RE-OPEN  CEMENT PLANT
AT BAMBERTON SOON
VICTORIA—With the intention of
operating the Bamberton Cement
Works at full capacity at the beginning of the New Year, ithe B. C.
Cement Company has started a aum-
ber of men at work on overhauling the
machinery and equipment of the big
plant.
The works have not been in opera-
'tfon for some years, and extensive
inspection and adjustment work will
be necessary. When running steadily the plant gives work to a large
number of men. The plant was built
by the Associated Cement Company,
a British concern, in 1913, being one
of the largest manufacturing plants
on Vancouver Island.
/The two years following the opening the plant were marked1 by
great building activity in the Province and the Bamberton works
produced large quantities • of high
grade cement. ,
Shortly after the outbreak of'the
war the plant was closed down and
has been idle.. Some months ago
an amalgamation of the associated
interests here with ithe Vancouver
Portland Cement Co. was completed,
thus bringing the Todd Inlet and
plants   under   one   man

When  the rafters were put up in many places, it was the custom of some rural  celebrity to walk the ridge pole erect  with a bottle of v/ater balanced on his  head, merely to show his sense of balance and daring. Thero was also generally an aftermath with afiti-prohibi-  tion features which concluded many  of the old-time barn-raising.

That the  plain and homely customs of pioneer  days ha*ve a charm even now was  shown recently near Abbotsford when  nearly fifty men—mostly neighboring  farmers accepted the' invitation*of a  well known returned soldier farmer to  "raise" the'frame of, a barn he was  erecting. The affair passed off very  successfully and the frame, of the  barn was put up In record time.  In pioneer days barn raisings were  frequent and* delightful affairs. The  timbers of ...the barn were, made, from  native1 trees/ In,'the real early days  .they were hewn, but in-later and" more  progressive days the portable 'saw mill  made it easier to get out the dimension stuff. The timbers were cut and  mortised and the ""but;" or section of  the frame was put together in orderly  fashion and placed ready for the raising. . There were no derricks then; no  long,engines topnTl the heavy timbers  into place. Men lifted them by sheer  strength/held themin place with long  pike poles while a^e men clambered-  up the frame, helped swing the, connecting timbers into place and drive  the wooden pins that held the frame  together. ...   ...-. ,f   .*  There was no pay for the work done  at a barn raising, «ave the chicken  dinner at noon .and t"he ample stores  of food served at the -supper that, came  when the frame was up. The day and  the work were given as the contribution to community development. Raisings were picnic ^affairs, despite the  heavy and at .times dangerous work,  but the "entire neighborhood turned  —; :  a  In addition to the • $100,000 home  building program, a $25,000 dock, the^  appropriation for which has been  made by. the Dominion Government,  is soon to be under way, the site for  the same having been designed by  Senator J. D. Taylor, Mr. F. B. Stacey  Federal M. P. from loco and others.  All the work will be urged to completion by both government officials and  the Independent Oil Company.
