Cranbrook Water Supply
Adequate---But No Fire
To tbe Editor,
Dear Sir:— Thero ata those ln our
City who are advocating cement
walks; tho municipal ownership ol
tbe Electric Light Plant; a Olty mar
kot; the purchase ot land lor a park;
all of which arc most worthy sentiments; but os I said at tbe Board ol
Trade Meeting, I feel that our Water
Supply should receive first consldera
We have an excellent supply as to
purity; let ub keep it ao. Now is
the time to act along th Be lines.
We have an adequate supply Ior a
number of years, and with more ator
age, ample water for fighting large
fires for a number of hours.
At the present time we have practically no fire protection from the
Water Works. Do you realize, when
you go to sleep at night, that the
pressure at the hydrants on tho hill
will not be over 50 pounds per sq.
in.; that hy the time hose is laid to
your house, near the center of the
block, there will be a pressure of
about 30 tbs where thero should be
about 70 lbs. These are facta which
can be proven. The writer haa had
a pressure guage in his Utchen for
a number of years, and knows the
average pressure for the twenty-lour
At the Board of Trade moating, I
aald that this condition can be relieved by the expenditure of about
$11,000.00. This will connect the end
of the 12 Inch pipe which cornea to
within three-quarters of a mile of
the City limits, to tbe present system at the Post Ofllce. A ten inch
wooden pipe wlll he laid beside tbe
present eight inch main (which is
too amall, hence no Are   protection)
' to Ourda Corner, thence down Luma
den Ave., to Baker St., and then up
Baker St. to the Poat Olllce.
| There are many who queation the
advisability of   using   wooden   pipe
' nnd advocate ateel. Mr. Bowness at
the Board of Trade meeting aaid
that there were   163   leaks   repaired
; last year on the main   between   tbe
.City limit and the reservoir; but tbe
| did not fall you that these leaka
have been anticipated by the Water
Dept. ever since the City bought the
system; nor did he offer any explanation of thc cause of these leaks.
There la a cause for every eft.ct. I
will, later on, explain why a very
large majority of these leaka occur-
ed, as I will do in the caa_ of others
"too numerous" leaks in the city.
Before condemning' woohen pipe consider it fairly from all points, with
the best steel pipe.
The essentials to be considered in
any pipeline work are, 1, Low flrst
cost; 2, Durability; 3, Carrying cap-
I acity,
| The prices wblch I submit, showing tbe flrst coat of pipes, are actual
values as were used one year ago in
preparing the estimates of the City
Engineer and aro all f.o.b. Cranbrook.

The pricoa of steel pipe vary greatly, depending on the manu facture.
It is clearly seen that the cost of
wooden pipe is from one hundred to
threo hundred per cent cheaper,
while the cost of laying is very
more out of proportion.
Tho durability of wood stave pipe
where lt will be constantly subjected to water preasure dependa entirely on the life of the material with
which lt Is wound. There are well
known Illustrations where steel
banded pipes have been in continuous
operation for over 50 years without
apparent deterioration; while the
average life ol steel or iron pipe is
trom 25 to 50 years, and may be
very much less.
In connection with carrying capacity, Rider, an eminent guthority,
states, "Wben ateel mains for a distribution systom are under consideration one inch is not too much allowance for annular ring taken uu
by tuberculation." This Bhows that
a 12 Inch ateel main will have to be
provided where a 10 inch main ia de-
aired; hence the flrat cost of pipe is
increased considerably above the figures. Wood pipe gathers no tubercu
lation and remains aa clean aa the
day lt waa installed. We do HLe
clean drinking water. Farther, a 12
inch wooden pipe with a loss ot head
ot 8.85 leet per 1000 wlll carry approximately 2,025 gallons per minute; wheri'ii- a new 12 inch iron pipe
undor the same loss ot head will carry approximately 1,810 gallons per
minute. Here ia an advantage of a-
liout 10 per cont in carrying capa-
aity ol wood pipe over lion or steel-
Have you thought of what might
happen to your children should a
fire of any size gain headway in the
school buildings? Tbere is only a 4
inch main feeding those hydrants.

Or. Darby's Tour
(Special to the Prospector)
The Rev. Dr, Evans Darby, London, England, Secretary for 25 years
ol the Peace Society, recently had a
remarkably successful tour ln Western Canada—a Peace Mission.
"The tour," Dr. Darby told a Jour
naliat, "waa at a psychological moment. It followed on the opening of
the Peace Palace at the Hague, and
many circumstances, including utterances ol Cabinet Ministers, had lm
pressed the public mind. These, and
also the long pressure put on Canadian loyalty from the Motherland,
helped to prepare tho way "
"What did your Journey oorui.'.'
asked the pressman.
"A six day's crossing to Quebec
by the C.P.R. 'Empress ot India',
an almost unbroken journey by thc
Canadian Pacific Railway right a-
croas to Victoria, B. O., a strenuous
round ol remarkable meetings on the
return Eastward, a call ol three or
four points In the Eaat, and a aeeond crossing, homeward, the wbole
occupying four montha, and covering
14,000 miles—5830 by aea, and o.er
8,200 by land?"
"And you had an active time?"
"I gave over eighty addressos, bo-
lord many thousunda of Canadians—
addrosses ol various types, but all
on the one great topic ol International Peace, including a apec.al development, a Peace Policy lor Can-
"How waa the Peace qunation received?"
"Moat cordially. I found much enthusiasm, marked earncalneas, and
practical unanimity against aggrca

Canadian opinion la rapidly moving

aldenco—at Edmonton. At the Canadian Club meeting, Major Oreabach,
who seconded a vote of thanka argued tbat 'war waa good and beneficial, and necessary for a nation.'
That vl.'w was decidedly not accepted
by the audience."
"Were you exclusively In the West"
"Yea, as regards risttnate propaganda. I had not time tor more—
but I conferred with Paclflata in Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal, and St.
John, and bad excellent meetings in

"Another tour la projected tor the
Haatern Provlncee.   It ia under dls
cusalon, and when undertaken will bo
doubtless as effective aa tbe one in
the West."
"Indeed," Dr. Darby added, "there
are unmistakeable aigns of large developments on the queation throughout the Dominion."
"What sort of meetings bad you?"
"Oreat Public Meetings, specially
called Conferences, week.end meetings
sermons ln tbe churches, maaa meetings after service hours, Brotherhood, Ministerial Societies, Canadian
Club receptions, others with the W.

"All tho meetinge were excellent.
Those at Winnipeg were the climax.
The newspapers proclaimed 'Peace
Week' and gave great prominence to
the effort in leading articles, and full
reports. Tbe press throughout, was
mnHt cordial, and did full justice to
thc tour and its object."
"Wire any resolutions passed?"
"Yes, at mnny meetings. Tho typical one wna thc one at Winnipeg."
"That ln the opinion of this meeting, Canada, being free Irom international difficulties, should devoteall
hor energies to the arts of 1'eaoc and
the attainment of social and economic juatice, and In so doing, can
without embnrraasmont, not the example, aa will enable her to take the

of International Peace and Arbitration; thercforo, we recommend that
a generous portion of tho money lt

maments, under either Conservative
or Liharal policiea, he diverted to
prosecuting an international educational propaganda for Peace gnd Ar
nitration; and that a copy ot this
Resolution be forwarded to tho
Right Honorable Robt. Laird Borden, and to the Right Houorable Sir
Wilfred Laurier."
"You found the Canadian Clubs
"Very, in nearly overy place. The
Prealdont nt Vancouver, Rev. J.
Mackay, D.D.. who ls alao president
of tho Federation nl Canadian Clubs
told mo ho would make peace the
main subject of his yonr of ofllce."
"You know thoro has boen aome
preaa criticism ol a   Peaco   policy."
"Yea, in one instance. But hero la
a pregnant fact, which shows the
trend of opinion."
"The Grain Growers' Quide at
Winnipeg took up the Peace question
prominently, anh Included it in a
list ot subjects submitted to a plebiscite ot its readers. The question
put wae;
"Do you believe that Canada in-
atead of spending millions for Naval
Armaments (either British or Canadian) should devote her energies and
spend her millions if necessary, towards the establishment of Universal Peace and Disarmament, and thi
settlement of international disputes
by Arbitration."
"In the result 6,408 men and women voted—6,060. Yes, and only 653
No.   A very remarkable result."
"I was," concluded Dr. Darby,
gr.atly interested in, and impressed
by tho wonderful Canadian scenery—
the rich prairies ol Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta, tbo mountain grandeur of the Roclea, tho
heights and passes, and vailsys of
these mighty mountains, The wonders viewed from tho observation
cars ot tho Canadian Pacldc Railway
make an experience that is in-e.-crii e
able, and impressions that will live.
The great railway Itself is marvellous, and travel by lt a delight. Also

wonderful factors ln the commercial

Y. M^Notes
The Gymnastic Competition   given
in the Gym. ot tho Olub laat Friday
evening was a splendid auccoss. The
Judges   found   it   very   difficult   to
chooso the first five conteatants,   In
soirta casea only   one   quarter   of   a
point separated the successful   competitors from those immediately following.   The winners wero;
Jas. Brechin, prize—gold cuff links,
donated by W. H. Wilson.
M. Murray, prize—military   brushes,
donated by Beattie-Murphy Drug Co.
W. M.  Harris, prize—pair ol   boots,
donated by W. B. MacFarlane.
Wilfred Dallas,   prize—goods,   donated by P. Burna & Co.
H. L. Rohiin, prize—   hat,   donated
by E. A. HIU.
The claas work of every competitor was of a high order, some of the
juniors mado a particularly brilliant
-hoving, showing great afllty and
precision ln their work. Round aftor round of applause'from the audience showed the appreciation of the
spectators in every event.
The exhibition of high bar and
parallel bar work by Physical Instructor Mirams. was very c'assy.
HIb form was faultless and the difficult swings and turns held tbe l.rge
audience breatblaes Until with a
graceful swing the akil.ul performer
landed on tbe mat.
Tbe races were all very keenly con
tested and were provocative of no
Httle fun. The hardest fought contest of all however, was the high
jump, between teams of se.en men
each captained by Jas. Brechin and
. I. Murray, respectively. Alter each
member had in turn been eliminated,
except the captains, a battle royal
too'* place between these rivals, and
after a numbe. ot antendid jumps,
lirechin was balked and ma ing a
slight misjudgement loat hia leap at
height of five foet. Murray and
Ids team also won on the average in
this event, but Brechin's team won
nil other events.
Thore was a largo audience completely filling the balcony and lining
both sides of the .gynmaaium. There
will be more of this kind of "good
thing" later on.
The boys are getting into line for
out-of-door sports, the Bankers Foot
ball team of the Club are to meet
the Y.M.C.A. team on Saturday
noxt. There is talk of forming another team also with the hope of
forming a League.
Baseball ls also being talked of
and an effort will again be made to
put a good ball team repris.nting
tbe Club, on the field.
Tbe basket-ball game between tho
Thistles and Commercial laat Monday night was a thriller, the teams
stood eight points each at half time
but by supreme effort ln the second
half the Thistles noaed out their
fast opponents by three points. The
game was a brilliant one throughout and was singularly free from
roughness.     The score:
ThlBtleB 19 points.
Commercials 16 points.
Naxt Monday night the old rivals,
Bankers and Thistles will meet. This
will be tbo first ot a aeries of three
games to take place on successive
Monday evenings. The Bankers bave
not yet heen beaten, and tha Thistles have only been beaten by the
Bankers. The Thistles are now in
top-notch form and are datermin.d
that lf they cannot beat tbe Bankers that that team will have to extend itself to the limit. Thla aarlea
will undoubtedly bo a hard lou.bt

preposterous that ono utterly (Alls
to understand how a jurist of the
eminence of Sir William Meredith
would ever have allowed himself to
become sponsor for it.
No one among employing interests
ta opposed to a reasonable measure
tbat will ensure the payment ot a
moderate amount of compensation
to the unfortunate dependants of
those who lose their lives or are
crippled In tne pursuit of their em-'
ployment. In proof of this they
have intimated their willingness to
go as far as any civilized country in
the world has gone, and much fur
ther than most of them have gono.
What they object to, however, iB to
be squeezed for further concessions
that would handicap them so that
tbey would be unable to meet competition from outside.
On account of the complexity of
the subject, and the extreme difllculty of acquiring a grasp of all Its
details, we must be prepared to
miJ.e some allowance for the apparent reluctance of the Government to
take liberties with Sir William's
magnum opus. But the Government
will make a profound mistake if tbey
assume that the manufacturers are
objecting simply (or thc sales of objecting. If this bill is forced upon
the Province it mny be neceBSary for
employers to retrench In ways which
neither the Govornmont nor the
working people themselves at pr.s-
ent contemplate. For example, mn
ufacturers might be forced to e'im-
inate from thetr employment the
physically unfit and Incompetent who
are now retained as pensioners, but
who might become a lorlOUl charge
upon the compensation fund; or man
ufacturers might ho forced to discontinue welfare systems now In operation. Other means of protection

Finances of Canada
During tbe pant few months the
Liberal Press and Liberal orators

governme.:t. The revenues were never so bouyant as at tbe present day.
commerce bad reached this year a
new high water mark, and in addition during the past two years the
net debt of the country had actually
lecreastd by $13,.".00,000, as com
pared with an increas- during the
last four yars * >f the Liberal regime
of no less than -*T*t..000,000.
"Sir Wilfrid Laurier makes the
mistake," commented Mr. White, "of
imagining that because he has ceimed
governing Canada has ceased growing." Mr. White presented aome com
pari si'iis, which gave point to this
remark. The tirst year the Conscrvn
tlves came into power tbe revenue
wnH $136,f.00,00l). This year it will
be no less than $17U,000,OIH). Trade
has been expanding. Tbe year before
tbe Conservatives came into power
the trade of Canada was $750,000,000
The next year it was $850,000,000.
Last year it reached tlio magnificent
total of a billion dollars, and tbis
year, notwithstanding the tlnancial
stringency, tbe trade will far Hiirpass
the record-breaking figures of last
There have been many Liberal at
tacks that the net deb! has been
Increasing. Tbey are not founded on
fact. On October Uth, 19U, the daj
the Borden government came into po
wer. the net deht was $321,000,000,
and ou December 3lst, 1913, it was
$303,000,000, the net ileM during the

000. In 1909 alone the net debt was
increased   hy   $46,000,000
There have been Liberal criticisms
of recent Canadian borrowings. Mr.
\vtn;e exposed 'be fren-led finance of
Hon. W. S, Fielding, and tbe facts
are fairly appalling. From Decern'
ber nth. 1907, t" January 23rd, 1909
the period of tbe money stringency,
thirteen months. Mr. Fielding borrowed tbe staggering total ot $100,
000,000, Of that amount, in seven
months alone, he borrowed $SO,t>00,000
But this is not all. In 1S.H there
was no borrowing by way of guaran
teus. The Laurier government iuau-
gurated the principle of bond guaran
tees. Mr. White showed that the
Canadian Northern Itailway received
guarantees Tn excess of $f-.j,000,..00,
aud the Orand Trunk Pacific guarantees to the amount of $70,000,000.
Tbe guarantH-H, tbat in to say, tbe
contingent liabilities, incurred by the
Dominion during tbe Liberal regime
amounted to a sum in excess of
Mr. White still further expired tbe
financing of the old government.Hon,
Mr. Fielding had brought iu legislation whereby be agreed to Implement
to the par value the selling ot the
Grand Trunv Pacific bonds. Mr.
White, as one of his first actions,had
to pay the sum of $5,0tt0,0iH) to the
Orand Trunk Pacific as a result ot
this grotesque agreement, receiving
absolutely nothing m return. In ad
dltlon, with more bonds to be placed
iu the market, possiMy at only seven
ty, under this Impletmutng clause,
Mr. White was confronted with tbe
danger of having to pay out some
$18,000,000 to the Orand Trunk I'n
"1 look the sensible course," said
Mi While, "1 took llie curse up
proved of by every financial man oi
thel in Canada or London, who know
anything about the transaction, 1
brought in the tlrand Trunk Pacific
Bond Purchase Act, and under the
provisions of that Act, during the
last two years, instead of wasting
lour surplus, wc have devoted it to
the purchase o( these bonds, And
what ts the result'" I bave repaired
the loss tbat would bave taken place
by reason of the tlnancial bungling
of 1905; I have purchased no less
than twenty-two millions of the
Grand Trunk Pacific bonds guaran
teed by the Dominian, Ot course,
they are absolutely good; the money
put into tbe purchase of these bonds
is not lost money; but I have saved
the implementing and 1 have prevented these bonds from being thrown
upon tbe London market. That is
what I have done with the Burplus
of 1.12."

Aeronauts from all the eivllUtad nations of the globe, with every standard t/pe of aircraft driven i.y motors, will participate in an atrial
race around the world, which will be
a feature of the sporting events to
be held during the period of the Panama-Pacific International Exposition
Three hundred thousand dollars,
tbe largest prize fund ever oitiered
for any sporting event in history,will
bc offered to the areonauta who participate in the stupendous contest.
This may be increased later.
The race, the climax of all the
world's aeronautical activities, is to
start from the grounds of the Panama Pacific Exposition in May, 1915,
and must be finished within ninety
days, according to the tentative plan
submitted to the Pacific Aero Club,
representative of the Aero Club of
America, which is tbe American division of th> Federation Aeronautiqtie
ThuB the flight becomes the most
tremendous aerial drama ever played
The start will he made from Han
Francisco and the finish must be
made in that city.
The route ilea across the Slerra-Ne
vada Mountains, thence by way of
Reno to Cheyenne, thence either to
Kansas City, St, Louis or Chicago,
and on to New York City. Here the
route turns up the Atlantic coast to
Belle isle, a small point between
Newfoundland and Labrador. Here
the flight acr.ms the broad expanse
of tbe Atlantic begins, wltb Cape
Farewell, Greenland, 610 miles away,
as the goal.
This is not an impossible flight, as
is proved by the accomplishment of
Carroa, the French aviator who recently (lew fiOO miles over the Mediterranean Sea from Cannes, France,
to Tunis, Africa.
From Cape Farewell, thc route will
traverse tbe Atlantic Ocean again
for a distance of 670 miles to Reykjavik, Iceland. The next stop is at
Htornaway, In the Hebrides, oft the
West roast of Scotland, a distance
of 670 miles, and here the entire Atlantic will nave heen traversed.
The flight Is then over well-traveled air lines, which run by way of Ed
inburgh, Loudon. Paris, Berlin,War-
naw, St. Petersburg, Moscow, and
then, with the Trans-Siberian Railway as a guide, through European
anb Asiatic RusHta. Thence down in
to Manchuria, past Vladivostock to
C'orea, over the Japan Sea to Kobe
and Toklo, and thence North to Kant
From Kamchatka the air traveller
has choice of routes. Hts course may
lie through up thc EaBt Cape country of Asia, which is separated from
North America by only thirty miles.
Or it may turn East at. Kamchatka
to the Commander Islands, and by
way of the Aleutian Islands to Alaska. There is no ..ap in the Tactile
Ocean here more than 200 miles wide
From the roast of Alaska the
mute runs South to Victoria and Se
attlfl, and back to tbe starting point

the Zeppelin dirigible balloons are
rarely permitted to leave Germany,
it is fairly certain that oue or more
of these huge craft will lie entered in
the race.
France   will    unquestionably   Hend
some of its splendid ulrigiblea. There
Ih every reason to   believe   that    al'
the Powers of ihe world having aer
onautieal equipment will send olllclal
representatives frohi among their
military and naval aeronaut. . The

In addition to the aeronauts and
their entourage, the event, will un-
doudtedly drttW every Hcieutitle nud
mil-tuiy man who it. itilercated in
aeronautics, 'I'he preparation and
Die result of this contest will have a
groat cllect upon the science and tbe
military art of aviation; in fact, It
will bave a tremendous Blgnlflcutico
in every department ot human life.
Preceding the race itself it is plan
tied tO hold a Week's meet on tllfl
Panama Pacific International Exposition grounds. During three days ol
this meet here will be .contests and
sports in which the entrants in the
great race will be put through a series ..( qualifying tests. Diirirm the
last (our days of the meet an absolutely novel programme will he arranged. It will consist of an aerial
military content, in which it Is planned to invite the troops In the vicinity of the Exposition to participate.
It is hoped thnt the fliers of all
nations will take part in one of the
most novel sham battles ever held.
A total of $25,000 in prize money has
been set aside for this preliminary
week alone.
Simple way to test
for Radium
The following description of an instrument used for determining the
radio activity of ores is offered to
those who intend to search seriously
this summer for deposits of radium-
carrying minerals. This simple apparatus is usad for measuring the activity of ores by the United States
government and all scientific institutions. It is accurate when properly
constructed and used and is an infallible guide to the estimation of the
probable p*?rcenta_e of uranium oxide
the ore contains.
The instrument is nothing hut the
ordinary gold leaf electroscope used
for detecting electrified bodies, slight
ly elaborated. The container is n
glass preserve bottle six and one-
half inches high and three inches in
diameter at the base. The diameter
of the neck is two inches. It is fitted with a rubber stopper through
which passes a brass rod which Is one
eighth of ait inch in diameter. Inside the bottle it terminates in a
cross piece which is three eighths of
an inch long. To this are attached
two strips of gold leaf ench two inches long, one on either side. After
passing through th? stopper it is
bent into shape and has n disc fastened to it. The disc is of brass one
and one-half inches wide. In the inside of the jar two strips of tin foil
are glued, a half inch wide they are
and long enough to reach from half
way up on thc bottle's sldb to meet
the bottom. The bottle rests in a
brass cup, fitting it snugly. The rod
carrying the disc is soldered to the
outside of the brass cup and is, a_
is the disc, of brass.
That is all there is to it. It can
bc constructed by anyone nt all capable of neat work, and will give the
same results as one costing a consid
erahle sum purchased from nn electrical supply house. The precautions to be observed nre to
have the stopper mnde from n
good non-conductor, ebonite, hnrd
rubber or fiber worka equally well.
The shellacing of the top and bottom
helps in Insulating the apparatus
from outside disturbances, Have the
strips of leaf hang perpendicularly
and parallel! to the strips of tin foil,
To nftix them to the crOBBpl.CO n little white of an egg Is good, though
It ls a better plan to take the Instru
ment to a sign painter or book bindery and have them fitted there, as it
requires quite n little skill. Ma*cc
sure that the whole apparatus is perfectly dry and it is then ready for
If a piece of sealing wnx be rubbed

then lay the ores to he tested on the

of the lenvcs. If any radium is pres
ent their collapse will be mnrkedly
more rapid than tlio normal rate.
This is tho standard teat for radium
and by thi« means the presence <>f
