In Passing.
Christmas 1912 has passed and the
old year is nearing its end. During 1912
the Queen Charlotte Islands may be
said to have progressed in many ways.
Foremost has been the development of
the fisheries and large plants have been
established at Aliford Bay and Naden
Harbor, the capital invested running
into millions of dollars. Prospecting
for coal and oil during the year were
carried on by several companies under
great difficulties, and we trust that
success is in store for those who are
really trying to find what they are looking for. On Moresby Island metalliferous mining has had a bit of life put into it by the bonding of several properties, and it is to be hoped that the de-
vevelopment work now in progress will
bear good fruit. The construction of
roads and trails on the islands during
the year were on a larger scale than
ever and there is every reason to believe that the appropriations for next
year will be even larger. The work
done was much more satisfactory. The
population has increased to a considerable extent and new towns and settlements are springing up. Taken all in all
the islands show a steady advance during 1912, and the coming year we trust
will bring even greater prosperity to
the Queen Charlotte Islands.
The Islander wishes all its readers a
bright and prosperous New Year.

Christmas was ushered in bright and
early by a band of carol singers going
their rounds, who rendered several well
known Christmas hymns. The weather
was of a seasonable nature, a little snow
having fallen to give it the Christmas
touch. During the day a feeling of
good will was evident and in many of
the homes dinnerparties and Christmas
trees were given. Mr. Smith of the
Premier Hotel, following his usual custom, gave a dinner end a large number
accepted the invitation. Mrs. Scowcroft of the boarding house, also gave
a dinner and in the evening the children
had a Christmas tree.

and the hostess looked charming in her
wedding gown of white silk. The
dining room was prettily decorated for
the occasion and everyone enjoyed them-
sdrVer thoroughly. During the course
of the evening songs and recitations
were given by several of those present.
The dance music was supplied by an
orchestra under the capable direction
of Professor Solomon. About midnight

before parting the company gave three
hearty cheers for the host and hostess.

with pieces of hard mussel shell ingeniously fixed in the wood work; and with
these home made instruments they were
highly successful in obtaining all the
fish and seals that they required. For
salmon and trout they also had their
wooden fish traps and sharpenedbranches
cf the spruce trees, which they embedded firmly into the bed of the river,
and on these the salmon were impaled
whist ascending the stream. Hunbreds
of these sharpened branches, water worn
and decaying, can be seen at the present
day in the bed- of Naden river. The
easiest and most usual custom was to
tnake a weir of split cedar sticks completely across the river with baskets
made of tbe same material and placed
about twenty yards apart, adhering to
the weir with small apertures through
which the salmon and trout could enter
but could not escape, as the orifice eon-
verged inwards. All these old fashioned
articles are not in constant use at the
present day and can no longer be seen
as they were formerly, as they are being
superceeded by the'.white man's articles
uf utility; these and the famous Haida
canoes are gradually giving way to the
white man's guns, fish-nets and boats,
as the Haida wigwams have already disappeared in favor of the white man's
frame dwellings. The next article will
be the first on the Legends of the Haida
Nation.
