Very Moving At one point In his address, Mr. McCaul, when referring to the fortitude of tlio two priests, who had given up tlioir lives 2,200 miles north of Edmonton, was completely overcomo by emotion. Tears furrowed their way down his faeo and ho was obliged to atop for several minutes, wipe his eyes and gain control of himself, boforo ho could proceed. Asks For New Jury J. R. Wail bridge, counsel for the defense, asked that a now Jury be empaneled immediately at tho conclusion of Mr. MeCaul'a address. The entire speech, he claimed, had been of nuch a n.iturc that tho minds of the jurymen wore inflamed and a fair trial to tho two accused could not bo given ns a result. This request was rofusod by Chief Tur.flco Harvey, who stated, that although Mr. McCaul had taken an unusual step in giving stleh a lengthy resume of tho case, there was nothing in tho remarks which could harm the case of the Eskimos. My Canadian Overseas Correspondent Canadian Army Headquarters In Franco, Aug lfi.-In the battle of Lens, which began at daybreak this morning, the Canadians have once more made a splendid and successful attack upon historic ground. The early reports Indlcato that tho Germans and support lines along a front of over 1,000 yards, extending from the environs of Lens to the chalk, pits, l,r>00 yards south of llullucb, havo boon carried by storm. Tho assaulting wives included men from all part of the Dominion. The war-worn veterans among them who answered the first, call in 1!H1 were mingled wllli the recent drafts from the baso, and whoso first action it was. All alike went forward with irresistible order over tho most difficult ground, driving the enemy back boforo them. Among the objectives was hill 70,' cast of Loos, where a fiercely contested battle was fought in September, 1'Ufi, and the Cite at. Laurent, the northern suburb of Lens. Nows has coroo jj� from tho troops who followed up, and passed through tho waves of attack 1 hat. they have reached a point oast of hill 70, almost a mile from their Jumping off trench. Tho enemy put up a strong resistance, and will probably cannier attack in force, so soon as his reserves can be brought up, but what Canadian valour has won Canadian tenacity can bo trusted to hold, lull 70 is regarded by artillery experts as the key to Lens, and the enemy will not surrender it except under pressure. No particulars as to our losses or tho number of prisoners taken are ynt available, but. ihe artillery preparation was most thorough, anil It is hoped that in the masses of churned up and shell piped chalk on hill 70, and the half square mile of wrecked miners' houses in Cite St. Laurent, few shelters remained for the enemy machine guns, his most effective means of defense.
