BE LET FORM EN run iror Six Months At Least-New Plans To Cut Down Cost 18 SUCCESSFUL St. Johns, Nfld., July 16.-New Foundland's conscription law, which went into effect six week* ago, has operated so effectively that today the New Foundland regiment la recruited to full war strength. It Is not expected that a second draft call will be made until autumn at the close of the season for fishing, New Found-land's vital Industry. MANY DIE. London, July 15.-Several hundred persons are dying dally in Potrograd from Cholera, according to travellers who have arrived In Stockholm, says an Exchange Telegraph dispatch from Copenhagen. The disease, they add, is now prevalent in many parts of Russia. G R FRi CONFERENCE DEPT. AGRICULIURE DIRECT ORGANIZED HAYTRADING this district wlfl help materially to solve tliB feed situation in future farmers will take hold of the oppor tunlty, Is the belief of Mr. Stevens who vlaltod tho farm pt }i. E. Irwin, six miles oast of Barons yesterday. Mr. Irwin has been experimenting with Semlpalatinsk alfalfa, and under unfavorable conditions It has done exceedingly well. Mr. Stevens brought with him to the city one stool of thi.i alfalfa with 71 main stems. It weighed ,1% pounds whon pulled. Mr. Irwin 1b also growing sweet clover with excellent results in tho dry weather. And despite tho belief of many fiinn-orB, it Is relished by the caltio and horses. No contract will be lot for the col jJoction of the city's g.irbage for the inoxt sis months at least. That was docldod on a report of Commissioner iMooch to the city council this morning. Jn tho meantime a new system of garbage collection will be put into forco which It is hoped will reduce the cost. Tho new system Includes a new routing of tho garbage truck and corts, 'and Mr. Meech thinks it should result in a reduction of the cost. An effort will also be made to dispose of the hotel garbage to private Individuals for feed purposes, and this may bIbo cut down the cost. , In his report Commissioner Meech Instated that the cost of garbage coUec-ftion last year was about 111,850 gross. Of this about $2,900 was for overhead charges which the city would have to pay even it a contract for garbage collection were let. This left $9,C77 as tho net cost of actual col-Jo.ction last year. It a contract were lot the city would have to provide that tho contractor would take over the city's eaulpraent valued at $4,500 leaving only $6,000 for the contractor tor his first year's work. The result would bo that the contractor would cither lose money or do a poor job. The proposal to award a contract is therefore dropped tor this year. During the discussion It was brought out that,the city expects garbage disposal to cost more this year than last owing to the Increasing number of householders and the Increasing num ber of trips required by tho collection apparatus. Town Planning The council also decided to send Mr. McocU to Calgary on July 18lh to at-teiMl a convention of the Town Planning Commission. This convention will be important because of the attendance of Mr. Adams of the conservation commission who will bring In certain recommendations dealing ^wlth subdivision acreage. Tho decision of the board ot utllitlos on this matter has heott deferred until after the con vontlon, HO It was thought wise to have Mr. Meech present In order that any resolutlona passed might have the Bupport ot this city. It Is expected those resolutions will materially affect the action of the utilities board. The council ordered the payment of the Hiokoy Judgment against the city tor $160 damages and $74 costs. A wire is being dispatched to Mayor Hardlo asking that ho attend the Western Canada Irrigation Association convention at Nelson next week Jf he can so orronge if. IS SETTLED. Vancouver, July 16,-After conferences which continued until 2:30 o'clock this morning, a basis of settlement of the niw difficulties between the B.C. Electric Railway Company and electrical workers and carmen was reached and it Is expected that the car service will be resumed today as soon as the men receive word from their organization heads that they go back to work. Under the agreement reached all matters in dispute are to be referred to Mayor Gale for settlement. WAS DISPLEASING. Berlin, July 16.-Speaking in the Reichstag, Saturday, Philip Schel-demann, Socialist leader, said: "Foreign Secretary Von Kuehl-mann's resignation had the worst possible effect at home and abroad and It shows Itself to be  victory of 'conquest- and power' politicians. His speech had a bad effect not only on those who did not want peace by understanding, It also displeased the supreme army command." President Marnoch.ot tho Board ot Trade returned to the city on Saturday after spending a coupln of weeks in the east on matters concernod with tho organization ot the province for tho coming Victory Loan. Canada's second Victory loan will be floated about November next with $300,000, 000 as the minimum and $500,000,000 as tho mark aimed at. "Mr. Marnoch statea that the organization is rounding into sliai)o, but he cannot say mnph about it as yet. Hon. C. R. Mitchell is convenor ot tho Alberta committee and Mr. Marnoch expects to confer with him within a tew days as to tho provincial organization. Speaking ot his trip east Mc. Marnoch stated that Southern Saskatch-awan had a soil drifting problem on Us hands this year worse than anything in Southern Alberta. "We should consider ourselves lucky" ho said "that we have available irrigation projects which will allow us to water much ot our land, raise hay and clover crops and thus put fibre back Into the soil. The problem in Southern Saskatchewan is much more serious. Our tarlh-ers should consider themselves lucky if they can get Irrigation water for the proposed projects at $20 an acre. It is easily worth that to be able to grow the crops that will produce nfire." P. IT. Peters, commlssionor of irrigation, was In the city today from Calgary and conferred with Mr. Marnoch on this important matter. Mr. McCalg, who hn.i bnnn In the district for tho past two or tliroo days, and In company with A. E. QnaUoy, the agricultural ropresentnllvo of llio department hero, has mmli' a run through the Hhoop lands and lunula, has returned to tlio city .-md ix well satisfied that tho sheepmen .-ire sihap-Ing along well in meeting i\w temporary setback from backward grusH rations. In conversation v.-iili ti reporter ho Bays In part; "There Is a short top ot feed on the range for all classes of sinek, but I .shoop naturally suffer less tlian other | classes ot stock from short' feed, ^heep at present are looking ahoift as well as usual. If llioy are not It Is not due to bad range, so much as from rather low condition from coming out of a hard winter, This applies to shegp triliutary to Taber and straight south. Itoixirts indicate that farther east In Ilio Foremost country the bands are not tilling as well as they should. "The point at present l.'i (n look to 1 winter proviaiona. If; the iUieoiime'n'i are going to get through right this winter two things have to bo done; they have to get away from their present range It posslblo to save.It .iiul they must'provide greater siipplementury .supplies of both hay and grain feed than usual. It is reasonuble to assume that financially tlie sheepmen are in a position to take euro ot themselves. The man with a single unit of sheep, a couple ot thousand head, has a forty thousand dollar .stake to ba-pk his talk to the banker and has $10,000 immediate revenue in sight from his wool." "The saving ot the range for winter Is not by any means easy In all cases but already there Has been some spreading of flocks from the range oast and south-east of Lethbrldge. There have been 13,000 from the Lethbrldge district sent to the forest reserves already but there are 155,000 south ot the Bow. -iilOTe are being provided for howevei'i flennlngnr has 6,000 moving towards Brdpks; Peterson has .'},400 on the way north anil lie liopes to get iiUiraately Into the Park Re-serves south ot the! main, lino of the C. P. R.; Robinson; l\as movod 0,000 out of the Chin'district north nnt\ the Cardston men hope to get 15,000 or more Into the Waterton Park reserves. The Dominion governmuiit oflicials are now working on the Cardston proposition. Even it there is not a continuance of the spre.KlIng of bands from thoir home ranRo the food resources ot the grain fields will turulah teed up till Christmas for owes and lambs. "About hay-the department is us- ing the whole force of its field representatives on the hay question and trading in hay wil^got a real piincli. No doubt tho shoopmen will be first handed in getting thoIr share of the alfalfa that is going up and In addition to this there will bo buying and putting up of hay by southern outfits all the way to Losaor Slave Lake. Ono or two sheepmen hiivo already got In without going farther north than Olds but tho large supplies of hay aro away north. The drouth haa nffpcttMl the hay supply a" tar north as La-combo along the C. and B. and much farther north on tho east. The department win make progress reports on hay propositions from time to time and those wanting Information will get it from Edmonton. There will bo plenty of outfits in the south available for hay-making up north. The wool growers' ,a88oclatlon are prepared to financo a hay-making scheme, get tho outflt together and furnish hay at coat to tho small men who cannot organize a haying scheme at long range. "Everything Is looking better for both the sheopmon and cattlemen through the vigorous action ot those who are in charge ot organization combined with rosourccfuf actloti by the stockmen themselves." AT NIAGARA Toronto, July 13.- Acting for ton men who have been drafted and who firo held in the army under compul. slon, one ot whom already has been dispatched overseas. Cordon Waldron is applying to the courts on their behalf for writs of habeas corpus. in some cases Mr. Waldron Is acting at tho Instance of the United Farmers. The ten men whoso release Is sought are mostly at Niagara Camp. RE EAl R SEED NOW On representations by the Lethbrldge bo.ird ot trade and the Lethbrldge Herald that Dominion police we're erroneously ordering farmers o sell all their wheat, J. D. McGregor, western representative of the food board, has taken the matter up, and is urging upon the government that wheat now In the country be retained for seed purposes.

EVERY ATTENTION TOURISTS GIVEN WOULD BE INCREASE ALL ROUND Washington, D, C, July 12.-President Wilson's message vetoing tho $2.40 wheat clause said the increase in the prico ot wheat would add $2 to the cost of a barrel ot flour and would add $387,000,000 to the price of the 00,000,000 bushels crop ot 1918.

BAIT Last year in Fresno County, California, there were orders for over one hundred windmills sent to one mail order house alone. In each case the man who bought "long distance" had to pay the freight, haul the windmill out to his place and stand the expense of erecting it-When, if he had been wise, he could have bought the same, identical windmill at his local dealer's for the same money, could have had it takfjnto his'place and erected without cost or trouble and without the freight from Chicago tbiFersno tacked on.
