E. M. Sandilands, government agent
and road superintendent, returned last
Saturday from an inspection trip of
three weeks' duration in connection
with the laying out of the work to be
undertaken this summer on roads, trails
and bridges on Graham Island. Mr.
Sandilands travelled 360 miles or more,
and although the trip was anything but
a picnic, the road superintendent was
looking as fresh as a daisy when he returned.
From Queen Charlotte, the route taken
was along the east coast, via Lawn Hill,
Tl-el, Oeanda, Cape Fife, Tow Hill and
Massett. From Massett, Mr. Sandilands
visited points on the inlet, including
Nadu, Woden River, Sewal and Queens-
town. Meyer Lake and Yakoun Lake
were also visited.
The north end of the island, including
Massett Inlet district, the sum of $40,-
000 will be spent this year. The most
important undertakings will be the Delkatla bridge and a six mile wagon road
from Queenstown to Meyer Lake. Work-
on the wagon road from Massett, via
Tow Hill, to the east coast will be continued, and new trails will be built at
the Yakoun River, Kundis, Nadu and
Woden River. Mr. Charles Spence will
have charge of the work.
At the south end of Graham Island,
the continuation of the work started
last year will be the main undertaking.
The wagon road from Skidegate to Tl-
ei River will be put in good shape, and
the branch roads at Hydah and Lawn
Hill will be continued to the interior of
the island.
Some preliminary work is being done
on the trails meantime, such as burning
brush, etc., but the regular road camps
will not start up until the beginning of
May. Mr. A. J. Gordon will have
charge of the work at this end.
On Moresby Island the work will be
continued at Sandspit and othertpoints.

In the last issue of the Massett Leader,
in   bringing   before   the   electors   the
possibility of an election in the Skeena
District, the most uncalled-for language
was used in connection with the sitting
member, Mr. William Manson.     It  is
very possible that Mr. Manson has not
enjoyed the pleasure of suiting the desires of some of the voters of the district.    His  election  proved  his  popularity, and the  fact that  the  Leader
was loud in its praise  of Mr. Manson,
during his recent visit to  the Islands,
ought  to  prove  that   he  was  always
earnest in  his  desire  to bring before
the Government all measures  for  the
betterment of his constituency.     It  is
not the province of the Islander to defend Mr. Manson—he  is able to stand
up  in   his  own  defence;   but  an  unwarranted attack, not substantiated by
the electors, should not emenate  from
the fertile brain of one—or, perhaps, a
lew—of   the   persons  who   may  have
reasons to find fault with our representative.     Mr. Manson was chosen for the
local Legislature with a majority that
proved  his  popularity.     Massett  and
other sections of the Islands helped  to
return him, after many years of service
as the representative of Skeena District,
and if the occasion arises, would do the
same again.     There has been no cause
to regret the action taken a year ago,
and it  comes   with   bad grace from a
non-voting  publisher,  to  take the representative of the people of the Islands
to task for some  supposed  grievance,
and at the same time to ask the voters
to support another  of  the party that
unanimously assented   to  his candidature.   As regards the gentleman's name
and   his   ambition   to   represent   the
Islands, it is only a pipe-dream.

Doughty, managing director of the B.

the Islands who are never satisfied and
think that the Govornment is not doing
enough. We can't call them settlers,
because they do little work—very little
work—on their pre-emptions. At the
same time they are after a job as soon
as the road work commences. Instead
of grouching they should try and show
people that they are 'in earnest about
developing their pre-emptions. A visit
of the pre-emption inspector to the
Islands would wake them up a bit.
There are, however, a large number
of settlers who are making a good showing on their places, but they are not
grouchers.

SUGGESTIONS
As to the Growing of Good Vegetables
By Austin Richardson, Lawn Hill.
Carrots and Turnips.
The soil sho Id be very loose and fine
and dug deep. The aim in growing all
vegetables is to grow them as to shape
with the view of the least possible waste
in peeling or cleaning. Therefore
nothing should be done to cause
them to grow out of shape; if you do
not dig deep and have the ground
loose and fine they meet obstructions
that cause them to grow out of shape.
If you manure, put it deep down, for
the reason that if you put it on the surface it causes the roots to fang and
fork and grow out of shape. The same
may be said in this respect of all roots
of this kind, such as beets, turnips,
and parsnips. If you put the manure
deep and have the ground fine the root
goes down for the manure and is more
likely to keep the proper shape than if
it has to seek its food from the surface,
it, so to speak, has to go sideways to it,
hence the tendency to fork and fang.
It is advisable always to put stable
manure or such manures in a half rotten
state some time before the crop is put
in, in preference to putting fresh and
rank manure on at the time of planting.
If you put the fresh and rank manure
into the ground at the time of planting
it causes inferior shaped roots of all
kinds, in faet injures the quality. In
growing for exhibition it is a good plan
to dig trenches and put the manure in,
having had the trenches open during
winter you get the soil fine and
well pulverised. If you sow eld or
inferior seed or sow any seed too
early, it often results in the plant going
to seed. In sowing swedes or turnips
to keep during winter, they should not
be sown in this climate before May. It
would be a good plan to sow several
sowings and keep the dates, thus you
will find out the best time to sow. In
some cases on this island on the different kinds of soil there would be a considerable difference in the time to sow.
On the sandy, warm soil, you should not
sow before June.    The turnip is a root
requiring to be grown quickly; its
natural aim is to go to seed, therefore
if you give it too much time to make
its growth, it shapes to go to seed and
does not grow such good quality Of
course, with table turnips it is different,
you sow and gather them as they get
big enough to use. When you want
them as early as possible they should be
sown in small plots and often.
Onions.
In growing onions the seed bed should
be made some time beforehand, and the
soil should be free of lumps. Sow the
seed half an inch deep ; if you sow the
seed deep, say two inches,  you cause
thick-necked onions.  Some people grow
them that way in place of leeks.   Care
should be taken to keep the soil, when
hoeing during the growing season, from
covering the bulbs; should you cover
them it causes thick neeks.    Charcoal
and wood ashes are very good fertilisers.
There are two fertilisers of especial
value and those are soot and salt, which
are sown together when the ground is
finally prepared for the seed, and in
quantity only sufficient to colour the
ground.    They are used both to help
the growth and prevent maggot and
canker.   I have always used these and
have never had any maggot injure the
crop.
Peas.
Peas require lime or calcerous matter.
I should think ground clam shells would
be very good. Here again, if manured
at all, it should be deep; if you manure
close to the surface, the young plant
finding abundant nutriment near at
hand, does not root freely, consequently
when the tax comes at the time the pods
start to form, the plant not having made
much root cannot swell the pods sufficiently. On the otner hand, if the manure
is dug deep the roots are there just
when needed, and are able to fulfill the
task of filling the pods.
In regard to most garden vegetables
the thinning out is one of the most
essential things to attend to. They
should be thinned out as soon as possible;
This is especially the case with turnips.
If you let them crowd they become
weakly and spindly and try to adapt
themselves to the position they are in;
if you leave them like this, even a short
time, they start to adapt themselves
and the mischief is done. Thin out at
once, and don't stop their growth at all
—that is if your aim is to grow things
well.   This point is very important.
Seaweed is a good manure for beet;
it should be put down deep.    Salt in
moderation is good.   In the analysis for
beet, the ash contains about 20 per cent
of salt.   The reason why it is necessary
to have a rotation of crops is because if
you grow one crop year after year, say
cabbage, in that case you would draw
largely on sulphates, potash, lime, etc.;
but if after one year of cabbage you
sow a crop of carrots, beets, parsnips,
etc., plants having a tap root, you ease
the surface soil, and those tap roots,
even if the cabbage has drawn largely
on the potash, they are able to go down
to soil which the cabbage was unable to
reach. After these tap roots you would
sow other surface roots, such as beans,
peas, onions, lettuce, etc. Crops that
require different chemicals than the
cabbage, cauliflower, etc., could again
follow, or put in a patch of strawberries;
by these means you get the best out of
the land. Of course, by manuring
heavily it would not be so necessary to
have a rotation, as you keep up the
supply of chemicals the different plants
require.
