forecast of the B. C Game Board
in announcing a tentative, calendar of dates for the hunting of
game birds. The Board invites
suggestions on changes in dates
from tbe game associations and

August 6 to offer suggestions and
criticisms.    These  will  be carefully' considered  before  final decision is made on the calendar.    -
Reports on grouse show that
despite the loss of these birds in
forest fires the breeding seasdn
has been one of the best- on
record, and grouse shooting
should be exceptionally good.

1 he  Canadian Senate
The much debated question ol re I'or na of the Senate ol' Caimila ls tu long
last co be I'l'iuovcd from the realm of academic discussion into tin- arena of
practical pulilics. If it could only be removed ai tlie same lime from pnrtiy.au
dispixi.iiinn.Uiir.; country would be Un- gainer.
Prior to ilie lecent prorogation of Parliament. Premier King announced
that ai (be next jo^sion the Government would introduce legislation having
for iu; object an apical to the British Parliament to so amend the British North
Amt ricii Ai-1 as lo confer on the House of Commons of Canada the same
measure of iiuihority and control over legislation initialed by that body as is
now injoyed b.\ the IJri��>,h House ol Commons.

Year niter ; oar lhe Lords liad nullified lhe efforts ol the Government of which
'Lloyd liCLtge was u nu'iiiber. and filially Ihe consent ol the Crown w.is obtained to a measure which pro\ ides thai if a liill passes the Commons three

Lords pass it or not. Slm-e ihe pa: sago or this Act, the I-Ioute of Lords has
not wieidi d Hie ave us formerly.
Pretni'-r King proposes ihat the Uritish Parliament sh.ill confer on thc
Canadian House of Coniniou-N the same authority as is now enjoyed by lhe
Briti-h ifousy of Commons. In oili-M' words, if a Bill passes the Canadian
Commons at three eonseouihv sections the Senate shall be powerless to prevent ii   becoming the law of  the  Dominion.
It will bi' seen, therefore, that the proposal is uot so much one of reform
cm  tli" Seaii'e as a curtailment ol  the veto powers of that body.
The t.ovcrnincni has been foieed to action by the rising tide of public
opinion !,.;ain.sl tho Htiloeiatic action of the Senate iu "killing" legislation

Produces Gold  From Mercury
German    Scientist-   Makes    Discovery
That Has  Puzzled  Alchemists
For Ages
Claiming to have realized one of
the wildest dreams in human history.
Dr. Adolf Millie, professor in the
CharloUeubuis. University of Engineering, announces he has discovered a
method I'or the ariificial production of
gold���and displays the proof of his
achievement.
The first, gold won by man through
the decomposition of mercury glistened in the middle of a small cup of precious, polished agate. In the view of
Mr. Meitlie, if represented materialization of a dream for which innumerable
alchemists have toiled and died in vain
from the days, of J.tibylon to recent
times.
Dr. Moh.he, in co-operation with his
assistant, Dr. IL Stounnreich, lias discovered that by lhe introduction of a
certain amount of energy I'rom the
outside, mercury undergoes decomposition, which results ln the production of gold aud helium. Hitherto,
it has been thought that mercury was
an unalterable piemeni.
Experiments with a so-called electric arc furnace filled with mercury,
according to Dr. Meithc, destroyed the
intrinsic stability of the mercury ancl
by a slow process caused its partial
decomposition into gold.
Although Pro! Melthe is of unquestioned authority in scientific
circles, lhe discovery seemed so incredible, even to him, that the experiment was repeated again and again,
always with' the same result. The
most careful analysis by Melthe ancl
other scientists, including Prof. Haber,
famous inventor of the process ior extracting nitrogen from the air, is said
to have established clearly the nature
of the product gained from the mercury.
While the disci very means a revolution in the world of science, its sig-
deei-dou of the House of Commons to make the soldiers' bonus permanent, i nificance at  present is-mainly seien-
aud in other ways mutilated legislation designed to assist Canada's returned
soldi- v.-.
Inasmuch as the Canadian Senate is wholly and absolutely beyond lhe
conlml of the people, and is probablj the most undemocratic legislative body
In the world today, showing 311 almost complete disregard for the wishes of
the people, it lias become an imperii Ike necessity that, if it is to continue
to cmM. its arbitrary us ' of llie \eu> power shall be restricted
While ii is a Libera' Coven.mem in Canada, as it was a Libera! Government in Greal Britain, which i-_ moving to curtail the veto power of tho Upper
Chamber, such action should not be made a party question nor a parlizan
Issue Thc Senate lias-mutilated and killed legislation passed by the Commons en the initiative of bolh Libert. 1 and Conservative Governments, and .the
party in opposition tod:'; may be the. victim of the irrusponsibililj of the
Senat" tomorrow. ' * -
lu _, democratic counlry llkf- Canada, ilie elected representatives of the
peoplo 211USI govern, and, unless sonic reasonable guarantee is provided that
fhe pi-ople's will shall pi-vji., tli�� people will eventually wipe the Second
Chamber'out of existence.
The Senate was dctisii'd I o, pic vide a check, a .safeguard, against hasty
Irg'.-dition b> the Commons oti a wave of popular but passing fen thusaisin, and'
to pro.ect   minorlffc*  againsf any aggression  or injustice by  ihe majority, j Etfeccs   of   Scle^7Discoveries ,0n
Bis' i; was never intended that the Senate should usurp the right of nullifying
the wh'i'c policy of the Commons and tlio Government of tlie country.
The proposal that legislation shall become effective if it passes the House
of Commons three timed is safe ana _,sine. it piovides adequate opportunity ior the feeling of llio counlry to be tested. If public opinion does not
suypoit the Commons, . h.n fact will bc made manifest, and.the legislation
will, be dropped or "satisfactorily amended.- But if in Unco sessions the
elected Representatives ol the people record their approval o< any Bill; it is
I'jirl: tple_to assume tha'. it represents the will of fhe people and should be-
eoui-'eftective. And no non-elected, life-appointed body should be allowed
lo prevent it. *
liflc. For the time being at least, it
possesses no economic value, because
the cost ol production, compared with
the infinitesimal amottut 01 gold produced, makes the process unprofitable.
Only long, additional research can
prove whether lhe discovery, aside
from its eno'-muis scientific importance, also has commercial possibilities.
Throughout Kurope, Prof. Heithe is
a renowned authority on astrophysics
and photo-chemistry. "He is Ihe inventor of the lionous tele-objective
for long distance photograph, a three
color printing process and other widely employed' scientific and industrial
processes.

Distance  Needed  To -
Stop Motor Cars
Table of Figures That Should .Be
Memorized By Drivers
Every motor-driver should know exactly the minimum distance within
which a car can be stopped when it is
travelling at different rates of speed.
And he should never forget that the
ratio between thc distance within
which it can be stopped and the rate
of speed at wliich it is going increases
wiih the rate of. speed. Thus,-'-when
the car is going at the rate of 30 miles
an hour, the distance it must go before it can be stopped is much greater than double the distance when It
is going at tlie rale of 15 miles.
If this fact were known and always
remembered, there would be .fewer
cases ot motor cars crashing through
closed gales and into moving trains at
level crossings.
In a bulletin isrued by the U.S. Interstate Commerce Commission there
is a table showing the distance requited to stop an average two-brake
motor car lravelllng-at various rates
ot speed on a good level road. This
table of distanc'-s, which follows,
should be memorized by every driver
of a motor car or truck:

Eyes Are Getting Weaker"
Modern Demand 'On Eye Has Increased Defective Vision ���
Many of us know that eyesight is
not what It uscd to be. It is certain
our own is not. Now the American
eyesight con'ser/ation council bears
us out in a statement that it is the
modern demand on the eye that has
overstrained -it: Too much glare in
some places and too much dimness
in other places, electric lights here
and darkness thrre, cause excessive
contrasts which eyes cannot stand
without injurious effecls. As a result
nine out of ten adults have defective
vision, and four out of every ten
school children add to the trouble by
contracting serious defects.    .
The United States national committee for the prevention of blindness
has issued a statement wherein eight

The Biilish Association for the Advancement'of Science is meeting in
Canada this year, and this "fact alone
should direct - attention' to' the debt
which tiie people of this country owe
lo the scientist. Canada has heen
i most generously endowed with natural
resources, but how to make use of
1 Iiese. - has _ been _ largely a problem
which the scientists have had to solve.
We have large areas of pulpwood,
but of what, use would It. be In the
manufacture, of paper had not the
scientist provided the means? The
making of paper u largely a chemical
problem, but mechanics also has an
important bearing. Taking woodpulp
in one end oil a machine and making
it into paper at tbe rate of up to 1,100
feel per minute requires engineering
ability  of the highest order.
Development of our wulerpowers
also represents a very high degree of
scientific and engineering ability.
Harnessing our falls and rapids and
convening the power thus created into
electric energy to provide our lighting
and power requirements, is an engineering'problem of the highest order,
while the use of this same energy for

result of measles and scarlet fever;
cross-eyes, which cau be corrected if

A reduction of 286,000,'0"00 bushels in
the wheat production of eleven of. the
leading producing countries ^of th'e
northern hemisphere, a3 compared
with last year's crop is -indicated in

the world crop will have 1,913,000.000
bushels of wheat this y-ear, as compared with 2,199,000,000 last year. A
large part of the reduction is due to
fhe smaller crop iu Canada.

During its life of nearly a third of

The Ledge has taken a very important part in the progress and
development of the Boundary, and
particularly the encouragement of

Don't be afraid to write letters to

Paying More Than
Legal Minimum Wage
Victoria, July 30���The annual
report of the Department of Labor
shows that throughout British
Columbia employers are paying
female workers considerably more
than the legal minimum wage.
The average weekly wage is $17.14,
while tbe minimum under the law
runs from $12.75 to $15.50. The
average weekly working hours 'of
women and girls is 43 31. Satisfaction is expressed by the Minister
of Labor, Hon. A. M. Manson,
over the better co-operation between employers and the Minimum
Wage Board.
According to figures given-out
by Hon. T. D. Pattullo, the timber
industry is steadily developing in
this province. For the first six
months of 1924 there was an increase of 15 per cent, in the amount
of timber scaled over tho total for
the corresponding period lasfe year.
The total for the half year ending
June 30 was over 1,300,000,000
board feet.
Now-that the government is assured of a working majority in the
Legislature, """announcement of
policies to be adopted.. is expected
at an early date Perhaps the
chief work to be undertaken is the
fighting of the freight rates issue
to a finish. Premier Oliver has received the endorsation of his cab-
inent in this regard and the battle
for the complete removal of all.
discriminatory rates under the
Crow's Nest Pass agreement on
eastbound freight, a reduction of
rates on westbound grain and
lower express rates.
