Morning Post declares the altitude ol Sweden towards Russia and tlie lat- ter'a allies, forborne time pant, lias revealed elements a dlstjuictcnlng character. "Emboldened 'by recent German suc- the newspaper says, "the lat- ent hostility of Sweden, which has never forgiven tils' loss of Finland, has become strongly developed. Con- siderable preparations tor warlike contingencies have been made in north Sweden and the Swedish army ia fully mobilized. ]f Sweden persists In her unfriendly attitude towards Russia, she may rapidly drift into war, which would inevitably be a great obstacle to her, future pro- gress." The Times, in a long analysis of the Swedish situation, says the war its importance.and peo- ple generally accept neutrality as the wisest course. Will Remain Neutral London, Aug. deci- THE FALL OF GORIZIA IS IMMINENT sion to remain neutral is as firm as was the reply today of the Swedish minister In London, Count Wransel, to rumors published in Lon- don newspapers today or possible par- ticipatlon of the Scandinavian king- dom in the "There is no fo.undnt.iou for the ru- the Minister said, "and sug- gestions that Sweden, contemplates ac- tion for the recovery of Finland is ab- surd.

This was apparent to the crowds who iuok in the excursion from the south country to the Claresholm ag- ricultural school yesterday. At OJlaresiiolnY, where last year at this itimc there were only 10 or 15 apiU- there are this year already aver 100. The yesierday was a great success. Abput forty attended from Lethbridgis. and many others from tire districts. The ations in the irrigated districts pre- vented many more from attending. ,The farmers were greatly taken with all they saw, and had many of their questions answered in a way that .was extremely helpful.

Craig, dcputv minister of agriculture Prof. Stephens, principal of the college, Hon. C. R. Mitchell, Hon. A. J. Mc- Lean, W. II. Fairficld.'.of Lcthbridge, and others. Hon. Duncan Marshall expressed disappointment over the .small num- ber of girls taking the courses at the schools in comparison to the boys, and scored farmers who were so sel- fish as to never give a thought for the'gii'.s or the :wivcs, and spent all on the boy because they thought they. might some time derive benefit from it. They would think more of buying a hinder than "of buying a -washing machine to ease .the work of the women. He appealed to .the far- mers to take' a larger view of life, and give the girls a chance. Deputy Minister spoke of the marketing of grain and live-stock in the old country, saying .that the grades of grain now the same at Liverpool as at Port Arthur and thus this on a practical- ly sound basis, nut the Livestock, he said, showed a great difference in prices, and he said it was the pur- pose of the department to look into this matter.

Furthermore, Riga, at the mouth of the river Dvina is ex-' pected to pass to German possession at any time.

The statement, no contains some figures which will'be surprising to Alberta people, anU shows an. unceasing energy in the prosecution of liquor law offenders. The :bulk of the convictions were ob- tained through the efforts of Chief Detective Morris, Detective Hodgkins and other detectives in the employ of the Attorney-General's deoartment. Between January 1 and June 30, there were 4-10 cases brought for tris'J and 413 convictions secured. During the same period of 1914 there were 138 convictions.

The Liberals had a clean sweep, and it looks as though the op- position would not number more than six. when the complete returns have i been received. j At the present time it appears that i the Conservative candidates who have been returned are: Newton, in Roblin; Parent, in Morris; Prefon- taine, in Carillion; Hamefin, in St. Rose, and Benard, in Iberville. Four of these are French seats.. A Social- ist Democrat, Alderman R. A. Rigg, was elected for one of the seats in- North Winnipeg.

The Liberal candidate there was a former Conservative, George T. Arm- strong, a lawyer in Manitou. It is understood that Mr. Sharpe, on ac- count of his sacrifice of his Federal seat, will be appointed to the Senate, to succeed .the late Senator Kirch- offer. Two prominent supporters of the late Roblin government, the Hon. Jas. Johnson, Speaker of the Legislature for a number of terms, and the Hon.
