Lieutenant-Governor of the Province of British Columbia.
May it please Your Honour :
Herewith I beg respectfully to submit the Annual Report of my Department
for the fiscal year ended March 31st, 1924, in compliance with the provisions of
the " Public Works Act."

REPORT OF THE PUBLIC WORKS ENGINEER.
Parliament Buildings,
Victoria, B.C., June, 30th, 1924.
J. E. Griffith, Esq.,
Deputy Minister of Public Works, Victoria, B.C.
Sir,—I have the honour to submit my report for the year 1923-24.
Organization and Labour.
There was only one important change in the personnel of the Engineering staff. On
appointment of Assistant District Engineer Todd as Municipal Engineer, South Vancouver,
Major E. R. Taylor, formerly on the temporary staff of the Department, was given charge of
this important sub-district. During his six and a half years' faithful service with the Department Mr. Todd had proved himself a most capable and conscientious official. Labour-supply
was normal and the work undertaken by day-labour generally satisfactory. Records kept by
the Department show that returned men continue to receive every consideration in appointment
of both foremen and laboure'rs.
Roads and Trails.
In furthering its well-defined programme of highway-construction, the Department completed some main trunk roads, extended others, and materially improved a large mileage of
existing roads. Among the roads constructed or reconstructed, special mention might be made
of the following:—
Ymir Road.—Construction by contract was completed as far as Xmir, thus linking up Nelson,
18 miles northward, with the highway system of Washington and Idaho. The 12 miles of new
construction north of the United States boundary were economically finished by day-labour, the
results being "highly satisfactory. Between those two portions considerable improvements to
the old road were undertaken by day-labour. Judging from the vehicular traffic, commercial
as well as tourist, using this highway, its opening was amply justified.
Trans-Provincial Highway.—Between Creston and Goatfell about 3% miles were reconstructed and otherwise improved by contract, and other material improvements undertaken in
the Kootenays by day-labour towards bringing this important highway up to standard construction to take care of the increasing through traffic.
Columbia River Road,—Five much-needed diversions aggregating 12.70 miles were carried
out by contract. About 17 miles of this highway were also reconstructed by day-labour at
approximately the same average cost—namely, $4,200 per mile. Such reconstruction affords the
heavy tourist traffic to Banff National Park convenient access via the Banff-Windermere
Road, officially opened in summer of 1923. The photographs elsewhere reproduced show the
excellent nature of the work undertaken on the Columbia River Road.
Golden-Yoho Parle Road.—A start wras made on the construction of this scenic highway,
2.2S miles having been built by contract.
Revelstolce-Arrotohead Road.—Considerable work was done on this highway both by contract
and day-labour, affording relief to the growing settlements in this neighbourhood.
Edgewood-Vernon Road.—Another 4.2S miles w7ere completed by contract, thus bringing
highway connection between the Arrow Lakes and Okanagan Lakes nearer realization.
Cariboo Road.—This road was extended by contract about 6 miles south of Woodpecker,
leaving only about 12 miles of road necessary to connect up Quesnel and Prince George.
Stewart-Hyder Road,—Deterioration of the trestle approach to Stewart rendered imperative
the construction by contract of a mile diversion along the water-front. Other portions of this
highway were gravel-surfaced to provide for extensive developments in this important mining
centre. L 6 Pl-blic Works Report  (1923-24).
On Vancouver Island the most important undertakings were the continuation of 5 miles of
the Hardy Bay-Coal Harbour Road (work having' been carried out hy day-labour under adverse
weather and local conditions), the construction by contract of a diversion of the Jordan River
Road to eliminate heavy grades at Coal Creek Hill, and the widening and surfacing of portions
of the Malahat and other sections of this much-travelled Island Highway.
Generally the njain roads throughout the Province were improved and extensive gravel
surfacing undertaken by day-labour to better cope with the greatly increased motor-vehicle traffic.
Considering the comparative smallness of the funds available for such general highway-improvement work, the quantity and quality of such day-labour operations were of such a high order as
to evoke favourable comments from an appreciative motoring public and many associations.
Hard-surfacing.
As will be noted from details elsewhere given, the programme of hard-surfacing comprised
17 miles, or 170,618 square yards, .being more than twice the yardage for the previous year.
Most important among the projects was the paving (18 feet wide) with one-course cement
concrete of the Pacific Highway to the United States boundary near Blaine, thus providing
a continuous hard-surfaced highway from Vancouver to the United States boundary (30 miles).
In this contract concrete paving records were established, the 7 miles of concrete having been
undertaken in sixty-three working-days, the greatest daily output being 726 lineal feet, a record
for Canada, if not for the North American Continent. In addition to the 1% miles of one-course
concrete paving laid on the Serpentine Flats, Trans-Provincial Highway, about 3% miles of
2-inch bitulithic paving on a 3-inch " black " base were satisfactorily carried out on this highway
in the vicinity of Chilliwack. To accommodate the greatly increased motor traffic on the East
Saanich Road, due to the inauguration of ferry systems between Sidney and Washington ports,
the concrete paving was continued on this road to Sidney (2.38 miles). Another important
paving project on Vancouver Island was the hard-surfacing of 2 miles of the South Wellington
Road south of Nanaimo. An asphalted macadam surface 7 inches thick was very satisfactorily
laid by contract. A modification of this method was adopted in the fall of 1923 to restore the
ravelled surface of the Dewdney Trunk Road adjacent to the Mental Hospital, Essondale.
Classification of Highways.
Good progress continues to be made in this important matter, and as the result of closer
co-operation between the Department and the municipalities the results are even better than
anticipated. Chief among the works jointly undertaken were the hard-surfacing of about 1%
miles of the Boundary Bay Road in Delta Municipality and of about 2 miles of the West Saanich
Road in Saanich Municipality.
Eight highways (31.31 miles), details of which are given in a separate report, were classified
as secondary. The total mileages of roads classified to date are 113.S6 miles of primary and
187.11 miles of secondary.
Bridges.
Owing to the abnormal spring freshets, more extensive bridge renewals and repairs, particularly on Vancouver Island, were necessary than usual. Ordinary maintenance continues to prove
a heavy drain on the bridge appropriations, and towards minimizing such expenditures many
worn-out bridges are being replaced by culverts and fills. Where large timber structures, such
as the Columbia River Bridge at Revelstoke (built in 1910) and the Thompson River Bridge,
Kamloops (built in 1902), require reconstruction, steel has been used. Details of these steel
structures and the proposed new steel bridge over the Skeena River at Terrace are supplied
elsewhere. In the reconstruction of many bridges it has been possible to effect considerable
economy by changing the location so as to shorten spans and improve approaches. Steel bridges
at Trail, Taghum, and the Pitt River were scraped and repainted by up-to-date methods.
Practically all bridges of any consequence have been serially numbered. Enamelled signs now
in use are found to be neatest and most economical.
Ferries.
Owing to the increasing settlement and traffic due to the opening-up of the Revelstoke-
Arrowhead Road, an additional ferry service to that presently in use at Hall's Landing was
found necessary.    A current-ferry was therefore installed on the Columbia River at 12-Mile. 15 Geo. 5
Report of Public Works Engineer.
L 7
Three new pontoon ferries were installed over the Skeena River at Hazelton, Kitwanga, and
Copper City, the ferry at the latter place being operated by the residents. Material improvements continue to be made on the smaller ferries, chiefly in the way of improved landings and
better controlling devices on scow ferries.
Motor-vehicles, etc.
As will be noted from the following table, the numbers of motor-vehicles registered in the
Province have increased 600 per cent, during the past decade. Last year's registration was an
increase of about 6,000, or almost as many cars as were in operation in the whole Province
in 1914.

Of the 39,472 motor-vehicles registered in 1923, 6,420, or about 17 per cent., were trucks,
mostly of 2 tons and under capacity. There was also an abnormal increase of foreign cars on
our highways during the summer and fall of 1923. That the hard-surfacing of the Pacific
Highway, the principal entrance to British Columbia from the United States, chiefly contributed
to the growth of this tourist traffic is clearly shown by the following comparative figures of the
cars crossing the United States boundary to British Columbia:—

* Owing to paving of Pacific Highway all cars were put through the Douglas  Customs.
Considerable progress was made towards regulating extraordinary vehicular traffic, a
problem affecting not only hard-surfaced roads but also our earth and gravel roads. The latter
types largely used by lumber and mining companies for transportation of heavy loads by tractor
as well as by truck. While a few parties caused the Department some trouble and expense,
generally speaking the owners and operators of such extraordinary traffic evidenced a sincere
desire to co-operate with the district officials in the attempt " to regulate the load to suit the
road." In several instances contributions of labour and material have been made by lumber
and other industrial companies towards the upkeep of such heavily travelled roads.
General.
With the exception of hard-surfacing, which constituted a record for the Department, the
year 1923-24 proved a normal one. Considering the excellent nature and the extent of the
maintenance-work done throughout the Province, the year was altogether most successful.
With the years of experience of the special requirements of their respective districts, the district
officials have much creditable work to their account, and are worthy of special mention in this
report. For the assistance rendered by them and the other officials connected with the Department I have nothing but praise, and would here record the splendid services rendered all round.
The sympathetic co-operation and practical advice, which was always forthcoming from the
Honourable the Minister and yourself, have greatly encouraged me in the solution of many
problems.
The accompanying reports of the District Engineers and the Supervising Architect give
greater detail of the works carried out during the year.
All of which is respectfully submitted.
P.  PHILIP,
Public Works Engineer. L 8 Public Works Report  (1923-24).
ENGINEERING DISTRICT No. 1.
(Note.—There is no District Engineer for this Engineering District, Assistants report direct
to Public Works Engineer.)
Report of P. J. Campbell, General Foreman for Islands and Saanich
Electoral Districts.
Roads.—North Saanich: The concrete paving 16 feet wide was continued on the East
Saanich Road from the end of the existing paving at Breed's Cross-road to the Government
Wharf at Sidney, 2.38 miles. This work was made necessary owing to the rapidly increasing
heavy traffic to Sidney, also to meet the extremely heavy motor traffic caused by the installation
of the Bellingham and Anacortes motor-ferries with Sidney. All last summer there was, without
exaggeration, a continual stream of motor traffic either way, between Sidney and Victoria, a
distance of about 17 miles.
To meet traffic demands it was also necessary to erect a modern rock-crushing plant at
North Saanich owing to the impossibility of keeping the roads in repair with gravel in that
vicinity.
Saltspring Island.—Several miles of roads were reconstructed and finished off with crushed
rock. The crusher worked continuously for over three months and over 4,000 cubic yards of
crushed rock were distributed over the Island. This was made possible by using light Ford
trucks, distributing as far as 7 miles from the crusher, making one return trip per hour and
travelling over IOO miles per working-day.
All roads throughout the Island received special attention in the matter of maintenance
and ditching, with a liberal use of three-way drags. Patrol-work was also undertaken where
practicable.
Saanich District (primary and secondary roads) : Considerable paving repairs were done
to the Gorge Road and about 2 miles of new bituminous paving were laid on the West Saanich
Road by the Saanich Municipality day-labour forces, the Government contributing half the cost.
Government roads in Saanich District received the usual general repairs, including maintenance and ditching.    Some reconstruction was also done.
Bridges.—Eight bridges were reconstructed and minor repairs done to several others
throughout the district.    Three bridges were substituted with fills.
Machinery and Plant.—A large proportion of the efficiency and good results obtained during
the year are due to the modern machinery used in the district.
I would like to mention the support and loyalty given by all the staff, also to thank the
Department for the kind assistance and courtesy given throughout the year.
Report of G. Donnelly, Assistant District Engineer for Cowichan, Nanaimo,
and Newcastle Electoral Districts.
Roads and Trails.— (a.) Maintenance: The roads were maintained in a very satisfactory
manner, only a few complaints having been received. These complaints were due to heavy truck
haulage on roads never constructed to stand such abnormal traffic, especially in the wet season.
Owing to the extraordinary traffic the Cowichan Lake Road received particular attention. It is
in very good repair, but it would be necessary to spend a very large sum to widen and improve
this important highway. In addition to the usual maintenance many improvements were
effected.
(6.) Construction and reconstruction: The following new w7orks were carried out:—
Cowichan District: Completion of Anderson's Road, Shawnigan Lake, 0.5 mile; road to Deer-
holme Station, 0.06 mile; road to Shawnigan Lake Station, 0.30 mile. Nanaimo District:
Hamilton Avenue, 0.26 mile, and Morpeth Avenue; opening up road at Chase River, Hatcher's
Road, 0.75 mile. Newcastle District: Brawn's Road, 0.33 mile; Fourth Avenue Extension,
1.18 mile;  road for J. M. Virostko, 0.39 mile;  and Anderson's Road, 0.28 mile.
Cowichan District, Fisher Road: Great improvements were made to this road; all the
dangerous curves were straightened, narrow places widened, drainage well attended to, all brush
cut away, and dangerous stumps removed.
Similar work to the above was carried out on the Halhed Road and Cameron-Taggart Road,
and also to many other roads.   ^^^^l^^^-T^^^^^^y^^P^^WrT
.
o  15 Geo. 5 Engineering District No. 1. L 9
" Mines Development Act" : Work was done on the Mount Brenton Trail, the Old Rinehart
Trail, and on the trails to the Silver Leaf Group Mineral Claims on Jump River.
The weather conditions were very favourable and consequently little trouble was experienced
with regard to frost and rain;  the total absence of snow also helped matters very considerably.
River-bank Protection.—The Haslam Creek broke through its east bank near the bridge and
scoured away a long section of the Waterloo Road, which was made good.
Erosion of river-bank, Nanaimo River, necessitated the cribbing 301 feet of river-bank on
Raines Road and gravel-filling.
Pending more permanent improvements necessary to satisfactorily retain the Island Highway,
the sea-wall, Cowichan Bay, was patched up in places.
Several large log-jams were removed in time to save some of the bridges from damage or
destruction.
Bridges.—Some forty-five bridges were repaired and minor repairs to thirty-one others were
carried out. In Cowichan District, Bonsall Creek Bridge, No. 7-3, and Cherry Point Bridge,
No. 7-121, were renewed; and in Newcastle, Dry Creek Bridge, No. 22-42, and Smoky Hollow
Bridge, No. 22-43, were renewed.
General.—Motor traffic on the Island highways has increased enormously, and, as it is
ever-increasing, I consider the time has arrived when some better material than gravel will be
required for the principal highways.
From a motorist's point of view, the most important work carried out in 1923 was the hard-
surfacing of 2 miles of the South Wellington Road, south of Nanaimo. The road-bed was
widened and straightened, the old surface scarified, and a new road-surface of bituminous
macadam 7 inches thick laid by the penetration method. This work, which was very satisfactorily undertaken by contract, has proved of inestimable benefit to the innumerable motorists
who use this important highway serving a mining district.
Report or O. W. Smith, Assistant District Engineer for Comox Electoral District.
Roads.—Construction: New roads constructed in this district amounted to 7.5 miles, as
follows: No. 64, Gainsberg's Road, 0.5 mile; No. 6S, Huband's Road, 0.7 mile; No. 71, Hardy
Bay-Coal Harbour, 4.5 miles; No. 113, Tsolum River Road, 0.7 mile; No. 120, Maruya Road,
0.5 mile;  No. 135, Powell River to Lot 3015, 0.3 mile;  roads for Isart and Perez, 0.3 mile.
Maintenance: The rapid increase in volume, weight, and speed of auto traffic makes
increasingly difficult the task of maintaining the travelled roads in good condition. The best-
gravelled roads under this concentrated traffic will not maintain a good surface long and require
frequent attention. In addition to ordinary passenger traffic, the truck-logging industry increased
greatly during the past year. Logging-trucks are operating on our main and lateral roads,
carrying gross loads from 10 to 15 tons. The best-gravelled roads cannot stand such traffic
without deterioration, thereby adding to our maintenance problems. If the traffic of all kinds
in this district keeps on increasing as in the past two years, more funds will be needed to
maintain the roads in a satisfactory condition.
In December last our roads were subjected to an unusual flood, causing considerable damage
in places to the road-bed and culverts. The past winter being mild and without snow, the
traffic has been continuous over the roads, which often were so softened by heavy rains that they
were in poor condition to bear it. By constant work and attention the main roads have been
well maintained in spite of many difficulties.
Surveys: Important road surveys were made at Hardy Bay for the Hardy Bay-Coal Harbour
Road, and also on the Mainland for the proposed road from Powell River to Lang Bay. A preliminary survey was made for the proposed extension of the main road at Sayward to Campbell
River.
River-bank Protection.—In conjunction with the Federal Department of Public Works,
necessary river-bank protection costing about $2,000 was built on the Tsolum River, Island Highway, at Courtenay to protect the road at that point.
Bridges.—The most important structure built during the year was the steel bridge over the
Courtenay River at Courtenay, to replace the old 160-foot Howe truss built over twenty years
ago. Being the first steel highway bridge built by the Department on Vancouver Island, it
inaugurated the adoption of a much superior type of structure for important bridges on
Vancouver Island. The White River Bridge across the White River at Sayward was renewed by two king
trusses.
During the flood of December last four trestle bridges and one queen span were either wholly
or partly destroyed. Temporary crossings were in some cases provided to permit traffic to
proceed during the Christmas season, and later permanent structures were built. Replanking
and repairs were carried out on a number of bridges In various parts of the district. In some
cases it was found advisable to replace bridges with culverts and fills.
All the bridges of the trestle type in this district were formerly built with framed fir
bents and caps, but wherever bridges of this type have to be replaced cedar pile-bents and caps
are adopted, as this practice will add greatly to the life of such structures. A portable pile-
driving outfit has been equipped to facilitate such work.
I take this opportunity to express my appreciation of the faithful and loyal services given
by local foremen and assistants.
Report of C. A. Helgesen, General Foreman for Esquimalt Electoral District.
Roads.—Work done during the past year has been chiefly that of maintenance and repairs,
including reconstruction of worn-out sections where needed. The smallness of the district vote
has precluded any new work being undertaken, only one new road having been built to provide
access to Shawnigan Lake, from the main road to the lake-side at a point south of Julius
Barrons Bay.
Considerable improvements have been done towards widening roads at bad turns and
dangerous corners, as well as erection of over a mile of ground-railing at dangerous sections
of the Malahat Drive, which has caused much favourable comment from the motoring public.
The road-bed of this highway was resurfaced 12 feet wide for 2 miles.
Two diversions from main roads have been made—one at Coal Creek to reduce the grade
of the dangerous 23-per-cent. hill on the west side of the creek to a uniform grade of under
10 per cent., and one on the Jordan River end of the road, from Bridge 11-61 to the head of
hill immediately above the power-house and plant of the Vancouver Island Power Company.
This improvement straightens out and shortens the road and eliminates two bridges, thereby
effecting a direct saving for the future. Work on this was commenced late in the fall, but
owing to wet weather it was not completed until the spring.
The Latoria Road was graded for % mile and gravelled 14 feet wide.
To satisfy the growing demands from the residents of Sooke District, as well as the
travelling public, a road giving access to Whiffen Spit Beach from the end of Muir Avenue was
commenced in the fall.    Completion of this road will enable residents to drive direct to the beach.
Bridges.—Special attention has been paid to replacing old structures and seeing that new
bridges were built, not only stronger than formerly, but of better design and finish, to cope with
the heavier modern traffic. Foundations have in all cases been of such material that may be
expected to last for at least twenty-five years.
On the Island Highway, over Goldstream, two new king trusses have been put in on solid
concrete foundations and a start made on the third.
As shown in the detailed report, nine new bridges have been put in and repairs made to
some twenty.
Report of W. P. Beavan, Assistant District Engineer for Alberni District.
Roads and Trails.—Except for the had storm early in December, weather conditions were
favourable throughout the year, so that maintenance-work done was generally effective. All the
more important roads have been maintained in good condition.
New construction-work comprised the following roads: No. 105, Boorman Road extension,
0.5 mile; No. 211, Fern Road, 0.5 mile, giving a direct route to store and post-office at Qualicum;
No. 221, Kaye Road, entirely new construction, 1.25 miles; No. 18, Ucluelet-Tofino Road, was
extended 3.29 miles and an additional 2.7 miles of the road were cleared and rough-graded, to
the apparent satisfaction of the isolated people on the west coast; No. 183, Bainbridge Road,
between Alberni and Bainbridge, was substantially improved, many narrow places and sharp
curves having been widened.
In conjunction with the Department of Mines, improvements were made to the following
mining-trails :   Big Interior Trail, China Creek Trail, Elk River Trail, and Taylor Trail.  Concrete paving. 18 feet wide.     Pacific Highway, 1923
Concrete paving, 18 feet wide.    Pacific Highway.   15 Geo. 5 Report of Engineer, District No. 2. L 11
Bridges.—Bridge-work, all undertaken by day-labour, consisted of the following: The
construction of an entirely new standard trestle bridge, No. 19a, on the Sebastion Road at
Lantzville, affording three settlers access to their places. Replacement of Bridge No. 23 at
French Creek, Parksville, by a 1.00-foot span Howe truss and standard trestle approaches.
Eighteen trestle bridges were reconstructed at an average cost of about $7.50 per lineal foot,
inclusive of all labour and material; 117 old bridges were maintained and repaired at an average
cost of about $66 per bridge (exclusive of cost of whitewashing).
Miscellaneous Works.—Owing to the heavy December storms, protection-work was undertaken at French Creek. Small log-jams were removed from Cameron River as they were a
menace to the Island Highway. At Spruce River, near Holberg, large jams which had considerably demaged the Holberg-Cape Scott Road were cleared aw7ay.
REPORT OF ENGINEER, DISTRICT No. 2.
District Engineer's Office,
Court-house, New Westminster, B.C., July 22nd, 1924.
P. Philip, Esq.,
Public Works Engineer, Victoria, B.C.
Sir.—I have pleasure in submitting my report for the year 1923-24.
Chilliwack District.—The most important works carried out during the year were as
follows:—
Paving Trans-Provincial Highway: This section of highway runs southerly 3.21 miles from
the southern boundary of Chilliwack City to the cross-roads 0.7 mile south of Sardis. The
pavement is 16 feet wide and has a 2-inch bitulithic wearing surface, Type B, on a 3-inch
asphaltic concrete base. The existing macadam road was scarified to such a depth as to
provide sufficient material to make up the subgrade and 18-inch shoulders. The old road-bed
provided an excellent foundation for the pavement. Approximately 450 feet of 6-inch water-
pipe laid under the road-bed had to be relaid. A through drainage system was provided for
by side-ditches along both sides of the pavement.    Metal pipe was used for all culverts.
Vedder River-bank Protection: Section A of this work, comprising the rebuilding of the
rock wall, was completed August 23rd. Approximately 12,500 cubic yards of large-sized rock
were hauled from a quarry about half a mile distant to make the rock-fill. The rock wall
withstood the heavy winter freshet, with the exception of a small section of the slope being
torn out by a large tree floating down the river and dislodging about 10 cubic yards of 'rock.
This section was repaired immediately the water receded.
Section B of the protection-work, comprising the clearing, straightening, deepening, and
general improvements of the Vedder River, between the British Columbia Electric Railway
Bridge and the Vedder River Crossing, a distance of 3% miles, was cleared of all log-jams,
previous to the freshets of February 1st and 11th, for a width of 300 feet. A large number of
submerged logs and roots were blasted out of the main channel; 1,600 feet of new channel were
excavated, giving the river a more direct flow, and several rock-filled cribs were built to stop
the flt>w of water in channels where damage was being done to the banks during high water.
Several channels were filled with logs and in some cases dykes were built.
During the February 1st freshet considerable drift was brought down the river. Another
freshet followed on February 11th; the river rose 9 feet in twenty-four hours, forming several
bad jams, which caused the cleared channel to silt up in some places and diverting the flow to
new channels. Further clearing of log-jams was done and some pile wing-dams were driven and
filled with brush, securely laced by wire, to prevent further erosion of banks near the British
Columbia Electric Railway at Woodroofe. Drift-logs and large roots deposited by the last flood,
where jams are likely to form, were removed. Owing to the amount of gravel and trees brought
down by each freshet the channel is continually changing, generally swinging into the bank.
Chilliwack River Road: Reconstruction of the road around the gravel-slide, a distance of
1,100 feet, was completed during the year. The freshet in February caused some damage by
scouring out a portion of the new fill. This section was repaired and reinforced with piling
driven alongside the log crib. L 12 Public Works Report  (1928-24).
Ferries: The Agassiz-Rosedale Ferry " Sea Wolf " has given excellent service. Weather
conditions were favourable throughout the winter months and little maintenance was required to
the ferry landings.
General: The usual maintenance-work was carried out on the Trans-Provincial Highway.
Although the motor traffic during the fiscal year greatly exceeded the traffic of previous years, the
highway was kept in better repair, due to the fact that a better system has been established,
and made possible by the use of light trucks for patrol-work. About 18,000 cubic yards of gravel
were used on the highway. Particular attention was paid to grading and dragging throughout
the year. The highway has been widened out in many places and drainage improved. Many old
cedar culverts have been replaced by metal pipe.
Maintenance on the bridges was very light, with only one 30-foot bridge renewed and several
refloored.
Delta District.—The major work for the year consisted of completing the Trans-Provincial
and Pacific Highway paving, thus providing a paved road between Vancouver and the International Boundary at Blaine.
Serpentine Flats Fill: Anticipating the paving of this portion of the Trans-Provincial Highway later in the year, the clay-fill put in the previous summer was examined and found wanting.
It had settled very irregularly and was at no point up to grade. The gravel surface was also
much too narrow to provide shoulders for a pavement. Accordingly, 11,000 cubic yards of gravel
were hauled in by truck to bring the fill up to grade. This provided a well-drained foundation
for the concrete and also provided material for necessary shoulders.
Nicomekl Flats: These being subject to flood owing to inadequate drainage as well as their
low elevation, it was apparent that both filling and ditching were absolutely necessary in order
to put this section in shape for paving. In all. 19,500 cubic yards of gravel were placed in this
fill.    A drag-line shovel was used on this work and it gave good service.
These ditches proved their worth during the flood season of last winter, but their efficiency
could be greatly increased by constructing flood-gates at their outlets on the Nicomekl River.
As the flow of the flood-water is westerly, culverts were placed under the fill, at intervals,
to ensure against the fill acting as a dam and to make both ditches do equal duty in carrying off
the water.
Cement Concrete Paving: The contract for this work was let to A. B. Palmer & Co., Limited,
late in March, and paving operations were started on that portion of the Trans-Provincial Highway known as the Serpentine Flats on April 6th.
The contractor started pouring concrete on April 12th and finished this section on May 3rd,
laying in this time 7,296 lineal feet (1.3S miles) of pavement IS feet wide and 8% inches thick.
This-was remarkable progress.
The reason the slabs on this section were increased from the standard 7-inch to a thickness
of 8% inches was due to the fact that this pavement was laid on a fill of from 2 to 5 feet, and
although this fill had had a year to settle, it was deemed advisable to strengthen the slabs in
this way, to ensure resistance to cracking, which might occur should there be further settlement
in the fill.
On the completion of the Serpentine Flats section the mixer was moved to the International
Boundary and work started on the last link in the Pacific Highway.
It has been the intention to use the standard 7-inch slab here, but weakness developing
in the subgrade, the slab was thickened to 8% inches as a precautionary measure; 1,190 lineal
feet of S^-inch were laid to a point where the stability of the subgrade warranted a return to
the 7-inch slab.
This type of slab was laid continuously until the Nicomekl Flats were reached. Here a new
fill had been put in the previous winter and. the slab was therefore increased in thickness to
Sy2 inches. This type of slab was laid continuously through to the completion of the work at
Cloverdale.
The pouring of concrete on the Pacific Highway section commenced on May 6th and finished
on August 3rd. In this time 21.000 lineal feet (3.9 miles) of 7-inch and 15,780 lineal feet (2.9
miles) of 8%-inch pavement IS feet wide were laid;   a very creditable performance indeed.
For 7-inch slab the average pour was 1,162 square yards=581 lineal feet in nine hours;
for 7-inch slab the maximum pour was 1,440 square yards=720 lineal feet in nine hours;   for 15 Geo. 5 Report of Engineer, District No. 2. L 13
S%-inch slab the average pour was S73 square yards=436.5 lineal feet in nine hours; for
8%-inch slab the maximum pour was 1,206 square yards=603 lineal feet in nine hours.
The total material used on the work was as follows: Cement, 135,995 sacks; sand, 10,095
cubic yards; gravel, 15,070 cubic yards. The material w7as handled by trucks from the Cloverdale bunkers.
For the Serpentine Flats the aggregates were proportioned into batch-boxes at the bunkers,
the cement being hauled and piled on the grade. The system worked admirably and good clean
aggregates were ensured.
On starting operations on the Pacific Highway the contractor was confronted with a long
truck-haul of 7 miles and the batch-box system was abandoned for the time. Hence, for this
section, the aggregates and cement were piled on the subgrade after it had been graded. The
aggregates were hauled to the mixer in three Ford trucks with dump-bodies. The coarse
aggregates were loaded into the trucks with a Barber-Greene loader equipped with a measuring-
hopper.    The sand was loaded by hand-labour.
This system has its advantages, the principal one being the sufficiency of materials always
on hand. If the material gets low the trucks can haul by night and so keep the supply well
ahead. r
On reaching the Nicomekl Flats the batch-box system was resumed and continued to the
completion of the work.    This is the ideal method for a short haul.
Two new ideas were introduced on this work, both being applied on the steep grades on
the Blaine Hill. The first was an anchor or a rib of concrete on the bottom of alternative slabs
to prevent them from creeping downhill. The second was a metallic expansion-joint to prevent
water from the surface reaching the subgrade via the expansion-joint when the concrete is
contracted during cold w7eather. To date these are functioning well. A little trouble was
experienced locally with a wet subgrade, but four French drains V-shaped in plan overcame this
condition.
Three experimental panels were put in during the course of the work. A 1-2-4 mix was
used on the last panel on the Serpentine Flats. A similar mix was used in a panel on the top
of,the Blaine Hill and a l-l%-3 mix was used in a panel at Cloverdale on the completion of
the work. All of these panels are standing up well and there is no appreciable difference between
them and the ordinary panels made with the standard 1-2-3 mix.
On the steep grades on the Blaine Hill an S-foot gravelled shoulder was constructed on each
side of the pavement to accommodate* vehicular traffic during the winter season, when the
concrete is liable to be ice-covered and slippery. These shoulders are used considerably even
during the summer months by horse-drawn vehicles as well as motors.
From the Blaine Hill to the International Boundary a 6-foot shoulder was constructed on
each side of the pavement from material taken from the side-ditches.
As the traffic increases, the importance of wide shoulders becomes more and more apparent,
as cars stopping for repairs or other reasons may park clear of the pavement, thus leaving the
paved portion unrestricted.
Boundary Bay Road: During the year Boundary Bay Road from Ladner to the bay was
added to the list of secondary highways and 1.24 miles of asphalt macadam was laid. This
consisted of a 3-inch covering of crushed rock treated with 2% gallons per square yard of
" D " grade asphalt sprayed under pressure. The work was carried out under the supervision
of the municipality and is to-day in perfect condition.
Ladner Trunk Road: No maintenance was required on the paving laid three years ago on
the Ladner Trunk Road, with the exception of increasing the width of gravel shoulders where
the same were considered too narrow for the safety of the travelling public. One thousand lineal
feet on this highway that had not been hard-surfaced, however, had to be dealt with. Here a
4%-inch asphaltic macadam surface was constructed and is proving satisfactory.
General: The maintenance of the gravel roads on the Trans-Provincial Highway was carried
out as usual, more attention being paid to grading and dragging on account of the increased
motor traffic. Many narrow sections of the road were widened out; several old culverts were
replaced with metal pipe and considerable ditching was done.
Dewdney District.—During this year the sum of $44,325 was expended in maintenance alone.
Of this amount about $10,000 might be classed as extraordinary expenditure, the remainder of
the vote being spent on purely maintenance-work. L 14 Public Works Report (1923-24).
The main roads have been well taken care of and were all kept in good condition throughout the winter, with the possible exception of Dewdney Trunk No. 2, from Maillardville to
Essondale. Owing to paving proposals this section of oiled macadam did not receive the same
attention.
The side-roads were also kept in good condition, with the exception of Salvaster Road, which
was practically destroyed during the winter by logging traffic, but has since been reconstructed.
A somewhat  different  system  of  gravel-road  maintenance  has  been  inaugurated  in  this
district.    Briefly, it is as follows:—
(1.)  The camber is cut to a minimum.
(2.) All new gravel used as a wearing surface is screened, leaving no pebbles larger than
1 inch, and spread in layers not exceeding 2 inches in thickness. The gravel thus laid is chosen
as clean as possible and no binder whatever is used.
(3.)  The surface is dragged or graded often, whether the weather is wet or dry.
At the time of writing (July, 1924) the surfaces thus maintained are in excellent condition,
and some of the roads are carrying a very heavy traffic with a minimum of expense  and
discomfort to the travelling public.
The above procedure is recommended for heavy-duty roads. The first point to be borne in
mind is to obtain a flat camber and a fine wearing course that can be graded when dry. It is
absolutely necessary that such a road be kept dragged in dry weather, otherwise the surface
will become pitted and a rough riding road will follow.
The Wehr-Fordson grader supplied to this district is an excellent maintainer and has
reduced grading costs over the old methods by at least half. The average cost per swath of
the S-foot blade is under 50 cents per mile in the case of the Wehr-Fordson, costs allowing for
everything, including depreciation.
All our surfacing gravel is screened over a grizzly hung in front of the spout of the
mechanical loaders. The extra cost of handling the gravel in this w7ay does not exceed
5 cents per yard.

Bridges: All bridges in the district were inspected thoroughly during the year, renumbered
throughout, and new bridge register compiled.
The total expenditure on bridges amounted to $32,200.91, segregated as follows: Maintenance, $4,876.73; new construction, $1,677.64; Pitt River Bridge, cleaning, painting, overhauling
machinery, and construction of bridge-tender's cottage, $25,646.54.
Ferries: No new7 work has been undertaken in connection with the Mission Ferry. The
ferry itself has not had an overhaul this year.    Total expenditure, $11,067.47.
New Westminster District.—No work other than a small amount of maintenance was found
necessary during the year. 15 Geo. 5 Report of Engineer, District No. 2. L 15
North Vancouver District.—The past year in North Vancouver has been a very strenuous
one, inasmuch as the country is so sparsely settled, and the great increase of auto traffic through
the district has changed conditions so much that it has almost got beyond the powers of the
most skilled man to give the roads the attention required with the small amount of money
available.
During the year the work of the Department was mostly confined to keeping the main
highways in passable condition, in repairing roads and bridges, the main object of the Department being to help out the settlers who are trying to make a living on the land.
In the Pender Harbour District the Healy Trail has now been extended to the head of
Pender Harbour, which takes in Bear Lake and Garden Bay Lake. It is hoped that there will
shortly be connection made with the Nor' West Bay Road west of Sechelt, which will give
complete access to the coast-line from Smith's Landing, 4 miles north of Gibson's, to Pender
Harbour. ,
The majority of the settlers in Pemberton Meadows have now got a good road to the Pacific
Great Eastern Railway. This road has been built up in order to prevent water getting over,
and in most cases has been satisfactory, except in extraordinarily high water, when the Lillooet
River overflows its banks and may in some places overflow the road.
In the neighbourhood of Squamish Village and for some distance up the valley a great deal
of trouble has been experienced with the freshets of the Mamquam River. The overflow from
this river is continually undermining bridges and damaging roads, but no remedy can be undertaken without the expenditure of a large amount of money, more than seems warranted at the
present time. It is somewhat discouraging to find maintenance-work having to be continually
watched and in some cases reconstructed, but a careful examination of the situation reveals the
fact that it is more economical to carry out the maintenance as hitherto, even at considerable
expense, than to go into a large river-control scheme.
Richmond District.—The maintenance-work during the year consisted chiefly of repairing
the Marine Drive, Imperial Street, and No. 3 Road, which runs from Eburne to Woodward's
Landing. The Marine Drive has given considerable trouble during the heavy rains owing to
the very high banks which the water has to pass before reaching English Bay. There have been
considerable surveys made in order to determine the proper points to place the outlets, and the
Department should lose no further time in having an early start made on the work.
The Ladner-Woodward Ferry has been running fairly regularly and has not had many
mishaps during the year. The vessel is not at all suited for the handling of heavy traffic owing
to the method of having to load from the sides. By this system of loading it is almost impossible
to handle traffic without one car damaging the other.
Considerable public works were carried out in connection with the development of the
Point Grey lands. About 110 acres were cleared and grubbed and about 70 acres grubbed.
A. contract was let for grading some 5 miles of streets and these are now in splendid condition
for hard-surfacing with any type of pavement.
South Vancouver District.—The total amount expended under the district vote totals
$8,406.78. This amount w7as spent in general maintenance by and under the direct supervision
of the Corporations of South Vancouver and Burnaby, with the exception of some $1,164.98 for
general expenses.
A further sum of $13,499.17 was expended, chargeable against Highway Loan, on general
construction-work. Ditching and widening Hastings-Barnet Road and constructing new
shoulders, about $5,000. About $1,500 was spent in constructing new culverts on Riverway,
while the sum of $7,000 went towards paving Victoria Road, now classified as a secondary
highway. On this highway over 4,700 square yards of 1 course concrete pavement were laid.
Grand total, South Vancouver, $21,905.95.
All of which is respectfully submitted.

REPORT OF ENGINEER, DISTRICT No. 3.    ,
District Engineer's Office,
Kamloops, B.C., August 21st, 1924.
P. Philip, Esq.,
Public Works Engineer, Victoria, B.C.
Sir,—I beg to submit the following report of work carried out in Kamloops and Yale Electoral Districts during the fiscal year 1923-24:—
Kamloops Electoral District.—The most important work carried out was the completion of
the Chase-Squilax-Sorrento Road, the last stretch of 6% miles being completed in the late fall,
giving the residents of the Shuswap Lake District an outlet to Kamloops, shorter by 30 miles
than previously and a maximum grade of 6 per cent.
The elimination of the heavy grade over Kault Hill, on the Kamloops-Salmon Arm Highway
was also completed; very heavy wrork was encountered, and while handicapped by being directly
over the Canadian Pacific Railway tracks, rock on this work was handled at a very low cost.
Several settlers' roads were extended during the year in the Shuswap and North Thompson
Subdivisions, the two pioneer portions of the district. Besides the ordinary repairs, work of a
permanent nature was carried on, on the Kamloops-Chase Road in the w7ay of macadamizing,
a large rock crusher plant being installed 1% miles east of Ducks.
Work on the new concrete and steel bridge across the Thompson River, to replace the Kamloops West Bridge, was started in the late fall, and at the end of the fiscal year the substructure
was practically completed, without mishap.
Yale Electoral District.—The usual Spring repairs were carried out in the district during
the months of April, May, and June, after which several small pieces of work under the " Highway Loan Act " were undertaken. Two diversions, one 2,800 feet in length and the other 3,600
feet, were constructed on the Merritt-Spences Bridge Road. These were for grade reduction
and the elimination of two level railway-crossings, as well as improvement in grade and alignment generally _
About 4 miles of road were constructed in the Summers Creek District near Princeton, to
serve the ranchers who had been there some fifteen years without any road to haul in supplies
or take produce out. This road was constructed only 8 feet in width, but good grades and alignment were held.
On the Merritt-Kamloops Road several small pieces of reconstruction were carried out,
mostly widening rock points on sharp curves along Nicola Lake, where several accidents have
occurred. Improvements were also made on the 1-Mile Road between Merritt and Princeton
and on the Spences Bridge-Ashcroft Road.
About 6 miles of mining trail were built in the vicinity of Hope, to help prospectors open
up new property under the " Mines Development Act."
No important bridge-work was undertaken in this district during the year, but the usual
maintenance and renewal works were done.
Respectfully submitted.

District Engineer.
REPORT OF ENGINEER, DISTRICT No. 4.
District Engineer's Office,
Penticton, B.C., June 13th, 1924.
P. Philip, Esq..
Public Works Engineer, Victoria, B.C.
Sir,—I beg to submit herewith annual report of work done in the above district during
the fiscal year 1923-24.
Roads.—During the year the traffic on our main roads has increased very considerably, and
it has taxed our efforts with the appropriations which have been allowed to take care of our
main arteries and keep the roads in condition for traffic. The amount appropriated for the
upkeep of these roads has not been increased to any extent during the last four or five years, Bear River Bridge, Stewart, B.C.
Pontoon ferry, Usk, B.C.  15 Geo. 5 Report of Engineer, District No. 4. L 17
and it has only been possible to keep them in condition by using the road machinery supplied
by the Department and increasing our road-patrol system. In view of the fact that there are
now approximately 3,000 miles of road under my supervision, all of which have been kept in
a reasonable state of repair for an average cost of less than $50 per mile, the results obtained
have been very satisfactory.
In North Okanagan District a considerable amount of improvements have been made,
especially on the main road between Vernon and Kelowna, including small diversions and
reduction of grades. There has also been constructed in this district a number of miles of
settlement roads.
The traffic, generally speaking, in this district is increasing at least one-fourth every year,
and the burden placed upon this Department (recognizing the fact that the appropriation has
not been increased) will bear out the contention that value has been given for the money
expended. This also applies to the parts of my district in which quite a number of miles of
new roads have been constructed in order to accommodate settlers who have taken up land
during the past year.
Considerable expenditures have been made in revisions of existing roads in order to eliminate
steep grades, which improvements have been very much appreciated by the public at.large.
In the Okanagan District considerable difficulty is experienced in the fall and early spring
in keeping the heavy traffic off the roads until such a time as we have an opportunity to put
them in proper condition. It must be generally admitted that it is impossible to maintain our
earth and gravel roads on the main highways for " extraordinary " traffic at certain times of
the year. As stated in former reports, in certain districts where this class of traffic obtains
during the whole year, it is absolutely necessary to have a permanent patrol system, w7hich
matter is under consideration. The cost of maintenance in the aggregate can be considerably
reduced in the future by having up-to-date machinery and eliminating the number of road foremen that we have to-day. I quite realize that these changes cannot be made at the moment,
but I am presenting these views for future consideration.
Trails.—A considerable amount of money has been expended during the past year in improving and opening out trails for mining purposes, fire rangers, timber-cruisers, and prospective
settlers who wish to examine some of the unsettled areas with a view to taking up pre-emptions.
Bridges.—Over 112 bridges have been repaired in this district and a number of smaller
bridges renewed. Special attention has been given to the bridges in this district by our Bridge
Engineer, Mr. Carruthers. No large structures were renewed in this district during the past
year.    With the exception of minor defects, all bridges are in first-class condition.
Ferries (all subsidized).—Three ferries are operated in this district, as follows: Shuswap
Lake Steamboat Service, which runs twice a. week. Kelowna-Westbank Ferry, which has been
operated in a satisfactory manner during the season. Summerland-Naramata Ferry: Our
ferryman on this route reports a considerable increase in traffic.
There have been no complaints in regard to the operation of any of these three ferries.
Miscellaneous.—In reviewing the work generally throughout this district during this year,
there are very few observations I can make which would be different from former years. It is
generally conceded by the settlers and residents of the district under my jurisdiction that every
consideration has been given by this Department, and I have received very few complaints
indeed as regards the work carried out.
All of which is respectfully submitted.

REPORT OF ENGINEER, DISTRICT No. 5.
District Engineer's Office,
Court-house, Nelson, B.C., July 25th, 1924.
P.  Philip, Esq.,
Public Works Engineer, Victoria, B.C.
Sir,—I beg to submit the following general report dealing with the work carried out in
Engineering District No. 5 during the fiscal year 1923-24:—
Roads and Trails.
Nelson Electoral District,—The usual maintenance-work was carried out on about 5 miles
of roads and streets, aud on the upper side of the Great Northern Railway near Mountain
Station a new diversion was constructed on a maximum grade of 12 per cent., eliminating
grades of nearly 20 per cent, on the old Subdivision Road. The length of this diversion was
about a quarter of a mile. No extensions were made to sidewalks, but old sidewalks were kept
in good repair.
Trail Electoral District.—Work on the main roads in the Trail District has been concentrated
on those sections of road on final location, and where it will be necessary in future to change
location and build diversions the existing roads were simply kept passable for traffic. Gravelling
operations by truck-haul were carried on as far as funds would permit, and altogether 5 miles
of main road were surfaced during the season. ■
Maintenance-work was undertaken on 250 miles of road and 30 miles of trails, and the Mines
Department financially assisted in the construction of 3 miles of road between the Salmon River
and the International Boundary, also on the maintenance of the Molly Gibson Mine Road and
the opening-up of the necessary mining-trails.
Out of our district appropriation we reconstructed 1.25 miles of the Kootenay River Road
near Beasley and constructed 2.04 miles of settlers' roads.
Rossland Electoral District,—The usual general repair-work was carried out on 42 miles
of roads, and a considerable quantity of crushed rock from the Rossland Mines was laid clown
where most needed on the Trail-Rossland and Rossland-Patterson Roads.
During the winter months the roads from Rossland to Trail were ploughed out, thus
permitting auto traffic to make use of the road all the year round.
All main trails were brushed where necessary, and lateral roads, used principally by settlers
and lumbering interests, were kept in good repair.
On the Rossland-Cascade Road, 4 miles from Mileage 15 to 19 were gravelled, and from
Mileage 19 to 40, a distance of 21 miles, ordinary repairs, widening, and ditching were gone
ahead with.
Kaslo Electoral District.—In the Kaslo Electoral District a large percentage of our appropriation was spent in the Creston Valley between Kuskanook and Goatfell. In this area alone
we carried out work on 103 miles of road out of a total of 230 miles on which work was done
in the whole of the Kaslo District.
The main road between Kuskanook and Goatfell, a distance of 39 miles, is on the route
of the Trans-Provincial Highway and requires a large expenditure of money to put it in good
condition for the ever-increasing through auto traffic.
The macadamizing of the trunk road in the vicinity of Creston and Erickson w7as continued
towards Duck Creek, and a stretch of three-quarters of a mile was oiled with 70 per cent,
asphaltic oil, with good results.
In the balance of the Kaslo District we maintained 124 miles of road and 183 miles of trail,
while the Department of Mines authorized assistance on other 16.5 miles of road and 25.5 miles
of trail.
Revelstoke Electoral District.—Two hundred and fifty-four miles of roads in the Revelstoke
District were repaired during the year and 10 miles were gravelled; 2.5 miles of lateral roads
for settlers were constructed and 10S miles of trails cleaned out, while 2.5 miles of new trail
were built.
All the heavier-travelled roads in the district were ploughed during the winter months, the
mileage of roads covered with the snow-plough being 97 miles, at a total cost of $1,354. 15 Geo. 5 Report of Engineer, District No. 5. L 19
River-bank protection w7ork was undertaken at points on the Illecillewaet and Eagle Rivers
respectively as a protection to public works.
Slocan Electoral District.—In the Slocan Electoral District there were 230 miles of roads
and 79 miles of trails maintained, while the Mines Department financially assisted in repairing
two stretches of mining-roads and in constructing over 3 miles of new trail.
River-bank protection-work was completed on Carpenter Creek opposite the townsite of
New Denver, and last season's high water scoured out a new channel away from the townsite,
just as we had anticipated.
Protection-work was also undertaken on Inonoaklin Creek, Eagle Creek, and the Sandon
flume.
Four miles of lateral roads and 1 mile of new trail were built during the season.
Bridges.
The following new truss spans were built:—
Trail Electoral. District.—One 45-50-foot king-truss span on concrete abutments over Salmon
River near Porto Rico on Nelson-Ymir Road; one 45-50-foot king-truss span on crib abutments
over Hall Creek on Nelson-Ymir Road.
Kaslo Electoral District.—One 60-64-foot king-truss span on pile abutments over Crawford
Creek-Crawford Bay.
Revelstoke Electoral District.—One 45-50-foot king-truss span on concrete abutments over
Gold Creek on Revelstoke-Arrowhead Road.
Slocan Electoral District.—One 100-105-foot Howe-truss span with 53 feet of pile approach
and 150 lineal feet of earth-till approach over Whatshan River near Needles.
In addition to the above, the following is a record of the general bridge-work undertaken
in Engineering District No. 5: 588 lineal feet of bridges replaced by culvert and fill; 25 truss
spans examined, trussed, and overhauled; 273 stringers and trestle bridges repaired; 13
stringer and trestle bridges constructed;   11 stringer and trestle bridges reconstructed.
During the fiscal year excellent progress was made on the construction of the new steel
structure over the Columbia River at Revelstoke to replace the existing timber structure built
in 1910. This bridge is 1,140 feet in length, comprising two 212-foot and four 154-foot steel-truss
spans and timber trestle approaches, and 20 feet in width inclusive of 5-foot sidewalk.
Ferries.
One new ferry was installed over the Columbia River at a point 12 miles south of Revelstoke.
This is on the route of the Revelstoke-Arrowhead Road and is a current-ferry. Besides carrying
through traffic, it is enabling lumbering interests to operate on their limits to the west of the
Columbia River, the ferry-site being close to a C.P.R. stop known as 12-Mile.
All the other ferries in the district continue to give efficient service, although ice conditions
on the West Arm of the Kootenay Lake during January and February, 1924, made it impossible
to operate the Nelson Ferry on regular schedule, conditions being so bad that the C.P.R. boats
tied up at Procter, being unable to break through to Nelson between January 15th and February
16th.
New Main Highways constructed in District No. 5 during 1923-24.
Trail Electoral District.—Completion of Nelson-Ymir Road, 6 miles; completion of Nelson-
United States Boundary Road, 3 miles.
Kaslo Electoral District.—Diversion on Creston-Goatfell Road from Goat River Crossing to
Kitchener, 3 miles.
Revelstoke Electoral District,—Completion of Revelstoke-Arrowhead Road, 4.5 miles.
Slocan Electoral. District.—Edgewood-Vernon Road, Deep Creek to Inonoaklin Crossing,
4 miles.
While submitting this report, might I respectfully suggest the urgency of larger appropriations for ever-increasing maintenance-work. Our ferry records show that the traffic is 100
per cent, greater over our roads now than it was three years ago, and with the opening-up of
other links now under construction (thus increasing both our road mileage and through traffic)
it will be almost impossible to keep the roads in even safe condition unless the ordinary district
appropriations are increased. L 20 Public Works Report  (1923-24).
AH the District General Foremen and Resident Engineers have given of their best to obtain
results for money expended during the year, and personally I wish to express my thanks to
the Department for considerations given to all matters submitted in connection with this
district.
Respectfully submitted.

REPORT OF ENGINEER, DISTRICT No. 6.
District Engineer's Office,
Cranbrook, B.C., June Sth, 1924.
P. Philip, Esq.,
Public Works Engineer, Victoria, B.C.
Sir,'—I beg to submit the following general report for Engineering District No. 6 for the
fiscal year ended March 31st, 1924:—
The important event of the year affecting roads was the opening of the Banff-Windermere
Highway on June 30th. This had the effect of tremendously increasing traffic over the Columbia
River Road between Cranbrook and points northerly, and 30 miles were constructed and gravelled
on this road alone. A feature of this work was the care given to the survey and final choice
of a suitable route, the departure from the old road between Wasa and Sheep Creek being well
warranted in the fact that the new route presented many miles of level open country, enabling
a fine type of road to be cheaply and quickly built and put into service by the time the Banff-
Windermere Road opened.
Improvements to the Trans-Provincial Highway, which in this district extends from Goatfell
on the west to the Alberta boundary at Crowsnest on the east, w7ere made at several points, and
a total of 2% miles were newly built. Included in these improvements were the new diversion
and railway crossing giving access to the town of Yahk, the widening of the rock cut at Swansea,
and the placing of guard-rails on hill 5 miles east of Cranbrook and on Fairy Creek Hill and
White Spruce Hill, a few miles east of Fernie.
Numerous other roads were constructed or reconstructed; noticeably, Fernie-Coal Creek,
McBane's Lake, diversion of Wardner-Gateway Road near Sand Creek, Standard Mine, Stem-
winder Mine, Haha Creek, Gold Creek, Arnold, Chinook, Dorney, Forde Station, Oberg & Johnson
extension, Red Rock, Sanborn, and Thompson Fort. On the Golden-Donald Lower Road two
railway crossings near Blaeberry River were changed from farm crossings with gates to open
public crossings, the grade of the approaches thereto having been greatly lessened by fills.
The Golden-Yoho Park Road was commenced, 2.2S miles being built by contract. The route
of this highway, following the famous Kicking Horse River Canyon with its view of winding
railway-track beside the swift river farlielow, and the impressive sight of the twisted and folded
rocks of the Rocky Mountains far above, is exceptional in its scenery.
The maintenance of main roads is beginning to take shape in this district in the form of
a system of patrol sectionmen, who have responsible duties in connection with the special mileage
of road allotted to each to maintain. Particular attention is being given to this phase of the
organization by the district road officials, that the very best results might be obtained at the
greatest economy. It is considered that the maintenance of roads is something to be studied
quite apaTt from construction engineering, and I have to thank your office in aiding me to get
the patrol system on an approved basis, and the assistants in the district for their energy and
help in placing and instructing the sectionmen.
A noticeable climatic feature of this fiscal year was the exceptional floods early in June,
1923, caused by heavy rains and affecting principally our roads and bridges along the Michel
and Elk Rivers.    Elk River rose 5 feet in one night.
The renewal of Loop Bridge and Michel Mouth Bridge and the river-bank protection now
being done at Natal are results of this flood. Fernie Annex suffered considerable inroads from
the waters and in many places the gravel surfacing on our roads was destroyed, with minor
wash-outs. On the whole, however, due to prompt measures taken, traffic was not unduly
delayed. Columbia River Road, No. 1, Columbia District.    Gravel road construction, 192

The winter of 1923-2-4 was also very exceptional in its mildness and lack of snow. For
instance, cars were used all winter between Fernie and Michel, something unheard of in this
locality before.
Considerable work was done by district officials in making surveys and plans of roads for
gazetting; noticeably, portions of Columbia River Road, Canal Flat Road, Lewis Creek Road,
Pighin, Meadowbrook Settlement, and Cranbrook-Kimberley Road.
A survey was made of the West Side Road from Dutch Creek to Invermere and the final
location survey of the Golden-Yoho Park Road was continued. Many surveys of lesser extent
for small road diversions, bridge-sites, and applications for roads were made by the assistants
and duly investigated by me in order to report thereon to headquarters.
The various towns under Government supervision were given attention in the matter of
streets and sidewalks, all as set out in detail in the annual returns. Further attention was given
to the drainage of Slaterville and a corrugated-iron 30-inch pipe with concrete headwall placed
on Leitch Street at the C.P.R. railway crossing. A drainage-ditch was placed on the main road
just east of Cranbrook to prevent the flooding of St. Joseph Prairie Settlement. Some drainage-
work was carried out at Invermere, a covered-over box flume being placed to drain away the
melting snow.
Bridges.—The contracts for Waldo, Skookumchuck, and Hosmer Bridges were successfully
completed after some set-backs due to the heavy floods above mentioned. The foundations of
the Waldo Bridge are worthy of special mention, being different from others in this district.
Four round caissons, two to each pier, 8 feet diameter, were built of wooden staves and gradually
sunk in place by excavating within them with a clam-shell bucket. These caissons were built
up as they were lowered, by adding staves, reinforcing with iron rings, both within and without
the barrel. The exceptional depth of the Kootenay River at this bridge-site and the very
precarious nature of the river-bottom required a length of 58 feet of barrel before safe bottom
was reached. Piles were then driven within each caisson and a sealing course of concrete placed,
and the piles cut off low down, after which concrete was poured in to fill the caissons. A concrete
web was then built above the caissons to the bridge-seats, the whole forming very neat and solid
piers. The 160-foot wooden Howe truss which was placed on these piers can quite easily be
renewed in steel should this be advisable at some future date.
Other bridges built were Elko, Lower Sand Creek, Premier, Copper Lake, Standard Mine,
Tata Creek, Jap Ranch, Red Rock, and Shuswap Creek.
Considerable work was done in maintaining and protecting the bridges generally, but due
to a progressive policy of designing good foundations and placing serviceable protection-work
where needed, the maintenance and saving of bridges at flood-time is becoming less and less of
a w7orry and expense.
Several bridges were replaced by culvert and fill, among them being Lame Joe's Bridge,
McKay, Kootenay Reserve No. 86, and St. Joseph Creek No. 9.
Trails.—The following were built or repaired: Alki Creek, Hellroaring Creek, Whitefish,
Bugaboo, Lake Maye, Horsethief, Michelson Creek, South Fork of Spillimacheen, Goldbeater, and
Leadville.
Ferries.—Flagstone had some attention in changing the landing-place and raising cable, and
Donald and Parson Ferries were renewed.
River-bank Protection.—Practically nothing was expended at Golden, the work done there
of late years proving its worth and efficiency. At the mouth of St. Mary River considerable
excavation was done to help turn the main river into a northerly channel, and a spur known as
an Indian mattress did effective work in keeping the river out and away from the southerly
bank. This Indian mattress is simply a number of rows of large stakes driven by sledge-hammer
and running out into the stream like a spur; brush is then woven in amongst these stakes and
held down with fence-wire; boulders are then thrown iu and over the brush and the wire twisted
over them to hold them in place.
In the vicinity of Fernie considerable work of a more or less temporary nature was don3 to
try to hold the banks over the high-water period. At Natal a survey and thorough investigation
were made of the most effective means of providing protection to the town and the Trans-
Provincial Highway from the inroads of Michel Creek, and work was commenced thereon.
Government Buildings.—A new lock-up was built at Kimberley and additions made to the
schools at Yahk and Kimberley.    The Cranbrook Court-house was painted and general repairs made to the building, as well as kalsomining to the interior, and considerable painting and
repairs were done to the Court-house at Golden.
Many subdivision plans were submitted for approval, but all of a rather minor nature, mostly
individual transfers of small parcels. The road requirements in connection therewith were
thoroughly investigated, however, and a number of changes recommended before the plans were
finally approved.
Applications to erect pole-lines along Government highways came in from the Dominion
Telephone Service, the Kootenay Telephone Lines, Limited, and from the East Kootenay Power
Company. A number of requests to install gas tanks and pumps, or place pipe-lines across or
along the roads, were also investigated and covered by permit.
Special attention was given to the erecting of road-signs at all points of likely confusion,
the names and mileages with arrow pointing being conspicuously placed, and mile-boards were
placed throughout the Trans-Provincial Highway.
The Cranbrook Government Garage handled a large amount of repair-work to the cars,
trucks, tractors, and other mechanical equipment for the district, and a great deal of assistance
and helpful advice was given us by Mr. Armstrong, the Mechanical Superintendent, on his visits
of inspection.
The following new plant was procured: Eight dump-carts; one highway-patrol grader ; one
Chevrolet car; one Ford car; fifteen steel drags for sectionmen; three Dominion graders
(two-horse) ; one Big Winner grader; one Peterborough canoe; one 1-ton Ford truck; one
gasolene Novo hoist-engine.
General progress of the district was emphasized in the great concentrator built at Kimberley,
the hydro-electric power plant at Elko, the improved accommodations at Fairmont and Radium
Hot Springs, and the great increase in motor traffic generally.
A loggers' strike was on for most of the winter. Labour during the road-building season
remained normal and no change was made in the rate of wages.
It is interesting to note that the 12.7 miles of the Columbia River Road built by contract
at what was considered exceptionally low unit prices cost on an average $4,075 per mile, and
that 17.3 miles of similar type of road and through similar country was constructed by our own
forces at an average cost of $4,200 per mile. This difference is so slight that the comparison
can well be taken as proof that, no matter whether road-work is done by day-labour or by
contract, good value is being received.
All in the employ of the Department working with me here have rendered, good and faithful
service, and the excellent support from you and your staff is a great incentive to us.
Respectfully submitted.

P. Philip, Esq.,
Public Works Engineer, Victoria, B.C.
Sir,—I have the honour to submit my report for the fiscal year 1923-24, covering the Atlin,
Prince Rupert, and Omineca Electoral Districts.
Roads.—The district vote for each electoral district was largely used on maintenance and
repairs of existing roads. Considerable gravelling was done on main roads, particularly in the
Omineca District, and charged to this vote.
New construction of roads was undertaken in each electoral district and charged against
" Mines Development " and " Highway Loan."
In Atlin District the following roads were constructed, some involving heavy expenditure
on account of the amount of rock encountered: B.C. Silver Mines Road; Indian Mines Wagon-
road; Stewart-Hyder Road; Salmon River Road (extension); Telegraph Creek-Dease Lake
Wagon-road. Alice Arm Suspension Bridge from wing dam, 230-foot span.

In the Prince Rupert Electoral District maintenance and repairs were carried out. Conditions were good as weather was favourable, and with two trucks and tractor in Terrace
District considerable gravelling was done in that area. The following new construction was
done and charged against " Highway Loan": Port Clements-Tlell Road (Queen Charlotte
Islands); Terrace-Lakelse Lake Road; Terrace-Kitsumgallum Lake Road; and a new road
had to be constructed from Terrace Townsite to the site of the new Terrace Bridge; this work
was partly in solid rock and consequently costly.
In Omineca District maintenance and repairs were carried out and charged against district
vote, also considerable gravelling was done in the Smithers and Burns Lake areas out of this
vote.
New construction was carried out under the " Mines Development Act" ; the chief work
being the Hudson Bay Mountain Road from Smithers to the Duthie Mines, a distance of 12 miles,
medium heavy construction. Work was undertaken under Highway Loan on the following
main roads: Colleymount Road; Fort George-Hazelton, Section F; Fort George-Hazelton,
Section K; Keefe's Landing to Ootsa Lake; McDonald's Landing Road; South Hazelton to
Carnaby ;  LTncha Lake Road ;  West Francois Lake Road.
Seven miles were constructed on the road between Endako and Burns Lake, leaving 28 miles
still to be constructed on the link between Prince George and Hazelton.
Surveys were made for the Kaien Island Highway and some preliminary work done on the
Queen Charlotte City-Skidegate Road.
Trails.—Trails were maintained in all districts and several new trails built in the Atlin
District.
Bridges.—No serious damage was done to bridges as high water was normal. Extensive
maintenance and repairs were carried out and several large bridges built, including the Bear
River Bridge, consisting of two 150-foot Howe-truss spans, with 1,000-foot rock-fill approach;
the Alice Arm Suspension Bridge of 230-foot span, with trestle approaches, across the Kitsault
River at Alice Arm, Atlin District. ,
The concrete substructure of the Terrace Bridge, with timber trestle approaches, was also
built across the Skeena River at. Terrace. (See photograph.) This bridge consists of one
250-foot span, one 160-foot span, two 140-foot spans, and two 90-foot spans. The work on the
substructure was started in September, 1923, and completed in February, 1924. River and
weather conditions were ideal for this work. The work of building the superstructure is at
present in hand.
The only other new bridge of any size was that constructed across the Kispiox River,
8 miles north of Hazelton.    This bridge consists of two 100-foot Howe-truss spans.
Ferries.—Ferries were all maintained during the year and a new 10-ton pontoon ferry was
installed at Hazelton, across the Skeena River. A 5-ton pontoon ferry was also constructed at
Kitwanga and Copper City respectively.
Assistance was given to the settlers at Walcott to install a ferry across the Bulkley River.
The steel power-ferry at Francois Lake operated all winter as the lake did not freeze over.
Some damage was done to the north landing by ice-crush.
Wharves.—Maintenance-work was carried out on the Prince Rupert Wharf and Bella Coola
Wharf.    The latter is in very poor condition.
Organization,—The whole organization worked in a satisfactory manner, but the area is
large to give it proper engineering supervision.
Labour.—Labour is much more satisfactory and the tendency seems to be to give a fair day's
work. Wages are the same as last year and no difficulty was found in getting men, except in
areas where there is mining. The wages paid to miners being higher, we are left to take the
men who cannot get work in the mines.
Material,—Material is easy to get and the prices appear to be going down slightly.
General.—On the whole, the work has been carried out in an economical and efficient manner.
Other departments of the Provincial Government have co-operated and assisted when asked.
I wish to thank you and your staff in Victoria for the prompt and helpful assistance
I received at all times.
All of which is respectfully submitted.

REPORT OF ENGINEER, DISTRICT No. 8.
District Engineer's Office,
Prince George, B.C., July 15th, 1924.
P. Philip, Esq.,
Public Works Engineer, Victoria, B.C.
Sik,—I have the honour to submit my annual report for the fiscal year ended March 31st,
1923-24.
The marked progress made which has been most noticeable in all sections of the district
was due to the co-operation and interest taken hy those actually concerned in the various
classes of construction. A better understanding of the departmental standards is being grasped
in the field. For example, it is not long since it was generally supposed that corduroy was used
almost exclusively in low w7et places and nothing else would do. Now corduroy is becoming
obsolete except for use under extreme conditions, and drainage is taking its place. Hundreds
of feet of this undesirable method of road-making have been taken up and replaced with a
well-drained clay or other surface. Improperly designed pole culverts have disappeared and the
standard type of construction has taken their place. A more scientific use of the grader is being
adopted, whereby the ideal crown and proper mode of ditching are becoming better understood
by grader operators.
Excellent weather conditions were a most favourable asset and materially assisted grading
operations throughout the season.
Main Roads.—The policy of improving the main roads was again vigorously carried out,
resulting in the grading to standard width (with the exception of a few miles) of the whole of
the Fort George-Vanderhoof section of the Fort George-Hazelton Road. Another season's work
on this 72-mile section of main trunk road will see it completed.
The improvement of the Fort George-Giscome Road was pushed ahead, but the heavy work
encountered near Willow River made it impossible to get through the whole distance, although
use of the bridge recently constructed crossing the Willow River was utilized during the winter
months, connection being made by sleigh-road.
The main Cariboo Road was regraded in places and fills made on a number of low-lying wet
stretches.    This road is now in excellent shape for 50 miles south of Prince George.
In the Vanderhoof District the Vanderhoof-Stuart Lake Road was much improved, the
efficiency of work done being very much in evidence this spring, when the road dried up almost
immediately after the snow had disappeared.
The McBride-Tete Jaune Road was extended toward Croydon, where a lot of beneficial
work was carried out.
Other main roads were well maintained by the use of road-drags, a system, of maintenance
which is being generally adopted with great success throughout the district.
Lateral Roads.—This was the first season in which a general attempt has been made to grade
up lateral and local roads. On the more-travelled lateral roads the local settlers are taking out
the stumps and ploughing two or three furrows. With the use of our tractor and grader these
roads are crowned up and ditched at small cost.
Whereas in the past mud-holes had usually to be fixed up each year, there wras little or
no expense this spring. A day or so with the road-drag did all that was necessary. Other side-
roads were widened out and graded where required and as far as funds would permit.
In order to keep our teams busy gravel was hauled during the winter months, making it
possible to surface some short stretches of the more heavily travelled roads in the vicinity of
Prince George and Vanderhoof.
Peace River District,—A number of new road allowances, especially in the vicinity of Fort
St. John, w7ere opened up during the season. The main road through the Pouce Coupe Valley
was improved and the Grande Prairie main road received further attention by straightening and
regrading.
Bridge-work.—High water caused little or no damage to existing structures from spring
freshets. A large number of small bridges were replaced by culvert and fill in many sections
of the district and general repairs were carried out on most of the larger structures.
During the winter a new bridge was erected over the Stuart River at Fort St. James, the
lay-out being made up' of one 130-foot and one 100-foot Howe-truss spans with trestle approaches. Mining Outfit on Telegraph—Dease Road.  15 Geo. 5 Report of Engineer, District No. 9. L 25
the substructure being of concrete on solid rock foundations. The timber used was local fir,
with the exception of chord-leaves, which were shipped in from the Coast. The workmanship
on this structure is excellent, the concrete piers being specially well constructed.
Ferries.—Minor changes were effected to the sunken-cable ferry at Taylor's Flats Ferry on
the Peace River, which now operates very satisfactorily; otherwise work consisted chiefly of
general maintenance.
General,—The whole of the work was carried out by day-labour, which was plentiful in
most sections. It is interesting to report that the local settler is at last beginning to realize
that efficiency is of prime importance and is making an honest attempt to fill the bill. With a
better understanding between all concerned, the work has progressed smoothly, and -I am of the
opinion that another step in the right direction has been accomplished.
All of which is respectfully submitted. ■  ..

REPORT OF ENGINEER, DISTRICT No. 9.
District Engineer's Office,
150-Mile House, July Sth, 1924.
P. Philip, Esq.,
Public Works Engineer, Victoria, B.C.
Sir,—I have the honour to submit my report for the fiscal year 1923-24. Synopsis of work
done during season :—
Cariboo District.—Roads repaired and maintained, 583 miles; roads reconstructed, 15 miles;
new roads constructed, 72 miles; trails repaired and maintained, 50 miles; new trails constructed, 22 miles; surveys for new roads, trails, and diversions, 53 miles. New bridges constructed, 18, total length 1,509 feet; bridges reconstructed, 21, total length 635 feet; bridges
repaired, 35.    Ferries maintained and operated, 6.
Lillooet District.—Roads repaired and maintained, 654 miles; roads reconstructed, 8 miles;
new roads constructed, 48 miles; trail repaired and maintained, 15 miles; new trail constructed,
32 miles; surveys for new roads, trails, and diversions, 123 miles. New bridges constructed, 8,
total length 321 feet; bridges reconstructed, 8, total length 355 feet; bridges repaired, 28.
Ferries maintained and operated, 4.
The supervision costs, including salaries and expenses of District Engineer, assistants, and
all clerical work, office expenditures, operation and maintenance of autos, and other transportation charges, amounted to 5.15 per cent, of the total expenditure.
The principal new road-construction comprised the following: Chilcotin Main diversion at
Hanceville, Bradley Creek, Lone Butte-Bridge Lake, Willowford-Buffalo, Exeter-Canim (diversion near 100-Mile House), Baity's, Bouchie Lake, Springhouse-Williams Lake, Government
Creek, Punchau, Peavine Ridge, Carpenter's Mountain, Dragon Lake-Sisters Creek, and Cariboo
Main between Quesnel and Fort George.
The demand for new roads increases, and the construction of these prevents the very
necessary work of gravelling the old established roads, which, owing to auto-stage traffic, become
deeply rutted during wet weather. I suggest a halt be called to the building of additional
mileage and all effort be concentrated on gravelling and thoroughly draining the main roads.
Bridges.—The most important work w7as the completion of Quesnel Dam Bridge, the total
cost of which was as follows : Demolishing section of dam, $2,498.28; building bridge, $19,598.58;
constructing road approaches, $6,590.25; total, $28,6S7.11. Truss bridges were also built at
Jim Creek and Burkholder's.
General conditions were favourable and all work was economically carried out.
I take this opportunity of expressing my thanks to all those working with me in the district,
and to the Department for its helpful support.
Respectfully submitted.

District Engineer. L 26 Public Works Report  (1923-24).
REPORT OF THE SUPERVISING ARCHITECT.
Department of Public Works,
Victoria, B.C., July 21st, 1924.
P. Philip, Esq.,
Public Works Engineer, Victoria, B.C.
Sir,—I beg to submit the annual report of the Architectural Branch for the fiscal year
ended March 31st, 1924.
Parliament Buildings.—The rewiring to these buildings has been almost completed with the
completion of the Printing Annex; this Annex has also been remodelled to further increase the
efficiency of its operation. Beyond these matters and the general upkeep and repairs to the
buildings no changes of any moment have been made.
The grounds have been efficiently maintained under the direction of the Head Gardener.
The various tradesmen around these buildings have given me their hearty co-operation in
the maintenance of the various Government buildings around Victoria, besides other Government
buildings throughout the Province.
It is with regret that we lost the valuable services of John Bell by a regrettable accident at
the New Westminster Court-house.
Government Souse.—During this year a garage and residence for the chauffeur at this
building was erected and the general upkeep of the buildings and grounds were efficiently
maintained.
Normal. Schools.—The two Normal Schools at Victoria and Vancouver respectively were
maintained and decorated during this year.
Mental Hospital, Essondale.—Owing to a fire various renovations and additions w7ere made
to the Farm Annex. A new residence for the Medical Superintendent was commenced, also
another home for one of the staff was commenced, these works being carried out mainly by
patient-labour with the assistance of the staff at the institution under our direction, besides
the general upkeep and maintenance.    A new horse-barn w7as also erected during the year.
Mental Hospital, New Westminster.—Sundry improvements to the Occupational Therapy
Buildings and covered ways were made and the roofs were reslated and otherwise improved
by the late John Bell of the Parliament Buildings' staff.
Mental Hospital, Saanich.—A new greenhouse w7as built and other improvements were made
by patient-labour and general upkeep maintained.
Court-houses.—Considerable improvements were made at the Court-houses at Cranbrook,
Vancouver, and New Westminster, particularly for the Department of Finance, besides the
general upkeep and maintenance of the other agencies throughout the Province.
A new vault and alterations to the Court-house at Victoria were made by the transferring
of the Police Department to the old drill-hall on the Parliament Buildings grounds, which was
remodelled to house this Department, which is now in possession of very excellent quarters where
they can more efficiently carry on their work.
Boys' Industrial School.—These buildings were decorated internally, a cottage erected for
one of the officials, new curbs and sidewalks constructed around portions of the grounds, and a
considerable amount of tree-planting and fixing up the grounds commenced.
A start was made on the erection of an auditorium and school-room, which is being erected
by the boys and staff at this institution.
Girls' Industrial School,—A root-house and general upkeep of the buildings were carried out
during the year.
Deaf, Dumb, and Blind School—Owing to the old boilers in this institution being condemned,
changes were made and a new return-tubular boiler installed, besides the general upkeep and
repairs.
Tranquille Sanatorium.—A considerable building programme was commenced at this institution, including two concrete silos, piggery, feed-room, implement-shed, five cure cottages, and
sundry other improvements made to other existing buildings.
Improvements around the ground were made and fire hazards taken care of, besides the
upkeep and maintenance of the buildings.
Old Men's Home.—Improvements to this building were made and the fire hazards adequately
taken care of, in addition to the general upkeep and maintenance of the buildings.   ..-.,■■  15 Geo. 5 Report of Supervising Architect. L 27
Oakalla Prison Farm.—'Alterations to the Female Wing were commenced, to take care of
the laundry and bath-room, and new laundry apparatus installed, which will give a much-needed
improvement in the kitchen arrangements.
A new concrete silo was completed and a great improvement around the grounds made.
New Buildings.
Acute Building, Essondale.—The building is practically completed and the institution is now
possessed of two blocks that are second to none in the Dominion. The furnishings for this
building are on hand, and I expect it to be in operation in the near future.
New Poicer-house, Essondale.—A new power-house designed to serve the whole of the
complete institution was designed and the contract awarded during this year. The mechanical
part w7as designed by the Chief Inspector of Machinery and Boilers.
Court-house, Anyox.—A small Court-house and Government offices were erected at Anyox.
University of B.C.—The Branch designed the temporary buildings to the University of British
Columbia and contracts were awarded, comprising the Administration, Arts, Agriculture, Applied
Science, and Auditorium and Engineering Buildings. This necessitated considerable thought and
application to accommodate the requirements of the University Faculty with the money available,
and at the same time obtain a design that w7ould harmonize with the permanent buildings now
being erected.
The permanent structures of the University were designed by Sharp & Thompson, architects,
of Vancouver, and comprise the completion of the Science Building, new library, and powerhouse.
When the present scheme is completed the Province will be in possession of an excellent
nucleus for the proposed scheme in the permanent structures, whilst the temporary buildings
will 4iarmonize and will adequately serve the requirements of the University for a considerable
period of time.
Prince George Court-house.—The purchase of the Alexandra Hotel was made during the year
and alterations made to adapt it to the purposes of Government Offices and Court-house. The
undertaking, which has been most successfully completed, will adequately take care of the
requirements of this district for years to come.
The total cost of the building, alterations, and land is such that an excellent investment has
been made, for no new building could have been erected, even a frame building, that would have
given anything like the accommodation now obtained in this building.
Home for Incurables, Marpole,—The Government took over the Marpole Annex from the
Vancouver General Hospital and purchased the building at a very reasonable sum. Improvements have been made to the grounds and same fenced, with shelters erected in the grounds for
the patients.    Plans are under preparation for other improvements inside the building.
Empire Exhibition.—A cottage for the Forestry Branch was designed and erected at the
Wembley Exhibition in London to advertise the British Columbia lumber products. I understand
it has been most favourably commented upon and has resulted in the larger use of British
Columbia products in Great Britain's notahle buildings.
Williams Lake.—A cottage for the District Forester was erected at Williams Lake, also
a new cottage hospital in the same city.
Government Offices, Oliver.—New offices were erected at Oliver for the Water Branch of
the Lands Department.
Lock-ups.—New lock-ups and married constables' quarters were erected at Kimberley Abbotsford, and Campbell River respectively, whilst the maintenance and repairs to existing lock-ups
and gaols were made.
Schools.—The Branch has had considerable work in approving plans submitted hy outsidi.
architects to which the Department of Education are giving grants. Also a larger number of
our stock plans and specifications were forwarded to various School Boards who were erecting
schools themselves from these plans.
Advice and assistance were rendered to several School Boards where difficulties had arisen
in connection with construction of their schools.
The following schools were erected, or plans and specifications prepared, during the year:
Five-room brick, Grand Forks; four-room addition, Kamloops ; one-room school, Balfour; one-
room school, Appledale;   one-room school, Dove Creek;   one-room school, Coquitlam;   one-room L 28 Public Works Report (1923-24).
addition,  Yahk;   one-room  addition, French  Creek;   two-room school, Usk;   two-room  school,
Ganges ; three-room school, Burns Lake.
Hospitals.—The Branch renewed several plans for hospitals submitted by outside architects,
to which grants were given by the Department of the Provincial Secretary, and assistance
rendered to various Hospital Boards.
Photos.—Attached hereto are photos of some of the more prominent buildings erected
during this period.
In conclusion, I wish to thank you, sir, and the Deputy Minister for your kindly consideration
and co-operation in our problems, and also to thank the members of this Branch for their loyal
support and assistance in the busiest year in the existence of this Branch.
To Mr. Peck and Mr. Muirhead I wish to add my thanks for their assistance in taking care
of the mechanical and electrical work in connection with our more prominent structures.
All of which is respectfully submitted.

One of the men working at the camp who was standing at the top of a hill about 300 yards
from the donkey stated that on hearing the explosion he looked towards the donkey and saw a
cloud of steam and pieces of plate flying upward through the air over the lake, and he is of
the opinion that the pieces fell into the lake.
There were two other men near the donkey—the fireman, E. Bartholomew, and the wood-
hucker, Fred Peterson. I found that Peterson had gone to Vancouver and the fireman could not
be located.
I left word with Mr. Olafson that if any pieces of plate could be found to have them
forwarded to Vancouver. I have since received word from him that he has had diligent search
made, but without success.
On my return to the office I set about finding Peterson and located him on Wednesday, the
19th, at the Balmoral Hotel, and took his evidence in the afternoon at the Vancouver office.
He says the donkey was closed down either one or two days before the accident, so that the
engineer could repair a leak in the shell of the boiler at or near the longitudinal seam, at a
point about half-way up the boiler. This would indicate that the plate was prohably cracked,
the crack commencing on the inside and gradually working through the plate, and it is very
unfortunate that we have so far not been able to find the plate to prove just what did occur.
If there was a crack through the plate it certainly should not have been caulked up and pressure
again put on the boiler.
He says that on the 10th or 11th the engineer told the foreman that they would close down
the boiler as there was a leak about in the centre of the boiler, a little above or below and
near the longitudinal seam, and that he would fix the leak. On the 12th they came to work about
1 o'clock, hauled down one log, and started to haul the second one. It had been hauled about 100 to
150 feet when the signal was given to stop. Immediately after this the boiler blew up. He says
that when Mr. Olafson, the owner, came to the donkey and saw the leak he told them to knock
off. Olafson said to the engineer: "What is the trouble?" The engineer said: "There is a
leak; but that's all right, I'll fix that." It would therefore appear that the leak was fixed by
Mr. Hazell, and as there was only a little steam leaking he evidently did not think the defect
a serious one, and no doubt this was the reason he did not report to the Department. It is
unfortunate that we have not been able to find the parts of the boiler-shell, as they would throw
definite light on the subject.
This is the third explosion that has taken place in twenty-five years and the first explosion
resulting fatally. In both of the former cases the explosions were due to what is known as a
hidden lap-seam fracture; that is, the fracture takes place under the inner lap of the shell,
the crack being in the outer part of the shell and continuing gradually until there is not enough
metal left to resist the internal pressure. I have every reason to believe that this was the
cause of the explosion in the present case.
I may say that the safety-valve was found undamaged and was tested to find whether it
was in satisfactory working-order and also whether it was overloaded. The test showed that
everything connected with the safety-valve was satisfactory.
The boiler was built by the Vancouver Engineering Works, Limited, December, 1910. It was
48 inches inside diameter by 8 feet high, and the thickness of plate % inch; tensile strength,
60,000 lb. It was inspected by John O'Neill on February 27th, 1923, and with the exception
of minor defects in the fittings the boiler appeared to be in good condition.
The second fatal accident occurred at Merritt. After steam had been shut off from the
mains the operating lever of the saw-carriage had been left in such a position that steam could
enter the carriage-feed cylinder. The deceased was cleaning around the band-saw and when
the steam was turned on to the mains in the morning the carriage pushed him against the saw.
I wish to call attention to a few of the outstanding defects mentioned in the " Summary of
Defects." It will be noted that one boiler was found operating without a safety-valve, twelve
with safety-valves inoperative, six with safety-valves overloaded, and thirty-two with safety-
valves defective in construction. Thirty-one boilers were found with pressure-gauges inoperative
and 340 defective. Forty-two boilers were found with cracks in the plates and eighteen with
broken stays, nine with defective feed-water arrangements, thirty with defective water-gauges,
nine with furnaces out of shape, and eight without fusible plugs.
The total number of new boilers put into operation during the year was 102. This includes
all the new boilers built, together with five from previous year's stock.    The number of new L 140 Public Works Report  (1923-24).
boilers built for British Columbia was ninety-seven, as compared with seventy for the previous
year. Seventy-one of these were built in British Columbia, two built under inspection in Eastern
Canada, eight built in Eastern Canada not under inspection, and sixteen built in the United
States.
The number of second-hand boilers imported was twelve—from Eastern Canada ten and
from the United States two.
Boilers inspected for the first time during the year, 119; fifty were taken out of service,
being condemned as unfit for further use.
Since the Registration Act came into force 3,965 boilers have been registered. Of these,
2,889 were inspected internally and externally, seven internally only, 122 externally only.
Inspection of boilers under steam, 796.
The number of plates tested during the year was 312, as compared with 257 for the previous
year. For the first time in our experience no plates were rejected as unfit for boiler-construction,
as compared with three for the previous year.
In addition to the usual work of this office, we have during the year undertaken extra work
as follows : Supervision of repairs of Ladner-Woodward, Mission-Matsqui, and Agassiz-Bosedale
Ferries; supervised repairs in connection with the operation of steam-plants in Government
Buildings; the designing and installing of a new heating-boiler for the Deaf, Dumb, and Blind
School; and the designing of the central heating plant for the Essondale Mental Hospital. We
have also continued the inspections for the Workmen's Compensation Board.
Appended you will find a summary of the total work done by the District Inspectors, as well
as their separate reports, together with a summary of the work done for the Workmen's
Compensation Board.
In conclusion, I desire to thank you for your active interest in support of this office, aud
also to thank the members of the staff for the efficient manner in which they carried out their
work during the year.
Trusting this report will meet with your approval,
I have, etc.,
John Peck,
Chief Inspector.

REPORT OF CHIEF INSPECTOR OF MACHINERY.
New Westminster, B.C., April 1st, 1924.
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 Twenty-second Annual Report of the operation of the steam-boilers and
machinery inspection service for the year ended March 31st, 1924.
Before proceeding with the detail matters of my report, I consider it fitting that I should
refer to the loss we have sustained by the death of one of the members of our staff, Samuel
Baxter, a man of sterling worth, a citizen who was foremost in advancing the interests of the
city in which he lived, and an official in whom the public, as well as the Inspection Department,
placed implicit confidence.
The personnel of the service to the date of Mr. Baxter's death consisted of the Chief
Inspector, twelve District Inspectors, one clerk, one stenographer and filing and record clerk,
and three stenographers and typists, located as follows: Chief Inspector, three Inspectors, one
clerk, one stenographer and filing and record clerk, and one stenographer and typist at the head
office in New Westminster, 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 Vernon for District E.
The following is a summary of the routine work performed in the office of the Chief
Inspector during the year, exclusive of inspections, engineers' examinations, and the work of
engineer surveying, details of which will be found in the reports of the Inspectors for the
different districts and that of the Chief Engineer Examiner:—

I regret to report that there has been one boiler-explosion during the year, a report of which
was forwarded to the Department on December 27th, 1923.
This explosion occurred on December 12th from a donkey-boiler located at Cortes Island,
which resulted in the death of the engineer, Harry Hazell, who was struck on the forehead and
also slightly scalded.
I learned of the explosion through the Vancouver office about 2 p.m. on Friday, December
14th, Mr. Hazell, Sr., having called there with telegrams from the owner of the logging camp,
Mr. Olafson. I took the first boat leaving A'ancouver ou Saturday at 11.45 for Powell River
and got a launch in the morning and proceeded to Manson's Landing, Cortes Island. The logging
camp was located about 3 miles from the landing and the donkey was operating on the shore of
a small lake.
I found the boiler had been dislodged from the cast-iron bed-plate and the fire-box; some
of the tubes and the upper head were blown into the lake and partly submerged. The shell of
the boiler could not be located. 15 Geo. 5 Chief Inspector of Machinery. L 143

Chief Inspector of Machinery, New Westminster, B.C.
Sir,—I have the honour to hand you herewith my report for the period April 1st, 1923, to
January 31st, 1924.
During this period I was occupied with the district work of the head office; engineers'
examinations; examining and calculating designs for boilers, engines, pressure-vessels, etc.;
supervising repairs to ferries and bridges; examining spark-arrester designs and testing same
for the Forestry Department.
During August and September I was on leave of absence through sickness.
No explosion occurred in the district during this period, but one boiler, although only ten
years old, was found cracked for a distance of 6 inches at the lap-seam.
Owing to the death of Mr. Baxter I was transferred to District B on February 1st and
assumed my new duties on February 15th.
Trusting this report meets with your approval,
I have, etc.,

John Peck, Esq.,
Chief Inspector of Machinery, New Westminster, B.C.
Sir,—I have the honour to submit my annual report for the year ended March 31st, 1921.
For the first six months of the year I was engaged continually on boiler inspections, but
in August, owing to Mr. Kay being ill and having J;wo months' sick leave, I had to take charge
of the Designs Department while he was away.
In October I was engaged on drawings for a special setting for the new boiler which was
installed at the Deaf, Dumb, and Blind School, and later on in looking after the actual building
of the settings, and also making some of the drawings in connection with the boilers for the
new power-house for Essondale.
In February I was appointed to take Mr. Kay's position in this office on his transfer to
Victoria owing to the lamented death of Mr. Baxter.

Chief Inspector of Machinery, New Westminster, B.C.
Sir,—I have the honour to submit to you my report for the year ended March 31st, 1924.
Generally, plants were found in a satisfactory condition and no serious accidents occurred.
In one plant, however, six boilers, all 72 inches by 18 feet, were badly burned because of oil
getting into them.    One boiler had to have a new front sheet and the pressure was reduced on
the other five.
Because of changes in the office, I made a number of inspections for District A (South).
In connection with inspections for the Workmen's Compensation Board, I found an improvement in the installation of guards for the prevention of accidents.

Sir,—I have the honour to submit herewith my report for the year ended March 31st, 1924.
During the first ten months I was in the head office and District A, and for this period
a separate report has been submitted to you.
I was transferred to this district at the beginning of February and assumed my new duties
on February 15th.
I have been busy most of the time since then with office-work and getting familiar with the
details of the work in the district.
From a perusal of the annual reports for this district and a comparison with former ones,
you will see the work of the district has greatly increased in the last few years.
There are 1,380 boilers registered in this district, of which 140 more were inspected this year
than in any former year; but, despite this, a large number, especially on Vancouver Island,
could not be inspected for lack of time.
The fees collected show an increase of $2,400 over the previous year.
In accomplishing the above work the Inspectors travelled more than 25,000 miles.
The work in the district is now far beyond what three Inspectors can undertake, even in the
most hurried manner. L 150
Public Works Report  (1923-24).
To efficiently carry on the work this office should be relieved of all the territory outside
Vancouver Island, or an additional Inspector should be appointed for the district.
In my tabulated report are included the results of all the examinations held in'the district,
also the total fees collected, letters and telegrams for the year.
Trusting this meets with your approval,

This has been an exceedingly busy year, due to most of the plants in this district being in
operation this year.
I inspected steam plants on Vancouver Island, the Queen Charlotte Islands, and various
parts of the Northern District.
Most of the plants were in generally good condition and there is more attention being paid
to safeguards to comply with the regulations of the Workmen's Compensation Board.

Inspector's Report, District B.
Victoria, B.C., April 1st, 1924.
John Peck, Esq.,
Chief Inspector of Machinery, Neiv Westminster, B.C.
Sir,—I have the honour to submit to you my annual report for the year ended March
31st, 1924.
This has been a very busy year indeed, in many ways the busiest year we have had in this
district. Due to the increase in the work it is becoming increasingly difficult to properly supervise this wide and scattered district.
We have had a number of complaints from places in the Prince George neighbourhood.
I found it necessary to take proceedings against one company for operating without an engineer.
The company was fined $100.
It is to be noted that improvement is slowly taking place in engineering practice in this
Province, and it would seem that the time has arrived when it has become necessary for the
sawmills in particular to completely remodel their plants so that they may compete with the
manufacturers in the United States.    Much good work remains to be done along this line.
Besides the boiler-inspection work, I have made many reports for the Workmen's Compensation Board, and here also I note some improvement.
Enclosed please find a detailed report of my year's work.
In conclusion, I wish to thank the head office for its constant and steady support.
Trusting this report meets with your approval,
I have, etc.,
John Clark,
Inspector of Steam-boilers, District B.
Remarks.
I conducted engineers' examinations during the past year in Prince Rupert, Anyox, Prince
George, and at many places between Prince Rupert and the borders of Alberta. I also conducted
examinations in Cumberland, Nanaimo, Port Alberni, and assisted with such in Victoria. 15 Geo. 5 Chief Inspector of Machinery. L 153

Sir,—I have the honour to submit my report for the year ended March 31st, 1924.
During the year there was one rather serious accident when the blow-off pipe on boiler
No. 3045S broke and the engineer was badly scalded about the arms and face.   The protecting
brickwork had fallen away from the pipe and had not been replaced. L 156 Public Works Report  (1923-24).
Four locomotive boilers of the wet-bottom type were damaged by frost, the plate being forced
off the stays along the centre line.    The damage is usually caused by the scale and mud left in
the bottom and the damaged area is limited to three or four stays.
Appended you will find tabulated report.
I have, etc.,

Senior Inspector's Report, District D.
Vancouver, B.C., April 1st, 1924.
John Peek, Esq.,
Chief Inspector of Machinery, New Westminster, B.C.
Sir,—I have the honour to submit herewith my annual report for the year ended March
31st, 1924.    (See tabulated report.)
During the year past we had our first fatal boiler-explosion. A logging-donkey, boiler No.
41164-B.C, operated by Olafson Brothers on Cortes Island, blew up on December 12th, injuring
the engineer so badly that he died within a few hours.
The force of the explosion threw the ruptured shell-sheet into a near-by lake, W'here it could
not be located;  therefore we can only surmise the reason for the accident.
From the evidence given at the inquiry into the accident by the wood-bucker who was
working near the donkey, it appears that the previous day the engineer discovered a leak
at or near the vertical seam of the shell (which had a triple-riveted lap-joint) and sent the crew
home in order that he might get steam off the boiler and caulk the leaky plate;   our supposition L 15S Public Works Report  (1923-24).
being that the shell had cracked entirely through the plate at a point opposite the edge of inside
plate, and the engineer, not realizing that the boiler was in a dangerous condition, proceeded
to caulk the leak. At any rate, the following day, after raising steam, he received a signal to
go ahead, but had only hauled the turn of logs a few yards when the upper part of the shell
was ripped off and disappeared into the lake, causing fatal injuries to himself.
I might mention that the boiler was inspected and tested to one and one-half times the
w7orking^pressure on February 27th, 1923.
Two accidents to engineers, resulting in broken arms, were reported, in both cases caused
by negligence in putting belts on pulleys.
In May the engineer at Gilford Island Mills reported an accident to his engine, the crankshaft breaking close to pin;  the engine was stopped before any further damage was done.
During the year I visited and reported on twenty-one plants for the Workmen's Compensation Board, and paid numerous visits to the new launch while under construction at Hoffar
Motor Boat Company's yards, to check up specifications.
In addition to fees collected in tabulated report, there was a total of $1,220.10 earned by
this office, testing plates, supervising construction, and testing completed boilers in the shops
of Vancouver, that was collected by New Westminster office and does not appear in our report.
Trusting that my work for the year meets with your approval,
I have, etc.,
Geo. O. Madigan,
Inspector of Steam-boilers, District D.

John, Peck, Esq.,
Chief Inspector of Machinery, New Westminster, B.C.
Sir,—I have the honour to submit report for the year 1923-24.
Nothing worth special mention has come under my notice during the past year, except a
rather unusual governor accident which resulted in the wreck of a fly-wheel. This was a small
twin engine used for driving a conveyor. It had a Pickering governor with the jockey pulley
and lever on the belt. It so happened that the main drive-belt of engine broke and, striking
the governor-belt, threw it on to the projecting flange of the adjacent main bearing. This, of
course, stopped the governor motion, but did not allow the governor-belt enough slack to allow
the jockey pulley to drop and close the steam-valve. The fly-wheel, about 54 inches diameter,
w7as totally w'reeked and pieces flew through the roof and in all directions. Fortunately no
person was injured. The governor-pullej7 on main shaft just happened to be about 3 inches
more diameter than the shaft; i.e., 114-inch step-up; and this was about the thickness of
projecting flange of main bearing brasses. This accident indicated the limitations of an engine-
governor, and it is rather strange that safety devices in this regard go no further than to make
provision for the governor-belt breaking or coming off the pulley on the governor.
In closing, I have to acknowledge your helpful co-operation during the past year.
I have, etc.,

Inspector of Steam-boilers, District D.

John Peek, Esq.,
Chief Inspector of Machinery, New Westminster, B.C.
Sir,—I am forwarding my report for year ended March 31st, 1924.
The nature and number of defects observed this year emphasize the need of frequent
examination, and I regret to say that in one instance internal grooving resulted in an explosion
whereby the engineer lost his life.
The boiler was of the lap-seam type, and it seems to me that eventually a strong stand will
have to be taken against its further manufacture, if we are to give the steam-users of the
Province the fullest protection we can.
Much of my time has been spent in outfitting the new cruiser " Insboy" for service.
I anticipate that important economies will be effected by its use on the Coast.
Trusting that my work during the past year has given you satisfaction,

Inspector's Report, District E.
Vernon, B.C., April 1st, 1924.
John Peck, Esq.,
Chief Inspector of Machinery, New Westminster, B.C.
Sir,—I have the honour to submit my report for the year 1923.
There have been no fatal accidents due to engines or boilers in this district, but there was
one at Merritt, due to a man being pushed against the baud-saw by a carriage attached to a
steam-feed.
This accident would not have happened if the operating lever had been left in position so
that ou turning on the steam the carriage would be forced against the stop.
The accident occurred when the steam was turned on to the mill in the morning. Whilst
the deceased was cleaning around the band-saw, steam leaked past the piston-valve, moved the
carriage forward, and pushed him against the saw.
During the coming year I expect that the work of this district will be augmented by a
number of mining companies, some of them new, and others reopened after several years of
idleness.
During the year, in addition to the annual inspection of boilers, I held examinations in
Vernon, Kamloops, Revelstoke, Golden, Merritt, and Quesnel, and made numerous inspections
for the Workmen's Compensation Board.
Trusting that this report may meet with your approval,
I have, etc.,
Jas. Davidson,
Inspector of Steam-boilers, District E.

REPORT OF INSPECTOR OF ELECTRICAL
ENERGY.
June 20th, 1924.
J. E. Griffith, Esq.,
Deputy Minister of Public Works,
Parliament Buildings, Victoria, B.C.
Sir,—I have the honour to submit the following report on the work of this office for the year
ended March 31st, 1924 :—
The report covers electrical inspection-work under the " Electrical Energy' Inspection Act,"
and also electrical engineering-work in connection with Government buildings.
Regulations. .
The regulations applying to power-houses and sub-stations were amended during the year
and brought into final form. Requests had been received from several of the electrical manufacturers for slight changes to the first draft of these regulations in order to meet certain features
of the latest design of switch-gear, and it was found that these changes could be made without
reducing the standard of safety. The regulations have now been passed by Order in Council and
have also been printed and distributed to power companies and others who might be affected
by them. A number of requests for copies have been received from engineers and others
responsible for designing and preparing specifications for this class of work.
It is expected that these regulations will result in a general improvement in the design and
equipping of power.plants and conduce to the increased safety of operators. Special attention
has been paid to specifying clearances around switchboards and to " live" parts of different
voltages. The correct use of disconnecting-switches for all new work has been specified in
detail, and it is considered that this will reduce the hazard attending the carrying-out of repairs
on electrical equipment where the plant cannot be entirely closed down.
The general wiring rules have .undergone slight changes during the year, following on the
issue of the 1923 edition of the National Electrical Code. AVe have not found it advisable to
adopt all the changes in this edition, as some of these are of a more or less drastic nature.
Our regulations quoted the " latest edition " of the Code, and consequently we found it necessary
to change this to read " the 1920 edition," which was the previous one issued, and have added
such of the new rules in the 1923 edition as we have been prepared to adopt. This was found
to be the only course until such time as we are prepared to adopt the 1923 Code in its entirety.
Our requirements regarding conduit-wiring and loading of circuits are now well known throughout the Province, and a higher standard of work as regards these and other features of electric
wiring is now being provided.
Transmission and Distrirution.
The British Columbia Electric Railway Company has completed the construction of a
34,000-volt line from Vancouver to Britannia Mines and regular supply is now being given to
a sub-station erected at the mines by the Britannia Mining, Smelting, and Power Company.
Plans and specifications for all the work passed through this office and the course of the construction was followed. The transmission-line and sub-station are in conformity with the
latest practice applying to such work.
The plans by the British Columbia Electric Railway Company for an extension to its high-
voltage transmission-line system from Lake Buntzen are under consideration by the company's
engineers and by this office. Attention is also being given to the proposals of the company in
Victoria regarding the additional high-voltage transmission-line to be built from the Jordan
River plant.
The East Kootenay Power Company has considerable extension of its transmission-line
system under contemplation, and plans are at present before us for an additional 60,000-volt line.
12 L 180 Public Works Report  (1923-24).
As regards low-voltage distribution, a limited amount of extension-work has been done in the
smaller towns throughout the Province, and a fairly satisfactory amount of reconditioning of
the older lines has been carried out. The major portion of the new construction has been done
in and around Vancouver, and includes a complete lighting-distribution system recently provided
by the British Columbia Electric Railway Company in the Municipality of West A'ancouver.
Plans and specifications for this work were duly submitted to the office and the lines were
inspected as construction proceeded. Continued improvement in the overhead lines in A'ancouver
is being made by the removal of the older poles and also by removing of circuits from the more
congested pole-lines. Attention is now being given by the office to the much-needed improvement
in the overhead-line system in A'ictoria, and an outline of work for increasing the public safety
by the reconditioning of the older pole-lines is now under preparation.
Underground Construction.
Progress is now being made towards the removal of overhead wires in the more congested
down-town sections of the City of A'ancouver, and preliminary plans are now before us for a
scheme of underground conduits by the British Columbia Electric Railway Company. This will
eventually result in increased public safety and also in a reduction of accidents to linemen.
This type of electrical accident still occasionally occurs, but with the disappearance of the more
heavily loaded poles in congested districts and adherence to our Rules on Overhead Line Construction, we are hopeful of effecting a reduction in the number of overhead-line accidents.
Public Works.
In conjunction with the Supervising Architect and the Public Works Engineer, electrical
work in connection with public buildings has been dealt with from time to time, and specifications and electrical wiring plans have been prepared and the course of the work followed during
construction. Amongst public works receiving attention in this way may be mentioned the
following : The new Acute Building at Essondale, Deaf and Dumb Home, Tranquille Sanatorium,
Old People's Home at Kamloops, Boys' Industrial School, Girls' Industrial School, Oakalla
Prison Farm, etc. A very considerable amount of time has also been given to the electrical
work in connection with the new University buildings at Point Grey. Wiring plans and specifications for electric light and power in a number of the buildings have been prepared and further
work is in hand regarding light and power supply, telephone service, fire-alarm system, road-
lighting, and the necessary underground-conduit system for accommodating these services.
Pole-line Permits.
The usual practice of overseeing all pole-line construction on Provincial highways has been
continued,  and during the year fifty-five permits  for this work  have been  issued to power,
telephone, and telegraph companies,
i Telephone-lines.
A feature of the construction-work carried out during the year has been the extensions of
telephone-lines, particularly on A'ancouver Island, where the British Columbia Telephone Company has made considerable extensions to its system. In some cases permission has been sought
for construction of lines on locations already occupied by the lines of the Dominion Government
Telegraph Service. In such instances permission for the desired construction has been withheld
until such time as the Department has been satisfied that arrangements agreeable to the officials
of the Dominion Department have been made by the Telephone Company for accommodating its
wires on the new pole-lines.
Accidents.
The following list shows the accidents which occurred during the year from electrical
causes and also from mechanical causes but in connection with electrical occupations. There
were eight fatal accidents. Many of the others resulted in minor injuries, particularly to hands
and arms through burns received from electric flashes and short circuits at switch-gear,
fuses, etc. 15 Geo. 5

Power Plants.
Considerable work has been done during the year at the Stave Falls plant of the AA'estern
Power Company of Canada. The dam has been increased in height and length and plans have
been prepared for the installation of an additional unit of 25,000 horse-power. Preparations
are also under way for the commencement of the Alouette Lake development. Plans have
already passed through our hands for the construction of the necessary 34,000-volt transmission-
line to connect this development with the existing Stave Falls power-house.
The Elk Biver plant of the East Kootenay Power Company has now been completed. It will
operate in conjunction with the Company's Bull Biver power-house, and will supply electrical
energy to the new mining plant installed by the Consolidated Mining & Smelting Company at
Kimberley.
" Electrical Energy Inspection Act."
The " Electrical Energy Inspection Act " of 1922 has now been in operation a sufficient length
of time to indicate its general suitability to conditions. It has had the effect of increasing the
standard of electrical work and bringing about more workable arrangements with the municipalities. In furtherance of the intention of unifying local electrical by-laws, we have prepared
a draft electrical by-law for guidance of municipalities which have no local rules or propose
amending existing by-laws. We have received many requests for the draft, and it has formed
the basis of several new local electrical by-laws. Endeavours are being made to further the
appointment of local inspectors by several of the outlying municipalities and smaller cities.
As an instance of work done in this connection in the Municipality of AVest A'ancouver and the
City of Cumberland, we have been instrumental in having electrical by-laws enacted and in having
local inspectors appointed. In all cases we keep closely in touch with local inspection departments and are able to report that co-operation in all cases has been satisfactory7.
Factory Installations.
Several important factory electrical installations of a high grade of construction have
recently been conpleted. The new concentrator-mill of the Consolidated Mining and Smelting
Company at Kimberley is completely electrically driven, and a large number of detailed electrical
drawings were submitted for our approval during the course of the designing of this plant by
the company's engineers.    We were closely in touch with the work throughout and inspection of 15 Geo. 5 Inspector of Electrical Energy. L 183
the finished plant has been made. The possibility of electrical accidents in this plant has been
reduced to a minimum, and it is our intention to correspondingly raise, as far as practicable, the
standard of factory electrical installations generally.
The new concentrator at Britannia Mines is now in operation. This also is entirely electrically operated. Close touch with the consulting electrical engineers for this plant was maintained and all plans were duly examined and approved before construction was commenced.
Plans were also approved for the new work carried out at the plant of the Powell Biver
Company, and further electrical drawings for additional extensions have just been submitted
to us.
A'ery considerable advantage has been found to result from the operation of those sections
of our Act dealing with the submission of electrical plans and construction specifications
preparatory to the work being commenced. By ensuring that correct and suitable types of
equipment are installed from the commencement, safe installations' are obtained without the
necessity of subsequent alterations. While the routine of submitting and approving of plans
increases the amount of office-work, it simplifies subsequent inspection and is a practice which
we find is welcomed by designing and construction engineers.
New Types of Equipment.
A new feature of electrical practice recently introduced into the Province is the automatic
street-railway sub-station recently completed by the British Columbia Electric Bailway Company
at Thirty-fourth Avenue and Main Street, South A'ancouver. This sub-station supplies the
street-railway system in that district. The rotating machinery starts up and shuts down
automatically in accordance with the load requirements of the system, and no operator is
required, the only attention being periodic inspection. From a safety standpoint, we consider
that an important advance has been made by the adoption of this type of station. Another
piece of electric apparatus, of which several have been put in use in the Province, is the electric
static condenser for the purpose of improving the power factor on motor loads. This apparatus
is oil-filled and from inspection and experience of its working we have approved its use. As its
name implies, there are no rotating parts and it requires no regular attention.
With regard to the control of motors in factories, satisfactory progress is being made towards
the adoption of remote control or push-button operation, and several important installations of
this type have lately been made. We are devoting some attention at present to the encouragement of the use of dead-front panel-boxes. These have no exposed live switches or fuse terminals
and are now on the market in a variety of types and sizes. Their use is not yet compulsory, but
we are looking forward to the time.in the near future when this type of apparatus will be
general on all new installations.
Canadian Electric Code.
It may be opportune to mention that a movement is now on foot for developing a Canadian
Electrical Code which would unify electrical practice throughout the Dominion, and we have had
many requests from other Provinces for copies of our " Electrical Energy Inspection Act" and
of our regulations. Excepting in Ontario and British Columbia, Government supervision of
electrical work in all its branches is not now exercised throughout Canada, several Provinces
being without any regular system of electrical inspection. In practically all the Provinces the
need for some nieans for regulating electrical work is now felt, and it has been considered by
the Canadian Engineering Standards Association and other bodies that the developing of electrical practice along different lines in the Provinces would be detrimental to the electrical
industry, and would not conduce to the adopting and standardizing of the best and safest types
of electrical equipment and electrical wiring practice. Further, electrical manufacturers have
stated that under present conditions they are obliged to carry different stocks of several types
of equipment and apparatus, due to varying requirements in the Provinces. As instructed by
the Department, the Inspector of Electrical Energy attended a conference on this matter last
summer, and arrangements are under way for preparing such a Dominion Electrical Code by a
special committee of the Canadian Engineering Standards Association, of which the Inspector of
Electrical Energy is a member. The actual adoption of such Electrical Code which may be
prepared will, of course, be discretionary with the various Provincial Governments, but having
in mind the desirability of uniformity, this office would be prepared to recommend as fas as L 184 Public Works Report  (1923-24).
possible the adoption of the proposed Code by the Provincial Government of British Columbia
in so far as same is consistent with the safety requirements as here developed.
Workmen's Compensation Board.
This office continues to function as the Electrical Inspection Office of the Board. Notification
of all electrical accidents is issued to us by the Commissioners and investigations are made and
reports submitted to the Board. Under this division of our work, inspection of electrical work
in factories is made from time to time.
Rule of the Road.
The reconstruction by the British Columbia Electric Railway Company7 necessitated by the
change of the Rule of the Road was completed during the year. This work engaged the attention
of the office for a considerable time during its progress. All the work was gone over and
inspected and all estimates duly checked and entered and detailed reports were submitted from
time to time as the work proceeded.
General.
As hitherto, we have frequently during the year been in touch with the office of the Provincial Fire Marshal during the investigation of fires allegedly of electrical origin, and also-
regarding the reconditioning of old and defective electrical wiring. In some instances cases of
the latter, particularly in outlying parts of the Province, have been called to our attention by
the local Deputy Fire Marshals, and steps have been taken to effect the necessary remedies.
AVhile in many instances we have not found the conditions presented a serious fire hazard, still
in the interests of general safety we have had improvements made in the electrical wiring.
Generally, we have found it advantageous to co-operate with the Fire Marshal's Office and such
is now our established practice.

ANNUAL REPORT OF INSPECTOR OF DYKES.
Office of Inspector of Dykes
(Department of Public  AA'orks),
New Westminster, B.C., October 14th, 1924.
J. E. Griffiths, Esq., C.E.,
Deputy Minister and Chief Engineer,
Department of Railways, Victoria, B.C.
Sir,—The following constitutes the Nineteenth Annual Report of the Inspector of Dykes,
being for the j7ear ended September 30th, 1924, and deals with the responsibilities vested in
him under the provisions of the " Dyking Assessments Adjustment Act, 1905," and amendments.
The responsibilities of the Dykes Department entail engineering services to the Dyking
Districts of Coquitlam, Pitt Meadows No. 1, Pitt Meadows No. 2, Maple Ridge, and Matsqui,
as well as the Drainage District of Matsqui No. 1, and also the new Drainage District of
Maple Ridge No. 2, now in the formation process. In addition, the administration of these
districts is entailed, and the Government's interest therein is made secure by the enforcement
of the regulations relative to the levying and collecting of the necessary annual assessments.
These responsibilities may therefore be treated under two classifications—namely, " Finance "
and " Works "—and in this report the several districts will be considered collectively as far as
possible for the sake of brevity and under these two classifications.
Finance.
This phase of the Department's activities may be segregated under " Revenue" and
" Expenditure," with this qualification, however: that the revenue for the year under review
is associated with the previous year and represents collections upon assessment rolls compiled
at the end of the year 1923.
Revenue.—The revenue with which the Department has to deal is made up of individual
payments toward interest and sinking fund accounts in the several districts applying to the
original capital account of 1905, as well as individual payments on the so-called maintenance
accounts in the several districts. Included in the maintenance accounts of the several districts
are the necessary annuities to retire any extraordinary expenditures made subsequent to 1905
and treated as deferred maintenance accounts.
These deferred maintenance accounts cover expenditures on such services as renewals
to the original wooden flood-boxes, the substitution of electric motive power for the original
steam plants in connection with pumping equipment, and new pumping installations, etc. The
inclusion of their respective annuities along with the maintenance part of the assessments in
any year has the effect of making the maintenance expenditure for that year appear out of
proportion to the work done, and subjects the Department to unwarranted criticism. As an
example, the Alaple Ridge District was assessed last year for $12,371.88 under "Maintenance,"
whereas the actual maintenance expenditure for the year was only $5,320.75. A like comparison
maintains in all the districts.
The  services to which  these deferred maintenance accounts- refer are  as permanent  in.
nature as the original reclamation-works to which the capital account refers, and if segregated
along with that account would help greatly towards lessening imaginary troubles.
Collections.—Collections have become less troublesome this year, perhaps for three reasons:—
(1.) The location of the office in New Westminster, which city is the market town for all
the districts, enables the owners to call personally and have their payments adjusted.
(2.) The drainage improvements which have been under way in some of the districts have
given the owners confidence in their holdings and made collections easier.
(3.) The 1922 amendment to the Act, which replaced the system of tax sale by a system
of automatic forfeiture, acts as a spur to those who are naturally delinquent, and the several
notices which that amendment requires serves to keep the matter of unpaid assessments to
the front, L 18C
Public Works Report  (1923-24)
Total collections for the year September 30th, 1923, to October 1st,- 1924, amounted to
$50,796.48, as compared with $43,871.68 for the same period last year, and are segregated
as  under :—■

The matter of the arrears in the Coquitlam District, and particularly those for which the
corporation of the city is responsible, is one of considerable concern. These arrears are on
areas in streets upon subdivision plans accepted during the major real-estate boom of 1911 and
1912, and the arrears date back to the year 1914. In 1921 the corporation signed a document
which was intended to substitute for a judgment, but during the year under review only $1,056.77
was paid on these arrears, that amount being a part of the proceeds of land sales, in which
sales street allowances were involved. The same procedure may eventually attend to all these
arrears, but their recovery under this method is indefinite. The amount of these outstanding
arrears presently total $9,510.67, exclusive of interest on overdue assessments.
Expenditure.—Expenditure for the year has been confined to ordinary maintenance in all
the districts except Pitt Meadows No. 1 and Maple Ridge. In Pitt Meadows No. 1 Dyking
District a drainage system was constructed during the year, and in Maple Ridge Dyking District
the dyke was reinforced over a section where settlement had taken place. These two engagements entailed expenditures out of the ordinary, and are referred to further in this report
under  " AVorks."
Necessary expenditure in the way of ordinary maintenance was made in all districts.
In Coquitlam, Pitt Meadows No. 2, and Maple Ridge Dyking Districts a start was made toward,
renewing the several flood-box doors, and in Matsqui the pumping equipment was overhauled
and reset as to alignment. Two defective pulleys were also attended to in Matsqui and one
new leather transmission-belt supplied. Such expenditures as these do not occur frequently;
their cost, however, makes the expenditure on ordinary maintenance this year considerably7
higher than otherwise would have obtained.
The following summary shows the structure for the several assessment rolls for the year
1923-1924 and the necessary levy on an acreage basis. The item " ordinary maintenance " shows
the expenditure during the year.

Works.
AVithin the last three years the Department has come to recognize full responsibility in
all works pertaining to dyking matters within the districts administered. That responsibility
has been interpreted in its widest possible sense to include maintenance-work upon the breastwork structures and upon services co-ordinated to those structures, such as flood-boxes, pumping
machinery, etc., together with any necessary works within the areas benefited by the several
structures which would increase that benefit and permit an individual to take full advantage
of that benefit through his own efforts. Previously the Department's policy had been that
they were not interested beyond the services covered by the original Government expenditures
of 1905. Investigations, however, proved that the Government's financial advances were
becoming insecure through the policy, and. also that the progress of the different areas was
being retarded, especially in the Pitt River districts, and in consequence of these two factors
the change in policy7 was effected. Following up the change in policy, an amendment was
made to the " Dyking Assessments Adjustment Act, 1905," authorizing the acquisition of up-to-
date equipment, so that the Department could undertake necessary work in the different dyking
districts and complete the same at the lowest possible cost. One unit of excavating machinery
of the drag-line type was acquired, and this unit has worked two shifts a day throughout the
year, with the exception of a short period required for its annual overhaul. The plant was
engaged through the year upon work out of the ordinary, and that work is therefore treated
separately and in the order of its completion.
Kelly Creek Improvement.—Kelly Creek was a winding stream rising rapidly out of the
Matsqui Prairie into the mountains. Its flow was considerable in dry weather, and in the
wet season it was a source of trouble almost continuously. Its improvement was included in
the Matsqui Drainage Scheme, and the method adopted consisted of straightening, deepening
to 8 feet, and increasing its width to 12 feet. The first wet season brought down litter filling
the 'cafial to one-half its constructed size, and the second season practically filled it. The
stream-grade was 0.4 per cent, through the prairie section, which made the carrying capacity
of the water excessive, and the improvement to which this refers consisted of excavating the
filled-in material and constructing a series of weirs. These weirs broke the grade in steps
and formed a series of ponds, the first of which acted as a settling-basin, and the material in this
will have to be removed from time to time. It is hoped, however, that the neighbouring farmers
will realize the excellence of this material for building purposes and remove large quantities
of it during each dry season.
Pitt Meadows No. 1 Drainage.—This drainage scheme, embracing all the lands in the Pitt
Meadows No. 1 Dyking District and providing an outlet for individual drainage to every 40-acre
lot, was undertaken early in November, 1923. Preliminary survey-work: had previously been
done by the Department and the work was completed in five months. It embraced the construction of some 8.26 miles of laterals, having an average depth of 6 feet, with a 4-foot bottom and
% to 1 side slopes. The job was carried on continuously in the wet season and yet was
characterized by rapid progress. L 190 Public Works Report  (1923-24).
>Pitt Meadows No. 1 Dyke Renewal.—In the fall freshet of 1921, at the time of the Britannia
disaster, this dyke failed in two sections. One of these on an exposed front was renewed soon
after, but the other section, being protected by an outer dyke privately owned, was allowed
to remain until the Department's plant should be in close proximity. Accordingly, when the
drainage-work above referred to was completed, the breach in question wasi closed. AVhen the
breach occurred the base of the old dyke was eroded to a depth of 30 feet, and in consequence
the renewal entailed arcing the gap. The arc was made of sufficient length to make piling
unnecessary and the cost was therefore small. The work, with the exception of a small amount
of hand-trimming after settlement had taken place, was all done with the Department's
machinery.
Maple Ridge Dyke Reinforcement.—Settlement had been noticed over a half-mile section of
the Maple Ridge Dj7ke fronting on the Allouette River in Section 25, Township 9, and the
experience of the previous winter's freshets showed conclusively that a danger threatened on
this front, for on three occasions the flood-heights had come within 6 inches of the crest of the
dyke at several points on the section. The benefits to be derived from the B.C. Electric storage
and diversion work at the headwaters of the river were considered, but as no advantage would
be gained from that work until after the two next succeeding danger periods had passed, it
was decided that the chances of disaster were too great, and accordingly the work of remedying
the defect was undertaken. The base of the dyke was increased 30 per cent, in width and the
structure raised 3.5 feet. The work necessitated the clearing of approximately 4. acres of tough
crab-apples in order to reach the required material, but all other work was done with the
Department's machinery iu the month of August. The embankment is now undergoing settlement, .after which a slight amount of hand-trimming and seeding will be necessary.
Maple Ridge Drainage No. 2.—Early in the year a petition was received from the majority
in value of the owners in the Maple Ridge Dyking District, praying that a comprehensive
scheme of drainage be provided that district under the provisions of section 58 of the " Dyking
Assessments Adjustment Act." Preliminary survey-work was carried out through the winter
by the Inspector of Dykes, and plans, memoranda, and assessment rolls were prepared and
submitted to a meeting of the petitioners in June.
The plans followed the lines of two proposals, each providing an outlet to every 40 acres,
but excluding certain sections where their potential " ability to pay ". was not apparent.
Proposal No. 1 contemplated doing a minimum amount of work over some 7,400 acres, and
embraced the construction of some 31.3 miles of laterals leading to existing natural waterways,
at an estimated cost of $35,600.
Proposal No. 2 anticipated the participation of the municipal corporation, and embraced the
same area as in No. 1 and the construction of some 41.66 miles of laterals, some of which are
located upon road allowances, which will be required for road purposes in the near future. The
estimated cost of the work embodied in this proposal was $52,030, and the amount of this to
be provided by the municipal corporation was $16,500.
The latter proposal was approved and is now being submitted to the municipal ratepayers
for their ratification of the corporation's share. When the different formalities have been
attended to a new drainage district will have been constituted, known as " Maple Ridge Drainage
District No. 2."
In order to take advantage of the good weather as well as to keep our organization intact,
a part of the work embodied in this scheme was commenced September 1st, and 2.3 miles were
completed at September 30th. This work was done along the lines of proposal No. 2, and the
Municipal Council have undertaken to reimburse the Department should their ratepayers fail
to ratify their participation in the general scheme.
Certain works were undertaken throughout the year in co-operation with the Department
of Public Works, in which the Dykes Department plant and organization were engaged, such as
the Allouette River-bank protection job and dredging gravel from the bed of that river for
road purposes.
Ordinary; Maintenance-work.
Ordinary maintenance-work embraces those works for which the Department had recognized
responsibility previous to the reorganization of three years ago and is concerned) with services
which are co-ordinated to the original expenditure of 1905. 15 Geo. 5 Inspector of Dykes. L 191
That expenditure constructed the lines of dykes in the several districts to prevent tide and
freshet water from submerging the lands which they protected. It provided flood-boxes with
automatic gates through which drainage-water escaped when the water-level outside w7as favourable and pumping machinery with which to lift the drainage-water from the enclosures when
the water-level outside was unfavourable to its gravitation. In addition, it constructed interception canals In some cases. Ordinary maintenance centres around these works and consists of
protection-works to guard against river-bank erosion, brushing, fencing, etc., with reference to
the dyke structures and interception canals, renewals and repairs to the flood-boxes and gates,
and the necessary care, upkeep, and operation with reference to the pumping machinery.
Protection-works.—A'ery little in the w7ay of protection-works was attempted during the year
because of the necessity for economy7. On the Pitt River in shoal water, where wave-action was
having a very detrimental effect, a remedy was provided by the very cheap method of anchoring
heavy broom-sticks in such a position as to break the wave-force. At another point the growth
of willows was encouraged, and at another point an old protective fence was repaired.
On the Fraser River at Matsqui there are two sections which will need attention in the near
future. One of these—namely, in Section 13, Township 17—is showing rapid river-bank erosion.
At this section, however, there is sufficient width of bank between the dyke and the river as to
allay immediate fears from the standpoint of the dyke's safety. At the present rate of erosion
the facts will require to be faced within ten years. At another section—namely, near the Gilford
Wharf—attention will be necessary immediately. Here the river has joined Matsqui Island
No. 1 and Matsqui Island No. 2 together and is building them up toward the Matsqui shore.
Both these sections are deep-water propositions. Some material, such as second-hand elevator-
cable, has been procured and is on hand for protection-work at the Gifford Wharf section, and
it is intended to make a start upon this section just as soon as next winter's river-ice shall
have run out. The problem here evolves itself into one of encouraging the river to deposit
material where required, and it is intended to try an inexpensive method—namely, anchoring
heavy trees intended to act as sweeps at points of vantage.
Brushing.—-Brushing in the main has been done throughout the year by private individuals
whose pasturing permits call for their doing the brushing in exchange for pasture privileges.
On the Pitt River, where the pasturing permits are not in demand, considerable was accomplished
by the dykes caretaker and pumpmen in their spare time.
Fencing.—Considerable fencing was necessary this year, particularly in the Matsqui District,
where the old fence was becoming unreliable. In Maple Ridge District some 1,500 feet of new
fence was built on the lower end of the McKinney Creek Diversion, where the adjacent owner
was threatening damage suit.
Seepage.—For years certain emergency work became necessary during high freshet stages
owing to seepage. This was particularly true in the case of the Matsqui Dyke, where an average
freshet, if continued over a duration of about three weeks, led to a saturated condition in the
base and lower section of the dyke. Here the borrow-ditch is on the outside of the dyke and this
has been in the habit of filling early in the freshet stage, which produced the same effect as a
long freshet period. Some earthen bulk-heads have been constructed in this borrow-ditch during
the last three years, which kept certain sections dry during the early stages and therefore reduced
the time of duration aud greatly lessened the amount of seepage. These have proven good
business, and it is hoped that the farmers whose holdings are affected by seepage can be
persuaded to give their teams and services to build more bulk-heads. During the year under
review no emergency work became necessary, though as a precaution one extra watchman was
employed on the Matsqui Dyke for a short time. The following table shows the spring and
summer freshet-heights for the past freshet as compared with those recorded in other years:— L 192

The following shows the time of duration compared with a few other years at Matsqui
Station:—■
Gates closed. Gates opened.

1922 May 16 July   21
1923 May    9 Aug.    4
1924 May 12 Sept.    2
From this comparison it will be seen that the peak this year arrived earlier than any yet
recorded, and that the gates Anally opened later than in any year for which records are available.
This will be further noted under " Pumping."
Pumping.—Pumping services were again continued to meet the requirements in the several
districts. These requirements depend upon freshet-heights and time of duration, together with
a small factor for precipitation at Matsqui, whereas in the districts lower down the river the
chief factor is precipitation, or rather the excess precipitation over evaporation. This is because
of the absence of interception canals at Matsqui and the presence of seepage.
The season under review was most peculiar, in that the gates at Matsqui closed and opened
three times, instead of one as is usual, so that although 106 days elapsed from the time the
pumping season started until it finally ended the pumping machinery was only in operation for
seventy days. A great deal of work was necessary this year previous to starting the pumps in
the Matsqui stations. One pump had to be relined and repacked and two defective pulleys had
to be reconditioned. In the case of one pulley its diameter had to be increased to eliminate an
overload on the motor, and the other, owing to the shape of its face, had worn out one belt in
three years. This condition was rectified and a new 22-inch leather belt was furnished. These
expenditures were included in ordinary maintenance charges for the year, but it is hoped that
a great deal of the pump troubles at Matsqui have been permanently solved and that similar
expense will not be recurring. J^TLiJ^&TkLJ^

o 15 Geo. 5 Inspector oi? Dykes. L 193
An electrical storm in the Pitt River locality burned out some of the coils in the motor at
Pitt Meadows No. 2, necessitating a considerable expenditure out of the ordinary, but beyond
this there was nothing out of the ordinary routine during the actual pumping season.
The equipment is all in good condition.
Flood-boxes.—The original wooden flood-boxes have been replaced by reinforced-concrete
structures, with three exceptions. One of the exceptions is at Slough No. 1, Matsqui, and this
is being carefully watched. Its renewal, however, must be dealt with in the near future, and
then not less than a 20-per-cent. increase in capacity should be provided.
It became necessary to renew several of the wooden gates or doors on the flood-boxes in the
Pitt River districts prior to the spring freshet. An improved type of door wyas provided wherever
an improvement was necessary, chiefly as regards the hinges. In. two cases provision was made
for letting the river-water in, it being considered probable that with improved drainage facilities
lack of sufficient water would lead to considerable inconvenience and loss in a specially dry season.
General.
The foregoing has dealt with the activities of the Dykes Branch for the year according to
established custom. Much detail has necessarily been omitted on account of space, but it is felt
that a slight trespass at this point is essential and therefore is pardonable.
Three years ago there was evident uncertainty as to the Government's security upon its
several advances to the districts referred to in this report, and a carefully planned campaign
of retrenchment and expansion was decided upon. It had been found that insufficient annuities%
had been exacted to retire many of the deferred maintenance accounts, and this condition was
rectified, necessitating an increase in the normal assessment rate. In the districts, on one hand,
there was a demand for increased service, and on the other a complaint against the rate of
taxation. The campaign decided upon reducing expenditure to the minimum on all but essential
services, and the expansion referred to above instituted such work as was necessary to lead to
the salvaging of the productive qualities of the soil, thereby7* making it possible for the landowners to increase production. This campaign is still in progress. The Government's interest
is being made secure and contentment is coming to the land-owners, especially in the Pitt River
districts, which districts had provided the chief cause for worry. There are, however, many
arguments to suggest the need of further retrenchment, but the method of bringing that end
about is not clear. Two main avenues present themselves to the writer as being worthy of a
full investigation, namely:—
(1.) Making amounts now standing to the credit of the various sinking fund accounts return
a higher yield than is possible under the system now in vogue.
(2.)  Reducing overhead by enlarging the area over which the Dykes Branch has jurisdiction.
Respectfully submitted.
Bruce Dixon,
Inspector of Dykes.
