Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - August 23, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta FRIDAY. AUGUST 23, 1918 THE LETHBRTDGte. :DAn.Y IIERAut* PAGE SEVEN. Spirit of Allies Stronger Than Ever, Says Borden An Atlftnttc Port, Aug. 23.-Sir Robert novdon on hU Innding here today gave tlio following alatemont to the Canadian PresH: "I was on the other fildo of the Atlantlf. Just ton woekn a\id 1 return with the conviction that iiuvor was the spirit of the allied nn-tionn more HleadfaHt or more resolute than at proaont. "The greater portion of my (Into �was spent In Kngland, where I arrived 3u8t after the Gormans had conducted a great oKenalve, first against the British and then against tlio French, during the spring. The effect of that �ucooss has been completely dlasl-patod by the recent defeat of the Aua-trlnns In Italy and of the Germans In ]ance. SlnCo I left Ottawa on-May L'l. about 1,000,000 troops have crossed the Atlantic from the United States. I have aeon many,thousands of them on board ship and. in the camps that I visited. It Is Impossible to ovor-eBtlmato the Increased confl-ilenco -wRh which the arrival of this mighty army has inspired tho allied Nations. All Europe la Impressed by their splendid physique, their resource-tulnoBS and their adaptiblUty, tho remarkable rapidity and thoroughness with which thoy have acquired necos-sary training, and, finally, tho magnificent fighting qualities which they iiave displayed In every hattle In V.'hlch thoy have been tested. It is beyond question that tho victory of the last ifour weeks would not have been Tiosslblo except for the American divisions which have taken their place In tho battle line. ^ Effective Co-operation. "There was most effective and harmonious co-operation between armies oJ tfie United States. Great Britain and France. From Sir David Boatty, �a well as from Admiral Slmma and Admiral Rodman, I know that this is' opually true of the British and American navies. Canadian Victory. "Tho Canadian army welcome the opportunity to fight side by side with tholr kinsmen of this commonwealth. Tho cUlzsn soldiers of both countries uro both essentially of tho same typo, and the Germans already have found tliora equally formidable. During the Gorman offensive in tho early spring most or the Canadian divisions were not en�agod, but during tho recent �weeks tliey have won as conspicuous a victory as ever foil to th�lr lot since fho outbreak of tho,war. Driving forward on ft consldornblo front, thoy hurled back tho Germans fourteen aullos and captured nearly 10,000 prisoners and- more than 150 cannon. Tholr cn.sualtl03 numbered considerably Ic'ss than their prisoners and they hold all the ground which they capttirod. "The men from both countries have learned to rnnllze most vividly the savage malignancy of Germany's purpose and methods. Thoy- are doter-mlnaOjlhat this war shall be fought to a finish and that there shall bo no re-potltlon of its horrors. The devils by �whom German mllitarlats are ruled must bo cast out; the spell with which thoy have bound the German people must be broken. Until then Germans cannot becomq regenerate. It may be a hard lesson, but the German people must learn it. "As the mastery of the air passes more and more completely to the nl-llos, the Gorman people will more and more realize thi-ough war carried tp their own terrltorloa, the martyrdom to which they rolontleaaly submitted other nations. It may be a hard los-Ron, but they cannot be saved from themselves unless they aro compelled to learn it. It is equally tho duty of the allied nations to' purge Germany of her madness by unsparing use of economic pressure until she �hall have given up hor dreams of world conquest. Let no unseltlah purpose or divergence of Interest impede united action to this end. An assassin state must be harrod from the society of decent commonwealths until they are convinced of Its sincere repentance. Canada's Responsibilities. "As one of the free nations of the Hrltan'nlc commonwealth Canada undertook her part In this war of her own free will through the voice of her parliament and with a re^iilzatlon of hor duty to that commonwealth and humanity. She fights with no aggres-Blvo or unseUlBli purpose, but to secure the peace of the world, to safeguard liberty and to malnlain public right. She Is thoroughly conscloua that vaat responsibllltleB will rest upon the allied tiailoDs and oapeclully upon tho Briliah and tho American commonwealthB when conditions of peace como to be signed, i firmly believe that the future peace of the world rests largely and, Indeed, chiefly, upon unity of notion between thoae two democracies. Unless this tronien-doUB rcaponslblilty Is ^realized and met we sh lil rot have fulfilled our highest duty to this or to future generations. With natloflA, as with Individuals, power Is Inseparable from responsibility and duty cannot 'bo fulfilled by declining a Just call to leadership, however dlfflcult^ltn task may be. I trust that these two mighty democracies, united by strong ties of klnsliip, language and ideals, may inspire others with complete confidence, and sympathy in earnest and unselfish purpose and action, to command tho world's peace, and to ensure safety and equality for the smaller na-tionalltlBs and for the backward races of tho world. That supreme result would. Indeed, crown all our sacrifices, and would give us much hope from a wider League of Nations." alt THE CANADIAN SALT CO, LIMJTEO ADVOCATES A GREATER lASORE OF STATE CONIR Economic Expert Tells of DifH-culties in Way of Complete Govt. Ownership E BY POLISH PEOPLE Amsterdam, Aug. 23.-A dispaU'h to the Frankfort Gazette from Vienna says the demands of the Poles, submitted during tho recent conference at German main headquarters, called for the malntalnence of the present frontier; the Incorporation of certain Lithuanian territory as compensation for the cession of three Lithuanian districts in tho government of Su Wal-kl; access to tho Baltic; the neutralization of the lower course of the Vistula niver, and the railroad along It; recognition of Danzig as a free port; the abolition of the present divided Austro^Gerraan administration of Poland; the transfer of the financial ad-rainlatratloa and government to the civil government of Poland.

STATEMENT TELLS OF AIR ACTIVITIES OPEN TO GILL NET FISHING Victoria, B. C, Aug. 23.-In April, 1.917, the Dominion government at the requeat of tho provincial governmetit passed an order In council providing regulations for commercial .Ishin? in certain non-tldal -waters In the Fnrt George district. Under these provisions white fish, char and lake trout could be taken by means of gill nets. It has developed also that there is a considerable supply of sturgeon in these lakes and Hon. William Sloan, commissioner of flsherloa for BriCiah Columbia has requested that all the lakes in the FoM George and OmIneca districts shall be opened to glU net fishing for all kinds of fish except salmon and sturgeon. He also asks 1 (hat Bablne, Stuart, Fraser and Fran cla Lakes bo opened to gill net fishing for sturgeon.

"On the night of August 21-22, the weather conditions were exceptionally good and a large amount O' tho work was carried out by our squadron.
