Accept- o( after eiplratlon data Mtbority to the WILL THE U.S. JOIN THE LEAGUE! To be what the League of Xations ia Intended to be. it is sincerely felt fcy Great Britain Hut the United States should be to it. The taken by the Republican-Sen- ators' In the States iu regard to the pretty well known. They ire.opposed to it on leading par- ticnlars, namely, the much talked ot Article X and the fact, that in each ot thej having a von, the Assembly ot Ihc League, the British becomes possessed ol sir rotes to the one o( the United States. In respect to tlio first it Is apparent from the communication ol Viscount Grey that has just appeared in the London Times, aud which baa created considerable attention, that the door is open for compromise; In "regard to' the second much depends M to whether the open mind will pre- vail among the objecting Senators in respect to.the real significance of votes accorded the Dominions and-to "the liberal interpretation ot the same The fate of the League of Nations, so as America's participation In it, depends very largely on the attitude as to.this. V .Article X may veil be called the! on which the whole League ;hinges. It provides that the members ,t of the League mutually agree to p'ro- lent .all the others in case ot aggres- islon by one'or more, .as the League decide. To this we hare the famous Lodge reservation that Am- f action, should not be doterm-" lined by the League but ty Congress.; .v.The'meaning ot' this reservation-is 'viuit the United States, in their de- -'tachment to what primarily concerns European affairs, wieh' to safeguard their being drawn Into com- agaliiit their will. But underlying this rsisrrsstion there may discerned that long drawn conflict :.between the powers of the jjiecutlro and tltoae: of Congress which have definitely determined, and particular case of Presi- jdent Vilson has led to the charge of authority by him by -'the1 Senators'opposed 'to him in his '.conduct of peace negotiations. li' the tone of Viscount Grey's Is interred to contain n tatives of the Great Powers ami four others to bo elected by the Assembly. In the Council Ibe British Empire lias oiil.v one vote, tho Dominions not be- ing represented- in it. But on (he other hand, it Is pointed out, the Brit- ish Empire may have five votes in the Council by the election of the Pomlu-' Ions to it by the Assembly. H how- ever, is by no means a foregone con- clusion that Dominions will havo a rote iu the CXmucil. It depends on the votes of the nations In tho As- sembly which. In addition to the Oreai Towers, include the smaller nations, comprijine at tots liaio tlilrty-twii, with moro to bo added. To get over the objection raised by he I'niled States us to the preponder- ance or votes the British Empire, has n the Assembly of Ihe League, It is In Viscount Grey's letter that the number of votes for the Uni- ted Stiles fce correspondingly increas- ed it this serves tho purpose ot meet- the present objection la the Re- public. Whatever the final decision of the United States be in regard to the League of Nations, the signs un not altogether hopeless that they -will have a change- of mind generally. Itj is significant that in tho State ot Calt-' fornla, that of Senator Johnson, ono of Ihe most b'tter opponents of the guo, the opinion is expressed by men ot authority, such as President Beti- jurnlu Ide Wheeler, that there is no tear what Canada, Australia, and New Zealand would do with their votes. For their interests, he contends, arc now aiid will contlnuo to be same, as those of the Pacific coast of the United Slates. Among the great prob- lems, he slates, which the League will.have to settle In the future will be the problems of the Pacific and the nations bordering upon it. attitude of California towards Japan Is the sams as that of Canada, Aus- tralia, and New Zealand. Our danger Is the same and our problem is the same." With the "feelers" thrown out in Viscount Orey's letter, end the gen- e.ral interest created In the League in the Slates, which, outside certain politicians, show a strong desire for America's participation In it, the out- look for the League functioning, with the States Included In it, looks more encouraging than at any other time. Much, however, depends on the at- titude of the dichards on both sides who have so far shown a very uncom- promising attitude in the opinions they hold. (Continued from From I Chairman Marnoch's Letter Dear Sir: The fanners in tUe Lethbridgo Northern Irrigation District will called upon very soon to come to ;i decision as to whether they are will- ing to have ihp project gone on with.

In the .States Charles Simon Barrett, President of the Farmers' National ye Union has the assurance hat the American'farmer is going to' elect the next President.
