A Successful Exhibition and Well
Contested Sports
The second annual Fall Fair
under the auspices of the Kevelstoke
Agricultural Society, was held at the
Society's Grounds, in the West end,
on Thursday and Friday. The Fair
itself was a great success both in point
of exhibits and attendance, lhe receipts on the first day alone being
within $18 ol tbe total amount taken
ou tbe two days of last show. The
exhibit of fruit was not so large, but
tbe fact that it was all locally grown,
marked a deoided score for tbe pio-
greeB of RevelBtoke a", a fruit growing
diitrict, ind astonished outsiders who
visited the Fair. The opening duy
wm hot and dusty, but thanks to a
refreshing Bhower of rain on Thursday
night, Friday opened cool snd pleasant for visitors and sightseerB, so that
on the whole the weather was excellent (or the purpose.
We publish   herewith  the report ol
the Gun Olub shoot and results of the
two days' racing.    A full report of the
Fair itself will appear next issue:

Successful Annual Event in Connection With the Fair
The annual Gun Club Shoot in con-
nentiiin with the Fair celebration, and
under tbe auspices of tbe local club,
took place on tbe Gun Club grounds,
McKenzie Avenue, on Wednesday.
Tbe professionals visiting tbe meet
were:—H W. Mayuard, of Vancouver,
representing tbe Dominion Cartridge
Co.; E. C. White, of Ottawa, repre
uenting Dupont Powder Company;
Garrison, of Olympia, Wash., representing lhe CMC. and Remington
Companies. Mr. Garrison cashiered
tbe shoot and bandied it splendidly.
A. Evans, ol Armstrong, won the
beautiful medal given by the McLen-
nan-McFeely Company, Ltd , ul Vancouver, for the high amateur aggregate.
Mr. Garrison won the Revelstoke
Club's gold medal for the highest pro
fessional aggregate. The day was not
favorable for tbe best shooting, a brisk
breeze blowing and tbe atmosphere
being hazy with smoke. The result
was the scores were low.
In tbe team shoot Armstrong tied
with Revelstoke for the Revelstoke
Cup and in the shoot-off Armstrong
won by seven birds. Tbe visitors are
to be congratulated on tbeir achievement, and hold the cup for tbe year,
the trophy being a very handsome one.
In the professionals Garrison won
the high score with 144, Maynard
being second with 142 and White
third with 136. The lollowing were

Tbe committee in charge ol lhe

well. Mr. Gairiaon, who has attended
every shoot in Canada and the western
states, declared tbe meeting was cue
of the best he has ever attended. Next
year the RevelBtoke Club expect tbe
shoot to be the largest and best attended ol any Gun Club Shoot in the
west and are laying themselves out tor
the realisation of that ambition. The
local club have decided to join the
Interstate Shooting Association which
will improve their standing and prestige and help the objects tbey have in

A meeting ol members of the Revelstoke Poultry snd Live Stock Association was beld at the City Hall
Thursday evening to meet Mr. Waby,
judge of the poultry exhibits at the
Fair. J. J. Devine presided. The
questions of prizes and a winter poultry show were discussed and it was
understood that the beginning of
December would be the most suitable
time for such a show.
The American Plymouth Rock Club
sdvised terms on which they would

Mr. Waby testified to tbe great
value of the Barrfd Rock as a layer.

Police Make Smart Capture and
Culprit Gets Four Months
As the result of tlie prompt work of
Chief of Police Parry, Ueorge Hicks,
one ol the men concerned in the robbery ol $200 from the lumber-jack, J.
Laundrey, who has been working for
the AdaniB River Lumber Company,
was captured at Vernon. He was this
morning brought belore Police Magistrate Foster and sentenced to four
months' Imprisonment in Kamloops
Accused is a young man of 18, who
hails from Winnipeg, carries a shooting gallery and lias been following the
fairs. Laundry gave evidence ol two
joining him on the river bank, when
one of them knocked bim on the back
ol the head, made him dizzy, and when
ho recovered he (ound his money gone.
He positively recognised accused as
oue. Chief Parry produced bills lound
on accused corresponding with tbe
money Laundry received from the
Imperial Bank, and stilted part uf
it was found in accused's stocking.
Accused said it was his companion
Creiner wbo struck Laundry and took
the money He admitted leaving
suddenly without even taking hiB
grips or paying his hotel bill.
The Magistrate, in sentencing accused, warned him against the life be
was starting out to lead.
John Stover, who had also beeu
arrested on suspicion of being tbe
other inun cuueerned. was discharged
on application of Chief Parry, who
said he was now satisfied Stover took
jo part in the robbery.
The money found on both men was
ordered to be restored to Laundry.
Present "Confusion" at Opera
Tlie opera house was crowded last
night on tbe occasion of tbe p-esenta
tion of tlie farcical conn dy "Confusion" by tbe Revelstoke Dramatic Cluh.
We have never seen a better all-round
amateur performance, the different
parts being well sustained by those to
whom they were entrusted, while the
audience were kept in roars ol laughter Irom start to finish with an interest tbat never lagged.
The curtsin opened on a beautifully
furnished Btage effect. Mrs. Lawrence
took the comical part ol the old maid,
Miss Lucretia Tickleby, which she
acted to perfection, bringing out tbe
lull humor ol the situations of the
piece with striking effect. Mrs. D. M.
Rae was excellent as the waiting maid
Maria, bent on keeping tbe secrets of
wife and mother, the knowledge of
which at Jersey Lodge would, it was
feared, endanger the position of herself and husband in a service already
presenting difficulties, The representation of Rose Mumbleford, the young
hride already having trouble witli her
husband, could not hnve been curried
through its dillicult features mure
effectively and nicely than in the
hands ol Miss Buck, whose acting well
merited the appreciation shown by
tbe audience. The part ol Violet, lhe
girl in love, was web played by MisB
Ella Watson.
Mr. W. M. Lawrence made the
character ol Christopher Blizzard a
great favorite and proved himself at
home in the part of fatherly counsellor on one band and in winning the
heart and band of a rich old maid on
the other. Mortimer Mumbleford, the
disgruntled young husband and victim
of other people's mistakes was an excellent piece ol acting on the part ol
Mr. W. J. W. Brown. Mr 1). M. Rae
personated James, the family butler,
and intimidated husband and lather,
and did H well. To Mr. C. W.Gordon
was allotted the part ol Rupert Sun-
berry, the simple lover ol Violet, with
an idea that all the troubles ol life
were due to tbe liver, and he sustained
the part well. Mr. W. A. Sturdy
made an excellent Dr. Jones, and Mr.
R. Ackmun appeared effectively as
Michael Muzzle the detective. The
stage management was creditable to
Mr. R R. Ooptland who handled that
end ol the performance; wbile Miss
Frances Lawson presided acceptably
at tbe piano.    A dance followed.
Peary Denies Cook's Wonderful
Copenhagen, Sept.   8.—Daugaard
Jensen, inspector of Danish Norlli
Greenland, told a representative ol the
Associated Press to-day he was perfectly convinced ol the truth of Dr.
Cook's narrative. Jensen lirst heard
that Dr. Cook bad attained the Polo
from Eskimos. He then met Dr.
Cook, who confirmed the story.
NEW Vork, Sept. 8.—The text ol
Commander Peary's message to his

Many Difficulties Attending Development.
.I.F. Moodie, manager of the Big
Bend Mien Company, Limited, telle a
hair .raising story ot tlie difficulties at-
tendiug dfvcl.ipmi.nl work in the
northern part ol the Big Bend. Owing to the bad state of the Government trail at Mica Creek he has al
ready bad three horses killed in transporting bis supplies, and con-plains ot
the unnecessary delay of the Government iu starting construction ol the
trail via Big Mouth Creek to tbe mica
fields. The present trail, even with
the limited traffic so far, is in an impassable condition, and borses have to
lie pulled out ol the mud daily.
Mr. Moodie is well pleased with the
appearance of the ground he is work
iug. He is getting two classes ol
mica, pure white and green, nnd samples have stood the highest teet recorded for mica, nainly 115,000 volts.
He expects Sir Heury M. 1'ellali
and other capitalists to visit the Com
pany's properties uext week.
A Successful Ascent of Mount

Rev. G. B. Kinney. He made the

It is a great achievement for a member of the Alpine Club of Canada. Mr

history of the power plant is here.
and should be dealt with promptly
and in a businesslike way, tbe
opportunity being taken advantage
of to place the plant in a position
of absolute strength and reliability
of service. When it is considered
that since the city purchased tbis
power plant, it has earned little
short of 20 per cent, on its capital
value, Ihere is no city in Canada
that can show a wiser or better
investment. That, the time lias
come when the dam must be replaced is not much a matter for
astonishment, though it has been
hastened by the heavy Hoods of
last spring. We advise our readers
who take an interest in this problem
to read carefully the report of
Smith, K'eiiry and Chace which
appears in another pari of tbis
issue, and when the public meeting is called to ask the cooperation
of the citizens with the Mayor and
Council in dealing with it, there
are no doubt many who could offer
suggestions winch would materially
aid tlie Council in the responsible
work ahead of them. If the work
is lo be done—and it must lie done
unless the city is to face the entire
loss of the power plant and the
inconvenience resulting therefrom
as well as the loss of revenue—the
Council should he in n position to
have the contract let and the work
started just as soon as low water
stage is reached and before severe
wintet weather sets in.

lhe Vancouver land boom, which
has resinned the magnitude of
three years ago, is a menace to the
bona tide development of British
Columbia and if continued will
tend to bring ahout a recurrence of
financial d pression. .Money sunk
in land speculation does nothing
to increase production and give
employment lo labor. The warning uttered by Mr. Laird, General
Manager of the Hank of Commerce,
in another column, applies more
forcibly to city and suburban land
speculation than lo increase in farm
land holdings. If it is true in the
litter case, how much more bo is it
in the former'.'

An Expert Report by Hydraulic
Engineers-Dam in Danger
and Extensive Improvements
The lollowing is the report on the
City power plant and dam by Messrs.
Smith, Kerry and Chase, hydraulic
engineers, of Toronto;—
The Mayor and City Coincii., Bevelstoke, B. C.
Gentlemen:—Acting under your
instructions we hnve made an examination ol your hydro-electric plant on
the lllecillewaet river and beg to hand
you the following report:—
We lind that the spring freBhets
have washed out about loo feet of the
Hume, and part of the cribwork
foundations below the gatehouse and
dam; and lhat the foundations of the
latter are being considerably undermined and weakened, to au extent to
make it unsafe under Hood or high
water conditions. We Iiud also that
you are operating with a temporary
Hume, utilizing only a part of the
available heud and water as a temporary condition pending the adoption
of a policy in regard to the measures
to be undertaken to provide nerma-
□eut headworke, and amel. ate the
c iiiditions which obtain at low water
in the winter months, as a result of
which you were forced to install an
auxiliary gas eogine about two years
We estimate the low water How of
the river tu be about 250 cubic leet per
second of time, and at Hood, such a*
occurred ibis year, about 8,000 cu ic
leet. The conditions at low winter
water, are, we understand to be, as
would be expected, that the water is
impregnated with lloat and Blush ice
to an extent to necessitate the slur
ting down of the present plant at
different times Moreover this ice
bas been known tu block the channel
of the river fora considerable distance
down the stream below the power
house, and back water up iuto the tail
race and Hood it.
Our recommendations to you are
oa»ed on the necessity of amending
these conditions as far as possible, And
to provide you with a permanent plant
that will allow of extensions and alterations as outlitied, as the demand lor
power for all purposes does, as it must,
increase. The final development will
in effect give you about 1200 k. w., as
against 400 now Installed, nl direct
connected units with three phase
current. It will allow of th - necessary flexibility and provide a proper
margin lor safety, will utilize the
present power house and water wheel,
and retain in its present position the
auxi iary g«B producer plant now
installed. We bave upon analysis of
existing conditions decided to recommend this development in three stages
as "inlined, and attach a ■ sketch
showing tlie liual result.
The lirst stage includes tlie construction of a permanent Monolith
concrete dam, with intake for two
pipes and one or two blowolfs, situate
at a point about 140 leet below tbe
present dam. The present Hume
bench will be utilized to carry the
water Irom this dam to the power
house, snd the present dam with a
temporary Hume will be used to un-
w-iter the site ol tbe new dam during
construction. This Hume will be used
temporarily to provide additional
water for the plant at once. Tbe
present Hume will be replaced by a
six foot wood stave pipe, using trepresent stave pipe for part ol the distance at Us upstream end.
The crest ol the dar.i we propose to
raise to an elevation ol 12 leet above
that ol the present dam, and provide
piers and Stop logs fur an additional
head ol 10 leet iu low water, and at all
stages of water giving you a bead ol
80 feet.
The itl'ect nl tbe adoptiou of this
dam would be fivefold, It would provide a settling basin witli an area ol
alsjtn ten acres, in which the float ice
would cume to the surlace, would
provide a meaus Ior Hushing out the
sediment tbat must Accumulate in
this stream at thiB point, and assist in
getting rid of the slush ice; would in
low water and ice conditions give the
necessary additional power and much
better operating conditions; would
lessen tbe cost ol the conduit pipes to
the power house and provide storage
loi a peak load.
It is apparent tbat the present turbine under the head available from
the prt'sen' dam cannot meet with a
proper margin lor peak loads, the (ull
demand lor power and lights during
the coming winter. At present il is
only able to supply this during the
daytime, making it necessary to run
the gas engine at night. This entails
considerable cx|k.iibc.
In meet this condition and lo provide lur the increased head, we  there.

fore recommend for the lirst develop
ment the installation ol a new and
Bingle-runner wat ir wheel of 700
b p. capacity, with valve, designed to
run the present generators installed
at the new head. This will meau the
setting aside of the present water
wheel until the Becond development
takes place. The lirst sbould be gone
on with without delay, the second, it
will, we judge, be necessary to provide
for within the coming year.
The secontl stage includes the installation of additional machinery,
and changing from the single phase
to three phase system. It involves
the reconstruction of tlie present turbine with larger shaft, and addition ol
a valve,—the putchai-e of a 000 k.w.
generator, three-phase, with exciter,
aud added switchboard equipment,
and the necessary foundations, with
some wiring tu change from single
phase to three-phasecurrent. This unit
is installed directly connected throughout on the north side of the present
casing, and small alteration in the
buildiug only will be necessary to provide requisite space.
The effect of this new installation
will be to use lhe six [out pipe to its
full capacity with both wheels running, provide the necessary means lor
shotting down one while the other is
being repaired, and in effect to provide
altogetht r a tolal capacity of 1000
k. w., inclusive ol tbe present generators installed. This equipment will
give the city a good margin as the
demand increases for probably live
years, depending on development of
tbe dirtrict and increased industrial
UBis lor pow.T.
The third aud liual development
involves the addition ot a second six
foot stave pipe, from dam to power
house, tlie installation ol a third turbine with a capaoily of Ihu) h.p,, and
a 600 k. w. generator, same as iu No
2, connecting this unit hy two valves
with the new pipe, and tbo lirst unit
with the new pipe by valve. The
present single phase units could then
be sold, and probably the present
three phase machines, and a new 400
k. w. generator installed on the present jack shaft in tbeir place, connected up with the producer engine ns
at present. The jack shaft would r
quire to be strengthened. This will,
as mentioned, leave the plant direct
connected and three phase throughout,
ol a capacity of lliOO k w , without
counting the 250 h.p gas engine still
retained as auxiliary. Kach ol the
pipe lines will leed two of the ma
cbineB and the valve arrangement
permits ot this.
We conclude with preliminary
cstiiiiatus lor eacii stage in the development based on present prices lor
labor and materials, including ma
cbinery and cement. As soon as a
decision is   rcachi:'1   proper   plans and
estimate! ihould be prepared lor the
full development so that each stage
maybe camed mil intelligently in tl
aconomiciilly. The quantity ol water
on which we base our report should be
checked hy daily and weekly guagings
continuously timing the approaching
low water period and until the full
development is completed to permit
nl   whatever  modifications  may be
necesBary. We have not consider! tl
the renewal ol the transmission liiu1
and changing ot the distribution -iys
tern. Tlie former will require new
poles in a shun time, and will an soon
as plan Nu. 2 ia adopted rrquire a systematic remodelling aud considerable
