REPORT OF THE PUBLIC AVORKS ENGINEER.
Parliament Buildings,
Victoria, B.C., August 7th, 1923.
J. B. Griffith, Esq.,
Deputy Minister of Public Works, Victoria, B.C.
Sir,—I have the honour to submit my report for the fiscal year 1922-23.
Organization and Labour.
With the merited promotion of T. Kilpatrick, the Provincial Superintendent of Bridges
and Buildings, to the General Managership of the Pacific Great Eastern Railway, some changes
in the staff were necessary. District Engineer Carruthers was made Provincial Bridge Engineer,
and Major R. M. Taylor, Assistant District Engineer, North Okanagan District, was promoted
to the District Engineer's office at Prince Rupert. Elsewhere, for the betterment of the service,
a few changes were made in the Engineering staff. It was with genuine regret that the Department accepted the resignation of Mr. Kilpatrick, whose capable and conscientious services
during a period of twelve years had won for him the greatest respect and keen admiration
alike of Minister and members of the staff.
Labour-supply was sufficient to meet demands, the Department in many districts arranging
the day-labour programme so as not to conflict with the busy agricultural periods which absorb
local labour. Although conditions were not so acute as in the previous years, some work
had to be undertaken during the winter months as relief measures.
Roads and TrjUls.
The year's programme of work was not so extensive as formerly, the major work having
been concerned with the completion of roads commenced in the previous year. Such important
trunk highways as the Rossland-Christina Lake section of the Trans-Provincial Highway and
the Three Valle.y-Taft -portion of the Eagle Pass Road were made available not only to an
appreciative travelling public, but also to the many interested settlers awaiting road connection
with the general highway system. Considerable portions of the Cariboo Road between Quesnel
and Fort George and of the Ymir Road between Nelson and the United States boundary were
well advanced during the year. An important undertaking was the construction of the 13
miles of the Yellowhead Pass Road between Mount Olie and Black Pool. With a view to
providing a direct highway outlet from the Arrow Lakes to the Okanagan, the Edgewood-
Vernon Road was extended 4 miles between Sand Creek and Deep Creek. While all the roads
mentioned are trunk highways of considerable assistance to settlers, several miles of lateral
roads were constructed specially for settlers' benefits in the irrigated areas at Oliver, the
Fort George District, and in the Omineca District. The Department is particularly anxious
to accommodate bona-fide settlers, and it is safe to say that all reasonable applications for
justifiable road connections were granted. While individually generally of a short length,
such settlers' roads in the aggregate comprise a considerable mileage involving a fair propo 'tion
of our highway funds. As much of the work as possible was undertaken by contract (details
of which will be found in a separate report), and as usual the results were very satisfactory.
Due chiefly to more stable conditions, favourable unit prices were in evidence amongst the
increased number of contractors tendering. The annual addition to our road mileage necessarily increases our responsibilities for maintenance and the day-labour forces have been kept
busy in an endeavour to conserve the original type of construction. Greater attention was
devoted to gravel surfacing of important travelled highways. With more motor-trucks available
for hauling, it has been possible to gravel a larger mileage than formerly. The greater use
of tractors has resulted in improved methods of dragging and reshaping highways at suitable
seasons. As motor-vehicles are now in evidence wherever there are a few miJes of roads,
greater attention has had to be given to keeping the roads passable for this type of transportation.    It is surprising the amount of good work accomplished by patrol gangs on high- C 6

ways in the outlying districts, considering the comparatively small funds at their disposal.
If the marked decrease of complaints as to road conditions generally is any index of the
public's appreciation of the Department's efforts to provide as good highways as is financially
practicable, then it is safe to conclude that the public is reasonably satisfied with present
progress.
Surveys.
In continuance of the Department's policy not to build any road or bridge before
proper surveys of all available locations have been made by competent engineers, there have
been extensive surveys undertaken in all parts of the Province. As a result thereof, road-
locations with good alignment and the best procurable grades have been procured. Further
reconnaissance-survey work was carried out in connection with the various proposed routes
for a highway connecting the Coast with the Interior.
Hard-surfacing.
While the amount of hard-surfacing was only 8.07 miles, or less than half the mileage
of the previous year (having been confined chiefly to the Trans-Provincial Highway between
New Westminster and Chilliwack), it must be remembered that extensive grading and filling
work were undertaken preparatory to paving the year following. As usual, the paving-work
was of a high order, evoking very favourable comment from the travelling public.
Federal Aid.
This year marked the completion of the programme under the " Canada Highways Act, 1919,"
the Department having earned its share (approximately $1,252,000) of the .'j>20,000,000 Federal
grant about eighteen months ahead of the five-year period ending March 31st, 1924. Full
details of the projects accomplished are given in a separate report. A considerable portion
of the construction-work was personally inspected by Chief Commissioner Campbell, Ottawa,
who amply testified as to the general excellence of the type and nature of construction. Opportunity is here taken to place on record the splendid services and co-operative efforts consistently
rendered by W. A. Gonriay, the Dominion Inspecting Engineer, in furthering this very important
work.
Classification of Highways.
Further work of classifying highways considered by the Department to be entitled to
classification was undertaken. The following table will serve to illustrate the situation as
at March 31st, 1923:—

Full particulars of the highways classified in city and district municipalities will be found
in a separate statement. As was anticipated, this policy of the Department to confine its
expenditures in organized districts to such classified highways is functioning satisfactorily.
It is worthy of special comment that the various Councils and their officials are now endeavouring to co-operate fully with the Department and its officials in an attempt to bring such
highways to such a generally good condition as available funds will permit.
Bridges.
The Department was fortunate in having amongst its District Engineers one with both
theoretical and practical knowledge of bridge-construction, and A. L. Carruthers will prove
a worthy successor to T. Kilpatrick.
As a result of the Iatter's thorough inspection periodically of all bridges of any consequence,
there has been a marked improvement in the maintenance of bridges, much economical renewal

and repair work having been done to prolong the life of many partially defective structures.
The construction-work has also been of a generally high order owing to more careful inspection
of both materials and workmanship. A gratifying feature of the bridge-work is the increasing
amount of day-labour construction very satisfactorily and economically undertaken. Such
achievements have been rendered possible through the training of special bridge-construction
crews under competent foremen. In furthering its policy to replace important timber structures
with steel, the Department constructed a substantial steel bridge of 200-foot span on concrete
abutments over the Coquitlam River at Port Coquitlam (see photograph). A contract was
also awarded for the construction ot a steel structure to replace the timber bridge over the
Columbia River at Revelstoke, and some of the substructure was undertaken during the
winter.    Following are other  important bridges constructed during the fiscal  year:—

160-foot Howe truss-concrete piers.
Slmswap River	
SO-foot queen truss.
One 180-foot Howe truss-pile piers.
One  60-foot king truss-pile piers.
Ferries.
The Department now operates directly .or indirectly fifty-two ferries, of which six are
subsidized. Twenty-four of the ferries 'are of the pontoon type. Five are steam or gas boats.
A detailed list of all ferries is given in a separate report, which shows the type of ferry and
traffic returns thereon.
With the exception of eight ferries, the ferry services are free. Even where tariffs are
charged, the receipts on Government-owned ferries are not generally sufficient to meet the
operating costs, a fact not generally known to those benefiting by the ferry services. The new
ferries installed or renewed during the fiscal year were:—
Agassiz-Roscdale, Fraser River:   Boat with two 35-horse-power gas-engines.
Donald, Columbia River :   Scow.
Fort St. James, Stuart River: Pontoon.
Taylor's Flat, Peace River:   Scow writh gas-engine.
Francois Lake:   Steel hull, double-ended twin screw with two 30-horse-power engines.
Extensive river-bank protection and clearing of the river-bed, etc., were undertaken on
the Vedder River with a view to preventing erosion of the river-banks and the roads abutting
thereon and to overcome the flooding of valuable land.
The work, which was done under the provisions of the "River-bank Protection Act" (the
only application received since the Act was passed in March, 1919), has already proved
beneficial  to the many property-owners and  interests directly and indirectly  involved.
Unless the work is amply justified in the protection and preservation of roads and bridges,
the Department is not carrying out such protection-work to the same extent as formerly,
thereby effecting considerable saving in expenditures.
Regulation of Vehicular Traffic.
Some progress was made towards limiting the loads on main-trunk highways in the Lower
Mainland and Vancouver Island. Restrictions were placed on vehicular traffic during the
winter period. Judging from the observations of the district officials, the owners and operators
of trucks are gradually coming to recognize the need for " limiting the loads to suit the road "
as the essential requirement in the conservation of the road-bed. There is, however, still
great need for educating truck-drivers in the matter of regulating not only the load but also
the speed of trucks. C 8 Public Works Report  (1922-23).
General.
During the year as many inspection trips as time would permit were made throughout
the Province. In this way not only were the chief construction-works inspected and the road
system travelled over in person, but considerable first-hand information was obtained about
a large number of problems under consideration by the Department. In this connection I
would like to place on record the helpful assistance rendered by and the valuable data obtained
from such public bodies as Boards of Trade, Farmers' Institutes, etc. The Department is
endeavouring, as far as practicable, to co-operate with all organizations with a view to
providing and maintaining public works for " the greatest good of the greatest number." As
for the help derived from and the splendid work generally done by the District Engineers,
the Supervising Architect, and their assistants, I have nothing but gratitude and praise to
offer.
The excellent results which have been achieved during this year have, in a very large
measure, been due to the unfailing support and advice which I have received both from the
Honourable the Minister and yourself. I wish also to take this opportunity of thanking the
members of the Public Works Department for their loyal support and hearty co-operation in
satisfactorily carrying out the various duties entrusted to them.
The accompanying reports of the District Engineers and the Supervising Architect are
more comprehensive than usual and are well worthy of careful perusal.
All of which is respectfully submitted.

Public Works Engineer.
ENGINEERING DISTRICT No. 1.
(Note.—The position of District Engineer having been abolished, the Assistant District
Engineers, etc., now report direct to the Public Works Engineer, Victoria.)
Report of W. P. Beavan, Assistant District Engineer for Alberni District.
Roads and Trails.—A distinct improvement in the maintenance of roads throughout the
district was noticeable during the year; this is partly due to a better state of discipline of
foremen and others engaged on our work, together with trie use of motor equipment. The few
complaints received were not due to work improperly done, but to lack of funds to do the work.
No extensive construction-work from the district vote funds was done. The most important
on the year's list was No. 178, Pratt's Road, where work preparatory to the completion of that
between the Canadian Highway and Grafton Avenue is well advanced.
Under the "Highway Loan Act, 1920," the Island Highway for a distance of 1.25 miles
north of Wellington Station was rebuilt, weak spots being carefully made up with crushed rock,
the road ditched throughout, and corrugated-iron culverts installed. The road at this place
parallels Long Lake.
Under the " Highway Loan Act, 1920," construction on No. 19 Ueluelet-Tofino Road, was
resumed. Very little new work had been done on this road since about the year 1914, except for
some preparatory work, such as stumping and grubbing in readiness for grading, that it was
possible to do from district vote moneys during the preceding three years. The road when
completed«will serve a considerable volume of business and should prove not the least among the
tourist attractions of the Island. The location of the road, approximately 100 feet above sea-
level, where the first view of the ocean is to be had, is such that a wide panorama is afforded,
the full extent of Long Beach to the east and west being taken in.
Mining Trails.—Vote 301, " Mines Development Act": All work under this heading was
done by the several persons interested in the respective mining properties, with the exception of
the work on the China Creek Trail. This work was only partly completed by Department
forces; work was stopped with the advent of winter and will be resumed as soon as possible
this year.
Bridges.—No extensive reconstruction was done during the year, the work being principally
the replacement of old log-stringer structures by standard timber trestles, the average cost of
which was $7 per lineal foot. Where this figure is exceeded the cost per lineal foot includes
log-crib or bulk-head work  and fills.    This satisfactory  result is due  to  the employment of . ■

G. Cathcart as Bridge Foreman, and you will note that, for instance, at Bridge 184, Quatsino, the
. cost, inclusive of all supervision charges, is $8.40 per lineal foot.
There is nothing cf special importance to report in connection with bridge maintenance for
the year. The cost of clearing snow from the bridges during the winter exceeded that necessary
in previous years, as in places snow lay to a depth of 5 feet and was followed' by heavy rainfall.
The only damage done by the weight of snow was to Bridge 107, McCoy Lake Road, Alberni,
a log-stringer structure built in 1913, where three stringers cracked.
Miscellaneous Works.—River-bank protection work at French Creek, immediately above
Bridge 23 on the Island Highway at Parksville, was done. This work has so far held well, but
it should be extended before the: new bridge is built.
A large log-jam was removed from Cameron River at the point where this river parallels
the Canadian Highway immediately east of the Alberni Summit. Further work will be necessary
from time to time at the same place.
An addition to this Department's cabin at Cameron Lake, on the Canadian Highway, was
built, enabling the accommodation of a larger gang.
Report of O. W. Smith, Assistant District Engineer for Comox District.
The writer took over the work in this district on June 1st, 1922. At that time the spring
repairs on the roads had been carried out, but the major portion of the year's programme of
work liad not heen started. After reorganizing the office staff and work, which occupied about
three weeks, I visited the various parts of the district as rapidly as it could be arranged, and
instructed the foremen about the work to be done.
In July the Merville area, Salmon River territory, and portions of the Mainland were
subjected to destructive forest fires. These fires burned out five bridges in the Merville area,
four in the Salmon River territory, one at Shushartie, and one on the Mainland. In addition,
a number of small culverts were destroyed or damaged. This unlooked-for contingency caused
much extra work and expense.
During the winter season two snow-storms, one in December and the second in February,
tied up traffic on our roads, thereby requiring expenditure out of the road vote for clearing and
breaking out the most-travelled portions of our highways in thisi territory.
Several new farm roads were constructed during the year and a number of old logging-
grades taken over in the Merville Land Settlement Area. Trunk roads in the Courtenay area
were maintained in good condition for traffic.
Bridges.—Eleven bridges which were burned out by forest fires were either replaced by new
structures or with culverts and fills. The Salmon River Suspension Bridge at the second crossing
was completed and a new bridge built at Trent River. Eeplanking and repairs were carried out
on a number of bridges in different, parts of the district.
Numerous applications were received for the construction of new roads in outlying parts
of the district, but in most cases funds were not available for the new work applied for. About
$5,000 of a special appropriation was expended on the construction of roads in the Merville Land
Settlement Area.
The rapid increase of high-speed motor traffic on the roads in this district results in a steady
demand for more and better roads. The maintenance work on all roads, and especially the main
roads, has greatly increased owing to the ever-increasing motor traffic of all descriptions.
Surveys for the purpose of establishing the permanent location of portions of our main
roads are needed. Funds are now being spent annually in the maintenance and betterment of
roads which have never been properly located. If a permanent location were made, a portion
of the annual expenditure could be devoted to bringing these roads to a more satisfactory and
permanent state.
Report of P. J. Campbell, General Road Fore.vian for Islands and Saanich Districts.
Roads.—In the Islands District 3 miles of new road were constructed and a rock-crusher
(installed the year previous) operated with excellent results. A large amount of regrading,
ditching, and installation of new culverts w~as done and several miles of new road located.
Bridges.—Several new bridges were built and some reconstructed; minor repairs being made
to others.
Work done in Saanich District consisted mainly of maintenance and cutting off bad corners.
PROVINCIAL- LIBRARY.
VICTORIA, B- C C 10 Public Works Report (1922-23).
Report of C. A. Helgesen, General Road Foreman for Esquimalt Electoral District.
Roads.—On taking over the Esquimalt District on July 15th, 1922, I found that there was
approximately $17,000 unexpended in the district vote, besides highway loan to the extent of
$2,500 for improvements on the Sooke Road and $3,500 for the Malahat Drive.
Dealing first with the highway loan, that allotted to Sooke Road wasi used to complete the
diversion at Cooper's Cove, also to reconstruct approximately 1% miles of road from Sooke
River Bridge West, on the main road. The Cooper's Cove diversion has been a marked improvement, as it did away with a dangerous curve at approach to Naylor's Hill. The reconstruction,
including drainage, etc., stood the winter well. The Malahat Drive allotment was used to crush
rock and dump same at most needed points for winter and spring deposit and to widen the road
at bad bends, etc., and has given good results, as the condition of the Malahat Drive through last
winter will testify.
Owing to the smallness of the district vote no new work was undertaken other than to carry
out work previously laid out. One new road was built to give access from Metchosin Cross-road
to Sections 9 and 10 (Beckingham's) ; length, one-half mile.
In the fall there was introduced the section patrol system, whereby one light truck with
driver and three men were given a section, averaging 30 miles, of main and side roads to keep
in repair.    In spite of limited funds this system has been an unqualified success.
The special grant of $10,000 made this spring to relieve unemployment, coming at a time
when the district vote funds were almost nil, not only achieved its purpose, but also enabled many
needed improvements to be made to roads throughout the district.
Bridges.—Bridge-work had all been laid out before I took over the district. This comprised
building one new bridge on Millstream Road and repairs to various bridges in the district,
re-decking, re-covering deck, etc. In the early spring work was started on new cut and fill at
Bridge No. 11-1 (Albert Head Twin). This has been completed and has been much appreciated
by the residents and users of Albert Head Road, as not only was 218 feet of old bridge cut out,
but the road is shortened and the grade lessened.
Every reasonable opportunity is being taken to substitute permanent cut and fill work for
bridges, which are very numerous in the district, many of these being too light for traffic.
Repobt of C. Donnelly, Assistant District Engineer for Cowichan,  NaNjVIMO,  and
Newcastle Districts.
Roads and Trails.—The following new work was carried out at Cowichan: One mile of
Anderson's Road, being part of Silver Mine Trail; three-quarters of a mile of Shawnigan-Mill
Bay Road Diversion; continuation of the Forrest-Hillbank Road; and clearing and slashing
Shawnigan Lake Station Road. In addition to usual ma'intenance-work, a very considerable
number of improvements were effected.
The roads were maintained in very fair repair throughout the year and the few complaints
from the public were given immediate and satisfactory attention. Excessive snow and logging
operations were responsible for most of the complaints. During the winter severe frost, and
especially an abnormal snowfall, caused extensive damage. The clearing of this snow from the
Island Highway and mail routes used up a lot of the appropriation. Almost immediately the
frost left the ground grading was commenced, but unfortunately dry wreather accompanied by
hot wind dried up the surface so rapidly that very little grading could be effectively carried out.
Logging traffic on the by-roads has been very heavy in places, but was curtailed during the
period frost was coming out of the ground. The new traffic regulations proved of great value
and enabled the Department to curtail and limit heavy traffic during the critical time in the
spring.
Particular care and attention were given to ditching and drainage and a very considerable
amount was carried out.
Bridges.—The old Wilkinson Bridge, No. 7-109, over Millstream, on the Island Highway,
14 miles south of the City of Duncan, was completely replaced by a new one, measuring 200
lineal feet; the type being standard king truss 64 feet, with framed bent approaches. The deck
or floor level was raised 4 feet, and this not only improved the grade, but saved a large sum
which otherwise would have been required for false-work. McBride Point, Cameron Lake, Bridge 1-56, Canadian Highway, 13 miles from Alberni.  14 Geo. 5 Report of Engineer, District No. 2. C 11
The old king truss on Pimbury Bridge, No. 7-90, was replaced by a new one at a cost of
$1,633 and the work was quickly finished. Traffic was not inconvenienced at all, a good diversion
being open before the bridge was closed.
Twenty-three bridges were repaired and are in good order and minor repairs to twenty-five
others were carried out.
River-bank Protection.—The river-bank at Haslam Creek Bridge, No. 22-17, was in great
danger. This was overcome by securing wire rope to the piles of the retaining-wall and passing
the ropes under the road and anchoring the ends to trees. The retaining-wall, which was
erected some years ago to protect the bank and road, was being undermined and falling out
of plumb.
Farther south protection-work had to be done to prevent the creek at this location from
cutting through its bank and the South Wellington Road, which follows the creek a short
distance here. The current was also diverted, to some extent by cutting a new channel and
the stones removed therefrom used for this work in conjunction with fascines. This work saved
the creek-bank and the road, also the approaches to the bridge.
Work of a similar nature was carried out at Cowichan Bay to protect the Island Highway,
which runs alongside the bay.
Large log-jams wrere removed from Haslam Creek and the Nanaimo River.
General.—About seventy road-signs, some necessary danger-signs, and a few railway-crossing
signs were erected. The road-signs were very necessary and have supplied a long-felt public
want.
Tarvia has been very successfully used with gravel (just sufficient tarvia to coat the pebbles)
at the approaches to floors of bridges for a strip about 2 feet wide. It prevents ravel and keeps
the gravel in place, doing away with the nasty jolts to cars crossing.
Returned soldiers were given work whenever possible. No relief-work has been carried out
this year.
Some $1,500 was spent on the Holdeu-Corso Road from the " Highway Loan, 1920."
"Mines Development Act."—Work was done at the end of Sutton Trail on the Chemainus
River and the Silver Leaf Group of Mineral Claims Trail from Cowichan Lake to Jump River.
REPORT OF ENGINEER, DISTRICT No. 2.
District Engineer's Office,
Court-house, New Westminster, B.C., May 15th, 1923.
P. Philip, Esq.,
Public Works Engineer, Victoria, B.C.
Sir,—I beg to submit annual report for year 1922-23 for District No. 2, comprising Chilliwack, Delta, Dewdney, North Vancouver, New Westminster, South Vancouver, Richmond, and
a portion of Yale Electoral Districts.
Chilliwack District.—The most important works carried out during the year were as
follows:—
Paving on the Provincial Highway, Project No. 9, Section G: This section of highway
runs easterly a distance of 3.07 miles from the eastern boundary of Chilliwack City. The
pavement is 16 feet wide and has a 2-inch bithulithic 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 lS-inch shoulders. Practically no material
was borrowed for the shoulders for the first 2% miles. It was found necessary to haul gravel
to form all the shoulders on the last half" a mile of the contract, the depth of metalling on this
section not being sufficient to stand scarifying. The old road-bed provided an excellent foundation for the pavement, with the exception of about 200 feet at the west end of the work, which
had to be back-filled. Some trouble was encountered with the 6-inch water-pipe laid under the
road-bed. A good through drainage system was provided for by side-ditches being dug along
both sides of the entire pavement.    Concrete pipe was used for all culverts.
Vedder River-bank Protection: The work of reconstructing the Vedder River wall was
started in September, under the terms of the " River-bank Protection Act." The work was
divided into two sections—A and B;   A section comprised the rebuilding of the rock wall and C 12 Public Works Report  (1922-23).
B section the clearing, straightening, deepening, and general improvements of the river between
the British Columbia Electric Railway Bridge and the Vedder River Crossing, a distance of
S1^ miles. B section was supervised by F. N. Sinclair, Chief Engineer of the Sumas dyking
Si'beme. The work progressed favourably until the first week of December. From that date to
the middle of February the work was held up considerably owing to heavy snow and general
stormy weather, but by the end of the year about two-thirds of the work was completed.
Approximately 7,000 cubic yards of large-sized rock were hauled on flat cars from the quarry
to the rock-fill, a distance of 2,200' fee+, 113 acres of log-jams were burnt and cleared from the
river, and 2,100 cubic yards of excavation were done on the opening-up of new channels.
Chilliwack River Road: The work of connecting up the road around the gravel-slide, a
distance of 1,100 feet on the Chilliwack River Road, was started about March 1st. The river
was diverted back into the old channel and a cedar log crib, 750 feet in length, built around
the base of the slide and filled in with heavy boulders from the slide. When this work is
completed a through road will be established for vehicular traffic, a distance of 7 miles up the
valley, serving a number of settlers and opening up considerable new territory. Previous to this
diversion the only means of access was by fording two crossings of the river in low water, or
a pack-trail on the higher level during freshets.
Ferries: The new Agassiz-Rosedale Ferry " Sea Wolf," which was built by the New Westminster Marine Railway Company, went into commission on June 3rd, 1922. This ferry is of
double-ended construction, driven by two Atlas 35-horse-power gasolene-engines, and is capable of
carrying nine automobiles. From June 3rd to March 31st 4,225 autos, 620 rigs, 9,620 passengers,
320 animals, and approximately 100 tons of freight were transported. The ferry has given
excellent service, although during the low-water period it was unable to land at the permanent
slip on the Rosedale side. A suitable site was found about a quarter of a mile down the river
with the required depth of water close to the river-bank. A large log float was built to serve
as a landing, which proved very satisfactory. Three weeks in December the ferry was tied up
on account of a heavy ice-flow. The river became jammed; the water and ice, then raised
about 18 feet high, was left on either bank.
General: The remaining work consisted of ordinary maintenance and repairs on the gravel
roads throughout the district. About 15,000 cubic yards of gravel were hauled and spread over
the Trans-Provincial Highway. Repairs were also made to several bridges. A considerable
amount of ditching was done and several old cedar culverts were replaced with concrete pipe.
The additional two Ford trucks granted to this district have reduced the cost of maintenance
and general repairs and have proved to be serviceable for patrolling the respective beats.
Delta District.—During the past year a considerable amount of permanent highway was
constructed through the district. From the Johnston Road to the Serpentine Flats, a distance
of 2.9 miles, was surfaced with an 18-foot wide and 7-inch thick concrete pavement. The
subgrade encountered on this stretch was ideal. The usual care was taken to provide adequate
drainage.
On the stretch of the Provincial Highway from Langley Prairie to Murrayville, a distance
of 1.89 miles, a 16-foot concrete pavement was laid. This replaces one of the worst sections
of the highway, between New Westminster and Chilliwack, to maintain. Particular care was
paid to provide adequate drainage, the culverts generally being enlarged and constructed with
metal-pipe culverts. This stretch of paving is probably the most popular piece of pavement
undertaken by the Department in recent years.
As it was altogether likely that the fill constructed across the Serpentine Flats would be
paved during the coming fiscal year, and also that the Pacific Highway from Cloverdale to the
International Boundary would be paved, it was decided to undertake any tilling that would
be required in order to have a subgrade ready for an early start on paving next year.
With this in view, about 11,000 cubic yards of material were placed on the Serpentine Flats fill
to provide shoulders and to bring up the embankment to grade where it had settled since
construction.
On the Nicomekl Flats, a distance of about 3.03 miles, it was found necessary to raise the
roadway preparatory to paving, in order to have the embankment above the annual flood-level
of the Nicomekl River. About 20,000 cubic yards of material were placed in this fill, making
the new road formation 25 feet wide and approximately 18 inches above the old roadway.
The material used was a run-of-bank gravel and this proved extremely satisfactory, and although Cariboo  Road,   Project  16,  Section  B.     Looking north  from   Station  174 + 00.     December   6th,   1922.

the roadway was at no time closed to traffic during the carrying-out of the work, there was
no inconvenience to the travelling public, as the material used was of a first-rate road-building
quality. Ditches averaging 5 feet deep were dug along both sides of the new embankment
and numerous culverts provided, in order to prevent the new embankment, in any sense, becoming
a dyke during high water in the Nicomekl.
The rest of the work throughout the district consisted of the usual maintenance for the
upkeep of the gravelled roads on the Trans-Provincial Highway and the Pacific Highway.
The tourist traffic was exceedingly heavy and a great deal of attention was paid to patching
and grading the roads to keep them in good repair. Where found necessary, several narrow
sections of the road were widened out.    Considerable ditching was done throughout the district.
The Johnston and McLennan Road detours were maintained during the paving of the
highway. These detours required close attention on account of the poor condition of these roads,
which were very narrow for the heavy tourist traffic.
Canoe Pass Bridge: A contract was let to build ferry landings at Canoe Pass, and it has
been decided to use a ferry to replace the Canoe Pass Bridge, which is considered to be dangerous
for traffic owing to the scouring-out of the foundation of the piers.
Generally speaking, the gravel roads throughout the district are in better condition at the
end of this year than they have been at any time during previous years.
Dewdney District.—In Dewdney District the greater portion of expenditure on roads was
for general repairs and maintenance. Little road-construction was undertaken in the last year,
with the exception of the loco-Port Moody Road and the Ioco-Sunnyside Road.
On the loco-Port Moody Road about $3,400 was expended in spreading gravel. This work
having been done in the late spring, there is every reason to suppose that the numerous inhabitants of loco will be freed from the period of isolation each winter during the frosty season.
The work on the Ioco-Sunnyside Road consisted of the completion of the section from the
loco Townsite to the old road. The new road shows a marked improvement in grade and a
vastly better surface.    About $3,600 was expended on this road.
The po'rtion of Section 2, Dewdney Trunk Road, passing through the ground of the Mental
Hospital at Essondale was resurfaced with a 3-inch bituminous macadam top. This section is
now in first-class condition.
Generally speaking, the roads in Dewdney District were in an excellent state of repair at
the close of the past fiscal year.
The freshet of the Fraser River as usual caused some trouble at Nicomen Island, but owing
to the fact that the dykes were broken on the river-front no large expenditure was made in
attempting to keep out the water.
Bridges: In bridge-work a 20O-foot steel span on concrete piers supported by piles was
constructed across the Coquitlam River at Coquitlam to replace the two 120-foot wooden Howe
trusses, one of which was destroyed during the flood of October, 1921. The removal of the
centre pier has resulted in the river adopting a course practically iu the centre of the channel.
With a greater clearance at this bridge and the Canadian Pacific Railway Bridge, immediately above, a repetition of the flooding which occurred through the town in October, 1921, will
not likely occur. The Provincial Government, together with the Dominion Government,
constructed a diversion at a point near Essondale, thereby avoiding a large log-jam and straightening the channel. The benefit of this diversion has already been realized by the cessation of
flooding of the adjoining roads at slight rises of the river.
Ferries: The ferry landings at Mission were completely reconstructed from the piles up,
with the exception of 7C0 feet along the dyke at Matsqui, which portion was filled with gravel
hauled from near Abbotsford. The cost of constructing this fill was less than the estimated cost
for repairs, and no further expense, other than slight maintenance, will be incurred on this
portion.
At the Boys' Industrial School the Public Works Department carried on grading operations
and improvement of the ground for the Attorney-General's Department.
North Vancouver District.—Vhe work carried out in this district differs very slightly from
that of former years. Generally speaking, a; decided improvement can be seen on ail the roads
and trails in the district. Very little new development has taken place. The Healey Trail and
the Bargain Harbour Trail were the two to receive most attention during the year. The Squamish District has been a very costly one to carry during the year owing to the
floods taking the road out at several places, and also the river making heavy cutting into the
roads. The amount of money spent in this district on roads was $4,200.87; river-bank protection,
$2,251.05; bridges, $4,608.05; dykes. $20.76; making a total of $11,000.55.
In the Pemberton Valley District considerable improvements have been made. Two miles
of the main road have been reconstructed. There have been several bridges repaired and two
100-foot Howe trusses replaced over the Lillooet.
New Westminster District.—The River Road was surfaced with Tarvia " B " flush-coat.
The work on other streets in the district required general repairs, which consisted of grading,
gravelling, clearing, and ditching.
Richmond District.—During the above year in the Richmond District there has been very
little of any new work done. Considerable work has been done, however, in the matter of
repairing the Marine Drive, Imperial Street, and No. 3 Road.
Bridges: Replacement of the Bburne Bridges by more permanent structures requires earnest
consideration. The Howe trusses are very old, and although there is not a very great sign of
decay noticeable in the timber, these trusses have now reached the age limit) of their usefulness.
Ferries: The Ladner-Woodward Ferry ran during the year fairly well to schedule, except
during the ice-flow in the river, when it was impossible to navigate with safety. This ferry
has been running considerably under the last year's cost, due to the fact that much less fuel
is being used and great care is being taken of the supplies by the officers in charge. During the
spring of the year, when the easterly gales were prevalent, the pontoon at the Woodward's
Landing sunk, and during the operation of raising a temporary landing had to be made for
passengers and milk, this being the only other matter which marred the schedule of the ferry.
University site: As a measure of relief for the benefit of unemployed married men or single
men with dependents, the sum of $100,000 was allotted by the Government during Christmas
week to be expended in clearing and improving the lands adjacent to the University Reserve at
Point Grey. These lands comprise a large area set aside to be sold for the purpose of constructing the University buildings. The area upon which it was decided to carry out initial clearing
operations was that lying along both sides of Tenth Avenue from the University Reserve boundary
to Blanca Street.
The results obtained on the work were remarkable in view of the fact that no effort was
made to select experienced men and no man was discharged for incompetency. A total area of
over 100 acres was cleared and grubbed, while an additional area was cleared only. The cost
per acre compared most favourably with estimates of experienced contractors.
I wish to draw attention to the indefatigable efforts of the Superintendent, Mr. McAllister,
to whose capable management the successful carrying-on of the operation was largely due.
South Vancouver District.—In South Vancouver District the sum of $7,698.12 was expended
in flush-coating Kingsway, in Burnaby Municipality. Also on the Hastings-Barnet Road
$14,193.62 was expended in grading, ditching, and applying 4,056 cubic yards of gravel. The
result of the gravelling has been a marked improvement, and this road, ordinarily impassable
in the winter, remained in excellent condition through the frosty weather of 1922-23.
On the Hastings-Barnet Road $2,823.98 was expended in repairing the section from Sperling
Avenue to Barnet for gravelling during the coming year.
The Government also participated in repairs to Riverway to the extent of $1,057.18, most
of which was for permanent culverts.
Other expenditures for maintenance on classified highways were made on Kingsway,
Hastings-Barnet, River and North Roads; this work being done by the Municipality of Burnaby.
Yale District.—In the portion of Yale District under our supervision the only construction-
work carried out during the year was on the trunk road—West Side of Harrison Bay—2.47
miles having been built. This section of the road was mostly side-hill work of solid rock
formation, the clearing being exceedingly heavy.    The work was closed down, on August 1st.
A pack-trail was constructed a distance of approximately 2 miles between Harrison Bay
and Agassiz.
The balance of the work in this district consisted of the usual maintenance and ditching.
The Hope-Rosedale Road was greatly improved for traffic for this class of road, but mostly
all the bridges are in poor condition and need replacing. ■■'■:- .'■■."

REPORT OF ENGINEER, DISTRICT No. 3.
District Engineer's Office,
Kamloops, B.C., July 10th, 1923.
P. Philip, Esq.,
Public Works Engineer, Victoria, B.C.
Sir,—I beg to submit annual report for Kamloops and Yale Districts for the year 1922-23.
Maintenance.—District No. 3 now comprises approximately 2,300 miles of roads, extending
from the Coast climate with its rainy seasons into the Dry Belt with its cloudbursts.
The year 1922-23 was rather disastrous from cloudburst damages, one storm on the Kam-
loops-Merritt Road requiring $2,500 to repair the damage; other major damage occurred in the
vicinity of Douglas Lake, Savoua, and Deadman Creek. Notwithstanding these unforeseen drains
on our district votes and calls made on us for the construction of settlers' roads, practically every
mile in the district was covered, either by grader or patrol gangs. Ford trucks were found very
convenient for covering the outlying parts of /the district, where it would have been found too
expensive to send a large gang with graders.
Bridges.—While no large structures were built this year, a large number of smaller bridges
had to be renewed and several new structures were built on the Kamloops-Yellowhead and
Chase-Squilax-Sorrento Roads.
The breaking of an irrigation storage-dam near Nicola partially destroyed two bridges, which
had to be repaired at considerable cost. The usual amount of repair-work was done as recommended by the Bridge Engineer after his annual inspection trip.
Ferries.—The district has thirteen cable-ferries and one tug and scow ferry, nine ferries
being on the North Thompson River, one on the South Thompson, one on the Little River, one
on the Shuswap Lake, and one on the Fraser River near Lytton. These ferries are inspected
from time to time so as to ensure the safety of the public. In the winter they are usually pulled
out of the water and given a thorough overhauling. During the past year the position of the
Vavenby Ferry was changed so as to be more convenient for the people in the vicinity of Lost
Creek.
Construction.—Considerable work was done on the 1-Mile Creek Road, and while the public
are now travelling over it, it is not yet completed. The most important piece of work done
during the year was the start made on the Kamloops-Yellowhead Pass Project, 13 miles of heavy
rock-work having been completed. On the Chase-Squilax-Sorrento Road (which when built will
become a link in the main road between Chase and Salmon Arm) 6 miles were constructed
during the year. Other construction was done under the district vote expenditure in the nature
of colonization roads.
Municipalities.—Three blocks (1,140 feet) in the City of Salmon Arm, classified as a
secondary highway, were paved with a 6y2-inch concrete slab. The work was done by contract
and was economically and efficiently carried out.
In the City of Merritt that portion of the Merritt-Princeton Road lying within the municipality was scarified, regraded, and macadamized. Both of these works were done on a 50-50
basis with the municipalities. Work in the nature of macadamizing was also done on a 50-50
basis with the Rural Municipality of Salmon Arm.
Surveys.—Surveys were made for the extension of the Kamloops-Yellowhead Pass Road as
far as Blue River. Bridge surveys and soundings were made during the winter for the renewal
of the Kamloops West Bridge, also for new bridges at Squilax, across the Little River, and at
the Josephine Ranch across the North Thompson.
Respectfully submitted.

REPORT OF ENGINEER, DISTRICT No. 4.
District Engineer's Office,
Penticton, B.C., May 25th, 1923.
P. Philip, Esq.,
Public Works Engineer, Victoria, B.C.
Sir,—I beg to submit herewith my general report of the work done in the above district
during the fiscal year 1922-23.
Roads.—On the main trunk roads throughout this district the traffic has increased very
considerably during the past fiscal year. I would venture to state that our main highway from
the International Boundary-line to Salmon Arm has to take care of more traffic and tonnage
than any other road of the same length in the Interior of British Columbia.
The approximate cost of the upkeep, including supervision, for the 2,690 miles of roads
under my supervision averages $60 per mile. A very considerable amount of gravelling and
other improvements, such as widening, etc., has been done, and, generally speaking, I think
it can be said that the roads have been kept in very fair condition considering the amount
of the appropriation. There have been very few complaints that could have been considered
reasonable.
Of course, at certain times of the year it is very difficult to maintain earth and gravel
roads in perfect condition under heavy traffic. It is not an exaggeration to say that approximately 250,000 tons of produce are hauled over our main highway and arteries during the
season. I find that, no matter how much attention is paid to roads of this class, it is impossible
to keep them in condition, for the reason that the more work we put on the roads, especially
when they are kept in perfect condition, the heavier are the loads that the farmers and others
haul over them. Trucks hauling fruit and lumber of a gross load of from 10 to 12 tons per
truck are now noticeable.
It has been conclusively proven to me that our system of maintenance in the past is
practically obsolete to-day in so far as the practice of distributing loose gravel to fill up chuck-
holes, ruts, etc., is concerned. What we require for our main arteries is machinery—i.e.,
scarifiers, tractors, graders, and rollers—to break up and resurface the main trunk roads at
least once a year. This system properly organized would probably cost less than the method
we are using at present. This, of course, only applies to roads which have to accommodate
this heavy traffic.
Trails.—A considerable amount of work has been done in clearing out pack-trails for miners,
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.—One hundred and eight bridges have been repaired, thirty-two renewed, and two
new structures erected. Of the new structures, one is a 132-foot Howe truss over the Tulameen
River at Coalmont, and a 96-foot pile trestle over the Okanagan River to give access to lots under
the Southern Okanagan Irrigation Project.    New Howe-truss spans erected are as follows:—
One 132-foot span with concrete abutments, Coalmont; one 160-foot span with concrete
abutments and approaches over the Kettle River 6 miles east of Rock Creek; one 150-foot
span with concrete abutments and approaches over the Kettle River at Carson; one 100-foot
span with pile abutments and approaches at Grindrod over the Shuswap River; and one
90-foot span with pile abutments and approaches over the Kettle River near Beaverdell. The
cost of these bridges has decreased about 20 per cent, over the last fiscal year. AVe can build
as economically with well-organized day-labour as by contract.
Ferries (all subsidised).—Three ferries are operated in this district, as follows: Shuswap
Lake Steamboat Service, which runs,twice a week to Salmon Arm; Kelowna-Westbank Ferry,
on our primary highway; and Summerland-Naramata Ferry.
Ferrymen engaged in operating these ferries all report a considerable increase in traffic
over the former years.
First-class Highway Construction (Primary).—Some 33.5 miles of the above class of highway was constructed in this district during the last fiscal year, as follows: Kelowna-Vernon
Road Diversion, 1 mile of this was constructed; Provincial Demonstration Farm to Osoyoos,
10 miles; on the Trans-Provincial Highway from 9-Mile Creek West—i.e., part of the Osoyoos-
9-MiIe Road—3Y2 miles. ^-?'t\:fi:.-?.p,K.

From Santa Rosa Creek Summit to Sophia Mountain Summit, in Rossland District, completing the link between Cascade and Rossland, 19 miles. This completes the link from
Princeton to Nelson or Lytton to Nelson. All this was very heavy construction; in fact, I
do not know of any road in British Columbia of a heavier type than the 42 miles between
Christina Lake aud Rossland. The main points of rise and fall are as follows: Christina
Lake to Santa Rosa Summit, 4,000 feet; Santa Rosa Summit to Sheep Creek, 3,050 feet; Sheep
Creek to Sophia Mountain Summit, 2,400 feet; Sophia Mountain Summit to Rossland, 1,243
feet.
No grades over 8 per cent, are used and the average width is 16 feet. Three bridges were
erected on this section—i.e., an overhead crossing of steel and concrete over the Canadian
Pacific Railway tracks near Christina Lake, a 60-foot Howe truss over Sheep Creek, and a
115-foot trestle over Velvet Creek, which supplies the Velvet Mine.
Surveys and Reconnaissance.—An instrumental survey was made of the first 24 miles out
of Hope via the Nicoluni River, etc., and plan prepared according to our standard for first-
class highways. A clinometer survey was also made from the 12-Mile point on the highway
west of Princeton to Roche River, to determine the most feasible and economical route, using
our maximum grades aud curvatures, for the Trans-Provincial Highway.
A reconnaissance was also made from Princeton to Hope. The route taken was via the
Allison Pass.    No unsurmountable difficulties were encountered.
Miscellaneous.—Speaking in general, I think it must be admitted that fair value has been
received for the moneys expended on both maintenance and construction.
I feel quite sure that a great deal of money could be saved if it is possible to educate
the roadmen up to the intelligent use of the latest type of road machinery.
I am again going to point out the advisability, where conditions permit, of having permanent
gangs to look after the different sections and give them enough work to keep them employed
practically all the year round. This, of course, applies only to the more settled districts. The
practice of appointing a foreman for each little piece of road uses up a very large proportion
of our appropriation and the country receives very little actual value.
All of which is respectfully submitted.
W. K. Gwyer,
District Engineer.
REPORT OF ENGINEER, DISTRICT No. 5.
District Engineer's Office,
Court-house, Nelson, B.C., July 10th, 1923.
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 1922-23:—
Roads and Trails, Nelson Electoral District.—No new roads or streets were opened up,
but three stretches of road totalling approximately 1 mile were gravelled, while streets
previously opened up and sidewalks already built were kept in a good state of repair.
Trail Electoral District.—The most important construction-work undertaken was the Nelson-
Ymir Road. About 12 miles out of a total of 17.4 were constructed during the fiscal year, the
excavated quantities for which averaged approximately 10,000 cubic yards per mile, was about
40 per cent, solid rock classification.
This highway when completed will not only prove a -great boon to the industrial life of
the valley through which it extends, but will also form a portion of a direct highway connection
between Nelson and Spokane, in preparation for which the Washington authorities have already
completed their section of the highway to the International Boundary.
On the Canadian side of the line it was necessary to build a 9-mile section in addition
to the 17.4 miles between Nelson and Ymir, and of this 9 miles a section of 6.5 miles was
constructed by day-labour forces under the Trail General Foreman, P. J. Gallagher.
Mr. Gallagher's long association with railroad-construction work, and the experience
gained therefrom, enabled him to construct one of the best portions of highway that have
yet been built in West Kootenay. C 18 Public Works Report  (1922-23).
Since the fiscal year 1919-20 our policy in connection with the heaviest-travelled roads
has been to widen those portions of road on final location from year to year as far as funds
permitted, and then follow this up the following year with gravel surfacing.
Altogether in the year 1922-23 about 10 miles of main road were thus gravelled, and a
continuation of this policy will gradually put the main trunk roads in good condition for
motor traffic, a marked difference being already noticeable when comparison is made with
the condition of the same roads four years ago.
Ordinary maintenance-work was carried out on about 200 miles of road, and approximately
2 miles of roads for settlers were constructed or reconstructed, while trails were cleaned out1
where necessary and when applied for by parties interested in mining.
Rossland Electoral District.—The usual general repair-work was undertaken on 40 miles
of roads, and considerable rock surfacing laid down on the Trail-Rossland and Rossland-
Patterson Roads. An effort was made to keep the Trail-Rossland Road open for traffic during
the winter months, and in spite of a heavy snowfall this was accomplished.
All main trails were opened up and lateral roads, used principally by settlers, were kept
in good repair.
Surfacing operations were also undertaken on 6 miles of the Rossland-Cascade section of
the Trans-Provincial Highway.
Kaslo Electoral District.—As in former years, a large percentage of our district vote was
expended in the Creston Valley between Kuskanook and Erickson, widening and gravelling
those portions of road on permanent location.
The macadamizing of the Creston-Erickson Road was completed practically to Erickson
Station, thus giving the farmers in the Erickson area a very serviceable main highway over
which to haul their produce to the railroad-station and packing-sheds.
In the Kaslo District generally we repaired 213 miles of roads and cleaned out 150 miles
of trails, assistance having been obtained from the Mines Department on 60 miles of trail-
work and 5% miles of road maintenance.
In addition to this, the Department of Mines financed the building of approximately 10
miles of main trail up Cultus Creek towards the Bayonne Summit.
Revelstoke Electoral District.—The principal construction-work undertaken was as
follows:—
Revelstoke West Road: Construction of this road was completed from Mile 22 to Taft,
a distance of 2% miles, while the existing road west of Taft to Craigellachie, a distance of
4.5 miles, was practically rebuilt throughout on an entirely new location, with a maximum
grade of 7 per cent, as against 18 per cent, on the old road. The new location gives a much
better outlet for the settlers in the locality, particularly at the Craigellachie end, where the
heaviest grades on the old road existed.
Revelstoke-Arrowhead Road: About 3.5 miles of standard road were constructed between
Revelstoke and Arrowhead, leaving approximately 7.5 miles still to construct to connect up
the two communities. One mile of this work was along steep side-hill, necessitating the removal
of about 20,000 cubic yards of material with a high percentage of solid rock. This road when
completed will not only give a highway connection between Revelstoke and Arrowhead, but
will also open up several hundred acres of good agricultural land now covered with heavy
cedar timber.
One hundred and eighteen miles of road in the Revelstoke District were maintained and
6 miles wrere gravelled. Out of the district appropriation we constructed 1.5 miles of new
lateral roads and repaired and cleaned out about SO miles of trail, on 51 miles of which we
had assistance from the Department of Mines.
The policy of snow-plough ing the main and lateral roads during the winter months was
continued, and, so far as we can learn, appreciated by the general travelling public, especially
by the ranchers in outlying districts, who now find it much easier to haul to and from Revelstoke in the winter season.
River-bank protection work was undertaken on the Columbia River, Isaac Creek, 7-Mile
Creek, and Illecillewaet River, and on three of these propositions we had the co-operation of
the Canadian Pacific Railway Company, the Dominion Government, and the settlers whose
lands were protected. V •'"'••     '*Jr ■       \>*TJ~.,y-     ■'-?**

Slocan Electoral District.—In the Slocan District 237 miles of roads and 103 miles of trails
received attention during the year, and of the above, assistance was given by the Mines
Department on 11 miles of roads and 13 miles of trail.
River-bank protection in the shape of brush and rock mattress and cribbing was carried
out on Carpenter Creek at New Denver, and Eagle Creek, Edgewood, while extensive repairs
were made on the Sandon Flume.
About 1.5 miles of new roads were built for settlers and 1 mile of new trail up Wilson
Creek from Rosebery on a wagon-road grade.
Bridges.—The following new truss spans were built:—
Revelstoke District: One 60-foot king-truss span with pile approaches over Eagle River,
Mile 20, Revelstoke West Road; one 60-foot king-truss span on concrete abutments over Eagle
River at Mile 22, Revelstoke West Road; One 45-50-foot king-truss span on concrete abutments
over Gorge Creek, Craigellachie, on Revelstoke West Road; one suspension foot-bridge, 180-
foot span, over Eagle River at Bowie.
Slocan District: One 60-foot king-truss span on concrete abutments, with framed trestle
approaches, over Springer Creek at Slocan City; one 60-foot king-truss span with framed
trestle approaches over Deep Creek on Edgewood-Vernon Road.
Trail District:   One 100-foot Howe-truss span on pile piers over Salmon River near Ymir.
Kaslo District: Two 50-foot king-truss spans on pile piers over Goat River Flats near
Creston.
In addition to the above, the following is a record of the general bridge-work undertaken
in Engineering District No. 5: Bridges replaced by culvert and fill, 950 lineal feet; truss spans
examined, trussed, and overhauled, 31; stringer and trestle bridges repaired, 285; stringer and
trestle bridges constructed, 11;  stringer and trestle bridges reconstructed, 11.
Ferries.—No new ferries were installed during the fiscal year 1922-23 and all existing
ferries continued to give efficient service. A double-shift service was put into operation on
the Nelson Ferry in May, 1922, to meet the growing demands of the travelling public.
New Main Highways constructed in District No. 5 during 1922-23.—Trail Electoral District:

REPORT   OF  ENGINEER,  DISTRICT  No.   6.
District Engineer's Office,
Cranbrook, B.C., May. 29th, 1923.
P. Philip, Esq.,
Public Works Engineer, Victoria, B.C.
Sir,—I beg to submit my report for the year 1922-23.
Labour conditions remained about the same as in the previous year and no change was
made in the rate of wages.
The field organization carried on well, foremen on construction showing praiseworthy
interest in their work, as well as the section maintenance-men, whose task is yearly becoming
more important and difficult as the auto traffic increases. Roads.—The Moyie Lake Diversion on the Trans-Provincial Highway was brought to
completion, and, judging by their comments, the motoring public have nothing but praise
for the road and its scenery.
Continuing our programme of improvements on this highway between Moyie and Yahk,
about 6.5 miles of the old road were constructed into modern standard type. On the branch
road to Kingsgate a steep hill was eliminated by a new grade.
At loco two dangerous curves were eliminated by a short diversion.
East of Cranbrook the Trans-Provincial Highway was graded and gravelled for 1%
miles near Wardner, and on the road to Kimberley the 2-mile diversion near Marysville was
gravelled, and a new diversion, occasioned by the works of the Sullivan Mine blocking the
old road, was made into the town of Kimberley.
Between Eager Hill and Fort Steele the grade leading down to Westport was widened
and a guard-rail put on.
The diversion of Coal Creek Road was continued to let traffic past a particularly bad
hill near French Camp, and half a mile more of Bull River South Road was built.
The main highway leading northerly to connect with the Banff-Windermere Road and
on to Golden has now been named the Columbia River Road. A portion of this south of
Wasa, of about 1.3 miles in extent, was built and gravelled this year. Other portions north
of Wasa on the west side of the Kootenay River are in course of construction, and a connecting road a little over a mile in length was built to  Skookumchuck  Station.
On the road leading northerly from Skookumchuck to Findlay Creek quite extensive
improvements were made in the way of eliminating excessive grades and a particularly bad
wet portion.
The roads mentioned in report of last year as being of especial benefit to settlers were
continued in their construction and improvements as funds would permit.
Streets and sidewalks were maintained in all the unincorporated towns of the district,
a notable improvement being made in Golden, where certain buildings were removed which
formerly occupied space on the street allowance and obscured the view to the approach of
Kicking Horse Bridge. At Slaterville some work was done to drain the stagnant water
from beside the main street. A tarvia sidewalk to the Cranbrook Cemetery was commenced
and partly built and a road constructed along the proper right-of-way, the former road being
more or less of a trail across lots and private property. Considerable improvement was made
in West Fernie in the matter of drainage.
Bridges.—Bridges were kept in repair, some of the more extensive jobs being protection
to Horsethief Bridge; replacing of trestle by fill in approach to Kicking Horse Bridge; new
deck to Fort Steele Bridge; rock protection to Fairy Creek Bridge; new deck and floor beams
to Galbraith Bridge; extra chord leaves and new caps to Wardner Bridge; reflooring the
following bridges:   Mission, Marysville, Ryan,  Swansea Large, and Ward's Ranch.
Of bridges reconstructed, the following are some of the important ones: Coal Creek No.
63, Blackberry Upper Bridge, Bugaboo, Carbonate-Spruce Camp, Cherry Creek, Downs, Ferguson, Mcintosh, and two Torrent Slough Bridges.
Bridges constructed include the following: Symond and Levitt, Shanty and Chapman
Bridges.
Contracts were let for the erection of new bridges at Hosmer, Waldo, and Skookumchuck,
all of which are under way.
Quite a lot of minor bridges throughout the district were replaced by culverts and fills.
A few of the more important bridges were whitewashed, and it seems to be the consensus
of opinion that more erf this work should be done and also extended to guard-rails. The whitewash, besides having a preservative effect, brings these objects into great prominence at
night and adds to the safety of travel.
River-bank Protection.—Work was carried on at the following places, mostly in continuation of schemes already laid out and repoTted on: At or near the mouth of St. Mary River;
at North Fernie; at Fairy Creek; at West Fernie, Michel Creek; at Kicking Horse River;
and at Toby Dam near Athalmer.
Ferries.—In ferries, the only new work was the building and installing of a small ferry
to be operated by local settlers at Flagstone, on the Kootenay River. Donald Ferry was
replaced by a larger scow to accommodate the settlers. Deep Creek Bridge on Edgewood-Vernon Road.  14 Geo. 5 Report of Engineer, District No. 7. C 21
In public buildings, the new school at Yahk was completed and the sheds and fencing
at the Public Works headquarters, Cranbrook, were finished to accommodate and house road
equipment.
New road machinery purchased comprised a light delivery Ford truck, two Sawyer-
Massey patrol graders, and one Cletrac tractor.
The Government garage at Cranbrook, installed the previous year, functioned very well
in the economical maintenance and repair of all Government cars and other mechanical
equipment.
A number of plans came in throughout the year for inspection and approval as subdivisions. The majority of these were small parcels, the ones of greater extent being a subdivision at Yahk, and one at Green Bay on Moyie Lake and one on the Elk River, the latter
being a townsite for a proposed pulp-mill.
Of the more important applications to construct works within Crown lands, those for
electric-light poles at Invermere, Kimberley, Elko, and West Fernie and for laying of water-
mains in Kimberley are to be mentioned.
In surveys, a great deal of work was accomplished in choosing the route and making
final location of Columbia River Road, together with the preparation of plans and data for
the purpose of calling for tenders and for carrying on construction in the next fiscal year.
A preliminary survey of the proposed Golden-Leanchoil Road was made. The Assistant
District Engineers accomplished a number of surveys for settlers' and mining roads, as well
as bridge surveys, and the procuring of extra survey data required from time to time for
departmental reports.
It is a pleasure to report the continued efforts and loyalty of all working with me here,
and I wish to thank you and your staff in Victoria for your ever kindly help.
Respectfully submitted.

District Engineer.
REPORT Ol' ENGINEER, DISTRICT No. 7.
District Engineer's Office,
Court-house, Prince Rupert, B.C., August 14th, 1923.
P. Philip, Esq.,
Public Works Engineer, Victoria, B.C.
Sir,—I have the honour to submit my report for the fiscal year 1922-23, covering the Atlin,
Prince Rupert, and Omineca Electoral Districts.
Organization.—The present organization, while working smoothly, is not wholly satisfactory,
chiefly on account of the size of the district and the difficulty of giving close engineering
supervision to all work.
Towards the end of the fiscal year an Assistant District Engineer was appointed to Atlin
District.
The building of new roads, altering old roads to new alignment and grade, and the locating
and constructing of bridges involves considerable engineering-work.
Labour.—Labour was fairly satisfactory, but difficulty was experienced in getting satisfactory work out of settlers close to the construction-work. In some instances it was necessary
to obtain outside help in order to get satisfactory and economical work done.
Weather.—The weather in the spring was not good, but the summer in the Interior was
hot and dry. Little time was lost by bad weather, but difficulties were experienced in the
Interior on account of heat and drought.
Materials.—iMaterials and supplies were fairly easy to obtain and the prices were on the
whole fair.
Roads and Trails.—Roads and trails were fairly easy to maintain, particularly in the
Interior, as the long spell of dry weather made maintenance-work light. Considerable work
was done in the reconstruction of old roads, drainage of roads, and new construction. A large
amount of gravelling, where necessary, of existing roads was also done. C 22 Public Works Report (1922-23).
The roads in the Interior, particularly in the Smithers and Burns Lake Districts, have
now to stand much heavier motor traffic.
The cost of most of the new construction-work was borne by the Highway Loan, 1920.
A preliminary  survey  was  made  to  connect  the  Hazelton-Fort  George  Project  between
Endako and Burns Lake, and a satisfactory line was obtained.
A considerable amount of work had to be done in the Stewart Division of the Atlin District
on account of the mining activity.    Mining roads and trails were well maintained.
The district vote of the three districts was used chiefly on maintenance and repairs, and
the following new construction was done under the " Highway Loan Act, 1920 " :—

River-protection.—Work had to be done on the Bear River near Stewart, also on the
Necleetsconnay River and Bella Coola River. The Necleetsconnay River broke through its
banks, washed out the bridge, and did serious damage to wagon-road and private property.
Bridges.—A large amount of work was done on bridges, chiefly on repairs. Seventy-eight
bridges were repaired or reconstructed and eight new bridges built.
Ferries.—All ferries were well maintained and the new steel ferry, put in operation at
Francois Lake, proved satisfactory. Towards the end of the year a new 10-ton ferry was
authorized for the Skeena River at Hazelton.
Wharves.—Minor repairs were done on the Bella Coola Wharf and the Prince Rupert
Wharf.
General.—The work during the year was satisfactory;  the outside  and the  inside staff
co-operated in getting the best possible results for the money expended.    Relations with all
other departments of the Government, as well as relations with Department of the Dominion
Government, with which this office comes in touch, were good.
Respectfully submitted.

REPORT OF ENGINEER, DISTRICT No. 8.
District Engineer's Office,
South Fort George, B.C., July 10th, 1923.
P. Philip, Esq.,
Public Works Engineer, Victoria, B.C.
Sir,—I have the honour to submit my annual report for the fiscal year ending March 31st,
1923.
The excellent weather conditions, combined with the energetic way in which the whole
of the work was carried out, made it a banner year for both construction of new roads and
general maintenance throughout the district.
Main Roads.—A large mileage of unimproved main roads was widened out. and graded,
with the result that now practically all roads leading to the various centres of population
can be satisfactorily maintained with the use of a road-drag at very little cost.
The surfacing of Peden's Hill, on the Fort George-Hazelton Road near Prince George,
a much-needed improvement, was completed, and at various points along the road permanent
culverts and fills were installed where the original construction had provided the undesirable
pole bridge.
The Cariboo Main Road (Fort George-Woodpecker) was partly regraded and several short
uncompleted sections were linked up near Stone Creek, the work being done by contract.
Other improvements were carried out in the way of widening side-hill cuts and filling low
swampy stretches. The long hill at the commencement of this road was surfaced with gravel
after the necessary widening and levelling had been done.
The whole road south of Prince George as far as Woodpecker is now in good shape for
auto travel and is being used to a great extent by local residents. The north end of the road
leading to Summit Lake was subject to maintenance-work only.
The road from Vanderhoof to Stuart Lake was much improved by grading operations
carried out on the first 12 miles, other minor but beneficial work having been done along its
entire length.
In the Peace River District the Grande Prairie Road received prime attention, and with
another season's work the whole of the road in British Columbia will be completely graded,
to the great benefit of Pouce Coupe and adjacent country.
Land Settlement Roads.—The continued activity in the several areas in the district called
for the opening-up of more new roads, as well as improvements to those already in use. Fully
graded roads are being constructed where possible, so as to reduce future maintenance to the
minimum.
Side-roads.—In view of the large mileage of unimproved side-roads, an effort has been
made to widen out and grade as much as possible of the more Important of these roads,
which will gradually give the settler an outlet consistent with the development of his property.
During the winter gravel was hauled on the roads immediately adjacent to Vanderhoof,
which satisfied a most urgent requirement of this thriving little town. The experiment proved
a success, as the large loads hauled fully compensated for the little extra time taken to spread
and crown up the roads in the spring. Government teams were kept busy and unemployment
was relieved.
Bridge-icork.—Little or no damage was occasioned by spring freshets, and the majority
of work carried out consisted of the replacement of or repairs to small structures caused by
mechanical wear or decay.
The replacement of short bridges by culvert and fill was again given full consideration,
a large number of changes having been made during the year.
A new bridge was erected over the Willow River near the town of Willow River, being
made up of one 130-foot Howe truss and one 60-foot king truss, with pile piers and approaches.
The work was carried out by day-labour, and with fine timber supplied from the Coast,
coupled with excellent workmanship, one of the best structures has been the result. The bridge
is one of the important connecting-links in the construction of the main road east of Prince
George, along the Grand Trunk Railway.
The usual  maintenance on existing large bridges was thoroughly carried out.
Ferries.—A new ferry was constructed for operation on the Peace River near Taylor Flats,
having  been  designed  to  operate  with  a  sunken   cable  by  gas-engine  on   scow.    Difficulties C 24 Public Works Report  (1922-23).
peculiar to the Peace River prevented the successful operation at the outset, but with minor
changes satisfactory service is expected.
New pontoons were installed at the Stuart River Ferry, Fort St. James.
General.—With the exception of contract-work, under the heading of " Federal Aid," all
work was carried out by a plentiful supply of local labour, and returned men were well taken
care of where possible.
With a keenly interested staff, together with the co-operation of other departments, the
work has progressed smoothly and steadily, which, coupled with continued support from headquarters, has done much to provide efficient service.
All of which is respectfully submitted.
Arthur Dixon,
  District Engineer.
REPORT OF ENGINEER, DISTRICT No. 9.
District Engineer's Office,
150-Mile House, B.C., June 16th, 1923.
P. Philip, Esq.,
Public Works Engineer, Victoria, B.C.
Sir,—I have the honour to submit my report for the fiscal year 1922-23.
Labour.—Conditions were good during the summer, but many men were unemployed during
the fall and winter; certain works were undertaken to relieve these conditions.
Weather.—The weather was exceptionally dry throughout the year and the snowfall on
the lower elevations remarkably light. Such conditions permitted the Cariboo Main Road to
be open for auto traffic practically'all the winter.
Roads and Trails.—Lillooet: About 2% miles of road and 7 miles of trail were constructed
and 750 miles of roads and 74 miles of trails were repaired and maintained.
Cariboo : About 33 miles of road and 5V4 miles of trail were constructed and 676 miles
of roads and 87 miles of trails were repaired and maintained.
Surveys.—Surveys were made for proposed roads at Bridge River Canyon, Canim Lake,
Moon's, Roe Lake, Harpers Camp-Quesnel Lake, Cedar Creek, Keithley, Hydraulic, Marguerite,
and Lower Beaver Valley, a total of 59 miles.
Construction and reconstruction were undertaken on the following roads and trails:
Moon's Road, Jones-Dickey Road, Canim Lake Trail, Harpers Camp Road, Quesnel-Little Lake
Road, Soda Creek-Chimney Creek Road, Springhouse-Williams Lake Road, Sisters Creek-
Dragon Lake Road, Chilcotin Road, Cariboo Road at Red Bluff Hill and north of Quesnel,
Keithley Road, Keithley-Barkerville Trail, and Quesnel Dam-Cedar Creek Trail.
Particular attention was given to drainage and gravelling in maintenance-work and 2,000
feet of metal culvert were laid. This type of culvert is giving satisfaction, but the majority
of steel culverts freeze solid during the winter months and remain frozen when most wanted
during the time the snow-water is troublesome. At other times their freedom from breakage
and better drainage compensate for the defect of freezing.
Ferries.—The ferries (10) were maintained and operated satisfactorily. The records of
the ferry at Quesnel show that 500 autos, 2,300 horse-drawn vehicles, 22,500 passengers, and
500 tons of freight were carried during the 8y2 months operated; during the remaining 3%
months the crossing was on the ice and no records were kept. For comparison following are
the records of the next ferry in importance: 33 autos, 611 horse-drawn vehicles, 2,315 passengers,
and 190 tons of freight carried during iy.2 months' operating.
Bridges.—Six new bridges were constructed, thirteen were reconstructed, and ninety were
substantially repaired. The most important work on bridges was carried out at Chilcotin
Suspension, 87-foot Howe truss and trestle approach at east end; Vedan, 76-foot queen truss;
Ward's Ferry, two 80-foot Howe trusses (incomplete at end of year) ; Antler Creek, 40-foot
king truss; Mackay's, 60-foot king truss and trestle; completion of" Spanish Bridge and the
commencement of Quesnel Dam Bridge, consisting of six 60-foot king trusses and trestle
approaches, all built upon the foundations of the old dam. All bridge-work was satisfactorily
undertaken by day-labour.
General.—Some of the highway-construction work was again done by contract and in a
very satisfactory manner, although in all cases the lowest tender had been accepted.  Quesnel Dam Bridge,  Cariboo District.    July 5th, 1923. k

The closing of roads under the " Highway Act, 1921," was put into operation during the
spring thaw, and on the whole was effective, saving the roads from considerable damage.
Sign-posts have been erected at all branch roads throughout the district.
Respectfully submitted.

REPORT   OF   SUPERVISING   ARCHITECT.
Department of Public Works,
Victoria, B.C., August 8th, 1923.
P. Philip, Esq.,
Public Works Engineer, Victoria, B.C.
Sir,—I have the honour to submit herewith the annual report of the Architectural Branch
for the fiscal year ending March 31st, 1923.
The year has been one of continued activity in the office. The volume of work increased,
so that it was necessary to retain the services of two architectural assistants beyond our ordinary
staff for the major part of the year to cope with the work and also the necessary supervision
of the work in progress.
Parliament Buildings.—Beyond, the general upkeep and repairs to this building we have
continued with systematic renovating and decorating, which will make a decided improvement
to its appearance when completed.
The rewiring of the Main Building and the Museum has been completed and only the
Printing Department remains to be done. Owing to the accumulation of records in the different
departments we have utilized the old boiler-room by making fire-proof vaults for them. A
reduction of insurance rates has been granted by the provision of automatic fire-doors at various
positions between the old and new buildings.
The grounds have been efficiently maintained under the direction of our Head Gardener.
I wish to bring to your attention the continued co-operation aiid support of the various
tradesmen of the Department, who not only maintain these buildings in repair, but those of
the Normal School, Court-house, Government House, Saanich Mental Hospital, and Labour
Bureaus.
Government House.—Sundry additions and the general maintenance and upkeep of these
buildings and grounds have been carried out during the year. Plans have been prepared for
a house for the Secretary to His Honour the Lieutenant-Governor, but work has not yet been
started.
Normal School.—Permanent roadways constructed and improvements to the grounds carried
out during the year have decidedly improved the appearance of the buildings. To complete
the frontage there yet remains to be done the western section of the grounds, and I would
suggest that money be appropriated at an early date for the completion "of this work. The
upkeep and repair of these buildings have also been undertaken.
Labour Bureaus.—Alterations to the Labour Bureaus at Vancouver and Victoria have been
carried out during the year to permit of the more efficient discharge of the work In these offices.
Court-houses generally.—The various Court-houses throughout the Province have been kept
in repair and gundry alterations and improvements made. The Court-house at Vancouver has
been renovated and redecorated in the hallways, rotunda, and various offices, which greatly
improved the appearance of the building. Nelson Court-house has received sundry changes
and renovations, required by the reorganization in the Assessor's and Collector's offices.
Mental Hospitals.—The upkeep and maintenance of these buildings have been supervised;
the work having been carried out by the institution's own tradesmen and patients. At New
Westminster improvements were made on sundry wards and a new X-ray section provided.
At Essondale, besides the maintenance and upkeep, a residence was erected for the Steward,
and plans prepared and work commenced on another house for an official, whilst additional
attendants' cottages were erected.
In connection with the farm, a piggery, a root-house, an addition to the calf-barn, and
sundry other structures were erected.
Boys' Industrial School.—The grading to the grounds, terracing, and stone retaining-walls
were completed under the direction of the District Engineer  at New Westminster.    A new C 26 Public Works Report  (1922-23).
horse-barn, cow-barn, silos, piggery, and implement-shed were erected under contract. The
Superintendent erected numerous smaller structures with the help of the boys, under our
direction.
This institution is now working out as we visualized it, and in the course of a few more
years, when lawns are made and trees and shrubbery have been planted, it wrill have quite
a satisfactory appearance.
Tranquille Sanatorium.—Besides the general upkeep and maintenance of the buildings,
a large workshop, two cottages, and two officials' residences have been erected and a start
made on a new school-house and boarding-house for the farm. Our Head Gardener visited this
institution along with myself, and recommended certain improvements to the grounds which
are being carried out.
Oakalla Prison Farm, etc.—Various repairs and improvements have been made to this
building and sundry lock-ups throughout the Province.
Girls' Industrial School.—A new piggery was erected at this institution and the exterior
of the building repainted, besides the general repairs and maintenance to same.
Deaf, Dumb, and Blind School.—The cottages attached to this institution and the exterior
of the institution itself have been repainted, also small minor changes and repairs made. The
roads around the institution have been improved under the direction of Mr. Wylie.
A Fumigation Station was erected at Vancouver for the Agricultural Department.
New Buildings.
Prince Rupert Court-house.—This building has been completed and occupied during the
year. It is a decided improvement and acquisition to the city and enables the Government
business to be carried out much more economically than previously.
Acute Building, Essondale.—This building was commenced during the year and the concrete framework completed. The inclement weather during the winter handicapped the contractors to a certain degree; otherwise it was hoped to have the building roofed in.
Preliminary estimates and reports have been considered for the new power plant at
Essondale, which is to be erected during the forthcoming year.
Hospitals.—Plans were prepared for a hospital at Quesnel and Williams Lake. We have
also assisted various Hospital Boards by giving them information and assistance in their
problems, and inspected plans of hospitals submitted by outside architects, to which structures
the Government has given grants.
Schools.—The following schools were erected by the Branch during the year: One-room
schools, 7; twTo-room schools, 6; eight-room schools, 1; one-room additions, 1; two-room additions,
2; three-room additions, 1; four-room additions, 2.
In addition to sundry minor repairs and alterations to existing schools, we have provided
a considerable number of plans and specifications of our standard schools to municipalities
and unorganized districts. Plans submitted by outside architects for schools, to which the
Government has given grants, have been examined, criticized where necessary, and approved
before the grant was given by the Education Department.
Williams L,ake Court-house.—A small Court-house wTas erected at Williams Lake during
the year.
Vancouver Normal School.—Sundry alterations and repairs and redecorations to this
building were carried out.
Old Men's Home, Kamloops.—Several changes to give more accommodation and other
improvements and general repairs were made to this institution.
Generally.—There has been an upward trend in the prices of materials and labour during
the year, with no appearance of any marked decline in them, the cause, I believe, being
attributable to the large boom in the Pacific States.
In conclusion, I wish to express my thanks to you, sir, and the Deputy Minister, for your
co-operation and interest in our work, and also to thank the members of the staff for the
loyal support and assistance they have given me during this period.
Attached hereto are photographs of several of the more important works executed during
the year.
This report is respectfully submitted.

REPORT OF CHIEF INSPECTOR OF MACHINERY.
New AA'estminster, B.C., April 1st, 1923.
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-first Annual Report of the operation of the steam-boilers and
machinery inspection service for the year ending March 31st, 1923.
The personnel of the service at present consists of the Chief Inspector, twelve District
Inspectors, one clerk, one stenographer and filing and record clerk, and three stenographers,
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 Arictoria for District B; one
Inspector in Nelson for District C; three Inspectors and one stenographer and typist in Van-
couver for District D; and one Inspector in Vernon for District B.
No changes of staff have taken place during the year, but I regret to report that Air.
Bath, one of the Inspectors in the Vancouver - District, has been absent from duty on leave
of absence on account of illness since June 6th, and is not yet able to report for duty.
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:—

Amendments to designs examined, calculated, and reported on   4
Fees collected for designs           !p859
Fees collected for registration of boilers      $1,044
Fees collected for copies of Act   §2
Fines for infraction of the Act   $10
Number of miles travelled by Chief Inspector        2,102
I am pleased to report that there have been no boiler-explosions during the year and no
serious accidents to boilers or machinery. There have been three accidents to persons, one
of vvhich was fatal.
In the case of the fatal accident, Sergeant Harvey, of the Royal North West Mounted
Police, reported to our Air. Davidson, of Arernon, that about a month or six weeks prior to
the report an accident had occurred in the Penticton Steam Laundry, resulting in a man being
killed. Mr. Davidson went over to Penticton and found that a rancher named Air. Bell had
asked the engineer's permission to use a steam-hose to scald out a cask. The engineer referred
him to the owner, who gave permission after the laundry closed. Mr. Bell had filled the cask
half-full of water, and while it was lying on its side he put the steam-nozzle through a bung-
hole and turned on the steam. The end of the cask was blown out and Air. Bell was scalded
to such an extent that he died in the hospital shortly afterwards.
Under " Summary of Defects" will be noted that five safety-valves were found to be
inoperative, seven overloaded, and nine defective an construction. One boiler was being operated without a steam-pressure gauge.; twenty-one pressure-gauges were found inoperative and 14 Geo. 5 Chief Inspector of Machinery. C 141
295 defective; thirty-five boilers were found with cracks in the plates; twenty-one with defective
feed-water arrangement and fifteen with defective water-gauges; and four boilers were found
to be operating without fusible plugs. The remaining defects are about on an average with
former years.
The number of new boilers built for British Columbia was seventy, as compared with
fifty-nine for the previous year. Fifty-four of these were built in British Columbia, three
built under inspection in Eastern Canada, three built in Eastern Canada not under inspection,
and six built in the United States. Of these new boilers, sixty-nine were put into operation
during the year, the other one being held in stock.
The number of second-hand boilers imported was nineteen—from Eastern Canada fifteen and
from the United States four.
Boilers inspected for the first time during the year, 103; eighteen were taken out of service,
being condemned as unfit for further use.
The total number of boilers now on our books is 6,2S0. Of these, 3,099 were inspected
internally and externally, six internally only, and 113 externally only. Inspection of boilers
under steam, 881.
The number of plates tested during the year was 257, as compared with 212 for the previous
year. Four plates were rejected as unfit for use in boiler-construction, as compared with three
of the previous year.
In addition to the usual work of this office, we have during the year undertaken extra
work as follows: Supervised the repairs to the Ladner-Woodward, Alission-Matsqui, and
Agassiz-Rosedale Ferries; supervised repairs to electric turning-gear of the Eburne Bridge;
and the supervision of repairs in connection with the operation of steam plants in Government
Buildings.    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 AVorkmen's
Compensation Board.
In conclusion, I desire to thank you for your active interest in support of this office, and
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.

John Peck, Esq.,
Chief Inspector of Machinery, Nen: Westminster, B.C.
Sir,—I have the honour to submit herewith my report for the year ending March 31st, 1923.
During the year I have been occupied with the routine work of the head office; engineers'
examinations; examining and calculating designs for boilers and equipment; supervising repairs
to ferries and bridge-swinging gears; examining and testing spark-arresters for the Forestry
Department; calculating pressure-vessels for the Workmen's Compensation Board; and work
in connection with the steam plants in public buildings.
The work being done for other departments is increasing yearly. At least 30 per cent, of
my time is now devoted to work for other departments.
The designs calculated were more numerous than last year. Fifteen designs for pressure-
vessels were calculated under the AArorkmen's Compensation Board Regulations.
Three designs were examined and tests made of spark-arresters for the Forestry Department.   A trip was also made to Cowichan Lake to examine spark-arresters.
Considerable work was done in connection with repairs to the ferries at Ladner, Mission,
and Rosedale, and also witli regard to the electric swinging-gear at Eburne Bridge.
Examinations for engineers' certificates were held during the first week in each month
and applicants for special certificates were examined at various times.
The fees noted as collected in the tabulated statement were first inspection fees for new
boilers.
Trusting this report meets with your approval,
I have, etc.,

Sir,—I have the honour to submit my report for the year ending March 31st, 1923.
I am pleased to say that all the plants that were operated in this district were inspected
during the year.
Five plants were burnt down, with only slight damages done to the boilers, but one other
plant was practically ruined.
In one plant the working-pressure had to be reduced on account of the engine being too
light.

SlB>—I have the honour to submit to you my report for the year ending March 31st, 1923.
One boiler was taken out of service, and while a reduction in pressure was made in eleven,
the plants were found to be in a satisfactory condition generally.
One accident occurred to a boiler and serious results were narrowly averted. The fusible
plug gave out on boiler No. 20765-B.C, due, no doubt, to the water getting low in the boiler.
The engineer opened up the injector to put more water into the boiler and then left the boiler-
room to call the foreman.
At one time three men were around the boiler before the fire was drawn, and all this time
there was no signs of water showing in the glass. On inspection it was found that the furnace-
crown was down quite a bit and sixteen stays had to be renewed. Had the water fallen a little
lower in the boiler a disastrous explosion would have occurred.
Inspections were made for the Workmen's Compensation Board, and it appears to me the
operators are now educated up to the advantages of accident-prevention as far as possible.
Trusting this report meets with your approval,

Senior Inspector's Report, District B.
Victoria, B.C., April 1st, 1923.
John Peck, Esq.,
Chief Inspector of Machinery, New Westminster, B.C.
Sir,—I have the honour to lay before you my report for work done in this district during
the past twelve months.
Examinations for the various grades of engineers' certificates have been held monthly in
Victoria, tri-monthly at Nanaimo, and as opportunity occurred at Ocean Falls, Namu, Prince
Rupert, Mill Bay, Terrace, Prince George; Fort Fraser, Wistaria, Carnaby, Hutton, Penny,
Alberni, Ahousat, and Anyox.
The Inspectors of this district examined 174 candidates for various grades of engineers'
certificates, of whom 110 passed and sixty-four failed. Sundry candidates made application
for examination at the outlying points directly to the Examiners instead of through the Chief
Inspector, and circumstances caused us to accept same in some cases. Thirty-five dollars in
fees were received from that source.
The Inspectors succeeded in visiting all parts of this far-flung district, inspecting and
testing the boilers and engines, and also making surveys of machinery for the safety of
employees on behalf of the AVorkmen's Compensation Board. In so doing over 17,000 miles
were travelled and a total of 1,055 steam plants were inspected and tested hydrostatically.
Details of defects are given separately by the Inspectors concerned.
I personally made 131 inspections, totalling 8,181 horse-power, finding ninety defects,
thirteen of which were dangerous; my mileage being 2,380 miles. Total fees collected by this
office, $11,059.54.
I also made twenty-eight surveys of industrial concerns on behalf of the AA'orkmen' Compensation Board for the protection of the employees, and had 145 dangerous places protected
or the dangerous parts removed. Fortunately progress is continually being made towards
safeguarding workmen, mills, or other industrial concerns, and I think it is reducing the
number of accidents and consequent claims for compensation. I am pleased to note a revival
of the general industries, notably the logging, sawmills, and shingle-mills, which are quite
brisk. Coal-mining plants also seem to be more continuously at work than was the case in
the earlier part of our financial year.
No very serious accidents have occurred or others of sufficient import of which to make
special mention.
Quite a number of steam-plant owners are still delinquent in their duty to register their
boilers as required by our amended Act, but I am gradually succeeding in getting in touch with
them and so having their boilers duly registered.
The new regulations as a whole have worked satisfactorily, notwithstanding the fact that
the amendment regarding registration of boilers required considerable explanation to those
who have long been in possession of steam plants and who imagined that as their boilers
already had official numbers these were consequently registered. AA'ith this difficulty explained,
registration of boilers will, I believe, in future aid in checking the frequently unreported sale
or transfer of steam plants to new owners, and thus enable us to keep better track on boiler
movements.    This particularly applies to logging-donkeys and small sawmills.
In conclusion, I would thank my colleagues for the able assistance and smooth and
harmonious working of this district, also for the guidance from yourself, in the shape of
rulings and circular letters.
Trusting this report will meet with your approbation,
I have, etc.,
S. Baxter,
Senior Inspector, District B.

John Peck, Esq.,
Chief Inspector of Machinery, New Westminster, B.C.
Sir,—I have the honour to submit my report for the year ending March 31st, 1923.
During the year I have inspected steam plants on Vancouver Island, Prince Rupert, Anyox,
Stewart,  and various points along the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway,  and have also done a
considerable amount of inspecting for the Workmen's Compensation Board.
I found most of the plants in good condition and well guarded, but noticed frequently that
the workmen had a tendency to remove the guards for repairs, etc., and omit to replace them.
I  append herewith  a  summary  of work  completed,  which  I  trust will  meet with  your
approval.
I have, etc.,

John Peck, Esq.,
Chief Inspector of Machinery, New Westminster, B.C.
Sir,—I have the honour to submit to you my report for the year ending March 31st, 1923,
and I trust it will meet with your approval.
The year's work has not differed in any important way from previous years. My work
has taken me from Rivers Inlet north to Prince Rupert, to the Queen Charlotte Islands, and to
most of the plants on Vancouver Island. In the main most of the plants are being well looked
after. Each year sees a step forward in the installation and operation of the more modern
steam plants. In some instances the introduction of a combustion-air pre-heating apparatus
has been gone into.    Good results would no doubt be derived from such an introduction.
The past has been a busy year and there is every indication of increased industrial activities
in the future.   Alost of the plants in our district are now in operation.
1 have, etc.,
John Clark,
Inspector, District B.
Remarks.
During the past year I conducted engineers' examinations in Swanson Bay, Ocean Falls,
Nanaimo, Cumberland, Port Alberni, and assisted with such in Victoria.

Sir,—I have the honour to submit my report for the year ending March 31st, 1923.
Quite a number of plants in this district were closed down during the whole of the year
and no new boilers were installed at the sawmills or mines.    Alost of the old boilers that had
been lying idle for a number of years were bought up during the years 1917 and 1918,  and
the remainder of these boilers are practically useless for power purposes.
Apart from the usual boiler defects caused by scale, etc., nothing of importance occurred
during the year.

Senior Inspector's Report, District D.
Vancouver, B.C., April 1st, 1923.
John Peck, Esq.,
Chief Inspector of Machinery, New Westminster, B.C.
Sir,—I am enclosing with this my annual report for the period from April 1st, 1922, to
March 31st, 1923.
For ten months of this time we have been one Inspector short in this office, Mr. Bath being
on leave of absonce on account of illness. This has made the work of the balance of Inspectors
much harder than usual, trying to keep the inspections up without inconvenience to the public.
There has not been anything out of the ordinary happen in this district during the year.
The steam plants, with very few exceptions, have been in operation and the coming year
promises to see a number of new plants installed. The change that was made in the regulations requiring the first inspection fee on all new
boilers to be paid into head office makes a lot of the work non-productive of revenue credited
to this district, as over 90 per cent, of the boilers manufactured in British Columbia are
turned out by the shops in A7ancouver, which have to be visited periodically and inspected
and tested, taking up much more time than at subsequent inspections, and for which no return
is shown on our cash turned in from this office.
On the other hand, the amounts that we earn in this manner are credited in cash returns
to head office, which has nothing whatever to do with the inspections made here so far as
time is concerned, and the justice of which we cannot discern from our standpoint.
However, as this is in the " Inspection Act" we are carrying it out, and I am simply
mentioning the fact to show that our cash returns would have been larger if this change had
not been made.
I have, etc.,
George O. AIadigan,
Senior Inspector, District D.
Remarks. .
During the year there have been two prosecutions in this district. A Japanese was fined
$100 and costs for operating a boiler without an engineer's certificate, and engineer at Champion
& White's hoist wilfully damaged the boiler he was in charge of, and was let off with suspended
sentence, provided his certificate was cancelled upon investigation.
Attended inquest on two occasions at morgue for Compensation Board and made twenty-
eight inspections and reports for the Board.
Inspected thirty acetylene-gas containers for Compensation Board, also inspected and tested
hot-water tank for the Board under construction.
Inspected and made a report on safety of smoke-stack at A7ancouver General Hospital.
Balance of time was in office 'on records, correspondence, arranging work for Inspectors, and
collecting fees.

Vancouver, B.C., April 1st, 1923.
John Peck, Esq.,
Chief Inspector of Machinery, New Westminster, B.C.
Sir,—I have the honour to sumbit my report for 1922 and 1923.
AVith the exception of an accident to a 72-inch by 18-foot boiler, nothing worth special
mention has come to my notice.
This boiler was allowed to stand full of water during the severe weather of December, 1922.
As a result the water froze and fractured the forward shell course along its entire length
through the line stop-valve and safety-valve, which openings were reinforced by heavy cast-iron
nozzles. The repairs necessarily required a complete new shell, with only tubes (shortened
four inches), heads, and braces salvaged.
The interesting question arises here as to why fracture occurred along the line of reinforced
openings rather than at the longitudinal seam. Also whether the stress which caused failure
was, and only, hydrostatic. *
Your assistance and helpful co-operation throughout the year has been appreciated.
I have, etc.,
F. Biggam,
Inspector, District D.

John Peck, Esq.,
Chief Inspector of Machinery, New Westminster, B.C.
Sir,—I submit herewith my annual report for the year ending March 31st, 1923.
An inspection trip through the logging camps occupied a considerable portion of my time
during this year and added largely to the number of defects observed.    Otherwise my work
in the Arancouver District yielded no interesting matter for observation.
Candidates presenting themselves for examination for engineers' certificates, so far as I
was able to judge, were of a good class.
AVith thanks for the generous support 1 have received from you during the past year,
I have, etc.,

John Peck, Esq.,
Chief Inspector of Machinery, New Westminster, B.C.
Sir,—I have the honour to submit my report for the year ending AIarch 31st, 1923.
During the year there was one fatal accident in a steam plant in Penticton and four
accidents to a steam-engine at Merritt.
I am pleased to say that the fatal accident in Penticton was in no way due to structural
weakness of the boiler or anything attached thereto.
You are already acquainted with the circumstances, in which a rancher named Bell,
desiring to scald out a barrel, after being refused the use of the steam-hose by the engineer 14 Geo. 5
Chief Inspector of Machinery.
e 165
for this purpose,  after hours obtained the permission of the owner,  and whilst  so engaged
the barrel burst, scalding him so severely that he died shortly after from the effects.
The accidents to the engine at AIerritt you are also acquainted with from my reports to
you.
These were all probably due to shock received in two previous accidents. The owners are
now replacing the most highly stressed parts by new parts of stronger material.
During August and September I inspected boilers in the Peace River, going as far as 46
miles west of Hudson Hope.
There were sixteen boilers in use in the country and only two of them were found defective;
of these two, one was of old design and overloaded. The people of the country appeared to
welcome inspection.
I also examined a number of candidates for engineers' certificates whilst in that part of
the country. These were examined provisionally subject to their applications being accepted
by your office.   Some of these have not yet been accepted by you.
On account of the time taken up by this Peace River trip I was unable to inspect in the
Cariboo and Chilcotin Districts, but this work will be attended to in the coming year.
Besides the work of boiler inspection, .examinations were held in Kamloops, Revelstoke,
Golden, AIerritt, and Vernon, and the usual Workmen's Compensation Board inspections were
made in the intervals between boiler inspections.
Trusting that this report will meet with your approval,
I have, etc.,
Jas. DAVlnSON,
Inspector, District E.

REPORT OF INSPECTOR OF ELECTRICAL ENERGY.
August 31st,  1923.
./. 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 ending AIarch 31st, 1923:—
Considerable attention has been devoted during the year to the revision of the regulations
of the office governing interior wiring installations. With the general improvement which has
taken place in the last few years in the standard of electrical work in the outlying parts of
the Province, it is now considered that regulations can be introduced which will be more
general in their application than hitherto, and that the time has arrived when, in the interests
of accident-xirevention and safeguarding against fire, certain minimum standards should be
worked to in rural districts and small towns, as well as in the larger cities. One factor bearing
on this has been the greatly increased use of electricity for domestic purposes following on
the large number of electrical appliances now on the market, and in order to make the use
of these reasonably safe certain new regulations have been found necessary. AVhile fires of
electrical origin have not been numerous, it has been considered that with the growing attention
to the matter of reduction of fire hazards generally, the possibility of fires from electrical
causes should be reduced to a minimum.
Interior AViring Regulations.
The following are the principal features of the changes which have been made to these
regulations :—
Conduit Wiring.—An endeavour has been made to specify in more detail than hitherto
the types of buildings in which this class of wiring should be adopted, and our rules now
give seventeen different classes of work or types of buildings in which the wiring must be
enclosed in steel conduit. Some difficulty has been experienced with regard to small frame
store buildings in the smaller towns, but a practice has now been adopted with regard to these
which, while not unduly increasing the expense of such installations, will give a considerably
increased measure of safety both from accident and fire. The advantage of the regulation
which has been adopted in this respect will become increasingly apparent as the business area
in the small towns is built up.
In the recent construction of schools, hospitals, hotels, etc., it has been found advisable
to call for a higher standard of electrical wiring, and with the exception of small schools in
rural districts the conduit system of wiring is now provided.
Fittings.—The use of non-standard materials has been greatly reduced, due to a more
general recognition of the standard approved makes of switches, insulators, condulets, fuses, etc.
Cabinet and Cut-out Boxes, etc.—As used at present, these are principally turned out
by the larger manufacturers in Eastern Canada and by Arancouver manufacturers, and are
generally in accordance with approved specifications. A number of boxes, however, are still
made by smaller firms throughout the Province who are not accustomed to manufactures for
electrical purposes, and it is recognized that further attention to this matter is required. It
is proposed to provide as many of these manufacturers as can be traced with an approved
detailed construction specification.
Loading of Circuits.—There is a tendency for many users of electrical appiiances to.connect
these to lighting circuits which are unsuited for supplying them, resulting in the carrying
capacity of fuses, switches, and wires being exceeded. An endeavour has been made in the
rules to counteract this, and also to encourage the practice of providing in all new wiring for
an adequate number of circuits to take care of the load taken by these appliances. AVith the
increasing desire for higher intensities of illumination, there is also a tendency to overload
the circuits by the use of larger-capacity lamps. Endeavours have been made to anticipate
this by calling for the lighting circuits to be so laid out and installed as will provide for a
certain wattage, depending upon the extent of the areas to be illuminated. 14 Geo. 5 Inspector of Electrical Energy. C 179
Sockets and Receptacles.—It has been felt that facilities for the use of electrical appliances
should be made in all installations by the provision of sockets and receptacles additional to
those required for lighting purposes, and this practice has been encouraged as one which will
conduce to a safer use of these appliances.
Power Wiring.—There appears to be an increasing demand, for motors of the larger sizes
to be operated at higher voltages. This has necessitated certain changes in the requirements
for the wiring for 2,200-volt motors. There is also a tendency for 550 volts to be used to a
greater extent than hitherto for general factory purposes, resulting in the tendency to use
440-volt equipment for the 550-volt work. In some cases equipment designed for the lower
voltage has been considered as satisfactory for the higher and approval has been given. As
the use of these higher voltages makes for economy in cables, endeavours are being made,
as far as practicable, to make such changes' in our regulations as will permit of such lower
costs in cable and wiring without reducing the standards of safety. The use of protected type
or externally operated switch-boxes for power purposes is now practically universal throughout the Province, and the enclosing of fuses is now standard practice. It is felt that in the
larger capacities the time is now approaching when ordinary type fuses should be replaced
by oil circuit-breakers. This is not compulsory so far, but many of the more important power-
installations are now being so installed.
Power-house Rules.
These rules have now been put in final form. Their scope extends to all electrical equipment in power-houses and sub-stations, including those which may be installed in the larger
factories and where qualified persons are in attendance. The rules are divided into nine main
sections, as follows :—
Section 1. Protective arrangement of power-houses and sub-station buildings.
Section 2. Protective arrangements of equipment.
Section 3. Rotating equipment.
Section 4. Transformers, resistance devices, ground detectors, etc.
Section 5. Conductors.
Section 6. Circuit-breakers, switches, fuses, and controllers, etc.
Section 7. Switchboards.
Section 8. Lightning-arresters.
Section 9. Transmission-line telephone protection.
There are forty-nine rules, each section comprising separate rules dealing with subdivision
of the main sections.   For instance, section 6 is subdivided as follows:—
Rule 32. Circuit-breakers and switches.
Rule 33. Disconnectors.
Rule 34. Accidental closing.
Rule 35. AArhere switches are required.
Rule 36. Where fuses or automatic circuit-breakers are required.
Rule 37. Fuse-protection.
Rule 38. Arcing or suddenly moving parts.
Rule 39. Accessible and indicating.
The general form of the rules has been so drawn that the requirements of the Workmen's
Compensation Board for the prevention of accidents to employees in power-houses and substations have been covered. The rules have not yet been printed, but copies of individual
sections or particular rules are available. At an early date they will be submitted for approval
by Order in Council and will be subsequently obtainable in complete printed form.
Specifications.
An endeavour has been made during the year to encourage amongst the owners or builders
of factories of other structures where electrical equipment has to be installed the adoption
of the practice of having a complete specification drawn for all the electrical work. This
system will work in with the routine proposed under the new " Electrical Energy Inspection
Act" and will facilitate the work of the office. This practice has already been adopted for
several of the more important factory buildings which have recently been erected, the specification in each case being submitted to this office before the work is commenced.
12 C 180 Public Works Report  (1922-23).
" Electrical Energy Inspection Act, 1922."
During the year under review the matter of amending the " Electrical Energy Inspection
Act" was taken up. Ararious additions and changes were proposed and were embodied in the
new Act which was passed at the last session of the Legislature. Under this Act power is
now granted to prohibit or restrain the sale of electrical equipment the use of which would
be accompanied by danger to person or property. Additional powers have also been granted
relating to the submission of plans and specifications for electrical works previous to installation
being commenced. These and several other sections of the Act will, it is "considered, result
in a higher standard of electrical work, with consequently increased safety to the public and
to all persons working with or in the vicinity of electrical equipment. The desirability of
obtaining, as far as possible, standardization and uniformity of electrical installation-work
throughout the Province was kept in view during the drafting of the Act. Consequently
provision has been made which will reduce to a minimum the differences between electrical
by-laws which may be passed by the cities or municipalities. Experience to date with the
operation of the Act has been entirely satisfactory in this and in all other respects in which
its operation has so far been applied.
Rule of the Road.
The changes in the track and overhead work necessitated by the alteration of the Rule
of the Road have proceeded during the year and the British Columbia Electric Railway Company is now approaching completion of the work. These changes have been of an extensive
and varied nature and the supervision of same has occupied a considerable part of the time
of the office. Progress reports of the work indicate that, on account of modifications which
were found possible as the work proceeded, the expense to the Government for the changes
to the track and overhead portions of the railway equipment will be considerably less than
was anticipated.
Trj^nsmission and Distribution Lines.
The high-voltage transmission-line systems throughout the Province have been extended
during the year. The East Kootenay Power & Light Company has constructed a 06,000-volt
power-line from Cranbrook to Kimberley, primarily for the purpose of giving supply to the new
concentrator-mill of the Consolidated Mining & Smelting Company. This power company now
has approximately 100 miles of 06,000-volt transmission-line in Eastern British Columbia.
The extension to Kelowna of the high-voltage system of the West Kootenay Power & Light
Company in the Okanagan Valley has now been completed, this being a 30-mile extension from
the company's system at Penticton.
The Arancouver Power Company proposes extensive additions to its high-voltage transmission
system. A 30-mile extension from North Vancouver to Britannia Mines on Howe Sound is under
way. The power company has recently entered into a contract with the Britannia Mining &
Smelting Company for supply of electrical energy, and this line is for the purpose of giving
this supply. A sub-station will be built at the mines, where the supply will be stepped down
to 2,300 volts and used for supplementing the mining company's supply from its own hydroelectric plant. The Vancouver Power Company is also planning for an addition to the transmission system from Lake Buntzen power-house to Vancouver, consisting of a line from the
south end of Lake Buntzen and running round the head of the inlet at Port Moody. This line
will supplement the present long-span crossing over the inlet at Barnet. The company also
is about to undertake the reconstruction of approximately 12 miles of existing 34,000-voIt line.
The usual amount of extension of distribution-lines has been carried out, the major portion
of this work being in the Fraser Valley and other outlying parts of the British Columbia Electric
Railway Company's system. Throughout the Interior progress continues to be made in the
replacing of the 'older construction with new poles and lines in conformity with the overhead
rules.
Accidents.
There have been fourteen electrical accidents during the year, particulars of these being
as given below. One accident was fatal, and another, while not resulting in any loss of limbs
or eyesight, may result in partial disability. One accident resulted in amputation of a thumb,
and one accident was of a very minor nature, resulting in no loss of time from work.    The 14 Geo. 5

other accidents resulted in no permanent disability, but in the injured parties being incapacitated
from their duties for periods ranging from 6 to 119 days.

Inspections.
During the year all the office records of electrical installations in factories and industrial
plants generally were gone over, and a programme of inspection-work laid out covering new
installations and- others in which changes to electrical equipment had been made during the
year. A considerable number of factories were visited and inspections made of the maintenance
of the electrical equipment and wiring. The standard of work done in the installation of electric
motors, switch-gear, etc., was found to be very considerably improved. In the inspections of
transmission and distribution pole-lines special attention has been given to places of particular
importance, especially crossings of high-voltage transmission-lines with telephone circuits. The
separate list of inspections made under the " Electrical Energy Inspection Act" gives the
various plants and electrical distribution systems inspected during the year.
Public AVorks.
The work done during the year in conjunction with the office of the Supervising Architect
and Public AVorks Engineer has inciucled the preparation of specifications for the electrical
work in schools, hospitals, prisons, Court-houses, and other Government buildings and institutions. Reports have been made in connection with the maintenance of the electric wiring and
for the changing or renewing of same in various buildings where on account of structural
changes or for other reasons alterations to the electrical installation had become necessary. C 182 Public AVorks Report  (1922-23).
The erection of pole-lines on Provincial highways has been followed in the usual manner.
Co-operation between this office and the various District Engineers has resulted in control being
exercised over the locating and constructing of all pole-lines on the highways. By the system
in use records are obtained of all such lines, including a record of the ownership. A large
number of telephone-lines throughout the Province have been constructed on the highways
during the year, particularly on Vancouver Island, and as these in some cases have been
constructed on highways already occupied by telephone, telegraph, or power lines, considerable
negotiation has been required in some instances in order to arrange for joint pole-construction,
or for changing of route where this was necessary. The practice has been continued of limiting
the pole-lines on any one roadway to two in number, and this has necessitated joint construction
where more than one telephone or telegraph line are proposed on a roadway already occupied
by a power-transmission line.
Workmen's Compensation Board.
The office continues to carry on the electrical inspection work as required by this Board.
All electrical accidents resulting in compensation claims are investigated and reports submitted
to the Board.
General.
It has not been found practicable to complete the proposed rules for prevention of inductive
interference between high-voltage transmission-lines and telephone circuits. It has been found
necessary to leave the rules in general form only, and supplement them with special requirements in each individual case as it arises. Work of the usual varied nature was carried out
during the year for the offices of the Fire Marshal and Land Settlement Board and for other
offices and departments of the Government.

ANNUAL REPORT  OF INSPECTOR OF DYKES.
Office of Inspector of Dykes,
New Westminster, B.C., October 29th, 1923.
J. E. Griffith, Esq., C.E.,
Deputy Minister of Public Works, Victoria, B.C.
Sir,—The following report on the activities of the Dykes Department for the departmental
year ended September 30th, 1928, is respectfully submitted:—
Introductory.
In the early reclamation days of several of the Fraser River flood-plains certain dyking
districts were incorporated and the administration of those districts placed in the hands of
elected Commissioners. These administrators by the sale of bonds raised money with which
to carry on the dyking-works in their respective districts, and evidently experienced the usual
difficulties in performing the functions of their office.
The record Fraser freshet of 1894 brought such havoc that a new bond issue was necessary
for reconstruction purposes, and the Government of the Province of British Columbia saw fit
to come to their rescue to the extent of guaranteeing a part of the interest upon their bonds.
This proved to be the thin edge of the wedge, aud Government guarantees grew into actual
expenditures. These, in turn, grew to such proportions that the Government eventually had to
assume control and make advances to defray maintenance costs.
The charges necessary against the benefited lands, in order to repay the Government's
advances, became so great in 1904 that it was argued that the development and advancement
of the districts would.be jeopardized, and so the ''Dyking Assessments Adjustment Act, 1905,"
was enacted. By it a part of the Government's expenditures was established as fixed capital
charges; those charges were apportioned against the districts involved, and regulations were
made, the carrying-out of which would recoup those charges to the Government at the end of
forty years. Provision was further made for the maintenance of the several dyking-works by
way of altering, adding to, and renewing the same, and for assessing and collecting these costs,
together with interest and sinking fund charges on the fixed capital, in annual assessments.
An officer known as the "Inspector of Dykes" is vested with the responsibilities entaiied
in the carrying-out of the enactment, and the following constitutes the eighteenth annual report
of that officer. Those responsibilities may properly be divided under two headings, and are
here treated as such—namely, Finance and Works.
(1.)  Finance.
According to the original enactment, lands upon which assessments were due December
31st and unpaid at July 31st following became involved in tax sale. It was found that this
machinery had become obsolete and was not filling the purpose for which it was intended.
In addition, advertising costs amounted to 50 per cent, of the unpaid assessments. During the
year the 1922 amendment became operative, and by it a system of automatic forfeiture replaces
the system of tax sale. Lands in arrears now become subject to forfeiture one year after the
assessments become due, and remain in that status for another year, after which they become
absolutely forfeited to the Crown. Due and timely notice is required of these two procedures
to all parties interested, and the result is that collections are easier.
The following summary shows the structure of the several assessment rolls for the year
under review :— C 184 Public Works Report  (1922-23),

In the assessment rolls to which these extracts refer the original capital of 1905 forms a
separate assessment. All other Government advances in which repayment is distributed over
a term of years are treated as deferred maintenance charge, and collections on interest and
sinking fund payments are included in the ordinary maintenance charges for any year. This
has the effect of making that part of the individual assessment segregated to maintenance appear
out of proportion to the work done in any year as straight maintenance-work, and sometimes
throws the Department open to unfair criticism. To remedy this an amendment to the Act
would be necessary, which would consolidate the different deferred maintenance accounts and
bring them to account along with the original capital charges.
The charges above referred to are payable on December 31st next.
Collections.—Collections for the year dealing with the assessments which became payable on
Deceniher 31st, 1922, and arrears thereto, have been slightly enlivened by the amendment of
1922 mentioned previously. The notices to the owners or occupiers required to be mailed July
Isi to those in arrears brought some results, and it is felt that the second notice required after
December 31st, which notice is sent to the owners, and also to the holders of any registered
charges, will greatly speed up the payment of arrears.
Collections for the year have been as follows: Total collections, September 30th, 1922, to

The question of arrears in the Coquitlam District has given considerable concern, arising
out of the subdivision into town lots during the real-estate boom of 1911 and 1912. Resulting
from that subdivision the City of Port Coquitlam, has some 447.5 acres in allowances for streets
and roads, and is in arrears upon this acreage since 1914 in the amount of $9,194.79, exclusive
of interest charges. Attempts have been made to recover a part of these arrears, but without
success. A document is on file from the Corporation of the city which is intended to substitute
for a judgment, but the actual recovery of these arrears appears very indefinite.
Expenditures.—Expenditures for the year other than ordinary maintenance expenditures
will be referred to under " Works." C 186
Public Works Report  (1922-23).
Ordinary expenditures in all districts have been kept to as low a point as possible, commensurate with service, and show a combined reduction of $3,556.89 over the previous year, as

The question of taxation is ever important with the Department. Complaints of their
severity appear to have been general for all time, and the remedy would seem to lie along the
lines of increased production. In so far as this concerns dyked lands, the answer seems to
be drainage facilities first, and after that more individual industry, which will be further
referred to under " Works."
Drainage facilities cost money; wherefore maintenance charge must be kept down or the
combined dyking charges will constitute a burden. To help towards economy the Inspector of
Dykes, with his office and staff, was removed from Victoria to New Westminster on March 1st,
1923, and the saving thus effected is quite considerable.
(2.) Works.
Ordinary maintenance requirements may truly be said to depend upon the amount of
precipitation and evaporation, together with flood-heights attained by the rivers, and time of
duration, with the last-named factor being cumulative in effect because of the question of seepage
and attendant dangers. The following table shows the recorded flood-heights over a number of
years:— 14 Geo. 5

The following shows the time of duration compared with a few other years at Matsqui
Gates closed. Gates opened.
1920    May 16 Aug. 26

1922    May 16 July 21
1923   May    9 Aug.    4
From this comparison it is noted that the time of duration was slightly less than the average.
It covered a period of eighty-seven days, but as the freshet was not extremely high, none of
the dyke structures were endangered to any extent, although precautionary measures were
necessary at Matsqui for two days around June 14th. No emergency work was necessary upon
the dykes throughout the year, and therefore nothing was attempted.
In the report of last year the question of the seepage evil along the Matsqui defence was
recited, and the efforts made to interest the three railway companies who are vitally interested
in the dykes' security. The matter was thought of sufficient importance to warrant appeal to
the Board of Railway Commissioners. A hearing took place at Victoria on September ISth,
1922, at which a decision was withheld, pending a fuller consideration of the Board's jurisdiction.
Under date March 20th, 1923, the Board, through their Secretary, advised that " they were
endeavouring to make amicable arrangements, and that, failing in this, judgment would issue."
The full meaning of the foregoing is not clear, but the fact remains that nothing has yet been
done towards making this structure safe, and it is the opinion of the writer that in its present
condition a freshet approaching that of 1894 would cause it to fail in one or more sections.
The remedy involves an expenditure of some $45,000; action is therefore deferred, fearing
that such an expenditure would overburden the district.
Pumping.—Pumping services were continued as usual, but owing to the excess of evaporation
over precipitation the demands were not great and a considerable saving in power-consumption
was effected. C 188 Public Works Report  (1922-23).
During the season some slight trouble developed in one of the old Byron Jackson pumps at
Matsqui, as well as with two pulleys on the new pumps in that district, and these defects will
require attention before another season.
Flood-boxes.—Three wooden flood-gates have not yet been renewed, and they have about
reached the limit of their useful lives. One of these on Slough No. 1, Matsqui, 'was included
in the programme of concrete sluices, 1920, but was withdrawn on account of the excessive
costs prevailing. Its renewal must soon be undertaken, at which time attention should be given
to a 20-per-cent. increase in capacity.
Many of the gates on those constructed in 1912 require renewing, and it is intended to do
this under ordinary maintenance before the next spring freshet.
The defective concrete flood-box in Coquitlam District was repaired during the year and
the cost charged to ordinary maintenance, which fact explains the increase in maintenance
expenditure in that district. One additional flood-box was provided in Maple Ridge District
during the year;  this is referred to under " New Work."
Brushing.—The problem of brushing the dykes is one that now assumes quite large proportions, except in those districts where the Department's pasturing permit is in demand. The
custom was inaugurated two years ago of granting permits over specified sections, in return for
the privileges of which the holder undertook to close cut brush aud noxious weeds. In the Pitt
River Districts these permits are not in demand and the brush is away to a great start. The
cutting of this brush is expensive work under prevailing labour conditions, and unless the cleared
area is closely grazed the growth of the new hrush is very rapid. Certain sections have been
kept closely cut to admit of more thorough inspection and any necessary work which might
develop, but beyond this no expense has been incurred. Attempts have been made to interest
sheepmen in this grazing proposition, and it is helieved in this way a means of permanently
disposing of the brushing question without adding to maintenance charges may be found.
One sheepman became enthusiastic over the proposition, and stated that the Pitt River dykes
provided ample grazing-ground for 4,000 sheep. Unfortunately, he had not sufficient capital
with which to stock up.
New Work.
New work for the year has been confined to the construction of a reinforced-concrete flood-box
in the Maple Ridge District and drainage-work in Coquitlam, Pitt Meadows No. 2, and Maple
Ridge Districts.
The flood-box above referred to is the first to be constructed in this district emptying into
the Fraser River. It supplements the outlet capacity of those previously existing, and in addition
draws to an elevation of 1.5 feet lower. It consists of a double inverted " II " on a floor resting
on mud-sills, with the necessary cut-offs, aprons, and retaining-walls. The " U" type was
adopted to permit a greater bottom width to the barrels. This width is 6 feet in each. A feature
of this box is a new type of gate suspended in a vertical position from an axle mounted on
dry-kiln-truck wheels, the wheels being in a horizontal runway, with a 20-inch freedom of
movement in the direction of the longest axis of the box. It was designed with the idea of
reducing friction losses and thus to be enabled to take the maximum advantage of a falling
tide, and conversely to close quickly on a rising tide, and is proving very satisfactory.
The whole was constructed by day-work with local labour under our direct supervision.
It cost $3,459 and is included in the Maple Ridge drainage job.
Drainage.—During the year the Department's unit of excavating machinery has been busy
for two shifts each day, with the exception of two weeks in December, 1922, when the frost
was sufficiently intense to slow down the work to such an extent that it was considered advisable
to tie up, awaiting a change in weather conditions.
The job on the natural waterways in the Maple Ridge District was completed, as well as the
excavation for the flood-box already mentioned. The unit then undertook the completion of
the back-ditch improvements in the Coquitlam District, and attended to some necessary work
in that part of the district which was being intensively cultivated.
Pitt Meadows No. 2 District was then undertaken, and at the end of the Department's year
the plant had just finished the refilling and outlet at the flood-box already mentioned in the
Maple Ridge District. Sufficient time has elapsed since the completion of the work on the
natural waterways in the Maple Ridge District to prove that with proper drainage facilities 14 Geo. 5 Inspector of Dykes. C 189
that area may yet become a great asset to the agricultural wealth of the Province, and the
financial interests of the Government therein made secure.
The work in its present scope, confining itself as it does to natural waterways, does not
permit of individual benefit, and yet the area was dry enough this summer to justify the opening
of the flood-gates on three occasions to let the river-water in. Residents claim that the crops in
cultivated portions this year showed a material increase over any other year, and it is the
opinion of the writer that a comprehensive drainage scheme would now be justified in this area.
The problem there is to so control the water-table that the land can be worked early in the
season,' and it is now demonstrated that this can be done.
Pitt Meadows No. 2 District.—During the year a fairly comprehensive drainage scheme was
executed in this district. Commencement was made in April to do the necessary work on a part
of that area controlled by the Canadian Financiers Trust Company, and at the expense of that
company. While that work was in progress the settlers on the remaining portion of the area
petitioned for better drainage under section 5S of the Act. Authority was given and the work
extended to embrace the whole area. Some 8.25 miles of lateral-ditch work, averaging a depth
of 6 feet and a bottom width 3 feet and 4 feet, were constructed, together with 1.4 miles of
slough-cleansing.
The projects above referred to were executed by the Dykes Department plant at actual cost
plus plant rental, surveying, supervision, accounting, etc., being absorbed by the permanent staff.
General.
When it was decided to remove from Victoria to New Westminster early in the year, it was
then hoped that the year would show better results, both as regards finance and works.
It is now felt that that hope has, in a measure, been realized, and that with a full year it
will become more pronounced.
Yours obediently,
Bruce Dixon,
Inspector of Dykes.
