H The car routing which makes this H congestion nt one point necessary ap- H peared largely responsible. Most of H he time the cars had to watt their H turn to make the Intersection, while H passengers waited at every street H -corner west and north. H ": There were no street cars in good H condition standing idle In either car H barn during those hours. H At Intervals, however, cars for a H particular direction failed to appear H at Portage ave. and Main st. for per- H lods of as much as two minutes, when Jio crossing was cloar and patrons H were waiting, H Two hundred and thirty-six street H ars passed that intersection during H he hour, Of these, 89 were headed H lorth. 79 were headed west, and 68 H r.-ere headed south. H Too many turned south for the H umber of passengers waiting, taking H ,,' nto consideration the few lmportanr H t senger stops on the lines in that B direction, H -r here never were enough cars to H ' ndle the crowds going north on B Jnln st, and west on Portage ave. B Many cars were crowded to capac- PBVJ Itv with Portage ave. and Main st. PBVJ passengers. Before they reached PBVJ Donald st on Portage ave., where HBV :rowds as heavy as at the other cor- aaaBaaH ner waited, they were Jammed to the 1 Tho figures gathered on the number H of cars which passed the Portage aVe. and Main st intersection appear to H joint to only one solution, now the jltneyn are gone cars must be ro-H routed to come in on Portage ave. and Main st, without having to ps fl :he busy corner of those streets. ONLY 4 OBSOLETE CARS LEFT AT NORTH BARNS Every car, except four, of the North barns. Main st. and Inkster ave.. was in use between 6 and 6 o'clock. 1 Of the remaining cars, three were 'dlnklea" or the original typo of one-IH Tuctt, "see-saw" cars, and the fourth IH was a double-ender. which was the second type introduced in Winnipeg. These cars, an Inspector explained, v :re in t'ie barns to be cleaned, and :o keep the staff engaged. TV tpur tracks, running off from daln nt, were empty. 0 Occasionally there was congestion as cars arrived at the terminus from downtown, but they were regulated aftr-rdlng to schedule when they (itartei on their trip to town again. Occasionally, talso, there were lapses t levcral minutes betwen the arrival of cars but usually these intervals 'ollowed a congestion. The Inspector In charge of the barn miDrted that all trafflo was being andled satisfactorily. MAIN BARN CARS OUT TO HELP HANDLE "SWAMP" The main barn, on Main st. at As-unlbolne ave., supplied two addition-&1 r j during the rush hour. There were but 7 cars in tho barn between 5 and 6 o'clock and these were being repaired. Five bodies of what' will in two weeks be used as 'trailers" were also stored at the barn. According to the chief mechanic, M bam houid between ,15 and 20 cars during the rush hours In the past hree year. Wednesday, orderB were received from tho "chief that all available ijars and the old type "dlnkles" were to be rushed out of the barn to handle the "swamp," as the morning, noon and evening rush traffic Is known to '.be barn men. Three cars were dispatched for the Broadway route, two for Corydon ave, 2 for KUdonan, 2 for Portage and 1 for St. Boniface. There were but four dlnkles in the barn and were sent to the William, Arl-jngton and Sutherland ave. routes. 12 Lose Lives In' Fire on Steamship A.V ATLANTIC PORT, May 2 f'wo men lost their lives nnd another Is In a serious condition af a hospital as the result of a fire aboard tWe bay steamor Newahore-ia m at her dock here early today.

HUNS PREPARE ANOTHER DRIVE ON WEST FRONT (CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1) Wednesday before the positions held by the British and French troops, especially those in the hands of the British which it had teea tho ambition of the Germans to capture, separate the British and French armies, and open the way for a rush ;o the channel ports. SInco Monday, what activity there has been In this region was carried 't by the British and French; both of whom havo materially bettered their positions the French near Iocre and the British at Meteren. On both sectors ground was captured and prisoners wero taken. Offensive Not Over The pause in the offensive, however, apparently Is not to be taken an meaning the end of tho German attempts to crack the allied line. All along tho front, the Wg guns are roaring and shells of all calibre are ploughing the terrain and the areas far behind them, and fresh German reserves are being hurried to tho front. Indeed, advices from the British front in Flanders are to the effect that another furious drive by Von Arnim la in Immediate prospect. Emperor William has been at tho front delivering flamboyant speechtes to the troops in an endeavor to spur .tliem on to victory. Meanwhile British and French artillery are sending a veritable rain of shells on Mont Kemmel. the chief" point of vantage gained by the Germans in the Ypres sector. Thus far the allied guns have held back all attempts by the enemy to reinforce his men on the Mil, and if the good work is kept up, the hill top Is likely soon to prove to be a death tran for Its oaDtors. trap ior us captors. Confidence in Foch Nothing as yet has been vouchsafed regarding "the lnter-allled war council which is holding sessions at Versailles which are expected to bring forth decisions of great moment. Representatives of all thb allies are in attendance. Great faith In the ability of Gen. Foch and the allied commanders on the west front again has been expressed by M. Clemenceau, tho French rremler. The fighting on all the other fronts, except in Palestine and Mesopotamia, continues of a minor character. In both the latter theatres, However, the British have returned to tho attack and gained important successes over the Turks. Progress has been made north of Bagdad, along tho Tigris river, and In Palestine; several positions have been captured and' prisoners taken. 5,000 HUN PRISONERS TAKEN BY BRITISH LONDON, May 2 "The enemj's artillery was active Wednesday against tho hack areas In tho neighborhood of Bethune and has heavily shelled French positions on the Locre sector," says Field-Marshal Hale's communication Issued Wednesday.

FPU HEROIC FEAT (CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1) Major Wilfrid K Snow, II.A.F.. France. In the letter Major Snow told ois that Allan had performed a wonderful feat and that he had been rocommonded for decoration, but we had no Idea that ho would receive a Victoria Cross." "Allan is such a boy." the mother continued. "He left Winnipeg Just three days after he had celebrated his eighteenth birthday. Ke had Just finished his studies on the Stonewall Collegiate school and was preparing to enter the University of Manitoba when he decided to enlist In the Royal Flying corps. "He left here the middle of last August and arrived In England the first of September. He went to France In November." Official Story of Deed The official story of Lieut. Mc-Ixsod's feat follows: "The Victoria Cross has been awarded to Second Lieut Alan A. McLeod, who, whilst flying with an observer, Lieut. W. Hammond, In a bombing machine, gunning a hostile formation, was attacked at a height of 6,000 feet by eight enemy trl-planes. By skilful manoeuvring he enabled his observer to shoot down three of these out of control. Lieut. McLeod was by this time wounded five times. A bullet penetrated the petrol tank and set fire to his machine. 1U then climbed out to the left bottom plane, controlling tho machine from the sldo of the fuse lage and by side-slipping steeply kept tho flames to one side, enabling the observer to continue firing until the ground was reached. The observer had been wounded six times; and when the machine crashed In No Man's Land, Lieut. McLeod. despite his own wounds, dragged him away from the burning wreckage at great personal risk from heavy enemy machine-gun fire. Although again wounded by a bomb, Lieut. MoLcod managed to place Lieut. Hammond In comparative safety before he fell himself from exhaustion and loss of blood." It Is understood Lieut. McLeod Is In a London hospital and that his condition is serious. Another V.C. Awarded The Victoria Cross has also been awarded to Llc-ut. Allen Oerrard, for displaying unusual daring. Gerrard, when on an offensive patrol, with two other officers, attacked five enemy airplanes, shooting one down in flames. Ho then- attacked an enemy airdrome, engaging single-handed some 19 machines, which either were landing or starting off. and crashed one of them against the airdrome. A large number of machines then attacked Gerrard. hut seeing one of his companions In difficulty he went to his assistance and destroyed a third enemy -machine. Fresh enemy machines were arising from the airdrome, and he attacked them one after another, and only retreated when ordered to do so. Five machines pursued him, but ho turned, although apparently wounded, and repeatedly attacked them until, overwhelmed by numbers, he was driven down.
