Lake Tapps to Furnish Much
Electrical Current.
THREE YEARS TO COMPLETE
Vacific Coast Power Company, an
Eastern Concern, to Develop 100,
000 and 103,000 Horsepower.
Line Longest in the West.
TACOMA. "Wash., May 28. (Special.)
Although very few persons other
than those directly engaged In the
work know anything about it, the
largest hydro-electric power plant in
the -world, its builders declare, is be
ing built at Lake Tapps, this county.
by the Pacific Coast Power Company,
a Stone & Webster, Boston, corporation.
It contemplates tihe delivery of Lake
Tapps current to Seattle. Tacoma and
Portland. '
Active construction has been under
way since March 1, the Stone & Web
Bter Engineering Corporation now lav
ing seven construction camps, over 1100
laborers and 40 four-horse teams at
work. The camps are strung along the
foothills of the Cascades from Dier
Inger to Buckley.
The Pacific Coast Power Company's
plant will develop between 100,000 and
108,000 horsepower. It is due to be
completed late In 1912 or early in 1913,
at an estimated cost of $3,500,000.
Xew Principle Being Worked Out.
An entirely new principle in water
power utilization is being worked out
in this project. Current will be gen
erated on the valley floor, almost at
sea. level, from a huge storage reser
voit supplied by the White River and
a chain of mountain-fed lakes. The
plant will occupy the site of the Dier
lnger schoolhouse and will stand al
most in the center of the Puyallup Val
ley, less than four miles from Sumner,
14 miles from Tacoma, not much far
ther from Seattle and within a stone's
throw of the main line east of the
Northern Pacific railroad.
In the event the company seeks to
reach Portland, which is understood
to be one of its intentions, the trans
mission line will be the longest in the
West, and would be impossible but for
recent advances in the knowledge of
transmitting electrical energy at high
pressure without disastrous line loss
en route, say engineers interested.
At the point where the reservoir
will deliver water to the big turbines
the elevation is not over 75 feet above
eea level, yet the water will have an
anorsnr-creatlng fall of almost 500 feet.
through penstocks nine feet in diameter
at one end and narrowing to four
inches In diameter where the water
srtlkes the turbines.
Instead of one dam creating a res
ervoir, there will be 15 one at the
mouth of every ravine opening into
the lake region between the town of
Buckley and the foot of Lake Tapps.
The White River will be diverted near
Buckley. After passing through the
power-house, the water will flow into
the Stuck River, which empties into
the Puyallup.
According to .engineers and ranch
ers. Lake Tapps and Lake Kelley ilo
not vary an inch in their level the
year around, no matter how dry the
season. The Teservoir will store 20,
000,000 gallons of water. When com-'
pleted, the levels of Lake Tapps and
Lake Kelley -will be raised 35 feet.
In delivering water to the penstocks
a canal 94 feet deep will be excavated
westward from the foot of Lake Tapps
for about half a mile. This canal will
deliver into a tunnel 1400 feet long, to
be excavated through the valley wall,
its west portal being just above the
power-house and about 500 feet above
the turbines.
Since work began, the Northern Pa
cific has built a switch to the wall
of the valley, from which point the
power company has constructed a 2000
foot incline tramway at a grade of 25
degrees to the top of the hill 500 feet
above. It was on this inclined railway
that a car got away May 20 and four
men rode to aerrible death, as told
in me press dispatches.
Electric Power to Be Used.
Donkey engines are being used to
haul supplies up this inclined railway,
but electric power is to be used in the
near future. From the top of the hill
a standard-gauge railway has been
built on piling across ravines and dead
lake bottoms to the foot of Lake Tapps.
Powder, supplies, timbers, etc., are now
hauled in by team, but in the near fu
ture will be taken in by the Northern
Pacific and delivered to the foot of the
inclined railway.
Preliminary work on the big project
has proceeded quietly yet persistently,
and the courts have not been sought
to condemn any land or rights of way
needed, the company . in every ease
dealing directly with individual own
ers and paying the best price it could
get. thus avoiding delays due to liti
gation and disputes.
Pierce County has just completed
surveys for a new road, to be known
as the Daniels road, between Sumner
and Lake Tapps," which will make the
reservoir and surrounding country
more accessible. The main offices of
the project engineers are at Dieringer
station. ,
Lost Boy Found Nearly Dead.
NEWPORT, Or., May 27. The 11-year-old
adopted son of W. T. Crocker,
lost Wednesday morning near Wald
port, was found late last evening by
Mr. Pankey, one of the searching party,
in a dense spruce forest, through which
the lad had .wandered for about seven
miles from home. He was near the
head of a big stream half way between
Alsea and Yahats. When found, the
boy's clothing was torn in rags and
he was almost dead from hunger and
cold, and wet. He was out in a heavy
rain all Wednesday afternoon and
night, - : .

BIG STRAWBERRIES SHOWN
Clark County Growers Succeed AYith
Advanced Culture.
Strawberry culture in its' most ad
vanced development Is revealed through
some boxes of fruit which were
brought to The Oregonian office yes
terday. The berries were luscious speci
mens, 16 to 18 of which filled a full
sized box. These were grown by C. O.
Webster and H D. Sill on the nine
acre fruit farm. Fruitacres, near Fish
er's Landing, Clark County, Washing
ton. The berries were firm and richly
colored.
Mr. Sill and Mr. Websterhave bad

of strawberries, two acres of black
berries, three acres of Concord grapes'
and an acre of apples. The remaining
acre is given to the home and a small
vegetable garden.

SYMPATHY COSTS $50
Pica of Trespasser in Another's
Home Gets Hard Reception.
Forced to jump from a window to
escape an irate husband, restrained by
police officers from more or less hesi
tant attempts to take his own life, Joe
Dixon reached the culmination of his
misadventures yesterday when Judge
Bennett fined him $50 on a charge of
trespassing-. Dixon is a strawberry
peddler who has been paying frequent
visits to the home of Ed Schmeer, a
restaurant-keeper with a place of busi
ness on Fourth street.
Dixon aserts that he has -been led to
the Schmeer home through sympathy
for the wife, who, he says, is not well
treated by her husband. Schmeer has
repeatedly warned him to keep away,
but to no effect.
Friday afternoon Schmeer, suspecting-
that Dixon was trespassing- again,
went home, taking a friend with him.
Me stationed the companion at one
door and entered at the other.' Dixon
then made a hurried exit at the win
dow. He explained to the court that
he decamped in haste because he did
not wish to see the woman whipped.
When taken to the Police Station,
Dixon was in a desperate frame of
mind. He first pretended to be suffer
ing from morphine poisoning, then
claimed to have eaten a letter, and
finally was forcibly restrained from
eating a piece of , broken botle.
DEATH SENTENCE PASSED
"Drunk" Told He Must Hang if He
Returns to Portland.
For the first time in the history of
the Municipal Court, the death penalty
was pronounced yesterday by Judge
Bennett. John Caron, charged with
being drunk, was sentenced to hang by
the neck until dead. The execution of
the sentence was suspended, however,
during good behavior.
Caron, who has been In court before,
told the Judge that he wanted a chance
to get out of town and go to Astoria.
He wept as he made protestations of
his intention to lead a better life.
"If I come back again. Judge, I don't
care if you ha:ig me." he said.
"Very well," replied Judge Bennett,
"you may go; but remember, if you
are found here again, hanging is the
penalty that you have pronounced
upon yourself . .

Ready to Depart for

GRANDEURS IMPRESS THEM
Scenic Wonders and Jndian Life
Entertain Daring "Wait for Steam
er Foot of Peat to Be Reached
July 1 Prior Ascent Doubted.
BY C. K. RITSiC LEADER OF MAZAMA
EXPEDITION" TO MT. M'KINLET.
PORT GRAHAM, Alaska. May 1J. Sum
mer life for the Port Graham native is
one Joyous round of fishing and clam
digging, interrupted by an occasional Job
of unloading or loading vessels.
Fine halibut are caught in the bay
and there are many other species of salt
water fish. The "clams are of enormous
size and the supply seems inexhaustible.
The natives are a good-natured, honest
lot, apparently more cleanly than soma
of the Indians farther south. A kind
word or an encouraging look never fails ;
to bring an expansive grin to the face of
one of the little urchins. Life for them
must be hard Indeed, in the "Winter, how
ever, and the mystery is how they man
age to live at all. vrhey are all excel
lent hunters and are, perhaps among
the finest of the world's small craft
seamen. Formerly they went to sea hi
large parties in search of the great seat .
otter; but these animals are said to have
become scarce along the Alaskan coast
although occasionally the Indians still
make profitable kills. A good sea otter
skin will net the lucky captor $250 or $300.
Natives Born' Into Church.
There is a large village of natives at
English Bay, five miles from Port Gra
ham. A- priest of the Greek Church re
sides there. All of the natives are born
into that church, and the priests are said
to get as high as 30 per cent of their
total earnings.
Coal abounds In the vicinity of Cook's
Inlet. A few miles from here the In
dians gather it from the beach, when the
tide is low and sell it for $4 per ton.
It is of fine quality, and remarkably
clean. One may handle it without soiling
the hands.
The United States Geodetic Survey
steamer Patterson makes this her Sum
mer headquarters. There are also two
or three other survey steamers along the
coast that occasionally call here, so that
at times the harbor has the appearance
of being a metropolitan port.
One of the very interesting features of
this place is the great volcanoes across
the inlet. We have as splendid view of
mighty Iliamna, with its rugged preci
pices and huge crevasses. At times great
volumes of smoke and steam may be seen
rising from its craters. Its weird, lonely
mystery has appealed to us strongly and
unless we are surfeited with mountain
climbing on the Mount McKlnley trip we
will be tempted to try its ascent on our
return to the coast.
Iliamna Rivals Chelan.
Lake Iliamna is described as being of
wonderful grandeur and beauty, and I am
inclined to think that here is a rival for
our own Dake Chelan.
Every night the sun sets In gor
geous splendor behind the snowy
range beyond the inlet. Everything
speaks in eloquent language of the tre
mendous scale upon which this country
is built. Surely here may be found the
ne plus ultra for the lover of the
sublime.
Alaska is full of big-hearted white
men, and one of the whitest, biggest
hearted that we have found is J. W.
Alley, who conducts a general mer
chandise store at Port Graham. By his
hospitality to the Mazama Mount Mc
Kinley expedition he has won a last
ing place in our memories.
Mr. Erskine. general manager of the
Alaska Commercial Company,- is here
and will accompany us as far as
Susitna. He has expressed himself as
much interested in the expedition and
as willing to do everything in his
power to aid us. Through his cour
tesy we were allowed to view a mag
nificent collection of furs silver fox,
red fox, marten, lynx, ermine, etc. One
fine silver fox skin is said to be worth)
$760.
Isolation Cost Woman Life.
A woman by the name of Watson
died on the steamer Tyonlc here today.
She had been brought from the interior,
part way by dog team, in the hope of
getting to medical treatment, but suc
cumbed before aid could be reached.
Her last days were spent far from the
tender ministrations' of yiembers of her
own sex. Such is the merciless rigor
of this far north country.
Parker-Brown Party to Join.
Tomorrow or next day the steamer
Portland will arrive, probably bring
ing the Parker-Brown Mount McKin
ley party. There is a prospect of that
party and our own being thrown to
gether for the Journey up the inlet,
and perhaps we will be in close prox
imity during a large party of the Jour
ney up the Susitna. So far as the
Mazama expedition is concerned there
will be nothing but friendly rivalry.
We are going to do our utmost to beat
them to the summit of Mount McKin
ley, but should they be ahead of us to
the top, we hope to be first to offer
our congratulations.
Opinion Against Cook.
Alaskans seem to be divided In
opinion regarding the reported success
of the Fairbanks party, although they
are unanimous in the opinion that Dr.
Cook did not make the ascent of the
great peak.
So soon as the Portland arrives tire
Tyonic will take us to Beluga, where
we will transfer to the river steamer
Alice for the trip up the Susitna as
soon as the ice will admit of our go
ing. We now hope to reach the foot
of Mount McKlnley by the latter part
of June or the first of July. -
