Continual Irom Inst wn-k.
To obtain the greastcst efficiency together with safety from
an electric plant there are several
points to be considered. Commencing with the steam engine
which drives the generating
dynamo, this is generally a steam
engine with a (lywheel attached,
to maintain a constant speed.
Such an engine requires a governor to control it to maintain
practically the same speed under
full and light load. Attention
must be paid to the cranks and
all moving parts with a plentiful
but not wasteful supply of lubrication. Au important point is to
have the engine (irmly secured
to its bed, so that no vibration
occurs, because such vibration
may be transmitted by means of
the belt to the dynamo, and
sparking at the brushes may ensue and flickering of lamps. The
belt between the engine and
dynamo should be a soft, pliable,
and not too heavy, either endless
or butt jointed in preference to
a lopped joint, which should run
perfectly straight.
From an electrical pom* of view
thc necessary parts of a dynamo
arc the armature, the field-magnet
thc commutator and the brushes,
each part performing a particular
function and demands attention
in the peculiarities of design.
Scarcely of less importance are
the mechanical details which may
be briefly summed up as follows:
ipeed-ind rigidity, correct design
of bearings, lubrication and efficiency for adjustment. Both these
departments should receive due
attent;on for safety and efficiency.
Special precautions should be
taken in having proper positive
and negative connections of the
cables and sufficient insulation
alt along the circuit to prevent
loss of current and danger from
live wires.
Switches for making or breaking contact should be thoroughly
protected and insulated and fusible cut-outs inserted near to the
dynamo in case of excessive
All motors should be prevented
from sparking as far as possible
and should be designed electrically to give the least possible
sparking, then to be completely
enclosed so as to be practically
gas tight for underground use-
especially coal cutting machines
at the working face, Thc motor
covers must be made so they can
be opened in the mine for inspection, the greatest precaution
should be taken to prevent sparking. In any belt connection the
same remarks as above are applicable and as regards pumps,
hauling engines, or whatever the
machine in connection with the
electrical installation may be it is
essential to have a sound and
firm foundation made and the
engine made secure.
In a large installation it is
better and cheaper to transmit
the electricity by a small current
at a high voltage as a thinner
and less expensive wire can be
used. The transformer can here
be used to advantage.
In electric-lighting, to obtain
an efficient light from the incandescent lamp, a vacuum must be
maintained and the cables should
have a low resistance, while the
filament in the lamp itself should
possess a high resistance. In the
are lamp the carbons must always
be kept the proper distance apart
and be made to approach each
other as they are consumed.

Victoria basket ball team de
feated the Courtenay boys at
Courtenay on Tuesday evening
by a score of 34 toll.
The Victoria basket ball, team
and champions of Vancouver Island arrived by auto'on Thursday
afternoon. The local team went
up against them in the Cumberland Hall on the same evening,
the building being packed with
excited spectators. The game
started at 8 o'clock, and it was
seen from the commencement
that the Victoria team were
superior at the game, although
the local team played well and
kept thc ball moving swiftly
through thc hall they fell short
at the net, and resulted in a
score of 25 to 6 in favor of the
visiting team, who are certainly
star players. Immediately after
the game the visitors were entertained to a sumptuous repast in
the Cumberland Hotel by the
local basket ball team. After the
banquet a dance was held, the
music being supplied by Messrs.
Parnham and Roy.
Courtenay is on the boom,
active business has commenced
and the main street is now lined
with building material. The
Builders' Supply Company have
commenced to erect a large addition to their warehouse. O.
II. Fechner, proprietor of the
the Riverside Hotel, is also
doubling the size of his hotel, and
when completed it will be the
most modern house on the north
end of tho Island. The foundation
for C. II. Tarbell's hardware
store is Hearing completion, with
several other buildings in courso
of erection. The C. P. R. have
their road graded into Courtenay.
R. A. Stoney, of New Westminster, representative in British
Columbia for the Typographical
Union, spent Tuesday and Wednesday in the city on an official
visit to the union printers in the
Islander Office. He left for
Alberni on Thursday morning.
Before returning to New Westminister he will visit all the
printing offices on Vancouver
Island. Mr. Stoney is a member
of the B. C. Labour Commissior
and reports that the commission
will resume its sittings on April
21st., starting at Mission and
working up through the interior
and coming down through the
Boundary country. It will be
September before the commission
gets in shape to submit theii
if the measure for the quantity
of electricity passing. The ohm
is the measure for the amount of
friction to be overcome, the unit
of resistance. The watt is the
unit measure of power antl is
equal to a current of one ampere
with an E.M.F. of one volt.
Thc amperes multiplied by the
volts equal the number of Watts
a dynamo gives, and 740 watts
Equal one electrical horse-power.
In last week's article, where it
was stated that in the event of a
cable becoming damaged by a
fall, and sparking ensue, damage
might be done, but in the event
of an incandescent lamp being
broken the risk of danger is
almost infinitesimal, the filament
being practically instantaneously
oxidised. Of coarse sparking
from a damaged cable would be
liable to set lire to the material
in the vicinity and do damage,
but in this respect the danger
from a broken incandescent lamp
the risk would be almost infinitesimal as the filament is practically instanteneously destroyed.
It must be understood that
these lamps are unsafe in places
where the mine atmosphere is
liable to become contaminated
with firedamp, as if a lamp became broken there would be time
enough for the gas to become
ignited between the time of the
lamp being broken and the oxy-
dising of the filament of the
lamp. In the article it was stated
that these lamps were only used
Nanaimo Men Ignore Strike.
During the last two or three
weeks we have heard repeated
rumors concerning Nanaimo and
mass meetings being held there;
of course given out by the agitators for the purpose of keeping
up Interest at this point. They
have been 'telling the people
for the last six months that
it would not be long before
Nanaimo came out on strike. On
making inquiries we find Nanaini
a prosperous city with no signs
of any trouble. The agitator
fails to make it go there, Nanaimo miners are too wise to be led
astray by such men.
The Nanaimo miners held a
general meeting of all members
of the medical fund in the Oddfellows Hall, Nanaimo, on Sunday last, to consider a new agreement between the -doctors and
the men.
For all their trouble and sleepless nights the agitators did get
one undesirable from No. 8 and
three from No. 7, on Sunday, but
the leaders kept their notes in
their pockets, the speeches were
not delivered.

Courtenay. Mr. Cokely purchased the car through E. C. Emde,
the Ford local agent.
Seven provincial police officers
arrived on Wednesday evening to
take the places vacated by the
seven officers who left on Thursday morning to fill positions in
other parts of the province.

Captures, Chinese
Some time ago tlie Superintendent of Provtncial Police sent out
a circular offing arc-ward of $500
and containg a picture of a
Chinaman known as Jay Kam,
alias Jay Kum Chum, alias Jay
Gum Lai, who on the 20th day of
February, at Mission, murdered
one of his countrymen by the
name of Jay Sum. The provincial
police were requested to capture
the murderer as there was a
warrant issued for his arrest
For the last two or three week-
Constable A. I. Stephenson has
been on the lookout for the
Chinaman wanted at Mission and
paid special attention to all new
arrivals. His efforts were rewarded by successfully locating
ihe Chinese murderer en Wed-
ne day evening in Isako's, a Japanese tailor shop at the corner of
Third St. and Dunsmuir Avenue,
the murderer being employed
there as a tailor. The officer,
satisfying himself that he had the

Devilish condescending of you, returned Rivington, but as it happens,
you can't see her, because siie has
gone away.
Gone away! gasped Gaston, his face
Rivington grinned. Yes. She
had a bad smash up, as you know, and
her head injured. She wasn't getting uny better, and she's gene to
a nursing home. Anything else
you'd like to know? I'm In a hurry,
and he made as If to go.
Easton, with a sinking heart looked at the black outlines of the house
looming up behind Rivington. Not a
sound nor a sign came from It, and
he felt instinctively that the man had
been leaving it empty when he arrived and. that now at least he was
speaking the trutih.
What have you done with her?
Where has she gone? he said sternly.
I Insist, on knowing.
Insist, said Rivington, turning his
backt  I'm going.
As he spoke, the throbbing of a
motor was heard in Ihe road outside
and in another minute a big car swung
Into the drive and pulled up by their
side with a jerk.
Rivington was a very strong man,
Easton a very active and athletic one.
Both had been losing their tempers for
some minutes and for a time they
fought blindly and without result.
But Easton was in the better training
for his life had been a harder one than
Rivington., and in a prolonged struggle training must tell. lie was already wearing the otlier down when,
witih an exclamation, tbo astonished
chauffeur recovered from his amazement at seeing his niasler and u
strajiger struggling ln the darkness.
He jumped down from the car, groped
under the seat, nnd seizing a large
wrench, joined in the fight.
Shall I hit him, sir? he cried dancing wildly round.
Curse him! Ves. gasped Rivington,
half choked and gasping.
And before Easton could take any
measures to guard himself, the
WTench descended on his head, once,
and then again, and he rolled over ou
hi* back, his feet drumming on the
Faintly be seemed to hear the car
back, turn and whirl off, and then he
lost consciousness.
When he came lo himself again,
darkness was still around him, and he
could feel that his head had bletl
freely, but staggering to his feet he
realised that h
young lady who was hurt, sir?
yes, she went with the nurse this
moraine, I'm told, but I didn't see bet-
go. Poor thing! I hear she was had.
and she's gone where there's more
conveniences than here. No. I didn't
hear where it was, no. Thank you
kindly, sir,
There was nothing more to be got
from the old woman, who it was evident knew no more, and Easton turned wearily towards home. He could
do nothing further lhat night, he felt,
and he could only hope that Neil would
come quickly nnd that after a rest
the morning would bring fresh light
to him where now all looked so dark
and hopeless.
Easton woke in the morning to find
Nell leaning over him.     The Major's
head   was  aching   badly,   und   for   a j
moment,  he  hardly   knew   where he j
was or what had happened to him.
Where is she? Wliere is Violet? ask- j
ed Ne.il eagerly, as the consciousness
awoke in Easton's eyes.
The Major sighed.     Cone, lie sent ]
her away yesterday morning.
Gone! Out what is the matter
witn your brad'; asked Nell.
He listened, frowning, while Easton told of his visit to Rivington's house
and his adventures there.
Hy heavens! What a scoundrel the
maii is, he snid. But we will win
yet.     Are you fit to get up?
Yob, rather. I will get on with my
dressing straight away. What have
vou heard? asked the Major, anxiously.
Not very much.     1 am not sure, at
least, 1 fear there Is only one person

Yes, nnd. Fate has helped Rivington
there, but we will get her out of his t
power. He won't murder her: he !
will know he could net escape us. Hei
will keep her if he can, however, and j
try to frighten her into saying anything he wants.
Easton ground his teeth. Come,
he said. I am ready. Let us start.
Surely togeher we can find her. :

exceptional, because, while other deputations   asked   for   something   this

Seely said:
After all, we want two things In the

ouly the machines; we want Ihe men
with the nerve and the courage and

1 can assure you that we are not losing sight of the national importance of
the science of aviation.

In another case, $500 was to be

Paris, France.—Exciting incidents
marked the trial of two C'amelots du
Roi, M. Charles Maurras, the well-
known writer and member of the staff
of the principal royalist paper, and
M. de Cotipigny. They were accused
of assaulting several persons who re-
fused to shout 'Vive le Rol.' The incident took place at Versailles ou December 1.
Aftor a banquet about 400 Royalists, or Camclots du Rol, went-to the
courtyard of the palace and made a
demonstration in front of the statue
of Louis XIV. According to the
prosecution, a railway employe, who
with his wife and friend, was about to
inspect the palace, was surrounded by
the demonstrators, and because he refused to shout 'Vive le Roil' he was
knocked down, and so badly hurt that
he could not work for a fortnight.
Two policemen who came to the rescue also received kicks and blows aad
five soldiers and a sergeant had to
fight with the rioters to prevent the
disturbance from spreading.
According to the evidence ot the
sergeant, who had several teeth broken, one of the prisoners threatened
him with a revolver.
The court was packed with Royalists, who frequently interrupted the
proceeding with shouts of 'Vive le
Roi.' The presiding magistrate was
M. Worms, and when he put a question M, Maurras said: You are a Jew,

Caused by Lumbago, a Form ol
Muscular Rheumatism.
Lumbago Is sudden In   Its   attacks
and is so Intensely painful that the
sufferer is often unable to move, eve_-
to turn In bed or rise from a chair.
The trouble    chiefly   occurs    among
working men, among whom it numbers
thousands of victims.     As the attacks'
come on quite frequently and are so'
torturing, this disease   means   much-
loss of time and money as well as tte
endurance of much   suffering.       No'
victim    needs    to be told that llnl-
mentB, plasters and outward treatment
will not cure the disease.     This kind-'
of treatment is merely a waste of time
and money.    The trouble Is realiy a
species of muscular rheumatism, and
is due to poor blood, and can ouly be
cured   through  the blood.    It  is for'
this reason that Or.  Williams' Pink
Pills are so successful in cut-ins this'
trouble,  and  those who are afflicted
by it should lose no time in giving
ihe Pills a trial.    If the treatment to*
persisted in the disease will be driven from the system and the cure be
made permanent.     In substantiation'

Enthusiastic Reception in Rome
Rome.—Recently King Victor Emmanuel reviewed detachments of the
troops which participated iu the war
against Turkey, and afterward accompanied them on tbelr march through
the principal stteota of tbe capital.
The king, who was accompanied hy
Queen Elena and his children, the
Duke d'Aoeta and other princes of the
house of Savoy, first Inspected the
troops In the Piazza Independence.
His majesty then placeJ himself at
the head of the column and led his
soldiers who were accompanied by the
regimental colors, through the Via
Naziouale to the enormous new statue
of Victor Emmanuel II, called the altar of the fatherland.
King Victor took up his position beside the statue of his grandfather and
presented a medal for each regimental
s'andard. The ceremony was the
most imposing of the kind that bas
hern witnessed since Rome became
the capital of Ihe kingdom.
The streets were crowded with enthusiastic spectators, who cheered the
troops and little Prince Humbert.

Success Crowns Scheme Now In Open
ation for Over One Year
London, England.—The practical
effort of the Ilev. C. H. Grundy, vicar of St. Peter's, Brockley, S.B., to
lesson the loneliness of life by helping j
suitable couples to meet with a view
to matrimony is meeting with a measure of success.
Mr. Grundy's scheme, Inaugurated
in the early part of last year, was to
keep a register containing the mimes
of young women willing to take husbands .who possess certain incomes.
My agency has done quite as well a.s
I hoped, Mr. Grundy said. Many of
the 140 letters 1 .have received came
from mere male adventurers: these I
promptly weeded out. Applications
for wives have come not only from
all parts ot Kngland, but also from
California, India, .Mexico and Australia.
One of the most pathetic experiences nas been the case of vicars'
daughters who are living in secluded
country vicarages attending to parents who are rapidly growing old and i
will shortly die leaving their daughters applicants for the many societies
whose function it is to keep together
the body and soul of those who are
grimly spoken of as decayed gentlewomen.
I was very sorry to he unable to
solemnize the marriage of my first
couple: but a previous engagement
prevented me. Hen- is an oxtract
from a letter I received from the bride
in answer to my card of congratulation:
We can never repay you for bringing so much happiness Into our lives.
We think ours the most romantic marriage on rscord and we both feel that
you were the Instrument, under providence, of bringing gas together.
A Becond wedding has been arranged and we hope in due time to be able
to announce It. But there are many
couples who nre In the Btage of an
early correspondence which will be
followed by Interviews. They are
maturing. If I may use the term. My
idea is not to bring about a large number of haphazard marriages, but by
careful selection and oppor:une advice to guide those who have the
needful qualities and suitable temperaments into a happy married life.

j the Irish novelist, loves a good story

, with the foibles and misadventures of
Irish pastors.     One ot his tales may
i he quoted:
;    A north of Ireland gentleman heard
] rrom the lips of a clergyman of the
i rteatli of an Inveterate enemy of his
who harassed hini for many years.
Well, he said, it's a comfort to think
that ihe devil's got that fellow at. last.
The clergyman, being a clergyman.
J felt bound in proiest against th's uncharitable view of Ibe dead man's condition,      lie insinuated a hope that,
in  spite of nil lhat bad passed, the
poor man might have escaped Ihe extreme penalty.
Well, said the other, if the devil
hasn't got that fellow, all I can say
Is that I don't see much use in our
keeping a devil at all.

Outrage Committed When Few Visi
tort Were in That Section of
Gal lei y
London.—An txuuordinavy out-
rage was committed at the Aational
tiallery recently, when four vaiuauie
oil paintings were damaged, the glass
each being smashed and the
tj.«-_ure_. iiuvKed. 'iLie dan_a_*e is e&-
.lii.a.ed at ubout $-"-".
A m.ddit-ago.i man, giving the name
>. Knitsi \,elch, cf Salt? rue-road,
Parksione, Dorset, described as a
must* painter, was arrested in coil-
action with "the affair and taken to
Vine Btr. ' pollco station and cuarged
. uh wilfully damaging the lour pictures. They are aa follows: Mrs.
Constable, by Constable; The Gleaners, by Constable; A Castle hy a
Lake, by Richard Wilson; Hadrian's
Villa, hy Richard Wilson.
The pictures are each about two feet
square and are all situated In room
_3 of the National Gallery.
The act was committed about half-
past three in the afternoon, and vory
few people were in this section of the
gallery at the time. Suddenly the
sound of smashing glass was heard,
and some of the officials who hurried
J to the spot state that they saw the
i mnn in the act of jabbing the pictures
I with a two foot rule; The rule was
'afterwards found to be broken.
Welch, when arrested, had about $:tt
or $40 in his pos^es^iun. He said
nothing when charged with the act at
the police station and -domed somewhat strange in his manner.
The officials of the gallery do not
despair of repairing the pictures, although of course the damage is great
from an artistic point of view.
Welch, who was somewhat shabbily
dressed, entered the gallery with
other visitors, no particular^ attention
being paid to him by the gallery officials. The outrage was reported to
Sir Charles Holroyd the directnr of
the gallery, who immed'ately investigated the affair, and the damage done.
Lord Balcarres, M.P., who i? a
trustee of the National Portrait Gallery, expressed the utmost indignation
at "the news of the outrage at the National Gallery.

Husband Victim of Crime Which Doctors Attribute to Shattered Nerves
Paris, France.—Mme l.amberjack,
the divorced wife of Jl. Laniberjack,
managing director of a motorcar company, was in Pari, assize court recently found not guilty of a charge of
homicide iu connection with her former husbuud's death. She was released.
M. Lumberjack fell in love wilh aud
married Mile. Virginie Dosou when h
was a professional racing cyclist anil
she was an embroiderer ai an establishment in tlie Kaubourg St. Honor..
Por several years they lived together
happily. But M. Lumberjack was
ambitious and made his way iu the
world, till lie was earning from $100,-
000 to $200,000 a year. With material
success their happiness came to an
end. Mine, Lumberjack reproached
ller husband with Infidelity. Quarrels became frequent and finally the
couple were divorced. Yet tliey con-
Unued to live under the same roof.
In June last year M. Lumberjack
decided to remove his sliare of the
furniture. Mine. Lumberjack reproached him and then shot him fatally with a revolver.
in the Indictment road in court
Mme. Lumberjack was described as of
uncertain temper and excessively nervous. Mme. Lainberjuck pleaded
that she never intended to kill M.
Lamberjack, and only fired when she
thoughet he had snntelied up his coat
js If to get his revolver. When the
president of the court asked her tf she
regretted her act she hid her face in
her hands and burst Into tears.
Two eminent physicians, who examined her, said she was the victim of
Paris life, and its harassing effect on
the nerves.
Woman Aasert That Statue of Virgin
in Cemetery Came to Life
Paris, Prance.—The town of Bez-
iers is immensely excited by a remarkable story, which is said to have occurred iu the old ceme.ery in the town
recently. Nothing will convince the
superstitious people that it is not true.
According to the story, which is
printed with much detail, a woman
was leaving the cemetery, where she
had gone to pray at the grave of her
husband, when she noticed a statue of
the Virgin covered wl.h moss. The
condition of the statue inspired hor
witli pity and she tried to wash the
moss from it with her pocket handkerchief. She declares thut the statue cume to life; that oue uf i's hands
touched the handkerchief and that a
voice said: This cloth is sacred now.
Keep it, for 1 have blessed It to thuuk
you for your act of piety.
The woman ran home to her cottage
and told her sick daughter what hud
happened. She put the handkerchief
on the girl's bed, and the child, who
has been paralyzed for several years,
sat up, got out ot bed and walked.
The statue is surrounded ull day by
cripples, blind men aud women, and
even children who are suffering from
some disease, lt was reported
among the townspeople that a blind
man recovered his sight and that a
lame man had thrown away his crutches and walked.
A number of unbelievers visited the
cemetery and openly expressed tiieli
scepticism. They were roughly
handled by the worshipers aud ejected.
A number of Women have organized
perpetual guurd round the statue,
and one of them collected money from
visitors whose hundkerchlofs she rubbed on the hands of the statue. This
was forbidden by the police, whereupon several gendarmes were attacked by the angry women. The leader
of the women who tried to Induce her
companions to precipitate a riot is uow
forbidden to enter the cemetery.
The bishop aud clergy have thus far
refrained from expressing any opinion
regarding the alleged miracle.
Specialist In    Mental    Disorders    Explains  Its  Effect  Upon  Ordinary
, Patients
l^ondon, Kngland.—The possibility
of golfers floc.lng to Harley street to
be cured of a tendency to top their
drives ur foozle their lnashie shots is
opened by the news that after hypnotic treatment at Guys Hospital a golfer
w-ho was off his game returned to the
links in splendid form.
He was an amateur plus player who
had suddenly gone stale from over
concentration on the game, and tho
method adopted by a Harley street
nerve specialis'. \.as to Instill in the
man's mind by suggestion the conviction that he wus just as good a player
as ever.
Some interesting opinions on the
subject were given by Dr. ISdwiu Ash,
the famous specialist iu mental disorders.
A game Such as golf, ho explained,
requires a very delicate co-ordtnatlon
of mind and muscle, which becomes
subconscious in the case of a player
of any skill. He plays like an automaton, and is ut ills best when he
does not trouble about his game.
Any flow of energy iu his conscious
mind, such as over anxiety about the
result of the match, or the Idea that
he is going to play badly, has the result of Interfering with the working of
the subconscious part. lt clogs the
wheels of the automaton.f
Now, there is no doubt that suggestion can remove that interference by
removing the particular ideas which
have blocked the free running of tho
automatic impulses which will all go
to the proper swinging of a club.
The hypnotic sleep state is not necessary, and In most cases is undesirable. My own method in such cases
is to get the patient's mind poised,
and then remove by suggestion the
Idea which is obstructing the subscon-
selous action of the brain.
Students suddenly faced with an
examination paper often iind their memories almost wiped out by the rush
of energy in their conscious brain.
The automaton which should reel off
dates and figures seems to get _
spoke through Its driving wheel.
Most people think it more foolish
to give than to receive.

future might bring forth.
Bertha's parents were bitterly opposed to then daughter's marriage wnn
