Wireless Telegraphy
Officially inaugurated
Greetings Exchanged Between the Mayors of North Vancouver
and Victoria.—Messages are Now a Possibility Within
a Radius oi Fifteen Hundred Miles.
The United Wireless Telegraph j
Company of America have erected I
a wireless station here, and is now
in operation—the first wireless
aerograms having been despatched
and an answer received on Friday
afternoon last. A (ull and complete equipment will be installed,
and H, M. Reynolds, superintendent of construction, confidently
expects to break records all along
the line in the sending and receiving of long distance mesuages.
Many folk have heretofore
looked upon the transmission of
messages without wires as
mythical, much in the same
light as did the people a generation ago, when Morse connected
two separate towns with his system ol telegraph). Two poles,
no and 124 (eet in height each,
have been erected on the eastern
end of Victoria park, also a sta-
tiun. Between these two poles
wires have been strung, which do
the wotk of the countless miles of
telegraph wires. From these to
the instruments in the station two
wires lead, which serve the double
purpose ol sending and receiving.
On entering the office one Ig
amazed at the sparclty of nni han-
i-.ru which the imagination ti.nl
stored up. instead of coils of
wire,clicking instruments and bells,
one finds on the operating table
two small boxes and an ordinary
electric switch, which do the
work. The method of sending is
simple. Electric power from lhc
sub-station of the B. C. F.lectric
furnishes the juice, which ii
stepped up from no volts to 125,
000 volts by a system of coils.
From an ordinary telegraph key
the message obtains its beginning,
passing along to a peculiar looking contrivance, which is tei nnd
the sparker. This causes the
electricity to jump from one needle
to another, a distance of about an
inch, which then passes out onto
Ihe pole wires and onto the next
station. For the purpose of
secrecy this little instrument can
be " tuned " in accordance with
the station to be communicated
with. A coil of wire, much resembling a large spring, acts 11
the tuner.
In the despatch of a message
the electricity jumping from one
needle to the other makes ones
ear ring, but the receiving is as
silent as a telephone receiver, and
worked much after the same style,
the instrument being placed over
the two ears and supported by a
head strap. Weather has no effect
on the use of the instrument, as a
message can either be sent or received during an electrical storm.
Four men may be in operation
here at the one time, sending messages to any part of the world the
instruments are able to reach, the
distance depending upon the
strength of the spark. Mr. Reynolds informs us that he expects
to get into communication with
Beaumont, Texas, a distance of
nearly 2,000 miles, shortly. While
the temporary wires were in use
last week the station picked up a
message from the SS. Monta Rosa,
plying between Portland and
Frisco, while she was endeavoring
to get the Mare Island naval station. It does not take a message
very long to reach its destination,
as the waves travel a distance of
1X5,000 miles a second—or the
same as light.
The United Wireless Telegraph
Co. has now a complete chain of
stations down the Pacific coast as
far as San Diego, Ca! , supplementary to its vast Atlautic roast
and (iiiil of Mexico systems. The
equipment is the embodiment of
the Sliiiuiather, De Forest and
other amalgamated systems, with
all their latest improvements,
which this company has bought up,
Provincial Manager C.L.Parker,
who has his oflice in Vancouver,
stated that messages would be received and despatched at twenty
per cent, lower than any of the
telegrapli messages, and that the
company guarantees the utmost
possible celerity in tbe despatch
and receipt of messages. A competent operator is in charge, and
the office is now open to do business.
Certainly Norlh Vancouver has
been fortunate in obtaining the
establishment of a wireless station
here, which places us in touch
with not only the coast cities, but
ships that are coming and going
on the Pacific which have the system aboard.
Clear Your Lots
Says Board of Trade
City Fathers Busy
On Tiresome By-Laws
Mining to Resume
On Seymour Creek
A syndicate of Arizona mining
men have bonded a group of
claims situated on the Seymour
creek, near the west fork, known
as the Bank of Vancouver group,
for a round sum of (200,000, a
substantial cash payment having
already been made the vendor,
Jas. Saulter, a well-known Slocan
mining man.
The Bank of Vancouver group
was located last summer by Mr.
Saulter, and the property has the
earmarks of a huge proposition.
The ore is copper, but carrying
high values in gold. The ledge is
upwards of two hundred feet in
width, and extensive prospecting
on it all last summer demonstrat.d
that the vein runs across the entire
six claims. At the principal showing the ore is exposed on face of
a bluff for fully eight hundred
feet  in height.   It  ii a natural
quarrying   proposition,   for   the
whore hillside is practically ore.
The property is easily reached
from North Vancouver over the
Old Lillooet trail, which passes up
Seymour creek and through the
claims. The grade is gradual and
the trail can bc easily made into a
wagon road. At present it is
blocked considerably with fallen
timber, and the government will
be asked to have it put into passable shape. Representatives of
the bonding syndicate are at present in the city awaiting the disappearance of the mow so that
they may go in and commence development. The syndicate will
develop on a large scale and will
have a big force of men employed.
The amount paid by thc militia
department for pensions for the
nine months ending march 31st
amounts to I27.747.79. The permanent force of the Dominion.is
now 2,737 men.
The regular monthly meeting
of the Board of Trade was held
Tuesday evening in the City Hall,
President G. J. Phillippo in the
chair. Alter the reading of the
minutes of the previous meeting,
several letters were read, among
them being :
From the B. C. Electric Railway
Co., enclosing cheque for defraying part of the expense in connection with the printing of the first
annual year book, now on the
The following letter from S.
Gintzburger, who is an extensive
property owner of North Vancou.
The North Vancouver Board of Trade,
Nurlh Vancouver, B.' C.
Genti.emhn,— 1 regret that I
have been physically unable to
attend any of the meetings of your
board, but I have at all times
taken great interest in all your
proceedings and appreciate the
good work you are doing.
One important fact impresses
itself forcibly upon my mind just
now, and that is the general
apathv of landowners in North
Vancouver in tlieir nijiecl to clear
their lots. Apart from the fact
that these mases of stumps and
logs arc very unsightly and will
not induce actual residents to
build homes in the midst of immense fields of rubbish, it should
be borne in mind that while town
lots can be cleared at a minimum
cost to-day, the same work will
cost four or fire times as much, at
a time, which is not far distant,
when it Mill not Ik- possible to use
blasting powder, and when lives
and property will have to be
specially protected in connection
with land clearing operations.
I think that the example given
by some of the companies who
have cleared large tracts of land,
might well bc emulated by the
the smaller owners, and a general
simultaneous effort on the part of
the citizens to clear and beautify
North Vancouver, will not only lie
of benefit to the community in
general, but by the greatly enhanced values of the properties
affected will more than repay the
outlay involved.
Personally, I am prepared to
clear all the land that I am in-
teiested in in North Vancouver,
but 1 feel that my single effoits
will be but a drop in the bucket,
whereas, if a general movement to
clear these unsightly lots were undertaken, a great deal could bc accomplished by uniting our stiength
and having the work done systematically and thoroughly by
competent contractors, on some
pre-arranged plan, to the satisfaction ol all concerned.
At this is really a matter of public interest, 1 take this liberty of
suggesting the matter to your
boatd, which mi) formulate some
scheme to further the idea I have
in view.    I am, gentlemen,
Yours faithfully,
Vancouver, B. C, Mar. 3, 1908.
Aid. Wm. J. Irwin spoke at
some length on the benefits to be
derived from such a course, and
stated that his firm, along with
several others, had a clause inserted in agreements to the effect
that purchasers should clear their
property. The city, lie said, was
preparing a by-law which would,
in a sense, have the desired effect,
insofar as the act calls for a distance of 100 feet on all sides of
lunlJiugs must be cleared of
stumps,   rubbish,   etc.,   as 1 fire
