Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - April 26, 1916, Lethbridge, Alberta "WEDNESDAY, APRIL 26, 1010 THE LETlIuniDGE WEICKLY HERALD PAGE FIVE.. POWER COST AND SALE W. MUIR EDWARDS, Professor of Civil and Municipal Englneerlnfl THIRD ARTICLE In nonsldering the imrchasr. of power it flhould bo boriio In mind tliiit llio miildng und Holling of tlilB commodity is a conimercinl onterprtso a.iid ia tlicrctoro governed by laws wlilcli underlie all sucii undertnlV,000 Depreciation (adjusted) ... Operation t maintenance.. we might therefore take the lime to illuBtrate it from an actual example from the load curve of the Edmonton power plant. On July liOth, Iflir., the maximum rate of using power for 15 minutes was 3350 k.w. but the total power sold was 44,050 kilowatt hours. ' This averaged over 24 hours gives an ' average rate of 1873 k.w., and thus on a h. p. year basis reckoned on a monthly maxlnuim. The total power sold in July was 1,181,141! k.w. hours, and the peak was 3900 k.w., whilst in December the total was l,998,7r)2 k.w. hours and the peak 6200 k.w. Thus the coat at 1 cent .per k.w. hour would be for July $11,811.42 and for December $19,- 13,000 20,000 ing a winter month, in December IBUi, 1915, the maximum rate was 58B0 k.w. and total power sold GC,830 k.w. hours and thus the average rate of .using power was 3785 k.w.

In the i,our basis or m so much a horse steam plant on the other hand the i power year measured on a peak load operation charges represent a little : basis. The first method is that upon over 05% of the total cost and of, which bids for power were required this 65%, 50% of the total annual by the city of Edmonton and the charge is for fuel, wlilch,'of course;' second 'is illustratea by the condi-varies wItJi the output. ..A steam; tions of payment sot down in the ]dant is thus more flexible than a | contract of December 1st, 1918, be-hydi-auilc develcpment In adjusting tween the city of Calgary and the the cost of production to the variation Calgary Power Company, in demand. This consideration of the j a horse-power year Is e avalanches that reverberate like a' Flanders bombard' tnent. There are lakes, beautiful be yond compare, deep-hearted pools, waterfalls of all heights, muskeg traps nnd rock strewn trails, and glacial 1 oulders stranded far from their north-i�rn habitant in the mysterious north of a mysterious ice age. There are moreover' signs of wild life on every hand. The Ptarmigan is (ivorywbere, standing stupidly in one's way, deer and bear tracks freshly made on the snow, goat paths that point the way to summits, marmots that whistle, gophers that invade tent and larder as impudently as porcupine, while an occasional bunny or a flying eagle add variety to the mountain zoo. Let us hit the trail together for this Canadian Garden of the Gods, where nature may be viewed In all her sub-'Imity and variety, and where He who made the hills has placed circles a&d ranges of mighty summits rlvallln� each other In towering heights through and beyond the fleecy clouds. It will be at Lake Louise station that pack ponies will be diamond-hitched and saddle ponies mounted. Heading northward, little but lively Corral Creek blocks the way and demands the flrst of scores of wading processes with the water dashing over feet and leg-gins. But water doesn't count on the trail, whether in wet feet or a downpour from the sky, for warmth and dryness are at the end of the trail. And such a glorious trail It Is, like an unfolding panorama with new scenes at every turn, a succession of God's canvasses In the great gallery of the open air. It Is all uphill for the first league or two. At each succeeding altitude a turn In the saddle held the eye spellbound with the scene to the south whore, like soldiers on parade, thirty miles of giant peaks lined up and made a beautiful vision: the Ten Peaks, lordly Temple, Aberdeen, Lefroy dominating Lake Louise, Victoria's Glacier, glistening white. We are high enough to even catch an entrancing glimpse of Lake Louise. It Is truly an upheaved world where "hills peep o'er hills and alps on alps arise." Now It Is facing forward as a new world stands revealed. Yonder Is a speck of white in an Immensity of space. Thanks be, It Is a tent and a curl of smoke. How the heart of the trail-hitter warms to the sight! Shelter, food, warmth, a balsam bough-bed, mugs of tea, rashers of bacon, palls of prunes, squares of Banff bread, what more could mortal ask? The next day, and a red letter day It will prove to be. The early morning sun ushers In a day of wonurous charm that makes every nerve tingle with the glow of life. Radiating valleys on every hand invite exploration, shimmering summits look down upon us as giants upon pigmies, cascades and rapids sine their song of tba wild, and the wor'd of men and war seems to belong to another planet. Oft we start on another trail, thrilling at every turn with the sensation of the flrsc sight of nature marvels. W� make for One Tree Pass, where the footmarks of what have been a giant bruin were freshly made. Do not the very names of Merlin Lake and Merlin Castle sound seductive? And little Lake Myosotls is a miniature Lake Louise and no less beautiful, dammed up In a basin formed by the tilting of the strata, the overflow In a trickling stream making the birth of a river. Yonder rise the Walls of Jericho, forr bidding in their black and frowning mass. Through the Stoky Valley we make a detour, catching a glimpse of massive Hector to the west, with Cathedral Peak asserting Us lordliness of height. Tramping tbroufih Iallej> tijsber, oyer treacherous scree, fording streams oti^ bridges of a single log, and at times ber ing mired in a hidden muskeg, are mere Incidents in the day's fun. Thei happy hours lly quickly until, as th�( day hurries to its close, we hurried toj another camp on the Red Deer, nnderi the lee of the Black and White Doug-j lass peaks, towering over 11,000 feetl above sea level and curious Mounti Molar Ailing the sky caavass with ita tooth-like summit. Here were mows, lakes, more Niagaras, more flower-strewn vales, more Ittteral nps and downs, for a trail is vazelj content to work on the level. So the happy days sped away until the last one came, the last camp fire was enjoyed, and the final bit of saddle travel as the return journey was made, and a most deliehtlBi tiifi. cwm to an end.
