Labor Day week-end brought  many visitors to Gibson's Landing. Among them were Walt  French, visiting his grandmother, Mrs. Macquen; Jack  Pilling; Louise Palmer; Murray  Kane; Dorothy Chaster, and the  former Mae Drummond, now  Mrs. Wilf Thompson.  Most of the campers left on  Monday in the rain, but there  are still a few of them here.  During the storm Monday a  number of sailboats holidaying  for the week-end were forced  yinto Gibsons harbour to shelter  until  the wind went down.  Mr. and IVtrs. R Kippling, on  the comfortable 42-foot yacht  "Seaholm", stopped in for a few  . days on their way home to Vancouver after spending six weeks  at their summer cottage at Jervis Inlet.

Walker, formerly of Half  Moon Bay, is in the Alert Bay  hospital receiving special treatment for a severely crushed,  hand suffered Sunday, Sept. 2,  in a collision between two boats  at Wells Pass during a terrific  storm which raged over the Labor Day week-end. Infection set  in before his injured hand could  be attended to, and he is now  being treated with penicillin.  Walker, with his wife and  small daughter, were aboard  their boat, the "Vagabond", near  Wells Pass at the time the  storm struck. They sought shelter in a small bay, and with-the  gusts of wind estimated at  from 40 to 80 miles an hour,  they tied alongside another boat  for mutual protection.  About two o'clock Monday  morning both boats dragged  their anchors and were driven  onto a sandy beach. It was  while.Walker was trying to prevent them from smashing together that his hand was jammed between the two boats.  The vessels were able to clear  the beach on the rising tide,  and travel under their own  Dowet. Another boat led them  to Alert Bay.

The teachers are the same as last year  ���Miss New, Miss Stevens, Miss  Drummond and lyiiss Wagner,  with Mr. Smith and Mr. True-  man.  Due to the increased number  of public school pupils, the  High School has been moved  down to the old High School  building. Years ago this building was Gibson's only school,  but when the present school  was built it became the High  School. Enlarging the public  school to hold the high school,  the old building became the  woodworking shop and science  lab, and due to the decrease in  pupils during the war was rarely used. Now once again it is  to be the High School, with the  improvements of running water  and light.  SELMA PARK  G.

The  hostesses were Mrs. A. Cawley  and Mrs. Mowatt.  The room was tastefully decorated with beautiful flowers,  and illuminated with- candles.  A three-tier cake held center  place on the table, Decorations  were by Mr. Mowatt, who deserves much praise for his excellent work.  Miss Clayton, whose-wedding  to Mr. Maurice Hemstreet takes  place Sunday at St. Hilda's  Anglican Church, received her  many beautiful gifts amidst a  setting of massed gladioli, asters and sweet peas.

The rabbit has accepted    her    housemate,     and  amiably assists in the care  of  the   family,   taking   the  swing  shift while Pussy goes hunting.  FAMILIES LEAVE  AFTER SUMMER  HALF MOON BAY���The Labor  Day storm left no doubt that  summer is over, and the exodus  of vacationists with families of  school age is complete. However, now that there are so  many new property owners in  the Bay, quite a number are  staying through September to  enjoy an extra taste of freedom.

C.  PAGE 3  by Rubrey Boyd  SYNOPSIS:   On the  old   side-  wheeler  "George E. Starr," on  its way to the Yukon gold fields  in the first rush of  '97, Speed  Malone, experienced gold-camp  follower     and    gambler,    and  young Ed Maitland, on his first  trip, trying to recoup   his lost  family   fortune,   struck   up   a  strange friendship. Maitland left  Speed playing  Solo  with-two  other men and wandered  forward, to be sharply recalled by  the report of a pistol and the  news that his partner had been  shot and had gone overboard.  Ed jumped in after him, without   second   thought.  But  the  cold waters got him, and in the  end it was Speed who did the  the rescuing, holding Ed's head  above the water until they were  taken aboard a little boat b^ a  French fisherman from Seattle.  Maitland,    knowing    the    sea,  took cfege pf the _ttle boat;  when they persuaded Frenchy  to take them to Skagway. After  a hard journey,  they reached  rSkagway  where   they  find   a  ship    unloading   miners    and  horses.  Now go on with the story  Speed merely nodded when  told of the failure of his quest.  "What happened at Stien-  er's" Maitland asked.  It seemed that Frenchy and  the Jew had formed a partnership, to start a hauling business  from Skagway with the horses  and boat for capital.  With a glance at the clouds  Speed suggested that it was  going to rain, and he would do  a "sketch round" for some blankets while his partner was drying out. *  For an hour or so after he'd  gone, Maitland sat pondering  over the fire. From this abstraction he was roused by a  slight crunching sound in the  gravel, and glanced up almost  absently at the'shape of a horse,  limned in fiery lines against,  the dark. An upward glow from  the fire lighted a woman's face  which he seemed to remember.  Then a low, musical laugh gave  body to the vision.  He stood up, still half-dreaming, as she pulled her horse under the shadow of the wharf.  Her dark eyes masked with a  yajgrant humor some caprice he  could not fathom. When she  seated herself on a fallen wharf  timber, leaving a space beside  her in wordless invitation, he  , obeyed, without knowing that  he did so.  "Meet Lady Luck," she said  and to his complete stupefaction, turned his head toward her  and kissed him lightly on the  mouth. "You have a funny, serious, wondering look I like,"  she explained. "Of tracing something that keeps drifting away.  Luck's been passing you, too,  so I've decided to give you a  break���if you want it. Do you?"  she murmured, with a melting  fall in her voice that drained  his blood. Her lips hovered  close to his; her hair almost  brushed his face with a tingling  lure that took his breath.  Appalled at what he had al-  I  "A Place i Like To Buy From!"

ASK FOR CURRENT SAILING SCHEDULE  ���  Operating  BOWEN ISLAND INN  SECHELTINN  Foot of Carrall Street  most done, he held her crushed  fingers between his hands un-  he could win back some decree  of sense. "I think it would be  safer to be "unlucky" he pleaded.  She looked at him with an  oddly shadowed, reflective  smile, as if the scruple intrigued  her, or he had brushed some  chord of memory. "Suppose I  were to offer you and your  partner an outfit, a job and:a  big stake in the Yukon, would  you trust your luck?'*  "Whether I would or not," he  said, "my partner wouldn't."  '"He doesn't know what the  stake is," Rose countered.  "You're going North to look for  gold. I can put it in your way  in one throw. There's a fool in  camp who's due to lose a gold  mine���one that isn't his to lose.  I can't tell you any more just  now, except that the game is  worth the risk. You're running  some risks anyway as drifters  in a camp where you've made  an enemy of the range boss."  He could make little of that,  except to wonder if Fallon was  involved in the mysterious gold  secret she spoke of. And, while  their hands tangled, she drew  a ring from one of hers and  slipped it mischievously on the  tip of his little finger.  At that moment a thud on  the wharf above them froze  them both. A dark figure loomed with a bulky menace in the  dusk. Maitland thought of Fallon, but a flare from the fire  revealed an apparition much  more disturbing to him just  then. Speed?s apparent size Was  due to a roll of blankets on his  shoulder.  The outlaw came down the  sand and dropped his burden  near the fire, still regading the  girl. After a moment he walked  over to the horse and held the  stirrup for her, with a gesture  that was polite but implacable.  She waited before mounting,  returning his stare with a look  of interest. "Lady," he said  pointing north, "up there is All-  Alaska and the Yukon Territory. If that ain't a big enough  huntin' range for you and me  and my partner to keep untangled in, it's too damned bad.  But when I ask you to get the  hell out of our camp, I mean  stav, out."  Her laugh was a ripple of  spontaneous music. She mounted easily, and looking back at  Maitland, touched her fingers  to her lips. The horse's, hooves  ground softly in the sand and  she vanished.  Speed threw a fresh log on  the fire, and after kicking it  into flame, he drew from his  pocket a new bag of Durham,  rolled a cigarette and lit it with  a brand from the fire.  "Seems like this man Garnet  likes to gamble," he observed;  at last. "What he don't know  about callin' a pair of dueces  gives us the ponchos and the  smokes."  Maitland scarcely heard him.  He half-opened his hand to look  at RoseVring and shut it again  quickly, as if he were holding  a witch's bond.  It was not until thev turned  in that Speed alluded to the  subject that troubled. "From  where I set." the Westerner ob-  lserved musinglv, "which is  ]ookin' at the sky���this man  Fallon listens like four good  aces to^ beat, if not five. His  havin' traces of catamount and  curlv wolf in his pedigree I  don't question. But he's got  something else that makes a  bunch of hard-rock, hard-mouth  miners   answer   his   jerk  line.  A quick hand, a cool head, and  enough ornery guts to swing  a twenty-four horse span of  Nevada mules through the gates  of Hell, if him and Satan had  a feud. Offhand, I'd reckon that  crosshY that man in any game  was a kind of hair-line play.  "What's his sequence with  the woman I don't just get.  Maybe none, you think. But it  looks to me like a young buck,  say from Boston, would kind of  regret havin' his grave dug for  him this side of the summit,  through not suspectin' when  gettih' curious about a woman  means flirtin' with the muzzles  of a pair of forty-fours. Which  is the bore of the guns that  start talkin' when you ramble  into Fallon's private game and  make it three-handed."  Maitland wakened shivering  in half-darkness. The gulf was  smudged   in   a  firie  rain   that  steamed dismally over the riffled sands left bare by the ebb  tide. Speed's blankets were  rolled up, and a pile of driftwood lay ready for their breakfast fire. Annoyed at himself  for having slept while his partner was hunting a job, Ed  washed in a tide pool, and went  up to look for him.  He learned that Steiner had  offered to sell Garnet his pin-  tos. Garnet promptly closed  with him at the price of four  hundred dollars for the team,  and engaged the two partners  to haul for him at the wages  Speed had first named.  This swift adjustment had  all the effect of a miracle to  Maitland, but the Westerner  accepted it as a simple caprice  of the goddess who presides  over mining camps. Nor was  Steiner visibly troubled by the  change in his plans.  "Gold is where you find it,  ain't it? If they put it in my  hands, I don't need a shovel, do  I? Let the saps dig for it."  "Reckon that in't so foolish  neither," Speed concurred.  The pack train had been tugging, cursing, halting and sliding for hours in a disjointed  snake-line up the graveled  river canyon, through a drizzling rain that soaked the lashings and the shoulder straps,  cut flesh to the raw, changed  gravel to mud, and with the  churn of hundreds of hooves  among the slippery wrack of  cotton-woods, made footing almost   impossible.  By the order of the trail, prospectors moved their outfits in  relays, Indian file, travelling as  far uptrail  as they could between midnight and one in the  afternoon, there to cache their  packs and return, during the remaining hours, for other loads.  Garnet's   outfit   was an odd  one, unencumbered by   mining  tools or instruments, or by any  special   equipment   that might  give a clue to his purpose in the  North.   It   was rather like the  outfit a rich man might have  chosen for a long camping tour,  though this was not a journey  which anyone  would be likely  to   undertake  for  pleasure   or  health.'  Two   game   rifles   and  rods, however, showed that he  hoped   for   some diversion by  the way.  At last a ring of axes, pans  and voices floated up from a  mountain hollow through the  rain. The trail dinned down toward a camp, which was presently announced by the aroma  of coffee and of wet pine burning.  Tethering the horses under  ?ome dripping boughs, where  ���f^ needles spread a carpet free  from mud. Speed unmade the  packs. "BpIIv, ut> to the bar for  Komp close harmony. cow  hands," he sang ou cheerily.  "We've hit the camp of Liars-  ville."  O^rppf    ptnod   hnwprl   under  his load and asked in a spent   L  voice how far they had come.  Speed swallowed his chuckles. The distance was said to be  five miles. "Maybe," he added  as an encouragement, "they  call it 'Liarsville' in mem'ry of  whoever said it was five miles."  Garnet showed so little interest in continuing his travels  after lunch that they left him  in camp to rest, and brought up  another load on the night trail  from Skagway, fgor tlie moral  effect of getting the outfit well  started.  Garnet was in his blankets  when they returned. "I'm going to sleep boys," he said, next  morning. "If you feel so enger-  getic, have a look at the trail  above here. I've been hearing  some bad rumours about it."  His misgivings did not weigh  on their minds at first. They set  out on this excursion in the  light-hearted mood conferred  by a scrubbing, a shave, a good  breakfast and morninjg sunlight.  Avoiding the camp, they  crossed a river bridge, and from  there, by a steep and broken  track which the pack animals  of \ earlier comers had scarred  out, climbed into some mountain ravines that began to reek  with a mephitic odor of death.  The shambles became ghastly  as they climbed.  In the dips of the so-called  "trail," a 'series of quagmires  had been enlarged to small mud  lakes by the wear of successive  hooves arou&id the rim. The  swollen carcasses of dead  horses lay floating or half- bedded in muskegs and sloughs.  On sheer mountain sides the  trail dwindled in places to a  cattle track, and its hazards to  burdened horses and men were  grimly proved by the relics  that lay scattered in the canyon  troughs.  Sme travellers who appeared  to have lost their horses, were  struggling   to ��� hand-haul their  packs   through   a   wallow   not  more than a mile above Lairs-  ville.   It  was   all  the   progress  they  had been  able   to   make  since  morning.  Others,   incredibly  plastered  with  mud,   and  bearing the wan stamp   of defeat in their  facs, were  back-  trailing   toward   camp.    These  were  trail veterans   who  took  ordinary hardship with a smile.  Plainly, one look at it would  be enough for  Garnet.  As they stood considering the  dismal prospect, they were  joined by a man whom they  recognised through disguising  mud smears as the old-time  prospector, Brent.  "Pretty, ain't it," Brent com- ,  mented,   spitting tobacco juice  into the slough.  ,t "It would look a heap  better," said Speed, thoughtfully, "if the camp got together  and graded a trail. A few days  Work would corduroy these  muskegs."  "Just what I told 'em," Brent  nodded.  "Whose against it?"  "Fallon's outfit. He claims we  can't reach Bennett before the  freeze-up if we stop to make  a trail. It's tough on the boys  who're short of horses. The  way he sees it, it's their hard  luck. A stampede is a stampede,  says the trail boss."  " Fallon's got guts but I don't  seem   to   like   'em,   someway,":  said Speed.

IT IS an entirely reasonable supposition that  our readers are human; that toeing so, we  thought you'd like to read what Gypsy.Jackiin  had to say about our paper in lier column,  Talk of the Town, published in the Vancouver  Sun last Thursday���  "There's something comfortably folksy  about a small-scale newspaper that beats the  pig-time operators with a cracker-barrel human interest angle every time.  *'We're struck with this thought through  a perusal of The Coast News a month-old  publication received this week from Alice  Amelia French at Sechelt This paper, which  boasts eight pages with pictures, fiction serial,  classified and editorial sections, is published  every Wednesday at Half Moon Bay and serves  "a progressive and growing area on B. C.'s  sunny southern coast." Inter-coastalpoint cooperation is the byword that keeps every page  brimming with newsy tidbits about goings-on  from Port Mellon to Irvine's Landing, thanks  to the busy correspondents."  It's a very nice way of telling us that we  are achieving our goal. The best thing of "all,  though, is the salute to our correspondents,  who have been doing a first-class* job.  THE VOTERS' LIST  Disturbing rumors are going around about  various producers of many sorts of goods,  which have been off the market for some time,  and which the government will permit to be  made in the near future, who argue that they,  cannot make goods to be sold at the present  price levels.  They point out that all their labor and materials are higher than when these goods were  previously made, and they say that we cannot hope to get production going again without an increase in prices.  The government has done a good job of  controlling prices during the war but the job  of selling this to the public has been too well  done. The general impression has been created  that, because of this, therefore we can have the  present price levels forever.  The plain fact is that, in some important  lines, this is not the case. If price control is going to be kept in effect indefinitely, and wages  are not going to come down, then we shall have  less production, and that means less employ?,  ment and less goods for the rest of us to buy.  This is a most unpleasant situation. It will  not be solved by everyone standing pat, the  government saying that everything is all right,  and the producers and their workers saying  costs must not come down, and consumers saying that prices must not go up. It must be discussed openly and generally, for it is necessary for us to get peacetime production going  if we are to avoid further shortages of goods  and general unemployment.  SHORTAGE OF GOODS  THE ELECTION facing British Columbians  next October 25th is perhaps the most important in this Province's checkered history.  Though at the time of writing few candidates  have been nominated and party platforms  have yet to be presented, the fundamental issue is quite clear. Voters must choose between  the admittedly efficient . Coalition government  and its program, or the CCF and its plan of  Socialism which is designed, apparently, to  make the province, like Saskatchewan, a keystone in an over-all policy for the whole Dominion. In any case, the outcome must be decisive, with a majority of* the electors partic^-  ipating.  The voters'  list closes next Monday, Sep-  The green of patient woods crept softly down  When man departed, hiding strand on strand  The scattered refuse of his restless hand;  The dark pond water at the dam's curved  crown  Join for the plunge by linking fingers brown  And form below a gaily dancing band;  Then in the flowering foam across the sand  Their mirth is stilled beneath the pines' grave  frown. .       . .   ���  Above, the velvet waters parting free  A leaping trout who scatters jewels jar  In rainbow gleams whose, colors flame and  cease;  And then the ripples moving quietly  as quiet.

It is unfortunate that those responsible for the elecion machinery have not  seen fit to undertake a complete enumeration  for a new list, for the old one is hopelessly  out of date and much confusion and bitterness  is certain to result. With the tremendous *jhift  in population in the war years since the last  election, nothing else could be expected.  Any person who did not vote in Mackenzie  Riding  in   1941   is   not on the list, nor is  anyone who moved here or came of age since '  that time. If you are not on the list YOU CANNOT VOTE.  All parties have Elections Commissioners  in each community who are empowered to  place names on the list. If unable to contact  one of these, voters should go to the Registrar  of Voters in the Government Building at Powell River. It is each person's responsibility to  see that he is on the list, and in view of the  tremendous issues now at stake it is imperative that he take immediate action.  Of World Opinion  LOVE YE  ANOTHER9  In Frederic Prokosch's novel,  "Age of Thunder," an Old peasant women says: "My mother  said to me and my grandmother  before her, and it is still true,  we_.must learn to love one another or die, and that is the  only lesson, and there is no  other, and that is all there is."  With words and with treaties,  with debates and resolutions  and speeches and editorials, we  tend to lose our hold on a truth  as hard and durable as diamonds . . . we swathe it in polysyllabic phrases, "re-interpret"  it to fit the modern world, lose  sight of it entirely by packing  it away in the cedar chest of  our good intentions ...  The continuing miracle of the  axiom is that it is so brilliantly  practical. Wherever it. truly  works, it levels barriers and  overcomes .obstacles like magic.  The multilateral agreements,  the tripartite alliances, the seal-  ed-signed-and-witnessed /documents on extra-heavy parchment paper, all bristling with  official insignia from top to  bottom, are flimsy assurances  compared to what the old peasant woman spoke of.

"I feel that we have completed the programme we set out  for ourselves and now require  a mandate from the people to  proceed with a development  policy which involves the expenditure of large sums of public funds and which are far  reaching in their effect. So wide  in scope are these plans that I  believe it only right that the  people should exercise their  democratic privilege of voicing  their opinion, not only upon the  record of the present administration but in endorsing its  policy for the future. At a later  date I propose to enumerate in  detail what that policy is but  at the present time I can say  that it envisions a period of  prosperity for this Province and  a period in which the Government will endeavour, if re-elected, to . raise our standards to  higher levels," the Premier declared.       [  The announcement of the  general provincial election was  made after His Honour the  Lieutenant-Governor, on the  advise of the Executive Coun-  cil, dissolved parliament following the .Cabinet meeting held  on Friday. Since the Order was  signed, the Provincial Secretary's Department immediately  put into motion the necessary  legal writs and notices for the  calling of the general election.  The voters' list will be closed  on .'September 17 and nomination day will be on October 4.  The Government has given  most serious consideration to  the question of the voters' list,  Premier Hart asserted, and the  difficulties confronting the taking of a new enumeration have  been carefully studied. In view  of the. circumstances, it has  been determined that the best  method of bringing the voters'  list up to date is to establish  convenient offices in the cities  and various voting districts  throughout the Province, so  that the citizens will, without  any great: effort, be able to register on the voters' list. Deputy  Registers of Voters will be  placed in charge of each office  and the Government, through  the press and the radio, will  appeal to the people to take the  necessary action to. enable them  to  exercise  their   franchise on  election day.
