Difficulties in Construction were
Very Many—lllecillewaet is
Treacherous Stream
Thi' following account bl tbc build-
in*,' nt Revelstoke's new power dam,
by Engineer ll. .). Hafiner, appeared
in thr March number nf the Canadian
Electrical Engineer, and cives in
concise form some nl tbc difficulties
experienced in its construction,   Mr.
UnlTiUT says:—
Abuut fifteen years ago a private
company built the present power
plant mi the lllecillewaet river,
Ubout two miles wesl nl the centre
uf the eity uf Itevelstoke, generating
there 126 kilowatt hy water, diverted hy means of a timber dam at the
bead of a canyon, down which a
square Hume was built tor a distance
of fifteen hundred feet, about half of
whicli was under pressure, terminating in a steel casing in a wooden
power h.uisc. On one side of this
casing was a SOC h.p. Samson tur -
bine designed to operate under a
head of thirty-seven feet. Tbe single
phusc belt-driven generator was next
duplicated on the other side of thc j
turbine and  later  a three-phase  ma-
gate valve
No. 1 Is gated from thc penstock
by 48 horizontal valve. Tho old
flume enters the power house on the
line of penstock No. 2which will replace it and will Berve units No. 3
and No. 4, which will be duplicates
ol one and two; and will, in addition
have a connection to No. 2. The
next step in development, will he the
addition of penstock No. 2 and completion of unit 2 and units 3 and No.
•I may be added when the load in.
creases.     Tho  IStD k.w.  generator at
' present operating from the jack
shafts    from turbine or gas     engine,
• will bo finally moved and belted direct to thc gas engine. No details
in regard to switchboard gullery,
machine shop and boiler room have
been worked out.     Unit No. p     has
, been built In a separate building and
tbc new switchboard for it placed
therein temporarily.
i The old plant had a rated capacity
of 400 k.w., 2M k.w. of whieh was
single phase and 15n k.w, three
phase. The old casing ami turbine
are still able t0 operate Irom tho
old Hume, and a new 2fiflk.v.a. three
phase machine has been installed on
the old foundations to replace the
single phase machine, whieh will now
be sold. Unit No. 1 consists of a
'.umi h.p. single runner spiral easing
turbine, manufactured by the Jenckes
Machine company, directly connected
to a 4&ii k.v.a. three-phase sixty-

John Mclntyre Sr Son
I'b.ne of 150 k.w. was installed on the
same shaft to carry the power load.
This plant was bought by tho city
in 19-93.
On account of severe frazil
slush ice conditions peculiar to
turbulent mountain stream, it
decided about five years ago, to install an auxiliary gas producer plant
with a 1*25 h.p. engine, belt connected to the same shaft as the turbine.
The turbine shaft operated at a
speed of 275 revolutions, and the
engine at 175.
In the winter slush ice would sometimes block the lllecillewaet for a
distance of three miles to its junct -
■ ion with thc Columbia and back
into the tailrace, which was connected with thc river channel, and
about eight feet above low water.
I Tae discharge of the river has a very
large variation (as far as has been
determined to date being estimated
as high as forty to one). Owing
to land slides and avalanches it is
estimated that the discharge has
been as high as twelve thousand cubic feet per second for a short time,
while its low water flow is estimated
to be as low as three hundred. The
main line of the Canadian Pacific
Railway is built in tbe north wall of
the canyon overlooking the old dam
and flume, and any proposed development had to keep ihe water level at
Hood at a safe distance below the
rnils. Thc scour of water over the
old dam had eaten away a large portion of the schistose rock below thc
dam, undermining the timber apron
and carrying away timber crib sup -
ports and protection for the flume
immediately below tho dam.
In November, 1009, it was decided
to construct a new permanent dam
at a Point about two hundred
below thc old one on a reef in
bottom of the river extending
tween an overhanging canyon
on the south and a solid rock point
on the north side of the canyon. It
was decided to build this dam to o
height siiflliient to create as large a
pool as possible above for handling
the frazil ice; to provide sluices to
maintain a constant head at a safe
distance h'.'low the railway, and to
connect thi. power house and old machinery with a new six-fo0t wooden
pipe line replacing the old flume.
It was later derided to raise enough money at the same time to install a new unit and change Irom a
single phase to a three pbaHc current
for distribution in tbe city, rcmod -
tiling aa fin rs possible, thc distribution system  therein.
The dam is built with large construction sluiceway, blow off for
li,nulling silt and anchor lot close to
the rack bars, with an intak.i at
right angles to thc stream provided
with two sets of rack barB and provision for steam heating of same
in very severe conditions, together
with stoplog sluiceway taking the ice
raked from the rack bars.
The power house layout was designed t,, meet existing conditions,
and allow ot gradual replaceni nt of
old plant without Interfering with
operation. Thc 1910 addition to the
power linise is of brick on concrete
foundation, and thc proposed cx-
tensi'.ns ,,f this t0 take in thc three
.additional units. Penstock No. 1
was built t0 serve units No, 1 and

Rev. J. W. Stevenson, of Keewatin,
Takes Charge of St. John's
Taking as his text "Love Never
Faileth" and elucidating bis subject
by the very commonplace illustration
of the dog listening to his master's
voice in the phonograph, Kev. A. M.
McCoIl, of Arrowhead, preached the
induction sermon last night in St.
John's Presbyterian church, which
officially installed Rev. J. Vi. Stevenson of Keewatin, to the pastorate of
that church.
In  the    23rd     Psalm   Mi.    McColl
pointed out was the familiar note of
the Master's voice.     It supplied      a
working principle in life.     We      can
hear the     Master's voice in it      although the Master himself is not visible to the mortal eye. This familiar
I lone  is  traceable  in  no other    voice
nnd so long as the church,  its    pas-
; tors     and    its  people keep      within
I sound ot that voice they cannot    go
I    Rev. W. C. Calder made a few very
appropriate       remarks  in  addressing
the newly-Inducted     pastor.     He instanced the peculiar conditions    that
. surround     a minister's life in      tbe
j West, and contrasted these with   the
j conditions as they exist in tbe east.
I As a member of the congregation he
j welcomed the pastor to the ministry
j of  Revelstoke  and  assured   him    the
hearty support  of  the   congregation.
Rev. C. N. White, of Field, addressed  the  people  and referred  to      the
strategic  position  in  which       Revelstoke is placed.     Its inland position
geographically  proclaimed  it as    tho
convention city of the interior,   and
being      the pivotal city  its  influence
was greal.     The surrounding     cities
and  towns    would  watch its actions,
an.l be largely Influenced by what it
did  anil   therefore Revelstoko    should
s,e  to  it that she sets nothing    -but
the  best  example  of clean   and   pure
living.     "The     surrounding      cities
would     be largely as Revelstoke is,"
Mr.  White remarked.
The new minister of St. John'a
church comes very highly recommend
ed as a live, alert anl progressive
pastor. He will occupy the pulpit
tomorrow at both services.

New Business Being Light-Old
Questions Are Dealt With and
Wiped Off Siate
Last night wns hoiiscclenning night
at thc civic board. During thc past
year or so a number of barnacles bail
collected about the civic ship and
tho council decided, since little new
business was in sight to get. to work
and scrape these oil. Kor years and
years Frank Merino had been asking
the city council to reimburse him for
certain damages done to bis land
on the lllecillewaet, and each year
the amount was getcing bigger and
bigger. One year it was $5*01) he
wanted, the next $750 and now the
council considers that $%''!) will be
the high water mark with them.
"Something should be oflered him"
suggested   Alderman   Abrahamson.
"Well, we have an agreement with
him giving us thc right of ingress
egress and regress to bis land for
ever aird ever," explained Clerk B.A.
This wns something new to the
council, and changed the whole situation. Aid. Abrahamson was curious and wanted to sec this elucidating document. Accordingly it was
dug out of thc big safe and sure
enough everything as tbc clerk had
said was there. That of course settled thc discussion and tbe fire, water and light committee will have a
heart to heart talk with Mr. Merino
over the matter.
0. B. Gillan's account for legal
work last year was anotlnr barnacle
that was eventually scraped from
the civic ship last night. This account of some $35 was contracted
last year during the absence of city
solicitor Briggs. Mayor Hamilton
explained that it was Mr. Brigg's affair, he had made the arrangements
with Mr, Gillan and the council paid
Mr. Briggs his retaining fee. Mr.
Briggs, he said, had tendered him
his personal cheijuc to settle the account but Mr. Gillan would not take
it. Alderman Sibbald would move
that the council pay the amount with
the suggestion tbat it was thc easiest and cheapest way out of the affair. Alderman Barber objected on
the ground that Mr. Briggs had employed him, while Alderman Abra-
hamson's opinion was that if the
money was coming to Mr. Gillan
from the city thc city should pay
him, however, he did not see that
the city had any right to meddle in
lhe affair.
It was finally moved by Aid. Sibbald, seconded by Alderman Barber,
that the amount  be paid.—Carried.
Are we going to pay anything on
Mr. Newman's progress estimate for
February?     Asked  Mayor  Hamilton.
Aid. Sibbald—There may be teas -
ons why this should bc paid, but I
don't know them.
Alderman Abrahamson—I see no
reason why we should hold the money. It is coming to Newman and
should  be  paid.
Mayor Hamilton -I think it would
bc better to pay him $151)0 on account wiihout prejudice pending final
settlement. Wc must have receipts that all accounts arc paid by
Mr. Newman before final settlement
can bc made, and wo can't get these
until  ihis progress estimate is    paid.
Aid. Sibbald—So long aB wo aro
not Compromising ourselves I have
no objection to this, but I think wc
might as well pay it all as part ol
Moved by Alderman Sibbald that
$1.11)0 bc paid to Wm. Newman and
Co. ou account of progress csiimatc
without prejudice.
Mr. Newmun wrote the council

Monday will he voting day ou the
two bylaws to ra.se num.■>'—the one
lor the completion of the power plant
and the other to purchase road machinery. The council, the merchants and the citizens generally,
want them both passed and pa Bed
by large majorities. The sum ot
(50,000 ior the completion ol the
power plant is a legitimate debt and
however badly the people (eel about
the aggravat.ng delays In tb: completion ol the plant and tbe mismanagement in Connection with the
same, it would do no good Ur refuse
tbe money at this time to wipe the
debt ofl the municipal slate. Somehow, sometime and somewhere the
debts in connection With the plant
must be paid, and must bc paid by
the citizens. So why not now as
well as any other time? There is
no use letting tbe matter drni: along
and the unpaid balances draw in-
terest; there is no use forcing the
council to take lunds Irom other ac-'
counts to meet these debts, and
there is no use forcing them to seek
Bpecial legislation — which will cost
the citizens still more money—in order to pay ofl these debtt. Th.' best
thing by all means to do is tL. vote
the money and clean the whole matter up, Tbe voting ot the money
does n t necessarily mean Paying lor
the work before it is louud satisfactory. It simply places the money in
tbe hands of the council to pay oil
thc accounts wh n tbe work is certified satisfactory by the engineers,
and so found by the council tbem-
selves.     Vote for the bylaws.

Soldiers Were Employed as Detectives and One Played the
Hero's Part
In Vtterbo,  Italy, one of the most
sensational   trials ol modern times is
now under way. Somo thirty-six men
are on trial  for a hundred  crimes,     of
which the charge of having murdered
Genoro Cuoccolo and his wife Maria,
is the chief.   The prisoners nre     all
members of   the   Camorra, and    the
trial  is simply  a  desperate effort on
the part of the government of Italy
to    break up this    notorious    secret
It is understood that  King Victor
i'linmuinel is really responsible for
j the action of the authorities. Por
i iiiiiny years he has regarded the cx-
'. Istence of the Camorra ns a blot on
the  Italian nation, and when it was
brought to  his attention    that    the
brigands     were  tiuarreling      among
themselves,  be  nud  Signor Fani,  the
minister of justice, seized  the opportunity to declare war upon the      organization.
It was the murder of the Cuoccoloa
that gave  the authorities their due.     0n  Monday  and Tuesday evm'ngs,
The man had been known t0 them as  the  annual convention  of  the  Nicola
lei-ins with a number
criminals  whom he sUBpectod  to    be
, inn ol them, a young coachman,
named Abbatemagglo becamo his par
■ liciil,ir friend, but ninny inoiulis el-
lapsed before lh.* coachman trusted
his new friend enough to give him
any iufiu'iiintiaii about the Camorra.
A i length he admitted that he was a
member ol it, and he agreed to help
I'ltpizzutti   to  Join   the  society.
Finally, the detective was admitted to the ranks of the bnnd, ti ii. I
was entrusted wiih some petty
crimes, the proceeds of which he was
forced to surrender to bis superiors
in the society. lie was not able to
penetrate far Into the secrets of the
Camorra, but by rlvettlng his friendship with Alilinteni.iKiio, by the
loan of some money,
good insight into
personality of the Neapolitan band,
When the proper moment came and
tbo yoi.n*; coachman had sufficiently
Implicated himself, the officer reveal*
ed his identity. He gave Abbato-
magglo the alternative ol going to
prison for life or contlnuo to act   as
informer. The young fellow i ll se.
the latter coins*. and now shares
wnb I'ui'izziitii ibe honor of exposing the band ol murderers. He prevailed on Beveral other Camorrtsts
to make confession, setting the example hlmeel'f by a blood-curding
nn native.
Cuoccolo und his wife were murdered because be had been a traitor to
the Camorra, and because she would
have been able to guess at the identity of her husband's murderers had
she hern permitted to live, Cuoccolo
was at once a traitor mil n tyrant,
nnd ns a member ol the Camorra
sought to become its leader.
Tbe real chief, Enrico Allan i, who
is now on trial, decreed that the insurgent should die, Hall a dozen bandits were thereupon despatched to
murder him, and afterwards to sil -
ence his wife. A dimmr was then held
in honor of the occasion, and the
chief of the Camorra drank to the
health of the murderers on their return. Had it nol been for tha determination un I mcrgy nt the Indian government in tgnorln ; (hi Neapolitan police while investigating
tbe case the health ol the assassins

The Revelstoke footballers held an
initial meeting on Wednesday evening last to lay plaus for a season's
work and as a result there will probably be at least one or two loot-
ball teams in this city this summer
to uphold its reputation. The meeting, while not large, was nn enthusiastic one and certain preliminary
arrangemenis were ma le for placing
the Revelstoke Football Association
on a working plane. A secretary
w*ai- appointed to get into communication with all probable players and
enlist their interest and it was arranged ihat a meeting be called for
next Tuesday evening ty formulate n
piau lor tbe season's operation. The
breed of lu»tball which will be play-
ed Will be the association variety,
a:;J 'he large number of new recruits
made up ol newcomers and old tim-
ers here, will ensure a lively interest
in the game this season. Everybody
who has the slightest interest in
chasing thc pig skin is urged to turn
out on Tuesday evening and give
the game a boost. Kevelstoke
wants all the sport ii can possibly
secure (or the coming summer mouths, and football must be included in
the list. Let there be a big turnout
on Tuesday evening.
Tiie match pool game between F.

I into force, nnd loud erics ol lamentation resulted.      while the ball soem
led  to  travel nicely   when  lirst smit* -
| ten, it lost its shape In most ania/-
icaling fashion. This was only logical. To prove it just take a chunk
of rubber uud a chunk ot cork. Then
wallop each chunk with equal cruelty. Thc rubier will return to thu
original shape with tireless good humor, but Uu' e irk will soon liatton
out and go to pieces. Quod Brat
demonstrandum, by heck!
Late in thc season the makers managed to get the  proportions of cork
' and rubber better adjusted. Some
nifty whanging ensued. The bats -
men seemed to fasten their tangs in
the  September  edition  like       hungry
[ wolves, and there wus some elegant
hitting. Educated by these lacts, '
the manufacturers did (urthor expert- '
menting during the winter, und it is
now alleged that the ball will be
just what the pitchers like to throw,
nnd  yet just  what  the  batsmen  like
' to sting. 'Tis well. We wanted it
that way.

The design of the dam is interesting,  in view  of its location  upou    n
micaceous schistose rock      on      the
north side,  which WaB seamed      with
quartzlto and very treacherous     und
faulty,    which in  thc centre of      the
stream came in contuct with a later
| intrusion of more evenly     laminated
layers  of  diorlte.      This  south    wall
of   the  canyon   was   precipitous,       its
top   overhung   the   base  about   twelve
feet.     The dam was located    on the
tool connecting the two   walls     and
given  the form  of an arch upstream
by     the bond in the dam near     the
north end.     In this way, and taking
advantage of the position of the wull
mi   the south side,  it   was possible to
lighten the section ot the dam,     to

Ity io handle these   by   a     compact
an.l  overhead  traveller,  were  advantages not, often  obtained. The  lllecillewaet  is  one  of  the      most  dillicult
Btreams of the  province to      handle
in Hood, due to the immense amount
of  silt   carried   in   suspension,       and
the   large  quantities  of  logs       which
come  down  the canyon.  It is  Intended t,, handle these latter by    booms
iu  the  pond above.     The most dilli -
cult problem  in  design  was  to      obtain satisfactory sluices at a minimum cost which would     satisfactorily
permil  of quick operation mid maintain a  eonslanl      head  during  Hood.
The  location  of  tho dam in  the  canyon  so situated   In reference    to    the
railway track and with no possibility of enlargement of spillway     area,
Without   tunnelling  on   the  south side
had to be mei   by construction      ol
gates which could be lifted     clear —
were not too large—and yet      would
penult of passage of drift      through
them  over      the    crest.       Tbe  piers,
therefore,     had to bc made as small
with  strength and    are
f one hundred feet
between thc expansion joint and the
power and diversion Humes. These
were built on the slide rock from the
railway cutting above, and it was a
dillicult problem to carry them over
thc dam site. A concrete cut-oil
wall under the iiuwatcring Humes
was built on the line to the north
wall. It was found impossible lo
complete this portion of the dam lurther, until tho last thing in the
spring, after Ihe footings on the
south side had hei n obtained by diverting the water b\ a second cotter
dam Into Sxl2 sluice above mentioned. Serious delays when this stage
of the work had bein reached caused
grave apprehension that it would
not bo possible to complete the dam
before high water; and it was necessary to carry on the work with this ]
possibility in view so as      not      to ]
jeopardise the safety of the supply of  Uii consistent ^^^^^
power for the city until high    water .heavily reinforced with the best steel
hnd subsided.     A short shut     down
ol  ihe     power    plnnt wns necessary
when  the  power  flume  was cut,    and
the lootings under the    lower     rock
slide.  Immediately below the railway
track  on  the down stream side      of
the dam.  were  being excavated    and
concreted.      This   work   it   was  necessary      to  push   forward   In   lhe  early
spring, night and day.     Twice     the
water  rose   In  the  river  lill ng      the
8x12   spore  and   threa tiling   to       get
beyond  control.     Finally    the      new

water will not be required for
years, and until that time the
gatet will not be installed in
ihe openings.
Tlie handling of the frazil ice, as
above indicated, is one of th' chief
points in design, and the gate-house
with the rack bar*- will indicate the
method adopted. Water is taken ill
between eight and twenty-five feet
below the surface, and the rack bars
are situated so as to take advantage
of a minimum amount of water to
slush the accumulated ice through
the 1,5 ft. sluiceway. Thc blow-ofl is
situated at thc foot ol the rack bars
under n ll('ad of forty feet and will
