Gentlemen,��������� Iii accordance with  your instructions X have carefully examined ihu plant of tlie Revelstoke  WalecLight and Power Company.'ind  beg lo report as follows :  fl KN EK.U. PKSCUI PTION.  Tho power plant, is situated aliout  two milt's from tho city on the Illecillewaet, river and consists of a. dam 25  feet in height built of t'unlier erihwork  filled wilh slune covcied with planking with a good filling of stone and  javelin front, an abutment and a.  protection cnli ou tlu-. upstream side  and a buttress ciih below all of timber  ciihwork lilli'd witli stone.  Stop log openings arc provided for  regulating tliu Hows into thu Hume  and wasle way.  The Hume is S x 10 inside. 1000 feet  in length with a guide of 2 feet per  100 and constructed of wood sheeted  on the inside with <i in. matched-and  dressed planking and strengthened by  tiinher framing and iron tie lods.  At th'e upper end is placed a head  pale occupying a portion of thu flume  wilh the balance fitted temporarily  with stop logs. *  .  Ac the lower end connection is made  to a steel pressure tube'9 feet, in" diameter from which the water is delivered to the'\\ heel caning wliich is also of  steel rivetted.  In the casing are two turbine wheels  27 inches iu diameter on a, horizontal  shaft, and provided with draught tubes  leading into the wheel pil.  Tlie building containing the whetls,  dynamo etc., is of frame 45 x 05 feel  well constructed with a wheel pit 8\-l  deep under.  The dynamo ishy the Canadian General JClectric Co., of a capacity of 2000  lights 10 C. P. with exciter, electric  regulator aud oilier necessary appliances.  A statement of the circuits will he  found attached to the estimates oi  value. "��������� ;       ���������  CONDITION" OF THE WORKS.  At lhe time of my visit, the quantity,  of water in the river was too great to  permit me to judge uf the stability ul'  the dam but from tlie statement oi a  disinterested pi ofesskuial gentleman  of undoubted judgment I am satisfied  lhat the dam itself has been very well  constructed. , . ���������'   .    ,  The apron however lias from faulty  design heen partially carried away and  also the lower portion of the huttre-s  crib and this should be remedied at  the next low water by thi!construction  of a limber crib of good width across  the sli-e'ini and extended to secure, lhe  lower end of lhe bullress i-i-ih. Tbio  will I'm tn the. lower part of Llie apron  which should be made so as to carry  off the water, with the least possible  obr-t ruction.  The lower part of the apion should  be placed as low as il conveniently cm  so that tliu discharged waters will not  return from below aud lift the Hoorirtg  of the apron.  lt i.s also advisable to use suilicient  screw bolts to secure the timbers together as ordinary drift holts alone are  not reliable whe.ru there is an upward  current against the lower face of the  cribbing.

The flume is carried for the gt eater  part of ils length along the hank of  the. river and is considerably exposed  at the upper end. A portion of it as  origin.'illy constructed has been carried  away and there will always he some  danger from this sotnee. -  I think the iluine would have been  better if built as an open flume with  just sufficient full to carry the water  witli tin; drop entirely nt the lower  end or, if a pressure flume, of stove  pipe (landed with iron.  The durability of tlie dam should be  20 to 25 years and of lhe pipes and  Hume aliout 12 years.  The building with care and necessary  repairs should lie good for 2. to 30  years and the casings and wheels at  least that time.  The electrical work generally will  average about 1.. years.  The power is undoubtedly good hut  the expense of keeping up the abutments and flume will always be  considerable aud detracts from' the  value of the works.  Ihe cross ties (iron rods) in the flume  check the flow a good deal "not on  account of their size but from the  eddies they cause which obstruct the  flow and consequently reduce the  pressure.  The machinery is good and should  give satisfaction.  Some stoppages have been caused, I  am informed, in severe weather by  anchor ice and in 11 rapidly flowing  stream will:always be liable tn   oceui.  This ���������'anchor ice" or "frasil" as it  is sometimes called forms in the bed of  the stream in open running water in  extreme cold weather and being of the  samu specific gravity us the water will  not like ordinary ice rise to tho surface  bub floats at all depths nnd adheres to  the racks and wheels, sometimes if in  sr.fllr.ient quantity, shutting off the  How of tho water.

These benches are also good clay land,  no rook   or  giavel   showing  on   the  surface.   The surface of both bottom  and   bench  hind   is   very   level    and  uniforiii:   small   tedar,    spruce,    and  balsnnt timber and considerable  binh  in   the   bottoms;   cedar,   spi uce   and  hemlock on the benches and mountains  ���������all small timber and of no  commercial value.     The  vegetation  indicates  considerable rainfall  throughout this  valley, and I do not think  h Ligation  will  be required; but if  so,   theie in  abundance of  water for  this purpose  iu   tiie   creeks   flowing    through  the  valley.    I  am   informed   by  trappers  who have wintered here thai the snow-  is from three to four feet in depth, and  the timber and hushev indicate  a  considerable .snowfall.     The   altitude   is  about 1.S30 feet above sea level.   The  general formation is granite.  '  From the month of Canoe River to  Grews Rapids, a distance of 22 miles in  a   tun th-westerly   couise,   the   valley  will   average about  one h-tlf-inile iu  width,    ft has good clay soil,   with  a  gravelly   sub-soil;    small   cedar    and  spi uce timber and considerable bush.  The river is  from  400 to  1000  feet in  width,   wilh   an    average   current  of  about five miles per hour.     The banks  are from C to 15 feet high,  showing  ���������_  good clean clay soil.  Near Grews Rapids the valley widens  out from one to two miles wide, and  continues the same north-westerly  course to Tele 'Jaime Cache, on the  Fiaser River. It has heen uin.over  with fire, and the timber aud hush iu  the valley, as wellas upon the mountains, are a young growth. . Fiom  ���������ribout Grews Rapids we left the wet  belt and eutered a drier country. We |  did not see moss upon the ground and I  Umber as we did below ��������� and on the  Columbia River. The soil is u, blue  clay five to- fifteen feet deep, with a  gravelly sub-soil, covered in many  places with one. to two feet of black  vegetable muck; small cedar, cotton-  wood,' spruce, and hazel* bushes in  patches and clumps; good meadows  froui.ten lo two hundred acres scattered throughout the valley. The soil  nud climate is very -much superior to  that at the month" of the river. The  snow and rainfall is also less. The  river is from 100 to 100 feet in ividr.li,  very crooked, and has an average  current of about two miles per hour:  hanks from six to fifteen feel high. I  am informed hy Afes-a-s. ISInc-kiunre  and Jackson, who spent, the last two  winters in this valley, that the snow-  was not over fifteen inches deep at any  time, and the winters vii v mild. The  timber and beaver cuttings indic.ite  a very light snowfall. * I did not see  any beaver cutlinsrs over twelve ���������to  eighteen inches above the ground. 1  am also . informed that the spring  weather opens from a. month to six  weeks earlier here than at lhe- mouth  of the river.  The mountains generally comedown  with low foothills and benches, and in  many places these benches* along the  base ol the mountains aie eood soil and  could be cultivated; good feed for  sttiek-^iu^the^i.iottojiis^-Hnd^Jbejitdies.  Bear nnd cariboo arc veiy plentiful  along the river.  We found numerous Indian camps  along the river, nresumably left, by  Crees. who may have come in from  the Northwest by way of Jasper  House. At about S. iniles below  Grews Rapids (about 51 miles by river)  the river takes asouth westerly course  for about four miles to the font of the  canyon, at the head of navigation for  boats, but the valley continues lhe  same north-westerly course for about  20 miles to Tele .home Cache on the  Frasei* River, and is from two to four  mile- iu width; ili-st-dns.-. soil,, with  small Cottonwood, willow, alder, and  ha'/.i-l bush; also some small pines* and  hemlock timber'. , The mountains, on  ench side'are low, of a granite formation, and come down with foothills  and benches.  Cranberry Jvike envois about 1500  acre's and is a shallow body nf water;  i������ situated about two mile.-" not Ml nt  Trail Cnissii.g; could hi- easily dtaiiteul  and made into diy land. " lV- ���������  If irrigation should he required  there is abundance of water for thai  purpose in the creek-j running through  the valley every few miles, and the  water could be brought upon tlie land  with very little expense. Koine of the  larger creeks come out of laree vallevs,  The altitude is about 2,21)0 feet ahdve  sea level.  ' I estimate llio (list-mice from Rev.-l-  stnki; lo Trail Cro-sing at, nlioiit 174  mile-, by water und alxiui. loO miles bv  a wagon road route. At this point  t'.e bushes and timber also indicate a  light snowfall, and I am infonued by  Mr. Joseph Null, of South Tboini>--mi  River, who was with .**, C.P.R. survey  parly through this countrv .-is Ii  packer in 187-175. that they wintered  their stock here and never had over  eight to ten inches of snow. I think  the climate is very similar to that  around Kamloops. judging from the  general appeiirance of the country.  The Hrst frost of this season occuned  nn the. night of September 18th. and  previous to this there had heen aliout  two weeks' rain. There was wet  weather at Kamloops corresponding  with this and frost about the same  date.  We lett Trail Crossing on the morning of September 20th, arriving at  Revelstoke on the evening of September 27th. We ivtre 14i days goins; up  from Revelsloke to "tbe mouth of  Canoe River,  and  Hi days from the  ROAD | r;;.;  I think the trip could bp made in 15*  to 20 days ,".t a favoiiible stage of the  river.  Tbe ColumbiaRiver from RevelstokR  to ilie mouth of Canoe River could he*  made   navigable   for     steamboats   .it  almost all stages of the year.     Neither'  Canoe     River   nor   Wood    River    is'  navigable for steamer.-.*,   but a  wagon*  road could be built through tlie C.inoe  River   valley  veiy  cheaply,  and  this*,  seems to ine'the most feasible way of  bringing this  beautiful  valley  within  the reach of seniors; or the   trail  up'  tbe   Columbia   River,   whicli  ends- at*  Smith Creek, could be continued* up to;  the mouth of Canoe  River, about 27-  mile-* and widened  for a  waijou  road  if required.  1 would place the acreage of good  agricultural land *as follows,, vi/..-.���������  acres.

Smith Creek Placers Proving Bonanzas'-  for the Owners.���������The Biggest- Strike*  in 30 Years.  Most encouraging reports-have been  received tliis   week   from   the   Smith'  Cieek placers, in tlie Big  Bend, which*-  show     every    indication   of   proving'  bonanza properties.     F. McCarty   returned Monday fiom  a   three   week's-  visit to his holdings on  Smith' Creek;.  in   which he   and "Andy   Parks-; am  interested.     The woik   is, being'done*  on  the   lieveltioke   where-they have-  some fifteen men at woik and are now-  down 115 feet,   having   installed   new  machinery     this   summer    which   is*  working most satisfactorily.  From one can->e and another the1-  workings on these claims have hereto--  foil- given but small returns, but-  imiler- the new conditions obtaining."  this year, principal' amongst which-  hiive been a change of management/'  and the. installation of new machinery,-  this suite of things have been entirely  revei-sed ahd tliey are now in very"  good pay, notwithstanding ' that the  channel, where it is- reastinable to"*  expect the largest deposits*, has not-  yet been reached. iii*.*. _\IvCa_t-ty reports that the returns hivve .iverageil"'-  froio ������12.50 per cubic ynril," gradually'  increasing with, depth down ��������� tn the"  present drift at a "depth of 11t feet-  where the piy averages 822.50 per"  cuhic yayd.- '  This is said to be the   richest  strike. '  in   deep  pincers   in   B." 6.  since the*  strike   made- on Lightening  Creek in*-'  Cariboo   in   1S72, and  speaks'voHmies ���������  for the wealth of   the 'placers   of   the**  Big Bend,.which   with-intelligent and  energetic     .working   will   no     doubt-  rival those  of  .any"district -in B.'C. inland proverbially rich in placers.'.   In ���������  confirmation of'this, a gentleman who'-������  1ecen1.lv   visited   the   district; with a  view to investment in placer properties -  after visiting other parts of   the'  province, expressed the   opinion- that he '  knew of no part of 13. C. which offered  better-inducements to thc investor-  of"  limited'capital, than do-- the   placers'*-  of the Big Ben.l district.  . It i-s evidences such as  these ��������� which*'  justifies the confidence shown by those***  who   have,     stayed   with, this*"camp-  despite   the   excitement_;���������-and   rushes-  elsewhere, and-Mr.   McOarty.'s  latest-  intelligence   regarding     the    district-  comes as  a welcome   reminder to   ns,.  which, but" further  confirms  the oft**  r'epe.-ited remark of prospectois them- -  selves, lhat right at our own doors ive ���������  have   ptacei-s   as   rich   as   any in the '  province.

BLACK EYE FOR   CANADA  DISGRACED BY HER "POETS"  London    Chronicle     Wades into   the  Treasury of Canadian Verse���������Too  Many Verses, too Little Poetry  OUR MORMON CITIZENS  A LINE TO THE BOUNDARY  The  position  which Cardston occupies about 150  miles nearly south of  Calgary   (on the line which the C. &  E. railway company must in the near  future build to the boundary   or lose  its  charter)  is  one  which  our board  of trade would do well to consider. A  large tract of country, between forty  and fifty miles from any railway, has  been brought to a high state of cultivation by an industrious and thrifty  people.    The   Mormon   colony   whicli  at the present time numbers over 3000  people, is increasing very rapidly and  the   quantity  of  goods    required     to  supply the wants of such a community is very  good indeed.    At present  these  goods  are  nearly  all  freighted  in   from   Lethbridge,   a   distance   o������  fifty miles and it is by no means an  uncommon sight to see from thirty to  forty  four horse  teams    laden    with  goods   come   into   ' Cardston     in   one  string.    The goods come  direct from  eastern wholesalers, but with a direct  road to Calgary or other town where  the  merchants  do a jobbing trade, a  profitable  business  might  be  worked  up.    Neither Macleod  nor Lethbridge  has secured very much of this    trade  as  yet  nor  will  any  other point till  direct railway  communication    is established.  Last year enterprising Cardston  citizens erected a large roller flour  mill, and a woollen factory and a  sugar beet factory are in contemplation.  About thirty miles beyond Cardston is a mining camp which at the  ~^present~time~is~attracting���������'a���������great-  deal of atention and although this  camp is within the American lines,  the miners draw their supplies from  this side of the line. It is said it is  an impossibility for an American line  to build into this country without  coming into Canadian teritory. Here,  then, is a business that is well worth  looking after: if Calgary bestirs herself a portion of this trade might be  brought here.  Dominion   Day  Celebration  ston.  at  Card-  "A Treasury of Canadian Verse" with  Brief Biographical Notes. : Selected and edited by Theodore H.  Rand, D.C.L. (London; J. M.  Dent & Co.    6s.)  Colonial poetry is beginning to  make clamorous demands upon the  critic's attention. We have already  had a voluminous anthology of Australian verse���������containing much indeed that is- excellent���������and here is  a book, almost equal ia bulk, which  presents itself as the first collection1  ever attempted of the poetry of Canada. The collection has evidently  been made with much enthusiasm and  industry on the part of the editor;  the biograhical notes are concise and  helpful, and the book is put forth  handsomely and with dignity. In  short, it is altogether a self-respecting  attempt towards an interesting and  attractive task.  From these external adornments  we turn with expectation to the  poetry itself; and the reader's first  impression is one of surprise at the  enormous number of poets represented. It is probable that the general  reader knows very little indeed about  Canadian literature; but even the expert student of poetry will be astonished to find that no fewer than 135  writers of verse have contributed to  this well-filled Treasury. Oue hundred and thirty five Canadian poets!  and of these not mors than eight are',  we believe, known even by names  in this country. Eight names are,  indeed, familiar; but of these only  three are .known primarily as poets.  Professor Goldwin Smith, C. J. Romanes, and Grant Allen have, indeed,  like most other men of letters, written occasional verse as a parergon;  but their serious work was done in  widely different fields. Mr. Gilbert  Parker and Miss Sara Jeanette Duncan are popular novelists who have  sowed their wild oats in the furrows  of poetry; but it would be a, false  compliment to pretend that the harvest is at all considerable. Mr,- Bliss.  Carman, "Mr. Charles G. D. Roberts  and Miss Pauline Johnson are the  three Canadian poets already known  to this country, and their work is  very similar in range and quality. The  range, it is true, is not wide, nor  the quality very high, but both range  and quality have a certain clear,  the pad'dle of a canoe. They havo, in  frosty atmosphere and dim effect, as  of the sound of rippling water under  short a soft Canadian spirit, unfamiliar and apparently true in tone  and touch. The work of these three  poets is much what we might expect  Canadian verse to be, simple, unaffected, free, of the open air. It is  not high poetry, but it has melody  and color. It will, give easy pleasure to the cultivated ear.  Editor Too Enthusiastic  From these singers whose reputation is already made in England, the  reader turns expectantly to thc remaining 127, not without some hopes  of the enthusiasm of Dr-. Rand, the  editor. Here, says he in the introduction, will he found inspiration  from "the virgin freshness and promise of our country; the life and  deeds ot men everywhere; the yearnings of the individual soul; and the  aspirations of a people after the noblest  and divinest." These are brave  words. The editor of a Golden  Treasury of one of the richest literatures of the world could scarcely  make more inviting promises; one  expects a great deal from such a  prelude. Unfortunately, it must be  confessed at once that Dr. Rand's  very natural patriotism is far too enthusiastic. The 127 unknown poets  are not a very distinguished band.  They may, indeed, have been inspired "by all the stirring influences to  which Dr. Rand ascribes their poetical  fecundity; but the expression has  hardly realized the inspiration.  One opens the volume, for instance,  in search of the celebration of "the  virgin freshness and promise of the  country"���������a very commendable theme  for a Canadian���������and is met by Alexander McLachlan. describing an evening scene in  the clearing:  Yon cabins by  the forest side  ���������upposed to rhyme with "win a pure"  are difficulties that clamor for a  commentator. But here Is Mr. Chas.  Heavysege appealing to his heart:  Open, my heart, thy ruddy valves;  It is thy master calls;  Let me go down and curious trace  Thy labyrinthine halls.  Open, O heart, and let me view  The secrets of thy den:   .  Myself unto, myself now show  With  introspective  ken.  Far Too Generous  No, no; Dr. Rand's enthusiasm is  too generous. These are not verses  that should appear in any anthology,  however wide the limits. Nol* are  they otherwise than typical of the  whole volume;. there is an astonishing lack of form and distinction in  the entire body of Canadian verse, as  it is here displayed. In the matter  of metrical arrangement, could anything be less felicitous than the following, which is a complete contribution  in  two stanzas:  The sweet Star of the Bethlehem night  Beauteous guides  and  true.  And still to me and you  With only local, legendary light.  V  From   us, who hither   look   with   eyes  afar  From   constellations  of  philosophy,  All  light is from the    Cradle;     the  true star,  Serene o'er distance, in the Life we  .*��������� see.  -���������  Here thc broken meter of the first  verse is entirely readjusted in the  second; so that the piece as a whole,  presents a perfect jumble of irreconcilable sounds. And here, as so  often in this collection, subjects of the  deepest and most sacred spiritual import are treated so inarticulately that  a sensitive reader is positively paiu-  ed by the infelicity. Dr. Hand apologises for the omission of much which  lack of space forced him to forego.  We can only say, with regret, ttiat he  has, in our judgment,, printed far  too much, and that the result is' not  altogether complimentary to llw rrcs  ent condition of Canadian poe-.ry.���������  London Chronicle.  HAILSTORMS.  ger has from the bhginning ascribed  the successful results from his machine to the effects of the vortex  rings. In an official report of an  expert from the Imperial institute,  who was sent to investigate the ex-  eriments made by Mr. Stiger in 1897,  the following statement is made: "It  was shown that by the discharge of  a shot a vortex ring similar to the  common smoke ring is produced and  can be seen in reflected sunlight. The  ring rises rapidly with a distinct  whistling,which is audible at a great  distance. Observations showed that  this whistling could be heard for 15  seconds, and in calms for more than  20 seconds."  A swallow .which was once struck  by one of these vortex rings fell  dead, such was its tremendous force.  Mr. Stiger: estimates that the effectiveness of the shot and the shooting  apparatus from the duration of the  whisling of the vortex ring. Step by  step the size of the mortar, the depth  and breadth of the bore, the form and  height of the: barrel, the weight of  the powder, have been carefully determined by experiment, until a  most effective combination has been  attained. In some experiments, at  which I was present I saw the  vortex ring shoot upwards against  the clouds like a shot from a gun  barrel, and . distinctly heard tho  whistling for 20 to 28 seconds. The  astounding force of the vortex ring  was best demonstrated by the horizontal shot. A series of peculiar targets were placed at distances of -40,  60, 80 and 100 meters. When tho  vortex .ring struck the targats it  threw down poles which were braced  with heavy linen cloth, burst through  paper targets in which the paper had  a resistance of 2 kilograms, tore loose  cl'amps,-,.broke one clamp which was  3 centimeters long and 11-5 centimeters broad. A large bulldog which  was in tho way of the vortex ring  was tumbled over twice and lost all  desire  for   further observation*!.  In this mechanical power of the  vortex ring we have found the force  which may possibly influence The  process of hail formation. Unfortunately, as I have mentioned before,  we know too little of the process of  hail formation to be able to explain  more clearly' the action of the vortex  ring, which certainly exerts a considerable force to a height of from  1500 to 2000 meters.

This  year  a  Herald   representative  had the privilege of spending Dominion  day  at    Cardston,    the  business  centre of the Mormon colony located  on Lee's creek in Southern Alberta.  The village  itself has a  population  of about four or Ave hundred people,  has  three general  stores,  two hotels,  a  drug    store,    millinery    establishment, printing   oflice,   harness   shop,  two   blacksmith   6hops.   barber   shop,  ice  cream parlor,  Chinese restaurant  and a few other small shops.  The colony however numbers about  2500 people, mostly from Utah,    who  have   from   their  earliest   infancy   in  their   own   country   been   celebrating  the 4th  of July,   but being now  settlers of the Dominion they celebrate  the 1st instead.    The writer has had  the privilege   of   visiting    most      of  the towns of the Territories and being  present at-their holidays,but nowhere  has he seen a place where such   an   entertainment was put up.    In    the first  place just at daylight, the quiet of  the town was awakened by boom!  boom! as if the Chinese and Boers  had united thlr forces and had begun  to shell the town with their ordnance, but it was soon ascertained  that" the noise proceeded from rival  blacksmith shops, whose anvils had  been loaded to usher in the day with  a royal salute. From this hour forward the town seemed alive and by  8 or 9 o'clock the streets were crowded with the country people who had  brought their families to assist in the  celebration. Soon a procession of  gaily decorated floats stretching almost a mile in length appeared and  traversed the different streets of the  town. Among the most noticeable  features of the procession was a car  richly and tastefully decorated, drawn j Are all  transformed  and glorified!  announced greatly reduced rates to  the Winnipeg exhibition.

Russell and Campbell, the partisan members of the emergency food commission, constitutes  one of the gravest public scandals in  the history of Canada.  It was the manifest duty of every  member of the commission regardless  of party to expose the truth in the  interests of the country. These gentlemen labored hard to suppress the  truth in the interests of party. Their  conduct during thc enquiry was nothing short of a disgrace .and their  report  is quite  in  keeping.  Notwithstanding the evidence of  the manufacturer o: the food tested  at Kingston, the majority reported  that theDevlin food is the same as  Hatch's protose. Notwithstanding the  report of the government analylst.  who said the food bought was not a  concentrated food, and was not entitled to its name as proteid fond,  and was not worth the price paid,  the majority decided that the price  and the food were all right. Notwithstanding the fact that the department  has   I0.-.1   or   destrayce!   every   sample  rode the elected Dominion Queen at  tended by ten ladies in waiting each  representing a province or a territory  of the Dominion. The ladies were attired in ball room costumes. One lady  visitor, who had seen a good deal  of society in her day, remarked that  never ln her life had she seen 12  as pretty girls together before.  Another striking feature ot the procession waa the largest float In the  procession, loaded with children���������  Cardston's surest crop as the bishop  proudly remarked to the visitors.  Still another feature was a cavalcade of ladles and gentlemen to thc  number of 40 or 50 mounted on splendid horses. The ladles wore white  riding habits with jockey caps ot red.  white and blue. The gentlemen also  wore pretty uniforms of the same  colors.  The procession was marshalled by  an officer on a grey horse, wearing a  cockade hat and carrying a naked  sword���������a typical King Billy. The  band wagon, built expressly for the  occasion, would do credit to a circus  procession. ������-  After an hour and a half's parade  the procession halted at the assembly  hall or meeting house. Here patriotic  orations and speeches were delivered  Interspersed with musical selections  and recitations.  Lunch was then served, after which  the crowd adjourned to the race track  where ai programme of races and  sports was run off.

In 189G the Honorable Albert Stiger, mayor of Windisch Fiestritz, in  Styria, revived an old custom of the  preceding century, usually termed  "weather firing". Formerly the firing was for ordinary mortars, but  Mr. Stiger introduced several modifications. He found that by the use  of a funnel attached to the mortar  the efficiency of the shot could be  greatly increased. His machine was  constructed on the following lines;  A heavy block of! oak or tough wood  was hollowed out so that it could be  be fastened securely to the mortar by  iron clamps, and an iron funnel was  then screwed to the block of wood  The funnel is made of sheet iron1*  2 millimeters thick and has a diame  ter at the opening of 70 centimeters, f  while at the lower opening its width  is only 20 millimeters. In 1897 as  many as 36 of these firing stations  were established.  At first Mr. Stiger's experiments  were sneered at and made sport of  by both the scientific and unscientific. But' nevertheless the severity  of the hail, which every year since  the 70's had wrought great damage  in Styria, ceased in Windisch Friest-  ritz, while in the neighboring districts it became even more destruct  ive. Gradually the belief in the  ���������flicacy of "weather shooting" as a  protection from hail spread to the  wine growing districts ln the vicinity  of Styria. Here also the experiment  proved a great success, and were then  taken up in Lombardy, Piedmont, and  the other- provinces to the south.  Then the Italian deputy, Dr. E. Otta-  viri, visited Windisch Friestritz and  also became a convert to Stiger's system of weather shooting. He returned to Italy, and under his leadership  similar apparatus called Stiger cannon, were rapidly manufactured and  set up, especially in Tuscany and  Emilia; also an astonishing number  of shooting associations sprang up,  each with its individual station. In  the summer of 1899, the flrst in which  the cannon was used in Italy, no less  than 2000 stations were equipped on  the Stiger pattern, and all were very  active during the season. The Italians  in fact became so enthusiastic that  a. congress wa3 _ summoned and _ met  November 6-8, 1899, in Casale Mon-  ferato. At this congress the minister of agriculture was represented  by the under secretary of state, and  the ministers of war and the interior  also sent delegates. Five hundred  participants in the congress appeared  some of them the most distinguished  scientists of Italy. Mr. Stiger was  elected honorary president, and a  committee of four eminent professors,  representing Styria, Piedmont, and  Venice, were appointed to report on  the result of the Stiger method for  preventing damage from hall. The  committee unanimously agreed that  "if the shooting was commenced In  time the damage from tho hall was  always averted." A number of instances were cited showing that ln  tho towns where there was no  shooting the destructive hall continued unabated, whereas in tha  districts where the shooting  Ing was done no hall occurred.  In explaining the action of the  cannon two points are to be consider  ed���������the effect of the explosion and  the force of the vortex ring that  rises from the gun barrel. In the  sultry distressing calm that preceeds  vollent storms it Is almost a natural  necessity to make a noise and as  loud a noise as possible. One feels  that from the sultry calm before  the storm misfortune is to come, and  that by disturbing the stillness the  Misfortune may be turned away. Mr.  Stiger states that he was guided hy  this thought when he began his experiments in 1896. "The observations,"  ho says, "that every hailstorm is preceded by an absolute stillness! ln the  air, accompanied by heavy oppression  suggested to me the ldia of disturbing this calm which seemed essential to the formation of hall, and  therefore I tried 'woather shooting,'  which had been known for centuries."  That vibrations can destroy the  formation of hall has no foundation  In physics. As far as our knowledge  roaches, for we do not yot understand the hail-formlng process,  the explosion could not affect the process, cither through changes In the  clouds, or by premature freezing of  droplets through concussion, or  through a considerable concussion.  We must therefore turn to tho second hypothesis, that the effect of the  vortex ring from the cannon prevents  the formation of halt stones.

���ision   of  an   auxiliary steam engine

The supply i.s taken from a small
ci k north of Ihe railway at an elevation or about. 200 feet, above tlio track.
.���V wooden storage tank of about 50,000
,'alloiis capacity being situated at the
The water is conveyed by a short
length of S inch then by 0 inch converse lock jointed steel pipe to the
centre of the city and distributed by *1
inch pipe of a similar description and
by smaller wrought, iron pipe throughout, the greater part of t.he city.
The quantities and sizes of the piping
etc.. will be found a .taehed.
All the small piping with one small
exception is galvanized, and I think
that -10 years is not an excessive estimate of the life of the works.
As a coinniercial system it must be
very profitable in proportion to cost,
hut iis a protection against fire the
sinallness of the maiiib makes it of
very little service. The volume of
wilt pr in the stream is not sufficient to
justify any further expense in that
direction, but there is a stream about
���? of a mile from the station which is of
sufficient capacity and elevation to
unsure a good supply.
A 12-inch steel riveted pipe is the
cheapest and best for bringing it in
and a reservoir of sufficient size on tlie
high ground north of the railway and
about opposite to the centre of the
city will bu most effective.
As the distance is short n 14-inch
pipe to connect the reservoir to the
12-inch main ami extended to connect
with the. present pipes will give the
best results for the money expended.
In estimating the value of the works
as* luiw existing I have used the prices
ruling at the present*, time (which in
the case of piping, copper 'and m'etal
work generally are considerably higher
than when the works were constructed)
making what I consider a. fair reduction for depreciation for the
time they have been in use.
I have thc. honor to be, gentlemen.
Your obedient servant,
Vancouver. .B.C.,
