REPORT ON
POWER PLANT
Council Hears Report of Engineer on Flume Question-
Laid Over for Public Works
Board
The city council in regular session
last night heard without a blush the
report of J. 1J. Furde to the lire, water
and light committee on the question
ol the present lighting station and the
trouble that is being bad at the
present tune with the power bouse
situation, The people of Kevelstoke
think tiny have bad enough trouble
over their electric lights without having to have any further worry over
them, As far us is possible lhe repnrt
of Mr, Forde explains the entire'situ-
ation bo far as the advisability ol the
city fur the present lighting is concerned and as far as to what must be
the future of the city's actions in regard to the power plant. Mr. Fnide's
letter reads us below, and alter a lung
discussiiiii was referred to the lire,
water m il light committee ;—
OHAS. F. I.inii.m.hik, Ks.j , Mayur,
City ut Revelstoke.
Sin : With reference to the present
cunilitiun of the dam at the City's
power plant un the lllecillewaet river:
The damage to the Hume was al)
caused by the high water running nver
the crib at the north end of the dam
and carrying driftwood and mcks
against the flume. This is a condition which is liable to occur again
during the summer, and 1 would recommend that a timber and rock crib
be built between me gate house and
the solid ruck to prevent such a thing
happening again. The flume should
be repaired in a temporary manner, su
119 tn furnish water to the power house
until such time ub a permanent ilmn
aud lliinie cmi be installed, which will
b.i a necessary undertaking in a ven-
short time, and, as the upper end of
t ie llunie dues not carry inner uuder
pressure, au open box wbicb cuuld be
covered in tbe winter time, wuuld
serve to repair the break and would be
muoh cheaper than a permanent
Structure. If the crib referred to above
is built the temporary Hume would be
sutlicieut now. Tu lie brief, 1 would
uni recommend the expenditure uf
any more money than can be possibly
avoided on the present dam and Hume.
As you ure well aware the dam is not
8tn ng en..ugh to withstand any exira-
ordinary strain, to which it is liable
tu be subjected at any time, particularly since tbe oribwork built a few
years agu to strengthen it, has been
carried out, and I am ol the opinion
ihat had the water nut found relief
by making a channel fur itself around
the gate huuse, there is a large possibility that the dam would have Leen
carried away. In addition to this,
even a superlicial examination of the
Hume shows that its life is abuut spent
aud if tbe dam is continued iu its
present location, the renewal ol the
llunie will have to be undertaken in a
very short time. I would therefore
recommend maintaining the present
dam and Hume only until such time
as there can be installed a permanent
system.
With regard to the form which the
permanent system should take:—The
site which was neglected, between the
present dam and the puwer house is
an ideal dam site, and at that point
there should be built a masonry
structure high enough to give the
necessary pressure to operate your
plant at extreme low water, allowing
lor a'natural increase in the demand
for power and light for a number of
yeara to cume. This, of course, will
be provided with the necessary bead
gate, fluice gate and spillway, and
from the dam the water should be
conveyed to tbe power house in a con-
tinuati'.n nf the present stave Hume,
or, preferably, in a stave Hume with 11
diameter of al least two lest mure than
the present stave llunie. This will
allow a considerable margin for space
taken up by ice forming on the inside
of tin: Hume. However, une reason
why I recommend tbe stave Hume is
because I do not think you will experience nearly as much trouble from
ice in tlie stave Hume as in the present
box llunie.
The question I moving the power
bouee to the proposed new dam site,
ie one which I consider a little premature just nuw, as it will serve ils
purpose fully ne well in its present
location, and, withoul going into
figures, 1 may sny that the cost of
moving the power house antl plant
and   the   necessary additional  eust of
the dam to obtain the required bead
wuuld be much greater than the  coil
uf instil Mat inn and maintenance of
the proposed 10 [uot slave Hume, 1
therefore oannot see the advantage to
be gained by moving tue power house,
in this oonneotion, i would remind
you that it would be advisable to take
stepB to protect the present stave
llume from the weather, us in ita
present neglected stale, it will soon
reach a poinl where it will be beyond
repair,
II it ia considerul advisable to go
into the i|tiestion of the permanent
work recommended ah,ive, ynu should
have your engineer make a detailed
survey of all the ground between the
present dam and thn power house,
with necessary profiles, etc. Hia plans
to clearly indicate the nature of the
ground on both sides ol the river, and
lhe nature of tho foundations likely
to be encountered in river bed to
enable the designer e! the proposed
new plant to estimate lie closely as
posnil le.
1 might, add Unit the auxiliary
plant, while a valuable asset and useful in caee of emergency, should be required to a much lees extent il Ihe
proposed new sceenie is curried into
effect than uuder presiiit conditions,
thus effecting a considerable saving,
huth in fuel and wages.
All of which is respectfully submitted.
Vuurs respectfully,
I. 1'. Fokue.

THE BYLAWS
DEFEATED
People Think Debt of City is Big
Enough-Public Criticism of
School Trustees. Another
By-Law Probable.
Uotb the money by-laws submitted
to the people yesterday went down to
defeat, line was (ur tbe authorization
of the issuance ul debentures fur $10,-
000 fur "school purposes," the meaning
ot that phrase being indicated in tbo
published by-laws wbicli stated that
tlie object was the erection ol new
school buildings and the purohase ul
Uloclc 1.11. Tbe other was (or the expenditure of $9,000 lor the purohase ol
street improving machinery. It ie the
popular impression that the defeat of
the Becond by-law was due to the unpopularity nt the lirst, and lor the
unpopularity of the lirst no one can
be held responsible but tho school
trustees, Muoh indication wiih expressed by those visiting the polls
yesterday aud voting on both the
by laws that lhe trustees had nut
called a public meeting and taken the
people intu their confidence in tbe
matter uf the proposed school expenditure.
It ie too late now toi anyone lo
regret excepting tboeu who have to
regret over the detent ot the bylaw but
it may be of general interest to suite
the tacts as to how the vote went.
Tbe interest as manifested in tlie
voting strength of the city was a surprise lu both the returning ollicers
aud to those who anxiously afterward
inquired the results. While the number uf votes polled by no meaua represents the voting power of the city it
is a fair average vote ou money bylaws
as compared with other cities.
For the school bylaw there were 107
votes eaat favorably with a vute uf 142
against.
The people are not stingy and never
Will be, and they will contribute tu the
lust ceut in the matter uf taxation,
but they ought to be informed as to
huw their money it tu be expended
before tbey will again vute for a money
by-law.
As far as the mad making machinery concerned, there will be nothing
hut general regret expressed at the
fact that the by-law [ailed to pass. It
tbe city ot Kevelstoke lift een years ago
hud taken up the question ot strett
milking intelligently there never
wi mill have been the ever recurring
problems ol street repairs that have to
he diced by the City Council to-day.
To save or not to save seeme tu be tbe
problem be'ore the elector and the
bunch decided to save.
It is a pity, however, that the money
(or the street improving maohinery
was not voted for, as that is one of the
imperative necessities il we are ever to
have the sort ol streets that ebotild
dignity the city.
Under the provincial laws it will
not be possible tn submit another bylaw on the school question within six
months,
Judging from the com ments made
on the streetB, the proper course for
the ratepayers to pursue is to call a
meeting and thresh out the whole
matter as to whether ur not there is
necessary the expenditure uf $-10,0(10
in urder tu provide lor the educational
accommodation of the children who
go to school iu the city. Publicity is
everything.    Ue public.
As to whether there shall bo bought
at the expense of the municipality
machinery ul the kind required to
make streets in tbe city is a question
which must be determined by the
people who have tu decide what sort
of streets we shall have in tho city.
Most of them know thut they aro not
satisfied with what we have now, but
whether to trust tbo council with
what we shall have is a question.
The ratepayer evidently thought sn
by the vute of yesterday-

DAWN OF IMPERIALISM.
The meeting of the imperial press
conference which took place in
London this week would seem to
indicate that there has been a dawn
of what may be termed true imperialism. Nothing more important
to tin.- interests ol empire could be
imagim i than such a meet ng uf

too indulgent, too paternal, to  ask

been too mean to offer it. but a
change is impending. Inspired hy
the pluck of New Zealand, Australia anil other colonies ever in the
van. Canada has agreed to send
delegates to discuss the problems
with the Uritish Government, and
it must he gratifying to the whole
of the British world that the Commonwealth, dominions, colonies,
and dependencies have offered
hearty co-operation. This movement originated wilh the Press,
was supported by the people, and
is now espoused by both political
parties." Such an assembly wilh
the expression of such views—
views from every part of the empire
and from every part, significant of
the dawn of a new imperialism
cannot fail in its early and ultimate results to bring about a new-
era in the solidarity and solidification of the empire.
Tbe city of Cranbrook has already got ready for its Fall fair
and Iihe prize list for the events
of lhe occasion has been issued.
Tlie city of Revelstoke or whoever
is responsible for the management
of the annual fair here seems to be
sleeping as no intimation lias been
made that anybody is getting busy
with the organization work. Whatever maybe said for or against the
holding oi local and naturally
limited annual fairs they can never

them creditable close application
to the work of organization is a
necessity. While the hare was
sleeping the tortoise walked into
the goal and bad tbe horse laugh

Tiirilling   Story   of   Attempted
Rescue of Suicide
Niagara F.ill- neivs items contain
a story uf a tragic suicide nt the
famous resnrt on Juue 7 The despatches say.
A thrilling tragedy occurred here
yesterday, when the young wife of
Airon Cohen, of Buffalo, suddenly
stepped from her husband's side, nnd
without warning, east herself into thi
swirling river between ihe Second and
Third Sister islands within a short
distance of the cataract. Cohen in
stantly plunged into the raging water
and succeeded iu catching hold of his
wife. Then followed a territic strugg'e
against the Btrong current, Final y
the man bumped into a tree stump
that had become lodged In the stream,
and, holding the hotly ol his wife in
one hand, he held on to the stump
with the other aud cried lur help.
Word was  sent tu   the  pulice, and
Policeman .lames  Martin hurried in
the river bank, bringing ropes. Two
or three other men joined the officer.
Several times the rope was thrown
tu Cohen, but always it eluded his
grasp. Alter his strength had lean
exhausted, Coheu succeeded in catch
iug the rope, but was unable tu fasten
it abuut his waist The couple were
noi, more than twenty leet from the
shore, lint so swift ia the current at
this point, that the would-be rescuers
did not dare to attempt to enter the
water to render aid.
Finally, with Cohen holding to the
rope, the men began to pull bim and
his wife ashore. When i.taring the
shure Cohen lost liuld of his wife's
li.nly and it was carried down stream.
It was later res-tied from where it
hail bulged agaiiiBl a ruck. Life was
extinct.
When brought to shore, Cohen win
unable to speak frum exhaustion
After resting lor sume minutes he
uianiiii'd tu gasp mil: "My wile is
dead, l'leaso go and got her body;
she died in my arms."
Cohen says that l.e believes worry
over tbe lact that she was unable
to nurse her infant, caused hia wife's
desire fur death.

are 40,000,000 acres of arid lands susceptible to reclamation by irrigation.
The construction cost of the reclamation wurks is returned to the government for the salejof land, the proceeds
to be again used in furthering irrigation development. Irrigation ia now
making a garden spot and an empire
uf the great American desert, and the
work uf tbe irrigation congress is yet
in its infancy."

OUTLOOK FOR FRUIT
Maxwell Smith Makes  Report
After Inspection
W. Mcxwell Smith, Dominion fruit
inspector, bus just returned from a
tour through the province, says the
Vancouver News. He has made a
caielul inspect iun of all fruit growing
districts except the Okanagan, on
wbicli he is already in receipt of detailed reports. He summed up his
conclusions as (ollows;
The apple erop will be good all
through tbe province. PearB will be
light, plums and prunes promise well,
peaches will be very light owing to
the severe winter, strawberries will
uot Oe quite a half crop, cherries are
in doubt, raspberries and blackberries
promise a full erop.
The Fraser river valley has come
through the winter aa well as any
other district, but the strawberries
will be nu better there than elsewhere.
Development this year promises to
be on a more extended scale than
ever before, and there will be a large
increase iu the fruitgrowing acreage.
Many fruit trees have not yet matured so that tbis year tbe season is
not likely to show much increase in
actual produce over last, especially as
the peach, strawberry and pear crops
have suffered much from the severe
winter. Interest in tbe fruit industry
throughout the province continues to
increase, promising a very large addition to tbe acreage in tbe near
future.
Mr. Smith found in the Boundary,
Kootenay and other interior points a
lew cases of illegal packages which
had been imported and not branded
with the word "short" as required by
the provisions of the Dominion Iruit
regulations. These packages were
not up to standard size aud therefore
would give purchasers Bhort weight.
Such packages have to be branded
with the word "Bhort."

Most Kev. Joseph Thomas Luhamel,

deceased prelate was a prominent
churchman, and it was gcncratly understood that he was soon to bu
created a Cardinal, and devoted his
entire time to the administration of
his See. He took no part in politics,
and seldom appeared at any social
function.
Made No Contracts
Montreal, June 12.—Mr. Arthur
Cuate, one of the tlitectors ul the
shipbuilding firm ul Hawthorn, Leslie
A Coate, ol Newcastlc-on-Tyno, who
is now iuMontreal, gives an emphatic
denial to the story published in some
New York puperB as coming from
Montreal, lhat the Canadian Government hud made contracts with the

The belief that an editor knows
everything is widespread, but one small
buy disoovered the limitations ol the
editorial mind. Here is the anecdote
a» we get it Irom a contemporary:
"Father," asked the small boy of an
editor, "is Jupiter iiihabilated'i"'
"I don't know, my bou," was the
truthful answer.
Presently he was interrupted again.
"Father, are Ihere any sea serpents?"
"I don't know, my sun."
The little fellow was manifestly cast
down, lint presently rallied and again
approached the source ul information
"Father, what dues the north pole
look like?"
But, alas' again the answer: "1
don't know, my son "
At last, ii. desperation, he inquired,
with withering emphasis, "Father,
how did you get tu be an editor."

ALGIERS, June 11—The crew of the
German steamer Ava lias arrived here
following     tlieir   escape    from    tbe
Ava, which was blown to  pieces   by  a
dynamite explosion.    Fire broke out
at   nigbt   on   the   German    steamer j
and  as  dynamite   formed  a   greater j
part of the cargo, tbe crew made haste
to launch the lifeboats and pull away i
from the vessel.   Tbey were none too j
soon, lor within fifteen   minutes after
it had  been abandoned, a terrific explosion   took   place,   which  tore tbe
vessel   tu  pieties, covering the  water
with wreckage.
