TO RIVAL THE SUN
To Turn Power It Produces Back On
Buffalo, N. l r .. May 23.—Niagara
Falls is to furnish its own power for
a battery of searchlights which will
throw back one and a third billions of
eandlepower of light upon herself. The
new illumination is scheduled for its in
auguration tomorrow night, and it is
expected that thousands will visit the
Falls to witness the wonderful sight.
Eighteen years ago W. d’Arey Ryan,
the eminent illuminating engiheer, made
Niagara something to be remembered
when he first illuminated the waterfalls
with searchlights. Hundreds of thou
sands of persons were attracted to the
Falls, and it was often necessary at night
to close Ihe bridges to the large crowds
which gathered for the display.
The illumination was continued for
thirty nights, the time stipulated before
the project was undertaken. Since then
the only illumination of the Fulls lias
been provided by small incandescent flood
ligbtsT which have proven irnsat isfactofy
and did not produce the spectacular ef
fects of the searchlights.
Under the terms of a contract recent
ly signed, the lighting of the Falls will
far surpass that of 1 DOT. More power
ful lights will be used, solar screens will
bo provided, and it will be possible to
have light drills with scintillating beams
of many hues radiating in all directions
—concentrated on one fall, distributed
oyer both, or sent into the heavens to
be visible for a distance of 100 miles un
der suitable atmospheric conditions.
International co-operation has made
the permanent lighting of the Falls pos
sible. The cities of Niugnra Falls in
New York state and Ontario, together
with the Victoria Park Commission and
the Hydro-Electric. Power Oommisssion
of Ontario, have joined in the financing
of this project . Thirty per cent, more
light will be used in the new installa
tion than in 1907.
The first attempt to illuminate the
Falls was in 1884 by Alfred Bierstatd.
who desired to exhibit the waters at
night to a party of English railroad men.
He placed a quantity of powder on the
ledge of rocks beneath the American
Falls. This display was effective, al
though some of the powder became damp
ened from the spray of the Falls and
did not ignite.
‘ The present installation of lights will
be on tlie Canadian side. The Hydro-
Electric Power Commission of Ontario
will donate the necessary electric power
to operate the lights for about four hours
every night. Goat Island and she rapids
above the Falls will be dimly illumi
nated with flood lights, as the 1907 dis
play showed that best results were ob
tained when those two beauty spots were
also lighted to some extent.
A special feature of the
program will be a reproduction of the
same light on Niagara Falls as was seen
during the recent eclipse of the sun.
All the Beautiful and spectacular effects
observed during the solar eclipse were
recorded by cameras and special labora
tory apparatus set up at the Falls. The
varying light intensities were accurate
ly recorded, and Mr. Ryan, the engineer
in charge of tlw project, declares he can
reproduce at toght with artificial lights
what tlie sun did for the first time in
more than one hundred years.
Mr. Ryan is regarded as probably the
foremost expert in America in the mat
ter of great illuminations. He was one
of the first to develop tlie flood lighting
system, one of his earliest experiments
being the illumination of the Singer
building tower in New York city. He
also directed the spectacular lighting ef
fects of the Rio de Janeiro Centennial

WE A SUCCESS
From Norway Comes Re-
Reports That Weather For
Flight Continues Favor
able for Arctic Explorers.
HAS FOUND POLE
Or At Least That He Has
Found Intermediate Piece
of Land On Which He Can
Make His Observations.
Oslo. Norway, May 28 (By the Associ
ated Press).—The Shipping Gazette re
ports that weather Condition for Capt.
Amundsen's polar flight continue very fav
orable. and there is every hope of tbe ex
pedition returning safely.
A dispatch to the paper sayß the tem
perature is now mild. The steamer Farm
is not in communication with the other
expedition ship Hobby. a» the latter is
not equipped witli wireless.
Those with Arctic experience or other
expert knowledge believe Amundsen's ab
sence indicated that he had landed at the
pole, or had discovered an intermediate
piece of land on which he had descended
In either case it is pointed out he
might experience difficulties in attempt
ing to again take the air.
Norwegian press comments agree in
tlie view that Amundsen must have land
ed at the Pole. The newspapers argue
that otherwise by now he would have re
turned to Spitzbergen.
Captain Otto Hverdrufi, Norwegian
Arctic explorer, said that he did not
think the discovery of new lands by
Amundsen was probably. He expressed
the opinion that there is no land about
the North Pole, recalling that Peary did
not see land around the region of the
88th degree north. He said in his opin
ion the polar basin in the regions of the
North Pole are made up of open waters
and drifts of ice.
Major (lunar Isaehen, another Arctic
explorer expressing a contrary view, said
lie would not exclude the possibility of
Amudseu discovering new laud.
