Canadian Army Headquarters In Prunce, July 1!0.-Early this morning Canadian troops holding tlio front bo-tween Avion and Lens In tho flooded j arena established a post woll to the north of any hitherto occupied. There wis little retaliation from the Ger-maiiti. The new post is only l.fiOO yards from the heart of Lens! The German defence of Lens Is worthy of a hotter cause. As our patrol.! push forward through the mass of crumbling rubbish which now murks the site of one of France's greatest pro-war Industrial communities, evidence is found everywhere that the enemy intends to hold the centre of the city until his losses become unendurable. The front line Is marked by rows of houses that havo been battered down to add their debris to the strength of the cellars wherein the Germans shelter themselves from the Increasing artillery lire directed against them by the Canadians. Wire entanglements have been constrtiffed around these houses so that each is a self-contained strong point with a subterranean ex-It In the Tear for Us garrison.

"Meet Me at the Palace" most comforting thought Is that It Is a salient and that from the north and south as well as tho west Its defenders are under tiro. Tholr losses nre very groat. Evidence recently to hand shows that one division opposing us has been burying from seventy to eighty men daily, shell lira being tho chief cause of denth. The number burled must he considerably less than the total daily fatalities because the larger shells often destroy the bodies of their victims so that there Is no possibility of a burial. Our artillery attacks aro re-inforced by tho frequent use of gas projected into the enemy lines when the wind is favorablo and discharged in the form of gaa shells at all hours of the day or night. Nothing else causes such terror among the Germans as those gas bombardments. Captured documents prove that tho proposal to lessen the number of dug] outs in the hope of preventing the men i in the trenches from being caught in them and forced to surrender when attacked has been adopted by tho loaders of one of the enemy divisions opposite to us. An order has been found providing for a reduction in the number of dugouts from which it would appear that not more than a third of the garrison aro provided with them, the others must face shell lire in tho trenches so that they may he Immediately available to repel an attack. Another precautionary measure for lessening dugout surrenders is tho placing of these shelters woll behind tho front lino trenches.

Therefore general assembly councils of workmen's and soldiers' and peasants' must bo convoked and such assembly will meet within a fortnight hence to discuss the organization which is to replace the cabinet ministers. Meantime all power must bo concentrated In the present government which must act in conformity With the decisions reached at the last general congress.
