I ,tme PROGRESS OF THE WAR. The British and French are both now'engaged in otlensives of consid-erahle magnitude on the western front. The British this morning opened a drive along a front of eight mlies south of Arras in which they took the enemy hy surprise, and captured Courcelles and other important towns. The French are contlnuiuB their forward movement In the Roye salient. The French x^ffensive i� rapidly menacing the German grip on Noyon. and the British offensive Ic confidently expected to enlarge to an attack along the entire front to the sea, an operation -which will be kept up with a series of attacks until the fall rains block' TQovements altogether. THE. MERRY-GO-ROUND THAT DOESN'T GO, One day some Tveekg ago the street car system "advertised" that the ! merry-go-round would nm that aftar-' noon. It did run and. a. large nnmherrof i children vislfed' Kt^h'derBoa Lako :to Iride pnlt. �"' ; '".'

Premier Stewart is making no mistake In his policy of visiting the various parts of the province to keep in touchy with the people, to learn their n^ede and to aet up a sympathetic understanding between the government and the people, His visit here should resuR in much good. Southern Alberjta Is a long way from.the seat of the ; gorerhment and in the past there have been many tlnies when the south had a Ieg;itimate protest against the policy of the eovemment because the oath eeemed'to he passed over to the hieneflt of the north. However, Premier Stewart has adopted a course wliich will wipe out the line between porth and south, and if he continues as he Btarted it Is very wnllkely that ' there need be any cry of sectionalism. Premier Borden and President Wilson, the Edtflhnton JouroM says, it might bo mentioned that the president of the United States is debarred by the constitution 'from ieavlng that country during hia term of office. But, there Is a still more Important difforenco between the cases of these two gentlemen which critics like the leader overlook entirely. � Tho United States and Britain .�ro two separate world powers, and, If President Wilson siiould visit Ijondon, his visit would bo analogous to those paid frequently to the British capital by the heads of thb French 'and Italinn governments. But Canadft_ is a British country, and so long as it is Its foreign policy must bo controlled from London. It wo sire to have anything tike an adequate voicQ in that control. It is necessary for our representatives to cross the soas and consult with the statosriien of Great Britain. It would bo quite as reasonable for tho Leader to carry on n campaign against the representative of Saskatchewan in the federal government tor spending the bulk of his time In Ottawa, as It is" for It to ohject to Sir Robert Borden's -presence in London. As jMr. Rowell pointed out in an address -which he gave In Ontario on Thursday, the prynier Is staying in Britain because it is the unanimous opinion of his colleagues that his presence there Is necessary for the proper protection of the most vital Interests of the Dominion. It he had consulted merely his own wishes, he would have returned to Canada long" ago, aficord-ing to Mr. Rowell. The representative of all the other parts of the empire are still in London consulting with the British cabinet. One of them. General Smuts, has never gone back to South Africa m the year that has elapsed since tho last imperial council. Doubtless there are some In South Africa who are saying that the general's place is there aud not In Britain. Certainly that dominion's domestic problems require quite as close attention as our own. His colleagues, however, are convinced that he la rendering the best service, not only to South Africa, but to the Allied cause as a -whole by staying on in London. � How is it possible to argue that Sir Robert Borden would be helping Canada by breaking away from this representative Imperial oouncil and leaving us without a voice there? Those who are suggesting that he should are taking a very -narrow and short-sighted view. From some of them we do not expect'anything better. Having opposed the premier arid the Union government at every stage, they can always be counted upon to Join in any cry whh:h they think -will result In political advantage to them. But better things are ejected from newspapers which were in line with popular sentiment last December, even it some of them did make a very sharp turn in order to get behind the bandwagon. -^PICKED UP PASSING^^^^l^EM' WHAT'S THE MATTER WITH BEEF PRICES7 From ^hat The Herald can learn thdae fai^ers who have finished beef toaelljigve a. legitimate protest when they kick aeainst the market now af-(ordMltor weatera beef. It is evident that the dea.lera are taking erery advantage of the scarcity of teed to haminer down the pricea and thli is hAiiig'iaoDe, -with the result that the -- .farmer witti the finished product li f,hranch has thoroughly aroused - the- TesidentB of  the various towns on that line. The Raymond people ar^8o.s'tlri;e(fjup that'they met recently a hundred strong, and organieed a good live board of trade with the following ^.ofticei^a President, L.

Thirty-three members of the Winnipeg police department, who were the last to be taken on tho force will be lot out within the next three months. Lieut. E. Arthur Finn, formerly manager of the Merchants' Bank, at West Edmonton, has been killed In action. Estimating the crop on a 27-acro field, one farmer In South Cxford slatotl that it would roach 80 bushels to (he acre, while Inst year It -^ms only liO bushels. ' Hon. Walter Scott, former premier of Saskatchown, stated -at Montreal In reply 'to questions that ho had no Intentions of re-entorlng politics for the present and that ho would not return to Regina before the spring of 1919. Scraps from copper bands around Canadian-made shells amounting to 10,000 tons have been rollned, and worth $.1,000,000. Scrap steel recovered is worth another ?5,000,000 a year. John Blow, a farmer In prosperous circumstances residing- at Heathdalo, twenty-five miles southwest of Youngs-town. Alia., was found dead in his bed in his shack, on the oveplng of August 13, by a neighbor, Conrad Leo. Mrs. Warren O'GilvIo, wife of the manager of tho Eastern Hat and Cap Company of Truro, N.S., and -her sister, Jlrs. Bonnell, -wife of Dr. Bonnell of St. John, were killed in an automobile accident bet-weCn Chance Harbor and Pictou Landing, nine miles from New Glasgow. Ely Kyler was found dead in tho pen of the abattoir of the East End stock yards of Montreal. The" body when found had been budi.v trampled and it is surmised that tho bull which vcas loose In the pen had attacked the man. Detectives found traces of blood on the head of tho animals James Cruikshank, since May, 1917. editor of the Regina Dally Post, has resigned his position dating 24. Before coming to Regina he was news editor of 'the Saskatoon Dally Star and prior to that was for tour years with the S katoon Phoenix, the last tjivo years managing editor. AH aliens In Canada of enemy nationality over the ago of 16 years are now required to register tinder the alien regulations. Previously the re gvilations required only allunR of enemy nationality of military age, .^d having no permanent place of residence or abode in Canada, to register. MInneapoIitans may get all' tlie wood they want by taking it "root, trunk and branch" from a 20-acre tract belonging to F. B. Forsyth, near the county poor farm at Hopkins. He said the tract is covered with oak, elm and tamarack. The only conditio^ stipulated is that stumps and branches be removed. � -1 ' The busiest man In England,_has been found nt Tockenham, where Rev. W. Hewlett Cooper, .rectpr of the parish, has asked . exemption from military duty tor George Davis, whom he says is \ his manservant, sexton, gardener, school cleaner and grave digger . Although Cooper said he couldn't get along without Davis, the exemption was not granted. Detroit will soon be known not only as the "Hub of Motordom;" but also of aiixraft production. The city is manufacturing 92 1-2 per 'cent, of all liberty engines and at least one-third of the battleplane supply; 19,000 Liberty engines will be completed by September 1, and within four months Detroit win be prodiicihg 50 complete battleplanes daily. , ' , Owing to the pacifist altitude of Lord Lansdowne,__the agitation to change the name of Lanadowne Avenue, a residential street, in Pavkdalc, Toronto, has reached si;ch a ^lage that the mayor announces he will move in thq board of control that the street in future be called Lloyd George avenue or road, in honor of the great British champion of liberty. Great activity was in evidence at the. government labor bureau at Moose Jaw where a large number of men were ticketed to harvest fields, a number of soldiers from the military camp at Regina being dispatched to farms. Between two and three hundred harvesters arrived from Eastorn Canada, and have been dispatched along the northern lino of the C.P.R. as the call from that district Is exceptionally heavy. Cutting in the harvest flolds has now begun In earnest and' it is expected that this week will see operations general all tlirough tho district.  Lieut. Leslie F. Gordon, formerly accountant of the Trusts and Guarantee Co., of Calgary, has died of wounds. Oscar B. Fleming, K.C., of Windsor, has the proud distlncllon of having five members of hia family serving in Canadtaiv. units. Local food administrators are being namod for tho mliflug camps and settlements on tho creeks lu tho sparsely settled sections of Alaska. A Calgary party made a record motor trip to Vancouver, covering the distance in 43 hours. They went by way of Maoleod !ity, and former resident of Brantford, passed away. A force of 50,000 women necessary to care for all sick ftnd wounded American soldiers, must ho raised by July 1 next, Surgeon-General Oorgas announced at Washington. Women with husbands fighting in France are permitted under new rules to become hand Is still ac lively engaged in' all kinds of farm work. Ho says he feels fine and is out "to win the war." Jas. D. McGregor, reporting on the harvest outlook and- help requirements in Manitoba says: "It Is estimated that 9,000 men will be required, of which number one-third will be pro cured in tho province through the re gular channels. These will be supplemented by the harvest clubs of seventy towns and cities with a present enrollment of 3,00(J, and by some 300 Boy Scouts. The local supply of avail able farm help is estimated to be equivalent to 4000 men, leaving 5000 stili required from outside the, pro vince." and these from the other parts of the HJm'pIre. KveryOno Is doing all po�-tlblo to wln^the war, and 1 have ?om� homo (satiafted tliat every aid wo can possibly render Is none too much." Good �havlor. peaking of rumors -of tho behavior at Canadian boys over there. Premier Stewart won applause when he declared that he -was more proud of tho Canadians than ever, and could say to the mothers, wlvea and sisters at the hoys oversoBs that "I never saw a boy doing anythlug ovor there that his mother or his sister need bo ashamed of, not a single one." He declared the boys had a good timo when they went to London but "it I wore a soldlor I would go to London when 1 got a chance and have a mighty good time too." "Over there they are training the older men and the young boys to take their pip COS at the front. One m-an out of every six In Scotland and -.ngland Is In the fighting lino or in training. That's tho answer as to whether Bhig-land and Scotland are doing their bit. Wo have reached nowhere near that mark." More Equality.^ Premier Stewart declared that in his dplnlon there should be more equality between tho status of Uie man who risks his life every day in tho fighting lines and those, in civil Ufo behind, a statement which drew applause from the returned soldiers present at tho meeting. He thought that in war every man belonged to the state, and that every man should givo to tho state as much of himself^ as tho Btatd", needs to carry on tho war. Tho premier then went on to pay a very fine complimont to tho women of England, the 'Waacs', those who are doing their duty in the munition plants, and those who arc even driving ambulances right on the field -of battle in France. Ho saw, he said, a party of girls driving ambulances right into tho barrage during a daylight raid staged when he was in France. And he believed that it the necessity arose those girls would shoulder a musket. They have their casualties as tho men have. "After seeing the women of the old country and what they aro doing to help win this war your estimation of the Englishwoman goes up a thousandfold." Visited Fleet Premier Stewart visited the grand fleet commanded by Sir David Beatty, PREMIER STEWART THRILLS' E ((JONTINUEJ) FROM PkONI Pji01> Qnnn .1..,. , x\n 1 . f auuiiuuo in lumi ai iiuymouu U'oui llie acres had been summertallowed" last season, and Mr. Mangin planted the full thousand to wheat, finishing seed-ii^g'by May 1st. Mr. Mangin now-has several binders cutting and all who have seen this splendid crop agree that it will average ifuily twenty-five bushels to the aero. And that ^ It "some" crop for such a dry season as this ,when so many thousands of acres in .various parts of the country are producing little more than the seed. This record crop is biit another dom-onslralion of the valub of systematic summer-fallowing and deep plowing. Mr. Mangin intimated t-o-the Herald that doubtless some credit for this record crop is due to the deep plowing done on this land some four or five years ago by the Knight Sugar Company when they plowed ; to a depth of about Iour,teen Indies-with a MiiljBofl pibw.

The spirit of the men waa fine and their only anxiety wai to get at the enemy. and spent two days aboard "Canada" commanded by Capt. Watson who for two years before tho war waa naval attache at Berllnr and from him learned many things about the Gerniah sub-terfugos. which brought aWout this war. Ho mot Canadian boys with the fleet and heard them express the hope that, after the war, Canada would biiild her own navy in order that tho boys who are now learning naval life may have an opportunity for advancement with il fleet of their own. Premier Stewart p.ild ii most magnificent tribute to tho fleet and the groat part it is taking In this war. Impreaslon of Germans When ho got to Franco he got his first real imprcsBlon of tho Germans. Ha had gono over not quite convinced in his own mind that tho Germans wore capable of the atrocities charged to them.
