SPECIAL E THE "Chautauqua" A Summary t Next Tuesday's excursion to tho School of Agriculture and Demonstration Farm at Claresholm under the direction of the provincial department of agriculture promises to take a large crowd from Southern Alberta to see the Institution. The Clares-holm farm is one of the models of tho south country and up-to-date farming methods -will be seen. A special appeal is made to the farming population to tako the boys and girls on the trip to see the school of agriculture. Children have been granted a half-rare excursion rate. Special trains -will be run to Clares-holm for the occasion. The train leaves Bow Island at 6.00 a.m. reaching Lethbridge at S.35. Here it will Jiick up a special train from the Card-ston lino which leaves Cardston at �5.30 a.m. At Kipp it will pick up still another special train from the Alder-syde line which leaves Mazeppa at 5.50 a.m. The special will arrive in Claresholm at 10.SO a.m. and leaves at 6.00 p.m. Free lunches will bo served at tho farm on arrival and also before leaving. Hon. Duncan Marshall, minister of agriculture will be present and will speak. President Mnrnoch of the Board of Trade was also asked to address the gathering, but owing to tho necessity of his attending the Irrigation convention at Maple Creek on August 1st, 2nd and 3rd he will be unable to attend the Claresholm affair. The trip to tho farm at Claresholm affords a splendid outing and the government expects the special trains to be widely patronized. (By S. S. Dunhaml. In our feoblc wny we have endeavored to give^some genera! idea o� tho Chautauqua.' Reports from other points of this year'n program that Is to be at Lethbridge is very flattering "witness last night's Herald." I take it that all have been convinced tlinl the Chautauqua Is a good tiling even If you do not yet know from experience what it. is. Ten days more and it will be here. In tho meantime wlint Is to be done? 1. The advertising committee have just started. Their work lies before them. 2. Tho same is true nf the ticket sales committee. Lethbridge must become the record city for attendance at the Chautauqua. Shall we limit the season tickets to 550? Mr. Lloyd must complete his committee by adding a large number of live wires, and getting busy. 3. The grounds committee, or which his worship Mayor Hardio is chairman, also have Important work to do. Shall we hold the Chautauqua in tho large tent provided? Shall wo hold it down town, or at Henderson Park? Or shall we procure the Eekstorm Rink or tho Curling Kink? These are all questions for Mayor Hardte's committee, and in making their decision they must consider whether the aver-ago attendance at the Chautauqua will j be 1.000 or 3,000, or more. j If a town of 200 people can secure j an average attendance of 1.O00, Leth-. bridge should have an average attend-' anco of at least 3,000, and arrangements should be made so that the seating capacity could he readily increased to that number. All of this comes tinder Mayor Hardie's committee. It is time for the committee to begin to think and work. And what of an entertainment committee? Some very noted talent will visit Lethbridge during the Chautauqua. Persons who are experts in their line, speakers, musicians, reciters, not of the ordinary vaudeville character, but of the world's best and most talented men and women. Should not the different organizations show some consideration to this fact and in return get some benefit from these noted characters, every courtesy paid to these talented people will be returned to us multiplied by a hundredfold, even if we figure it on the low grounds of dollars and cents. Are we alive on this question? Then the question of billeting visitors from the surrounding country. Should there be a committee on this work? And what about the Red Cross work at the Chautauqua? At some of the Chautauqua meetings in the States, thousands of dollars were raised for the Red Cross. Here this work is pretty well in hand. Surely this fea- ture of tho work will not bo oter-, looked, remember that all profits com-' lug to the committee gu to somo of tho war tunds. Tho Bed Cross work should bo wonderfully helped by the Chautauqua. Are wo alive to the opportunity in this case? In view of all those things, n general meeting is called at tho board of trade building, tonight at linlf-pnst eight, At this meeting all interested public spirited citze: s are urgently requested to be present. Of course, it is expected that the guarantors of the Chautauqua will be present. The members of all tho committees will be present. Representatives from the Mathesls club, tho Civic club, Red Cross society anil all kindred associations will surely bo present, you are invited to bo present. It wo all take hold of thl3 proposition in a co-operative spirit, we will surprise ourselves at how much wo can do, and the satisfaction that we will get by doing our own part. If, however, each of us leaves tho work for the other fellow to do, the result can be nothing but disappointment. Lethbridge was tho first prairie Canadian city to invite tho Chautauqua. It will be here as our guest in ten days. Aro wo ready to rocelve it? Come out tonight. It is now up to the citizens of Lethbridge. Aro we equal to the occasion. PREST. OF RURAL TO LITTLE SUPPORT OF Edmonton, July "7.-J. II. Lamb, president of' tho Union of Alberta Rural Municipalities, has just received word from Premier Stfton, who is now in Winnipeg, that he has been chosen representative for Alberta on tho advisory committee to Hon. W. J. Manna, Dominion food controller. Mr. Lamb leaves on Thursday for Ottawa, whore he and tho other members of tho committee will hold a conference with the food controller. LE AGAINST THE ANARCHISTS British Commons Laughs As It Votes Down Ramsay McDonald's Proposal London, July 26.-The house of commons, after employing tho whole evening session in discussion of a peace resolution moved by James Mac-Donald, socialist and labor member, defeated It by a tote of 14S to 19. The announcement of the figures was received with some cheers and much laughter. The smallness of the numbers in the house when division was taken is an indication of the little interest shown by parliament in any hope of a useful peace movement at the present juncture, and the conviction was voiced in an important statement by Herbert H. Asquith, the former premier, that nothing was to be hoped from the present temper of the German Reichstag and people. Mr. MacDonald. as shown by the vote, found very few supporters. George James Wardle, in behalf of the labor party, declined to have anything to do with the pacifists resolution. MARKS OF HONOR. "How is your garden getting along?" "Fine! It's produced a big crop of blisters already." (Continued fboxt Front Paoi) plored the infantry to save their guns but that tho infantry did not heed them. General Kornllorfs orders to shoot traitors and marauders are being carried out. The commander of a grenadier division has been removed for refusing to fire on deserters. The 5th Cyclist Battalion fought most bravely. It kept off three German regiments with its machine guns and carbines and made several bayonet charges afoot. In one attack the men rode their bicycles. Some sections of the battalion lost 80 per cent, of their officers. A member of the Duma who has returned from the Dvlnsk front states that after Russian shock, battalions had captured very important German positions It was discovered in several instances that signalling to the Germans were going on from the Russian rear. Rclgian artillerymen and mechanical experts in Petrograd, many of whom were wounded on the Yser or at Ypres, are forming a "Battalion of Death" to give an example of military valour on the Russian front. All Parties United. Washington, July 27.-The,Russian military reverses have enormously strengthened the hands of the government in Petrograd according to a dispatch from Ambassador Francis today to the state department. They have shown the impossibility of control of the army by -soldisr's committees, the ambassador report, and have led to a universal demand for stronger discipline. Tho ambassador reported that tho military crista at the front has caused tho deepest alarm In Petrograd not only as to n severe military disaster, but as to tho achievements of tho revolution Itself. All parties aro united, ho said, In urging tho government to use any iicua-uros necessary to meet tho situation.
