THE 1 II HEALTH THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR Diverted for a moment from the pro- gress of the allies on the war fronts, world attention is directed to the re- cent feat of German submarines in terrorizing shipping along the east Atlantic coast and establishing what Is claimed to he practically a blockade of New York and other U. S. ports. Whether one submarine, that which left Newport again on Saturday after a record trip across the Atlantic, or whether more, are operating, is a guess. Nevertheless, seven ships have been sunk c2 the U. S. coast, mostly British, and war risks on other ships outward bound have been suspended. Many heavily ladea ships have not left port. Although no loss of life is reported, and although the raiding has been carried out in neutral -waters, yet the question immediately arises whether Builds Up The Whole System Those who lake "Kniit-a-tivrs" for the first time, are often astonished at the way it tMJs Hum up and ir.akts them fed belter all They may bo taking "Fniit-a-tlves" for some specific disease, as Constipation, Indigestion, Chronic Headaches or Neuralgia, Kiduey or Bladder Trouble, Rheu- matism or Pain ia the Back.

The reason for the proposal being made to locate this abattoir so close to the heart of the city is a desire to secure water and sewage connections and trackage facilities, which are out P' IA llCKED UP IN ASSINGcm TITO LETHBRIDGE DAILY HERALH WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 11, FOR THE BUSY MAN Recent frosts havo been dlsrtstrous to N'iagaru Peninsular tomato crops.

Success of British COMMENDATION FROM CONSERVATIVE PAPER The -wild land tax of the Alberta government has been more or less freely criticized by the opponents of tie government, as -well as by specu- lators in farm lands. The tax was intended to reach the speculator. The farmer is not affected and he com- mends tie act because it forces va- cant land into cultivation. Since the opponents of the Alberta government are the most persistent critics of the measure, it might be well to convey lo them an opinion expressed in a recent issue of the Toronto News, 'a pronounced Conservative newspaper, and a frequent critic of .the Alberta government. It says: The Grain Growers' Guide urges thai a surtax shonld he laid on vacant lane In Manitoha as is done in Alberta and Saskatchewan. This form of taxation not only increases the public revenue but forces landholders, absentee or otherwise, to have their holdings cul- tivated. Land-holding companies be- come more active, immigration agents and .resident holders of unused land find it necessary to secure tenants or lann the land themselves. It would be unwise to estahlish a system of land taxation that would discourage immigration, but the justice of taxing -vacant land tor ''school, municipal and provincial purposes cannot be ques- tioned and the system could be applied in the older as well as the newer pro city, compared with tie location o such plants in other Canadian cities. Then again if it is an industry that will expand, the property it is acquir- ing does not warrant expansion. Ad- jacent property is held at high figures, too high wo think to tempt an indus- try to invest in much of it in order its expand. It must also be remem- bered tiat this particular plant is not likely to be the only one established here. Other concerns will approach the city and ask for locations, and un- Rev. J.

Co. C. W. Hoodie, of Hamilton, settled his million-dollar action against di- rectors of the Dominion Power i will have abattoirs in different sections of the city. We think the city council should thoroughly inquire into the policy adopted in other cities in dealing with this problem. After having secured this information the action taken should he with a view to the future development of this industry. If the abattoirs are to he privately conduct- ed, it would he wise to plan to have them in the same district and where there would be room for expansion. Of course the desirable plan would be a municipal abattoir, hut this is out of tie question under present con- ditions. The commissioners should ocate the abattoir where it can he served with -water, sewage and track- age, where it can expand and where other plants can also find accommo- dation, -keeping in mind always that tie location should be as distant from the residential district as possible.

That is one consolation to the fanner. Henry Ford is going to' support Wil- son for TJ. S. president. If all the ment should be given to the establish- E0n. ment of a modem abattoir in Leth.-' bridge. It is so closely related to au in- dustry of large proportions in Southern Alberta that it Is necessary for the suc- CPSI of that industry that there should be a large, well equipped abattoir here last now there is a movement on foot to locate an abattoir in the city. Many citizens view this project as a slaughter house rather than an abattoir. No matter the word, they fear that, either a slaughter house or mn abattoir, in a well settled section of the city will he a nuisance and will depreciate the value of property. On the other .hand the promoters claim that the abattoir will be void of in. will be just as ac- ceptable to the community round- about as a greenhouse. As long as this difference of opinion exists there will be dissatisfaction and protest.

Grant Jail, vice-president and general man-; ager of the O.P.R., on .being asked this morning it he had anything to say in connection with tho report which ap- peared in yesterday's newspapers as .o the differences of .opinion between Jie conductors and trainmen and the company on its western lines, spoke is follows: "I am loath at this stage >f'the proceedings to make a state- ment of any kind, lest it should be misunderstood, "nut under the tryins conditions existing at the present, It would seem to me that the public should be !n possession of further facts than those which have so far ap- peared in the press. "In the first place, I would like to i-efer to the statement issued at Cal- gary to the effect that the men want- ed a schedule equivalent to, that ob taining on roads on the other side of the international boundary. This is a mis-statement. Tho a.s I under- stand it, do not wsBt.-the schedules prevailing south of the line. During the negotiations they were offered the schedule applying, on the Northern Pacific or any other railway south of the line, in northwestern territory and promptly rejected it on the grounds that'the present .Canadian Pacific was superior from their standpoint. "in 1913, the conductors and tram- men employed on the western lines of the Canadian Pacific railway gave no- tice of their desire for certain Chang- 13'in the rules of service for the pur ose of obtaining 'indirectly a large ncrease in compensation. They en- ered on negotiations with the coin lariy, hut settlement was not reached and a hoard of conciliation was form d in April, composed of Judge Ounn, hairman- David Campbell, represent- ng the men, and Isaac Pitblado, rep esenting the company. In July 1914, he majority of the board brought down an award, which parried with It certain concessions to me men and the company accepted it un- der protest and agreed to put into ef- fect. The representatives of the. men, lowever, declined to accept this award I mil in Aug. 1914, wrote to the minis- ter of labor, the Hon. Mr. Crothers, reviewing the whole matter and slat- ng In; part as follows: Statement of Men "Having, regard, however, to the facts in connection witli the recent war developments ia which the Brit- ish Empire is so deeply interested and involved It has been decided lihat those matters will he left in abeyance for a shorter or longer .period, before being submitted to men on the line. "This action Is taken with feeling of the most absolute loyalty and re- gard for our Canadian anl British In- terests In the struggles now being waged in Europe and because we feel that no personal contentions can be for a moment pressed forward to such an extent as to possibly embar- rass under certain contingencies the interests referred to. "They added that they would regard it as an unfriendly act If the company applied the award of tho board of con- ciliation, and did not leave tne pres- ent Khtdnlt In nffecl. In tne time and In of this attitude the company acceded to their wishes. "There was nothing further In re- gard to this matter until a few weeks ago, when the general committee, rep- resenting the conductors, trainmen and yardmen over the whole system of the C. P. H. assembled In Winnipeg, asked for an interview. They inti- mated to the representatives of the company at that meeting that they lad finally decided to reject the award brought down by the majority of the board of conciliation and asked-that the company agree to the original de- mands, on which "the hoard of concili- ation had passed, 'intimating that as they could not see their way clear to make any change In tills presentation they considered that the matter stood exactly as it was when negotiations were suspended in August, 1914, .and that they did not consider it neces- sary to submit the matter, to a further board of conciliation before taking whatever action they thought advls- able'to enforce their demands. "While I thought such action on the part of the men very drastic, having in view the state of war existing and the fact that we are handling a very great quantity of munitions, etc., for Great Britain and her allies, In add! tio3, of course, to the movement of troops and further on account of thei fact that our relations with the men bave always been most amicable, 1 considered it necessary that we should ivold, If possible, anything approacu- ng a disturbance of transportation, at the present time, and accordingly i suggestion was made to put Into ef- fect not only the concessions awarded jy the board of conciliation In 1814. jut also a further 'concession, which would have involved a very'heavy ad- ditional annual expenditure for wages, [could not, .however'see my way clear to agree to two or items which 'Hi. my opinion would have Invol- ved the acceptance, by us'of a false basis for computing compensation in train services.
