Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 10, 1908, Lethbridge, Alberta SHELLED OUT THE REAL CASH Letkbridge People On Train Held Up at Great Falls (From Wednesday's Daily) The sensational hold-up of the Great .Northern train at Gieat Falls A MONO TRAGEDY Orangeville, June Wis- dom, a farmer of Mono, and his wife. Bella, were drowned while taking shel- under a bridge on the Hockley road, eight miles from here. Mrs. Wisdom and her children left home with lunch for the men who were working on the back part of the farm. A violent storm blew up, and Mrs. Wisdom and her husband, with two of the younger children took shel- ter under an old bridge over a dried j up cwek. Suddenly a wall of water said to be about fifteen feet high came rushing into the bed of the creek filling it to overflowing. The old bridge was torn from its place and the unfortunate people were swept away. The eldest son, who was standing on the bank when the rush of water came down went to the rescue and j succeeded in saving the two chldren hilt- T.hp father ntirl nuithor knth LISTS IN ALBERTA AND SASKAT.

The statement is of great im- portance at the present juncture, be- cause it shows that, at the time of the Dominion Elections Act was pass- ed, the Dominion government assum- ed that only municipally made lists would come under its operation. The Gazette, which appears to be very- znuch in need of information, may be interested in learning that in the Provinces of Alberta and Sn.skjt.t- chewan there are not and never h-.ve been voters' lists. The electors have hitherto been voting under a remarkable law, for which Mr. Haul- tain is responsible, permits anybody to vote at any polling booth provided he is willing to take oath as to his qualifications, If and to establish subsequently his the Council by Cecil B. Smith, the eminent engineer, on the water, pow- er and light problems of the city was read at the Council last night and is given in full -below. His report on the valuation of the Electric Company's plant is not being discussed or publrshed until the Elec- tric Company prepare and submit a statement of their valuation of their plant. The Council consider such an action only fair to the company be- ing in accordance with the agreement made at the time the gas-well bargain was made. The report comes up for discussion at a joint meeting of the Fire, Water and Light and the Waterworks com- mittees tomorrow evening. It reads as To the Mayor and Council, City of Lethbridge, Alberta. Gentlemen: In compliance with instructions given by your City Engineer's letter of April the Bth we have carefully ficiency in boilers, steam engines, generators, line, motors and pumps, are excessive and might have been largely avoided by direct steam pumping with high class equipment, but, taken under existing conditions with pumping station well equipped for gallons per day, nominal capacity, with the opportunity for ad- justing the pumping and lighting loads on the generating station so as to give a large per cent, load factor for 24 hours, it is advisable to con- tinue the present method if the recom- mendations herein are carried out. The probability or otherwise of se- curing a natural gas supply for fuel need not be. discussed as it would merely mean adjusting boilers for gas firing with some consequent economy in fuel accounts.

This will have no bearing, however, upon the Dominica elections, which will be held on Dominion lists specially com- j piled under the authority of the Do- pipe, intake, etc., owned and operated by your City, and the Electric Light and Power Station, distributing sys- ing to the certain high cost of.water for all time, based on high lift, we strongly endorse the proposed meter- water pable of meeting the immediate future needs of the City. generating machinery ing of simple non-condensing engines and direct connected and one belt driven generator, etc., is barely sufficient at present and will not be able to satisfy the demand for City pumping and light during the early evening of the coming winter, unless a second standpipe is erected this summer. The electrical capacity of the station is 450 K. W. nominal rating but practically one machine 250 K.W. with 25 per cent, 312 K.W. is its safe operating maxi- mum. An equivalent new power sta- tion with fire proof brick building the present time, and besides being now, would be therefore more efficient, but such a. station would, at the best, be insufficient and not, an economical station to operate and is not to be considered except by way of compar- ison and illustration. It being evident that your present arrangement for light and power is unsatisfactory, in- sufficient and even dangerous to property in case of accident, there are several ways by which this condition may be modified or completely chang- ed. 1. The construction of a new mu nicipal power and light gineratin station and distributing system, dis regarding the plant of the presen company. 2. The purchase of the plant anc effects of the present company at plant in the valley of the Belly River generating station making use of a much of the equipment of the presen station as it will be profitable and proper to use. 3. Entering into a new and satis erating station of 600 K. W. (800 H.P.) and a distribution system is appended showing yearly expenditures and sug- gested electric rates for meeting the same. We are of the opinion that such rates will induce immediately a larg- er custom even than is therein indi- cated. We also append a valuation of the present plant and system based on actual cost with proper depreciation it must be realized that this system has nothing of value which can be utilized in the new sta- tion except the two generating' units, with exciters, to 450 K. W. and one Babcock and Wilcox watertube boiler (which will carry 150 power for water pumping from the present company for a term of ten years from December 1909 with a pro per franchise to the company thereby fixing rates for light and power in the City for a similar term of years, and an undertaking from the company covering the expenditure to be made for a proper reconstruction and ex- tension of the present station. In connection with any of the above schemes we consider the laying of a second C. I. force main from the pumping station to the top of the train backed up half a mile and wait- ed the specified time before going in. In the meantime, a switch engine on a nearby sidetrack and getting onto what was doing, the crew took the engine into the station, got some police, and returned speedily to the scene. The boys escaped, however, as the deal only with matters brought be- fore them in the regular way, as de- nned by statute.

Ritchie for twenty years a traveller for Eby Blain Co., wholesale gro- cers, is dead. The hardness of the water from the present source is not likely to be greater than that from the St. Mary's River would be and the purity is likely -to be unquestioned for gener- ations, and superior on the whole to the St. Mary's River water, therefore cost of supply is the real criterion, and the probable present investment required for the first method is too great to warrant serious considea- tion. The adoption of the second method would necessitate a considerable in- vestment and two pumping stations, with consequent operating costs, etc., or else abandoning or moving the present equipment, installing and op- erating filters, and depending entirely a meagre source of supply, required soon for other purposes and liable to gradual con- tamination due to the increased popu- lation along the route of the canal, therefore we cannot recommend it. but advise adhering entirely to the present source of supply, at the pres- ent at least. This present source is sure to be ample and pure, for any period in thc future opon fo discussion and the high lift is not so serious due to the low cost of coal, as it might otherwise be. Source of Power for Pumping tion ditch water, a reservoir as sug gested by the City engineer and pumping station for partial use in the City under low pressure, for sup plying industrial uses, and lawn sprinkling, etc. If the City is prepared to make the necessary added capital investment for a second pumping station, a reservoir and a distribution system, for these purposes the water being warmer will be better adapted for irrrigation, and will be more freely used, and the ques- tion is whether the water is as gooc for boiler purposes; your City engin- eer should have several analyses -made of water from, each source so as to establish a comparison as to tem- porary and permanent hardness, al- kalinity, etc. We are cf the opinion however, that the interest on extra capital invest- and the cost of operating and maintaining a second pumping station will be more expensive than to in- crease- the equipment of the present station beyond gallons per day, when required, and supply all water from the present station. The Lethbridge Electric Co., illus- trates the history of many similar un- dertakings in which from small be- ginnings, v-ith meagre business, no reserve account was put by to meet the inevitable hour when worn out equipment had to be replaced and ex- tender] by using new capital and this has gone on until the building is a jumble of brick and frame, a veri- table fire trap. The boilers, as at pres- ent handled with slack coal and hard The reasons for pumping electrical- water are utterly ineflicient and inca- tinned during the period from 4 p.m. to 12 p.m. in winter and 6 p.m. to 12 p.m. in summer, thereby keeping entirely off the lighting load and economizing power and labor and im- proving load factor of the generating station. Build a New Station Should the City decide to build a new station, which appears to be the most economical and sensible thing to do, whether with or without the purchase of the present Company's equipment. Then the first step should be to make an optional contract for supply of coal from thxe Ashcroft mine extending over a term of years, and then locate the new station immedi- ately alongside the present pumping The reasons for choosing this loca-j tion are that by so doing the engines or turbines can be run condensing and the water treated and kept free from scale forming impurities ,thus very largely reducing labor and fuel items, and giving power with reduc- Ibs. Distribution system can be util- ized but will need some extensions. The remaining boilers being sold as also the remainder of the present sta- tion equipment. We give as a second estimate a new station which will have 300 K. W. (400 H. unit and floor space for a second one, and will also have the old generating unit (450 K. W.) in- stalled and the present Babcock and Wilcox boiler, and win utilize the distribution system of the company. It will be noted that the capital cost including buying out of the old plant 'is much higher than that of a new system and it would be worth less. We give finally a memorandum showing what in our opinion, it is necessary for the present company to do in the way of improvements and extensions to put the present station on a proper basis, and in connection therewith, we have suggested certain rates which the present company should be willing to accept for a 10 year franchise (exclusive) in addition to the obligation of spending sufficient money as indicated, to put the plant on a proper working basis. The City has become dependent on electricity for water, fire service, and light and we are therefore constrain- ed to advise that your best interests will be served community by having control, and operating direct- V, so to be dependent any onger on any company. As regards the purchase or other- vise of the present company's plant. This is a moral question, not engin- is evident from our esti- mates that the purchase of the plant vill be dene at a financial loss to the 3ity, but at the same time considera- ion is due to public spirited citizens vho in the early lean days put moner nto such an undertaking to the ben- fit of the people. Reference must be made to the well uilt and intelligently operated pump- ng station and water distribution ystem owned and? operated by your at the present 'time. The price paid for pow.er is too high, and with a large storage tank enabl- ing the pumping to be done continu- ously in the daytime and after mid- night, a lower rate should be expected. The City pumping.load gives over 80 per cent of all the rerenue obtain- ed by the Company for power services and were it not for this contract the station could not be run in the day time "at all except at a heavy loss. We note that the contract provides that the Company shall pump water including the furnishinc of men and repairs in the pumping station, pos- sibly there may be some ancilliary agreement bearing on this point. With the City's growth, the electric re- pi open v man- aged central station should be able to secure the custom of all power users in the City owing to cheapening effect of operating wholesale, and also because the separate steam power v w ti. v> J.LI.U i.cu.uc" "If ed cost. The second reason is that the fUSt novv 3uffer from hard ter and scaled boilers, whereas the City central station if located at the river side, will operate condensing, ef- fecting great economy in operation and reduced boiler depreciation, and line loss on power will be saved and the labor pay roll reduced by operat- ing the power station and pumping station the same staff. When the City has increased some- what in population an incinerator will be necessary, and if a proper selec- tion is made at the time a large amount of steam can be obtained from the burning of the garbage to help out the power station.

We would recommend that the stor- age tank, water meters, and if the City can. afford it, the second pres- ure main be installed at once, and that the generating station, etc., be designed and tenders called for as soon-, as the City policy has been de- cided on, leaving the actual construc- tion of these latter works until next season.
