This disaster is believed to be the result of an extension ol the activities of German plotters in the States. Dispatches yesterday indicated that the whole question of the Lusitania would again be thrown open by Germany's refusal to yield to the American view of the situation. A Prussian casualty list issued recently shows that Ave generals liave been killed in battle within the past Jew months. A Zeppelin in a drowning condition 'was discovered by a British trawler In the North Sea. The crew, which �was not helpless, was not rescued by the trawler.

Meantime, Lcthbridgo and the farmers of the south tributary to this city should place themselves on record in no uncertain way that.

It is certain n very largo volume of grain will pass through this city It the Panama canal is to handle our wheat. Tho grain commission recognizes that Letlibrldge will be on the direct route for westoni shipment of grain, for Chairman McGlU made the public statement when holding his first session In this city, that, when western shipment of grain is cstab-Ushed, Lethbrldge, Calgarj- and Edmonton win be the logical locations for .""forage elevators to handle shipments to the Pacific coast. With these facts in view Lethbrldge I should be able to act Intelligently in tho effort to locate an internal elevator here when the time comes that such a structure can be used by the farmers to advantage.

CANADA, THE GRANARY OF THE EMPIRE A year ago Canadian farmers were told that their patriotism could best �be shown by producing In 1915 the greatest crop ever raised In the Dominion. They followed the advice, and "Canada, tho granarj- of the Empire," applies today as it never did before Let us look for a moment at the visible returns of the Canadian farmers' 1915 operations. Urged to raise 250,000,000 bushels of wheat, they did better and raised 336,258,000.

No official estimate of the value of these crops has been made, but on a Conservative basis, they are worth |SSS,000,000 or $250,000,000 over the value of the 1914 grain crops. Besides the grains, there were the root and fodder crops of the farm estimated to be worth $230,379,000. Livestock sold and slaughtered is estimated to have produced $200,000,000, dairy products $123,000,000, and poultry products another $25,000,000. The total ot these figures gives us considera'oly In excess of $1,250,000,-000 as tho result of the labors of the Canadian farmer in 1915, or over $150 for every inhabitant of the Dominion.

Foster, answering questions on the order paper by the member for Medicine Hat, states that tSie Calgary Internal elevator was never built with the intention of handling through it grain for delivery through eastern channels. This has been hinted before, and is no doubt quite right. The e.xperlence ot the past season proves that the elevator Is of no use whatever to the farmers under prevailing grain routes, and proves, too, that the building of tho elevator there at the time was Ih-advlsed. Tho Cilgary elevator will come into Its own when grain shipments to the Pacific coast, and thence to tho world's markets via tho Panama Canal, become general. This, however, will not bo until it has been proven 'by actual experiment that the Panama route tor Western Canada grain is as convenient as the present established route via Atlantic ports, and cheaper In comiiarison. If this can �be established, it is pretty safe to assert that'the grain raised between MooBo Jaw ttnd the RockloB. will all cd. The decorations and appropriate.

Canon Masterman, speaking to the Teachers' Guild, said: "We were today confronted with the results ot the deliberate corruption ot a noble people by the misuse ot the machinery of education. It ! was surely one of the supremo tragedies ot history that the Germans, a docile people, eager for knowledge, capable of close application to intellectual Interests, should have been moulded by the ruthless ambition of an unscrupulous oligarchy into an instrument ot evil to the world.

The heroes of eaeh nation's history have been those who have done the Krealest Injur.v to other nations and who have killed tho greatest number of foreigners, rather than those who have conferred the greatest benefits on mankind. "Our geograiihy has related too much to the |)o.sUioii, growth, and commercial progreHs of our own nation, and too little to our relations with other peoples. "Our patriotism has been too much concerned with our rights, amir too little with our obligations; too much with securing advantages for ourselves, and too little with the extension of international justice and goodwill. ". .' . In most nations today the schools are deliberately used by those in authority to instill Into tho minds of the young an exaggerated nationalism, which can be touched off into international hatred at such moment as the governing .authorltieH may desire," New Standards Wanted With similar accuracy the educators put their lingers on u Bpeclllo weakness In present-day schools-tho teaching of history and geography; "Entirely new values and standards for judging need to be created among the dlfi'eront peoples.

The first lesson was that education must never he allowed to become a mere instrument of tlie state. The work of the teacher must never be primarily political, but ethical. After the war he would like to see an International conference called, at which all tho allied nations should he represented, for the purpose of considering how to co-operate in maintaining the fellowship that the war had estah. llshed. Kducation meant the substitution of Justice for self-interest as the guiding motive of human action." Garden of Eden for Boys Sir William Osier, Ileglus Professor of Jledlcine, Oxford, speaking to tho Science Masters, said; "What was wanted was a more intense method of study of the sciences by hoys designed for the medical profession, BO that they might leave tho public school fit to begin their'speolal studies., ii'or fifteen years a boy should dwell In a Garden of Eden. During that blissful period a boy was Irresponsible and yet a responsive creature, who mentally and morally was often never understood by parent or teacher. Up to fifteen a boy could he appealed to through his stomach, then through his heart, but not through his head.
