The delegates who vote on questions put to the floor will, in a  sense, represent the twelve millions  of peoDle of the Dominion. The  delegation   which  will  vote  will  comprise all Liberal M.P.'s and  men and women who were Liberal  candidates of the last federal election. There will be 735 delegates  proper from the constituencies in  the nine provinces, and 735 alternates. The Senate will be represented by 62; provincial representatives v^ total 140; there will be  12 national and. provincial Liberal  association presidents. Representation of provincial Liberal associations will be impressive. There will  be 27 from women's associations;  27 from young Liberal associations;  51 from university Liberal clubs.  " Public and party interest,^ of  course, will center upon selection  of the man who will follow Rt.  Hon. W. L. Mackenzie King as  Leader of the Liberal Party and  as next Prime Minister of Canada.  That election will be an out-in-the-  open affair. Nominations will be  thrown open and there will be no  restriction as to the number of  people who may be proposed arid  seconded for the balloting.  The  ^baUoting itself-^  '?'tBe1^ifr,di^  will l be-^ accompanied by every  known device to insure that the  votes truly express the free will of  the delegates. The ballot forms,  ���were printed two weeks ago; and  upon: their arrival were stored in  a^ safety vault by a group of officials of the National Convention  Committee. Just before the balloting is due at the convention, these  ballots will be taken from the vault  ���again by several officials of the  Convention  Committee���and  THESE BALLOT .PAPERS, being printed for the National Liberal  Convention to be held in Ottawa, August 5-7, will decide who shall  succeed Rt. Hon. W. L. Mackenzie King as Leader of the Liberal  Party. The printing, collating and'stitching of these ballot papers  necessitated special measures to insure protection of the documents,  which later were transported to a safety vault in Ottawa, there to  remain until taken under guard to the floor of the Convention for  use by 1299 delegates.  transported under guard to the  Coliseum. There, under the eye of  officially appointed returning offi-  the voting delegates. After each  vote; the counting will be done also  under the eyes of scrutineers.  The Convention, the third which  the Liberal Party has held since  Confederation, will bring to Ottawa  more than 3,000 Party members.  At the Coliseum, where sessions  will take place, there will be ample  accommodation for the public in  addition to delegates.  The official programme follows:  August 4���Registration.

Mind Wandering  Brings Calamity  In Laundry  Editor of the- Coast News.  Dear Sir���Who says there is  no money to be made on a chicken ranch? I have just bought a  new Bendix de Luxe with our  profiteering. It is a zinc one  square with two handles, price  $24.25 delivered. I am keeping  the tag on it to show that it is  a boughten one���and not home  made.  I find it helps if you are doing  something, particularly washing  that, you don't like, to just let  your mind wander.  Well I started to wash, and giving  it  the   works  on  the  wash  fbqard. First the goverinment got  a going-over���then Stalin. Little  did I know that the two chairs  my tub was sitting on were parting company. Suddenly down  went the tub.   Did I have to do  , some quick sandbagging and rescue the cat and her three kittens who were feeding at the  time. I looked towards the door  the get my breath, and there was  a friend grinning fiendishly. I  had forgotten about him coming  Wharf Appropriation  Jumped to $100,000  JAMES Sinclair, M.P. for Vancouver North has been instrumental in obtaining a new appropriation of $100,000 in place of last  year's appropriation of $28,500,  ���for  the  renewal  of the  Roberts  to lunch.(bless the.pressure cooker).  "It's war or communism," says  he, "nuts says I? We're all mad,  mad, mad. We want everything  increased���pensions, wages, and  we don't want the taxes -raised.  We want to take something out  of the air and by gosh we have  got it���the atomic bomb. No won-,  der Mr. Sinclair wants to go engineering, but I hope fate decrees  otherwise.  The men finished the conversation outside. It drifted from politics to poultry, wire worms, and  red heads, I got curious about that  and learned - that red head is a  turkey's disease. As for war nobody wants it, and only some  want communism^ and that could  be handled by watching out f���i*  any peewee dictator that gets too  ambitious. Some people will do  anything for money. They say  we Scots once sold our King for  a groat (fourpence). We must  have been a bad lot.  Margaret Allan  Creek wharf.  With the completion of the  wharf the Roberts Creek Liberal  Association hope for an appropriation ot dredge out a small  boat harbour at the Creek mouth,  for the benefit of those who use  small boats. The latter project to  take place next year.  VON AUXILIARY  TO HOLD TEA  A garden tea at the of Mrs.  Jane Nickson, "Rexwood", West  Sechelt, will be held on August  4 under the auspices of Sechelt  West V.O.N, auxiliary. Mrs. Arnold, Mrs. Billingsley and Mrs.  Redman are on the committee.  We hope for fine sunny weather  on this day as Mrs. Nickson's  garden is usually so beautiful.  Mrs. Nickson was one of the first  settlers in the district. and her  garden reminds one so much of  an English garden. Mrs: W. K.  Berry is president of this group  and Mrs. Mary Redman is secretary.   (Weather  permitting).  %���  "���} L    iX.:. ,  o e VIH0X0IA  AHVasn iVIOMlAOHd Page Two  THE COAST NEWS, SECHELT- B. C.  by Jock Scott  IT LOQKS very much as if I am  going through life without ever  knowing   what   happens   in   the  mind of a millionaire.  At a meeting I attended earlier this week, there were three  millionaires present. They looked  unhappy, worried, and just generally miserable and I simply  can't understand it. Not for the  life of me.  If I had half as much of the  green stuff as any one of those  men I'd be somewhere following  the sun, on the beach at Acapulco  or on the teak deck of a launch,  wearing sandals, perhaps, or no  shoes at all or maybe insome.de,  luxe mountain cabin growing a  beard and spitting on the stove  lid or just whatever cockeyed  whim happened along.  NO PAIN HERE!  If I had worked as long and as  hard as any one of those men I%  wouldn't have been wearing a  stiff collar and being bored and  correct. Not on your life. I'd be  playing poker with five select  pals or listening to Mozart or  splashing my feet in a slow surf  somewhere with native music,  exposing ray white, millionaire's  paunch to the warm sun.  The nearest solution I've got to  this problem is to decide that urgency or just'plain lust which  makes men earn fortunes be- .  comes, somewhere along the line,  a need not for money alone, but  for power.  The half-dozen millionaires I v  met were fretful men who kept  -is strict of fice hpurs as, their junior clerks, obviously flirting with  anxiety neuroses and, in short,  seemed to be getting nothing  from success but stomach ulcers.  THE RIGHT  IDEA  It would not be idle escapism  for these men to drop everything,  get into a pair of old grey flannels and disappear, thumbing  their noses after them. But no.  They stay on, widening their  sphere of respect or influence or  fear while many poorer men are  discovering a log to sit on, corncob pipe in mouth, and the contentment of old age.  I heard once of a millionaire  who did get away. Gave up the  bulk of his fortune to charity.  But he had lost the gift or the desire for relaxation. He finally  started a new empire and was a I  millionaire all over again when  cirrhosis of the liver caught up  with him.  Maybe it's just that making  money has its own peculiar kind  of curse, destroying the part of  the mind that knows you can't  take it with you. This seems to  have been the case with the millionaires I have met, owning everything that money can buy, except epace of mind and happiness.  ABOUT THE WOMEN  And yet if the millionaires held  my speculative gaze, it was their  disappointed that the rainy weather has not Shown Pur coastJ at  its best. -However, we notice that  WEST   SECHELT Mrs>   Borden    (nee   Alma   Has-  .NEWS INCLUDED camp)   has  quite a  tan to  take  ,_r��n~�� Zisi! from the U-S-A- k back to Seattle when she leaves  Mrs. K..

Well, as promised, I want to  straighten out the story of Mike  and the Bear. This may also  serve as a warning to visitors to  keep their eyes peeled 'cause  there's bears in them thar  'ills.  It would appear that Mike had.  finished his fishing up at Mission  Creek and after walking about a  quarter of a mile downstream, de  cided to cross the creek���but  found it too deep to wade. However he did find a sloping log,  which���if successfully negotiated  ���would have Janded him safely  on the opposite bank. Proceeding,  until halfway up the log, Mike  saw the bushes wriggle and and  move in a most unnatural manner. But being a true sportsman  (or nature-boy as they are sometimes called) " he filing a stick  which he was carrying in the  direction of the disturbance. Nothing happened, cautiously he  crept on and on, then suddenly he stopped, froze in his tracks  for out walked a lean hungry  looking three hundred pounds of  bear. Well, the bear gave Mike  the once over. Mike stared back,  goose pimples came and went;  silence reigned, but both calmly  stood their ground. Mike looked  at the water and was undecided  whether or not to fling the fish  at the bear or swim or run for it.  The bear advanced, Mike retreated. Then for no identifiable reason in the world the battle was  over. The bear backed up a few  yards, turned, then stopped to  give Mike the last look, then left.  Mike straightened out his goose  pimples, recovered his equlibr-  ium, stuck out his chest and sal-  BRIGGS-STRATTON  IN BOA RDS  Evinrude  Outboards  of City   Prices  Also small boats and  equipment.

NESTMAN  BOARD   OF  TRADE  At a banquet held in Merry  Ern Cafe officers were elected  for the coming year. Cliff Gray is  president, Gordon MacPherson  vice-president, J. Drummond if  secretary-treasurer. Eight . other '  members were elected to the'  Council. The meeting was addressed by the .guest of honor,  Mi*. Fred Rose of the Vancouver  Board of Trade, who gave an illuminating talk on the work of  the Board in Vancouver. Their  years of labor on the mountain  freight rate up to date is one of  their main topics at nieetings today. He stressed the power the  Board had in many branches of  affairs, and urged members to  take active part in all municipal  and comunity affairs.  Grantham's regatta was also  discussed, nd co-operation of  Gibsons intimated.  NAUTICAL NOTES  Noticed part of the fleet of  boats that came up from Tacoma  to Vancouver visited us last week.  One of their boats grounded at  Soames' Point, and they tell me  it was a" boat made by Mr. Cox,  and sold to our American friends  It almost seemed as if the boat  came home to roost for a while,  but eventually it got off* under  its own steam and sailed for home  port.  Also on the subject of boats���  an elderly couple who have been  holidaying here from Vancouver  started home in their small boat,  almost got swamped outside. The  Lady Cecilia picked them up, let  down the winch, and packed the  folks and the boat home to Gibsons, where they set up camp again around the point. Don't know  if they have gone home yet, but  one of 'the * fishermen told me he  certainly would never take that  trip in such a frail craft. If true,  why do people continuously risk  their lives? The sea is nothing, to  be trifled with . . young or old,  seems they will not learn. Sure  hope those folks got home.  COUNCIL NOTES  At a council meeting the question of zoning was brought up and  will be gone into. Certainly a bylaw should be passed prohibiting  the building of one or more  shacks on one lot besides the permanent house.; There's too much  of that lately and no way of controlling it. Before the place ip  ruined entirely, it might not be  a bad idea.  INDUSTRIES  < We have a hew.''��� industry here  in the making1. To: escape heavy  freight costs Mr. Sotiros, of Gibsons, is ready to take orders for  cement foundation blocks, cement slabs, etc. for garden, paths.  He'll do many other cement work  jobs, so why not try him for the  next job?  PLANES .  We certainly are becoming air-  conscious here in Gibsons. Last  Sunday about six planes were in  with folks for Gibsons, and taking them out again. They were a  delightful sight to the eye, their  bright-painted bodies and wings  skimming over the water like giant birds. For myself, I don't  want any part of a plane, not the  slightest interest in ever going.  But for a speedy trip to Vancouver it sure can't be beaten.  THIS 'N THAT  Rev. C. H.

FOR THE grace of God that  bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, Teaching us  that, denying ungodliness and  worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in  this present world; looking for  that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God  and our Saviour Jesus Christ;  Who gave Himself for us, that  He might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto Himself  a peculiar people, zealous of good  works.  Not by works of righteousness  which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us by  the washing of regeneration anc^  renewing of the Holy Ghost;  which He shed on us abundantly  through Jesus Christ our Saviour;  that being justified by His grace,  we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.

Flood Emergency  Fund has now reached a total of  well over $2,000,000, and that the  administration expenses in connection with the campaign have  totalled only $190.  Great credit for this remarkable success must be given to the  media of public information,  which contributed so generously  in publicizing the need for the  fund and the progress of the  drive.  On behalf of the thousands of  flood victims who will have  cause to be appreciative, I thank  you for your splendid co-operation with the Vancouver office  of the B. C.
