The Ambas- sador conferred with Mr. Lansing for an hour, stud talked later with As- sistant Secretary Phillips. In the absence of President Wilson, Secretary Lansing was unable to in- form the Ambassador what course the United States would pursue in its next note, but he heard with mnc.h interest Count von Bernstorff's ex- planation of the purposes of the Ger- man government to satisfy public op- inion at home on the maintenance of. submarine warfare, and at the same time maintain friendly relationship with the United States. No Repetition of Tragedy The Ambassador is personally vincert there will be no repetition oC the Lusitania disaster, and that Ger- man submarines are now exercising sreat precaution to avoid incidents which might inflame public opinion, in the United States. With that idea in mind, he urged that the United States take advantage of the intima- tion in Berlin's reply that Germany would be willing to have the entire question o[ the freedom of the seas mediated with Great Britain through the American government. Such a course, American officials have indicated, might be more wel- come if accompanied by some aiiee that during the pendency of ne- gotiations, American lives and ves- sels tvould be safe from attack and danger.

Justice Perdue, the chairman, toM Mr. Fifllcrton that since he had aban- doned the charge regarding the pay- ment of money in connection with the resignation of the government by, the men who made the arrangement, tic should formulate new charges.

FOSTER MUTUAL RELATION BETWEEN CITY AND FARMER, DUTY OF BOARD OF TRADE The fostering of the mutual rela- tionship between city and country, between the business men and the farmers, was still further dwelt upon- as a duty of the Board of Trade here, by S. S. Dunham, at the weekly -un- ciieon of the council of the Board yesterday noon at the Lethbridge Hotel. Mr. Dunham has returned re: cently from a four of the south dis- tricts; and he is still more impressed with the necessity of keeping uii the good work of developing the spirit of co-operation between the city and the country. In this connection Mr. Dunham sug- gested that arrangements be made for some member of the Board to formal- ly meet.the farmers who are coming to the'Experimental farm on excur- sions from time to to speak to them of the wil'Hngness -of the Board to aid tho farmers in any way whatsoever. It is probable that some such arrangement 'will be made in connection with the excursion OF far- mers from the Aldersydc: branch to the city on Saturday of this weeli. Mr. Dunham intimated that he had found very' little, discontent among the south farmers during his trip. Ile- lations -between" the farmers and the i'lty raen were'as yet very much in the embryonic state. The farmers had not yet 'formed those relations which tied-theni to the city, and. now was the time for the Board of Trade the good work e! fcsterms and cementing these relations The secret of Ins election to the ecutive Of the United .Farmers of.A'i- berta, said Mr. Dunham, was not so much as an honoi to himself, as an honor to the city of Lethbridge for the manner in which tlu'i had treated the farmers' convention the year pre- Discuss Agricultural School A public meeting to be addressed by Dr. J.
