Miss \J6hnson, of the International
News Bureau, . ,while in Fernie last
week; cokstnted to be, i*aterviewed by
a Ledger reporter. after her visit to
the great -power plant..at the CoaL
Creek mines,' and. gave,.him'a great
deal ol information - about motors,
transmitters and generators of- electricity! She was yuite enthusiastic
over the big' compressors" and -generators, "aiid.while; at the plant plied
the electrician,in charge with a great
many questions. ... .    --
In answer to .,  the reporter's- questions,, j-hc staled:       „^.j .
That the plant of .tlie; Crow's-Nest
Pass Coal Co. at* Coal.Creek,-is one
of the niost iip-to-date and productive institutions in Western . Canada.
The "steel tipple is a .remarkable t> c*-'
of engineering, spanning nearly Son
feet of the valley, and., conncctingi the
mouths of the * two'. tunnels, from
which thc coal is run out unto the
'tipple. , Uut ■ the power,house was
what T enjoyed the "most, and must
say that it is up to date in all departments, except the boiler room.
In tha power house proper, the interviewee explained *to the reporter j
that in every instance' the machinery j
had been placed to best'-advantage,
no compressor . motor or generator
occupying a position requiring the expenditure of more ' energy than
was] necessary to attain -the results
desired, while pulleys,- shafting and
belting could not be improved on,
In the main'body; of thc power
house the electricity is generated by
steaim, and-' run from the ^aerators of
which this,plant has 4 of 134- horsepower each, and 22b volts, to the
motors and alternators, aiid distributed into the mines, and to the City
of Fernie.   '■
The. motors in use by the company,
are a line . that cannot lx.'surpassed
being ol" the three phase type, , and
(rec from the pulsatory-action of thc
single  and- two phase .motors.
What is the difference between a two
and three phase'motor? inquired the
reporter.  .
■Well,, answered tlie interviewee, in
alternating the current, the flow of
energy is", pulsatory, "not1 steady, and
to overcome this! " the current . by
three phase gencia'tors is caused to
How with equal frequency, and like
t-Iic pistol's on - a three cylinder    en^
Uinc to move, .not one directly inline
with, the other, but to-'follow in succession, thus giving an cvenj-flow 01
yiiirgy instead of-the pulsatory motion secured from two pliasc lines,
The. armatures, of three, phasg- tnotom
ire wound iii "three separate "coils-.
,Thc motors ^ iu use by this company,
nrc'run by the electricity, arid give
the mechanical- power;.--or, hvo.ti.r
words, they lake up .the'energy tf nn
electric, currents from tlie,gcn.iM.urs
and convert it into mechanical cm
ergy. .The' mechanical action t.i ."hy
.opper coudtictoi carrying the current,
and the mngnjlisn.' of the nci'ghlior-
ing current makes this poii'.'.de. 'Ihis
mechanical energy is■ appl*:.-.-1» llif
operating of machines by having a
pulley on the motor as it rotates,
and another cither on the Jimchinc lo
ik operated or oil a pulley on a shaft.
I notice that it, re/iaired two five
hundred horse power motors to oper-
r.te the power for the mines, while
only a 250 horse power motor generates electricity for the town of Fernie, The voltage obtained from this
plant I understand to be 2,400, nud
alternated ou two alternators of 2,-
500; lights each that transform the
direct current from the generators Into alternating current, lo he used In
lighting the mines and hkMiscs of Coal
-Vccording to information received
fiom the electrician, I might state,
however, that llie lighting of Fernio
is differe-ni. The entire 2,400 volts
ure transmitted over a numlwr four
<opper line lo Fernie, where rtaih Individual lighting system -is e(|i)ii|<p.*d
with its own lrnn-i.oimer, rclu.-ing
tho voltage to the munlicr r«<|ui'-.ii,
On this line, however, there is only
one 250 horse power nilotnr, which, |rtl*<
lhon|gJi a very good machine, Is hardly millicltnl for what Is required ol
Was thero any other machinery In
llu building of Intercut, Inquired lhe
Vi't*. The company has nlso three
large air compivHsorH used in operating the hoists, drllU, pumps and
In ventilating lhe mine'.. Two of

Till me, huitl the reporter, speaking about the motors, "do those In
operation at the Coal Creek plant
give out ns much electricity as tluy
n-ifivc from tin* ?i*iirrn1nrs,
.Vn, oh nol' On a Unhorse power
motor operating at a speed of 1,200
revolutions, thcie is a friction loss of
nearly 90 per cent,, and this you can
apply in proportion, an I ttcllcve all
lho motors of this plant are of l,3nn
rivol.itii.n*, The principal Iowwh nre
due to trillion and armature heating.

The field magnet, which acts as an

wise manner. Besides the above essentials, there is a 'commutator and
a -number'. of' brushes that are used
to -obtain a sliding contact-, between
lhe conductors in"revolutionary motion and the wires, directing the current to the motors.   .   .
Well, then, is not a dynamo and a
motor the - same thing?
•"• Well, no, replied ihe speaker, but
a dynamo could lie used as a motor
if,the cm rent was supplied at the
proper voltage, and again a motor
cam 1ms used as a dynamo if the
proper speed is turned on to drive it.
