This, in those days, was probably  only fair and reasonable. But- times are  changing, as is our economic horizon.  \ We are growing up and will have to pay  some of the penalties. ..  , \ ^Merchants w;shing.\to, dabble in various  Commodities such as'a 5 and 10 cent store,  nd paying one general license, should hardly  be 'allowed to1 snipe at other "merchants <with  jseven licenses, each of these seven costing the  same as the general.  Each merchant  should   be  charged   one  license for every outlet,  provicled  his stock  I of any given outlet'is less thian $25-in whole-  ^sale value, when he should then be allowed  )to sell that convenience free.'  We suggest, since the village is growing  }and in need of money that $10 or $15 should ,  be charged for the; first five major  outlets  |haiidled;-by-.-any-\(6n'ei'-.'merchaht and $5 for each  succeeding or: secondary line of merchandize.  Exeptiohs to this rule >vill spring up and  (they should be" allowed.

News that "the car ferry franchise-has been approved, by the' cabinet, "may be premature but quite, true."  Story that the "car ferry had been approved by the cabinet  'has been released'by radio station^ C.K.W.X. only. "We got the  story from our Victoria correspondent", a yancouver member  of the news staff tofd this paper.  Perturbed by  the following  We do not  think  it  is  fair  to  saddle  av  person, getting* as little money as our village  clerk  is  getting,  with  the  responsibilily   of  categorizing a general store and another store  - selling three lines.

We would draw the Commission's attention to a survey now being made* in the lower  - Fraser vfclley- villages and 'towtas whereby  a complete summary or synopsis of the licensing bylaws of all-the areas wilLbe: made up  and publicised.

It will also, by virtue of this "general"  .    license, be a very unfair taxation on the majority of merchants. ���#^.'. v.'-  Do away with this general, blanket license  and charge each  merchant for  selling  eachx  category. If the merchant finds that his outlet  -.'"Twill, not  bear  a license it ^yill  probably  be  found it is because already another merchant  'is making  his  living  from  selling  just that  article or line.  We charge peddlers $50 to soil their wares  in this village. We do this to protect ourselves!  The same thing applies to a general license.  We have to protect ourselves against our own  mistake - at least until JUl�� but certainly nofi  .after that date.

Last obstacle in the path of a Gdbsdns car ferry  has been removed with approval from private bills committee of tfeBl^  Only-routine house approval has to be gained now in  order to make law the 25 year exclusive franchise.  Already approval has been given by the caucus and  the cabinet, the private bills approval was a foregone conclusion bu�� was part of the proceedure.  The expropriation clause has been deleted from the  original application.  y It is believed the last stamp of approval Will given to  day in the House. This will clear the way for the'company  to immediately begin installation of equipment and wharf ing  facilities at the Horseshoe Bay area end.  Work is now gojbig apace on the 48 car ferry now  docked in North Vancouver. The'Coast News      Thursday April 12 1951  In His True  m mm  '��� ��� MAIN STUMBLING block on the right of way for ear ferry  service between Horseshoe Bay and Powell River has been overcome and mainly due to the untiring, and unstinting efforts of  B.M. Maclntyre," MLA.  Let no. man  believe the  legislative, green light was given  without much hard work on the part of many, some for it and  some against it, but standing above them all, handling the pawns  of negotiation with the sure touch of a veteran chess player was  %our member of the assembly.  Strong opposition sprang up-from the west shore. It seems  that-West Vancouver has trouble operating its own transport  services and has made a fizzle out of its.fire brigade efforts not  to mention the mess they are in with the hospital question, yet  they find much time to tell everyone else'how to operate their  business.  We hope this is water under the bridge now. But the opposition born of that municipality's faculty of not minding its3"own  affairs could easily have frightened a lesser man - it frightened*  the majority of the 12 man private bills committee.  A man of smaller stature* would have failed miserably when  he faced the Coalition caucus, charged with selling the whole  idea to the strongest group in the political horizon. There were  men'there who were against the ear ferry, there were men there  who wanted changes in the wording, there were also members  who disliked the 25. year and the expropriation clause. There  were-none who disliked the ear ferry proponent and therein, lies  our member's strongest point.  Cast back and remember the opportunity given Batt to stand  on the floor of the h>ouse and, with sword' waving high and  sparks flying from him in righteous indignation, denounce the  government for its foolishness in the*hospital stand. Then takest  that same man, douse the sparks, melt his sword and send him,  in supplication, to. the caucus and we would have had the Maclii- .-  goune for another few years.

Steele  and your..qwn caustic remarks  in regard to the appointment  for the position a; Postmaster  at   Sechelt  Post Office.  The Sechelf Distivc:  Liberal  Association,   has   never   interfered   politically   or   otherwise  in any appointment that comes  under  the   jurKdicti- n   of   the  Civil  Service Commission-,., and  has    UiOt  cat    any ; time    endeavoured   to   brJng   political  pressure to-bear on the appointment   of   a.  specific   person   to  fill the position as Postmaster  at Sechelt.  The facts in this case are as  follows;   When   the   previous  Postmaster  at  Sechelt  due  to  severe - illness'   in   the.  fall   of  1950  was 'unable  to  carry  on  his duties as Postmaster completing  the  terms  set   by  the  Postal Authorities for the date  of his retirement, that siiuatu n  was  brought to  the  attention  of  the   proper   authorities, by  our organization with a request  that immediate steps be taken  through the Civil Service Commission to remedy ihe situation  without undue delay.  At a later date we were advised  that  Mr  W.  McKissock  was  an  applicant for the  position. Finding that he   possessed   all   the' ri'eees-sary   qualifications     i.e.     the     required  length    of   residence    in    the  area, being a veteran with overseas    service,    possessing    the.  proper     educational    require-  ���-������men'.*' -as   well   as  .being   an  upright, well thought of mem-   -:  ber of the' community, we wer*  privil eg-.ad   and   pleased   a[s   a  responsible community body to  recommend his name for consideration   by   the   Examining  Committee.   We  asked  for  no  ipecial   * privileges     f or  . Mr  lilelvissock   as   we   a,rb   qu'ite  content  to  leave the final selection in the proper hands of  the  Civil  Service  Commission.  Let it be clearly understood  that neither "Aries" nor any  other  individual is authorized  to    speak   on   behalf   of   the  Sechelt   District. Liberal   Association. .Mr Steele must look  to you as Edit r and your vCol-  umnist for redress for any embarrassment and inconvenience  caused   him   by   .your   publications  of  unfounded  rumors.  I  can  understand  that  any  person  in  anger,  whether the  cause is real or imaginary, may*���  make statements he later may  ���regret. I will therefore, expect  that  Mr  Steele  will, apologise  for his unfortunate  choice  of  language    in    describing    the  Membership    Of   the    Sechelt  District   Liberal   Association.  rnjfg,,   the  Members,  like -the  ItaKer'Ship,   of   every,   other  -worthy local Organization, devote    our   time   and    efforts  through   political   channels   to  'obiham the just share of Gov-  *���ment improvements for our  District. Thus improvements to ���'  roads,   wharfs,    electrification  health and well-  etc.   can   in   a  be credited to  efforts  exerted  note   of   agreement   with , Mr  Steele   on   at   least   one   point,  ^ Jiis   apparent-   admiration   for  oi-.r Member of Parliament, Mr"  James   Sinclair.   It   is   organizations such as ours that has  produced men of that calibre.  Thanking you Mr Editor for  the space allotted to this reply  and assuring you that I shall  hi   all   times   be   glad   to   cooperate  in   giving your  paper  p,ny   factual   informajt-ion   you  may   'desire    concerning    the  activities   of   the   Sechelt   District   "Liberal    Assocoation,    I  remain,  Yours very truly,.  .

West  Vancouver; ; ^4  umn stating I had taken over-  the duties as Postmaster at  Sechelt, of course, this being  untrue, has. been very enibar^  rassing aiid ��� unjust to the  writer.  ; It has been my intention to  apply for this position for the  past year, but not until our  past worthy Postmaster had  definitely, submitted his resignation. My application was  forwarded to the District  Post Office Inspector at Vancouver, B.C. In turn advice  was received advising position  would be advertised for applications by. the. Civil Service  Commission and this would be.  an open competition to all applicants, also statingg preference given to applicants with  residential qualifications, overseas veterans, educational and  general suitability. Of course  including other qualifications.  It was not until November  2 1950 did the Liberal Association of Sechelt know of my  interest in this direction and it  was only through pressure  being put to bear on Dr McColL  re health re-action of the Postmaster's Assistant and a request that something be done  to relieve this burden. At that  time Dr McColl telephoned,the  Sechelt Liberal Association  President and immediately an  executive meeting was held  whereby the secretary was instructed to write a letter to  our 'federal member, as this  apparantly seemed to be an  urgent matter at tha& time,  endorsing my. name which I  accepted as a v$ry high compliment.  Mr Steele's editorial reads  as though the/writer is not  eligible to apply for such a  position therefor^ I wish to  declare that I too am a veteran  with overseas service as well  as being a member, in good  standing, 6f the.; Canadian  Legion, Branch 140, Sechelt.  Mr Steele's : reference to  several liber.al members'* quoting he hadn't a ^chance, in my  opinion, has shown they are  not aware as to just what appointments a " member of parliament may have any influence.  I noticed Mr Steele was approached by several people to  file an application and wish to  stress there' wal: no .outside  instiggator'on my behalf and  I do feel I am an ordinary  citizen in the Sechelt Community with equal rights and  am always open to fair competition. ���.-������������ ���     '���  .  I resented very much the  article under "Aries" column  and immediately contacted the  columnist as well as having the  editor call, but neither would  bear tlie burden of such an  error. - Then Mr Steeds  lengthy article high lighting  this^same untrue statement in  the following issue of, The  Coast News has forced my  hfitid to reply which, I can  assure all readers, . has \ not  been a pleasant duty, especially  to a fellow veteran, and do  hope Mr Stele will realize I am  just another applicant.

Sechelt Board of Trade endorsed a reconsideration of the  stand taken by Mr Morton in  view of pending arrangements.  Gibsons Village Commission  also urged Mr Morton and tlie  ���Department of Transport in  Ottawa to reconsider their  decision. The reeomendation  pointed out that Gibsons- wharf  was the only means of supplying the Peninsula -following  withdrawal of Gulf Lines  service.

Or. he  keeps the money  as a  reserve fund against  emergencies. It aH~adds up to the recognition that farming heeds  capital, too.

No. 1, to serve residents  on Upper Sechelt and Shaw  Roads.  The  Department has  authorized an. extension,of .55 mile  and    retrace     along    Upper  Sechelt  Road^   as   outlined  on  the   enclosed   sketch,   thereby  .provinding 13 householders on  Upper Sechelt Road withi direct  service,  and  8   dfhers  established on Shaw Road with indirect service.

The ; minister indicated he  was interested in any plan  which would help the area and  intimated he. understood the  need for a subsidy.  By authority of the department it, is believed Mr  Maclntyre will now try to find  ah answer to the knotty prop-  lem which arose following withdrawal of Union Steamship  services to Howe Sound  Islands.
