This, question al ways interesting for  the light it ttirows.bn tlib piist liistory  of "the earth, has had many answers.  The latest is that of Dr. J.W. Spencer,  .who, from recent studies on the spot,  finds that the mean rate of recession  of .the 'falls 'at .present is 4.2.feet, per  year, and that this has been the rate  for approximately 227 years.  But owing to the fact tliat originally  the waters of Lake Erie only were discharged over the falls; giving but one-  fifteenth of the present water .supply,  the rate of recession was at first much  slower. A ..sudden widening .of the  gorge above Foster's Flat indicates the  position of the falls when the other  Great Lakes began to discharge into  Lake Erie.  From his data, Doctor- Spencer calculates the entire age of the falls at  39,000 years. The cutting, with the  full power of the four lakes, is estimated to have lasted 3500 years.  (Scientific American.)  It is not generally known  that the  British "railroads   carry   a far larger  number of passengers in a single year  than do those of the United States;  and this iu spite of the fact that the  aggregate mileage in Great Britain is  about 27,000 as   against over- 200,000  miles in  the United States.   A comparison of statistics for the year 1906,  unpublished in the reports of our Interstate Commerce Commission and of  the British Board of Trade, snow that  during the year 1906,-799,000,000 passengers were carried on all the railroads  of the United States and 1,210,000,000  passengers on  the railroads of 3Great  Britain. Now, the carrying of a billion  and a quarter  passengers   on   27,000  miles of load means a very much denser traffic than the carrying of 800,000,-  000 passengers over 200,000 miles  of  railroad.   Further imu*e, it will be admitted that the risks of accident are  proportional to the density of the traffic,   and. that,   on  two equally well-,  managed railroad systems,  we naturally expect to find that the greater-  number of accidents happen on   the  road with the denser traffic, or the one  carrying the larger number-of passengers per mile of track.  A comparison  of the statistics for  1906, however, shows that as far as the  United States and Groat Britain  are  concerned, the system with the denser  traffic/shows by far the smaller number of casualties.    It- is probably safe  to say that the surest test of safe railway operation is the number of collisions and derailments;  and we find  that during' the year named there were  239 such accidents in Great Britain as  against 13,455 in the-United States. In  tfiese. accidents  ^^pasSengers   were  killed and 631 in j ured I n Gr&at Bri tain,  .as sa-gairist 146 killed and 6,053 jnjured  in !th'e';United States.   The number of  employe-es:lcllled and injured in Great  Britain in train accidents was respectively 13 and 140, as against 879 killed  and 7,483 injured in the United7States.

First Annual Ball of Hedley  M. & M. Union, No. 161,  Proves To Be  How Work Progresses on V. V. & E.���������  Steam Shovel At Work on This  Side���������Some Subs Finish Up.  MOST SUCCESSFUL HELD THIS YEiR  Many Guests From Princeton and Keremeos���������Everybody Had a Good Time,  and All Went Off Without a Hitch.  in  M. J. HENF*Y,  3010 Westminster Road,      Vancouver.  The Keremeos Trumpet is making a  vigorous kick to have a little order  brought out of the chaos caused by ijl-  -*advised mail arr-ringements. We have  been told by parties from Keremeos  that outside mail which is received on  Saturday at Kerenieos Centre for persons who get- their mail at Keremeos  Station doesn't reach its destination  until Tuesday, and the two offices are  scarcely more than a mile apart. If  this be so, the Trumpet has ample  cause;for making a loud noise for this  is worse than the Greenwood-Pheonix  layout, and shows that the postal .arrangements of ..Yale:Cariboo a,re p-\,r-  titfulririy weak on the shbrVliaul.  Although the superior .safety x>f  .British railraad operation is due in  'large measure,'rib doubt,' to t'he higher  average of excellence -of the roadbed  and rolling s'fock���������- si considers! ble po'r-  tibfi of our railroad system berng^eyen  yet of the pioneer type���������tK^riu'secret  6f:the;dinfererice is to be.found in certain '.fundamental traits of national  ch'aracter. The .smooth and safe working of the British railroad is chiefly  due to the inbred cautiousness of the  employees; to their naturiii inclination  to remain for hiany years in the same  position, thereby acquiring thorough  familiarity with the conditions; and  lastly, and chiefly, to the excellence of  the railroad discipline. There can be  no doubt- that the prevalence of railway accidents in America is due in  large measure to the fluctuating, migratory character of the. labor. A  census of railway employees at any  given time would show that a considerable percentage of them are either-  new to their positions, or are contemplating a change in the near future.  No amount of natural intelligence and  alertness can give the Ainei-iean railroad man that familiarity with the  duties of his position which marks the  .British employee, who has probably  held his job for a dozen or fifteen  years past.  Even more serious, as a-predisposing  cause of railway accidents, js- tlie lamentable lack of discipline which is  becoming increasing manifest in these  days of labor union interference. This  has been carried to such a point, that  the officials of our railroads have no  longer that direct control of the employees which is absolutely essential  to the-maintenance of discipline. ^Until this condition of things has been  changed; it is hopeless to look for any  materiiU.reduction in the annual number of killed and wounded oh bur-  railroads.  The end of the lenten season, which  in Hedley has not as a rule been very  strictly observed, was marked by ;i  particularly successful social event in  the dance given by the Hedley Minors'  arrd Millmen's Union on Easter Monday in Fraternity hall as their first  annual ball.  Unlike most, if not all of the dances  given in Hedley during the winter, the  Union were not so precipitate in their  actions and took ample time to perfect  all their arrangements. Capable committees were appointed to assist the  secretary, Mr. T������H. Rotherham. Many  hands lighten labor, and to this was  added the advantage of good organization. ,  A large number of invitations were  sent out for guests from a distance,  Princeton, Keremeos, Olalla and other-  points being included in the list. To  these invitations the responses were  general, and Keremeos and Princeton  did nobly in the quota which each furnished. The number present was at  least 115, and possibly a little over.  The Miners' Union hall Avas used for  the supper which was prepared by Mr-,  and Mi-s. V.J. Rose, of the. Hotel Hedley,'who got up a tidy repast, and a,  group of skiff ulenergetic ladies, iunorig  whom were Mesdames Rotherham,  Jones and Brass, with the assistance of  Union committee men, had things in  apple-pie brde'ry and left lib room for a  hitch. Three long tables--ran parallel  the entire length of the hall, giving  seating: capacity for 102 guests, and  theSeplaces were filled while probably:  a dozen or more remained over for a  second table.  7  The floor was in excellent condition.  All that was wanted in that respect  vvas a dozen or so more feet of it.   The  music, too, was superb, the musicians  Messrs. Simmons and Hill fairly excelling themselves in tlie inspiriting  character of the music furnished.   One  two-step medley"in particular with its  serio-cbriiiqUe blending bf classic adaptations and rag-time melody was invincible.     Miss Lowndes also played  for several dances after supper to give,  the 'musician's a rest,  and lier perfor*-  nrance was highly appreciated.  The guests 'from outside were :  Princeton ��������� Mrs.  Allison and   two  daughters, Mrs. Bell, Mrs. Writerriiari,  Miss Popple, Miss Scnbii, Miss? French,  Messrs. N. Huston, K. Summers, D. 6.  Day and. C. Carlson;  Keremeos���������Mr. and Mis. Kirby and  Miss Kirby, Mrs. 'Coleman, Miss Lowe,  Mrs. Stein, Miss teve'rts, Misses Lily  arid' May Smitherharrr, Mrs. J. F.  Royer, and Messrs. H. Tweddle, J. A.  Brown, W. Parsons, W. 6. Stevens,  M. B. Ewart, R. McCurdy,' H.'Richter,  J. Kast, D. Cook, Clias. Thomas' and  D. Leggatt.  Fifteen Mile���������Mrs. Bradshaw, Miss  Bradshaw and Mr. Geo. M. Gilbert.  To describe the dresses of the ladies  would take more space than is at omi  disposal and more skill imd discrimination than the mere man is required  to possess. Suffice it to say'that many  of the beautiful gowns worn were  handsome, rich and good, and it is to  be regretted that the hall Was not  larger, which would have.lessened the  risk'of having them torn, for this is  within the possibilities in a crowded  ball-room.'  Altogether the Miners' and Millmen's  Unibh are to be cdhgr'alulatecl oil the  unqualified success thiit has attended  this, their first effort to entertain their  friends. The \yhole affair', went off  without a. single untoward Circumstance to mar the pleasure of their  guests. Everybbcty liadfull opportunity to enjoy a pleasant evening;' and  On Saturday last the sloani shovel  got aci oss the temporary bridge and  they expected to have it at work again  on Tuesday on the cut which lies between Brushy Bottom and the river,  the deepest pint of which as stated  last week is shown by tfte1 grade stakes  to be 19 feet deep. From this cut the  dirt will be taken both waya to fill up  to the end of the bridge and to meet  the end of the grade on Budd's Brushy  Bottom contract.  Beyond that John Lane, who had  something over 40 stations, is woiking  on the other side of the river. Part of  Lane's work is also down below the  mouth of Ashnola creek, but there is  now very little of that to finish.  J. Budd has his Brushy Bottom contract pretty nearly finished. His whole  contract was something over 50 stations, and he expects to wind it all irp  before the end of April. He began  work in December.  At the north end of Brushy Bottom  the. station men who made a commencement there some time ago, hut  afterwards gave it up," have a good  face ready for the steam shovel to  work to, when it has finished up at the  lower end of Brushy Bottom.  Work has been commenced opposite  Bradshaw-'s by five "men who have  taken the job of doing about four or  five stations.  Between the Shelder ranch and the  lower end of smelter flat about half '  the distance shows completed grade,  which means possibly 75 per cent, or  more of the work done, for the portions completed and Hearing completion represent by all odds the heaviest  part of the work. All that will remain  when present stations now under construction are completed will be exr  tremely  light."  ..The rock cut will take about a month  and and a half or two months to finish  and the big gravel and hard-pan cut  3 list .'on the other side will be finished  in a little less than a month.      -  F. P. Howard is getting along better  with his contract and will finish up in  aboiifanother month.  Mr. J. A. Brown, editor of the Keremeos Trumpet came up with the load  from Keremeos on Monday evening  and made a pleasant call on the  Gazette.' The fraternal visit was thor-  appt;eciated in spite of the amazement  it seemed to cause some of his Kere-  meos friends. Mr. Brown is a good  newspaperman, and any little differ- *  ences of opinion on policy which are  discussed without personalities (like  our own little kettle of fish) serve only  to establish that .mutual respect which  renders the, entente cordiale all the  .more lasting. More assured than ever,  are we, that in Mr. Brown Keremeos  is fortunate in getting a man who will  look sifter its interests, and while  doing.so so, will uphold the dignity of  the fourth estate.  they all did so>  NOTES.  The weekly practices in the Miners'  Union hall during the winter produced  a large crop of terpsichorean debutantes that showed the benefit of' the  training they received.  "Daylight comes too hangnation  early now" was the only complaint  heard next day.  The Daly.Reduction Co.'s stamp mill  is always a matter of interest to outsiders, and various guests on this occasion availed themselves of the opportunity to go through the mill.  Mrs. Allison, of Princeton, who  caine witli her two daughters, was  among the Princeton guests, and had  many a warm handshake with old  friends of Hedley and keremeos.  The opportunity given Princeton  and Keremeos to meet and fraternize  'atHedley dances enabled two old-  timers to meet oh this occasion. These  were Mrs. Allison and Manuel Bar-cello  Sr.,both of whom are among the oldest  of the old-timers. Mr. Barcello was  hot at the ball, but happened to make  his yisit to the town at tliis time. ������2  THE   HEDIjEJY   GAZETTE,   APRIL 23, 1908..  ������&4l  *#���������  V . and  T S'miJkamejBi) Advertiser.        , *  ^Issued on '"huisd.ivt. bv the lli:nu:v Gax.k'-tw  ������������������*?'

The   voluminous  character of the report may be  judged from the   fact   that   it  makes    three    fair-sized    blue  books. The report proper makes  up the smallest of the .three and  is in itself a book of 275 pages.  The other two  contain all  the  evidence taken by the commission, making. 1387 pages with. 30  pages of index. Those who may  think that the commission were  unnecessarily    censorious-   will  have their minds  disabused  of  of that idea by digging into the  .evidence and  seeing the facts  elicited upon which censure was  based ; but the feature that will  strike most forcibly a reader of  the report to convince him that  the commission, instead of being  hostile   to   the   administration  were the very opposite of that,  they lost no opportunity, in the  questions which they asked, to  to bring  out   the good   side   as  well as the bad.    Because gross  irregularities, resulting in some  cases    from   incompetence  and  negligence and in others   from  downright dishonesty,    it does  noti'follow that the whole  civil  J&pulty which he ha,d inj-cecping  them when-they were being offered twice the, anjmmt of siil-  ar^by; mining companies. .In  tliis way the -Survey' l'nid lost  services of- men like McEvoy,  Ferrier, Tyrrell and Brummel,  all of whom now hold good positions at double 'their' former  salaries. Had the' commission  probed , a little deeper they  might have learned that some  of the best men still remaining  are now resisting tempting  offers to leave the service sis  well. Mr. Low also complained  that' the -Survey was undermanned for the work it was expected to do.  In the public printing and  stationery department the investigation of the commission  took a somewhat amusing turn,  when the beseigers became the  besieged and had to undergo'  onslaughts for move salary  from ���������deputation's of proof-readers, printers, press-men etc. It  was the immortal Hosea Bige-  low who -was made to say :  "Palsied the hand that forges yokes  At iny fat contracts squinting;  And withered be the nose that   -.'  pukes  Into the government printing."  but these at Ottawa instead of  breathing maledictions for interference, seized the opportunity '.to ask for more pay. One  of the questions asked made  Mr. Dawson, director of the  printing bureau, admit that it  is he who audits the advertising  accounts, but it was somewhat  disappointing that the commission didn't pursue the inquiry  to show how the advertising is  allotted, -n Both questions and  answers at this point lacked the  openness and spontaneity which  showed in Mr. Low's examination, and it looked as if sit this  point there was mutual recognition on the part of commission and witness that the ice  was getting si trifle .thin to go  out on Very far.

A fine  survey of the whole question of International Control of International Waters by Mr. C. If. Wilson is worth  careful perusal, embodying as it does  a long and careful study of the whole  question from both sides. A paper on  Guides and Their' Patrons, written  from a. guide's point of view by a veteran guide ought to lead to a 'controversy as exciting as that on dogs versus still hunters.

Some    of    the    departments  came through the   ordeal with  flying colors, and none appeared  to   better  advantage than   the  Geological Survey.     In this the  witness examined was Mr. A. P.  Low, director   of   the   Survey,  whose straight-forward answers  to the commission  showed that  he  was  conversant    with    the  working ofjiis clepa.tment from  end to end, and that tho public  were getting good  service for  the money expended.  One feature   which came out  was   the  superior-character of the men  employed   in   doing    scientific  work on the Survey and the dif-  nuniber ale apparent  from   the   opening paper to the closing page.

Miss Richards, who.has been the  guest of Mrs. Logsden for the past ten  days, returned to her home"in Loomis  on Satusday' l.-t-^t.  Mr-. L: G. MacIIarh'e, manager of the  Bank of B. N. A. spent Easter in Penticton where he went for dental treatment. He returned on Monday night  in time to take'in part of the Miners'  Union ball.  Ben Peterson, Hugh McKay and Al.  Faulkner, all of "West Fork, have  started from Greenwood for Buckley  Valley, intending to -ride' horseback  all the way% They expect to take a  month in making the trip.  Mrs. Bell and Mis. Waterman of  Princeton, remained over the day  after the dance, and took a trip up the  tramway to the Nickel Plate, mine accompanied by Mr. Conn. .They returned to Princeton ' by Wednesday's  stage.  R. J. Edmond's Easter display of  beef in his butcher shop was pretty  nice. Some choiceJ beeves that were  fed for him by Hiram Inglee looked  very inviting hanging up on their  several hooks. And -they are appreciated even more on the platter.  - What most of the men in Greenwood need more than a half holiday-  is a half days work each/week. It has  been all holiday for most of us for the  past six months, and a little relaxation in the form of hard work just now  wouldn't be'considered all hardship.  ���������Ledge.    ,  Dr. Jackson, dentist, of Penticton  will arrive in Hedley to-day and remain for a week or two. Dr. Jackson  practised successfully for "eighteen  years in Vancouver, and like other-  successful men now wants a climate  more to his liking, which has brought  hiin to the Okanagan.  The supense in reference to the immediate construction of the Midway &  Vernon railway-will be over next  week. If it is decided in. Victoria to  ^switch the subsidy from Vernon to  Penticton the road will be started,  right away and finished to the summit  this year.���������Ledge.  The G. P. R. have started putting  in a spur at Greenwood for the Mother-  Lode mine. W. P. Tiernev has the  contract which covers two .miles in  length with two ���������<��������� small trestles, ft'  .will give work for 100 men for three'  months. This does riot look as if the  Mother Lode people intend to keep  the mine shut down much longer.  J. W. Murphy who spent a couple  of months in Hedley this spring-left <v  .week. ago. for Saskatchewan. Mr.  Murphy was among the early purchasers of town lots in Hedley, and is  more convinced. than ever that the  town will not only retain but increase  the pronounced lead- which it took  five years ago as the industrial centre  of the Similkameen.  ���������������������������'... *,    .  The. Similkameen has risen over two  feet during the past two weeks, but  Twenty mile was slower in making a  start. This week, however, theie is a  little increase,' and both overflows'  from the D. It. Co.'s flume are going,  and all the wheels about the works are  humming. In the note, too, is that  latent purr ot reserve power held down  that owners of machinery plants always like to hear.  The ubiquitous prospector is again  in.evidence and overp day or so sees  outfits with saddle and pack horses  passing through town, some for the  nearer mountains of the Similkameen  and Hope, and others heading northward on the long trek for G. T. P  territory. ��������� Because some of these  sturdy fore-lopers are following the  track of the -wild goose, it does not  follow that' theiv's is by any means a,  wild goose chase.

Stevens  of Houghton, Michigan. The book  has J22S pages, octavo, bi.-eveier type,  being materially larger than before..  Tile author apologizes for- his inability  to revise the book thoroughly, explaining that fire, sickness and loss of five  months' valuable time prevented, but  the now volume contains about 130,000  words of new matter, equal in length  to three ordinary works of fiction, in  addition to the matter remaining un-i  changed from the, proceeding issue.  The   new   edition    of   the    Ooppei  Handbook contains 25 chapters, an in-  crease of nine, treating of copper un-'j  . der'the headings of History, Geology,  Chemistry Minerology,  Mining,,. Milling,  Concentrating, Hydro-metallurgy  Pyrometahuvgy,     Electrometallurgy,  -Alloys, Brands, Grades, Uses,  Substitutes, Terminology, Geography,' Copper Deposits, Copper Mines and Statistics.   The treatment given the subject  in 1228: pages is encyclopaedic in scope  but the  logical  and orderly arrangement of the great mass of facts presented, coupled  with  a   table of contents, full index  and alphebetical arrangement,   of    districts, "countries;,  "mines, minerals and glossary,  render  it possible to ascertain any given fact  With almost as much ease as a word is  found  in.  the dictionary.   This   is a  point of much  value to. readers, that  has been overlooked in  many- otherwise excellent works of reference.  The Copper Handbook is not intended to replace other works for tlie use  'of technical men, but it does supplement all other technical books on copper, while for- the average reader its  ���������hundreds of pages devoted to the  scientific and technical features of the  subject will be found to cover every  point of interest.

W. SHATFORD,  Secretary and flanager,  . position of scientific facts a groat aid,  as the highly technical language, used  in many of the best scientific works is  a serious stumbling-block in the path  of the man not technically trained,  who is forced to read such books With  a dictionary at his elbow.  In whatever light.the Copper Handbook is viewed, whether in describing  the thousands of different copper  mines, in all parts of the world* in the  plain descriptions of intricate processes of mining,milling smelting and  refining, or in the forty pages of sta-i  tistics covering the copper industry'of  the globe, in its various commercial  and financial aspects, the book "iu.u'st  stand as a monument' of patience arid  iabor, it being the unaided work of a  'single, man.  ".-; The book will be found of deep in-  terest   and  practical  value to every  man iuterested'in tne subject of copper, from whatever .stiiridpoitit, whether he be engaged in  the production  -or use of the metal, [oris an .investor  in copper shares.   The' descriptions of  ���������the mines are written without, fear or  ���������favor,  and   several   hundred  mining  companies, some very prominent, -.'are  .[handled without gloves, and in a manner that would justify no end of libel  suits were the author not sure of his  facts.     In   view  of  the exceedingly  iplain speaking in this book; in !A\-hieh  scoresiof companies are :termed frauds  and swindles, it seems .rather strange  that in the seven years of its publication   not   one  libel   suit  has been  brought into court, though many have  been threatened;   In -fact 'the nuthor-l  of the Cqpper Handbook has turned  the tables on  some of his critics by  placing a few of  them   in   prison  for  their frauds upon the investing public.  The price of the Copper Handbook  is five;dollars,   and   the   selling  plan  used is absolutely unique in  the book  trade.    For five years past-Mr. Stevens  has sent his book, all carriage charges  prepaid,without a,penny payment -in  advance, to any person in any part of  the world on one week's approval,Subject'to return    if   unsatisfactory.   It  speaks well for the   book   that only  about one copy in thirty-has  been- returned, and well for   the   honesty of  average human nature that only about  one man iu thirty keeping  the  book  has failed to pay for it.   On  these un-  usualterms anyoite interested in  cop-:  per can well afford to send to Mr. Stevens for a copy of the hew edition  of  the Copper Handbook.  THE  CEMETERY QUESTION.  J. Peck Mac-Swain took the back  trail'from Princeton, and is on'his way  to attend the-political conventions in;  Vernon where he expects to meet1  Duncan Boss arid arrange to have a  bill passed at Ottawa for the upholstering of railway ties in order to, wive,  perambulating poets and printers from  hardening of-- the pedal extremities^���������  Ledge. ���������  A Hedleyite who was down the river  the other day Was talking on things in  general :\vith Mr. Bradshaw,, of Fifteen  Mile. Mr. Bradshaw,has strong opinions and expresses them forcibly-���������a  trait with which the Gazette has a  great deal of sympathy. Speaking of  a cemetery Mr. Bradshaw ��������� said--that  Hedley's burial ground was a disgrace  to the' town!," a rid who is there among  us that will not say he is right? Most  of'lis have been used'to seeing a different state of affairs, and we shpuld.not  forget that outsiders have a right to  judge us as Mr. Bradshaw has done.  :";T^e'!bu.riaVjgi,<>u.h(ljV ;he qiijite truly  '���������says', ''has always! been regarded. a-  mong civilized people as .something  sacred," and to' lea-'vegrave-riioiinds  unprotected frorn Avanderihg cattle,  lar-geVdroves'of-'which'pass up and  down ihe valley every1 spring and fall,  is to subject.ourselves to judgment  that we have ho right to complain of  when we know it is, neither harsh nor  unjusti "God's Acre' is a name that  has come down .to us through long  centuries atid-it says very little for- our  boasted 20tli century civilization if we  continue year after year to shoyv ourselves less humane in this matter than  our fore-fathers were, and less hurnrine  than bur near neighbors the Indians,  whose burial ground a-few yards away  is protected by a fence.  It is not yet four years since the  first bm-btl took place in ��������� the ^present  location :at the Mower1 end of-smelter  flat. Some of the grave plots .Rave  been privately fenced, and friends of  other departed 'ones are preparing >to  do likewise, hut the majority of the  graves are still .unprotected. Once or  twice the Board of Trade have talked  of it, but some correspondence with  the Indian,agent was as far as it went.  Mr. M. K. Rodgers, ?it an' early stage,  was agreeable; to have apiece of ground  set aside, arid'in fact would have done  so at any .time if any board of cemetery  trustees or any individual had been  appointed to whom a trust deed could  have been made out, but this also  went by default.  In Mr-. Rodgers' offer-, if we were not  tiiistakeri, was the alternative also of  making the selection at some point up  the river. And a plot that seemed to  meet the .views of-several;''if it could  be obtained from the Indian Department, was that immediately West of  the hutte on Pinto Hat. That of course  was talked of when there were fewer-  graves than at present, but now the  matter of changing the location would  ineijn more-trouble, knd if the present  is,to;be;therpei-manerit location fbr the  tdwn s'teps Should biV tiikeii as spoil' as  possible for fencing and having the  necessary conveyance made.
