THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR. Germans renowed their attacks along the entire now front agalnal to Americans and Frenc today, but wit no appreciable gain. Five new attacks wore entirely repulsed -with heavy losses. The German loss since the battle started Is said to have been 100,000. The situation in Siberia Is com-nnding attention. The British and American landing on the Jlurman Coast has dra\ra from Premier Len-inc the statement that he n-lil sever diplomatic relations with these countries. AMERICANS ARE DOING NOBLY Reports from the scene of the present great offensive indicate that the new American soldiers, of -whom there are now a ciuarter of a million fully trained aoldiers taking their places in the long battle line from the English Channel to Switzerland, are an admirable fighting machine, and they have shown that they are able to handled- the picked shock hattallons of the Germans In a very creditable and inspiring mannet. There are some who may .consider that -too .iucjli attention is being paid to ihe.Americans at the present time. This, however, is but natural. The Americans arc vrlthstandlrg their first  real J'ests'.aa an army, and the world is ansious to learn how they are able to meet German blows. No one do^ibts that the JYanch and British are withstanding just as hard blows as are being aimed at the Americans, but the 'fact that they can meet the Ger-n\an5 as they do is an accepted fact which, causea no discussion. And as for the Canadians, it Is known they are in special reserve for any,kind of hard'taaks which they may Ije called upon to pe^rm. ^ ' . ' The news of the successes of the Americans in conjunction with the French In breaking down the most ambitious attack of the Huns since March 21st is tlie most heartening news of the year. We know that 1,-100,000 Buch soldiers have crossed the Atlantic under the protection of the British and AUled fleets, and we can be perfectly confident that when the number the United States is prepared to put Into the field before next prlng get under way the Initiative will pass from German Into Allied handM and the^end will be In sight. OPERATORS SHOULD SET THIS RIGHT. The people of Manitoba have the mistaken opinion that the -coal oper: ators are holding them up on the price of coal,'and the sooner their minds are disabused on this point the better for aU concpmed. All the Winnipeg paV pers have been responsible tor spreading this fatee report, and now wo have tho Grain Growers' Guide, usually woU Informed, joining the procession. In our opinion the coal operators should take vigorous steps to combat the story whlcli Is doing much to create aA.impreaslon unfavprable to, the use W' Alberta coal In Manitoba. Hwd' M What the Guide says editorially: The experience which Weetem Canada is having with the coal buslnegs thlB year will do much to develop and trengthen the growing opinion, favoring the nationaliiatton of all' Industries vitaUy related to the life of tho people. The federal govermneift has been very lax Indeed In dealing with k> situation which has been dally he-OomiQS more �eriaus. during the past two monttas. When It became obvious tbat the United States would be reducing our regular annual supply of nthraolte �o�,l 1)y,,l,fl0,000 tone or . tnprer immediate aUentlon by the ab-I�at coTemmaat ofdoiols Bhotiia have �been gtfm towards seouring the mun lAipalitiea �t the west against extor-4loait� prtoM (rom the mine owners at Albert*. Now we 'bare these own-rs repttrtfld aa Mylng to a special , oommitsioo. appolatad by the City of. iWluilpeK, tlut ,tbey, wUll^eep their eo�l nttiar tban srad*it eastward at low�r'prioM than tbo vroTalling quo t�t)�Bi. Tbase suae men, fnrtbemoire, r�(ua�d t^t^-opMi thel* books to the (liupcottiia  of tbci Wlimtpac: resrsisu-, tatlTM, fbtii laaTlng liie impreaaion IM Ihfjr, ^grws UddBS lu^ advantAfio of a oondlUon created through tho cutting oK of tho Import* from tho 'United States. There is every reason to Justify tho federal govarnment tak-bit drastic action in oonnection with Alberta coal production. The mines ought to be commandeered �nd worked on a profit basis similar to that adopted by Uoyd George in Britain when he took over nearly all the factories of England and Scotland for purposes of war. These Alberta mine-owners should bo converted Immo-diately to servants of tho people. IRRIGATION WOULD SOLVE DIFFICULTY. ^ It Is quite proper that Lethbrldge should make a bid this year for the Western Canada Irrigation Association oonvantlon to bo held in Ixth-brldga next,^ear. The flouthom portion of the province has by now como to the conclusion that Irrigation is a great asset Even though tliero may bo many years when no irrigation is noo'bss^ry, wo have special uses for it which would make it worth all the farmers may have to pay for tho possible extensions on which the Dominion Irrigation branch has been at work eurv^ing and mapping out in a preliminary way. Here w^ have tho epectacle (his year of our stockmen hastening to contract for hay from as far north as the Le3ser Slave Lake, when we might be raising all the hay we need on irrigated lands with some surplus for shipment outside the district. We will never become the great stock producing district that is our latent possibility until we make use of the waters of our mountain streams to the full extent of their irrigating powers. Instead of shipping hay In from Lesser Slave w^ should be making use of the water from the moua-talns close at hand at grow our own hay. ^ There is another problem In Southern Alberta^as pouited out hy I'rtfii-dent Marnoch of the Board of Trade the other day. That is the problem of drifting which has been brought forcibly to' our notice this spring. It is evident that as our land grows older in cultivation the fibrous elements become worked out, and the tendency of tho snii to drift increases. Wi must put the fibre back in the soil. This ' can only be done by seeding the land to giasfl or clover, and using It for producing hay for a' few years, and by appl>;ng the manure which can be made by feeding the biy thus produced to livestock. And to produce the hay we need the irrigation. That can be accepted without question. The Herald understands ^that the farmers of the Turin and Iron Springs distriots are now anxious to learn the cost of the project on foot to supply them with irrigation water and that they are likely to ask the government shortly to prepare to go ahead with the project. It Is poselble that they may not want water to Irrigate all their land, but that they will accept the suggestion ~ of _ President Marnoch that sufficient water,.-to irrigate ,40 acres on each quarter section would provide them with water for their livestock and for growing hay. The fact remains, however, that the sooner our farmers put themselves In the position of having water on hand during tho dry seasons the more prceperous the district as a whole will become within a short time. CARMANGAY (Prom The Sun.) Married-In Emmanuel rectory, Car-mangay, on July 3rd by Rev. J. G. Hathway, Thomas Henry Matthews, of Retlaw, and Helen Lucille Jacob-son, of Granum, Alberta. Mr. H. O.
