The German ottcnsive. fncrcasing in intousity along the Aisn^ has now-enveloped Solssons and' is threat-Bning Rhelms. A largo number of prisoners have been taken but the alltee are now rushing up reserves and hope to have the German rush topped within a day or two. The situation appears viore graxe this morning, but confidence is expressed that the allied line will not break, even though, because ot the natural defence advantages of this sector, it has been thlnl.� held by the allies. POLICE EFFICIENCY-DO WE PAY FOR IT? While it was evidenced at the Board of Trade meeting the other night that some were wholly satisfied with '.bff settlement of the Skelton case, others preferring to reserve judgment though giving the city authorities tlie benefit of the doubt since_ the controversy had apparently beea Irrevocably settled, nevertheless tbere was grave doubt in the nitnds of the majority as to whether the efficiency of the police^ department was all that it should be. That Is a nfct-ter which the citizens havfe Jn no wise aettled in their own minds, Cdt it is yery evident that In many quarters diasaU^actlon exists. And dissatisfaction can exist witU-^ out casting aspersion \0n: Chief Hardyi! . and the members of his staff.. It is wholly a question of wkether" we bare not been too penurious during the past couple of years In ^rovidins a police force that is capable of properly policing the city. As a matter of fact, in 1917, as the annual report ot the chief ot police showed, the set cost of policing the city was very lltUe more than $1,200. The gross cost, ve believe, was in the neighborhood -of |5,S00 and the income 'from tinea, . ftc., -wae around |4,S90, leaving about 11,200 or thereabouts to be raised by / direct taxation. Take that figure and: the population of the city as 12,000, aadyou.per-' cetve that the citizensf '^re directly paying the magnlticient s'una ot ten - cents per head of population for police'protection each year. We^ite pending infinitely - more on parks and boulevards to make Lethbridge a city beautiful. Don't you think ten . cents a heed Is a trifle - penurious .when a matter of the ftioral welfare ;of the city is concemea? .1^ is very  fine, we admit, to have Lethbridge ' known as a city beautiful but it we >�re niggardly in providing police pro-iteotlon, thus allowing Lethbridge to ; become known throughout the West as a wide-open town, we- are not doing ;our duty^' Economy is the cry at the present ;^line. Mayor Hardle declares that ec-  onomy was the basis tor the SkeHon settlement. He will have to admit, however, that there is a feeling,In :many quarters that he is straining _aconomy to the limit. It would he .,^ell for the city council to gel Into close touch with the body.of the cit-.Uene on this Important matter. thorn of the necessity ot taking the advice we off�r: WiRt Is known m the parlance of pugilism as a battle royaf Is both Interesting and exciting, although the spectacia of 'four or five fighters In the Hni? at the same time, going at one another hammer and longs, scarcely cerves to bring out the finer points of the manly art. Something of the same nature is discoverable-among the several agencies,, goTornmentnl and oniorwise, to wliich the nation looks for its coal supply this winter. The National Coal nssocialloii, re-present ing more than halt of the bituminous -oporators of the country, forecatts another coal shortage. Lack of cars has cut production to n dangerous point, it says, and the mines are making iltfle headway. No doubt the assoclatiun Is actuated by the highcat motives in stressing the needs ot the mfoes for cars, not only as regards the coming needs ot the private cot\sumcr, but the prosecution of vitally important wnr work as well.

I -tTHE POSSIBILITIES '.OF A COAL FAMINE, Many Westerners have not yet "fully grasped the coal situation and tba abaolute need ot stocking a yria-Uer'a lupply ot coal as early In' the ,'iummer as possible.

However, the wind changed round to the southwest 8n Sunday morning, and since then it has been getting warmer. On' Sunday morning we had a sharp touch of frost, "damaging the hop vines on a tew verandahs. Garden jituff, as tar as we know, has not suffered. Jfrs. Rice, of Magrath, was a visitor at the Coulee last week. Prikay being' Victoria Day, children no doubt enjoyed a brief respite from their lessons. Mr. and Mrs. H. Loveday and family are now at the Coulee. We hope' they are permanent residents. Mr. C. H. Kelly, who is In the hands of a I city doctor on .account -of his arm, spent the night here, returning home on Saturday morning..

Concert Postponed. \ On account of.the holiday the concert which was advertised to take place last Thursday, was unavoidably postponed to Friday ot this week, the 31st of the month. As . the proceeds are on behalf ot the Red Cross, it -is. hoped that a large number will turn out. It would be a fitting re-ward'to these ladies who have spent so much, time on the spade work. Do not forget the honr-8 p.m. Still another drive. The south country Is falling Into line with the whole ot the Dominion,! this time for the F. M.. C. to stimulate interest and to effect an organization. " Mr. J. Y. Card, of Cardston, gave ah address at the church bn'Sunday. It was a pity that a larger number of men did not; turn out. Facta and figures would have convinced them of the need for funds to carry on the work. Particular epiphasls was laid on the physical, tmental aud religious work of the "Y", but at the same time It, was free from any sectarljin bias. At the front It was the connecting .link between the man and his home, and innumerable testimonies have come by men'of all shades ot opinion to4.tB great value. At the conclusion of the service the following-laidles and genllenjen were nominated, as a committee: .Mr. Faincr, Mr. Kelly, Mr. C. C. Thoinp son, Mr. R.' Thomson, Mr. L. Thomson, Mr. and Mrs, Tollffe, Mr. G. Calph, Mr. Byron Nelson, Mr. Sherman, Mr. Barrlss. .
