Tired of repairing brow logs  and replacing skids that the  '"bugs" have eaten or the tide  washed out, the Osborne Logging Co. has constructed a concrete brow log and apron. This  has never been tried before, it  is believed, and the Company  is interested to see how it stands  up.  The structure is over sixty  feet long and thirty feet wide,  and at the deepest place it is  over twelve feet thick. It is reinforced with several thousand  feet of cable, and over a thousand bags of cement were used.  While the original cost is high,  it is thought that the cost of  maintaining a wooden dump  over a period of. years would  exceed it. ���*���'>:���  Pictured here as they plan  another concert for your Sunday evening listening are  Grace Lowery and Roy Locks-  ley of the CBC's network show  Mrs. Arnold Winegarden .. .  Gibson's Pioneer Laid To  Rest On May 16th  - "Mrs. Arnold Winegarden, 73.  passed away quietly in her  home at. Gibson's Landing on  Monday, May 14, and was laid  to rest May 16 in the little private cemetery .of 1 the Gibson  family near' the United Church,  which was bunt;-by~her father,  George William Gibson, founder of Gibson's Landing.  Many old friends attended  the services, which were conducted by Rev. Bushfield of the  United Church.  Mrs. Winegarden came to  Gibson's Landing in May, 1887,  and lived there for.158 years^  She is survived by her'hus-  tband, two daughters and Hwo-  sbns. Maude (Mrs. Guy Fisher)  and Gertrude (Mrs. John Corlett) still live at Gibson's Landing, Nelson, with the Provincial Police, is stationed at Pow-  elT*'River, and Arnold is over-'  seas with the Engineer's.- -  She is also survived by three  sisters, Mrs. A. White of Victoria, Mrs. A. McCall of Eagle  Harbor, and Mrs.; P. Stromme  of Victoria.  . Mrs. ^iWinegardeh's father,  George William Gibson, came  to what ;is now Gibson's "Landing- in-li886r aboiai^d^i&r 18''f00t  boat, they Swamp" Angel, which  he had -built at Oyster Bay,  Vancouver Island.^He was 57 at  the time, and with him were  his two ;.sons, George W. and  Ralph Henry.  For 27 years, until he was  laid to rest in, the little cemetery near the United; Church  which he built, Mr. Gibson and  his sons: worked diligently at  carving a home out of the wilderness. His wife, whom he had  married at Bay City, Michigan,  followed-him from the Island  soon afterward.  Mr. Gibson took an active  part in the growth of Gibsqn's  Landing, serving as postmaster  and "also-.as magistrate for 25  years. He was also on the first  school board.  Mrs. Wiriegarden's daughter,  Msr. P. -Corlett of Gibson's,  has many interesting reminiscences of" the early days of the  settlement. At that time the  school -was in a' little log cabin  near- the present meat market.  The first road was the one now  yknown   as the "old, road"^ between the wharf and the present schoolhouse on the hill.  It  was built.by volunteer  labor.  Two "years after the Gibsons  settled, other families followed.  The Blakes, Glassfords, Fletchers and Soames were among the  first, and the old Gibson home  was open to them at all times.  It was open to anyone needing  a meal or a bed, even though  they had to sleep on the floor;  .   In those   early   days people  rowed or sailed to Vancouver,  but. around 1891 Capt. Bridhian  started    an    old   side-wheeler,  the Mermaid. In 1893 smallpox  was so bad that that Sunberry  called   ever    other   day    with  fresh meat arid provisions. The  first   real passenger boat  was  the   Saturha,   which   cairie   in  one   day,   remained ; overnight  and returned the  next.-   -----  Today, Gibson's Landing as .a--  flourishing community, owes a  , great deal  to  its_ pioneer citizens such as the Gibson family  : who carved it out.

SECHELT���  $107 Raised For  Sechelt Fire Brigade  The Sechelt volunteer fire  brigade had a raffle and picture show to raise funds for  equipment recently.  Mrs. William Youngson made  and donated a 15-pound iced  fruit cake (decorated) for; the  raffle, which was won by Miss  Patricia Drew. This beautiful  cake brought in the sum of $54  for the brigade. A capacity  audience attended the show,  and the gate receipts were  $53.00.  Mr. Barnhart, a building contractor of Vancouver, recently arrived at Half Moon Bay  to prepare a site for his new  home on the lots he recently  purchased, part of the new subdivision at Welcome Beach.  Mr. Barnhart is an ex-hockey player, having been on some  of the teams in the East.  With him is one of his daughters, Mrs. Bruce H. Black, who  recently completed 3i years'  service with the RCAF (WD);  receiving her discharge in January. Her husband is an American officer, a captain in a  battalion station in New Guinea. He served for five months  in the Phillipines. Before the  war, Capt. Black played professional baseball.  Mrs. Black won quite a name  for herself as a swimmer during the years 1934 to 1937,  when she was known as Betty  Barnhart. In 1936 she won the  Wrigley Cup at Kelowna, and  held theyB.C. Championship at  that time.' Also during 1936 she  won the 3-mile race from the  Gorge to the Empress Hotel in  Victoria. In the same year she  won the 220-, 440-, and 880-  yard races at the Kitsilano  Pool.  In 1937 she was chosen as  a member of the British Empire  team. To her disappointment,  she met with an accident two  weeks before the team left for  England, when someone making  a high dive accidentally struck  her, fracturing her skull and  rupturing her ear drums.

The rough plans  were laid, a large amount of hustling done -in^  the scattered territory we hope to serve, and  finally, a pubhshing" date, set. The uncertain-  ties of wartirrie operation got in a couple of  licks, however, and tWo postponements of that  date were necessitated before we got the. greeri  light. Nor has getting this first edition to you  lessened the problems of publishing a paper  in this territory, and for our shortcomings we  ask forbearance . . . and co-operation.  With the co-operation of our readers we  can do much. The field to be seryed is broad;  it is, we fully believe, on the threshold of an  expansion which will more than justify your  publishers' optimism. We shall strive to do  our share, but a good weekly newspaper always has been and always will be only the  product of true' co-operative effort for a common goaL���community advancement���of reader and publisher, correspondent and advertiser.  Our editorial policy is very broad; we offer you the use of these columns for your news  and your views, without deletion or restriction  other than the dictates of good taste. If your  particular community has a problem which  publicity would help to solve, we'll be glad to  help . . . if you will first help yourselves by  supporting your newspaper.  To many of you these first two editions  will come without charge; after that we must  depend on subscribers for the continuance of  our editorial life. If you are not yet a subscriber, how about taking a chance with us? We  think you'll be well repaid.  YOU'RE NOT WELCOME!

This.urban area has been  put under emergency regulations which amount,  almost ,to quarantine, and the government has  appealed to the people of outside communities  to stay away from the cities unless they have  urgent business there.  For the time being the "welcome" sign  has been taken down and the ^purist propaganda put into reverse. In both these cities  there are more people now than can be properly housed or fed, and a midsummer rush of  visitors would create a condition of extreme  congestion. In addition, the summer months  will see the return of many servicemen and  their families, and they, of course, will rightfully have priority on accommodation. Polite- .  ly but plainly, outsiders are being invited to  stay away.  For peninsula residents, as indeed for  those of other communities to whom the suggestion is equally directed, this will be a good  year to see some of those other parts of B. C.  with which they ought to be better acquainted.  The central and upper Vancouver Island offers excellent holiday spots within easy reach;  there are cruises along the coast to the north  which are well worth taking; and the almost-'  forgotten yet breathlessly beautiful country  through which the P.G.E. runs should appeal  to those who wish to venture a bit further  afield.  NEW RACKETS APPEARING  ITWOULD NOT BE AMISS if The News  warned its readers to beware of the coming operations of high-pressure mining stock  salesmen who hope to cash in on the war-won  savings of Canadians. That this warning was  justified and timely is evident in the curr.ent  wave of "stock market tips" and "sure thing  buys" being sent to local residents by  certain unscrupulous dealers in Ontario.  One of these interesting missives fell into  .   our hands only yesterday. A Toronto firm offers to supply clients, for a small fee, With tips  ,v    on stocks to buy, and advice on when to sell,  with the implied guarantee of profits. To impress the gullible speculator with the honesty  of  its intentions, the firm asks only that ten  per cent of the net profits after six months be  ^ sent to it. They "trust you" implicitly to play  ��� ^square with them.  :.;-���:    y This is a rather obvious attempt to influ-  ��� eiice the market for personal gain, for it is extremely doubtful whether any clients would  ever contribute ten per cent of profits made  on Speculation, But the firm can reap a harvest  by also buying xhe stocks which it recommends,  forcing  the .prices up. by "tips" to the thou-  . ������* sands of potential customers and then., selling  When the price is right. The process 'San be  -    repeated with an ^almost unlimited number of./.  ?~ ~ stocks^ The' only Ones' ta "suffer"would "be the  speculators caught in the crashl and the mining  .������;ventures themselves, which would suffer  an',J.  alrnqst disastrous loss of the investors' confi- '  dence  -.  The operations of these high-pressure  stock salesmen are centered in Ontario, but  securities commissioner in other provinces have  issued warnings to the. public that stock was  being promoted which was not authorized for  sale in those provinces. One of the contributing factors has been the repeal of the Ontario  Securities Act, which was regarded by the mining industry as too restrictive. A new act was  framed, but the legislature was dissolved before  it was ableio deal with it, and apparently^ there  has been little enforcement of the securities  laws pending the passage of this new. act.  The situation is regarded as so serious that  such staunch supporters of Premier Drew as  the Montreal Gazette have urged him to take  imriiediate action. Says the Gazette:    ,  ''Mining development and share purchases  remain legitimate, recognized speculation and  are as best highly speculative. But they should  not allowed to descend to sheer thieving under  the laws of Ontario."  Meanwhile, investors owe it to themselves  to exercise great caution, not  only to  guard  against unwise investments, but also  to safeguard Canada's embryo mining industry from  manipulations which will hamper its progressive'development.

TRUISMS  The antidote for sorrow,  worry and discouragement is  useful occupation.  The next best thing to doing  a kindly act is to be appreciative of one.  .Progress     comes    from   not  making the same mistake twice.  It is well that we train our  thought on the right track.  Debt and disease are equally  destructive.  A thing you  don't ""need Is"  dear at any price..  Itis far better to live for a  ���v.' man than to die for one.  Do at least one kind act every  day and your life will grow in  beauty and power.  To hesitate is weakness, to  turn back is defeat.  Look for big values in life  and you will be more likely to  find them.  :This  is the  day of days to .  "demonstrate your worth.  The Golden Rule is twelve  inches long.  Don't worry when you stumble. Remember a worm is about  the only thing that can't fall  down.  Nothing, is improved by anger  except the arch of a.cat's back.  Always be courteous in the  face of discourtesy.  The smile on the face of  some sales people often reminds  me of the top layer of apples  in a box, or berries in a basket.  Tombstones are cold and  cheerless. Yet they always have  a good word for everyone under them.  You can't buy Confidence  and Respect with profanity  and vulgarity.

It is true that the C.C.F. has  been full of programmes, but  every item in them has been  disowned at one time or another, by some C.C.F, spokesman. And a lot of items have  been added to the official pro-  gramrne which cannot be found  in any of their printed versions.  After the fact had become  quite clear that the C.CJF.  could not win on a platform of  changes and amendments to it  Socialism, we had a great many  and it is quite interesting to see  what they really amounted to.  After years of preaching that  Canada should remain neutral  in any war and that all wars  were merely capitalist adventures in imperialism, the C.C.F.  became a war party.  After years of preaching that  the whole machinery, of production and distribution would  - have; to be taken over by the  state, the C.C.F. came down to  suggesting that only a few  giaiit monopolies would be taken over.  After years of promising:  that everything would be run  by boards of "experts" at Ottawa who Would tell us how  everything would be run, the .  C.C.F. completely altered the  story and said that everything  would "be run in some marvelous way by local committees.  After arguing that all capitalist wealth would be destroyed, the C.C.F. came down to  promising that everyone would  be compensated: for - everything  which the state took away  from them, although they have  kept on arguing that they  would at least cut down on the  until none^was being paid,  -in4��resf^n'C government bonds _  w!iiehi^i^$M  Ptarmigan  A CAMERA STUDY FOR COAST NEWS READERS  h^  .1.   ���.������-.  i. < ,  3  Si"-    ���  Let's  S MILE  AMAZING!

To the average worker a smelter in B.C. means  only a reduction in the fear  of unemployment in the  future. He has no overwhelming desire to work in  such a pjace.

It  is something of a paradox  i how ; we are supposed to  "cohs6rve our natural re-.  sources,r when we are raiding them from all sides and  scattering them to the four  winds.  The Deputy Minister of  Labor recentlv helped remove some of our doubts  about post-war employment  when he said that the Government intends to follow  a policy of varying Governs  ment expenditures so as to  , compensate for fluctuations,  in private spending. If this  compensatipn y proves adequate; and Eastern Canada  can produce a suffiehev of  steel, the people of B.C.  have no real need of a  smelter. We certainly don't  want one at Texada or  Stillwater.  Too awful to contemplate  would be one of our sunsets  observed through a pall bf^  smoke, over; terrain blacks  ened by such -an industry;,-;;>  y Instead of being envious of  the' Bast and its stefel-mills  we should pity them.

ARMOURED TRAIN ENGINE  DISGUISED AS BOX CAR  Onb of the best known dieseli  locomotives in Canada���the 90001  of the Canadian National Railways-^  has just been discharged from military  service. On the secret list since  shortly after the etartof the-war, the  9000 had been completely remodelled  in the railway's Transcona shops to  furnish the power for an armoured  train. These shops also, converted  four all-steel Canadian National 'flat  cars and; three all-steel box cars for  this train, which was used in British  Columbia-until the Japanese invasion  menace disappeared. The locomotive  ;was covered with armour plate and  camouflaged to looklike a.boxjcar,  making it difficult for the enemy to  to spot: it-in case of attack.  At present, the 9000 is in the,'C.N.R  shops at-Point St. Charles'havingits  armour plate removed and other  changes effected to fit it for passenger  service. All of thenars have been:  stripped of .their. ;war.dress tand��are;  back in regularireight service;  The Canadian National Railways  pioneered the development of diesel  power for railway servinein Canada:  This was in June, 1925, when it  introduced' the first-oil electric rail  car. This unit, the '-'first * in North  Americano make a transcontinental  run was designed arid built in the  company's shops. On its trial run it  was operated between Montreal-and  Vancouver in 67 hours running time.  By the end of 1928, the 9000, which  was Canada's first diesel locomotive,  made its appearance. This twin unit  ;was thealhelargest and most powerful locomotive of its kind in the  jwbrld. Later, converted to a single  unit engine, the 9000 had been on various passenger and freight runs, chiefly  in thejCentral Region of the National  System, until-the outbreak of the war.  When the 9000 went--into war  service, its ,12-cylinder engine wa��  ���replaced-���with" a new-V-type/^two  cycle, 16-cylinder engine..  Abovepa wection of'the armoured  train. Below, the 9000.

'     \  Two announcements of major  importance to the general development of the Province and  to the Peace River District in  particular, were made during  the week by Premier John Hart  and Hon. ^Herbert Anscomb,  Minister of Public Works.  The arinoimcementS; are , as  follows: ���  1. Letting of the contract for  the construction, of a highway  outlet to the Peace River District at a total cost of $3,132,-.  495, exclusive to the building of  three large steel bridges.  2. Granting of an exclusive  franchise to the- Pacific Great  Eastern Railway to operate a  passenger arid freight bus service over the new highway.  Eight firms tendered on the  Peace-River Highway outlet,, the  work on which was divided into two divisions^namely "A" and  "B" sections. The firm of Gamp-  bell Construction Company of  New Westminster and Toronto,  was the successful bidder for  Section "A", which is from  Summit Lake to Azouetta Lake.  Their bid. was $1,823,555.  Fred Marmix and Company,  of Calgary,;was the successful  tenderer'on'the- "B" section, the  bid being $1,308;940. Section  **B" is - from Azouetta Lake to  Commotion Creek;  In'each instance the tenders  were- considered satisfactory.  Work will-start almost immediately.' The-contracts call for  completion ?of: the road by the  end of "1947; The new: highway  wiUvbe.;15'l 'miles;in,length;and  will be twenty-five feet wide  with;a gravel surface, having  a thirty-two foot' overall width  to provide ;for future-needs.  P.G.E.  FRANCHISE  The Premier announced that  the ��� Government was prepared  to grant an exclusive franchise  to the Pacific Great Eastern for  the operation of a passenger and  freight service by motor transport over the new highway between Prince George and Dawson Creek.  Operation of an extension of  the Pacific Great Eastern Railway into the Peace River dis- -  trict would be enhanced by such  an exclusive franchise as it  would be unfair for the government to construct a highway  costing several million dollars  to compete with its own railway. The Railway Company  would be in both businesses and  consequently* would be able to  benefit from ipassenger_ trayel-  and freight handling that lends"  itself more suitably to highway  transport, Mr. Hart explained.  While the proposal has yet to  be placed before the Directors  of the Pacific Great Eastern  Railway, the Premier is confident that the P.G.E. will be prepared to operate a freight and  passenger bus service.  Under the Premier's proposal,  the Peace River District would  be assured a passenger and;  freight bus service on a highway basis without having to  await the construction of the  extension. The handling of  heavy freight hauls and,:greater  passenger volume would be  taken care of after ��� the Pacific  the Peace River District.  Great Eastern Railway extended its line from Prince George  into Dawson Creek.  The Premier likewise pointed  out that the completion of the  highway would have., a direct  bearing on the construction of  the extension of the P.G.E. railway since the railroad right-of-  way is in close proximity to the  new highway thus, for the major portion of its length obviating the -necessity of building a  tote road < which otherwise  would be necessary in order to  get in materials-and supplies.  FREIGHT RATES  Among other. ��� matters being  discussed: by provincial cabinet  ministers and technical men in  the Civil Service in: .preparation  " for the Dominion-Provincial  Conference, is;. the = question of  equalization of freight rates.  Hon. E. C. Carson, Minister of  Trade and Industry is directing  this study with a view to bringing about a re-arrangement  that will contribute to the development of: the -Province and  .effect-rcMJi-a larfrukbafcfri prices for  certain essential products.  EASTERN BUSINESS ���  Apart from the Dominion-  Provincial Conference and a  discussion of; freight rates, other  matters to be taken up in the  East by Premier John Hart will  include the securing of an international, arrangement in connection- -with' the proposed construction of ^a Victory Highway  along ��� the,yUIS ������Canada boundary line between Grand Forks  and Rossland, and the P.G.E.
