The allies h.ive cliecked the latest German diivo everywhere, accordine V) todays dispatolics. The tremendous offensive developed along the Aisne by the Germans, which was re-Uy a continuation of their .March offensive in Flanders, has been a fail-are, so far a."; really vit.i! gains are con-serned. Blocked as lie was at Verduu in 191(1 the crown prince has used his thousands of men in vain, hae slaughtered division after division without gaining anything that can be much of military value to him. The fiercest fighting has been In the vicinity of Solssous where the allies had the advantage � of terrain, but where the Germans developed a tremendous drive. The extension of the submarine war-tare to the American coast has caused greatest excitement on the Atlantic seaboard, but was nothing more than was expected. Seeing their attempts ending in failure in France, the next step of the Germans was to stop the flow of American soldiers at its source, it possible. Nine vessels at least have been sunk oft the .-Vtlantic coast, but thus far no transports have become victims. THE LETHURiME DAn.Y HERALb lies can go on greatly reduced rntions i tor a few months or a year or two ! years, If tioed be. but we cannot do without plenty of men on the battle , front-Uow many we need the Oer- | man successes In their latest push ' will show.

If arrangements suggested Monday are carried out the election to fill the vacancy caused by the resignation ot A. M. Grace, Commissioner ot Public Works, will take place two weeks from to-day. That does not allow very much time for the citizens to decide who shall be elected, but under the circumstances, it is probably long enough. We will not know until nomination day, a week hence, who will present themselves tor the choice of the people. Great as has been the effort in some quarters to make it appear so. The Herald has no axe to grind in the administration ot the city. All wo ask is that the problems before the city be given the fullest publicity and that the decisions be made with the full understanding of the ratepayers. That Is the only basis on which commission government can hope to retain the confidence ot the people and be a success. The man to be elected to fill the vacancy should therefore be-a man who will continually strive to this end. Whether the ratepayers will demand that the next incumbent of the position must be technically trained in the work ot his department remains to be seen. It is one phase of the coming campaign which must be carefully considered. There are still anxious times ahead of' tho city before it Is ciear of its difficulties and business acumen will be needed as well as engineering ability. If the ratepayers are wise there will be a very cool and deliberate consideration of the men offering thcpi-selves for election. It is a serious business. by the shipping available, there can-1 not be that urgent need for Canadian  reluforcemonts which is pleaded by burgcon-in-Chiet the Government in support of its recent decision. T.ambcrt, of tho .\mericaii Rod Cross, favors allowing female relatives of United States sol-diers to visit wounded men in the This argument, when stripped of its , war zone. verbiage and' reduced to its naked I _ qualities, is nothing but the old plea : Five hundred men of the Central thai Canada has done enough and is ' Ontario Regiment Depot at Brantford entitled to sit blick and watch the ; wore presented with comforts' parcels Cnited States finish the war.

It had very little weight there and etil! less with the electors by the Women's Patriotic League ot that city. Geo.

But if the other bel-llgerenta begin to think that they can afford to relax their efforts and let Uncle Sam do it, this war will end in the triumph of Prussia ..\nd all of theee nations, with respect to the effect ot its action upon United States public opinion, Canada can least afford to assume at this critical hour the role of a slacker. Every nation must put forth its maximum effort for the remainder of the war. Canada has obligated herself to supply 100,000 men this year.

That part of the press of Canada still hostile to Union Government keeps on reiterating its criticism ot the Government for its drastic action In calling up men of 20, 21 and T2, into service, whether farmers or not, >and points to the grave poBBlbilily ot a food scarcity among the Allied nations. Surely the'present phase ot the German offensive on the western front with Parle as tho objective will servo lo show them the error of their reasoning. Tho Germans have tho men * iOT their- most determined pushes, and they are sponding them ruthlessly. The Allies can combat those great pushes only with men.

NCREASEALL OF SOPERAN, PASTORS Kdmonton, AUa.. June 2.-The lay-^ men's association meeting in connec-1 tion with the Alberta Methodist Conference, at its session Saturday night, unanlnjoualy adopted a' resolution memorializing the general conference to launch a scheme to provide that ministers superannuated be paid a retiring allowance of $25 Instead of |12, as at present; and also to provide for the retirement (with proper superannuation) of all the general conference officers at the age ot 70 years. 'Sunday at the McDougall churcli. throe candidates tor the ministry were ordained. .N'orman F. Priestly, B. A., who has just returned from overseas; William V. Smith and John Nightingale. Methodist pulpits all over the city wore occupied by visiting ministers lo-day. ^AN AD A faces the gravest crisis in her history. Four years of war have taken from the Dominion a heavy toll in talent and labor, yet despite the shortage of man power, our Allies still depend on Canada to maintain her own* fighting forces at full strength and to increase her exports of food and war materials, so vital to them, and to the successful prosecution of the war. Every ounce by which Canada can increase her food production and every ounce Canada can save in her food consumption is needed for export to the Allies, ^asa* Should the war continue for another year, food cards and a rationing system may have to be instituted. It is the duty of Canada to be prepared for whatever situation circumstances may force upon her. It is quite probable that before the war is won our Government may have to place restrictions upon the occupations in which men and women may engage. In such an event the Government wishes to be in a position to render all possible assistance in keeping our population usefully and profitably employed. Registration Day, June 22n(l These conditions point to the necejsity of Canada knowing the exact capabilities of her men and women at home. .All persons residing in Canada, male or female; ' British or alien of 16 years and over, will be required to register on June 22nd and truthfully answer the questions set forth upon the registration card. It is not the Government's intention to conscript labour in any form, but to assist in directing it wisely, so that every. available unit of human energy may be utilized to the best advantage. , The information procured through registration will be used-as an aid to the Military Authorities in procuring the men necessary to maintain "Canada's First Line of Defence"-to mobilize all units of available labor in the Dominion and direct them from less essential to morp essential occupations-to establish and intelligently administer a system of food rationing should that become necessary.

A discussion as to raising the tax ou bill boards was settled by a request that the mayor write the city of Medicine Hat for their scheme. It was felt that tho billboard Company should pay at least ?100 taxes. Tho city of .Medicine Hat charges according to tho space used by the posting company. Some furtlier discussion as to the advisability of installing meters tor all water services took place. Commissioner grace believes It will take about $40,000 to inetal meters for all water services. Tho council hellpves the cost of meters could be secured by a monthly charge of 2'> cents to each customer. It is probable that an o.vhaustive report of the whole ; nter scheme will bo brought down shortly. S.J.
