Sept. 12.~A( Jtancliester today,Premier Lloyd C5eorge received addresses from three deputations representing the Armenian committee of _ Manchester, the Syrian Association of Manchester and the Zionist committee of Manchester, who were introduced by the noted orientalist.

AlapR from the German peoples' pitiless desire of contiuest. the allies v.-ould at an early date see the downfall of German power. The prenfler's reply to the Zionists was as follows: "It is with feelings of tlie most grateful satisfaction that 1 accept your address. The aspirations which the raitUitudes of your race scattered throughout the world found a natural response in the minds of those responsible for the government of thi.s country, because Ihey are in permanent accord with the sentiments of the principles of Groat Bri-:ain. For League of-Nations. Premier Lloyd George said he was all for a league of nations and that, in fact, a league already had been begun. The British Empire, he said, was a league of free nations and that the allied countries fighting tho battle for international rights were now a ieagtio of nations. "To end all wars," the premier said, "wo must impose a durable peace upon our enemy. The Prussian military pmver must not only be beaten, but Germany herself must know and the German people must know that their rulers have outraged the laws of- humanity and that Prussian strength cannot protect them from punishmenc. Must Be Last War. "This must be the last war,"' Jlr. Lloyd George said. "Don't let us be misled that the establishment of a league of nations without power will in itself secure the world against a catastroplje. A league of nations with Prusiian military power triumphant would be a league of fox and geesi:-one fox and many geese. The j allies would greatly diminish in numbers." The only sure foundation tor a league of nations, the premier said, was! a victory for the allies. Peace must be of a kind, he added, that commends itself to the comiiion sense conscience of the nations. As a whole, it must not be dictated by extreme men on either side. "U'e shall neither accept lor ourselves nor impose on our loes a Brest-Litovsk' treaty." Continuing the premier said. "We cannot allow the Bolsheviki to force upon us a peace so UumiUating to'dis-i BOY INJISIAKE But Prompt Action by Doctor Saved Pincher Creek Lad's Life THURSDAY, SE^TEMBEn^l2^9ia (Special to the llcniltl) Pincher Creek, Sept. 11.-Jlr. and Mrs. Thos. Craig and thoir youngest son had a terrible experience on Tuesday morning, when a desert spoonful of iodine was mistaken for Cascara. Mrs. Craig had the misfortune while driving last week, to be struck in the right eye by a flying grasshopper, which left a very painful injury. After unsuccessfully trying for several days to restore the eye, tho left eye, in sympathy, bec��e affected, which caused Mrs. Craig's health to bccoino very much impaired, and treatment by a ph.vsiciaii necessary. ' On Sunday last the eldest sou be-canie ill, and on Monday night the .vonngest also, both sutfei;ing from stomach derangement. On Tuesday morning about four o'clock Mrs. Craig, intending to give her youngest son cascara, through suffering from the pain in her eyes and her impaired eyesight, made the terrible mistake of giving iodine instead. Fortunately tlie error was at once detected and Dr. John Gillespie hastily summoned, who gave instructions to be carried out immediately and In a remarkably short time arrived itt the Craig ranch and to the aid of the distracted parents. ^On 'Wednesday the little boy �was pronounced "out of danger" and all parties so greatly indisposed "speedily recovering."

Mayor Thompson carried the city by 17,000, fewer than one-third of the normal number of voters going to the polls. Former Gov. Richard Yates and William Mason, incumbent, were nominated by the Republicans for congress-men-at-large, although Mason had been opposed because of his alleged attitude toward the war. They will contest the election with M. H. Cleary and W. E. -Williams, Democrats. Another congressional candidate whose opponents attacked his war policy was Fi-ed A.

The message adds: "The word must be to hold till the end, to remain united behind the armies and to alleviate the burdens of the ..soldiers and comfort them. The courage (Jf th'elPWJh' s way ai us the womeit :show8 u.-it follow to has- ten the hcnir ot^victory," iSvxiiCi to tho Herald) Fernie. Sept. 11.-The Rolgers interview published in the Herald has been the cause of much comment. A call upon President Hunter and Secretary JIartin. of Gladstone Local, brought out the tniners' side of the present deadlock, which is decidedly different from the side presented tJ your reporter by President Rogers. When asked to state in what particular Jfr. Rogers' statements were contrary to tiieir conception of facts, it was clear from thei- answers, that the difference rests upon a very wide basis, and to answer them would take a great deal of care and time. , To begin; they were disposed to treat lightly Mr. Rogers' statement that it would be doubling the danger of death from gas explosions to have twice the number of men working at the same time, as would be the case if the single shift system were to take the place of the present double shifting. That the increase of gas would follow the production of a larger tonnage on one shift, was not' denied by these miners, but they contended that a rest of sixteen hours would conduce to better safety by having the ventilation system clear all parts of the mine diiring the long rest, and that the tendency to settle the'overhead strata, which the result from the decrease in extending the faces where the faces were extended in area, necessary to furnish working places for all the men at the face for only /eight hours, would result in the placing oC but two sets of timber, where, nnder the present sy.stem four sels would have to be placed within the tw�nly-four hours, iu order to keep the root supported as it shpuld be. Not "Work" So Much. In other words, the mine would, not "work" nearly so much when the faces were driven a short distance, as is tlie case where they are being driven much farther during the day and night, shifts, and, consequently, not nearly so much gas would be throT^Ti off in proportion to coal moved. They also pointed out to the press man that it was strange that while Mr. Rogers seemed to shrink from the responsibility of doubling the number of men exposed to death if an explosion should take place when all the miners were in the mine at woik, his company should be willing to take this risk providing the men would agree to having three men in a, room, or would consider a single shift provided a reduction of 714 cents per ton on contract coal would be accepted. The interviewed here undertook to interview the interviewer, and wanted to know what he thought about such a'^roiiosition, but as the pump handle was rigged to work the other, way, no results followed. ^ A Side Light. Another matter developed during the interview which throws a side light on the conditions under which the miners have to work, and that is the fact that in double shitting much dissatisfaction resulted from two sets of men working in tho same room on different shifts. - Two good minors might, be working on one shift and leave their working places in good shape tor the two coming after; these two might prove to bo, and often do turn out I'd be the kind that shifts all things possible upon the ^other fellow, regardless of square dealing. If the single shift was adopted, two men would have the same room and would find their face jtist as they had left it the day before. Stand By Reports. The miners seem disposed to stand by the reports and recommendations of such men as Engineer Rige, government inspectors and mine inspectors, anjl are firm in'their contention tJtJJt these reports justify them in taking the stand they have, and the fejOOO for Salvation Army work, for the "Boys Over There'' and the Children at Home This is the first general appeal onliehalf of the Army.
