TRAMPIEOTO DEATH Canadian Army Headquarters, Mar. 10.-(By tke Canadian Overseas Correspondent).-Since tliC'last .big raid by the Canadians a tew more prisoners have fallen into our hands. A ho.stllo party ct -slx; which ^attempted to raid one of .our posts south ot Lans^yesterday mornlng.was drivan off with machine gun tire, leaving one wounded j)rl�oner. While, the enemy waa failing In his raid, a patrol of one officer and a score of other ranks, of an eastern Ontario battalion,, encountered a hostile scouting party, ft (|rove It back in disorder toward ihe'OCr-mau lines and captured one 'prisoner. The enemy is resorting, to the. use, of gas shells. Yesterday; morning he opened a concentrated gas bombardmOnt against our lines west and soutlt of Merlcourt, In ti\e bombar4mentjvhlih lasted two 'hours. It Is estlmateathat he fired about two thousand rounds ot gas shells con8lsting,"of all .calibres with, a percentage .o^ shriapnei also. At-the same time, lie carried, but',-a light gas bombardment on e|te ^t-Plerre, and last night', he .again put down on our trenches lit .the iiaiie locality a harassing fireiot gas shells. The history of doings atj.the^ front recently has been one of^ slowly in-cieaslng activity. WlthVfltie "spring weather thore has been constant fighting In the air in whictt.'thc British machines have gained %n adkiiowledfied superiority. No fewer than 18 enemy machines have been brought dowii' In one day. As tlie enemy is. inferior in the air, so tho wlnterTecbrd of trinch raiding finds the balance ^strongly in fa-vor ot Canada and,oiirg'uhs'domlnate the enemy. \ i' RECONSTRUCT SPANl'&H CABI'NKT Lisbon, March 11.-A of the present cabinet has become necessary in the face ot.Uie bitter on-: posittcAt of the polttlcalenemtea in tlie distant. .On his way back ly? met an I forthcoming election. pr,,,.Sldonlo autoraobJ^e.'ttiid tho hprse which heiPaes will retain the premiorshlp and was riding took frlKht.

Both these'attack.-? ware but apologies for what the Germans had originally planned. They had intended to make a pretentious assault on th* northern sector south ot tho HoutboMt I forest on February JOtU to pinch oft the British salient Just aoutheast of th* wood and gain a number ot important positionii. This became known to the British, however, thrbugli a deserter and they burled the Houtbsolst front ^ under such an avalanehe ot shells that the enemy was forced to ahaiidoB'hi.t scheme. The Oermaaa decided, n6T*r-.tlicless to make a smaller attack Ffl- , day morning, which gained them sis ' posts temporarily. Th* fmal result was,, that they were driven out with severe losses and also forced to abandon aoma of their own forward positions.
