Following" is a self explanatory letter received by  this paper from James Sinclair, M.P.  Dear Sir.  I know your readers will expect me to answer your recent  editorial 'Attention Mr. Sinclair', critizing me for having had  too much federal money spent on construction of new wharves  and floats on the Sechelt Peninsula.  ilem  ocra'ey stands a very slim chance now.  Ten years ago, when I was  elected as member for the district, one of the chief issues  was the neglect of public facilities in the riding. Not even  my most enthusiastic supporters, at that time, however,  would have dared forecast that  ten years later I would be  criticized for having done too  much   for   the   riding.  Today every community  which needs a wharf or float  has one in good repair. Tt is  quite true that eventually,  when a first class road .sy.st'em  is built on the Peninsula' by the  Provincial Government, there  will"be far less need for these  wharves, as Gibsons will become the distribution centre of  the whole Peninsula. However-  that day has not yet arrived,  and in veiw of the state of the  roads v in recent winters, I am  sure my constituents are glad  they still have good wharves  and can travel.-by sea.  Only  three  major  projects  are outstanding in the district  -Completion  of the  small, boat  harbour  ^ at' ��� Roberts   Creek,  and the construction  of sma 1  breakwaters    at- Gibsons,   and  Sechelt.    all   to  ��� provide  anchorage for the- fishing'  and small craft which' x>.y our  coast'. The Government is. cutting back  on 'all  public works-    cate  expenditures today because of  increased defence expenditures, and so it is unlikely that  these projects will be finished  in the immediate future. However, I will continue to press  for them, as I consider them  important for the fishing industry and the district - unless,  of course, I find that the views  of your editorial are supported by the people of the district  and it is not desired to have  further  developements.  I notice, too, that you feel  I should be retired from public life. It is only a little more  than a year since I faced the  electorate, and in the Sechelt  Peninsula I recall receiving a  majority of almost four to one  over my nearest opponent,  which would not indicate a  very wide-spread desire for  my retirement. Three years  from now another election  will occur and there will be  a similar opportunity to  retire me.  I must, however, congratulate you on your obvious des-  ire to cut, down Government  expenditures    in the    dis'tri.-f.  am  associated  with   tin*   IX-  sale  fleet  T  .t  nance  -Department.  tho   DeparX__i\._t   mo-:t  interested in effecting economies.-We have found 'that Mom-  'hiLn   )���  keen"  sei's are always glad to  economies     in  advo-  another  again  lie revealed his plans to ruu  wheii  asked   by   Commissioner Mrs E. Nestman  It is believed the popular  chairman held off from announcing his decision pending  a "clarification of some private  matters"  ��� Village Commission decided  to ask the B.C. Power commission for 24 more lights in the  newly  enlarged Village.  Authority was given Wally  Graham to install a fire hydrant opposite the new firehall.  A request from the Ratepayer's Association that members of the Commission should  attend a public meeting, today was  filed.  Unemployment insurance  will be taken out to cover employees*" of the Village in the  future.  A letter was received from  Deputy Minister of Municipal  Affairs, B.C. Bracewell requesting the Commission to make  known, its views, by means of  a resolution, in regard to its  stand in the matter of three  or   five   man   commissions.  Gibsons has already taken  the stand it is against the five  man idea, which is now. law.  It' will reiterate'-this by the'  requested   resolution.  During discussion on this it  was brought  out  that  a pleb-  eseite would be necessary from  ratepayers " before   the   proper  authority   could   be     granted!  provided the Government passed  the law  in  the first place.  'Warning   will   be  sent   to   a  ratepayer   that   her   dog   will-  have to   be    licensed.    Robert  Burns,   municipal   clerk     was  authorised   to   warn   the   lawbreaker   that   the   dog   bylaw  would   be   enforced.   This   is  a  clue   to   the   stand   which   will  be  taken   in   the     future     by  Commissioners.        ' ., ���       ;  men are keen on reduction ot:  Government assistance to other businesses. 1 hope you are  not, of this type, for I. have a  suggestion to make to you  where we can save Government money in your own  business.  The former publisher of the  Coast News asked me to  secure all Government advertising for the paper. I was glad  to assist, for I knew the extra  revenue would be most helpful  in keeping the paper going.  I however encountered strong  resistance, for the Government  felt it was needless duplication  of advertising, since every  reader of your paper would  have, already seen the ads. in  the Vancouver dailies. I persisted, though, and got this  advert'sing for your paper.  1    realize    now    that    such  waste o  distaste  ming  orn....  i>  _. i��_!  lhlie funds must be  tn   y.:-u.

When mercy is mixed with equal ingredients of self protection  and self gain, we suggest it pays.  Such a sentiment may well, be in our minds wThen we open, the  familiar Gibsons and District Kinsmen  Club's Christmas Seal v  letter.  Everyone on the Penin��ula will have received a letter from  the club, complete with Christmas Seals. As the letter points  out, buying seals is not a "gesture of charity alone but just plain  common sense.  t  Wih the incidence of tuberculosis being just a shade above  the average on the Peninsula, for the province of B.C., it behooves everyone of us to look very closely at the opportunity  of helping keep our families free from this dread disease.  Mobile clinics are the only means, we here have of actually  detecting the scourge when it first attacks.  Our doctors can easily handle the onslaughts of T.B. once it  has been caught in the beginning - but they often wage a losing  fight when the attack has been long and consistently under  ground.  That is the main reason for T.B. Christmas seals. They help  spread the cost of mobile clinics and preventative medeciue.  They help to pay for testing they who cannot afford to have  ordinary tests made. This in turn, saves our families from another T.B. contact.  Christmas seals are a sound investment. They, as the letter ,  states, are not alone the sign of a compassionate heart but also  nf a good business mind.  Much credit' is due the    Kinsmen Club    for sponsoring this  When all is said and done, there are very few groups who  would wish to take oil the responsibility of such a major plan.  There is a tremendous amount of book keeping ��and planning  to go into collecting money from so many people. Ninety percent  pf the work is donated by the Kinsmen themselves. Long hours  and many evenings go into this promotion which is'just as much  for you and you as it is for anyone.  Take -advantage of this opportunity of saving your own life  and perhaps that of a loved one.  'Be An Angel - Buy a Christmas Seal'.

BACKWARD GLANCES  By ROBERT BURNS.  (Continued   from, last   week).  However   the   pioneer  Village  Fathers    had    their    Village,  peopled  with  taxpayers  needing water service, roads, lanes  and   many   other   things,   and  they had legal powers to supply those needs. One thing they  did    not  have:  MONEY.    Of  course  they  could  soon  begin  to   collect   taxes,   license  f ees..  etc., and    certain    grants    of  money    from  the     Provincial  Government  would  be  receivable. Adding to the gaiety of  the  situation, the world economic   system   elected   to   take  one  of  its  periodic  nose-dives  about  that  time.   We  plunged  into the 'hungry thirties' and  money  . became    a commodity  that  was  visible   only  behind  the  heavy   bars   of    bankers:  cages,   and  certainly  was  not  to  be touched or  handled  bv  common  people like the  residents., of Gibsons Lahdinsr.  Fortiiriately,  the  Commmissio-  ners were practical men rather  than  politicians,   and  they  put  into  practice  a  policy of  doing     the  best  thev     could  with   what  they  had,v  alwavs  keeping in mind the principle  of the   greatest   ^ood  to  the  greatest number.  Land covering X a .source    of water   was  acquired:   a    pumping    nlant  was installed; reservoir built;  and finally service pipes and  fire hydrants    put in    place  Naturally,  this was not done  immediately; in fact, the work  carried  on    for most of    the  first    five  years,   as  it could'  only  progress   as   funds  were  available.   The   dimensions  of  such     funds   are     interesting  (in    view of  the    figures  of  government    spending    today,  perhaps  'laughable' would be  a better word). For instance,  1937   is   perhaps   a   representative year, and happens to be  the    earliest  year for    which  fairly complete records  exist;  in that year the income was;  Tax Levy, land and improvements, $522.00.

This week we regret to announce    the    death    of    F.W.  Merrick, a former resident of  West Vancouver and for many  years  .engineer   on   the   West  Vancouver  ferry boats. "After  his retirement    he  moved    to  ' Roberts  Creek  where  he  and  his    wife  resided  for   several  years   at   his_ home  on Beach  Avenue.. Mr Merrick was instrumental    in organising    the  United   Church   group.   About  a  year  ago   health   compelled  him  to   leave   Roberts   Creek  and he  moved  back to  West  Vancouver.   During  the   week  end! he wras taken to hospital  where    he  died    on  Monday,  November 27.  Another old time resident  of Roberts Creek died last  week at Gibsons. Mr T  Mitchell.

But through Sam Fladager's insistance,  they  are  here  to. stay.  Out of town guests included the Pottery family, from  England. The Toys from Germany and the Linens from  Ireland. The S, and P. Shakers family, Mrs T. Pott and  Mrs T. Cups also attended the affair. Mr Bill Fold was  accompanied by Mrs T. Towel who has just arrived  here in Gibsons from overseas.  Several Mugs from an undisclosed address were also  e present. As. some of these were quite musical they were  allowed to stay. The only happening to mar the event  was when the Lamps    from  Toronto    became lit    and  finally had to be put out.  The happy couple have taken up residence in Gibsons,  where they will be at home to all their friends in the  Disrict.  h  i  1  ��1  I  I  1  Us  '/'������*  I  .1  I  I  ���x  _  1  1  .C90V  BY A  !T,  _i_n_��*ws Uii_i  MONDAY ���  WEDNESDAY  FRIDAY  Doors Close 4 p.m.  Three freight trips weekly from Vancouver  Covered barge leaves foot- of.

Clay up for a few days visiting her daughter Mrs J Shutz.  short visit today win Mrs  Josie Wheeler, and her new  baby.  Both doing very well.  We were very sorry to hear  that the old Union Steamships  are pulling out all the way ud  the line. Certainly putting the  load on the Machigonne. At  boat time the wharf is a grim  show. Right now it is just ab-  ou the dirtiest place, and in  disgraceful condition. Trying  to walk around the muck, and  miss tlfe puddles in the dark,  is a good trick if you can do it  With conditions the way they  are, wonder how long we will  have to put up with this setup.  In event of a breakdown of  our ferry, what happens then?  Traffic right now is just about  all that can be handled. Its time the powers that be, looked  this way through the other eye  When the wharf was opened  a few years ago, it'looked very  impressive. Today it's certainly anything but. What the answer is, well, your guess is as  good as mine. Anyway we'll  wait  and  see.  Well folks just in case I don't get this column in between  now and the 25 of Deeemderr  I'm going to beon the safe side  and wish you all Merry Xmas.  .i'/  * AWAY, RIO!
