Tho danger 10 Amiens, the vital point of connection between tiie allied armies, grows less each* day, and the allies grow more confident as time goes on and the Germans fail in their further attempt:-, that this city and its important railway connections will be successfully defended against the German offensive. Strong attacks were. repulsed by both the  French and British last night, at one or two points. A village was' recaptured by the British sbuih-eaat of Arras. On most or the fronts tho night was comparatively quiet. ... 60,3-16.242 The question of exchange rates now and after the war will be one of the most important problems affecting -world trade, and it is well for Canadians to study 1L WESTER^ PRODUCERS QUITE SATISFIED. * Says the London Advertiser, one of tho few daily newspapers which supported the Laurier-Liberals during the general election campaign: The Lethbridge Herald asks: "Has union government done you any harm, .Mr. Producer?" Thi3 is probably as far as it cares to 'delve into .the question. It might have continued. Had union government done you any good, Mr. Producer or Mr. Consumer? But the answer wanted to the first question would have been forthcoming, also tor the second, and that would have been embarrassing. The question asked by the Herald is an. indictment. In- effect, it charges the Dominion Government with failing to do anything which is of benefit, and announces that the most that can be claimed for it is that it has done nothing which has harmed the producer. The. question which, if answered � truthfully, might serve to throw some light on the situation is: Has the Union Government done anything good which a Liberal' government would not have done fully as promptly, and has it not left undone much that a Liberal government would have done for-the present and future welfare of Canada? For the Advertiser's benefit the Herald will say that the question was prompted by the opposition campaign in this constituency, during which the farmers were told that the Union Government was a government of the Big Interests, and that the producers of the westem�.prairies would soon find it out if the Unionists were returned to power. Happily, however, the- campaign cry of our opposition friends has not come true. The producers have not only not been done ""any harm but rather they find that Union Government is benefitting them. They now have free sheep and cattle and' a reduction on tractor duties, and better than all they have a government that is not afraid to act in the best interest of the country regardless of any interests. The fcondon Advertiser has greatly strain-.ed its imagination to turn the Herald's question against Union Government. It will have to find something more convincing if it hopes to swing the western producer over to the opposition. the importance of the daily [newspaper. People in Canada have come to take their daily newspaper as a matter of course, just (as they consider their railway, telephone, telegraph, mail' service and other things which enter into their daily life as a matter of course. It is therefore pleasing to the daily newspapers vHen a man in the position of Commissioner Pringle, of the commission of enquiry into newsprint costs, takes occasion to say: The publication of newspapers is a matter of public concern. To a great extent the press of the country is public property, and if tomorrow morning the people of Canada found their daily paper would be wiped out there would be, to use a common expression, a howl throughout the Dominion . from the Atlantic to the Pacific. Imagine what state of mind the people of Lethbridge and' district would have been in during the pa3t fortnight; during which the German j ^^^^ ^-^mutl^ Asylum Charge* On the vote for the hospital for the Insane at Ponokn. Andrew Oilmour directed attention to the case of n man's estate being exhausted through maintenance charges in the Institution. Hon. A. J. McLean replied that he never know of any such hardship and when conditions were brought to the notice of the department the money was refunded. If the particulars of the case referred to were placed before him he would give it his consideration. On the vote of ?2OO,0OO for a tubercular institution Hon. C. R. Mitchell explained that the Dominion government would not select the site for the hospital for soldier patients until the provincial governments were satisfied, but no matter how large the institution grew, he said, the province would not be asked to contribute more than the $200,000. Alex. Hoss nsked what was going to be clone for the care of civilian patients. If the institution were only to be used for the soldiers it would be four or five years before (t was available for civilians. Mr. Mitchell said this wonld be a matter of arrangement with the Dominion authorities. Otherwise he did not see how they could make an appropriation for a temporary institution as the building that would be used for the soldiers would eventually revert to the p-ovince. Dr. Stanley expressed himself in favor of small tubercular hospitals throughout the length and breadth of the province, and he did not think the government should commit itself to the idea of a large central institution. Mr. Hoadley asked -had the provincial government come to any conclusion as to the site of the institution. Hon. G. P. Smith replied that he had come to no conclusion as to where the institution shon''' >>� located. He himself had thought seriously along the lines suggested by the member for spring drive was being pressed with ! wouileniand. But that fact will have to be established before any understanding can be arrived at. If the department could not induce a school board to opqn a school It appointed an official trustee. On Indian Reserve Mrs. McKinney called the attention of the minister of education to there being absolutely no provision made for the education of children^ of families employed on the Indian'reserve south of Macleod. Had any representations, the member for Claresholm asked, been made to the Dominion government on the subject, Mr. Boyle said an appeal had been made to the Federal Minister for the interior on the matter, and the provin-j cial department had offered to assist ' literally in having education provided for these children. The minister added that the question was still under consideration, and he had hopes of something being done. He would take up- the matter when he was in Ottawa this year.  Mr, Hoadley remarked that sometimes they were a little too delicate in approaching the Dominion and the other ministers declared he would support the education In taking any steps necessary to make the minister of the intcrfor realize his obligation in regard to these people. Mrs. McKinney urged that the pressure on the Dominion Government would be continued.' 'Mr. Boyle said it would.
