The committee In charge met at the Yale Club last night and decided to add boxing, racing, billiards, soccer, track and field athletics and every other seasonable sport, activity to the list of aids in the united campaign to raise $170,500,000 for the Red Cross, Y.M.C,4.., Knights of Columbus, ^Jewish Welfare Board, Y. W. C. A., War Community SeiS-ice and the Salvation Army. The original plan had been for each of these activities to run its own drive, but at the suggestion of President Wilson all seven united in one big endeavor. Very fittingly sport has been asked once more to do Its bit. This time it has been asked to do more than its bit, and that it will respond in a surprising way there'is no doubt. The chief committee composed of Herbert li. Pratt, Walter Camp, Dr. Joseph Raycroft, Julian W.

"THE HOUSE OF SERVICE" Traction King Spent $300,000 Yearly on Self, but Denied Wife Money Detroit,/'Oct. 23.-In the Wayne County Divorce Court here today .Mrs. : Elizabeth D. Moore was granted a ; decree of absolute divorce from j Moore, a Port Huron traction king' ;and friend of English nobility. She I alleged neglect and extreme cruelty. 'One of the charges was that Moore � spent $3o"D,000 a year on himself, but refused to pay his wife's hotel bills. | In addition to a decree, Mrs. Moore ' was awarded custody of their eigh- : teen-year-old daughter, ?3,000 a month alimony, and additional sums for the : daughters' inainlpnance. Au added stipulation was that she shall receive ! $300,000 in cash .should, she tire of' the monthly allotment. Moore made his fortune promoting electric Intenirban lines In Michigan. For .sev.-2ral years he has maintained expensive homos in New York and London. Moore and ,Sir John French have been close friends for years and while ! the Field Marshal was in France oar-  ly in-the war, ?,. The race program accounts for the excess expenditure in this item, this having been authorized by the director's at a subsequent nieeting. Office rr.laries and extra help .ihows an over e.xpenditure of $409.07. Among a number of items contributing to this might iK! mentioned the neces-.sity of employment of help to pump the cest^pits during the fair. Over expenditures in other items are for the most part offset by,increased revenuo or inventories on hand. In viev,- of this year's experience, lt| would appear advisable that the bylaws of tile board should be amended to provide that all estimates should be referred either to the finance committee or ihf! manager for investigation and report, before being passed by the board. Dcalii!,- with the subject of entries, a conipari.snn of the total entries for,] tho exhibition with those of the ~1914 event, shows that this years entries compare very favorably with those of tlio provioiis exhibition, when it is considered that this year, our dates clasihcd with those of the Brandon fair, coneertod to be- the greatest live stock exhibition in the west. 1914 1018 Hor,=o.s.............. 337 206 Cattle.............. 347 233 Sheep .............. 89 173 Swine.............. 165 134 Poultry ............. 891 ,401 Grain.s and .sdo'Js....... 70 ' 35 Grasses ............ 42 20 Roots and vegetables ;.. 13 30 Fruit';......... 3 .3 Plants and flowers...... 25 13 Bees and iionfv...... 2 0 Dairy products aitd,^ Bo- meslic numutaclures . 104 39 Fancy Work........... 438 No classes Red Ores 3 work......... 154 Arts............... 106 -133 Natural History ...... -2 0 School work '........- 234 02 stock show was the entry of Percher-ou horses numbering fifty-tour animals. This was'duo to the fact that the Percheron Futurity offered by tlie Canadian Percheron Horse Breeders' association was Judged at Lethbridge. We wisti to express our appreciation of the generous assistance given by the Provincial and Dominion departments of Agriculture, as well as that of the City of Dethbridge in financing our operations. While the amount of the deficit which the city has been called on to advance temporarily to the board may loom large in the public eye, attention might bo called to the fact that the exhibition grounds have been restored to a condition whereby future events may be staged at little expense for repairs, while In addition to this, we are Informed that tlie increased earnings accruing to the street railway during exhibition week were Jn the neighborhood of $2000, this with inventories on hand bringing the net loss to the city down to approximately $2,-500 which has been the customary grant to previous exhibitions. We also wish to express our appreciation of the co-operation of the various city departments, all of which rendered valuable assistance both before and during the fair. We also tender our thanks to the Major Jack Ross Chapter, I.O.D.B., the members of which became responsible for the information bureau and were instrumental in solving the always difficult problem -of accommodating the visitors. The Girls' Auxiliary I.O.D.E. which supplied the necessary assistance at the grand stand, and the Lethbridge Rotary Club under whose supervision the Children's Rest Room and Nursery and the Emergency Hospital were operated. We might say in passing tbat these services were perhaps the most appreciated In connection with the exhibition. Borne twenty cases were dealt with by .the first aid crew in charge of the hospital, while over four hundred children were cared for In the day nursery. We also wish to take this opportunity to thank those who were responsible for the success of the new department created for Red Cross work. A\Tille up to the closing date for entries, this department promised to be an almost flat failure, this was averted through the acfive work of some of the members of the society, and I believe that the entries in this department at Lethbridge exceeded tiiose at any other fair In the province.

Not only was there a violant panic In financial circles, hut (no note was considered in political quarters as being extremely humiliating for the dual monarchy. Austria's Reply Zurich, Oct. 24.-Austria's repl^ to President Wilson, which will soon be sent, will declare that Austria is not disposed to enter into negotiations with the Czecho-Slovaks la Paris, but only with those in Austria, according to the Vienna correspondent of the Frankfort Gazette, who is usually well informed. The note will say further that the re-construction of the Austrian state cannot ^e effected so rapidly that an armistice must be dependent upon, it, and, now that EmperOr Charles' mani-testp has opened the way to reforms, the goyernnient sees no obstacle to an armistice. $ 181.27 ,^ 139,57 ^699.85 6,000.00 1,153.25 IGRAIH READY These Towns Expect to Exceed Last Year's Victory Loan Record Deficit from Rev. &.

With the peace of the world dependent on plain speaking and straight action Wilson deems It his duty to say without trying to soften harsh words that the nations of the world cannot trust the word of those who have boon hitherto masters of the German policy. HIndy Approve Peace Move With the French Army in Prance, Oct. 23,-Field Marshal Von Hlpden-buig, in an order to German officers in tlio field, referring to negotiations for an armistice, declares ho approves the peace movaraont and is obliged to support the government.

Press Is Satisfied New York, Oct. 24.--Ow!ng to the. lateness of the houi*. at which Pfesl-. j dent Wilson's reply to Germany wasi I issued last night, .most of tho maorn-, |lng newspapers restrict themselves to a hurried analysis of the note. The Herald says, leaving all questions of an armistice in the hands ol the militarj- commanders means thao "Germany is not going to be allowed to withdraw her troops in safety from Prance and Belgium, to be re-formed at the German frontier as a wall of safety and to act as Prussianism loaded dice at a peace table. In this, as in his plain notice to Prussianism that it must surrender, the presideut accurately and clearly voices the demand of the American people." The World says: "With language plainer and more solemn than was ever before used in a communication of this kind, thepres-ident repeats his assertion that the government of Germany, which instigated this war, is not to be, trusted. "In this the president takes a position which is absolutely unassailable." The World concludes; "Those who address it (GermanyV, with cannon balls spea^kjhe only language that it understands and it Is with that tongue that the president now �closes tho discussion In Its present phase." Tile Times says:' "This plain meaning of the prehl-dent's answer 'Is tha,t if Germany is not now ready to lay down her arms, then the war which the civilized world is waging against her must contlnuo until she is forced to lay them down. The acceptancfe of these terms oC surrender, as the president points out, will be the best concrete evidence ot Germany's unequivocal apsent to tho principles and conditions of peace he has set forth In his -successive addresses. "The doubts Mr. Wilson expresse.^ as to the reality of the. changes in tha form of government promised in Germany are shared by the peoples of all conntries arrayed against her. But, upon that point he uses the,plainest of words and leaves no room for doubt anywhere In Germany that tho United States can have no dealings with the HohenzoUemi save lor Bur\ render."
