BRIDGES  THROUGHOUT  THE   PROVINCE.
Apart from small bridges built by the Road Superintendents and referred to in their
reports in the various districts, the following bridges were designed in the Bridge Engineering
Department, and described as follows :—
Cariboo District.
Repairs were made in the Chilcotin (Sheep Creek) suspension bridge, the wooden towers
being replaced by steel tower's.
Columbia District.
A 95-foot swing-span, with a 63-foot King truss adjoining, and some pile-bent approach
at either end, was built over the Columbia River at Spillimachene, leaving a clear waterway of
45-feet between the pivot pier and piers 2 and 4 for the passage of boats.
Plans for a 120-foot Howe-truss span, 16 feet 7 inches between trusses, were designed and
erected over Horse Thief Creek.
Fernie District.
Renewals were made in this bridge and a 63-foot King truss built on to the 140-foot
truss ; this was necessitated by a change in channel, causing a deep scour by which three bays
of pile approach were washed out.
Grand Porks District.
A new bridge was built over the Kettle River in the City of Grand Forks, along the
centre line of First Street produced. It is made up of two spans, one of 165 feet, and
adjoining that a King truss 63 feet over all, and some pile-bent approach at either end. The
piles for the piers were driven through a brush mattress 18 inches thick, and surrounded by
a crib pier, extending well above extreme high water. From the shore piers, pile and timber
wings were built, extending well back into the banks. The piers of the old bridge were
removed.
Greenwood District.
The most important bridge built in this district was that over the Kettle River near
Nicholson Creek; one through span of 164 feet over all and 16 feet wide between trusses.
The piers are built of piling, ten piles to each pier, well sway-braced, and surrounded by flatted
log cribs, extending from below the ground-line to 2 feet above the line of ordinary high water.
Three bays of pile-bents, spaced at 20-foot centres, completes this bridge, which is close to the
line of the Kettle Valley Railway.
Kamloops District.
A Howe-truss span, 16 feet between trusses and 103 feet long, was built over the Eagle
River at Bowie, the span being approached by some pile-bents on either side.
The most important bridge in this district, and known as the " Red Bridge," was that
built over the South Thompson River. Commencing at the Kamloops side, the bridge is
approached by eighteen bays of trestle-bents built on a 5-per-cent. grade; then come two
deck-spans of 125 feet each, then one through truss of 125 feet; then twelve bays of trestle-
bent approach built on a 5-per-cent. grade.
From approximate low-water line to the top of the floor, the height is about 55 feet.
The reason for this height was in order to give a clear headroom of 38 feet from ordinary
high water to the under side of the chords of the through span for the passage of steamboats.
Pier 1 is of piling; piers 2, 3, 4 and 5 consist of piles driven and cut off 1 foot above low
water, with a timber grillage on top ; the piers built on top of squared timber, braced and
trussed throughout, and sheathed with 4-inch plank. P 10 Public Works Report (1911-12).
Okanagan District.
A new bridge was built over the Shuswap River on the Trinity Valley Road, comprising
one span of 123 feet long, and adjoining this a 63-foot King truss.
A bridge was built over Perry Creek, the main channel being spanned by a 40-foot King
truss; the under side of the chords are about 86 feet above water-line. This necessitated very
high trestle-bents on both sides of the truss, divided into three and four decks each. The
batter of the outside posts was 3 in 1.
Revelstoke District.
The " Upper Bridge" over the Illecillewaet River was renewed, the old span being
replaced by a Howe-truss span of 164 feet long over all.
Similkameen District.
A bridge was built over the Tulameen River near Granite Creek, made up as follows :
Commencing at the left bank of the river are three bays of trestle-bents, built on a level
grade, the centre bent spanning the Kettle Valley Railroad track and allowing a clear headroom of 24 feet. Adjoining these bents is a deck-span of 125 feet in length. From thence
down to the right bank are double-deck trestle-bents built on a 5-per-cent. grade. The piers
for the deck-span rest on bench walls of concrete carried up well above high water. Sills,
posts, and caps of squared timbers well braced complete the piers.
Skeena District.
A bridge was built over the Bella Coola River at Canoe Crossing, made up of two spans
of 123 feet each, and five bays of pile-bent approach.    The width of roadway is 15 feet.

8 inches between wheel-guards.
Two spans of 123 feet each, adjoining, were built over the Slocan River at Slocan City.
The bridge over the Slocan River near "Perry's Siding" comprises three spans of 123
feet each, one span of 63 feet, and some pile-bent approach at either end. The under-side of
the chords are 8 feet above flood-level of 1894, which allows of ample headroom for the passage
of drift timber, logs, etc.

REPORT  OF  INSPECTOR  OF  DYKES.
Office of Inspector of Dykes,
Victoria, B.C., December 31st, 1912.
Hon. Thomas Taylor,
Minister of Public Works,  Victoria, B.C.
Sir,—I have the honour to present for your consideration my annual report with reference
to the maintenance and management of the Chilliwack, Matsqui, Maple Ridge, Coquitlam, and
Pitt Meadows Dyking Districts for the fiscal year ending September 30th, 1912.
The following is a record of the maximum freshet heights in the Fraser River, as registered
by gauges at Chilliwack, Matsqui and Pitt River, for thirteen consecutive years from 1900 to
1912, inclusive. As the freshet of 1894 was the highest of which there has been any record,
the flood-level for that year is also given. The grade of the crown of the dykes was based on
the 1894 H.W.M., and fixed at an elevation approximately 2 feet above that level.

As will be seen by reference to the above table, the height of the freshet this year was
slightly below the average. This result was due to the exceptionally cool weather which
prevailed over the areas tributary to the Thompson and Fraser Rivers during the months of
June and July.
Although the maximum height of the freshet was below the average, yet, owing to the
fact that the water continued for a longer period than usual at too high a stage to permit the
gates to open, the length of the pumping season was correspondingly increased.

Pumps.
Owing to the large item in maintenance charges entailed in the cost of operating the
pumps, the question of reducing this expense by the adoption of electric power in lieu of steam
has been under consideration since the establishment of extensive power plants has held out
a prospect of its being practically solved.
As the first cost of purchasing and installing new electrically driven pumping plants
would form a heavy item of expense, and as under the provisions of the "Dyking Assessments
Adjustment Act, 1905," any money advanced from the Treasury in connection with dyking
operations was  required  to  be  collected and  repaid  in  the  same year as that in which the 3 Geo. 5
Public Works Report (1911-12).
P 83
expenditure occurred, an amendment to the Act was introduced by the Government at the
last session of the Legislature, by which the repayment of any unusual expenditure can be
extended over a number of years. The effect of this amendment is to enable the purchase and
installation of electrically driven pumping plants, in lieu of the old plants operated by steam,
to be carried out without unduly increasing the yearly cost of maintenance ; and the successors
of the present land-owners, who will equally, with the latter, benefit by these improvements,
will also bear a portion of the cost.
With a view of obtaining electric power in lieu of steam for operating the pumps,
quotations were invited from the B.C. Electric Railway Co. and from the Western Canada
Power Co. for furnishing the necessary power and equipment for operating the pumps in the
Matsqui, Maple Ridge, Coquitlam, Tract No. 1 and Tract No. 2 Pitt Meadows Dyking Districts.
As a result, negotiations were entered into with the Western Canada Power Co., so that
as soon as the amendment above referred to was made a contract was let to that company for
installing electrically driven plants at Matsqui, Maple Ridge, Coquitlam, and Pitt Meadows
No. 1 Districts.
The repayment of the cost, together with interest at 5 per cent., was extended over a
period of twenty years, which is the estimated life of the plant, allowing 5 per cent, for
depreciation per annum. As these plants are in operation only for about three months in the
year, the above estimate is well within the limits of safety.
The following is a statement showing the amount expended to date, for equipment and
installation, in the districts named, together with the annual charge to pay off the cost,
including interest and sinking fund, in twenty years :—

In the above items of cost for 1912 are included also the first annual instalments on
account of interest and sinking fund to pay off the capital charge in twenty years at 5 per
cent, per annum.
The difference in cost above mentioned is due not only to the lesser cost of electrical
energy as compared with steam for operating the pumps, but also to the saving in wages that
is effected on account of a smaller staff being required through the adoption of electrical power.
The contract price for the supply of electrical energy is at the rate of 1 cent per kilowatt
hour, the company at its own expense to erect and maintain the distributing-lines and
transformers necessary for the supplying electrical energy to each of the pumping-sfcations in
all of the said dyking districts.
Sluice-gates.
As the existing gates, which are constructed of wood, have been in use for from twelve to
fourteen years, the question of their renewal is one that cannot, with safety be longer delayed. P 84 Public Works Report (1911-12).
After the amendment to the Act, previously referred to, providing for an extension of
time for the repayment of any unusual expenditure was made, it was decided to replace a
number of wooden sluices with reinforced-concrete sluices as soon as practicable. As these
structures are of a permanent character, the time for repayment was fixed so as to correspond
with the date of the final payment to the Government of the capital charge assessed against
the lands in the dyked districts.
This allows an extension of time of thirty-two years in which to pay off the original cost,
including sinking fund and interest, an arrangement by which the large expenditure involved
in carrying out these works will add but a comparatively slight increase to the annual cost
of maintenance.
The first work to be undertaken after the new regulations came into force was the
construction of a reinforced 4-gate concrete sluice to replace the old wooden gate-sluice in
Upper Coquitlam, near Boville Slough.
In response to an advertisement for tendars for the work, February 23rd, 1912, bids-
were received as follows from the contractors named:—
L. Frank Hay  $5181 20
R. H. Traverse    4024 10
M. P. Cotton    3461 80
Mackenzie, Broadfoot & Johnston    3108 40
The tender of Messrs. Mackenzie, Broadfoot & Johnston, being the lowest, was accepted,,
and the work was completed before the time of the ensuing high water.
On account of extra work performed, which was not included in the contract, the total
cost was $3,632.37. The repayment of this sum, together with sinking fund and interest at
5 per cent, per annum, extended over thirty-two years, requires a yearly payment of $198.13.
In addition to the sluice-gate above referred to, tenders were requested to be submitted
on September 12th, 1912, for the construction of five reinforced-concrete sluices, as follows,
viz.: one 4-gate in Maple Ridge District, near the mouth of the Lillooet River; one 2-gate in
the Coquitlam District, near the ferry; one 4-gate in Coquitlam, near the mouth of Pitt River;
one 2-gate in Pitt Meadows District, Tract No. 1, near the junction of the N. and S. Lillooet;
one 2-gate in Pitt Meadows District, Tract No.  2,  near the mouth of the Lillooet River.
Tenders for the construction of the sluices above designated were received as follows:—
Waugh, Misner & Bailey $21,688 35
Walter H. Mueller    20,278 20
James Reid Todd . .    21,085 00
MacKenzie, Broadfoot & Johnston    11,614 50
The tender of Messrs. MacKenzie, Broadfoot & Johnston, being the lowest, and as they
had satisfactorily performed the work on the concrete sluice previously constructed by them,
the contract was let to that firm.
The work of construction is now well under way, and it is expected that one or two
sluices, in addition to those included in the contract, will be replaced with reinforced-concrete
structures before the season of next high water.
In addition to the pumping-stations where electrical plants have already been installed,
it is proposed, in compliance with the wishes of all the land-owners in tract No. 2, Pitt
Meadows District to have an electric plant installed at that station before the next high
water. The existing plant is operated by gasolene, and as the price of that commodity
has been steadily increasing during the last few years, and there is every prospect of its
continuing to do so, the saving in the cost of electrical energy as a motive power, as compared
with gasolene, will result in a permanent reduction in the cost of pumping operations. As.
the present plant is in good condition, it can, no doubt, be disposed of at a price which will
materially offset the cost involved in making the required alterations in the system of operation.

additional Inspectors provided for in the Estimates, 1912, commenced duty July 8th, 1912.
Both these men went into the Victoria District, Mr. Bath, of that district, being transferred
to Vancouver.
The following is a summary of the routine 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 report of the Inspectors for the different districts and that of the
Chief Examiner :—
Letters inward  6,431
Letters outward  6,704
Telegrams inward      116
Telegrams outward  110
Inspectors' monthly reports examined  132
New designs examined, calculated, and reported on  272
Amendments to designs calculated and reported on  167
Fees collected for designs   $1,165
Fines collected for infractions of Act  600
Number of miles travelled by Chief Inspector  2,580
I am pleased to again be able to report that there have been no boiler explosions during
the year. The number of accidents to persons and machinery are fully set forth in the
District Inspectors' reports. It will be noted that there were three fatal accidents, all of
which occurred in District B. None of these accidents, however, were attributable to any
defect in the machinery. In one case the engineer's clothing was caught by a revolving shaft
while oiling the machinery, and in another case a donkey-engine which was being moved
turned over and killed a workman who was alongside. In the third case repairs were being-
made to one of a battery of boilers, the other boiler being under steam; the main steam-pipe
between the two boilers was provided with two stop-valves; these valves for some unaccountable
reason were not closed before the men commenced to take apart the main steam-pipe next to
the boiler which was being repaired. As soon as the bolts were loosened in the end of the
pipe, part of it blew out, killing the pipe-fitter instantly and injuring the engineer.
The number of new boilers inspected during the year was 621, as compared with 287 for
1911. The number taken out of service as unfit for further use was twenty-eight, as
compared with thirty-four for the year 1911.
The number of second-hand boilers imported is ninety-eight, as compared with 119 for
the year 1911; eighty-five of these were from the United States and thirteen from Eastern
Canada. The total number of new boilers now on our books, after deducting those taken out
of service, is 4,651. Of these, 2,638 were inspected during the year. Many of those not
inspected were not in operation during the whole or part of the year.
The number of plates tested for new boilers was 968, of which eight were condemned.
This is by far the best showing of plates that has been made since the Act came into
operation. P 86 Public Works Report (1911-12).
The cruiser " Adanac" was used for inspections in Districts A, B, and D. The boat was
run through the season very successfully without a single accident. Total number of miles
run was 3,659; the coal-oil used for the engine, lamps, and all other purposes was 1,485
gallons; the average consumption per mile for all purposes being 0.405 gallons, and the
average consumption for the engine 1.1 pint per horse-power per hour.
In conclusion, I desire to thank you for your active support of this office, and particularly
for the authority given for the purchase of instruments and apparatus for our metallographic
laboratory. I also wish to thank all the members of the staff for the efficient manner in
which they carried out their work during the year.
There is attached hereto a summary of the total work done by the District Inspectors
for the year ending December 31st, 1912, as well as their reports and a summary of work
done by each Inspector.
Trusting this report will meet with your approval,
I have, etc.,
John Peck,
Chief Inspector of 3Iachinery.

New Westminster, B.C., January 2nd, 1913.
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,
1912:—
During the year I have received 1,595 applications for examination for the different
grades of certificates.
On December 31st, 1911, I had on hand 217 applications, making a total of 1,812. Of
these, 1,103 have been examined; 228 candidates had their fees returned, as they had not the
practical qualifications required by the Act; thirty-five sent in applications without fees ; and
forty-six were notified three times, and as there was no response in any case their application
forms were placed on a special file to await inquiry by the applicants. This leaves on the
"Accepted for Examination" file 173 application forms.

John Peck, Esq.,
Chief Inspector of Machinery, New Westminster, B.C.
Sir,—I have the honour to submit to you the annual report showing the work done by
me for the year ending December 31st, 1912.
During the year nearly all my time has been occupied in carrying out the work that came
into this office—namely, examining, calculating, reporting on, and registering designs of
boilers, pipe plans, safety-valves, etc., examining engineers, and inspecting and testing boilers.
Owing to the increasing number of boiler designs being submitted for approval, together
with a great number of new boilers coming into this district, I would respectfully suggest that
an additional Inspector be appointed, as otherwise the present staff will be unable to cope with
the growing requirements of the boiler manufacturers and owners.
Appended you will find the tabulated list of work done by me during the year.
Trusting that this report will meet with your approval,
I have, etc.,

John Peck, Esq.,
Chief Inspector of Machinery, New Westminster, B.C.
Sir,—I have the honour to submit to you my report for the year ending December 31st,
1912.
I am pleased to say that no fatal accidents have occurred in this district during 1912.
The accidents to engines and boilers have been the results of causes which must always
be attended on the operation of steam-power plants.
In the erection and operation of these plants, owners are finding that it is an advantage
to make their installations in accordance with the wishes of this Department, thus obtaining
increased efficiency, which is the key-note of manufacturing success.
The turbine is becoming a popular power-producer, and is being installed for large and
small units.
In tendering my report, I trust that you will consider my efforts to have been in
accordance with the policy of the Department.
I have, etc.,

■John Peck, Esq.,
Chief Inspector of Machinery, New Westminster, B.C.
Sir,—I have the honour to submit herewith my report of work done during the year 1912.
Twenty-four boilers have been built under my supervision in this district, and all the
plates used in construction of same were tested, only two of which were rejected. There are
six boilers under construction at the present time.
One case came under my notice in which the owner of a steam plant was employing an
engineer who had no certificate.    The Court fined them both $100 each and costs.
The general condition of the plants which I have inspected this year has been good, and
it appears to me that the owners and engineers are endeavouring to comply with the law.
In October I assisted you in some extensive tests on copper stills and cast-iron radiators
at the Pacific Chocolate Company's plant.
Trusting my work has met with your approval,

my work for the past twelve months :—
General examinations have been held every three months in Victoria and Nanaimo, also
intermediate examinations, as opportunity permitted, in the Victoria office, which happened
every month but February. Examinations were also held by me in Cumberland, and by the
Junior Inspector in Prince Rupert and the north, as you will see by my tabulated report.
As the work in this office is becoming more arduous, owing to the rapidly increasing
correspondence as well as to the large number of visitors received daily, I feel that in future,
I shall be tied even more than ever to the office; and, as to properly inspect the increasing-
number of steam plants in this district additional help is much needed, I trust that at least
one Inspector will be added to the Victoria District at an early date.
I regret to say that during the year there have been fifteen accidents to engines and
boilers, in which five persons were injured and three were killed. Among the mishaps to
steam plants were :—
In January, at steam plant No. 895, the engineer, who was oiling some machinery, got
his right arm caught in some spur-wheels, and was so badly injured that he had to have his
arm amputated at the shoulder.
In February, an accident happened to an engine-shaft governor, which broke and the
pieces flew out through the engine-room, but fortunately none of the persons present were
struck.
In March the engine at steam plant No. 1258 was wrecked from the governor becoming
disarranged and permitting the engine to race so badly that serious damage resulted. The
same month, at steam plant No. 600, the engineer, having cleaned and washed out his boiler,
put a little coal-oil in to soften the scale, and when the boiler was being filled with water he
put a light inside to observe the amount of water, when the gas ignited, causing an explosion
which blew him away, burning his hands and face and hurting his back.
In April, at steam plant No. 1431, which was a concrete mixer being operated on the
street, the engineer, when oiling, was caught by his clothes on the revolving shaft and was
pulled into the machinery and instantly killed.
In May an engineer was oiling the saw-carriage engine, when the engine moved, catching
his hand and tearing off some of his fingers.
In June a fatal accident occurred at steam plant No. 16. The engineer with an assistant
was taking apart a steam-pipe, which by some grave oversight was full of steam. A portion
of the pipe blew off, instantly killing the assistant and scalding the engineer. This accident
was officially investigated by you afterwards. The same month, at steam plant No. 1014,
when the engineer was feeding the boiler by means of an injector, the feed-water happened to
get shut off, resulting in the blowing-out of the overflow and badly scalding the engineer.
In July an accident happened to a boiler which was overheated, caused by a burst water-
gauge. The engineer, after replacing same, did not sufficiently open the valve and low water
resulted.
In August a fatal accident occurred in Cowichan Lake from a steam logging-donkey,
which was being moved, toppling over, killing a workman who was alongside. In the same
month a heating plant was overheated owing to the steam-fitter putting the check-valve on
return pipe the wrong way, so that the water of condensation could not return to the boiler.
In September steam-boiler No. 668 became overheated by lowness of water, caused by
burst gauge-glass, and the improper manipulation of the test-cocks by the fireman while the
engineer was busy with the engine. P 96
Public Works Report (1911-12).
In November, at steam plant No. 1080, an engine governor spindle nut worked off
causing the engine to race. The pulley burst in pieces, one of which struck a workman on
the arm, badly breaking it. During the same month a stop-valve was fractured by water-
hammer, but fortunately no one was scalded.
Twice during the year I have had the use of the cruiser " Adanac," and found it of great
assistance in inspecting steam plants on the Gulf Islands. Thus I was enabled to inspect
with dispatch some thirty steam plants.
During the year just past the former Junior Inspector was moved to Vancouver, and in
the same month Inspector Worth was sent here in his place. In October Inspector Duckitt
was also sent to this district. Notwithstanding such increased assistance, as well as the
appointment of a stenographer and typewriter, the work in this district is still in arrears, and
it was impossible to find time to inspect the numerous steam plants in the Queen Charlotte
Islands and other northern points, as well as many in the interior atFort George and other
districts. The foregoing is my reason for desiring additional help to more efficiently carry out
the work of this district.
Strict supervision has been kept on all steam plants as to their being under the charge of
certificated engineers, and any reports to the contrary were at once looked into. It was
necessary in two cases to proceed against offenders, who were fined in accordance with the
Inspection Act.
Trusting this report meets with your approbation, and enclosing tabulated detail of
earnings, collections, etc.,

John Peck, Esq.,
Inspector of Machinery, New Westminster, B.C.
Sir,—I have pleasure in forwarding you my report for the first eight months of 1912,
during which period I was located in the Victoria District.
While employed there I inspected boilers in Comox, Nanaimo, Prince Rupert (as far
inland as Aldermere), Stewart, Granby Bay, Atlin, Ocean Falls, and Jordan River District.
Also Skeena River, Nass River, Rivers Inlet, and Kimsquit Canneries.
I am pleased to say that the boilers in these districts, with the exception of those in
Cumberland, are both operated and looked after in a satisfactory manner.
The attached tabulated report for this period will show the extent of work done, which
I trust you will find satisfactory.

John Peck, Esq.,
Chief Inspector of Machinery, New Westminster, B.C.
Sir,—I have the honour to submit herewith my first annual report since I was appointed
Inspector of Boilers on July 8th, 1912.
From that date I was employed in the New Westminster office on the calculating of
boiler designs, assisting with engineers' examinations, and inspecting boilers in the district,
and the experience gained in that time has been of much service to me.
I commenced my duties in the Victoria District on October 2nd, 1912, under the instructions and direction of Mr. Baxter, and have since endeavoured to give every satisfaction.
During the three months I have been in District B I have inspected ninety-seven boilers in
the vicinity of Victoria, Cumberland, Comox, and Nanaimo, and other various places
between Victoria and Nanaimo. I also assisted with engineers' examinations in Victoria and
Cumberland.
The majority of the steam plants I inspected were in a satisfactory condition, but most
of the vertical boilers used for logging purposes leaked at the tube-ends in the top head, some
of them to such an extent that no pressure could be obtained with the test-pump. All minor
defects are given in the tabulated report.
Trusting this report will meet with your approval,
I have, etc.,
Louis Duckitt,
Inspector, District B.

Victoria, B.C., January 2nd, 1913.
John Peck, Esq.,
Chief Inspector of Machinery, New  Westminster, B.C.
Sir,—I have the honour to submit to you my first annual report since my entry into the
service on July 8th, 1912.
From then till July 31st I was employed in your office at Westminster, mostly on the
working-out of blue-prints and acquiring much useful information.
On August 1st I started work in the Victoria District under Mr. Baxter, and have been
employed mostly on inspection-work. Owing to the scattered nature of the district and the
difficulties of communication, my report is less satisfactory than I could wish.
I have inspected plants in Victoria, Jordan River, Nanaimo, Port Alberni, etc., and
on the West Coast.
One return-tubular boiler in a local hotel was inspected for the first time, and was found
so wasted by internal corrosion as to be unfit for any useful pressure and so had to be
condemned.
Boiler 402b was condemned owing to bad external corrosion. It was only sixteen years
old, but had never been reasonably protected from the weather.
Boiler 217b was found to be badly corroded at bottom of back head, tube-ends gone,
many tubes very thin, and stay-pins more or less corroded. I have informed the owners that
its further use to drive the engine cannot be allowed unless tubes and brickwork are removed
and the boiler repaired, if then worth while.    This boiler is twenty-six years old.
For minor defects, please see tabulated report.
Trusting that this report will meet with your approval,
I have, etc.,
H. Worth,
Inspector, District B.

Inspector's Report, District C.
Nelson, B.C., January 2nd, 1913.
John Peck, Esq.,
Chief Inspector of Machinery, New Westminster, B.C.
Sir,—I have the honour to submit the following report for the year ending December
31st, 1912:—
During the year engineers' examinations were held at different points in the district at
frequent intervals (see tabulated report), and on this occount the number of boilers inspected
was less than in the preceding year. Also there are quite a number of steam-shovels along
the route of the new railways, and, as they are a long way from railway transportation, it
takes considerable time to get to them. The steam plants in the district around Princeton
are also increasing and are widely scattered.
Very few accidents have happened in this district, only two resulting in personal injuries.
In one case the engineer was going to wash out the boiler, and, thinking it was empty, he
pushed in the front manhole-cover and was scalded by the water which had been left in the
boiler. The other accident was caused by a logging-locomotive getting out of control, with
the result that the engineer's shoulder was dislocated. Four boiler-plates were damaged by
scale and mud gathering on the furnaces of locomotive boilers, and it was necessary to replace
a number of stays in each case. There are a few small mills each operating with only one
locomotive-type boiler, and it is rather difficult to remove sediment from the plates on account
of lack of water-pressure.
Apart from the extra time which was given to engineers' examinations, the work done
has been very much the same as in former years.
Appended you will find tabulated statement for the year.
I have, etc.,
Andrew Sutherland,
Inspector, District C.

Four new boilers built under inspection in Eastern Canada were inspected before being
built in. They were not subjected to hydrostatic test, and have not been included in this
year's report, as it will be some time yet before they are ready for operation.

John Peck, Esq.,
Chief Inspector of Machinery, New Westminster, B.C.
Sir,—I have the honour to submit the following report for the year 1912 (see tabulated
report):—
I am pleased to report that there have been no explosions nor serious accidents in this
district during the year. The only accidents we have heard of will be found in the Inspectors'
individual reports.
My work during the year has been confined to the office almost entirely, keeping up the
records, arranging the work of the Inspectors, and examining fourth-class and special engineers.
Regarding the work in this district, I would say that only about one-half of the logging-
donkeys have been inspected owing to lack of assistance. The heating plants also have not all
been gone ever for the same reason. These boilers are causing a good deal of trouble because
of the heating contractors not taking the Act seriously, the Inspector having to go to some of
these plants four or five times before they can get them to make all the changes required by
the regulations. This is on the new plants ; on all the older ones the defects are being pointed
out as we find time to visit them, and the owners are given until August 1st to bring them up
to the requirements of the modified rules. This will again mean several trips to each plant
before final inspection is made. Some of the owners are strongly objecting to any changes
after the boilers have been satisfactorily operating for several years. One man called at the
office and threatened to take the matter to the Supreme Court before he would submit to this
injustice, claiming that, as the installing engineer had been putting in any number of boilers
exactly like this one and had not been molested until the present time, he was justified in
supposing that the Act did not apply to low-pressure plants, and he having installed them in
good faith could not legally be made to change them now. I mention this to show the trouble
we are likely to meet before final inspection is made of these older boilers, and the amount of
time it will take up without showing appreciable results. You can readily see that our present
staff will be too small to take care of the increased number of high-pressure plants, and also
get the older heating-boilers in line with requirements.   . P 108 Public Works Report (1911-12).
The engineers' examinations also take up considerable time. At present I can take care
of the fourth-class and special engineers, who can be examined at odd times, but the regular
examinations for higher grades either cause delay in inspections or are too far apart. The
candidates at the present time have cause for complaint at being kept three or four months
after making application before they can be examined, but this is the best we can do under
the circumstances.
Trusting that this report will meet with your approval,
I have, etc.,

Vancouver, B.C., January 2nd, 1913.
J. Peck, Esq.,
Chief Inspector of Machinery, New Westminster, B.C.
Sir,—I beg to submit herewith for your consideration report of work completed for year
ending December 31st, 1912.
During the months of February, March, April, May, June, July, August, September,
October, and November I assisted with examinations in this office. Reports of the individual
candidates examined are upon file in your office, the number passed and failed in the different
grades being tabulated in attached report. 3 Geo. 5 Public Works Report (1911-12). P 109
Four hundred and twenty-three boilers were examined, a great many of these being
heating-boilers. One boiler was condemned, twenty-one were found unsafe without extensive
repairs, and upon seven it was necessary to reduce the allowable working-pressure. Four
boilers were taken out of service, and to the owners or four more notices were given that the
working-pressure would be reduced at next inspection. These latter boilers are probably
twenty-three years old and have been in use almost continuously.
The crank-shaft of the main engine of E. H. Heaps & Co.'s plant developed a fracture
serious enough, in my opinion, to condemn the shaft.
Two boilers were dented by falling, and it was necessary to take the plates apart and
reroll them. One of these was a large water-tube boiler built by Goldie McCulloch & Co. It
seems that it fell from the crane when being removed from a flat car at the railway-track.
This year a great deal more attention has been paid to the heating plants than formerly,
the number inspected being seventy-two. Nearly all these boilers were new and installed at
the time of inspection. It was found necessary to make many trips to each plant to consult
with the contractor and correct mistakes made in the attachment of the various mountings,
etc. Generally speaking, much ignorance was found among heating-men as to proper methods
of attaching the different valves, etc., as the following instance will show : To avoid boring a
1-inch hole in the opposite side of a boiler, the lower connection from the water-column was
taken from the side of the boiler down through the brick arch above the fire and up to the
opposite side. Naturally when steam was raised much trouble was caused by the water-level
in the glass fluctuating, and this led to the discovery of the manner in which the pipes were
connected.
In another case the contractor, for lack of head-room, had placed the safety-valves upon
the steam-pipe of a cast-iron boiler at such an angle that any hot water or steam would be
discharged by the safety-valve almost directly on the attendant's head.
In a great many cases lack of space was a common fault, some boiler-rooms being so small
that it would be dangerous for the attendant to attempt to reach the boiler-valves if the
safety-valve should blow off for a short period. In several plants it was necessary to abandon
tests upon safety-valves on this account, the amount of steam discharged making it impossible
to see the steam-gauge or water-glass. Discharge-pipes outside the buildings were suggested,
but in very few cases was the suggestion carried out.
In November several reports came into this office that a contracting firm were operating-
boilers without certificated engineers. Investigation proved this to be a fact, and, acting on
your instructions, summons were issued against the company and the men. Information was
laid in two cases, but unfortunately neither the witnesses subpoenaed by the Crown nor the
men summoned appeared in Court, counsel for the defense stating that they had probably left
the country. The cases against the men were adjourned and those against the company
dismissed for want of evidence. It appears that the summonses and subpoenas were not
actually delivered to the men, but left with some of the officials at their office. In another
case information was laid, but the company refused service of the summons, and in this they
were upheld by the presiding Magistrate. It appears that this company is a partnership, and
the Magistrate held that it would be necessary to serve one of the partners before the case
could be brought into Court, and as none of the partners reside in British Columbia it
was found impossible to do this. Owing to the adjournment of this case I did not feel justified in keeping the witnesses, who were out of work and without pay as witnesses, any longer,
and so abandoned the case.
To determine the exact meaning of the word " employer," I would suggest that the
definition used in the "Factories Act "be inserted in the "Boilers Inspection Act "at the
coming session. I have already forwarded to your office a written opinion from Mr. McKay,
the Crown prosecutor to this effect.
The tendency of factories and other steam plants to move well out from the car-lines
would make the necessity for an automobile for the Department more apparent every year.
Some means of rapid transit should be supplied both for the convenience of the steam-users
and the Department. In attending to the heating plants, a great saving of. time would be
effected and much more accomplished in the same time. The necessity of walking several
blocks to the plant from the street-car and back, with the delays attendant while waiting for
the right car to come, would be avoided, and in many other ways time would be saved, and
the gain in the amount of work accomplished would in all likelihood pay interest upon the
investment of a small automobile.    It should be remembered that for all work certain tools P 110 Public Works Report (1911-12).
are necessary, and the street-car, while giving us rapid access to points close to the line, is not
convenient unless it takes us within one or two blocks of our destination. The fact that these
small automobiles are necessary is borne out by the increasing number of people who use them
in carrying on their business.
Trusting this report will meet with your approval,
I have, etc.,
Percy A. Goepel,
Inspector, District D.

Percy A. Goepel,
Inspector of Steam-boilers, District D. P 112 Public Works Report (1911-12).
Inspector's Report, District D.
Vancouver, B.C., January 2nd, 1913.
John Peck, Esq.,
Chief Inspector of Machinery, New  Westminster, B.C.
Sir,—I have the honour to submit my annual report for the past year, 1912.
An analysis of the tabulated statement attached hereto, noting defects met with during
the year, would suggest that little progress is being made here in regard to the installation
and equipment of steam-boilers. Although the total number of inspections does not vary
considerably from last year, the defects as noted under various heads show an alarming-
increase. I refer to "defective settings " and "defective safety-valves." It is satisfactory,
however, to know that the heating-boilers are wholly responsible for this increase, the
inspection of which has been a breaking of new ground as time and opportunity permitted
during the year. In view of what, under ordinary high-pressure conditions, would be rather
dangerous defects, it is further satisfactory to know that the operating steam-pressures are
nearly all under 5 lb.
It is plain that Vancouver, compared with other inspection districts in the Province,
necessarily presents the steam-heating problem in its most complex form, and I think it is
worth while to devote a little time in this report to its consideration from a boiler-inspection
standpoint.
It may be said that, except in very few instances, a place for the steam-boiler in the
building is apparently an afterthought on the part of the architect, with the result that it is
usually placed in a pit to afford head-room for the necessary valves and steam-headers. This
in turn creates blow-off complications, which necessitate the use of a sump and small pump to
take care of the water blown out. Any explanation in connection with this difficulty other
than lack of forethought on the part of the architect need not be inquired into. The heating
contractor, being thus handicapped by such space restrictions, finds it difficult to install the
boiler in strict accordance with the amended inspection rules, even when these rules are
within his knowledge. There is therefore some excuse for a certain impatience of criticism or
correction at the hands of the Department of Boiler Inspection. Cases arise where, in view
of the Act, there is really no room for difference of opinion, yet the same points are discussed
and the same objections offered with nearly every new installation. Considering that the
amended and modified rules, as applied to steam-heating plants, embody the joint ideas of the
Chief Inspector and the representative heating engineers of the city, it is rather discouraging
to find no lively tendency on the part of the latter to give these rules hearty support.
Another phase of the problem may be attributed to the constant influx of new contractors,
and also of new foremen to the established firms of the city. With few exceptions, the
experience of these men has not been gained in British Columbia, but in other places, where,
as they assert, the heating engineer labours under no inspection restrictions, and were
the Inspector open to conviction on the point, he would see in this immunity from inspection
a positive virtue. However, the law is quite clear on this point and discussion is only a waste
of time.
The foregoing remarks refer particularly to the new heating installations with which this
office has dealt and put on the records during the year 1912, and it includes practically all
the new heating-boilers installed during the time stated. There is, however, one more aspect
of the heating difficulty, and that is the remodelling of the plants installed prior to inspection
and now regularly operating. Throughout the year this office has, as time would allow, put
as many of these plants on the records as possible. The inspections have not been very
thorough, the main object being to note the details wherein a plant is.at variance with the
inspection rules; the owners are notified accordingly, and a time limit, August 1st, 1913, set,
after which these boilers cannot be operated in their present condition.
Oil-fuel is becoming quite extensively used in heating plants with cast-iron as well as
steel boilers. As the Inspector's authority is not very clear in regard to oil-fuel equipment,
he has often to keep silent about what he considers a dangerous state of things.    The danger 3 Geo. 5
Public Works Report (1911-12).
P 113
usually lies in the fact of the boiler-front being too close to a wall or other obstruction, thus
giving the attendant no chance to dodge and escape the blow-back of flame so common in oil-
fuel behaviour. Such a condition obtains very often where no good reason is apparent for
having the boiler so placed relatively to the wall of the building.
In thus giving some idea of the heating problem, I have avoided unnecessary detail as
far as is consistent with affording some general information as to the difficulties of the work.
I have just to note further that the inspection of what is already on record will require
an unusual amount of running around, in which the street-car system cannot assist very much,
when the various plants come on in their order for inspection, and it is obvious that other
means should be provided to facilitate this scattered work.
With regard to ordinary high-pressure work, nothing has occurred during the year
especially worth mentioning. The inspections, with the notable exception of the logging outfits,
are all well in hand ; with one boat, the " Adanac," at our disposal, it would require the whole
available good-weather season of the year to overtake the Coast work in its entirety, and this
would not include such points as Vananda, Powell River, and Rock Bay.
Examinations have been held from time to time in this office, but it cannot be said that
the grade of .work has shown any pronounced improvement, when something like 50 per cent,
only succeeded in gaining certificates.
In closing this report, I have to acknowledge the support given by the Chief Inspector, as
well as by my colleagues of this office, to my best efforts to carry out my duties satisfactorily.

Vancouver, B.C., January 2nd, 1913.
John Peck, Esq.,
Inspector of Machinery, New Westminster, B.C.
Sir,—I have pleasure in forwarding you my report for the last four months of 1912.
On September 3rd I took up my duties in the Vancouver office, and from this date to the
end of November was employed in inspecting logging-boilers in the Howe Sound, Squamish,
and Jervis Inlet Districts, the cruiser " Adanac " being used by me for this purpose.
The attached tabulated account will give you the results of my work during this time,

Inspectors of Steam-boilers, District D. Inspector's Report, District E.
Revelstoke, B.C., January 2nd, 1913.
John Peck, Esq., .
Chief Inspector of Machinery, New Westminster, B.C.
Sir,—I have the honour to submit the following report for the year ending December
31st, 1912 :—
During the year no boiler-explosions have occurred; there have not been any fatal
accidents, nor any of even a serious nature.
Two accidents happened to steam-engines. The valve-chest of a Buckeye engine was burst
by water-hammer when the engine was being warmed up. The steam-turbine at Golden had
a number of rows of stator and rotor blades stripped out on two occasions, causing serious
stoppages to the mill. There seems to be no doubt that these accidents happened through the
condenser, which is of the barometric type, being flooded by condensing-water which got up
past the goose-neck and ran down into the L.P. end of the turbine. Since a regulating-valve
has been placed on the discharge from the circulating-pump and a water-gauge glass placed on
the condenser-head, no further trouble has been encountered.
Two sawmills were burned down during the year, but both have been rebuilt. In only
one case was the boiler plant damaged, and that not seriously.
Two boilers were found with the plates seriously cracked at the back heads, and three
more had minor cracks on the back heads. All these cracks took place immediately behind
the angle-irons used as fastenings for the lower through stays.
One safety-valve was found inoperative. This was on a low-pressure cast-iron boiler
which was being inspected for the first time.
One cast-iron sectional boiler was found with five sections cracked, and four of the same
type of boiler had one section cracked in each.
The boilers noted without stop-valves and fusible plugs were all of the low-pressure type.
One small locomotive was damaged by low water. This happened while the nightwatch-
man was in charge. »
One return-tubular boiler was also slightly damaged by low water; the fire was not drawn
in time and the fusible plug melted.
Eleven old boilers were inspected for the first time. These had been in the Province for
years, but had not previously been found by an Inspector, or were not in use when he was
around. Of these, three were in Cariboo, three in the Okanagan, and five in Windermere
Valley, in which latter place an inspection of boilers was made this year for the first time.
The burned plates referred to in the tabulated report were almost all on second-hand
boilers imported from the United States of America, and were being used on railway-
construction work.
Several Government boilers were inspected, but no fees were collected for them, as this
was prior to arrangements being made to collect fees for these.
Eighty-four boilers were inspected for the first time; of these, forty-one were new and forty-
three second-hand.    Most of the latter were small boilers used on railroad-construction work.
The Arrow Lake Sawmills at Arrowhead and Kamloops, as well as the Lee Lumber
Company, Palliser Lumber Company, and Iron Mask Mines, did not operate this year and
were not inspected.
Seventy-two more boilers were inspected this year than last year, but on account of all
the new boilers being so small the average horse-power per boiler fell from 46.4 to 40.4, and
the average fees per boiler from $7.93 to $6.80.
This year, as well as making inspections in the Cariboo country, I went 114 miles up the
North Thompson River along the C.N.R. construction.
After 1913, when the G.T.P. is completed, it will not be possible for me to inspect the
Cariboo District from this end, and I would suggest that it be looked after by the Inspector
who will have charge of the territory adjacent to the Pacific Great Eastern Railroad. At
present there are only thirteen boilers in operation between Ashcroft and Barkerville, to
inspect which I have to travel 600 miles by stage, and the trip occupies from four to five
weeks. 3 Geo.
Public Works Report (1911-12).
P 119
With the advent of the P.G.E. Railway a large number of boilers will undoubtedly go into
the Lillooet and Chilcotin Districts, but there does not seem to be any prospect of any more
going in along the Cariboo Road.
Trusting that this report will meet with your approval,
I have, etc.,
John D. Kay,
Inspector, District E.

General examinations were held three times at Revelstoke, Kamloops, Vernon, and
Golden.    Examinations were also held at Athalmer and Ashcroft.
The amount of fees collected in this district is due to the number of men coming up to
the general examinations without having had time to send their applications to Head Office.
A large number of temporary certificates issued were for low-pressure heating plants.
