LETHBRIDGE, ALBERTA. tqESDAY, SEPTEMBER 17, 1918 NUMBER 235 HTYBLOW IN FLANDERS-ARE NEAR HOOGE EAGER TO SURRENDER; Liberia is Enthusiastic for Cause-Possible to Drive Germans to the Frontiers. Ollovannaya, Trans-Baikal, Weduos-flay, Sept. 4.-1� the allies intend to �5ambat the German forces In Hussia and to save tBe Russians from falling under the German yoke, it is ab-eolutely essential that troops be sent Immediately to the present eastern IrontJi.along the Volga. This is the opinlbn-of Gen, Gaida, commanderr of the GUlnese-Cz'echo-Slovaks fighting on tbeVP.lsa. who haS; arrived here from the' weSt. Along Uie Volga, the ; Czecho-Slo-^iiks, aidetf^ Tjy^in&wly-or^aMzed Rtfs-Blai.;,lJnltB,^tKa :g6tieral -said.-^e, ftt-, ^emptrrig'tb.cpresf lorwai-a ; aeaiittit; greatly sOperldr' ^neiny forces, >vhloh increase dally, owing to the mobilization of released Austro-German prisoners.

Berlin also fears untoward bappenings. There is unbounded enthusiasm in Siberia owing to the deliverance from Bolsheviki rule through the activities of Czechs. East of the Ural mountains, volunteers are flocking to the Siberian railway to join the new Si-iberian army. Twenty thousaiuLjnon already are under arms., The 1918 and 1919 classes have been ordered mobilized and are making a splendid resiionse. Gen. Gaida said he believed it wouiil be fatal if the present enthusiasm in Siberia were permitted to die out. In a few months, Russia would posses an army capable of driving the Ger-anans to the frontier it the allies will eend troops to the aid of the Czechs, Within the territory freed from the 'Bolshevik! by the Czechs are. between 300,000 ini 4OO,0G0 Austro-Gerjnan prisoners. Formerly they roamed about the country at will, but they now liave been placed at useful work. To guard the prisoners and to protect the railways, lines of communication and' important towns a considerable, portion of the Czechs east of the Urals are required. Included in this number is the contingent commanded by Gen. 'Dietrichs. It is declared that there is sufficient food and supplies in Siberia for the maintenance of a large army. The winter period ,l9 quite suitable for miilt-tary operations in South Russia from the Volga to the Ukraine. "We are all pimatlently awaiting the arrival of allied troops," declared Gen. Gaida, "an,d the moment we shall fight Bide by side on a far larger scale than previously on a now Rusgp-Ger-man front."
