The   British   Columbia   Record   Is   the  official organ of The Architectural Institute of British Columbia, federated with  The   Royal    Architectural    Institute   of  Canada,   and   The  Engineering &  Technical Institute of British Columbia, and  ss such is used by them as the medium  through which to make their official an-  ■ounceinents   to   the  general   public.  1   By  such  selection  the British  Colum-  bla  Record   is   no   wise   pledged   to   editorial   support   of   any   policy   advanced  by these societies, but maintains an absolutely  independent  position'on  all   matters subject to editorial opinion.  The McAllister mine on the north  fork of Carpenter creek, has been reopened and the manager reports that  a shoot of clean silver sulphide ore  has been uncovered on tlie third level.  It is over 12 inches wide at the floor  and opens fan-wise as it rises.  The Taylor Engineering company is  .planning the erection of a 3,000-Lon  ore bunker at the wharf at Alice Arm  to facilitate shipping. The railway  is transporting 150 tons of ore daily  from the, Dolly Varden mines to tide  water.  The Evening Star and. Nugget  mines located on Dayton creek seven  miles from Slocan city, are being operated again. A shipment of ore made  from the'Evening Star two years ago  ran 347 ounces of silver and $23 in  gold to the ton.

NOW  IT'S THE "RENT  HOG."  Vancouver is not the only Canadian  or American city that views the prospect of having soon to deal with,.that  "Well-known specimen of profiteer who  is lately coming into unusual prominence, the "rent hog." In New York,  Chicago and Cleveland in the east,  and Seattle and Los Angeles in the  "west, the actions of the "rent hog"  are proving an active cause of agitation against the high cost of living,  and in several of these cities the  "rent hog" is coming in for attack in  official quarters with a prospect of  having his wings clipped by a municipal ordinance.  An interesting sidelight on the situation in Cleveland is presented by  the city rent agent of that city who  says he believes "the unfair increases  will be stopped within a year," but  adds: "It is the opinion of the real  •estate .board* that the .'shortage} of  houses and apartment will increase,  this fall and winter; and the-statement  has also been made here that there is  no relief in sight for three years."  The city councils and special grand  juries of several eastern cities have  decided to investigate the prices of  lumber and other building materials,  while in Cleveland a bill is being prepared now for presentation to the  state legislature" limiting the gross income from tenements to 15 per cent,  and the net income .6*12 per cent.  The; real solution of the present  high rent situation is touched by the  statement of the Cleveland city rent  agent, previously quoted. More, houses  • and apartments, constructed as quickly as possible and irrespective of whatever disadvantages may apply, to the  particular field, will check a possible  building famine and put.a damper on  excessive rents. The situation' that  confronts most of the large eastern  and Pacific coast cities is not unlike  tbe outlook in Vancouver. And ' of  Vancouver this fact is known—as the  fall and winter advance the pressure  here for house accommodations will  he greater than any other city in  western Canada of which any information is available. It behooves builders and investors to remember this.  Many more homes and apartments are  needed in every desirable section of  the city—and needed right now.  >•_•••••■•• UwB*   .. 127,000  .. ........130.000   $8,000   ....$7,500  ..;......V:..*..;..$9;074'   ......$6000  ............... -$6,800     $13,000   .$8,000   $27,500     $10,500  ...............  $6,000   ....$15,000   .:.......   $5800   .$5,200   .......;..$n,000      $5,S00       $12,000  ...; .....$5,000      $6,600      $10,000   $34,500    $10,000      $5,000  ...: .....;.$S,0U0  .....: ..$300,000  MINING  C.

CANADA'S LARGEST  ENGINEERING PROJECT  Hydro-Electric Power Commission Carrying on  Wonderful Power Development Work  at Niagara Falls—A Second  Panama Canal  Operating the largest shovels in  the world, and reversing the flow of  a river, the Hydro Electric Power  Commission of. Ontario is carrying  on an enormous engineering project  at'Niagara Falls, practically without the use of steam,  There are many startling phases to  this work, which is the largest  engineering feat attempted In the  -.omihion'O- Canada, and the biggest  engineering job " at present being  carried on in the North American  continent.  In order to get water to the new  power house which will be erected  just- above Queenston, the Commission will utilize four and a quarter    miles    of    the   "Wei land    Kiver  men present a striking picture. The  weary householder painfully feeding  the furnace, shovel by shovel, from  the ton or two o'f coal, his -winter's  supply, will marvel at the enormity  of the electric shovels which pick'  up from eight to ten tons of  material, lift it 70 feet into the air  and deposit it into w-aiting cars, all  within the short space of 40  seconds.  Trains, hauled by electric Iocomo-  tiyes, convey the mud and clay to  the dump at St. David's. The boulders and .rock from the canal are  borne away to the stone crusher on  the cliff above Queenston, and converted into material for roadways,  rai'road roadbed and riprap which  v ill   line   the   shores   of   the   canaL  '■/ HYDRO  ELECTRIC  DEVELOPMENT  WORK at  NIAGARA  fcJ*fc*i.S3il  | e-lGCt'riC T«»t*i BE-SO1 LCWDED""]""  causing this sluggish, stream to flow  backward and to take, water from  the Niagara River instead of emptying vinto it above the Falls. Con-  . necting With the "Welland River is  a power, canal, stretching from  Queenston and encircling the city of  Niagara Falls, Ont., which .will be  eight and a quarter miles long when  completed.  The     original     survey     for     the  Niagara' development  was   made  in*  1914, and the construction work be-  gun   in    May,    1917.      The   commission  expects  to have  the new- plant  •■■In working order in 1922.    War conditions ". handicapped   the   engineers,  but this year's operations were begun  on a*gigantic scale.    A trip over the  right   of   way   will   impress   the   observer- with   the   vast   scope   of   the  undertaking which,  in its completed  state,  will  cost approximately   $27,-  000,000.00.  Two miles above th© brink *of  Niagara Falls a steam dredge is  gnawing away at the channel of the  Welland River, removing in generous  chunks-th. river bottom and a portion or.Hog Island, which guards the  entrance to this historic creek. The  lone dredge and its attendant tugs  are the only pieces of-equipment engaged on the entire Niagara development which are not owned by the  Hydro-Electric Power Commission.  They, with six or seven switch  engines, are the only apparatus in  use on the development which require   steam   in   their  operation.  Even the drills employed on the  rock deposits of the canal right of  way are operated by air, electrically  compressed. A mile or two inland a  huge clamshell swung from an  aerial cableway, drops into the river  and then emerges, bringing with it  generous bites from the river bottom, which are deposited on the  river bank at the foot of the tower  from where the operator directs the  activities of the clamshell. Deposits  of earth and clay along the north  bank of the river reveal the effectiveness of the clamshell in this particular portion of the development.  A short ride from Niagara Falls  over new roadways built by the  commission from crushed limestone  removed from its right of way,  brings one to the canal proper,  where the activities of huge electric  shovels, electric trains and gangs of  The stone crusher, which has at  capacity of ,4,000 cubic^-ards, is well  worth a visit. The rocks from the  excavations are cast into a trough  opening into gigantic steel jaws  which grind and munch,,jbreaking  the largest pieces into smaller bits  that are carried away on a belt con-  veyori A series of crushers reduce  the rocks, to a;form where they may  be utilized for building purposes and  •stored for future use.    ' "    * *V  Fifty-five miles of railway, all electrified, and tapping five trunk  lines,  are   required ;  in    the    construction  work  on  the  development.     On  this  railway the commission has in operation  more  electric  locomotives  than  any  railway system   in  Canada.     At  present 2,000  men are  employed  on  the big job.    These men are housed  and fed by the commission.    A surgeon,  an  ambulance and a  hospital  maintained by the commission are at  the disposal of the employees in case  of   accident.     The   adoption   of   the  newest safety devices has minimized  the   danger   of   accident   on   the   development,  and  the commission  has  devoted a great deal of time to safety  first   propaganda   in   order   to   safeguard the men^'in its employ.    About  2,500   acres,   or   50   per   cent,   of  the  lands   acquired   by   the   commission  for its right of way, have been converted  into farms, and  the  produce  from   the   farms  is sold   to   the   employees of the commission.   The com- •  mission maintains its own telephone  system   on   the   development,   and   it  has connections throughout the province.     Garages,   machine  shops  and  office buildings line the right of way.  By establishing its power house at  Queenston the Hydro-Electric Power  Commission  is  enabled   to   take  advantage of the full drop of both Niagara Falls and   the  Gorge,  a  total  drop  of  305   feet,   affording  100   per  cent,   more   electric  power  from   the  same amount of water.    The largest  electric   units   in   the   worl-!. ■'5 5.00 0  horsepower   generators,   will   be   installed   in   the  power  house,   to   produce electrical energy for d.i'-tribution  throughout the  Province"*'of Ontario.  This great work  is  a striking  example of the big vision and initiative  of Sir Adam Beck, under whose  direction the commission carries on its  functions.     This work  is  one which  gives    the    people    of    Ontario    just  cause for pride in achievement.  Blue Prints Whilst You Wait  DRAPTIlfO AXE EUfES  Paper.
