Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - August 24, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta SATUnnAY. AUGUST 21, t()l8 FHE LETHBRIDGE OAn.Y IIERALD PAGE FIVE NIHEIR ATIITUBE Viincoiivcr. Aug. 21.- With (Iu\ Hailing or tliu Htoamer J'rliicosa Chai-Iotto fur Victoria this itioniliig coii.'it.wlHe triitflc, so far iw the Inrgo oporallng '� nioriilng notified that .the ciii)taln^ of hteamera on tho Arrow.

The posslhlllty of the corapaiueM oprtraling ono or more vossel in an efrort to make tomponiry provi.sion for passenger traffic would scom to be thwarted by the action of the Marine Knglnoora' Association, which has passed a resolution declining to serve on vessels commanded by other than members of the guild. m STRIKE Vancouver, Aug. 21.-Hon. T. W. Crothers, mlnlst,or of labor has wired tho Caiiadtan Merchant Service Guild }icro in .an#wor to their telegram in asking tlie government to take over tho coasting vessels. The minister expresses the view that tho masters and mates took a regrettable stop in resigning while the Uoyal Commission �was silling and ho asks them lo carry on until tho commission, which he describes as a fair and just one has concluded its hearings and brought down lis findings. Tho Guild members tod.iy freely acknowledge that tho commission Is a fair and just ono but they argue that although a majority of the commission wore in favor of according recognition to the guild the companies refused and bonco it was useless to go on viih tho Inquiry. DEFAULTERS WILL GO TO JAIL FOR LIFE TERMS NOW Calgary, Aug. 2S.-Itow dffaulterB under the Military Service Act will bo flealf with by the authorities after tomorrow Is Indicated In u communication that has been received today by local military hoadam'i'ters, Kor some day? past an otficiul notice has uppcurod In Hie preoH, ia.suod by Ottawa,. reading: "The 24th of August 1.1 the last dny on which pardon Is granted to those who are do-faulters or who have tailed to report lo the military authorities. The ex-trnmo penally of the law wlli bo vis-[Itod upon defaulters after that date." Penal Servitude for Life Without a doubt, according to tho Information that has now been received, defaulters under tho Military Service Act and all who refuse to- obey tho lawful commands of the military authorities .will bo sentenced to ponul servitude for lite. This, It Is understood, will include conscientious ob-j(�2tor8. I'"'or some time past tho maximum penalty inflicted In sych caser has l)eon two years less one day, but it has been apparent that such a, sentence has not in any sense acted as a doterrenl. "The jjxtrome penalty of the law," as tho announcement from Ottawa states, will be put into effect from tomorrow. Already eight defn.ulterg In tho oast have boon tried before such a court and in each case tho men have be n sentenced to penal servitude for life, the sentence being latter reduced lo ton � years. The latter leniency, however, has only been shown In tho first cases mentioned and it is undor-alood will not ^sjply to any subsequent cas-.cs.

This phase of the matter ' was laid before the provincial Dep;.rt- hini. A general court martial consists of five officers, each of whom must have held his commission for three years. This court can try persons of any rank, officers Included, but �when an officer is tried each of the members of the court must be of equal or senior rank to tho accused. The powers of a general court martial include the death penalty or penal servitude for life. In the case of all military courts the officer composing tho courts must he combatant officers; that is to say, that officers such as medical officers^' paymasters, quarterniac'ers, etc., are not qualified to sit as members.

Aug. 24.-Announcement 'from Ottawa that the Canadi;iu gov-ernmtnt is commandeering the salmon I pack tor 1918 has caused bewllder-menl among British Columbia packers.

Wo can trace many crop failures not so much jto want of rain or special 'frosts as lo early seeding, providing thero Is some moisnire in tlie soil to start the .'!ecd on it.> way nnd conditions aro not aggravated by spring frost, drouglit. or drifting winds following on each oilier. When seeded too soon, crops are sure to suffer, it theso conditions prevail, and lliey do prevail more or less, following an early spring. F5y seeding two or three weeks later than was the case this year they would have missed the early spring frosts, drifting winds would not have liad so bad effect, and drought would not havo had so serious an effect. There is nothing the matter with seeding early iu April providing abundant rain falls In good lime, but wo cannot expect much lain until .lune, and wo can expect drought up to this time, as well as set-back to the crop oy frosts. Respecting conditions on by own 'farm, they are very satisfactory with tho prospect of a fine crop. Owing to circumstances no grain was seeded until .May 1, and some wheat oh fallow .May S. Some ot the last sown l.s breast high, a good stand, and headed out fully. Owing to ihe late seeding, the crop missed tlie several spring frosts and was not so tar advanced at tho time drought set in. As fpo grain was not frozen down, the winds did not have any effect. Regarding 1919, there are prospects of a bumper crop. Thero are considerable areas broken up. also fields that did not produce any crop, and tliero is a possibility ot more abundant rainfall, wliicli follows any season where the fields did not produce a crop. This seu.ioii it would be good practice to keep the cultivator going shallow to kefep down any growth, instead of plowing, and without any desire to pose as a prophet 1 am confident that I919^may be a record season tor the biggest crop we have yet pro* duced in any season.
