QUADRA ON  THRROCKS  WIND DOES  MUCH DAMAGE  _ Considerable damage was done    in  this city this  morning, by the strong  Winds.   Tbe  windows of- Messrs.

The steamer had-stopped  to land Colonel Anderson-, chief engineer of the department of marine and  fisheries, and Captain. James Gaudin,'  local agent of the department, who  we're bound ^to the West coast- to-locate a site for a new lighthouse in  the, neighborhood of Kyuquot,* and to  inspect the lights and aids to navigation.  When the Quadra's engines      were  slopped oil the Race Rocks light, and  a boat  was   lowered  from   the davits  for the     two officials  to go ashore,  the current, running swift as the tide  ebbed,   carried  the  vessel   in  to   the  reefs,  which abound northeast of the  island   upon  which  the lighthouse al  the entrance to Royal Roads is kpiii.  Before Colonel Anderson and Captain  Gaudin    had left the steamer's side  she struck and brought up with      a  shock  that made the steel hull tremble.   She i was hard  and fast.

TO-MORROW THE VOTE  bWILL TELL THE STORY  Every man or woman, who is.a  ���������qualified e'eclor should cast his or  her ballot for or against the Electric  Light By-law. In order that every  voter might hitvc all possible information relative lo the cost of installation and anticipated revenue, tiie  t        *-  Ledger h'as_coiiected and printed ai1  in<'ormn,tion which  has  seemed  in any  way to have a bearing on the question  at issue-   With the report of (the meet  ing last night     which appears Mi toj-  day's issue the ,last obtainable information will have  been given out,  for  tomorrow    decides the matter.   It is  not the province af a newspaper to do  otherwise tliat print the information  obtainable.    The  question  of'.'how  to  v,ote    is1     one  that  each   individual  must decide  for himself.   If the majority of the voters are satisfied that  the' time has come for  the installation  of an electric lig-ht system, they  will     vote  the  debenture  issue.    If  not,   it  will be  voted   down.    Every  voter should and no doubt will, consider the question carefully aad vote  accordingly.  Section 77  of the Municipal  Clauses says:  "If any  by-law  which   requires the  assent,  of the electors is  rejected by  them,   no other  by-law  for  the same  purpose,    shall be submitted to  the  electors during,the same year, unless  at  loast  one-fifteenth   in   nunvher   of  the  electors   who  are. qualified      to  vote     on the by-law petition       the  Council,  at  au  interval  of  not  less  than sixty days after  the  defeat   of  the by-law, and request that il may  be again submitted   to  the  rate-payers, binding themselves, in  such manner as      the Council may decide and  approve of,  to defray the  cost       of  placing the by-law again before   the  electors,  in  the event  of   it not  receiving  the necessary assent  to     become law."  Therefore if live present by-law is  not ratified there can jrot be another  election on the subject this year except as above provided, whicii is  hardly likely to occur.

ELECTRICIANS ADDRESS  MEETING OF CITIZEIS^  Give Interesting Information at Public Meeting Regarding Electric Light-Probable Cost of Installing and Operating Plant  9-io;:.    ���������  "y '-���������  W   ,.~  111  The      meeting     held in the opera  house last evening was'not  well  attended,     but those present  had   thc  pleasure of hearing, thoroughly interesting   addresses  by   the  electricians.  Mayor Coburn, in opening the proceedings, slated thai the Council  were fortunate enough to have present three experienced men who would  address the meeting on the cost, of  installation, cost of operating, and  (he probable revenue that would    be  \ery  capable  man  to   investigate   a  water   p^wr-r   proposition.    Thesamc  number  of men that would be required   to  operate  a steam   plant   would  have to be employed in a water power plant to adequately run the same  With  the exception of  the cost      of  fuel,   the cost  of  operating a water-  power  would  be as great as  that of  operating a steam  pnwer plant.  Mr.  Nimino,  from  (he body of   the  hall,  objected  that the water power.  M/       vt/        M**-        M-'  -7*  X  s������  ?���������?

The   St.      Paul   was  on   its   is-i.il  course and the weather was  clear until      Point -Corda   was   appro   .led.  when  the steamer  ran  into   theiop;.

Captain   "tan-  dall sa.id  there  was no panic or un  usual confusion.  It will Tie  remembered    by  all      voting    on   lhc   Electric  light   by-law   tomorrow   that  S .the Mayor and ���������Aldermen have *  c   pledged themselves, if the vote  )   carries,   TO    INVESTIGATE  *'  THOROUGHLY THE    WAT-  i    ER   POWER   QUESTION.   If  found sufficient,  only a  water  pewer plant will  l.c installed.  As     al least a majority of  the     council  believe ��������� si ror.fjy  that  a waler  sjs.tem  can    be  installed   successfully,   a   genuine,   effort to do so will     he  made  before  consenting   ta   a  S'leam   plant.  Everybody seems to want  electric light. A majority  think water can be secured. If  it can be, water only will be  used. Of this the council  must judge if lho by-law carries.  7T-  dorhod hvm   an electric plant.   The | which it was suggested could be pro-  gentlemen     present, Mr. Hinlon,  superintendent      of the H.'jiton  Electrical Company,  Mr. Marshall, for some  tears superintendent of the Kamloops-  electric plant, and     Mr. M. Hutchin-  ���������soli, the  city electrician of Victoria,  would be pleased lo answer any questions  put them  by     anybody in  the  hall.       His ,   Worship wished  to'-'say  that the     Council   were strongly   in  favor     of installing  a water power  I lant  if  sufficient water  power c,;wld  be found   to operate   the same.  After  expressing  regret   that   the   mce"ldi]g  was not better attended, Mr. Coburn  introduced Mr.   Marshall.    This  gentleman,   after  a few   prel'minary   remarks,     said   i hc would read  a few  statistics  froni   tho  balance sheet   of  the     Kamloops     electric plant.     A  plant similar to the one of that city,  he calculated, would meet the rcc,ju-:������-e  mcnls   of  Ladysmith,   tbe  population  of  the two cities being about       thc  same.  -   The Kamloops  plant is of   lr20 kilowatt power,   and  is capable   of supplying' 2,500   lG-candlc  power   lights  at one lime,   ,11c considered  the Ladysinith people could install a steam  plant here at  the cost of $18,000  to  ���������UO.'OOO.    Hc  would  advise that the  compound  condensing  engines'   be used,  as  they would  mean a saving   of  25   per cent.    The cost, of operating  the  Kamloops   plant  in 1901       was  $8,(511,      this  including cist of fuel,  engineer's and   fireman's  wages,  and  maintenance of  the plant.    The revenue derived was .f 11,090, and ,thus a  pr. .fit of ?3,000  was obtained.     The  cost of operating a similar plant  in  Ladysmith     would, be   lie  thought,  considerably less, for he was Unformed   that here fuel   could   l;e_  procured  at V2.00   per  ton,  whereas in  Kamloops      the price  ot  fuel  was   $('.-10.  Three men only would be required to  run  the    plant,    'lhe  chief  engineer  and superintendent,  whose wage,  he  estimated, would Le "i"125 per month,  second engineer,  5>80 pel   month;  fire-,  man, -fOS per  month,   'flic amount of  dollais lo   .turn   McLeod    into Bush  Creek."  Mr. Nimmo said according to public print there t had been a division in  the Council on this same subject.  Two of Uie aldermen had said they  would not vote for a steam power  plant. He thought, considering that  sonic of the.aldermen were in favor  of investigating the water power propositi oil * that the matter should have  been looked intt< and a report"subimit-  led to the meeting. The mayor replied  that he' was net alone, the aldermen  had acted with him. and had unanimously agreed to let the engineer go  The aldermen were still in fa-  hack  _Ui_  .ii^-ii/.  -x?���������:k  ~7tt  RAILWAY COMPANIES CRASH  Midway, B.C., Oct. 5.���������The Canadian Pacific and Great Northern  have come to a clash in this district.    >  Late  last  Saturday aftern^bii      a  Canadian      Pacific  worktrain  pulled  into this place  with a large gang of  men  aboard.    The  workmen   proceeded  to a spot on the V.V. & N.,.    in  the neighborhood  of Jackson's  ranch  about f������ cr miles -from-Midway. There  they  built a high ,fence  of heavy tim  bers   right   across   the   right-of-way.  Notices  were also   posted  prohibit'iie:  trespassing under penally  of prosecution.  This   morning   the  graders  employed  by   the   V.V.  &  N.  arrived,  tore  down  lhe fences,   unci  proceeded with  the  work of erasing  the lots  claimed by the Canadian Pacific.  Nothing further had (developed at  noon, but it is expected that there  will be lively times within the next  couple of days.  CITY OF TRAVERSE FINED  Chicago,  Ills., Oct.  fi���������A   fine       of  $500   was      imposed   yesterday  upon  the   floating  pool-room,   the steamer  City  of Traverse, by Win.  Pcnn Nix-  P'li,   a collector of  the  port,  because  owners of  the vessel  failed to  register a transfer ot  the vessel.  The fine   heavy.   It   was necessary  to have  J "Was paid under protest.  these wages,   tog-ether  with   the amount of   fuel  and   incidental   ex; eases  would  total about $1-10  per  month,  ���������jo,2J0   per  year.      Calculating   that  2,000 lights, were installed in       the  town, the cost of each being  10 cents  per month,  a revenue of ISOO       per  month,  or  $9,000   per  year  would be  derived, making the total $5,100 per  year above running expenses.   Deduct  ing from   this'the interest on  debentures and sinking fund,   the  sum of  $2,320  per      year could  be cleared.  This estimate,   Mr. (Marshall declared,  was made on a liberal basisi  Referring-,    to     water power,  the  speaker said .it was .better and cheaper  than steam  providing  the cost of  d3veloping  the . water  power  did not  exceed jthc cost of fuel.   He remarked  that the assessment on this city was  not large, and tbe council, h?.  understood, had passed a by-law 'to be sub  milted  to   the people lo  raise     the  sum of $20,000.  It would  be utterly  impossible   lo   install   a'water   power  plant,  for  this  sum.    The cost   would  Le at least $10,000.  Mr.     Marshall  was asked if  three  men  only   were  employed   to   run  the  Kamloops plant.   He  replied   that the.  j lant  of  that city   was  operated   by  that number of  men.  The city  clerk  did   the  book-keeping,  and   (he  light,  was   supplied   by   the  meter  system.  A rebate      was  allowed   if the   rales  were  paid   before   the   10th  of       thc  month, and  this did away  with  the.  necessity  of employing  a man   lo  do  the collecting.  In  answer     (0  a question by   Aid.  Beveridgc  as to whether  he considered  a steam   plant  could   be  installed  in  Ladysmith  for $20,000,   Mr.  Marshall remarked  that  he would like to  have  the contract  for   installing   one  at     that  amount.    Uc  said  a water  power plant  would  be  far more   expansive   to   install.    To   begin   with,  the wheel would cost as much as the  cngi<-,rs, land then the cost of surveying and     engineering would be very  a  cuiod from the creek running at the  back of the city had not been properly      investigated.    The engineer cm-  j-loyed by the city, he contended, had  merely   taken   a look  at  Bush   Creek  and had not looked into  the matter  al all  thoroughly.  , Mayor Coburn remarked  that when  Col. Tracy saw  the amount  of water flow ing     in Bush creek was      so  small,   he deemed   it  useless  to put  the city     to the expense of making  further investigations.  ,Mr.  Nimmo asked   the  mayor if he  did  not  think  it was  his  duty       to  have informed the engineer that there  was  water besides that flowing    in  Bush creelc.  Mayi,'r���������Mr. Nimmo, we were not  aware that there was more water at,  the time Col. Tracy was here. We  sent out with thc engineer two'.men  who, we thought, knew the country  far better than anybody else here,  .Messrs. Blair and Callendar. We  ceilaiiily gave all tl* informal ion we  bad at  the time.''  Mr.   Nimino���������"How is it,  then, Mr.  Mayor,   that   Aid.   Blair   is noi  satisfied      with .the report, and is of the  opinion  that   waler     power  can  be  procured?"  His Worship replied that this had  developed since the engineer had left.  At the tLiutj he was here, the icouucil  iviiew nothing whate\er ol McL-od  Creels but at the same I line the  council, he belie\ed, had fully in leaded iiL.-estigaung tfurther the 'possibili-  s.es  of  procuring  a water  system.  Mr.  Nimmo  thought a statement of  Lhc in*, osligation should   be submittal ljj the public befoie the'day ior  lotiug.   'lhe   investigation,   he ��������� urged,  ought to ha\e been 'made beiore the  [Hidtic   meeting.  ml. Conurn said he wished to can had to use steam power in ihe dry  Mr. Nimmo s attention to the fact season, there Icing insufficient vater  ihut tiu council had employed thc best I then to operate the plant. The speak-  Liigui'.cr that could be lound, and ! er considered il-unfair to attack ihe  mat ho had turned tbe proposition! j mayor because hc had not made a  down.

'  Mr.  Nimmo   was  proceeding    with  his argument when Mr. {-H. Carroll interposed,   saying the citizens    were  present to' hear addresses on electric  light by the electricians present. Mr.  Ninmio's question could be discussed  at any, time, and he thought his ar-'  gumenl should now be dropped.  Col.  Tracey's report,    s published  in  The Ledger some time since, was  then  read,      after  which  the Mayor  called 'upon Mr. Hinlon.  Mr.  llinton estimated that $18,000  or  $19,000   would  install  x suitable  ���������steam plant  in  Ladysmith and     , a*  good site, fir thc same would  le by  the creek below the smelter. Regarding water power, the speaker fa id  it  was   a questooii   that  required   tn >r-  oughly looking into before, my st'ips   ���������  were taken.    He spoke of several cities  where large sums had been ic.st  .over water power plants because p'n-  per iinvestigation of conditions      had  not been made before the plants weva  installed.     It was necessary to>ta*ke  measurement's of water for an entire  year  or more Lefore it was  possible  lo      judge   if     a water  power  plant  would be a safe investment.    Colonel  Tracy,      the engineer who      d been  employed by  the Ladysmith con; cil,  was a thoroughly capable man,     and  his repoil would .be a   .eliablc  one.  -V     water     power plant would cost  much more than a steam  plant     to  install.   In      Nanaimo    Ir. Hunter's  cost  more Uian  a steam  power plant  w' tild  have   done,  and  even now he  oi money to make fuither investigations. Since that time, iniorniotion.  lo'iabie oi othei wise, had been coming. To have a thorough investigation made would cost ^a00 or more.  Perhaps then it would be lound impossible to procure water power, lithe investigation were made.ah expert" would have to be employed,  on this .question the advice of nobody  but an expert could be acted upon-  Mr. Rowland inquired if Col. Tra-  eey had not. said that the water  ilownig. over the falls would generate  100-liorse power, but that he did not  know  how much could  be.  stored? Mr.   'whom he, the speaker,  thought  every one would admit was a man  thoroughly acquainted with the creek  in question, had said that sufficient  power to operate a plant that would  furnish light icu a town of this size  could be .obtained if water was stored.  "Mr. Creaves thought the investigations should 'have'been.! made'sooner.  I ;out were the peoie to know what  they were voting for on Saturday?  U'liy was not the investigation made  .some lime ago, so that a statement  could   li>.submitted   at this   mocvtitaig?  The Mayor could  that thc investigations were made  as far as the engineer thought advisable. An the information regarding  the possibility of securing power hy  turning McLeod Creek in Bush Creek  ���������had been given since the engineer was  here.  "Mr. Greaves, "When did you get  this  information?"  "Mayor, "Some of it. not until yesterday, ami that which we got some  time ago we. did not think altogether  .reiiabjk\ and the cost of investigation  being Si")00 we thought it too much  wiUmut even Knowing if (hei by-i'aw-  would  be passed by the people."  Mr.  Greaves���������".Mr. says       it .  would cost only one or two thousand  day.       As      he had said  before,  it  would  take at least a year before reliable  reports could be given.   While  he advised  thc citizens of Ladysmith  to I.cep  thc water powrcr  'jueslion in  mind,  he acU iscd  that if they'wan te I  to get  the  city  lighted  this  winter,  to go ahead and put in a steam power plant;  in  a year  or two,  if they  were convinced that there was  sufficient  water to ioperate a plant,  they  co'iihl move their steam plant. .They  would   lose   only   the engines.,-   The  remainder of the plant could be used  in a water  system,  and the engines  could      be sold at half the original  cost at  least.     Mr.  Hin ton  v sr.t. on  lo say that, there' was no t^il    in  Western Canada half tlie^^Te of   Ladysmiih that  had not electric light.  He spoke of  the advantages of electric     light   over coal  oH,   and  s������id  there     was no   doubt that a steam  plant ��������� would   pay.    The cost of      installing     a plant would be, as   Mr.  Marshall     and     estimated it would  certainly not require more ��������� than three  men  to  operate  the plant.  In answer to questions from gentle  men      in  the  audience,  Mr.  Hinton  said  he   estimated  the  cost  of   light  in  private houses at 10 cents      per  only say again. kilowatt hour.  The old rate in Vaji-  'couver   "was 20     cents.  The citizens  must remember that the city might  grow,  and although 200 horse power  might  furnish  light at present,       it  would be well if a water power plant  was put  in,  lo have 400 horse 'power.  Mr. Hutchinson was next called  upon, n*ul in his address bore out the  proceeding speakers in aU particulars  He spoke of the advantage Ladysmiih ,had over other cities on account of the cheap rate at which coal  could .he procured. Asked by Aid.
