SATURDAY,  MARCH   27.   1909.
THE YEAR OF OPPORTUNITY.
The sprnig is with us in all the
glory of its beauty and over the earth
the spirit of new born joy and gladness prevails. This sweet vernal season ushers in the birth of a new era,
a period of great development for
New Westminster, and tbe citizens,
th-ir hearts made glad by the bright
prospect of an auspicious future, can
join with the things of Nature in the
chorus of gladsome joy.
There are present all the circumstances of opportunity and it is up
to every citizen to devote his best efforts to making this a year of real
progress, expansion and development.
Tin- good work can be li"lp<?d forward
by each man, both individually and
in combination with his fellows, and
for the good of all it is his duty lo
take every advantage of the chance
now presented for New Westmnstcr
to make a great leap to the fore.
. There is  not   the  slightest  reason
*
why this, the Royal City, should not
Cvllly justify the real import of the :
���world-known title Apart from its
common significance of sovereign or j
kingly power, this grand old adjective j
royal signifies noble, illustrious, mag-j
cificent. Let the aim of every one ,
therefore be to endow New Westmin-1
titer with the supreme quality of mag-
niflcence and of greatness. .
*We refuse' to believe that there are i
���any "Little Citizens"   in   our   midst;!
that there are any such as  will  approve   the  mean   and   puny  spirit  of I
the   "Small   City"   article   which   our
bilious contemporary   pul   forth   the
oiuer day.    We are convinced rather
lhat   every   man  amongst   us   has  at
heart that true welfare of the city thai
contains Ills horn.- and interests, which
industrial  and  commercial  expansion
���presents.
Progress, not retrogression is the
order of today the wide world over, '
and in no place upon the globe is the
opportunity for its people to make
good with the prospect of advancement brighter than in New Westminster, already so bountifully endowed ;
with such natural advantages as a
commanding situation, a splendid climate, and beautiful scenic surround-
li gs.
New Owners Contemplate Extensive
Additions to Building.
The Masonic block, which was recently purchased by the Westminster
Trust company, will be vacated by th..
Masonic lodges next week, and alterations in the structure are expected
at an early date. A draft plan has
been submitted to the committee having chiirge of the matter and will be
approved at the next meeting of the
board. It is proposed to add another
story to the building and construct
up-to-date offices on the upper floors.
The alterations will cost something
like $8000.

Ottawa, March 28.-j-The senate rail-
way committee this morning resumed
consideration of the Lancaster Level
Ings Rill, and ��vere still debating at the t o'c'.ock adjournment.
W. II Blggaf, K ('.. general solicitor for the Grand Trunk railway, said
the bill was against the Interests ot
both the public an,] the railways. The
bill would compel the Grand Trunk
to bo reduce the spi ,1 of its trains
that the time between Montreal and
Toronto would ,��� dbdOled, Th. coat
of thv protection required would run
into the millions, and even if the
company could raise the money it
could not comply with the crosslnij requirements by Januar; I as called for
by the bill. Hostile legislation against
railways, he added, would militate
against investment in Camilla.
Senator Power moved an amendmenl to leave th<- control of speed in
ihe hands of the railway commission.

tempt me into a critical attitude.
Foundation Safe.
The surface indications and the two
test pits that were sunk Justify the
conclusion that the foundation is
abundantly safe for the height of proposed dam. From my examination
and from descriptions given by men
who saw the test pits as they were being dug, the inference Is drawn that
the description of the gravel lied was
unfortunately worded. The report on
ithe pits states that there is from -
to 18 feet of clay, 18 Inches of hard-
pan and then an unknown depth Of
washed gravel
Hydraulic Filling.
The dam is of tho type known as
t hydraulic-filled. The cross sectional
! dimensions conform to the best prac-
I tiep. The materials available at Lake
! Coquitlam for hydraulic work are acceptable.      This  hynraulic. tilled  pro-
ncres at Coquitlam" lake will cost,
roughly speaking, upward of a quarter of * million dollars, and to re-
i .ove the surface soil, over half a million more. The sums aro prohibitory. If the timber were merchantable the clearing could he made to
pay for itself, but I am informed that
fche greater portion of the trees are
valueless to cat for tlie market. Even
so, time would be consumed in the
operation without compensating results, for the source ot the greatest
taint is in the soil.

noticeable degree. The lake is a cold '
body of water 160 feet deep and cov- , wlirn
ering 2300 acres. The water to be
held in the lake proper will be abows
ihlrty times in excess of that over the
Hooded areas.
It may be expected that offensive
odors, approaching a st_tfch, will toe
generated at certain seasons along the
shore of the lake, but it does not follow that the odors will be communicated  to the    water.      Moreover the
extending all over Ore globe.     Without doubt, the hydraulic filled process,
carefully  executed,  makes the
best earthern dam.
No core wall is projected in the
proposed dam, reliance being placed
entirely upon the water packed clay in
the central portion of the dam to pre-
*rent leakage, and evidently no fears
are entertained that burrowing animals will ever he a menace.
Favor Core Wall.

Pipe.
'��� A.though initial preventative mea
ures are noi advised, it is Bugested
that before any flooding is permitted,
the Naneoiiver Power Company be
Btrlctly obligated to provide means of
removing all color, odor and taste
that may he inflicted upon the water
supply of the city of New Westminster. The Vancouver Power Company have offered to extend the intake pipe from the dam to the foot
of the lake. ; The extension parti-
eiilarly.if it is made to cross the river
to the side opposite to the large patch
,,i Hooded land, may ameliorate the
nuisance of suspended vegetable
growth in the water, but may not
avoid the ultimate necessity of subsequent purification of the water, in
which case the cost of extending the
pipe line would be a complete loss.-;.!
am Inclined to believe thai it is better
not to make the extension al the outset.
No cognizance is taken of the water
removed from the river a long distune,��� below the dam by consumers of
the municipality of Coquitlam, Because the water wil] clear Itself of
any Imperfection derived from the
lnke before ll reaches the point wh_re

There is one argumeni in favor of a
corewa 1. nnd ii there were no Other
il would be sullicieiu to control my
view.-;. It is this. TTiere is a deep-
seated "��� ellng among the people of the
municipality of Coquitlam that the
dam will be unsafe.
The Tunnels,
Tt is recommended .nat in base bedrock can be re_Sh(j8 n eoV-ewall of reinforced ee_.ci-te 10 -hcheg or 12 inches thick be. built along the centre line
of the dam extending from bedrock

(Jam.
The controlling works���waste weir
and outlet tunnel, are subject to revision. The power company'- engineer has already modified the tunnei
by substituting two concrete, stee:-
lined, tunnels, ,-ach !) feet in diameter
for the one tunnel shown on the plans.
They als0 propose to shift the tunnels
to the opposite bank. These changes
are in tlie right direction.
The tunnels are necessary adjuncts
to provide means for Hushing the
river and for drawing down the water
in the reservoir when occasion demands, tmt no dependence should be
placed upon them to protect the dam
from being overtopped by a Hood.
IThere is no special reason to tear
that they would fall in an emergency,
but the fact must not be overlooked
the valves are submerged under 60
feet of water where quick repair and
attention cannot he given them.
Recommendations.
I recommend that the application of
for
permission io build an hydraullctfllled
iln.ii in iiii -o tlie water In Lake tv--
qult.ain 60 feet, be granted subject: to
the following requirements:
(a) That the water supply to the
city of New Westminster be furnished
at the same pressure as it now receives, or greater at the option of the
city.
(bj That the Vancouver Power
'Company obligate itself to provid,.
means of removing the vegetable
growth aud all color, odor and taste
that may be inflicted upon tbe water
supp.y of the city of New Westminster as a result of the construction
and operation of the dam or dams.
(c) That the Vancouver Power Company relinquish to the city of New-

Paris, March 26.���.The desert of Sahara will blossom, if not lik,. a rose,
at least with the spineless cactus. Of
this Cretlen Rledel, of San Francisco,
who la here, is entirely confident.
Luther Burbank, the horticultural
wizard  who,  in  a  sense, created  the
j spin.'.ess cactus, is a personal friend
of Mr, Rledel, who has been making
I horticultural experiments of bis own.
A spineless cactus will grow on a
tin roof. Rledel says, With it he proposes io transform the Sahara into a
tropical garden, said Rledel.
"The French government is making
experiments to reclaim desert land on
Mayotte. :i small island, off the coast
of Madagascar. But the experiments
were undertaken with the inferior kind
of cactus. I propose to introduce into
the Sahara, the spineless cactus, which
is not only food for cattle, hut water
for man, animals and plants, for 94
per cent, of this cactus is water.
Heretofore animals could not eat enc-
I tus because of its thorns.    The fruit
