Commission has [nad This import- ant -body has stirred to action some Indifferent provincial ..authorities, and there is now the prospect that by next Spring a complete table of water powers in the Dominion will be ready to place before the public, along with niucn valuable information relating tnereto. It may be said in passing, of 21.9 tons of coal. On this basis, tne available water powers of Carrara represent a-combined energy, which, if .it had to be maintained by steam force generated from coal, would .in- a coal Hun- dred million tons per .Most people' in tnese days of, costly coal, win understand, from .-'thiaV.eq- enormous value of our national asset. .Mr. son, a well known authority, has stai- ed that can be generated at Pails on tie Ottawa River at a cost of five dollars per horse power. While this is. a. good deal below the. average, it shows that light, heat and can. so rar 'as the unnavigabre streams are concerned. The fact that the provincial authorities have i now begun to take an interest iu this (power matter does not give them any j rights further than control in. the in- terests of public. Of course the on public lands, the pro- perty of the Dominion or the provin- ces, belong to the several governments concerned.. Power on Navigable Rfvers- Another matter worthy of some at-j tention is the fact that the develop- ment of water ways on present unnav iigabie streams -will result in the ere ation of marketable power, the (level opment of which for the purpose of power alone would not repay the" ex- penditure. For example, the proposed Montreal-Ottwa- and Georgian Bay ship canal, when .constructed.; will create.water powers amounting in the aggregate to horse power. This will -be obtained 'by, the raising of levels.
