However the belief that victory is now assured and that the war is en- tering its last phase was often declar- ed by the speaker as a special reason for giving thanks. At Wesley At Wesley Rev.

As for Southern Alberta's reasons for giving thanks .they are ev- ident on ever.' hand. No other part-of the Empire, or of the world in fact, has been blessed with such crops as has Southern Alberta in 1915 and 1916 The result of this prosperity will either be a great gratitude or greater self indulgence, and he prayed tliat.it might not be the later. The choir under Claude Hughes ren dered some particularly, fine music. Knox Church' Rev. Mr. Burns, at Knox church dwell on Thanksgiving themes in the evening services, and .assisted with some splendid, music by a large choir under the leadership of Ernest Layton. Mr. Burns enumerated reasons fo lhanksglving from' many standpoints S., just oast of tho oil yards, is a mat- er to be decided by the city .council and that- body is-not the ob. At this morning's meeting of the ouncil, John Taylor and John Uvie vere present to urge Ihat permission o build be granted, while Messrs. F. W. Downer, John Home and C. B. Bowman were present representing a number of the ratepayers with prop, erty within three blocks o[ the pro- posed plant, urging the council lo deny he application. So the council is in an unenviable position. Mr. Taylor wishes to establish an ibatloir on Ihe sile mentioned, to be ised in connection with Delany's .Id., willi which he is now connecleri He applied .some weeks ago for a per- mit lo build Ihe plant and it was jranted. When citizens living in the eastern end of the city heard of the move they objected, and sent a letter :o the council staling their objections. The council then arranged tills morn- ing's meeting. Would Be Entirely Sanitary Taylor's arguments in effect are that meats coming to the city killed in slaughter houses outside the city limits are not sanitary, there not .being the conveniences in the way of water nnd sewer to make such killing planls sanitary. The result is that the public health is menaced. Then, too, he ar- gues Ihat if the cily allows the estab- lishment of his abattoir within the city the Dominion government will appoint a meat inspector at this point, and citizens will get Dominion inspected meats, while at the same time Leth- bridge will be in a position to ship meats killed here outside the province. This the city cajinot do for lack of iuspeclion.

"Cologne, Oct. It is not impossible thai. Ambassador Ger- ard is conveying peace proposals to the United States. Before departing for Berlin, he had most important con- Terences with Chancellor Von Beth- i mann-Hollweg, Ihe foreign secretary for the colonies, and several leading members ot the Reichstag. "It is believed here Ihat now is the ime for Washington to make peace. Only Washington can do Ihis, because she possesses 'SUC.1 great Influence with London and Faris.

Press Mew York Ocl on the oncratioiis of Ihe German submarine, or submarines, in the waters adjacent lo the V. S. coast, the .N'ew York Herald says editorially: "A virtual blockade ot New York, and other United Slates ports, has been created. There can be no avoid- ing Ihe issue raised by these acts. II is not whether in individual .cases there has been technical adherence lo the policy ol warning It ib that submarine operations in the lanes of the sea travel leading immediately to United States ports must not be. tolerated. the neutrality at the United States has been grosslj violated, by the coming of the U-5? into a United Stales porl lo acquire informalion concerning the whereabouts of vessels at sea, and her prompt departure from that port upon her mission of destruction. "It is Ihe highest duty of the government of the United States lo go lo any length that may be necessary to put an end to this Prussian war- fare in United States waters, and without a day's delay. The New York Times sayn: "One rash act, a single mistake on tne nart of the U-boat commander, causing the loss of even one bulled Stateser'i life would provoke instant action by the United States gov- ernment Thereafter dispatches to Ambassador Bernstorft could be handed to him in Berlin, and the relations between the two governments says' "The U-53 showed yesterday that she is instructed to pass ships sailing under the United Stales flag, but if a mistake should be made in the case of a United States ship, or if Ihe United Stales citizens lose their lives under flags of be llgerent ships, questions will rise for the United States government which the German s note never sufficiently covered." v i ctooic The typical German view was expressed by the New York Stoats Zeitung, which said: "Although maintaining in port the silence of a sphinx, Lieut. Captain Rose was not many hours out of United states territorial waters before he availed himself of the opportunity of answer- ing collectively all the questions as to his mission on this side of the AUanlic. "They were simple indeed, who thought ihat the German govern- ment was paying poslage on routine correspondence with submarines of Xelatest and roost expensive type. They know now that it was not. me to al, reports to hand, without loss of life and unattended by 'any of those Invasions of our neutral rights, which have so often attached to operations of British warsh PS on BIO BLOW FOR KING CON, IF TRUE Rome, via :London, The whole of the Greek fleet has joined the> revolutionary movement, said n dispatch from; Athens today. Threshing has heen resumed in most jectio Southern Alberta today, and !the farmers anticipale a stretch of clear weather in which to complete operations. Records of heavy yields are begin- ning to come in again. All districts report that the average yield of wheat will he phenomenal, and at least as heavy if not heavier in many cases, than last jear. Thus far the average in wheat lies between 40 and -15 bush- els, while stubble wheat is averaging as high as 30. Anticipating a good year again next year, the farmers are hastening to get as much land in readiness for the next crop. A good deal or summer fallow- ing has been done, and a considerable! area will be ready. One man who has a crop of 2000 acres this year has 1500 ready for next year's crop.

Dr Lafferty, who attended the.' de- ceased, told of his efforts on her be- ialf. He slated that death was due to shock and congestion of internal fgans.

Seventeen vessels are docked here and shipping men estimate that cargoes valued at 000 are tied'up here. Strange Actions Baltimore, Oct. The ap-. pearance of the German sub- marine on the U. S. coast created excitement in local shipping cir- cles today. The North German Lloyd steamer Neckar, which was stationed in the dock beside the submarine Deutschland dur- ng its stay here, left the piers of; [he Eastern Forwarding Com-: pany at Locust Point, and went west to anchor in the river. Then the Rhein, her sister ship, 'got busy coaling at Locust Point, -by" taking alongside two lighters of coal, and had their contents put on- board as fast as machines and men: could work. which fell last nati uie i of blocitag-ihreshing operations Just and others have each exceeded the as they had bout started.
