COURTEOUS SERVICE  Letters of thanks from Gibsons Village council to the Sechelt, Port Mellon and Gibsons  and area firemen for their  hard work in combatting the  Bal Block fire July 28 will be  sent as soon as possible, it  was decided at Tuesday night's  council meeting.  The council also expressed  its thanks to those volunteers  not members of any fire department who so valiantly assisted wherever * their services  were required.  Comments on the terrific  blaze included such as "we  were lucky it was no Worse"  and "the firemen deserve our  highest praise." No commis- .  sioner had any criticism to  offer and all were quite "Happy  the fire was no worse than it  was. "V^vC';"''-;'?  A building permit for an  $8,000 one-storey residence,  34 x 25 ft. with five rooms, to  be built on Lot 4, Blk 2, D.L.  686, by Mrs. A.M- Labonte,  was passed.  Council moved that previous  agreement with Harry B. Winn  for erection of a barrier or  fence on the property filled  in by the village at the hign-  way side of the telephone office, be fulfilled. Commissioners will look oyer the area to  decide what should be done.  The heaviest accounts list,of  the year, totalling $5,434.95,  was scrutinized and passed.  The largest sum was $5,344.27  for work on the gravity main  and block four water service.  The other items were small,  $18.92 for fire protection, $38.-  54 for general purposes, $11.44  for roads and $21.68 for water.  one  cl  disruption  earea up quickly  d  When Gibsons' fire chief  and, telephone man Fred Feeney finished directing operations on that desperate Tuesi-  day morning afeer. a; seven-  hour battle with the Bal block  blaze, he snatched a quick cup  of coffee and then immediately pitched into the urgent task  of repairing fire-ravaged telephone communications.  Fred's survey of the damage  \ -evealed that 100, feet of cable  :^i'n the vicinity of the burht-out  block were twisted and buckled beyond repair. As a^result,  400 telephones in the northern  par$ of, the exchange had been  cut off, and the Port Mellon-  Vancouver teletype link was  out of service,-.  Telephone men Frank Wheel  er.and Bernie Duval from Sechelt were called in to help,  and a splicing crew With a  new length of cable?was dispatched from Vancouver.     "  By the time these reinforcements had arrived,._Fred had  already succeeded in setting  up emergency lines to the affected areas, and from there on  it was a case of splicing in new  Hospital fund  grows slowly  Donations to? the campaign  for funds for St. Mary's Hospital are coming in gradually,  acsording to Campaign Manager Hubbs.

Miss Lottie Kennedy, chief operator, was kept informed;  ' throughout the emergency, and  all operators .'put themselves  at the ready in case their assistance was needed.  Rush to  Insure  One thing the Bal Block fire  did was to arouse the interest  of a good number of people  to the fact their property was  uninsured.  Insurance agents in Gibsons,  area report they have done a  considerable amount of new  business since the fire and  some of the policies taken out  have been for fair sized amounts.  Up to the time of going to  press C.P. Ballentine owner of  the burned out block has been  unable to decide what will be  done with the property ,owing  to insurance adjustments pending.

On Sunday these skin divers  were at Sakinaw Lake where  they salvaged an outboard engine from 40 feet of water for  George Haskin. ��� Divers who  took part were George Flay,  Sandy Piggott and Tommy Cro-  zier.  SELF-INFLICTED     WOUNDS  At the inquest on Robert  Doherty held at Sechelt -with  Dn. W.N. McKee, ���coroner, and  jury composed of George Millar, foreman, George Derby,  Leo Johnson, Butch Ono, Dan  Currie and A. Benner, the verdict reached was that Doherty  met his death through self-  inflicted gunshot wounds in  the head.  Because some of Gibsons and area Volunteer Fire Brigade  firemen lost or damaged clothing in the Bal Block fire and such  damage is an expense out of their own pockets when replaced  the Coast News is starting a fund for the firemen to last two  weeks only.  This fund will be collected at the Coast News office and  turned over to the (Volunteer fire brigade's chief, Fred Feeney,  for disposal. The firemen should not be out of pocket because  they volunteer for dangerous work.  The Coast News has opened the appeal with a $10 donation and Commissioner Fred Crowhurst has followed with another $10.  So roll up with your donations and place them at the  Coast News where you will get a receipt for the same.  These Vancouver Sun Danny Scott photosi from the air  and on the ground depict the  extent of the Bal Block fire  more: clearly than words can  describe it.

But this band is  unique in that the players are  all We_t Indian students at the  University of B.C. They know  their drums.  A special set of drums is  now being made in Port of  Spain, Trinidad, for the P.N.E.  They will be the only set of  their kind in Canada. Dr. J.C.

A miracle occurred  If there is a predominant thought in the minds of Gibson-  ites as the result of the fire which destroyed Bal's block it would  be that some sort of miracle occurred. It looked as though heavy  sparks would create fires elsewhere but none were reported. Why  no fire broke out in the extremely dry litter in nearby bush is  something to ponder on.  To say thank you, v.ery much, to the volunteer firemen,  from Gibsons and area, Port Mellon and Sechelt for their efforts  in keeping the blaze from spreading does not seem, enough. What  is needed is some action to help the firemen in their respective  areas to be able to fight fires even better than they did Bal's  block blazet.  A suggestion, published in last week's Coast News, that  a women's auxiliary to the fire department be established, to  t' . .  help them raise funds for minor requirements which would not  cost too much money, is a sound one and it should be furthered  immediately. If a meeting place is required the Coast Nefws offers  its office for the organization meeting.  One point brought out as the result of conditions the firemen faced in fighting the fire is tti'at more and larger hose is required. We have plenty of water not too far from the average  large building but the department lacks the means to get the water to the upper levels. .  Apparently the motorized equipment of the fire depart-  ment is capable of pumping the required water tout it has not  the hose to convoy it from the dock area to the scene of a fire.  Some people claim the department should have about 2,000 feet  of two-and-a-half inch hose for this purpose, then by its use and  having got the water on a level with the.fire it could be broken  down by hose attachments into more than one stream to play on  any fire.  Port Mellon fire department when it arrived on the scene  revealed this situation to local firemen. With the pumper on the  dock and an intake sucking up Water into a big hose, it was pushed to the required level where it really supplied powerful  streams of water. i  Reluctant dragons  Sunshine Coast vistors are naturally privileged to some  extent. They get leeway, because they are new to conditions.  There is one condition to which most are definitely new, and that  is the forest fire' hazard:^'  What brings ���up iti�� subject is that in the Sechelt Forestry  park, part of the forest region of this area, various visitors camping there had what might be termed open fires without a hose  being available in case it spread- During the fire hazard season,  those people who live here cannot get a permit to have a fire and  if they do have a fire, a hose must be immediately available to  use if needed.  'Phone calls around the various government departments  resulted in a frustrating session fori one individual who found  no one really had very much to do with the situation.  To regard visitors as being more careful generally than  people living on the spot is hardly fair to local people who realize only too well the dangers involved. If there is a forest closure  (it should be 100 percent and that 100 percent should include everybody.  We read and hear of the wonderfully precious natural resource we have in our forests. We have advice on the radio, and  TV about being careful with matches and the wood products companies send out quantities of anti-fire material from their _>ublic  (relations departments yet when it comes to responsibility government departments are reluctant dragons except when it comes to  collecting taxes. Reluctance then becomes enthusiasm.  ENTRY rccM  GIBSONS ANNUAL FAIR  Please enter my name in the following classes. I agree  to abide by the rules. Enclosed find entry fee.

In 1901 the B.C: government  enacted legislation for issue of  pulp licences. In the ensuing  scramble *wo different companies ended up with the "pulp  ' licence and* ownership of the  water power.

An earlier mill existed on the  Somass River in Alberni in  1894 but it closed two years  later. Some writers maintain  it never operated.   .  The Powell River firm built  a company town around its  mill. It expanded until in 1914  a section, named Wildwood, became an independent community. World War I veterans preempted an area known as Michigan. This is known as West-  view today, incorporated ais a  village in 1942. Many fishermen headquarter there. The  village of Cranberry, another  Powell River overflow, developed the same year and also  incorporated.  *    *    *  Texada Island, on the mainland side of the Strait of Georgia, was discovered and'christened ih 1791 toy Spaniard Jose  Maria Narvaez in the schooner  Saturnia. A wandering fisherman, Harry Trim, found iron  ore there 80 years later. His  samples reached the premier,  Amor de Cosmos, who visited  the Island ��*vith S.'P. Moody, of  Moodyville Sawmills. Later, de-  Cosmos went to Ottawa and  London.  There were charges that the  , premier and some key members ofLhis cabinet used their  position to wrest ownership of  the property in the names of  friends when its worth Was  known. A Royal Commission  probed the affair but found insufficient evidence to support  this. The scandal scared off development.  There were proofs however,  of lodes of lead, copper, silver  and gold on the island and  finally a Tacoma man, Edward  Blewett, and New Yorker Whit  ney Treat, formed Van Anda  Copper and Gold Co. and laid  out a townsite.

Int  World War I Texada's population climbed to the thousands,  but;after the war the mines  closed.  Farming developed and lime  quarrying continued and in recent years, iron mining has  started again.  A    pre-emption    filed     by ..  George W.

The property contained  25,000 acres and the underground workings grew to extent over 100 miles of tunneling worked by niore than 1,000  employees. Biggest year for tlie  firm was 1938. At time of writing, closure is threatened.  Tragedies scar Britannia's  history. In i915 a slide covered the camp, killing almost 60  and injuring 22. In 1921, the  Squamish River flooded, dammed itself, then broke free and  descended on; the town in a  wave over 50 feet high. Fifty  homes were washed away, 37  were killed and 15 injured.  One baby was carried out to  salt water,, his cradle caught in  the branches of a tree, and the  child pinioned by branches.  , But he was rescued unhurt, the  only one of his family to survive.  Squamish, at the head of the'  inlet is a logging, farming, mining community, founded as the  site of an Indian mission in  the 1860s by a Father Durieu.  Lumber for his church was  brought from Moodyville  (North Vancouver). The 10,000  acre Squamish Valley is now  being planned as the site of a  future metropolis, a second  mainland deep-sea port. Development would be under auspices of the provincially-owned  PGE .railway. Government  sources have reported several  large companies are considering locating new industries  there.  *    *    *  In 1885 it was colonized by  the same Minnesota Norwegians who finally settled at Bella Coola. Other farmers came  and stayed however, and a post  office was located there in  1891,- and boat connection established with "Vancouver.  In 1893 the first hop ranch  was started and three years  later there was a school. The  Howe Sound, Pembertori Valley, Northern Railway was  built to Squamish in 1909 and  taken over by the PGE in 1913.  The name of the community  was changed to Newport, but  after a contest among school  children, SquamisTi was again  adopted as the name. The railway connected Squamish to  Lillooet in 1915 and now connects with Vancouver. Incorporated in 1948, latest census  gives it a population of 1,292.  ��� Squamish may lead the way  for development of the rest of  the rich coastal area to the  north.  turned to jail after escaping  in order to see his newborn  child had his sentence doubled  It's fortunate his wife didn't  have triplets.  f "J" "*��  Then there was the advertising man "who thought up a  great slogan for a radio program.

BRITISH COLUMBIA  TELEPHONE COMPANY 4    Coast News, Aug.  7, 1958.  (By   William H.   Payne, M.P.)  The sequence of these news  reports has been interrupted  'due to a very heavy program  which has faced me in Ottawa  the past several weeks.  Of major concern to the constituents has been the strike  condition which has disturbed  ferry service to the island and  up-coast. I have devoted a  great part of my time to meetings, urging the necessity of  positive action to bring the  Canadian Pacific coastal ships  back in service. The Black Ball  line is not directly the concern  of the Dominion government.  However, it has been my feeling, and the feeling of the  many of you who have written, that bringing the Canadian Pacific Steamships back into service would set a pattern  which the Black Ball emloy-  ees would follow.  Last Wednesday an act was  brought before parliament  which passed the following  day. Detailsi I will not outline  as these have been fully covered in the daily press. I am  extremely pleased to know  that at long last the coastal  ferry services are back in normal operation.  Also during this period I  ���was pleased to be able to bring  some of the B.C. forestry matters before the mines, forests  and waters committee. It has  been over 20 years since this  committee has held meetings  and it would be'very nearly  25 years since the interests of  British Columbia's major industry have had representations.  Mr,. Ian Mahood�� brought a  most interesting and thoughtful presentation before this  committee which I believe will  lay the groundwork for much  greater participation in future  years by the dominion government in matters concerning research, access road develop  ment, and fire protection to  B.C. forests.  Last Friday the debate on  external affairs was- held., Naturally it was devoted to a very  great extent to conditions in  the Middle East and the proposed forthcoming summit conference.  The minister of external affairs, Hon. Sidney Smith, gave  a broad review of the world  picture in general and a more  specific outline of the Middle  .East. The approach to the problem from all sides of the house  indicated a complete concurrence in the policies followed  by Mr. Smith and 'Prime Minister Diefenbaker with the fast  Eastern  beer  now  available  Labatt's Pilsener and La-  foatt's '50' Ale "will become available in British Columbia at  local prices in the week of August 4, John W. Murray, vice-  president of marketing, Lucky  Lager Breweries Limited, announces. Both Labatt's beer  and Labatt's ale will be the  same as the company's Eastern products. They will be  brewed in the New Westminster plant of Lucky Lager.  Breweries Limited, where  both products have .been undergoing rigid quality tests..  Labatt's were honored some  weeks ago, as recipients of the  highest award for their Pilsener over all major Canadian  beers and ales entered in competition at the 1958 Brussels  World's Fair.  A controlling interest in  Lucky Lager Breweries Limited was recently purchased by  John Labatt Limited to give  the firm national marketing  facilities. '  WILLIAM H. HOWARD  William H. Howard, 64, who  lived in Egmont for 18 years  died July 28. He "leaves his  wife Frances, two sisters, Mrs.  Eva Hoskin and Mrs. Thelma  Ohs of Vancouver. The funeral was held Aug. 1 from Mount  Pleasant Chapel in Vancouver  with burial in Mountain View  cemetery. Graham's Funeral  home was in charge.  moving events of the past ten  days. While my mention of external affairs is but brief, I  can assure you it has taken the  greatest interest of all members from all parts of Canada during the past two weeks  I shall in a later news report  deal with this subject more  fully.  Monday the minister of finance, Hon;. Donald Fleming,  announced a most welcome increase to the pensions and superannuations of civil servants,  members of the armed forces  and R.C.M.P., who retired in  1945 or prior to that year. This  will provide assistance to approximately 15,000 Canadians  who have been suffering from  definite hardships as a result  of increased cost of living in  these post-war years. This is  a matter on Which we have  been pressing for action for a  considerable time. I am sure  it will give help to those who  so urgently require it.

What is the Canada Conversion Loan of 1958?  It is an offer to replace all unmatured 3% wartime  Victory Bonds with new 25-year'4V_% Canada Con?  version Bonds. (Other bonds of shorter term, bearing  interest rates of 4)4%, 3%% and 3% are also available.)  -  2. Why is the Government making this conversion offer?  In order to reorganize the national debt on a longer  \ term basis and thus reduce the volume of Government  refinancing over the next few years. There is widespread  public and business agreement that this is a sensible  idea and will help protect the soundness of the Canadian  dollar. \  3. What interest will I receive on the new bonds?  On the 25-year bonds the interest rate is 4V&%���this is  ; 50% greater than the old Victory Bond rate. The in-  ��� crease on the 14-year and the 7-year bonds is also  ; substantial.  \     A  :��� -  4. As-a Victory Bond holder, will I be required to make  any additional payment? v  1 No. On the contrary, you will receive an immediate  [cash adjustment.  5. Do I have to convert my Victory Bonds?  You may, if you wish, hold your Victory Bonds until  j maturity and on the due date you will be paid their  , full face value. The Conversion Loan offer is open only  to Victory Bond holders; and the "right" to convert  ��� gives Victory Bonds a special value until the offer  J expires. This is because there are many people trying  j to buy them in order to invest in the new bonds.  /  6. What will be the total of my cash adjustment?  It will depend on the type of exchange. For example, a  $500.8th. Victory Bond exchanged for a $500 Conversion ,  Bond paying 4V^% will give you $8.75 in cash immediately. This includes earned interest.  7. Does this offer apply to Canada Savings Bonds and  other Government of Canada Bonds?  No. This offer is limited to unmatured wartime Victory  Loan Bonds only. .  * ���' ���      *  8. What steps should I take if I am away from home on  vacation and wish to take advantage of this offer?  You should write immediately to your bank, investment  dealer, stockbroker, trust or loan company, requesting  literature and application forms.   ,  9. Does it matter that the Victory Bond I hold is very  ��� small? . '   ' *  Every holder of a Victory Bond, even though the amount  held may be only $50r should take advantage of this,  offer. It is in his best interests as well as in the best  interests of Canada.  10. How long is this offer open?

On our  way out of Ostend We have a  glimpse of the German defences, ��� still in position ��� heavy  gun sites, almost touching each  other along the shore for1 several hundred yards. We get to  Brugge in 15 minutes and  change into an older-type train  for Roselare (we knew it as  Roulers) and that trip took  about an hour.  From Roulers to Ypres,  which is now called leper, we  go by bus, rattling down the  "pave" or another hour, and  the first sign that we are back  in the Flanders that we knew  is the name Passchendaele on  the freight shed at the level  crossing. There was absolutely  no trace of war damage there,  or for that matter, anywhere  else in the Salient, and after  leaving Passchendaele we passed through a considerable  town which I was surprised to  find was Zonnebeke.  We rattled down the Zonne^-  beke road to were it joins the  Menin Road about 200 yards  outside Menin Gate, passed  through that wonderful mje-'  morial, kept on through the  Grand Place to the railway .  station at the other end of ;Jhe  town, this being the bus depht  too.

This has been  done, except during the German occupation, since shortly  after the erection of the memorial. Years ago, over a thousand people used to turn up to  this ceremony, but now only  about 20 or 30, which is quite  understandable when you consider that the youngest men to  have fought in the 1914 war  must now be about 60.  The next morning was fine  and warm, so we started off up  the line first calling at the Imperial Graves Commission office to see if I could get the  location of the grave of a boy  who had been at school with  me, and we got the reference  in a ew minutes for Sanctuary  Wood cemetery. You will hard-  lp believe it, but the Menin  Road is now a six-lane blacktop highway and at Hell Fire  Corner there are two gas station, Cal-Mex and Esso, aa up-  to-date as anything around  Vancouver.  We had been told to turn  right at Hell Fire Corner and  get to Zillebeke then turn left  there and keep on until we  came to Maple Copse cemetery  and Sanctuary Wood was beside it. We did just that, passing China Wall cemetery and  found Zillebeke completely rebuilt, and made^pur left turn  and got on a cdncr_fe toad, the  same, as? the? Sechelt.. road,  which wound its way along the?'  ridges. And'may I tell you  here, that these ridges, which  seemed such .obstacles, are  about the same slope and  length of rise as from Soames  Point up to Bal's place on the .  Hopkins Road.  It was hot and we had been  walking for two hours and  seemed to be getting nowhere,  so we asked our way and eventually located Sanctuary Wood  This is now a park, planted  with Canadian maples, and  with a maple lined avenue  fron^ the park out to Hooge. In  the middle of the park i_ a  memorial situated in a circle,  25 yards wide-, planted in heather. One of the -war graves  men told me that they couldn't  get the heather to grow, at  first, so. they dug out the earth  to the depth of five feet around  the memorial, and found a com  plete dressing station underneath.  Sanctuary   Wood    cemetery  was close by and we found the  grave for which we were looking, that of James Pearson, a  RugSby and Cricket International  many  times  for   Scotland.  ���Jimmy   P.   asi he  was known  was a   private in the Donky  Ninth (Royal Scots) and in the  line in May 1915 volunteered  to go down to a spring to fill  the water-bottles and while doing so was killed by a sniper.  6    Coast News, Aug.  7, 1958.

Old-Fashion Tea was a pleasant affair.  The ladies entered the spirit of  the event and some costumes  showed ingenuity, thought and  imagination. The ladies in  their long dresses and shawls  of olden daysmust have suffered terribly from the heat. But  all despite discomfort wore  smiles, enjoying "every minute  of it.  At a signal from the convenor and president, Mrs.  Cambourne, the* costumed ladies paraded around -the hall.  Leading the parade was Queen  Victoria,' portrayed by Mrs.  Edwards, very well copied.  Then the others Who followed  were Mrs,. Cambourne as Pris-  r cilia, very well gotten up; Mrs.  Ashworth as Sweet Nell of  Old Drury lovely feathered hat  ���and all; Mrs. LaFond as a Dresden Shepherdess in a very pret  ty gown and hat, very becoming too.  Mrs. Attfield in an old-time  costume was ticket seller. Mrs.  S. Bracewejl was; another noticeable    character    with : her  long flowing hair of that day,  quite a change from the well-  dressed but short hair of today.  Mrs. Cole's dress was styled  in the time of the Mayflower  Pilgrims.  Mrsi. Fyles and Mrs. Brough-  ton were gracious in their  "loviely lace-shawls and fine  lace and poured tea at the  beautfully appointed tea table.  Mrs. Henniker was a serviteur  in the old-time beflowered cap  and tiny tea-apron. Mrs. Allan  was quite in style of the Poke  Bonnet period. Mrs. W. Lissi-  man, although not a m'ember  of the unit, was helping and  quite old-time 'partyish' even  to the hoop-skirt, shawl and  tiny parasol. Mrs. A.-C- Grant  looked charming in her black  lace jacket. The three ladies  who worked so cheerfully behind the scene in the kitchen,  Mrs. Eckford in her brown  bonnet and costume, also of  the Mayflower period, and  Mrs. Wiskin and Mrs. Clou.  The husbands also entered  into the spirit of the thing.  Mr. Attfield represented a gentleman of the road, and Mr.  Cambourne" as  a  Well-dressed ���  gentleman of the early times  in a cutaway coat, and large  watch chain ornamenting his  waistcoat, also the ibowler hat  and heavy beard, which he  finally shaved off owing to the  heat.  The event was 'well attended  in spite of the heat. The articles for sale were soon disposed of as was the home cooking which vanished very quickly after the sale was opened.  The tea-tables looked very attractive, centered with small  baskets of sweet - smelling  flowers, and the variety of eatables and goodies were really  wonderful.  It must ha vie taken the la-  dies quite a while to make the  lovely pancakes, scones and  cakes and pies, etc. And when  one thinks of the heat of these  past weeks and the time it  took to bake, there is more  credit coming t0 them.  %   LOGGING, Etc.

Yet, collective bargaining and  union protection have become  desireable features of our way  of life. .;,- ���-..', ,.  ? There is however, one discrepancy in my opinion, which.  should be, and ?;*ln. sortie -cases  is being rectified? This discrepancy i_ a fault of our laws;  Union officers and union members are rarely held responsible for their actions or lack  of proper action. Many times a  third party is injured by strikers, pickets and sio called jurisdictions.  Unions have been known to  vote for a strike, and yet not  strike. Such an occurrence as  this is interpreted as utter ir-  responsilbility by other people.  No one should talk of negotiating in good faith when they  resort to such tactics.  , My opinion is that the statutes should be revised to subject unions and union members to such charges as breach  of contract, misrepresentation  of facts, misleading information, alienation of funds and  creating hazards to the public.  I suggest that unions and /or  union members found guilty of  law breaking toe disenfranchised forthwith for terms ranging from six months to six  years.  If  such   laws were  on the  statute books,. the marine engineers and masters would  have hesitated before subjecting themselves to charges.  As things are now, the unions are pressure groups, jockeying for position arid favors  for beyond their just rights;.  Employers too are responsible for failing to take a firm  stand at the right times. In a  sense their actions and policies  : often paralleled that of the  ���toiohs. However, >they' have  been and are paying part of  the fiddler's cost.  Making the unions responsible for their actions through  the process of courts should in  no way hinder collective bargaining or job protection for  the workers. ���   :  Harold Hunter.  Robert D.

Mr. Walter Sallis the minister  in charge of the ceremony pointed out that since marriage was  originally inaugurated by the  Creator, and had His blessing,  the    covenant   entered  into  bv  married persons involves not  two, but three parties. It was  ncited by Mr. Sallis that marriage failures often are the result of failure to recognize the  fact that both. are responsible  to Someone else besides just  each other.  The entire ceremony was  really enjoyed by the over 80  in attendance, and it might be  added that the reception that  followed was equally enjoyable.  The-couple left for the Interior  for their honeymoon.  *    *    *  DEAN���SWAIN  A wedling of local interest  took place at Beaconsfield United Church, July 12 when Shar-  ren, daughter of Mr. and Mrs.  W.
