YHE PROGRESS OF THE WAR The Immense superiority of the al-liei In the air is demostrated by thie �tatemeht made in England that the ftlUes have conducted 255 air flights Into German territory In leas than a year past, and 35 raids in which great damage has been done to German military establishments. The activity on the various war fronts is gaining in intensity, and any day may see the commencement of the xpected spring movement. The Germans are said to be now within a few hours' march of Petro-grad, the capital of Russia; "V".. - _.....----- . bloi-J{, creating an are built and maintained on the credit and over tho' top of tho P. -Burns of the eohool district, thus providing bulltllnE, presented a problem odncatlona] tacllitips, so may rural -hos-pItAls bo buUt and maiatatncNO ^FfVIE" HOSPITAL* -i,i|M GOVERNMENT PLAN. annual banquet >.the fan ahduldjirofftl.hospltjpls be free.

Tho Mounted Police had been asked by Chief Hardy to holp In'.prjgg guarding the building and Hooping the' crowd back to prevent disaster in case any.-of  the walls sUouW. fallj; s^"* erytbing was free in caae of anyjprou-ble in this" regard. :' - Gotten Under Control ; By 10.10 the flame*,, .while-, still burning fiercely within the TUlns. were beginning to show that tha firemen had gotten the upper; handxand nothing was feared fo.- the adjacent blocks. At 10.30 the blaze was under full control and the firemen were busy reducing it to the smallest possible proportions. The crowd, �i^hlcb hattnumber-Ijed well over 2000 about ten o'clock ' began to stream away, secure in the belief that the blaze.had spent Itself and had done Its worst.' ' The fire was the most spectacular witnessed in Lethbrtdge since the morning the i Balmoral Hotel burned do-ira on 5th' St. In January of 1911. Outside the gutting of- the Shepard block of W. R. Hull early In 1817, it was the most disastrous lire since that time. It was the flra^jlre in the history ot Lethbridgci since It gained its city status that has been fought during one of the trying chlnbok winds and amply evidenced' the fact that such gales increase three-fold the work of the firemen in such an evept. Did Not Rieeoyer Re^orde- C. B. Bowman, Joint owner of the building with Capt: L, M. Johnstone, who i^ with the ovefs^as. fprces, told the Herald during the fire that he was seated in his easy ohair after dinner reading, when a telephone call lufarm-ed him of the fire. He flidr'not-thlnk it amounted to mucb'un.tli he reached the corner by the Baijtlst.-cburqli. The volume of amoko then convinced him of Its intensity, and by the tl'nje he reached the scene of th^ blaze he waa unable to make his way up the stairs to recover his records. "I could not tell, you anything definite about the amount ot insurance for all my records were lost.'.' This applies not only to his own insuraitc.e on the building Itself but on mtist of th6 property of the lessees. Jt'i ' Mr. Bowman "beU^-s-aaiChat the walls of the building are'Btlil "good and that it will bb possible tor'repalr the Interior at a cost of about $25i000' even at the present high price of building material. Definite plan^, l^pwever, 'VVlU hav� to wait for an adjustment of the Insurance, which is made doubly hard byMhe los� Of all, the-records. Luckily the vault at the .rear of the building which had been^flireoted when Johnstone and Ritchie seciired offices in the block escaped with little damage, aad outside the lBi,� of the law library and such racoroa'aa may have been In the office at the ilme'of the fire, their loss Is not Imparikhlel The present bu^loes*, pjrofparlty In the city, however, makai t^a blow a hard one to all tha (Inui .'w^o had quarters in the blook,.�qA li.WlU he a hard loss to "overcome under the existing conditions. : Fins Brigade Pralifd Chief Hardy was complimented on every turn on the pxoellent ^prk of his brigade in the face of adyarie''oondlt'1 Ions.

Jphn Dlllon,v who succeeded John Redmond as loader of the Irish Nationalists, replying to congratulatory addro.ssos said his first task would bo to toll England before tho world that tho statesmen must cease to talk of a league of nations or protend to carry on this war In defense of small nationalities unless she -first sets her own house In order and sets free a nation that had for seven hundred years groaned under her mlsgovernment.
