Sad Drowning Accident Good Progress on Roads Henriette Arrives With Machinery
    For British Pacific Coal Co. .
Wee   Edwin  Fairbairn Strayed Down
to Mill Float Where Parents Found
His Body in the Water.
A sad drowning accident occurred
last Sunday between five and six in the
afternoon, when Edwin Fairbairn, a
bright little chap about two years old,
and only child of Mr. and Mrs. W. H.
Fairbairn, lost his life.
The little fellow had gone out to see
some of the other children and was seen
near the house a very short time before
the accident. The parents did not miss
him until they were about to take their
evening meal, when they immediately
went in search of him. The child must
have strayed down to the mill float and
fell into the water without anyone
noticing him, as the parents found his
little body floating in one of the open
ings on the float. Assistance was at
once secured and everything done to try
and bring him round and hopes were
entertained that this would be so, but
after working on him for several hours
it proved unavailing.
The deepest sympathy is felt for Mr.
and Mrs. Fairbairn in their sad bereavement. The funeral took place on
Wednesday afternoon and was largely
attended, a service being conducted in
the house by Mr. John Murdoch.
PROBABLE VISIT OF H. 3. CLEMENTS, M.P.
There is every likelihood that Mr. H.
S. Clements, member for Comox-Atlin,
will visit this part of his constituency
during the season, and if he does he is
certain to meet with a good reception
from the inhabitants.
Mining Brisk On Moresby.
Mining on Moresby Island has not
been so brisk for a long time as it is
this summer. Last Monday Mr. A.
Heino passed through on the "John"
with a force of men for his property at
Copper Island? near Jedway. Some
time ago Mr. Heino started development
work and was so well pleased with the
outlook that he decided to put on some
more men and went south for that purpose, as well as ordering material and
supplies for the camp, which will be
brought north by the steamer British
Empire this week.
At Lockeport, E. M. Morgan has three
camps running, with about sixty men,
and according to reports excellent results are being obtained. At Cumshewa,
Chas. E. Pomeroy has a crew at work
on the property of the Queen Charlotte
Mining & Development Syndicate.
Several tons of ore, carrying high values
in copper and gold, is abcut to be shipped
to the smelter.
Ike Thompson and his , partner, AI
Wilds, during the pastfew months were
engaged developing several of their
claims. At Houston Inlet Ike has two
promising claims, the "Ivy" and "Iona"
and a tunnel has been driven on the
property about fifty feet.     /
Mr. J. D. Sword visited several properties at the south end of the island
and it is reported bonded the "Thunder"
and '' Spade Flush " at a good figure.
A party of experts from Vancouver
will visit Moresby Island about the
beginning of August to examine and
report on several properties.
Road Superintendent Visited Camps at
North End—E. G. Baxter, District
Engineer on Visit.
Mr. E. M. Sandilands, government
agent and road superintendent, returned
on Tuesday night after completing a
round of the road construction camps
at the north end of the Island. Mr.
Sandilands took the steamer to Massett
from which point he worked his way
around the camps, returning overland
via Mexican Tom's trail to Queen Charlotte. Work is being carried out at
Tow Hill, Nadu, Woden River, Mayer
Lake, Ain River, Queenstown and other
places at the north end, which were all
visited by the road superintendent, who
expressed himself as being well pleased
with the progress made on the various
road and trails.
The steamer Henriette arrived Saturday morning and proceeded to Slate
Chuch with about 80 tons of freight for
the British Pacific Coal company. A
donkey engine, machinery, rails, coal
mine cars, steel tipple, bunkers, cable,
etc., were included in the cargo. A start
was made lastjweek, under the superintendence of the engineer, Mr. Alex.
Faulds, with the work to be undertaken
and now that the material has arrived
the construction of the wharf and tram-
will be rushed to completion.
On Monday W. G. McMorris, a director of the company, arrived from the
south, accompanied by B. H. Talmadge,
capitalist, of Topeka, Kan., and A. Elmore, coal merchant, Seattle, who are
large stockholders, on a visit to the
mine, and we understand were highly
pleased with the property and the work
done. They left on Tuesday night on
the B. C. Fisheries tug Fulsom, which
was specially chartered, for Prince
Rupert.
Mr. E. G. Baxter, provincial engineer
for the Skeena District, arrived here
last Monday on a visit in connection
with the road construction on the East
coast.     During the week Mr. Baxter,
accompanied by A. J. Gordon, assistant Conservative Association Meeting.
road superintendent, went over the road
as far as the Tl-El River. The engineer
was also engaged surveying the route
of the road between the Oilworks and
the Indian Village. This piece is the
worst on the coast and is mostly all rock,
so that a considerable amount will be
spent before a wagon road is cut out.
A start will be made within the next
few days on this part of the road.
Sandspit Wharf.
We understand that tenders will be
called for by Mr. George B. Hull, superintendent of Dominion Public Works,
Prince Rupert, within the next few
days for the construction of a wharf at
Sandspit. The appropriation made by
the Dominion Government for this
wharf is $5,000. No time will be lost
and as soon as possible after the tenders
are in the engineer will give out the.
contract for the work.
The annual meeting of the Skidegate
Inlet Conservative Association was held
on Saturday night at Skidegate. Owing
to a large number of the members being
busy at this time of the year there was
a small attendance. President A. J.
Gordon presided. Reports were submitted by, the secretary, T. R. Davey,
and the treasurer, William Sandison,
for the past year which were approved,
favorable comment being expressed by
the president and others on the good
work accomplished. The secretary was
instructed to send a letter of congratulation to Premier McBride on the recent
honor cqnferred upon him by His Majesty creating him a K. C. M. G. It
was decided to postpone the election of
officers for the ensuing year until the
next meeting, which will be held on the
last Saturday of August.
Exciting Incident.
Frank D. Rice, B. C. L. S., arrived
last Monday from the south with a survey party and has started operations
at the Tl-El River, being engaged by
the provincial government. Mr. Rice
was accompanied north by Mrs. Rice and
daughter and Miss Hollingsworth, who
will spend the season at Queen Charlotte.
A school trustee meeting was held
last Saturday when some routine business was transacted. Next Saturday a
meeting is called for to elect a trustee
and an auditor in room of Mr. N. Fraser
and G. D. Beattie, whose term has
expired.
Mrs. Ike Thompson of Jedway, passed
through on the "John" last week after
a short visit to Vancouver.
The D. G. S. Lillooet came in Saturday evening and anchored in the harbor
until Tuesday morning. On Monday
the ship was gaily dressed with flags
and the ship's company had a holiday.
The Lillooet is engaged in survey work
in Hecate Straits and later on will proceed to Dixon Entance and Otard Bay.
Dominion Day Jwas quietly observed
at Queen Charlotte.
On Wednesday last Mr. B. J. Russell,
teacher of the Indian day school, was
involved in an accident at sea, which,
but for his courage might have cut off
in its prime a life blossoming with promise. Taking two skiffs and a gasoline
boat with two or three Chinamen, he
proceeded along the shore to obtain sand.
Having loaded up he started back for
Aliford Bay, but, oh my, it was rough
and the skiffs started taking water. Mr.
Russell in trying to mend matter, rolled
into the sea, whereupon the Chinamen
became highly excited and might have
involed things still more, but Mr. Russell with great " sang froid " swam out
after an oar, which had also fallen out,
and then overtook the gasoline boat!!
Fortunately no lives were lost, only one
skiff and two shovels.
The Fisheries boat Edrie left Saturday night for Prince Rupert with the
representative of the Co. installing the
fertilizer plant at Aiiford Bay on board.
A dance took place at Aliford Bay
last Monday night and was largely
attended. The music was supplied by
the Skidegate orchestra and Mrs. Fraser
had charge of the refreshment booth.

PULL TOGETHER.
It is the bane of every small community that the people find fault with
the government, officials, one-another
and things in general, if things do not
turn out just as they want them. Everybody appears to know everybody else's
business and this thing and that is considered wrong. In the large centres,
where men are busy all the live-long
day attending to their own business,
and work overtime to make both ends
meet, there is little bickering and the
next-door neighbor does not know what
is going on, and cares less. The petty
rivalries are forgotten where men keep
busy attending to their own affairs, and
do not usurp to themselves the right to
criticize every action of those in authority. Where men are doing their duty
in large cities, they are left alone or
assisted in every way. If they are
delerict it is soon found out, and they
are called to account. In this world
where competition is so keen and it is
hard to make both ends meet, there
should be no time for the petty jealousies
extant. Live and let live is a good
motto, and all should pull together for
the general good. If men would call
"a spade a spade," and go about their
business without bringing others into
disrepute, what a world this would be!
It is only by pulling together that communities prosper. Heaven would be our
home if we were all Saints. All human
beings have faults and frailities. "We
are of the earth earthy." It is an old
saying: "United we stand, divided we
fall.'' There are many things we require to make our islands what they
should be. Let all work together for
the general good. Bickerings and backbiting never obtained anything that
could be considered beneficial. Let the
petty grievances take care of themselves, and work with a will to advance
the community, which also means the
advancement of the individual.

For Presidential Honors.
Mr. Gillingham, who is interested in
the west coast oil fields, paid a visit to
Massett and left for Tiahn recently.
Mr. and Mrs. Nicholl, of Victoria,
spent a week at Massett and left on the
steamer Prince John on Sunday last
for home.
Messrs. Hipperton Bros., B. C. L. S.,
moved their camp from opposite Massett, and and are now engaged in surveying timber limits near the Deenan
river.
The run of spring salmon continues
off Langara Island, the fishermen bringing in large numbers of fish for the
cannery of the Wallace Fisheries.
Mr. Green, B. C. L. S., of Nanaimo,
arrived on the last steamer with a party
of men, and left for the east coast to
engage in surveying coal claims.
The new schedule of the steamer
Prince John commenced last Thursday.
On Wednesday night the steamer will
leave Prince Rupert, arriving and de
parting from Massett on Thursday
morning.
Massett's brass band ordered a new
set of instruments from Toronto, and
will engage a teacher at the conclusion
of the fishing season. It is the intention
of the band to commence practising
next winter.
Eli Tingley's new hotel at Queenstown
is now well under way and it is expected that the opening will take place
about the beginning of August.
A dance was held at Queenstown last
Saturday night. A large number attended and an enjoyable time was spent.

President Taft was renominated at
the Republican national convention held
at Chicago. Taft received 561 of the
1,078 votes in the convention, or 21 more
than a majority. The decision of the
Roosevelt people under direction of their
their leader to refrain from voting, left
no other candidate near the president.
The Democratic convention is taking
place at Baltimore and either Woodrow
Wilson of New Jersey, or Champ Clark
of Missouri, from late reports, stand
the best chance of securing the nomination. Others names likely to be put in
nomination are Judson Harmon of Ohio,
and Oscar Underwood of Alabama.
Tell us, Mr. Editor, whether Teddy
received the nomination? Did the
steamer leave Prince Rupert yet ? Is
the wireless station at Tow Hill in course
of construction, or will we have direct
telephonic communication with Dead
Tree Point ? Will the ashes from Alaska continue to cover us up, as in the
past, and still retard the islands from
depelopment, or are we "rising from
the ashes " and keepingpace with other
civilized sections of the country? In
fact, are we to remain a part of the
world without having the benefits of
communication with the world ? Don't
get excited at these querries. We are
eighty miles from Prince Rupert—over
a thousand people—and don't know anything of the outer world from one week's
end to the other. The Titanic was under the water for eight days before we
knew of the disaster. Every week we
have a holiday or two figuring out the
changed schedule of the steamer. No
one can tell you when the mail will arrive, and each person interested in
business must spend a day or two at
Massett, just waiting. Is this not
fierce ? Yet they say the Queen Charlotte Islands will be a great asset—some
day! We want roads, bridges and
wharves; but what use are they without having some means to reach the
outside world faster than on a weekly
steamer ? This should make a subject
for debate in your weekly social meeting.

History Of Queen Charlotte Islands.
Haidas and Their Legends.
By Mr. Charles Harrison.
Article XVIIL—Indian Reservations.
The number of Indian reservations
in this province is very great and
cover thousands of acres of extremely well located districts, and amongst
these reservations the Haidas have
undoubtedly all the land they can
possibly use,, About 30 years ago
Judge O'Rielly was commissioned by
the Dominion government to oome to
these islands and consult with the
chiefs of the different tribes in regard to the 'amiount of land that each
tribe really required, and in most
cases the acreage of land askefd for
was granted, and became eventually
the present Haida reservations. The
greatest liberality was exhibited by/
the officers of the Indian departf
ment and the government in setting
aside these reserves. A casual visitor around these islands today will
undoubtedly acknowledge that the
chiefs selected their locations where
the most valuable land could be
found and the soil is generally the
best these islands can produce. These
facts go to prove that the old chiefs
when consulted knew what they required for the members of theirj
tribes, and the selections made were
always the best that could possibly
be obtained. From the numerous
reservations set aside for the Haidas
on these islands, it is certainly evident that the former 'Chiefs were
highly satisfied with the acreage
they secured, and it was not for many
years after 'that the plea of ownership of all the_JIand became the
""watchwofcT'of' the natives^'l have
heard it reported several times that
in laying off these reservations as
the commissioner coasted along with
the chiefs in their canoes, whenever
they came to a place that had in any
sense been used by the Indians it
was put down in the commissioner's
notebook as a site to be reserved.
1 do not desire to deal unjustly with
'ithe Haidas in regard to their reservations, but I am thoroughly convinced from personal knowledge that
they have now under the existing reservation laws and bylaws more land
than they will ever use for many
years to come,. as the present generation are not farmers but fishermen and hunters; We have all been
told frequently that in discussing the
question of Indian reserves that the
Haidas were the original owners of
these islands, or an other words that
when the first white mien had discovered these islands they found the
Haidas in possession. I have lived on
these islands longer than any other
white man, and for many years __T_
neyer^heard the Haidas dispute the
right of the white man to obtain land
and locate thereon. They even desired that ithe whites should make
their homes on these islands and engage in trade and business pursuits
so that they might have all the work
they wished at home instead of having annually to pack up all their belongings and seek for work on the
mainland. This claim of ownership
of the land was not, I am convinced,
t
suggested by the Indians themselves,
and this idea of being the supreme
owners of the land never once, I
tthink, was ever held until recently
by the Indians on this entire coast-
These strange ideas were first suggested to the Indians by a few white
people who wished to stir up strife
[and discord, and who knew really
| nothing in regard to the natives but
\ what they read in books and newspapers. These people cry out for
| justice to the Indian, but what about
justice to the white man? What
i value would the islands be worth
j now if the white man had never entered this province? As in the olden
days the Indians would still have
been fishermen for their daily food,
and hunters in order to obtain the
skins of the fur-bearing animals for
clothing, and they would also have
been engaged from time to time in
tribal warfare. The Indians of today are a thousand times better off
and provided for than were their ancestors a century ago, and why is
this change? It is wolely due from
the advantages and tuition they derive from the whites-    Therefore, if
the Indians are to be encouraged by
■I
certaim parties in Toronto and elsewhere in their idea that they are
the owners of all these lands I
would like to ask these parties if
the whites have no rights to be protected? Justice to the Indian must
not stand in the way of justice to
the settlers, who really are the makers and backbone of this province.
These settlers are men who leave
family and friends behind them in
countries that are already civilized.
They leave all their social ties behind them to hew out new homes in
this province, yet we are told that
they really have no right to occupy
any of these lands without first oIk
taining permission of the Indians.
The Indians never had any legal
title to tihese lands, therefore they
can give none. The only title the
Indians seeim ito have is one of occupation. They did not make or
create these lands- These islands
were here thousands of years before
Jthe Haidas located thereon. If it be
true that the ancestors of these present Haidas came from Japan and lo*

cated on these islands of their own
free will as being the most suitable
for their requirements, the question
naturally arises who gave them permission to do so and by what means
do they assume proprietary rights
over this vast territory? Of course,
being the first individuals to locate
on these islands they are certainly
justified in retaining all the land they
desired for their own requirements,
and this was granted to the chiefs
when/fudge O'Rielly gave them all
the land they asked for for their own
