'Maple Creek, Sask., Aug. 3.-No surplus of food products for at least some years after the close of the war was the prediction made by Hon. \V. H. Motherwell, president of the Western Canada Irrigation association, in opening eleventh annual convention of the association at Maple Creek. The world's surplus stocks of food, have been exhausted and it will require several years ot production under peace conditions to restore the surplus. Mr. Motherwell did not anticipate low prices for farm products for a considerable period of years at least. Tho necessity of producing foods called for use of artificial means when natural means wore not adequate, and one of the most important methods was found in Irrigation. Prof. Fairfield, of the Dominion experimental station, Lethbrldge, spoke on "Alfalfa Raising Under Irrigation." Alfalfa was essentially an Irrigated crop. The irrigation district sur-j rounding Lethbrldge had become the i greatest alfalfa center in Canada, with j 15,000 acres devoted to this crop. It was grown originally for export, but Is becoming the basis of an important livestock and dairy industry. V ORPHEUM-SfottS 6 THE POPULAR . m* & proy Musical Comedy Co.

C, Aug. 1.-I am now at liberty to disclose the information gajtheren by American secret ngents abroad concerning the number of submarines Germany has in operation and the rate at which submarines aro being constructed by the imperial government. Germany has In service 200 submarines, and never has had more than 250. Germany Is constructing submarines at the rate of three or four a week. The allies are' destroying German submarines at the rate of one a week. Wants Facta Before People This Information has been in the possession of the navy department for several weeks. Tonight I was given permission to publish the confidential report by a high official at the admin istration, who said he could not understand why the facts concerning the most serious aspect of the war should bo withheld from the American people. It Is no longer possible to conceal the fact that the submarine situation is denperate. The sinking of merchantmen is on the gain, even according to the censored reports given out by the British admiralty, which admittedly Juggles the figures so as to deceive the public. Now, in the light of the report by the American secret agents, it appears that Germany is building submarines three or four times as fast as the allies can destroy them. American and allied, officials are baffled by the problem of dealing effectively with the submarine. For several weeks all hopes were centered on the Invention of some device which would exterminate the submarine with dramatic finality. The British talked of American inventive genius ap o\ some wonderful charm. After the first flush of excitement over this hope it was admitted that no feasible invention had been produced, and that the distinguished inventors of the United States have settled down to painstaking experimentation which may or may not produce the antidote to the poison before the end of the war. Then there was a furore over the program of hunting down submarines and destroying them. The United States sent alt the destroyers it could spare to co-operate with the forces of the allies. But after a time the hope pinned on this program faded. Ever and anon the allied governments have fallen back on the plan of constructing more ships- than the Germans can sink. But Lord Beres-ford has shown that it Is Impossible for the shipyards to keep pace with the rate of destruction. It will be more than eight months before the United gtates will be able to turn out ships on a large.scale. Loss in Money Value The further statement was made seml-omcially today that the. economic damage Inflicted upon the entente countries and the United States by the submarine amountB to billions- per month. The estimate waa arrived at through a valuation of the tonnage destroyed and cargoes lost through torpedoings and from striking submarines laid mines. There have been admissions that the loss ot 'merchant ships amounts to 800,000 tons a month. The value of a ship Is said to run from |1,000 to $2,000 per ton. Taking the lower, the financial loss in ships alone would be $1,500,000,000 a month Cargoes aro worth more than the ships themselves. Some officials estimate the damage Inflicted upon allied, American and neutral tonnage available tor allied usos to run from $3,000,000,000 to $5, 000,000,000 a l^onti:/. -, TOO LATE!

WOMEN FORBIDDEN FROM TRAVELLING A DOUBLE LIFE. Winnipeg, July 26.-After having been married 16 years to John Patrick Gallagher, brother of J. Q. Gal-agher, of Gallagher, Holman, La-france, Packers, Agnes Dunthorn claims she has discovered her husband to be a bigamist. She lias laid a charge of bigamy in the police court against him. Both are well known in tho city. Gallagher, it is said, was first married in 1897, In AVlnnipeg, but after a while troubles between man and wife led them both to make attempts to secure separation. They ultimately separated and left for the United States. London, August 2.-There !s undoubtedly being manifested considerable exasperation at the inability of women to travel from England to Canada. There are some ladles who are anxious to undertake the journey in order to get married.

For the return of these papers we will give a liberal reward, either to the men who took them or to the person who finds them. Crystal Dairy Ltd. is at the bottom of this difficulty, whorenn the truth is that the restrictions are In accordance with Imperial regulations which forbid ocean tr�v-ellng for women and children eicept under special conditions, and faclli-ties granting these special condition* arc extremely limited, especially dur� lng the summer. The Canadian high commissioner's) office has this matter" constantly under review, but It is manifestly Impossible to override these imperial regulations even If the regulations were not framed In the be3t lntereata of those affected.
