A Weekly Newspaper Published in the interests of the Settlers, and to promote the development of the Queen Charlotte Islands.

CHEAP MONEY FOR SETTLERS
" Whereas the settlers of this province have, in almost all districts, to
pay an exhorbitant price for their lands
and the cost of improving same is also
very high;'and whereas considerable
time must elapse before sufficient returns can be derived from recently
cleared lands to enable them to clear
and live and improve their property. . .
Beit therefore resolved that the government of B.C. be urged to adopt a system of loaning money to bona fide
settlers at a low rate of interest, thereby enabling them to develop their land
to a state of remunerative production
in a much shorter space of time."
Such is the urgent demands after ten
thousand farmers of British Columbia,
represented in Victoria at the Central
Farmers' Institute Convention of Jan.
1913 and 1912. The urgent insistent
wish and will of the ten thousand, the
pulse and impulse of B. C, the reiterated demand and need of the province's
physical, structural machine.
Whoever rides on the cushions of Progress, the farmers are the boys who
push at the wheel and who build the
roads. Tillers of the soil, they are the
primal producers of wealth, the rock
bottom bed stratas on which civilizations
advance or fall. Without them our
economic system vanishes more or less
in the ephemeral.
What answer has this power received
from B. C. in this instance. What have
we done to smoothe the way of our
farmers:   Nothing.
We are still studying, weighing in the
balances of our judgment, the integrity
of their demands. The question is still
pending before the Royal Commission
of Agriculture appointed by the McBride
administration in 1912.
And it is small this our farmers demand. It is but the righting of one of
their lightest wrongs. For every economic student knows that for every
dollar paid by the consumer and earned
by the farmer, the latter only receives
about 35 cents.
It would be unfair to criticize too
keenly or to deny to our fine administration the credit that is its due for its
splendid work on behalf of the B. C.
farmer. But we cannot cease to insist—
and we shall not until we win—on the
ultimate solution of what our friend
Mr. Scott, deputy minister of agriculture, deemed a "vital question."
Neither may we ignore a aspect of the
question apparently not considered by
the convention: What are the enemies
of this measure we propose. That is :
the privileged interests and monopolies
it will affect and strike.
For the direct consequence of this bill,
if you give it an instant's study, will be
the fall of interest rates all over B. C.
and ultimately over the Dominion. It
follows that whenever the government
steps in the money market with a five
per cent, rate of interest on loans, the
loaning companies will have to follow.
The direct loss of the banker is in this
case the direct benefit of the farmer.
At least such is the superficial view the
money trusts will take. And we may
take it for granted they will bring to
bear on the administration all the
pressure at their command.
This is not by way of inuendo. We
have neither the intention or the slightest reason to doubt the competence or
loyalty of our executives. But these
are facts no administration may ignore,
and only with a staunch public opinion's
backing withstand.
Some time ago we outlined in these
columns this policy of government loans
for farmers, or as the institutes styled
it: cheap money for settlers.
Let us briefly study what statistics we
have. We pointed out previously that
the government's 20 or 30 years' loans
at five per cent, covered by bonds at
4 1-2 might be carried through successfully, admitting of course the security
is good and foreclosures few. But the
valuation of the land given as security
is, I confess, a knottier point.
Even under present circumstances the
valuation of land in B. C. is rather
hypothetical and it may well be that the
issuing of cheap loans will by itself
create a land boom and make valuation
still more difficult. And it would be
very dangerous to have loans on boom
prices.
However let us see how other countries
have fared. Among ourselves the C.
P. R. loans money at cheap rates and
20 years' terms on the security of the

Mr. Clements M.P.,       Anglican Church
And Local Affairs About Completed.
H. S. Clements, M. P. for Comox-
Atlin, who arrived in Prince Rupert last
week to spend a couple of days, looking
over public works, before going east to
the session, which opens tomorrow.
Among the public matters engaging
the Member's attention is the question
of the foreshore rights along the Prince
Harbor, in which he wants to protect
the city and' also make ample reserve
for federal docks and buildings.
Another question he discussed was the
effort he is making for an alteration in
the customs laws which will allow
American fishing boats to come and
purchase bait. Also that bonded cold
storage warehouses be permitted so that
United States fishing boats can ship
from Prince Rupert to the eastern markets and store the culls of their catch
by paying the duty.
"The Queen Charlotte Island mail
subsidy which I got last year has never
been taken up," said Mr. Clements.
*' We cannot get the G.T.P. or C.P.R.
to put on boats for the service required.
I have arranged for the Dominion protective boat Gannett to carry Island
mails whenever she makes a regular
trip from Prince Rupert.
The Anglican Church building, which
will be completed in the course of a few
days, will rank as one of the best and
most comfortable on the Queen Charlotte Islands. The main building is
22 ft. x 36 ft., with a kitchen addition
at back 10 x 12. Besides the hall, 18 x
22, there is a living room, 11 x 17,
study, 6ft. 6in. x 10ft, and bedroom,
10ft. x 10 ft. 6in., all finished with
beaver board. The upper floor will not
be finished until such time as it is re-
required. The building is of an attractive design, the plans for which as well
as the construction, being in the capable
hands of Mr. C. J. Clayton.
The Rev. H. H. K. Greene and his
good lady are very popular in the district, and with such a fine building the
work in connection  with  tbe  Mission
should prosper.
 o	
Telegraph Line Was Down.
Bishop Du Vernet
Will Visit District.
Early in March the Rt. Revd. F. H.
Du Vernet, Bishop of Caledonia, purposes visiting the Anglican Church
Missions on Graham Island. Since his
visit last year there has been considerable expansion in the work. By the
time of his visit the Church halls at
Graham Centre and Queenstown will be
completed, as well as the Mission boat,
which is being built by Hazelton &
Campbell of Woden. On Sunday,
March 8th, there will probably be an
ordination at Massett, when the Rev.
H. H. K. Greene will be advanced to
the Presbyterate (the second order in
the Anglican threefold ministry-Bishop,
Presbyter, Deacon.)
 o	
The Polaris will leave tomorrow at 7
a.m. sharp for Massett te connect with
the Prince John.
During Sunday morning's storm the
telegraph line was put out of commission. Several breaks occurred between Queenstown and the divide and
Operator Dunn has been busy for the
past,few days putting the line in order.
Communication with other points was
established yesterday.
 o	
-A large gang are busy at work falling
and clearing on the townsite.
Dr. Graves gave a dance Friday night
at Massett which was well attended.
W. Toop of Mayer Lake is a visitor
in town. " Bill" has a big reputation
as a cook and his services have been engaged for Mr. and Mrs. Hastie's dance
tonight.
There has recently been issued by the
Department of Lands at Victoria a pre-
emptor's map of the north-eastern
portion of Graham Island, showing the
surveyed lands open for pre-emption.
The Queenstown District Conservative Association smoker will take place
on Saturday evening in Hastie's hall.
A general meetingwillhe held previous
to the concert, when new members may
be enrolled.
Mr. and Mrs. Hastie's dance tonight,
to which everyone has been invited,
promises to the best social event ever
held on the Islands. A big gathering
from all points is expected and several
boats have been chartered to convey
the guests to Queenstown. QUEEN CHARLOTTE ISLANDER

United We Stand.
In all growing communities, and in
sparsely settled districts, there are
many wants that are keenly felt, by
the pioneer settlers. Trails, roads and
bridges; mail communication, telegraphic service, and other necessities,
of a public nature, are sought for, both
in public and private ways, and there
^s a spirit of restlessness attendant on
the carrying out of improvements,
which grow with the influx of settlers.
There are many ways to obtain recognition of our wants, and it behooves all
to unite when an appeal is made for
assistance, putting aside all petty
grievances, and working for the general
good. In small communities, where
men and womenshould "pull together,"
it is often remarked that personal
feeling, betimes, will cause disruption
and bring with it opposite results from
those intended. We have several small
towns, in the course of the making; in a
short time we expect that all of them
will be busy centres. All are now
growing, and there should arise np
spirit of rivalry that might be attributed to jealousy. There is room for all,
and to spare. Every settler -on the
islands means a great deal to those who
are in business, or endeavoring to make
a home here. We want no North or
South; East or West. The Quee^ Charlotte group of islands will attract attention, it matters not what we may do;
but many a country has been retarded
by those who cannot sink self in working
for the general good, competition is commendable, provided it is carried on in
a judicious way. There is no room for
grouchers, in larger places, and we
should have none here. It is a struggle
that the pioneers are'having, and all
should be united,'when the time1 comes
for them to appeal for any public improvement. There is much we require
to aid in building up the islands, and
nothing will be gained without combined
effort on the part of individuals, for
individuals make communities, rand

to give us any reliable statistics.
But from 1894 South Australia,
Western Australia, Victoria, Tasmania,
New South Wales and Queensland have
made loans to farmers aggregating some
35,000,000 dollars at an average rate of
4 1-2 per cent, and all report profit*.
New Zealand alone loaned $60,000,000
in the same way (1894-1912) and reports
33 foreclosures out of 32,000 loans;
handles the business at 15-100 of seven
per cent, of the capital and reports a
profit for 1911*12 of $800,000. The rate
of interest is five per cent,, 4 1-2 for
prompt payment.
Of course there have been failures but
inasmuch as we may ascertain, they
were due td graft and tax administration. New York, New Jersey, Wiseqn-
Bin are examples. New Jersey's crash
was due to loans on inflated fallen
values.
The presence of such statistics which
are a matter of unquestionable record,
we cannot understand the extreme conservatism of our administration.
