Lawrence  Hopkins,  of Oxford, Alaba'ma.  '���������They're off!.  "It sends a thrill through you as  you bear their cry and rise up and  find yourself in a crowd of men;  pausing a moment to light our pipes  or cigarettes, and as we are hurrying  forward with glistening steel in our  hands to meet the foe.  "If it were not for these other men  . moving along heavily laden to keep  .pace with the barrage one might  well stand in amazement at a wilder  ne^s suddenly become crowded with  swaying humanity bravely attempting to weather the furious storm.  "The   big   guns   roll  like heavy  bunder, the little field batteries answer   with   a   bark, shells scream,  whistle,   howl, - according   to  their  moods.  "The quick s'-jccato coughing   of  miching guns goes  on   un :easingly  all around you and is aw������l owed up  in its echoes.  There is a  spatter   of  rifle bullets as they wh'z by you and  - you wonder that you are untouched.  Barbed wire tears   your   clothes to  pieces;   mud  sticks  them   together  again.   Birds fly at your   feet   and  from the sky winged airplanes swoop  down. Spitfire tanks plod on behind,  crashing   and     crushing;   burning,  ��������� :'boiling'oil sends  flames leaping   to  the clouae;   molten   phosphorus is  poured into    dugouts. There is  gas  to blind and choke you.  "There are laughs and cries; the  laugh of a comrade'us he struggles  on, or the cry of another as he drops  his rifle and puts his hand to his  heart���������his last cry. There is the yell  of the hunter, the wild crying despair of the hunted. The plunk of  the mortars and the buarsting of the  bombs add to the tumult of the I  storm.  "Stretcher- bearers rush to and fro,  running zig zag across the battlefield  with their messages. Then I drop  into a shell hole, the cold sweat running of! my face, and breathe. Take  my compass out, get direction adjusted and when the barrage lifts I  dive into the tornado again���������and so  on. Germans are scarce; they are  down below. 'Moppers up' behind  will deal with them. Over broken  trenches and torn ground, slipping,  self I am on a stretcher and some  one with a smile all over his bronzed  face offers me cigarette.  "Yes, we ran the Huns for six  ;dayp and five nights, and I did not  want to eat or sleep I tell you it was  grand, and if I hadn't been gassed I  feel like I could still be running  them. We started on the 24th day  of July, my birthday, and, mother,  dear, I took no prisoners.  "A German officer said to his  men: 'Why do you run; is not Gott  mit you?' .And the German soldiers  answered: 'Yes, but the Americans  are mit the French.'"

All peoples, even the Germans, vant  to hang your poor old fadder, und  he never done nothings. I can prove  it by Hindenburg. He done it.  The "Me und Gott" beezness is  played out, too, Villie, ^II worked  for so long mid peoples *vhat mine  brave soldiers vas pointing a gun at.  Ven dem alleys took the guns avay  from mine brave soldiers, it fizzled  out. Even mine brave soldiers, be  ing licked good, could not be fooled  no longer mid it; I hear that cry,  "To hell mid the kaiser," too, so-1  vent to Holland. I don't vant to go  to hell; but, Villie, pray, maybe I  go anyhow.  ��������� Dem dunder blitzen alleys say  I  started this war.

Say you  ain't,   say   anydings but   that; but  come to tink, dat nose of yours!    If  you vas put in mid a den  of monkeys  everjbodys   could  pick   you  you out. I feats for you, mine son.  I am living in Holland  mid   the  Dutch und the climate is goodt, but  it iss getting warmer for me  all the  times. Yesterdays I meets  up  mid  one of dem tarn Americans. He says  to your fadder, "Bill, I vill give you  dirty dollars a week to go  to Amer.  ica; the boys vant to throw eggs  at  you."    The   Dutch  have disterned  your   poor old father.    I can't go  avay.    Who vants to go   avay?   My  health is not goodt lately.    I see an  ad   in   a  Dutch pader about Lydia  Pinkham's Compound.    Maybe  dat  vill cure me. Since going avay from  Germany so quickly I  feel yellow  from mine head to mine toes.

Findlay,?. former prohibition commissioner for British  Columbia, through his counsel, Alex Henderson, K.C.  pleaded guilty this morning in  nolice~ court to the charge of  importing approximately 700  cases of intoxicating liqnor  into the province contrary to  the recent federal order-in-  council.  Magistrate Stewart said: "I  think this is a case of wholesale importation into the province by one in authority. In  my opinion, I should impose  the maximum penalty. I  therefore fine "the accused  $1000, and in default; imprisonment for six months."  j $50,000,000 will be required for completing the program of fche imperial  munitions board in Canada Fifty  million dollars in addition to what; has  already been arranged will be re*  quired for the purchase of tins year's  grain crop.  The remaining $100,000,000 will  cover purchases of foodstuffs, include  ing meats, lard and dairy products  and sundry other Canadian commodities. Until exchange conditions between England and America materially improve it will be necessary for  Canada to con tin ne laige credits for  purchases of producfcs.  WILL BE GUEST  OF KING GEORG  Victoria,    Dec.'  18���������The  warrant issued last night  for  the.|^rest of Walter C. Find-  \i������y,; former prohibition  com-  missioner,on a criminal charge  of breach of trust, has not yet  served, and it is thought generally that Findlay has crossed  the   border into  the United  States. Official circles are undecided     on    the    question  whether or not Findlay can be  extradited, if he is located, on  the present charge.  'T know that Findlay went  to Seattle," said City Prosecutor Harrison tnis afternoon to  the police commissioners when  they     met     to     investigate  charges  which   Findlay   had  made that the prohibition act  was not being enforced properly in th:s city.    Findlay had  been summoned to appear today before the commissioners,  but there was no  word from  him.  General Petain's stonelike expres  sion frequently relaxes into a rather  whimsicel smile, and,on occasion, he  can speak with warmth of eloquence  which, devoid of all   fine  phrasing,  nevertheless carries his every  word  straight to   the heart.    His   poilus  adore  him   despite his   uncompromising firmness; he is fair in  his  judgments and he knows just   how  td-/mingle  with  his   men.    By his  mere presence and  tact  he calmed  all the agitation which followed  the  offensive of April, 1917, the causes  of which are well known   today and  could easily be guessed then.  Wilson's Visit to England  Will Probably be Made  Before the First of the  New Year  Major-General Edward M. Lewip,  who commands the Tbirteen>division  of the .National Guard troops from  the   Carolinas   and   Tennessee, is a  native of Indiana and, a West Point:  er ofthe class of 1886.    His   entire  career   up   to   the   entrance of the  United into the   European   conflict  was in the infantry, he having served at various periods in the Eighth, | tafcive cjrcles t0 be untrue  Eleventh,    Sixteenth,     Nineteenth  and Twentieth regiments.  He served  in tbe Spanish war as a  captain   of  the Twentieth   infantry   and in the  Philippine campaigns as a battalion  commander of the Sixteenth infantry. General Lewis was a classmate  at West Point of General* Persking,  and these twh officers have been tbe  closest of friends during their entire  army career. He is fifty-five years  years of age.

This official  announcement was made tonight.  The British Labor party has  invited President Wilson to  attend a national gathering of  British labor to be held in the  president's honor when he  visits Londen, according to  the Daily Telegraph. It is  hoped that the president will  accept the invitation.  Dublin, Dec. 19.���������A statement published in London  that the Irish"party'wa^jto"-  send delegates to Paris to discuss home rule with President  Wilson is declared in authori-  It  is impossible to learn whether  the  Sinn   Feiners  will   send  delegates, but this is not believed to be likely in view of  the fact that the lord mayor  of Dublin, who is aSinnFein-  er, is organizing  meetings  to  invite President   Wilson   to  Ireland.

FRIDAY, DECEMBER 20, 1918  Next week will bring the merriest Christmas that we have had since 1913. It is a grand  thing to know that the carnage in Europe has  ceased and that peace now practically reigns  over the entire world, and the knowledge that  our arms have gained a glorious victory will  bring zest to the merriment in all homes to  which the conflict has not brought vacant  chairs. The Sun wishes its readers a very  merry Christmas.  The .municipal election will not be staged  until after the Christmas holidays, and none  of our citizens have vet thought it worth while  to lay -awake ��������� nights scheming how to break  into the ci������y council. It looks very much as  if the office would have to. hunt the man this  year, as none of our leading citizens appear to  be  anxious  to  pilot  the  city through 1919.  In the manufacturing, commercial and financial fields tremendous preparations are  being  made in England-to meet the future.  In July,  1916, Premier Lloyd George appointed a special committee, under the cnairmanship of Rt.  Hon. Lord Balfour, to consider the  commercial and industrial policy to be followed after  the war.    While this committee was conducting its investigations, special committees  appointed by the board of trade (which is a department of the British government) were active in consideration of definite proposals  affecting the most important and stable trades.  These included  the iron and steel, engineering, electrical and   non-ferrous  metal  trades;'  the  woollen  and  worsted, silk, linen, cotton,  jute  and shipbuilding industries; the  carpet  associations, the lace and   embroidery   trades  and the cotton hosiery and fabric glove industries.    Inquiries were largely-con fined to supply of raw materials, production and  marketing.   A summary-of the  conclusions'reached  gives significant indication of the trend of industrial opinion.

In these days of labor shortage, no sympa  thy need be wasted on the man who is posing  as a candidate foe the  distinguished  service  medal for doing alone'for a few days the work  that he should do alone all the time.  Not all high ideals are commendable. The  pug who blackens his tall antagonist's'optics  may also be said to be a purveyor of high  eye-deals.  When you buy war savings stamps you do  not give your money, you loan it at a rate of  interest exceeding 4|- per cent, compounded  semi-annually. You help your government,  but you help yourself even more.  The editor has experienced so much amusement during the past week in grappling with  the grip, that it is quite possible that this issue  of The Sun is a trifle brighter than it usually is.  Our chief of police is also a man of high  eye-deals.  President Wilson is the man of the hour.  All the civilized nations of the earth are acclaiming him a citizen of the world. His reception in Paris was greater than that of a  king, and his visit to London will be welcomed  with equal warmth. Those who understand  the president will not begrudge him the homage that is laid at his feet. All thinking men  believe that he is honest in his desire to see a  treaty formulated at the peace conference that  will do away with war forever, and most nations are beginning to believe that it if he can  not find a remedy to prevent war no other  man can.
