Opposite National Service Board Is Directing Men Help Harvest Montreal, Aug. 4.-"Traffic must be speeded up and coal must be got into the country," says Sir Henry Drayton, chairman of the board of railway commissioners, in a Judgment Just received at the Transportation bureau of the board of trade, Montreal, on .the question of demurrage. With this object a new set of demurrage rates has been drawn up by the railway commissioners a's follows: First and second day, free; third day, $1; fourth day, |2; fifth day, $3; sixth day, $4; seventh day and all days thereafter, |5 a day.

KEITH, B.D., M.A., ;>�____Lady Principal President (By the Canadian Overseas Correspondent). Canadian Headquarters in Prance, Friday, Aug. 3, via London. - Four days of a steady downpour of rain have made ditches of the trenches all along the western front, and on the part of the lino whero aro the Canadians the wet weather has brought about a cessation of infantry movement on a large scale. There havo been several small encounters between tho patrols out in "No Man's Land," but for the most part the men in the trenches are fully employed in preventing flooding of their positions. At some low-lying posts where drainage cannot be secured the enemy has been forced out into tho open, and brought under me fire of our .guns, with serious results to them. Jlain has not been permitted to sll-enco tho guns. Many thousands of projectiles aro expended daily. The cellars in Lens, in which tho enemy now shelters his reserves, aro subjected to a sustained bombardment with the "heavies." The frequont explosions in the city indicate that the German stores of ammunition are also kept in these cellars, and that tho loss of life among their garrison from the interminable pounding of our gun* must be very great. The conditions of Lens are very much what they were on the Belgian front before the opening of the of> tensive. � It is now known that in. Flanders three divisions ot the enemy were so badly cut up by the British artillery fire that they were withdrawn on the eve of the assault, and fresh troops put into line. Five other division* havo now been relieved on the .front over which the offensive extends, much ot their toll of casualties being due to the gunfire. j; Great Artillery Concentration No such concentration ot artillery has been made^ in any previous offensive. The enemy alike in the north and on the Canadian front is again, using shells with prodigality. This, morning he put a heavy barrage on-tlie Avion sector about 2 o'clock, and shortly before daybreak let loose up-' on the Levin-Loos area. His lack of observation lessens effectiveness of this retaliation, however. MILITARY GOVERNOR KILLED : Petrograd, Aug. 3.-General Er> dolli, militnry governor ot Petrogradv says the Bourse Gazette, has beeii .killed. He was treacherously shot in the back. Cion.
