PERLEY Hruce Report Not Tabled Laurier Sees No Necessity For Overseas Minister Ottawa, Aug. 7.-When the house mot. this afternoon Mr. Borden named tho commlttco to consider the revision of existing rules and regulations rogarding securing of divorces. Sir Wilfrid Laurier asked the prlmo minister whether tho evidence of tho McLeod-Tolller commission wore available. Ho had received the report but not the evidence on which It wa^ based. Hon. C. J. Dohorty said he was not qulto certain whether the evidence had accompanied the report or not. "The report is no use without the evidence," said Sir Wilfrid. "It should be at once forthcoming." Hon. Charles Murphy then asked whether Dr. Bruce's report would bo forthcoming. Had the premier heard from Sir George Pcrley. Sir. Robert Borden answered that ho had received a telegram from Sir George, but he was not sure whether tho report would be tabled or not. Mr. Murphy pointed out that there was a cable from England in the morning newspapers quoting Sir George as saying that the report had been sont. Vic had also commented on the report. Gen. Hughes said that it was a strange sort of procedure for Sir Geo. Pcrley to be able to comment on the data of the report when parliament was excluded from the perusal of it. "Order," said Mr. Speaker. "I desire to ask," said Gen. Hughes, "why Sir George Perley is permitted to withdraw from parliament information to which it is entitled." Sir Robert Borden then moved a resolution to provide salaries for the overseas minister ot militia, parliamentary secretary for the militia department and parliamentary undor-sec-retary of stato for external affairs. Sir Wilfrid Laurier strongly criticized the appointment of the overseas minister, of militia. He believed with Gen. Sir Sam Hughes that such minister was not necessary. He declared that the J creation of such a position was bound i to result in clashing between the Canadian and overseas department. LINES IN LENS CITY (By Canadian Overseas Correspondent.) Canadian Army Headquarters in France, August 7.-Canadian outposts around Lens bavo established ti new line in a group ot houses within a few yards of tho enemy front line. At that point tho Lens-Betliunc road is now safely within our lines almost up to the city of Lens. The enemy does not intend to submit to the loss of LonB a little bit at a time as in the rocent advances without making a fight tor it. While our outposts were establishing their new posts this morning the Germans turned loose heavy artillery and machine gun barrage upon the crater recently captured and tho buildings nearby. Sheltered by this barrage his infantry advanced upon the crater which was only lightly held as outposts. Our men In the crater withdrew without suffering any casualties and the Germans re-occupied it. Destructive artillery shooting was continued yesterday by our artillery at an accelerated rate because of tho better light, but dull weather has come again and tho gunners are disconsolated. RELATION OF PASTOR I Rev. C. E. Oragg preached his first sermon as pastor of Wesley church, Sunday morning anil on request of The Herald, he has given the following synopsis ot the address: His subject was the relation of pastor and people and his text was taken from tho Acts of the Apostles, 10th chapter and 2'Jth verse. It was Peter's quostlon of ('ornniius--, "And now I ask why have you sent for me';" The substance of his sermon was as follows; 1 would scarcely be human if I did not come to you both with feelings ot depression and encouragement. I am encouraged when 1 think ot this magnificent, plant, of the hearty welcome you have extended, and of the great opportunity for soi'vlce, presented by Oils city. Hut i 1 am depressed when I recall the high I hopes of the people to be fulfilled, | the great work ,to be accomplished | (j10 and the class of men who have occupied this pulpit, and I wonder why you have sent for me. "Of course I do not for one moment imagino that any angel appeared to you as in the ooso of Cornelius and directed your thoughts toward me.

G.-Emperor William and Empress Augusta Victoria arrived In the capital this morning, according to a dispatch from Berlin. Tho . emperor received reports from the chancellor and the chief of the general stoff. An informal reception was held In the reichstag building Saturday, the anniversary ot the sitting of August 4, 1914, when Emperor William opened the imperial parliament and informed the members of the declaration of war by Great Britain and France on Germany. Tho president of tho reichstag, Dr. Johannes Kaempff, reviewed Germany's war efforts and declared that Germany would fight until she obtained a peace guaranteeing the security of the empire. The imperial chancellor, Dr. Mich aelis, then said in part: "We all know what we want. We wlli hand our patrimony Intact to the future generations. We will, preserve our country by a strong and wise peace, In order that the Gorman race mBy retain, sure ground for its healthy and vigorous development." At the conclusion of tho proceedings a telegram was dispatched to Emperor William, expressing hope for an honorable peace. First Aid to Tired Housekeepers.

I eO�V*lBHTKO 1*14 i,evNoic*Te I be- AT STARLAND A greater contrast than that tween "Sapho," Pauline Frederick's recent picture, and "Sleeping Fires," could hardly have been found. In "Sapho" she played the part of a soulless creature, while in the latter picture she appears as a devoted wife and mother. In this picture Miss Frederick has well displayed the full scope of her ability and rises to dramatic heights that surprise even her most ardent admirers. Do not miss this remarkable photoplay which will conclude its run at Starland tonight. On the same program Is also shown a most laughable 2-reel Keystone comedy entitled "His Fame and Shamo," which is a scream from start to finish. Next Thursday will be shown "The Woman in White," in Bix reels. This fine picture stars Florence La Badle, who is well known  to Lethbridge theatregoers, through her work in "The Million Dollar Mystery." Miss La Badie is seen at her best in this great dramatic story. t Winuipeg, Aug. 7.-The following official' report on the crop In Alberta was issued by the Alberta department of agriculture and posted on the grain exchange this morning: "Crop conditions during the past woek have groatly improved. Abundant rains and cooler woather prevailed over a large portion of tho province. Prospects in the Peace Iliver districts are particularly good, and a splendid harvest ia assured there. Halns have helped crops In many other districts, and with few exceptions average crop is predicted, haying is well under way. Livestock is in good- condition." AT THE EMPRESS In "The White Raven," the new Metro-Rolfe wonderplay, in which Ethel Barrymore, the celebrated star, will be seen at the Empress theatre tonight, the last time, startling as it Is unique is played by Miss Barrymore In a manner that emphasizes tho wonderful art that has put her at the head of her profession. Especial interest attaches to this latest Metro production for the reason that it is the first appearance on the screen of Miss Barrymore since she announced her abandonment of the speaking stage. Many scenes in "The White Raven" give Miss Barrymore opportunity to wear a variety of costumes. From a dance-hall girl in an Alaskan "honka-tonk" to a grand opera prima donna, Miss Barrymore has rare opportunity for contrasts, none of which is neglected, In tho first part of the production Mis* Barrymore, for the first time in her career, doos a song and dance. Never before has she been seen In such a role and It was only because It was absolutely essential to the dramatic values of the picture and because of her unwavering devotion to the screen that she consented to appear In the necessarily bizarre costume. J. R. Hall, baritone, will sing, and a Current Events will be shown.  � *>��      �>  + � to please AT THE ORPHEUM Once again the Harris & Proy players proved their popularity with the Lethbridge theatregoers. At an early hour the S.R.O. sign was displayed and muny wore turned away. The company is much stronger than an its former visit and the attraction last night was a real contender for first honors in the musical comedy field. The walls of the Orphoum fairly trom Wed with sincere laughter and applause. The picture program is one T of the best over seen at this popular + i bouse. As Mr. HSrria, principal cornel edlan of the company, Says, It pays tho other hand no angel came to me I it a m|nisl,.,. can only convince and directed my feet hither. And yet, friends, I would like to believe that our coming together was as divinely directed as was that of Cornelius and Peter. I know that it was not until after a great deal of investigation that you finally decided to invite me to become your pastor. 1 know Tor my part, that it was not until after weeks of prayer and thought that I finally decided to come. And so I ask, why have you sent for me and what aro the relations wo shall henceforth bear to each other. And first let me ask you what are your convictions and conceptions of the Christian ministry. The work of the Christian ministry is usually conceded to ho of divine appointment and is therefore connected with high and lt\rZT?b,nlty- u�tl� d0 ! * "want to :s'ay7o7ourtha"t It the souls of men. It is the work ot the doctor to alleviate pain and suffering and to restore the sick and morbid to health. It is the duty of the statesman to make and administer our laws, and to look after the general wellbeing of the nation. But it is the task of the minister to lead men out of darkness Into light, and from tho power ot Satan unto God. And what a task is that. Temporal loss may befall any man In this world of transition, but what is that loss however seemingly great, as compared to the loss of a soul, and to be in any way connected with the loss of one soul is tho acme of all cruelty. And you will see how true this is If you consider the nature of tho soul, made in the image of God, possessed with the j great possibility of receiving pleasure and pain, and endowed with immortality. Consider the price which was paid for its redemption! which justice demands, and which the Son of God paid in suffering and death. Recall if you will all those terms which are used in the word of God to portray the misery of a lost soul. I say if you consider these facts you will get some conception of the greatness of our work. You can readily see therefore how the work of the Christian ministry differs from that of every other profession or work, indeed there is a very real sense in which it is not a profession, it is a calling. This is the thought that is everywhere referred to in the word of God. "Paul an apostle, not by men, nor by men, but by God the Father." "Paul called to ba an Apostle by Jesus Christ and God the Father." "Remember your Holy calling brethren." Now the way that God calls won may differ. Some men may go through a long course of training, as did Paul the Apostle; others may go direct from the field or tho shop, as in the case of Gideon or Elisha. But whether the training be long or short, the results are the same, wo are called of God into this ministry. There diversity of gifts, but it's the same spirit. I expect to differ from every man you have had. Your ministers for the most part have been strong outstanding men. They have In a degree impressed their personality upon this congregation and this city, and many will arise and call them blessed, and I suppose you will want me to do as they have done. Well I don't expect to do anything of the kind, I want to be myself; I want to impress my personality upon this congregation and this city. If we are agreed that the work of the Christian ministry is Divine, let us ask what should be the relationship that ought to exist between a pastor and his people. Kvery congregation needs a pastor, and every pastor a church, and "what God hath joined together let no man put asunder.?, What may the pastor reasonably expect of his congregation? 1. That they be regular in their attendance upon the Word of God. Empty seats are very little inspiration to a preacher. Even tho absence of one member is a loss of power to the speaker. And yet what paltry excuses will keep people away from the house ot God. If you would get tho very best out oi your pastor then be regular in your attendance. But .not.''Only,should they be regular they should lie punctual. When Poter arrived at tho house of Cornelius and made the inquiry, "And now why have you sent for mo." Cornelius auswered, "We aro all hero present before,God to hear the mes-Bitge which you have received from God." That was surely an Ideal ser- vice. All (hern and to hear tho ine.s- j sago from God's servant. I fear there is something radically wrong when people set. a llglil value on the invocation or tho benediction. Thn service Is divine from the beginning to close. 2. And thou ho has n right to expect the sympathy of his people. The conduct of every minister It; open to public criticism and to a criticism that is anything but kindly. From his own people every minister should receive the most kindly treatment and himself that ho is being upheld by the sympathy and prayers of his congregation he becomes as strong as a lion, and is able to do all things. You may not always understand him. You will not always agree with him. But he is your minister and as such ho should be to you (lie host minister in the city. The question before us today is this-How can an imperfect minister working with an Imperfect people procure tho most perfect results. I have left a. very kind and sympathetic people, and I have come to you. Mrs. Cragg and I were very happy in our last charge, and we expect to be just as happy here. The ladies have done everything in their power to make us feel at home. But s a pretty serious matter for a man to commit his interest to a congregation. All my future is bound up to a large extent in this church. But it's an equally serious matter for a church to commit her Interest to a pastor. Think of what it would mean were we to fail this term. Some of our men are obligated to the extent of several thousands of dollars. I come therefore and appeal to you for your loyal and hearty support and I pray that together wo may work for the upbuilding of the Kingdom in righteousness. But what should the church expect of their pastor? They have every right to ask that ho be a good man. Ho should be an example to the congregation. His conduct should be above reproach. He should manifest tho glory of God. "1 desire to know nothing among you save .lesus Christ, and Him crucified." And then, too, they have the right to expect that their pastor shall be a leader in thought and study. No minister of the gospel has any right to come before his people ill prepared. He should be a loader of the very best religious thought of tho day. But a minister is also a pastor. He is the shepherd of the flock and not of any particular portion thereof, but of the entire flock. 1 hope this will be one of my first tasks to know you in your homes and in your places of business. But there are some things that the people have no right to expect from their minister. They should not expect their minister to preach 104 best sermons in a year. There are times when the mind works freely, and when sermons come ready made. There aro other times again when the very fountains seem to bo stopped and the mind refuses to work. You know how true that is in your own experience. But the difference between you and your pastor is this, you can keep your, seat and say nothing if you are so disposed, but your pastor has to preach whether he feels liko It. or not. Nor should you expect a full round of Gospel truth every time ho preaches. There arc times when tlicro will he very little in the sermon for you, and you will lie disposed to complain. Hut you should remember that In such a congregation as this there is a great diversity of thinkers. Some are naturally philosophical and would like a well thought, out logical address; others are theological and would like a .sermon dealing with doctrine; some are very devotional and would liko every sermon to be evangelical; others arc practical and would like every sermon to deal with some sociological or ethical subject. We hope to bear in mind the groat diversity ot type in our congregation and to havo something for each from time to time. Nor should you expect your pastor to be always on the go In looking after his people. Every minister has a two fold duty, he is a preacher and teacher, but he is a pastor, a shepherd. Dr. Cuyler once said, "That every wiso pastor will study his books In the morning but the door plates of parishioners in the afternoon." That is exactly what I want to do. I want to devote the mornings to my study, I owe that both to you and to myself, I want the mornings kept sacred to study. But the afternoons and evenings will be devoted in the interests of my people. I am among you to serve. I would deem It a very great favor if you would lot me know of any Methodist family who had recently moved to town or any Bick that I mny look after them. You will observo friends that I j have been preaching both to you and myself this morning. Wo are entering into a very holy and sacred relationship and I want it to redound to the glory of God. I deem myself privileged to bo associated wlt4i you in this noble work. But in this first service I call upon you for a rededlc-at.lon ot yourself to the word of God, I address you in words of St. Paul, "f beseech you therefore brethren by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice holy acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service." If together we seek first his kingdom, then God alone can tell what glory shall be revealed in us. Sir Wm. Hearst, premier ot Ontario, fears that shortage of food supplies will hinder the allies in winning the war. "We must look calmly and fearlessly at the present situation. Unless there is gr#at:er thrift, economy and conservation of food, there will be a shortage of supplies to Great Britain and her allies that will hinder her chances of winning the war," said Premier Hearst.
