Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - September 6, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 6. 1918 iKvnBmmm vailt mnMJO PAGE THREE THAT SON-IN-LAW OF, PA'S By Wellington | \t WT C^iife 1^-1 V\\> . nrrtEw MORE MINUTES HAVE ELAPSED. britain growing independent in supply of potash Blast Furnace Dust Is New and Startling Source of Supply Now Tjondon, Sept. G.-The board of trade journal puTilishos a remarkable article on the British supplies of potash showing the important progress �which has been made during the war in the production of potash in Great Britain. One of the most startling sources of the new suppl.v Is from blast furnace dust, from which potash is obtained by a cheap and simple process, consisting primarily, in an addition of a small proportion of common salt to the charge of the furnace which releases the potash in tho ore and causes it to be volatlzed with tho emerging gasses as. potassium chloride. As the result of the experiments on a large scale it was estimated that it would bo possible to recover fifty thousand tous of potash salt* a year from furnace dust alone, enough practically to meet tho needs of,the country. Large quantities of potash can simi-iarly be collected from fumes and dust Irom cement kiins and potash now is being- sold by many cement manufac turers who hitherto had no idea that Buch valuable matter could be so easily collected. While these promise to be the greatest source of pptash, the article also describes other sources, the development of which is not being neglected. The article concludes: , "Each niouth that passes renders Great Britain more Independent of German potash and more able to disregard Germany's continued threat of Iioiding other nations to a ransom for Dotash." SIR DAVID BEATTY CONFIDENT VICTORY London, Sept. E,- (Canadian Press Dispatch to Reuter's Limited).-Admiral Sir David Beatty, replying to a message from the Trades Union Congress, said that the grand fleet was convinced corapleto victory would crowu the continued efforts of the empire and the allies and the sacrifices will bring forth a; new world, wherein all that was best in humanity could have free development. The reading of tho message was greeted with loud cheers. to catch all the allied "slackers Treaties to be Effected With French, Belgian and Italian Governments People's Forum Cotnmunlcationa under thia must bear the signatures writers. heading or the HOME DEALING Sept. 4th, 1918. Editor Lethbridge Heral'd: Sir,-I have been watching for that essay on the home trading to be written by pupils under 14 years. I have always been an advocate of home'trad-Ing, but this Lethbridge of ours, is very hard to back up in the hometrade argument. One reason for this is the lack of materlar the merchants keep on hand, the other one is their Ignor-knce of what they have got I saw a mechanic here two months ago looking for a standard M inch bolt tap. He came into town once a week and went over the hardware stores with the same results each time. On asking for a Vi inch standard bolt tap he would be Informed they had them but upon looking It would be found that the nearest they had was 1-32 inch or 1-64 Inch dyer size, but at no time'or store could-any of the merchants tell him without detsiining him-that they didn't have them. , . I knbw'an eng:ineer who,was unable to procure a small standard bolt tap liere.. After waiting for over three months he sent to Eaton's, Winnipeg:, and had one back in six daya. He say� bo will wait to see how long it will take the Lethbridge store to get this one. I know another mechanic who ordered a set of dies for threading boUs. He is waiting now over four mouths. I saw another man wanting to buy a book to teach his children at home aa school was so far away they couldn't walk. H� also wanted an Atlas of the World. Though he tried all book stores In Lethbridge he couldn't �et them, but he had no trouble in getting them from Eaton's, Winnipeg. Another argument to tall down on in supporting the home trade, la why men �ra unable to buy trousers the full standard length in the cheaper grades, while they can got them In the higher grades. You can scarcely buy a pair of trouiers 34 inch leg in the cheaper (trades in Lethbridge. I could mention Iota of these lacks In Lethbridge that's not In Calgary. Hoping tho merchants of Lethbridge will wake up to better ^li8ineBS, I am. sir, Yours truly, JOHN PRASEJR. � ^ General Dellveery, Lethbridge. Ottawa, Sept. C.-Early conclusion of "slacker" treaties with the French, Belgian and Italian governments is expected. For some time negotiations have been under way to bring about with other allied governments arrangements in regar'd to military service similar to those concluded with the United States. When members of the government were in London, it is understood, the whole matter was discussed with the imperial governments. Negotiations are now said to be so far advanced that satisfactory arrangements are expected to result within a short time. The position of the allied "slacker" in Canada is an anomalous one. If he has declined to obey the call to military service from his own govern-mant he is regarded by it as a deserter anTl shoiild he return home, is liable to be shot. But 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 thia applies to male British subjects only. With the ratification of treaties slm-iliar to that concluded with the United Slates 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 be liable to draft in the Canadian army. , serio�p1ests to presence of the Serious protests to the presence of the Mennonites In Canada, under the agreement which exempts them from military service Is being heard from all parts of Canada now. Lethbridge .district Is particularly interested in this as the largest colony of the Mennonites is in this district. During the past few mouths, the Mennonites have purchased hundreds of thousands of dollars' worth of land in this vicinity. Their first purchases were .the Ferguson Ranch at Macleod, and the Tracht farm at Stirling. Then they bought the Robertson ranch at Haley, and the big chunk of the Mclnlyre ranch which was mentioned last, week and for which they paid f048,000. The Winnipeg Free Press Is the latest to Issue warning regarding these colonies, which it does in the following terms: "We formally drew the government's attention to the matter. It calls for prompt registration, for repudiating or for at least the limitation of engagements that may have been entered into by colonization officials In excess ot their authority and for the laying down of the principle to be inflexibly adhered to, that henceforth Canada Is for the Canadians and for those who are prepared in retura for a home to become Canadians to the fullest requirements ot citizenship." Makes Public Protect. With the editorial is printed a public protest against the policy of permitting people to come into Canada as settlers who-claim military exemption, by D. A. Ross, M.P., who says that hundreds ot Mennonites and other brotherhoods with similar tenets have been warned to leave the United States or accept their responsibility as citizens and that, they are com-ing into the prairie provinces buying up land and beiug welcomed to an alarmioe number. hun pun is to shorten front and regain initiative �V^ith the French Army in France, Sept. 5.-The retreat of the Germans, provoked in the first instance by their second defeat on the -Marne, is continued and extended In order to release enough divisions to form a manoeuvring mas* and regain a liberty ot action of which Marshal Foch's brilliant operations deprived them. That 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 to 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 pledge.^ 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 resources 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. labor speaking of the complote agreement that existed between the American government and Uibur on tlie subject of the war, Mr. Gompers said he did not agree with the old goveruments of England in their troaimcnt of Ireland. "My sympathy wiw with Ireland and now is with tho hoart, of real Ireland," he declared. He nclded i.lial after the Boer war the conquered Boers were found fighting for their moliior country and that EnKlaiid .should have pledged herself to grant Ireland her just demands for homo rnlo. The labor congres.s presented Mr. Bowen with a gold watch as a token of its respect and gave Mr. Gompers fiome sliver plate for Mrs. Gompers, NOTICE TO CLAIMANTS AND CREDITORS IN THE MATTER OF THE ESTATE OF NELS JOILXSTON STENDE, ALLEGED LUNATIC.
