CROP REPORTS ARE ENCOURAGING SOME FEATURES NOT BRIGHT BUT AVERAGE IS CAUSE FOR GRATITUDE Winnipeg. Man., Sept. sur- vey of harvesting gathered from coun- try correspondents of the flliyjitoua Free Press shows that in spito of bad weather apparently 75 per cent, is cut, but evidently little, if any, of it can be .said to be perfectly safe as practically no threshing has been done, in 208 out of 212 points heard from. Excessive rains are reported ilia weather still unsettled and uncertain. Replies show the following Wheat cut, 75 percent.; oats, 45 percent.; barley, 80 percent.; flax about 10 'per- cent.; excessive rains almost "miver- sal; at 121 points ground too soft for binders to work at 49 points grain was reported sprouting in the stocks at 14 points frost was re- ported, varying from one to four de- grees. These occurred mainly in sec- tions where wheat was far advanced and the damage, therefore, will be light. Only four points still desire rniore twine, but 50 points want ad- ditional harvest hands, the number re- quired varying from 25 to 200. A number of points report late grain as not ripening. On the whole the. report is more .encouraging than might have heen ex- pected fcfter two weeks o! almost continuous bad. weather. It is impossible to read the indivi- dual reports, however, without being impressed with the gravity of the situation should this weather con- tinue. A peculiar feature of the re- port is the abnormally small propor- tion of Max that has been cut and the extremely small amount of threshing that has been accomplished. Where threshing has been done there are a number of complaints that wheat is not hardening in the stook as it should do. GOVERNMENT HAD FOUR MAJORITY Sydney, N. SAV., Sept.

THE DUKE HAVING GOOD TIME Calgary, 'Alta., Sept. in brilliant sunshine under a sky ol cloudless blue, Calgary today in com- parison with the rain swept Calgary of yesterday is a city transformed. Yesterday's deluge did surprisingly little damage to the decorations, which are very largely oE a substan- tial character, and the city is full of life and color, the crowded streets with the thousands of visitors at- tracted by the royal visit and tha Stampede presenting a spectacular sight. Owing to the conditions of the grounds after the rain the breakfast with the cowboys at the stampede grounds was cancelled very greatly to the regret of the Duke. At half past ten the Royal party drove to the stampede grounds, There the grand march past of all the cowboys, wo- men riders, Indians and others tak- ing part-in the stampede was per- formed in a very much more effective iranner than was possible under tho drenching downpour of yesterday. His Royal Highness, who was accom- panied by the Duchess and Princess Patricia, reviewed the long and spec- tacularly variegated cavak'rte, after which he reviewed the cadets and boy, scouts. This afternoon at half past two on the stand in front of the city hall the Duke presents certifi- cates of merit to the successful can- didates at the Royal Academy of Mu- sic examinations. Immediately L afterwards in tho council chamheis of the city hall, the Duchess and Princess Patricia receive addresses of welcome from the Wo- men's Canadian club, and the Daugh- ters of the Empire. After these cere- monies the Hoyal party will return to their headquarters where they will don their motoring clothes and take an automobile trip to the country, visiting the Indian reserve and other points of interest.

VIEW RATHER VAIN NATIONALIST EDITOR SLAPS AT ENGLAND CURRIES FAVOR WITH WASHINGTON Berlin, Sept, Berlin Post, the leading Nationalist paper, in an editorial article today oil England and Germany in American public op- inion, says: "Americans are always friendly to Crermauy, and they also know how England stands -with. Germany. The United States and Germany are the coming nations, and they are well aware that England is now in full de- cadence socially. "That decadence must lead to poli- tical decadence, as is always the case in history. On the other hand, Am- ericans know that if the world's peace is preserved, It will not be by Eng- land, but only by the, German, Kaiser. Therefore, there is no reason why any ill feeling should be created -between Germany and the United States." The Post urges the German, press not to Join in the howling about Pan- ama. It continues: "England, has been defeated by Am- erican diplomacy. Conditions will foe all the .better for Germany. Germany is tired of stopping before England, taking her chestnuts from the fire. We- must wrestle England in every in- stance, even If England wants to re- sort to force. If Germany sticks at America's side in the present conflict war will be avoided, and England will only sustain one more diplomatic blow."

The other two are established at Calgary and Edmonton. There arc in all sev- enteen branch offices in Canada.
