For some time past it has been known
that a deal was in negotiation for the
purchase of the property of the Moresby
Island Lumber Company, which includes
a sawmill with a cutting capacity of
75,000 feet per day, at Queen Charlotte
City, and a large number of timber
limits in the vicinity. We understand
the property has changed hands and
that the purchasers are the North
American Timber & Holdings Co., of
Chicago, who also own other large
timber areas on the islands. Several
well known timber men of British Columbia are connected with the company.
It is expected that additions will be
made to the plant here and that operations may commence soon.

!»? JUtVH ———1■■—
A well attended meeting of the Queen
Charlotte Hospital Society took place
on Friday evening, Feb. 7th, at the
Government Office. The meeting was
called for the purpose of electing a
board of management for the year and
conducting any other business towards
the welfare of the society. Those
present were W. H. Fairbairn, C. P.
Johnston, D. Cochrane, E. Girard, J. L.
Barge, G. D. Beattie, P. S. Jack, W. J.
Smith, J. M. Campbell, T. Forbes, E.
N. Valentine, Dr. Wright, and J. Kit-
son, secretary.
Mr. W.J. Smith was appointed chair-
man.
The secretary read the minutes of
last meeting, which were approved. He
also submitted a financial report for the
year ending January 1913, which showed
a balance in the Society's favor of over
$200. All outstanding debts had been
paid.   The report was adopted.
The following were appointed trustees
and board of management for the ensuing year : Messrs. E. M. Sandilands,
W. J. Smith, Queen Charlotte; A. J.
Gordon, E. N. Valentine, Skidegate ;
W. V. Doughty, T. Forbes, Aliford
Bay ; W. J. Leary, Miller Creek ; A.
Richardson, Lawn Hill; J. Kitson, Sandspit. From the foregoing the meeting
appointed W. V. Doughty to be president, and A. J. Gordon as vice-president.
The appointment of a secretary was
left to the board of management.
On motion of Mr. Fairbairn, seconded
by Mr. Valentine, P. S. Jack was appointed on the board of management.
Mr. Jack was unwilling to acfc, but the
meeting would not hear of it.
Some discussion ensued regarding tbe
bylaws and it was decided to revise and
amend same. Mr. P. S. Jack thereafter
read uver the bylaws, which were altered
as the meeting thought fit, and finally
passed as amended. A copy of the bylaws will be tiled with the Registrar of
Joint Stock Companies, Victoria.
The matter of a lease of the hospital
grounds to the Society was taken up
and the board will write Mr J. E. Corlett on the subject. It was also agreed
that the board write Mr. D. R. Young
for a statement of disbursements of the
$1000 received from the Provincial Gov
ernment in trust for  the Queen Char-
Lawik Hill Light In Working Order.
The steamer Quadra, Captain Mae-
pherson, engaged in looking after the
aids to navigation on this coast, arrived
in the inlet on Sunday night and tied up
at Aliford Bay. On Monday the Quadra
towed in the Lawn Hill buoy, the light
on which had become extinguished, and
recharged the tank. On Wednesday
the buoy was replaced, and barring
accidents, wont need any more attention
for twelve months. On her trip north
the steamer took up supplies and material for the big lighthouse at Langara
island, which will be in operation some
time during the coming summer. Capt.
Macpherson reported the weather was
very severe and delayed them considerably at Langara. The new lighthouse
at Cape St. James will be commenced
this summer.

Mr. Barge, that the board endeavour to
get the Provincial Government to increase the grant from $300 to $500 per
annum, and that the Hon. Dr. Young
be communicated with to that effect.

M. P., will be written to regarding this
matter.
The. secretary, Mr. Kitson, was
thanked for his services on motion of
Mr. Barge, seconded by Mr. Fairbairn.

others made short remarks, all stating
that the future was bright and that the
Doctor could rely on the support of the
various concerns employing labor, and
the people in general.

Pre-emptions.
A    Victoria    contemporary,     " The
Week,"   is   of   the opinion  that the
government should curtail the  extent
of territory to be applied for by pre-
emptors, limiting applicants to eighty
acres.   The editor is of the opinion that
a smaller section of land would be cultivated, while few are now doing  anything with   the   larger  grant  of   one
hundred and sixty acres.     Considering
the inducements offered by the C. P. R.
and the Commonwealth of Australia, it
is a wonder that so many take up preemptions in the isolated sections of the
Province.     It  means years  of  toil to
obtain a competency, and  few   of  the
male sex care   to  bring in  wives  and
families to share the trials and difficulties encountered  by the  new   settler.
What we require is to give the settler
a  start.     Only poor men  will   face a
country where houses must be built and
the woods cleared.    We have  a large
number of single men on pre-emptions
and they are but the forerunners of the
actual settler.     They make the start,
working on the roads during the summer
and spending the  winter on  the   land
they have pre-empted.    If the government could see the way clear to assist
settlers,  by advancing  the  money required to make the land profitable, we
would have hundreds of settlers where
we now have  but  dozens.     A  settler
could give no more time to eighty acres
than he now gives to one hundred and
sixty, if he  is  compelled to work all
summer to exist during the winter. The
argument has been used that the pre-
emptor "sits" on his location for two
years, and then  applies  for  a  Crown
Grant.     He complies with the law, in
regard to improvements, before receiving title, and men have been appointed
recently to see that  the  requirements
of the Act shall be carried out.    Would
it not be of more advantage to change
the Land Act, giving the pre-emptor
the   land   during say  ten  years,   and
loaning him enough to start work during the first year, withholding the title
until the land is  improved,   or during
the whole period ?     We all know that
the present land laws are not applicable,
so far as our islands are concerned.
Would-be pre-emptors are seeking good
land at all times; but are turned away
with the information that there is little
of value, that is not covered with a coal
or timber license.   Where we have land
of any value, it appears that land purchasers know more about  it  than  the
immigrant who  visits the islands, and
finds no place where he can receive information.   There should be some means
of readily reaching those who can give
news regarding the unappropriated land.
It should be less difficult to know where
to look for that  kind  of  information.
It would also be of interest if  we had
officials conversant with the possibilities
of the soil and the best places on which
to locate.     Here we have hundreds of
thousands of acres of land, all valuable
from resources of a kind that would enhance the revenues  of  the  Province;
but it appears to be a "no man's land."
Owners of licenses to prospect and exploit timber and coal lands have secured
certain rights; but the land will always
be  the  main  source of revenue  to  a
government   and  to individuals.    The
holders of coal and timber licenses are
not retaining the property  to  benefit
the Province—they are looking out for
their  individual  interests—and  it  behooves us to do the same thing.   Every
man who has a pre-emption is doing his
level best to comply with the  requirements of the law, to hold one hundred
and sixty acres.    Some have wives and
families to support, are bringing in the
"bone and sinew" of any country, to
live on the restricted area allowed the
one individual.     It would be more advisable to cut down the  limits of the
timber area  now  covered by licenses,
and to 1st us  have  more  of  the  pre-
emptor class.     The  timber  and other
resources, now under license, will soon
vanish once the owners  decide that it
will pay to   "cart them away."    The
settleriB a permanent institution—something we must have, if we intend making our island an integral portion of the
Province.

HAIDAS AND THEIR LEGENDS
(Continued from page 3)
the large cedar box  iri  which   the sun
and the lire-stick had   been   placed for
safe-keeping   by  the   raven   when   he
descended from the kingdom   of  light.
Day after day the slave and the heaven
born man wandered southward without
proper nourishment and  in great fear
of the raven.   Hungry and tired as they
were  yet   they carried   with them the
box that contained the sun and the fire-
stick.     One evening, faint and weary,
they sat down near  a little creek, and
the   woman   being  very  hungry,   disappointed and worn out, wept bitterly,
as   they   for  days had never  had any
decent food to eat.     Her husband also
felt the pangs of  hunger, yet both he
and the woman were afraid  to  return
to the raven's house in case that he being very angry would kill them.     Her
husband left her weeping and walked a
short distance up  the  stream  looking
for something that might appease their
appetites, and at last he found a dead
land otter, but could not eat it as they
had no means of making a fire to cook
it.    He brought it, however, back With
him to their camp.    Next morning they
remembered that they were supposed to
have the raven's fire-stick in the  box
which they   were  carrying,   and  they
determined in spite of all consequences
to try it.    The young man got it out of
the box and instantly made a fire, and
the two cooked the  body of the  land
otter,  ate it, and   proceeded  on   their
journey.      When   they   reached   Cape
Bali, they were again hungry, but the
young man began to sing some  of the
songs   taught him  in   the kingdom  of
light, and the sea receeded four  miles
from the shore and left one great whale
stranded on the beach.   The young man
got rocks and stones and carried them
on his back to where the whale was and
made a barrier around it so that it could
not escape, and thus described a circle
which the  old   Haidas stated could be
seen when they were young men.
