Favorable Report On Graham Island l^ew York Party
By Dr. Clapp, Government Geologist   Look 0velLCoal Fie,ds
In his latest report on the economic
geology of Graham Island, Dr. Clapp,
who examined the area for the Geological Survey, states the geology is
more complicated and the coal basins
smaller and more deformed than had
previously been supposed. Dr. Clapp
examined a strip running north and
south through the centre of the island,
about fifty miles long, and varying in
width from one to twenty miles. This
area includes Camp Robertson, Camp
Wilson, the Yakoun River and part of
Massett Inlet. The mineral resources
of the area examined consist of coal,
possibly oil, and clay. Coal is found at
a fairly definite horizon in the Haida
member of the Cretaceous group of
rocks, and also in measures of Tertiary
age. The Cretaceous coals range from
semi-anthracite to low carbon bituminous, according to local deformation
and igneous intrusions. The Tertiary
coal are mostly brown lignites, but some
are black. The Cretaceous coals are
found at Camps Anthracite, Rober-
son and Wilson and at Cowgitz. The
deposits at Cowgitz and Camps Robertson and Anthracite occur on the western limb of a large synclinal basin, but
the coal is high in ash, crushed and
greatly deformed and cut by Tertiary
intrusives. Camp Wilson is described
as a small, detached, synclinal basin
fringing the west flank of the largest
of the monadnecks, and the coal is of
good quality bituminous and not crushed
although the measures are considerably
deformed, but not cut by Tertiary intrusives. The reserve is estimated at
6,900,000 tons, but Dr. Clapp considers the possible reserve much
greater, as the coal exposed in the
west limb of the large syncline probably extends below the syncline and
may be found in the east limb, the
prospecting of which is strongly recommended. One or two of the smaller
basins are stated to be probably more
extensive than at prenent known, and
Dr. Clapp estimates he can conservatively place the probable quantity of
coal here at 293,000,000 tons.
Prospecting for coal on Graham
Island has heretofore been most disappointing, but the information and
estimates supplied by Dr. Clapp furnish a more optimistic view of the
future of coal development on Graham
Island than has been given out by any
geologist of repute for some time. The
work now being done at Camp Wilson
by the Metropolitan Trust Company,
under the direction of Prof. Milnor
Roberts of Seattle, is reported to be
giving encouraging results, and to be
confirmative of the favorable views
expressed by Dr. Clapp previous to the
work referred to having been put in
hand.
The Lignite Resources
of Graham Island also promise to be
of importance. Dr. Clapp describes
this grade of coal occurring in several
localities, the best exposure of which
are at Skenum Point, on the north
shore, where over ten seams running
up to 15 feet in thickness. Dr. Clapp
estimates the lignite reserve at Skenun
Point at 60,000,000 tons, and the probable reserve of Graham Island at
1,000,000,000 tons. He describes the
quality fair, since the ash is low, while
the lignite is strong and does not slack
on exposure as is the case with most
lignites.
A Field For Clay Products.
Graham Island abounds in clays and
shales suitable for brick and other clay
products made from low-grade clays, of
which there are thick and extensive
deposits.
The Camp Wilson Coal.
Development work at Camp Wilson
has exposed a seam 18 feet 3 inches
wide, and composed as follows : Bony
coal, 1.3 ft. ; coal, 1.1 ft. ; bony coal,
0.9 ft.; sandy fireclay, 1.6 ft. ; coal,
7.0 ft. ; bony coal, 1.8 ft. ; sandstone,
0.6 ft.; dirty broken coal, 4.6 ft.
Analysis of samples taken by Dr.
Clapp is as follows : Water, 3.44 per
cent. ; volatile combustible matter,
35.96 per cent. ; fixed carbon, 48.64 per
cent. ; ash, 12.96 per cent. This analysis approximates that of Suquash
coal, which, with the Quatsino deposits,
has been provisionally classed with the
Queen Charlotte group. The coal makes
a firm, coherent coke.
Change in Geological Mapping.
Those prospecting for coal on Graham
Island have been to some extent misled
by former maps showing the greater
portion of the north-eastern lowland as
underlaid by tertiary sediments; whereas Dr. Clapp contends the rocks should
be classified as tertiary volcanics—a
condition unfavorable for coal.
Cowgitz and Vicinity.
Dr. Clapp's investigation of the coal
deposits at Cowgitz and vicinity shows
the seams to be intruded by dacite, por-
phyrite, and although not greatly
crushed he found the coal to be altered
to a graphitic type, since classified by
a Russian geologist as shungite, which
signifies a coal so altered towards graphite that its fuel value is destroyed,
while it has not reached the stage in
which it would be of value as commercial graphite.
Other Minerals.
The report suggest that in the mountain region of Graham Island mineral
deposits may be found, possibly valuable for iron, copper and gold.
Prospects for Oil.
-o-
Watching Developments
In Graham Island Oil
While there is a good deal of interest
taken locally in the Queen Charlotte
Islands oilfields, says the Prince Rupert
Daily News, it is evident that there is
even greater interest taken elsewhere.
Parties from Victoria claim to have
genuine information from London that
the British Admiralty will buy up every
available section of land as soon as oil
is struck. What this would mean for
Prince Rupert is beyond the imagination
of almost anyone. Not only would it
mean that the oil district would be rapidly
developed, but it would also make Rupert
a naval base, which sooner or later it is
bound to be.
If oil is struck en Queen Charlotte
Islands it will not matter whether
Prince Rupert citizens are in on the
strike as far as reaping the benefit is
concerned. The strike would mean a
great boost for the whole north and
Prince Rupert would get the cream.
The shales on the west coast of
Graham Island are stated to be of considerable thickness, but probably occur
in small areas. They are of cretaceous
age and overlaid by tertiary basaltic
lavas. Similar shales also occur west
of the main basin of cretaceoas sediments on the Yakoun. The shales have
a strong odor of petroleum. Small
seepages of petroleum and tarry matter
are common along the west coast, the
tar in places filling crevises in the overlying basalts. A large mass of ozokerite, nearly pure, occuring as natural
paraffin, is found.

Mrs. Grange and son of Woden were
in town today.
After Visiting Camp  Wilson  will go
Overland to Skidegate.
A party consisting of Mr. Herbert
Parsons of New York, General Counsel
for the Metropolitan Trust Co., his wife,
son and daughter; Mr. Morgan, his
nephew and Judge Goodale of Seattle,
arrived on Tuesday and left that afternoon for the Yakoun Rivet. Mr. Wernicke, M.E., who has been assisting in
the engineering operations at the Drill
Camp, came down to Massett to meet
them and convoy them to Camp Wilson.
They are going right through to Skidegate, inspecting what has been done en
route. From there they will leave
again for Prince Rupert on Monday,
the Prince John making a special trip
for this purpose. Whilst the whole
party were looking very cheerful and
optimistic, they had nothing to say for
publication except that they were having a delightful trip and enjoying
everything.
O. W. Peters left on Tuesday for the
south on a business trip.
Capt. Henry  Edenshaw left   on  the
Prince John for Rupert.
Capt. Blake and C. C. Carter returned
from Langara Island on Tuesday.

was in town for a couple of day this
week.
Reginald Partridge returned from the
fishing grounds at Langara Island on
Tuesday.

H. Carpenter of Tow Hill was in town
Tuesday for lumber. His team of oxen
were greatly admired.
Mr. Chas. Clayton returned on Tuesday from Prince Rupert and proceeded
to Port Clements on the Polaris.
New potatoes are now being enjoyed
in the Oeanda District, also strawberries
enough to run a Methodist Church social.
Jack Munro of Prince Rupert, who
spent a few weeks in the vicinity of
Naden Harbor, left on the John last
Tuesday.
Mr. J. K. Anderson gave a dance last
Monday night in the Smythe Building,
which was well attended and greatly
enjoyed. Mr. A. Orr called off the
dances while the music was supplied by
Mr. Smith on the violin. Mrs. White
of the White Inn provided refreshment.
F. Stocks says that the report of his
absence from the island was grossly exaggerated, he having been living on his
ranch all the time. It is his neighbors
that are all away and Fred says that
he feels like a snail living in a circle of
empty snail-shells—and about as
active.
A noted hypnotist visited the islands
recently and was mistaken for the son
of the late P. T. He was credited with
being the possesser of six millions of
dollars, which he intended to invest in
oil lands. A "mix-up" of this description should be avoided in the future, for
the reason that disappointments bring
heart troubles. QUEEN CHARLOTTE ISLANDER

Massett, B.C., Saturday, July 18,1914
The Prince Rupert Daily News are
once again agitated over alleged discrimination against Liberals on the
Queen Charlotte Islands. We would
like them to find one instance where a
man has been discriminated against because of his political affiliations, or
where the question has been raised at
all by the local road foremen. We
might take them back a few years to
the days when the Laurier administration was in power, though they probably prefer to forget. An appropriation
was made for clearing the Yakoun
River. At this time the Island vote
was solidly Conservative. The order
went out that no white man was to
receive employment on this work if
Indians were avilable, nor were any
supplies to be bought from the local
merchants. When anything was short,
no matter how trivial, and could not be
procured from the Indian stores, a
launch would be chartered to go to
Prince Rupert rather than let a local
man receive any business. With instances of this kind fresh in the minds
of the people here, we think that the
less the Daily News says about discrimination the better.

The Miners' Ten
COAL AND PETROLEUM NOTICES COAL AND PETROLEUM NOTICES
Commandments.
Continued from last week.
The following commandments are
taken from a book published many years
ago on the early history of British
Columbia, and in view of the present
excitement on Graham Island are worth
repeating, although they are altered a
little to suit prevailing conditions:
V A man spake these words, and said:
I am a prospector, who wandered from
'away down east,' and came to sojourn
in a strange land, and ' see the bear.'
And behold I saw him, and bear witness, that from the tip of his nose to
the end of his tail, his whole body has
passed before me; and I followed him
until his huge paws stood still before a
clapboard shanty : then with his head
extended, he pointed to a candle-cardv
tacked upon a shingle, as though he
would say ' read,' and I read the
Miners' Ten Commandments.
IV. Thou shalt not remember what thy
friends do at home on the Sabbath day,
lest the remembrance may not compare
favourable with what thou doesthere.—
Six days thou mayest dig or pick all
that thy body can stand under; but the
other day is Sunday; yet thou washest
all thy dirty shirts, darnest all thy
stockings, tappest thy boots, mendest
thy clothing, choppest thy whole week's
firewood, makest up and bakest thy
break, and boilest thy pork and beans,
that thou wait not when thou returnest
from thy long-torn weary. For in six
days' labour only thou canst not work
enough to wear out thy body in two years;
but if thouworkest hard on Sunday also,
thou canst doit insix months; and thou,
and thy son, and thydaughter, thy male
friend and thy female friend, thy morals
and thy conscience, be none the better
for it, but reproach thee shouldst thou
ever return with thy worn-out body to
thy mother's fireside; and thou shalt
not strive to justify thyself, because
the trade and the blacksmith, the carpenter and the merchant, the tailors,
Jews and buccaneers, defy God and
civilization, by keeping not the Sabbath
day, nor wish for a day of rest, such as
memory, youth, and home made hallowd.
V. Thou shalt not think mci e of all thy
gold, and how thou canst make it f asust,
than how thou wilt enjoy it, after thou
hast ridden rough-shod over thy good
old parents' precepts and examples,
that thou' mayest have nothing to
reproach and sting thee, when thou art
left alone in the land where thy father's
blessing and thy mother's love hath
sent thee.
VI. Thou shalt not kill thy body b.y
working in the rain, even though thou
shalt make enough to buy physic and
attendance with. Neither shalt thou
kill thy neighbour's body in a duel; for
by 'keeping cool,' thou canst save his
life and thy conscience. Neither shalt
thou destroy thyself by getting 'tight,'
nor 'slewed,' nor 'high,' nor 'corned,'
nor 'half-seas over,' nor 'threesheets in
the wind,' by drinking smoothly down—
'brandy slings,' 'gin cocktails,' whisky
punches,' 'rum toddies,' nor 'egg nogs.'
Neither shalt thou suck 'mint juleps,'
nor 'sherry cobblers.' through a straw;

Miners' Ten Commandments.
Continued from next page.
nor gurgle from a bottle the 'raw
material,'nor 'take it neat' from a
decanter; for while thou art swallowing
down thy purse, and thy coat from off
thy back, thou art burning the coat
from off thy stomach; and, if thou
couldst see the houses and lands, and
gold-dust, and home comforts alieady
lying there - 'a huge pile' — thoushouldst
feel a choking in thy throat; and when
to that thou addest thy crooked walkings
and hiccuping talkings, of lodgings in
in the gutter, of broilings in ihe sun,
of prospect-holes half full of water,
and of shafts and ditches, fr.m which
thou hast emerged like a drowned rat,
thou wilt feel disgusted with thyself
and enquire, 'Is thy servant a dog that
he doeth these things?' verily I will
say, farewell, old bottle, I will kiss thy
gurgling lipsnomore. And thou, slings,
cocktails, punches, smashes, cobblers,
nogs, toddies, sangarees, and juleps,
for ever farewell ; thy remembrance
shames me; henceforth 'I cue thy acquaintance, ' and headaches, tremblings,
heart-burnings', blue devils, and all the
unholy catalogue of evils that follow in
thy train. My wife's smiles -and my
children's merry-hearted laugh shall
charm and reward me for having the
manly firmness and courage to say no.
I wish thee an eternal farewell.
VII. Thou shalt. not grow discouraged,
nor think of going home before thou
iiast made thy 'pile,' because thou hast
not 'struck a lead,' nor found a 'rich
crevice,' nor sunk a hole upon a 'pocket,'
lest in going home thou shalt leave four
dollars a day, and go to work, ashamed,
at fifty cents, and serve thee right; for
thou knowest by staying here, thou
mightest strike a lead and fifty dollars
a day, and keep thy manly self-respect,
and then go home with enough to make
thyself and others happy.
VIII. Thou shalt not steal a pick, or a
shovel, or a pan from thy fellow-miner;
nor takeaway his tools without his leave,
nor borrow those he cannot spare, nor
return,them broken, nor trouble him to
fetch them back again, nor talk with
him while his water-rent is' running on,
nor remove his stake to enlarge thy
claim, or undermine his bank in following a lead, nor pan out gold from his
'riffle box,' nor wash the 'tailings' from
his sluice's mouth. Neither shalt thou
pick out specimens from the company's
pan to put them in thy mouth, or in
thy purse; nor cheat thy partner of his
share; nor steal from thy cabin-mate
his gold-dust, to add to thine; for he
will be sure to discover what thou hast
done, and will straightway call his
fellow-miners together, and if the law
hinder them not, they will hang thee,
or give thee fifty lashes, or shave thy
head and brand thee like a horse-thief,
with 'R' upon thy cheek, to be known
and read of all men, Californians in
particular.
IX. Thon shalt not tell any false tales
about 'good diggings in the mountains'
to thy neighbour, that thou mayest
benefit a friend who hath mules, and
tools, and blankets, he connot sell,—
lest in deceiving thy neighbour, when
he returneth through the. snow with
nought save his rifle, he present thee
with the contents  thereof, and,   like a

dog, thou shalt fall down and die.
X. Thou shalt not commit unsuitable
matrimony, nor covet single blessedness;
nor forget absent maidens; nor neglect
thy 'first love;' but thou shalt consider
how faithfully and patiently she awaiteth
thy return; yea, and covereth each
epistle that thou sendest with kisses of
kindly welcome—until she hath thyself.
Neither shalt thou covet thy neighbour's
wife, nor (ride with the affections of
his daughter; yet, if thy heart be free,
and thou dost love and covet each other,
thou shait 'pop the question' like a man,
lest another, more manly than thou art,
should step in before thee, and thou
love her in vain, and, in the anguish of
thy heart's disappointment, thou shalt
quote the language of the great, and
say, 'Sich is life;' and thy future lot be
that of a poor, lonely, despised, and
comfortless bachelor.
A new commandment I give unto
thee—It* thon hastawifeandlittie ones,
that thou lovest dearer than thy life,—
that thou keep them continually before
thee, to cheer and urge thee onward,
until thou canst say, 'I have enough-
God bless them!—I will return.' Then,
as thou journeyest towards thy much-
loved home, with open arms shall they
come forth to welcome thee, and,
falling upon thy neck, weep tears of
unutterable joy that thou art come;
then in the fulness of thy heart's
gratitude, thou shalt kneel together
before thy Heavenly Father, to thank
Him for thy safe return. AMEN—So
mote it be.

the Seattle, where he will spend a few
months.

the land.
Mrs. Gordon Campbell went to Prince
Rupert last boat.-
Messrs. Brour, Pearce and Smith
came up to look over their locations at

They like the looks of the Woden and
district.

Woden for a week owing to the per-
cussityof the ''motah," which wouldn't
go except after a lot of hard work and
—axle grease.

What's the matter with you
Pessimists ?
If you knew as much as I do about the future of Delkatlah Bay
you would be chasing me up with payments on your lots.
The farming may be a little slow in developing, and the coal seams
hard to trace in paying quantities, but Delkatlah is on the eve of development as a Winter Tourist Resort which will place it only second to Prince
Rupert in Northern British Columbia.
I am not a prophet, for such prophecy only requires the application of
ordinary common sense.
Buying lots in Delkatlah is like sowing seed—the money disappears like
the seed in the ground only to spring up and yield ten fold.
Canada needs no summer resort, it has all the summer climate it wants,
but from Nova Scotia to the Rockies it needs a winter climate, and that's
what we have. The Spring is the time to sow seed. Sow your wages in a
lot at the rate of $5.00 a month and have a home in town.
Immediately back of Delkatlah pre-emptions are being taken up at the
rate of ten a week.    That will soon increase values.
