The sewerage problem has not yet
been solved in tbis city, and therefore The Sun considers the following a timely articlo:
At a meeting at Toronto last week
of the Engineers' club the fifth report of the British Royal commission on sewage disposal was discussed by T. Aird Murray, who
The commission divides the various processes as follows, while they
preface their remarks by saying that
all tanks are sedimentation tanks:
(a) Quiescent settlement without
(b) Quiescent settlement wilh
(c) Continous flow settlement
without chemicals.
(d) Continuous flow settlement
with chemicals.
(e) Septic tanks.
With reference to the first of these
processes no fixed rules can be
given. The sewage being allowed to
r'main in thc tanks until such time
as tho greater part of the solids have
settled aud the liquor drawn off by
a. floating arm; the number and
sizes of the tanks depending entirely
on the quantity of Bewage treated
and the amount of time required for
settlement with the particular sewage. Experiments at Leeds and
Sheffield demonstrated that two or
three house was sufficient to remove
a large portion of the suspended
solids and produce a fairly good
tank liquor. With these tanks it is
usual to remove the deposit a'ter
every first or second filling in order
to obtain a highly efficient cond
A great amount of attention is
given to the process of sludge diges
tion, known as the septic tank process. Many and varied opinions
have been ventilated on the process,
most, however, of a very exaggerated and unscientific character, arising, no doubt, from the fact tbat
the process has been run and boomed
by a company whose chief object
has been the selling of their wures at
a profit.
The commission says: The knowledge that the solid matter of sewage
would be digested by passing the
sewage through a heated tank is by
no means novel, but it does not appear to have had any extensive practical application until Mr Cameron,
city surveyor of Exeter, proposed
the adoption of the septic tank treatment for that city.
It was claimed that the septic
tank possesed the following, among
other advantages: Thnt it solved
the sludge difficulty, inasmuch ns
practically alljthe organic solid matter was digested^in the tank; that
it destroyed any pathogenic organisms which tliere may be in the
sewage; that sewage which had
passed through a septic tank wns
more easily oxidized than sewage
from which the solids had been allowed to settle, either with or without the aid^of chemicals, in tanks
which were frequently cleaned out.
The commissioners now are able
to state that all tbe organic Bolids
present in Bewage^are not digestedby
septic tanks, tbe actual amount of
digestion varying with the character
of the sewage, the use of the tanks
relative to the volume treated, and
the frequency of cleansing. With a
domestic sewage, and tnnks worked
at a 24-hours rate, the digestion is
about 25 per cent.
The liquor issuing from septic
tanks is bncterilogically almost as
impure as the sewage entering the
tanks. Domestic sewage which hns
been passed through a septic tank is
not more easily oxidized in its passage through filters than domestic
sewage which has been subjected to
chemical precipitation or simple
In connection witb the amount of
solid matter digested the experiments were carried on for over two
years at the Exeter and Ilford
As regards the third.claim the
experiments were curried on hy Mr.
Eric H. Richards, the commissioners' chemist at Dorking. The experiments were very complete and
The settlement of suspended solids in septic tanks is not unusually
very thorounh, and the evidence
also shows that at many places the
liquor issuing from the tanks contains on the average from 15 to 20
parts of solid.
With reference to closing a tank
over, thc report states:
As regards digestion of sludge,
and quality of tank liquor, the
closed tsnk possesses no advantages
over the open one. The commissioners, however, recommend that
the tanks be closed so as to diminish the nuisance from smell.
The above conclusions appear to
point to the advisability of some improvement to the septic tank as now
used. The only point in its favor in
comparison with other methods np-
pears to be the fact that a percentage of the sludge is dissolved by putrefaction and hydrolysis. The
main point ngainst it is that the
liquor is not constant, and that the
suspended matter increases as time
goes on. This suggests that it is desired to get rid of part of the sludge
by putrefaction.
All sewage works are liable at
times to give of unpleasant smells,
and they should, therefore, be situated away from dwelling houses.
The extent of the aisk of nuisance,
howevir. depends not only on the
chnrncter of the sewage, but also on
the method of treatment.
Septic tank treatment is more offensive than simple sedimentation,
Duriug sludging operations sulphuretted hydrogen is given off.
In this connection thc practice in
the United States inny be noted,
where it is considered advisable to
reduce tho risk of smell by using
septic tnnks ot a capacity of eight
hours, providing coarse gain fillers
which allow a huge amount of suspended matter in the liquid to puss
through into the filtrate, arresting it
in the final effluent.
The horticultural office has issued
a revised edition of the Spraying
Bulletin. Tho formulae given in
this bulletin have all been tested and
are therefore reliable. Spraying has
long been recognized as an important detail in the fruit business, nnd
the energy and thoroughness with
which the provincial government
denls with matters pertaining to its
interests are commendable.
In a letter accompanying the bulletin Thomas Cunningham, provincial inspector of fruit pests, says:
•'The present value of the orchards
of British Columbia hns reached the
enormous sum of fifteen million dollars, und they are increasing in
value at the rate of not less than 25
percent annually. Itis quite safe
to estimate the value of these orchards five years hence at thirty
million dollars.
"In view of this marvellous development every man in this province who has the slightest regard for
the permanent prosperity of this
beautiful and highly favored country, to spare no effort to keep our
orchards and girdens clean, and the
quality of our fruit up to the highest
"This can only be done by close
attention to thorough cultivation,
pruning and the intelligent use of
insecticides and fungicides.
"It is with a view to assist you
that th s bulletin is placed in your
hands. If at any time you feel the
need of special information to enable you to meet unusual conditions, all the assistance possible will
be gladly givenyou on application at
this office."
A Good Stump Extractor
One of our eastern exchanges tells
of the following successful method
to get rid of stumps: Take a two-
inch augur, bore a hole perpendicularly into the stump about two
feet. Pour into this hole one pint
of mixture of equal parts of nitric
and sulphuric acids. Then plug the
hole tightly with a plug dipped in
parafine. In thirty days' time
stumps so treated will be a charred
pulpy mass, root and all, and may
be spread over the soil as fertilizer
with a shovel.
A Message From Mars
[by wireless]
OciiREYVii.LE, Mara, Jan 1.—A
fierce scientific discussion has raged
on this planet during the past fortnight. It appears that last week
was one of thc rare occusious when
the earth is only 35 millions of
miles tuvny from Mars. This fact
induced all the astronomers to focus
their refracting telescopes on lhat
planet. Every one of them discovered
a highly luminous object on a lofty
mountain in the western portion of
thc North American continent. The
discussion arose as to the specific nature uf this discovery. Some of the
more learned of the astronomers contended that it was a second satellite,
thus making the earth's atmospheric
condition similar to that which
prevails on Mars, confirming
Mir contention of u certain faot.on
of Martian scientists that that planet
is not only capable of sustaining
life, but that it is inhabited by a
peculiar species of human beings.
The other faction of wise astronomers
maintained, with equal certainty,
thut tbe luminous body was not a
satellite, but merely a huge bonfire
—an attempt on the part of the inhabitants of the earth to signal
Mars. In substantiation of this
theory they cited the fact that the
visibility of the bright object was
of an intermittent character, appearing and disappearing at irregular
intervals, thus indubitably establishing the fact that the people of the
earth had adopted a regular telegraphic code. The discussion between   theBe two fnctions raged, as
stated   above, for  two  weeks.    Towards the last the debate became so j
acrimonious that both  sides agreed
to submit the matter   to the  minis-!
ter of astronomy and interplanetary
communication nnd to abide hy his i
decision.   His statement was made ]
public   to  the   Martian  world this
morning, and reaels as follows:
"Neither side to this animated
controi-ersA is right, though both
parties have good grounds on which
to base their hypothesis. After carefully examining the luminous object through my powerful telescope,
I am fully convinced that it is
neither a satellite nor a Bignal. The
light, ns near as I can make out, is
caused by a man in a western mining eamp named Phoenix, where he
edits a weekly paper culled the
Pioneer. The fact that he has not
been able to entirely ruin an old established paper in six months' lime
has hnd the tendency to swell his
bend to such an abnormal size thnt
it might easily be mistake i for a
satellite. The intermittent disappearance of the object is caused by
the retiring of the man within his
residence. The case iB a peculiar
one. Here on Mars, where hourly
editions of our lending newspaper is
printed CS7 days in the year; where
they are distributed by airships that
penetrate our fieice hurricani 8 at a
speed of over a thousand mil s per
hour, and where tbe position of
editor in-chief is considered more
exalted than thut held by the ruler of
all tbe Martian world, there is not a
parallel case. And yet the head of
ihis mnn in Phoonix bus expanded
to the luminosity of a star of the
first magnitude ! 'Whut fools these
mortals be !' "

A Good Company
Manager Johnson hns received
thn following letter from the manager
of the Empire theatre,Colville, Wash.:
"The Lee McClellan Dramatic company has just closed a three nights'
engagement    here   to   tbe entire
satisfaction of the theatre-going people of this plnce. The show con-
tnins a feature 1 wish to endorse
heartily, viz.; it is composed of men
and women of good appearance and
quiet manners. Tbeir plays are
clean, moral and well staged; the
acting is exceptionally well presented. The last night drew the
largest house. Your people can en

G. L. Walker, the copper critic,
has the following to sny in n recent
issue of thc Boston Commercial:
"Granby Consolidated stock has nd-
vuiieed to $105. There is almost
none offered in the market, and it is
a very difficult stock to buy, except
at advancing prices. As is always
the practice in the summer and fall,
the company has been mining the
greater portion of its ore from its
surface deposits, where it is slightly
lower in gold, silver and oopperthan
that taken from greater depth. This
is responsible for the report that the
average grade of Granby ore is declining. The latest report from the
mine states that values are averaging
about the same as heretofore, which
hns been approximately 24 to 25
pounds of copper and 81.05 to ?1 25
per ton in gold and silver. When its
plant is operating to full capacity,
Granby produces its copper at ucost
0 i*,J cents per pound, its operating
expenses per ion of ore being very
"About two years ago the Granby
company purchased an interest and
secured control of the big coal minis
and coke ovens at Crow's Nest i'ass.
The management plan to issue 15,-
000 shares of Granby stock later on
to capitalize this investment, which
was made for the purpose of insuring Granby a permanent, regular
supply of coke for smelting. It is
believed that this new st ck will be
issued soon at a price which wi 1
give slocdholders valuable rights, ln
anticipation of this and because of
increased earnings and a continuation of dividends at the rute of $2

''Out It Out"
[A New Year's Poem.]
The old year's shades were quite
pulled down,
When through the village.city.town,
There passed a "sandwich than" with
Whose legend filled a single line:
"Cut it out!''
"Be more specific" said the man
Who plainly rushed too much  the
The "sandwich  man" ne'er turned
Only the tegend writ replied:
"Cut it out!"
"Please  state exactly  what you'd
Desired the man who smoked all day.
But all the answer that he got
Was this laconic, center shot:
"Cut it out!"
The   man   whose   face so haggard
Meant poker playing night and night
Required to know what thing was
And got this answer eloquent:
"Cut it out!"
So every one who looked on it
Felt his especial fault was hit.
Their souls with new resolves did fill,
And all exclaimed aloud:   "We will
Cut it out!"
So all braced tip and for three days
Frequented narrow, proper ways
And feel lowed fully up the plan
Suggested by the "sandwich man":
"Cut it out!"
But are the sandwich man did trace
A four days'journey from the place
All things were at thoy were before,
And no one hinted more:
"Cuf it out I"

Afraid of Ghosts
Many people cm afraid of ISma. Few people
are afraid of tenia. Yet the fboat ii a fanoy and
the (enn is a fact. If the term couW be magnified
to a size equal to its terrors it would appear more
terrible than any fire-breathing dragon. Germs
can't be avoided. They are in the air we breathe,
the water we drink.
The germ ean only prosper wben the condition
of the system girea it free aeope to establish itself and develop.   When there ia a deficiency of
vital force, languor, restlessness, a sallow cheek,
a hollow eye, when the appetite is poor and the
sleep- is broken, it is time to guard against the germ.   Yon ean
lortify the body against all germs by the use of Dr, Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery.   It increases the vital power, deanses the
system of clogging impurities, enriches the blood, pats the stomach and organs of digestion and nutrition in working condition, bo
t'lii'. the germ finds no weak or tainted spot in whioh to breed.
"Golden  Medical  Discovery" contains no alcohol, whisky or
' h. i it-forming drugs.   All iff, ingredients printed on its outside
wrapper.    It is not a secret nostrum but a medicine op known
composition and with a record of 40 yean 0/ era,   Accept no
