The !. W. W. Inciting A Strike.
The Industrial Workers of the World,
better known as the "I Won't Works,"
are trying to create trouble at the fishing camps at the north end of the
Island. They are inciting the white
fishermen, as well as the Indians, to
strike, unless they receive five cents
per pound for spring salmon. Last
year the fishermen were paid 3 1-2cents
per pound and made good money,
averaging from $5 to $15 per day.
When good money is made at camps
the  news   soon   travels, and this year
hundreds  of  new men have arrived at
*
the fishing grounds, some of whom we
are   told  don't   know  the   first   thing
about a small boat or of fishing.   Among
the new arrivals this  year, of  course,
are several   "I Won't Works."     This
bunch of soreheads and troublemongers
would not be satisfied if they received
ten cents per pound for spring salmon,
and the only thing to do with   them  is
to ship them off the  Islands  and put
them in the "cooler" for a few months.
With   that  class   out  of  the way, we
are quite sure any reasonable demands
made by the fishermen will be met by
the cannery managers.

Wharves Fcr Queenstown And
>ort.
Happiness reigned supreme here on
Victoria day, when 50 couples, lovers of
the art terpsichorean, assembled in
Barge's hall at 9 o'clock.
About 9:30 there was nought to be
seen but flying feet, handsome faces, a
bewildering vision of beauty, youth and
happiness, while high above all rose the
notes of the music, now soft, now low,
ringing again, faster and faster as the
hours sped on and the dancers entered
more and more into the spirit of the
evening. Truly the sheen of hair, flash
•f jewels and the play  of feet never
looked more inviting to lovers of the
light fantastic, immortalized in song
and story, associated with all that tells
of youth, life and pleasure, than it did
that evening.
Midnight supper was served, when
£.11 rested for a brief season of merry
conversation. Then back to the floor
again, where the last flying hour was
chased away with dreamy gliding waltz
and ev«r popular two step.
More than one knight errant and lady
fair, of these latter days, will have a
kindly memory of an enjoyable evening
spent at the Skidefate Concert Band
dance in Queen Charlotte.
>,   J. F. Macdonald Returns.
J. F. Macdonald has returned from
a visit to his old home in Aberdeenshire, Scotland, and has resumed his
duties as Dominion constable at Masset.
During his visit to the old country, Mr.
Macdonald gave several lectures on
"Canadian Opportunities," and as a
result, large numbers of Aberdonians
are expected to emigrate.
Ia the supplementary estimates tabled
in the House of Commons a tew days
ago, appropriations for a wharf at
Queenstown and Lockeport were included. The former receives $5,000,
and the latter $4,000.
 o	
Fortunes Of War.
It is hardly to be realized that the
Balkan war would effect even our own
Queen Charlotte Islands. Yet such is a
fact. The Duke of Sutherland, who
has been negotiating for the purchase
of hundreds of thousands of acres of
land in this province, made arrangements to purchase large tracts of land
on Graham Island. Before completing
the deal, the war was in progress and
fearing a European rising, he cancelled
the proposition, which meant the loss
of a fortune to several of our land
owners.

JEDWAY'S BOOM.
Editor Queen Charlotte Islander.
Dear Sir,—I submit the following
beautiful poem for your consideration.
If sung to the tune of Ta-ra-ra boom
de ay and accompanied by booze, the
effect is lovely.
Jedway town is going to boom,
Things are going to happen soon ;
Coppers riz up to the moon-
Miners working night and noon.
Everybody feeling glad-
Buying booze from good old dad.
No time now for looking sad,
Never more will times be bad.
Come along and buy a claim,
You will never loose the same ;
Come and share our Jedway's fame
And make for yourself a name.
Dead ones better stay away,
Only live ones count today ;
Bring enough your bills to pay
And from us you'll never stray.
Now, I better end this strain
Before it gives us all a pain ;
I may just add that I'm insane,
That is why I here remain.
I do not wish to add to my already
weighty laurel wreath, so I prefer to
remain in anonymous—Yours to a cinder,
The Optimist.
require summer homes along our inlets.
They should be allowed to purchase
twenty or thirty acres of land on which
their families could reside. We have a
superior climate to the cities south, and
many owners of farms in the Northwest would be glad to have homes here.
In time (and the Good Lord send it
rapidly), we will have better steamer
communication, and many will want
homes on the islands, from which they
can go weekly to their business houses
in Prince Rupert, leaving their wives
and families to enjoy the best climate
in the whole Dominion.

Purchasing Land.
To the Editor Islander
Sir,—There are many persons who
cannot comply with the requirements
of the Land Act, so far as preempting claims are concerned. We
would like to buy small pieces of land
on Graham Island, and would also like
to have a fair chance, with all others,
to obtain information regarding the
land open for purchase. Under the
existing laws, the man or men who can
ascertain where land is open, have the
first chance at purchasing. Would it
not be more advisable to place all open
land in competition, reserving whatever
land may be required for the bona-fide
pre-emptor. It would also, to my mind,
be far better if the quantity of land
sold were smaller than 640 acres. No
small farmer requires that quantity of
land for his own use. If the land is the
property of the people, let those who
desire it buy at the highest figure, thereby giving the people something more
than a certain fixed price for it. The
good land will then bring its value, and
the poor land will not be foisted on a
"gullible" public. In the near future
many residents  of  Prince Rupert will
