Monday,  November 13, 1950 5c per copy, $2.00 per year, by mail  EDITORIAL  Attention  Mr Sinclair  THERE seems to be  a shortage  of help on the peninsula.  Louis Hansen, the man with  the transfer business, was recently telling me he cannot hire  men to cut firewood for resale.  "No one seems to want the job  of cutting it," he said. "And  when we do manage to find  someone willing to go into the  woods, he usually wants so much  it puts the resale cost out of this  world."  Talking about firewood reminds me of the time we used to  cut wood with an old six-foot  swayback Chinook, for $1.75 per  cord stacked on the roadside. We  even used to help load it onto  the go devils for that also.  Bobby Dashner just strolled in  with Ed Metcalfe.

A faint glimmer of light seems to be gradually seeping  into the dark remotes of Victoria in respect to transportation  for the coastal line.

Go to it.  ers are facing each other across  a $7000 water bylaw which Deputy Minister B. C. Bracewell  hinted was illegal. Gauntlet of  having to go through voting for  the bylaw again was thrown by  Mr Bracewell in a hinted fashion.  .. B. M. Maclntyre, MLA, has  now aligned himself solidly with  the Village by means of the following letter to Hon R. C. MacDonald, Minister of Municipal  Affairs.  "I am indeed pleased to learn  that your Department and the  Commissioners of/the Village of  Gibsons have completed the details necessary to include D.L.  685 and 686 into the Village.  The Village Clerk has forwarded to  me  a  copy  of  their  bylaw was submitted and overwhelmingly passed on August  23, 1950, and certificate of health  from the Provincial Government  Health Officer is dated September 6.  Certainly this discrepancy is  of no particular importance  when the date of actually-having the work done will still be  sometime later. \  To put the Village to the expense of another1 bylaw and the  same time annoy ratepayers  would seem to be ridiculous.  If it is within the power of  your department to allow for  this technical error, I would  strongly recommend that you  give it every consideration.

On September 13 the commission had requested the department to come to some agreement  with respect to the disputed  highway. It is council's contention the road should be slated as  a.primary, being a through way  to Gower. Following is the gist  of a letter received and read at  council meeting, Wednesday.  "At a recent meeting of the  highway board it was decided to  hold in abeyance any further  classification of highways within the bounds  of Gibsons until  WILLIAM "Bud" Paton, 20, popular member of the Firemen's  baseball team, was buried Thursday in Vancouver.

TO_  rawan won What Stupidity  ON THE evening of November 7. at approximately 6:35 there were 29 motor vehicles on the  Gibsons wharf, nine of these were heavy duty  trucks���there were no lights on the wharf, trucks  and taxis and private cars were backing back  and forth, children and parents were trying to  manoeuver on foot. Need we add to the" stupidity  of this by going further into detail?  Taxis were squeezed hard against the spot  where the Machigonne gangplank was due' to  lay. We suggest the Sea Bus Lines supply a platform for these vehicles or widen the gangplank,  they then could park right on the vessel or on  the gangway itself. It seems that will be the only  way to stop blocking the passage for passengers  who would desire to travel by some other means.  To further add to confusion in the dark, a  huge bus was parkeG within seven feet of the  gangplank. No one would be surprised to see a  Vancouver barge trying to   get into the act.  Sechelt has something along the same trouble, only redeeming feature there, is that few  people can guess within four hours when the  Gulf Lines will arrive, this means a certain percentage go home in disgust.  The Gibsons Board of Trade delegated Mr T.  R. Godfrey to look into the matter of zoning on  the wharf. Harbour Master C. P. Smith approved  of "any plan that will answer the problem."  That was sometime early this summer. Nothing has yet been done. Yet the situation on the  wharf is getting   every day more serious.  Wanted���New Faees  COAST  News   columnist,   Aries,   had  something  in a recent column which struck a familiar  note.  Said Aries, "Younger people should go to  political meetings and take more interest. All we  ever see are the same old faces and hear the  same old suggestions."  Hearty endorsation from every thinking person on the Peninsula should be accorded this  lady   for her remark.  Liberal rallies are the strongest and most  frequent. The CCF and Conservatives find birth  from the breath of a nearing election. We presume Aries means Liberal conventions and rai-'  lies.  It matters little what political party holds  the meeting. It is always the same old chaff.  If the Liberals have the meeting they listen  to James Sinclair tell them he is doing something  for the Peninsula. He built the Roberts Creek  wharf at the cost of hundreds of thousands of  dollars and one boat sometimes calls in there  sometimes once a week. We hear about that faux  paus every trip. Only with Jimmy telling it we  have a colored version.  B. M. Maclntyre, MLA, is called to the rallying post every few months, and Batt, being new  in this game, tries to give as clear and concise a  picture as it is possible for him so to do. Everyone  thanks Mr Sinclair and Mr Maclntyre for coming  to the meeting and the papers write up half a  column and everyone goes back to sleep.  We need new blood and ideas and fight in  our political parties, all three of the major ones.  We should have fight when these speakers  come to report to their constituents. Not fight for  the sake of a Donnybrook but fight in the sense  there is much to be done for the good of the  Peninsula, what are ��� these men going to . do  about?  The same old faces in the same old places  are getting away with the type of government  they like. In some cases it is riddled with petty  election graft, in others it is handouts from the  elected members, and in others and very infrequently, it is an honest, entirely above board  battle to elect the best man.  In very truth, that is what we all deserve.  We sit back and let the other fellow do it. There  is nothing strange or weird about a political  meeting. Every person on this Peninsula over the  Suddenly there wiU be a loud hue and cry  and repeated questions of "Why?" and, "Who is  to blame?" when some person is killed on the  wharf, or some mother, loaded with parcels and  young child, suddenly finds herself in the water,  desperately struggling   for life.  This is not a case of cry havoc. It is a situation where danger is imminent. The Gibsons  wharf in the dark, when the Machigonne comes  in, is fraught with trouble.  We have the RCMP who can very easily  clear the matter,' by doing as was done on West-  view wharf, prohibiting vehicles from parking.  This rule could probably cause undue hardship  to many. We would suggest Mr Godfrey's plan  of zoning and enforcement of no all-day or night  parking, would help bring common sense out of  the farce that now obtains.  Thin strips of tin, painted white and laid on  the wharf could easily stop this senseless crowding of buses and taxis against the very end of  the gangplank. Make the rules, and enforce them.  It may be well to remember that any citizen  can comnlain to the RCMP, it need not be a public body. The RCMP will take cognizance of any  danger to the public.  We suggest the-Board of Trade take warning'  and act. There will certainly  soon   come  a day  when rules will be laid down which could easily  annoy Gibsons and Sechelt Peninsula trade.  Let us not wait for the big stick when we  have the power to control ourselves.  age of 21 years can easily find their way around  at one. Go to them and listen to talk from the  platform, listen to the talk following the" meeting  when more politics is kicked around. Listen to  the undercurrent and the ebb and flow of talk  from between the lines. Following two public  meetings, each, interested person can feel quite  at home.  We urge everyone to take an interest in politics every day, not only on election  day.  Right here on this peninsula we have men  who are holding gravy jobs from their political  affiliations and party services. Some. of these  men, we all know them, are as qualified to hold  their positions as King Tut. _  We; have the picture of a local storekeeper  who made a quick switch in his faith so he could  acquire a  post  office in his building.  There are little, petty grafters on this peninsula. They are kept alive by the weird, rather  abhorring method of doing business one often  finds along the fringes of political parties.  It is up to each and every one of us to get  into these political meetings. It is up to each of  us to see that the better element within them  gets a chance to speak, a chance to forward a  fresh viewpoint.  Only by eternal vigilance can we expect to  keep good government. It should be remembered  our members of parliament are our servants.  It should be remembered when an elected  member gets so large in his own- machine that  he-starts laying down laws to party adherents;  when the member threatens with withdrawal of  his and his cohorts' favors, then it is time that'  person is kicked out from the party irrespective  if it  be Liberal, CCF, or  Conservative.  We, are democracy. No man is irreplaceable.  No man, even with his machine, is bigger than  the people. Only by voting intelligently and with  knowledge can we save democracy. Only by  eternal vigilancej even on the Sechelt Peninsula,  can we have good government of the people, for  the people by the people.  That applies here just as much as it did at  Gettysburg. Let no person believe, for one single  moment, otherwise.  In more ways than one, Aries was rfght.  Let  t_}e  younger,  newer  faces   appear.    Let  democracy take  over once  more.

The Sechelt group were hosts for  - the evening and a very enjoyable evening was had by all.  The players like the Roberts  Creek Hall and although we do  not wish to boast we were told  that the refreshments were  really first class. Since- this came  from a 'Roberts Creekite' that's  a good word so it's not infra dig  to pass it along. The return  match is being looked forward  to. Mr Guy Powell is the Sechelt team's Captain.

There was a petition  outside the hall to sign for just  this reason. Hope the quota of  names got on, when we went  down to sign it was taken down.  The newer pictures would be  more popular as so many of us  have seen many which come  here. As for us we can see some  many times. Such as 'So Dear to  my Heart'. Saw it about three  times, twice in town and once  here. When Naughty Marietta  was in Vancouver saw it seven  times and never wearied of that  grand singing team, Jeanette  McDonald and Nelson Eddy.  Hope  it comes here also.  Put a man in a bull dozer and  a demon of destruction rides  alongside, it seems this country  side is getting ugly enough without destroying the beautiful  Dogwoods. We went through the  new subdivision behind us here  at Sechelt and here was a beautiful Dogwood, the granddaddy  of all Dogwoods on the Peninsula uprooted and lying on its  side. Although we did not run a  line it evidently was on the  boulevard and thrown over out  of the way. We remember the  fight that'we put up to save our  Dogwoods on our side road.  They are not on the road allowance, and so we stayed with it  and won the day and now we  are grateful for their beauty every spring. Why all the streamlined roads 'God save the mark'.  We had a more leisurely way of  doing things years ago and saved the beautiful trees and the  roads were not full of pot holes  and stumps either. These came  out by hand. By the way it  seems to us that the Dogwoods  (Continued on Page 4)  THE COAST NEWS, Monday,  Nov.  13,   1950  3  Win.

As the Sechelt Peninsula develops, clearing operations are necessary. These, when carried out skilfully,  need not result in trees falling across power lines. In  the past few months unskilled or careless operators  have caused considerable annoyance to power users  by interrupting service through felling trees through  the lines. In many instances, these operators do not  realize the physical hazard which exists, and in several instances it is miraculous that no one has been  hurt.  An energized conductor which has been brought down  is extremely dangerous; It endangers not only the  operator who felled the tree which brought it down,  it also endangers anyone who comes near it until  such time as it is repaired.  In the interests of the Sechelt Peninsula customers  the Commission must recover from the person who  caused the damage all the costs which arise from the  accident. Nothing the Commission can do, however,  can reduce the inconvenience nor guarantee that the  careless operator or a casual passer-by will not be  killed.  To protect yourself and others from serious physical  harm and to protect your neighbor's electric service,  please exercise the greatest care when clearing near  power lines.

MIDWAY GENERAL STORE  BRITISH COLUMBIA'S  RESOURCES AT WORK  T|Jj^\T1JTipi13 Huge water power resources mean available  *^V^ VV __���__-_��� Xv primary power amounting to more than  11,000,000 h.p. ���- primary power for mining, forestry, agriculture  and manufacturing.  FORESTRY  In 1949, the production in the forests of British Columbia totalled  $360,000,000 and 1950 is expected to bring a yield which will set a  new high for dollar and production value. Modern conservation and  reforestation methods are working hand in hand with this great production. Stands of timber include Douglas Fir, Western Hemlock,  Western Red Cedar, Sitka Spruce, Western White Pine and Western  Larch. Products of these forests include, lumber, plywood, pulp and  paper, shingles and many other products.  This  industry provides  a     livelihood    directly  AGRICULTURE  and indirectly for more than 400,000 British Columbians. The value  of commodities produced'in 1949 is estimated at the record amount  of $145,000,000. Agriculture ranks second in dollar value among  the primary industries of B.C.  MINING  This important industry is still the backbone of much of the development throughout the Province. Production value in 1949 was $140,000,000. As  mining depends on a resource which once gone can never be replaced, your Government', University and Mining Companies are  constantly searching for new mineral deposits.  FISHING  British Columbia fisheries are famed  throughout the world and are an important part of her revenue. Of the 31 species of marine life contributing  to production of approximately $58,000,000, salmon, rich in protein  and delicious flavor, is the best known and most valuable. This industry provides work for thousands of fishermen, cannery workers,  shipbuilders and a host of associated industries.  These are your resources at work for you,  for your Province and  for the whole Dominion of Canada.  PROVINCE OF BRITISH COLUMBIH  Hon. Byron I.

Both men are well know and  popular residents of their own  localities.  Readers' Right  SIR���You will note by the enclosed clipping that the Sechelt  Board of Trade was not very far  out in their criticism of the  money spending on these  wharves  so few miles apart.  It is a common fact that  the  cost   of transport is loading and.  unloading,     the  modern   freight  vehicle  spends   very  little   time  travelling on short hauls.  The recent mishap to the  Sechelt wharf and the stormy  weather of the recent past shows  how truly the money was wasted  on Sechelt wharf. I would suggest that the money spent on  Sechelt cbeen added to the Davis  Bay wharf where it is practical  to land at all times it would have  been a credit to our Jimmie's  foresight.  As we are now, the boats are  fighting a losing battle against  the ferry and a car ferry will  settle the fate of both Roberts  Creek and Sechelt as far as  wharves go.  L. S. JACKSON.  SIR ��� It now appears that the  mouse the Gambier Island Mahomet labored on is even smaller  than any previous mice and as  the facts come to light it should  show those interested how this  turncoat bamboozled good, decent  folk into believing that they  would go bankrupt if they supported it or even if the bylaw  was passed.  This Mahomet cited the School  Act and in a certain clause there  is a promise of relief to they  who find it difficult to pay.  It now appears that after certain formalities are gone through  and a means test sort of application to the school board and a  visit to the notary public the  vast sum of eighty-five cents will  be about what the mouse will  save.  This should be the last straw  and    the    Mr.    Mahomet Drage  should have the   decency to retire from public affairs.  40 YEARS  We Lead the Harbour  with  Dry Goods, China,  New, fresh supplies.

L  PERCY  ROBERT  CROW|_-  SWORDS, agei^t,  DATED October 3rd, 1950.    j Dual Blame in       Wages Upped for  Bryant Accident    Village Clerk  MASTER'S certificate of Alen G.  Strang, former chief officer of  SS. Lady Cynthia, was suspended for1 nine months for his part  in the ship collision off Bowen  Island, October 3, in which three  men died.  The judgment was handed  down in Admiralty Court by Mr.  Justice Sidney Smith, sitting as  commissioner of a three5man  board at an inquiry ordered by  the federal department of transport.  ���: Government log scaler John  W. McDonald who was in command of the provincial forestry  launch A. L. Bryant at the time  of the crash, drew "severe censure" for his default.  NO COSTS ALLOWED  No costs were allowed against  any of the parties concerned in  the accident.  1   In    the     collision the wooden  launch  was sliced in two by the  steel prow of the steamship.  ;   Three    log    scalers     perished  while four were saved.  The judgment said the collision and loss of life "was caused  or contributed to" by both  Strang and McDonald.  SEVERE CENSURE  ��� While suspending the certificate of the chief officer, the court  notes that the forestry man "is  not the possessor of a certificate  of competency, and therefore we  can only severely censure him  for his default and this we do."  Mr. Justice Smith was assisted  in the inquiry by Capt. Samuel  Robinson and Capt. James Patrick, nautical assessors.  Their, joint findings state they  can find no excuse for the failure  of the Lady Cynthia to keep  clear of the motor vessel she was  1  THE MARINES'  GREATEST HOUR!  1  ���-��JOHN WAYNE  A REPUBLIC PICTURE  1 ax^^m^i^>ii^f^^^^t^^!SS^s^^^^  if  Sechelt,  Wed.,   Nov.   15  8 p.m.  Friday,   Nov.   17  7 and 9 p.m.  Madeira   Park, Sat.,  Nov.  18 ��� 8  p.m.  :*ttmri  Wm  THE  'BIGGEST   ;  [1>/IN* NT-  ENTERTAINMENT  HISTORY1  MMM un  GIBSONS ��� Delinquent    water  rate   payers   will   find   themselves charged an extra  ten per  cent penalty according to decis-  oyertaking, and that the Bryant  was to blame, but in lesser degree, for failing to keep a lookout astern.
