Oa Tuesday next, we commemorate
tlit find anniversary of tbe battle of
Vlmy Ridge, and in view of ttie fact
that recent events in tlit Ureal War
have eriued from our tuliidt. the details uf thu brilliant achievement ot
the Canadian lores at Vlmy a year
nj-o, it way he well tu recall the Important feature* of the eucounter.
Viiuy Kldge, which emends from
Hum-In i. to Vlcury, which is just north
of Arras, was the objective of Hit*
French ul an curlier stage of the
war and iu this district their losset
ure said to have amounted to the enormous total of 170,000 before securing a footing on the ridge. Thin seo
tor wus later tukeu over hy the British forces and Vlmy Ridge allotted to
the Canadians. Tlie dale set for tho
advance was the Sth of April and
everything was planned down to the
smallest detail.
itehlud the Nenville St. Vaust sector, a miniature Vlmy was laid out
even to the details of thc machine gun
emplacements ho thnt when the big
day arrived, every man knew just
what his duty would be when tbe British barrage was lifted and the order,
came to go "over the top."
It was a dark night and u light drizzle of rata was falling when, on April
Sth, tbe battalions that were to make
the advance, moved Into the front line
trenches. Comrades had little to say,
one to tbe other, for they realized
'.hat before another sun had set many
of them would be borne back to add
mound after mound to the long line
already to be found In the last silent
entrenchments of other Britishers,
dead on the field ot honor. There was
tin: fear ln their hearts, however, there
was no doubt in their minds as to the
.income of tomorrow's battle. They
were confident.
"Heine" seemed to know that a big
offensive was pending, for all night
long his big batteries roared ceaselessly, while the British artillery replied intermittently. The latter saved
its great weight of metal to greet the
first struggling rays of tbe dawn of
April 9th, a date that will go down ln
Canadian history as one of the great
military achievements of the sons ot
the, maple leaf.
V'*t-t.-.fiii In frond, tlifal eXUctly with
those of the artillery commanders,
the officers of the various units waited impatiently for the moment when
the parapet was to be crossed and the
enemy dislodged from his stronghold.
Weather conditions had not improved with the dawn, but at the time set
the British Artillery loosed all its
pent-up fury on the German lines
und trenches that had heen substantial and strongly constructed hy thc
enemy, were beaten Into shapeless
ditches strewn with debrlfl,
Two minutes after Hie creeping barrage started the order was given and
ihe Canadians eagerly started forward, advancing under shelter of the
barrage, Signals of distress from the
enemy trenches were soon heard and
so effective was the work of the artillery, acting under direction of nir-
planb observers that our infantry
galned ground far more rapidly thai.
Inul been anticipated and after nd*
vHncliiR lu places considerably beyond
tin- objective, withdraw to the line that
liar} been planned and proceeded to
consolidate the gain.
The night of the 9th fell with the
infantry al rtsl with the heavy artillery growling sullenly. Weather conditions improved during the night und
on the morning of the Mill n further
charge resulted In tlie Canadians Ink
ing about 8500 yards,
In ten days, the Canadians, co-oper-
Miinu with the imperial forces ailvanc-
od on a ton IWHfl front to a depth at
some points of six miles and to the
Cuiindians alone fell r-OOft prisoners
nnd a large quantity of hnoty, Including one naval Rim, BG howitzers.
21 field gnus. VH machine guni and
21 trench mortars.
In the words of Ct.pt. Rev. Alan
Hbatford, C. R. F„ the magnificent victory of the Canadian troops was worth
all our anguish and our struggles.
Needless to say this advance was
not made Without considerable losses
and In this connection It is Interesting to note the opinion of James H. i
Thompson regarding the work of the
Ambulance   Corps.    Thompson,   who!
onlHted here with the 54th Bnttn. in j
March   1916.  went  overseas  with  a
draft nnd being attached to the 7th
Battalion was In ont of the first waves
advancing from the Vlcury end of the |
ridge.   He was attached to the C, A. |
M. C nnd speaks In the highest terms
of the work of the St. John Ambul-
tinco Association nnd he Is In a position to speak with authority as he

ii no tn addition to ministering to thej
wounded wns himself put out of action
for nine weeks through a shrapnel
bullet when working near Vpres and,
later being Invalided home after suf- ■
r< ring from shock caused by n shell
bursting within n few feet of him in ,
Fresnoy Woods. For his work Thompson was awarded the military medal. '
Tho local branch of the St. John
Ambulance Association plans to cob- ;
decisions at the Coast. Mr. Justice
Macdonald decided that liquor coulo
not be held, but in that case it was
proven whose liquor it was. In the
case of the chinaman It was proven
that It was his.

Magistrate Arnold on Wedne-idfiy
March 27th. The accused John Pattin-

in a place other than a private dwelling house.
Liquor to the value of approximately
.seized by tlie Police.
B. C. Hersey, Chief of Police, for
tlie prosecution.
.Mr. A. B. Macdonald for the accused,
The accused, through his Counsel,
plended guilty, the Court imposing a
fine of $.10.00 or thirty days Imprisonment.
The fine was paid and Mr, Macdonald applied to the Court for return of
the liquor.
Chief Hersey:—Provided that Pat-
tlnson can prove to the satisfaction of
the Court that lie is the owner of the
liquor, I raise no objection.
Mr. Macdonald:—You have inflicted
a fine of $50.00 for this man having
liquor in an unlawful place. There
is nothing more left. The gist of the
case is having liquor: heing in possession of liquor, und having it in an unlawful place. Pattinson hnd the liquor, if he had it In his house, you
could have no objection; there could
be no fine. He hnd the liquor on the
.street i>r liL.a^.improper,.olace He
is fined for that, but there fs no way
In which the liquor can be confiscated.

Mr. Macdonald—This is eactly what
I object to. We have a case which
should be tried on its merit**. It Is
being tried on hearsay, Thero is absolutely no evidence that I'attinson
does not own it.
Maglsllute Arnold—There is no evidence before the Court that it is Pat-
ttnson's, yours or mine. He is charg-:
cd with having it. 1 do not know
where he was fetching it from, to'
take it to. Neither you nor Chief,
Hersey have proved that it is his.

It Is safe to assume that they have

a tendency to seriously impair their

That the objectives were not reached according to the much heralded
German programme Is due to the heroic resistance of the British and
French troops who threw themselves
time and again into the beach with'
dauntless courage.
The present lull is all In favor of

Vlmy Ridge is a name that will always be thought of in connection with
thc gallantry of the Canadian troops,
who on April 9th. 1917, added lustre
■~o a never-to-be-forgotten name for
daring, courage and bravery.
Recent events in connection with
the Greut War may have a tendency
io erase from our minds the details
-if the accomplishment of our forces
at Vlmy a year ago, but the mention
if two names—Ban field and Harrison
-reminds us that oar own cltlxens
were taking part In that famous nat*>
tie aud It Ib but fitting •'nit we should
take advantage of the FlagUhy organised by the local brunch of St.

A Dominion wide campaign for the
purpose of raising $2,250,000 for Y. M.
('. A. work overseas is being arranged.
on May 7tli, 8th, and 9th. The machinery In the campaign Is being set up
in every district throughout the Dominion. British Columbia has 8 divisions, Cranurook being the centre
und headquarters of the Crows Nest
district extending from Crows Nest to
Kootenay Landing and north to Ath-
almere and south to the International
Boundary. The apportionment for B.
C. is $100,000. A. L. Carr of Fernle,
director ln this district, Is this week
In Cranbrook organizing a central
committee to shape up the big drive In
ibis district.
No one will doubt the mapnlflceut
work the V. M. C. A. is doing fur our
boys in England and France in helping thi 111 to win the war and preparo
for nfter-thc-war conditions. Besides
providing a home atmosphere for our
lads, huts , religious services, concerts, popular lectures and social
meeting places, the Y. M. C. A. has set
up educatlonul work known ns the
"Khaki University". The enrolment
of students at the present time num-
hers ;il"4 the mujorlty of those being
students who enlisted In Canada before completing their university work.
This gives them an opportunity to
continue their work and come back
ready to fll u large place in the na-
Honnl life.
The growth of the Canadian Y.M.C.A.
in England during the past twelve
months Is most Interesting, One yeai
ago (here were only ten centres In
the Shornclfffe Area staffed hy four-
icen officers and forty-seven light-
duty men; today there are seventy-
three centres scattered over England
und Scotland from the English Channel tn Narln in the Highlands, staffed
by fifty-four Y ,M. C. A. officers and
one hundred and fifty light duty men,
all serving the Canadian troops. The
number of entertainments In one
week's programme is 177 and estimated attendance 53,000. The work ln
France has grown equally ns great
and Is one of the brightest features
for our boys in a strange land.

(Special to the Herald)
Mrs. Ralph Smith has fathered a
bill entitled "An Act to provide for al
Minimum Wage for Women," and it
has been mothered hy the late speaker,
Mr. V/eart; now we know why the
member for South Vancouver resigned
the speakership. We would suggest
that the bill contain the following
clauses: First, that no woman be
allowed to work any longer Ktaa eight
hours <i.--;>r>,'v^hethcr In the factory
'U'theHt^ld, or at home. Some women
rtw begin their work at 5 o'clock In
the morning and are on duty until
10 o'clock at night, except on wash
day, and then they begin nt 4 a.m.,
and on baking day when they begin
the night before. Second .that a minimum standard of living run alongside
of the minimum wage and be fixed at
what the cost of food statistician of
the province figures out Is necessary
to maintain health, enjoyment and efficiency, and that the said minimum
wage do not lag behind this standard
of living. Third, that every woman
be given an opportunity to bring forth
her young under the best conditions
for herself and her offspring and
that all the expenses ln connection
•vith the development of her reproductive function from the time she has had
to leave her employment until she Is
restored to economic life be paid out
of tht public treasury.

Mrs. Smith is to he congratulated
upon the brevity of her speech on

Three sticks of Giant Stumping
Powder will do as much work
as ten horses and do it quicker,
cheaper and better.
British Columbia Experimental Farms,
Farmers' Institutes and farmers in practically
every town from Prince Rupert to Fernie
are constant users of
—the first stumping powder made in Canada.
If you have not already tried Giant Stumping
Powder, test it the next time you blast. You
will find that it goes further and therefore
exists less to use. When farmers use Giant
once, they always insist upon having «■■

The Ford is Now Considered a Necessity
for Large-Scale Farming
WHETHER you are doing work on a large scale, or a small
scale, you endeavor to reduce the delays of your farm
machinery to a minimum|antl"save time. A Ford will assist
you in doing these two things.
If your tractor runs short of gasoline, the Ford will bring a few cans
light to the spot and greatly shorten the delay. Or if you need
• repair, or some new plow points, you can "run" the errand to
town and back in one-third the time it would take with a horse
and rig.
With a Ford you can supervise the work on your ranch much more
thoroughly. You can get your mail and supplies of tenor, and take
more enjoyment out of prairie life. A Ford will do all these things
nnd many more, and at the same time save you money.
The strength and endurance of the Ford has been proved the
vorld over.   It is equal to the western roads and the distances.
The Ford is the car for the Western Farmer.

them are Arthur Maltland, an impecunious young author, nephew of a peppery old colonel. To obtain a large
allowance from the colonel. Arthur
has written him that he Is married
and in response to request for his
wife's portrait has sent him a photo
of Millie Brown. The Colonel, accompanied 'by his daughter, a fofrmer
sweetheart of Arthur's, and his private secretary, arrives unexpectedly

With this basis all'sorts of laughable

colonel's secretary , also a comic

Tin annual meeting of the Windermere District Board of Trade was
well attended this yeaf when allowance is made for the large number of
late members who hi ve answered thecal I of King und Empire und gone to
the front to fight our battles. Much
of the time of the meeting was taken
up in reviews and listening to the
reports. The report of the auditor
showed the Board's funds as a whole
to be in a fair state. The other important reports were those of thie
Council and of the Mining Committee
which are given in full below.
One very pleasing feature was the
presentation of a roll of honor of men
of the District who up to about the
first of December last had left this
part to fight tho battles of the Empire There was a total number
shown on ihe list of some twenty
officers and two hundred privates.
The roll was presented by Mr. A. G.
Cuthbert and was fittingly received
by the President of the Board, Mr ,1
C, Pitts, and by Mr. T. A. Pope.
Other resolutions of Importance included a request for locnl mall sacks
to be dispatched from the local centres 10 Cranbrook nnd carried through ;
on the Kootenay Central train. .
The election of officers for the yenr 1
resulted in the re-election of Mr. j,

Military Service Act
Important Announcement to All
and to the Public Generally
IN dealing with the very large number of claims for exemption
brought forward for consideration in connection with Clan 1
under the Military Service Act, it has occurred, as was inevitable, that as a result of false statements and difficulties put in the
Way of investigation, some individuals have secured exemption
whose proper place is in the Army.
It ii not the intention of the Government to allow these men to evade permanently their obligation to bear their part in the military defence of the
Country and of the ideal* for which we are fl|htin|. To do to would defeat
the purpose of the Act, and cause grave injuitice to men In the second chut
neceiearily called out to fill their placet.
Extmptlom Granted on False Graund*
It le, therefore, propoeed to icrutinite carefully all exemptions granted to date
In order to separate those which have been granted on false or insufficient
grounds from those that are well founded.
With this object in view the various Registrars under the Military Service
Act have been instructed to issue a series of questionnaires to exempted men.
These questionnaires must be filled up correctly and returned promptly undei
penalty of forfeiture of exemption for failure to do so.
Exampted Man Who Hava Changed Addrau
It Is therefore Important in their own Interest that all exempted men who
have changed their address since their exemption was granted and who hava
not already notified the Regiitrar of such change should notify him at once.
Under the Regulations it is the duty of exempted men to keep the Regiitrar
advised of any change of address, and failure to receive tht questionnaire
bf ration of neglect of thii duty muit be treated as equivalent to failure to
return the questionnaire after receipt
Citizens Urged to Assist
In many Instances Information has been furnished by members of the public
which has led to the cancellation of exemptions obtained by false or misleading statements. Further co-operation of this character is invited. The
Qovirnment regard it as the Duty of all loyal citiiens, not only to the Country,
but to tht men at the front, to assist in thii way in securing reinforcements
on a Just and legal basis. Correspondence of thii character will be treated
at ttrlctly confidential and trill receive the fullest investigation.
Miniitir tf Juslict.
Corrttpondtnct should be directed to Robt. S. Lennle, K.C., Registrar under
tht Military Service Act, Vancouver, B.C.
