The new attack today was a general one and was delivered by strong forces of the British 3rd and 4th armies. The Brltlah forged ahead toward the Scheldt canal and the tributary lines along which the enemy is endeavoring to protect the flank of his grand retirement.

Calder, who returned to the capital from the west this morning, when seen by a representative of the Canadian Press, Limited, expressed himself as being well satisfied with western conditions. The visit of several ministers to western Canada, he said, was bound to result in the ministry being better Informed as to the requirements of these provinces. When questioned as to the proposed conference of provincial premiers to consider problems connected with'the demobilization of the Canadian soldiers and theirt welfare after the war, Mr. Calder said he understood that the matter was now being considered by Sir Robert Borden, who had been in communication with the provincial premiers. The western ministers had held a satisfactory one day's conference at Regina, Mr. Calder said, and it was his intention to get in touch with the provincial premiers of the east. A conference would probably be necessary in order to secure the lands, which is' one of thw. questions which will have to be arranged with the provinces as they are equally interested with the Dotnlnion government for making arrangements for the care of their returned men.
