H. S. Clements, M.P.,
And The Islands.
H. S. Clements, M.P., who is expected to come north shortly will visit
many of the outlying parts of his constituency, which covers the largest area
of any in the Dominion, and which he
^so ably represents in the House of
Commons. Last September, Mr.
Clements visited the Islands, the result
of which gave him an insight as to what
our immediate requirements were, and
during the Session that closed recently
the following<appropriations were passed
in the estimates, sure proof that he does
carry out his promises. If time permits, Mr. Clements will pay another
visit to the Islands this summer.
Massett wharf, $5,000 (completed.)
Sandspit wharf, $5,000 (building.)
Queenstown   wharf,   $5,000   (to   be
built.)
Lockeport wharf, $4,000 (to be built.)
Wooden River, landing float, $850.
Telegraph line from Dead Tree Point
to Massett, $13,750.

Supt. Of Presbyterian Missions
Visiting North.
Rev. George Wilson, B.A., of Vancouver, Superintendent of the Presbyterian Missions in B. C, is likely to
visit Queen Charlotte and neighborhood
this week. Services will be held in the
Barge hall, Sunday school, 10.30 a.m.,
afternoon, at 3. Skidegate, evening
service at 7.30.
 o	
Trawler Arrives.
The fishing trawler Imbricaria, from
South Africa, for the B. C. Fisheries,
Ltd., arrived at Vancouver a few days
ago after completing a long trip. Capt.
Robinson, and a crew of fourteen men
brought the little vtssel across two
oceans at about seven knots an hour.
After receiving an overhaul the Imbii-
caria will fish out of Vancouver.
 o	
Prince Albert's Damage.
Captain C. H. Nicholson, manager of
G. T. P. steamers, states that the
Prince Albert would not be back on the
Vancouver-Queen Charlotte service until some time in July. She is now in
drydock at Esquimalt. Examination
showed that twenty plates would have
to be renewed and she is more badly
damaged than thought.
Local News Items
Miss Miller has resigned her position
as teacher of the Queen Charlotte school
and leaves today on a visit to England.
Local spring salmon, after being mild-
cured, are sent to Germany, where a
large market has recently been worked
up.
Contractor W. G. Gillett has about
completed the Sandspit wharf. He left
last Monday night for Prince Rupert on
business and returns to-morrow.
Mr. E. Girard left last Monday night
on a business visit to Seattle and other
coast cities. He was accompanied by
his daughter, Miss Bertha Girard.
The Queen Charlotte school closed on
Friday afternoon for the summer holidays. A number of parents and friends
attended and the scholars gave a pro-
ramme of readings and recitations.
NOTICE—The annual meeting of the
Skidegate Inlet Conservative Association will be held at Skidegate Oil-works
on Saturday, July 5th, at 8 p.m. All
members will please attend.—Thos. R.
Davey, Secy.
The British Pacific Coal Co., after
fleecing the public to the tune of
thousands of dollars in a wildcat coal
mine, won't pay their bills. We wonder
what has become of all the money that
was subscribed? Outifits like the foregoing should be prosecuted.
Spring salmon are running on the
west coaat, near the entrance to Skidegate Inlet. Several good catches have
been obtained during the past week by
local Indians. If the salmon should
prove to be as plentiful at this end of
the island as at the north end, it would
certainly give Queen Charlotte a much
desired lift.
 o	
A Challenge.
Overheard on board s. s. Prince John
last Monday night: "That they are
getting a crew into training for the
four-oared rowing championship of the
Queen Charlotte Islands and Prince
Rupert." The picked crew, we understand, that will represent the "John "
is composed of Chief Officer MeKenzie,
stroke; Capt. Wearmouth, 2nd oar;
First Officer McLean, 3rd oar; Second
Officer McGuirk, 4th oar; with Chief
Engineer Munro as Goxwain. Should
the challenge be taken up, and some
think it will, a few new hats, as wagers,
will have to be bought.

The proprietor and publisher
of The Islander has decided to

A supplement will be printed,
however, protecting all legal
notices, until The Islander is
established at Queenstown.
The Publisher takes this opportunity of thanking advertisers,
subscribers and contributors for
their patronage and support during tne past two years.

Of Interest To Farmers.
Greater interest than usually attaches to government papers invests a
review of the work of the experimental
farms throughout the Dominion, which
has just been sent out from Ottawa.
For more than a quarter of a century
these farms have been in operation,
their woi'k being the finding out of the
kind of crops and animals best suited
for farming in the various parts of the
Dominion, and the treatment that is
most likely to result in profit to the
farmer. Not only at the central farm
at Ottawa has this work been carried
on, but also throughout the various provinces, from the Atlantic, through the
prairie country to the Pacific. The
benefit to the Canadian farmer has
doubtless been considerable, but the department is by no means convinced that
all the good possible is being done. For
example, it is suggested that many
farmers do not receive the reports and
bulletins sent out by the department
from time to time, and that many others,
though they may receive these publications, naturally experience difficulty in
finding the time necessary, to study
them. It is to meet the needs of both
these classes of farmers that this review has been prepared. It contains
the outstanding conclusions that have
been reached during the past quarter
of a century, the period during which
the farms were under the directorship
of Dr. William Saunders, who recently
retired.
This review has been prepared by Mr.
J. B. Spencer, B.S.A., editor of the
publications branch of the department.
It tells of lessons that have been learned
concerning fertilizers, cereals, fodder,
crops, farm field work, live stock, horticulture, arboriculture, chemistry,
poultry, weeds and plant pests. In addition, many of the recent developments
of the farm system are enumerated. It
is shown that not only have the farms
and stations been increased in recent
years to fourteen, but great advancement is being made in all of the older
farms. The review, which is tastefully
produced, has been issued for fr*e distribution by the Department of Agriculture at Ottawa.

Islands about 1st September.

Rev. Mr. Bygraves, of Queen Charlotte, visited Queenstown, Massett and

warmly welcomed by large congregations.
Arthur Robertson has been appointed
fire warden for the northern end of
Graham Island.
The British Empire landed 60,000feet

genera
company, which at the same time raised
Quinn's wages to $175 a month.
After experimenting with steam trawl
fishing in local waters the company
found that it was not a success, as it
was in the North Sea, for the reason
that the trawl brought up more non-
edible fish than edible fish. Finally, it
was decided to abandod trawl-fishing,
and resort to the line fishing from dories,
such as has been in vogue in coast waters
by the local fishermen. There was a
clause in Quinn's contract which read
that he could be dismissed if he was
found to be incapable, and the company
at the end of six months, claiming that
he was inexperienced at dory fishing,
ordered bim to be reduced to the position
of mate until such time as he became in
the company's estimation sufficiently experienced to be made master again.
This decision led to Capt. Quinn's refusal to accept a position as mate, and
to the lawsuit.
After legal arguments over the contract His Honor Judge Mclnnes said he
found that Capt. Quinn was engaged
for two years on the understanding that
he was to engage in trawling work, and
the fact that he was inexperienced in
dory work was no ground for calling
him incapable under the contract. The
damages he computed on the basis of
$125 a month, as stated in the contract,
and not on the basis of the $175 a month
he received as master. His Honor allowed him full pay for seven weeks he
was idle, and $35 a month up till December, to make his present salary of $90
in another qmploy, equal to the $125 a
month he was engaged at. After the
end of December Capt. Quinn is to have
liberty to apply again for further relief
if he is unable in the meantime to obtain a salary at $125 a month.
