British l-leadquarters in France, Aug./ 9.-(Reuters.)-Tho tanks did very well today. Under cover of night a number of them were brought aoroas the Luce brook, whoro they rendered invaluable assistance in what might have proved an awkward situation owing to the nature of the ground. They drove the enemy from many trench positions and machine gun nests. The German machine gun fire was less heavy than expected, possibly owing to the mist, but the tanks seam to have dealt with the machine gun posts with ruthless thoralighness. French Statement Paris, Aug. 9.-Tho French war ruin- latry at 12.30 o'clock today Issued tho following statement: "The brilliant oporation, which we, in. concert with Brltlsii troops exocul- Delivered to any part of the city.

Karly this morning Iho combined! Franco-British forces began following i up the victory of yesterday from the { po. German press, according to an official dispatch today from Switzerland. Tlio Muenchtor Post, according to 1 the dispatch, protests against a recent ; sipoech delivered at Hamburg by Trinco Honry of Prussia giving the German people a picture ot the situation which in no way corresponds to ! the reality. "aonnana aro not going to let them-solves 'bo exploited like children. It is ridiculous to think that people are saying that wo shall support a titth year of war like tUo preceding ones, It would bo doing wrong to th^ German people. We were told for a long time that America's entry into tho war was a mure bluff and wo see today that only parts of tho press and tho greater part ot tho orators aro continuing to deceive the German public. Thay would do better to say openly thai Germany finds herself today in an oitreiuely ierlous situation." American Army on the Vesle, Aug. 9.-Information that the Germtin sold-'iers had been ordered to destroy all property po:,sibl6, particularly cha-leaus and houses of good appearance, during the retreat from the Marne is In possession ot the French and Americans.

The deserter said that, sappers had been ordered by General li"'inok Von Kinokenstein to destroy everything within their power. Similar orders also were Issued by lieutenants tu bombers. I'rI.'ioncris say that the order tor the retreat from the Marnc was joyouslv received by iiiosi, of the Oerman trooiw, especially the Saxons, who expresseil the Hope that tiiis la�t Gorman failure to reach Paris .would hasten the coming of peace.

SPEAKERS ARE COMING TO CITY Complaints liave been heard many times in recent years that Lethbridge so often misses tho outstanding speakers who cross tho continent, it being Impossible to have them change their route and come to Lethbridge to speak. However, It is possible that two well-known men will shortly speak in Lethbridge. On 'i'uesday next :Mr. ]-:dwin P. Tretz will deliver an address at the Chautauqua. As bo was national secretary of flie Charnber of Commerce lu the United States It Is thought that many of the business men ot tho city would like to have liini address ihom at a luncheon when he could deal with u special tojiic such as board of trade activity, city building or something along his special line. President Marnoch ot the Board of Trade heard M,r. Trefz in Calgary when ho addressed tho Board ot Trade there, and this morning he suggested to the Itotary Club that ihoy might arrange to have Ml'. 'J'refz address a gathering ot board' of trade members and llotarians here on T'ues-day' afternoon. The Rotary Club is now endeavoring to get In touch with Mr. Tretz to learn whether he Is willing. Later in the mouth Mr. B. K. Sand-well, editor ot the Financial Times of Montreal, will bo returning from tho coast and the Rotary Club Is endeavoring to secure him to address Ilo-tarlans and other business men of the city at a luncheon. she found fame and liappinoss in spito of unsurinountahle obstacles Is vividly porlrayed In "A Broadway Scandal,"' to be shown at the Orphouiu tonight.

AT THE EMPRESS .Metro Pictures Corporation is congratulating Itself on the excellence ot its special production, "Blue .leans." a screen version of .foseph Arthur's famous old melodrama, starring Viola Dana. Tho star herself deserves unlimited credit in connection with the production, and another factor of supreme Importance has been the dl rection. .lohn II. Collins, in this seven-act de luxe production, has justified those who have contended that he is one ot tho foremost motion picture dl rectors ot America today. Accordingly Metro's "Blue .Teans' lK)BscsseB all the original charm and thrill, combined with a story, every detail of which can be believed. Tho "Blue .Teans" of today is'a master piece ot today.

There you will find the little French cVfo whore NonottiO and Armande Bisson', her father, rang mellow chimes on Uio cash register to the symphonic eating of Spaghetti by the true Bohemians of Oolliam, In this little cafe occur many ot the delightfully naive scenes in "A Broadway scandal," a Bluebird photo-drama in which lovoly Carmel Myers wins more dramatic laurels as Non-etto, Nenette is betrothed to a well-fed suitor selected by her doting parents. How Nenette escaped a marriage in which her heart-had no part and how AT STARLANT) Tho story ot "Wolve.-i ot the Rail," an Artcraft picture starring William S. Harl, the Tlios. II. I nee star, which will be tlie attraction at tho Siarland theatre tonighi, lias the broad western (Oifntry for Its setting. Hart Is seen as "Buck"' .Andrade, .1 daring highwayman, who.^e gang is feared and dreaded by tile officials of a western railroad. "Buck's" conversion is effected at the bedside of bis dying mother, and he gives to hi.s task of reformation all the energy, vitality and thoroughness that characterize his carei^r a^ a iio!d-up and all-around bad man. "Buck" becomes a staunch champion ot law and order, a loyal protector of the railroad company's property, and a safe guardian of government money, though he has to fight his former gang to do so. Ot course there's a girl in the case-Fallh Law-son, tho operator in the railroad tower al Smoky Gap, -and the awakening ot Andradc's new character and his steadfastness of purpose are partly the result of hi.s love for her. Tliere is no let-up in the interest and action of "Wolves of the Bail," and the millions of admirers of "Big Bill' Hart will find much in this new offering to eutluise ovpx. First 01 all there's the now, character, in' which Hart takes the .side ot law and order, and his streiiiiotis but none the less etfeclive methods of ridding the Box Canyon country of the dangerous gang of outlaws formerly commanded by liluiself. During the course of tlie five reel.h "Big Bill" performs enough deeds of daring to please the most exacting. Most of the scenes in "Wolves ot the Rail" were photographed hi the mountains of California, where a complete railroad station. swltcJli tower and division superlntendenfs officw were erected. Hart is given his usual excellent sujiport, and Thos. H. Ince has brought his finest craftsmanship lo the fore In making this new picture a ..standard for future Hart productions.
