Sechelt to Plan  latepayers  rotests to  elevation  Commission  For a few minutes, the Gibsonjs viliagie commission was  subjected to a barrage from delegates of the, Gibsons Ratepayers  Association when a delegation of their members turned up to  Tuesday's meeting to protest the granting of wa*er to six residents of the Indian Reserve.  ��� ---���  Dr.   Harley   Anderson   and  Jack Gordon, speaking for the  Ratepayers, began the barrage,  strongly protesting- the move  of the council to grant water  to users outside the; village,  boundaries when the village  was not sure of an adequate  supply for its own use. But  the big guns were opened up  when W.B. Hodgson, president  of . the association, put in a  strong protest against the  ���granting of water, when .he  protested methods used by the  Villagers Fail to  Name Commissioner  Taxpayers of Gibsons again  failed to nominate for commissioner, this time to fill the  vacancy created by the resignation of Mrs..

Mrs. Nestman had been on  the commission only a few  weeks having beietn nominated  to fill one of the positions  created by the resignation of  Messrs.

He suggested that the village  council should usa the columns  of the Coast News to tell the  residents of village- council  affairs. Commissioners came  back with the argument that  the meisitings were open to the  public.  Hastily Joe Sehutz got up*  to explain that he had not  used water for sprinkling  during the ban, and the other  commissioner";! took turns in  assuring the delegates that an  ample supply of Avater would  ���''''''v^e^-f'"aVaii?a1&Ie -when ��� -tiie new  pipeline was laid. They cited  cases whefe present pipe, along  the Cannery road, was leaking  badly, wasting gallons of  water.  Still,   ihe   Ratepayers   were  not    convinced.    They    asked  that no more outsid,ei connections be allowed until the new  line   isi  tejfted- f)or   a   year  in  order that the village may be  assured of its own. supply. They  qitestioned the  commission  on  water at the  source to which  Commissioner  ' A.E.     Ritchey  answered that further springs  would   be   piped   as   soon   as  jrnoney wai-/ available.  Commii3sioner Boucher stated  that the proposed $1200 addition to the| municipal hall  had been shelved so that the  money could be put to use1 in  connection with roads and  waticr supply.  The   barrage  again   became  hearvy  when  the   question  of  the sale,- of  the  village  truck  came  up.  When  commissioner  accused predecessors of buying  a costly   pde.ctei  of   equipment  which could not he used sufficiently to^assuiie  its  worth,  Dr. Anderson,  a former commissioner, rose to his feet and  accused   some of  the  present  council  members  of  objecting  to the purchase of the truck  because   of pen-son al   financial  implications  Mr.  Ritchey had  said, during the discussion on  the purchase that he "had a  truck standing kite." He  explained, however, that he was  not in the trucking business.  Dr. Anderson  said that the  truck   was    being    boycotted  because  the   prfcsent  commissioners, objected to its purchase  in thte. first pla'ce.

I*t BONE  Chartered  Accountant  1045 West Pender St;  VANCOUVER 1, S:0.  v v��� TAtlow' 1954 ^     "  Trans-Canada Air Lines has* ordered three additional Lockheed,Super Constellations, bringing to eight the number of  aircraft of this type selected by the airline for service on  international routes.  it  itonais  k matter of doocern  Whether we read the "FinancialwTimes" or not, whether  we concern ourselves with international affairs or not, the  matter of the dwindling British meirket is a matter that is going  to, affect all of us. Even if we merely shrug our shoulders and get  on with our little jobs here on the Peninsula, it is going to have  its effect on our economy.  British Columbia has no new lumber contracts with Great  Britain, no contracts for salmon,'and no contracts for apples.  Mind you, there are many other countries we can always deal  with, but Britain has been one of our big customers.  It isn't that Great Britain doesn't want our lumber or our  fish or our fruit. It isn't that Great Britain doesn't like us or  our prices. She just can't pay the land of money we want.  - It seems to us that some international finance" could be  figured whereby Great Britain could pay in sterling and the  Canadian government could accept:that sterling,���'converting it  into gold cerificates for the; producers and shippers. We could  then buy from Britain, paying for our purchases in the sterling  she paid us. "- '  i  Unless something is done, it looks as if we'll have to pull  in our horns as a trading province, and probably take less money _  for  our  produce  with  a   subsequent   lowering   of   our   living  standards.  To make matters worse, it is conceivable that' the Republicans could win the election in the United States. And. the  Republicans' haVe been noted in the past for slapping up high  tariffs. This may; conceivably cut out some of our big contracts,  with the United States, and leave, us with stocks of rotting  lumber, rotting fish, and rotting fruit���and slim pocketbooks.  The other side  ! Since our editorial of a few months ago, in which we drew  attention to the need for an increase in the mill rate at Gibsons,  we have heard from the other side. And they present an argument  which is both interesting and perfectly logical. We feel it only  fair to present it:  Most of our residents here on-'thei Peninsula have come here  to escape the high taxation of Vancouver and district. They  have come to buy homes and to settle here on small company  pensions and army pensions. And, as long as our tax remains low,  we'll get more and more residents with small, but fixed, incomes.  If a depression hits'���and we don't think, it will���or if there  is a prolonged strike, or a long forest closaire, thet younger people  will be moving away, looking elsewhere for work or government  relief. And it is these oldstielrs��� the Old. Sweats and the retired  f:ol,k���whe will remain here "to keep "the grocer;rs_ca&h register  ringing up sales.: True, they'll be buying* in'.smalLquantities and  they won't be able to afford the- frills: ;but they^1 be buying,  keeping the Peninsula going until better tinies return.  Then, the progressive; younger men will return to the  Peninsula to open up businesses, to advocate the coming in of  industries���and to advocate higher mill rates���for progress.

Photography Hints  For Amateur Fans  Developing your own roll of  film is as easy as making a pie.  (Developing means finishing  the roll of film; and. has  nothing to do with making the  prints���which is also as easy  as' pie.}  Ingredientei: -  From the drug- store get  tubes of developer. They are  about a- dime each. One will  do for three or four rolls. Also  get a - can of acid fixing  powder. You need water'-'and  light, and three pyrex or  enamel dishes.  Procedure:  Mix develox>er as directed;  pour into one dish. Mix- fixer  as directed; pour into another  dish. Put water in the third  dish. Try to have all temperatures aTround 68>degrees E.   ..  Find yourself e- light-tight  room or closet with a shelf.  (Be careful with the chemicals.  Theycan damage paint.) Turn  on a dim red light���the dimmer  the better.  TvWhen you are sure there is  no white'light entering your,  darkroom, unroll the film. Tear  off,, the paper backing and  throw it away. Unroll the film  and wash it in the water for  a few seconds.  Take one end of the roll of  film in each hand. Wateh your  fingernails! They are sharp!  Rock the film, to and fro in .  the developer for about two  minutes. It should 'turn dark  in about a minute/Examine it  under the red light' to ascertain the contrast, or leave to  develop fully in about two-  and-a-half minutes.  Rock, in water to wash off  the developer.  Rock in the fixer for about  two minutes. Turn on a faint  white light at the end of two  : minuter���if you like���rahd  ifinish the job in the -light.  Fix for a total of about eight  minutes.  Twist film into- a figure of  e-ight; fasten the ends with  clothes pegs,, and let the film  wash ip running water for  about 20 minutes.

A storekeeper in Gibsons  reported that 'his saljeo havei  increased year by year over  the past seven years.  "Summer business was much  better, in spite of the strike/'  he said. "If we hadn't had a  strike wet'd have done very  wall."  " One automotive dealer stated  that hie- sold over twenty cars,  new  and  usted,   during  July,  'even though the logging camps  were closed.  Newcomers in the business  jcirclesi in both S e, c h e, 11 and  Gibsons have found business  bejtter than they had anticipated during their first few  months in business'.  General concensus of opinions  among thpi merchants on the  Peninsula seems to be that w<��  are .entering an era of prosperity for the district.  ���-.. Despiite the| fact ��� thje�� ferry  has had a tendency to bring  the Vancouver shopping centrf  within two .hours of Gibsons,  more residents appear to be  buying at home���where their  money will go further. They  are finding that some goods  arte actually more; reasonable  here than in Vancouver stores.  Progrest?iiv)ei businessmen arp  finding that their increased  advertising in the local newspaper is boosting their businesses and volume sales are bringing a greater variety of goods  to the stores.

Kinsmen governor    Gravel Crusher To  Instate Officers      Oo Highway Work  Landon DeLong of Chilliwack, deputy governor of  Kinsmefn of B.C. was here  last wje��ek to instal the new  executive of the Gibsons Kinsmen club. He remarked, prior  to the installation ceremony,-  .that' he was going to worjj  towards having more Kinsmen  clubs come to visit the Gibsons  group.  "You have an unsurpassed  ferry trip over herei; the meals  served here are tops; and the  local Kin are most hospitable",  h,e said.  Thonie installed were Mike  :Landre,V, a�� president,; Jack  Marshall as vice-president;  George Miller as secretary;  Harry Mylroie, treasurer; Don  Hauka, registrar. Harry Smith,  Laurie Speck and Geo'rge  Hunter w^ere installed as directors, George Hill being absent.  Past - president George  Hunter presented a past-president's pin to Immediate Past  President Tom Larson.  Reporting on the playground,  Laurie Speck said that the  swings had been installed and  the erection of a picnic table  was pertly completed. He suggested for next year, the planting of the playground to clover,  .the; er<?��tion of a merry-gor-  round, further installation of  tables, and the building of  rest rooms.  President Mike Landrey  named the following to serve  on comm.itteefc: John Wood  and Harry Smith to the finance  committee to assist Harry  Mylroie>; Tom Larson, Latirie  Speck and Jack Marshall to  entertainment; Reg Godfrey  to be sergeant at arms; and  John Wood to head the membership committee.

WAKEFIELD  VISITORS TO  Mr. and Mrs. Stan Walker  Wakefiie,ld Inn had as their  guests over the weekend, Mr.  and Mrs. Gordon Gordison of  CaHgary and Mr. and Mrs..  Jack Slater of A r ca d j. a  California. '   ���  According to Tony Gargrave,  MLA-elect, a gravel crushes  will be brought to the Peninsula this falh It will be necessary to put a-cover of several  inched of gravel over the;  Gibsons-Agamemnon highway  before black-topping can be  can be laid.  "Batt" Maclntyre, former  MLA for the riding, had told  the Coast News last April  that a gravel crusher would be  stationed here this year.  Some progress has been made  in preparing the road for gravelling. Two bridges and a bad  curve have been taken out in  one part of the Roberts Creek  area, and another bridge was  recently eliminated. Work is  now being done on thei bridge,  over Mission Creek at Wilson  Creek.  According to Tony, the  "million dollar highway" had  been promised by thei government?, but no'datet was set for  its completion.  "It may  be  completed in  I960",  Tony   remarked  in  a  letter to the/ Coast News. No  money had been se'it' aside for  the work, he said.  \An executive member of the  MacKenzie   Riding  Liberal  Association, however, has told  the.Coast News that the former  Coalition    Govieiramelntt    had  definitely    pledged    itself    to  complete the road as soon as  the  ferry  wharves  are   ready  for the. Jervis Inlet ferry.  PINTAIL BAGS 'EM  IN ONE HOUR  Pintail, Daily P r o v i n c e,  fishing and hunting expert,  started out from the Gibsons  wharf yesterday morning about  nine o'clock to go to his favorite fishing spot, just this side  of Gower Point. He was back  in Gibsons by 11:15 in order  to catch thei 11:30 ferrjr,-to  Vancouver;" During that time  he caught a nice string of fish.  Canada ranks first in world,  production of nickel, asbestos  ���and the platinum metals;  second : in aluminum (from  imported ore), zinc, and gold;  -and third in silver production.  (Continued from page 1),  to explain tha^ the -Ratepayers  had been against the purchase  of the truck, but"once it had  been purchased, he said, they  objected to its sale at a loss.  (The council had nioved to  sell the truck to Eric Inglis  for $2800.)  Thi/s, in turn, brought sip  the question of the bi-weekly  financial sate'ments which were  handed out to the commissioners at each meeting.  "W;ej would likfc' to know  where the money is going, and  who is getting it." Mr. Hodgson  told the commissioners. *'Fprv  instancy" hei continued, "if  we knew what the^-truck was  costing us to operate it, we  could better judge the action  of the commission in offering  it for sale." He, askied that a  * copy of the bi" weekly financial  statement be published in the  Coast News.  When Mr. BoUcher asked if  he/ meant, that/the commission  should pay to have it published,  he said that the Coast 'News  should publish it as a service  to- its. readers.  '' All this was mixed in with  the question of garbage col-'  ^(e|;ion; who would pay. 1'or  the collection; the poor state  of-the roads; w��ter and pipe-  linies; and the poor job being  done of enforcing the parking  bylaw.  To' which thfei commissioners  asked,*" intermittently, where  the money was to come from.x  The commission then got  back on the track of business,  heard the report of committees, thp reading of a bylaw  amendment, and discussed  delinquent business taxes.  When the; commissioners  moved adjournment, : Rate*  payjejns and Commissjioneje  amicablyv said their goodbyes, .  and the commissioners thanked  the rateg^yers for. coming to  their meetmg.   -(        v  B.C.
