Jaw, July 20.-Only ono strike breaker presanted hlmselt for work this morning. PostmasteV Smith stated that he had been author-ezed to pay etrlko breakers a day. The Peremptory notice by the government expired at eight o'clock this morning but not a single striker returned. There is almost certain to be a general walkout following trade and labor council meetings tonight as feol-lug is high among labor men over the employment ot strike breakers. Ono local firm at least, and it was stated others will do the same, sent aa omiiloyo to the post office thla morning to sort out its own mall. Are Mystified. Ottawa, July 2U.-The ministers and officials appear to be considerably mystltlod by tho refusal ot the western postmen to accept the terms of the agreement arrived at on Wednesday last. They cannot understand why the arrangement should not be aa acoept.ible to tho western as to the eastern letter earriors, all of whom have gone back to work. The action ot tho eastern man thoy regard aa proof that tho western letter carriers have no reasonable ground for rofua-lag to return to work and bo repro-Bontod at tho conference which the siib-comniittee ot tho cabinet will call. It is statpd bore that there is no truth in the report that in order to avoid worso congestion in mall at city post offices, country post masters have been ordered not to accept mall for places whero postman aro on stHKo. No such order has been lasue^ here, Thern was no further anuouncenient subsequent to tlie meeting of U)o cabinet cbuncll, but It is learned that PRUSSIANS supfered. With the French Army In France, July 29,-The Americans at Roncheres lustained and defeated a strong attack by a Guards division. The chosen Prussian troops were stopped everywhere, suffering enormous losses. The eastern wing of the front was comparatively quiet today except for artillery fire. During the nlflht and this morning the Germans launched thousands of shells into the valleys of the Marne and the Ardre, A STONE wall. London, July 29.-The Americans met Germany's finest regl-mentq In battle south of the Sergy last night where the enemy, threw in the whole fourth division of Prussian Guards In a desperate counter attac( Guards, the Teutons today settled down to the hardest resistance tlioy have yet displayed against the American forces north ot the River Ouroq. Although heavily hammered, tho Americana replied in kind along the river and tho fighting shifted back and forth through Sergy, three miles southeast of Fero-Ku-Tardenols. Up to midday the Clormims have been unable to force a re-crosslne ot tho Ourcq. Retreat Continues. Paris, July 29.-Under the Irresistible pressure of tho allied troops the enemy's retreat continued yesterday, aocprd'lng to the Havaa correepondent at the front. The average advance of the allies during tlio day waa from throe to five kilometres.

PER- Germans made great efforts to hold up the army under General De Gour-ette, blowing up bridges and foot bridges leading to Fere-En-Tardonois and Is contending for every foot of territory. The enemy's stubbornness was useless and tlie allies entered the town by the west and south and are still holding their positions. Farther toward U4olms, t^he alliee continued to advance toward Vllle-En-Tardenols, into which their vanguards now have probably penetrated. Another Appeal London, July 29.-Herbert M. Asqulth, former prime minister, speaking in the house of commons this evening, made an appeal to the government in the Interests of the country the empire and the entente allies to try again, even at the eleventh hour, to find a settlement of the Irish question. PMPRESC IjtonightJ Mystery and Beauty Superbly Blended 3^trova ih ftEMPERED STEEL"! story by. George Middleton, author of "Polly with a Past." Directed by Ralph I nee. Also a Screamingly Funny L-KO Komedy. AT THE EMPRESS Madame Petrova'has been fortunate in securing a story so.well suited to her personality as "Tempered Steel," in which she will come^ to the Empress theatre today and tomorrow tor the fourth time this year, under the auspices of the First National Exhibitors' Circuit. George Middleton, a young playwright, famous' tor "Polly With a Past" and other Broadway successes, wrote the photoplay especially tor Madame Petrova, having been a close student of hgr art since her debut on the logUlifiate stage in this country about four years ago, AT STARLAND Glorious Mae Marsh glorifies any play in which she appears. She oomes to Starland today in her newest Oold- wyn photodrama. "The Glorious Adventure," and all her unique individuality and her remarkable histrionic ablMty wilt be coupled with a play ot originality and power. "The little star has never been so fartunate in her choice of a character as in "The Glorious Adventure.". She la precisely the sort of girl she depicts with surpassing skill. In previous Ooldwyn productlbns there have been flashes of this doubly adorablb Mae Marah, but only flashes. As Carey VVothersbee, the girl who sought romance on the open road, she is all Mae Marah, all the girl who plays on one's heartstrings like .the wind in the wiUowa. She does not suggest an actress trained to go through the emotions of the part she is playing, but a real girl such as ayeryone knows. Mae Marsh's art comes perilously near defying analysis, so lucid is it and so close to the heait o{ Ufa.
