NEW YEAR.
Ring out the old,
Ring in the new.
It is a strange, but true, experience
we all have in celebrating the passage
of a year, and welcoming another milestone on the journey through life. The
years pass and go, but we look forward
over the mysterious road, where everything is shrouded in mystery, and make
vows to better our condition—to accomplish something that will bring to us
both fame and fortune. All we can
see in the misty future is the bright star
of hope, ever shining and bidding us to
battle through the thorns and difficulties
that encompass us on every side. In no
part of the civilized world can there be
found more of the spirit of optimism,
with regard to the coming year, than on
our evergreen isla|i|s. Standing out on
the broad Pacific Ocean," facing the
Occident and Orient, awaiting the coming of the thousands of immigrants that
will be borne to our shores by railways
and steamships, there is a hope for the
future that the coming year will see
realized. The completion of a transcontinental railway and the opening of
the Panama Canal, must mean a great
deal for every portion of our fair Province. The coining year will see both
of these great undertakings completed.
A few years ago our islands were populated only by aborigines. Things have
changed, and an eraof prosperity loomed
across the horizon, which brough a large
band of pioneer settlers to the Queen
Charlotte Islands. Towns and settlers'
homes took the place of forest wilds ;
men and women dared the many difficulties of pioneer life and brought their
families to carve out a home along the
shores of our inlets and in the interior.
Schools and churches are now to be
seen, where but a few years ago only
the two Indian churches, one at Skidegate and the other at Massett, were the
only places of worship. Good men and
true, the missionaries, followed in the
wake of advancing civilization and
brought tidings of joy to those who
struggled to take an existence from the
bosom of Mother Nature. Surveyors,
with their crews, v/ent north, south,
east and west, to locate the land owned
by residents and speculators. Prospectors, with their outfits, roamed over the
islands seeking precious metals.    The
fisheries were more prolific than during
any year in the history of the islands.
On all sides, the ring of the axe and the
clearing of land showed that there was
a permanency in the settlement of the
surrounding country. The past year
has been one of advancement. Why
then should there not be hope for the
future? We have all that goes to make
a land of homes and industries. There
is much more of development to be done
which will come with the influx of
settlers. The prospects for the New
Year looks encouraging. Let all cast
aside regrets at any difficulties that
have been encountered. Look forward,
with the bright star of "Hope" to
illumine the way. Rome was not built
in a day, and other portions of this
Province were harder places to live in
a few years ago than our isiand is today. We must remember that the
pioneers of every country are the men
and women who carve out the cities and
towns of future generations. They receive all of the hard knocks and few »f
the emoluments. The old and wise saying, "that any man who makes a blade
of grass grow, where never a blade grew
before, is a benefit to humanity," will
come more than true in the case of every
pioneer on our islands. If for no other
reason than that there was not one
death from natural causes on our island
during the past year, we have reason
to be thankful for our healthy climate.
The absence of summer heat and winter
cold, while our Eastern neighbors were
sweltering or freezing, should make us
thankful to be in a land that is worth
while to live in. We are surrounded
by natural resources'that but await the
investment of capital to produce the
millions of dollars worth of wealth
above, below and in view on every acre
of land on the islands. There is no
reason for despondency regarding future
events, and we trust that every resident
of the islands will find themselves in a
position to welcome the New Year as a
harbinger of peace and prosperity.

Christmas Day
At Queenstown.
Christmas Day at Queenstown was
spent by the inhabitants in a quiet, but
pleasing manner. The day was mild
and dry and a large number of settlers
came in from outlying points to spend
the day with their friends. Many of
the residents entertained at dinner and
the seasonable feeling of good will and
good cheer was much in evidence
amongst all.

of guests partook of an excellent dinner,

A Retrospect.
The year has been one of prosperity
throughout the civilized world, from a
business standpoint, although money
has been a scarce commodity and is
bringing high rates of interest. The
semi-civilized nations have had their
difficulties, with the war in Turkey and
rebellion in Mexico. When people have
no other ways of settling their difficulties than resource to arms, the larger
nations appear to let them settle their
grievances in the same way that generations of men always thought proper.
War has always its horrors, and the
year passed without any trouble among
the larger nations of the world, for
which we should be truly thankful.
There has been disaster by land and sea
which brought grief and loss to a large
number; the storms on the great lakes,
with fire, railway accidents and floods,
added their quota to the death list. In
political circles in Europe and America
many changes have taken place. In our
"tight little isle " across the sea, labor
troubles and political measures have
kept the political pot simmering until
there is a danger of it boiling over and
landing some of the " high and mighty"
in places that will not add to their comfort. The women are also up in arms
for suffrage—the only thing they lack
to bring us poor mortal men to our
senses. Nearer home, the Panama
Canal and the transcontinental railway,
from which we expert so much, will be
finished during the coming year. Remarkable progress has been made in
railway work throughout the Province.
Many thousands of settlers have taken
up their permanent homes on this side
of the line, and we have had a fair share
on our islands. The star of empire is
travelling Westward with great rapidity,
bringing with it the best of those who
have tired of illusions and allurements
of the great cities. Our own fair Province, which is the brightest gem in the
diadem of Canada, is advancing by leaps
and bounds. Steamships from all parts
of the world are coming and going,
bringing and takinggoods. The fisheries
turned out a larger supply than ever
before; and the mines, forest and farm
added millions of dollars to the wealth
of the nation. The price of living advanced, which is to be regretted, and
we have had our own labor troubles in
the coal industry. Our islands have
felt the tide of prosperity. Development and increase in population being
much more marked than in any previous
year. There is much to look forward
to in the coming year, and all should
work with awill to bring contentment and
prosperity to the land of our adoption.

GRAHAM CENTRE
Christmas Day, with all its festivity
and rejoicings, is a day long to be remembered in Graham Centre. The inhabitants turned out en masse and
spared themselves no effort to make
the Xmas dinner and entertainment a
success.    The settlers from all over the
central part of Graham Island came in
and fun and good cheer were the order
of the day. The dinner was given by
the ladies of the Centre, who have been
busy for weeks past preparing for the
event. They were well supported by
their men folk and by those interested
in the work. Indeed, the people of this
part should be congratulated on the
thorough and able manner in which their
hospitable and enjoyable entertainments
are conducted. The dining-room, kindly
lent by Capt. MacTavish, was tastefully
decorated with evergreens, flowers and
flags, and the table was a sight which
will ever remain a pleasing memory to
all those who were present. On Xmas
Eve busy workers were seen hurrying
to and fro, carrying edibles and other
articles necessary for such an enormous
undertaking as a Xmas dinner for forty
guests. On Christmas day the scene
was busier than ever. Some of the
guests arrived early and were kind
enough to lend a helping hand, fbr there
was still much to be accomplished.
Punctually at 5 p.m. all was in readiness and the whole company v\ as seated
at a dinner which left nothing to be desired, and on which the cooks and their
helpers are to be congratulated. After
dinner a splendid programme was provided for the entertainment of the
guests and was fully appreciated by
those lucky enough to be present. The
musical part of the programme eclipsed
all previous efforts of the performers,
everybody doing his and her utmost to
make the evening a success. It is hoped
that such an entertainment will become
an annual event at Graham Centre and
that each year the number of guests
and helpers will be increased. May the
esprit de (corps and good fellowship
which is felt here, extend its all prevailing influences to surrounding parts,
ever welcoming in the new settler and
thus making our Island home the abode
of happiness and prosperity—the true
Arcadia of those fortunate to live here.
Now the Christmas festivities are
over, the good folk of the Centre have
commenced preparations for their New
Year celebrations, which will take the
form of a dance on the 2nd January.
Everybody is, cordially invited. The
programme will include some country
dances which will enable inexperienced
dancers to take part in the evening's fun.
Throughout the week the residents
have enjoyed festivities in the shape of
dinners, card parties and musical
evenings.
Thos. O'Callaghan has completed the
finishing touches to his residence and is
now at home receiving guests.
Messrs. C. S. Wormold and C. M.
Adam made a flying trip to Delkatlah
Friday and were seasonably entertained
by Mr. and Mrs. C. M. Wilson.
