Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - August 21, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta TUESDAY, AUGUST 20,1918 THE LKTHBRIDGE DAILY HERALD PAGE FIVI-: Livesay Tells of Valiant Deeds of Western Cavalry Regiments (Uy J. 1''. B. lilvBRay, Cauadinn Proaa CorroHpomlont.) With the Caniullan forces, Aug. 21, �-(Via London.)-It la now poaHlblo to record aomo of tho exploits of .the Canadian cavalry on tho three opening days of tho Sommo battle. None Is more tragic n^d wonderful than the rldu to death of aonio men of a well known ,wo�teni roBlment. The env-nlry waa aot to' tho lawk of hreaklni! through the enemy lines and destroying hia hack org'anlzation. It undertook Home adventuroH (n thla quest over a rench Infantry line and then, galloping over trenches and wire, ca))-tured the village of Andechy, and with It' a very large enemy supply depot and a conalderable number of prlson-er.i. Tho .squadron held the village in the faco of enemy attacka until It was taken over by the FYench Infantry. Another famous cavalry regiment, whose deeds in the South African war aro a matter of Canadian history, niado on the opening day an attack on Qucsnel, but the charge was stopped by the enemy's machine guns in a sunken road. The squadron swung to the right and the left, and here the major leading Itgot in advance of his men and with one corporal defended himself in a scrub for four hours ag alnst tho Boche. until he finally rejoined his men under cover of nfght. A Real Western Feat., Another troop galloped into Fres-noy. on the right, surprising the garrison and rounding up 150 prisoners. The enemy came back In force and the troop was obliged to withrtraw. rejoining the regiment with all their prisoners. In this village was -wit-nease iharter and hire many additional ships. ' All Going Satisfactorily With The British Army in France, Aug. 21.-(Associated i'rf.33)- Only feeble resistance was (Miinuntered by the British at first on a I'roni of about ten thousand yards soiitliwnril from Moyennevllle. Fifty minutes later the front waa widened to ilu' southward until it extended all tlif way to the Ancve River.( _^ The Germans hero scpnicd to have been keeping the bull; nl' their forces well to the rear, thouph lipavy nghting may be expected, ospiKially along the Arraa-Albert railroad. The battle now ragiiiR. which is reported from all points tu be progressing satisfactorily, is being fought over ground which has seen siome of the war's bitterest fighting. While tho ground is fiat, it is cut to pieces with trenches and shell holes and is covered with piece after piece of wire, old and new. Tanks Active A more dlttlcult and desolate country for fighting iJoes not exist anywhere. The British tanl;s are performing the same galliinl services as they did In the battles (0 the south of the Somme. It is obvious that the allies, having driven into tho enemy stomach at tho iMarnc-and delivered a .smashing hlov/ to the right ear south of the Somme, are now giving the hoilie a crack on tho left jaw which may make him even more groggy bcfoio he has time to recover from the other two defeats. A number of wounded Germans are trickling back, but. It Is noticeable that here as In the battles south of the Somme the British casualties hjive been exceptionully light. This probably la partly duo to the elliciency of the tanks. Within the last half hour, the fog has cleared and the sun now is shining on the battle noUi giving the airplanes a chance to work with tho infantry and tanks which have broken into the enemy positions. No reports have been received from Logeast Wood, whore tho enemy was THURSDATS GROCERY SPECIALS 7c. Apex Marmalade. 4 lb, pall. Special .................. Carnation Milk, small size.

There were fifty from tho second guards division and the fourth Bavarian guards. Some field guns fell into the hands of the British very early in the attack.

Aug. 21.-A final broach between the tv>-o vevolulionary parties in Russia was manifest from tho opening of the fifth congress of ali-Rus-alan Soviets at Moscow early in July, according to a number of belated Renter dispatches covering hapiionings In Russia during tho lirst halt of July. Uproarious scenes and recriminutlon marked tho meeting of tlio congress. An assertion that a majority of the people in the provinces were opposed to Soviet rule was made by Maria Splrldono**, of the Soda! Hevolution-Ists of the Left. In a report on foreign relations. Foreign Minister Tchitcheriu announced that the commissaries had demanded the withdrawal of Brillah. French and American warships from tho Mur-man Coast and iind dispatched Soviet troops there as u reply to the British landing there. Tchitcherin said (hat Russia was ready to renounce some of her rights in tlie Chinese Eastern Railway and ^would sell tho southern branch to Japan. The government also was willing to facilitate the importation of .lapanese goods and to admit the Japanese to wide participation in the industrial and commercial life in Siberia. MHillo 'the Soviet niaJorUy in the congress repudiated all possibility of a renewal of tlio war. the Social Revolutionists of tho Left insisted on a merciless struggle against all "Imperialistic plunderers and German robbers." 'A small rising of arm�d Social Revolutionists of the Lett incladiug sail-ore from the Black Sea Hoe', occurred , lu Moscow on July 7. It was sup-I pressed after machine gun fighting in the center of the city. A part of the day tho enemies of the Bolshevik! held tho post and telegraph offices. Some members, of the Left-ists' active committee, including Miss Spiridonova, were arrested. A similar rising, but on a smaller scale, took place in Petrograd. It was put down after revolvers had been bombarded by machine guns and armored cars. , On July 8 all the delegates of the Social-Revolutionists of the Left to tiio all-Ru.ssian congress were arrested and the town and government of Vologda were declared in a state of siege owing to the anti-Soviet uprisings at Jaroslav. Railway and telegraphic communication between Moscow and tho north was interrupted. The outstanding feature of the all-Russlan congress was the denuncia-ions by Minister of War Tratzky of the action of the allies In landing on tho Murraan Coast and In helping the Czecho-Slovaks. He threatened merciless measures of defense and on Juli' 13 M. Tchitcherin in a note to the British representative in Moscow, made a sinister, reference to the "re suit which may arise from tlje excito-maut caused among the masses of the Russian population of the unprovoked attack on Murraan.'! On the same day 11 former oflicers, who had served with General .\lexiefr, were summarily shot lu Moscow as countor-rovolulibnaries. On July 18, French and British military officers were prohibited ffoin moving from one town to another and a strict watch ou their movements was ordered. London. Aug. 21, -Aerial operations by air forces attached to the British navy during the period between August !."< and 18 are .shown to have been very extensive, in an olflcial report issued today by the admiralty. The statement reads: "During the period from August 15 to 18 inclusive. Royal Air Force (on-tingents, working with the navy, have bombed llin following military obiec-tlves: Wolway Works at Zeebrugge; the docks at Bruges, batteries at Wcst-endo. the Osteiid docks and airdromes at Zeebrugge, Aertryko and Mlddle-kerke, tho Passahcndacio Canal, ammunition dumps at St. Alhillo. Middlc-kerke. Lffeinghe, and Zeebrug,';9, the Bruges Canal and enemy s'.ii,i.nnig. "Between fifteen and sixteen tons of bombs were dropped and good results were obtained. Rsconnaissan-ces, photographic and anti-suhniarine patrols have been maintained. During tho course of these oporntions nine enemy machines have been destroyed and eight driven down JUt of control. We have lost four machines, one of which landed in Holland' and three officers have been woimded. In home waters during tlvo same period antisubmarine convoys, and hostile aircraft patrols have been maintained by seaplanes, airplanes iind airships. Submarines have been sighted and at-tacked and mines located and destroyed. One of our machines has tailed to return from patrol." felted every right, for the remaining five months of the year. When an attempt was made by the father to keep the child a longer lime than tho (�ourt bail allotted him, the mother Instinct prevailed and she killed her husband. It was a reversion to the primitive woman that made her kill-tho same motlier love that makes the tigress defend Its young or the bird to fly In your face when you take the fledgling from lt,s nest. It was this view that the Jury took In "Woman and the Law";-that the mother was not responsible for what she had done; that her mother love had been so aroused by the attempt of the father to take away the child, that she had become crazed. ' '.Mother mania" was the plea of bor counsel that won aciiiiittul for his client. raiiY ON M Ronio, Aug. 21.-There was consld crablo artillery activity along the en tire Austso-ltalion front yesterday, says the official statement lissued today by the Italian War Office. Enemy reoonnoitering patrols on the banks ot the Piave River wore beaten back. Four hostile airplanes were brought down. AT THE EMPRESS "Woman and tho I^aw" will be played for a third time at the Empress to-ight. "Woman and the Law" establishes the undoubted superior right ot the mother to her child, for it was over the possession of the child that the dreadful tragedy occurred. In divorce proceedings, brought by tho mother, the Solomons of the law had cut the child in twain, giving him to the mother for seven months of the ebr and to the fatlier, who because of' his shameless conduct had tor- BIG YIELDS BARLEY AND OATS |N ONTAWO Toronto, Aug, 20.-Some of 1 the barley fields of the province this year will yield sixty-five bushels to the acre, according to the weekly report of the Ontario Department of Agriculture. The best average return for one county in Ontario last year was not less than forty bushols. The average for the whole province In the banner year of 191S was only 36 bushels. Oats are also a bumper crop. SPANISH GRIPPE-lfJ SWISS ARMY Borne, Aug, 21,-There has been so much exaggeration concerning tho high mortality among sufftj^^ers from the Spanish grippe that the following stntlsttcs are interesting. Deaths in tho Swiss army d}io to the grippe to the present aggregate 477. The mortality has been about two per cent. Tho army medical service has sufterod most severely in proportion to tho other branches of the service, seven doctors and twenty-oue members o� the medical staff having died, GRAND PUKE ARRESTED. Amsterdam, Aug, 21.-The for-mer Russian Grand Duke. Paul Alexandrovltch, says a Moscow dispatch to the Lokal Anzelger of Berlin, has been arrested by the Bolshevlkl. He is an uncle of .the late emperor and father of ^ Grand Ouke Olmltrl Paulovitcb. AT STARLAIVD IS WOMAN THE CHIEF WAR SUFFERER? Tho much debated question as to whether men or women feel most severely the terrlhle burden oC war has been thoroughly touched upon in the tremendously' patriotic picture, "Tho Thing We Love," which every good Amorlcan man, woman and child ought to see and think about. The question is as old as war itself and the nearest solution that wo have ever seemed to roach is that It usually falls equally heavy upon thp shoulders of all.
