Empire Day a Great Success
at Ingram Bridge
Ingram Bridge - Kettle Valley Celebration of May 24th was one of the-
greatest successess recorded in the
history of the celebration. The unsettled condition of the weather in the
morning did not reduce the crowd as
a record attendance was made. In the
afternoon the sky cleared and the
children's sports, basketball, and baseball games were keenly contested under
the bright sunshine.
The impressive ceremony at the
Monument was the outstanding feature
of the-clay, Scoutmaster R. D. Kerr
and the Boy Scouts headed by John
Fawnes with the bagpipes paraded at
the Monument before the opening
formalities. Mr. Kerr as chairman
called on Rev. E. A. St. G. Smyth for
the commencement prayer, after which
Major R. Gray delivered an appropriate
address, followed by the singing of
God Save The King. Before dispersing beautiful wreath were placed
around the Memorial.
Great interest was taken in the
basketball games, Greenwood having
and easy victory over Midway and in
the final they lost out to Rock Creek
by a close s'core.
Midway and Beaverdell gave their
spectators many thrills in their very
interesting game of baseball. The
score was 1-1 until the seventh inning
when Midway'made a great spurt and
added four runs in the last half of this
inning. Beaverdell came back strong
in the 8th but their smooth working
opponents kept the score down, Beaver-
delL only being able to notch one more
run. Midway increased their lead by
one in. the 8th and won the. game
by 6 to 2.
The enjoyable day was brought to
a close b3r a graud dance in Riverside
Hall at which an extra large and jolly
crowd attended and kept things lively
until an early hour. Bush's melody

reputation by supplying "excellent

New Mining Regulations
Regulations designed to provide
still greater measure of protection for,
workmen in the metalliferous mines
of the province have just been approved and promolgated by Hon.
William Sloan, provincial secretary
and minister of mines. These new
regulations cover every phase of the
storing, handling, and use of explosives in the metal mines of British
Columbia. Hereafter, none but
properly qualified men holding certificates will be permitted to handle
powder and conduct blasting operations.
Under the   new regulations it is
provided that every man handling explosives must undergo an examination
by a mines inspector and  hold a certificate from that official indicating that
he   is   possessed   of   the   necessary
qualifications.  Provisional certificates
may be issued by the Superintendent
of the mine for a period  not exceeding ninety days, or until the next visit
of the inspector of the district who
will re-examine the man  and  assure
himself of his qualifications.    Heretofore,  practically   any   worker   has
been allowed  to handle and use explosives without restriction.    Under
the new system now being brought
into   effect all  responsibility for the
proper use and handling of explosives
rests upon the man to whom the certificate is issued.    It is his duty to see
that the magazines in  which  the explosives are'stored are properly constructed,   in   accordance    with   the
regulations  and   satisfactory   to   the
mines inspector; that a  supply sufficient for not more than twenty-four
hours is allowed, underground;   that
no naked lights shall be taken into
any magazine or   place   where ex-r
plosives are kept and,  in general, see
that the regulations are properly lived _
up to.    All explosives used . in the/
mine must be labelled with the date7?J|
of manufacture;   it is prohibited' to"""''
convey    blasting-caps    and blastingr
powder together into the mine; restric-'
tions are placed upon the thawing of',
explosives to the end that, greater protection, to the workers may-be given
ner,   and,  in  fact,  every phase  of"
blasting operations is covered.
While the -regulations call   for a'
certificate being held by a person conducting blasting operations,  it is provided that a prospector having charge -
of not more than twelve  workmen
and being the possessor of a special
permit, authorizing him to carry on'1
blasting operations forthe purpose of
quarrying, trench-cutting and general
surface prospecting,   issued  by   the
Inspector of Mines for the district in
which such prospector is at the time
operations without being -the holder of
a certificate required under the regulations. ���"   "     ''   "W-" '
The applicant for a permanent
blasting certificate'must produce satisfactory proof that he is properly
qualified to conduct blasting operations.

On A Gallon Of Gas
This  Wonderful  Age c
Recently within the short space of one week two exploration'parlies eross-
nl. the North PoU- without mishap ami hi comparative comfort,-Urns realizing
what has been the iinibilion oi' daring and adventurous men for centuries.
Their aelilevemeals \vere rondeml possible by Ihu use of the air routes ln-
Hteiul of by ship through, llie Icebound waters of the Arctic seas.
Daily -coinniunlcalion is maintained between London and Paris by air-
(ships carrying passengers and freight, the, time schedules being as'regular
as those oi" the best managed railways, and, a few weeks ago the trip from
London to Paris was made In ninety minutes by an airplane carrying a score
'of passengers and several ions of express freight.
Throughout large sections of the" United Stales; mail is uow transported
by airplanes with, the result thai; important letters are delivered thousands
of miles away within a few'hours of mailing, whereas formerly days were,
necessary for their despatch. .Regular mail services by air are now (established and niaintuineil right across ^Ite continent, and lho number of such
routes is increasing every year.       - -
Within-the short span of one generation the horse and buggy -has been
superseded, by the "automobile wiih its small, compact internal combustion
.gasoline engine, as a means .of conveyance on our highways,, and a day's
journey-of-;i few years ago ls now ouly a matter of hours, or even minutes,
and hundreds of thousands of people who never dreamed of keeping a horso
'ami buggy now have Iheir horseless carriages.
When the electric telegraph, the telephone, and -finally-the' trans-Atlantic
cable came into operation most people felt thai the last word in rapid communication had been written, and now almost overnight*Ms come thc.marvellous development of radio whereby the mosl .remote,.and inaccessible places )u
the world can be kept in constant touch Avith centres of population aud activity. The successful flights over the North Pole were known, to lhe world
within a few hours. No longer are ships at sea isolated between, ports, and
���oue.iu distress, can call others to iLs assistance just as a sick person in a city
���can summon his doctor by telephone; .
Photographs of scenes in.connection with the great British strike were
printed In-New York papers the following day, transmitted across the Atlantic by radio, and even on those Western prairies these pictures Were re-
���jiroducd within three or four days whereas last year such pictures'" would not
"lliave.been available here for two weeks or more.
In another way lime and distance aud cost of operation are being reduc-
��d in the West through the introduction of oil-electric ears on our steam railways, thereby also eliminating the smoke aud other discomforts o'f- travel. *
- For centuries the enormous powers in.our groat rivers, cataracts and
���falls have been pure waste because unutilized. Now this cheapest of all
Scnown sources of power Is being harnessed the world over and placed at man's
disposal, with the; result that not in. cities alone- but in the rural home the
���'benefits of electric,light, power and heat are available, while all industry has
���entered.upon .a new era of expansion. ���������.-,;W .*
Within the memory of people, still living, the "tallow candle has .".given .vfiy.

finest lectures, .the best* music, lhe current news ot" th'e-day is carried by radio
into the humblest and most isolated home, and it'.does;-not require much im-
.agination to foresee thai af no'.distant date people everywhere will be able to
witness as well as hear these far distant occurrences.
Jules Verne's flights or fancy in "Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the
Sea" and'"Around the World in Eightr Days" are today accepted facts and
.almost everyday happening. _������.
Pessimists there still.are who insist thaf-fhe world is becoming worse and
not better, .that mankind is headed for. destruction, that with increase of popu-
, laion he world will not be capable'of producing enough food to sustain life,
' thai.with* our prodigal use of fuel these resources will become, exhausted and
the. race will freeze to death, and so on 'and. so forth. Such croakers there
always have been, and probably always wiU be, hut their dire predictions always fail to be realized
Car is Said to Travel Twice as Far on
a  Concrete  Road Than  a  Dirt
Road    on    SSme    Ga9
Tlie country-wide' improvement lu
public highways In the United States
and Eastern Canada, has worked a^
remarkable increase in-..'automotive
gasoline mileage.
It Is said lhat a gallon-of gas car-
I'les an automobile 50 per cent, farther ou a concrete road than on a
gravel road and twice as far as on a
dirt road.
Thus tho character of tho highway
has a directTind vital bearing on gasoline mileage.  ,
Other factors that bear dlioctly on
gasoline mileage are efficient car-
burotiou, camshaft timing, valve size,
gear ratio, ratio of'power.-to weight,
cooling system and tire equipment.
Correct design and co-ordination of
these features increase the life of a
gallon of gas.

Has Gained Nothing _,
Germany Sees No Advantage In Recent
Treaty With Russia
Germany, with all the apparent
advantages, has gained nothing from
her formal and special intimacy with

Soviet Government���on economic conditions iu Russia are gloomier thau
ever. What thcy &ay of the failure of
Soviet export plans, the growing opposition of thc peasantry, the enforced constriction of Soviet industry, the
desperate expedients of a distracted
administration, and the infallible registration of theso facts iu the steady

Question Of International Law
If Empire Is At War' Every'Part"Is
Automatically Involved
The Sydney Evening News editorially states: "Mr. Woodswoitli, a Labor
member ior Winnipeg, wlio raised tlie
���Question that Canada should not be:
come involved, in empire wars, without deciding the questions at issue for
herself, overlooked the fact that by
international law when tho onipiro is
at war every part of it becomes automatically involved. It is n partnership and any partner can involvo the
others. The cJitent to which any��Do-
minlon participates is not a matter or
compulsion, but of popular will. If
Great Britain embarked upon a manifestly unjust war the response of tho
dominions would be feebler than if tho
issue were one which had a higher
moral warrant. It ls true that both
Britain and the dominions might bo
honestly'niistalten, but thc great point
Is that in tho ultimate analysis, the
basis of the empire is the assent ol its
peoples founded on their behalf iu its
beneficence - and its necessity as a
custodian of world power."

in a lucid manner by Major-General

Sir George is a native son of Toronto,

India lie in the security to the country and in the great- public Avorks,
railways, roads, telephones and canals

declared Sir George. ' '"The irrigation
system in the north of India has made
a AvondeiTul difference lo lhc life ot
the people. In the Punjab, for instance, the- acreage of irrigated land
hearing crops grown ancl matured entirely by irrigation is equal to all the
land uuder cultivation iu England. It

May Restore Ancient Legend
Faots-That Would Almost Prove Moon
~     Has Effect On Plants
The old belief, always scoffed" at by
scientists, wliich led some farmers,
religiously, to plant their crops in certain phrases of the moon, may yet receive some support. Some lime ago
scientists began to discover thai certain' living creatures, notably some
kinds of seaAveed and some speples of
ocean dwelling worms, possessed a
distinct lunar periodicity. They
fruited or bred or came to the surface
or did other quite definite things In
exact correspondence Avilli the phases
of the moon. II seemed almost as
though they had aii almanac.s Now
there has come to light another fact
that seems likely lo explain this one.
It has been found thai the kind of
light called polarized light, is more effective in certain of the chemical processes of life than is ordinary light.
Moonlight is partly polarized. If Is
composed in part of this same kind
of light Avhich scientists now" find
peculiar in its actions on living matter. -Possibly moonlight really docs
have a different effect on plants aud
animals than does sunlight decreased
to the same Intensity. This would
explain the apparent moon knowledge
of the sea Avorms and the sea Aveeds.
It would restore another ancient
legend of mankind to au honored place
among the truths ofobservation.

A Notable Record
British Columbia's mineral ('produc-
tiou for the year 1925 is valued officially
at $61,492,242. Iri 1924 the total value
Avas 348,704,604. This means that, there
.Avas an increase of $12,787,638, whicli,
��� incidentally, works out at-26.2 per
cent.���a notable record.
When production.'"'values just tipped
the $40,000,000 mark iri 1916, the peak
year of the Avar as far as mineral supplies from this Province were concerned, the total was regarded as one
that it would take a long tinie to pass.
That was the year of highest prices
'; ever paid and the sum received was no
-j. indication -whatever of volume production. But as soon as the country returned to a peaceful basis neAV develop-
- ment 'took place and normal prices returned. What, amount of work has
been done in the last few years is reflected in the value of the output for
1924 rand 1925, the most pleasing feature
being- the enormous^comparative increase during- the later year over the
former aud, still more so, Avhen values
'are taken into full consideration, over
the great year of 1916.
The final-report for 1925 which has
just been published is an excellent
|;__ form of advertising- for British Columbia. It assures the outside investor
that there is plenty of opportunity "for
His money to AvorlTwith^the^prospect'of
good return here.
