Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 23, 1916, Lethbridge, Alberta BIG BAIILE Seven Million Men Now Gathered on 900-Mile Kattlc Line From to the Danube. London, Oct. greatest bat tic in the world's history is about to be staged on the eastern front, in the opinion ot high military officials hern After months o'f manoeuvring nearly 7 000 000 men have come to grip along the almost unbroken front fron Riga to tiio Danube. Hand to bane of the most violent characte is going on, on the whole length of tin 300-mile line. The next three week will probably sec the climax ot thi struggle So tar there is no inflicatioi of the final result, although the Rus Elans unquestionably are slowly gam lug ground. The chief Russian mov at the moment seems to aim at th envelopment of Hallcz from the nort and cutting oft the through line c communication between that stroiiL hold and Letnberg. Observers lay em pliasis on the value of the Russian winter to the Czar's troops. This period'will prove as it has proven in the post, ot immense value to the Russians, and of little value to the Teutons. For the Russians it means accumulation ot great shell supplies and the training of new armies ot re- serves.

The attitude of the executive. Is that tbe matters in dispute were definitely disposed ot so far as the machinery under.'the Lemiux Act is concerned two years ago, wllSIL the process of "conciliation, "investigation and re- port" was concluded.-'The finding then muds iy, thfcBfflJsiity.of.'the concilia- tion bBard'was not acceptable to tbe men, and they now claim they are legally entitled to walk out. They deny in fact the suggestion .that has come from Ottawa, that they would-not-be within their legal rights in so doing. An urgent "whip" has been sent to all affected union leaders, advising them that nothing has transpired to invalidate the reason to strike as from Wednesday next.

Crothers is continuing his con- ferences with Sir Robert Bordon and others of his colleagues in thS hope that some means ot settling the diffi- culties may be arrived at. The minis- ter is in constant communication with the C P R. officials and strike lead- ers It is not likely that the applica- tion of the company for the appoint- ment of a board of conciliation will be complied with unless the men agree to recognize it, because it is recogmz- led that a board named under such circumstances would be futile. The im- jpressicn prevails liens that the gov- ernment will exert all its powers to persuade. the men to postpone the luate fixed for the strike from Wed- nesdav at 5 o'clock until some subse- quent date so that more opportunity would be given to bring tbe members toother. An official statement of the attitude of the labor department in regard to the strike will probably be issued shortly.

All troops necessary for the job were up and in position already waiting for such day as this, when the eyes that see for them from the observation posts can tell whether the practice shells they leisurely fire are on the target, which they are to "paste" as far as they can on the sig- nal beins given for the concert to be- gin When the same kind of weather continued today the staff officers who arrange the affairs said: "This is the day for the Germans In the Regina treach." The Regina is a long trench of nearly three miles, about the same length as tbe battle- front at Gettysburg. Shortly alter noon when there had been tbe usual amount of shell fire iall morning and no signs anywhere on the landscape that anything un- usual was going to happen, Number One curtain fire was suddenly turned on with tho same effect on the ear as 'when all the whistles in New York i start when the clock strikes 12 o'clock. iNew Year's eve. The usual billowy 1 cloud of shell smoke, vaporously ex- tensive in the cold air, churned and whipped the length of the Regina. i trench with the customary accuracy 'ot these swathes of death and tem- pest, and then the British infantry were in full possession of the trench. Some Germans bolted from the first ugly breath of barrage, knowing, from experience that the only thing ito do to move on to another posl- I tion and force the gunners to prepare another deluge for the next stop of the i allied offensive.
