Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - October 7, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta MONDAY, ""OCTOBER 7, 1918 ^c3E LKTHBRIDGE DAILY HERALD PAGE FIVE ) Washington, Oct. 7. - Discussing Germany's police offer in tlia senate today, Senator Hitchcock of Nebraska, chairman of the foreign relations committee, declared "absolutely abhorrent" even a thought of suspension of hostilities now, and recommended the addition to the prlnclplos previously laid down joy the president as a basis for peace, one providing that the allies would deal only with real representatives of the German people. Republican Leader Lodge, ranking minority member of the foreign relations committee, declared that nn armistice "would mean the loss of the war and all we have fought, for." Germany, he said, now merely proposes a long debate on the basis of peace. The only future course, Senator Lodge emphatically declared, is to secure n complete military victory oyer Germany and force her to sue for peace. Senator McCumber. of North Dakota, Introduced a resolulion which was referred to the foreign relations committee, providing that before the United States agreed to any armis-tice, Germany must disband her army, surrender' her navy, arms and munitions and agree to pay for damages to cities and countries devastated, rostore Alsace Lorraine to France together with the penalty exacted from France in 1870. Quite irrespective of the nature of the reply, it seemed to be agreed that the German note called for a prompt reply so that the American people might not be misled Into relaxing their efforts for the fourth Liberty loan; so that the American troops in the field may know at onciTihe position of their government; so that an offer of peace may receive such diplomatic attention as it deserves. The Austrian communication is substantially similar to that from Germany and both ask President WilBon to arrange an armistice and for peace negotiations on conditions previously laid down by the president. It is said neither of the official texts differs materially from the version published in MOTHER! GIVE GUILD "SYRUP OF FIGS" IF TONGUE IS COATED If CroBS, Feverish, Sick, Bilious, Clean Little Liver and Bowels. Children love this "fruit laxative," and nothing else cleanses the tender stomach, liver nnd bowelB so nicely. A child simply will not stop playing to empty the bowels, and the result is, they become tightly clogged with waste, liver gets sluggish, stomach sours, then your little one becomes cross, half sick, feverish, don't eat, sleep or act naturally, breath is bad, system full of cold, has sore throat, stomach-ache or diarrhoea. Listen, Mother! See if tongue is coated, then give a teaspoonful of "California Syrup of Figs," and in a few hours all the constipated waste, sour bile and undigested food passes out of the system, and you have a well, playful child again. Millions of mothers give "California Syrup of Figs" because it is perfectly harmless; children love it, and it never fails to act on the stomach, liver and bowels. Ask your druggist for a 50-cent bottle of "California Syrup of Figs," which has full directions for babies, children of all ages and for grownups. Beware of counterfeits sold here. Get the genuine, made by "California Fig Syrup Company. Refuse any other kind with contempt.-Advert.

Official announcements of the atti-tudo of the United States government still were being withheld, but there is no abatement of the Indication that if Germany seeks a "negotiation" leading to round table conference and diplomatic problems, the offer will fall flat. Turkey In It Paris, Oct. 7.-The German propaganda service at Berlin announced today that Turkey, through Spain, has sent a note to President Wilson to the same effect: and at the same time as the communications forwarded by Germany and Austria-Hungary. French Socialist's View Paris, Oct. 7.-The national congress of the Socialist party, which opened here yesterday, adopted a resolution addressed to President Wilson concerning the peace proposals of the central powers. It expressed the view of the party that while indispensable diplomatic and military guarantees had been exacted from the enemy, it was the duty of the allied nations not to reject without discussion such proposals as have been made. The message says that the party notes with joy the new results from the efforts put forth by the soldiers of the allied democracies. The party likewise sees in the move made by the central powers, accompanied by the retirement of their troops from the fighting tftmt, the probability that the enemy peoples will be brought to a clearer understanding of right and liberty. Huns Not Sincere London, Oct. 7.-If the German propositions had been sincere, say allied diplomats here, the German troops would already have ceased their wanton destruction. One of the most distinguished of the diplomatists says that the proposal for an immediate armistice was put forward with the hope that the .allies would accept and the negotiations probably would be protracted for months and perhaps even for years, in the hope that the offensive spirit of the allied armies would meanwhile decline. Democratic Principles Prevail. Jladrid, Oct. 7.-The Diario Universal, the organ of Count Romanons, minister of justice,' sees in the German peace proposal the best proof of the superiority and efficacy of democratic principles. It says: "Finding itself in a grave situation, the German government turns toward the Left in the presence of danger. It does not appeal to force but seeks salvation 'in the abandonment of the militaristic organization, which is Germany's principal characteristic." Foreign Minister Dato's newspaper, the Epoca, says:: "It is not peace, because the central powers will not admit President Wilson's conditions without modification. It is unfortunate that just at this juncture, Spain should be in the midst of s political crisis, without a government and without an effective parliament." What the Press Agents Say AT ST ARLAND A surprising new play, with Alice Brady as the star, vjill be shown tonight at Starland theatre. The play bears the unique title of "The Spurs of Sybil" and it tells of the manner In which Sybil Drew wins her spurs in a battle with the world. Sybil has been brought up as ;a "poor relation" by her wealthy aunt. The latter feels that the life Sybil is leading is making her unhappy and discontented so the aunt sends Sybil out into the world with just $125 and with instructions to win her spurs by earning her own living for one year. By doing this, the aunt says, Sybil will gain happiness. Sybil's pride is aroused and she determines to make good. Startling and surprising adventures befall Sybil as she seeks to win her spurs. The story is filled to the brim with exciting incidents. The action is exceedingly brisk, the situations are unique and interesting and the direction and photography are superb. AT THE MAJESTIC Many plays are impossible, viewed from a realistic standpoint, but o'nen in a while a play comes along that is so natural that one finds himself say- Special Notice NOTICE is hereby given to all parties contemplating installing new gas services that no further applications will be accepted after 5 o'clock p.m. of Oct. 15th, 1918. CANADIAN WESTERN NATURAL GAS, LIGHT, HEAT AND POWER CO., LTD. 250-10 THIS WEAK, NERVOUS MOTHER Telb How Lydia E. Pinkham'a Vegetable Compound Restored Her Health. Philadelphia, Pa.-"I was very wesk, always tired, my back ached, and I felt sickly most of the time. I went to a doctor and he said I had nervous indi- festion, which ad-ed to my weak condition kep ma worrying most of the time-and he said if I could not stop that, I could not get Well. I heard somuchabout Lydia E. Pinkham'a ! Vegetable Compound my husband'wanted me to try it I took it for a week and felt a little better. I kept it up for three months, and I feel fine and cmi eat anything now without distress or nervousness. "-Mrs. J. Worthline, 2842 North Taylor St, Philadelphia Pa. The majority of mothers nowaday* overdo, there are so many demands upon their time and strength; the result is invariably a weakened, run-down, nervous condition with headaches, backache, irritability and depression -- and soon more serious ailments develop. It is at such periods in life that Lydia E. Pinkham'a vegetable Compound will restore a normal healthy condition, aa it did to Mrs. Werthline. ing, "I 'believe that really happened." Such a play is "My Irish Cinderella" which comes to the Majestic theatre next Friday and Saturday, Oct. 11 and 12, with special matinee Saturday. Whether or not it did really happen cannot be said but certain it is that the story is very plausible and that the characters are very real. Peggy McNeil, a poor house drudge, is taken from New York City to London, as the heir to the Earl of Lonsdale, and while there she meets Clifford Morgan a young American aviator, "who has been serving in the cause of the Allies and who is the guest of the Karl of Lonsdale, while recovering from a wound received at the front. The first time that Peggy sees him she thinks that he is the greatest hero that ever lived and every tlay , wo have advanced from four to five i thousand yards across Hie Tcrriere ! plateau. This morning the line ran east of Aubencheul-aux-Bois 'o past the western fringe of Morte Wood, then'l to Bnnabus farm and then north through Lauroy and Catalet. farm. "From Hequehart. we extended j front to Mannnriuln Hill, thence .Vcvilie's Cross. "During the fighting on the Cam-brai-St. Quentin front, we took prisoners, up to last night, between 1100 and ll'Ou Germans. In Flanders the Germans continue their hard pressed retreat. No little credit for the existing situation in this region is due to the Sth British army under Gen. Bird-wood, of Anzac history, who for long weeks has been harassing and punishing tho Germans." The Day's War Summary I.e our to (By the Associated Press) Oul-fotiguf by the French and Americans, the Germans are reti-euting on a wide front in the Champagne sector between Itheims and the Argonno j forest. The enemy has been caught belween Gen. Berthelot's army on the I west and Gen. Gouraud's forces on the east and is retiring northward toward ! the Relourne river. It. may be possible Cor him to stand buck on that i stream but. Il seems improbable there will be much of a halt, in the retreat, until the Germans reach the Aisne. Gen. Berthelot's advance in I he Rheims region has gravely menaced the enemy forces south of the Retournc. Tho French have, reached the Suippe river over a wide front. YANKS BATTLE BRILLIANTLY American forces have been battling brilliantly with Gouraud's army and have aided materially in expelling the enemy from the Champagne sector. Further east, the Americans fighting between the Argonne forest and tho Meuse river are slowly clearing the Germans from the area before the Krlernhiltle line and marshalling their forces for an assault on that powerful position. LILLE LIKELY TO BE EVACUATED From the region nf Lille, southward to Cambrai, the German retreat begun when Lens and Armcntieres were abandoned last week, is being continued with what appears to be precipitation. There is every reason to believe that the city of Lille will be evacuated by the enemy within a few days and that his retirement will extend far down the front, to the St. Quentin neetor where the French and British are reported to be clear through the Hindenburg line. HUNS HOLD FAST TO PIVOT .So far the German line from St. Quentin south to Die Ailotte and thence eastward to Berry-au-Bac is standing quite firmly and evidently this part of the enemy's position is being used as a pivot a.s his armies to the north and east, swing back to new positions: ITALIAN FORCES ATTACK HINGE Italian forces, however, have struck at. the German lines in front of I.aon and early reports of the. progress made there would appear to justify the belief that the hinge of the foe's lines may be broken. HUNS DEFEATED ON MACEDONIAN FRONT German detachments which have been fighting beside the Bulgarian army in Macedonia are being withdrawn, according to an announcement made at Berlin. Serbian ami French forces are reported to have inflicted a defeat on German and Austrian units, near the city of Vranje.
