There arc two busy spots in ttie city these days-the car barns and the city power station on the river bottom. Here the forces of men at work ate bending all their energies toward getting tlie machinery in place lieiore (Jet. 19, so that no breakdown will n)ar liie biggest week in the history of the city. Work was .starlwl ye.sterday in putting tlic roof on the car barns wliich arc 200 feel by 8.5 feet. The trackB are also being put in and in a couple of days the repair pit m the main part of tho barn will be ready tor use. The e.v|)'erts are also pulling iu place t.lm large motor generator set which is looked to to carry the street car system during Dry-Farming Congress week, when the load will he irfuch heavier than it was even during fair week. .Supl. livid is determined that there shall be no breakdown if there is any possibility of preventing, it.

The engine for this mracbine is being installed' nnd the large generator is on the road and will arrive here on .Saturday and Sunday, giving almost two weeks in which to put it in place. All the new boilers are in place and ready for use as soon as needed lo drive the turbo-generator. When con-structioi/ work is completed Leth-bridge will-have one of the finest power stations in the west, completely fire-proof, CApable of producing 3000 horse power, and worth very close to half a million dollars.

Mi Victoria, B.C., Oct. ."!.-Tlie Duclicss nnd I'rlncesB Patricia spoke dellghled-ly last ovenlng of their visit to the logging camp yesterday. After motoring thirty miles, (hey were carried up the iiiuuiitaln side the last two and a half miles, before reaching the camp, by a specially constructed railway. They saw huge trees cut down, and admired Immensely the manner in which they were handled. The loggers were nervous and shy, when they had been told that tholr Koyal Highnesses wore to visit the cimp. and they were greatly at a loss to know how they should address royalty. Hut iu a very short time tho unaffected friendliness ot tho Ducheas and the Princess put tho men at their ease, and soon they were vle-ing with one another in Imparting in formation about logging Qperations to their Royal llighuesses, who were particularly interested In watching the great logs go down the steep slide to the river below, which flows to tlie sawmill. At noon their Royal Highnesses asked to have precisely the same fare as the loggers, and enjoyed their luncheon, which included venison and loganberries, the latter declared deli clous by tho Princess. The Duchess and 1-Tincess, in taking leave of the loggers, shook hands with them all, and were enthusiastically cheered.
