Enemy Has Failed British Army Headquarters in France, Mar. 22.-The fighting is still continuing, but the first stage of the offensive has passed. The onemy haB failed badly In the execution of his program as is attested by captured documents showing what he planned to do In the early hours of his offensive. Vigorous counter attacks late yesterday restored some of the pooi-tlons which the British had abandoned temporarily. The err.ot British line cannot be made publlo at present. The only reason is that It might furnish the enemy with valuable information. Last night was fairly quiet along the front. This morning the Germans wore bombarding the regriort of Croisclles. There �were indications that they intended to continue their attanka today. The weather is cold and blaak. A heavy mist makea air reconnaissances difficult. This is advantageous to the British as the enemy is deprived of greatly needed aerial observation. The Germans in many section, yesterday attacked in three waves of infantry, followed by shook troops. As a result they suffered very heavy casualties. A heavily masked German artillery battery has been badly bombarded by British gune. Huns Fail on French Front Paris, Mar." 22.-Looal attacks wore made by the Germans at various points ?

A powder factory anil a gas plant are repoFtad to have exploded. The population, according to those advices, is panic stricken and many persons are leaving town and going to Switzerland, especially women and children. The South German press In continuing its campaign against aerial reprisals, but the Berlin government is declared to have shown no disposition to negotiate. Toronto, Mar. 22.-According to G. T. Clarksnn, who presented the affairs of the (lo'iinct Dominion Permanent Loan Company to about four hundred depositors and debenture holders at Osgoodn Hall, suit will bn instituted against the estates of four of tho de-coased directors of the corporation who bold office subsequently to 1905 when the company began to weaken. An effort will be made to collect a sum in excess of $2,000,000. In this way as much as eighty cents on the dollar, after two or three yoars, during which there will be much expensive litigation, may be raised. Referring to T. W. McGarry's position as a director in 1915, the liquidator stated that tho provincial treasurer was treated cruelly. It transpired that he had been shown a statement with a surplus of $500,000 and ho went on the hoard. Later at the annual mooting ho resigned. The explanation of the company's failure as given by Mr. Clarkson was that tho directors in 1808 advanced money on western securities although up to that time the business carried on in second mortgages. Tho liabilities of tho company amount to $2,498,194 and the assets $4,770,000. The latter includes tho book value of the railway mortgages which is placed at $4,389,-000, but which may not bring $2,000,.-000. The estates which it is intended to sue are those of J. R. Stratton, Christian Kloepfer, D. W. Karn and T. P. Coffee. F. M. Holland, general manager of the corporation, was released on bail of $20,000 tonight.

HOPES FILTER WILL GIVE BETTER RESULTS Commissioner Freeman says he hopes that from now on the new filter will give better results. The cor of alum arrived from Toronto on Thursday morning and there is plenty of this ingredient for the coagulent. It will require about COO pounds a day during the period of bad water. Both sodimentation basins are now in use also, so that the water will be allowed to settle for a longer time before being put through tho filters. Howover, in .'lew of the tests made by the sanitary inspector, it would be wiser to boil all water until such time as a definite announcement is made that tho water is no longer polluted.
