Harvest Help Will Now Be Sent Out From This City on One-Cent Basis Swedish Crews Guide Them -Waters, Eluding Hun Warships .Stockholm, via London, July 27 Almost every day British steamers ly- ing at' ilussian ports manage to get out of the Baltic and escape German cruisers. The ships generally cross the Gulf of Bothnia and are piloted around Sweden inside the territorial limit. This traffic during the last few weeks has been considerably ed! The ships as a rule take on board an entire Swedish crew and Swedish officers. Pro-German, papers here are urging that this traffic tie stopped contending that it is not in accord, with neutrality, but the government has taken iio action. A rate of one cent a mile for harves- ters from boundary points, with distri- buting pointy for Alberta at Edmon- ton, Calgary and Lethbridge, was the decision arrived at at the conference of railway officials and representatives of the government? nf tiie nnUrie pro- vinces in Winnipeg Monday, which was attended by .R, J. Daly, of the [provincial publicity department. This j is the first year for the recognition of Lethbridge as a centre for this distri- bution of labor for the harvest from the United States. It was stated at Ihe conference that the, soldiers will be available for the -work of helping out the farmers from August 1. The date when the rate will come into effect will be announced later. At the con- ference arrangements-were also made for securing labor from the east. The rate will be the same as last year, 518 from Ontario to Winnipeg and then a cent a mile west from that point. The efforts of the board of trade have been successful here in having Lethbridge established as a distri- buting eeutre for labor. President Marnoch early took up this matter and the above is the result. A one cent rate to smaller points from Lethbridge will now be possible. EXTREME HEAT AT PETAWAWA Ottawa, July present hot wave, which is the most prolonged ex- perienced by Ottawa for many years, continues.

Officers in town from Petawawa artillery camp say that while the men are. standing the heat number of horses have died. London, July officials here state that the British authorities found that they must take steps against Dutch fishing boats, as the Germans in certain areas were making use of disguised fishing boats not only to secure information but for actual attack on some trawlers, even those under sail being provided with tor- pedo tubes- It is denied here that the English are declining buy Dutch SECRETARY AT SARCEE The Rev.

The Undercurrents But there are undercurrents, and so far as the Herald can learn, the root, or' tiie trouble lies in the wage sched- ule trouble between the operators and miners, which has been brewing for On the surface it appears that the j some time .The immediate cause of the walk-out here is an excuse to cover tip the real cause and produce effects which are calculated to bring the operators to their knees in the fight for the ten percent increase. This opinion is held by men who should know, and their reason is that the miners here have not taken ad- vantage of any of the arbitration clauses in the old agreement signed in March, liH5, under which they are working today. Under this agreement, the trouble in the local mines should have heen first dealt, with by the pit committee. If no settlement were ar- rived at, then the next step would have been to talte it to a committee composed of the mine superintendent the district board member repre- senting tfie miners. When that failed the 'grievance, should have gone to the officials of the district to take up with the operators' ;.to ' to arbitration if they could not agree. This course should have been followed before calling a strike; But it was not followed, and the temper of the miners is pretty well shown by that fact. 'Just what will be the next step is hard to say. The local mine officials will submit the case to the Operators' executive; Lethbridge Local No. 574 will submit their case to the district" Appeal Judges to Hear an Appli- cation, Nature of is Not Disclosed London, July Darling announced today that judges who heard the appeal of Roger Case- ment against the sentence, of. death on the charge of high treason in con- nection with the Dublin revolt, would sit tomorrow to "bear a possible ap- plication on bohalf of the convict."

Justice Darling added that tiie king's counsel had been told by those repre- senting Casement that it was desired to make an application to the court of criminal appeal, but he had heard from another source that it was improbable the application would be made, as the matter was uncertain and they could not allow any uncertainty in a ques- tion of this kind. _ The court, how- ever, would sit tomorrow to hear any application Casement's attorneys might wish to make. executive at Fernie. The next step will be between Calgary and Fernie. Meantime there is little hope held out that the miners will return to work here. At present the two mines are rais- ing 1100 tons of storage cca! daily. This supply is cut off. Working Across the River The miners at the Chinook mine at and the North American Collieries at Kipp are still at work today, but the local unions are holding meetings and it is hard to tell what iiiay happen.
