After a three-day auto trip through the country southeast of the city, Messrs. S. S. Dunham, second vice- president of the. U.F.A., and chair- man of the Rural Relations commit- tee of the Lethbridge Board of Trade, and G: R. Marnoch president of the Board of Trade returned to the city on Saturday full of optimism regard- ing the great crop, which, frcm all in- dications, will set Alberta farmers on their feet again, and do much toward bringing back the days of prosperity. Messrs. Dunham and Marnoch went east from Lethbridgo via Taber to Grassy Lake, and thence south to "Foremost, where a TJ.F.A. meeting was held. The Foremost farmers are most optimistic regarding crop pros- pects, .hut are.worrying about the ele- vator facilities. Mr. Marnoch heard many questions among the farmers as to how the tre- mendous crop was to be handled at Foremost if the steel was not con- nected .up to the east. However, it is almost certain that the elevator ser- vice at Foremost fill be greatly in- creased before the harvest. From Foremost the antoists went to Altorado, where a largely attended meeting of the B.F.A. was addressed by both Lethbrldge men. They found the farmers in this district very pro- gressive and husiness'iike. Parts of the country between Altorado and Lucky Strike, which was next visited, have been touched by hail, but no ma- terial damage has been reported. From Lucky Strike east to Warner, the crops were .uniformly excellent, as also from Warner north to Lethbridge. Mr. Marnocti tiian -pleased with the look of the wheat, which he described as being in- a very strong and healthy condition. NORRIS DENIES HOWDEN'S TALE OF DEAL FOR SAW-OFF PRINCIPAL LLOYD DELIVERS SPEECH AGAINST LIQUOR "The hotels are sick. We're going to perform an operation on Ihem on the 21st of operation for ap- we're going to cut off that appendix, the said Profes- sor Lloyd, principal of the Anglican Uollege at Saskatoon, speaking to a large audience last night in the Ma- jectis theatre. Principal Lloyd dealt with prohibition from the religious viewpoint, as from the eco- nomic and practical, and his remarks were well received by an. attentive audience. J. D.. Hlginbotham was chairman, and introduced the speaker after the singing of "Onward, Christ- ian Soldiers" by the audience, led by the Salvation Army Band. Principal Lloyd's opening point :was that there was no quarrel be- tween the hotelmen and the temper- ance workers, tie' had nothing ag- ainst the hotelmen, and declired that the temperance people as a body had the aim of the temperance movement to reform the hotels and make them respectable fllacea which the general public could patron- ize with respectability. The bar is the one thing which, according to the London, July dispatch to the Times from Paris says that the battle north of Arras con- tinues. Its intensity and duration make it notable. On a front of barely ten miles hundreds of thousands of men have been al- most incessantly engaged since the 1st of May in attack and de- fence of the watershed from which flow the tributaries of the Scheldt into the great plain of Flanders.

S. Preparing New Note to Germany Which May Lead to Severance of Re- lation Between the Two Nations Washington, D.C.. July Work was begun today by Secre- tary Lansing on a draft of the note to be sent to the German government, expressing the atti- tude which the United States will take toward Germany's submarine warfare and as it affects the rights of neutrals. No intima- tion is obtainable ae yet as to the course which the American gov- ernment will follow, but there is every indication in official quart- ers that the relations between Germany and the United States have become so strained ss to make it necessary to weigh care- fully the phraseology of the com- munication and to measure fully the responsibility and conse- quences which may be required by its contents. That there is to be no surrend- er of American rights in the new note is practically certain, ac- cording to the view taken by of- ficials thus far, and It is also as- sured that the German proposals for immunity of the American passenger ships not carrying contraband, will be rejected. Just what steps will be taken by the United States as a result of Ger- many's failure to disavow the sinking of the Lusftanla is most uncertain. It is this loss of one hundred American lives, for which Germany has disclaimed rwpon- has brought the sit- uation to a grave and critical point. London.
