Jefoson Wi, U.S.A.  All Guaranteed Waterproof  THE  The  -Fraser   Valley   during   the  past year ..has been infested  with  the tramp nuisanoe to such an extent that it has .'almost become unbearable.' The city   of Vancouver  durng  the  recent cold spelt    m  that city had an excess -  numfber  it is reported; of .'these 'boes huddled up in the .east end of the town  A   groat  inany.. of   these   fellows  arc no doubt looking for work but  if a   job  hove in flight, there are  in  many   cases  no .'desire' to vget  busy  and'earn.a   decent      day's  wage.   They appear to     be     able  to live without,it. Those parasites  are becoming so numerous     that  strnuouB. efforts will have to be  ra&orted   to   ip-* order  to   rid   the  Valley of these; gentlemen of leisure,- without any means. The city  of   Vancouver "'Have  realized  this,  and recently the magistrate sent  one of these men* to New Westminster,' for what some men would call  a-  very minor-'offence.  Since Constable, Black has been  appointed for this town, last summer ,'d remarkable 'change has  been notice'd-^poes . have been on  the wane and] when (any appear  they have 'been given to understand-that they aire not wanted,  and they\havefhad in many cases  .    ..-������'��������������� t.Vln. .'fitno wliilfi  GOOD   ADVICE   GIVEN  Mr.   Fagan,   Provincial   Medical  Health Officer, visited the city on  Friday,, BayB  the, Chilliwack Progress, that  he might report personally and officially on the progress :beiing   made   by   the vlocai  health officers towards the-stamping out of the infectious diseases  prevailing throughout the district  His work while here was confined  to a   conference with the members  of the council and the. board      of  health and the visiting of the Chin  ese quarters and some few cases of  supposes smallpox. 'The result of  the  visit  was  satisfactory  to   all  concerned.   It   showed   that      the  smallpox  scare   was  abating   and  that the local health officers were  doing .all in their power to   isolate  :he few  cases reported;  that the  disease was of a   very mild form  while possibly contagious, was  not of ia character to disturb the  equilibrium of the country.  "The stamping out of small-pox  or any other contagious disease, is  almost entirely in the hands o"f the  people"1 said  the-Provincial Medical Health, officer.   "If the .people  want  a   clean  .bill   of   health   reported they  must do  all in then  power to help the medical officers.  This can be done by reporting any  EER STOR1  and they ,havejhad in many cases b������ in������ectiou3 disease known to  a   very  uncomfortable; -time while 1^ ^^ ^^ mugt oe isolat_  MCPHEE & KERR  NOVA SCOTIA WATER POWERS  W   G. Yorst'on, C. E.  The province of Nova Scotia has  no large rivers and the watersheds  nwh?ch water may be^ collecte  are comparatively .small  Six hun  dred square miles is about the area  of the largest watershed in     the  province that the writer ta aware  or.nd ..he average watershed area  or' streams is probably not mora  tnan one-third that amount. This  ���������ia compensated for to some extent,  however, toy the fact that many  ofour streams have a rapid de  scent and offer fairly high heads  the   utilization of  the  water   ]  i������n the province there are������Owe������  t0 be  found capable of  develop  Lent under heads of from 100 to  Too  feet,   although  in  every  e  tvheresuch   high   head  exists   the  watershed is limited in extent  may   say   in this  connection  that  I   have   investigated  one   water-  power   having   about   ten   .quar*  miles'of  watershed which is   veil  Crth development, as there is a  total  fall   of  275  Jeet  in   a    i  tie  over two miles, as well as practical  ly unlimited opportunities for .tor-  age of water.on the watershed  In all parte of the province there  are water-powers which are well  worth development and which  have not ������o far received attention  On others of our streams the de--  velopmentiB fairly well advanced  and^ome few of our rivers Particularly the Mersey and St crux  are "'at   present   generating quite  f ������r r.nwer    At the same  an amount of power.   *��������� -  t me no one 01 our streams has the  development of its full Power jom  pleted, arid in general.,it is tine  that-s^ far as our power developments have been on those streams  which have the greatest amount of  lakes, and practically nothing has  been done in the way of creating  storage artificially, in orderr ;to  improve the powers on sti earns  "^ving -a   deficiency  of     natural  v^orvoirs.  It is  most unfortunate  that, so  far no  data as to stream flow in  theprovince of Nova Scotia i<s ob-  tafnabTe.   The only  information to  be had  bear'.ngon the subject    is  the rainfall records taken at * few  places  in  the province.   It is ,not  often that the rainfall records for  the immediate  locality   - of      the  stream are to be  gotten, .and re-  i course must be had to records tor  1 other places, distant sometimes over a   hundred miles.   It is evident  that calculation based on such data must  be after all .only an approximation the accuracy of whicl}  will depend  in large measure  on  the   judgment   and  experience   of  the orie who is making them.  At this data so little demand for  water-power has been in evidence  that all the facts in connection with  some of the best Nova Scotiawa.tr  powers are not  fully   known.   IUs  found that, as a   rule the majoruy  of our large factories are located  in the large centres of population,  andfor many of the. different factories there rea considerations that  make   this   imperative.   At the  same time there are very many us-  ,3 ib which our scattered .powers  could be put, of which the more  vigorous pro-ecution ox cii ��������� nv.ner-  algdeveloi)ment is only one. Besides very many of our powers are.  sufficiently large to warrant the  expense of quite lengthy tians-  miscion in order to utilize the pow-  Tat some more convenient point  where manufacturing can be more  economically   carried   on.  m, our ..midst'rlFines have where  possiyble^.-beenliharided    out     to  them, Mr. Black-focussing his X  Rays on  the.ir money-bag.to  ascertain the extent of the wad.   He  appears very successful-along this  ine. -'    ';  This,; week two men appeared  before L. R. Authier and J. J.; McPhee. for stealing from, J. ,w-  Stewards' commissary, and then  trying to sell them around to.wn.  After giving both the men a fair  hearing, and 'that it might prove  a deterrent to further acts of  .his kind by the men and as example of how such work is tolerated around Abbotsford, a sentence of six months was given each  one. They will be taken to New  Westminster by Constable Black  who went to the coast on Thursday- evening.    SOLD  OUT BUSINESS  Mr. W. Lyle has  sold out     his  '���������very and feed business to Mr. Jas  Geary of Vancouver, who will take  -jossession in a   few days now.  L Mr. Lyle intends to take a   trip  home to old Ireland, where, he in-  -ends to  remain for -a   couple of  months visiting.   On his return to  Abbotsford, for he is  still to remain a   citizen of Abbotsford, he  ntends building on Gladys Street  and opening up business again in  i   totally different line.  Mr. Lyle's friends, and they nre  'egion, will wish him a mosthap-  ���������iy and pleasant trip and safe return. He will probably go early  riext month.  Messrs G.- H. Kerr and Mr. M.L.  McPhee left for the coast on Thurs  day evening and expect to.return  ;-.o-day. ���������;:     "  Mr. J. A. Blair of Vancouver  .,v-as around shaking hands with  /riencls in Abbotsford on Thursday  Although a citizen of the : big  city at the coast, -he.'has a warm  feeling for the: old town, where he  was one of the leading spirits for  io many years.  them. These oases must oe isolated by quarantining^.the houses in  which the. disease has. beerir found.  it may also be Ja matter of a  few-.days until the quarantine i������  lifted. Should the people conceal  any known cases of smallpox from  the medical health authorities, or  if it is allowed to run, it might take  five.���������years before it ran the' whole  course - of the gamut. The mJVe  the public conceals it, the longer  it takes, the officers ,to stamp out  the disease and consequently the  more experisive.it becomes to the  taxpayer. When it is a case 6*1  dollars and cents, 'and 'when the  iiVHM of the people.are endangered  it ibejcdmes a personal matter,  with everyone to report every  known eaBe of disease.
