Subsequently the Canadians �\vcro heing hard pressed by the enemy who was strongly posted iu a wood. They appealed tor assistance to a French regiment on their^llanks. The Jfrench immediately advanced land completely turned the position. The French government shortly afterward found themselves similarly sitiiftted. They appealed to the Can-jidians and the latter also Immediately attacked and saved the situaion.

It Is added that the change does not affect Colonel Thesleff, the commander-in-chief of the sea and land forces. visited batilefield Tesiiiies to Enthusiasm and Efficiency of Canadian Forces Under Currie tribute to a cowley j. p. Country Would Be Great Loser If He Was Allowed to Leave I^onuon, Aug. 27.- (Canadian Press Dispatch from Router's Limited)-Sir Edward Kemp, Canadian overseas minister ot militia, has returned from Franco, where he visited the Canadian corps and went over the ground captured by the Canadians in their victory before Amiens. The minister's visit was first to personally congratulate General Currie and his offlcers on their magnificent success and secondly to discuss with General Currie important questions affecting the administration ot the corps. From the commander down all Canadians in Franco are most optimistic over the result of the present conditions, Pir Edward was greatly interested to hear from the different offlcers the story of the part which each branch of the Canadian forcesi played in the great battle. Sir Edward Kemp spent one day of his trip going around the battlefield a;id was greatly impressed by the enormous quantity ot munition and war material left behind by the Germans in their hurried retreat. Tho minister was particularly struck with the way the railroads had been put into shape by the engineers Immedlatofty after the intantrj' advance, so that the artillery could go forward. He inspected a park of captured cannon, about 150, which tho Canadian corps had captured. They wore ot all sizes, ranging from tho latest model ot the nine-inch long range gun of tho Krupp.s' 1918 manufacture to wickod-looki^ig anti-tank guns. Tho Canadiaji captures were proudi ly marked with tho namo ot tho unit which took them. The minister later saw huge salvage dumps of all kinds ot war material picked up on tho battle field including machine guns and all sorts ot equipment. i Vienna, Aug:. 2�.-(via London.)- In Albania Austrian troops have recaptured Borat and the town of Fieri, near tho mouth ot tho SemenI, says tho official statement from Austro- tlungarian hoavni.'.nK tro.ipH, Niagariv. Cowley, Aug. 2C.-P. i. Biddull. who has for fifteen years adminislorod the law in this district is scIlInK out and it is believed that his intention is to go to Franco. It wijl bo an enormous loss to tho neighborhood if ho is allowed to go. lie probably has loss enemies and more iilonds than, any other man In (he scutli, everyone here-Jibouts has got into tho habit of going to him both willingly, and unwillingly for speedy and impartial justice. Hundreds 'of cases have boon kept out of tho lawyers' hands by his reputation for absolute impartiality as an arbitrator; it has long been tho habit of Pinchor Creek justices of the peace to send for him when a case was on hand requiring justice, ability and firmness. His reputation locally has been so great that a case actually occurred wherein two .foreigners came before him for a divorce. Tho time of their coming was early in July and ho told them to ^o homo and wait till after haying. Wlien haying was over they had reconsidered their dit-forencos and wero still living together In peace a?)d amity. His countless friends believe he can do the Germans infinitely more harm by staying in Alberta and administering tho law than by going to France and pulling the trigger ot a rifle. In this ago of nickels and dimes it is a thing both rare and refreshing to discover a men who on no single occasion has evor considered himself before his duty or his personal feelings before his oath ot office. Tho petty thief and deserter, tho drunkard and tho boot-legger will be tho sole beneficiaries by his departure. If he can bo induced to stay, whatever province he may reside in will profit from his presence. begin to talk of AVith tho British Army iu Franco, Aug. 20.-(Associated Press)-The idea ot a change in tho government seems to' oticupy a place in the thoughts of many German soldiers, judging from remarks made by prisoners' Quo ot those who has expressed hopes of a change was a soldier from Baden. Ho said ho and his comrades hud had more war than Ihoy wanted and hoped that as soon as .war was over Baden wouUl become an independent republic. RIoro Alsatians have\ been captured by tho British. One of them said ho refused for three years to enter the German army. Ho finally was dragged in by force and since then has been mostly'in tho front linos. largest and most popular of the German liners before it was taken over by the government, has been in the h.irbor for some time undergoing repairs.
