Sunday's,Canadian Folk Society, Vancouver branch ethnic  dance program at Elphinstone  school under  auspices   of  the  Sunshine    Coast    Community  Arts Council drew an audience  of close to  300 persons. They  saw  a  colorful. troupe   of   94  persons who came from Vancouver in two buses, perform  dances of their native land.  ; There were Polish, Russian,  Croatian/,  Ukrainian, Estonian,  Filipino,.  English,    Irish , arid  Scottish dances and. gymnastic  displays. Harvey Gallaher was  master of ceremonies and Mrs.  EHa Gallaher program director.  If there was a general choice  from the audience it would  most likely be the Filipino and  Ukrainian dancing, which cap  tured the imagination. The  Ella Gallaher dancers iri their  English, Irish and Scottish  dances were by no means overshadowed by the larger ensembles of Slavic dancers. The  Estonian girls with their Rhyth  mic Gymnastics showed considerable skill in controlling  their concerted actions.  Some of the audience felt  the stage was too bare for proper-effect but in some of the  ensembles; if the stage space  had been limited the dancers  would.have been hampered.  . Mirs. Doreene Ppckarichair-  nian of tiie Arts Council con-  grati���ated the artists on their  performance and complimented the audience on its fine appreciation of what the performers had presented.  Elphinstone Co-operative at  its annual meeting declared a  two percent dividend, the same  as the previous year. Last  year's directors will remain as  this year's.

Without wasting words; just dig in to the following paragraphs and read for yourself what CFP is to this section of the  Sunshine Coast:  "The payroll for Canfor operations on the Sunshine Coast is  close to $5 million annually, a figure that is likely at least one  **?*? of tne total income earned from primary industry in the  region. Howe Sound Pulp employs 500 people. Cantor's Fleetwood Logging operations employ another 8E�� ri_en.  "On the basis of an average family numbering four,* it can  be assumed that Canfor jobs support'approximately 2,400  people, directly, or 25% of the total area population..  "Another 650 jobs in the supporting secondary* trading and  service industries in the region can be attributed to the presence of Canfor employees. Directly arid iridirectly then, Can-  *& ^������;��� m**or Jnfhierice in the economy of the Sunshine Coast.  ITor school purposes the taxable assessed value of Canfor interests represented 30.5% of the total for the Sundiine Coast  -Regional Districtvin 1972.  'P^PJ-o*^employees also play a significant rolein the life of  the Sunshine Coast communities, in local government^ in charitable and public service organizations, and in clubs and recreation programs."  If there is anything which should be criticized it would be  placing the Roberts Creek-Gibsons-Langdal^ area in the southern part of the Sechelt Peninsula ��� a. geographic impossibility.  Also Pender Harbor might not like having St. Mary'sHospital  replace the one which was operating in Gibsons. The remainder of the issue really does a good job for the Sunshine Coast. ,  A down-east view  Quite an interesting booklet entitled Canada ��� Adventure  tours off the Canada Highway, from the govermeht travel bureau in Ottwa describes tours one can take province by province  starting at British Columbia's Nanaimo. A tour front there to  Jordan River takes in Ladysmith, Che/nainus, Duncan Victoria,  Sooke and Jordan River. It describes the route ably and makes'  interesting reading. . s  When one reaches the Sunshine Coast with Squamish as Mile  O it becomes more interesting. You .drive on (Route 99 to Horseshoe Bay. From there "you can take the seven-trips-daily 200  car ferry (additional sailings in summer and on holidays) across  Howe Sound to Langdale and along Highway 101 to Gibsons,  a small coastal village near off-shore Salmon Rock where king-  . size salmon, weighing up to 40 pounds, have been caught.  'Continue on to Roberts Creek, Wilson Creek and the quaint  little summer resort of Sechelt to Irviries Landing, another  fishermen's dream and on to Earl's Cove where the ferry takes;  you across Jervis Inlet to Saltery.Bay"  We draw this to the attention of Sechelt's Mayor Ben Lang  and chamber of commerce officials so that they may know that  someone down east regards Sechelt as a quaint little summer  resort. Maybe from an eastern point of view he could be right.  Having perused various dictionaries for meanings of the word  quaint it will be left to the reader to discover his or her own  ideas of a quaint Sechelt.  5-10-20 years ago  FIVE YEARS AGO  Too many unlicensed dogs  -are creating disturbances in  Gibsons area, giving council  a problem.  Martin - Dayton, engineer  has been asked to prepare a  plan for development of the  harbor area.

A, flaming red sun  slips below a horizon tossed  with dark brooding clouds.  Almost instantly it is night.  The stars in. the sky are  strange ones, only three of the  Dipper are visible far to the  north. The air is as warm  and as thick as it was during  the day and under the starry  sky it carresses the ship in a  slight breeze.  Activity begins. Scotland the  Brave music filters into the  night from the ballroom below. On the aft deck, to the  beat of the throbbing engines  and in the light of a tropical  moon, Lassies do a Highland  Fling.  Tartans appear at the dinner  table and with gusto the Haggis is piped in from the galley.  The evening is a memorable  if unusual entrance into the  Southern hemisphere.  Late that night the Arcadia  crosses the International Date  line. For her passengers .and  crew, Friday January 2��, 1973  did not exist. We move from  Thursday night into Saturday  morning, suffering nothing  more than another very pleasant weekend at sea before  our arrival in Fiji.  Oni Monday, Monteiro, our  cabin steward, awakes us at  the usual time of 7:30 for tea  and biscuits before breakfast.  A short time later Fiji's  largest island smiles down  upon lis. The surroundings  are breathtaking. Mountains  rise from the sea on three,  sides - towering, steep, and  cloaked in a dozen shades of  lush tropical green - their  summits lost in a crown of  heavy grey clouds. Below the  magnificence of the volcanoes  lies the harbour - a lagoon of  shining green water that .  drinks up the reflections of  the forested slopes above. The  harbour entrance is half block  ed by a great coral reef - a  sweeping cresent of foaming  . white where the blue Pacific  meets the shining lagoon iri a  frenzy of surf and spray/  .Dominating the scene is the.  city of Suva. Situated at the :  head of the harbour, opposite  the reef arid flanked on each ,  side by green mountains; Suva  awaits   our   arrival.   Suva   is  termed the metropolis of the  South Pacific. Capital of Fift  its population of 54,000 is com  posed   of   two    main    ethnic  communities; the native Fiji-  ans   and  a u large   immigrant  group of East Indians.  As we approach shore, the  first landmark to meet the  eye is a long narrow cement  quay running parallel to the  shore. This is Kings wharf the  only deep sea pier \ in the harr  bour. Behind it lie a series of  warehouses much like the old  shed on the Gibsons wharf,  looking as' though they had  been built for World War Two  supply movements and almost  but not quite, abandoned  Behind the warehouses sits  the commercial part of the  town, a collection of two and  three story aging colonial  structures built around clumps  of palm and fig trees. And beyond, white -washed houses,  some with thatched roofs and  all with verandahs and pillars  of wood creep up the moun  tainside.  March music drifts from the  shore to greet us.  In   speridor   of   blue  tunics  and, white   kilts   the^ Royal  Fijian Police Band plays and>  parades, along  the; "length''��� cullr,  King's   Wharf: ���%  crol^i hasi  gathered' and by the��� timie we ��  pull alongside our berth, half  the town has come down to  meet us. A fabulous sight, the  marching band, and behind it  a sea of bright Polynesianand  East Indian garb,arid a multi.-;.  tude of welcoming fbrcesi  Ashore, to a people and a  lifestyle that are neither North  American or European, arid to  a country that is, in riiany  ways *A_dan. We are iihmers-  ��� ed into Polynesia. The intense  heat, the stifling huxniditj^ the  sounds, sights and smells of a  foreign world close iii/  A huge market place has  been set up between the warehouses  and the town.  < .-.������.   <������ ���  Chants of merchants fill the  air - selling everything from  teakwood knives to shell jew-  eHry. The sweet aromas of  bananas, coconuts arid strange  tropical fruits rise from  amongst great wooden barrels  of spices. The wharf is alive  with activity and; colour as  East meets West in. a mad  inter-change of bartering, buy  ing, selling andrnutual observation. ;'.��� '. ^; '������'���-.I  Arising above 1 the handi- ���  crafts, foods and spices, colour  ful saris and Fijian textiles  looms the great white presence  of the Arcadia - an inspiring  backdrop to the scene.    :  Downtown next, to a collection of partiallypaved na'-*- -  row streets ;filleo_.vw^  and open 'sided 1940 vintage  buses (with passengers hanging onto the sides and out of  the windows).  Everywhere thereare people  A /traffic policeman in; white  ���. kilt ���:' and white��:��l^  this; irratic traffic' ^  himself could not  conduct; a  .frail  and  aged  oriental  man  hurries   across   the   street,   a  bamboo pole across his shoulders with bunches of hairy coconuts  hung  from each  end,  dodging flying jeeps as he' goes  a half dozen children climb;} in  arid   but ��� of  the  warm  harbour   chasing ; zebra   fish,  laughing and soaking up the  sun. until their eyes sparlcle.  The    mountainside    behind  Suva  is   bright   with   blooms  and a thousand tropical birds  bring music to the tree tops.  The  day?s wandering takes  in;   War  memorial   Hospital,  built   in  1914  its   crumbling  frame   and   open    air   wards  seem as out of place in the  late   20th   century   as   do  its  nurses   in   Florence   Nightengale costume; _the Parliament  Building,   a   hollow;;. block   of  grey stone damp  and: musty,  riiany; windows without' glass  and offices furnished in nothing more than a desk, a chair,  and a slowly revolving double  bladed fan  in the- centre  of  each   ceiling;   and   a   cricket  game.  Only a few minutes walk  along the waterfront from the  crowd and bustle of central  Suva, in all its green glory,  lies a large cricket park. Players in sparkling white stand  under the beating sun, then  move in sudden bursts of  throwing   and  running,   then  stand still once more.       - *  Beyond the crick!et park  sweep the grounds of Government House. Vast iinmaculate  lawns trimmed by tall straight  v jpalriis, flowering shrubs and  lily ponds rise to the summit  Hbf a small mountain and the  governor general's official residence.  The cricket groimds and  Government House together  form what is, perhaps, the ;Iast  sjrmbol of theJjriperial past  of this newly' indenendant  tropical paradise. ::-;\  The cricket game goes on  while brilliantly clad sentries  guard the curved, sloping,  palm lined drive to the Coloni  al mansion high above.   .  Clouds gather for a late  afternoon tropical storm.  Above the noise and excitement of the'market place the  4Arcadia gives, a iong deep call  It is time to leave. Soon the  Royal Police Band, this time  in uniforms of Red and White,  parade and play for us once  more. The townspeople, who  have ;beeri / so friendly and  helpful duririg our stay, pour  onto the wharf to wave goodbye. We slip away as the rain  clouds descend from the mot���i  tain tops and as the rays of  the dying suri^ light a: sparkling  path pri the sea >ahead, A saiil-  boat accompanies us out beyond the reef. The' green  mountains slide into the sea.  Those of us who are lucky  will return. -  ���~ir^r^rio*"_c-_^~ir~ijxr^TjHjn_ru~trnriir^ i���ri~i~���*M~ir-|i~n~ir~i~ ~,~ ��� ��� ���   -������������ ��� ��� --.������������ ��� ��� ii���i���.��� -._��_���  Sunday Night-World Premiere!

O. Moore, surveyor  of taxes. In a letter, he said  land owners in Gibsons and  Sechelt received revised assessment notices because the computer omitted applying an  equalization factor in village  roll. That made it necessary  to run them through again.  Mr. Moore added that as  equalization factors were applied correctly in rural assessment rolls, no revised notices  were sent to rural area owners.  Gibson Girl & Guys  Cuttin' _ Styling Centre  Gower Point Road  i       ��� ���   .. .  886-2120  SUSAN & DULL  ARTICLE  NINE  By the Institute of Chartered  Accountants of BjC.  As indicated in previous  articles, capital gains taxation  involves one general rule and  then many exceptions to that  rule. The exceptions for assets  held on valuation day have  been discussed previously;  this article deals with some  of the major exceptions.  The ���icbrne Tax Act will  deem the cost of any asset  acquired for personal use  (automobiles, furniture, paintings or stamp collections) as  having a cost of at least $1,000  and, if disposed of, it will be  considered to have been disT  posed of. for $1,000.  Thus any asset acquired for  personal use for less than $1,  000   and  sold   for. less   than  $1,000 will toe neither considered  to  have a  capital  gain  nor   loss   for   tax   purposes.  Similarly,   if   the   asset   were  sold for more than $1,000 it  would only be the amount in  excess of $1,000 that would be  a capital gain for tax purposes  The converse is only partial  ly true, however. If the asset  is sold for less than $1,000 the  amount by which the cost exceeds  $1,000 will not  always  be  a capital  loss.  Losses  on  most types of personal property (automobiles, boats or furniture)   are  never, deductible  for tax purposes.  Listed personal use property  is a separate type of personal  use property, and only includes works of art, jewelry,  rare books or manuscripts,  stamps and coins. Gains and  losses on listed personal use  property are computed on the  $1,000 deemed selling price  rule, but losses on listed personal use property may be  used for tax purposes as follows:  (a) the losses may only be  applied to gains on listed per  sonal use property; and     '  (b) the losses not deduct  ible in the year may be applied to personal use property  gains in the previous year or  in the next five years. The;  losses may not be carried forward indefinitely. -  Prizes (won ironi lottery  tickets are hot subject to ~<capi'���;  tal gains taxation at the time  of winning. If, after winning  the prize, < the value of the  prize goes up or down, the  amount of the subsequent increase or decrease would he-  come subject to other rules  applying to capital gains and  losses at the time of disposition.       l                                 *  A beneficiary is not subject to capital gains taxation  on receipt of life insurance  proceeds (although B.C. Succession Duties may apply to  the life insurance proceeds.)  To prevent abuse of the  provisions for the deduction  of capital losses, the Income  Tax Act provides that any  "superficial losses" will not  be deductible..  A superficial loss results  ,when an asset is sold for a  loss, and the same or identical  property is acquired by the  taxpayer, his spouse, or a  controlled corporation during a period commencing 30  days prior to and ending 30  days after the disposition of  the property and held by that  person at the end of the period  Thus, if a taxpayer is to  take advantage of a loss for  tax purposes, he should ensure  that the same or identical  property is not acquired dur-/  ing that 30-day period, and  still held at the end of that  period.  If an individual transfers  property to his; spouse either  by gift or bequest, provided  that both the individual and  the spouse were resident* in  Canada, no capital gain or loss  will occur at the time of transfer.  In this situation the spouse  will be treated for tax purposes as having the same cost  6     Coast News, Mar. 7, 1973.  of the asset that the transferor  had,   arid   capital   gains   and\  losses   will   be  measured,  ac-;  cordingly/-     j_B.G. :   residents  should ,be aware of ^BjC.

Hopkins Landing.  Stan Bracewell, still active,  alert and straight as a ramrod  at 85.  He apologized for the somewhat untidy appearance of  the ��� place, admitting as chief  cook and bottle washer, his at-  . tendance to household chores  - definately lacked the woman's  touch, especially with Ws wife  in a Vancouver hospital, recovering from a fractured hip.  Born on the Isle of Man,  Stanley was brought up within eight miles of Manchester,  where every spare moment  was spent at Buckley Hall, the  rambling ancestral home of  his grandparents. He recalls  to this day the stately Elizabethan stone house with its  third storey windows still  blocked out to avoid the taxes  imposed in earlier days, on all  windows showing on buildings  three storeys and over. It was  at Buckley Hall, Oliver Cromwell and his round heads quar  tered before the battle of  Ashton Moss.  Stanley ajlso recalls his  father telling of a thrilling  trip taken by his grandfather  as a passenger on the first  steam train from Liverpool to  Manchester. .���'>.���.'.  At the age of 15 the call of  the sea asserted itself and  young Stanley through his  father's friend John Forsythe,  was indent���red for four years  to Messrs Thomas Law & Co.  shipping agents for the Shire  Line of sailing ships out of  Glasgow. Four gruel���hg, event  ful years were served before  the mast, years that took young  Bracewell   across   many   seas  and oceans around the globe*,  all voyages on the . famous  Shire Line sailing ships. In  his travels he would round  Cape Horn five times, sailing  on the iPebbleshire, Selkirkshire and Fifeshire. In this,  Stanley contends sailing  around the Horn is not as tricky as navigating in the face  of gale force winds encountered in running their Easter-  lings down.  BracewelTs longest single  passage, took 142 sailing days.  In his voyaging, Bracewell recalls putting in at Portugese-  controlled Lorenco Marques on  Delagoa Bay in East Africa.  This was the terminus of Oom  Paul Krugers rail line to Boer  held Pretoria, the escape route  taken by a young escaped prisoner of war (newspaper correspondent) Winston Church-  hill, in the Boer war of 1001.  On another voyage; again  entering the harbor of Lorenco Marques, he sighted the  historic three-master Cutty  Sark, (then sold tQ the Portugese who cut her down to a bar  kentine rig and renamed her  the Ferarra. By ami act of provi  dence, this grand old Clipper  Ship survived this and other  similar indignities, to find a  permanent anchorage safely  on dry land at Greenwich.  His lafct ship was a four-  masted Dundee Barque, on  which he served as acting Second Mate. She was headed  from Mexilones, Chili to Falmouth, for orders. He came  ashore in 1908 to sit for his  Mate's papers. It was only  then he realized a total lack of  color perception, which automatically   barred   him   from  Congratulations to  The Royal Canadian Legion  Sechelt Branch 140  on the opening of their new building  L&HSwanson  BOX 172 SECHELT 885-9666  All sand and gravel iweds, septic tanks.

In  the Irish Sea, his ship collided  and cut a schooner in half.  Fortunately no lives were lost,  but as he was witness to the  accident, he was held over on  Belfast for the maritime hearing. On completion of the case,  Bracewell was given the option of transportation to Australia or Canada. On the spur  of the moment, he changed  his travel plans and headed  for Canada, at that time at  the peak of immigration tide.  He came straight out to Saskatoon, joined the town fire department and soon became its  chief, with a bit of farming  on the side.  Within two years, wanderlust hit him again and so off  to Australia, a passenger on  board the original Royal mail-  ship Orangi, then flagship of  the New Zealand Shipping  Company's fleet. They arrived  in Sidney Harbor as the bells  were ringing iri- the New Year,  he made Iris way up country  to Brisbane, which he had  visited on four previous occa-'  sions while on shore leave.  Within a few months, the  wanderer was glad to be back  headed for Canada; this time  Prince Albert, where he met  and married Violet Hillkirk, a  Lancashire lass just out from  the old country. It was here,  son Vince was born - again he  was to go farming for five  more years, before moving to  Richmond, BJG. where for 17  years the Bracewells became  fruit growers. The restless  urge still on, took them to  Haney in 1922, again to farming. In 1929 the depression  forced them to West Vancouver, where Stanley was engaged on house construction.  With declining ' employment  the Bracewells moved to Co-  mox again on housing construe  tion. In 1951 they came with  their family to semi-retirement and safe anchorage at  Hopkins Landing.

Vegetable soup easy to  There is always a good supply  of    soup-making    ingredients  such as carrots, onions, rutabagas, celery and potatoes.  Homemade vegetable soup is  an easy and natural way to  include these vegetables in  daily winter menus.  The secret of a flavorful  soup is t0 extract the vegetable flavors by slowly -simmering the ingredients in water or bouillon. Seasoningjs,  such as curry powder in carrot soups, lift a soup out of  the ordinary flavor class.  The "Carrot Soup" we feature today can be prepared  at home with a miirimum  amount of work by using an  electric blender. The blender  quickly purees and blends all  the vegetables to a creamy  smooth consistency.  The ''Scotch Broth" is a  meal in itself with the added  meat.

Now, this  means that either the office  .has to lose 20% of its gross  income or increase the fee  structure so that the people  who have paid their accounts  subsidise those who haven't.  Whilst many businesses find  this quite satisfactory I am  afraid that we consider this  not only unethical but complet  ely unfair.  Secondly, since last year  the federal government has  seen fit to consider outstanding accounts as taxable income  In other words one is expected  to pay income tax on money  that has not been received. If  you consider that a dental offices overhead is between 45  and 60% of its gross income  then to have outstanding accounts considered as net income is completely unrealistic.  Again, if we were to have  outstanding accounts we would  be obliged to raise fees to pay  interest on what would in fact  be a loan to the federal govern  ment.  The policy that your reader  complains of is designed to  eliminate the very high expense of bookeeping and losses that are the inevitable results of unlimited credit. It  not only saves us money but  it saves him. money too.  T. C. Webb, D. R. Bland.

J.  Kidd, provincial director of  lands the suggestion that the  local public works representative should be approached to  determine whether any action  can be taken.  The issue came before the  Regional board last week ,in  the form of a reply from Mr.  Kidd. He also said that the actual administration of floating  debris that is a hazard to navigation rests with the Department of Transport under the  Navigable Waters Protection  Act.  The Regional board will send  a copy of the letter to the local department of public  works.   -  The legal notice by Canadian Forest Products at Port  Mellon, published two weeks  ago involving untreated effluent going into Howe Sound,  resulted in the Regional District board at its meeting last  week noting'letters from wildlife organizations and citizens  querying this procedure.  The board learned the application covered an outlet from  the townsite, in operation for  some years. An application for  its operation is made each year  wider pollution laws. Chairman Lome Wolverton said the  company had plans in hand to  rectify the problems created  by old sewage outlets.  7824  IN FAVOR  The B.C. Government Employees' Union' has voted 76  percent in favor of reaffimating to the B.C. Federation of  Labor. BCGEU general secretary John Fryer said the results of a referendum vote  on reaf���Uiation were 7,824  votes in favor and '2,412  against, with 18 spoiled ballots.'  Coast News, Mar. 7, 1973.     9  i.  Point of Law  (By a Practicing Lawyer  Copyright)  A number of letters have  been received enquiring about  the unpaid sellers lieri.   ���  Ther is no such thing under  our law. A seller who sells an  object cannot, if he does hot  receive payment, exercise any  lien over the object. He cannot, that is, seize the object in  question.  This rule may, at first glance  appear harsh, but it must be  borne in mind that the sellor  has delivered the goods, without   securing   the  sale  price/  and other parties dealing with  the   buyer,   for   example,   a  later buyer of the goods, will  assume  that   the   first   buyer  owns them - because he has  possession of them. Buyer may v  become bankrupt. In this case,  the goods become the possession of the trustee in banrupt-  cy and the proceeds from the  sale of them are available to  satisfy  creditors.  The sellor can very easily  secure his position by selling  by way of the conditional  . sale agreement of bill of sale  and chattel mortgage. These  will be the subject of a separate article.  A lien is lost once possession is given. The right of lien  in general, remains so long as  the sellor has 'possession.  There may be a perfectly valid  sale of a large bulky object,  let us say a steam shovel, wit-  out possession passing to the  buyer. The buyer can't pick  such an object up and take it  with hirii and in such cases  usually makes arrangements  to return later with a truck to  take possession. The sellor  does not have to give possession till he is paid.  An unpaid sellors hen does  exist, however, where possession has been parted with tb; a  carrier. Let lis 'say sellor has  sold to buyer with no definite  arrangements concerning credit and sellor is to ship the  goods by rail from Vancouver  to buyer in Calgary. Sellor,  after parting with possession  of the goods to the carrier  learns of buyer's insolvency.  He or his agent may take the  goods off the train at, say,  Banff. Buyer, however, may  steal a march if he learns of  sellor's intention and obtains  possession of the goods from  the railroad company at, say,  Revelstoke.  Moral - Don't sell unless you  are either paid or somehow  secured by the right to seize.  Ferry traffic  More than 200,000 motor  vehicles used the ferry service from Horseshoe Bay to  Langdale last year, Highways  Minister Bob Strachan informed the legislature. The actual  figure he said was 205,000.  He added that the run tb  Bowen Island handled 43,000  cars and the Nanaimo run  380,000. In all the cars moving  through Horseshoe Bay outbound numbered 1,254,675  compared to 1,132,590 in 1971.  Of these 953,000 were private  cars compared with 849,000 in  1971.

When six,, her mother  . died and Ethel went to live  with her aunts in Tillsonburg,  Ont In 1898 she married Elra  Beeman and they moved to  Penzance, Sask.. to homestead.  In the, spring when the^snow  melted, they discovered they  had pre-empted alkali land so  they gave it up. From then on  they rented farms.  Mrs. Beeman often reminisces about itinerant gangs.  "Their caravan was pulled by  the huge steam tractor followed by* the threshing iriachine  and bunk houses. Froni a dis-  tarice, it looked much like a  train winding its way across  the prairies.  After losing her husband and  living through some of the  worst years of the depression,,  the family moved to Okana-  gan in 1934.  After the dust bowl of the/  prairies the Okanagan looked  like  a  garden  of  Eden.  They  resided there until the late fif-y  ties, when Mrs. Beeman moved to Nariaimo.
