Pump House Trees  Must Be Moved  GIBSONS. Trees around the  pumphouse came in for discussion when Village Commissioners took exception to the  suggestion that, plans' for a  . fence around the property  should be delayed for some  time.  Water Commissioner James  Hall pointed out that fence  construction would have to be  delayed while trees, now felled,  were removed. <  ..��� Last years water commissioner Mrs E. Nestman objected  to leaving the area open to  roving animals. But gave way  when assured the trees would  have to be removed before, the  fence could economically be  built.

Reiuctlantly. commissioners accepted the resignation following Mr Graham's information that the "wages offered are a  iiig-Mr Graham's information that the "wages offered are a  personal insult. I coud make more money baby sitting."  Commissioners had recently  held a commi.tee meeting in  which they outlined the wages  and various remunerations  whiet could amount to $1200  per. year with opportunity to  make more by means of hourly  wages.  ��� Said Commissioner Harley-  Anderson. "I am somewhat  surprized at this, (the letter of  resignation) I thought we were  offering Mr Graham exactly  what he asked for".  Commission Chairman Mrs E  Nestman was the only dissenting vote when it came to the  final showdown.  "T . regret, very much, the  manner in which this whole  thing has been taken.

Pioneer in Paper  ....HISTORY is yesterday's happenings, several years from now.  That sums up what we have just read in the first issue of  Eagle newspaper, which has landed in our office by the good  will of Robert Telford.  The editor- -publisher wrote a long story as his lead editorial and said. "With the greatest optimism and the thrill of  adventure, we launch the EAGLET FROM ITS NEST and trust  that soon it may be, worthy of the title, EAGLE the 'King of  ��� things that pierce the eye of the noonday sun, and whirl in limitless flights of achievement.  Without appearing to' be superior, we suggest few papers  have ever had a "fancier" launching. .  The publisher little thought of posterity as he failed to  date the issue, and completely forgot that his name should appear somewhere in the six page Gestetner printed paper.  /Stan Trueman must have been a newcomer then, as. one  story deals with the new teacher who is a "whizzer" at base'  ball, while "Spiv'.' Inglis sent the first tree hurtling on the  newly donated, two lot playing field donated by Mrs L. DougalL  The paper also told of a Mr Byfield who ha!d packed his  glass and pipes and was going to build a greenhouse in Powell  River. "  Something that rang a faint, bell of recollection is the pi oft  in a later issue which deals with asking for copy or stories from  .various organizations. The Editor points out that -all news must  be in by Wednesday in order for it to get into the next issue of  the Eagle which was typed by Mrs. R. MacDonald.  It told about the reception for Harry Winn's dad and how  the elder Mr Winn "handed the wedding cake 'around personally."  One point that caused a chuckle was the following.  Mr Dougherty, provincial highway and bridge constructor  is among us and is staying with Miss Jacks. Many of the 13  bridges that one has to traverse from here to Sechelt should  merit his attention, especially having in view-the coming ferry.  This, on the September 13, 1931. .  It is now 1951 and we are still talking about the same ferry.  At Roberts Creek a new room had been added to the present  one room which "will give the children a place in which to'play .  during the wet weather". ���     ,  Jack Dunn had returned from. somewhere < and was just  cr'arin' to -go.    ��� - .    . '  Mrs R.H. Brooks of Halfmoon Bay had many tame chip--  munks which would scamper up and down, and around a wheel  specially made for them.  Jack Mayrie was doing some relieving work in the post  office on BoWen Island.  '   C.P. Smith of Gibsons donated goal posts to the school and  then helpedrput ��th��m up. .   ?  Resuls of-the hair competition was'announced "and it was  won by Mary W.Gr., Bell. A foot competition was to follow.'���  ; Mrs Helen McCall was advertising photography with 24  hour service, while F.W. Downes of Roberts Creek advertised  "Lightning Service." The Wilson Creek Garage was run then,  as now, by Roger Green.  In one of the later issues, clarification was given to a  question about cooking and meals in one of the road caraps at  Halfmoon Bay. The Eagle scratched a- few eyes over that one.  Someone ^iSe.ntolle;:.edit6>.:a;���^^^ufe;,'. for;; $1.0:000 land���? then;;  forgot to put has or her name on the paper. That started a full  column of discussion.   ' ���;,���;.  In one issue, .a full   quarter   column is   given   over to   the.:  names of everyone who   lived   at   Wilson  Creek.   The   editor  suggested that others should know "that  quite  a lot  of fine  people are living in these seemingly small places".  A funnyr page for children wTas written by Grey-Wp.lf while  an.'editorial signed:" Ye Editor" wound up 'With the  words,  "boost for. improvements in places and people and for truth,,  goodness and beauty". - 7 /' '.  :  The Cooperative  store,  advertised,  "All  sorts  and  most  everything-t That slipuld. have covered the subject.  Earl McLennan had'hurt-himself' in the gravel pit and was  under the Docor for treatment. Well....

These are the attributes ���  that Canada-and the Peninsula heed.  It behooves some of us to stir up and resurect that feeling  of drive and initiative that was shown in the old days. There is  more opportunity now for straight, constructive thinking than  there ever was hen.  It is too bad, men of Mr Darby's thinking, have to now lay  low.

For six years he watched proceedings of City fathers with  keen interest. Believing he  could serve citizens in Ward  6'to their advantage, Mr Winn  offered himself for election to  the City Council- in 1910 but  failed by 40 votes to achieve  his desire.  In 1912 he moved with his  'familv to Gibsons Landing.  The same year he was elected  secretary to the Farmers Institute a position he held 'for ten  years.

Certainly not the Sechelt, Peninsula, once word of that she-  mozzle gets around?  To get   hack   to   the   feriy  company idea of wanting  your  busses. It might just be    conceivable  that   the   ferry  company,- being   brand,   spanking  new in this area have 311st a  limited notion of what the potential tourist trade here will  be. It might just be that the  ferry  company,   and   here   we  have  no  kick,   would  like   to  make  a' guarateed* sum every  day  while  it  was  finding  its  feet. That could be its reason  for wanting to have you and  .your  busses  and   the    Powell  River     company     busses    on  board. \  During . the winter months,  and this is questionable, the  busses would help the ferry  company over the slack period..  Someone has to pay for  your busses going, over on  those ferries. They are worth  several  -hundned    dollars     a  month to you, just to sit  on  the   ferry.   We   don't   expert  you to  pay  for them  on  the  ferry.  We  expect to  do that,'  Hoav  this is   going   to   cut  down  on  the  cost of crossing:  the ferry is beyond my simple-  I use  that word with regret-  little mind. You are  going to  charge   the   same   as   Pacific  Stages from Horseshoe Bay to  Vancouver.    So    there   is    no  saving  for  us  there.  Even   if  Public Utilities would 'a.llow it,  we know you would not go on  a   price, cutting  spree  against  the   Ivor    Neil,    Dal    Grauer  interests.  You say the salving would  be in women and children staying oh the bus and not having  to transfer on to the .ferry and  then off again. In other words  they could sit comforta-bly in  their seats in the bus and look  out at nothing and keep the  kids sitting tight in the bus  while the whole romantic ship  and all its childish mysteries  beckon.   No   1 'm  sorry  Cecil.  :&. ���;  THE PROVINCE AND  THE MUNICIPALITIES  ���"   ��� ��� ��� ' v  The financial relationship of. the Province with its municipalities is one with which the government  must constantly concern itself. It pan confidently he said that these relationships are now in a  most satisfactory stptte, certainly from the municipal standpoint, British Columbia has been  regarded as one of the most generous of provinces in its treatment of local sgbvernmentsj and  certainly the extent of our present assistance serves to emphasize that attitude.  Were it not for municipal needs, provincial requirements for funds would be substantially reduced,  and this should be kept in mind constantly when .considering the extensive budget of the Provincial  Government.  1 The following statement) outlines the aid granted to municipal units in past years, and the estimate  for the current year. This assistance takes two forms, direct grants, which in the case of educational  grants/are paid direct to school boards on account of the municipal share, and indirect aid; which'  is an assumption of costs by the Province ef what is a municipal statutory responsibility.

I can't buy that story. Never  the less, your transfer-of baggage is a big item.

If you could guarantee, Cecil, ;  that enough cars would be left  sitting on the wharf to make  it economically possible for the  ferry company to make a  special trip or put on another  crew on another ship, then  yonr idea would  be  good.  You know what will happen.  There  will  be   eight   or  nine'  cars left and it won't be worth  the company's time and effort .  to make another trip.

In 1902 there was one  family at the beaich at Roberts  Creek, "and five up the hill.  Now the proportion is probably  just about reversed, and the  trend appears to continue. And  while it is certainly right that  the people up the hill should  have roads, people down the  hill also need roads and pay  taxes. ' -t.  Of- course, we down here,  have vast' sums spent on  wharves, (You may fire when  ready, Sinclair). But a good  deal of, that money* is in the  same category as that spent  oh the first Federal venture  on-wharves-in this area, which  apparently, set the pattern for  government expenditure. I  refer, of course, to the classic  example, the wharf at Smith's  Landing, built on ���'-'���hardwood  piling imported from Australia,  but   never   connected   to > the  #.*!ui��r|^  ^*i*d��**  shore, and never with a road.  Mr Wright is nearly correct  in saying that the old cow  trails were made over into  roads; that for years taxpayers  them; but he says "now they  are pretty good'V Pretty good  cow trails? I agree. 'Pretty  money have' been spent on  good Roads? (Nerts). Actually,  those old cow trails folowed  from one system of branch  logging roads to another, and  so the roa,d builders followed  the general route. But the  result is to be seen on the  present "highway" with Z���  kinks at most of the bridges,  and many S���turns the rest ol\  the way. I 'cannot see that  such a location is necessari'y  the desirable route for a permanent main highway. The  cos�� of re-locating and rebuilding would go some way  toward Imilding the lower  road which is advocated in  some  quarters.  Certainly, a neai-the-beach  route, such as has been srrz'��:es-  ted would be more -attractive  to tourists; not that���I would  stress that point. I think road*  should be built for the use and  convenience of the people  living and working in the  country. Anyway, our, roads  are likely to be used only by  those so unfortunate as to be  living here, and forced by  dire necessity to travel over  them. Any tourist who got.  trapped in them once would  fight shy forever after, and  most certainly warn his  friends. ' ;  Yours, without hope  Robert Burns.

Ranging from the minimum  of a $100 to a maximum $2,000  credit, the rainre of repayments'  is also as wide. A person can  take from six to twenty  months in which to repay.  "Carrying charges," said Mr  ."Walker, "are light. If costs  one half of one per cent on  the total credit arranged.  "We had quite a job getting   this   arrangement,"   the  Sechelt Bui'di-.-g Supplies partner said. "But i': will certainly  bev.-orth.it to the little fellow  ���who   cannot   arrange   to   have.,  credit through -us in  the ordinary run of business.  We can  only carry a very few persons  and then only for a short term.  This new system will give the  man who wishes to repair his  home, an opportunity to do so  without having to saddle himself with too large a load".  Thursday February 1 1951  Pender Harbour  BY SARAL.  PENDER HARBOUR. Just as  we. were bragging about our  mild winter, and admiring the  vioietp in bloom and snow-  .drops pe\ep!ing through, yes,  down came the snow, and icy  winds did blow, to remind us  it is still January.  A lot of blasting and an  extremely muddy road around  Madeira" Park is indication  that A.E. Ritchey is progess-  ing with his school clearing.  Speaking of mud, the parents  on Francis Peninsula would  certainly like to have something done about the trail the  kids must use to get to school.  Tt is practically a bog in places  right new.

WHAT IS THE COST OF A B. OF M.  LOAN AT SIX PER CENT .A- YEAR?  Well ,the answer's pretty surprising. If you borrow $100 from  the Bank of Montreal, and repay.it in twelve monthly instalments, the interest comes to just'27 cents a month. You pay  interest only on what you still owe.'
