IGQVI m IS EXPECTED 1C But Mayor Hardie Believes He (ton Show Ratepayers It Will Be Good Thing The establishment oi a government sheep shearing plant at Ccilrad cor-j rals next season, will be considered j at a meeting of the shareholders of the corrals to be held in Lethbridge on December 28tli. A meeting of the shareholders was lield last Thursday but few of them were in attendance.. C. C. Bcyuton, of Great falls, an ex- pert slieeu and Jas. A. representing the Dominion govern- ment sheep branch of the live stock department, were present and will at- tend tlie meeting on December 28th., The government officials hope to en- courage machine shearing by the in- stallation of a plant at Conrad for practical demonstration. Now that the option fm- the Gn mine been signed, Mayor Hardie ia going to get busy and give the, ratepayers some publicity on the pro- posal to purchase the property. It his intention lo thoroughly gate the mine and nmky a report on the physical conditions. lie will also prepare estimates of the coat of an aerial tramway and ot the Improve- raents needed in the mine to bring the output up ,to the required mark. At the present time tile city power plant Is using about tons of cool per annum. The mayor will re- port on the quantity of coal which will have to be mined in order duce the tons of slack for the power house, for it is the intention, if the purchase goes through, to use only slack in the power house, sell- ing all lump coal on a commercial basis. that the purchase will not go through without keen opposition in some quarters the Herald IKIK already learned. One ratepayer declared Hint the city's debt Is already large enough and to take on any further debt which is not absolutely necessary disastrous. Another said lie would oppose the purchase because he be- lieves it will be impossible for the city to And a market for 30.000 tons of coal annually in competition with other mines ot the district. The mayor, however, believes he can con- vince the ratepayers that the pur- chase of the Grace mine would re- sult in a profit which would make all city utilities pay their own way, and thinks the bylaw will carry when it is submitted to the people.

In giving put these figures tne ceasus. bureau announced that inves- tigations planned tor tlie coming year would cover transportations by water, religious bodies and marriage and dhoice "A juster distribution-ot. the ir.uHs of industry.' This was the plea made by Rev. Mr. Cobbleillck in his aer- in Wesley church yesterday mor- ning. He aaid wealth accumulates faster than the portion increases pt those whose toil of hand aad brain helps to pro'duce It, but Paul 3aid that "the husbandman that laboretli must first be partaker." We cannot escape into a better so- cial environment by changing coun- tries as the Israelites did when jthey left Egypt. The Red Sea is de.ep and wide and bank-full of difficulties. We are caught between the greed of the capitalist who wants to live jin lux- ury and the greed'of labor that some- times wants more than the business can staiid. while behind us. areJthe chariots and horses .of. the bargain hunting public, iMr. Cobbledick speaking of the eighth commandment, aaid It taught the divine appointment of property rights, but the injurious monopolies of land, mines forests, water, pow- er and 'other; natural .resources destroyed the moral justice of private ownership. It must be cured of that injurious monopoly or overthrown, Hope lies in the creation of, a social habit of mind and the cultivation of a sensitive conscience. It is in doing this we can render our best service for we are not expert economists. We can help produce the atmosphere of luramue cohBlderatfm in which tlie imperative work of social reconstruc- tion can be carried on.

German chancellor's proposal for peace, re- garding both its substance and form. It seems that the Vatican expected Germany to offer a'more definite pro- posal, which, without saying so, would have enabled the entente allies to understand that Germany wns ready to return to the status existing before tlie war. While the official noto' transmitted by tlie neutrals to the belligerents does 'not mention any conditions, R is understood that the: central empires are looking for indemnities for losses sustained as well an guarantees for the future, which naturally means territorial expansion. This is regarded hero as equivalent to a 'determination to force the war to the extreme.
