Apr. 3.-An indication that heavy French reinforcements arc being brought up rapidly to the point on the Western front where the Germans appear to have concentrated their strongest, efforts to break through, is carried in information received at the British war mission today. The French forces, it was said, have extended tfoelr line to Thennos, near the Lucer Uiver. This enables the British to shorten their own line and to concentrate their forces. ' Hun Losses Heavy London, Apr. ;>.-"There is no question but that the German losses in the past fortnight have been vefy considerably heavier than ours," Major General F. B. Maurice, chief director of military operations at the war office, said today. General �Maurice indicated his belief that further gigantic battles were in prospect on the western front. "For the moment," he said, "after a series of battles, the front both north and south of the Somme has reached a condition of stability. But we are only at the beginning of April which is earlier than the beginning of the offensive last year, and a whole year's campaigning season is still before us. *It would be futile to think the German operations are at an end.'' Not Supreme Yet The Germans, General Maurice stated, were making a great effort in the air at a time when the allies were somewhat crippled by the loss of many airdromes and much equipment. "The German principle," he went an, "is to concentrate everything on whatever they undertake. This principle is being applied to the western front. That is why they stopped bombing London. While the allies still retain superiority in the airland a preponderance in men and machines, wo are far' from having anything like command of the air. Tho enemy is able to take as many photographs as he requires and to conduct the necessary reconnaissance and scouting by airmen." To drive a tank, handle the guns, and sweep over the enemy trenches, takes strong nerves, good rich blood, a good stomach, liver and kidneys. When tho time comes, the man with red blood in liis veins "is up and at it." Pie has iron nerves for hardships-an interest in his work grips him. That's the way you feel when you have taken a blood and nerve tonic, made up of Blood root, Golden Seal root, Stone root,Cherry bark, and rolled into a sugar-coated tablet and sold in fifty-cent vials by almost all druggists for past fifty years as Dr. tierce's Golden Medical Discovery; This tonic, in liquid or tablet form, is just what you need thisYpring to give you vim, vigor and Vitality.

April 3.-Pointing out that the provincial government was spending $50,000 annually in connection with the operation of the coal mines of Alberta, and that the sum of $25,000 was being voted with view to assisting in the development of a wider market. Premier Stewart informed, Wednesday morning, a deputation of,the mine owners who appeared to protest against the proposed, ten cents per ton tax on coal shipped off the mine property that they would have to contribute their share towards the revenue of the province the same us other sections of the community were being and would be called to do. The premier made a frank statement of the whole situation in regard to the coal industry, and asserted again that if transportation could be so arranged that the coal could be shipped out at other periods than at sot time of the grain rush, fifty per cent, of the difficulties i would be relieved. He admitted that the industry was not making the money it would if capital were invested in other ways but he claimed that effective organization,among the mine owners- themselves combined with improved transportation would secure the eastern market as far an Winnipeg which was the natural fielo tor the coal of Alberta. The deputation which numbered about three dozen operators represent ed the Western Coal operators association; the Northern Alberta Coal Operators Association, the Drumheller Association, and independent mines. S. B. Woods, P. L. Naismith, A. J. Lovatt, Montreal, (North American Collieries), and S. L. McMullen. Drumheller, spoke in support of the protest, and asserted that the industry could not" bear the burden. A fraction of an Increase in cost they declared would be n determining factor in shifting the ! field of supply farther west from the around the industry was trying to secure in Manitoba. Govt. Should Control. I Premier Stewart telling the delegation frankly that he believed the in-! dustry should contribute something to j the government tof the province said ! that they felt strongly that the government should have control of the utility, and that the matter had been taken up with the Dominion government. He was hopeful they would get control of the natural resources, and alluded to his visit to Ottawa, and the conference that would be held in regard to the matter at mid-summer. Alluding to a report that, had been given out after the conference in Ottawa he declared that no matter what the coal mine owners might have asked he made no suggestion that American' coal should be shut out of the Canadian market. He believed they could meet that competition if placed on a fair footing, and ho' said he* wanted to tell the mine owners that the business had not been organized to meet the competition.

Apr. 3.-At today's session of the hoard of grain supervisors, George Fisher, representing the Winnipeg grain exchange, recommended that, the guaranteed minimum price for the 1919 wheat crop be $2 a bushel. The suggestion was accepted without, comment by the board. Mr. Fisher was supported by other grain men In his suggestion that a diversion charge be made legal for grain diverted by the grain supervisors- The suggestion was opposed ny the Uana. dian council of agriculture. Dr. Magill chairman of the grain supervisors, opposed the suggestion that the board of supervisors ask for power to control flour prices. Dr. Ma-gill thought this would infringe on the powers of the food control board. Much discussion followed on this suggestion. Hon. George Langley, Saskatchewan, and A. K. Godfrey, chairman of private elevators section of tho Winnipeg grain exchange support-' ed this move.

BIBLE STUDENTS ARRESTED Winnipeg, April 3.-A number of raids have been made by military authorities on the domestic premises of International Bible Students in Winnipeg and as a result have made a number of arrests. What'the Press Agents Say AT STARLAND -An exceptionally strong bill is being advertised by Starland for tonight and tomorrow. The feature will be "Without a Soul," featuring the Universal favorite, Clara Kimball Young. It is a society drama in iflve parts, and contains a story of gripping interest and appeal. In addition to this Eplendid feature, an exceptionally good Strand comedy, a Mutt and Jeff cartoon comedy, and a Canadian Topical Review will be shown. This is the first of these Canadian gazettes to be shown here; and as these are something new much interest is attached to the showing. AT THE ORPHEUM The powerful part of "a man of iron determination", is acted by the $100,000 star, William Farnnm. in the latest AVilliam Fox release, "Battle of Hearts," at the Orpheum tonight and tomorrow. Martin Cane (Mr. Farnum), owner of a fishing fleet and a man of iron, even in seeking love, admires Maida Rhodes' (Miss Furry), daughter of a fisherman. His advances,, however, are repulsed by Maida, who has centered her love on Joe Sprague, a worthless, shiftless youth of the village. And Joe returns her affections with what he believes to be love. Cane, driven to desperation by the contempt of tho girl, goes to see in the face of a heavy storm anil despite the pleas of his men. His fishing fleet, is obliged to follow, the men are caught in a nor'easter, the ships are wrecked, one sailor is drowned and Martin Cane himself cast upon the beach close to death. Smugglers find the unconscious sailor. AT THE EMPRESS Much has been said about, the value of the sensational photoplay, "The Honor System," at. the Empress for the last time tonight, and in tho general human sympathy aroused from this angle one might lose sight of the other great and distinguishing qualities of this master drama which IX. A. Walsh directed and which William Fox is presenting. Eliminating the great moral story, the powerful record of human love and sympathy, and judging it from the viewpoint, of a spectacle, one is forced to the conclusion that it is one of the finest pieces at realism the motion picture stage has yet seen. The most moving scene is when the cowpunchers and rangers of one town dash madly on their mustangs and cayuses to the rcjscue of their pals in another border town. It has been raided by Mexican bandits, and Mr. Walsh's scene makes VJIlia's Columbus raid look like a game of croquet. The word has been brought to the boys of Lariat by Joe Stanton, the hero. In a whirlwind of passion they ride across the desert ,the American flag at the head, and save the town.

Their makers are afraid to prove their claims by. telling what their medicines contain. The only way to be honest with the people is to let them know what they are paying for. Here la the Vinol formula. When the doctor knows what a medicine contains, it ceasea to be a "patent" medicine. Every mother realizes, after giving her children "California Syrup of Figs," that this-Is their ideal laxative, because they love Its pleasant taste and it thoroughly cleanses the tendor little stomach, liver and bowels without griping. When cross, irritable, feverish or breath is bad, stomach sour, look at the tongue, Motiier! If coated, give c teaspoonful of this harmless "fruit, laxative," and in a few hours all the foul, constipated waste, sour bile and undigested food passes out of the bowels, and you have a well, playful child again. When its little system is full of cold, throat sore, has stomach ache, diarrhoea, indigestion, colic-remember, a good "inside cleansing" should always bo the first treatment given. Millions of mothers keep "California Syrup of Figs" handy; they know a teaspoonful today saves a sick child tomorrow. Ask your druggist for a bottle of "California Syrup of Figs," which has directions for babies, children of all ages an dgrown-ups printed on the bottle. Beware of counterfeits sold here, so don't bo fooled. Get the genuine, made by "California , Fig Syrup Company."-Advertisement, which is presented as the attraction at the Majestic Theatre on Thursday, Friday and Saturday of this week, Goldwyn Pictures has brought back to American audiences the international favorite and famed beauty.

In emotional possibilities it surpasses anything she has hitherto attempted. "Fighting Odds" tells si story of big business ventures in the automobile industry. Miss Elliott is seen as the wife of a millionaire manufacturer, a beautiful and loyal woman who, by her wit and her loveliness, brings his powerful enemies to account. mm TONIGHT AND TOMORROW WORLD PICTURES PRE8ENT Clara Kimball Young 'Without a Soul' Also r "BLUFFING FATHER" ' Strand Comedy, and "MUTT AND JEFF" CARTOON "CANADIAN TOPICAL REVIEW" Admission 20c and 10c PMPRESCl I m TONIGHT i.
