Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - July 4, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta VOLUME XI. LETHBRIDGE, ALBERTA, THUJ^SDAY, JULY 1, 1918 NUMBER 172 ALLIES PENETRATE HUN TRENCHES ALUED NATIONS HONOR AMERICA ON INDEPENDENCE DAY Pres. Wilson Reaffirms Aims and Determination of America in the War Shall Be No Talk of Peace Until Military Autocracy is Crushed Into Ground REITERATES AIMS OF DEMOCRACIES Washington, July 4.-President Wilson to-day nnaworod nil feelers for a compromise peace with a new and unqualified consecration of America to tiio strugBlo for clearing military autocracy from the earth. At an Independence Day gathering on the slopes of Mount Vernou, homo and tomb of George Washington, and Burroundod by scones which looked upon the creation of this nation, the liresldent addre^Keu � small gathering of officials and of diplomats of the allied nations. But ho spoke to the world and ho epoko tho logical sequql to his "force �without stint or limit" declaration of eeveral weeks ago. Unreservedly the president declared that there could bo no thought of a peace which did not mean the de Btructlon of military autocracy or its reduction to virtual impotence. "A reign of law based on the consent of tho governed and sustained iby tho organized opinion of mankind," was the way he summarized in a-single sentence the objects of Jiumflnlty In tho world war. Whether tho president was addressing hiB remarks directly to tho recent Bpeeoh of German Foreign Secretary Von-Kiielilmann'or'to the foreah'afloNv' . lot a renewed German peace offensive or whether he merely took the occa-elon of the celbnitlon of Independence Day to emphasize to tlie world the war alma of tho nation, can only bo divined. He did not deal with the progress of tho war or any particular phase of It, but he spoko eloquently of America's attitude toward Germany's so-called peace treaties in the east by grouping tho people of Rua-,iila "tor the moment unorganized and helpless'' among the peoples of the world standing against the enemies of liberty. "The past and tho present are in ,rtoadly grapple and tho peoples of the world are being done to death between them," said Presldnt Wilson. "There can bo but one Issue. The settlement must he final. There can be no com promise. No half way decisions would be tolerable. No half way decision is conceivable. These are the ends for-^vhich the associated peoples of the world are fighting and which must be conceded them before there can be j)oace." The Speech. The President spoke as follows: "Gentlemen of the diplomatic coirs &nd my fellow citizens: I am happy to draw apart with you to this quiet ))lace of old counsel In order to speak a little on the meaning of this day ot our national Independence. The place mm m A Significant Celebration tllR RK-UNION of tho Anglo-Saxon race In common cause to free tho world ot military autocracy in the name of democracy, has been made dofinlto and complete today by tho celebration, for tho first timo lu history, of American Independence Day, in the great British capital. Never boforo liaH tho celebration of tho Fourth of July taken on a deeper aigniticanco. Today It is coincident with the appearance on the battle-fields of France, side by side with the British Tommy, ot more than a million ot America's finest fighting men. I':ven as Americans are celohrat-Ing, their sokliers are sacrificing their lives In common with the Britisher on the battlofront of freedom. Nothing, apparently, that can ever happen now, can ever again separate (ho two groat empires tliat acknowledge the English language as' the common tongue. It .was Lord Heading, lord chief justice of Knglanrt, who, tho other day, standing in tho halls of Harvard university, suggested that an o\itcome ot the world war would bo a permanent Anglo-American alliance for. defensive and other purposes, and It was the president of Harvard himself who gave Lord Reading support In this'proposal. Today's celebration ot American day brings such an alliance much closer to an accomplished fact. Rome, July 4.-In their offen--sive movement begun Tuesday along the lower Plave front near the Adriatic, th�- Italians continued to gain ground yesterday. The War Oflce announced to-day that additional progress had been made by the Italian forces north of Cavazuccherlna.
