FINED  FOR   DISTURBANCE  On Tuesday evening, Robert  Belrose and Earl Rennie were  taken off an SMT bus by the  R.C.M.P. and lodged in Sechelt'  jail overnight for drinking and  creating a disturbance.

"       . ������  v The commission pointed but  in view of reports tliat collection of money was being made  on proposed garbage pickups,  that no garbage collector has  been appointed up to this date.

The-letter was sent to Gibsons * DistrictTiBbard of Trade  and the opening paragraph reads: '.'The rapid, developments in"  saedical science are such that a doctor using even a small hos-  gital requires a sizeable number of diagnostic arid treatment serfages if he is to be satisfied with the hospitalization furnished to  life patients. In addition, nurses and other hopital personnel cus  ISesnarily work a five-day 40-hour week, with the result that a  Trery substantial staff is required to provide 24-hour per day cov-  asage by graduate nurses, together with the daytime tasks that  swist be performed in a hospital. This means that hospitals must  Se so located that they can serve a sufficient number of people  Uft make possible a reasonable measure of diagnostic and treat-  snent services, otherwise either the costs of patient care ge well  Seyond reasonable limits or the quality of patient care suffers  (Materially."  The letter goes on to explain there is already one hospital  fJSt. Mary's) in the district and that a fair percentage of patients X  would go to larger centres for treatment, places where there  ^ould be a wider range oi services.      .  The next paragraphreads: "It seems quite evident, theore-  jtoT��"7 that ther esteblishriient of a hospital between Gibsons, arid  Sechelt' would meat! that ai- hospital would have to operate wdth..  3-tess' than the minimum patient load required for efficiency and  awoncany."

Your Printer  HI  IS  no  - ,f-���-  Article 8  Another activity the -. goyexxi-  ment commenced to be interest*-  ed in was the landing places,  \yhich in the earlier days was a  provincial:-government respori-  sibilty^ a^v least in 'yttteoZh?.T As  has been noted* the fiist wharf  was built by Mr. Gibson; other'  lanclings.being-priyately iristai*-  led floats^ or riiereiyTboats, coming alongside.  In l&Oly however,- the Government built a public, wharf  at the site, of the present wharf.  Then abbut 1908 or i909, Mr.  G.H. Hopkins haying acquired  the Morrow property, a wharf  was -built; at Hopkins XLihMhg.  t This led to; some, .amusipg pol-  iticar re-action. The provincial  government was, , ot course,  Conservative, and Mr. Hopkins,  being a Conservative also, ap^  parently did not have too much  difficulty in convincing the dte-  partment that a wharf was in  the. public interest.  .  * *    *  But   our   old   friend,   Mrs.  Lucy Smith, had for years been  demanding a wharf, and, being  a Liberal, had been unable to  present a convincing case. Her.  rage can easily be imagined,  when Hopkins Landiing, closer  to Gibsons than Smiths Landing  with at that time no road connection, and no more settlers  adjacent, got a wharf. Smiths  Landing actually had. a road  connection, such as it was! &t  least, it could be negotiated by  a teani and sled, though not a  wagon But Mrs! Smith's fury  was of as little avsiii asTthatof;  Her Majesty's loyal opposition  in the teaent pipeline, i^  lio at Ottawa.  .Then,, out of a clear sky,  came wohdcitul news; the liibr"  ..erat'. ^'yfilr^eiit;. -at-' 'OJta'Wa,..  preparing tKfc ground fw the-  1911  election, announced,.:vti��ty  theyvwouid take over the work  ���of   batlding   and   maintaining  wharves. - Mrs. Smith irnrtiedB-T  atelsr..s|iw.- that 1^*'m^^;fnj|^t^  inherit;   hot An^sessatOy-' - / the*  earth, but- at l^t  a^wharl.  Her opportunity was riot? lessee^  ed  by the fact: that she had  gone to school in New Brans-'  wick, with one, of :tjie cabinet'  -mi^p^^(L;^h^  Tiirie of election; w^ getting '  eloser,. and with commendable ���  prompitude it was decided to  build a wharf at Smiths Landing.    Then  another consideration arose.  The wharf at Hopkins Landing had  been built  with piling deemed to be teredo-  proof; that is, fir pining covered with a wire wound asphalt. ���  Actually,   it   perhaps   can   be.>.  doubted if this was really teredo-proof, as the work of placing and diriving the piling oftenf  ..-.".��� dis-placed  large pieces of  as-7  phalt, ;..;-.,"  * *    *   7    ,-  Mrs. Smith would have none "  of such "hay-wire" contraption,  and insisted on piling, of imported Australian' hard-wood),  supposed to be truly teredo-proof.  So the wharf was  built,  and  stood for many years.   It was*  never connected to shore,  ex-,  cept for a two-plartk wide ped|y  estran walk to the drift-wood  from the last bent.   Not that  this  really   mattered,   as   few.  boats, and few passengers, everr  landedythere. :\.

The "Belcarra" foundered in  X   Agamemnon Channel, after hit-  r   ting  a reef just north of the  present ferry landing at Earl's  Cove. Capt Sam Mortimer was  skipper oh a number of Whittaker .boats,,  and   during   his  years  of service became very  well- known, and very popular  with the people along the route.  'Capt. Dawe, now retired at Sechelt,  was   a  skipper  on  the  "Tartar" and other boats during  those years.   Later- Cap��.  Mortimer  formed  a company,,  the "All Red Line," and brought  out from England first the '"Sel-.

Later, I. think, Capt. Mor-  : -timer' Isold Tout, to  the   Union  Steamships.    .  Of course,, in an era of private enterprise and free com-  . petition . there: was nothing to  prevent small ..independents -  from "horning in." Quite a,  number of such started, mostly with short histories. One,  though, William (Billie) Brown,,  with the "B.B.," a gasoline en-  xgined boat of perhaps 40 feet,  served! west Howe Sound for. a  number of years; her skipper,  Capt. "Dave," was another of  the very popular transportation  men. Later a group,; I think  headed by a Mr. Hutchinson,  put on the '^Marine Express'! also gasoline powered, and some  what largerl'. ,lh between, and  during all this, other free-lancers took a whack at the seeming golden goblet, but apparently *were never, able to real-,  ly get the cork out. '  Free competition is supposed  tp be the methodl of getting the  ;best" results,. but I sometimes  wonder if all this, sometimes  irresponsible competition did  any more than take enough  revenue away from the.more,  well-established operators so  that there was little encofcrage-y  ment for them to give a better  service. On the other hand, the;  small operators, at least, some  such as the "B.B." did give a  better service in some respects ,  than the big boys; and certainly  the Union Steamships, for instance, who had! the runs for  many years, often all to themselves, seemed tp'-make little  effort to anticipate, nor provide  fori  future demands.
