Two of Those Who Sought to Supply Liquor in This Way
Were Given Privilege—A. J. Prudhomme's Renewal Application is Found to be
Out of Order and is Not
J.  A.  Smith.     The  chairman  of  the
board, Aid. Hilditch, said the action
The Board of License Commissioners for the city sat on Wednesday afternoon and again yesterday,
transacting the general business for
the quarter. The question of the
Savoy license, which can always be
depended upon to come up before
the commission at every sitting, was
again to the fore. The order of Air.
Justice Clement, of the Supreme
Court was complied with and the
license ordered to be issued in accord with the order of the court. An
application for a renewal of the license evidently intended to cover the
time from July 15, was found to be
out of order and no action was
taken on it.
The renewals were granted to the
various other hotels and wholesale
In the matter of bottle licenses
which have hitherto been refused,
the commissioners, acting upon the
advice of the city solicitor that these
did not affect the number of hotel
licenses possible, granted two that
were in order to E. J. Maynard and

was taken purely because it was interpreted that these licenses did not
affect the number of hotel licenses
that could be granted.
The commission was composed of
Aid. Hllditch acting mayor, who
presided, Aid. Smith and Commissioner J. E. Merryfield.
Chief Vickers reported that all the
licensed places had been conducted
properly during the past quarter.
Proceeding to business the first
matter te come up was that of the
case of A. J. Prudhomme of the
Savoy Hotel.   •
Mr. Peters, K. C, asked if Mr.
Alex Manson had the original mandamus in the Prudhomme case.
Mr. Manson said that he had returned  it.
'   Mr.     Peters    said    the    original
should have been kept. v
After some discussion, in which
the chairman said they must have
the document before them, Mr. Peters said he had a copy and would
soon be able to produce it as be had
sent for it.
The copy being produced it was
read. The application of Mr. Prudhomme for a renewal of the license
was read also.
Aid. Smith moved that a renewal
of the license be granted in accordance with the terms of the man-
da in us.
The question of voting came up
when it was pointed out that the
action was taken as a result of the
mandamus, the city solicitor pointing out that the license would expire
in July.
Renewals of licenses were granted
to  J.   Y.   Rochester,  Empress  Hotel;
Peter Black, Central Hotel; Olier
Ilesner, New Knox Hotel; M. Bondeaux, Windsor Hotel; G. A. Sweet,
G. T.  V. Inn.
Tbe transfer of the Premier Hotel
from J. E. Gilmore to Fred Hen-
ning, as manager for the Premier
Hotel Company, was granted on the
application of A. Carss, solicitor for
the company. .
The renewal of the license of the
Premier  Hotel  was  then  granted.
The application of Mr. Prudhomme for a renewal was brought
up. It was pointed out that the application asked for a renewal from
June 14.
Mr. Peters pointed out that this
was not  in  order.
Mr. Prudhomme asked to see tbe
application. He meant it from July
"Why didn't you say what you
meant, then?" asked Mr. Peters
pointing out that the application
read   from   June   14.
Mr. Prudhomme said if it was so
stated it was a clerical error he intended to have it date from July 15.
Alex Manson, appearing for Mr.
Prudhomme said that Mr. Prudhomme did not know what would be
the result of the application before
the supreme court. He could not
ask for a renewal for something that
had not then been granted. He contended that the application was
made to have the Board consider the
question of a renewal of the license
at this,sitting.
Mr, Peters could not see why a
renewal could not be asked from
July 15 as well as from June 14.
Reading from the statute Mr. Peters
contended that the law was very
clear. The application as it appeared
invalidated any renewal which
might be granted under it.
"Don't you think that Mr. Prud-,
honinie's old position, that he made a
mistake, is the more tenable?"
asked Mr. Peters.
Mr. Manson wanted to know
what could have been done under
the circumstances.
Mr. Peters, however, did not appear to be inclined to give any advice in the matter.
The chairman wanted to know
what his application was, was it an
application for a renewal from July
Mr. Manson said that they were in
an anomolous position of applying
for something that was not in existence,
Aid. Prudhomme asked if the
board refused a renewal of the li-
ceiTSo granted under the mandamus
Commissioner Smith said there
was no application for it. It could
not therefore be refused.

0. B. Smith, jr., superintendent of
the Granby Company's mines at
Phenix, arrived in the city yesterday
on his way south from the Hidden
Creek mines, which arc under option
to the Granby Company. Mr. Smith,
while he did not doubt that the
mines would be taken over, had no
official word of the final closing of
the deal. The ore body at the mine
is a very large one and at present
the Granby Company has done the
necessary work to prove the body of

Just what tbe policy of the company will be as to developing the
mine, Mr. Smith could not say. That
would be decided upon after the officials had been consulted. H. Mac-
Donald, who has charge at Goose
Bay, accompanied Mr. Smith and
J. A. Marrin, a merchant of. Phenix,
was also a member of the party.

LONDON, June 10.—Premier Fisher, of Australia, advocated at
tbe Imperial Conference yesterday the nationalization of the Atlantic cubic in order to cheapen arid render more effective communication between Great Britain, Canada, Australia and New Zealand,
and by thus acquiring complete control of telegraph and cable
lines to secure the All-Red Route.
Premier Ward, of New Zealand,   advocated    state-owned    cables
between England and Canada, and reduction of the rates through- •
out the Empire and the establishment of a chain of Britisii state-
owned  wireless stations.
The resolutions were later withdrawn in favor of one proposed
by the postmaster general of Great Britain to the effect that if the
owners of Atlantic cables could not see their way clear from time
to time to reduce cable rates, the various dominion governments
consider the practicability of laying state-owned Atlantic cables.   .

Over the Line
General Superintendent Mehan of
the Grand Trunk Pacific, left this
morning by special train for a trip
over the line. He has as his guests
representatives of the newspapers,
Aid. Smith, A. .1. Morris, president
of the Board of Trade and a few
others.    They will return tonight.
That the importations of nursery
stock to Britisii Columbia for the
past spring is heavier by 40 per cent
than that of any previous season was
the information given by Mr. Thomas Cunningham, provincial fruit In-
spctor in Vancouver.
"The total number of trees and
plants imported up to April 30 for
the present year," he said, "was
over 3,000,000. This Is an Increase
of fully 40 per cenl over 1910, which
had broken the record of any previous season. I estimate Hint If
reciprocity fails, the fall Importations will bring our total up to
6,000,000 trees and plants. This
shows thai here is some settlemenl
and orchard plaining going em in
Hrliish  Columbia   siiU."
Asked as to what lines bad shown
the most noticeable Increase, Mr,
Cunningham said: "The.re has
really been a noticeable falling off
in the number of peach trees imported. Not nearly as many came in
as last year, and In my opinion it is
a good thing, as we shall do better
to confine ourselves to the best class
of apples, pears and cherries. 1 am
glad to say, the most notable increase is in the number of apple
trees imported. . .eere has also been
a good increase in the other fruits
I have mentioned. Remember also
that the figures I have quoted do
not Include the output of our local
nurseries of which there are 13 or
14 scattered through the province,
some of them doing considerable
business. The Riverside nursery at
Grand Forks, for example, sold out
its entire stock of standard trees.

G. T. P. Starts Its Regular Service From Prince Rupert
Over the Westernmost 100 Miles of Its
Transcontinental System—Much
Interest is Manifested
in the Event.
On Wednesday at I o'clock, the
first scheduled train left the city for
Coppr River, at mile 100 on the
Grand Trunk Pacific. The event
was marked by no ostentatious display on the part of the company, but
on the contrary, sharp on the scheduled time the train moved out as
though a practice of long standing
was but being conformed to. From
now on the departure and arrival of
the local train will become a settled
feature* of ihe life of the place.
The event was but another of the
epoch-marking features which are
following one another so closely in
the history of this young city. It
marks the beginning of a service
which will quickly be extended until
in a few short months this city becomes the Pacific starting point for
the through trains to all parts of the
Changed Conditions
As the passenger portion of ' the
train was being made up at noon
today J. H. Plllsbury, the engineer
who first located here in charge of
the work of surveying the townsite,
passed alongside and watched the
shuting in of the coaches. Although
at times residents are apt to become
impatient and want to see the work
accomplished all at once, there can
be no doubt that Mr. Pillsbury must
have felt that the change that had
passed over the city in the few years
since he pitched his tent near the
same site where the modern train
was being made up, had been marvelous. The development of the
next few years must of necessity be
much more marked than it has been
during  the   same   time   in   the  past.
The putting on of the service
marks the creation of Prince Rupert as a railway centre. While
there has been considerable freight
moved up over the rails last year
and again this season, before the
regular service was inaugurated, yet
the train on Wednesday was -the
first of those running on a regular
schedule under autl.o ity.
The   First   Train
Tlie general superintendent of tbe
line, W. C. C. Mehan, who has seen
the various divisions west of Winnipeg started upon their services,
had arrangements all in first-clas's
condition for the start, although he
had only a few days' notice that the
necessary permission had been given. Shortly before twelve o'clock
noon, the passenger end of the train
was shunted into position easl of
Centre street, where il stood in position until the time' of sinning.

Before the time of starting had
arrived there was a large gathering
of citizens assembled to see the train
pull out and the camera was very
much in evidence until the passing
out of Hie train had become a matter of history.
Officials Went  I'p
General Superintendent -Mehan,
Superintendent McNlcholl, accompanied by a few friends, made the
trip over the route to see that all
went well. Train Agent Holtby was
on duty and entered upon the office

such time as there is a regular system of ticket offices along the
As the speed at which the train
is permitted under the orders of the
Railway Commission, Copper River
will not be reached until after nine
o'clock each evening and on the return trip the time of arrival is from
nine in the morning until twenty
minutes past five in the evening.
Hot.   Lunches  Served
In order to meet the convenience
of the traveling public the officials
of the company have arranged for a
hot lunch to be served on the train
each way. By arrangements with
the commissariat department of tbe
railway, Mr. Mehan is able to serve
hot coffee and tea, sandwiches, pie,
etc., on the train so as to meet the
convenience of the traveling public.
In.time there will be established at
some convenient point a restaurant
where hot meals may be served, the
train making a stop sufficiently long
to allow this.
On the first train out several
freight cars were taken on carrying
material for the road. The service
will continue to be a mixed one for
the present.
.Many  Made  Trip
Owing to the fact that the train
was the first scheduled one out 'if
the city, a number of citizens look
passage by It, some proceeding a
few stations oul where they transferred to steamer and came back to
the city.
There was a large number of pac-
sengers for the end of the tracK.
Mr. Little, the pioneer news agent
here, purchased the first ticket.

A great objee-tion to harness
horse races in the mind of the sport
lover is the many starts necessary to
get the horses going. The horses in
a running race are often kept five
or more minute's at the post, but
when the barrier does go up they
are away, and there is no calling
them back. In the trotting races
the horses come more or less slowly
down lo the wire, and if they are in
anything like a straight line the
judges b't them go. If several of
the starters are pretty well back the
horses have to turn around and try
it all iiver again. Nol only is It a
tedious business, but it leaves the
judge open iei a lot of criticism. If
an owner sees his horse away to a
good start the first or second time
and they are called back, then on
the third trip, when his horse gets
a bad start, and the word is given
to "let her go," he is liable to be a
bit sore, and really you can hardly
blame him.
Speaking to a man at Dufferin
Park, Toronto, who has been closely
connected with the harness horse
for many years, the question of the
practicability of a standing start was
broached. The gentleman referred
to said he had started trotters
standing and had found that it
worked out very well. It might be
said tha tsome horses take a little
time to get into their stride, and if
started in a race standing would
"break" several times before they
got going properly. What if they
did? The horses are supposed to be
trotters, and the one who can swing
into his stride right at the start, instead of having to go 2"> or 50
yards before he gets going, is surely
entitled  to  the  advantage.

Edmonton's   Street   Railway   Is   Believed  to Have Been   Brought
to  Paying Basis  Now-
According to the amount of business done by the street railway department    during the    past   month,
there is little question but what the
department  is now on a paying basis,  says     the     Edmonton     Capital.
During     May     487,348     passengers
were carried, while the estimated Income is placed  at  $20,389.40.
During ihe month there wns an
average of 1S cars per day on the
line and during rush hours the department could have made use of
seven or eight more. As a matter
of fact, there were times, Saturdays,
especially, when there were as many
as 21 cars in operation. Other cars
are now on the way to the city and
within ihe next few days the department will have a complement of 30
The revenue of the department
can be estimated but as yet it is impossible to find out what the expenses are. This is due mainly lo
the fact thai the department does
not know what it is paying for power. This quest ion was one of the
first which Commissions!* Bouillon
announced must be settled when he-
first reached the city. He advised
a series of monthly reports which
would show Hie revenue and expense's of all the departments, bul

GRAHAM ISLAND — "The surest
sign of the progress of a town or
district Is its newspaper—live, active, hustling." "The Masset Review," M asset, Q.C.1 Friday, June 16, 1911.
The only Main Line Town-
site in British Columbia in
which the Grand Trunk
Pacific Railway Company
has announced its joint
first glance will show you that
ELLISON is located at the junction
of the Skeena River and the Bulk-
ley Valley. The Grand Trunk
Pacific has announced that they are
joint owners in the townsite of Ellison. Now, my dear reader, you must
remember that up to date the Grand
Trunk Pacific has not announced
that it has any interest in any other
main line towsite in British Columbia.    Does that start you thinking?
STUDY THE MAP and you will
find Ellison Is where the railway tracks leave navigation. That
fact is a very Important one for conservative investors to think over.
What is known as the Hazelton district covers a territory many miles
In extent In every direction radiating from the townsite of Ellison.
Mining machinery, ore shipments,
smelters, reduction plants and all
sorts of mining operations starting
up in this rich mineral region, must
necessarily have a metropolis, a
HUB, a headquarters. If any sane,
conservative man can figure out any
other spot except Ellison for the hub
ef the great commerce of this district, his plan should be very inter
esting to the Grand Trunk Pacific
officials. It does seem as though
these officials, after several years of
investigation and engineering,
would know just what they were do-
i:».g when they put their official
stamp on Ellison.
STUDY THAT MAP.—I desire to
say to all parties who are talking townsites in the vicinity ul Skeena River and the Bulkley Valley
that there will no doubt be several
small towns, just the same as one
always finds in a mining district.
There will be towns in the vicinity
of Ellison along branch railways,
probably towns at the ends of branch
lines made to serve the mines and
the collieries, but it will be history
repeating itself in regard to the
building up of every metropolis.
Ellison has every natural advantage,
has every earmark of being the future mercantile and financial center of the Skeena River mining dislrict and the entrance to the Bulk-
ley Valley.
 o ■
STUDY THAT MAP and you will
find that all of the mining
towns and railroad towns around
there just beginning to    be    talked
about will only be feeders to the
city and port of ELLISON. The
Giand Trunk Pacific has put Its
official stamp on Ellison. Do you
believe the company will do as much
for townsites owned by individuals
as it will for one in which its stockholders are joint owners? If you
do, don't buy any lots in Ellison. If
you desire to make a permanent investment, or merely to make a little
quick money, you must decide for
yourself right now. Do you propose
to follow the individual townsite
promoters or the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway Company.
 o —
S'TUDY THAT MAP.—If you desire to put your money into a
real estate promoter's townsite you
will have many, many opportunities
this summer. The average promoter
is full of hurrah and red fire. He
must enthuse investors of the mail
order class with his wares. ELLISON is in the Missouri class. Therefore, I am not telling any fairy
tales about it. I am making statements that can be readily verified.
—, o	
STUDY      THAT      MAP.—If     you
want to join that great army of
investors-at-long-range,     then     you
should put your money Into promoters' townsites. If you want a perfectly safe and sound investment,
certain to bring you large profits,
then put your money where the
Grand Trunk Pacific, after years of
careful investigation, have put their
likely the Grand Trunk Pacific
will have any other townsite in British Columbia for sale this year. The
officials of the company state that
the company is not interested in any
townsite in the Hazelton district
with  the exception of ELLISON.
ELLISON Is on the bank of the
Skeena at its confluence with
the Bulkley. 'Sou may change railway surveys; you may change the
location of towns along the line of
road, but you cannot change the
geography of the country through
which the railway passes. The head
of navigation necessarily means an
important townsite. Ellison will
not only be at the head of navigation but the center of a mining district wonderful in its resources that
is  now   being  opened   up,   and   for
which Ellison will be the shipping
point both by rail and water. The
fact that trains may change engines
up or down the line or in the suburbs of the town of Ellison does not
amount to shucks in building up a
town when such places are compared with a town located where
rails and navigation meet.
find on the official plan of Ellison that a large part of the town-
site has been reserved for future
sales, the same as the company has
done with certain sections of Prince
Rupert townsite. There are, therefore, at this time, comparatively
few lots on the market. You must
hurry if you want one.
ADDITION to Ellison, only a
small parcel of land, lies within
eight blocks of the site of the railway station. Lots in this are being
offered. I am advising my clients
to buy Rogers Addition lots at $150
for inside lots and *^50 for corners.
Terms—10, per cent discount for
cash, or 10 per cent down and the
balance on easy terms;  no interest.

Granby Company Hay Extend Its Hold
ings in the Vicinity of
the Nine.
Experiments Are Heing Carried-Out
on Adjoining Properties with
a \ lew to Purchase
The Granby Company's option is
now almost up at the Hidden Creek
Aline on Observatory Inlet. It is not
that the purchase will be made and
that the control will pass from M. K.
Rodgers to the Granby people. Following this reduction works are assured and steady mining will be
done on the property. Already there
i sa large body of ore blocked out
for work.
It Is now announced that the
Granby Company have taken an option on adjoining property with the
ultimate object in view of purchase.
The property being looked over Is
controlled by Mr. Column and is said
to be quite as promising as the Hidden Creek proposition. The Interest
aroused by the Granby Company In
the camp is attractln gnunibers to
that part of the country.
Busy Season  Is  Expected  in  Legitimate Mining Operations on
Portland  Canal
That the Portland Canal mining
division this season will witness a
greater activity and more genuine
mining development Is the firm belief of those who have closely followed the subject, says the Portland
Canal Miner. Every week now witnesses tbe resumption of work on
one or two properties. This week
Superintendent H. W. Heidman, of
the Big Casino and Superintendent
F. B. Shearme of the Portland-Bear
River commenced operations at their
respective properties. William
Clark, representing Captain John
Irving, of Victoria, Is here to open
up the Three R. group lying south
of the Red Cliff.    0.  B.  Bush  has
taken in supplies and an outfit for
the Salmon Bear River Alining Co.,
and work has started, in charge of
Pat Daly. J. Fred Ritchie has arranged for a resumption of development on the Copper Cliff across
from town, and G. A. Clothier will
superintend the work on the property of the Indian Alines, Limited,
where an outfit has already been
packed in. At. the least calculation
before the end of the month, two
dozen properties will be on the development list. Even though the
season is backward, most of the
mines and prospects on which work
has recently been resumed have had
trails built to them and many have
substantial camps to house their
men. As soon as the railway is
completed to the Red Cliff several
properties will commence sending
out sample shipments, and both the
Portland Canal and the Red Cliff
mines will then enter the permanent
shipping list. The management of
the Canadian North Eastern railway
is rushing the laying of steel which
has reached Glacier creek, and as
soon as the bridge is installed at
that point little time will be lost in
connecting up to Bitter Creek and
thence  to  the  Red  Cliff.
"Steamboat"    Wns Given tlie
Designation It Now
In 1879 there was a short-lived
gold excitement on Ruby Creek—not
the Ruby Creek that flows into the
Fraser about nine miles below Hope,
but the Ruby Creek In the Steamboat. In that year there came to
Hope, James Corrlgan, W. L. Flood
and W. A. Starrett ail of whom still
live In Hope, and, after William
Yeats, are the pioneers of the district, Flood and Corrlgan together.
These two built a raft-to float down
to the Skagit River to Ruby Creek,
and the point at which they sailed
they named "Steamboat Landing,"
their raft being honored with the
title of "Steamboat." From this the
locality became known as "Steamboat," and for want of a better appellation the term was finally applied to the neighboring mountain;
hence "Steamboat Alountain."
.1.  F.  Bledsoe, Well  Known on This
Coast,  Tells of  Finds in
New North
The extent, variety and value of
the Britisii Columbia Peace River
country as a mining district is only
now—with the prospect of early
transportation facilities —obtaining
public recognition. Describing the
coal outcroppings on the Pine-River,
a report just received from Mr. J. F.
Bledsoe, one of the pioneers of the
Peace River country and the initiator of the Finlay River Development
Company, shows that for a considerable distance along the Pine River
there are indications of coal, and
these are especially noticeable at
Cariboo .Mountain and Coal Brook.
In a stream to the east of the Cariboo .Mountains a seam is exposed
which is fully ten feet thick. This
is a hard, lustrous coal, which on
the surface looks like anthracite, but
as no work lias been done as yet,
it is difficult to classify definitely.
There can, however, be no doubt
about its being of great value as a
fuel. At Coal Brook there is also an
immense showing of coal.
The value of this coal find Is
groat. II is situated only a few
miles from the Pine Hirer Pass,
through which Ihe Pino Pass Hallway Company and the Pacific and
Hudson Bay Railway Company will
come. The route of the latter railroad will lie along the Pine River,
following the very best possible zone
of attack for tbe exposed coal seams.
The coal will be required for the
operation of the railroad, also the
Pine Pass Railroad and possibly for
a section of the Grand Trunk Pacific
and Canadian Northern Pacific Railways. It will be used on the Peace
River steamboats ,and In the houses
of quite a large farming district, and
In various towns. In connection with
the Pine River district it may be noticed that close to the Pine Pass
some free gold ores have been found
which may prove of considerable
value when more work Is done. Also
In the North Pine River there are
great deposits of arsenical iron ore
which may also prove to be of value.
There is a fine seam of coal, too,
at Fort McKay, and Mr. Bledsoe

was a good quality of bituminous
coal, which could be used for common blacksmitblng, bin not for
welding. Wliere exposed and worked
this seam goes down about five or
six feet, and it seems to be getting

The license commissioners yesterday decided to grant two bottle licenses to meet a demand for those
who desire to purchase liquors in
small quantities for use in private
homes. The objection hitherto
urged against the bottle license was
that il interfered with the number
of hotel licenses that could be granted, the law being interpreted to include both bar, bottle and restaurant as retail licenses within the
meaning of the act concerning which
the restriction as to population is
pill   on.
Mr. Peters, the city solicitor, however, has put another Interpretation
upon the act and contends that the
bottle license is not to be so considered. On ihis opinion the bottle licenses were granted, it was explained.

reciprocity policy. The speakers
were Mr. A. S. Goodeve and Hon.

case of Swift vs. David has been
made. The case was tried before
Mr. Justice Clement some time ago,
and judgment was given against the
defendant, Mr. L. W. David, for
$151,000. Whether it will prove to

to be discovered, but it is thought
likely that a further appeal will be
made to a superior court. Messrs.
Davis and Pugh acted for the plaintiff and Messrs. Bodwell and R. L.
Reid for the defendant. The action
arose out of a contract under which
Mr. Lester David sold a large block
of timber land to what is now the
Canadian Western Lumber Company. In the contract Air. David
guaranteed that the quantity of timber on the land would cruise a certain number of feet board measure.
Later the lumber company brought
suit against Mr. David, claiming a
breach of this guarantee. The case
was heard before Air. Justice Clement, and the company recovered
judgment for $151,000. The court
of appeal yesterday reversed this
this judgment.

Wfater Supply and Electric Power !
For Prince Rupert |
!The  recommendations  of   R.  H. Thomson, city engineer
Seattle,  relative  to  Prince   Rupert's  water  supply   and
e  development of electrical  energy  in  conjunction  with
at Lake Woodworth,  has been printed by the council for
_ -neral information.    The report is as follows:
May 20,  1911.
Pursuant to your request, 1 visited your city during the latter
part of ihe month of April, this year, for the purpose of conferring
with you and studying with your engineer, your present and your proposed win er supply system.
Your Present System
Your present system is one which you have taken over from the
Grand Tr ink Pacific Railway Company, and consists of small machine-
banded, \4-ooden water pipes', delivering water from a spring or creek
from the (mountain side to Ihe south of the city, reinforced at times by
water furbished by a small pumping plant. These mains were laid for
pioneering purposes and were evidently intended to supply the company
and the oljty during tlie period of early construction only, and to form a
basis uponi which to design, and with reference to which to construct a
more extensive and more permanent system, guided by the development
of the city. No doubt for the time they were designed to serve the city,
they were .'airly sufficient, and by some slight reinforcement, which your
engineer has now under serious consideration, can be made to serve fairly
well for thii next two years with the one exception of providing an ample
fire protect ion during either the dry cold weather of winter or the dry
warm weathjer of summer.
Your Proposed New System
Upon arriving at your city, I found that your engineer had very carefully desigiiejd a distribution system for the city, Intending to use therein,
standard casji iron pipe and to erect in connection therewith, modern fire
hydrants ami to secure the supply of water by gravity from the Shawatlan
watershed.    \
.Source of Supply •
The supjbly from the Shawatlans watershed consists of the run-off
from the nort.lh and south forks of the Shawatlans River, which discharge
their waters filnally into Lake Shawatlans. Lake Shawatlans, itself, whilst
a large body i>f excellent water, lies at an elevation of but 39 feet above
low tide, and. vhilst constituting an enormous impounding reservoir, is
unsuited for use as a gravity water supply, and could be used only in
connection witjh a pumping system. Inasmuch as the first cost of a suitable water gyatem to be supplied by steam pumps delivering from Lake
Shawatlans, would be almost as expensive as the construction of a gravity
system and vas'tl..- more expensive in upkeep and operation, it is needless,
under present conditions, to discuss the propriety or cost of the construction of a pumpling plant in connection with that lake, unless it were to
be used but a short time only, the pumps and steam power used being
those now owned by the city, and the pumps operated to force water
through mains 1 nil in such a way as to form a part of your final gravity
system. The total area of the Shawatlans watershed has never been fully
determined. Ail the head waters of the south fork of the Shawatlans
River, however, 111 ere is a magnificent lake, nestled under and between
mountains of gitoit height, known as Lake Woodwortli. This lake is
about two and a |<itarter miles in length and about one-third of a mile in
width and has a Isurface area of 454 acres, and has a present elevation of
336 feet above city datum. The watershed tributary to this lake has been
measured and fowjJSl to contain 9.56 square miles. The area of that portion of the wntei'i-n.Wl upon the nortli fork of the Shawatlans River, as I
have said, has net yet been triangulated, but the probabilities are that
that portion of the watershed of the north fork, lying at such an elevation
as will permit of tlie run-off being carried by an economical canal or
conduit into Lake ;Woodworth for the purpose of impounding, is approximately four square miles, so that within the Shawatlans watershed, there
Is probably an area of 13 % square miles which now is, or can be made,
tributary to Lake Woodworth.
The record of precipitation In the vicinity of Lake Woodworth has
not been kept a sufficient number of years to enable us to furnish you
with any full and Complete record of the same, and the run-off of the
stream has not been weired a sufficient length of time to enable us to
determine with absolute certainty nor with absolute accuracy, what the
average run-off In cujblc feet per second for an entire year would be, from
either fork of the riv.oi'. From the most careful study which your engineer
has been able to make, it would appear, however, that from the Lake
Woodworth watershed, alone, by Impounding by means of a very inexpensive dam, a run-om of 75 cubic feet, per second for the entire year can
reasonably be expecterl, and that it is entirely probable that an additional
25 cubic feet per second or more, can eventually be obtained by the diversion of the north fori- of ihe river into Lake Woodworth. It, therefore,
seems probable thai from the Shawatlans watershed you are safe in assuming that finally you Jill be able to secure a continuous run-off from and
through Lake Wonr'K'iJirili, of  100  feet per second.

y of the water for domestic and municipal pur-
uestlon, from the fact that the entire watershed Is
.our municipality and you are able to prevent any
I therein, whatsoever, and there has never been
ley  man In the past.    It should, therefore, be as
heaven, Owing to the large amount of peat or
tin-ally- in the basins and the pockets throughout
will probably always be slightly discolored, and
ell time, carry a very slight taste from  the peat.
This diaooVcratlon,'however, i^ not such as to be offensive to the eye and
tbe tasjfe is not offensive to the palate. Neither the discoloration nor the
taste i« nearly so marked as the water so highly prized by the great City
of Liverpool, which It derives at such an enormous cost and brings to the
city a/distance of 65 miles from Lake Vyrnwy, an artificial lake made by
the CJIty of Liverpool at most enormous expense, In the Mountains of
Walem. Therefore, there is no question as to the suitability, and, in fact,-
as t-oi'inpared with the opportunities of the world, there is no question as
tl/ie superiority of the possible supply to be derived from the Shawat-
sl watershed.
1 The permanence of the supply cannot be questioned.
Probable Demand
In order to determine the question of sufficiency of supply, it is nec-
ry to consider the probable area of land which will within a reason-
period of time be covered by your municipality and the probable final
isity of the population thereon, together with the reasonable number of
Ions per capita which will be required on days of maximum draft by
,ir people, both for domestic, manufacturing and commercial purposes,
e question as to the density of population per acre, is of course, one
llch is very difficult to answer with absolute certainty.    In modern days,
is not a common thing for cities to obtain Intense density of population.
Probably the most densely populated city with which we are now familiar
as "modern territory" is tbe City of Glasgow, Scotland. This city has a
density of about sixty persons per acre. On the American Continent, however, we have nothing that in any way approximates such density. One of
the most densely populated of American cities is Newark, New Jersey,
which has a population of 350,000 people within the limit of 23 square
miles, and has an average of but 23 persons per acre. Their maximum
demand has never exceeded eighty imperial gallons per capita per day.
This demand has been made during extremely dry weather and during the
times of intense heat, when a large portion of water was used for
sprinkling lawns, streets, floors, roofs and building fronts for the purpose
of securing a reduced temperature by reason of the evaporation of the
water. No such condition of intense heat can ever be expected to afflict
Prince Rupert, and, after a most careful consideration of the demands of
many cities, I am satisfied that a provision to supply your city with 70
imperial gallons per capita per day, will constitute abundant provision.
1 have made a careful measurement of the area of your city and find
that in all human probability for many years to come, you are limited to a
total area of practically 2,24p acres. The proportionate demands for the
different parts of your city will depend upon the population, or the equivalent population, per acre In  Its various parts.
After an examination of the topography of your city and of tbe relation of the various parts thereof to the probable use and demands of commerce, manufacture and occupation, I have, for the purposes of computation, divided the same into five districts, which I have numbered from
one to five, inclusive, and which I have outlined upon a map, banded you
District NO. 1, 1 believe to be that district which will constitute the
central business area of the city. In this area will be located heavy factories and the heavy commercial institutions of the city and will, probably
be that territory from which the heaviest draft of water will be made for
the supply of railways and steamships, and I believe this territory to be
that which will require a supply of water equivalent to that which would
be demanded by a population of one hundred persons per acre. The
boundaries of this district are as follows:
Commencing at the intersection of Eleventh Street with the waterfront and following Eleventh Street to a point about 200 feet southeasterly from Park Avenue; thence northeasterly to the intersection of Fulton
Street with Fifth Avenue; tbence along Fulton Street to the Park Reserve;
thence through the Park Reserve to an intersection with Young Street,
produced; thence north to the waterfront, and thence southwesterly along
the waterfront to the place of beginning, containing 190 acres.
District No. 2, I consider to be the district which will be occupied by
retail stores an'd apartment houses, and is described as follows:
Commencing at a point on the southwesterly boundary of District
No. 1, as above described, opposite Biggar Place, and running southeasterly to an Intersection with the southeasterly boundary of Section 5 of
the Prince Rupert Townsite; thence northeasterly along the boundary of
said Section 5, and on the line between Sections 6 and 8, to Hays Creek;
thence northwesterly to the waterfront; thence southwesterly along the
waterfront to an intersection with the boundary of District No. 1; thence
following the boundary of District No. 1 to the place of beginning, containing 330 acres. I consider this district one which will require a supply
of water equivalent to that demanded by a population of sixty persons
per acre.
District No. 3 is the district which will, I believe, be occupied principally by warehouses and factories, and is described as follows:
Commencing at the intersection of Eleventh Street with the waterfront; thence in a southwesterly direction, following the waterfront to
the westerly end of Waterfront Block "B"; thence in a northeasterly
direction to the westerly end of Block 12 of Section 4 of the Prince Rupert
Townsite; thence northeasterly, following the alley between Park Avenue
and Kootenay Avenue, to an intersection with Eleventh Street, produced
southeasterly; thence along Eleventh Street to the place of beginning, containing 243 acres. This district should be provided with a supply of water
sufficient to supply a population of 39 persons per acre.
District No. 4 is a district which I consider will be occupied almost
exclusively by residences.    It is described as follows:
Commencing on Eleventh Avenue at a point about 300 feet southeasterly from Edward Avenue; thence along Ele\ enth Avenue, produced, to
Shawatlans Passage; thence following the waterfront northerly and westerly to the northeasterly corner of District No. 2, above described; thence
southeasterly along the boundary of said District No. 2 to the place of
beginning, containing 370 acres. Owing to the topography of the ground
and the amount of land in this territory which will be used for Park purposes, I consider that it will require a supply only for a population of 13
persons per acre.
District No. 4a is a territory which I consider will also be used almost
exclusively for residential purposes and is described as follows:
All that portion of the Townsite lying south of District No. 1 and
District No. 2 and east of District No. 3, containing 462 acres. This
territory also, owing to the topography and the percentage of land which
will be used for Park purposes, I estimate will require for service on the
basis of 13 persons per acre.
District No. 5, which is also a territory destined to be used almost
exclusively for residential ;;urppses, is described  as follows:
All that portion of the Townsite lying southeasterly of Districts 2
and 4 and northeasterly of the line of McBride Street, produced southeasterly, containing 645 acres. This territory should be supplied with a sufficient amount of water to provide for a population of 13 persons per acre.
Reducing the foregoing statements to the form of a table, we have
the following:
TABLE  NO.   1
Estimated  area  of  townsite 2,24 0 acres.
Estimated  Average  Population,  per  acre 30 persons
Estimated  Average daily consumption,  per  capita.70 Imperial gallons

5 13 646 8,386 686,960
2,240 67.478 4,723,460
Tills, as you will observe, provides for the occupation of 2,240 acres
by a population of 67,478 persons, with a total dally consumption of
4,723,460 imperial gallons. Reducing this number of gallons to the
equivalent number of cubic feet per second, It will be found thai the supply demanded at Prince Rupert by a population of 67,478 persons, will !
be at the rate of but  8.74  cubic  feet  per second.
As before said, the estimated run-off from Lake Woodworth alone,
can, by Impounding, be made approximately 75 cubic feet per second. The
supply, therefore, necessary for the service of the estimated population of
some 67,500 persons, is only about one-ninth of the supply which could
be furnished from Lake Woodworth, and only about one-twelfth of the
supply which it appears could be furnished from the Shawatlans watershed. It Is, therefore, needless to say that the possible supply from your
watershed is more than amide for many years to' come.
Discharge of Shawatlans River
So far as the records show, the minimum discharge from Lake Wood-
worth (and that occurring but for a few days In the year), is 7." cubic
feet per second and the maximum discharge 571 second feet. Owing to
the area of the lake a dam which would raise its present surface only four
or five feet, would bo ample for all time to come to guarantee a constant
and safe supply for your city. Shawatlans River for some distance below
Lake Woodworth flows through a sharp ravine or narrow canyon In which a
dam can be constructed to almost any desired height at a very reasonable
cost, and the careful estimate made by your engineer shows thai a dam
only thirty feet In height would be sufficient  to so Impound the run-off
from the watershed now tributary to Lake Woodworth, as to provide a
uniform run-off of 75 cubic feet per second. The advisability of the erection of a dam to raise the surface of the lake any greater height than five
feet, will be discussed later on  in this report.
Inspection of Watershed
In connection with your Mr. Agnew, and also my assistant, Mr. T. H.
Carver, who has co-operated with me in (he study of this matter, 1 traversed Lake Shawatlans, examining the south shores thereof, and followed
up the Shawatlans River and the south fork thereof, to and upon Lake
Woodwortli, examining so far as the condition of the snow would permit,
the topography of the country through which a pipe line would have to be
brought to the city. The two and one-half miles along the south shore of
Lake Shawatlans is flanked by a range Of mountains which are erodeei to
great depths at frequent intervals, by snow slide and water, so as to
make the construction of a pipe line upon sustaining ground along a route
following at all closely to the hydraulic grade line, very difficult of construction and very expensive for maintenance. From the head of Lake
Shawatlans to Lake Woodworth, the country Is still rugged, bul Is not
eroded nearly so seriously, and there are opportunities of constructing
within reasonable' limits of cost, a pipe line either very close tee, or at
some distance below the hydraulic grade line. A pipe line route has been
carefully located by our engineers through this territory, following quite
close to the hydraulic grade line for the purpose of constructing thereon,
a wooden stave conduit. Whilst from point of first cost, a close adherence to the hydraulic gradient is theoretically to be desired for a wooden
stave conduit, practical experience has shown thai the wooden pipe- Is tar
more durable when placed under some considerable head, such a head
as will thoroughly saturate the wood. There is not any material increase
in the cosl of constructing this pipe so as to fall under such head, over
and above the cost of constructing close to the hydraulic gradient, ami,
Inasmuch as the length of life of the pipe is the point to be particularly
considered, I have recommended your engineer to cause a new survey to
be made so as to locate this portion of the line at an elevation of at least
fifty feet below the hydraulic gradient, and in so doing, to make use of
such ground as may be most economically traversed in the excavation of
the trench and for the delivery of material, even though we might drop
as far as eighty feet below the hydraulic gradient. From such inquiry as
1 was able to make, and from such observation of the land as It was possible to make under the conditions which prevailed at the time of making
my exaination, I believe that a line constructed on this lower level, by
reason of lesser cost of excavation and delivery of material, would, if
anything, be less expensive than the use of the higher line. This survey
has not yet been completed, or at least, I have not secured a profile of
such line.
Owing to the forbidding character of tbe ground on the ground on
the mountain sides along the south shore of Lake Shawatlans, your engineer has suggested the' propriety of dropping the pipe line down upon a
flat or bench of land extending out from the foot of the mountain into
the lake, which would be laid hare and made part of the upland by lowering the surface of the lake about ten feet. With your Mr. Agnew, we
visited the outlet of Lake Shawatlans and found the level of the lake
to be retained by a very peculiar dyke of very few feet in thickness, and
there is no question but that this dyke can be removed at very slight expense, so that the theory of your engineer of so lowering the lake and using
the upland which would be'created by so doing, is absolutely correct, and
this theory should be followed.
Present Necessary Supply and Character of Pipe
Upon first thought, it occurred to me that along the entire shore of
Lake Shawatlans and to the narrows separating the peninsula from Kaien
Island, twenty-four inch barrel stave wooden pipe might be used to good
advantage, instead of the twenty-four inch cast iron suggested by your
engineer. After a careful consideration, however, of the probable cost
of this wooden stave pipe, based upon the best figures obtainable, as
compared with the cost of standard cast iron pipe, 1 am led to doubt the
expediency of substituting wooden stave pipe for cast Iron pipe throughout this territory, unless the proposition would be considered of bringing
into the city at the present time, not more than fifty per cent of the
amount of water which will eventually be required.
To deliver 8.74 cubic feet per second, which it is estimated your city
will finally require, demands the use of a twenty-four inch pipe. The
question to be determined after careful consideration, is whether there is
any present need for incurring so great an expense as would be required
to be incurred to lay down a pipe to bring that amount of water to the
city at this time. A private corporation, carefully considering the value of
an investment, considered with reference to compound interest and having
due regard to the demands of the city, would, in all human probability,
not at this time construct a pipe of greater size than eighteen inches in
diameter along this section or any other portion of the work. A pipe
eighteen inches in diameter, would deliver to you 2,366,000 imperial
gallons per day, amply sufficient for a population of 33,800 people. This
can be constructed at a cost not to exceed $2.90 per foot, as against a
cost of $6.80 per foot for a twenty-four Inch e-ast iron main. The total
distance along the shore of the lake may be taken as 13,000 feet, this
change therefore making a saving in  first cost of $50,700.
This wooden pipe, in our experience, will be serviceable for a period
of at least twenty-five years and a dollar invested now, would, nt five
per cent compound Interest, be worth $3.39 at the expiration of twenty-
five years. Upon a basis of twenty-five years, therefore, the difference
in your investment for that 13,000 feet, between the cost of elghteen-incb
wooden pipe and twenty-four Inch cast iron pipe, would be equivalent to
$171,873. I, therefore, have no hesitation in recommending to you tlie
substitution Of an eighteen-inch wooden pipe as against a twenty-four
Inch cast iron pipe along the shores of Lake Shawatlans, and elsewhere',
as hereinafter suggested. ~
Your engineer has already considered the advisability of dividing his
twenty-four inch pipe into two pipes, each eighteen Inches in diameter,
crossing under the narrows. In case an elghteen-Inch pipe were used to
the point of passing under the narrows, either a single' eighteen-inch cast
Iron could be used at that point, or, if it were thought that Insurance
demanded t ii• • placing of two pipes across the narrows, two fourteen-lnch
pipes could he connected with the elghteen-Inch pipe to provide the
necessary safeguard. I would recommend the use of bul one pipe al this
point,  however.
After reaching the island, your engineer proposes to use a twenty-
four Inch cast Iron pipe' to a point opposite Montreal inn Inasmuch as
when a si'cond pipe is brought lee your city, as l will presently show, II Is
probable thai a separate pipe will be designed i" be carried ne Montreal
Hill ti-eiiii ihai which ii Is inii'iieie'ii neiw to be carried ie) Acropolis Hill,
1 recommend thai nothing larger than eighteen Inches In diameter he- now
laid down al any point in the city, Neil only is the- matter of flrsl economy a sufficient reason for recommending this reduction In size, bul
there are- questions relating to tbe possible elevation of reservoirs hereafter to be constructed In your city, which also justify this suggestion of
the construction of smaller pipe al the presenl time.
Relative Elcvntlon of Reservoirs
Very considerable money has already been expended In making an
excavation for a reservoir on the Acropolis. s<e far as my examination
reveals, it will be impossible to make this reservoir operate satisfactorily
in connection with any other reservoir which may hereafter be constructed in your city. The purpose is to have the floor of ihe- Acropolis
reservoir al elevation'288 and the overflow at elevation 800 above city
(latum. So far as I can determine, it will he Impossible to economically
construct a second reservoir whether on Acropolis Hill or on Montreal Hill,
that will have an overflow level at a higher elevation than 2Se', feeu, and the
probable floor level will be' nol above 270 feel above datum. For that
reason, li is probable that if the presenl scheme of utilizing the work
already done on Acropolis Hill for reservoir purposes is adhered to, thai
it will be found advisable in after years to divide ih<' city into at leasl
three service areas, in thai event, the territory ie> be served from tbe
Montreal Hii reservoir, when constructed, will be disconnected from the
territory mosi  conventeni  to be served from  tho present 'Acropolis mil

(Continued  from  Page Five)
reservoir site, and in such case the Montreal Hill reservoir would be supplied by a separate and independent pipe line leading directly thereunto.
Provision would be made by proper gates for throwing these two districts
together very quickly in case of fire, but normally they would be separate.
When the extreme western part of your city is so developed as to
require an additional reservoir on Acropolis Hill, that reservoir would of
necessity, because of the topography of the ground, be constructed at the
same level as the reservoir on .Montreal Hill, and would be supplied by
a conduit connecting with the .Montreal Hill reservoir, which would also
serve the territory through which it passed. In this way, the waters in
the Montreal Hill reservoir and the second Acropolis Hill reservoir would
rise and fall together, but the first reservoir upon Acropolis Hill would,
except in cases of fire or other emergency, serve its separate district,
which district  would no doubt be the central  business area of the city.
I have carefully examined the plans and specifications, which came
to you through the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway, for the construction of
a reservoir on Acropolis Hill. These plans called for a rectangular reservoir Ilo x 120 feet In the clear, having vertical walls lined with brick,
nnd a total depth of from  12 to  14  feet.
It will be impossible to construct this reservoir economically upon
the plans furnished. These plans are based upon the theory that the rock
remaining in place at the outer margins of the reservoir site, is firm and
stable, and in such condition that all it needs to render the reservoir
stable, is a concrete backing with the proposed brick lining. The rock is
not of the character contemplated by the designer of the reservoir, and
considerable change will have to be made in the plan in order to secure
a safe and economical structure. Moreover, it is well known that a
circular basin—when the nature of the ground permits—will hold more
in proportion to the cost of construction than will the rectangular. From
the shape of Acropolis Hill, and, from the topography of the neighborhood, good taste would demand that either a circular or elliptical basin
be constructed thereon, instead of a rectangular basin. It may prove
to be impossible to change to such shape now but as soon as your engi-
nee'r is enabled to make careful topography showing the exact condition,
shape, levels, etc., of the ground where this reservoir is intended to be
constructed, I will furnish you with plans and specifications for constructing a proper reservoir built in accordance with modern practice.
Future Use of n Certain Line
Your engineer has proposed a line lying along Eleventh Avenue, to
be built at some future time, which, for some time could be used in connection with the first Acropolis Hill reservoir, but which, at the time of
the construction of the second reservoir, would serve as the conduit leading directly to that reservoir in connection with the .Montreal Hill reservoir. For this reason, I would recommend the abandonment upon the
island, of all twenty-four inch cast iron pipe which it has been proposed
to use in your system and to substitute therefor, eighteen-inch pipe. This
recommendation is based upon the considerations of present economy
and of future usefulness. There would be 4,800 feet of twenty-four inch
pipe replaced by eighteen-inch pipe in the island, under this suggestion,
making a saving of at least $8,500.
Plan of Distribution System
The distribution system and tbe arrangement oi hydrants suggested
by your engineer upon the map furnished me, is in accordance with the
best modern practice and very little, if any, criticism could be made
thereon. There are one or two short sections of pipe where I have suggested a very slight change in diameter, but if the diameters suggested by
your engineer were taken exactly and precisely as he has designed them,
no real criticism would be justified. I consider this part of the system
to have been laid out with remarkable skill.
In a previous portion of my report, I have made reference to the
proposition to change the size pipe suggested by your engineer as part of
your main supply from Lake Woodworth inlo the city. I made special
mention of that part extending from near the head of Lake Shawat'ans
to the narrows because I had in mind a proposition to present to you
with reference to a joint use of pipe from Lake Woodworth to that point.
Unless this joint use of pipe hereinafter suggested be adopted, I most
unhesitatingly recommend the laying of eighteen-inch pipe throughout,
from the dam at Lake Woodworth to a point of general separation for
distribution purposes at Sixth Avenue and McBride Street. From McBride
Street on to Taylor Street, the pipe should be fourteen inches in diameter
only, leaving the distribution pipes leading therefrom the size heretofore
indicated by your engineer. The reason for this change of size from the
plan made by your engineer Is that the conduit leading from Lake Wood-
worth to the reservoir is, and always will be, also one of the service or
distribution pipes, and tnere would be no occasion to lead to the reservoir
direct, any part of the water which would naturally be diverted from the
pipe line leading thereto, by means of these lateral distribution pipes.
In case of fire, we would have the full flow from Lake Woodworth entering Into the large main leading down McBride Street and the full reserve
of Acropolis Reservoir No. 1 pouring down into and reinforcing the supply.in these mains, from the south. From the intersection of Sixth Avenue and Taylor Street the main leading to Acropolis Hill Reservoir No. 1
should, of course, remain eighteen Inches in size. Important latera's
branching from the Sixth Avenue main at Taylor Street would not only
Eerve as distribution mains, but when the draft demanded from the
water system by the city was less than the normal inflow from Lake Wood-
worth, these lateral mains would serve as conduits leading from the lake
to the reservoir and would continue to bring toward the reservoir their
proportionate amounts of water. By reason of these lateral mains, the
combined capacity of the system from the point of diversion at Sixth
Avenue and McBride over to the point of reunion at Sixth Avenue and
Taylor, would be such as to carry forward to Acropolis Hill a vastly
greater volume of water than the main conduit would bring into the city.
A   Proposed   Hydro-Electri<-   Development
When In your city, 1 found lhat you were generating your electricity
by the use of steam. The information which 1 received indicates that
your present peak load is about 60 K. \V. and that the maximum capacity
rrf the plant is 100 K. W. The best Information that I could obtain seemed
to Indicate thai at a very early day, at least. 200 K. VV. could be disposed
of ai a profitable rate, providing the cosl of generation was within economic lines; and that only a short period eif lime would elapse before the
demand would be at least 400 K. W. en- more, Owing to the fact that
a very Inexpensive dam will provide you with a constant discharge of
76 second feet, and thai your demand for municipal service will not
exceed nine second feet, it would appear thai you will have, running io
waste, from the south fork alone, 66 second feet, and that if the run-off
eif the north fork were added thereto, you would have 90 second feet
whirh i-ould be used profitably for the generation of power. I have,
therefore, given some consideration to the question of constructing the
first 13,000 feet of your pipe line leading to the city, of a sufficient size
to guarantee you the delivery of the maximum amount of water required
in the city, and also to convey a sufficient quantity of water to generate
a  considerable amount  of power.
After some consideration, It occurs to me that probably the use of
standard generators of about 500 K, W. capacity would be the most suitable and economic size for first installation, and I present herewith an
estimate of cost of installing an electric plant at tbe head of Lake Shawatlans, the pipe used for penstock therefor, being also used jointly from
Lake Woodworth to near the power house, as the supply conduit for the
service of the city.
You have already installed in your city an electric system using
three-phase, alternating current of 60 cycles and 2,200 volts. From your
main transmission, wires, customers are served through static transformers, stepping down to about 120 volts.
Whilst your Investment in this present plant, outside of your generator and the boiler and engine connected therewith, is not very heavy,
it appears that It would be advantageous in constructing a hydro-electric
plant to so construct the same that the current delivered therefrom would
be of the same voltage and the same number of cycles as.that now delivered from your steam plant.
By this means, during the early and testing out part of the operation
of your hydro-electric plant, and at any time when you should desire to
shut down the hydro-electric plant for any emergency, the present steam
plant could be started on notice,-and would supply a sufficient amount of
emergency current to carry you through the hours of repair necessarily
consumed at the hydro-electric station. My recommendation would,
therefore, be that your first installation be that of a generator wound for
ipproximately a 4,000 volts, Star connected. Whilst this generator would
be three-phase and 60 cycle, there would be led therefrom to tbe city,
four wires, three of these wires carrying current at approximately 4,000
volts, and the fourth wire coming from the center of the generator, would
be neutral. Service would be made from a 4,000 volt wire in connection
with the neutral. In this case, there would be offered to the static transformers precisely the same voltage which is now furnished by your 2,200
volt machine. •
This arrangement would give you the least cost of copper, reasonable line drop for the distance, would eliminate all step-up or step-down
transformers in the station house, and would permit the operator at tbe
plant to control the whole output. The only extra thing required being
duplicate bus-bars at the station.
Upon that theory of Installation, 1 estimate the following charges
rightly to be made against an installation having a norma] output of 500
K. W. with peak or overload output of 625 K. W., or about 835 horsepower:
Proportional part of cost of dam $    5,000.00

Grand   Tcital     J140.000.00
This would be your fixed investment and from this you would, after
the completion of the plant, be obligated to anticipate an annual expenditure in connection therewith as follows:
Interest  at  5%   on   $140,000    $  7,000.00
Sinking fund,  depreciation  and  upkeep       11,200.00

Wages of linemen and cost of linemen supplies      3.S50.00
Total  annual  expenditure    $31,400.00
As the result of the investment above described and the annual expenses above set out, you would have the following:
Normal generation  K.  W.  hours per annum 4,380,000
Probable demand at 30% or 150 K. W. hours constant output. .1,314,000
I estimate that the average sale price would not in any case be fixed
at less than ten Cents per K. W. hour, and 1 have been advised by good
authorities that it ought to be held at fifteen cents per K. W. hour for
this territory.
Basing our estimate, however, on the theory of an average sale price
of but ten cents per K. VV. hour, and on a constant delivery of but 150
K. W., we would have a gross revenue from this plant of $134,000. Deducting therefrom the fixed charges of $31,400 per annum, set forth
above, there is the opportunity of having a net revenue of approximately
$100,000  per annum from  this plant.
If your demand for output exceeds 150 K. W. and If your price is in
excess of ten cents, no higher fixed charge will result, but greater revenue
will be derived.
I have attempted to place the proportionate amount sold and the
salable price at the minimum figure probable.
Complete and detailed specifications for this electric proposition can
be prepared and furnished, if you determine on its construction.
The Water Scheme
The size or diameter of pipe which it would be necessary to build
from the dam at Lake Woodworth to near the power house at the head
of Lake Shawatlans, if used jointly by both the power house proposition
and for municipal supply would, be forty-five inches. If constructed
wholly for power purposes, a greater loss of head would be permissible
and a pipe of smaller diameter could be used, but as it is so much cheaper
to build one pipe of the combined capacity of two, than to build two separate lines, I deem it to be best to combine the two services in one pipe
line, down to the beginning of the penstock of the water wheels.
The total estimated cost of this combination pipe, together with the
surge pipe and a relief tank, and all incidentals to the cross or tee at
which the pipe leading to the city would separate from the larger pipe, is
the sum of $109,000.
The cost of an eighteen-inch machine banded pipe (which as I have
said, would be sufficient to supply the municipality for many years to
come), from the dam to the cross or tee leading from the penstock, would
be $22,000.
In the estimate that is to follow, believing that you will adopt as
sound financial economy the theory of constructing an eighteen-inch pipe
only, instead of a twenty-four inch pipe heretofore contemplated, I am
making my estimate In reference to the city water supply system upon
that basis only.

The Finnncial Outlook
From  the best Information  that I can  obtain,  the present  income
from your water supply is about $7,000 per year, and the increased income
during the first year, will probable be about $3,000, so that at the com-
oad will
pletion of the installation of the new water system, other than this moneys
from a general levy, made as a charge for the use of hydrants, the income
from the water system will be about $10 000. At sixty dol lars per
annum, as a charge for the 76 hydrants to be installed, there will be a
revenue to the city of $4,560, additional, so that the probable g 'oss revenue to the city from the water department, will be approximate!? $15,000
per annum, as against a revenue of at least $130,000 per annum, to be
to be derived from a general levy, made as a charge for the use of hydrants,
the income from the water system will be about $10,000. At sixjty dollars
per annum, as a charge for the 76 hydrants to be installed, the™ will be a
supplied and a revenue obtained, which will guarantee the earlly redemption of any debentures which may be issued for the construction of the
two utilities.
Concerning Possible Economy of Construction
Some discussion was bad with your engineers in relation to the
possibility of greatly reducing the cost of the construction oi the main
pipe line from Lake Woodworth to Lake Shawatlans, and th ? dam and
other incidental costs necessary to be met in connection wi th its construction, by reason of the revenues and charges which might' be derived
from the construction of a municipal sawmill which would /furnish the
staves for the continuous stave pipe and the timber for the)dam and a
great amount of other timber for municipal use. I
There is no question but that the cedar upon your oi-n grounds,
especially tye yellow cedar, would make staves equal to the West that can
be made anywhere in the world, and it would seem from a (casual study
of the proposition, that the erection of a municipal sawmill alnd its operation in connection with this whole matter, would result in very material
economy. This, however, is a matter which your municipal authorities
on the ground, must consider with reference to local cond.tilons and with
reference to which it is, therefore, impossible for me to more than direct
your attention. ,-
No estimate has been made of any cost of clearing anr 'timber on the
shores of Lake Woodworth, because that timber is of suc,h great value
that only the most wasteful and profligate management vciuld permit its
removal to be other than a source of income to the city. I have not
attempted to estimate the revenue to be derived therefron:, because I have
no accurate information as to the number of thousand fe.it iboard measure
to be affected by the change in lake level. I
In many reports, it is customary, after the finishing o(f the estimates,
to add some lump sum to cover the cost of probable incidentals occurring
in connection with the cost of construction. I have no. [added any such
sum to this estimate, from the fact that the prices used iin computing the
different amounts, are considerably higher than those iprlces which, in
our practice, we have found fully sufficient to cover tin J'ost of construction and all ordinary expenses. It is entirely possible, bo'lvevor, that there
are both climatic and labor conditions present with ytlyj, which will demand still further added amounts to be .made in oreegjr to Insure your
ability to construct these utilities and still have a safe/nmrgin of finance.
For this reason, 1 must leave to your Honorable Cou'.,„iI the wisdom of
determining just such an amount as it may be necessary to add.
In concluding this report, 1 would say: That there should be no
difficulty in disposing of sufficient debentures at a low rate of interest,
to cover the entire cost of constructing both of the utilities mentioned
above, and of assuring your citizens that practically no added burden
will' be imposed upon them by reason of direct taxa (ion, owing to the
large net revenue which it is reasonable to show will lie derived from the
general operation of the two utilities. -
Very respectfully,
Consulting Engineer.

I   Household Hints   !
* *
?.>*.J.>*<«:.*C. ** *** ***********
To drink sweet milk after eating
onions will purify the breath so that
no odor will remain.
Use a clean brick instead of the
ordinary iron stand, and you will
then retain the heat of the irons
much longer.
To frost a bathroom window,
make a very strong solution of Epsom salts and vinegar. Apply il
with a brush, and afterwards go
over it with some white varnish.
The discolorations caused by
striking matches can be removed by
rubbing with a slice of freshly cut
lemon, and then follow with a damp
cloth  dipped in  whiting.
Tumblers that have contained
milk should be rinsed in cold water
before being washed in hot. Putting the milky glass in hot water has
the effect of clouding the glass permanently.
To brighten up colors in faded
wool work wash the work in soda
and water and dry in the open air.
Faded colors become bright under
this process, as soda brings the
colors up.
To open windows easily that have
become stuck by paint or wet weather, brush over the inside of the
frames with ordinary black lead,
and they will slide up and down
without the slightest difficulty.
Cayenne pepper is excellent as a
means of ridding a cupboard of
mice. The floor should be gone
over carefully, and each hole stopped
up with a piece of rag dipped in
water, and then in cayenne pepper.
After every washing is done it is
a good plan to rub all the inside of
the copper, while still warm, with
soap rather thickly. You will not
find this wasted, because the next
washing day it makes the first water nice and soapy to start with, and
also keeps the copper beautifully
A little salt placed at the bottom
of the oil reservoir of a lamp will
cause it to burn with a brighter
light. When short of oil fill up
the reservoir with water till the oil
is all at the top. It will burn till
every drop of oi lis used up. This
is also a useful expedient In the
case of short wicks.
A new broom should be dipped in
scalding suds to toughen its bristles.
Shake ft free of water, and then
hang It up to dry. The same treatment every week or ten days will
keep the broom clean and make it
last far longer than Is usually the
case. Another point to be remembered is that a broom should never
be left to stand on Its bristles;
hang it up, or stand it on its handle.
Carpet cleaning is a duty which
should precede spring cleaning. Both
mats and carpets should, In turn, be
taken in hand. Among the various
methods which are given tor the
cleaning and freshening of a shabby
carpet is to wipe it over with a
cloth which has been wrung out of
warm water and vinegar In the proportion of a cupful of the latter to
a pailful of water. This process
must not be carried out, however,
until the carpet has been carefully
and assiduously brushed, and care
must be taken to let it dry thoroughly before it is walked over.

A beacon has been established on
the rock that dries, off Fairview,
Prince Rupert harbor, latitude N. 54
degrees, 17 minutes, 15 seconds;
longitude W. 130 degrees, 21 minutes   33 seconds.

A bottle containing a note signed
Jack McNitt, supposedly written by
one of the ill-fated passengers on
the Sechelt has been picked up by
two men. in the water near Brockton Point, Vancouver, The note bore
the words "Jack McNitt, about, to
die on Sechelt, tell my frlendH
good-bye." The name Sechelt could
hardly be deciphered, and the "1"
was missing. The bottle was white,
with a screw top and the note was
written on brown paper. The bottle
was found by James Howard and
John Tormey, employed by tbe
Brockton Point Athletic'Club.
The Sechelt foundered off Cape
Church, the eastern point of Beecher
Bay, on March 2 4 , when on a voyage from Victoria to Sooke, and
over twenty persons were lost. No
passenger list was kept, and it is
not known whether Jack McNitt was
among those who took passage. His
name was not mentioned among
those known to have been lost, but
there were several workmen bound
for the railroad construction camp
whose identity was not learned, included among the victims.

Mr. Peters said that it was clearly
set forth in the application for a renewal that it should be from June
14. The board could not grant such
a renewal from July 15. The board
was powerless in the matter.
Mr. Manson then pleaded that Mr.
Prudhomme's license should not be
refused on the renewal application.
It had been up for a long time. He
thought, that the commissioners
might well waive any objections.
Mr. Prudhomme, he could say, was
ready to be reasonable in every way
in seeking an amicable settlement of
the difficulty.
Charles T. Parttington applied for
a wholesale license to begin July 15,
which was granted on a unanimous
J. F. MacDonald asked for a
wholesale license to begin June 14.
W. E. Fisher, representing Mr.
MacDonald, explained that he had
previously had a license for the B. C.
Wholesale Liquor and Supply Company. He found that the license
asked by the. company was not In
order. Mr. MacDonald wished lo
j have the license for the sale of the
property he held which was fitted
up  for it.
c. j. Maynard's application tor a
leeeitii' license near the corner nt'
sixth avenue nnd Fulton street was
then considered.
The chairman said that the commissioners had gone into the matter
of the bottle licenses very carefully
with the city solicitor. He would
personally not be in favor of allowing any bottle licenses if it would interfere with the number of hotel
licenses. The solicitor gave his opinion that it would not, however.
Morevover,. the city of Victoria,
which had many more bar licenses
than was now allowed by law, had,
during the last fifteen months granted additional bottle licenses, which
showed that that was the way it
was interpreted there. He thought
that, a bottle license would be a convenience to those who desired to
have liquor for family use. If Victoria e-eiuld grant these licenses
without its being considered as ef
fectlng the hotel licenses he thought
Prince Rupert should be able to do
the same.

been asked to appear for certain citizens to oppose the issue of any bottle licenses. He contended that It
was clear by the statute that the
bottle license was regarded as a retail liquor license just as a bar license was. The population of the
city was not sufficient to usarrant
any further retail licenses under the
He argued also that the act had
not been complied with in the applications, In certain cases the scale
of the drawing was not correct. All
the owners were not shown. In
cases the agents signed for the property which was not according to the
statute. In this connection he instanced the case of the bank managers signing for the bank.
The chairman said that the act
had been gone into very carefully by
the board with Mr. Peters. What
had actuated the commissioners in
coming to the conclusion they did
was that Victoria had been granting
the licenses on the basis suggested.
Commissioner Merryfield asked
who  Mr.   Manson  appeared  for.
Mr. .Manson said he appeared on
bis own behalf as well as for others
whose names he did not care to divulge.
Mr. Peters said he had not given
a written opinion. He further
pointed out that the bar licenses
were Intended in the act lo be retail
licenses in the proper sense of the
word. It was true thai within the
meaning of a certain section the bottle licenses were Included as retail
licenses but he felt that that must
be Interpreted as being intended as
applying only within the meaning of
that particular see-tion.
The license was allowed on a
unanimous vote of the commissioners.
On the application of .1. A. Smith
for a bottle license being brought up
Commissioner Smith asked to have
leave to take no part In the proceedings owing to the fact of the
relationship between himself and
the applicant.
Mr. Manson said he did not wish
to raise any objection to tbe application of Mr. Smith. He was opposed to the bottle licenses.
The license was granted.
In the case of Austin M. Brown's
application for a bottle license no
affidavit accompanied the application.
The license was refused on a
unanimous vote.
The court then adjourned until
July  14.
