The new port  will be a decided improvement  for the motorist with several  lanes of parking space available for waiting cars and a  level area practically all the  way from the ramp towards  the main highway.  Col. George Peabody opened  ceremonies by calling on Leo  Sweeney from Vancouver to  introduce Mrs. piarke who.cut  the ribbon thus putting the ferry port into operation. Following the ribbon cutting, Col.  Paulin called on Evan Jones,  dpp.uT<y minister of, highways  who in his remarks said that  the bad spots between Langdale and Gibsons will be checfe  ed to see what improvement  could be made.

Boyce, director of the  Associated Boards of Trade for  Fraser Valley and Lower Mainland addressed Gibsons and  District Board of Trade dinner  meeting Monday night in the  Dogwood." Dining room and  stressed that the fundamental  reasons for the existence of  boards of trade was to work  for the betterment of the community and to get together to  . work out improvements that  could be made.  An example of this occurred  later in the meeting when the  board decided, along with the  Sunshine Coast Tourist Association t0 erect a welcome and  mileage sign at Langdale ferry  to advertise Gibsons: and dis1  trict. -   --���*  The meeting also selected  its slate of officers for the coming year and Fred Cruice,  Coast News editor was named  -president;      Walter '  Nygren;  Port Mellon.  Discussion suggested that  rates on cars should be scaled  in view of large and small passenger cars involved and that  the driver be included: in the  car rate. The board decided to  send a letter to Black BaJJ  Ferries asking for a revision  of all ferry fares as a result of  the shorter trip from Langdale  to Horseshoe Bay.  ���Presentation of an engraved  lighter was made to Albert  Crowhurst- for his .faithful  work T for the board down  , through the years. The presentation was made by Mrs.  Wynne Stewart, retiring presi  dent.  Mr. Boyce in his talk outlined the resolutions, that were  debated at the last associated,  boards' meeting. One resolution from Pender Harbour  board urged that in view* of  property assessment shifi&ig  cost of education to the taxpayer that there should be s.  revision of the schedule of  grants. It was revealed ont  area had its cost boosted from  57 to 82 percent.

BECK FAMILY FUND-  Sechelt Kinsmen club announces it has opened a fund  for the widow and three small  children of Peter Beck of Selma Park who died recently in  Vancouver. Fred Oike has  been appointed chairman of the  fund and contributions may be  sent to him or to the Kinsmen  club at Sechelt.  An    immigrant,    discussing  . gardening with a neighbor, remarks  on the lay-out  of  her  lawn.   ���     "'  "It took a lot of work to get  it that way," the neighbor explains. "We got a cat on to it,-  but they, make such a mess,  and they don't touch the roots  you know.''  The immigrant'has heard of  goats being put on to lawns to  keep them in trim in his own  country, but has never heard  of cats being so employed- He  wonders why it is that Canadian cats make such a mess  and why they don't touch the  roots. However, being a sen-  ���sitive man (he is English) he  doesn't like to show his ignorance by asking questions, so he  goes off a little bemused.  Later he talks to his other  neighbor,, a logger, who tells  him confidentially that the  guy down the road has had  his cat seized.  "Couldn't neep up the payments on it." replies the logger.  "Don't tell me you can buy  cats on deferred payment in  this country?"  "Sure can. Who the hell can  afford to pay cash for a cat?"  "How much do cats cost  here?"  "Well that depends whether  you  buy a used one or not."  "And what would a good  used cat cost?"  "Well that depends on the  horsepower."  The immigrant is on the  point of asking if the price of  rabbits and gold fish is also dependant on the horsepower,  when the logger's use of the  word "caterpillar" stops him,  and suddenly he sees the light.  All recent cat misunderstandings clear up in a flash, including the one that he's heard so  often since his arrival:  "Jees. eight hours in the  woods chasing a cat sure makes  a man thirsty!"  The zoning bylaw passed for  third reading, as did bylaws  relating to Shops Regulation  and Garage and Automotive  Services.

During this year and next,  B.C.-boosting messages will be  going out by the mail sack-  full on letters from post offices  across the province. Two dies  have been made for post office  stamp cancelling machines,  and they have started going to  post offices in various centres  on a rotating basis.  One stamp-cancelling message says, "B.C. Centenary,  1358-1958." The other says  "B.C. 1858-1958, A Century to  Celebrate."  Between 80,000 and 100,000  of these messages go out of  Vancouver in a day, out of the  total average of 200,000 letters  a day that go out fom its post  office.  Much of the daily flood of  mail from government, business and industry in British  Columbia will be earring another message, too.  The provincial government  and some 450 firms, at last  count, have ordered meter  ad plates for their stamp metering machines.  Nearly 800 of these have  been ordered so far. They'll  stamp one of two messages on  envelopes. One will be a picture of Century Sam, the sourdough character symbol of centennial celebrations, saying,  "B.C.'ing You In 1958." And  the other has the centennial  crest and "A Century to Celebrate" alongside it.

It was headed "Why not a voluntary try-  ���wit?*' and it does have some bearing on the Sunshine Coast shopping hours. Here is the editorial:  "If 90 percent of the retail outlets in the city want to  ��3ose their business establishments all day Monday, as reported  own, without a bylaw. If the other 10 percent of retail outlets  �����& City Council Tuesday, then let them do it, strictly on their  feel their primary job is to serve their customers by remaining  -s-pen on Monday, then let them do it also, without being subject-  ag io the penalties which a bylaw would impose.  "It is a ridiculous and undemocratic situation, surely,  when a group of merchants, no matter how large their majority,  ���aaa go to City Council and ask for such a law to coerce the min*  aiity of merchants who are not in favor of Monday closing; and  Sfaat City Council with no evidence tb go on whatsoever as to  Stow the tens of thousands of. consumers feel about it, meekly  fcows to the pressure and agrees in principle to passage of the  Tfoylaw.  "Supposing the legislature at its last session had adopted  a law requiring the retail trade to adopt a five-day week. Would  the merchants have liked it? And yet by asking City Council to  impose Monday closing they are in effect asking for such a law  which is bound to find its reflection in successful agitation for  qpider and wider application. One restriction almost inevitably  leads to other restrictions.  "The merchants who want to close have every right to  ���o so. There are no laws which require them to remain open.  Bot how would they like it if 10,000 consumers petitioned City  Council in terms of getting a bylaw ordering them to remain  ���spen for set hours, including, for instance, Friday evening?  "The consumers are taxpayers in' this city as truly as  are the merchants and have an equal right to demand bylaws.  "If City Council moves further into this field, all they are  asking for is trouble.  They will deserve whatever trouble they  $et  "Would not a much more sensible approach to this situation be for the merchants who want Monday closing to agree  among themselves to try it out voluntarily/ for the summer  aaonths. They could in this trial period find out how it works,  Slow they and their customers! like it, and at the end of August  could consider md?e intelligently whether to continue or abandon the plan���but still on a voluntary basis without any city  ftylaw. By that time also those merchants who now aire opposed  slight be inclined to change their opinion. AU that would be  accessary to meet these conditions would be to rescind or amend  iSie. present Wednesday closing bylaw.  "The merchants of this city surely are capable of regulating their own operations, subject to existing labor laws under  which employees enjoy full protection.  "Of course, everybody enjoys a long, weekend. If certain  aserchants ieel they can afford it for themselves and their employees, fine. Just fine! But why try to force it on everybody  *Ise and expect City Council and the police force to wield the  *.udgel.  ���"What this city.needs is less, not more bylaws related to  ihe conduct of business."  A second took  If there is any surprise in the federal election, it would  2��e that the Social Credit party did not come out as strong as one  ��ould normally have expected.  Based on the fact the CCF and Conservative candidates  Srarely made an appearance in this part of the country, each  ccoming as a orie-man affair supported very lightly by a second  andividual, they did exceedingly well.  Compare their campaign with that of the Social Credit  Seam of at least five speakers at each of two meetings pounding  away on election themes and then consider the vote: 500 for  CCF, 507 for Conservatives and 744 for Social Credit. The other  (candidate, the Liberal topped the poll with 949 votes. At one  meeting he had some support but at others, none at all.  One can come to the conclusion the battery of Socred  speakers in their effort to convince might have been over-  ; ��odvincing or on the orther hand Social Credit (with a question  xsiark) does not appear to voters in federal politics.  It is obvious that Social Credit as a political theory is not  quite as solid on the Sunshine Coast as ardent Social Crediters  ^Kouid have one believe. The total vote in rough figures was  2,700 with Social Credit getting 744 of that total ���-and the campaigners worked much harder to get those 744 votes than any  rai the other three parties.

T. RAYNEK.  Clerk for the Corporation.  Here is a paragraph from,an  old newspaper which, serious  then, today would cause am:  usement only. y  .London, Aug 8.-The grip  which the automobile is getting upon England is well illustrated by the fact that, at  ���the fag end of an exhausting  parliamentary session when  everyone longs to get away to  moor and sea, a crowded  House of Commons debated  yesterday for hour after hour  what the speed limit of such  vehicles should be. The first  government proposition .to  double the limit and make.it  ,25 miles per hour, fairly terrified the non-motoring section  of the House, who recalled  that this is the normal speed  'of English and Irish rural  trains on specially enclosed  rails. On the other hand some  "motorists" declared that a re-  to editor  To the Chairman of the Public  Utilities Commission. V  Sir: Now that your body has  the schedule for the new ferry  site, and its   buses, under review,    may   I   register,. once  again; my protest against the  extortionate   price   I  have -^to  pay   for. transportation   upon  that route.  For one and a half  years,   I   have   been   charged  forty  five   cents,   single  fare,  either, way upon  the   regular  passenger   buses,   running yon  schedule, to Port Mellon.   My  home is exactly half way, i.e.  five   miles   midway   between  Port Mellon and Gibsons.   Usually I ride upon the workers  bus in  the morning, the men  who commute  to Port Mellon  pay thirty cents per ticket, by  buying a packet of ten.   I am  ��iot allowed to buy these tickets, and get off, or on, half way  to Port Mellon. When I bought  books of tickets, I vsfas charged  $4.50 for  ten,  the   driver  informed me that he was not allowed to sell me the commut-  |ers tickets.  The owner of;the  bus   transportation    explained  that your P.

The above paragraph was  taken from the first story on  the front page of a Montreal  uaily Star dated Aug. 8, 1903.  ' The same issue devotes a full  page to a Congress of Chambers of Commerce of the Empire which included Henry  Bell-Irving as the representative of the Vancouver Board  of Trade. Lord Brassey and  Lord iStrathcona were scheduled to attend the event.  Among the resolutions to be  discussed were some from the  Vancouver Board of . Trade.  One urged the principle of  countervailing duties in such  cases where an unfair state of  competition had been created  by the granting of bounties to  foreign producers by their respective governments,.  Another deals with the metric system and the Vancouver  board wanted it legalized and  after two years made compulsory everywhere als�� taught in  schools as a section of arithmetic. The Vancouver board  was also interested in protecting the trader in the Far East  and urged His Majesty's government use every effort to  secure facilities for assisting  British traders in Manchuria,  Corea (as it was then spelt)-  and Siberia and to collect and  make public all information in  furtherance of this object.  The Vancouver Board was  also interested in the Alaskan,  boundary dispute and.had this  resolution: Resolved, that in  the opinion of this congress a  final settlement of the Alaskan  Boundary-question is very de-  sireable "in order to remove  any possibility of friction and  to promote the development of  the great territories on both  sides of the line.  There /was also an interest  ing sidelight on the labor sit-  uaTjon as revealed by a Belleville, Ont., Board resolution  which said that "the present  strained relations between capital and labor, involving dis-  asterous results to trade and  commerce, demand legislative  and executive action and that  in addition to all possible facilities for conciliation being  afforded, ; enactments    should  be passed: (a) requiring 'the incorporation and registration of  all labor unions so that they  may be' responsible for their  acts; (b) the prohibiting in British Dominions of interference  by alien agitators; (c) the insuring of stability of contract;  (d) the more effective prevention of acts of violence in connection with strikes; (e) the  securing of persbrial freedom  and the individual '������ right to  work.

In respect-  of the latter, there were present Mr. W.F.' Veitch,  director  of taxation reasearch, with two  assistants   from   the   taxation  branch.  The panel discussions touched on many matters not of immediate concern to this village,  besides, of course, quite a number that is our concern, some  of which had been the basis  of questions on which I had already made enquiry. ���,  In general it seemed to be  most apparent that   the panel  members themselves were very  often uncertain as to the exact  meaning^,   which   is. IremaMt-  able when one considers that  among   panel   members   were  men like Ron Howard, solicitor for North Vancouver, and  Mr. Lidster, solicitor for New  Westminster   for   many   years  and in municipal work continuously since the early 1920's-  iStill more remarkable was the  (evident uncertainty of the department men.  The attitude of  the  latter  was   very   evident  when shops regulation was under discussion; the deputy minister was not prepared to admit  that   the   act,  as  framed,  '  was  not   enforceable;  on   the  other hand he  would not de-  , clare that in the opinion of the  Department   it   was   enforceable; perhaps not   wishing  to  go   contrary  to the press reports of the Premier's remarks  Actually   his    recommenda- .  tions  seemed to  be   that   the  municipalities   adopt    bylaws,  attempt enforcement by  court  action if necessary, and leave  it. to the court to decide if the  bylaw,   based   on   the   act,   is  sound.   In   effect, the municipalises   ^ssumje ithe  cost   of.  court action, to test the validity  of government act.   I am sorry  that I d0 not,feel.competent to  "give any definite advice as respects shops regulation, except  to say that' I think it would be  desireable and  safe  to   adopt  the proposed bylaw authorized  by Section 869; I don't think  we would be likely to get into  any trouble there.  But I certainly   am   not   prepared    to  make any recommendation  as  to a bylaw under 867.  Some points were made in  the discussions that could be  of local application, such as:  It is important that no expenditures be made, no cheques  signed, except for purposes  properly authorized, meaning  in general that the matter is .  covered by expenditure bylaw  and in most cases that the item  has been further specifically  authorized by.,, resolution; it  may be noted thatT this latter  point is referred to in the Ex-  .   penditure bylaws.  Another   point    made    was  that it was generally not good  practice to put a load  on the  taxpayer to provide funds, or  services for some future years.  It was admitted that this often  could not be well avoided, especially    if   any   considerable  ��� amount of capital expenditure  was being provided from current revenue. But an example  of   what   should    be   avoided  would be a case of a capital installation    being    made   from  borrowing,   than   rates  being  levied on a scale to try to pay  the capital installments, interest, provide funds to cover de-  v* '.eciation   write-offs,   and   at  the same time provide  funds  ior  further   capital    additions.  ,t There    are   several   bylaws  that I believe we should work  yon.   One is a bylaw governing  procedure*, on   bylaws; such a  bylaw is now required by the  act.    So  far   we   have   none,  merely carrying on  a procedure established I think by Mr.  Winn and Mr. Parker.   I had  some     discussion     with     Mr.,  Brown on this,  and with several of the other clerks; Rupert  Harrison, of West Vancouver,  spoke on the matter.   I find  there is no common practice;  some  give all   three readings  at one meeting. Years ago we  tried   this \ and   got   smackjed  down.  Actually our procedure  seems to be pretty well in line  with    recommended    practice,  but I think it could be stream-1  lined a bit so as to be less time  consuming;   and  it   wdiild   be  well to have an accepted Procedure set out for the record  in .a bylaw.  : I think" we should also-adopt  a new General Procedure by-.  law, with perhaps some study  of the hew act. This of course  is on the "agenda"; in actual  fact we have. riot for years  payed much attention to the  P��r>"da. and it might be well  to have a set of rules, based  a procedure found conveh-  ever under Section   570   it is  possible that a bylaw could-' be  drafted that would provide an  "out". I know-1 could draft  a bylaw under that section  that would provide such an  "out"; whether it would get  by, and not be thrown out as  contrary to the Public Utilities  Act is another matter.  The Home-owners Grant act  was the basis of a great number and variety of questions  {and plenty of off-the-record  remarks). Mr. Veitch, mentioned above, carried the load  here and gave very definite  answers in most cases. I had  a full sheet of questions in, beside some oral ones. A lot of  the rulings given will not be at  all popular; however, my practice will be to follow the rulings as closely as possible, and  if a dis-satisfied applicant  wishes to apply to the higher  powers, and get a ruling in  writing to   me.  I  will   follow  Coast News;, June 20, 1957.   &  that ruling.  It   seems  almost  imposslsSe  to get  things  in writing azggr  more.   Nearly all the namfeS-  pal   officers   are sour on $a&  deal anyway, as it is adding &&  the office work a great x&&3l.  About all  ihe  larger   musacl-  palities, and many of the smsM  ones, have already had to J3&~  crease their' staffs.   Besides, SB  tends to delay actual receipt eg  money and at this time of yess-  most places need money bad fee  carry on their work.   An answer,  of  course,  is  to  borrow  from the bank but that agam  costs extra money.

A new Elections bylaw  should be brought down; the  present bylaw, which I drew  up smore :or. less-".off the cuff"  is remarkably close to what*is  required by the new act; but  a number of forms now required by law are not precisely . the same Wording, and the  bylaw should conform to the  requirements of the act. Also,  it should provide for the two  new classes of voters, the "resident electors" and: the "ten*;  ant electors". The previous^  "spouse-elector" is no more,  now being absorbed among the  "tenant-electors". So . I can  now burn the costly printing  I had done two years ago for  this' class.

Pedestrians on unpaved  roads have a miserable time  when cars pass them. The lovely gardens into which their  owners put so much work are  spoiled by the coating of dust  on them.

When James H. Drummond  bought the store at Gibsons  from Messrs. Little and Anderson in November 1927, there  were .no stores at Granthams  or Hopkins Landing: There  was the Co-op at Gibsons, the  Union at Sechelt and Mr. Cor-  mak at Halfmoon Bay.  To serve these districts and  all the miles between. Mr.  Drummond bought a half-ton  Dodge truck in 1929 and hired  Jack, Lowden to drive it. The  many groceries were piled in  boxes on top of each other,  and manipulating :the^boxes all  day was something of a chore.  Soon a big "International was  added with��shelves built in,  and then "ahottier. These were  equipped with rear doors  through which. the groceries  could be reached.   -  The Mobile Service Store  was purchased in 1945.. It was  the last thing in modern efficiency, having a built in fridge  and counter, and a side entrance where customers could  come in out of the weather and  shopi. in comfort.  .- Twenty three , years ago  Dave Bates took over the route  and in all that time has missed  scarcely a day. It has been  said that one could set one��s  e*ock by the familiar toot of  his horn, in summer heat or  winter snow.  He will be missed by many  of his old customers who wish  him well in whatever his new  pursuits  niay be.  Last Day Sat.

Coast News, June 20, 1957.    7  A housewife in Sechelt  heard a tinkling of glass from  her garage playroom and went  to investigate. One of the-win-*  dow panes lay shattered on the  ground.  "Who did it?" she enquired  of the half dozen   youngsters  who had been playing.records  ..and dancing.  One youngster pushed his  dark hair.out of his eyes and  said: "I did but I'll pay for it."  Another declared, "It wasn't  your fault. I ducked and that's  why the cushion went through  the winsow.  It's up to me!"  The third boy said, "Now  look you guys, I'm the one  who started the whole thing,  or you two wouldn't have been  throwing the cushion. It's all  my fault!"  So the housewife decided  they should split the price of  a new pane of glass and her  husband would install it.  But the following day after  school, tlie three boys appeared  and asked for a rule to measure the window. They returned  later with glass which they insisted on replacing themselves.  Later hubby checked their  work and passed the job after  close inspection.  "I'm proud of those, kids," .  she  said,  "and nobody better  say anything to .me about juvenile delinquents!"

Typical tight battle was  Firemen's 2-1 victory over  Port Mellon on Tuesday night.  Port Meiion,s pitcher, Lee Mc-  Gee, and Firemen's Frank Gir-  rard waged a pitching duel  that went all-the way to the  finishJPort Mellon was unfortunate to lose as they collected  10 hits and left 8 men on bases  while Firemen got only 6 hits  and left 2 on.  A   rhubarb' nearly   erupted  when George Hostland slid into home  with the   tying run.  Umpire Ron Wilson called him  safe, then immediately changed   his   decision.  Port  Mellon  Buffered on several more close  decisions   but   umpire  Wilson  wants to make clear that he is  a neutral arbiter   even if  he  Jives in Port Mellon.   Actually,  Ron is doing an excellent job  especially since this is his first  year behind the plate.  On Thursday night, Sechelt  once again frightened Wilson  Creek before bowing to the  powerful  "River  boys"  4-3.  Sechelt   has   a  new  pitcher  signed from a Senior A league  in   Vancouver.    He   is    sadly  needed  as was shown after a  smashing 22-5 defeat suffered  ate the hands of the front running Firemen Sunday evening.  Sechelt   plan   on  protesting  the game over an umpire's decision ��� they had better save  their money because they will  never win on that account. Instead, Sechelt should put their  bats  where   their   Voices   aite  and get some action that way.  Also   on  Sunday   a  fired-up  Wilson Creek beat Port Mellon  10-7  in a  game featuring  17  hits. 20 errors and a near riot.  In    the   first   five    innings,  flawless ball was played.  Port  Mellon   leaned   into    starting  chucker Ralph Noble for seven  runs including 3 home runs.  Quiet reigned in the usually  nois^- due-out of the "Greek,  imen" as Port Mellon seemed  to be well on its way to victory. . Then came the fateful  6th inning. Four ftrors, five  hits and five runs later, Port  Mellon's lead had dwindled to  7-5.  Wilson   Creek   kept   up   its  drive and finished the seventh  .  inning 9-7.   They never looked back as they went on to win  10-7.  The near riot broke out in  this inning with the umpire  warning several players to be  iquiet or take an early shower.  After a month of play, Firemen are firmly trenched in  top spot, but Wilson Creek is  starting to click again and will  probably give Gibsons a tight  battle the rest of the way. Port  Mellon is third and if they can  ���get rid of their "one inning  Tblues" they could be serious  contenders for top dog. Se-  taeju is way back but with  even a few positions strengthened, they should come back .  and win their share of games.  ecneit news items  Mrs. Hodgson  in Broadcast  The CBC Trans Canada matinee broadcast of May 31 held  a note of local interest when  Mrs. W.
