This is the only school .in Southern Alberta, so far as known, which has a.'teaoh- class, and the members have diligently studied the four cours- es, which cover comprehensive ground. The exercises last night, took the of a.nllly, which "while not large- ly attendsd, was a most successful gathering, and unique as the first of its kind in the city. Addresses were delivered by Mr. Walter secre- tary for the. district, who gave' many excellent suggestions and helpful thoughts of his experiences as a Suu- dsy school worker, tending to give him a wealth of information upon which to draw.' The address preparatory to the pre- sentation of the diplomas' was deliv- ered by the former pastor of the church, Rev. A. A. LyiUe. of Pincher Creek, and under whoso .ministry the to forty bushels are looked for. Oats arc ripening well iiiul on the whole the conditions arc satisfactory. There has been no exceptional demand tor help.-A bunch-of men reached town this morning and will have, no trouble in getting employment. Good Yield at Warner Warner, Aug. the winter wheat is cut in this district and a considerable portion threshed. Mi. f I.oflingtt'ell threshed on Saturday and the yield was thirty bllshols to the acre which is about lop notch. The average will run between twenty-and thirty bushels. Spring wheat cut- ting is in progress and with a con- tinuance of' lino weather will all he down in a weok-or ten days, with the exception of a few very late fields. Oats arc ripening rapidly and -will be .1 big yield. Flax is rathor slow and will be late, in ripening. There is plenty of help. Half Through at Macleod Macleod, Aug. is a fair es- timate to state that fifty per cent of the grain in- this district is cut with a considerable percentate of the balance ready. Some of the grain will be late, but it is coining along well. What threshing has been done shows winter wheat running between twenty-five and thirty bushels, while of course there arc higher individual yields. Twenty-five would be a fair average for the district. There is no complaint of a lack of help so far. Claresholm's Crop Promising Claresholm, Aug. the con- :inuance of this weather for another ten days and this district will have i" stook one of the greatest crops in its history and it has had some big ones. West of the town in the Foot- hill district all the winter wheat is in stook and a goodly proportion of the spring grains. Oats will be a very large yield. West of the town the crops are coming along well and quite an acreage is in stook. Anoth-' er week will sec all the spring grain ready for the binder. There have been very few drawbacks this year and some of the yields will be remark- able. l_n the area hailed out last year the crops bid fair to beat the record. There is a sufficient supply "of help to date. jVo threshing has been re- ported as yet. There is no reason to change estimates made earlier in the year that there will be nearly a one hundred per cent, crop west of town and at least eighty-five per cent. east. fat the Bread that look First Prize Our bread, both white and brown, was awarded first prize at the Lethbridge Fair.

Their demand is for and 54 a day and from reports from other points it would'seem as if the urgent nred of help is being made the. occasion for a bold up. The yields in this district will be high, although thai is merely an estimate, no threshing having been done as yet. The condi- tions are most satisfactory to date.

Harvest ports in Hawaii and Porto Hico go to the Philippine Islands without losing that character. Didn't Say So "All this had obvious bearing on the provision of the Hay-Paunceiole treaty. Its provisions for equality oi treaty. Its provisions for equality ot treatment could not apply to vessels engaged iu coastwise traffic iind us- ing the canal because only 'American vessels in [act were so engaged. If the treaty meant that American ships which enjoyed a monopoly -un- der the navigation laws when plying round Cape Horn between the eastern and western coasts of America should lose that monopoly when they used the.canal it should certainly have said so, but uo one ever suggested that the treaty suspended the. opera-I tion of the navigation laws when the coasting trade goes' through the can- al. "The greater discrimination in- cludes the less and as the navigation laws exclude all hut American ships from the coastwise trade the griev- ance pf discrimination in tolls upon coastwise traffic would seem to be distributed on the ships of all coun- tries there is no discrimination with- in the terms of the treaiy. "It is sometimes argued that af- ter concluding the treaty the United States deliberately set about' defeat- ing it. will be remembered that the very next year a revolution, en- gineered by American capita! broke Panama away froni Colombia, and made a new republic the U'nited States. In the year fol- lowing this the new republic ceded to the United States a trip of land' on each side of the canal, which tb'us becames American territory. These scandalous intrigues cannot be de- :ended, but they make no difference to America's rig'hts. "If American ships had'a monopoly of coastwise traffic when (hey went round Cape Horn, they will have it vhen they go through the canal whe- her or .not the canal were American iroperty or whether it ran through j Vnicrican "territory, or not. "In our opinion' there is no case' igalnat (be exemption.of American, oastwise traffic from canal dues. If he treaty meant to prevent that it vas exceedingly badly drawn. The tobabiiity is that the foreign of- ce in negotiating the treaty com- lc.lc.ly forgot the American naviga- tion laws. The treaty; in fact, had a leak from.the start and was obvious- ly destined to founder. In foreign of- fice attacks on discrimination in fa- 'vor of American coastwise traltic its failure was certain. "The treaty should have been j drawn differently or a protest should have been made as soon as it became ish government has been- carefully preparing its cases, and Ilierefore it is unlikely that, there will he any de- lay iu taking the action indicated. It is expected that a statement on government's policy will lie imuie by Sir Edward (3rey, directly parlia- ment- in October. HEAVY STORM AT SASKATOON Saskatoon, Sask.
