In July tho I tonnage lost went down to 320,000 gross tonB. TIiIh month mere was n nubatantlal improvement over that of July. The not losses since tho commencement of Germany's unrestricted submarine warfare was under 250,000 tons a month. Tho premier said: "Germany now Is barely able to hqld her own, not even tlint." Premier Lloyd Georfio said that In tho first six months of this year tho new tonnage tmllt was 484,-000 while in tho last six months, Including purchases, tho new tonnago would bo 1,424,000. Tho premier also said that considerable addition ha;l been made In tho program of naval construction. There had been a considerable Having In bread consumed, tho premier said owing to closer milling and food economy. There had boon addition to wheat stock of 70,000 quarters a week.

If tho harvest weather ware good, tho condition of food supplies would ho very satisfactory. Tho premier added that thoro hnd boon an increaso in tho BH/.ir reserve. "Tho government has como to tho conclusion," Premier Lloyd George said," that with reasonable economy there. Is no chance of starving Kng-land out.

Yes thero wore several things of a romantic nature canio to our attention during the Chautauqua, possibly the most Interesting of which was In connection with Miss Ward, and it is by her consent that I am allowed to dlscloso It. Fow of the people who hear Miss Ward In her wide lecture Hold know that Ada L. Ward is only tho maiden name of that distinguished \ person, and that ns a matter of fact her real name is Mrs. Grlsson, and that she has been married for some years, her public work being continued under her maiden name. When tho war broke out she was [ called to the work in France as she [relates, but her husband was called i to the trenches, and for three years I they had not mot. Finally ho whs discharged us unlit for further services. At that time she was making her Canadian tour on her work, inasmuch as she could not go to him, it was natural that he should come to her, and It was at Lcthbridgo after tho three years' separation that they met again. Tho writer had the pleasuro of Bome hours in Mr. Grisspn's company. A quiet, unassuming, modest little Englishman with ways that were quite as winning as thoso of his distinguish ed wife. 1 begged him to permit me : to lot the people know who he was, ! because I knew that they would like to bo kind to him and show that they appreciated his work as well ns hers, but lihiglishmanlike, he preferred to stay in the background. Had it been known at tho big mooting on Sunday night at the time that Miss Ward was ^ making her touching appeal on that occasion, that her modest little hus-; band just out of tho trenches was suiting In the audience, It is hard to say J what our people would have done. For |when she spoke of "how happy we [shall be when tho boys return," she jyas speaking out of the overflowing of her own heart. I had tho pleasure of seeing them together. When Mayor Hardio asked "Miss Ward" when she would return to England, she replied "what does it matter now, my husband is here." Yet sho could not disguise the fact that hers work was for the "Tommies" for whom sho had sacrificed and risked so much. At night when Chief Hardle was taking her and Mrs. Ritchie to Mrs. Ritchie's beautiful residenco where sho was stopping, I had the pleasure of accompanying them. Miss Ward said to mo, "Mr. Dunham, this lias been ono of tho happiest days of my life," and In her characteristic way she said, "Oh, but it ha3 been great," but when wo wero speaking about the altentiveness of the big audience and of Canadian audiences in general, I remarket1 that she would find no more intelligent or attractive audiences in the world than she would Hnd in Western Canada, Miss Ward says, "I think that is true," then in an undertone she said, "except tho Tommies." And fco I left this most interesting little Englishwoman feeling that sho had brought me and the people of Loth-bridge nearer to tho Tommies than we had ever been before. fives. The hankers and mortgage men and business men of tho west have got together to their great mutual advantage In tho meetings and conferences of tho Joint Committee of Commerce and Agriculturo; if wo could only got tho manufacturers of tho east to Bit down with the western men and talk over Canadian business affairs, wo might bo able to do something towards getting a tariff board to evolve such nn effp.ctivc tariff system ns that described recently by a noted economist-"not the tariff system with tho high rates, but tho ono with the keen thin blade of skilful adjustment by statesmen- economists who command tho facts and real meanings of commerce." The Need of Getting Together Hero then Is tho meat of tho mat-tor-amorousness of tho manufacturer; the amorousness of tho farmer and the consumer; and the acrimony of tho partisan politician-is this tho best machinery wo can evolvo for dealing with this intricate and vital business? Shall we go on with this row in the back street, shouting high tariff, low tariff, no tariff; or shall wo find two or three men whom we can trust, to continuously examine the situation for ub, to bear us all calmly and dispassionately, and then guide us to reasonable conclusions? Wo aro not thinking as much as wo should about how we are to carry on the country after the war, how we are to pay our war debt. If we aro to do it with our present population tho task is hopeless. If we want more farmers to como into the west, wo must show them that it will he advantageous for them to come to Canada. They start asking questions as to tho price of Implements and machinery and supplies; the men and women-tho brain and brawn and muscle-they como in duty free; but they must pay loll on everything they buy for developing tho land.

Attention is directed in particular to the appeals for thrift and economy which are being made to women.

They might just as well accuse each of being human. Tho chargo is true and significant. So also with nations; they all cherish themselves and seek to preservo their moans of livelihood." When Sir Walter Raleigh said that in an address to the Royal Colonial institute a few weeks ago he was not speaking of tho Canadian tariff, but the words are so apt as describing the feelings of tlj* farmers of the west and the manufacturers of the east, that they are sot down here as an opening of this short discussion. The Grain Growers' Guide, in an editorial a fow weeks ago, informed its readers regarding the present status of the United States tariff commission. After commending the selection of tho commissioners tho Guide went on to say: "But to what extent tho tariff will, by tho appointment of tills hoard, cease to he a political Issue is conjectural. The fact that parties have not been able to settle tariff matters satisfactorily, has not been because tj�e tariff 1b not a legitimate subject for political discussion, but because of the inefficiency of party government as an organ of democracy.

But the Guide appears to answer itself in a previous sentence, in which it says tho commission "will bring to the consideration of tariff matters nn expert knowledge which is not usually apparent in acrimonious partisan considerations of tho subject" "We nro a nation of economic illiterates"; that is a bad onough indictment, and it is true; shall wo go on, tho blind leading the blind, both east and west falling into the ditch in which tho professional political partisan wallow; or shall we try to get guidance by tho gathering of exact knowledge for our consideration?

Tho play is a distinct novelty, being a rural comedy-drama set to music, and interspersed with snappy dancing and specialties by the many able principals who compose the company. The "leads" are played by capable Julius Velio, and Hazel Wood, a charming girl, both of whom have that appealing quality called "personality." The other twelve principals aro all excellent In their various roles, adding "pep" to the performance, tho whole of which goes with a swing and a vim rarely seen in offerings nowadays.
