Steve Howlett of the B.C.  Power Commission reported  the reason for the! long power  outage on Thursday night and  Friday morning last' was that  the Clowholm River had gone  on a rampage and almost demolished the power station  there.  Crews, were flown in from  Nanaimo, and with pumps of  the Forestry department, sandbags, and boardirig up of windows, got enough water out  to resume operations.  ,-A't one. time, the water  around the plant was so high  a large log floating smashed  in the upper part of a- window  The switch yard was undermined and; washed out, transformers were tipped against  each other, and riiany ��� more  occurrences, any one of which  was ienough to disrupt the  whole system.  The earlier breaks on Thurs  day were caused by four trees  crashing across the lines near  Roberts Creek. '  There will be a short break  ' in the Power on Sunday, from  8-10 a.m. to    permit    further  repairs  to  the plant/  Crews  are    still    working  cleaning   silt from   the   interior of the plant    and    equipment.    ' ��� -  The short power shut off  on Saturday afternoon was  made to permit the department of public works.crew.to  put in their temporary bridge  at Mission Creek.  After a sleepless Wednesday night ** worrying aboil!  power lines, Steve Howlett,  B.C. Power Commission manager at Sechelt. did not call  out his crews for actual breaks  until late Thursday afternoon.  In spite of the distances separating the .breaks, the power  was off for about four, hours.  The break early) Friday  morning lasted longer, but was  repaired and power was available again around 8 a.m. V  Coinciding with Young Canada Book week, Gibsons Lib-  aray Week will be from Nov.  1 to 20.  v At Gibsons, the Public Lib-  rary will hold Open House  on ^Wednesday Nov. 16 from  3 to 5 p.m.,.to give everyone  an oppertunity to visit *and inspect the new premises and  the, booteS contained. .Librari-  apfr will be-on hand with in-  formattcra. .regarding both.  ^Saturday;.'

Thirty new books for the  younger readers have been  added to those on hand, and  more  are   coming.  The public Library in Gibsons; built by the, Kiwanis  Club, and - operated by the  Gibsons Library _toard, is the  culmination of many years of  interest in reading in the Gibsons district. .   --  The firsts available -knowledge places the-Gibsons Library in the Gibsons Heights  post office, which occupied a  store. belonging to L.S.

Nevertheless it will  have to go soriie to beat the  13.36 inches recorded for November of last year.  Hills flooded  Thursday morning when  the culvert below Palmers  apartments in Gibsons proved  too small to handle the water  rushing down the ditch, the  stream flowed across the pavement 7 and under Hill's Machine shop, where it undermined the cement approach and  flowed en down into the basement stock room.  ..A new concrete approach  to.the shop is necessary, and  the basement has been cleaned. Much- of the stock was  salvagable.  In connection with well  water which appears to be  ^contaminated, Mr. Williams,  provincial sanitary inspector,  .advises that it be chlorinated.  If the water is discolored only  he advises .boiling before use.  - Traffic on the Sunshine  Coast is almost back to normal. The temporary1 bridge  over Mission Creek is in service arid, the detour via the  lower Road by-passes the.  wash out near Roberts Creek.  Traffic to Port Mellon was  resumed earlier; when the  damaged bridge beyond Hopkins Landing was made passable.  The bridge over Mission  Creek at Wilson % Creek became unsafe for Vehicles about  3yyptui*^Thursday ���; afternoon;,  about 4.30 p!m; School buses  took the children as far as the  bridge from the High school  at Gibsons, and they were met  on the other side by other  buses, on Wednesday. By evening the creek had swollen to  river proportions, and cribs  which were being laid for a  new bridge at that point  were washed out a he same  ime. .  The bridge over Hastings  Creek on the, Bort ��� Mellon  Road had a deep Hvashout at  eoch end,, and the structure  had been moved on its footings, rendering it impassable.  Men going to work at the  pulp mill at Port Mellon were  met at the other side of the  bridge. They crossed on a  footplank.  The culverts used to replace  the bridge on the Upper Road  tp Roberts Creek, which washed out in November 1954 were  washed out again,  . At several points on Thursday, notably east    of    Wilson  Creek and along the upper  road east of Roberts Creek',  water over a foot Seep coursed  along the highway for as  much as a hundred  yards.  f Families evacuated from  the flooded section of Wilson  Creek were Mrs. Henderson,  Mr. and Mrs. Russell, Mr. arid  Mrs. McLoed, the Littles,  Levitt Wrights, Reynolds, Burtons, Gilbertsons, Mutters,  Phairs and Ericksons.  People of the neighborhood,  including Mrs. L.S. Jacksoii,  Mrs.    Forbes,     Mrs..    George  sheins; Nygretts,^ Johnsons and  Stckes, took the families into  their homes until flooded  houses could be. cleaned and  dried and made habitable  once  more.  Some  of-the  less  LOGGERS, SHOAL BAY RES  (Continued  on   Page  5)  "leaders needed  The urgent need for leaders for the Brownies and  Girl Guides was stressed at  a recent meeting of the  Ladies Auxiliary to those  groups. More mothers are  needed in this'Association.  Eight members were on hand  to elect Mrs. Sergant vice-  chairman.  The association moved to  send ari open invitation to  the PTA as original sponsors of the first Gibsons Guides and Brownies, to attend  the Presentation and Flying-  Up Ceremonies on Monday,  Nov. 14. at 7.30 in the Legion  Hall.  Ems  At the public hearing Monday on the Gibsons Resident  Loggers Association applica-"  tion for a land use permit for  dumping and booming logs in  Shoal Bay witnesses appeared  for both sides and presented .  reasons for and against.  The  meeting   was  held     in  Gibsons' School Hall  ~in    the-  afternoon    with    E.F.    Little,  government agent at  Vancouver    as    commissioner,    Fred  Holland representing  the loggers   and Mrs.    F.M.    Doxee,  secretary     of   .! the     Resident,  Beach  Property   Owners'   Association. Assisting  Mr.  Little  were  D.  Borthwick,   assistant;  superintendent    of    land     at  Victoria and M. Matinuik. provincial lands  inspector,    Vanr  couver.  The loggers presented, th.eir  side of the case first and Robert Burns village clerk, appearing' as a private citizen  explained how the bay had  been used for log storage  since  1900  because it was    a  natural shelter. He added that  the income from this_ operation was far greater than that  of any other source in this  area.  Robert Jackson of    Jackson  Brothers    Logging     Co.,    explained  the situation  at    Wil-  1 son Creek booming ground and  (said that owing to the uncertain   lease   situation   no   work  couldbe dene to improve conditions and there was now no  room  for  a    private    logger.  He was   of the     opinion     no  other  logs    than    MacMillans  could be handled  there.  ���  Robert    LeFeuvre    of     the  Farmers    Institute    reiterated  the previous stand  of the  institute    that   . the     booming  ground was necessary in Shoal  Bay.  Stan Tyson, log operator,  said logs he had at Wilson  Creek broke up in a storm  owing to the breakwater being suitable. He expressed  the view that it was not profitable for  loggers  to  operate  from Wilson Creek.  Wally* Peterson, Village commissioner appearing as representative of the commission  said the commission was try-  irig to encourage industry in  Gibsons and the logging in  Shoal Bay was cne of the  industries Gibsons has. He  said the bathing beach was  not good and. most of the  swimming. was done off the  booms anyway. He could not  see any harm in having loggers in Shoal Bay. If they  were removed it would cut  off quite an industry. No  children would get hurt there  any more so than children do  get hurt else where,  Tom Davey, Logger expressed the view Shoal. Bay was  the' safest place in which to  boom. He did not regard it  as practical that logs should  be dumped anywhere else. The  commissioner asked what it  would, cost to improve Shoal  Bay logging grounds to which  Mr. Davey replied they would  first have to have' a longer  lease so   they  could   put in a  proper dump. The cost would  be low owing to voluntary  labor,  he said.  With low cost at Shoal Bay  what would it cost for a  booming ground at Twin  Creek, Mr. Little asked. Mr.  Davey replied: about $6,000.  Mrs. Doxee asked if as a business man he should not put up  money in order to make mon-  ey;Mr. Davey answered that  he would have to and he had  done so up to' the .present.  Walter Nygren, representing  the Board of Trade said the  reason the board was in favor of retaining the booming  ground was a purely business  proposition. Ed. Feidler representing the Canadian Legion  also threw in the Legion's  support for retention of- the  booming ground.  Mr.. Holland presented his  views and was of the opinion  a yearly lease would be better  so as to make any work done  on the booming ground profitable. He argued there should  be facillities available so the  loggers could dump into    the  water on a ten foot tide. He  said it would cost cost twice  as much to dump at Twin  creeks owing to the longer  haul.  Asked by the commission if  the !'��� loggers    association    had  any  indemnification   fcr   residents if damage was    caused,  Mr.  Holland  said     he     could  not find  any way to  get such  coverage. If such indemnification was in the lease the association    would    have    to    be  bonded to cover it, he added.  The   commissi.ner   referring  to  the previous report on the  situation said  that    Mr    Holland  apparenly  had  no     confidence  in  the report     which  the    commissioner    said    was  made  by two competent men.  Mr.  Holland  replied that     he  would not say that but he could  say  the loggers  did not    feel  the alternatives   offered   were  suitable.  He  added    the    loggers might not    be    able     to  stay in   business  at  other  log  booms. At one boom    offered  their operations would be limited and at another the prices  offered were not profitable, he  said.  Mrs. Doxsee in opening the  case for the resident owners  said she could not. understand the attitude of the village commission after making  promises that no commercial  venture would be allowed in  the area.  Mrs. Doxsee said the lease  now expired was granted on  condition other areas were  surveyed which was done and  if the loggers wait much longer there will be none left for  them.  Mrs. Kenny, old    age    pensioner,     said     she    was     not  against  the  loggers.   She   wa^.  the mother of a    logger    but  she reported     walls  . cracked,  chimney   damaged   and   dishc s  broken,    she    also     relate.T  how    she    had    to    get    he.>.>  at 2 a.m. one morning to kec  a  large   log     from     smashir  her  premises.

That number will-be increased in the not too distant future.  A factor which has not yet taken a complete hold on the  community is that with growth comes added responsibilities  which must be faced. There will be such problems as a greater  water supply, safer fire protection, better policing, sewerage  and other health problems.  Increased population increases municipal revenue but the problems that come with more people mount at a greater rale than  does the revenue the municipality recieves. Also with an increasing population,  a broader outlook is necessary.  There was discussion at the last village commission meeting  on the subject of Garbage collecting. From it arose remarks  ���fihat the village cannot collect money from a taxpayer for certain services unless that service was actually used by that  taxpayer. The meaning of this is an owner of unimproved;  land within the village does not have to pay anything more  than the taxes on the land.  A quick glance over revenue and expenditure of the village  shows that taxes collected from improved and unimproved  land goes into one pot and can be spent on water j roads,, fire  protection and general expenses, all of whyih the holder of unimproved property moy never use. The owner of a piece' of  land on which a good home cculd be built may never set foot  on Gibsons roads, he may never drink any of. our water,; he may  _iever need the fire department or he may. never cause any of  the general expenses to be used7 Yet the owner of .the land pays  taxes for these, items. ���.,.-.  To return to garbage collecting, is riot the health of this  community something on which the owner of unimproved property capitalizes when the land is sold? The buyer likes the  cleanliness of Gibsons also the general health picture. But  only the user of the garbage system pays for it.. If on the other  of unimproved land has a legitimate complaint which could be  Sand Gibsons had a.reputation for. being untidy, that owner  lodged with the village commission r- and the owner of that  property would not have to contribute any funds for the improvement of garbage disposal so. he could sell, his property at  a profit. It just does not make municipal coimrncn sense.  . Perhaps British Columbia municipal laws should be ���evised  _fecause of jtnel newer conditions' facing t$-e province -ahd.VJthe ;  raunicipaiitiesV A'new look is required into general conditions;  arid some of the legalities that bind municipalities should be  removed so they can face the future with a greater hope. A  wider view of property holders' responsibilities to; municipal  government should be explored. Unimproved land is usually  held for speculation and the profit as a result of that speculation is really built up by the people actually living here and paying taxes and other costs surrounding life under municipal  government. The speculator should pay a share of all costs.  The speculator benefits.  This idea might be radical to British Columbia but before  many years pass there will be more radical items than this become a reality in view cf changing conditions.  IMPORTED HYSTERICS  In the November issue of Liberty, Gordon Sinclair has a  column in which he offers comment on this and that. Regard- .  ing the Grey Cup and. the antics of westerners when in the ;  east, he says: "Without it, (the Grey cup Sgariie), we easterner's  are free of those phony, overhospitable back-slaps whereby synthetic westerners, all done up with cow-puncher's bonnets, go  through the motions of being breezy and wind up being bores.  " Who wants his bones crushed by some horny-handed fugitive from a wheat bin, just because the U.S. team his coaches  hired did better than the U.S. team our coaches hired?

Mr. Holland asked  whether he knew sewerage  was pouring into the bay and  would any medical health officer allow the beach to be-  used by children? Mr. Lawson  , could not see why he would  not.  Mr. Startup mentioned the  zoning whioh allows certain  type homes and he thought  more hemes would be built  there to replace the loss of  village revenues from removal  of the boorriing grounds.

Mr.    Fearn    expressed    the  r opiniori "a certain .clique was  running  this town arid it was  time    something     was     done  about it".  He argued the .village commission was    leaving  itself  open   to   prosecution  as  the  area was classified  as    a  residential   zone.  He  said   the  Board   of Trade  argued  there  would  be  a   tremendous   loss.  Mr. Fearn could not see that  and argued it would cost the  loggers  a bit more to  do the  work at other sites. ���  Mr., A.   C.   Strange   thought  thex village    commission ^ was  more interested in    the    cash  , register than in the welfare of  the people.

She  ���welcomed tlie idea, and from  then until 1952, Mr. and Mrs.  Donaldson as Librarians worked in the front, of Mrs. Nest-  man's living room, and kept  the books in; circulation;.  When Mrs. Nestman sold  her heme in 1952, the Library  was once more homeless.  Mr: S. Trueman and Mr. R.  McNicol sparked the formation of a new library organization and a charter was obtained in December, 1952. The  first .formal.meeting was held  ori March, 30, 1953, when Bes  Peterson was elected President  of the Board, and Dick McKibbin secretary! At that time.  "���here were 13 members Of the  Library Association, now there  are well over 100. \-  The ��� Library was re-opened  in Dick McKibbin's office,  with Miss Jervis, official custodian;- Miss'. Dibie. assistant,  with Mrs Propp. Jean Hague  ; and otherCi-iigh . school girls  have vgiy.eri^*jverq:r/^aluable  assistance also.  Since the granting of the  charter, the Village of Gibsons  Landing has given annual  grarits for the ^purchase of  books, which grants have been  matched by similar ones from  the  Provincial Government.  The Government granted  $300 towards a building fund.  Then the Sunshine Kiwanis  Club took over the fund raising for the balance. Members  of the Club have also donated  their labour, under the able  direction  of Jules  Mainil     to  complete the building.

S. Discovery. Starting time is  2:p.m. if there are any. fans  thinking about making the  trip and it should be a good  game.  The Orphans should be a  lot better than last year as  they have all the players they  used last season as well as adding the services of Dick Reichelt, Bob Douglas and possibly Bob Nygren for some of  the  games.  The basketball league seems  to be very slow getting organized and if it is to operate  successfully the executive had  better come to life.  Soccer practice falls every  Sunday and there is plenty of  room for more players. H.  Roberts zone councillor and  secretary of the softball league is off to the three day B.  C.A.S.A. convention this week  end and he will try to get a  better set-up for the play-offs.  I for one hope he can, there  has been nothing but mixups  the last two years.

Damage to the  building is estimated at about  $1,500 with another $1,000 en  equipment.  It is believed the fire started in a battery charger.  Luckily the blaze did not  break out through the building which enabled the firemen  to get it under control quickly. In all the firemen, were on  the scene about one hour,  making sure it would not  break out  again.  Damage reported included  300 feet of hose, firemen's  helmets and coats, an aluminum ladder, large truck scorched and damage to the building itself. The club room suffered smoke damage.  The fire broke out at about  9.15 p.m. A passerby noticed  it- and phoned in the alarm.  Firemen responded immediately only to find it was at  the firehall.

It had apparrently smouldered  for some hours before smoke  seeped its way to the outside.
