EAST AND WEST FOR A BETTER UNDERSTANDING parts ot the world, and had thoroforo, porhapa, n reasonably broad outlook, but it may bo confessed that a sojourn ot sovornl yoard on the pralrlos, among the big follows who farm thoro aiiibng the many dimcultles that n now country alway.s presents, hart tended to an over-cstlmatlon of tho importanco of the business ot agrlculturo In the building ot tho natUon, and to n cor-reapondlng lack ot knowledge and vision ot tho necessity tor a ainiultanoous dovclopniont ot mining, lumbering and manufactures. A recent visit to tho East ha.-) readjusted tho mental balance, and frank confession Is made tliat one may learn that there are important intiulrics other than agriculture in the country, and that there are some pretty Uig and understnndjjig follows among those who Initiated and who carry on these enterprises. It wo\ild bo a pity it wo could not'got beyond tho point of thinking that all ot tlu< opinion of the country is represented by the extremists ot either side; for there are big broad-minded men in tile East, juat aa there are in the West. Lot's get together and see what we can do about it. for "a house divided against itself cannot stand." WEAVER LOPER IN U.S. TOILS Spokane, Aug. 9.-Governor Sam V. Stewart, of Montana, granted requisition yesterday for F. Weaver Ijopcr, who is wanted hero on a charge of issuing fraudulent mining stock, according to reports from Helena, Mont., last night. Loper, who was well known as managing director ot the Lucky Jim Zinc Mines, Ltd., with properties in the Slocan district, was arrested at Butte two weeks ago, but has ODPosed extradition. He failed to get bond, and is said to have been in jail while the hearing was in progress. Deputy Sheriff Clarence Long has been in Montana for two weeks in an effort to secure Loper. Prosecutor John B. White went to Helena for the hearing on the extradition. It Is expected Loper will be returned to Spokane immediately. Loper was arrested after much litigation over the company affairs. The securities are said to have been sold over a large area. 1919 FIGHTING IS LIKELY TO BE ON HUN GROUND One Year's Struggle on Home Soil is Expected to Bring the Enemy to Terms, Believes Washington Authorities; May Be Victorious Peace by Christmas of 1919. a lung period ot keen anxiety In en-tonto quurtorR. A second battle of, tho Marne has ended In a second criats in tho, war. Surveying tho whole world-wide flioldot struggle,mpn who have never been given to undue optimism, who have avoided underrating the hun or overestimating tho torcos sent against him, to-day consider seriously the possibility of victorious peace by Christmas of 1919. There is Indeed, another class who believe it will come during the.winter or next spring. Put they correspond to those English enthusiasts who regularly bet at Christniastldo that the war will bo over at Kaster and at Easter pay their losses, .double and bet on peace at tho next Christmas. ' No reason ot expediency now exists for qualifying the admission that American military and state authorities have passed through a season of bravo worry during tho first halt ot this year. The supremo effort to got man-power Into Franco was tho proof of how America rose to the demands that were made upon her. The impossible was accomplished and will continue to be accomplished for months to come in getting troops to Europe in expectation of tho next spring drive into German territory. In jGermany Next Year? There is sound reason for the belief that 1919 lighting will be done largely on German torrltory. That nt least one year's fighting will be necessary on German soil before peace can bo forced la accepted in this country and in the Entente capitals ot Europe. I am assured that tho men will be ready and the ships available to continue stream of troops to France at approximately Its present rate for five months to come. After that, it will be necessary somewhat to reduce the troop movement in order to devote shipping to making good the accumulated economic arrears. The countries, are overdrawing their accoimt at the transportation bank, reducing Europe's reserves ot food and industrial necessaries, which must in due time bo restored. But Providence has been on the side with the maritime establishment. The big crops ot France and England will make possible to use shipping tor trodps longer than would have been possible In tho 1917 season. At that time, the submarine activities were especially untortianate for the Entente, and food stocks were brought to the most dangerous level they have seen during the war, particularly in Britain. , There is only one construction to be placed on the scale of preparations which this country is making for the coming phases ot tho war. President Wilson was never more earnest in behalf ot "peace with victory" than he is to-day, and he has tho country solidly back of him. THE BARNS OF New York.-Judson C. Welliver, tho Washington correspondent of the Globe , writes: Mid-summer has brought not only the crash ot high Gorman hopes tor the present campaigning season, but happy ending to Mtkgrath, Aug. 8.-'A Are destroyed Verdon Bennett's barn Saturday.

Marnoch Thinks the "Hard Barren Rock" Between Sudbury and Winnipeg Not so Responsible for Mutual Distrutt as the Human Bone-hcadi on Both Sides. Letkbridge Chautauqua All Next Week, August 12 to 17 SIX DAYS OF HIGH CLASS ENTERTAINMENT (By G. R. Marnoch, President Leth-brtdge Board of Trade, in the Financial Times.) "The thing that prevents the East from understanding the West Is the long stretch of hard, barren rock between Sudbury and Winnipeg," Is a remark that has been made so often that we are tired ot hearing it. A recent visit to the East, and the experience of meeting with many of the financial and business men there, as well as many profitable opportunities ot looking over some of the agricultural Implement factories, steel works, car and locomotive works, forging, shell and cartridge plants, and last, but not least, an establishment splendidly, equipped for the manufacture ot aeroplanes and hydroplanes, causes one to make the remark that it is not so much the hard rocks that constitute tho barrier between us but rather our own bone-hoada. The first essential making towards solidarity among the citizens of Canada is that there sliould be far more personal contact between the people of the East and the West. Before wo can understand what is in men's bosoms wo must understand something about their buHlnoss; and the way to begin to do that is to see the men and at the same time to see their factories and their workpeople and helpers. Getting Together There arc two proposals before us now, both looking towards tho effecting of ^ Ijetter � relationships between tho East and,the West. The one that was first suggested was that the farmers and business men of tho West should meet the manufacturers In joint conference; but in the meant'lmo the recently, fomed Canadian Industrial Reconstruction Association has made the suggestion that some representative men from the West should make a tour around the producing and manufacturing plants- in the East. Remembering some of tlie initial dit-fioultios in the first mooting of tho Joint Committee-of Commerce aad, Agriculture, when the farmers first mot the.financial men of our own pratrio provinces, the Huggestion is respectfully submlttod that personal acquaintanceships should bo made, and personal examination ot at least some ot the big muniifacturing, plants, before any tittempt at a formal confer-onco on such a knotty quegtlon as the tariff is gone on with. , . , .
