Alberta Battalion Figured In Capture New Ground On Lens Front Today ATTORNEY ARRESTED Salem, Mo., Aug. 24.-G. C. Datton, a local attorney, was arrested here to-Say by a deputy United States marshal on a charge of violating the selective draft by attempting to help persons evade the draft. (By the Canadian . Overseas 1 Correspondent). Canadian Army Headquarters In Franco, Aug. 25.-Another carefully planned minor operation by the Alberta battalion which holds that part of the lino oast of St. Theodore in the region known by our men as the cricket pitch, on account of its flatness, gave uh possession of 250 yards of German front line with light casualties today. The attack was made at 2 o'clock this morning and the enemy resistance was weak compared with former defensive efforts in this sector. Tlio trenchos captured and a communication trench, were found to contain a largo number of German dead, many of them killed In the fighting two days ago when we failed to drive them out. At that time the enemy parties appeared  In such unexpected quarters that it was believed that the dugouts in the trenches were connected by underground passages with the main German positions In the heart of Lens. To make sure that the enemy would not again use these dugouts as a means of pushing reinforcements In behind our advanced posts, thoy were all blown In before the work of Incorporating the new trenches into our line was begun. Tho sain this morning, being due west of the heart of the city, ban straightened out our line and the point of tho German offensive wedge has been broken off. Testimony to the efficient JJritisli and Canadian artillery which co-operated in the best fight bf August Ifith, is given by a wounded prisoner of the 100th regiment which was so badly cut up by gun-fire while getting into position that it never took any part. In the battle and had to be withdrawn. The prisoner said that the | second battalion of the regiment left over half of Its strength in St. Augustc far back from the front, while waiting orders and the first battalion suffered Btill more heavily. The concentration of fire which caused those losses was turned on as a result of the report of one of our aviators who saw Germans gathering in St. Auguste for a counterattack upon Hill 70. The losses on the day were so great as to cause the abandonment of all plans for the recovery of the hill. MAGIC BAKING POWDER A Call to Miners from the President of U. M.

July 20.-To the Officers and Members of District No. 12, United Mine WorkerB ot America - Greeting: Our country is at war. Forced to enter a conflict that could no longer be avoided with safety to the liberties of the people of Amorica and the democracies of the world, our country is now straining every energy in preparation to participate In the most appalling tragedy that has overtaken mankind since the beginning of time. The momentous decision of our government to throw the nation's resources Into this mighty conflict and to give of her sons, and of her wealth, to the cause of humanity, imposes upon every American and upon every man who has partaken of America's bounty the solemn obligation of loyally doing their part to win victory for the cause America represents, no matter whether they be found as soldiers in the battle lines or as workers in industrial pursuits, and it is reasonable to expect that the government will not deal kindly with those who fall to, respond in the fullest to that solemn obligation. It Is my purpose to bring home to you, as impressively as. I know how, your importance to the nation in this, its time of stress. The. full significance of this awful cataclysm that has overtaken* the world and our relation thereto Is as yet by us scarecly realized, though thousands of our countrymen are now behind the battle lines and myriads more are preparing to follow. These, our countrymen, tho se lect of America, scholars, college men, professionals of all the arts and trades and sciences, sons of the rich and sons of the poor, men who love life as well as we, but who prefer liberty to life without liberty, have made com mon cause and entered the lists In answer to the nation's needs. These men, every one a hero, with the cour age of Spartans and the souls of martyrs, will go to tho battle grounds to face every death-dealing device hu man brain can devise for the destruction of man and offer their lives in defence of democracy and the freedom of the peoples ot the world, and they will do this with the full knowledge that millions of their kind have already been ruined physically and mentally and left to suffer a living death while other millions have been blasted into bits .and their shreds trampled in to the muck and mire of this thundering inferno ot death and destruction, and upon those who stay at home will devolve the obligation of making it possible for those at the front to have a fighting chance. So that you may understand clearly how important you are to the success of the allied armies, you should know that more than two yean ago 240,000 British miners were enlisted under the colors of England. As a result, Am j erica's allies are now badly crippled by a shortage of coal and France and Italy in particular are now desperate ly calling for American coal. This condition will be made more severe by enlistments and possible drafts from the ranks ot American minora. Men who are hi a position to know tell us that a more plentiful supply of coal is necessary to success. The essentials of war must be had. Coal Is the basic essential and Indispensable. Without a sufficient supply our soldiers will be inadequately equipped and denied a fighting chance. Government bodies are employing extraordinary means to DRAYING Of All Kinds WesternTransferCo.

In suggesting that you co-operate, it is not intended that you should allow any properly established standard of employment to be destroyed. The contrary is true. The power of your organization will be used to safeguard every right you now have. Established standards shall not be disturbed by your disadvantage and no wage reductions shall be allowed. Instead advantage will be taken of every legitimate opportunity to improve standards and to increase wages, but this must be done at the appointed time in a regular way and through the instrumentality of our union. However, it is intended that It shall be made clear to you that tho practice ot shutting down mines in violation of our agreement to force some desired condition, and of suspending work under every conceivable pretext, must be stopped. It Is also Intended to point out to you that illegal restrictions, which curtail production, must bo removed and that you must respect the laws of our union and continue at work as you are required to do by the provisions of our Joint agreement. Surely this is not asking too much of those who will stay at home in the light of what will be endured by those who go to tho battle grounds to participate in the most appalling war ever fought by mankind. And you are urged to do so, not alone because it Is your patriotic duty to tho nation in this time of stress, but as well because it is right and rb, R,qUMt an(j CHARLIE CHAPLIN in "ON EASY STREET" BIG SPECIAL TONIGHT 10c-16c .DorothyPhillips4iresof Rebellion Supported by Lon Chancy and William Stowell and Company SCREEN MAGAZINE.
