English Expert Makes Report
on Gas Producer Plant-
Satisfactory Running —Better Quality Coal Necessary
Tu tha Mayor nnd Corporatiou
Ravabtoke, ll ('.
,f the t'ily (if
Gentlemen',—lu response to your
request I have made a thorough ex
amitiatinn and test ol the gas engine
and suction producer plant installed
by the Canada Foundry Co., Ltd., of
Toronto, in your power house at
Revelstoke, B, 0 , and herewith offer
you my report on same.
IIK (IAS  ENGINE—"I'llEMIEIl" TYPE
Alter a careful and exhaustive inspection of this engine, I can, with a
full assurance, that the latest practice
in gaB engines is embodied in its con-
et ruction,
I hold uo brief lor the "Premier"
people, as you are quite aware, but I
may slate here that, to my know
ledge, many German and some of the
leading gas engine makers have copied
extensively from the "Premier" design.
It is also an undisputed fact that tbe
' Premier" gas engine holds the record
lor the highest efficiency. This information in itself wou'd prove to yen
the mechanical excellence of tbis type
of ess engine
I lind the quality ol the material
used ill the construct imi ol the engine
and the workmanship on same is
good. The action ol the engine, when
in operation, is very satisfactory.
1 have taken diagrams and readings
with my indicator and pressure recording instruments, and submit ior your
information, a number of diagrams,
which give yuu an accurate estimate
nt the horse power developed by tbe
engine. In' addition to tlie above 1
have com pu tnl a diagram, which represents graphically the amount ot fuel
consumed pir hnrBC power hour. This
will be useful for future reference.
From the indicital diagram you will
-ee that the engine is capable ol developing 1105 8 b. p. under present
canditions This power wouid be exceeded il a belter class of luel were
being used.
INDICATOR DIAGRAMS,
Each diagram is complete with information as to bow the results stated
are obtained, and 1 think will be found
quite explicit:
I. Maximum power, 365.8 p. p.
(taken with a 1 250 spring), maximum
pressure, 425 lbs.: compression pressors, 130 Ibe., in each cylinder.
2 and 3. Light spring cards, taken
with 1-10 spring, prove clearly that
the valve settings and adjustments are
correct. Tbe e etion, compression and
exhaust taking place at the proper
priod ol the stroke, there being no
undue hack pressure nr suction effort.
i. Taken with 1-100 spring, this records tbe compression pressure, which
is I:m lbs
5. Taken at 6 p. m., 1-250 spring,
mean pressure, 92 lbs. each cylinder.
Total power 10(5 h. p.
6. 7 p. m., 1-250 Bpring, meau pressure, 105 2 lbs. each cylinder. Total
power, 210 h. p.
7. 8 p. m., 1-250 spring, mean pressure, 103 lbs. each cylinder- Total
power, 222 b, p.
8. 9 p. m., 1-250 Bpring, mean pressure, 100 lbs. each cylinder. Total
power, 220 b. p.
9. 10 p. ni., 1-250 spring, mean preB-
suie, 95 lbs. eacli cylinder. Total
power, 188 h. p.
10. 11 p. m., 1 250 speing, mean
pressure, 94 iba. each cylinder. Tota
power, 160 h. p.
II. 12 p. m., 1-250 spring, mean
pressure, 94.5 lbs. each cylinder. Total
power, 135 indicated h. p.
Tbe  figures computed from the test
sheet are as follows:
Total weight of fuel, 025 lbs.
Total indicated h. p , hours, 1,124.5.
Mean indicated b. p., 187.3.
Coal per indicated b. p., 0.70 lbs.
Duration of test, six hours.
RE   ERECTION OK (IAS  ENGINE.
This has been carried out in a skillful manner, and is quite iu order.
In the erection of tbe engine, most
ol the parts would require to be reassembled. I'pon examination I find
that tbis work has been accomplished
accurately.
Tbe concrete foundation upon which
tlie engine iB erected, moves slightly
when the plant is in operation; this
movement is not likely to cause
trouble unless it increased considerably. It will be poBBible to reinlorce
the present foundation it necessary.
KE  SUCTION  GAS  I'ROPVCEIt   PLANT 2
I thoroughly examined this plant in
detail. Tbe fire brick lining ol generator is in good condition and not
damaged in any part. It is most important tbat this should be so, as
upon tbe good condition of tbe lining
depends the utility ol tbe plant. The
coke scrubber, sawdust purifier and
lhe dryer bave been erected and connected together in a coirect manner.
Tbe general state ol tbe plant is good
and in proper order.
j^Tliere appears to be some difficulty
in getting the gas to tbe engine free
from tar. Tbe reason (or this being
that tbe luel at present in use is practically a semi anthracite and is also
partially bituminous and contains a
Urge percentage of shale. Tbe bituminous constituent iB directly the cause
of tar production and tbe shale, with
other impurities, develop a considerable quantity ol clinker and ash in
the generator and thus hinders the
proper working ol the producer To
eliminate tbe troublo caused by the
tar, which I lind is the only impediment to tbs perfect operation ol tbe
entire   plant,   1    advise   the  use of ti
better quality ol anthracite, this to In
i mixed with coke in the following manner: Anthracite 1 8 and coke 2 8,
From this mixture there will be less
waste in clinker and ash, and a freedom Irom tar in any serious quantity;
also a greater quantity ol gas will be
generated per puund of fuel.
If ymi wish fur any further Information ou this matter 1 shall be pleased
tu meet yuu ami explain anything
upon which jou may noi he quite
clear
Yours faithfully,
J. Emsi.ie Oivkn,
Re elemination of tar, 1 would advise that the dryer be filled with half-
inch pieces of dry, clean coke in place
of wood "bippings, which are at present in use.

A. S. Goodeve Pushes Claims
for A. & K. Railroad
Ottawa, March 20.—In the railway
committee today A. 8. Goodeve, member Ior Kootenay, made a determined
effort to secure an amendment to the
bill respecting the Kootenay it Arrowhead railway company, providing tbat
the company must construct 15 per
cent of tbe remaining mileage within
the next two years and complete the
line within live years. The object of
the bill as frnm id by the promutors,
is lo secure an extension ol time for
the construction for five years. To
this Mr. Goodeve did not object but he
made a strong plea for adoption of
the oompnlsory clause, which he proposed. He quoted from British Columbia newspapers paragraphs to the
effect that work bad been stopped ou
the Kuotenay Central railway as bo in
as an extension of time waB secured
In order tu rush construction on tbe
Kooteuay-Arrowhead line. If Hub was
true there wuuld in consequence be
no hardship imposed on the company
iu putting tbe proposed clause in the
hill. As the line is only 40 miles iu
length, it would mean that tbe c ,m
pany would unly be called upon to
construct six miles in the next twu
years.
Mr. Goodeve pointed out that this
road when completed would provide an
improved connection between the main
line of the C. P. It. and the Crow's
Nest system and tap a large district.
Its early const ruction was important
uot only to British Columbia bin to
the prairie provinces because uf the
improved means ol communication it
would provide. Mr. Goodeve pleaded
with the members ul the committee to
accept hie amendment.
Hon. H. P. Graham declared himself
against tbe proposal: i'he committee
in a past period had declared against
the principle of inserting such compulsory clauses and should be consistent. He suggested that in future the
committee Bhould be more careful in
tbe granting of extensions uf time tor
construction.
After discussion theUoodeveamendment was rejected by 26 to 24.
Mr. Goodeve then moved that the
company be compelled to spend 15
per cent ol the estimated cost within
two years, but this was rejected on
division by 32 to 27 and tbe bill was
reported in iis original form.

-Negotiations
Winnipeg, March 2(i
for a new working agreement between
the Canadian Pacific railway and its
mechanical employees were opened
this morning, when an important
conference between representatives of
the company and of the men, was held
in the ollice of Grant Hall, assistant
superintendent ol motive power. The
conference adjourned this afternoon
as Mr. Hall bud to leive lor the ea.-l
on account ol a sudden bereavement.
The men's delegates represent machinists, boilermakers and helpers,
blacksmiths and helpers, carmen, lit-
*ters, coachbuilders and storemen.
Among the principal matters complained of is the pension question, tbe
men wanting the old workers reinstated to the positions tbey filled before
the strike ol last summer.
A sore point with tlie men and une
that might lead to trouble, is the question ol the union shop. At present 0.
P R. shops are what men term "wide
open," the union nut being recognized
as tbey cunsider it sh uid be Tbe
cmipiny is likely, however, to strenuously oppose the agitation to have a
strictly union shop The question of
working time is   also to be dealt with.
The conference is being conducted
witli reference tn the wes.ern lines ul
Mie C.PR only, and alKic'.s about six
thousand men, the territurj covered
being from Fort William tu Vancouver. It is confidently stat.d t at an
—- , amicable   arrangement   will be   made

Lake Timber Limits.
A case of some local interest took
place on Thursday at the court house
before R. Gordon, gold commissioner,
being a dispute as to the valioity ol
title of certain timber licenses near
the Arrow LakeB, between the Big
Bend Lumber Co. and Bert Blytbe,
representing a syndicate composed of
W. J. Lightburne of Arrowhead, D.
McCarty of this city, and others. J.
A. Macdonald ol Rossland appeared
for the latter parties and .1. 1). Swan-
son of Kamloops for the big Bend
Lumber Co. Through a misunderstanding between parties, G. S. McCarter and C. E, Gillsn, who were to
bave appeared in the case, took no
part, thereby necessitating outside
counsel. Both parties claimed that
they staked the limits on Feb. 18,
1907, although it appears that the
milling company were on the ground
first previous to that year and held
the limits by changing the date on the
slakes Irom year to year. Bert Blytbe
claimed that he staked the limits on
the day mentioned and paid the money
over at once to the govcrninent.wliore-
as it appears that the Big Bend com
pany omitted to do this. A number
of witnesses were called and tlie case
lasted all day and hall the igbt, Mr.
Gordon reserving his decision lor a

DAYLIGHT SAVING   BILL.
Mr. E. N. Lewis is pressing the
government at Ottawa to make his
'Daylight Saving" bill a government measure. It would be a good
thing for Canada :is a whole if this
bill is passed and becomes law.
While we do not favor the scheme
locally uf putting all clocks an hour
ahead in order to get more daylight
unless the change of time is made
by the C. P. R. as well, yet at the
same time we would welcome the
law. should it be passed, compelling
every clock in Canada to be put on
an hour. Nelson has been inflicted
with two times recently; aud between cily time and C. P. il. time
there was almost continuous contusion. We tlu nul want anything
like that, and it is signiticant to
note that the people of Neleon recently voted the thing out. A general order pulling all clocks alike
one or more hours ahead would be
a welcome move, especially i nthe
summer months.

Moral Reform at Phoenix
The Phoenix police and license
commissioners have given the chief
uf police a list, of orders that would
be well for 11113- probable offenders
in the cily to take due notice, says
the Pioneer. For the benelit of
such we present them herewith;
1. Strictly enforce curfew bylaw.
2. Obstructing sidewalks antl
lualing on sireet corners must not
be tolerated,
3. Any person using profane or
boisterous language on the street*-
or in any public place must be
arrested.
4. Make an extra effort to locate
persons carrying concealed weapons and have them prosecuted.
CANADA AND THE NAVY.
The Vancouver Board of Trade
iias considered the question of a
Canadian contribution to the lm
periai navy important enough to
warrant the calling of a special
meetii..- to pass a resolution on the
■ on.    It is to  be hoped  that All
Glorious Kootenays
Judging from the present indications, this year promises to surpass
all previous ones in the settlement
of this section of the Kootenay
country. During the past week 15
families of settlers from the eastern
states and provinces have arrived
bere bound fur points tributary to
Nakusp. Everyone seems to be
well pleased with tlie unsurpassed
climate for which the Kootenays
are noted and the future possibilities of fruit growing in this Bection.
The Curse of Civilization
We are iu receipt uf  a letter from a j
commercial   man   in   the   far nurth.
am
the west, addressed the Canadian
Club yesterday on questions nf the
relation between Canada and the
mother country.
There was something inure in it
all than any question cf trade or
tariffs, or any question of dollars
and cents, and this sentiment
evoked applause.
Mr. Martin placed Canada at the
tup uf the world, but did nut forget also to lind some faults. Rightly or wrongly, Canadians believed
thai their laws and institutions
were better than those of the
American people. He would cast
nu slur on them. Next to the British (Umpire, they were the great exemplary of civic and religious
liberty.
But the coin mon people of the
United Slates had backed up Theo-
dorelloosevell in his war against
graft and the trusts. There had
been no man like that in Canada,
and Mr. Martin feared if there had
been Canadians would not have
backed him up as the people of the
United States did Roosevelt.
Canadians had the advantage of
being part of the greatest nation in
the world and tbey did not pay a
dollar directly or indirectly, while
they had absolute protection from
war. What, then, were these men
going to do? He was ashamed of
hem. Would they increase the
cost of living to the unfortunate
millions of England, the submerged
tenth, by 11 tax on wheat? He did
not know a farmer in the Northwest who would accept live cents tit
such a cost.    (Applause.)
Canadians were protected in
their lives anil property by the
enormous expenditure of Britain
on army and navy. They should
not rest under that, but he was
opposed to any closer relation between Canada and the mother
country.
"I say we don't want to have
any part or lot with the affairs of
the old country because we could
not control them. We would be
running into trouble at once if we
gave up any control of our own
affairs.. But we ought to be proud
enough to say we would, through
parliament, contribute each year a
sum commensurate with our population to the support of the Imperial army and navy."

Nakusp, March 26.— At the regular monthly meeting of the Slocan

Thursday evening.it was decided
tu place the marketing of this
year'.- crop uf berries in the hands
uf the Nakusp Produce company, a
company recently organized liy the

considerable confusion was experienced, and in consequence many

Briefly, for the information of the
writer ol the article, and auv who may
perchance have been mit-led by it, allow us to point out that that tjouie
thirty days have elapsed since the contract was let, and the contractors have
eleven months lelt in which to complete their work.
As b ion as a contract of this nature
is let, it is necessary to get bids upon
piliug aud structural material, and as
all such material is cut specially, estimates are dillicult to obtain withont
loss of time, and tu t-pcak cl getting
spans framed out in the yard, when, as
a matter of fact, there has not been
lime to get the material cut by the
mills, is indeed ludicrous. However,

FIRST CLASS EXHIBIT
B.C. Mineral Display at Seattle
-Revelstoke Will Help.
11. L. Br. ml eut 1.1 Ihe geological
survey branch ul ihe Do niniun De-
p .ilii,cut uf .Mines, Bim mis tent uut
Irom Ottawa to arrange ftr ihe British
Columbia mineral exhibit for the
Alaska-YukoD-l'acilic exposition at
Seattle, arrived in RevelBtoke on Wednesday evening Irom Nelson and remained over Thursday ompleting
arrangements for the local display.
In the course of an interview Mr.
Broadbent Baid tbat everywhere be
bad been most cordially received and
had been givea every assistance in his
wurk. Mining men and others appeared to realize the benefit of having
a good exhibit at Seattle and are prepared tu du their share toward this
end. The result iB tbat there is every
prospect ot a first clasB exhibit of
British Columbia ore at the Seattle
fair.
One of tbe features of tbe exhibit
will be a display illustrative ol mineral technology. This will comprise ore
as it comes from tbe mines, and as it
appears alter each of the various processes through which it passes until
it comes out tbe linisbed product.
For this display samples are to be
supplied (rom the mines and smelters
of the Consolidated Mining and Smelt-
iDg company, at Trail, the Granby
company at Grand Forks, and the B.
C. company at Greenwood. One ol
tbe features of the display (rom the
Trail smelter will be a pyramid consisting of about $12,000 worth of silver
bars, such as are turned out there.
After the exposition thiB Bilver will be
shipped to tbe Canadian mint at
Ottawa, while the rest of the display
provided by the companies mentioned,
goes to the new national museum at
the same place, as tbe first instalment
ol a permanent exhibit there illustrative of mineral technology. All the
ore and other samples being collected
fur the expositiuu will also be taken
there.
Mr. Broadbeut has visited Trail,
Kosslaiid, Phoenix, (irand Forks,
Greeuwood and points in the Similka-
meen and Osoyoos districts. At Trail
be met W. H. Aldridge, general manager, and Jules Labartbe, manager of
tbe Consolidated Mining and Smelting
Company, with whom he arranged to
look after tbe exhibit from tbere,
while at Rossland be arranged with
Mr. Culdrey ol the Le Roi No. 2 and
Mr. Purcell ol tbe Centre Star to look
after the exhibit from tbat section
A. W. B. Hodges kindly undertook to
look after the exhibit of tbe Granby
mines and mselter, and Messrs. Warren and Keller did the same in regard
to the B.C. Copper mines and smelter.
At Hedley Mr. Broadbent arranged
for samples Irom tbe Nickel Plate and
the Golden /one mines aod tbe King
Bton group. During his trip to the
west he also secured collections from
the Princeton and the Oeoyocs district. The Nelson and Slocan exhibits are in the hands ol the Boards of
Trade.
From here Mr. Broadbent goes to
Kamloops, the mainland coast and
Vancouver Island. All exhibits must
be in place by May 15, but they ahould
be ready as long as possible before
that date.
All tbe exhibits will go forward
addressed to tbe Canadian display at
tbe exposition and for this purpose a
special label has been prepared consisting of a large red ensign with the
maple leaf and beaver on tbe ground.
Sunounding tbe llag is the address.
Tbe label is so striking tbat tbere
should not be any danger of any of
tbe exhibits marked with it going
astray.
The Revelstoke exhibit is in tbe
handB of the Board of Trade, the Gold
Commissioner and others who have
consented lo collect the specimens.
Owing to tbe depth ol boow around
tbe pruperties ol this district large
samples will be unobtainable, and Mr,
Broadbeut has allowed a lew mure
weeka time iu which to get the collection together.
W. W. B. Mclnnes for Judge.
Ottawa, March 26.—It is understood that tbe appointment ol Mr. W.
W. B. Mclnnes to the vacant county
court judgeship of Vanoouver will be
made within a abort time. He will
take the place on the bench ol tbe late
Judge Cane.
It is regarded as probable that an
increase in the salary lor the position
will be announced at the same time
as tbe appointment of Mr. Mclnnes is
made.

SOUTH POLE EXPEDITION
British Explorer Gets Wnhin 111
Miles of the South Pole
I.ONDON, .March 2li — lie polar re-
g. ns ate gradually y el.ling up tlieil
secrets to human perseverance and
di termination, and En-tat 11. Shackli-
inn, of the British navy, who left his
permanent quarters last autumn lor a
dash to the pule, has succeeded, and
an arduous sledge journey ol 176
miles, which occupied 126 days, in
reaching within 111 miles of the south
pole, or 354 miles nearer than that
attained by the Discovery expedition,
of which be was an officer. As the
expedition to the south was taken
rather for tbe purpose of geographical
survey than with tbe idea of reaching
the pole itself, it may be said to have
succeeded beyond the most sanguine
expectations.
Profiting by former experiences in
tbe Antartic regions when all the
dogs succumbed to the strain and
rigors of the climate, Lieut, Shackle-
ton made some departures from the
usual preparations for a journey across
the snow, and be look with him a
motor car, which it iB believed he converted into a Bled, and he substituted
ponies for dogs, and ligbt woolen clothing (or heavy furs.
The main expedition of which Lieut.
Shackleton waB in command, reached
latitude 811.21, longtitude 162 east,
while a Becond party pushed forward
to she southern magnetic pole, reaching latitude 72.23, longitude 154 east.
Tbe British llag was left flying at both
points The narrative ol Lieutenant
Shackleton's achievement shows that
the expedition endured the greatest
trials and privations.

G.S., president of the Alpine Club ol

delivered by a master of the subject,
and on the occasion of Mr. Wheeler's
visit to the city next inuiith. The
Edison Parlor Tneatre, where the lecture is to be given, will, no doubt, be
crowded. Tbis lecture will be given
under tbe auspices ol tbe local Mountaineering Club, which, judging from
present indications, will Boon be a
very strong organization, and one
which all wbo are interested iu mountains are strongly advised to join.
Arrangements are already in band for
the building ol a club house in the
park on Mount Kevelstoke, and many
a happy vening will be spent by the

BIG GAME HUNTERS COMING
Celebrities Will Visit Big Bend
and Kootenay
Many big game hunters are signifying tbeir intentions of coming out to
British Columbia this year to burn
powder, and, no doubt, a large number of visitors to the Alaska-Vukor-
Pacific Exposition will be diverted to
this province by its splendid reputation and attractiveness as a bappy
hunting ground.
Charles A Dana, ono of tbe stste
prosecutors in tbe |Thaw trial, will
hunt in tbe Cassiar district.
Baron Von Fleinmiiig, a famous
German huntsmen, and Herr Obcr-
lander, the Austrian, will hunt cariboo
in the Big Bend and sheep in the
Kootenays,
Lord Vivian will also hunt in tbe
Kootenays and the Big Bend districts.
Lord Hindlip will deer stalk in tbe
Selkirks.
There are, of course, a large number of less known hunters who have
announced their intentions of coming
out here to shoot.
In many cases Revelstoko will be
made a headquarters Ior a number of
big bunting expeditions.

Still worship at the call, but now
Tis draped in hose ol any hue.
