Says Policy Would
Sweep All Canada
■
Mr. H. S. Clements, M. P., Declares
No Doubt Exists of Naval
Plans' Popularity.
Fisherman Thought Drowned. General NeWS Items.
Mr. H. S. Clements, M. P. for Comox-
Atlin, who came west from Ottawa for
the holidays, is confident that If the
Borden naval policy were presented to
the people as is suggested by some
Liberal papers it would meet with overwhelming approval and many of the
seats would go by acclamation. In Mr.
Clements' opinion the bringing forward
of the so-called Laurier policy has only
strengthened the Borden policy in Que-
* bee. Mr. Clements pointed out that
the $35,000,000 proposed to be spent on
the navy will not add to the debt of the
country but will be paid out of the
general revenue and the three battleships will remain under Canadian control.
How popular Mr. Borden's policy is.
he states, was shown by the enthusiasm
. with which it was received by an
audience that packed every available
inch of gallery space in the House of
Commons.
Mr. Clements thinks that there is no
doubt but that the Dominion Government
will erect terminal elevators at both
Vancouver and Prince Rupert. He was
glad to be able to state that an amicable
arrangement was being come to between the Dominion and Provincial
• Governments regarding the Indian reserves questions. He was pleased, also,
that the present government was
recognizing British Columbia's needs in
the matter of postal and telegraph
service.
Peter Freeman, a fisherman, is believed to have lost his life recently off
the Queen Charlotte Islands. Freeman,
who was a member of the crew of the
halibut schooner Johanna H., of Seattle,
was out in a dory with a companion
when they lost their bearings in a dense
fog. Freeman kept rowing, but his
companion fell asleep from exhaustion,
and, on waking up some time later,
found himself alone. Freeman had
vanished and the dory was rolling in
trough of the sea. Next day the survivor was picked up by another dory,
and as no trace of the missing man has
been found it is believed that he slipped
overboard out of sheer exhaustion and
perished in the cold waters.
The steel will be laid and trains will
be running into Telkwa in the early
spring. .
An Anglican church is to be erected
at Tow Hill on the east coast of Graham island.
The head office of the Lueky Jim
Mininf Company has been moved from
Kaslo to Victoria.
Thirty prisoners have been moved
from the jail at New Westminster to
the jail at Nanaimo.
Fleet Of Launches For Government.
The contract for providing the government of British Columbia with a
fleet of six fast launches, some of which
are to be used in connection with the
official duties of the timber inspectors
and others by the fire wardens and
officials of the forest branch in their
work in the coastal districts, has been
awarded to the Hinton Electric Company of Victoria, at a price en block of
$27,014.
 o	
Aids To Navigation.
Before new aids to navigation are
established in British Columbia in the
future the marine and fisheries department will attempt to give at least sixty
days' notice.
The gas buoy off Lawn Point, Skidegate Inlet, will be established in the
following new position: Lat. north 53,
25 minutes and 35 seconds, long, west
131, 53 minutes, 4 seconds.
The black buoy now established about
four miles south of Lawn Point gas
buoy will be replaced by a gas buoy.
TheBe changes will take place on or
about March 1st. Any misunderstanding in connection with the new aids to
navigation in future will rest entirely
with those in charge of vessels.
Denmark has a law that prevents a
merchant from having more than two
clearing sales a year.
The first Christian work on the
Queen Charlotte islands was undertaken
in 1876 by Archdeacon Collison.
After hard work and a strenuous
fight the citizens of New Hazelton are

A hospital for women will be established in South London, because of at
least a supposed demand that women
want women doctors.
E. G. McConkey will erect a seventeen storey hotel in Toronto on west
King street. It will have 500 rooms

noon and 5 p. m. This will serve to
mark the starting and quitting time for
all city employees.
H. B. Townsend has been appointed
government agent at Rossland to succeed John Kirkup, who has been appointed government agent at Alberni

worth of minerals, British Columbia

It is expected that there will be a
large increase in the appropriations
this year for Skeena District, which
will also mean that more money will be

trails on the Islands.

Everybody is doing it—buying tickets

An ounce of prevention may be worth

An ideal health resort—The Queen
Charlotte Islands. Perhaps that's the
reason why doctors are not so anxious
to locate here.
The careful gardener will not burn
his leaves, but will use them for covering the base of his young trees.; but
the amateur poet should gather his
leaves together in a large galvanised
iron barrel, and, after soaking them in
paraffin, use them to start the furnace
fire in lieu of other kindling. This will
save both fuel expense and return
postage.

The weather on the Queen Charlotte
Islands this winter has been very mild,
in fact all winters are nearly alike.
It is true there has been a little frost
and snow, but nothing to speak of.
Local chicken farmers are doing well

When Adam dwelt in Eden,
He lived the simple life.
He did not know a care of woe,
And neither did his wife.
No autos fleet dodged up the street,
And threatened him to slay-
No streets were there in Eden fair,
In good old Adam's day.
When Adam dwelt in Eden,
He lived a life of peace,
There were no gunmen then to shun,
Nor wise, strong armed police.
Though he would rove,  through fieid
and grove,
He did not hunt or slay,
The guides and deer were free from fear
In good old Adam's day.
When Adam dwelt in Eden,
A simple chap was he;
He did not seek for food each week,
He plucked it from a tree.
The festive hen was common then,
All loved her gentle lay,
Cold storage guys had not grown wise
In good old Adam's day.
When Adam dwelt in Eden
He did nought,  I confess,
But gathered leaves and design Eve's
And his own verdant dress.
Still life was not the same, I wot,
As that for which we pay,
With Adam it made quite a hit-
Not me, in Adam's day.

HAIDAS AND THEIR LEGENDS
(Continued from page 3)
quickly no less than seven had vanished
down this poor individual's throat. Out
of the seven that had disappeared only
one returned as he had evidently gone
down the throat of one of the tribe to
which the soul inside of this monse formerly belonged, instead of the throat of
an enemy. This left six woe-begone
souls or spirits inside of this most unfortunate woman. Most of the old
people firmly believed this story, and
they confidentially would tell you that
every mouse was a devil or evil spirit,
and that when a person was very wicked
he must have swallowed a great number
of mice. I did not ask the chief who
related this story to me what became
eventually of the woman herself, but
doubtless from the number of malevolent spirits located within her, she must
have ultimately become a dainty dish
for the Cloud Chief. There may appear
many apparent condradictions in this
narrative concerning the Haida Deities,
but when we take into consideration
that they have never possessed a written
language and that these stories were
handed down from one generation to
another, we can readily see and understand how these discrepancies arose.
Originally these traditions may have
come into existence hundreds of
years ago when they all probably lived
together in one large settlement, and
as they scattered and lpcated in different places these stories would be told
and retold by the leading men and the
devil doctors of each tribe until each
tribe had eventually its own version.
The principal points to be adduced from
this legend are: firstly, that one and
all of the ancient Haidas believed in
two important gods, one that was good
and the other evil. These two god were
supposed to have minor deities to see
that their commands and wishes were
fully obeyed. The next point as far as
I can possibly ascertain is that the
ancient Haidas fully believed in the
transmigration of the soul.
The   next   article  will   be    entitled
" The Creation of the Haidas."
