A. Champagne,. North Battleford, oted with the government, hut otherwise the division was on party lines. The chief feature of the debate was a criticism of the government proposal by It. L>.

The Cardston people are leaving no stone unturned to make their fair a success both in point of attractions and financially.

By Canadian Overseas Correspondent Canadian Army Headquarters in France, Aug. 17.-The total number of prisoners captured by the Canadians in the action around Lens is now over 900. Reviewed Offensive London. Aug. 17, (via Router's Ottawa Agency).-Renter's correspondent at British Army Headquarters telegraphs under Thursday's note: "Con' tinuous and bitter fighting progressed throughout the day on tho whole, front.  "Renewed joint Anglo-French offensive appears to have been successful, but the situation on the right flank is a little obscure. Troops there are moving toward Polygonde-Zonnebekc. but tho Germans are delivering sonic of thoir heaviest counter-attacks there, "Further north wo havo unquestionably done very well. Langemarck ii reported in our hands and there ia fighting well beyond it." The mention of Langemarck recalls tho first battle of Ypres when the third brigade met the 27th German division advancing with arms linked in consciousness ol thoir overwhelming superiority. Oui machine gun fire so cut them up that oven our own soldiers were nauseated by the slaughter. Both sides are' fighting desperately in the neighborhood of Gloncorse wood, a strong tactical point. VInlantry loudly praise the almost Bonticnt precision of the artillery barrage. One of tho worst experiences befalling tho German counter-attacks was wjien the guns put down the curtain :> at :-flre . behind the assaulting waves and then headed them off with a creeping whirlwind barrage. "Machine guns represent the chief  difficulty with which we have had to contend. Zonnebeke redoubt was the scene of fierce fighting today. Picked Sturmtruppen chiefly delivered i\z counter-attacks. French continue" tc progress well but their movement Is mainly designed to conform with bui advance." Meaning of Big Battle London, Aug. 17.-The Times correspondent writes "Reference has been made in this column to the advantages for submarine attack the Germans possess in fortified ports on tho Belgian coast. The first sea lord has pointed out in regard to these ports that while Ostend is open to attack from the sea it is much more difficult to do permanent damage to Koebruggo, which is only an outlet for the inland harbor ot Bruges. "It may fittingly be mentioned therefore that officially in Germany the fighting now taking place on the western front Is described as the battlo for tho U-boat bases in Flanders. The success of the military arm should have a reflection upon the submarine campaign." Magnificent But Suicidal London, Aug. 17.-Describing the German counter attacks on the Canadians, Beach Thomas, ot the Daily Mail, writes that the endeavor at Lens was magnificent. The 4th Prussian Guard, forming part of an army corps of guards marching In columns of four, swung out from their snug, lino behind the town, and advanced to drive homo a counter thrust against the victorious Canadians. They found that the north of theii Hue of march was so exposed thai they dared not top the crest on thai sido, and on tho south side �  the swampy ground hampered them ao that they could not deploy. Thoy marched on perforce, still in fours, and camo into fire, first indirectly then directly from a number of out converging machine field guns. In all they marched nearly three miles under direct fire. It was magnificent but suicidal. The whole body of several thousand men was shot down. They died and did not kill. In all ten counter attacks have been attempted already ngalnst the Canadians.
