Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - September 13, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 13,1918 THE LETHBRTDGE DAmY HERAID PAGE FIVE AMERICANS HAV SALIEN ATS BY TOTAL OF 20 MILES London, Sept. 13.-(7 p^m.)- (Associated Press.)-Alt the vll-liiges In the St, Mlhlel salient were captured and the front In this sector was reduced from some 40 miles to a little under 20 miles. The latest news from the St. Mlhlel sector shows that the bat-ttellne now runs directly from Pagny, on the Moselle river, to Hattonvllle and then along the foot of the heights of the Meuse. Pagny, a town on the Moselle river, Is on the western border of Germany. In addition to the 12,000 prison' crs who have been counted, large numbers of Germans are still coming In. The railway from Verdun to Clean to handle. Sold by k\\ Drufji lists, Grocers and General Stfircfk Commsrcy, Taut and Nancy it now open to the entente allies: (By the Aasoclated Press.) The American ofttneive in Lorraine was reported today ^to be continuing Its brlUiantly successful course. The apparent prospect waa that not only would the St. Mlhlel salient be speedily wiped out, hut tliat a heavy blow would bo dealt the Germans in the loss of men and material. Already 9,500 prlBoners and GO gufis have been taken, according to today's advices. The raidd progress on Uje AMeri-cans on both sides at the salient now affords hope that atiU greater numbers of Oorraans may be caught in the looji ugon which the Americans are clo.slng in. The Americans now appear to have made an advance o� some eight miles _ on the southern elde of Uie salient. I This would bring them near the important town of VJgneulles, lying on the only failway line In the loop, which town today is unofficially reported In American bauds. South of Vlgneul-l6s, the town of Heudlconrt Is declared to be in American possession, while to the east, toward Thiacourt, the Americans have/secured the Important Thiacourt wood and the town of Benyv On West Side. Meanwhile, ou the westerly side o� the /allenti where the going is more difficult, the American advance on a 12 mile front is understood to have scored three miles. The converging operatlon.s thus appear to have resulted in the closing of the neck of the loop to a point where it is now not much more than fire miles Tivo German divisions were rcporl-____A_ PUT OUR GOODIES IN THE CHILDftENS lunch �BASK^'^S THE LITTLE ONES GOING TO SCHOOL NEED NOURISHING' FOODS FOR THEIR GROWING BODIES.

FOOD CONTROL LICENSE No. 8-2408 ed last night tu be still in this part ot the salient and it they have not succeeded in extricating themselve.s their capture seems probable. The dermana have had great rtiffi culty in getting their artillery away over'the ioue railroad line at their disposal. They were worltlijg feverishly last night to move the /guns out through Vigneiilles, but their way past now seems blocked by the continued American progros.s today. Numbers' of Crencli mortars and a great Quantity ot machine guns are already in American hands, besides the guns reported talien. While the Americans arc thus driving ahead, the French and ]3ritish are continuing to make progress along the nortli and .south sections of the battle-front. The French last night closed in toward St. Quentin, capturing the town of Savy,- little more than 2% miles from St. Quentin's outskirts. The British advanced further to the nortiiwest on St. Quentin, taking the village of Jeancourt and gaining possession of Holnon wood. Farther north, the British were subjected to Gorman attaclres heights, says the official statement issued today by the Austrian war office, assured the systematic relief of the Germans. Anticipated Resistance Paris, Sept. 1�.-(5 p.m.).-(Associated Press).-Officers of tlie American general staff expected a desperate resistance where the armiss are now battling on the St. Mihiel sector'. The presence of Field Marshal Hinden-burg at the Metz fortress four days ago conveyed the impression that the Germans anticipated an Amerlcah attack and were resolved to defend i\\e\ positions bitterly. Villages Not Destroyed London, Sept. 13.-Most of flie'villages captured by the Americans in the St. Mlhlel salient were left in good condition by the Germans. Expect Strong Resistance London, Sept. 13.-=-The British public has been anxiously looking, for another American move, but hardly expected it so soon and the news of the Franco-American attack to pinch out the St. Mihiel salient, which the Germans drove into the French lino in September, 1914, and has stood over f. reached the first objectives at some points an hour ahead .of schedule time. Seven hundred prisoners have already been taken. \ 8,000 Prisoners Washington, Sept, \2. - American troops, operating in the St, Mihiel sector, made considerable gains today. Gen, Pershing reported in his comnumloation to the war department late tonight. Airoady 8,000 prisoners have been counted and the movement is still in progress. Purely American Paris, Sept, 12.-The first big American of^enslTje, which began at daybreak today bet.-.veen the Meuse and Moselle rivers, was conducted under Gen, Pershing's personal supervision and was exectited under orders of American officers and soldiers. This was the first dlstincti.v American operation of a major cliwacter launched on the western front. All along the line, the advance has been carried out on schedule. Near Malzerais, the troops went ahead against machint> gnh fire by crawling and tanks were sent to their aid. To the north. T^es Parges hill and the neighboring Hill 322 were captured. Numbers of the enemy surrendered at the latter place. The American casualties have been remarkably low. b CANADA PAYIN ALL INTEREST ON Edmonton, Sept, 13.-"Canada i-s now paying all ii.s interest charges on war loans." declared the Hon. A. L. Sifton, minister of customs and inland revenue, in the ITilion government, on his return to Edmonton, "The nation's business i.s on a good footing and the figures shown for the past year .ire eminently satisfactory," said Mr, Sifton, In his own department,' the inland revenue of the Dominion would be in excess of last yaar to the extent ot about $1,000,000 a month, largely accounted for by war taxes, -.The customs-, revenue would be soniewliat smaller than 1917, but still in excess of the pre-war figures. "Canada is meeting il-s ordinary running expenses and laying up a surplus, which will amount, this year, to nearly $50,000,000 and which v/ill be applied to the reduction of the national debt. Millions have been saved for the country by the elimination of patronage In war purchases, every dollar's worth now being bought through a war purchasing commission." Mr. Sifton will attend to, some personal business, while in the city, and will leave for Ottawa by way of Calgary in the course of a few days. NEWSPRINT HEAlu AS Ottawa. Sept. 13.-A more detailed and definite statement by Commissioner-Pringle as to his intention to issue a new order before Oct. 1, fixing a new price for newsprint and the announcement that the"inquiry would be adjourned until Monday, Sept. 23, when the commissioner hopes that the publishers will be represented, were the features of the resumed newsprint inquiry this morning. The commissioner explained today that the new order would be issued for 30 days, but that it would be renewable from month to month, probably until July X, 1919, The order, he said, could not constitute a hardship for anybody concerned, becausQ of the fact that provision has been made for a reference to an appeal tribunal in case either the publishers or the manufacturers are not satisfied with it. APPEAL TO REORGANIZE CAN. FOOD BOARD 1?7lnnipeg, Sept. 13.-a committee, representing the board of trade, the retail merchants' association and the wholesalers, waited on Hon. N. W. Rowell today to confer with him as to the proper channels at Ottawa through which to ask for a reorganization of the Canada food administration. CHAPLAIN FAVOHS EXIERMINAIN OF FOE AND BERLIN Rev. George A. flriffith Declares Germany Should be Devastat-for Cruelties of Her Army At Hanna, A, T, Pjnwarden, .7,P, ordered Harry Dowllnfe, a farmer at Sunnynoolc. to pay $75 as wages to Percy Grounds. Grounds was engaged by Dowling to work "at the going rate of wages," and when the time came for settlement, a decided difference of opinion existed between the employer and employed as to what the going rate should be, Dowling thought J50 a month ample, while the hired'man iasisted th'al $75 was the right figure. The local justice held with the employe that. $75 just filled the' bill, and gave judgment accordingly. The Rev, George A. Griffith, a !3al-tiraore pyotestant li^'piscopal clergyman serving as chaplain wiUi the Fifth Field Artillery, the regiment that fired America's first .'.hot in the war, has written a letter to i>r, Henry Barten .lacobs, a prominent Baltiniorean, which was printed in full in the ciirrent is.suo of tiie Manufacturer's Record. He discusses at length cruelties inflicted by the Germans upon civilians and .soldierp. "I feel, he says, that I express the sentiment ot those who have seen and heard over liere, when'! say that were I in America today, priest as I am, I should do my best to have put to death any boche in America or any so-called American who would apologize in any way for what the boche has done, "All that you have heard in America about them does not approximate the truth. There are little children riglit here in France with their little stumps of hands; there were .some not far from my last camp, and young men with all (he fingers of their right hand cut off. The pther' day a British officer three Tommies told me that a .�ihort time ago tliey went as an advance party into a little village from which the boche had been* driven hack and in a large room there were four young (Canadians crucified, one on each wall of the room. Also, when I was with the British they told me the boches had talit^u young Belgian and French girls into their first line trenches and tortured them until their .screanT.'! made the Scotch and the Canadians so crazed they would go over into the machine gun nests which the bocho had set up, using the women's screams as a decoy. "And I have it on the word ot a British officer (iiat they have stood the officers, with guns leveled at their men to keep them from going over when the women scream, and being needlessly slaughtered. I cannot tell you what the Tommies told me they found w-hon they drove these heii-fiends'out ot these positions. It is too awful even to think about. T also bave it on Uie word ot one of the greatest French Abbies that the boche were especially instructed to destroy convents-and kill or outrage - the nuns-and he says that all through France and Belgium are ruined convents, and tliat tlie nuns were given to the soldiers to be outraged In the camps. "These are not isolated cases nor abnormal conditions which prevail here and there where troops were drunk or without restraint, Go'^ along the Fi-encb or Belgian front, and the only conclusion you arriye at is that they are just the ground principle of bocho efficiency In action, I don't believe there is one of us here who wouldn't like to be home. But there is not one of us here, I believe, who does not want to see Bocheland devastated from one end to the other with Berlin a blackened ruin-with the boche exterminated, militarists and ail, before we come home. Favors Extermination. "It is American blood that Is flowing now, and God grant it may give America some strength to realize what we are up against. To talk of terms until the boche is exterminated is to league with Satan for a corner in hell. Privations, sacrifices! What can you do at home to compare witli what these men of ours are doing over here? Meatless days, wheatless days, sugarless days, good women knitting, benefits for tile Red Cross-or all your social diversions with a charitable object sandwiched in. "When you are'^out ou a shell .swept hill and the shells are going by like bats out of hell, as the sol-1 diers say, and it's dark as the grave, and every man, God bless -him! stands strong and true, camouflaging all his own feelings for your sake aiul for the sake of what he has back home, meatless days and wheatless days, and liberty bond campaigns seem cheap as your support of him in such an hour. "Loathe the boche-preach 'against him-work against him, wherever he is, ostracise liim socially and commercially. Take no chance - even though his reputation for loyalty has been a long-standing one. The leopard cannot change his spots-niJfther can the boche demon lose his horns. I'm bogging you now-as the boche are trying to murder us-to help wake every one up to the fact that America must realize what the world is facing over here. Can't you see it-can't America see it-how everything is hanging in the balance-and I know that the weight which shall cast it down is when your loathing for the boche will so burn in you as to make you count nothing-consider nothing -but his extermination," Denounce the "Uplifters" The writer evidently has not a very high regard for some of the "uplift" work being done by Americans, for he has this to say: "Lite moved rapidly in the camps; it was a constant procession ot sol-diers and all of the multitudinous folk who come over bore to do I'Dung flien's Christian association stunts Actors, actresses, musicians^ poor ones, good ones, high brows,' low brows, they arcall turned into the Young Men's Christian Association entertainment machine and give more or less satisfaction. Then one meets constantly the American social worker. As you have to be hooked up to the Young Men's Christian Association, the -Red Cross or the army to get gas for your machine, they generally hitch to onr, of these, though sometimes the flpn- uertiou is so slight as to be scarcely api)arent, Many nf these are doiiip splendid work along the best lines, hilt, of course, there is the crowd who works around Nice and the Koutiiern part in the winter and hears the cali for a moral uplift in Britany and the coast towns when the weather get;; warm. This hunch will be spanked and sent back home, where they belong, as soon as the work passes out of the Rontimentai stage. There were throe arrived the other day la Paris from Central New, York-well Intcn-tioned. I am sure, with a Ford- -but no knowledge of French and no gas. They wanted, I believe, to 'mother' the boys in the trenches-but trenches b"-ing bad places for v/omen-they finally wished them on .some reftige,o v;ork in the railroad station-where they could get in everybody's way and run back and forth to the interpreters. It was decided that their work was as constructive as Marcellin's the clown's, at the Hippodrome. They went home %vith their Ford, and you may have the privilege of hearing them describe their life in the trenches somewhere in Baltimore."
