This just isn't cricket!  Premier Bennett has announced he has wiped out the net  debt of the province and will have some money to hand out in  various forms in the months and he hopes years to come. This  sounds very, nice and will be welcome providing the strings attached to such handouts are not too involved.  Perhaps it might not be cricket to refer to the brief submitted by Hon. W.A.C. Bennett to the plenary session of the  Federal-Provincial conference in Ottawa, Oct. 3, 1955. In that  "brief as printed on page eight one can read this under the heading Municipal Borrowing:  "Having regard to the urgent need for capital improvements in municipalities and to the retarding effect of high inter-  fist rates on such public investment, it is recommended that such  consideration be given to improved credit facilities which will  make possible municipal borrowing at low interest rates."  Perhaps again it might not be cricket to suggest here is  an opportunity for Premier Bennett to carry out an idea he advocated in the federal field. Mr. Bennett could borrow money  more cheaply than the average municipality or school board and  by so doing would help keep down the municipal taxes. Instead  he prefers to place municipalities in the position where they  have to borrow money some of which they should be receiving  from the provincial government in order to maintain their solvency).  Instead of giving the municipalities their provincial grant  in monthly instalments over a nine month period he could give  it them in a lump sum when needed, mostly at the beginning of  the work season for municipal projects. He could also be more  prompt in honoring education department commitments.  Announcing with fanfare the province is free of a net  debt burden is an achievement but it would be a much greater  achievement if officials of school boards, municipalities, hospital boards and others dependent on government grants were not  lurking on the sidelines with hollow laughs bouncing from the  dollar to dollar which they should have but have not..  However it is to be expected quite  a  few people  will  praise Mr. Bennett for reducing.the. net ..debt then raise cainwith ,  local tax collectors because local, taxes are showing the stress  of expansion because Mr. Bennett has wiped out the net debt.  There is no way in which some people can gain from government-giving without others suffering from government-taking.  Greatest challenge facing Canadian labor and management during 1959 is the keeping of costs to a point where they  don't price Canadian-made articles out of "the competitive export  market.  In some form or another, labor costs account for about 80  per cent of the price of any consumer purchase in Canada.  Most tax increases in Canada in the last 10 years have  been engendered by u; defence cot..* cr (2) increasing cocial  securityi schemes.  l8 m. T��- Ht-M Ttlhw. fat.

Caesar Colclough, chief justice  of Prince Edward Island from  1807 to 1812, and 'Thomas Trem-  lett, chief justice of Newfoundland from 1803 to 1812.* Colclough, an Irish barrister appointed to the Prince Edward  Island post for services rendered  during an Irish rebellion in 1798,  served during a period of strife  between landed proprietors and  settlers. He was accused of taking sides with the proprietors  and at the request of the House  of Assembly was suspended by  the Governor. He then exchang-  *��r> places with Tremlett, but er-  countered similar difficulties in  his new post and retired after  three turbulent years. Tremlett,  a native Newfoundlander,, came  into conflict with the island's  merchant oligarchy, who petitioned the Governor to remove  "him, specifying three main  charges of injustice. Tremlett's  reply to the charges was: "To  the first charge, Your Excellency, I answer that it is a lie;  to the second charge I say that  it is a damned lie, and to the  third charge it is a damned infernal lie, and, Your Excellency,  I have no more to say." Tremlett made the switch to Prince  Edward Island but, like Colclough, fared no better in his  new post.  Statistics show that the greatest use cf personal savings by  Canadians is for new housing.

Municipalities backs up  municipal claims that the provincial government is dodging  its full financial responsibilities  to  the municipalities.  "The UBMC has therefor called  on the provincial government  for a completely new formula  for sharing tax revenues ��� a  formula that would relieve the  individual property owner from  tax burdens over which he can  exercise no effective local control.  Stated simply, the government  as asked to pay for all services  ���which are basically provincial or  ���federal-provincial in scope, leaving the municipalities to pay for  essentially local services.  Basis fo this request is a 25-  page finance policy report which  was prepared by a nine-man  special committee of the UBMC.  Committee members were Major General C. A- P. Murison,  reeve of North Cowichan and  president of the UBCM; Mayor  J:��*E. Fitzwater, Kamloops; Mayor  P. B. Scurrah, Victoria; Reeve  ���Peter Jenewein, Maple Ridge;  Aid.

Thiis committee has made no  etatement on its findings to  date. But municipal leaders hope  Mr. Black will have something  to report when he attends the  UBCM annual convention Sept.  16-18 in Kelowna.  Real property taxes, the report  notes, when averaged across  Canada, represents a smaller proportion of personal income today than they did before the  war.  While this  may  be taken  to   indicate    that   municipalities  are not taxing  property  to t-ie  limit of its capacity, it has little  bearing on a policy  whose purpose   is   not   so  much to keep  down property taxes  as  to   ensure their use for purposes for  which they are best suited, and  that their amount is subject to  control by those who pay them.  The   report   shows   that   property    taxes    are    over-strained  and in danger  of a breakdown  because they are called on to do  too   many   jobs  for the  senior  gvernment. These jobs have become so large that the tax is already   over-burdened   before  it  can   be   used   for  urgent local  tasks.  In the words of Gen. Murison:  "What the UBC_��I has propposed  to the provincial government is  simply this: Stop drawing on the  property tax to pay for provincial and federal-provincial services, leave it to us."  If tha provincial govenment  willj'stand on its own feet, without "help fom us," Gen. Murison  said, "we will be able to stand  <*n our feet without help from  Victoria."

(Article  2)  The Johnston twins, Roger and  Ron, sons of Magistrate and Mrs.  Andy Johnston of Sechelt continue their experiences with  UNEF, the United Nations Expeditionary Force in the Gaza  strip by attending a drumhead  church service on the camp parade ground with all troops in  dress uniforms.  Referring to the fact they are  able to photograph anything  from camels to chameleons starts  a train of thought which goes  as far as stink bugs. Chameleons  run about six to eight inches  long and change color according  to their background. Desert rats  are lumped along with beetles  and spiders with the spiders  faaving a two-inch body with legs  about three to four inches long.  They squeal when stepped on.  Beetles are the stink bugs. The  most personal of all insects is  the Rajah Turtle an infamous  bedbug which causes the medical  corps to continually fumigate  sleeping quarters.  Roger explains he is teaching  three men to play the guitar  and an invitation to play at the  Norwegian canteen concert was  accepted on the basis there would  be plenty of fun.  A    description   of where  the  camp is reveals it is about five  miles from Rafah and three miles  from    the    Mediterranean    sea.  Rafah   is   on   the   Egypt-Isreal  border, near Jerusalem also Mf.  Sanai where Moses received the  Ten Commandments on a tablet.  Talking about payday the lads  reported they did not get much  in the form of pay but what they  did get went a long way as prices  in most cases were low compared to many other places. Roger  describes    his    weekly    haircut  which  is really a  singe by an  Egyptian which is said, so he reports, to be good for the hair.  Back to music ��� the boys invited to the Norwegian canteen  ���found the Norwegians liked  Western style music and some  rock and roll and they found it  funny to hear their songs sung  in Norwegian. Both have accepted invitations to sing and play  pome instrumental at a coming  UNEF concert which they expected would prove interesting.  The Nasser Special runs on a  railway past the camp from  Cairo to Alexander taking about  10 hours for the 150 mile run.  Then commenting on the fact  the Egyptians outnumber the  Israeli four to one the odds,  Roger said, were in favor of the  Israeli troops. The feeling existed that Nasser's soldiers and  merchants as well were unrealistic in their ideals about Nasser.

Owing to an accident to a jeep  turning a corner too fast, throwing Roger and three other men  out and injuring them slightly,  Roger was unable to accompany  Ron on a trip of four days to  Jerusalem.  After a two-hour ride by plan:.*  the Jerusalem party had dinner  at the Lawrence hotel in Jerusalem, Jordan. Six of the boys  went by car with a guide to  Bethany, saw the tomb of Lazarus and the home of Mary and  Martha. Ron posed along with  the high priest of Samaria and  the oldest Bible in the world. He  also purchased some ancient Roman, Byzantine and Egyptian  coins from the high priest. As  the people were generally poor  the temple was supported largely by donations.  Next afternoon they toured  the Mount of Olives, the Garden,  of Gethsamane and encompassed  the walls of Jerusalem taking  many pictures. During the same  afternoon they toured the Valley of Thieves past the Inn of  the Good Smaritan on to Gideon  and the ruins of old Jericho.  At the River Jordan they turn  ed to the Red Sea where they  swam in water 27 percent salt.  On the return to Jerusalem they  passed a refugee camp in which  there were 85,000 people.  The visit into the Holy Land  area coincided with the Christmas season and the party visited  on foot the 14 Stations of the  Cross including a visit to the  quarters used by Pontius Pilate,  the place of the Cross, the pillar where Jesus was lashed, the  tomb of Jesus and the tomb of  Mary as well as the path taken?  by Jesus to the Cross.  In Bethlehem they visited the  place where Jesus was born on  Christmas Eve and attended a  church service. Christmas Day  they visited the famous Wailing  Wall and mosques and cathedrals.  Ron records the fact the boys  are receiving copies of the Coast  News at Rajah and noted that  the Hot Shots, the Sechelt orchestra known for its spontaneous music in which the Magistrate and Mrs. Johnston play.  In the Norwegian hospital  Roger reports there were five  Bedouin children who had been  healed of their sickness weeks  ago but the Norwegians liked  them so much they were keeping them as long as they could.  (To be continued)  Girl best log-roller  By PAT WELSH  Redroofs Beach and Country  Club members held their annual regatta Sat., Aug. 1. Commencing at 2:30 p.m. a parade  of decorated boats sailed past  the reviewing stand where the  commodore, Past President  Harry; Pearson took the salute  Three outstanding entries  were the Fire Boat, H. Merri-  lees, Fern Gulf, T. Campbell,  and Kyak, C. Dalton. The fire  boat complete with pump and  hoses sprayed jets of water  over the Fern Gulf in a realistic manner almost drowning  the crew at times. The Kyak  made by John and Jeremy Dalton had as passenger Mrs. M.  Dalton. Numerous small boats  manned by their young owners  caused much amusement as  they endeavoured to keep in  line.  Swimming matches, a long  and varied program, consisted  of races for girls and boys from  7 to 15 and under, diving, underwater swimming, row boat  race��, log rolling, etc. Ice  cream was served to all the  landed a 36 pounder. Lee  children, who, like Oliver  Twist, kept coming back fpr  more.  The regatta committee included  chairman,   Mike   Jack  son, program and publicity,  Margaret Wright; starter, Chris  Dalton; floats and course, Tommy Campbell; judge^ Linda  Adams Hunt; boat parade, Ross'  McAllister and recorder, Kayw  Fredrickson.  The weather was ideal and  the beach jammed with spectators. The small fry, who all  swim like fishes, were in their  element as they swam, dived  and participated in all the events. Log rolling caused a flutter, the winner being a girl.  The next thing of interest  will be the fishing derby which  should have been held with  the regatta because the number of fish caught around Nor-  West Bay has been fantastic.  Stan Moffat of Halfmoon Bay  Straight and Stuart LeFeaux  brought in some extremely  large fish. Ken McPherson of  Winnipeg, guest of Alan  Greene Jr., landed two beauties, beginners' luck. Small  Peter LeFeaux caught an 18  lb. spring. Almost everyi boat  had fish.

The weather was chilly with  a gusty, wind, necessitating  wearing of jackets and sweaters. In fact one especially vigorous gust took a beautiful  lawn umbrella on a venturesome sail over the shrubbery.  Included among, the guests  were two delightful miniature  French poodles, one black and  one white, belonging to Dr.  Hylton and these pleased the  younger folk. Added to the natural beauty of the spacious garden were the young ladies in  pretty summery frocks who  served the guests.  Thanks is extended to those  ladies who volunteered for service in the kitchen, at the home  cooking counter and at tables  where tickets were sold for  various draw��.  Mr. Cecil Chamberlin, inspector for the branch took  charge at the gate. The winning  tickets were drawn byl the inspector's tiny daughter, Juan-  ita, whose eyes were moist  when she found that the winning ticket for a dainty doll  didn't correspond with hers.

Lyle Wicks, minister of commercial transport and minister  of labor.  The new department will  bring under one authority all  matters relating to commercial  transport so more attention  can be given to needs of the  industry-; and the public; uniformity and equity in the administration of the law; protection  of highways from abuse more  closely controlled and safety  measures adequately administered.  Enforcement cornerstone of  the department is its weigh  stations. These small cream  and green colored buildings  are located just off the highways at strategic places and  are used to weigh trucks and  loads.  The weigh stations protect  the highways from excessive  size and weight of commercial  transport and reduce traffic  hazards from improperly loaded or unduly large commercial  vehicles. They ensure that  commercial vehicle operators  pay proper license fees, diesel-  powered commercial vehicles a  comparable highway-use tax  per mile to gasoline-powered  ones, and collect overweight  or oversize fees. The stations  also assiy; in the enforcement,  of motor carrier regulations.  Portatfe weighing devices '  are also used by the department, consisting of a trailer  and scales to be used between  permanent stations as required.  Regulations with respect to  persons operating from outside  the province came into effect  June 15. The intent of the regulations  is  to  protect   British  Columbia operators from unfair competition from operators who paid very little license fees to the province.  Non-resident operators now  may obtain only two permits  during any one license year  and each permit is restricted to  one trip. After two permits  have been obtained for any  one vehicle, the non-resident  operators must pay the full  license fee for the remainder of  the year.  At the last session of the  legislature new license fees for  commercial vehicles were established. They will be effective March 1, 1960.  Provision has been made  vr-herpby farmers owning  trucks under three tons will  pay the same annual license  feer, as thev did in 1959 providing truck and load does not  exceed 15,000 pounds. For occasional loads, overweight permit^ can be obtained.  Oversize and overweight per  mits can be obtained at all mo-  to*- vehicle offices, government  agents' offices, at weigh stations of the department and at  the department's offices; in Victoria and Vancouver.  Provision has been made  for lodging trucks crossing  highways to obtain permits by  the month on a special basis.  There are a large number of  commercial vehicles in the province which do not travel on  public highways and. therefore  do not come under the provisions of the Motor Vehicle Act  or Commprcial Transport Act.  These vehicles are regulated  by the Industrial Transportation Act. They) are required to  have air brakes that meet high  safety s'-andardra and to maintain a los book record of servicing and repairs. Truck operators are given special training  courses and are required to  pass a driver's test before being allowed to drive.  Roberts Creek  By  Mrs.  M.

The new company ?  will be known as Forest Industries Flying Tankers Ltd. and  the aircraft used will be four  Martin  Mars flying  boats,   to *  be obtained from the U.S. Navy  They are among the largest of  their kind in the world.  The plan calls for the four-  engined Mars ��� each with a  v.'ingspan. of 200 feet and an  overall length of 120 feet ��� to  be fully equipped with tanks, \  intake systems and dropping ���  equipment to bomb fires that  break out in the timber areas  of the six sponsoring companies.

Multiple  Listing Service.  "initiated last year the service is aimed at providing a  broad market for selected real ;  estate such as resorts, hotels, ,  ranches, motels, commercial  businesses and industrial properties.  Under B.C. M.L.S., complete  details, including photographs,  of a property listed are forwarded to participating realtors in all parts of B.C., providing a large market for properties which usually are of a  size or kind for which there is  not a good local market.  the following firms: B.C. Forest Products Ltd., Canadian  Forest Products Ltd., MacMit-  lan and Bloedel Ltd., Powell  River Co. Ltd., Tahsis Co. Ltd.,  and Western Forest Industries  Ltd.  A leading Canadian aviation  figure, Air Vice-Marshall Leigh  F. Stevenson of Vancouver had  a part in the organization of  the plan.  "The water capacity of the  Mars when refitted will be  about 7,000 gallons," Mr. Stevenson said. "This compares  with the capacities ranging  from 100 to 700 gallons of aircraft in B.C. now equipped  with  'scoop'  or 'belly' tanks."  Spokesmen for the companies said that a plane the size  of the Mars is critically needed in B.C. A large number of  the hundreds of fires that break  out each year are in mountainous inaccessible territory that  takes days to reach on foot.  One of the greatest needs is to  find a method of extinguishing  or controlling fires before they  get a chance to spread.  "Loading will be done . by  means of scoops that will fill  the tanks inside the plane with  water as it skims over the surface of a lake or the sea at high  taxiing speed," he said.  "When the aircraft reaches  the fire, the entire load will be  dropped almost instantaneous-  lj- to give the greatest concentration. This method permits a  quick turn-around when suitable water areas are available.  It could mean the application  of a third of an inch of water  on an acre of forest every* 15  minutes ��� the equivalent of a  very  heavy rainfall."  Mr. Stevenson said that water bombing with aircraft is  now being developed in B.C.,  and has been used with good  results in Ontario and other  forest areas over the last few  years.
