Herman C. Mergenthaler, the son of
Ottmar Mergenthaler, inventor of the
Mergenthaler typesetting machine,, is
quoted in a speech before the advertising staff of the New York Times as
Ottmar Mergenthaler was born in
Hatclitel.a small hamlet in the Kingdom of Wurttemberg, on May'11, 1845.
His father, Johann George Mergenthaler, ' was' a teacher in the public
Instead of becoming a teacher, the
boy Mergenthaler accepted an apprenticeship,, under.. the .brother  of   his
ste_-"-mother^a-Mr.,;1Ha-ilr, who'was; 'a
watch  and  clock maker.   * Iri  May,
1868, he began his apprenticeship and
applied himself to mastering the trade,
and shortly afterward was given the
task of keeping in repair the somewhat
rebellious village clock.    There    now
operates a-,Lintoype where its inventor
worked as an apprentice.
���   After   Mr.   Mergenthaler's  appren-,
ticeship expired, in the fall of 1872, he
sought America,4 where a son of his
master, August Hahl, had a shop for
electrical  appliances  at  Washington,
D.C.   He landed at Baltimore, Md.,.:in
October, 1872, at' the "age of 18, and
went to Washington, where he arrived
$30 in paper money.   He was still able
to follow his calling with his new connection, making electrical clocks and
special devices for. use in the United
States Signal Service.
Washington was at that time the
great centre ��� for all important inventors, and Mr. Mergenthaler came into
daily contact with them, and new
ideas furnished the topic of conversation. And so his firm became an experimental shop for new and untried
devices, and among others brought to
their attention was one called a writing machine.
The object of this machine' was to
produce by typewriting a print just
like that produced by or from printer's
type, the idea being to avoid the cost
of sticking type and to multiply the
work so made by the lithographing
process.;        '       �� ' '���".
Mr .Mergenthaler remodeled this
machine with fair results, but it was
later abandoned, due to difficulty encountered, in lithographing. The second, machine, known as the rotary
matrix machine, was unsuccessful, only
a few being built.
Band Machine
Mr. Mergenthaler changed his idea
again and built what he called a band
machine, producing, a matrix for one
line. These lines were assembled side
by side to form a stereotyp matrix.
Fair results were obtained, but the action was too slow. Then he ,built a
second band machine, but it was also
too slow for commercial use.
The present Linotype, referred to by
Thomas A. Edison as the "eighth wonder of the world," is a linecasting machine that makes possible the composing of every form of printed matter-
books, magazines, newspapers, letterheads, tickets, menus and so forth
from the simplest to the most involved, at a high rate of speed and in
clear-cut faces, newly cut for each occasion. And it,casts an entire line at
one time...    - - ;:;W. xyyy���"'.""'���
The first commercially successful
Lintoype was installed by the New
York. Triburie in July, 1886. At the
end of; 1926, 53,000 Lintoypes were in
use in sixty-three different countries,
producing correct composition in half
a hundred different languages. These"
include Syrian, Green, and even Chinese.
The Linotype has four principal divisions.
1. The magazines which contain the
2. The keyboard and its related
3. The casting mechanism.
.4. The distributing mechanism.
Wh^n  the Lintoype was  commer-1
daily introduced in 1886 it revolution- J
ized printing and abolished at one
stroke the troubles of individual movable type. It introduced the whole
line as a unit of composition, thus reducing the printer's labor to an'astonishing degree,
It gave the art the vast economy of
automatically and instantly producing,
by means of a keyboard, solid.lines of
composed and justified type to be used
and then melted down to be used over
again in the machine.  ���
However,  since  the  first  Linotype
composed the first newspaper, experimental  and  mechanical  departments
and inventors, who are life members
of the Mergenthaler Lintoype ��� Company., organization, .have -never;; ceased .
to'work on the Lintoype. *"''v""-' '������'���'
��� Everything    that   the   world   has'
learned in more than forty years of
machine composition is in the Linotype.   No. problem is evaded. Its makers never have to compromise. It contains no makeshifts.   Nothing is omitted from the Lintoype.
With a great deal of pride the editor
of The Greenwood Ledge announces
the installation of a new Model Five-
Lintoype. This mechanical marvel is
especially equipped with the necessary
type faces to enable us to serve efficiently those readers who depend on
our publication for enlightenmentand _
entertainment*rand'"who_patroriize our
job-printing. department.
Our Lintoype enables us to set by '
machine nearly all forms of composition that formerly necessitated tedious work by hand. Our plant is now
capable of turning out work with modern type faces.
This installation is a testimonial to*
the possibilities of Greenwood and vicinity. And that the good people of
the community are duly appreciative
ofVour efforts to serve them in all departments of the printing business to
the very best of our ability is manifested by the many complimentary remarks received from individual patrons since the arrival of, our new machine. -W*.'W..'_ iQ:���,*���.'.
: The accompanying illustration will
give our readers some idea of the marvelous mechanism of 'the Lintoype,
which composes the type which you
are now reading.
It has been our constant endeavor
to present the ideals and ambitions of
our constituents clearly and concisely
and to give the news without fear or
favor. We ..shall continue to devote
our talents "and resources to the purpose of helping our readers to a better
realization of the finer things of everyday existence. And our Linotype will
be of great help to us in the carrying
out of our purpose.

Ottawa Should Co-Operate
The Manitoba Court of Appeal lias declared ultra vires lhe"Manitoba
&ale of Shares. Act and the Municipal aud Public Utilities Board, insofar as
these enactments purport ln any way to control the sale of shares-iri that
Province o'f a Company incorporated under a Dominion charter. This
decision follows one by the Supreme Court of . Canada which, in effect,
decided that when'there is a conflict of authority between Provincial and
Dominion legislation, the latter prevails.
In other words, all that is necessary for slo'ck promoters to do in order
to get around the measures set up by the Provinces to protect their people
from being victimized, by unscrupulous promoters of doubtful-stocks-is for
them to secure incorporation at'Ottawa. Inasmuch as the Ottawa Government has provided no proper check upon tho slock selling operations o'f
Dominion incorporated companies, it means that they may do pretty much
as they please.
In v'ew of these -judgments, and the failure.as yet of the Ottawa Government la take action* as has been repeatedly urged by the Provinces, it is-
gratifying to note that Western Provincial Governments arc- again recommending thai this whole subject be-placed on.the agenda for llie Conference-
to bo held at Ottawa this Fall between representatives vof the Dominion and
the several Provincial Governments. Ottawa is being asked to supplement
'the legislation of.the Provinces by the enactment of legislation regulating,
the sale of shares and securities of Dominion companies.
The Ottawa Government should be just as keen to protect all the people
of Canada as the Governments of the Provinces are to protect their citizens,
and it is beyond the comprehension of-the average citizen to understand why
the Dominion has so consistently refused to*do so.
In this year ol Canada's Diamond Jubilee the people or Canada are being
urged to forget all' sectional' differences., and to emulate the .Fathers of-
Confederation in working unitedly to build up and strengthen the Dominion
as a national unit .Any causes ol' friction between the Federal Government
and thc Province is a source ol national weakness, making for disunion. It
any Province feels that Ottawa is not fully seconding tbeir efforts on behalf
of their people, the result "is to weaken Confederation and thai devotion ancl
loyally lo Canada wliich is so necessary.
In his Dominion Day message to lhe people of Canada, His Excellency the
Governor-General says: "When first I landed on these shores as His
Majesty's personal representative, in the first speech 1 made, I informed my
hearers lhal 1 should take 'co-operation' as my watchword during my-lifo Jn
this Dominion. That word Is the message I give to the people of Canada
today. I ask one and all, whatever tlicir origin or race, heartily to, co-operate Willi a common understanding and purpo'se in all that-'pertahis to ���'tho
well-being or all: proud of and loyal'lo their citizenship [of a great, and growing nation.",
Canada could hardly have a better national watchword, and in this
matter of regulation of the sale of shares ' and '-securities o'f Dominion
companies, il is high time the Ottawa Government reversed its attitude/and,
instead of denying the very reasonable requests- of the Provinces, proceeded
to wholeheartedly co-operate with them in the common interests o'f all. 'J'he
Provinces aro not asking the Dominion to abrogate any of its powers, but to
exercise them ln full co-operation with the''Provinces, rather-than, by neglect,
leaving the Provinces at ihe mercy of air and sundry who, in order-to got
around legiLiimite Provincial laws, obtain Dominion * ihcorp'oratoii and then
defy the Provinces.
This is not cc-operation on the part of-tho Dominion Government. It is
not an altitude that tends to create loyalty to Confederation. Persisted in,
It will weaken the national tie. Legitimate companies and promoters do not
seek lo evade Provincial control in this way; it is the doubtful stock-selling
proposition and the dishonest promoter who is being assisted because ot
Ottawa's refusal to join hands with the Provinces in the protection of alt the
people. '-..-
���11 is to be hoped that the authorities at Ottawa will catch the true spirit
of lhc Diamond Jubilee, put their house In order - hv this matter, and cooperate with thc Provinces. ���'.'���'��� ''*
Will Discuss World Population
Experts Going Into Subject at"Geneva
Conference This Summer
Has the world ' too   many   peoplo,
and, If so, what is to be done about
it? '
This question will be considered at
a World Population Conference at
Geneva from-Aug. 31 to Sept. 3. It
is the first conference of- its kind
ever to be held and will bring together biological, sociological and
statistical authorities who have gone
far into the study of the population
problem, but who have never assem"
bled at a common meeting table to
exchange their views and co-ordiuato
their knowledge.
An advance notice Issued by the
Advisory Council says:
"The Question or population growth
holds possibilities of menace to thc
future of civilization, and yet tho
world populaton problem is one of lhe
few great issues of today which havo
not been (lio subject of concerted international action."

Toronto Man Acquires Huge Porcelain
Once Broken by Napoleon
The last chapter of a long. and. romantic history concerning a vase,
smashed by Napoleon in a fit of rage,
has come with the purchase of the
huge porcelain by Robert C. Roy, Toronto. Tlie historic vase was purchased
in New York,.April 30, al an auction
to satisfy a judgment of ?3,200 alleged lo' be due to Miss Margaret Conway by Dr. Martha Jluson. Miss Conway was a nurse and sued the doctor
for tho money.
Dr. Ilusou valued the vase at ? 150,-
000, and had actually rejected an
offer of $20,000 for it, She tried to
forestall the sale of the vase, claiming proceedings relating to tho vase
was illegal, but was too late, and tho
Toronto man got it "for a song." The
large, graceful vase was made at the
Royal Pottery of Capo di Monte, near
Naples, and was perhaps made under
the supervision of ' King Ferdinand
LV. of Naples.
The vase became |he properly of
ihc Russian Empress. While terms
of peace between Franco and Austria
were being settled with Napoleon, the
famous French general, whose slar
was then in the ascendant, became
angry, said: "Vou refuse to accept,
our ultimatum. "War is declared ��� I
shall shatter your empire as 1 shatter this polsherd," and according lo
report, lie dashed the great porcelain
vase to the fireplace.
In 'IS37 Joseph Roueparle presented
the vase lo Adam David Logan, a
friend who was about lo marry a New
York society woman. 'J'he vase was
in turn passed to Dr. lluson 30 years
later, and then disposed of as mentioned by auction over the lawsuit for
.���53.200." The French Government and
two. famous United Stales collectors
have already opened .negotiations
with a view to securing the historic

Mystery of Science
Hundreds   of   Live   Clams   Found
Miles From Sea Coast
One of science's choice morsels of
mystery is believed lo have been uncovered when a bed of hundreds of
live clams was found 011-the side of
Scotia's bluff, twenty miles south of
Eureka, Cal., and about.the same distance inland from the Pacific ocean.
Workmen operating a steam shovel
on the Northwestern Pacific railroad,
biting with the shovel into tlie side
of the bluff, approximately 120 feet
above sea level and some eighty feet
above the Eel river, directly below,
traced a path through lhe biwalvftm
Those making the discovery said
llie clams did not resemble the fresh
water .variety, but were similar ato
the Tazor clams of salt water.

ArtificiarCotton -Feasible
Another Useful Product Can be Made
From Wood Pulp
Now that Canadians have become
quite accustomed to their, rayon silk
hosiery and underwear, It is time
chemistry furnished another startling
example of the multiplicity of useful
products which can be made from
wood pulp. This time it Is to be artificial cotton, if the prediction of Dr.
Harold Hibbert of McGill University,
comes true. Speaking at the Chemistry Convention recently he said:
"One method by which we can extend
the usefulness of our pulp is by substituting: it in Canada for cotton in all
Its forms. This Is being attempted by
the chemists of the Dominion -.today
md It is feasible. The successful substitutes of wood pulp for cotton would
benefit Canada In*many ways."-

Expedition   to   Explore   Centra
traiia for This  Purpose
An expedition organized by.tho na-'.
tional.. research council' of Australia
and the University of Sydney ana
aided by the Rockefeller Foundation
will shortly, enter the little explored
areas of.central Australia in an effort
to study its*--nomadic- aborigine- inhabitants wherever 'unaffected by com
tact with European/civilization. This
will be the first of a series of explorations in the interior of Australia.
The plans also include a survey of thc
islands of Papua, Now Guinea and
other mandated territories of the commonwealth.
The party will attempt to determine .tho' biological and- cultural
characteristics of these primitive peoplo who live in smalt huts in communities of 100 or less" and use_ as
food the animals and herbs and roots
close at hand. When the supply is
exhausted they abandon their settlement and move on to another place,
where the possibilities are bettor.

Pleads For Wider Education
University    Leaders    Should    Taokle
Problems of Nations Says
Sir Arthur Currie, president of the
���National Conference of Canadian
Universities, pleads for a wider field

problems of the nations. Govern
ments, he says, would resent interference, but they would likely accept
the consultative services of the conference. .
Sir Arthur touclici on a vital question in education. It is, in short, a
question which affects the very life

Were. Hihgly' Successful
Offensive  operations,- such as the

the Allied naval forces against. German submarines in  the World Wai
did more to keep tho English Channel open than- oilier efforts expended,
according to a report made  by the
Naval War College, "Nowporl. B.I., to
the officers of the U.S. fleet, following
llie joint manoeuvres with the ar,my,j
in .the week ended May 28. ��� The report was tho result of the work of
joint  committees  of  the  graduating
classes of Naval AVar College.
'J'he success of Channel operations
was attested to by the fact, it was
pointed 'out, that .100,000 vessels
passed through in the three years
from 19J5 to 1&17 inclusive,'and only
���IS wero mined and seven were torpedoed, none of which were loaded
troops ships.
In J-DJC tho British added to the
Channel security by placing a mine
net barrage with minefields to box
in tho German bases in Belgium. The
whole was patrolled by drifters and
suppo'rlcd by destroyers and*- monitors. Al night submarines took up
the patrol.
Throughout tlio Belgian coast operations the value of taking the offensive was demonstrated. The Germans were denied operations by surface vessels and greatly hindered in
their submarine worlc.
Tlio other largo submarine ob-
"bIruction was ihe mine net. barrage
from Elbow Light Buoy off North
Foreland south to the Goodwin sands.
This was placed in 1915 and prevented raids on the Downs shipping from
flic eastward. 11 was very effective,
'flic Channel obstructions- liko the
Belgian coast barrage, were offensive
measures of defense taken against
lhe German submarines and proved
valuable to security.

The Diamond Jubilee
Everywhere, nearly everyone is get-
ing ready for the great day, July 1st.
Buildings are being decorated, celebrations arranged, picnics planned ancl
on!the whole a good time looked forwarded to by everybody. What is all
this for? How many of us stop,
amongst all the bustle and noise, to
think what we are about to celebrate?
Sixty years ago tomorrow the Imperial Parliament passed an Act which
united the Provinces of Canada, Nova
Scotia ancl New Brunswick into one
Dominion called Canada. British Columbia entered Confederation on July
20 th, 1871 and by 1880 all British possessions in North America and adjacent islands except New Foundland
and its dependencies were annexed to
About one year later the first sod of
the Canadian Pacific Railway was
turned and from then on our Canada
has progressed until everyone. born in
Canada or a naturalized Canadian
may well be proud of the, country
they can call "their country".
Time nor space does not permit us
to go into great details or to publish
every name connected with "Confederation." Guiding things in the' Old
Land we had Queen Victoria, possibly
one of'the greatest"Sovereigns we ever
had. King George V now reigns and
we: can but say "long may he continue
to reign over Us," In Canada, Viscount Monck with Prime Minister Sir
John A. MacDonald led the Govern-1
ment, while at present we have Lord
Willington as our Governor-General
and Right Hon. W. L. Mackenzie King
as our Prime Minister.
Since "Confederation," the last sixty
years, many changes have taken place,
many railways have been built,, telephones installed, wireless invented,
motor-cars, radios, airoplanes, and we.
have become a great Empire and we
may well read once again what Rt.
Hon. Stanley Baldwin, Prime Minister
of England, says: "We who have inherited this Empire are proud of it.
With our pride there should mingle
gratitude to those who have gone be-
ore us, by whose efforts this Empire
has grown. In a world still suffering
from the shock of the war the British
Empire stands firm as a great force
for good."
Docksteader-Walker Nuptials

Prospector Disappears
 :���.���-  ;
Theodore Witte a wellknown carpenter and prospector, who has lived at
Deadwood for many years, is believed
to have been drowned in Boundary
Creek, on Monday, June 20th. He
went on a prospecting trip up Norwegian Creek on that day and lias never
been seen since. Mr. Witte asked T.
Krouten to fall a tree over Boundary
Creek,near the rock bluff on the Midway road, so that he could cross over.
After doing this Mr. Krouten left for
home a short distance away, and expected to see Mr. Witte on his return
that night. A few days later Mr.
Krouten informed the police and for
several days they searched Norwegian
Creek district and Boundary Creek.
A short distance below the fallen tree
the lost man's hat was found. As The

came in to see the Concert which was

was worth the trip for those who came
from Greenwood, Midway ahd even
Penticton. Besides being a Concert of
highest class, it is nice to know that so
many people are interested in helping the hockey boys pay off their
debts. "Listening in" the day after
the Concert certainly proved that the
people of the district are not slow to
appreciate a real good amateur performance when it is put up to them.
