THE PROGRESS PF THE WAR The German offensive, commenced yesterday morning by a heavy bom bardment of British and French positions along a 50-milc front, was followed up last night with infantry attacks and British trenches were penetrated at several points to the eztont of the first line, chiefly in the Cambrai sector. Field .Marshal Haig's report today tates, however, that the British are holding the entire line, and that the German losses hare been particularly heavy. There is no evidence that the 'British line has given away to any �reai exiont at any point. CANADA NOW READY FOR DAYLIGHT SAVING. Sir Oeorge Poster has introduced once more his dayllpht saving measure j (("ovriNiiEti noit Pmmt Pa01> revenM ot th� proTlnce and would be used (or admlntstnitive pur- poses. He informed the house .that the SOME ANOMOUIES OF THE TARIFF. Hero is an anomoly: Albe.rta can supply the whole west with coal, but Araerioon coal is ad-tnltted free of duty, and oe a result the Alberta coal mining industry meets the stlffest kind of opposition. Bastern Canadian implement manufacturers cannot supply one-quarter of the demand of the west for farm machinery, yet the Western Canada farmer must pay a heavy tariff on every machine brought in to meet the" demand. A little adjustment of the tariff on a horse-sense basis is needed.

The rest of th^'cbttlj used in flioBe provinces was, *Ainerlcan.- John: "F. Stirling, chieti ii>ine inspector for Aiberta/comment-' Ing on this fact, said h� had learned 1 from Saskatche\^an dealers that "they p^ushed.-the sal^of American coals, as' tiere wafRiarger margin'of profit oh tiem." v The Hamilton Herald^ commenting n'these iaatters, says: If -no American coal were {delivered west of the great lakes, and if a ()uan-tliy wial to that which has been going Xhera'wera diverted to Central Canada, there would be no danger of a coal shortage next winter. It would be a good stroke of policy for the Dominion -Qoyernment, through the fuel-contrpllef, to forbid the deliv-, ry.iof.. Imported coal to ,hny point west of. PortrArthur. Such an .order would be of-benefit fo'Central Canada, and it good for Alberta, and It would not bear harshly upon Saskatchewan and Manitoba-in the long run anyone revonuo w�� stationary In the early years of the war and that it was not until o'nrly in 1917 there had been an approeiahle Increnso but the expenditures had' increased and it was tor that reason ho had to meet a deficit each year. Likely a Deficit They oxpecied to raise by the new tnxatlott ?1,250,000 but It would not be sufficient to provide for, the extra Avar necessities and other require-xuonts. and thoy would likely at the close ot 1918 have a deficit of $201.-000. The now services that .would be required fo meet extra war expenditures, and production would'cost ?212,-666, and in connection with the requirements ot now services ^ he observed that when they had such powerful organieations as the U. P. A. and the Women's Institutes taking part in the affairs of the province with efflc-, lout and up to date Ideas the result , was Increased demands upon the public purse. Sorrowings Uemarklng that of the; $2,500,000 loan sanctioned at the last session between $800,000 and $900,000 remained which they could issue at any time he , stated that their total borrowings by the ^^''""y �' bond issue and savings cc-rti-ficatcn amounted to $2,346,301 and of that they had repaid the bank in January this year $300,000. The average rate of interest _ the government paid was 6 1-2 per cent, and he thought that would compare with the rate obtained by any other province in the- Dominion.  Bonded Debt The bonded debt of the province as at September Slst last was $30,245.-177. After allowing for. sinking fund $550,027.88. burlng the year 191S Mr. Mitchell said the borrowings of the government would not be greatly in creased and If there would be neces sity to barrow It would not be until well on in the summer or perhaps at a later date. In contrast with their financial position was that of other provinces who had already borrowed considerable sums. Then they had no maturing bonds until 1922 so' that any. borrowings they would be obliged to make would be devoted exclusively to new expenditures. Dealing with this part of his subject Mr. Mitchell alluded to the order-in-councU of the Dominion placing an embargo on bond Issues of provincial �governments and said that thiQ government had entered a strong protest at Otta,wa against it. , .Savinos Cerlltlca^ea .The savings ce'rtlfl.patiBS.
