'The tall timbers materially retard the spring melting of snow," he asserted, "and should be preserved In every area." TUlfWBL IMPORTANT.

Endorsing the plan for the tapping of Burwell Lake for storage purposes, Mr. Smith, In his report to the Provincial Government In 1916, stressed the supreme Importance of using tho Burwell scheme. 'The situation Is an Ideal one for a reservoir, where water may be stored in large quantities and for long periods before being delivered to the city," he stated. "The purity of the water Is vouched for by Its source, and If a diversion dam was constructed at the crest of the Seymour Kalis, It would collect and divert as required lot only the waters liberated from tho proposed storage basins, but also the flow from the rest of the ivatorshed." Kxaminatton of the whole of the lake storage facilities on the different wa tersheds adjacent to the city of Van couver has conclusively shown that with a comparatively small enpendUur an abundant water supply can be secured, Mr. Smith declared.

LaROB SUPPLY POSSIBLE. "The total storage possible, accord ing to my Investigations, ts Imperial gallons, and that Is a con servative estimate," he asserted. "As- lilted by the low-water flow of several Hi reams It Is possible to store water In iiuillclcni quantities to serve a popula tion of people for a period of U.ree months, and the actual supply will then depend on the number ol mains and the capacity of the distribution system provided and the amount of money which the citizens are will ing to spend to ensure to themselves und their neighbors a proper and per manent supply.

the Canadian Pioneer rammed the Belgian steamer Alexandre and the latter cut across her bow. The pioneer bad her stem so badly crumpled that practically lier whole bow had to be rebuilt In the drydock at Antwerp. The Belgian vessel was struck amidships. ller hnll was crushed and water rushed Into the engine room, forcing her master to beach on tho river bank. After five weeks in Antwerp while undergoing repairs and loading cargo, the Pioneer again put to sea.

Soon after leaving the Channel she encountered heavy seas and strong winds. Several times before the canal was reached she was forced to fight through severe gales. LITTLE DAMAGH. Inuring one storm, mountainous waves swept the decks time after time and the crew feared she would founder, However, the staunch craft was" built to meet such contingencies, and weathered the gale with little damage. The after binnacle was the only part of the equipment to be dislodged from Its place.

C. Smith Was First to Make Comprehensive Survey of City's Watersheds. Says Seattle Timber Is Unnecessary to Development Of Future Supplies. Spent Three Years Investigating Seymour, Capilano And Lynn for Government. Tunnel to Bring Burwell Lake Into Use Is Recommended.

Concrete support for the waterworks development proposed by City KwkI-neer Charles and approved by the City Council In the bylaw for Jl, 250, 000, which will be voted on by the ratepayers on Saturday, Is given by Mr. William Chester Smith, B.A., C.E., A.M., Can. Soc. C.E. city engineer and utilities manager of Oshawa, and former engineer of the water rights branch of the Provincial Government, Victoria, who la a visitor in the city.

Mr. Hmlth, who spent three years compiling Information regarding the available sources of water supply for the "City of Greater Vancouver," submitted an exhaustive report to the Provincial Government In 1916, and many of the recommendations contained In It are being used today as Important arguments In support of the by-law which Is now before the citizens. PURCHASE TJWNECSSSAB.T. Purchase of the timber limits on the Seymour watershed, now held by Heattle interests, Is not neoessary for the development of the water supply, according to Mr. Smith, all the water required being easily obtained without spending a lot of money on buying the timber, in his opinion.

"This timber represents only 3 per cent, of the total on the watershed," Mr. Smith declared, "and It would be a very foolish proceeding on the part of the City Council to pay a big price for it. While Seymour Klver watershed Is the logical place to develop the water supply for the city, that can be done without buying the timber referred to, and the money required for the purchase would go a long way to cover the cost, of water storage development, which la necessary." SITUATION SERIOUS. Mr. Smith pointed out that In 1 91 8 when his report was submitted to the government, the situation regarding water wits serious.

"1 pointed out that there was a population of 208,720 then In Greater Vancouver and that the supply was hnrdb adequate, at that time," he statist "Now the population la hear the 250,000 and there has Ixmii no development of any -kind In the wuii Mipiily. of the lands on the va- THURSDAY ALL DAY SPECIALS of Choice Meats and Provisions It Tays to Shop Here MEATS RUMP ROASTS- SIRLOIN ROASTS T-BONE ROASTS Lb. me AYRSHIRE BACON 00 Sliced.

The Intention of the govern- jment radio department, It is said, Is to i eventually utilize Point llrey for shore commercial business and devote the powerful station at the Vancouver I Merchants' Kxchango to marine work entirely.

Constipation Hastens Old Age Internal Rathtnfi Adds Years of Health to Klilcrly People. "A man Is as old as his arteries" is an expression often used, and It sounds a note of warning, but also of hope, to those who heed It.

It may seem strange that there Is a directly beneficial connection between Internal bathing (with the new J. B. Cascade) and the condition of the artery walls, but It Is so. The act of regularly flushing the entire colon or lower bowel with warm water by this new scientific device makes It impossible for waste to lodge there. Constipation becomes a thing of the past.

The blood can not absorb Impurities, from that of all sources of poison a constipated colon. Tho result Is that the blooil stream becomes pure, It does no: lodge Injurious elements In the arter walls but, Instead, feeds ana strengthens them.
