The allies hare distinctly the ad-rantage of the latest reports from the western front, and the situation prows brighter for the gallant troops defending the allied line as the hours jo by. Yesterday the British were ,&ble to counter-attack to the south of �he Somme and recapture several villages with prisoners and guns. This It the most encouraging news that tas come through since the German iffenslve was opened. The Germans aare been able to capture Albert, a �olnt over 20 miles from their former line, but fine British line here is holding firm, and nowhere has there keen a break in the long front. The recapture of Odessa by the Bolshevik! is an indication of increased activity against the Germans in contbera Russia, THE RESIGNATION OF MAGISTRATE ELTON The decision of P. 15.

Lethbrids* or six vo.irs in; the position n-ili bo hoar: with gen- ; era! ntcrrt. for during his tenure of i office he has been to a : degreo and !u* given oxooilent satisfaction. His own personal practice in i his profession was never allowed to ; interfere with !.:* dispensation of Jus- � tict? in the police courts of the city. His fairaimledness is evidenced by | the fact that those of his decisions which have h,een reversed could be counted on the fingers of one hand. He has been an excellent public servant. In making an appointment to fill tit? vacancy the government, for the reasons of Mr. Elton's resignation, will likely find it hard to induce a lawyer to take up the work. U however a layman can be found with a knowledge of the law sufficiently intimate to dispense justice in a proper manner, the difficulty will be solved. We believe we have such men in Leth-bridge. and it is hoped the government's choice falls to one of them.

The Herald has found that fanners lire satisfied th�y^.are getting a good .-price for their wheat and other produce, but they strongly object to any fl.W.W. agitation which only results in an unsettled condition of farm labor just at a time when the greatest concentrated efforts are needed to meet the call ior increased food production. "As a role the farm hands understand jthe situation also, and are willing to do their share but there are a few agitators going about stirring up the men to demand higher wages and shorter hours.

"Ton for ton" is the demand ot the New York Times in answer to the German submarine campaign. And it is supported by "The Navy," the official organ of the Navy League of the British Empire. "The Navy" quotes the following from the Times as setting forth what the allied aim: "The Allies in general, and the American people in particular, should never lose sight of the fact that the ruthless campaign waged by Germany against all shipping, whether belligerent or neutral, has two very distinct and dlfferest objects in view, one military, the other sordidly commercial. The first is to prevent the shipment across the Atlantic of troops, supplies and munitions. It is the barbarous method.s by which this purpose is sought to be achieved, rather than the purpose itself, that all civilization resents. "Germany's second object Is so Germany's progress as a trading I country after the war of 1870 and : during the following years threatened the interests of Ilritlsh trade circles, , but the growing interchange of merchandise with Germany, had allowed ! the desire to mature to preserve good relations with Great Britain's best ' client and business friend and this gradually suppressed all other thoughts and motives. ; In commercial circles the prince � says he found the greatest good will .......^......,.,..., . and the desire for further economic' Co 'for j'3'3^ damage3i for alleged In-! interests in common.
