DAVENPORT COMPANY PLACE BIG ORDER FOR LATEST STYLE EQUIPMENT Burmis, Davenporl Coal Company this last week "have placed, orders with Messrs. C. W. Stan cllffe and Company, of Vancouver, for complete equipment of new screens boflora, engines haulage installs tlon. 'The boilers and engines are o] the well known type of Lincoln, Eng Jand, and the screens are made by Messrs. Head, Wrlghtson and Com of Stockton-on-Tees, England. The ,Bcfeens are of the "Marcus" type, being a. completely uew'innova- tlon_in this country, and are the verj latest iii screening and picking effi- ciency. The motion .ot these screens is Imparted by the means ot a spec- ial. !gear, and gives slow forward and quick backward movements. -''The coal thus gent'ly. travels along the bed of the, screen, which is set per- fectly level; and no breakage ot coa! can possibly ,oucur. To further avoid breakage a rotary dunwr is to be in- stalled, which will gently turn over the mine car, and allffw the coal to slide but on to the leading to the screens. It IB also of interest to note that this type of screen the picking is cairled right out on the screen surface, thus dispensing with any drop, which otherwise would oc- cur between screen and picking ta- ble, and consequent coal breakage, The capacity .of this screen Is to be one thousand tons in eight coal to be marketed in three different grades. Orders have also been plac ed withvthe Canadian General Elec- tric Company, ;ot' Calgary, fCT a gen- erator and- motors, the first unit to he 100 k.w. capacity. This generator will be placed in the central power station, and will provide the' power for drivin gthe tipple, and mine fan, and will also provide the means'of lighting up The above equipment will be in- stalled within the next 90 days, and the meantime extensive develop- ment work is going on in the under- ground workings, to cope with the greater tonnage that 'will be shipp'orf. Thus will Burmis boast of one' of the best laid out and most efficient systems of mechanical equipment in Western Canada.
