Emer- German Government Kinds Bif- cully Enough in Feeding Present Population TORONTO, Aug. reports respecting damage to the crops In western Canada have giv- the public mind an unduly gloomy picture of conditions, In the opinion of Sir John Aird, gen- eral manager of tne Canadian Bank of Commerce, who recent- ly returned from a trip to tht pacific coast. Sir John said he believed that If good threshing weather con- tinued the value of the western crops would be quite equal to that of last year. .The grades shown thus far were better thsn 1918 and recent rains had great- ly improved the feed situation. He pointed out that last year sup- posed authorities had estimated that the wheat yield might not exceed actually a tota> of bushels was produced, and Sir John said, this year's yield might equal that figure. In central and southwestern Saskatchewan and in southern Alberta the yield was disappoint- ing, but even in the poor districts his' personal observation had shown him that good farming methods paid, and in the Irrlga- (ion belt the production was sat- isfactory. There was every year somo damage from rust, but the situa- tion did not warrant the extreme- ly pessimistic reports of loss from this cause, which he had seen In the newspapers on his return to Toronto. 4SOO civil servants, enough for a full brisade of four Itallons, with several batteries o[ ar- tmer'v, besides, if mobilized logethe-r. voters' registration, court here today.
