Box 805 CHARTERED Baron Shaughnessy Declares Western Conditions Satisfactory (Spociul In the TToralrl) Edmonton, Sept.. 21.-That western icondltions are, on the whole, a source of Intense satisfaction, was the statement of Baron Shaughnessy upon his arrival here this afternoon. His Lord-ehip did not discuss present problems with his wonted freedom as lie was Buffering from a cold contracted a hort time ago. The distinguished party arrived in Edmonton at 5.15 this afternoon and was met at the C.P.H. depot by several prominent citizens among whom �were His Honor Lieutenant-Governor Brett, Justice Beck, Mayor I-I. M. Evans, James Ramsay, Lieut. Turgeon, Hon. C. R. Mitchell, H. H. Parlee, K. r-should be the �'tn of every organization or institution juBt now. "Too much money is being wasted and there are war purposes that show a crying need for support. Our company is more than willing to do everything possible in aid of war projects an" government need only ask our co-operation in any of these. The land settlement scheme is already before the government and we are pledged to give every assistance in our" Lord Shaughnessy said he could have wished the western crops to have been more successful but there was no call for pessimistic forebodings particularly in the Edmonton district where wheat is not altogether the basic product. He said he was delighted to find a strong feeling of contentment on the coast. There the people were prosperous and secure in every prospect of future growth. Ho �was^ also pleased to find that the name spirit extended itself into the; prairies. "Your prospects here are very reassuring," he said, "and I am glad to And the crop conditions are' not so hopeless as was at first reported." Baron Shaughnessy was reluctant to say much regarding the railway and the government. "I have already stated," he said, "that government ownership of railways is dangerous. Many ft theory that is sound enough on paper is apt to lead to disturbing ends when tried out, particularly in such unusual times as these, when conditions are as they nearer were before. Only a short time ago" Secretary Mc-Adoo of the United States, Issued a circular to railway employees asking them to perfprni their duties as they had under former conditions. When railway men' become government employees' they are dangerously liable to fprm themselves into a bureaucracy which is" fatal to efficient service." I War Over In, Year His Lordship was asked if his opinions in regard to tho war were still unchanged and his answer was in the affirmative. He said that although his opinions In this regard had become hackneyed through repetition, his convictions were so strong that he felt able' to reiterate them. The beginning of the end was in sight, he'declared, and the victorious advance of the allies day by day only served to strengthen bis belief that it wo old all Amsterdam, Sept. 23.-A draft of uu.,, - constitution for a league of nations, nice mujc. Hi| I worked out in detail by Mathias Erz-d conditions to ' berger, clerical member of tho Gor-1 man reichstag, is published in the Vossische Zeltung of Berlin. It is taken from a book entitled "The League of Nations, the way to peace," which Erzberger will publish soon. The first section of this constitu# lion, dealing with the organization of such a league, says: "Any sovereign state can enter the league, which shall be considered to have been formed when the following powers are among those who have announced adherence: Germany, Great Britain, France, United State* and Russia." The Hague would be the seat of the league and there the international bureau would conduct its business. Each state, with the approval of its parliament, would appoint one delegate. The international bureau would ,be controlled by a permanent admin-i istrativo counicl consisting 'of the representatives of the federated powers, with the Dutch foreign minister as chairman. Dealing with fundamental laws, the second section says : "The league shall guarantee the ter-.ritorial possessions of each federated d the I state, as well as undisturbed possessions of colonies. Each state would be independent in the conduct of its Internal and foreign affairs within the limits of the league's constitution. ' 1 "States whose governments, with the assent of'their parliaments, declare their permanent neutralization would be recognized by all members of the league, as permanently neutral and would enjoy the league's protection. "All available means .would be used against any federal state outside of the league which attacks a federal state or takes up arms without having applied to arbitration court or awaited its judgment, or-which takes up arms instead of accepting its judgment. AIembers of the league would mutually undertake to cut down and steadily reduce their land, naval and aerial forces, according to a fixed standard to be agreed upon. They woultt further undertake not to tise their forces for auy oth�r objects than the maintenance of 'internal [order, defense of their territory against attack and for joint execution of the league's mandates. "Figures showing the annual expenditure for armnnent, the number of, troops under arms, war materials on hand and the number of warships in commission would be communicated annually to The Hague bureau, which Would publish them. The constitution provides for economic equality and f6r the principle of the open door, all members of the league granting each other most favored nation treatment. "For the first decade after the formation of the league each states' surplus of raw materials would be divided between the other federal states, according to a standard to he agreed upon. This would be respective of the imports of the year, the output and the special needs of individual states due to the war. "Members of the league would recognize freedom of the seas, straits, canals aud connecting seas, both bank* of which arc not in possession of the same federal state, would be internationalized and their fortifications retained, guarded by a command consisting of contingents from all the federated states and 'commanded in ro-t�tidn '.'very three years by a delegate Mayor Hardie was severely condemned from the pulpit in the city yesterday. The occasion of the criticism of the mayor was his letter which appeared in The Herald on Friday concnrn.'ng the moral conditions of Vie iiity and of the morality of men ;;cni;":i!lv. Rev. Mr. Cragg in Wesley, condemned Mr. Hardie's letter as one which disployed an entire absence of faith in the principles of the Christian religion upon which our civilization was based, and as such constituted a challenge to the Christian church and to every Christian citizen. Had the letter been written by a private citizen, he said, it would have been unworthy of any notice whatever. The whole tone of the letter was beneath the dignity of the pulpit. Written by the representative of the citizen body, however, it could not go un-noticed. Mayor Hardie should remember that he was speaking for the citizens generally in his office of mayor. Speaking first with reference to the general comments of Mayor Hardie's letter. Mr. Cragg said there were two theories of world growth one that It was getting worse, and the other that it was growing better. He believed in the latter. He instanced what had been accomplished only within the past 100 years, the progress of the Christianizing of the heathen lands, the progress of the status of women, who less than lOjl years ago were treated as slaves, the ad-'; vancement of chjld legislation, the progress of the care of the health of the people, and many other phases of life. Hit Infidelity Mr. Cragg declared he criticized the letter of Mayor Hardie because of its absolute* infidelity. It was a declaration against the principles of Christianity. Mayor. Hardie spoke of three sides of human nature, but he said Mayor Hardie had magnified the animal side of man. He had said it was not for people to meddle with man's animal instincts. Why then, had we laws at all? Why not let men do just as they pleased? Mayor Hardie had contended it was. impossible to change the man in whom animalism dominated, except to convert him into a constant hypocrite. Mr. Cragg took issue with this. He instanced the great conversions of the ages, such as that of St. Paul and of Luther, and down to our present day, where he instanced the community told of fci Bigsby's book, where the worst of criminals had been changed into upright men by the influence of a good woman. Mr, Cragg went on to deal with what the mayor had said about conditions in the city, and he repeated insertions he had made before that there was not a section of the, city which did not have a house of ill-fame. He quoted statements which had been made public by other prominent men in the city testifying to the openness of sin in the city. ^le also criticized the mayor very strongly for his attitude towards his -critics. Those who dared to criticize the mayor on his attitude towards the moral conditions of the city called down a tirade of abuse every time. Let us get together,*- let us, as we have been advised in one paper, face the facts, and get together for a clean-up of the city," concluded Mr. Cragg. AS A MILITARY UNIT Calgary, Sept. 21'.-Colonel A. Bowen Perry, commissioner of the Royal North West Mounted Police, who is iu Calgary today, is very much pleased that the mounted police are recognized as a unit, and are being used as such in France When it was found that reinforcements were wanted for the cavalry brigade in France the Royal North West Mounted Police were at once looked to for the necessary men.' At first it was believed that the men enlisted from this force would only he used as drafts to fill up the vacancies in regiments already at the front, hut since then it lias been found possible to use the mounted police as a unit, to be known as the Royal North West Mounted Police regiment, and the 7�iu officers, non-coms, and men now in England have that standing in the Canadian army. A squadron has been raised from the same old and honored force for servicj? in Siberia, and six officers and 184 non-co'mniiKsioned officers and men, with 234 saddle horses and 38 team horses, are now at Regina, waiting the order to move. Owing to instructions from headquarters that the number comprising the Mounted Police squadron at Regina for the Siberian expedition might be increase^ there are still a few vacancies on the force, which, however, will be filled in a few days.

With the light crop a few hours' work and the machine passes on to the next place. The'yield is about meeting the expectations of most of the farmers. Though there are five elevators with wide open doors; the sight of other years in the long line of waiting loads is not. and it is unusual to see a load of wheat. The farmers are. however, optimistic and are busy preparing for next year. A large amount of moisture is badly needed.
