Article VII.—-The Settlers' Grievances and Difficulties.
There .are also grievances that the
settlers have against the Provincial
Government, but we must take everything into careful consideration lest we
attach too much blame to those who are
now in authority. In the year 1903
when the Hon. Richard McBride became
the Premier of this Province, the Government's credit was doubtful and the
cash balance was on the wrong side,
thus debarring the spending of public
money on roads and bridges, etc. Since
Mr. McBride came into office the Government cf British Columbia has carried
on and is still carrying on a marvellous
amount of public works as compared
with some of the older provinces, and
the credit of British Columbia is now as
good, even if not better than any other
province in the British Empire. I am
also assured that in all the difficulties
the settlers have to contend with they
have a friend in Mr. Manson, our worthy
representative in the local House. I
may assure the settlers that he is using
his best efforts at all times towards
straightening out the tangles that are
existing, especially on the east side of
the island, caused by the staking of so
many coal claims to the detriment and
the barring out of the settlers. Mr.
Manson last session obtained > larger
grant than any of the other members of
the House for roads and bridges, but as
his constituency is so large, and the development of several new districts like
ours demanding large expenditures of
public money for roads and bridges, I
have been assured in proportion to the
total amount granted that we have had
our share, but that amount was infinitely too small for our urgent and pressing
requirements. The lack of properly
made roads is at the present moment
seriously retarding the settlement and
development of this island. It is impossible to get farm machinery, horses
and cattle to many of the settlers locations through lack of the necessary
roads. To my knowledge some short
time ago a settler owned two horses
which he brought in with him, but he
could not get them through to his preemption claim and had to ship the
animals back to Prince Rupert. In disgust he left the island as he could not
afford to wait for the construction of a
proper road to the settlement where he
intended to locate. At the present time
there are also other settlers on this
island who are living on their pre-emption claims and have good horse and
wagons, but through lack of properly
made roads are unable to come to town
with their teams for supplies, and all
their goods have to be shipped in and
out by gasoline boats which causes them
a large and unnecessary expense that
they can ill afford to lose. The preemption reserve contains 300,000 acres
of rich level land, all of which is suitable for agricultural purposes. A liberal
expenditure is needed throughout all the
settlements and also in the mining districts before any definite and permanent improvements can be made, and
the first great necessity is the building
of suitable roads, bridges and trails.
The expenditure during the-past year
was not sufficient to carry out even a
fair proportion of the urgently needed
work on these islands. We sincerely
hope that the appropriations for roads
and bridges during the coming year will
be large enough to allow all the necessary roads and bridges to be built, and
that for every dollar spent a dollar's
worth of work will be accomplished. By
all pulling together unitedly, both the
Government and the settler, I have not
the least doubt but that what we now
require will eventually be gained. So
much is required for so scattered a community that time will be necessary to
formulate the most urgent ones into
business like shape for laying them before our representatives, and I hope
now that the two Governments will act
in harmony in the future and do their
level best to assist us who are trying to
make our homes on these islands in the
uttermost West.
It has been frequently reported that
the interior of Graham Island is covered
with dense timber. There are certainly
forests along the waterways, but the
late Dr. Dawson and other authorities
did not investigate, yet described the
island as a dense forest. There is however one drawback in regard to the interior of Graham Island. Most of the
agricultural areas in the interior will
have to be drained and an extensive
system of drainage is required for this
purpose. The natural growth is a thick
broad bladed grass, and that does not
have time in the short winter to entirely decompose. As a result, there is a
surface layer of half decomposed vegetation, averaging eighteen inches in
depth, that holds the water during the
rainy season, and this in turn is covered
with moss. This apparent drawback,
however, shows the fertility of the soil.
The necessity of drainage makes it a
proposition for the Government to un-
Big Mining Deal
On Moresby Island
Apex Group of Six Gold-Copper Claims
Bonded by E. M. Morgan for $125,000
for Eastern Capitalists.
Mr. E. M. Morgan, of Lockeport,
passed through on the "Beatrice" this
week from Prince Rupert where he completed one of the largest mining deals
made locally for some considerable time.
The property concerned is the Apex
Group of six valuable copper-gold claims
at Lockeport, owned by Messrs. D. R.
Bell, Joe Davis, Alex. Paterson and
Bill Harris.
Mr. Morgan, who represents a strong
party of Eastern capitalists, has bonded
the property for $125,000, and a good
substantial cash payment has already
been made.
The claims are situated about a mile
and a half from Lockeport and at an
altitude of 3,000 feet. There is an ore
showing on the property of 125 feet in
width and averages go better than $15
per ton.
The original owners have held the
claims for four years and for some time
past refused several tempting offers.
Mr. Morgan states that early in May
development work on a large scale will
be commenced on the property when
25 men will be employed.
 o	
Western Steel Affairs.
James A. Moore, with the backing of
a strong syndicate of English bankers
and steel manufacturers, it is stated is
prepared to submit plans for extricating
the Western Steel Corporation from its
difficulties, as announced by E. S. Mc-
Cord before a meeting of the creditors
of the bankrupt concern a few days ago.
To consider the proposal of Mr. Moore,
and that of the Metropolitan Trust Company, that of A. L. Richmond, representing a syndicate of Pittsburg and
Chicago capitalists, and a report from
G. M. Gibbs of an offer from English
interests for the Graham Island property, the creditors will take into consideration at their next meeting.
dertake and the interior cannot be successfully farmed otherwise. It would
therefore be an excellent thing if the
Government would undertake this work
and if this were done the settlers would
I feel sure not begrudge to pay a higher
price for their land, rather than be compelled to do the draining themselves. It
is strongly felt by the settlers that the
Government has in the past seriously
neglected this part of British Columbia.
At the present time they derive fully
half a million dollars from these islands,
and a reasonable proportion of this
should be reinvested in productive works
to develop this the largest area of farming land in British Columbia.

Are You A Voter.
It would be well to impress on every
man residing  on  the  Queen Charlotte
Islands that there  is   a possibility  of
an election in the near future, and all
should register  at once.    The islands
cut a very sorry figure in the  recent
election, despite the fact that we should
have at least four hundred voters on the
list.     The  qualifications are such that
any   British   subject  over   twenty-one
years of age, a resident of the Province
for  six  months,   and  domiciled  in an
electoral  district  for  one month,   can
sign the form required.   The name will
then be placed on  the  register.     Any
postmaster, Justice of the Peace,  and
many  other  government officials  may
take the oath or affirmation of the person registering, there is no charge for
doing so.    If a resident is on the voters
list in another part of the Province, it
will be necessary to have the name removed, which can be done by writing„to
the registrar.     The placing of a name
on the voters  list  will not  incur  any
responsibilities,  like  jury duty in  the
outlying districts where no  courts are
held, with the  exception of coroner's
juries, and  any person is liable  to be
called on a coroner's jury.
The placing of names on the register
should also receive that interest from
the settlers which is required to bring
all the eligibles into line. On the day
of the last election more people registered than the number that voted. The
islands polled less than one hundred
votes; we feel sure the census will show
over five hundred men on the islands.
We all know that a representative for
the islands is the greatest factor in
bringing before the government the
wants of the people. Our territory
covers more ground than many which
now have one or more legislators. All
that is lacking is that the people, who
are eligible, to record their names.
Don't put it off. "Procrastination is
the thief of time," and why procrastinate? We all have a privilege that
many'are fighting for to-day in other
lands. Each voter in this country is as
good with his vote as the richest landowner, and better than Mrs. Pankhurst!
We have many pre-emptors from the
other side of the line who have taken
the oath of allegiance, and they should
all register. There is no use in living
in a country without enjoying the privileges granted. It is the right and also
the duty of our people to enjoy the ballot,
which gives all an equality that means
so much if properly exercised. If
" you " are not a voter, register at once.

Capt. Davey and AI. Macnaughten
left for Cumshewa on Wednesday to do
assessment work on their mineral claims.
Mr. Manson Speaks Up.
In the Legislature, Mr. Wm Manson,
our representative, in his speech on the
debate on the address in reply to the
throne, impressed on the Government
the necessity of larger appropriations
for roads, trails, bridges, etc., in the
Skeena District. Lack of transportation, Mr. Manson said, was one of the
main things which hampered settlement
in the outlying districts, and we all
know this is true regarding Graham
Island. The Government, might too,
he said, well afford to furnish facilities
for clearing land, furnishing powder or,
perhaps, take a leading part in the
work. With the amount of money
available the Government could well
devote some of its surplus in that way.
Mr. Manson also drew the attention of
the minister of lands to the situation
arising out of coal claims staked over
pre-emptions, and urged that better
provision should be made for dealing
with such cases.
It is hoped the Government will pay
attention to the demands of Skeena
District as made by our representative,
and also that Mr. Manson will see that
the Queen Charlotte Islands get their
just share when the appropriations are
allocated.
The only appropriation made in the
Federal estimates for Queen Charlotte
Islands was for Lockeport wharf, and
that only the measley sum of $1,200.
We wonder what kind of a structure
they expect can be built for such a sum
when the Queen Charlotte City wharf
cost $5,000, and we all know what it is
like. Perhaps Massett and Sandspit
will be remembered later on.

The Galena Strike At Ikeda Bay.
Mr. C. M. Mclntyre, who arrived from
Ikeda Bay on Saturday, brought up
samples of the rich ore recently found
at that point by P. C. Daykin. Assays
run from $45 to $60 in gold and silver.
Mr. Mclntyre states that the ore body
can be traced for over 2,000 feet. A
little development work has been done
on the property and in the tunnel a two
ft. vein was struck at a depth of six ft.
The claims are located on the north side
of the bay and those interested in them
are Messrs. Daykin, Dundas and Mclntyre.
 o	
Messrs. C. D. Emmons and J. W.
Coovert returned from the interior of
the island on Monday and left on the
"Beatrice" for Vancouver.
Four hundred cases of clams were
shipped on the Beatrice from the cannery at Bank Harbor, near Jedway, for
Vancouver.
There is on exhibition in Orme's drug
store, Prince Rupert, a magnificent
specimen of elephant ear sponge which
was dragged up by its roots by some
halibut fishermen off the west coast of
Graham Island a few days ago. The
specimen is attracting much attention.
The Beatrice arrived Wednesday from
the south and after discharging freight
loaded_13,000 feet of lumber for Pacofi.
Owing to storm and fog she was held
up on her trip to and from Moresby
Island ports and it was Saturday morning before she pulled out for Rupert
and the south.
Vancouver Capitalists Secure Iron
Ore Property On Louise Island.
A deal has just been completed in
Vancouver whereby G. M. Gibbs, the
well known mining broker, acquires the
iron ore property of nine claims on
Louise Island, Cumshewa Inlet, for
Vancouver capitalists. It is reported
that a strong company will be formed
in Vancouver for the establishment of a
plant for the manufacture of steel and
iron in or near that city. Mr. James
D. Sword, M. E., who is well known
here, is among those interested in the
formation of new company.
It will be remembered that the property on Louise Island was some time
ago sold by Mr. Sword to the Western
Steel Corporation, which failed, after
making two payments, to complete the
purchase.
 o	
Wireless Operators Transferred.
Mr. W. Howard, who was in charge
of the wireless station at Dead Tree
Point, has been transferred to the
station at Cape Lazo, and Mr. C. M.
Mclntyre, of Ikeda Bay station, arrived
Saturday morning to take his place.
Mr. Mclntyre is succeeded at Ikeda Bay
by Mr. P. J. Cox, late of Honolulu.
 o	
Mr. Alex. Faulds, M. E., went south
on the "Beatrice" on Saturday morning. During his visit to the property
of the British Pacific Coal Company at
Slate Chuck, Mr. Faulds installed a short
tramway and equipment for ventilation
in the tunnel. A force of twelve men
are employed at the mine doing the
necessary development work.
The St. Andrew's Literary Society
celebrated Burns' anniversary by devoting the programme last Wednesday
night to selections from the poet's
works, and the songs, readings, stories
and instrumental music were thoroughly
enjoyed by those present. Next meeting night the programme will be in the
hands of Mr. D. Cochrane, and his
ability as an entertainer is well known,
so that a good evening is looked for.
Mr. Albert Jones treated the residents
at the Indian village to a feast and
dance on Wednesday night.

A Tow Hill Find.
The Tow Hill Archaeological Society
recently came into possession of a stone
slab of unusual formation. It was found
in one of the many caverns that makes
the vicinity of Tow Hill one of the most
interesting places on Graham Island.
At first glance it looks like a piece of
country rock of rather peculiar shape,
but on closer examination it is seen to
be covered with characters of similar
size and regularity, closely resembling
what is known to scientists as the
Funny-for-m order. The president of
the Society has started upon the translation of the ancient record. He says
it is couched in the idiom of the stone
age which is cyclodial with our own. as
may be instanced from the following:
'' The patriarch sent forth his call,
To all and sundry, great and small,
To meet him in the Hi-Ellen's hall
And listen to his message.
The natives heard the awful noise
And started forth with shouts and cries
To hearten up the weaker boys
Who faltered at the passage.
For be it known, both far and near,
That hiking oe'r this mundane sphere
Thro' mud and water all the year,
Is not fair treatment always.
At last they came in twos and threes,
Wet to the skin—mud to the knees—
And faces barked from hitting trees
That grew in the lost roadways.
They sit them down to calmly wait
The pleasure of the most sedate,
Who had a message from the State,
Bound and tied with colored tape.
It was the same old story.
A nearly King has got a plan
To get us all the dough he can,
But we must help him to a man,
To gain his crown in Torya.
Enough, the natives cried with might
And noisily prepared to fight
The reader and his band of toughs,
Who really thought they all were muffs.
Since we can't get this measley dough
Upon our merits here and now,
Why ! then!! let's hike o'er Cultus
Slough
And tell this King we'll see him through.
8 They hiked;
5 The King smiled and beamed,
Then shook his fist,
Why! your are not on the Big Chief's list.
Begone ye serfs and mend your fault,
At present you're not worth your salt,
And I'll see you some other day
And promise everything your way."
In reading between the lines of the
translation one familiar with present
conditions naturally concludes that
Hecate Straits at that early day was a
mere swamp, extending to what we now
know as the mainland, and that Tow
Hill was the rallying point for all that
vast territory. It is also interesting
and delightfully refreshing to learn that
political science is almost an exact
science, inasmuch as no change in
methods of proceedure is apparent since
our ante-deluvian ancestors made this
valuable record.
The members of the Society are having a delightful season and hope to make
other discoveries from time to time.
