Tlie Germans have not slackened their efforts to take French poEltioiis tha; are seemingly impossible to take, and the consequent loss of men has been frightful. Yesterday the fighting was resumed east and west of the river Meuse, with an effort by the Germans to re-take some ground recently lost to the French. The Canadians have won still further praise for tlie manner in which they have stood their ground against terrific assaults of the Germans at St. Eloi, where fierce crater fighting has been going on. The attack appears to have centred on the Canadian lines which are flanked by two strong British units. The Russians on their northern front are slackening oft on the offensive, stating that they have accomplished their object of detracting the attention of the Germans while the liattle of Verdun was on. Hogs hit J10.55 in Calgary last Pat-urdiiy, the highest price ever paid in llie province in recent times. Tho favmor who raises hogs systematically staying vrith It in low prices or high, will como out on top in the long run. Premier Sifton wasn't very sympathetic when asked by the local Hoard of Trade to change the date of Arbor Day In this section of the province. But tree-planting is In full swing here now and Arbor Day Is three weeks away. The board should not be content to let the matter drop as It stands. AMERICAN LEGION: WHAT IT MEANS TO US 'The American Legion in the great Canadian army will be a pledge of North America to the world's democracy." This statement by Wm. T. Gregory, one of the American-bom men behind the Legion In Ontario, is inspiring. American-born residents of Canada are raising tour battalions-a brigade -to go with the Canadian army to fight the Huns. Nearly 5000 men will go in a body with the Legion-about eight per cent, of the toUl of Wellington's victorious army at Waterloo. Besides these there are thousands more young Americans who have joined Canadian units from one end of Canada to the other. It is a safe estimate that there are not less than 10,000 American-bom men bearing Canadian arms today. Sometimes we grow impatient with the foreign policy of the great neighbor to the south, but when we remember the number of Americans in our ranks, fighting our battles, our impatience turns to wonder and we thrill because we can boast a neighbor so practically sympathetic in this time of stress. CANADIAN MINING INDUSTRY AND THE WAR One outstanding lesson has been learned from the war In Canada and that is that the mining industry of the country is possible of much great-�5r development than the majority ever believed possible. The war has taught us that Canada's mineral wealth la enormous; it has taught m to do things in the mineral trades that "we hadn't before dreamed of; It has put the Industry on a new basis that will have a far-reaching effect on the Dominion after the war Is over. �\\Tien war was declared all our nickel was being refined In the United States. Though Canada owns three-iiuarters of tho mineral ore In the ^vorld not an ounce of it was being refined in this country. We seemed to think such an operation here im-poBSible. Then came the suspicion that the refined nickel was finding its �way from the United States to Germany and we commenced to refine In Canada. One large refinery was built and operated siicceBsfully, and now another Is under construction. Canada never liad a zinc smelter either until after the war was under way. Thousands of tons of zinc matter were wasted. What little we did Bend from copper refineries to tho United States brought little money to this country. Now there is a small Bine refinery at Trail, B. C, where cjopper ores are smelted. Other zinc smelters are being projected, notably at Frank and Jledlcine Hat, where ore from the B. C. mines will be jraelted. Now comes the Dominion government with a plan to aid zinc smeltors in tho Dominion up to the pxtent of $400,000 according to the lonnaga of output. This Is an ex-eellent plan and will be well received by all Canadians, The Empire needs Jhe prod.u(it8 liiid Canada can supiily "In talking with prominent members of the govemment, whose personal views are well known to me, it is difllcult to get away from the Impression that these men are sincere and that the recent submarine events are very annoying, and neither of their making or desire. One person expressed the opinion to me that they were "attendant symptoma of the former regime" which would pass away. It was again emphatically reiterated to me that the submarine commanders had th4 strictest instruo-tions not to sink passenger ships without warning, but the fate of the relations between Germany and America rests almost wholly upon the judgment, tho high-keyed mind and tense nerves of the submarine commanders, and the government la to some extent at the mercy ot these.- Karl Ton Wiegand, New York World correspondent in Berlin.
