Island and Mainland Exhibitions Proved Successful
i
Lawn Hill Fair
Better Than Ever
William Manson, M. L. A., Praised the
Island Farmers on Their Splendid
Work and Agricultural Exhibits.
The East Coast settlers held their
second exhibition of agricultural products at Lawn Hill last Saturday week
and the quality and variety of vegetables and field products on display
were of a very high order and much
better than last year.
The Committee in charge was very
much pleased to have present Mr. Wm.
Manson, M.P.P., and Mr. Tomlinson of
the Agricultural Department. Mr.
Manson, on being introduced by the
President, Mr. E. Ashton, opened th?
fair with a short, but very appropriate
address, complimenting the farmers of
Graham Isiand on their efforts and
stated that it spoke well for Graham
Island and that the future of the island
as a farming community was assured.
He also dwelt on the question of roads
and aid to settlers.
Mr. Tomlinson acted as judge, and
being in a position to fully criticize the
exhibits, gave a very instructive address as to arranging exhibits and
pointed out that in displaying flowers
to have each variety arranged as it were
separate and distinct in the bunch so as
to bring out the individuality and best
points of the flowers; where a certain
number of any kind of exhibit were
called for to have the stated amount;
that people examining the exhibits
should not touch them, as many kinds
of produce were damaged and consequently would be likely to lose a prize
although they might be the best product. His advice as to endeavoring to
raise the standard of quality was very
much appreciated.
Many of the farmers expressed themselves as being very much pleased with
the work that Mr. Tomlinson did in giving advice and alb wing personal interviews, and that the government should
be highly commended in securing the
services of so valuable a man and for
establishing such an important branch
to assist settlers in new communities.
Notes of the Fair.
It is well worth mentioning that on
the peculiar red soil north of Lawn Hill
it was stated that nothing would grow
and that the soil was worthless. A.
Richardson has demonstrated that by
proper cultivation and the use of fer
tilizer,   he  has  produced  all   kinds of
farm produce of a quality that needs r.o
cemment, as he took 21  prizes  at the
exhibition.     The judge complimenting
very   highly   the   quality   of   produce
wherever   fertilizer   was   used.     Mr.
Richardson has a very broad experience
in market gardening and has acquired
through practical knowledge, information  of great value to the farmers of
this island, and is willing to  assist-in
any way anyone who will take an interest in up-to-date farming.     We would
strongly advocate that he be appointed
to a place on the staff with Mr. Tomlinson, so that he might be able to devote
some of his time instructing the farmers
of Graham Island, as at the beginning
of the farming industry such information as his experience has taught him
will be of untold value.
Graham Island Won Cup For Best
Collection At Prince Rupert Fair
Garden  and Field Products Outstanding Features at Show—Island Exhibitors
Carry Off Over Fifty Prizes-—Other Districts Outclassed
General Verdict Great Boost For Island.
It might be well to. point out that in
some cases farmers find diseased and
infected plants and seeds among their
products, and it is strongly urged upon
them that such produce be destroyed
by fire and be prevented from spreading, as it may be easy to prevent but
hard to cure if infection spreads.
The following deserve great credit
for their untiring efforts in carrying
goods over the trails and roads to the
exhibition and in making the same such
a success: A. Richardson, A. Delahay,
W. Prettijohn, J. Hubley and George
Ashton.
A very interesting feature of the day
was an address given by Mrs. Hodges in
the form of an allegory. Mrs. Hodges
has a farm at Tel-el river, and it may
be noted that her flower and vegetable
garden would be a credit to any country.
An abbreviated sketch of her address is
as follows:
"In a community where everybody is
so deeply interested in farming, and in
the welfare of the farmer we find great
minds approving of what is being done;
but we want occasionally a knocker, as
a good knocker is the back-bone of any
community, in that it brings out the best
there is in us. Knock hard; say we cannot; and we get down and show what
we can do, and we women of this island
are going to show the men what we can
do. We have (bean) a long time endeavoring to show what could be done,
and if we mind our (peas) and Q's, and
the cutworms (lettuce) alone, we cannot help but succeed; but if we sit idly
by waiting for something to (turnip),
we will find that it will never (butter)
our (parsnips) in the dairy business.   If

Prince Rupert's first exhibition was
a signal success from every point of
view. The exhibits were numerous and '
splendid, the weather was ideal, and
the crowds large and appreciative. The
officers of the Association, and especially Mr. L. Bullock-Webster, the indefatigable secretary, are to be heartily
congratulated on the results of their
labors, because everything passed off
so smoothly and orderly as if the exhibition had been years in existence.
The opening ceremonies were conducted by the President, J. H. McMul-
lin, Mayor Patullo, William Manson,
M. P. P., and the Hon. Price Ellison,
minister of agriculture.
The Minister of Agriculture was~given
a most enthusiastic reception by the
the large gathering. In opening his,
address he drew attention to the many
difficulties he had experienced in reaching Prince Rupert in time for the opening. For the purpose of gathering information concerning the interior he
went by way of Edmonton and Tete
Jaune Cache. As the difficulties of
travel, increased he feared many times
he would be unable to reach Prince
Rupert in time. Coming down the
Fraser the boatmen objected to running
at night, telling him of the chances they
took of landing in Kingdom Come.
"Turn her loose," I said. "Prince
Rupert or Kingdom Come is good enough
for me." He had cancelled nine engagements for opening other exhibitions in order that he might reach Prince
Rupert in time. The speaker was
somewhat afraid that it would be impossible to congratulate Prince Rupert
on its first exhibition, but from what
he had already seen of it he was astonished and the citizens of the district
had every reason to feel proud. The
hon. gentleman further referred to the
resources of Northern British Columbia
and formally declared Prince Rupert's
first exhibition open.
Exhibition Notes.
Graham Island made a splendid showing with garden and field products. The
congratulatory remarks passed on the
exhibits by visitors were numerous.
Every exhibitor from Graham Island
secured prizes. 	
""""Delkatla" Wtlson had a tent all to
himself to house his big collection of
vegetables. He made a splendid impression and firmly established himself
with Prince Rupert people as the market gardener of the North.
A great deal of the credit for Mr.
Wilson's display is due to C. C. Carter,
who grew the vegetables at Delkatla
and sold them to Mr. Wilson.
W. J. Leary, A. Richardson and Mattock Bros'., are to be heartily congratulated on their successes. Their exhibits were a great boost for the island.
In the poultry section Charles Harrison and W. J. Smith won first prizes."
W. Shrubsallof Prince Rupert showed
what he could do in the matter of putting up fish. His display was a creditable one and much admired. Hon.
Price Ellison left a large order with
Shrubsall.
All the leading business houses and
manufacturers of Prince Rupert had
excellent exhibits at the fair.
Charles Harrison's exhibit of curios
from Graham Island received a good
deal of notice and admiration. Mr.
Harrison acted as one of the judges in
the arts and crafts section.
Rev. W. Hogan and Rev. and Mrs.
Greene attended the Anglican Synod,
which met in Prince Rupert last week.
Oh, you pumpkin ! Wilson was up to
some mischief as usual. He stole a
pumpkin from Harrison's patch and exhibited same, gaining first prize. Never
mind, Charlie, even although Wilson
tells the joke, the credit of raising that
noble pumpkin belongs to you.
Islanders had a rough time coming
home from the fair on the Prince Albert,
every passenger on board, with the exception of Mr. C. W. Homer, being
sea-sick. We won't go to sea any more,
but to see the fair again, you bet, so
long as Captain Moorehouse and Chief
Officer Mackenzie are "on deck."

we are going to succeed we must raise
gold. You think I am fooling: but we
must raise the best kind of gold—18
(carrots). In numbers there is strength,
but I can show you one that stands alone,
whether dressed in white, brown, red
or yellow. Is a very strong and lusty
fellow he is, our friend, the onion. If
you try to cut his acquaintance he is
apt to bring tears to your eyes. A
neighbor of mine was in for dinner and
asked if I grew my vegetables in the
cellar. I said no. Why, he said, they
tasted a little (celery). In comingdown
to rhe fair I passed a garden of beautiful flowers. I climbed the fence and tried
to (cabbage) a few. After all, it is the
kind words and smiles that are the
flowers along life's pathway, and if we
scatter a few kind works here and there
we might be able to (cauliflower). The
farmer is too serious. With him it is
pl.d, plod, plod. Now let us never mind
what we have left behind. Bid farewell to care and sorrow. Laugh and be
gay just for to-day, and look with hopeful eyes on to (marrow). I hope you
will all get rich, so rich that you will be
able to put one and four 0's after your
name; yes, and do better, put eight 0's
(potatoes). If I have not stuck to my
subject you can just (beet) me; yes,
you.may do more than that, you can
(mangel) me. '
Mr. Manson and Mr. Tomlinson, accompanied by A. J. Gordon, assistant
road superintendent, and The Islander
representative at the exhibition, A. R.
Mallory, visited many of th,e farms in
the district. Mr. Manson was greatly
impressed with the work being done
and the progress made in the settlement since his visit last year.

Mr. Manson at Lawn Hill f
A large and representative meeting
was held at Lawn Hill on the evening
of the exhibition, for the purpose of
disussing affairs of interest to the farmers of the island, as Mr. Manson and
Mr. Tomlinson were present to listen.
Mr. Edward Ashton was chairman
and gave an address of considerable
length, dividing it into three subject,
viz.: Aid to settlers; Progress and development of the islands; Road construction. He said he was not going to
to citicize the road policy, as the appropriations had increased from $5,000
to $75,000. All he wished was to encourage the good work and to see the
appropriations still more increased. The
work should not be confined to the beach
only, the settlers in the interior should
be considered, and special emergency
appropriations be granted to meet the
incessant demands. In his plea for aid
for settlers, he stated that he had no
desire to dictate for other sections. He
advocated the purchase of up-to-date
land clearing machinery by the government and the setting aside of two in
every 36 sections of land, to be held by
the government and sold at some future
time. The machinery should be used
ta clear certain portions of the settlers'
lands and that when the land set aside
was sold, sufficient money would be derived tp compensate the government
for their outlay. Mr. Ashton had
evidently spent a great deal of timeand
care in compiling of the many things incorporated in his interesting address.
Mr.   Manson,   in    replying,   complimented the chairman on his very able
address,   and  first  took up  the   matter of roads.   He reminded the meeting
that on account of the land not  being
surveyed that it was necessary to proceed with great care in opening up the
country.     Besides, as  they all  knew,
the  land  had  been  taken up by preemptions in every corner of the island,
and in  some  places  very few people
were  near each  other, and said  that
they were trying to expend the money
in a way that would do the most good.
He always advised for large appropriations for roads and would  endeavor to
have an increase.   In the matter of cooperation it was a local proposition, and
would be of great benefit to the people
of the islands in the shipping of goods,
as the  wholesale  merchaht could not
afford to consider small shipments, but
must assure himself  that he could get
sufficient  quantity to  satisfy his  customers.     By co-operation   a  demand
could be created and sufficient quantity
shipped to warrant a steady market for
produce.    Mr. M-tnson also pointed out
wherein it would benefit the producer,
merchant and consumer.   The question
of aid  to  settlers  was one  that  Mr.
Manson stated  he was  very much in
favor of, but until the agricultural commission had made their report it was
not in order that he should make a
statement as to how the aid should be
extended.     He thought, however, that
a system of cheap money in the way of
loans would have a tendency to develop
individual effort and explained in detail
his idea.    The  question of   drainage
would  be taken up  by the board and
looked  after.      He  entered into   the
question of coal and timber licenses and
pre-emptions,    which   were  fully explained and was listened to with great
interest by the meeting.
