The Tanks London, July 16.-(Toronto Mall and Empire Cable)-An Important clement In tho present battle will be the work of tanks. The German tanks are like fortified towors, much more heavily armed than the French or British, but are practically useless when they have to leave a road and slow up. The new French tanks can turn in their own length. The latest British tanks also have a power ot mobility of much higher order, than their forerunners. The development of tanks is a remarkable feature of the war and as they are Ideal machine gun posts, they will play a more important part than ever in the new offensive.

Mason, president of the Home ? Bank and honorary treasurer > of the Canadian Red Cross, Montreal, July 16.-It was a busy morning at the hoadannrters of the shopmen. There wos a serious air about tho sltopmcn ao llio fatal hour of two o'clock approached. It was recognized that matters liad reached a climax. U. J. Tallon, chairman ot tho men's commllteo, discussed the situation soberly. "The announcement made at Ottawa last night after a confersnce of the war board with the cabinet, does not change tho situation one Iota," said .Mr. Tallon. "So far as we are concerned, it was the same old offer made to m by tho board- the McAdoo echoauie with amendments. The only differenco in it is that this otter Is wider in its application. It applies to unorganized as well as organized trades. "We have discussed the McAdoo schedule very fully in our negotiations with the war board. The proof that it Is not acceptable in the United States, where It originated, is found In the fact that, even there It wae found necessary to draw up amendments. Ot course, wo have been offered the amendments, whatever they may be, but the trouble is that we have no idea of what they are. "When our committee met the cabinet at Ottawa, they said to us'- " 'Be patient, wait a few days and we will have the amendments to the McAdoo schedule.' Our men have lA'on waiting since January and no progress has been'made so far. Now tho latest information is that the amendments to the McAdoo schedule will not be available until August. In the mRanlimo, in accepting them we would be accepting simethlng tho nature ot what we do not know. We cannot keep our men waiting forever. When the government asked us to wait we waited foi- some time. We took the time to sond out a circular to the membership ot the unions. Th'e reply to that circular was overwhelmingly against further delays, bo on Friday last we served notice on the railway board that we would not delay longer than this afternoon. That notice was not by any means to be construed as a strike order; it was just fixing a time limit In which negotiations could be carried on. After tho expiry of that period, we would have met and decided on our action. That course seems lo be clear." Labor men say the announcement at Ottawa yesterday regarding wages In the railway world showed diplomacy. The McAdoo award with amendments was ottered to the men organized and unorganized and this already had been offered to tlie shopmen by the railway war board time and again, and refused. But the philosophy ot the thing was that in appealing to the various other trades engaged In railway work, the government sought to retain them at work even in tho event of a strike ot shopmen. In other v;ords. a diversion in the ranks of railway labor was tried tor. This at least, is the view of the shopmen here. pressod and down irodden.

It is tho r,orninn boast, and we believe it a legitimate one, that they know America better than do Americans, but their error is in believing that in knowing America they know llio Americans tliemsolves.
