 PRoyisciAiJ  VICTORIA. B. C. |  Provincial Library,  Victoria,  B,  CU  Eighth Year of Publication  Vol. 8 - No. 27  Thursday July 8,   1954  Published  in  Gibsons,  Bi-C  upercan  led Ace!  Death  A coroner's jury at Gibsons  brought in a verdict of accidental  ��� death in the case of the Supercargo,  & Capt. Thomas King Scott of Vancouver, aboard the M.V. "Crobor-  ough Beacon," on her voyage between Nanaimo and Port Mellon,  on Sunday afternoon, July 4th,  clearing the crew, and the Vessel,  of any part in or any fault leading  to, the death.  While the vessel was wharfed in  Nanaimo, prior to her trip, Captain  Scott had come aboard, and at the  suggestion of the ship's Master,  Captain Davies, remained in his  quarters, opposite those of Capt.  "   Davies.  About two-thirty in the afternoon,  the mate, Mr. Tatchell, . heard  sounds.of footsteps on the deck outside his quarters, at the foot of the  companionway leading down from  the upper deck. Investigating, he  found two stevedores approaching  Captain Scott, who was lying at  the foot of the companionway. He  thought Captain Scott may have  fallen down the steps, and had him  moved to the Officers' Smoker.  When    Captain    Davies    came  aboard, the ship left Nanaimo for  Port   Mellon.   It . was   believed   by  those attending that Captain Scott,  was under the influence of alcohol,  arid sleeping.   When his condition :  was checked at five o'clock, "there '  was difficulty finding a pulse and!  bleeding from nose was noted. -A j  radio  message  was  dispatched  to j  ''/       Vancouver, asking for medical help j  to be made  available  as   soon as!  landing at Port Mellon.   Later, it \  was discovered that this radio nies-1  sage was not delivered until three |  hours after dispatch. Captain Scott  died at approximately  six o'clock,  before the vessel docked.  Cpl.   Morrison,   of  the   R.C.M.P.,  Gibsohs Detachment,, was notified,  and with pr.yD.yMcCoU^and'^bnst;--  McCarthy, went to the ship at Port  Mellon.  The coroner's fury was called for  Monday morning, and heard evidence of the Captain and Mate of  the Croborough Beacon, and that  of the R.C.M.P. and Dr. Hugh Inglis  who performed the post mortem.  Evidence' of extensive haemorrhage of the brain was given by the  , ^Doctor, due to injury.  A. King Scott, son of the deceased  Supercargo, was on hand, and gave  evidence to the effect that his  father had been in excellent health  on leaving Vancouver, that he did  not suffer from any heart ailment  or other similar condition. j  A verdict of "We found, consid-1  ering all the evidence, that death ;  Local Re*!

E. Duffy, Sechelt.  i The meeting was called to con-  | sider the advisability of organizing  1 a local Real Estate Board, to oper-  i ate as do those in other districts in  I the Province.    ��s  I,. A most interesting and beneficial  preliminary discussion took place  in which the following gentlemen  took part:  . Horace ^ggett of Wilson Creek,  J. G. Bradford of Gibsons, John  Coleridge of Gibsons, James Drummond of Gibsons, T. E. Duffy of  | Sechelt, H. B. Gordon of Sechelt,  V. E. Metcalfe of Gibsons, Harold  Wilson of Gibsons.  A letter was received from Horace Williamson, of Pender Harbour, expressing his full agreement  with the idea of a Board, and stating that owing to illness he-would,  regretfully, be absent on this occasion.  Mr. Duffy gave a short talk on  the reasons for the get-together  and asked for the views of those  present. As a result it was resolved  that a Board be forthwith formed,  to be known as the Dower Gulf  Coast Real Estate Board.  The following officers were then  elected: President. Harold E. Wilson; Vice-President, H. B. Gordon;  Secretary-Treasurer:     John    Cole-  William McLean of Roberts Creek, aged seventy one years  u'led by suicide on Tuesday, July 6th, of carbon monoxide poisoning,,  seated in his car in his own garage at his 'home, according to thfe  deliberations 'of the Coroner's Jury at Gibsons on Wednesday morrt-  ing, July seventh.  'Mr.   Gordon   Cook   called   by j ~���   Mrs. McLean, found the garage  closed, and on entering found  lylr: McLean sea'ted in the front  car seat, with the doors closed,  and the motor running.  Mr. Cook got the 'body out  into the fresh air 'and started  artificial respiration. Mr. Ron  Hughes, of Roberts Creek was  called and went to Mr. Cook's  assistance. They continued with  artificial respiration until the  arrival of Cpl. Morrison of the  H.C.M.P. at Gibsons, and Dr.  Duncan McColl,' who adminis-,  ���tered oxygen. !

Any student anywhere in Canada  could   make   application   for   this  Scholarship,    and    many    applied.-  From these applicants Maldy was  chosen.

Nothing dampened  their spirits, however, and, garbed  in their helmets and Derby shirts,  they called on their sponsors to report the good time they bad had,'  and their eagerness for another try.

Work on a new office for the  Bank of Montreal's Sechelt office  is well under way, according to  D.B. Smith, manager of. Gibson's  Branch. Mr. Smith also announced that when the office is completed, its status will 'be raised  to that of a full-time branch.  The new quarters, next door to  the Pest Office, will occupy  np-ace on the ground floor of a  two-story building being erected  by Village Enterprises, Ltd.,  owned by Mr-. J.-E.

A piece of hose in the base  ment of the home showed evidence of recent cutting, and  ^matched the piece found 'beside  the "car.  Mr. McLean's son, Wiiliam,  from Langley Prairie, seemed  stunned by the fact that his  father could conceivably end h'is  own 'life.

Dear Sirs:���  During a visit to Roberts Creek,  Wednesday, June 16, 1954, we had  the heartbreaking experience of  losing our little girl Jennifer, for  over three hours.  After searching for her for over  an hour in dense brush and unfamiliar surroundings, we finally  got in touch with the R.C.M.P.  Within half an hour, Constable McCarthy had volunteer search parties  organized from both Roberts Creek  and Gibsons. Thanks to their wonderful help, they located our "Jen"  over a mile from our camp, on a  rock bluff overlooking the . water.  My 'wife and I want to 'express  �� f  of Roberts Creek and Gibsons for  their kind co-operation. But for  them, we might never have found  her. I did not have the opportunity  to thank them personally, as I was  searching the beach west of the  camp when they returned her to  my wife's waiting arms, and they  had left before I returned.  I would appreciate it if you could  possibly convey my thanks to all  the searchers involved.  Once again, thank you very  much.  Gratefully yours,  N. LOPTHOUSE.  Editor, Coast News,  In reply to the .letter by Mr.  Peers, it would appear to me that  we are producing a generation of  money grubbers today, and I would  like to submit the enclosed poem  ���for publication, author unknown.

You  have asked for facts from the parents as to the reasons for this  exodus of teachers.  Speaking strictly for Madeira  Park, I firmly believe that the  school board is very weak in dealing with matters in this area. More  accurately, may I say that I believe the school Inspector does not  report to the school board a very  factual account of the conditions  existing in the school.  The mutterings were loud and  deep at this end of the Peninsula.  A meeting was held to try and  rectify conditions here, ��� hut to no  avail. -The damage is done now,  but let us hope for much greater  co-operation from the inspector and  school board in the coming j'ear.  Signed "Isabel Gooldrup."  P.S.���With one teacher excepted,  the relationship between teachers  and parents is excellent.  see the sign on the billboard. As in  the past, this tea will afford a meeting place for old friends who seldom have the opportunity to get together. Not only that, but a tea  cup reader will foretell your destiny, for an additional two bits.  ;**��*  IR  Harry:  "Likewise, Joe, and that  Shorter Letter, Please  We have been most pleased with  the response from interested people  regarding our last week's editorial.

Riding the highway to Pender  with the sun glint on the Malaspina  Straits, Chuck said it reminded him  of whales round Gibsons years ago  and he wondered what ever they  did with the enormous pile of whale  bones that was left on Paisley  Island. That started him off on  the story of George Glassford and  the whale off Cowan Point Bowen  Island.  Chuck and his partner had  pitched a tent on Cowan Point and  were hunting blue grouse for the  market, which was, incidentally the  C.P.R. Empress boats to China.  Chuck says he kind of recognized  the boat. and figured it was Old  George, and when he came up to  the Island he could see he was rowing kind of wild and there was a  whale playing round, the boat. They  yelled at George to come ashore  and have dinner, and maybe his  whale would push off in the meantime.  George was coming back from  town with a few groceries. He was  no lover of the sea in any event,  arid he told Chuck that the danged  old whale had followed him from  the Narrows', and he was scared  that the whale might play rough  with him and his groceries.  They had dinner, and mid-afternoon George set off for home.  Chuck says he hadn't, got half a  mile away when Mr. Whale showed  up right alongside, and this kept  George inshore where the whale  couldn't get. This kept us as long  as they could see him.  Chuck says they got 288 blue  grouse in short order, and at a dollar a hrace "they done good." "With  good whiskey at a dollar a bottle,"  Chuck says,  "we done  alright."  .. Re whales, what one can gather  here and there, it is evident 'that  the inside passage in those days  was infested with whales, and,the  whalers used Paisley in earlier  times as a flensing station, which  was surely much handier than  working oh. them at sea, one would  think. The great pile of bones was  no doubt carted into town to be  shipped to the steel mills for tempering purposes, same as the buf-;  falo bones on the prairie.  Whaletown on Cortez Island was  another early days flensing depot  where the beach facilities were,  perfect for such work. The whaling  was on its last legs around the.  turn of the century, although the  last boats were around here in  1910.  Chuck said: "Me and Ralph Gibson took a flat skiff out in Gibson's  bay with a .44 Winchester to shoot  a whale.  That old whale came up about  20 feet from the boat and near cap-  Community Spirit  Gets Road  Improvement  Community spirit demonstrated  in a practical w.ay has resulted in  road surfacing around the Headlands area in Gibsons.  Ratepayers  of that area got together and  contributed  to  a fund  for   oiling  the   Trueman   Road   as  far as the Ritchey corner this week.  Taking advantage of the presence  of   the   Adanac   Contracting   Company working on other roads in the  ���Village,    these    property    owners,  j with   George   Friend   as   collector,  i raised  one  hundred  and fifty dollars for this project.  All those using this piece of road  will rejoice in the fact that "community spirit" is still flourishing  in the Headlands.  sized us, and then rifle misfired  and I was glad about that, as that  there whale might not have been  mean but if he took a notion to play  about we were in a tight spot."  Those with some knowledge of firearms can imagine a black powder  .44 and a 100-ton whale.  I shall always remember a hunting trip on Keats Island, and looking down from a bluff on the east  side and seeing seven of these  cetaceans lolling about on top of  the water, and the ensuing maelstrom that followed a shot into  their midst with a 30.30 rifle.  Legend came to me from two  sources that the log sorting ground  now called Andy's bay was the  arena for whale versus thrasher  and sword wish, and an old chap  BLUEBACKS  Are Running -  Sports Fishing Gear  In Good Supply  AT   MURDOCH'S  Give Our  FROZEN FOODS  A Try  We Have A Complete Line  who lived on the beach at Hillside  long years ago told me that the  roars and the splashing from these  epic battles would echo from shore  to shore at times.  He said the thrashers would  come out of the water 20 feet, and  when they came down on the  whale's head you could hear the  thud where he lived. It would seem  as if the Killers penned the whales  up in that corner according to him.  Well they are all gone now and  I think we would all agree that  whales, killers; and sword fish  would not be the thing to have  around among the salmon fishers  on derby day. The whaler in the  picture is the St. Lawrence at Sechelt in 1906.  L. S. J.  Roofing Repairs  Prompt Attention  WORK    GUARANTEED  Box 10, Coast.

It   may   not   be   understood   by  some, but all members of the Fire  of  time between  the  outbreak  of j BriSade are occupied at their own  work, and unless they definitely receive a call, by the sounding of the  siren, the chances of them seeing  fire and the turning in of an alarm j  may be just the amount of time  needed for the fire to get quite out  of control. The call answered last  week to the Indian Village, to the  home of Clarence Joe, was an example of a  late alarm.   Although  the first signs of a fire are remote.

This of course may not be right but  it is the way I see it.  I have been hearing rumours that  the Gibsons Merchants are folding  up, I for one hope this is just a  rumour. During the last month  most of the Jieams have been working to strengthen themselves- and  the Merchants it seems, have been  working in the opposite direction.  The Merchant mentors (and  there are many) have left some of  their better men warm the bench  and have played the boys who turii  out to practise oftener and who maybe a little better to get along with.  All this is fine but the Merchant  brass should realize that this is not  a pony league where if you are a  good boy you play, but that this is  a darn good ball league and the  main idea is to win ball games and  not to pacify individuals, especially  those not connected directly with  the team.  The result of all this is that the  Merchants   have  lost   a  couple   of  good men and have had to replace j  them with rank amateurs.  Tf the Merchants fail this year,  how do - they ever expect to sign  players next year? No ball player  in his right mind wants to play for  a club that does not. play ball to  win. If what T have written does  not ring a bell look at the more  recent history of the former St.  Louis Browns, too many owners,  too many bosses, and too much  ->acjfying the individual made them  the laughing stock of both the  Major leagues and led eventually  to their disbandment. The Merchants have a terrific following  but so far have given them nothing.  FOUL BALLS  I understand an outfielder who  ���"f��sn't good enough for the last  nlace Merchants is being signed by  the top running Port Mellon club.  (See what I mean?)

That some of these youngsters show  great promise is very evident.  Following the recital, refreshments were served to the parents  in the living room while the young  folk frolicked in the huge garden,  ice cream, lemonade and cake  keeping up their strenth.  Of special interest in the beauti-  "ful sea front grounds was a 'black  lily,' an exotic tropical flower  blooming this year for the first  time. When the flower first burst  open a. few days before, it was  thought that it would have to be  destroyed because of the. overpowering odor with which it permeated the grounds, but by Monday, night it had spent itself and  was odorless.
