Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - September 6, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 6, 1918 TKE jLETIIBRIDGE DAILY IIERALO PAGE SEVEN Canadians are Faced by A Strpng Hun Force Now w - (By .T. F. B. Ijlvesuy, Canafllan Press Correspondout.) AVilli'the Caiiarlloii Forces, Sept. 5. fc-QiH' patrols report tUo oneray is bolding tlio.Canal Du Nord In front of ur In strong force. He is very Btrnng lu machine gun posts in the v )od of Queanoy, on the border of Hie Senseo rlvor valley and north of tills vnlley ho liolds strong ground. Ho holds the villages and woods #i fronting across the Canal Du Nord IT which Is hore in some spots fifty yards acrosa. The enemy has blown f\ (ho locks and nearly every brUigo. The British troops have crossed the tunal further south. Meanwhile the Canadian corps H having a well earned rest. Some of Us units suffered heavily from enemy machine gun fire. Nothing in the desperate infantry Ibattle of last jMonday was more re-tnarkahie than to .seo the enemy's troops streaming away eastward, while down through these beaten passes, came hlsi picki'd corps of machine gunners, prepared to hcU their lives dearly. The extent and .slgniticanco of that ereat victory when the Caniidians stormed the famous Queant-Drocourt switch hitherto regarded as imiireg-jiablo may best be judged by the fact tliat the Canadians and British fighting in this sector met and overwhelmed on that day the elements of no fewer Ihau 11 enemy divisions, Including picked troops and divisions brought in fresh from reserve. ilemonta have been positively identified by prisoners taken from them and liiay may be recapitulated in detail with profit. The battle divided itself materially Into two topographical sections, north and south of the Arras-Cambrai road. Chronologically it was regulated into three stages by the program prepared beforehand by the corps commander and his staff. Thi.s program, despite heavy lo.isea, wua carried out to the lottor and that accomplisrment in itself renders unnecessary further reference to the wonderful spirit of the troops engaged. Each unit was imbued wilh the fixed idea that itmust be on its objective at the dot and it was this spirit that wrung victory from the massed and desperately fighting enemy units. T-Torth of the road our divisions engaged encountered in the first stage, namely, from the five o'clock kick-off, the fourth Ersatz division including the 214th, .162nd and tho HGOth regiments, all the battalions of tlieae being Identified as In action that morninB. Passing on to the second stage, it encountered the 150th and !)l8t regiments of the second guards reserve division all.these battalions being identified. In the third stage we overwhelmed all the battalions of the first and second guards reserve regiments belonging to the first guards reserve division. In addition to this there ware encountered and beaten on this front the first and third grenadiers and the first division and the 43rd regiment of the same division. South of the Cambral road the task was no ligliter. Disposed of Thpm In the first stage our troops disposed the enemy's .16th c'f/lslon including all the batUllons of the 26th. B8th and 29th regiments, as.well as 103rd regiment some attention also yeing given to the 58th division. In tlie second stage they defeated and passed over the enemy's third reserve divisions Including ail the battalions of the 34th fusilier regiments and the 49th reserve regiment and all but two battalions of the second grenadier regiment. Advancing after assault to reorganize for tho third and final stage, tho units engaged overthrew the enemy's Ulth divlsi�n consisting of all the battalions of the 164th and 73rd regiments, as well as all but one of the battalions of tho 76th regiment. In addition to these three divisions our troops south of the Cambral road withstood and defeated counter-attacks by various enemy elements, Identified from prisoners captured as follows: 51st regiment; 167th regiment; 708 cavalry divisions ' consisting of the 26th dragoons and 4th and 15th Uhlans and tho 4th Jaegers. Allowing tor the weakening of the enemy divisions the force opposed was still about four times that of the Canadian troops actually thrown Into the assault.

N., LETH8RIDGE Calgary, Sept. C-That he deliber ately pretended to be intoxicated in order to trap E. 13. A. Jackson of Edmonton into bribing in connection with the granting of additional leave to men in class one under the mlll-tory service act, was the most-sensational part of the evidence given in police court this morning before bieut.-Col. Magee, superintendent of military police for the west, when the hearing in the .Jackson case began. Col. Magee was questioned nearly all morning. He stated that, he broached the subject of money to Jackson, telling him that he did not see why he (Magee) could aot make some money out of the granting of leave of absence. Jackson, according to Magee's evidence, said that could be fixed nil right. The sum of $10,000 was mentioned by Magee and shortly after Jackson left the room and returned with $200 in ten and twenty dollar bills which he handed to Magee.
