Pender Harbour  Wharfinger Honored  Marking 35 years' public service as wharfinger in Pender  Harbor 250 residents of the Harbor and Jervis inlet gathered  in Irvine's hall January 16 to  honor William (Bill) Matier  who had reached his 71st birthday.  The affair took the form  of a concert and community sing-song. W. Harvey Heard,  Mrs. Bernice Fisher and Leonard Wray, formed the committee, A. R. Dingman acted as  master of ceremonies.  The committee presented to  Matier, by Mrs. Chas. Wray, an  engraved gold watch, ah order  for a radio and a wallet and  substantial purse to which the  residents of the Harbor, the  Union Steamship Company and  the logging companies of Jervis  inlet contributed.  "I understand tnat another  survey has been made of the  six mile Port Mellon road, but  with at least a $200,000 estimate,  (ridiculously high) for the six  mile road,. I don't think the  government is going to take  much  interest."  "They'll get an earfull on  road conditions though," he  promised.  "Great dissatisfaction exists  about the school .estimates in  the lower half of the peninsula,  but I am already exchanging  correspondence on this problem,  and I understand that the Gibson's Landing school board has  also protested," answered Mr.  Gargrave when queried regarding the school conditions.  "I understand that this area  will become a consolidated,  school district if the Cameron  Report is implemented, and we  should clear up some difficulties  under   the   new   arrangement,"  he expects to be in Sechelt arid  Gibson's Landing on Friday and  Saturday of this week, having;  visited other parts of the riding  before going to Victoria for the  forthcoming sessions.  News Summary  IRVINES LANDING  POST OFFICE  A new post office for Pender  Harbour at Irvines Landing opposite the new Forestry office  and adjacent to Pieper's General Store, is reported well under way. Present facilities, reports postmaster J. Potts, are  overtaxed.  WATER LINE  Families at Sinclair Bay are  co-operating in constructing a  new water-line from Hotel Lake  to the bay.  NEW WHARF  Halfmoon Bay is excitedly  watching the redecking and  renovating of the wharf.    ,  A short delay resulted when  storms washed away timbers  and piling* but materials have  been salvaged and work is reported   progressing   smoothly.  SECHELT CENTRE  An active community centre  committee is stirring considerable interest in Sechelt, and  preliminary reports are expected soon for publication.  SECHELT RED CROSS  Mrs. William Allen, for Sechelt, attended the regional convention in North Vancouver recently with other Red Cross representatives from this peninsula.

Membership increased from 45 to 82, share capital increased from  $1280 to $6500 and loans made to members increased from  $1025 to $7,850.  Here are the figures  at  December 31, 194$:  Share capital subscribed  and paid up ���  Share capital withdrawn  (since inception)  Total loans made  to members ���  Cash on hand-..- $1,757  Victory bonds-- 1,700  Building fund _*. 61  Numbers of loans made  Membership    ._���.���_.  Annual meeting of the union  will be held February 18 to hear  reports of the directors and officers, and to elect officers for  1946. Mmbers will be asked to  declare a' dividend to themselves out of the prof it of operation of their Credit Union business for the past year.  i Good entertainment will also  be on the program, reports the  committee. ' ' " -  COST OF LOANS  One member in the market  for a loan from the Credit Union  pointed out that although the  interest charged was higher  than that charged by a bank  (but considerably lower than  the rate charged by loan com-  $6,508  150  7,850  3,518  44  82  panies) he would save money  by getting the loan in his own  Credit Union. As he put it: "By  the time you take a trip to Vancouver to see a banker about a  loan it will take not less than  three days. The cost of the trip  alone is more than the interest you would save on the  loan. "Besides," he added, "The  bank may not want to give the  loan."  The union would like to clarify some points about borrowing money in a Credit Union.  * First:   All loans are insured.  Second; All loans over $100  require the signature of two cosigners on the note.  Third: Should one die or become totally disabled before the  loan was repaid, the estate  would owe nothing to the  Squamish Credit Union, neither  would the fellow who signed on  the dotted line with you. In  such a case they are protected  by the same insurance policy.  The cost of the loan insurance,  as well as the savings insurance, is paid out of the earnings  of the Credit Union.  -^^^^XJ^lt^^^i^im^ *- carnp  centred the table.  Miss Kate Collins and B. W.  Sinclair, well-known* novelists,  both of whom had known Bill  for more than thirty years,  spoke in a congratulatory vein.  With Leonard. Hambly at the  piano, community singing made  an attractive part of the evening's enjoyment. Others contributing to the program were  Miss Jean Murdoch, accompanied by'Mrs. Sydney Inch, Miss  Alma Sundquist and Mr. and  Mrs. Roy Dusenbury. Mr. Ding-  man sang one verse of Killarney,  popular to every Irishman, and  two additional verses written  for the occasion.  Congratulatory telegrams  were read from Hon. W. L. MacKenzie King, Premier John  Hart, St. Patrick and Rev. Dr.  Geo. C. F. Pringle.  United P.T.A. to  Sponsor T.B. Clinic  SECHELf-^-Owing to the illness of the president, Mrs. Osborne,  Mrs.  Brooker  took  the  1 chair at the monthly meeting of  the Sechelt United P.T.A.  Mrs. Prince, having declined  the position of social convenor,  Mrs. Nicholson was elected in  her place.  It was decided that the P.T.A.  would sponsor the T.B. clinic  coming to the district in the  near future. Mrs. Jackson, Mrs.  Arnold and Mrs. Nicholson were  chosen as a committee in charge  of preparation for the clinic.  A sum of $25 was donated to  the school to buy sports equipment and to help the students  in improving the school ground.  A discussion followed on some  of the things the P.T.A. intended doing in the future.  The meeting was adjourned  and refreshments were served  by Mrs. Nicholson, Mrs. Gray  and Mrs. Crucil Sr.  l_apll^l^^  hoine from overseas.  New Firm Differs  Modern Service  Ben Lang, owner and manager of the new Lang's Drug  Store at Gibson's Landing is filling a long felt need in that district and throughout the whole  peninsula, with his purchase of  the Wyngart Grocery store and  conversion to its present form  of a modern drug store service  in this area.  Serving six years with the  Owl Drug Company stores in  Vancouver, and four years with  a dispensary service catering to  St. Vincent's hospital, Mr. Lang  comes, to the Gibson's Landing  district with considerable experience behind him and though  a Vancouver born and bred product, he has a great love for the  Sechelt Peninsula, having spent  almost every summer in or  around Grantham's Landing.  Graduating from University  Hill High school his side-line  activities included editorship of  the school paper, and president  of the student's council.  Married  with  a  lovely  two-  year-old   daughter,   Mrs.   Lang  assists her husband in the new  store,  and  works with him  ijfr*'  their mutual ambition to introduce a servic,e equal of any in  Vancouver.  A modernizing process is under way and Mr. Lang .  hopes soon to announce a firrhj  completely modern in building  and    appearance    and    service  comparable  to anything  to  be  found in the larger centres.  He is the son of Dr. and Mrs.  W. H. Lang, retired, at Grantham's Landing. Dr. Lang practised for a period of 35 years.  ��& PAGE 2  THE COAST NEWS, Halfmoon Bay, B. C.

Wednesday, January 30, 1946  letters to the   Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow  We announce with relief that the production situation  in the publisher's offices is rapidly returning to a normal  situation and the Coast News will return to a weekly basis  on Friday, Feb. 15. There will be no paper next week, but  by missing this next issue your production staff is able to  insure for you the bigger and better paper we have promised for so long, and planned for and waited for through one  of the most hectic years in this world's history.  We also announce with the change-over that the paper  will be published on Fridays instead of Wednesdays as in  the past. This new schedule will permit correspondents to  get late material in on Tuesday's boat service rather than  Saturday.  The new production schedule will give you a weekend  paper, and allow our staff to give better service.  We take this opportunity to apologize for much material that has had to be side-tracked in the past few weeks.  We thank our subscribers and correspondents for their  unbelievable patience and support and see with them the  hopes of a better paper coming to light.  Strength in Union  There is no attempt to disguise our pleasure at reporting the progress of three credit. unions this week within  Coast News coverage territory. Our pleasure is not so much  that they are credit unions, as it is that they are representative groups of public organization on this peninsula,  existing for benefit of the members of organization and  community.  In recent issues we have described progress and formation of boards of trade and improvement associations. It  is our belief that in groups of this nature lies the insurance of future progress in this area.  We recommend to members of the several communities in this area the whole-hearted support and building of  the various enterprises in your neighborhood. Individualism is a fine thing, but strength is in union. In the coming  days of effort, much work will have to* be done, for which  much strength will be needed. Let us unite now that we  may give our work when we are needed.  One parting thought to all our enthusiasts is this. Your  group is what you are. Your presence in it adds to it that  much more personality though you may never hold an office  or work on a committee.  Indeed we maysay that because some members of these  gToups let themselves be led as sheep, and sleep on the job  when there is committee work to be done, that the character of the group is often so markedly affected. No dictator can last against freedom of opinion well supported in  united opposition, and it is indeed poor character for any  group that, allows any belligerent member to take over the  running of the group and become dictator of all activities.  What is probably worse than this last step, however,  is the process of any opposition to the dictator gradually  leaving the group theoretically in protest, actually because  the fight has left, or has been knocked out of the opposing  member.  Let every member of every community group now take  stock of himself, his group and his community. If he doesn't  agree with policy or management, instead of running from  trouble why not see what can be done to improve the situation.  Lest this be taken as a call for general revolution,  however, ;et us also remember that what is done for the  best of ail, is done for ourselves. Work, for change, for  better conditions and for the community.  ���KS  DAVIS   BAY  MRS.  GEO.

Sir: The provincial legislature will shortly be meeting in  Victoria and I would be glad  to have any suggestions dealing  with local matters from organizations or individuals.  Correspondence to the above  address or provincial legislature,  Victoria, will receive immediate attention.  H. GARGRAVE, M.L.A.  By Mrs. Geo. Cormack  "I would like to live till I'm  90." Why, we queried-.- "To see  the development that will have  taken  place."  Well, the other day we watched two men, as they picked up a  chain saw with engine attached  and passed rapidly along a huge  log, slicing off stove lengths as  neatly as a housewife slices a  cake. That started reminiscencing. First, the ax. Go up to a  tree and pit your strength with  the ax. Swing and sweat and  ache, but there was no other  way and even in those days,  fires had to be" kindled if bread  was to be eaten. Then the bucksaw and cross-cut saw. What a  marvel of invention! Soon a 12-  horse sweep power for a threshing machine came into use, and  this was quickly adopted for  sawing wood. Six horses were  used, six men worked around  the saw and a seventh man  drove the horses. Then one day  there came- rolling into the yard  a portable steam-engine, hauled  by horses of course. This again  was a handover from the next  will not want to change.  The national employment service of the department of labor  is the clearing house where job  opportunities and available labor meet.

To: Employers of Canada  For the first time in over  three years there is sufficient  labor available to meet all reasonable demands. It is not anticipated that this situation will  continue for long, as increased  industrial and construction programs will be operating in the  spring.  The present situation offers  an opportunity to employers.  Those who have been in lower  labor priorities throughout the  war can now obtain additional  help. Those who can immediately expand their working  force can now obtain adequate  help. Present work schedules  should be expanded to include  an additional shift where this is  warranted. The labor is available now and may not be there  later on.  A large number of veterans  have been demobilized and  more are leaving the services  daily. These men nad women  are the finest available material  from which to build up your  step in threshing grain. The  owner of the outfit would haul  some wood with him with which  to get up steam, and then one  pile of wood sawn, it gradually  disappeared to feed the fire, that  made the steam, that worked the  saw, that cut more wood.  Now came put-putting its way  along, the gasoline engine. This  was brought to a point of efficiency and economy though  every stick had to be lifted up  for sawing.  But here, right under our  noses, last week, two men walked up to a tree. They carried in  their hands their equipment.  The tree was on a hillside. A  saw cut was made part way  through, the saw carefully re-,  moved. The tree bowed to its  master and lay full length on  the steep hillside. Right, there,  without'* fuss, it was sawn in  lengths. The next time we looked put, other trees were no more,  but. the hillside and the foot  of   the   hill   were   dotted   with  available wood waiting for the  *  ax. ' -   ; .  Now, all we need is a little  gadget with its own power, that  will run around and split and  pile the wood. So that's what  she meant when she said, "I  would like to live till I'm  ninety."  From the Bible  "For God so loved the-world '  that He gave His only begotten.[  Son,   that  whosoever  believeth  in Him should not perish, but  have everlasting life." ^  "For  God  sent  not  His  Son  into the world to condemn the !  world,    but    that    the*  world  through Him might be -saved.":\\  John 3: 16; 17.  %i  4 "The "Jewish people ^r. should^  know that it is in Palestine byfj  right and not of sufferance."���  Churchill.  ��� �����*'  Other Opinions  i�������1_  Mr. Donald Gordon's New Year message can  scarcely be regarded as fortunate. He stated,  quite correctly, that, despite our great war  expenditures, the Canadian people are today  provided with a better standard of living than  ever before, although there are, of course, exceptions, such as our inability to obtain all the  housing we should like, all the motor cars  which we could use, and even enough sugar to  satisfy us. Unfortunately, Mr. Gordon then  went on to create the Impression that this was  the result of price control. It was, of course,  the result of production. The production was  created by tremendous government spending  for war purposes, on a wasteful scale made  price control necessary. It is as sensible to  credit price control with-.. increasing production as it is to allege that traffic lights increase  the volume of traffic.  The present situation is that, having discovered that this country is quite capable of producing enough to fight a war, and still give  its people a fairly good standard of living, we  should go on with production on this scale,  but now entirely of goods which would mean  an improvement in our standard of living.  That means that all the manpower which has  been put into war activities of all types should  now be put into peace activities; that all that  we need to do is to get people to understand  that industry and thrift will make a nation  rich.  Price control, useful when we needed to direct the national production into certain channels, is now a nuisance. It is like a system  of traffic lights, when the traffic is insufficient  to make them necessary. It slows down production. It has the further disadvantage of  deceiving the public, who are being led ; to  believe that, in some miraculous way, the government can guarantee that the huge expenditures for war purposes will not be reflected  in any increase in price levels. This is danger  ously untrue,.  Prices have to rise. If they are allowed to  rise a little, so that productive, operations are  not hampered, this most fortunate of nations  may well be able to avoid the tremendous  rise in prices which is likely to occur in other  countries. If normal price rise is prevented  any longer, we may yet have the inflationary  panic which Mr.. Gordon thinks he is preventing. .���:[*'���  Grand schemes for great improvements and  a total neglect of minor betterments is a standard government policy in Canada. We never  repair or maintain a public building. We let  them fall down, and then replace them with  colossal, expensive new structures. For a  quarter of a century the very valuable St.  Lawrence Canal system, which is vitally important to the country, has been neglected, and  left in an actually dangerous condition, while  endless investigations have been made of absurd plans for building a 30-foot waterway  which no one needs from the lakes to the  ocean.���-The News Letter.

A  THE WORK OF THE  First of three announcements designed to inform the  public as to the services rendered by this  important provincial organization.  The Provincial Board of Health has two major functions, (1), the provision of  technical and consultative public health services not capable of development on  an economic basis by a local area; and (2), the progressive development, maintenance and expansion of adequate local health services to meet the needs of the  people.  TECHNICAL AND CONSULTATIVE SERVICES  The Provincial Beard of Health fulfills its responsibility in this field through  the provision of a number of specialized services made available under the direct  supervision of administrative units known as Divisions. These Divisions include  Environmental Sanitation, Vital Statistics, Public Health Laboratory services,  Tuberculosis services, Venereal Disease services and a Division of Public Health  Education which will be developed during 1946. An outline of the services made  available through these Divisions and some of the accomplishments are listed below.  DIVISION OF ENVIRONMENTAL SANITATION  Environmental sanitation includes all matters pertaining to and influencing  the health of the people due to the environment in which they live. The services  provided in this field include^ among others, supervision and advice on the following:  1. Public and private water supplies.  2. Adequate sewage treatment and sewage disposal.  3. The provision of safe milk supplies.  4. Health problems in the production,  processing  and handling of all  food  supplies.  5. Sanitation and proper food handling methods  in restaurants  and eating  establishments. ,  6.'Certain public'health phases of Ibuilding^ including lighting, heating, ventilation, etc.   ' ���' *  7. Canneries, lumber, mining and other camps where men are employed.  The service is advisory and consultative in most instances to aid the local  health authorities in coping with such problems as arise in the field outlined.  This Division has been responsible for a very marked improvement in the  quality of milk and water supplies, through aiding in the planning and development of pasteurization plants and the installation of chlorination equipment  respectively.. An improvement in sanitation of canneries on the Coast and in hop  fields and many lumber and mining camps has also been brought about.  DIVISION OF VITAL STATISTICS  The services provided through this Division deal with the registration, tabulation, analysis and distribution of information of births, deaths and marriages as  well as the collection and analysis of all data pertaining to public health activities  throughout the province. Certificates are provided on request re births, deaths  and marriages. This Division is also responsible for the administration of a number  of Acts of the Legislature having a bearing on statistics. It has also worked in  close co-operation with the Armed Forces and in conjunction with Federal services  respecting Family Allowances..  The Division of Vital Statistics through statistical analysis has assisted materially both the Provincial Board of Health and local health services to recognize  public health problems to plan programs to meet these problems and assisted in  evaluating the effectiveness of health policies in controlling or reducing the  problems.  DIVISION OF LABORATORIES  The provincial Board of Health through this Division provides highly technical and skilled public health laboratory service for all parts of the province. All  preventive and treatment public health services depend on the laboratory for aid  in the diagnosis and control of all communicable diseases, including tuberculosis  and venereal disease.  Six branch public health laboratories are maintained in various strategic  centres of the province in order to make this service readily available to the  various local health services and the physicians. In addition, this Division operates  a large central laboratory located in Vancouver. In 1944 these seven public health  laboratories examined more than 250,000 specimens.  The Division of Laboratories also distributes biological products for the immunization of persons against communicable disease as well as certain products  for the treatment of certain communicable diseases. These in turn are used by  local Health Departments, physicians and hospitals. During 1944 biological products  to the value of approximately $25,000.00 were distributed free of charge to physicians and other authorized persons throughout the province.  The type of public health laboratory service provided in British Columbia is  of a very high standard. It is supplied free of charge to the people through their  Health Departments, physicians, hospitals and clinics, and in this way helps to  reduce the cost of the diagnosis, treatment and control of communicable disease.

HALF MOON BAY  Price $3000  Speed   Malone,   hardened  gambler, and Ed Maitland, "son  of   a    seafaring  New    England  family,   were    partners    in  the  Yukon gold rush of '97.   They  met on the trip north in a crowd  that included Frenchy, the fisherman, Lucky Rose, the beautiful  girl  who  took  a  fancy   to  Maitland; Fallon, leader of the  miners, who resented Rose's interest in Maitland; Brent, old-  time   prospector;   Garnet,   who  gave   Maitland   and   Speed   his  outfit  when he  quit  the  trail,  and Pete and his drunken partner,  Owens who was  drowned  after a brawl.   Pete turned out  to be a girl in disguise.   Speed  killed   a   man   at   Skagway���a  cheat manager of a shell game���  and months later was arrested  and put in jail for his murder.  He got out, but while he waited  for Lefty, who offered to help  him, to get back the mail he had  been carrying for the Mounties  at   Bennett���where   Drew   and  Cathcart    were    stationed ��� he  was  recaptured  by  his  enemy  Fallon.   But Maitland and Pete  rescued   him    as   Fallon   was  about to lynch him.  They made  for   their   camp   at  Bennett���  Pete   and   Maitland   with   the  horses, by one route, Speed by  another.  Led by the lead dog,  Rusty, they found Dalton's deserted cabin.  The second morning,  Dalton staggered in mortally wounded���and died before  be  could  tell  Pete  where  the  claim was. NOW GO ON WITH  THE STORY.  The request brought Maitland  out of a trance. "Don't do it,  "Speed," he said quickly. "Let  . the Law straighten this out.' Investigations will clear us of  what they suspect."  "You've got delusions about  the Law, Bud.. I can't argue  with you. I ain't gott no words  but a low-down gambler's  lingo, and it don't just fit with  what I'm tryin' to show. But  I've got a hunch, and I'm ask-  in' you now, if ever you trusted  a pardner's word, to take mine  when I say you ain't fixed to  deal with the, Law. Later maybe���not now."  Maitland was moved by the  appeal, but not by its logic. His  eyes were wet when he spoke.  "We've reached that junction,  Speed, you once talked of. God  knows I'll never have a truer  partner. You know that if this  charge were made against you.  alone, and there was no other  way out than the one you say,  I'd travel any road to help you.  But to escape by using force  against the police isn't just a  crime tjjat would outlaw us. for  life; it's a needless crime. We'd  be giving them the real case  against us that they haven't  got. That isn't all. We couldn't  take Pete over that route, and  I can't leave her to face this  alone."   ,  Pete would have spoken, but  Speed's   brooding  look   at  her  checked  the .words  you figure it?"  "I don't know," said Pete,  unhappily. "I feel that Bud's  right though when he says you'd  give the Law a case."  "You're an ornery young pair  of cubs," Speed muttered . . '.  "Reckon you can't help it, corn-  in' from where you do. Now  it's the same junction, turned  backwards, and I can be just  as damned ornery."  He pressed back the gun hammers, tensely watched by the  police officer who had followed  his argument with a fateful inr  terest. Speed's eyes, however,  strayed to a long pendent spruce  cone on a tree near the ledge.  Without aiming, he fired. The  cone fell, clipped from the  branch, and before it reached  the snow, four quick bullets had  broken it to fragments. The remaining shells blazed at these  ��� pieces as they spun down the  slope.  "'The outlaw waited, listening,  till the last echo died out of the  canyon. Slowly then, he looked  at the guns, and rubbed a spot  from one of the clean blue barrels. They were still smoking  when he handed them to the  police officer.  "Well, go ahead and read your  warrent about our supposed  shootin' of this man," said  Speed, indicating Dalton's body.  "We have a warrant for your  arrest," said the mounty, "but  not for killing that man. Since  you've surrendered, I want you  to understand that we don't  railroad men,, or even arrest  them on ' merely -; presumptive/  charges. We had a brush with  this fugitive^���" nodding toward  Dalton,   "down  the  creek.   It's  more than   possible    he    was-  wounded by one of our guns.  The inquest will show. My warrant is to arrest you and your  partner for the murder of a Siwash on Lake Lebarge, on or  about the twentieth of last November. The native's body was  disposed of through a hole in  the ice, and has been recovered  since the thaw."  Speed's eyes sought those of  his partner and Pete, who looked dumbfounded.  "Your own warrant?" he demanded.  "Mine would be sufficient.  This one happens to be signed  by Cathcart of the Mounted  Police."  . "Well, I'm a son of a���!"  Speed mumbled to the hollow  chasm with a note of doom.  At the same moment, a clatter  in the /jackpine gulch swung  their attention to that; quarter.  In these echoing surprises they  had completely forgotten Rusty.  Now a slinking' wolfish- head .  nosed round the cliff and cowered back at sight of the fallen  body. From behind the cliff,  the strident, excited, harshly  familiar voice of Corporal Cathcart twanged like an untuned  banjo:     "Get;  this    malamute,  "How   do     Burke.    "It's   the    "wolf"    that  gave  us  the  blood  trail.   The  Siwash's lead dog!"  It did not take the Mounties  long to get things in shape for  the trip down to headquarters.  Pete was delegated to serve  breakfast while the officers disposed of Dalton's body in a  crude grave near the mountain  hideout. At last, they started,  Speed, closely guarded, gave  them no cause for concern. He  was meeting the law unafraid.  "And so, gentlemen of the  Jury, tne Crown will prove that  the defendants had a motive for  the murder.of this Siwash, and  did in fact kill him."  The Crown Prosecutor, Wade,  cast a heavy-lidded, mordant  stare at the jury and sat down.  By contrast, Garnet, at an adjoining table nearer the prisoner's dock looked like an urbane  -courtier.  The arrival of one of the first  upriver steamers, some weeks  before, had provided the accused men with their distinguished counsel. Garnet's, mission in the North had proved to  be a political one. Learning,  when he landed, of the charge  against the two partners, he had  offered to undertake their defense.  Maitland looked older for the  two months of prison life that  had elapsed since his arrest.  The shadowed look in his eyes,  however, was not wholly due to  the ordeal ahead of him; it came  from one that was past.  A weather-beaten man he had  never seen was being sworn in.  Garnet had resumed his seat.  Fallon's bulky figure slouched  at ease toward the center of the  row of witnesses. Nearer, Maitland's eyes rested on Pete, with  the emotion which the sight of  a loved and loyal friend brings  to a man in trouble. A wave  ���of tenderness brimmed his heart.  Pete wore a summery frock of  light blue; her golden hair was  longer than he remembered.it,  and arranged in a more feminine Jashioh. It was his first  glimpse of a her in girl's attire,  and she was altogether lovely.  Police records of the finding  of the native's body that spring  in   the   breaking   ice   of   Lake  Lebarge,   had   established   the .  fact of murder. The Siwash had.  been killed by a .44 bullet which  struck   him  in   the   back.   His.  corpse  had   been   disposed   of  through an air hole in the ice,  and had lain  in this  concealment  through  the  winter.   Its  having   floated   finally   to   the  surface was  due  to  the  rising  warm   currents  from  the  lake  ���bed.  Wade'sy first witness: was a  trader from the old post at Ogil-  vie on the Yukon. The trader  told a very queer story, which  went back into earlier Yukon  days, and rehearsed the tale  which the accused men -had already heard from Drew.  While some of this testimony  was open to objections, Garnet  passed the witness without  cross-exmanining, and Wade  called a seasoned-looking officer of the Mounted Police.  Wade here produced the furs  and mukluks Dalton had worn.  He compared them with those  taken from the body of the murdered Indian to prove, by an  identical working of the* bead  ornaments, that they had been  fashioned by the same native  hand.  Garnet had passed this evidence without question. Wade  called Corporal Cathcart to the  stand. .' ��� -  Cathcart explained that the  tracks tangled in an odd way  through the timber that sheltered the camp, and were difficult to read. He told of finding  a pool of blackening snow crystals near the head of the lake,  covered but showing through  in a dark shadow. He had then  sought out the defendents and  questioned them.  "They said they had met no  Siwash, arid showed an unwillingness to say anything more.  When I asked them about the  blood dust, they explained it as  the blood of a caribou they had t  shot and produced a fresh hide  to  prove   it.    Their  carbine,   a*  .44  calibre  gun,  had not been \  cleaned,   and   still   showed   a ]  powder mark."  The witness told of his visit k  to the cabin in the wane of the  blizzard, while Speed was be- '��]  ing sent to Skagway. Before he \  reached the door,     Siwash* dog \\  had slunk out of his way around  the cabin wallj and he caught  only a storm-whitened glimpse  of  it.    The discovery  that  the ^  defendants had a malmutejydog I  was, of course, startling, and a  fact of great importance.  Maitland, when asked where it came,[J  from, claimed to haye found it  astray; ~hbr- Ton��''arte^rHis^^p'aH-J  ner  shot the  caribou  on Lake;'  Lebarge. J  "In the meantime, the Si- )|  wash's body was found in the Jj  breaking ice of Lake Lebarge, \|  establishing the fact of murder, f  "To establish our case against jj  the accused men, it remained to I  be proved that they * actually j  used the dog to trace its camp ]|  or origin, and that that camp |  was hide-out of an unknown M  white prospector with a gold]!  secret.   As was proved." ||  Garnet, after a brief address |j  to the jury as to the circumstan- M  tial nature of the evidence, call- ||  ed the first, and so far as was .1  known, the only witness for the %  defense. 1  Pete was unmistakably a very ;j  attractive girl; to this crowd of J|  hard-living men she was something  more  rare   and  gracious. J  than the words convey, or than,  may' be  imagined  by any  but  men who have lived in frontier  mining camps.  ���$  ��� ���..   .

MEET YOUR FRIENDS  AT  Wakefield Inn  SPECIAL BUS  Every Saturday Night  Leaves Gibson's ��� 6:30 p.m.  Leaves Wakefield���-11:00 p.m.  ^ by Gabrielle Read  Gibson's  Landing,   B.C.  Chop, chop, chop, chop, the  rhythm went on and on. For  months this industrious man  had been chopping his household wood. First had come the  sawing, back an4 forth through  the tough wood of the fir tree;  then the slabbing of the round  blocks before they could be  hauled into the yard. Gradually  the pile increased. The sap-  wood was piled separately with  the bark to dry out thoroughly  before being used.  The man straightened up and  with a weary effort felt his aching back as he surveyed, with  pride, the mounting wood-pile.  But he wasn't alone in his interest for the beedy little eyes  of the squirrel in a nearby tree  looked on in wonder at the industry of man. The hearth wood  was piled neatly inside the shed,  sheltered from the stormy blasts  that sweep over the coast at this  time of the year.  Just two more sticks now and  a well deserved rest could be  taken. But, ah fate! With one  terrible slide the pile of wood,  tottered, and. fell over, spreading across the yard. Weeks of  hard work lay scattered like  match sticks.  The man looked on. One, two,  three, and so on up to ten. What  control that man had! Only a  meek little word escaped, then  with a weary shrug he started  to pile it up again, making sure  this time that the wood-pile  would stay where it was put.  ROBERTS CREEK  A. N.

THE WORK OF THE  Provincial Board of Health  Second of three announcements designed to inform the  public as to the services rendered by this  important provincial organization.  m  DIVISION OF TUBERCULOSIS CONTROL  This Division is responsible for the^ supervision and control of tuberculosis on  the provincial level. Technical and consultative advice is available to all physicians  and hospitals throughout the province. The services provided by this Division may  be briefly outlined as follows:  1. Four Travelling Diagnostic Clinics covering the entire province.  2. Two Mobile Survey Clinics in buses which have been used to X-ray those  engaged in war and other industries. This service is now being extended  to other community groups as rapidly as possible.  3. A stationary survey Clinic in the Vancouver area and three stationary diagnostic and treatment clinics located at Tranquille, Vancouver and Victoria.  4. A temporary hospital of seventy additional beds for tuberculosis patients  pending construction of a modern tuberculosis hospital of 500 beds.  5. A consultative advisory service to local Health Departments, physicians,  local hospitals and other professional groups.  "     6. Specialized public health nursing, social service, occupational and vocational  therapy services as well as certain phases of rehabilitation following treatment for tuberculosis.  These services are only fully effective with the closest co-operation of local  health services to take advantage of and apply these facilities in local areas throughout the province. This involves arrangement for the X-ray examination of all  persons in the community, the finding of patients suffering from tuberculosis and  previously undiagnosed, the control of contacts as well as the supervision of tuberculosis patients in their homes and in the community.  Duringl945 more than 700 people per month have passed through the diagnostic  X-ray clinic in Vancouver. Since commencing operations in November, 1943,  116,374 persons have had the benefit of X-ray examination of their chests through  the services provided by the Mobile Survey Clinic. All mass X-ray survey facilities  are being concentrated in the Greater Vancouver area at the present time in order  to make available to as many people as possible the benefits of this service in this  section of the province.  DIVISION OF VENEREAL DISEASE CONTROL  The services made available by this Division in the interests of the health of  the people of the province correspond in many ways to those of the Division of  Tuberculosis Control, with the exception that there is no extensive hospitalization  program. Among others, these services include the following:  1. Diagnostic and treatment clinics are located in the larger centres of  population. .  2. Supervision, of and financial assistance to associated clinics operated by  local health services at strategic centres throughout the province, notably  Prince Rupert and the Peace River district.  3. Free drugs for the treatment of all cases of veneral disease provided to  s physicians, clinics, hospitals and local health services.  4. Consultative and advisory service, concerning treatment and all technical  phases of veneral disease control to local health departments, physicians,  hospitals, etc.  5. Specialized consultant service in social service and public health nursing  relative to venereal disease control.  6. A widespread public health education program on,the veneral disease program to all sections of the communities of the province.  The provision of drugs for treatment of venereal disease free of charge to  authorized persons throughout the province has assisted materially in providing  treatment at a lower cost. The program as carried on by this Division has been  of a very high standard and has been used as a guide in planning and developing  effective venereal disease control programs in other parts of Canada and in the  United States. Although splendid progress has been made much still remains to  be done including a more widespread education as to the threat that venereal disease  constitutes to the health of the people of British Columbia.
