Handsome New Structure Soon
to be Built
The pinna aB submitted by the
architect for the new Molsons bank
building on .McKenzie nventie hnve
been approved with one oi two minor
alterations. The work of construction will be commenced ns soon as
tho weather permits. The new structure will be handsome nnd imposing,
having a magnificent front ou the
comer of McKenzie uvenuo nnd First
street. A leatnre of tlie portioo will
he two huge monoliths ol stone supporting a richly ornamented facade.
There will be ample accommodation
for the manager's living quarters up
stairs, besides bank ollices, vaults and
ollices for rent. All that will now be
wanted to make that corner as imposing as any in other cities will be a statue
characterising "civic progress."
A Brief Description of Salient
In our l»8t issue we gave a brief
description ol the new gas engine,
and now for the benefit of those who
are d, ubtlul as to how a gas producer
is operated we give a short summary
of the salient features of the producer
itself. The gi.-1 of a gas producer is
the pissing ol steam and air thiough
red hot conl the resultant, gas being
washed and cooled is then suitable for
the engine. Tlie suction type producer which has been installed in the
power house by the Canada Foundry
Co., means that as the engine piston
goes forward it draws a charge of gas
from the producer automatically. The
plant remains under less thau atmospherical pressure, consequently there
is no [tar of any explosion. The producer itself is built of rivctted steel
plates, no cast iron being used, as is
olten the ense, and the chance of
cracking due to sudden changes of
temperature caused by the atmosphere
or by the injection of cold water ou
hot metal, is thereby eliminated. In
order to raise eteani in the plant different makers use two principles.
(1). A system of internal vaporization, where the cast iron boiler type,
situated inside the producer is need.
(2). .Vu external system where hot
gasaes from the producer gives up
heat to some system of boilers which
difler in style in various makes. The
Canada Foundry Co. use the latter
system since it possesses certain ad
Ca). The external vaporizer can be
cleaned while the plant is in full operation and without disturbing the
main points of the producer.
(b). This system avoidB troubles
when bard water is used.
(c). It utilizes otherwise waste heat
iujgasses for raising =tcam, instead of
extracting bent from the tire itself
which is noe economical. Besides the
external vaporizer, the local system
h is a patent lor raising i-Uuni by injecting water through a coil on a steel
plate below the fire cage, which is
heated by heat taken from the nshes
and radiation trom lire bars. This
source of heat ia always ready at any
time tbuB avoiding delay until outgoing gasio give up heat to the external vaporizer. It is possible to raise
stern! necessary for tho complete plant
by the coil only while the external
vaporiz ir ii" being cleaned, or other
wise out of use, without interfering
with the continuous operation ol the
plant. The external vaporizer used is
p.iteuted by the Oanada Foundry Co.;
it is simple and ingenious in pattern
(■on-,sting ol a ;al g'_ covering the
cast iron pipe, the gcuge acting as a
distributor of water over the pipe's
surface thus jacketing the pipe itself,
tthieh carries away hot gases to the
angiie with a thit. film ol water which
is quickly turned into dry steam, in
looking at the process the patents
will be found to cover many esentisl
features in gi producers. An thru
cite coal, coke or charcoal can be used
a email qui. itity being used every two
hours. The I avenger device on tht
engine prevents nil pre-ignition while
the Bcrubbcre In the producer ensures
absolutely pure and clean gas. The
engine can be started in fifteen min
ule- at ordinary times and when tbe
lire is banked over night, in six min
Central Section will be Commenced in April
Arrangements have been concluded
between the city and T. F. Sinclair for
the construction ol the central section
of tbe sewerage system in the city. It
may lie remembered thnt the council
of 1(107 made a contract with Mr
Sinclair f r the construction of the
oompiete .-, »tem as SOOn ns the debentures for the same were sold. Nothing
farther was done, except that when it
was found that it Would be iiiiadvis-
nlilc to construct the whole system nt
once, the council of 1008 tried to negotiate for the construction of lho
central scctiou only, as being tlie most
necessary of any part to be constructed
living to Ihe (illhy state ol the cesspools in that locality.
Mr. Sinclair met the council last
Friday and Saturday and after going
over the whole question he agreed to
do the whole of the excavation work,
manholes, etc., of the Central section
for 10 per cent over and above the
price origina'ly named for tbat section
when the contract Inr the whole work
was let, the ten percent to be returned
to the city when the whole work is
completed. The price for the central
eectiou work will uow be figured out
at that rate.
Wurk will be commenced about the
middle ot April, a large number of
men being employed, most of whom
will be local men. The central section extends roughly from tlie V.JI.C.
A. to the School and will necessitate a
great, amount of excavating. The
question of what material will be used
for pipes will be immediately taken up
and whether it will be advisable to
make them locully of cement, bisideB
other matters relating to filter beds,
septic tanks, etc. This coming spring
should fdiow great activity in local
Revelstoke Makes Application
for Dominion Exhibition
One of the most important movements that has ever been taken hold
ot in Revelstcke is the suggestion that
the Dominion Governmsnt shull be
asked to grant the Dominion Fair for
Revelstoko in 1911. The question has
been freely discussed by the Board of
Trade in open session and also in
committee, with the result that a
communication has been sent t i the
department at Ottawa making the request. It is claimed that Revelstoke
can justly make this request, being in
a centrui poeition iu the province ard
accessible from all parts of tbe Dominion. This bold movement is
backed up by the city nnd district as
a whole, besides iiBving the support
nnd co operation ot adj lining sections
of the province.

Revelstoke and Columbia District Suitable.
We note witli interest that the

The Fruit & Produce Exchange
of B. C. Ltd., Feb. 2-3
A general meeting of this organization will he held on February 2nd and
lird in the city hull. The business to
be transacted will bo principally a reconstruction on n larger scale in regard
to capitalisation and scope tor operation.
Representatives from the O.P R
Freight Department and Dominion
Express Oo. will be present, Representatives from tbe different wholesale
centres have nlsn signified their intention ot being represented.
A general discussion of transportation facilities, rates aud methods ol
handling the production from the
different districts will nlso be a principal feature of the convention.
The convention will bo, we think,
the first meeting held in the province
at which were gathered representatives
of all the organizations connected
with tlie distribution of the fruit production ol the province; the producer,
the carrier and the distributer.
Beneficial results to the industry
will be certainly derived from the discussion at the meetiug and local interest Bhould be well represented.
$27,000 Saved to Children of
B. C. Schools.
Since the establishment Inst July of
the system of tree achool books, the
Hon. Dr. Young states that he has
saved the 35,000 school children
1(127,340 for theae supplies. That is
tiie amount they would have had to
pay at the prevailing rates. For these
the government buying them at cost
paid J17.800 and $2,000 for distribution and salaries for the stall ot the
new branch of tho education department.
Public schools, and even the pn -
vino abnormal school, shared in tl.e
offer ot the government. Over 700
public school requisitions for these
supplies were received by tho department during tlie six months covered
by tbe report and ending with December. Union .lacks, costing $1,788,
were also supplied by lho government
to the various schools.

nf the compliment paid by our

trying to engineer opposition to the

other' reason than that tbey are
apparently imbued with a spirit to
bog every position in parliament

Victoria, Jan. 26.—With reeoiu-
tions ol confidence in Hon. K I.. Hor-
den and Premier Mc Bride and his colleagues, the great Conservative convention concluded its work at noon on
Saturday. New Westminster ran Kam-
lo»|i8 a close nice for the next convention, lirst winning and then failing,
Kamloops heing selected upon a resubmitted vote hy (10 to M.
A resolution recommending the
urging that a candidate he placed in
Coniox-Atlii) to oppose the Hun. W
Templeman, ii possible to-make the
necessary arrangements, was strongly
supported hy a few .of tbe delegates
But the majority accepted the Comox-
Atlin inemhers' view of the conven
tion, who, figuring on the great cost
of a midwinter campaigu, reported to
the cotiveution  against  the proposal
The convention was unanimous
upon the following resolution, which
was eloqueutly supported: "That the
members of tbis convention again put
themselves on record as advocating
that Canada shall he preserved as a
white man's country, aud that it heartily approves of the course which has
been consistently followed by the local
government in respect to Asiatic immigration, and as heartily condemn."
the policy of the Dominion Government in Ihis connection."
In another resolution the convention again strongly reiterated its condemnation of the practice of the Dominion ttovernment in delaying the
election in three constituencies in
British|Columbia. The final resolutions expressed tbe belief that the
preference with Great Britain in tariff
matters should be extended so as to
further promote the unity of the empire.
Over 25Udelegates were present from
all parts of the province
Tlie following ollicers were elected :
Hon. H. T.. Borden, K C, M. P., and

I iblic generally irom the dangers
incident to the running nl light

I limed that two men on an ongino

i e commission lino now ordorod that
.', '.in  running on main lines a light
