OUR WATER-POWER
RESOURCES.
SIR.—Since, by the ventilation of the
Crowley's appointment, to "The Daily
Mail" is due the credit of drawing the
attention of engineers anew to the vast
water power resources of this State, and
their development possibilities if properly
utilised, perhaps you will kindly permit
me to offer a little advice to all those
who are really concerned in Queensland's
welfare.
Engineers in any part of the world
men, who have no time for trivialities,
but are trained to surmount difficulties
that would appal the ordinary intellect.
To such men I would say, "Rightly or
wrongly, the appointment has been made,
let it go at that." And no matter what
our private opinion of this man may be,
let us see to it that the data he is paid
to produce is made of value to the coun-
try. Let the engineers take steps to
assure themselves the Government is in
earnest in seeking for a means of utilis-
ing the country's natural resources, and,
if satisfied, call a meeting through their
society of a selected body of men of
trained intellect from the ranks of en-
gineers, surveyors, and financiers, for full
discussion.
The water power of this country is
enormous, although the casual and un-
to be so judging by the sluggish, low-
lying rivers, streams, and creeks, he is
accustomed to see near to the coastline;
but, in the hands of a combined body
such as I have suggested, there is more
actual wealth in our watercourses than
ever has been brought out of the com-
bined gold mines of the Commonwealth.
The financing of any scheme that would
be really worthy of a country with such
a future would be a difficult matter if
attempted by the wrong men, because
Queensland is actually better known on
the London Stock Exchange and the
Paris Bourse than by our own Govern-
ment, and, known, is held in contempt
for the very frivolity and utter insta-
bility of her Government undertakings.
Nevertheless, let such a water power
scheme be placed before those centres as
that carried out in Mexico (a country
very similar to our own, where the water
is brought from 30 miles' distant,
through the hearts of mountains, across
valleys and canyons, and turned into
electric power that drives all tramcars,
railway trains, and factory machinery,
lights and warm streets and houses, and
is even used for the smallest cooking
apparatus, on account of the low cost
of power production), and, provided the
guarantees were acceptable, I have reason
for saying the money would be forth-
coming for a similar scheme for Brisbane
and Southern Queensland, although the
cost of the installation from start to
finish should be from £3,000,000 to
Can the Government see that such
works as this would go far towards re-
is the lure of the butchering and fish-
mongering muck-rake still too strong."
Yours, etc.,
R. K. BALCARRAS.
