The Colgate power plant stands on the  north bank  of the canyon o! the  North  Yuba  river, ]ust where  the famous old Missouri Bar trail crosses from bank  to bank.     The water is brought  to the crest of the  cliff above the power  hout*@  by means  of a  timber  flume seven  and  one-half miles long;  drawing its  supply from the  impounded   waters further up the  canyon.     It can carry 23,000 cubic feet of water per  minute.     This flume  is seven   feet   wide, six   feet  deep, and, with a descent of thirteen feet to the mile,  winds tortuously   around  the gorge,  following  the  contour of the mountains, until   it  reaches  ��be big  penstock of masonry, from which,  at a right angle,  Ave anchored iron and   steel pipes,   dipping   downward, then  convey  the water  headlong  to the  receivers and turbines at the foot of the  steep  incline,  seven hundred feet below.     To those  who   are  accustomed to the lower 6t heads"  of   eastern   water  powers, this may seem a big drop, Niagara giving  a  bare two hundred feet at its best point, but   Colgate  is by no means the most sensational of the Californian  plants in this respect.     The power house at Colgate  has five pipes each thirty feet in   diameter as  they  come to the back   door,   and   the   structure is   two  hundred and seventy-live feet long by forty   feet   in  width.     It contains  seven   generating   units of   a  total of 15,000 horse power, the Risdon water wheels  being of Californian make, while the three-phase  alternating current dyramoB  hail  from the  works of  the Stanley   Electric   Manufacturing company   in  quiet Pittsfield, Massachusetts.     Three of  the huge  ^  dynamoQ   are of  3,000   hor&e   power each, and are  doubtless the largebt  for the  purpose  driven   with  horizontal connection to a,water wheel.     The larger  units in the plant make 285 revolutions per minutes,  and generate a current at 2,400 volts,  which   would  be of little use in   driving it   to the   destination   so  many   leagues   away.     But   auxiliary    appliances  known as transformers raise the  pressure to  40,000  and 60,000 volts, or twice and three  times as niudi  as the highest transmission pressure used at Niagara.  The pole lines  or  circuits  that carry   the electric  current are among the most   interesting  features  of  the whole installation,  not only on  account of the  distance traversed   and  the  nature of  the country,  but the high potential  that  has been resorted to  so  that Bmall wires may be used.     One  pole line may  Vie noted as an example, that which runs in duplicate,  over hill and dale to O.ikland, the dormitory of San  Francisco���a double aeiial   track of   three wires  on  each pole for current-flashing at   10,000  and  60,000  volts, or, say, nearly 600 times  the  pressure in   the  incandiscent lampa or fan motors in daily use at th��  consumption end.     The poles are big  Oregon cedar  sticks ranging up   to  aixty   feet in  height, and   th��  p' *   g �� -  .J" H?  i*h  **��� y  i--*-:  -���^  ���  i"!r       ���r   ���  U 1 iXpl^i  Eft       ��- J /"-j     Zp^ ��.*?,  it tins  bfvsnur.ii  JK,<  rs^eai  ��82  s"i  ���"it-- ... .,���.

On Thursday,   January 16, the properly  qualified  votnrB of Nelson will be  called   upon to  select  their  rulers for   the present year.      There   are two candi-  daies for mayor in the field���the present incumbent,  Mr. Frank Fletcher, and Mr. John Kirkpatrick. The  former has presided at the council board for one year,  apd to Thk    Economist's way   of   thinking has administered    the duties of   his   office   with    marked  ability and success.     He would be   something   more  than human    if   he gave an    absolutely perfect   administration,    but we think    it can    be claimed   for  'him that on the whole his choice   a*  mayor for   the  past year was a wine one and fully justified the  confidence reposed in him by the men who were   instrumental in bringing him out.     The   other   candidate  is Mr. John    Kirkpatrick,   a   gentleman   known  Ui  every   citizen   of   Nelson,   and   whose   friendn   are  equally    an    numeroua aa  bin     acquaintances.       It  Hpeakf* well for Mr. Kirkpatrick   that   the men   who  will vote against him will do  ho only with the   conviction that hi*B   opponent   more  nearly   approaches  their ideal <>f n mayor and without the nlijjhteHt   ill-  fe����lin# against Mr. Kirkpatrick.     So far the interest  in the campaign is confined to tho mayoralty candidates, but there are also a large   number  of  citixemj  who   are offering themselveu for   aldermen,   but   t'u;  I hk Ottawa   City   Council   wants the DomioiWf  Government to bear a  t,hare   of the con of a draioi  that will benefit Rideau Hall   grounds.

Amstutz,  of Cleveland, the inventor of a  process  for  sending  pictures over wires to   distant   points, has  recently  brought out an improved process for the making  of  half-tone pictures for   newspaper   uee.     Its   chief  value is the rapidity   with   which  a picture of  this  character   can be   made,   although   it has  another  merit,  and   that   is   that    the    whites    are    pure  and     solid    and      not     broken     up    by      dots,  as     is   generally    the    case.      This    makes    the  picture crisp  and sparkling   because   of the   sharp  contrasts secured in the print."  i.i..-   ..ii  ���TT-T"-~"-��� ���   Hebe is the Fletcher ticket for aldermen: Messrs,  W.

Mr. Morris*  lived in his own quiet, unostantatious way, and thus  accomplished what few newspaper publisher* in  British Columbia have done in the past, a life if  not of luxury at  least of ease.  Many busy men of affairs, soldiers and sailor* have  shown an unsuspected talent for authorship���' Grant,  for example ; and many other men who might be  supposed to have at least the ability to tell a plain  story have failed completely therein. It is recorded  of Speke, the explorer and discoverer of the sources  of the Nile, that he went through such misery in trying to write out the narrative of his journey that the  work was taken out of his hands, his rough notes being put in shape and ukc! by a well known literary  man.  The Rossland Dramatic Society gave a perform inoe at the Nelson Opera Hou*e last Friday  night, and le f t for Greenwood early next morning.  '��� We were playing in a small town out West back  in the seventies." relate* a theatrical man, "when  our leading heavy man had rather a tough experience.  All the miners were in the theatre. The heavy man  had been persecuting a poor maiden' through two  acts. In the third act he came to the powerful  scene of  the   play.  44 'At last, he said, I have you in my   power,'  and  nothing ou earth can save you!

Yours truly, Pat."  ins  In the latter days of his life the Rev. Rowland  **!ll used to come to his chapel in a carriage. He  got an anonymous letter rebuking him for this, because it was not the way his Heavenly Master  traveled. He read the letter from the pulpit, and  said it was quite true, that if the writer would come  to the vestry wi*h a saddle and bridle he would -  ride him home.  Several ladies were discussing the virtues of their  husband*. Said one of them : ����� Mine Jiever  drinks, never swears   nor does  he  chew. t->oe8  he ever smoke?" "Yes, be always likes a cigar  just after he has eaten a good meal; but I suppose  that, on an average, he doesn't smoke more.- than  once a month." Some of ber friends laughed, but  she didn't eeem to understand why.  itf-pM  An old Scotchwoman was walking to church wi^th  her family.

The  Lord bless  him  puir man !   His heart's in his wark, an' he's  eager  to be at it."    A voune man who was a porter on the Caledonian Railway went to Edinburgh to get married.  Before his departure to the latter place he was sup-  nlied wi h a mss. On his return he was surprised  S find a nevv ticket-collector, and when asked for  hteoaWor ticket, he produced by mistake his  marrfageCertificate. The strange Rector glanced  through it, and then said gravely: H,h eh 'noon-  ye have got a teeket for a lang journey, but nae on  the Caledonian Railway."  ���'"��� i-' -2  It.
