Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 7, 1909, Lethbridge, Alberta TMI LETHtiftlDOC DAILY TUftOAV, 7, Hi To take your metis at the on- ly all-round white Restaur- ant in Leth- bridge THE ALEXANDRA CAFE And Eggs, also Vegetables and Home G-rown Suckling Pigs and Pork from our farm, tt is for you.

MURRAY, Prop. j HEATING OP THE FIRE HALL Editor Lethbridge Herald j Dear understand that during my absence from town the matter of the steam heating boiler in the fire hall was a subject of discussion in the city council. Some of the 'aldermen being inclined to condemn the archi- tect, some the contractor and some i of the boiler. They i need not have gone so far afield _ as j the cause could readily have been found in one of the departments at the building. Last spring the boiler was taken over by me after a thorough inspec- tion, after testing it with 22 pounds pressure, (a very much greater pres- sure than it or any other low pres- sure is required to The boiler worked satisfactorily all last winter, and in the cold spring weather, with but one exception, and upon that occasion on visiting the hall I saw the water guage was full and could get no information as to how much water was being carried so went from floor to floor and found every pipe and radiator full of water Edison Phonographs Are sold at one price all over Canada.

However, the plant was intended as a steam plant and I reduced the water to a proper j .'column and then had no difficulty in j i satisfactorily heating the building; I with, but two pounds of steam, and I may say that the plant was operat- ed a part of the time last winter and in the early spring by some one or other of the city police force, and they certainly made no complaint of the plant. Last spring I gave instructions that the boiler should be cleaned as soon as it was not required for heat- ing the building, that the entire heat- ing system should then be filled with water and kept so as to until required for use this winter when the water was to be reduced to a proper level. Well, the boiler was drained dry and left without one drop of water in it, and there can be no doubt but that it was dry fired and water then turned in. All ex- perts, save two, who have examined the boiler agree upon this. One, Mr. 1 Silver says it must.have been that j or else a sudden rush of cold air in- l to the fire box thus chilling the hot iron and causing unequal contraction in the casting. He was then speaking to Mr. McKenzie and myself of the broken rear section which was furth- est from the fire box and which on one side was exposed to the not very cold air of the basement. This is rather a far fetched reason as that cold air (not very cold either) was colder when it passed under the in- side section than when it reached the rear section and the inside sections being closer to the fire were neces- sarily hotter than the rear one, con- of or Keuralgia of Blood Poisoning.

At or frooa if anything does go wrong why to can always put it up to archi- tect, the contractor or the castings. The worthy chief also arrogates to himself the right to say what shall and shall not be done by any con- tractor having a contract with the city, he is superior to contracts as witness his conduct in ordering em- ployees of 'the. Hick Hardware Co. to stop certain plumbing work for which this company holds a written contract with the city. Truly a great "man is Chief Kilkenny. I am that sa.iu the whole ing contract a damned graft. This could not be unless I, as archi- tect, was a .party ta the graft, if Chief Kilkenny made this statement my only reply .is an invitation to re- peat it in writing and I assure him that if he does I will land him in the penitentiary on a criminal libel suit. Chief Kilkenny may have been good sailor, he is a good fireman, but I am afraid his only intimate ac- quaintance with boilers must have been the coffee boiler in the cook's galley on board ship. JAMES A. MACDONALD. Have You Investigated Great interest is shown jf in Lumited, Ottawa. sequently there must have been much more contraction in them and there- for more liability to fracture. Of course, Mr. Silver did not give this as a probable cause, rather a possible cause. The other gentleman was from Winnipeg and had boilers to sell himself, and he said, "Oh that damned boiler is no good thus per- petrating a good joke on those of his hearers who did not know that the Rococo boiler he was selling and the boiler in use in the fire hall are iden- tical, being cast by the same com- pany and in the same mould, with the exception of the doors upon which j the name Florence, etc., appears on one, and on the other Rococo, etc. Mr. Bradshaw, representing the Wm. Head Co., doing business in op- position to the contracting also the foreman of Mr. Silver's moulding said the castings were sound anr nothing ,but dry fir- ing could have caused the break. Oth- er men familiar with heating plants say the same, and Fire Chief Kil- kenny at first admitted it ,as the on- ly cause when the first section broke, but afterwards declared it was caus- .ed by defective casting, then when the second section broke he was even more sure of it. I do not know what the Sailor Fire Chief's opinion is since the experts have declared the casting sound. WThen the first section broke it was taken off, plugged and re-connected, and some time afterward the rear section broke and the Fire Chief came to'my orficfe and informed me of the break, saying there was a foot of water in the basement which had SUPPORTS PRESENT POLICY Editor Lethbridge Daily Herald a ratepayer I attended the ratepayers' meeting on Saturday and was glad to hear Aids. Hutton and Oliver declare their views in favor of the segregation of the social evil in spite of what that Christian, Dr. Galbraith said regarding his fallen sisters. His fallen sisters they sure- ly are according to the teachings ol Christ, and if Dr. Galbraith wants the people of this city to believe in his Christianity he had better prac- tice a little more what he preaches. Now then, here are a few things Dr. G-albraith never did during all the time he was mayor and autocrat of the police. He did not stop the social evil. It existed in worse form when he was mayor than it does to-day. There were more houses of ill-fame, and the hangers-on of unfortunate women were allowed to live in the city .un- molested. Every Chinese restaurant sold booze without a license, and nev- er an effort made by Dr. Galbraith or his police force to stop it. One effort on the part of Dr. Galbraith to stop gambling ended in his utter de- feat. He made an honest to catch the hotelkeepers, and most peo- ple know what he accomplished. "Nothing." One thing he did do he made matters worse. Now, what do we find under th5 present administration? A segrega- tion policy, controlled by the police, and unless a man is looking for such a place he would never know that it existed. Dr. G-albraith or anybody else douldn't get a drink from a Chi- nese restaurant-keeper on a bet.

I have visited most of the teasiJns cities of the West, and I have heard nothing but praise -about the way this city was run. Visitors say me have got the best police la Western Canada. This, I to be true. One thing is certain the lice force to-day is a thousand I'tr cent, better than it ever was Dr. Galbraith. One point mostly ail the people in the city of Lethbcidge are agreed upon, and if lit. Galbraith would leave the adminis- tration of law and order as it now is, in the hands of-the chief of police. who, everybody knows, has forgot more than Dr. Galbraith ever knew about such work, would confer a. fav- or on the public.

I immediately went to the fire -hall >and found about a half-inch of water instead of a foot and upon asking what had become of the sur- plus water, was informed that it had j drained away, thus showing that he knows as little of the drainage of the building as he does of his heat- ing as the sewer is several inches i higher than the basement floor. On 1 former occasions water in the base- ment had to be pumped out. I was more than ever convinced that the j boiler was killed by dry firing and j said so. Thirty-six hours later there was still fire under the section, thus j keeping a part of them hot while! other parts were chilled, thus pro- moting unequal the wonder is that every section was not ruined by this treatment. On one occasion he complained that he could get no heat to the north end of the building, and on inspection I found this to be true and could not at first locate the trouble, but later -discovered the valve on the main closed and upon asking why this was so the reply was "So the steam could be forced into the other main and get the steam to the radi- ators good and hot.'7 At the same time I examined a small jacket heat- I cr connected with the range boiler j and on looking at it I was assured j of the absolute absurdity of leaving an expensive steam heating plant in the fire chief's control. The fire box to the small heater was completely filled with ashes, nevertheless the up- per part of the heater was so full of burning coal that the cover would not fit in place so full in fact that the smoke pipe was half full of burn- j ing coal and this in a small heater j such as many of us use in our laun-, dry. The heating plant in competent j hands Bah When Chief Kilkenney came into our midst he refused to assume thej of building inspector, very j properly contending that his duties, as Fire Chief would occupy all his time. Yet he voluntarily assumes j _ the task of performing a part of the j janitor's duties, thus preventing that! individual from receiving some extra i i salary that, should have been paid to i f, some' competent man to care for the! heating plant and be responsible for j same. And so he makes a fcl- j low of himself as he naturally ex-; pccts and receives due credit for this j jjjj petty economy and why should he not As it is not he who does the j work hut the floor-man. It docs not j matter that the floor-man may find the work hard or disagreeable or that he is employed only as a fire- man, that has nothing to do with the case.
