THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR Frey The line of battle In the great German offensive now extends from Albert to Mont Dhiier and Noyon. The struggle still continues in its intensity, the British and French holding the' line successfully, though forced to give way at/certain points. The Germans hare extended the offensive In the direction of Arras, but thus far with little success and enormous casualties. The Germans have approached to Within 13 miles ot Amiens, one of their chief objectives, but the line here is being firmly held by the allies. General Foch has taken supreme command of the whole of the allied armies, including the American forces. Inom businessmen "Ral.ui all you can," tut let the buslnoas man be approached tor a little financial help and the first thing he asks for is security in Ihe ratio of about twenty to one. Farmers who have had the benefit of the last three years' good crops have nothing to kick about, and I am tryiug to suggest a thought to you that may prompt an editorial covering the cases of men who havo but lately go no back to the land (not to escape the Military Service Act! with a sincere desire to do their part tor the country at largo. The general idea prevailing is that every farmer has a tat balance At the bank, aud the ones arc overlooknd who sank so deeply in the hole during the bad seasons of HU0 to 1515 that they have been barely able to get out again. Regarding the above, the,Herald Is of the opinion that the writer of the letter can secure seed from the provincial department provided he can show that he is in a position to increase production this year. If we are not mistaken the provincial government has agreed to furnish seed to tanners on patented land, while the Dominion govt, will furnish It to men on unpatented land. We be-i Heve we are right and would suggest J the writer of the tetter and any others | who are in a similar position should get in touch with the department ot agriculture at Edmonton. The Herald believes it can also bespeak the help of the Lethbridge Board ot Trade in whatever action may be necessary to secure seed. It would be criminal if men who are ready and willing to produce were to fail to do so tor lack of a little help in securing the necessary seed grain. (CoKTlKCaD 1*0*1 FWiHt J�A-> THE PRAYER OF THE EASTER SEASON. Yesterday the world commemorated - the death of Christ upon the cross. Tomorrow will be commemorated the Resurrection. The Easter season season again finds the great nations of the world locked in the deadly struggle which has been raging on the battlefields ot Euripe.x Four -successive Easter season* has this been the case. The world will pray tomorrow that before, another Easter-time rolls around the brotherhood ot man which Christ came upon this world to teach will have been established by (b�-defeat of-.the nation.ot,niiiMerprs who appear to know not Christ's teafch-inss. BETTER JAPANESE-AMERICAN UNDERSTANDING. For years it has been part of the Htm propaganda In America to stir j up a bitter feeling against Japan, while in Japan the Hun propagandists succeeded in engendering bitter feel-^ ings against the American. The propagandist however was no more successful than was the German diplomat before the war. The skeleton of his effort to stir up strife between the great nations '� on each side of Pacific has been revealed and plan'has failed. The New York Evening Post re-j cently issued a Japan number and one ; ot the articles therein bearing on the j relation between Japan and America! was written by Senator Lewis of 11-; the the a readjustment.or the line to some places. FOur, divisions wars used by toe Germans aJoag a narrow trsftt be-' special division*. - After a strong bombardment, the enemy advanced In masses, carrying' Urge number* ot maculae' guas. - One report says there '-was ode .machine gun for every twa Infantrywasi.

March 30.-Tha British line held magnificently throughout Friday according to Reuters correspondent at British headquarters,in France. At one point only, say* the correspondent, where the Germans got across the river in force about Cerlsy and so taking (ho troops hi the Proy-ort-Mericourt neighborhood In the rear, havo we fallen back, hut that retirement was gallantly . done. Our men were taken in the rear before they know tt. ..'-*,,  As there were gun* to bo got away both infantry and gunners faced'round and for a white some of our/field artillery were firing with open sights Into the enemy. Then the Infantry charged and succeeded in driving the superior force of the enemy back to the river bank, holding them there until the guns were got away., This *ection of the line then swung back to new positions running by Hamela and Latmott. Amazing Stories O Toronto, March 30.~The Globe ha* this special cable from London: "Wounded men arriving in London tell amazing stories of the fighting. Men in the front trenches west ot Lecatelet on March .21 knowing the date and time ot the enemy's attack which was made exactly at the expected minute: One semi-circular trench contained one hundred machine guns and the enemy in dense masses swarmed to,the right and left all day Thursday and Thursday night, falling in hundreds from the enfiladed machine gnns. Over piles of dead :and wounded men and horses, the enemy continued pushing on, tilling up the gaps. Our men fought on without food or water, orders having, gone out not to touch ratlins owing to tl\e-risk ot poisoning from gas attack. Dawn on Friday disclosed the enemy dead thick on all surrounding ridges.  British Official ! THURSDAY. MARCH SR. W* CAROSTON FAVORS AMALGAMATION OF FAIRS. Four representatives of the Lethbridge amalgamated fair board are, �j in Cardston today talking amalgamation to the fair board and citizens ot that town. :*o that Lethbridge, Ca>tds- , Ion and Magrath and Raymond may all unite in a fair here that will be representative ot the sonth's industry. The Cardston Globe is heartily 1 in favor of the amalgamation,, and in Its last issue says: The opportunity of amalgamating with Lethbridge in their fair this som- ; mer is one that Cardston cannot afford to pass up. The advantages of- � tered in the way of advertising and '� the benefits to be derived therefrom cannot be estimated. 'We can still " have our race-meets and the live stock aalea and thus meet our financial oh- , ligations. Lethbridge is the natural 'fair-town" of Southern Alberta, as Calgary is for Central Alberta, and Edmonton tor/ Northern Alberta. r Lethbridge has. also the finest grounds .in the province,-and their fair no ^ doubt, with proper support from the  neighboring towns, would soon become as /Important to Southern Alberta as .the Brandon - fair Is to Mani-toba, or the Toronto fair is,to.Ontario. :To bring this to pa�s, co-operation is vTflftnired, and thus, it behooves'.Cards-ton to fair id line with' Raymond and Magrath and the other towns and give the necessary support. Our local fair has not always been a success, and last year It was amply .-, .demonstrated that it was races .and' attractions the people want and not the viewing of exhibits. We do not know what the Lethbridge Fair board has to offer, but we trust that they. . will be given a splendid hearing, and ;- that what is decided on .will be in the -heat interests of Cardston.and district. ARE THERE-OTHERS   ; ' JNTHJS POSITION? The following, letter has been wrlten-to the Herald/by a man, who, for ob-vlous reasons-does not care to have us use his name. 'As there may be others in a like position, we publish the letter in the hope that something may be done to secure the services of such men in the way of production:^, Your editorial nnder the caption of "The Solemn Duty of the Canadian ' Farmer," is a very timely one but I hep.to suggest that you permit a few -Starlights urn the question. - " " It is undoubtedly a farmer's duty to get in all the crop he can, but dd you know- that there Is an immense , number of,men in.thla southern part , of'tjio-province'who have land, horses/ implements and,; equipment.-and yet are;Bhort;-pf�feed?and' seed?'

Wa hear from the.press and prom- linois in which he said: v | The Japanese situation is a delicate i one. It Is to be handled with regard | to the feeling3 of all and with a pro- j per caution measured by our sur-' rounding circumstances. It is known that before the visit ot the lahll delegation, followed by the' commercial delegation from Japan, there was a misunderstanding between this country and Japan as misleading against naiaavit. was in this country misleading against Japan. .These delegations 'made it clear that � Japan - seeks nothing from the United States which we* cannot grant, and nothing which is inconsistent with the policy .that protects all of our people in every part ot the United States from any form of invasion by people or Intrusion by country. The commercial relations between- the countries - have been enlarged, a better understanding exists between .the people as to shipments and shipping; and a correct-appreciation as to the relationship between the "countries touching immigration. The limits of Japan's requests are well, known, and our people comply with them under the.gentlemen's  agreement. This entitles a certain limited number ot Japanese to come to us, many ot whom come only to learn of our Institutions and methods ot government, that they may emulate such as are profitable to' their people. ? We understand from the information gathered that there is no desire on the part of Japan-much leas intent-to possess any portion of our island territories or to encroach upon any of" our business . ot territorial rights. This, has imbued the Pacific coast people with a new confidence, and 1 am sure with'a new feeling that there are no antagonisms between the countries; also that all past differences can be reconciled now by. any convention of "representative Japanese and� representative Americans; that hereafter all matters over which there has been "confusion1 or dispute can be placed on the table before mutual delegates and in a peaceful manner .disposed ot to the mutual advantage of both countries. t The present era marks a progress and happy harmony between the United States and Japan. This v^ill continue so long as the United States reposes confidence in the honor ot the Japanese representatives, and Japan trusts the peaceful and democratic objects of .-America. '�.:/. .] After all, how can a merged' government object to a merged bank, asks the Financial Times. London. Mar. 30. - The official statement follows: "North of the Sornme only local actions have taken place. Soiith ot the Sorame the enemy's attacks yesterday at Deniutn and at Mezieres succeeded in pressing back our troops from the latter village. We secured a number of prisoners in our counter attacks. At Demuin' all the enemy's attempts' to capture the village broke down after sharp fighting which lasted throughout the afternoon. "During the past week, our cavalry have fought with great'gallantry both mounted and dismounted and repulsed''the enemy, inflicting heavy losses' on him in numeroua engagements." u j (From Our Own Correspondent) Champion, March 34.-The council meeting was held in the town halt on Tuesday, March JgjTho question of a sanitary Inspector who would he 'responsible for the cleaning up of the back yards, or any other yard* that might, tend to breed or fostor1 dlteato germs of any- kind was discussed. - F, C.
