Paris, April 22.-The entire press, except the anti-militarists, are preserving an extraordinary silence about the Krupp scandal. The absence of editorial comment is taken generally as a courteous rebuke to the German outbui^ts on the "Nancy" incident, and not as a susplcioua sign of the truth of the charges, which, except in one or two cases are daid to be highly uncertain. The Figaro, the only paper as yet' directly accused, does not deny that it received Krupp overtures, merely stating 'that it never printed the alleged articles to Increase French hatred of Germany.

A Hearty Greeting In closinc, Mr. Hardie said : *'Oit behalf of the city of Lethbridgo I extend to you a warm and hearty welcome, and may our combined efforts apply on the building up and advancing of our country, our city and ourselves." Mr. Fj. Adams, president of th tt Lcthbridge l^^^chlhition Board, who is in quarantine, could not deliver his address of greeting, and a few remarks were made in his stead by Allen Jack, extending a hearty welcome on behalf ot tho board. Mr^ Jack was especially glad to welcomq tho ladies. In speaking on the subject of mixed farming later on in the program, Mr. McNicol declared that Mr. Adams was greatly interested and was sorry he could not be present.^ ''But lie is engaged in mixed farming subjects just the same, even if he is in quarahtine. If chicken-pox isn't mixed farming, I don't know what is," Bald he. The Reply Mr. K. N.

He thanked the mayor, council, board of trade, exhibition board, the press, and all who had indirectly helped in bringing tho convention to life.

'All this haste w^nt on without a con-* sideration of where it was go;ng to lead, with tlio result that markotf facilities, having not kept pace with other development, are meagre and altogether inadequate, and tho poor farmer is up against U as regards market facilities.
