REPORT   OF  INSPECTOR  OF  DYKES.
Office of Inspector of Dykes,
Victoria, B.C., December 31st, 1913.
Hon.  Thomas Taylor,
Minister of Public  Works,   Victoria, B.C.
Sir,—I have the honour to submit the following report with reference to the maintenance
and management of the several dyking districts under my charge for the year 1913 :—
In the following table of the maximum freshet heights in the Fraser River the elevations
shown are referred to low water at Pitt River, the datum of which is 6.81 below that of the
Department of Public Works ; or, in other words, to bring the elevations given to those of the
Department of Public Works, add 6.81 to the former. Heretofore the gauge-readings in each
district were based on the datum of the district referred to, but had no connection with each
other. Through the courtesy of Mr. F. Pardoe Wilson, O.E., and officials of the Canadian
Northern Pacific Railway, opportunity has been afforded to bring the levels of the different
districts to the same datum.

As will be seen by reference to the above, the freshet reached its highest level about June
15th, but from about June 4th to July 5th it was at no time less than 2 feet below the
maximum.
The conditions this year were very similar to those which existed in 1911 as regards both
the height and duration of the freshet, and the following remarks in the annual report for that
year referring to the freshet of 1911 are also applicable to the freshet of 1913 : "This maintained high-water level of the river was due principally to the run-off from the Thompson,
caused by the exceptionally warm weather that obtained over the area of country tributary to
that river, the weather prevailing over the watershed of the northern reaches of the Fraser
remaining unusually cool. Had the warm weather extended over the latter district at any
time between the dates above mentioned, an extremely high flood would have resulted." 4 Geo. 5

Pumps.
On account of the exceptionally heavy rainfall during the pumping season, the consumption
of electrical energy was unusually great. The rainfall recorded at Coquitlam in June last was
in excess of that recorded in the same month during the fifteen years that meteorological
observations have been taken in that locality.
The following is a comparative statement of the hours' pumping at the several pumping
stations mentioned for the years 1912 and 1913 :—

During the past season two new pump-houses were built, and new electrically driven
pumping plants installed at Upper Coquitlam and Pitt Meadows No. 2 respectively, the former
replacing the old steam plant previously in use, and the latter replacing the plant operated by
gasolene. At Lower Coquitlam the old steam plant, including engine and boiler, was replaced
last year with an electric motor of 100 horse-power, which was about double the power that
could be developed by the former, but the old pump which heretofore was of sufficient capacity
to cope with conditions ordinarily existing was not changed. Owing, however, to the recent
establishment of industrial undertakings in Coquitlam District which require that the water
inside the dyke be maintained at a lower level than formerly, it was found that the pump
was unable, at times, to keep the water down as low as desired, owing to the unusually heavy
rains that were experienced during a portion of the pumping season.
It is contemplated, therefore, to replace the existing pump with one of much greater
capacity, for the operation of which the motor now in use has ample power.
In order to provide better facilities for subsoil drainage in Maple Ridge District, it is proposed, in compliance with the wishes of the land-owners interested, to install a subsidiary pump
at Maple Ridge Pumping Station for the purpose of taking the water inside the dyke down to
a level lower than that which can be maintained by the present pumps.
Sluice-gates.
At the close of last season work on the construction of five reinforced-concrete sluices
was under way, which with the concrete sluice constructed the previous year at Upper
Coquitlam effected the replacement with reinforced concrete of all the old wooden sluices in
the Pitt River Districts, with the exception of three—viz., one in Lower Coquitlam near
Boville Slough, and two in Maple Ridge District near the pumping station.
As it was reckoned there would be about sufficient time to replace these also before high
water, and as the contractors were willing, while their plant and materials were on the ground,
to carry out this work under the same conditions as those governing the original contract,
arrangements were made accordingly, and all the sluices were completed before the water rose
high enough to interfere with the work. 4 Geo. 5 Inspection of Dykes. S 9£
That the contractors, MacKenzie, Broadfoot & Johnston, under the immediate supervision
of A. R. Trowsse, carried out the work in a satisfactory manner was evidenced by the fact
that, although the freshet remained at a high stage for a much longer period than usual, there
were no signs of leakage through any of the gates, nor any appearance of seepage around the
sluices or through the newly filled-in earthwork required in reforming the dyke.
As the two wooden sluices at Chilliwack—one at the mouth of the Semiault River, and
the other at a diversion of that stream—were becoming unsafe through the decaying of the
timbers, they having been in use for about fourteen years, it was decided to replace them with
a four-gate reinforced-concrete sluice, having a capacity of discharge of about 50 per cent,
greater than the two old sluices combined. The new sluice to be located at the. site of the
sluice at the mouth of the Semiault River, and the one at the diversion to be filled in.
In response to an advertisement for tenders for the carrying-out of the proposed work,
bids complying with required conditions were received on August 13th, from the following
named contractors :—
Love & Shirley $2,894 00
Hodson & King    3,212 90
J. H. Parks      4.618 40
T. F. Sinclair & Co    3,976 80
MacKenzie, Broadfoot & Johnston    3,976 80
Robertson Bros    4,800 00
Jones Cornell Construction Co        3,493 00 <
The tender of Love & Shirley, being the lowest, was accepted.
According to the original design on which the contract was let, it was contemplated to
construct the concrete sluice on the timber foundation of the old sluice, as these timbers,
being constantly submerged, were and would remain perfectly sound, and this would bring
the floor of the sluice about to the same level as the bed of the Semiault, and obviate any
expense that might be incurred through encountering quicksand at a lower depth.
At the urgent request, however, of the land-owners interested, as expressed through their
local member and Reeve, the foundation was lowered 2 feet. This necessitated the lowering
also of the bed of the Semiault for a considerable distance, both above and below the sluice,
and on account of a quicksand formation it was necessary to construct retaining-walls of piles
and planking at the foot of the slopes of the river-banks to prevent them caving in and filling
the channel. The additional work over and above that included in the contract was paid for
at actual cost, with the addition of 10 per cent, for contractor's profit and use of tools. The
following is. a statement of the cost incurred :—
Work included in contract   $2,949 69
Force account and materials supplied on account of lowering
foundations, deepening river, and constructing retaining-walls     3,417   15
Total   $6,366 84
The reason advanced for lowering the sluice was that it might not form an obstruction to
draining the land as low as possible, when the contemplated work of deepening the Chilliwack
and Semiault Rivers for the purpose of affording better drainage facilities for the district shall
have been carried out.
Respectfully submitted,

REPORT OF THE CHIEF INSPECTOR OF MACHINERY
New Westminster, B.C., January 2nd, 1914.
The Honourable the Minister of Public Works,
Victoria, B.C.
Sir,—In accordance with the provisions of the "Boilers Inspection Act," I have the
honour to submit to you the Twelfth Annual Report of the operation of the steam-boilers and
machinery inspection service for the year ending December 31st, 1913.
The personnel of the service at present consists of the Chief Inspector, thirteen District
Inspectors, one clerk, and three stenographers, located as follows : Chief Inspector, four
Inspectors, one clerk, and one stenographer and typist at the head office in New Westminster
for District A; three Inspectors and one stenographer and typist in Victoria for District B;
one Inspector in Nelson for District C ; four Inspectors and one stenographer and typist in
Vancouver for District D ; and one Inspector in Revelstoke for District E. The additional
Inspector provided for in the Estimates, 1913, commenced duty July 16th, 1913.
During the year the following changes have been made : Mr. Kay was transferred from
Revelstoke to New Westminster, Mr. Worth from Victoria to Revelstoke, the new Inspector
going to Victoria.
The following is a summary of the work performed in the office of the Chief Inspector
during the year, exclusive of inspections and engineers' examinations, details of which will
be found in the reports of the Inspectors for the different districts and that of the Chief
Examiner —
Letters inward  6,632
Letters outward    6,842
Telegrams inward  118
Telegrams outward  109
Inspectors' monthly reports examined  152
New designs examined, calculated, and reported on  286
Amendments to designs calculated and reported on  257
Fees collected for designs $1,450.00
Fines collected for infractions of Act     $499 .50
Fines paid direct to Treasury by Government Agent $2,700.00
Number of miles travelled by Chief Inspector  2,200
I have to report one boiler-explosion, full particulars of which are given in the report of
the formal investigation attached hereto. Fortunately there was no loss of life nor personal
injury. This is the first explosion that has occurred since the inception of the inspection
service, June, 1899.
The number of accidents to boilers and engines is fully set forth in the District Inspectors'
reports.    There have been no accidents to boilers or engines resulting in personal injury.
Photograph No. 1 shows the results of riveting a piece of angle-iron to the inner
surface of the lower part of the back-head of a return-tubular boiler for the purpose of
attaching the longitudinal stays. This method was opposed by us for a number of years, but
the objection was withdrawn on the assurance of a number of the boiler-manufacturers that
their boilers with the riveted angle-iron had always been satisfactory.
A number of boilers was built having longitudinal stays attached to angle-plates, and
these plates riveted to the back-head. It has been found that four or five years' work
destroys the plate forming back-head, as the double thickness of metal will not allow the free
transmission of heat without raising the temperature of the plate beyond the safe limit.
The Inspectors have reported a number of these cases during the year, and on this account
the practice has been discontinued. If stays are to be attached to angle-iron, we now require
a 4-inch water-space between the angle-iron and the back-head. Photo   No.   1.  4 Geo. 5 Inspection of Machinery. S 97
The number of new boilers inspected during the year was 425, as compared with 621 for
1912. The number taken out of service as unfit for further use was forty-three, as compared
with twenty-eight for the year 1912.
The number of second-hand boilers imported is sixty-two, as compared with ninety-eight
for the year 1912 ; twenty-four of these were from Eastern Canada and thirty-eight from the
United States. The total number of boilers now on our books after deducting those taken
out of service is 5,256. Of these, 2,910 received complete inspection, 375 were inspected
externally only, and twenty-eight internally only, thus leaving 1,943 on which no inspection
was made.    Many of those not inspected were not in operation during the year.
The number of plates tested for new boilers was 448, of which eight were condemned as
unfit for use in boiler-construction.
The cruiser " Adanac " was used in connection with inspections in Districts A, B, and D.
A slight accident occurred off the Fraser River Sandheads, where, in a heavy sea, the engineer
was thrown against the engine. His clothing was caught by the governor-gear, which was
broken, and the inlet-valves put out of service by damage to the cam-shaft; temporary repairs
were quickly made with the spare parts, and the boat proceeded to New Westminster, where
a new gear-wheel was fitted. The total number of miles run was 4,078. The coal-oil used for
the engine, lamps, and all other purposes was 1,278 gallons, the average per mile for all
purposes being 0.313 gallons, and the average consumption for the engine 1.008 pints per
horse-power per hour.
In conclusion, I desire to thank you for your active interest in and support of this office.
I also wish to thank all the members of the staff for the efficient manner in which they have
carried out their work during the year.
Trusting that this report will meet with your approval.
I have, etc.,
John Peck, Chief Inspector.

Report of the Chief Engineer Examiner.
New Westminster, B.C., January 2nd,  1914
The Honourable the Minister of Public  Works,
Victoria, B.C.
Sir,—I have the honour to submit to you the following report with respect to the
examinations of candidates for engineers' certificates for the year ending December 31st,
1913 :—
During the year I have received 1,702 applications for examination for the different
grades of certificates.
On December 31st, 1912, I had on hand 173 applications, making a total of 1,875. Of
these, 1,220 have been examined; 326 applicants had their fees returned, as they had not the
practical qualifications required by the Act; twelve sent in applications without fees ; and
twenty-two were notified for examination three times, and as there was no response in any
case their application forms were placed on a special file to await inquiry by them. This
leaves on the "Accepted for Examination file" 122 application forms.

John Peck, Esq.
Chief Inspector of Machinery, New Westminster, B.C.
Sir,—I have the honour to submit to you the following report with respect to work done
by me during the year ending December 31st, 1913 : —
Throughout the year my time was occupied in carrying out the varied work relating to
this office—namely, examining, calculating, reporting, and registering designs of boilers, boiler
accessories, pipe plans, etc., examining engineers, and inspecting and testing boilers.
Since this Department (July, 1913) has issued new rules enforcing the registration of all
boiler accessories, the examination and registration of same means an increase in the amount
of work to be done in this office. I feel sure, however, that the step taken in this direction will
effect the result of compelling manufacturers to turn out boiler fittings of better design, made
of better and more suitable materials, and of better workmanship than those heretofore used.
Genuinely good boiler fittings will give better results and more satisfaction to the steam-plant
owner, make life easier for the engineer in charge, and contribute toward the greater safety for
the public.
Appended you will find a tabulated list of work done by me during the year.
Trusting this report will meet with your approval,
I have, etc.,

John Peek, Esq.,
Chief Inspector of Machinery, New Westminster, B.C.
Sir,—I have the honour herewith to present my report for the last three months of 1913
during which period I have been an Inspector in District A.
No accidents resulting in personal injury have occurred during this period, but one boiler
was seriously burned on the sheet over the fire, due to lubricating-oil being returned to the
boiler from the heating system. This matter was investigated by yourself and the engineer
suspended.
Three boilers were found with serious cracks on the lower part of the back-head behind
the angle-irons supporting the through stays. One boiler was found with seventeen cracks on
the lower part of the girth-seam; all of which had occurred since last inspection. Another
boiler was so badly corroded around the blow-down pipe that I put my test-hammer through
the sheet. This boiler was condemned. Still another was found with the top tube-sheet
cracked, the crack being several inches long. A new tube-sheet was ordered to be put in and
the boiler retubed.
These constitute the most serious defects found; others were of minor importance.
Trusting this report will meet with your approval,
I have, etc.,

John Peck, Esq.,
Chief Inspector of Machinery, New Westminster, B.C.
Sir,—Herewith I beg to hand you my report for the year 1913.
I have much pleasure in stating that no fatal accidents have occurred in this District
during the past year.
The accidents to boilers were due in most cases to the attempt to get too much out of the
plant, without taking the necessary precautions of keeping the boilers free from scale and dirt.
Investigations proved that the engineers in two cases were to blame, and their certificates were
therefore suspended.
The heating plants have been inspected and certified engineers placed in charge. Many
visits were paid in addition to inspection, in order to settle difficult questions personally on
the spot.
In placing this my report before you, I trust that on perusal it will be found that I have
used my best efforts to serve, and the past year's work will meet with your approval.
I have, etc.,

Sir,—1 have the honour to submit herewith my report for the year 1913.
Twenty-three boilers have been built under my supervision during the year. All the
plates used in the construction of same were tested, only two plates being rejected. When
the boilers were assembled the holes were inspected, and on completion all were subjected to
hydrostatic test.
I have only made forty-nine inspections of plants this year, my time being principally
occupied in the office, examining and calculating new designs for boilers, etc., submitted by
manufacturers. The number of designs has considerably increased during the last twelve
months.
I assisted you in making tests, drawings, and a small model of the plates of an exploded
vertical tubular boiler, No. 1075b. I also assisted in the examination of candidates for
engineers' certificates and general office routine.
Trusting my work has met with your approval,

Senior Inspector's Report, District B.
Victoria, B.C., January 2nd,  1914.
John Peck, Esq.,
Chief Inspector of Machinery, New Westminster, B.C.
Sir,—I have the honour to submit my report of the work done during the year 1913.
The staff of this office consists of Inspectors Duckitt and Clark, myself, and a stenographer ;
Mr. Clark being appointed in October to take the place of Inspector Worth, who was transferred to the Revelstoke District.
These Inspectors assisted me at the general examinations held tri-monthly in Victoria and
Nanaimo. Examinations were also held in Cumberland, Prince Rupert, and Headquarters.
Intermediate examinations were held each month in this office for the convenience of engineers
going to outlying parts of the district. The total number of candidates examined was 285, of
which number 228 passed, fifty-seven failing to secure the required percentage of marks.
The increase in the number of temporary and heating certificates issued in this district
was made necessary by the large number of heating plants coming under the "Inspection Act."
This lowered the percentage of unsuccessful candidates for certificates of all grades.
The inspections made by myself are fewer than those of the preceding year on account of
the office-work requiring more of my personal attention. The collections are considerably more
than the earnings, fewer accounts being carried over from 1913 to 1914.
Boilers inspected for the Provincial Government include those in the Parliament
Buildings, the Works Annex, Forestry Annex, Provincial Gaol, and other public institutions.
The most serious accident during the year was the explosion of steam-boiler No. 1075 in
August.    I sent a full report of this on September 20th, 1913.
At steam plant No. 1516 the blow-off pipe burst under steam-pressure. The fires were
drawn at once, no damage resulting to boiler-shell, and there was no personal injury.
At steam plant No. 1026 the piston-rod broke; the piston was blown through the
cylinder-head, wrecking the cylinder.    No one was hurt.
Steam plant No. 232 has a large fly-wheel, on periphery of which are cast-iron lugs, to
which tie-rods are attached. Two of these lugs broke, but the engineer observed this in time
to stop the engine before the fly-wheel burst.
On steam plant No. 679 the stop-valve failed owing to strain of settling of boilers, and
the strain set up by the impact of water in subduing the fire in the boiler-room roof. No one
was scalded by escaping steam, all getting away in time.
Steam-engine at plant No. 587 had a defective governor, which permitted engine to race,
causing fracture of driving-pulley, and damaging engine foundation to such an extent as to
necessitate rebuilding.
In December, on boiler No. 678, a " T " in the main steam-pipe burst, this being attached
to part of same equipment as previously reported on boiler No. 679, and was no doubt induced
by the same causes.
In December, at steam plant No. 218, the engine was badly damaged by the breaking of
the piston-rod in the cross-head, permitting the piston to go through rear head of the cylinder,
and smashing same.    No one was hurt.
Among the defects noticed during my inspections, the following might be worthy of note :
On several occasions I have found one or more suspension rods insecure, tending to induce
strain on circumferential and longitudinal seams, which would be conducive to leakage.
The extended use of oil-fuel has a tendency, from the higher temperatures obtained, to
strain the circumferential seams of return-tubular boilers, and in some cases I have recommended
the use of a brick arch over the flame, and extending about half the length of the boiler and
some 6 or 8 inches below the exterior of shell. The effect of this is to diffuse the heat advantageously, and to prevent the direct impingement of heat on the shell-plate, yet producing
ample steam from the radiant heat of the arch. 4 Geo. 5 Inspection of Machinery. S 109
Sometimes it is even desirable to have the protective pier for the blow-off extended to the
side-walls, with arched openings at the bottom, thus lowering the flame, reducing the first
action of the shell-plate, and carrying the heat along to effective action in the tubes.
Another point worthy of note is that the high temperature of oil-fuel has in several cases
fused the red-brick filling of the setting, so that it has run and exuded through cracks in the firebrick lining, leaving the wall in a very unstable condition. I would therefore recommend close
observation of all such walls, more especially when the supporting piers are part of the walls
themselves.
I also think it decidedly advisable that, once a year at least, all main steam-piping should
be taken apart and the flange connections tested, thus checking the possibility of undue strain
on fittings.
Acknowledging with pleasure the assistance of my colleagues in conducting the work of
this district, and trusting that this report meets with your approbation,
I have etc.,

John Peck, Esq.,
Chief Inspector of Machinery, New Westminster, B.C.
Sir,—I have the honour to submit my report for the year ending December 31st, 1913.
During the year I have assisted with the engineers' examinations in Victoria, Nanaimo,
Cumberland, and Prince Rupert, and also examined engineers in various outlying places.
The remainder of the year I was employed in inspecting steam plants in nearly all parts of
this district, and found most of them in a good and efficient condition. The working-pressure
was reduced on fifteen boilers. This was mostly due to corrosion, crack plates, and general
poor condition. There were twenty-one boilers not subjected to the hydrostatic test, by reason
of the plants being shut down and in most cases deserted. One locomotive portable boiler was
condemned owing to its very poor condition.
In December, while testing boiler No. 679b, a cast-iron tee in the steam-pipe burst; this
was most probably caused by water-hammer, as there was a little steam-pressure in the pipe
due to a leaky stop-valve on another boiler.    No one was hurt.
A fire was started under boiler No. 515b the day after it had been inspected, there being
no water in boiler at the time ; it appears that some unknown person had opened the blow-off
cock during the night, but this was found out shortly after the fire had been started, and the
boiler was slightly damaged.
All minor defects are given in the tabulated report.
Trusting this report will meet with your approval,
I have, etc.,

Revelstoke, B.C., January 2nd,  1914.
John Peck, Esq.,
Chief Inspector of Machinery, New Westminster, B.C.
Sir,—I have the honour to submit to you the following report on work in Victoria District
up to December 23rd, 1913, when I was transferred to District E :—
Two boilers were considered unfit for further use. One was an old return-flue boiler on
which the lap-seams were opening out; the other, a small vertical boiler, was destroyed by
internal corrosion.
In a local hotel a vertical-tubular boiler used for kitchen purposes was damaged by shortness of water. The boiler was in charge of a certificated engineer and a fireman on alternate
shifts. The accident happened while the fireman was in charge, but he could give no satisfactory account as to the cause of the same. Repairs to this boiler had previously been ordered,
but as a result of the accident it had to be replaced by a new one.
During the year I have taken a number of prosecutions under section 53 of the Act. As
I have already reported very fully to you on this matter, it does not seem necessary to again
do so here.
I have visited a number of camps beyond the end of the railroad-track, where travelling
with a test-pump, etc., is difficult and expensive. The progress of railroad-construction is,
however, improving this rapidly.
Minor boiler defects are given in the tabulated report form.
Trusting this report will meet with your approval,
I have, etc.,

John Peck, Esq.,
Chief Inspector oj Machinery, New Westminster, B. C.
Sir,—I have the honour to submit the following report for the year ending December
31st, 1913 :—
The work in this district has been much the same as in former years; engineers' examinations being held at different times in Fernie, Cranbrook, and Nelson; once in Princeton and
Tulameen. In the Fernie District almost every applicant appeared for examination, and it
would seem to be much more satisfactory to hold examinations every three months at points
like Cranbrook and Fernie than to hold the examinations over for longer periods. Many of
the applicants are constantly changing places, and often, if the examinations are delayed too
long, the letters advising them to appear for examination do not reach them.
I am pleased to state there was only one accident that resulted in personal injury. The
engineer of plant No. 547 decided that he would make a siren whistle out of babbit metal.
The rotating part was made after the style of a Parson's turbine, and when the steam was
turned on the stress set up by the centrifugal force was too great for the strength of the
material, and the wheel flew into small pieces. One of the pieces entered the engineer's
shoulder, carrying parts of his clothing with it, inflicting a nasty wound. S 118 Public Works Report (1912-13).
The piston of the engine in plant No. 638 broke and carried away cylinder-head. No one
was hurt.
Two old boilers in a small sawmill were inspected for the first time, the plant having been
closed down for several years. One of the boilers was found to be in very bad condition, there
being four cracks in the furnace, one 7 inches in length. The staying of this boiler was also
unsatisfactory and ought not to have been allowed more than 45 K>. working-pressure. The
other boiler was also in poor, although not dangerous, condition, and the owner decided to
discard the more dangerous one and use the other temporarily until a new one could be installed.
He informed me that the former owner had carried 120 B). on both boilers.
Two sawmills were burned during the year ; in one case the boilers escaped damage, and
in the other they were only slightly injured. Quite a number of the sawmills did not operate
as long as usual, and some did not commence operations at all. The boilers in the former
were, in some cases, inspected after the mills closed down, and this has had some effect on the
amount of inspection fees collected.
Information was laid against one company for employing an engineer who had no British
Columbia certificate.    They were found guilty and the minimum penalty imposed.
Appended you will find tabulated report for the year.
I have, etc.,

Inspector of Steam-boilers, District C. S 120 Public Works Report (1912-13).
Senior Inspector's Report,  District D.
Vancouver, B.C., January 2nd, 1914.
John Peck, Esq.,
Chief Inspector of Machinery, New West-minster, B.C.
Sir,—I have the honour to submit the following report for the year 1913 :—
During the year there have been no serious accidents reported in this district; the only
one case resulting in damage was that of a boiler in one of the Vancouver incinerators. This
was caused by the engineer allowing the water to get too low.
The present falling-off in business has had the effect of curtailing the number of new
boilers installed in this district, and has almost enabled us to keep up to date with other
inspections and the engineers' examinations, but we were unable to complete the inspection of
logging-boilers, as we were unable to secure the " Adanac " sufficiently early in the season.
We have inspected all the heating-boilers in this district, classified them and have had
safety appliances made efficient in nearly all cases. The engineers operating these heating-
boilers are providing themselves with temporary certificates as per instructions, and we hope
during the coming year to get the majority of them examined for permanent certificates.
My work during the past year having been almost entirely in the office arranging work for
Inspectors and keeping up the office record, I have nothing out of the ordinary to report. I
wish, however, before closing this report, to thank through you the individual Inspectors of
this district for the harmony and good-fellowship showing in their dealings with each other
and with the public during the year, and also for the willingness shown to do all in their power
to make the Act work smoothly when striking the rough places.
All of the above is respectfully submitted.
I have, etc.,
Geo. O. Madigan,
Senior Inspector of Steam-boilers, District D.

Inspector's Report, District D.
Vancouver, B.C., January 2nd, 1914.
John Peck, Esq.,
Chief Inspector of Machinery, New Westminster, B.C.
Sir,—I have the honour to forward you my report for the year 1913.
During the year I have been mostly employed on the outside work of this district and
the examination of engineers, the latter taking up at least two months of the year.
Inspections were carried out at all the logging camps located between Seymour Inlet and
Heriot Bay, the " Adanac " being very successfully used for this purpose. Two months and
a half were occupied in making these inspections, and owing to the season being far advanced
it was decided that we return to Vancouver, leaving at least half the log-haul boilers in this
district not inspected. In future I would suggest that the " Adanac " be placed at the disposal
of this office not later than April 1st.
I would also note that the month of November was wholly taken up with the special
inspection of eight boilers similar to the one which exploded at Deep Bay and built to design
No. 1319; the almost continuous run of bad weather being accountable for the large amount
of time taken up.
I am pleased to inform you, so far as I could ascertain, there have been no accidents in
any of the logging camps in this district. My tabulated report shows the extent of work done
during the year, and I trust you will find it satisfactory.
Three cases were undertaken during the year against logging companies for the operation
of log-haul boilers without certificated engineers. In the case taken at Quathiaski Cove the
defendants were found guilty. The Justice of the Peace imposed the payment of the costs of
the case, instead of the minimum fine as provided in the Act.
In the cases taken up at Alert Bay the company was found to be "Not Guilty," but in
the cases against the men operating these boilers the results were different, they in each case
being fined $100 and costs.
I have, etc.,
F. Bath,
Inspector of Steam-boilers, District D.

Inspector's Report, District D.
Vancouver, B.C., January 2nd, 1914.
John Peck, Esq.,
Chief Inspector of Machinery, New Westminster, B.C.
Sir,—-1 beg herewith to submit my report for thq year ending 1913.
The number of inspections and the number of defects have not varied greatly from last
year. A few safety-valves were found defective in construction. These were in nearly all
cases upon heating-boilers, and as a rule were due to lack of stopper-rings on the compression-
nuts. In five cases there was" no means of inserting the stopper-ring because the square was
filed on the end of the screw, thus leaving it possible to obtain an indefinite amount of pressure upon the boiler.
The fact that the number of inspections is so nearly the same as last year, in spite of the
general decline in business, is accounted for by the number of heating-boilers added to our list
and finished in the new year.
The necessity for an automobile is as apparent as ever, and I would recommend that one
be granted this office if it is at all possible.
In closing my report, I wish to thank my colleagues for their assistance and goodwill
during the year.
Trusting you will find this report satisfactory,
I have, etc.,

John Peck, Esq.,
Chief Inspector of Machinery, New Westminster, B.C.
Sir,—Enoiosed please find my report in tabulated form of work done during 1913, also a
summary of defects met with during that period.
A comparison with that of 1912 shows an increase of inspections completed, and also a
corresponding increase of defects. The new work marks a decrease all down the series, which
is in keeping with the dullness of trade that has been generally felt during the year.
Nothing special worthy of mention or of general interest has happened in regard to
inspection-work. Some trouble was met with here and there in connection with alterations to
heating plants installed prior to inspection, but at the end of 1913 all such plants were found
fairly in accordance with the rules, and little trouble regarding which may be looked for in the
future.
This report is respectfully submitted.
I have, etc.,

Inspector's    Report,    District    E.
Revelstoke, B.C., January 2nd, 1914.
John Peck, Esq.,
Chief Inspector of Machinery, New Westminster, B.C.
Sir,—I have the honour to submit to you my report for the first nine months of 1913,
during which time I was an Inspector in District E.
No serious accidents occurred during this period, either to the machinery or to the
men in attendance.
Of the five dangerous defects noted, two were seriously cracked back-heads due to the
plates being constantly overheated. This overheating was accounted for by the angle-irons, to
which the lower stays were attached, preventing a sufficiently rapid transfer of heat to the
water in the boiler. In another case the setting was so defective that the boiler was on the
point of falling down. The fourth case was that of a boiler so badly corroded externally as
to require a large amount of the shell-plate to be cut out and a patch put on. In the fifth
case a cast-iron heating-boiler had three sections cracked.
A small vertical boiler was condemned as unfit for use, on account of excessive external
and internal corrosion. This boiler had not been in use since the "Boilers Inspection Act"
came into force. Two small locomotive boilers were slightly damaged through low water.
One feed-water heater was condemned. It was found badly corroded internally along the
longitudinal seam.    The plate was almost eaten through over quite an extensive area.
During the year I held examinations in Kamloops, Vernon, Golden, and Revelstoke. On
September 27th I was relieved of charge of the district by Mr. Worth.
Trusting this report meets with your approval,
I have etc.,

Inspector's Report, District E.
Revelstoke, B.C., January 2nd, 1914.
John Peck, Esq.,
Chief Inspector of Machinery, New Westminster, B.C.
Sir,—I have the honour to submit herewith my annual report of work done in Revelstoke,
since I was transferred at the end of September.
No accidents involving personal injuries have yet come under my notice. I have visited
nearly all plants around the Fort George District and have made a considerable number of
partial inspections, but owing to the condition of the weather and other reasons, very few of
them were completed, and the fees have been left over for collection with those of 1914.
Travelling on the Cariboo Road in autumn is very difficult, and the application of hydrostatic
tests to boilers in the north is impracticable during the winter months. It will be necessary
to inspect all boilers in the Fort George District in summer to ensure a proper inspection.
A complaint to the effect that a condemned boiler was being operated near Fort George was
investigated, and found to be incorrect. Three cases of infraction of section 53 of the Act
were taken into Court and the minimum penalty recovered; other cases were withdrawn. A
full separate report on this has been sent to you already. A new lighting and heating plant
has been installed in the hotel at Fort George, but inspection of this is not completed. At
Kamloops a new Babcock and Wilcox boiler has been installed at the City Power Station
and in the Old Men's Home. Two return-tube boilers for heating purposes are being installed.
Much of the territory covered by me during the year has been away from the railroads,
therefore slow and expensive.
Trusting that this report will meet with your approval,
I have, etc.,
H. Worth,
Inspector of Steam-boilers, District E. S 132

A small locomotive fell over the grade at Fort Fraser, and turned upside down ; the tank
and chimney are said to be the only parts damaged. A locomotive near Fort George fell into
the river, where it will remain until the river is clear of ice.

"BOILERS    INSPECTION    ACT."
REPORT OF FORMAL INVESTIGATION No. 1.
EXPLOSION FROM BOILER No. 1075b, DESIGN No. 1319.
Office of the Chief Inspector of Machinery,
New Westminster, B.C., January 2nd, 1914.
The Honourable the Minister of Public Works,
Victoria, B.C.
Sir,—I h\ave the honour to submit the following report of a formal investigation made by
me relative to this explosion. As a result of the investigation, I hope to lay before you at an
early date some suggestions as to the increase of the factor of safety on lap-seam boilers, and
also changes in the method of plate-testing.
EXPLOSION FROM LOGGING-BOILER No. 1075b, DESIGN No. 1319.
Date and Place of Explosion.
The explosion occurred at about 6.40 a.m. on Thursday, August 14th, 1913, at Deep Bay,
Vancouver, B.C.
Name and Address of the Owners.
The boiler was at the time owned by the Vancouver Timber and Trading Company of
Vancouver, B.C.
Persons killed or injured.
No person was killed or injured by the explosion.
Particulars regarding the Design.
The boiler was No. 1075b, build to registered design No. 1319. The design was submitted
by the Victoria Machinery Depot Company on October 15th, 1909, for the Empire Manufacturing Company of Vancouver B.C., to be operated under the British Columbia " Inspection
Act," at a working-pressure of 160 ft>. per square inch, the construction proposed being stated
in the specification (Exhibit la) and shown on drawing (Exhibit 1.)
The design was passed and a report sent to the Victoria Machinery Depot Company on
October 19th, 1909, allowing 155 lb. per square inch, if shell-plates were 60,000 lb. tensile
strength, to 167 lb. per square inch for shell-plates of 65,000 lb. tensile strength.
A copy of the design, register sheet, and specification were sent to Mr. Baxter, the Senior
Inspector of the Victoria District, who acted as Engineer Surveyor during construction.
The boiler was built by the Victoria Machinery Depot Company, Victoria, B.C, and
completed on August 15th, 1910. It was therefore just over two years old when the explosion
occurred.    To date there have been ten boilers built to this design. 4 Geo. 5 Inspection of Machinery. S 143
Description of Boiler No.  1075b and Particulars relating to its construction.
Mr. Baxter, the Government Inspector, was notified by the Victoria Machinery Depot
Company that the plates were ready for inspection, and inspections and tests as provided by
the " Inspection Act " were made on June 27th, 28th, and 29th, 1910, on plate No. A80-694
and plate No. A80-695 for heads and fire-box, and plate A78-444 and plate A78-445 for shell,
all manufactured by the Calderbank Steel Works, of Calderbank, Scotland. The physical
properties of these plates are shown on the test sheets signed by Thomas Smith, Inspector for
James Dunlop & Company, Ltd. (Exhibit 2).
As the Inspection Department does not have a testing-machine for tensile strengths, the
tensile strength is taken either from the plate-maker's stamp on the plate or from the certificate
of inspection made at the steel-works. In this case the plates were numbered, and the results
of tests given on the certificate were taken for the calculation of the working-pressure. Mr.
Baxter made the bending tests from vouchers left on the side of the plate for that purpose.
The test strips were bent double and hammered down on themselves as required by subsection
(F), section 17, of the Rules for Inspection, without showing cracks or flaws in the material.
Examinations of the workmanship were made from time to time by Inspectors S. Baxter and
J. D. Kay, and on August 15th, 1910, the boiler was finally examined, the hydrostatic test of
240 lb. per square inch applied, and it was passed and stamped for 160 lb. per square inch
working-pressure by Mr. Kay.
The boiler was afterwards shipped to the Empire Manufacturing Company at Vancouver,
B.C., where it was fitted to a logging-engine. The fittings were examined aud passed by
Inspector P. A. Goepel on September 16th, 1910. See copies of affidavit of the manufacturer
(Exhibit 3) and the Inspector's first annual report (Exhibit 4).
Particulars of Operation.
The machine was sold to the Patterson Timber Company and leased by them to Messrs.
Bennett and Walker, of Saltspring Island. The Patterson Timber Company sold the logging-
donkey to the Vancouver Timber and Trading Company about May, 1911, it still being
operated by Messrs. Bennett and Walker. On August 12th, 1911, it was taken over from
Messrs. Bennett and Walker by the Fraser Logging Company and operated at Fulford Harbour
until October 15th, 1912, where it was inspected by Mr. Baxter September 2nd, 1911, and
September 19th, 1912.    (For copies of reports, See Exhibits 5 and 5a).
It was taken over from the Fraser Logging Company by Mr. Geo. W. Doane, of Mud
Bay, Vancouver Island, where it was operated by him until July 25th, 1913. At this time it
was required by the Vancouver Timber and Trading Company for use at their camp at Deep
Bay, Vancouver Island, B.C., where it was in use until the date of the explosion, August 14th,
1913.
Particulars and Dates of Repairs.
While the boiler was being operated by the Fraser Logging Company the water used was
bad, and the deposit between the tubes on the top of the fire-box made it necessary to remove
and renew about thirty tubes on July 25th, 1913. When the boiler was taken over from Mr.
Doane by the Vancouver Timber and Trading Company, forty-seven tubes were taken out
and about 5 inches of deposit was removed from the furnace-crown.
At the same time, after the repairs were completed and the boiler steamed up, it was
found that the pressure-gauge was incorrect, and from the evidence of the engineer, together
with the tests made later, it would appear that when the gauge showed 145 %. there would be
180 H>. on the boiler.    The old gauge was rejilaced by a new one at once.
Nature of the Explosion.
The explosion was very violent. The men at the camp stated that they first thought it
was an explosion of dynamite stored in the railway-construction powder-house close at hand.
The buildings were shaken and the paper files in the office were thrown from their hangers on
the wall and the papers strewn on the floor.
The shell-plate appeared to have first ruptured longitudinally at the middle of the length
between the upper stays and the top of the boiler. The sheet on one side of the boiler was
torn from end to end through the outer plate near the edge of the inner lap, except that part S 144 Public Works Report (1912-13).
which was stiffened by the fire-box stays where the fracture ran along the line of the rivet-
holes, and that part which was stiffened by the upper head where the fracture ran out away
from the inner lap for a distance equal to four rivet-pitches.
On the opposite side of the boiler the plate was ruptured along the line of the inner lap
of the longitudinal seam from a point opposite the upper row of stays to a point opposite the
third rivet from the top of the boiler where the rupture ran into that rivet-hole, and along the
line of the other two to the end of the plate.
The shell-plates in straightening out (due to the escape of steam through the vertical
openings) were torn in the circumferential direction through various stay-bolt holes, through
the upper row of rivet-holes where the shell-plate was riveted to the fire-box and the fire-door
ring ; part of the circumferential rupture taking place through the line of rivet-holes where the
fire-box was attached to the shell-plate; then on through part of the furnace-plate and back
into the rivet-holes.
At the top of the boiler the circumferential rupture was partly through the shell-plates
and partly through the upper tube-plate, as shown by Photo No. 1 and Drawings Nos. 1 and
2, Exhibits 6, 12, and 13.
Boiler-plate A78-444 (Photo No. 1, Exhibit 6) was projected 405 feet from where the
explosion occurred; plate A78-442 (Photo No. 2, Exhibit 6) was projected 570 feet.
The fire-box, a number of the tubes, and part of the upper tube-sheet (Photos Nos. 3, 4,
and 5, Exhibits 7 and 7A) after being torn from the frame fell back into the position shown
on location Drawing A, Exhibit 9, which indicates position of logging-donkey on the pier, and
the location of a number of the parts after the explosion.
Cause of the Explosion.
The explosion was due to weakening of the shell-plates at the two longitudinal seams, one
of which was on each side of the boiler, running from end to end in a straight line.
The outer lap of each plate was found to have been cracked on the inside from a point
opposite the top row of fire-box stays to a point about 9 inches from the top of the boiler.
The crack showed a gradual increase in depth from each end to the centre, where it extended
to about two-thirds the thickness of the plate, leaving only about \ inch of solid metal. These
lap-seam cracks gradually developed until the remaining solid metal was unable to resist the
stress due to the steam-pressure when the explosion occurred.
General Remarks.
The boiler which exploded was of the vertical log-haul type used at the time on a pier at
Deep Bay, B.C., to haul the logs into the water so that they could be made into booms.
After the explosion the camp book-keeper left on the first boat for Vancouver to report to the
Company, they in turn reporting to this office on Saturday, August 16th, 1913.
I made arrangements to go to the camp on the company's tug boat which left Monday
night, taking Inspector J. Downie with me. We arrived at 4 p.m. on Tuesday, August
19th, 1913, and found the parts of the boiler and engine as indicated on Drawing A,
Exhibit 9.
The pieces of shell and fire-box sheets were carefully examined at the fracture, which
clearly indicated that the sheets at the lap-seams had been cracked for some time, while the
failure at all other parts of the sheet showed that the force of the explosion had torn the
sheets through parts not previously cracked, so that there was no doubt or difficulty in coming
to the conclusion that the hinging action due to the variation in steam-pressure acting on the
shell-plates at the longitudinal joint, where the radius of curvature differs from that at other
parts of the shell, caused the parts to crack along the line of maximum movement.
Once the crack was started in the centre of the length of joint it was, of course, a matter
of time only until the crack extended lengthwise to points where there was little or no hinging
action, due to the resistance offered by the fire-box stays at one end and the upper head or
tube-plate at the other end; and as the crack extended lengthwise it also penetrated the
plate, until finally the solid metal left was unable to withstand the ordinary steam-pressure.
While it was easy to determine the direct cause of the explosion, we realized that in the
interest of public safety we must, if possible, determine the cause of the deterioration of the
shell-sheets leading to the development of the original cracks. 4 Geo. 5 Inspection of Machinery. S 145
Considering that we have hundreds of log-haul boilers of similar designs working with the
same factor of safety, and that a great many have been in use for ten years or more without
showing signs of weakness, it was evident that our investigations should proceed along two
lines : First, to trace the working of the boiler; and, second, to make physical and chemical
tests and microscopic examination of the shell-plates.
From the engineer's evidence we learned that on the day of the explosion he went to light
the fire as usual at 6 a.m. He tested the water-level by the double shut-off method, and found
3 inches of water in the gauge-glass. At 6.10 a.m. he half closed the damper and returned to
the camp for breakfast, leaving at 6.35 a.m. to return to the boiler, and he had gone about
200 feet when the explosion occurred. The escaping steam prevented him from seeing anything
except tubes, the smoke-stack, and parts of the boiler which were projecting above the steam-
line some 300 feet in the air. After a few minutes he went over to the pier where the machine
had stood and found the parts of the boiler and engine distributed as shown by the Drawing A,
Exhibit 9, and Photo Nos. 1 to 5, Exhibits 6, 7, and 7 A. The boiler was last washed out by
him on August 10th, 1913, and was used every day until it exploded.
The safety-valve always blew off at a pressure of 158 to 162 lb. He had never needed to
use the easing gear as the valve worked well, only blowing back about 2 ft), and closing with
a snap. The safety-valve had operated twice during the afternoon on August 13th. When
questioned, the engineer said that the safety-valve was not blowing off as he was going towards
the boiler just before the explosion, and he had expected to find, as usual, 100 to 110 H>.
pressure.  .
He took the machine over from Mr. G. W. Doane's camp on July 25th, 1913. It was
then very dirty inside and rusty on the outside, looking as if it had not been well cared for.
Numbers of the tubes leaked, forty-seven were removed, a lot of mud taken out, and new tubes
fitted to replace old ones.
He noticed that that the steam-gauge pointer stood at 15 lb. when there was no pressure
on the boiler, and when the pressure was raised and the safety-valve blew off steam, the gauge
would indicate 140 to 145 ft. instead of 160 lb. He therefore came to the conclusion that the
steam-gauge was unreliable and asked the camp foreman to get a new one. This was done at
once, and when the new gauge was fitted it was found that the safety-valve did not blow at
160 ft., and he says he slackened the adjusting-screw one and a half turns to get the valve to
blow at 160 ft.
He states that there were no leaks at any part of the boiler after the new tubes were put
in. He considered it one of the best boilers he had ever operated, and the explosion was an
" awful surprise " to him.
Mr. Mercier had a special logging-donkey engineer's certificate, No. 6779. He has had
twelve years' experience as engineer, three of which have been on logging donkey-engines.
With a view to determinate the physical and chemical properties of the plate, I had them
marked off as shown by Drawing No. 1, Exhibit 12, and cut along the lines indicated, and
with these tests strips experiments were carried out as follows :—
Experiment No. 1 : Bending test, strip A. 1 B. Bent across the grain, the end of the
strip nearest the explosion fracture bent through 79 degrees when it commenced to break, and
at 96.5 degrees fracture was complete. At opposite ends of strip fracture commenced at 137.5
degrees.    No further bending made.
Experiment No. 2 : Bending test, strip A. 2 B. Bent across the grain, the end nearest
the explosion fracture bent through 179 degrees when it suddenly broke almost through the
plate. There was no sign of failure until this point was reached. No further bending. At
opposite end of strip fracture was sudden and complete at 97 degrees. No sign of failure until
this point was reached.
Experiment No. 3 : Bending test, strip A. 7 B. Bent with the grain, both ends of strip
went through 180 degrees and were hammered down solid without showing cracks or flaws.
Experiment No. 4 : Bending test, strip B. 14 B. Bent across the grain, the end of strip
next to the explosion fracture showed first sign of failure at 115.5 degrees ; this was sudden
and complete at 124 degrees. At opposite end, first sign of fracture at 161.5 degrees; at 180
degrees, with \ inch space between parts of plate, it broke completely through one-half of the
width of the strip; from the end of this fracture 5/8 inch in width of plate it was sound ;
then fracture commenced again from one-quarter to one-third the thickness of the strip, and
out to the other edge. No further attempt made to hammer down flat.
10 S 146 Public Works Report (1912-13).
Experiment No. 5 : Bending test, strip B. 18 B. 1. Bent across the grain. First test
was made at end next to explosion fracture and just along the line coinciding with the edge of
the inner lap, in the direction opposite to the way the plate was bent in the rolls. First sign
of fracture shown at 54.5 degrees, and at 90 degrees the strip broke suddenly. At the opposite
end of strip bending in the same direction as the plate was rolled to form the boiler, two
fractures showed 3/16 inch apart at 89.5 degrees, and at 161.5 degrees the fracture was
sudden and complete.
Experiment No. 6 : Bending test, strip B. 12 B. 1. Bent with the grain of the plate,
both ends perfect bends through 180 degrees hammered down close, with no sign of cracks or
flaws.
Experiment No. 7 : Bending test, strip B. 18 B. 2. Bent across the grain. First test
bent in the same direction as the plate was rolled to form the boiler. At 135 degrees slight
crack at edge of plate; at 156 degrees crack across the outer surface of strip 1/8 inch deep;
at 180 degrees with ends of plate ^ inch apart crack J inch deep. At first attempt to hammer
down the strip suddenly broke.
Experiment No. 8 : Bending test, strip D. 15 B. Bent across the grain. The end next
to the explosion fracture first showed signs of failure at 91.5 degrees, and at 116 degrees
broke suddenly. At the opposite end first sign of fracture at 75 degrees, and at 120 degrees
bending was stopped to show the sudden separation of the metal to the extent of ^ x ^ inch
deep, while the balance of the metal looked well on the edge of the strip, but T5F inch in from
the edge the fracture extended quite half through the plate. This specimen looked very bad.
(Photo No. 10.)
Experiment No. 9 : Bending test, strip D. 25 B. Bent across the grain. At the end
next to explosion fracture first sign of crack showed at 65 degrees. Bending continued to 166
degrees, fracture about two-thirds the thickness of the strip; it was left at this angle to show
nature of fracture. At opposite end, bent through 127 degrees when first sign of fracture was
shown; at 180 degrees, with ends -J inch apart, failure sudden and complete.
Experiment No. 10 : Bending test, strip D. 18 B. Bent with the grain of the plate.
At both ends the bends were complete through 180 degrees hammered down flat, without
showing cracks or flaws.
Experiment No. 11 : Bending test, strip D. 28 B. Bent across the grain. At 155
degrees, without showing previous cracks, it broke suddenly.
Experiment No. 12 : Bending test, strip D. 29 B. Bent with the grain of the plate, both
ends perfect bends through 180 degrees hammered down close, without showing cracks or flaws.
Experiment No. 13 : Vibrating test, strip B. 18 B. 2. Bending across the grain, this
strip was vibrated through 4 degrees on each side of the centre line or 8 degrees for the complete backward and forward movement. At the thirtieth complete vibration the strip showed
a crack at the edge, and at the forty-second vibration the strip broke.
Experiment No. 14 : Vibrating test, strip B. 1 B, 1-1/8 inches wide by 13/32 inch thick,
bending with the grain. This strip was vibrated through 8 degrees, as in experiment No. 13,
and at the forty-seventh vibration it showed a slight crack across the strip, and at the sixty-
second vibration it broke.
The bending-test strips were all prepared by shearing the strip from the sheet, and
grinding the shear edges on the emery-wheel in the direction of the length of the strip and
slightly rounding off the sharp corners, thus : — /
Experiment No. 15 :    Tensile test, strips—
A. 4 T.    Pulled across the grain.
A. 7 T.    Pulled with the grain.
B. 6 T.    Pulled across the grain.
B. 9 T.    Pulled with the grain.
D. 10 T.    Pulled with the grain.
D. 14 T.    Pulled across the grain.
These tests were made by Robert Hunt & Company, Ltd., Bureau of Inspection Tests and
Consultation, London, England; Montreal, Toronto, and Vancouver. (See report, Exhibits 11
and 11 A).
Exhibit 10 shows a photograph of bending-test strip D. 15 B. This clearly indicates the
inequality of the material even within the width of the strip, 1|- inches, as one side has cracked
two-thirds of the thickness of the plate and opened up 5/16 inch, while the other side shows
slight crack only.    On the left-hand side is shown the nature of the fracture at the other end 4 Geo. 5 Inspection of Machinery. S 147
of the strip, which commenced at 91.5 degrees and was complete at 116 degrees. The piece of
plate in the centre is a part of strip D. 9 M., showing the nature of the explosion fracture.
On the right-hand edge of this strip the solid metal is clearly indicated, showing it to be about
1/16 inch in thickness, except at the bottom and at a place near the top of the strip, where the
old fracture shows almost through the plate. This is characteristic of the fracture of both
plates, except as we approach the upper head at one end, and the fire-box stays at the other,
the solid metal increases in thickness.
Experiment No. 16 : Chemical analysis. A part of each sheet as shown on Drawing No.
1, Exhibit 12, was analysed. Results are shown on Exhibit 14, and indicate an excess of
sulphur beyond that allowable under the Rules for Inspection, section 17, to the extent of
0.011 per cent, and 0.026 per cent.
Steel boiler-plates always contain, besides carbon, varying amounts of manganese, sulphur,
phosphorus, and silicon. Some of these impurities, particularly phosphorus and sulphur, even
in small portions, have a very detrimental effect upon the physical properties of the steel,
making it brittle, unreliable, and unfit for boiler plates. Phosphorus in very small amounts
is held in solid solution by the iron in the form of phosphide of iron, FeP. This does not
alter the crystalline form of the steel, but it enlarges the grains, causing the brittleness so
easily detected by the bending tests when phosphorus exceeds 4 per cent.
The sulphur and manganese combine at high temperature during the manufacture of the
steel to form sulphide of manganese, MnS. The MnS retained by the solid steel forms small
individual grains or elongated particles which do not appear to materially affect the strength
of the steel if they are uniformly distributed in moderate quantities.
The impurities mentioned, up to about 0.04 per cent, do not appear to injuriously affect
the steel so long as they are uniformly distributed throughout the plate. Even these small
quantities, when they show a tendency to segregate, become injurious, and when the segregated
portions are large the useful properties of the steel may be completely destroyed.
It will therefore be seen that the chemical analysis alone is of little value in determining
the suitability of steel plates for boiler-construction. This being the case, Inspectors rely
almost altogether on the bending test to detect steel plates which are not chemically
homogeneous.
We have been making bending tests on strips cut from the length of the plate, as this is
the way the piece is left by steel-makers. Such tests were made on the plates used in the
construction of boiler No. 1075 by Inspector S. Baxter, and were quite satisfactory. In
forming the shell of this boiler, the plates, instead of being bent with the grain, were bent
across the grain, to suit the size of the plates.
I am now of the opinion that all plates should be tested by having the bending-test strips
cut in the direction in which the plate is to be bent in forming the cylindrical shell. In all
cases where possible the plates should be bent in the direction of their length, as a plate not
homogeneous would be much safer treated in this way. The micro-photographs attached to
this report show the importance of this precaution.
Experiment No. 17 : Microscopic tests. In order to determine the micro-structure and
the disposition of the impurities, I prepared specimens cut from positions indicated on Drawing
No. 1, Exhibit 12, and took micro-structure as shown on Exhibit 15.
No. 2 is from B. 9 T. at M. 4; No. 3 is from A. 7 T. at M. 9 ; No. 5 is from D. 4 T. at
M. 6.    These three specimens show the structure of the edge of the plate.
No. 6 is from A. 7 T. at M. 9 and is the same specimen as No. 3, but shows the structure
on the flat surface of the plate.
No. 7 is from D. 9 M. at M. 3 and shows the structure of the fractured edge of the plate.
No. 8 is from D. 9 M. at M. 1 and shows the structure on the edge opposite the explosion
fracture.
The following micro-photographs show structure on the edge of the plates :
"No. 10 is from A. 4 T. at M. 5; No. 11 is from D. 10 T. at M. 7 ; No. 13 is from D. 2 T.
at M. 10; No. 14 is from D. 2 T. at M. 11; No. 16 is from centre of plate at M. 13; No. 17
is fromD. 9 M. at M. 2. ; =
No. 18, Exhibit 16, is from a piece of good steel and is introduced here for comparison.
It shows the micro-structure of the edge-grain, and clearly indicates the inferior qualities of
the plates which failed.
All the specimens were prepared by polishing and etching. Nos. 2 and 3 were magnified
68 diameters, and the others 42 diameters.    Specimens Nos. 2 to 17 show segregation of S 148 Public Works Report (1912-13).
impurities. With the single exception of No. 6, this segregation of impurities shows in bands
of varying widths and lengths, technically known as "ghost lines." These "ghost lines"
weaken the plate to such an extent that when it is subjected to transverse stresses, such as
occur near the lap-seam, cracks occur along these lines.    Such cracks are shown in No. 8.
All of the edge-grain micro-photographs on Exhibit 1.5 show more or less segregation of
impurities in bands or layers. Even Nos. 16 and 17, cut from the centre of the plate far
removed from the action of the transverse stresses, show similar structure. There is no doubt
that this is the reason every test strip bent across the grain failed, while all those bent with
the grain were satisfactory.
A comparison of the original test sheet, Exhibit 2, with the test sheet, Exhibits 11 and
HA, showing physical properties of the boiler-sheet after the explosion, caused me at first to
believe that the boiler had been subjected to pressure far beyond its original elastic limit.
A theory has been advanced that the water may have been left in the boiler and allowed
to freeze solid. I have tried to get evidence of this, but have not succeeded. Failing to get
direct evidence, I proceeded along theoretical lines, reasoning that, if ice had formed to
damage the plates, parts at the top of the boiler not filled with water would not differ greatly
from the physical properties shown by the original test sheet.
I therefore had two strips cut from the top of the shell at D. 1 T. and D. 2 T, Exhibit 12.
Instead of the elastic limit being normal or about one-half the ultimate tensile strength, strip
D. 2 T. had an elastic limit equal to the tensile strength, or about 30,000 ft. per square inch
too high ; while strip D. 1 T. was normal.
From Engineer Mercier's evidence it would appear that the boiler might have been
carrying more than the safe working-pressure on account of the defective steam-gauge, but I
have been unable to get positive evidence on this point.
The physical tests and the microscopic examinations all show the plates to have been very
abnormal; this is the only definite evidence I have been able to secure, and I am of the
opinion that the failure of the plates was due to the transverse stresses caused by varying
steam-pressures acting upon them near the longitudinal lap-seams.
In lap-joint construction the change of curvature occurs just at the edge of the inner lap,
where these plates failed. The bending action on this part of the plate in logging donkey-
boilers is much more serious than in other types, on account of the great variation of steam-
pressures each time a turn of logs is hauled in, the pressure at the commencement of the haul
being usually 50 or 60 ft. per square inch higher than at the finish.
Tests made on the other nine boilers, built to Design No. 1319, showed the deflection of
the plate along the line of the inner lap (taken with a deflectometer having the outer points
11 inches apart) to be from 5/1000 to 67/1000 between 0 and 240 ft. per square inch, the latter
being the test-pressure. The variations for a difference of pressure of 50 ft. per square inch
was from 1^/1000 to 16/1000. With a factor of safety of 5, these deflections should not
destroy the material if it possesses the physical properties required by the Rules for Inspection
and is chemically homogeneous.
The plates which failed contained large segregated areas of impurities in the form of
bands or layers, and they were unable to withstand these stresses. Cracks were started on
the inner surface of the plate. These cracks were attacked by oxygen, which, with the bending
action, caused rapid destruction of the plate to a point where the solid metal was unable to
withstand the steam-pressure.
I am pleased to report that the engineer and the owners, the Vancouver Timber and
Trading Company, are in no way responsible for the explosion, and I wish to say that they
have assisted me in every way possible during this investigation.
I have had valuable assistance from the Inspectors of Districts A, B, D, and E. They
have all seen the parts of the exploded boiler, which was brought to Vancouver by the owners,
and each Inspector has given me a written report of his view on the matter.
A considerable amount of research-work has been done in this office in connection with
the action of steam-pressure on lap-joints since the explosion, and I am sure the information
obtained will be conducive to greater safety in the future.
I have, etc.,
