HOME DEALING Sr.pt. 'Ith, 1D15. Editor Lethbridge Herald: Sir,-I havo been watching for that essay on tho homo trading to bo writ-ton by pupils umlnr 14 years. I havo nlways boon an advoeat.o of homo'trad-inp. but this Lethbridge of ours, is very hard to hack up in tho homotradn argumont. Ono re.iHon for this la tho lack of matorlal tho merchants keop on hand, tho other ono Is thoir ignorance of what they havo got. I saw a mochanlc Itero two months ago looking for a standard l,4 inch holt tap. Ho enmo Into town oneo a wook and wont over tho hardwaro stores with tho nanio results each time. On asking for n. Vi inch standard bolt tap ho would bo Informod they had thorn hut upon looking It would bo found that tho nearoat thoy had wan 1-.12 Inch or 1-04 inch over size, but at no time or store could any of tho morchantn toll him without detaining lilia-tlmt they didn't havo them, I know an onglnoor who was unable to procure a small standard bolt tap lioro. Aftur waiting for over threo months ho sent to Raton's, Winnipeg, and had ono back itv six days. lie says ho will wait to hoo how long it will take tho Lothbridxo Btoro to got this one. I know another mechanic who ordoroil a set of dies for threading bolta. He Is waiting now over four months. I saw another man wanting to buy u book to teach his children at home as school was so far away thoy couldn't walk. He also wanted an Atlas of tho World. Though ho tried all book stores In Lothhridgo ho couldn't jet them, but ho had no trouble In getting them from Katon's, Winnipeg. An-thoi' argument to fall down on in supporting tho homo trade is why men "re unable to buy Irouaors tho full standard length in the cheaper gmdos, whllo they can get them In tho higher grades. You can scarcely buy it pair of trousers :!4 inch leg In tho cheaper IpadftB in Lethbridge. t could montlon lots of those laekts In Lothhrldgo that'll not In Calgary. Hoping the merchants of Lothbrldgo will wako up lo bettor JmsinesH, 1 am, air, Yours truly, :- JOHN FRASKU, Cunorul Ucllvoory, iiethbridgo. Ottawa. Sept. fi.--Early conclusion of "slacker" treaties with the' French, Helgian and Italian governments is expected. For some time negotiations havo been under way to bring about with other allied governments arrangements in regard to military service similar to those concluded with tho United States. When members of the government were. In London, it. is understood, the whole mutter was discussed with the Imperial governments. Negotiations ant now said to be so far advanced that satisfactory arrangements are expected to r��ult within a short time. The position of the allied "slacker'' in Canada is an anomalous one. If lie has declined to obey the call to military service from his own government ho is regarded by it as a deserter una should he return home, is liable to be shot. Hut so long as he remains in Canada the law of his own country does not reach him. Furthermore he is exempt from the provisions of the Canadian military service act as this applies to male British subjects only. With the ratification of treaties sim-iliar to that concluded with the United States the anomaly would cease. Subjects of the allied countries concerned who are resident In Canada would either have to serve in the armies of their own country or bo liable to draft in tho Canadian army. SERIOUS PROTESTS TO PRESENCE Of Sorious protests to the presence of the Monnonltos in Canada, under the agreement which exempts them from military service la being heard from all parts of Canada now. Lethbridgo district Is particularly interested in this as tho largest colony of the Mon-nonltes is in this district. During I ho past few months, tho Mennonltes have purchased hundreds of thousand:) of dollars' worth of land in this vicinity. Their first purchases wore tho Ferguson Haneh at Maclood, and tho Tracht farm at Stirling. Then thoy bought the Uobertson ranch at Hnloy, and tho big chunk of tho Mclntyro ranch which was mentioned last, week and for which thoy paid �tU8,000. Tho Winnipeg Kreo Press is the latest to Issue warntuf? regarding these colonies, which it does in tho following tonus: "We formally drew the government's attention to the matter. It calls for prompt registration, for repudiating or for at least the Unit tut Ion of engagements that may have been entered into by colonization officials In excess of their authority and for tho laying down of tho principle to bo inflexibly adhored to, that henco-forth Canada is for the Canadians anil for those who are prepared in return for a home lo become Canadians to tho fullest requirements of citizenship." Makes Public Protest. With the editorial is printed a public protest against tho policy of permitting people to come into Canada as settlors who claim military exemption, by l>. A, Koss, M.l', who says that, hundreds of Mennonltes and other brotherhoods with similar tenuis have boon warned to leavo the United States or accept their responsibility as citizens and that they are coming into the pralilo provinces buying up laud and holiiK welcomed to an alarmlus number. With the French Army in Prance, Sept. n. -The retreat of the Hermans, provoked in the firsl instance by their secoiei defeat on the Mani''. is continued and extended in order to release enough divisions to form a manoeuvring mass and regain a liberty of action of which Marsha! Koch's brilliant operations deprived them. Thai is the expert opinion based on the best official evidence of the condition of the German army and the views prevailing among the German officers. The impression derived from the same sources is that the. military party in Germany, which is still in absolute control, will give up only in the last, extremity; that if they are unable lo constitute reserves sufficient to resume, the war movement, they will again try to impose an offensive position on the allies in the hope of tiring them out and holding a considerable part of northern France and Belgium as pledges with which to bargain when the occasion arises. In the same expert opinion the Germans are checked out but not yet mated. They still have resour. t.-s that will enable them to continue a stout defence and oblige the allies to make a hard effort to clinch the victory, which though Inevitable, may still be further off than it would appear to be from optimistic speculations that have been backed on recent success. speaking of the .
