Petrograd^ July 18.-At a conference of ministers and workmen's and soldiers' delegates last evening it was decided to place the city under martial control. General Polovtzeff, governor of the military district, was summoned and instructed to use all tho loyal troops to put down the insurrection. As a result he' ordered out the Cossacks and several companies of infantry to patrol the streets. One of the first clashes between the opposing forces occurred on Troltsky bridge whero tho Cossacks met a body of armed demonstrants. The Cossacks were armed only with eahres, and a brisk Tiro was opened by tho insurrectionists whereupon the Cossacks fled up Litcnay prospect many of them abandoning their horses. Several Cossacks and 12 horses were killed. Later a brush between armed government troops and Maximalists occurred in the" neighborhood of tho duina.

Orasty, the New York Times correspondent, makes a strong plea for every available American ship to be sent to European waters in order to combat the submarine menace. In STILL HOPING 10 question in full, I will call the reader's attention to tiie fact that the following named citizens have pledged their personal liability for an amount approximating in order to In- troduce the Chutauqua to the people of our elty. These citizens are as follows: John D. lllglnbolhani, J. K. Hodgson, David II. ICIlon, \V. S. IJall. P. Lund, i U. II. Dobson, John Hnrne, \V. 1 "MUl-a-A. K. Cocq, D. S.

The support of this urgini,' he cables the following article: Revision of Opinion London, July 18.-The change at the admiralty, by which Sir Kric Ged-des succeeds Sir Edward Carson, c;;lis attention to submarine conditions and there lias been, a sharp revision of opinion in the last few hours as a result, of the re-examiiiatlon of facts and The prime minister's recent assurance had a sedative effect on the public mind, but discussion by well informed persons, particularly In banking and commercial circles, in the past few days, has brought out conditions that arc disquieting. "The confidence in the submarine situation appears to have had no foundation more substantial than the hope that some scientific means was surely in tho way of being found to put the submarine finally and entirely out. of business. The syllogism is that America is a wonderfully inventive country and America is now a belligerent: ergo America will invent a solution If Successful Session Will Not Last Long-Alien Enemies To Be Disfranchised writer feels honored to be associated 1 for the submarine, with such men and women. But tho j "What has escaped attention, and reader asks, "whero is the rake-off?" "Who makes tho money?" The answer is: it is not a money-making what is now brought to tho fore by the change at the admiralty, is the inexorable fact, which anybody with proposition. One-quarter of tho bal- j knowledge of the rule of four can ci-ance comes to the committee. If any pher out for himself, that at the pros- ERITISH HELP RUSSIANS Washington, July 18.-British . armored motor detachments are taking part'in tho Russian offensive in Gal-Ida, according to semi-official Information received today from Petro-grjid by tho Russian embassy hero. This la tho first mention of tho presence of British forces in' Russia, and says the armored ears are co-oporat-ing effectively with Bolgian detachments sent there soon after the war bc;an. Ottawa, Oht, July 19.-It. 1b probable that the military service bill will receive the third reading in the commons before the end of the week. It will be taken out of the committee atage today. Under the rolos ot the house a day Is supposed to Intervene between tho committee stage and the third reading, but it will probably bo proceeded with by agreement on Friday. Before the end of next week it should be through the senate. According to tho Morning Citizen negotiations looking to the formation of a union government are still in progress. If they are successful it would probably mean a considerable curtailment in the sessional program such proposed legislation as the new franchise act and the highways bill being dropped. The Citizen says: "Efforts by the, government at pros-" ent are being directed toward effecting some agreement with an element of the Liberals but no very substantial headway seems to have been made, as yet. On the Liberal sido there is much doubt as to whether anything will come of it. Some are willing but fear boing classed as ron-egados among the rank and file of tho Conservatives. There is also considerable opposition to anything savoring of a union o� forces with the erstwhile enemy, but if the premier can bring It about, the recalcitrant followers will soon bo reduced to a condition of silence. "There are no doubts that a federal franchlso, debarring naturalised aliens, will be Introduced so that In some way the situation may be got nt. The soldiers' franchise act is likely to be amended to facilitate their voting overseas." of this is left after paying the necessary expenses, it is pledged by the terms of the contract to tho Patriotic, Red Cross or Sailors' Relief funds. Surely the Chautauqua must be a good thing for tho town and community, otherwise those citizens would not put themselves in a position in regard to it, whore they can get no personal gain, and yet may stand to looose. But this is not all, in the Chautauqua movement, Lethbridge is ,the pioneer city of tho Canadian prairies. Between Fort William and Vancouver, Lethbridge was the first city to contract for a Chautauqua, our position therefore is unique. In a later issue, I shall take occasion to let you know more about what the Chautauqua Is. etc., but at tho present time I shall content myself by appealing to every loyal citizen of Lethbridge and surrounding country, whether he or she be man, woman, boy or girl, to remember that our Chautauqua will bogin August 7 and continue till, tho 13th inclusive, and that it cannot bo the success that it should be unless you help to make it so. We promise you that you will not be disappointed when you expect something. ent rate of construction and destruc- tion there can't possibly at the end of a few months bo shipping enough, unless British commitments elsewhere are considerably curtailed, to teed Kngland and France and maintain the present armies in tho field. As for conveying America's armies to Europe and maintaining them, it will simply be out of the question. Tho loss of ships by submarines total sixteen hundred thousand tons a month or from two to three times the total of new construction. "There is no possibility whntcvor of tho construction capacity overtaking the present rate o� loss in time to avoid a peace being forced on the allies. "What is wanted, therefore, is to largely increase the destruction of U-boats. The British government is and tho American government ought to be, eye to eye with the staggering fact that the allies have got to find a way to curb the submarine or lose' the war, a way not yet found nor evenj approached, except experimentally.'! The damage by submarines has been reduced by American co-operation, but every single ton of effective ship-1 ping against submarines ought to bo sent to European waters without a single hour's delay." Week's Losses. London, July 18.-Fourteen Britisli ships of over l, ? ;� ? persons received sentonces averaging 18 months. At a big labor meeting vigorous protests were made against the severity of tho sentences. Suspension of tho sentences of children and minors and guarantees ngi:lnst reduction of the bread ration were demanded. MARKETS U. S. WORK IN FRANCE.

American lumbermen will take out lumber for railroad ties, barracks and other purposes. In addition to this 30,000 tons of lumber will be imported from America monthly. Petrograd, July 19.-Russian troops have Again driven into the Qallclan village of Novlca, south of Kalusz, and now occupy the eastern end of that place. Germans Repulsed Paris, July lfl.-The Germans made an attack last night on a front of 800 meters south of St. Quentln. The war office announced that the enemy gain* ed a footing in the French first lino, but was expelled from the greater part of these positions by a counter attack. A German attempt to regain ground captured by the French near Avocourt wood, on the Verdun front, was defeated. The official statement follows: "Our artillery and the enemy's were active over the whole front. There waa especially violent firing between the Somme and the Aisne near Vauclerc and Craonne, and on the left bank of the Meuse.

The enemy gained a footing in our first trench line, but was driven out of the greater part of the occupied positions by a counter-attack. "After a very intense bombardment last night the Germans made a counter-attack on our new positions at Avoucourt wood, but were checked by our fire before they were able to reach our Hues. "Attacks on our trenches at Pantheon, south-east of Sapigneul and near Douauraont were repulsed completely. One of our detachments ln-an operation east of Badonvillers succeeded in Inflicting serious losses on the enemy arid in taking prisoners." Rude Shock For Prince French Front in France, July. 18.- (By the A.P.).-The crown prince's army suffered the rudeBt shock when the French yesterday attacked and recaptured all the positions northwest, of Verdun. These cost the Germans' much hard fighting when they took them from the French. The affair cost the Germans not only the loss ot their former conquest and about 500 prisoners, but the French cut Into their lino. Repeated counter attacks by the Germans failed to recover any part thereof and resulted even in more losses. The Germans when they advanced at the end of June obtained possession of a number of observatories giving them splendid views of the French line. British Report London, July 19.-"As a result of the recent fighting east of Monchy Le Preux the advanced posts from which; our troops were compelled to fall back by the enemy's attack on July 11th have now been re-established," says today's official statement, "Hostile raiding parties were re� pulsed last night west of Cherisy before reaching our trenches. We made successful raids north and east of Ypres, and secured prisoners. A few  other prisoners were captured by us in an unsuccessful hostile attack upon one of our advanced posts."
