The suggestion that any further moneys needed by the  Village for water or for garbage collections could be raised  by raising the Business licenses came either without thought  ��� or without knowledge. ���' " ,    .  Most of the Business men in Gibsons are already paying  property taxes, on homes as well as on Business places. They  pay their business licenses according to the type and kinds  of businesses they operate. They also pay water rates. In  addition, /the business men are constantly being asked to  support generously, any and every "Good Cause'/ that is  thought, up in the community, from the School Annual to the  Fall Fair, from the CNIB to the Red Cross. They contribute  money, merchandise, time and effort, to all these. They are  considered fair game by every collector that comes along.  One just fails to see just why they should be selected to  carry an additional burden for services peYtinent to the whole  .   community.  Those who would penalize the business man would be the  firsft to object if said business man found the overload too  heavy, and had to raise his prices in order to meet all these  additional demands.  Private disposal tried and found wanting.  For years, the Village of Gibsons has tried the method  of private disposal of Garbage, with the net result that the  whole countryside is fouled and disfigured by the dumping  of village refuse, from cans to cars, from cartons to dead cats.  Spots within the village that could be pleasant places  for pLay for children, and an ornament to the Village, are  littered with all kinds of refuse, the result of the "Private  Disposal" methods practiced in Gibsons for years past. Where  a���"np:, durnping" r sign used, to show above- the- blackberries,  it was surrounded by refuse..  There may be one or .two conscientious occupiers of property, whether owners or tenants, who -really know the rudi-  naents of harmless disposal, and who use them. The majority  are only too ready to throw such matter over the fence, in o  ditches, or behind bushes. So many tenants seem to have the  attitude that "Oh, well. It isn't ours" and take no care .what,  ever of either the property or the garbage.  As for burying the garbage on the property, titer? are  plenty of residents who are not physically able to bur;- refu:o  properly, even if they were so inclined.  Burning was mentioned. Some things can be burned in  some stoves. Those heated by oil or electricity cannot do so.  During fire seasons, who burns? With what results?  Let us hope that the Village keeps its Garbage Collection  Service, now that it has one.  HOSPITAL INSURANCE  Tho   Hon.   W.A.C.   Bennett,.  Premier, ���  Parliament Buildings,  Victoria, B.C.

Letters To The Edit  o r  PACIFIC SALMON  Mr. Fearn's letter in your last  issue has some good points and  is timely, as there is no doubt  that the whole fishing industry  is on the verge of change. The  new gear, both nets and eleo.  tronie apparatus such as sonart  radar and now a new device  being tried in Europe that attract the fish close to. the boat  and literally sucks them into the  hold. All this spells the end of  the small fisherman... as the fish  will be taken long before they  get to the coast.  The Federal Government Research  Department  here  is  no  doubt   among  the  foremost  of  its kind in the world, and I am  sure they are alive to the situation. Some of our more strident  fishermen    will    have    to    be  paitient and see  what happens  It is going to be difficult if they  haven't a boat that can fish outside. Aliso the investment in a  boat of this, type will bring the  matter of invested capital which  will not sit Well, with their union  setup.  Mr. Fearn's last three paragraphs about the Japanese fisheries are in a sense true but need  more elucidation. The Japs are  fishing in mid-Pacific according  to the treaty with Canada and  The U.S.,-and up till now their  catches have not made much  difference  to the Pacific rivers  out, not only discourages American tourists from purchasing in  B.C., but encourages British  Columbians to increase their  purchases in U.S. border cities.  They feel that the present  method of premium payment1  places the burden for paying for  hospital care where it belongs  and that as a result it is a deterrent to people/ who might  otherwise use their hospital services indiscriminately with attendant higher operating and  capital costs. *'  They point out that the conversion from premium payment  to payment of hospital services  by   taxation   is,   in * effect,   tlie  socializing of hospitals in British  Gc-lumbia   just    as    they 'were  socialized in England, and point  to   the   abustes   of   the   system'  which sprung up there,    y ������ '���'. f  They recognize, that under the7  present system of .premium payf  ment  considerable  numbers   of  B.C.   residents   escape  payment1  of their hospital premiums but  note that under a sales tax ,plan  farmers   and   fishermen   would  still be exempt from many tax;  payments, thus placing the bur  SALARY RAISE  I certainly agree with the two  writers whose letters were recently in the Coast News, i.e.  Miss M.

This fall, the the local situation may become worse, because  after the sockeye runs are over,  there is no International Agreement concerning the other-types'  of Salmon, and we can expect  an even greater American fishing effort than last year.

What a contrast to the plight  of bur old-age pensioners, who  who really have a right to public  funds, after working and paying  taxes all their lives. They will  be  lucky   if they  get  a   small  hand-out of  $2.50 a month on  top of the few inadeqaite dollars  and streams, if. any. There'is a  reasonable chance that the fish,  they  are   getting  are. Siberian homes.  they already receive.

This, would show where  these fish belong and' jf they  are Pacific fish; new measures  would have to be taken. Another  poor feature is that these mid  Pacific fish are in main far from  mature. .      ;  The failure of the Alaskan  fisheries is generally conceded  to be the fault of the ruthless  methods employed in that area  enue from  Premium payments  and  poor escapement measures  quite often disregarded.  We here in B.C. think we have  a big pack if we get 1V_ million  cases, but the Jap pack last year  was 15V_ million cases. It must  be borne in mind that the Japs  ,are in a tough spot. They.have  no recourse but to fish to live.  Their own consumption per capita is 85 lbs a year, whereas  ours is 14M;lbs. It must be remembered that we have tlie  Atlantic fisheries to cope with,  too, in this sense that Britsh,  Icelandic, and all North sea  trawlers are catching fish closer  to our coast than their own, and  are very keen to sell in the  dollar market if at all possible.
