Superintendent Gordon Presents a Report to the Council
on His Investigation of Power Development.
At the Inst meeting uf the City
Council, R. Gordon, superintendent ul
the electric light plant, who recently
returned Irom a trip east, presented to
the Council the following report of
his observations ol power developments:
"I have been asked by the Mayor to
report to the Council this evening the
result ol my inquiries concerning
recent power development in the Kast,
more particularly us regards the installation ol an auxiliary to our own
water power electric plant. Having
watched the progress ol the development ol gus engines during the Inst
ten years, one could not help seeing
that Ihere were it number of advantages in that form of power over the
use of steam, but the chief drawback
has always been the high cost ol fuel
suitable inr the production of a gas
which could be used in gas engines.
The second diawhack was the difficulty
ol governing the speed of a gaB engine
so as to maintain a constant speed
wilhnnt Huctuallon particularly when
applied to dynamos generating current
for use in incandescent lamps, which
ol course will not admit ol any fliiclu-
ation whatever. This last difficulty
lia« been fully overcome within the
last ten years by increasing the mini
her of cylinders on the inginc to Ihree
or more in the case ol single acting
engines and two or more in the case
of double acting engines.
In the matter nl economical pro
dilution of gas. different kinds of fuel
have been used, depending partly un
the lirst cost of fuel and partly on the
cost of extracting the gas. The lirst
gas engines were supplied with ilium
uniting gas from the city gas lighting
systems. Then gasoline was used as
being a mure portable fuel. Then
after the discovery of natural gas in
Pensylvania and elsewhere that form
of luel was utilized as being cheaper
than either illuminating gas or gasoline.
In Germany about this time experiments were being made with the waste
gases from the large iron smelters,
and, from the first proved very successful. Following these experiments
came others along the same line to
produce directly from coal the proper
gaB for use in gas engines at as low a
cost as that produced iu the smelter
furnaces, and after a number of experiments several patents were taken
out covering a system oigas producers
such as we now find in commercial
use. The use ol gas producers and
producer gas engines is ly no* means
new or untried. As far back as 1873
it was demonstrated on attual test
that from a 100 h.p. gas engine and
producer plant, 1.15 pounds ol coal
per horse power per hour was possible.
Since that time improvements in both
producers and gas engines have reduced this to an average of about one
pound ol coal per horse power per
On the 25th of last month 1 visited
the cities of Berlin snd Waterloo in
Ontario with the sole object ol seeing
the gas producer and gas engine plants
in actual operation and finding out
from the men in charge the cost of
power compared with that derived
irom steam.
The Berlin plant is owned by the
municipality and is under the control
of a board of light commissioners
elected by the rate payers and managed hy Mr. Ed. Philip tlie superintendent ol the plant. The plant
consists of three Westinghnuse gaB
engines of liii h.p. each and one ol
100 h.p. with one .pressure gas producer in operation and a second one
nearly completed. The producers
were manufactured by R. I). Wood k
Co., ol Philadelphia, and are rated at
250 h, p. each working on gas house
coke and 350 h.p. each using Anthracite coal as fuel. At the time ol
my visit, three of the engines were
running with gas from one producer,
hard coal being used, ln this plant
steam had been used Ior a number o
years. Now, the steam, with tlie exception of one boiler and engine, which
is kept in reserve, has been entirely
discarded in iavor ol producer ga-,
The effect ol this change has been
very noticable. Previous to the introduction of the gns engines the city
was called ou to pay a deficit ol $2f>0
per month on the plant. Atthe present time there is an average net pro-
lit ol about $250 per month, being an
increase ol revenue over expenditure
of ulioiit $500 pe month, Thc cost
ol fuel is not much less than it could
be procured Ior in Revelstoke, it being
$4.85 per ton of pea size Anthracite
delivered at the power house.
The maximum consumption ol luel
at this plant under the most (unfavorable circumstances has been ljj pounds
per h.p. per hour. The labor required
is only about one half of that required
for a steam plant of a corresponding
size, as no care need tie exercised in
feeding the producer, the coal being
placed iu a hopper and allowed to
feed itself.

while standing Idle is not ns great, us
in a steam plant and it would he un-
necersnry to keep a lire going to prevent freezing as in -. steam plant
during the cold weather. The cost nf
labor in operation would also be
considerably lower than on n steam
plant oi the same size, and the time
required for starting the engine after
applying the match to the fuel would
be only half ol that required for raising steam.
The lirst cost of a gas producer
plant would be ahnnt 5u per cent,
more, in place, than that of n good
steam plant, but the, difference in
economy in operation would probably
make it at least worth ihe trouble of
a thorough investigation.

It is a source of pride aud comfort,
alter years ol iabur nnd attention in
bringing one's estate, be it largo or
small, Irom a desert In a stale ol
beauty. All the toil and expense is lor-
gotten, once we have been able lo get
our In,mes and grounds in such a condition they are a delight in ourselves
and Iriends und un example lo fellow
citizens. One of the keenest enjoyments u mnn can have is to entertain
his friends among flowers and bowers
in shady nooks nud beside clear pools
more especially when these have been
evolved through our own thought ami
effort, Revelsloke, we are proud lo
say, has a number of guch homes, bul
to have all our efforts destroyed in n
lew hours, i6 n blow, bitter indeed, anil
more especially when it can be avoided. This is what is likely lo happen, and is already taking place to
s ine of the oldest ,,f our homes. Vie
allude :o the damage done to II. N.
Coursier's eslate this year by the Columbia river, which washed away a
considerable portion of land on .vhicl
he had taken great pains to plant a
cedar hedge, and nlso part ol his gulden. A. McKne is also in danger ol
tin- same thing happening to tin-
estate he is now taking such pains t
beautify. At tin- rate the bank is
going ii will not be many years befor
R Howson will consider his position
unenviable. We hear Irom all sides
"get the government to attend to thr
matter.'* (lur experience is that thc
government does a great ileal and is
always willing to assisl but the machinery of a government is so slow
that when it is ready, so nmcl
damage ha been done it takes a great
deal more expenditure to repair, than
it otherwise would had tin- repairin
been done nt the right time Before
long, il some permanent work is not
done, the river will 1„- washing city
property. The city will then havi to
expend large sums to'keep the river
back. Why not expend a lew thousands nnw and prevent the possibilit)
ol having t,, expend tens if thousands
later. By doing ilii- right when il t-
needul most and at the lime it will be
to the k-st advantage, it would benefit
the govt rnment, biivo some ol -air ln-st
homes, and obviate the expenditure ol
large sums in the future,
We ihink an effort »h,,uld U- made
to keep the Arrow lakes more oleai ol

lumber retuae dumped into the lake
has already been the cause ,,f c rn-
plaint on the pail ol the C, P. R.
iteameisand with good cause, ul

prevent a log  boom   breaking  away

be held ul the Yoho Purl; sometime in
July,     The purpose of lln- Clllllp is tn
finii le niembers of the club to meet ill
mountain regions of Canada nnd in
enable graduating niombers to qualify
for uctive membership hy climbing a
mountain at least Iti.iiiin feet abovo
sen level.
On Monday morning, July Utli, the
iltle 0.1'. R. town of Field, It. C, is
ull alive with hum and bustle. This
is the place of rendezvous for Ihe Yoho
camp Here is lho meeting ol fronds
and strangers, here is baggage of all
sizes, signs, colors and shapes, here are
geiitlemon well dressed to make good
impressions on arrival at citnip, while
other gentlemen with more common
sense are rigged out for climbing and
camping, Here arc ladies gracefully
gowned us though ready for callers in
the afternoon, while others lire rigged
out iii llieir curious bloomers ready
fir the cull of the wild, curious eyes
that h ,il not experienced much of this
kind of life and were naturally at
traded by these latter, but their ga/.e
was ever instinctively meet by the
quick Hash of the beautiful eyes which
seemed to sny, "look the other way
und mind your own business."
Leaving Field, some walking, some
driving und some riding the puck
horses, we joiirncd westward for about
three miles along the south side of the
Kicking Horse river und along the
linse of Mt. Bergen, The writer with
two others took the round about route
to see the natural rock bridge over
tlie Kicking Horse river. This is a
beautiful sight and is within a few
yards of the C. P. 11. track. The river
is compressed intc a narrow gorge and
is forced through two or three openings in the solid ruck through which
tho waters pour in white loam us if in
while heat, and with u great roaring
Voice. Over this turbulent streani
nature has built her own rock bridge
wido enough for mini to walk over, A
littlo cement lias been added so that
now a puck horse muy salely pass
over. After leaving this bridge we
soon jcined thc main road which
turns northwiird after rounding the
base of Mt. Bergen, and now for lour
miles we pass through a most beautiful |iurk rond. The road is perfectly
straight und is bounded on the east
nnd west by the toresl jiurk of beaiiti
lui spruce anil balsam. These treei
nre so lull, straight and beautiful, nud
the road out through is so narrow-
that in looking ii|i Ihere seems to be a
narrow uny iu the sky leading from
the zenith downward to tbe horizon,
and the horizon is meet by the sn,,u
capped mountains in the north from
which are coining the stream and
falls seeking their level in the valley
below. After u journey ol aboul seven
miles we reach the beautiful Emerald
Lake. We know why il is so 1111111111
as 8001! iis we see it. It is a lovely
expanse nl green water. 4,200 Ieet
above the sea level, nestling in the
forest at the north base of Mt. Bergen
mul surrounded by lofty peak* wbosel

The C. I' II. have 0 beautiful chah I

lunch, n little rest and a little time to
view the scene serene. We it
started oul (or the remainin

Mrs. Parker the secretary Irom Winnipeg, Miss Sutherland from Winnipeg,
Mr. Solomon Irom Cape Town, S. A.,

crowd turned now face to the lire and
now back, watching the steam arise
from their garments, feeling their
hoiils hardening on their feet und
their bones warping by the heat, until
long alter dark the puck horses arrived with om* baggage. Then with
the light of the candle we all scrambled like children for our togs and
having found the baggage we retired
to our tents with the woods echoing
and re-echoing good-night, good-night
Irom tent to tent. We wrapped ourselves in our blankets, laid us down
on our balsam inuttrass, slept till the
morning light and 110 one of all the

in a hurry nml did not go into tlie
subject with nny degree ol thoroughness, We uie surprised that tho
Herald published it. What we mv
about to sin i- applies to this part, uml
surrounding lection of the country.
We also wish to say that wc are not
iveddcd to any "interest," and only
wish to do what we think uur duty
towards dispelling Illusions and helping to tiring truth tu his own.
Wages lor mill men six years age
averaged ifiiii por month and board;
today the average is $3,0 to if III per
month and board. Bush men six
years ago received on an averago lf'10
to 1(35 per month and board, today
$111 to $,r)., mid board, Even nt these
wages the supply is not equal to the
demand. The eust of boarding the
men at present is easily 20 per cent
higher (ban six years ago. So much
Ior wages.
The Herald quoted $5 as the cost ol
putting logs in the river six years ago,
which is we think, about right, but we
have to "call" thc statement that they
nro put in the river today Ior the stunt-
money. Six years ngo most ol the
logs cut grew on or near the bank ol
the rivers or hikes. Today the lumberman hns to go hack on the hills,
making necessary the expenditure of
large sums of money for slides, Humes,
horses and camp outfits, (sleighs,
chain iron, etc.,) all other supplies
nlso being higher at the present time.
Six years ago areas that could be
purchased Irom the Dominion Government Ior $1000 now realize Irom ten
to lifteen times that figure. Tying up
large sums ol money, under a heavy
risk of loss by lire, Irom which there is
no redress in the way of insurance.
Provincial timber at that time could
bo leased at the the rate ol $50 per
1000 acres, now the rate is $115 for
1140 acres.
The fire risk on the standing timber
hns increased at least 25 per cent,
owing to tbe influx of settlers and the
consequent danger from fire spreading
when clearing land.
ltegarding the shingle mill industry,
we think it will be found on investigation that there is a danger, a lew
years hence, of this industry dying
out on account ol the inability to procure shingle bolts.
There are other numerous lacts
which we might cite hul the above are
sufficient to prove the incorrectness ol
the article alluded to. In justice to
one ot the largest industries ol the
Province we feel it incumbent to try
and dispel erroneous impressions,

As a matter ol (act, the negotiation
took nliout  two weeks.
During tlm! time Helen Thorpe
wenl through her disappointment
and emerged on thc other side. Her
nature wus nt onco strong nnil adaptable, One by one she grappled with
the different aspects of tho ense. and
turned them the other way. By a
tour de force she actually persuadod
herself that her own plan was nol
really attractive to hor. But what
ht-ari-'liieaks nnd tears this cost her,
only those who in (heir youth  havo
longer felt outhusiasm, nor gratitude,
nor anything except a dull feeling
that she had been unnecessarily dis-
couruged. And on his side, Thorpe
was vaguely wounded.
Thu days, however, passed in the
main plousurably for them both.
They were loud of ono another. Tin
barrier elowly rising between them
was not yet cemonled by lack of
ulleclion on either side, but rather

tio.i. Helen imagined Thorpe's interest in her becoming daily more
perfunctory, Thoriw louciod his sister cold, unreasoning, and ungrateful. As yet this was but tho vague
dust of a cloud. Thoy could not
forget that, but for each other, they
wars alone in tho world. Thorpe delayed his dupurturo from day to day,
maiding nil the preparations ho possibly could at home.
Finally Helen camo on him busily
unpacking a box which a dray had
left at the door. He unwound and
laid one side a Winchester rifle, a
variety o! fishing tackle, and some
other miscellanies ol tho woodsmun.
Heleu was struck by tho beauty of
the sporting implements.
"Oh, Harry!" sho cried, "aren't
they tine! What nre you going to do
with them?"
"Going camping," replied Thorpe,
his head iu ihe excelsior.
"This summer."
Helen's eyes lit up with a fire of
delight. "How nice! May I go
with you?" she cried.
Thorpo shook his head.
"I'm afraid not, little girl. It's;
going to be a hard trip a long ways
from anywhere. You couldn't stand
"I'm sure I could.   Try me."
"No," replied Thorpe. "I know]
you couldn't. We'll bo sleeping ou
tho ground and going on loot
through much extremely difficult
"1 wish you'd take me some-
whore," pursued Helen. "I can't get j
away this summer unless you do.:
Why don't you camp somewhere!
neiu-er home, so I can go?"
Thorpo arose and kissed her tenderly. He was extremely sorry that:
he could not spend the summer with
his sister, but he believed likewise-
that their future depended to a great
extent on this very trip. But he did
not say so.
"I can't, littlo girl; that'B oil.
We've got our way to make."
She understood that he considered
the trip too expensive for them both.
At this moment a puper fluttered
from thc excelsior. She picked it
up, A glance showed her a total ot
figures that made her gasp.
"Hero is your bill," she said with*
a strange choke in her voice, and;
left the (room,
"He can sjiend sixty dollars on hisi
old guns; but he can't nil'ord to lot
ine leave this hateful house," she;
complained to the apple tree. "Ho

tj have a good time, but he leaves
me sweltering in this miserable liltlti
town all summer, I don't care if he;
is supporting me. He ought to. i
He's my brother. Oh, I wish I were
a man; 1 wish 1 were dead!"
Three days later Thorpe left    lor
the north.    He was reluctant to go. \
When the time came, he attempted to
kiss   Helen   good-by.      Sho caught
sight of tho rifle in its new leather i
and    canvas case, and on a sudden.'

to herself, sho turned away her fnc- ]

the genuinely misunderstood are apt

trudged down the street.    Helen too*
paused at the door, choking     hack ,
her grief.
"Hairy! Harry!" she cried wildly;
but it was too late.
Both felt themselves to be in tho
right. Each realized this fact in tho'
other. Each recognized the Impossibility of imposing bis own point of
view over the other's.

j man.
j During the course of his week in
tho woods, he discovered that he
would be forced eventually to resort
I to this expedient, lie encountered
! quantities of fine timber in tho country through which he travelled, and
; some dny it would be logged, but nt
i present the difficulties were too
i great. The steeams were shallow,

Hie more practicable routes.
A cursory glance sufficed to show
that on such waters the little red
squares hnd already blocked a foothold for other owners. Thorpe surmised thnt he would undoubtedly
discover fine tinbought timber along
their bunks, but Hint the men nl-
reatly engaged in stealing it would
hardly be likely lo allow him jicnce-
ful  acquisition.
j For a week, then, he journeyed
through magnificent timber without
finding what he sought, working always more and more to the north,
until finally ho stood on the shores
ol Superior. Up lo now the streams
! bad not suited him. Ho resolved to
| follow the shore west to the mouth
' of a fnirly largo river called tlie Os-
snwiiinmnkee. It showed, in com-
j mon with most streams of its size,
land already taken, but Thorpe hoj>-
ed to find good limber noarer ihe
mouth. After several days' hard
walking with (his object in view, he
found himself directly north of a
bend in Ihe river; so, without troubling to hunt for its outlet into Superior, he turned through the woods
due south, with the Intention of
striking in on the stream. This b»
succeeded in accomplishing some
twenty miles inland, where also he
discovered a well-defined nnil recently used trail leading up the river
It led lilm for upwards of len miles
nearly din- south, sometimes approaching, sometimes leaving the
i river, but keeping always in Its
direction. The country in general
wns rolling. Low parallel ridges ol
gentle declivity glided constantly
across bis wny. their valleys sloping
to tho river. Thorpe had never seen
a grander forest of pine thun thnt

MERRY Ki'' used to say that, if
,tr a recommendation from
his lirst wife. If No. 2 should depend
upon the llrsl wife's reference, many of
the lords of ,-r, alii.n would continue In
single blessedness with no opportunity
to "endow will, all their worldly goods'
more than one overconfldlng woman.
Someone protests: "Oh, hut the marriage relation is a romantic affair nnd
forbids sordid money-considerntlon between the pair. It Is nil one Interest.
.Ill one interest loo often is true. Uut
which one?
Romance and sentiment starve In married life where one partner clutches tho
pocketbook and lho oiler's purse is por-
peluailv empty, or only now nnd then
supplied wilh n niggardly dole for which
nn account must be rendered, uus is
no overdrawn pleture. Along the various grudes of society there are wives
whose rights, In ihis reBpect, arc totally
Ignored by their Inconsiderate husbands.
The "poor rich wife" lms passed Into a
proverb because the stupid, hoary old
custom of regarding women ns dependent is still Ingrained In the genus homo.
The wife of n wealthy Now writ
man used to declare, with tears, that
she was constantly subjected to mortt-
lii-aliou because her splendid environment, elegunt equipages and cosuy
clothes, together with her husbands
well-known wealth, attracted mm
who were seeking subscriptions loi the

"And with teaspoons!" interrupted Mr-. Orei in-, gravely. "A man

"And raspberry pies I" Mrs. Ilis-

"Cherry pie is very good,

quoted Mrs. Sterling, merrily. "All

The vogue of coloi is especially apparent In table covers, in those particularly which are designed for summer

This new color work is developed in
many stitches, and the satin stitch, or
over-and-over effect, the long uud short

The use of lace braids as a part of
th' ib sign Is greatly In evidence, particularly in connection with the Uus-

It is a ruuiul red mark, varying

where there is any hair, the hair

Bronchitis Is a disease to which children of ull ages are more or less subjecl. It often begins as u .envy cold,
which goes on from bau to worse, until
bronchitis, and even pneumonia, may
develop, if piutnpl measures ure not
taken tu Biop its course.

"\  ^ OU need not be a member of any
\       learned profession to be a mls-
1 sionary, Many women are earn-
ing their way in the missionary
field and giving most valuable service, if
you know anything about medlclne,speak
several languages, are a Bible student
and have happened to study "first aid to
the injured," then you gn to yuur work
much better equipped than most of
those who will accompany you.
There are a few—1 hope only a very
few—who have no family lies and are
net only willing but anxious to take up
tliis kind of duty. Apply ai the missionary societies, the churches and
charity associations, Vuu may be asked
to go to China. You may be assigned
to look out for the distressed In lho
slums of your own city. Ynu may have
the good fortune to be made n "deaconess" and assigned to ;. railroad station in ynur own town, (ti all the missionary work outlined before you this
is the newest "good wnrk" taken up by
Uio missionary societies and churches.
The deaconess ynu find at the .railway
station, bout binding or wharf is a
dally comfort to the rich as well us
the poor.

services once when landing in a strange
cily at a late hour, not knowing Which
way in mm or what to do, The sweetest-faced woman in the wnrM came up

THRKE-plcce costumes hid fair to
solve the troublesome little problem of separate skirls and
blouses, Which have been, in u
measure, tu booed, yet despaired over,
by the best-dressed women, In the prettiest of them, skirt, tiny boloro nml
blouse are all embrnidered, ibe design
being adapted to suit tho different pans,
hut unmistakably ono and tho same pattern.
Even when loco Is lavishly used—made
o iinil of Ihe pattern—upo holh skirt
and blouse, It is omitted, as a rule, from
ihe bolero design, Trimming wiib heavy

and some of the sheer ones Imve va-

the lace is best left out of the design.
