Gargrave explains how Legislature functions
The First Roberts Creek
Scout troop and Cub pack on
Monday evening in St Aiden's
hall had their first lesson in
forestry conservation: when
three films were shown by
Syd  Butler. >
One dealt with forest fires
and the precautions to take
and the others, with logging in
its various stages from the "log
to a finished product. Mr. Lit-,
tie of the Forestry department
gave an interesting talk.
Operations of legislative processes  were  explained  to  the
Board  of Trade dinner  meeting Monday night   ' by    -Tony
Gargrave,  MLA  for  the  Mackenzie district. .He also showed
excellent    colored    slides    of
scenes in the legislative halls .-
Mr.     Gargrave's      remarks
covering  the   Sommers-Sturdy
case in which a cabinet minister is reported to be involved
in irregularities,    covered the
various steps so far. In a preamble to his remarks he said
he  did not presume to  judge
the cabinet minister. He was of
the . opinion  the   attorney-general had not acted  wisely  in
the matter  and    later    added
that   if   the   allegations   were
true "they would rock the entire  political picture    of    the
west    coast."    Mr.    Gargrave
thought^   a   'judicial    enquiry
should have been    called    in
view,  of  the-serious   implications  that  had  been  made.
Before leaving the Sommers-
sturdy case he remarked that
governments will always have
scandals but so far remarkably
few have occurred in Canada.
Where   a     minister     gets     in
trouble, the premier should
ask if innocence can be established and if so he could then
defend. him t® the hilt but if
innocence cannot be established the minister should be asked to resign. "The longer you
let the matter simmer in the
public mind the greater will
be the explosion when it
comes," he added.
Mr. Gargrave in his explanation of parlimentary procedure told how bills became
acts through legislative pro-
, cesses. He went through various bills to show what happened during the readings and .
on the measure concerning the
power situation along the Sechelt Peninsula coastal area
he explained why he voted in
favor of BCE taking over the
power  system.
While his party was in favor of public ownership he
weighed the matter and decided it would be in the best
interests of his constituents to
receive; cheap power. He did
this only after receiving assurance from BCE officials that
Vancouver rates would apply
to  this territory    when    BCE
took over. He was of the opinion though that the B.C. Power Commission was a factor in
BCE low power rates. Without such competition he did
not think the rates would be
quite what they are.
Dealing with the revised
Amusement Tax act Mr. Gargrave advised people who planed to stage events in which an
admission would be charged
amounting to 50 cents or over,
to first ascertain where they
stand before they commit
themselves to various expen-
. ses. He suggested writing to
officials of the department to
get the situation straightened
out before they become too ir^-
Describing how the legislative system worked he said
that every cent of the say
$25,000,000 budget had to be
passed by members of the legislature before the money
could be spent. A safeguard he
pointed out was the fact the
first vote on a departmental
estimate was that of the minister's salary. This gave members a chance to get the minister to give an account of his
departmental  activities.
Before concluding, Mr. Gar--
grave said his faith in the parliamentary system was stronger than ever in spite of various occurrences, including the
manner  the   press  reports  on-
legislative happenings.
Following his talk Mr, Gargrave  showed  some   excellent,
lantern slides of" various scenes--.
along the coast and in Victoria
where the legislature sits. The
pictures taken inside the parliament building and in various  corridors and    rooms    of;
the legislature were all excellent.
He was introduced by Gordon Ballentine and after1 tlie>
talk and showing of pictures
was thanked' by Ed Sherman,
of Port. Mellon.

British Columbia's power situation contains considerable  food' for serious thinking. While present facilities are being  expanded there is still talk of a power shortage.  The B.C. News Letter, edited by Howard T. Mitchell and  Lawrence G. Ecroy.d, members of a Vancouver publishing house  talks Of possible brown-outs in the mid'st of plenty.  Under the heading "Power Famine Amidst Plenty" the letter for February has this to say: "Just how serious is the poteh-  ���fial shortage of developed electrical energy in a power-rich  province is indicated by the announced intention of British  Columbia Electric to build natural gas fuelled thermal power  giants for peak load purposes in the lower mainland region".  Thermal power means super-hot gases applied - directly to  tiirbine blades ofs generating units much in the same way a  Ikrrbo-jet aircraft engine operates.  The B.C. News  Letter continues:  "Unanswered  as    yet    is  where the essential big volume of additional power is to come  Sfom.' Unless decisions are soon made, for the first time since _  war days British Columbia's industrial region could know the  effect of brownouts and power cutbacks within five years."  This all leads one to wonder about the future of the present  B.C. Power Commission's Clowhom Falls power generating station. It is understood! that the present station is not developing  the full source available. *  There has been talk of B.C. Electric developing the station  in a big way. Just how true the reports are time will tell but  it does seem logical to expect any electric supply source would  under shortage conditions, be geared to fullest capacity.  Reports heard mentibn a two year construction job using  some 200 or more men. This could! be not too far from the  truth but ascertaining that truth at present is difficult. Maybe  BCE has it on the drawing (board or maybe it is still a mental  problem. However with expansion along this coastline it could  be considered a possible eventuality.  the most    remarkable    letters  in all literature.

It was an unusual sight to see  a man without arms and legs  addressing that assembly, but  he was always listened to  with consideration and great  respjsct. He died in London in  1889.

He|  was born in Ireland in 1831,|  with, only  the  rudiments     oil.  arms and legs -. mere stumps  By October of this 3^ear BCE is to have a 132 kv transmission,    instead of proper limbs.

The line will start at the Cheekye substation, part of  the Cheakamus generating system, to. serve Squamish, Wood-  fibre, Port Mellon, Gibsons, Sechelt and! the area between there  and Powell River. A feature of the system will be one of the  world's longest overhead cable crossings, a 10,100 foot span  over Jervis Inlet.  . Need for power is clearly shown in the construction budget  of BCE for this eyar which totals $75,000,000, double last year.  In the.meantime the B.C. Power Commission which maintains power service in this area until BCE takes; ovjer^ is extending power facilities as fast as it "can and since leaving tlie  Sechelt area it has added more than 100 power consumers to  its-system. ��� ���.;���'..  The growth of the Power Commission along this coastline  Has been slow but with the advent of faster transportation and  an influx w of people, demands have necessitated expansion of  the system. It is. quite possible that if the Power Commission  remained in this 'area, it too would have to develop Clowhom  Falls into a major development.  It is beyond the realm of doubt that Clowhom has potentialities not tq be. overlooked in a power system like BCE reaching  out for more power to keep pace with the extrardinary growth  taking place in B.C.s industrial and population expansion.  LETTER.  Editor: I notice from time to  time articles re what Mr.  Gargraves, our local member  2_as to say.. Now with the exception of peddling a lot of  hot air, what has he done for  us? Presume he claims the  blacktop from Gibsons to Sechelt. I believe the Black Ball  ITerries put up the money and  the government stole the gra-  ���vel from me for this work.  <Ahd Mr. Gargrave considered' they had a right to do so).  He was to help us when Union raised the water rate. Did  lie? We had to pay the higher  sates. Of course there was one  time he might have had some  thing to say. that would have  benefited us but papers said  Mr. Bennett winked at him  and he forgot what he was going to say.  Has he done anything (except hot air) about the Wilson  Creek bridge. Mr. Gargrave is  a jolly good fellow but what  we need is action, and that, so  far, he has failed to give us.  I believe we, the voters,  should bear this in mind  next election and' put someone in that will give us  a run for our money and not  a hot air artist. I am not a S.C.  A Subscriber.  Editor.

Every effort resulted in causing, great pain to the. boy and  bitter disappointment to his  parents.- ,  ***.'*     7-7 :���..���������  In spite of predictions that  . he could not live, kavanagh  thrived. The muscles of what  arms and legs he had. grew so  strong with constant use that  he learned to ride a horse,  holding it with a strong, rein  and even using a whip. He he-  came a first class rider, and ���  although he was strapped into  a saddle chair, he learned to  ride at a fast pace and to take  fences as well, as the best riders ,  in the countryside. Further- :  more, he became an expert  ; angler, learned to write -letters more legibly than most  people who have fingers, and  even painted pictures.  Kavanagh's skill    in    shooting  amazed   everyone.  Seated  in a saddle chair on his horse,  he would rest his gun on the  stump which served     as    his  left arm and pull the trigger ,  with  an   attachment   made  to 7  his right- arm.   So expert did )  he  become  that generally  he  could shoot birds on the wing  while his horse travelled along  at a good pace.  *     *     *  While still in his teens he :  traveled in the East with his  tutor and his brother. He visited Egypt and Palestine, riding hundreds of miles strapped in his saddle chair on the  back of an Arab steed. Wherever he went he aroused a  good deal of curiosity. The  sight of this young man, without arms or legs, who could  ride so well and whose intelligence was of such a high order, excited wonder and admiration., v  On several occasions the  party was attacked by robbers  and Kavanagh's coolness and  courage was responsible for getting out of more than one  tight corner. On one occasion  the girth of his saddle gave  way and he and his saddle  chair were dashed to the  ground. He was picked up unconscious, but fortunately he  was not seriously hurt, and  the following day he was riding again.  Considering the terrible  physical handicaps Kavanagh  had to face, his unfailing cheerfulness was one of the most  amazing things about him, He  might easily have become  sour and  disgruntled.  But he  was never heard to complain.  Wherever he went he wrote  letters of great interest describing the places he saw and  the people he met. These letters always bubbled over with  fun and good nature. When he  had completed his 30th year  he wrote a long letter in which  he reviewed his life. The letter was. remarkable for the  constant references to the  goodness of God and all his  blessings. This letter is considered by many to be one of  |\ ���nawaaanBOMaaawmaBM--������  B. W. M.

McNUTT  The first store at the Skook-'  um Chuck ��� was a temporary  one. It was run by a Japanese  called Nakashema. He bought  fish from the fishermen and  supplied them with groceries.  Walter  Wray    and    Alfred  Jeffery    built    a    permanent  store in#1917 for Lennard Bailey. It was located on the foreshore of Joe Silvey's property  on the north side of the Narrows. It was built on stand-ups  and  the tide frequently came  up  under  it. The first school  was  nearby. Bailey sold    the  store    to    Major . Sutherland'.  Walter    Wray    managed    the  store and had the first post office.    Up until that  time the  whole area had    been    called  the Skookum Chuck but     on  Walter Wray's' application the  name was changed to Egmont  after Egmont Point, so named  SINGER  SEWING MACHINE  REPRESENTATIVE  .

In 1921 the major sold the  store to George Hatashita (Ha-  ta-sta) a Japanese. It was then  that Walter Wray moved the  post office down, to his place  hear the Rapids. After ten  years and several postmasters  it was moved back to the store.  Hatashita had the store only  a short time when another store  was brought in on floats and  was tied up so as to be almost  immediately in front of the  other store. This cne belonged  to Taki and Maeda (My-da).  They; had been friends of Ha-  tashita's but it is doubtful if  the, friendship lasted under  these circumstances. However,  no one in Egmont knew whether it did or not.  MURDOCH  MARINE  SUPPLY  Phone 3F  Pender  Harbour  'What's  New  At  HASSANS!  BAPCO  PAINTS  ..

Many of them spent the winter there because- it was convenient to the stores.  Tied to  the inside    of    the  floats were   large    live-tanks.  1'h'ese were sunken boxes built  of slats to allow the water to  run through.   Some  contained  live herring which were used  for bait for salmon and    cod.  Others held the live cod which  were not killed until    it   was  time to take them to town. The  salmon were bought    already  dressed and kept on ice in the  fish house.  In   order  to keep  the bait and the cod alive. The  fishermen    had      water-tight  bulk heads i n. their boats and  drilled holes in the hull to let  tlie sea run through. At certain  seasons of the year perch were  used for cod bait. Herring was  the favorite bait    for    spring  saraon  but  when   not  obtainable spoons and flashers were  used. Of course nets were used  when the big  runs  of humps  and dogs appeared    and    ,the  occasional runs   of sockeye.  In the winter clams were  dug, sometimes just for extra  pocket money and sometimes  of necessity. Octopus commanded a ready sale. It made fine  halibut bait and I believe the  Japanese also ate it. There was  always plenty of excitement  in the ice house when a devil  fish get out of the' sacksV in  which they had been brought  and started to climb with great  rapidity up and around. the  walls. A record cod> was once,  caught here by a young boy. It  weighed  ninety   pounds.  The Japanese were interested mostly in buying the fish  which they tcok to Vancouver  in their own packers. They  made regular trips. The return  loads were ice and supplies for  -the stores. Hata shita's packer  was the "Matsu" and Taki and  Maeda's the "Kiku". In later  years, they; each acquired a  second boat - the "Matsu II"  and the "Kuku II" respectively. And it can be said here that  many a person in a hurry or  short of funds got a free ride  to town on the packers. They  were always willing to bring  up special orders and were liberal with their donationh to  any worthy cause.  /<  or  The store owners' families  lived for the most part in Vancouver and they themselves  ran the packers, hiring someone else to run the stores, but  as members of the families  grew older they were often  put in charge.  My? first acquaintance   with  -these stores was in the fall of  1934. We were at Green Bay  and had to go to town on business and wanted to call in at  Wilson Creek  on the way, so  we decided to take the "Lady  Peggy"  that far. This was    a  small  open  speed  boat.    The  weather  was   warm,  the    sea  calm and the mc6n would be  shining brightly that night. We  started out at 7  that evening  having decided to go down the  outside.   We  hadn't  gone   far  when we saw the sea^of lights  that indicated��the gillnet fishermen were out in full force  after the dog salmonrThe nets  stretched from shore to shore  ��rand there was no way cf telling which lights were on the  boats and which  on the ends  of  the nets.  We noticed a long low  ground swell had started to'run  up the Channel. This meant  an easterly out in the Gulf.  Rather  than chance that    we  decided to' go up the Channel,  to Egmont and .down-, through  the   Chuck to  Porpoise    Bay..  We called   ill    at    camp    and  told them of the    change    in  plans and then headed'-.up the  Channel. By the time we got  to the store it was nearly 11  p.m. We hdd already consulted  the tide bock tb the effect that  it   would  be  slack  tide  about  midnight.  So there -was nothing to. dp but wait. We consulted bur watches and discovered  they didn't quite    agree    and  what was   that   about   not  always being able to rely on the  tide book to figure the Chuck?  So* we decided  to  inquire: A  knock     on     the    store    door  brought Kathleen    Maeda    to  answer it. When we explained  who we were and    why    we  were there she   invited us in  for a cup of coffee. She said  she was  nervous  because  the  men were all away    packing  fish and there was a story to  the effect that some   ' character was going around in a boat -  holding up people  on  Nelsoxi  Island. (When the police caught  up with him he said he    was  doing it to get material for a  book.)      .  We asked Kathleen how long  she had been there and her  answer was six long years. We  learned she had a boy friend  but her parents :did not approve as they already* had a  husband picked out for her in  Japan.

The dress  has high cpeh square neckline and short sieves. The  brief bolero has a notched  front an is collarded and lined  in blackpeau de soie.  Any busy housewife planning one of those fluffy, light  deserts for family or party  use will now find that the preparation time can be greatly  reduced.

The ladies have come up  with other uses again because  of its light weight and flexibility, it is used happily to  make crinolines, it's, just stiff  enough. It is also proposed to  use it as stiffening for light  standup collars, and for jacket fronts. Adaptable stuff, it's  fireproof, too. That's fibre-  glass screening,- here on the  Peninsula.  *  *  *  Spring cleaning, for some  reason, becomes associated  with Easter.

PHONE  6  YOUR T-V CENTRE  Sechelt  Neighbors  remember  A pleasant evening was enjoyed recently, when the neighbors of Mr. and Mrs. James E.  Leith, of Murdoch's Landing,  Pender Harbour, surprised  them with a party to celebrate  their Golden Wedding Anniversary.  It was held at the home of  Mr. and Mrs. Douglas Parkes.  On their arrival Mrs. Leith  was given a mauve fibre. orchid and Mr. Leith a white  carnation. Five tables of whist  were set up, Mrs. J.P. Leith  and D. Parkes having high  score, while Mrs. A Cherry: and  D. McNaughton qualified for  the  booby. '  Prior to the, serving of refreshments, R.D. Murdoch and:  D. Parkes put on an amusing  skit,, in costume, of a bridal  couple, recalling to Mr. and  Mrs. Leith the places they visited on their honeymoon.  After the toast to the'couple<���  by Mr.  Parkes,  Mr.  Murdoch-  presented them with a gift as  a  token  of the neighbors'  esteem,  first  pinning    on    Mr.  Leith a copper medal with the-7  words,  "Hero, 50 years", and  on Mrs. Leith a similar medal  as an Award of-Merit!  The iced 'cake, in white and;  gold, was cut by Mrs.    Leith, X  and as the evening drew to a  close,  old   time    songs    were-  sung, ending with Auld Lang ���:���  Syne.  Mr. Leith is    a    native    of  Scotland and emigrated' to they  New  England     States    as     aV  young man. Massachusetts was,:  the  home  of Mrs.  Leith, and  it was here    they    met    and;;  married.

BESL.   were in:  stalled-by   Dominion   council  member, Bob Macnicol, at their  March     meeting.      Re-elected  President, J. Yewdall presided.  Addressing    the    members  present on the "Past and Present" of the Legion, Mr. Macnicol outlined the many activities   of the organization during its 30. years operation, and  expressed  regret  that   considering the services rendered to  .  veterans of two wars and their  -widows and other dependants,  the    Legions   membership   in  Canada today, although it was  the largest veteran ��� group, and  the most   representative,    did  not  exceed    220,000    out    of  around    1,200,000 _ ex-service  people. He blamed apathy and'  ��� possibly prosperity    for  . this  ���condition. Attributing the pension  and rehabilitation conditions extended to War II vet?  erans, as due in great part, to  tlie efforts of    thje    Canadian  Legion, he warned that what  could be   granted  in    legislation by the Canadian Government, could quite easily be curtailed, in later yiears, as   was  done in    1933,    unless    steps  were taken to maintain in Canada, at top strength, an organization, like the Canadian Legion.  The Legion has had1 many  legislative successes during its  30 years. What failures there  avoided had there been strong-  ' er support from the many thousands of ex-service men and  women in Canada, as the fed^  eral government, like all governments, is sensitive to public oppinion.  Discussing the depression of  the hungry '30's he said it  was a nightmare to Legion cf-:  ficials, but the organization  could take considerable creditor having adopted a sane approach to the many problems  involved, and for its "efforts  in combatting communism at a  time when there was a very  "fertile field for infiltration of  communism into the ranks of  hungry unerrlployed veterans.  The Legion had done its bit  in -wax and peace. In War II  through the operation of Canadian Legion War Services  and Canadian Legion Educational Services, it had served  the troops, at home and overseas, while at the same time,  urging preperations for successful rehabilitation at the  conclusion of the war.    .  The Legion has consistantly  urged that in the event of another war, the Government  shall immediately mobilize  man power, wealth, .and machinery, for the pursuit of the  war, thus placing all- on- an  equal basis. Mr, Macnicol stat- .  ed there was no such thing in  Canada, during War I or II as  equality in sacrifice, i In    the  second war, cost plus 10% contracts were a glaring example  of profit making, and not  withstanding heavy taxation,  indirect benefits that accrued  from this questionable costly  system of contracting, materially favored the contractors.  Operation of licensed clubs  by Legion branches is permissible, but the first consideration is that a branch shall carry  on satisfactory Legion welfare  and adjustment services in ac  cordance . with the objectives  outlined in the Act of Incorporation, and that the operation of licensed club premises  shall not become the main activity of a.branch.  Various provincial liquor  acts in Canada dc not permit  direct control of these activities by Dominion command,  and this duty is delegated to  the provincial commands, of  which there are ten in Canada.
