They are being opposed by British and French troops. Uist night the British left flanli was forced back eome-what and a crossing ot the Aisne effected by t!ie Germans. The fighting Is oC the severest nature, and the Krench and British are putting up a most valiant defence. Tho Germans have large forces concentrated at this point. Yesterday the l-Vendi repulsed attacks made iu force. Hiiil inflicted heavy losses on tlic Germans. The Americans, whose line.s were penetrated by a Gorman raid, repulsed tlic raiders in a i'ounlcr alliiclv and entered tb� enemy trendies. many of tho tragic falls of airmen, I particularly at aviation camps In the United States, have appeared as mysteries to tho seneral public. Whether they have been as puzzling to the doctors and other experts ot the flying service wo cannot say, but tho obser-vatloua of a British surgeon, A.E. Pantor, who writes lu the Journal of the Royal Naval MedicnJ Servlcp, Indicate that the peculiar tragedies are not confined to America. The obvious suggestion, generally accepted In America, that loss of consciousness by tho pilot is the Immediate cause of many falls. Is also accepted by Dr. Panter. In some coses, after coBselousness departs, the aviator makes a 8ubcon8Clous"^ffort to TF -^PICKED UP IN'* PASSING TtiS SUSY MAM Uoyal Society ot Canada opened at Ottawa, 65 fellows of the society registering.

The proposal that the controversy between Mayor Hardie and former Chief Skelton shall be settled by payment ot $2,000 to Capt. Skelton in lieu ot his relinquishing his claim for reinstatement is one that will receive scant favor with the ratepayers. Chief Skelton had every moral right to his old position and the Great War Veterans supported him in bis claim. Mayor Hardie set himself to maintain a status quo in the amalgamated police-fire department, and he re-tuged to consider Capt. Skelton's reinstatement. ' We venture to state that 90 per cent, ot the ratepayers were In favor of doing the fair thing by the former chief, but Mayor Hardie reached a point where he threatened to resign rather than reinstate Skelton. Considering all the circumstances of the case there can be only one conclusion-that the $2,000 offer to Capt. Skelton is the price the ratepayers of this city win pay to retain Mayor Hardie in his job at the city ball by getting rid ot Capt. Skelton. The price is steep considering the fact that Skelton wae ready to go back to his. old job which had been promised hlnwwhen he enlisted, at a moment's notice. his machine and landed safely, but was found to be 111. Lack of oxygen, the cause lO which ail sudden prostrations of airmen wore once attributed, is no longer found guilty of itself alone. Among flyers whose patrol duty .took them as high as 17,000 feet. Surgeon Panter found few symptoms attributable to lack of oxygen, and he believes that tho body finds factors which compensate, usually, for the decrease in atmospheric pressure. The quality of tho breathed air deteriorates, but tho quantity t.iken in is larger. What Dr. Pautor make.? most ot- and our own aviation siirgeons are probably observing the same thing-Is the fact that in u^ost cases flyere who wero overcome on high, and lived to tell of it, admitted that they had been feeling out ot sorts before they went up. The slightest disability becomes, in the clouds, a distressing ailment. A comnvon cold will turn into suffocation, perhaps with nose bleed. An in-digeetion scarcely noticed on earth becomes seasickness, two or three miles up. it may be that the lamentably large number of deaths in our aviation camps ivlll bo reduced by a closer watching ot the general health ot the flying men. All enthusiasts, they may be too keen to fly when only a minor malady afflicts them. Yet it is evident from the observations of the British surgeon that a trivial illness, transported aloft, is likely to become overwhelming. Two thousand or quit". "The peepul be damned." The mayor made the mistake ot not feeling the pulse ot the people. There was no mandate from the ratepayers to spend that two thousand. Von Ilindenburg has started his third and last drive It .Monday's dispatches indicate anything. He's due to fall. - - We suppose Capt. Skelton consider, ed himself between the devil and the deep blue sea, and two thousand In the band looked like easy mo'ney. No one blames him much for that, but he would have made no mistake In leaving his case in the people's hands.

WAR's Waste IS TREiMENDOUS. The tremendous waste of this world war; as compared with wars ot the pasf, Is indicated by a report from Switzerland: In artillery preliminary firing before the tremendous assault on tho British front, .March 21, German batteries fired nearly three times as niany sheila In three hours as the German artillery tired in the entire Franco-Prussian war ot 1870. A Hun officer says more than 1,500,000 shells were used in the three hours. That iniians more than 8,300 a minute on the 50-mlle front or 160 a minute per m^l^. iivon that is small compared vUli another incident, when the boche fired eight shells a second at an allied� force for several hours on a aUqrl front. In all the B^anco-Prus-lan war, only 650,000 shells were flrad, and that was considered some wtr; German super-efflcJency in the pro^asaes of throwing away the pro-4uvU of capital and labor is unques-. tlqned.
