OF THE Fighting back along the old Somme front which has been the scene of so many backward and forward move ments in the past three the British and Erench forces are toda back much of the territory which they gave up In the great re treatof The battle which wa opened by the allies On Thursday ha now extended from Arras to Mont D and the capture of the latte placeoccurred this The ad vance has taken the French and Can adian troops to and almost within striking distance of The British are advancing along the line towards Bapaume and the old line which furnished so many bitter struggles In 1916 and The total of prisoners captured now een that we are paying dearly for goods we are now The following llhimtafttlre article ecently written by tho Sterling Bank 3t Canada sets forth the reasons Tor he adverse exchange rate existing to day A rate of exchange of over 2 per cent on remittance of funds to United States has developed of recent Tho American holder of Canadian funds has been chagrined to find that they are subject to a very considerable while the Canadian importer has resented the 2 per premium on his purchases in he United States which he must pay In addition to the cost price and In many cases there has been ft ten dency to blame banks andbanking for the because customers have not taken the trouble to look beyond the banks to the international trade developments which are at the root of the high exchange In order to arrive at a clear under standing of these it is necessary to bear in mind the funda mental truth that exchange is some thing which must be bought before it can be sold and that United States funds are just as much an article of commerce as United States The Canadian banks do not create these funds they buy Accord Ing as the supply is plentiful or scarce they pay a low or a high When they come to dispose of this exchange thev do so at the quotation of that particular which may be slightly lower or slightly higher than the price at which they In other words the banks stand to lose as well as to gain as the price But in any the major of the pre mium which the consumer not to the but merely through the to the original holder of the The law of supply and which governs the price ot all commo applies equally to When the demand in Canada for Uni ted States funds is greater than tho the premium which must be paid for these increases as naturally as the price of a bag of po during a potato The bank which requires such funds has tobuy them where It can get them and it has to pay nn increased price as the scarcity of that particular line warrant In to is and the greatest aavance in Why is ex the two days of fighting is 13 j cnange it is necessary to ascer tain why United States funds are SUCCESS OF CHAUTAUQUA ALREADY u is evident that Lethbridge PICKED PASSING will once again leud splendid patronage to the Last years the United present And the answer is United States funds are scarce at a because Can adians have to remit to the United States more than they from when the Chautauqua was to were very suc it was not known whether the due in whole or in part to thenovelty ot the scheme But this year will tell whether the Chautauciue is to become a permanent feature In the life of western The novelty has worn off and the attendance will be decided by the excellence ot the programs arid the manner in which they grip the It is therefore pleasing teth bfidges remembrance of last years programs is such as to cause a sell out of the seats before the Chautau qua That indicates that the Chautauqua is here to It is a splendid form of education and en and the fact that the layger attend In large crowds means that the Chautautjua is made possible In the smaller CANADIANS AGAIN IN THICK Of Afterjjnany months of Comparative the Canadian forces In France aro again in the thick of the Not since Passchendaele have they v taken part in really big movement on the western front that they are play ing a large part In the surprise ad vance Is developing so splen didly In Iront of Reports the front some weeks ago told theCanadians were heinl tiejd Ss All during the spring when the Germans were making their desperate efforts to smash the British and the Canadians were held out of It was generally understood that they were to be held until the initiative passed Into the hands of the Allies whan they would be thrown In at a particularly opportune for the Germans themselves have more than once admitted that the as troops are equal to the best qn the west The opportune time has and It will thrill Canadians at home to Enow that the boys at the front have been able to do what tjiey have been held specially In readl nless to The Canadians are in the thick of It now and they will be in ft wheu the last is EXCHANGE MOUNTS AGAINST WHY Some wedks ago whenexchange be tween Canada and the United State wad two per against the Do t minion government took steps to cu down importations from that country This week exchange climbed to per against indicating tha wa have not yet curtailed sufficiently our purchases from that Con the fact that we are already paying ft special war tax on imports from the States and also tha are now paying more than 2 pe to transtei money to balance tin trade agaipst it can b introduced This excess of remittances south introaucea excesg goofls coming northward for which they are the payment in other it is due to the amount by which Can adas Imports from the republic ex ceed her exports to the Tho unfavorable balance of trade is the greatest factor in the scarcity of Uni ted States funds and the consequent high rate of The sequence of events might be outlined as follows in her trade with her buys more than she sells hence owes more than is owed It naturally follows that American dollars whether in drafts or or any other form of ex change are scarce in Canada and sell ata on the other there is a surplus of Canadian funds in Mew and the Canadian shrinks in value there as a con It may be objected that this un favorable trade balance is a matter of long while an exchange rate of 2 per is something unusual in the history of the two Though these statements are both true is also a fact that the unfavorable rade balance has never been so great s during the past during which Percy a vrblt known Brigh ton 25 yenrs was drowned near Presqu Isle Two
