THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR. The Americans performed another brilliant feat on the Aisne from in France yesterday and this morning when they captured a villase at the point of the bayonet and took German prisoners, inflicting heavy losses on the opposing forces. The Americans and French co-operating, gained considerable ground in the attack, and were able to inflict a rather severe rlefeat on the Germans. The ntghl was qalot along the British front according to th\ official Statement. LETHBRIDGE NOT GETTING SQUARE DEAL. Who sends out the weather report from Lethbridge? � On Wednesday this district was; n'isited by half an inch of rain. On Thursday morning when the Wednesday weather report came over the wires, the temperatures for IvCth-bridge were given, but there was a blank in the precipitation column. Many people throughout the West are anxious to know crop and weather conditions in Southern Alberta and tdey look to the Lethbridge weather report to keep iliein posted. Our failure to do so as in the case of Wednesday, Is not helping our district. W'e have noticed similar occurrences several times In the past, and we would auggeetthat the Board of Trade take ateps to have the Lethbridge weather properly represented hereafter. OPINION BASED ON AVAILABLE FACTS. On a couple of occasions recently His'Worahlp the Mayor has Intimated . that The Herald Is "not sufficiently iDlormed to Intelligently criticize" certain municipal matterar Tihe same observation has been made by him with reference to our editorial setting forth: that the time for bluffing about the collection of tax arrears has ceased. \ The Herald, In common with the remainder of the ratepayers, can only take the facts as presented at the city hall. In connection with the tax .ar- -fears, we have not the 1D17 auditors' Report as yet, and can only take the general facts, which are that at the beginning of the year there were over ,1600,000 In taxes outstanding. This M considerably more than one year's levy. We know that the mayor in his 'preface to the auditors' reports ol lOlu and 1916 pointed out strongly A'hat the city could do to enforce tax iiayment; We know that up to the �"pregei^t time, two or three years, later,'nothing had. been done up till the decision to hold the tax sale, the postponement of which Is now under � discussion. � Considering these circumstances. It ahould hardly be Necessary for us to Jkoep chartered accountants and muni-cipalexpertg.at the city hall in order to Jorm; a basis for the. opinion that up to- date the'collection of tax ar-reatit ha? mojvtly heen a � matter of biuft...That Opinion'may'ftot square with, the opinion in the city hall quarters, liut lhat'does not make U a crlm- � tnal'of fence for us to hold an'oplnlbn �ven though that opinion may he fwrong. We have not yet reached the 'stage of dealing in ready-made opln-jow on municpal matters. great industrial ftnd commercial poo-ple and in our Hbllity towage an ex-jiorV war against that country. Tho suggestion has been made nioro than onco, and In htgHly responsible quarters, that It Germany should continue to carry on htjr present brutal war ngainat the world, tho United States should confront her with tho throat of an economic war after she has bcoti defeated on tho field of battle. Tho subject has been given groat prominence .and has received the very highest authority and sanction in recent actldb by tho Chnmbor oC Commerco of tlio United States of America, whose headquarters are in Washington. The Chamber of Com-inerco, Boston, Mase., presented for tho consldoratloh of the National Chamber through roforondum vote of its member^, tho paramount question of preventing excessive rearmament after the- war, through dlscriminntioa against Germany in efport trade, if this should bo considered to be necessary for self-defence. This was presented In the following ' preambles and resolution. �WHBHBAS, Tho size of Germany's present armament and her militaristic attitude have been due to tho fact that her government is a military autocracy, not responsible to the German people; and, WHEREAS. The size of the German armament after tho ivar will bo tl\e measure of the greatness of the armament forced on all nations; and WHEHBAS. Careful analysis of economic conditions shows that the size of Germany's future armament will fundamentally depend on her after-war receipts of raw materials and profit from her foreign trade; and. . WHEREAS. In our opinion Wie American people for the purpose of preventing an excessive armament will assuredly enter an economic combination against Germany, If governmental conditions in Germany make It necessary for self-defence; nntl, WHEREAS. We believe the American people will not join in discrimination against German goods after the war if'the danger of excessive armament has been removed by the fact that the German Government has In reality become a responsible instrument, controlled by the German people: therefore, be it RESOLVED, That the Chamber of Commerce of the United States of America earnestly calls tlie attention of the business men of Germany to thesQ conditions and urges them also to study this situation and to cooperate, to,the end that a disastrous ecoi^oipiq; war- may be averted and that a lasting peace may be made more tertaln. The vote throughout the country closed on February 26th, 1918, when ,535 organizations, situated in 46 states and in the Distrct of Columbia and in Alaska, had filed ballots. The count showed that 1,201 were in favor and only 151 against the resolution. The Chamber of Commerce of the United States of America is commit-tod to the question it more than one-third of the voting strength of the Chamber is recorded and if more thsu two-thirds of the votes thus" cast, representing more than 20 states, are in favor of tho proposition. Since this proportion was exceeded and it was found that 1,204 votes were in favor of an economic war against 151 opposed, the Chamber of Commerce of the United States qf America is com-T^ltted to the endorsement of this momentous resolution.
