Tho force engaged was a central Ontario battalion. The Gorman line was penetrated to a depth of over !J00 yards along a front of 700 yards. A large number of enemy dugouts, containing many men, which had been constructed on both Hides of a twenty-foot railway embankment stretching between Avion and Moryeourt wore successfully bombarded. In order to reach these dugouts tho attacking force, consisting largely of men who had not hitherto taken part in an assault hud to And their way in tho darkness through groups of wrecked bouses and a tangle of enemy wire cut during the past few days by our artillery, and a brickyard. To add to tho difficulties of tho men a barrage of gas shells was put on by the enemy as they wont over the trench tops and continued as tlioy advanced, which made it necessary for them to wear gas masks during the attack. Under tho conditions prevailing an advance would have boon impossible had tho men not been carefully instructed by scouts as to tho obstacles they would have to encounter and tho means of getting around or over them. Tho colonel of the regiment himself assisted them through the wreck by placing white tape to mark tho practicable paths through tho enemy wire which at this point of tho Oppy-Mery- Olive McCormick Sings at Chautauqua court line Is very wide. Thus aided, the assaulting waves, prnli'itid by an excellent barrago from our mns, had Utile resistance to overcome until they passed the enemy's first, line trench, whero n number of prisoners were taken. Pushing on rapidly, the attack of the force encountered fierce resistance and had to fight their way forward with bomb ami bayonet. When tho embankment was reached the occupants of the dugouts were called on to surrender. Only a few of them did so the remainder preferring to take their chance below. Tho men who made Oils choice had only been in Lens for a day. having come from tho Hussinn trout, and they did not know that the means now used in destroying dugouts is so effective that few occupants escaped. Our men had no time to nrgue the matter or to descend and explore the dugouts from which armed Germans were bo-ginning to swarm out. ltnmhs were thrown into the entrances and explosions speedily followed. Gathering up the wounded raiders our men return ed to their own lines, leaving outposts behind with instructions to fall back if heavily counter-attacked. Tho enemy in force attacked these outposts at dawn and they were withdrawn to a point in the northern pari of Avion from which the raiders set out. Prisoners state that there were many men in the destroyed dugouts and relatively few could have escaped in the short time between tho sounding of the alarm by bells kept at their entrances and their destruction. The enemy casualties must bo up in the hundreds while our own were little more than the number of prisoners taken.

Street S., Lethbridge, July 18th To tho Editor, Lethbridge Herald. Sir,-I have just noticed and read two articles in the "People's Forum" of your paper, which claimed my interest sufficiently to be the causo of this letter. The first appeared on Monday, the 16th, under the simple heading "Smuggling." In part he claims "trade is a good thing." Let me ask him a question, "Does he include smuggling as a trade?" In the first place does tho good man understand tho reason for duty. I think not. It fs up to the man who earns his living in Canada to jit leaBt pat-ronizo Canadian-mado goods. If he purchases them in the States he Is patronizing American labor and in consequence Is charged a duty or protective tariff on Canadian labor and if he is a working man himself, protects him. Canada not so many years ago had practically free trade with tho U. S. which was terminated by the U. S. herself. Now that it would possibly be to the advantage of somo few thoy Wish to throw off the duty or worse, openly advocate smuggling or lawlessness. Ho even makes out that a smuggled tractor would occasion more labor insofar as more harvest hands, business for railroad and express companies, (the latter need smuggled tractors to support them I don't think), more labor' for twine manufacturers. All these to be protected against that "grafting eastern tractor manufacturer, by breaking the law and smuggling in a tractor. I hope he tries it himself and gets caught. I feel "small" for answering such a ridiculous letter at all. The second letter is In tonight's (Wednosday 18th) paper. It was headed conscription of wealth. This is tho first of a good many dozens of such letters that I havo read that come from a man that should have tho say, "a returned boy." I am very much In favor of conscription, both of wealth and men. I am enclosing a small bill that was passed high and low in Edmonton re conscription, as follows: "Down With Conscription. They tell us our Canadian Boys are crying for reinforcements. A FINE BUGABOO! Tho facta are that our Canadian Soldiers are being used to re-inforco English Battalions. Don't be tho fool that our prostitute press expects you to be. They have been bought out for paltry dollars to betray a free Canadian people." These and various others were passed and thrown loose round the streets between 12 p.m. and 2.30 a.m., showing tho kind who are opposing conscription. It is nothing but a purposed tissuo of lies to attempt to mislead people. Ask a returned sold-ior If reinforcements are needed', or those over there. Canadian soldiers are not being used to reinforce English battalions and tho few that have relations and desire to transfer Into English battalions find it exceedingly difficult to transfor. Conscription is unfair as proposed. Tboro's too much exemption and the man with dollars can wiggle round it. In my opinion bachelors from 30 to �10 ought to go first and then all sin-glo young follows from 18 up, with no exemptions whatsoever, except In the case of the physically unfit who ought in such cases ns able to be put In khaki on government work. Why should ono man be forcod or voluntarily givo up a good job to go to France for $1.10 a day, come home maimed on un inadequate pension, while another who has a slightly weak honrt get $3.50 to $5.00 a day on work occasioned by the war with llttlo or no danger? These same men havo been holding down tho latter position while a large number have come back in the former condition. Now tho one who has held down the fat job, kicks at doing his bit either by voluntary or contcrlptiaa and hides behind tho thin veil of "Conscription of Wealth" plea. Make ] the skirker go. When he comes back ho will be in a position to talk on an equal. Beforehand it's not his business. If we could go under these conditions without yelping why do thoy squeal when their turn comes. Conscription of wealth and men Is In force in Britain. Everyone is a returned soldier or one in training, .-aturally everyone being a returned or at least a military serving man the aims of these are soon made law. The returned men here are new, the organization is new. In time and a short time we shall be a force to be counted. If these quitters and backsliders have a yell let them at least show thoy are not as yellow as their actions indicate. I read the resolution of the Lethbridge Trades and Labor Council and must say that it is the most reasonable of such resolutions yet, but I claim that what was good enough for those who have gone voluntarily is good enough also for the conscriptB. If these measures are needed now they were for us. That of course did not affect the "Shy Willies." Immediately, however, they begin to see that they are about to bo made to do what thoy have neither pluck nor intention of doing voluntarily, they raise every kind of obstacle possible. This war is everyone's interest. Not an impersonal sympathy but a vital interest. Few people realize the war or are too narrow-minded to care. Even the States has finally realized the huge, unmentionable necessity of interfering in our favor. Suroly that is a full and sufficient proof tor the most pessimistic nature. I am heartily glad to see Mr. Buchanan's stand on conscription and feel certain that he has gained further Influence than ever before. DICK SELLENS. Broken Coin!" Seldom lias the Universal felt so confident that a serial would be a .smashing success, as In the present instance. Here is the synopsis of the first episode of the serial which starts out with a roar and keeps up a regular inferno of exciting action until the last iiual tremendous climax: Kitty Grey, an American newspaper reporter, leaves her office for lunch. On her way to tho restaurant she sees in an old curiosity shop half of a broken coin, inscribed in Latin. The name "Gretzhoffen" attracts her attention,' and she buys the coin. On her way out of the siiop she drops the papers she is carrying, which are picked up and handed to her by a foreign-looking man, who has been watching the coin before Kitty camo along. AT THE EMPRESS 'Vanity'' is the feature at tho Empress tonight. Robert Armstrong, falsely accused of a murder committed thirty years ago in a western gambling hall, faces the alternative of imprisonment, or paying blackmail. A letter from Tom Mason, formerly a miner, prepares him for a visit, at which time he must make his choice. Armstrong conlidcs in his son, Dick, assuring him that tho murder was committed by Mason, who used trickery to make it seem that ho (Armstrong) was tho culprit. Dick broods over the injustice to his father, and Armstrong cannot conceal his nervousness. Tho visitor comes and makes his demands. Armstrong grapples with him as tho lights are turned olt. Suddenly there is a shot, and when the lights arc turned on again Mason is lying dead on the floor. Fearing the servants will enter, Dick drags the body through a window to the grounds outside, takes Mason's pistol out of bis pocket, fires a shot into the body and places the weapon in the dead man's hand. Dick returns to tho house and a policeman hurries to the scene. her support in tho Lasky-Paramount picture, "The School for Husbands," at Starland tonight and tomorrow, has been brought up in the rural surroundings of the Lambs' Club and lias never been in any city larger than New York or Paris in his life. Consequently on his recent, trip to Tia Juana he fell an easy victim to sharks. Mr. Dean was in front of the betting booth gazing at tho horses on tho board when he hoard a prosperous looking individual directing a jockey to put a two-pound saddle on a certain horse and keep in the lead from the start. By his usual gracious manor Mr. Dean quickly cultivated the acquaintance of the gentleman giving the instructions and after much pleading, learned the name of the horse which was to have the two-pound saddle and knop in the lend, and promptly wagered a large sum at, the prevailing odds. The was detained at the quarter pole and arrived shortly before the start ot the next race. Somo time later, Mr. Dean thoughtfully asked Director George Melford what was the weight of tho lightest saddle used, and was informed it was six or eight pounds. Mr. Dean went out, loaned against a lamp post for some time, then said: "Do you know, I believe those fellows were a couple of touts?" Don't fail to see Chester Couklln, that funny comedian', in "Dodging His Doom," two-reel Mack Sennett-Koystone comedy, on the same program. THE BLUFF "The late General Funston," said a magazine editor, "hated a bluffer. Bluffers, he claimed, always gave themselves away. "He often told a story about a bluffer who applied for a vacancy as tutor to a broker's son. "The broker was an enthusiastic stamp collector, and he thought ho might perhaps put the tutor to work cataloguing his stamps, so he asked the man: '* 'One last question. Are you acquainted with philately?' "The tutor Bmlled. " 'My goodness, yes,' he said. 'I speak it like a native, sir.'
