Premier Stow-t>rt replied that was the s�i)t the railway company required to Attend the bridge so as to provide for foot and vehicular traffic It had been calculated that If the government built a bridge to provide those facilities i itccordltiR to which estimate the offer of the railway company would save the pro'vlnt* about Jimuiun. The ferry service at present said the premier wc.h idirly satisfactory, but it had never really been satisfactory. If the railway company were to construct the bridge arrangements would have to be made before they proceeded to erect the steol. That was why they were asking the government to give a definite undertaking. There had been an understanding with the former premier that the railway company should -�io the work rather than it should 'bo undertaken by the government Itself,. j The premier stated there was well defined opinion in the district in support of the erection of the bridge. Mr. Hoadley and Mr. Ewlng urged that the railway should only be paid for what the additional work woukl cost more than the original coat ox the bridge. Premier Stewart although be would rot say the government was morally bound to pay the $176,000 intimated that die work would not be proceeded with by the railway company if they did not get this sum. What ha was concerned with, be said, was the fact that the province would save 1100,000. Mr. Weir said the fact was the bridge was needed In the public Interest, in th* interest of the settlers. All they could do was to take tholr medicine and see they were not placed at the mercy of any railway company In future. vance on Kharkov from Poltava. PATIENCE WITH BEING EXHAUSTED Washington..

All day long the rattle of machine guns could be heard from eur trenches directed against enemy places, while our antl aircraft gtfns were repeatedly In action.

We will enable Serbia to develop and would welcome clou or economic relations with her. Paris, Apr. 3. - The threat against "Amiens is not considered very serious here, although * the Germans are only eleven miles away. That point must be held at all costs because it is the link between Paris and the channel ports. If the Germans break through here it would separate the British and French armies and afford opportunity to defeat each in detail. This danger grows less as time pastes. Germany has staked her all cn the result of the battle, which one German newspaper ssid the other day would decide her future position In the world. Possibly this may be true, but never in the sense the Germans expected.

Austro Hungarian and German troops are fighting shoulder to shoulder at they fought in Russia, Serbia. Rumania and Italy. We are fighting together tor the defense of Austria-Hungary and Germany.
