligent class of
settler that must be there to produce
such results.
Exhibits such as this one, and others
from the fertile valleys of the Skeena,
prove indubitably that we have a vast
agricultural country tributary to Prince
Rupert, which, in the very near future,
and upon the completion of the railroad,
when settlers will throng in to take up
the land and get ready for farming
operations, will put us upon a par from
an agricultural standpoint with any
portion of the Dominion. Prince Rupert is in a fair way to have the local
market supplied with farm products
grown in the surrounding district.
 O	
Ladies' Aid Re-orgamzed,
In spite of the barkings of the Victoria Times anent the roads on Graham
Island, the meeting held last Saturday
at Lawn Hill proves that the settlers
of that district are very well satisfied
with the work done during the past
season. The meeting was largely
attended and was for the purpose of
looking into the requirements for next
season. It is satisfactory to note that
a vote of confidence was passed in the
administration of the road work in the
district this season. Everybody expressed themselves as being well satisfied with the amount of work accomplished and that the Government had
done so much in opening up the settlement of Graham Island.

Prince Rupert Police Do Good Turn.
Joe Renner returned last Monday
from the camp of the B. C. Oilfields on
the west coast. He reports steady progress and everyone cheerful in camp.
Skidegate now having the requisite
number of children for a school, the
matter should receive.attention at once.
AI Daice, a local rancher, left last
Tuesday for Los Angeles, Cal., on a
visit for several months.
Mr. Wilfaed V. Doughty, managing
director for the B. C. Fisheries, has returned from a business trip to Victoria.
Mr. and Mrs. Turner who arrived
recently, are now located near Miller
Creek. Mr. Turner has taken up a preemption and brought in his household
effects and other supplies, as well as a
number of pure-bred Angora goats.
The G. T. P steamer Prince John
brought over 20 tons of ice, besides a
large quantity of general freight, for
the B. C. Fisheries at Aliford Bay last
Monday. The "John" did not reach
Queen Charlotte until Tuesday forenoon.
At a meeting held at the home of Mr.
and Mrs. Hagen on Thursday afternoon
the Ladies' Aid in connection with the
local Presbyterian Church was reorganized for the winter. Officers were
elected as follows : President, Mrs.
Jack ; vice-president, Mrs. Johnston ;
secretary-treasurer, Mrs. Barge. It
was agreed to hold a business meeting
on the last Thursday of each month.
A Prince Rupert correspondent relates
a story whereby the good offices of the
police of that city saved a local man his
"stake" of $170. It appears that the
man in question, who, by the way,
worked for the local fisheries company,
went over to Prince Rupert to meet
some friends from the south. On their
non-appearance he thought something
was necessary to revive his drooping
spirits and be more cheerful, so made
a tour-of the city, paying pretty regular
visits to the saloons and imbibing not
wisely but too well. Not being accustomed to such high life at Skidegate
and Aliford Bay, it somewhat got the
best of him. The authorities took him
in hand and but for that he would have
been minus his $170. Next morning he
was directed to a well known banking
institution where his friends, the police,
had deposited his money, and advising
him at the same time to open an
account there.
— o	
The population of the Islands has
greatly increased during the past few
months. With a few more industries
like the B. C. Fisheries locating on the
islands the worst of our pioneering days
will be over.
Mrs. Strachan and family arrived at
Skidegate last Monday from Scotland.
Trawlers Commence Fishing Today
The steam trawlers Triumph and
Canada, of the B. C. Fisheries fleet,
have arrived at Aliford Bay after their
16,000 mile trip from Grimsby, Eng.
The former arrived Wednesday and the
latter on Friday.
Both vessels are being prepared to
commence fishing and it is expected
that they will be ready to start today
for the west coast of the Queen Charlottes. For the present it has been decided not to send the boats to Behring
Sea, but to fish in home waters.
 o	
G. T. P. Engineer Will Return.
Mr. A. J. Beaudette, mining engineer
with the G. T. P. Railway Co., who
recently spent a week here looking over
the coal lands on the east coast, was
well satisfied with what he saw. He
was unable to make more than a cursory examination, the weather at the
time being unreliable, and the small
craft plying along the coast do not care
to go out on an extended trip, and a
visit to the west coast was found impracticable. However, Mr. Beaudette
will return in April, when a thorough
and exhaustive study will be made.

Real Estate Booms.
the God-given means of enjoyment of
health and vigor, they appear to recklessly spend year after year dependents
on the increasing value of a fifty foot
lot. On one of our farms, away from
the cares and worries of city life, there
is emancipation for the thousands who
desire to better their condition, and, at
the same time, to aid in building up a
country with sturdy descendants.
Queen Charlotte
LAUNDRY
-O	
It must be apparent to any sensible
observer that the day of the real estate
" boomer" is at hand.     There appears
to be seasons  for  all things, and the
circulation   of   money   in the  cities,
especially on  the  Pacific Coast, in the
, purchase of town lots makes the hearts
of the vendors glad.     Our islands have
not yet reached the " booming " stage,
and the land is bought and  sold at its
real  value.    We are not believers in
the "boomers" who infest our neighbouring cities.  The paying of thousands
and hundreds of thousands of dollars for
a fifty foot lot may be a good business
proposition,   and those who purchase
must do with their eyes open ; but it is
not in the cities that the wealth of a
country is  produced.     '' Back to the
land" has been the slogan of all the
economists, and the high price of living
can be laid at the door  of those who
will continue to live in the busy marts,
ignoring  the opportunities extant   to
better their condition by becoming producers.     There is land in plenty within
a short distance of our towns and cities.
The people are  hungering for many
things that the soil can produce.   Land
in the neighborhood of cities, which is
very high, is not more prolific  in pro-
during food than the land some distance
away.   There was no reason for the
high price of potatoes, hay  and other
produce last winter.     If the land produces all we eat and all we wear, and
is the mainstay of every country, it is
not     where    the    commodity    called
"money"  is handled that the people
will  obtain   their  wealth.     The  full
dinner pail can always be found in the
farm house and there is no reason for
the poverty seen in the large centres
of population.     We have fish galore ;
land is  ready for  the  pre-emptor to
make a good living for himself and his
family, and to help feed the non-producer.     We have no frosts or pests to
destroy  our crops.    The  hundreds   of
thousands of dollars  which were paid
for town lots recently in an adjacent
city would bring grist to many thousands
if expended in farming lands.     Our
wealth of coal, oil and timber is lying
dormant for want of capital.     Where

The New Preservative Process for Fish
and Meats will do what all the
Politicians are unable to do, viz.:
Reduce The Price of Living.
In "Ice and Refrigeration" of Chicago, 111., for October, reproduced from
"Cold Storage" of London, England,
appears the following article, which, as
a correspondent says, is as important
to British Columbia as the coal near the
coast is:
"The discovery of a preservative
process, the coming competitor of refrigeration, is the invention of an
English lawyer, named Heming. It
consists of an airtight and pressure resisting compartment into which C. O. 2
gas is introduced up to a pressure of
five or six atmospheres. This is done
in order to rid the article to be preserved of all its constituent air, it being
necessary for the complete success of
the process to rid internal tissues of
the article of every molecule of air replacing that with carbonic acid gas,
which does not support life putrefactive
or otherwise. This is effected it is
claimed, according to a well known law
of gases by means of alternately admitting C. O. 2 and exhausting the
atmosphere of the compartment. It is
said that a single operation of this kind
takes anything from twenty to forty
minutes to accomplish and is repeated
every few hours for several days. A
public demonstration of the process in
its application to fish, has taken place
at the London office of the Quebec
Government, with, it is said, satisfactory results. Moreover, the British
Columbian rights of the invention have
been sold to the British Columbian
Fisheries Ltd., a new company of which
Sir George Doughty, a member of the
British Parliament and a leader of the
British fishing industry, was the principal founder. Australian mutton and
Argentine beef have been successfully
treated by the process.''

i/aidas ana ineir Legends.
By Mr. Charles Harrison.
i4rtic/e XXII—Medicine Men of the Haidas.
These ceremonies were conducted in
strict accordance with ancient and traditional usage. As soon as the person
was ready to be fully initiated and allowed to return to the village and take
his last degree in the presence of all
the people, the principle medicine man
in the village gave notice that on a
certain day the; hew devil doctor would
reappear in their midst and all were
warned to be very careful in regard to
their behaviour. When he is seen first
approaching a great outcry is made as
one of the indispensable conditions for
success in his future life is that he shall
partake of human . flesh, and this he
must bite from the first person met
with on bis return to. civilization. At
the first outcry therefore all persons
naturally ran in doors .save one unfortunate individual that by prearrange-
ments had to remain outside to gratify
the newly made medicine man's cannibal
like propensity for .human food. Thus
an innocent and defenceless person had
to suffer to satisfy this demand for
human flesh as a stepping stone for this
sacred office of healing. The person so
selected to undergo this torture was
generally a slave belonging to the tribe
of which the newly fledged Sa-ag-ga
was a member. The newly instructed
then entered a house where all the
people were assembled and was introduced by one of the older medicine men
to the audience as a member of the Sa-
ag-ga fraternity. He then went through
several performances of singing, dancing, yelling, using the rattle, and beating the drum until all the people were
fully satisfied that in him they had a
doctor capable of preserving them from
the power of evil, and one whose knowledge of medicine would assist them in
times of sickness. A feast was then
proclaimed and after all had enjoyed
the feast in his honor, congratulatory
speeches were made until the dancing
commenced and Jthusthe arrival of a
new medicine man. was heralded to all
the tribes. These medicine men were
supposed to be the servants of the Good
Spirit or the Chief above, and they
acted in the capacity of intercessors or
mediators, and it was generally thought
by the old Haidas that they owed their
very existence and all the good things
necessary, to their self-preservation to
the powers inherent in these devil, doctors. Through being able to communicate as the ancients believed with the
spirits they became further instructed
into the mysteries of their profession,
and were empowered to use the sacred
rattle of the spirits at the bedside of
any sick person.    They were also entrusted with the sacred drum, which
they alone could use during the ceremonial initiation of the novices and at
all feasts and dancing performances.
They however always  took great care
that the fees amounted to the full payment for any of this work that was required of them before thoy consented to
act.  These rattles and drums were also
used during times of scarcity of food
and of sickness, in invocations and in
making peace with the invisible spirits
and gods that were oppressing them.
In byegone days the Haidas had no idea
that anyone could die a natural death
They universally described the death of
any one who died through sickness or
disease to the influence of some evil
spirit inherent in one of the tribe to
which the sick man belonged.     Sometimes this evil spirit was located in the
body of a slave and its influence would
pass from the slaves body into that of
the. siek person.    The services of the
devil doctor was procured to determine
the person in whom this evil   spirit
existed, and he was generally doomed
to death.    The general mode of pro-
ceedure when any one had died or was
about to die, was for the friends of the
sick man to pay their fees to the doctor
of their tribe.    He would then call all
the people of the village together in one
of the large weha houses for the purpose of  hunting out this evil spirit.
This would only be done after all his
singing, yelling, blowing and dancing
around the bed of the sick man had
proved of no avail.     When all were
assembled a harmless mouse was held
in the doctors hand and in his full attire
as a medicine man he would walk slowly  around the assembly holding  the
mouse facing each man,  woman and
child as he passed.    The person before
whom the mouse moved his head was
looked upon as the instigator of the
sick man's disease,   and in  order to
annihilate and exercise the influence of
the evil spirit within the sick man, and
to punish the person for causing the
spirit to enter the sick man's body, the
person thus accused was generally condemned to death by burning.    No one,
however, was condemned to die unless
the sick man died.    A penalty in the
shape of blankets and goods then sufficed
should he recover for any inconvenience
he had been caused. The great peculiarity of these evil spirits that causod
sickness and death was,that they were
generally found to inhabit the bodies of
slaves, and a slave being valued at a
low figure the death of several did not
incommode . the ancient Haidas very
much. Thus as we have seen when
sickness occurred the medicine man
must be called in by the sick man's
friends to exercise the evil spirit or its
influence that has got into the sick
man's body, and this he does by every
means in his power. In cases of serious
sickness before the mouse medicine was
tried the devil doctor came to tbe
patient's bedside prepared for a long
battle with the powers of evil, and was
never seen in full battle array without
his rattle, charms and drum. The sick
man was generally surrounded by all
able to gain admittance to this ceremony

and the sick man's friends sometimes
joined in helping the doctor with his
singing, yelling, rattling and drumming,
until a vertiable pandemonium existed,
with noise sufficient to kill any ordinary
sick person. Noise, however, seemed
to be the chief ingredient of the doctor's
prescription when called to the sick
man's bedside, and should the doctor
show signs of fatigue and appear weary
and tired, he was generally urged to
renewed vigour by promises of valuable
properties to be given him Dy the sick
man's friends should he ultimately recover. The faith of the patient in the
doctor's power had much to do with his
recovery for the old Haidas had the
same implicit confidence in tite Sa-ag-ga
that white children have in their physicians when called in to see them in
times of sickness. The ceremonies, incantations, rattling, yelling, singing and
drumming were well calculated to inspire this feeling in the sick man, and
the effect thus produced on his mind
undoubtedly reacted favorably upon his
physical organization. Should the person however, die, then a poor slave
doubtless had also to die for being the
remote cause of his death. The last

of the medicine man for causing an evil
influence or evil spirit to enter the body
of his chief which resulted in the chief's
death took place about eighteen months
prior to my arrival. The poor slave
i^as firmly bound with wire and placed
close by the side of a very hot fire made
especially for this occasion in the dead
chief's house. One side of his naked
body was practically roasted before the
missionary then at Massett and the
Hudsons Bay Company's factor heard
of what was happening. They immediately rushed down to the chief's
house, and by threatening them with
severe penalties, H. M. gunboats and
the law, succeeded finally in rescuing
the man more dead than alive. The
poor fellow lived for several years afterwards, but always appeared to me to
be half dazed and stupid. On my arrival
the Haidas had over forty slaves, men,
women and children. These attended
to all the domestic duties, and provided
fish, wood and water for their masters,
and did whatsoever else they were
told to do.
