Mr. Simpson Has a Scheme
to Increase and Cheapen
City's Water Supply
Editor Evening Sun.
Sir:—1 have been engaged for
some time in collecting figures relative to a general system of water
supply for the city and valley, and
wish through your columns to make
the result of my investigations pub'
lie. All my figures have been ob-
tained from , specialists in the vari-
ous lines of industry concemed,Jand
full reliance can be placed on them.
I consulted many persons, none of
whom could tell me about all the
different aspects of the case, but
each of whom contributed what he
knew. In this letter I have combined the facts I obtaiued, so as to
give complete information.
On the property of Mrs. Perkins,
at a point probably 150 feet above
the Great Northern track, there is a
natural basin, covering an area of
about two acres and about fifty feet
deep. This could be used
reservoir for storing water brought
from the streams running into tbe
North Fork. It is just ten miles
from this reservoir to a point on
Pass creek probably 200 feet higher
than the surface of the reservoir.
There are three creeks—Carter's,
Fisherman and Brown's—between
the reservoir and the point mentioned, and sufficient water could
probably be obtained from them;
but I shall deal with I'ass creek
alone, as there is no doubt at all
concerning the sufficiency of the
water to be obtained there.
The distance from the point diversion on Pass creek to the proposed
reservoir is 52,800 feet. High pressure wooden pipe, sufficient for a
head of 250 feet, can be bought in
Vancouver, brought here "and laid
down along the line of the Kettle
Valley railway for 73 cents a foot-
The cost of placing the top of this
pipe two feet below the surface of
the ground along the wagon road or
the Kettle Valley line right of way
would he ten cents a foot, making
83 cents a foot altogether. The cost
of 52,800 feet at 83 cents a foot
would be $43,821; that is, $48,824
would buy the pipe, bring it to tbe
point where it is to be used, and
bury it in the ground so that its
highest point would be two feet be
low the surface. I'ass creek is formed
by the union of three small sUeains
a considerable distance up the
mountain side. Should this junction
of these streams be found to take
place at a lower level than the proposed reservoir, a smaller pipe could
be run up each stream and the water
from the three pipes could be run
into the large pipe. The vater could
be brought directly down to the
bottom of the valley from the point
of diversion, and then run along the
wagon road or tho Kettle Valley line
right of way lo a point opposite the
reservoir. There would be no rockwork if the pipe were buried along
the wagon road, as there is a sufficient depth of soil all the way from
I'ass creek to the reservoir, and the
rapid descent of the water from the
point of diversion at Pass creek to
the   bottom  ot  the  valley would
probably   prevent  it from freezing
there if the pipe were not covered.
It would be neceasary to connect
the reservoir with the city system,
and this could he done by means of
an eight-inch pipe ahout 80(10 feet
long, which would reach the city's
eight-inch pipe at the Winnipeg
avenue bridge. Eight-inch pipe can
be bought in Vancouver, laid down
where it is to be used, and buried
so that  its highest point will  be
in treatment.
"Bui tne culminating point in my
visit to the Kettle valley was reach-
I ed in the orchard and ranch belonging to the Cooper Brothers.    I   can-

three feet four inches below the surface for 51 cents a foot; that is, 8000
feet would cost $1080. The total
cost, therefore, of bringing an abundant supply of water from Pass
creek to the roservoir, and from the
reservoir to the city, would be
$47,904. If $2096 were allowed for
putting clay on th9 bottom of the
reservoir, and other expenses, the
total cost would be $50,000.
The next question to be considered
is the raising of the necessary 850,-
000. This is an easy matter. The
city's borrowing limits have not yet
been reached, and it has the legal
right to borrow $50,000, if the ratepayers wish this to be done. The
city's five per cent bonds sell at par,
and the interest on $50,000 at five
per would be $2500 a year. The
cost of pumping the water into the
tank on Observation mountain is
$3000 a yeer; so if the city gave up
the pumping system, and adopted
the gravity system I have proposed,
there would be a saving of $500 a
year. The people of Grand Forks
would, under the proposed gravity
system, have much purer water,
much better fire protection and
lower fue insurance rates, and save
$500 a year. The reservoir on Mrs.
Perkins' place is as large as the reservoir of the city of Toronto, which
supplies water for the lawns, bathrooms and kitchens of 300,000 people. The water from it could be
thrown by the force of gavUy over
the roof of Justice Clement's house
on the hill, and there would f;be an
immense body of water to draw from
in case of a Ure. If anything should
happen to the pump or tbe electrical apparatus of the present system,
where wouldjthe^city be in case of a
fire?
I have shown that if the water
were used in the city alone, there
would be a saving of $500 a year;
but I can present a much better
showing than that. Last summer
the pump here worked I7J hours a
day during thc hottest weather of
the summer, and sent 840,000 gallons a day into the tank. The pro
posed 12-inch pipe from Pass creek
would be running all the time, and
during each 24 hours would convey
7,200,000 gallons into the reservoir.
Deducting 810,000 gallons, the
quantity used by the city each dny,
we find that there would be a surplus of 8,360,000 gallons available
each day for irrigating fruit lands
within the city limits and in other
partB of the valley. It is necessary
to thoroughly soak thc soil in an
orchard twice during the hot season,
and two inches of wuter place.! on
the surface each time will do this;
that is, four inches of water will he
needed during July and August for
this purpose. The number of gallons of water necessary to cover an
acre to a depth of four inches is
120,000.   The surplus beyond  the

Work hy Farmers' Institute on the 7th
is illustrated with a number of
scenes on Cooper Bros', ranch. Regarding the Kettle valley he says:
"In tho Grand Forks and the
Kettle valley it may he said without
disparagement of other districts,
that here orcharding is. cariied on
as a fine art. Investigations of the
scientist receive attention, are put to
the test, and if found in accordance
with the laws of nature, are carried
out with strict attention to every detail. Here mile after mile may be

orchards in all stages from the seedling to trees of mature age bowed

him. Speaking for myself, 1 little

confirmation of all that I had been
learning about the Campbell meth
ods, yet such was the case. In 1900

" 'No,' said Mr. Cooper, 'we are
getting maximum results now; you
know what a heavy crop of strawberries we had; you can see what the
potatoes are like; the oat crop is a
heavy one; the fruit trees have made
steady growth from the time tbey
were planted, and there are no better croppers in tbe valley (to this
there was a murmur of assent), and
A meeting under the Grand Forks
Farmers' Institute will be held in the
Dreamland theatre in this city on
Thursday, April 7, at 8 o'clock in the
evening, at which the deputy minister of agriculture, J. C. Metcalfe, and
R. M. Winslowand M. S. Middleton
will take part. Thursday afternoon,
at 2:30 o'clock, a meeting will be
held at Reuben Hughes' ranch, where
a practical demonstration in spraying, pruning and planting will be
given. The spraying demonstration
will be given by Mr. Winslow. Every
person who owns an orchard, whether
it consists of a hundred acres or only
a few trees in the back yard, can gain
some practical knowledge regarding
modern horticultural methods at these
meetings, and it is to be hoped that
everybody will avail themselves of the
opportunity to attend. The meetings
will be free to all, and ladies as well
as gentlemen are cordially invited to
be present.
Clinton Atwood met with an accident while out hunting last Saturday,
now,'Mr. Cooper added, 'there is the accidental discharge of his weapon
something which you irrigationists sending a   bullet  throngh his foot
overlook—three tnings which are
necesBary to get first class results—
air, heat and moisture in the soil,
and 'f yon get one in excess of the
other the balance is destroyed and
your crop suffers. I tell you we
would rather farm in a district where
the rainfall is less than twelve inches
per annum than in one over that
mark.'

Irnds tbat could be irrigated during
July and August. Of course, there
would be the same surplus throughout the year, that is, two inches for
each month, or twenty-four inches
during the year, but it is necessary
to reclton only the lund that could
be irrigated during July nod August.
If the city charged $'2 an acre for
water on the 3280 acres, a revenue

from the fruit growers This
amount, together with the ?">H0 previously mentioned ub being saved,
would increase the revenue of the
city by more than $7000 a year
without adding a cont to the taxes.

The citizens of Grand Forks
should go to see this basin. Any
one, male or female, can easily
reach it. It can be reached with a
wagon or buggy. The best way to
reach it on foot is to puss Mr. Topp'
house on the roud to Smelter June
tion and go to the top of the hill.
Kilter nt the gate on the right, and
immediately turn to the left, passing between the Great Northern wire
fence and Mr. Topp's wire fence.
Follow the trail just outside of Mr.
Topp's fence to the top of the hill,
and go along the brow of the hill,
pnssing under the power line. Thc
basin is 200 feet beyond the power
line.    It will be necessary to   spend
n little money on one end of the bit-
sin to make the walls equally high
all the way nround. If a 16-inch
pipe were used instead of a   12 inch,
the cost would be greater, but the
whole vulley could be irrigated. Tho
interest on the addition   to the cost
would be much smaller than the in-
crease in the revenue produced by
using a 15-incb pipe, and there is
an abundance of water to fill even
an 18 inch pipe nt low witter.
The totnl rainfall during thc year
is abopt 12 inches. The proposed
system would give each fruit glower
two inches a month or 24 inches
during the yenr, so thut lie would
get three times ns mush wuter mutually ns he gets now.
In the case of large trees, where
nothing would be planted between
the rows, the wnter. Instead of being distributed equally over the
ground to n depth of two inches, it
could be put on , the ground along
the rows to n much greater depth.

Consumptives ?
THIN UND YOUR CONTRIBUTIONS TO TR__
MUSKOKA FREE HOSPITAL
FOR CONSUMPTIVES
A national institution tbat accepts
patients from all parts of Canada.
Here is one of hundreds of letters
being received daily :—
John D. McNauqhton, New Lis-
keard, Ont.: A young man not belonging here, and suffering from,
It is believed, consumption, is
being kept by one of the hotels
here. He has no means and has
been refused admission to our
hospital. The conditions where
he is offer him no chance. Could
he be admitte/i to your Free Hospital for Consumptives? If not,
could you ii/Iorm me where he can
be sent, and what steps are necessary to secure prompt admittance?
NOT A IIN0L1 PATIENT HAS EVER BEEN
REFUSED ADMISSION TO THE MUSKOKA
FREE HOSPITAL BECAUSE OF HIS OR HER
INABILITY TO PAY.
Since the hospital was opened in
April, 1002, one thousand five
hundred and twenty-four patients
have been treated in this one institution, representing people from
every province in the Dominion.
For the week ending November
20th, 1809, one hundred and twenty-
five patients were in residence.
Ninety-six of these are not paying a
coppar for their maintenance—aUolutely
froo. The other twenty-nine paid
from $2.00 to $4.00 a week. No
one pays more than $1.00.
Suitable cases are admitted
promptly on completion of application papers.
A GRATEFUL PATIENT
Norah P. Canham: Enclosed you
will find receipt for my ticket from
Gravenhurst, Imping that you will
be able to oblige me with the fare.
I was at your Sanatorium ten
months, ana I was sent away from
there as an apparent cure. I am
now working in the city, and I am
feeling fine. I was most thankful
for the care I got from the doctors
nnd staff, and I must say that I
spent the time of my life while I
was there.
TAICINO   THU   CI'RI   IN    WINTER    AT   MUSKOKA

The Muskoka Free Hospital for
Consumptives is dependent on the
good-will and gifts of the Canadian
public. Money is urgently needed
at tho present time to make it
possible to care for the large and

Will you help ?
